    The enemy is not only at our door but inside our house and in practically every room of citizens unaware of the powerful, pervasive forces of Islamic disinformation and the penetration of Islamic jihadists into every level of society the armed forces and agents of influence, for influencing American opinion by covert means, and misrepresentation in the news media. America is in self denial and Americans are dismissive of the fact that there are sleepers and moles long well entrenched, the widespread strategies employed by Islam to undermine every aspect of Western freedom and life-style. Fifth Column operating within U.S. will from time to time activate their killer squads to ferment fear and discord in a potentially disunited States of America and Canada. Boston was a one recent one off. Islam major weapon is deceit, and deceit is more than ever the instrument of their supremacist policy; weapon for the distortion of truth wielded aggressively under cover of a peaceful posture. The current al Qaeda threat is a deception. It's chiaroscuro!

    No need for conspiracy theories, just Machiavellian statecraft and dezinformatsiya. There is more than meets the eye in the Snowden saga. The FSB ran rings around everybody and the American media and the public fell for it hook, line and sinker with the American intelligence community not one whit the wiser. Everyone is barking up the wrong tree doing exactly what is expected of them. American intelligence people are charlatans, haven't a clue; what they thought hit them isn't what hit them. This brilliantly staged scenario of stirring up a hornet's nest is worthy of the erstwhile KGB. Do we really think that Edward Snowden is in Moscow by accident supposedly en route to somewhere else? Are people, especially the Americans so gullible? The answer is a resounding YES!
