Westliche System Lügen: Achmadinedschad – westliche Medien nennen seine Rede Eklat

Achmadinedschad – westliche Medien nennen seine Rede Eklat und betreiben dabei Verklärung in verbrecherischer Weise

An dieser Stelle wollte ich ursprünglich einen eigenen Beitrag zum Thema „Achmadinedschad, dessen Rede vor der UNO- Hauptversammlung und die Verfälschung in den westlichen Medien“ schreiben. Das ist nicht nötig, da der Kollege Hartmut Beyerl, der den Blog „Hinter der Fichte“ betreibt, einen passenden Beitrag dazu verfasst hat, den ich nachfolgend übernehmen werde.
Es ist grausam und erleuchtend zugleich, wie sich die Hofberichterstatter, die sich ja selbst so gerne als „Qualitätsmedien“ bezeichnen, an der verbrecherischen Politik beteiligen und in meinen Augen dadurch sogar die Hauptschuld an dem Elend in der Welt tragen. Statt ihrer Pflicht nachzukommen, Aufklärung zu betreiben und Neutralität zu wahren, betreiben sie Verklärung, Hetze und Verblödung.
Jeder Krieg wird in den Köpfen geführt und gewonnen. Das war schon immer so.
Es geht hier den Medien eben nicht hauptsächlich darum, eine Person zu verunglimpfen. Es geht hier darum, einen Krieg vorzubereiten. Einen Krieg gegen das iranische Volk.
Dieses Spiel ist längstens bekannt und für jeden erkennbar. Ob die Personifizierungen nun Salvador Allende, Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein, Slobodan Milošević, Wladimir Putin, Adolf Schickelgruber, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Geronimo, Daniel Ortega, Hugo Chávez oder Mahmud Ahmadinedschad heißen – um nur einige zu nennen – immer ging und geht es darum, sich der Territorien der Völker zu bemächtigen, denen diese Personen angehören. Oftmals pflegten sie zuvor zu diesen „Personifizierungen des Bösen“ beste Beziehungen und förderten deren Macht.
Wir Deutschen leiden heute noch darunter. Es ist wahrlich kein Geheimnis, dass Adolf Hitler ohne die Finanzspritzen und Intrigen der USA niemals die totale Macht in Deutschland übernehmen hätte können. Die gängige Geschichtsschreibung ignoriert und verklärt diese Fakten, doch sie bleiben dennoch wahr.
Es handelt sich um das altbewährte Rezept, erst Probleme zu erschaffen und dann die Lösung anzubieten. Dieses Rezept funktioniert nicht nur auf politischem Gebiet hervorragend, sondern auch in der Wirtschaft (Pharmaindustrie) und anderswo.
Und vergesst es, wenn ihr mir vorwerfen wollt, ich verfolgte einen „oberflächlichen Antiamerikanismus„. Zum einen ist er nicht oberflächlich, zum anderen habe ich nichts gegen Amerika und dessen Volk.
Die USA ist das Zentrum der kapitalistischen Welt und demzufolge auch das Zentrum des Kapitals.
Wäre morgen Peking dessen Zentrum, würde China die Rolle der USA übernehmen. Das System ist die Ursache. Ein System, das darauf ausgelegt ist, möglichst viel Reichtum mit möglichst wenig Aufwand zu scheffeln. Ja selbst Reichtum, der überhaupt keines Aufwandes bedarf (Zins, Zinseszins) – das Prinzip einer vermeintlichen „Leistungsgesellschaft„. Alle Strukturen sind darauf ausgelegt, andere Menschen über den Tisch zu ziehen, also ausbeuten zu können. Und dabei machen sie nicht nur beim Menschen halt. Denn macht sie euch zum Untertan, sagen und glauben die Primitiven (aber auch die Nutznießer und die Konsequenzlosen) und heiligen derartigen Schwachsinn noch.
Und glauben sie mir, wenn ich im 18. Jhd. gelebt hätte, wäre ich mit Sicherheit nach Amerika ausgewandert. Das heißt, wenn man mich nicht zuvor in einen dunklen Kerker geworfen oder auf dem Scheiterhaufen verbrannt hätte. In Amerika wurden einst die alten Strukturen überwunden, aber auch die alten Strukturen fortentwickelt. Von der Überwindung der alten Strukturen ist im Amerika des 21. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr viel übriggeblieben bzw. diese Überwindung wird von den Herrschenden zunehmend überwunden.

Achmadinedschad: Vernünftige Fragen – im Westen Eklat.

Was hat Achmadinedschad wirklich gesagt?

Die NATO-Staaten können nicht einmal mehr Fragen ertragen und ein paar ihrer Leute verlassen am 21. September den Saal der UNO-Vollversammlung in New York. Ein paar Dutzend Ewiggestrige gehen aus einem Raum mit 1000 Zuhörern. DAS ist die Nachricht der Gleichgeschalteten. Warum, das erfährt der Konsument nicht.

The same procedure like every year. Wenn Achmadinedschad spricht verlassen die getroffenen Hunde den Saal. Die Journaille holt den Stehsatz vom „Eklat“ raus.

Der klingt dann beim Mainstream – man beachte das meinungs- und stimmungsmachende Vokabular – so:

ARD

„Mit wüsten Beschimpfungen gegen die USA, die NATO und den Westen allgemein hat Irans Präsident Mahmud Achmadinedschad wieder für einen Eklat bei den Vereinten Nationen gesorgt. Dutzende Delegierte aus den USA, Europa und anderen Staaten verließen in New York demonstrativ den Saal, als Achmadinedschad „die, die sich freiheitliche Demokratien nennen“, als „Wurzel des Bösen“, als „Sklavenmeister und Kolonialherren von damals“ bezeichnete. … Auch die deutsche Delegation ging hinaus. Ein Sprecher des Außenministeriums begründete dies mit Ahmadinedschads „kruden Tiraden“ gegen die USA, Israel und den Westen insgesamt. Außenminister Guido Westerwelle war zu der Rede gar nicht erst erschienen…. Aus französischen Delegationskreisen hieß es, die Europäer hätten sich vorab auf das Verlassen des Saales verständigt, sobald Achmadinedschad den Holocaust erwähne. … „Wirkliche Freiheit, Gerechtigkeit, Frieden und Glück sind das Recht aller Nationen. Das kann nicht von der Arroganz und den Gewehrläufen der NATO unterdrückt werden“, hatte Achmadinedschad gesagt. Die Medien seien unter einer „imperialistischen Knechtschaft und schweigen jeden tot, der den Holocaust und die Ereignisse des 11. Septembers 2001 in Frage stellt“. … Außerdem machte er die USA für Kriege und die Finanzkrise verantwortlich und forderte den Westen zu Entschädigungszahlungen wegen der Sklaverei auf. „Sie unterstützen offiziell Rassismus“, sagte Achmadinedschad. Er empfahl zugleich eine neue Weltordnung. Erlösung von Tyrannei und Diskriminierung könne nur Allah bringen. Vor einem Jahr hatte Ahmadinedschad für einen ähnlichen Eklat gesorgt, als er behauptete, die Amerikaner hätten die Anschläge vom 11. September, bei denen fast 3000 Menschen starben, selbst inszeniert.“ 

Auch der letzte Satz der ARD ist eine Lüge, wie man hier bei uns leicht selbst lesen kann. Natürlich werden die Homo sapiens mitlaeuferensis durch dieses alljährliche Theater des Mainstreams vom Wesentlichen abgelenkt. Die Rede Achmadinedschads an sich wird nicht veröffentlicht, falsch zitiert, falsch übersetzt und nach der Thomas Roth-Methode verdreht. Dabei wäre eine offensive Auseinandersetzung mit dem politischen Gegner Iran doch hochinteressant für uns. Doch Staatsführer die unbequeme Fragen stellen sind nicht erwünscht. Die mediale Strategie des Imperiums pickt einzelne Punkte heraus und verschiebt so die Schwerpunkte. Die unerträglich langen Sprechblasen des van Rompuy in New York dagegen wurden auf euronews sogar live übertragen.

Eins vorweg: Achmadinedschad hat in seiner Rede den Holocaust nicht in Frage gestellt und auch nicht die USA beschuldigt, den 11. September selbst verursacht zu haben. Er tat das auch im letzten Jahr nicht.

Was hat die Wut der USA, der NATO und ihrer Medien hervorgerufen?

Schauen wir uns ein paar wichtige Auszüge der Rede an. Eine vollständige Übersetzung demnächst hier.

„Heute, unter Berücksichtigung der internationalen Entwicklungen, will ich versuchen, die gegenwärtige Situation aus einem anderen Blickwinkel zu betrachten. Die meisten Nationen der Welt sind unglücklich mit den gegenwärtigen internationalen Bedingungen. Ungefähr 3 Milliarden Menschen auf der Welt leben mit weniger als 2,5 Dollar am Tag und über 1 Milliarde Menschen leben ohne eine einzige ausreichende Mahlzeit am Tag. Mehr als 20.000 unschuldige notleidende Kinder sterben jeden Tag auf der Welt aus Armut. In den USA werden 80% der finanziellen Reserven durch 10% der Bevölkerung kontrolliert, während nur 20% dieser Ressourcen 90% der Bevölkerung gehören. Was sind die Ursachen und Gründe hinter dieser Ungleichheit? Wie kann man solcher Ungerechtigkeit abhelfen?

