Journalist Who Exposed How Rebels Were Behind August 21st Syria Chemical Weapons Attack Faces Intimidation

As there are no more "professional ethics" now in any media thanks to the international Rovian/Machiavellian media environment - abetted and propagated by the so-called "mainstream media" coward terrorists - there is no longer any rationale for journalists not to arm ourselves as we have in past wars:  This is and has been a global war on journalists and we need to take this war now to the enemy using the same tactics and weapons they use on us; we must now play by our own rules in order to survive to report

Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak has been threatened over her involvement in a story which exposed how Syrian rebels were responsible for the August 21st chemical weapons attack after being handed the weapons by Saudi intelligence agents.


It's high time for journalists to reciprocate the violence and terror tactics of governments and their hired thugs
On August 29th, Mint Press News published an article co-authored by Gavlak which detailed how FSA militants in Ghouta admitted to reporter Yahya Ababneh that they were behind the August 21st chemical weapons incident, which the United States blamed on President Bashar Al-Assad, having mishandled chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.

Although Gavlak did not collaborate on the story in her capacity as an AP correspondent, according to Mint Press News executive director Mnar Muhawesh, within 48 hours Gavlak received threats to “end her career” if she didn’t disassociate herself from the article.

The threats came from a third party who was most likely acting on behalf of Saudi Intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan, according to Gavlak. Bandar is named in the article as having ordered the transfer of chemical weapons to Syrian rebels in Ghouta.


These days are OVER:  Journalists are completely justified in picking up weapons, killing attackers that threaten their lives and the lives of their staff
Gavlak has now been “indefinitely suspended” by the Associated Press with no public explanation from the news agency. It appears that the Saudi threats to “end her career” worked. 


Gavlak also “confirmed with several colleagues and Jordanian government officials that the Saudis have been supplying rebels with chemical weapons,” according to Muhawesh.

Note that Gavlak was not threatened with a defamation lawsuit on the basis that her story was inaccurate, she was told that her career would be finished. The story’s entire credibility rests on Gavlak being an accredited AP journalist who has also worked for NPR and the BBC, which is why the people behind the threats were so insistent that Gavlak distance herself from the report.


Government/corporate owned "mainstream media" death pimps that shill for and cause bogus wars and "crises" will be held individually and collectively responsible and accountable for their crimes against humanity
The original Mint Press News article was published just two days before the United States was widely expected to launch cruise missile attacks on Syria, until the White House backed out at the last minute and President Obama announced he would seek congressional authorization.

“On August 30th, Dale asked MintPress to remove her name completely from the byline because she stated that her career and reputation was at risk. She continued to say that these third parties were demanding her to disassociate herself from the article or these parties would end her career,” writes Muhawesh, adding that despite the threats, he decided to keep her name attached to the report.

Gavlak’s colleague Yahya Ababneh, who personally interviewed the rebels in Ghouta, was also threatened.

“Yahya has recently notified me that the Saudi embassy contacted him and threatened to end his career if he did a follow up story on who carried out the most recent chemical weapons attack and demanded that he stop doing media interviews in regards to the subject,” writes Muhawesh.

 
It is the "mainstream media" scum spies that infest Al Jazeera and those like them that are responsible for legitimate independent journalists being targeted and killed
Dale Gavlak, Yahya Ababneh, and Mint Press News should be applauded for their ethical stance in upholding journalistic integrity by refusing to back down in the face of apparent threats from the habitually corrupt Saudi government.

In revealing the threats, Gavlak and Ababneh have not only thrown a fresh spotlight on the thuggish behavior of governments like Saudi Arabia who are arming Al-Qaeda led rebels in Syria, but have also bolstered the credibility of their original story, which could very well have helped prevent an attack on Syria.

The fact that Saudi Arabia is so desperate for Gavlak to distance herself from the story that it has resorted to underhanded threats, instead of openly denying the veracity of the report, suggests that the original article is indeed accurate and that Saudi Arabia is arming the Syrian rebels with chemical weapons.

