Terror Inc. - Look in the Mirror

This is the flag that unites the North American Union merging Canada, USA and Mexico. Didn't know about it? Don't worry your pretty little head ...neither did congress in the USA or parliament in Canada or Mexico.
Bush, Martin and Fox signed the deal proving it matters not whether we have a conservative corporate owned Prime Minister or a liberal one.
In Canada we have also wakened to find our census system build has been sold to Lockheed Martin, the Canada pension plan is vested in American weaponry and we are now committed to spend billions to help protect the largest heroin crop in history as an extension of the US military and Bush CIA drug racket.

Moreover, our liberal government at the time of 9/11, allowed a man to be shipped to Syria for torture.
We are complicit in the support of a regime that has practiced torture for a long time - the USA, like the populace of Nazi Germany - we turn our heads and pretend it is not happening.

Teaching Torture
Congress quietly keeps School of the Americas alive
By Doug Ireland

Thursday, July 22, 2004 - 12:00 am

Remember how congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle deplored the torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib as “un-American”? Last Thursday, however, the House quietly passed a renewed appropriation that keeps open the U.S.’s most infamous torture-teaching institution, known as the School of the Americas (SOA), where the illegal physical and psychological abuse of prisoners of the kind the world condemned at Abu Ghraib and worse has been routinely taught for years.
A relic of the Cold War, the SOA was originally set up to train military, police and intelligence officers of U.S. allies south of the border in the fight against insurgencies Washington labeled “Communist.” In reality, the SOA’s graduates have been the shock troops of political repression, propping up a string of dictatorial and repressive regimes favored by the Pentagon.
The interrogation manuals long used at the SOA were made public in May by the National Security Archive, an independent research group, and posted on its Web site after they were declassified following Freedom of Information Act requests by, among others, the Baltimore Sun. In releasing the manuals, the NSA noted that they “describe ‘coercive techniques’ such as those used to mistreat the detainees at Abu Ghraib.”

Torture Manuals in use at School of Americas, 1982-1991
On Sept. 20, 1996, Pentagon officials announced that U.S. Army training manuals used to instruct Latin American military officers and soldiers at the SOA from 1982 until 1991, advocated torture, blackmail, and executions as counter insurgency measures. Father Roy Bourgeois Gets Peace Award. LINK NO LONGER WORKS. The Pentagon snuck out an admission that the students at the notorious School of the Americas at Fort Benning, Georgia, once used manuals advocating torture, assassination, and kidnapping as tactics to be used against dissidents in Latin America. While the Army minimized the importance of the manuals, saying they "contained passages that did not represent U.S. Government policy," others, such as Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.), believed the manuals confirmed that the school's congressional supporters have blood on their hands. The New York Times editorialized that an "institution so clearly out of tune with American values should be shut down without further delay."

7 U. S. Army intelligence training manuals used by School of the Americas from 1982-1991 which advocated executions, torture, blackmail and other forms of coercion, including the kidnapping of a target's family members. The Pentagon began a review of these in 1991. Robert Parry, "Lost History: 'Project X' and School of Assassins. The Consortium for Independent Journalism

Until we each open our eyes and refuse to close them to the truth this will go on.

We must develop a national conscience that takes responsiblity for its own actions and operates in truth - not terror and lies, otherwise we have destroyed ourselves, the divine self created in God's image.