Liebe Kollegen und Freunde, würden Sie nicht auch denken, dass die Ursache der Probleme in der dominierenden internationalen Ordnung gesucht werden muss oder in der Art wie die Welt regiert wird? Wer vertrieb gewaltsam mehrere 10 Millionen Menschen aus ihrer Heimat in Afrika und anderen Regionen der Welt in der dunklen Zeit der Sklaverei und machte sie zum Opfer ihrer materialistischen Gier? Wer drängte der Welt für über 400 Jahre den Kolonialismus auf? Wer okkupierte Länder und plünderte die Ressourcen anderer Nationen, zerstörte Talente und entfremdete Sprachen, Kulturen und Identitäten der Nationen? Wer löste den ersten und zweiten Weltkrieg aus, der sieben Millionen Tote hinterließ und hunderte Millionen Verletzte und Heimatlose? Wer kreierte die Kriege in Korea und Vietnam? Wer schuf durch Täuschungen und Heucheleien den Zionismus und mehr als 60 Jahre Krieg, Heimatlosigkeit, Terror und Massenmorden am Palästinensischen Volk und in Ländern anderer Regionen? Wer installierte und unterstützte für Jahrzehnte militärische Diktaturen und totalitäre Regimes in Afrika, Asien und Lateinamerikanischen Nationen? Wer setzte Atombomben gegen schutzlose Menschen ein und lagerte tausende Gefechtskämpfe in den Arsenalen. Wessen Wirtschaft stützt sich auf das Treiben von Kriegen und den Waffenhandel? Wer provozierte und ermutigte Saddam Hussein in den Iran einzufallen und einen achtjährigen Krieg zu führen? Und wer assistierte ihm und rüstete ihn aus, um chemische Waffen gegen unsere Städte und unser Volk einzusetzen? Wer nutzte den mysteriösen 11. September als Vorwand, um Afghanistan und Irak anzugreifen und in zwei Ländern Millionen zu töten, zu verletzen und zu vertreiben mit dem ultimativen Ziel, Herrschaft über den Mittleren Osten und seine Ölreserven zu erlangen? Wer annullierte das Breton Woods System durch das Drucken von Billionen von Dollars ohne Deckung durch Goldreserven oder entsprechende Währung? Eine Bewegung, die weltweite Inflation auslöste und motiviert war die ökonomischen Errungenschaften anderer Nationen auszuplündern. Die Militärausgaben welchen Landes übersteigen jährlich Tausend Milliarden Dollar, mehr als die Militärbudgets aller Länder zusammen? Welche Regierungen sind die meist verschuldeten in der Welt? Wer dominiert das politikbestimmende Establishment der Weltwirtschaft? Wer ist verantwortlich für die Rezession der Weltwirtschaft und zwingt die Konsequenzen Amerika, Europa und der Welt generell auf? Welche Regierungen sind immer bereit, Tausende Bomben auf andere Länder zu werfen, aber müssen darüber nachdenken und zögern, Hilfe für die von Hungersnöten heimgesuchten Menschen in Somalia oder anderen Orten zu leisten? Wer sind jene die den Sicherheitsrat dominieren, der angeblich verantwortlich ist für den Schutz der internationalen Sicherheit? Es gibt Dutzende andere ähnlicher Fragen. Die Antwort ist natürlich klar. Die Mehrheit der Nationen und Regierungen der Welt spielten keine Rolle bei der Entstehung der gegenwärtigen globalen Krise und es ist Tatsache, sie waren selbst Opfer solcher Politik.“

Achmadinedschad hat das Wort „Holocaust“ zweimal verwendet und zwar im folgenden Zusammenhang: (Wortlaut)

Most criminal of the world: Donald Rumsfeld: Welcome to Boston, Mr. Rumsfeld. You Are Under Arrest

Welcome to Boston, Mr. Rumsfeld. You Are Under Arrest
By Ralph Lopez
Global Research, September 20, 2011
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has been stripped of legal immunity for acts of torture against US citizens authorized while he was in office.

The 7th Circuit made the ruling in the case of two American contractors who were tortured by the US military in Iraq after uncovering a smuggling ring within an Iraqi security company.  The company was under contract to the Department of Defense.   The company was assisting Iraqi insurgent groups in the “mass acquisition” of American weapons.  The ruling comes as Rumsfeld begins his book tour with a visit to Boston on Monday, September 26, and as new, uncensored photos of Abu Ghraib spark fresh outrage across Internet.  Awareness is growing that Bush-era crimes went far beyond mere waterboarding.

