  • Norway helicopter crash: 13 killed near Bergen

    Thirteen people are presumed dead after a helicopter crashed west of the Norwegian city of Bergen, rescuers say.

     

    Eleven of those on board were Norwegian, one was British and one Italian. No survivors have been found.

    A major rescue operation was launched but ended within hours of the crash.

    Meanwhile, Norway’s civil aviation authority has imposed a flight ban on the type of helicopter that crashed – the Eurocopter (EC) 225L Super Puma. Reports say it was “totally destroyed”.

    Its officials told VG newspaper (in Norwegian) that servicing for the helicopter which crashed had been delayed twice in 2015, for a total of 200 flying hours.

    Later, local media quoted a civil aviation authority spokeswoman as saying the helicopter’s two black boxes had been recovered.

    The British Civilian Aviation Authority later said it was suspending commercial use of the Super Puma, so it would be unable to carry oil and gas workers but could still fly for other purposes.

    The aircraft was flying from the Gullfaks oil field to Bergen, a centre for the North Sea oil and gas industry.

    Eleven bodies have been found, and two other people are still missing.

    Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said news of the crash was “horrible”.

    King Harald and Queen Sonja cancelled a trip to Sweden, Norwegian broadcaster NRK reported.

    ‘Peculiar engine sound’

    Oil company Statoil said all the passengers were on assignment for the company, but worked for different organisations.

    Statoil has suspended oil production at the Gullfaks B platform “so that we can take care of the staff in the best way possible”, company vice-president Arne Sigve Nylund told journalists.

    The helicopter came down near the small island of Turoey, just west of the village of Solsvik.

  • Bin Laden death: CIA panned for live-tweeting ‘news’

     

    The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been criticised online for live-tweeting the killing of Osama Bin Laden as it happened five years ago.

    It has shared details of the mission and intelligence that led to America’s most wanted man being found.

    But reaction has been largely negative, with one Twitter user calling the move “grotesque and embarrassing”.

    Others posted memes and gifs of people rolling their eyes and putting their heads in their hands.

    The CIA’s other tweets mostly concern historical trivia and artefacts.

    Bin Laden’s death: How it happened

    Have we been told the truth about Bin Laden’s death?

    The leader of al-Qaeda, who was thought to have ordered the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, was shot dead at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011 after evading capture by the US and its allies for nearly a decade.

    Speaking on the fifth anniversary of his death, CIA director John Brennan said the United States had destroyed a large part of al-Qaeda.

    Bin Laden had a great symbolic and strategic significance, he told CBS, and it was important to remove the man responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

    He said removing the head of the self-styled Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, could have a great impact but added that counter-terrorism agencies were confronting not just an organisation but a phenomenon, and the challenge would continue for many years.

    “I think it has had a resonance, unfortunately, that has appealed to the hearts and souls and minds of individuals who have been misled by their narrative of it being a religious banner,” he said. 

    The CIA’s tweet announcing its plans to “live-tweet” the raid was favourited more than 2,000 times on Twitter

  • The World’s Longest Drug Trafficking Tunnel Found in U.S.-Mexico Border

    Border agents have discovered what could be the longest cross-border tunnel in history, seizing seven tons of marijuana and a ton of cocaine that were crammed inside The 2,600ft tunnel extended 900ft from a house in Tijuana, Mexico, and across the border for a further 1,500ft, where it surfaced in a fenced-off industrial area in San Diego. The tunnel, discovered just in time for 4/20, the day every year that marijuana culture is celebrated across the US and beyond, was equipped with a rail system, ventilation, lights and a large elevator, officials said. The exit on the U.S. side is about three feet wide and was covered by a trash can inside a wooden pallet warehouse.

     

    'They were here last night and the night before, I came in and was like what's going on and they said they shut everything down.' Six people were arrested in San Diego and charged with drugs offenses. The previous longest tunnel found is believed to have been approximately 2,400ft long, slightly shorter than today's discovery.

  • 90-YEAR-OLD WOMAN PREGNANT AFTER YEARS OF PRAYING!

     

     

    BOONE COUNTY, West VirginiaMargaret Allen has raised 14 kids of her own, but none has given her a grandchild she so desperately wants.

    I’m not sure why my own kids won’t breed. Shame on them,” Allen told smhwtfnews.com “But God always answers my prayers and though, at my age, the so called “doctors” say I can’t get knocked up, they is wrong. I pray hard enough, God will let me give birth to a grandchild. I mean, my own child, that I will treat like a grandchild.”

    Margaret Allen got up every morning at 3 A.M. and would pray fourteen hours straight for God to put a baby inside her. Once she is finished, the octogenarian typically eats a few TV dinners and then spends the rest of the night in bed “mating with” a 22-year-old man she has chosen to be the father.

    She is so dedicated, like professional athlete-level dedicated,” Margaret’s friend Angie Dickson, a fellow congregation member at Bible Baptist Church, said. “When she sets a goal in her head, she don’t stop till she succeeds. Last year she spent two weeks praying my IBS away. She stopped a terrorist attack on our town. She even prayed for some homosexual men to get out of town and they did, eventually. She is truly a miracle worker. God will give her a baby.”

  • ISIS IS A US-ISRAELI CREATION. TOP TEN “INDICATIONS”

    ISIS is a US-Israeli creation, a factISIS is a US-Israeli Creation. Top Ten “Indications” as clear as the sky is blue. It’s a truth as black and white as the colors on their flag. For many alternative news readers, this may be patently obvious, but this article is written for the large majority of people in the world who still have no idea who is really behind the rise of ISIS. No matter which name they go by – ISIS, ISIL, IS or Daesh – the group has been deliberately engineered by the US and Israel to achieve certain geopolitical goals.

    They are a religious, fundamentalist, Sunni terrorist organization created to terrorize and overthrow certain secular or Shiite Arab nations such as Syria and Iraq, but they are not just “Islamic”. They may be Muslims, and they may be advocating an Islamic State, but they are very much working towards the goals of Zionism.

    It’s amazing how many people still struggle to get that point. We have been inundated with propaganda surrounding the fraudulent war on terror, notably terms such as Islamic terrorism and radical Islam, but more accurate phrases would be Zio-Islamic terrorism and radical Zio-Islam. Secret military agencies such as the CIA and the Mossad pull the strings. Here is a list of the top 10 ‘indications’ that ISIS is a US-Israeli creation.

     

    Indication #1: ISIS Foreknowledge via Leaked DIA Doc

    The DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) is 1 of 16 US military intelligence agencies. According to a leaked document obtained by Judicial Watch, the DIA wrote on August 12, 2012 that:

     

    This was written before ISIS came on to the world stage. Clearly ISIS was no random uprising, but rather a carefully groomed and orchestrated controlled opposition group.

    Indication #2: ISIS Never Attacks Israel
    Indication #3: Toyota Trucks
    Indication #4: ISIS’ First Class Social Media Skills
    Indication #5: Israeli Group SITE First to Release ISIS Footage
    Indication #6: ISIS Leader Baghdadi a Mossad Agent
    Indication #7: Leaked Cables Showing US Plotting Syrian Overthrow
    Indication #8: Russia Bombs ISIS, US Protects ISIS
    Indication #9: ISIS Always the Excuse for Further Intervention
    Indication #10: ISIS is an Acronym for Mossad. [The Israeli Secret Intelligence Service. Interesting Coincidence]

    “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime …”
