Tuesday 11-24 Innocent Man Blinded In One Eye At Bagram

Bagram: A living hell In 2002 Deghayes was arrested in Pakistan and was "sold" to the US for a bounty. He was taken first to Bagram and then Guantanamo, where he was imprisoned without trial for five years. During his time at Guantanamo he was blinded in one eye, which was already damaged since childhood, after guards repeatedly rubbed pepper spray in it. The only "evidence" against him was a clip from an Islamic propaganda film showing Chechen fighters, one of which the US authorities claimed was him. It later transpired that the image was not of Deghayes but of an Abu Walid, a Chechan rebel who had been killed some time in 2004.

US Plans to Copy Iraq Prison Strategy in Afghanistan Iraqi Police Describe US Prisons as 'Terrorist Factories'

Lowering the Bar: Kindergarten Recruitment - How old is old enough for students to be approached by military recruiters? How about ten weeks into kindergarten? Last week at the dinner table, my five-year-old son announced blithely, "Soldiers came to school today." He then added, "They only kill bad people. They don't kill good people." We need equal time in public schools to explain how people are killed, maimed and tortured in our secret military prisons without trial though kindergarten should be off limits to recruiters for war or for peace.

In Afghanistan “people hate the Americans from the bottom of their hearts” “The first time they came my brother ran out and he was wounded by an airstrike. They took him to the hospital but brought back his body. Eight days later my grandfather was shot when he went out of the mosque.” Mr Shinwari added: “They should just stay in their bases. More troops won’t bring peace. We need economic development, not soldiers.”

More Jewish Control of the Mainstream Media in America We Are Told Does Not Exist “Gaza: ‘I watched an Israeli soldier shoot dead my two little girls’“ “Gaza family says Israeli troops killed children waving white headscarves” “IDF soldiers ordered to shoot at Gaza rescuers” “Israel accused of executing parents in front of children in Gaza” “Israel defends killing of Gaza doctor’s daughters” “Lawyers–‘Israel Used Uranium in Gaza genocide‘” My memory isn’t what it used to be, but I don’t remember any headlines like these appearing in the New York Times during Israel’s recent feeding frenzy in Gaza, do you?

The 'Real' Jobless Rate: 17.5% Of Workers Are Unemployed a former U-6 gauge was in existence previously and peaked at 14.3 percent in 1982 - This article does not mention the absolute fudging of the numbers by the BLS using the Birth Death model to lower the real unemployment rate from 21.%% to 17.5%.

Ben Bernstein Responds To Mantiq al-Tayr's essay Did Israel Kill JFK? We the Jews, RULE your asses. We print your money, then loan it to you at interest. You are totally in OUR control.

What are you going to do about it? Answer. Nothing. You’re going to sit behind your computer screen while we have our way with your entire life and family. You’re GREAT GRANDCHILDREN will be our slaves. Nothing you can do about it.

You’re Congress is going to send us even MORE money. You people deserve to be our slaves, because you’re all so ignorant. What ever will you do? We CONTROL your government. We CONTROL your economy. We CONTROL your lives. What will you do? Maybe a better question is what CAN you do? Nothing. Kill jews? HA!!

Most Jews don’t even know half of what’s going on. And even if they did, they’d never support your efforts to kill Jews in order to free yourselves from OUR slavery we have placed you all in.

Good luck, slaves.

Obscure Polish Book Sheds Light On Elusive Rothschild Financial Link to The Militant Messiah, (And Satanist) Jacob Frank

Who's Lying About Personal Spending? Here are your possibilities:

•The BEA is lying. In the third quarter they claim that PCE lead to an aggregate change of +1.2%. •Business that remit sales tax are lying. The overall sales tax collections in the 3rd quarter were down 8.2% from last year's levels, and this is the fourth quarter in a row that year-over-year declines were posted. One of these two reports is a lie.

Cities find the fine print is costing millions Local governments fork over billions in fees on investments gone bad A few years ago, Detroit struck a derivatives deal with UBS and other banks that allowed it to save more than $2 million a year in interest on $800 million worth of bonds. But the fine print carried a potentially devastating condition. If the city's credit rating dropped, the banks could opt out of the deal and demand a sizable breakup fee. That's precisely what happened in January: After years of fiscal trouble, Detroit saw its credit rating slashed to junk. Suddenly the sputtering Motor City was on the hook for a $400 million tab.

Blackwater's Secret War in Pakistan At a covert forward operating base run by the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, members of an elite division of Blackwater are at the center of a secret program in which they plan targeted assassinations of suspected Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives, "snatch and grabs" of high-value targets and other sensitive action inside and outside Pakistan, an investigation by The Nation has found. The Blackwater operatives also assist in gathering intelligence and help run a secret US military drone bombing campaign that runs parallel to the well-documented CIA predator strikes, according to a well-placed source within the US military intelligence apparatus.

After finishing his remarks in the East Room, he walked with first lady Michelle Obama into the grand hallway across the main floor of the Executive Mansion.

Obama left when he had finished presenting the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award. His war council met a short time later to discuss options for Afghanistan and Pakistan.
