Ahmadinejad tells U.N. most blame U.S. government for 9/11 (Reuters)
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told the United Nations Thursday most people believe the U.S. government was behind the attacks of September 11, 2001 [with the exception of the cognitively-depleted brainwash recipients who watch Fox News and CNN, those that dutifully embrace talking points from pseudo-left gate-keepers (e.g., Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart, Keith Olbermann, Noam Chomsky, et alia), and the pathetic mis-educated liberal/progressive elitists who put their full and everlasting faith in robber-baron foundation/trust-funded social-engineering “programs”** (e.g., NPR and Democracy Now.)]
Addressing the General Assembly, he said it was mostly U.S. government officials and statesmen who believed al Qaeda Islamist militants carried out the suicide hijacking attacks that brought down New York’s World Trade Center and hit the Pentagon.
Another theory, he said, was “that some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack to reverse the declining American economy, and its grips on the Middle East, in order to save the Zionist regime.”
“The majority of the American people as well as most nations and politicians around the world agree with this view,” Ahmadinejad told the 192-nation assembly, calling on the United Nations to establish “an independent fact-finding group” to look into the events of September 11.
Ahmadinejad raised a third theory about the attacks, saying: “It was carried out by a terrorist group, but that the American government supported and took advantage of the situation. Apparently this viewpoint has fewer proponents.”
He said the main evidence for that theory was “a few passports found in the huge volume of rubble and a video of an individual whose place of domicile was unknown but it was announced that he had been involved in oil deals with some American officials.”
“It was also covered up and said that due to the explosion and fire no trace of suicide attackers was found,” he added.
“This regime (Israel), which enjoys the absolute support of some western countries, regularly threatens the countries in the region and continues publicly announced assassination of Palestinian figures and others, while Palestinian defenders … are labeled as terrorists and anti-Semites,” he said.
“All values, even the freedom of expression, in Europe and the United States are being sacrificed at the altar of Zionism,” Ahmadinejad said.

Despite the highly successful corporate media blackout, news pertaining to war atrocities (and their cover-ups) committed by U.S. forces overseas continue to trickle out. The military/intelligence propagandists, even with their dutiful “mighty wurlitzer” media minions, have had a string of embarrassing public relations disasters since the War of Terror™ began in 2001 (most notably the Abu Ghraib prison abuse photos fiasco).
Recent reports portray a far more horrific scene than what has been previously reported about Abu Ghraib. These newly revealed atrocities include brutal systemic rapes of women and girls by U.S. soldiers. Many of these women left the the prison pregnant, while others were honor killed by their families due to the shame. According to journalist Seymour Hersh, the U.S. government has videotape of underage boys being sodomized. These reports point to the real reason why the Obama administration is blocking the release of the remaining Abu Ghraib photos (despite Obama’s campaign promise to make his administration the “most open and transparent in history”).
There have been other pathetic attempts by the military/intelligence/corporate-controlled media to protect the rubes who “can’t handle the truth.” The Pat Tillman political assassination was a particularly egregious example, as was the botched conspiracy to conceal the crime from Tillman’s family and the American public. The completely fabricated tale surrounding Jessica “little girl Rambo” Lynch’s battlefield heroism was another miserable attempt at perception management (otherwise known as disinformation).
One especially disturbing example of the war pigs’ propaganda chicanery has crept back into the alternative news headlines. Spc. Alyssa Peterson, an Arabic-speaking interrogator, committed suicide (supposedly) in Tal Afar, Iraq in 2003 soon after objecting to the torture methods that were being used on prisoners (her story can be read here and is the source for the below quotes). According to Flagstaff public radio station, KNAU:
“She refused to participate after only two nights working in the unit known as the cage. Army spokespersons for her unit have refused to describe the interrogation techniques Alyssa objected to. They say all records of those techniques have now been destroyed.”
