Trump Tosses Bone To Christian Right But At What Price?

Trump_Donald-04b.jpgSign-Choose_Life_Not_War-01.jpgPresident Trump again shows us that he is a master of deal making. He signed a bill that seems to reduce Planned Parenthood’s funding, which will help cement to Trump the support from the Zionist wing of Christian Evangelicalism.  And, he did it at the very time he has taken selective killing into his own hands in bombing our one time ally, Syria. Chuck Carlson and Craig Hanson delve into the perplexing "pro life" sentiment of millions of evangelical Christians who are, paradoxically, "war willing" in their supprt for America's serial wars. Articles referenced in this thought provoking podcast: here and here. (21 mins.)

The Israeli Emperor Has No Clothes-Part II-Exposing the Facts

Netanyahu_B-18.jpgIsrael-Crucifixtion.pngIt's official. Israel is an apartheid state according to the well researched report released by the UN, "Israeli Practices Toward the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid." It concludes that Israel is guilty of policies that constitute apartheid and, therefore, crimes against humanity. In "The Israeli Emperor Has No Clothes-Part I-The Unveiling" we expose the cover up to hide the report from world scrutiny. In this report Craig Hanson delves into the damning facts in the defamed report. (39 mins.)

The Israeli Emperor Has No Clothes-Part I-The Unveiling

Netanyahu_B-18.jpgIsrael-Crucifixtion.pngIsrael continually gets away with its brutal, military occupation of Palestine, often by getting the US to intercede for them. A recent event demonstrates this. The release of a 74 page UN report, "Israeli Practices Toward the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid" concludes that Israel is guilty of policies that constitute apartheid and, therefore, crimes against humanity. Most of the world understands this. US Ambassor Nikki Haley quickly condemned the report and the UN was forced to remove it, two days after it was released. In this fascinating report, Craig Hanson looks under the covers as to what is going on. In his analysis, Craig references an article by Richard Falk, "Richard Falk: Anger at my Israel 'apartheid' report puts free speech at risk," one of the authors of the well researched report. Curiously, Israel makes no mention that Richard Falk is Jewish. Falk is an international law and international relations scholar who taught at Princeton University for 40 years. In 2008 he was also appointed by the UN to serve a six-year term as the Special Rapporteur on Palestinian human rights. In Part II, Craig will analyze the contents of the report in depth in "The Israeli Emperor Has No Clothes-Part II - Exposing The Facts." (29 mins.)

Visiting Palestine and the Holy Land as Pilgrim Not Tourist

Garcia_Isai-01.jpgIsai Garcia, a seminary student at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary gives a remarkable account of his recent,  eyeopening pilgramage to Palestine and the Holy Land. Sadly, the majority of American Christian who go to Israel, just go as tourists looking at Biblical sites. And, most often, they come away with no idea about the obstacles their Palestinian Christian brothers and sisters in Christ face in a country of military occupation that is rife with discrimination, even towards the arab citizens of Israel. In this program, Isai recites "The Pilgrim's Prayer" that started every day on their travels through the Holy Land. (31 minutes) In the photo, Isai is standing in front of the Israeli separation wall that is surrounding and choking off places like Bethlehem (see "Keep Bethlehem Open and Help Palestinian Christians Stay")

US Continues Extra-Judicial Killing Policy Targets 8 Year Old American Citizen in Yemen

 al-Awlaki_Nawar-Abdurahman.jpgPresident Donald Trump has carried on with what President Bush started and President Obama expanded: Extra-Judicial Executions that include American citizens. In the first such action by President Trump, a Navy Seal incursion team in Yemen killed 8 year old, American citizen. Nawar Al-Awlaki in a raid against "terrorists." In a cruel twist of irony, Nawar's older brother, Abdulrahman, was killed in a 2011 drone attack authorized by President Obama just two weeks after his father, Anwar Al-Awlaki, was killed by a drone attack. In this podcast Chuck Carlson and members of WHTT discuss the ramifications of these deadly actions. For background inforamation, see "Please, Trump, Stop Extajucicial Killings." (24 mins.)

