    The letter at my post #32 is a primary source, not from WND. It is easy to dismiss inconvenient facts as conspiracy theories. My trust in government provided information and the products of government appointed commissions is suspect. We have too many examples of the where the government has lied to us. I say that as someone who worked for the USG for 36 years.

    Obama has raised misinformation and storytelling to a new high. It is the reason trust in government is at historic lows. The questions around Fast and Furious, the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the Iran Deal, etc. are just, for you, conspiracies. Let's see how Hillary's email scandal is handled. If it is whitewashed, we will learn how corrupt our government is, including the career bureaucracy.

    Foster’s apparent suicide was quite suspicious. Two investigators – Robert Fiske and Kenneth Starr – separately concluded that Foster shot himself and died, due to suicide.

    But over time, major questions have been raised about what may have really killed him. Now, recently discovered evidence blows the case wide open!

    Discovered in the files of the National Archives and Records Administration, Starr’s lead prosecutor Miguel Rodriguez submitted a 2-page resignation letter and a 31 page memo about the injuries Foster sustained. Rodriguez notes in the letter details about injuries around Foster’s neck which were not reported in official government documents.

    At the time, the FBi claimed that Foster’s neck injury photos were underexposed, and therefore useless to them.

    Rodriguez claims that after he produced additinal damning evidence of a possible Foster murder coverup, he became a target and was investigated internally!

    The link I provided is to an interview with the author of the book that shows the Shia has zero to do with the Mosque siege and in fact the Saudis sought to blame the Iranians to deflect away from the real culprits.

    You are missing the point. The issue is what is the seminal event that has led to Islamic terrorism throughout the world. I posit that it has been the Iranian Revolution.

    When I arrived in Tehran in 1977, Iran was a solid US ally. There were over 70,000 Americans in Tehran. You could buy Playboy off the newsstands. Women were in Western dress. There were over 50,000 Iranians studying in the US, the largest of any country. There was a permanent official Israeli trade mission in Tehran. Iranian relations with Israel and the Saudis were excellent.

    The Iranian Revolution reversed it all and literally on the arrival of Khomeini in the country in early February 1979. I left on March 31, 1979. It was a different country overnight. The women all were in chadors. The armed mujaheddin roamed the streets. And on Feb 14, 1979 our embassy was overrun and occupied for over three months, which included looting and harassment.

    Khomeini provided money, training, and arms to both Hizballah (Shi'a) and Hamas (Sunni). Iran continues to do so along with assisting Palestinian terrorist groups in Gaza.

    Iran views Syria as a crucial causeway in its weapons supply route to Lebanese Hizballah, its primary beneficiary, and as a key pillar in its “resistance” front. In 2014, Iran continued to provide arms, financing, training, and the facilitation of primarily Iraqi Shia and Afghan fighters to support the Asad regime’s brutal crackdown that has resulted in the deaths of at least 191,000 people in Syria, according to August UN estimates. Iran publicly admits to sending members of the IRGC to Syria in an advisory role. There is consistent media reporting that some of these troops are IRGC-QF members and that they have taken part in direct combat operations.

    The bottom line is that Iran remains the biggest state sponsor of terrorism and it really matters not if they are Shi'a or Sunni.

    Iran remained unwilling to bring to justice senior al-Qa’ida (AQ) members it continued to detain, and refused to publicly identify those senior members in its custody. Iran previously allowed AQ facilitators to operate a core facilitation pipeline through Iran since at least 2009, enabling AQ to move funds and fighters to South Asia and Syria.

    The U.S. indictment of bin Laden filed in 1998 stated that al-Qaeda "forged alliances . . . with the government of Iran and its associated terrorist group Hezbollah for the purpose of working together against their perceived common enemies." On May 31, 2001, Steven Emerson and Daniel Pipes wrote in The Wall Street Journal that "Officials of the Iranian government helped arrange advanced weapons and explosives training for Al-Qaeda personnel in Lebanon where they learned, for example, how to destroy large buildings."

