the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Military reporter profiles 'like perusing the diary of your stalker'

Note the clinical language. Our world is a mind-control experiment, and we are the lab rats. - ed.

By David Axe

On Monday, Stars & Stripes broke the news that U.S. military media handlers in Afghanistan have been rating embedded reporters according to their sympathy towards U.S. war aims. Turns out this was an open secret among veterans of the Kabul beat. P.J. Tobia got his hands on his profile months ago, according to his piece in True/Slant.

“Rating the coverage that reporters give the military — “positive,” “neutral,” “negative” — seems a bit silly and slightly Orwellian, but if thousands of reporters were covering my organization, I would want a simple shorthand to identify them as well,” Tobia wrote. “I do think the reports are creepy though. These guys have read almost everything I’ve written in the last few years, even interviews I’ve given to local news blogs. Reading this report is like perusing the diary of your stalker.”

Tobia helpfully quotes portions of his profile:

Tobia continues to humanize U.S. soldiers by quoting mainly U.S. military personnel and detailing the soldiers’ backgrounds, homes and reaction to fighting in Afghanistan.

His most recent article is neutral-to-positive while his previous work has been neutral or neutral-to-negative. …

[Tobia's] articles on Afghanistan focused on multiple topics that included, narcotics use, detainee abuse, the ‘hearts and minds’ mission, the development of the ANSF [Afghan National Security Forces] as well as the overall cost of the US mission in Afghanistan. He produced two articles that were originally published in The Washington Post and Nashville Scene but were later picked up by New York’s left-leaning Village Voice and Florida’s New Times. …

Based on his previous embed and past reporting, it is unlikely that he will miss an opportunity to report on U.S. military missteps. However, if following previous trends, he will remain sympathetic to U.S. troops and may acknowledge a learning curve in Afghanistan.


Swine flu fear mongering a mass psy-op?

By Andrew W. Griffin

Red Dirt Report, editor

Posted: August 27, 2009

OKLAHOMA CITY – Here at Red Dirt Report headquarters, we have been closely monitoring this swine flu (H1N1) situation, called a Level 6 “pandemic” by the questionable World Health Organization.

As previously reported here at Red Dirt Report, IPS Research, located in downtown Oklahoma City, has started their clinical trials of the experimental swine flu vaccine as offered by drugmakers Novartis and Sanofi-Aventis.

Adults and children are being urged by IPS Research to take part in the trials. Of course, we noted that dangerous ingredients including squalene (an oil-based adjuvant) and thimerosal (mercury) will be in each dose. This, despite many reports over the years regarding the horrific side effects both ingredients can lead to.

A story linked at Red Dirt Report called “Vaccine may be more dangerous than swine flu,” featured at in July and written by Dr. Russell Blaylock, notes that the mysterious virus is an “enigma for virologists.” Quoting a scientist as written in Nature magazine, “Where the hell it got all these genes from, we don’t know.” What does that mean? Well, virologists have discovered the H1N1, aka swine flu, has avian flu virus, 1918 H1N1 virus and two new H3N2 virus genes from Eurasia.

Sounds like somebody has been having a little too much fun in a biolab somewhere. And we don’t say that lightly. One of the companies that has been working with WHO to create a pandemic vaccine is Baxter Pharmaceuticals which earlier this year sent seasonal flu vaccine mixed with deadly avian flu virus to countries in Europe. There has never been any thorough explanation how this mistake happened and there are no reports that Baxter, with American offices in Illinois, was reprimanded or fined for this potentially deadly mistake. Fortunately, scientists in Czech Republic discovered this problem before it was sent out any further.

Israeli Organ Harvesting: The New "Blood Libel"?

August 28, 2009

Last week Sweden’s largest daily newspaper published an article containing shocking material: testimony and circumstantial evidence indicating that Israelis may have been harvesting internal organs from Palestinian prisoners without consent for many years.

Worse yet, some of the information reported in the article suggests that in some instances Palestinians may have been captured with this macabre purpose in mind.

In the article, “Our sons plundered for their organs,” veteran journalist Donald Bostrom writes that Palestinians “harbor strong suspicions against Israel for seizing young men and having them serve as the country’s organ reserve – a very serious accusation, with enough question marks to motivate the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to start an investigation about possible war crimes.”1/

An army of Israeli officials and apologists immediately went into high gear, calling both Bostrom and the newspaper’s editors “anti-Semitic.” The Israeli foreign minister was reportedly “aghast” and termed it “a demonizing piece of blood libel.” An Israeli official called it “hate porn.”

Commentary magazine wrote that the story was “merely the tip of the iceberg in terms of European funded and promoted anti-Israel hate.” Numerous people likened the article to the medieval “blood libel,” (widely refuted stories that Jews killed people to use their blood in religious rituals). Even some pro-Palestinian writers joined in the criticism, expressing skepticism.

The fact is, however, that substantiated evidence of public and private organ trafficking and theft, and allegations of worse, have been widely reported for many years. Given such context, the Swedish charges become far more plausible than might otherwise be the case and suggest that an investigation could well turn up significant information.

Below are a few examples of previous reports on this topic.

Kawther Salam: Night of Israeli horror in Jerusalem hospital

The roots and the horror of this crime date back to June 2, 1994, when the Israeli Special Forces and other IDF soldiers, the so called (border Police) stormed the surgery, maternity and pediatric wards of the Palestinian hospital Augusta Victoria (generally known as “al-Motala”) in Jerusalem while they were looking for the BODY of a Palestinian who they mistakenly thought had arrived at that hospital.

Back then, the Israeli military censorship in “Beit Agron”, the so-called Government Press “GPO”, currently headed by Danial Seaman, censored my report about the night of terror experienced by doctors, nurses, patients and guests during the IDF incursion to their rooms, putting their lives at big risk.

  • Why did the military censorship ban my report from being published in Al-Quds newspaper in Jerusalem, where I worked as a journalist and investigator? Was it not true, or did they just not like what they read?
  • Has the military censorship thought even for a while that I would keep my right to publish my report about the unwarranted IDF crime in the Augusta Victoria Hospital, even 15 years later, and that censoring is not the right way to deal with journalists?
  • A copy of my report, which was censored back then, can be seen in the scan of the article, which is stamped in Hebrew by the military censor as “publication not allowed”.

After 42 years of living under the Israeli military laws, under the unjust laws of the British mandate which ended in 1948 but still used illegally by the Israeli occupation in the occupied West Bank until today, the Palestinian publications (newspapers, magazines, publishing houses and advertising, … etc.) must present all material to Israeli military censorship 24 hours before publishing. The IDF censor is the only one who approves or disapproves the publication of an article.

