  1. War criminal Saleh of Yemen arrived in the USA a week ago as an invited guest of the State Department. If anyone is wondering why al Queda came into existence and how it became so lethal they need look no further than the decades long support for war criminals like Saleh and Sadat. Inviting these war criminals into the United States only increases al Queda membership.

  2. Well, Imhotep, we DO need to maintain a ‘boogie-man’ in order to keep the war machine dollars rolling, now don’t we?

  3. And…Pres. Nobel Peace Prize Winner (Pres. NPPW) has allowed one of his top intel cabinet officials to tell the NYTimes that –just like Bush/Cheney, btw– that if we’re not with them (the administration), we’re against them.

    Doesn’t that make any of us opposing Obama’s war criminal acts, well, supporters of Al Qaeda? And subject to Obama’s Unitary Executive star chamber treatment?

    From Glenn Greenwald’s latest post on drones and our ongoing war crimes in using them as we do, Top Official: Drone Critics Are Al Qaeda Enablers.

    A senior American counterterrorism official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, questioned the report’s findings, saying “targeting decisions are the product of intensive intelligence collection and observation.” The official added: “One must wonder why an effort that has so carefully gone after terrorists who plot to kill civilians has been subjected to so much misinformation. Let’s be under no illusions — there are a number of elements who would like nothing more than to malign these efforts and help Al Qaeda succeed.” (Emphasis in Glenn’s post)

  4. This has been a common technique in war and terrorism for a long time. First a bomb or artillery barrage, and then a pause for the people to come and help the wounded, and then a second bomb or barrage to get the rescuers. Everyone from the Wehrmacht to the KKK to the US Army does it, leaving to one side the issue of its being against all morality, humanity or the laws of war.