It also strongly indicates that the entire basis for US aggression towards Syria, currently playing out in the form of demands for Syria to relinquish its chemical weapons arsenal, is based on the completely fraudulent pretext that Assad ordered the August 21st chemical weapons attack, a premise that has already been discredited by German intelligence findings.

Humankind’s Most Dangerous Moment : Fukushima Fuel Pool At Unit 4 - “This is an Issue of Human Survival”

The 5th Estate outlined this very scenario, along with nuclear experts that were ignored or insulted within DAYS OF THE TSUNAMI:  Anyone traveling to Japan now is patently insane;  the world needs to step in and invade Japan if necessary to stop this madness and then execute Edano, Abe and the rest of the criminal Japanese government, "mainstream media" shills and TEPCO swine that caused this worldwide catastrophe

We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis. 
Fukushima cores and fuel-rod storage pools continue to melt down as Japanese goverment and TEPCO now release highly radioactive water into the Pacific ocean
There is no excuse for not acting. All the resources our species can muster must be focussed on the fuel pool at Fukushima Unit 4.

Fukushima’s owner, Tokyo Electric (Tepco), says that within as few as 60 days it may begin trying to remove more than 1300 spent fuel rods from a badly damaged pool perched 100 feet in the air. The pool rests on a badly damaged building that is tilting, sinking and could easily come down in the next earthquake, if not on its own.

Some 400 tons of fuel in that pool could spew out more than 15,000 times as much radiation as was released at Hiroshima.

The one thing certain about this crisis is that Tepco does not have the scientific, engineering or financial resources to handle it. Nor does the Japanese government. The situation demands a coordinated worldwide effort of the best scientists and engineers our species can muster.

Why is this so serious? 
Radioactive fallout from Fukushima meltdowns already circulating and poisoning the world
We already know that thousands of tons of heavily contaminated water are pouring through the Fukushima site, carrying a devil’s brew of long-lived poisonous isotopes into the Pacific. Tuna irradiated with fallout traceable to Fukushima have already been caught off the coast of California. We can expect far worse.

Tepco continues to pour more water onto the proximate site of three melted reactor cores it must somehow keep cool.Steam plumes indicate fission may still be going on somewhere underground. But nobody knows exactly where those cores actually are.

Much of that irradiated water now sits in roughly a thousand huge but fragile tanks that have been quickly assembled and strewn around the site. Many are already leaking. All could shatter in the next earthquake, releasing thousands of tons of permanent poisons into the Pacific.

The water flowing through the site is also undermining the remnant structures at Fukushima, including the one supporting the fuel pool at Unit Four. 
Reports on the real situation from brave news organizations like RT were downplayed, ignored by "mainstream media" Japanese government/TEPCO shills
More than 6,000 fuel assemblies now sit in a common pool just 50 meters from Unit Four. Some contain plutonium. The pool has no containment over it. It’s vulnerable to loss of coolant, the collapse of a nearby building, another earthquake, another tsunami and more.

Overall, more than 11,000 fuel assemblies are scattered around the Fukushima site. According to long-time expert and former Department of Energy official Robert Alvarez, there is more than 85 times as much lethal cesium on site as was released at Chernobyl.

Radioactive hot spots continue to be found around Japan. There are indications of heightened rates of thyroid damage among local children.

The immediate bottom line is that those fuel rods must somehow come safely out of the Unit Four fuel pool as soon as possible.
Japanese government shill Yukio Edano will be held responsible for this apocalypse and executed by irradiated Japanese mobs
Just prior to the 3/11/11 earthquake and tsunami that shattered the Fukushima site, the core of Unit Four was removed for routine maintenance and refueling. Like some two dozen reactors in the US and too many more around the world, the General Electric-designed pool into which that core now sits is 100 feet in the air.

Spent fuel must somehow be kept under water. It’s clad in zirconium alloy which will spontaneously ignite when exposed to air. Long used in flash bulbs for cameras, zirconium burns with an extremely bright hot flame.

Each uncovered rod emits enough radiation to kill someone standing nearby in a matter of minutes. A conflagration could force all personnel to flee the site and render electronic machinery unworkable.

