Operation Iraqi Takeover Hits a Dead End (For Now)

Friday, June 13th, 2008

Note: This article appears in full on our new site, under Reggie’s Thoughts.

It’s not on the network news programs, because, in fact – it’s kind of secret.  Even the
print media, where they’ve covered a bit of this story, don’t know very much about it.  Whatever it is, U.S. officials refuse comment on the details.  Even members of Congress are out of the loop, but it really does sound super!

It’s got one of those feel good Bushco names, - you know – like the Patriot Act, No Child Left Behind, Clear Skies, and – of course, Operation Iraqi Freedom.  All these clever captions successfully sold Americans some really toxic legislation, and anesthetized their free fall into dictatorship and economic collapse.

So what’s to worry about a US-Iraq Security Pact with our good buddies in Iraq?

Heck, Americans want security and surely Iraqis want security, - and don’t we all just want to get along? It does sound eerily comforting after so many years of killing and maiming, so maybe our compassionate leader and his cohorts are really working to provide us with peace and prosperity after all.  So why all the behind-closed-doors stuff?  And why, after months of bargaining has it come to a no-deal dead end?

Lets’ take a look at what we do know… with a one important caveat.  George W. Bush and his neocon handlers will make sure that the American public believes that Iran is behind this failure, while Bomb, Bomb Iran is played as background music to their claim. Don’t buy it.  Iran is surely frightened that this pact might succeed, and for very good reasons is pressuring Prime Minister Nouri Al- Maliki to develop a backbone and reject it.

But Iran is NOT behind what’s going on,

Bear in mind that ‘negotiations’ between the US and Iraq that began last November.  The story remained pretty much under the radar until earlier this month when a British paper leaked details of the ‘secret’ agreement between the US and Iraq.  Just as suddenly, Iraqi legislators began to wail loudly about being railroaded into an agreement they did not want and could not accept.  Here’s a recap of what went on:

TV News: Pimping for the Pentagon!

Sunday, April 20th, 2008

Note: This article is posted in its entirety at our newly formatted site.

Is it a still a conspiracy theory when the entire plot is exposed on the front page of the Sunday NY Times?  Today’s story blows the lid off the myth that television is an any way fair and balanced, in any way trustworthy, and in any way real news.

Most Americans will never see the NY Times story because the TV news networks will not expose their own lies on their own news programs. Just imagine CNN, FOX News or NBC, ABC or CBS featuring this headline story:

Behind Military Analysts, the Pentagon’s Hidden Hand

Courting Officers Tied to Military Contractors

Records and interviews show how the Bush administration has used its control over access and information in an effort to transform the analysts into a kind of media Trojan horse — an instrument intended to shape terrorism coverage from inside the major TV and radio networks.

The report exposes the complicity of the TV news networks in featuring military ‘analysts’ selected by the Pentagon to promote Bush’s invasion and occupation of Iraq

The TV networks will never draw public attention to their complicity in supporting the Bush/PNAC plans for war, the illegal invasion of Iraq, and the continued occupation of a sovereign nation that never posed a threat to the people of the United Sates. No way.  They cannot acknowledge their role in intentionally duping the public into believing the lies prepared and disseminated directly from the Pentagon and the White House.
Think about it: how do you get a news story to the public about the crimes of those who report the stories in the first place?  It ain’t gonna happen.

Our Forgotten Shame in the Green Zone

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

Note: This article can be read in full at our reformatted site under Reggie’s Commentary.

I’ll admit it, I did not remember either.  Even though we reported the story last year, so much has happened in Iraq that somehow I, too, had forgotten. The story, like so many others, had been swept under the proverbial rug by the corporate media, and within a day or so the world forgot about the Filipino workers in Iraq.

But a few days ago, I received a personal email from an officer serving in Iraq and housed in the Green Zone, and the story came back to me, full blast.  Just a few words in the message reminded me of the forgotten horror that must be added to the countless crimes this administration is committing in Iraq.

This time around, I don’t want the story to become lost in the endless melee of death and destruction that defines this useless war.  I just want to put it out into the public consciousness once again, so we don’t simply forget what is going on.  This time around, it has to get some real attention.

