How liberal fascist democracy 'special needs' justice rules: that the state is now revealing a few bits of reality should burst any residual liberal delusions

NYT omits info too strongly suggesting a fascist dictatorship, including that:
* Gen. Keith B. Alexander: Director National Security Agency (DIRNSA) within U.S. Department of Defense. Concurrently Chief of the Central Security Service (CHCSS) and Commander of U.S. Cyber Command (CYBERCOM)

US finance capital speaks: 'arab spring' requirements in MENA to secure US global domination
Egypt Needs Washington’s Help Now More than Ever
VOA INSIGHT Middle East Voices: http://middleeastvoices.voanews.com/2013/06/insight-egypt-needs-washingt...
...President Mohamed Morsi is not interested in hearing mandates from the United States, but may find it can help broker a political deal he will need for his presidency to endure... U.S. strategic interests and political values are interwoven with Egypt’s political trajectory. In addition to extensive U.S.-Egyptian military and strategic ties, Egypt’s diplomacy on the issues of Palestine, Syria, Libya, and Iran can go a long way in support of key U.S. interests. Most importantly in the long run, however, is the broader demonstration effect the Egyptian regime transition will have on other Arab countries experimenting with political transitions over the course of the decade.

Obama: 'Significant Vulnerability' at US Spy Agency
6/27 http://www.voanews.com/content/obama-says-significant-vulnerability-exis...
U.S. President Barack Obama says the disclosure of clandestine US government surveillance programs by a former intelligence contractor shows there is a "pretty significant vulnerability" at the secretive National Security Agency....At a news conference Thursday in Senegal, the President said "I have not called President Xi or President Putin personally and the reason is...number one, I shouldn't have to. Number two, we've got a whole lot of business we do with China and Russia, and I'm not going to have one case of a suspect we're trying to extradite suddenly being elevated to where I've got to start doing wheeling and dealing and trading on a whole host of other issues...I am not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker,"" Obama said.

"After a difficult decade, we are responsibly ending today's wars from a position of strength.

US, NATO disasters stack up in Afghanistan
9/16/12, http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-afghan-violence-2012...
KABUL Afghanistan — In a disastrous day for NATO force in Afghanistan, four US troops were gunned down Sunday by Afghan police, a US airstrike killed eight Afghan women foraging for fuel on a rural hillside...Villagers loaded the bodies into trucks and drove them to the provincial governor's office, parading them through the streets in protest. NATO acknowledged that five to eight civilians were accidentally killed in a strike targeting a group of insurgents, and expressed regret....also military officials disclosed that a Taliban strike on a southern base destroyed more than $150 million worth of planes and equipment — by far the costliest single insurgent attack in 11 years of warfare in money terms...
The confluence of events underscored the conflict's most damaging trends: an unrelenting tide of "insider" attacks, in which Afghan forces turn their weapons on coalition allies; the daily loss of civilian lives to war's ravages and the continuing ability of insurgent forces to inflict disproportionate havoc on the far more powerful Western military....

6/15 Crisis for US 'Arc of Crisis' Strategy Deepens

US STRATEGY MANIPULATES ANTI-US RESISTANCE INTO "SECTARIAN WARS"

US strategy in the Muslim World after 9/11
2004 Rand Corporation Study Conducted on behalf of the US Air Force www.rand.org/ pubs/ research_briefs/ RB151/ index1.html
Angel Rabasa, RAND senior policy analyst, is the lead author of the 567-page study “US strategy in the Muslim World after 9/11” (December 2004) suggested exploiting Sunni, Shiite and Arab, non-Arab divides to promote US policy objectives in the Muslim world.
In light of 9/11 and the global war on terrorism, it is important for U.S. leaders to develop a shaping strategy toward the Muslim world. The U.S. Air Force asked RAND Project AIR FORCE (PAF) to study the trends most likely to affect U.S. interests and security in the Muslim world. Researchers developed an analytic framework to identify the major ideological orientations within Islam, to examine critical cleavages between Muslim groups, and to trace long-term and immediate causes of Islamic radicalism. This framework will help U.S. policymakers understand the political and military strategies available to respond to changing conditions in this critical part of the world.
Attitudes Toward Democracy and Nonviolence Are Key Markers
The Muslim world encompasses a band of countries stretching from Western Africa to the Southern Philippines as well as diaspora communities throughout the globe. Researchers developed a typology to differentiate Muslim religious and political currents according to their overarching ideologies, political and legal orientations, preferred forms of government, attitudes toward human rights, social agendas, links to terrorism, and propensity for violence. Based on these markers, Muslim groups fall within a spectrum ...

