  • ‘Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra in Syria may have significant amounts of sarin’! 
    by http://rt.com/news/ 
    The US military have reportedly proved that sarin gas production is going on among some Sunni salafists in Iraq, and via Turkey, can reach Syrian rebels, former Pentagon official Michael Maloof told RT, citing classified sources.

    RT: France, the US and UK are saying the UN report  clearly points to the Assad government’s involvement in the  August attack . But how can they be so sure, especially as the  document states that improvised rockets may have been used,  possibly pointing to rebel involvement?

    Michael Maloof:
    I have a report from a source who has  direct connections with classified information and he basically  told me that [the] US military did an assessment based upon 50  indicators and clandestine interviews that the sourcing of sarin  originated out of Iraq and into Turkey before some of it was  confiscated in May in Turkey. He believes that since that report  was disseminated in August in 2013, that there has actually been  a more significant amount of sarin production both in Iraq and in  Turkey going to the opposition, principally Al-Qaeda and  Al-Nusra.

    That was their specific target, to see to what extent Al-Qaeda  was actually involved in production, in research and  dissemination. He says what was confiscated was bench level or  small specimens at the time, but that the production now they  believe is much more robust and that the non-proliferation,  genie, as he says, is no longer exclusive. So there’s quite an  increasing concern that this is still ongoing, that production is  occurring among some Sunni salafists in Iraq and continues to be  transported into Turkey.

    RT: Can you tell us more about that classified document  you’ve seen, which shows that the US knew that Al-Qaeda linked  rebels in Syria had sarin gas?

    MM: The document itself was published in August 2013 by  the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC). It’s part of the  intelligence community. The fact that some of it was actually  captured in May along the border in Turkey and it was actually  Al-Qaeda, and since it was disseminated my sources are telling me  that production has probably increased significantly and sarin  gas is being produced quite widely now.  That it’s actually  ongoing and there’s actually a Saudi financier whose name I’m  trying to obtain right now.

    This raises a whole host of questions, and even though Mr Kerry  says we know what the origin of the August 21 shot was into the  outskirts of Damascus that killed hundreds of people including  children, he tells me that they have been scouring Syria for more  than a year looking at all the Syrian military activities and  that they have no information on any artillery having been fired  that day at that time into that location. So this raises all  kinds of further questions as to what this information is which  Kerry possesses, but refuses to share with the world.

    RT: Why is the US not taking any action against the  Syrian rebels then? After all, they believe that Al-Qaeda, their  sworn enemy has chemical weapons.

    MM: Clearly the administration does not want to get more  deeply involved in a Middle East conflict.  It’s probably a  political and policy call on the Obama administration’s part.  Again, this is speculation on my part, but I think it would go  absolutely against the grain of trying to assist the rebels and I  think the administration’s goal really is regime change. You have  an opposition and foreign fighters that have now integrated into  the opposition being involved in this. This absolutely goes  contrary to what their policy direction is and results in  tremendous confusion.

Collapsing Asian Currencies? Why is the Indian Rupee Depreciating?

USD-INR-Indian_Rupee_Collapsing-Aug2013

  • Collapsing Asian Currencies? Why is the Indian Rupee Depreciating? 
    by Kavaljit Singh, http://www.globalresearch.ca/
    The Indian rupee touched a lifetime low of 68.85 against the US dollar on August 28, 2013. The rupee plunged by 3.7 percent on the day in its biggest single-day percentage fall in more than two decades. Since January 2013, the rupee has lost more than 20 percent of its value, the biggest loser among the Asian currencies.

    There is no denying that India is not the only emerging market experiencing a rapid decline in its currency’s value. Several emerging market currencies are also experiencing sharp depreciation over the prospect of imminent tapering of the US Federal Reserve’s policy of quantitative easing (QE) program. The South African rand and the Brazilian real touched four-year lows against the US dollar in June 2013. Except the Chinese Yuan and Bangladeshi Taka, most Asian currencies have witnessed sharp depreciation since the beginning of 2013.

