The 9/11 attacks were planned in Hamburg, Germany and, apparently, Madrid, Spain, not by al-Qaida in Afghanistan, as the US claimed. The planners and executors of the attacks were mostly Saudis, not Afghans.
The more the corrupt western politicians and media whores demonized [Hugo] Chavez, the more Venezuelans loved him. They understood completely that anyone damned by Washington was God’s gift to the world.
The study of history is a powerful antidote to contemporary arrogance. It is humbling to discover how many of our glib assumptions, which seem to us novel and plausible, have been tested before, not once but many times and in innumerable guises; and discovered to be, at great human cost, wholly false.
In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.
Let us then come to a preliminary finding, to the effect that the past lends itself all too readily to use by those who have a political axe to grind. Nothing works better to further a cause—good or bad—than to lend it legitimacy by supplying it with a long heritage.
I am frankly opposed to this war criminal stuff. It is not cricket and is Semitic. I am also opposed to sending POW's to work as slaves in foreign lands (i.e., sent by the US to the USSR's Gulags, France), where many will be starved to death.
Genl George S Patton, Sep 14, 1945 (The Patton Papers, vol 2, p 750)
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.
Both Alex Jones and Glenn Beck say the Boston Marathon bombing is the most important story they've ever covered. Neither one will ever say a word against Israel or Jews, no matter how well deserved. Alex simply doesn't bring up the subject, and Beck thinks of Israel and Jews as God's chosen. So any negative role either might play is not going to figure in this discussion or any other.

PROOF! Boston Marathon Bombing is Staged Terror Attack
Unlike Oaklahoma City the FBI cannot confiscate all of the surveillance, cell phone, and thousands of cameras that were at the finish line of Boston Marathon. 4Chan posted dozens of photos showing Navy Seal or Private Security personnel carrying the same black back packs which are the same style backpacks showed in FBI photos. It's becoming crystal clear. Get these articles and this video out to everyone you know.

Leave it to Russia Today to bring us the news the American mainstream news isn't. But let's hope they follow up.
Russia Today YouTube introduction: The Boston bombing suspects are 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who remains at large, and his brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnayev [sic], who was killed after a police car chase. Their family originates from Russia's North Caucasus, but settled in the United States more than a decade ago. RT talks to the mother of the two suspects, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva.
On the other hand, according to Russia Today the father of the two brothers, Anzor Tsarnaev, confessed to reporters that he talked with his son about the bombing earlier this week.
“We talked about the bombing. I was worried about them," he said.
Anzor Tsarnaev called on his son to give up peacefully. At the same time he warned that if the U.S. kills his son, "all hell will break loose."

Ernie Pyle grave, Punchbowl Cemetery/Click photo for full size
Ernie Pyle, famed WWII journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner, was killed by enemy fire on April 18, 1945 on Iejima, Okinawa, Japan, three months before the war ended. He was well-known among Americans, who followed his stories about the war in both the European and Pacific theaters.
The commanding general at Iejima, known at the time as Ie Shima (both are alternative Japanese pronunciations of the same kanji), reported Pyle's death to his superiors as follows: "I regret to report that War Correspondent Ernie Pyle, who made such a great contribution to the morale of our foot soldier, was killed in the battle of Ie Shima today."
His remains were removed from Okinawa to be re-interred at the new Punchbowl Cemetery, more formally known as the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, in 1949. In the immediate years that followed, Punchbowl was often noted as the cemetery where Ernie Pyle was laid to rest.
This writer remembers meeting a man in Florida in 1988 or so who reminisced about Ernie Pyle, whom he knew through their mutual membership in a New York City go club. Go is a Japanese game similar to chess, but reputed to be more complicated. The man said Ernie was a good player. Back then there were few to no Japanese members of the club, and it was an obscure hobby in the U.S.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is interviewed by the BBC's aggressive chief international correspondent, Canadian Lyse Doucet. It sounds like Israel is arming Syrian rebels, but he refuses to confirm this.
The pilot glanced outside his cockpit and froze. He blinked hard and looked again, hoping it was just a mirage. But his co-pilot stared at the same horrible vision.
"My God, this is a nightmare," the co-pilot said.
"He's going to destroy us," the pilot agreed.
The men were looking at a gray German Messerschmitt fighter hovering just three feet off their wingtip. It was five days before Christmas 1943, and the fighter had closed in on their crippled American B-17 bomber for the kill.

This gives a small but significant glimpse into the kind of "information" our elected officials are getting from the company that many of the people, if not their elected representatives, love to hate.
