OKC Bombshell implicates FEDS

Neo-Nazi leader 'was MI6 agent'
 
Here we find yet another instance where the enemies the government tells us to be afraid of are created by the government itself. "Terrorists" try to bomb the WTC, then we find out the "terrorists" included FBI. "Militia's" are declared a threat to the nation following the OK city bombing, then we find out that most Militia's are being run by BATF informants. The founder and leader of Elohim City, a "hotbed of white separatism" at the time Tim McVeigh was hanging around, was also an FBI informant. "Neo-Nazis" are on the rise, and we find out the Neo-Nazi leaders are intelligence agents. "Al Qaeda" knows down the WTC on 9-11, then we find out that at least in the case if Palestine, "Al Qaeda" is actually a Mossad front. Do you get it yet? All this terror and terror group crap is a FRAUD by the government itself to scare you under control. - M. R.

Judge backs lawyer in FBI-Okla. City link
A federal judge on Thursday rewrote a sentence to clarify a ruling that had suggested Timothy McVeigh received help from paramilitary militias in the Oklahoma City bombing and that the government had an informant in the bombing conspiracy.

The judge rewrote the sentence to eliminate the word "fact" and substitute: "The plaintiff claims that this document indicates that there was an undercover operative in with Timothy McVeigh and members of the various militia groups who aided and supported McVeigh."

Dick Cheney Fitted for New Halliburton Uniform - Striped Jumpsuitt
The US Securities and Exchange Commission is conducting a formal investigation into whether Halliburton made improper payments to government officials in Nigeria in connection with the construction and expansion by TSKJ of a natural gas liquefaction complex and facilities at Bonny Island in Rivers State, Nigeria.

And last but not least, on August 7, 2006, the Financial Times of London reported that KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, is being investigated by Britain's Serious Fraud Office over the company's role in an alleged plot to pay more than $170 million in bribes to win $7 billion worth of contracts at a Nigerian oil plant.

For part of the period under investigation, the newspaper reported, Halliburton was headed by Vice President Dick Cheney.

Anthrax probe's pace questioned, FBI agent says he wanted transfer
A U-S Senate committee chairman questions the pace of the F-B-I's five-year-old anthrax mailing investigation.
Forget the pace. What they really should ask is why the FBI avoided speaking to a real suspect, a man who was actually caught on the security system going into the lab where the anthrax used in the letters was stored, without proper authorization, AFTER being fired over a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker.

Readers are strongly encouraged to FAX Senator Grassley's office at either (202) 224-6020 or (515) 288-5097 to demand answers to these questions. I suggest FAX because emails and the web form are either ignored or filtered on this issue. - M. R.

Cheney Warns Iraq Terrorists Trying to Sway U.S. Election
 
Oh sure, Dick, the Iraqi people aren't trying to kick out a foreign occupier, they are only killing our kids in uniform to help the Democrats!

Pathetic.

Just #$%^ing pathetic. - M. R.



 
THE LIE OF THE CENTURY
 
This is really what this election is all about. The government lied us into a war. There is no way the American people would return liars to power who have spent so much of our money and our blood on a deception. If this election does not remake the Congress, then the election is rigged; just another lie in a long series of lies we have lived under. - M. R.


 
Newsweek: Karl Rove's, er , Al-Qaeda's plan for 'October surprise'
Is Osama bin Laden going to weigh in on the midterm elections? A senior counterterrorism official, anonymous, like other officials NEWSWEEK spoke to, because the subject is sensitive, says that based on previous patterns—such as the release of a rare bin Laden tape just before the 2004 presidential vote—a message before Election Day wouldn't be surprising.
I wonder if Karl himself will be wearing the fake beard this time. - M. R.


 
Israeli "false flag" attack on the British Gulf Fleet on 3 November
I'm leaking this because I believe my government is about to commit treason. They know, through our signals intelligence, that the Israelis are preparing to strike our fleet in the Gulf on 3/11/6 and pass it off as an Iranian sub attack - yet none of our intercepts have been relayed to the Royal Navy.
May be a hoax.

Maybe not. - M. R.

Police: Hate crime never happened
A reported anti-Semitic hate crime at the University of New Hampshire earlier this month never happened and the student who reported it has been arrested and charged with lying to authorities, police said yesterday.


 
Venezuelan police foil another "false flag" attack
Wilfredo Borraz, police chief for the Baruta section of Caracas, told reporters that one of the explosives was found outside the school and one inside a planter about 50 meters (yards) from the embassy entrance.

He said both were in black plastic bags and contained "small fliers with publicity alluding to Hizbullah" - the Lebanese guerrilla group.



 
So..... if Bush loses the Congress, will he blame it on Hugo Chavez?

'Mr. Secretary, What'd You Have Torched At Ft. Meade's 902nd Military Intel Group?'
Here’s what little we know: Late Friday, a crazy six-alarm fire gutted the three-story Building 54, where the 902nd Military Intelligence Group did its special work. That work included infiltrating a group of Quaker pacifists, running allegedly-banned Total Information Awareness and TALON surveillance monstrosities that DARPA was forced to hide somewhere else, and conducting “counterintelligence activities in support of Army commanders and to protect Army forces, secrets and technologies by detecting, identifying, neutralizing and exploiting foreign intelligence services and international terrorist threats.”

The Jackal's Feast Goes On
In other words, as oft reported here (and here and here), much of that money has simply disappeared – into corporate coffers, into copious baksheesh for the Bush-backed Iraqi government, into kickbacks for Congressional vultures, and doubtless into slush funds both for covert ops (including perhaps the Bushists' deliberate fomenting of terrorism and arming of militias) and domestic politics. We are most likely seeing the fruits of some of this blood money wash up on American screens at this very moment, as the GOP's last-ditch "Smear and Fear" campaign goes into hyperdrive.

The Importance of Understanding Polls, Lying 101
Even with the blatant attempt to design a poll that would result in people saying no to impeachment, the poll actually reveals that more than twice the amount of people favor impeachment and if you correctly add the "maybes" to the "yes" column, you have more than 10,000 votes for impeachment.


 
Congress, FBI battle over anthrax investigation
 
The FBI is having a Zack attack.

The hard fact is that while the FBI made life for Dr. Stephen Hill a living hell, they had but ignored a real suspect, a man actually caught entering the storage area where the strain of Anthrax used in the letters was kept, without proper authorization AFTER being fired from his job for a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker.

But the FBI, following the advice of Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, focused totally on Dr. Hill while ignoring Dr. Zack, which either means the FBI is part of the cover-up of the real source of the anthrax letters, or is still as stupid as they were when they had but ignored the complete plans for the Japanese strike at Pearl Harbor months before the actual attack. (Source: Pearl Harbor: The Verdict Of History by Gordon Prange, appendix 7 published in 1986. Based on records from the JOINT CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Nov 15, 1945 to May 31, 1946.)

So, FBI agents (who I know are reading this), which is it? Are you covering up the real killer, or just being stupid idiots again? - M. R.

OKay troopers, everyone take a moment to send Senator Grassley a note including THIS LINK and demand he ask the FBI why they spent so much time harassing Dr. Stephen Hatfill while ignoring a real suspect, actually CAUGHT INSIDE THE STORAGE AREA WHERE THE ANTHRAX USED IN THE LETTERS WAS KEPT, after being fired from his job over a racially motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker. - M.

Mehlman: Democrats have "concern for terrorist civil liberties"
On the heels of George W. Bush signing the torture bill into law this week, Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Ken Mehlman has sent an e-mail to GOP supporters calling this debasement of our national creed "an important reminder of what we can accomplish when the president and Congress work together for the safety of America."

We expect a charlatan like Mehlman to depict the rubber-stamp, GOP Congress bowing to Bush's every whim as an example of how they "work together" -- no harm, no foul. That's his job.

Mr. Mehlmen seems to confuse worrying about the civil rights of terrorists with worrying about the civil rights of anyone merely accused of being a terrorist. With the abysmally high record of false arrests coupled with the abysmally low record of actual terrorists found, Mr. Mehlman should be just as concerned with the civil rights of the accused as anyone else.

Yet Mr. Mehlman clearly seems to feel that terrorism is such a serious charge that even innocence should never be allowed as a defense! Thus, civil rights designed to prevent false imprisonment and torture are an inconvenience that must be dispensed with. - M. R.

One source says they believe the meeting to be part of a larger campaign to allegedly create and launder falsified intelligence by planting it with key publications and individuals abroad, in hopes that it will seep back into official American channels as though it were legitimate information, collected by allied intelligence organizations. Such a campaign of disinformation, if it exists, would be difficult to track, precisely because it is designed to mask its origins through other channels.

Al-Qaeda video tape evidence indicts “Azzam the American” but not bin Laden
An Internet search of this article title reveals that virtually every media outlet in the United States picked up this story by either reprinting the Associated Press article or creating another version of the same content.
This is a hoax to justify the recent military tribunals bill, by waving a "Shore 'nough" American Al Qaeda around the media.

Congress Members 'furious' at FBI for 'blackout' of 2001 anthrax attacks probe
"The FBI has completely shut Congress out of its now five-year investigation into anthrax attacks on Capitol Hill and around the nation, with accusations flying up and down Pennsylvania Avenue about the probe into the worst biochemical attacks in U.S. history," Paul Kane writes.
Of course the FBI has shut the Congress out. If the Congress knew the facts that we all know, they would understand that the FBI has had a real suspect all along.

Congress would then ask the question all America has been asking; why did the FBI focus on Stephen Hatfill, for whom no evidence existed of guilt, while pointedly avoiding Dr. Philip Zack, who was actually caught entering the storage area where the Anthrax used in the letters was kept, without authorization and after being fired from his job over a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker. - M.

American Traitor?
For the first time in more than 50 years, federal prosecutors are preparing to charge an American citizen with treason. Barring any last-minute complications, the charges will be filed today against Adam Gadahn, the American who has appeared in at least four al-Qaida videos, the most recent one in September.
This is a hoax. Adam Gadahn's REAL name is Adam Pearlman, and he is a grandson of a board member of the ADL.

This is a media hoax, no different that when the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador pretended to be a nurse to accuse Iraq of stealing Kuwait incubators and leaving babies to die on the floor.

No doubt, "Gadahn's" trial will be filled with lurid confessions about the threat of "Internal Toilets". - M. R.

Wars and propaganda machines
Before the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, the neocon propaganda machine in the media, led by Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News (News Corp), assisted by ABC (Disney), NBC (GE), CBS (Viacom), TBS (Time Warner), CNN (Time Warner), MTV (Viacom), plus the Weekly Standard (News Corp), the National Review, the New Republic, the Wall Street Journal (Dow Jones), the New York Post (News Corp), the New York Sun, the Washington Times (Sun Myung Moon), etc., initiated an all-out propaganda campaign to persuade the American people that Saddam Hussein was really the villain behind the 9/11 attacks, not the Taliban of Afghanistan or bin Laden's alleged al Qaeda terrorist network. They succeeded so well in this endeavor that many Americans believed the fabricated fable and swallowed the bait -- hook, line, and sinker.

BLOODY PAST BUSH’S SECRET ADVISOR HAS BLOODY PAST
As more U.S. soldiers die in Iraq, and President Bush tells Americans he will “stay the course” even if his only supporters are his wife and their dog, Barney, reports have come out that Bush is getting advice from a man who knows all about failure.

If Kissinger’s past teaches anything about his “new world order” it is that he will get into bed with dictators and the cost of his policies in human lives lost will not mean too much to his sensibilities. A brief examination of his days as national security advisor and secretary of state under Nixon and Ford, confirm his taste for dirty, clandestine wars, as well as an ability to hide the truth from Congress and the American people.

The Cost of War: Hidden from Purview
Despite past objections about multiple requests for defense funds and inadequate justification for parts of the spending request, the defense bill that Congress approved Friday is no different. Either the clamor has not been loud enough or the American public hasn’t quite reckoned with the full consequences of fragmented and poorly justified defense spending not only for the fiscal health of the country, but also the vitality of the forces.

As Comptroller General David Walker testified in July, “neither DOD nor Congress knows how much the war on terror is costing or how appropriated funds are being used.” The Defense Department has ignored two successive pieces of legislation seeking detailed reporting on how the emergency funds have actually been spent. In effect, there is only a minimal effort to scrutinize budget request in advance, or spending, after the fact, for a quarter of the Pentagon’s resources.

The danger for prosecutors is that the sheer volume and sensitivity of the classified information Libby wants to introduce could scuttle the trial.

The trial would collapse if the intelligence agencies refuse to declassify the information.

Ex-Page's Lawyer: Drudge's "Prank" Story "A Piece of Fiction"
Now, the lawyer for the former page in question, 21-year-old Jordan Edmund, says the Drudge Report article is false. Calling the story "a piece of fiction," Stephen Jones told the Daily Oklahoman that "there is not any aspect of this matter that is a practical joke nor should anyone treat it that way."

This afternoon, ABC News published news of three more former pages who had sexual online conversations with Foley similar to Edmund's.

That the 16th Amendment wasn't actually ratified? That Lee Oswald and James Earl Ray (etc. etc. etc.) were patsies? That TWA 800 was really killed by a US Navy test missile gone wrong?

All evidence indicates that the tapes are provided to Fouda and Al Jazeera by As Sahab, the "production company" of Al Qaeda, via a group known as Intelcenter, who also SELL the videos online.

Intelcenter is run by Ben Venzke, who is an interesting character. A google search results in the revelation that he used to be the director of intelligence at a company called IDEFENSE, which is a verisign company. IDEFENSE is a web security company that monitors intelligence from the middle east conflicts and focuses on cyber threats among other things.

It is also heavily populated with long serving ex military intelligence officials.

Banks' $7 Billion Tax-Exempt Bond Ruse Yields Nothing for Needy
During the past decade, local governments across the U.S. have issued more than 70 of these phantom bonds -- at least $7 billion of them. That's enough money to pay the salaries of 150,000 teachers in the U.S. for one year, based on an average pay of $46,597. Proceeds from the tax-exempt bond sales are supposed to be used to improve homes for the poor or upgrade health care for the elderly or supply computers to inner-city schools.

Taxpayers never get most of those benefits; the winners are the banks, insurance companies and financial advisers that get paid millions of dollars for crafting these transactions and then profit by using bond proceeds for their own investment gains.

Who knew what, when? When the base finds out who's feeding this monster, they're not going to be happy. The people who want to see this thing blow up are ABC News and a lot of Democratic operatives, people funded by George Soros.

He went on to suggest that operatives aligned with former President Bill Clinton knew about the allegations and were perhaps behind the disclosures in the closing weeks before the Nov. 7 midterm elections, but he offered no hard proof

This man wouldn't know how to find personal responsibility with a flashlight and both hands: all he can do is blame the messenger.

But everyone in Congress, no matter what party affiliation, has the responsibility to get any Congress person's inappropriate behaviour against under-age kids stopped IMMEDIATELY. - M. R.

Reynolds aide tried to block Foley story
 
Nixon learned the hard way that it isn't the crime that gets you, it's the cover-up afterwards. What is fueling this scandal is NOT the sex itself (as creepy as that is) but the apparent willingness of the entire GOP leadership to conceal the truth from the public. It makes the voters wonder what else is being hidden from them, like the real state of the war in Iraq, the real reasons for same, etc. Once again we see that truth is such a valuable commodity that Congress economizes it! - M.

U.S. Government Caught Red-Handed Releasing Staged Al-Qaeda Videos
Revelations that the US government had been in possession of footage released on Sunday depicting alleged Al-Qaeda hijackers and Osama Bin Laden since 2001 and evidence that the footage itself was filmed by security agencies, went unquestioned by the media - who blindly towed the official line that the tape was released by Al-Qaeda. This is smoking gun proof that the U.S. government is staging the release of alleged Al-Qaeda tapes and it demands an immediate Congressional investigation.
Portions of the tape are admitted to have been made by "a security agency", while others are clipped from a UK documentary. Despite claims that "Al Qaeda" released the tape, other sources reported that the US had been in possession of the bin-Laden footage since at least 2001. - M. R.

Atta's Father Says Video Fake, Credibility of 'Hijackers Tape' Crumbles
New revelations about the so-called 'laughing hijackers' tape expose its release as a stage-managed politically timed trick. The father of Mohammed Atta blasts the video as a "fake" while contradictory claims of its origin and nature baffle even mainstream terror experts - while even the media admits that the tape was released not by Al-Qaeda but by the U.S. intelligence apparatus.

Clues sought in Atta video
Video footage of 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta reading a "martyrdom" will about 20 months before the attacks on the US may never have been intended to be released in thatform.

And an expert on Islamic extremism predicted the footage was so out of character for al-Qa'ida it could have been taken by a security agency.

THE LIE OF THE CENTURY
 
As the Congress' credibility collapses in a cover-up of pedophilia on the doorstep to election, it is worth looking back at the greatest lie of this government, the lie that sent our young people off to die in a war of conquest, a war which even now appears to ultimately be doomed to fail.

BRITAIN: The mysterious case of the disappearing 'terror' plots
Readers of Britain’s newspapers are regularly accosted with blood-curdling banner headlines screaming of the “thwarting” of potentially catastrophic “terror plots”, of “Islamic fanatics” being apprehended in daring midnight raids. “Chilling” details, “revealed” by anonymous police and government “sources”, underline why “we” must accept a “trade-off” between civil liberties and “security”, the editorials assure an apprehensive populace. Months or even years later, however, news that many of the “plots” never actually existed is buried behind the latest sex scandal or exploitative “expose” — if reported at all.

On the other hand, Musharraf’s story fits.

Dear Media: You totally misread Denny Hastert's letter to the Justice Dept.
Hastert's letter is written in such a way as to exempt Hastert and the GOP leadership from the Justice Dept. investigation he's requesting. Instead, the investigation is intended to focus on outside parties - outside of Congress - be they non-profit groups like CREW, journalists, bloggers, and even potential victims and their relatives who knew of the communications but didn't contact the authorities. I.e., Hastert wants Justice to investigate the very people who broke the story and thus got the GOP in trouble.

But it has emerged that Mr Hastert was told about some of the e-mails months ago by congressman Thomas Reynolds, chairman of the Republican national congressional committee, who failed to pursue the matter.

STATE OF DENIAL
There was a vast difference between what the White House and the Pentagon knew about the situation in Iraq and what they were saying publicly. But the discrepancy was not surprising.

In other words, they have been lying all along. - M. R.

Latest pile of manure from Homeland Security
"Iraqi citizens have reported our U.S. Troops & Coalition Forces will be the intended target of a major chemical/biological attack in the "Green Zone" 10 - 14 days from the November, 2006 U.S. Elections."
Note that the source makes the link between this supposed attack and the election. Now, who would GAIN from a WMD attack on the Green Zone? Certainly Bush and the GOP (and don't forget that Karl Rove promised the GOP an "October Surprise" to help them win in November just a week ago).

