Dick Cheney’s Secret Presidential Bid

Got this from the pilots for 911 truth.

It sure ruined my weekend.

————————————————————————————————

According to an insider with connections on Capitol Hill, Cheney’s closely held presidential aspirations remain as secret as “the Manhattan Project.”

Why, he wants to know, haven’t American reporters asked the most routine press question of a sitting vice president: “Yo, dude! You running?”

“The silence is deafening,” this insider says. “By June 2007 the president would have should have endorsed a candidate.”

Instead…

“Zero absolute silence. And nobody’s asked. Somehow, some way, the obvious is not obvious. Basically this is an embargoed subject.”

This Washington insider has made numerous phone calls to various news desks at the New York Times, Washington Post, Washington Times, Chicago Sun and the Chicago Tribune. “The reaction I got categorically across the board was, ‘Please don’t ask me that question. I can’t talk about it. I can’t go there.’ I called the folks over at CNN I asked them the same thing. And I got the same reaction – embargoed. Political desk, national desk, local desk – [random] assignment editors – I worked my way through the chain… Didn’t matter how high up the chain they were – newbies, vets – these are people who eat, sleep and breathe The Next Big Thing you would think this would be.”

Yet, again and again came their unanimous nervous response: “I can’t have this conversation right now. It’s not something I can talk about.”

The Mega-Lie Called the “War on Terror”: A Masterpiece of Propaganda

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the state can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie … The truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the state.” –Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda in Nazi Germany, 1933-1945

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the administration of George W. Bush has told and repeated a lie that is “big enough” to confirm Joseph Goebbels’ testimony. It is a mega-lie, and the American people have come to believe it. It is the “War on Terror.”

The Bush administration endlessly recites its mantra of deceit:

The War on Terror was launched in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. It is intended to enhance our national security at home and to spread democracy in the Middle East.

This is the struggle of our lifetime; we are defending our way of life from an enemy intent on destroying our freedoms. We must fight the enemy in the Middle East, or we will fight him in our cities.

This is classic propaganda. In Goebbels’ terms, it is the “state” speaking its lie, but the political, economic, and military consequences of the Bush administration lie are coming into view, and they are all catastrophic. If truth is the enemy of both the lie and George Bush’s “state,” then the American people need to know the truth.

Blackwater guards killed 16 as U.S. touted progress

Funny how Blackwater is always at the centre of events that will increase tension between Iraqies and the invaders. 

BAGHDAD — On Sept. 9, the day before Army Gen. David Petraeus, the U.S. military commander in Iraq, and U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker told Congress that things were getting better, Batoul Mohammed Ali Hussein came to Baghdad for the day.

A clerk in the Iraqi customs office in Diyala province, she was in the capital to drop off and pick up paperwork at the central office near busy al Khilani Square, not far from the fortified Green Zone, where top U.S. and Iraqi officials live and work. U.S. officials often pass through the square in heavily guarded convoys on their way to other parts of Baghdad.

War pimp allert: ‘Combat Outpost Shocker:’ The base that could spark Iran conflict

The US military is building a base in Iraq just five miles from the border with Iran to prevent cross-border arms smuggling.

Incident Reports Fault Blackwater in Fallujah Ambush

On February 7, 2007, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing to initiate an investigation into the performance and accountability of private military contractors in Iraq. The hearing included the examination of one prominent case study: a pivotal event of the Iraq War in which four Blackwater USA security contractors were ambushed and killed in Fallujah on March 31, 2004, while escorting a convoy.

At the hearing, Blackwater’s General Counsel testified that the company acted responsibly in preparing for and executing the Fallujah mission. He asserted that the vehicles involved had an “appropriate” amount of protection and that the level of staffing was “the norm” given “the threat as it was known on the ground in Iraq.”

Ms. Moneypenny and Blackwater – Yanking on Loose Threads

There’s an itch that I haven’t been able to scratch in the past couple of days. The State Department has forbidden Blackwater, LLC from providing documents to a congressional subcommittee investigating security contractors in Iraq. In particular, Henry Waxman’s committee is looking into the Blackwater Massacre in Baghdad – but is getting stonewalled every inch of the way…

Commentary By: Richard BlairKiazan Moneypenny has been in the news over the last day or so. Who’s Ms. Moneypenny, you might ask? She’s the State Department contract official who directed Blackwater not to disclose any information to the congressional committee investigating the Blackwater Massacre in Iraq without State Department approval. Her title at State is Contracting Officer – Office of Acquisition Management.

But it wasn’t always so. In fact, it was only recently that she acquired the title.
