That’s a bunch of Malarky!

October 13, 2012

Fact checking the liars with “fact checkers” masks….

Like salon.com for example.  [satire:] Oh yeah, count on objective “fact” reporting from salon.com

*10:15 — Taxpayer funding for abortion:* Ryan says Democrats support taxpayer funding for abortion, pointing to Obamacare. That’s completely false . The bill never contained taxpayer funding for abortion, but it was nonetheless held up for months to appease pro-life Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak and the bloc that he lead.

It turns out that funds from that bill are right now funding abortions in some states, and dual-use abortifacients/contraceptives will be paid for by conscientious objectors by force and fine. No matter what your religious or secular conviction is,  you will not be able to buy an insurance plan that excludes “contraception”, and that includes the abortifacients with the misleading “contraception” label. The “morning-after” pill is an abortifacient. Since salon.com pretends they do not know this, how can one trust them?

Stephanapolous had to know something, the contraception question at his moderated debate came out of nowhere, another puff of smoke from the government-media complex, and what Disraeli said about how there are no accidents in politics.

Stupak was right before he caved, and wrong when he caved. What did Obama really say in that private meeting? Obama and Pelosi were already saying (lying) it wouldn’t cover abortions, they still plan to cover them, same as they plan to bring everything under the command-insurance G-control model (as they also said).

After all, as a guy who opposed effective penalties for letting a baby die after it is born, is Obama going to tell the truth?

And babies are still dying by the thousands daily, under the unconstitutional legal kill order known as Roe v Wade.

Biden played the dove on Syria last night, but BOTH of them kept war open as an option. Yes they did, two mealy-mouths. They all look like warmongers to me, and Obama has a track record that added not one, not two, but three new fronts to his list of wars to add to Bush’s two.

*10:10 — Troops in Libya:* Ryan said “nobody is considering sending troops to Syria.” In August, Gov. Romney told CBS News that he would send U.S. troops to Syria if necessary to prevent the spread of chemical weapons. In his interview with CBS, Romney said, “I think we have to also be ready to take whatever action is necessary to ensure that we do not have any kind of weapon of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorists and whether that requires troops, or whether that requires other actions by our friends and allies.”

And both insinuate they might go to war against Iran. (If they decide it’s “necessary”). They all agree that Iran is a dire threat to the national security of the United States. Even worse, they say, it is a threat to Israel. I kid you not. In the tradition of Dave Berry, I am not making this up.

*10:00 — Small Navy? *Paul Ryan says Obama would reduce the Navy to its smallest size since World War I. Politifact gave that claim a Pants on Fire and called it ridiculous.

—
Moot because they’re both warmongers covering up by expected talking points. Ryan wants to increase the military and their presence everywhere, and Obama-Biden showed their true warrior colors with the war against the Libyans and threatening Syria and Iran.

*9:55 — Sequester two-step:* Ryan attacks Biden for automatic defense cuts that will go through if Congress does not act. Those cuts come from the “sequester,” the automatic trigger mechanism created by the congressional deal to raise the debt ceiling. You know who voted for that plan? Paul Ryan <http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/09/09/816861/ryan-i-didnt-vote-for-the-defense-cuts-i-voted-for/>.

–
So advocated Biden, to push the debt ceiling can down the road some more, and this exposes what liars the “fact checkers” are. Everybody knows that was a “compromise” anyway and everybody wanted their own toys but they had to do “something” instead of doing the only sane thing (the Ron Paul plan) so it became automatic. What do you expect from a “thinkprogress” that wants us to throw us back to feudalism and calls it “progress”?

They had to give the Tea Party guys in the House some cover. After all, the American people put them there to stop the mad spending addiction.

Welfare-warfare is a false choice, a pox on both their houses. Neither of them have any right to complain about the others’ “lies”, they all drummed the only honest candidate out of this false choice. Which one? Seabiscuit or Secretariat? Cardinals or Giants? Difference is, these guys are asses pretending to be horses.

