U.S. wants end to Afghan combat mission in 2013

By Barbara Starr and Adam Levine, with reporting by Rachel Burstein and Larry Shaughnessy

The United States and NATO want to end their combat mission in Afghanistan next year, transitioning primarily to a training role in which Afghan security forces will take the lead, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Wednesday.

"Our goal is to complete all of that transition in 2013 and then, hopefully, by mid- to the latter part of 2013, we'll be able to make a transition from a combat role to a training, advise and assist role," he told reporters traveling with him to Brussels, according to a transcript released by the Pentagon. The result will be that "2014 then becomes a year of consolidating the transition and making sure that those gains are in fact held, so that we can move towards a more enduring presence beyond 2014."

That enduring presence will include "a large civilian presence" involved with development, he continued.

Under Panetta's scenario, the transition would come a year before the 2014 deadline to end the war in Afghanistan that had been set by the Obama administration.

A U.S. administration official stressed that the transition is 2013 is the hope, but "nothing is final" until leaders of the NATO countries convene in Chicago this May.

In a statement, Rep. Adam Smith, ranking member of the House Armed Service Committee, called Panetta's timeline "a reasonable goal."

But the committee chairman, Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon, said it was too early to make such predictions. "Announcing a change in mission in Afghanistan - before we have even validated the Afghan Security Forces can maintain stability in the areas we have already transitioned and ahead of the fighting season - is premature," he said.

"Our goal is to complete all of that transition in 2013 and then, hopefully, by mid- to the latter part of 2013, we'll be able to make - you know, to make a transition from a combat role to a training, advise and assist role, which is basically fulfilling what Lisbon was all about," the administration official said in an email.

Late last year, Gen. John Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, said U.S. forces will begin to be deployed this year within Afghan units as advisers and trainers, reducing the direct combat role of foreign troops in the country.

Afghanistan's security force exceeds 305,000 and is headed toward 352,000 this year. At the same time, the United States will be withdrawing forces throughout 2012, with the goal of reducing U.S. troop strength to 68,000 by year's end from more than 100,000. There will also be 38,000 troops from other NATO countries.

The U.S. goal is for Afghan forces, advised by Americans, to take the lead.

"That will, in many respects, be a preview of how we'll see our forces postured in the years to come," Allen said in December. "The crossover point where we become largely an advisory, assisting and education force versus a force that is engaged at any given moment in counterinsurgency, that crossover point remains to be determined."

The United States will still maintain its commitment to transition to an Afghan lead by the end of 2014, according to Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby.

"Nothing has changed about the strategy our troops are executing: We are working to prevent Afghanistan from ever again becoming a safe haven for al Qaeda and its allies," Kirby said in a statement. "Nothing has changed about the goal of developing strong and capable Afghan security forces."

The news comes a few days after France announced that it will withdraw its troops a year earlier than 2014. That announcement came after four of its troops were killed by an Afghan soldier.

The Obama administration has taken pains to to show that the alliance is still strong and committed to the 2014 deadline.

"The end of this process, the end of this transition, the end of this drawdown in which the Afghans fully move into the lead, is slated to be 2014," White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes said in Chicago on Tuesday. "Just as we made decisions about the pace of our drawdown, other nations will make decisions."

NATO will meet in May in Chicago to discuss the war and to ensure that the 28-member alliance is "aligned on our drawdowns and transition," Rhodes said.

But there are significant questions as to whether the NATO and Afghanistan can sufficiently weaken the Taliban or bring them to the negotiating table.

A leaked NATO report underscores concerns about Pakistan's support of the Taliban. The document revives the longstanding accusation that elements in Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence agency are aiding the insurgency in Afghanistan.

It says the ISI knows the whereabouts of all senior Taliban commanders, according to a Times of London journalist who has read the classified NATO document.

The Obama administration is trying to get the Taliban to negotiate and has proposed a transfer of some prisoners from Guantanamo to Qatar as a sign of good faith by the United States. The administration said any discussion about releasing the detainees would be preliminary and would hinge on the Taliban renouncing terrorism and agreeing to peace talks.

In addition to the release of Guantanamo prisoners, the Taliban would be allowed to open an office in Qatar.

But that proposed transfer is controversial. In a letter to President Obama on Wednesday, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-California, a former Marine officer who served in Afghanistan, warned that the release would "send the wrong message to the Taliban."

"Releasing prisoners strictly for the purpose of accelerating negotiations undermines the U.S. mission in Afghanistan and deliberately ignores the threat of a Taliban resurgence," Hunter wrote.

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, who attended a briefing by administration officials on Tuesday night about the potential release, called it "really, really bizarre."

"This whole thing is highly questionable because the Taliban know we're leaving. They know we're leaving. Put yourself in their shoes." McCain said. "There are many people who are experts in the region who say they are rope-a-doping us."

