US military spreading death

Tuesday, 29 September 2009


Back in 1992, less than a year after I began my journey of learning the truth about who really runs this country, who the traitors are and how deep the corruption runs, Bush, Sr. began promoting a new world order. As a matter of fact, he used that term 162 times while he was president. [1] Those of us who tried to explain the planned destruction of America were called the usual names: wackos, anti-government this or that. The same year, Joe Biden, traitor to this republic, openly on the senate floor outlined the 'Wilsonian Vision' for a new world order.

One world government. New World Order. Just code words for anti-government, "disenfranchised" kooks writing all those books because they hate President Clinton. No, make that Bush, Jr. No, make that Marxist Obama/Soetoro. Millions like me have given up precious time with our family, fun is a word of the past and forget any paychecks - just because we don't have have anything better to do! What I learned in the first year of my research scared the hell out of me and that took care of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. There was a job to do and that was try and reach every American who would listen. Back then, there were few. Now, we are on the brink and the destroyers no longer hide their intentions: More

Israel obstacle to nuke-free Mideast, says Syria

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem urges Israel to yield to the demands pressed by the UN nuclear watchdog and open its nuclear sites to inspection.

The Syrian diplomat said on Monday that the Israeli regime must place all its nuclear installations under the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards, and adhere to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

The objectives of the landmark international treaty are to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote co-operation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to achieve nuclear disarmament.

For decades, Tel Aviv has refused to confirm the well-documented fact that it possesses a significant arsenal of nuclear warheads.

"Syria stresses the need to commit Israel to comply with the resolution adopted by the IAEA ... regarding Israeli nuclear capabilities," Al-Mualem said.

Ridding the world of the sickness of pacifism

Picture the scene: Afghanistan, two hijacked tankers filled with highly inflammable fuel, surrounded by a crowd of Afghans eager to syphon off some for free ... What's the last thing you want to do? Right — drop bombs on the tankers.

That's what a German military commander signaled an American drone airplane to do September 4. Kaboom!! At least 100 human beings incinerated. This incident has led to a lot of controversy in Germany, for Article 26 of Germany's post-war Grundgesetz (Basic Law/Constitution) states: "Acts tending to and undertaken with intent to disturb the peaceful relations between nations, especially to prepare for a war of aggression, shall be unconstitutional. They shall be made a criminal offense."

But NATO (aka the United States) can take satisfaction in the fact that the Germans have put their silly pacifism aside and acted like real men, trained military killers; although prior to this incident the Germans had engaged in some aerial and ground combat, there hadn't been such a dramatic and publicized taking of civilian lives. Deutschland now has more than 4,000 soldiers in Afghanistan, the third largest contingent in the country after the US and Britain, and at home they've just finished building a monument to fallen members of the Bundeswehr (Federal Armed Forces), founded in 1955; 38 members (so far) have surrendered their young lives in Afghanistan.

Miami Herald makes up story on Zelaya, Washington Post and New York Times spread it

WMR usually does not comment on propaganda masked as news emitted daily by the corporate media, but the September 24 report in the Miami Herald deserves to be panned for its flagrant attempt to portray ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya as a foolish “conspiracy theorist.”

After sneaking back into Honduras with the help of loyal elements in the Honduran military, Zelaya has been besieged by Honduran police and military forces inside the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa. The Honduran junta has sporadically cut off electricity, water, and food supplies to the embassy, a violation of international law on the inviolability of diplomatic missions.

The Herald reported on a telephone interview with Zelaya and said the Honduran leader said he was being subjected to “high-frequency radiation” from Israeli mercenaries who are supporting the Honduran junta. The paper also reported that Zelaya said that the Israelis were using “mind-altering” gas and radiation. In actuality, that is not what Zelaya stated in his conversation on September 24 with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who was attending the UN General Assembly session in New York. Chavez said he spoke to Zelaya by phone at 1:00 pm EDT and the Honduran leader said a piece of equipment on the rooftop of a neighboring home had been recovered and brought into the embassy by Zelaya loyalists. When Zelaya checked the gear’s serial number on the Internet, it turned out the equipment was a cell phone jamming device manufactured in Israel. More

U.S. accepts stolen election of Hamid Karzai.

[No need to flashback to US noise about the Iranian elections] The White House has ended weeks of hesitation over how to respond to the Afghan election by accepting President Karzai as the winner despite evidence that up to 20 per cent of ballots cast may have been fraudulent.

Abandoning its previous policy of not prejudging investigations of vote rigging, the Obama Administration has conceded that Mr Karzai will be President for another five years on the basis that even if he were forced into a second round of voting he would almost certainly win it.

The decision will increase pressure on President Obama to justify further US troop deployments to Afghanistan to prop up a regime now regarded as systemically corrupt. More


Iranian bioweapon researcher dies suspiciously

A US-based Iranian doctor working to discover an antitoxin therapy for biological weapons has purportedly died a "suspicious death."

One of the leading bioweapon researchers and a regular keynote speaker at international conferences, Dr. Nasser Talebzadeh Ordoubadi died on Saturday in what his doctors described as a "suspicious death".

Media reports have linked Dr. Talebzadeh Ordoubadi's mysterious death to his notable accomplishments in discovering an antitoxin treatment for bioweapons.