A WMD attack on our kids would get the families of those soldiers angry, and could be pointed to as "proof" that Iraq really DID have WMDs all along, and gee weren't we all wrong about George Bush calling hum a liar about Iraq's nookular bombs, and all that?

Qui bono? THAT is who is really behind this threat of an attack. - M. R.

CIA counter-proliferation front company's cover blown by State Department official two years before White House leak to media.
 
U.S. intelligence sources, speaking on conditions of strict anonymity, have told WMR that the cover status of Brewster Jennings & Associates, the counter-proliferation front company that Valerie Plame Wilson and her CIA counter-proliferation non-official cover (NOC) colleagues used as a front for their operations, was blown in two phone calls placed in June 2001 to two foreign intelligence agents in Washington, DC by then-Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Marc Grossman. The calls were intercepted by the FBI, which had targeted the communications of Grossman and the two foreign intelligence agents as part of a counter-intelligence investigation, according to the sources. - M.

Congressman wants FBI anthrax briefing
A New Jersey congressman said Wednesday it should have taken the FBI days, not years, to determine the anthrax used in 2001 that killed five people was much less sophisticated than believed.
You can send Rep. Holt a message HERE Please include the Hartford Courant news story that identifies Dr. Philip Zack as having been caught entering the Ft. Detrick where the Anthrax used in the letters was stored, WITHOUT proper authorization and AFTER being fired from his job over a racially motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker. Ask Rep. Holt to ask WHY Zack was left alone while Dr. Stephen Hatfill's life was destroyed. Ask Rep. Holt WHY the FBI let itself be led around by Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, who pointed the finger at Hatfill.

Then ask if this sudden "discovery" of the much simpler anthrax is';t just another FBI deception to take the heat off of Ft. Detrick and Dr. Zack.

Do it now. I'll wait. - M. R.

FLASHBACK: Official: Unusual coating in anthrax mailings
The purity, fineness and potency of the anthrax -- particularly that mailed to Sens. Tom Daschle, D-South Dakota, and Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont -- makes it highly unlikely that the sender of the letters made and treated the spores in a makeshift setting, according to officials involved in the massive investigation.
What evidence there is in this case points to a US Government scientist, Dr. Philip Zack, as the man who stole the Anthrax used in the letters. The anthrax used in the letters is a genetic match to the strain used in the Fort Detrick Laboratory, and Dr. Zack was caught on security equipment entering that lab late one night without proper authorization AFTER being fired from his job over a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker.

Clearly, there is a case against Dr. Zack. But, spurred on by Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, the FBI kept its focus solely on Dr. Stephen Hatfill, against whom absolutely NO evidence of involvement ever existed.

So here we are, 5 years later, and the FBI is now trying to claim that, well, all the prior evidence is wrong, the anthrax did not come from a US Government lab, and therefore there are no leads to follow any more.

Crossfire War - Tehran Plans Nuclear Terror Attack Inside US - Ramadan 9-24
 
This is just more "Booga booga" to scare the weak-minded into supporting an unprovoked attack on Iran. How do we know? Common sense (uncommon enough in the US these days). Why would Tehran do such a thing?

Even if Iran had one or two nuclear weapons (which nobody has found any evidence of), why would they attack the US? The US would retaliate with hundreds of warheads. Iran knows this.

Iran is trying to avoid war by all means short of surrendering her right (under a treaty signed with the United States) to build power stations and make fuel rods for them. In contrast, the US is searching for any excuse to invade Iran and no doubt would do so even if Iran were to suspend nuclear enrichment.

So, Que Bono, who GAINS if there is a nuclear terror strike inside the US? Who gets what they want? Who WANTS the US to wage war against Iran? Who is really behind "Al Qaeda"? - M. R.



 
FLASHBACK: The US Invasion of Afghanistan was Announced Months Before the 9/11 Attacks
 
In early 2001, while the American public was distracted by the Gary Condit scandal, The US Government was already informing other governments of plans to invade Afghanistan in October following the collapse of negotiations over a pipline right-of-way. Of course, the American people would have never supported an invasion over a pipeline right-of-way. So, 9-11 happened, EXACTLY when the US Government needed the American people to be angry enough to invade a foreign nation.

EXACTLY, when the US Government needed it.

EXACTLY. - M. R.

Report: Theory in anthrax case broadens suspect pool
This morning the Hartford Courant reports that an FBI microbiologist says whoever mailed that anthrax to Lundgren did not need sophisticated equipment or intimate knowledge to produce it.
"Oh, juyst about ANYONE could have whipped the stuff up in their kitchen, sooooooooooo no need to look at Fort Detrick and their ex-staffers. Honest. Really. No fooling."

(Ahem).

What pointed the finger at Fort Detrick as the source of the Anthrax spores used in the letters was not just the high degree of "weaponization" of the spores, but DNA tests which showed the anthrax in the letters to be the exact same strain used at Fort Detrich. Even if one buys this lathetic attempt to blur the issue, and believes in a kitchen-sink bioweapons lab, the fact remains that the original source spores still had to come from Fort Detrick. - M.

The National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center’s (NBACC) $128 million, 160,000-square-foot facility is under construction at Fort Detrick, Md. There, the United States has already weaponized more than a dozen diseases—including anthrax, plague, botulism and ebola—and bioengineered war-friendly “improvements.” Scientists are also using DNA-synthesizing techniques to fabricate genetically altered or man-made viruses, and to study the feasibility of creating germ weapons targeting particular ethnicities.

It was easy to find Iraqi reporters who would write U.S. military-friendly op-ed pieces for a little extra cash.

The reporters, cameramen, and sound operators we spoke with all said the same thing: they would work in Ramadi and Fallujah as part of a Rapid Response Cell only if they were embedded with U.S. troops. But because the whole point was that they were to report news that at least appeared to be independent of the military, this was impossible. We even explored whether we could embed our reporters with Iraqi troops there. But this also proved to be untenable.

Government oil lease blunder hidden 6 years
Interior Department officials realized in 2000 that their offshore lease agreements with oil companies shortchanged American taxpayers, but they covered up their multibillion-dollar mistake for six years, an investigator said Wednesday.

After combing through 11,000 e-mail messages and interviewing 29 current and former Interior Department employees, federal investigators still aren't ready to say who they think told a staffer to omit contract language that would have forced oil companies operating in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico to pay billions of dollars in royalty payments as energy prices rose.

THE TRUTH HURTS
If you want to make a man your enemy or even get him to hate you, just try and tell him the truth about a politician, his political party, his church or about Israel. I don’t’ have the exact quote handy, but a famous writer once said, the men the people most admire are the greatest liars, while the men they most hate are those who try and tell them the truth. Those of us in the truth movement are hated by those we are trying to educate. This writer has made enemies of his own relations; in both the political and religious field. Facts mean nothing to a person, once his mind is made up. You simply cannot teach some men anything, because they already know so much that is not true.

With more than half of all Americans now doubting the official story of 9-11, a new 9-11 is risky, to say the least. But even those who accept a new fake terror attack at face value will likely see it as a complete failure of all the enhanced security we have had to endure over the last 5 years. All the peeking into our personal lives, the warrantless taps on our phones, the loss of medical privacy, the groping of our wives and daughters at the airports, the forced unlocking of luggage followed by the inevitable epidemic of looting, the "black bag" searches of our homes without our knowledge and permission, together with all the headline-making arrests that turned out to be little more than flimsy excuses to generate headlines, will be seen as totally ineffective, a waste of money, and an affront to the Constitution. - M.

John Lennon, Still a Security Threat
When Justice Department attorneys urge courts not to release national security information provided by a foreign government under a Freedom of Information Act suit, they argue that the courts should defer to the experts in the Department of Homeland Security and the White House.

But what if such intelligence isn't about today's terrorist threats? What if it's about the antiwar activities of a British rock star during the Vietnam War?

That's precisely what's at issue in a Freedom of Information Act suit pending before the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The case of John Lennon's FBI files illustrates the federal government's obsession with secrecy, which it justifies with appeals to national security.

What is this government so terrified the people will find out about a rock legend who was murdered so many years ago? - M. R.

9/11 Propaganda Piece is WORLDWIDE
Everyone is rightfully outraged about how PT 9/11 will affect American audiences. But one must also remember that this propaganda piece will be shown to a worldwide audience. The European trailer THAT CAN BE FOUND HERE ON YAHOO (I've posted it -- commercial free -- at YouTube), still blames Clinton in no uncertain terms. In fact, it's the main point conveyed in the trailer.
Long time readers know I am no fan of the Clintons. But this attempt to place the blame for 9-11 on him is total nonsense, and worse, it's a distraction (probably intentional) from the real issue of US Government complicity in the 9-11 hoax. - M. R.

U.S. officials urge nations' discretion on CIA prisons
The Bush administration yesterday cautioned countries with secret CIA prisons in their territory against disclosing the sites' existence, even as the European Parliament renewed its demand that its members come clean if they host such detention centers.

The State Department urged the countries that host CIA prisons to keep quiet, because the administration wants the practice to continue and "certain aspects" of it should not be discussed.

Whistle-blower slams Iraq contractors
Halliburton subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root charged millions to the government for recreational services never provided to U.S. troops in Iraq, including giant tubs of chicken wings and tacos, a widescreen TV, and cheese sticks meant for a military Super Bowl party, according to a federal whistle-blower suit unsealed Friday.

Filed last year in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., by former KBR employee Julie McBride, the lawsuit claims the giant defense contractor billed the government for thousands of meals it never served, inflated the number of soldiers using its fitness and Internet centers, and regularly siphoned off great quantities of supplies destined for American soldiers.

If Saddam had actually had WMDs (which he didn't) and had given them to Al Qaeda (which he didn't), Al Qaeda (the real ones, not those Israelis dressed up as them) would have just as likely used them on Iraq as anywhere else. - M.

The head of Europe's human rights watchdog yesterday called for monitoring of CIA agents operating in Britain and other European countries, after President George Bush's admission that the US had detained terrorist suspects in secret prisons.

WP: 9/11 conspiracy theorists multiply
It was a year before David Ray Griffin, an eminent liberal theologian and philosopher, began his stroll down the path of disbelief.

False Flag Operations: Declassified Military Documents Show How US Government Planned Terrorist Attacks Against its Own Citizens
As reported by ABC News, stunning military documents codenamed "Operation Northwoods" were declassified in recent years and show how in 1962, the top US military leaders planned an operation to create terror attacks against its own cities and kill US citizens.

The documents state that through the fabrication of false evidence, the US would blame Cuba and gain public support for an unpopular war against Castro. They included developing a fake Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, the use of airplanes, and much more.

Folks, this is a HOAX, with a capital "H".

Adam Gadahn's real name is Adam Pearlman. Even the FBI's wanted poster for him lists Adam Pearlman as one of the names he goes by. Adam's grandfather was on the board of directors for the ADL.

On terrorism, Bush maligns history and our intelligence
There is something sad about a grown man playing children's make-believe war games in a tree house in grandpa's back yard - which is how President George W. Bush came across Thursday night in his speech on the importance of winning the war in Iraq in the global battle against terrorism. Rarely does a leader of a great country like the United States malign history, his people's intelligence and the dignity of over a billion Muslims in one speech, but Bush did that Thursday night and will probably keep doing it for a while.


 
Highly enriched uranium found in Iran
 
As this article admits, traces of highly enriched uranium are commonly found on used equipment.

FLASHBACK: The very strange saga of Adam Gadahn
Gadahn has become a cause célèbre for the American right, a made-to-order American traitor from central casting. What if he really was manufactured? His confused background, with a detour through heavy metal, his moving in with his grandparents (grandfather on the ADL board), his rare internet essay anachronistically written from a Zionist perspective and not the perspective of the American government in 1995 (as if the Zionists had already written the post-September 11 script), his immediate ‘conversion’ to Islam and association with ‘radical’ Muslims – it’s all just a bit too contrived. We have seen other examples of how Israel has infiltrated Islamist organizations (most recently in Lebanon). Have the Zionists infiltrated al Qaeda at its highest levels? Or is it more accurate to look at al Qaeda as a ‘false flag’ Zionist organization?

--> 1993 World Trade Center bombing evidence suppressed by chief federal prosecutors in case -- Patrick J. Fitzgerald and Michael Chertoff.
U.S. federal prosecutors suppressed critical evidence in trial of 1993 World Trade Center bombers. According to U.S. intelligence sources, the FBI and Justice Department sat on volumes of translations of Arabic telephone intercepts gathered before the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center from U.S.- and Sudan-based Muslim militants who once worked for U.S. intelligence in the mujaheddin war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. The critical intelligence, which demonstrated a link between the CIA and "Afghan Arab" muhajeddin forces, including those loyal to Osama bin Laden, was never introduced into the trial of the Brooklyn- and Jersey City-based based cell that included the blind Egyptian cleric Shaikh Omar Abdul Rahman, Ramzi Yousef, and Eyad Ismail.

Well, this piece seems to spend a lot of time telling us "there's no denying...flaws of hyperbole..." but it never gets around to enumerating all of the stuff "he got right."

Also, twice it tells us he "committed suicide" without mentioning the questionable circumstances of two gunshot wounds to the head. He even tells us exactly why Webb would have decided to kill himself, with his life falling apart.

It seems this piece is trying to say nice things, but concentrates on delivering more veiled attacks. A fist wrapped in velvet. - M. R.

The Liquid Bomb Hoax: The Larger Implications
Clearly the decision to cook up the phony bomb plot was not motivated by economic interests, but domestic political reasons. The Blair administration, already highly unpopular for supporting Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, was under attack for his unconditional support for Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, his refusal to call for an immediate ceasefire and his unstinting support for Bush’s servility to US Zionist lobbies. Even within the Labor party over a hundred backbenchers were speaking out against his policies, while even junior cabinet ministers such as Prescott stated that Boss Bush’s foreign policy smelled of the barnyard. Bush was not yet cornered by his colleagues in the same way as Blair, but unpopularity was threatening to lead his Republican party to congressional defeat and possible loss of a majority of seats.

Senator puts 'secret hold' on bill to open federal records
In an ironic twist, legislation that would open up the murky world of government contracting to public scrutiny has been derailed by a secret parliamentary maneuver.

The database would bring transparency to federal spending and be as simple to use as conducting a Google search.

Ore. sailor faces espionage charges
A sailor accused of taking a Navy laptop loaded with classified information and peddling its contents to a foreign government will face a court-martial, the Navy said Friday.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Ariel J. Weinmann, of Salem, Ore., will face six charges — including three counts of espionage — that were approved by Adm. John B. Nathman, commander of the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk.

The Navy has said Weinmann, who is being held at the brig at Norfolk Naval Air Station, gave classified information related to national defense to an undisclosed foreign government before he destroyed the computer.

Notice how very carefully this article's writer goes out of their way to not disclose for which country Weinmann was allegedly collecting this information and passing it on.

Despite Israel in the recent conflict pushing it right up to the edge militarily against Lebanon in order to provoke Syria into taking a more direct part in supporting its client Hizbollah which, in turn, would give Israel an excuse to attack Syria, the Syrians stood their ground and resisted the temptation to be drawn into the fighting. And, because Syria resisted getting into a fight with Israel, this meant that Iran would not be drawn in to support its ally Syria, which, yet again in turn, meant that the US would not have a legitimate excuse to come in to the fray to support their client, Israel, the end result being that Plan ‘A’, to start an all-defining war against Syria and Iran, just didn’t work. One now has to ask; so what’s Plan ‘B’?

Liquid Bombers Prove: "They Hate Our Freedoms!"

Bush's Weapon of Mass Deception
It is a week since news broke in London about an alleged plot to blow up nine commercial jetliners and there are emerging indicators that Bush and Blair exaggerated the truth about the actual readiness of the so-called plot. And yes, I mean so-called plot. Why would Bush and Blair hype a terrorist threat? A very simple answer. The White House was on notice that Seymour Hersh's story that the Bush Administration encouraged Israel to invade Lebanon as part of a broader scheme to set the stage for war with Iran. Tony Blair, Bush's enabler, went along with the ruse.


 
FLASHBACK: The Crimes of Mena
The newly unearthed papers show the real Seal as far more impressive and well-connected than the character played by Dennis Hopper in a made-for-TV movie some years ago, loosely based on the smuggler's life. The film portrayed the pudgy pilot as a hapless victim, caught in a cross fire between bungling but benign government agencies and Latin drug lords. The truth sprinkled through the documents is a richer - and altogether more sinister - matter of national and individual corruption. It is a tale of massive, socially devastating crime, of what seems to have been an official cover-up to match, and, not least, of the strange reluctance of so- called mainstream American journalism to come to grips with the phenomenon and its ominous implications - even when the documentary evidence had appeared.

Police in Britain find suitcase with bomb parts
Police searching woods for clues in an alleged plot to bomb trans-Atlantic passenger jets have found a suitcase containing components for an improvised explosive device, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.

The BBC quoted an anonymous police source as saying a suitcase holding “everything you would need to make an improvised device” had been uncovered in a stretch of woodland in High Wycombe, 30 miles northwest of London. The wood is near the home of one of two dozen suspects arrested Aug. 10 in connection with the foiled bomb plot.

Oh yeah, "I'm building an improvised device for a terror attack. I've got a shed at the bottom of my garden but I'll bury it in woodland just in case I get caught. Hopefully no-one will see me when I'm burying it."

And right on cue, this story about a 12-year old boy appears. He managed to get on a plane without a passport before the plane's pilot "discovered" him.

Bush Sees No End to War on Terrorism
"America is safer than it has been, yet it is not yet safe," Bush told reporters at the National Counterterrorism Center just outside Washington. "The enemy has got an advantage when it comes to attacking our homeland: They got to be right one time and we've got to be right 100 percent of the time to protect the American people."
Bush sees no end to 'War on Terrorism' because this administration practices 'diplomacy' with all the finesse of a bulldozer flipping a souffle.

Additionally, you have to remember just how profitable these wars are for his 'base' - Companies like Haliburton, et all.

This country isn't any safer than it's been in times past: its citizens are fed fear 24/7, and fear makes people react, not think.

We all need to take a deep breath, and look way beyond the sound bytes on the (non) news shows, and the talking heads on television. These folks are telling the American public precisely what the government wants them to hear. - M. R.

Why the Terror Plots Are False
There are strong reasons to believe that Muslims are not responsible for the recently unveiled terror plots both in Toronto and London. To understand the reasons why these plots are false, one has to begin with himself and think from inside out. I would begin with myself as a Muslim, who shares the beliefs that are attributed to the alleged terrorists, but does not feel compelled to even think about murdering innocent civilians.

Diebold had the game in hand but that game only works when there’s a workable margin. They did what they had to do in Ohio, Florida and elsewhere and they stole another election. The last three elections were stolen and the success of those affairs has begun to spark an international growth industry in rigged elections from Mexico to wherever they are needed by the few at the expense of the many.


