The Washington Child Sex Ring Coverup : The Franklin Child Sex Ring Implicating the Bush Whitehouse
The following archive paints a chilling portrait of what is really going on in the upper echelons of the ruling elite here in America. The story involves children from orphanages in Nebraska being flown around the United States by top Republican officials in order to engage in child sex orgies with America’s ruling elite. It is a fact that during the 1980′s, child sexual services were provided by top Republican officials to key, bureaucrats and diplomats but most importantly, there is a chilling proximity of all of these events and personalities, to the President of the United States at the time, George H.W. Bush. And there have been victims who claim that the President himself engaged in the activities. It is a tale of child sex, murder, espionage, blackmail, and huge payoffs. And all the players are involved. From the White House to the CIA to the media barrons to the Republican elite – right down to the orphanages where they procured their victims.
War Criminal : The Bush/Cheney Holocaust in Iraq: Criminality, Immorality, Incompetence and Desperation
According to Article VI of our U.S. Constitution, treaties entered into by the United States become the “Supreme Law of the Land.” At the urging of President Harry Truman, on July 28, 1945, the U.S. Senate ratified the United Nations Charter by a vote of 89 to 2, with 5 abstentions. Thus the UN Charter became the supreme law of the land. And, thus, the United States was legally prohibited from waging war unless attacked, unless an attack was imminent, or unless the United Nations approved such a war.

Smoking Gun: Rumsfeld ordered torture – US WarCrime
VIDEO: Former head of Abu Ghraib, Karpinski, willing to testify.
There was no “smoking gun” found in Iraq in the form of WMD because there was no smoking gun of that flavor to be found. A smoking gun of a different flavor has surfaced, however, placing Rumsfeld at the helm of torture at Abu Ghraib and beyond.
US defense chiefs denied knowledge of Abu Ghraib abuse : US WarCrime
NEW YORK (AFP) – A general who investigated US troops sexually humiliating Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison said in a report out Saturday that top Pentagon officials denied knowledge of lurid photographs of the acts.
Army Major General Antonio Taguba said he met with then secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld and other top officials and described to them some of the contents of a report he had prepared on the notorious prison.
The General’s Report : How Antonio Taguba, who investigated the Abu Ghraib scandal, became one of its casualties
Taguba knew his report would make him unpopular: “If I lie, I lose. And, if I tell the truth, I lose.”
On the afternoon of May 6, 2004, Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba was summoned to meet, for the first time, with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in his Pentagon conference room. Rumsfeld and his senior staff were to testify the next day, in televised hearings before the Senate and the House Armed Services Committees, about abuses at Abu Ghraib prison, in Iraq. The previous week, revelations about Abu Ghraib, including photographs showing prisoners stripped, abused, and sexually humiliated, had appeared on CBS and in The New Yorker. In response, Administration officials had insisted that only a few low-ranking soldiers were involved and that America did not torture prisoners. They emphasized that the Army itself had uncovered the scandal.
Gen. Taguba claims Pentagon knew of abuse
The Army two-star general who led the first investigation into detainee abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq believes senior defense officials were involved in directing abusive interrogation policies, according to an article on the New Yorker magazine’s Web site.
In case you missed it: Abu Ghraib Tactics Were First Used at Guantanamo
Interrogators at the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, forced a stubborn detainee to wear women’s underwear on his head, confronted him with snarling military working dogs and attached a leash to his chains, according to a newly released military investigation
Guantánamo: An Extraordinary Humanity
The British government is, barely noticed, performing a sinister, potentially life threatening, legal slight of hand, regarding prisoners held without trial in Guantánamo Bay, uncharged with any crime, now cleared, after years of incarceration, for release.
Those who have fled their countries in fear of their lives, been granted leave to remain in Britian — refugee status the British government have now revoked, since they have been away from the country too long – in Guantánamo Bay. Therefore, they are in danger of being returned by the UK Authorities, to the countries from which they fled in terror. The (London) Independent, in an editorial (15th June 2007) calls this: “A shocking betrayal that shames our government”.
U.S., Russia: Iraq had no WMDs
UNITED NATIONS — The U.S. and Russia have agreed to dismantle the U.N. agency that searched Iraq for weapons of mass destruction and affirm that Saddam Hussein’s government had no such arms at the time of the American invasion in March 2003.
The Security Council will adopt a resolution the last week in June to close the U.N. Monitoring, Inspection and Verification Commission, created in 1999 to search Iraq for biological and chemical weapons, Belgian and British diplomats said. The measure will also end the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency’s mandate to look for nuclear arms in Iraq.
U.N. inspectors found no banned weapons before or since the invasion.
US Soldier Sodomised Female Iraqi Detainee: US War Crime
A Seymour Hersh interview with General Anthony Taguba, who investigated Abu Ghraib, confirms details of the abuse not previously public. It also confirms that the torture was sanctioned from the top. Not quoted here, but General Janis Karpinski has testified that she saw a memorandum on “Interrogation techniques” pinned to the wall by military intelligence at Abu Ghraib, signed by Donald Rumsfeld himself. Karpinski was at the top of the line of command of the guards – the military police – but not the interrogators. Taguba here notes that Rumsfeld not only denied advance knowledge, but even tried afterwards to deny having seen Taguba’s report or knowing what had happened.
Doubtless more of the detail of the war crimes at Abu Ghraib, and of extraordinary rendition and Guantanamo, will continue to emerge in the next few months as the war party becomes totally discredited.

The Value of Arab Lives
The New York Post, which can be accurately defined as a ‘rag’ in the most pejorative sense of the word, is having a field day describing the factional conflict in Gaza and Iraq. Jubilantly crowing about the Arab ‘culture of violence and suicide’, writers repeatedly speak in terms of ‘having given the Arabs a chance’ to govern themselves that has been squandered. They then declare it now to be time for civilised nations like the ‘U.S.’ and ‘Israel’ to intervene as if the U.S. and Zionist entity had not been involved in the destruction of the Arab Nation from the start!
What makes this sort of journalism dangerous is the fact that most Americans do not care about Iraq or Gaza enough to learn the facts that underline the factional conflicts. What makes it utterly outrageous is knowledge of the negligible value that the so-called ‘civilised nations’ determined for Arab lives in the first place.
Hamas official: Dahlan was planning Gaza takeover, large-scale massacres in Gaza