The use of biological and chemical weapons -- which is considered illegal under The Hague convention on rules of warfare -- is feared by many experts more than the use of nuclear weapons. More

France condemns 'sinister' arrest of Pedophile Polanski

Foreign minister demands answers from US as Hollywood stars plead for release of director held over sex with 13-year-old

The fate of the Franco-Polish [Franco-Polish my foot. Roman Polanski is a Jewish Pedophile, period] film director Roman Polanski became an international cause célèbre yesterday as Paris, Warsaw and an extensive cast of figures from world cinema demanded his immediate release from a Swiss jail.

The French Foreign Minister, Bernard Kouchner, protested formally to both the US and Swiss authorities against Mr Polanski's arrest in Zurich on Saturday for having sex with a 13-year-old girl in California in 1977. Mr Kouchner described the circumstances of the arrest, on an American warrant, as "a little sinister". More


Ousted Honduran Leader Addresses UN via Cell Phone

President Zelaya by-passes Israeli jamming devices - used by Mossad and the fascist dictators - to deliver message by cell phone to the UN.

Honduras' ousted president addressed the United Nations General Assembly by cellular phone late Monday from the Brazilian embassy in his country where he is holed up, calling on the world body to guarantee his personal safety and turn back the ''dictatorship'' that has taken power.

''Those who still harbored any doubt that a dictatorship has been installed here can lay those doubts to rest,'' Manuel Zelaya said via a telephone brought to the General Assembly podium by his foreign minister, Patricia Rodas. ''This is a fascist dictatorship that has repressed the Honduran people.'' More


Sex abuse rife in other religions, says Vatican

The Vatican has lashed out at criticism over its handling of its paedophilia crisis by saying the Catholic church was "busy cleaning its own house" and that the problems with clerical sex abuse in other churches were as big, if not bigger.

In a defiant and provocative statement, issued following a meeting of the UN human rights council in Geneva, the Holy See said the majority of Catholic clergy who committed such acts were not paedophiles but homosexuals attracted to sex with adolescent males.

The statement, read out by Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican's permanent observer to the UN, defended its record by claiming that "available research" showed that only 1.5%-5% of Catholic clergy were involved in child sex abuse.

He also quoted statistics from the Christian Scientist Monitor newspaper to show that most US churches being hit by child sex abuse allegations were Protestant and that sexual abuse within Jewish communities was common. More

Yu said all the missiles to be displayed were new models or upgraded models never before made public.

They included two types of surface-to-surface conventional missiles, a land-based cruise missile, surface-to-surface intermediate and long-range missiles that could be equipped with either nuclear or conventional warheads, and nuclear-capable intercontinental missiles, he said. More

Tsunami alert after 7.9-magnitude quake off Samoa

A major 7.9-magnitude quake near Samoa has prompted authorities to issue a tsunami warning for New Zealand and small Pacific islands.

The US Geological Survey reported that the earthquake shook the waters about 120 miles (190 km) southwest of the remote Pacific islands at 1748 GMT on Tuesday.

Experts told CCN network that, according to preliminary data, a three-meter tsunami has been generated around Samoa by the force of the quake.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued the warning to American Samoa, Samoa, Niue Island, the Wallis and Futuna Islands, the Tokelau atolls, the Cook Islands, Tuvalu, Kiribati, the Kermadec Islands and several other small islands.

And It’s Not Only Sibel Edmonds Who Says So

John M. Cole, a former FBI Counterintelligence and Counterespionage Manager, has publicly confirmed the FBI’s decade long investigation of the former State Department Official Marc Grossman. Cole worked for 18 years in the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division. According to Cole, as in over one hundred cases involving Israeli espionage activities directed against the US government, the Grossman case was covered up and buried despite mountains of evidence that was collected.

Here is the public response from John Cole after the publication of The American Conservative magazine’s cover story:
    “I read the recent cover story by The American Conservative magazine. I applaud their courage in publishing this significant interview. I am fully aware of the FBI’s decade-long investigation of the High-level State Department Official named in this article, Marc Grossman, which ultimately was buried and covered up. It is long past time to investigate this case and bring about accountability…”

In November 2006, in an by Jeff Stein published by “Congressional Quarterly” on the cover-up of espionage cases involving Israel, Cole was quoted extensively:

“John M. Cole, an FBI spy catcher who retired in 2004, says that from 1993 to 1995 alone, he had “125 open cases” of Israeli espionage, representing nearly half of all the investigations carried on in his Global Unit, part of the now-defunct National Security division.” Inside the FBI itself, Cole said, tracking suspected Israeli spies was hush-hush.In a sharp break with FBI procedures, he was prohibited from notifying field offices when an investigation crept into their jurisdictions. “No one was supposed to know we were investigating the Israelis,” Cole said.

Zionist West demands access to Iran's secret nuclear plant but not Israel's

World 'leaders' on Friday demanded access for UN inspectors to a secret Iranian nuclear plant , threatening tough new sanctions should Tehran refuse to come clean.

In a dramatic announcement, US President Barack Obama, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Tehran admitted to the UN nuclear watchdog that it had built a second uranium enrichment facility.

Russia appeared to harden its support for new sanctions against Tehran, and China said it had taken note of the information and had urged Iran to cooperate with any probe by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

The Western leaders made it clear that they did not believe that the site had a civilian role, being what one US official said was "the right size" to produce weapons grade uranium but of no use for nuclear fuel production. More Lies


"Zionist regime on a slope of destruction"

Iran said it successfully completed two days of missile tests including the launching of its longest-range missiles, weapons capable of carrying a warhead and striking Israel, U.S. military bases in the Middle East, and parts of Europe.

