Israeli scoreboard: ....total Palestinian dead 1116, 53 dead Israeli soldiers.
Death toll numbers are coming closer to the nearly 1400 dead Palestinians from Israel's last slaughter in Gaza in 2009. Bibi is telling Israelis to prepare for a "prolonged campaign" of killing in Gaza. That from our closest and bestest ally in the middle east.
This should work out well....
Israeli tank fire hit the fuel depot of the Gaza Strip's only power plant on Tuesday, ...."the power plant is finished", said it's director...
The power generating plant supplied 2/3'rds of the electricity to the occupied territory. I'm sure that blowing up the Gaza power supply is an example of Israel exercising it's right to defend itself....I'm just not sure what wording the propagandists will use in their rationale.
To learn about how American conservative propagandist, Frank Luntz, has trained Israeli propagandists on how to spin their war crimes in more pleasing words for American audiences.....go here.
Like for example America's embrace of torture. Consider: 13 years ago, the Bush-Cheney administration plotted secretly with the CIA to begin a campaign of torturing detainees. Free Americans, who live in the most free and transparent democracy in all of world history, have yet to be told the truth about our nation's exceptional embrace of torture.
You see, American leaders can't tell us the truth and still keep us safe. Because those leaders must keep us safe, they can't tell us the truth. It's just the cost of freedom, you understand. We can't handle the truth....and because we can't....our leaders must not tell us the truth.
Some say that U.S. leaders shield us from the truth because the truth would implicate those leaders in very serious wrongdoing. But those who suggest such a thing, obviously, do not love America.
That explains why former CIA Director "Slam Dunk" George Tenet has been brought in to supervise the release of a Senate report on the use of torture during the Bush years. The word "supervise" is a euphemism for "censor".
Over the past several months, Mr. Tenet has quietly engineered a counterattack against the Senate committee’s voluminous report, which could become public next month.
See how it's done? When truth threatens to attack......it is the role of former leaders to "counterattack" that truth. Just think of what might happen if a successful truth attack broke out in free and transparent America. The collateral damage threat to our Protectors is just too hideous to even think about. And so George Tenet has been rushed in to spare our population from such a terrible outbreak of truth.
Truth is a slippery schemer though......always looking for ways to attack our Leaders....
Several people who have read the report said that it concludes that the C.I.A.’s interrogation methods broke up no terrorist plots and that agency officials repeatedly inflated the value of the Program.
Naturally, there are always "some" who want to clear the way for truth to attack our Leaders and former Leaders.....
Senator Ron Wyden, the Oregon Democrat who is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said “in my view this report should have been public yesterday, and attempts to disrupt and delay it are unacceptable.”
That is an example of how "terrorist truth" sympathizers have infiltrated the highest Committees in the U.S. and are seeking, deviously, to attack our Protectors with "sleeper cell" Committee findings.
America is at war.....and it's a long war....against the tactic of truth-telling. We have been led to believe that the "T" in GWOT represents "Terror".....but it really represents "Truth." Our Protectors, rightly, are protecting American citizens from being terrorized by IED's of truth blowing up all over the D.C. landscape. Truth is so dangerous for American citizens to know that our leaders dare not even tell us that truth is the real enemy in our longest war ever.
Ask yourself, who is better equipped to censor the Senate Committee's report on torture? The former and current directors of the CIA, the agency which secretively and illegally conducted the Bush-Cheney torture campaign with up to 200 agents participating......or a Democratically controlled Senate Committee? That's easy....a slam dunk, as it were.
Senators, especially Democratic ones, just can't keep a secret.....whereas the CIA is in the secrecy business and knows when truth is too threatening to our national security.
To spare us from being injured by knowing the truth about torture....I expect the final censored product to contain a title and a date......and most of the rest blacked out. Redaction is an important tool in combating the truth. And our Protectors know how to use it wisely.
So, all in all, we can rest comfortably knowing that our highest Leaders are on that wall defending against any serious breakout of truth upon the land.
Thank goodness for our Protectors. Without them, I just don't know what we would do.
