I’ve been detailing numerous frauds, many of them with war propaganda value. These are used to demonize people half a world away. Today we have another unlikely fake, and exposed by the Daily Mirror no less, a tabloid rag upstaging the Telegraph, Fox and Daily Mail!
How many of you passed this on as real? I was tempted to here.
I want you to read an article from 1999 in the Washington Post, to finish up this thread on fakery and propaganda:
When Seeing and Hearing Isn’t Believing
By William M. Arkin
Special to washingtonpost.com
Monday, Feb. 1, 1999
“Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government.” So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command.
At least the voice sounds amazingly like him.
But it is not Steiner. It is the result of voice “morphing” technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner’s voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile…

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.”

Remember: “Al Nusra” has been on the US State Department’s terrorist list for years, and has been responsible for sarin gas attacks on civilians inside Syria.
The rationale / excuse:
U.S. intelligence officials warned that any additional American attacks against al Nusra could drive a wedge between the group and their erstwhile allies in the American-backed, moderate opposition.
The larger context is this covert illegal war crime against the government of Syria: created, sponsored, armed and trained by the USA and its Gulf dictator partners. This illegal proxy war complicates the world, understandably, and those responsible should simply be brought before a war crimes tribunal for Crimes Against the Peace and the deaths of a quarter of a million people. Hence the larger deception and utter farce that is this Syria imbroglio.
The article is chock full of the strains of imperial warmongers, the same scum of the planet who created the situation in the first place. Welcome to hell.

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.

Must-Read piece by Nafeez Ahmed in Counterpunch:
Lost in the fog of media hype was the disconcerting fact that these al-Qaeda rebel bread and oil operations in Aleppo, Deir al-Zour and Hasaka were directly and indirectly supported by the US and the European Union (EU). One account by the Washington Post for instance refers to a stealth mission in Aleppo “to deliver food and other aid to needy Syrians – all of it paid for by the US government,” including the supply of flour. “The bakery is fully supplied with flour paid for by the United States,” the Post continues, noting that local consumers, however, “credited Jabhat al-Nusra – a rebel group the United States has designated a terrorist organisation because of its ties to al-Qaeda – with providing flour to the region, though he admitted he wasn’t sure where it comes from.”
And in the same month that al-Qaeda’s control of Syria’s main oil regions in Deir al-Zour and Hasaka was confirmed, the EU voted to ease an oil embargo on Syria to allow oil to be sold on international markets from these very al-Qaeda controlled oil fields. European companies would be permitted to buy crude oil and petroleum products from these areas, although transactions would be approved by the Syrian National Coalition. Due to damaged infrastructure, oil would be trucked by road to Turkey where the nearest refineries are located.
“The logical conclusion from this craziness is that Europe will be funding al-Qaeda,” said Joshua Landis , a Syria expert at the University of Oklahoma.