Where Are The Peace Makers As U.S. Warms Up For Another Cold War

Cold_War-II-03.jpgThe U.S. desperately needs new enemies to keep its war based economy on high alert. It should be intuitive obvious to the casual observer, including Christians who claim to follow Jesus, the Prince of Peace, that the U.S. prefers war to peace. In this podcast we look at the massive NATO military build up in eastern Europe rivaling the Berlin crisis of 1961. Russia is being moved into America's "Number One Enemy" slot. For background material, read Chuck Carlson's article, "Massive Army Deployment is Deliberate Restart of ‘The Cold War’" and listen to our podcast "Christian Zionism is a War Based Religion."

Christian Zionism Is A War Based Religion

Armageddon-05.jpgChristian Zionism is a war based, political religion wrapped around the notion that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. It is a form of dispensational Christian theology (less than 200 years old) where war figures into its end times theology. In this podcast, Chuck Carlson, Tom Compton and Craig Hanson delve into various aspects of this war based religion including numerous, prominent evangelical Christian leaders like Henry Blackaby, Chuck Colson (deceased), Bill Bright (deceased) of Campus Crusade, D. James Kennedy (decesead), Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Conference, Ted Haggard, John McArthur, Dr. Wayne Grudem (author of "Politics According to the Bible") and John Hagee who have blessed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, both before and after the wars started. They've gone so far as to say these wars are "just wars" according to their intrepretation of the Bible. WHTT's Chuck Carlson warned his fellow Baptists in 1990 about not going to war against Iraq ("Iraq: Americans Prepped For 'War'." Also, before the 2003 Gulf War on Iraq, WHTT opposed going to war, again (see here). An excellent article from 2004 in antiwar.com exposes evangelical Christians who support unjust wars:  Pro-War Christians Should Come Clean.

Christian Zionists Practice Israel Worship

CUFI-01.jpgThis excellent and balanced news report from Australia exposes the war based religion that is known as Christian Zionism. Even though this program was originally aired in 2007, it is still accurate and applicable now. The reporter from the Australian Broadcasting Company interviews Christian Zionist. mega church, Pastor John Hagee who founded the pro-Israel lobby, Christians United For Israel (CUFI), the Christian Zionist version of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee). A Jewish rabbi in Hagee's home town of San Antonio, TX, that is interviewed expresses that Hagee's agenda is detrimental to Jews in America and to Israel. Also interviewed is the Palestinian Ambassor. who is a Christian, and who says that Hagee's brand of Christianity is an embarassment to Palestinian Christians. (17 mins.)

Keep Bethlehem Open And Help Palestinian Christians Stay

Open_Bethlehem-08.jpgVictories for the struggle for peace and justice for Palestinians come slowly, but are coming more frequently. We discuss the inspiring documentary Open, Bethlehem by Palestinian filmmaker, Leila Sansour. and her Bethlehem passport project designed to put wings to her film. We also talk about a recent, major victory in Boulder, Colorado where a resolution to make the Palestinian city of Nablus a sister city to Boulder was passed by the city council over strong opposition from vocal, local Zionists. It's of a few sister city projects in the US with a Palestinian town in the West Bank. In 2009, the city of Sacramento, Ca passed a sister city resolution with Bethlehem. (16 mins.)

Palestinian Pastor Confronts His Fellow Southern Baptist Church Leaders

Bishara_Jamal-02.pngJamal Bishara, a Palestinian Christian and Sputhern Baptist pastor spoke out against a "Pray for Israel" (but not for Palestinians) resolution passed at the annual Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) meeting in St. Louis. Dispensational and outright, Christian Zionist theology is widely held among prominent, Southern Baptists leaders and pastors, like Richard Land, Adrian Rogers and Charles Stanley. Pastor Jamal reveals in this inspirational podcast that he remains a Southern Baptist so that he can be "Salt and Light" to other SBC pastors by challenging the pro-Israel theological bent prevalent in the SBC.

Will Southern Baptists Become Peacemakers?

Sign-Where_Are_The_Peace_Makers.jpgFive months before the war against Iraq in 2003 started, Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) declared that a war against Iraq would be a "just war" according to his and other evangelical leaders' interpretation of the Bible. Fast forward to 2016 and it still appears that Southern Baptists have a way to go before they can be called peacemakers. However, there are some encouraging signs from some peacemakers within the SBC who asking to be heard. Listen and find out what's going on. (23 mins.)