Anatomy of a SWAT from a lawyer's perspective - by Lucille Compton

Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi, one of the most influential figures in modern social and political activism, considered these traits to be the most spiritually perilous to humanity. [2]

• Wealth without Work
• Pleasure without Conscience
• Science without Humanity
• Knowledge without Character
• Politics without Principle
• Commerce without Morality
• Worship without Sacrifice

Most of us know the term “SWAT” as a reference to an inter-agency team of enforcement personnel who engage in operations to put drug lords and other illegal groups out of business using sophisticated weaponry and state-of-the-art intelligence-gathering methods. A client of mine uses "swat" operation when referring to a complex series of seemingly unrelated actions by a series of governmental agencies, including agencies of judicial, executive and legislative branches, often with the participation and assistance of private individual or corporate informants, to profit from the destruction, silencing, asset seizure or blackmail of an individual or company who is out of favor with or has offended some individual or group in power. The purpose of the swat operation is to satisfy the goals of one or more private special interest groups or governmental covert operations, or both. Ghandi’s perceptive observation about the traits most spiritually harmful to humanity, in a few words, goes a great distance in explaining what the point of the swat operation is. I have spent the last seven years of my practice witnessing, and attempting to deal with, the legal aspects of swat operations apparently conducted at both federal and state levels, in all branches of government, with the assistance of government contractors and unwitting participants alike.

The most challenging aspect of this type of practice is convincing those who are targets [3] or witnesses of the swat operation that it does, in fact, exist. After all, covert operations are conducted under cover. The very nature of a successful covert operation is to achieve its goals without the general public’s being aware that a single force is responsible for what appears to be a series of unrelated events. In my experience, the bigger the lie, the easier it is to pull off.

Let us think of the covert or swat operation as having two primary “teams”:

(1) the covert, willful perpetrators, and those who deliberately or unwittingly assist them (other “participants”), referred to as the “swat team,” and

(2) the “target team,” comprised of the target and the target’s friends, family members, business colleagues and legal and other contractors hired to deal with the swat operation.

As will become clear, it is not necessary to the success of a covert operation that each participant on the swat team has the same or even similar interests to those of other participants, that participants belong to the same political party or recognized social class, or even that the participants know each other. It is also true that individuals not infrequently operate on both teams. Likewise, oftentimes, members of the target’s team search in vain for reasons to believe that there is no swat, but rather a series of unfortunate events brought on by the failure of the target to be perfect. As one of my clients is fond of saying, “there’s always a parking ticket.” This form of denial arises from a false understanding of how the larger economic and social systems operate and often is strong enough to survive despite even overwhelming evidence to contradict the party line put forth by members of the swat team.

xymphora: no evidence

Of course, there is 'no evidence' for the New Blood Libel, as the only evidence for it is the testimony of Palestinians. Unfortunately, Palestinians, being sub-human - like blacks and women used to be - aren't qualified to give evidence, and no matter how many say the same thing, the statement of one Jew - not just a human being, but a Supreme Human Being - is enough to make the whole issue a matter of anti-Semitic group defamation. This despite the fact that in the whole context of what Jews do to Palestinians on a daily basis, and with great joy and gusto, stealing organs is an almost inconsequential Evil.

Sweden, August 27, 2009 (Pal-Telegraph) - New York lawyer sues Swedish newspaper: A lawyer in New York has sued the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet following its article accusing Israeli soldiers of smuggling dead Palestinians' organs.

The Israeli lawyer Guy Ophir, based in New York, has submitted a civil action to the New York State Supreme Court, the TT news wire wrote.

He's claiming $7.5 million in damages against Aftonbladet because of the harm the tabloid has caused Jews and Israelis, himself included, he wrote in his writ.

Australia: insurance companies balk at covering doctors who give the vaccine

the wonder ball goes round and round to catch it quickly you are bound if you're the one to hold it last i fear for you the game is past and you...are...out! - ed.

Just stick the Aussie taxpayers with the bill.

Via: Sydney Morning Herald:

THE Federal Government’s plan to immunise the population against swine flu is in chaos because insurers may not cover doctors who administer the jab.

Inadequate testing and the possibility of spreading other infections means there is too high a risk patients will sue, the insurers say.

Despite weeks of crisis talks, the Government has refused to underwrite doctors’ liability for the vaccinations and medical groups say the program – due to start as early as mid-September – cannot proceed unless doctors are insured.

The president of the Australian Medical Association, Andrew Pesce, said: ”The indemnity issue needs to be sorted out or else the vaccination program won’t go ahead … In the environment we’re in, someone has to be held accountable for rare vaccine reactions that may occur …

”If the Government decides there is a priority need to roll out the vaccine, then it has a duty to indemnify the doctors who provide it.”

CDC & FDA stats predict 30,000 serious potentially lethal adverse reactions to vaccine

that doesn't include the bad reactions that "nobody could have predicted" - ed.


This means that if the entire U.S. population is vaccinated (a stated goal of the CDC), we are to assume as a fact that 30,000 Americans will suffer debilitating or lethal side effects. Apparently the CDC considers this an acceptable level of collateral damage.

As unthinkable as this is (destroying or ending the lives of as many as 30,000 Americans), that is only part of the story.

The novel H1N1 vaccine being developed must adhere to guidelines set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has announced that a vaccine will be accepted if it creates antibodies in 4 out of 10 recipients (40%), with at least 70 percent of those 4 achieving an antibody level believed to provide benefit. This means that an acceptable vaccine candidate would provide “protection” for 28% of vaccine recipients (70% of the 40%), or less than 3 in 10 recipients. The requirement drops to 18% efficacy for those over 65 years of age (60% of 30%).

So here are the facts, as documented by the CDC and the FDA:

As many as 30,000 Americans will be harmed by the novel H1N1 vaccine.

The vaccine may be ineffective in more than 7 out of 10 recipients.

VA medical center will fire employees unless they take flu shot

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Area Medical Center employees must get seasonal flu shots this year or risk losing their jobs.

All CAMC Health System workers must get vaccinated by Dec. 15 or their employment will be terminated, CAMC said in its August newsletter Vital Signs.

"The strongest recommendation that's out there is to take the vaccine every year," CAMC Director of Epidemiology Terrie Lee said Tuesday. "Our board of trustees and administrators had been discussing this for a couple years. We decided this year to make it a mandatory process for all of our employees."

Employees may submit a request for accommodation due to health reasons, such as allergies to a component of the flu vaccine. They have until Sept. 15 to do so, and if requests are confirmed, those employees would have to wear a mask over their nose and mouth while at work during flu season, the newsletter said.

IOF kidnapps 13 Palestinians from West Bank

Israeli troops kidnapped 13 Palestinian civilians on Thursday during pre dawn invasions targeting a number of West Bank communities. Local Palestinian sources said that the attacks were reported in Qalqilia and Salfet, northern West Bank, Ramallah, in central West Bank, Bethlehem and Hebron in the south in addition to Jericho City.

The Israeli military radio announced that the all of the 13 men were taken to detention camps for questioning and they were on what the army calls its "wanted list."