    Nevertheless, the Indian rupee has fared much worse than other emerging market currencies because of its twin deficits – current account and fiscal deficits. The foreign investors are particularly concerned over India’s bloated current account deficit (CAD) which surged to a record high of US$88.2 billion (4.8 percent of GDP) in 2012-13. Despite a modest recovery in the rupee’s value between September 4 and 12, the investors remain wary of India’s excessive dependence on volatile “hot money” flows to finance its current account deficit.

    Over the past several months, India’s exports have considerably slowed down due to weak demand from traditional markets such as the US and Europe. While high imports of gold and crude oil have pushed country’s trade and current account deficits wider. The gold and silver imports were nearly $33 billion (bn) during January-May 2013.

    From Capital Glut to Capital Flight
    There is ample reason for concern that capital outflows from India and other emerging markets will rapidly accelerate if the Federal Reserve decides to curtail its bond-buying program on September 17. This move would lead to higher interest rates in the US and investors may dump risky emerging markets assets in favor of safe havens.

    Since the beginning of QE program, much of the money has leaked into emerging markets offering higher yields and better growth prospects. The emerging markets have been the biggest beneficiaries of Fed’s loose monetary policy, which has pumped extra liquidity since the global financial crisis of 2008. According to the IMF, emerging markets received nearly $4 trillion in capital flows from 2009 to early this year.

    The investors borrowed cheap short-term money in the US and invested in higher yielding assets in India, Indonesia, South Africa and other emerging markets. This resulted in more money flowing into debt, equity and commodity markets in these countries. In India, many companies resorted to heavy borrowings overseas. The massive capital inflows also enabled India to comfortably finance its trade and current account deficits rather than addressing the structural aspects of CAD.

    However, this money will quickly leave India and other emerging markets when the tapering of QE program begins. Already, emerging markets are witnessing a huge outflow of dollars as investors have started pulling money out of bond and equity markets. The foreign investors pulled out a record Rs.620 bn ($10 bn) from the Indian debt and equity markets during June-July 2013. If the Federal Reserve decides to taper the QE program, the liquidity withdrawal would continue to put pressure on the rupee over the next 12 to 18 months.

  • Who Are The Deniers Now? Record Ice Growth in 2013?! 
    by http://www.activistpost.com/ 
    Global warming skeptics have been repeatedly and viciously attacked by condescending “experts” and their fan clubs as deniers, flat-earth Neanderthals, oil-industry cronies, anti-environment cretins, and generally uninformed idiots.

    When did it become wrong to question the “official” version of climate change? Like the establishment hasn’t lied to us in the past.

    Significant evidence has recently come to light that should make all warmists pause and consider that they may have been duped by banksters champing at the bit to tax the air and control our lifestyles.

    NASA released a recent image of the Arctic ice cap that shows record ice growth over last year:

    DailyMail reports that the 60% increase or 920,000 square miles of new ice has forced the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was forced to make urgent changes to their annual climate report.

    Shockingly, some mainstream news sources used this image to claim that the ice caps were melting down to nothing. LiveScience posted the record ice growth image with the headline “Shrinking Arctic Ice Will Lead to Ice-Free Summers”.

Israel Chemical Arms, WMD, Cause of Concern!

  • Israel chemical arms, WMD, cause of concern: Iran! 
    by http://www.presstv.com/ 
    Iran has reiterated its opposition to chemical weapons, saying Israel’s stockpile of chemical arms and weapons of mass destruction remains a source of grave concern.

    “As we have repeatedly announced, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been a victim of chemical weapons and has always expressed its opposition to weapons of mass destruction and chemical weapons,” Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham told reporters in her weekly press conference on Tuesday.

    She described as a “positive step” the decision by the Syrian government to join the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC).

