CIA Launches “Counterproliferation Center” as Iran Attack Rhetoric Kicks Into High Gear

As the rhetoric heats up in preparation for an attack on Iran, the CIA has announced it will christen a “counterproliferation center to combat the spread of dangerous weapons and technology, a move that comes as Iran is on the verge of fueling up a new nuclear power plant,” reports the Associated Press.

Obama’s CIA boss, Leon Panetta, said the CIA will formalize a collaboration between its “operators” — presumably the “Dark Side” Cheney talked about so fondly — and its more sedate analysts.

CIA spokesman George Little said the collaboration has already produced results and cited last year’s “revelation” of the “discovery of the Syrian covert nuclear reactor and Iran’s undeclared uranium enrichment facility near Qom.”

In fact, the CIA knew about Iran’s Qom facility more than three years ago, but decided to roll out this “revelation” late last year as the bomb Iran bandwagon began turning its wheels with renewed vigor under a new and (at the time) less tainted president.

Israel claimed it had taken out Syria’s fledgling nuclear program, but this was later exposed as propaganda. “We don’t have any independent intelligence that it was a nuclear facility — only the assertions by the Israelis and some ambiguous satellite photography from them that shows a building, which the Syrians admitted was a military facility,” said one official, wishing to remain anonymous due to the sensitivity of the subject. As usual, the adjective “anonymous” and the noun “sensitivity” are inextricably linked in government parlance, especially when script-read by the corporate media.

Part of the effort to butt into the business of sovereign nations was the trickery employed by the CIA to interrupt Iran’s nuclear centrifuge operations at Natanz. Paul Brannan, a senior analyst at the Institute for Science and International Security, said the CIA managed to sneak “faulty parts into Iran’s nuclear supply chain.”

Imagine if you will the Iranians interfering in the United States’ nuclear program. Congress would declare war in a less than a fortnight. Or rather, since Congress is not in the business of declaring war as the Constitution states, the all-powerful imperial executive would issue an order calling for an attack.

Brannan, however, was obliged to admit reality. “Brannan said the Bushehr site is not a proliferation threat since Iran does not have the ability to reprocess the spent fuel into nuclear weapons-grade material,” the Associated Press reports.

Not that the CIA is about to issue the Iranians a get out of jail card. “But that site will be watched closely not only by the CIA but by other elements of the intelligence community,” undoubtedly including the neocon-friendly variety determined to start World War III, or as the neocons lovingly call it, World War IV.

At best, the CIA’s “counterproliferation center” is a bad joke. The United States is the only nation on the face of the earth to nuke another country. In regard to proliferating “weapons of mass destruction — nuclear, chemical and biological,” the CIA should take a look at the U.S. Department of Commerce. It licensed 70 biological exports to Saddam Hussein’s Iraq between 1985 and 1989, including at least 21 batches of lethal strains of anthrax.

Transnational corporations figured prominently in this effort — Phillips Petroleum, Unilever, Alcolac, Allied Signal, the American Type Culture Collection, and Teledyne all sold Iraq dual-use chemicals and biological samples for its biological weapons program. During a trial charging Teledyne with violations of the Export Administration Act and the Arms Export Control Act, the corporation said the CIA had authorized the shipments.

As for nukes and rogue nations, let us consider the role of Donald Rumsfeld, the former Secretary of Defense. In 2003, it was revealed that Rumsfeld played a key role in making sure North Korea would get nuclear weapons. Before assuming the role as Master of Death and Destruction (more than a million killed in Iraq alone), Rumsfeld occupied a place high up in the Swiss-based corporation ABB that made a tidy $200 million when it sold North Korea equipment and services for two nuclear power stations at Kumho.

Of course, the CIA’s counterproliferation center is not about preventing corporations and the CIA itself from selling materials destined for weapons of mass destruction. It is about demonizing Iran, Syria, North Korea and other officially declared enemies.

It’s about future wars and the propaganda required to sell the increasingly irrelevant American people those wars.

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?
