In a war, it appears that it’s easy to become just as bad as the monsters that you are fighting.
Just ask the survivors of a killing spree in Afghanistan last March, when US soldiers went on a rampage, killing 17 civilians, 9 of them children. Only one soldier, Army Staff Sgt Robert Bales, was charged but the witnesses have a different story:
One mother-of-six, whose husband was killed during the incident, believes there were as many as 20 people involved.
She told SBS Dateline journalist Yalda Hakim: ‘When they shot dead my husband, I tried to drag him into the house, they’d shot him in the head so his brain was all over my hands. I had to use a bowl for his blood.
‘I saw more than 20 people when I looked out the house. The Americans pointed their guns at me and threatened me, telling me not to leave the house or they’d kill me.’
Another witness, an eight-year-old girl called Noorbinak, said a gunman shot her family’s dog before shooting her father in the foot and dragging her mother by the hair. When her father screamed, he was shot dead, before the gunman shot Noorbinak in the leg.
She said: ‘One man entered the room and the others were standing in the yard, holding lights.’
The brother of another victim claimed that his nephews and nieces saw numerous soldiers involved in the assault, all wearing headlamps and with lights strapped to the ends of their guns.

There’s no way an irate parent goes around shooting children, whatever cockamamie story line they come up with. I don’t care what they say. Something’s amiss and it’s almost always mind control that’s involved. Legislation and/or executive orders banning guns are just waiting to be signed, so just watch the furor over this horrific school shooting in Connecticut get whipped into a frenzy and unilateral call for gun control.
They’ve been building their case for this a long time, and clearly stepped it up with these staged shootings over recent months.
Notice how they always pull stuff around Christmas every year for maximum emotional effect. There will be more, you can be sure. Usually a false flag phony terror plot “discovered” by the FBI. But this year they may just let one fly. Who knows.
Connecticut Elementary School Shooting: 27 People Dead Including 18 Children
At least 26 people are dead – including 18 children – after a gunman who is believed to be a student’s father opened fire today at an elementary school in Connecticut.
Police were dispatched to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after they received reports of shots being fired by a gunman in the main office of the school at 9.41am.
There are preliminary reports a student’s father, who is believed to be 20-years-old and from New Jersey, was the shooter. He was killed at the scene though it is unclear if he shot himself or was brought down by an officer. (more) Continue Reading
Many documents produced by the U.S. government are confidential and not released to the public for legitimate reasons of national security. Others, however, are kept secret for more questionable reasons. The fact that presidents and other government officials have the power to deem materials classified provides them with an opportunity to use national security as an excuse to suppress documents and reports that would reveal embarrassing or illegal activities.
I’ve been collecting the stories of unreleased documents for several years. Now I have chosen 11 examples that were created—and buried—by both Democratic and Republican administrations and which cover assassinations, spying, torture, 50-year-old historical events, presidential directives with classified titles and…trade negotiations.