 
The "Liquid bomb" plot a smokescreen for a counter-coup in Britain?
There is an increasing body of evidence on both sides of the Atlantic that Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has engaged in a pattern of news manufacturing and illegal activities to hype the "liquid bomb" aviation threat and influence political developments. As WMR reported on Aug. 11, the move that prompted Murdoch, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and George W. Bush to stage a phony terror threat -- namely, the attempted political coup against Blair by members of his own Cabinet and Labor Party -- was based on a Murdoch-approved illegal wiretap by his London-based News of the World royals editor that hacked into the voice and text cell phone messages of three members of Prince Charles' staff.


 
UK made arrests on Washington pressure: Plane attack was not imminent: official
NBC News reported that US and British authorities had a significant disagreement over when to move in on the suspects in the alleged plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners bound for the United States.

A British official said the uk police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner.

In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.

One has to wonder if this was just a distraction to take American eyes away from the agony of Israel's invasion of Lebanon.

And think about that last sentence very carefully. When you are travelling to any foreign country, how do you get on a plane without a passport? - M. R.



 
FEMA Trailers Exhibit Unsafe Levels of Formaldehyde
n May, a public interest group conducted indoor air testing in FEMA-issued trailers in Louisiana and Mississippi to investigate reports from Katrina evacuees experiencing a variety of respiratory problems associated with formaldehyde exposure.[1] These tests revealed that 94 percent of the trailers tested had indoor levels of formaldehyde in excess of levels that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) have identified as triggering adverse health effects in humans.[2] While the EPA and CPSC guidelines identify adverse health impacts at 0.1 ppm, several trailers exhibited formaldehyde levels more than three times above that level. Formaldehyde exposure, even at low levels, can trigger coughing, wheezing, and other respiratory ailments, while continuous exposure to the gas can trigger attacks in asthma sufferers. [3] In addition, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies formaldehyde as a known human carcinogen.[4]
Could this possibly have been the dirty secret that caused FEMA officials to decree that every reporter who interviewed a Katrina survivor had to have a FEMA representative on hand when the interview took place?

FEMA has since relented on this practice, but these people have had insult heaped upon injury in terms of injury in terms of potential illness, brought about by living in these trailers. - M. R.



 
A last desperate gasp to expand the Lebanon war into Syria?

Liquid Bomb Pakistan Link Is False Flag Smoking Gun
Revelations concerning the origins and connections of the alleged liquid bomb terror plot to Pakistan and the 7/7 bombings in London provide a strong indication that the operation, known for months yet deliberately timed for public release, was a synthetic ruse concocted by the Bush/Blair cabal to re-package the flagging war on terror.

FLASHBACK: Ground-Imaging Forensic Radar Exam Of WWII Treblinka Camp
The team carefully examined the entire Treblinka II site, especially the alleged "mass graves" portion, and carried out control examinations of the surrounding area. They found no soil disturbance consistent with the burial of hundreds of thousands of bodies, or even evidence that the ground had ever been disturbed. In addition, Krege and his team found no evidence of individual graves, bone remains, human ashes, or wood ashes.
To go into more detail, normal soil is deposited by natural forces in discreet and easily seen layers, called "strata". You can see this obvious layering in road cuts. This layering is also easily seen on ground penetrating radar.

excavations of any kind, whether for the foundations of a building, tunneling, canals, or mass graves, erases this layered pattern. In order to detect mass graves, one need not actually find human remains. All one needs to do is scan the area and see where the layered pattern stops. That zone, the region where the strata has been removed and then dumped back in all mixed up, shows where massive digging took place.

No such zones were found. None. The underground layers continue undisturbed right through the areas where it is claimed that mass graves existed. - M. R.

British Media must stay silent on suspects
The Government issued a stern warning to the media not to put the probe into the alleged terror plot at risk by publishing information about suspects.

Is an armament sickening U.S. soldiers?
There is something massively wrong with Herbert Reed, though no one is sure what it is. He believes he knows the cause, but he cannot convince anyone caring for him that the military's new favorite weapon has made him terrifyingly sick.

Reed believes depleted uranium has contaminated him and his life. He now walks point in a vitriolic war over the Pentagon's arsenal of it -- thousands of shells and hundreds of tanks coated with the metal that is radioactive, chemically toxic, and nearly twice as dense as lead.

The Pentagon doesn't want to face the fact that depleted uranium kills with equal opportunity.

That means that when our troops get exposed, they sicken and die just as the Iraqis have. - M. R.

Code Red For Republicans
The immediate media narrative is that Bush is right, we need all the eavesdropping and secret prisons, the war on terror is still on. Never forget 9/11. The Repugs will leap on this and beat Democrats over the head with it, and the Democrats will puff out their tiny little chests and say they are all for court martials for civilians and email spying and warrantless executive nuttiness, whatever it takes, let's all get behind Bush. The timing is so exquisite, coming the day after Ned Lamont ate Joe Lieberman's lunch at the primaries, one is tempted to blame Rove. But I think this time the threat was genuine. Terrorists seem to have pro-Republican timing, that's all.

According to knowledgeable sources in the UK and other countries, the Tony Blair government, under siege by a Labor Party revolt, cleverly cooked up a new "terror" scare to avert the public's eyes away from Blair's increasing political woes. British law enforcement; neo-con and intelligence operatives in the United States, Israel, and Britain; and Rupert Murdoch's global media empire cooked up the terrorist plot, liberally borrowing from the failed 1995 "Oplan Bojinka" plot by Pakistan- and Philippines-based terrorist Ramzi Ahmad Yousef to crash 11 trans-Pacific airliners bound from Asia to the United States.

Mercenary Jackpot
While the Bush Administration calls for the immediate disbanding of what it has labeled "private" and "illegal" militias in Lebanon and Iraq, it is pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into its own global private mercenary army tasked with protecting US officials and institutions overseas. The secretive program, which spans at least twenty-seven countries, has been an incredible jackpot for one heavily Republican-connected firm in particular: Blackwater USA. Government records recently obtained by The Nation reveal that the Bush Administration has paid Blackwater more than $320 million since June 2004 to provide "diplomatic security" services globally

British Lose Their Minds
In the back of my mind I worry that this threat might be trumped up in order to divert attention from the disastrous US and British policy (or lack of policy) in Lebanon. More likely, we have an informant in the UK that identified a potential plot that was in the dreaming stage but had not progressed to actual implementation. Rather than act like security professionals, the Brits are acting like panicked nannies. Very sad.

FLASHBACK: Al Qaeda's Chief Of Ops Has Startling Background
There is one detail about Al Qaeda's alleged chief of operations Khalid Shaikh Mohammed that, while reported in the media, never receives the focus it deserves: Mohammed is the uncle of Ramzi Yousef, the reported brains behind the first 1993 terror bombing of the World Trade Center and who has often been "linked" by some sources to the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City in 1995.

There has been widespread belief that Mohammed's nephew, Yousef, may have been a secret asset of Israel's intelligence service, the Mossad. In addition, it is a most uncomfortable fact that Yousef worked closely with a reported Mossad asset, Ahmad Ajaj, in the first bombing of the World Trade Center.

So, this is starting to unravel into another Mossad operation. - M. R.

Has Rove been guiding the Lieberman campaign all along?'
Lieberman's statements from the beginning have made it clear that, in his mind, any dissent from Bush's war policy constitutes a) "weakness on national defense," b) is a clear sign that Democrats "lack national security" credibility, and c) means that Dems "have yielded to the extremists" (despite the fact that new polls reveal those "extremists" agree with 60% of all Americans about the war).

Democrats are "extremist "and "weak on national security?" That's straight out of the Rove playbook.

The war lovers and child massacre apologists at Ynet News and obvious government psyop faux right wing cut-out alternative news site 'Little Green Footballs' (LGF) have taken the fact that a Reuters photographer, Adnan Hajj, blatantly "cloned" smoke in an image of an Israeli bombing in Lebanon to not-so-subtly suggest that all of Reuters images from Lebanon might be faked and therefore that we should all ignore Israeli massacres in Lebanon.

Hizbollah fighter tells Israel he trained in Iran
A Hizbollah fighter captured by Israel has told interrogators he received training in Iran and arrived there on a flight from Syria, a tape of the interrogation released by the Israeli army showed on Monday.
As the voltage increased, the man also confessed to shooting down Colombia, Flooding New Orleans, and killing Presidents John F. Kennedy & Abraham Lincoln. - M. R.

Iran's plot to mine uranium in Africa
A United Nations report, dated July 18, said there was “no doubt” that a huge shipment of smuggled uranium 238, uncovered by customs officials in Tanzania, was transported from the Lubumbashi mines in the Congo.
This is another "Yellow cake" deception, and here is why. Uranium coming out of the mines is a mixture of many different isotopes. It cannot be called Uranium 23X until after refinement. As a side note, Uranium 238 is the most common form of uranium AND THE LEAST USABLE FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. Uranium 238 is often called "depleted uranium" because Uranium 238 is what is left over after the Uranium 235 has been extracted. Therefore, if Iran is shipping Uranium 238 from Africa, it is not for a weapons program. - M. R.

This may be the reason for him being held in secret for the last 4 months, as the US didn't want the public to know.

Hizbullah rockets cannot be fired from buildings
The type of missiles being fired by Hizbullah at Israeli cities cannot be fired from within houses, mosques, hospitals or even UN facilities as has been suggested by the IDF. Due to the massive "back-blast" caused by the rocket launchers of these missiles, they can only be fired from open ground. To fire them from within a building would result in the instant death of the missile crew and probable destruction of the missile before launch. Most of the missiles are truck-mounted and are fired - on open ground - from the backs of flat-bedded trucks or larger four-wheel-drive vehicles.


 
Missile Mystery: Hezbollah's Iranian Nur Missile with English Language Markings
The mystery is not that Hezbollah has sophisticated weapons produced by Iran. The mystery is that this missile was marked in such a way as to make it appear of British and/or American origin.


 
Pentagon silent on inquiry into Cunningham contracts
This week, the Pentagon announced that it would not renew one contract related to the scandal. But officials have been tight-lipped about the status of other taxpayer-funded work that may have been tainted, including a secret counterintelligence program. In fact, although several other Defense Department public affairs personnel and a congressional press aide have said in the past that an investigation into the Cunningham-linked contracts was being conducted, the inspector general's spokesman said yesterday that “as a matter of policy, we do not confirm or deny the existence of ongoing investigations.”

Hamas, Son of Israel
Amid all the howls of pain and gnashing of teeth over the triumph of Hamas in the Palestinian elections, one fact remains relatively obscure, albeit highly relevant: Israel did much to launch Hamas as an effective force in the occupied territories. If ever there was a clear case of "blowback," then this is it.

The FBI's wrecking of Jean Seberg's career.
Jean Seberg was one of a group of several prominent celebrities, among them John Lennon, Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave, who, in exercising their democratic birthright to free speech found themselves incurring the wrath of the United States authorities. Seberg, vocal in her support of the Black Panther Party, who fought racial prejudice in the wake of the assassination of Martin Luther King, was singled out for particular attention from notorious FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, who considered her to be a threat to the American apple pie way of life and everything. Seberg, being a movie star and hence presumably wielding some supreme executive influence over western cultural values, was deemed so sufficiant a danger to national security (whatever that means), that on 23rd April 1970, Hoover issued orders that she be "neutralised" under the FBI's aptly named Counter Intelligence Programme (COINTELPRO).

In response to this order, the above request was made to Hoover by FBI SAC Richard W. Held on 27th April 1970. Hoover granted permission for Held to plant the story in the Los Angeles Times, from where it was syndicated across the US. Many believe the subsequent backlash of the right-wing press so traumatised Jean Seberg, who was seven months pregnant at the time, that it significantly contributed to her miscarriage in May 1970. Although at the time Seberg gave as good as she got, totally humilating the rumour mongers when she presented the press with the body of her dead white child, no one could be in any doubt that the episode took a toll on her emotional well being. Eventually Jean Seberg paid with her life, and the world paid with her loss.

This page has even more of the original documents regarding the FBI's plot to destroy the career of actress Jean Seberg, by planting a story with LA Times Gossip Columnist Joyce Haber that she was pregnant via an adulterous affair with one of the Black Panthers.

Zionists' organized efforts to manipulate public opinion on the Internet
The Israeli government's Foreign Ministry is involved in efforts to influence public opinion on the Internet. Israel's Foreign Ministry orders Internet propagandists, so called "trainee diplomats," to skew online polls and public forums to conform with the Israeli line. This is an organized effort, using "special 'megaphone' software," to alert "hundreds of thousands of Jewish activists" so they can manipulate Internet websites and chatrooms to conform with the slant that already permeates mainstream media.

Yeah, right: the outcome of 'studies' favorable to the government's position tends to be slanted toward the outcome the government wants.

It's the oldest trick in the book, dating back to Roman times; creating the enemies you need.


 
Al-Qaeda warns it will not stand idly by
Al-Qaeda's No. 2 leader warned in a new taped message Thursday the terrorist group would not stand idly by while “these [Israeli] shells burn our brothers” in Lebanon and Gaza.
Yeah. Right. "Al Qaeda" (nudge nudge wink wink).

Okay, let's take a look.

2001 - Afghanistan invaded.
Reaction from the Taliban - attempt to repel invaders.
Reaction from "al Qaeda" - none.

2003 - Iraq invaded.
Reaction from Iraqi regime - try to repel invaders.
Reaction from "al Qaeda" - bomb the shit out of Iraq following the invasion.

2006 - Israel starts attacks on Palestinians on 25 June and starts attacks on Lebanon on 13 July.
Reaction from Palestinians and Hezbollah - try to repel invaders.
Reaction from "al Qaeda" - none.

Let's take a look at the supposed setup of "al Qaeda's sleeper cells": "The way these folks work, they can go the logistics planning, to get the equipment they need and do the surveillance. Al Qaeda-trained people do a tremendous amount of surveillance to find the right targets, the right time of day or whatever. But then, you can put all those plans and equipment on the shelf, and then with one phone call, in as little as 24 hours, execute those plans."

Can you possibly tell me that these sleeper cells do not react to world events?

It has taken over a month for "al Qaeda" to do anything about Israel's offensives, and then all they've done is release a video. Have they lost all of the phone numbers of their "sleeper cells"?

"al Qaeda" is bullshit.

Its actions (or lack of) on behalf of its "Muslim brothers" proves it.

The only time it makes an appearance is when it is convenient for Western politicians.

If something goes "bang" in the near future it will do nothing but distract the media from Israel's actions, and it would probably justify the invasions of Syria and Iran.

Once again, "al Qaeda's" actions would do nothing but benefit Western politicians.

He plans to sue the USA Gov. for his illegal detention and torture there.

FBI paid key terror informants $56,000
The FBI paid almost $56,000 to two confidential informants who are key to the case against seven men accused of being involved in a terrorist plot to blow up the Sears Tower and other targets.
This seems like a good time to remind people how the FBI had a paid informant inside the "terrorist gang" that bombed the World Trade Towers in 1993. The FBI's informant, Emad Salem, asked for permission to sabotage the bomb so that it could not explode. The FBI refused! - M. R.


 
Retired Air Force Col: They lied to us about the war and about 9/11 itself
As other speakers have said, they knew the American people wouldn’t stand for it, and they said so in their documents, and they said, unless there’s that new Pearl Harbor. Well 9/11 did supply that. And we’ve been lied to not only about the war, but about 9/11 itself.


 
Pentagon declares war on internet combat videos
The Pentagon is asking US soldiers in Iraq to stop posting private combat videos on to the internet amid fears that they could be regarded as anti-Arab.

Many of the digital clips feature explosions, gunfire and even dead bodies, with the images often set to a soundtrack of rock ballads, rap or heavy metal music.

The Pentagon does not want the world - particularly in the US - to see the war as their soldiers see it.

During Hitler's reign, he allowed almost all kinds of American and Western films and books to be seen by the German public, as he thought such material demonstrated moral and cultural decay.

However, there was one film that was banned in Hitler's Germany, and that was "Gone with the Wind", as it depicted war in all its graphic, ugly brutality. - M. R.

Cunningham's case puts a stark spotlight on the oversight of classified — or "black" — budgets. Unlike legislation dealing with social and economic issues, intelligence bills and parts of defense bills are written in private, in the name of national security.

Alan Dershowitz argues today that all those civilians being killed in Lebanon may not really be civilians after all:

Once again, truth is the first casualty of war
 


 
The Destabilization of Lebanon and assassination of Rafik Hariri
After the black flag assassination of Rafik Hariri on February 14, 2005, Bush blamed Syria, because Syria controlled Lebanon. Without one single shred of evidence, Neo-conservative politicians and a compliant US media accused Syria in the matter of Hariri's death. Whether Syria had done it or not, Bush's Neo-conservatives wanted Damascus to pay a heavy price for Hariri's murder. But according to IRNA (the Iranian state news agency) one of Hariri's consultants, Mustafa al-Naser, stated that the "assassination of Hariri is the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad's job, aimed at creating political tension in Lebanon". An array of Arab Middle East analysts, as well as the Lebanese government, point out that the blast was eerily similar to previous Israeli-orchestrated bombings against former Palestinian leaders.

Second, any reports of an attack on a ship at sea go through that ships's radio room, presumably under orders of the Captain.

Two former Pentagon officials, including an acting secretary of the Navy, have been accused of scheming with a banned American contractor to get lucrative rebuilding contracts in Iraq, The Associated Press has learned.

The consequences for America, Israel and the Middle East will be disastrous, but as long as Washington is in thrall to Zionist paranoia, nothing can be done about it.

FLASHBACK: THE HIDDEN ANTHRAX LETTERS SUSPECT
The time has come to seriously consider that the American people are being tricked into a war. Such things are hardly new. Recently declassified documents prove beyond al doubt that Pearl Harbor was not only NOT a surprise, but was the desired result of an 8 step ONI plan written by Arthur H. McCollum and implemented by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, in order to trick the people of the United States into a war against Hitler, via the back door of Japan. And according to Victor Ostrovsky, a former Mossad agent, the bombing of Libya during the Reagan administration was the result of a trick played by the Mossad in which a radio transmitter was smuggled into Tripoli and used to create fake radio messages for the US to intercept. The motto of the Mossad is, "By way of deception, thou shalt do war".

America Haters
Please stop for one minute and reflect on the following question: Who are the true patriots:

Those who murder innocent Americans and falsely blame it on others and who intentionally twist intelligence in order to deceive the people into unnecessary wars?

or

Those who seek to expose such practices, and to prevent the spilling of more innocent American blood?



