An anti-terrorism march in Paris honoring victims of the Charlie Hebdo attacks didn’t register at the White House as something to scramble President Barack Obama’s or Vice President Joe Biden’s schedule to attend. This week’s royal succession in Saudi Arabia got the opposite treatment: White House aides upended plans for both to show as much respect to the new Saudi king as they could.
The difference between the Riyadh and Paris decisions, White House aides explained Saturday, was that they knew in advance that the condolence call for King Abdullah would draw global leaders. By contrast, aides were taken by surprise when 44 heads of state turned up to lock arms amid “Je Suis Charlie” placards on just two days’ notice—so surprised that they were forced to apologize.
It may seem unseemly to some that Obama is rushing to pay his respects to a feudal monarchy while failing to honor innocent victims of terrorism. But there’s more at stake in this visit than appearances.
U.S. officials are eager to establish a working relationship with the new Saudi king as soon as possible amid unrest that threatens both countries: Islamic State of Syria in the Levant (ISIL) has beheaded Americans and controls large amounts of territory in neighboring Syria. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has resurged in another Saudi neighbor, Yemen, as rival militias have seized the country’s capital and deposed the U.S.-friendly president. And with his administration deep in nuclear negotiations with Iran, Obama needs to reassure Saudi leaders uneasy over the United States’ rapprochment with its geopolitical and religious rival.
King Abdullah’s funeral was Friday, and Biden’s office swiftly announced that he’d lead the American delegation to pay respects during the traditional Saudi mourning period on Tuesday. But late Friday, as White House aides made final arrangements for Obama’s departure for India, they started reworking the plans to add Riyadh — apparently to avoid the optics of the president flying past Saudi Arabia as other leaders converged. Instead, Obama and the first lady will cut short their three-day visit to India, canceling a side trip to see the Taj Mahal, to depart for Saudi Arabia. They’re expected to be on the ground for just a few hours.
Another reason Obama replaced Biden was logistics: The White House avoids having Obama and Biden out of the country simultaneously.
“We determined that the window when the vice president would be on the ground in Riyadh coincided with the president’s departure from India,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, announcing the change-up early Saturday.
They have come close to doing that in the past. In March 2013, Biden was returning from Pope Francis’ installation in Rome as Obama was departing for a long scheduled trip to Israel. Both schedules got pushed so there was only about 20 minutes between Air Force One taking off and Air Force Two landing. Earnest was adamant that posed no question about who was in charge of the country: “The fact remains that President Obama is president of the United States everywhere he goes. Vice President Biden is vice president of the United States everywhere he goes.”
Security was also a key difference between a trip to Paris or a trip to Riyadh. Attending the Paris march would have required putting Obama out in the open air in a way that the Secret Service never likes. By contrast, Obama will visit the new monarch, King Salman, in a closed room of a remote and secure palace. But perhaps the most important factor was that Obama was already going to be near the Middle East. The criticism for skipping Paris, aides insist, was not a driving factor.
Obama’s last trip to Riyadh took place in March following a week of meetings in Europe with NATO allies and a visit to Pope Francis. It was not only a courtesy call; there was also a sense that Abdullah was fading, and Obama went in part to say farewell.
“The closeness and strength of the partnership between our two countries is part of Abdullah’s legacy,” Obama said in a statement last week.
The U.S.-Saudi relationship has been strained under Obama, particularly after the president chose not to strike Syria for its use of chemical weapons against civilians in 2013—leaving Saudi leaders doubting Obama’s resolve and his commitment to Middle East security.
The relationship has since improved, thanks to close cooperation between the countries against ISIS. But the Obama administration remains conflicted about the desert kingdom. On the one hand, the Saudis provide crucial counterterrorism assistance and have managed to preserve stability at home despite the Arab Spring’s regional upheavals. Their vast oil reserves also give them huge and sometimes very helpful influence over global energy markets: the kingdom’s willingness to keep pumping crude amid falling oil prices has hammered the Russia and Iran’s oil-dependent economies, much to Washington’s delight. But the Saudi government is also politically repressive and often cited for severe human rights abuses. The country’s strict religious conservatism, which it also promotes abroad, bars women from most workplaces and from driving cars; women often can’t leave their home without a male escort.
