Crown Colludes With EDO MBM Lies In High Court

24-10-2007 10:50

New information released under Freedom of Information Act shows how the Government assisted Brighton arms company EDO MBM's lies to the High Court in November 2005.

The Attorney General’s senior barrister provided at the time what appeared to be official confirmation of the company’s statements that it had never supplied Israel with military components, but this confirmation was nothing but an uncritical acceptance of the company's own argument without any evidence.

In this way the Crown colluded with the company to keep EDO's arms sales to Israel secret, and protect the comapny from a US Government legal action.

"From Guy Fawkes to 911" UK tour - 400 Years of State Sponsored Terror

22-10-2007 15:45

U.S. 'Terrorologist' author Webster Tarpley tours Britain starting this tour in London on Guy Fawkes night. History is full of examples of elements within the state using fake 'terrorism' to drive the political classes and people into the hands of despots and as an excuse for the loss of civil liberties. Since 9/11, evidence has come to light that contradicts that day's infamous terrorist attacks. American historian Webster Tarpley argues that this is nothing new, serious inconsistencies have been associated with terror attacks for hundreds of years throughout the Western world.

In his lectures, Elias will outline the moral and legal foundations for the right to the truth, the obligations of states to thoroughly investigate mass murder, and will illustrate the extent to which US authorities have violated their international obligations to establish the truth about what happened on 11 September 2001.

Elias’ empirical approach, devoid of speculation, provides powerful conceptual tools to those who are committed to defend democracy and the rule of civilised law at both the domestic and international level.

18-10-2007 13:35

"Such constant rhetoric and legislation concerning conscription, in addition to warmongering with Iran and the continuation of the "war on terror" mantra has led some, including Former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration Paul Craig Roberts , to warn that absent any real threat or attack, the Bush administration could stage false flag events and terror attacks in order to reinstate the draft, enhance military presence in the middle east and ultimately attack Iran."