According to Arnie Gundersen, a nuclear engineer with forty years in an industry for which he once manufactured fuel rods, the ones in the Unit 4 core are bent, damaged and embrittled to the point of crumbling. Cameras have shown troubling quantities of debris in the fuel pool, which itself is damaged.

The engineering and scientific barriers to emptying the Unit Four fuel pool are unique and daunting, says Gundersen. But it must be done to 100% perfection. 
Abe will be thrown into a Fukushima rod pool to personally test his ludicrous, fantasy contention that "smiling" will "beat radiation"
Should the attempt fail, the rods could be exposed to air and catch fire, releasing horrific quantities of radiation into the atmosphere. The pool could come crashing to the ground, dumping the rods together into a pile that could fission and possibly explode. The resulting radioactive cloud would threaten the health and safety of all us.

Chernobyl’s first 1986 fallout reached California within ten days. Fukushima’s in 2011 arrived in less than a week. A new fuel fire at Unit 4 would pour out a continuous stream of lethal radioactive poisons for centuries.

Former Ambassador Mitsuhei Murata says full-scale releases from Fukushima “would destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is not rocket science, nor does it connect to the pugilistic debate over nuclear power plants. This is an issue of human survival.” 
All radioactive contaminated water from Fukushima must be sent inland for containment regardless of loss of life or Japanese environmental destruction, and Japan must be nuked if it fails or refuses to comply - Fukushima radiation must not be allowed to poison the rest of the world and world citizens must demand and FORCE the dismantling of ALL NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

Neither Tokyo Electric nor the government of Japan can go this alone. There is no excuse for deploying anything less than a coordinated team of the planet’s best scientists and engineers.

We have two months or less to act.

For now, we are petitioning the United Nations and President Obama to mobilize the global scientific and engineering community to take charge at Fukushima and the job of moving these fuel rods to safety.

If you have a better idea, please follow it. But do something and do it now.

The clock is ticking. The hand of global nuclear disaster is painfully close to midnight.Harvey Wasserman is Senior Editor of the Columbus Free Press and Free Press. He edits Nuke Free.

U.S. Leaker Snowden 'Wears Disguise, In Danger' : Lawyer

Snowden's lawyer needs to remind the spies at the U.S. Embassy Moscow that Snowden has every right under Russian law to KILL ANY CIA SPY that attempts to do him harm, or any other U.S. scum merc on Russian soil that they can be made real dead, real fast should they try to harm Snowden; CIA swine are all targets now, past and present, worldwide and will be ERADICATED

PRESS TV
09/23/2013


Former US intelligence analyst Edward Snowden is in such danger that he cannot even visit or talk to his family members, his lawyer Anatoly Kucherena says.


Snowden need to shoot first, ask questions later
Kucherena, who has become Snowden’s unofficial spokesman, says Snowden is living under guard and has avoided any media contacts since arriving in Russia on a Hong Kong flight in June, AFP reports.

"I am his only link with the outside world at the moment. Even his contacts with his parents are carried out through me," he said in an interview published in Itogi weekly magazine.

Kucherena did not explain what kind of danger his client was facing, but many US officials have refused to rule out the possibility of snatching the whistleblower and returning him to the United States to face criminal prosecution.

The lawyer said Snowden does come outside of his secret residence in Russia, but only in disguise.

"He would walk past you and you wouldn't recognize him," he told Itogi. "It's a question of clothes and small alterations to his appearance... He really does walk freely around on the streets."


Coward, filthy crack smoking street pimp will be held accountable for any harm that comes to Snowden, along with his CIA murderers who are already under the gun and will be KILLED worldwide for the Satanic scum they are
Kucherena, who is also an advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Snowden does not regret his decision to give up his life in the US in exchange for revealing confidential information about the US government’s domestic and global spying programs.

Snowden is “an extremely fast learner as far as the Russian language is concerned”, and has been spending some of his spare time learning it, Kucherena said.

The 30-year-old whistleblower spent a month in the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport before receiving permit to stay in Russia. He has not made any public appearances ever since.

Documents disclosed by Snowden showed that the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data of phone records and Internet communication of American citizens and other nationals around the world.

The former NSA contractor is charged with espionage in the United States. Snowden supplied reporters with 50,000 secret documents.