The Obama administration has long been conflicted how close a relationship it wants with Saudi leaders. On the one hand, they are crucial allies in combating Islamic extremism, not to mention key suppliers of oil to world markets. Saudi Arabia has remained insulated from the Arab Spring, providing stability in an unstable part of the world. But the kingdom continues to be criticized for human rights abuses and oppressing women — who famously are not allowed to drive and need male escorts most of the time they leave the house — which can make for some uncomfortable diplomacy.
“You’re always operating in a place where you can’t stand anything they do,” said one former Clinton administration official. Hillary Clinton herself, Obama’s first secretary of state, has told associates of her discomfort working closely with a country so hostile to women’s rights.
Whether Salman, who is believed to be in ill health, can continue to provide stability remains to be seen; for now, Western officials have broadly welcomed the “swift succession,” said a senior adviser to one Western president.
Meanwhile, the White House is keeping an eye on the second in line to the throne, 55-year-old Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the kingdom’s former counterterrorism chief and the first potential monarch of his generation — a grandson of the Saudi founder instead of a son. With a pro-Western mentality and frequent meetings in Washington with Obama’s homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco and others, presidential advisers see him as “our guy.”
Whether bin Nayef will join Salman in the room with Obama is still being worked out. But he’s expected to be part of meetings in Riyadh that will also include a number of top American officials, including National Security Adviser Susan Rice and soon-to-depart counselor to the president John Podesta, who accompanied the president to India.
As for Obama, there was some speculation in France and Washington this past week that he might add a brief stop in Paris to smooth any ruffled feathers and pay his respects to the Charlie Hebdo victims. At least so far, that’s not on the revised schedule.

A British medical student who lived with and gained the trust of Islamic State militants has news for Americans: They’re planning a bigger splash than merely beheading kidnap victims.
“They are full of hate. You can see fire in their eye,” Ahmad Rashidi told NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel on Sunday’s “Meet the Press.” “If you smell like European, they are going to kill you.”
Rashidi said his odyssey began when, at the request of a friend, he traveled from London to Syria in search of the friend’s twin teenage daughters, who had left home to become terrorists’ brides.
Against all odds, Rashidi said, he located one of the girls in the small city of Manbij in northern Iraq. But before he could rescue the girl, he was taken prisoner and tortured, accused of being a spy and a journalist.
“In the first one week, two weeks, it was brutal,” Rashidi told Engel.
Eventually, though, Rashidi, a first-year medical student, said he gained the jihadists’ trust by claiming he was a physician who wanted to join their cause.
He was soon permitted to roam freely through Islamic State facilities, and even log on to one of its computers. That’s how he learned the terrorists aren’t as disconnected from the rest of the world as he’d thought.
Rather than worry about the U.S. bombing campaign, Rashidi said, Islamic State is “happy about it,” because the attention has elevated the group’s status to that of al-Qaida.
“They want to be more better than al-Qaida,” he said. “They want to do something more better than the World Trade Center.”
Rashini was cleared by an Islamic State court on condition he remain in Syria to work for the cause. Instead, he slipped across the border into Turkey.
A group calling itself “Official Cyber Caliphate” said it hacked on Monday the official website of national carrier Malaysia Airlines
(Reuters) – A group calling itself “Official Cyber Caliphate” said it hacked on Monday the official website of national carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS), but the airline said its data servers remained intact and passenger bookings were not affected.
The website, http://www.malaysiaairlines.com, showed a photograph of a lizard in a top hat, monocle and tuxedo, surrounded by the messages ‘404 – Plane Not Found’ and ‘Hacked by Lizard Squad – Official Cyber Caliphate’. A rap song could be heard.
In a statement, MAS said the website was not hacked, but that users were redirected to a hacker website. It said the official site would be back up within 22 hours.
“Malaysia Airlines assures customers and clients that its website was not hacked and this temporary glitch does not affect their bookings and that user data remains secured,” it said.
Some media reports said the hacked website had earlier carried the words “ISIS will prevail” but the slogan could no longer be seen. ISIS is the acronym of the militant Islamic State group that has proclaimed a caliphate after seizing territory in Iraq and Syria.
