RAND PAUL, 2 OTHER SENATORS : EXPOSE FINANCERS OF 9/11 HIJACKERS

A final, decisive clean-sweep must be made of this "terror" attack before America can once more become a Republic of laws; those found to be involved must be investigated, arrested, prosecuted and jailed or executed for their crimes

The campaign to expose the financiers of the 9/11 attacks has heated up as GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul and two other senators co-sponsored legislation to require release of a 2002 joint House-Senate report that has remained secret.


Rand Paul
Paul spoke at a June 2 press conference on Capitol Hill with representatives of 9/11 families to urge his senate colleagues and President Obama to release the report, which reputedly states that Saudi Arabia funded several of the accused 9/11 hijackers in Florida and California.

“Information revealed over the years does raise questions about [Saudi Arabia’s] support, or whether their support might have been supportive to these Al Qaeda terrorists,” said Paul, who introduced two bills to release the information. 


Co-sponsoring one are Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Ron Wyden of Oregon. The two Democratic senators were not present at the news conference held at the Capitol's Visitors Center.

Capitol Hill News Conference: Who Financed 9/11 Attacks?

At the June 2 news conference, Rand Paul was flanked by families of 9/11 victims, House co-sponsors, and former Sen. Bob Graham (D-FL).


Then president George W. Bush with Saudis; just how close
was this relationship?
“We can not let page after page of blanked-out documents," Rand said, "be obscured behind a veil, leading these families to wonder if there is additional information surrounding these horrible acts.”

Graham, who led the congressional inquiry into the 9/11 attacks, said document release “will cause the American government to reconsider the nature of our relationship with Saudi Arabia.”


“Nearly every significant element that led to the attacks of Sept. 11 points to Saudi Arabia,” according to Terry Strada, the head of 9/11 Families and Survivors United For Justice Against Terrorism. “Money is the lifeblood of terrorism. Without money, 9/11 wouldn’t have happened.” 

Strada's husband was killed in the attacks. She brought her three children to the conference, including one, Kaitlyn Strada, who was four days old when his father was killed.

"9/11 children are growing up," said Kaitlyn Strada, "in a world where we can’t trust our own government because too many truths remain hidden about who was ultimately responsible for the murder of our parents."

The press conference at the Capitol's visitors center included a bipartisan group of House sponsors: Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Walter Jones (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-Ma).

Massie said the 28 pages establish a "chain of liability" around the attacks.

"The 28 pages in the report of over 800 pages go to the question of who financed 9/11 and they point a strong finger at Saudi Arabia," said Graham, who co-authored the report as a three-term senator co-chairing the 9/11 joint committee in 2002. At the time, he was also chairing the Senate Intelligence Committee.




Graham, like other elected officials in congress, is forbidden to discuss the report's contents. But he has said in general that the American public deserves to know the findings. Release of the information, he says, would not hurt national security.

Paul noted that 15 of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. Paul also said he does not immediately plan to read the pages on the Senate floor.

Paul, when asked if he thinks the report could disrupt the U.S.-Saudi relationship, replied, "I see this more as just a search for the truth."

Analysis and Update as of June 11: Justice Integrity Project

Given the importance of 9/11 to most other major issues (such as war, budgets and other domestic policies), the Justice Integrity Project notes with alarm the lack of normal news coverage of the June 2 news conference on the 9/11 secret documents and a similar lack of interest by most members of the Senate and House.



As amplified below, few elected representatives have been willing even to look at the documents, much less voice an opinion on whether the 9/11 families and the rest of the public should be allowed to learn who funded the accused attackers. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, for example, this week responded in New Hampshire on the presidential campaign trail to a question about the documents by saying officials should learn the secrets only if they were "inclined" to do so. That stance is not leadership, especially since the fatal attacks victimized many New Jersey families and Christie has built much of his career on his supposedly blunt advocacy. Apparently, however, delving into 9/11 secrets is way too tough for him and most of his peers.

We urge the defeat of any federally elected official or 2016 presidential candidate who has not at least read the documents and taken a position pro or con on whether they should be declassified and shared with the public. This is non-partisan, just like the current movement to declassify the documents.


Who is Obama protecting?
Let's not mince words about the reasons for the impasse. 

In 2003, 46 Democratic U.S. senators unsuccessfully demanded release of the secret 9/11 report when it appeared they could gain partisan advantage by seeking it over the objections of President Bush's administration and his GOP colleagues. 


Now that President Obama is stonewalling 9/11 families despite his 2008 campaign pledge, Democrats dare not oppose both their president, GOP militarists and the vast wealth of Saudi Arabia and its allies, who include Wall Street, the defense industry and the most important thought leaders at foundations, "think tanks," academia and the media.

