Top 10 POISONS most Americans eat or drink EVERY day

0

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:

If you accidentally sprayed roach killer or weed killer on your fruit, you would probably rush to wash it off, knowing it would make you sick if you ate it, now or later (in fact you would probably discard the produce entirely). If you put poisonous rat baits or pest-killing “food” pellets under your home, you would certainly make sure your dog or cat couldn’t get to them, knowing what would happen if they did. Heck, that’s just common sense and responsible living. Yet the “search for the cure” for cancer and Alzheimer’s disease marches on, while tens of millions of Americans eat food and drink beverages that are loaded with weed killer, bug killer, and industrial toxins that warp our cells, destroy our immune systems and incapacitate our cognitive abilities.

Over time, conventional American food literally deconstructs our genetics, creating and perpetuating health disasters for which the medical and scientific communities just can’t seem to prevent or “solve.” Maybe that’s because they’re all the ones making their fortunes off the problem.

Mark these words: No chemical medicine will ever prevent or cure the health problems that chemicals in food, drinks and medicine are causing. There are no pain killers, diabetes medicines, chemotherapy drugs or anti-anxiety medications that can fix your brain, heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas when the very CAUSE of the malfunctions is found in synthetics and carcinogens that are being consumed daily. When you eat GM corn and soy daily, take baby aspirin for your heart, eat antacids for your indigestion, make your coffee and tea with tap water, drink out of plastic bottles and eat fried foods made with processed oils, you’re asking for chronic health disaster to come your way – in fact, you’re inviting it into your life.

Take a close look at the 10 most popular poisons most Americans eat or drink EVERY single day

#1. Insecticides – Dioxin and 2,4-D: Corporations like Monsanto, Bayer, Dupont, Dow, Syngenta, Cargill and BASF do NOT care about human life or health. They are in business to make money, kill bugs and kill weeds – period. Most chemical insecticides utilized on American crops are toxic to humans and cause cancer and dementia.

#2. Glyphosate (and other toxic herbicides) – Roundup, the world’s most popular weed killer, contains 50 percent glyphosate, commonly used on fiber and wheat as a drying agent before processing begins in the silos. Many U.S. staple crops are embedded with glyphosate in their genetic makeup as biotechnology firms create food that contains poison, so that more poison can be sprayed on the plants without killing them. (Doesn’t matter to them if it kills humans, bees or farm animals.)

#3. Sodium Fluoride – Industrial chemical byproduct of industries in China — imported to the USA as an insecticide and dripped into tap water with the unsubstantiated claim that it’s good for building strong teeth and preventing cavities.

#4. Bleach – Most white foods are bleached white. Bleach causes pancreatic cancer and bladder cancer – two of the toughest cancers to survive. Consider never eating white bread, white rice (except basmati), white flour, white pasta or white sugar.

#5. Bisphenol A (BPA) – This poison is found in many plastic containers and canned foods.

#6. Benzene – a petrochemical and constituent of crude oil — colorless and highly flammable — commonly used in sodas.

#7. Hexane – a solvent and chemical cleaning agent used in the processing of canola oil and soy oil (it’s a cheap way to separate the oil from the protein) commonly found in infant formulas, veggie burgers, fruit and nut bars, protein drinks.

#8. PCBs – chlorine compound — often found in salmon and canned sardines.

#9. Aspartame – The most popular artificial sweetener on earth that causes weight gain. The patent confirms it is the excrement of genetically modified bacteria. That’s just nasty! Aspartame is known to cross the blood-brain barrier, so the brain’s cells are bombarded, and the result is neural cell damage and eventually cell death – which can lead to serious brain damage. Many of the symptoms of aspartame poisoning mimic the symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) and even dementia, like Alzheimer’s.

#10. Ammonia – The conventional U.S. meat industry thrives on one theory: If it doesn’t make you sick or kill you within 24 hours, then it’s “safe.” Most conventional “red” meat is ammonia-treated (and bleached) to kill the E. coli and then dyed back pink, like with hamburger and steak, to look attractive in the butcher’s window.

