CIA Estimate for ISIS: 31,500, Up by 21,500

It may be 31,000. It may be 20,000. But 31,500 sounds like more of a threat, so the CIA will let you choose that figure.
Bottom line: the CIA has no idea.
In June, there were 10,000, we are told. Really? What was the official CIA estimate in June? Sorry. The CIA did not offer one.
Why not? Because in June, ISIS had only recently been identified as a terrorist organization. In May, it was a freedom-fighting institution. It was fighting Bashar al-Assad, that evil man in Syria. You know. Hitler. Back in May, the U. S. government gave military aid to ISIS as part of the anti-Assad coalition.
Anyway, ISIS is now up to 31,500, maybe. That’s up 21,500 in three months. This is for both Syria and Iraq.
That is a growth rate that indicates a looming mass movement. Recruits could be described as coming out of the woodwork, if Syria and Iraq had any wood. But Obama is going to defeat ISIS with drone strikes operated by pilots in Nevada. No problem.
No boots. No ground. Drones.

HUFFPO: RAISE TAXES AND BRING BACK DRAFT TO FIGHT ISIS

Lib-left establishment calls for sacrifice in the name of the state
H. A. Goodman, a regular at The Huffington Post, Salon and a former State Department employee, believes the only way to fight the Islamic State is to confiscate more hard-earned dollars from the American people and bring back conscription. According to Goodman, we’re a nation of selfish sloths, television watchers who expect a volunteer army to fight our existential battles. ‘It’s time to get off the couch, America, and collectively sacrifice for national security, both through taxes to fund the next conflict and a draft, like previous generations in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam,’ he writes.
Goodman runs to Jon Meacham, a CFR insider, who argued back in 2012 for a return to conscripted slavery, otherwise known as the draft, in order to fight the empire’s wars. Body bags, missing limbs, PTSD and all the other horrors of large scale organized mass murder are a small price to pay to protect America against enemies of its own making.
He quotes R. Russell Rumbaugh, a military analyst at the CIA, who took the pages of the nation’s premier war propaganda broadsheet, The New York Times, to argue we couch-sitters are under taxed and a ‘permanent tax surcharge to pay for wars’ is required to ‘ensure that we… achieve our interests throughout the world.’ Rumbaugh, of course, believes the interests of the CFR and the American people are one and the same.

FBI Whistleblower: Pentagon, CIA, NATO & MI6 Were Masterminds Behind 9/11

Of late, we have put focus on the Rothschilds, elites, New World Order, call them what you will. They exist, and they have very direct, yet very behind the scenes control over everyone’s lives, at least those who choose not to take any defensive actions for their own selves and family. The totally unlawful mosaic of underhanded deceit and treachery is mind-boggling, and kept totally out of the mainstream media.
The main objective of the elites is to establish its New World Order, [via the Council on Foreign Relations, the United Nations, and BIS [Bank of International Settlements], among others] that eliminates sovereign countries, [the European Union replacing the individual countries which have to accept being ruled by unelected bureaucrats that run the EU; the United States taken over by the moneychangers via the Federal Reserve central bank, now ruled by puppet presidents who rule by Executive Order, and now rule the U S by an increasingly militarized police state – Ferguson, Missouri is your present day look into your near future].
No existing Western government represents the people governed. All elite-ruled governments function in order to preserve the banking system, above all else. This is admittedly a condensed version of what is going on, but anyone who chooses to do their own research and verification will eventually come to the same conclusion.

IT WILL TAKE GROUND TROOPS TO FIGHT ISIS BLOCK BY BLOCK

National security experts say Obama’s promise to eradicate ISIS through airstrikes is doomed to failure. ‘What a waste of time,’ Larry Johnson, a former CIA analyst and counterterrorism official at the State Department, told The Washington Times. ‘We have not learned a thing in 80 years. [The Islamic State] is an army. The air power is not going to get the job done. Until you put troops in and kill these guys, they’re going to continue. They adjust to tactics. They meld into [the] civilian population.’
According to the Times, Islamic State soldiers will adjust to airstrikes and continue fighting. They are now well integrated in Mosul, Fallujah, Ramadi and other Iraqi towns and it will take skilled land combatants to evict them, block by block.
Republicans in Congress agree it will take ground troops to put a stop to ISIS.

