First Syria 'rebels' armed and trained by CIA 'on way to battlefield'

First Syria 'rebels' armed and trained by CIA 'on way to battlefield' 03 Sep 2013 The first cell of Syrian 'rebels' trained and armed by the CIA is making its way to the battlefield, President Barack Obama has reportedly told senators. Mr Obama said that a 50-man [terrorist] cell, believed to have been trained by US special forces in Jordan, was making its way across the border into Syria, according to the New York Times. The deployment of the rebel unit seems to be the first tangible measure of support since Mr Obama announced in June that the US would begin providing the opposition with small arms.

Two sociopath peas is a pod: Boehner says he'll back Obama on Syria strikes 03 Sep 2013 House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, on Tuesday endorsed President Barack Obama’s call for military action in Syria. The top elected Republican in Washington, Boehner said following a meeting at the White House that he intended to support Obama’s plan for limited strikes against the regime of Bashar Assad in Syria. "I am going to support the president's call for action,” he told reporters. "I believe my colleagues should support this call for action."

Congress moves to approve Syria strike

Congress moves to approve Syria strike 03 Sep 2013 Obama's battle to get congressional approval for a military strike on Syria moved a step closer Tuesday, with leaders of both parties in Congress announcing that the United States should respond to Syrian President Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons. US President Barack Obama convinced leaders of both Democrats and Republicans in Congress to support his request for the authorization of a military strike on Syria. After a meeting with more than a dozen senior lawmakers this week, members of both parties went public, praising Obama's plan and pledging a 'yes' vote on the operation against the Syrian government.

Syrian rebels used Sarin nerve gas, not Assad's government: U.N. official

Syrian rebels used Sarin nerve gas, not Assad's government: U.N. official 06 May 2013 Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday. Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were "strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof," that rebels seeking to oust Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent. But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.

McCain playing poker on his iPhone during Syria hearing

McCain playing poker on his iPhone during Syria hearing 03 Sep 2013 (Washington Post) Senator John McCain (R-Sociopath-Ariz.) plays poker on his IPhone during a U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing where Secretary of State JohnKerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey testify concerning the use of force in Syria, on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

Sweden Investigates Lost WikiLeaks Luggage, Including Evidence of Alleged U.S. War Crime in Afghanistan

Sweden Investigates Lost WikiLeaks Luggage, Including Evidence of Alleged U.S. War Crime in Afghanistan 03 Sep 2013 Swedish police opened an investigation Tuesday after WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange urged them to find out what happened to a suitcase he suspects was stolen from him in 2010 by intelligence agents as he traveled from Sweden to Germany. The suitcase contained three laptops that had WikiLeaks materials, including evidence of a war crime allegedly committed by U.S. troops in Afghanistan, according to an affidavit that Assange's lawyer filed along with a criminal complaint to police at Stockholm's Arlanda Airport. In the affidavit, Assange suggested his bag may have been illegally seized "as part of an intelligence operation with the purpose of gathering information about me."

Vladimir Putin takes field trip to aquarium, gives high five to walrus 02 Sep 2013 Russian President Vladimir Putin visited an "oceanarium" that is being built on Russky Island in Vladivostok on Sunday. While there, according to the Presidential Press and Information Office, Putin "watched brief performances by dolphins and walruses" and toured the construction. Putin also posed for photos with some of the animals and gave a high five to one of the walruses. The English-language recap of the trip posted by the Presidential Press and Information Office noted Putin is "monitoring the construction work and has visited the site on a number of occasions already."

White House to Congress: Help protect Israel

Ah, then came the dawn. White House to Congress: Help protect Israel 02 Sep 2013 The Obama administration is using a time-tested pitch to get Congress to back military strikes in Syria: It will help protect Israel. Israel's enemies, including Iran and the terrorist rebel group Hezbollah, could be emboldened if Congress fails to approve action against the regime government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, senior administration officials said Saturday. And for the second day in a row, President Barack Obama publicly cited the threat against Israel if Assad's reported use of chemical weapons goes unchecked. Secretary of State John Kerry also referred to Israel repeatedly as he made the rounds on all five major Sunday morning news shows -- as well as comparing Assad to Adolf Hitler. [Media: Why is it the 'Assad regime' but the 'Obama administration?' Obama's killed thousands of civilians with drones worldwide. --LRP]

KBR Seeks Combat Immunity in Soldier Toxic-Exposure Suit

KBR Seeks Combat Immunity in Soldier Toxic-Exposure Suit 03 Sep 2013 KBR Inc. is invoking federal laws shielding contractors during wartime to avoid a Texas trial over injuries claimed by troops who were exposed to [KBR's] toxic chemicals while guarding a work site in Iraq. KBR is set to argue today before a U.S. Court of Appeals panel in El Paso, Texas, that such contractor-on-the-battlefield statutes act as a firewall to litigation. Lawyers for injured soldiers are urging the three-judge panel to reject KBR's theory that the Houston-based company is immune from the lawsuits.