 
Two Navy ships bound for Lebanon
 
This might be a good time to recall the USS Liberty incident, in which Israel attacked the US ship using unmarked boats and planes. Had the ship sunk without survivors (the Israelis machine-gunned life rafts when the crew attempted to abandon ship), the plan was to frame Egypt for the sinking to trick the US into the war on Israel's side.

So, to you "Limeys", I wish you good luck and make sure those British flags are clearly in view at all times! - M. R.



 
BEWARE OF FALSE FLAG WAR PROVOCATIONS PLANNED WITH CONNIVANCE OF CHENEY
How might the Israelis and their Bush-Cheney allies escalate to a Middle East regional war? A linear scenario is that, after further bombardment of Israel by rockets allegedly made in Iran and allegedly delivered with the connivance of Syria, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) lashes out at Damascus and Teheran. Syrian and Iranian retaliatory measures would then be seized upon by the Bush-Cheney regime as a pretext for US entry into the war. Here the US would be openly dragged into war as the tail of the Israeli dog. But this is a deeply flawed scenario, sure to generate huge waves of resentment against the Israelis and their US partners as the body bags begin to come home.


 
TheStar.com - Wildly disproportionate attack on Lebanon seems like pretext to confront Iran, says Linda McQuaig
As Israeli firepower rained down on Lebanon last week, pundits here in the West wasted no time pinning the blame on — Iran.

"Iran and its radical allies are pushing toward war," wrote Washington Post columnist David Ignatius.

Is it really Iran that is pushing for war? Think about it. Why would Iran want to provoke a war with Israel and the U.S. — both heavily armed nuclear powers — when it has no nuclear weapons itself?



 
US intelligence ties to Mumbai 7/11
What the mainstream press fails to report is the direct connection between the terrorist groups they name, and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) -- a virtual branch of the American CIA. This in turn leads back to the same (alleged “al-Qaeda”) apparatus also responsible for the Bush administration’s 9/11 and other post-9/11 terror events.

TWA Flight 800 Federal Law Suit for ‘missing evidence’ Filed Today
One wreckage item in particular was described as possibly being the “smoking gun” by FIRO Chairman Dr. Tom Stalcup. The wreckage exited Flight 800’s airframe at apparent supersonic speeds and landed about a half mile closer to JFK airport than any other piece of wreckage. The Navy recovered it, but it never made it to the reconstruction hangar.
When TWA 800 exploded, radar tracked an object departing the scene of the disaster at supersonic speeds, traveling at right angles to the path of the 747. The US Navy recovered the object, yet that object was never turned over to the NTSB reconstruction hanger. Why? - M. R.

Are you stupid enough to believe one word from Bush & Cheney?
After years of Bush manure, who's naïve enough to believe any of the myriad lies from the White House —
• that the Bush-Cheney administration had no advance warning of a terrorist plot against America in the summer of 2001
• that nobody anticipated the breech of the levees in New Orleans
• that Saddam Hussein was connected to 9/11 (alternating with lies that nobody ever said that)
• that Congressmen and Senators have access to the same intelligence the White House sees
• that "the smoking gun could come in the form of a mushroom cloud"
• that Social Security is nearing a meltdown
• that anyone who leaks a CIA agent's identity would be fired from this administration
• that "We do not engage in torture"
• that "Leave No Child Behind" has accomplished anything worthwhile
• that Bush-Cheney tax cuts helped anyone but the fabulously wealthy
• that the new prescription drug program helps seniors a fraction as much as it helps the pharmaceutical companies
• that Don Rumsfeld is doing a fine job
• that the prisoners on Guantanamo aren't prisoners, or that they were captured on the battlefield
• that the US has disrupted "at least ten" terrorist plots against America
• that seemingly every Muslim captured or killed is the number three man in al Qaeda
• that warrantless monitoring of your every phone call, email, and bank transaction has something to do with an alleged war on terror
• that reporting on Bush-Cheney lawbreaking imperils national security
• that the Clean Air Act cleans the air
• on and on and on
• lies and lies and more lies
• and then, more lies.

Militants deny India train bombings
But two of the main Islamic militant groups in the Himalayan region - Lashkar-e-Tayyaba and Hezb-ul-Mujahedeen - said in separate statements that they had nothing to do with the Mumbai bombings, or a series of grenade attacks in Kashmir on Tuesday that killed eight people.
Now, stop and think for a moment. The whole point of terror is to make a political statement. There is no purpose to an act of terror that does not have such a statement made, and so far, nobody has made any such statement.


 
Questions on the Mumbai Atrocity
Terrorism is defined as “The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons” [American Heritage Dictionary]. What was the “ideological or political reason”?

And as always...Cui bono?

Fateful, because this assertion turned out to have been based not on mistaken intelligence, or wrongly interpreted data, but on an outright fabrication: the now-infamous Niger uranium forgeries.

Chemical warfare: Inside Britain's toxic house of horrors
Servicemen were deliberately subjected to lethal doses of poison in secret tests atPorton Down, an official report will admit this week.

The long-delayed "historical survey" of Porton Down finds that at least five sets of trials "may not have met the ethical standards required," The Independent on Sunday has learnt. They include one trial in which drops of a poison were placed on the skin of volunteers at a dosage level believed at the time to be fatal.

VA laptop sold from back of a truck
We’re talking about the computer and hard drive that were stolen from a Department of Veterans Affairs employee in May, an incident that made headlines because the hardware contained private information on 26.5 million veterans and current GIs. Last week, VA chief Jim Nicholson announced in dramatic fashion that the prodigal computer had been found, but details about the return were sparing.
Are these guys kidding? Let's see.... some dude happens to have a friend in the Park Police and happens to buy this laptop off the back of a truck (iow, a guy with law enforcement ties is buying known stolen equipment)... happens to buy both components... then happens to magically discover the flier with the serial numbers (and of course, the reward details) and turns it in. Whatta guy!!

Here's my guess. some enterprising dude had the serial numbers in hand, went shopping at as many black market sales he could, and hoped he could stumble upon the $50K laptop. THAT I would believe.

Of course, one might also hope our intrepid FBI dudes would be attending all these sales with the same goal in mind... and gee whiz, they could save the $50K reward by finding it themselves. [Of course, they're still trying to figure out how to make Osama bin Laden part of the 9/11 lie. 5 years, still nadda.]

So, it should come as no surprise that HAMAS itself was a creation of Shin Bet, an Israeli intelligence service, which created and funded HAMAS as a bogus opposition group to prevent Arafat from unifying Palestine.

This is why HAMAS can be counted on to set off a bombing or a kidnapping when Israel most needs one. - M. R.

Wandering Jew - Propaganda for the Insipid
That is why I jumped at my grandfather’s invitation to attend the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) policy conference in Washington D.C., where I could join more than 1,000 students and 4,000 adults in discussing the future of Israel. I returned from the conference, however, feeling manipulated, disturbed and disgusted with a great deal of what I witnessed there.
I relinked this article from Liberty Forum because the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles has removed this article from their website following its linking from sites such as WRH.

The article paints a picture of the AIPAC conference in which attendees are bombarded with the message that Israel is under imminent danger from all fronts.

This raises the possibility of an entire nation suffering group paranoid delusions, which manifest as self-fulfilling prophecies. Imagine an annoying person always following you around, touching you, and demanding, "You don't like me, do you? You don't like me. Right? You don't like me." After a while, one gets tired of trying to prove the opposite, gives up, and shouts in exasperation, "You're right. I don't like you, get away from me!", only to have the annoying one scream, "Ah HA, I was RIGHT! You DON'T like me!" - M. R.

This was a Karl Rove style ‘Scare ‘Em Into Voting for you” racket like the “Red Terrorist Alerts” of a few years ago that, strangely enough, <>always<> cropped up at election time. The Canadian caper was so silly it died aborning. Next we have the article below claiming, falsely, that we have discovered the WMDs at last! (Three years ago of course but Our Clever Leaders kept it quiet until before election time) and now the Blowing Up of the Sears Tower, again, just before election time. We can now expect a solemn Gonzales, surrounded by Men in Suits, giving a pre-emptive press conference on CNN to alert all of America to the stunning news and telling them that He, Alberto the Wetback, is Always Vigilant and Protecting America!

You ought to hear the nasty, sarcastic comments around our offices about such stupid fictions!



 
Indictment reveals little hard evidence of terrorist plot
 
The guy paying the "Miami 7" to act like terrorists was an FBI informant, setting them up for a headline-making arrest. - M. R.


 
Who is Melvin Lattimore?
Lattimore was an FBI provocateur and informant who, along with the Siddiqys and Chafti helped and encourage McVeigh in OKC carry out the OKC bombing. Lattimore’s 1993 WTC bombing associates, the Siddiqys and Chafti, were with McVeigh in OKC moments before the OKC bombing. The witness to this, Debbie Burdick, was threatened to not talk to the press or to defense attorneys by FBI agent Odom out of Denver during and after the OKC bombing trials while Odom and FBI agent Floyd Zimms were working for DOJ prosecutors in Denver. FBI and CIA agent Floyd Zimms (wife was an HW Bush Republican delegate) arranged for the release of the Siddiqys and Chafti after they were arrested on the day of the OKC bombing. The FBI’s former OKC bombing Inspector, Danny Defenbaugh, hid the FBI 302 reports of the arrests of the Siddiqy’s and Chafti until the reports were identified in his Dallas FBI office (FBI SAC Dallas) in January 2001.


 
Stay the Course, Cut and Run, With Us or With the Terrorists, Mushroom Cloud, Mission Accomplished, etc...
Stay the Course? What course? My God the bUSH administration has never established a course. WMD was the original "course" wasn't it?, Well there wasn't any. "Mission Accomplished", oops, that wasn't really the "Course", it was the fight against tyranny. That's right, that's the ticket, that's what it really was..... Saddam captured, "Mission Accomplished" Oops, now its the "GWOT", (Global War on Terror), "Stay the Course". Re Justify. Rename. Republican Mantra. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.....

Sears Tower "Terrorists" Set Up?: Master G.H.G. Athea, Suspect's Friend: "Someone along the line offered to him some funds to do whatever he wanted to do if that's what he wanted to do. As far as some subversive work. And said they would give him whatever he needed."
ANDREWS: So somebody had approached him to give him money to blow up buildings?

ATHEA: To do whatever he wanted to do. But that was far from his mind. So he had no desire to interact with these men to accept anything they had to offer.

Trust us! There really IS a terrorist threat! No fooling!
The plot was one of three previously unknown al Qaeda hijack plots disrupted before they could be carried out, according to a Department of Homeland Security report obtained by ABC News.
"Yes, we saved the nation and earned our pay and your trust, and the proof is right here on this paper." Yessirree bob, I'll bet you're sorry now for all those bad things you said about us while we groped your daughter at the airport!" -- Official White Horse Souse - M. R.

Jihadist video aimed at Muslim youth
CBC News has obtained a copy of a video of one of the suspects in the Toronto bombing plot that was allegedly handed out in the parking lot of a local mosque.
The parking lot???

GOP Kills Senate Bill to Police Halliburton
In an effort to stop companies like Halliburton and its subsidiaries from cheating our troops and stealing from Americans, Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND), introduced S.AMDT.4230 and attached it to the Defense Authorization bill currently being debated in the Senate. The bill was intended to improve contracting "by eliminating fraud and abuse and improving competition in contracting and procurement."

Dorgan's bill -- cosponsored by 17 Democrats and called the Honest Leadership and Accountability in Contracting Act of 2006 -- was tabled by a roll call vote of 55-43, effectively rejecting the amendment. Every single Senate Republican voted against the measure to make the contracting process honest and impose penalties on those who break the law.

It's always comforting knowing who this Administraiton is REALLY working for. - M. R.


 
Did Author Get It Wrong on Terror Story?
Officials say author Ron Suskind, in "The One Percent Doctrine," got names confused when he reported that the mastermind of last year's London bombings, Mohammad Siddique Khan, had contacts in the United States, had been placed on a no-fly list and was prevented from boarding a plane to the United States in 2003.


 
Police Debate if London Plotters Were Suicide Bombers, or Dupes
 
"Hey, you, Muslim guys, c'mere. We're having this terror drill, see, and we wanna hire you to pretend to be terrorists, and all you have to do is take these bombs, I mean FAKE bombs, yeah, that's it FAKE bombs, into ... TAKE IT EASY WITH THAT THING, DAMMIT! Okay, okay, okay, okay, everyone calm down. I'm under a lot of stress right now. Anyway here's the deal. We will pay you each 1000 pounds just to carry these into the train station and ride the train, just to see how far you get before the guards catch you, okay? Ummmm... I'll pay you when you get back." - M. R.


 
Another hate-crime hoax
 
Folks, go back and re-read the history of the Black Panther Coloring Book to see what this is really all about.

Then consider this. Nobody wants to emulate the Nazis, because the Nazis LOST THE #$%^ WAR! The only people playing NAZI are working for the CIA and Mossad trying to use that historical monster to coerce you into agreeing to agendas you otherwise would not support. - M. R.



 
Tanker Inquiry Finds Rumsfeld's Attention Was Elsewhere
It was a bumpy start to an odd interview, as Rumsfeld cited poor memory, loose office procedures, and a general distraction with "the wars" in Iraq and Afghanistan to explain why he was unsure how his department came to nearly squander $30 billion leasing several hundred new tanker aircraft that its own experts had decided were not needed.
The Clinton, under oath, "I can't remember" defense strikes again. - M. R.


 
Safavian Guilty of Lying, Obstruction of Justice
David H. Safavian, a former Bush administration official with close ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, was found guilty today in federal court of four of five felony charges against him in connection with the Abramoff corruption and influence-peddling scandal.

Group claims it kidnapped U.S. soldiers
An umbrella group linked to al-Qaida in Iraq claimed Monday that it had kidnapped two American soldiers reported missing south of Baghdad, where 8,000 Iraqi and U.S. troops were conducting a massive search.
An "umbrella group". Right.

This stinks of another false-flag execution, with all the gore on network TV, to try to trick Americans back into supporting the war in Iraq/Iran/This-space-available by waving bloody heads at them. - M. R.



 
Flight of Capital
At least among those with a mind for such things, it's fairly well-remembered that on September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld made the shocking announcement that the Pentagon "couldn't track" $2.3 trillion of its transactions. "Iroquois" observes, "What's interesting to me is that he made his press release on a Monday. In DC, I always see bad news given on a Friday, usually late in the afternoon on Friday. The exception, of course, would be when someone happens to know that there is a far bigger story coming out."

US chiefs honoured in secret by Britain
The government has been secretly awarding honours to senior figures in the US military and foreign businessmen with lucrative public sector contracts. The Observer has obtained a Foreign Office list detailing all non-British citizens who have been awarded honours since 2003 - the first time the complete three-year dossier has been released.
War's so great for business! That's why certain elements just seem to be looking for war without end on this planet. - M. R.


 
Secrecy in court shuts out defense
Witnesses testified under assumed names, the public was barred from the courtroom, and part of the hearing was held in the judge's chambers, with defense lawyers shut out


 
Pardon talk for Libby begins
By demanding sensitive, sometimes embarrassing materials, some say, Libby appears to be goading the White House into issuing a pardon. Libby's spokeswoman did not respond to questions about a pardon
Translation: if you lie and then blackmail an Administration into giving you a pardon after you've been indicted, that's just business as usual in Washington.

How much longer can this country afford 'business a s usual'? - M. R.

"It has proven to be a tool on our side to sort of unite Conservatives and have a healthy intra-movement dialogue," Rove explained. "But it’s essentially been something that has helped us gain in influence and broaden our appeal."
Which is why President Bush's poll numbers are so high! - M. R.

Get Out Your Tinfoil Hats
Basically, Netvocates is an organization that sends people out to web logs to post propoganda in comments. They appear to be tied to conservatives and there appears to be a tie to townhall.com, the ultra-right-wing web site.


 
Dangerous Mind
After last week's killing of terrorist chieftain Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (or someone just like him) in Iraq, remembrances of his most celebrated alleged victim surfaced briefly in the press: Nicholas Berg, the young American businessman whose horrific beheading was publicized in a video fortuitously released a few days after the first revelations of torture by U.S. soldiers at Abu Ghraib.

It was this video -- which featured five surprisingly chubby terrorists, masked, one wearing a gold ring forbidden by extremist Islam, another reading in halting Arabic -- that made Zarqawi the Pentagon poster boy for the insurgency. Pentagon documents unearthed by The Washington Post this April revealed that the elevation of Zarqawi's profile was a deliberate, multimillion-dollar propaganda campaign aimed at the U.S. people to foment the lie that the insurgency was largely an al-Qaida terrorist operation, not a native rebellion against the occupation. As one Pentagon general put it: "The Zarqawi Psy-Op program is the most successful information campaign to date." One can only hope that the timely beheading of Nicholas Berg was not part of this "information campaign."

Depleted Uranium - An American War Crime That Has No End
Since 1991, the United States has staged four wars using depleted uranium weaponry, illegal under all international treaties, conventions and agreements, as well as under US military law.

The vast majority of servicemen and women in the U.S. military, and likely in the armed forces of other countries which are developing or have obtained depleted uranium munitions, are unaware of the use and dangers of depleted uranium munitions, or of the protective clothing and procedures which can minimize or prevent serious short-term exposures.

Think about how expendible this government must consider its own soldiers who are sent on missions with not a clue about this.

Any individuals going to serve in the middle east needs to seriously think about having eggs or sperm frozen before they deploy to prevent problems if they are considering having a family at some point. - M. R.

Lawsuit: CIA defines who's a news outlet
The CIA has adopted internal rules allowing it to define what constitutes a news organization and what doesn't, a Washington-based research group contended in a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday.

The lawsuit by the National Security Archive, which operates the largest non-governmental library of declassified documents, says the spy agency has begun charging illegal search and duplication fees under the federal Freedom of Information Act.

Translation: unless you have a great deal of money, you won't be able to request info from the Archive on a FOIA. This of course limits private citizens' access to these Archives, which is precisely the design intent. - M. R.


 
Congress keeps itself, public in the dark on surveillance
With its wiretapping of international phone calls and collecting a database of domestic phone records, the Bush administration is busy watching for evildoers.
The problem is, this is not really about spying on 'evildoers': it's about spying on everyone to get them both accustomed to 24/7 surveillance. Also, it's to make people afraid to talk to each other if their views differ from those of the administration. - M. R.


 
Federal Gov't Sues State Officials -
The New Jersey attorney general and other state officials are being sued by the federal government to end their further inquiries on the extent of telephone firms' participation with the National Security Agency (NSA).The AP reports that the filing in U.S. District Court in Trenton, N.J., is the latest effort by federal authorities to halt legal proceedings aimed at revealing whether and how often AT and T, Verizon and other phone companies have provided customer records to the NSA without a court order.

