Although the principle of state sovereignty lies at the heart of international law, the super powers have not refrained from corrupting governments, destabilising societies, eliminating their leaders and even overthrowing regimes by means of covert action. While this form of interference is relatively inexpensive when weighed against the potential gains, it inevitably undermines trust among nations.
The Anglo-Saxons have become the masters of the game. As joint signatories to a 1948 secret military pact (UK-USA + Canada, Australia, New Zealand), they fashioned espionage and covert action tools to serve their common project: the Cold War. They were rivaling in this field against the Soviet Union, over which they had already attained undeniable superiority. Both Maoist China and post-colonial France also resorted to analogous means with a view to securing zones of interest, mainly in Africa.
The landscape changed completely after the demise of the USSR. China stopped financing armed revolutionary groups all around and concentrated on pragmatic intelligence efforts to sustain economic cooperation development. France withdrew from its private reserve in Africa to leave room for the European Union. Having outlived the Yeltsin abyss, Russian intelligence set about restructuring at the national level and in their historical area of influence (newly independent ex-Soviet states) by mobilizing against external intrusions rather than interfering in the affairs of other countries.
As of 1995, the Anglo-Saxons invested massively in their secret services, whose budget tripled over a 15-year period. In addition, they have drawn the Israeli services into their structure either as full members or as subcontractors. In 2009, the Anglo-Saxon services (except Israel) operate on an employment level of 250,000 men and a budget exceeding 100 billion dollars (i.e. 15 times higher than Russia’s, virtually their main competitor). In effect, espionage and covert action have become the essential tools of forced globalisation.
Mike Pence: Thank you to the Acting Director Meroe Park. Thank you for 27 years serving the United States of America here at CIA.
It’s a great privilege for me to be with you today and to have the opportunity to introduce at his first event, on his first full day, the new President of the United States, Donald Trump. (Applause.)
As you can imagine, it’s deeply humbling for my family and I to find ourselves in this role. I’m grateful to our new President for the opportunity he’s given me and (...)
Following the deaths of a Russian ambassador at Ankara and a high diplomat at Moscow, President Vladamir Putin has requested the Russian intelligence services to strengthen its protection of institutions both within the country and abroad. We highlight that some exceptional measures have been taken to protect President Putin’s annual press conference, scheduled for Friday.
Contrary to the Turkish practice, Ankara accepted that the inquiry on the assassination of the Russian Ambassador be (...)
Voltaire Network — On 18 December 2016, the UN Security Council will examine a draft resolution prepared by France requiring the deployment of observers of the UN and its “partners” (sic) [Draft, §3] at East Aleppo to supervise the evacuation of both civilians as well as “opposition fighters” (sic) [Draft, §1].
On Monday 19 December 2016, a Nato-Russia summit will take place just after Nato officers have been taken prisoners at East-Aleppo where they were training the jihadists. Just as when (...)
Thierry Meyssan considers that General Flynn is getting ready to rock the world of US intelligence and override all post 9/11 reforms. This would put an end to the obsession with secret prisons and targeted assassinations and mark a return to the true nature of intelligence: making sense of and anticipating developments around the world.
In a long interview, the ex-chief of Turkish counter-terrorism, Ahmet Sait Yayla, talks about the support offered personally to Daesh by Président Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Ahmet Sait Yayla left his country when repression was brought to bear on anyone who was not prepared to contribute to the policies of the AKP (the Justice and Development Party).
According to him:
Fidan, the head of the secret services (MIT) is in charge of the relations between the Turkish state, al-Qaïda and Daesh. (...)
A lively controversy has blown up concerning the briefing of the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, by the office of the Director of National Intelligence. Contrary to tradition, Donald Trump spoke publicly about this meeting. He noted that judging by the body language of his interlocutors, he was able to conclude that they were not in the habit of being listened to very attentively by President Barack Obama.
Trump revealed of nothing of the contents of their talks. However, his remarks (...)
