Attempts to assassinate Assad and Israeli negotiations


03-01-19 11:34:00,

According to an anonymous official, cited abundantly in the Israeli press, General Aviv Kochavi (director of military intelligence from 2010 to 2014 and Tsahal’s future Chief of Staff) had probably organized several attempts to assassinate the elected Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad.

General Kochavi (see photo) thought that if Assad was eliminated, then Tsahal could invade Syria and destroy the Iranian bases there.

On the contrary, according to the same official who does not wish to be named, the Director of Mossad, Yossi Cohen, would have tried to negotiate with the Syrian Arab Republic, considering that if the Republic fell, this would generate chaos in the region.

Why Can The CIA Assassinate People?


06-12-18 08:53:00,

Authored by Jacob Hornberger via The Future Of Freedom Foundation,

Given that we have all been born and raised under a regime that has the CIA, hardly anyone questions the power of the CIA to assassinate people.

The CIA’s power of assassination has become a deeply established part of American life.

Yet, the Constitution, which called the federal government into existence and established its powers, does not authorize the federal government to assassinate people.

If the proponents of the Constitution had told the American people that the Constitution was bringing into existence a government that wielded the power to assassinate people, there is no way that Americans would have approved the deal, in which case they would have continued operating under the Articles of Confederation.

Under the Articles, the powers of the federal government were so weak, it didn’t even have the power to tax, much less the power to assassinate people. That’s because our American ancestors wanted it that way. The last thing they wanted was a federal government with vast powers.

In fact, the purpose of the Constitutional Convention was simply to amend the Articles of Confederation. During the 13 years of operating under the Articles, problems had arisen, such as trade wars between the states. The convention was intended to fix those problems with amendments to the Articles.

Instead, the delegates came out with an entirely different proposal, one that would call into existence a federal government that had more powers, including the power to tax.

Americans were leery. The last thing they wanted was a powerful central government. They had had enough of that type of government as British citizens under the British Empire. They believed that the biggest threat to people’s freedom and well-being lay with their own government. They believed that if they approved a federal government, it would become tyrannical and oppressive, like other governments had done throughout history.

They were especially concerned with the power of the government to murder people, including citizens. They knew that state-sponsored murder was the ultimate power in any tyrannical regime. When a government can kill anyone it wants with impunity, all other rights are effectively nullified.

“They Tried To Assassinate Me Today” Venezuela’s Maduro Says As US Denies Involvement

“They Tried To Assassinate Me Today” Venezuela’s Maduro Says As US Denies Involvement

05-08-18 07:34:00,

Update: Speaking on state TV a day after the alleged assassination attempt on Maduro, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said that six people have been taken into custody and more arrests are possible in the coming hours. He also said that two drones carrying 1 kg each of C-4 explosive were “disoriented” by govt. signal blockers.

He added that the government has raided several Caracas hotels in search for evidence, and noted that one suspect linked to a 2017 attack on Carabobo military base, another to last year’s anti-government protests.

Meanwhile speculation that this was just another false flag attack to build popular support for Maduro’s crumbling regime, continues to grow.

Was it a gas cylinder explosion? An assassination plot of US-allied groups? Or possibly the unheard of “National Movement of Soldiers in T-shirts” that are now claiming responsibility?

And where are the remnants or debris parts to any drones that may have been exploded, or possibly even live iPhone footage (though iPhones have been hard to come by in socialist Venezuela over the years) of drones overhead shot by any one of what appears to have been tens of thousands attending the event?

It seems the more details that come out surrounding the apparent drone assassination attempt of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Saturday afternoon, the stranger and more ambiguous it gets in terms of exactly what happened and who is responsible. 

For starters on Sunday morning US National Security Adviser John Bolton addressed charges of potential American involvement head on, telling Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, “I can say unequivocally there was no U.S. government involvement in this at all”.

This followed a speech by Maduro in what was his first formal statement since the incident wherein the controversial left-wing Venezuelan president described“They tried to assassinate me today,” while blaming the attack on right-wing factions specifically connected to Columbia and Florida.
