In her message, Clinton appeared to outline an eight-point action plan, saying:
“…we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.
–>”our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure” MEANS COVER-UP, KEEP IT QUIET, AND DO NOTHING.
Where are the sanctions?
The threats of retaliation for support to ISIS/ISIL?
Aren’t we pretending to be “at war” with those groups?
Where are the prosecutions, the accusatIons of “war crimes” as were just levelled at Russia?
This is kabuki theater.
The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder.
America needs to stop financing Israel’s Crimes Against Humanity.

If you were living in a truly democratic country with a truly professional news media, you would think that this evolution of the United States into a rogue superpower violating pretty much every international law and treaty of the post-World War II era would be a regular topic of debate and criticism.
“Nobody believes in it. You’re like, ‘Fuck this,’” a former Green Beret says of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian militias. “Everyone on the ground knows they are jihadis. No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort, and they know they are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘Fuck it, who cares?’”

Bradley Manning was imprisoned for exposing US military WAR CRIMES in Iraq:
