US displeased with Al Jazeera for planning to air documentary supporting that 9/11 was a false flag operation

The WIKILEAKS Public Library of US Diplomacy (PlusD) holds the world's largest searchable collection of United States confidential, or formerly confidential, diplomatic communications. As of April 8, 2013 it holds 2 million records comprising approximately 1 billion words. The collection covers US involvements in, and diplomatic or intelligence reporting on, every country on earth. It is the single most significant body of geopolitical material ever published. The PlusD collection, built and curated by WikiLeaks, is updated from a variety of sources, including leaks, documents released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and documents released by the US State Department systematic declassification review.


A cable back in September 9, 2008, depicts the US intense dissatisfaction for the intention of Al Jazeera to air "a German program presenting conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks." Furthermore, the US intense pressure forced Al Jazeera Director General to ensure that "the narration would make it clear to viewers that these were conspiracy theories that the documentary would serve to discredit."

In the comments we read that:

           The fact that Al Jazeera has decided to air this "documentary" demonstrates that the channel continues to indulge intermittently in sensationalism that will win no allies in its bid to expand into North American markets. Such actions could well reinforce the belief that Al Jazeera is more interested in feeding stereotypes than countering them.

Key points:

- PAO [Public Affairs Office] telephoned Al Jazeera Director General Wadah Khanfar on September 3, requesting an explanation of a promotion aired on Al Jazeera Arabic that day for a program that will run September 10 on the Al Jazeera Documentary channel called "The Other September." According to the promotion, the program will present alternate theories about the 9/11 attacks against the United States.

- Khanfar replied that he had not actually seen the documentary, which was produced by a German company, but that he had directed the AJ Documentary staff to provide a narrative voice-over that was "editorially balanced." Asked what that meant, Khanfar said the narration would make it clear to viewers that these were conspiracy theories that the documentary would serve to discredit.


Searching the web, we found that the cable probably refers to a 2008 German production documentary (above), which allegedly presents some evidence towards the theory that 9/11 was actually a false flag operation.

The cable is quite interesting because it reinforces the impression that there was an ongoing underground war between Al Jazeera and US officials concerning 9/11 documentaries that were far from the US official line. Recall that, only two weeks later, another cable intended to point out the US intense dissatisfaction about another 9/11 documentary aired by Al Jazeera, as well as secure some assurances that the channel would broadcast "appropriate documentaries" about 9/11 in the future.

Italy's 2 richest regions vote for greater autonomy from Rome

Image result for Veneto LombardyVeneto and Lombardy, the two wealthiest regions of Italy, have overwhelmingly voted in favor of greater autonomy from the central government in Rome, Reuters reported, citing early results of the two referendums. 

  Over 90 percent of voters are estimated to have cast their ballot in favor of autonomy in both regions.

Due to alleged hacker attacks on polling stations, the final counting of results is expected to take additional time. Although legally non-binding, the referendums could give the two regions, governed by the Eurosceptic, anti-immigrant and right-wing Northern League, more leverage in negotiations with Rome.


Clinton, Assange and the war on truth

Australia’s public broadcasting network gave Hillary Clinton an open mike to defame WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange as “a tool of Russian intelligence” without giving him a chance to respond.

by John Pilger

Part 1

On Oct. 16, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation aired an interview with Hillary Clinton: one of many to promote her score-settling book about why she was not elected President of the United States.

In The New York Times, there was a striking photograph of a female reporter consoling Clinton, having just interviewed her. The lost leader was, above all, “absolutely a feminist.” The thousands of women’s lives this “feminist” destroyed while in government — Libya, Syria, Honduras — were of no interest. Wading through the Clinton book, What Happened, is an unpleasant experience, like a stomach upset. Smears and tears. Threats and enemies. “They” (voters) were brainwashed and herded against her by the odious Donald Trump in cahoots with sinister Slavs sent from the great darkness known as Russia, assisted by an Australian “nihilist,” Julian Assange.

In New York magazine, Rebecca Trainster wrote that Clinton was finally “expressing some righteous anger.” It was even hard for her to smile: “so hard that the muscles in her face ache.” Surely, she concluded, “if we allowed women’s resentments the same bearing we allow men’s grudges, America would be forced to reckon with the fact that all these angry women might just have a point.

Drivel such as this, trivializing women’s struggles, marks the media hagiographies of Hillary Clinton. Her political extremism and warmongering are of no consequence. Her problem, wrote Trainster, was a “damaging infatuation with the email story.” The truth, in other words.