Even as the United States plans its withdrawal, it is working on ensuring that it can continue to supply troops. The Obama administration is temporarily lifting a ban on military assistance to Uzbekistan, a Central Asian nation that plays a crucial role in providing an overland supply route for U.S. military cargo into Afghanistan.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed a waiver January 18 under which the United States can provide Uzbekistan with "non-lethal" defensive equipment, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday.

    i leave my typing postings with some mistakes because it would be more dangerous if i sounded totally clear and accurate and like finished discussions. do you get the drift of what i am trying to say. also the swearing to just like make you understand that i don't like you people at all.
    i can't stand what you figure you can do criminall regularly as if it is your protected crime right to do. american english ways are not models of society to be followed. and you all complain about hitler - but you are all running a hitler death camp constantly. it so retardedly stupid that you figure we have to pretend you aren't all that stuff you complain about that is done to you. you do more hitler shit than 20,000 hitlers. and you have film to show off about it too, but you didn't show it all. that's the difference. hitler syndicates that torture and bury and torture and cripple and bury until they get their criminal gains ways. who's going to be alive to talk and threaten warn or jjust warn after a few years.who are all those hitler nazis going to party with if everyone is dead or crying in their welfare beer
    the mueller syndicate league illegally in provincial politics squating on my corporate freedom and income rights and personal human rights is a transportation company racket boss she is a big whore like nothing else. using the community and social services department in the most devious ways with queer mcguinty and his wap cartel carlita tramp. mueller dog who muscled fbi boss rights is no decent guy to be in charge of federal policing. you ugly criminal pig.niggers racket partner queer dog pimp pedo trafficker pig.german jew swedish german jew which brand of ugly con faco are you. so how much different kinds of drugs did you transport around while pretending you are in charge of enforcing law and justice from america and then with your slut daughter in ontario. clinton is a house(etc.) movers group of long semi van trucker company owner if you can fathom what that may mean. that's how clinton is linked to me in slime climbing into the president's chair.clinton is sort of or maybe exactly who they discuss romney as. him being his business broker partner. so again who would that make julian assange be in additional review of what i previously posted and which i guess you screened out criminally. though sometimes they ship arms baggage from government munitions to .......
    recall story release of truckers who have atom bomb weapons now. factor in the mulroney conspiracy that couldn't seem to lock him up permanently. supposedly those were german arms dealers with a blonde sleaze brokering for them and putting billions in mulroney spending money accounts but in sweden o
    well faco dog panetta terrorist you think you are smart in editing my important complete postings lists or blocs. so what does that make you panetta but ten million noriega's and worse. with mueller and clinton and oblob man who so perverse street crook and the harper barfer dog facos. panetta is a screwball. but he is in charge of the secretary of defence office. is that just a matchbox house compared to the meullers and clintons, oblobs and the rest. multonry was also married to kim campbell for some secret months on a major veranda – campbell having been mulroney's short come lover in charge of the military defence department of cantada.
    mulroney is a trucker as well, clinton movers uses the name hinton (hint hint crook joke stuff but it is clinton's business and he regularly does get deposits from that business. they changed the name when they wanted to move into politics.
    hilary is just a b.a in arts.graduate. it is a useless degree.
    kim campbell is a child care with criminalized involvement conversion worker.
    that itching picky stuff is also from developing sensitivity allergy to the antibacterial dish soap. i am not supposed to use any soap in fact. so salt water, or baking soda water is all that can be used. i have to also test how much reaction is diabetic/pancreas infection related. some sensitivity of the skin is related to damaged organs. mind you skin tissues are organ parts of the human system too. salt water doesn't leave a bathtub dirt ring either like the bubble baths. allergy medicine didn't releive that kind of reaction. it is part disease infection involved. maybe killing most bacteria with anti bacteria strong dish soap type unleashes a certain other type of chain reaction itching viral skin disease. it feels like i got attacked by worms suddenly in some body regions. only salt or soda baths gives immediate healing releif. it feels creepy and makes me disgusted for some time and i can't be bothered going anywhere and can't get any rest either.in fact also soap is made from fat type ingredients and that is diseased to begin with. some aren't but others are. you are washing in a grease type product that makes suds and foam from an additive group. the lye stuff of the first soap made in the home, but it is the basis for most soaps. soda or salt in the water – hot or warm or cold and scrubbing does remove dirt well and dead skin cells and leaves clean softer skin. bubble soap was only good for keep the ring of dirt from forming on the bathtub sides and making it necessary to clean the tub thoroughly after each bath with comet which is too much unnecessary cleaning. that needs to be done maybe once or twice a week. toilets once every two days or every day depending how many use it. those fancy perfume bubble baths breed groin diseases too. you will never get rid of vaginitis and jock itch and those others. soda or salt in the bath water also removes with scrubbing those darkened liver spots or patches. occassionally a milk bath by adding drinking milk to water is a good cosmetic/therapuetic skin treatment to help rejuvenate skin and make it strong but not rough. and it is relaxing. it is the real relaxation bath not those others of bubbles and oils and fragrances garbage. sometimes adding cucumber slices makes more therapy improvements, just slice a regular cucumber up with the milk into the nice slightly hot bath water then later cool bath water. cucumber slices on the eyes isn't the only use for that homeopathic treatment for relaxing organs. you can try cammomile tea too sometimes. it is also a softener. sorry you soap and bath cosmetic product companies you have to retool and transfer over to some other production work and marketing plan. do something else to make money damn you. Perfumes and colognes aren't bad to use but i don't like walking around like before when younger smelling like that stuff either. even if it smells good it has a love hate affect on people you go near and on yourself sometimes. it is better not to smell of anything. light perfume anti perspirant/deodorants such as sold by avon/ they are water based, there are many and very good. you can't smell them much and they do control perspiration better than those white stick ones for women ( or Men i guess). sprays are no good too those both cause clothing marks and damage. sometimes clear stick anti perspirant/deodorant is ok. i think a gel type also causes clothing marks and damage.
    there is a newer brand of vaseline lotion on the market that is called clinical therapy and isn't too costly and has a bit of hydrocortisone ingredients good for treating allergy reactions and it heals damages from allergic irritants such as rough leathery bumpy reddened skin on the neck and chest and such. it heals better than all the lathering i had to use hydrocortisone for four times a day. it isn't greasy film stuff either.
