Beck On POW Captured in Pakistan: “Just Shoot Him in the Head”

Kurt Nimmo

During a discussion on Fox News about “mirandizing” Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab after the Christmas non-bombing, the corporate media appointed leader of the Tea Party movement, Glenn Beck, said POWs captured in Afghanistan should be shot in the head. See the video:

Beck was, needless to say, a little confused. He said the U.S. had captured the second most important member of al-Qaeda today. In fact, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, second within the Afghanistan Taliban only to the group’s leader Mullah Omar, was captured near Karachi about ten days ago. Of course, there is a big difference between the Taliban and al-Qaeda, not that we should expect Beck — or for that matter the corporate media — to notice the difference.

Beck said Baradar should be tortured and then shot in the head.

Isn’t this what the Nazis did to POWs and the resistance in countries they invaded and occupied?

“Persons taking no active part in the hostilities, including members of armed forces who have laid down their arms and those placed hors de combat by sickness, wounds, detention, or any other cause, shall in all circumstances be treated humanely,” states the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War.

But then neocons like Beck have nothing but contempt for the Geneva Convention.

Translated, the French term hors de combat means a soldier who is incapable of performing a military function. Baradar was arrested in a slum in the Pakistani city of Karachi. He was not on the battlefield and not engaged in a military function at the time of his capture.

Many are speculating that Baradar was not captured but rather surrendered (see video below). Of course, for Beck and the neocons — and Beck is indeed a neocon, not a constitutionalist or patriot — the facts surrounding Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar are irrelevant. He should be tortured and then promptly shot in the head.

The second in command of the Taliban was captured or turned himself in to agents working for Pakistan’s ISI and the CIA, two intelligence organizations that collaborated to create the Taliban. According to Newsweek, Baradar was far less militant than his comrades. “Baradar is consistently described as more open, more consultative, more consensus-oriented, and more patient than Omar. Taliban operatives say he’s less mercurial and more willing to hear different views rather than act on hearsay, emotion, or strict ideology,” Ron Moreau wrote on July 29, 2009. “His influence among the insurgents — and with Mullah Omar — is unmatched, and he’s not as close-minded as many of the leaders in Quetta are.”

Does not matter. Beck would have him tortured and then shot in the head.

Baradar is essentially a creation of the ISI-CIA collaboration in Afghanistan. He studied in the same madrassa as Omar — a religious school organized by the ISI and CIA (the latter provided militant Islamic textbooks and more) and lavishly funded by the Saudis — and they fought together against the Soviets in Rockefeller minion Zbigniew Brzezinski’s brutal covert war back in the 1980s.

“What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?” Brzezinski infamously responded when asked about his war crime. Brzezinski’s vendetta against the Soviet Union ultimately resulted in around 400,000 dead Afghans, not counting those killed more recently by the Pentagon.

Glenn Beck is a neocon and a brutal warmonger who hates Muslims opposed to the illegal invasion and occupation of their countries (note the expression on his face when he says Baradar should be shot in the head — pure anger and hatred).

The neocon link to Trotskyism is well documented. Beck makes a big deal out of a scattering of Marxists in the Obama administration (while ignoring the strong presence of Wall Street banksters) and warns that the “progressives” will take us down the same road as Lenin, Stalin, and Mao, i.e., gulags and mass extermination, and yet Beck ignores the murderous totalitarian strain in the neocon movement. This psychopathic proclivity has thus far resulted in well over a million dead Iraqis and an undetermined number of dead Afghans and Pakistanis. If the neocons and their neolib collaborators have their way, the death toll will escalate considerably after they attack Iran in the coming months.

Beck and his ideological soul-mate, Tea Party Sarah Palin, are all for killing Iranians. “Blowing up Iran. I say we nuke the bastards,” said the popular television and radio talk show host on May 11, 2006.

Said just like a rabid neocon.


The media in Pakistan has reported that Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik believes the news of Baradar’s arrest (or surrender) is propaganda.

“We are a sovereign state and hence will not allow anybody to come and do any operation. And we will not allow that. So this (report) is propaganda,” Malik told Dawn, Pakistan’s oldest and most widely-read English-language newspaper.

Malik criticized the New York Times for announcing the capture as a fait accompli and victory against the Taliban. “If the New York Times gives information, it is not a divine truth, it can be wrong. We have joint intelligence sharing and no joint investigation, nor joint raids,” said Malik outside parliament in Islamabad.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