For 30 years, the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) has been sub-contracting the legal part of illegal CIA operations. Without rousing suspicions, it has put in place the biggest network of corruption in the world, bribing trade unions and management syndicates , political parties both on both the Right and Left so that they defend the interests of the United States instead of their members. In this article, Thierry Meyssan describes the extent of this system.
A prosperous businessman and ex-Governor of Katanga, Moïse Katumbi, was arrested on the 13 May 2016. He was one of the principal leaders of the opposition to President Joseph Kabila in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He was apparently «brutalised» by the police and was hospitalised.
The General Prosecutor of Lubumbashi announced on the 20 May that Katumbi had been found guilty of «violation of the internal and external security of the State». He was remanded into custody.
The High Court (...)
While we have been stating for several weeks that the 3 billion Euros annually promised by the European Union to Turkey are not destined to help the migrants, but to finance the war against Syria, European deputy for Holland Sophie in t’Veld (Liberal Democrats) caused a shockwave by unmasking the scandal – according to her, no Treaty has been signed between the Union and Turkey.
This is unique in European history – the decisions taken by the Council have been formulated exclusively by way of (...)
On 7 April 2016, Jane’s revealed that in 2015 the US Navy Military Sealift Command had launched, two calls for tender to transport arms from the Romanian port of Constanta to the Jordanian port of Aqaba .
The weapons that could be identified were manufactured in Bulgaria. This confirms the previous enquiry of the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network as well as our own .
The winning bidder was Transatlantic Lineset and Geysir (IMO: 7710733) delivered the shipment.
The first (...)
On the 13th April 2016, the Judiciary of Russia banned the «Tatar Parliament», a Crimean separatist organisation supported by Turkey and Ukraine. According to the indictment – as we announced – it was this association which organised the blockade of trucks coming from Ukraine, and blew up the high-tension electric lines, plunging the peninsula into cold and obscurity.
The Judiciary considered that, given its terrorist activities, the «Tatar Parliament» could no longer benefit from the right to (...)
“Mayday, Mayday, Mayday, Moby Prince, we’re colliding! We are on fire! We need help!”: this is the dramatic message sent 25 years ago at 22:26 on 10 April 1991, from the cruiser Moby Prince, which entered into collision with the oil tanker Agip Abruzzo, in the roadstead of the port of Livorno.
A cry for help that was unheard: 140 die after waiting in vain for hours for help. A request for justice unheard: for 25 years, the relatives sought in vain for the truth. After three inquiries and two (...)
The Lebanese Telecommunications Minister, Boutros Harb, has announced the seizure of vast and very sophisticated secret installations, says L’Orient-Le-Jour.
He presented photos showing the seized equipment, including telecommunication towers, 3-meter satellite dishes, receivers and other major facilities.
The network covered the whole territory. It seems to have been installed by a foreign power to escape state supervision. It was a very serious threat to the security of Lebanon.

Western Europeans are convinced they live in a democracy. However, since the end of World War II, no one could freely choose to approach the Soviet Union or Russia. Whenever any one attempted it, terrorist campaigns, political assassinations and even a coup prevented it. In fact, Western European democracy does not apply when it comes to international issues. In this area, only the will of the United States matters.
For the first time in History, a team specialised in psychological operations is attempting to fabricate a candidate for the US Presidential elections and win him a home in the White House. His victory, if they succeed, would prove that it is possible to falsify the electoral process itself. It would also call into question the power of the military on civil institutions.
Contrary to appearances, the decision of the United States to investigate a possible Russian aid to anti-European parties is not intended to protect Europeans from foreign interference. This is quite the opposite. For 70 years, Washington controls the West European politics prohibiting all forms of genuine democracy.
The neo-conservatives and liberal hawks who have been preparing the war against Syria since 2001 have been relying on several states from the UNO and the Gulf Co-operation Council. While we know about the role played by General David Petraeus in launching and pursuing the war until today, two personalities - Jeffrey Feltman (number 2 at the UNO) and Volker Perthes (Director of the main German think tank) - have remained in the shadows. Together, with the support of Berlin, they have been using and are still manipulating the United Nations in order to destroy Syria.