Israel Is Walling Off Bethlehem, The Birth Place of Jesus

Millions of American Christians are unaware of the plight of the city of Bethlehem and its Palestinian inhabitants in the West Bank of Palestine. The Israeli built separation wall snakes its way around Bethlehem, even cutting off Palestinians from their own land and nearby Jerusalem. This story is courageously told by Palestinian filmmaker, Leila Sansour in her Open, Bethlehem documentary that is part of a campaign to educate her fellow Christians and the world about the stranglehold by Israel that is slowly causing Palestinian Christians to leave the Holy Land because of the hardships imposed by the military occupation. To increase the awareness of what is happening to Bethlehem, a Bethlehem Passport is being issued by the OPEN BETHLEHEM campaign in partnership with the Governorate of Bethlehem.  So far, the passport has been granted to more than 500 people around the world, including church leaders and heads of states, such as Archbishop Rowan Williams, Pope Benedict XVI, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and President Jimmy Carter. The passport states: “In that the bearer of this passport is a citizen of Bethlehem; that they recognize this ancient city provides a light to the world, and to all people who uphold the values of a just and open society; that they will remain a true friend to Bethlehem through its imprisonment, and that they will strive to keep the ideals of Bethlehem alive as long as the wall stands; we ask you to respect the bearer of the passport and to let them pass freely.” Showings of Open, Bethlehem are starting in the United States after a successful introduction in the UK. Check the website for showings, or the complete documentary can be seen on line (Click Here). This is the 4 minute trailer.  For more information on Liela Sansour's campaign to bring down the wall around Bethlehem check out the Huffington Post UK article.

Jesus Left Behind at Christian Zionist Bash

Christian_Zionism-01.jpgWhen attending a Christians United For Israel (CUFI) don't expect Jesus to be invited even when held at a venue like the Lakeview Assembly Church in Stockton, CA. We Hold These Truths' CA Outreach Director, Craig Hanson, conducted a one man vigil recently at a CUFI "Night to Honor Israel" event held at Lakeview. Then, Craig went into the lion's den claiming to be a Christian to find out that Jesus was left behind and not mentioned. Craig's report is most interesting and informative. Be sure to also listen to Craig Hanson's "Confessions of a Former Christian Zionist" to better understand how Christian Zionists' theology work. (28 mins.)

Confessions of a Former Christian Zionist

Christian Zionism beliefs influence over 40 million American Christians. We Hold These Truths' California Outreach Director, Craig Hanson, has been a dedicated follower of Jesus for over 40 years. During most of that time, Craig was deceived by the Christian Zionist belief that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and that this doctrine was never to be challenged by a dedicated, true believing, premillenial dispensationalist (PMD) Christian. To do or say anything against Israel and its actions toward Palestinians would be a sin against God, according to Christian Zionist dogma. Craig reveals how, over three years ago, he was challenged to re-evaluate his Christian Zionists beliefs that led him to realize that they are very divisive and dangerous to followers of Jesus Christ, and, everyone else. Craig's story is most revealing and eyeopening.  To gain further insight into Christian Zionism, be sure to watch our award winning documentary, "Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I"  and, listen to our interview with Pastor Rob Dalrymple about his book, "These Brothers of Mine: A Biblical Theology of Land and Family and a Response to Christian Zionism."

ELCA Lutherans Palestinian Peace Not Walls Campaign-Major Breakthrough

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) approved a resolution calling on the U.S. government to end all aid to Israel if Israel does not stop building settlements and “enable an independent Palestinian state." Voting at its triennial assembly in New Orleans that ended recently, the church also sought a halt to all investment in companies that profit from Israel’s occupation and called on the president of the United States to recognize the State of Palestine. The ELCA has joined several other mainline Christian denominations in calling for a just and peaceful resolution to the Israel/Palestine conflict. Chuck Carlson and Tom Compton discuss this encouraging development and look at the greater context of it in this 16 min. podcast. Ref. ECLA's Peace Not Walls campaign.

