The US government hackers

I really love John Stauber.

If only the feared, loathed and investigated , , as much as ! But then they would not be the MSM, would they?

He is so right.

Instead, with Barack, it was attack anyone raising questions.

Reading the latest WikiLeaks (CIA hacking) makes me believe Sharyl Attkisson's computer was hacked (the CBS News reporter -- at that time).

I wondered if she had anything to say about the revelations in WikiLeaks' latest release?

So I checked out her Twitter feed.

I did not read Stonewalled -- didn't even know about it until right now.

Her new book, The Smear comes out in June.  I will get that when it comes out and blog about it here.

If Stonewalled is at my Barnes & Noble, I'll pick it up this weekend.  (I've been busy and haven't been to Barnes & Noble since before Christmas.)

As I've said all week, the WikiLeaks revelations are important.  We need to be paying attention.  Here are some WikiLeaks Tweets:

This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for Thursday:

Thursday, March 9, 2017.  Chaos and violence continue, The Mosul Slog continues, War Criminal Tony Blair ventures out in public, MSNBC celebrates Mad Maddie Albright, and much more.

Starting in England . . .

Link to headline article

THE DAILY MIRROR offers a photo essay of the ceremony.  SKY NEWS notes, "Around 2,500 invited guests, including veterans representatives, service personnel, bereaved families, charity workers, civil servants and politicians attended a Drumhead Service at Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall."  Nick Higham (BBC NEWS) adds:

The event has been overshadowed by a row over the failure to include the families of the 682 service personnel who died in Iraq and Afghanistan among the 2,500 invited to the ceremony.
One widow of a soldier killed in Afghanistan said they had been snubbed; another called the decision completely crass.
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron called on the prime minister to apologise for what he called a careless oversight.
Mrs May said charities and groups representing the bereaved had been asked to put forward names of attendees.
But the chairman of the War Widows Association told the BBC that while she'd been invited herself she'd not been asked to nominate others, and that the Ministry of Defence should have contacted all the families involved directly. 

While various family members were not allowed to attend, War Hawk Tony Blair was in attendance, no doubt feeling that pride and joy that only a War Criminal can when he's allowed to survey the people dead because of him.

Can anyone explain why Tony Blair has been invited to the Iraq/Afghanistan tribute to dead & injured soldiers,
but not their families?

Sickening Tony Blair is at the service for the new memorial to soldiers killed in Iraq & Afghanistan today

Tony Blair arrives at the Iraq/Afganistan memorial service, a few minutes ago and takes a front seat. This man has the skin of a  rhinoceros

The only fitting memorial to Iraq & Afghanistan would be to have Tony Blair at the Hague! Watch 's >

Tony always thinks the blood will wash off but it never will.


So the United Kingdom erected a memorial.

What did the US government do again?

Oh, that's right.

A parade.

Remember Barack Obama was president and the drawdown was taking place at the end of 2011 so veterans were asking for a parade and Barack said there would be one but not just yet and . . .

Oh, that's right, he left office without ever giving them their parade.

Because he's a liar.

Why didn't they get their parade?

And why didn't anyone ever hold the little prince to his promises?

Poor little Barack, rumors that he spied on Trump, rumors that an Iraqi terrorist was let into the country and captured before the election but Barack insisted he be let go because he thought the news would hurt Hillary's campaign, so many rumors.

Barack never did a memorial, never did a parade, never kept his word.


Louis Michael, who commentates on TV programmes on the Channel 4 TV show Gogglebox, took to Twitter, to say Blair’s attendance was “like Hitler turning up at a Holocaust memorial. Tony Blair should be hiding his head in shame, instead he adds insult to injury.”

War Criminals roam free for years until, like Henry Kissinger, they're scared to leave the country for fear of being arrested.

Yesterday was International Women's Day.

A question was posed on Twitter.

do you recognize that women in Yemen, Syria and Iraq which are being killed by western weapons have rights too?

Clearly some did not.

That would include Alan Greenspan's wife Andrea Mitchell who, still nursing her vaginal longings for a President Hillary, made due with another War Hawk.

On MSNBC brought in Madeleine Albright, who once called deaths of 500k Iraqi kids "worth it"

For Andrea, sprawled out on the billions her husband raked in, Mad Maddie is the ideal guest.

Bring on a War Criminal.  MSNBC was never a left network.

It's always been a centerist Democrat network.

And so Mad Maddie is brought on to disrespect the office of the president.

Let's be really clear on this, Donald Trump is the sitting president.

Any private citizen can and should say what they think.

But former government officials?


That's disrespectful.

He hasn't even been in office a year and a cloud has been immediately created -- which was the point.

Just as the point of the special prosecutor would be to find something, anything, a blow job?, on Donald.

David Brock should never have been allowed to move from the right.

But it's how corrupt we are on the left that we allowed him to take a leadership role.

'The resistance' is nothing but a campaign tool for an upcoming election.

And Mad Maddie Alrbirght should rot in hell -- which, appearing on MSNBC with Andrea Scrawny Arms Mitchell, probably is a very close earthly approximation.

The Mosul Slog hit day 143 today.

How's that going?

map update.

Green= liberated and under forces control.
Orange= frontline clashes.
White= controlled areas.

Still ongoing.

Meanwhile, AFP reports, "Two suicide bombers attacked a celebration being held the night before a wedding north of Tikrit, killing at least 26 people, a police officer said on Thursday."  And ALMASDAR NEWS notes, "Over 40 people were killed in central Iraq on Thursday when two Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists carried out a suicide mission south of Baiji. According to the Islamic State’s official media wing, the two terrorists detonated their suicide vests at an Iraqi Army gathering point inside the village of Al-Hajjaj."
