I've been calling Juan Cole 'Langley' as a sort of a joke based on the fact his 'informed' opinions always seem to parallel those of the CIA, but it is no joke.  Remember the lame attempt to polish his flagging reputation by making it appear there was a government dirty tricks campaign against him?  Ha!

The Hariri assassination indictment is based on no confession, no witness testimony, and no physical evidence, but entirely premised on statistical analysis of cell phone use.  Bellemare is Canadian, and if he attempted to use this type of argument in a Canadian prosecution he would immediately be charged with the murder of the judge, who would have laughed himself to death.  Using the same analysis, they could have found thousands and thousands of imaginary networks of people carrying cell phones in Beirut who had never met each other and had nothing whatsoever to do with the Hariri assassination.  It is circular - they started with the people they wanted to pin it on, and worked backwards.  Nezrallah's evidence pointing to Israel, a country with a long documented history of assassinations in Lebanon by blowing up cars, is infinitely stronger.

Gawker:  "Julian Assange Accidentally Uploaded His Secret Files to the Internet"

Gizmodo:  "Wikileaks Accidentally Released Dangerous Unredacted Cables"

Note how both Gawker and Gizmodo quite wrongly blame Assange for something that is clearly not his fault.  Gawker Media is almost certainly another American intelligence asset, like Wired.

"Norway’s Terror as Systemic Destabilization: Breivik, the Arms-for-Drugs Milieu, and Global Shadow Elites"  Scott, who used to be a god in JFK assassination circles but is rapidly losing favor, throws out a lot of names without any proof.  Tying Breivik to specific European right-wingers might almost be seen as part of a cover-up.  Of course, somebody financed and encouraged Breivik, and it is possible, well, likely, that that person (or persons) disguised his identity and motivations to Breivik.

Israel goes all Yinon on Turkey:
  1. "Why Israel (and Jeffrey Goldberg) are championing the Kurds"
  2. "Israel turns tables on Turkey"
Turkey is too valuable an ally for this to continue if the Turks take the hint and back down.

Too busy to blog, but the most important story is probably the financial backing of American Islamophobia:
  1. "Fear, Inc.:  The Roots of the Islamophobia Network in America"
  2. "Fear, Incorporated: Who's paying for all that Islamophobic paranoia?"
  3. "Aubrey & Joyce Chernick and the Fairbrook Foundation"
  4. "The Park51 money trail".
Islamophobia isn't some grass-roots fear of the American stupids, but a political campaign of hate funded by the usual suspects, the ultra-right billionaires and the American Jewish billionaires.

The people cheering on the streets of Tripoli?  You'd be cheering too if it appeared that psychopathic monsters were going to stop dropping bombs on your children.  By the way, Canada - or at least its national Jewish newspaper - wants you to know that it has a disproportionate amount of psychopathic monsters.  Proud of it, in fact.

Quixotic Joust:  "Motive: To Make Sure Israel Kept the Bomb?"  The 'Jews did it' theory for the JFK assassination has exactly the same problem as the similar theory for September 11:  the Jews did not control the gatekeepers, who intentionally lifted the gate to allow the atrocity to happen.  At most, there might be a Zionist subcontractor involved for the usual reason that the Jews as a collective form a sort of private intelligence agency, and provide plausible deniability to those who hire them.  Motive and means isn't enough - we need to see some real proof of involvement.

Gadaffi and the lesson of Serbia

When NATO wants to remove a political regime from a relatively organized country, it carpet bombs heavily-populated civilian areas until the leader, out of concern for his own people, leaves.  The paradox is that the leader is portrayed in NATO propaganda as a ruthless monster who doesn't care about the civilian population, and yet the NATO plan depends on the assumption that the carpet bombing and mass slaughter of civilians will force the leader out as he actually does care.

