Above: Victims of Western chemical gas attack against Syria
Today, under the Obama regime, the US oligarchy/government and state media are flooding the country and world with their biggest and most crude propaganda campaign in recent memory, rivaling the war of aggression propaganda the Bush regime excreted in favor of massacring Iraq.
Let's briefly go over just two prominent cases:
1. US state media is censoring that the USA is intentionally and knowingly backing neo-Nazis in Ukraine, and that for the first time since and immediately following WW2 (when the US installed Nazis in Greece - see "Rogue State"), actual Nazis are heavily integrated into a European government.
2. US state media is censoring the revelations by Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh that
- Since at least 2006/7, the US started training terrorist armies to overthrow Syria
- Obama tried to lie the USA into a war by blaming Assad for chemical attacks when he knew they may have been carried out by the US side
- The US side did indeed carry out not only the attacks that gassed hundreds of children and others to death, but also chemical attacks before that one
I saw a headline on Fox News channel today that said "Assad Using Chemical Weapons Against Own People Again". (It's a reference to this, which may have simply been an accident, or could have been carried out by either side; it is not known. But based on who has been carrying out chemical attacks so far, it would be the Western-backed jihadists.)
This is a crude and evil cover-up, by a vicious, extremist state media outlet, of Western terrorism, exactly as was put out to cover Saddam Hussein's Al Anfal campaign, wherein he gassed thousands of Kurds with US support. The US said at the time, as it is saying today, that it was not the US side carrying out the attacks, but the other side (which was Iran then, and today is Syria). The US is doing this again today by saying that it is not the US side carrying out chemical attacks, but the other side, when the reality is the opposite.
This is part of a pattern of heinous lying by the USA, which blames its victims for disgusting chemical attacks carried out by the US and its cronies, as part of a larger US terror campaign.
Tony Cartalucci put it best a few days ago in New Eastern Outlook when he said:
What Hersh’s work reveals, however immense, is but one of several grotesque tentacles breaking the surface of very murky waters beneath which lurks a leviathan of state-sponsored terrorism that is responsible for the gassing of thousands, and the deaths of tens of thousands within and along Syria’s borders, and a region now teetering on the edge of a much larger and more costly war. It illustrates how the world is run by “the bad guys” who perpetrate crimes against humanity not only with absolute impunity, but with so-called international agencies [and state media] covering up their tracks.Here is an overview of the USA's Mid East terror network, by Prof. James Petras.
Another crude propaganda lie from WaPo came today, when they said Obama has decided to "resume" delivery of aid to the Egyptian military junta, which carried out the biggest slaughter of peaceful protesters in recent memory, with US support.
This is a lie because, as is fully documented public knowledge, the USA never ceased aiding the junta, and in fact has given them 1.5 billion dollars in weapons and cash. The USA simply withheld, until now, some attack helicopters. But now those are going, too, to help increase what Amnesty International has called "unprecedented repression" in Egypt. A couple of weeks ago, the junta sentenced thousands of political prisoners to death. So that's why they need US attack helicopters - to help maintain the USA's terror and gulag empire in the Mid East.
What WaPo is doing by lying that the US cut its aid to the junta is trying to make the US government look better than it is, by covering up its international/domestic criminal atrocities. If you know anything, you know that supporting such a junta is disgusting, so WaPo, state/oligarchic media outlet that it is, lied and covered that up.
