THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!
“There is a systematic plan to use the concepts of war to rearrange the chess pieces on the world playing board. It has to do with the New World Order, Globlism and the attack on national sovereignty we are seeing. Occasionally, the globalists who want One World Government have to turn to war to accelerate things.” — Joel Skousen
Global default tally rises to 72, with $121bn of debt. Will probably smash through last year’s 113 default total.

Head of the IMF Christine Lagarde in court charged with embezzlement and fraud
The head of the International Monetary Fund arrived in the dock of a Paris courtroom today as she braced herself to be formally charged with embezzlement and fraud.
Christine Lagarde’s humiliation is not only a massive personal blow which could lead to her resignation, but one which will plunge the world’s banking system into further ignominy.
The clearly nervous 57-year-old said nothing to reporters as she entered the Court of Justice of the Republic, a special tribunal set up to judge the conduct of France’s government ministers, shortly after 8.30am.
Latest Foster Cover-Up Book Not Completely Worthless
Peschmann’s Scalice passage appears on page 106 of her book. At this point the reader might as well just continue with his Internet reading and ditch the book. The Knowlton appendix referred to—by dint of the judges’ decision as much a part of the official report as the work of Starr’s team—thoroughly destroys Peschmann’s thesis. She guesses that Foster, after going out and eating some more somewhere, came back to the White House shortly after 5 o’clock and shot himself in his office with his own gun and was then transported to Fort Marcy Park and dumped there by panicked fellow White House lawyers working late.
This is the article that started the kerfuffle between Peschmann and today’s radio guest, Dave Martin!

What’s The Big Difference Between NATO’s Moderates And Extremists In Syria?
So what’s the big difference between the “moderate” terrorists and the extremist terrorists running rampant in Syria today? At one time, we were told there were no terrorists at all. Then, we were told terrorists were indeed present but that there were also moderate, secular, democracy-loving freedom fighters in the country. Now, after the nature of the so-called “rebels” has been revealed ad infinitum by the alternative and independent press, it is admitted that the “fighters” in Syria are terrorists but, apparently, some are moderate and some are extreme.
Of course, they all have the same goal of Sharia. They all hate minorities, Christians, Alawites, Shiites, etc. They all torture. They all rape. We could go on and on…
How to squander $52m of charitable money in 6 months
In March, an Anchorage jury convicted Avery of numerous counts of fraud and money laundering, and on Monday he was sentenced to 13 years in prison. His crime? Burning through $52 million of May Smith Trust money in six months, the biggest private fraud case in Alaskan history. The trust was intended to support an elderly widow and go to charity after she died.

Horseradish Contains Compounds Which Remove Cancer From The Body
Horseradish (Cochlearia armoracia) is a natural antibacterial which contains compounds that could help detoxify and eliminate cancer-causing compounds in the body, a study has shown.
The cancer-fighting compound, known as glucosinolates, undergoes a series of chemical reactions that activates enzymes involved in the detoxification of cancer-causing molecules.
Health-supportive molecules like glucosinolates are concentrated in these horseradish greens in the same way that they are concentrated in the leaves of the plants…

SO, YOU THOUGHT BANK OF AMERICA WOULD BE PUNISHED FOR ROLE IN 2008 CRISIS? THINK AGAIN
In a reversal of the smidgen of accountability forced on Bank of America for its role in the 2008 financial crisis, a U.S. appeals court threw out a jury’s verdict — and with it, the $1.27 billion fine BoA would have paid for mortgage fraud. Though the Department of Justice had alleged Countrywide Financial Corp., which was purchased by Bank of America in 2008, had sold Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac thousands of bad loans through its “Hustle” mortgage program, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York found insufficient evidence to back charges of fraud.

US MARSHALS SEND WRONG WOMAN TO JAIL, WHERE SHE WAS STRIP SEARCHED AND SHACKLED
When a team of “vested up and gunned up” U.S. Marshals in Tennessee apprehended Tracy Hinson and began interrogating her about selling 10 Xanax tablets in 2012, she gave them answers that made it clear they had the wrong woman. The marshal in charge told Hinton he needed to make a call. “After he went and made a call, he came back and told me that he had to do what the paper said he had to. He asked if I ever lived in Mt. Pleasant, and I said no,” said Hinson. “They took me to the Dyer County Jail and I was fully processed there, and that included being shackled and strip searched. They said they were holding me until Lawrence County could come and pick me up that night.”

