Doug Valentine was very critical of Scahill. Scahill is a darling of the foundation-funded faux left. The film concerns the covert war in YEMEN for years before our democracy-loving allies, the Saudis, invaded and destroyed the country.
Scahill was called a conspiracy theorist for his reports, straight from the White House’s spokesgoon. Obama is shown on record demanding a Yemeni reporter be falsely imprisoned for reporting US atrocities. The military empire is out of control and even threatening Scahill with covert surveillance and threats not to publish.
Whatever you think of Scahill, he has unearthed some important information.

1 Hour PBS/Frontline documentary*:
* 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…

Fuck the Israelis.

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 civilians, displaced 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.
All hail the glorious mass murderers.