FACEBOOK POSES A THREAT TO EVERY AMERICAN

Participation on Facebook could prove very dangerous to your future well-being. There is a reason that Facebook is aligned with both the CIA and the NSA. I have several credible sources tell me that all data posted on Facebook goes into series of cataloged files which culminates with each person being assigned a ‘Threat Matrix Score’. The mere existence of a Threat Matrix Score should send chills up and the collective spines of every American.
When, not if, martial law comes to America, this Threat Matrix Score, of which Facebook data is used to help compile an ‘enemies of the state’ list, your future longevity could be seriously imperiled. It is too late for people like Steve Quayle, Doug and Joe Hagmann, John B. Wells and myself to avoid being placed on this list. However, it is not too late for the average American to limit their exposure by NOT posting and participating on Facebook. Facebook participation should come with a black box warning:
‘WARNING: The views expressed on Facebook can and will be used against you. Participation in Facebook could prove detrimental to the length of your life. All political dissident views are immediately reported to the CIA and the NSA. Risk of repeated exposure on Facebook could result in you and your family being hauled out of their homes at 3AM, separated from your family and sent to a re-education camp’.
Before you dismiss this hypothetical black box warning as too much ‘tongue in cheek’, please consider that the NSA is presently extracting large amounts of Facebook data and I do not think they are compiling a Christmas card list.

FBI Whistleblower: Pentagon, CIA, NATO and MI6 Were Masterminds Behind 9/11

‘As Far As People Who Ran The Show, It Was The Highest Levels of NATO, the U. S., MI6, CIA And The Pentagon’ Sibel Edmonds has just released her fantastic spy thriller, The Lone Gladio. Here’s our review, comparing it to the best of Clancy or Ludlum … but with a twist.
In the real world, Edmonds is a former FBI translator who translated terror-related communications for the FBI right after 9/11. In that capacity, she read communications between terrorists and other radicals.
Edmonds has been deemed credible by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General, several senators(free subscription required), and a coalition of prominent conservative and liberal groups.
The ACLU described Edmonds as:
The most gagged person in the history of the United States of America.
Famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg says that Edmonds possesses information ‘far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers’. He also says that the White House has ordered the press not to cover Edmonds:
I am confident that there is conversation inside the Government as to ‘How do we deal with Sibel [Edmonds]?
The first line of defense is to ensure that she doesn’t get into the media. I think any outlet that thought of using her materials would go to to the government and they would be told ‘don’t touch this . . . .’
Even Paul Newman praises Edmonds, saying:

OBAMA’S LONG ISIS WAR: IT WILL TAKE YEARS AND KILL THOUSANDS

The New York Times, long the preferred conduit for war propaganda, has laid out Obama’s plan to defeat ISIS, aka the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. The administration warns the effort will take years to complete and continue after Obama has left office. The first phase a sustained air campaign will, the Times claims, roll back ISIS gains in northern and western Iraq. Details on how this will work minus ground troops is not explained.
Next, the United States will shuffle around the government in Iraq to make it ‘more inclusive.’ This is total blue sky.
Following the U. S. invasion and the toppling and eventual execution of strongman and former CIA operative Saddam Hussein, Iraq predictably descended into sectarian violence. This was planned. ‘What is unfolding is a process of ‘constructive chaos,’ engineered by the West,’ writes Julie Lvesque. ‘The destabilization of Iraq and its fragmentation has been planned long ago and is part of the ‘Anglo-American-Israeli ‘military road map’ in the Middle East,’ an effort introduced during the Bush administration and coined the ‘New Middle East’ by then U. S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The final element of Obama’s supposed plan to deal with ISIS calls for a de facto invasion of Syria. The Pentagon estimates this part of the plan will take at least 36 months.

American Spartans?

There are very few Spartans in the American military forces. In fact, there are few who even know what a ‘Spartan’ is these days. I think Americans today think a Spartan is a very dumb, show-off football player at USC who does back flips for the tv fans.
The real Spartans of the ancient world were like Russia’s Spetznetz forces today, lifers totally committed to fighting for their nation. More than 60,000 Ukrainian troops heavily armed and supplied by the U. S. just panicked and fled as soon as one of their Candy Leaders screamed, ‘The Russians are Coming.’ There’s hardly a real Russian to be seen in the Ukraine and even the Candy King claims there are only 1,000, but his candy-assed ‘soldiers’ panicked at the very thought of Russian Spartans.
The American Spartan Major who wrote the book about his experience in Afghanistan is one of the guys who takes hearts-and-minds seriously, the ancient way. The Russian Soviets did not do that when they went into Afghanistan by invitation of the Marxist government. Once the guerrilla forces, including bin-Laden and the Arabs he recruited with CIA money, got the Stingers, they blew away the Hinds and the Red Army fled home to help the USSR implode. The U. S. annihilated Afghanistan and lost all hearts and minds to start with, both there and in Pakistan. If the guerrillas had Stingers, the U. S. would have been blown away long ago.

