The Human Under the Numbers

sadako hospital 1955 noretouch

The story of Anne Frank is tragic. If not for the words that she wrote in her diary, she would be a digit of history. Her diary is relatable, and the thoughts that collected inside her being during a horrible time in history gives the reader an idea of who she was. She is immortalized because of the little things that she wrote, not because of any great deeds recorded by others. As a victim of tyranny she is remembered as an innocent murdered. She is a story found inside the numbers. Thanks to her diary, we have a human figure to know and mourn, despite the mechanized bureaucratic...

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...

Merrick Garland Should Start His Crusade Against White Supremacists By Re-Opening the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing Case

Given the recent stories about Merrick Garland’s experience at the helm of the Oklahoma City bombing prosecution and his own comments about prosecuting white supremacists should he be made Attorney General, I have some questions about Garland’s handling of the OKC bombing case. My questions: At an April 27, 1995 Preliminary Hearing, why did you “object” when defense attorneys noted that your witness, FBI agent Jon Hersley, testified that the Ryder truck carried “passengers” — plural? Your objection was overruled, and your witness confirmed that Timothy McVeigh was seated in the Ryder...

DNA Evidence of Second Bomber at Oklahoma City?

Oklahoma City Movie Image

A DNA profile forgotten about for twenty years is it the final piece of evidence to put to rest remaining questions about the Oklahoma City bombing. Fox 25 first told you about the existence of the unknown DNA profile last December, but in the months that have followed there has been no identification of the profile, but there have been more people coming forward to say the attempt to cover up the truth about the unknown sample dates back more than two decades. {snip} Officially it was Timothy McVeigh, aided by Terry Nichols, who detonated a massive truck bomb outside the Alfred P. Murrah...

Watching

Three jeeps pulled up sharply followed by a big truck, armed men in uniforms piled out and surrounded the group of women and children.  They were tired, they had walked for two days and had only eaten what they had been able to carry with them before their homes completely burned to the ground.  A mother of two held her trembling children tightly, she smiled through her fatigue.  The men in uniforms were soldiers or maybe the police.  She was uncertain, but she had recognised their uniform and the emblem on their vehicles.  The leaflets that aircraft had dropped among the bombs had...

FPF #214 – Saudi Lies to Congress

On FPF #214, I breakdown Saudi's misleading explanation for their bombing of a Doctors Without Borders cholera treatment facility in Yemen. Saudi Arabia attempted to use an email from a low-level DWB official to claim DWB was at fault for the bombing. However, the facility was marked, and DWB informed Saudi Arabia 12 times about the location of the facility.  I also discuss John Bolton setting up a summit between Trump and Putin. I explain the status of the US/Russian relationship and what could come out of these talks. I also update North Korean denuclearization and Turkey.  Links FPF...

6/22/18 Lawrence Wittner Talks Nuclear Buildup and Mutually Assured Destruction

Lawrence Wittner joins the show to talk nuclear weapons and the possibility of a nuclear-free world. He explains that the safety of mutually assured destruction has nearly failed several times, and that nuclear war is a very plausible threat to humanity. Beyond the massive casualties likely to result from the hugely increased power of today's bombs, the smoke and ash could also rise high enough into the air that normal atmospheric processes can't easily clear them away, causing a global nuclear winter. The consequences of this catastrophe would be even greater than any initial...
