“Oblivion and distortion are two great detriments and dangers which lie in ambush for any great historical event.” 

 

 

Outstanding personalities, intellectuals and officials in charge of the arena of the Sacred Defense [of Iran after the overthrow of the Shah] should not allow this epic to be consigned to oblivion and to be distorted. 

 

 

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution described oblivion as the first harm for the Islamic Ummah. 

 

 

Referring to the issue of Palestine, he stated: “Today, global arrogance [The World Tyrant] tries to consign to oblivion the unique event of Palestine and the matter of the cleansing of Palestinian people out of cities and villages in this country.” 

 

 

Ayatollah Khamenei added that, despite all the plots of arrogance, the issue of Palestine has remained alive thanks to the Islamic Revolution and the genuine cries of Imam Khomeini [leader of the overthrow of the Shah] 

 

 

He [Khamenei] stressed: “We should not allow the great event of the Sacred Defense to be consigned to oblivion either.” 

 

 

[He] described distortion as the second great harm, saying: “It is meaningless to allow some cultural and artistic works —-which are produced in the name of the Sacred Defense— and the congresses which are held in this regard to contradict the nature and essence of this great event”. 

 

 

 

OBLIVION  AND  DISTORTION ARE 

 

TWO GREAT DETRIMENTS AND DANGERS 

 

WHICH LIE IN AMBUSH FOR ANY GREAT HISTORICAL EVENT.

CIA-SENATE SPAT COMPLICATES SPYING OVERSIGHT [Excerpt] 

 

 

 

 

“Even when Congress tries to do some oversight, they’re thwarted by the administration,” said Michelle Richardson of the American Civil Liberties Union. “I don’t think the public has faith in congressional oversight anymore.” 

 

 

The former chief counsel for the Church Committee, the special Senate panel created in 1975 that preceded today’s Senate and House intelligence oversight committees, urged Congress this week to appoint a special panel to review the intelligence activities of the CIA and NSA. 

 

 

“There is a crisis of public confidence,” F.A.O. Schwarz Jr. and more than a dozen former congressional aides wrote in a letter. 

 

 

“Misleading statements by agency officials to Congress, the courts and the public have undermined public trust 

 

in the intelligence community and 

 

in the capacity for the branches of government to provide meaningful oversight.”

ANALYSIS: CRISIS SHOWS RUSSIA’S [THE NEW RUSSIAN EMPIRE’S] POST-SOVIET ANGER [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

 

Few Western [World Tyrant / NATO] observers and students of East-West relations [*the* imperialist rivalry between The World Tyrant and The New Russian Empire] condone Putin’s actions in Ukraine 

 

But there is an understanding that the Ukraine crisis marks a Kremlin [New Russian Empire] decision that more than “20 years of trying to develop a better relationship with the West [The World Tyrant] has been a failure,” said Keith Darden, a professor of international service at American University. 

 

“The common assumption that the West [The World Tyrant] forced the collapse of the [FAKE] Soviet Union and thus won the Cold War is wrong.  The fact is that the Cold War ended by negotiation to the advantage of both sides,” [World Tyrant  ambassador to the FAKE Soviet Union at the end of the Cold War Jack] Matlock wrote on The Washington Post opinion page.  Since the [FAKE] Soviet collapse, he said, the problem is that the U.S. [The World Tyrant] has “insisted on treating Russia [The New Russian Empire] as the loser.” 

 

[Keith] Darden, of American University, says the annexation of Crimea marks Russia’s [The New Russian Empire’s] turn away from Europe [NATO], a turn away from the U.S. [The World Tyrant] toward a much more statist [independent] policy, and Crimea is just the beginning of what we’re going to see.”

NSA surveillance program reaches ‘into the past’ to retrieve, replay phone calls [Excerpts]

The voice interception program, called MYSTIC, began in 2009. Its RETRO tool, short for “retrospective retrieval,” and related projects reached full capacity against the first target nation in 2011.  Planning documents two years later anticipated similar operations elsewhere. 

 

 

In the initial deployment, collection systems are recording “every single” conversation nationwide, storing billions of them in a 30-day rolling buffer that clears the oldest calls as new ones arrive, according to a classified summary. 

 

 

Analysts listen to only a fraction of 1 percent of the calls, but the absolute numbers are high.  Each month, they send millions of voice clippings, or “cuts,” for processing and long-term storage.

 

 

Some other U.S. intelligence agencies also have access to RETRO.
