If you ever seriously wondered why “they” hate “us,” look no further than the so-called leaders you put into power…

If half this article is true then America may be exiting the empire business a lot quicker than the Romans or the British before them. So many tears from the CIA recruiters, although questioning the policy of aggressive, illegal war against other nations is beyond their pay grade.
“The background info on these fighters is next to nothing and misleading, especially in Syria, where we don’t have a liaison relationship, and so the vast majority of even check-the-box vetting is by third parties [who are] out-of-the-country players with a stake in the game.”
Looks a lot like knowingly giving material support to terrorists. I don’t believe there is an exception clause for your motivation for doing so. These are conspiracies, crimes, war crimes, crimes against the peace: Nuremberg violations. And of course they are directly on the wrong side of the bogus “war on terrorism.” Welcome to the CIA.
It’s like running a want-ad that says, ‘Only Moderates Show Up for Free Weapons and Paid Training,’ and believing that is effective screening.”

The Daily Beast reports some slightly odd policy dimensions to this alleged war on ISIS:
What they don’t talk about are the numerous partners or allies who currently fund, train and arm various factions of ISIS. Without that bigger picture, the policy makes no sense. So the military has no comprehension, or at least isn’t allowed to talk about, their understanding of the larger picture.
It seems like this “short leash” the US military is on plays into the idea of not bombing your allies’ favorite pet terrorists.
“Pentagon leaders tell The Daily Beast, is the ISIS war’s decision-making process, run by National Security Adviser Susan Rice. It’s been manic and obsessed with the tiniest of details. Officials talk of sudden and frequent meetings of the National Security Council and the so-called Principals Committee of top defense, intelligence, and foreign policy officials (an NSC and three PCs in one week this month); a barrage of questions from the NSC to the agencies that create mountains of paperwork for overworked staffers; and NSC insistence on deciding minor issues even at the operational level.”
There is a fraud here. It’s not a “war on ISIS” as the US public is being sold. Far from it. It never was. It never will be. ISIS is the most valuable asset Washington and friends have at this point. The terror state is WINNING, making gains, moving the ball downfield. They have rolled back Shia and Iranian influence in Iraq, no small matter. The Shiite government of Iraq is the one that kicked the US military out in the first place. Does no one remember anything prior to last week?
ISIS is also trying like hell to kill Bashar Al Assad, Washington’s enemy. In that matter they are allies. What’s more, ISIS is the most successful of the allies in the terror war on Syria.
These reasons explain the “micromanagement” and “short leash” the US military is now put on.

Since 2004 drone strikes have killed 2,379 human beings. Of those thousands killed, only 12% could be positively identified as “militants”. Drone strike victims are overwhelmingly innocent civilians.

These innocents are mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, grandmas, old, young, and they are NOT terrorists.
The US drone policy by all evidence is not making us safer. The opposite is happening: anti-American sentiment fuels terrorism.
A year ago for the first time drone survivor families from Pakistan came to the United States to testify before Congress. Conversations have since changed on Capitol Hill and more members of Congress are paying attention and asking the right questions. The number of US airstrikes in Pakistan has been declining in volume every year but there is still much more work to be done**. We need to continue to ramp up the public pressure against drone strikes.
Sign the petition to stop killing innocent civilians.
In Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars, the eighth full-length feature documentary from Brave New Foundation, director Robert Greenwald investigates the impact of U.S. drone strikes at home and abroad through more than 70 separate interviews, including a former American drone operator who shares what he has witnessed in his own words, Pakistani families mourning loved ones and seeking legal redress, investigative journalists pursuing the truth, and top military officials warning against blowback from the loss of innocent life.
Throughout Unmanned, Greenwald intersperses in-depth interviews with never-before-seen footage from the tribal regions in Pakistan to humanize those who have been impacted by our drone policy. This footage, alongside interviews with Pakistani drone survivors, describes the brutal reality of drone attacks ordered during the Obama Administration. The film highlights the stories of 16 year old Tariq Aziz, killed by a drone a mere week after he participated in a public conference in Islamabad in 2011, and a school teacher, Rafiq ur Rehman, grappling with the loss of his elderly mother and the hospitalization of his children due to a drone strike last year, showing how delicate life can be in this virtual war where no one is accepting responsibility for the casualties.

Another White House flack, Eric Schultz, didn’t like being pressed for answers about the Fast and Furious scandal in which American agents directed guns into the arms of Mexican drug lords. “Goddammit, Sharyl!” he screamed at her. “The Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, The New York Times is reasonable. You’re the only one who’s not reasonable!”

Typical of the Liar in Chief, he tells the nation one thing, and his loyal minions spin the news cycle. Behind the scenes, though, things are FUBAR and upside down.
“It’s not tight,” a visibly angry Mr. Obama said of the response, according to people briefed on the meeting. He told aides they needed to get ahead of events and demanded a more hands-on approach, particularly from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “He was not satisfied with the response,” a senior official said.”
Neither are we.
The outbreak was known since at least last December (2013). Still the border is wide open to anyone who feels like flying here from Liberia or the other infected nations. There is at least a 21 day incubation period (some studies suggest longer) where the virus is non-detectable.
Everyone who has visited those nations needs to be quarantined, period. This is life and death with the potential to wipe out millions. The UN and CDC have already acknowledged up to 1.4 million cases predicted by January 20 of 2015. This disease has the capacity for exponential growth. Drastic measures need to be implemented immediately. Anything less is criminal negligence.