Torture Room, Abu Ghraib

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters in 2004 of photos withheld by the Defense Department from Abu Ghraib, “The American public needs to understand, we’re talking about rape and murder here… We’re not just talking about giving people a humiliating experience. We’re talking about rape and murder and some very serious charges.”  And journalist Seymour Hersh says: “boys were sodomized with the cameras rolling. And the worst above all of that is the soundtrack of the boys shrieking that your government has.”
Rumsfeld resigned days before a criminal complaint was filed in Germany in which the American general who commanded the military police battalion at Abu Ghraib had promised to testify.  General Janis Karpinski in an interview with Salon.com was asked: “Do you feel like Rumsfeld is at the heart of all of this and should be held completely accountable for what happened [at Abu Ghraib]?”
Karpinski answered: “Yes, absolutely.”  In the criminal complaint filed in Germany against Rumsfeld, Karpinski submitted 17 pages of testimony and offered to appear before the German prosecutor as a witness.  Congressman Kendrick Meek of Florida, who participated in the hearings on Abu Ghraib, said of Rumsfeld: “There was no way Rumsfeld didn’t know what was going on. He’s a guy who wants to know everything.”
And Major General Antonio Taguba, who led the official Army investigation into Abu Ghraib, said in his report:
“there is no longer any doubt as to whether the [Bush] administration has committed war crimes. The only question is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”
Abu Ghraib Prisoner Smeared with Feces
Amazingly, the two American contractors in the 7th Circuit decision were known by the military to be working undercover for the FBI, to whom they had reported witnessing the sale of U.S government munitions to Iraqi rebel groups.  The FBI in Iraq had vouched for Vance and Ertel numerous times before they nevertheless disappeared into military custody.  They were held at Camp Cropper in Iraq where the two were tortured, one for 97 days, and the other for six weeks.
In a puzzling and incriminating move, Camp Cropper base commander General John Gardner ordered Nathan Ertel released on May 17, 2006, while keeping Donald Vance in detention for another two months of torture.  By ordering the release of one man but not the other, Gardner revealed awareness of the situation but prolonged it at the same time.
It is unlikely that Gardner could act alone in a situation as sensitive as the illegal detention and torture of two Americans confirmed by the FBI to be working undercover in the national interest, to prevent American weapons and munitions from reaching the hands of insurgents, for the sole purpose of using them to kill American troops.  Vance and Ertel suggest he was acting on orders from the highest political level.
The forms of torture employed against the Americans included “techniques” which crop up frequently in descriptions of Iraqi and Afghan prisoner abuse at Bagram, Guantanamo, and Abu Ghraib.  They included “walling,” where the head is slammed repeatedly into a concrete wall, sleep deprivation to the point of psychosis by use of round-the-clock bright lights and harsh music at ear-splitting volume, in total isolation, for days, weeks or months at a time, and intolerable cold.
The 7th Circuit ruling is the latest in a growing number of legal actions involving hundreds of former prisoners and torture victims filed in courts around the world.  Criminal complaints have been filed against Rumsfeld and other Bush administration officials in Germany, France, and Spain.  Former President Bush recently curbed travel to Switzerland due to fear of arrest following criminal complaints lodged in Geneva.  “He’s avoiding the handcuffs,” Reed Brody, counsel for Human Rights Watch, told Reuters.
And the Mayor of London threatened Bush with arrest for war crimes earlier this year should he ever set foot in his city, saying that were he to land in London to “flog his memoirs,” that “the real trouble — from the Bush point of view — is that he might never see Texas again.”
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell’s Chief-of-Staff Col. Lawrence Wilkerson surmised on MSNBC earlier this year that soon, Saudi Arabia and Israel will be “the only two countries Cheney, Rumsfeld and the rest will travel to.”
Abu Ghraib: Dog Bites
What would seem to make Rumsfeld’s situation more precarious is the number of credible former officials and military officers who seem to be eager to testify against him, such as Col. Wilkerson and General Janis Karpinsky.
In a signed declaration in support of torture plaintiffs in a civil suit naming Rumsfeld in the US District Court for the District of Columbia, Col. Wilkerson, one of Rumsfeld’s most vociferous critics,  stated: “I am willing to testify in person regarding the  content of this declaration, should that be necessary.”  That declaration, among other things, affirmed that a documentary on the chilling murder of a 22-year-old Afghan farmer and taxi driver in Afghanistan was “accurate.”  Wilkerson said earlier this year that in that case, and in the case of another murder at Bagram at about the same time, “authorization for the abuse went to the very top of the United States government.”
