U.S. Accused Of Smuggling 2000 ISIS Fighters Out Of Ramadi  
Fort Russ - 31st December, 2015
by Elijah J. Magnier
Edited by Ollie Richardson

The Iraqi Army, the Counter Terrorism units, the Federal police, and Anbar tribes entered the city of Ramadi that was occupied by the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” group (ISIS) for several months. To their biggest surprise, only a few bodies of the terrorist group were found when intelligence gathering by the U.S led coalition and the Iraqi intelligence service confirmed the presence of around 2000 fighters in the city until days before the final assault. Six ISIS fighters were arrested while trying to flee Ramadi among the 442 civilians who left the city one day before the final assault on the city center.
The same phenomena of “ISIS evaporation” was registered in Sinjar when 7500 Kurds, supported by the U.S Air Force, occupied the key northern Iraqi city, finding a very small number of ISIS fighters in it.
So where did all these ISIS fighters go to?

A high-ranking source within the Iraqi government told me:
“The US forces operating in Iraq within the military operation room in Baghdad are the ones who define the units and the time (day and hour) of attacks against ISIS. If we want to benefit from an Air Force to defeat the terrorist group, we should bow to the American command. It is not unlikely for a possible American – Turkish coordination to communicate with “ISIS” and give a free way out to fighters to withdraw in the direction of the Syrian – Iraqi borders. That’s the information our drones collected in the last few days prior the attack of Ramadi.

Our signals and Human Intelligence informed the Americans and us about ISIS movement of troops. We were not allowed to engage against these and no one in the government can contradict the Americans for the moment. The U.S ordered Baghdad to keep al-Hashd al-Sha’bi (PMUs) away from the battlefield of Anbar perhaps to ensure a free passage to ISIS and to reduce the Iranian influence and credit of victories in Iraq”.

America has asked decision makers in Baghdad to change the heads of anti-terrorism, intelligence and security services of the army and Interior Ministry. Moreover, the Secretary General of the Council of Minister was also  suggested by the Americans and in consequences he has been appointed to this position. The U.S wants a homogeneous team that is friendly to its policy and presence of these (US forces) on the ground in Iraq.

The hostile Era – created by the former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki that led to a withdrawal of the forces from Mesopotamia – is over and the policy adopted at the moment consists of reducing the influence of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani over a few Iraqi armed groups. What is contributing to the success of such a policy is the fact that the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is in a bad terms with Soleimani. Since the start, PM Abadi believed that Soleimani was planning to remove him from power, supporting al-Maliki and promoting other choices to replace the actual Premier”, said the source.

The source concluded:
”Iran controls various military organisations fighting within the Popular Mobilisation Units that are strongly present in the battlefield in Iraq and in Syria. Such an influence persuaded al-Abadi to choose the path that leads to ” Uncle Sam ” instead of choosing the one of Welayat-el- faqih. This is why Abadi rejected, following an explicit American demand, to reject any Russia military assistance in the air, in Iraq, unlike the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Iraqi Prime Minister is aware of the possibility that the U.S would like to see 3 Iraqi cantons, one for the Kurds, one for the Sunni and another one for the Shia. The Americans are also supporting the Turkish presence in Iraq, and met with the Director of the French Intelligence Service who said: The Middle East will never be the same as before. What is becoming more clear now that ISIS is a toy used by players for their agenda and plans to reshuffle the map of the Middle East”.

Declassified Documents: Obama Ordered CIA To Train ISIS

Your News Wire May 28, 2015 by Carol Adl
Government watchdog Judicial Watch published more than 100 pages of formerly classified documents from the U.S. Department of Defense and the State Department.
The documents obtained through a federal lawsuit, revealed the agencies earlier views on ISIS, namely that they were a desirable presence in Eastern Syria in 2012 and that they should be “supported” in order to isolate the Syrian regime.
The U.S. intelligence documents not only confirms suspicions that the United States and some of its coalition allies had actually facilitated the rise of the ISIS in Syria – as a counterweight to the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad- but also that ISIS members were initially trained by members and contractors of the Central Intelligence Agency at facilities in Jordan in 2012.
Examiner reports:
One of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents declared that President Barack Obama and his counterparts within the coalition considered the establishment of a Salafist organization in eastern Syria in order to further downfall of the Assad regime. “And this is exactly what the supporting powers to the (Syrian) opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime,” said the DIA report, which had been formerly classified until its release. Salafists are radical Sunnis and an offshoot of the Saudi’s Wahhabi sect.

