"The CIA’s “Phoenix Program” in Vietnam and the “War on Terror"
The Phoenix Program in Vietnam in many ways provides a blue print for our own times. Assassinations and torture are the essence of the war on terror. As are death squads and false flag terror attacks. As are mass surveillance of the populace.
Thanks to the work of Douglas Valentine in his classic book “The Phoenix Program” we have an extremely detailed account of the Phoenix Program exposing a classic example of the brutality of the CIA’s counter insurgency wars. By studying the Phoenix program one can gain a great deal of insight into the wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq."
Exclusive: Navy Secretly Conducting Electromagnetic Warfare Training on Washington Roads
Without public notification of any kind, the US Navy has secretly been conducting electromagnetic warfare testing and training on public roads in western Washington State for more than five years.
An email thread between the Navy and the US Forest Service between 2010 and 2012, recently obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Oregon-based author and activist Carol Van Strum in November 2014, revealed that the Navy has likely been driving mobile electromagnetic warfare emitters and conducting electromagnetic warfare training in the Olympic National Forest and on public roads on Washington's Olympic Peninsula since 2010.
In one of the 2012 emails, Navy contractor Gerald Sodano explained that the Navy "utilized EW [electronic warfare] ranges outside the local vicinity." But he went on to say that the aim of establishing an electromagnetic warfare range on the Olympic Peninsula would be to conduct all training locally on the Olympic Peninsula, rather than further afield. This means that rather than using expansive training areas the Navy already has access to in Yakima in eastern Washington State, the Navy aims to use the Olympic National Forest and areas adjacent to Olympic National Park instead.
Investigation Reveals US Funding Of "Color Revolutions" in Russia
Seized documents confirm that an activist from the People's Freedom Party (PARNAS), Natalia Pelevine, was involved in foreign foundations that organized the mass riots on the 6th of May 2012. This was reported on the website of the Investigative Committee of Russia (SKR) on Friday, March 11th.
During the investigation into Pelevine, documents were seized on the financing of an oppositional "Committee on May 6th", the American "National Endowment for Democracy" (NED). According to the Investigation Committee, its activity was aimed at discrediting law enforcement bodies that were investigating the case about the mass disorder on Bolotnaya Square on the 6th of May 2012.
"The seized documents confirm the version of events put forward by the investigation about the involvement of foreign anti-Russian centers in the financing of mass riots to attempt a "color revolution" in Russia", — stated the message.
The investigation claims that, in the period from 2013 to 2014, NED gave Pelevine more than $35,000. Also, a receipt for the reception of money from relatives of those convicted of involvement in the unrest in May 2012 was found during the search.
A criminal case against Natalia Pelevine was initiated on March 11th. The case was initated after it was discovered she had used a pen with a built-in camera. She is suspected of committing a crime specified in article 138.1 of the Criminal code of the Russian Federation ("Illicit trafficking by special technical means intended to obtain secret information"). According to the investigators, Pelevine used a DVR-pen to record not only members of law enforcement, but also people from the opposition in order to later use these recordings for her own purposes. The message from the Investigatory Committee states that charges against Pelevine will be made in the near future.
As was noted by the SKR, Pelevine is the Executive Secretary of the "Independent Council for Human Rights", as well as the founder and Director of the American nonprofit organization Democratic Russia Committee ("International Committee for a Democratic Russia").
Targeting America: The FBI, COINTELPRO, and Project Pedophile
COINTELPRO or “Counter-Intelligence Program,” was an illegal operation run by the FBI against American citizens in the 1960’s and 1970’s. It was revealed by the Church Committee in the 1970’s and the FBI was ordered to shelve the program.
In actuality, the FBI re-named the program, gave it additional veneers of security classification(s), and it still continues today, albeit with the assistance of advanced technology and the cooperation of the NSA and DHS.
The goal of today’s COINTELPRO is in part based on what are referred to as the 5 D’s by the United Kingdom’s General Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). The 5 D’s are Deny, Deceive, Disrupt, Degrade, and inevitably Destroy the target.
Well who are the targets one might logically ask next?