Iraq: British Troops Deny Mutilation Claims

Iraq: British Troops Deny Mutilation Claims 02 Sep 2013 Bodies of insurgents killed in a battle in Iraq were not mutilated by British troops, nor were detainees mistreated, a public inquiry has heard. On the first day of evidence from military witnesses, the Al-Sweady Inquiry was told that claims that Iraqis killed in the Battle of Danny Boy were mutilated were "baseless rumours" [?] spread to discredit coalition forces. The inquiry is examining claims that 20 or more Iraqis were unlawfully killed at Camp Abu Naji (CAN) near Majar-al-Kabir on May 14 and 15, 2004, and that detainees  prisoners were ill-treated there and later at Shaibah Logistics Base.

British police arrest 16 non-proliferation activists at nuclear site

British police arrest 16 non-proliferation activists at nuclear site 02 Sep 2013 Police have arrested 16 people attending a demonstration at a nuclear weapons facility owned by UK's Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE). The rally started on early Monday in the southern village Burghfield, Berkshire with protestors storming the site, trying to blockade its access points, including a public highway. The civil resistance group have targeted their campaign at Britain's nuclear weapons policy. They want disarmament of nukes and a halt to the UK's Trident nuclear missile system.

Japan to spend $500m on radioactive water leaks at Fukushima

Japan to spend $500m on radioactive water leaks at Fukushima 03 Sep 2013 Japan will spend up to $500 million of public funds to tackle radioactive water leaks at Fukushima, reports said Tuesday, as the government vowed to take the lead in the 'clean-up.' Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will gather members of his nuclear disaster response team to decide on the government response to stop toxic waste leaking into the Pacific ocean from the crippled plant, officials said. Water from nearby hillsides has been flowing under the plant and mixing with polluted water that has already seeped into the ground, resulting in mildly radioactive water reaching the sea.

U.S. intelligence agencies spend millions to hunt for insider threats, document shows

U.S. intelligence agencies spend millions to hunt for insider threats, document shows 01 Sep 2013 The U.S. government suspects that individuals with connections to al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh] and other hostile groups have repeatedly sought to obtain jobs in the intelligence community, and it reinvestigates thousands of employees a year to reduce the threat that one of its own may be trying to compromise closely held secrets, according to a classified budget document. The CIA found that among a subset of job seekers whose backgrounds raised questions, roughly one out of every five had "significant terrorist and/or hostile intelligence connections," according to the document, which was provided to The Washington Post by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

US Marine website targeted by pro-Assad hackers

US Marine website targeted by pro-Assad hackers 02 Sep 2013 Pro-Syrian regime hackers posted messages on a US Marine Corps recruiting website on Monday, urging troops to defy orders from President Barack Obama. The hackers showed photos of people in American uniforms holding hand-written signs saying they would not fight for 'al-Qaeda' in Syria. "Obama is a traitor who wants to put your lives in danger to rescue al-Qaeda insurgents," the message read, according to a screenshot from The Wall Street Journal.

Obama's proposal seeks broad war power, despite vow of limits

Obama's proposal seeks broad war power, despite vow of limits 01 Sep 2013 While President Barack Obama insists he wants only a limited air attack on Syria, his proposed authorization of force would empower him to do much more than that. The substantive part of Obama's proposed authorization of the use of military force, conveyed to congressional leaders over the weekend, contains 172 words. That's significantly more than either the 1964 Tonkin Gulf [aka false flag] Resolution authorizing the Vietnam War or the 2001 resolution authorizing retaliation for the 9/11 terror attacks [aka false flag], two measures that later became notorious for how aggressively presidents used them.

To some, US case for Syrian gas attack and need for strike has too many holes

To some, US case for Syrian gas attack and need for strike has too many holes 02 Sep 2013 The Obama administration's public case for attacking Syria is riddled with inconsistencies and hinges mainly on circumstantial evidence [aka lies], undermining U.S. efforts this week to build support at home and abroad for a punitive strike against Bashar Assad's government. The case Secretary of State John Kerry laid out last Friday contained claims that were disputed by the United Nations, inconsistent in some details with British and French intelligence reports or lacking sufficient transparency for international chemical weapons experts to accept at face value. After the false weapons claims [aka lies] preceding the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, the threshold for evidence to support intervention is exceedingly high.

