The same admiral also said he anticipated the need for ground troops in Libya after Qaddafi falls, according to the lawmaker. House Armed Services Committee member Mike Turner (R-OH) told The Cable that U.S. Admiral Samuel Locklear, commander of the NATO Joint Operations Command in Naples, Italy, told him last month that NATO forces are actively targeting and trying to kill Qaddafi, despite the fact that the Obama administration continues to insist that "regime change" is not the goal and is not authorized by the U.N. mandate authorizing the war.

Katrina's Mayor Nagin ordered to get injections, feared CIA poisoning plot

June 26, 2011 by legitgov

Katrina's Mayor Nagin ordered to get injections, feared CIA poisoning plot 25 Jun 2011 Ray Nagin's memoir, "Katrina's Secrets: Storms After the Storm," was released Wednesday. Among the more shocking revelations is the former New Orleans Mayor's account of the evening of Aug. 30, 2005. Nagin worried about becoming a target of sinister forces after his famous Sept. 1, 2005, rant on WWL-AM. "I thought to myself, 'I'm a dead man,'" he writes. "I started wondering if during the night I would be visited by specially trained CIA agents. Could they secretly shoot me with a miniature, slow-acting poison dart?" On the Monday after the storm, Nagin visited the USS Iwo Jima, an amphibious assault ship that served as a base of federal operations. There, he was escorted to an infirmary where two medical staffers "had orders to examine me and give me shots. I was still a little paranoid and again started imagining a secret CIA plot where in six months I would be gone," he writes. "After thinking for a minute, I said to them, 'Okay, you can give me shots, but I want you to do the same for my two security guys.'"

All US troops out of Afghanistan now!

June 25, 2011 by legitgov

All US troops out of Afghanistan now! By Bill Van Auken 24 Jun 2011 Obama's Wednesday night speech on "the way forward in Afghanistan" offered only years more of a dirty colonial war that both the American and the Afghan people overwhelmingly oppose. The empty rhetorical claims that "the tide of war is receding" and "the light of a secure peace can be seen in the distance" are belied by the undeniable facts of Obama's so-called withdrawal plan... The plan announced by Obama will spell an escalation rather than a reduction in the bloodshed in Afghanistan.