    “Concerns still remain over refusal of other countries, including the Zionist regime [of Israel], to join [the convention] and strategies must be directed in a way to allay these concerns,” Afkham added.Israel reportedly maintains between 200 and 400 atomic warheads, but under its policy of so-called nuclear ambiguity, it has never denied nor confirmed its possession of the weapons of mass destruction.

    The Iranian spokesperson also expressed concerns over armed Syrian opposition’s possession of chemical weapons, saying evidence suggests that “terrorists and Takfiri groups” possess chemical weapons in Syria.

    On September 11, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said the country wants to join the Chemical Weapons Convention following a Russian proposal to Damascus to place its chemical weapons under international control.

    Following Muallem’s remarks, US President Barack Obama, whose administration has been intensively campaigning for strikes on Syria, suggested that the planned strikes could be averted if the Syrian “gesture” is “real.” He also asked the Congress to delay a scheduled vote on the strike against Syria.

    Afkham further said that the world public opinion welcomes any initiative to avert a war, urging all countries to take steps responsibly in this regard.
    She dismissed reports about Iran’s military presence in Syria, emphasizing that the Islamic Republic is making its utmost to prevent a war through interaction with all international bodies and opponents of war.

    Afkham reaffirmed Iran’s call for political solution to the Syria crisis, adding that the Islamic Republic is ready to dispatch humanitarian aid to the crisis-stricken country.

    The war rhetoric against Syria gained momentum on August 21, when the militants operating inside the country and the foreign-backed Syria opposition claimed that over a thousand people had been killed in a government chemical attack on militant strongholds on the outskirts of Damascus.

    Damascus has repeatedly said the deadly attack was a false-flag operation carried out by the Takfiri groups in a bid to draw in foreign military intervention.

… it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” from 4:22 onwards

“In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Doctor Uses New Technology To “Re Grow” Man’s Finger!

  • S. FL Doctor Uses New Technology To “Re-Grow” Man’s Finger! 
    by http://miami.cbslocal.com/ 
    DELRAY BEACH (CBSMiami) — It’s being called a medical marvel. A south Florida doctor used a unique procedure to actually grow back a man’s finger that a horse bit off.

    According to Dr. Eugenio Rodriguez, Paul Halpern, 33, arrived in Delray Beach with his finger in a zip lock bag.  The insurance company wanted the rest of the finger amputated. However, a doctor wanted to try a unique procedure.

    “This one right here, my index finger,” said Halpern. Halpern was feeding his prized, hungry horse when it confused it for a cookie.

    “After the treat it made a mistake. It’s a difficult horse and is had history using our training methods,” Halpern recalled. The mistake cost him a third of his index finger.  “One of the guys that worked with me reached his hand in the horse’s mouth, took the fingertip out, and I jumped in the car, grabbed the rest of my finger wondering what we should do,” said Halpern.

    On the way to the hospital, Paul put his fingertip on a popsicle, but it wasn’t enough to save the extremity. Then, he heard about a Deerfield Beach doctor that might have a way to fix the finger. “He really wanted to have his finger healed, and fast,” said Dr. Eugenio Rodriguez.

Jim Rogers: Fed Chair Hopefuls Are “Lapdogs for the Establishment”!

Jim_Rogers

  • Fed Chair Hopefuls Are “Lapdogs for the Establishment”: Jim Rogers! 
    by | Daily Ticker 
    At last count, more than 350 economists, 38 female House Democrats and about 17 Senators have signed letters to President Obama urging him to nominate Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen as the next Chairman of the Fed. She emerged as the frontrunner for the job now that Larry Summers, a former economic advisor to the president and Treasury Secretary under President Clinton, has withdrawn his name from consideration.

    While Congressional members and economists push their pick for Fed chair, international investor Jim Rogers tells The Daily Ticker: it doesn’t matter who Obama picks because all Fed Chair candidates “are lapdogs for the establishment.” He expects any new Fed chair will continue current policy, which he says is “insane.”

    “They should stop all of this, printing $1 trillion every year,” says Rogers, author of “Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets.” He explains: “The world will suffer very badly, very badly when this comes to an end. It’s an artificial sea of liquidity.”