“They quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type,” the officer said. Firsthand experience with these systems, and horror at their capabilities, is what drove the career intelligence officer to provide PowerPoint PRISM slides and supporting materials to The Washington Post...

...London’s Guardian newspaper reported Friday that GCHQ, Britain’s equivalent of the National Security Agency, has also been secretly gathering intelligence from the same internet companies through an operation set up by the NSA...An April 2013 internal presentation of 41 briefing slides on PRISM intended for senior analysts in NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, described the tool as the most prolific contributor to the President’s Daily Brief, which last year cited PRISM data in 1,477 items. According to slides and other supporting materials obtained by The Post, “NSA reporting increasingly relies on PRISM” as its leading source of raw material, accounting for nearly 1 in 7 intelligence reports...a remarkable figure in an agency that measures annual intake in the trillions of communications... all the more striking because NSA, whose lawful mission is foreign intelligence, reaches deep into the machinery of US companies that host hundreds of millions of US--held accounts on US soil...

US & UK Syria invasion and assassination plot
Documents: White House and No 10 conspired over oil-fuelled invasion plan
The Guardian - Ben Fenton - September 27, 2003, http://albizri.com/index_e.htm
Nearly 50 years before the war in Iraq, Britain and America sought a secretive "regime change" in another Arab country they accused of spreading terror and threatening the west's oil supplies, by planning the invasion of Syria and the assassination of leading figures....Newly discovered documents show in 1957 Harold Macmillan and President Dwight Eisenhower approved a CIA-MI6 plan to stage fake border incidents as an excuse for an invasion by Syria's pro-western neighbours, then to "eliminate" the most influential triumvirate in Damascus...
Driving the call for action was CIA Middle East chief Kermit Roosevelt, grandson of former president Theodore Roosevelt....By 1957, despite America's opposition to the Suez move, President Eisenhower felt he could no longer ignore the danger of Syria becoming a centre for Moscow to spread communism throughout the Middle East. He and Mr Macmillan feared Syria would destabilise pro-western neighbours by exporting terrorism and encouraging internal dissent. More importantly, Syria also had control of one of the main oil arteries of the Middle East, the pipeline which connected pro-western Iraq's oilfields to Turkey.

4/23 Boston, p.2: Deep Central Asia Involvement, Major Domestic Moves

digest commentary: this issue will dig deeper into why & how Boston is in the crux of the global domination war and its 'homeland' war front.
The 'false flag' Boston operation takes domestic 'fascism with a friendly face' to a very desperate new level. As it attempts to salvage its failed agenda internationally, the US must preemptively manufacture public opinion to not only accept but actively embrace a patriotic clampdown, preparing for what analysts/strategists predict will be serious 'civil unrest'

Millions since 911 have acted as if they have the personal option to 'opt out', or to 'hope' in, the electoral con-game, and avoid eloquently deployed fascist reality they refuse to see. Time's up. Soft & hard power 'velvet gloves' are being ripped off. Tonight's strategic communications aka news, in different styles designed for different 'socio-economic' audiences, NPR, ABC, NBC, assures us we're 'resilient' and have 'we've won the battle', but, the war to keep us safe continues, the brain-shot, heavily drugged, if not dead, younger brother is 'communicating', and everyone the 'terrorist brothers' were ever in contact with anywhere in the world, will be 'contacted'.
