    • White House denies Obama called off binLaden raid three timesRT.comAugust 1, 2012The White House is rejecting accusationsreportedly included in a soon-to-be-released book that suggests US PresidentBarack Obama repeatedly postponedauthorizing a raid targeting Osama binLaden.A preview of Richard Miniter’s forthcomingbook ‘Leading from Behind: The ReluctantPresident and the Advisors Who Decide ForHim’ was published in The Daily Caller overthe weekend, and in it the website revealsaccusations made in the memoir, including charges that President Obama called off the raid that killedbin Laden three times before giving it his go ahead.According to The Daily Caller’s write-up, unnamed sources with the Joint Special OperationsCommand who had direct knowledge of the May 2, 2011 execution of bin Laden revealed secrets toMiniter. In turn, the author writes that there was much more to the raid than the public was made awareof. Allegations relayed to the journalist — who has twice toppled the New York Times best-sellingauthor list — suggest that only after thrice postponing the hallmark raid did President Obama authorizethe SEAL Team Six operation that ended bin Laden’s life.“President Obama’s greatest success was actually his greatest failure,” Miniter tells The Daily Caller.Miniter also alleges that Obama was coached through the bin Laden mission with the guidance ofsenior advisor Valerie Jarrett, who was instrumental in enforcing the commander-in-chief to sign off onthe final mission. The administration is now dismissing those claims as well, though, and White Housespokesman Josh Earnest tells USA Today that those charges are falsified, adding, “So I wouldn’t putany stock into that vignette or into the book itself.”The website’s preview of Miniter’s book quickly went viral and by Monday afternoon the White House went public to dismiss the author’s claims. “That is an utter fabrication,” White House spokesman Earnest told reporters Monday. “It’s seems pretty clear that Mr. Miniter doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” “Ms. Jarrett, like the vast majority of the president’s senior staff was not read in on the operation on the mission against Osama bin Laden,” Earnest added.
    • The end of al-Qaeda?US officials claim they have broken the back of the al-Qaeda network with the assassinations ofOsama bin Laden and other top leaders -- dealing the terrorist group a blow from which it isunlikely to recover.Terrorist attacks have fallen to the lowest levels since 2005, a sign that al-Qaeda is weakened and haslost some of its ability to deal death and destruction, according to a report released on Tuesday by theUS State Department.However, counter-terrorism officials were quick to point out that al-Qaeda and other terrorist groupsremain active and dangerous throughout the world.Scroll down for videoLandmark year: The death of Osama bin Laden during a US commando raid was a turning point in thewar against al-Qaeda, the State Department saysStill, the annual Country Reports on Terrorism called 2011 a landmark year, marked by the death ofal-Qaedas founder during a dramatic Navy SEAL raid in May and the assassination of US-born radicalcleric Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen.The loss of bin Laden and these other key operatives puts the network on a path of decline that will bedifficult to reverse, according to the State Department. The report attributed the killings, whichincluded the May 2011 raid in which US commandos shot bin Laden in Pakistan, to improvedcooperation on counter-terrorism. But it also cautioned al-Qaeda is adaptable and poses an enduringand serious threat.While saying there were no terrorist attacks in the United States last year, the report said the USgovernment remains concerned about threats to the homeland, citing the foiled 2009 Christmas Dayattempt by the Nigerian underwear bomber who sought to blow up a Detroit-bound aircraft.