    And it’s not just the Fed that is contributing to the excess liquidity, according to Rogers. “For the fist time in recorded history…every central bank—Japan, Europe, England and the U.S.—are “debasing their currencies,” says Rogers.

    The Fed may announce as early as this Wednesday–when its two-day policy meeting concludes–the beginning of its retreat from the money printing that is upsetting Rogers. Two-thirds of the 47 economists surveyed by The Wall Street Journal expect the Fed will announce Wednesday a reduction in its $85 billion worth of monthly Treasury and mortgage-backed securities purchases. Their most common expectation: a $15 billion cut. At the same time economists expect the Fed will reduce its growth forecast for the year.

5 Lies Invented to Spin UN Report on Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack!

Ministry_of_Propaganda_MSM

  • 5 Lies Invented to Spin UN Report on Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack
    by Tony Cartalucci, www.Infowars.com 
    As predicted days before the UN’s Syrian chemical weapons report was made public, the West has begun spinning the findings to bolster their faltering narrative regarding alleged chemical weapon attacks on August 21, 2013 in eastern Damascus, Syria. The goal of course, is to continue demonizing the Syrian government while simultaneously sabotaging a recent Syrian-Russian deal to have Syria’s chemical weapon stockpiles verified and disarmed by independent observers.

    A barrage of suspiciously worded headlines attempt to link in the mind of unobservant readers the UN’s “confirmation” of chemical weapons use in Syria and Western claims that it was the Syrian government who used them. Additionally, the US, British, and French governments have quickly assembled a list of fabrications designed to spin the UN report to bolster their still-unsubstantiated accusations against the Syrian government.
     –
    The BBC’s article, “US and UK insist UN chemicals report ‘blames Syria’,” again states unequivocally, [emphasis added]:

    The UN report did not attribute blame for the attack, as that was not part of its remit.
    However, that did not stop UK Foreign Secretary William Hague who claimed:

    From the wealth of technical detail in the report – including on the scale of the attack, the consistency of sample test results from separate laboratories, witness statements, and information on the munitions used and their trajectories – it is abundantly clear that the Syrian regime is the only party that could have been responsible.

    And US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power who stated:

    The technical details of the UN report make clear that only the regime could have carried out this large-scale chemical weapons attack.

    French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius is also quoted as saying:

    When you look at the findings carefully, the quantities of toxic gas used, the complexity of the mixes, the nature, and the trajectory of the carriers, it leaves absolutely no doubt as to the origin of the attack.

    The Washington Post went one step further, and perhaps foolishly, laid out a detailed explanation of each fabrication the West is using to spin the latest UN report. In an article titled, “The U.N. chemical weapons report is pretty damning for Assad,” 5 points are made and explained as to why the UN report “points” to the Syrian government.

    1. Chemical weapons were delivered with munitions not used by rebels: This claim includes referencing “Syria watcher” Eliot Higgins also known as “Brown Moses,” a UK-based armchair observer of the Syrian crisis who has been documenting weapons used throughout the conflict on his blog.

    While Higgins explains these particularly larger diameter rockets (140mm and 330mm) have not been seen (by him) in the hands of terrorists operating within and along Syria’s borders, older posts of his show rockets similar in construction and operation, but smaller, most certainly in the hands of the militants.

    The Washington Post contends that somehow these larger rockets require “technology” the militants have no access to. This is categorically false. A rocket is launched from a simple tube, and the only additional technology terrorists may have required for the larger rockets would have been a truck to mount them on. For an armed front fielding stolen tanks, finding trucks to mount large metal tubes upon would seem a rather elementary task – especially to carry out a staged attack that would justify foreign intervention and salvage their faltering offensive.

    2. The sarin was fired from a regime-controlled area: The Washington Post contends that:

    The report concludes that the shells came from the northwest of the targeted neighborhood. That area was and is controlled by Syrian regime forces and is awfully close to a Syrian military base. If the shells had been fired by Syrian rebels, they likely would have come from the rebel-held southeast.

