Gelli, Delle Chiaie, Peron & ‘Cocaine Politics’

19-02-2009 13:58

Gelli & freshman freemason Peron
The following story looks at a dark chapter of South America’s history: the rise of right-wing military dictatorships in the 1970s and their enduring ties to the cocaine trade and international neo-fascists.

Because of the CIA’s dealings with many of these drug-tainted figures, this history largely has been kept from the American people. Indeed, while shielding CIA assets from criticism, the U.S. government has shifted the cocaine blame to leftist "narco-terrorists."

This pattern is repeating itself today in Colombia as the Clinton administration embarks on a major counterinsurgency campaign against "drug-financed Marxist guerrillas."

Who's Telling the Truth About Iran's Nuclear Program?

19-02-2009 11:06

Since February 2003, Iran's nuclear program has undergone what the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) itself admits to be the most intrusive inspection in its entire history. After thousands of hours of inspections by some of the most experienced IAEA experts, the Agency has verified time and again that (1) there is no evidence of a nuclear weapons program in Iran, and (2) all the declared nuclear materials have been accounted for; there has been no diversion of such materials to non-peaceful purposes.
