After this man caused thousands to falsely react in the stock market and it would seem conveniently in the middle of the latest Gallup Poll, He gets a month unpaid vacation…
but of course they would have to FINALLY do something, wouldn’t they?
And the left still embrace and believe what these people put out as truth. Don’t get me wrong, not all people are Brian Williams but between these people looking to enhance their careers and outlets so bias in their messaging that they let these people operate begs the question… Are you really learning the facts? We certainly know that the left has been seriously deceived over the condescending and holier than thou Misogyny rhetoric from the left…
Just how many of the anti-trump articles, written by people who either dislike trump or align their writings to the flavor of their editor do you read… How many of them have been protect from their lies for years? Rogue traders on wall street are embraced, until they cost their employer money or credibility… then they get thrown under the bus…
“Ross, citing an unnamed confidant of Flynn, the former national security adviser, had reported Friday that then-candidate Donald Trump had directed Flynn to make contact with the Russians. That would have been an explosive development in the ongoing investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the election. But hours later, Ross clarified his report on the evening news, saying that his source now said Trump had done so not as a candidate, but as president-elect. At that point, he said, Trump had asked Flynn to contact the Russians about issues including working together to fight ISIS.”
“He also, though, has drawn criticism for previous errors. In just one example, ABC had to apologize in 2012 when Ross reported on “Good Morning America” that James Holmes, the suspect in the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, might be connected to the tea party, based on a name listed on a web page. It turned out to be a different “Jim Holmes.” Ross was criticized for politicizing the story with the error.”
I wish he had elaborated on this tweet some more. “He could have added that it is this kind of journalist sloppiness that relies on unvetted anonymous sources that cost people a great deal of money and reputation… People say that I am trying to kill the first amendment but I haven’t told these people to print this junk. If they want to regain their integrity… Print an objective article with vetted information…”
Me too. He could have added that Brian Ross has a history of telling lies and spreading fake news. Ross was last used by his deep state pals to lie to us into going to war with Saddam Hussien over fake WMDs so we could invade Iraq.
Nobody was pushing the false WMD narrative more than Bush himself. Remember he had declared while he was yet governor of Texas that his father screwed up when he had the chance but as president if he ever got the chance to go into Iraq he was going all the way to Baghdad, and taking Saddam out. Which is precisely what he did. Remember this, “do we have to wait for the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud”.
Just because he said daddy screwed up does not mean that he harbored the desire to start a war. Keep in mind what you say because it was all of the intelligence agencies you seem to keep faith with over Trump told Bush that 1) he had WMD and 2) had the ability to reconstitute production. The same intelligence community that you believe so much over Trump… and the same deep state operative that you count on to keep trump in line… Perhaps no one wanted a war in Iraq more than the people who pushed the intelligence in the first place… Perhaps those same people are feeling a little threatened by a Trump presidency…
How quickly Iraq will obtain its first nuclear weapon depends on when it acquires sufficient weapons-grade fissile material.
If Baghdad acquires sufficient weapons-grade fissile material from abroad, it could make a nuclear weapon within a year.
Without such material from abroad, Iraq probably would not be able to make a weapon until the last half of the decade.
Iraq's aggressive attempts to obtain proscribed high-strength aluminum tubes are of significant concern. All intelligence experts agree that Iraq is seeking nuclear weapons and that these tubes could be used in a centrifuge enrichment program. Most intelligence specialists assess this to be the intended use, but some believe that these tubes are probably intended for conventional weapons programs.
Based on tubes of the size Iraq is trying to acquire, a few tens of thousands of centrifuges would be capable of producing enough highly enriched uranium for a couple of weapons per year.
As a person who lies in his posts you should chose more carefully as your so easily exposed.
Was something Bush was thinking about while he was still the underachieving governor of Texas.
The Raw Story
The Path of War Timeline -
January 26, 1998 The Project for a New American Century urges President Clinton to oust Saddam Hussein. Among the eighteen signers are Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and John Bolton. (New American Century)
In 1999, Mickey Herskowitz is hired to ghostwrite a campaign autobiography for George W. Bush, an assignment that was later withdrawn. Herskowitz later spoke about Bush for an article by journalist Russ Baker: “He was thinking about invading Iraq in 1999… It was on his mind. He said to me: ‘One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief.’ ”
"According to Herskowitz, Bush’s beliefs on Iraq were based in part on a notion dating back to the Reagan White House – ascribed in part to now-vice president Dick Cheney, Chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee under Reagan. “Start a small war. Pick a country where there is justification you can jump on, go ahead and invade.”
"Bush’s circle of pre-election advisers had a fixation on the political capital that British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher collected from the Falklands War. Said Herskowitz: “They were just absolutely blown away, just enthralled by the scenes of the troops coming back, of the boats, people throwing flowers at [Thatcher] and her getting these standing ovations in Parliament and making these magnificent speeches.” (Guerrilla News Network)
December 1999 In December 1999, "Bush surprises veteran political chroniclers with his blunt pronouncements about Saddam at a six-way New Hampshire primary event: “It was a gaffe-free evening for the rookie front-runner, till he was asked about Saddam’s weapons stash,” a Boston Globe reporter penned. ‘I’d take ‘em out,’ [Bush] grinned cavalierly, ‘take out the weapons of mass destruction…I’m surprised he’s still there,” said Bush of the despot who remains in power after losing the Gulf War to Bush Jr.’s father… It remains to be seen if that offhand declaration of war was just Texas talk, a sort of locker room braggadocio, or whether it was Bush’s first big clinker.” (Boston Globe; Also Russ Baker)
So are you saying that Iraq was a predetermined desire to finish what daddy started or that it was a target of opportunity in the continued fulfillment of the foreign policy objective of the established state war machine and a cash cow opportunity for Cheney to push for personal wealth?
With PNAC behind him, having declared that all Bush needed was another “Pearl Harbor” and he could push the entire neocon agenda thru, he hardly needed Ross pushing anything:
The threat posed by US terrorism to the security of nations and individuals was outlined in prophetic detail in a document written more than two years ago and disclosed only recently. What was needed for America to dominate much of humanity and the world’s resources, it said, was “some catastrophic and catalysing event - like a new Pearl Harbor”.
The attacks of 11 September 2001 provided the “new Pearl Harbor”, described as “the opportunity of ages”. The extremists who have since exploited 11 September come from the era of Ronald Reagan, when far-right groups and “think-tanks” were established to avenge the American “defeat” in Vietnam.
Interestingly, to the year 60 years apart 2 surprise (wink wink) attacks on the homeland kills three thousand Americans and launches us into profitable wars for the MIC.
