Iran Sees Daesh as ‘Hornet’s Nest Project Devised by Washington and Riyadh’

from Sputnik International

Commenting to the recent remarks of Iran’s Chief of Staff of Armed Forces spokesman, who said that the US and Saudi Arabia are directing, guiding and supporting acts of terror by the terrorist group Daesh, Iranian political analysts told Sputnik that it is a long-known fact which was revealed long ago.

“The Daesh terrorist group is affiliated with the US and Saudi Arabia and carries out terrorist measures under the direction, guidance and support of these two countries,” Iranian Press TV broadcaster quoted Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri as saying on Tuesday.

“Today, we are witnessing the destructive effects of state terrorism, which is promoted by Saudi Arabia and the US as well as some reactionary countries in the region, in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen and other countries, including some European states,” the Iranian commander said.

Sputnik Persian interviewed a number of Iranian political analysts who said that there is nothing sensational in the remark of Massoud Jazayeri and reminded that the US openly encourages the recruitment of the Saudi nationals studying in the US to fight alongside Daesh (ISIS).

The political analysts referred to the report “From American College Campuses to ISIS Camps: How Hundreds of Saudis Joined ISIS in the US”, which has been recently released by the Institute for Gulf Affairs (IGA) based in Washington, D.C…

The Significance of the Kathy Griffin Head-chopper Photo

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: CNN has fired her. 

Not being an expert in such matters I can only imagine that when you run an unconventional warfare campaign like the one being conducted against the current president of the United States by the Deep State, various mileposts signify the relative success or failure of the tactics you are employing to demonize said target. You evaluate these achievements as they occur in real time and structure the direction of the project accordingly.

That is my guess as to how the manipulators of psychological warfare campaigns operate. It is only a guess but one based on years of research into the outward projections of their craft.

Such a milepost was reached yesterday when Kathy Griffin, a former mediocre comedian turned reality TV star and perpetual host of various D-list network events, published this photo:

Needless too say, the image stirred up controversy which is exactly what Ms. Griffin wanted.

Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate escapes from Canada’s terror list

by Evan Dyer, CBC

The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada’s list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift.

That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf.

It also illustrates the pitfalls of Canada following the lead of the U.S. in designating terror groups…

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (the Organization for Conquest in the Levant) began life as an expeditionary force called Jabhat al-Nusra (the Support Front), despatched into Syria in 2011 by the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now “caliph” of the Islamic State (ISIS). Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

The United States put the group on its terrorist list in 2012, as the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, and Canada followed suit.

Al-Baghdadi soon crossed into Syria himself, renouncing his allegiance to al-Qaeda and founding ISIS in April 2013…

What’s In A Name? U.S. Takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda Off Terror Watchlists

by Whitney Webb, Mint Press News

It turns out that getting off the U.S.’ and Canada’s terror watchlist is as simple as changing your name. While the terror watchlist in the U.S. has long been both secretive and controversial – as “reasonable suspicion” is enough to label any individual a “terrorist” – terrorist groups tied to al-Qaeda have found that getting off the watchlist only requires minor rebranding.

The terror group, long known to most as Jabhat al-Nusra or the al-Nusra Front, has continued to function as al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria long after Daesh (ISIS) renounced its allegiance to the group in 2014. It was first placed on the U.S. and Canadian terror watchlists in 2012.

But by changing its name to Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the group has managed to secure its removal from terror watchlists in both the U.S. and Canada, allowing citizens of those countries to donate money to the group, travel to fight with them and disseminate the group’s propaganda without incident.

In response, Nicole Thompson of the U.S. State Department told CBC News last Monday that while “we believe these actions are an al-Qaeda play to bring as much of the Syrian opposition under its operational control as possible, […] we are still studying the issue carefully.”

