Torture and Murder of un-convicted prisoners isn’t off limits to them… so

So I guess Killing Civilians isn’t either.
Naturally it was the fault of the civilians themselves for living in the middle of a War Zone, obviously they asked God or Allah or the Great Gazzoo beforehand to be born into the poorest place on earth and the middle of a land coveted for millennia by so many Empires for its strategic location.
I bet it will make the usual War-Mongers in town, the ones who say they gave me the right to say this so I’d “goddam better shut my pie hole about it” Really Happy to know that some of the “Terrorists” executed without trial or even charges in this airstrike were Kids.

All Hail the Empire! The Emperor Knows Best!

And according to a “liberal” friend from Arizona it’s “Crazy” to say anything different.

Pentagon and State Dept Call leaked information Crimes

Just, you know, not the CRIMES committed by their agents and soldiers, it’s the revelation of those Crimes that’s ‘criminal’.
No word yet on any prosecution against the Rove-Bush Kartel for making false statements that have directly led to the deaths of thousands of United States servicemen (each one a capital offense, according the the Bush Doctrine) and a literally uncounted number of Afghan and Iraqi civilians. Although the Wikileaks reports did add a substantial number to that count.
No, the people who told massive lies to support starting and continuing the Mass Murder Campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, they’re not the subject of the Criminal Investigation, run in large part by Investigators who ARE Criminals.
It’s once again come down to prosecuting people for telling the Truth.

Accounting for IDF missing intelligence

The results of Israel’s self-investigation of the Mavi Marmara Massacre are in: surprise, the IDF commandos did no wrong, but were set back by a deficiency of intelligence. It’s what many of us were already thinking, but there’s another punchline which Israel invites by pairing the deadly raid with IDF “intelligence” assets gone missing.
Infiltrators aboard the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, seen on thermal video purporting to depict Israeli commandos being beat by Turkish peace activists
Six passengers of the humanitarian convoy are still unaccounted for. Rumors spread they may have been tossed off the ship, or languish in Israeli detention, but the trouble is, the six are also lacking for anyone missing them. Without friends or families registering concern, the convoy organizers can now deduce that the six were agents of Israel, who elected obviously to stay behind in Israel. Might this be because they were the principal provocateurs brandishing the pipes to give the IDF boarders pretext to fire upon the activists?

That would be a “pretext” in hindsight of course, because the record is emerging that the Israeli commandos were firing on the ship well in advance of attempting a boarding party. One of the objectives Israel had in detaining the activists was to prevent their account of the raid from reaching public eyes before the IDF could inundate Youtube with clips of what it planned to pretend had happened.

From the video spread round by the IDF, one gets the impression the Israeli soldiers were pummeled to within an inch of their lives. But in reality the soldiers emerged nearly unscathed. Is it possible the pipe-wielders were striking against the deck and serving also to keep the genuine activists at bay?

In fact the video footage which the activists succeeded in spiriting past their IDF jailers show the same scene devoid of what Israel described as a “lynch.” What may have looked like beatings, from Israel’s thermal camera aimed from beside the Marmara, did not register at all from up close. Curiously stealthy choreography.

While we look for the incriminating names, here are the US senators and congressmen who’ve signed on to letters drafted by AIPAC to show their support for Israel’s raid on the humanitarian convoy, and to urge President Obama to use the Security Council veto power to block any effort to investigate the killings.

Pentagoons arrest Army Spc Bradley Manning in Global War On Truth

For providing the footage of the “Suicide By Cop” Helicopter Murders of Reuters reporters and civilians in Iraq. The person who snitched him off for money ,a former high-profile hacker, Adrian Lamo, said he didn’t want to “obstruct justice” as in, actually have Murderers punished for their crimes. The BBC report also falsely claims that the group of CIVILIANS murdered by the Helicopter High-Tech Hit Men “contained some Armed Men” even though the Murderers and their accomplices didn’t bring forth any such evidence. Just when I thought I could count on the BBC to put out a report unbiased by the Pentagon Warmonger Thugs.

handed his name to US authorities because of concerns over US national security and because he did not want to be found to have been “obstructing justice” in the course of any investigation.

