Question Tank: How Does Cheney Know Another 911 Coming?

Cui bono?


WASHINGTON D.C. – USA – The Question Tank, an independent think tank has revealed the answers to many questions about 911 and other things.


Forget about think tanks, how about a question tank?

The Question Tank, an independently funded question think tank sort of thing from Washington D.C. has a question that may lead to an answer somewhere. All you have to do is put two and two together, et voila.

Former Bush Vice President, Dick Cheney on a recent radio interview claimed thatanother 911 attack on America will happen soon. Well, in no uncertain terms, how the hell is he so sure?

Dr. Edelweiss Krantz, a chief researcher explains: “Dick Cheney knows another 911 will happen soon, because he has high access. That’s all we’re going to say about that. If one reads the Project For the New American Century published in 2000, Dick Cheney and his cohorts laid out their plans for U.S. global hegemony. The 90 page document is basically a lamentation of the lacklustre nature of the U.S. mili…

Henry Kissinger: "If You Can’t Hear the Drums of War You Must Be Deaf"

Henry Kissinger, the most famous living practitioner of international statecraft


NEW YORK – USA – In a remarkable admission by former Nixon era Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, reveals what is happening at the moment in the world and particularly the Middle East.


Speaking from his luxurious Manhattan apartment, the elder statesman, who will be 89 in May, is all too forward with his analysis of the current situation in the world forum of Geo-politics and economics.

“The United States is baiting China and Russia, and the final nail in the coffin will be Iran, which is, of course, the main target of Israel. We have allowed China to increase their military strength and Russia to recover from Sovietization, to give them a false sense of bravado, this will create an all together faster demise for them. We’re like the sharp shooter daring the noob to pick up the gun, and when they try, it’s bang bang. The coming war will be so severe that only one superpower can win, and that’s us folks. Th…

A new report is out today from the Stimson Center’s Task Force on U.S. Drone Policy, co-chaired by General John Abizaid, U.S. Army (ret.) and Rosa Brooks, of which I was also a member. Our study took place over the course of a year, examining three key issue sets in the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) debate: 1) defense utility, national security, and economics; 2) ethics and law; and 3) export controls and regulatory challenges. Our examination identified UAVmisconceptions, areas of concern, and—significantly—a few concrete ways to make things better.

UAVs do not “cause” disproportionately high civilian casualties. Contrary to popular belief, armed UAVs are precision platforms: their weapons go where they’re directed. Collateral damage, therefore, is due to t…

Official: Intelligence community warned about 'growing' ISIS threat in Iraq

The U.S. intelligence community warned about the "growing threat" from Sunni militants in Iraq since the beginning of the year, a senior intelligence official said Tuesday -- a claim that challenges assertions by top administration officials that they were caught off guard by the capture of key Iraqi cities.

Earlier Tuesday, in an interview with Fox News, Secretary of State John Kerry said "nobody expected" Iraqi security forces to be decisively driven out by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, as they were earlier this month in Mosul.

But in a separate briefing with reporters Tuesday afternoon, the senior intelligence official said the intelligence community had warned about the ISIS threat.

“During the past year, the intelligence community has provided strategic warning of Iraq’s deteriorating security situation," the official said. "We routinely highlighted (ISIS') growing threat in Iraq, the increasing difficulties Iraq’s security forced fa…