*9:45 — Social Security and Medicare are /not/ going broke:* “Social Security and Medicare are going bankrupt. These are indisputable facts,” Ryan says. Actually both are disputable and neither are facts. People have been saying Social Security is going to go bankrupt for decades, it hasn’t yet, and it’s not going to. It’s currently projected to be fine for at least 40 years

—-


Those freebies are designed to go broke, by which I mean the design is built to break. Even the marketing is Ponzi scheme, besides which, unfunded liabilities are up to over $70 trillion by most estimates of all such programs and the national debt keeps climbing and they’ll get squeezed out by the fall of the dollar if nothing else. It’s built on paper and ink and now electronic blips.

Anyway, not one Congress has any true moral authority to lay debt on people that had nothing to do with it. Why should a future Congress be obligated to pay for today’s Congress. Today’s Congress is paying for the sins of their colleagues in the past, but they’re paying for it by committing the same theft against future Congressmen. Except that we are paying now, because every time government spends money, they have to rob us to do it.

When they pay for it with taxes, they are directly robbing the people they confiscate from. When they pay for it with borrowing, they are robbing the poor and middle class with the inflation they’re causing, robbing value from our money. After they ditched the gold base, it’s easier to print the money.

Except the evil faction of the banksters took over the printing. Treasury doesn’t print it, they borrow it from the bankers at the Fed. The bankers just print the IOU’s (we owe them) that they lend to us and it costs them virtually nothing.

*9:40 — Ryan’s healthcare plan is bipartisan? *Ryan claimed that his Medicare proposal was co-sponsored by a Democrat. He was referring to Sen. Rod Wyden of Oregon, who did create a plan to change Medicare, but once Republicans adapted it, he distanced himself from the bill this summer <http://thehill.com/blogs/healthwatch/politics-elections/243387-wyden-downplays-medicare-plan-he-crafted-with-ryan>. In response to Romney’s continued claims on the campaign trail that the bill was bipartisan, Wyden told the Oregonian <http://www.oregonlive.com/mapes/index.ssf/2012/08/sen_wyden_says_romney_is.html> in August, “Bipartisanship requires that you not make up the facts. I did not ‘co-lead a piece of legislation.’”

So it WAS bipartisan, a plan created by a Democrat, who only backed off when the Republicans took ahold of it? So who was the bipartisan and who was not?

*9:35 — What about in your own district?* Ryan attacked Biden because the unemployment rate has gone up in his hometown of Scranton, Pa., under Obama and Biden. But the unemployment rate has gone up in Paul Ryan’s home district as well during his tenure in Congress. It was 3.8 percent when Ryan first took office in 1999 and was <http://www.alternet.org/election-2012/take-look-what-paul-ryan-did-his-own-congressional-district-and-be-very-scared-your> at 9.2 percent this August.

-
But Biden is VP and this is Obama’s economy.

*9: 30 — Paul Ryan requested stimulus money:…It’s also worth noting that Ryan supported the 2002 stimulus package

They all did, a pox on all their houses. Americans roared back with all the Tea Party demonstrations. Problem is this horse race and all the betting on it is distracting them.

*9:25 — Cars:* “Mitt Romney is a car guy,” Ryan says earnestly. Mitt Romney also wrote an Op-Ed for the New York Times titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt <http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/19/opinion/19romney.html>.”

—


Meaning, they should have let them go through the normal bankruptcy process instead of making it their political football and using it to brag about government robbing Peter to save Paul.

They SHOULD have left Detroit alone. Now it’s worse. Now we even have the “leftist” regime bragging about all the corporate welfare they give out to save the big corporations.

What a con job! It’s as good as the revisionist history that has the party of slavery and Jim Crow pretending to love all the poor colored folk!

*9:10 — Marines: *Paul Ryan, noting that there’s a Marine detachment at the U.S. Embassy in Paris asks, “Shouldn’t we have a Marine detachment?” in Libya. The infatuation with the Marines belies a deep misunderstanding of the role the service members play in foreign embassies. The Corps actually protects information <http://www.salon.com/2012/10/10/romney_to_shut_up_about_benghazi_victim/>, not personnel. And with only a little over 1,000 Marines serving as guards around the world, there are very few in any diplomatic post.

—
The infuation with the Marines and having them everywhere is the usual imperialist mentality. It’s as bad as the newfound supposed Obama infatuation with special forces to do all these jobs. The special forces did so good in Libya. And it’s baloney they “only protect information”, as if they will let a guy visiting a consulate start shooting at consulate personnel, no matter what a written code says.