The bipartisan U.S. foreign policy is a disaster, as we and others have been reporting. So are the operations of Congress, the supposed people's representative.

Members of the public have very little impact on decision-making in general, but hold one trump card: Presidential aspirants and elected representatives occasionally must meet the public and at least pretend to care about important issues. Many are taking the precaution of using guards and other screening methods to ensure that they only meet pre-vetted, friendly individuals. But at least some in the public can get past the gatekeepers, especially during the year 2015 before front-runners and established as celebrities above question. For the future of your families, you must not be deterred and must insist on answers.

Perhaps most notable about the June 2 news conference was lack of coverage by the establishment media. With Rand Paul taking a lead, the news conference thereby featured a prominent GOP presidential contender ranking near the top in public opinion polls among contenders, representatives of 9/11 families, and Bob Graham, a former Senate intelligence committee chairman. As a three-term senator, Graham had co-authored the secret report revealing vital clues to one of the greatest crimes in American history. It helped spark the still-ongoing wars in central Asia and the Middle East that have so-far cost trillions of dollars and more than a million lives. Yet Graham like other elected leaders faces prison if he tells the public the solutions investigators found.


"Mainstream media" has everything to lose when
the truth about their collaboration in cover-ups
become public knowledge
Concerning what must be termed a continuing cover-up: The New York Times and Los Angeles Times had reporters present who did not publish stories, according to the Executive Intelligence Review, which assisted three House members in publicizing the news conference. 

The Washington Post coverage appeared only online and not in its printed edition. 

A Bloomberg column primarily mocked those in the audience asking questions, thus trivializing the substance of the featured speakers' concerns.



The likely reasons for the lack of coverage are clear to those of us at the Justice Integrity Project, as well as to other Washington observers: The nation's pro-interventionist bipartisan majority is funded by the financial, military and intelligence colossus.

Those financial powers dominate both major parties, as well as the supposedly independent voices in the academia and the media, including "alternative" media that profess to being independent. The funding is not simply in the ads the militarists buy in the media or in their campaign donations. That spending is a superficial symptom of a deep relationship that operates primarily unseen and on automatic pilot.

The vast bulk of participants in politics, the media and elsewhere have scant understanding of the process, in our experience. Ambitious and often civic-minded young people who provide the bulk of output from Congress, political campaigns, agencies, Washington's media, foundations, etc. have little incentive or opportunity to learn big picture strategies of decision-makers and their funders.

We here have learned of them only after decades of experience and intensives study. The fruits are reflected in several recent columns listed immediately below. Thus, for example, the largely unreported key fact of the Dennis Hastert pedophile scandal is that the secret made him vulnerable to pressures to rubber-stamp President Bush's war agenda, among other dubious policy choices.





The topics might seem disjointed but have a common thread in actuality: Waging disastrous wars that damage the United States economy and moral leadership, without effective scrutiny.

We narrow that focus further today to focus on the media and elected representatives.

The lack of normal news coverage serves as evidence that the secret segment of the 9/11 report must be important, even though experienced apologists for news managers and docile members of the press corps can always find rationales for omitting coverage of sensitive matters. 


Michael Morell
The rest of us, however, are entitled to conclude that the suppressed information inevitably points to even more sensitive and important information. 

More subtle is the approach by Michael Morell, a 33-year career CIA officer whose responsibilities included the daily national security briefing to President George W. Bush, including a period before the Iraq war.


Readers here can recall that former deputy CIA director Michael Morell author of the gung-ho new memoir: The Great War of Our Time: The CIA's Fight Against Terrorism from Al Qa'ida to ISIS, ducked our question at a National Press Club news conference May 18 on why the CIA opposed release of the 28 pages. 

After 33 years at the agency, including two stints as acting director and a current post as senior news analyst for CBS news on intelligence matters, Morell could only say he did not know the basis of the CIA's opposition to release of the 28 pages and of remaining materials on the JFK assassination.

Such answers in the rare occasions when members of the press are able to pose questions on the record and unfiltered to the intelligence/financial/media establishment should themselves count as clues suggesting the need for further digging.

Given the stakes for the nation and the world, the view from here is that no senator or House member of either party deserves re-election if he or she has not looked at the 28-pages and rendered an opinion publicly about the content. Additionally, any news or opinion journal purporting to cover Capitol Hill and other national affairs severely diminishes its credibility by failure to cover the debate about release of the 28 secret pages in the 9/11 report issued in 2002.