    Just like women, are also supposed to shave their underarms. Not shave anywhere else for hairiness but underarms can't be kept odor free and clothes sweat damaging and antiseptic conditioned if you don't shave the hair off. That step in hygiene isn't just for girls and women. It is also repulsive to have underarm hair showing such as in beach wear and in a tank top. it is not masculine and virile at all. Taking showers twice or more a day to control odor is not solution either. It isn't gay to do that part of hygiene. For showering if you don't want to take baths, fill a squeeze plastic bottle with baking soda or salt water solution and wash and scrub and then shower after for refreshing affects of shower pressure water. i know many don't like baths at all.
    Having smells of flowers, or herbals or other perfume smells isn't natural or desirable because you aren't a flower or plant. also you aren't salami and stuff like that that after cooking the wrong way you end up smelling like cooking odors. i bake chicken more now. Frying requires deep pot frying covered and better with an exhaust fan. and not high heat either to avoid getting smelly vapors into your hair. After a big cooking session you are supposed to take a bath anyway.
    and wash hair. food chain cooks have those problems often with serving hamburgers and others. Cooking lot of eggs and bacon for breakfast gets bad food odors on you also. restaurants do have big exhaust systems that draw out cooking odor vapors but there still is too much and the cooks and other kitchen staff can be contaminated by odors.
    If hair is kept up in a clip or tied totally back and in a kind of bun or net there won't be hair fallout. in fact even waitress and barmaids are supposed to keep hair properly contained and it isn't just for the kitchen staff. same with the grocery store staff or food manufacturing staff. It is an old health department rule that wasn't fully applied and enforced. Cooking in the home demands the same rules. a few persons now and then don't have any hair fallout but most have that problem. nursing and home care also needs to comply or adhere to those rules. and child care or day care facilities. otherwise the hair has to be fairly short around ear lobe level or shorter. more fancier style nets for hair need to be manufactured so that they attractively keep hair encased and under control. there are hardly any but maybe two and they are bad ones. some with decorative patterning and add on embellishments or flowerettes or color accenting and such are good. different net covering design techniques also should be incorporated. usually their are flimsy or they look like ocean fishing nets. i mean i am not going out to catch tuna fish or sharks or lobsters. with my head stuck in the water. they have to be for male or female that have more hair than usual for those work environments. Also too you should net or clip hair if you work anywhere cause you get it caught in machinery or it blocks vision in the case of many styles. A hard hat and safety goggles are useless if your hair is all over. Hair that drops into artwork in the case of design houses isn't any good either. If you are doing jobs or crafts like ceramics or pottery and those kinds of accidents happen at any stage you got damaged work efforts. Even if you are a florist, and a hair falls into the design work and you don't notice it gets wrapped into the flower and it makes a bad impression. certain hair net designing allows for the hair style to hang loose if there isn't too much a length to it. It is a needed product for almost every area. It is combination of textiles and crafts production.
    More cooking pots and pans also need to be made with special odor screening lids not full cover lids. certain ones have a vapor vent in them but i haven't tested them for odor and grease filtering. To adapt a lid grouping already purchase a special lift and seal attachment can be made to incorporate an odor venting feature. that is so we don't have to throw out all our pots and pans lids. no patenting ownership allowed on these. or on others of mine which i don't want you to have without paying me. these are open market – hair netting and lid for cooking improvements. and corrective product development of hygiene products. Some of this mfg. production is workable as a cottage industry, in other words out of homes or smaller facilities, such as home workshop garage because some know how to make metal designs or similar material usage products. shop supply building home stores, and fabric and craft stores for resource materials and ideas. then volume buying from those usually gets a better price. then just bag them different ways and put a computer designed or copier produced label. Bigger production areas would get into mass run offs using molds and assembly line production for faster bigger numbers of product peices. But that doesn't cancel out the smaller initiative as equally successful. Design approach is everything. People spend effort for extra money and ways to stay busy just doing baking type work – pies or bread loafs that they supply a bakery or two with or certain restaurants, or quilts or canvas paintings, or custom furniture pieces, which are part of cottage industry business. if i didn't clearly give you free market information product and service work then you have no right to my assets use. some matters i don't mind getting no payment for. but most other labor of mine needs payment to me. Demolition of what i wanted done on those dirty game extortion developments are yours to do. they are very important to do too. you are asking how can i do that – it's a new building – my life is new too but you made a mess of it pushing that stuff like that . and on so many others and on so much bomb effort crime property different places. i just still see junk effort in those constantly.
    better designs in bird cage water feeders are needed too, that aren't super expensive, stain resistant and have thermal features. different ones to fit different cage bar widths and thicknesses and ones the bird won't fall in while trying to drink. one i buy regularly has a spook problem to it and even though there is an opening all the time no matter which way you turn the cylinder in the feeder base at some points the water just doesn't flow out and i lost a valuable finch paradise bird because of it and i am still angry.i have to keep checking them. until i figure out better supplies for that purpose.
    sugarless natural ice cream making is a good smaller operation work project. some already know how to make home made ice cream. some smaller farm operations are good for this diversification product production. it is a good compatible plan whether the farmer raises dairy cattle or not and markets milk. no sorbet isn't sugarless ice cream. i mean it is sugarless often but it isn't the natural sugarless ice cream with the same texture and other quality characteristics as regular ice cream but with no sugar added and none of those artificial sweeteners as aspertame and whatever. hairdressing and hairstyling capes made as cottage industry is also a good product because they don't let you buy those and there aren't many in this area to choose from at the hair salon supply wholesalers. good for dye time or just washing hair when not showering or styling so loose hair doesn't get on clothes. they can be plastic or those fabrics similar to plastic/vinyl non static material. properly design dressed with artistic finishes and they sell really well. i hate using towel materials on my shoulders and neck for hair treatment times. there also aren't enough variated ballet type slip on slippers. and some flimsy simple types are too expensive. if they are going to charge bigger prices they have to be worth the product