Iranian state television said the powerful Revolutionary Guard, which controls Iran's missile program, successfully tested upgraded versions of the medium-range Shahab-3 and Sajjil missiles with can fly up to 2,000 kilometers. It was the third and final round of missile tests in two days of drills by the Guard.

The Sajjil-2 missile is Iran's most advanced two-stage surface-to-surface missile and is powered entirely by solid-fuel while the older Shahab-3 uses a combination of solid and liquid fuel in its most advanced form, which is also known as the Qadr-F1.

Solid fuel is seen as a technological breakthrough for any missile program as solid fuel increases the accuracy of missiles in reaching targets.

Front against the Zionist West

The leaders of Libya and Venezuela have called on Africa and South America to create a new alliance to counter Western dominance.They were speaking at the second South America-Africa (ASA) summit held in the Venezuelan island of Margarita, attended by nearly 30 leaders.

Venezuela's Hugo Chavez called on the two continents to unite to secure prosperity for future generations.

Libya's Muammar Gaddafi said he was in favour of a military-style pact.

The summit agenda covers hunger in Africa, the global economic crisis, energy, and the creation of a joint investment fund between Africa and South America.

The leaders agreed to launch a new development bank for South America, the Banco del Sur, with an initial start up investment of $20bn. More

US threatens airstrikes in Pakistan

The United States is threatening to launch airstrikes in the Pakistani city of Quetta as frustration mounts about the US defeat in Afghanistan.

The threat comes amid growing divisions in Washington about whether to deal with the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan by sending more troops or by reducing them and targeting the terrorists.

This weekend the US military was expected to send a request to Robert Gates, the defence secretary, for more troops, as urged by General Stanley McChrystal, the US commander there.

In a leaked strategic assessment of the war, McChrystal warned that he needed extra reinforcements within a year to avert the risk of failure. Although no figure was given, he is believed to be seeking up to 40,000 troops to add to the 68,000 who will be in Afghanistan by the end of this year. More

The latest warning was from America's senior commander in the region General Stanley McChrystal who said "Afghanistan's insurgency is clearly supported from Pakistan".

How Top Generals May Trap Obama in a Losing War

As Obama is facing a lose-lose proposition in Afghanistan, we have to look hard at the role of Gen. McChrystal and the political motivation of Gen. Petraeus.

Front and center in the debate over the Afghan War these days are General Stanley "Stan" McChrystal, Afghan war commander, whose "classified, pre-decisional" and devastating report -- almost eight years and at least $220 billion later, the war is a complete disaster -- was conveniently, not to say suspiciously, leaked to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post by we-know-not-who at a particularly embarrassing moment for Barack Obama; Admiral Michael "Mike" Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who has been increasingly vocal about a "deteriorating" war and the need for more American boots on the ground; and the president himself, who blitzed every TV show in sight last Sunday and Monday for his health reform program, but spent significant time expressing doubts about sending more American troops to Afghanistan. ("I'm not interested in just being in Afghanistan for the sake of being in Afghanistan... or sending a message that America is here for the duration.") More

Obama hails historic resolution to rid world of (Iran) nuclear weapons

The world took its first concerted step towards getting rid of nuclear weapons today when the UN security council voted unanimously for a resolution on disarmament and non-proliferation.

The summit in New York represented the first time the security council had met to focus on the elimination of nuclear weapons. Barack Obama, who at the same time became the first US president to chair a council session, described the resolution as "historic", saying it "enshrines our shared commitment to the goal of a world without nuclear weapons".

The resolution calls for states with nuclear weapons to continue disarming, to ratify a ban on testing them and to agree a treaty stopping the production of fissile material. In return, non weapons states should accept stronger safeguards designed to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. More


Nicolas Sarkozy 'perverted course of justice' in trial of Dominique de Villepin

Peddlar Sarkozy was accused yesterday of perverting the course of justice after he said that Dominique de Villepin, his former rival and boss who is on trial for forgery, was guilty of waging a smear campaign against him.

Mr Sarkozy’s remark, on television from New York, reinforced a widespread view that the so-called Clearstream trial, which opened on Monday, is more political vendetta than judicial process.

“After a two-year investigation, two independent investigating judges ruled that the guilty parties should be tried before a criminal court,” Mr Sarkozy said in an evening news broadcast watched by 12 million people.

This played into the hands of Mr Villepin, the last Prime Minister, who claimed at the opening of the trial on Monday that he was the innocent victim of persecution by a President who was out to destroy him. More


Spectre of nuclear confrontation with Iran

Obama accuses Iran of building secret nuclear enrichment plant

America's 'Jewish President Barack Obama' accused Iran Friday of secretly building a second uranium enrichment plant inside a mountain south of Tehran.

Obama leveled the charge before the start of a G-20 summit of the world’s major economies in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The New York Times, which broke the story on its website, said the secret uranium enrichment facility was being built inside a mountain near the holy city of Qom, 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of Tehran.

Obama, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy were to demand, before the start of the summit, an immediate inspection of the site by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

In Paris the French foreign ministry, which said the statement would be made at 8:30 am (1230 GMT), called the Iranian move “a new serious violation of UN Security Council and IAEA resolutions” which “strengthens our suspicions.” More

Gulf 'states' work to secure support for nuclear sanctions against Iran

Gulf Arab states are to play a new role in the increasingly desperate race to stop Iran's nuclear programme by using their economic leverage to line up support for new tough sanctions, Arab and European officials said today.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will use the prospect of oil contracts, arms deals and work visas to persuade Russia and China - who have been resisting tougher UN sanctions - that their long-term strategic interests lie in the Gulf, not in Iran.