If one looks at potential threats through the eyes of the federal government, they will soon discover that NRA members, returning veterans, activists, whistle-blowers, watch-dog bloggers, and investigative journalists are lumped in with the likes of al Qaeda and ISIS operatives. In many cases these “domestic threats” are considered to be more of a risk than actual terrorists.
Why one may ask?
Well, because there are tens of thousands more innocent Americans than there are real terrorists, it keeps federal budgets plump and fluffy, whilst simultaneously allowing for asset seizure under (false) premises. Additionally, it appears as though Americans with a strong moral compass are a threat to the status quo, to the corrupt power structure.
How the CIA managed to leave explosives on a special-needs school bus - without noticing
Briar Woods High School, a half-hour drive from the CIA's headquarters in Northern Virginia, might have provided an ideal training ground for the agency's bomb-sniffing dogs. Its labyrinthine hallways and voluminous classrooms are home to something that can wreak havoc for the canines: polished floors, which cause dogs to slip and lose their focus as they hunt for explosives.
That was one reason the school, which educates nearly 1,700 students in Ashburn, played host to a CIA dog team for a training exercise while students were away for spring break last week, according to the Loudoun County school system. But the choice to go to a public school for the quiet exercise has led to an only-in-Washington embarrassment for the elite spy agency, which left explosive material behind in the engine compartment of a school bus that then shuttled special-needs schoolchildren for two days this week.
Why would the Rothschilds be so interested in owning the largest and most recognized weather modeling organization out there? Why would E.L. Rothschild LLC wish to have the controlling interest in the world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobil? Because when you are involved in climate decimating geoengineering programs, you must also control the “forecast” models to cover your tracks.
The scope and scale of the global spraying of our skies can hardly be comprehended. SAG (stratospheric aerosol geoengineering) and SRM (solar radiation management), the massive web of supporting structures for these programs is mind bending. What is even more difficult to understand is how all of this happens in plain sight, and almost none seem to connect the dots.
George H. Walker Bush and the 1980 “October Surprise” Mystery
A recently discovered lecture by the late British traitor Kim Philby contains a lesson that may help explain how George H.W. Bush could bluff and bluster his way past mounting evidence that he and other Republicans conspired in 1980 to block release of 52 U.S. hostages in Iran and thus ensure Ronald Reagan’s election, an alleged gambit that bordered on treason itself.
In a speech in East Berlin in 1981 – just aired by the BBC – the Soviet double-agent Philby explained that for someone like himself born into what he called “the ruling class of the British Empire,” it was easy to simply “deny everything.” When evidence was presented against him, he simply had to keep his nerve and assert that it was all bogus. With his powerful connections, he knew that few would dare challenge him.
CIA Operations lead to the Spread of Chaos in the World
Most people are aware of the wide range of secret US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operations which the White House has been employing at different points throughout history to wreak havoc around the globe. And eventually even those who don’t may soon fall victims of the wide range of operations the CIA conducts.
Never before has it been so important to have independent, honest voices and sources of information. We are – as a society – inundated and overwhelmed with a flood of information from a wide array of sources, but these sources of information, by and large, serve the powerful interests and individuals that own them. The main sources of information, for both public and official consumption, include the mainstream media, alternative media, academia and think tanks.
The mainstream media is the most obvious in its inherent bias and manipulation. The mainstream media is owned directly by large multinational corporations, and through their boards of directors are connected with a plethora of other major global corporations and elite interests. An example of these connections can be seen through the board of Time Warner.
President Barack Obama observed: “ISIL [Daesh] is a direct outgrowth of Al Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion — which is an example of unintended consequences — which is why we should generally aim before we shoot.”
Many of us looking at the horror of the Iraq war, waged by the US and the UK against the regime of president Saddam Hussein, in which 200,000 civilians died and for which a total of $800 billion were spent, need little to be persuaded that there was a Machiavellian plot to find an excuse to make war.
Yet, there are many in the circles of power in Washington who believe the US should shoot on sight and kill whenever danger is thought to have appeared — in Iraq, Syria, Libya and, before that, in Vietnam.
The so-called “justification” for going to war in Iraq 13 years ago was based on a 93-page classified CIA document that allegedly contained “specific information” on Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programmes and his close links with Al Qaeda.
