OT - Yet another version of the Benghazi consulate attack has come out.
CIA is taking the fall...latest disclosure in in WSJ (behind pay wall) but Blake Hounshell tweeted the juicy stuff...here it is -

Blake Hounshell (@blakehounshell) 11/1/12, 9:46 PM (I'm not going to repeat his header - every line was a separate tweet..)

WSJ: "The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation, according to officials briefed on the intelligence."

"Of the more than 30 American officials evacuated from Benghazi following the deadly assault, only seven worked for the State Department."

"Nearly all the rest worked for the CIA, under diplomatic cover, which was a principal purpose of the consulate, these officials said."

More WSJ: "The CIA's secret role helps explain why security appeared inadequate at the U.S. diplomatic facility."

"State Department officials believed that responsibility was set to be shouldered in part by CIA personnel in the city.

"Ö through a series of secret agreements that even some officials in Washington didn't know about.

WSJ: "At one point during the consulate siege, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton telephoned the CIA director directly to seek assistance."

"Real-time intelligence from the field was scarce and some officials at State and the Pentagon were largely in the dark about...CIA's role"

"Mr. Petraeus didn't attend funerals held later for the two CIA contractors, irking some administration officials and CIA veterans."

Another thing about the WSJ story: Whoever talked to the WSJ seems to have done so while Petraeus was traveling abroad (he's in Cairo).

Preparing for the Unexpected...

In every direction Israeli military planners look, new threats are emerging in varying degrees. On the Lebanese border, Hezbollah is constructing sophisticated subterranean rocket-launching sites and command and control centers. Ground forces will be required to take out these underground facilities in any future confrontation.

In the Sinai Peninsula and Syria, al-Qaida-inspired groups are mushrooming. In Gaza, Hamas together with Islamic Jihad and a host of smaller Palestinian jihadi organizations have built a heavily armed Islamist base which is on a long-term collision course with Israel.

Beyond the growing guerrilla-terrorist challenge, the IDF may yet have to quickly enter Syria to neutralize the threat of loose and mobile chemical weapons. And, of course, any strike on Iranís nuclear weapons program will almost certainly set off a regional conflict.

These developments are what led Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh to warn in mid-October that for the first time in years, Israel must be ready for unexpected security developments on multiple fronts.

3) When I was in the States, I met people who asked me seriously, if there were any cars in europe, or if they still use the horse, and if europe was still under nazi rule.
I also met very intelligent people with great knowledge, understanding and curiosity.

 Quoting: ^àTOn^


I can underscore that point 3 and your "I also" point.

A couple of years ago I was approached by an American citizen, who said he was so sorry that we in Europe were so suffering under communist rule and about all our poverty. When I explained to him that we were not, I was informed that I of course had to say that, otherwise I would end up in a camp.

When I confronted him with the fact that Holland (where I live) is member of NATO, he replied that I was lying. NATO was only the USA, Canada and England. All the rest of Europe was under Moscow. Sending him to the NATO website did not help.

He also did not understand that we have internet here (we have one the fast systems in the world), even though he was writing to me via that internet. I use 50MB download 5 MB upload / fastest connection on my cable network is 160/50MB.

About cars. When I asked him where all those Mercedeses, VW's and BMW's came from, he said "The USA". "And where do you think these companies have their headquarters?" "In the USA."

Your "car" experience was also experienced, but now in television. Another person, also from the USA, said he was sorry we didn't have television here. When I told him that Sweden, Denmark and Holland were 1, 2 and 3 on the world's most densely cable networks, he simply refused to accept that. Had he ever heard of the BBC? Yes, he had. That was an American radio station in WW2.

USA, don't be frightened, but there is a whole world on the other side of the oceans, and on many points we are WAY ahead of you! Did you know that the machines that make the chips for Intel are made in The Netherlands?

O, btw, we don't sit all day with our fingers in the levee (that too was an American invention - Mary Mapes Dodge 1831 - 1905), and we don't wear wooden shoes anymore. Yesterday we discovered leather.

I hope the USA will have a long life. Its citizens give us so much joy! ;)

I've actually had arguments with fellow Americans who could not accept the fact that Hitler was German. They were sure he was Russian. Many American are part-German, so they couldn't believe that Hitler would come from a civilized country like Germany...

