#FreeMarziehHashemi

 

The FBI abduction of Marzieh Hashemi is another milestone in the US turn to fascism. Marzieh Hashemi is a well-recognized and highly respected journalist and TV anchorwoman for Press TV, which is affiliated with the Islamic Republic of Iran. She was abducted on January 15th as she was boarding a flight to Denver from St. Louis.

Marzieh was whisked to an unknown location in the vicinity of Washington, DC. The Washington DC area was probably chosen, as Northern Virginia is the site of what is referred to as the “CIA court”, in which so-called national security cases are heard, because the government can be assured of government-friendly juries. In such cases, juries side with the government 99.9% of the time.

Marzieh is being held incommunicado, as this is being written, and she has not been heard from publicly. Nor does her family and friends know her exact location of imprisonment. It took nearly a week before the US government even acknowledged Marzieh’s arrest.

All the US government finally said was that Marzieh is being held as a “material witness” to an unspecified crime. Though not charged with any crime, Marzieh is being treated worse than a criminal. Her human, civil and religious rights have been violated. Reportedly all she has been able to eat is crackers, because the government is not respecting her religious dietary requirements.

Syrian Rebels Caught in ‘False-Flag’ Kidnapping

Short version: GPS probably saved that guy’s life. NBC knew it was the Free Syrian Army Sunni kidnapping gang from the start, but they went along with the propaganda ruse to blame the Assad government.

I wrote, almost three years ago, how Syrian rebels engaged in false flag attacks and fabricated propaganda.

Syria: The First Casualty…

The “Houla Massacre” was the first major false flag event to make news around the world, and was used as a pretext for western governments to kick out Syria’s ambassadors, in a staged farce.

“Essentially, a small hamlet in Syria was invaded by “up to 700” insurgent fighters. They attacked three government check posts in a lengthy battle, where the army returned artillery fire. A contingent of these terrorists then went house to house seeking out political opponents and massacred the entire families of those who were still loyal to the government or who had converted from Sunni to Shiite Islam.

“When the rebels seized the lower checkpoint in the center of town… they began to sweep all the families loyal to the authorities in neighboring houses, including the elderly, women and children. Several families of the Al-Sayed were killed, including 20 young children and the family of the Abdul Razak. Many of those killed were ‘guilty’ of the fact that they dared to change from Sunnis to Shiites.”

They collected bodies and claimed that the victims were killed by army shelling, which was obviously not consistent with forensic analysis, nor with reality.

The German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) confirmed this Russian account of the Houla atrocities on June 7th. The murdered families are named and described in more detail.

“Several dozen members of a family were slaughtered, which had converted from Sunni to Shia Islam. Members of the Shomaliya, an Alawi family, were also killed, as was the family of a Sunni member of the Syrian parliament who is regarded as a collaborator.” (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Abermals Massaker in Syrien, 6/7/2012; Translation)

Previously German newspaper Der Spiegel published an interview with the Syrian rebels’ executioner and his death squad named the “burial brigade.”

“According to Abu Rami, Hussein’s burial brigade has put between 200 and 250 traitors to death since the beginning of the uprising.” (Der Spiegel, An Executioner for Syria’s Rebels Tells His Story, 3/29/2012)”

John McCain meets with known kidnappers and sends them US arms and tax money in 2013.

Free Syrian Army Sold Kayla Mueller to ISIS

I have established the fact that Kayla was kidnapped by the FSA, and they had the sole opportunity to kidnap her. It is a fact that Syrian civilians never had access to weapons. The only people who had weapons prior to spring 2011 were the police, army and security forces. However, once the Syrian revolution began, the weapons came pouring in from Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The FSA had access to the best weapons, all supplied by the United States of America, their payroll checks coming to them from the King of Saudi Arabia.

However, as much money as you give the typical FSA fighter, he just wants more and more. This is why the FSA have repeatedly kidnapped wealthy people and demanded ransom for their release. This has become a well documented side income for FSA. It has been proven that the FSA sold other western kidnap victims to ISIS. The motivation of the FSA in selling Kayla Mueller to ISIS had nothing to do with Radical Islam, or their hatred of USA, even though USA is their sponsor in Syria, it only was about money. Money makes the world go around, and FSA greed is what killed Kayla Mueller, among others.

John McCain poses with known jihad kidnappers in Syria

 

On the trail of the CIA Officers who hid the San Diego Cell 9/11 hijackers from the FBI and from White House Counterterrorism Advisor Richard Clarke:

STATEMENT FROM SECRECY KILLS

The CIA is protecting two employees at the heart of the 9/11 intelligence failures, threatening journalists John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski – yours truly – with a possible unprecedented federal prosecution under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act. The incident concerning the two in the run up to the Sept 11th tragedy has become infamous.

“Its one of the most troubling aspects or our entire report, that particular thing,” explained 9/11 Commission chairman Thomas Kean. The Newsweek journalist who broke the story in 2002, Michael Isikoff, goes even further. “That was a pretty stunning intelligence lapse. Probably one of the biggest intelligence lapses of our time.”

The identities in question are those of a former staff operations officer at the CIA’s Al Qaeda unit in 2000, called Michael in the Commission Report, and her immediate supervisor at the time, referred to by her middle name, Frances, in an AP story about CIA accountability in February.

Likely candidates for their names were discovered through savvy internet research conducted based on minimal background details provided from various sources and previously published stories. When we were not corrected after using the names in conversations with people in a position to know, we had a sort of confirmation.

The real confirmation came on Thursday via CIA’s reaction to our email informing them that the names would be included in an investigative podcast to be released Sunday on iTunes, Who Is Rich Blee? “We strongly believe it is irresponsible and a potential violation of criminal law to print the names of two reported undercover CIA officers whom you claim have been involved in the hunt against al Qa’ida.”

The federal law in question was later stated: the Intelligence Identities Protection Act. The law has never before been applied to journalists who find information in open-source materials. This possible expansion of precedent fits an ongoing pattern of intimidation and redefining precedent regarding leaks and whistleblowers from the White House. The Obama administration has used the Espionage Act to prosecute more whistleblowers in one term than all previous Presidents combined, as the New York Times noted last month.

We are told that the two were analysts whose names were not classified at the time of 9/11. Following that tragedy, the Agency might have chosen to hold them accountable in some appropriate manner. Instead, they were placed into cover status where today they work, according to the Agency, as important players in the fight against Al Qaeda.

We have confirmed with The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer that “Frances” is the same red-haired CIA employee described in her best-selling book The Dark Side as having been reprimanded for making herself involved in the waterboarding of Khalid Shaikh Mohammad without being officially assigned to do. The CIA has told us this did not happen, though it was unclear if they meant the incident or the reprimanding. She was reportedly later informed by superiors, “Its not supposed to be entertainment.”

She is also “the analyst at the heart of the el-Masri mishap,” as reported by AP in February. El-Masri was an innocent German citizen who was kidnapped in December 2003 and interrogated for five months in a secret prison. A source in a position to know has further asserted that “Frances” was partially singled out for blame in an internal CIA review of the suicide bombing in Khost that killed seven officers. The Agency was widely criticized for failing to take basic safety steps before bringing the double-agent bomber into a CIA base.

This is one of the people the CIA says we would be irresponsible to reveal to the American public.

“Frances” may indeed be the heroine of Kathryn Bigelow’s ZERO DARK THIRTY, whose real name is Alfreda Frances Bikowsky.