Ex-Nato Secretary General Explains Why Turkey Will Have To Make Amends With Russia
Translated by Ollie Richardson for Fort Russ
2nd January, 2016
RIA http://ria.ru/world/20160102/1353211709.html
Former NATO Secretary General Javier Solana, who chaired the Alliance between 1995 and 1999, in his article for Project Syndicate, explained why Ankara cannot give up the opportunity to make peace with Russia in the future.
According to him, for the European Union, which started negotiations with Ankara because of the refugee crisis, the fight against "Islamic state" (prohibited on the territory of Russia — ed.) remains a key priority. This struggle will require interaction with Moscow, which the member countries of the EU have already recognized.
"After the November terrorist attacks in Paris, attempts were made to strengthen the cooperation between the countries in combating terrorism, including between France and Russia. If Turkey wants its relations with the EU to improve, it will have to join," writes Solana.
He noted that Turkey, because of its proximity to Syria, could play a particularly important role in shaping the peace process in the region, ending a sharp deterioration of relations with Russia, after Turkey had shot down a Russian military aircraft.
Strained relations with Moscow not only led to economic sanctions by the Russian authorities, but also hit Turkey's position in Syria, said Solana. Russia has upped its involved in the region with air-to-air missiles, and from the point of view of former NATO Secretary General, this could weaken the influence of Ankara on the North-Eastern border with Syria.

Former Leader Of Right Sector Disappeared From Interpol List
Translated by Ollie Richardson for Fort Russ

Tvzvezda http://tvzvezda.ru/news/vstrane_i_mire/content/201601021943-tqea.htm
The former head of the Ukrainian organization "Right sector", Dmitry Yarosh, has disappeared from the open database of the Interpol wanted list, TASS reported. Searching his name on the organization's website does not provide results. A working hyperlink to a page about him leads to a blank page. Interpol has not commented on this information.
The Prosecutor General's office sent to Interpol materials for the international tracing of Yarosh in April 2014. Dmitry Yarosh had resigned of the leader "Right sector" in November 2015 and announced the creation of a new nationalist organization.
Nationalists in "Right sector" participated in all the radical actions in Ukraine after the Maidan. In July 2015, fighters of "Right sector", not dividing spheres of influence, started an internecine fight in the Transcarpathian city of Mukachevo, who then opened fire on the policemen, killing four people. In the fall of 2015 "Right sector" staged a food blockade of the Crimea. "Right sector" is a union of radical nationalist organizations of Ukraine. The organization is prohibited in the territory of the Russian Federation.

ISIS oil trucks cross into Turkey every day, captured terrorist admits

RT 2 Jan, 2016
A captured Islamic State militant who spoke to Sputnik news agency has bolstered claims that Turkey is involved in illegal oil deals with the jihadist group up to the hilt.
24-year-old Mahmud Ghazi Tatar says he joined Islamic State (IS, previously ISIS/ISIL) from the Turkish city of Adiyaman. Together with other recruits, he was transported over the border into Syria where he received terrorist training.
Having taken part in the civil war in Syria, he was captured by Kurdish forces last June and is now imprisoned.
RT obtained interview footage with the captive from Sputnik news agency. In it, the former IS fighter reveals details about Turkey's alleged oil links to the terror group.
“At the training camp in May 2015, our commander told us that the group sells fuel to Turkey. That income covers Islamic State's costs. The oil trucks crossing into Turkey every day carry crude oil, as well as petrol,” Tatar said, adding that the Islamic group has “enough oil to last them a long time.”
In the words of Tatar’s commander, the oil is being sold via several businessmen and traders, although their names were not disclosed.
“ISIL also receives lots of supplies from Turkey and Arab countries,” the captured militant said.
Turkey strongly denies that it has links to the terrorists.
ISIS’s black market oil trade has come under scrutiny from the international community amid turbulent oil prices, which have fallen to half their previous level in 2015.

