US Uses Iraq Consulate to Smuggle Arms to Iran

Amazing the death American taxpayer money can buy while thousands starve on U.S. streets and tens of millions are spent on bogus U.S. "elections"

The US Consulate in the Iraqi city of Basra has reportedly prepared a shipment of weapons to smuggle for a terrorist cell operating inside Iran.


Obama's legacy in Iraq
The cargo, including light and heavy guns, was shipped into Iraq's southern city of Basra through the Turkish soil, according to an informed security source, who asked not to be identified.

The US mission in the city used its diplomatic immunity to take the shipment into the consulate's building without bothering to answer to Iraqi security officials.

The United States is said to have organized an Arab group inside the consulate to facilitate the trafficking of arms to be used against Iran.

The arms are expected to end up in the hands of the Khalq-e Arab terrorist group, operating in the country's southwestern province of Khuzestan.

Afghanistan: Up to 15 Suicide Bombers Kill Dozens of Civilians

Obama and his CIA child murderers desperate to prove to Afghans they are still "needed" 
 
World News
04/15/2012

A wave of suicide attacks killed at least 46 people in a bloody day for Afghanistan yesterday, with as many as 15 bombers striking in provinces in the south-west and north of the country.


Fourteen of those bombers were involved in explosions that killed 36 people in the south-western province of Nimroz, which has been largely peaceful in recent years. Not all of the attackers succeeded in detonating their bombs.

Elsewhere, a motorcycle bomber struck in the early evening in the northern province of Kunduz as shoppers were rushing home for the meal ending the daily fast for Ramadan.

In Nimroz, where 110 people were wounded, the head of the provincial health department, Noor Ahmad Shirzada, said most of the dead and injured were civilians.

Hillary Clinton Dresses Down Interviewer Over Question About Her Clothes

"The Royal Hag" goes ballistic over simple question; she's lucky reporter didn't ask her about her "new and improved" face - obvious botox or face lift; story notable only for her disdain for the "peasants" and their pesky questions

An excerpt of a 2010 interview with Hillary Clinton in Kyrgyzstan is getting a second look online over her sharp response to a moderator's question about the U.S. secretary of state's fashion sense:


MODERATOR 1: OK. Which designers do you prefer?

SECRETARY CLINTON: What designers of clothes?

MODERATOR 1: Yes.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Would you ever ask a man that question? (Laughter.) (Applause.)

MODERATOR 1: Probably not. Probably not. (Applause.)



The old Hag, chicken-neck well covered
The exchange, posted on Tuesday by Boston Review, has been shared thousands of times on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook—garnering Clinton plenty of admiration among women.

"I'm SO GLAD IT'S IN STYLE to respond this way again," Lizzie Skurnik wrote on Facebook.

"The tragedy is that it ever went out of style," Jens Bekman replied.


To be fair, the town hall-style interview—organized by the American University in Central Asia and U.S. Embassy in Kyrgyzstan and broadcast on public television there—was mostly substantive. Clinton was asked about her meeting with the Kyrgyzstan president, the turbulent political and socioeconomic climate, foreign and domestic policy, and the United States' delicate relationship with Russia.


New and Improved Hag after trip to body chop-shop
And the designer clothes question, which came at the end of the interview, was prefaced by the moderator as "silly."

"Oh, I've never been asked a silly question in my entire life," Clinton said.

WAYNE MADSEN : The Bush-Obama Double Cross of Saddam and Assad

Ghadaffi also found out quickly what it means to be Obama's "friend"

Wayne Madsen Report
By Wayne Madsen
08/14/2012

WMR has learned from U.S. military intelligence sources that U.S. ground troops will be deployed to Syria in two weeks to help secure chemical weapons that were transported from Iraq to Syria in the months prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.


A veteran military intelligence agent confirmed that a deal was struck between the Bush administration and Saddam Hussein that permitted Saddam Hussein's intelligence service, the Mukhabarat, as well as members of the Republican Guard and Bashar al-Assad's cousin, Assif Shokat -- the chief executive officer of Bhaha -- a Syrian import-export firm, to secretly transport by flat-bed trucks its chemical weapons, including deadly VX nerve gas, to the heavily-fortified al-Safir chemical weapons storage complex southeast of Aleppo. To sweeten the deal for Assad, the trucks also transported a number of Iraqi gold bars for Assad's coffers. The Bush administration promised Saddam that as long as all the chemical weapons were placed under the supervision of Bashar al-Assad's government, which was then an intelligence partner of the CIA for intelligence sharing and the rendition and torture program the Bush administration would refrain from invading Iraq.