In June the Israeli military said it would stop invading the cities of Ramallah and Qalqilia, as well as Bethlehem and Jericho. However, since then the army has never stopped its attacks targeting those cities.


Goldman subpoenaed on huddles

William Galvin, Massachusetts’s chief financial regulator, has subpoenaed Wall Street firm Goldman Sachs Group Inc., demanding information on the firm’s weekly trading huddles between its research analysts and traders.

Mr. Galvin, the Massachusetts secretary of the commonwealth, said he is concerned that the huddles, in which Goldman’s research staff give verbal short-term stock tips to the firm’s traders and then its clients, disadvantage some Goldman customers.

“We have concerns about the research analysts and the efforts under way to use them to secure additional business,” Mr. Galvin said on Wednesday.

a hate-filled morning

Middle East News Service comments: Sometimes it is the role of a news service to report the news of the future. The name Silwan is not all that well known outside the circle of those who have an intensive interest in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. But it is a name to remember. As the Ir Amim [city of nations] people explained it to me last year in Jerusalem this is where there is an intensive effort by settlers to move in the middle of an Arab neighbourhood. The project is tied in with a lot of archeological work exploring the “City of David” as it is known in Hebrew. Just how much hatred is there already is explored by Meron Rapoport in an article he contributed to Haokets [The Sting], a left-wing website concerned primarily with issues of social inequality and human rights.

someone please explain audits to tim geithner

In an interview released today by Digg and the Wall Street Journal, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner was pressured about the growing popular movement to Audit the Fed spearheaded by Texas Congressman Ron Paul. A visibly uncomfortable Geithner attempts to dismiss the question by stating “I’m sure people understand that you want to keep politics out of monetary policy.” When Geithner is again pressed on the issue, he makes the stunning assertion that conducting an audit of the Federal Reserve—something never before done in its 96 year history—is a “line that we don’t want to cross,” proclaiming that such a move would be “problematic for the country.”

swine flu psyops breaks down on the road

Feds put focus on swine flu vaccines

Federal authorities plan to initiate a nationwide campaign in the coming weeks to persuade Americans to get the swine flu vaccine and to erase any public skepticism about the flu's danger and the safety of immunizations.

Even as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has manufacturers working overtime to produce a vaccine for the swine flu by mid-October, government officials are concerned that demand for immunization will not be high. In particular, parents participating in focus groups this summer expressed concern that ramping up vaccine production would make it less safe than the seasonal flu vaccine.

Half of Hong Kong health workers would likely refuse vaccine

About half of Hong Kong's health workers would refuse the swine flu vaccine, new research says, a trend that experts say would likely apply worldwide. In a study that polled 2,255 Hong Kong health workers this year, researchers found even during the height of global swine flu panic in May, less than half were willing to get vaccinated.

Most said they would pass on the swine flu shot, which is not yet available, because they were afraid of side effects and doubted how safe and effective it would be.

Doctors and nurses are on the swine flu front lines — and if they become infected, they may not only spread the disease to patients, but their absence from work could cripple health systems.

CDC distances itself from flu gloom

(CBS/ AP) U.S. government health officials are urging Americans not to panic over estimates that up to 90,000 people might die in the United States from swine flu this year.

"Everything we've seen in the U.S. and everything we've seen around the world suggests we won't see that kind of number if the virus doesn't change," Dr. Thomas Frieden, head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a C-SPAN interview taped Wednesday.

While the swine flu seems quite easy to catch, it so far has not been more deadly than the flu strains seen every year during the cold months: many people have only mild illness. Also, close genetic tracking of the new virus as it circled the globe during the past five months so far has shown no sign that it is mutating to become more virulent.

Still, the CDC has been preparing for a worst-case flu season as a precaution - in July working from an estimate slightly more grim than one that made headlines this week - to make sure that if the virus should suddenly worsen or vaccination plans should fall through, health authorities would know how to react.

On Monday the White House released a report from a group of presidential advisers that included a scenario where anywhere from 30 per cent to half the 300 million Americans could catch what doctors call the "2009 H1N1" flu; the extrapolation said death possibilities ranged from 30,000 to 90,000. In a regular flu season, up to 20 per cent of the population is infected and 36,000 die.

"We don't think that's the most likely scenario," CDC flu specialist Dr. Anne Schuchat said of the presidential advisers' high-end tally.

What's really expected this year? CDC will not speculate, finding a numbers game pointless as it tries to balance getting a largely complacent public to listen to its flu instructions without exaggerating the threat.

Along with how the virus itself continues to act, the ultimate toll depends on such things as vaccinations beginning as planned - currently set for mid-October - and whether the people who need them most get them.

CBS News medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton reports that the Obama administration is pushing health officials to see if the immunization program can be accelerated.

Under the current plans, people who get their first shots in mid-October wouldn't actually be fully immunized until around Thanksgiving, after booster shots, reports Ashton. She calls the government's goal of immunizing some 195 million Americans by the end of the year, considering manufacturers' capacity to produce the drugs, "definitely ambitious".

CDC also is working to help hospitals keep the not-so-sick from crowding emergency rooms and to properly target anti-flu drugs to the most vulnerable.

What is likely: A busy flu season that starts earlier than usual, Schuchat told The Associated Press. This new H1N1 strain never went away during the summer, infecting children at camps during midyear schools in particular. Already clusters of illnesses are being reported at some schools and colleges around the country.

Dr. Ott: the engineering of "pandemics"


Moreover, the ONLY WAY a modern “SWINE FLU PANDEMIC” can actually materialize is by injection of certain LIVE VIRUSES via vaccine needles. Make no mistake, the world is NOT experiencing a true pandemic explosion at this time ­ but it most assuredly WILL when and if the planned mass influenza vaccinations are completed worldwide.


This is just one problem with the headlong, mad rush to vaccinate Americans with a series of reverse-engineered lab-created viruses, attenuated or otherwise, in an UNTESTED, UNTRIED, EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE that has not been subjected to LONG-TERM CLINICAL TRIALS TO DETERMINE THE LEVELS OF “DRIFT” or even ATTENUATED TENDENCIES OVER TIME.

To supposedly minimize this “safety” issue, the CDC is now recommending a DUPLEX vaccination, of all things. A “duplex” vaccination basically involves a two-shot series. The first shot consists of a VERY WEAK, HIGHLY ATTENUTATED dose of the live virus.

This is intended to create an initial immune response patterning the specific virus injected. Within a couple of weeks of the 1st shot, a BOOSTER SHOT is given. The booster shot has only lightly attenuated, or even FULL STRENGTH VIRUSES in the injection. This 2nd shot is then intended to create a full-strength immune system response in the human subject.

