Betty observed:



It's "under investigation."

Which usually means, "Let's stall until the press loses interest."

Reality: The press lost interest long ago.

Another American who should have been somewhere else, not being used to continue the never-ending Iraq War -- a war that his 14 years next month.

14 years.

And Barack swore he would end it.

Liar.

He's a War Criminal and so is Bully Boy Bush.



Mike Glenn (HOUSTON CHRONICLE) notes, "Odiorne was originally from Ware, Mass. - about 80 miles west of Boston. He joined the Army in October 2015 and had been at Ford Hood since May 2016."  Anthony Fay and Hayley Crombleholme (WWLP) report, "Since May, Odiorone had been assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, and 1st Cavalry Division out of Fort Hood, Texas. He entered active-duty service as a cannon crewmember in 2015."





Honoring PFC Brian P Odiorne, died Feb 20, 2017 in Iraq. Honor him so he is not forgotten.







Brandon Gray (KCEN) reports on the passing, Samara Abramson (WESTERN MASS NEWS) speaks with those who knes Odiorne:

Odiorne's loved ones said that he stayed in touch with them even when he was busy.
"Even if we didn't get to talk until the next day, we'll make sure that we at least keep in touch, like 'Hey, I'm okay, I'm letting you know I'm safe'," [Kelsie] Delisle added.
Delisle spoke to Odiorne on the phone every night, including Sunday - the night before he died.
"We'd always tell each other every night, when we hung up, that we missed each other and we loved each other and I'll talk to you tomorrow," Delisle explained.
That's what they told each other Sunday night, but Delisle found out about her close friend's death Monday morning after reading a post on Facebook.
"I don't know what to do and I have not stopped crying since then because it feels like I lost a part of me," Delisle said.

Patrick Johnson (MASS LIVE) notes rememberances of Brian Odiorone on social media including this from Brianna Woodman:



I can't believe what I'm hearing... I had just received a message from you the other day asking to check up on your grandmother for you every now and then since you can't always talk to her. I promise I will visit her. This is just so surreal. You were such a kind, gentle, caring person who's heart was as big as your smile. Thank you for serving our country, RIP Brian Odiorne, you'll be missed and never forgotten.


And he notes  Molly Przybyla:

I lost the most incredible man I have ever met. Brian made me who I am today, he broke me out of my shell, and helped me be more confident and out going and I didn't get the chance to tell him that he is the love of my love, the one I was supposed to end up with. We were supposed to get back together but at least I know how he felt about me, told me he never stoped loving me, and I told him I loved him too. I will never forget him, I will always hold him in my heart forever... and noone can ever replace that he's my soul mate and his family will always be my family. I am so sorry, you guys always where there for me and I love you guys and I love you 




That's about all from the western press.

    Well if an anonymous source said it . . .

    BULLY BOY PRESS &  CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE





    THE SAME CIA SOURCE TELLS THESE REPORTERS THAT PAUL KRUGMAN WAS A BED WETTER UNTIL THE AGE OF 49 AND STILL WETS HIS PANTS TO THIS DAY.

    SOURCE STATES THAT KRUGMAN WAS SEEING  PICKING IN HIS NOSE IN HIS NEIGHBORHOOD MCDONALDS AND WAS JUST ABOUT TO WIPE THE BUGGER ON THE WALL WHEN HE STARTED PEEING HIS DRAWERS.

    AS THE URINE SPOT BECAME APPARENT ON HIS PANTS, KRUGMAN IS SAID TO HAVE SCREAMED, "I'M A BIG BOY! I'M A BIG BOY!  I'M NOT WHIZZING! I'M A BIG BOY!"

    THE SOURCE INSISTS PAUL KRUGMAN THEN BEGAN SHOVING MICKY DEE FRIES DOWN THE FRONT OF HIS PANTS BEFORE CROUCHING ON THE GROUND AND BARKING REPEATEDLY.


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:




    I was having a debate with a friend last night on the phone that turned into an argument.