The “official” probe of her death revealed that Spc. Alyssa Peterson had a severe character defect, she had compassion for her fellow human beings. Her mother, Bobbi, claims that she always stuck up for “the underdog”. According to Peterson’s brother, “she was extremely sensitive and empathetic to others, and cared a lot more about the welfare and well-being of the people around her than she cared about herself.” From the “official” military probe:
She had been ‘reprimanded’ for showing ’empathy’ for the prisoners. One of the most moving parts of the report, in fact, is this: ‘She said that she did not know how to be two people; she… could not be one person in the cage and another outside the wire.’
After refusing to be a party to blatant Geneva Convention violations, Peterson was reassigned to the base gate to monitor Iraqi guards. Ironically, she was also placed in suicide prevention training (the military has trouble with those pesky Muslims trying to take their own lives after the repeated torture, sexual abuse, and humiliation doled out by their heroic democracy-building captors).
The military, out of necessity, must be populated with large numbers of psychopaths who will obey any order (lawful or otherwise). When your primary goals are to kill people, blow things up, and torture and rape brown people, individuals displaying empathy for their fellow Earthly inhabitants cannot be tolerated. Peterson, unable to adopt the military’s psychopath game rules due to her “empathy defect”, received a bullet in her head from her service rifle.
Like Pat Tillman’s family, Peterson’s parents were also given the standard hush-hush treatment relating to the events surrounding her death. “Spc. Peterson’s mother said that neither she nor her husband Richard had received any official documents that contained information outlined in reports” obtained by a KNAU journalist. “In other words: Like the press and the public, even the parents had been kept in the dark”.
Kayla Williams, an Army sergeant and Signals intelligence (SIGINT) operations specialist who served with Alyssa, talked to her about her problems shortly before she killed herself. Williams, like Alyssa, was an Arabic linguist/interpreter who was forced to take part in torture interrogations. While doing so, she saw detainees being punched and sexually humiliated. She wrote the book below detailing her experiences as a soldier in Iraq.
Here is what Kayla Williams told Soledad O’Brien on CNN:
They stripped prisoners naked and then removed their blindfolds so that I was the first thing they saw. And then we were supposed to mock them and degrade their manhood. And it really didn’t seem to make a lot of sense to me. I didn’t know if this was standard. But it did not seem to work. And it really made me feel like we were losing that crucial moral higher ground, and we weren’t behaving in the way that Americans are supposed to behave.
I sat through it at the time. But after it was over I did approach the non-commissioned officer in charge and told him I think you may be violating the Geneva Conventions…. He said he knew and I said I wouldn’t participate again and he respected that, but I was really, really stunned…

Twelve American soldiers face charges over a secret “kill team” that allegedly blew up and shot Afghan civilians at random and collected their fingers as trophies.
Five of the soldiers are charged with murdering three Afghan men who were allegedly killed for sport in separate attacks this year. Seven others are accused of covering up the killings and assaulting a recruit who exposed the murders when he reported other abuses, including members of the unit smoking hashish stolen from civilians.
Foreign news articles like the one above pose a grave threat to national security in a post-9-11 world and should be censored in the U.S. Not only does this type of propaganda stoke the fire of global anti-American sentiment, but our freedoms and safety are threatened when America’s moral high ground in the execution of the War of Terror® is undermined. Free speech must always yield to the greater interests of national security and idealogical unity.
America is fully justified in taking the battle to the Mohammadan terrorist menace wherever it hides. This justification extends to the killing of non-terrorist men, women, and even little Muslim babies. Though they may technically be classified as non-combatants under international law, those who dwell in and around hotbeds of regional terrorist activity are potential future terrorists, including offspring. The position of slaughtering “gentile babies” to eliminate future threats is fully supported under Talmudic “halachic” law as expressed by Israeli rabbi, Yitzhak Shapira:
“There is justification for killing babies if it is clear that they will grow up to harm us, and in such a situation they may be harmed deliberately, and not only during combat with adults.”