    The 9/11 Commission Report stated that 8 to 10 of the hijackers on 9/11 passed through Iran and their travel was facilitated by Iranian border guards. The report also noted that "a senior operative of Hezbollah" (Imad Mughniyah) was on the flights that convoyed the future hijackers from Saudi Arabia to Tehran, along with associates that Kenneth Timmerman describes as "Iranian agents". The extent of Iranian involvement has been questioned due to major differences between the religious ideologies of Iran and al Qaeda; according to the 9/11 Commission report, Mughniyah's presence on flights carrying the hijackers to Iran may have been a "remarkable coincidence." After the commission called for "further investigation" into a possible Iranian role in the attacks, President George W. Bush demanded that Iran sever its ties with al-Qaeda, while saying that in his view, "There was no direct connection between Iran and the attacks of September 11.

    In February 2014, the US Treasury Department stated that Iran was helping al Qaeda transfer fighters into Syria, with key smuggler Olimzhon Adkhamovich Sadikov providing "visas and passports to numerous foreign fighters."

    In March 2015, a US federal judge found Iran, along with Sudan, complicit in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole by AQ, stating, "Iran was directly involved in establishing Al-Qaeda’s Yemen network and supported training and logistics for Al-Qaeda in the Gulf region", and that “Iran used Lebanese Hizballah . . . as its primary ‘facilitator’ for providing training and communications support."

    Until there is regime change in Iran, militant Islamic fundamentalism will continue to increase. Iran is the source of most of it and they precipitated the current division between Sunni and Shi'a. If they get a nuclear weapon, I can assure you that the Saudis will get one as well. They are two scorpions in a bottle each bent on the destruction of the other.

    Saudi Disinfo bullshit.

    More Iranian apologist crap. The Iranian Revolution spawned all that followed, including the seizure of the Kaaba.

    I suggest you read the link I provided, The Siege of Mecca The Forgotten Uprising in Islam's Holiest Shrine and the Birth of al Qaeda by Yaroslav Trofimov

    The point is now whether Sunnis perpetrated the seizure of the Kaaba, but what were their motivations and why the Saudis responded the way they did. You just have to take a look at the chronology of events in 1978 and 1979 to see how the Iranian Revolution influenced so many events around the world. The rise of militant Islamic fundamentalism sent shock-waves throughout the Muslim world in much the same way as the Arab Spring.

    Khomeini was an existential threat to the Saudi Royal Family as was OBL. The Saudis beheaded the perpetrators of the seizure of the Kaaba. The Saudi reaction to the seizure of the Grand Mosque was to prevent a similar event happening in the Kingdom. Khomeini's incendiary remarks after the seizure is evidence that he was trying to capitalize on the event.

    The revolution was doubtless a watershed moment in the history of the region and beyond. After assuming power, Ayatollah Khomeini did not hesitate to challenge the status quo of the entire region in a radical way. He called upon all Muslims, irrespective of sect, to rise up as Iranians had done and rid their countries of monarchies and western-backed dictators. His call did not fall on deaf ears.

    Iran became an exemplar for action which, coupled with complex local circumstances, proved very consequential. Shi’ites led by Ayatollah Muhammad Baqir as-Sadr, the so-called “Khomeini of Iraq,” led a revolt against Saddam’s Ba’athist rule in 1980, and a four-month uprising in Saudi Arabia engulfed the peninsula’s east. What’s more, Kuwaiti militants unleashed a bombing campaign, and there was an attempted Iranian-inspired coup in Bahrain. Even Sunni Islamists across the region found inspiration in Iran’s revolution and Iran supported Sunni Muslims in Bosnia during the Balkan Wars and Palestinians via radical Sunni Islamist groups such as Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

    Khomeini held special disdain for the Saudi monarchy and challenged the dynasty’s Islamic credentials. In an attempt to buttress his Islamic authority, the Saudi monarch exploited the legitimacy that Mecca and Medina afforded him by adopting the title “Custodian of the Two Holy Sites.” Furthermore, the Saudis took a more proactive anti-Shi’ite and anti-Iranian approach in their foreign policy in order to inundate Iran’s revolutionary message.

