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.

Only fifteen years after the Patriot Act, the Associated Press finally had a wake-up call because FBI impersonated THEM!!!

AP: DOJ inspector general report ‘raises serious constitutional concerns’

I guess if FBI agents impersonated Reuters staff they wouldn’t have minded so much. But now this cuts into public trust of AP itself, and so they had to say something.

The treason of 9/11 and the fabricated “war on terror” have come full circle. The fascists are winning, clearly, getting away with mass murder in nation after nation, supporting the terrorists they claim to fight, and destroying the civilization that took centuries of struggle to enact. While the Bill of Rights is burned, and the totalitarian Big Brother state activated, the final restraints are being excised, while Americans are too fat, stupid, and lazy to even keep track of this direct assault…