The original story involved the First Kuwaiti General Trading and Contracting Company, the firm that was awarded a nearly $600 million contract to construct the ridiculously ostentatious US Embassy compound in the Green Zone. It also involved the recruitment of thousand of foreign laborers to work on this behemoth that was to be the largest diplomatic mission in the world.

It also focused on Filipinos who were lured by offers of good jobs in Kuwait, and then transported to Iraq against their will to work in Iraq.  I will not detail the entire story here because it is available at sites such as the Migrants News Monitor.  I will, however, reprint the statements of two former American civilian contractors of a Kuwaiti company who testified before the House Committee on oversight and government reform on allegations of waste, fraud and abuse in the construction project.

According to the testimony of John Owen, “Conditions there were deplorable, beyond what even a working man should tolerate.  Foreign workers were packed in trailers tight. There was insufficient equipment and basic needs – stuff like shoes and gloves. If a construction worker needed a new pair of shoes, he was told, ‘No, do with what you have’ by First Kuwaiti managers. The contract for these workers said they had to work 12 hours a day 7 days a week, with some time off on Friday for prayers.”

At the same hearing, Rory J. Malberry testified that he was asked to escort 51 Filipino nationals to the Kuwaiti airport and make sure they got on the same flight that he was taking to Baghdad. “Many of these Filipinos did not speak any English,” he told US congressmen. “When we got to the Kuwait airport, I noticed that all of our tickets said we were going to Dubai. I asked why? The Kuwaiti manager told me that because Filipino passports do not allow Filipinos to fly to Iraq, they must be marked as going to Dubai.”

And boy, did that ever make the front pages and the network news!  Sure, it did

Of course, the rest is history because the workers are still there.and predictably, nothing came of the testimony, and nothing was ever done to investigate the fate of the Filipinos or any other foreign workers who serve at the behest of wealthy contractors in Iraq.  And, just as predictably, the story was forgotten and the abuse and deception disappeared into the fog of war.

Until just a few days ago…

What the Hell is an ‘Unpopular’ War?

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

Note: This article can be read in full at our newly formatted site.

 ‘Unpopular’ -  un’pop•u•lar -  Lacking general approval or acceptance.

Aw, gee..  The American people really don’t approve of the war. They’ve totally forgotten about the death and destruction in Afghanistan, but they just can’t find it in their hearts to give the war in Iraq a thumbs up.  What a shame.

It’s so comforting to know that we’re in the midst of what the pundits now call an ‘unpopular war.’  I suppose it’s something like an unpopular brand of toothpaste, - not really terrible, but somewhat unappealing and not quite what the public wants.  “It’s not the war, really,” we hear. “It’s the way it was fought.”  It’s not the toothpaste either, I imagine, but something about the after taste.

Is it conceivable that that this illegal, immoral war, built on a mountain of lies and deceptions is merely unpopular?  Is it possible that the death, the bloodshed, and the hundreds of billions of wasted dollars simply lack the general approval of most Americans?

One has to wonder what would happen in a ‘popular war.’

Polls show that most Americans want this long, costly war to be over.  But they also want to win.  They don’t really know what they would win, and from whom they would win anything.  They don’t really know the bad guys from the good ones, but they seem tired of something.  They want the troops home, but they fear being attacked in the night by someone out to get them.

And yet, most Americans are not angry or outraged or horrified by what has happened to this country, to Iraq, to our soldiers, and to the Iraqi people. They have set aside the images of Abu Ghraib, and the rendition of detainees for torture in other countries.  They are not indignant at the lies they were told, nor are they screaming for impeachment of those who told the lies.  They want bygones to be bygones.

They just find the war ‘unpopular’ and inconvenient and unacceptable in some sense….

Celebrating the Anniversary, Mr. Bush?

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

The following editorial can be read in full at our newly formatted site. Click here.

The war against Iraq began at 5:30 AM Baghdad time (9:30 PM EST, March 19), when the U.S. launched Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Five years, George. Five ugly, deadly, bloody years. This is quite an anniversary. If you wait a day or two, you’ll be able to celebrate the 4,000th US military death as well.
Break out the champagne.

It’s been a fairly quiet five years, George. No photos of the dead or dying. No flag-draped coffins, no talk of the legless, blinded or horribly burned. Not a murmur about hundreds of thousands of dead and terribly injured Iraqis. No concern about the millions who had to flee the country of their fathers… no fanfare about daisy cutters or depleted uranium. Celebrate….we’re making progress.