But the State Department is likely hesitant to label HTS a terror group, even despite the group’s link to al-Qaeda, as the U.S. government has directly funded and armed the Zenki brigade, a group that joined forces with al-Nusra under the HTS banner, with sophisticated weaponry…

The Deep State Unleashes the Complicit Media Over Comey Firing… but why?

by Scott Creighton

Let’s start off with this: James Comey Fired for Lying to Congress About Anthony Weiner Laptop (yes, it was the clintonemail.com backup)

Today on Morning Joe they started with an unusual mood on their set. The happy couple of Mika and Joe were sour-faced and serious when usually they start with an upbeat tone, laughing and joking with with their gaggle of Mockingbird yes-men gathered around the table. Joe scolded the president with his opening diatribe and then, like that stupid commercial about “winning in business” suggests, he whipped off his $1,000 designer nerd glasses and used the arm to point accusingly at the camera for emphasis. It could have looked powerful and dramatic if you’re a high school thespian maybe but for the rest of us adults in the room it made Scarborough look like the overly dramatic propagandist for the Deep State that he really is.

Mika sat next to him frowning. Aw. Big meanie Trump makes Mika cry. Won’t SOMEBODY think of Mika!?! What about her globalist daddy’s NEEDS!?!

Clearly not on the same dire page as the rest of the hens, Mark Halprin sat in his chair smiling at first like he always does at the opening of the … show. The camera panned over him, smiling, and you could see someone must have been yelling in his ear from the production room and his smile quickly faded to a scowl to blend in with the somber mood the pack was trying to set for their audience’s morning.

And yes, they were quick to say, multiple times, over and over again, that this was a real “constitutional crisis”… just like all the other “constitutional crises” they have claimed since Trump took office. What’s the count up to now? 50?

There you go viewers. Take that to work with you and be afraid, be very afraid. The Donald has lost his mind and is out of control!

Of course, had Hillary been elected president and fired James Comey, that would have been perfectly fine.

The Morning Joe puppets had a pile of papers on their table in front of them, like untraceable slush-fund cash at a Clinton Foundation planning meeting or like Di$info Jone$ when he screeches “I HAVE THE DOCUMENTS!!!”

So let’s take a look at all those documents littering Joe and Mika’s table of disinfo and see if there is a there there… because I don’t think there is.

The CIA’s Manufactured Hero “Edward Snowden” Condemns #ComeyFiring

by Scott Creighton

He’s hip, he’s in your face, he’s a high-school drop-out, an Army washout, a college security guard turned super spy… and he’s the poster child for “freedom”… and he’s a manufactured hero, former and current CIA creation, “Edward Snowden” and he thinks we all have to “come together” to condemn the firing of a guy who lied to congress making up a story about Huma forwarding emails to her pedophile husband and then lied some more when asked why he wasn’t going to prosecute her. James Comey did all that so he could protect Hillary Clinton some more… while she was making ready her destabilization NGO called “Onward Together!”

Trump Leaks Operation Condor-Era Declassified Docs to Argentina

from TeleSur

Entitled “Secret/Exdis,” the declassified documents provide new insight into U.S. support for human rights abuses in South America.

U.S. President Donald Trump met with Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Thursday, handing over 931 declassified Department of State records related to Operation Condor.

Operation Condor was a Cold War-era campaign of violence across Latin America that resulted in tens of thousands of activist deaths. Throughout the operation, the U.S. government teamed up with right-wing military dictatorships to extinguish leftist movements.

Trump’s leak falls in line with former President Barack Obama’s promise to release intelligence documents about human rights abuses committed by the Argentine military dictatorship during the 1970s and 1980s.

Entitled “Secret/Exdis,” the declassified documents provide new insight into U.S. support for human rights abuses in Argentina and neighboring countries. Here’s what the reports divulged.

They describe Operation Condor as a trans-border, multinational effort by Southern Cone secret police services to “track down” and “liquidate” regime opponents, the National Security Archive reports.

They detail the role played by the Central Intelligence Agency, CIA, Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency, DIA, and other intelligence agencies in purposefully ignoring human rights abuses committed by the military dictatorship.

They reveal that the orchestrators of Operation Condor considered establishing “field offices” in the United States and Europe…
