    For some time, Glenn Beck has talked about the US policy of of "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". He states that policy is wrong as it has gotten us into hot water a number of times.

    So is it always wrong to think that the enemy of my enemy is my friend?

    No, not always. For example: The western countries' aid to the U.S.S.R. in WWII after the German invasion.

    More or less I've been saying the same thing for much longer than Glenn Beck. He says the media wants to keep us uninformed. I agree. He says his show is the only one that does keep us informed. :laugh:

    Then why isn't he telling us who was really behind the "arab spring"? Simple. He works for them. They pay him millions of dollars to keep their names and motives out of view and to point his finger in another direction.

    Beck is a gatekeeper. He gives you just enough information to make it seem like it's all Obama and the liberals fault. He's never going to tell us who Obama works for because he works for the same people.

    You want to know the real real story Salty. Get your information where Beck gets his.

    From Alex Jones and Tony Cartalucci.

    If Glenn Beck were to be replaced by Tony Cartalucci we'd get a much clearer and truer picture of what's going on around the world. Here's a bit of reporting we'd get with Tony that Glenn would never report on. But if he did he would spin it to protect the neocons and the transnational mega corporations that pay his salary.

    January 24, 2013 (LD - Tony Cartalucci) - In 2007, the Wall Street Journal published an article titled, "To Check Syria, U.S. Explores Bond With Muslim Brothers." And even then, it was noted that the Brotherhood held close links with groups the US recognizes and lists as terrorist organizations, including Hamas and Al Qaeda.

    The report gives a disturbing foreshadowing of US support that would eventually see the Muslim Brotherhood rise as both a political and terroristic power across the Arab World, after decades of hard-fought attempts to crush the sectarian extremist organization everywhere from Tunisia to Syria, from Egypt to Libya, to Jordan, and beyond. In fact, the 2007 Wall Street Journal article specifically noted that the US partnership could "destabilize governments in Jordan and Egypt, two US allies where the Brotherhood is a growing opposition force."

    Egypt is now run by a sectarian-extremist Muslim Brotherhood dictatorship, after the US incited unrest there in 2011, while Jordan is seeing increasing unrest led by the Jordanian arm of the Brotherhood.

    What is also disturbing about the 2007 report, is that it shows how allegedly "Bush-era" policies transcended the 2000-2008 administration and continued in earnest under President Obama.

    The report, written by Jay Solomon, echoes similar foreshadowing of the coming violent sectarian bloodbath now engulfing Syria, found in Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh's New Yorker piece titled, "The Redireciton: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?"

    Solomon begins by stating:

    That may be the one time it was wrong! It can be argued that aid to the USSR kept part of the German army busy. It can also be argued that without that aid there would have been no cold war!

    I am not sure that Beck doesn't have a screw or more loose.

    OR, for once we mostly agree on something. Although I am CERTAIN he has at least one screw loose, and probably more.

    I reckon this video applies to this topic. If only Glenn Beck had the guts to speak the truth like this guy. But if he did I expect he wouldn't have his multi million dollar job as a corporate talking head afterward.