input features expensing. some make you slip and fall on certain flooring so those are useless too. i too need attachment features to shoes that prevent slipping and falling except i haven't worked out the material and design combination available to fashion such an important product safety correction invention. now most shoes by most people are bought new and there is always a fitting problem to them. they fit in the store perfectly it seems each time you go to buy a new shoe style pair, then you go home and work and you wear them sometimes not longer than twelve hours and they start pinching the back achilles heal or the side somewhere of your heel or on the toes side or some parts of the top toe knuckles here or there. and once they are worn and show scuff marks from wearing on the bottom of the shoes you can't return them. one pair of sandals i bought and paid good money for had a bad heel lift compared to instep of the sole and the opening in the toe creating failed walking dynamics (there is another terminology group to describe that failed technical engineering design) and before going too far walking my foot was half on the sidewalk. it wasn't because of the heel size and height because i have worn all kinds of those with no such problem. i tried to adjust straps and such but it was useless and they wouldn't take them back and give me a refund.
    certain other cheaper shoes that were comfortable and i bought two pairs always got peirced with thumb tacks in different places i went walking. i thought the shoe was nailed together somewhere wrong until i checked the bottom of the one shoe, this after causing a sore in my foot sole. so i had to quit wearing those.two other pairs well made in first analysis because they started hurting and got tight for no reason, i just wore as flip flp shoes by stepping down on the back of the shoes but doing this wasn't good walking safety and i often tripped almost down and fell with the second faulty pair i had purchased. that was another waisted effort. some shoes seem perfect and comfortable but some aspect of the engineering makes you constantly trip up on small cracks and stones even and i fell many times on those types of shoe styles and they didn't have bad high fashion heels either. if you have a lot of those problems, which some people older disabled ones think is because they are sick some way, try changing your shoe style. some are also too heavy to lift and move feet in an easy natural gait. i don't like wearing sports running shoes because they always smell bad, they are no good for foot aeration, especially if you got walking in wet weather or muddy conditions or snowy type conditions with them, causing fungus diseases like athletes foot that is contagious everywhere and people use public showers in sports places and work places and schools and recreation places as well as just in a multi member home. no there are no right type of socks to offset those problems. some squeek too at some points or under some environment conditions. and it doesn't guarantee anything that you paid over l00.00 a pair even. some are too heavy with too much shoe material to them and not comfortable and too clumsy fitting but you are supposed to do active movement as in sports or running with them; there is no sense to them for uniform use. when i can't find a good pair i have to pull out an old pair that was proven to be pretty good to wear and have them repaired – new heels and such until i find something new. good winter boots i buy also cause problems if there is a side zipper – it always breaks and my legs aren't big or anything like that to cause stress on zipper movement. after fixing zippers for about 25.00 they break again or the other foot one breaks. usually i don't bother throw them in the closet and look for something else sometimes sacrificing dress boot quality to not have zippers and look kind of too casual and bummy – floppy fit and on and on.i know those who bought expensive custom fit and designed boot or shoe types and for over three hundred dollars a pair and they still had pain from walking in them. they weren't always persons with oddly shaped and bone deformed foot problems. some go on fooling the purchaser that their foot is two wide and they have a high instep and other phoney diversion of blame talk.
    Previous problem subject – hair dyeing, allergy solving and cost solving for home dyeing.
    It isn't necessary to use all the contents purchased for one dye job only. in a plastic small container, for example you can use those l.00 store measuring cups of the l cup measure, pour about 3/4 of an ounce or less 1/2 maybe then squeeze out about tsp. of tube color and blend with a used toothbrush or new one, and apply when it has changed to close color needs using the toothbrush, not heavily brushing lightly on gray areas and separating with fingers or brush and or brush to get roots in other strand scalp parts. dyeing all the hair isn't needed if it is just root gray and lost color to dye, some blending of dye application can be made throughout if desired during certain month's dye times. make sure you seal the tube and squeeze bottle tightly, which you shouldn't snip off the top off to pour some of that creme colorant out so it can be resealed to save the remainder for the next application. thus you don't need those touch up costly dye boxes nor that silly long brush. and it ends up a lot more inexpensive. no need ever to pour it all out through the combined squeeze plastic bottle and cover all the hair. it is just too much dye exposure thus creating too much reaction allergy damages. chinese stores have little boxes of powder dye which don't use a blender and you mix in a small container, but too small and it gets hard to work with but you use a toothbrush to apply but it is too strong as well and the small amounts did get used for my entire head of hair roots and all, but now i know i don't need to do that even. it was just touch up techniques needed same as i was doing for temporary touch ups using black eyelash mascara. i may still get some reaction allergy to contend with and i will update as to its severity. and as to the effectiveness of color taking to hair. they did steal my touch up invention(s)for which i was temporarily using mascara applicaion tube. but worse they made it as expensive as a full dye for all the head of hair. i hate those people.
    clairol which is one of the first and stole that touch up product invention. was originally a medical instrument manufacturer of a clairol involved doctor's family group perhaps with the wives doing those businesses. thus for that factory line and others i suspect intentional damage conspiracies to create medical troubles due to hair dyeing needs.
    i bought the garnier belle colour for my current experiment in solving hair dye health efficiency troubles and cost problems.
    If you move or are cleaning things up and trying to be more orderly or/and you can't get proper shelving and storage systems going. You can stack empty boxes different ways to make shelves, as i did recently in my kitchen which is fairly big with dinette or stack empty soft drink boxes or crates and those kinds of containers. boxes don't look bad at all if they are the right strength and shape/size. i am using my arrangement for organizing my easy access reference books and phone book and other similar data storage. You just open face forward and top to bottom stacking. you can start with one open face up and flat on floor for some filing then add from there different ways. I have to hunt for the best design and feature fit for the space i have and i am not in the mood now to shop for that. Similar storage filing can be done in the bedroom or other living space or for door entranceways for shoes. if delayed too much in permanent furniture purchase, just wallpaper or adhesive shelf paper decorate the boxes or paint them. sometimes done right that looks better than a solid furniture product.

