Secrets Politics and Torture

* Nowhere in the so-called respectable mainstream journalism is it shown that CIA tortured people to cover up the 9/11 attacks, specifically the links to Saudi royals and Pakistani generals. The “failed” policies and mistakes-were-made meme permeates all imperial whitewashes, such as this one. More later…

‘CIA killed prisoners, made it look like suicide’ – Guantanamo guard
Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh gestures during a panel discussion on "The Challenges of Reporting About Iraq" at the Associated Press Managing Editors annual conference in San Jose, Calif., Friday, Oct. 28, 2005. Deteriorating security in Iraq has made covering the war and reconstruction efforts exceedingly difficult, and this isn't helping efforts to give readers the coverage they need to understand what's really going on, a panel of journalists said Friday.

Amnesty International: Whitewashing Another Massacre

To determine the reasons behind Israeli actions, one only has to read what their Dr. Strangeloves say – it is no secret. The aim is to create miserable conditions to drive the Palestinians off their land, warehouse the population in an open air prison called Gaza, and to disproportionately repress any Palestinian resistance. Israelis have to “kill and kill and kill, all day”. Such pathological reasoning put Israeli actions into perspective; they are major crimes, possibly genocidal. Recognition of such crimes has some consequences.

“aggressive deception”

Timely reporting, 13 years late. Seems like they were hoping he would die before they’d have to confront the 9/11 cover-up.

In sworn statements in the two cases, Mr. Graham has said there was evidence of support from the Saudi government for the terrorists. He also says the F.B.I. withheld from his inquiry, as well as a subsequent one, the fact that the bureau had investigated a Saudi family in Sarasota, Fla., and had found multiple contacts between it and the hijackers training nearby until the family fled just before the attacks.

And, of course, protecting Saudis who sponsored the 9/11 hijackers is the definition of Treason (aid and comfort).

“One thing that irritates me is that the F.B.I. has gone beyond just covering up, trying to avoid disclosure, into what I call aggressive deception,”

Of course they repeatedly try to smear him. NY Times is a propaganda rag of the lowest order.

We Were Lied To About 9/11

The 9/11 debate continues with John Kiriakou (CIA whistleblower).

New evidence: Kiriakou and the CIA analysts were forcibly evacuated from CIA haedquarters upon learning of the 2nd WTC plane strike, on the orders of Cofer Black. Getting rid of witnesses?

“At one point our secret services simply detected direct contacts between militants from the North Caucasus and representatives of the United States secret services in Azerbaijan,” Putin said in the film, released by Rossiya 1 TV channel on Sunday.

“And when I spoke about that to the then president of the US, he said… sorry, I will speak plainly, he said, “I’ll kick their asses”, Putin recounts his conversation with George W. Bush on the issue. A few days later, he says, the heads of Russia’s FSB received a letter from their American counterparts, which said they had the right to support opposition forces in Russia.

“Someone over there, especially the West’s intelligence services, obviously thought that if they act to destabilize their main geopolitical rival, which, as we now understand, in their eyes has always been Russia, it would be good for them. It turned out, it wasn’t,” Putin muses, saying he had warned the West about the possible dangers of supporting terrorists.

Putin accuses US of backing North Caucasus militants

I brought up much background on the Chechen situation in my article on the Boston Bombing (must read):

Is This the Man Who “Radicalized” Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?

There is also a direct 9/11 tie in to the US support for Chechen terrorists connected to Osama bin Laden:

An FBI memo already established al Khattab as an Al Qaeda terrorist, but the investigation of Moussaoui’s laptop was denied to the FBI Minneapolis officers and to Coleen Rowley, the legal advisor there. “True, there was an FBI memo on the FBI director Louis Freeh’s desk explicitly warning that terrorists linked to Khattab and Bin Laden were planning a major attack, but the memo was dismissed, and the FBI man in Washington DC, who should have seen that memo but claims he didn’t, rebuffed Minneapolis and shut down their requests for a warrant to look in Moussaoui’s laptop.”