    She's an actress who can't stop her nonsense Tweets about Donald Trump being evil and the Democrats being salvation.

    Is Donald Trump evil?

    He may or may not be.  Time will tell.

    Are Democrats the salvation?

    No.

    And she was raised in a Socialist family.

    And we both used to listen to Gore Vidal go on (constantly) about the boiled frog.

    Gore was right.

    The Democrats are not the answer.

    Could they be?

    Maybe if they were pushed.

    Susan Sarandon's pushing them.  Which is why hacks like Debra Messing get so angry.

    Everyone should be pushing them.

    No, you don't have a right to our votes.

    You earn them.

    And if the Democratic Party wants our votes, it damn well better try to earn those votes.

    The country doesn't need pretty words, it needs action.

    It needs jobs.

    Real jobs.

    If all your money goes to rent and food, you're not making a living and we need to stop kidding otherwise.

    Alyssa, my friend and I live very fortunate lives.

    We need to be aware that many others are not so fortunate.

    These are the people the Democratic Party has abandoned -- a party that can't even publicly mention the poor, a party that should have declared one of their so-called wars on the issue of the homeless long ago.  If 10% of what's been spent on the 'war on drugs' in any year was spent on addressing the homeless, the people would be better off.

    The Democratic Party has joined the corporations in fleecing the American people.

    That's not going to turn out any votes.

    And Alyssa and others can tell themselves they're so damn superior to Trump or whomever because they say the right things but words don't keep a roof over your head or food on your table (unless you're a paid writer).

    The Democrats need to be pressed to earn votes.

    They don't need to be defended.

    They have lined their pockets with corporate donations.  Nancy Pelosi is a lousy leader but gets to hold on (for now) because she brings in so much corporate cash to each election cycle.

    The party's entirely about greed.

    I doubt that will change.

    But you can pressure them to make concessions to We The People.

    And you don't do that by castigating Susan Sarandon.

    You do that by saying more people are going to walk -- like Susan -- if you don't start addressing the basic needs, the reason political parties exist, which is jobs.  You're going to keep losing if you can't defend the safety net -- which needs to be increased, not gutted.

    Honey Pot David Corn

     BULLY BOY PRESS &  CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

    1. Very good point from a former CIA officer.



    CIA HONEY POT DAVID CORN HAS TAKEN EVERY POINT HE EVER COULD FROM THE CIA -- IN EVERY ORIFICE THE GOOD LORD GAVE HIM.

    SAYS CORN NUTS TODAY, "IT WAS MY EARLY ADOLESCENT AFFAIR WITH ALLEN DULLES THAT POSITIONED ME -- ON ALL FOURS -- TO BE SO RECEPTIVE TO CIA LEAKS -- THAT AND THE FACT THAT ALLEN, WHO ALWAYS MADE ME CALL HIM BIG POPPA, DIDN'T BELIEVE IN RUBBERS.  AS THE YEARS PASSED, I LEAKED SO MUCH MY CODE NAME BECAME STRETCHED OUT SPHINCTER.  AND I HAVE TO SAY, JAMES WOOLSEY WAS A REAL TIGER IN THE SHEETS.  WE BARELY HAD TIME TO PLOT MY TAKE DOWN OF REAL JOURNALIST GARY WEBB.  BUT POUND FOR POUND -- AND I DO MEAN "POUND" -- THE BEST HAS BEEN MICHAEL MORELL.  HE WAS THE FIRST LOVER I'VE HAD TO INCORPORATE MY 6 FOOT, STUFFED HELLO KITTY DOLL INTO SEX PLAY."






    FROM THE TCI WIRE:

    Yet again, the neoliberals are out for war and eager to send other people's children off to die.  The Center For Progress is getting it's war on as we noted in Wednesday's snapshot.  And then there's Zaid Al-Ali.

    He did such a bang up job working in Iraq (that's sarcasm) that he's decided he's an expert.


