Get the Truth
-by Lesley Hughes
Last week Canada revealed itself once again as a truly unique nation. In a world where dead warriors are commonplace and taken for granted, this country stopped, paid attention, lowered the flags and gave full military honours to four soldiers, who died inexplicably and tragically at the hands of our allies.
We all felt the shock and the sorrow. The corporate media, privately owned newspapers, television and radio chains lingered especially on the pain and dignity of their survivors.
This was hard to swallow, coming from the same media that, in a fit of Me-Too-ism, couldn't wait to send young Canadians into a war on terrorism, which they hardly bothered to investigate; the same media that show every willingness to sacrifice more lives and families without pausing to confront the most basic question Canadians want answered about Afghanistan. What, exactly, are we doing there?
Truth may have been the casualty of war in former ages, but this war is different. While major media busy themselves waving flags, a global network of independent journalists, who have no interests to protect, no secrets to hide, are tracking and documenting its development on a daily basis.
Among the best: the Web site The Emperor's New Clothes (www.tenc.net) and Mike Ruppert, editor and publisher of From the Wilderness newsletter out of California (www.copvcia.com) .
Using and sharing only published and sourced news stories from world media, and official documents of various governments either leaked or available under freedom of information acts, these journalists have assembled a disturbing picture, which suggests CIA foreknowledge and complicity of highly placed officials in the U.S. government around the attacks on the World Trade Center Sept. 11.
Many official sources are claiming to have warned the American intelligence community, which spends $30 billion a year gathering information, about the attacks on the twin towers on that heartbreaking day.
German Intelligence (BND) claims to have warned the U.S. last June, the Israeli Mossad and Russian Intelligence in August. Israeli businesses, which had offices in the Towers, vacated the premises a week before the attacks, breaking their lease to do it. About 3000 Americans working there were not so lucky.
Ironically, the stock market was also warning anyone who cared to notice that something peculiar was afoot: in the week prior to Sept. 11, unknown speculator(s) were suddenly betting that the stocks of United Airlines and American Airlines were going to fall in value; the trades were placed through Deutschebank/AB Brown, a firm formerly managed by Buzzy-Krongard, now executive director of the CIA.
So far, no one has been bold enough to claim $2.5 million in profits. No serious search for the speculator is under way.
More important to Canadians, the facts uncovered by Internet journalism suggest that the war in Afghanistan has little to do with the attacks of Sept.11; that it's the result of lengthy failed negotiations between American businessmen and the Taliban over access to drugs and oil.
Mike Ruppert, a former LAPD narcotics officer turned journalist, maintains that Wall Street, (from whom the CIA gets its strategists and directions) is heavily dependent on laundered drug money, which helps keep the Fortune 500 and the stock market afloat. The IMF recently estimated that about $1.5 trillion goes through the world's banks every year, at least $500 billion of it from drugs.
His documents show that in January, 2001, the Taliban destroyed their opium crops, which normally supply 70 per cent of the world's heroin. In May, the U.S. gave the Taliban $43 Million in mysterious aid. Sept. 11 was a turning point.
The U.S. bombed, invaded, captured the Taliban, and opium farms are now back in business. The Financial Times has reported that the next harvest will be a record breaking 4,500 tonnes, much of it headed to the U.S.A.
Ruppert and others have tracked the progress of an urgent pipeline, which American oilmen have been trying to build through Afghanistan since 1991. They stated publicly that they could not do it without a sympathetic Afghan government in place. Newly installed prime minister Hamid Karzai is a former employee of Unocal Oil.
Negotiations on the Central Asian pipeline resumed in October and an agreement to proceed with it was announced in February.
Ruppert also notes that Osama Bin Laden was treated for his chronic kidney disease at the American Hospital in Dubai last summer. Although wanted for the bombing of two U.S. embassies and eligible for execution by American agents, he flew away undisturbed. The sole coverage of these events in Canada has come from Barrie Zwicker, media critic at Vision TV.
If the work of Internet journalists is correct, then the war is neither a holy war, not a grand clash of civilizations between East and West, and our soldiers were lost to us and to their families to keep drugs and oil profits flowing in the U.S.
Until we know the truth, we should refuse to add one more Canadian body to the pile of dead in Afghanistan. Not one. Canada should get the truth or get out.

welcomes everyone to the event.
