I found this article from the Times of India today, and was wondering if any of you anti-war, and extra anti-covert war extremists had heard about this.
Not only is this a war most Americans are ignorant of, not only has the US been bombing villages with drones that have killed countless innocent civilians, including children, not only is the CIA operating a *covert* army, but that army is made up of Afghan personnel!
From the article:
"This heavily-armed irregular force manned entirely by Afghan personnel operates in small units called Counter- terrorism Pursuit Teams, the New York Times reported today quoting extracts from a new book 'Obama's wars'(sic) by journalist Bob Woodward."
I have been pretty steamed over the all-but-unannounced Pakistan war since I found out about it (which sadly, was only months ago), but this is just the cherry on the freaking sundae.

Wallace is a snake. Hope Rand performs deftly and cautiously with this one.
Like Pierre, I watch what the intelligence officials have to say very closely. They usually say exactly what they mean, you simply must know how to listen.
Diane opens with a truthful nugget: "Al Qaeda has new ways of recruiting people inside this country."
Now, if you know that Brezinski and his buddies created Al Qaeda, you understand that Diane just told you that the CIA has been successful at the divide and conquer tactic, and now US citizens are at the verge of civil unrest.
Next little thing that most folks will miss? "In the past 18 months or so, at least 63 Americans have been arrested or convicted of terrorism charges."
OK, that is a pretty fuzzy timeline... and a pretty fuzzy number... and being arrested is really not at all the same as being convicted, so how many were arrested and then charges dropped, and how many were convicted? Therein lies your "terrorism." How many of those "at least 63" were political protesters who were tazed, tossed in the slammer overnight, then released? The terrorists are bragging, here.
Napolitano tells us we need to "assume it (this high number) is not an abberation." In other words, assume they were all terrorists, regardless of guilt or innocence.
I am not going to transcribe Robert Mueller's testimony - go listen and watch him for yourself. It is choice. And a warning, if you know how to listen. And Pierre sums it all up so nicely, too,
You have been warned. Watch out for Al-CIA(duh.) They have recruited more people who are immune from prosecution. They are preparing for another attack.
Dear Morning Call
Ever since you prevented Jake Towne from the debate to take place on Oct. 14th I am quite sad inside me and worried about the future of America its path.
Let me explain.
I was born in at the time Communist Poland and let me tell you in the capital city Warsaw where I lived we only had TWO TV stations...and TWO newspapers...so when you want to allow only TWO candidates to run for Pennsylvania's 15th district it makes my blood frozen to say the least.
The third choice appears to be the best one.
All you have to do is to look into his record his works...
Well worth watching.
Guess how much the head of the NY Librarian makes? Guess again. You will be wrong.
NY Libertarian Governor candidate Warren Redlich asks random NY'ers on his campaign to "Stop Wasting Money." Over 110,000 State public workers make over $100,000, and his plan is to cap State salary at $100,000 to save over $2 billion a year.

President Obama urgently looked for a way out of the war in Afghanistan last year, repeatedly pressing his top military advisers for an exit plan that they never gave him, according to secret meeting notes and documents cited in a new book by journalist Bob Woodward
Frustrated with his military commanders for consistently offering only options that required significantly more troops, Obama finally crafted his own strategy, dictating a classified six-page "terms sheet" that sought to limit U.S. involvement, Woodward reports in "Obama's Wars," to be released on Monday.
According to Woodward's meeting-by-meeting, memo-by-memo account of the 2009 Afghan strategy review, the president avoided talk of victory as he described his objectives.
"This needs to be a plan about how we're going to hand it off and get out of Afghanistan," Obama is quoted as telling White House aides as he laid out his reasons for adding 30,000 troops in a short-term escalation. "Everything we're doing has to be focused on how we're going to get to the point where we can reduce our footprint. It's in our national securiity interest. There cannot be any wiggle room."

Senator Patrick Leahy yesterday introduced the "Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act" (COICA). This flawed bill would allow the Attorney General and the Department of Justice to break the Internet one domain at a time — by requiring domain registrars/registries, ISPs, DNS providers, and others to block Internet users from reaching certain websites. The bill would also create two Internet blacklists. The first is a list of all the websites hit with a censorship court order from the Attorney General. The second, more worrying, blacklist is a list of domain names that the Department of Justice determines — without judicial review — are "dedicated to infringing activities." The bill only requires blocking for domains in the first list, but strongly suggests that domains on the second list should be blocked as well by providing legal immunity for Internet intermediaries and DNS operators who decide to block domains on the second blacklist as well. (It's easy to predict that there will be tremendous pressure for Internet intermediaries of all stripes to block these "deemed infringing" sites on the second blacklist.)
COICA is a fairly short bill, but it could have a longstanding and dangerous impact on freedom of speech, current Internet architecture, copyright doctrine, foreign policy, and beyond. In 2010, if there's anything we've learned about efforts to re-write copyright law to target "piracy" online, it's that they are likely to have unintended consequences.
This is a censorship bill that runs roughshod over freedom of speech on the Internet...

Listen, most of us wouldn't be surprised to hear that Monsanto et al would not have to label its foods as GMO. But, unbelievably, the FDA has outlawed labeling food as NON-GMO. Too much information, according to the FDA apparatchiks "confuses the consumer."
WASHINGTON — Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Monday that the United States must be prepared to use military force to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon — and added that the last-resort step should be taken with the goal of overthrowing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
Graham, a military lawyer and a senior Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, became the first senator to support direct U.S. military intervention in Iran, saying it should not involve ground troops but be launched by U.S. warplanes and ships.
"If you use military force against Iran, you've opened up Pandora's box," Graham told the American Enterprise Institute in Washington. "If you allow Iran to get a nuclear weapon, you've emptied Pandora's box. I'd rather open up Pandora's box than empty it."
Graham's unusual public support for overturning Ahmadinejad and the ruling council of Shiite Muslim clerics that he nominally heads recalled President George W. Bush's controversial policy of regime change to invade Iraq in 2003 and overthrow dictator Saddam Hussein.
