In response to the escalating chaos in the Middle East as a result of U.S. foreign policy, the Obama administration and the neo-conservative wing of the Republican Party are pushing for still more war and further foreign interventionism.
Representative Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) has offered a bill that would deny the CIA control over armed drones.
The Department of Homeland Security released a statement from DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson on July 2 stating: “I have directed TSA to implement enhanced security measures in the coming days at certain overseas airports with direct flights to the United States.”
U.S. media coverage of Red Chinese millionaire Chen Guangbiao’s fancy feast for New York City’s homeless, studiously ignored his ties to China’s Communist Party and the CCP’s adherence to Lenin’s strategic New Economic Policy (NEP).
Under the guise of beating back Sunni jihadists in Iraq who are benefiting from Obama’s “regime-change” policies in Syria, the administration is openly considering U.S. military cooperation with the Iranian regime to prop up Tehran’s ally in Baghdad. Neoconservative U.S. lawmakers are pushing the prospect, too. Ironically, perhaps, the Assad regime’s Syrian war planes, using intelligence supplied by Iran, have been pounding the hardline Sunni Islamist forces that seized control over wide swaths of Iraq in recent days. In other words, U.S. foreign policy in Iraq is now aligned with the regimes in Syria and Iran — the same officially listed “state sponsors of terror” that the Washington, D.C., establishment has been seeking to overthrow for years as part of the “axis of evil.”
While many questions remain unanswered surrounding the reported kidnapping of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, one crucial fact overlooked by the establishment media is not debatable: The Taliban-aligned Haqqani network that held him is closely linked with the Pakistani government’s intelligence agency, which in turn has been a close ally of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Indeed, the Islamist terror group has at various points been openly supported by the CIA and Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence since it was founded with U.S. government backing in the mid-1970s — and top American officials know it.
