    The War Danger Grows

    The recent appointment of former Saudi Ambassador to the U.S., Prince Bandar bin Sultan, as that nation's intelligence chief, puts one of the key culprits behind 9/11 in a position to wreak further havoc in the Middle East and beyond.



  • Geithner Can Lie, But He Can't Hide His Crimes
    Geithner's sordid and criminal efforts on behalf of the murderous Wall Street and British system have become a major point of attack for those committed to saving the nation by removing President Obama from office, and restoring a financial system that can bring the U.S. and the world out of what is otherwise a terminal crisis.