*9:05 — Diplomatic security: *The debate opened up with a discussion of the attacks on U.S. diplomatic posts in Libya, with Paul Ryan attacking Biden for the Obama administration supposedly not doing enough to protect diplomats.

—
So this non-factual “fact checker” wants to check the facts so they can throw them in the trash and look for something else to talk about. They also didn’t “check the fact” that there was obviously information left inadequately protected (in their own terms), since CNN reporters just wandering around found writings by diplomats themselves…

This is about LIBYA and Bengazi-gate. Obama’s State Department is now caught red-handed intentionally exposing the consulate in Benghazi to attack. The Brits had pulled out.

After having considered Libya important enough to go to war against it, how can they justify either (1) REDUCING security after requests for MORE security, or (2) if they had inadequate funding, why did they not pull out. LIKE THE BRITS DID after an attack against their ambassador?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/sep/12/chris-stevens-us-ambassador-libya-killed

The ambassador’s killing follows an attack in June on the UK ambassador to Libya, Dominic Asquith. Two British bodyguards were injured after a rocket was fired at Asquith’s convoy in Benghazi, hitting his security escort. There have been similar attacks in Benghazi on the Red Cross and the UN. It is not clear why the US ambassador had returned to Benghazi at a time of security concerns.

On Wednesday the British embassy in Tripoli said that after the attack in June UK diplomats were pulled out of Benghazi. “Nobody is based there permanently. We have a villa there and an office, with staff traveling there from time to time,” it said. No British staff were injured during Tuesday’s attack on the US mission, it added.

And another thing.

I just saw that the ambassador was taken out by rockets in an ambush. So of course how could it not be a spontaneous mob reaction to a movie not even the Arabs heard about until the Obama gang blamed it for this?

The same link as above, from September 12, 2012:

The US ambassador in Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack after the diplomat’s car was targeted in the eastern city of Benghazi, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

One Zionist Israeli settler speaks out about America and Iran

May 23, 2012

Far from me to say Dick understands anything about Iran or about foreign policy, since he also doesn’t understand that sanctions easily fall under the category of “acts of war” themselves, and more often than not cause a blowback effect like that of war:

But at the settlerofsamaria.org website you can read what a Zionist settler says about Iran and sanctions and aid to Israel:
http://settlersofsamaria.org/vote-ron-paul-free-israel/

Vote Ron Paul and let my people go once again! Stop meddling here and stop trying to buy influence by giving me money. Stop trying to be the all powerful Peace Maker and let us work out the problems here on our own! If we think Iran is a threat, we can handle it and we’ll take the consequences. It’s not America’s problem and you can’t afford another war.

Now repeat after me (him): “If we think Iran is a threat, we can handle it and we’ll take the consequences. It’s not America’s problem and you can’t afford another war.”

Rafi Farber lives in “Samaria” (that’s occupied Syrian land by the way) and he also manages the “World of Judaica” website:
http://www.worldofjudaica.com/

What I question is they hypocrisy of many who claim they are for peace in the Middle East and question supposedly “pro-Israel” positions. George W Bush dictated at Israel just as much as Obama does.

Were they bothered by Clinton’s bomb-throwing at pharmaceutical factories in the Sudan and some hillside in Afghanistan, or his bombing of civilians in Serbia and later the civilian caravans of “Kosovars”? No, they cheered wildly when Obama sent bombs raining on Libya, and when it didn’t work fast enough because so many Libyans loved him so much and enthusiastically went to the front to defend him, they started demanding more bombs and even ground troops.

And they themselves demanded that we throw away our own natural rights by shredding the constitutional ban on wars without declarations of war from Congress.

But maybe we’re just jaded, and our brain cells faded.

Christian church in Iran is ‘explosive’

March 25, 2012

See where Christian church growth is ‘explosive’:
http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/see-where-christian-church-growth-called-explosive/

One of the world’s premiere organizations for spreading the message of the Bible in restricted nations says the underground Christian church in Iran is experiencing “explosive” growth.

“Forty years ago an estimated 200 Muslim Background Believers were living in Iran,” says a new report from Open Doors USA. “Today the estimation is 370,000 MBBs.”

