Interpol issues red notice for Iraqi Vice-President, wanted for terrorism against his own people

Interpol has called for help in arresting fugitive Iraqi vice-president Tareq al-Hashemi on suspicion of planning and funding attacks in Iraq.

Hashemi, a leading Sunni Muslim politician, fled Baghdad in December when the Shia-led government accused him of running death squads.

The vice-president, who is thought to be in Istanbul, has denied the charges, saying they are politically motivated. He has refused to stand trial in Baghdad.

Interpol, which is based in France, said on Tuesday it had issued the "red notice" arrest alert at the request of Iraqi authorities.

The notice did not amount to an international arrest warrant, it added, but was a call on forces in its 190 member countries to help locate Hashemi and bring him to justice.

Comment: That governments terrorise their own people then accuse 'terrorists out there' of committing the horrific deeds is not so crazy an idea after all, is it?

Pedophilia in the Justice System

U.S. Family Courts Sacrificing Mothers & Children - Family Courts Behind an Epidemic of Pedophilia & Judicial Abuse

( * The article's original title Screw The Bitch - based on a book designed to destroy protective mothers - was unacceptably offensive to the author.)

A five month investigation reveals an epidemic of violence and corruption facilitated by Family Courts in the United States. Children all over the United States are being taken from their protective mothers and delivered to abusers. Behind this epidemic of judicial abuse are organized networks involved in racketeering and corruption, channeling and disappearing billions of dollars of U.S. taxpayers money every year. Insurance companies are being defrauded by medical and mental health professionals rewarded handsomely for producing quack studies that criminalize loving mothers and protect abusive fathers. With clear evidence of racketeering and corruption, high court judges and insider lawyers use and abuse the Family Courts system to destroy protective mothers and deliver life sentences of suffering to innocent children. Rich, poor, middle-class... No child in America is safe.

Little did they know, the worst was yet to come. Sunny Kelley and Lori Handrahan are just two mothers in two states in the country whose cases provide irrefutable evidence of judicial abuse and pedophile trafficking through Family Courts. Their court cases went straight from horrible to hell.

Despite solid documentation of judicial corruption, cronyism, state social service agency abuse, misconduct or dismissal by police, and massive profiteering by officials who are preying on families and children, even the Federal Bureau of Investigation is mute.

Just when Sunny and Lori thought it couldn't get worse, it did.

Al-Jazeera English shuts China bureau after reporter expelled

Al-Jazeera said Tuesday it has shut its English-language bureau in China after its correspondent became the first foreign journalist to be expelled from the country since 1998.

Beijing's refusal to renew the visa of US citizen Melissa Chan sparked anger among press groups, which linked the decision to a documentary by the international news channel on forced prison labour in China.

The Foreign Correspondents' Club of China (FCCC) said it was "appalled" and called the move a "grave threat to foreign reporters' ability to work in China".

"This is the most extreme example of a recent pattern of using journalist visas in an attempt to censor and intimidate foreign correspondents in China," said a statement from the FCCC, considered an illegal organisation in China.

The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Hong Kong also condemned Chan's expulsion.

Comment: It's important to keep in mind here that ever since Al Jazeera 'went over to the dark side', its activities have gone beyond 'just reporting the facts' to providing propaganda services to the Powers That Be.

Father of Soldier Murdered by Unknown Gunman Files Complaint Against Sarkozy and French Intelligence for Complicity in Toulouse Shootings

© AFP/Pascal PavaniA fellow paratrooper holds up a picture of Abel Chennouf, one of three soldiers shot in cold blood by an unknown assassin in Southwestern France in March.
Albert Chennouf, the father of a soldier killed in March by Mohamed Merah, filed a complaint against the incumbent president, Nicolas Sarkozy, and against the head of the intelligence services, accusing them of failing to prevent the death of his son.

