CIA Created ISIS — Video – Assange Drops Bombshell on WikiLeaks Release of 500K US Cables

The founder of the transparency organisation WikiLeaks released a statement (28/11/2016) upon the release of over 500,000 diplomatic cables dating back to 1979, which succinctly reveals how the CIA was essentially responsible for creating the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.

The timing of the release coincided with the sixth anniversary of WikiLeaks “Cablegate” release, which exposed the machinations of the underbelly of the U.S. empire. The latest release, known as the “Carter Cables,” adds 531,525 new diplomatic cables to the WikiLeaks’ already voluminous Public Library of U.S. Diplomacy (PLUSD).

New Hager-Stephenson book reveals tragic and disastrous SAS actions in Afghanistan

Author and investigative journalist Nicky Hager and war correspondent Jon Stephenson have teamed up, in a book just released, to tell the story of a dark and guilty secret of New Zealand’s recent history. The book is about what the New Zealand military – and especially the Special Air Service (SAS) – did in Afghanistan in response to the first New Zealander dying in combat in August 2010.

The tax I pay should be for peace, not war

I have the right not to kill during military conflict. So why am I forced to pay for others to do so on my behalf?

young man I know joined the armed forces to fight in Afghanistan because he wanted to have an experience that money couldn’t buy. He is not an ardent patriot or believer in any particular cause. He just wanted a unique experience in his life; to have done something difficult, something money cannot buy.

Important Update: Taxes for Peace Bill

Conscience

Watch the Taxes for Peace Bill first reading in Parliament

Dear Friends,

Due to the Bill not being high enough on the Parliamentary Agenda, it is almost certain that the Taxes for Peace bill will not be debated on the 24th of March.

We realise this might be disappointing, but this campaign has already had a substantial impact on Parliament. We have:

  • Recruited several newly elected  MPs into the peace movement including Ruth Cadbury MP, Liz Saville-Roberts MP and Michelle Thomson MP.

  • Raised the issue in Parliament so that every MP understands why people need conscientious objection to military taxation.

  • Secured national coverage for the campaign including coverage in the Guardian

  • Secured the endorsement of Oscar award winning actor Sir Mark Rylance.

But this is not the time to be disappointed. This is the time for action. We want to shout our support for a foreign policy that rejects violence and focuses on development and diplomacy as peaceful means of conflict resolution.

A total of 77 survivors were pulled out of the water and taken to a detention center in nearby Hodeida, according to IOM’s Yemen chief of mission Laurent De Boeck.

De Boeck said the agency believes everyone on board were refugees, though it was not immediately clear where they came from in Somalia.

Dennis Kucinich: Why are we at war in Syria?

The United States government is now at war in Syria, with nearly 1,000 combat-ready U.S. troops providing artillery and air support in the north. We have put our troops in an impossible and perilous position, with enemies on all sides.

The war in Syria is not a fight for democracy. The U.S. is fighting alongside and supporting the cause of 80,000 jihadist from 90 different countries. Nearly a half-million Syrians have died in the war fuelled by this sinister worldwide participation.

Former Mossad chief Halevy admits Israel supported ISIS in Syria to weaken Russia

In an interview with the Qatar-based news network Al Jazeera, Efraim Halevy, the former head of Mossad confirmed what many in the Middle East and around the world already surmised: that Israel provided “tactical” assistance to Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian affiliate of Al Qaeda and ISIS, throughout the Syrian civil war.

The fact that Halevy chose the Qatari government-funded Al Jazeera to make his revelation is even more noteworthy considering the fact that Qatar is also a major financial supporter of Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS in Syria.
