Chris Woods


Chris Woods, documentary producer and freelancer for The Bureau of Investigative Journalism, discusses his article “Obama terror drones: CIA tactics in Pakistan include targeting rescuers and funerals;” why these attacks qualify as state terrorism by any sensible definition; how the MSM enables government officials to smear their critics behind a veil of anonymity; the circumstantial evidence that former CIA Director Leon Panetta was responsible for the targeting of rescuers and funeral goers; and why the time is ripe for formal investigations, now that Obama himself has outed the “secret” war in Pakistan.

    “If the Israelis truly wanted to punish the ones responsible for these acts of terrorism wouldn’t self-immolation be a more effective and accurate response?”


    “If our rulers weren’t so insulated from
    harm they might recognize the value…”

    Our government was created by European rich nobility, about the most conservative rich ruling class on earth.

    Empire USA has always been about the richest and most conservative on earth, surely not the least liberal and once jailed all the homegrown communists we could get our hands on.

    Therefore, as we are a democracy, one ruled by the 51% voting majority, are we not ruled by the 51% most conservative and wealthy?

  5. designed to 'pressure' mr. obama this sounds like a hoax from horton & woods two tired journalists? i think horton & woods are tired with president obamas outstanding budget deficit & a journalistic world which has lacked insufficient journalistic focus. part of this hoax could be designed @ possibly 'other' within the usa (anything else that might be a potential problem such as possible future president 'candidate mitt romney')? the middle east has appeared such an embarrassing mess for so many years (example afghanistan) that any 'hoax' by horton & woods may be justifiable? remember past president bill clinton did manage to ballance a usa budget?

  6. If Iran gave up nuclear program — What would happen?

    Surely the West would see it as a sign of weakness, a sign of it being terrorized into submission and then proceed to bomb Iran back to the stone age.

  7. Western morality — Everything based on profit

    “Since nearly 60% of Russian exports consists of oil and gas resources to Europe,
    it would be economical suicide to halt exports. These actions by Iran will only put
    more money in Russian pockets, so it’s kind of a win-win situation for Russia.”

    Comes now above poster with a Western name and a Western morality to match, for the West is a never-never land where god most high is maximizing profits and temporary pleasure for High Society most high.

    Problem is, you can’t have both the maximizing of temporary pleasure today, and permanent happiness tomorrow. Actually, you can’t have a mixture of both, for temporary pleasure will win any day of the week and twice on Sundays.

  8. bight-fellow, can you define ‘west’ and ‘western morality’?
    you don’t have to tell anyone, just digest your use of other peoples words. you are a ‘word victim’.
    gooooooood mornin america

  9. Western world — Dominant morality

    As 80% of the Western world professes to be Christian, as such a conviction of conscience would control every aspect of a man’s mind, character and personality, as such brutal imperialism is nothing but a fake morality, comes now the highest law in the land when it comes to Western morality”

    “I tell you the truth,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home
    or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom
    of God will fail to receive many times as much in this age”
    Luke 18:29

    So, excessive wealth is a gift from God. And add to this Romans 13:4 where the governments of the West are “God’s servant to do you good,” and all the gold on earth is yours. For those with the ability to kill the most, they have been blessed by God the most.
