The US led war in the broader Middle East Central Asian region has the purpose of gaining control over more than sixty percent of the world's supplies of oil and natural gas. The Anglo-American oil giants also seek to gain control over oil and gas pipeline routes out of the region.
04-01-2007 18:48The demand for congressional hearings on Cointelpro, critical to the
potential release of our political prisoners, has been a long-standing
one. We raised it with the Congressional Black Caucus in a meeting
