[Beating Dead Horses]
It's a curious thing that, over the past 10 - 12 days, the news from Iraq refers to the combatants there as "al-Qaida" fighters. When did that happen?

Until a few days ago, the combatants in Iraq were "insurgents" or they were referred to as "Sunni" or "Shia" fighters in the Iraq Civil War. Suddenly, without evidence, without proof, without any semblance of fact, the US military command is referring to these combatants as "al-Qaida".

Welcome to the latest in Iraq propaganda.

That the Bush administration, and specifically its military commanders, decided to begin using the term "Al Qaeda" to designate "anyone and everyeone we fight against or kill in Iraq" is obvious. All of a sudden, every time one of the top military commanders describes our latest operations or quantifies how many we killed, the enemy is referred to, almost exclusively now, as "Al Qaeda."

But what is even more notable is that the establishment press has followed right along, just as enthusiastically. I don't think the New York Times has published a story about Iraq in the last two weeks without stating that we are killing "Al Qaeda fighters," capturing "Al Qaeda leaders," and every new operation is against "Al Qaeda."

The Times -- typically in the form of the gullible and always-government-trusting "reporting" of Michael Gordon, though not only -- makes this claim over and over, as prominently as possible, often without the slightest questioning, qualification, or doubt. If your only news about Iraq came from The New York Times, you would think that the war in Iraq is now indistinguishable from the initial stage of the war in Afghanistan -- that we are there fighting against the people who hijacked those planes and flew them into our buildings: "Al Qaeda."

What is so amazing about this new rhetorical development -- not only from our military, but also from our "journalists" -- is that, for years, it was too shameless and false even for the Bush administration to use. Even at the height of their propaganda offensives about the war, the furthest Bush officials were willing to go was to use the generic term "terrorists" for everyone we are fighting in Iraq, as in: "we cannot surrender to the terrorists by withdrawing" and "we must stay on the offensive against terrorists."

But after his 2004 re-election was secure, even the President acknowledged that "Al Qaeda" was the smallest component of the "enemies" we are fighting in Iraq:

A clear strategy begins with a clear understanding of the enemy we face. The enemy in Iraq is a combination of rejectionists, Saddamists and terrorists. The rejectionists are by far the largest group. These are ordinary Iraqis, mostly Sunni Arabs, who miss the privileged status they had under the regime of Saddam Hussein -- and they reject an Iraq in which they are no longer the dominant group. . . .

The second group that makes up the enemy in Iraq is smaller, but more determined. It contains former regime loyalists who held positions of power under Saddam Hussein -- people who still harbor dreams of returning to power. These hard-core Saddamists are trying to foment anti-democratic sentiment amongst the larger Sunni community. . . .

The third group is the smallest, but the most lethal: the terrorists affiliated with or inspired by al Qaeda.

And note that even for the "smallest" group among those we are fighting in Iraq, the president described them not as "Al Qaeda," but as those "affiliated with or inspired by al Qaeda." Claiming that our enemy in Iraq was comprised primarily or largely of "Al Qaeda" was too patently false even for the President to invoke in defense of his war.

But now, support for the war is at an all-time low and war supporters are truly desperate to find a way to stay in Iraq. So the administration has thrown any remnants of rhetorical caution to the wind, overtly calling everyone we are fighting "Al Qaeda."

Hi, it is apparent you are growing increasingly ignorant of the conflict and how it is going. Why do we stop calling them "insurgents"?

The answer is pretty simple: The Sunni Insurgent groups that we referred to as insurgents have stopped fighting the United States, those that haven't, are now members of the Islamic State of Iraq.

The two sides have now polarized - you're either with the Anbar Salvation Council, the 1920 Revolutionary Brigade, the Islamic Army, or the Ba'ath Party who are now working with the United States, or you are working with the al-Qaeda formed Islamic State of Iraq.

I don't expect you to actually believe any of this, because you've made up your mind, but a quick fact check may explain things. Toodles.

Al Qaida grows
Posted by Dr uncountable on 2007-07-08 22:51:15
So... that means that Al Qaida is growing at an enormous rate, won't this approach backfire for Bush?

Iraq propaganda hardly...
Sunnis in anabar are fighting against AL QAiDA. Perhaps think the author should get his facts straight before writing another article.

Good luck

Since when are we ever told the truth? Those that study history, or just know it, are familiar with governments using events such as these (9/11 and the war in Iraq) as means to "cover up" what is really going on. If you believe what our administration is telling us, then you are what is known as a LEMMING.

attacker of fbi/cia assassins
Posted by geral on 2007-08-10 12:54:54
The USA continues to be at risk of imminent terrorist attack in part because the fbi and the cia obsessively continue their criminal, covert, and inhumane assaults on people worldwide.