Persecution will cause growth in the numbers of Iranian Christians.

Iranians have been watching the case of Christian pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. It looks like the rulers of Iran saw themselves backed into a corner and they felt they had to execute him because they thought leaving him alive would weaken their control.

Paul said ” For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.” (2 Corinthians 13:8)

Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

 

War, Social Values, and Ron Paul

Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

War, Social Values, and Ron Paul by Jon Basil Utley:
http://lewrockwell.com/orig13/utley1.1.1.html

Hey the article is a good and fair criticism directed at the Pharisee faction of evangelicals, but the last paragraph can leave an unfair and misleading impression that puts Ron Paul’s evangelical and even “fundamentalist” supporters into a very unfair box with their persecutors.

False “evangelicals” like Ashcroft and Jerry Fallwell and Santorum and his gullible “clergy” blessers are the only ones publicized, it’s true, but it’s not the whole story. A “remnant” is growing and exposing the wolves in sheep’s clothing, but it doesn’t help to let fellow liberty-minded citizens who are not evangelical think that all such Bible believers are so gullible.

Here is the offending paragraph, which is carefully worded so as to be technically directed at only the ones who are the offenders:

These evangelicals don’t want peace because it would mean postponing Armageddon. That’s why their leaders oppose Ron Paul.

That statement paints too wide a brush and  shows that the author does not understand evangelicals.

The real motive of evangelicals who follow after corrupt hypocrites like Santorum is Israel. They have been deceived by a line of their leaders into thinking that God wants them to support Israel, and they don’t even pay attention to the Orthodox Jews that condemn Israel as illegitimate.

I know one of “these evangelicals” who said what he doesn’t like about Ron Paul is that he doesn’t care if Iran gets the bomb! I shared a bit of education with him, but to say he “doesn’t want peace because it would mean postponing Armageddon” is an unmerited slur.

It’s on the same level as claiming libertarians want sick people to die without insurance. Like that leftist plant that yelled out at that debate (no Ron Paul supporter he).

I know the NWO is building toward the Beast tyranny and will wage a campaign to wipe out all Christians.

The NWO control freaks will do everything they can to wipe out all opposition, and they are very much aware that the true genuine and most tenacious defenders of individual liberty throughout these two thousand years have been the Bible believing Christians who gave their lives at the stake and at the guillotine and the Inquisition to give impulse to the Reformation, end slavery, establish independent science, and have more recently continued to testify against tyrants by putting themselves on the bad end of Stalin’s bullets and Mao’s massacres.

Once a Biblical Christian understands the message of freedom, it clicks in place because Jesus Christ was one of the first champions of individual freedom and what I call Golden Rule government.

And libertarians understand this: The government of the Antichrist will be one of plastic peace, but it will be the brutal “peace” that American visitors reported in Russia about Stalin, free of crime supposedly.

But he will be searching out not only Christians but all people who love freedom enough to understand that receiving that chip in their right hand or in their forehead is the last and complete surrender of one’s natural freedom.

Iran Moves Further To End Petrodollar, Announces Will Accept Payment In Gold Instead Of Dollars

Jigsaw puzzle of falling dollar sign with seam...

The failing dollar: Game Over (Photo credit: Horia Varlan)

Forty years we’ve been warning America about this, you cannot think the respect will last forever that your currency got in times past for being attached to something of true independent value like gold or silver.

Just-say-so currency leads to corruption, and “printing money”, which today means adding account sheet entries, a flick of the keypad on a computer. Cheap to make but used to rob the poor and give to the rich by means of dollar devaluation, and pretending to blame the rich for the devaluation (raising prices).

Iran Moves Further To End Petrodollar, Announces Will Accept Payment In Gold Instead Of Dollars:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/iran-moves-further-end-petrodollar-announces-will-accept-payment-gold-instead-dollars

Besides, America is paying for its sins. Its recent series of presidents have mortgaged out the “full faith and credit of the United States of America” to a gang of money changers who have no respect for the fruits of the labor of the individual, and who have run a giant scam on the poor, paying for welfare and free health care by robbing value right out of their pockets.

We used to hear some politicians warn us that financing programs with debt was immoral because it cheated future generations, placing a debt burden on them.

