The request claimed there is evidence that U.S. military and intelligence personnel “committed acts of torture, cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity, rape and sexual violence against conflict-related detainees in Afghanistan and other locations, principally in the 2003-2004 period.”An article by Fox News proclaims “Trump Cracks Down on Criminal Court”, but shouldn’t it read instead, “Trump Attempts to Hide War Crimes in Afghanistan”? The write up goes on to state:
The U.S. revoked the visa of an International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Friday as part of the Trump administration’s effort to rebuke the tribunal’s investigation into alleged war crimes committed by U.S. forces in Afghanistan, according to a statement from the prosecutor’s office.
The ICC is an international tribunal based in The Hague, the Netherlands that prosecutes individuals for international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes of aggression only when other countries are unwillingly to do so. The U.S. has never been a member of the court and actively opposes its jurisdiction on an international stage.
It’s interesting as this comes at a time when a journalist, Julian Assange, who also exposed war crimes is about to be tried for just that if he is extradited. It appears Trump and his administration are definitely trying to hide what the military did in Afghanistan and Iraq.By squashing those e5ho expose it, they think the truth won’t get out but by arresting Assange they have opened a can of worms. Thry are exposing themselves for what they really are to the general public.The article further exposes Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for the liar and deep state operative he really is.
Last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. would revoke the visas of ICC personnel who attacked America’s rule of law by investigating allegations against U.S. forces in Afghanistan or allegations against Israel, The Guardian reported.
Furthermore, Pompeo admitted in an interview that the CIA “lies, cheats and steals” as seen in this article by telesurtv.net.
Covert operations, ousting democratically elected governments, inciting revolts and supporting transnational companies are run of the mill actions for the CIA.
United States Secretary of State and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director (2017 – 2018), Mike Pompeo, admitted to an audience from Texas A&M University on April 15, that the agency especially trains employees to “lie, cheat and steal.”
So why is he in high ranking position like Secretary of State? Because he has been trained to conceal, lie and cheat. While CIA director, Mike Pompeo called Wikileaks a “hostile nonstate intelligence agency.”According to an article seen on nbcnews.com,
“WikiLeaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. It has encouraged its followers to find jobs at CIA in order to obtain intelligence. It directed Chelsea Manning in her theft of specific secret information. And it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States, while seeking support from anti-democracy countries and organizations.”
What we can conclude about Mike Pompeo is:
- He was trained to lie, cheat, steal and conceal.
- He is willing to conceal war crimes on behalf the government.
- Trump put him in as Secretary of State.
According to the Fox news article mentioned before,
The request claimed there is evidence that U.S. military and intelligence personnel “committed acts of torture, cruel treatment, outrages upon personal dignity, rape and sexual violence against conflict-related detainees in Afghanistan and other locations, principally in the 2003-2004 period.”
Pompeo says he will protect military personnel. However, if a crime was committed, isn’t that aiding and abetting? When did the US become above the law when it comes to war crimes? Shouldn’t the US military be setting a standard and example, not hiding it’s own illegal activities?Chelsea Manning, who exposed war crimes, spent 7 years in prison. She is currently being held for refusing to testify against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in a secret grand jury. John Kiriakou who exposed the CIA ti5rture program also did time. It is obvious the US government punishes those who expose injustice and praises those who commit crimes.For example, the new CIA director, Gina Haspel, was part of the program Kiriakou exposed. She was linked to a “black site” and she still was promi5ted by Donald Trump.Trump’s war on free press and the First amendment has also become evident. Could that be because he is trying to conceal something? It makes you wonder what that would be. Obviously one of those items is war crimes by the Us military. Crimes they claim only dictators do in 3rd world countries so they can declare war and take over.Maybe the people of the U.S. should take a good look at our government and take our country back from the horrible elite who make money off the death of young women and men in unneccesary military operations in foreign lands. What do you think?