US Navy deploys five warships, one amphibious ship to Mediterranean for Syria

US Navy deploys five warships, one amphibious ship to Mediterranean for Syria 02 Sep 2013 The US Navy has deployed an amphibious transport ship to the Mediterranean, where five destroyers are already in place for possible missile strikes on Syria, a defense official said Sunday. The USS San Antonio, with several helicopters and hundreds of Marines on board, is "on station in the Eastern Mediterranean" but "has received no specific tasking," said the defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. Unlike the destroyers deployed to the area, the San Antonio carries no Tomahawk cruise missiles but can ferry up to four helicopters and is designed to bring Marines ashore by chopper or landing craft.

CNN Caught Staging News Segments on Syria With Actors

CNN Caught Staging News Segments on Syria With Actors 01 Sep 2013 Anderson Cooper and CNN have been caught staging fake news about Syria to justify military intervention. The primary "witness" that the mainstream media is using as a source in Syria has been caught staging fake news segments. Recent video evidence proves that "Syria Danny" [LOL], the supposed activist who has been begging for military intervention on CNN, is really just a paid actor and a liar. The following video shows him contradicting himself while off air, and even asking crew members to "get the gunfire sounds ready" for his video conference with Anderson Cooper on CNN. [Yes, it's reminiscent of Robbie Parker laughing and asking what he should say at his Sandy Hook presser: 'So, just read the card?' 'Yeah, just read the card.'.]

Secret program gives federal agents nearly instant access to BILLIONS of AT&T phone records without court order

REVEALED: Secret program gives federal agents nearly instant access to BILLIONS of AT&T phone records without a court order --Hemisphere program allows federal agents to access details on rolling database of 4billion calls a day that are process through AT&T switches --Secret program in place since 2007 includes records dating back to 1987 02 Sep 2013 A secret government program called Hemisphere gives federal agents nearly instantaneous access to billions of AT&T phone records dating as far back as 1987, all without a court order or the oversight of a judge, it was revealed today. It's a spying database that dwarfs anything built by the National Security Agency to date - and federal agents have routine access to it to conduct criminal investigations. The AT&T database contains the location, time, phone number and other metadata from every phone call that crosses the AT&T relay switches - an estimated 4billion calls a day. Because the database captures any call that travels across the company's lines, calls made by users of other carriers are also included. Since 2007, federal agents have been able to access the trove of information in minutes - simply by issuing a subpoena. It appears little or no judicial oversight governs the access to this information.

NSA directly spied on Brazil, Mexico leaders, mapped communications with aides - Report

NSA directly spied on Brazil, Mexico leaders, mapped communications with aides - Report 01 Sep 2013 The National Security Agency's spy program targeted the communications of the Brazilian and Mexican presidents, and in the case of Mexico's leader accessed the content of emails before he was elected, the U.S. journalist who obtained secret documents from NSA leaker Edward Snowden said Sunday. Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, told Globo's news program "Fantastico" that a document dated June 2012 shows that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's emails were being read. The document's date is a month before Pena Nieto was elected. It's not clear if the spying continues.

Taliban bombers attack US base in Afghanistan

Taliban bombers attack US base in Afghanistan 02 Sep 2013 The Taliban have attacked a US base in eastern Afghanistan, with reports of a series of explosions. The morning raid took place on the Torkham base in Nangahar province, near the Pakistan border. A Taliban spokesman told the BBC that the group was behind the attack. The forward operating base is home to some 66,000 US troops serving in Afghanistan along with forces from other countries.

U.S. positioning aircraft carrier for possible strike on Syria

U.S. positioning aircraft carrier for possible strike on Syria 02 Sep 2103 The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and other ships in its strike group are heading west toward the Red Sea to help support a limited [sic] U.S. strike on Syria, if 'needed,' defense officials said on Sunday. The Nimitz carrier strike group, which includes four destroyers and a cruiser, has no specific orders to move to the eastern Mediterranean at this point, but is moving west in the Arabian Sea so it can do so if asked. It was not immediately clear when the ships would enter the Red Sea, but they had not arrived by Sunday evening, said one official.

Maryville, TN officers train for mandatory blood draws at DUI stops

US vampire checkpoints: Maryville, TN officers train for mandatory blood draws at DUI stops 02 Aug 2013 Police officers in Maryville spent the day Friday learning how to properly handle a mandatory blood draw at DUI stops. The Blount County Substance Abuse Prevention Action Team and the Blount County District Attorney General's Office worked with the officers. The workshop explained the process of getting and serving a search warrant for a mandatory blood draw.