Great news management, George, -you’d hardly know such carnage was involved. . Good for you.

You’ve waged such a clean, carefree war, George, if just a tad costly. That $12 billion a month you’re spending on this foray really is hardly worth a mention, considering what you’ve done to the dollar. But, a cash cow is a cash cow. Let’s drink to that.

And let’s hear it for the never-ending, euphoric ‘progress,’ in your lovely war, George. Let’s not quibble about the lack of water and electricity for the Iraqis, or the devastating shortages of doctors and medical supplies. And, luckily, a blown up bus or marketplace here or there is hardly newsworthy. Not a word in the establishment media about the daily killings or kidnappings you’ve set in motion all these years.

Hey, the networks deserve a hand here. Almost three quarters of Americans believe that you’ve caused the deaths of only three thousand American troops. Hard to believe, but they’ve inadvertently written off the lives of a thousand young soldiers and marines. Hell, ignorance is bliss. Party on.

MASH’s Frank Burns Said it All

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

TV Show Mash, Season 3, Episode 6: While trying to describe how the Korean War was responsible for bringing Margaret “Hot Lips” Houlihan and him together, Frank Burns uttered the ultimate metaphor for war: “Never have so many suffered so much so so few could be so happy!” So who are those few these days? Think about it! Jesse Richard – Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

PERSONAL NOTE: As I have written about earlier, I have not published my newsletter on a daily basis recently due to personal reasons, explained in a previous newsletter. However I intended to resume daily publication by now however a little obstacle entered the scene: neck spasms. I am currently suffering from torticollis, which I can pretty safely say has been the most painful prolonged experience in my life. That includes a 10 month bout of sciatica caused by a broken disk in my spine. The pain is similar to having sciatica all up and down your neck.

Anyway, thanks to a variety of health care professionals, from my Doctor, to my new chiropractor/acupuncturist, to my new masseuse, to my friend who is a chiropractor and acupressure professional, to the emergency room crew (where I found myself yesterday while I was dealing with crippling pain), I seem to have found some relief. I have tried to keep up with updates to the news page but as I feel better I will publish more daily newsletters. Please accept my apologies for the drop off in commentaries and daily mailings. As you can see now…I had a pretty good reason for slacking off:-)

By the way…I did notice something funny at the hospital yesterday…they were building a brand new wing of the emergency room dedicated solely to people who go hunting with Dick Cheney;-)

Thank you for understanding,
Jesse

Jesse’s Law: You Start a War, You Lead the Way

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

You want peace? You want corporate war profiteer CEO’s and members of their families to stop lying us into wars? Here is the answer: You make it a law that any politician who votes or orders troops into combat outside our borders must pick up a weapon and lead the battle from the deepest penetration point on the battlefield.

Come on Cheney…maybe you can shoot something other than helpless captive farm birds…and the faces of your so called friends! Maybe we’ll see how IED proof your SUV is!

I introduce this law. Do I hear a second? Think about it!

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE! The Final Holdout: 9/11

Sunday, July 15th, 2007

By Reggie, Contributing Editor, TvNewsLIES.org

NOTE: Please link to our new site for updated 9/11 news-at-a-glance!

Not to worry, this is not about truth seekers or conspiracy theories. It is not about the long list of anomalies and discrepancies in the official story of 9/11. It is not even about the undeniable fact that the events of 9/11 gave George Bush and his handlers the keys to the neocon kingdom of empire. It really is not.

What it is about is the strangest phenomenon I can recall in my entire adult life. It is about what I perceive to be an extraordinary lapse in the logic of millions of otherwise sensible Americans. And it is about something I cannot wrap my mind around, no matter how I try. Maybe someone out there can help me understand what is going on.

In preface, let me also say that this is not about being uninformed. Granted, the corporate media have suppressed any discussion, debate or investigative reporting about the attacks on the United States that purportedly changed everything. That reality aside, even the most fawn-like pundits on the airwaves understand that the ship of state is sinking, and that it is time to challenge the lies of this administration. But, it seems that lie after lie has become fair game for disclosure, or at least for some discussion at this point. As a result, each day, the American people in larger and larger numbers understand that they have been taken for a terrible and costly ride by the lies they were told by this President and his cohorts.

