It has become abundantly clear, thanks especially to excellent reporting and analysis by Glenn Greenwald and Justin Raimondo, that the “Khorasan Group” threat used as the pretext for the US bombing of Syria was totally fabricated by the US government. The purpose was an attempt to [...]

It looked like Eric Holder was set to be Obama’s “guy” running the Justice Department until Big O’s term expires. But he suddenly stepped down yesterday without a meaningful explanation.
It looks like the immediate trigger is a judge’s ruling denying the Obama Government’s motion to [...]
