How to Deal With the 1 Percent
Mind blowing speech by Robert Welch in 1958 predicting Insiders plans to destroy America
THE MADNESS OF A LOST SOCIETY
Bounty Hunting, Islamophobia and Blaming the Victims
by Felicity Arbuthnot
The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity. (Andre Gide, 1869-1951)
As the Middle East burns and is being destroyed for threatening not even one western country, that its people are being systematically terrorized, its great, luminous history and culture dismantled and erased, by the west or its proxy paid and hired terrorist gangs, is now well documented.
Less under the spotlight is the litany of provocations and double standards, which if directed at a majority Christian or Jewish population or any other religion or culture, would attract an avalanche of condemnation, approbation and anti-defamation legal actions.
Given the litany of derision, insults, filth and humiliation aimed at Islam, its followers, and nationals of majority Muslim countries, the impartial observer can only wonder at the tolerance shown towards those insulting and denigrating. The proportionately few freelancers furious who have taken revenge pale against the ongoing, multi-national George W. Bush declared:"Crusade." The 11th of September 2001 is not included in the above comment, far too many question marks about a tragic day not alone remain, but continue to multiply, with all forensic evidence, of course - countless thousands tons of it - shipped out of the U.S. to be used as building foundations in the Indian sub-continent. extraordinary.
Lest we forget (as ever) it is worth re-capping on just a few of the gutter- level provocations, desecrations and insults heaped on Muslims and Islam.
The U.S. Army went to both Afghanistan and Iraq equipped with Bibles in the relevant languages to hand out to all and sundry, in town and villages, violating (Army) General Order One, which forbids proselytizing. Never mind it being brazen cheek and culturally insulting crassness.
In May 2009, in Afghanistan, when the story came to light, the army publicly burned them, the Pentagon still seemingly in denial. However a video came to light of the most senior Chaplain urging his men to be bounty hunters for Jesus, somewhat wrong footing the Pentagon.
Lieutenant-Colonel Gary Hensley, Chief of the US Military Chaplains in Afghanistan, told soldiers of their responsibility "to be a witness" for Christ:
"The special forces guys - they hunt men basically. We do the same things, as Christians. We hunt people for Jesus ... we hunt them down," he said.
"Get the hound of heaven after them, so we get them into the Kingdom. That's what we do, that's our business." (i)
In context, after the Iraq invasion, it also came to light that the Bush Jr. Administration's top-secret "Secretary of Defence Worldwide Intelligence Updates," were "glaringly covered with quotes from the Bible" during Donald Rumsfeld's tenure at the Pentagon.
"The cover sheets were the brainchild of Major General Glen Shaffer, Christian and Director for Intelligence, serving both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secretary of Defence." (ii) The General's Bible study clearly had not got as far as the "Thou shalt not kill" bit.
Then there was Abu Ghraib, the degradation, humiliation, sexual perversities, torture and murder at the hands (literally) of those of, and under, U.S. military command. Defiling of Qu'rans was reported to be also an ongoing, deliberate provocation and humiliation, as has been reported repeatedly from Gulag Guantanamo, with Qu'rans also dropped into toilets by guards. Prisoners also were smeared with excrement. (iii)
In Iraq, defiling interiors of Mosques and the Qu'rans within are multiply recorded, as in schools, homes and offices, with claims of excrement covered walls, furniture and Holy Books by troops another recurring claim. Many Mosque defilings have also been recorded in France and the U.S.
Further, nearly three years after it first came to light (January 2010) the "Jesus rifle," used by US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan is still in use. The Pentagon declared it had ordered the erasing of a code referring to Biblical passages that had been inscribed on scopes of standard rifles carried by troops.
It now emerges that code remains on rifles used in Afghanistan (iv.) Stamped on to the metal is the code "JN8:12," referring to the New Testament passage John 8:12: "Then spake Jesus to them saying" 'I am the light of the world.' "
Other rifle scopes manufactured by the Michigan-based Trijicon company carry codes identifying passages from the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, Corinthians and the apocalyptic Revelation. Some soldiers have argued that their lives are endangered by the practise reinforcing the concept of the U.S. declared"Crusade." Indeed it does.
