Abu-Ghraib-like” torture of refugees exposed in Germany

1 October 2014

Reports from various German refugee facilities have revealed that residents are subjected to systematic torture and humiliation. Last weekend, videos and pictures emerged showing the serious mistreatment of refugees by security staff at one facility. One short video shows a refugee lying on a mat covered with vomit. The refugee asks someone off camera why they are hitting him.

“Do you want another? Should I kick you in the face, or what?” responds the security guard. “Then I do not need to beat you.” His colleague orders the victim to lie down in the vomit.

The video was shot in the refugee camp in Burbach in North Rhine Westphalia, and was leaked to a journalist, who…

A former Vatican archbishop accused of paedophilia stored tens of thousands of child porn videos and photos on a computer in his office at the Holy See diplomatic compound in the Dominican Republic, it has emerged.

Details of Jozef Wesolowski’s massive child porn stash have been revealed after the 66-year-old was arrested at the Vatican earlier this week.

He is the highest-ranking Vatican official ever to be investigated for sex abuse, and the first top papal representative to receive a defrocking sentence. He has been charged with sexually abusing minors and child porn possession and might face up to seven years in the Vatican’s tiny jail.

US seeks ‘political vacuum’ in Syria
Republished from Press TV

The United States is pursuing the same failed policy in Syria as it did in Iraq, and that is to create a “political vacuum” by removing “major power holders,” says a political commentator.

The best thing the US can do to combat terrorism is “work with those in power,” Siraj Davis, Jordan-based freelance journalist and human rights activist, told Press TV in a phone interview on Thursday.

The US invasion and occupation of Iraq led to the rise of insurgent groups that roam the country to this day, Siraj said. “Look what happened, we have insurgency even till now.”

US policymakers are pursuing the same policy in Syria, he said. They are trying “to take the major power holders out of position of influence and we are going to have anarchy and we are going to have ISIS (or…

220px-Cristinakirchnermensaje2010Buenos Aires – President Cristina Fernandez has taken a harder stance against the United States, even issuing a warning against groups inside Argentina confabulating with foreign forces to topple the government, after the ruling by New York judge Thomas Griesa that decreed Argentina in contempt.

“Don’t think for a moment that this is simply an isolated action by a senile judge in New York,” she said in four speeches last night at government headquarters, the first at the Bicentennial Women’s Hall, where she announced policies to encourage public works and urban renewal.

The other speeches were delivered at each of the three courtyards at the presidential palace where young political leaders and union members were gathered.

In response to a request from the vulture funds, Griesa declared Argentina in contempt for its non-compliance with his previous ruling that demanded the…

Pentagon Official: The President Is Lying To America — About Us, And About ISIS

Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flak since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false.

On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview with CBS, “Our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that, I think, they underestimated what…

Secretary of State Henry Kissinger ordered a series of secret contingency plans that included airstrikes and mining of Cuban harbors in the aftermath of Fidel Castro’s decision to send Cuban forces into Angola in late 1975, according to declassified documents made public today for the first time. “If we decide to use military power it must succeed. There should be no halfway measures,” Kissinger instructed General George Brown of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during a high-level meeting of national security officials on March 24, 1976, that included then Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. “I think we are going to have to smash Castro,” Kissinger told President Ford. “We probably can’t do it before the [1976 presidential] elections.” “I agree,” the president responded.

The story of Kissinger’s Cuban contingency planning was published today in…