This is, at the very least, BAD SCIENCE and borders on insanity for self-evident and fairly obvious reasons. By their own admissions, the NIH scientists in their various writings have declared that the level of potency of these REVERSE ENGINEERED VIRUSES show abnormal, almost RANDOM tendencies in their attenuated states. Nobody really knows what will happen over time as the inevitable “genetic drifts” occur. It is a literal crap shoot. It is highly probable that even the HIGHLY ATTENUATED FRANKEN-VIRUSES can swiftly regain their FULL POTENCY even in the presence of ether and formaldehyde. (See Addendum Below) Secondly, the full-strength BOOSTER shot viruses could just as easily “DRIFT” into something much more deadly than the “original’ recombinant virus that it is targeting.

I submit that the scientists responsible for this “pandemic” are not stupid. They have to know these facts as well as I do.

million times more squalene in H1N1 vaccine than the one that caused gulf war syndrome

"...So, as you see, there is no confusion with regard to swine flu and bird flu viruses. But there is another important consideration: the role of squalene.
The average quantity of squalene injected into the US soldiers abroad and at home in the anthrax vaccine during and after the Gulf War was 34.2 micrograms per billion micrograms of water.

Up to half of family doctors do not want to be vaccinated against swine flu.

GPs will be first in the line for the jabs when they become available but many will decline, even though they will be offering the vaccine to their patients.

More than two thirds of those who will turn the jab down believe it has not been tested enough. Most also believe the flu has turned out to be so mild in the vast majority of cases that the vaccine is not needed.

Last night Government experts criticised GPs who decide not to have the jab, saying they will put vulnerable patients needlessly at risk.

from 2002: organ warehouse


State Attorney General Elyakim Rubinstein ordered police to launch an investigation against Prof. Yehuda Hiss, the nation's senior pathologist and director of the Abu Kabir Forensic Institute.

Hiss is accused of a long list of charges from inappropriate behavior as a medical professional to criminal acts such as the illegal sale of and dealings in organs and body parts, removing organs from deceased persons without consent, and misrepresenting organs in returned bodies.

Allegations made against Hiss in some cases include his taking organs without consent, placing the cardboard center of toilet paper rolls and metallic rods in their place to fill the voids in the body and hide the theft of the organs.

A court-ordered search of the institute revealed large supplies of stored organs taken illegally from bodies. Over the past years, heads of the institute appear to have given thousands of organs for research without permission, while maintaining a "storehouse" of organs at Abu Kabir.

Organs belonging to soldiers killed in various circumstances were found in the institute during a surprise search this week. After consulting with Chief Chaplain Brig. Gen. Rabbi Yisrael Weiss, it was decided that in concert with the bereaved families, graves would be opened and the organs buried along with the remains of each soldier involved.

you know it's a pr problem when npr has to cover it


VINCENT: Yeah, I never thought about purchasing an organ until my father got sick with cirrhosis of the liver. And I realized during that ordeal before he died, that the real crime in the country, and listening to Nancy talk about the whole system in the world, is that we do not pay for organs. And there is not a system set up to compensate people who are willing and able to donate organs for the people that are on these waiting lists.

CONAN: And what happened with your dad?

VINCENT: Well, the system is so bad, it's fragmented. I think Nancy touched on that. Depending where you are in the world, (unintelligible) and depending on how sick you are, you can wait an inordinate amount of time until you die, or you can sell everything, and pick up, and move to another state and hopefully get on another list, which is what they had to do in my case, my father's case. And we had looked into trying to purchase these things illegally, but you know, there's not really, like, a Web site you can go to and order these things online.

But it was so frustrating and horrible that there was this dichotomy about people who think that the moral stand to have these organs for sale, and while they're on their high horse saying that, people are dying.

CONAN: And as I understand it…

VINCENT: It doesn't make any sense.


Dr. SCHEPER-HUGHES: Liver is not that long. Liver is actually - but I know often it's so precarious, you need the liver very quickly, but I guess I have to ask you a very tough question. Why didn't someone in your family offer to give half a liver rather than buy it from a demolished person? No one is going to sell half a liver unless they're so desperate that they're under a kind of a death threat themselves.

VINCENT: Right. We were not told about that option and did not know about that until after my father had died. [and we never thought it up ourselves??? never occurred to any of them???? wow. - ed.]

Dr. SCHEPER-HUGHES: I'm very sorry to hear that.

VINCENT: There was an information disconnect, too, in terms of the family, and you know, from family members who are dealing with this, there's so much stress, of course…


CONAN: Yeah.

VINCENT: …and frustration. But we were not even told of that option. I did not learn of it until after he had passed away.

CONAN: Vincent…

Dr. SCHEPER-HUGHES: Unfortunately, I should tell you there are ways that are very problematic, and I think you would agree. There was, until I closed it down, a Web site in China that would sell livers and - even from living people, but mostly from executed prisoners. And selling a half of your liver is not something that any righteous transplant surgeon would take part in, in taking a half of a liver. That's something that a very dear, close loved one who's totally screened and taken care of and protected afterwards. You don't just take a stranger and take a half a liver and send them back to a slum somewhere in the world.

FED must release reports on emergency bank loans

Aug. 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve must make records about emergency lending to financial institutions public within five days because it failed to convince a judge the documents should be exempt from the Freedom of Information Act.

Manhattan Chief U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska rejected the central bank’s argument that the records aren’t covered by the law because their disclosure would harm borrowers’ competitive positions. The collateral lists “are central to understanding and assessing the government’s response to the most cataclysmic financial crisis in America since the Great Depression,” according to the lawsuit that led to yesterday’s ruling.

if they think you're gonna zig, you better zag. - ed.

by Peter Chamberlain


The bastardization of Prof. Seligman’s work has given military planners either a faulty understanding of the concept of “learned helplessness,” or mistaken notions of turning a form of temporary insanity into a useable weapon. Bringing together two virtual reality engineers from India, Dr. Alok R. Chaturvedi (an early developer of the sims program) and Shailendra Raj Mehta, with an Israeli psychologist Daniel Kahneman, an expert in behavioral economics, to adapt computer-modeling to the weaponized theories of Seligman, the result was SEAS, (synthetic environment for anlaysis and simulation).

The SEAS program is a hopelessness predictor. Running scenarios for the military, determining probabilities, it theorizes the outcomes of psychological warfare operations, predicting when people would be ready to break-down emotionally and when they were just borderline unstable.

The Sentient World Simulation (SWS) is a “synthetic mirror of the real world with automated continuous calibration with respect to current real-world information.” The SWS computer simulation allows military leaders to:

“develop and test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners. By applying theories of economics and human psychology, its developers believe they can predict how individuals and mobs will respond to various stressors.”

Homeland Security and the Defense Department are already using it to simulate crises. They try to anticipate how stressed-out populations can be manipulated by increasing the fear and anxiety-induced helplessness, through the introduction of panic-causing events, like earthquakes, tsunamis and terrorist attacks. Sound familiar, to anyone? Sounds like the fear-mongering basis of the whole “war on terror,” doesn’t it?