Mikey Weinstein, founder of The Military Freedom Foundation (v), who first drew attention to the issue after receiving numerous complaints from active duty servicemen and women responded:
"It's constitutionally noxious. It's an embarrassment and makes us look exactly like the tenth incarnation of the Crusades ..."
In September a vicious, Islamophobic hate advertisement went up on the New York subway, arguably taking America back to the Wild West and to Mississippi's darkest days of racial hatred. (vi)
Denmark, of course, brought the world the shameful cartoons of the Prophet, reprinted from time to time, as last month in France, by another obscure publication desperately seeking limelight by any means of insult and denigration of others.
Then there is "Pastor" Terry Jones, of the "Dove World Outreach Center" - a misnomer on all counts - who espouses burning Qu'rans and who, with about twenty others, burned copies on the 28th of April this year. His "dove-like world outreach" also drove him to write a book entitled, "Islam is the Devil."
This year, he also hanged an effigy of Barack Obama in front of his Dove Centre. There are surely some strange concepts of "Christianity."
Jones was also reported by the Atlantic magazine to be involved in promotion of "The Innocence of Muslims," a piece of screened garbage which caused riots across the globe, American Embassies to be attacked, then - as French and British and others - closed. Jones screened it on the 11th of September this year, declaring the day: "International Judge Mohammad Day."
The piece of rubbish was seemingly devised by a man with three names, on parole for fraud, who is currently incarcerated again (vii). Further hypocrisies and double standards of enormity are worth a visit.
Perhaps the biggest howl of outrage from western commentators and politicians was when Pakistan's railways Minister, Ghulam Ahmad Bilour, offered a bounty of £100,000 for the death of the variously named video maker, adding that a businessman from Lahore had offered to put up a further $400,000. This, the day after twenty died in Pakistan, in enraged protests at the video.
"Freedom of speech should not be used as an excuse to attack Islam," said the Minister. "I call upon these countries and say. Yes, freedom of expression is there, but you should make laws regarding people insulting our Prophet."
The U.S. State Department, part of a government for whom assassinations and bounties have become a way of life, furiously condemned Minister Bilour for an "inflammatory and inappropriate" stance. Attempts at scaling a moral high ground from an Administration which targets humanity with drones, rather than law, laughs over the assassination of Libya's leader and boasts of that of Osama bin Laden, verges on black farce.
And here is a woefully incomplete example of U.S. bounty hunts:
In 1998, under the Clinton Administration, "The CIA offered Afghanistan's anti-Taliban opposition leader a substantial bounty ... for the capture of Osama bin Laden, dead or alive." This in spite of the fact that there was a ban on foreign assassinations at the time.
President Clinton is quoted as commenting, "At the time, we did everything we can do. I authorised the arrest and, if necessary, the killing of Osama bin Laden, and we actually made contact with a group in Afghanistan to do it." (viii)
The FBI offered $25 million for Osama bin Laden. (ix) On the invasion of Afghanistan (the 7th of October 2001), the CIA printed leaflets for distribution across the country for knowledge of his whereabouts or capture, in Dari and Pashtu, with contact details for the Coalition Authorities. (x)
"Our hope is that the dual incentive of helping to free that country from a very repressive regime and to get the foreigners and the al-Qaeda out of there, coupled with substantial monetary rewards, will incentivise... a large number of people to begin crawling through those tunnels and caves looking for the bad folks," commented Donald Rumsfeld. (xi)
As Andy Worthington has written, a "chaotic assemblage of prisoners" was handed to the U.S. military from Afghanistan and Pakistan as a result of leaflets dropped from planes reading, "You can receive millions of dollars for helping the anti-Taliban force catch al-Qaeda and Taliban murderers. This is enough money to take care of your family, your village, your tribe for the rest of your life - pay for livestock, doctors, school books and housing for all your people." (xii)
After the illegal 2003 Iraq invasion, the U.S. offered $25 million for Saddam Hussein, the country's legitimate President and $30 million for his two sons, Uday and Qusay. In November 2003, a further $10 million was offered for General Izzat Ibrahim al-Doury, Vice Chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council and Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party. (xiii)
"This week we will be launching a public information campaign across Iraq to promote the $10 million reward for information leading to (al-Doury's) capture or killing," Dan Senor, spokesman for the U.S.-led civilian authority in Iraq, told a news conference (xiv) dressed in spurred cowboy boots, stetson, a solid silver six shooter wedged in his belt, whilst whirling a hangman's noose in his right hand. (I made the last bit up.)
