New BARRY SEAL movie telling a highly edited version of history.

CHOMSKY-1_web.jpg

A reporter asked Noam Chomsky about Vice President Joe Biden’s comments calling out US allies for aiding ISIS:

“Joe Biden… he accused the allies of conniving or helping ISIS; then he apologized.”

24:50

Chomsky immediately, like an obfuscation machine, takes the word “allied” and contorts the question to change the meaning:

Chomsky:

“He didn’t actually say they were allied with ISIS.”

What does this answer mean exactly? Do we need a team of lawyers to parse what the definition of “allied” is?

The question was US allies “conniving or helping ISIS,” which of courrse is what Biden said. Giving them massive amounts of lethal weapons–what Biden actually said:

“The Turks were great friends, and I’ve a great relationship with [Turkish President Recep Tayyip] Erdogan, … the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down [Syrian President Bashar al-]Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war. What did they do?” Biden asked, according to a recording of the speech posted on the White House’s website. They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad, except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra, and al Qaeda, and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.

Chomsky says next:

“What he said was accurate. They leave the border open. They leave the opportunity for ISIS to strengthen itself.”

How does Noam Chomsky erase tens of thousands of tons of weapons” from reality with a few well-placed turns of phrase?

It’s not just Biden accusing the US allies of supporting ISIS, of course. Chomsky surely knows about other parties, such as the Defense Intelligence Agency and generals like Martin Dempsey.

Noam Chomsky is helping sell a fraud. You don’t gloss over tens of thousands of tons of weapons. He’s not senile. He doesn’t have Alzheimers. He has an agenda.

Why ISIS Exists: The Double Game

Syrian-boy-rescue

I’ve been detailing numerous frauds, many of them with war propaganda value. These are used to demonize people half a world away. Today we have another unlikely fake, and exposed by the Daily Mirror no less, a tabloid rag upstaging the Telegraph, Fox and Daily Mail!

Footage of Syrian ‘hero boy’ dodging sniper’s bullets to save girl revealed as FAKE

How many of you passed this on as real? I was tempted to here.

I want you to read an article from 1999 in the Washington Post, to finish up this thread on fakery and propaganda:

When Seeing and Hearing Isn’t Believing

By William M. Arkin
Special to washingtonpost.com
Monday, Feb. 1, 1999

“Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government.” So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command.

At least the voice sounds amazingly like him.

But it is not Steiner. It is the result of voice “morphing” technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.

By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner’s voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile…

P.S.

Fake youtube hero video was noticed by Tony Cartalucci; his article.

“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”

–Adolf Hitler

The propaganda nation has ascended, and Americans remain profoundly ignorant of what it is their empire does around the world.  They largely believe what they are told by authority figures, even if what they are told makes no logical sense.  Even if what they are told contradicts the evidence in front of their faces.  Even if the liars have clear motives for lying to them.  Even if similar situations floated right past the liars in the past without comment, clear hypocrisy.

I have called such pathetic ignorance criminal, naming a new category of misdemeanor, criminal ignorance.  In a democracy the citizens are responsible for informing themselves about critically-important situations, and not relying on one side’s baseless claims.  Sitting back and being told what to think by the government or by the profit-driven media is not informing one’s self.  The responsibility of citizens, in a democratic republic, is to sort the liars from the truth tellers.  When citizens shirk this responsibility they are derelict in their civic duties, as they cannot make sound, rational decisions.  Thus the decisions they do make: giving support, voting, influencing others, are negligent, reckless, unsound and should be called out.  That is criminal ignorance.

In America far too much of the public is criminally ignorant about most important issues, including war and peace.  So they are ripe for the Big Lie, the technique of Hitler, which is now routinely executed by US politicians.

2013_0906_kerry_syriaUS Propaganda Minister John F. Kerry

One such Big Lie is the Obama Jihad against Bashar al Assad, claiming that Assad used chemical weapons on August 21 and a whole lot of other times previously.  No evidence has ever come out to connect the Syrian military to any gas attack, and yet every single instance is blamed on Assad by the propaganda wing of the insurgents, and then these accusations are dutifully repeated by Western media and Western government officials.

What evidence has emerged is that the Al Nusra terrorist groups in Syria have used Sarin gas, repeatedly.  Quite a different narrative.

The Big Lie depends also on censoring out the other side.  So when UN Investigator Carla del Ponte tells the world that it was the opposition rebels and not the Syrian government this cannot be mentioned by the Big Liars.  This evidence is not permitted to be relayed to the masses.  This crucial evidence – if one is actually concerned about civilian deaths – passes by as if it never happened.  The Big Liars are exposed by what they will not say, as well as what they do say.

“…[T]hus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.  It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X

An immoral foreign policy depends upon deception.  Citizens cannot know that they are responsible for atrocities half a world away, or else they might act on this knowledge.  As the masses are so willingly ignorant, this is not difficult to achieve as long as the press agrees to limit its sources and revelations.

This is academic.  It is a fait accompli, and has been the status quo for the entire modern age.  See Manufacturing Consent if you’re unfamiliar with the way corporate media churns out one-sided foreign policy “news.”

HuffPo 809

The game is set.  Only the players and the skirmishes change.  The goal of empire is to expand empire and to take more profit from outside, thus enabling it to maintain its position of global domination and to reward those who are favorable to its agenda.  It is a self-perpetuating juggernaut that grows out of control and eventually destroys itself by overreaching.  That’s how history has shown the evolution to be.  Destruction can be slow or rapid.  In the nuclear age, it can come in minutes.  It’s a high-stakes game this war and peace.  Those who see themselves as invincible will overreach faster and in more spectacular fashion.  While Hitler lied himself into a massive empire and built a military never before witnessed on earth, even his five-year plans were cut short.

la-et-katheryn-bigelow-speaks-out-pictures

The queen speaks (in the LA Times), still ignoring the charges by the Senate that she fabricated a false presentation of torture RESULTS.  Still attempting to hide behind “free speech” and laughably labeling herself a “pacifist.”   This label is contradicted by her repeated actions.  She, more than anyone, should know that actions speak louder than words.

It isn’t that you depict torture on screen, Kathryn dear, it’s that your results of said torture are a lie, spoon-fed to you by CIA torturers, these “experts” who “disagree.”

BIGELOW: “On a practical and political level, it does seem illogical to me to make a case against torture by ignoring or denying the role it played in U.S. counter-terrorism policy and practices.”

That’s exactly what the Senate Intelligence Committee has done, Kathryn, denied your tortures’ alleged “role” in extracting useful information about Osama bin Laden.  The information came from other sources, completely unrelated to the torture that your film claims was key.

BIGELOW: “Experts disagree sharply on the facts and particulars of the intelligence hunt, and doubtlessly that debate will continue.”

She refuses to acknowledge that the Senate’s year long investigation determined that the courier’s identity came from sources not related to the torture program.

To her it’s a matter of “debate” and has no importance beyond academic tit and tat.  The fact that her Big Lie of a film tells audiences that torture works and helped locate Osama bin Laden is irrelevant to her.

Ugly American, as ugly as they come.  Pretty face, but a hideous soul.

PS

Dark Lord Cheney’s daughter tweeted:

“Just saw Zero Dark Thirty. Excellent film about years of heroism, including in the enhanced interrogation program, that led to bin Laden.”

Leni Riefenstahl ain’t got nuthin’ on you, Bigelow.