Malaysia Airlines lost two flights last year. Flight MH370 disappeared last March with 239 passengers and crew on board and Flight MH17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine on July 17, killing all 298 passengers and crew.
The Malaysian government took the airline private late last year.

When the former Goldman Sachs executive who runs the European Central Bank (ECB) announced that he was going to print 720 billion euros annually with which to purchase bad debts from the politically connected big banks, the euro sank and the stock market and Swiss france shot up. As in the US, quantitative easing (QE) serves to enrich the already rich. It has no other purpose.
The well-heeled financial institutions that bought up the troubled sovereign debt of Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain at low prices will now sell the bonds to the ECB for high prices. And despite depression level unemployment in most of Europe and austerity imposed on citizens, the stock market rose in anticipation that much of the 60 billion new euros that will be created each month will find its way into equity prices. Liquidity fuels the stock market.
Where else can the money to go? Some will go into Swiss francs and some into gold while gold is still available, but for the most part the ECB is running the printing press in order to boost the wealth of the stock-owning One Percent. The Federal Reserve and the ECB have taken the West back to the days when a handful of aristocrats owned everything.
The stock markets are bubbles blown by central bank money creation. On the basis of traditional reasoning there is no sound reason to be in equities, and sound investors have avoided them.
But there is no return anywhere else, and as the central banks are run by the rich for the rich, sound reasoning has proved to be a mistake for the past six years. This shows that corruption can prevail for an indeterminable period over fundamentals.
As I demonstrated in my book, The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism, first Goldman Sachs deceived lenders into over-lending to the Greek government. Then Goldman Sachs former executives took over Greece’s financial affairs and forced austerity upon the population in order to prevent losses to the foreign lenders.
This established a new principle in Europe, one that the IMF has relentlessly applied to Latin American and Third World debtors. The principle is that when foreign lenders make mistakes and over-lend to foreign governments, loading them up with debt, the bankers’ mistakes are rectified by robbing the poor populations. Pensions, social services, and public employment are cut, valuable resources are sold off to foreigners for pennies on the dollar, and the government is forced to support US foreign policy. John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hit Man describes the process perfectly. If you haven’t read Perkins book, you have little idea how corrupt and vicious the United States is. Indeed, Perkins shows that over-lending is intentional in order to set up the country for looting.
This is what Goldman Sachs did to Greece, intentionally or unintentionally.
It took the Greeks a long time to realize it. Apparently, 36.5 percent of the population was awoken by rising poverty, unemployment, and suicide rates. That figure, a little over one-third of the vote, was enough to put Syriza in power in the just concluded Greek election, throwing out the corrupt New Democracy party that has consistently sold out the Greek people to the foreign banks. Nevertheless, 27.7 percent of the Greeks, if the vote reporting is correct, voted for the party that has sacrificed the Greek people to the banksters. Even in Greece, a country accustomed to outpourings of people into the streets, a significant percentage of the population is sufficiently brainwashed to vote against their own interests.
Can Syriza do anything? It remains to be seen, but probably not. If the political party had received 55% or 65% or 75% of the vote, yes. But the largest vote at 36.5% does not show a unified country aware of its plight and its looting at the hands of rich banksters. The vote shows that a significant percentage of the Greek population supports foreign looting of Greece.
Moreover, Syriza is up against the heavies: the German and Netherlands banks who hold Greece’s loans and the governments that back the banks, the European Union which is using the sovereign debt crisis to destroy the sovereignty of the individual countries that comprise the European Union, Washington which backs EU sovereign power over the individual countries as it is easier to control one government than a couple of dozen.
Already the Western financial presstitutes are warning Syriza not to endanger its membership in the common currency by diverting from the austerity model imposed from abroad on Greek citizens with the complicity of New Democracy.
Apparently, there is a lack of formal means of exiting the EU and the euro, but nevertheless Greece can be threatened with being thrown out. Greece should welcome being thrown out.
Exiting the EU and the euro is the best thing that can happen to Greece. A country without its own currency is not a sovereign country. It is a vassal state of another power. A country without its own currency cannot finance its own needs. Although the UK is a member of the EU, the UK kept its own currency and is not subject to control by the ECB. A country without its own money is powerless. It is a non-entity.