Albert Chennouf filed "a statement to the police" for failure to assist a person in danger, officials said to the prosecution of Nîmes, in the South-Eastern France. The file should be forwarded to Paris. "I want to file a complaint against Nicolas Sarkozy and Bernard Squarcini for failure to assist a person in danger. I hold them responsible for the death of my son," said Mr. Chennouf on the website of the weekly Le Nouvel Observateur. Bernard Squarcini is responsible for the Central Directorate of Internal Intelligence (DCRI).

"Inevitably, we ask ourselves questions," added Chennouf. "I think that when you go to Pakistan by making a detour to Israel, it can only be with the blessing of the French secret services. The hypothesis that Merah was eliminated so that he wouldn't talk seems more and more plausible to me (...). Politicians wanted him to die."

Counsel for Mr. Chennouf, Gilbert Collard, confirmed that his client had filed a complaint. "He's in great despair, he pays the price for the drama lived," he said.

Corporal Abel Chennouf, 25, was killed the 15th of March in Montauban by Jihadist Mohamed Merah, who, in less than ten days, coldly killed
one man and three Jewish children, and three young soldiers. Mohamed Merah, who claimed to belong to Al-Qaeda, was killed the 22nd of March when police intervened in his apartment in Toulouse after a thirty-two hour siege.

Comment: Albert Chennouf knows something is wrong with the official story.

As Joe Quinn wrote shortly after the farcical "siege":
Toulouse Attacks: The Official Story of the Death of Mohamed Merah is a Lie

Clearly Merah was never meant to come out of that apartment alive. Why? Because he would have been able to tell the truth - that he did not shoot those three soldiers or the teacher and children at the Jewish school. Alive, he may have told a story of being contacted by French intelligence while he was in jail and offered a 'deal', whereby, as a Muslim, he would go to Afghanistan 'undercover' and report back to French intelligence on the activities of certain groups. This would have been the process of 'sheep dipping' him, creating a history that could later be used against him. He could have told how a trip to Israel was arranged for him and that he made contact with Israeli intelligence.

The Crackdown on Occupy: Nasty as They Want to Be

b&w police brutality graphic

Disturbing news from Occupy circles about NYPD practices these days - I mean, in addition to all those other NYPD practices we were already disturbed about.

David Graeber, a prominent anarchist involved with Occupy since its beginning, recounts seeing a woman friend in New York a few weeks ago, her hand in a cast. A cop had grabbed her breast, she said.

When she raised a fuss and screamed about the groping, the cops dragged her out of sight and started working her over. "Stop resisting!" they continued to shout, as they repeatedly slammed her body into the concrete. At some point she told them she was reaching over to get her glasses, which had come off in the scuffle. In the reptilian police mind, this justified pinning her hands behind her back and bending one wrist until it snapped.

Those familiar with police riots versus anti-globalization demonstrations and the more recent Occupy demonstrations, or who follows Radley Balko and CopBlock, is aware that sexual assault's the only thing unusual about this case. As Graeber says, "arbitrary violence is nothing new. The apparently systematic use of sexual assault against women protestors is new."

Of course sexual assault itself is hardly new as a weapon of social control, in historical terms. It appears in the arsenals of most authoritarian regimes - large-scale, premeditated use of rape for ethnic cleansing by Serbian forces in Bosnia, Egyptian troops using "virginity inspections" to humiliate female demonstrators taken into custody, and so on.


Ron Paul Could Still Win Enough Delegates To Deny Romney Republican Nomination

Despite what you may have heard from the mainstream media, Mitt Romney does not have the Republican nomination locked up. In fact, he is rapidly losing delegates that almost everyone assumed that he already had in the bag. To understand why this is happening, you have to understand the delegate selection process. Each state has different rules for selecting delegates to the Republican national convention, and in many states the "voting" done by the public does not determine the allocation of delegates to particular candidates at all. And the truth is that delegates are the only thing that really matters in this race. In state after state, the Ron Paul campaign is focusing on the delegate selection process with laser-like precision, and it is paying off big time. At this point, there is still a legitimate chance that Ron Paul will be able to win enough delegates to deny Mitt Romney the nomination on the first ballot at the Republican national convention in Tampa. If Romney does not have the 1,144 delegates that he needs on the first ballot, then it becomes a brokered convention and anything becomes possible at that point.

