We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

US Terrorism Hits Orlando - Not Just for Syrians Anymore

Click here to access article by Tony Cartalucci from Land Destroyer Report

With evidence mounting that the FBI facilitates the numerous terrorist incidents that have terrified most Americans, Cartalucci notices the same pattern in Syria where even mainstream press now acknowledges that ISIS is being supplied with weapons through Turkey, a NATO member.
It seems that both in Syria and at home in America, the special interests running Washington have found in the "Islamic State" a perfect tool with which to advance its various political agendas.
Meanwhile most mainstream coverage makes excuses about the inadequate performance of the FBI and others associated with the Orlando incident. One author directs criticism at the multinational private security corporation, G4S, who failed to screen out the shooter and employed him for a number of years, as simply due to "poor management". In an article entitled "How US Counterterrorism Funds Ended Up in the Orlando Terrorist’s Pocket", he was using the apparent ineptness of this security corporation as an illustration of his argument that most of the billions spent on counter-terrorism is mismanaged.  Either this author is terribly naive or is engaged in deceptive reporting.
