The European powers and CIA torture

Innumerable redactions in the 525-page US Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of its report into torture by the CIA cannot conceal the complicity of the major European powers in the horrific crimes perpetrated by US imperialism.

How the CIA Launched the «Financial Pearl Harbor» Attacks on Russia and Venezuela

Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan's long familiarity with Saudi Arabia, owing to the time he spent there as the CIA station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and his knowledge of Saudi oil operations, has paid off. Petroleum industry insiders claim that Brennan's agents inside Saudi Aramco convinced the firm's management and the Saudi Oil Ministry to begin fracking operations in order to stimulate production in Saudi Arabia's oldest oil fields. The Saudis, who are not known for their hands-on knowledge of their nation’s own oil industry, agreed to what became an oil pricing catastrophe which would not only affect Saudi Arabia but oil producing nations around the world from Russia and Venezuela to Nigeria and Indonesia...

The Role of 9/11 in Justifying Torture and War: The Criminalization of the US State Apparatus. Senate Report on CIA Torture is a Whitewash

The words “possible criminal actions” by CIA employees are used in the report. The terms unethical and immoral are mentioned. The criminality of those who ordered these actions at the highest levels of government, however, is not acknowledged. The actions directed against alleged jihadists are categorized as ineffective in the process of revealing intelligence. This in itself is a red herring. The objective of torture was not to reveal  intelligence. What of course is not acknowledged is that the alleged  terrorists who were tortured were framed by the CIA.

U.S. Senate Torture Report Exposes Eastern European Torture Lackeys of Washington

The recently-released U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee report on the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation [torture] Program reveals that three NATO nations in Eastern Europe hosted CIA detention and interrogation centers, also known as «black sites.» The three countries identified as hosting DETENTION SITES BLUE, BLACK, and VIOLET are Poland, Romania, and Lithuania, respectively. A fourth «black site», DETENTION SITE GREEN, was located in Thailand. Details of the brutal torture tactics employed by the CIA at the Eastern European sites were revealed after successive governments in Poland, Romania, and Lithuania obfuscated about the presence of the facilities in their respective countries and their actual use...

CIA Torture Report Creates Few Ripples Across the Pond

The Senate's revelations don't pose much risk of a rupture in transatlantic ties. Europe wasn’t exactly silent. But considering the scale of the abuses that the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee revealed on Tuesday in its report on CIA torture, one might have expected a bit more outrage from the leaders of the Old World.

The Flowers of American Democracy

There is a real variety of democracy being cultivated in the world, from the democracy growing wild in Somalia to the hothouse democracy in Sweden. But the most exotic democracy is being cultivated in the United States of America, where local breeders have learned to interbreed flowers of the law with weeds of violence... A US Senate task force has spent several years working on a report on CIA torture... The authorities decided to publish just 500 of the report’s 6000 pages so as not to shock the American public. However, even these 500 pages have caused human rights defenders to cry out: «Gentlemen, what are you doing? What is the CIA doing with Gestapo-like torture chambers?»...

The U.S. Congressional Declaration of War against Russia

The sixteen-page anti-Russian House Resolution 758, which was recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives in an overwhelming vote, is a recipe for active U.S. military and intelligence operations against Russia. Former U.S. Representative and Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, the former congressman wrote that the House resolution mirrored the neoconservative-formulated 1998 Iraq Liberation Act, which was ultimately used by the George W. Bush administration to launch the U.S. attack against Saddam Hussein’s government. Out of 435 members of the House, only 10 voted against what amounted to virtual authorization for offensive operations against the Russian Federation...

The Senate Committee’s Report on the C.I.A.’s Use of Torture

The 525-page executive summary of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s long-anticipated report on the CIA’s use of torture following the September 11, 2001, attacks was released today after years of negotiations. The report looks at 20 cases of high-level detainees who were kept at CIA “black sites,” or secret prisons, during George W. Bush’s presidency. On the Senate floor, introducing the report, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said 7% of the released report was redacted. She also said the program never produced information in a "ticking time bomb" situation and that the program actually produced several false leads.

US Intelligence Agencies and the Argentine Season of Provocations

There is less than a year to go before the presidential elections in Argentina, scheduled to take place on 25 October. Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has twice won the battle for the highest government post, in 2007 and 2011, and so is unable to re-run for the presidency. The question of her successor is being discussed increasingly frequently in Argentina... According to political analysts, the attacks currently being launched against the Argentine president are part of an elaborate plan to ensure the rise to power of political forces loyal to the US and a radical change of policy... The staff at the US embassy in Argentina by way of the State Department, the Pentagon and the intelligence agencies is already full of professionals in terms of assessing Argentina’s status as «pre-crisis»...

Iran: Coming out in the Open to Join First Line of Battle against Islamic State

...Iran realizes that Iraq turns into a springboard for launching an Islamic State aggression against Iran so it makes no secret of its involvement there anymore. The supreme leader of Iran Ali Khamenei says the activities of the US and its allies lead to split among Muslims instead of eradicating terrorism. Tehran believes that the only way to counter the threat is to make Iraqi Shiites join the fight against terrorists. The unparalleled in scale pilgrimage of Iraqi and Iranian believers to the Shia holy city of Kerbela is a telling example of Shiites’ unity...