    He has an insipid column that was apparently too pathetic for even THE GUARDIAN to run so he took to ALJAZEERA.  Here's a typical passage:

    Analysts and commentators in various parts of the world claimed that Mosul's population took sides in the conflict, throwing their lot in with ISIL. A video was widely circulated on social media, supposedly showing Mosul's inhabitants stoning Iraqi army vehicles on their way out of the city - never mind that the video was actually from Sadr City in 2008.



    Second sentence first: Social media is global.  Not everyone speaks or reads Arabic.  It is very easy for a posted video to be shared with unintentional misrepresentations on social media.  I really have no idea what point the idiot thought he was making with that.

    The first sentence?

    It's a paragraph in a September 2015 column by Joost Hiltermann of the International Crisis Group.

    A word on the International Crisis Group.  Early on, we were asked to note them by someone inhouse there and I blew it off.  We ignored them for probably the first three years.  As coverage on Iraq in the west continued to dwindle, we began to cite them.

    In a perfect world, we probably would never have.  Their larger goals are in conflict with my own concepts of peace.  So I'm not a fan.

    I know Joost only through his public writing.

    Here's what he wrote in September 2015:


    In Iraq, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s autocratic tendencies and sectarian-imbued repressive policies further alienated a Sunni population that, as soon as the opportunity presented itself, threw in its lot with the Islamic State (IS), despite the latter’s brutal rule. Iran could have acted to moderate Maliki’s behavior but neglected to do so, content that a friendly Shi’ite Islamist coalition ruled a neighbor that, barely a generation ago, had launched a destructive eight-year war against it. The Iraqi army’s collapse in the face of Islamic State’s advance in June 2014 created a security vacuum that Iranian military advisers have tried to fill by commanding urgently mobilized Iraqi Shiite militias. But what will the proliferation of such militias do for the unity of the Iraqi state, which Iran claims to want to preserve? The country’s breakup into warring fiefdoms is now a more likely scenario.


    That's paragraph ten of a 21 paragraph column.

    Iraq is not his focus in that column.

    From his other writing does he believe the Sunni population in Iraq acts in unison?

    No.

    From his other non-Iraq writing, does he believe any group of people act in unison 100%?

    No.

    He was writing on another topic, Iran, and he did a short cut.

    It happens.

    I do short cuts here and hear about it.  "You say THE NEW YORK TIMES reported in September of 2012 that Barack Obama sent Special-Ops back into Iraq but there's no link because it didn't happen!"

    No, there's no link because I'm not here to spoon feed you.

    Check it out, we've linked to that report over 570 times since it first ran.

    Here's one random example:

    There's the fact that Barack sent a brigade of Special-Ops in during the fall of 2012. Tim Arango (New York Times) reported, "Iraq and the United States are negotiating an agreement that could result in the return of small units of American soldiers to Iraq on training missions. At the request of the Iraqi government, according to General Caslen, a unit of Army Special Operations soldiers was recently deployed to Iraq to advise on counterterrorism and help with intelligence." 


    So after 570 times linking to it when I'm mentioning it in passing to make another point I'm still required to link to it?  A five year old article that was outright ignored in real time but that we covered in real time and that we have linked to over 570 times since?

    Sorry, I don't have that time or kind of space.

    Joost took a short cut because he wasn't writing about Iraq.


    Joost took a shortcut.

    Zaid Al-Ali lies outright which is a wrong.

    Yes, there are Sunnis who support the Islamic State -- Sunnis in Iraq.

    Sorry, that's reality.  If you can't deal with it, stick with lying, Zaid Al-Ali.

    The majority position of Sunnis in Iraq as the Islamic State began rising was: It's not my fight.

    That was conveyed in social media as well as in strong journalism done by NPR and other outlets.

    The Sunnis were being persecuted by Nouri al-Maliki.

    The Islamic State rises up in response to Nouri.

    Nouri had made clear that Sunnis were not part of his vision of Iraq.

    It wasn't their fight.

