US Creates and Uses Terrorist Groups To Create Mayhem. Victoire Ingabiere Kept in the Dark for Lighting the Path to Democracy. Canadian Forces in Iraq: The Fog of War and the Fog of Journalism?
Zafar Bangash, Ann Garrison, Scott Taylor
Zafar Bangash explains how the US created the Sunni militia, which became Al Qaeda and then ISIS in Iraq. Bangash points out that both the Shia and Sunni want to get rid of the barbaric ISIS, and they are moving forward in a careful and methodical manner (to avoid landmines and snipers). Once Tikrit is liberated then the destination is Mosul. There are no Europeans nor Americans telling them how to fight.
Ann Garrison gives the latest status of Rwandan five-year political prisoner Victoire Ingabiere, whose eyesight has been damaged due to being keep in dark, black cell.
Ingabiere's "crime" was attempting to run for president of Rwanda and establish a real democracy. She was arrested and falsely charged with crimes related to terrorism, speech crimes related to genocide, as are many of those who attempt to support her in Rwanda and/or who question the Kagame regime.
Garrison also comments on the lunacy of Canadian public safety minister for invoking the Holocaust in an attempt to defend Canadian "anti-terrorism" Bill C-51, which would give the government extraordinary powers to target and jail Canadian peaceful activists.

Obama’s plans indicate the real goal is regime change in Syria. Baird Throwing Canadian Special Operations Regiment into a Bubbling Cesspit in Iraq.
Stephen Gowans, Scott Taylor
Gowans compares the shoddy rebuilding of Iraq to the huge Gulf State injections of cash to Iraq's ISIS enemies. U.S. 'trainers' for Iraq are really liasons to keep an eye on their weak client.
Meanwhile, U.S.-backed rebels degrade and destroy Syria, a country that is fighting ISIS. Why is it okay in U.S. parlance for 'moderate' Wahabi extremists to cut heads in Syria, but not American heads in Iraq?
Now, we witness U.S. media manufacturing consent for an attack on Syria by obfuscating who is doing the headchopping there. Hint: It's not the Syrian government.
Scott Taylor relies on his extensive experience in Iraq to counter Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird's committing military contingency to the Kurdish region in northern Iraq.
Baird explains that the Canadians are not familiar with the complexity of the conflicts or the tribes in Iraq, Kurdistan, eastern Turkey. They are not ready for the "trip wires" they will encounter. This is not a good guy vs bad guy situation. It is a prison knife fight under blackout conditions.
Baird is committing Canada to Pandora's Box from which the lid has long since been removed.