Dilawar
The young farmer’s name was Dilawar.  The New York Times reported on May 20, 2005:
“Four days before [his death,] on the eve of the Muslim holiday of Id al-Fitr, Mr. Dilawar set out from his tiny village of Yakubi in a prized new possession, a used Toyota sedan that his family bought for him a few weeks earlier to drive as a taxi.On the day that he disappeared, Mr. Dilawar’s mother had asked him to gather his three sisters from their nearby villages and bring them home for the holiday. However, he needed gas money and decided instead to drive to the provincial capital, Khost, about 45 minutes away, to look for fares.”
Dilawar’s misfortune was to drive past the gate of an American base which had been hit by a rocket attack that morning.  Dilawar and his fares were arrested at a checkpoint by a warlord, who was later suspected of mounting the rocket attack himself, and then turning over randam captures like Dilawar in order to win trust.
“Guards at Bagram routinely kneed prisoners in their thighs — a blow called a ‘peroneal strike’… Whenever a guard did this to Dilawar, he would cry out, ‘Allah! Allah!’ Some guards apparently found this amusing, and would strike him repeatedly to show off the behavior to buddies. One military policeman told investigators, ‘Everybody heard him cry out and thought it was funny. … It went on over a 24-hour period, and I would think that it was over 100 strikes.’”
Dilawar was shackled from the ceiling much of the time, with his feet barely able to touch the ground.  On the last day of his life, after 4 days at Bagram, an interpreter who was present said his legs were bouncing uncontrollably as he sat in a plastic chair. He had been chained by the wrists to the top of his cell for much of the previous four days.
The New York Times reported that on the last day of his life, four days after he was arrested:
“Mr. Dilawar asked for a drink of water, and one of the two interrogators, Specialist Joshua R. Claus, 21, picked up a large plastic bottle. But first he punched a hole in the bottom, the interpreter said, so as the prisoner fumbled weakly with the cap, the water poured out over his orange prison scrubs. The soldier then grabbed the bottle back and began squirting the water forcefully into Mr. Dilawar’s face. “Come on, drink!” the interpreter said Specialist Claus had shouted, as the prisoner gagged on the spray. “Drink!”
At the interrogators’ behest, a guard tried to force the young man to his knees. But his legs, which had been pummeled by guards for several days, could no longer bend. An interrogator told Mr. Dilawar that he could see a doctor after they finished with him. When he was finally sent back to his cell, though, the guards were instructed only to chain the prisoner back to the ceiling.
“‘Leave him up,’ one of the guards quoted Specialist Claus as saying.”
The next time the prison medic saw Dilawar a few hours later, he was dead, his head lolled to one side and his body beginning to stiffen.  A coroner would testify that his legs “had basically been pulpified.” The Army coroner, Maj. Elizabeth Rouse, said: “I’ve seen similar injuries in an individual run over by a bus.” She testified that had he lived, Dilawar’s legs would have had to be amputated.
Despite the military’s false statement that Dilawar’s death was the result of “natural causes,” Maj. Rouse marked the death certificate as a “homicide” and arranged for the certificate to be delivered to the family.  The military was forced to retract the statement when a reporter for the New York Times, Carlotta Gall, tracked down Dilawar’s family in Afghanistan and was given a folded piece of paper by Dilawar’s brother.  It was the death certificate, which he couldn’t read, because it was in English.
The practice of forcing prisoners to stand for long periods of time, links Dilawar’s treatment to a memo which bears Rumsfeld’s own handwriting on that particular subject.  Obtained through a Freedom of Information Act Request, the memo may show how fairly benign-sounding authorizations for clear circumventions of the Geneva Conventions may have translated into gruesome practice on the battlefield.
The memo, which addresses keeping prisoners “standing” for up to four hours, is annotated with a note initialed by Rumfeld reading: “I stand for 8–10 hours a day. Why is standing limited to 4 hours?”  Not mentioned in writing anywhere is anything about accomplishing this by chaining prisoners to the ceiling.  There is evidence that, unable to support his weight on tiptoe for the days on end he was chained to the ceiling, Dilawars arms dislocated, and they flapped around uselessly when he was taken down for interrogation.  The National Catholic Reporter writes, “They flapped like a bird’s broken wings.”
Contradicting, on the record, a February 2003 statement by Rumfeld’s top commander in Afghnanistan at the time, General Daniel McNeill, that “we are not chaining people to the ceilings,” is Spc. Willie Brand, the only soldier disciplined in the death of Dilawar, with a reduction in rank.  Told of McNeill’s statement, Brand told Scott Pelley on 60 Minutes: “Well, he’s lying.”  Brand said of his punishment: “I didn’t understand how they could do this after they had trained you to do this stuff and they turn around and say you’ve been bad.”