This particular mass civilian slaughter was part of a 'duty to protect' movement from the so-called left, and involved the mass lying participation of the Western media (who are reaching new lows every day with their 'coverage' of Libya and Syria), leaving Gadaffi with no chance at any kind of humanitarian argument in the NATO countries.  The 'left' didn't want to hear it, and there was nothing to hear anyway, given the news black-out.

Milošević gave up to save the Serbian people from further slaughter. What could Gadaffi do to save his people and yet continue the resistance against Sarko, Cameron and Obama? Pretend to give up, falling away to allow the NATO mercenaries to 'win' - thus providing an end to the need to carpet bomb civilians - and then continue the fight as long-term guerrilla warfare, eventually forcing the NATO countries into even more ruinous expense to keep the rebels in power.

It is a brilliant strategic plan, but does Gadaffi have the money and troops to carry it out?

It appears the Americans thought that NATO was about to disappear in a cloud of embarrassment if the rebels were unable to defeat Gadaffi, so sent in mercenary ringers to finish the job that mass civilian slaughter was unable to accomplish. Now we get to see what a coalition government of
  1. American colonialist stooges and 
  2. 'al Qaeda'
looks like!

Daniel Domscheit-Berg is no good:
"WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's former right-hand man has irrevocably destroyed 3500 unpublished files leaked to the whistleblower site including the complete US no-fly list, five gigabytes of Bank of America documents and detailed information about 20 neo-Nazi groups.
Daniel Domscheit-Berg, who left WikiLeaks last year after a falling out with Assange, revealed the document destruction in an interview with Der Spiegel.
WikiLeaks has hit back, accusing Domscheit-Berg of being in bed with US intelligence agencies and of jeopardising the leaking of “many issues of public importance, human rights abuses, mass telecommunications interception, banking and the planning of dozens of neo-nazi groups”

"Read the 1st sentence: how dare Egyptians care about Egypt more than about Israel" It is remarkable how Jews, writing in a nominally American paper to a largely American audience, write as if they were always writing in a Zionist newspaper. Nobody notices.

About time:  "West Memphis Three Go Free – But At What Cost?"  Note the lengths the prosecutors went to protect themselves from the repercussions of wrongdoing.

"Why is the US Media Going Easy on the Rapidly Widening Murdoch Scandal?"  "Phone hacking: News of the World reporter's letter reveals cover-up"

"How Michele Bachmann Bought the Ames Straw Poll"  The fact that she bought the result is less interesting than the fact that the mainstream media reported the result as if it meant something, without any mention of the corruption behind it.  This is less about helping Bachmann - the Powers That Be don't like her, as she is too much of a loose cannon - than protecting the dubious reputation of the American political system.

"Did D. Harold Byrd Sell out to Israelis?" [link to the revised article]. 

Why do the Jews/Israelis so often end up as the third party in conspiracy stories?  Answer:
  1. they are all 'one-issue guys', building Anti-Assimilation Land, and will do anything to advance the goal;
  2. they lack all patriotic ties to the non-Israeli country they have the temporary misfortune of living in;
  3. they make a perfect patsy to protect the main players should something go wrong (and they don't mind playing the patsy as long as the reward is paid); and
  4. they operate, as a collective, as a quasi parallel intelligence agency, with demonstrated discretion, if not competence.
You can see why operators like Churchill and Angleton were such 'philo-Semites'.

"Oswald's Quaker connection in New Orleans and Mexico City"

"Did D. Harold Byrd Sell out to Israelis?"  This posting has disappeared so this is from the Google cache.  Following the uranium trail back to the Israeli nuclear program.

Pilger:  "Damn it or fear it, the forbidden truth is an insurrection in Britain"  The consistency and backasswardness of the official explanation gives me a strong feeling that we are entering the end of an era.

"The 9/11 "Truther" comic sends you back in time to save the Twin Towers"  Note the comments.  The September 11 conspiracy has been turned into a discussion of the issue of controlled demolition, which all intelligent people find laughable, and thus all the many detailed political/forensic questions are completely ignored.

