al-Qaeda-linked Terrorist and Former British Businessman Allowed to Visit DC in December

from McClatchy

A senior figure from a Syrian rebel group with links to al Qaida was allowed into the United States for a brief visit, raising questions about how much the Obama administration will compromise in the search for partners in the conflict.

Labib al Nahhas, foreign affairs director for the Islamist fighting group Ahrar al Sham, spent a few days in Washington in December, according to four people with direct knowledge of the trip and who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of U.S. relations with Syrian rebels.

His previously undisclosed visit is a delicate matter for both sides – the conservative Salafist insurgents risk their credibility with even perceived ties to the United States, and the U.S. government risks looking soft on screenings by allowing entry to a member of an Islamist paramilitary force.

National security analysts say U.S. authorities likely knew of Nahhas’ arrival – intelligence agencies for years have watched his group’s interactions with al Qaida’s Syrian branch, the Nusra Front.

A Spanish citizen who studied in Birmingham and headed a tech company based in a London suburb is leading efforts to rebrand one of Syria’s most prominent armed Islamist opposition groups.

Labib al-Nahhas is the “foreign affairs minister” for Ahrar al-Sham, a group that has fought in alliances with al-Qaida’s Syrian franchise, and aims to establish a Sunni theocracy in Syria. One of its original leaders also had personal connections with Osama bin Laden.

His role sends him around western capitals arguing that his group is an ultra-conservative but legitimate part of the opposition, using his own European roots to reach out to diplomats wary of the group’s history and beliefs.

“In American law, providing material support for terrorism is a crime prohibited by the USA PATRIOT Act and codified in title 18 of the United States Code, sections 2339A and 2339B. It applies primarily to groups designated as terrorists by the State Department. The four types of support described are “training,” “expert advice or assistance,” “service,” and “personnel.”

And the spokesman for the State Department has nothing to say about Labib al-Nahhas being allowed to run around drumming up support for a known Salafist terror organization with proven ties to al-Qaeda?

We Are Attacking the GMCIR and the People of Fallujah, Not “ISIS™”

by Scott Creighton

FALLUJAH

The Iraqi puppet regime and it’s sugar daddy, the US military, has just started a new slaughter in Fallujah. They dropped leaflets over the city a couple days ago telling people to get out, pretty much the same thing they did back in 2004, twice, when they decimated the city and killed thousands of civilians because they failed to bow down to the new rulers of Iraq.

They say they are after “ISIS™”. That’s a lie. They are fighting against the Iraqi insurgency (post-U.S. withdrawal) not some fabricated justification cobbled together to give President Peace Prize some legitimacy as he rushes back into Iraq to preserve our grasp on what Dick Cheney and George Bush stole back in 2003.

Fallujah and Mosul are critical elements of this fight and it has nothing to do with British carney workers and the fake beheading videos they made.

The complicit press is already in the process of justifying huge numbers of civilian casualties as the “human shields” story and “ISIS death squads” stories are being cobbled together.

Clearly, large numbers of civilian casualties are expected in this new offensive to take Fallujah from the General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries (GMCIR)

While the MSM and most of the so-called “alternative” press in this country is focused on which unpopular candidate will “win” in November, I intend to spend as much time as I can covering the new massacre being carried out in Fallujah.

A Mother’s Story Shows Us “ISIS™” In Syria is Nothing More than a British Regime Change Operation

by Scott Creighton

British citizen Maha Elgizouli and her two “ISIS” sons

A new revelation regarding the “ISIS™” characters in Syria expose the most visible of these guys as being British losers, probably recruited by MI6 to head over to Syria and destabilized the country via terrorism in a regime change operation started by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

In Syria, the “Beatles” gained a reputation as the cruellest of all ISIS guards, using electric shocks, waterboarding, and mock executions – including a staged crucifixion – to terrorise their hostages. They beheaded seven British, American, and Japanese hostages, including the British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning, and 18 members of the Syrian army.” Jane Bradley, Buzz Feed

According to Jane Bradley of Buzz Feed, an accomplice of “Jihadi John”, the British “ISIS™” character who made all those fake beheading videos, has been identified as yet another British citizen. This one is a carney, 27-year-old El Shafee Elsheikh. According to the official story, he went to Syria to join “ISIS™” in 2012… a full two years before “ISIS™” was born.