Sadly, most Americans have no idea how this process really works.

Yemen Authorities deny having any information to support US 'underwear bomber' claims

Senior officials in Yemen's Interior Ministry, Defense Ministry, Presidential office, and Prime Ministerial office deny having any information on a suspected underwear suicide bomber that was bound to the United States from Yemen.

The officials did not completely deny the American authorities claims but said that they are not aware on any such information.

Presidential Aide: No evidence proving US claims of a Yemeni behind 'underwear bombing' plot

A senior presidential aide told Yemen Post that the United States has yet to handover any evidence proving that a Yemeni national was planned to be involved in the bombing of a US airliner using an underwear bomb.

The official said that the Yemeni government expected AQAP to attempt an attack but on a different scale and with their full knowledge in cooperation with Washington.

The official said that the Yemeni government will ask Washington to handover the evidence to ensure a full investigation take place.

Comment: What are they going to do, hand over the underwear?

No evidence has yet been 'handed over' because there is no evidence to hand over.

France Chooses a New "President"; Will the EU Commission Let Him Do Anything?

© Reuters
The choice of François Hollande over Nicolas Sarkozy was an extreme case of the lesser of two evils. Seldom has a winning candidate inspired so little enthusiasm. Considering how unpopular Sarkozy was, according to polls, the final vote of 51.6% for Hollande to 48.4% for Sarkozy was surprisingly close. Voting for the bland and inoffensive Hollande was finally the only way to get rid of the agitated Sarkozy, aggressively pretending to be President of France.

There is no more real President of France. The leader who is elected to occupy the Elysée Palace no longer lays down the policy direction to be taken by the nation. That role has been largely taken over by the European Union Commission in Brussels.

With his modest manner, François Hollande is more suitable to be non-President of France. Not that it promises to be an easy job. The financial powers that run the world are pushing him to break the news to the French that they can no longer have the policies they want, but only the policies dictated by "the markets".


Best of the Web: FBI Informer Entraps Occupy Protestors Into US Government Plot to Blow Up Cleveland Bridge

The latest plot involves five subjects allegedly planning to bomb a Cleveland area bridge. More on it below.

Entrapment occurs when law enforcement officials or agents induce, influence, or provoke crimes that otherwise wouldn't be committed.

It doesn't apply if subjects willingly act lawlessly. Government aiding, abetting, or facilitating them is considered lawful.

Entrapment involves government operatives initiating the idea. If individuals go along under pressure despite no intent or desire to do so, they committed no crime. To convict, prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that subjects weren't entrapped. Otherwise, judicial fairness requires exoneration.

That's not how things turn out today. Innocence or guilt doesn't matter. Once charged, prosecutorial misconduct and right-wing courts convict. Juries are pressured and intimidated to go along even in cases with no plot, no crime, or intent to commit one.

Attorney Eric Holder defends the practice. He calls stings a vital tool. He stops short of admitting entrapment. He must because it's illegal. It's nonetheless repeatedly used to convict innocent people. As a result, hundreds rot unjustly in America's gulag.

Gerald Celente calls cops enforcers for crime bosses. So are FBI agents. They serve wealth and power. Corporate crooks are rewarded. Ordinary people are targeted. Familiar story lines repeat. They sound more like film plots than real ones.

Comment: So the FBI is at it again. This time trolling the OWS movement for the most gullible people to set up as patsies to keep the bogus 'terror threat' alive, and even expand it to 'homegrown terrorism' and anyone "angry at corporate America".

For a history of the many similar cases of the FBI entrapping intellectually challenged Americans to frame as 'terrorist' patsies, check out the following Sott Report.
