25 May 2014 — Washington’sBlog

2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

White House information warfare By Vladimir Platov

20 March 2014 — New Eastern Outlook

The White House and its henchmen, in the forms of the U.S. intelligence and the Pentagon, have been using social networking sites to overthrow undesirable regimes at least since 2000. An entire industry of misinformation and public opinion manipulation has been created. Acting on the orders of Washington, real or virtual activists are trying to convince public opinion of the “spontaneous” nature of popular protests, and the conducted psychological war operations are presented as the “free expression of public opinion”. All the events of the “Arab Spring”, “color revolutions” or the latest developments in Ukraine are typical examples of how an unstable socio-political and general economic situation in a country is widely used for making radical changes in a country’s government.

C is for Camouflage By Michael Hudson

10 August 2013 — Michael Hudson

Part C in the Insider’s Economic Dictionary

Camouflage: A cloak of artificial attractiveness or even of invisibility. Financial debt-claims on the economy’s income and assets camouflage themselves as wealth, although the financial tactic is to strip it. (See Euphemism and Parasite.)

Video: How the Pentagon Papers Came to be Published By the Beacon Press Told by Daniel Ellsberg & Others

24 July 2013 — Democracy Now!

Forty-one years ago, Beacon Press lost a Supreme Court case brought against it by the U.S. government for publishing the first full edition of the Pentagon Papers. It is now well known how The New York Times first published excerpts of the top-secret documents in June 1971, but less well known is how the Beacon Press, a small nonprofit publisher affiliated with the Unitarian Universalist Association, came to publish the complete 7,000 pages that exposed the true history of U.S. involvement in Vietnam.

“The Shell Game” and the Osama bin Laden Documents By Lauren Harper

8 July, 2013 — Unredacted 

A before and after shot of the Abbottabad Compound, site of the Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden. Adm. McRaven seems to be trying to erase the US records of the raid the same way Pakistan tried to erase the compound itself.

What could possibly compel the government to go out of its way to hide the official record on the most important raid in history? It’s hard to fathom, but a recent Associated Press article by Richard Larner shows that the Pentagon is doing just that by sending all its records on the Osama bin Laden raid to the CIA, effectively sealing them into the “FOIA black hole” of government secrecy, and it has Archive Director Tom Blanton wondering if we have a “shell game in place of open government.”

Egypt is currently at a dangerous crossroads which could evolve towards a civil war.

It is important to understand Washington’s role, which is carried out by the Pentagon and US intelligence.
