You've got to hand it to Glenn Greenwald; he's got balls!
Throughout the summer Ed Snowden via Greenwald revealed to us the not so surprising news that we were being spied upon by our very own government agencies. That such a mass spying program called Echelon had existed for decades, was known about within the alternative media, and previous whistleblowers on this program had been ignored was, for whatever reason, not discussed. Both the NATO and alternative media were outraged. shocked. SHOCKED! All the NATO and the vast majority of the alternative media accused Obama of personally reading all our emails and texts, and listening into all our phone calls.
But look at what is happening now since the 'revelations': nobody is being prosecuted, and the spying is being deemed legal. In other words we have been normalised to this total surveillance.
But I think the most important result of these revelations was that they put so much pressure on Obama, due to the vastly inflated and personal nature of the allegations, that he finally succumbed to the relentless pressure to say that Assad had crossed Obama's 'red line', thus bringing the prospect of war on Syria that bit closer.
For the naïve, here is some background history to the jack-in-a-box Glenn Greenwald.
Obama is not supposed to be in The White House. In 2012 Bilderberg, Wall Street and Israel (same thing really) all backed Mitt Romney and his pro-war, pro-fascism, pro-Israel policies. They gave Romney ten times as much money as they did to Obama. One of their own, DCI David Petraeus, arranged to Carterise Obama at Benghazi. At a time when Obama was made to look weak and incompetent, a powerful Presidential Romney was supposed to rise up and save the nation. But Romney blew it, and Obama won. There was a series of scandals in which Petraeus resigned, but he has since been given a cushy job at KKR, who are ever present at Bilderberg.
Obama was not supposed to win because of his Nobel Peace Prize. Obama may love it, but to the warmongers who planned and executed 9/11 it is bad news. 9/11 was an inside job. Saudi Arabia supplied the patsies, and on the day Zionist agents were in control of the US military, government and media apparatus to make the military go AWOL and the American people go to sleep. Shortly after 9/11 the former head of NATO in Europe General Wesley Clark was told of a plan for war on seven nations in five years. The seven nations named to Clark were Iraq, Iran, Syria and Lebanon, and Libya, Sudan and Somalia. The first four were named in a Zionist warmongering document written in 1996 called A Clean Break. Iraq and Iran were also named in Rebuilding America’s Defenses which was written by a Zionist cabal called The Project for a New American Century which interlocked with the authors of A Clean Break. On and after 9/11 members of this cabal were in very, very, very influential positions. Although President Bush was not a member of this cabal, he was surrounded by them and their advice/lies.
We invaded Afghanistan for opium, not for bin Laden, who died around Christmas 2001. He had been suffering from Marfan Syndrome. Our ruling establishment has been running the global drug industries for centuries. The Taliban were destroying the opium crops, but within years of NATO invading Afghanistan the opium harvests were up to record levels.
So after the opium was sorted out the Zionist warmongering plan was implemented. First up was Iraq. They said Iraq was involved in 9/11. They said Iraq had WMDs. It was all lies, lies, lies.
In 2006 Israel engineered a war against Hezbollah, but lost.
So by 2007, just over five years after 9/11, the plan for war on seven nations in five years as revealed to General Wesley Clark was moribund.
To get the plan rolling again a Faustian pact was agreed between the USA, Israel and Saudi Arabia that the latter would unleash the nastiest extremist Jihadis onto those nations named to Clark that had not yet been attacked. But so NATO could give these Jihadis some kind of assistance a cover was required. That cover was The Arab Spring, which is not Arab but pure US State Department and CIA.
The first to suffer these Jihadis was Libya. British Special Forces assisted the Jihadis on the ground while NATO bombed a clear and unobstructed path for them all the way into Tripoli, killing tens of thousands of Libyan civilians in the process.
After Libya, next up was Syria. Former French foreign minister Roland Dumas was asked in 2009 by Great Britain to help them smuggle the Jihadis into Syria. The Jihadis have been slaughtering their way through Syria for nearly 3 years, massacring whole villages, cutting the throats of children and blaming it on Assad, the Syrian Arab Army and the Shabiha, using chemical weapons and blaming it on Assad, and a gullible NATO media has been willingly repeating their accusations.
But by late 2012, Assad was still in power, and no overt large scale military campaign, such as against Libya, had occurred. There had been allegations of use of chemical weapons by Assad, and that the Shabiha had slaughtered a whole village at al Houla, but despite massive international pressure Obama, in his wisdom, had refused to take overt action and attack Syria, instead issuing a warning of crossing ‘a red line’. He was supported in this decision by CJCS Dempsey.
So come the US Presidential election in 2012 you can see why the warmongering Bilderberg/Wall Street/Israel crowd wanted Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama out and pro-war pro-Israel Romney in.
Upon Obama returning to The White House, he was immediately embroiled and personally implicated in a series of minor scandals. There were loud calls for his impeachment. At the same time as these scandals there were allegations that Assad had used chemical weapons. And guess who provided the dodgy proof? ISRAEL AND THE UK!
But Obama resisted.
There was some in-your-face diplomacy from leaders such as David Cameron, Recip Erdogan and Benjamin Netanyahu, all trying to persuade Obama to attack Syria.
But still Obama resisted.