Lesley Hughes, MC for the event
Hughes faced intense criticism for a column she wrote in 2002 as a freelance journalist, in which she suggests that Israeli intelligence warned the U.S. in advance of the Sept. 11 attacks and that Israeli businesses vacated the World Trade Center before two passenger planes struck the buildings.
Hughes, a former CBC journalist, also referred readers to websites that assert "CIA foreknowledge and complicity of highly placed officials in the U.S. administration around the attacks on the twin towers."
Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion has asked Winnipeg-area candidate Lesley Hughes to step down over an old column in which she suggested Israeli companies were given a heads-up about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S.
"It's the theatre of the absurd," said Hughes.
"I have no time for conspiracy theories about the Jewish population whatever," she said. "The article that I wrote — for anyone who reads it carefully — is very clearly innocent of any kind of anti-Semitic feeling. I am just absolutely stunned by this.
"I guess that's how soldiers die in the trenches. This is how it must feel."
Since the Sept. 22 nomination deadline has passed, Hughes name will still appear on the ballot and she could technically win, though not under the Liberal banner. Hughes said she hasn't decided yet whether she will continue campaigning.
If former Liberal candidate Lesley Hughes is an antisemite, then George Bush is Mahatma Ghandi, Stephen Harper is Mother Theresa and Stephane Dion is capable of leading Canada.
Of course, none of the above is true. In dumping Hughes, a well respected Winnipeg journalist and social activist, Dion has buckled under the pressure of the pro-Israel lobby and proven himself incapable of developing independent foreign policy for Canada. How else are we to judge a man who accepts the nonsense that any criticism of Israel, no matter how minor, is antisemitic?
The article that cut short Hughes brief career as a Liberal candidate, Get the Truth
, raises a series of questions about the events leading up to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. The sad irony is that the article did not even criticize Israel.
In an online readers poll today, the Winnipeg Free Press asked: “Do you think Liberal leader Stephane Dion was right to turf Lesley Hughes over 9/11 conspiracy writings?” Of the 2,469 readers who have responded to date, 73 percent have said “No.”
Stephane Dione has not done his party any favours in Winnipeg.======== USA MILITARY AIRBASES ==============

What kind of organisation would create a Google Map mash-up identifying the location of every Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine military installation in the US? A map moreover that allows users to zoom in on any military base and examine a detailed satellite image whilst at the same time providing information on the types of planes and squadrons based there.http://blog.wired.com/defense/2008/06/every-military.html
CORONADO, Calif., — The U.S. Navy has decided to spend as much as $600,000 for landscaping and architectural modifications to obscure the fact that one its building complexes looks like a swastika from the air.
The four L-shaped buildings, constructed in the late 1960s, are part of the amphibious base at Coronado and serve as barracks for Seabees. From the ground and from inside nearby buildings, the controversial shape cannot be seen. Nor are there any civilian or military landing patterns that provide such a view to airline passengers.
But once people began looking at satellite images from Google Earth, they started commenting about on blogs and websites about how much the buildings resembled the symbol used by the Nazis.

False flag operations are covert operations
conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy's strategy of tension
.Examples of false flag attacks as pretexts for war
The social critic Gore Vidal
suggests that the mysterious explosion on the USS Maine
in 1898 (which was the pretext for the Spanish-American War
) was not the result of Spanish sabotage but was actually a false flag attack done by the US government (Vidal, 2003).
In the 1931 Mukden incident
, Japanese officers fabricated a pretext for annexing Manchuria by blowing up a section of railway. Six years later, they falsely claimed the kidnapping of one of their soldiers in the Marco Polo Bridge Incident
as an excuse to invade China proper
The Reichstag Fire
of February 27, 1933 has been attributed to the government of the newly elected Adolf Hitler by documents obtained by the Allies after the war and testimony of the Nuremberg Trials
In the Gleiwitz incident
in August 1939, Reinhard Heydrich
made use of fabricated evidence of a Polish attack against Germany to mobilize German public opinion and to fabricate a false justification for a war with Poland
. This, along with other false flag operations in Operation Himmler
would be used to mobilize support from the German population for the start of World War II in Europe
On November 26, 1939 the Soviet Union shelled the village of Mainila
near the Finnish border and forged casualties. The Shelling of Mainila
was cited a justification for the Soviet Union to attack Finland four days later.