To some this may be an extreme position. I caution those of this mind to remember the events of 9-11 as we enter into the ninth anniversary of patriotic mourning for our fallen heroes. Almost 3,000 of America’s bravest and hardest workers sacrificed their lives when 19 Arab hijackers engaged in a conspiracy to outwit the most sophisticated air defense system in the World, defied previously accepted laws of aerodynamics by flying airplanes into buildings at impossible speeds, and accomplished the incredible feat of knocking down three NYC skyscrapers with only two planes.
Following the 9-11 attacks, patriotic Americans fully supported the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. These military campaigns were necessary to exact brutal revenge on the Muslim people (a.k.a. potential future terrorists) wherever they lived to prevent another 9-11 type attack. Our brave political leaders and fearless generals delivered the Islamisists an undeniable message that terror is absolutely unacceptable under any circumstance. When the terror stops they might get their country back, it’s that simple people!
Some mistakenly argue that since a majority of the 9-11 perpetrators were Saudi Arabians (15 of the 19), including 9-11 terror mastermind Bin Laden (who methodically a plotted the brazen attacks on his laptop in an Afghan cave between his dialysis treatments), the U.S. should have instead bombed Saudi Arabia. Had the U.S. done so, diplomatic relations and countless high-dollar contracts would have been jeopardized. The Bush family, high officials in the Bush (and now Obama) administration, oil and gas corporations, and military defense contractors (who were supplying the Saudis with weapons, missile systems, and critical infrastructure protections) would have suffered severe economic harm as a result of a Saudi invasion. Invading Saudi Arabia would have also likely disrupted oil production leading to skyrocketing gas prices which would have negatively affected the U.S. economy. What’s good for business is good for America.
Muslim countries are pretty much interchangeable as each is a proxy for the overarching terrorist mindset that has infested their religion and culture, thus making it perfectly acceptable to invade any, or all of them. When the terror attacks stop, the U.S. soldiers and corporate mercenaries may or may not come home depending on the attitude of the Muslim people, among other factors (e.g., the full depletion of all natural resources, global opium demand forecasting, oil and gas pipeline completion timetables, and regional stability guaranteeing the safety and secured hegemonic status of our greatest ally, Israel.) In other words, don’t hold your breath, Achmed!
Like it or lump it Muslim people, America is in it for the long haul in the War of Terror®. President Obama has boldly demonstrated his commitment to forcefully restore peace in the Middle East and Afghanistan, and to protect the homeland from crazed jihadists. Through the implementation of innovative homeland security measures (i.e., increased government surveillance, restrictions on free speech, eroding terrorist friendly 4th Amendment protections, and the deployment of the Internet kill-switch), Obama has put every American back into the national security driver’s seat.
The Clash of Civilizations will result in an eventual victor, and it will not have an Islamic face. Osama bin Laden and his jihadist fly-boys should have thought of that before they single-handedly perpetrated the 9-11 attacks (without any help from the neo-con cabal, rogue members of the military-intelligence community, or foreign intelligence services and their domestic allies). Know this – the Christian/Judeo monotheistic religion tag-team can not, and WILL NOT, be beaten.
Here is a link to a list of tin-foil hat conspiracy nuts who question the government’s official position on 9-11. Although they once held high ranking positions in the U.S. government and military, their hatred of America has muddled their critical-thinking faculties. The list of unpatriotic scumbags includes: Max Cleland (former U.S. Senator – GA), Louis Freeh (former FBI Director), General Albert Stubblebine (U.S. Army – Ret), Ray McGovern, and many other unhinged and reality-detached individuals. They put our country at risk by spouting off their idiotic hate America first nonsense. Have pity on their souls, as they are doing the Devil’s work by attacking the Shining City on the Hill (American Providence).

The Marijuana Conspiracy:
The Reason Hemp is Illegal
They say marijuana is dangerous. Pot is not harmful to the human body or mind. Marijuana does not pose a threat to the general public. Marijuana is very much a danger to the oil companies, alcohol, tobacco industries and a large number of chemical corporations. Big businesses, with plenty of dollars and influence, have suppressed the truth from the people. The truth is, if marijuana was utilized for its vast array of commercial products, it would create an industrial atomic bomb!