“The intent is to ‘…test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners. By applying theories of economics and human psychology, its developers believe they can predict how individuals and mobs will respond to various stressors…” They try to anticipate how stressed-out populations can be manipulated by increasing the fear and anxiety-induced helplessness, through the introduction of panic-causing events.

Must Read: James' blog at Winter Patriot: How people who challenge the system can defend themselves

The other day, McJ put up a link to a story of a New Zealand journalist, Clare Swinney, who was incarcerated in a psychiatric hospital against her will for 11 days. She had written about the truth of 9/11 and had sent DVDs to television station personnel showing this truth. She also accused these people of lying about this truth. I felt very disturbed after reading this story because it brought to mind experiences of my own and of friends of mine who have fought for justice for themselves and others. The experiences don't match exactly Clare Swinney's, of course, but they are similar in that the weight of the State/Medical/Judicial/Police/Criminal complex has been brought down on me and my friends who are victims, supporters and/or whistle blowers. The results to varying degrees have included severe psychological stress and burnout; severe physical assaults and injuries and the loss of careers, health, money and freedom.

I mention the above experiences because I will be making some recommendations to people who are challenging the system (or may in the future) and some of these recommendations may sound risky or even dangerous. But I want to show that I am aware of the consequences of these actions and I don't recommend them lightly. They come from experience and I believe them to be, in fact, the safest way to handle “unwanted attention from the authorities”. These encounters are always scary. Don't kid yourself otherwise. But by preparing a strategy beforehand and adopting the attitude that in the immortal words of Jason Bourne, “this isn't just some story in a newspaper. This is real”, you will give yourself the best chance of maintaining the maximum level of power over your circumstances possible.

Clare Swinney repeated some of the mistakes that I have made and some that my friends have made in other situations. So I will use her story to illustrate what I am talking about. Of course, it would make it easier to follow my arguments and recommendations if you have read Clare's story beforehand. It, too, is rather long I'm afraid, so take a cut lunch with you but save a sandwich for when you get back here!

I am going to use Clare's testimony of her reactions and behaviours as examples of what not to do. There will be a few “shoulds” in my advice. I do not mean this in any way as a criticism of Clare. We all learn the hard way most of the time. I certainly have. Clare has published this account of hers, so I assume she wants others to use it and benefit. And full marks to her for doing so! This takes courage. Though this scenario deals with a psychiatric committal, the tactics and advice can be generalised to many other threatening situations. Whether you agree with my points or not, I hope you will have benefited from thinking through this situation in advance.
So on to Clare's story then:-

Must Read: Irish4Palestine: ILLEGAL ORGAN TRADING - It's Israel's fault, not Sweden's

Israel’s Self Inflicted Dilemma

The story of 19 year old Bilal Achmed Ghanan has brought more scrutiny onto Israel's illegal organ trade operation. We now know that Israel's blakc market organ trading stretches outside of the US state of New Jersey and directly into Palestine.

The recent article on Israeli Organ Stealing from dead or captured Palestinians published in a Swedish newspaper has sent the Zionists into a “freak-out frenzy” which, I am finding quite comical. For all of the Zionist huffing and puffing and self righteous pontificating, calling for Sweden to “condemn” the printing of said article, but no matter, the real problem is not the fault of this article being published, for the problem is with Israel, not Sweden.

Here’s why. Israel is not seen as an honest entity, and that is not the fault of Sweden or any article written about Israel. Israel has created its own reality, the world has seen Israel’s refusal to admit to any of the atrocities it has clearly committed, many of which have been witnessed by millions of the worlds people. We all saw the genocide in Gaza, the white phosphorous, the DIME missiles, the tanks, the destruction of homes, hospitals, mosques, UN schools, and the death toll of over a thousand civilians and 400 children.

But as always, poor Israel is the victim and the whole world is suffering from Anti-Semitism. I wrote about this organ harvesting the other day and immediately had a visit from one of the many outraged Zionist propaganda filth spreaders who made this comment:

dangerous development: Iran discovers vast new oil reserves

Iran has discovered more than 8.8 billion barrels of oil in four layers of reserves in the country's southwestern Susangerd oil field.

"These reserves were discovered after drilling through all the new layers of reserves, to a depth of 5,026 meters (16,489.5 ft), and the expected and possible amount of reserves in this field is over 8.83 billion barrels," Iran's Oil Minister Gholam-Hossein Nozari said in a statement on Monday.

The minister described the field as the most significant discovery in the past 5 years. "The development of this field can play an effective role in raising the crude oil production in the country," he said in the statement.

6 jewish companies own 96% of world media


These are the facts of Jewish media control in America. Anyone willing to spend several hours in a large library can verify their accuracy. I hope that these facts are disturbing to you, to say the least. Should any minority be allowed to wield such awesome power? Certainly, not and allowing a people with beliefs such as expressed in the Talmud, to determine what we get to read or watch in effect gives this small minority the power to mold our minds to suit their own Talmudic interests, interests which as we have demonstrated are diametrically opposed to the interests of our people. By permitting the Jews to control our news and entertainment media, we are doing more than merely giving them a decisive influence on our political system and virtual control of our government; we also are giving them control of the minds and souls of our children, whose attitudes and ideas are shaped more by Jewish television and Jewish films than by their parents, their schools, or any other influence.

bureau of prisons denies Madoff has cancer

The Federal Bureau of Prisons said Monday that the convicted swindler Bernard L. Madoff had not been diagnosed with cancer and was not terminally ill.

The bureau directly contradicted a report in The New York Post on Monday that said Mr. Madoff was dying of cancer, citing only unidentified sources.

After receiving numerous queries about the report, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Prisons, Traci Billingsley, released the following statement:

“While the N.Y. Post story is full of inaccuracies, and we can’t specifically address all of them, we can tell you that Bernie Madoff is not terminally ill, and has not been diagnosed with cancer.”

Mr. Madoff, the architect of the largest Ponzi scheme in history, is serving a 150-year term at the federal prison in Butner, N.C.

Obama to nominate Bernanke to second term

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, widely credited with taking aggressive action to avert an economic catastrophe after the financial meltdown last fall, will be nominated by President Barack Obama for a second term, The Associated Press learned Monday night. Obama plans to make the announcement on Tuesday during a break from his vacation on Martha's Vineyard. A senior administration official discussed the nomination on the condition of anonymity because it was not yet public.

more fear mongering on swine flu, plus some rallying round the flag

The epidemic, it said, "could cause between 30,000 and 90,000 deaths in the United States, concentrated among children and young adults," it said.

That compares with 30,000 to 40,000 deaths from seasonal flu each year, mainly among people over age 65.

The report said the epidemic poses "especially high risks" for people with pre-existing conditions such as pregnant women and patients with neurological disorders, respiratory impairment, diabetes or severe obesity.

It also mentioned Native Americans as being at risk from the swine flu. [WTF ???]


Overall, the PCAST gave the administration positive reviews for its preparation.