In 1990, before the first war on Iraq was started, Chuck Carlson wrote a groundbreaking letter to his fellow Southern Baptists, urging them not to take the bait of hate and the drums of war being directed against Saddam Hussein and Iraq, a predominantly Muslim country (but with over a million Christian citizens). This fascinating, 19 minute program traces the ongoing war against Islam to the current time.

Vigil To Punch A Hole In The Israeli Separation-Apartheid Wall

Dr. Dan Tirza was appointed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be the Chief Architect of the Israeli "Security Barrier" (more accurately known by honest observers as the "Separation/Apartheid Wall"). Christians United For Israel (CUFI), the Neo-Christian/Christian Zionist organization, has been showcasing Dr. Tirza at their "Standing With Israel" events that are held in churches around the country. Tom Compton of We Hold These Truths talks about the effectiveness of his one man vigil to challenge The Oasis Church's CUFI event in Tucson, AZ. It wasn't planned to be a one man vigil, but that's how "organizing" goes sometimes. Tom is joined by fellow one man vigiler veterans, Craig Hanson and Chuck Carlson to talk about our vigils of conscience. The New York Times article exposing the myth that Israel built a "Security Barrier" is "Smugglers in West Bank Open Door to Jobs in Israel, and Violence" and the revealing, Mondoweiss story that fills in the holes the NY Times left out is "Front-page article in ‘NYT’ exposes the lie that wall is a security barrier." Also, mentioned in the 23 minute podcast, is "These Brothers of Mine" by Rob Dalrymple.

The War Of Words Against Russia Could Turn Hot

It should be obvious to an honest observer that the United States has a war based economy that needs creditable enemies to keep the war machine well oiled. With the continued demonetization of Vladimir Putin and Russia, is the US trying to provoke a hot war with Russia? The two articles mentioned in the program are "America's Biggest of All Big Lies. We're Not Threatening Russia" and "U.S. State Department Officials Call For Strikes Against Syria'a Assad." Also, the documentary, "All Wars Are Bankers' Wars" is worth watching. Also, worth reading is the book, "Secrets of the Federal Reserve" by Eustace Mullins. (21 mins.)

Call Them Neo-Christians

Neo-Christianity is defined as a reinterpretation of Christianity in terms of a current philosophy. The Neo-Christian movement is dominated by Christian Zionism, that is the largest Christian sect in America, whose belief system has been formalized within the last 110 years. Christian Zionist belief is wrapped around the idea that the modern state of Israel is a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy and that anything said or done against Israel constitutes a sin against God. It's a tightly held belief as evidenced by a recent encounter by Chuck Carlson at a street fair in Denver. Craig Hanson and Tom Compton join Chuck to discuss the pitfalls of talking to Christians with Neo-Christian leanings in this revealing program. For background information, see Chuck Carlson's article, "Call Them Neo-Christians." (30 minutes)

Neo-Christians Use Scofield Bible To Justify War

Neo-Christian, cult-like Christian Zionism is being exposed more frequently for what it really is, an aberrant version of traditional Christianity. In this program, Chuck Carlson, Tom Compton, Craig Hanson and Glen Lesnick of We Hold These Truths discuss an insightful article, "Zionism's Un-Christian Bible" by Maidhc O Cathail, a journalist from Ireland. Mr. O Cathail's article concludes with this thought, "But it is the people of the Middle East who have suffered most at the hands of an expansionist Israel, emboldened by the unswerving allegiance of America’s Christian Zionists who were led to believe that Scofield’s words were God’s will." Here are the references mentioned in the program: "These Brothers of Mine: A Biblical Theology of Land and Family and a Response to Christian Zionism" (book and interview) by Dr. Rob Dalrymple. (27 mins.) Kudos to Maidhc O Cathail.

Neo-Christian Churches Are Missing Out On Righteous Indignation

Neo-Christians support America's unjust wars without question and seem oblivious to what the famous Catholic theologian, Thomas Aquinas (1224-1275 AD) said, "He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And, if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust." The unjust military occupation of Palestine by Israel is an example where there is a lack of knowledge and righteous indignation, for the most part, by Neo-Christians. We Hold These Truths' Tom Compton recently learned from Palestinian Ambassador Maen Rashid AreiKat (Chief Representative of the General Delegation of the PLO to the United States) about their new understanding that educating American Christians to the plight of Palestinians, is vitally important.

