"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Philadelphia government used Francis visit as test for city lock down, martial law?

Philadelphia government used Francis visit as test for city lock down, martial law?

The lockdown left most people scared, upset

Vitri added: "We didn't need to close every street, bridge and alley, scaring most people. The goal was to give a shot of adrenaline into our economy, not hurt small and large business alike so they had to close.

"We didn't need to sweep the homeless people off the streets, instead we needed to realize that they are a part of this great city too and like all cities we have problems that we need to deal with.

"We didn't need to spend an exorbitant amount of money fixing the streets and beautifying the city, when we are broke and can't even offer our children the education they deserve."

Vitri went on to say that the occasion of the pope's visit was both "magical" and "inspirational," but the conduct of the city's police and security forces left him bewildered and upset.

"This event has been magical as well as inspirational. This weekend riding my bicycle around neighborhoods with my children, going side to side in the middle of Broad Street has been an experience of a lifetime that they will soon never forget...and neither will I," he wrote.

"But I remain haunted by the empty streets and shuttered windows. I can't help feeling that Philadelphia's pride and sense of community is absent this weekend... probably because they all left."

It's already happened before

Others saw the massive security as a precursor of things to come.

Someone named Rick Romano wrote at Philly.com that the security and shuttering of businesses and roads was a martial law "test."

"The coming papal visit will subject Philadelphians to martial law without its declaration and without warrant. The city is being cordoned off into different high-security districts, and interstate travel is being restricted, disturbing millions of lives for the supposed benefit of a few," he wrote.

"We were not asked whether we should be so inconvenienced. Mayor Nutter seems to have unilaterally decided he wants it and that everyone who disagrees should either submit to his desire or leave town for three days," Romano continued.

"This is a test to see whether those in power can steamroller the population. It is our very freedom that is being challenged. This isn't about religion anymore. It's about subjugation!"

For some context, we reported in April 2013, shortly after the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, that the resulting police lockdown of many parts of the city was a martial law exercise that was upsetting to many. Then, as police and federal agents searched for a remaining suspect, residents were forced out of their homes at gunpoint, and all for "their own safety."

‘US killer drone programs: Americans, wake up to what government’s doing!’ 

Annie Machon is a former intel­li­gence officer for MI5, the UK Secur­ity Ser­vice, who resigned in the late 1990s to blow the whistle on the spies’ incom­pet­ence and crimes with her ex-partner, David Shayler. Draw­ing on her var­ied exper­i­ences, she is now a pub­lic speaker, writer, media pun­dit, inter­na­tional tour and event organ­iser, polit­ical cam­paigner, and PR con­sult­ant. She is also now the Dir­ector of LEAP, Europe. She has a rare per­spect­ive both on the inner work­ings of gov­ern­ments, intel­li­gence agen­cies and the media, as well as the wider implic­a­tions for the need for increased open­ness and account­ab­il­ity in both pub­lic and private sectors.  

People in the US and the UK should wake up to what their governments are doing in regards to drones programs where innocent civilians are being killed and whole regions devastated, says Annie Machon, a former MI5 agent.
A cash of newly leaked documents, the Drone Papers, has exposed the failures of one of the US’ highly classified drone programs in Somalia, Yemen and Afghanistan.

RT:The intelligence community is probably not shocked by the revelations, but the public are going to be shocked, aren’t they?
Annie Machon: I would hope so, yes. It always takes a few brave souls to speak out and take a huge risk of years of imprisonment to actually confirm what is already known, which has already been known for many years and has concerned certain people, but hasn’t caused outrage across the West. For example, there is an organization in the UK, the Bureau for Investigative Journalism, which has run a project for a number of years now called ‘Naming the Dead.’ It is aggregating the names and all the deaths across North Africa, Middle East, and Central Asia from these illegal drone strikes. They number hundreds and thousands. It’s just awful. It can be innocent wedding parties…whatever. These people are being killed unnecessarily on very dubious and very tenuous intelligence.

RT:The US leadership has been insisting the drone programs are very accurate and that civilian casualties, the so-called “collateral damage,” are kept to a minimum. However, the leaked documents suggest otherwise. Will anything change after its failures were exposed to the public?
AM: I would hope so. You mentioned collateral damage, but I would refer to the first major leak that came from Chelsea Manning - who is now languishing in American prison for 35 years for exposing a video that became known as “collateral murder” which was a precursor to the drone strikes, but which was an Apache helicopter crew shooting up innocent people and children in Afghanistan many years ago. This caused outrage at the time when it came out in 2010. Yet, things seem to have got worse, not better. It’s time that the American people did wake up to what their government is doing. And the UK people - because some of these drone strikes are coming from the UK. They are killing thousands of innocent people – not just based on the say so of junior intelligence officers who put the names forward for these CIA presidentially signed off kill lists every week, but based on very tenuous intelligence coming from electronic surveillance. The mistakes that can come out of that are horrific. Yet, they will devastate whole regions for life.
RT:The drone whistleblower preferred to stay anonymous for fear of government persecution. Is he right to be afraid, is this fear reasonable?
AM: Totally. Obama has been raging a war on whistleblowers trying to prosecute them under this century-old Espionage Act and putting those that he catches in prison for up to 35 years. That is a very high price to pay – you are sacrificing your life effectively to expose the crimes of the US military, US government and intelligence infrastructure. But we need more brave individuals to come forward.
RT:Are we going to see more of it in the future? What do you think this is going to do?
AM: It’s obviously not being stamped out. Edward Snowden came out just as Chelsea Manning was going on trial. This new whistleblower knows what the risks are and still has a conscience that it’s much more important to speak out. There are many of us from the intelligence agencies that have survived the process of whistleblowing. It is possible to build a new life and to be part of a new community of a much more integrity. This is why we reach out to anybody and say, “Please, do the right thing, because if you don’t, then you’re allowing our states to become more fascistic and totalitarian.”