That is, every lie but one.

Finally, nearly seven years after a stolen election that was itself based on lies, greater numbers of Americans are no longer blindly accepting the talking points emanating from the White House as the Gospel truth. In more and more media outlets the Bush lies are openly being identified as such, - rather than by every other euphemism meant to soften the ugliness of a government lying to its people. If people are not totally convinced, at least they hear debates and discussions and competing viewpoints. If nothing else, they are beginning to have doubts about the daily mantras that had them mesmerized for so long.

So, take a look at just the short list of these lies, so as better to understand my dilemma about the lone holdout: 9/11. Bear with me:

At this point in time, many, if not most Americans know that the men and women in the Bush White House clearly and deliberately LIED to them, both by omission and commission about:

- The Bush connection to the bin Laden family.

- Escorting dozens of members of the bin Laden family out of US after 9/11

- The Patriot Act having been written decades before 9/11

- The call for a new Pearl Harbor by the neocons who orchestrated the wars

- A totally invalid and false connection between Iraq and the phony War on Terror

- Regular, politically timed terror alerts

- Toxic air quality at Ground Zero after 9/11

- The junk science of Global Warming and its effects around the globe

- WH orders to suppress and politicize reports on by the Surgeon General

- Plans for wars with Iraq and Afghanistan that were made before 9/11

- Saddam Hussein’s possession of WMD

- Saddam Hussein’s connection to Al Qaeda

- Saddam Hussein’s involvement in 9/11

- Saddam Hussein’s threat to the US or his neighbors

- Having NO plans for an extended occupation of Iraq or for keeping the peace

- Inadequate armor and supplies for our men and women in uniform

- Supposed progress in Iraq, time after time

- Fudged numbers of civilian deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq

- The staged toppling of Saddam’s statue

- The staged rescue of Jessica Lynch

- The lies about Pat Tillman’s death by friendly fire

- Illegal warrantless spying on US citizens

- Torture at Abu Ghraib and other prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan

- Rendition of detainees to other countries for torture

- Outing Valerie Plame as a CIA operative

- White House involvement in the firing of federal prosecutors.

There are so many more lies to list, but I think you get the idea.

Am I wrong to believe that in any other life situation there would be a different reaction to a series of important lies? If you became aware that your plumber or your neighbor or your doctor, or anyone at all in your life lied to you over and over and over about issues that were relevant to your well being, would you ever again believe ANYTHING that person said to you? I really don’t think so.

So, after becoming aware of lie after lie after lie by Bushco, why would anyone in his or her right mind FULLY EMBRACE THE OFFICIAL STORY OF WHAT HAPPENED ON 9/11 WITHOUT A SINGLE QUESTION? Why would anyone in the United Sates of America conclude that the official version of the most important event in recent American history AS TOLD BY PROVEN LIARS is true?

Help me out here, please.

It makes no sense to me at all. Especially, since the most telling part of all this illogic is this: NONE OF THE LIES ON THE ABOVE LIST WOULD HAVE BEEN NECESSARY OR EVEN POSSIBLE WERE IT NOT FOR AN UNSWERVING ACCEPTANCE BY MOST AMERICANS OF THE OFFICIAL VERSION OF 9/11.

Bottom line: I fully understand how difficult it is to believe anything other than the official government story of 9/11. The editor of TvNewsLIES.org has examined the reasons behind the refusal of so many Americans to believe the mounds of evidence that challenge the credibility of the story we have been told. Fine and good.

But, frankly, for the purpose of this article, your personal opinion about who was responsible for 9/11 is irrelevant. It makes no difference at all. What matters is that we examine the strange illogic that stops millions of Americans from questioning a possible lie - one that may matter more than any other. These same Americans now seem willing to openly question many of the lies that are told and repeated ad nauseam by the President and his clan. They are now for more skeptical about their messages and far more hesitant to believe anything George W. Bush tells them in his speeches and press conferences.

But they still will not consider for a moment that the official story of 9/11 as told by this lying government may also be a lie. Ergo, the illogic I cannot understand..

