U.S. Perpetuates Mass Killings In Iraq

By Peter Phillips
July 18, 2008

The United States is directly responsible for over one million Iraqi deaths since the invasion five and half years ago. In a January 2008 report, a British polling group Opinion Research Business (ORB) reports that, “survey work confirms our earlier estimate that over 1,000,000 Iraqi citizens have died as a result of the conflict which started in 2003…. We now estimate that the death toll between March 2003 and August 2007 is likely to have been of the order of 1,033,000.…

Ray McGovern’s False Flag Warning

Israel Planning a September/October Surprise?

By Ray McGovern

International Clearing House — You say you expected more rhetoric than reality from Senators Obama and McCain yesterday in their speeches on Iraq and Afghanistan? Well, that’s certainly what you got.

What I find nonetheless amazing is how they, and the pundits, have taken such little notice of the dramatic change in the political landscape occasioned by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s bombshell on July 7 — his insistence on a “timetable” for withdrawal of US troops before any accord is reached on their staying past the turn of the year.…

Seven years on, no answer from White House on anthrax attacks

7/16/2008
by Eric Brewer
Rawstory.com

It’s been almost seven years since — in the weeks immediately following 9/11 — anthrax powder sent through the mail killed five people, threatened the lives of two Democratic senators, terrorized the entire nation, and helped prod a panicky Congress into passing the so-called Patriot Act.

In the intervening years, not only has the killer remained free, but missteps in the investigation have had major negative consequences. Just last month, in fact, the Department of Justice agreed to pay $4.6 million to former bioweapons expert Stephen Hatfill to settle a lawsuit Hatfill brought against the Justice Department, the FBI, and former Attorney General John Ashcroft for destroying his reputation and career by publicly implicating him in the case.…

Little War Criminals Get Punished, Big Ones Don’t

by Paul Craig Roberts

July 17, 2008

National Public Radio has been spending much news time on Darfur in Western Sudan where a great deal of human suffering and death are occurring. The military conflict has been brought on in part by climate change, according to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Drought is forcing nomads in search of water into areas occupied by other claimants. No doubt the conflict is tribal and racial as well. The entire catastrophe is overseen by a government with few resources other than bullets.…

The 9/11 truth movement is growing stronger in Belgium and Europe

BRUSSELS – JUNE 25TH, 2008 – For the first time in Europe
some Non-Governmental Organizations and officials are endorsing the United for
Truth platform and will support the second edition of this European peaceful
protest held on September 7th, 2008 at the Schuman Place in Brussels. The platform
is:

In solidarity with the American citizens, we demand an independent investigation
of the 9/11 attacks, which were the pretext for too many wars, lies, and a
serious decrease of (y)our civil rights (“anti-terrorist”-acts,
secret prisons, “Patriot act”, etc).

Is the Fourth Estate a Fifth Column?

Corporate media colludes with democracy’s demise
By Bill Moyers

Without a free and independent press, this 250-year-old experiment in self-government will not make it. As journalism goes, so goes democracy.

 

I heard this story a long time ago, growing up in Choctaw County in Oklahoma before my family moved to Texas. A tribal elder was telling his grandson about the battle the old man was waging within himself. He said, “It is between two wolves, my son.…

The Real-Life

Op-Ed Columnist
By FRANK RICH

We know what a criminal White House looks like from “The Final Days” Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s classic account of Richard Nixon’s unraveling. The cauldron of lies, paranoia and illegal surveillance boiled over, until it was finally every man for himself as desperate courtiers scrambled to save their reputations and, in a few patriotic instances, their country.

“The Final Days” was published in 1976, two years after Nixon abdicated in disgrace.…

More on Impeachment today…

Email from Rep. Robert Wexler, FL

Capitol Hill is buzzing today with major developments regarding our campaign for impeachment hearings for President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. Just today, in what could be described as a perfect impeachment storm:

• Karl Rove once again thumbed his nose at Congress and the American people by brazenly ignoring a lawful congressional subpoena to testify before the House of Representatives;

• Judiciary Chairman John Conyers indicated his willingness to use the power of inherent contempt against Rove if necessary;

• Rep.…

Who Planned the Anthrax Attacks?

Who Planned the Anthrax Attacks?
It’s the $5,800,000 question

You remember the anthrax
attacks
— or do you? It often seems, to me at least, that this important
catalyst for the invasion of Iraq and our supremely wrong-headed
post-9/11 foreign policy has been flushed down the collective memory hole. For
all the attention that’s been paid to that spooky chapter in the history of
the “war on terrorism” in the intervening years, it may as well have
never occurred.…

Happy Independence Day – Let’s put the Constitution back on the table!

freedom from fear and pledge that government ‘of the people’ will survive in
this land that we love.”

Some Democratic Leaders say Impeachment is off the table.

So, let’s set a new table for our nation, upon which we place the Constitution
and where we demand that all those who have taken an oath to defend it … keep
their promise and protect our nation from the threat within.…

The Bush Administration steps up its secret moves against Iran.
by Seymour M. Hersh
July 7, 2008

Late last year, Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran, according to current and former military, intelligence, and congressional sources. These operations, for which the President sought up to four hundred million dollars, were described in a Presidential Finding signed by Bush, and are designed to destabilize the country’s religious leadership.…

Valerie Plame

Former White House spokesman Scott McClellan is testifying to the House Judiciary Committee about his new revelations on the exposure of CIA agent Valerie Plame and the Bush administration’s “propaganda campaign” that led the country into war.

McClellan was invited to testify after publication of his tell all memoir, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception. Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers said the revelations McClellan wrote about “may or may not constitute an impeachable offense.”

The revelation of a pre-war propaganda campaign was “a confirmation that the White House played fast and loose with the truth in a time of war,” Conyers said to open the hearing.…

Bomb Iran? What’s to Stop Us?

By Ray McGovern
June 19, 2008

It’s crazy, but it’s coming soon — from the same folks who brought us Iraq.

Unlike the attack on Iraq five years ago, to deal with Iran there need be no massing of troops. And, with the propaganda buildup already well under way, there need be little, if any, forewarning before shock and awe and pox — in the form of air and missile attacks — begin.

This time it will be largely the Air Force’s show, punctuated by missile and air strikes by the Navy.…