Change what you eat – change your life … Real doctors literally PRESCRIBE organic plant-based foods for disease treatment

Alternative medicine is blasted by the medical community because it finds and eliminates the root causes of most diseases and disorders which, for the most part, makes doctors less money. Without surgery, chemotherapy and expensive pharmaceuticals, most M.D.s and oncologists couldn’t live the lavish lifestyle they do right now. If you want your health to be organic and sustainable, doesn’t it make sense that everything you eat and take as “medicine” be just that?

The solution for ideal health free of disease and disorder is not as complex as you may think. Begin by eliminating the most common toxins from your daily intake. You will notice a difference immediately in how you feel, your energy level and your clearer thinking. You may even realize after a few weeks or months that the cure for most diseases and disorders exists in an organic, plant-based food regimen, and you will be absolutely and positively correct.

The Time Has Come: Venezuela May Be In Default In Under 48 Hours

0

from ZeroHedge:

This past weekend, Venezuela failed to make $237 million in bond coupon payment, blaming “technical glitches” when in reality it simply did not have the money (or wish to part with it). Adding the $349 million in unpaid bond interest accumulated over the past month as of last Friday, that brings Caracas’ unpaid bills to $586 million this month, just days before the nation must make a critical principal payment. And, as BofA sovereign debt analyst Jane Brauer writes, while the bank’s base case assumption is that Venezuela will make its debt service payments this year, “the probability of a short term default has increased substantially with coupon delays” and it could come as soon as this Friday, when an $842 million PDVSA principal plus interest payment is due, and which unlike typical bond payments does not have a 30 day grace period but instead is followed by a second $1.1 billion PDVSA coupon on Nov 2, also without a 30 day grace period.

As Brauer writes, Venezuela has been in as similar situation of payment uncertainty in the recent past, with bond prices plummeting right before a big payment. For example, just before a big principal payment was due in April 2017 Venezuela received a $1bn loan from Russia just one week before the due date. At that time Ven 27s dropped 16{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} in a month (from $52 to $45) and recovered completely within a month.  Ven 27 has fallen to $35, as Venezuela has demonstrated that it will be a challenge to make all payments on time.  The difference between now and April is that coupon payment delays then came after, not before the payment.

Meanwhile, Venezuela has managed to redefine the concept of payment “on time” which now means “by the end of the grace period”

As we keep track of missed payments, the 5 missed payments, so far totaling $350mn all have a 30 day grace period, as did the $237mn payments over the weekend.

The concern is that the principal payments coming up have:

  • No grace period in the bond indenture for an event of default
  • Three business day grace period before triggering CDS

The concerning principal due dates are coming up, the first of which is this coming Friday, which means in less than 48 hours Venezuela could be in default unless it can find $842 million:

  • Friday, Oct 27 PDVSA 2020 $842mn
  • Thursday Nov 2 PDVSA 17N $1,121mn

The collateral against the first bond is PDVSA’s Houston-based refining and retail subsidiary, and in just a few hours, the bondholders may be the (un)happy new ownders of said subsidiary.

This weekend, there’s either going to be a lot of bond holders and traders drinking champagne, or there’s going to be a lot of stressed fund managers,” said Russ Dallen, managing partner at Caracas Capital Markets

Gold & Silver Prices Hold Steady As Broader Markets Become Mis-Matched

by The Doc, SilverDoctors:

SD Midweek Update: The markets are mispriced right now with some assets moving in-step when they should not be doing so. Here’s an update…

We have a nice pop in the pre-market today, Wednesday Oct 25th:

There’s good volume on that price rise too.

Since opening on Sunday night, the silver price is down slightly:

As is the gold price:

Of course, we could see this coming from as early as Friday, so we have been in defensive posture anyway. But on the fundamental side of the equation, as the days go on, the fundamentals are going to become harder and harder to ignore.

The infamous “Trump Dossier” is back in the spotlight, and it has Hillary, the DNC, and the FBI’s fingerprints all over it. Then there’s Emperor XI and an oil for gold-backed yuan story that just won’t die.There’s continuing geo-political risk in Iraq, Syria, and North Korea, and Europe is still a basket case.

And that’s just politics.

As far as the stock market goes, well, that’s the Fed’s Frankenstein, and it’s not going to put it down if it doesn’t have to.

And so we have another record high just yesterday:

War, Flowers, Silver, Gold and The “Plan”

by Gary Christenson, Deviant Investor:

In the 1960s Peter, Paul and Mary popularized a song written by Pete Seeger – “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”

The short version is:

Where have all the flowers gone?