The official story of 9/11 has been told by professional, experienced, and successful liars.
Think about that as you try to explain the need to believe it.

Maybe it will take another 9/11, as we’ve recently been warned may happen very soon, to convince Americans that the most egregious and damaging of all the lies told by the Bush administration must not remain off limits.

We really have few choices left. We have to reach that logical moment when we can openly discuss and debate and examine the available information about 9/11, no matter what the outcome may be. We have to retrieve our collective abilities to examine the events of that day. Perhaps, then, we finally can say about the lies we have heard:

…and then there were none.

Meet the Official White House 9/11 Myth Maker: Philip D. Zelikow

REQUIRED READING FOR BUSH SUPPORTERS! - The George W. Bush Administration:

There are No Political Solutions to Criminal Problems

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Why do Democrats still talk about impeaching George W. Bush and his Machiavellian Svengali Dick Cheney? Are Democrats so blind as not to realize that the system is broken? Do they really expect a criminally complicit Congress to go after some other criminals in White House? Has this “New Century” not served up sufficient evidence to prove that we are not participating in any democracy or representative government and that the entire system is a show? Have people not been paying attention to the most obvious conspiracy to deceive the American people about virtually every single important issue by the establishment media?

If the Scooter Libby technical pardon has not slapped your face with enough reality to wake you up, perhaps this will: nothing will become of this egregious abuse of power by George W. Bush, the Junior Soprano figure head to Dick Cheney’s Tony Soprano godfather! We may see some posturing, press conferences, useless Congressional resolutions and you may get some “action items” assigned to you by Moveon.org or other gatekeepers, but nothing will happen. What we have here are criminals protecting criminals. The system is broken. None of these people represent you and they are simply pretending to do just enough to keep you from taking up arms and killing them once and for all!

Smell the coffee…the Bush administration is in power thanks to an electoral coup; you know it, Congress knows it, the media knows it and everybody is pretending that this is politics as usual. The people who control our world yanked away every last bit of our democracy with installation of the Bush administration. Gore knew it, Kerry knew it, Edwards knew it, and the media knows it and nobody is going to say a damn thing because the people in charge own all of the above.

First they completely eliminated the risk posed by the Internet of real information bypassing the filter of the establishment media and influencing the citizens into voting for their own candidates, by using every dirty trick from deceptive paper ballots to easily manipulated computer voting machines. Then they scared you into letting them go about with the plans for a “New American Century” by conducting the events of 9/11 under the cloak of the military exercises that “coincidently” took place on the morning of 9/11. Then they laughed in your face as George W. Bush played the Emperor with no clothes as he lied to the world when he said that Saddam had weapons and then lied even more when he said that he had to bomb Iraq because Saddam refused to let the inspectors in; all the while the inspectors were already inspecting!!! The media and politicians still use the justification that Saddam could have avoided war if he had let the inspectors in. THEY WERE IN! EVERYONE KNOWS THAT! DOES THE NAME HANS BLIX RING A BELL? THE MEDIA JUST STAND THERE AND LET THE LIE CONTINUE AS THAT IS THEIR JOB! WHEN WILL AMERICA REALIZE THIS? WHEN WILL AMERICA GET UP AND STORM THE ESTABLISHMENT MEDIA OUTLETS AND QUARTER THE PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE?

You are lied to every single day about almost every single issue. The funny thing is that the truth is not hidden. You just don’t believe things unless the people on TV tell you that it is OK. The people who control the media know this! The people who comprise our media and our government are killing with every breath they take and with every word they use to deceive you. Your food, water, air and planet are being murdered forever by these people and you still trust them to keep you safe! OPEN YOUR EYES! THEY ARE KILLING YOU AND MAKING YOU DO NOTHING BUT WORK TO MAKE THEM RICH!

