Secrets Politics and Torture

* Nowhere in the so-called respectable mainstream journalism is it shown that CIA tortured people to cover up the 9/11 attacks, specifically the links to Saudi royals and Pakistani generals. The “failed” policies and mistakes-were-made meme permeates all imperial whitewashes, such as this one. More later…

Chris Kyle built his reputation as a sniper during one of the most criminal operations of the entire occupation of Iraq, the 2nd siege of Fallujah.

This process, known as “moral disengagement”, is extremely common in militaristic societies. But what is fascinating about American Sniper is how these omissions survive in the face of overwhelming evidence of the crimes that Chris Kyle participated in. The fact that a man who participated in the 2nd siege of Fallujah — an operation that killed between 4,000 to 6,000 civiliansdisplaced 200,000, and may have created an epidemic of birth defects and cancers — can come home, be embraced as a hero, be celebrated for the number of people he has killed, write a bestselling book based on that experience, and have it made into a Hollywood film is something that we need to reflect on as a society.

More on the atrocities in Fallujah.

All hail the glorious mass murderers.

British medical journal The Lancet is under attack for daring to speak out on the massacre of over 1,800 Palestinians last year and the related health crises in Gaza.

Lancet medical journal accused of ‘hate speech’ on Israeli aggression in Gaza

Specifically referencing Israel’s military assault on Gaza last summer, the letter insisted “the massacre in Gaza spares no one.” Its victims include “the disabled and sick in hospitals, children playing on the beach or on the roof top, with a large majority of non-combatants,” the letter said.

CNN:

The Palestinian death toll in Gaza stands at more than 1,800, with nearly 10,000 wounded, Gaza’s Health Ministry said Sunday. More than 300 children have died, the ministry has reported, as the United Nations repeatedly raises concerns about the high number of deaths in Gaza.

Terrorism.

In Europe.

To do Washington “a favor.”

Korwin-Mikke, 72, a European lawmaker and leader of Poland’s conservative KORWiN party, claimed this was a CIA operation. This came as a “Yes” reply to the question whether he believed the CIA was involved.

“Yes – but it was also our operation. The snipers were trained in Poland,” Korwin-Mikke said adding this was done “to provoke riots.”

This is also a “False Flag” attack and a criminal conspiracy.
