THE WHITE HOUSE HAS BEEN LYING ABOUT THAT EX-FBI AGENT MISSING IN IRAN FOR SEVEN YEARS, BOMBSHELL AP REPORT SAYS
“ Robert Levinson went missing during a business trip to Kish Island, Iran,” that’s what the White House said as recently as last month about Robert Levinson, the retired FBI agent who went missing in Iran seven years ago.
In March 2007, Levinson flew to Kish Island, an Iranian resort. Days later after a meeting with an admitted killer, he vanished. For years the U.S. has publicly described him as a private citizen who was traveling on private business. However, an Associated Press investigation reveals that Levinson was working for the CIA. In a breach of the most basic CIA rules, a team of analysts with no authority to run spy operations, paid Levinson to gather information. But even after the White House, FBI and State Department officials learned of Levinson’s CIA ties, the official story remained unchanged. (AP Photo/Levinson Family)
That was a lie, according to a new bombshell Associated Press report.
According to the AP investigation, Levinson was actually on a rogue mission sanctioned by CIA operatives that did not have the power to do so. And the agency paid Levinson’s family millions ($2.5 million, to be exact) to thwart a lawsuit about it. The scandal also led to three veteran analysts being forced out of the agency and seven others being disciplined.
The AP story explains:
In an extraordinary breach of the most basic CIA rules, a team of analysts – with no authority to run spy operations – paid Levinson to gather intelligence from some of the world’s darkest corners. He vanished while investigating the Iranian regime for the U.S. government.”
“ North Korea has executed Kim Jong-un’s uncle as a “traitor for all ages” who confessed to planning a coup, state media has announced.
Jang Song-thaek, previously one of the country’s most powerful men, was accused of everything from plotting to overthrow the state to instigating disastrous currency reforms and dishing out pornography in the report from official news agency KCNA.
It denounced him as “worse than a dog” and “despicable human scum”.
KCNA said a special military tribunal had found him guilty of treason and the Rodong Sinmun newspaper carried a photograph of him handcuffed and held by uniformed guards in the courtroom.
Other offenses cited include halfhearted applause as Kim rose to power and Jang’s “reckless” instruction to security forces to erect a granite block with Kim’s signature in a shaded corner rather than in front of their headquarters.”

” Today in Yemen, 13 people were killed in what was reportedly an erroneous drone strike by the American government. According to Yemeni officials, a caravan was traveling in central Yemen on its way to a wedding when it was hit by missiles fired from a drone, leaving bodies burned and vehicles ablaze in the middle of the road.”

” The Shariah Project, a London-based Muslim group, is to march through Brick Lane on Friday against the drinking and sale of alcohol along the nightlife spot.
Members of the group believe the consumption or selling of alcohol to be “sinful” under Islamic law and should be “strictly prohibited”.
They hope that the rally, scheduled for the afternoon following Friday prayers, will illuminate the ills of alcohol.”
” Thousands of riot police carried out a co-ordinated attack on barricades in Kiev during the dead of night on Wednesday – a determined and unexpected crackdown on protesters who have occupied the centre ofUkraine‘s capital for the past fortnight.
As temperatures fell to -13C (-55F) during the coldest night of the winter to date, columns of riot police closed in on Independence Square, hub of the protests that erupted after President Viktor Yanukovych pulled out of an association pact with the EU that had been due for signing at a summit in Vilnius last month. Shortly after 1am battalions of police approached the vast square from all sides and began to dismantle the makeshift barricades that have been erected in recent days.
Ukraine’s prime minister, Mykola Azarov, said later on Wednesday the operation by police was a question of clearing the roads. “No force will be applied against peaceful protesters. Do you understand this? Calm down!” he said as he opened a government meeting.
Police pulled out of the square on Wednesday morning, even as more protesters arrived. “
A road clearing operation ? Sure … once again we witness Statist violence in the name of “public safety” .
” With the blistering New York Times editorial condemning sanctions efforts underway in Congress (“a breakthrough agreement at risk” falsely implies there is a U.S. -Iran agreement on key points), you know the administration is nervous, very nervous. It seems bipartisan contingents in both the House and Senate are unwilling to be threatened by the totalitarian regime in Tehran, which has threatened to call off the whole deal (which isn’t even a deal) unless the Congress shuts up. It is quite extraordinary — both the Times and the mullahs vilifying Congress’s efforts merely to enforce the terms of U.N. resolutions on Iran’s illegal weapons program.
This is not a partisan affair. Democrats and Republicans are both involved in efforts to stop Iran’s march toward a nuclear arms capability. Both sides are alarmed at a White House running toward appeasement.”
Exhibiting a rare example of spine , Congress refuses to roll over for the appeasers in the White House . Good for them . Good for US.
” A Staten Island woman has sued the city claiming police entered her St. George home without a warrant, beat her family and killed her beloved pet parakeet, according to court documents.
Last year, Evelyn Lugo’s bird, Tito, was thrown from his cage after it was knocked off a dresser as cops came into her Corson Avenue home, the Daily News first reported.
The officers then stepped on the bird intentionally, killing it, court documents say.”