The leaked emails of Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, revealed a direct connection between Clinton and the foundation and funding of organized jihadism in the Middle East and Islamic State (known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh). The ultimate source of most Islamic terrorism, Saudi Arabia, was central to her career.

One email, in 2014, sent by Clinton to Podesta soon after she stepped down as U.S. Secretary of State, discloses that Islamic State is funded by the governments of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Clinton accepted huge donations from both governments for the Clinton Foundation.

As Secretary of State, she approved the world’s biggest ever arms sale to her benefactors in Saudi Arabia, worth more than $80 billion. Thanks to her, U.S. arms sales to the world – for use in stricken countries like Yemen – doubled.

This was revealed by WikiLeaks and published by The New York Times. No one doubts the emails are authentic. The subsequent campaign to smear WikiLeaks and its editor-in-chief, Julian Assange, as “agents of Russia,” has grown into a spectacular fantasy known as “Russiagate.” The “plot” is said to have been signed off on by Vladimir Putin himself. There is not a shred of public evidence.

Poll says 67% of US citizens don’t want to pull out of Iran deal

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he wants to “decertify” the agreement.

A CNN poll has found that 67 percent of U.S. citizens don’t want Washington to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week he wants to “decertify” the agreement, which would allow Congress to make changes to the multi-nation accord and potentially pull the country out of the historic deal.

"It would be a waste of time to respond to such blatherings and nonsensical remarks by the foul-mouthed U.S. president," Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in response to Trump's threat.

Only three out of 10 polled said they felt Iran posed a “very serious" threat to the United States, the lowest rate since 2000.

Of the over 1,000 people polled, 62 percent said they feel a “very serious” threat from North Korea, or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, DPRK.

Yet, an even larger number, 63 percent overall and 88 percent of Democrats, feel Trump has been “more reckless than responsible” in his rhetoric against the DPRK. An overall 57 percent of those asked “disapprove” of how Trump handles relations with the Asian country.

The CNN poll was conducted by SSRS via telephone.

Why Donald Trump is the perfect tool in the hands of neocons right now


Ten years passed from the shockingly revealing interview of the US retired General Wesley Clark to Democracy Now!, where he revealed that the US deep state was planning to go far beyond Iraq war, targeting six more countries. The US objective was to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran.

Apart from Iran, it appears that the ruthless neocons, more or less, achieved goals within the time schedule. Remember that they had to recruit the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama, to destroy Libya and Syria. Under Obama administration, the warmongering syndicate was forced to conduct proxy wars against both of these countries, apparently because the political and military cost of a direct invasion would be unbearable, even for the size of the US empire.

Yet, consider how difficult is now for the neocons to justify another devastating war. Apart from Iraq, they have to face more chaos in Libya and Syria, plus the Russian intervention, which, originally, was not within the schedule. It is doubtful whether they will achieve ultimate goals in the Middle East, and if they do, probably no one has an idea of how long will it take.

Today, thanks to continuous leaked information through WikiLeaks, various Whistleblowers and other insiders, the myths staged by the US empire collapse right at their beginning. As the Americans are turning their back to the mainstream media propaganda, once a key tool of the US war machine, the neocons will find almost impossible to push for another bloody war, even if it would have been conducted through proxies on behalf of the US.

Puppets like Obama won't work twice and things with Hillary in power would be even worse because, as she is definitely a pure product of the establishment, no one would believe any cheap excuses that would come out of her mouth in order to persuade the US public opinion for the necessity of another war.

But now, the ruthless neocon/neoliberal establishment has the right man in the right position to put the blame for that: Donald Trump.

Image result for trump iran

Despite that Trump was promoted as an 'anti-establishment' candidate, using intensively anti-interventionist rhetoric, he has already done the exact opposite. He has already bombed Syria, constantly provokes China and North Korea and, lately, does everything he can to destroy the Iran nuclear deal. It's more than obvious that he seeks to go after Iran, as the seventh target of the US empire, revealed by Wesley Clark.

The hypocritical clowns of the neoliberal apparatus were playing a good game. They were constantly attacking Trump, while at the same time, they couldn't wait to see him in power in order to promote their pro-war agenda through the back door.

So now, the neocons will hide behind him and watch their original plans fulfilled. Yet, it is still very difficult. With so many fronts opened and the chaos dominating in the Middle East, no one knows what forces would be unleashed in case of another direct or indirect conflict, this time against Iran.