"The Federal Government's response has been truly impressive and we've all been pleased to see the high level of cooperation among the many departments and agencies that are gearing up for the expected fall resurgence of H1N1 flu," said PCAST co-chair Harold Varmus.

"This virus has pulled us all together in common cause," said another PCAST co-chair, Eric Lander. "The preparations are the best ever for an influenza pandemic," he said.

Over 20 pharmaceutical companies around the world are racing to test, produce and distribute more than a billion doses of the vaccines in anticipation of the second wave of infection.

Ellen Brown interview on the collapse of debt money


Daily Bell: Can you tell us your book's thesis in a nutshell?

Brown: Our money is an illusion. Except for coins, which compose only one ten-thousandth of the money supply, all of our money today consists of debt to private banks. Banks always take back more money in principal and interest than they put into the money supply as principal, making the system basically a pyramid scheme. After 300 years, this scheme has spread around the world and has now reached its mathematical limits. The whole world has been captured in the debt trap of a private international banking monopoly.

Endgame: recession accelerates 'aliyah'

buh bye!! - ed.

For six years, Laurie Turnof worked long hours as an assistant vice president at Lehman Brothers; her career was her top priority.

But after the company's meltdown last year, Turnof decided she needed a change of direction. First she went on a six-month tour of southeast Asia that took her to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Now, back from her travels, the 28-year-old New Yorker is planning to move to Israel.

"I go there about every other year and I've always enjoyed it," Turnof told JTA. "So now I have this opportunity and I said, well maybe I'll go."

Turnof, a native of Holmdel, N.J., plans to fly to Israel in December to look for a job in micro-finance and then immigrate. She's thinking about moving to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, where she has friends.

Turnof is among a number of American Jews who are experiencing the recession as a catalyst for aliyah, or immigration to the Jewish state.

Madoff dying of cancer

hmm wonder how he got that? something in his toothpaste?

plausible deniability - ed.

NEW YORK, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Bernard Madoff, convicted of swindling $65 billion through the biggest-ever Ponzi scheme, has told fellow prison inmates that he is dying of cancer, the New York Post reported on Monday, citing unnamed prison sources.

Madoff, 71, who since June has been serving a 150-year sentence at a North Carolina federal prison, has been telling fellow inmates he does not have much longer to live, the Post said, citing the unofficial and unusual sources.

The Post said there had been speculation that Madoff was suffering from pancreatic cancer earlier this year. Inmates said Madoff was taking "about 20 pills a day" and "not doing very well."

The Post said Madoff's lawyer did not return messages Sunday and had previously declined to answer questions about whether Madoff had cancer. Reuters could not reach Madoff lawyer Ira Sorkin immediately for comment.

The tabloid also reported Madoff has engaged in a number of surprising new activities with some unexpected social circles.

A shirtless Madoff has joined weekly "Native American religious purification ceremonies" that involve prayers, heated rocks to induce sweat and smoking from a ceremonial pipe, the paper said.

The paper also reported that various "gangs" at the prison are trying to recruit Madoff while some inmates regularly cook "sandwich wraps" for him at their cells. (Reporting by Joseph A. Giannone, editing by Maureen Bavdek)

body snatchers are back

another great article, this one by Israel Shamir - ed.


This lack of moral inhibitions allowed a leading Khabbad rabbi, Yitzhak Ginzburg, to give his religious permission to a Jew to take a liver from a goy even without his consent. He said that “a Jew is entitled to extract the liver from a goy if he needs it, for the life of a Jew is more valuable than the life of a goy, likewise the life of a goy is more valuable than the life of an animal.”

Modern Israelis have forgotten their faith, but have retained this lack of inhibition. An Israeli business newspaper, The Marker, has published an opinion piece by an Israeli lawyer justifying the trade in body organs, for “organs are just commodity, and so they can be bought and sold like any commodity in an open market”.


Could it be that the useful-for-Israel fear of anti-Semitism does not work like a charm anymore? This is possible. The Cairo speech of Obama apparently has had no direct consequences; Obama tried to apply pressure to Israel in order to freeze the settlements, but in vain. Did he fail? It is too early to judge, as Chou En Lai was wont to say. Such changes rarely occur by the wave of a magic wand … they take time. Recent publications on the Jewish criminal gang in New Jersey, attacks on Goldman Sachs, medals for Mary Robinson and Desmond Tutu, an award to Felicia Langer, the collapse of the pro-Jewish socialist party and the appearance of an anti-zionist party in France, the Boström article in Aftonbladet – all are small and separate incidents, but together they imply that the change is coming. Swedes, French, Germans and even New Jerseyans are no longer afraid of Washington coming at them like sixteen tons in defence of Zionists, as would have been the case in the days of George W. Bush. Obama even refused to appoint a new anti-anti-semitic commissar.

This thought frightens the Tel Aviv government more than anything. If today they let the Swedes get away with it, tomorrow there will be somebody else, and then the fear of the Jews will be assigned to the category of unmanly unrealistic fears, like fear of mice.

Second Ending

More importantly, Israeli outrage is a proof that - despite approval for it by radical Cabbalists and neoliberals - transplantation of human organs is an immoral dreadful thing, too close to cannibalism, and we all know that. Yes, it is awful if Israeli soldiers tear kidneys out of Palestinians and kill them afterwards. But it is equally awful, if a kind doctor removes a kidney out of a Detroit mechanic whose house was repossessed by a gentle banker, or out of a Ukrainian worker who was sacked by a polite oligarch, or out of an Indian farmer who has to pay his debt to Monsanto. Every poor man on the planet is a Palestinian – though the means of his dispossession may vary. This kind of thing should be stopped. The human body is sacred. These operations are too expensive and can’t be justified. Mankind should overcome its fear of death. We live and we die. There is no reason to waste thousands of dollars prolonging a life by expensive operations if this money can be used for feeding the starving. More about this later...

the body snatchers of israel

Independently of the recently published article of the Swedish journalist Donald Boström about the Israelis murdering Palestinians in order to harvesting of organs for sale, and independently of the hysteric screeching and denials by the Israelis, I want to present my readers what I witnessed, saw, observed and heard during my 22 years of journalistic work under the Israeli military occupation in the West Bank and Gaza. My personal experience confirms what Mr. Boström wrote: while I do not know the particular case which he describes, it is typical for what the Israelis do in Palestine all the time, what is “normal” since the early seventies.

The Israeli military occupation started in the early 1970s to capture and keep the bodies of the Palestinians who they murdered. Since the early seventies, thousands of Palestinians have been buried in secret and number graves of the Israeli military. Since the early seventies, thousands of Palestinian victims of the occupation were “autopsied”, and many of their bodies kept in military numbered graves. Most members of the resistance who were killed were taken for “autopsy”, and also those who were wounded were abducted from the hospital by the Israelis. This practice became somewhat less widespread only when the PA came to power, meaning that people murdered in areas controlled by the PA were not “autopsied” any more, but this would still happen to people murdered or wounded in areas controlled by the Israelis.

