US gov narrative blaming Iran for oil tanker attacks falls apart in hours

The Trump administration’s claims Iran attacked oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman were quickly debunked, with the ship’s crew saying it “was hit by a flying object.” But the US disrupted important Iranian diplomatic efforts at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization

It looks like the US is peddling a video of alleged mines being removed by alleged Iranians on a ship they claim is the one that was attacked. Three areas to investigate. Also–the video shows men REMOVING objects, not placing them in the first place. That’s four issues to investigate.

In Montreux, on the eastern shore of Lake Geneva, political and business leaders from Western nations are gathering for the 67th Bilderberg Meeting, an annual forum in which participants agree not to reveal exactly what was said or who said it. It is a shadow version of Davos, the elite annual winter conference in the Swiss Alps that President Trump has attended once but has also criticized.

The State Department has not even put the Bilderberg Meeting on Mr. Pompeo’s public schedule, though a senior official confirmed he was attending Saturday.

US officials are attempting to hide their participation in secret foreign meetings, but–guess what–if you find that problematic, the Times has more to say. Guess who returns from the great beyond? Of course: Alex Jones. Those who think secret foreign meetings to conduct the nation’s business are potentially illegal get branded as Jones-style “conspiracy theorists.”

There is a federal statute about “open meetings,” you know, democracy and shit. But the NY Times never bothers to inform anyone about it:

“Except as provided in subsection (c), every portion of every meeting of an agency shall be open to public observation.”

Of course, section C allows for loopholes you could fly jetliners through. Trump would have to issue an Executive Order, a formality. Did he? Did anyone follow up on the legality of this secret foreign meeting while they were masturbating over Alex Jones’ “occultism” shit, something they did manage to research for some inexplicable reason.

NYT’s Exposé on the Lies About Burning Aid Trucks in Venezuela Shows How U.S. Government and Media Spread Pro-War Propaganda

 

As it always does – as it always has done from its inception when Wolf Blitzer embedded with U.S. troops – CNN led the way in not just spreading these government lies but independently purporting to vouch for their truth. On February 24, CNN told the world what we all now know is an absolute lie:  that “a CNN team saw incendiary devices from police on the Venezuelan side of the border ignite the trucks,” though it generously added that “the network’s journalists are unsure if the trucks were burned on purpose.”

CIA Director Pompeo Admits Convincing Trump Over Disproven Chem Weapons Attack In Syria

“I got a call from the President one afternoon back in April. He wanted to talk about some disturbing images that were coming in from Syria. I’m sure you saw many of them yourselves—scenes of innocent civilians writhing in agony, the apparent victims of a chemical weapons attack.

The President had a very direct message for me: Find out what happened. So we immediately assembled a crack team of Agency experts. They began piecing together the evidence, working closely with some outstanding partners from across the Intelligence Community.

The next day the President called his cabinet together. As we sat down, he turned to me and asked what we had learned. I told him that the IC had concluded that a chemical weapon had indeed been used in the attack, and that it had been launched by the Syrian regime.

The President paused a moment and said: Pompeo, are you sure? I’ll admit that the question took my breath away. But I knew how solid the evidence was, and I was able to look him in the eye and say, Mr. President, we have high confidence in our assessment.

The President never looked back. Based on the Intelligence Community’s judgment, he made one of the most consequential decisions of his young administration, launching a strike against the very airfield where the attack originated.

So I can assure you that when it comes to having the confidence of the Commander in Chief, CIA and the Intelligence Community are in great shape.”
