Great Segment!

Ben Swann needs to go mainstream!

Share your thoughts in a respectful way, and let CNN know how you feel and how they can change their ways by suggesting story ideas. You never know???


Communist News Network

Ben Swann should never join those liars.



Ben Swann should anchor Infowars Nightly News

Certainly a week of repeated FAIL!

Monetary Policy - QE3...FAIL

Foreign Policy - Libya...FAIL.

Did you know?

For the poster


Can I ask how you got he youtube video to preview in the Daily Paul? When I posted mine it was just a url.. thanks!

an opportunity

We are missing a big chance to spread the word of how if we had a more humble foreign policy this may have been diverted. This is the result of Secretary of State and the President encouraging citizens of nations to up-rise, and we see now it is backfiring. Intervening is the worst type of foreign relations.

Excellent journalism.


Except for incorrect headline :)

DO Libya attacks ... Not "does" Libya attacks ...
... Or alternatively : Does Libya attack change ...

Well if we're being semantic...

I meant on behalf of Benn Swann and his team, not the OP but thanks to him for this also...

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Obama cites war powers act on Libya

sending ground forces there...just heard on CNN

Libyan Attacks and U.S. elections

Does anyone besides me view these attacks on U.S. embassies provoked by a film, supposedly created by an Israeli and blamed on the U.S., coming on the heels of a snub of Netanyahu by Obama more than a coincidence? Former Gingrich sugar-daddy, and now Romney cash cow, Sheldon Adelson is a Likudnik. It looks to me like the snub of the Israeli leader by Obama was in retaliation for Adelson's backing of Willard. In a tit for tat, someone in Israeli intelligence started circulating the offensive movie to teach the President not to disrespect the Israeli leader. Whether they knew it would result in the Libyan attack and rape/murder of Stevens, is another topic for speculation. This, nevertheless, appears to be a false flag operation to create political trouble for Obama before the elections. The Mossad slogan is "By way of deception, you shall make war." If it looks like this to me, is the Obama administration fooled? Will there be some sort of retaliation against Likud coming soon to get back at them? There are at least four dead now. How far will this pissing match go?

In related news

I've just come away from listening to Michael Scheuer on the main BBC radio evening news. He rocked, giving the whole blowback explanation about US govt intervention in the ME, how the US has not won a war since 1945, and how it never intended to 'win' in Iraq and Afghanistan. The interviewer didn't know what to say, and that is saying something for a BBC newshound, who are generally quite liberal, and knock down any one who does not follow the script.

Appreciate Ben's efforts but

it's another distraction.

The real enemy lies here:

Anything short of abolishing ALL private central banks worldwide and the elimination of Zionism is a manufactured distraction.

What powerful central authority would you

support that would have the ultimate power of destroying all central banks and Zionism? I hope you were thinking of an intellectual awakening of all people world wide who then could peaceably choose to stop doing business with central banks and stop supporting all evil political players.


it takes brother.

I think our foreign policy

I think our foreign policy will be the biggest issue that we need to wake American's up to. I also think it's an issue that the C4L and others are taking lightly.

Worst case scenario, Rand runs in 2016 and "compromises" on issues like foreign policy.

This will all be played out by 2016.

TO Answer your question

It already has changed American foreign policy.

We are not talking about Syria, Hezbollah, Iran, or an Israeli strike.

The video that provoked this has had HUGE ramifications on developments in the middle east.