The Israeli military leadership, the Central Command and the so-called “defense” Ministry cannot hide these well- and widely known facts: the Israeli military murders people all the time, and most if not all of the murdered are taken for “autopsy”, many of them are buried in Israeli military cemeteries in numbered and secret graves. These facts cannot be hidden by the fancy statements issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Israel, by the deranged terrorist and war criminal Ehud Barak and the corrupt extremist Benjamin Netanyahu.

In many cases, the so-called “civil administration”, military commanders and officers were returning to their families the bodies of Palestinians who they had murdered after the middle of the night, and after a few days “detention” of the bodies. The military officers would call the families of the victim after the middle of the night (usually at 1-3 in the morning), demanding that a few relatives, “not more than 10”, wait on the street for burying the body.

The first condition of the military “civil” administration was that the burial should take place immediately after receiving the body, in the dark of the night, for “security reasons”, the second condition of the Israelis was that women should not participate in the secret funeral, also for “security reasons” (actually they wanted to avoid that the screams of grieving mothers, sisters, daughters of the victim would be heard, so alerting the neighbourhood to the crime). The Israeli officers always used “security reasons” to justify and cover up their criminal activities!

thousands of israelis petition to boycott IKEA

because after all, assuaging the hurt feelings of israelis takes precedence over finding out the truth about illegal organ trafficking... - ed.

Thousands of Israelis have signed an online petition to boycott the Swedish furniture retailer IKEA, in the wake of a controversial article published in the Swedish daily Aftonbladet that suggested that Israeli soldiers "harvested" the organs of Palestinians.

The signatories were also dismayed at the refusal of the Stockholm government to denounce the allegations under the banner of press freedom.

"In the wake of the anti-Semitic publication of a Medieval-type blood libel against IDF soldiers, and the ongoing silence of the Swedish government on the matter, it is unacceptable that we continue to support the Swedish retailer IKEA," the petition read. "Please, don't just sign the petition, we need real action!"

H1N1 october surprise prevention

The core essence of "Greater Things" is that there is always a better way to do things -- anything -- whether it be religion, politics, science, academia -- anything. To the extent that we get institutionalized and codified in a set belief system, is the extent that we inhibit the ability to grow and learn new and better ways. - Dr. Andrew Moulden.

A growing number of doctors, other health professionals and citizens are attempting to prevent the humanitarian disaster planned for this October when the new H1N1 vaccine is to be deployed in a grand scale, military, war on terror manoeuvre .

"Primum non nocere" ("First do no harm"), medical ethics standard attributed to Hippocrates that became obligatory for physicians prior to practicing medicine in the 4th century AD is still upheld by some doctors who oppose the worldwide October plan including what Global Research Director, Michel Chossudovsky warns is a military operation leading to global militarization control of individuals.

An under-reported first International Swine Flu Conference being held in Washington DC this weekend includes sessions on “conducting morgue operations,” “mass fatality planning” and “unwillingness to follow government orders,” and “training teachers to screen for symptoms …and “transport ill students.”(Jesse Woodrow, They have planned to take kids from schools for Mass Vaccinations and Quarantines WAKE UP!)

swine flu conference in DC predicts the end of the USA as a result of the pandemic

Every day the mainstream media in the US and around the world hypes the threat of the so-called swine flu and spends acres of words on every alleged fatality. And yet not one mainstream media outlet has covered the first INTERNATIONAL Swine Flu Conference, which finishes today 21st August in Washington DC.

The conference prepares for a catastrophe in the USA, for mass evacuations, economic collapse and the death or illness of 40 per cent of the workforce. Why, if people are to be given the "swine flu" shot and the shot is allegedly so effective?

The conference covers mass fatality management, the protection (by the police and army presumably) of he "emergency response management center", which will ultimately controlled by WHO and the UN from which orders will be sent to pandemic deployment teams. They will be sent out to conduct forced innoculations as allowed by law in many states (undertaking mass vaccinations effectively) and impose quarantines.

The conference covers evacuation and mass transport. Mass transport to where? To the FEMA camps?

This conference foresees 30 to 40 percent of the emergency responders dropping out from operations. Why? If they are to get the innoculation first, and this is allegedly so effective?

Why does the mainstream media not cover a conference that predicts total economic and social collapse, and the end of the USA as it has been in existence since its foundation, attended by 700 experts from more than 30 countrie?

mainstream belgium newspaper talks about "rumors of global genocide under the pretext of a pandemic"

A leading Belgium newspaper has reported on the criminal charges filed in Austria by myself and subsequently in France, Ireland, the UK, the Netherland and Sweden by others, over the WHO and Baxtrer swine flu pandemic hoax.

The newspaper refers to "foolish rumours" circulating on the internet that there is an ambition to trigger a "global genocide under cover of a pandemic."

The newspaper omits to mention that the Austrian police are investigating the "charges filed in Austria" over Baxter's contamination of 72 kilos of vaccine material with live bird flu virus provided by WHO, which nearly triggered a global pandemic.

In view of the fact that Baxter uses biosafely level 3 regulations in its biomedical facilities in Orth an der Donau, the contamination and distribution of such material strongly suggests criminal intent.

exposed: swine flu hoax

The alarm has been sounded. Politicians, pharmaceutical executives and media conglomerates would have us believe that a 1918-style pandemic is a real threat. The 1918 pandemic, however, evolved out of conditions unique to World War I, for four specific reasons.

Why 2009 is Not 1918

First, World War I was characterized by millions of troops living in waterlogged trenches along the Western Front. This war zone became fertile ground for an opportunistic virus, as medical literature reveals:

"…a landscape that was contaminated with respiratory irritants such as chlorine and phosgene, and characterized by stress and overcrowding, the partial starvation in civilians, and the opportunity for rapid ‘passage’ of influenza in young soldiers would have provided the opportunity for multiple but small mutational charges throughout the viral genome." (1)

Second, the war witnessed the growth of industrial-scale military camps and embarkation ports, such as Etaples in France, enabling the flu virus to enter into another phase of accelerated mutation. On any given day, Etaples was a makeshift city of 100,000 troops from around the British Empire and its former dominions. These soldiers concentrated into unsanitary barracks, tents and mess halls.

are empire and democracy compatible?

The status quo claims Empire "supports" democracy. But what if Empire is intrinsically incompatible with democracy?

Let's take a quick look at the American Empire.

I use the word "Empire" because to avoid it would be artifice. What word other than Empire describes a nation with a commercial, diplomatic and military presence in most of the planet's nations?

I use the term without ideological spin: for the purposes of this analysis, it is not a structure to deny, deplore or glorify but one which must be carefully described as a unique and thus key context of all global issues, even those which on the surface appear to have little connection to military matters.

