Breaking: Obama's Syria Allies Bomb Vatican Embassy

In keeping with recent practice of bombing the diplomatic facilities which oppose their struggle to overthrow the Syria government, the insurgents in Syria have hit the Vatican Embassy with a mortar shell today.

Targetting the Vatican embassy was likely no accident. As the US was on the verge of bombing Syria in late-August, the pope held a peace vigil at the Vatican attended by more than 100,000. As support for a US attack sagged among the American public and in Congress, this Vatican effort to head off a US war on behalf of the anti-Assad fighters was certainly of great significance. It may have been a deciding factor.

Intel Chairman Hypes Terrorism Deaths

House Intelligence Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) seems to be taking a page from his beloved NSA. In an effort to make the claim that spying on the rest of us is more necessary than ever, Rogers has thrown everything but the kitchen sink into the "terrorism" basket. In this way, he has greatly hyped "terrorism" deaths in 2012.

Kerry Returns to Hold Saudi Hands

Saudi Arabia's recent North Korea-like cry for US attention -- announcing it was downgrading ties with its most important ally -- was all just drama for the camera. US Secretary of State John Kerry answered the plea of a weepy ally and again rushed to the Middle East to hold hands with his Saudi counterpart, Saud al Faisal. The ties have been mended, it seems, all is forgiven.

A last minute US pull-back from war, brokered by the Russians, left the Saudis without any muscle to back up their money.

Israel Attacks Syria -- Again!

Just as the mainstream press is reporting -- in astonishment -- that the Syrian government has actually abided by its unilaterally agreed upon pledge to submit its strategic chemical weapon deterrent to destruction by the international community, the international media is reporting that the Israeli military has once again launched a military attack against Syrian territory.

This marks at least the fifth time in 2013 that the Israeli military has, in clear violation of international law, launched military attacks against neighboring Syria. In violation of Lebanese airspace as well, it was reported that Israeli bombers flew over Lebanon to strike a Syrian military base near Latakia.

Intelligence Community Chiefs Push Back Against White House

It appears to me that James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and Michael Hayden, former Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) and NSA director, have decided that the Obama White House has been trying to "stake them out" as sacrificial goats in the kerfluffle over NSA intercepts in Europe. 

The Obama Administration has been trying to claim that such intercepts are a new development brought on by technological advances in the last decade. They are also trying to imply that NSA and the Intelligence Community (IC) generally have been "off the reservation" and conducting intercept operations that Barack Obama (the commander in chief of the IC) did not know of.