NYPD CAUGHT RED-HANDED SANITIZING POLICE BRUTALITY WIKIPEDIA ENTRIES
IP addresses linked to the New York Police Department’s computer network have been used to sanitize Wikipedia entries about cases of police brutality. This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen nefarious alterations to Wikipedia entries, and it won’t be the last. But the disclosure of NYPD’s entries by Capital New York come as the Justice Department announced a national initiative for “building community trust and justice” with the nation’s policing agencies.
US Federal Court: Private Lawsuit Can Bring 16 of the World’s Largest Criminal Banks to Their Knees
In 2007, more than a dozen of the world’s largest banks colluded to deliberately depress the rate at which they paid out on investments. This rate is known as the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR), which is the average of interest rates estimated by each of the leading banks in London that it would be charged were it to borrow from other banks.
Financial institutions, mortgage lenders, and credit card agencies around the world, set their own rates relative to it, and at least $350 trillion in derivatives and other financial products are tied to the LIBOR. These mega banks suppressed LIBOR, during the beginning of the collapse, to boost earnings and make their bottom lines appear healthier.
This banking conspiracy to rig LIBOR was one of the key factors in bringing about the financial collapse of 2008. The scandal was so large, in fact, that it nearly bankrupt the planet…
Religious Extremists Waging a Quiet Revolution in Israel
In a surprise move, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week forced out his long-serving defense minister, Moshe Yaalon. As he stepped down, Mr Yaalon warned: “Extremist and dangerous elements have taken over Israel.”
He was referring partly to his expected successor: Avigdor Lieberman, leader of the far-right Yisrael Beiteinu party, whose trademark outbursts have included demands to bomb Egypt and behead disloyal Palestinian citizens.
But Mr Yaalon was also condemning extremism closer to home, in Mr Netanyahu’s Likud Party. Mr Yaalon is to take a break from politics. With fitting irony, his slot is to be filled on Likud’s backbenches by Yehuda Glick, a settler whose goal to destroy Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa mosque and replace it with a Jewish temple has the potential to set the Middle East on fire.
Israeli commentators pointed out that, with Mr Lieberman’s inclusion, the government will be the most extreme in Israel’s history – again.
This move to the right in Israeli politics should concern anyone who believes that a reasonable peace, negotiated in good faith, between the Palestinians and Israelis, is the only way to avoid more brutal conflict in the region.
The possibilities for peace and social justice for Palestinians are not looking terribly bright right now.
Forbidden Alliance: US Won’t Let Russia, Turkey, Iran Unite Against Daesh
Washington is trying to deter any possible alliance between Russia, Turkey and Iran on Syria: if the three countries unite their efforts against the terrorists, the jihadists will easily be defeated and the US will thereby lose its ability to destabilize the region, Iranian political analyst and former journalist Hassan Hanizadeh told Sputnik.
The US is thwarting any possible alliance between Russia, Turkey and Iran to fight the terrorist groups in Syria, Hassan Hanizadeh, former editor-in-chief of the Iranian news agency MehrNews told Sputnik.
Meanwhile, Washington is using the terrorist groups operating on the ground in Syria as a tool to divide the countries of the region. Thus, the political editor added, the US is interested in keeping relations between Turkey and Russia strained and in stirring tensions between Iran and Turkey.
Washington, he explained, is interested in extending its sphere of influence in the Middle East.
And as the rotted corpses keep piling up in Syria, courtesy of US-government trained and funded jihadists, the US government doesn’t give a rat’s derriere about the carnage, as long as it believes it is on a path to oust Al-Assad.
Dare I say, in their minds, “the end justifies the means”, even of the means results in thousands of innocent civilians, including women, children, and the medically fragile elderly, dead?!?