“National Security”? NONE of the victims provided a threat to the security of the United States.
God-Damned Lying Prick. So when does the PROOF of the FACTS that the U.S. Army is on an unregulated murder spree in Iraq and routinely murders CIVILIANS, then LIES about their murderous actions, become a “threat to National Security”?

The Army commits heinous War Crimes and dares the people to provide evidence of their crimes, then when somebody IS man enough to provide the evidence, they have their PIG comrades in the FBI and Homeland “security” arrest the man.

Bradley Manning is the hero of this affair, and those who MURDERED civilians, whose victims included CHILDREN, are Cowardly Skulks.

Some “Operation Enduring Freedom” they’ve got going there. Must pretend that we’re over defending America and liberating the people. Lying sack of putrid decadent bloodstained shit.

Afghan-Greyhound mix shot down like a dog in the street, in Khandahar.

For getting too close to the Imperial Storm Troopers, who despite their claims to be “liberators” actually think they own the entire road. How DARE a Civilian Bus attempt to be in THEIR road?
Four people dead. The Pentagon Cover-Up Division is on the job though, fear not, the Imperial Storm Troopers will NOT be punished.

Well well Military can’t find its copies of videos from helicopter-shooting of two Reuters reporters

Even though the videos would have been taken through the onboard computers of the helicopters involved. In order to erase that much data, one would have to “zero out” the drive on which the videos were stored. And, any other drives onto which the videos were copied.

“We had no reason to hold the video at (Central Command), nor did the higher headquarters in Iraq,”

Other than, perhaps, because it showed Army Helicopter Pilots deliberately targeting civilians…

Hanzlik said in an e-mailed statement. “We’re attempting to retrieve the video from the unit who did the investigation.”

They DID, however, show it to investigators from Reuters wanting to know what the hell happened to their reporters 3 years ago.

The good news is, the video has been leaked to at least two websites,

The July 12, 2007, attack has been reported before. But Web site Wikileaks.org on Monday posted the video shot from one of the Apache helicopters, putting it on “collateralmurder.com” site.

Now, when the Army showed Reuters the videos of their employees being summarily Executed it was done “off the record”. and they wouldn’t allow Reuters to have a copy of it, not even heavily Redacted.

gives whole new meaning to “blow ‘n’ go”. We kill you then split.

So now the Army is saying, according to the gentleman and scholar Officer quoted first, that out of all the copies they made, on various computers, including the copy shown to Reuters, they can’t find one to compare to the leaked video. Which is also according to the Army is probably authentic. Just, you know, they don’t want to CAN’T yeah that’s the ticket Can’t prove it.

Now, the Military Procurement rules forbid procuring anything for free. They have to contract the procurement for each item, at quantity, and show in triplicate how much they paid for it.
The practical upshot of that is they wouldn’t have a free operating system. For Pay Only. Windows probably. Also Mac, perhaps enterprise editions of Linux, UNIX the daddy of them all.
But probably microsux.

I’m reminded of that scene in South Park where the U.S. general is presenting the plans to the assembled troops for the coming war against Canada.
The 3D hologram starts up, sputters, dies. General yells “Goddam Windows 95! Bring me Bill Gates!” They bring in Gates, who starts to offer some bullshit explanation, general pulls out his service M1911A ACP and blows his head off.

Now, I know that they teach the soldiers some really BAD freakin’ computer habits, meaning Windoze from Microsux. Which would leave traces in three different directories, at least, two of them hidden so they can’t be easily erased. And that would be on each computer which hosted the video. Don’t believe me, because I could just as easily be bullshitting you, God knows a whole lot of people DO. Try it out. Spend a few bucks and get an “email washing” program, or just use DiskEdit from the Nortons (Symantec) utilities on every modern version of Winblows. Go online and read the user help instruction pages for any program that does that.

Or you could trust me. But it would be God-Damned impossible for the Army to simply LOSE that many files. They use a variation of this same Anti-Microsoft dissertation in every court case where they put computer files in evidence.

So as usual They Be Bullshittin’.
