War propaganda continues apace: rebels claim Gaddafi ordered soldiers to attack Misrata until “blue sea turned red” with blood; media parrots claims unchallenged

Rebels claim to possess documents proving Gaddafi ordered forces to starve Misrata and attack until “blue sea turned red” with the blood of its inhabitants; media outlets parrot the claims unquestioned
By the Editor.
The ‘rebels said’ approach to journalism continues to spread with UK news outlets now picking up the next episode in the desperate attempt to bolster NATO’s illegitimate war. As is customary, zero evidence is provided and instead claims from spokespeople and members of the rebel movement are simply parroted unchallenged.
The UK Guardian tells of how the rebels …

UN attempts to whitewash US-NATO civilian killings in Afghanistan

May 2011 found to be deadliest month for Afghan civilians since 2007; UN attempts to cover up NATO role
Article traduit en Francais par Irradiee.
By the Editor.
A 11 June press statement from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan slates May 2011 as the deadliest month for Afghan civilians since at least 2007. However this big-hearted announcement conceals a grossly pernicious attempt to cover up US-NATO killings of civilians in occupied Afghanistan.
In its report, UNAMA documents 368 conflict-related civilian deaths and 593 civilian injuries in May 2011. Georgette Gagnon, …

Alexander Cockburn: Where’s the evidence of Gaddafi’s war crimes in Libya?

By Alexander Cockburn, June 9, 2011.
It’s pitiful, but scarcely surprising. After all the endless disclosures of Nato’s lies concerning its onslaughts on the former Yugoslavia in the late 1990s, and the hundreds of postmortems and official inquiries into the propaganda blitz before the attack on Iraq in 2003, the Western press is more gullible regarding Libya, less inclined to question official claims than in those earlier failures.
The bar was already low, but now that those supposed lessons have been acknowledged and ignored, it has been lowered even further.
Who …

Viagra-induced rape: ICC ups the ante on propaganda as desperate NATO struggles to crush Libyan resistance

By the Editor.
Several news outlets including the BBC, right wing Israeli paper Ynet News, and Yahoo News, are running the latest instalment in the desperate propaganda effort to bolster NATO’s flagging war on Libya.
The chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno Ocampo, has said at a news conference today that his office is investigating the possibility that Gaddafi ordered rape to be used as a weapon to ‘control’ the population. Without providing a single shred of evidence Ocampo expounds what is basically a litany of baseless hearsay …

Humanitarian Neo-colonialism: Framing Libya and Reframing War

The world community is being subtly brainwashed to accept the radical neo-colonial policy of ‘humanitarian’ military intervention
Creative Destruction Part III
By F. William Engdahl. Global Research, May 4, 2011.
The most remarkable facet of NATO’s war against Libya is the fact that “world opinion,” that ever so nebulous thing, has accepted an act of overt military aggression against a sovereign country guilty of no violation of the UN Charter in an act of de facto neo-colonialism, a ‘humanitarian’ war in violation of basic precepts of the laws of nations. The …

Welcome to the violent world of Mr. Hopey Changey

By John Pilger, 26 May 2011.
When Britain lost control of Egypt in 1956, Prime Minister Anthony Eden said he wanted the nationalist president Gamal Abdel Nasser “destroyed… murdered… I don’t give a damn if there’s anarchy and chaos in Egypt”. Those insolent Arabs, Winston Churchill had urged in 1951, should be driven “into the gutter from which they should never have emerged”.
The language of colonialism may have been modified; the spirit and the hypocrisy are unchanged. A new imperial phase is unfolding in direct response to the Arab uprising …

Al Jazeera continues to flog mythical Libya narrative

By the Editor.
It’s astonishing that Al-Jazeera can still refer to the NATO-backed, CIA-led, al-Qaeda linked ‘rebels’ as the ‘Libyan people’.  They continue to plug the tired old lie that the Libyan insurrection is a popular uprising, rather than a violent, foreign-linked and backed attempt at regime change.  This isn’t astonishing at all however, knowing what Al-Jazeera has been like from the start on this.
Over 700 civilian deaths as a result of NATO bombing in Libya is conspicuously absent from this poor excuse for journalism.
To see more of Al-Jazeera’s shameful warmongering, …

Anatomy of a Murder: How NATO Killed Qaddafi Family Members

By Cynthia McKinney, May 29, 2011.
How many times must a parent bury a child?
Well, in the case of Muammar Qaddafi it’s not only twice: once for his daughter, murdered by the United States bombing on his home in 1986, and again on 30 April 2011 when his youngest son, Saif al Arab, but yet again for three young children, grandbabies of Muammar Qaddafi killed along with Saif at the family home.
Now, I watched Cindy Sheehan as she bared her soul before us in her grief; I cried when Cindy cried. …

False Flag Terror & State Secrecy: A Suppressed History

Daniel Ellsberg: “Secrets … Can Be Kept Reliably … For Decades … Even Though They Are Known to THOUSANDS of Insiders”
Washington’s Blog, Wednesday May 25, 2011.
Judges, prosecutors and journalists all know that collusion happens every day. As I noted last year:
Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme was a conspiracy. The heads of Enron were found guilty of conspiracy, as was the head of Adelphia. Numerous lower-level government officials have been found guilty of conspiracy. See this, this, this, this and this.
Time Magazine’s financial columnist Justin Fox writes:
Some financial market conspiracies are real …

The Last Word on Osama Bin Laden

By James Corbett, 24 May, 2011.

This is James Corbett of corbettreport.com with the last word on Osama Bin Laden.
Osama Bin Laden was one of the 54 children of Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a construction magnate who made his fortune by cozying up to the royal family of Saudi Arabia. The bin Laden family has had an intimate relationship with the upper reaches of global power politics for the past half a century.
In 1976 Salem bin Laden, Osama’s half-brother, co-founded Arbusto Energy with George W. Bush.
