So what are they so desperate to hide on this achingly beautiful outcrop — which the U.S. Navy, seemingly blind to the irony, has renamed ‘The Footprint to Freedom’? It is a question that has acquired fresh urgency with the release last week of the U.S Senate’s bombshell report on the CIA’s use of torture against suspected terrorists.
Given the weight of evidence proving that Diego Garcia was — at the very least — a key staging post in the U.S. rendition and torture programme, it had been widely expected to feature in the dossier, thus exposing Britain’s involvement beyond doubt.
That the island was not mentioned once in almost 500 heavily redacted pages has merely heightened suspicion of an MI6-orchestrated cover-up.
Use of attack Dogs are a favourite of sadistic Israelis against Palestinians/Arabs
Rape dogs used by US in Afghanistan
‘…At a local hotel, a former Canadian soldier and private security contractor named Jack told Jurgen Todenhoefer (pictured) why he could not longer stand working in Bagram. “It’s not my thing when Afghans get raped by dogs,” Jack remarked………………………’
“Afghan prisoners were tied face down on small chairs,” Jack said. Then fighting dogs entered the torture chamber. “If the prisoners did not say anything useful, each dog got to take a turn on them,” Jack told Todenhoefer. “After procedure like these, they confessed everything. They would have even said that they killed Kennedy without even knowing who he was.”……………’
‘…………A former member of parliament representing the right-of-center Christian Democratic Union from 1972 to 1990, Todenhoefer transformed into a fervent anti-war activist after witnessing the Soviet destruction of Afghanistan during the 1980’s.
His journalism has taken him to Iraq and back to Afghanistan, where he has presented accounts of Western military interventions from the perspective of indigenous guerrilla forces. Unsurprisingly, his books have invited enormous controversy for presenting a sharp counterpoint to the war on terror’s narrative. In Germany, Todenhofer is roundly maligned by pro-Israel and US-friendly figures as a “vulgar pacifist” and an apologist for Islamic extremism. But those who have been on the other side of Western guns tend to recognize his journalism as an accurate portrayal of their harsh reality.
LASHA DARKMOON COMMENTS: It is no surprise that Todenhofer should be “roundly maligned by pro-Israel and US-friendly figures.” This is because any exposé of America’s torture regime, whether at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib or Bagram base, invariably leads to the subject of Israeli torture advisors standing by to offer hot tips to the Americans on the best torture techniques. “The CIA did not just emulate Israel’s legal system to sanction torture,” we read in a recent report, “but it copied the same Israeli torture methods.” (See Israel — America’s Torture Consultant“)
Though Todenhofer’s account of dogs being used to rape prisoners at Bagram is unconfirmed, the practice is not without precedent. Female political prisoners of former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s jails have described their torturers using dogs to rape them.
More recently, Lawrence Wright, the author of the acclaimed history of Al Qaeda, “The Looming Tower,” told National Public Radio’s Terry Gross, “One of my FBI sources said that he had talked to an Egyptian intelligence officer who said that they used the dogs to rape the prisoners. And it would be hard to tell you how humiliating it would be to any person, but especially in Islamic culture where dogs are such a lowly form of life. It’s, you know, that imprint will never leave anybody’s mind.’……….’
‘……..“Guantanamo is a paradise if you compare it with Bagram,” Muhammad said.
Waheed Mozhdah, a well-known political analyst and author based in Kabul, echoed Muhammad’s account. “Bagram is worse than Guantanamo,” Mozdah told me, “and all the crimes, even the most cruel ones like the dog story, are well known here but most people prefer to not talk about it.”
Hometown for soldiers, hellhole for inmates
It is hard to imagine what more hideous acts of torment remain submerged in the chronicles of America’s international gulag archipelago. Atrocities alleged to a German journalist by a former detainee at the US military’s Bagram Airbase in Kabul, Afghanistan, suggest that the worst horrors may be too much for the public to stomach.
Brutal and bloody provocations are a tool of choice of USA's politics. US intelligence greyhounds have taken a hand in white powder from Iraq, in September 11 attacks and torture. These are not conspiracy theories - this is real politics, President of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems and military analyst Konstantin Sivkov believes.
"They have recently published the torture report in the United States, even though those tortures were not happening on the territory of the United States. Only 500 pages of the 6,000-page report have been published. It is unthinkable what US special services were doing to those suspects after the attacks of the Twin Towers. State Department officials said that no one would be punished for any of those tortures. Do you think that the world community will turn a blind eye on that again and continue to admire American democracy?"
