FBI – The Terror Factory + Chicago Police’s “black site”

27 02 2015

Why Does the FBI Have to Manufacture its Own Plots if Terrorism and ISIS Are Such Grave Threats?

By Glenn Greenwald

“The FBI and major media outlets yesterday trumpeted the agency’s latest counterterrorism triumph: the arrest of three Brooklyn men, ages 19 to 30, on charges of conspiring to travel to Syria to fight for ISIS (photo of joint FBI/NYPD press conference, above). As my colleague Murtaza Hussain ably documents“it appears that none of the three men was in any condition to travel or support the Islamic State, without help from the FBI informant.” One of the frightening terrorist villains told the FBI informant that, beyond having no money, he had encountered a significant problem in following through on the FBI’s plot: his mom had taken away his passport. Noting the bizarre and unhinged ranting of one of the suspects, Hussain noted on Twitter that this case “sounds like another victory for the FBI over the mentally ill.

In this regard, this latest arrest appears to be quite similar to the overwhelming majority of terrorism arrests the FBI has proudly touted over the last decade.”   . . .  (more)

Boing Boing - First-hand reports of torture from Homan Square, Chicago PD’s “black site”

“. . . In the wake of last week’s revelations about Homan Square, the off-the-books “black site” where Chicago PD disappear prisoners for violent, aggressive interrogation, four of the site’s victims have come forward to describe the highly racialized human rights abuses at the secret site. . . “

“. . . . Three other men, Kory Wright, Deandre Hutcherson and David Smith, have also told the Guardian they were held in 2006 inside Homan Square, where they say they were handcuffed by both wrists with their arms spread. Hutcherson says he was punched in the face while in this position, before an officer stepped on his groin “like he was putting a cigarette out”.”

Mid-Atlantic Ridge Jumpy

17 02 2015

While we watch these big quakes off Japan (ENE News report, Quake Watch report) and the 6.7 quake at the bottom of South America, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is extra jumpy at the same time as Brazil tremors with 1.5-3M smaller quakes.

Earlier we posted about a series of large quake on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in 2013.

The RSOE map doesn’t get the Brazil info but they have a good map of the ridge.

Zero Hedge: HSBC Bank: Secret Origins To Laundering The World’s Drug Money

HSBC Bank : Secret Origins To 26/11 Mumbai Attacks

#SwissLeaks what the media has termed it is a trove of secret documents from HSBC’s Swiss private banking arm that reveals names of account holders and their balances for the year 2006-07. They come from over 200 countries, the total balance over $100 billion. But nowhere has the HSBC Swiss list touched off a more raging political debate than in India.

That’s why to obtain and investigate the Indian names, The Indian Express partnered in a three-month-long global project with the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and the Paris-based Le Monde newspaper. The investigation revealed 1,195 Indian HSBC clients, roughly double the 628 names that French authorities gave to the Government in 2011. The new revelation— published as part of a global agreement — is expected to significantly widen the scale and scope of the ongoing probe by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) appointed by the Supreme Court.

For years, when banks have been caught laundering drug money, they have claimed that they did not know, that they were but victims of sneaky drug dealers and a few corrupt employees. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that a considerable portion of the global banking system is explicitly dedicated to handling the enormous volume of cash produced daily by dope traffickers. . . .