    What America needs is a couple of bombed out cities to realize the effects of war. We have led a charmed life with all the wars he have fought in and nary a scratch except 9/11. I'm talking abt really getting bombed out. It took Europe too long to learn that war is hell. The Iranians are not to be fooled with.

    I'm glad we are leaving. The only reason we went there was to kick some Al Queda butt and get Bin Laden. The Taliban were just in our way. We killed most of Al Queda's leaders including Bin Laden and thousands of their friends including the Taliban. We did what we came to do and then some.

    They are about 1000 years behind the rest of the world in Afghanistan. Making then a 21st century democracy isn't going to happen. Time to get out. There is no such thing as winning a war in Afghanistan. There is nothing to win.

    Ok so i'm all for U.S. troops getting out of there. It's just a shame it took this long but at least they did what they went there to do for the most part in my eyes. They went in there and at least crippled the Taliban their crew for at least a little while. However the one thing i do not understand is the tactic of transferring or releasing some of their people from Guantanamo to Qatar. A sign of "good faith" more like a noob move. That just does not make too much sense to me but hey that's why i dont have their job.

    Say Ollie, if BLUNDERING DUBYA HAD NOT ATTACKED THE WRONG COUNTRY, COULD WE HAVE LEFT AFGHANISTAN A WHILE BACK ?
    .
    Yes Stan, DUBYA DARED US TO QUESTION HIS MOVE TO GET THE 'MAN IN THE HOLE' – according to the bumbler, THAT would have been un-gop like (or un-patriotic).

    With a total committment to defeating Bin Laden, Al Qaeda, and the Taliban IN AFGHANISTAN, WE WOULD HAVE HAD BIN LADEN ON A SCAFFOLD and 'MISSION ACCOMPLISHED' in less than a year.