Top 10 Greatest Problems Humanity Currently Faces

There are many issues currently threatening humanity. Here are some of the most critical issues that come to mind. Issues that humanity must figure out if it is to survive the current fight against the controlling class. Perhaps at some point we will figure it all out.
Changes never happen overnight; and, as a whole, most Americans hopefully do have a few things in common. Surely one of the solutions is to look for what we all have in common and see how we can all work together to improve things. Coming together on wider platforms is also a key to moving forward.
Here are the top issues and potential solutions.
10. Government secrecy
John F. Kennedy warned of the dangers of secret societies making decisions for humanity. More on this speech later. Secrecy of government could be number one on this list. Ultimately all of humanity’s problems stem back to government secrecy. From CIA to the Pentagon, to CFR, Bilderberg secret meetings, to the Masonic groups, secret fraternities and more, secrecy is the norm in this government and is the building block upon which all other forms of deception are built. This secrecy is not spoken about enough because we are all conditioned to believe that government needs to be secret. All state crimes are secret. All evidence against government is secret. All covert crimes are protected from exposure due to the nature of the beast. See any problems with this? There are no scenarios where humanity will be able to thrive while state crimes and illegalities are all secret. We will never have legitimate elections, and activist groups dedicated to truth and justice will always fight against the wall of secrecy that humanity is up against. Conversely, governments that operate in secret are obsessed with making your life known to all. It is a crime in every scenario for you to not divulge the truth about yourself or to not speak the truth to a police officer or a member of the courts. The individual is immediately charged with perjury. Government, however, as well as police, can lie to you, trick you, and hide the facts from you often without any consequences.

USAID: ‘In desperate need of adult supervision’

We’ve been tracking the dirty work of the U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID) for several years now – a Federal government agency that claims its main charge to be administering U. S. foreign assistance around the world: ‘USAID is the lead U. S. Government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential.’ (via usaid.gov)
On August 11th of this year, 21WIRE’s report on USAID’s secret operation against Cuba detailed how the agency ‘established a fake HIV prevention workshop in Cuba where their young recruits worked to turn young people against the Castro regime.’
The author of the report, Stuart J. Hooper, expands:
‘After undertaking a few short seminars, these young people were expected to do the work of a seasoned CIA officer, which is something that could have easily gotten their vastly inexperienced and unprepared selves into severe trouble with Cuban authorities.’
Not exactly the hallmark of a humanitarian agency promising to end global poverty.

Obama Gets Back To Work…..At The Celtic Manor Resort: But Just Lose The NATO Part!

Better that our President work on the greens and skip the NATO meetings. Its an anachronism anyway, and should have been abolished 25-years ago when the cold war ended and its reason for being vanished.
Would that back then Bush ’41′ had parachuted into Ramstein Air Base in southern Germany and declared ‘mission accomplished’! The American taxpayers would have been spared billions in the sheer waste of maintaining NATO, and the world would have been spared the bombast of armchair war mongers like NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. By the way, he’s the guy with an unwavering capacity to make ‘Baghdad Bob’ look good, having assured the world back in 2003 that
‘Iraq has WMDs. It is not something we think, it is something we know.’
When the Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact vassal regimes vanished into the mortuary of history, NATO had 16 member states in a mutual defense alliance that had arguably enhanced the safety and security of citizens in Lincoln NE and Spokane WA. Now it has 28 members including the likes of Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Slovenia and Slovakia – micro-states that are mainly insolvent and have no bearing whatsoever on national security.
Worse, it was Washington’s double-cross of Russia that set the stage for the present clash over Ukraine. The elder Bush who did not use his parachute in Germany did promise Gorbachev in 1989 that in return for vacating the eastern regions of that nation that NATO would not be expanded ‘by a single inch’.
Fast forward to February 2014 and his successor not only permitted the US foreign policy and CIA apparatus to fund and orchestrate the overthrow of the democratically elected government in Kiev, but did so with the implicit condition that the resulting junta would ‘pivot’ to the west and eventually join NATO. Yes, while Putin was sitting in his box taking bows at Sochi NATO came knocking on his back door.
Prior to February 21, 2014 there was not a peep out of Washington about Putin’s designs on Ukraine, rebellion of Russian speakers in the eastern Donbas region or an ‘invasion’ of Russian forces. None of this even entered the narrative until an unelected and radical nationalist junta in Kiev brought the threat of ethnic cleansing, and then launched a brutal campaign of aerial and artillery bombardment on its own citizens in the eastern regions.