Saddam's reward for "hanging" with Rumsfeld
However, the actual goal of the Bush administration was to keep the U.S.-supplied VX and its weapons casings from falling into the hands of United Nations inspectors and even U.S. military and intelligence officers after the U.S. invasion of Iraq. The Bush administration then relied on the Assad government to keep the weapons and associated equipment under lock and key to hide the involvement of the Reagan and George H W Bush administrations in supplying the material to Saddam Hussein.

After the transfer of the material to Syria, Saddam realized that he had been double crossed by the Bush administration and he then made arrangement for all the microfiche files with the documents on the chemical weapons transfers from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, and other western countries to be gathered up in a central repository in Baghdad and be transferred to a neutral party to disseminate to the world's media.


Little Georgie claims Saddam tried to whack his daddy, invades Iraq
In late 2002, this editor received an offer through a British intermediary close to the Saddam Hussein government to collect copies of the weapons of mass destruction files in Baghdad and transport them by land to Jordan and then back to the United States to make them public. Because of the danger involved in the proposed file transfer, I did not take up the offer because of the tremendous personal risk involved. The files, which included purchase orders, canceled checks, bank statements, bills of lading, customs documents, and other files showed the involvement of Phillips Petroleum, which merged with Conoco in August 2002; a Spanish and French firm in which the Carlyle Group was heavily invested; Halliburton; and U.S. banks in facilitating the sale of VX, pre-cursor materials, and storage and mixing equipment for chemical weapons development to Iraq.

When Saddam and the Mukhabarat realized that Iraq had been double crossed by the Bush administration and they were unable to trasnfer the weapons files to the Western media, they sank the original files in Lake Tharthar, which is 75 miles north of Baghdad. The operation was code-named the "Al Alma Project." Later attempts by the U.S. military, CIA, and FBI to recover the files proved unsuccessful.


How quickly Americans forget:  Donald Rumsfeld and Saddam
The 120,000-page weapons declaration submitted to the United Nations on December 7, 2002, did not contain the "smoking gun" documents linking the Iraqi weapons program to the United States, Britain, and France because the three countries, which received unedited copies of the declaration as permanent members of the Security Council, were not trusted by Iraq to release the files in full. The other two permanent members that received the unedited declaration, Russia and China, were concerned that their own weapons exports to Iraq would be made public. Russia was especially concerned that the files contained evidence of the Soviet Communist Party's total bankrolling of the Iraqi Communist Party in the 1980s. For Saddam, the solution was simple: he had the entire WMD files cache sunk in the lake in the hope that it might be recovered intact by a trusted party at a later date and be exposed to the world.

Iraq maintained that the United States would tamper with the weapons declaration, titled "A Currently Accurate, Full and Complete Declaration plus supporting documents." On December 14, 2002, The Economist reported on another set of Iraqi weapons documents when it stated that the Iraqis were not concerned about American document tampering because "another full set exists."

Somewhere under Iraq's Lake Tharthar exist microfiche records that implicate the Bush and Obama administrations in covering up illegal smuggling of chemical weapons Iraq and, subsequently, into Syria.

Syria, a member of the Security Council, voted for UN Security Council resolution 1441, which demanded that Iraq turn over to the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC), headed by Hans Blix, all documents on Iraq's WMD program. Syria's vote for the resolution provided cover for its physical possession of the Iraqi chemical WMDs in Syria. In a March 7, 2003 report to the UN Security Council, Blix appeared to have discovered that a large number of documents were not handed over by Saddam to his UNMOVIC team. Blix wrote, "Iraq, with a highly developed administrative system, should be able to provide more documentary evidence about its proscribed weapons programmes. Only a few new such documents have come to light so far and been handed over since we began inspections." Blix's statement came only 13 days before the U.S. invasion and the entire WMD files cache had already been sunk in Lake Tharthar.

Saddam Hussein's chief procurement official and banker, Sa'ad Hassan Ali, also known as Abu Seger, confirmed the Al Alma Project to U.S. military intelligence officers after the invasion of Iraq and his detention. As WMR reported in November 2005, Abu Seger, who suffered from repeated beatings by U.S. torturers, died in captivity the day after his wife delivered his blood pressure medicine to the black marble palace where he was being held in Tikrit. U.S. interrogators were unable to get Abu Seger to provide the exact coordinates where the WMD files cache was sunk in Lake Tharthar.