From brownsville, Texas
August 7, 2007
As I have documented on my website at
the fbi and the cia conducted criminal operations against my person from about 1998 to the present time, 24/7, worldwide, without cessation, without the slightest hindrance from Congress, the Courts, or the legal system. See my letter dated
August 9, 1999, at:
Also note that in March of 2001, I reported that, due to fbi and cia corruption and incompetence, the United States faces a dangerous crisis with respect to intelligence failures.See
In 1999, I reported fbi and cia crimes to the United States Attorney in Honolulu, Hawaii.See :
Then, I filed a lawsuit in the United States Court in the year 2000.See:
I pursued all legal channels to report gross incompetence and corruption in the fbi and the cia, as reflected in the appeal dated July 9, 2001, as seen at:
Then, in the same month I filed the Writ to the U.S. Supreme Court, again detailing the gross abuse of power and criminal operations committed against my person by the fbi and the cia. See the Writ at:
and see the implications of the denial of the Writ at:
The U.S. Supreme Court had my Writ under consideration at the time of the 911 attack on the United States; the high court subsequently denied the Writ on 10-1-01. See
Throughout the entire period of time during which the 911 terrorists planned and executed the attack on the United States, the fbi and the cia were running covert criminal operations globally, 24/7, in efforts to silence me from reporting their crimes. Not a single government official, not a single judge, and not a single representative of Congress commented on the fbi and the cia criminal operations as one of the causes for the attack on the country.
Further, in about 1998-1999, the FAA discovered through its own intelligence operations that Bin Ladin and al Qaeda posed a hijacking threat to the United States; the FAA also stated that the FAA was aware that a part of the plot on 911 included the "...possibility that the terrorist group might try to hijack a commercial jet and slam it into a U.S. landmark." See 911 Commission Report, page 632, published by Barnes and Noble, 2006.[ Members: Kean, Hamilton, Ben-Veniste, Kerry, Fielding, Lehman, Gorelick, Roemer, Gorton, and Thompson].See also:

The conclusions to be drawn from the sorry record of inaction by the government (vis a vis 911) are in part that the officials are afraid (for a number of reasons)to directly hold the fbi and the cia responsible for their criminality and incompetence that led to 911; that the secret and criminal fbi and cia attacks on citizens of the USA are not subject to any government oversight, even when the national security is threatened by intelligence failures, especially as such failures are attributable in part to fbi and cia obsessions to silence (or force into suicide) certain whistle blowers (and others) who seek to stop these hideous agencies from a continuation of their worldwide commission of crimes against Humanity, as well as other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Finally, nothing has changed in the fbi and the cia concerning their obsessive continuation of criminal offenses which I have outlined over the past decade. See:
and see:

The failure of our leaders to address these issues signals to the world that the United States of America is a nation in decline and that the civilization that permits the atrocities advanced by such low minded and homicidal groups is failed.
Several so-called Indy Media groups delete the above article; for example, Ireland Indymedia trashed the report, even though it generated genuine interest there.The link to the discarded report:
Then, Indymedia Pittsburg trashes it saying that it is:are "garbage" (have no real readable content). The link:
Sosbee's comments- The fools and cowards of some Indymedial groups who hide behind the brave title "Independent Media" are now recorded as minions of the fbi's and the cia's global killing and torture spree; these same Indymedia hoodlums are as responsible for the ongoing global bloodbath (brought about in the main by the fbi and the cia) as are their evil sisters in the corrupt mainstream media.


Aljazeera- I wish you God's speed in your new
efforts to reach the world's people by competing
head-on with the corrupt and evil western media.
I, like you , am targeted for destruction; I, like
you (or some of your representatives) have been
maligned, attacked and virtually imprisoned by the
fbi/cia high tech thugs and low minded
operatives (of the united states of america;i.e.: USA );
I, like you try to get my message out for all who
are eager to discover the truth: that the world
is in the grips of an inhumane assault by the USA,
and that failure of our efforts portends the end
of freedom for all of Mankind, for all times.
Good Luck. May God's Grace Be With You. I am your
unlikely compatriot in the information war against
EVIL INCARNATE , as most clearly represented in
the individuals representing the government of
united states of america, its war machine, its
intelligence agencies and its media.

Turkey- you have in our generation a great opportunity to resist the overtures of the enemy of mankind-the united states of america-and at the same time to help save all of Mankind from permanent enslavement by the lunatics and power mongers of the uSA. Great Responsibility rests on your shoulders.Do not ignore it. Respectfully.

Pakistan- the enemy of Mankind (united states of america) has already discounted the enslavement of your people.