Warning to the World: Washington and its NATO & EU Vassals are Insane – Paul Craig Roberts

Herbert E. Meyer, a nutcase who was a special assistant to the CIA director for a period during the Reagan administration, has penned an article calling for Russian President Putin’s assassination. If we have ‘ to get him out of the Kremlin feet-first with a bullet hole in the back of his head, that would be okay with us.’ As the crazed Meyer illiustrates, the insanity that Washington has released upon the world knows no restraint. Jose Manual Barroso, installed as Washington’s puppet as European Commission President, misrepresented his recent confidential telephone conversation with Russia’s President Putin by telling the media that Putin issued a threat: ‘If I want to, I can take Kiev in two weeks.’
Clearly, Putin did not issue a threat. A threat would be inconsistent with Putin’s entire unprovocative approach to the strategic threat that Washington and its NATO puppets have brought to Russia in Ukraine. Russia’s permanent representative to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, said that if Barroso’s lie stands, Russia will make public the full recording of the conversation
Anyone familiar with the disparity between the Ukrainian and Russian militaries knows full well that it would take the Russian military 14 hours, not 14 days, to take all of Ukraine. Just remember what happened to the American and Israeli trained and equipped Georgian Army when Washington set its stupid Georgian puppets on South Ossetia. The American and Israeli trained and equipped Georgian army collapsed under Russian counterattack in 5 hours.
The lie that Washington’s puppet Barroso told was not worthy of a serious person. But where in Europe is there a serious person in power? Nowhere. The few serious people are all out of power. Consider the NATO Secretary General, Anders Rasmussen. He was a prime minister of Denmark who saw he could rise beyond Denmark by serving as Washington’s puppet. As prime minister he strongly supported Washington’s illegal invasion of Iraq, declaring that ‘we know that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction.’ Of course, the fool didn’t know any such thing, and why would it matter if Iraq did have such weapons. Many countries have weapons of mass destruction.

WHISTLEBLOWER CLAIMS HE WAS SET UP IN RETALIATION FOR CRITICIZING OBAMA

Nobel Peace Prize nominee and fierce Obama critic Jim Garrow claims he was set up in retaliation for critizicing the President after an illegal gun was planted at his home, leading to Garrow’s subsequent arrest.
Garrow, the founder of The Pink Pagoda Girls, an organization dedicated to rescuing baby girls from ‘gendercide’ in China, appeared on the Alex Jones Show last year to warn that he was told by a top military veteran that the Obama administration’s ‘litmus test’ for new military leaders is whether or not they will obey an order to fire on U. S. citizens.
Garrow subsequently went on to claim that he had been a covert CIA agent but was fired by the Obama administration for speaking out.
On Sunday August 24, Garrow was arrested at his home in Ontario, Canada in an incident he asserts was a ‘set up’ in retribution for his public statements against the Obama administration.

10 CONSPIRACY THEORIES THAT CAME TRUE

When questioning the official narrative proved crucial
Despite the fact that the term ‘conspiracy theory’ has been weaponized by the establishment as a perjorative slur against anyone who questions the official narrative of any government pronouncement, there are innumerable examples throughout history of conspiracies that were proven to be true.
Let’s take a look at ten examples;
1) Operation AJAX and false flag terror
The notion that governments and intelligence agencies carry out acts of false flag terrorism has long been derided by the establishment media as a conspiracy theory, despite there being a plethora of historically documented instances.
After decades of denial, in August 2013 the CIA finallyadmitted its role in staging the coup in Iran which led to the overthrow of Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953 under the umbrella of Operation AJAX.
Under AJAX, the CIA oversaw covert operations which included acts of false flag terror which claimed the lives of some 300 people.
2) Gulf of Tonkin
On August 4, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson went on national television and told the nation that North Vietnam had attacked U. S. ships.
‘Repeated acts of violence against the armed forces of the United States must be met not only with alert defense, but with a positive reply. That reply is being given as I speak tonight,’ Johnson declared.

