The insurgencies in El Salvador and Guatemala were crushed through the slaughter of tens of thousands of civilians. In Guatemala, about 200,000 people perished, including what a truth commission later termed a genocide against Mayan Indians in the Guatemalan highlands. In El Salvador, about 70,000 died including massacres of whole villages

The Obama regime is attempting to spin US support to death squads and dictators as pressing for them to protect human rights!  While Kissinger and the CIA were the ones coordinating the death squad approach to human rights in South and Central America…

“In particular, they provide insights into the Carter administration’s efforts to urge the Argentine dictatorship to abide by the rule of law, release individuals illegally detained, and account for those who had disappeared while in the custody of the state.”

My problem with Hedges concerns his cowardice over the September 11th Treason:

 

Message to Hedges:

Hedges has been a coward over the 9/11 Treason. This betrayal discredits him and others like Noam Chomsky, who also sold lies, the most dangerous lies, by letting them get away with it.

There is no way to stop the gains of the empire if you let them get away with massive attacks on the “homeland.” The ignorance Hedges displays is staggering. You ceded the entire debate to them on 9/12/01 and made yourself irrelevant. We had a chance to stop them. They allowed terror attacks on NYC and the Pentagon, and perhaps aided and abetted. They committed high Treason to cover it up and protect the Saudi sponsors. The CIA hid the hijackers from exposure for 16-18 months — ADMITTED TO SINCE 2005!

These facts render your efforts moot, Mr.Hedges. You will get exactly nowhere by allowing massive false flag terror attacks to occur without opposition. Your efforts are little more than the chatter of the Internet. Interesting entertainment. Nothing more.

James Steele: America’s mystery man in Iraq – video

 

A 15-month investigation by the Guardian and BBC Arabic reveals how retired US colonel James Steele, a veteran of American proxy wars in El Salvador and Nicaragua, played a key role in training and overseeing US-funded special police commandos who ran a network of torture centres in Iraq. Another special forces veteran, Colonel James Coffman, worked with Steele and reported directly to General David Petraeus, who had been sent into Iraq to organise the Iraqi security services

US-NATO Sponsored Death Squads Integrate “Opposition Forces”

Modeled on US covert ops in Central America, the Pentagon’s “Salvador Option for Iraq” initiated in 2004 was carried out under the helm of the US Ambassador to Iraq John Negroponte (2004-2005) together with Robert Stephen Ford, who was appointed US Ambassador to Syria in January 2011, less than two months before the beginning of the armed insurgency directed against the government of Bashar Al Assad.

America’s bloody paws are all over this abomination in Syria, and have been since the beginning.  Unfortunately Americans can’t remember anything past the last Tweet and bimbo who twerked on their TVs.

Materials Implicating Syrian Government in Chemical Attack Prepared Before Incident – Russia

Moscow continues to monitor closely the event surrounding the“alleged” chemical attack near Damascus, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Aleksandr Lukashevich, said in a statement.

“We’re getting more new evidence that this criminal act was of a provocative nature,” he stressed. “In particular, there are reports circulating on the Internet, in particular that the materials of the incident and accusations against government troops had been posted for several hours before the so-called attack. Thus, it was a pre-planned action.”

The Damascus chemical attack accusations indicate the launch of “another anti-Syrian propaganda wave” and, in this context, the calls on the UN Security Council to immediately use force in Syria “heard from some EU capitals” are “unacceptable”, Lukashevich said.

Washington’s favorite terrorists are likely behind this latest massacre, again.   Previously the UN found that “opposition” insurgents had used gas in Syria, and other members of the Syrian “opposition” were arrested in Turkey in possession of Sarin nerve gas.  This transparent false flag provocation has failed repeatedly, and yet civilians keep dying by the hundreds in this foreign-sponsored pet project of Washington, London, Paris, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, et al.

Hey, if you ever wonder why “they,” as in most of the rest of the world “hates us,” well here ya go.  Scahill’s Dirty Wars is getting press.

Business Insider:

“Rumsfeld worked to make sure that the unit was “unrestrained and unaccountable to anyone except him, Cheney, and the president” while Cheney began going to JSOC headquarters at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to give direct action orders.”

UPDATE

Douglas Valentine pointed out problems with Scahill, his foundation funded backers and the info he doesn’t release (concerning CIA).

Then something trutly absurd happened, straight from Scahill’s own Twitter:

Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With Aid From C.I.A.

US Doubles Aid To Syrian Rebels, Who Want More

“Instead, the Obama administration’s pledged to provide an additional $123 million in aid, which may include for the first time armored vehicles, body armor, night vision goggles and other defensive military supplies.”

Another $123M tax money, while schools fold.  Seniors are being denied food and medicine.  Obama is the representative of the Military-Industrial-Crony-Capital-Corporate sector.  He does not give a damn about Americans, nor Syrians.

Syria’s so-called “rebels” are majority Al-Qaeda connected “Al Nusra Brigade.”  Their atrocities have killed tens of thousands of civilians.  We are living Orwell’s worst nightmare.  Don’t beleve me?  How about a Catholic Church official from Syria?

“It’s not a question of promoting democracy or pluralism as the West wants us to understand of its policies. This is a lie, this is hypocrisy,Syriac Patriarch Ignatius Joseph III Younan told Catholic News Service.

Western nations did not heed warnings and so “bear responsibility for what is happening in Syria.”

“We were warning all those involved, the countries in the region and in the West — that means the United States and some of the European Union countries, like the United Kingdom and France — that this kind of violence would lead to chaos and the chaos to a civil war,” Patriarch Younan said. “And at that time, two years ago, they chose not to believe that.”

Yes America.  Your willful, criminal ignorance kills thousands around the world.  You’re supposed to keep checks on your government.  That’s called “democracy.”

The Guardian today posted an investigation and a documentary film on the architects of the “Salvador Option” and the death squads of Iraq. Col. James Steele and Gen. David Petraus, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Chency, the names are expected but for Steele. The documentary highlights Steele’s atrocities from Vietnam through Central America on his way to Baghdad.

From El Salvador to Iraq: Washington’s man behind brutal police squads


Numerous witnesses are on the record. I have one complaint, however, and that is a bogus civilian casualty count mentioned near the beginning of the film. A total of 130,000 Iraqis is stated as some kind of fact with no discussion or examination. This is likely the US military’s own body count; ironically from an invading force that bragged “we don’t do body counts” (Gen. Tommy Franks).

Today’s history lesson.

What I’ve Learned About US Foreign Policy(Film Website)

Professor Michel Chossudovsky has a new article entitled, Death Squads in Iraq and Syria. The Historical Roots of US-NATO’s Covert War on Syria.  Some of these previous “death squads” can be seen in the above documentary.  This is essential modern history that every American should already know like the back of his/her hand, and yet is nowhere to be found in US high school history classes.  …And that, my friends, is exactly what’s wrong with America.