Obama Considering More Military Bases In Iraq; USAF Can't Seem To Find "ISIS"

NAPLES, Italy - 

The United States is considering building more U.S. military bases in Iraq to drive back Islamic State militants in a move that may require a further increase in American forces, the top U.S. general said on Thursday.


Back in the saddle again: Obama means to really
kick ass and take names THIS time around
A day after the White House announced the deployment of 450 more U.S. troops to Iraq and a new training hub in Anbar province, General Martin Dempsey said the Pentagon was considering more sites in strategic areas such as the corridor from Baghdad to Tikrit and further north toward Mosul.

Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, acknowledged these might require sending more U.S. troops, which already numbered about 3,100 in Iraq before Wednesday's announcement. 




His spokesman said American forces could also be moved from within Iraq to avoid troop increases.

"Our campaign is built upon establishing these ‘lily pads,’ if you will, that allow us to continue to encourage the Iraqi security forces forward," Dempsey told reporters before landing in Naples, Italy.


Dempsey, following his courts-martial, will be seated with his master Obama at his war crimes trial

U.S. President Barack Obama has said the troops would not engage in combat in Iraq, where the Pentagon has relied heavily on an air campaign that U.S. officials say has killed thousands of Islamic State fighters and eroded their capability.

While the 3,100 U.S. forces in Iraq are a far cry from the peak of about 170,000 under President George W. Bush, the newly announced operations mark the first significant adjustment in Obama's Iraqi strategy in months and follow gains by Islamic State insurgents who control a third each of Iraq and Syria.


Military hospitals will once more be doing a booming business
Asked about Dempsey's comments, White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes told MSNBC, "if (Obama) gets a recommendation to have another facility like this, he'll take a hard look at it."

Dempsey also renewed the possibility of deploying U.S. spotters alongside Iraqi forces to call in air strikes during a future offensive, but added, "we’re just not there yet."


The possible future training sites, such as the hub at the Taqaddum military base about 15 miles (25 km) from Ramadi, were "just part of prudent planning," he said.


Obama and Dempsey may just get their wish for a military
draft this time to cover for casualties and deaths
"It's very practical (planning), looking at geographic locations, road networks, airfields, places where we can actually establish these hubs," Dempsey said. 

Dempsey did not see another such site in Anbar province soon. "But I could conceive of one potentially somewhere in the corridor that runs from Baghdad to Tikrit to Kirkuk and over into Mosul. So we're looking at that area," Dempsey said.


TAQADDUM WEEKS AWAY

Dempsey said it would take several weeks to establish the new hub announced on Wednesday at Taqaddum near Ramadi, which fell to Islamic State militants last month.


The DOA U.S. economy will get a much needed boost from funerals and funeral home expenses

Taqaddum will require new American defenses to detect and guard against incoming rockets and mortars.


What Obama is not telling Americans is he plans
military troops are sent back into Iraq
One benefit of Taqaddum, Dempsey said, is it would help draw in tribes that felt unsafe traveling to the other U.S. outpost in Sunni-dominated Anbar province, at the Ain al-Asad air base.

"Using Taqaddum gives us access to more of the tribes that are willing to stand against ISIL," Dempsey said, using an acronym for Islamic State. 

Dempsey, who has long warned about the limits of U.S. military power in Iraq, said he expected Sunni tribes would represent a "holding force" to control territory seized in Anbar and would protect the flanks of the Iraqi security forces as they advance.


He expressed confidence that the latest deployments to Taqaddum would help advance Iraq's military campaign against Islamic State, but that the real test was whether Iraq's government could mend a sectarian rift between Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims.




"The game changers are going to have to come from the Iraqi government themselves," he said.

Mass Protests In Kiev Mount Against The U.S. - Backed Puppet Regime In Ukraine

Blowback from Obama's CIA financed and engineered coup in Ukraine finally arrives  

THE 4TH MEDIA
By Thomas Gaist
06/11/2015

In the latest eruption of mass protests against the US puppet government of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, thousands of demonstrators swept through the streets of Kiev this weekend. 


Marchers demanded cancellation of martial law decrees, the repeal of subsidy cuts that have driven up the price of energy and foodstuffs, and the reversal of cuts to wages and pensions imposed by the government.

Demonstrators held placards demanding an end to cuts in pensions and denouncing the spiking prices of basic commodities. Slogans included “Raise pensions,” “We are hungry,” “Out with Yatsenyuk and his reforms,” and “Impeach Poroshenko!”


The demonstrations over the weekend come on the heels of so-called “Financial Maidan” protests at the end of May, which saw thousands protest in Kiev against catastrophic economic conditions produced by the government’s austerity policies.