Binyam, Genital-Slicing
Binyam Mohamed was seized by the Pakistani Forces in April 2002 and turned over to the Americans for a $5,000 bounty.  He was held for more than five years without charge or trial in Bagram Air Force Base, Guantánamo Bay, and third country “black” sites.
In his diary he describes being flown by a US government plane to a prison in Morocco. He writes:
“They cut off my clothes with some kind of doctor’s scalpel. I was naked. I tried to put on a brave face. But maybe I was going to be raped. Maybe they’d electrocute me. Maybe castrate me…One of them took my penis in his hand and began to make cuts. He did it once, and they stood still for maybe a minute, watching my reaction. I was in agony. They must have done this 20 to 30 times, in maybe two hours. There was blood all over. ‘I told you I was going to teach you who’s the man,’ [one] eventually said.
“They cut all over my private parts. One of them said it would be better just to cut it off, as I would only breed terrorists. I asked for a doctor.
“I was in Morocco for 18 months. Once they began this, they would do it to me about once a month. One time I asked a guard: ‘What’s the point of this? I’ve got nothing I can say to them. I’ve told them everything I possibly could.’
“‘As far as I know, it’s just to degrade you. So when you leave here, you’ll have these scars and you’ll never forget. So you’ll always fear doing anything but what the US wants.’
“Later, when a US airplane picked me up the following January, a female MP took pictures. She was one of the few Americans who ever showed me any sympathy. When she saw the injuries I had she gasped. They treated me and took more photos when I was in Kabul. Someone told me this was ‘to show Washington it’s healing.’”
The obvious question for any prosecutor in Binyam’s case is: Who does “Washington” refer to?  Rumfeld?  Cheney?  Is it not in the national interest to uncover these most depraved of sadists at the highest level?  US Judge Gladys Kessler, in her findings on Binyam made in relation to a Guantanamo prisoner’s petition, found Binyam exceedingly credible.  She wrote:
“His genitals were mutilated. He was deprived of sleep and food. He was summarily transported from one foreign prison to another. Captors held him in stress positions for days at a time. He was forced to listen to piercingly loud music and the screams of other prisoners while locked in a pitch-black cell. All the while, he was forced to inculpate himself and others in plots to imperil Americans. The government does not dispute this evidence.”
Obama: Torturers’ Last Defense
The prospect of Rumsfeld in a courtroom cannot possibly be relished by the Obama administration, which has now cast itself as the last and staunchest defender of the embattled former officials, including John Yoo, Alberto Gonzalez, Judge Jay Bybee, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, and others.  The administration employed an unprecedented twisting of arms in order to keep evidence in a lawsuit which Binyam had filed in the UK suppressed, threatening an end of cooperation between the British MI5 and the CIA.  This even though the British judges whose hand was forced puzzled that the evidence contained “no disclosure of sensitive intelligence matters.”  The judges suggested another reason for the secrecy requested by the Obama administration, that it might be “politically embarrassing.”
The Obama Justice Department’s active involvement in seeking the dismissal of the cases is by choice, as the statutory obligation of the US Attorney General to defend cases against public officials ends the day they leave office.  Indeed, the real significance of recent court decisions, the one by the 7th Circuit and yet another against Rumsfeld in a DC federal court, may be the clarification the common misconception that high officials are forever immune for crimes committed while in office, in the name of the state.  The misconception persists despite just a moment of thought telling one that if this were true, Hermann Goering, Augusto Pinochet, and Charles Taylor would never have been arrested, for they were all in office at the time they ordered atrocities, and they all invoked national security.
Judge Kessler’s findings point to yet another even more alarming aspect of the Bush-era crimes for which Rumsfeld is now being pursued for his part.  And that is the emerging evidence that the tortures perpetrated were not designed to protect national security at all, but to obtain false confessions in order to score propaganda points for the War on terror.
“As it happens, one of the confessions that was tortured out of Binyam is so ludicrous that it was soon dropped…The US authorities insisted that Padilla and Binyam had dinner with various high-up members of al-Qaeda the night before Padilla was to fly off to America. According to their theory the dinner party had to have been on the evening of 3 April in Karachi … Binyam was  meant to have dined with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Abu Zubaydah, Sheikh al-Libi, Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Jose Padilla. What made the scenario ‘absurd,’ as [Binyam’s lawyer] pointed out, was that ‘two of the conspirators were already in U.S. custody at the time — Abu Zubaydah was seized six days before, on 28 March 2002, and al-Libi had been held since November 2001.’”
The charges against Binyam were dropped, after the prosecutor, Lieutenant Colonel Darrel Vandeveld, resigned. He told the BBC later that he had concerns at the repeated suppression of evidence that could prove prisoners’ innocence.
The litany of tortures alleged against Rumsfeld in the military prisons he ran could go on for some time.  The new photographic images from Abu Ghraib make it hard to conceive of how the methods of torture and dehumanization could have possibly served a national purpose.
The approved use of attack dogs, sexual humiliation, forced masturbation, and treatments which plumb the depths of human depravity are either documented in Rumsfeld’s own memos, or credibly reported on.
“The sexual humiliation of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison was not an invention of maverick guards, but part of a system of ill-treatment and degradation used by special forces soldiers that is now being disseminated among ordinary troops and contractors who do not know what they are doing, according to British military sources. The techniques devised in the system, called R2I – resistance to interrogation – match the crude exploitation and abuse of prisoners at the Abu Ghraib jail in Baghdad.
“One former British special forces officer who returned last week from Iraq, said: ‘It was clear from discussions with US private contractors in Iraq that the prison guards were using R2I techniques, but they didn’t know what they were doing.’”
Torture Now Aimed at Americans, Programs Designed to Obtain False Confessions, Not Intelligence
The worst of the worst is that Rumsfeld’s logic strikes directly at the foundations of our democracy and the legitimacy of the War on Terror.  The torture methods studied and adopted by the Bush administration were not new, but adopted from the Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape program (SERE) which is taught to elite military units.  The program was developed during the Cold War, in response to North Korean, Chinese, and Soviet Bloc torture methods.  But the aim of those methods was never to obtain intelligence, but to elicit false confessions.  The Bush administration asked the military to “reverse engineer” the methods, i.e. figure out how to break down resistance to false confessions.
In the 2008 Senate Armed Services Committee report which indicted high-level Bush administration officials, including Rumsfeld, as bearing major responsibility for the torture at Abu Gharib, Guantanamo, and Bagram, the Committee said:
“SERE instructors explained “Biderman’s Principles” – which were based on coercive methods used by the Chinese Communist dictatorship to elicit false confessions from U.S. POWs during the Korean War – and left with GTMO personnel a chart of those coercive techniques.”
The Biderman Principles were based on the work of Air Force Psychiatrist Albert Biderman, who wrote the landmark “Communist Attempts to Elecit False Confessions from Air Force Prisoners of War,” on which SERE resistance was based.  Biderman wrote:
“The experiences of American Air Force prisoners of war in Korea who were pressured for false confessions, enabled us to compile an outline of methods of eliciting compliance, not much different, it turned out, from those reported by persons held by Communists of other nations.  I have prepared a chart showing a condensed version of this outline.”
The chart is a how-to for communist torturers interested only in false confessions for propaganda purposes, not intelligence.  It was the manual for, in Biderman’s words, “brainwashing.”  In the reference for Principle Number 7, “Degradation,” the chart explains:
“Makes Costs of Resistance Appear More Damaging to Self-Esteem than Capitulation; Reduces Prisoner to “Animal Level…Personal Hygiene Prevented; Filthy, Infested Surroundings; Demeaning Punishments; Insults and Taunts; Denial of Privacy”
Appallingly, this could explain that even photos such as those of feces-smeared prisoners at Abu Ghraib might not, as we would hope, be only the individual work of particularly demented guards, but part of systematic degradation authorized at the highest levels.
Exhibit: Abu Ghraib, Female POW
This could go far toward explaining why the Bush administration seemed so tone-deaf to intelligence professionals, including legendary CIA Director William Colby, who essentially told them they were doing it all wrong.  A startling level of consensus existed within the intelligence community that the way to produce good intelligence was to gain the trust of prisoners and to prove everything they had been told by their recruiters, about the cruelty and degeneracy of America, to be wrong.