Young girls have picked them.

Where have all the young girls gone?

Gone to husbands.

Where have all the husbands gone?

Gone for soldiers.

Where have all the soldiers gone?

Gone to graveyards.

Where have all the graveyards gone?

Gone to flowers.

And repeat.

When will they ever learn?

Another version of this “cycle of life” might be:

 

Where has all the money gone?

Gone to taxes.

Where have all the taxes gone?

Gone to governments.

Where have all the governments gone?

Gone to bankers for loans and more money.

Where have all the bankers gone?

Gone to buy politicians.

Where have all the politicians gone?

Gone to buy voters.

Where have all the voters gone?

Gone to work for money.

Where has all the money gone?

Gone to taxes.

And repeat.

When will they ever learn?

Fifty years ago the U.S. bombed North Vietnam. That worked out well for the military contractors but not for people or global economies.

Twenty six years ago the U.S. fought Iraq and Saddam Hussein. That worked out well for the military contractors but not for people or global economies.

Ten years ago the U.S. fought in Iraq. That worked out well for the military contractors but not for people or global economies.

Today the U.S. is bombing several countries and threatening others. How will this benefit people and global economies?

When will they ever learn?

For perspective, here are some approximate prices that show the consequences of warfare and welfare, and borrow and spend politics.

Lawyer Behind Russian Dossier Tried to Undermine Bernie Sanders as well as Trump

0

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

Last evening, the Washington Post dropped a bombshell on the already discredited leadership of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) under its former Chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The Post reported that Marc Elias, a law partner at the politically connected law firm Perkins Coie, retained the company, Fusion GPS, that compiled the infamous Russian Dossier on Donald Trump. The Post said he did so on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC. (The current leadership of the DNC has stated that it had no knowledge of these actions.)

After the Washington Post story broke, New York Times reporters Ken Vogel and Maggie Haberman Tweeted that they had been lied to by those involved. Haberman Tweeted: “Folks involved in funding this lied about it, and with sanctimony, for a year.” Vogel Tweeted: “When I tried to report this story, Clinton campaign lawyer @marceelias pushed back vigorously, saying ‘You (or your sources) are wrong.’”

Elias is also the lawyer defending the class action lawsuit filed last year by Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters against Wasserman Schultz and the DNC. The lawsuit alleges fraud, negligent misrepresentation, deceptive conduct, unjust enrichment, breach of fiduciary duty, and negligence. The amended complaint indicates that more than 1,000 individuals have signed retainer agreements to serve as class representatives.

Emails leaked by Wikileaks in July of 2016 show Wasserman Schultz referring to Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, as “an ass,” “particularly scummy” and a “damn liar” as her staff conspired in emails to characterize Sanders as an atheist and his campaign a “mess.” (Sanders has stated that he is not an atheist.) As these anti-Sanders emails were flying about, the DNC set up a joint fundraising account with Hillary Clinton, effectively functioning as if Clinton had no primary challenger, despite the fact that Sanders’ rallies had thousands of supporters while Clinton’s were embarrassingly small in contrast.

Wasserman Schultz and key DNC officials were clearly violating their own Charter. Article Five, Section 4 of the DNC Charter mandates the following:

“The National Chairperson shall serve full time and shall receive such compensation as may be determined by agreement between the Chairperson and the Democratic National Committee. In the conduct and management of the affairs and procedures of the Democratic National Committee, particularly as they apply to the preparation and conduct of the Presidential nomination process, the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and even handedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and even handedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”

Multiple leaked emails also showed lawyers at Perkins Coie engaging in strategy that appeared to benefit Clinton over Sanders.

On July 25, 2016, under the headline “Here are the latest, most damaging things in the DNC’s leaked emails,” Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake called out an email from Marc Elias, writing:

A Clinton lawyer gives DNC strategy advice on Sanders — When the Sanders campaign alleged that the Clinton campaign was improperly using its joint fundraising committee with the DNC to benefit itself, Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias offered the DNC guidance on how to respond. ‘My suggestion is that the DNC put out a statement saying that the accusations the Sanders campaign are not true,’ Elias said May 3 in response to an email about the issue sent by communications director Luis Miranda to other DNC stuff that copied Elias and another lawyer at his firm, Perkins Coie.