Romans 13 Neo-Christians Sorry Excuse for War

Christian Zionists and Neo-Christians routinely justify the wars of aggression by the United States of America by citing the thirteenth chapter of the book of Romans, written by the Apostle Paul. We Hold These Truths' award winning documentary, Christian Zionism: The Tragedy and The Turning, Part I  was recently challenged by a veteran, who wrote in part: "I am not a Christian Zionist...Charles E. Carlson (at the ~4:00 mark) does not know his bible either. He does not understand Romans 13, and the fact that the State does wield the power of the sword." In this podcast we look at Romans 13 and what should be our take away from it based on a ground breaking article, "Romans 13: Neo-Christians Sorry Excuse for War" written by Chuck Carlson a few years ago. Did Romans 13 give German Christians the authority to follow Hitler wherever he led them? (29 min.)

Nakba - The Ongoing Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

Mention the word "Nakba" to most Americans and you will get a blank stare. "Nakba" is a the Arabic word for "catastrophe" and refers to the forced expulsion of over 750,000 Palestinians in 1948 from their homes, and the destruction of over 400 of their villages by the Zionists while establishing the modern state of Israel. We Hold These Truths was a co-sponsor of the North America Nakba Tour stop in Phoenix. In this 19 minute program, we lift the curtain that hides the truth about Nakba.

Now, Prince is all concerned about the fate of Christians in the Middle East while demonizing Muslims. Conveniently, Prince makes no mention of the culpability of the US and its allies in the wars they created in the Middle East, and, the resulting blowback from them that is affecting innocent Christians and Muslims in the region.

Sharing Values - The American and Israeli Way

Cruz_Ted-AIPAC-02.jpgUS politicians love to pledge their allegiance to Israel, when given a chance. Sen. Ted Cruz demonstrated this in his address to the 2016 AIPAC convention. "Israel is a democracy that shares our values." The concept of "shared values" should include the American and Israeli governments' treatment of their respective, indigenous populations, Indians and Palestinians. Here are two examples that come to mind that are in a pdf file.

Major Presidential Candidates Except the Bern Pledge Allegiance to AIPAC and Israel

US presidential candidates, without the blessings of AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee) don't have a prayer of winning in the general elections. Front runners Hilary Clinton, Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump understand this and delivered their "pledges of allegiance to Israel" speeches to the 18,000 delegates assembled at the recently held AIPAC convention in Washington, DC. Sen. Bernie Sanders was the noticeable exception. as he had declined the invitation from AIPAC to speak. Instead, he delivered some critical remarks, while on the campaign trail in Utah, about Israel's destructive policies against the Palestinians. (see here and here)  Sanders, who is Jewish, like prominent, Jewish industrialist Benjamin Freedman, challenged the Zionists on the issue of Israel. Chuck Carlson and WHTT members discuss the implications of all this in this lively, 28 min. program.

They have been held in an ICE detention center in Florence, AZ for over a year because Palestine is not recognized as a country by the United States (they are considered stateless people), even though Palestine is by 134 other countries around the world  (see here). A discussion about the broader issues of refugees and immigration and the culpability of the United States is included. For background stories on Hisham and Mounis see here & here.

Let’s talk about it as two followers of Christ, trying to correctly follow Him." Our program includes a discussion about C.I. Scofield and his reference Bible. (Check out "The Shadowy Origins of C.I.

This program includes a discussion about the Wahhabi sect, and how it is used, not as a practicing religion, but largely as population control mechanism by the secular, sometimes hard drinking, dope dealing, mega-billionaire royalty of Saudi Arabia. There it reigns terror on non-royal, Saudi citizens, and, even guests.  For openers, both Wahhabi and ISIS sects behead for punishment, but no other Islamic sect does!  The two articles referenced in the podcast are:: "The Wall Street Skew of the Saudi/Iranian Rift" and "The US Warmakers' Divide and Conquer Strategies in the Middle East."