"CIA in 1960 thought Cuba invasion plan was "unachievable" [Corrected]"  This is hilarious.  The author completely misread the source material, slurred Kennedy based on the misreading, and then 'corrected' himself with a complete reversal.  Of course, this is in its way a limited hangout to protect the CIA from  the larger treason charge.  The CIA knew the Bay of Pigs was going to be a major fuck up and went into it anyway, hoping to force Kennedy to clean up the mess by starting World War III.  They even came up with the lie that Kennedy was responsible for the fuck up by refusing air support.  Kennedy had to fire Dulles for what was really High treason (Dulles should have been hanged).  Nixon called the Kennedy assassination 'the whole Bay of Pigs thing'.

"The Body on Somerton Beach"  One of the greatest of all unsolved mysteries (with some great sleuthing work).

Uninformed

I don't know exactly when Juan Cole morphed into Paul Wolfowitz.

"Professor Cole “answers” WSWS on Libya: An admission of intellectual and political bankruptcy":  "This is the kind of response one would expect from someone who is drunk."

Cockburn:  "This is one of the greatest humiliations of NATO in its history (also, to be petty, a terrific smack in the eye for the analytic and political acumen of a prime propagandist in progressive circles  for the rebels, Prof.  Juan Cole, whose blogs on Libya have been getting steadily more demented.)"

Cole:  "The UN allies won’t allow Qaddafi to take the east and massacre and imprison thousands, however much Alexander Cockburn, the Tea Party, and the World Socialist Web site would like to see that happen, or at least they object to practical steps to prevent it."

Meanwhile, NATO continues to slaughter completely innocent civilians (it is so bad that even Ban Ki-Moon is 'deeply concerned)', making Gaddafi extremely popular, and Cole will never get his reputation back.  Never.

I think the funniest of Cole's postings is his attempt to downplay and rationalize the murder by the rebels of their chief military leader.

The culture of looting

"Historian David Starkey is a big stupid stupid-head"  Note the smug self-satisfaction of those who think they are right because they have the balls to avoid political correctness.  And yet Sailer and Starkey and Cameron - all of whom effortlessly reached for the racist explanation - are completely full of shit.  There is a culture of looting, but it didn't come from Jamaican drug gangs,  It cam from Wall Street and 'The City' and the politicians, like Cameron, who facilitate high-level looting.  When you intentionally misdiagnose the problem, you are just trying to make the problem worse (while avoiding any attempt at fixing it).

"Riots and the Underclass" by Alexander Cockburn (containing an interview with Darcus Howe).

"Voice Of Reason" Considerably more accurate explanation than the one proffered by the professional racists.

"Aggression during G20 rally ‘perpetrated by police,’ judge rules":
"A Toronto judge has ruled that “adrenalized” police officers acted as aggressors at a peaceful political rally that led to dozens of arrests during last year’s G20 summit.
“The only organized or collective physical aggression at that location that evening was perpetrated by police each time they advanced on demonstrators,” Justice Melvyn Green ruled on Thursday. He was referring to a demonstration at Queen St. and Spadina Ave. on Saturday, June 26, 2010.
Green stated police criminalized political demonstration, which is “vital” to maintain a “viable democracy.”"
He is just stating the obvious, but it is still nice to hear a judge say it. Now, where's the mass firings of the police brass?

"Who’s paying for Congress to summer in Israel? Liberal foundations that give halls to Princeton and Yale and fund Human Rights Watch"   The 'Good Jews' - the ones who give money to art galleries and hospitals - are the same people who support the most vile forms of violent racist group supremacism.  By the way, some Americans are noticing that their political representatives aren't around to deal with a massive American financial crisis as they are off on a junket to Israel to receive their annual marching orders.

"Oswald: Peace Activist in Pennsylvania?"  Note the amount of effort used to create Oswald's legend.  Lee turned up in an amazing diversity of places.