1) All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s. (Jack Frazier. Hemp Paper Reconsidered. 1974.)
2) It was legal to pay taxes with hemp in America from 1631 until the early 1800s. (LA Times. Aug. 12, 1981.)
3) Refusing to grow hemp in America during the 17th and 18th centuries was against the law! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769 (G. M. Herdon. Hemp in Colonial Virginia).
4) George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers grew hemp. (Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France then to America.)
5) Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America, and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon wanted to cut off Moscow’s export to England. (Jack Herer. Emperor Wears No Clothes.)
6) For thousands of years, 90% of all ships’ sails and rope were made from hemp. The word ‘canvas’ is Dutch for cannabis. (Webster’s New World Dictionary.)
7) 80% of all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc., were made from hemp until the 1820s, with the introduction of the cotton gin.
8)The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross’s flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp. (U.S. Government Archives.)
9) The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th century. (State Archives.)
10) Oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
11) Rembrandt’s, Van Gogh’s, Gainsborough’s, as well as most early canvas paintings, were principally painted on hemp linen.
12) In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs. (U.S. Department of Agriculture Archives.)
13) Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935. (Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before the U.S.Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.)
14) Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the car itself was constructed from hemp! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel. (Popular Mechanics, 1941.)
15) In 1938, hemp was called ‘Billion-Dollar Crop.’ It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars. (Popular Mechanics, Feb. 1938.)
16) Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled ‘The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.’ It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
William Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst’s grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.
In 1937, DuPont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. DuPont’s Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80% of DuPont’s business.
Andrew Mellon became Hoover’s Secretary of the Treasury and DuPont’s primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J.Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion-dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: ‘marijuana’ and pushed it into the consciousness of America.
A media blitz of ‘yellow journalism’ raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst’s newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marijuana. The menace of marijuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to loose morality.
Films like Reefer Madness (1936), Marijuana: Assassin of Youth (1935) and Marijuana: The Devil’s Weed (1936) were propaganda designed by these industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marijuana laws could be passed.

Many are aware of the U.S. Government-directed conspiracy to assassinate Martin Luther King Jr. The James Earl Ray lone-nut killer narrative has been thoroughly rebutted, most notably in the 1999 wrongful death lawsuit brought by the King family against Loyd Jowers. In their verdict, the jury found that “governmental agencies were party to the conspiracy” to murder MLK Jr. Less known is that his mother likely suffered a similar violent fate at the hands of a MKULTRA mind-controlled assassin.
Alberta King was shot and killed on June 30, 1974 by 23 year-old Marcus Wayne Chenault as she sat at the organ of the Ebenezer Baptist Church during a Sunday service. He wounded three people, two of them —Mrs. King and Deacon Edward Boykin, 69—fatally. According to the New York Times, Chenault “told the police that his mission was to kill the Rev. Martin Luther King Sr., but he shot Mrs. King instead because she was close to him”.
Interestingly, Alberta King’s life was taken only a few months before James Earl Ray’s evidentiary hearing to determine whether or not he would be granted a new trial.
The FBI maintained wiretaps on the King Family and the SCLC for some time after MLK Jr.’s assassination. With mounting evidence of the government’s involvement in the killing, the guilty parties had plenty of reason to be fearful of one of MLK Jr.’s parents going public, or possibly speaking in Ray’s defense. The last thing those bastards needed was a tag team consisting of MLK Jr.’s mourning widow and his grieving mother (or father) blanketing the airwaves and exposing the FBI’s murderous COINTELPRO shenanigans.
So, who was Marcus Wayne Chenault?
The following is from this informative blog post:
Marcus “Markie” as he called was born quite different from his brothers and sisters. All of Markie’s family members were associated with the branches of U.S. Armed Services. Markie was too short and nearsighted to qualify for any type of military service.
