Amnesty International Stokes Syrian War | Investig'Action

Amnesty International Stokes Syrian War | Investig'Action | Global politics | Scoop.it
The West’s vast propaganda machine has pulled in many formerly respectable groups, such as Amnesty International, which just released a dubious “human rights” report aimed at stoking the war in Syria, reports Rick Sterling.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Amnesty International (AI) has done some good investigations and reports over the years, which has won the group widespread support. However, less well recognized, Amnesty International has also carried out faulty investigations with bloody and disastrous consequences. One prominent example is in Iraq, where AI “corroborated” the false story that Iraqi soldiers were stealing incubators from Kuwait, leaving babies to die on the cold floor. The deception was planned and carried out in Washington to influence the U.S. public and Congress. A more recent example is from 2011 where false accusations were being made about Libya and Muammar Gaddafi as Western and Gulf powers sought to overthrow his government. AI leaders joined the campaign claiming that Gaddafi was using “mercenaries” to threaten and kill peacefully protesting civilians. The propaganda was successful in muting criticism of what became an invasion and “regime change.” - See more at: http://www.investigaction.net/en/amnesty-international-stokes-syrian-war/#sthash.dxiW1TPN.dpuf

The U.S. Carried Out Regime Change In Syria In 1949 ... and Tried Again In 1957, 1986, 1991 and 2011-Today

Enrique Ferro's insight:
As early as 1949, this newly independent Arab republic was an important staging ground for the CIA’s earliest experiments in covert action. The CIA secretly encouraged a right-wing military coup in 1949. The reason the U.S. initiated the coup? Little explains: In late 1945, the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO) announced plans to construct the Trans-Arabian Pipe Line (TAPLINE) from Saudi Arabia to the Mediterra- nean. With U.S. help, ARAMCO secured rights-of-way from Lebanon, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. The Syrian right-of-way was stalled in parliament. In other words, Syria was the sole holdout for the lucrative oil pipeline.

Enrique Ferro's insight:
In December 2016, President Obama reflected on the development in a speech that he delivered to U.S. soldiers at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida. “By the time I took office, the United States had been at war for seven years,” Obama said. By continuing that war, “I will become the first president of the United States to serve two full terms during a time of war.”

Enrique Ferro's insight:
President Trump renewed his attacks on the media by again calling news outlets “the enemy of the people” at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington DC. "I'm against the people that make up stories and make up sources," he told his audience. "They shouldn't be allowed to use sources unless they use somebody's name. Let their name be put out there."

Moscow’s Peace Efforts Are Sabotaged as Washington Aims to Make War With Russia Inevitable

Moscow’s Peace Efforts Are Sabotaged as Washington Aims to Make War With Russia Inevitable | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russian efforts to broker peace in Syria and Ukraine are now in tatters, as Washington revs up its war rhetoric and throws caution to the wind. They want war, and they just might get it.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Even the abstract concept of "talking" to the Russians is now considered an act of treason. Just ask Michael Flynn. When Tillerson had his first meeting with Lavrov in Bonn, he very anxiously shut out the press, in direct affront to normal protocol. No American official wants to be caught on camera talking with a Russian. As a general observation, it's a very bad time to be alive if you're a Russian diplomat.

Our sons-of-bitches: western media and the Syrian rebels | Investig'Action

Our sons-of-bitches: western media and the Syrian rebels | Investig'Action | Global politics | Scoop.it
“He may be a son-of-a-bitch, but he's our son-of-a-bitch” - this is what U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt is rumoured to have once said about Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza. We examine how the western media, always so full of editorials and columns praising western values (whatever those may be), have covered the Syrian opposition during the Syrian war, focusing on three groups in particular. A closer look at the falsehoods that have been peddled, the inconvenient truths that were left unsaid, and the contradictions that emerged due to low journalistic standards, reveal the shameless and spineless support for western imperialism that has become the norm.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
“[…] the US government outsourced its war against the Syrian government to Al Qaeda, and Americans have no idea, because corporate media continue to promote lies about Obama’s so-called inaction.” - See more at: http://www.investigaction.net/en/our-sons-of-bitches-western-media-and-the-syrian-rebels/#sthash.M9EI8fhY.dpuf

 Did Trump’s New Anti-Drug Policy Prompt the CIA to Move Against Him? :  Information Clearing House - ICH

I do not mean to suggest that CIA officers themselves smuggle drugs into the US. The actual smuggling is almost always done by professional traffickers who are treated as national security assets because they also provide various kinds of support for covert CIA operations. In return, the “blessed” traffickers are allowed to ply their illicit trade without interference from US Customs, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), even local police. The CIA oversees the trade which is largely about market share, and also receives a cut of the action, which it uses to fund black-budget operations. Competitors who refuse to cooperate are fair game, and are periodically rounded up and prosecuted to show that the government is seriously waging the war on drugs. Of course, despite the occasional high profile arrests and convictions, somehow the drugs are always readily available on the street. The supply seldom fails, an inconvenient truth never mentioned by the media nor acknowledged by government officials.
Enrique Ferro's insight:
If Trump’s new anti-drug-trafficking policy is carried out it will place drug enforcement agencies in direct opposition to CIA officers who for many years have “managed” the flow of cocaine and heroin into the United States. In fact, “dismantling the transnational criminal organizations” responsible for the drug trade will ultimately require nothing less than the dismantling of the CIA itself. The wording of Trump’s executive orders leaves no doubt about his intent. The president is not proposing half measures. Officials at the CIA no doubt grasped the significance of this at a glance, and concluded correctly that the president himself, every bit as much as his new executive orders, must henceforth be viewed as a threat to the Agency’s power and covert prerogatives. The scary part, from the CIA standpoint, is that Trump really means it. This is in sharp contrast with Ronald Reagan, whose 1980s-era war on drugs was nothing but a charade. One can well imagine the brief but intense moment of panic at Langley when CIA officials first learned about the orders. Their signing by Trump created an immediate compelling reason for the CIA to move against the president, and to do so without delay. This, very likely, explains the classified leak on February 9th about Gen. Flynn.

Liberals Beware: Lie Down With Dogs, Get Up With Fleas

Liberals Beware:  Lie Down With Dogs, Get Up With Fleas | Global politics | Scoop.it
Should Adolph Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, have been protected under the first amendment? How about the New York Times?

Are there any similarities between Goebbels relentless attempts to lead the German people to war and the Times publications preceding the war in Iraq? (RE: WMD, mobile weapons labs, yellowcake uranium, curveball, aluminum tubes etc) Is there a case for prosecution here or is the comparison just too far fetched to even consider?
Enrique Ferro's insight:
What’s more interesting is the fact that Obama decided to impose the new sanctions on Russia in late December (after Trump had already been elected) knowing that Trump probably wouldn’t support the sanctions. That seems strange, don’t you think? Why would Obama do something so disrespectful at the eleventh hour unless he had something else up his sleeve? Was Obama setting a trap to get rid of the man who was the driving-force behind better relations with Russia? (Flynn)