    Thus, although the Shi’ite-Sunni divide has its origins in Islam’s early years, its explosive modern ramifications, which are manifest in ISIS’s puritanical and venomous anti-Shi’ism, are more directly a consequence of Saudi foreign policy since 1979. Prior to Iran’s revolution, Iran and Saudi Arabia worked closely to counter common threats. They parted ways after the Iranian Revolution when the Saudis responded to Khomeini’s revolutionary call by de-legitimizing Shi’ites across the Muslim world as a means by which to counter Iran’s ideological challenge and safeguard the continuity of the Saudi royal family’s rule.

    I wonder why no one in the west ever comments on the Sunni Muslim Mosque siege of 1979? What happened in Iran was linked to the Shia but in 1979 Sunni fanatics declared there was a Mahdi and took over the Kaaba Mosque. It took French mercenaries and Pakistanis to take it back in bloody fighting.

    The seizure of the Kaaba in Mecca on November 20, 1979 was one of the consequences of the Iranian Revolution. Many of the demands of the occupiers mirrored what Khomeini used to topple the Shah, i.e., a repudiation of the West and its influences, a return to the fundamentals of Islam, and the removal of the country's rulers, the House of Saud.

    Juhayman had turned against al-Baaz, "and began advocating a return to the original ways of Islam, among other things; a repudiation of the West; abolition of television and expulsion of non-Muslims." He proclaimed that "the ruling Al-Saud dynasty had lost its legitimacy because it was corrupt, ostentatious and had destroyed Saudi culture by an aggressive policy of Westernization."

    The successful Iranian Revolution that deposed the Shah, installed Khomeini as the head of a theocratic state, and resulted in the mass exodus of Westerners from Iran were the inspiration for Juhayman al-Otaybi, a member of an influential family in Najd. The departure of the Shah from Iran on January 16, 1979 marked the end of US influence in Iran. And the seizure of our Embassy on November 4, 1979 coupled with a weak response by Carter signaled to the rest of the world that radical, Islamic fundamentalism could defeat the West and that they should not be feared. The Kaaba was seized two weeks later on November 20.

    Shortly after news of the takeover was released, the new Islamic revolutionary leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini told radio listeners, "It is not beyond guessing that this is the work of criminal American imperialism and international Zionism." Anger fueled by these rumors spread anti-American demonstrations throughout the Muslim world—in the Philippines, Turkey, Bangladesh, eastern Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan.] In Islamabad, Pakistan, on the day following the takeover, the U.S. embassy in that city was overrun by a mob, which burned the embassy to the ground. A week later, in Tripoli, Libya, another mob attacked and burned the U.S. embassy.

    Before that the Saudis were modernizing and allowed for television (that freaked the Wahabist out) and they banned slavery in 1965 and other "reforms". The Mosque siege so freaked out the Saudis that they made a deal with the religious fanatics to become even more religious in their laws and to fund wahabist mosques all over the world.

    The Saudi Royal Family was spooked by what happened to the Shah in Iran and the seizure of the Grand Mosque. They did not want to suffer a similar fate as the Shah. They understood their unique role in Islam. The Saudi King started using the title of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in 1986 with King Fahd. FYI: The Saudis have television and have had for decades. It is state controlled but satellite dishes abound.

    With the start of the Afghan war the Saudis had a way to export their hotheads to die in jihad. I think I read somewhere that Osama Bin Laden was deeply affected by the Mosque siege and may have been a sympathizer.

    You need to read OBL's fatwas. In August of 1996, Osama bin Laden issued his first fatwa, a 30-page polemic entitled "Declaration of War Against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places," against the United States and Israel, and it was published in a London newspaper called Al Quds al Arabi. /

    The second fatwa was published on February 23, 1998, in Al Quds al Arabi. Unlike the first fatwa, which was issued by Osama bin Laden alone, this fatwa was signed by Osama bin Laden; Ayman al-Zawahiri, leader of Jihad group in Egypt and al Qaeda second-in-command; Abu-Yasir Rafa'l Ahmad Taha, leader of the Islamic Group; Sheikh Mir Hamzah, secretary of the Jumiat-ut-Ulema-e-Pakistan; and Fazlul Rahman, leader of the Jihad Movement in Bangladesh.

    OBL was a wanted man in Saudi Arabia. The Royal Family deemed him a dangerous enemy.

