Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...

Family and friends of 17-year-old Hunter Brittain have been protesting nearly a week and demanding answers from police after an officer shot and killed him as he worked on his truck. So far, the police have remained tight-lipped and have refused to release any details. Brittain’s friend, however, who was with him the morning he was killed, is speaking up — and his words describe what appears to be a blatant act of murder. On the morning he was killed, Brittain and his friend Jordan King, 16, were working on his truck’s transmission so Brittain could drive to work later that morning....

undercover beaten 696x366

The trial for three St. Louis cops who beat one of their own officers during an undercover operation begins this week, hoping to bring justice to several badge-toting thugs. The three officers in question—Dustin Boone, Steven Korte, and Christopher Myers—were part of what was called a “civil disobedience team” to crack down on violence at protests. Their tactics, however, involved beating up innocent protesters for filming them and this was found out after they beat a fellow cop, Luther Hall, who was undercover as a protester. In December 2011, St. Louis Police Officer Jason Stockley...

Don’t Start A Domestic Terror War, Impeach Trump For War Crimes In Yemen

COI_Logo

Connor Freeman, writer at The Libertarian Institute, returns to the show to discuss the Trump administration's decision to name the Houthi a terrorist organization. The Houthi govern most of Yemen's population. The designation will make it extremely difficult to bring aid into Yemen without violating US sanctions. The result will be pushing the country further in famine and adding to the massive quarter-million death toll. Democrats are ignoring Trump's many war crimes in Yemen to focus on exploiting the Capitol Riot. The Democrats, and most of the mainstream media, have engaged in wild...
