As soon as the 9/11 attacks occurred, the Bush administration's eyes were on Iraq, and the intelligence agencies were ordered to get the proof. Detainees were even tortured to force them implicate Saddam Hussein, and false stories about contract between al-Qaeda and Saddam's regime were floated.
Can we make any sense of this fixation on Iraq? I think we can.
My father Irwin A. Schiff was born Feb. 23rd 1928, the 8th child and only son of Jewish immigrants, who had crossed the Atlantic twenty years earlier in search of freedom. As a result of their hope and courage my father was fortunate to have been born into the freest nation in the history of the world. But when he passed away on Oct. 16th, 2015 at the age of 87, a political prisoner of that same nation, legally blind and shackled to a hospital bed in a guarded room in intensive care, the free nation he was born into had itself died years earlier.
In an illuminating article by Eric Margolis, formerly of the CIA, he points out an interesting fact. Margolis believe US special operations are directly working on the ground with 'moderate' terrorists in Syria (an oxymoron if ever there was one) to defeat the Asad regime. No wonder we don't want the Russians bombing our al-Qaida allies (you remember them, they are the scum that killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11).
The irony is that a former KGB operative, Vladamir Putin, is working in the US interests more than the current group of Obummer operatives. And before you go blaming Barry for the current disfunctional foreign policy, remember that most of this foreign policy is run by State Department Bush hold overs. And most of you voted for Bush - the second time around... shame on you.
I've finally figured out how the media are like my cat. The media do things that seem absolutely stupid but when you examine what they “report” the proof of their evil and perfidy is evident to see. Well my cat isn't evil but her often stupid and rigid behavior has a clear agenda to it: to manipulate me into getting what she wants!
Last Sunday CBS gave us another example of the Drive By Media's manipulative, propaganda driven agenda by fronting their ever uninformed”reporter” Charlie Rose to interview Vladamir Putin. If you recall in this space I pointed out how Mr. Rose had no idea about some important aspects of Middle East ideologies when he interviewed Bashir al-Assad. Now keep in mind that these reporters don't composed most of their questions and have very little to do with the final edit. That would be the producers job, someone we in the public rarely see. In this case for CBS that would be Andy Court, the man behind the curtain as it were. Reporters are largely pretty faces or pleasant voices with very little knowledge of what is going on in a world they are reporting on but producers are the ones pulling their strings. Then the reporter attempts to pull yours.
In his second policy position paper, presidential candidate Donald Trump called for an expansion of gun rights in America.
In the document published on his campaign website, Trump stated: “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.”