It is important to preface any discussion of Empire by noting that those serving their nation honorably in the U.S. Armed Forces are not always well-served by their civilian leadership. The reason citizens serve is to defend the nation, which is the Constitutionally mandated, legitimate purpose of the Armed Forces.

FEMA's new administrator

September 2009
By Amanda Ripley
The Atlantic Monthly

Craig Fugate, the new head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency under President Barack Obama, is an unusual choice for the job, historically speaking. Unlike many of his predecessors, most famously Michael “Heckuva Job” Brown under President George W. Bush, Fugate (pronounced few-gate) has experience in the relevant subject matter. A former firefighter, Fugate managed disasters for 20 years in Florida, the fiasco capital of America. Even more bizarrely for FEMA, often a dumping ground for friends of the powerful, Fugate has no political connections to Obama. Instead, he got his job the old-fashioned way—when Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was looking for candidates, people kept mentioning his name. He has a reputation for telling it like it is—in a field where “it” is usually bad. And what Fugate has to say may come as strong medicine for his fellow citizens, 9 out of 10 of whom now live in a place at significant risk for some kind of disaster.

a bedtime story

The bad pirates were making trouble in the Gulf of Aden.

The Russians sent some ships there to escort commercial vessels. Lots of countries sent ships because the pirates are bad. So bad.

"The warships from the Pacific Fleet have successfully escorted over 100 Russian and foreign commercial ships since January 2009. They have thwarted several attacks by pirates," the official said.

Around 35 warships from the navies of 16 countries are currently deployed off Somalia's coast to counter frequent pirate attacks on key trade routes.

Pirate attacks on commercial vessels in the Gulf of Aden and off the east coast of Somalia have amounted to 130 since the beginning of the year, with 44 ships captured and at least 270 people held as hostages.

But while the Russian ships were busy in the Gulf of Aden protecting commercial vessels from the bad pirates, Georgia was playing pirates in the Black Sea! In Russia's back yard! Bad Georgia.
The Georgian government yesterday confirmed to the Agence-France Presse that it had captured two cargo ships in the Black Sea, which it accused of attempted to break their naval blockade by visiting the Republic of Abkhazia.

Abkhazia, predictably, was none to pleased with the capture of the ships: one a Turkish tanker delivering fuel and the other a Cambodian ship with a Syrian crew which was delivering scrap metal, and threatened a “proportionate response” against Georgia for the blockade.
Then...the Arctic Sea went missing for two weeks, and it's all very mysterious, but the Russian navy found it, phew, and not a single shot was fired. And nobody really knows what's going on it's like watching Chinese Olympic ping pong.
The Finnish owner of the Arctic Sea ship, which was missing in the Atlantic for more than two weeks until it was found on Monday, wants reliable information on the crew, the Solchart company said on Friday.

The Maltese-flagged cargo vessel was found off Cape Verde on Monday with 15 Russian crewmembers and eight suspected hijackers on board. The ship was freed by the Russian Ladny missile frigate without a single shot being fired.

"We are appealing to all officials with a request to show humanity and provide Solchart with any reliable information on the crew and the vessel," Viktor Matveyev, managing director of the Finnish company, said.

He said the company had made inquiries to various organizations about the vessel and its crew, and on who was taking the ship to the Russian Black Sea port of Novorossiysk and for what reason, but had received no reply.

The ship's 11 crew members and all eight of the alleged hijackers were flown to Russia on Thursday. The other four crew members of the Arctic Sea, including the captain, remain on board.

Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said the ship was heading to Novorossiysk, where the investigation would be continued.

The head of an Arkhangelsk-based trade union of seamen said earlier the Arctic Sea crew had been unable to contact their relatives since they were freed. However, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Prosecutor General's Office dismissed reports on Friday that the crew's rights and freedom of movement were restricted.

Four Estonians, two Latvians and two Russians arrested on board the vessel on suspicion of hijacking are currently being questioned in Russia.

A Moscow court on Friday gave approval for all the eight men accused of hijacking the cargo vessel to be held in custody.

Weird, huh? And right in the middle of that happening the Swedish newspaper went and published that wicked story about the IOF stealing organs from Palestinians. And the Arctic Sea went missing off the coast of Sweden, an area where piracy is unheard of, so...weird.

And now, actually, we hear that the bad pirates who hijacked the Arctic Sea were only trying to help Israel by stopping evil weapons from reaching Iran. !!!, pirates are not bad after all? I guess these are the "good" kind of pirates, the Robin Hood kind of pirates, helping the down-trodden Israelis protect themselves from the evil Iranians.

Pirates recently gained control over a Russian ship off the shores of Sweden in order to prevent weapons smuggling to Iran on Israel's behalf, according to a report by Russian newspaper Nuvia Gueta.

According to Saturday's report, which Army Radio cited, the Russian ship was carrying a load of X-55 cruise missiles intended for Teheran. Several days after the pirates seized the ship, Russian navy forces gained control over the vessel off the coast of West Africa.

Army Radio said Russian authorities denied the report, saying "the allegations are baseless."

Dmitri Rogozin, Russia's ambassador to NATO, said the report was fantastical and absurd.

Oh wait! Turns out they weren't pirates they were Mossad!!! Which Is Totally Different!!!
A Russian newspaper claimed Friday that suspected pirates who boarded the freighter Arctic Sea were actually agents of the Israeli secret service trying to stop it from smuggling arms into Iran.

According to Russian media, the Arctic Sea may have been carrying illegal X-55 cruise missiles destined for Iran hidden among its cargo of lumber.

Men acting on behalf of the Israeli Mossad secret service commandeered the ship to divert the weapons away from Israel’s regional enemy, the daily Novaya Gazeta said.

Citing Moscow publicist Yulia Latynina, the daily pointed to the surprise visit of Israeli President Shimon Peres Aug 18, a day after the Arctic Sea, which had been missing for three weeks, had been tracked down and liberated by Russian forces off West Africa.

During his visit, Peres, who according to Latynina had no other business in Russia, requested Moscow refrain from supplying weapons or missile defence systems to Iran. [that sounds so diplomatic shalom - ed.]

The deployment at great expense of Russian Black Sea fleet to liberate the hijacked ship was undertaken for the sake of the 15 Russian seamen on board and not supposed weapons, Rogozin said.

Russian authorities in Moscow late Friday formally charged the eight alleged hijackers with kidnapping and piracy, the Interfax news agency reported.

The suspects include a Lithuanian, a Russian, three stateless people, and a Spaniard, the report said, adding that the citizenship of the two remaining suspects had yet to be clarified.

According to official reports, the Arctic Sea was liberated from pirates Monday off the coast of West Africa. According to the Russian sources, pirates seized the freighter July 24 off the coast of Sweden.

Victor Matveev, director of Solchart Management, the shipping company that owns the Arctic Sea freighter stated Friday that his company “still has not received any official information” about the ship or its crew.

So all that's left is to flash the Memory Eraser at the crew and I'm sure this is all going to make perfect sense by the end of the day tomorrow.