"Syrian opposition admits armed insurgents are operating on fringe of uprising against Assad regime"  Couple that with lying media coverage and we really have no idea who is killing whom.  Is the Syrian government killing civilians, or are we seeing an actual civil war with the Syrian government trying to save the country from mysterious outside forces?

Agriprocessors and Joe Lieberman, the story too dangerous to tell.

"Jewish Group Says Romanian Word is Anti-Semitic"  It may well be, but note the skill of writing the article without once mentioning the word.

"Soviet KGB may have killed Albert Camus, claims paper"  Is the wreckage still around?

"The Real Strauss-Kahn Story Back at the New York Times"  The NYT published as fact some outright lies spread by the defense team.

"DSK's Accuser Is Looking More Credible, but Will It Matter?"  Of course, she was always entirely credible.  It was the DSK-protecting media that lied.

"James Galbraith on How Fraud and Bad Economic Thinking Got Us in This Mess"  The necessity of severely punishing all the fraud ties back to the de Soto arguments about the connection between wealth creation and the rule of law.  Of course, as the United States is well and truly fucked, none of the fraud will be punished.

"Israeli textbooks portray Palestinians as ‘terrorists, refugees, and primitive farmers’"  Exactly what you'd expect from a violent racist supremacist state.

"New Orleans Cops GUILTY, But Not of Murder."  Everything in New Orleans is imbued with magic, including police firearms.  This story takes me back.

"The Rebels Advance On Brega"

"Obama announces "historic" manned mission halfway to Mars."  Obama's extreme over-cleverness is leading him dangerously close to becoming a permanent joke punchline.

Obama/Osama propaganda

Remember during the days of the Bush Administration when the New Yorker was the only American magazine worth reading?  Those days are gone.

From 5 dancing shlomos in the comments:  "The Mysterious Death of Osama bin Laden: Creating Evidence Where There Is None"

Cryptome: "Funding Nicholas Schmidle" (read down to various lies described in 'More back story'). The New Yorker writer appears to be funded by CIA fronts and his father is am American Lt. General.

It would be hilarious if they got a living Osama on the helicopter and then had to make up the 'buried at sea' story in order to cover up for the helicopter crash.  Rather than omnipotent heroes, they may just be a band of incompetent goofs.

"Bloggers impeach Jennifer Rubin’s ‘Sabbath’ excuse for failing to correct her assertion that Jihadists were behind Norway massacre"  Not a shock that a violent group supremacist would lie using the esoteric rules of her group in order to hide her bigotry. 

"Aljazeera in the US" 

"The choice for Israeli protests"  I have no sympathy for these Israelis whining about how there is no money for them after years of watching the money go to build settlements, kill Arabs, and steal land.  Anyway, this won't be a problem after most of the Jews clear out after the Palestinians take over political power.

"Ben's Drunken Confession"  I didn't even know Snopes was still around.

"For those who still doubt the role of corporations in raising food prices through speculations"

"WaPo Lies About UN 'Resolution' On Syria"  All mainstream media reports on both Syria and Libya are pure lies.

"Islamophobia, Zionism and the Norway massacre"  Another pathetic attempt by a professional Islamophobe to put some distance between himself and Breivik.

`Jerusalem Post “clarifies” crazy Sunday editorial` - "As a newspaper, The Jerusalem Post strongly denounces all acts of violence against innocent civilians."  As a newspaper?

"The Mass Murderer's Manifesto"  Breivik really is a self-made man, completely determining the various analyses of him by what he tells us we should think of him.

  5. Geller:  "Clarifying the Edit"  Her extreme, almost incomprehensible moral depraavity is summarized in her line:  "Everyone has a right to self-defense."
Jeffrey Goldberg:
  1. Flapola:  "Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic, and journalistic ethics"
  2. Flapola:  "No Shame at The Atlantic?"  Goldberg's attempts to cover up his Islamophobia were so convoluted and ridiculous that commentators were suspicious from the start.
  3. "First he found WMDs in Iraq – now Jeffrey Goldberg finds ‘Jihadists did this in Norway’"