    What the Washington Post fails to mention are the “limitations” the UN team itself put on the credibility of their findings. On page 18 of the report (22 of the .pdf), the UN states [emphasis added]:

    The time necessary to conduct a detailed survey of both locations as well as take samples was very limited. The sites have been well travelled by other individuals both before and during the investigation. Fragments and other possible evidence have clearly been handled/moved prior to the arrival of the investigation team.

    It should also be noted that militants still controlled the area after the alleged attack and up to and including during the investigation by UN personnel. Any tampering or planting of evidence would have been carried out by “opposition” members – and surely the Syrian government would not point rockets in directions that would implicate themselves.

False Flag Operation against Syria? Lessons from the Vietnam War and the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution!

  • False Flag Operation against Syria? Lessons from the Vietnam War and the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution! 
    by Timothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News, via http://www.globalresearch.ca/
    The Obama administration wants war with Syria.  It has been planned for quite some time.  It does not matter what kind of deal was made.  It does not mean that the crisis in Syria is over and that a peaceful solution is in a matter of time.  The US will attempt anything to get into another war including a “False Flag” operation, which could be well on its way.  Syria has just been given a week to declare its chemical weapons with the condition to allow international inspectors into the country.

    The deal was reached between US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Geneva.  At the press conference before the agreement, Kerry had said “Sure, he could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week – turn it over, all of it without delay and allow the full and total accounting, but he isn’t about to do it and it can’t be done“.  No matter what Russia and the international community do to prevent any escalation of war, the Obama administration wants to launch strikes destabilizing the Assad government and the Middle East.  President Bashar al-Assad will not accept continued US threats against his country while Western backed rebels are committing atrocities against civilians, most recently the attack on the Christian city of Maaloula.  Syrian government forces eventually regained control of Maaloula.  The talks between the US and Russia does not necessarily mean that a peace process will be established after a 2-year civil war.  The possibility of a False Flag operation will be an option for the US government.  A False Flag operation can take place since the majority of governments and people around the world (including the American people) are against a US attack on Syria.

    The stage is set.  RT News recently reported that multiple sources had informed them that the rebels were going to launch a chemical attack on Israel to cause a “major provocation” to blame the Assad government.  Israel would then retaliate with US forces on standby.  But that did not happen, because it was possible that RT News exposed it just in time.  Syria is part of the chess game as Former General Wesley Clark clearly stated to Amy Goodman of Democracy Now in 2007:

    A. Goodman: Do you see a replay in what happened in the lead-up to the war with Iraq — the allegations of the weapons of mass destruction, the media leaping onto the bandwagon?

    Gen. Wesley Clark:   Well, in a way. But, you know, history doesn’t repeat itself exactly twice. What I did warn about when I testified in front of Congress in 2002, I said if you want to worry about a state, it shouldn’t be Iraq, it should be Iran. But this government, our administration, wanted to worry about Iraq, not Iran.

    I knew why, because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.” And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.”

    So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” I said, “Is it classified?” He said, “Yes, sir.” I said, “Well, don’t show it to me.” And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, “You remember that?” He said, “Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!”

    Washington has invaded Iraq in 2003.  It had ordered a NATO attack on Libya resulting in the death of its long time president Muammar Gaddafi leaving the country in chaos.  Sudan has been divided which paved the way for south Sudan’s independence with Washington’s help.  Somalia is targeted by Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) drone war.  Lebanon is constantly targeted by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and intelligence apparatus (Mossad).  The last conflict between Lebanon and Israel was in 2006 when Hezbollah repelled Israel’s attack leading to its defeat.  Syria is a definitive target on Washington’s list.  The Obama administration is relentless in its pursuit to start another war.  Syria is the next target for Washington and Tel Aviv.  If Washington and their allies defeat Syria and Iran, then their goal of controlling the Middle East will become a reality.