“Elias continued: ‘The fact that CNN notes that you aren’t getting between the two campaigns is the problem. Here, Sanders is attacking the DNC and its current practice, its past practice with the POTUS and with Sec Kerry. Just as the RNC pushes back directly on Trump over ‘rigged system’, the DNC should push back DIRECTLY at Sanders and say that what he is saying is false and harmful [to] the Democratic party.’ ”

According to the Perkins Coie’s website in 2016, Marc Elias was “general counsel to Hillary for America,” the main fundraising vehicle for Hillary Clinton’s political campaign. Simultaneously, Elias served as one of a team of lawyers from Perkins Coie that represented the DNC. Exactly how that was impartial to the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders has yet to be explained.

Prior to the WikiLeaks emails being released, a hacker going by the moniker “Guccifer 2.0” released a DNC document dated May 26, 2015 – almost one month after Senator Sanders had declared his candidacy. The memo leaves little doubt that the DNC had pre-determined that Hillary Rodham Clinton (“HRC”) was to be the Democratic Presidential candidate, again in brazen violation of its charter.

The memo states that “Our goals in the coming months will be to frame the Republican field and the eventual nominee early and to provide a contrast between the GOP field and HRC.” It further suggests that the DNC use “specific hits to muddy the waters around ethics, transparency and campaign finance attacks on HRC.” Another recommended strategy will be to “utilize reporters” and create stories in the media “with no fingerprints.”

In Remembrance of the October Revolution

0

from Antonius Aquinas:

This October marks the centennial anniversary of the Bolshevik takeover of Russia and the establishment of Soviet-style Communism which tragically, for the Russian people, would last for some seventy interminable years.  Not only did the Soviet regime liquidate and imprison millions, but its idiotic system of central planning impoverished the country, turning it into an economic basket case, the effects of which continue to this day.

  The Communist monster, Vladimir Lenin
The Communist monster, Vladimir Lenin

Just as bad, the Bolsheviks murdered the last Czar, Nicholas II and his family, brutally ending nearly five hundred years of monarchial rule of Russia.  Within a year of the demise of the Russian aristocracy, two other of Europe’s venerable royal houses – Germany and Austria – met the same fate, all three casualties of their insane decision to participate in World War I.  The end of the German Court and especially that of Austria came at the vengeful insistence of then President Woodrow Wilson, who brought the US into the conflict on the pledge to make the “world safe for democracy.”

The triumph of the Bolsheviks and the downfall of the German and Austrian monarchies ushered in the Age of Democracy as other Western constitutional republics at the time and in each passing year began to resemble and adopt features of their supposed Communist foe.  As the 20th century wore on, each Western nation state became more “democratic,” increasing their welfare/warfare state apparatus, imposing more and more radical egalitarian social and economic measures, and adopting greater amounts of economic planning mostly through central banking.  Not only did economic activity become increasingly effected by monetary policy, but the central banks were instrumental in the eradication of the gold standard throughout the Western world.

Not only did Communism prove to be a disaster economically in Russia and everywhere else tried, but socialism had other debilitating effects.  The quality of the population declined along with the numbers of ethnic Russians, a trend that ominously continues to this day.  While ingenuity was stifled by the Soviet command economy, its culture, although never as advanced as Western Europe, became sterile and overshadowed by the heavy hand of the commissar.  The only memorable literature produced during the period were accounts of the gulag and the repression of dissent.  Music and the arts were similar cultural wastelands.

The West, too, as its nation states became more socialistic and egalitarian, witnessed retrogression in every aspect of society.  The catastrophic drop off in the size of the native populations can largely be attributed to crazed feminism, where women were encouraged and given privileges to pursue careers and become “working moms,” which led to the phenomenon of the “dysfunctional family” and declines in the number of child births.  Hans-Hermann Hoppe explains this effect in the American context:

In the U.S., . . . less than a century of full-blown

democracy has resulted in steadily increasing

moral degeneration, family and social disintegration,

and cultural decay in the form of continually rising

rates of divorce, illegitimacy, abortion, and crime.