Government let British company export nerve gas chemicals to Syria

Government let British company export nerve gas chemicals to Syria 01 Sep 2013 The Government was accused of "breathtaking laxity" in its arms controls tonight after it emerged that officials authorised the export to Syria of two chemicals capable of being used to make a nerve agent such as sarin a year ago. The Business Secretary, Vince Cable, will on Monday be asked by MPs to explain why a British company was granted export licences for the dual-use substances for six months in 2012 while Syria's civil war was raging and concern was rife that the government could use chemical weapons on its own people. The disclosure of the licences for potassium fluoride and sodium fluoride, which can both be used as precursor chemicals in the manufacture of nerve gas, came as the US Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States had evidence that sarin gas was used in last month's atrocity [by the CIA-backed 'rebels'] in Damascus.

Syria intervention plan fueled by oil interests, not chemical weapon concern

Syria intervention plan fueled by oil interests, not chemical weapon concern 30 Aug 2013 In 2009 - the same year former French foreign minister Dumas alleges the British began planning operations in Syria - Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter's North field, contiguous with Iran's South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets - albeit crucially bypassing Russia. Assad's rationale was "to protect the interests of [his] Russian ally, which is Europe's top supplier of natural gas." Instead, the following year, Assad pursued negotiations for an alternative $10 billion pipeline plan with Iran, across Iraq to Syria, that would also potentially allow Iran to supply gas to Europe from its South Pars field shared with Qatar. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the project was signed in July 2012 - just as Syria's civil war was spreading to Damascus and Aleppo - and earlier this year Iraq signed a framework agreement for construction of the gas pipelines.

'IDF soldiers mass on Lebanese border'

'IDF soldiers mass on Lebanese border' --Media reports claim Israeli forces have mobilized in the north ahead of a possible US attack on Syria 31 Aug 2013 Lebanese media reported Saturday that the IDF has mobilized a large number of troops along the Israel-Lebanon border, ahead of a likely US attack on Syria following the alleged use of chemical weapons by regime forces last week. According to the reports, which were not confirmed by the IDF, Israeli soldiers were deployed in areas bordering the eastern areas of south Lebanon, namely the Upper Galilee, the Shebaa Farms and the Golan Heights.

Lhota would have let kittens get run over, says subway shouldn't have been shut down

Lhota would have let kittens get run over, says subway shouldn't have been shut down 30 Aug 2013 (NY) The two wayward kittens who caused chaos on the B and Q lines were recovering from their adventure today, as the mayoral candidates weighed in on the frisky felines. Former MTA boss Joe Lhota (R-Terrorist) said he would have kept the trains running, rather than inconvenience hundreds of riders. The MTA cut power on Thursday morning to keep the two from getting squashed by the B and Q trains.

Only 'diplomatic support': UK Foreign Secretary says Syria military action ruled out

Only 'diplomatic support': UK Foreign Secretary says Syria military action ruled out 01 Sep 2013 William Hague, the UK's foreign secretary, has ruled out military intervention in Syria stating Britain will only be offering diplomatic support in the light of PM Cameron's defeat on the parliament vote. The UK Chancellor slammed Labour "opportunists." "Parliament has spoken. I don't think it is realistic to think that we can go back to parliament every week with the same question having received no for an answer," Hague said on the Murnaghan Show on Sky News on Sunday.

F.B.I. Increases Surveillance of Syrians in U.S.

F.B.I. Increases Surveillance of Syrians in U.S. --F.B.I. agents are expected to interview hundreds of Syrians in the coming days. 01 Sep 2013 The F.B.I. has increased its surveillance of Syrians inside the United States in response to concerns that a military strike against the government of President Bashar al-Assad could lead to terrorist attacks here or against American allies and interests abroad, according to current and former senior United States officials. The government has also taken the unusual step of warning federal agencies and private companies that American military action in Syria could spur cyberattacks, the officials said. The Department of Homeland Security and the F.B.I. have also sent out a classified bulletin alerting federal, state and local law enforcement officials of potential threats created by the Syria conflict, the officials said.

Obama asks Congress to approve military strike against Syria

Obama asks Congress to approve military strike against Syria 01 Sep 2013 President Barack Obama stepped back from the brink on Saturday and delayed an imminent military strike against Syria to seek approval from the U.S. Congress in a gamble that will test his ability to project American strength abroad and deploy his own power at home. Before Obama put on the brakes, the path had been cleared for a U.S. assault. But Obama decided to seek the backing of U.S. lawmakers before attacking, as polls showed strong opposition from Americans already weary of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Approval will take at least 10 days, if it comes at all.