The senior Chenault was a long term employee of the Atomic Energy Commission’s (AEC) “Mounds” laboratory in Miamisburg, Ohio, 15 miles south of Dayton. The Mounds Lab was part of the S Factor, Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Former SRI and AEC Director, CIA/MK-ULTRA Director, John Alex McCone, formed the Mounds Laboratory on approximately 360 acres in 1948. There is concrete evidence that electronic mind control was an object of extensive study, research and experimentation at SRI as exposed by the Washington Post on August 7, 1977.
Before the assassination of Mrs. King and Deacon Boykin, witnesses said that Markie went through numerous personality changes. One day he was an anti-communist. The next day he was a Christian. One day he was a Muslim then a jew, and the next day he was a homosexual. One day he was a flaming Black militant, and the next day he was very lonely and withdrawn. Someone was switching poor Markie off and no, into entirely different and distinct personalities. Markie was a real life Mr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde case. When he had been arrested, police asked Markie about a long scar on his skull. Markie had no recollection of the scar and where it had come from. Markie had undergone some type of unknown remarkable invasive brain surgery that he couldn’t recall. When asked if he killed anyone, Chenault could not remember, he responded accepting responsibility for the homicides with unbelievable glee and joy. Smiling, he said, “I assume I did, I assume I shot someone.”
During arraignment on murder charges, Chenault referred to himself in an alter personality, a “Hebrew”, and gave the name of the alter to the court as “Servant JACOB”. In court, Chenault was observed to be biting and licking his lips, and clasping his hands, repetitively. When asked about the shooting, Wayne responded, “I’m a Hebrew and was sent here on a mission and it’s partially accomplished.” Markie had been sent on a mission from some God packaged and pre-programmed to kill.
Jacob, in Hebrew, is also called Israel. In the bible, Jacob had an ongoing rivalry with his twin brother, Esau. That struggle originated in the womb, leading their mother Rebecca to seek a divine oracle from which she learned that the younger Jacob would rule over his brother. This reference is important in understanding Chenault’s programming in that alter “Servant JACOB” was programmed to rule over the mind, body, personality of Marcus Wayne Chenault.
During his sentencing to the death penalty for capital murder, Markie violently spat in the faces of his mother and father. I always wondered why until the dots were connected to John McCone, DCI of the CIA/MK ULTRA; Mounds Weapons Laboratory; and the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
The Mounds Lab was a nuclear weapons and light arms facility. The Mounds Lab had many business, partnership and personnel connections with Bechtel, Kaiser, McCone, Monsanto, and SRI. Additionally, there were some secret operations conducted at Mounds Lab by Wright Patterson Air Force base. Wright Patterson base was involved in recruiting bright young geniuses to attempt a breakthrough in Tesla technology. Wright Patterson had been the home base to some of the most ardent Operation Paperclip Nazi-SS scientist. Tesla technologies involved electric magnetic frequencies mind control that the SS was interested in perfecting and exploiting.
Markie had been linked to a group of Black mind control assassins, “The Troop”, being run out of the Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Markie and “The Troop” hit list targeted most of America’s leading Black religious and spiritual leaders straight out of COINTELPRO.
There are also some interesting tidbits in this TIME Magazine article from July 15, 1974 quoted below:
Mrs. Martin Luther King Sr., 69, wife of the pastor and mother of the slain civil rights leader, was playing. As the 500 worshipers bowed their heads for the Lord’s Prayer, Marcus Wayne Chenault, 23, opened fire with two revolvers.
“I’m tired of all this!” he screamed.
“I’m taking over!” And he sprayed bullets wildly until both guns were empty.
He wounded three people, two of them —Mrs. King and Deacon Edward Boykin, 69—fatally.
In Chenault’s Columbus apartment, police found a list of ten black churchmen and civil rights leaders, headed by Martin Luther King Sr. Not seeing him in church, Chenault may have picked King’s wife as a substitute target. (Police also intend to question Chenault about the unsolved killings of two black ministers in Dayton in the past two months.)
