Public Enemy Number One, The American Press – Stealing America’s Freedoms Like A Thief In The Night… – Gordon Duff

(VeteransVoice) – It’s 2010 and a few members of congress have noted that we have a corruption problem in Afghanistan.  Over a period of 9 years. $2.4 trillion dollars has been stolen with a dozen enquiries, dozens of reports, audits, all saying the same thing.  The “war on terror” was more “pickpocketing” and not so much “Osama bin Waldo.”  It’s 2010 and reports are trickling in that, just maybe, terrorist mastermind Osama has been dead for years and years.  More reports tell us, finally, that he never ran a terror organization at all.   For years, all those threats from a dead man.  What a pack of fools we are.

Remember Pat Tillman, the brave soldier, great athlete and hero?  The press told us he was killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan.  Then the rumors came out that it was “friendly fire.”  Now we know the truth or do we?  There is a movie about Tillman coming out.  How much will it tell?  Tillman, not just an athlete but a very bright guy, had picked up on the fact that Afghanistan was a total scam and was talking about it.  The administration ordered Tillman’s murder.  Pat Tillman was executed.  Enough high ranking members of the Bush administration and the military were involved in the cover up that, in any real democracy, not only jails would be filling but the execution dock as well.  Murder is a capitol crime.  Those involved in Tillman’s murder should be executed, no matter who they are.  We are talking about every conspirator and members of the press who helped “spin” the tale.

MSM: KGB man – MI5 agent told me that David Kelly had been ‘exterminated’

(UKDailyMail) – The mystery over the death of David Kelly took a further twist last night after a former KGB officer said he had evidence that the scientist did not commit suicide.

Boris Karpichkov, who worked as a Russian spy for 15 years before fleeing to Britain, has sent a dossier to Attorney General Dominic Grieve in which he claims to relay information from an ‘MI5 agent’ that Dr Kelly had been ‘exterminated’.

His move comes amid increasing calls from within the Coalition Government for a full, independent investigation into Dr Kelly’s death. Mr Grieve has indicated that he is ‘concerned’ by the growing scepticism among experts about the official version of events.

Dr Kelly was found dead in woods near his Oxfordshire home in July 2003, after the Government exposed him as the source of a BBC report questioning Tony Blair’s case for war in Iraq. Full article here

Dozens of U.S. Citizens on Assassination List, White House Adviser Hints

MSM: G20 law gives police sweeping powers to arrest people

(TorontoStar) – The province has secretly passed an unprecedented regulation that empowers police to arrest anyone near the G20 security zone who refuses to identify themselves or agree to a police search.

A 31-year-old man has already been arrested under the new regulation, which was quietly passed by the provincial cabinet on June 2.

The regulation was made under Ontario’s Public Works Protection Act and was not debated in the Legislature. According to a provincial spokesperson, the cabinet action came in response to an “extraordinary request” by Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair, who wanted additional policing powers shortly after learning the G20 was coming to Toronto.

Confirmed: Obama authorizes assassination of U.S. citizen – Glenn Greenwald

(Salon) – In late January, I wrote about the Obama administration’s “presidential assassination program,” whereby American citizens are targeted for killings far away from any battlefield, based exclusively on unchecked accusations by the Executive Branch that they’re involved in Terrorism.  At the time, The Washington Post‘s Dana Priest had noted deep in a long article that Obama had continued Bush’s policy (which Bush never actually implemented) of having the Joint Chiefs of Staff compile “hit lists” of Americans, and Priest suggested that the American-born Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was on that list.  The following week, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, Adm. Dennis Blair, acknowledged in Congressional testimony that the administration reserves the “right” to carry out such assassinations. Continue reading
