Goss Choice Quit CIA In 1982 Under Fire

Goss Choice Quit CIA In 1982 Under Fire Bush & Co.'s choice to run the CIA has selected a long-time lobbyist for Chevron to be the number three positioned person.

"After leaving the agency in 1982, Kostiw was hired by Texaco Inc. for its Latin America/West Africa division. He came to Washington in 1987 and rose to be ChevronTexaco's vice president for international government affairs where he managed offices in the United States and abroad."

Oh, by the way, he was more or less asked to leave the CIA the first time for lying during a lie detector test regarding a shoplifting incident...he should fit in quite well...

Kurdish demonstrators demand autonomy

Kurdish demonstrators demand autonomy Bush & Co. will have to see that that never happens....

"The call for Kirkuk to be made the capital of an autonomous Kurdistan is also particularly sensitive for Iraq's central government. If Kirkuk is made the capital then Kurds might also call for Kirkuk's huge oil revenues to be directed only to them."

Since the US supplied SH with the chemical weapons used against the Kurds in the early 90s, just about anything could happen to those who try to position themselves between Bush & Co. and an oil-well!

World reaction disproportionate

World reaction disproportionate Israel has killed at least 56 Palestinians this past week.

Hamas' representative in Lebanon, Usama Hamdan said the "massacres" committed in Gaza were done with American consent.

"It is obvious that these massacres couldn’t have happened without an American political cover or through American pressure on the members of the UN not to condemn the Israeli actions," he told Aljazeera.net

"With the US now committing (similar) crimes in Iraq and before that in Afghanistan, this reveals that the American mentality and style is similar to the Israeli one."

"The US can't criticise Israel because it will be criticising itself," he added.

America's Lost Respect

America's Lost Respect Yet another wonderful Krugman...

Instead of respect, "we're getting instead is a provision, inserted by Congressional Republicans in the intelligence reform bill, to legalize "extraordinary rendition" - a euphemism for sending terrorism suspects to countries that use torture for interrogation. This would institutionalize a Kafkaesque system under which suspects can be sent, at the government's whim, to Egypt or Syria or Jordan - and to fight such a move, it's up to the suspect to prove that he'll be tortured on arrival. Just what we need to convince other countries of our commitment to the rule of law."

Guantanamo Briton 'tortured in US custody' Bush as war criminal: "Amnesty International's UK director, Kate Allen, said: 'The US must now bring the shameful situation at Guantanamo Bay to an end. There should be a full and independent inquiry to establish who is responsible for any ill-treatment, at all levels in the US administration. Those responsible must be brought to justice.'"

It remains to be seen whether the three-thousand smart bombs Bush & Co. sold to Israel last week will be used to attack Syria, the nuclear plants in Iran, or, re-sold to Putin for use against the Chechan rebels...

A second question remains regarding timing these attacks with the November 2nd theft of the election.

Dick Cheney and the $5 Million Man The story of Nigerian oil, Bush & Co., Halliburton, corruption, SEC investigation, and OIL OIL OIL...

"The Journal du Dimanche (JDD, a large Sunday paper) revealed on June 13 that Judge Van Ruymbeke's investigation has uncovered how Albert 'Jack' Stanley, the president of huge Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) at the time of the alleged bribery, received so-called 'commissions' of 3 percent of the deal from the slush fund. The total amount Stanley received is some $5 million, according to reports in the International Herald Tribune and elsewhere. The Nigerian oil minister at the time, Dan Entete, got $2.5 million, reported the JDD. The slush fund was set up with Halliburton money by a London lawyer, Jeffrey Tesler--who worked for Halliburton at the same time he was financial adviser to the notoriously corrupt late Nigerian dictator Gen. Sani Abacha--as a shell-company front called TriStar, which Tesler established in the British tax haven of Gibraltar. Stanley, the 5 Million Dollar Man, is a close friend and associate of Dick Cheney. "

The hollow world of George Bush Another well-written Blumenthal editorial on the deception that is Bush & Co. "Bush's campaign depends on the containment of any contrary perception of reality. He must evade, deny and suppress it. His true opponent is not his Democratic foe - called unpatriotic and the candidate of al-Qaida by the vice-president - but events."

Afghanistan Country Analysis Brief

Afghanistan Country Analysis Brief Stating that Afghanistan has been considered as a target for a pipeline '[d]ue to its location between the oil and natural gas reserves of the Caspian Basin and the Indian Ocean...'

Unocal viewed Afghanistan as the best location to host a pipeline to move oil and gas from Central Asia. The only problem for Bush & Co. is that in order for Wall Street to invest in a project, it must have a certain level of stability and manageable risk levels. Bush & Co. needed to have a stable pro-Western government in place to achieve this financial goal. Their motto is, afterall, 'leave no pipeline behind'. Coincidentally as a result of their invasion, such a government is now ready to assure the investment banking community that it can support and maintain a pipeline. The pipeline will now be a significantly more attractive investment and Bush & Co. will soon have another part of their oil web in place....

Note for today...

Neoconservatives, by their very nature, either distort the truth by misleading omissions and misstatements; or, alternatively, simply state that what is, isn’t. One cannot change the mind of these types; one must simply learn to identify them, and, once identified, take whatever they say, negate it, and go on with life. They live in an irrational world of their own creation, filled with the fog of their delusional thoughts, never admitting error, never knowing the truth, never to be trusted.