Other examples of bribes for bodies by the United States includes $10 million for the leader of a Pakistani group "blamed" for the 2008 Mumbai attack (xv) which, it is pointed out, "could complicate U.S. Pakistan relations at a tense time ..." and which, it might be surmised, was a matter for India to pursue and nothing to do with the U.S.
In June this year, $7 million was offered for the believed leader of the Al Shabab group accused of attacks in Somalia, Uganda and Kenya, $5 million each for four alleged colleagues and a $3 million each for a further three (xvi.) "Al Shabab counts hundreds of foreign fighters in its ranks, including foreign fighters with experience in the Iraq and Afghan wars." (As do the U.S., the U.K. and their allies.)
This primitive, predatory practise of "dead or alive" inducements for "some mother's son" aimed at the poor, the criminal, the opportunist, with all legality negated, is the brain child of the "U.S. State Department Rewards for Justice Program." This Orwellianly misnamed project was, aptly, dreamed up in 1984, during the Reagan Presidency. (xviii)
"Since the inception of the Rewards for Justice program in 1984, the United States Government has paid more than $100 million to ... people who provided actionable information ..." informs the website. Which surely brings into question on a vast scale captures, convictions and indeed, deaths.
"And therein is the paradox. America is simultaneously the most professedly Christian of the developed nations and the least Christian in its behavior," wrote Bill McKibben, in Harpers (August 2005).
Hate speech and bounty hunting is contrary to any civilized norms, but in the light of all of the above, howls of outrage at Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour's comparatively modest offering of $100,000 for the initiator of a film which insulted an estimated 1.5 billion Muslims - over one fifth of the world's population - outdo the word hypocrisy. An apt word has yet to be invented.
"I issued a statement against one man, not against all European and American people," he has commented. (Bangkok Post 25.9.2012) America's bounty remit spans continents.

False Symmetry: Teaching Holocaust in Gaza Schools
Spring has turned red in Gaza with a new Israeli massacre. Late Monday night Israeli combat planes pounded Northern Gaza and murdered two children and three adults whose only crime was playing football in front of their house. At the same day Haaretz published a report complaining that Hamas protests UN plans to teach Gazans about the Holocaust. It was also the very day that the Knesset in Israel approved the Nakaba Law, an absurd legislation that bans Palestinian citizens from commemorating the Nakba.
This is no mere coincidence. Nor is it the first time that Israel’s massacring of Palestinian children is followed by absurd demands to teach Jewish victimhood in Palestinian schools, while working to prevent its Palestinian citizens from commemorating their tragedy at the same time.
On November 6, America's sham process occurs. On January 22, Israelis face the same Hobson's choice. Real choice is excluded from both ballots. Democracy is hypocrisy in both countries.
Congress recessed until post-election. Israel's Knesset just adjourned. On October 16, Haaretz headlined "As Knesset ends term, we should say 'good riddance,' " saying:
It's Israel's most anti-democratic one ever. It "brought the tyranny of the majority to new heights." Hardline extremists ran "roughshod over vulnerable minorities, first and foremost Israeli Arabs, as well as over civil society groups and human rights organizations."
They targeted free expression and assembly. They intimidated independent media. They supported lawless settlement expansions on stolen Palestinian land.
"(L)ed by Netanyahu and other senior ministers, (they) searched tirelessly for ways to violate" High Court rulings and make "state prosecution(s) odious."
Israel's 18th Knesset trashed rule of law principles. It mocked democratic values. It governed to the right of some despots. It gave Judaism a bad name. It enacted one repressive law after another. It took unprincipled shame to its highest level in Israeli history.
As its term ends, "good riddance" to what no free society should tolerate. Netanyahu, of course, is its worst member. He's a lawless world class thug.
He makes even sham democracy look like despotism. Israeli Arabs and Occupied Palestinians feel his harshness most. He despises Islam and shows it. He's unfit to serve. He belongs in prison. He's an illegitimate head of state.
On October 9, he announced early elections. Originally scheduled for September 2013, he said they'll occur in three months. He "decided for the benefit of Israel to hold (them) as quickly as possible."
