Dear Readers,

More than ever, Global Research needs your support. Our task as an independent media is to “Battle the Lie”.

“Lying” in mainstream journalism has become the “new normal”: mainstream journalists are pressured to comply. Some journalists refuse.

Lies, distortions and omissions are part of a multibillion dollar propaganda operation which sustains the “war narrative”.

While “Truth” is a powerful instrument, “the Lie” is generously funded by the lobby groups and corporate charities. And that is why we need the support of our readers.

When the Lie becomes the Truth, there is no turning backwards. 

Support Global Research.

By Stephen Lendman, May 24, 2018

Yulia, and perhaps Sergey ahead, are only allowed to publicly say what UK authorities permit – Britain scripting her remarks, letting her say only what her captors permit.

For US Congress, Running a Torture Prison Is a Good Career Move

By Philip Giraldi, May 24, 2018

Accurate information on Haspel is hard to come by. Access to a top secret memo reportedly prepared by Committee Democrats concerning her possibly illegal activities has been restricted even among Senators. Nevertheless, as the first woman to become head of the Agency one might reasonably say that Haspel has certainly broken through several glass ceilings to obtain her new position.

Washington’s Sabotage of Russian Diplomacy. Putin’s Peace Efforts Are Coming to Naught

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, May 24, 2018

In the interest of peace Putin has avoided responding to US and Israeli provocations in Syria. Putin went so far as to invite Netanyahu to Russia for the celebration of Russia’s victory over Germany in World War II.  Netanyahu accepted, but showed Putin who is boss by ordering illegal Israeli military attacks on Syrian army positions just prior to his departure for Russia.