To the People of Iran: I send my sincere affection and my prayer that you continue to prosper and that you also succeed in resisting the corruptive influences of the enemy of Mankind: the uSA.
------------------------------ --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To the People of North Korea: I send my sincere affection and my prayer that North and South Korea may soon unify without the corruptive influence of the enemy of Mankind: the uSA.
To the People of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt:
Your kINGS have sold you out to the dual axis of evil : Israel and uSA; you are now pawns in the global game dictated by the Jewish state and its facilitator, the united states of america. If you don't believe me , ask your neighbors in Iraq, Lebanon, and others; then ask your kINGS how best to deal with Israel's nuclear submarines standing by to strike.

For several years I have had the honor and the accompanying pain to report fbi and cia crimes and misdemeanors against my person. The significance of my reports are not simply to assist myself in staying alive, but to provide an historical document which in time may serve others similarly imprisoned (though not always behind bars) by the high tech gadgetry (and low minded thugs) of these two hideous agencies.
Therefore, the first purpose for this article is to express my gratitude for all who have seen and verified my reports and for all who see the global importance to humanity of the lessons I and others attempt to present. Thank you eternally.
The other purpose herein is to offer whatever services I may to any other *person who is being tortured, imprisoned, or otherwise hounded by the world�s most misguided and pathological miscreants: the agents, operatives, thugs, assassins, executioners, handlers of the fbi and the cia and their sympathizers and allies globally. Tell me who you are, please; give me the dates, times and methods associated with your suffering at the hands of the fbi/cia and their global affiliates (including the mindless police in every jurisdiction), so that I can better understand how to attack (in an intellectual sense) these bestial humans in a way that will help educate the world regarding their purposes and their tactics. Provide the details and the names of your torturers. If you cannot communicate, then please relay the data to someone else for this study. While I may not be of direct aid to my fellow prisoners, I can add the material into the fold of my own updates and thereby give others the benefit of your travails; history needs you to vocalize your agony as I have for the benefit of future generations.
Someday the thugs I describe will be out of power; they will be replaced with a diametrically opposite mentality and morality as represented by you and I. The people who will replace the hate mongers and torturers are those of us who seek humane treatment, with no exceptions, now and always, for the most glorious and noble of this earth�s occupants, the individual human being. The misanthropes whose defective and collective vision is jaded by their trade mark images of blood, chains, torture cells, and mass graves, etc., will run for cover and the new civilization will be born from your ideas and your reports, and from mine. The program to remove the warlords and the vicious exploiters of mankind from power is underway now; we are at the front edge of the largely invisible effort to make this new awakening, or phenomenon, a reality for all of our Brothers and Sisters in every corner of the world.
Best Wishes.Love.

Where is the USA taking the world?

Rest of the text:
See the site for information on how the fbi/cia silence critics of USA wars on the world;see how the fbi/cia attempt to force into suicide the most viable and credible reporters of USA sponsored high crimes and misdemeanors globally; read the documents which expose the fbi and the cia as satanic and ritual torturers; discover or confirm the emergence of USA sponsored international goon squads who watch in real time and record (for the Senate Intelligence Subcommittee of Congress)as the Targets (of their inhumane assaults) take their own lives.
Don't take my word for it; investigate the phenomena yourselves; neither accept the denials and counter claims of the world's most heinous thugs and miscreants (i.e., the fbi,cia), but delve into the matter with the dedication of a Renaissance explorer and the resolve of a bear on salmon trove.