Although the WMD data files have not been recovered by the United States, the physical evidence remains in the Al-Safir facility southeast of Aleppo. The U.S. troops who will be deployed into Syria in two weeks will have the job of recovering the physical evidence in what represents a second double cross, this time against Bashar al-Assad. Just as in Iraq, U.S. troops in Syria, will, once again, risk their lives to cover up the involvement of the United States in providing chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein. The planned U.S. military operation in Syria will have the primary focus of protecting the illegal activities of the Bush family, Carlyle Group, the CIA, and Dick Cheney's Halliburton in providing chemical weapons, pre-cursor chemicals, and equipment, including Army dark green converted P-400 bomb canisters with federal General Services Administration (GSA) numbers for aerial dispersal and gel cell batteries for Saddam Hussein's WMD armory.

Fukushima 'Caused Mutant Butterflies' - Al Jazeera Withheld, Continues to Refuse to Release Real SAT Radiation Numbers at Time of Catastrophe - NOAA Told by Obama Criminal Regime to Cease Reporting or BE SHUT DOWN

AJ and it's CIA masters contribute to radiation deaths worldwide

Genetic mutations have been found in three generations of butterflies from near Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, scientists said Tuesday, raising fears radiation could affect other species. 


AJ's weathergirl CIA hack Steff Gaulter
Around 12 percent of pale grass blue butterflies that were exposed to nuclear fallout as larvae immediately after the tsunami-sparked disaster had abnormalities, including smaller wings and damaged eyes, researchers said.

The insects were mated in a laboratory well outside the fallout zone and 18 percent of their offspring displayed similar problems, said Joji Otaki, associate professor at Ryukyu University in Okinawa, southwestern Japan.

That figure rose to 34 percent in the third generation of butterflies, he said, even though one parent from each coupling was from an unaffected population.

The researchers also collected another 240 butterflies in Fukushima in September last year, six months after the disaster. Abnormalities were recorded in 52 percent of their offspring, which was "a dominantly high ratio", Otaki told AFP.

Otaki said the high ratio could result from both external and internal exposure to radiation, from the atmosphere and in contaminated foodstuffs.

The results of the study were published in Scientific Reports, an online research journal from the publishers of Nature.


Otaki later carried out a comparison test in Okinawa exposing unaffected butterflies to low levels of radiation, with the results showing similar rates of abnormality, he said.

"We have reached the firm conclusion that radiation released from the Fukushima Daiichi plant damaged the genes of the butterflies," Otaki said.

The quake-sparked tsunami of March 2011 knocked out cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, causing three reactors to go into meltdown in the world's worst atomic disaster for 25 years.

The findings will raise fears over the long-term effects of the leaks on people who were exposed in the days and weeks after the accident, as radiation spread over a large area and forced thousands to evacuate.

There are claims that the effects of nuclear exposure have been observed on successive generations of descendants of people living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki when the US dropped atomic bombs in the final days of World War II.


Real fallout numbers have never been released
But Otaki warned it was too soon to jump to conclusions, saying his team's results on the Fukushima butterflies could not be directly applied to other species, including humans.

He added he and his colleagues would conduct follow-up studies including similar tests on other animals.

Kunikazu Noguchi, associate professor in radiological protection at Nihon University School of Dentistry, also said more data was needed to determine the impact of the Fukushima accident on animals in general.

"This is just one study," Noguchi said. "We need more studies to verify the entire picture of the impact on animals."

Researchers and medical doctors have so far denied that the accident at Fukushima would cause an elevated incidence of cancer or leukaemia, diseases that are often associated with radiation exposure.

But they also noted that long-term medical examination is needed especially due to concerns over thyroid cancer among young people -- a particular problem for people following the Chernobyl catastrophe.


NOAA was closest off the mark, was told early on to cease and desist by Obama criminal regime or be shut down

"There are a number of unknown factors surrounding the genetic impact of radiation," said Makoto Yamada, a medical doctor who examines Fukushima residents. "We still cannot 100 percent deny that the impact may come out in the future."

Associate professor Noguchi said: "The case of Fukushima plant workers is a different story. Some of them have already topped exposure limits. It is necessary to strictly monitor them to see if there is any impact."

No one is officially recorded as having died as a direct result of the Fukushima disaster, but many who fled the area and those who remain, including workers decommissioning the crippled plant, worry about the long-term effects.

Scientists have warned it could be decades before it is safe for some people to return to their homes.

"Even if there is no impact now, we have to live with fear," said Sachiko Sato, a mother of two, who temporarily fled from Fukushima. "And concerns will be handed down to my children and grandchildren."
