Seymour Hersh: Saudis Paid Pakistan to Hold bin Laden To Prevent U.S. Interrogation





"The Saudis bribed the Pakistanis not to tell us [that the Pakistani government had Bin Laden] because they didn’t want us interrogating Bin Laden (that’s my best guess), because he would’ve talked to us, probably. My guess is, we don’t know anything really about 9/11. We just don’t know. We don’t know what role was played by whom."

Belgium May Make Major Shift Toward Fascism In Wake Of Brussels Terror Attacks





Just one day after the coordinated attacks in Brussels, the resounding cry from governments, media, and national security experts is that we need less freedoms and more security. “Our tolerance of electronic surveillance... seems a small price to pay for some measure of security against threats that nobody - today of all days - can doubt are real.”

Information is power, and presidents get the information that Washington wants them to receive.
