Just more than a day after the White House released 100 pages of emails relating to September’s terrorist attack in Benghazi, it’s clear that ABC’s bombshell report a week ago was misleading.
CBS’ Major Garrett called out Republicans and ABC in a report Thursday that showed the emails in ABC‘s report clearly try to downplay the CIA’s role in shaping the talking points and place more emphasis on the State Department.
In particular, the GOP-leaked [...]
Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has been deemed credible by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General, several senators (free subscription required), and a coalition of prominent conservative and liberal groups.
The ACLU described Edmonds as:
The most gagged person in the history of the United States of America.
And famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg says that Edmonds possesses information “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers”.
Edmonds translated terror-related communications for the FBI right after 9/11. In that [...]
Israel now risks a loss of credibility over both its “red line” for Iran’s nuclear program and its threat of military action, and its room for unilateral maneuver is shrinking.
“If there was a good window of opportunity to attack, it was six months ago – not necessarily today,” said Giora Eiland, a former Israeli national security adviser. Pressure from Washington, he said, had forced Israel to drop its strike plan.

Deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes defended the president in comments to the press:
“He said that the US government position is still to refer to the country as Burma.
He said it was a “diplomatic courtesy to refer to “Myanmar” in his meeting with Thein Sein.
“The US government position is still Burma but as we have said, different people call this country by different names.””
The White House yesterday denied it edited talking points about the terrorist attack that killed the American ambassador to Libya — contradicting remarks made a day earlier by disgraced ex-CIA chief David Petraeus.
“The only edit that was made by the White House and also by the State Department was to change the word ‘consulate’ to the word ‘diplomatic facility,’ since the facility in Benghazi was not formally a consulate,” Deputy [...]
Hillary Clinton will step down as U.S. Secretary of State within ‘days’ of President Barack Obama’s second inauguration in January, her spokesman said today.
Her long-respected departure is expected by most Democrats to be a prelude for a White House run in 2016, when she will be 69.

Will a False Flag Be the Start of An Iran War?
Ron Paul said recently (at 28:00):
What I fear the most is a false flag – something happening where one of our ships goes down, or there a plane goes down, and of course it HAD to be the Iranians, you know, for sure, for certain.
(Paul previously warned of a “Gulf of Tonkin type incident” in Iran.)
Paul joins numerous other high-level government officials who have [...]
Will Israel Blow Up Something and Falsely Blame It On Iran?
According to U.S. officials, Israel is training and supporting Iranian terrorists who are trying to topple the Iranian government. Those Israeli-funded terrorists have faked documents to falsely indicate that Iran is building a nuclear bomb. 1
Israel has admitted to previous use of false flag attacks to justify war against Middle Eastern nations.
For example, Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including [...]

There has been ongoing speculation on the possibility of an Israeli-U.S. strike on Iran for quite some time. Publicly, the Obama administration has indicated that while military action was not off the table, it was also not the first choice of the administration. President Obama had hoped Israel would delay an attack on Iran until after the presidential election in November, but the Israeli government is [...]
The months of negotiations with the six world powers were happily used by Iran for great strides toward bringing its nuclear weapon program to fruition.
Tehran’s back-channel dialogue with Washington leading up to the negotiations served the same purpose.
Since diplomacy ran aground, war has become inevitable and preparations for cutting short Iran’s rapid progress have accelerated.
Former Israeli Mossad director Ephraim Halevi commented to the New York Times Thursday, Aug. 2, that [...]

The Obama administration has for now abandoned efforts for a diplomatic settlement to the conflict in Syria, and instead it is increasing aid to the rebels and redoubling efforts to rally a coalition of like-minded countries to forcibly bring down the government of President Bashar Assad, U.S. officials say.
Administration officials have been in talks with officials in Turkey and Israel over how [...]

Despite mounting fury from the Syrian rebels, who are seeking assistance for their efforts to overthrow the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, the White House has refused all requests for heavy weapons and intelligence support.
Syrian lobby groups in Washington, who only a few weeks ago were expressing hope that the Obama administration might give a green light to the supply of anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, said they had now been forced [...]

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter, graded Obama’s foreign policy performance “somewhere between B-plus and A-minus,” lauding his achievements with Chinese and Russian relations but criticizing his failure to move forward on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
“It would be higher if he had moved more decisively on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, because he had a chance to do so. But admittedly, he was overwhelmed by domestic problems,” [...]
Ahead of the president’s trip to the Summit of the Americas this weekend, Gallup reports that Latin America is losing faith in President Obama. Specifically, the Gallup shows that only 24 percent of respondents in Latin American countries now believe Obama will strengthen ties between Latin America and the U.S.—in 2009, by contrast, that number was 43 percent.
“Gallup studies suggest that people in many Latin American countries do not believe Obama has [...]
On Tuesday, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, refused to join his fellow Republicans in criticizing President Obama over the “hot mic” comments the president made to the president of Russia at a summit in South Korea.
“When the president is overseas,” Boehner told reporters, “I think it’s appropriate that people not be critical of him or our country.”
But now it’s Wednesday and the president is back in the U.S., and Boehner clearly feels [...]

Senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett apparently has Secret Service protection.
This is highly unusual, and of course, costly. I’ve never really heard of someone who is merely a senior White House aide getting assigned Secret Service agents.
My understanding is that at the senior levels of the Bush White House, at least during the latter days, only the president and his family, the vice president, the chief of staff, the national [...]