UK veterans may be prosecuted over Iraq 'war crimes' as claims grow tenfold
UK veterans may be prosecuted over Iraq 'war crimes' as claims grow tenfold
RT UK 2 Jan, 2016
Allegations of unlawful killings and torture committed by British troops in Iraq have multiplied tenfold over the past five years, with the head of the unit established to investigate the cases saying the soldiers may face prosecution.
When the UK Ministry of Defence created the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT) in 2010 to look into accusations of abuse and torture allegedly committed by the British contingent in Iraq in 2003-06, the number of the victims it was dealing with was 152, yet in a matter of five years this number grew by almost 10 times, currently reaching at least 1,514, according to the latest IHAT quarterly update.
Of the total number of alleged victims, some 280 are victims of alleged unlawful killings and 1,235 are cases of ill-treatment, including alleged rape and torture.
Currently, only 25 unlawful killing cases (9 percent) allegedly committed by British forces are being investigated; the ill-treatment cases under investigation total 45 (less than 4 percent).
“There are serious allegations that we are investigating across the whole range of IHAT investigations, which incorporates homicide, where I feel there is significant evidence to be obtained to put a strong case before the Service Prosecuting Authority (SPA) to prosecute and charge,” Mark Warwick, a former police detective in charge of the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT), told The Independent.
In the meantime, the International Criminal Court (ICC) is conducting a preliminary examination of more than 1,200 cases of war crimes allegedly committed by British forces in Iraq, of them nearly 50 cases of Iraqis dying in British custody.
The IHAT was supposed to complete its investigations by 2016 but it is clear that this time limit will not be met. Even though the team is going to be funded until 2019, even that timeframe would not guarantee that the job will get done.
“Over the next 12 to 18 months, we will review all the caseload to better understand the picture and then I think we can say whether 2019 seems realistic,” Warwick said.
Having mentioned “lots of significant cases” with “serious allegations” being investigated right now, Mark Warwick said that “at the appropriate time” they will be discussed with the SPA regarding whether they could be brought to court as war crimes.
So far, after five years since the IHAT was established, not a single prosecution has been brought to court.
Human rights groups suspect the British government of soft-pedaling the whole issue.

Breaking News: Independent Inquiry will counter Canada’s latest attempt to cover up the Disappeare

December 15, 2015
International Tribunal will investigate “the Disappeared of Canada”, past and present, and lay criminal charges – Canada’s government, courts “too complicit” to conduct such an inquiry
London, New York, Ottawa:
A special inquiry into the disappearance of generations of indigenous people in Canada will commence on January 1, 2016, under the auspices of an international Tribunal of jurists and human rights groups.
The International Tribunal for the Disappeared of Canada (ITDC) will be established under the law of nations as an investigative legal body with the power to subpoena and prosecute. Its creation is necessitated, according to its mandate, “because of the inability of the Canadian government or its courts to neutrally and effectively investigate crimes in which they are complicit”.
The new Tribunal will be allied and work with families of the disappeared and grassroots community groups across Canada to ensure that “the entire truth is revealed concerning why aboriginal people have been targeted for extermination for generations, and to criminally charge the forces responsible in competent courts of justice.”
The ITDC was established in response to the Canadian government’s recent announcement of its own “Missing Women’s Inquiry”, and in the wake of Canada’s efforts to officially conceal its historic genocide of Indians through a stage-managed “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” (TRC).
“Experience has shown that when faced with human rights crimes within their own borders, Canadian governments of every political persuasion rely on very restricted and controlled in-house ‘inquiries’ designed to conceal more than they reveal” commented a spokesman for the Tribunal today in London.

Money is the Driving Force:
Politicians in America are Not Elected on the Basis of Acumen, Education or Intelligence…
By Anthony Bellchambers
Global Research, January 01, 2016
The power-brokers who influenced congress to support nuclear Israel’s illegal settlements in 2015 and war with non-nuclear Iran in 2016
In 1933, a baby was born into a low-income family and grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. His family was of Ukrainian Jewish ancestry whose father drove a taxi, and his mother ran a knitting shop. Currently he is the owner of an Israeli daily newspaper as well as being boss of an LA gambling casino group and is the major founder of the Republican Party.
It is, of course, a matter of global bemusement that the government of the most powerful Western democracy, the United States of America, is elected not on the basis of political acumen, education or intelligence but on the amount of money that specific individuals have either amassed or inherited. Barack Obama, of course, being the one exception.
This political aberration has, in the recent past, given us such incompetent nonentities as George Bush who personified the ultimate in inept leadership, and which currently showcases a television host and hotel owner, a certain Mr Trump.
Whilst this aberrant behaviour on the part of the American public may seem to the outside world to be a rehearsal for another TV show, in fact it is a tragedy of global proportions whereby casino bosses and the like use their gambling or other profits to ensure that they control or heavily influence the supposedly democratically elected US congress. The result is, that wherever we live in the world – in Europe, Asia or North America – our lives are circumscribed by the antics of such American nonentities who have managed to obtain huge political influence by the power of money alone.