George Bush's War on Language
One of the less noted aspects of the Bush Administration's 'War on Terror' is the government's simultaneous War on Language, a calculated use of Orwellian double speak. Post 9-11, the invasion of other countries became a 'preemptive strike', the capture and torture of civilians 'extraordinary rendition'. A sign on the front of the US prison in Guantanamo Bay reads 'Honor Bound to Defend Freedom'. Small comfort to the 460 'unlawful combatants' who after four years still languish inside, without any access to basic human rights.

Another day of distractions
"I think arguably over the last several years, no single person on this planet has had the blood of more innocent men, women and children on his hands than Zarqawi."

NSA blocking Whistleblower fro telling Committee about shocking, illegal activities
CongressDaily also reports that House Government Reform National Security Subcommittee, through its Chairman Christopher Shays (R-CT) and ranking member Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), is seeking to interview Tice, but the NSA is resisting.
Move along folks, absolutely nothing to see here. - M. R.


 

June 12, 2006

NSA Blocking Whistleblower From Telling Committee About Shocking, Illegal Activities
Tice said his information is different from the terrorist surveillance program that President Bush acknowledged in December and from news accounts last month that the NSA has been secretly collecting phone call records of millions of Americans. Because he worked on special access programs, however, it has not been clear on Capitol Hill which committees have jurisdiction to debrief him. Shays and Kucinich gave the NSA until Friday to explain any legal reason why they cannot interview him. But that deadline passed without a response, and a subcommittee aide today called the missed deadline troubling.

Israel calls killing of beachgoers a "work accident".
 
I got a lot of emails about a joke I put in this space earlier, and I wondered just how many of these writers had bothered to send email to Israel about the killing, and about calling these murders a "work accident".

I am getting tired of people being so worried about how Israel's feelings might get hurt when Israel does not have the courtesy to return the favor. This brainwashing to always be in guard that one not say or do anything to hurt Israel's feelings is just conditioning, a device to permanently skew the socio-political environment to favor a particular agenda.

If you wrote to me to complain about the joke, but DIDN'T write Israel to complain about the murders, and about the callousness of calling the murders a "work accident", then you are part of the problem. - M. R.



 
The Columbine Massacre Unravels
Columbine has never made any sense. On a close examination of eyewitnesses, and events, one can easily see that there were at least seven people involved, and maybe a third shooter.

Basically, there were 100 bombs found that day, and Klebold and Harris didnt' bring them in alone. And the fact that an eyewitness said he saw two cars, with seven kids, at the school early that morning confirms there were accessories to the massacre.

There was a third shooter identified to the police, who was strangely released without being booked. - M. R.

Appeals Court Sides With White House on Wiretaps
Companies that provide Web-based telecommunications services must allow wiretapping by law enforcement officials, a federal appeals court ruled yesterday.

The ruling upholds a Federal Communications Commission decision that companies such as Vonage Holdings Corp., the country's largest provider of Internet phone service, are under the same legal obligation as telephone companies. The requirement for a wiretap-compatible system could mean higher expenses for broadband service companies, and it marks the further spread of regulation into Internet phone services.

We might as well fire Congress and the Judiciary: they seem to have become nothing but mere rubber stamps for this administration. And think of the cost savings! - M. R.


 
Women's clothing found in Zarqawi house
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was accompanied by women who wore skimpy night clothing, and read magazines on current affairs and militant propaganda, an inspection of the house he was killed in showed on Saturday.
Between that and the tattoos, this man does not sound like a fanatical Muslim, does he? - M. R.


 
Iraqi raises questions on al-Zarqawi death
Iraq - U.S. officials have altered their account of the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, saying he was alive and partly conscious after bombs destroyed his hideout, and an Iraqi man raised fresh questions Saturday about the events surrounding the end of Iraq's most-wanted militant. ADVERTISEMENT

The man, who lived near the scene of the bombing, claimed in an interview with AP Television News to have seen U.S. soldiers beating an injured man resembling al-Zarqawi until blood flowed from the man's nose.

Now then, ask yourself this. If the man they caught was the real Zarqawi, and they caught him alive, WHY WOULD THE US FORCES KILL HIM?

Or is it more likely that the man passed off as Zarqawi for the last several months was a phony, and had to be killed rather than risk exposure during interrogation? - M. R.

TSA tries to classify report
Air marshal officials tried to classify a House Judiciary Committee report that criticized agency policies as endangering national security and denied that those procedures still existed, a point disputed by several of the air marshals who testified to the panel's investigators.

Specter 'compromise' gives Bush amnesty for wiretaps Post: Specter 'compromise' gives Bush amnesty for wiretaps
Sen. Arlen Specter's approach modifies his earlier position that the NSA eavesdropping program, which targets international telephone calls and e-mails in which one party is suspected of links to terrorists, must be subject to supervision by the secret court set up under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

Another part of the Specter bill would grant blanket amnesty to anyone who authorized warrantless surveillance under presidential authority, a provision that seems to ensure that no one would be held criminally liable if the current program is found illegal under present law.

No oversight, no rules - how wonderful. With this proposal, very much like the old 'Code Napoleon' in Europe, every citizen is now guilty until proven innocent, and no one, in the executive branch of government, can be held accountable for their actions. Did I fall asleep and wake up in the wrong country this morning? - M. R.

Congress to hold hearings into OKC bombing
In what some on Capitol Hill are calling a surprising decision, U.S. Rep. Henry Hyde has given the nod for hearings into the long-debated question of whether those responsible for the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building had help from any foreign source.
Ooooh, lemme guess. Iran? - M. R.


 
FBI confidential informant also said to be provocateur
According to activists from Des Moines, Philadelphia, Miami, Sacramento, and other locations, a young woman named "Anna" allegedly infiltrated peace and justice rallies and anarchist meetings, and even attempted to join protests against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the DNC's national convention last year as a paid FBI confidential "informant." Activists say that she has tried to provoke conflict at various advocacy events and violent incidents with police to get people arrested. In other words, Anna is not just an informant, she may be a provocateur.

Cheney's Office Declares Exemption from Secrecy Oversight
Open-government advocates say Cheney’s refusal to divulge even basic information about classification activities reflects an alarming pattern of broadening executive privilege while narrowing public accountability.

Though not the only government entity to shrug off the reporting duties, Cheney’s office is unique in that it has actually issued a public justification for its non-compliance. Cheney’s office argued on Monday that its dual role in the federal government places it above the reporting mandate.

It's so comforting to realize that this Administration believes itself completely above the laws of the land.

And if the government opts for "selective observation" of this country's laws, why can't its citizens? We can call it "The Cheney Rationale".

Stooping to New Lows to Sabotage the Antiwar Movement
I asked her why there was no mention of the war. I pointed out that a clear and ever growing majority of voters were for that. And I informed her that Karl Rove essentially conceded that the war was Bush's Achilles heel. So if MoveOn wanted to defeat the Bushies, why not raise the war? Silence came over her. She then said, as if recalling something, that opposition to the war was "negative" and we had to have a "positive" agenda. I asked whether "Bring all the troops home now. Peace now." would amount to a "positive agenda." Silence. She did call the national office for me, but they had nothing to say in response.
Another "phlog?"

The warhawks' plans to perpetuate the Mideast conquest seem to be to hijack the Democrats the way they hijacked the GOP so that once again, there is no pro-peace choice available in November.

The necessary step is for EVERY VOTER to write into the campaign headquarters of every candidate and state flat out that opposition to the war is THE issue in November; that make-issues like gay marriage will not distract the public from ending the war.

The pro-war politicians of BOTH parties must be shown the door. Hard enough to bounce. Twice. - M. R.



 
The Toronto 17
It will be entertaining to watch the case against the 17 ‘terrorist’ suspects arrested by police in Toronto slowly unravel. We’ve been down this same road before, with the post-September 11 arrest of 19 suspected terrorists in Toronto, a case which fell apart. There is already a page of doubts on the latest arrests at YayaCanada.com. The main crux of the official case, the fact that the ‘terrorists’ ordered a large quantity of fertilizer, has been revealed to be a police sting operation, something the police didn’t bother to mention when they crowed about the arrests.
Another frame-up craters. - M. R.


 
Arkin slanders 911 truth seekers
 
"Go back to sleep. The government is telling the truth. Oswald acted alone. TWA 800 crashed from a fuel tank explosion and the hundreds of witnesses who saw a missile were all drunk. There were no additional bombs at OK City. Arabs did 9-11. You don;t need to see their IDs. These aren't the droids you're looking for. Move along."

Mr. Arkin, you're an obvious shill. - M. R.



 
Hyped Terror Raid Proves To Be Paper Tiger
Friday's terror raid in London which has been hyped by sections of the media all weekend has evaporated into another paper tiger, just as another alleged fearsome plot to attack the Canadian Parliament is discredited by lack of evidence.

Counter-terrorism officials conceded yesterday that lethal chemical devices they feared had been stored at an east London house raided on Friday may never have existed.

TWA 800: 10 years later, feds' story still suspect
Graeme Sephton, an engineer and citizen investigator, submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for the FBI lab reports. Mr. Sephton was denied. He initiated a lawsuit. Surprisingly, he won and the court ordered the FBI to produce the reports. Subsequently, the FBI came back and said it had searched for the reports and couldn't find them. The court then ruled that the FBI had made a good faith effort, and Mr. Sephton was denied. The most widely publicized and most expensive accident investigation in the history of aviation, and the FBI loses its own lab reports? That is highly unlikely. Presumably, the objects still exist. Obviously, the FBI does not want the public to know what it found.
More about TWA 800 is HERE - M. R.


 
How Internet monitoring sparked a CSIS probe
 
This is a pathetic attempt to sell internet monitoring to the public because it was a key player on the Canadian "terror" arrest. But, as it becomes more and more obvious that this was a case of entrapment, this linkage may well backfire on them. - M. R.


 
"No warning" before UK police shot terror suspect
Controversy is growing over a high profile raid by British anti-terrorist police on Friday in which a suspect was shot. Some 250 police officers took part in the raid after getting intelligence reports that chemical or biological weapons were being prepared in an East London home.

But no such arms have been found and lawyers for the shot man say he was fired on without warning. A solicitor said: "He was in his pyjamas, obviously unarmed, empty handed. As he came down the stairs, police rounded a corner, came up the stairs and shot him, in the chest, immediately.

What if someone who doesn't like you phones the police and claims to have seen bomb-making materials in your home? What if th epolice just kick down your door and open fire on you and your family without warning?

Is this the kind of 'law enforcement' you are comfortable living with? - M. R.



 
BBC NEWS | UK | Police terror shooting questioned
 
Now the police are claiming the man shot in Friday's raid was shot by his brother.

More proof that the Canadian "terror" arrests are a staged PR hoax
 
This is slide 8 from a Globe & Mail presentation on the "terrorists". Note the caption that admits that the bag of fertilizer was NOT from the arrest. As for the other items, they are a multi-meter and a soldering iron (items found in most homes, including my own) and a box with a cell phone and some other parts dumped into it. However if you look closely, you can see that the wires aren't connected to anything, they are just draped over the cell phone and circuit board to create a pretty picture. - M. R.


 
RCMP behind bomb material
The delivery of three tonnes of ammonium nitrate to a group suspected of plotting terrorist attacks in southern Ontario was part of an undercover police sting operation, the Toronto Star has learned.
In other words, this is another frame-up. Watch out for one of the "terrorists" to be let go for 'lack of evidence' or some other lame excuse. THAT'S the undercover spook who lured the other men into the trap. - M. R.


 
Bush - Most Hated President Ever Stole Both Elections
The latest polls say Americans now dislike Bush more than any other president including even Tricky Dick. It only took the public five and half year to see through him.

U.K. police hunt for 'dirty' bomb
British anti-terrorist police are hunting for a “dirty” chemical bomb that could be used in an attack in Britain after a major raid failed to uncover a device they believe exists, newspapers reported on Saturday.
Man, the pre-invasion booga booga is running on overdrive right now.

Here is the story. The police got a name from an informant whom even they admit is unreliable. The police raid a couple homes and shoot a man in the process. The subsequent search finds nothing. But since admitting it was all a false alarm doesn't support the rush to war in Iran, the police claim the "dirty bomb" simply got away from them. - M. R.

A poll worker reported to his supervisors that he saw Coulter try to vote in the precinct closest to her Palm Beach home.

White House invokes secrets privilege in eavesdropping cases
National Intelligence Director John Negroponte invoked the state secrets privilege on behalf of the administration, writing that disclosure of such information would cause "exceptionally grave damage" to national security.
The only 'grave damage' to be inflicted if these cases go foreward will be to this Administration's realreasons for eavesdropping in the first place.

The convicted embezzler, the suave fabricator of intelligence, and the secularist-turned-Shiite fundamentalist-turned-Iranian agent, the elusive subject of a slow-moving FBI spy investigation, and the self-described “hero in error” approached the podium at the American Enterprise Institute yesterday after a glowing introduction from Chris DeMuth, AEI’s president. After grumbling that the cherubic man he was about to introduce has been “defamed, undermined and attacked by agencies of the U.S. government,” DeMuth concluded: “Please give a warm welcome to this very great and very brave Iraqi patriot, liberal and liberator, Deputy Prime Minister Ahmed Chalabi.”

Faux 'Terrorism'
The arrest and trial of Hamid Hayat, a 22-year-old naturalized American citizen from Pakistan, and his father, Umer, was touted as a great victory in the Justice Department's campaign to root out the Terrorist Threat on Our Soil. The only problem is, the likelihood that either of them ever had anything to do with al-Qaeda, or terrorist threats against the U.S., is nil. In a long article by Mark Arax in the Los Angeles Times, we learn the whole sordid story of how these two uneducated agricultural workers were singled out, and basically framed, by federal prosecutors out for scalps – any scalps – for political reasons.


 
Terrorism invoked in ISP snooping proposal
In a radical departure from earlier statements, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has said that requiring Internet service providers to save records of their customers' online activities is necessary in the fight against terrorism, CNET News.com has learned.
This is horse-poo. REAL terrorists (not those CIA and Mossad bozos pretending to be terrorists for the news cameras) know better than to use phones and email to communicate. This is all about spying on YOU, stealing your business secrets for government thugs to make money with, to stifle online discussion of what the government is doing, and of course, to watch out for the violent revolution that the government assumes is likely to arise from their dictatorship. - M.

The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) said Friday it was postponing the test - which entails detonation of 700 tons of explosives - so it can reassess the potential for radioactive contaminants left in the ground from earlier nuclear tests becoming airborne.
Actually, the real issue is that the "test" of 700 tonnes of explosives is designed to sell the idea that the US has a conventional bomb of .7 kiloton power, but in truth, there is no bomber on Earth that can lift more than 35 tons, so this "test" is a mask for the use of tactical nuclear weapons in future wars. - M.

Rumsfeld: War's Sacrifices Tragic, But Necessary
Every U.S. servicemember lost in the global war on terror is a tragedy, but as the United States honors them this Memorial Day, it's important to recognize that some things are worth fighting for, and even dying for, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said last night on CNN's "Larry King Live."
Memo to Secretary Rumsfeld: while there are some things worth dying and fighting for, a war launched on a pack of lies is neither worth fighting, nor dying for. And this current conflagration in the Middle East can only end one way: badly.

This has nothing to do with people from this region 'hating us because we're free': it has everything to do with the invasion of a sovereign nation based on no threat whatsoever with which to justify that invasion. Are these people furious with the US? Absolutely,and they have every reason to be. - M. R.

Intelligence Czar Can Waive SEC Rules
President George W. Bush has bestowed on his intelligence czar, John Negroponte, broad authority, in the name of national security, to excuse publicly traded companies from their usual accounting and securities-disclosure obligations. Notice of the development came in a brief entry in the Federal Register, dated May 5, 2006, that was opaque to the untrained eye.

Unbeknownst to almost all of Washington and the financial world, Bush and every other President since Jimmy Carter have had the authority to exempt companies working on certain top-secret defense projects from portions of the 1934 Securities Exchange Act. Administration officials told BusinessWeek that they believe this is the first time a President has ever delegated the authority to someone outside the Oval Office. It couldn't be immediately determined whether any company has received a waiver under this provision.

Yet another unconfirmed tape of Osama (this time audio-only) is being waved around to prop up the official story of 9-11.

The Snooping Goes Beyond Phone Calls
The Departments of Justice, State, and Homeland Security spend millions annually to buy commercial databases that track Americans' finances, phone numbers, and biographical information, according to a report last month by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress. Often, the agencies and their contractors don't ensure the data's accuracy, the GAO found.

Buying commercially collected data allows the government to dodge certain privacy rules. The Privacy Act of 1974 restricts how federal agencies may use such information and requires disclosure of what the government is doing with it. But the law applies only when the government is doing the data collecting.

Was Holocaust Survivor Viktor Frankl Gassed at Auschwitz?
In his reminiscence, Frankl recounted his stay at Auschwitz as if it had lasted an eternity. Now comes Timothy Pytell, adjunct professor of history at the Cooper Union in New York City, to inform us that, based on his research for an intellectual biography of Frankl, the celebrated survivor spent at most three days at Auschwitz, while in transit from Theresienstadt in Bohemia to a subcamp of Dachau in October 1944. As Pytell observes, a reader of Man's Search for Meaning would "be stunned to discover that Frankl spent only a few days in Auschwitz." In the book, Frankl devotes some thirty pages to Auschwitz. Besides recording his experiences on arrival (shaving, showering, delousing, etc.), Frankl makes observations about the lot of inmates there that strongly imply that, at the very least, he spent months, not days, at the camp. ("We had to wear the same shirts for half a year, until they had lost all appearance of being shirts.") As Pytell writes of Frankl's depiction of his stay at Auschwitz: "But if truth be told, Frankl's rendition is contradictory and profoundly deceptive."

I don’t want to dump all over Leopold, as, unlike everybody else, he seems to be trying. On the other hand, his background makes him, exactly like James Hatfield, an excellent target for Rovean disinformation. The Rove pattern is to pick somebody with an iffy history to spread rumors about a touchy topic, rumors which have a basis in truth but which are technically wrong, and then use the character of the person reporting the rumors to deflect attention from the real issues. They used the same method in dealing with Bush’s military service, or lack thereof.

Operation Northwoods: Justification for U.S. Military Intervention in Cuba, 3/13/62
"The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated). We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.

New Presidential Memorandum Permits Intelligence Director To Authorize Telcos To Lie Without Violating Securities Law
Ordinarily, a company that conceals their transactions and activities from the public would violate securities law. But an presidential memorandum signed by the President on May 5 allows the Director of National Intelligence, John Negroponte, to authorize a company to conceal activities related to national security.

In other words, they may lie to you with impunity, exactly the same as the mainstream media. - M. R.

Bush Gang Eyes Our 'Fiercely Protected' Privacy by Jack Kenny
History stutters a lot. It repeats itself, people often say.

