White Helmets and Hala Systems: the grotesque militarisation of ‘humanitarianism’ in Syria

Vanessa Beeley looks at how the now-infamous White Helmets partnered with Chicago-based Hala Systems to militarize so-called humanitarian efforts in Syria. Syria, August 2019 – reports came in that Russian warplanes had destroyed two terrorist-manned early warning radar posts in the Northern Hama countryside, known as the 20th post and the Eagle post.

US Task Force Smoking Gun smuggles weapons to Syria: Serbia files

New leaked documents expose for the first time a secret US Special Operations Command unit code named Task Force Smoking Gun. It has been deployed in Croatia since 2017 and tasked with diverting tons of arms and ammunition from Europe to Syria. Recently I anonymously received explosive documents about arms deals between the US Government and the Serbian state owned-arms […]

The Gulf of Credibility

I really cannot begin to fathom how stupid you would have to be to believe that Iran would attack a Japanese oil tanker at the very moment that the Japanese Prime Minister was sitting down to friendly, US-disapproved talks in Tehran on economic cooperation that can help Iran survive the effects of US economic sanctions. The Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous was […]

The Thought Police Are Coming

There has been a coordinated smear campaign against Julian by our Thought Police, one that is amplified by the very media organizations that published WikiLeaks material. The campaign was detailed in a leaked Pentagon document prepared by the Cyber Counterintelligence Assessments Branch and dated March 8, 2008. The document called for eradicating the “feeling of trust” that is WikiLeaks’ “center of gravity” and destroying Julian’s reputation.

Mike Pompeo reveals true motto of CIA: ‘We lied, we cheated, we stole’

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris take a look at a Texas A&M University speech, and subsequent interview, with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The former CIA Director admitted, ‘as an aside’ to the question asked, that the Intelligence agency he headed up before being appointed as the top US Diplomat had a motto “we lied, we […]

BSNews correspondence with BBC’s Kirsty Wark on Assange

In December 2010 I watched an interview with Julian Assange conducted by Newsnight’s Kirsty Wark. See for yourselves below how it was conducted, with Wark pressing the ‘sexual offender in danger of absconding’ line repeatedly even as Assange attempted to explain that he had stayed in Sweden for five weeks after the allegations emerged and only left after seeking permission […]

The End of Press Freedom

Today there is a real fear that a journalist and publisher is about to be extradited from an ostensibly democratic country to face a sealed grand jury indictment, the charges of which may include espionage which can carry a sentence of life imprisonment or even capital punishment.

Trump’s stance on the Golan Heights will allow Israel to operate with impunity elsewhere

Washington is ignoring international law and consensus, bolstering Benjamin Netanyahu’s position ahead of the forthcoming elections When President Donald Trump moved the US embassy to occupied Jerusalem last year, effectively sabotaging any hope of establishing a viable Palestinian state, he tore up the international rule book. Last week, he trampled all over its remaining tattered pages. He did so, of […]

Journalist taken hostage by Farouk Brigade 2013: ‘Syrian government did not use chemical weapons in Ghouta’

In its zealous pursuit to misinform western public opinion about Syria, MSM has canceled dozens of scheduled interviews with a war reporter after he has declared to Belgian RTL radio: “It wasn’t the government of Bashar al-Assad that used Sarin gas or any other gas in Ghouta”. Pierre Piccinin da Prata, the Belgian war reporter and Editor-in-Chief of The Maghreb […]

US officials offered my friend cash to take down Tehran’s power grid

It took a country-wide power outage in Venezuela, whispers of a cyberattack, and smug tweets from US officials to make me suddenly recall the cloak-and-dagger story of a close Iranian-American friend nine years ago. My friend, an engineer — who I will not name for obvious reasons and who I will call ‘Kourosh’ for the purpose of this article — revealed to me in 2010 that he was approached […]
