A Critical Analysis on the Reporting of Chemical Weapons in Syria

. False Flags, Media Hype, and Botched UN Inspections .By Subrata Ghoshroy,,  Research Affiliate, Program in Science, Technology, and Society, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Visiting Professor at Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan. There are perhaps two things that most Americans remember from the ill-fated invasion of Iraq in 2003: President George Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech on the flight deck of the USS Abraham Lincoln, and the testimony of Colin Powell, the Secretary of State, at the UN Security Council about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. Powell based his testimony on U.S. intelligence reports that were described as a “slam dunk” by the CIA Director George Tennet, who sat behind him as he showed dramatic pictures, among others, of purported…

The Significance of WikiLeaks as Invention of the World’s First True Free Press

By Nozomi Hayase, PhD, Member of The Indicter‘s Editorial Board. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange remains in solitary confinement inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he was granted asylum in 2012 against the threat of extradition to the United States for his publishing activities. In recent months, Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno, under pressure from the U.S. began threatening to evict this political refugee. When solidarity is needed the most in Assange’s plight, apathy seems to prevail among the American political left. Being affected by the mainstream media hype of Russia Gate that demonizes the organization’s role in the 2016 U.S. election, Democrats throw around opinions, blaming Assange for the victory of Trump. They accuse WikiLeaks as collaborating with a fascist,…

An OPCW Fact-Finding Mission (FFM) was swiftly formed and…

Does Humanity Deserve to Be Extinct?

By Gilbert Mercier, Associate editor at The Indicter Magazine, Time is up! All humans, men and women, are guilty as charged! Guilty of abusing other species and the natural world we depend on; guilty, either by greed or ignorance, of abusing other species that sustain our own and driving them to expedient extinction. Wild life, big and small, is briskly moving towards a vanishing point. From the seas to the land and the skies, the global species disappearing act has reached a catastrophic and probably unstoppable momentum. Mammals are dying, fish are dying, birds and insects are dying. Imagine a world as quiet as Nevada’s Death Valley in the summer. A world without trees, insects, and birds, where the heat can…

White Helmets operatives training “recruits”, rehearsal stage fires and fake lifesaving …and how to pose in photographs and videos later distributed by pro-NATO press agencies as if were ‘real rescue’ imagery or footage.

Why Americans Need to Defend Julian Assange’s Freedom

Criminalizing the act of publishing through the Espionage Act destroys the First Amendment as the guardian of democracy. By Nozomi Hayase, PhD, Member of The Indicter‘s Editorial Board. Over 50 years ago, in his letter from the Birmingham Jail, addressing a struggle of the civil right era, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote, “We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.” His message is now more prevalent than ever in the current political climate surrounding WikiLeaks and its founder Julian Assange. WikiLeaks stepped onto a global stage with release of a huge trove of classified documents revealing government secrecy. After…