EgyptAir crash: Body parts retrieved from flight MS804 crash site ‘point to an explosion on board aircraft’
A forensics official has said human remains retrieved from the area where EgyptAir Flight 804 crashed point to an explosion on board.
The anonymous official is part of Egypt’s investigative team and has examined victim’s remains at a morgue in Cairo.
He told the Associated Press that all 80 body parts received so far are small and that “there isn’t even a whole body part, like an arm or a head”, adding: “The logical explanation is that an explosion brought it down…but I cannot say what caused the blast.”
Egypt’s al-Watan newspaper quoted another unnamed forensics official saying the plane blew up in mid-air, leaving remains “no larger than the size of a hand”, but that it has yet to be determined whether an explosive device was to blame.
The head of Egypt’s forensics authority denied there was evidence of an explosion later on Tuesday.
Pentagon Talks Up ‘Eclectic’ Recruits for Syrian Training Scheme
After their last attempt to recruit and train a whole new rebel faction for Syria ended in disaster, the Pentagon is angling to try again. US officials are bursting with confidence, saying they have more Arabs volunteering than they know what to do with.
Described as an “eclectic” group, the new recruits seem even less suited to the role than the last ones. One US military adviser described them as “raw, literally civilians coming off the streets,” which plays well to the US narrative of locals rising up to resist ISIS.
But the US training missions have struggled enough with training proper militaries and rebels with considerable existing experience. Carving a whole new fighting force out of untrained civilians is the very thing President Obama mocked as “fantasy.”
I would like to politely remind those members of the Pentagon who believe this to be a “good idea” to remember that to do something over and over again, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the classic definitions of insanity.
The Rise of the Meta-Criminal; Is the NSA Manipulating the Stock Market?

“Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate financial systems.”
Timm quite rightly wondered: why were these warnings in the report?…

Syria blames Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia for deadly bombings
The Syrian government has accused Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia of being behind a wave of bombings in the coastal cities of Tartous and Jableh.
The state-run news agency Sana said the attacks constituted a “serious escalation”, and were aimed at derailing peace efforts.
State media said at least 78 people were killed, while a monitoring group put the death toll at more than 145.
So-called Islamic State (IS) has said it was behind the attacks.
The cities, on Syria’s Mediterranean coast, are part of the heartland of President Bashar al-Assad and have, until now, escaped the worst of the civil war.
Take a good, hard look at the carnage here.
Then, understand that behind it all is the United States Government, which is funding and training these insurgents, and attempting, by whatever means necessary, to throw Bashar Al-Assad out of office, and replace him with a compliant, western-centric puppet.
The Death of Vincent Foster
This is the story that nobody dares touch. This is the story that ended my career in Hollywood back in 1994.
Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut’s signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster’s neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster’s death as a suicide.
Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster’s recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued and made famous).
Trump has stated that there is something “fishy” about the death of Vincent Foster. Actually, it’s more the size of a whale, but the corporate media has jumped all over Trump, denouncing him for his “far-fetched” (WaPo) comment. But as this article, the very first ever written on my path to becoming a truth activist reveals, there is indeed a lot of reasons to discount the suicide cover-up.
Pentagon-Linked Analysts Push Preemptive Strike on Russia, Missile Defense
The Beltway military punditry floats one of its most inflammatory ideas yet, in calls for a preemptive strike against Moscow along with calls to bolster America’s missile defense system.
On Friday, a DC-based think tank issued a report calling for additional funding to advance US missile defense technology to combat what they view as a rising nuclear missile threat from Russia.
Earlier this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin scoffed at Western assertions that Russia poses the preeminent threat to the US and NATO, labeling the idea of an attack against the military alliance “the type of thing that only crazy people think, and only when they are dreaming.”
Have these gentlemen gone utterly barking mad, to be suggesting such things, and have they completely lost their reality licence?!?
Russia has not demonstrated any national government behaviour which could possibly be construed as “aggressive” under Putin’s watch; in fact, it has been more than reasonable, given the nature of US and NATO actions against it.
Rather than demonising Russia, the US government and military need to look at where its own weapons systems development and procurement systems are broken, and fix the problems.
And that problem starts with the incestuous relationship between weapons manufacturers and the Congressional representatives who award the contracts for those weapons. Those weapons companies are very “generous”, in terms of how they support Congressional representatives who approve those contracts.
How this translates, at the end of the day, is that when US weapons are ultimately deployed in the field, they frequently do not work as advertised; are hideously over budget, and are delivered so late as to become very quickly obsolete.
There are two potential pieces of legislation which could fix the problem, but unfortunately could only possibly get passed when pigs fly.
The first is that US legislators cannot take any money, or any other perks, from any US weapons company, period, end of discussion. Any attempt to get around this result in getting fired from Congress, and a snap election held for a replacement.
The second is, if a weapon does not perform as specified in the field, according to the specifications defined by that company, that the weapons manufacturers will be subject not only to hefty fines, but also jail time for the heads of corporations which made those weapons.
Apology To Japan Would Mean US Admits Past Crimes: Analyst

