U.S. Military Used Christian NGO as Front for North Korea Espionage

U.S. Military Used Christian NGO as Front for North Korea Espionage:

Humanitarian International Services Group, or HISG, won special praise from the president for having demonstrated how a private charity could step in quickly in response to a crisis. “In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina,” read Hiramine’s citation, “HISG’s team launched a private sector operation center in Houston that mobilized over 1,500 volunteers into the disaster zone within one month after the hurricane.”

But as the evangelical Christian Hiramine crossed the stage to shake hands with President Bush and receive his award, he was hiding a key fact from those in attendance: He was a Pentagon spy whose NGO was funded through a highly classified Defense Department program.

The Biggest Winner From TPP Trade Deal May Be Vietnam


There will be no TPP. 
The truth and the lies lay in the details.

Vietnam and the other ten lackeys in the TPP should think twice before they are a penny wise and a Yuan foolish. 

TPP is a  multinational corporatista coup.
It is more about containing China, and furthering US crony corporate capitalism than it is about trade.

Seoul reconsidering TPP


South Korea already has a sovereignty problem with the US when it comes to their military in case of war.
Is Korea now willing to give up their  financial sovereignty?
I hope Korea thinks long and hard on this decision, and tells the TPP to take a hike.
TPP is the financial boot for Obama's Pivot to Asia.
It has more to do with containing China than it does with trade.