Libyen: Schwere Foltervorwürfe gegen „Rebellenrat“ kein Thema für westliche Medien und Politiker

Rumsfeld ist sowieso total korrupt und kriminell gewesen und mit Richard Pearle, Wolfowitz, der Motor fuer die Kriege gewesen.

Ex-US-4-Sterne-General Wesley Clark am 3. Oktober 2007:

Rumsfeld hatte 2001 Libyen auf der Liste

Demnächst Syrien, Libanon und Iran?

Video, acht Minuten. Einschlägig ab Minute 2:10

Dazu Wesley Clark auf Democracy Now! vom 2. März 2007, Rohmitschrift:

What I did warn about when I testified in front of Congress in 2002, I said if you want to worry about a state, it shouldn’t be Iraq, it should be Iran. But this government, our administration, wanted to worry about Iraq, not Iran.

I knew why, because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, „Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.“ I said, „Well, you’re too busy.“ He said, „No, no.“ He says, „We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.“ This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, „We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?“ He said, „I don’t know.“ He said, „I guess they don’t know what else to do.“ So I said, „Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?“ He said, „No, no.“ He says, „There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.“ He said, „I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.“ And he said, „I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.“

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, „Are we still going to war with Iraq?“ And he said, „Oh, it’s worse than that.“ He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, „I just got this down from upstairs“ — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — „today.“ And he said, „This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.“ I said, „Is it classified?“ He said, „Yes, sir.“ I said, „Well, don’t show it to me.“ And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, „You remember that?“ He said, „Sir, I didn’t show you that memo! I didn’t show it to you!“

Angriffskrieg der NATO gegen Libyen geht mit voller Wucht weiter

Planned Peacekeeper Occupation of Libya
by Stephen Lendman


September 17, 2011 – The peacekeepers are coming! The peacekeepers are coming! War, mass killing and destruction continue, but they’re coming! In fact, paramilitaries are coming to kill and terrorize Libyans wanting liberation, not occupation. A blind eye won’t notice mass rapes and sex trafficking, as well as other atrocities and crimes. They’re commonplace, in fact, when Blue Helmets show up, operating as they please with impunity. More on that below. Moreover, when they come they don’t leave as long as imperial powers want them there. Citizens of occupied countries have no say nor any rights. Their choice is obey or else…

September 17, 2011 – According to NATO’s own figures, Sirte has been bombed with 340 „key hits“ from 25th August to 16th September. (we have been tracking the official NATO numbers in War: what is it good for – absolutely nothing.) According to the NATO operational update for 16th September: Key Hits 16 SEPTEMBER: In the vicinity of Sirte: 5 Command and Controle Nodes, 3 Radar Systems, 4 Armed Vehicles, 8 Air Missile Systems.…It has not been released how many tons of bombs the NATO bombers have dropped in the vicinity of Sirte during this conflict, but it probably exceeds the 40 tons dropped by the Condor Legion on Guernica. The League of Nations was entirely ineffective in defending civilian areas from being bombed during the Spanish Civil War and it remains to be seen if the United Nations will prove any better in this conflict….

Der NATO Angriff Krieg, gegen Beduinen Staemme in Libyen geht weiter


Der räuberische Angriffskrieg der Nord-Atlantischen Terror-Organisation NATO gegen Libyen geht trotz erbitterten Widerstandes eines großen Teiles der libyschen Bevölkerung mit voller Wucht weiter. Während die NATO stolz verkündete, sie habe am Sonntag 44 Bombenangriffe gegen Libyen geflogen, setzten die rassistischen NTC-Mörderbanden, die die NATO in Libyen als Bodentruppen einsetzt, ihre mörderischen Sturmangriffe auf die Bewohner der Städte Bani Walid und Sirt verbissen fort. Den Bewohnern der Städte gelang es jedoch, die Eroberung ihrer Städte durch die NATO-Mörderbanden zu verhindern, und am Freitag, Samstag und Sonntag die Angriffswellen der NATO-Lakaien jeweils zurückzuschlagen.

Media Report Claims 12 Serbs Killed in Libya

A Croatian media report has alleged that representatives of the new Libyan regime have claimed responsibility for killing 12 Serbian and nine Croatians apparently accused of being mercenaries fighting with Muammar Gaddafi’s forces.

Two weeks ago, Innercitypress leaked a secret UN plan written by British NATO imperialist Ian Martin wrote, outlining that the criminals against peace want to send hundreds of UN employees to Libya as well as security personnel to guard them with the aim of establishing a colonial government in UN garb subserviant to the predatory aggressor states bombing Libya.

Vor zwei Wochen hat Innercitypress einen vom britischen NATO-Imperialisten Ian Martin verfassten Geheimplan der UNO geleakt, demzufolge die UNO einige Hundert Mitarbeiter zum Aufbau einer Regierung nach dem Geschmack der räuberischen Angriffskrieger sowie Sicherheitspersonal für die Bewachung dieser im UN-Gewand daherkommenden Kolonialregierung nach Libyen schicken will.

Pleite Banken, welche durch die NATO Zerstörung und Krieg mit Libyen saniert werden


Milliarden hatten die reichen Libyische Fonds, in System relevanten Europäischen Banken geparkt, wobei man praktisch der Eigentümer der UniCredit in Italien war, einer System relvanten Bank, welche die HypoVereinsbank schon kaufte, weil man den Immobilien Schrott der Bayerischen Betrugs Banker der Bayerischen Hypotheken und Wechsel Bank sanieren musste.

400 Milliarden € des Libyischen Staaten wurden vor allem auf Französichen und Italienischen Banken gestohlen. update Anfang 2015

Und dann können die Mafia Banken, auch noch ihre faulen Kredite für Pleite Firmen sanieren, denn es gibt Milliarden zuverdienen im Wieder Aufbau, wo die dümmsten Entwicklungsfirmen als Consults  tätig sind und die kriminellsten Bestechungsfirmen, angefangen von Mercedes, Siemens, VW, Thyssen und Telekom. Bomben Geschäfte.

Man braucht dann nur noch Kriminelle als Regierung zuinstallieren, wie in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Irak, Georgien, Palästina oder Albanien.

NATO hat Zerstörungsziel im Krieg gegen Libyen erreicht

von Redaktion @ 14:53. abgelegt unter Krieg, Libyen, NATO

Wie der staatliche US-Propaganda-Sender “Voice of America” gestern stolz bekanntgab, glaubt die Nord-Atlantische Terror-Organisation NATO nach der Rettung der systemrelevanten italienischen UniCredit Bank durch die Beschlagnahme libyschen Auslandsvermögens ein weiteres wichtiges Ziel mit ihrem verbrecherischen Angriffskrieg gegen Libyen erreicht zu haben.