Franklin Roosevelt pledged repeatedly in the days and weeks leading up to the 1940 election that he was not going to send American boys into a "foreign war." But, of course, once we’re in a war, it’s no longer foreign, is it? And if he could maneuver and provoke Japan into attacking us, then our war with Japan would likely activate Japan’s treaty with Germany and get us into the war in Europe as well. "Mission accomplished," as our semi-honorable incumbent might say.

Karl Rove Indictment an elaborate Hoax? Did Jason Leopold get Rolled?
If his story on the Rove indictment is incorrect, and I want to stress that we do not know either way right now, I have a theory as to what might have happened. Admittedly, like many theories, mine has several assumptions and ‘what ifs’ but each reader will have to decide for themselves what they believe. Eventually the truth will come out anyway.

AIPAC case defense cites treaty
Defense attorneys in the case of two former employees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) are taking a new approach in attempts to get depositions from three Israeli diplomats referred to in the indictment.

Defending Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, who are awaiting trial on charges of communicating national defense information, the attorneys told the court last week that the Legal Cooperation Treaty signed between Israel and the US in the late 1990s, to help with criminal investigations in both countries, can be used to take depositions from the three diplomats, who are all in Israel.

'Infiltrated by Al Qaeda' my ASCII! These poor saps were asked to play terrorist for the drill, probably told their job was to sneak fake bombs past the security detail as part of the exercise, then given real bombs instead of fake ones.

Because think about it for a minute. If these guys really were Al Qaeda and had really infiltrated MI5, don't you think Al Qaeda would want to keep them right where they were, inside MI5, not waste them in a single bombing attack? - M. R.

Cranking up the smear machine...
 
"Don't believe anything that whistleblower says. He's cracy. Honest!" -- Official White Horse Souse

Seriously, it seems the spook guys are totally unable to come up with anything new. As soon as anyone says anything critical of the US Government, they are labelled `paranoid' or `Qaeda sympathizers'.

But the US Government's problem all along is that they have never really understood the Internet from the sociological point of view. As a result, they are still trying to play their game by the rules that worked during the middle of the last century. Smear their enemies, prop up their friends, create talking heads loaded up with tons of gratuitous awards and good lighting and hope the sheep will follow along to the slaughter.

But that doesn't work anymore. And the guys running the spook shops missed it. It isn't the technology they failed to evolve with, it's the society, and like any form of life that fails to evolve to fit the changing environment, they are struggling to stay alive, but ultimately doomed to extinction.

FLASHBACK: Cheney Spearheaded Effort to Discredit Wilson
During the same CNN segment in which Wilson was interviewed, former United Nations weapons inspector David Albright made similar comments about the rationale for the Iraq war and added that he believed UN weapons inspectors should be given more time to search the country for weapons of mass destruction.

The National Security Council and CIA officials said Cheney had visited CIA headquarters and asked several CIA officials to dig up dirt on Albright, and to put together a dossier that would discredit his work that could be distributed to the media.

"Vice President Cheney was more concerned with Mr. Albright," the CIA official said. "The international community had been saying that inspectors should have more time, that the US should not set a deadline. The Vice President felt Mr. Albright's remarks would fuel the debate."

NSA Whistleblower Says "People Are Going To Be Shocked" By His Testimony Next Week..."This Is Only The Tip Of The Iceberg"
CongressDaily reports that former NSA staffer Russell Tice will testify to the Senate Armed Services Committee next week that not only do employees at the agency believe the activities they are being asked to perform are unlawful, but that what has been disclosed so far is only the tip of the iceberg. Tice will tell Congress that former NSA head Gen. Michael Hayden, Bush's nominee to be the next CIA director, oversaw more illegal activity that has yet to be disclosed:


 
Suspect uranium found in Iran
 
Note the usual anonymous source for this claim.

Just prior to the invasion of Iraq, anonymous souces claimed that weapons-grade uranium had been found on Iraqi lab equipment, but it was suspected by the inspectors that the Americans had contaminated the scene using reference samples usded to calibrate their nuclear detectors. When asked to turn over their reference samples for a possible isotope match with the traces found on the lab gear, the US delegation refused. - M. R.

Agents operating a controversial National Security Agency surveillance program may have inadvertently spied on the e-mails and phone calls of Americans with no ties to terrorists, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Monday.

The Dud Bombers of 21/7, the patsies, have all been rounded up along with 18 others currently under questioning, yet the so called "mastermind" is allowed to go free and is protected time and time again by MI5, MI6, FBI and CIA. The same thing happened in 93 with the WTC bombing, 95 with the OKC bombing, 01 with 911 and its happening again, its the same type of operation EVERYTIME.


 
“Lack of Resources”
In the summer of 2004, the Dubya Administration leaked the identity of Mohammed Naeem Noor Khan, and in effect, aborted a vital intelligence gathering operation.

This may have been the White House’s most deadly leak of all and we still haven’t seen any serious effort to investigate it.

Facing life in a so-called supermax prison, convicted Al Qaeda conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui says he lied in admitting involvement in the Sept. 11 plot, but a judge Monday rejected his attempt to withdraw his guilty plea.
Why would Moussaoui lie?

see HERE

If you're looking for a reason why Zacarias Moussaoui suddenly testified to a version of the 9/11 plotline that sounds more like the Official story than even the official Whitewash Commission report, this video may have the answer.

In it, NBC news reporter Pete Williams lets slip that Moussaoui is wearing a "Stun belt" underneath his clothing controlled by US Marshals. MSNBC host Dan Abrams gets some more details on the stun belt.

Is "Al Qaeda" the modern incarnation of "Emmanuel Goldstein", the arch-villain manufactured by the state to rule the population with fear? Is it really far-fetched? If one can accept a real terrorist organization willing to kill people for their political aims, is a fake terror organization willing to kill people for their political aims any less possible. Once you accept that there can be one group of people willing to commit acts of terror you must accept that there can be a second group equally willing to commit acts of terror to blame on the first group.

Every week, three members of the Israeli Mossad go to the CIA headquarters at Langley and there meet with senior CIA officials.

Parenthetically, we should note that Israel flies a number of top CIA officials to have a yearly very expensive vacation in Israel. First class accommodations by El Al airline, 5 star hotel accommodations, expensive gifts and the whole nine yards are part and parcel of this agape.

Government 'secrets' expanding
Unencumbered by a First Amendment, Britain for almost 100 years has had an Official Secrets Act to prevent leaks to the media and to prosecute offenders, including journalists.

Some Bush administration officials and members of Congress are casting a longing eye at the British law. If only the United States had a similar law, their reasoning goes, the reporters who revealed CIA-run prisons in Eastern Europe and the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping of terrorism suspects would be prosecuted instead of receiving Pulitzer Prizes.



 
Microsoft's $1.6 Million Man: Ralph Reed Jr. Microsoft's $1.6 Million Man
The former Christian Coalition leader turned political consultant did not have to reveal payments by Microsoft prior to that five-year period. But Reed was known to have been on Microsoft's payroll in 2000, when George W. Bush began his White House campaign (see "A Bug in Windows GOP," June 1, 2005) and for several years prior, which could bring his total Microsoft income to $2 million or more. While working for Bush in 2000, Reed worked on Microsoft's behalf for settlement of the company's landmark antitrust lawsuit. Reed asked supporters to write his candidate, Bush, in support of his client, Microsoft. He ultimately apologized for the "misperception" that might have caused.

While supporters of the war in Iraq, such as the New York Times' William Safire, have jumped on the Hayes' article as proof of what the administration had been saying, retired intelligence officers have criticized it, both because of the security breach created by the leak itself and because its so-called "evidence" is hardly convincing.

Hideous Kinky: Moral Nullity as Normality in Pentagon Plans
This state of unwitting confession to monstrous crime has been the default mode of the American Establishment for many years now. Government officials routinely detail policies that in a healthy atmosphere would shake the nation to its core, stand out like a gaping wound, a rank betrayal of every hope, ideal and sacrifice of generations past. Yet in the degraded sensibility of these times, such confessions go unnoticed, their evil unrecognized – or even lauded as savvy ploys or noble endeavors. Inured to moral horror by half a century of outrages committed by the "National Security" complex, the Establishment – along with the media and vast swathes of the population – can no longer discern the poison in the air they breathe. It just seems normal.

Also targeted were our troops: When they unleashed "Whiskey Pete" on civilians in Fallujah, they did so in the belief that they were fighting Zarqawi.

On the same day the Post story appeared, Bush -- in a speech -- cited as genuine a Zarqawi letter now known to be fake.

Congressional Chairmen on intelligence won't hear out NSA whistleblower Group: Congressional Chairmen on intelligence won't hear out NSA whistleblower
Four months later, the Chairmen of the House & Senate Intelligence Committee have yet to respond to requests from a former NSA intelligence analyst to testify about "probable unlawful and unconstitutional acts conducted" at the National Security Agency (NSA) and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), RAW STORY has found.

The following is a press release issued by the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition regarding the silence of the top congressional representatives on intelligence committees about ex-NSA officer Russ Tice's unheard charges.

THE DOORS OF PERCEPTION: WHY AMERICANS WILL BELIEVE ALMOST ANYTHING
We are the most conditioned, programmed beings the world has ever known. Not only are our thoughts and attitudes continually being shaped and molded; our very awareness of the whole design seems like it is being subtly and inexorably erased. The doors of our perception are carefully and precisely regulated. Who cares, right?


 
Radioactive School Site is Tip of New Jersey Toxic Iceberg
“For an environmental agency to look the other way at putting a public school on a contaminated Manhattan Project site shows just how corrupt things are in New Jersey,” stated New Jersey PEER Director Bill Wolfe, noting that the Union City school construction fell through only because SCC ran out of funds rather than from environmental objections. “We would hope that the Corzine administration would wake up and realize that not only SCC, but DEP and its pathetic site remediation program, need more than cosmetic measures; they require major surgery.”

A Cornered Administration
At a book signing on Friday at Columbia University, a number of journalists told me they worried that Bush, Rove and Cheney, if they thought they were going to lose the House in November and face serious investigations into their crimes and deceits, would do something treasonous, like launching a war against Iran, or perhaps allowing another major terrorist attack against a U.S. target, so that they could then clamp down further on domestic freedom and ramp up jingoistic support among their wavering base.
How far we have come. It was only 3 years ago such a suggestion was something you read about only in the blogs. - M. R.


 
Someone Does Not Mean Anyone
But there remains a major issue this trial has ignored. As lawyer David Cole wrote me, "There is something fundamentally wrong with trying to execute Moussaoui, an admittedly marginal figure who was not himself even involved in the planning of 9/11, when we have detained the mastermind of the attack, and the alleged 20th hijacker, but have brought no charges against them - and probably never will, because our torture of them effectively immunizes them from prosecution."
This is a repeat of the Bruno Richard Hauptman trial, now recognized as a travesty of justice, in which Hauptman was railroaded into a death sentence simply because "someone" had to pay for the kidnapping and death of the Lindbergh baby. - M. R.

Whistleblowing Past the Graveyard
After the firing of the CIA officer who leaked the secret prisons story to Dana Priest of the Washington Post, one of the retired-general-talking-heads who regularly appears on cable news these days weighed in with advice on the many avenues this whistleblower might have traveled instead of going to the media.

The CIA officer, identified by the Washington Post as one Mary O. McCarthy, could have reported it to her superior. She could have gone to the agency's Inspector General. If neither of these remedies worked, the errant conduct could have been reported to a member of the House or Senate Intelligence Committees, the general said.

It's probably not a bad thing that this general is retired, because he is either delusional or woefully uninformed.

Rice Allegedly Leaked Defense Info
 
I am re-linking this, because upon reflection, this is apparently a move to link Condi with the accused AIPAC spies in such a way that they cannot be prosecuted without also prosecuting the Secretary of State.

In hindsight, it seems that the specific law under which the accused spies were charged was chosen to give them the greatest possibility of acquittal.

The linkage of Condi to the accused spies carries with it a not-so-subtle message that if the prosecution proceeds, AIPAC's defenders are prepared to go after targets at the very top of the US Government. - M. R.



 
Ex - CIA Agent Says WMD Intelligence Ignored
The CIA had evidence Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction six months before the 2003 U.S.-led invasion but was ignored by a White House intent on ousting Saddam Hussein, a former senior CIA official said according to CBS.
Only a teaser unless you register, but still an important story in that this confirms that Bush KNEW Iraq did not have the weapons of mass destruction that he told you they did.

In other words, the defense that Bush meant well and that the claim that there were 'nookular' bombs in Iraq was never a simple "honest" mistake, but an outright boldfaced lie with malice aforethought.

Bush lied.

There can be no greater crime by a leader against his own people then to lie them into a war. None.

Bush's credibility is gone. And with it that of every other politician, official, and media talking head that supported that lie. If there is one lesson to be learned from the blogs, it is that the lie was an obvious and easily discredited one. It is beyond the realm of possibility that Congress and the mainstream media, with their vast budgets and huge staffs, could not find the obvious signs of deception being reported by blogs operating on spare change found under seat cushions.

We are witness to an historic first. It is not new that wars are started with lies. Indeed it is hard to find one which is not. What is new is that because of the Internet, the lie that started the war is exposed for all to see and is widely known while the war stared with that lie is still being fought, is still killing and crippling our young people.

There is no "middle ground" when dealing with a lie on any scale. Either one denounces the lie, or one is complicit. In the case of a lie on such am horrific scale, complicity is a grave sin. - M. R.

PRESIDENT BUSH NOW CAUGHT IN THE TANGLED WEB OF DECEPTION HE SPUN
We now know they both kept repeating a known lie -- that Iraq had secret trailers used as biological weapons labs -- long after a Pentagon-sponsored fact-finding group unanimously concluded the trailers had nothing whatsoever to do with weapons of any kind.
And we know that Bush claimed Iraq was purchasing "Yellow Cake" uranium from Niger after the State Department and the CIA knew the documents on which the claim rested were forgeries.

TIME TO FACE THE HARD FACTS, FOLKS.

BUSH LIED. YOUR KIDS DIED.

AND 9-11 WAS THE BIGGEST LIE OF ALL. - M. R.



 
9/11 families to testify for Moussaoui
To support its case, defense attorneys called Alexandria jail guard Vikas Ohri to the stand. Ohri told the jury Moussaoui has consistently insisted that President Bush will release him, and that he will then return to England and perhaps write his memoirs for a substantial sum.

"He tells me he will be set free," Ohri said. "He doesn't say when."

Was Moussaoui promised a deal? Confess to 9-11 and bolster the official story of the "Bad Arabs" in exchange for freedom? I'll bet they told him his execution will be faked if he goes along with the game.

Probably the same promise made to Tim McVeigh. - M. R.

1. The Italian Parliament investigated the case and named four suspected forgers, Ahmad Chalabi , Francis Brookes, Dewey Clarridge, and Michael Ledeen.

2. Bush lied. - M. R.



 
Former CIA Director Used Pentagon Ties to Introduce Iraqi Defector
A former CIA director who advocated war against Saddam Hussein helped arrange the debriefing of an Iraqi defector who falsely claimed that Iraq had biological-warfare laboratories disguised as yogurt and milk trucks.

R. James Woolsey's role as a go-between was detailed in a classified Defense Department report chronicling how the defector's assertion came to be included in the Bush administration's case for war even after the defector was determined to be a fabricator.

Do you GET IT YET, AMERICA? THE PRESIDENT LIED TO YOU TO START A WAR.

There can be no higher crime committed by a leader than to lie to his people to start a war of conquest. Bush's crime of lying to start the invasion of Iraq is equal to Hitler's crime of lying to the Germans to start the invasion of Poland. We all know what happened to Germany when they went along with Hitler. Dare we risk the same fate by going along with Bush? - M. R.

FLASHBACK: Former FBI whistleblower files against judge in Libby trial over secrecy issues
Former FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds filed a motion asking for the recusal of the judge assigned to her case because of his alleged "bias to secrecy," RAW STORY has learned.
This story and the two that follow paint a disturbing picture of the Federal Court system. In theory, judges are assigned at random to cases. However, the same Judge, Reggie Walton, (appointed by Bush) has been assigned and REassigned to the Sibel Edmonds AND THE SCOOTER LIBBY cases!

The Justice Department and the FBI both argued to the court that her lawsuit should be dismissed because much of the information needed to be considered for it was protected by the "state secrets privilege," which is meant to protect classified national security information from being disclosed.

U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton agreed with the government's position.

See next story. - M. R.


 
Judge in Scooter Libby, Sibel Edmonds cases is redacted in action
All federal judges are required under ethics rules to file what is known as “financial disclosure reports.”

Well, it seems, at least according to the only document that Judicial Watch could shake loose in its public-records quest, that Walton doesn’t think so. His financial disclosure statement, the one released for public inspection through Judicial Watch, is completely redacted, every line of it.



 
Roberts called out on delaying Phase II again; Whines and spins in response
Senator Roberts of Kansas, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in 2004 that he would begin Phase II of the investigation into the pre-war 'intelligence' about the mythical Iraqi weapons of mass destruction shortly after the elections were over. The reason for that delay was that it wouldn't be good to have the hearings hurt by partisans trying to use them for political gain during the election process. Of course, keeping the report under wraps was a political plus for the Repubicans...
Actually, the legitimacy of the entire government is on the line here if they ever officially admit they lied the nation into a war.

Nowhere in the Constitution is the government given explicit authority to lie to the people, and under the Tenth Amendment, the government may not arrogate that right to itself.

Therefore, when the government lies to the people, such as is clearly the case with the public reasons given for the war in Iraq, the government acts unconstitutionally and illegally. A government that lies to the people ceases to be the lawful government of this land. For Roberts to officially admit that the reasons given for the Iraq war are lies and deceptions opens up the government to wrongful injury/death lawsuits from every family member of every slain or wounded service person. And, since the war was started with lies, the general taxpaying public is legally in their rights to refuse to pay for any of it, since a war stared with lies is not legal under the US Constitution.

Our nation is founded on the principle of rule with the consent of the governed. I don't know anyone who consents to be lied to. No court would enforce such a silly notion anyway. One cannot agree to be lied to since by definition, one cannot know what one is actually agreeing to, hence any such contract is unenforcible.

Bottom line, any official admission of lies by the government is tantamount to an admission that the government has lost both legality and legitimacy, which is why WE THE PEOPLE are going to have to force the issue of the lies into the court of world opinion until the US Government's plaintive assertions of innocence look too ridiculous to continue, until the proper and correct response to all statements by the US Government is laughter, ridicule, and scorn. - M. R.



 
The Report They Forgot
In February 2004, the Senate Select Intelligence Committee (SSCI) announced that it had unanimously agreed to expand its investigation of prewar Iraq intelligence from focus on intelligence community blunders and into the more controversial area of “whether intelligence was exaggerated or misused” by U.S. government officials. The committee’s ranking Democrat, Jay Rockefeller, struck the agreement with Chairman Pat Roberts -- provided, Roberts insisted, that the probe into policy-makers’ activities wait until after the presidential election.