 

As a result of an ever-expanding list of non-

discrimination – ‘affirmative action’ – laws and

nondiscriminatory, multicultural, egalitarian

immigration policies, every nook and cranny of

American society is affected by government

management and forced integration.*

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

GAG ORDER LIFTED—-
Secret informant can speak to Congress!

The secret informant came forward recently and claims he has devastating information on the Uranium One deal with Russia…

President Obama received information on Russia’s criminal plot to corner the market on uranium in his daily briefings.
Yet the Obama administration approved the sale of one-fifth of American uranium to the Russians anyway!

DC Attorney Victoria Toensing’s client is an American businessman who worked for years undercover as an FBI confidential witness, according to John Solomon and Alison Spann at The Hill.

The man was blocked by the Obama Justice Department from telling Congress about conversations and transactions he witnessed related to the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton and influence Obama administration decisions, his lawyer tells The Hill.

The Obama administration approved sale of uranium to the Russians knowing their criminal intentions!

Former US president George HW Bush apologizes after actress claims he ‘sexually assaulted’ her from his WHEELCHAIR

0

from Daily Mail:

  • Actress Heather Lind made allegations Tuesday claiming when she met former President George H.W. Bush, 93, he ‘sexually assaulted’ her from his wheelchair
  • She claimed the ‘assault’ happened during a photo-op with wife Barbara Bush standing by his side, and claims his wife saw the incident unfold
  • The now 34-year-old actress also claimed that afterwards Bush’s security detail told her she shouldn’t have stood next to the former president for the photo-op
  • Lind says this happened four years ago while she was promoting a movie
  • In a statement to DailyMail.com the former president has apologized for the incident saying it was an ‘attempt at humor’ and not meant to offend Lind

Former President George HW Bush has apologized after an actress claimed he ‘sexually assaulted’ her while he was in his wheelchair.

Heather Lind, 34, who starred in AMC’s series ‘Turn: Washington’s Spies’, made the allegations against the 93-year-old former president on Instagram in a lengthy post with accompanying photos. 

‘When I got the chance to meet George H. W. Bush four years ago to promote a historical television show I was working on, he sexually assaulted me while I was posing for a similar photo. He didn’t shake my hand. He touched me from behind from his wheelchair with his wife Barbara Bush by his side. He told me a dirty joke,’ Lind alleges.

The photo in question: Actress Heather Lind, now 34, claims she ‘sexually assaulted’ when this photo was taken. Pictured is former President George H.W. Bush with his wife and the cast and crew of AMC’s TURN: Washington’s Spies at a private screening of the series premiere in March 2014 in Houston, Texas. Back row, L-R: actors Seth Numrich, Samuel Roukin, Ian Kahn, Heather Lind, Kevin McNally and Burn Gorman. Bottom row: Barbara Bush and George H.W. Bush

Lind said in her since-deleted Instagram post it happened a second time: ‘And then, all the while being photographed, touched me again. Barbara rolled her eyes as if to say ”not again”. His security guard told me I shouldn’t have stood next to him for the photo.’

The photo in question was taken at a private screening of AMC’s TURN: Washington’s Spies with the former president and first lady in March 2014 in Houston, Texas.

Standing alongside Lind and the Bushes were her fellow TURN cast members Seth Numrich, Samuel Roukin, Ian Kahn, Kevin McNally and Burn Gorman. 

McNally has since spoken out to back up Hind, saying her account was ‘all true’. 

‘We were instructed to call him Mr. President. It seems to me a President’s power is in his or her capacity to enact positive change, actually help people, and serve as a symbol of our democracy,’ the lengthy post went on.

‘He relinquished that power when he used it against me and, judging from the comments of those around him, countless other women before me,’ Lind wrote.

Boston Marathon Bomber’s Aunt Says FBI Set Up Her Nephew and She Has PROOF

by Mattt Agorist, Activist Post:

On April 15, 2013, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, alongside his brother Dzhokhar, would become the infamous murderers in the Boston Marathon Bombings. According to the official reports, the duo blew up two homemade pressure-cooker bombs near the finish line at the marathon.

The attack killed and injured nearly 300 people. The subsequent manhunt led authorities to the Tsarnaev brothers, who went on the run after learning the authorities were on their trail. Tamerlan was shot 9 times by police and then finished off by his brother after he panicked and ran him over with his car. Dzhokhar was later shot and captured while hiding inside a boat.