Der US-Propagandaender erklärte, dass die libysche Regierung unter Muammar Gaddafi viel Geld in Afrika investiert habe und einer der größten finanziellen Unterstützer der Afrikanischen Union und der Afrikanischen Entwicklungsbank gewesen sei. J. Peter Pham, Direktor vom Africa Center des mit dem US-Terrorstaat eng verbundendenen Atlantic Council in Washington wurde von dem US-Propagandasender dahingehend zitiert, dass Libyen das Geld nun zu Hause benötige, um die von der NATO mit ihren Bomben angerichteten Kriegsschäden zu reparieren und Libyen deshalb dazu gezwungen sei, einen Großteil des in Afrika investierten Vermögens in die Heimat zurückzuholen.

Wie der nicht zur US-Kriegsmaschinerie Professor Jean-Paul Pougala im April erklärte, war es eines der wichtigsten Kriegsziele der NATO, von Libyen vorangetriebene Projekte wie den African Monetary Fund, den African Investment Fund und die African Investment Bank ihrer Finanzmittel zu berauben und dadurch die Aufrechterhaltung der Herrschaft des Neokolonialismus in Afrika durch Instrumente wie die Weltbank, den IWF und den CFA-Franc zu sichern.

Um dieses Kriegsziel zu erreichen, war es für die NATO nicht wichtig, den Krieg zu gewinnen, sondern nur möglichst viel in Libyen zu zerstören. Und genau das hat die NATO getan, von der Bombardierung des Röhrensystems des Great Man Made River, über die Bombardierung der Fabrik für Ersatzröhren bis hin zu Ministerien, Krankenhäusern und Wohnungen hat die NATO mit ihren Bomben so viel zerstört, dass selbst das NATO-Terror-Council NTC schätzt, der Wiederaufbau Libyens werde 10 Jahre dauern. Die von Libyen für die Entwicklung Afrikas vorgesehenen Finanzmittel sollen damit an Unternehmen der NATO-Terrorstaaten gehen.

Diese scharren, wie das bei der deutschen Propaganda-Schau zu besichtigen ist, bereits jetzt mit den Füßen, um sich die besten Filetstücke aus Libyen herauszuschneiden, obwohl der Krieg gegen Libyen gerade erst in seine zweite Phase getreten ist. Wie der Leader des Green Committees Movement mit den Worten “Afghanistan ist nun mit uns, Irak ist mit uns, Venezuela ist mit uns” erklärte, haben die NATO-Terroristen den Krieg gegen Libyen noch lange nicht gewonnen.

Libya Revolt Helped Stop Italy Bank Collapse

5:20pm UK, Tuesday August 23, 2011

Ed Conway, economics editor

Trade in shares of Italy’s largest bank has been suspended – as it emerges that events in Libya have helped prevent a collapse of the Italian banking system.

Unicredit logo on bank in MilanUniCredit’s share price tumbled as a solution for eurozone debt appeared distant

UniCredit’s share price has plunged in the past month because of market fears over eurozone debt – and now share dealing has been halted due to volatility.

Although it may sound far-fetched, the Libyan revolution of the past six months may have saved it and other Italian banks amid the crisis.

The tale of Libya and its Italian bank investment adventure underlines just how far the Gaddafi clan’s influence reached in financial markets throughout the world.

Libya’s wealth comprised a range of assets, including gold, oil and sovereign wealth fund investments.

Libyan Central Bank branch in TripoliThe Libyan Central Bank was one of three Libyan sovereign wealth funds

Just how much of these are returned to any future government remains to be seen – but if you look at the extensive investments in Italy, you can find a prime example of where the Libyans have already lost out.

According to documents uncovered by Global Witness, the Libyan Investment Authority’s biggest investment was in Italian bank Unicredit.

The choice is not accidental – Italy was Libya’s colonial parent, the legacy of which is extensive financial and political connections.

Through three of its sovereign wealth funds – the LIA (the most above-board), the Central Bank of Libya and the Libya Foreign Bank (these two were able to invest slightly more secretively) – the regime amassed some 1.4 billion shares in UniCredit.

The Libyan sovereign funds brought their investment in the Italian bank to their current level in early 2010.

Italian bank traderItalian banks saw a selling wave earlier this month – but Libya’s stake was frozen

Then the second wave of the financial crisis struck, just as the Libyan investments were frozen throughout Europe, preventing Tripoli’s investment officers from pulling out their cash.

In February, the combined stake was worth 2.8bn euros. Today, it is worth a mere 1.2bn euros.

That is a collapse of almost 60% – and the fall is sharper still if you go back to early 2010, when the investments reached their current volume.

Had the Libyan assets not been frozen, one suspects the Gaddafi family might have sold their Unicredit investment, whether because of the bank’s deep troubles or because of their need to free up resources for their fight against rebels.

However, the upshot of the freeze was that Unicredit (which, when the European authorities performed stress tests on their banks had one of the worst balance sheets in the area) was able to rely on its biggest aggregate shareholder not selling its stake and pushing its share price down further.

It is impossible to know how much impact this had on the Italian bank – even a 7.2% stake cannot prevent the remaining 92.8% of shareholders selling out if they so choose.

But the unintended consequence was at least a small relief for the Italian bank as it battled the second wave of the financial crisis. Not to mention a crippling loss for the Libyan sovereign wealth funds.