It’s now more than a year later, and Rockefeller is still waiting -- the Phase II report has yet to appear. What happened? And why isn’t Rockefeller making more of a fuss?



 
"Painwashing" the Moussaoui jury and us
As of September 27, 2002, in an explosive New York Times article, U.S. Gave Secrets to Terror Suspect by Philip Shenon, the reporter tells us, “Although Mr. Moussaoui, 34, a French national, has admitted that he is a member of Al Qaeda and is loyal to Osama bin Laden, he has insisted that he had nothing to do with the Sept. 11 attacks.” Remember that: insistence he had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. Then ask, what occurred in the interim to turn his testimony totally around? Could it possibly be brainwashing, painwashing?

Another Monstrous Intelligence Hoax : By Dick Chney
On Sept. 28, at the Vice President's request, the Agency provided a special briefing on the subject of Jordanian terrorist Mu'sab al-Zarqawi. The CIA's Counter Terrorism Center (CTC) reviewed all of the available intelligence on the subject and based its briefing on a just completed comprehensive intelligence analysis. The CTC concluded that Saddam Hussein had not materially supported Zarqawi before the U.S.-led invasion and that Zarqawi's infrastructure in Iraw before the war was confined to the northern no-fly zones of Kurdistan, beyond Baghdad's reach. Cheney reacted with fury, screaming at the briefer that CIA was trying to get John Kerry elected by contradicting the president's stance that Saddam had supported terrorism and therefore needed to be overthrown.
Something to keep in mind as Scott McClellan tries to spin the "Mobile Biological Lab" scandal by claiming the CIA confirmed it. - M. R.


 
McClellan: Media Should “Publicly Apologize” For Reporting On Mobile Weapons Lab Story
 
Talk about Chutspah! The media should apologize for telling the truth (finally)?!?

Here's where Scott has fallen on his face. The trailers which were claimed to be mobile biological weapons labs were actually hydrogen generators for weather or artillery balloons. Since hydrogen is a tiny molecule, it is very hard to store it for any length of time as it will simply seep through the sides of any container. So, normal practice is to produce vast quantities of hydrogen on site from a chemical reaction. Many companies make dedicated portable hydrogen generators for this purpose. The ones found in Iraq were made by a company in Great Britain, who like any other manufacturer PUTS IDENTIFYING PLATES ON THEIR PRODUCTS with things like the serial/model number and where to call to get service and spare parts. The Iraqis would have no reason to remove those plates.

So, anyone actually looking closely at these trailers would KNOW exactly what they were and where they came from. There is no possibility of mis-identifying the units, other than by intention.

FIRE THE LIARS! - M. R.



 
Rumsfeld lies, AP covers it up
April 11, 2006: Here's what U.S. Secretary of Defense [sic] Donald Rumsfeld said today:

"There is obviously concern about Iran. It's a country that is -- supports terrorists. It's a country that has indicated an interest in having weapons of mass destruction."

Now read how AP reported the story, and pay very careful attention to the placement of the quotation marks:

Said Rumsfeld: "There is obviously concern about Iran. Iran is a country that supports terrorism. It is a country that has indicated" a desire to obtain nuclear technology.

AP completely fabricated the last part of the quote!!!!



 
The Al Qaeda Myth
We now know that Al Qaeda had nothing to do with the London bombings in July 2005. This is the conclusion of the British government's official inquiry report leaked to the British press on April 9.

We now also know that the U.S. military is deliberately misleading Iraqis, Americans and the rest of the world about the extent of Al Qaeda's involvement in the Iraqi insurgency. This was reported in The Washington Post on April 10, on the basis of internal military documents seen by that newspaper.

But there really is an Al Qaeda (honest) and HERE THEY ARE! - M. R.


 
How US fuelled myth of Zarqawi the mastermind
Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the terrorist leader believed to be responsible for the abduction of Kenneth Bigley, is 'more myth than man', according to American military intelligence agents in Iraq.

Several sources said the importance of Zarqawi, blamed for many of the most spectacular acts of violence in Iraq, has been exaggerated by flawed intelligence and the Bush administration's desire to find "a villain" for the post-invasion mayhem.

In other words, Zarqawi is as real as Saddam's 'nookular' bombs. - M. R.

NIGER-GATE: THE SCANDAL BEHIND THE SCANDAL
The outing of Valerie Plame was not done out of revenge, or as the Washington Post reports, part of a feud between Karl Rove and the CIA. Joe Wilson's article started to focus attention on the fact that the documents used to claim that Iraq was buying uranium from Niger were fakes!

The fact that the Niger documents were fake is hard proof that the lies that tricked this nation into war were not an accident, not "misinterpreted" or "bad" intelligence, but deliberate falsehood with malice aforethought.We The People were lied to intentionally to trick us into supporting a war of conquest against an innocent nation that had done us no wrong.



 
US denies Iraqi weapons knowledge
The White House has angrily denied a newspaper report that suggested President George W Bush in 2003 declared the existence of biological weapons laboratories in Iraq while knowing it was not true.
"You see, I really did think Saddam had those nookular bombs, because the Office of Special PLans had these documents Israel gave them that said so, and those other things, like the forged Niger documents, well I didn't know about those and the 'Dodgy Dossier', that was all Tony Blair's fault anyway, and those mis-labeled photos that Colin Powell had at the UN, those are HIS fault, and the CIA, blame the CIA on that one as well, and I know that no WMDs were ever found but that doesn't mean I deliberately lied because in my heart of hearts I truly believed those WMDs were there!

Lacking Biolabs, Trailers Carried Case for War
On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. and Kurdish troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile "biological laboratories." He declared, "We have found the weapons of mass destruction."

The claim, repeated by top administration officials for months afterward, was hailed at the time as a vindication of the decision to go to war. But even as Bush spoke, U.S. intelligence officials possessed powerful evidence that it was not true.

Less than 24 hours after their photos appeared in the media, this website had correctly identified the trailers as mobile hydrogen generators for weather/artillery balloons. - M. R.

By not reporting the cover-up in the Foster investigation as well as not reporting witness stories, journalists aid the government perpetrators in silencing witnesses, said Miguel Rodriguez, the lead U.S, Attorney in the Foster investigation, who blew the whistle on the cover-up 11 years ago.

Rodriguez added that crime scene witnesses that were compromised by investigators and then ignored by the complicit media included Jean Slade, Judith Doody, Mark Fiest, Patrick Knowlton, park service workers Chuck Stough, Francis Swann, as well as rescue workers, Todd Hall, Richard Arthur, George Gonzalez, Ralph Pisani, Jennifer Wacha, Cory Ashford, William Bianchi, Victoria Jacobs, Roger Harrison, Andrew Makuch, the coroner's wife and two unnamed tow truck drivers.

New Bush leak scandal: Creating a bogeyman in Iraq
Tomorrow, the front page of a different paper, the Washington Post, will tell the rest of the story: That the Filkins "scoop" was part of a coordinated campaign of leaks aimed at convincing both Iraqis and -- more importantly in that presidential election year -- Americans back home that Zarqawi was more important than he really was. It's very significant, because the Pentagon is not allowed to aim its so-called "psy-ops" at controlling or changing opinions domestically.
But they did it anyway! - M. R.

A 'Concerted Effort' to Discredit Bush Critic
 
There are two aspects to this headline you need to pay attention to. First off, the WaPo describes Joe Wilson as a "critic". This is not accurate. Joe Wilson was far more dangerous than being a critic; he was in a position to blow the lid off the lies being told by the White House to trick the nation into a war of conquest. "Critic" trivializes what Joe Wilson was trying to do.

Second, the phrases "Concerted Effort" and "multiple people in the White House" should raise the red flag, because when two or more people agree to do something, THAT is a conspiracy. So for those who insist there is no such thing as government conspiracies, here is your helping of crow. - M. R.



 
THE LIE OF THE CENTURY
 
Behind Plame...

Behind the Niger Forgeries...

Lies the greatest scandal of all. - M. R.



 
FLASHBACK: Did Plame out WH plans for finding WMD in Iraq?
Did the White House plan to 'find' WMD in Iraq until Brewster-Jennings intercepted their shipment? Was that why Plame was in their crosshairs long before Wilson's editorial?


 
FLASHBACK: SCANDAL OF THE LOBBY ZIONIST AIPAC: A PERFUME OF WATERGATE
Italian Parliament finger four forgers - Ahmad Chalabi , Francis Brookes, Dewey Clarridge, and Michael Ledeen.
The story appearing today claiming that the Niger forgeries were forged by some Nigerians is just another lie in a long series of lies from a government that has forgotten how to tell the truth.

The Italian Parliament investigated the forgeries because the scandal involved SISMI, and named the forgers. Those names were never reported in the American press for the obvious reasons. Now that the Plame leak if forcing the Niger forgeries (and the lies that led to war) back into the public mind, it comes as no surprise that the forgers would try to shift the blame off of themselves and onto a bogeyman conveniently far away. - M. R.



 
Another White House is buying silence
The clock has started on whether Bush will make this declaration. Court documents released this week show that I. Lewis ''Scooter" Libby, the former chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, has testified that both Cheney and President Bush authorized him to leak classified intelligence about Iraq in July 2003.


 
Leak reveals official story of London bombings
The official inquiry into the 7 July London bombings will say the attack was planned on a shoestring budget from information on the internet, that there was no 'fifth-bomber' and no direct support from al-Qaeda, although two of the bombers had visited Pakistan.
And if you believe that one, you'll buy this watch. - M. R.


 
NIGER-GATE: THE SCANDAL BEHIND THE SCANDAL
 
Behind the outing of Valerie Plame lies a key to the lies that tricked our nation into war.

Bush based his push to war on the basis of obviously forged documents that reported Iraq was trying to buy "Yellow Cake" uranium ore from Niger. This claim was absurd on the face of it, as Iraq has plenty of natural uranium within its own borders and no need to purchase uranium elsewhere.

The Italian Parliament investigated the forgeries (since they had been fed to the US via SISMI) and concluded that the forgers were Ahmad Chalabi , Francis Brookes, Dewey Clarridge, and Michael Ledeen. Accompanying Michael Ledeen in his meeting with SISMI just before the Niger forgeries appeared was Larry Franklin of the Pentagon Office of Special Plans, now exposed as a spy for Israel.

Bush had Valerie Plame outed (thereby wrecking not only her career but the CIA front company that kept track of third world nuclear arms) to keep the media from paying attention to Plame's husband, Joe Wilson, who was starting to go public with the fact that the Niger story was an obvious hoax.

So, today, the servile media are trying to explain why Bush's wrecking of Plame, Wilson, and Brewser Jennings & Associates was "in the public interest", along with sending our kids to die in Iraq based on a lie about 'nookular' bombs, and oh, by the way, the forgers were some Nigerians, not key Neocons in the US war machine.

And TIME wonders why they had to fire 250 more people from their rag. - M. R.



 
Washington Post Praises Bush Leak, Mangles Facts
This morning, the Washington Post published an editorial — entitled “A Good Leak” — vigorously defending President Bush’s decision to authorize a leak of classified information as part of a political effort to discredit former Ambassador Joseph Wilson. Apparently, it isn’t a very strong case because, in order to make their point, the editors had to mangle the facts –


 
No al-Qaeda link found in bombings
A government inquiry into the terrorist attack in London last July 7 will say there was no direct support from al-Qaeda, even though two of the bombers had visited Pakistan.

The attack was the work of four "seemingly normal" men who had scoured terrorist sites on the internet, not an international terrorist network, the inquiry will reportedly say when it is published in the next few weeks

Sure, sure, that's right, four totally normal guys, one a newly wed, the other a brand new father, all hard-working men, just decided to blow up a train, right in the middle of an ongoing anti-terror exercise taking place at the exact same time and place. Right. You believe that, don't ya? Huh? Huh? Huh? - M. R.

Briefing: why Moussaoui confession doesn't add up
"Prosecutors have no interest in demolishing Moussaoui’s extraordinary confession as the self- proclaimed al-Qaeda terrorist seems to have done their job for them. It does not appear to matter to them that Moussaoui’s testimony contradicts their own evidence.


 
Libby Sings
Continued legal filings in the case now reveal Prosecutor Fitzgerald as a guardian of White House secrets and Scooter Libby plus his defense team as assiduously implicating President Bush. For those who questioned George Bush’s modus operandi in the months leading up to the invasion of Iraq and afterwards these are perhaps not unexpected developments. But the gradual emergence of the contents of the Libby grand jury testimony is important not only because it contradicts the president’s public denials of the leaks, but also for potentially placing the president at the center of a smear campaign.


 
Niger embassy forged documents used as basis for Iraq war, paper to report
 
Oh? Then why did the forgers use outdated letterhead, which was the first clue that exposed the fact of the forgery?

Or is this "secret investigation" just trying to shift the blame away from Ahmad Chalabi , Francis Brookes, Dewey Clarridge, and Michael Ledeen. - M. R.



 
NASCAR Furious With NBC Over 'Dateline' Segment
The National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing said the NBC network's "Dateline NBC" confirmed it was sending Muslim-looking men to a race, along with a camera crew to film fans' reactions. The NBC crew was "apparently on site in Martinsville, Virginia, walked around and no one bothered them," NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston said Wednesday.

"It is outrageous that a news organization of NBC's stature would stoop to the level of going out to create news instead of reporting news," Poston said.

Is The Capitol Building Next, Or Do The Tunnels Go Deeper?
U.S. Capitol police however said a power spike that affected much of the metropolitan area "knocked out power to the Capitol building and caused lights and cable TV reception to flicker throughout the Capitol complex." In response, police evacuated the building and investigated, along with architect of the Capitol and fire officials.

Normally, this apparently innocuous event would not be interesting, except for the fact that, on the weekend prior to the 9/11 attacks, power to the WTC complex was also shut off, allowing, as is now expected, the conspirators to enter the complex and 'prep' the buildings for the very obvious demolition that occured just a few days later.

Iraq WMD Lies: The Words of Mass Deception

The Cat's Out of The Bag
The White House eventually said neither Libby nor Karl Rove had been involved in the leak. Rove remains under criminal investigation.

Libby was clearly involved in revealing Plame's identity, which means that the President is either clueless or he lied when he released a statement that Libby wasn't involved.

Of COURSE the President lies. Remember the whopper about Saddam's 'nookular' bombs? - M. R.

Evidence Suggests White House Conspiracy
Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald stated in a court filing late Wednesday in the CIA leak case that his investigators have obtained evidence during the course of the two-year-old probe that proves several White House officials conspired to discredit former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, a critic of the administration's pre-war Iraq intelligence.
This fact alone proves that the White House KNEW their claims about Iraq were false, and took active steps to prevent Joe Wilson from exposing the fraud to the public.

The "it was all an honest mistake" defense just went out the window.

Bush lied.

Your kids died. - M. R.



 
Libby: Bush Authorized Plamegate Leak
 


 
Bush authorized leak of intelligence data on Iraq, says new court filing in CIA leak case
Vice President Dick Cheney's former top aide told prosecutors President Bush authorized the leak of sensitive intelligence information about Iraq, according to court papers filed by prosecutors in the CIA leak case.
For newcomers, here is a bit of the back story.

President Bush claimed in his 2003 State of the Union Speech that Iraq was buying processed uranium ore, or "yellow cake", from Niger. This claim was based on a set of documents which turned out to be inept forgeries. That they were forgeries was known by Joe Wilson, who was sent by the CIA to verify the story. At the time Joe Wilson started to go public with the fact of the forgeries, someone leaked the fact that Joe's wife, Valerie Plame, was a CIA agent as part of a larger story attempting to portray Joe Wilson's fact-finding trip as more of a lark than a real investigation. But, by exposing Plame's identity, the leaker not only destroyed her career, but wrecked the front group she worked for, which was the CIA's main means of tracking nuclear arms throughout the world. - M. R.

Amnesty report claims CIA used private flights to hide terror rendition
Below the Radar: Secret flights to Torture and 'Disappearance', reveals how the CIA exploited aviation practices to hide behind the identity of private plane operators and circumvent authorities. Countries that allow CIA planes to cross their airspace and use their airports often cite the Convention on International Civil Aviation, also known as the Chicago Convention. These states claim that they do not have the authority to question the reasons for the flight because there is a clause in the Convention that allows private, non-commercial flights to fly over a country, or make technical stops there, without prior authorization or notification.

Doug Thompson: 9/11 - Incompetence Not Conspiracy
"Just plain wrong"? Now I'm REALLY convinced. Why? Because Doug Thompson says so. There it is in plain English. It's just plain wrong" No facts or evidence required. It's "just plain wrong."

After all, Thompson says, "My 40-plus years as a journalist, coupled with too many years working inside the government, tell me that the scenarios laid out by the 9/11 conspiracy buffs just don't pass the smell test."

"40-plus years"? Thompson must be a "trained" professional. You know? Like a seal. Aren't you convinced too?

Ask Doug if they threatened to castrate him.

Or has he been castrated already?

A senior Congressional investigator has accused his agency of covering up a scientific fraud among builders of a $26 billion system meant to shield the nation from nuclear attack.

Wiseguy defendant doubled as FBI snitch
At the same time New York mob associate Anthony Moscatiello was allegedly plotting the slaying of a Fort Lauderdale business tycoon, he was also spying on fellow gangsters and snitching to the FBI, The Miami Herald has learned.

Moscatiello -- a former advisor to the late Gambino family crime boss John Gotti -- is the star defendant in the mob-style hit on Konstantinos ''Gus'' Boulis, founder of SunCruz Casinos, a fleet of gambling ships.

Jack Abramoff owned the SunCruz ships after Boulis. Left unmentioned in these articles is the star guest Abramoff had aboard in the weeks before 9-11, Mohammed Atta. - M. R.


 
Elie Wiesel and the Catholics

Did Oprah Pick Another Fibber?
But hardly had Frey been cast down from the eminence of Amazon.com's top bestseller before he was replaced at number one by the new pick of Oprah's Book Club, Elie Wiesel's Night, which had the good fortune to see republication at this fraught moment in Oprah's literary affairs. Simultaneous with the Night selection came news that Oprah Winfrey and Elie Wiesel would shortly be visiting Auschwitz together, from which vantage point Oprah, with the lugubrious Wiesel at her side, could emphasize for her ABC-TV audience that there is truth and there is fiction, that Auschwitz is historical truth at its bleakest and most terrifying, that Night is a truthful account and that Wiesel is the human embodiment of truthful witness.

The trouble here is that in its central, most crucial scene, Night isn't historically true, and at least two other important episodes are almost certainly fiction.