    What DID we get, Ollie ?

    julian assange was hacking into the nortel/bell terminal to spy on me – he was hacking into my phone service and rights he was also in bed with hilary clinton. i called not long after that time period after hanging complaint signs outside my window in chinese neighborland on west windsor near the university. to tell the washington white house security people that hilary is a slut and bill clinton is a crook. can you relate to what that means in relation to also all the other data i have logged on my horrible plight. literally it is what the hell i stated. after they went into that lewinsky intern stuff only. and he never stopped crooking which means you were helping him crook and run off with my huge assets as well as in ass to suck up to the sky for both of them i beleive.
    Important technical intelligence discussion now to break from other matters and then i will return to give more detail.
    All the Bell telecom system is part of all the rest of the telephone telecom system. therefore it is controllable from one main terminal or grid center. If it weren't you wouldn't be able to make long distance phone calls from one big area to another such as from canada to france or to saudi arabia. It is the big secret to why it is a difficult task to protect privacy vs. why maybe it is the way things should be maybe. Even though there were competitors allowed such as rogers and primus and telus and those in the u.s. and the cogeco cable etc. they are still all on the bell wire network system of phone communications control which handles the internet connections and the television connections. now television had some separate control center companies who used there own transmission control towers, such as with the t.v. networks of abc. and nbs and such but they all went digital which means they all joined the telecom empire (up the organization) of bell/itt/at&t that's all digital really meant. the convertor boxes which allowed you to intercept them were jammed so they were no longer any good. When the telephone system was created and its needed transmitting wires constructed and installed with the hydro poles in parallel to them and also in parallel to them in underground wires they just kept linking up from the start up and on and on into different directions but staying on the same system. The same is the case for the Hydro transmission system and that is why hydro can be sabotaged from remote areas into areas you think are not controlled by the source cut off order office of technology control. They are both all linked to each other hydro to bell and then from each into different extension service systems of wiring into every area/city country. remember it is bell who had the inventor monopoly development right on phone systems and still has in fact.
    not saying they owned the invention or were the real inventors. The radio networks or bands i beleive are still separately controlled but remember they are on the hydro system when using plug in wall hydro. stay following the bouncing ball i am not offtrack or nonsense talking. Now you in your home or anywhere can be spy viewed and filmed through the hydro outlets via your light bulb fixtures. And it is proven because when i pointed that out in private conversation analysis they used it to make fibre optics. Because the filament in your light bulb fixtures is like a t.v. tube and can act as a transmitter electric eye. and that is why there are electric eyes very small that are sometimes planted in walls with special coating to not be noticed. In some fibre optics products they use them on lamps or toys that have those funny long plastic wire things stuck out of them and they change color from the electricity going through them. once not long ago the hydro bosses drew some veiled attention to the problem? when they reported that their staff was watching porn at work stations. Now i went one or two steps further in my suspicions to prove and then somehow get my complaints heard and fight all my sabotaged life and business problems. I told police detectives that they wired my head using x-rays and dyes while testing me for brain tumors and other matters and robotocized me. because i was moving weird like a robot being controlled. so that is even the more bizzarre invasionary assault problem i had to deal with thus connecting the nasa space power muscle people. But, i had to also dissect the influence of the holy ghost psychic power in relationships to that other power gamer group. it has been very difficult for me more than you know to work out all that i have been faced with. they did go on massive development and production to make all kinds of robot stuff for medicine auto factories toys etc. from that point too.
    correction update: obama and obrah together while being social workers and obrah doing some service too like that ? were stealing bras and girdles and underwear and other foundation garments from companies in chicago like Playtex corporation and wonderbra( and some others that who like to locate in that city/state) to sell as hot undergarments hot cross your heart bras, hot underwear and girdling stuff with the likes of the other stalkers harrassment robbing and related to julian assange wickka british clinton crimeans cec girling and ute lawrence and others who also had greek faco partners the ones who stole my london &company magazine rights repeatedly and other media and other invention business asset properties. cec is swedish but they may be either enemies murder connections of the swedish police or they are friends of theirs who are like those hooker poc involved member ones. to ask again who did bomb the swedish police plane after filling it with officers and setting them up to go to windsor area again. they crashed into the ocean. i was sort of media journalism school friends/acquaintences of theirs. answer clinton, answer british soldier crackpots answer london, ontario kluxes answer assange and sweden monarchy bums.answer israel, answer jordan monarchyenglish devil droner – i seem to remember weirdo jordanians sold us huge wall rug tapestries or art whatever.
    so anyway with that devil satanic davidian new building of cornerstoning gravers in that big box trash construction extortionist money of the christian fellowship which hare the gospel brotherhood or became that later. they have an islamic lebao group as well on the fuck east side of windsour, plus they built that satanic natzi blonde english camp expensive churneshee at the door of the newer windsor star printing warehouse but i went there and wrote on their sidewalk entrance murderers prostitutes rapists child pedos, sluts and other id trademarks of theirs, they being big crackhead members of those fag trustees in bankruptcy spies always chasing to fuck my life up after hustling more fraud money and business to own and share with other crackheads that only have satan saviours jesus and abraham andmoses and all those other phoney slut actors and plagiarists and linked also to the frauded design and money fraud funded crystal cathedral in californicationi a oh and geurgis jaffer are obuma pedo nigger club sluts in with harper barfer and part of the cec gerling and ute german zimmerman and schwartsnigger carter syndicated peanut poisoners, no peanut farmers,ute married to lawrence kid the father a old idiot queers counsel messing up things from a job as legal aid boss then to run the faggy call hooker center offices of the law society of upper canada. why is the world more democratic with your type of elected whore crook black market bosses who each muscle in on my wind and money different ways to be main bosses most of the them and set up shop with more gangsters right in the main executive offices of government. i can't beleive i had to keep digging and digging up facts linked to all sorts of body bagging and rapester queerster pedo shit and it just stinks more and more and you just keep going back to do more and more stink in stead of turning yourselves in and letting straight working hands run things. no matter which option chosen to replace then next one is just another kind of criminal filth doing the same filth.
    there is no money in facebook and those internet site communication gatherings. nobody pays money to use them, the servers don't pay them to use them either in any direct way. they are just name gatherers and brainpickers to find people to use and own more property of which is what zion's busy themselves with – getting names of all kinds to make crime on in rebuke of they not being criminally revered and feared so they can roost with their british dog partners who get to keep their crown chairs. get the fuck out of office already for the Real God's sake. not your deviil cunt dick god's sake. so that money related to you pretending zuckerberg is holy grail (but devil's holy hell graillers)and is getting 30 some billion explain what the hell you are discussing each time what is it you are talking about and where is that money connected to my valuables and worth going and into whose fag treasury nigger banks. that's about the 20th time or more. what is it you are doing exactly. are you moving real money accounting around or is it all pretend shit to annoy me.bogus cash maybe bogus counterfeit bills and such ...???????????????????????????????????????????