ISIS dot com: Social Media Barons Are Pushing the New Barbarity

Something stinks in the upper echelon of the mega media barons.
Isn’t it interesting how Facebook bots will censor certain political posts, or how your page can be pulled down for a remark someone behind the communitarian curtain claims is ‘offensive’, while jihadist and ISIS terror gangs are allowed to openly use the same social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook for recruitment, ‘martyr selfies’, marketing, T-Shirt sales, and to post murder photos?
If only the problem ended there. Something much deeper, and much more insidious is going on behind the doors of Silicon Valley, Hollywood and CIA meeting rooms, or maybe not – they tell us this is simply progress. New and dark cultural features are being unleashed into the minds of the public via the War on Terror, and it’s all for profit…

Marketing Push: ‘Terrorism is Cool’
Writing for Stratfor, August 28, Robert D. Kaplan said that ‘Terrorism is Theatre’, but of course only for the mentally sick, including the Internet barons who directly profit from Death Pornography.
Kaplan claims that by choosing decapitation as the method for killing US journalist James Foley, the degenerate psychopaths of ISIS were ‘right on the Internet social network button’, in some sort of macabre tribute to the ISIS marketing department.

The Mother of All Blowback

President Barack Obama is being lambasted by US Republicans for admitting that ‘we don’t have a strategy yet’ for dealing with the rise of the militant group, ISIS, or Islamic State, as it’s now known.
Given that the US had made an unbelievable mess of its Mideast policies, the president is right to pause and think, something his shoot -from- the- lip Republican critics rarely do. They are demanding the US attack both Iraq and Syria without asking ‘what then oh brave Washington warriors?’ These are the Republicans who ardently supported George Bush’s catastrophic invasion and destruction of Iraq.
The problem is that too many cooks in Washington are spoiling its Mideast soup. In his magnificent new book, ‘The Sleepwalkers,’ Prof. Christopher Clark of Cambridge describes how World War I was in part ignited by small numbers of anti-German officials in France, Russia, Serbia and Britain who often undermined their own government’s moderate policies.
The same process occurred under President George W. Bush when cabals of neocon officials in the Pentagon, State Department, CIA and media drove the US into a calamitous war whose negative effects are still being felt.

Islamic State tortured James Foley, other Westerners with harsh CIA tactics

The American photojournalist who was beheaded by Islamic State militants was also tortured using some of the same methods employed by the CIA in its controversial, post-9/11 interrogation program.
James Foley was subjected to waterboarding multiple times while being imprisoned by the Islamic State, as were three other kidnapped Westerners. According to the Washington Post, several unnamed American officials confirmed the news, with one adding that Foley ‘suffered a lot of physical abuse’ before his death.
A French journalist who was held by the Islamic State along with Foley said, in addition to waterboarding, the American was punished even more than others after militants discovered his brother was a member of the US Air Force.
In a video released last week, Foley was beheaded by a masked, English-speaking Islamic State militant. The actions of the hardline Islamist group, which has brutally torn through parts of Iraq and Syria, have triggered a military response from the United States, and they described Foley’s murder as ‘a message to America’ for its use of airstrikes in Iraq.