In addition to the protest marches, Occupy-style tent camps, referred to in media reports as “Maidan 3.0,” sprung up in the center of the city over the weekend. After refusing orders from police to take down the encampment, the campers were assaulted on Sunday by dozens of masked men brandishing black and red fascist flags. 


The attackers spoke with nearby police units before launching their attack, according to reports.

Sputnik News, a Russian state media web site, charged US operatives with intervening inside the Occupy-style protest encampments. 


Terrorist-hugger McCain at it again - this
time with CIA dupe Rustam Tashbaev
It alleged that the protest camps were organized by Rustam Tashbaev of the Stratagem Center for Political Analysis, a US think tank. 

Sputnik’s report featured an alleged photo of Tashbaev, a US citizen, posing for a portrait with US Senator John McCain.

Ukraine has undoubtedly become a hotbed of US intrigue, since a NATO-backed coup led by the fascist Right Sector militia toppled the country’s pro-Russian government, and US operatives may well be intervening in the protests.



However, what is driving the protests is rising opposition in the Ukrainian population to the Kiev regime’s moves to transform Ukraine into a cheap labor platform and garrison state on behalf of the US-NATO war drive against Russia.

Since the February 2014 coup, the population has faced harsh cuts to pensions and social benefits, mass layoffs, sub-subsistence level wages, and skyrocketing prices of basic necessities.


Thousands of Ukrainians have been killed and at least 1.5 million displaced, and production has virtually collapsed in the country’s main industrial centers in Luhansk and Donetsk.

Ukraine’s economy will likely contract by at least 9 percent in 2015, according to estimates by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). 


The value of the Ukrainian currency will likely fall by nearly 50 percent in 2015 alone, according to the EBRD.

Last month, the price of water surged by more than 70 percent. Previous months saw increases in natural gas prices of nearly 300 percent. Food, medicine and transportation prices all rose dramatically in the year following the 2014 coup, with some basic items rising by more than 200 percent.




“We are about to see huge energy price increases. This will affect not just the poor but the middle class as well,” Volodymyr Ischenko said in comments to the Center for Social and Labor Research this week.

Already in January, months before the latest price hikes, some 30 percent of the population was unable to pay for utilities.

The rising prices are the result of cuts to subsidies for basic goods, dictated to Kiev by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The subsidy cuts free up government funds, which used to be earmarked for keeping energy and basic commodities relatively affordable for working people, to be shoveled into the pockets of Ukraine’s creditors in the US and European banks.


There is escalating popular anger against the Kiev regime. Nearly 60 percent of the population is strongly dissatisfied with Poroshenko, with less than 25 percent expressing confidence in Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, according to polls released in March.

The war mounted by the pro-NATO regime against separatist forces in the East has met with large-scale draft dodging by the population in western Ukraine. 


At least 13,000 soldiers have gone AWOL from Ukrainian government forces since the beginning of the civil war.

More than 80 percent of draftees have failed to respond to musters from the government, and Ukrainian officers now assume that only some 15 percent of soldiers sent on leave will return to their units, according to statistics published by the Washington Post in April.


Ukrainian army getting asses handed to them by rebels

Even as the economy plummets and popular opposition to the government grows, the re-eruption of military conflict between Kiev regime forces and pro-Russian separatists is plunging the country back toward the conditions of brutal civil war that developed in the aftermath of last year’s coup.


Merkel now calling the shots in Ukraine
According to Foreign Policy, the outbreak of fighting last week has “shattered” the Minsk cease-fire agreement reached this February. 

The always unstable pause in the fighting, which was largely forced upon the Kiev regime by the deepening economic crisis, has likely been “permanently destroyed” by the renewed clashes, Foreign Policy wrote.


Fearful that its Ukrainian puppet regime could suffer a new defeat or implode politically due to popular opposition, Washington is mobilizing paramilitary forces to prop up the Kiev regime. “They’ve allowed the Right Sector to integrate with Ukraine’s national army. You have US army officers training units with members of Right Sector in them,” political analyst Aleksandar Pavic noted in comments to RT Tuesday.


Poroshenko soon to find out the hard way just what it means to be "friends" with Obama

A new generation of Ukrainian fascists are receiving training and advanced military hardware, including night-vision and communications technology, supplied directly by the US Defense Department.


NATO Nazis well on the way to sparking WWIII
In April, the Pentagon dispatched some 300 US soldiers to conduct training exercises with Ukrainian militants, including known members of the Azov Battalion and other forces affiliated with Ukraine’s neo-Nazi milieu, as part of “Operation Fearless Guardian.”

Comments from Ukrainian anti-terror chief Andriy Lysenko made clear that the training would focus on counter-insurgency tactics designed to control enemy populations, along the lines of those used by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