As I write this a man who invented a water powered car THIRTY YEARS AGO is being intentionally ignored by our media. As I write this there is another man at who invented a device that allows a car to run on water and you are not allowed to have this and the media won’t pay attention to this. As I write this another man sits on an accidentally discovered technology that allows salt water to burn as fuel but you won’t be allowed to benefit from this ever! This kind of story won’t be allowed to get past the local station that reports it! And guess what…here is another guy who had a similar discoveryOur government is trying to suppress his planet changing invention! AND YOU DON”T KNOW ABOUT IT!!! WHY NOT? WHO IS KEEPING THIS FROM YOU? As I write this there are mountains of evidence disproving almost every aspect of the official explanation of 9/11 yet you won’t look at it! As I write this there is an illegal private corporation that is not part of our government called the Federal Reserve that has illegally been given the right to create money out of nothing and then charge you and your government interest for borrowing this valueless paper! It was only after this little private bank started charging our government interest that you had to start paying income tax (another illegal reality) just so that you can pay these private bankers and make them the wealthiest people alive! That’s why the revolution took place…to get away from taxation without representation! We started this nation to get away from the Bank of England and here we are back with the same ole same ole! And good old Lou Dobbs won’t tell this to you…but you can check it out for yourself! Then you can tell me why you should not crack a bat over Lou Dobbs’ head for leaving that little tidbit out of his daily fight for the rights of the American worker! IT’S A SHOW! IT’S ALL A SHOW! WAKE UP!

Do you get it yet? There are two worlds out there: reality, and the world that the establishment media create and maintain at the behest of the establishment! It’s not hard to see…you just have to be willing to look! Will today’s news about Libby finally be the kick in the face you people need in order to see what is going on?

Wednesday we will celebrate Independence Day (although most of the clueless Americans think they are celebrating the 4th of July…the holiday is Independence Day!!!) May I be so bold as to say that if we are to survive, a new Independence Day is something that this nation and the world needs disparately! And may I say we start by exposing the media for what they are, the greatest enemy of the American people. By exposing them we render their distractions and delusions useless and then the rest of the criminals will no longer have the cloaking device to protect them from the citizens! Eliminate the cloak of the media and the rest of the criminals shall fall for the people will finally see the truth! Think about it!

DEAD ON THE FOURTH OF JULY!

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

For he’s a Yankee Doodle Dandy, Yankee Doodle Do or Die…. A real live nephew of his Uncle Sam, Dead on the Fourth of July… (with apologies to George M. Cohan)

Fly your flags, all you patriots; it’s another Fourth of July! Fire up the barbecues, ice up the beer and get ready to celebrate another Independence Day in the good old USA. And be sure not to miss the fabulous fireworks that so majestically explode in the night sky to the music of God Bless America. Makes you proud, doesn’t it?

And oh, while you’re at it, don’t give a moment’s thought to the men and women fighting the Bush/PNAC wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. You know, the troops who are out there supposedly fighting for your freedom, or for an end to terror, or for regime change, or for Iraqi liberation, or for the spread of democracy, or for oil, or for George Bush and Dick Cheney or whatever. Don’t let them spoil your fun. After all, it’s a holiday. Enjoy.

Heck, it’s a war, and people die, right? Have another hot dog. So what if nearly 3,600 Americans and nearly 300 ‘coalition’ forces are dead on this Fourth of July? So what if hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghanis are dead on this Fourth of July? So what if tens of thousands of young men and women are no longer whole in mind and body? It’s a holiday. Play ball.

Yeah, it’s been a bloody few months, - the worst, in fact, since that other amazing fireworks show called Shock and Awe. Do you even remember that spectacular night? Never mind, it’s party time in America. Don’t let images of innocent people being blown to bits get in the way of your fun. Don’t get upset about a needless war that has been raging for more than four years with no end in sight. Just go for a swim on this lovely day. And tomorrow is a workday. Damn.

The dead are dead, and there’s nothing you can do to change that, right? There’ll surely be more dead men and women and children tomorrow, and who knows how many thousands will join the dead and dying by the next Fourth of July.

Oh, that’s right… you really don’t approve of the war any more, do you? As a good American, you wouldn’t mind seeing it all end, and you really want the troops to come home one of these days. But, what the hell, there’s nothing much you can do about it, so don’t let it bother you. Relax. Have a beer.

But when the songs and star bursts have ended, and when the food is all gone and your back home, safe and sound, stop and think. Think for just a moment of those who are dead on this Fourth of July because of the greed and insanity of those who lied this country into an illegal and immoral war. When the holiday has ended, think for just a moment of those who will be dead in time for the next Independence Day.

And then sit back and wonder whether there was anything at all to celebrate.
