Nancy Reagan never wanted to see the Bushes again

WMR was told by a longtime national security aide to then-President Ronald Reagan that First Lady Nancy Reagan told White House staff that “I never want to see the Bushes again.” The comment came after Bush family friend John Hinckley attempted to assassinate Reagan on March 30, 1981, some ten weeks after the presidential inauguration. Mrs. Reagan apparently was convinced that Vice President George H W Bush and Second Lady Barbara Bush were somehow connected to the assassination attempt. Continue reading

The U.S. decision to kill more civilians in Iraq and Syria

USA Today reported on April 19th that U.S. air forces bombing Syria and Iraq have been operating under new, looser rules of engagement since last fall. The war commander, Lt Gen McFarland, now orders air strikes that are expected to kill up to 10 civilians without prior approval from U.S. Central Command, and U.S. officials made it clear to USA Today that U.S. air strikes are killing more civilians as a result of the new rules. Continue reading

Monroe Doctrine becomes the Obama Doctrine

Long discredited, the Monroe Doctrine, a policy set forth by President James Monroe that stipulates that the Western Hemisphere is America’s backyard over which it exercises complete tutelage, has been dusted off by Barack Obama. The neo-Monroe Doctrine, which can be called the Obama Doctrine, has seen the Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency, State Department, and the Pentagon actively work to oust progressive leaders from power in Latin America.

New leak at Hanford nuclear waste site is ‘catastrophic,’ worker warns

'This is probably the biggest event ever to happen in tank farm history.'

A leak at the Hanford nuclear site in Washington state has prompted warnings of “catastrophic” consequences, as workers attempt to clean up more than eight inches of toxic waste from one of 28 underground tanks holding radioactive materials leftover from plutonium production. Continue reading

Another victim of the Panama Papers: Pacific self-determination

In yet a further example that the release of the so-called “Panama Papers” furthered the agenda of the United States and its FIVE EYES intelligence allies Australia and New Zealand, there was an immediate condemnation of the role that certain offshore tax haven islands in the Pacific played in the tax avoidance schemes of Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian law firm accused of helping shelter billions of dollars from tax authorities. Continue reading

Truth is the first casualty of war: Nagorno-Karabakh and media misinformation

The Crimean War, in the mid-19th century, introduced the world to the cardigan, the raglan jersey, and the balaclava headdress. It also introduced a new profession: the foreign correspondent. And almost immediately after the war the axiom “truth is the first casualty of war” was born because of the falsehoods spread by foreign correspondents on both sides, not to mention Tennyson’s overheated and wrong-headed poem. Continue reading

It’s not £30,000 in Cameron’s offshore account, it’s at least £2 million

British Prime Minister David Cameron tried to fend off criticism of an offshore trust maintained in the Bahamas by his father Ian Cameron and which he inherited upon his father’s death in 2010. The details of the trust were contained in the massive tranche of documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which were leaked to the media by the dubious International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), an operation funded by George Soros, the CIA-connected U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation. Continue reading

‘Cherry picking’ leaked documents: a CIA art form

The US Central Intelligence Agency, rather than attempt to deter massive leaks of sensitive documents, including classified US government materials, has figured out it is much more advantageous to “cherry pick” certain information and then release it as “major news” to a corporate media eager and willing to run with what they are handed. Such has been the case with the so-called “Panama Papers.“ Continue reading

Managed ‘leak’ targets Western foes, soft peddles right-wingers and American lackeys

The world has experienced leaks like the so-called “Panama Papers” before. A consortium of global corporate media entities are cherry-picking information from a purported leak of 11 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. The list was obtained by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), an NGO financially supported by George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the Central Intelligence Agency-directed U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Continue reading

Fabricated Putin link to leaked Panama Papers

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) calls itself an initiative “focusing on . . . cross-border crime, corruption, and the accountability of power.” Continue reading

