(1) LIBYA Belgian Journalist Cautions Viewer On Wars By US & Europe & Their “Media Lies” To Justify War (13:39) (French with English Subtitles) “Michel Collon a journalist cautions everyone by saying each war is preceded by the BIG “media lie”. He gives examples of “media lies”: Vietnam war & Gulf Of Tankin incident, Iraq & WMD lie & Alqaeda links, Kosovo & genocide, Afghanistan & 911 responsibility.” http://youtu.be/wRyr5w0i3fo
(2) LIBYA Brutus Nouri Al Masmari: Lies Of Gaddafi Paying African Mercenaries & Mercenary Jets 2.23.11 (4:01) – The Libya Secret: How West Cooked Up “People’s Uprising” – From Article: In October 2010, Qaddafi’s protocol chief, Nouri Al-Mesmari, arrived in France, purportedly for medical treatment. But he had his family with him, and the declared reason for his trip was a cover story. He almost immediately plunged into talks with the French and their intelligence service. He argued that Qaddafi was weak. He pointed out breaches inQaddafi’s national security shield that made it possible to take him down. http://youtu.be/jIEEgyf70ew
(3) The Nightmare of New Orleans /La Cauchmar de la Nouvelle Orleans (3:31) – A song about the criminally negligent response to Hurricane Katrina before, during, and after that catastrophe. There were grave warnings of possible disaster for New Orleans in the Times Picayune and National Geographic in the year before the tragic and deadly event. For many Americans, the militarization of the rescue mission was one of the most disconcerting aspects of the Bush-Cheney regime’s response to the flooding. FEMA even hired mercenaries from Blackwater to “restore order”. http://youtu.be/TNZHgsmmCWU
(4) Global Research TV: The Assassination of Gaddafi – GRTV Backgrounder The Corbett Report (11:40) : The killing of Muammar Gaddafi at the hands of NATO-backed, Al Qaeda-linked forces marks the end of a campaign expressly aimed at the assassination of a head of state and overthrow of a sovereign country in direct violation of international standards that have held sway since the Nuremberg trials at the end of World War II and the establishment of the Geneva Conventions. Find out more about the death of Gaddafi and the gears of the international “justice” system that was out to convict him from the start in this week’s GRTV Backgrounder. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zDY3jvcp44&feature=colike
(5) Global Research TV: Against AFRICOM – Cynthia McKinney Speaks Out on GRTV (15:11) – Established in 2007, the United States African Command (AFRICOM) has been at the heart of the US agenda to secure the continent and its resources against America’s supposed enemies. Now, many are questioning AFRICOM’s role on the continent at all.

(6) Martin Luther King, Jr.: “I Have a Dream…to Go to War?!” (3:13) “The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to end it must be ours.” Martin Luther King, Jr., speaking of Vietnam. This week the Pentagon sank to a new low: claiming that Dr. King would “understand” the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. King’s legacy is clear: he opposed war and other violence and condemned war as “an enemy of the poor.” Help us stop the Pentagon’s lies and attempts to justify the brutal, futile war in Afghanistan.

(9) Bosnia to Libya: 20 years of NATO ‘peacemaking’ – Russia Today Interview with Rick Rozoff, Editor of Stop NATO Website as “Humanitarian” Military Interventions (5:20) : “Two decades ago saw the start of Europe’s bloodiest military conflict since the Second World War. The Bosnian War and the break-up of the former Yugoslavia reignited ethnic conflicts between Muslims and Serbs. Over four years, around 100-thousand people were killed, and more than 4 million displaced. The war eventually saw NATO’s first-ever peace mission in its history – setting a template for incursions into foreign troublespots. Anti-NATO activist Rick Rozoff believes the Alliance’s current interventions make it hard for nations to resolve their conflict themselves.” http://youtu.be/tVED-kz6yV8

(12) Blowback or Bloody Treason – Truth Troubadour Channel on YouTube – The song was written by Vic Sadot after reading Crossing the Rubicon by Michael Ruppert, a former Los Angeles narcotics detective turned 9/11 Truth investigator. It calls for treating the events of 9/11 as a criminal act rather than simply accepting what politicians claim about the crime. Such questions as, who had the means, motive, and opportunity, are essential questions that any real-life, or any TV detective, such as Columbo, “Murder She Wrote”, or CSI Miami shows, must employ to solve a murder. They always ask who might benefit from the crime, and they do not eliminate any suspects who merit scrutiny under such relevant questions. “Blowback” is the term used by the CIA to describe when groups hit back at the US for its war and military intervention policies. Many liberal critics jumped comfortably into this explanation of 9/11 before investigations even began. However, the “blowback theory” does not confront the facts or contradict the “official conspiracy story” told by Bush and Cheney immediately after the attacks, nor the 9/11 Commission Report released in 2004. This song highlights the verifiable facts and the unanswered questions presented by 9/11 Truth scholars such as Michael Ruppert, Richard Gage, Steven Jones, David Ray Griffin, Kevin Ryan, and numerous others. http://youtu.be/3Xj63Op6-bM
(13) Courage To Resist – Truth Troubadour Channel on YouTube – A tribute to GI Resistance in 2011 by Vic Sadot, who was inspired especially by Private Bradley Manning and wiki leaks for exposing the lies, war crimes, and cover-ups of the corporate empire…crimes against humanity and their use of American citizens as their robotic servants. Bradley Manning, Nicole Mitchell, Marc Hall, and others give us hope for truth and justice. For, if they can stand up when already bound up by the military system & its culture of repression, then we can summon up the “Courage To Resist” too! “Long Live GI Resistance to the Lies & Tyranny!” Check out their real life stories of resistance at www.couragetoresist.org