When retired four-star general and former CIA Director David Petraeus resigned from his post this month after admitting to an extramarital affair, one of the more startling revelations was that the dalliance was discovered when the FBI sifted through his private Gmail account.
The spy chief had been out-spied.
More alarming is that the average American could easily be subjected to the same snooping that Petraeus endured. According to current law, police can access email through a provider, like Yahoo or Gmail, without a warrant if the message is more than 180 days old.
The rule is a relic of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, written before legislators could dream of the explosion of technology and ubiquity of email, text messaging, online chatting and other communications that leave behind an electronic trail.
The Senate Judiciary Committee met on Nov. 29 to consider an update to the Act which would require police to get a warrant to read email or other electronic communiques.
The proposed change comes as technological advances continue to give law enforcement more efficient and invasive ways to track people, while privacy laws struggle to keep up. Citizens might be surprised to learn that their email accounts, their phones and even their houses are subject to warrant-free electronic surveillance. Continue Reading
Former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst William Binney said in a Tuesday interview with RT that the American domestic law enforcement and intelligence agency, the FBI, has massive access to such data due to a powerful device called Naris, Russia Today reported.
According to the report, Binney was “one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in NSA history” that resigned in 2001 “because he no longer wanted to be associated with alleged violations of the [US] constitution.”
The former NSA officer says the FBI has access to “basically the emails of virtually everybody in the country,” including all members of the US Congress. “No one is excluded,” he insists.
“So, yes, this can happen to anyone. If they become a target for whatever reason… the government can go in, or the FBI, or other agencies of the government, they can go into their database, pull all that data collected on them over the years, and we analyze it all. So, we have to actively analyze everything they’ve done for the last 10 years at least.” Continue Reading
Last Wednesday, a 21-year-old Bangladeshi national, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, was arrested and accused of traveling to the U.S. to establish an al Qaeda cell and bomb the Federal Reserve Bank in Lower Manhattan.
Buried beneath the headlines and opening paragraphs of the major news outlet reports, however, is the fact that Nafis would have been unable to execute his plot without substantial assistance from the F.B.I.. Authorities assured several news agencies that “the public was never in danger.”
This case is yet another instance, among hundreds, of federal agencies creating terrorist plots so they can take credit for stopping them, instill fear in Americans and justify the billions of taxpayer dollars spent on wars and “homeland security.” This practice earned the number four rank on the list of the 2012 Project Censored most underreported stories in the U.S. media.
Last year, Trevor Aronson, with the aid of the Investigative Reporting Program at University of California-Berkley, completed a yearlong investigation of every case of terrorism that the Department of Justice (D.O.J.) prosecuted since 9/11 that was published in Mother Jones monthly. Out of 508 defendants at the time, 248 were targeted via an informant, 158 were nabbed via a sting operation, and 49 were lured via an informant who led the plot. Only three cases did not involve an informant and/or a F.B.I. sting operation. In 53 percent of the cases, the charges the defendants were convicted of did not involve terrorism. Continue Reading

(NaturalNews) There is a saying throughout the military that goes something like this: “We’re here to defend democracy, not practice it.” It’s sort of a tongue-in-cheek statement about the discipline and chain of command structure associated with military life, but in reality, the provisions of the U.S. Constitution do still apply to soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. And that isespecially true once men and women put away their uniforms and return to civilian life.
But that’s not the case for veteran and former Marine Brandon Raub, 26, who has been “arrested, detained indefinitely in a psych ward and forced to undergo psychological evaluations based solely on the controversial nature of lines from song lyrics, political messages and virtual card games which he posted to his private Facebook page,” according to the Rutheford Institute, a non-profit, legal organization that has come to Raub’s defense.
According to the institute, authorities with the Chesterfield County, Va., police nor the FBI have charged Raub with a crime after initially arresting him Aug. 16 and transporting him directly to John Randolph Medical Center, a behavioral health facility located in Hopewell, Va., just south of Richmond. There, the institute says, Raub is being “held against his will” over concerns that his “Facebook posts were controversial and ‘terrorist in nature.’”
In a hearing at the hospital (they couldn’t even transport Raub to a courthouse, apparently), authorities rejected out of hand Raub’s explanations that his posts were merely taken out of context, and sentenced him to 30 more days’ of confinement in a Veterans Administration psychiatric ward. Attorneys from the institute are “challenging Raub’s arrest and forcible detention, as well as the government’s overt Facebook surveillance and violation of Raub’s First Amendment rights,” said a statement.