That would be true even if we had a genuine legal regime of genuine currency today, but the problem is that most of the people have not understood that trusting in a fiat currency owned by a monopoly of Wall Street bankers and international bankers, was inadvertently pledging their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the monopolists.

The Green Paper Pig is full of hot air, inflation stretching it ever more, putting pressure on its fragile paper-thin skin, and one day soon it will explode. The money changers may even be counting on it to move the world over to a one-world currency regime, which is going to happen anyway with the lead-up to the famous mark of the beast as told in Revelations 13. “In”, not on! the right hand or the forehead. Beware of embedded subcutaneous chips that they will promise make buying and selling “easier”. Easier for them, slavery for us.

Jesus Christ drove out the money changers of his day with a very nasty whip that he took time to prepare for maximum effect, and eventually, following God’s law of “You reap what you sow”, their day will also come, after some agonizing travail for the entire world.

But God is in control, hitch your wagon and your soul to his son, and ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.

Syria: Rebels may be more dangerous for Christians and Jews than Assad

February 19, 2012

I saw this piece calling for action by the United States to intervene in Syria on behalf of the rebels there fighting Assad, and find below my reply:

http://sharinhislove.wordpress.com/2012/02/18/time-is-running-out-according-to-bible-prophecy/

He that passeth by, [and] meddleth with strife [belonging] not to him, [is like] one that taketh a dog by the ears. (Proverbs 26:17)

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them (Matthew 7:20)

The only thing that American interventionism in the Middle East conflicts has done, and supporting these “uprisings”, is to make the world safer for much worse atrocities against Christians and Jews in these countries, where the Muslim Brotherhood is beginning to find common cause with al-Qaeda operatives and organizers.

Already the new Egyptian rulers have repudiated the peace treaty with Israel. Iraq is more dangerous for Christians and Jews than it ever was under Saddam Hussein.

Speaking of Syrian massacres, black Christians and Muslims in Libya have been slaughtered literally by the tens of thousands by these “freedom fighters” who are supported by the U.S. and the West! Including one town of 10,000 blacks, genocided, and where this new invading army totally obliterated all the physical structures of the town to prevent it from being ever rebuilt and to erase its memory. In one of their leaders’ words: “The town of Tawerga is no more”.

A lot of the black martyrs have crosses cut into their dead bodies, like in the recent genocide in Sudan.

He that answereth a matter before he heareth [it], it [is] folly and shame unto him. – Proverbs 18:3

Our black president has supported a genocide against blacks in Libya.

And now, the rebels in Syria are engaging in full-scale pitched battles with the Assad government, and they are getting lots of arms pouring in from somewhere, in yet another under-reported development, strangely missing from the Western press. It’s more like a civil war. This time, NATO has learned a PR lesson and they are supporting the rebellion quietly, a rebellion full of al-Qaeda operatives and Israel-haters and Christian-haters.

To fight these wars, America, and the West, must rely on Money Changers at the Federal Reserve, because they know that no matter how much military budget there is, the Fed will back it with “quantitative easing” which means “printing e-money”, which is a false balance. Because when they do they are robbing value from the money held by the poor and middle class.

George Will on Why Ron Paul is Right About Foreign Policy and Mitt Romney is Wrong

February 12, 2012

George Will on Why Ron Paul is Right About Foreign Policy and Mitt Romney is Wrong | Ron Paul 2012 Presidential Campaign Committee:
http://www.ronpaul2012.com/2012/02/12/george-will-on-why-ron-paul-is-right-about-foreign-policy-and-mitt-romney-is-wrong/

Writes George Will:

Few things so embitter a nation as squandered valor, hence Americans, with much valor spent there, want Iraq to master its fissures. But with America in the second decade of its longest war, the probable Republican nominee is promising to extend it indefinitely.

Mitt Romney opposes negotiations with the Taliban while they “are killing our soldiers.” Which means: No negotiations until the war ends, when there will be nothing about which to negotiate…

The U.S. defense budget is about 43% of the world’s total military spending — more than the combined defense spending of the next 17 nations, many of which are U.S. allies. Are Republicans really going to warn voters that America will be imperiled if the defense budget is cut 8% from projections over the next decade? In 2017, defense spending would still be more than that of the next 10 countries.

