    I don’t know if 911 was an inside job. But it was surely blowback from western meddling and de facto imperialism in the middle east. The US was never bombed by a foreign terrorist group prior to after the first gulf war which Clinton and the filthy House of Saud and other non democratic kingdoms in the Persian gulf area allowed US military bases a stone’s throw from mecca and elsewhere. 911 was an effect, western and especially US imperialism was the cause. David Cameron and President would make good nazi ss officers. They are pathological liars(compartmentalization). Iran could do a much better and quicker and less violent job of defeating ISIS. What it all comes down to is western control of middle east oil. what else is not news. It goes back to the over throw of Iran democracy in 1953 led by the Secular democratically elected prime minister Mohammad Mossadegh and even further back in time. The 1953 Iran regime change was conducted by cia and mi6 for the benefit of British Petroleum.

      ok perhaps Iran would not be less violent in fighting Isis. But I think Iran today would not be massively bombing. In the US here we get news like 100 isis terrorists killed by US bombing. And more often than not half of those terrorists are children. I think Iran would be truly doing targeted fighting better than our so called western “smart bombs”. And of course they would have the Syrian government military ally with themn

  2. What Rita Katz said on CNN, that KITE obtained and released the Sotloff video before ISIS, calls for a very serious investigation. The obvious question is HOW could KITE publicize the video before ISIS posted it? Nobody has the ability to obtain a video from an individual or organization who operates a YouTube channel BEFORE that individual or organization posted it on YouTube; in other words, Rita Katz, by stating KITE posted ISIS’ Sotloff video first, told CNN her company KITE pulled off an IMPOSSIBLE feat.