New information, published by the Croatian daily Slobodna Dalmacija, alleges that the French state was responsible for the attacks which occurred in Paris in January and November 2015. Either the French authorities had previously infiltrated the groups which perpetrated these attacks, and chose not to intervene to prevent them, or else they were directly implicated in the organisation of the attacks. In any case, it remains to be determined who made these decisions, and whether or not he was acting on behalf of the Republic.
The Syrian crisis is a good example of duplicity and politician hypocrisy. While the Security Council unanimously adopted two resolutions, the first against the financing of Al Qaeda and Daesh and the second for peace in Syria, the war continues, fueled by... members of the Security Council. Is it an inability to be obeyed by his government, or a political incompetency who does not know what to do, or even a Machiavellian desire to make war without saying it?
Ivan Katchanovski, professor of political science at the University of Ottawa, conducted a study on the massacre perpetrated by snipers on the Maidan square of Kiev in February, 2014.
This document, from a presentation to the American Association of Political Sciences in San Francisco in September 2015, is the first academic study on this event.
It uses rational choice theory and Weber’s theory of instrumental rationality to examine the actions of key players from both the Yanukovich (...)
The recent declassification of over 3800 documents by the Central Intelligence Agency provides detailed proof that since 1953 the CIA operated two major programs intent on not only destabilizing Ukraine but Nazifying it with followers of the World War II Ukrainian Nazi leader Stepan Bandera.
The best-kept secrets must be revealed in the end. The mafia cartel which governs Bulgaria has been caught supplying drugs and weapons to Al-Qaïda and Daesh, at the demand of the CIA, both in Libya and Syria. The affair is all the more serious since Bulgaria is a member of NATO and the European Union.
In an interview with the French magazine Valeurs actuelles, Bernard Squarcini, ex-Director of French counter-espionnage (the DST, then the DCRI), declared that he had been contacted by Syria in 2012 with a proposition addressed to the French government offering to supply them with a list of French terrorists operating in Syria, in exchange for a normalisation of relations between their intelligence services. Manuel Valls, then Minister for the Interior, refused the offer for ideological (...)
Jonathan Pollard, of double nationality Israeli-US, was released on the 20th November 2015, and placed under « house arrest ». Caught in 1986 for espionnage for the profit of Israël, he had been sentenced to life imprisonment.
He is said to have transmitted to the Mossad an impressive quantity of US documents, sometimes concerning the Near East, but particularly concerning the surveillance methods used by the US to spy on the Soviet Union. Tel-Aviv later sold some of these documents to (...)
According to the English version of the Times of Israel, quoting Jonathan-Simon Sellem (photo), certain « representatives charged with the security of the French Jewish community » were warned on the morning of the 13th November 2015 of an imminent « vast terrorist attack » in France .
Jonathan-Simon Sellem has double nationality (Israeli-French) and is responsible for the Internet site JSSNews. An ex- civil servant for the Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs, he was elected as a French (...)
Nearly ten years after the Mumbai attacks, is still not known with certainty who sponsored them. Just do we know now that the victims have not all been chosen at random but a group of Indo-US personalities were particularly targeted. Although former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was no longer on the scene, his team still resident in one of the hotels attacked. This case should encourage us not to make hasty conclusions about the attacks in Paris.
The war which has now spread to Paris is incomprehensible for those French citizens who are ignorant of practically all the secret activities of their government in the Arab world, of its unnatural alliances with the Gulf dictators, and its active participation in international terrorism. These policies have never been discussed in Parliament, and the major media have rarely dared to take an interest in them.
Valentin Vasilescu demonstrates here the impossibility of the theory of a bomb placed in the plane. After having explored all hypotheses, there is now only one left – that of a failure in the software of the automatic pilot. We may therefore conclude that the accusations of the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as the claim for responsibility by the Islamic Emirate, are propaganda. The crash was not a terrorist attack. But the problems in the automatic pilot system may be either an accident or the effect of sabotage by an extremely specialised secret service.
