Terrorist Designations of the al-Nusrah Front as an Alias for al-Qa’ida in Iraq

The Department of State has amended the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and Executive Order (E.O.) 13224 designations of al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI) to include the following new aliases: al-Nusrah Front, Jabhat al-Nusrah, Jabhet al-Nusra, The Victory Front, and Al-Nusrah Front for the People of the Levant. The Department of State previously designated AQI as an FTO under the Immigration and Nationality Act and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under E.O. 13224 on October 15, 2004. The consequences of adding al-Nusrah Front as a new alias for AQI include a prohibition against knowingly providing, or attempting or conspiring to provide, material support or resources to, or engaging in transactions with, al-Nusrah Front, and the freezing of all property and interests in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States or the control of U.S. persons.obama is bush

Deleted Daily Mail Online Article:“US Backed Plan for Chemical Weapon Attack in Syria to Be Blamed on Assad”
In January 29, 2013, Britain’s most popular Daily Newspaper, in its online version published an article titled:

U.S.‘backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime’

A few days later they pulled the article.

What the reason was for the deletion remains unclear. The article was published at this URL: 270219/U-S-planned-launch-chem ical-weapon-attack-Syria-blame -Assad.html

There exists a cached version of the article which can be found here:

See scan of complete deleted article below:

One day later, on January 30, a moderated news board thread was created, which is still online, at Mail Online about that article.“Thread: Syrian WMD False Flag – Are False Flags a way of life now?“

In their initial article Mail Online refers to an article (dated January 28, 2013), that’s where they probably found the information on the leaked e-mail and other documents.

CapitalBay (who published the wrong areal pictures of the school in Sandy Hook), Mail Online, Infowars, Yahoo News India, News Track India,, Philippine Times, Uganda News, LiveLeak, Truth Media TV and others all claim in their mirrored articles that the alleged e-mail from Britam’s David Goulding to Philip Doughty was dated December 25, 2012.

However, at (translated with Google) there also exists another version of the alleged e-mail. There the e-mail is dated December 24, 2012.

You last statement is beyond stupid.

Once our troops are engaged in an invasion & take out the existing government, we just can't pull the plug & leave without putting our troops at risk & creating a worse situation than we stated with. Voting to pay for war costs in not agreeing with the invasion action.

You an idiot.

I know, I know; you big-government hyper-partisans really don't give much of a sht what the Constitution says. If the current government says its "ok", its ok ... as long as its a Republican government in your case.

I mean, you're taking it kinda personal. Seems like only a Catholic would defend such horrific behavior, especially the institutionalization of it. What about your whole "law and order" stance? Church authorities aiding and abetting felons?

So unlike you.

Document: Major resources needed for Obama Africa trip

The first family is making back-to-back stops from June 26 to July 3 in three countries where U.S. officials are providing nearly all the resources,

rather than

depending heavily on local police forces, military authorities or hospitals for assistance.

Africa. Hope they all get stranded there. That's where they need to go anyway and stay. America is tired of these cockroaches.

6/13/2013 4:44 PM EDT
Now we know why Obama closed down the White House tours. He was saving the money for this $100,000,000 boondoggle to Africa.

3:58 PM EDT
He will wave at us with his middle finger as he boards Airforce One. Just as he did during the election season of's on you tube.

Mike ...

I love this trip, it sends the right message. You see WP, Bush didn't go to Africa after totaling up 7 trillion in new debt, with 49 million on food stamps with 12 million on disability, with workforce participation rates at 33 year lows, under the worse post recession recovery in history while claiming sequester was going to kill old people.. Joke is you koolaid drinking fools, 2014 is just around the corner..

I've given up my whole life, lifestyle, livelihood, vacations for the Obama's! All of us should... for he is the King!!!
We must give our lives and fortune for him!!!

3:21 PM EDT
Meanwhile, do you suppose Obongo is giving even $20 a month to support his brother who lives in a one-room hut in Kenya on income of $240 per year? Don't bet on it.

Postings from Sanford: The Trial of Trayvon's Killer, The People's Demand for Justice
Storm Brewing in Sanford
On the day that we arrived, we talked with two men outside a barbershop here in Sanford. One of the men described the situation here—the police harassment and the years of dehumanization faced by Black people.
He talked about the police stopping and
---harassing his white boss for driving him home from work.---
"I'm Black and he's white. <<--<<<
He's in a Black neighborhood, so they assume he's buying drugs, but even when they know he's not, they f***ed with him."
These are the types of stories you hear around here. There is so much still simmering under the surface.
George Zimmerman trial wrap-up, Day 1
Seminole County is a suburb of the Orlando metropolitan area and many in the community are very disturbed by the previous presence of protesters ranging from Black Panthers to White Supremacy groups. Different groups from all forms of agendas have flooded Sanford, Florida (where the shooting happened) and areas all over central Florida.
Famous figures such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are a few celebrities among many who have traveled to this area to voice their opinion. The media circus has caused just about everyone in the area to worry about what is going on and begs the question, "Can George Zimmerman get a fair trial from an impartial jury in Seminole County?" If the defense feels that they cannot find an impartial jury in this area, they may ask the judge for a change of venue to somewhere they can.
Don't they REALIZE ...
THIS IS a "tragedy"
waiting to happen???????
where is 'their dear leader' in ALL this ...
TRYING to "soothe" the nation?

So, when the CIA went to Congress & said that the Benghazi statements made directly following the attacks were accurate based on CIA information at that time, you f*cking right whiners STFU about it?.
"Then-CIA Director David Petraeus objected to the final talking points the Obama administration used after the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, because he wanted to see more details revealed to the public, according to emails released Wednesday by the White House.

Under pressure in the investigation that continues eight months after the attacks, the White House Wednesday released 99 pages of emails and a single page of handwritten notes made by Petraeus' deputy, Mike Morell, after a meeting at the White House on Saturday, Sept. 15. On that page, Morell scratched out from the CIA's early drafts of talking points mentions of al-Qaida, the experience of fighters in Libya, Islamic extremists and a warning to the Cairo embassy on the eve of the attacks of calls for a demonstration and break-in by jihadists.

Petraeus apparently was displeased by the removal of so much of the material his analysts had proposed for release. The talking points were sent to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to prepare her for an appearance on news shows on Sunday, Sept. 16, and also to members of the House Intelligence Committee.