Paul Ryan Slams VA Secretary, But Stops Short Of Calling For Resignation
Speaker Paul Ryan had harsh words for Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Bob McDonald on Tuesday, after the top VA official earlier compared health appointment wait times for veterans to lines at Disney. But most notable were the words Ryan didn’t use: that McDonald should resign.
“I don’t know if he should resign,” Ryan said Tuesday morning when asked if he, like Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), thought McDonald’s comments rose to that level. “He should clarify his comments, and he should show some empathy for our veterans that he’s supposed to serve. This really is just beyond the pale, a comment like this.”
McDonald made the case on Monday at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast that the VA should be measured less by doctor’s appointment wait times and more by satisfaction. “When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line?” McDonald asked. “What’s important? What’s important is: what’s your satisfaction with the experience?”
Wait times for our Veterans can, literally, mean the difference between life and death.
That McDonald seems to be blissfully unaware of this reality should be, alone, is a damned good reason for sacking him, and right the heck now.
As most of you who know who have read my posts on this blog, I abhor the concept of war as a way of resolving geopolitical disputes; I encourage the US government to resolve these conflicts through good faith, hard-won, honorable negotiations which relieve tensions, and let commerce flow by creating win/win situations.
But when it comes to our Veterans, I firmly believe that they should have the highest level of medical and psychological care possible available to them, and in a very timely manner; as much as I hate the concept of war, these men and women have earned, and deserve this.

Retired Bishop Explains Why the Church Invented Hell
Religions tend to invent ideas and concepts just like every other creative human enterprise, and they have unleashed some remarkably bad ideas onto humanity. Most of these are centered around the notion of telling people what to do and how to live their lives, with the aim of convincing people that conformity to church guidelines will bring some intangible reward in the afterlife.
One example of many is the Christian belief that the one and only way not to eternally burn in Hell is to accept Jesus Christ as the savior, as if no other deity or religious experience is valid to the human experience.
We need to know the algorithms the government uses to make important decisions about us
In criminal justice systems, credit markets, employment arenas, higher education admissions processes and even social media networks, data-driven algorithms now drive decision-making in ways that touch our economic, social and civic lives. These software systems rank, classify, associate or filter information, using human-crafted or data-induced rules that allow for consistent treatment across large populations.
But while there may be efficiency gains from these techniques, they can also harbor biases against disadvantaged groups or reinforce structural discrimination. In terms of criminal justice, for example, is it fair to make judgments on an individual’s parole based on statistical tendencies measured across a wide group of people? Could discrimination arise from applying a statistical model developed for one state’s population to another, demographically different population?

The Masses are Waking up, Nuit Debout Gatherings Spreading in Europe
Today on The Janssen Report: people are increasingly dissatisfied with the corruption and anti-social political decision-making in Europe. Nuit Debout is a new phenomenon that started in Paris on March 31st and is currently spreading to multiple countries (and numerous cities) in Europe. People gathering to discuss different topics on economics, politics and other matters they find of importance.
The corporate mainstream media hardly reports on it and if they do, they cover mostly the negative aspects (such as rioting).
I think it’s a very positive sign of the masses waking up to the harsh reality of fascism and economic slavery that we are facing.

In its article titled, How Corporate America Bought Hillary Clinton for $21M, The New York Post details the companies and organizations that paid Hillary in speaking fees from 2013-2015.
The total comes to $21.7 million, which is a remarkable sum for one of the least charismatic and unimaginative orators the world has ever known.
It’s enough to make you sick.

You can fully, and rightly, expect that these relationships will steer both her domestic and international policies toward war, repression, more economic disparity, more offshoring/outsourcing of jobs, and more abysmal misery for the working class in this country.
Russian diplomat: Euronews discredited by its English language service
The English language service of Euronews is discrediting the entire news television channel, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook account on Monday in comments on a screenshot of Russian foreign minister’s nonexistent Twitter account.
“As an official Russian reaction to a resolution adopted by the regional council of the Italian region of Veneto, urging to recognize the de-facto status of Crimea and lift anti-Russian sanctions, the English language website of the TV channel posted ‘a screenshot of Sergey Lavrov’s Twitter account’,” Zakharova wrote. “All is fine except for one thing – Sergey Lavrov has no Twitter account. The Russian language website, as you see, did not post the fake,” she went on.

