The Greanville Post • Vol. X | Encyclopedia of Domestic Assassinations
The Encyclopedia of Domestic Assassinations documents the political assassinations of people in the Anglosphere by their own government. The effort here is to both testify regarding this sad state of affairs, and to acknowledge the contributions of those slain. All of those included here were perceived by the State as a threat because of information they were willing to share, or in some cases, power they were willing to wield. In some ways these targets of State assassination paid the ultimate price for being willing to testify to the crimes of the state. They are whistleblowers who have paid the ultimate price. They are true patriots who deserve recognition and remembering.

Syria - The U.S. Propaganda Shams Now Openly Fail : Information Clearing House - ICH
The Obama administration, and especially the CIA and the State Department, seem to be in trouble. They shout everything they can against Russia and allege that the cleansing of east-Aleppo of al-Qaeda terrorist is genocidal. Meanwhile no mention is ever made of the famine of the Houthis in Yemen which the U.S. and Saudi bombing and their blockade directly causes.
But more and more major news accounts support the Russian allegation that the "moderate rebels" the U.S. is coddling in Syria are actually in cahoots with al-Qaeda if not al-Qaeda itself.
Reuters reports (though only at the end of a longer story):
Failures of the Western Left
It is tough to fight any real war. And it takes true guts, discipline and determination to win it.
For years and decades, the so-called ‘left’ in the West has been moderately critical of North American (and sometimes even of European) imperialism and neo-colonialism. But whenever some individual or country rose up and began openly challenging the Empire, most of the Western left-wing intellectuals simply closed their eyes, and refused to offer their full, unconditional support to those who were putting their lives (and often even the existence of their countries) on the line.
I will never forget all those derogatory punches directed at Hugo Chavez, punches coming from members of the ‘anti-Communist left’, after he dared to insult George W. Bush at the United Nations in 2006, calling him a “devil” and choking, theatrically, from the sulfur that was still ‘hanging in the air’ after the US President’s appearance at the General Assembly.