Do Republicans think it is premature to withdraw up to 7,000 troops from Europe two decades after the Soviet Union’s death? About 73,000 will remain, most of them in prosperous, pacific, largely unarmed and utterly unthreatened Germany. Why do so many remain?

Since 2001, the United States has waged war in three nations, and some Republicans appear ready to bring the total to five, adding Iran and Syria. (The Weekly Standard, of neoconservative bent, regrets that Obama “is reluctant to intervene to oust Iran’s closest ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.”) GOP critics say Obama’s proposed defense cuts will limit America’s ability to engage in troop-intensive nation-building. Most Americans probably say: Good…

Romney says: “It is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon…” (Leon) Panetta says Iran acquiring nuclear weapons is “unacceptable” and “a red line for us” and if “we get intelligence that they are proceeding with developing a nuclear weapon, then we will take whatever steps necessary to stop it.”

What, then, is the difference between Romney and Obama regarding Iran?

Osama bin Laden and many other “high-value targets” are dead, the drone war is being waged more vigorously than ever, and Guantanamo is still open, so Republicans can hardly say Obama has implemented dramatic and dangerous discontinuities regarding counterterrorism. Obama says that even with his proposed cuts, the defense budget would increase at about the rate of inflation through the next decade.

Republicans who think America is being endangered by “appeasement” and military parsimony have worked that pedal on their organ quite enough.

Ron Paul and the dangers of rogue government

December 29, 2011

It’s disingenuous to casually dismiss Ron Paul‘s position on Iran as being one of “casually brush aside the danger of nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of international terrorism“.

Because in doing so you “casually brush aside” the obvious epic failures the United States has reaped from the previous recent attempts to meddle in the affairs of nations like Iraq and Afghanistan. Do you think active military –that’s right, active military– are “casually brushing aside” the dangers of “rogue nations” like Iran, when they contribute more to Ron Paul’s campaign than to any other including Obama‘s? And though it is common knowledge that active military has favored Republican presidential candidates in the past, this time around they are telling us that they have more trust in Ron Paul as the best leader in these troubled times.

Israel already has at least 150 nuclear weapons (that we know about). By the time Iran gets one, Israel may have 300. Poor Iran if it uses just one bomb, and if somebody sneaks one in one Jerusalem, you can count on the Mossad to know who did it, and poor country that gets a rain of fire from that kind of foolishness.

Now they’re pushing the Jews against Ron Paul, as if US policy as applied by all these other guys has been effective. How’s that workin’ out for you? WHO is one of the few who voted against condemning Israel for bombing Iraq’s nuclear site? Ron Paul of course, who says we should let them sort it out as they see fit instead of tying their hands.

Nope, good thing the people, the grassroots, the farmer, the peasant, the laborer and the clerk are all paying attention to rational arguments rather than distorted caricatures of Ron Paul’s positions.

 

Oh, democracy in Iraq? “Victory” for what?

December 20, 2011

Obama and company just pulled another “Nixon”. Richard Nixon declared victory in Vietnam and got out. I guess they think it’s good strategy.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/12/19/iraq-issues-arrest-warrant-for-sunni-vice-president/?test=latestnews

Except this time the country is left in the hands of a “friendly” government. Right. The new Shiite government, under Maliki, has now ordered the arrest of the highest Sunni official for supposedly ordering hits on Shias. Right. Even Hugo Chavez does no better at excuses than this.

And look what else, as the covers come off. Iraq “vows” to shut down a camp of Iranian dissidents by the end of the year:

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2011/12/19/us-urges-iranian-dissidents-to-move-on-after-iraqi-camp-closure/?test=latestnews

WASHINGTON –  The Obama administration on Monday urged Iranian dissidents at a camp in Iraq to accept a U.N.-brokered deal to move to another location to avoid a possible violent standoff with Iraqi authorities who have vowed to close the facility by year’s end.

With the Iraqi government‘s Dec. 31 deadline to close Camp Ashraf looming, senior U.S. officials said that about 3,000 members of the People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran should leave and go to a new, temporary site near the Baghdad airport — likely Camp Liberty, the recently vacated former U.S. military base — where they could be processed for resettlement in other countries
