The 71%

According to a recent FPI poll, 60% of Americans want go to war with Iran to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons.

This in spite of the fact that the US intelligence community is fairy unanimous that Iran is not even currently pursuing nuclear weapons. According to Micah Zenko:
First, as Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has repeatedly reaffirmed since late January, "we don't believe they've actually made the decision to go ahead with a nuclear weapon." Just yesterday, James Risen reported in the New York Times that the IC continues to believe (based on an assessment first made in November 2007) that Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei halted his country's nuclear weapons activities in 2003.

This might be hard for many to grasp, since polling has found the American people disagree with the collective judgment of the 210,000 civilian and military employees and 30,000 private contractors comprising the IC. A recent poll found that 84 percent of Americans think Iran is developing nuclear weapons, while another from February 2010 concluded that 71 percent of Americans believe that Iran currently has nuclear weapons.
So 60% of Americans believe Iran should be attacked to prevent nuclear proliferation. Simultaneously 71% of Americans - in total contradiction to the evidence recognised by both the CIA and Mossad that Iran is not currently even developing a nuclear weapon - believe that Iran currently has nuclear weapons. There is almost certainly a high degree of overlap - and that's some severe cognitive dissonance. Where are such ideas coming from?

There are some voices in the wilderness that are expressing the view that Iran already has a nuclear weapon to anyone who will listen.


TSA "all-stop" drill caught on video at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport

A traveler at Sky Harbor has uploaded a video of TSA employees performing an "all-stop drill." Passengers had already passed the security checkpoint when agents told them to stop moving. The video uploader, who captured the final 24 seconds of the drill, posted in comments it was unclear what was happening, writing:
"I suddenly found myself in a bunch of travelers who were being sharply told to 'Stay right where you are! Don't move!'

"A TSA employee was pointing his blue-gloved hand at anyone who moved a muscle (including airport workers) and barking these orders. Beyond him were two other agents doing the same thing to everyone in a 90-degree radius. The tension was rather palpable, as you might imagine. No explanation was given, no other words were spoken.

"No one moved a muscle. Parents grabbed their children. Anyone who fidgeted or made a step forward got yelled at."

Kissinger, US intelligence community endorse "World Without Israel"

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been vilified in the Western media for daring to imagine "a world without Israel."

But according to news reports, Henry Kissinger and sixteen American intelligence agencies agree that in the near future, Israel will no longer exist.

The New York Post quotes Kissinger "word for word": In 10 years, there will be no more Israel.

Kissinger's statement is flat and unqualified. He is not saying that Israel is in danger, but could be saved if we just gave it additional trillions of dollars and smashed enough of its enemies with our military. He is not saying that if we elect Netanyahu's old friend Mitt Romney, Israel could somehow be salvaged. He is not saying that if we bomb Iran, Israel might survive. He is not offering a way out. He is simply stating a fact: In 2022, Israel will no longer exist.

The US Intelligence Community agrees, though perhaps not on the precise 2022 expiration date. Sixteen US intelligence agencies with a combined budget over USD70 billion have issued an 82-page analysis titled "Preparing for a Post-Israel Middle East."

Director of one of the branches of the Doha Bank disclosed financial documents substantiating the Qatari government's support for terrorist and rebel groups in Syria.

Lebanese Addiyar daily reported on Monday that it had received an e-mail from the Director of one of the Doha Bank branches owned by one of the royal family members, which unveiled the details of how Qatar financed terrorists in Syria.

According to the e-mail, the director suspected the transactions of the two Syrian bank customers Moataz al-Khayyat and Mohammed Moataz al-Khayyat.

The two men owned a small contracting company in Doha, named UCC.

"After they had usual small accounts of deposit, transactions, remittances, and credits, they recently started bringing a large amount of weekly money remittances from various sources," the director informed the Lebanese daily.

Police are monitoring key activists online: Activists warned to watch what they say as social media monitoring becomes 'next big thing in law enforcement'

Political activists must watch what they say on the likes of Facebook and Twitter, sites which will become the "next big thing in law enforcement", a leading human rights lawyer has warned.

John Cooper QC said that police are monitoring key activists online and that officers and the courts are becoming increasingly savvy when it comes to social media. But, speaking to The Independent, he added that he also expected that to drive an increase in the number of criminals being brought to justice in the coming months.

"People involved in public protest should use social media to their strengths, like getting their message across. But they should not use them for things like discussing tactics. They might as well be having a tactical meeting with their opponents sitting in and listening.

"For example, if antifascist organisers were discussing their plans on social media, they can assume that a fascist organisation will be watching. Social media sites are the last place you want to post something like that," he said.