(14) 9/11 TRUTH: Kevin Ryan Exposes Access for Demolition Crews to WTC Buildings by FederalJackTube4 (15:00) – Nine years after the attacks we are finally zeroing in on the people responsible. Kevin Ryan has been kicking ass and taking names, while the pseudo-savior Julian Assange censors cables dealing with Israel and calls 9/11 Truthers “annoying”. Assange staked the reputation of Wikileaks on the public never learning about Building 7. So ask yourself: Who would want to silence the biggest controversy in history? Why is Julian Assange doing this? Who is he? http://youtu.be/C_j3Kj0Tlec
Osama bin Laden: Dead or Alive? If he is dead, when did he die?
Was he really the “mastermind of 9/11”, or not?
How can we know the truth?
One thing we know is that Osama bin Laden was a CIA asset used to recruit Muslim fundamentalists to fight the Russians in Afghanistan. What else do we know for sure? Why would Obama claim to have ordered a kill on Osama, and then dispose of his body at sea? Does that sound like the American way of justice? Dr. David Ray Griffin published “Osama bin Laden Dead or Alive” in 2009. It’s a good read today! Evidence of fraud is abundant. The questions he raises need to be answered. http://noliesradio.org/archives/3230
The Corporate media spin machine has cranked out an avalanche of “reports” on the “daring” execution of a supposedly-alive Osama bin Laden hiding in a “million dollar mansion” in Pakistan. The story of the amazing commando raid may end up being another high-tech production from the same folks who brought us the lies about Pat Tillman, Jessica Lynch, & WMD in Iraq. In the case of Pat Tillman, the “official glory story” was that he got killed in a shoot out with the Taliban. Later, as the Tillman family bravely pressed on and on for the truth, the story was amended to be “friendly fire”. Then the military coroner report revealed that the evidence showed that Pat Tillman was shot “by 3 bullets to the forehead at 10 yards range”. Ignored AP story:
In the case of Jessica Lynch, she refused to go along with the “official glory story”. She testified to Congress that she was wounded by an explosion, not in a firefight. Iraqi hospital authorities informed the US military that she was alive and well and under their care. But the Pentagon sent a commando unit in there to “rescue the heroic soldier”. Was the truth less important than having a recruitment poster boy and girl to use to lie to young people about corporate resource & domination wars?
In the aftermath of 9/11, we were all in “shock & awe” as the media reported “explosions” at the WTC (World Trade Center) and the Pentagon. This was rapidly revised to the “official story” that the jet fuel from the planes that hit the two tallest towers of the WTC complex “melted the steel” and caused their collapse. It’s against the laws of physics! Both Dan Rather and Peter Jennings mused aloud as it was happening that the only way that steel frame buildings could be brought down by fire would be to “get at the inner structures” as in a “demolition”. What’s worse, the WTC buildings did not just collapse. They disintegrated to dust in less than 15 seconds! Building 7, which was not hit by a plane, did so in 10 seconds at around 5:30 that evening. In fact, on Sept 10, 2001 Dan Rather reported on CBS that Osama bin Laden was in a Pakistani military hospital getting dialysis treatments for kidney failure. Read about that here:
If you are asking yourself how “Muslim terrorists” could get access to the 3 WTC buildings to destroy them by demolition, that is a legitimate question. It also leads to the possibility that others would more likely have such access. Kevin Ryan, who worked for the company, Underwriters Laboratories Inc, that certified the steel in the WTC, lost his job when he raised questions about the government’s NIST report. He worked with a team of scientists associated with “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” to examine dust from the WTC. They published a scientific “peer review” paper that was completely ignored by the corporate media because it showed photos of microscopic particles that indicate that “nano thermate” was used in the demolition.
Read Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth at www.ae911truth.org Read about the peer review paper here:
Thermite is used in industrial demolitions. Adding sulfur makes it Thermate, which can melt steel. But only the US and some allied militaries would have access to “nano thermate”. Kevin Ryan recently wrote an article on the question of access to the WTC. Interview with Kevin Ryan: “Demolition Access to the World Trade Center” on Guns & Butter on KPFA on 1-10-11.
Bush and Cheney resisted having a Commission set up to investigate the events of 9/11 for almost two years. Only when victim family members, particularly a group known as “The Jersey Girls”, pressed on for the truth, did they create a commission. Bush named National Security Director Condoleezza Rice’s assistant, Philip Zelikow, to be Executive Director. A cover-up was predictable. Watch the movie about “The Jersey Girls”, “9/11: Press for Truth”, & discuss it with friends & family:
David Ray Griffin spent most of his life as a professor of theology. But once he began to investigate 9/11 he produced many good books on the subject and he has spoken all over the world about it. The “official story” was very useful propaganda in support of wars and repressive laws, which violate the Constitution. They are bad for Americans and even worse for the corporate empire’s victims. This “Guns & Butter” interview with Dr. David Ray Griffin by Bonnie Faulkner on KPFA about his book “Osama Bin Laden Dead of Alive” was originally broadcast in 2009. It was especially timely to re-broadcast this on May 2, 2011, a day after President Obama made a speech stating that he ordered a special ops unit into Pakistan to execute Osama bin Laden and to dump the body into the ocean. The President claimed he gave the order to dump the body of Osama bin Laden into the ocean out of respect for Muslim practice. Is such an act not closer to Mafia practice than Muslim practice? It certainly makes it impossible to verify that bin Laden was the one killed and that that was his body that they dumped at sea! DNA could have been acquired long ago during one of bin Laden’s hospital visits for kidney failure. How can we know the truth? By raising questions, demanding answers!
