…with Noam Chomsky, when he tells the truth.

Or with the Left media, when they tell the truth.

Or with the right, when they tell the truth.

Or with the corporate news, when they tell the truth.

The problem is that this is becoming rarer and rarer. The lies are out there, but one must be knowledgeable, well-versed in the tactics of professional propagandists, and able to counter them with reliable factual sources.

This blog was created, in part, as a clearinghouse to stuff all those sources into one place and recall them later. It is a library of reports that most news doesn’t want to cover, most people never hear about, and yet are often vital to understanding what’s really going on.

Use the search function, and you will be surprised. Guaranteed.

To get you started: Just Caught Noam Chomsky Lying About Syria

P.S.

Revelations by German editor of F.A.Z., Udo Ulfkotte, that he was on the CIA’s payroll inside the German media, for years.

“I’m fed up with this propaganda.”

He wrote a book about it too.

Yesterday America revealed that only “6%” had genuine trust in the media. Gullible fools that bunch.

‘The Attacks Will Be Spectacular’

George Tenet accused the Bushies of avoiding a paper trail by ignoring meetings and warnings prior to 9/11. But the large gap in his story is that Tenet was himself actively hiding known Al Qaeda mambers living in San Diego from Counterterrorism Czar Richard Clarke. This is corroborated in the CIA Inspector General report from 2005 (page xiii, bottom). Tenet also obviously lied to the 9/11 Commission–a felony.

Consider the source…

That morning of July 10, the head of the agency’s Al Qaeda unit, Richard Blee, burst into [Cofer] Black’s office…

What can we infer from this day?

Three top CIA officers were involved: Blee, Black and Tenet. The odds are that one or more of them were not in on the grand plan, that the attacks needed to succeed in order to give America a pretext to attack Asia for the next century. The September 11th attacks provided the “new Pearl Harbor” as laid out in Rebuilding America’s Defenses, from the Project for a New American Century (PNAC).

That makes everything else in this article a half-truth, a take-it-with-a-grain-of-salt, revelation:

Rich [Blee] started by saying, ‘There will be significant terrorist attacks against the United States in the coming weeks or months.

…And the word back,” says Tenet, “‘was ‘we’re not quite ready to consider this. We don’t want the clock to start ticking.’” (Translation: they did not want a paper trail to show that they’d been warned.)

It’s entirely possible that Blee and/or Black were not co-conspirators, and that all the rest of it was theater for their benefit.

While the Inspector General makes clear that many people at CIA were aware of the Al Qaeda men in San Diego, it has a gaping hole in it, due to the ongoing cover-up of Saudi state involvement. There is a cover story that complicates matters.

It should also be mentioned that while the top CIA brass were allegedly worried that all these Al Qaeda men were “coming here,” the issuance of VISAS from SAUDI ARABIA received no attention: which is how they actually got into the country.

J. Michael Springmann has long exposed that the CIA ran the Saudi consulates and overrode State Department officers in order to sneak in “unqualified applicants” such as the 9/11 hijackers.

by Joe Giambrone

Many may know John Kiriakou as the only CIA employee who saw the inside of a jail cell as a result of the extensive torture conspiracy. Only, Kiriakou was imprisoned for exposing it to the public, not for participating in it. This miscarriage of justice was sickening at the time and widely reported. But inside the belly of the beast, Kiriakou was much more involved in the CIA’s so-called “War on Terrorism” than many may have realized.

Paul Jay and The Real News just produced a must-see 10-part interview with Kiriakou, from his home, where he remained under house arrest—an American political prisoner.

What caught my attention was the name Abu Zubaydah (or Zubaida). Kiriakou was the guy who actually captured Zubaydah in Pakistan. Zubaydah has been a glaring red flag in the government’s 9/11 story since his capture. My first email to Kiriakou explains a few of the reasons why:

Subject: Abu Zubaydah

It doesn’t seem like you were in on these revelations, but Zubaydah was reported to have linked Al Qaeda directly to the Saudi and Pakistani governments. Moussaoui did likewise. The cover-up of 9/11 is all about this link to Saudi government officials who allegedly helped the hijackers in the US. That makes the cover-up of the 28 pages (and more) high Treason. Comment?

It is my view that the CIA snatched Zubaydah from FBI and tortured him in order to shut him up, and not to get information. We have heard nothing further publicly from Mr. Zubaydah since. Have we?

“Zubaida expresses great relief at [believing he was in Saudi Arabian custody] and, under the influence of the “truth serum” sodium pentothal, tells his interrogators to call Prince Ahmed bin Salman, a nephew of the Saudi king. He provides telephone numbers from memory and says, he will tell you what to do. He proceeds to give more information and phone numbers, claiming ties with higher-ups in both the Saudi and Pakistani governments. He also names:

  • Pakistani Air Force chief Mushaf Ali Mir, who is said to be closely tied to the fundamentalists in the ISI.

  • Saudi Intelligence Minister Prince Turki al-Faisal.

  • Prince Sultan bin Faisal, another nephew of the Saudi King.

  • Prince Fahd bin Turki, another member of the Saudi royalty.

9/11 Rosetta Stone?

According to [Gerald] Posner, Zubaida claims that all of these people were intermediaries he dealt with in the frequent transfer of money to al-Qaeda. The phone numbers and other details he provides are consistent with information already known by US intelligence. Zubaida then lays out many secrets about the 9/11 attacks. One unnamed investigator will later call them The Rosetta Stone of 9/11.”

To my surprise, Kiriakou responded, and quite candidly. Here is his statement, which he gave me permission to publish:

Subject Re: John Kiriakou “Abu Zubaydah”

Dear Joe,

You raise a lot of good and very important questions.  

I’ve come to the conclusion that because virtually everything the CIA has told the American people since 9/11 has been a lie, there is no reason to believe anything else they tell us.

I, for one, believe that every American has the right to know exactly what is on those 28 pages. I’ve not seen them, but I believe they are about Saudi government culpability in the attacks. But I doubt that any of our elected officials have the guts to tell us.

All the best,

John

How many others in the government know this quite well, but are unable to speak out on it due to the retribution that would inevitably come from simply telling the truth? The government’s persecution of whistleblowers is another lever of power, which allows official conspiracies to occur, and even to thrive.

Abu_Zubaydah

 

Kiriakou was a Boyscout, and he finds it unthinkable that US leaders would harm Americans, but offing a million Iraqis would be no problem for them.

The entire 10 part series is on RealNews.

 

Paul Jay dropped the ball and didn’t grill Kiriakou about Zubaydah’s information linking Al Qaeda directly to Saudi Royals. He had their phone numbers. That is the most plausible reason yet for CIA to snatch him away and begin torturing him (into silence).

CIA ignored rise of ISIS since 2013, Syrian rebel ‘spy chief’ says

 

“From the moment Daesh (an Arabic pejorative acronym for IS) had 20 members to when it had 20,000, we have shown everything to the Americans. When we asked them what they did with this information, they always gave evasive answers, saying it was in the hands of decision-makers.”