"China and Russia have so far not been presented with the right incentives. They have not been presented with a better substitute," said Sami al-Faraj, an adviser to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), a regional body.

GCC representatives will meet at the UN today with diplomats from the six nations handling nuclear negotiations with Iran - the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China - to discuss what the role the Arab states can play ahead of a critical meeting with Iran next week. More


Pilot arrested over Argentina 'death flights'

Juan Alberto Poch, a budget airline pilot, is accused of flying planes from which junta threw opponents into sea

Spanish police have arrested an Argentinian military pilot accused of taking part in "death flights" in which hundreds of opponents of his country's military junta were thrown from planes into the sea.

Juan Alberto Poch, 57, was arrested on Monday at the controls of a Dutch holiday jet he was about to fly from Valencia to Amsterdam.

Poch is wanted by the courts in Argentina to answer allegations that he flew navy aircraft on the death flights between 1976 and 1983.

Transavia, a low-cost airline owned by KLM and Air France, has confirmed it employed the pilot, who also has Dutch nationality.

Spanish police said they arrested Poch during a 40-minute turnaround for the plane he was flying for Transavia. The company had been warned the arrest was pending and another pilot was on hand to fly the plane.

"He [Poch] was a regular pilot on the flights from Schipol airport [in Amsterdam] to Valencia," Spanish police said. "The officers who arrested him at Valencia's Manises airport made sure there were minimal problems for the passengers, with another pilot already arranged in advance." More

US charges Obama-fundraiser for HSBC, BoA, Citigroup fraud

Hassan Nemazee, a fund-raiser for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats, has been indicted for defrauding Bank of America, HSBC and Citigroup out of more than $290m in loan proceeds, US prosecutors said.

In August Mr Nemazee, head of a private equity firm and an Iranian American Political Action Committee board member, was indicted on one count of defrauding Citigroup's Citibank.

The new indictment on Monday, September 21, adds allegations that he defrauded two other banks, Bank of America and HSBC Bank USA, in a similar fashion by falsifying documents and signatures to purportedly show he had hundreds of millions worth of collateral.

The US Attorney in Manhattan and the FBI said he used the proceeds of his scheme to make donations to election campaigns of federal, state and local candidates, donations to political action committees and charities.

He bought property in Italy and paid for maintenance on two properties in New York.

His lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment. More

Exclusive: FBI may have destroyed files on Walter Cronkite

Officials with the Federal Bureau of Investigation said they may have destroyed files on legendary newsman Walter Cronkite in an October 2007 document purge.

Blogger and San Francisco-based gay activist Michael Petrelis filed a Freedom of Information Act request after the CBS anchorman's death in mid-July for access to FBI documents containing Walter Cronkite's name. The FBI restricts third-party access to information about individuals while they are still alive, but makes it possible for people to request copies of someone else's FBI files after they have passed away.

The FBI's August 25th response, however, indicated only that they may have had files on Cronkite, but if so, those files were likely destroyed roughly two years before Cronkite's death.

Arudou Debito on new IC cards for foreigners in Japan

Activist and journalist Arudou Debito of FRANCA Japan and Debito.org joins The Corbett Report to discuss new measures for tracking and controlling foreign residents in Japan. Foreign residents already have to surrender their biometric data to the government upon entering the country and are required by law to carry their foreigner id cards at all times. Now those cards are going to be implanted with IC chips, making it possible for foreigners to be tracked and traced at all times.

France raids Iraqi, Afghan asylum-seekers' camp

Riot police have raided a refugee camp in northern France, detaining nearly 300 asylum-seekers mostly from Afghanistan and Iraq during a dawn operation.

Hundreds of French riot police armed with flamethrowers, stun guns and tear gas moved in to raze a squalid Calais migrant camp, known as "the jungle", early Tuesday morning as part of a government plan to clear the area of illegal migrants.

Police say "the jungle" has become a haven for people-smuggling gangs and a no-go zone for locals.

Witnesses say there was one police officer for each migrant at the site and some jostling and scuffling between policemen.

Human rights activists rushed to the scene in an attempt to stop the raid.

"I think it's inhumane. They dragged people out of their tents. It isn't fair", an aid worker said.

US may have taken part in failed attempt to oust Chavez - Carter

The United States knew about an abortive coup against Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in 2002, and may even have taken part, former US president Jimmy Carter has told a Colombian newspaper.

"I think there is no doubt that in 2002, the United States had at the very least full knowledge about the coup, and could even have been directly involved," Carter said in an interview with El Tiempo published yesterday.

The former US leader said it is understandable that Chavez continues to blame the United States for the failed overthrow attempt.

The Venezuelan president, considered a bulwark of leftism in Latin America, was overthrown by a civilian-military junta for about 48 hours in April 2002, before returning to power. More


The Politics of Fear

Early this morning, nearly a million New Yorkers were stunned by the appearance of a "special edition" New York Post blaring headlines that their city could face deadly heat waves, extreme flooding, and other lethal effects of global warming within the next few decades. The most alarming thing about it: the news came from an official City report.