The VW Emissions Scandal and Its Effect on the Global Auto Industry

By Helen Gallant
Global Research, January 01, 2016
Region: Europe, USA
The VW emissions scandal sent shock waves throughout the auto industry across the world, as it was revealed that the company had been fraudulently lowering the emission counts of the nitrogen oxides that were included in many of its diesel engines after the company realised that there was no legal way for those diesel engines to meet the tight U.S. emissions standards that were in place.
Volkswagen were vague when detailing exactly how the fraud was allowed to take place, and simply blamed the scandal on a ‘chain of events’ within the company. Despite a two hour intensive press conference at the time the scandal first broke, a satisfactory explanation for who authorised the installation the inaccurate software, when the software was first used, and how was the cover up to disguise this usage kept hidden for such a long period of time. What is known is that 500,000 diesel-powered cars in the U.S. were found to be effected when the scandal first broke in September. But this isn’t the biggest controversy to emerge from the scandal: what it reveals about the global auto industry is much more illuminating.
Shining A Light on The European Car Market
The scandal reduced Volkswagen’s standing within the global auto industry (albeit temporarily) and also shone a light on the industry and the way in which its reporting takes place in general. Volkswagen is the biggest car maker in Europe, and one whose reputation revolves around its commitment to reliability and trustworthiness. Correcting the scandal now it has emerged is likely to cost the company, and therefore the German economy, greatly, as it is estimated that 11 million cars and vans will need to be serviced in order to remove the faulty software, and the United Kingdom and Germany are considering the further recall of approximately 1.2 million and 2.8 million diesel cars respectively as a result.
The knock on ramifications are effecting more than just VW: shares in other car manufacturers, including Renault, Peugeot, Nissan and BMW have all dropped by between 2 to 4 percent since the scandal first broke. Focus and guidelines on the European auto industry are likely to become much stricter, and the effect of this will be a loss of profits in association with a loss of consumer confidence.
A Death Blow to the Diesel Car?

Ecological Panic: The New Rationale For Globalist Cultism

December 16, 2015
By Brandon Smith
Faith in an ideology based on a desire for power over others and the need to feel personally superior without any legitimate accomplishment is perhaps the most dangerous state of being an individual or society can adopt. I would refer to such a mindset as “zealotry,” an integral element of cultism and an extreme result of the elitist side of faith.
Zealotry and cultism are not limited to the realm of the religious. Zealotry is a clever devil hiding in the woodwork of any political or academic construct, and this includes the scientific community when it strays away from empirical logic and honest data into a world of pseudoscience and social engineering. I cannot think of a better example of zealotry feeding scientific cultism than the highly propagandized climate change/global warming movement.

BRICS not content to leave West with mass media monopoly
Danielle Ryan
RT Op-Edge 24 Dec, 2015
“Generating information is the most important source of power today. When you generate information, you generate perception.”
Those are the words of Roberto Jaguaribe, Brazil’s Ambassador to China.
He was speaking at the first BRICS Media Summit which took place in Beijing on December 1. The one-day summit was proposed by the Xinhua News Agency, China’s official press agency, and was jointly organized by media agencies from the other BRICS nations, including RT.
"Deeper cooperation in the media sphere between the BRICS nations is likely to produce a far bigger headache for the West..."
The summit ended with a declaration to “strengthen ties among our five countries, whether in the economic, social or political sphere, with objective, impartial, comprehensive and timely media reports”.
Cooperation between the BRICS in the media realm will serve two functions; the first as a means of enhancing globally the idea of a new multipolar world, and the second, as a means of facilitating mutual understanding between the BRICS nations themselves — to “learn more about each other” and to “find a way of receiving news directly rather than from outside sources”.
Western monopoly on perception challenged
The event went almost completely unreported by Western media, which is at once surprising and unsurprising. It’s hard to believe that the dominant Western news agencies could miss an opportunity to use a headline that might include the phrase “propaganda coalition!” — but at the same time, no one wants to draw too much attention to their competitors