Now, in a bombshell revelation, the Russian aunt of Dzhokhar has filed a motion in his death penalty appeal case that reveals new details on the meetings her nephew’s attorneys had in Russia with his parents and makes a bizarre allegation that the FBI said the bomber had a “heavy-laden black backpack,” not the white one he can be seen carrying in video taken before the deadly blasts, according to Newsweek.

In the court filings, Maret Tsarnaeva, an attorney, and sister of the Tsarnaev family asks to join the appeal defense team to plead with the courts to overturn the death penalty.

According to the report:

Tsarnaeva’s filing includes a still photograph of Dzhokhar taken from a 29-second clip recorded by a Whiskey’s Steak House surveillance camera on Boylston Street. Of it, she says that “the FBI and the indictment have together affirmed that the culprits who detonated these explosions were carrying large, unusually heavy black backpacks concealing pressure cooker bombs.” But her affidavit states, “Dzhokhar was carrying a small-sized white backpack,” which she calls exculpatory evidence.

“The very evidence used by the FBI to identify the ‘Boston bombers’ referenced in the indictment excludes Dzhokhar as plainly as white is distinguished from black,” Tsarnaeva’s filing states. “What can be more compelling than the difference between black and white?”

 

Both the family and legal team expressed their concern that Dzhokhar’s legal team—who was appointed by the state—was insufficient in defending Dzhokhar.

“As Dzhokhar’s family we expressed our concern that [the legal team] was untrustworthy, and might not defend Dzhokhar properly since they were paid by the government of the United States which was prosecuting him, as many believe, for political reasons,” Tsarnaeva wrote in the motion.

As Newsweek reports:

Minnesota lawyer John Remington Graham filed Tsarnaeva’s affidavit in Tsarnaev’s federal appeals case last week as part of a motion requesting that a judge allow her to work with his current defense attorneys, a request denied this year by O’Toole and rebuffed by his legal team.

“In my judgment, a trial court presiding over criminal prosecution should not receive or consider volunteered submissions by non-parties,” O’Toole wrote.

What makes this new revelation peculiar is the fact that early this year, as TFTP reported, while the FBI admitted, at the time of the bombings, that it had interviewed Tamerlan, it was only this year that it released the details of the interview.

On the 23rd day of April in 2011, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was interviewed by the FBI, at the request of the Russians who said they were concerned about the young man’s ties to Chechen Islamic Extremists.

Bombshell NSA Memo: Saudi Arabia Ordered Attack On Damascus International Airport With US Knowledge

from ZeroHedge:

The Intercept has just released a new top-secret NSA document unearthed from leaked intelligence files provided by Edward Snowden which reveals in stunning clarity that the armed opposition in Syria was under the direct command of foreign governments from the early years of the war which has now claimed half a million lives.

The US intelligence memo – marked “Top Secret” – is arguably the most damning piece of evidence to date which gives internal US government confirmation of the direct role that both the Saudi and US governments played in fueling an armed insurgency which launched massive and well-coordinated attacks on civilians, civilian infrastructure, as well as military targets in pursuit of regime change. The NSA report is sourced to the intelligence agency’s controversial PRISM program – which gives the NSA the ability to sweep up all communications and data exchanged through major US internet service providers like Google. The memo focuses on events that unfolded outside Damascus in March of 2013.

One of the videos that Saudi-backed FSA fighters uploaded to YouTube identified by The Intercept as showing rockets launched on civilian areas of Damascus on March 18, 2013. US intelligence knew of the secret operation three days in advance yet did not stop it.  

According to the document, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) was ordered to “light up Damascus” and “flatten” the Syrian capital’s international airport by Prince Salman bin Sultan – a prominent member of the Saudi royal family tasked with overseeing operations in Syria as a top Saudi intelligence officer. The document further reveals that the “Saudis sent 120 tons of explosives/weapons to opposition forces” – presumably in the lead up to the operation.

The report not only confirms that the assault happened, but that the Saudi government was “very pleased” with the outcome: “Attacks against airport, Presidential palace and other locations occurred on 18 March,” the memo reads. Also significant is that the memo confirms US intelligence foreknowledge of the attack on a major civilian airport: “Reports gave U.S. three days warning about 18 March 2013 attacks (2 year anniversary of revolution).”