Mr Cooper QC's warning comes after a New York court ordered Twitter to hand over messages posted on the site by a demonstrator belonging to the Occupy Wall Street movement in America. Malcolm Harris, 23, is accused of disorderly conduct after he was arrested on Brooklyn Bridge during a protest last October.

Int'l norms violated by US delisting of MKO

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said the United States violated the international norms by removing the name of the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, NCR and PMOI) from the list of terrorist groups.

"The United States suddenly prepares a ground to strike the Monafeqin (Hypocrites, as they are called in Iran) grouplet from their terror list, and they, in fact, disrespected international norms and human criteria by such actions," Larijani told FNA on Sunday.

He said Washington's claims about war on terrorism as well as promotion of democracy and human rights are no more than empty words which meet no action. "As a matter of fact, they (Americans) are looking for servants to obey their orders and if then their actions fall in the domain of terrorism, they won't care."

"Americans took similar measures in Afghanistan and they continue doing so now," Larijani went on saying.

He said the US delisting of the MKO revealed once again to the Iranian nation that "Americans are an accomplice of those who assassinated Iran's leaders and our scholars".

Contradictions and Hypocrisy: Professor Obama lectures the Muslim world

On Sept. 25, Professor-turned President Barack Obama lectured the Muslim World and world leaders during his annual address before the United Nations.

The beautifully crafted speech of the Nobel peace laureate would have been believed - and better received - had it simply been genuine. The president's appeal for rejecting violence, spreading peace among nations, while emphasizing the vital use of diplomacy in international relations, as well as his call for respecting the rule of law, due process, and cultural understanding were remarkable. But unfortunately, they were simply not credible.

In his speech, the president admonished the Muslim World by underscoring the important belief that people must "resolve their differences peacefully" and that "diplomacy" should take "the place of war." Laudable words, but only if America practiced what it preaches.

In his seminal work A Century of U.S. Interventions, based on the Congressional Records and the Library of Congress' Congressional Research Services, Zoltan Grossman chronicled 133 U.S. military interventions by the most active military in the history of the world, between 1890 and 2001. Similarly, William Blum's study A Guide to the World's Only Superpower, covered 67 interventions between 1945 and 2000 that, according to him, resulted in the deaths of 13-17 million people. In his book The Fall of the U.S. Empire - And Then What?, European intellectual Johan Galtung listed 161 incidents of American overt political violence between 1945 and 2001, including 67 military interventions, 25 bombings, 35 political assassinations (or attempted ones), 11 foreign countries that were assisted with torture, and 23 interferences with elections or the political process abroad. And all that was before the 9/11 attacks.

Revealed: Army scientists secretly sprayed St Louis with 'radioactive' particles for YEARS to test chemical warfare technology

The United States Military conducted top secret experiments on the citizens of St. Louis, Missouri, for years, exposing them to radioactive compounds, a researcher has claimed.

While it was known that the government sprayed 'harmless' zinc cadmium silfide particles over the general population in St Louis, Professor Lisa Martino-Taylor, a sociologist at St. Louis Community College, claims that a radioactive additive was also mixed with the compound.

She has accrued detailed descriptions as well as photographs of the spraying which exposed the unwitting public, predominantly in low-income and minority communities, to radioactive particles.


David Hicks forced to take high drug doses in Guantanamo

Guantanamo Bay detainees, including David Hicks, were forced to take high dosages of anti-malaria drug mefloquine despite showing no signs of the disease, a practice likened to ''pharmacological waterboarding'' by a US military doctor.

Questions have been raised about whether the mass administration of the drug to detainees was a secret, illegal experiment after a medical journal article last month by an army doctor, Major Remington Nevin, highlighted the ''inappropriate use'' of the drug and asked if its use had been motivated by the drug's psychotic side effects.

The US Centres for Disease Control issued a warning against the use of mefloquine on anyone suffering psychiatric disturbances or having a previous history of depression. Dr Nevin also warned high doses of the drug could cause brain injuries.

Mr Hicks has long claimed he was drugged against his will. Evidence including previously secret reports and witnesses including a Guantanamo guard and New York lawyer Josh Dratel support Mr Hicks' claims.


U.S. forcibly drugged all Guantanamo prisoners with scopolamine

New evidence has emerged that all Guantanamo Bay detainees, including David Hicks, were drugged involuntarily with a substance that has a long history as a truth serum.

Recently declassified US documents revealing medical procedures have shown that scopolamine was administered to all detainees taken to the Cuban detention centre.

The documents, which were standard operating procedures for nursing staff, were obtained by the independent US news outlet Truthout, and reveal that the rationale for the drug's use on all detainees was to prevent motion sickness.

However, US military experts have said that scopolamine is not recommended for motion sickness because of its severe side effects.