    The US was engaged with the Saudis and others to oust the Soviets from Afghanistan. We provided money and arms and the Saudis acted as our surrogates in various ways. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan on December 25, 1979.

    It is also worth noting that Iraq invaded Iran on September 22, 1980. It followed a long history of border disputes, and was motivated by fears that the Iranian Revolution in 1979 would inspire insurgency among Iraq's long-suppressed Shi'i majority, as well as Iraq's desire to replace Iran as the dominant Persian Gulf state.

    Ignore Iran - in regards to ISIS and al-Qaeda Iran is meaningless because they are Persians and Shia.

    No, ISIS and AQ are the children of the Iranian Revolution and Khomeini.

    The Siege of Mecca The Forgotten Uprising in Islam's Holiest Shrine and the Birth of al Qaeda

    The government was stunned and slow in understanding what was happening. They tried to seal off news of the event to the outside world, but some Americans managed to notify the Carter administration in Washington. Washington played on fears of its enemy, Iran under Ayatollah Khomeini, which was holding hostages at the U.S. embassy. An assumption was made that the rebels at the Grand Mosque were Shia spreading Khomeini's revolution. This was passed to the media, an article in the New York Times quoting an American official who described the militants in Mecca as likely to be responding to Khomeini's call for an "uprising by fundamentalist Muslims." President Carter decided that he had to act, and he ordered a battle group from Subic Bay in the Philippines including the carrier Kitty Hawk to the Persian Gulf to enhance Saudi Arabia's sense of security.

    The rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and its fervent anti-Shi’ite worldview has once again sparked the debate about the “age-old” conflict between Shi’ites and Sunnis with countless “experts” offering analysis rife with clichés that the two largest Islamic sects have been fighting each other for “centuries” and even “millennia.” A brief glance at history not only dispels this notion but demonstrates that the rise of Shi’ite-Sunni sectarian warfare has its roots not in the distant 7th century, but in Saudi Arabia’s response to Iran’s Islamic Revolution in 1979, when the Saudi regime as a matter of policy began to counter Iran’s revolution by financing anti-Shi’ite Islamists across the Muslim world. That policy has born fruition with Islamists in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and elsewhere taking up arms in the name of an Islam that is diametrically opposed to Shi’ism, the minority sect in Islam.

    I don't recall reading or hearing any "mechanical failure" explanation. I think two windows were compromised. The fixed one right in front, and an opening one to the side.

    Palkot claimed that an aviation expert surmised based on the data transmitted from the plane to satellites, that an electrical fire under the cockpit could have caused the plane to lose its controls and result in the kind of gyrations it went into before falling into the ocean. Palkot said that this was clear evidence that Trump was probably mistaken on his assertion that it was a terrorist incident. Palkot touted this unnamed aviation expert, a longtime friend of his, as being almost unchallenged in his knowledge of such events.

    All yesterday, Fox kept re-airing Trump's assertion that it was a terrorist incident to such an extent that the incident itself took second place to proving Trump wrong on his un-presidental statements of declaring what went wrong before all the facts were in.

    I think the most important of the above we have to counter is the female vote. I hate to think there are women out there that would vote for her simply because she is a female.

    IMO race and ethnicity have more to do with the women's vote than gender. When you take a look at the 2012 exit polls, Romney won the white woman's vote 56% to 42%. They comprised 38% of the electorate.

    Romney lost the black women's vote 96% to 3%. They comprised 8% of the total vote. Romney lost the Latina vote 76% to 23% and they comprised 6% of the total vote. Other women and men combined (Asian, and mixed race) voted against Romney 66% to 31% and they comprised 5% of the total vote.

    When you see that Romney lost 19% of the electorate by such wide margins, it skews the women's vote, which Obama won 55% to 44%. What the Reps are facing is the loss of minority women's vote, not women in general. If Trump were able to win a greater percentage of the white woman's vote, he would more than negate Hillary's advantage.

    Fox seems obsessed with Trump's 100% assertion that the Egypt Air tragedy was a terrorist incident. Greg Palkot breathless reported yesterday that it could have been a mechanical/electrical problem thus disproving Trump's assertion.