    There were some Sunni Iraqis who were against the Islamic State.  They were quoted in real media early on.  They saw it as a foreign effort (the Islamic State) and read it as an incursion in the way Iraqis see Iran's attempts to expand their border (I'm referring to cartography here, not political influence -- though it doesn't get much western media attention, Iran is frequently seen as attempting to redraw the actual border it shares with Iraq).

    There were some Sunni Iraqis who were horrified by what they knew of the Islamic State and were against them for that reason.

    But there were some who supported them.

    And you have to remember when they rose up -- it's not a fact that the western media ever gets correct because it would require them confessing to their own failure.

    Iraqis had been peacefully protesting for over a year -- demonstrations and sit-ins.

    And the western media that built up the Eygpt protests as the great change in the world (didn't turn out that way, did it?) ignored the protests in Iraq.

    Ignored it as Nouri used the Iraqi forces to attack the protesters.

    Ignored it as Nouri used the Iraqi forces to attack journalists covering the protests.

    Ignored it as Nouri used the Iraqi forces to kill the protesters.

    As this became the reality and Nouri began threatening the peaceful protesters blocking the road between Baghdad and Falluja, as he began calling them terrorists and speaking (publicly) of setting them on fire, that's when the Islamic State goes public.

    They are the black garbed figures that show up with guns to protect those protesters.

    In their earliest public form, that's what they were -- defenders of the Sunni population who protected the peaceful Sunni protesters.

    And they did protect them.

    Nouri didn't kill them on that road the way he did elsewhere.

    That's reality.

    And that's why there were some Sunnis who saw them in a better light.

    That probably would have continued for some if the Islamic State had not decided it should take and hold areas.

    Once it did that, it was not just extremely fundamental, it was also corrupt.

    Schumer fools them all

    BULLY BOY PRESS &   CEDRIC'S BIG MIX -- THE KOOL AID TABLE

    I agree 100% we need to look into all deleted emails that have to do with National Security. Let's start with


    CHUCKLES SCHUMER IS LAUGHING AT ALL THE TURMOIL.

    "I PRETEND TO HATE REPUBLICANS," HE EXPLAINED TO THESE REPORTERS.  "BUT I VOTE WITH THEM ALL THE TIME ON REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF -- LIKE THE IRAQ WAR.  I ALSO HATE PALESTINIANS.  THESE ARE REAL GOOD TIMES FOR ME.  INSTEAD OF BEING CALLED OUT FOR MY REACTIONARY POSITIONS, EVEN A LEFTIST DEMOCRAT RUSHES TO APPLAUD ME."


    FROM THE TCI WIRE:



    Truth tellers are rare in the world.

    They are even more rare when it comes to truth telling re: Iraq.


    Moonnar27 has been a truth teller.  (Here's a Tweet we included here last January by Moonnar27.)




  • فقط انسخو هذا الهشتاق الانكليزي وارفقوا معه صور وفديوات جرائم الجيش الشيعي بالعراق اوصلوا صوتنا للعالم بكل الطرق لاتسكتوا





    Her truths have been brave and important.

    She has been off Twitter for over two weeks now -- her account killed.

    As the silence continues, people are worrying.



    Does anybody know @moonnor27 personally? Her life may be in danger. People have been trying to contact her phone & there's no response...





    Hayder al-Abadi is watered down Nouri al-Maliki.

    It wouldn't be at all surprising if Hayder sought out to silence her.

    Even less surprising if some Shi'ite militia did so.

    Moonnor27 may have just gotten sick of Tweeting.

    I'm sure the awful news she sees wears on her more than any of us could guess.

    But we're opening with this concern because there is good reason to worry and she's someone we have long noted.



    in the absence of @moonnor27 we remain vigilant for 4 all suffering from tyranny by & ignorence of the west


    Apparently once again sister @moonnor27 account appears to have been disabled




    An Iraqi activist goes silent.

    Her Twitter account is (again) killed.

    Where's the global interest if not concern?