When I told them Hitler was actually Austrian they felt better. They don't seem to realize Austrians are actually (ethnically) German too.

Windmill and Aton, I fully believe the conversations you had with Americans. Everyone in the States have had similar conversations, if they're being honest.

Having said that, my family lived in the Netherlands for 5 years. I can match all of your stories with similar ones from Europeans. I think it's a mistake to form opinions of an entire nation or race because of a few people. I don't think all Dutch people are idiots because they thought all people in Texas live on ranches like the actors in Dallas. I wish!LOL

Be careful with the brush you are painting people with, especially these days. That's what TPTB want you to do. Just as all Dutch are NOT drug using, prostitute visiting zombies, neither are all Americans uneducated, loud-mouthed red-necks.

There are good and bad people EVERYWHERE and to forget that, is a huge mistake. We are all individuals that happen to live where we do. We are NOT our governments, we are ALL pawns of them though. It isn't what we want, it's what we have to overcome. Even you.

If you could only see our little house! It's old and needs LOTS of love(elbow grease, hard work, and MONEY...lots and lots of it!!), but it's ours and I wouldn't trade it for all the high priced McMansions here! We've been fixing and replacing since we moved in and I doubt it will ever be the way it should be. :(

It's been 20 years since we lived in Holland, but I'll never believe it's gotten THAT bad. I truly hope not. When I remember all of the good people I knew, I have to hope they haven't changed that much.

When I moved away from my little home town over 30 years ago, I hated to leave. Now, every time I go back, it's a different place. New faces, new everything. I suppose the Holland I knew is something like that. Our family, for one, will always have a special place in our heart for the Netherlands and the Dutch people.

I know you don't, Aton. I guess I've just read/heard too much "anyone" bashing lately everywhere. Even in my po-dunk little town.

I'm just running out of patience lately. I have to admit, I'm guilty of laughing at the idiots, too. Anyone watch Jay Leno's bit of Jaywalking? Sad and funny at the same time.hf

Preparing for the Unexpected...

In every direction Israeli military planners look, new threats are emerging in varying degrees. On the Lebanese border, Hezbollah is constructing sophisticated subterranean rocket-launching sites and command and control centers. Ground forces will be required to take out these underground facilities in any future confrontation.

In the Sinai Peninsula and Syria, al-Qaida-inspired groups are mushrooming. In Gaza, Hamas together with Islamic Jihad and a host of smaller Palestinian jihadi organizations have built a heavily armed Islamist base which is on a long-term collision course with Israel.

Beyond the growing guerrilla-terrorist challenge, the IDF may yet have to quickly enter Syria to neutralize the threat of loose and mobile chemical weapons. And, of course, any strike on Iranís nuclear weapons program will almost certainly set off a regional conflict.

These developments are what led Deputy Chief of Staff Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh to warn in mid-October that for the first time in years, Israel must be ready for unexpected security developments on multiple fronts.

OT - Old Topic; New Article...

Will an Israeli strike on Iran come from Azerbaijan?

According to intelligence officials, Iranís security services have concluded that Azerbaijan, its Muslim neighbor to the north, has been enlisted by Israel in a campaign of cyber attacks, assassinations and detailed military planning aimed at destabilizing and ultimately destroying Tehranís nuclear research program.

That Iranian perspective, described by a range of current and former US intelligence officials who asked that their names remain confidential, has led to a crackdown on Iranís sizeable ethnic Azeri minority and the launch of an Iranian counter espionage offensive to destabilize the government of President Ilham Aliev. Ethnic Azeris are Iranís largest minority group, comprising about 16 percent of the population, mostly clustered along the northern border and in Tehran. . .

But one thing I know, in netherlands they always wear those wooden shoes, thats why they loose in soccer all the time.
LOL.

 Quoting: ^àTOn^


Aton, thanks for the info. I will pass this on to Louis van Gaal, the coach of the nation Dutch soccer team.

Anyway, it is not "all the time". Ajax has won the Europa cup 1 many times on those wooden shoes (Feyenoord and PSV each one time), and the national soccer team was European champion in 1988 and ended 2nd 3 times in the world championships in Germany (1974) Argentina (1978) and recently in South Africa (2010). Not bad for a team on wooden shoes. At the moment a new team is being built that will play on soft wooden shoes! Development never stops, you know. nanni2