He doesn't give a damn about Israel's benefit, just his own and supportive hardliners. On national television, he lied. He claimed his coalition government couldn't agree on a 2013 national budget. He said Israel's "most stable government in decades" is ending.
He claimed it helped strengthen Israel's security and fortify its economy during hard times. He stressed preventing Iran from having nuclear weapons.
He knows they have no plans to obtain them. Israel's so-called "stable government" is its most repressive ever. Early elections aren't because of budget disagreements. Netanyahu wants them when he's most able to retain a parliamentary majority.
Western and Israeli politics aren't about issues. They're about securing power and keeping it.
On October 11, Netanyahu announced elections will occur on January 22. It's two days after America's inauguration. Netanyahu openly favors Romney. He and Obama express mutual dislike.
It's hard imagining why anyone likes either of them. They both head rogue regimes. They rule lawlessness. In 2013, expect no change in either country.
Polls show Obama and Romney closely matched. An Israeli Dialog poll shows Netanyahu's hardline coalition favored to win. Israelis denied choice seem stuck with him. Dread what's coming in both countries for good reason.
On October 17, Haaretz contributor Carlo Stenger headlined "Israel's upcoming elections: No hope we can believe it," saying:
Israeli voters get sham options like Americans. Reality denies them real ones. Democracy exists in name only. Like Congress, hardliners infest the Knesset like crabgrass besets lawns. It's dominant and dismissive of rule of law principles. It spurns other democratic values.
Whatever changes show up in January, they're not enough to matter. "Israeli politics are bound to remain the same. (Its) defining characteristic" reflects coalition religious and political extremism. Together they're toxic.
Netanyahu looks certain for another term. Repressive Knesset politics will follow.
"What does this mean for Israel’s future? Netanyahu has proven beyond a doubt that he is not willing to move towards a viable Palestinian state. His primary achievement this term has been to put the Palestinian issue on the backburner…."
At the same time, he prioritizes a nonexistent Iranian threat. "In less than 100 days, the people of Israel will decide who will lead them in the face of the greatest security challenges we have known since the state was established," he claimed.
"Anyone who belittles the threat posed by a nuclear Iran on Israel is not worthy of leading the state of Israel for even one day. Today, unprecedented sanctions are imposed on Iran, which issue a harsh blow to its economy. We now have capabilities to operate against Iran that we did not have in the past."
Fear is his electoral strategy. So is duplicity. Israelis, like Americans, fall for the scam every time.
Israeli voters ignore reality. They also don't address "the one, big issue that truly determines Israel's fate as the democratic homeland of the Jews - the occupation" that's continued "for more than two-thirds of Israel's history."
Failure to act responsibly assures "an inevitable tragedy." West of the Jordan, Arabs already outnumber Jews. At the same time, they're treated like sub-humans. No state can survive governing this way.
Claiming territory illegally and governing repressively "means the (eventual) end of the democratic homeland of the Jews." The "Titanic" Israel is sinking.
Stenger stopped short of admitting it sank long ago. What passes for democracy in Israel is none at all. Netanyahu enforces police state harshness. He's also recklessly belligerent.
In the last 10 days, multiple air strikes targeted Gaza. Civilian neighborhoods were struck. At least eight Palestinians were killed. Dozens were wounded.
At the same time, Israeli gunboats fired live ammunition at Palestinian fishing boats. Luckily those on board escaped injury. These type attacks happen often. Injuries result and occasional deaths.
Vessels are usually damaged and/or confiscated. Arrests often follow. Imagine being charged with the crime of fishing in their own waters. Imagine the worst of anything in Occupied Palestine.
No one is safe anywhere, any time. Going to school, pray, or shop is hazardous. So is going to sleep. Middle-of-the-night raids target peaceful civilians. No one knows who's next or when.
On October 17, Radio Bethlehem 2000 said Israeli soldiers invaded Bethlehem pre-dawn. Arrests followed. Other Palestinians were targeted in Ramallah, Nablus, East Jerusalem, and Jericho.
Homes are lawlessly broken into while people sleep. Children are terrified. Some are arrested. Others watch their fathers dragged from bed and beaten.
Democracies don't operate this way. Despotic states do routinely. Palestinian communities are violated multiple times daily. Palestinians have no rights. Gaza remains suffocating under siege. Children are treated like adults.