As the Fantasy Dies: “Panic Will Ensue”!

implosion_demolition_DesertInn

  • As the Fantasy Dies: “Panic Will Ensue”! 
    by Mac Slavo, SHTFplan.com 
    The US government may have funded studies and propaganda material which says that people will not panic, loot or go hungry in the midst of a crisis, but the fact of the matter is that history has shown otherwise.

    It’s often the case that, despite countless warnings from those considered to be fringe lunatics, the vast majority of the populace is blindsided by horrific, paradigm-altering events. The signs are almost always there, but people simply refuse to believe it can happen to them. ”It” always happens somewhere else, and we get to watch it play out on television from the comfort of our living rooms.

    But, as financial guru and strategic investor Bill Fleckenstein points out in the following highly insightful interview with King World News, America’s fantasy of unlimited borrowing, consumption and confidence will soon be revealed for the sham that it really is. And when the masses realize what has happened – that the government and Federal reserve are trapped and the “great unwind” finally begins – it will lead to nothing short of widespread panic on a level never before seen.

    And this time, it’ll be right outside of our front doors.

    Right now, people continue to believe that the same idiots that created all of these problems, namely the central banks, are going to somehow get us out of it with the exact same policies that got us into it, only at a much higher (aggressive) level of pursuing those policies.

    We’ve had so much artificial stimulus, and we’ve misallocated so much capital.  And over the couple of decades we’ve been doing this we’ve kind of broken the economy and the financial system.  So, I don’t think you can worry about what’s on the other side.  We haven’t even gotten people to understand the charade that we have.

    What the masses have done over and over again is to believe one more time that it’s all going to be OK … We are in a unique moment in history.  The whole world is printing confetti, and (yet) people seem to think that’s going to work out fine.

    The longer you keep pursuing insane policies, the more you pile (them) on top of each other, the worse it gets … So, when the Fed can’t print money and we have to deal with this, it’s going to be brutal.

    The fact of the matter is Americans, in the aggregate, don’t see any reason to own metal.  They believe in the lunatics at the Fed, and the rest of the Western world is that way (as well).  Obviously Asia doesn’t quite see it that way.  But it’s understandable why the average American doesn’t buy gold — If they believe in a fantasy, why would they need it?

    As the fantasy dies, then they will understand the need to own gold.
    Via King World News: Full Interview 

    As an investment adviser and strategist, Fleckenstein obviously focuses his dialogue on the financial and economic, and in this case the asset that would protect his investors from the disaster that is coming. This is not to say, however, that he is solely recommending gold as the only crisis-proof investment.

    Read between the lines and if you understand the need to own gold in this environment it means you also understand why precious metals will soar in value during a crisis. Likewise, you would no doubt understand that should gold and silver skyrocket in price, so too will other essential assets.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Pakistani National TV Reveals That Obama’s Claim to Have Killed Osama Bin Laden is “An American HOAX!”

http://edition.cnn.com/2002/WORLD/asiapcf/south/01/18/gen.musharraf.binladen/

Osama died in December 2001 of kidney failure!

  • Osama Bin Laden, the CIA asset, most likely died in Dec 2001 due to complications which arose from his kidney failure. His death was widely documented (see below also)!
  • PAKISTANI NATIONAL TV REVEALS THAT OBAMA’S CLAIM TO HAVE KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN IS “AN AMERICAN HOAX.” — Paul Craig Roberts! 
    by http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/ 
    By readers’ request, this is a reposting of a translation of a Pakistani National TV interview with an eyewitness to the alleged SEAL Team Six attack that allegedly killed Osama bin Laden. I made the translation available two years ago in an article prior to the creation of this website.

    B
    efore you believe “your” government’s lies about Syria, remember “your” government’s lies about Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction.” Remember Washington’s lies about the Gulf of Tonkin that unleashed the Vietnam war. Remember the lies about Gaddafi and Libya. Remember  the lies about 9/11, the lies about the murders of JFK, Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King. Remember the Northwoods Project that the Joint Chiefs of Staff wanted President John F. Kennedy to embrace.