Bombs Away Over Syria! Washington Has Gone Stark Raving Mad

America’s spanker-in-chief is at it again – threatening to bomb Syria owing to the uncivilized actions of its inhabitants. And when it comes to Syria, Washington avers that there are punishable malefactors virtually everywhere within its borders.
Exactly one year ago Obama proposed to take Bashar Al Assad to the woodshed because he had allegedly unleashed a vicious chemical attack on his own citizens. That was all pretext, of course, because even the CIA refused to sign-off on the flimsy case for Assad’s culpability at the time – -a reluctance corroborated since then by the considerable evidence that hundreds of Syrian civilians were murdered during a false flag operation staged by the rebels with help from Turkey. The aim of the rebels, of course, was to activate American tomahawk missiles and bombers in behalf of ‘regime change’, which was also the stated goal of the Obama Administration.
Now the White House is threatening to bomb Syria again, but this time its ‘regime change’ objective has been expanded to include both sides! In 12 short months what had been the allegedly heroic Sunni opposition to the ‘brutal rule’ of the Assad/Alawite minority has transmuted into the ‘greatest terrorist threat ever’, according to the Secretary of Defense.
So Obama has already unleashed the drones and surveillance apparatus to identify targets of attack that will help bring down a regime in northern and eastern Syria – the so-called Islamic State – which did not even exist a year ago. And a regime that is now armed to the teeth with America’s own latest and greatest weaponry as previously supplied to the disintegrated Iraqi army and the Syrian rebels trained by the CIA in Jordan.
Adding to this blinding farce is the warning of Syria’s Foreign Affairs minister that Obama should please to request permission before he rains destruction from the sky on the Opposition – -that is, the opposition to the very same Damascus regime which the White House has vowed to eradicate. Needless to say, the Washington apparatus is having nothing to do with aiding the enemy of its new enemy:

New Book- CIA Plotted to Assassinate Nixon Over Vietnam Troop Withdrawals, Detente

Senator Howard Baker learned Agency Infiltrated and sabotaged the Watergate Break-in
Roger Stone, former Advisor to Richard Nixon and New York Times bestselling author of The Man Who Killed Kennedy – now says the same forces who killed JFK tried twice to assassinate President Richard Nixon for the same reason, Vietnam and their bitter opposition to detente.
A Washington Insider for forty years, Stone’s sweeping new book Nixon’s Secrets traced the ark of the career of the 37th President, Richard Milhous Nixon, the most brilliant, sad, bold, awkward, disciplined, insecure, proud and visionary man to ever serve as President.
Stone claims the CIA tried to kill Nixon twice in Miami in 1972. Nixon further inflamed the CIA for demanding their records on the Bay Of Pigs and the JFK assassination. ‘CIA Director Richard Helms and Nixon had so much on each other that neither could breathe’ says Sen Howard Baker in Stones’s book. When Baker asked Nixon who really killed JFK, Nixon barked ‘you don’t want to know’ according to CBS producer Don Hewitt.
The author who proved LBJ, the CIA, the Mob and wealthy right-wing Texas Oilmen plotted to kill John Kennedy in his first book The Man Who Killed Kennedy – the Case Against LBJ now says ‘The CIA, the JOINT CHIEFS, NSC all opposed Nixon’s rapid draw-down of troops from Vietnam, his arms control agreement with the USSR and the opening to China’ said Stone. ‘They thought Nixon would be the ultimate hard-line anticommunist and were shocked by his pro-peace foreign policies.’ Stone told the UK Daily Mail.
Stone says a military spy ring started spying on Nixon as early as 1969- with a Navy courier copying documents from burn bags, desks, files and even Henry Kissinger’s brief case and send the material to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Admiral Thomas Moorer says Stone and co-author Mike Colapietro, a veteran investigative Journalist.

The Murder of James Foley

In response to the Islamic State’s execution of American journalist James Foley, President Obama referred to Foley’s killers as a ‘cancer.’ That, of course, implies that anti-American terrorism is like a disease, one that strikes at nations willy nilly, without rhyme or reason. Obama’s cancer metaphor for ISIS brings to mind what President Bush said about al Qaeda after the 9/11 attacks – that the terrorists were motivated by hatred for America’s freedom and values. Under either formulation – cancer or hatred for America’s freedom and values – the war on terrorism is going to last a very long time, which naturally means an ongoing presence and ever-increasing budgets for the Cold War-era national-security establishment, i.e., the military and the CIA. But the truth is that anti-American terrorism is not like cancer and it’s not motivated by hatred for America’s freedom and values. It is instead a direct result of the U. S. government’s interventionist foreign policy. Interventionism generates the rage within foreigners that motivates them to respond with acts of anti-American terrorism. This is what Obama and Bush, who share the same commitment to foreign interventionism, just don’t get or won’t get. They can’t afford to get it. If they got it and said it, the American people might ask a very simple, discomforting question: Why not bring an end to foreign interventionism, which would bring an end to anti-American terrorism?
Consider the beheading of James Foley. He was being kept alive by his captors up until Obama’s air force initiated bombing runs over Iraq that killed many of the ISIS fighters. Those U. S. killings of ISIS fighters produced the rage within Foley’s captors that motivated them to respond by killing an American citizen, in this case James Foley. What conclusion can be drawn from this episode?