And then in June the back of the Syrian rebellion was broken when the important hub of al Qusair was recaptured by the brave and competent Syrian Arab Army.
Within days of this crucial turning point Glenn Greenwald and Ed Snowden, like a jack-in-a-box, appeared on the scene, shouting that Obama was spying on us all, and personally reading all our emails and texts, and personally listening into all our phone calls.
The calls for the impeachment of Obama were raised to a deafening level. The pressure on Obama was too much and he finally relented and decided, months after the event, that Assad had used chemical weapons and had crossed Obama’s ‘red line’, despite the source of the samples and their chain of custody not reaching internationally agreed standards.
But still Obama resisted all out war. Instead Obama announced an increase in supplies of small weapons, which a few weeks later had still not materialised.
So by July the warmongers really were getting desperate. Prince Bandar bin Sultan, suspected handler of the 9/11 patsies, visited Putin in Russia and issued an ultimatum; dump Assad and Saudi Arabia would sign a massive contract to buy Russian weapons and would allow Russia to operate in the Middle East, or he, Bandar, would unleash the Jihadis onto the Sochi Winter Olympics and create hell on earth in Lebanon and Syria. Putin declined.
A few weeks after this meeting the HQ of Hezbollah in Beirut was attacked, because Hezbollah was fighting against Bandar’s Jihadis alongside the Syrian Arab Army.
And then in late August came the horrific allegation that approximately a thousand civilians had been killed by chemical weapons in Ghouta. The NATO media immediately went into overdrive and accused Assad, saying that only Assad had the arsenal large enough for such an attack.
One surprising voice to repeat these allegations was The Guardian, which projects an image of responsibility and professionalism and humanitarianism. I destroyed the credibility of The Guardian a few weeks ago when I provided an analysis of its editorials. It consistently accused Assad of the Ghouta attack, and was pro-war for R2P. It not once addressed the question why Assad would kill a thousand of his own people, or even consider the rebels as suspects despite reports and videos of the rebels possessing and using chemical weapons. It also avoided mentioning disarming Israel of its known chemical, biological and nuclear arsenal. The Guardian had previously pushed green fascism and mass genocide at Copenhagen in 2009, and overtly supported that man so despised by the vast majority of Russia, the jailbird and Rothschild asset Mikhail Khordokovsky.
Yet despite the lies from The Guardian and all the other NATO media, a motion to go to war on Syria was narrowly defeated, thanks to Ed Miliband. This gave Obama the opportunity to duck out of attacking Syria, which Obama wisely took. So the warmongers are pissed off with Obama; no war on Syria, and possible peace with the ultimate target of all their warmongering and lies, Iran.
In response to being denied their wars, the warmongers declared war on Obama by releasing a video attacking Obama as incompetent, citing the possibly sabotaged roll-out of Obamacare and linking that to Obama’s decision not to start war on Syria and Iran. This video was released by The Emergency Committee for Israel, which was founded and run by William Kristol.
Now, which organization did Kristol found that is seriously implicated in all this warmongering? The Project for a New American Century.
The wheels of history go round and round…
But back to Greenwald.
Why did Greenwald go to the obvious NATO media asset, The Guardian?
Have the Greenwald/Snowden/Guardian circus published all the information they have? No. Apparently they have only published 1% of what they have.
Why have they not published everything?
Have they saved ‘the best’? If so, why?
And Greenwald is now teaming up with Jeremy Scahill to form a new media venture funded by the founder of eBay. Scahill has beguiled the alternative media with his film Dirty Wars, yet he launched his own personal but very public dirty war against Mother Agnes Mariam who has provided evidence that what happened at Ghouta was a planned psyop false flag involving children kidnapped from Lattakia a few weeks earlier. Scahill forced Stop The War to dump Mother Agnes Mariam.
I ask : are these the actions of a genuine media and genuine whistleblowers?
I believe not.
So to summarise:
1. before Greenwald and Snowden appeared we had known for years about Echelon, and previous whistleblowers had been ignored.
2. Obama is not supposed to be in The White House. Obama is obstructing the progress of the failing plan for war on seven nations in five years. Massive pressure was put on Obama to attack Syria, but Obama wisely refused. It was only after Greenwald produced Snowden via NATO media asset The Guardian that Obama decided that Assad had crossed Obama’s ‘red line’. But still no war on Syria.
3 Obama’s refusal to attack Syria and Putin’s refusal to dump Assad provoked Prince Bandar bin Sultan to run a false flag at Ghouta in August which nearly provoked WW3. The Guardian played its part in this anti-Assad mad rush to war by immediately blaming Assad, not once considering the rebels as culprits, and dancing with joy at Assad relinquishing his chemical weapons while not addressing Israel’s much larger, more powerful and more horrendous arsenal of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.
4. The Guardian is an obvious NATO media asset; it supported green fascism (and still does) at Copenhagen in 2009, and supported the obvious Rothschild asset and jailbird Mikhail Khordokovsky, the man so despised by the vast majority of Russia.
Yet Greenwald ran to The Guardian!!
So when I read this I laughed at the comedian jack-in-a-box Glenn Greenwald.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald condemned the mainstream media during an address at a German computer conference on Friday and accused his colleagues of failing to challenge erroneous remarks routinely made by government officials around the globe.
