Cheney shooting: A multi-layered, staged managed distraction
- Cheney shooting: A multi-layered, staged managed distraction
The Dick Cheney shooting "accident" is now well into its second week of news domination - its time to ask the question, WHY?
As we have exposed over the past week, the official line on the incident is obviously flawed and multiple mysteries and discrepancies still surround the event. This, In addition to the underlying stupidity of it that continues to provide a hotbed of golden material for satirists, has ensured that the story has stuck around the front pages.
The multiple delays in releasing certain information to the media, and the too-obvious inconsistencies and easily visible cover ups within the entire tale smack of a staged managed government propaganda operation.
This op is multi-layered. On one level it distracts the satirical crowd (John Stewart et al) and the American public who still pay any attention to the news.
On another level it has distracted the mainstream media, that now seems to be fascinated with the fact that they are being openly manipulated and controlled into reporting what the Straussian usurpers in Government want them to report, whilst playing directly into their hands and completely ignoring the reality of the Cheney shooting, the smoking gun if you'll pardon the pun.
And on a third level the incident has also distracted the alternative media who have become embroiled in a struggle to reveal the blatant inconsistencies of the whole thing. Whenever something like this happens we tend to go to autopilot and search for the truth because we now know that 99% of what the government tells us about current events is pure pap.
So over the past week we have relentlessly exposed the blatant lies behind this latest incident, and rightly so. After all someone has to.
But let's take a look at some of the things that have more or less washed over us recently. Once we do it quickly becomes clear that if ever the government needed a pointless distraction, it has been over the past ten days.
FAKE TERROR PLOT
The major story just as the Cheney shooting broke was the fact that the latest NeoCon war on terror justification evidence was being declared as total lies by expert after expert.
Bush had announced that four Southeast Asians who met with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan in October 2001 were foiled in their attempts to use shoe bombs to blow open a cockpit door and steer a plane into the Library Tower in LA. Fox news immediately began to air footage of the same building being blown up by aliens in the film Independence Day.
The mainstream media was picking up on this (after everyone else as per usual) and running with it. Suddenly CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
ARMY BEATING UP IRAQI CHILDREN
On the same day as the shooting story broke, Details emerged of a shocking video revealed scores of British soldiers brutally beating and kicking defenceless Iraqi teenagers in an army compound.
The video dated back to 2004 and documented how the children had been throwing stones at the soldiers and were then chased down by scores of British troops, rounded up and beaten to a pulp. Outrage ensued and the front pages were uniform in their cries for action on the matter. Suddenly CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
UN REPORT CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE CLOSURE OF GITMO
On the 13th, a United Nations inquiry called for the immediate closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention centre and the prosecution of officers and politicians "up to the highest level" who are accused of torturing detainees.
The report demanded that the Bush administration ensure that all allegations of torture are investigated by US criminal courts, and that "all perpetrators up to the highest level of military and political command are brought to justice".
This was kept off the front pages as CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
MORE ABU GHRAIB TORTURE PHOTOS LEAKED
On the 15th of Feb, an Australian network broadcast about 60 previously unpublished photographs that the US Government had been fighting to keep secret in a court case with the American Civil Liberties Union.
A leaked report from the US army's internal investigation into the scandal quickly followed and revealed the full extent of the horrific torture policies in place there. It said the material, gathered by the army's criminal investigation division, included 1,325 photographs and 93 video clips of suspected abuse of detainees, 546 photographs of suspected dead Iraqi detainees, as well as 660 images of adult pornography, and 29 pictures of US troops engaged in simulated sex acts.
This was kept off the front pages due to the fact that CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
PATRIOT ACT HEADED FOR PERMANENT RENEWAL
"The outcome here is absolutely predetermined," Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., said late Wednesday. "It's going to pass with overwhelming support."
The USA Patriot Act is headed toward renewal with most of its onerous individual rights violations intact and broad Senate support for a White House-brokered compromise that adds a few token new civil liberties protections to the terror-fighting law. Wrote Capitol Hill Blue.
The police state control grid is being put in place and everyone is more concerned with the fact that CHENEY SHOOTS MAN IN FACE.
$8.8 MILLION OF IRAQ RECONSTRUCTION FUNDS "MISSING"
Perhaps the most telling story we have been distracted from is this one. ON THE VERY SAME DAY as the Cheney shot Whittington story, CBS's 60 Minutes aired a report in which US expert Steward Bowen, who is auditing funds financing Iraq reconstruction programs announced that around $8.8 million had simply vanished.
Wide spread war profiteering is going on, the main culprit being Halliburton who have have collected half of all the money awarded to contractors in Iraq, and, according to Department of Defense auditors, have over-billed taxpayers more than a billion dollars.
In 2003, the Pentagon set up the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) to govern Iraq under Ambassador Paul Bremer, who hired private companies to secure and rebuild the country. No bid contracts.
Frank Willis, who was the No. 2 man at the Coalition Provisional Authoritys Ministry of Transportation was quoted in the CBS report:
"I think that what they were doing was of the nature of what I understand war-profiteering to be about which is to get into a chaotic situation and milk every penny out of it you can, as fast as you can, before the opportunity goes away,"
Of course, we know that Dick Cheney is deeply involved with Halliburton, once the CEO and still profiting from their "success" with over $40 million in stocks. So wasn't it a coincidence that on the eve of this major report he SHOT A MAN IN THE FACE.
Are these things not vitally more important to focus on than the fact that Dick Cheney got drunk and peppered an elderly man with pellets?
Clearly the perpetuation of the story and the slow leak of information to the press is being staged managed at the highest levels.
Yes it is our job to expose the incident as a fraud, but let's not forget WHY it is a fraud and WHY they are perpetrating the fraud.---------------------------------------------
