Gareth Porter pt 2: Questions are raised as to whether the White House omitted information in its intelligence report to support President Obama’s agenda to strike Syria.


Gareth Porter, an investigative historian and journalist specialising in U.S. national security policy, received the UK-based Gellhorn Prize for journalism for 2011 for articles on the U.S. war in Afghanistan.

  5. This is totally INSANE!!! Has the world gone crazy? Avoiding war is ‘insanity’? If the Americans were ever to experience a war on their own territory, perhaps they would feel differently. War isn’t ‘fun and games’.

  9. It doesn’t matter who is President – the same lies, the same bullshit over and over…again and again. The ‘exceptional’ people causing havoc all over the world. What is so ‘exceptional’ about this? What an odious nation it has become.

    • I totally agree, Brilliant.

      Chris Hedges also spells it out with phenomenal aplomb.

      Barack O’Blarney is just a gas. His embarrassing and shameful hyperbole is a grotesquerie; disgusting, vulgar and vacuous sales patter.

      The history of Syria is contemptible enough, but how can the world come to its moral senses, unless we can overcome the massive liability of a triumphalist USA ~ a bloated, reactionary and unaccountable super-power running amok in the Middle-east?

      Further re the Mossad hoodoo Gareth Porter refers to, Craig Murray’s “Troodos conundrum” adds a significant probability pathway to this omni-dimensional enigma.