If the US did not have its own dollar, the US would be of no consequence whatsoever on the world scene.
The EU and the euro were deception and trickery. Countries lost their sovereignty. So much for Western “self-rule,” “freedom,” “democracy,” all slogans without content. In the entire West there is nothing but the looting of people by the One Percent who control the governments.
In America, the looting does not rely on indebtedness, because the US dollar is the reserve currency and the US can print all the money needed in order to pay its bills and redeem its debt. In America the looting of labor has been through jobs offshoring.
American corporations discovered, and if they did not they were informed by Wall Street to move offshore or be taken over, that they could raise profits by moving their manufacturing operations abroad. The lower labor cost resulted in higher profits, higher share prices, huge managerial bonuses based on “performance,” and shareholder capital gains. Offshoring greatly increased the inequality in income and wealth in the US. Capital succeeded in looting labor.
The displaced well-paid manufacturing workers, if they were able to find replacement jobs, worked part-time minimum wage jobs at Walmart and Home Depot.
Economists, if they are entitled to the designation, such as Michael Porter and Matthew Slaughter, promised Americans that the fictional “New Economy” would produce better, higher-paying, and cleaner jobs for Americans than the “dirty fingernail” jobs that we were fortunate our corporations were moving offshore.
Years later, as I have proven conclusively, there is no sign of these “New Economy” jobs. What we have instead is a sharp decline in the labor force participation rate as the unemployed cannot find jobs. The replacement jobs for the manufacturing jobs are mainly part-time domestic service jobs.
People have to hold 2 or 3 of these jobs to make ends meet. These part time jobs offer no medical or pension benefits.
Now that this fact, once controversial believe it or not, has proven completely true, the same bought-and-paid-for spokespersons for robbing labor and destroying unions claim, without a shred of evidence, that the offshored jobs are coming home.
According to these propagandists, we now have what is called “reshoring.” A “reshoring” propagandist claims that the growth of “reshoring” over the past four years is 1,775 percent, an 18 times increase.http://www.manufacturingnews.com/news/2015/A.T.Kearny-No-Data-Supporting-Reshoring-0112151.html
There is no sign whatsoever of these alleged “reshoring” jobs in the monthly BLS payroll jobs statistics.
What reshoring is all about is propaganda to counteract the belated realization that “free trade” agreements and job offshoring were not beneficial to the American economy or its work force, but were beneficial only to the super-rich.
Like people throughout history, the American people are being turned into serfs and slaves because the fools believe the lies that are fed to them. They sit in front of Fox News, CNN, and whatever. They read the New York Times. If you want to learn how badly Americans have been served by the so-called media, read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States and Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick’s The Untold History of the United States.
The media helps the government, and the private interests that profit from their control of government, control the brainwashed public. We have to invade Afghanistan because a faction there fighting for political control of the country is protecting Osama bin Laden, whom the US accuses without any proof of embarrassing the mighty US with the 9/11 attack. We have to invade Iraq because Saddam has “weapons of mass destruction” that he surely has despite the reports to the contrary by the weapons inspectors. We have to overthrow Gaddafi because of a slate of lies that have best been forgotten. We have to overthrow Assad because he used chemical weapons even though all evidence is to the contrary. Russia is responsible for Ukraine problems, not because the US overthrew the elected democratic government but because Russia accepted a 97.6% vote of Crimeans to rejoin Russia where the province had resided for hundreds of years before a Ukrainian Soviet leader, Khrushchev, stuck Crimea into Ukraine, at the time a part of the Soviet Union along with Russia.
War, War, War, that is all Washington wants. It enriches the military/security complex, the largest component of the US GNP and the largest contributor, along with Wall Street and the Israel Lobby, to US political campaigns.
Anyone or any organization that offers truth to the lies is demonized. Last week the new chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, listed the Russian TV Internet service Russia Today as the equivalent of Boko Haram and the Islamic State terrorist groups. This absurd accusation is a prelude to closing down RT in the US just as Washington’s puppet UK government closed down Iran’s Press TV.http://rt.com/usa/225819-rt-isis-point-view-competition/
In other words, Anglo-Americans are not permitted any different news than what is served to them by “their” governments.
That is the state of “freedom” in the West today.