The Black Arts of Coal and Crude – Forgery and fakery send democracy to the pits
The big players in the energy business have plenty of ways of getting their message across. They fund fancy think tanks, make campaign contributions to sympathetic politicians, hire lobbyists, and buy ads.

But now, they’ve gone a step further. They’ve forged letters to members of Congress, using the letterhead of real grassroots citizen groups.

World leaders gather in New York and Pittsburgh with climate change high on agenda. UN and G20 offer venues for discussion of pressing climate change issues.


Ungratedul Iraqis

Then the zionist pig opened his mouth.

"I have never heard one word of gratitude from the Iraqi people about the 4,300 Americans who lost their lives," he exclaimed.

"We went to Iraq to try and free your people and now we're being blamed for sectarian violence," he said. "Don't blame us because that type of bloodlust exists in your society."

A defiant Mutlaq responded, "You were the ones who pushed your troops. We did not invite you."

It was at this point that an exasperated Rohrabacher threw up his hands and stormed out of the room.

It was only in the aftermath of Rohrabacher's tantrum that Rep. Bill Delahunt (D-MA) quietly stated that weapons of mass destruction, and not Iraqi freedom, were the reason the U.S. invaded Iraq. More


Obama ready to slash US nuclear arsenal

Pentagon told to map out radical cuts as president prepares to chair UN talks

Barack Obama has demanded the Pentagon conduct a radical review of US nuclear weapons doctrine to prepare the way for deep cuts in the country's arsenal, the Guardian can reveal.

'A multilateral process in which weapons states agree to radical disarmament'

Obama has rejected the Pentagon's first draft of the "nuclear posture review" as being too timid, and has called for a range of more far-reaching options consistent with his goal of eventually abolishing nuclear weapons altogether, according to European officials.

Those options include: More

The new system offers a real missile defence

Last Wednesday, President Barack Obama approved the recommendations of his entire national security team to deploy a stronger and more comprehensive missile defence system in Europe. This decision came after a lengthy and in-depth review of our assessment of the threat posed by Iran’s ballistic missile programme, and the technology that we have to confront it. And it is a decision that will leave America stronger, and more capable of defending our troops, our interests, and our allies.

With the president’s decision, we will deploy missile defence sooner than the previous programme, so that we will be able swiftly to counter the threat posed by Iran’s short and medium-range ballistic missiles.

We will deploy missile defence that is more comprehensive than the previous programme, with more interceptors in more places, and a better capacity to protect all of our friends and allies in the region. We will deploy technology that is actually proven so that we do not waste time or taxpayer money, and we will preserve the flexibility to adjust our approach to the threat as it evolves.

This is a stronger and smarter approach than the previous programme. It does what missile defence is actually supposed to do – it defends America and our allies. More


Revenge of the Hungarian J ew

Dominique de Villepin, the former French prime minister, lashed out at his rival Nicolas Sarkozy as he went on trial on charges of plotting to smear the president.

"I am here because of the will of one man, I am here because of the dogged determination of one man, Nicolas Sarkozy," he said before entering the courtroom.

"I will come out of this a free man and exonerated," he said, adding that "I know that truth will prevail."

Dubbed the trial of the decade, the judicial drama features a Who's Who cast of big names in politics, industry and intelligence circles, beginning with Sarkozy, who is a civil plaintiff in the case.

Mr de Villepin faces charges of conspiring to slander Sarkozy in 2004 when the pair were waging a fierce battle to win their right-wing party's nomination to succeed President Jacques Chirac. More


President Barack Obama's confusion over Afghanistan

Last week, we thought we knew what Barack Obama's Afghanistan strategy was; today, we do not have much of a clue.

His out-of-the-blue musings in his Sunday morning TV interviews that "until I'm satisfied we've got the right strategy, I'm not going to be sending some young man or woman over there", indicated an alarming funk at the White House. That it coincided with the leak of his Afghan commander General Stanley McChrystal's assessment, that without significant reinforcements the campaign "will likely result in failure", only adds to the sense of disarray. On the US's most pressing foreign-policy issue, there appears to be a divergence between the political and military leaderships.

Just a few months ago, President Obama was fruitlessly beseeching his Nato allies to show greater commitment to the Afghan mission. Now, it seems, his own commitment is wavering. More

'Israel is a peaceful country '

No Iran Strike Planned By Israel, Medvedev Says

"But my Israeli colleagues told me they were not planning to act in this way, and I trust them," Medvedev said.

It was not clear whether those referred to included Netanyahu. In a CNN clip played on Israeli TV and dubbed in English, Medvedev refers to Israeli President Shimon Peres as the source of the assurances.

"In one hour I will talk with the president of Israel, Mr. Peres, who when recently visiting me he told me a very important thing to all of us. He said Israel doesn't intend to deliver any strike against Iran. He said, 'We are a a peaceful country.'"

Netanyahu was absent from public view in Israel for most of the day on Sept. 7. His office said he had visited a secret security facility, but there was widespread speculation that he had gone to Russia – either to pressure Moscow not to deliver S-300 air-defense missiles to Iran or to inform the Kremlin of attack plans.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu came to Moscow. He did this under a closed regime, this was his decision. I don't understand what this was connected with, but sometimes our partners decide it this way," Medvedev said. He did not give details of the meeting.