” Over at Cato’s Police Misconduct Reporting Project, we have named the worst case for the month of November. It was the repeated, forced cavity search of two young men—in separate incidents—in New Mexico.
The first victim, David Eckert, was pulled over by police for failing to make a complete stop at a stop sign. After a police K-9 who was uncertified for drug searches indicated the presence of marijuana, the officers told a judge that the victim appeared to be “clenching his buttocks” and requested a body cavity search warrant, which the judge granted. The officers took Eckert to a local hospital and requested that doctors perform the search, but the hospital doctors refused. The cops then took Eckert to a second hospital, in a neighboring county that was not covered by the warrant, where they found doctors willing to perform the search.”
No surprise here . We reported on these horrific events here and here along with a woman in New Mexico that suffered a similar fate .
” Iran has executed 529 people this year, including more 300 since President Hassan Rouhani assumed office in August, according to a tallycompiled by the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC).
Iran now has the dubious honor of being the global leader per capita in executions, according to the IHRDC.”
” The take-away from this week’s session, so Representative Devin Nunes (R–CA) told Fox’s Megyn Kelly, was that the beleaguered U.S. diplomats and CIA staff in Benghazi were not beyond assistance, as Obama Administration officials would have us believe. Repeatedlymembers of the Administration have stated that there was just not enough time for military assets to come to the aid of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his staff in the diplomatic facility, or the contractors and staff in the CIA annex roughly a mile away.
Yet, two factors have emerged, undercutting the Administration’s argument:
- The diplomatic facility came under attack at 9:00 p.m. on September11, fighting at the CIA annex erupted between 12:30 a.m. and 2:00 a.m., and culminated with a mortar barrage at 5:00 a.m. on the 12th. Throughout the evening and the morning, people all over Benghazi, including other foreign diplomats, followed the fighting with fascination. No one could possibly know with certainty that this was the end of the battle, though Washington clearly hoped that it was.
- Seven CIA security specialists actually did come to the rescue from Tripoli, arriving at the CIA annex just as the mortar attack was erupting at 5:00 a.m. Their trip on a Libyan military C-130H cargo plane had been an exercise in massive frustration, including three and a half hours spent at the Benghazi airport, waiting on negotiations with local Libyan militias over safe passage from the airport to the CIA annex. The CIA specialists did finally make it to the annex, to the massive relief of the besieged staff. “
” A woman found herself in a sticky situation after going to the restroom at The Home Depot store at Banks Crossing last week.
Someone had apparently put glue on all of the toilet seats in the women’s restroom and she didn’t realize it until she became stuck on the seat. Emergency medical services personnel were called to the store to help remove the woman from the toilet seat, according to an incident report filed at the Banks County Sheriff’s Office.”

” A shooting outside of downtown Pittsburgh’s Capital Grille was caught on surveillance tape.
Police allege the brawl between the accused and the victim started after the shooting.
“ They pulled out their guns and shot at each other right in the street in broad daylight. People were running,” a witness said.
Police said 22-year-old Hassan Howze is seen scuffling with and then shooting Jamel Terry.
Howze and another man, Antonio Peterson, were both arrested in connection with the shooting. Peterson is accused of being an accomplice.”
” A missing shipment of radioactive cobalt-60 was found Wednesday near where the stolen truck transporting the material was abandoned in central Mexico, the country’s nuclear safety director said.
The highly radioactive material had been removed from its container, officials said, and one predicted that anyone involved in opening the box could be in grave danger of dying within days.
The cobalt-60 was left in a rural area about a kilometer (a half a mile) from Hueypoxtla, an agricultural town of about 4,000 people, but it posed no threat or a need for an evacuation, said Juan Eibenschutz, director general of the National Commission of Nuclear Safety and Safeguards.”
Announcing The New & Improved Koran … Now In Two Ply … LOL
” The UN’s atomic energy watchdog today announced that a truck carrying dangerous radioactive material has been stolen in Mexico, adding that the material could be used to produce a dirty bomb. As AFP reports, the truck was carrying the material from a hospital in Tijuana to a waste center before it was stolen near Mexico City. Suspects have yet to be named, though Mexican authorities have alerted the public and are currently investigating.”
But there is no need to secure our border . What could possibly go wrong letting our southern boundary be open to all comers ?
” The cobalt-60 material onboard was used for medical purposes, and was properly sealed at the time of the robbery, the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a statement Wednesday. It could be “extremely dangerous,” however, if the thieves remove or damage the shielding. Cobalt-60 is a synthetic radioactive isotope used in a variety of industrial applications and for medical radiotherapy. It is usually held in medical containers that prevent people from being exposed for strong radiation.”
Nothing to see here , move along , remain calm , all is well …
Ukrainian Upheaval Over The Government’s Refusal To Join EU
Here is a collection of videos both amateur and from some of the news agencies giving the reader an idea of what is going on for the past week in the Ukraine .
