Congress OK's Arming Al Qaeda, Blowback Expected
July 26, 2013
What You Need to Know

The U.S. House of Representatives this week approved measures that would prevent the Obama administration from spending money on U.S. military operations in Syria without first consulting Congress and would forbid funding U.S. military or paramilitary operations in Egypt. But both amendments were approved on voice votes with only scant dissent.

With respect to Syria, lawmakers passed an amendment by Florida Republican Trey Radel, R-Fla., that would forbid any military action in Syria if it violates the War Powers Resolution – which requires the president to consult Congress before U.S. troops are sent into harm’s way. In terms of proxy war powers, Congressional intelligence committees recently gave the financial OK on an Obama administration plan to have the CIA provide arms and training to rebels aligned with the moderate Supreme Military Council.

And here is where things get particularly strange:

Threat Journal readers and listeners aside, most Americans are not aware that more than 75% of so called Syrian rebels are in fact not even Syrian. Most are fighters shipped in from central Asia, trained by contractors in Turkey and then sent next door into Syria to join the frey.

Even fewer Americans are aware that many of these fighters are, in fact, members of Al Qaeda. This is not speculation, but a fact openly acknowledged by the U.S. government. A significant number belong to or are aligned with the same terror group that was responsible for numerous terrorist attacks against the U.S. and our citizens and interests abroad, including the attack on the USS Cole, the attacks of 9/11, the Underwear Bomber Umar Farouk Abduhlmutallab, the infamous Shoe Bomber, Richard Reed, the Fort Hood shooting and many others. Check out this video of Syrian rebel teens singing ‘We Destroyed America With a Civilian Airplane’.

As recently as June Syrian rebels pledged their loyalty to al Qaeda, though they had also done so last year (and in 2011). Does anyone see potential for arms we are supplying the rebels (errr, we mean al Qaeda) to potentially be used against our own forces, or that of our allies, or U.S. citizens and interests? Is anyone dumbfounded by these developments? We sure are, as is Congress (though they approved the move).

According to Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota:

“I believe without a shadow of a doubt this is one of the most insane policies that borders on madness – the United States to give funding, training and arms most likely to al Qaeda in Syria doesn't make any sense,” said “This is absolute madness.”

Rep. Peter Welch of Vermont agreed:

“Distinguishing between the good rebels and the bad rebels is impossible. “The notion that we can have a micromanaged approach and pick the good guys, and arm them, and not have any reasonable expectation that the arms will get into bad hands I think is naive.”

There are also reports that Al Qaeda is set to announce an independent Islamic state in northern Syria. And if this is not bad enough, earlier this week it is reported that upwards of 500 terrorist convicts, including senior members of al Qaeda, broke out of Iraq's Abu Ghraib jail as comrades launched a military-style assault to free them.

Brace yourselves. Our world is about to get a whole lot more dangerous.

TEPCO Admits Radioactive Water
Flowing Into the Pacific, Plans Intentional Dump
July 26, 2013
What You Need to Know

After nearly two years of denial, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has publicly admitted that radioactive groundwater is flowing into the Pacific. This admission comes on the heels of last month's revelation that soil samples taken at the battered plant showed that levels of cesium-134 had shot up more than 110 times.

TEPCO officials state they are unable to explain the increased readings, aside from the obvious: Three ocean side nuclear reactors in various stages of meltdown, the need to have water constantly pumped over the various cores and circulated around fuel pools in order to prevent uncontrolled reactions from beginning, as well as millions of gallons of highly radioactive water being stored in leaking tanks and storage ponds onsite.

Oddly, in the same week that the company admits the plant is leaking radioactive water into the Pacific, the head of Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority, Shunichi Tanaka, also stated that TEPCO has no choice but to release radioactive water accumulating at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant into the sea.

“The Fukushima No. 1 plant is filling up with water,” Tanaka told a news conference on July 24. “Inevitably the contaminated water will have to be discharged into the sea..."

This admission again raises concerns over the ongoing contamination of the Pacific food chain. As an example, in May of 2012, a research group that included scientists from Woods Hole, Standford University and Stony Brook University in New York tested Blue Fin tuna caught off the West coast of the U.S.. 100% of the fish tested contained radioactive cesium contamination directly traceable to the Fukushima disaster. Remember, those were tests performed last year on tuna that spent the year prior migrating from the Western Pacific where they spawn.... to the Eastern Pacific and West Coast of N. America.

And this contamination threat is not just limited to Blue Fin tuna. The U.S. seafood company Vital Choice reported last year that Albacore tuna and Alaska halibut also contained the Fukushima cesium contaminant. Pacific halibut isn't a hard-core migratory fish like tuna but it does roam around the Gulf of Alaska.

AlertsUSA Threat Journal offers the following guidance:

Despite official statements of "No 'immediate' health risks", it is particularly important that readers avoid eating seafood products coming out of the Pacific Ocean. It may not kill or cause health problems overnight, but the human body bioaccumulates a variety of radioactive materials just as fish and other sea life. Additionally, if tests conducted over the last two years are showing increasing radioactive contamination during a time where there were firm denials of leaks at the plant, logic would dictate that there is a high likelihood that the problem will only be getting worse now that we know the leaks have been ongoing, will continue for years to come as well as the planned intentional dumping in the future.

Further, if there's one Fukushima contaminant in your fish, such as cesium-134 or 137, then there's a good chance that there could be any of the more than two hundred other radioisotopes from Fukushima in that and other fish species as well.



Travel Security Update

The U.S. Dept. of State is the authoritative federal source for information on the security situation at travel destinations worldwide. With tensions rapidly increasing in most regions, readers planning on international travel, even to such common destinations as Canada, Mexico or the Caribbean Islands are strongly encouraged to do a little research on the security situation prior to departure.