In 1953, the U.S. and British-orchestrated Operation Ajax
used "false-flag" and propaganda operations against the democratically elected leader of Iran, Mohammed Mosaddeq
. Information regarding the CIA-sponsored coup d'etat
has been largely declassified and is available in the CIA archives.
In 1954, Israel sponsored an operation against US and UK interests in Cairo aiming to cause trouble between Egypt and the West. This operation, latter dubbed the Lavon Affair
cost Israeli defense minister Pinhas Lavon
his job. Israel (where it is known as "The Unfortunate Affair") finally admitted responsibility in 2005.
The planned, but never executed, 1962 Operation Northwoods
plot by the US Department of Defense
for a war with Cuba involved scenarios such as hijacking a passenger plane and blaming it on Cuba. It was authored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff
, nixed by John F. Kennedy
, came to light through the Freedom of Information Act
and was publicized by James Bamford
The 1964 Gulf of Tonkin Incident
has been accused of being a false flag operation which was conducted by the US Navy, claiming that they were under attack by North Vietnamese gunboats.
officer Aleksey Galkin
, former FSB
officer Alexander Litvinenko
and other whistleblowers from the Russian government and security services have asserted that the 1999 Russian apartment bombings
that precipitated the Second Chechen War
were false flag operations perpetrated by the FSB, the successor organization to the KGB
There are many members of the public as well as some architects and engineers, who contend that the World Trade Centers 1, 2 and 7 collapsed by controlled demolition on September 11th, 2001. Some claim that plane parts might also have planted in the area under construction at the Pentagon, as a false flag operation. See 9/11 conspiracy theories
.Terrorism and false flag operations
During July 1954
, the Israeli
Operation Susannah (later known as the Lavon Affair
) bombed several American
targets in an attempt to frame Egypt
During the Italian strategy of tension
in which several bombings in the 1970s, attributed to far-left organizations, were in fact carried out by far-right organizations cooperating with the Italian secret services (see Operation Gladio
, 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing
, 1972 Peteano attack by Vincenzo Vinciguerra
, 1973 assassination attempt of former Interior Minister Mariano Rumor
, 1980 Bologna massacre
, etc. and various investigations, for example by Guido Salvini
). In France
, the Masada Action and Defense Movement
, supposedly a Zionist
group, was really a neo-fascist terrorist
group which hoped to increase tension between Arabs
False flag tactics were also employed during the Algerian civil war
, starting in the mid-1994. Death squads
composed of DRS(Département du Renseignement et de la Sécurité
) security forces disguised themselves as Islamist terrorists and committed false flag terror attacks. Such groups included the OJAL
(Organisation of Young Free Algerians) or the OSSRA (Secret Organisation for the safeguard of the Algerian Republic). According to Roger Faligot
and Pascal Kropp (1999), the OJAL reminded of "the Organization of the French Algerian Resistance
(ORAF), a group of counter-terrorists created in December 1956 by the DST
(Direction de la Surveillance du Territoire / Territorial Surveillance Directorate) whose mission was to carry out terrorist attacks with the aim of quashing any hopes of political compromise."
The Gulf of Tonkin Incident
was an alleged pair of attacks by naval forces of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (commonly referred to as North Vietnam) against two American destroyers, the USS Maddox
and the USS Turner Joy
. The attacks were alleged to have occurred on 2 August and 4 August 1964 in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Later research, including a report released in 2005 by the National Security Agency
, indicated that the second attack most likely did not occur, but also attempted to dispel the long-standing assumption that members of the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson
had knowingly lied about the nature of the incident.
In a tape recording that surfaced in 2001 President Johnson admits that the incident he used to obtain approval from congress never happened.
The outcome of the incident was the passage by Congress
of the Southeast Asia Resolution (better known as the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution
), which granted Johnson the authority to assist any Southeast Asian
country whose government was considered to be jeopardized by "communist
aggression". The resolution served as Johnson's legal justification for escalating American involvement in the Vietnam Conflict
On the night of Feb. 27, 1933 the Reichstag building was set on fire
. At the urging of Hitler, Hindenburg responded the next day by issuing an emergency decree “for the Protection of the people and the State,” which stated: “Restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press; on the rights of assembly and association; and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications and warrants for house searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.” After 74 years, the question of who actually started the Reichstag fire is still debated. Nevertheless, most historians believe that Nazis were involved either directly or through instigation—what would now be called a false flag operation—in order to blame the communists and garner public support for their programs.
