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 …

It was May 12 1996 when I got the call. Kathy Kelly, a peace activist who constantly risked the wrath of the US government for her compassion, was phoning from Chicago, stunned.
Washington’s UN ambassador Madeleine Albright had just appeared on Sixty Minutes, Kelly told me.
Presenter Lesley Stahl had confronted her guest on the US-driven embargo on Iraq.
“We have heard that a half million children have died,” said Stahl. “I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is …

Israeli soldiers yesterday killed at least fifteen Palestinians and wounded many more as they suppressed protests held at border posts facing Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza to mark the 63rd anniversary of the founding of the Zionist state.
This latest massacre of Palestinian civilians inflicted by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) again demonstrates the Israeli government’s brazenly unlawful operations. The situation also exposes the Obama administration’s “humanitarian” pretext for the bombardment of Libya.
NATO’s war is supposedly necessary to protect unarmed civilians from the possibility of being killed by government forces—but …

The official 7/7 account, as with 9/11, is a pack of lies. Though several independent researchers have done a great job in exposing the myth, it has been bolstered by a faux inquest, a fawning corporate media, and a largely unquestioning, overly trusting public.
Most notably, John Hill’s film 7/7 Ripple Effect reviews the evidence and lays out an alternate (and much more credible) narrative. I highly recommend it; you can view it here.
7/7 exhibits eerie similarities with the 9/11 cover-up including the simultaneous drills taking place …
More mayhem in Gaza via comrades from ISM:
On the afternoon of Thursday April 7th, Israeli forces escalated their attacks on the Gaza Strip. The murderous offensive has killed 18 people so far, the majority of them being civilians. Among the massacred are a mother, her daughter, two children, two elderly men and four members of Al Qassam Brigades. More than sixty people have been injured, some are still fighting for their lives. Since Thursday afternoon the Gaza …

Every so often attention is called anew to the doubts surrounding the true character of the events surrounding the 9/11 attacks. Recently, the report of the collapse of Building 7 represented such an occasion. Any close student of 9/11 is aware of the many serious discrepancies between the official version of what took place and the actual happenings on that fateful day in 2001. David Ray Griffin and others have analyzed and assessed these discrepancies in such an objective and compelling …

Human rights campaigners slammed revelations today that British troops were being trained in the use of attack drones by Israeli forces as “shameful.”
The use of the pilotless craft by Israel during its recent assault on Gaza has been roundly condemned by human rights organisations.
Campaigners warned that the drones had been used in “extra-judicial” killings and “serious human rights abuses by the Israeli Defence Force in Gaza.”
The Ministry of Defence has placed a £1 billion order for a consignment of Watchkeeper UAV 450 drones, manufactured by Israeli arms firm …

Power does not rest with the electorate. It does not reside with either of the two major political parties. It is not represented by the press. It is not arbitrated by a judiciary that protects us from predators. Power rests with corporations. And corporations gain very lucrative profits from war, even wars we have no chance of winning. All polite appeals to the formal systems of power will not end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We must physically obstruct the war machine or accept a role as …
Sunday 12 December, London Morning Star.
MPs will vote today on the Police Reform Bill, which contains a plethora of proposals concerning election of police commissioners, setting up a police reserve force, alcohol licensing, drugs enforcement and banning permanent protests in Parliament Square.
But this massive Bill also contains one clause which has been inserted at the request of a foreign government.
Clause 151 would give the Director of Public Prosecutions a veto over whether an arrest warrant could be issued for war crime suspects.
This would essentially allow the …
How can you claim to understand war if you don’t understand the events that trigger it?

It has been obvious for several years that the worldwide peace movement, if you can call it that, is a total sham. It needs a radical transformation. And groups like Code Pink can’t be expected to lead it because truth demands the blue flame of anger, not flower power.
Governments and media propagandists have failed in containing the force of truth. And their betrayal of humanity in these dark times will not be …
