Exclusive: Air Force Whistleblowers Risk Prosecution to Warn Drone War Kills Civilians, Fuels Terror
New documentary exposes war crimes and provocations to fuel terrorism:
They’re “heroes” right, Kathryn Bigelow?
Now government documents leaked to the Intercept show conclusively that the US drone program kills thousands of innocents on bad intelligence and careless targeting while being falsely portrayed as a program of impeccable planning and precision execution. The recently leaked “Drone Papers” reveal the extent of willful ineptitude in US drone operations in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, which rely on systematically faulty intelligence and astonishing inaccuracies in identifying targets.
Should I feel insulted? They neglected to hound me as well. I guess I’m not reaching enough of an audience. Damn.
First name on their smear list is Dr. Francis Boyle, the human rights lawyer who has pushed for International Law to be upheld his entire career. I actually created a website for him back around the start fo the Iraq War (Crime). I have also opposed the genocidal ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israeli aggression. I post on it regularly. It is disgusting.
A new website is publicizing the identities of pro-Palestinian student activists to prevent them from getting jobs after they graduate from college. But the website is keeping its own backers’ identity a secret.
“It is your duty to ensure that today’s radicals are not tomorrow’s employees,” a female narrator intones in a slick video posted to the website’s YouTube account.
Called Canary Mission…
A foreign power is waging economic war on targeted US students, right here in America.
Fuck “Canary Mission.”
Meet your “moderate” freedom fighters…
[Anonymous Saudi Official] said those groups being supplied did not include either Islamic State (IS) or al-Nusra Front, both of which are proscribed terrorist organizations. Instead, he said the weapons would go to three rebel alliances — Jaish al-Fatah (Army of Conquest), the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Southern Front.
Who are its members?
The alliance consists of a number of mostly Islamist factions, including the Nusra Front, al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate; Ahrar al-Sham, another large group; and more moderate rebel factions that have received covert arms support from the intelligence services of the United States and its allies.
Rethugs aren’t interested in what the CIA was actually doing there, and they do not challenge the CIA on anything.
As for the well-equipped paramilitary operatives at the CIA station, according to their own statements, they were initially held back by the CIA station chief — as they had been in other incidents. And the station chief was, in turn, acting under his directive to let local militia groups respond. That practice was intended to maintain the station’s covert profile. Unfortunately, it was not consistent with providing any real time defense for the State Department compound.
We’ve pretty much known this for years. Why is nothing ever done about it?