World’s 16 biggest banks, including RBC, ordered to face Libor lawsuits in ruling court warns could ruin them
Sixteen of the world’s largest banks including JP Morgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. must face antitrust lawsuits accusing them of hurting investors who bought securities tied to Libor by rigging an interest-rate benchmark, a ruling that an appeals court warned could devastate them.
The appellate judges reversed a lower-court ruling on one issue — whether the investors had adequately claimed in their complaints to have been harmed — while sending the cases back for the judge to consider another issue: whether the plaintiffs are the proper parties to sue, in part because their claims, if successful, provide for triple damages that could overwhelm the banks.
It will be interesting to see how far this case is allowed to progress, as the rich rarely eat their own.

The Amazing Glyphosate Revolt Grows
There is an absolutely amazing international revolt against the most deadly and most widely used weed killer in world agriculture–glyphosate. Those of you who have followed my earlier writings can detect my feeling of pessimism that mere “democratic” grass-roots protest, combined with a scientific assessment from an agency of WHO that glyphosate was a “probable carcinogen” would be enough to stop the pending, twice-postponed EU Commission renewal of the expiring license for glyphosate in the EU. It almost doesn’t matter at this point what the ultimate vote is when the next EU Commission glyphosate meeting is convened. The genie is out of the bottle. One of the world’s most important eugenics projects to maim and ultimately reduce human population is on the brink of being banned much as DDT decades ago.
OBAMA LIFTS ARMS EMBARGO TO THE “POLICE STATE” OF VIETNAM
Don’t let anyone tell you Barack Obama’s a lame duck. Our CEO of war was recently spotted in Southeast Asia spreading around some of that famous peace and democracy.
Vice News reports:
US President Barack Obama announced on Monday that Washington would fully lift an embargo on sales of lethal arms to Vietnam, despite human rights organizations describing it as “among the world’s most repressive regimes.”
The decision to lift the arms trade ban, which followed intense debate within the Obama administration, suggested that US concerns about China’s assertiveness outweighed arguments that Vietnam had not done enough to improve its human rights record and that Washington would lose leverage for reforms.
The unrelenting state of siege against human and political rights by the Vietnamese government against its own people means absolutely nothing to President Obama, or the people around him; this is all about the money the US military/industrial complex will make off of the coming weapons sales to Vietnam.

Brainwashing Methods: How They Program Your Mind
YOU ARE BEING BRAINWASHED. You don’t have to like it, but most people do. There has always been an “opiate for the masses”. It is a necessary part of the civilized world. Imagine if everyone was running around with a free thinking mind of their own. People would work less and less, demanding more and more pay.

Fortunately, You don’t have to worry about that. You are being brainwashed.
Israeli Weimar: It Can Happen Here
The main sentence was: “If there is something that frightens me about the memories of the Holocaust, it is the knowledge of the awful processes which happened in Europe in general, and in Germany in particular, 70, 80, 90 years ago, and finding traces of them here in our midst, today, in 2016.”
All hell broke loose. What!!! Traces of Nazism in Israel? A resemblance between what the Nazis did to us with what we are doing to the Palestinians?
The Unraveling of Zionism?
Ideological movements, be they religious or secular, are demanding and Procrustean movements. By ideological movements I mean those that demand of their adherents resolute belief in some “deep set of truths” posited by a deity, by supposed immutable historical laws, or by some other equally unchallengeable source. Their followers, once initiated, or even just born into the fold, are expected to stay there and, as the saying goes, “keep the faith.”
However, in cultural, political and religious terms there are no eternal deep truths. History has an abrasive quality that erodes our beliefs in this god and that law. Though the process might take a longer or shorter time to manifest itself, yesterday’s faith will at some point start to ring less true. At some point followers start to fall away.
What Britain Forgot: Making Things Matters
At the root of this inability to stage a real recovery is the serious imbalance that has developed in the past few decades – namely, the over-development of the UK financial sector and the atrophy of manufacturing.

The Latest: Russia denies losing helicopters at Syrian base
The Russian military says it has called for a 72-hour cease-fire in Syria between government and opposition forces in two Damascus suburbs.
In a statement issued late Monday, Lt. Gen. Sergei Kuralenko says this would allow Russian war planes to carry out airstrikes against the Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of al-Qaida.

