The "Bin Laden Option" and the Missing Minot Nuke

Right before September 11, 2001, the alarm bells were ringing across trading floors about some unusual trading in the US stock options market. An extraordinary number of trades were bet that American Airlines stock prices would fall.

The trades are called "PUTS" and at least 450,000 shares of American Airlines stock were involved. What raised the alarms was that more than 80 percent of the orders were "puts" and they far outnumbered "call" options (those betting the stock would rise). Usually, the numbers are fairly balanced on these kinds of trades so this imbalance caught traders' attention.

The next day, four American passenger jets were hijacked in a terrorist attack on American soil. Three of these jets belonged to American Airlines. Two allegedly crashed into the World Trade Center and one allegedly crashed into the Pentagon. The fourth aircraft was a United Airlines passenger jet that allegedly crashed into a field near the town of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Double-crossing in Kurdistan

The George W Bush administration would not flinch to betray its allies in Iraqi Kurdistan if that entailed a US "win" in the Iraq quagmire. And it would not flinch to leave its Turkish North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies in the wilderness as well - if that entailed further destabilization of Iran. Way beyond the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) vs Turkey skirmish, one of these two double-crossing scenarios will inevitably take place. Washington simply cannot have its kebab and eat it too.

Propaganda Alert! Saad Hariri claims Syrian plot to kill Lebanon PM

Lebanese parliamentary majority leader Saad Hariri said on Tuesday that he had evidence of Syrian assassination plots against himself and Prime Minister Fuad Siniora.

Hariri made the claim in response to a question about alleged assassination plots against the leaders by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's brother-in-law and head of intelligence Assef Shawqat.

"We have intelligence about this and we are following it up," he told reporters.


Comment: As always ask: who benefits? And you will have a better picture at who is doing what. In this case, Syria has nothing to gain, as it is already in the cross-hairs of the US and Israel. Killing Lebanese leaders would only make sure that the US and Israel get international support for invading and bombing Syria.

Fascism is HERE! NOW! Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007



Stop the Pathocrats from signing away our rights and our lives!

On a recent trip abroad a friend was talking to a street vendor. "Where are you from?", asked the vendor. "America", our friend replied. The vendor grimaced in a way that suggested at once pity and distaste. "I'm not responsible for Bush!" our friend protested. The vendor summed up his feelings in one word, "Fascists". Our friend could hardly disagree, "Fascist pigs!" he exclaimed.

While many foreigners can see the current unmasking of an overtly fascist form of government in the USA, too many home-grown Americans cannot. Over six years of incessant "terror threat" propagandizing from the US government and the mainstream media has hystericized the American mind to the point that the ordinary citizen is no longer able to think clearly and differentiate lies from truth and fascism from democracy.

Attack Iran and you attack Russia

The barely reported highlight of Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Tehran for the Caspian Sea summit last week was a key face-to-face meeting with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

A high-level diplomatic source in Tehran tells Asia Times Online that essentially Putin and the Supreme Leader have agreed on a plan to nullify the George W Bush administration's relentless drive towards launching a preemptive attack, perhaps a tactical nuclear strike, against Iran. An American attack on Iran will be viewed by Moscow as an attack on Russia.

Family Of Lebanese Politician Sues Mossad For Assassination

The family of slain former Lebanese Communist Party leader Georges Hawi announced on Wednesday that it had filed a lawsuit against Israel's Mossad intelligence agency accusing it of plotting his assassination on June 21, 2005. Speaking during a news conference at the Bristol Hotel, Hawi's step-son, Raffy Madayan, lashed out at the Lebanese authorities for "overlooking the issue of political assassinations and focusing on the murder of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri solely." Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, in his latest speech, accused Israel of plotting the string of political assassinations which took place over the past few years; the March 14 Forces, meanwhile, holds Syria responsible.

Comment: Mossad murdered Hariri and several other Lebanese politicians over the past few years. See this sott editorial for more.

Propaganda: Did "Iraqi Dissidents" snatch weapons inspector David Kelly?

Weapons inspector David Kelly was the decent man apparently hounded to suicide after exposing Tony Blair's lies on Iraq.

But the crusading MP Norman Baker felt sure there was something more to his death - and gave up his front-bench role to investigate the case.

In the Mail he revealed extraordinary evidence that he believes proves Kelly did not take his own life and was instead murdered by Iraqi dissidents. Here, he reveals how the murder may have been carried out . . .

Comment: This is an obvious propaganda piece. Everything that Norman Baker says points to either CIA or MOSSAD false flag Ops, not "Iraqi Dissidents"! His comparison of "Iraqi Dissidents" to the murderers of Danny Casolaro is ludicrous, to put it mildly.
