MI6 source who claimed Saddam had 'spherical glass containers' full of chemical weapons was actually describing scenes from Hollywood blockbuster The Rock | 06 July 2016 | MI6 has been ridiculed for relying on a 'key' Iraqi source who described unrealistic scenes from Hollywood Blockbuster The Rock. The Chilcot inquiry highlighted the ludicrous episode as it slammed flawed intelligence assessments that repeatedly suggested Saddam Hussein had significant WMD capabilities - even though no weapons were found...A report in April 2003 included material from the source suggesting that they had seen spherical glass containers filled with chemical weapons agents. However, the report did not include the caveat from officials who pointed out that 'the source's description of the device and its spherical glass contents was "remarkably similar to the fictional chemical weapon portrayed in the film The Rock".'

Blair described his decision to join the US attack as "the hardest, most momentous, most agonising decision I took in 10 years as British prime minister"...But asked whether invading Iraq was a mistake Blair was strikingly unrepentant. "I believe we made the right decision and the world is better and safer," he declared.

The Trump campaign announced Wednesday that more than 400,000 supporters made donations in June, with more than $3 million coming in just one day.

Russia: Chilcot report proves Iraq war was 'unjust and dangerous'

July 6, 2016 by legitgov

Russia: Chilcot report proves Iraq war was 'unjust and dangerous' --Russian embassy in London tweets graphic saying: 'Keep Calm but I Told You So', while Arab media remain largely silent | 06 July 2016 | Russia has claimed it warned Britain of the consequences of the "unjust and highly dangerous" Iraq war, as Sir John Chilcot published his report into the 2003 invasion after a seven-year delay. Soon after the inquiry's findings were released on Wednesday, the Russian embassy in London tweeted a graphic with the text "Keep Calm but I Told You So". It also wrote: "#Chilcot inquiry: No real WMD in Baghdad, unjust & highly dangerous war. The entire region on the receiving end." The message is consistent with Russian opposition to the 2003 invasion, the Nato intervention in Libya in 2011 and Moscow's continued backing for Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad.

Chilcot exposes how Blair kept ministers and generals in the dark

July 6, 2016 by walden9

Chilcot exposes how Blair kept ministers and generals in the dark | 6 July 2016 | Sir John Chilcot's report is more than just a carefully worded, clearly argued dissection of the decisions that led Britain to go to war in 2003, and the failures thereafter. It amounts to an uncompromising and deeply critical exposition of the way Tony Blair conducted himself in office during this period. In page after page, the report highlights how the former prime minister appeared to be privately saying one thing "sotto voce" to George W Bush, while keeping many of his own ministers – and military commanders – almost completely in the dark. It also underlines how huge decisions about the legality of the war and the execution of the military campaign were never properly discussed at cabinet meetings.

Brexit, Trumpism, Sanders, and the Decrepit State of Capitalism: Against Political Determinism

July 5, 2016 by legitgov

CLG feature: Brexit, Trumpism, Sanders, and the Decrepit State of Capitalism: Against Political Determinism by Michael Rectenwald, Ph.D. | 05 July 2016 | There's a basic article of faith in leftist thought, held especially dearly by most among the U.S. left. It is so entrenched and so seldom challenged that it has attained the status of myth, an unquestioned origin story on par with the Book of Genesis, as the latter must have been regarded within Christendom during the Middle Ages...Political determinism is the belief that the economy is driven by politics and ideology, rather than the other way around. As long as political determinism prevails on the left, the left's vision will be myopic and its recommendations will be utterly flawed and useless.

FBI ending Clinton email probe, will not recommend prosecution - director | 05 July 2016 | The FBI will recommend to the Justice Department that no prosecution is warranted as a result of its yearlong investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state, agency Director James Comey said on Tuesday. Comey said the probe found there was evidence of extremely careless handling of emails by Clinton, now the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, and that at least 110 emails contained classified information at the time they were sent. But he said the FBI's judgment was that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring charges against Clinton, who had a voluntary 3-1/2-hour interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Saturday in Washington.

What an official September 11 photographer filmed and why he says it cost him his freedom --"One thing I'm certain of is that agencies of intelligence of the United States of America knew what was going to happen and at least let it happen. Not only did they know it was going to happen, but they in fact collaborated." | 01 July 2016 | Hours after planes flew into the World Trade Center's Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, Kurt Sonnenfeld was given unrestricted access to ground zero.

Armed with camera gear, the 39-year-old was asked to film everything he saw...Fifteen years later, Sonnenfeld is on the run in Argentina. He says they want to silence him over what he saw beneath World Trade Center 6, evidence he is convinced paints the Bush Administration as big players in the deadliest attack on American soil.