FEDERAL WAY, Wash. — A Federal Way man has been arrested for allegedly making threats against President Obama, federal officials said Tuesday.
The man, 31-year-old Anton Caluori, sent a threatening email to a general FBI mailbox, said Emily Langlie with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Secret Service agents immediately went to Caluori’s apartment at the Panther Ridge Apartments Complex, found he was armed and took him into custody, Langlie said.
“When they opened the door he was armed. And then they obviously got him into custody and arrested him,” said Tanya Waller, who witnessed the arrest.
Federal agents said they found suspicious items in the Caluori’s unit and out of an abundance of caution, called in a bomb unit to sweep for any possible explosive devices. Two weapons were also confiscated, Federal Way police said.
Lee Hauser, who also lives in the complex in the 100 block of S. 334th Street, says the entire complex was evacuated. He added he could see police cars, a black sedan and a bomb disposal unit at the scene.
Cathy Schrock of the Federal Way Police Department said the evacuation was necessary to ensure the safety of all individuals in the area.
“We know folks want to reenter, but we must ensure it is safe for citizens and follow up investigators,” Schrock said.
Caluori’s mother, Renee, said her son made a mistake. Continue Reading
The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have issued a bulletin to law enforcement warning that “anarchist extremists” may use IEDs, or Improvised Explosive Devices, at the Republican and Democrat national conventions.
“Many sociologists and mental health professionals say that those who believe the official version without any questioning are the ones suffering from psychological defense mechanisms.” – Washington’s Blog, “Former Marine Indefinitely Detained In Psychiatric Ward Over 9/11 Facebook Posts.”
“They call me mad, while they are all mad themselves.” – Plautus.
“Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage.” – Ray Bradbury.
When did telling the truth become a sign of madness in America? Was it on September 12, 2001? How about November 23, 1963?
Who can remember now? It seems like forever ago.
The ghost of legendary American poet and heroic patriot Ezra Pound would argue it happened before the 1950s.
Pound was mislabeled “insane” for his political speech by the fascist U.S. government after the conclusion of WWII and subsequently thrown in the mental prison called, “St. Elizabeths Hospital.” Ironically, this same insane asylum now houses the Department of Homeland Security.
Pound was called crazy because he made unpopular statements about the U.S. government and its drive to war. A few generations later, the U.S. government is still using the same totalitarian tactic to silence dissent. It is a convenient way to bypass the law. As this articlefrom 1997 about the legal and political use of mental health hospitals states, “Most importantly, the “mentally abnormal” person is denied due process of law.” Continue Reading

Michael Chertoff, former director of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has brought the influence of the Israel Defense Forces to local police departments across America. By using Zionist training, local police are being mentally and physically shifted from being protectors of American law to purveyors of Zionist control-schemes.
While the suppressive, over-reaching Obama administration, under control of the global Elite, turns our Constitutional Republic in a Fascist Dictatorship, the police forces have been a clear reflection. Suddenly the use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, assault weapons, and illegal surveillance is evidence of a Nazi-style computer systems, evidencing a dramatic shift in American societal structure.
The Marine Corps have created a law-enforcement battalion (ELB) consisting of specialized military police officers (SMP) that will be deployed to assist in investigating crimes dealing with drug trafficking, train security and terrorism.
The ELBs contain an estimated 500 SMPs and trained dogs. While capitalizing on their investigative and police training, they will take the role of current street cops while still remaining part of the Marine Corps.
SMPs would be deployed to assist in any event of civil disturbance, handling of detainees, and the use of biometrics to identify suspects and conduct forensic work. Their assistance is not limited to conducting DUIs and writing speeding tickets in an effort to re-brand the Marine Corps as being more involved with average work now allocated to local law enforcement.
Police departments nationwide are engaging in re-directive training for civil war, domestic insurrection, and cooperative efforts with military forces in accord with covert policies.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and DHS, “extremist domestic organizations is just as dangerous as terrorism from foreign organizations” and law enforcement must be enabled to pre-emptively stop these homegrown terrorists without the hindrances of Constitutional rights like the 1st Amendment.
By demonizing US veterans and alleged members of white supremacist groups, as in the case of the staged psy-op Sikh shooting in Wisconsin, the DHS hopes to use the pre-crime technologies at their disposal in conjunction with local police to infiltrate and stop domestic extremism.
Wade Michael Page, the alleged shooter in the Sikh murders, has been called a white supremacist by two suspect organizations. First is the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which is known to have ties to the FBI after having been infiltrated by federal agents.
In the first public accounting of its kind, cellphone carriers reported that they responded to a startling 1.3 million demands for subscriber information last year from law enforcement agencies seeking text messages, caller locations and other information in the course of investigations.
The cellphone carriers’ reports, which come in response to a Congressional inquiry, document an explosion in cellphone surveillance in the last five years, with the companies turning over records thousands of times a day in response to police emergencies, court orders, law enforcement subpoenas and other requests.
The reports also reveal a sometimes uneasy partnership with law enforcement agencies, with the carriers frequently rejecting demands that they considered legally questionable or unjustified. At least one carrier even referred some inappropriate requests to the F.B.I.
The information represents the first time data have been collected nationally on the frequency of cell surveillance by law enforcement. The volume of the requests reported by the carriers — which most likely involve several million subscribers — surprised even some officials who have closely followed the growth of cell surveillance.
“I never expected it to be this massive,” said Representative Edward J. Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat who requested the reports from nine carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, in response to an article in April in The New York Times on law enforcement’s expanded use of cell tracking.