State terror is policy. Equity and justice are four-letter words. Freedom isn't in Israel's vocabulary. Institutionalized repression most people can't imagine explains what Palestinians endure daily.
Gazans fear more war for good reason. Full-scale invasion threats are heard. In September, IDF chief Benny Gantz said Israel "is ready to wage a war on several fronts, including Gaza where homemade projectiles are fired on Israeli" territory.
"It is not just military among us who know what to do in war. We must not put the sword in its sheath. Let's see what is next. Less than 20 km separate us from those who want to hurt Israel."
Gazans fire homemade rockets in response to Israeli provocations. Usually multiple ones occur before Palestinians act. They do so in self-defense. It's their right. International law affirms it. Israel calls it terrorism.
There's more. Netanyahu warned it's ready to interdict the latest Gaza-bound humanitarian vessel. It's Swedish owned, operating under the Finnish flag.
On October 6, it sailed from Naples. It's called Estelle. A banner displayed says "Ship to Gaza."
Finland's Foreign Ministry spokesman Risto Piiponen said Israel warned it would "take action to stop the ship from reaching land if it tries to break the blockade."
"We pointed out that it is a civilian vessel and urged them to practice restraint in any action they take," Piipopen added. Sixteen activists are on board.
Israel attacks humanitarian missions ruthlessly. On May 31, 2010, Israeli commandos murdered nine Turkish nationals in cold blood. Dozens of others on board the Mavi Marmara were accosted, beaten and arrested.
On October 11, Estelle's logbook headlined "Sailing to Gaza on the waves of freedom," saying:
"We are on board the Estelle. This sailboat is 90 years old and its presence is felt in this immense ocean as it breaks the waves on its way to Gaza. A little more than a week is left until we reach the coast of Palestine and we know that when we arrive we will not be alone."
"Thousands of people are following the route of freedom from land. They are passengers on land and they are just as important as the crew and those of us who are on board the Estelle."
"This sailboat of the Freedom Flotilla is full of solidarity that we breathe and hopefully the people on land also can feel this. Only together can we obtain a better future for all of us. For me, to break the siege on Gaza is one of the best ways to construct a better world."
Israel calls their mission and others like it a national security threat. Isn't that what all despotic regimes claim? Israel gets away with it because world leaders don't object. It's long past high time accountability was enforced.

The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday denounced the human rights record of the US, citing maltreatment of children, breach of privacy, police brutality, secret jails and freedom of expression issues.
The ministry presented the report to the lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma, which will hold hearings on the human rights issue this coming Monday.
In a sneak preview for RIA Novosti, a Duma source privy to the document quoted it as saying that hundreds of thousands of children in the United States are mistreated and that resulted in 1,600 deaths in 2010 alone.
It makes special mention of the maltreatment of children adopted from Russia.
Citing US NGOs, Russian diplomats note that “about one police officer in 100 has been involved in criminal abuses, including sexual harassment, indecent behavior or rape.”
On prisons, it says that “the US remains the country with the largest prison population in the world - 2.2 million.”
Another issue is secret CIA prisons, in particular in Poland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Thailand, Morocco, Romania and Lithuania, the report said.
The report also criticizes US legislation permitting “special services” to monitor all private electronic correspondence without a court order.
In 2011, they filed more than 1.3 million requests for information on mobile users.
“Between 2004 and 2007 the number of electronic messages monitored by US special services rose by 3,000 percent,” the report says.
FBI yet again foils their own fake terrorist plot, this time targeting the NY Federal Reserve
FBI Fed Follies
At this point I wish I could laugh at the absurdly obvious nature of the federal government’s involvement in the manufacture of domestic terrorism, but unfortunately it is far too serious a matter.
For those who think the most recent case of 21-year-old Bangladeshi national Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis and the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) major role in said case is something of a fluke, think again.
The most recent case involving Nafis has not bucked the trend in the slightest. According to USA Today‘s latest update at the time of writing this story, Nafis “allegedly met with an undercover FBI agent who provided him with inert explosives.”
Once again, we learn that the “terrorist” actually never was in contact with any real terrorists (other than those hiding behind the safety of a badge) and was never even able to procure real explosives.
Instead, as is the case with so many other cases of the government thwarting their own plots, we learn that Nafis actually would never have done anything if it were not for the help of the FBI.
