It’s all in the details.

Here is a news story from AP that is about NATO troops killing someone we let go back over to Afghanistan. The idea you are supposed to take away from all that is ‘see we need Gitmo cause otherwise they are back to trying to kill us.’  The Pentagon is quoted in the article as saying that about 11% of those released go back ‘on duty’ being a terrorist. Let’s think about that for a second here. We already know that within our own prison system, which is the largest in the world by far, people that are sent up and then released, come out a better, hardened and more connected criminal, especially if they were sent there for small drug charges that carry long sentences. Go in because you had a bag of weed on you, come out a connected gang thug who’s had nothing better to do than lift weights and make connections with nasty people in order to stay alive.

Taken that we know that is how that works, if only 11% of Gitmo people released are ‘coming after us’ then we are doing pretty good. Repeat offenders from our general prison system are much higher than that. Here is what Wiki says about our general prison system:

A 2002 study survey showed that among nearly 275,000 prisoners released in 1994, 67.5% were rearrested within 3 years, and 51.8% were back in prison

So 11% vs 67.5%

We should be happy about that 11% shouldn’t we, since we also know that a stay in Gitmo is ,in a different way perhaps than ‘normal’ prisons, a very difficult place to be. Especially if they think you have some info. It’s a wonder to me that it’s not more like 80%+ immediately wanting to strike back at the country that locked them up, rendered them here secretly and tortured them.

There are only 2 conclusions I can come to about these numbers. Either only about 11% (or less even given the ‘conversion syndrome’) of Gitmo prisoners are/were actually terrorists (this is probably true…the real ones were escorted away and we rounded up sheep herders for the most part) or the Pentagon is lying about their numbers (which, again is also most likely true.)

If they want to scare us, they could have given us a higher number than 11%, compared to our normal prison turnover. It seems like they are going for numbers that show that we still need it and by golly it works much better than normal prison. Would we have a better prison system, with less turnover if everywhere was like Gitmo? That’s not an impossible sounding suggestion, given that they go on morning talk shows and say things like ‘The U.S. can never default, we can just print more money to cover the debt.’ Can’t you hear GOP candidates and their PR people on Fox news saying exactly this? They come on and say things like ‘it’s good that China uses lead in toys, it keeps costs down and that’s good for us.’ *Don’t believe me, look it up.* What I said is no less stupefyingly crazy but plausible.

But the real nugget of info in that entire article describes how they caught the repeat offender in the first place. Here is the  nugget, straight from the article:

He was captured in August 2002 while attending a meeting with U.S. military officials in Asadabad and transferred to the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay in October that same year. He was suspected of helping carry out rocket attacks against U.S. troops.

In bold is the key part. If this guy was al-Qaida why and for what purpose would he be ‘meeting’ with US military officials? That very much sounds like during a normal thing that happens, officials meeting with al-Qaida members they decided to double cross and nab him. Taken by itself, there are plenty of innocuous reasons why this happened this way, but the totality of this with other stories we already know, like bin-Laden meeting with CIA officials numerous times, even being treated in U.S. controlled hospitals months before 9/11 (and well after the Cole bombings…i.e. we were already ‘after him.’ NATO using al-Qaida right now against Khadafi. Iraq officials meeting with and getting a green light to invade Kuwait. 9/11 terrorists being trained at Pensacola Naval Air Station. The underpants gnome bomber being escorted onto the plane by officials. The FBI providing the bomb for the 93 WTC attack. It’s cumulative. And pretty definitive. These aren’t wacky theories, they were all reported by the news when they happened. And never retracted, just swept under the rug and never followed up on.

This is what we military folks call SIGINT. Signal Intelligence. You must have everything cleared lest you let enough tiny pieces of info out in various ways or sources that allows the enemy to put together the pieces and figure out more than they should know. They don’t even care anymore and I truly think they do this sort of thing to frighten those that are able to see things for how they are, i.e. those of us that haven’t had critical thinking skill beaten out of us by the education system, the absolute crap that is our food supply, the never ending march of talking media heads and mind numbingly stupid television programs that people, especially younger ones watch, huge personal investments of emotion of sporting events, increasingly mandatory vaccinations laced with toxins… the list goes on and on. They run the game and it’s SO pervasive that there is no escaping it. Even those of us that can see it, most can not drop off the grid and take care of ourselves, almost pioneer style because we are shackled by the system. We can see it, but that doesn’t mean we can escape it.

