Long predicted in these quarters, the destabilization of the Obama administration is in full swing. With the GOP charging that the Obama administration was covering-up warnings about terrorism in Libya, it now emerges that it was now-acting CIA director Michael J. Morell who deleted the references, in opposition to the now-deposed David Petraeus.
We’ve noted the links between organized crime and the NFL in the past, highlighting the milieu of the San Francisco 49ers. It develops that much of the 49ers recent success was (allegedly) due to their use of sports software diagnostics developed by German software maker SAP and employed by the team’s chief operating officer Paraag Marathe. One can but wonder if the consummately corrupt world of the NFL will be used to enhance revenues for SAP (and who knows who, or what, else?)
Numerous elements have come into focus in connection with the investigation of the Boston bombing. They include a subsidiary of Dick Cheney’s Halliburton. In addition, the mosque they attended and at which they may have been radicalized is part of the milieu shepherded by Grover Norquist.
The news cycle in this country is dominated by coverage of the Boston bombings. This is predictable. So is the tendency toward simplistic and/or one-dimensional analysis. Generally, we’re hearing: It was the “government,” “home-grown domestic (i.e. right-wing, Aryan types) terrorists,” or “Islamic terrorists.” As this post indicates, the divisions among these are not nearly so simple.
For years, we’ve been covering the pivotal issue of World War II flight capital, now on the front burner. Germany’s STERN discusses it. So does Tagesspiegel. 8 of 10 Greeks favor Germany paying their WWII debt. So do that country’s political parties. Saying that the debt has been paid, Germany continues to dissemble about the issue.
The assassination of the head of the Colorado Corrections Department has raised questions. One possible motive might be Tom Clements’ recent denial of a petition by Homaidan al-Turki, a Saudi national convicted on sexual abuse charges and suspected of involvement in terrorism. Al-Turki enjoys the support of the Saudi government and populace, as well as the State Department.
Earlier this month, the Tea Party/GOP Right demonstrated their hypocrisy, as well as the degree of solidarity between the Islamic fascists of the Muslim Brotherhood and the GOP. The Jihad Watch website received the “People’s Choice Award” at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Committee. The awarding of the honor was blocked, however by the Tea Party Republicans, who would only consent to give the award if the administrators of the site would agree not to criticize Grover Norquist.
For years, we’ve covered the heroic, lonely research done by Daniel Hopsicker on the 9/11-related flight schools in Southern Florida. One of the principals in the intelligence-community-controlled drug trafficking milieu through which Mohamed Atta and associates infiltrated the United States was recently arrested in Houston for drug smuggling. Dekkers has entered a seal plea agreement, which will likely mute any public disclosure of the findings in the case.
We recall the tsunami of praise, Hosannas and Hallelujahs gushing forth from the world’s media and political punditry. Hailing the “Arab Spring” as the dawning of a new enlightenment in that part of the world, they missed the boat–fundamentally. We, on the other hand, were warning that this phenomenon was a Nazi operation, having been initiated by powerful corporate forces in the second administration of George W. Bush, it had its trigger with the WikiLeaks milieu–itself a far-right, Nazi-linked entity, as we demonstrated in FTR’s 732 and #745. (In addition to the documentation in the original WikiLeaks/Arab Spring series, see the article excerpted below.) Before delving into details, an excellent overview of recent events in Egypt was provided in an English-language blog by a citizen of that tortured country. The contradictions and deadly undercurrents of unfolding events were eloquently summed up by Mahmoud Salem in “Imagine.”
Long able to escape legal retribution for his actions, Huffman Aviation operator Rudi Dekkers appears to have run out of luck. The Dutch/German pilot who ran the flight school through which 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta and his German and Austrian associates infiltrated the United States has been arrested in Houston for drug trafficking. It remains to be seen what comes of this investigation, but the implications are potentially staggering.