The FBI’s narrative asserts that Nafis met the undercover FBI agent at a warehouse in the New York metro region where he “made the bomb, consisting of inert explosives, then assembled the detonator and armed the device in the van as the undercover agent drove to the Fed.”
In other words, as has been the case far too many times now, Nafis never was actually in possession of explosives and was never actually even able to get in contact with anyone but an undercover FBI agent posing as a terrorist.
For those who still believe that there is some giant horde of bloodthirsty terrorists hiding in American cities waiting to attack, the truths revealed by this latest manufactured terror plot will likely prove problematic.
If terrorists were indeed scattered around the United States waiting to attack as our government would like us to believe, why wasn’t Nafis able to come in contact with a single one?
Similarly, if a nun and two others can walk onto a nuclear facility, set off alarms, and still remain undetected for an extended period of time, why hasn’t a terrorist or group of terrorists already done the same?
Indeed, Nafis was never actually a threat to anyone as revealed by NBC New York in reporting, “Law enforcement officials stress that the plot was a sting operation monitored by the FBI and NYPD and the public was never at risk. The materials he believed were explosives had been rendered inoperable, officials said.”
This is the same old story we see repeated ad infinitum in the so-called war on terror.
As U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch from the Eastern District of New York stated,
He thought he was directing confederates and fellow believers. At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation’s financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement.
In reality he was never even in contact with “confederates and fellow believers” but instead like so many other recent cases Nafis was actually just dealing with the U.S. government the entire time.
“Vigilance is our watchword now and into the foreseeable future,” stated Paul J. Browne, the deputy commissioner of the New York City Police Department. “That’s why we have over 1,000 police officers assigned to counter-terrorism duties every day, and why we built the Domain Awareness System. I want to commend the NYPD detectives and FBI agents of the Joint Terrorist Task Force for the work they did in the case and in other ways every day to help New York City safe from terrorists.”
According to unnamed federal authorities, “The plot came to light as an FBI undercover agent posed as an al-Qaeda facilitator.”
Yet again we learn that the terror plot was actually facilitated by an FBI agent pretending to be al Qaeda. This has become so common one cannot help but wonder if there is a single alleged member of al Qaeda who isn’t an agent or asset of at least one U.S. government entity.
This is just reinforced by reports like that from CNN which states, “The Bangladeshi national allegedly came to the United States in January to carry out a terror attack on U.S. soil and said he had overseas connections to al-Qaeda.”
“As he attempted to recruit others to join his cell, he tried to recruit someone who turned out to be an FBI source,” the criminal complaint reportedly says according to CNN.
This type of reporting just makes it infinitely more clear what is actually going on here. The truth is that either Nafis was lying in claiming overseas connections to al Qaeda or he indeed had such connections, he just didn’t know that the supposed al Qaeda terrorists were actually U.S. government agents.
One would assume if he actually had connections to the “real” al Qaeda he would be able to procure even a tiny bit of real explosives or at least be able to tell the difference between the real deal and inert explosives.
One would also assume that if he actually had connections to the “real” al Qaeda he wouldn’t be blindly recruiting anyone and everyone including an FBI agent posing as an al Qaeda facilitator. Would he really not be in contact with a single al Qaeda operative if he actually did have connections with such a group?
It seems painfully obvious that as the details emerge the case just becomes even more clearly one of FBI-sponsored manufactured terrorism. It will be interesting to see how this is spun, especially after the damaging Senate report which revealed just how laughable the so-called FusionCenters really are in carrying out their public mission of fighting terrorism.
It will also be quite fascinating to see if and how this is spun by Obama and Romney as well as the rest of the federal government that relies on a climate of fear and paranoia to exert control.
While it the fact that this plot was being handled by the U.S. government from the start, is hardly arguable, one can reasonably expect that it will be turned into yet another reason for more spending, less rights and greater government control.

Amber Lyon reveals CNN lies and war propaganda
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad both delivered two of the most controversial speeches at the latest session of the United Nations General Assembly. And while the Israeli's speech was aired in full on CNN, the Iranian's address has been ruthlessly cut and the viewers have missed some very important points. What are the ramifications of this kind of selective reporting? RT's Liz Wahl is joined by Amber Lyon, a three-time Emmy award winning journalist who suggests that sensationalism, hype and downright propaganda is being used to push America into a war with Iran.