Stories like this (this one in particular looks like it was drafted by the intelligence community and released to AP…as so many do and are) operate on so many levels. Terrorism bad, Gitmo good. Gitmo works better than regular prisons, maybe we should expand it’s policies. Tiny tidbits that should leap out at people like ‘Why would a terrorist be meeting with our military? Wouldn’t that be dangerous as hell for either side?’ They know a tiny part of the populace that read this will ever pick up on it, and for the most part it’s people that already know what’s ‘really going on.’ So it’s a noserub job. Ha ha, we can outright say this and no one will even care! That’s the scariest part, is that nope…hardly anyone does.

Pics or it didn’t happen

Posted in Constitution Trampling, Corrupt Politicians, Election, Media, NWO, Philosophy, Politics, Uncategorized, War on May 5, 2011 by jonnyfrag

So the White House is refusing to publish or provide any proof that they ‘got bin Laden’ other than their word, which is literally changing several times a day thus far. He was armed, no one was armed, he used a wife as a shield, his wife is alive and says he was captured and then executed. Here’s the pics of them watching it happen real time, sorry the video was out so this is merely a staged photo to show what it was like, er, would have been like if it had worked. We are releasing photos, we aren’t. Goes on and on.

The idea behind not releasing the photos is that it would appear insensitive and incite more animosity towards the US. All the photos and videos of people literally dancing in the streets, those can stay.

I ask  you, which do you think would piss them off  more? A picture to prove that we did what we said or more regular Americans dancing in the streets and holding signs showing the Statue of Liberty holding OBL’s decapitated head? Pictures of regular citizens rejoicing in the death of a person, any person, really plays as ‘look at those blood thirsty Americans’ across the world.  It just does.

Also, the bigger point here is that we are supposed to be a nation of laws, of fairness and having a judicial system second to none. Now, I know many of you are already laughing, but hang on a moment and indulge me. That is supposed to be the idea of our country, even the most evil gets a fair shake in court, the most unpopular speech is what should be protected by the First Amendment and so on. We are supposed to be the good guys, the shining beacon, blazing the trail on the high road.  So why are we committing, what many newspapers even point right out, an international crime and assassination? Yeah, yeah he was at war with us and he was a commander and we had every right to shoot him as much as we had a right to shoot a Nazi commander etc… I hear those arguments and they really smack of laziness.

Would not the best thing to do would have been to bring him back, keep him in Gitmo under HEAVY guard and then put him on trial? That would have shown the world that America still stands for what we originally said we did. Justice cannot be served correctly unless it takes place under our own accepted rules of crime and punishment. This could have been a major boost in perception of America across the world, here’s the most wanted guy ever really (Take a poll, I bet OBL ranks more evil than Hitler in America) and we took him and prosecuted  him like we would any other criminal, according to our laws and customs. No doubt he would have received the death penalty and would have been found guilty, but we didn’t do that. We just committed what is ‘technically’ an international war crime, but it’s ok we get a pass because he was ‘so bad.’

The REAL thing here is that a trial could never ever have happened, for a couple of reasons.

a. There is NO WAY in hell they would allow him to ever be heard from on American TV because he simply knows about too many skeletons, including himself. Remember, no one is denying it, WE are the ones that initially recruited  him and his band of fighters to battle the evil red dog of the USSR. We made him, gave him guns and training and yes, even a paycheck (like he needed it!) No one wants him to be able to speak. Even the few real videos (since many…most actually since 9/11 were outright admitted fakes) we have to take the translators words for granted since most of us don’t speak Farsi or whatever language he spoke (probably some English since his family does so much business with Haliburton and the Bush family.)

b. He’s been dead for about 9 years now already. They pulled one last big job to blame on  him and then used the hunt for  him (partially) to launch new wars which are good for business and OBL was ok with that, he was about dead by then anyway. There have been many MANY people saying this over the years, and not schmucks on the internet or talk radio hosts only…big people like Madeline Albright, various intelligence officials, various other heads of state in the area, FBI agents and so on. He was known to need a lot of dialysis treatments. That typically means  your life expectancy is significantly shortened. It’s what’s called ‘circling the drain.’ Hard to provide evidence to something that couldn’t have happened anyway.

This is nothing more than a stunt to pull eyes off the still lingering birther debate (which I am sick and tired of) and to keep everyone talking about it. That’s why they are leaving so many loose ends and changing the story. They are going out of their way to make it seem like a badly executed operation. That makes me worried about what we SHOULD be paying attention to right now, cause it isn’t this story I can assure you of that.

