  1. The neocons should all be charged with treason.

  2. Karen is one of the biggest unsung heroes in the US IMO. Her, Kurt Sonnefield, Sibel, Phil Giraldi, Ray McGovern, and Barry Jennings(RIP).

  3. Michael Chertoff, the real terrorist… Did you see this and the XMas blow up my balls bomber i.e patsy? WHy is Israeli security company always involved in all of these "terrorist attacks"? It was they who let the "age 50ish, wealthy looking Indian man" talk them into letting the Nigerian on the plane w/o a passport.

  4. If one wishes to know the provenance of Al-Qaeda video’s, intelligence and general mainstream media one should investigate Rita Katz.

  5. Netanyahu’s “Clean Break” document written before 9/11 should be read if one wishes to understand the Iraq war.

  6. It's hard to define what a neo-con is, but I wouldn't mind putting a couple dozen individuals on trial. Let Wolfowitz and GWB be cell-mates for life; it'd be a punishment worse than death.

  7. There are no innocent politicians the buck stops with them. If politicians are deceived they should say so publicly but they will not because they fear losing their power so as I stated there are no innocent politicians.

  8. —>>

    I can't remember ever seeing a list of Old Bin's trolling videos, at least some of which were faked (either obviously or not), or scriptwritten by a California Jihadi (hell yeah, California!). Anyone have one?

  9. A neo-con, basically [from the scoop Jackson days aka MR Boeing] cheerleaders for the MIC to create and foment wars of profits from the Cold War fraud to the fraudelent 'War on Terror'. The are the ''Team B' liars make stuff up.

  10. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Feith, Wolfowitz, and ALL of the Zionist-Neocons should be put on trial for war crimes, convicted, and hung! The leaders of Israel should also be put on trial for war crimes, convicted, and hung!

  11. And the Generals who went on TV to sell the Iraq war were all neocons? The CIA is neocon? Big Oil and war profiteering were not factors at all? Just the dual loyalty to Israel?

    Re: Iggy. When do you expect answers from US intel? Last I checked nobody at the CIA has ever explained their pre-9/11 conduct or has come forward to explain why Abdulmutallab info wasn't passed on to the TSA. Instead they hide behind national security classification or "ongoing investigation" and the politicians cover for them.

  12. Neocons have a hard-on for warmongering and imperialism. (Of course, they never do any of the fighting.) And if the warmongering and imperialism is on behalf of Israel–well, so much the better! Those Zionist darlings in Tel Aviv must be lavishly propped up by their U.S. sugar daddy.

  13. My best regards to Colonel Kwiatkowski. She saw the machinations of the neocon scum up close and personal. Learn from her.

  14. It's time to pull back the curtain and let the sunlight shine down on those who need exposing.
    Call them by name, converse with your fellow Americans and share what you know with all who'll listen.