Excerpts from :
The tactics employed globally by the fbi/cia reflect the homicidal profile of the enforcers and perpetrators of the new, stagnant and completely controlled world. These tactics include, but are not limited to the following :
mass murder (sometimes one at a time)
torture (physical and psychological)
blackmail (of a mortifying type)
stalking and kidnapping and fraudulent stings by law enforcement
burglary, robbery, theft, fraud, extortion
false imprisonment, abuse of civil process and disabling calumny
financial isolation and ruination
human experimentation (of a monstrous type)
programming for suicide (inter alia) of the Targeted individuals
psychological operations and mind control
psychoelectronic bombardment
chemical, biological, and viral assaults on human beings
intrusive, continuous and disturbing surveillance (physical and electronic) twenty four hours a day, seven days a week
-aided by tracking devices implanted in the person and properties of the Target
-with invasions into home, office and car ; and with strategic tamperings therein designed to drive the Target insane
The fbi/cia agents, operatives, thugs, assigns, handlers and supporters are your neighbors, friends, relatives, spouses, representatives, doctors, etc. Geral Sosbee
Until the United States' terrorists and assassins are stopped in their
tracks, the world cannot rest. Human beings are presently tortured,
imprisoned and murdered by the fbi and the cia worldwide for no cause;
this will not stop until the global population demands the surrender of
the homicidal sociopaths who dominate U.S. political and economic
policies. The concept that if the U.S. is let alone (or with its
puppet allies) to be armed with nuclear weaponry in order to allow the
rest of the world to live in peace is total lunacy. The United States
used the nuclear bomb, threatens to use it again, and will in fact use
it again to attack any nation which remotely threatens the U.S.
stranglehold on the world. Indeed according to Karl W B Schwarz (and others),"evidence is still piling up that they have done wrong for the past three presidential administrations in using depleted uranium weapons on Iraq twice, Bosnia and Afghanistan."
Under the best of scenarios (as viewed from the perspective of non
conforming-belligerent nations), however, the world cannot defeat the
U.S. war machine. Any attempt to prepare to do so will be met with
total destruction of the aggressor. Even today the U.S. has another
weapon (other than conventional) which can theoretically wipe out,
instantaneously, any cache or bank of unfriendly technologies which may
pose a threat to the U.S. or its allies: the laser beam fixed in
positon in outer space can accomplish this little task just fine (see
world in a box at
The real issue , I think, is how
to stop all weaponry on earth from being used and at the same time to
afford all human beings alive some hope for peace and stability
everywhere and for all time. The formation of a one world , one people
Humane global government must be studied and proposed. The tyrants of
any given country cannot be entrusted with Human Rights and Individual
Freedom issues ever again. This means that the people of the world, not
their respective governments, must embark on mankind's most ambitious
odyssey: the journey toward permanent peace and harmony on earth and
the uncompromising realization of Human Rights for all. This can be
done; such a goal is not simply a dream. What appears as an
unattainable dream is that the United States or any other government
on earth will someday stop killing and torturing people and allow them
to live in peace , mutual respect and love.
SOSBEE'S PROCLAMATION ( someone must proclaim against uSA madness):
Whereas the present government of the United States (feigning
leadership) openly and without the slightest pretense of respect for
human life and in complete disregard for universally accepted standards
for basic human rights, engages under color of its national flag in
murder, torture, imprisonment and terrorist practices against the
THIS COUNTRY (THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA) and as such deserves not a
respectable place among the family of nations and more significantly
merits nil when the final account of Humanitarian efforts be tabulated
by all that is holy and graceful in the universe.
We the people of the world hereby prevent the fbi, the cia, the
militia, or any other government agency (or person) of the United
States (or any other country) from dictating the terms of our surrender
unto their authority, custom, culture, power now and for all times; in
furtherance of this recognition, the world's population forthwith seeks
to expose such dictatorial intent (and the techniques employed in
support of same) by public investigation which serves on a continuing
basis to protect and to defend the people of the world (now and in the
future) from any form of inhumane governance. EVERY MAN/WOMAN.
As people discover the immoral, cowardly and macabre character of the
agents, operatives, handlers and associates of the fbi/cia (as manifest
globally in the killing/torture techniques used by these sociopathic
assassins to insure compliance to new world order dictates) we may not
reasonably expect a merciful redress from foreign and domestic freedom
fighters forced from desperation to employ against US equally
aggressive and abhorrent stratagems. Geral Sosbee

Nice generalized stereotype of all Americans, Geral.

Maybe, amidst your rabid propaganda-spam, you could do a little research and figure out that most U.S. citizens oppose the current President's actions.

Your conspiracy theories are stale, your "laser beam" claim is contrived and, to anyone who knows anything about laser technology, is something purely out of a James Bond film or sci-fi novel (as well as your "mind control" and "human experimentation" claims).
Your proposal of a one-world government is poorly conceived, as the leader of such a government would inevitably become corrupt due to power (see the former Soviet Union for examples).

In short, remove the tinfoil hat, see a psychologist, and learn to distinguish fantasy from reality.

Condoleeeezzza pleeeeazza

The uSA is now the most serious threat to Humanity ever, due in part to the brutal killing spree that characterizes its global political posture for the past 100 years. The leaders of the uNITED sTATES reflect in their absurd speeches and comments the decadence of the country that seeks to rule the world and dominate the universe: the united states of america.


Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says today that al-Qaida is "the most brutal and bankrupt of movements".*

Sosbee asks, just how brutal and bankrupt are Americans in their invasion, plunder, killing and rape campaigns in the Middle East? Just how brutal would Americans become if , say, the Chinese attacked our land with atomic laser guns and bombs (outdoing our own arsenal) and killed and plundered here as we do 'over there'. Well, Condoleeeezzza, you and little King george will never know (nor could you two imagine the answer to this) because you are not on the front line of any conflict, foreign or domestic, and because you are both Mental Dwarfs as defined at

So, spare us your silly rhetoric which simply tends to further synch your place in history and as an incompetent fool.
*"If tyrannt and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy"
James Madison (1751-1836)