    The end of the combat mission in Afghanistan doesn't mean that the troops are gone, nor that the troops are necessarily any different. There are Troops, and they are designated as "combat" or "advise and assist" based on what campaign promises need to be fulfilled. People argued that Iraq was almost done when OIF transitioned to OND...this will be no different. Troops will still be fighting in Afghanistan in 2014.

    she and the others are criminal child stalkers and any time new ones we meet are known through hers spy bugs they and their medical pervert cartel and their telecome spy rape queer pushing rapesters chase to use them in conjunction with constantly rape using me for filth trafficking like i am just a slut thing to make fun and money worship of.

    my marie phoney sister-in-law who plots with her has a hooker native french step sister who pretended she was raped and joined a crook older guy to shack up with and do dirt in the windsor star as well on me. they played a con act on my brother john over my reporting her daughter at her early days as customs officer for waving crooks of drug dealer involvement through the border, her step uncle she later told me or rather her step brother wilfred was involved in some drug dealing but there were others plus there was the other trafficking to extort my corporate file portolio and identities registered. so they made it look like i was causing my stupid ass neice trouble so to make my brother fight with me like i was in the wrong. i am very psychic and was heavily investigating with police all kinds of corruption no i wasn't in the wrong to keep my stupid neice out of trouble not knowing then that she was dating a dirty italian biker named rocco. and then after my brother's murder the bikers went to own his little daughter who was 11 approx and a little later she was made to live with an old guy and they pimp used her on the internet as if who she was selling sex. which she wasn't.
    what was your ulterior motives all of you faco party members????? you would dump john as anything important related to his birthday and force control of my corporation etc. as your slut aunts for good and you marie with your stupid jew character trained husband an idiot brother of mine so many times aggressing on my rights for your ugly fat ass to be something. they play different plotted dog games together to make trouble on certain people like the one the bazi's involved themselves in with scheider and hochbag and schtyrbra crescent etc. i didn't really have that clear a picture of my slut aunt's game but i was sure of evidence at that address. i caught all kinds of crook gaming there that pointed to them and their medical cartel and telecom spy rape links. my aunt is the dick head pervert group setting things up to make my brothers lose their penis and other organs with sorensen and elsdon and a number of other crooks who had also set up my brother john in fear of being castrated as if he had prostate involved cancer in addition to repeat queer gang harrassment and slavery theft crime using him. because you wanted to also pimp and queer sell his children two baby girls and two little boys under 8 at time of his death. i have so much more to log of medical cartel perversion engagement terrorism on us and on the rest of the unsuspecting non really involved in anything fighting like that patient citizenry population. with proven forensic comparisons in veterinary practice crime.
    when vet idiot tavecic (sp.)and his oriental partner girl neutered my ear-ly male jesus savior only son cat, and torture treatment involved because of bad care policies after surgery as well. he incisioned the testicles to remove the sperm sacs, where male sperm is similarly located for humans, in the process removing most of the testicles and leaving some small parts that shrink more but are still evident as recognizable parts of what the organs were. but he criminally removed the penis, i still have to verify that it was totally not necessary and would still be usable by the cat in its sexual lovemaking with a female cat. i actually am sure it would so he wanted just to upset abuse my cat. it was too upset for a long time after. it is a cat but it is the same with animal cruelty and damage as with humans. compare breast mastectomy and other in women's health damages. its traumatic problems especially when you suspect it is just criminal show game and abuse and lie involved. now my cat when he does have lovemaking with his trilogy female cat which i had to spayed like it or not because i couldn't figure out how to unravel that related problem in the female. he does still produce seeman matter which is somewhat thicker not watery same as with human seeman. it is important stupid because it links to infertility sperm banks dirty vasectomies crimes abuse extortion by speculating women on men about stealing money for children birthed and such. it is important more than you know, and also mass castration zionist movement against all kinds of men by all kinds of zionist worship foolery sadistic enjoyment doctors and their societies.
    In vasectomies to block sperm from making seeman fluid entry (?) through the man's sex organ part they just enter the penis cavity and do some cutting there and they don't remove the testicles almost totally to get the sperm sacs closed after cleaning them. and that is why many men still make women pregnant after vasectomies as birth control on the men's part instead of the woman's part of medical birth control methods. (prostate phoney cancer diagnostics and drastic followup treatments and damages are also related too much to this forensic study research of mine)stay with what i am trying to explain and prove clearly. slut lebao whore again stop calling my relatives to tell them to damage me in different ways stop you slut stop calling them and calling them hackta garbage stop you fucking slut. you aren't a closer relative of ours but i will get your name and those others with you soon you fucking slut. don't any of you make any calls. i am cutting all your phones off soon and going to make you pay phone bills anyway.in some cases three times the major bill you may have had. you shroheet munyookeen. you queers stop making queer background secrecy orders through others too and also some of you queers in high office. i am not a lebao dog worship zion british faco member i am the ancient phoenician real lebanon old rights country empirical holy leader initial and only one. you fuck yourselves again. stop stealing my words to use against me. fuck yourselves chinko nigger club fuck yourselves.faco wappo trash. fuck yourselves.you are all going to get shot in the mouth for making up lies about relations with me and crap like that in addition to extortion owning my inventions, other kinds of ideas, and rape racketeering in different ways against me. i will fix all you. better pick out your coffins fast.
    that queer/transgender phoney cripple game actorand hospital kiddie crime pare group that is part of them and running crime for them in vatican bishopric diocese and on college boards is also in allstate insurance crime groups with their roxanne pare relative – i had contacts with allstate about some matters some years ago, can't recall it exactly. their use of my it name claim links to crook queer muscle money rights of mine from new york and other places and in windsor.
    the other part linking to plot owning my oldest brother, plots from old country birth areas.
    they plotted he could be the holy grail kid and made up that maronite madonna trekking celebration they have every year some big big due on May lst which is also my brother masens birthday but the holy mary virgin celebration day under vatican orders. (remember my brother john's birthday is december 26th)i am explaining how they twist things different ways to fuck things up from being accurately recorded respected and the wealth etc. being where it is legitimately supposed to be. all in the family? how could it be that way. i have no one in my family but pets and the holy ghost. i still try to be family with who i am supposed to be family with but there seems to be no way to save that. so i will keep fighting and eventually i will put all of you on your knees and no money except a bit of food and shelter and i mean everyone. maybe too i should fuck everybody up too so they can't have a family either. and no pets either because you are guilty of animal cruelty and inhumane torture cruelty so definitely you can't have pets.