Hillary’s email revelation: France and US killed Qaddafi for his gold and oil

Langley’s latest themed revolution: the Yellow Duck Revolution in Brazil

The latest themed revolution concocted by the Central Intelligence Agency’s “soft power” agents in the Brazilian federal and state legislatures, corporate media, and courts and prosecutors’ offices—all spurred on with the financial help of George Soros’s nongovernmental organizations—is the “Yellow Duck Revolution.” Continue reading

The need for “CSO” teams in Russia, Serbia, China, and elsewhere

When a single multi-billionaire controls not only America’s Radio Free Europe/Radio Free Asia/Radio Liberty operations in Munich and Prague and he virtually owns and operates such non-profit non-governmental organizations like Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, national governments targeted by such a menace should take notice and respond aggressively. George Soros will continue to dominate the foreign policy of a Hillary Clinton administration. Soros recently donated $8 million to boost her presidential campaign. Continue reading

New WikiLeaks release exposes ‘most highly classified’ NSA spy ops

New documents published by WikiLeaks on Tuesday reveal more of the U.S. National Security Agency’s (NSA) spying operations on foreign leaders, including its interception of climate talks between UN Secretary General Ban-ki Moon and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Continue reading

Broken Ukraine

I hadn’t even changed money when a guy in a military jacket approached me for a donation for Ukraine’s war efforts, and he was quite persistent too. Continue reading

A swollen river of refugees

Last month, as US border patrol agents began rounding up Central American women and children denied asylum, a small group of international peace activists from Voices for Creative Nonviolence boarded a plane for Helsinki, Finland, to visit two longtime Iraqi friends who fled Baghdad last summer and somehow completed a perilous seven-week journey over land and sea to reach this northern seaport. Negotiating our way from the airport in Helsinki to Laajasalo, a small island and suburb where we were to stay with a Finnish journalist, we crossed a frozen and snow-covered Baltic Sea, as white flakes swirled in the streetlights and the temperature dropped to minus 25 degrees Celsius, a long, long way from Baghdad. Continue reading

Qaddafi’s assassination benefitted AFRICOM and ISIL

After Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi was brutally assassinated on October 20, 2011, by US-supported guerrillas, then-US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gloated about the murder by braying, “we came, we saw, he died.” Continue reading

Homes demolished in the South Hebron Hills

After a breakdown in mediation between the State of Israel and the Palestinian villages of Massafer Yatta, Israeli authorities destroyed 24 homes in the South Hebron Hills. The homes lie within an area which Israel claims as Firing Zone 918, in which approximately 1,000 Palestinian civilians live in 8 villages. Continue reading

The logic of hunger-striking Palestinians: When starvation is a weapon

By Friday, January 29, Palestinian journalist Mohammed al-Qeq had spent 66-days on hunger strike in Israeli jails. Just before he fell into his third coma, a day earlier, he sent a public message through his lawyers, the gist of which was: freedom or death. Continue reading

U.S. troops on scene of two West African hotel attacks may have been involved in African Gladio operation

Acts of staged terrorism appear to be at heart of two recent hotel attacks by so-called Islamist insurgent groups in West Africa. In November, U.S. and French special forces troops, including French “special police” paramilitary personnel, just happened to be on the scene of a terrorist attack on the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, the capital of Mali. After the U.S. and French forces engaged the terrorists who took over the hotel and seized hostages, six Americans were reportedly among those freed. Continue reading

Is Pennsylvania the center of the pedophile mafia?

