Forgotten War: Libya After NATO

McClatchy includes lots of almost humorous language to the effect ‘mistakes were made.’  This ridiculous excuse accompanies every instance of US government conspiracy and malfeasance.  For some reason the terms “error” and “mistake” serve to distract the public sufficiently such that “felony” and “war crime” never make it to print.  US personnel are only capable of making errors, never willfully committing crimes.  It’s through the looking glass imperial dogma.

Senate panel finds CIA illegally interrogated terror suspects after 9-11

 — CIA officers subjected some terrorism suspects the agency held after the Sept. 11 attacks to interrogation methods that were not approved by either the Justice Department or their own headquarters and illegally detained 26 of the 119 in CIA custody, the Senate Intelligence Committee has concluded in its still-secret report,McClatchy has learned…

Chris Hedges and other plaintiffs try in vain to keep the Obama military machine in check, even as the government claims the right to snatch and grab anyone on earth without DUE PROCESS OF LAW…

Fighting the Militarized State

If Section 1021(b)(2) is not struck down by the Supreme Court it will effectively overturn nearly 150 years of case law that repeatedly holds that the military has no jurisdiction over civilians. A U.S. citizen charged by the government with “substantially supporting” al-Qaida, the Taliban or those in the nebulous category of “associated forces” will be lawfully subject to extraordinary rendition on U.S. soil. Arrested citizens will languish in military jails, in the language of Section 1021(b)(2), until “the end of hostilities.”

This obliteration of the right to due process and a fair hearing in a court of law, along with the mass surveillance that has abolished our right to privacy, will be the legal foundation of our militarized, corporate state. Judge Forrest warned in her 112-page opinion that whole categories of Americans could, under this law, be subject to seizure by the military. She drew parallels between Section 1021(b)(2) and Korematsu v. United States, the 1944 Supreme Court ruling that supported the government’s use of the military to detain 110,000 Japanese-Americans in internment camps during World War II. Our case offers the court an opportunity, as several lawyers have pointed out, to not only protect almost 150 years of domestic law that forbids the military to carry out domestic policing but to repudiate the shameful Korematsu decision.

May as well add unaccountable torture, unlimited surveillance and show trials to the list of citizen grievances against Obama Incorporated.

 

PS

Hedges continues on Breaking the Set, mentioning totalitarianism.

Everyone in this country should watch this DemocracyNow clip and try to understand where we are now as a nation.  Washington has unilaterally declared both the environmental movement and the animal rights movements to be the “greatest terrorist threats” that the United States faces.  Neither movement has terrorized anyone.  The terror is directed in the other direction, and that is state terror, state repression in the service of ensuring profits to the industries without accountability for their practices.

People who have drawn slogans on sidewalks with chalk, according to Ryan Shapiro, have been charged with “terrorism.”  Those who take undercover video of the most horrific animal abuses are treated as “terrorists.”  This insanity is the current law of this land.   Clearly this is fascism.  It is an unholy corporate/state abuse of power and erasure of the First Amendment of the Constitution.

Why Did the FBI Label Ryan Shapiro’s Dissertation on Animal Rights a Threat to National Security?

Here is an example of the FBI perpetrating dirty tricks against US citizen activists in the service of corporate factory farms.  Your tax dollars at work funding the secret police smear campaigns:

“Organizers of the Animal Rights Movement can be discredited and removed from the scene by planting rumors that they are plants and informants.” -FBI Memo, May 12, 2005

Does Kerry Think Al-Qaeda is a Human Rights Organization?

The problem relates to Alkarama, a self-described human rights organization whose reporting the State Department, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International have uncritically incorporated into their reporting.  The problem is that the founder of Alkarama, according to the U.S. Treasury Department, is also an al-Qaeda financier.

Not just Kerry, either: Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International use bogus information.

Kiev snipers hired by Maidan leaders – leaked EU’s Ashton phone tape

Don’t let this slip down the Memory Hole.  This is how modern coups succeed.  They create violence, and the US / corporate media blames the targeted government for said violence (as in Libya, Syria and now Ukraine), when in fact the violence is caused by rogue elements in the anti-government coup itself.  This pattern repeats over and over again, and the US presstitute media covers the story wrongly 100% of the time, never retracting, never setting the record straight.  We now inhabit a fictional geo-politcal reality where our co-citizens have no idea whatsoever what actually went on.

“And second, what was quite disturbing, this same Olga [Bogomolets] told as well that all the evidence shows that the people who were killed by snipers from both sides, among policemen and then people from the streets, that they were the same snipers killing people from both sides,” the Estonian FM stressed.

The Estonian FM has described the whole sniper issue as “disturbing” and added, “it already discredits from the very beginning” the new Ukrainian power.

2 wanted device used on enemies, officials say

Looks like FBI finally did something right.  The crazies are out there.  This X-Ray emitting weapon, however, should give us all pause.  Would it have worked?  Is this available to others?