        In case you’re in america, you could have seen in the news or if pehraps anyone continue with the marketplace, the buying price of gold and silver coins are getting up. The reason for this can be primarily as the worth of the particular United states dollar is certainly going lower, even though some 4 decades proceed, the particular United states papers money was backed by tough resources just like gold and silver coins.

        Furthermore, i believe that memhtoeliosa is a unusual form of most cancers that is typically found in all those previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous cells form from the mesothelium, which is a protecting lining that covers the majority of the body's bodily organs. These cells generally form in the lining with the lungs, abdominal area, or the sac which actually encircles one's heart. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

        I beg to differ. Todd knows EXACTLY what he's writing about... but it doesn't make it in the least bit true.

        I spend too much of my day reading this sort of anti-Democrat banter, and I don't know... I'm noticing that easily 90% of it is "Just wait until the dictator does THIS, or THAT, or you know ...wait until he shows his REAL INTENTS! This sort of nonsense, and I'm even going to address the Anti-Christ gibberish. It reminds me of the Salem witch hunts, really. OK there are a lot of ignorant people out there, I get that. And the internet gives them broadcast privileges. Fine...but are they really effecting the outcome of the next general election with this nonsense?

  41. No Substitue For Victory

    The fight in Afghanistan has went on for far too long. However, to out-right state that by 2013 we will no longer be conducting combat missions will enhearten our enemy; pulling out in 2014 will only bring destruction to a nation that we have not only invested time and money into, but blood, sweat, and tears. Anything less than total annihilation of our enemies will equate to utter defeat for us. For us to pull out now will provide another safehaven for terror-terror that will continued to be directed towards us from across the sea. Another disaster like 9/11 will undoubtedly ensue. Our enemy must be erased from the memory of mankind, and only the sweat and blood of the American soldier can provide this insurance.

  47. Taking Action

    While Romney is blowing it out his rear end with no concrete ideas on how to save our economy from the collapse brought on by Bush's two wars and irresponsible tax breaks for the rich, in order to get elected so he can protect his 14% tax rate, Obama is quietly taking the action needed to put us back on track. Military spending brought about the collapse of the Soviet Union. We came very close to following in their path.

    listen the reason we are pulling out our troops in many countries is because of the threat of Iran. Because they could attack our country soon. And if they do I hope Obama does something right and shows the world what happens if you attack the USA. An example Japan will they attack US again why we took there military away and blew them up because our president did not care about japans people more than Americas people.