‘War minister!’ Hundreds rally in Tel Aviv to decry Israeli PM’s defense chief pick

from RT

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Tel Aviv on Saturday to protest the far-right turn the government has signaled by choosing Avigdor Lieberman as Defense Minister. Activists say PM Benjamin Netanyahu is putting Israel on a path of war.

Demonstrators came together at HaBima Square in Tel Aviv, saying that by appointing Lieberman to head the military, Netanyahu had created the “most right wing government in the history of the State,” Israeli media reported.

“We think this government is a disaster for our country,” the Jerusalem Post quoted one of the organizers as shouting. “There is no future or vision.” 

Protesters held up Peace Now signs and waved green left-wing Meretz party flags as they chanted slogans with Netanyahu’s nickname: “Bibi you failed, Bibi go home,” and “We don’t want more victims, Lieberman is a minister of war.”

Egyptair Flight MS804 : Expert Says Rapid Decompression Might Have Set Off Smoke Detectors

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE:It looks like the right front and side windows were blown out, most probably from inside out,” European airline pilot

Just a short note.

The MSM is focusing solely on the ACARS report that smoke detectors went off in two locations right behind and underneath the cockpit just before the plane made a “jerky and sudden” 90 deg turn to the left and then plummeted into the Mediterranean Sea. They claim this means either a terrorist attack inside the plane or a mechanical malfunction caused a fire on-board and that is what brought down Egyptair Flight MS804.

As is usually the case with the MSM, that is not entirely accurate.

Turns out, sudden decompression can cause smoke detectors to go off on a plane.

The Telegraph reports that the signals likely indicate an internal explosion that could have blown out windows from the inside out and started a fire on board. An external explosion, like the missile that brought down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, would have caused more alarms to trigger.

Although industry analyst Robert W. Mann tells The New York Times that a fire onboard was not necessarily the only way to cause the automated messages.  “The messages could also have been prompted by rapid decompression of the aircraft, which can produce condensation that the plane’s sensors could mistake for smoke,” Mr. Mann said” CS Monitor

Notice what the Telegraph did? They deliberately tried to undermine the theory that the plane could have been hit by a missile like Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. I wonder why they would do that.

Well, they would probably do that because more and more the information we are getting is making it look like a missile brought down Flight MS804 and not “terrorism” or a mechanical failure of some kind.

Rapid decompression could have caused those sensors to go off and the fact that they were both located near the cockpit says a lot, especially when you consider what happened with Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. Here’s a little visual aid to help you guys remember.

Clinton Does Best Where Voting Machines Flunk Hacking Tests

(Mentioned in this article is the South Carolina Senate primary of 2010 which I covered extensively. It was a pure hack, election fraud at it’s most obvious. Yet the South Carolina Democratic Party ignored the facts presented before them and allowed the idiot Alvin Greene to represent them in the general election. They did this so the real candidate from the Democrat Party, a man who was not a neoliberal “centrist” would lose to the Republican neoliberal who eventually “won”)

by Doug Johnson Hatlem, Counterpunch

At the end of the climactic scene (8 minutes) in HBO’s Emmy nominated Hacking Democracy (2006), a Leon County, Florida Election official breaks down in tears. “There are people out there who are giving their lives just to try to make our elections secure,” she says. “And these vendors are lying and saying everything is alright.” Hundreds of jurisdictions throughout the United States are using voting machines or vote tabulators that have flunked security tests. Those jurisdictions by and large are where former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is substantially outperforming the first full wave of exit polling in her contest against Senator Bernie Sanders.
