250 officers from 8 units: UK diverts 'enormous resources' to probe Russian ex-spy's poisoning | 11 March 2018 | Amid hysteria surrounding the mysterious poisoning of Sergei Skripal, Britain is dedicating a significant part of the country's anti-terrorism capacity to look for Moscow's hand in the former Russian double agent's misfortune. The UK government has diverted significant resources, with eight out of Britain's 11 anti-terrorism units currently helping to investigate the poisoning of former GRU agent Sergei Skripal, Home Secretary Amber Rudd revealed, at a time when a "severe" international terrorism threat hangs over Britain. The UK believes that Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were exposed to a nerve agent. Following the incident, authorities managed to collect 240 pieces of evidence and have identified some 200 witnesses to the crime, Rudd said, noting that 250 officers are taking part in the investigation.

Islamists in E. Ghouta plan to stage false flag chemical attack - Damascus | 11 March 2018 | Syria's deputy foreign minister says militants plan a chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta on Sunday, will highlight the female victims and then pin the blame on Damascus. "We have received information that militants plan to stage an attack between the districts of Mesraba and Beit Sawa...The performance is thought to be scheduled for March 11," Deputy Foreign Minister, Faisal Mekdad, told journalists in Damascus. Earlier this week, the White Helmets, a self-proclaimed civil defense group, accused the Syrian government of staging a chlorine attack that affected 30 residents of Eastern Ghouta, a militant-held suburb of Damascus wrecked by intense fighting in the past month. The government, which [accurately] regards the White Helmets as a foreign-funded terrorist propaganda organization, has rejected these claims.

Although he was released from jail last year, he remained under house arrest. President Trump had denounced the government's handling of Saucier's case, calling it a political move and saying it contrasted with the velvet-gloved response to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's mismanagement of classified information through a private server.

7 Years on, Sailors Exposed to Fukushima Radiation Seek Their Day in Court --Special investigation: US military personnel are sick and dying, and want the nuclear plant's designers and owners to take responsibility. | 09 March 2018 | ...There are currently 99 operating civilian nuclear reactors in the United States, and 22 of those are General Electric Mark 1 boiling-water reactors--the make and model identical to the three that melted down and exploded at Fukushima Daiichi. Based on a 1955 design, all but four of the US reactors have now been online for more than 40 years. All of them have the same too-small primary containment vessel, the same questionable alloys, the same bolted-on lid, the same safety systems, and (with one exception) the same vent "upgrade" that failed to prevent the tragic failures at the Japanese nuclear plant. Large US cities, such as Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC, are all closer to BWRs than Tokyo is to Fukushima Daiichi.

Two 'heroic' SWAT team members are suspended without pay for disobeying orders and responding to Florida high school massacre while 'cowardly' deputies cowered outside | 09 March 2018 | Two Florida SWAT team members have been suspended after responding to the Florida massacre without their bosses' permission. Detectives Jeffrey Gilbert and Carl Schlosser - as identified by the Florida Sun-Sentinel - did not tell superiors that they were going to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where mass shooter Nikolas Cruz, 19, [allegedly] killed 17 people. After they jumped into action without following protocol, the two were suspended from the Miramar Police Department's 'privileged program' on February 22 and were ordered to surrender their SWAT-issued rifles. [This is what happens when to you try to halt a (possible) false flag, already in progress. The Parkland shooting is looking like it was a LIHOP (Let It Happen On Purpose) or a MIHOP (Make It Happen On Purpose). --LRP]

School Safety Administrator Discusses Disturbing Evidence in Parkland School Shooting | 07 March 2018 | Wolfgang Halbig, a retired Florida State school administrator and safety expert who researched the Sandy Hook school shooting in 2012 and concluded it was a "contrived event," turns his investigative skills to the shooting at Parkland high school. Halbig wrote the school safety plan for the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School high school in 2006, and says that the Parkland shooting follows the same script as the Sandy Hook event: There were no trauma helicopters called in, paramedics were not allowed into the school, and it is unknown who declared the victims dead. Halbig discusses in great detail numerous examples of how school administrators and police violated well known safety protocols, the effect of which was to put children and teachers into high risk of being killed -- all in violation of established safety protocols.

Commenting on the Pentagon's plans to build, train and equip a massive 'Vetted Syrian Opposition' to 'fight' Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS [but still I-CIA-SIS]) in Syria, a number of US-based experts told RT the move has nothing to do with combatting terrorism. Instead, US weapons and aid could easily land in the hands of Islamist extremists, as has often been seen in the past.