Pentagon Shifts To SM-3 For European Missile Defense

The U.S. Defense Department has changed course in its plan to defend Europe and deployed forces from ballistic missile threats and will now pursue a more mobile and flexible architecture based on the Raytheon-built Standard Missile (SM)-3 interceptor, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said Sept. 17.

The new approach is based on revised U.S. intelligence estimates that indicate the Iranian ICBM threat has developed less quickly than anticipated, and European allies and U.S. forces deployed on the continent are more likely to face attacks of many more short- and intermediate-range ballistic missiles from Iran, Gates said during a media briefing at the Pentagon. U.S. missile defense technology has also advanced rapidly in the last several years and the ability to counter short- and medium-range missiles has been validated in testing, he said.

“Those who say we are scrapping missile defense in Europe are either misinformed or misrepresenting the reality of what we are doing,” Gates said. “The security of Europe has been a vital concern for my entire career.” More


NY Governor: I'm Running Whether Obama Likes It Or Not

Gov. David Paterson isn't scrapping his plans to run for the office he inherited 18 months ago, despite growing pressure from Washington and intervention by the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has contacted the governor and the White House over his concern.

"My plans for 2010 are to run for governor of the state of New York," Paterson said Sunday after serving as grand marshal to the African-American Day Parade in Manhattan. "I am running for office."

Paterson's remarks come amid mounting pressure from Washington and within New York to drop out because of his low poll numbers and concerns from other Democrats that he might hurt their chances in 2010. More

Report: IDF, U.S. military to simulate Iran missile strike on Israel

The Israel Defense Forces and the U.S. military will soon hold a training exercise in which they will simulate missile attacks on Israel from Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Gaza, the pan-Arab newspaper Asharq al-Awsat reported Sunday.

The exercise will be carried out as part of the ongoing maneuvers between Israel and the United States, the London-based paper said, which will reportedly be the broadest-ever this year.

According to the paper, the drill is also part of U.S. President Barack Obama's new missile defense plan, under which the Pentagon will initially deploy ships with missile interceptors instead of stationing missile defense systems in Eastern Europe. More

Inquiry Into CIA Practices Narrows

The Justice Department's review of detainee abuse by the CIA will focus on a very small number of cases, including at least one in which an Afghan prisoner died at a secret facility, according to two sources briefed on the matter.

On Friday, seven former CIA directors urged President Obama to end the inquiry, arguing that it would inhibit intelligence operations in the future and demoralize agency employees who believed they had been cleared by previous investigators.

"Attorney General [Eric] Holder's decision to re-open the criminal investigation creates an atmosphere of continuous jeopardy for those whose cases the Department of Justice had previously declined to prosecute," the directors, who served under Republican and Democratic presidents over the past 35 years, wrote in a letter.

Opposition to the probe has grown in the weeks since Holder ordered it, even as the outlines of the inquiry become more clear. More

Taliban leader: Brown and Obama are ‘deceiving’ the world over Afghan war

Reclusive Taliban leader Mullah Omar has issued a bullish statement vowing to defeat NATO troops in Afghanistan and telling Western people to question their leader’s justifications of the Afghan war.

In a statement posted in English on a Taliban website, shahamat.org, marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan and attributed to the reclusive Taliban leader, Omar said American and British offensives in recent months had been a failure.

He also said the Taliban had been tainted by the Western media’s ‘black propaganda’ that has incorrectly represented them as a threat to other countries and opponents of education or women’s rights.

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan calls on the public of the West not to be deceived by the assertions of Obama, who says the war in Afghanistan, is a war of necessity. The West does not have to wage this war. This war, in fact, started for clandestine motives under baseless reasons. The humanity, as a whole, suffers from its negative consequences. The global economic meltdown, instability, lack of trust and violation of international norms is the outcome of the baseless policies” the statement said.

Contractor Buys Weapons With Booze, Cigars

Mafia ‘was paid to sink ships carrying radioactive cargo’

About 30 ships containing radioactive and other poisonous refuse may have been scuttled off the Italian coast in an illegal Mafia operation to dispose of dangerous substances at sea.

Italy’s political opposition yesterday demanded an investigation after the wreck of a cargo vessel containing 120 barrels of potentially radioactive waste was found in waters off the southern province of Calabria. Environmental campaigners said that many more ships containing toxic and radioactive rubbish were believed to lie near by.

The discovery of the Cunsky, sunk in 1992, came after her location was revealed to anti-Mafia investigators by Francesco Fonti, a former member of the ’Ndrangheta, or Calabrian Mafia, who has become an informant. Mr Fonti claimed that the Cunsky contained radioactive material.

Mr Fonti has told police that he had used explosives to sink her and two other waste ships. The introduction of tighter European Union environmental legislation in the 1980s made illegal waste disposal a lucrative business for organised crime. More


Russian killings and kidnaps extend dirty war in Ingushetia

Like many in the southern Russian republic of Ingushetia, Petimat Albakavar lives in terror. "Nobody sleeps properly. We can't because we are listening to every sound, waiting for the police to knock at the door," she says.

On 10 July, Petimat's 26-year-old son, Batyr, was taken away at dawn by armed men claiming to be Ingush police. They appeared at the door and demanded to see the family's passports but refused to show any identification themselves. "As soon as they left I went to all the police stations, but I couldn't find my son. I filed complaints with the police and government officials, but nobody knew anything," says Petimat, her eyes weary with grief and fear.