    The McCaul interview was interesting in that he said that among other things, one of the cockpit windows was blown out--the first time I have ever heard that mentioned. I suspect that the government already knows it is a terrorist incident. The Egyptian and French governments already have said as much.

    Saudi Arabia and Pakistan are the biggest sponsors of terrorism in the world

    False. Khomeini ushered in the modern era of radical Islamic fundamentalism. They have sponsored Hezbollah and Hamas; they overran our Embassy in Tehran twice and held our diplomats hostage for 444 days; they blew up Khobar Towers;and they provided weapons and advisors to kill Americans in Iraq. They were involved in terrorist activities in Lebanon, India, Bahrain, Argentina, Israel, and Bulgaria. These are just a few examples of their decades long sponsorship of terrorism.

    Stopping Iran’s meddling in the Middle East Iraq’s persistent strife is orchestrated in Tehran

    but the most blood thirsty nut jobs are the wahabist Sunnis.

    OBL hated the Saudi Royal family. Read his 1996 and 1998 fatwas. The Saudi Royal family has been the target of AQ attacks.

    And the difference between Iran and Saudi Arabia on women’s right is a difference with distinction.

    LOL. It is like discussing the extent of virtue among prostitutes. Why are you such a big defender of the mullahs in Iran? And the Shi'a? Why is Iran seeking nuclear weapons?

    As for the Shia flagellation - I have seen Catholics do worse on Easter.

    You are ridiculous. You know nothing and have seen very little.

    Women in Iran are even freere/have more rights than the Saudis.

    A difference without a distinction. Iranian women used to be among the freest in the Islamic world when the Shah was in power. That all ended with Khomeini. They may have a few more freedoms than Saudis, but not compared to Turkey or Indonesia.

    Again, Shi'a make up only 10% of the Muslims in the world. They reside primarily in Iran. Iran is the biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. They helped kill many Americans in Iraq.

    With that said, the Iranian Shia seem to have the saner version of Islam compared to the Sunni Saudi version pushed by ISIS and al-Qaeda.

    I lived two years in Iran and 5 years in Saudi Arabia. Have you ever heard of the shi'a Ashura celebrations, i.e., self-flagellation? The Shi'a only comprise about 10% of Muslims worldwide. They are not the saner version of Islam. I found their version to be more violent and aggressive.

    Iraq Shi'ite Muslim men bleed as they slice their foreheads with swords and beat themselves to commemorate Ashura in Sadr City, Baghdad.

    Shia Muslims worldwide cut themselves with swords and knives, covered their bodies with mud and lit bonfires in the streets to mourn the death of the Prophet Muhammad's grandson today.

    The rituals mark the holy Day of Ashura, which is the tenth day of the "mourning month" of Muharram, when Shi'ite Muslims remember the death of Imam Hussein (Husayn Ibn Ali) at the Battle of Karbala in 680 AD.

    Imam Hussein's martyrdom is widely interpreted by Shia as a symbol of the struggle against injustice, tyranny and oppression.

    Sounds like a BS story given the source and how it is written. Are the captured US and French intelligence agents actual citizens of France and the US or paid operatives from some other countries?

    We need more reliable sources.

    Please provide some specific examples where “birthers”, I consider myself one, have said that the parents must have also been born on US soil to covey NBC. As long as both parents are US citizens at the time of birth and the child is born in the US as is the case with Trump, there is no question that Trump is a NBC.

    There are some areas where “birthers” disagree, but in the case of Trump, there is no disagreement.

    The same day that our Embassy in Tehran was overrun the first time, February 14, 1979, our Ambassador to Afghanistan, Spike Dubs, was assassinated in Kabul.

    I was in Tehran at the time. There is no doubt that the rise of Islamic fundamentalism started in 1979 when Khomeini hijacked the Iranian Revolution.

    Kris Kobach proposes we just tax the remittances. We could also add a visa fee for Mexican citizens. Or add a special tariff to Mexican imports to construct and maintain the wall,

    There are plenty of ways to get Mexico to pay for the wall without getting their agreement to do so.

    I was struck how modest his grave is compared to many others in Arlington for far lesser persnages. Aside from its prominent location, his tombstone is like the many thousands of other Americans who are interred there. It is still the second most visited grave in Arlington after JFK's.
