The Biggest Terrorism Scaremongers Are THEMSELVES the Ones Promoting Terrorism

The Media Needs to Point Out the Hypocrisy of These Blowhards

In response to the revelation that the NSA spies on Congress, Congressman Peter King says that the NSA should spy on Congress, to make sure congress members don’t call Al Qaeda.

King is a fine one to talk … he supported the Irish Republican Army for decades, even though the IRA was designated as a terrorist group.

The heads of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees – Diane Feinstein and Mike Rogers – are always yelling ooga booga … saying that the terrorists will get us if we don’t let the NSA spy on all Americans.

Feinstein and Rogers both support Al Qaeda terrorists in Syria.  Rogers supports torture, which has been recognized for thousands of years as a form of terrorism (torture also creates new terrorists.)  And Rogers supports the widespread drone war, even though indiscriminate drone strikes are war crimes – more here and here – oh, and they create more terrorists.

Another leading scaremonger is former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden, who has compared privacy advocates with terrorists. Hayden was one of the main supporters of the torture program, and of the “signature strike” drone assassination program, where strikes are launched purely on the behavior of ground vehicles, with no further evidence of connection to terrorism. Hayden also supported the MEK terrorist group (more on MEK below).

This type of hypocrisy has been going on for some time. We noted in 2011:

The biggest scaremongers regarding the threat from terrorism are themselves promoting terrorism.

Don’t believe me?

Well, Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh says that the Bush administration (and especially Dick Cheney) helped to fund groups which the U.S. claims are terrorists (see confirming articles here and here).

And as the New York Times, Washington Post and others are reporting, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former national security adviser Fran Townsend and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey – who all said that the terrorists were going to get us if we didn’t jettison the liberties granted under the Bill of Rights – are now supporting terrorists in Iran.

If you’ve forgotten how shrill these folks were, here’s some background on Giulani (and see this), Ridge, Townsend and Mukasey (and see this and this).

As Raw Story reports today:

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former national security adviser Fran Townsend and former Attorney General Michael Mukasey all attended a forum organized by supporters of Mujaheddin-e Khalq (MEK).

The MEK is a communist group that helped Saddam Hussein carry out attacks against Iraq’s Shiite population in the 1990s. The group attacked Americans in Iran in the 1980s and helped with the 1979 takeover of the US embassy in Tehran.

The US designated the MEK a foreign terrorist organization in January 2009.

Sadly, the U.S. has actually become the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism … but the hypocritical fearmonger blowhards who promote such terror only call it terrorism when the other guy does it.

    The ones shouting loudest about terrorism are themselves committing terrorist acts, like torture. I guess it is true that you become that which you hate. This is now 2014 and our suppressed collective memories are failing to connect the dots. Remember October 2001? Mere weeks after 9/11 and the congress hastily presented, and magically passed a 342 page bill called they Patriot Act. This expeditiously written bill (perhaps before 9/11), remarkably or unremarkably, no congressman actually read. Now consider that Al Qaeda in its conception was the name of a database created by the CIA (fact). Now consider that, according to Seymour Hersch , the story of Osama Bin Laden’s death was made from whole cloth, and what do you have? Lies upon lies upon lies, so thick a shovel won’t get to the truth. Neither will a bull—dozer. Is it not clear to everyone reading this that your perception of the truth is totally toyed with by the military-corporate-intelligence-media industrial complex? Wake up sheeple.

    Good article. I applaud the author. I do have an abiding faith that all these criminals in high places will get theirs, though. I’ve seen it happen so much and so often that I would be afraid to lie, thieve and otherwise cheat in such a manner for fear of nature eventually getting the best of me and bringing me low, as in, “how low can you go?” Real Justice is a real bitch and I’m so afraid of it that I treat even my two little DOGS as if they were people. I let them walk all over me. I am a believer in justice for ALL things, and in my universe, this how it is and how I believe it should be. If one doesn’t dig it, then one simply must remove from my universe and find a universe of one’s own that doesn’t have me in it. Good luck on that. Ha, ha, ha. .

    Off topic here, sorry, but why has the story:
    http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/08/fukushima-radiation-highest-ever-exceeding-capacity-of-measuring-device-fuel-likely-leaking-out-of-containment-vessel.html

    completely disappeared from your blog pages. I shared this link on my FB page yesterday, and today it is not available or the link has stopped working. Have the Japanese gov. and/or the US gov swooped in and suppressed this and other stories you had up? Or something simple like your servers have been overloaded w/ traffic?

    • Ariel

      The story was titled “Fukushima-radiation-highest-ever-exceeding-capacity-of-measuring-device-fuel-likely-leaking-out-of-containment-vessel”. All links to it lead to a page w/ links to other Fuku stories and some of those links lead to blank pages. What is up??

        Nuthin to see here.