"Ten days later we found a report on the internet that someone with my son's name, whom they described as a rebel leader, had been killed in the forest. It was Batyr. His passport was with him." More


Russia 'scraps plans' for missile deployment near Poland

Russia has scrapped a plan to deploy missiles in a region near Poland after President Barack Obama dumped the Bush-era plan for a US missile defense in Eastern Europe, a Russian deputy defence minister said today.

Vladimir Popovkin told Ekho Moskvy radio that Obama's move has made the deployment of Iskander short-range missiles in the Kaliningrad region unnecessary.

"Reason has prevailed over ambitions," Popovkin said. "Naturally, we will cancel countermeasures which Russia has planned in response, such as the (planned) deployment of Iskander missiles in the Kaliningrad region."

Russia staunchly opposed the Bush administration's plan to deploy 10 missile interceptors in Poland and a related radar in the Czech Republic and threatened to respond by deploying the Iskander missiles in its westernmost Baltic Sea region. More

India's nuclear power a 'myth'

India's status as a nuclear power has been described as a "myth" by the scientist who carried out its controversial hydrogen bomb tests in 1998.

He said the device had only "fizzled". The claims by the test director K Santhanam have provoked an outcry in India which treasures its nuclear status as a symbol of its power in Asia where it has been locked in an arms race with both Pakistan and China.

The Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh recently unveiled India's first nuclear submarine as a statement of its naval ambitions.

But according to K. Santhanam, who directed the secret detonations of five Shakt' nuclear devices at their nuclear test site at Pokhran, in the Rajasthan desert, the true test results were covered up and falsely hailed as a success by the Hindu nationalist BJP government.

At the time the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee declared: "India is now a nuclear weapons state. We have the capacity for a big bomb now." More


Brezinski Calls for Obama to Shoot Down Israeli Jets

Scrapping missile defense was the right thing to do, says former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski—but how the U.S. conveyed the decision to its Eastern European allies couldn’t have been worse.

President Obama’s decision Thursday to scrap the Bush administration’s missile-defense umbrella for Europe is being bemoaned by Republicans at home and top diplomats from Poland, which was slated to be the main staging ground for the missile system.

But Zbigniew Brzezinski—who as Jimmy Carter’s Polish-born national security adviser confronted problems in Iran, Afghanistan, and the Middle East—says that dropping the missile-shield program gives the U.S. more defense options in Europe. At 81, Brzezinski, an early and enthusiastic Obama supporter, is as opinionated as ever about what America is doing right and wrong when it comes to the key foreign-policy issues. More

We must stop S-300 delivery from every country that would want to defend itself from Israeli attack

Israel needs to make every effort to stop the S-300 missile defense system from reaching countries where the air force may need to fly, IAF commander Maj.-Gen. Ido Nehushtan has told The Jerusalem Post in an exclusive interview.

"The S-300 is a Russian-made surface-to-air missile system that is very advanced, with long ranges and many capabilities," Nehushtan told the Post in the interview, which appears in our Friday Magazine.

"We need to make every effort to stop this system from getting to places where the IAF needs to operate or may need to operate in the future," he said.

The S-300 is one of the most advanced multi-target antiaircraft missile systems in the world and has a reported ability to track up to 100 targets simultaneously while engaging up to 12 at the same time. It has a range of about 200 km. and can hit targets at altitudes of 90,000 feet.

While Russia and Iran signed a deal for the sale of the system several years ago, according to latest assessments in Israel, it has yet to be delivered.

Last week, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made a secret visit to Moscow for talks, which according to some news reports focused on the possible sale of the S-300 to Iran. More


President Urges Global Front against Israel

In a pre-sermon speech to Friday prayers worshippers on the International Qods Day, President Ahmadinejad maintained that countering Israel was a 'humanitarian principle'.

Millions of Iranians across the country took to the streets on Friday to mark the annual Qods Day march in solidarity with Palestinians, press tv reported.

Ahmadinejad urged all nations in particular the regional countries to stand up to Israel, arguing that the very existence of the regime has 'jeopardized' the whole region.

The existence of the Zionist regime amounts to an eternal insecurity in the region, President Ahmadinejad said, adding that the regional countries will never recognize Israel.

"The Zionist regime is the symbol of lies and deception," which was founded on 'colonialist' attitudes, President Ahmadinejad added.

The Iranian leader said Zionism seeks to build a global empire to dominate the whole world so it was in the national interests of any country to face up to the 'fake regime'.

The president then went on to question the story behind the Holocaust and urged a probe into it.

"If the Holocaust, as you claim, is true, why don't you allow a probe into the issue?" More


Study: War on terror weakened Obama's support

A study in the U.S. has shown Barack Obama's media image is on the decline. According to research by two American universities, the President's standing has seen a 16 percent decline.

“In his first 100 days, about 59 percent of his coverage was positive. The majority of the stories about the President were actually good. Now in his second 100 days, it is below 43 percent” – says Nikki Schwab, a reporter from the U.S. News and World Report magazine.

Talking about the role of media in the decline of Obama’s approval ratings, Nikki Schwab described it as a “chicken and egg” situation. “Approval ratings will be sliding and the media will obviously report on that, and than people will read these stories and, perhaps, they will think that the president isn’t doing a good job” – said Schwab.

Ex-CIA chiefs seek halt to interrogations probe

Seven former CIA directors asked President Barack Obama on Friday to quash a criminal probe of harsh interrogations of terror suspects during the Bush administration.