    The Northwoods project called for shooting down US airliners, shooting down people on the streets of Miami and Washington, D.C., and strafing Cuban refugee boats in order to blame Castro and build public support for regime change in Cuba.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Northwoods

    Sound familiar?  Sound like regime change in Iraq, Libya, Syria?

    The top secret Operation Northwoods plot against Cuba and the American people was officially released and is available online, as are numerous histories of the proposal by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff to kill Americans in order to create support for invading Cuba. Keep this established fact in mind before you again repeat the gullible and reassuring statement: “our government wouldn’t kill its own people.”

    Try to find any of Washington’s agendas about which the government spoke truthfully. The US government is so enamored of its secret agendas that Washington never speaks truth.  Keep in mind that Washington’s 12 years of wars, which have doubled the US national debt and left the federal government without the means to help the rising number of Americans whose jobs have been given to foreigners and whose homes are foreclosed, have their origin in 9/11, the investigation of which was prevented by the White House.

    After resisting for one year the pressure from 9/11 family members for an investigation, the White House created a political panel to listen to the government’s line and to write it down in the 9/11 Commission Report, a report promptly disavowed by both co-chairmen of the commission and the chief legal advisor, all of whom described the 9/11 commission as “set up to fail.”

    The Obama regime has shown no interest in investigating how the most powerful national security state of all time, a Stasi police state that spies on the entire world, could be defeated by a few Saudi Arabians, who had no support from any government or any intelligence service, or why instead of a real investigation, the Bush White House chose an orchestrated cover-up.

    The US government’s claim to have killed bin Laden has a zero probability of being true. According to Pakistani eye witnesses to the attack on the alleged Osama bin Laden compound in Pakistan, the Obama regime’s claim is simply more theater, more lies.

    In this interview from Pakistani National TV you can learn about your government’s lies about killing Osama bin Laden.

    Pakistan TV Report Contradicts US Claim of Bin Laden’s Death — Paul Craig Roberts

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/pakistan-tv-report-contradicts-us-claim-of-bin-laden-s-death/25915  August 6, 2011

    In my article, “Creating Evidence Where There Is None,” http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2011/08/05/creating-evidence-where-there-is-none/  about the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden by a commando team of US Seals in Abbottabad, Pakistan, I reported a Pakistani National TV interview with Muhammad Bashir, who lives next door to the alleged ”compound” of Osama bin Laden. I described the story that Bashir gave of the ”attack” and its enormous difference from the story told by the US government. In Bashir’s account, every member of the landing party and anyone brought from the house died when the helicopter exploded on lift-off. I wrote that a qualified person could easily provide a translation of the interview, but that no American print or TV news organization had reported or investigated the interview of Muhammad Bashir by Pakistani National TV.

    An attorney with a British Master of Laws degree in international law and diplomacy, who was born in Pakistan, provided the translation below. He writes: ”I have no problem with being identified as the translator, but would prefer to remain anonymous.”

    The translator provides these definitions and clarifications:

     ”Gulley” is generally referred (in Urdu) to a sidewalk or pavement. Also for the space between two houses.

    “kanal” is a traditional unit of land area, so that one kanal equals exactly 605 square yards or 1/8 Acre; this is equivalent to about 505. 857 square meters.

    Muhammad Bashir refers to himself as ”We”. This is common respectable language for the self; to use the plural term instead of singular. The English language equivalent would be the ”Royal, We”.

    Urdu is the national language and lingua franca of Pakistan. The translator:

    I have translated the entire text of the video.
    I have tried my best to keep words in a chronological order, but in some cases this is not possible, as in translation words must be replaced in reverse order to make sense! However, I have had to put a few words in brackets to clarify meaning. If you want to ask about any section—please supply time stamp and I will supply a contextual text.