If the pedophile mafia operating at the highest echelons of the United States government had a central state, it might as well be Pennsylvania. Not only have Republicans and Democrats in the state banded together to unseat Pennsylvania’s first female and Democratic Attorney General, Kathleen Kane, who has been undauntedly persistent in her attempt to rid the state of pedophile enablers, but they have rolled over and permitted convicted former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky to receive a $211,000 check for his withheld state pension from his conviction for child molestation. Six percent interest was added by a state court that ruled the state Pension Forfeiture Act was improperly applied to Sandusky in 2012 after he was convicted of sexually molesting 10 boys. Sandusky’s monthly state pension of $4,900 a month will also resume this month. Continue reading

America was prepared to annihilate Prague, Warsaw, other capitals

Recently declassified nuclear targeting documents from 1959 describe how Washington planned to obliterate the capital cities of what are now America’s NATO allies in Eastern and Central Europe. The revelation casts doubt on Washington’s Cold War commitment to the protection of what it referred to as “captive nations” in Europe. The documents are contained in a report titled, “SAC (Strategic Air Command) Atomic Weapons Requirements Study for 1959.” Continue reading

Hungry warrior: The untold story of Hana Shalabi

Throughout her hunger strike, that of exactly 47 days, Hana Shalabi never slept consistently for a number of hours. In the first few days of her strike, she would doze off only to wake up with the sudden fear that someone was trying to hurt her. Continue reading

NATO nations cooperate in training and recruiting jihadists

Serbian and Russian intelligence operatives in the Balkans have pinpointed Turkish and Albanian government-supported radical mosques that are radicalizing Albanian Muslims from Albania, Kosovo, and Macedonia for the Islamic State (Da’esh) ranks in Syria and Iraq. The use of two NATO nations, Albania and Turkey, in supplying fresh troops for the Islamic State, has strengthened the resolve of Russian President Vladimir Putin to punish the Turkish government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan for its support for the Islamic State and its military actions against Russian and Russian-supported forces in Syria. Continue reading

U.S. visas continue to be handled by foreign contractors

The U.S. State Department, under both presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and current Secretary of State John Kerry, has continued a policy of outsourcing the preparation and acceptance of U.S. visa forms by outside contractors. In fact, the U.S. embassy in Islamabad referenced on its website a “new system” operating worldwide that handles visa applications. Continue reading

Emanuel running scared; White House, Hillary camps alarmed

President Obama and putative Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton held a previously unscheduled and unannounced 90-minute luncheon meeting at the White House on December 7. Although the White House termed the meeting “personal,” WMR learned that chief on their agenda was the political scandal in Chicago surrounding former Obama chief of staff and former Clinton administration White House aide Rahm Emanuel. Obama and Clinton fear that an indictment of Emanuel for covering up the shooting death by Chicago police of an unarmed black teen in order to skate to re-election as mayor could upset Chicago and Illinois politics and harm Clinton’s current lead in the polls. Continue reading

CIA sought Muslim invasion of USSR in 1952

According to its own formerly TOP SECRET Central Intelligence Bulletin, dated December 4, 1952, during the waning days of the Harry Truman administration, the Central Intelligence Agency had embarked on a program to foment nationalism among the Uzbek tribes of Afghanistan in order that it might spill across the border into the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic, a constituent republic of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Continue reading

Air Force Secretary echoes her boss’s war rhetoric

Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington on December 2, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James echoed previous statements from her boss, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, that threw down the gauntlet to Russia over Syria, China over the South China Sea, and any other country that was willing to defy American military objectives. Continue reading

Emanuel throws McCarthy under the bus faster than his Israeli dad bombed them

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, never one to accept responsibility for his actions, tossed Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy under the bus faster than his Israeli father, Irgun terrorist Dr. Benjamin Emanuel, bombed British police buses during the final days of the British mandate of Palestine. Continue reading

In Israel, searching for sanity

The Israeli journalist and TV producer Avi Issacharoff looked around our Tel Aviv meeting room and sighed. “The reality is so complex to understand, it’s so difficult, that for someone who comes from abroad, it’s Mission Impossible,” he said. Continue reading

Prized Singapore

Henoko takes on U.S. imperialism

OKINAWA—Around one hundred and fifty Japanese protesters gathered to stop construction trucks from entering the U.S. base ‘Camp Schwab’, after the Ministry of Land overruled the local governor’s decision to revoke permission for construction plans, criticizing the “mainland-centric” Japanese government of compromising the environmental, health and safety interests of the Islanders.
