Order Discount Quick Relief Cats

WikiStink by Susan Abulhawa Over a quarter of a million diplomatic cables, order discount quick relief cats marked – “secret” , order discount quick relief cats “confidential”, order discount quick relief cats or “unclassified” – to and from the US State Department have been “leaked” to the public, order discount quick relief cats presumably by a whistleblower. Order discount quick relief cats On the surface, order discount quick relief cats it seems like the sort of thing that restores power to the people. Order discount quick relief cats It arms us all with knowledge and reminds those in power that they must answer to the public. Then you pause to think. Order discount quick relief cats And that’s when the holes in this narrative become obvious. Although WikiLeaks claims to provide a counter balance to the decades of disinformation served up in heaps by the “old media”, order discount quick relief cats it chose to allow the vetting of these documents by these same outlets. Order discount quick relief cats Other highly respected media outlets, order discount quick relief cats like al Jazeera and various independent media, order discount quick relief cats were excluded. Order discount quick relief cats I find that odd, order discount quick relief cats for starters. If we take a look at the content of the cables themselves, order discount quick relief cats the most remarkable thing to come out of these secret and confidential memos is what they do not contain. Order discount quick relief cats Granted, order discount quick relief cats only 290 have actually been released so far. Order discount quick relief cats But it seems far from a coincidence that nearly every cable to and from Arab states released thus far has to do with villainizing Iran and mum’s the word on most major diplomatic hooplas of the past few years. Take for example the bombshell briefing by a senior military officers to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Admiral Michael Mullen earlier in the year. Order discount quick relief cats The team was dispatched by Commander General David Petraeus to brief the Pentagon on intelligence that Israeli intransigence in the peace process was jeopardizing American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and that America was perceived as weak, order discount quick relief cats ineffectual, order discount quick relief cats and unable to stand up to Israel. Order discount quick relief cats Such political commentary from the highest echelons of the military was unprecedented and when news of this briefing broke, order discount quick relief cats you can bet there was a significant diplomatic flurry. Order discount quick relief cats Yet a simple search of Petraeus’ name in the cablegate database on the Guardian website only turns up cables indicating that Arab countries were eager for an attack on Iran, order discount quick relief cats which coincidentally happens to bolster Israel’s drumming for more war. You can’t even find Vice President Joe Biden’s name in the keyword search even though Israel’s announcement of the construction of more illegal Jewish-only settlements in East Jerusalem on the eve of Biden’s visit to Tel Aviv amounted to an epic public spanking of Obama. Order discount quick relief cats Subsequent statements from the White House were as harsh as America ever dares to be with Israel, order discount quick relief cats although they did not approach Obama’s reported ire over the matter. Order discount quick relief cats Thus far, order discount quick relief cats there is not a single cable on the matter. If you search cables originating in Dubai, order discount quick relief cats all you’ll find are those denouncing and accusing Iran in titles like “Arab states scorn ‘evil’ Iran”, order discount quick relief cats “AbuDhabi favors action to prevent nuclear Iran”, order discount quick relief cats or “Emiratis fret over Iranian meddling”. Order discount quick relief cats This is quite amazing considering that the biggest diplomatic crisis this year occurred after a senior Hamas leader was assassinated in Dubai. Order discount quick relief cats The evidence and the world’s collective finger pointed at the Mossad and several diplomatic fallouts ensued when it was confirmed that Israel had forged foreign passports of the hitmen. Order discount quick relief cats And yet, order discount quick relief cats there is not a word about this in any of the cables released so far. Order discount quick relief cats Instead, order discount quick relief cats everything referencing the UAE or originating from Dubai only discusses “evil Iran”, order discount quick relief cats much like the cables referencing Gen. Order discount quick relief cats Petraeus. The list goes on. Order discount quick relief cats For all of Israel’s well known subterfuge (to put it mildly) – their espionage against the US; their persistent requests for money, order discount quick relief cats weapons, order discount quick relief cats special favors, order discount quick relief cats and political cover; their well documented crimes against Palestinians; their mafia tactics of assassinating leaders, order discount quick relief cats intellectuals, order discount quick relief cats and scientists across the globe; and their US-based powerful lobby, order discount quick relief cats AIPAC, order discount quick relief cats which was the center of an FBI investigation that found their senior officers passing sensitive and classified US intelligence to Israel – there is nothing referencing any of this in the memos to and from the US State Department in the cables thus far released. Something else to note. Someone with access to hundreds of thousands of classified communications and with the ability to move them without detection must have exceptionally high security clearance. Order discount quick relief cats He or she must be on the far upper end of the ladder. Order discount quick relief cats Why would individuals like that risk their careers, order discount quick relief cats possibly their lives, order discount quick relief cats just to embarrass the US, order discount quick relief cats presumably their own country? Whistleblowers tend to be people who obey the call of their conscience and moral codes to expose crimes and injustices committed. Order discount quick relief cats But there is nothing of the sort in this “leak”. Order discount quick relief cats Even more absurd is the notion that Manning, order discount quick relief cats a soldier, order discount quick relief cats leaked all these documents while in custody and under surveillance. Finally, order discount quick relief cats does anyone find it odd that while most world leaders are quietly bracing themselves for embarrassment and diplomatic repercussions, order discount quick relief cats Benjamin Netanyahu is confidently speaking and gloating about how Saudia Arabia has urged attacking Iran? I sure do. There are still thousands more cables to be reviewed and redacted by the good old boy network of ‘old media’ and I hope that the cables they release in the coming days and months will prove my suspicions moot. Order discount quick relief cats I’m willing to keep an open mind until we’ve seen the full leak. Order discount quick relief cats In the meantime, order discount quick relief cats what we know so far does not add up and frankly smells rotten.
