JBS CEO Art Thompson's weekly news video update for January 28 - February 3, 2013.

Summary executions and mass human rights abuses targeting innocent civilians in Mali are being perpetrated by soldiers loyal to the dubious Malian regime in a campaign supported by the United Nations, the new socialist French government, and the Obama administration. According to human rights groups and witnesses on the ground, the atrocities are increasing as the number of murdered victims continues to rise — eerily reminiscent of similar tragic interventions in Libya, Syria, and the Ivory Coast.

In testimony before Senate and House committees, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton enthusiastically endorsed increased U.S. intervention in Africa. When government officials seem incapable of learning obvious lessons from the recent past, maybe their incentive is not to learn but to keep doing the same destructive things.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came under fire during and after her congressional testimony on the scandal that has become known as Benghazigate, with Republican lawmakers asking some tough questions but getting little in the way of answers. Indeed, the most serious concerns about the deadly attack on U.S. personnel in Libya remain as unaddressed today as they were before Clinton’s testimony.

Disregarding the overwhelming counsel of combat veterans, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is set to lift the ban on women in combat.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is calling for help in developing an underwater node that can hide and store drones and then deliver them to the surface of the sea by remote control.

A West Point think tank responsible for training future U.S. Army officers has released an extensive report warning of a growing domestic threat from “far right” conservative groups it says are prone to violence.

In an opinion article published last week about President Obama's nominees for secretary of defense and CIA director, former Congressman Ron Paul suggests that Americans pay more attention to the policies than the personalities.

An incredible story is being told to the press and sold in a new book by Morten Storm, a 37-year-old Dane who claims to have worked on a number of secret missions with intelligence groups from several Western nations.

Without permission from Congress or any constitutional authority to do so, the Obama administration pledged again this week to continue supporting the United Nations-approved war on rebels in Mali currently being led by the new socialist government of France. Analysts say the move puts the U.S. government even closer to being openly drawn into yet another unconstitutional war that will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications — especially the potential for more deadly anti-American “blowback.”
