Al Jazeera English
US readers (&perhaps others) having difficulty accessing #AlJazeera site - reason unclear.

If this was due to servers being down reasons wouldn't be unclear.

depends on who tweeted it. maybe "unclear" means "we're working on it and it'll take more than the tweet character limit to explain, so hang tight".

if it was something sinister, it'll be reported on the stream - and likely on every ever news outlet at this point.

Either way it seems the majority of the reports are from yesterday very little live footage be shown right now as I am watching?

Yes the server seems to be down, but they are still getting feed since livestation is working.

This seems to be international since I am in Canada, and there has been reports from all over.

Could be an attack on their servers.

It looks like we are seeing the corperate censorship machine at work again....

Follow the dots.

The Rockefeller's own Standard Oil.
In 1932 Socal, [Standard Oil of California], discovered oil in Bahrain.
(SFC, 10/20/04, p.C6)

In 1933 Saudi Arabia gave Socal exclusive rights to explore for oil. (SFC, 10/20/04, p.C6)

You then have the merger of the two big US banking families the Rockefellers (Chase bank) and JP Morgan. . The ugliest hidden activity for the JP Morgan monster is to manage the Bank of Baghdad, where they manipulate the crude oil price...

And finally guess who controls the US news Media?

U.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917: J.P. Morgan interests bought 25 of America's leading newspapers, and inserted their own editors, in order to control the media.

JP Morgan: Our next big media player? (April 13, 2010) JP Morgan controls 54 U.S. daily newspapers,and owns 31 television stations.

Notice how nothing was done about FOREIGN Muslims recruiting felons straight out of US jails and training them with automatic weapons. It is illegal for a felon to OWN a weapon yet the US government ALLOWS this!

...Islamberg is a branch of Muslims of the Americas Inc., a tax-exempt organization formed in 1980 by Pakistani cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, who refers to himself as "the sixth Sultan Ul Faqr," Gilani, has been directly linked by court documents to Jamaat ul-Fuqra or "community of the impoverished," an organization that seeks to "purify" Islam through violence.... Jamaat ul-Fuqra has operational headquarters in New York and openly recruits through various social service organizations in the U.S., including the prison system...

Over the years, numerous members of Jamaat ul-Fuqra have been convicted in US courts of such crimes as conspiracy to commit murder, firebombing, gun smuggling, and workers' compensation fraud. Others remain leading suspects in criminal cases throughout the country, including ten unsolved assassinations and seventeen fire-bombings between 1979 and 1990.

The criminal charges against the group and the criminal convictions are not things of the past. In 2001, a resident of a California compound was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting of a sheriff's deputy; another was charged with gun-smuggling' and twenty-four members of the Red House community were convicted of firearms violations.

By 2004 federal investigators uncovered evidence that linked both the DC "sniper killer" John Allen Muhammed and "Shoe Bomber" Richard Reid to the group and reports surfaced that Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was captured and beheaded in the process of attempting to obtain an interview with Sheikh Gilani in Pakistan.

Even though Jamaat ul-Fuqra has been involved in terror attacks and sundry criminal activities, recruited thousands of members from federal and state penal systems, and appears to be operating paramilitary facilities for militant Muslims, it remains to be placed on the official US Terror Watch List...

Yet you and I have to put up with Grope-N-Fly and the Patriot act.

Nope.. you dont get to have the argument both ways. Either Iraq had WMD's, or they did not. At the end of the first gulf war numerous UN resolutions were passed that required IRaq to give up their WMD program. Iraq continued that program in violation of those resolutions in addition to ignoring terms for the conclsuion of hostilities.

When the US invaded Iraq in 2003, they had an active WMD prgram, which was in violation of the resolutions. In order for Iraq to have a WMD program, it means they continued that program after the first gulf war, which means under the UN resolutions, the US had a right to invaded and end that program.

If people want to take exception to the actions of the US thats fine. You need to petition your government then to send peace keepers instead of everyone relying on the US to do it.

US did find Iraq WMD

I love the argument though... complain the intelligence was wrong, be proven wrong, and then the argument changes to well, they had those before.

No kidding... its the reason we invaded. Sorry if the facts do not support your position on Iraq.

lol i have been through this with you before. Both wars were illegal under international law, A for the wmd are you trying to say the usa sold the chemical wepons to them and then invaded then illegally for the very same wepons.
Is that the premise you really have and you really think the war was vallid on those beliefs...thats real funky in my books.
In the UK the government prepared a dossier regarding the wmd that iraq was making. we never found them, they never existed. That was the premise in which the uk took themselves into the war. it was lies...