Erdogan/Turkey & “Praising” Hitler- The Unabated Destabilization of Turkey

Penny January 2
As has been stated here, for so dam long now...Turkey is being destabilized. Mostly by NATO’s Stay Behind Army, the NATO supported PKK.
Undoubtedly with some help by those other NATO irregulars “Grey Wolves” *NATO Stay Behind Armies: Gladio and Grey Wolves. Updated
Contrary to the lying media- alt and main stream, it was the PKK that broke the truce between Turkey’s elected government and themselves. This is when the destabilization began in earnest. And by all appearances looks to be accelerating.
*AKP's "Stunning Victory"?
Previous post from July 28/2015: PKK Ended Ceasefire Weeks Ago? A stream of the latest news PKK announces end of cease-fire, mobilizes guerillas
The Kurdish Communities Union (KCK), an umbrella network that includes the PKK, announced on Saturday that the cease-fire which was declared via a message from the PKK's imprisoned leader Abdullah Öcalan in 2013 has ended
As I've stated for months now- The PKK admit they broke the truce. In their own words. They announced it, themselves!
The PKK made their own announcement. Their own statement of fact. Of their own volition.
Only disinfo sites and/or unthinking regurgitators are claiming otherwise.
Harsh? Nope! I've no patience for lies and liars. The information is accessible and available for those interested in finding out what really happened!
Buzz. Buzz. Buzz. Buzz words, abound- Simple thoughts for simple minds
One cannot miss the multitude of headlines using these 4 words “Erdogan/Turkey/Praise/Hitler” in one configuration or another. Including dis/misinfo Zero Hedge! Turkey's Erdogan Praises "Hitler's Germany" As Example Of Effective Government Yup, Tyler Durden unsurprisingly regurgitating the main stream media buzz words including allegations of Erdogan singing Hitlers praises- Oh well, I don’t need no stinkin’ hero anyway! Associating anyone with Hitler is a standard propaganda tactic.
Leo Strauss who knows disinfo well called this “Reductio ad Hitlerum”
“According to Strauss, Reductio ad Hitlerum is a form of ad hominem, ad misericordiam, or a fallacy of irrelevance. The suggested rationale is one of guilt by association.
The term is coined in an analogy with "reductio ad absurdum".
Reductio ad Hitlerum is sometimes called "playing the Nazi card". According to its critics and proponents, it is a tactic often used to derail arguments, because such comparisons tend to distract and anger the opponent, as Hitler and Nazism are seen as unpopular in the modern Western world.[2]”
If you don’t want to take Strauss’s word for it....
Read up on ad hominem and guilt by association as propaganda devices- You will understand that Erdogan, like Assad, like Saddam Hussein, like Putin, like Gaddafi are being demonized so that what ever evil is planned for them as individuals or the nations they lead/led can be justified. It’s the oldest trick in the book!
Would the real Hitler please stand up!
Saddam= Hitler
Assad = Hitler
Previous post on this very topic!
It's Hitler.....Hurry up Americans and Intervene
A post based on this article from Washington Post: Mentioning Hitler makes Americans more willing to intervene in Ukraine
'Cause ya know Putin = Hitler. Prince Charles even says so!
Prince Charles says Putin = Hitler
And I should care about what Prince Charles claims? No one should care about what he claims!
I spent a great deal of time today sifting through the clap trap, rubbish and garbage to try to find what it was Erdogan actually said. Lots of out of context garbage, that's for sure!
I found an article that clarifies the statement:
It said his comments were meant to demonstrate that an executive presidency can exist in a unitary state and does not depend on a federal system of government, and that neither a presidential nor parliamentary system is a guarantee against 'abuse of power.'
"If the system is abused it may lead to bad management resulting in disasters as in Hitler's Germany ... The important thing is to pursue fair management that serves the nation," the statement said, adding it was unacceptable to suggest Erdogan was casting Hitler's Germany in a positive light.