The narrow minded people will slam this down with ‘YOU HATE AMERICA!’ and such. No. I love America. What America is supposed to be, but not what it is now which is the equivalent of the Empire. So I guess watch out for Ewoks.

New bin Laden Tape (fake)

Posted in Climate Change Swindle, Corrupt Politicians, Media, Politics, Right Wing Conspiracy, War on October 1, 2010 by jonnyfrag

There’s a new bin Laden audiotape out now (they don’t attempt faking videos since they do such a shitty job of it) and guess what his concern is?  Global warming of course. Is there any doubt that these are just releases to bolster the fake Republican view now?

Osama complains about global warming.

Military shocked at pain pill abuse…LOL

Posted in Uncategorized, War with tags , , , , , on March 17, 2010 by jonnyfrag

The Army and the military as a whole are ‘concerned’ about pain killers being prescribed to military members. Really?

If you keep people deployed and stressed and work their asses off for years on end, you are all the sudden shocked by 11% of those folks ‘abusing’ pain meds?

It must be really bad because when I was in the military, no matter what ailment you had, you were given 800mg ibuprofen (Motrin) and sent on your way. Toothache? Motrin. Lost a foot? Motrin. Underwent surgery? Motrin.

Remember this all comes from an organization that has for decades experimented with various drugs to invent a tireless super-soldier. LSD, amphetamines, various experimental vaccinations…the list is nearly endless. Soldiers are used as guinea pigs on a regular basis. It has always been this way and will continue to be. Just Google experimental drug use by military and see for yourself. Only about 1.2 million hits.

If you want to run kids through a meat grinder, the least you can do is let them have something to not hurt while you continue to run them through. Besides, as soon as their deployments are over and they come back to the real world they will have to dry out because all their benefits will disappear and they won’t be able to get any more pills.

Humor Friday

After a bad and evil kinda week, at least it’s Friday and my convenience store guy found me some Throwback Pepsi’s in the backroom and held onto them for me.

Here is a great picture that someone forwarded me under the caption:

When your children ask you how we responded to the 9/11 attacks just show them this:

Smackdown

Didn’t we just get off this ride?

So, if you disagree with Obama’s White House, you are helping the turrists.

Wait a minute. Didn’t we just get done saying how stupid statements like this really are? How to merely question power is to be totally opposed to it and therefore assisting the enemy? The Republicans are ‘just asking questions’ and inferring that the White House is being run as a secretive and evil monarchy. You know, JUST LIKE BUSH DID. As well as Clinton, Pappy Bush, Reagan, Carter, et. al before  him.

On a more upbeat note, here is perhaps the greatest Sarah Palin joke of the week (from Reddit.)

What’s the difference between Sarah Palin’s mouth and her vagina?

Only some of the things that come out of her vagina are retarded.

Why won’t this woman just go away?

Check the insanity here.

Sarah Palin says Obama can insure his re-election by just declaring war on Iran. This is wrong on so many levels. A president cannot declare war himself. By the Constitution anyway, but I don’t think this has been adhered to since World War II anyway so we will give her that one.

The  voters that just vote straight ticket with no clue as to who or what they are voting for are not going to magically become aware and get behind the Socialist Black Muslim Kenyan Hitler just because he does something that you would have expected a McCain to do. Obama has continued or even broadened most of the crazy policies that Bush left behind anyway. Hope? Change? Not even close.

A total war with Iran, if you ignore the probability that they are just playing their part in the global theater of politics (much like professional wrestling,) would be a disaster. It would be at a minimum a repeat of the Iraq boondoggle, except that Iran has better access to nukes than Iraq was supposed to have. There is only a small part of the public that realizes that the weapons of mass destruction that we were all worried about in Iraq were given/sold to them by us back in the 80s. There is even less of the public that knows and understands that we funded Iran for many years right up to then as well. We supplied both sides of that conflict because war is big money and our military industrial complex has never passed up a chance to make money by selling to both sides of any war, even going all the way back to World War II. Many large companies and rich powerful men whose names you would know were busted for selling to the Nazis even after we started battling them in the European theater.

Sarah Palin is nothing more than a political clown, an easy target for the social comedians of today, but even scarier, a high polling candidate for the Republican party. In a world that is full of constant fear-mongering , that is something that truly is scary as hell.
