I really do not like the AmeriKan MSM polluting this side of the blog; however, this is a NEED-TO-KNOW basis.
"US orders increase in covert operations" by Mark Mazzetti, New York Times | May 25, 2010
WASHINGTON — The top American commander in the Middle East has ordered a broad expansion of clandestine military activity in an effort to disrupt militant groups or counter threats in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and other countries in the region, according to defense officials and military documents.
The secret directive, signed in September by General David H. Petraeus, authorizes the sending of American special operations troops to both friendly and hostile nations in the Middle East, Central Asia, and the Horn of Africa to gather intelligence.... reconnaissance that could pave the way for possible military strikes in Iran....
Yes, AmeriKa, YOU ARE GETTING ANOTHER WORLD WAR whether you LIKE IT OR NOT!
So WHEN DOES the BOMBING BEGIN, Dave?!
This is the SAME THING we did to IRAQ, folks!!!!!

Well, actually, NO!!!!
SOMEONE IS OUT to GET THEM!!!
While the Bush administration had approved some clandestine military activities far from designated war zones, the new order is intended to make such efforts more systematic and long term, officials said.
You have to LOVE THAT CHANGE, don't you, America!
Yes, as HARD AS IT IS to BELIEVE Obomber is WORSE than GEORGE BUSH!!!!!!
Its goals are to build networks that could “penetrate, disrupt, defeat, or destroy’’ Al Qaeda and other militant groups, as well as to “prepare the environment’’ for future attacks by American or local military forces, the document said....
Meaning ISRAEL, of course!!!!!!!
So which "Al-CIA-Duh" would that be, huh?
The made-up "Al-CIA-Duh?"
Oh, AmeriKa's MSM KNOWS ALL ABOUT and yet STILL PUSHES the CHARADE, huh?
Yeah, well, if a CITY GOES UP, do not expect us to believe the cover story that it was with help from Iran, 'kay?
Turns out, the MILITARY KNOWS what WE ALL KNOW: that 9/11 was a MOSSAD OPERATION!
In broadening its secret activities, the US military has also sought in recent years to break its dependence on the Central Intelligence Agency and other spy agencies for information in countries without a significant American troop presence....
Right, like having another department with a team of assassins and false-flag artists is going to slow don the CIA or "Al-CIA-Duh."
But some Pentagon officials worry that the expanded role carries risks. The authorized activities could strain relationships with friendly governments like Saudi Arabia or Yemen, or incite the anger of hostile nations like Iran and Syria. Many in the military are also concerned that as American troops assume roles far from traditional combat, they would be at risk of being treated as spies if captured and denied the Geneva Convention protections afforded military detainees....
WHY WOULD ANY NATION PROTECT OUR PEOPLE after WE HAVE COMMITTED the MOST ATROCIOUS TORTURE and CONTINUE with INDEFINITE IMPRISONMENT?
The ARROGANCE ALONE is STUNNING, isn't it?

Yeah, they are ALL SPIES, AmeriKa!!!!
Hikers, tourists, businessmen, ALL NOC COVER!
If they MAKE the CIA PAPERS they are SPIES!!!!
The seven-page directive appears to authorize specific operations in Iran, most likely to gather intelligence about its nuclear program or identify dissident groups that might be useful for a future military offensive.
Not an IF, America, but a WHEN!
The GOVERNMENT is PREPARING for ANOTHER INVASION, folks!!!!