The CIA directors, who served both Democratic and Republican presidents and include three who worked under President George W. Bush, made their request in a letter Friday to the White House.

Attorney General Eric Holder announced last month that he was appointing an independent counsel to investigate possible incidents of abuse by CIA personnel during interrogations that went beyond guidelines imposed by the Bush administration. More


Obama Offered Deal to Russia in Secret Letter

President Obama sent a secret letter to Russia’s president last month suggesting that he would back off deploying a new missile defense system in Eastern Europe if Moscow would help stop Iran from developing long-range weapons, American officials said Monday.

The letter to President Dmitri A. Medvedev was hand-delivered in Moscow by top administration officials three weeks ago. It said the United States would not need to proceed with the interceptor system, which has been vehemently opposed by Russia since it was proposed by the Bush administration, if Iran halted any efforts to build nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles.

The officials who described the contents of the message requested anonymity because it has not been made public. While they said it did not offer a direct quid pro quo, the letter was intended to give Moscow an incentive to join the United States in a common front against Iran. More


Iran ready to pay for probe into Israeli nukes

Iran is prepared to allocate a budget for a probe into Israel's largely clandestine nuclear industry, Tehran's ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says.

Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh made the announcement in a statement delivered at the 53rd General Conference of the IAEA on Friday.

"In case the IAEA has limited financial resources for the inspection [of Israel's nuclear facilities]… the Iranian government is prepared to allocate the budget for the sake of global peace and welfare."

Calling Israel's nuclear capabilities a “potential threat” to global security, Soltaniyeh also expressed “grave concern” over Tel Aviv's refusal to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and thus denying the IAEA inspectors access to its atomic installations. More

Afghanistan: Where Empires Go to Die

On September 7 the Swedish aid agency Swedish Committee for Afghanistan reported that the previous week US soldiers raided one of its hospitals.

According to the director of the aid agency, Anders Fange, troops stormed through both the men's and women's wards, where they frantically searched for wounded Taliban fighters.

Soldiers demanded that hospital administrators inform the military of any incoming patients who might be insurgents, after which the military would then decide if said patients would be admitted or not. Fange called the incident "not only a clear violation of globally recognized humanitarian principles about the sanctity of health facilities and staff in areas of conflict, but also a clear breach of the civil-military agreement" between nongovernmental organizations and international forces.

Us moves missile system to Israel

Deputy US army chief, Gen. James Cartwright and defense secretary Robert Gates amplified President Barack Obama's statement on the US missile shield in East Europe in Washington Thursday, Sept. 17, by announcing that a new and better anti-missile missile system would be deployed in Israel and the Caucasus.

DEBKAfile discloses exclusively that the site would be a Russian military base in Azerbaijan. Referring to the Israeli component, he said: "It is already working perfectly."

DEBKAfile's military sources disclose he was referring to the advanced American FBX-T radar system deployed last year in Israel's Negev base at Nevatim, which is capable of tracking a missile launched from the Persian Gulf, the Middle East and beyond. The system, product of Raytheon, is mobile and capable of detecting incoming bodies the size of a baseball from a distance of 4,700 km, determining its speed and angle of flight and transmitting the data to an interceptor at any point on earth.

DEBKAfile reported earlier Thursday:

The Obama administration's decision to shelve the plan to install US missile interceptors and radar systems in Poland and the Czech Republic was released Thursday, Sept. 17. The shield was promoted by the Bush administration in the face of strong Russian opposition for the purpose of shielding Europe from long-range Iranian ballistic missile attack. More

Overriding Western objections, a 150-nation nuclear conference on Friday passed a resolution directly criticizing Israel and its atomic program for the first time in 18 years. Iran hailed the vote as a "glorious moment."

The result was a setback not only for Israel but also for the United States and other backers of the Jewish state, which had lobbied for 18 years of past practice - debate on the issue without a vote. It also reflected building tensions between Israel and its backers and Islamic nations, backed by developing countries. More

While other top Israeli officials dismissed the UN’s Gaza War Crimes report with a combination of the usual accusations of personal bias by South African Judge Richard Goldstone and claims of outright anti-semitism behind the assessment of Israel’s January invasion of the Gaza Strip, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had a surprisingly frank response.

The hawkish Israeli Prime Minister cautioned that world leaders had better publicly reject the report, because they might face similar accusations of war crimes for their behavior in their assorted wars as well. More

Nasrallah: We'll never recognize Israel

The leader of Lebanon's Hizbullah vowed on Friday that he will never recognize Israel and that no Arab state has the right to do so either.

"No one has the right to recognize this entity (Israel) or approve its legitimacy," the black-turbaned Nasrallah said in a speech broadcast through a giant screen from a secret location to thousands of supporters who gathered in the group's stronghold south of Beirut.

Nasrallah has been hiding since the Second Lebanon War almost continuously, for fear Israel might liquidate him if he shows up in public. More

One more proof to Never Ever Trust Russia

[As expected] President Medvedev gave the first hint yesterday that Russia was prepared to perform a significant policy U-turn and support US moves for sanctions against Iran.

Speaking in Moscow, the Russian leader went out of his way to be more conciliatory with the West before his visit this month to the US where he will attend the United Nations General Assembly meeting in New York and the G20 summit of economic powers in Pittsburgh. A key issue on the agenda will be efforts by America, Britain and France to impose economic sanctions against Tehran if the regime does not agree to curb its nuclear programme. More
