More than one-hundred pages of newly released documents from the US's top intelligence branch are providing the clearest look yet at the CIA's decision to destroy videotapes of detainee interrogation. The new documents show that Porter Goss, the then CIA chief, agreed with the decision to destroy the tapes, though they show he did not know of the destruction until after it occurred. They also reveal that almost immediately after the destruction, CIA officials worried they had done something wrong, if not illegal. Patty Culhane reports (16 April 2010).

The United States military came out and said that US oil surplus production will dry up by 2015. Webster Tarpley says that the United States joint command US general James Mattis is behind the statement and is using oil as a weapon against China. The idea is to get the price of a barrel of oil up as a scare tactic.

April 16, 2010 — Chicago - A Streamwood police officer's own dashboard camera has proven to be his downfall.
Officer James Mandarino is facing charges of aggravated battery and official misconduct after he was caught on video beating an unarmed motorist.
The video, recorded March 28 after a traffic stop, shows Mandarino getting out of his squad car with his gun drawn, and approaching an SUV driven by 28 year old Ronald Bell of Streamwood.
Bell is seen with his hands up for about a minute and a half before Mandorino orders and then pulls him to the ground. The video shows Mandorino beating Bell with his baton 15 times in 13 seconds.
All the while, Bell is trying to protect himself.
He was beaten on the head, back and arms and suffered a concussion and required seven stitches to close a gash on his right ear.
Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez announced the charges Thursday after a two week investigation.
"The conduct displayed on the video by this officer is not only disturbing, it's outrageous and it's unacceptable," Alvarez said.
"Every law enforcement officer holds his or her powers through the public trust and this officer's senseless act of rage against an unarmed motorist constitutes an offensive violation of that trust."
Mandorino posted bond and was released after court. The 15-year veteran with the Streamwood police has been relieved of his duties and put on paid administrative leave according to the department. As he left court reporters peppered him with questions.
"I'm not a le to make any statement at this time," Mandarino said, "my attorney advised me not to make any statements without him being present."
It was the Streamwood police who discovered the video, and reported it to the State's Attorney's office within 24 hours of the incident.
Bell was originally stopped, prosecutors said, after the officer heard him squeal his tires. He was charged with DUI and other offenses, but prosecutors have dropped all charges.
Prosecutors say what's not seen on tape is something that could lead to additional charges. Before the beating, they say Mandorino tazered a passenger in Bell's vehicle twice.

April 16, 2010 — The trail of disruption to travelers, caused by the colossal ash cloud from the erupting volcano in Iceland is growing. Millions of air passengers across six continents have been affected. The airspace in most of Northern Europe has been closed and the ash cloud is said to be approaching Moscow.
Jason Bermas’ highly anticipated documentary Invisible Empire exposes the New World Order in their own words, by painstakingly showing how the elite have not only conspired to create a dictatorial global government in private, but have publicly stated their agenda hundreds of times in public.
By highlighting the words of people like Paul Wolfowitz, Michael Mullen, David Cameron, Gordon Brown and many many others, Invisible Empire dispenses with the conjecture and sticks to the cold hard facts. This movie is guaranteed to wake up even the most ardent skeptic to the manifestly provable acceleration towards an authoritarian planetary regime that intends to control and regulate every aspect of our existence.
Invisible Empire is all conspiracy and no theory – proving beyond doubt how the elite have openly conspired to insidiously rule the globe via the engines of the CFR, the United Nations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg group.
The film traces the lineage of the evolution of global governance from Samuel Zane Batten’s 1919 manifesto New World Order, through to Hitler’s vision of a 1000 year Reich, to the modern incarnation of the conspiracy which has its roots in the evil deeds of people like George H. W. Bush, David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger.
Invisible Empire catalogues the primary criminal enterprises through which the agenda is financed, operated and advanced – government controlled drug-running, false flag terror, banking scams, and state sponsored assassination.
The most contemporary branch of the agenda to enforce neo-feudalism and top-down communitarianism, in total hostility to the notion of true freedom and individuality – the phony environmentalist movement – which is driven by the global warming fraud, is also blown wide open.
Invisible Empire also delves into the deepest and darkest offshoots of the wicked plan for global enslavement, including the move towards a microchipped population, prostitution rings run by and for the elite, as well as the bizarre occult practices power brokers embrace as part of their religion of power and domination.
Invisible Empire will be more than just a film– it is the culmination of years of research by Jason Bermas into the inner-workings and most revealing public statements by the New World Order and the most trusted stewards of their dark vision. Invisible Empire promises to unveil the long-term agenda for world control, just as Fabled Enemies and Loose Change Final Cut forever stripped away the facade of the official story of 9/11 and exposed the dark truth that lies behind.