One Person Vigil At Christian Zionist Event Gets Remarkable Results

In this 27 minute program, first time, We Hold These Truths vigil leader, David Canaday, talks about his successful, one man vigil held at "A Night For Israel" event in Montrose, CO that was sponsored by Victoria Hearst (one of the heirs of the Hearst publishing dynasty) of Praise Him Ministries in Ridgeway, CO. This was a Christian Zionist event that was not sponsored by Christians United For Israel (CUFI). However, one of CUFI's staff, Dr. Billye Brim, was one of the speakers. Find out how David Canaday, only armed with two powerful handouts "Do Followers of Christ Have An Obligation To Israel: What Does the Bible Say?" and "Facts For Those Attending PHM's 'A Night For Israel,'" could strike fear in the hearts of the organizers of this event.

WHTT Joins Anti-War Activists at Christian Zionist Event in San Francisco

In this outstanding 30 minute program, Craig Hanson, WHTT's CA Outreach Director, talks about a milestone vigil held at a CUFI event, with an interesting twist, at the Russian Gospel Temple in San Francisco. Craig joined with anti-war activists from Code Pink, Occupy San Francisco and The World Can't Wait, who wanted to challenge the discriminatory practices by Christian Zionist outfits, like Christians United For Israel (CUFI) that unconditionally support wars to protect Israel, advocate peace and justice only for Jewish residents of Israel, while ignoring the plight of Palestinians, even Christian Palestinians. The location of the vigil was ideal for Craig to hand out challenging fliers to the attendees.  Check out the flier: "Does the Bible Require Followers of Jesus to Support the Jewish State of Israel?"

In this eyeopening,18 minute program, Chuck Carlson, Tom Compton, Craig Hanson and Glen Lesnick of We Hold These Truths look at US militarism and what effect it has on the refugee crisis in Syria and elsewhere.

Use Your Own Senses in Judging ISIS and Syria

In this 25 minute program, Chuck Carlson  expands on his article, by the same title, about what the US government and main stream media is not telling us about ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq & Syria) and its sources of revenues. Chuck cuts through the fog using old fashioned logic.  For example, he analyzes a Financial Times article, "ISIS Inc.: how oil fuels the jihadhi terrorists" and makes some startling observations.

The Clandestine US War Against Muslim Sudan For Its Oil

In this fascinating, 23 minute podcast, Chuck Carlson and members of We Hold These Truths discuss one of America's forgotten, proxy wars against Sudan. It should be no secret to informed and honest Americans, that the US wars just don't happen.  They take planning.  Retired General John Wesley Clark learned shortly after 911 that wars against seven Muslim countries were planned.  In 2007, then retired Gen. Clark confirmed this publicly (see here and here). We Hold These Truths helped expose the lucrative, Sudanese "slave" redemption, fund raising efforts conducted by evangelical Christian churches in the late 1990's and early 2000's (WHTT groundbreaking articles on Sudan: here).

Zio-Christians Legitimize Israel’s Land Theft


In this thought provoking, 23 minute program, Craig Hanson and Tom Compton join Chuck Carlson to discuss the issue of property rights in Israel.  What about the indigenous Philistines that are now referred to as Palestinians? Do they have any property rights or do the Biblical concepts about property rights not apply to them anymore? The Zionists claimed that they have occupied "a land with no people for a people without a land" and that the Palestinians are an invented people. The inspiration for this program was from a revealing news story aired on mainstream media MSNBC, that talked about the shrinking lands of the Palestinians. (See - the story and the retraction made after pressure from Zionists applied on MSNBC and a story by Alison Weir of If Americans Knew, "MSNBC, Martin Fletcher Disavow Map of Palestine Being Wiped Off the Map").  Craig Hanson provides his interpretation in his article, "Property Rights In Israel."

In this report, a clip from the keynote address by Erick Stakelbeck (at right), the Christian Broadcasting Network's "CBN News Terrorism Analyst," will help the listener understand how Christian Zionism beliefs are so dangerous and un-Christ-like.

Showdown In Syria - The Peacemakers Vs. The Piecetakers

In this 15 minute program Chuck Carlson and members of We Hold These Truths discuss recent events in Syria and Afghanistan.  While Vladimir Putin has a good start on destroying ISIS in Syria, the American Piecetakers had to change their story four times about the deadly American attack on a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan that killed 12 medical staff and 10 patients.  We're told that it was just one of those tiny boo-boos the American Empire's forces frequently make.  Judge for yourself.