“PRE-CRIME” ARRIVES IN CHICAGO – BIG DATA TELLS COPS WHO’S NEXT TO BE SHOT
In Chicago, where homicides are out of control and estimated to top 550 in 2016 (the most since 2012), police are so desperate to correct the problem that they are throwing good old fashioned police work to the wind, and turning to ‘Minority Report’-esque algorithms to do the work for them.
Authorities assume that by narrowing down the key players that are most likely to be involved in violence will allow them to stop it. Of course, civil liberties being irrelevant in today’s world, the program is in use already. Police superintendent Eddie Johnson says that there is a small segment of people driving the violence, and although homicides are on the rise after three years of the program, the “Strategic Subject List” generated by the fourth revision of the algorithm is the answer to stopping them. Supporters of the program point to statistics such as 117 of the 140 people arrested in a drug and gang raid last week being on the list.
Grinding poverty, coupled with the offshoring/outsourcing of meaningful, well-paying jobs, are two of the biggest culprits in spawning violence in our inner cities, because in American society, if it is done intelligently and brutally enough, crime does pay.
The people living in America’s inner cities understand this, because they see politicians at the highest level of American government (literally) get away with murder, when it suits their political agenda, and can do it with absolute impunity.
While the “special interest list” may help a little, it does nothing to actually address the root causes of such violence at all, because the answers here are economic, and they cannot be resolved by more repressive policing, or more algorithms.
Rahm Emanuel’s tenure as mayor of this city has been an absolute, epic fail at every level, and the explosion of crime under his watch has been no exception.
Yet I have to wonder, just for speculation, and to “cement” her relationship to Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu at an even deeper level, if Hillary Clinton might be contemplating a Vice Presidential nomination for Mayor Emmanuel at the Democratic Convention, to utterly insure all the political clout of AIPAC is behind her, and her alone.
After all, he was senior adviser for policy and strategy in the Clinton Presidency.
Stranger things have happened in American politics, and right now, given the reality that Trump is pulling ahead of Clinton in the national polls, I would not bet against such a move.

Americans: A Conquered People: The New Serfs. “Russia and China stand between Washington and Washington’s Goal of Hegemony over the Entire World”
As readers know, I have seen some optimism in voters support for Trump and Sanders as neither are members of the corrupt Republican and Democratic political establishments. Members of both political establishments enrich themselves by betraying the American people and serving only the interest of the One Percent. The American people are being driven into the ground purely for the sake of more mega-billions for a handful of super-rich people.
Neither political party is capable of doing anything whatsoever about it, and neither will.

U.S. GOVERNMENT SECRETLY DESTROYED EVIDENCE IN TRIAL OF ACCUSED “9/11 MASTERMINDS”
In another setback for the death penalty trial of the five men accused of aiding the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, two defense lawyers for Khalid Shaikh Mohammed say the U.S. government secretly destroyed relevant evidence.
On May 11, defense lawyers for the accused mastermind of the 9/11 terror attacks asked for judge Col. James Pohl and the prosecution team to be recused from the trial, and for the case to be shut down. Defense lawyers David Nevin and Maj. Derek Poteet say that the U.S. government destroyed evidence related to the case, according to the New York Times. The two men are unable to provide further details because the issue is classified, but Mr. Nevin said the evidence was “favorable” to the defendants.
It is very clear to me that the evidence which was destroyed may well have exonerated Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and that was precisely why it was destroyed by the US government.

Pakistan summons US envoy over drone strike that ‘violated sovereignty’
Pakistan summoned US ambassador David Hale on Monday to express concern over the drone strike by American forces in Pakistani territory to kill Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour, which it said was a “violation of its sovereignty”.
According to a statement by the Foreign Office, special assistant to Prime Minister on foreign affairs Tariq Fatemi pointed out to the US envoy that the drone strike was a “violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and a breach of the UN’s Charter that guarantees the inviolability of the territorial integrity of its member states”.
Fatemi also emphasised that “such actions could adversely impact the ongoing efforts by the Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) for facilitating peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban”.
Is Saudi Arabia Going Broke?
Any informed observer, by now, should be fully aware that the Saudis are hurting financially. That is, they are hurting as much as any degenerate hedonistic ruling class of genetic royalty can be. But, while Saudi princes roll around in money and women and unspeakably depraved forms of entertainment and while they oversee a nation of slaves and prisoners, the bank accounts of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are now at a low point…