Human experimentation was a core feature of the CIA’s torture program. The experimental nature of the interrogation and detention techniques is clearly evident in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of its investigative report, despite redactions (insisted upon by the CIA) to obfuscate the locations of these laboratories of cruel science and the identities of perpetrators.
At the helm of this human experimentation project were two psychologists hired by the CIA, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen. They designed interrogation and detention protocols that they and others applied to people imprisoned in the agency’s secret “black sites.”
"...derived from experiments on dogs..."?!?!?
Sorry, will you run that one by me just one more time please?!?
How can dogs provide actionable intelligence, to be "extracted", after they have become totally submissive, through the process of "learned helplessness"?!?
Where is the moral outrage, please, in this country, that such a thing should be allowed to come to fruition?!?
And I say this because humankind has known, since the Catholic Inquisition, that torture only gets the person to say what the torturer wants them to say in order to get the torture to stop.
Torture produces no actionable intelligence; only confessions, period, end of discussion.
And IF the US was in fact a moral country, these men, alongside that unholy trinity of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, would be cooling their heels in a prison, awaiting a trial for torture, and crimes against humanity.
And until and unless that happens, the US will simply sink deeper into the morass of dictatorship, more unwinnable wars, and the persecution, and jailing, of whistle blowers and the independent media, working hard to tell the truth, and not for financial gain.
A harsh wind blows across this country, and there is a collective shiver up and down the collective spine of every thinking American.
And the reason for that is a very clear understanding of the Biblical injuction about "That which you sow, you shall also reap."
This country has sown the seeds of death, torture, and war for private financial gain.
And what do we see this December, just days away from a celebration of Christmas?!? More wars, and rumors of wars, both fiscal (as in the agreement with the Saudi government to keep oil prices artificially low to destroy Russia's economy), and shooting wars as well.
I care very deeply about the future of this country, but feel that we are moving in absolutely the wrong directions, in both domestic and foreign policies.
And unfortunately, one of the key prerequisites for working for the last several administrations has been a pathological, intellectually myopic inability to think any action through to its logical conclusion.
Looking at the current situation in Iraq; in Afghanistan; in Libya; and in Yemen, one can very clearly see the outcome of this kind of thinking.

On another similar topic, hope about this analysis - very different view to that of the mass media:
On December 19, American academic and radio talk-show host, Kevin Barrett, Ph.D, posted at the Veterans Today news website that the massacre at Peshawar military school was carried out by the “American Deep State and its allies India and Israel. Listen to Jim Fetzer comments on Sydney hostage taking and the massacre in Peshawar.
“The US empire – sorry I should call it Bankster Empire – created the Pakistani Taliban to destabilize Pakistan. The ultimate aim is to take down Pakistan’s nuclear capability. Secondary aim: demonize Islam in general and Empire’s Afghan enemies in particular,” Barrett said.
“Israel and India eagerly joined the project. They both have their own reasons wanting to destabilize, dismember and destroy nuclear-armed Pakistan,” Barrett added.
“Today it is the Indian intelligence, RAW – unleashed by the genocidal Islamophobe Narendra Modi – that has the most hand-on control on the so-called “Pakistani Taliban”. But the US Deep State, with its deep pockets with narcotics trafficking, still in the picture,” Barrett said.
Also deeply suspect is the ‘suicide-bomber’ meme, as suicide is forbidden in Islam, as it is in Christianity. The Ziostate apparently aided both sides in the Sri lanka civil war, where coincidentally(?) modern ‘suicide-bombing’ began. As Patton said ‘No-one ever won a war by dying for his country – you win by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his.’

The Zionist Coup D'Etat in Ukraine
"Their news report does not say anything about the United States coup d’etat in Ukraine that was occurring at the same time as that, when Crimeans, who had voted overwhelmingly for the Ukrainian President whom the U.S. was now overthrowing, were publicly demonstrating against the overthrow, and were pleading for Crimea, which Nikita Krushchev had donated from Russia to Ukraine in 1954, to be taken back into the Russian fold by Russia and no longer associated with Ukraine. Also, nothing is said in this Bloomberg news report about two Gallup polls which were taken in Crimea, one in 2013 before the coup, and the other in 2014 after the coup, with Crimeans both times overwhelmingly self-identifying as being "Russians" and neither "Crimeans" nor "Ukrainians," and in which they overwhelmingly approved of Russia,"
Bloomberg News Blames Putin for Russia’s Economic Problems
By Eric Zuesse, Global Research, December 19, 2014
On December 17th, Bloomberg News bannered "Putin’s Secret Gamble on Reserves Backfires Into Currency Crisis" and reported that, "As President Putin exulted at the Winter Olympics in Sochi 10 months ago, aides assured him Russia was rich enough to withstand the financial repercussions from a possible incursion into Ukraine, according to two officials involved in the talks. That conclusion now looks like a grave miscalculation.