    • Still a threat: Boko Haram and other al-Qaeda-affiliated groups remain active and capable of carryingout deadly attacks like this one in Nigeria that killed 12 peopleThe report included a statistical annex prepared by the National Counterterrorism Center, part of theUS intelligence community, that showed that the overall number of terrorist attacks worldwide fell to10,283 last year from 11,641 in 2010.The number of worldwide fatalities fell to 12,533 last year from 13,193 the year before, according tothe statistics, which NCTC issued in a report published on June 1.That was the lowest level since 2005,when there were more than 11,000 attacks and more than 14,000 fatalities. The general decline interrorism-related fatalities - which peaked at more than 22,000 in 2007 - reflects, in part, less violencein Iraq.The State Department report said that as al-Qaedas core has gotten weaker, affiliated groups havegained ground, citing al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula as a particular threat and voicing concernabout al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.It also reported an increase in terrorist attacks in Africa, due largely to Nigerias Boko Haram militantgroup, as well as in the Western Hemisphere, which it attributed chiefly to FARC insurgents inColombia.Daniel Benjamin, the State Departments coordinator for counter-terrorism, said last year was alsosignificant for the Arab Spring; of popular protests and what he described as its rebuff to al Qaedasideology.We saw millions of citizens throughout the Middle East advance peaceful public demands for changewithout any reference to al-Qaedas incendiary world view, he said, adding that upheaval also presentsrisks.Revolutionary transformations have many bumps in the road, he added. Inspiring as the moment maybe, we are not blind to the attendant perils.VIDEO: The US State Department says al-Qaeda are weaker... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2182080/The-end-al-Qaeda-US-says-Osama-bin-Laden-death-broke-terrorist-groups-back.html
    • Judge Rules al-Qaeda and Iran Must PayBillions to 9/11 FamiliesKurt NimmoInfowars.comAugust 1, 2012A federal judge in New York has ruled that al-Qaedaand Iran were responsible for the September 11, 2001attacks and has ordered them to pay victim families $6billion in compensation.On Monday, U.S. Magistrate Frank Maas imposed civilpenalties and said the money would be paid to 110survivors and the estates of 47 victims.A plaintiff’s legal team said it may seek the seizure ofIranian assets in order to pay the families.In December of 2011, a federal district court inManhattan ruled that Iran and Hezbollah materially anddirectly supported al-Qaeda in the attacks.“The families have waited a very long time for this dayand they have been through a lot. So I was greatlyrelieved that the families received an answer to thequestion that they asked me ten years ago: they askedwho was the responsible party? How did this happen?Today a federal court judge has said that a principalresponsible party is the Islamic Republic of Iran,” saidThomas E. Mellon, Jr. of Doylestown, Pennsylvania,law firm of Mellon Webster & Shelly, the lead attorneyin the case.Attorneys based their case on conclusions made by the9/11 Commission’s recommendation “regarding an apparent link between Iran, Hezbollah, and the 9/11 hijackers, following the Commission’s own eleventh-hour discovery of significant National Security Agency intercepts,” according to the Havlish, et al vs. Osama Bin Laden, Iran, et al website. Although the Commission claims al-Qaeda operatives passed through Iran and officials did not stamp their passports, it also admits (in Chapter 7) that Iran did not have knowledge of the supposed 9/11 plot. Moreover, the families of alleged hijackers Ahmed Alnami and Wail and Waleed Alshehri have denied they traveled to Iran on their way to training camps in Afghanistan.
    • In addition, although the establishment,including the Council on Foreign Relations,has claimed al-Qaeda and Hezbollah haveworked together, there is no concreteevidence of this.There is far more compelling evidence thatthe United States government and the CIAwere responsible for training and assistingAfghan Arabs who would ultimately bedesignated as members of al-Qaeda.Documented evidence reveals that Osamabin Laden worked directly with the CIA andPakistani intelligence. It is said Bin Laden was personally recruited by the CIA in 1979 in Istanbul. Hehad the close support of Prince Turk bin Faisal, who was his friend and head of Saudi intelligence (seeAndrew Gavin Marshall, The Imperial Anatomy of Al-Qaeda. The CIA’s Drug-Running Terrorists andthe “Arc of Crisis”).And yet to date there has not been a lawsuit launched against the CIA, Pakistan’s ISI, or the Saudis.Police State 4: The Rise of FEMA video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Klqv9t1zVwwLoose Change 9/11 1ST Edition video belowhttp://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5651675924179685534&qLoose Change 9/11 2ND Edtion video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyiwOJ2pnGgProject For The New American Century-PNAC exposed video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TZ3xRKSnP4Terror Storm a Histroy of False Flag Terror video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vrXgLhkv21YThe Masters Of Terror video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvWftOi_u98The Obama Deception The Truth About Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAaQNACwaLwFall of the Republic The Destruction of America video belowhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shU http://www.infowars.com/
