Captain Ward Boston’s obituary from the San Diego Union Tribune: Ward Boston Jr.; helped investigate ’67 Liberty attack:

http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20080619/news_1m19boston.html

By Blanca Gonzalez
…STAFF WRITER

Ward Boston Jr., a Navy fighter pilot during World War II who worked a stint as a special agent for the FBI, had his place in history set when he was a Navy attorney who helped investigate the 1967 Israeli attack on the Navy ship Liberty.

The attack on the U.S. intelligence ship, which killed 34 crewmen and wounded 172, was ruled an accident at the time. But several years ago, retired Capt. Boston declared that orders came from President Johnson to conclude it was a case of mistaken identity, despite evidence to the contrary.

The revelation rekindled a debate over whether the attack was deliberate, accidental or the result of negligence, and whether the United States and Israel covered up the truth.

Look what Admiral Thomas Moorer (former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) had to say during an interview!:

 
“I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn’t writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would RISE UP IN ARMS. Our citizens certainly don’t have any idea what goes on.” – Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, US Navy & Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff during interview on 24 August 1983

Israelis kill 2 more Palestinians today in what’s called relative calm

Just received the following from General (Ret) James David who is mentioned on the cover of the third edition of former Republican Congressman Paul Findley’s ‘They Dare to Speak Out’ book about the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby on the US political system and media:

Israelis kill 2 more Palestinians today in what’s called relative calm

Monday, August 1, 2011 11:10 AM
 
From: James David
 
Here we have the Israeli military making another raid in the West Bank, the same West Bank that Netanyahu says is not occupied, and shoots and kills two innocent Palestinians, a 22 year old law student and a  member of thePalestinian military intelligence.  There was no need for this violence and you can rest assured that the U.S. State Department will not come out to condemn this killing, something they would do in an instant if this was an Israeli settler killed by Palestinians.  You will neither see this in any of your local or national media or hear it on Headline News, something again that you would see if it were the other way around.  And now, if for some reason the Palestinians take revenge, you can rest assured that it will be labeled as a terrorist act and Israel’s response will be called retaliation.

2 Palestinians killed, 5 IDF soldiers wounded in West Bank raid

Israeli military spokeswoman says rioting broke out in Qalandiyah, a refugee camp near Ramallah, during ‘routine operation to arrest Palestinian suspects.’

By DPA Tags: West Bank IDF Palestinians

 
   

Israeli soldiers shot dead two Palestinians at Qalandiyah refugee camp, north of Jerusalem, early Monday morning, medical officials and witnesses said.

Witnesses and the Israeli military said the incident occurred as soldiers entered the camp shortly after midnight on a “search and arrest” operation. Their entry into the camp sparked rioting, with residents throwing rocks and bottles at them.

The witnesses said the soldiers opened fire “indiscriminately,” immediately killing Mutasem Awad, 22, a law student at a local university, who was shot in the head, and Ali Khalifeh, 23, member of the Palestinian military intelligence, who was shot in the stomach and died on his way to hospital in Ramallah. A third person was injured in the back but reported stable.

The soldiers left the camp after the incident, arresting a number of residents. The Israeli military said five soldiers were lightly injured by the rock-throwing.

Residents said that Israel brought up reinforcements to a military checkpoint south of the camp between Jerusalem and Ramallah, as camp residents prepare to bury the dead. Clashes are expected to follow the funeral.

A spokesperson for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the killing, stating that it was an “Israeli attempt to create an atmosphere of escalation ahead of September”.

The raid came as Palestinians mark the first day of the holy fast month of Ramadan.

 

Even General David Petraeus (now head of the CIA) conveyed to Congress that US support of Israel against the Palestinians was a threat to US:

Paul Craig Roberts: The President Can Just Ignore the Debt Ceiling Limit; Congress Rendered Superfluous?

Paul Craig Roberts: The President Can Just Ignore the Debt Ceiling Limit; Congress Rendered Superfluous?

July 23, 2011

KINGSTON, NY — The drama of it all! Will Congress refuse to raise the debt ceiling, forcing the US government to default and, thereby, immediately turning the “world’s only superpower” into a Third World country subject to an IMF austerity program? The markets are poised to explode upward in jubilation or collapse in despondency. Only in America could such fantasy dominate the news.

Does anyone really believe that the US government would default on its debt?

The debt ceiling/default “crisis” is nothing but political theater. The Republicans are employing scare tactics in their attempt to destroy the social safety net. The Democrats are playing along with the assault on “entitlements,” because it is what the majority of their large contributors want.

The presstitutes dish out the fantasy as if it were reality.

The US government will never default on its debt, because the government can print an endless stream of money to redeem its bonds.

The Republicans would love to gut Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, food stamps, unemployment insurance, education, and any and everything that benefits ordinary people. But do they want to gut their wars?

Do they want to gut American financial hegemony over the world?

Do they want the US dollar replaced as world reserve currency and oil to be priced in a different currency than the US dollar?

Of course they don’t. And if the Republicans are not smart enough to have figured out these consequences of their refusal to raise the debt ceiling, someone will tell them before it is too late.

But in truth it matters not whether the debt ceiling is raised. The Bush regime, with the complicity of the federal courts and Congress, established that the president has essentially unlimited powers not bound by law when the country is at war. The president does not have to follow the Constitution or obey statutory law. He can ignore the laws against spying on Americans without warrants. He can ignore the laws against torture and against indefinite detention without presenting charges in a court. He can even ignore the War Powers Act. Obviously, the president can also ignore the debt ceiling limit.

If banks are too-big-to-fail, so is the US government. All Obama has to do is to declare a national emergency, set aside the debt ceiling limit on national security grounds, and continue to issue debt. If the Federal Reserve were to resist, which it never would, Obama would simply nationalize the institution. If US presidents can take over the steel industry, or bring the industry to heel with the threat, it can take over the Federal Reserve.

If Congress fails to raise the debt ceiling, the only consequence would be the further erosion of Congress’ diminished power. Obama would say, and the public would accept, that Congress was unable to do its share of governing and had left the troops without supplies, the dollar unprotected, and was casting away American power.

The final result would be that Congress, having already lost the power to declare war, would lose the power of the purse. Henceforth budgets would be determined by the executive branch, which would also determine the proportions of expenditures covered by taxes, by borrowing, and by money creation.

The Republicans would have made Congress irrelevant like the Roman senate under the caesars.