Russia has driven interest rates to punishing levels and spent at least $87 billion, or 17 percent, of its foreign-exchange reserves trying to prevent a collapse in the ruble from spiraling into a panic. So far, nothing has worked."
The team of three Bloomberg news reporters write there that, "Putin now confronts the nation’s most serious economic crisis since 1998," and that the reason is "Putin’s pride." They say that, "When rising crude prices were firing the economy, Russia’s swelling reserves became a symbol of economic might and a point of pride for Putin."
This pride by Putin, they assert, came to the fore when he discussed in February with his advisors the following question: "Could Russia afford the economic blowback from taking over Crimea?"
Bloomberg reports that Putin then "was told Russia had enough foreign currency reserves to annex Crimea and withstand any sanctions that might follow." This, they say, was the "grave miscalculation" that "emboldened Putin to annex Crimea," and that in "Russia has driven interest rates to punishing levels."
Their news report does not say anything about the United States coup d’etat in Ukraine that was occurring at the same time as that, when Crimeans, who had voted overwhelmingly for the Ukrainian President whom the U.S. was now overthrowing, were publicly demonstrating against the overthrow, and were pleading for Crimea, which Nikita Krushchev had donated from Russia to Ukraine in 1954, to be taken back into the Russian fold by Russia and no longer associated with Ukraine.
Also, nothing is said in this Bloomberg news report about two Gallup polls which were taken in Crimea, one in 2013 before the coup, and the other in 2014 after the coup, with Crimeans both times overwhelmingly self-identifying as being "Russians" and neither "Crimeans" nor "Ukrainians," and in which they overwhelmingly approved of Russia, and disapproved of the United States.
Also, nothing is said there about Russia’s Black Sea Fleet, which the U.S-installed coup-government wanted to kick out, but which had been based in Crimea ever since 1783, and which has always been crucial to Russia’s military defense and strategy. This Bloomberg news report deals strictly with Putin’s "pride" and his "miscalculation," which caused him to decide for an "incursion into Ukraine" whose aim was "taking over Crimea."
Investigative historian Eric Zuesse is the author, most recently, of They’re Not Even Close: The Democratic vs. Republican Economic Records, 1910-2010, and of CHRIST’S VENTRILOQUISTS: The Event that Created Christianity.
In a December 19th interview in the Russian magazine Kommersant, George Friedman, who is the Founder and CEO of Stratfor, the ‘Shadow CIA’ firm, says of the overthrow of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych that occurred on February 22nd of 2014: “It really was the most blatant coup in history.” Perhaps he is saying this because of the videos that were uploaded to the Web which showed it to be so, but this statement by him contradicts the description that is asserted by the U.S. White House and the European Union, and the Western press, which description is that Yanukovych’s overthrow was instead just the result of the U.S. Government’s $5+ billion expense since 1991 to establish ‘democracy’ in Ukraine.
Webmaster's Commentary: The US government's narrative, and what actually took place in the coup d'etat, orchestrated by the IMF, the US, and Western Europe, are worlds apart here.
Yes, Viktor Yanukovych, the last duly elected president of Ukraine was so crooked that he had to screw his socks on in the morning; however Poroshenko is absolutely no better, only Western-centric.
The United States is behind the February coup in Kiev, which came in response to Russia’s stance on Syria, said George Friedman, the founder and CEO of Stratfor, a global intelligence company. Russia has repeatedly said that the coup in Kiev was organized by the US, Friedman told Kommersantnewspaper. Indeed, it was the most overt coup in history, the political analyst stressed.
And let us be very clear on one issue; after the coup, Crimea, through what was observed to a free and fair referendum, decided to join the Russian Federation; Russia did absolutely nothing wrong here, and traditionally, before the 1950's, Crimea was long considered a part of Russia.
Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan's long familiarity with Saudi Arabia, owing to the time he spent there as the CIA station chief in Riyadh in the 1990s and his knowledge of Saudi oil operations, has paid off. Petroleum industry insiders claim that Brennan's agents inside Saudi Aramco convinced the firm's management and the Saudi Oil Ministry to begin fracking operations in order to stimulate production in Saudi Arabia's oldest oil fields. The Saudis, who are not known for their hands-on knowledge of their nation’s own oil industry, agreed to what became an oil pricing catastrophe which would not only affect Saudi Arabia but oil producing nations around the world from Russia and Venezuela to Nigeria and Indonesia.

I wonder just how long this criminal fraternity is going t be protected by an equally perverted police and judiciary who are also implicated in this moral degeneracy that inflicted untold trauma and deaths n so many young innocent victims. All these degenerates need t be locked up and punished as no one must be above the law, n matter who they are, be they royalty, celebrity, judiciary, police, social services etc.. their victims must get justice. I hope all these Political and VIP Elite are exposed, shamed and jailed, be they a member of the Royal Family, or Politicians [Leon Brittan, Lord Janner and other thus far unnamed perverts etc..]
Scotland Yard says it is investigating the murders of three boys by what is now known as a ‘VIP sex ring’ suspected to include several high-ranking military officials and politicians.
Detectives say they are looking into accounts of the murders as recited by an abuse victim whom they have described as ‘a credible source’.
According to a shocking account by the abuse victim, who is referred to as ‘Nick’, a Conservative MP had throttled a 12-year-old boy in a depraved sex party at a luxury town house in London sometime in the early 80s.

1936: ZIONISTS WHINE ABOUT 'HOLOCAUST' 7 YEARS BEFORE IT 'HAPPENS'
False alarm bells regarding the deaths of "millions of Jews" rang during both World War I and the Russian Civil War which followed. During the loud sound and smoky fury of wartime, such tall tales of genocide at least appeared to be somewhat plausible to the superficial reader of the newspapers which carried such fabricated accounts. But during the peacetime of the 1930's, even the most dim-witted newspaper worshipper would never believe such tales. Yet, as we shall soon see, that didn't stop the audacious Zionists from trying.
As the Berlin Olympics of 1936 approaches, Adolf Hitler has been in power for nearly 3 & 1/2 years. The initial anti-German hate campaign of 1933-34 has subsided as the world now realizes that the atrocity propaganda was false. Though removed from high positions in the press, banking, government and academia, the Jews who remain in Germany prosper in the revitalized economy. During the 1930's, 75% of German Jewry is middle-class or richer. Even the legendary Max Warburg, though stripped of his dominance over Germany's Central Bank, chose to stay in Germany until 1938, making serious "bank" the whole time.
As for the rest of Europe's Jews, they continue on, unmolested and generally more successful that their Gentile counterparts. The Jew Leon Blum has just been elected Prime Minister of France. The government of the Soviet Union is loaded with Jews, and so is the ruling class of Great Britain. Even in mildly 'anti-Semitic Poland' and Fascist Italy, the Jews are not being bothered. In short, just 3 years before the outbreak of the German-Polish War, the European Jews of the 1930's are safe and sound, with many of the ones in booming Germany doing very well.
The Jews of Europe are not being "persecuted" in 1936!
1- Max Warburg is making lots of money in Hitler's Germany
2- Leon Blum is elected Prime Minister of France
3- Lazar Kaganovich is controlling Stalin's Russia
4- Baron Rothschild is the most powerful man in Britain
5- Alfred Tarski: an acclaimed mathematician and scholar in Poland
So, given the good treatment and relative success of European Jewry, it is nothing less than astonishing, jaw-dropping even, to discover a May 31, 1936 issue of The New York Times carrying the bold claim of a "European Holocaust" affecting "millions of Jews". How can this be? As even the High Priests of Holohoaxianty will admit, the wartime internment of Jews didn't begin until the latter half of 1941. The alleged mass executions are said to have started in 1943, ramping up to full-scale genocide by 1944. Oops. It looks like some over-eager Zionist went off the script and let the fake cat out of the bag a full 6-7 years too soon!
This ridiculous shock claim of a "European Holocaust", made by a group of "Christians" fronting for the Chicago and New York Zionists, forms the basis of the case for the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine; which the British had conquered as part of a World War I payoff to the Zionists for their help in dragging the United States into the war on Britain's side. Not content with mass immigration to British-ruled Palestine (The British Manadate), the Zionists, speaking through their "Christian" front men and dupes of the shadowy Chicago-based 'Pro-Palestine Federation of America', now want the British to crack down on the oppressed Arabs and give the Jews a nation of their own. ………………………………….’