Insulating Bush
Karl Rove, President Bush's chief political adviser, cautioned other White House aides in the summer of 2003 that Bush's 2004 re-election prospects would be severely damaged if it was publicly disclosed that he had been personally warned that a key rationale for going to war had been challenged within the administration. Rove expressed his concerns shortly after an informal review of classified government records by then-Deputy National Security Adviser Stephen J. Hadley determined that Bush had been specifically advised that claims he later made in his 2003 State of the Union address -- that Iraq was procuring high-strength aluminum tubes to build a nuclear weapon -- might not be true, according to government records and interviews.

Is deception the best way to serve one's country?
John Kennedy's death, and the doubts that surround it to this day, marked the beginning of the end of America's idealism. The cynicism grew with the lies of Vietnam and the senseless deaths of too many thousands of young Americans in a war that never should have been fought. Doubts about the integrity of those we elect as our leaders festers today as this country finds itself embroiled in another senseless war based on too many lies.

John Connally felt he served his country best by concealing his doubts about the Warren Commission's whitewash but his silence may have contributed to the growing perception that our elected leaders can rewrite history to fit their political agendas.

Had Connally spoken out, as a high-ranking political figure with doubts about the "official" version of what happened, it might have sent a signal that Americans deserve the truth from their government, even when that truth hurts.

Supreme Court rules on Anthrax libel case
Hatfill may have been libeled by the press. He was certainly smeared by the U.S. government. Then-attorney general John Ashcroft called Hatfill a "person of interest," which as any TV watcher knows, is merely a euphemism for "the guy who did it."

Except in this case, it's not at all clear that Hatfill did do it. The government has never provided any evidence that he - or anyone else for that matter -- was connected to the attacks. Instead the Justice Department destroyed Hatfill's life through innuendo. "Steven Hatfill once worked in Zimbabwe. Did you know there was once an anthrax outbreak in Zimbabwe." That sort of thing.

Meanwhile, a real suspect, a man actually caught entering the storage area where the Anthrax used in the mailings was kept, without proper authorization, and AFTER being fired over a racially motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker, remains at large, protected, concealed. - M. R.


 
"White House Memo" Drives a Stake into the Heart of White House Lies
At that time, millions of us were protesting around the world. We all knew Bush wanted war - that's why we were protesting! - but Bush insisted publicly that he did not, and the Corporate Media let him get away with his lies.

The "White House Memo" proves that Bush was lying - saying one thing in public while saying the opposite in private. In private, he told Tony Blair that war was inevitable, and that it didn't matter if WMD's were found or if the U.N. adopted a resolution actually authorizing the invasion.

In fact, Bush was so desperate for war that he proposed painting a U.S. spy plane with U.N. colors and flying it over Iraq to provoke an attack. But even if Saddam refused the bait, Bush told Blair the bombing would begin on March 10. Bush wanted war, no matter what.

In this particularly fascinating case, the Pentagon investigated its own habit of paying people to make up lies about how well the war in Iraq is going, and then paying other people to put those lies in the Iraqi media, thus fooling the Iraqis into thinking everything in their country is tickety-boo. Well, if we can't fool them, whom can we fool?

About Moussaoui, much ado about nothing
 
Moussaoui's "confessions" sound too much like they are written by the White House to be believed, and now that it has been revealed that he is wearing a remote-control stun belt under his clothing, clearly we are dealing with coerced testimony for the cameras.

It's another frame-up. - M. R.



 
Two Nut Jobs and a Boeing 747
In fact, Zacarias Moussaoui is a stark raving lunatic, given to paranoid outbursts in the courtroom, and he was deemed sane for the simple reason that the government needs a conviction to prop up its ludicrous whitewash commission fairy tale about “al-Qaeda” cave dwellers attacking America on September 11, 2001.

Radioactive Tank No. 9 comes limping home Radioactive Tank No. 9 comes limping home
Across the plains of Kansas, destroyed, radioactive Abrams tanks, perched on railroad flatcars, rolled towards an uncertain future. Only one thing was certain. They would be radioactive forever. This would be their everlasting death mask. The Pentagon deceptively calls it "depleted uranium."

The enduring vigorous stupidity of the U.S. military pretends that radiation is one of those things that if you can't see it, it can't hurt you. They are thoroughly delusional, of course. A National Academy of Sciences report released June 30, 2005, finds that there is no safe level of radiation. Any radiation is bad.

Another explanation is that the U.S. Army and other branches of the military are far from stupid. They are, in fact, the most lethal and carefully planned military in the history of the world. The extensive use of weaponized uranium oxide gas, aerosols and dust is not an accident or an oversight. They did it on purpose.

If this is true, they purposely used a genocidal weapon over at least a 15-year period. No, this is not a callous mistake of empire; it is a calculated act of genocide to weaken the oil- and gas-rich countries of Central Asia, including Iraq. Take your choice: they are either stupid or genocidal monsters.

Bush will still be in office. The Neocons will still push your kids into wars. The nation will continue to deteriorate into dictatorship.

The resolution is a Censure. Bug @#$%ing DEAL! It is a TOTAL WASTE OF TIME BY DESIGN. It is a trick to get you to forget that the real solution to end these wars is impeachment and removal from office.

Is Another 9/11 in the Works? - by Paul Craig Roberts
Readers, whose thinking runs ahead of that of most of us, tell me that another 9/11 event will prepare the ground for a nuclear attack on Iran. Some readers say that Bush, or Israel as in Israel’s highly provocative attack on the Jericho jail and kidnapping of prisoners with American complicity, will provoke a second attack on the US. Others say that Bush or the neoconservatives working with some "black ops" group will orchestrate the attack.

Yeah, You Really Got Me Going So I Can’t Sleep At Night
For the last couple days I’ve been fascinated with the Will Ferrell hoax. The speed that it spread and how fast it was refuted is truly what the ‘Brave New World’ of online news delivery is all about. Hey, what can I say? I fell for it. Whoever you are you got me. I wish I could say ‘no harm, no foul’ but for reasons that I outlined yesterday there is some harm in giving those who wish to discredit the Internet the fuel to do so.


 
Is Another 9/11 in the Works?
One of the more extraordinary suggestions is that a low yield, perhaps tactical, nuclear weapon will be exploded some distance out from a US port. Death and destruction will be minimized, but fear and hysteria will be maximized. Americans will be told that the ship bearing the weapon was discovered and intercepted just in time, thanks to Bush’s illegal spying program, and that Iran is to blame. A more powerful wave of fear and outrage will again bind the American people to Bush, and the US media will not report the rest of the world’s doubts of the explanation.

Reads like a Michael Crichton plot, doesn’t it?

Fantasy? Let’s hope so.

The truth is that none of the ports were being turned over to an Arab country, and security would continue to be handled by the Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and a wide array of local port-related cops at all of the major U.S. seaports.

No Evidence al-Qaida Planned Madrid Attacks
A two-year probe into the Madrid train bombings concludes the Islamic terrorists who carried out the blasts were homegrown radicals acting on their own rather than at the behest of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network, two senior intelligence officials said.

On the March 8, 2006 edition of the CNN American Morning program with Miles O'Brien and Soledad O'Brien, they made a startling announcement. On average there are 175,000 new cases of lung cancer each year in the United States. For just the months of January and February 2006 there are 172,000 confirmed, newly diagnosed cases of lung cancer. This is not just a little spike on the charts and much worse news is coming. That is already averaging this year about 6 times the normal incidence of new lung cancer cases in a year.

America Anesthetized
Shockingly, 85 percent of the troops questioned believe they are fighting in Iraq "to retaliate for Saddam’s role in the 9-11 attacks" – one of the key Iraq War myths built by Bush’s frequent juxtaposition of references to Osama bin-Laden and Saddam Hussein.

This subliminal message has stuck with the vast majority of U.S. troops even though Bush eventually acknowledged publicly that there is no evidence linking Saddam to the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The poll results are easily explained. The American citizens have open and free access to the Internet. The troops in the field are clearly blocked from certain websites, and the Bush admission about the Saddam/9-11 lie "somehow" didn't get much coverage on the Armed Forces radio and TV networks. - M.

Perchlorate, the explosive ingredient in solid rocket fuel, has contaminated drinking water and soil in at least 35 states, with most of the known contamination coming from military bases and defense contractors. Tests by EWG, academic scientists in Texas and Arizona, state officials in California and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have found perchlorate in milk, produce and many other foods and animal feed crops from coast to coast. Perchlorate is a thyroid toxin, and animal tests show that even small amounts can disrupt normal growth and development in fetuses, infants and children.

BIN LADEN AIDS BUSH
President Bush has admitted a video threat by Osama bin Laden helped him win the 2004 US election.

Mr Bush believes the 15-minute rant urging people not to vote for him had the opposite effect after it was broadcast on Arab TV station Al-Jazeera a week before the poll.

Considering that the real Osama died in December 2001, the Osama who helped Bush win re-election was a manufactured propaganda device created for precisely that result. - M. R.

The belief that the attack was the work of American and Israeli covert-operations (Black-ops) is widespread throughout the region as well as among leftist political-analysts in the United States. Journalist Kurt Nimmo sees the bombing as a means of realizing “a plan sketched out in Oded Yinon’s “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties” (the balkanization of Arab and Muslim society and culture.) Nimmo suggests that the plan may have been carried out by “American, British or Israeli Intelligence operatives or their double-agent Arab lunatics, or crazies incited by Rumsfeld’s Proactive Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG) designed to ‘stimulate’ terrorist reaction.”

Two top Bush administration officials who played an active role in the leak of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, have been removing from their jobs, career State Deptartment weapons experts who have spoken to investigators during the past two years about the officials role in the leak, according to a half-dozen State Department officials. The State Department officials requested anonymity for fear of further retribution. They said they believe they are being sidelined because they have been cooperating with Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the outing of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson, and have disagreed with the Bush administration's intelligence that claimed Iraq sought 500 tons of yellowcake uranium ore from Niger - an explosive piece of intelligence that was included in President Bush's January 2003, State of the Union address that was found to be based on crude forgeries, but helped pave the way to war.

United Press International - Security & Terrorism - Emergency war supplemental hides millions Emergency war supplemental hides millions
Buried in last week's $72.4 billion emergency supplemental appropriation bill for the war on terror is nearly half a billion dollars worth of military construction. The bulk of the $485 million requested will go "to fund various military construction projects to support U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan," according to the supplemental. "The requested funds," the document goes on, "will provide force protection measures, enhanced airfield operations and safety, power distribution, water treatment and distribution infrastructure, operational facilities and improved logistics, and associated planning and design efforts." But the supplemental also includes $35 million new money for the expansion of the National Security Agency's top secret listening post at Menwith Hill in Yorkshire, England, and authority to spend $700 million appropriated in previous years for construction or expansion of NSA facilities in Augusta, Ga., and Kunia, Hawaii.


 
U.S. Reclassifies Many Documents in Secret Review - New York Times
The restoration of classified status to more than 55,000 previously declassified pages began in 1999, when the Central Intelligence Agency and five other agencies objected to what they saw as a hasty release of sensitive information after a 1995 declassification order signed by President Bill Clinton. It accelerated after the Bush administration took office and especially after the 2001 terrorist attacks, according to archives records. But because the reclassification program is itself shrouded in secrecy — governed by a still-classified memorandum that prohibits the National Archives even from saying which agencies are involved — it continued virtually without outside notice until December. That was when an intelligence historian, Matthew M. Aid, noticed that dozens of documents he had copied years ago had been withdrawn from the archives' open shelves. Mr. Aid was struck by what seemed to him the innocuous contents of the documents — mostly decades-old State Department reports from the Korean War and the early cold war. He found that eight reclassified documents had been previously published in the State Department's history series, "Foreign Relations of the United States." "The stuff they pulled should never have been removed," he said. "Some of it is mundane, and some of it is outright ridiculous."

Saddam Tapes Tainted by Cherney Foundation
Since news is now considered entertainment, we are expected to check our disbelief and suspicion at the door. However, there is one small troublesome aspect to the Saddam tapes—they were released to the public by the International Intelligence Summit, described “as a nonpartisan, nonprofit forum that promotes an exchange of ideas among members of the international intelligence community…. The summit’s main sponsor is the Michael Cherney Fund, whose Web site describes the fund’s main objective as ‘helping realize the intellectual potential of the post-Soviet emigres to Israel.’”

For the casual observer, this bit about post-Soviet émigrés and Israel may seem confusing—that is until you realize, as Bush’s adviser Philip Zelikow revealed, the invasion of Iraq was launched to “protect” Israel, not that the enfeebled nation of Iraq, suffering from more than a decade of debilitating sanctions, posed a threat to Israel with its modern high-tech weaponry, including more than 400 nukes.

"Megrahi's lawyers already have a sworn statement from a retired Scottish police officer confirming that evidence had been planted to secure the Libyan's conviction.

Masters of Deception
The exposure of Plame and her entire operation – Brewster Jennings & Associates, the CIA front company that cloaked this super-secret tracking program – effectively blinded the U.S. to the evolution of Iran's nuclear program. Not long after the outing of Plame – and just after a grand jury began hearing testimony in the Fitzgerald investigation – another security breach involving Iran made headlines: the Iranians had been alerted to the fact that the U.S. had broken the code governing their internal government communications, with the chief suspects being the neoconservative version of Che Guevara, Ahmed Chalabi, and his Iraqi National Congress, the source of much of the phony pre-invasion "intelligence" about Iraq. The truth about Iran's WMD (or lack of same) was rendered inaccessible, leaving the field open for the neocons and their foreign operatives to move into the vacuum and keep their very effective lie factory working overtime.

At the same time, the chief analyst at the Pentagon's Iran desk, Larry Franklin, a committed neoconservative, was making contact with two officials of the American Israel Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the heavy-hitting Washington lobby, feeding them information that they subsequently passed on to Israeli embassy officials, including Naor Gilon, the embassy's chief of political affairs, and another yet-to-be-named official (who some speculate may be Danny Ayalon, Israel's ambassador to the U.S.). The focus of the Franklin-AIPAC spy cabal: U.S. intelligence on Iran.

Rumsfeld Says Extremists Winning Media War
 
What is quite revealing about this statement is the prior assumption that if one spends enough money on lies, one will ultimately be believed.

Moreover, these sources said that, in early 2004, Cheney was interviewed by federal prosecutors investigating the Plame Wilson leak and testified that neither he nor any of his senior aides were involved in unmasking her undercover CIA status to reporters and that no one in the vice president's office had attempted to discredit her husband, a vocal critic of the administration's pre-war Iraq intelligence. Cheney did not testify under oath or under penalty of perjury when he was interviewed by federal prosecutors.

The Terrance Yeakey Cover-Up
Terrance Yeakey was the first OKC police officer on the scene after the bombing at the OKC Murrah Building.

After being harassed for a full year after the bombing he told his ex-wife that they needed to get remarried because he felt he would be murdered and he wanted her and his daughter to get his insurance policy. They didn't get married in time and Officer Yeakey was found brutally tortured and murdered the day after he called his ex wife informing her that the Feds were on his tail and he was going to attempt to lose them.

His car was found on the side of the road full of his blood

His body was found a mile away on federal property

He had lacerations over his entire body, specifically his wrists and throat had been slashed.

He had been beaten profusely.

He had a bullet whole in the back of his head that entered at a 45 degree angle leaving no powder burns.

No autopsy was done on his body.

The county police searched the area for hours finding no murder weapons.

When the feds arrived they escorted the County police away from the crime.

5 minutes after the feds showed up they say they found a .38 hand gun right next to Officer Yeakey's body.

The Feds have never actually shown anyone the gun they supposedly found.

The torture and murder was ruled a suicide.

And last but not least, on August 7, 2006, the Financial Times of London reported that KBR, a subsidiary of Halliburton, is being investigated by Britain's Serious Fraud Office over the company's role in an alleged plot to pay more than $170 million in bribes to win $7 billion worth of contracts at a Nigerian oil plant.

For part of the period under investigation, the newspaper reported, Halliburton was headed by Vice President Dick Cheney.

So..... if Bush loses the Congress, will he blame it on Hugo Chavez?

'Mr. Secretary, What'd You Have Torched At Ft. Meade's 902nd Military Intel Group?'
Here’s what little we know: Late Friday, a crazy six-alarm fire gutted the three-story Building 54, where the 902nd Military Intelligence Group did its special work. That work included infiltrating a group of Quaker pacifists, running allegedly-banned Total Information Awareness and TALON surveillance monstrosities that DARPA was forced to hide somewhere else, and conducting “counterintelligence activities in support of Army commanders and to protect Army forces, secrets and technologies by detecting, identifying, neutralizing and exploiting foreign intelligence services and international terrorist threats.”

The Jackal's Feast Goes On
In other words, as oft reported here (and here and here), much of that money has simply disappeared – into corporate coffers, into copious baksheesh for the Bush-backed Iraqi government, into kickbacks for Congressional vultures, and doubtless into slush funds both for covert ops (including perhaps the Bushists' deliberate fomenting of terrorism and arming of militias) and domestic politics. We are most likely seeing the fruits of some of this blood money wash up on American screens at this very moment, as the GOP's last-ditch "Smear and Fear" campaign goes into hyperdrive.

Congress, FBI battle over anthrax investigation
 
The FBI is having a Zack attack.

The hard fact is that while the FBI made life for Dr. Stephen Hill a living hell, they had but ignored a real suspect, a man actually caught entering the storage area where the strain of Anthrax used in the letters was kept, without proper authorization AFTER being fired from his job for a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker.

But the FBI, following the advice of Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, focused totally on Dr. Hill while ignoring Dr. Zack, which either means the FBI is part of the cover-up of the real source of the anthrax letters, or is still as stupid as they were when they had but ignored the complete plans for the Japanese strike at Pearl Harbor months before the actual attack. (Source: Pearl Harbor: The Verdict Of History by Gordon Prange, appendix 7 published in 1986. Based on records from the JOINT CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Nov 15, 1945 to May 31, 1946.)

Mehlman: Democrats have "concern for terrorist civil liberties"
On the heels of George W. Bush signing the torture bill into law this week, Republican National Committee (RNC) chairman Ken Mehlman has sent an e-mail to GOP supporters calling this debasement of our national creed "an important reminder of what we can accomplish when the president and Congress work together for the safety of America."

We expect a charlatan like Mehlman to depict the rubber-stamp, GOP Congress bowing to Bush's every whim as an example of how they "work together" -- no harm, no foul. That's his job.

Mr. Mehlmen seems to confuse worrying about the civil rights of terrorists with worrying about the civil rights of anyone merely accused of being a terrorist. With the abysmally high record of false arrests coupled with the abysmally low record of actual terrorists found, Mr. Mehlman should be just as concerned with the civil rights of the accused as anyone else.

Yet Mr. Mehlman clearly seems to feel that terrorism is such a serious charge that even innocence should never be allowed as a defense! Thus, civil rights designed to prevent false imprisonment and torture are an inconvenience that must be dispensed with. - M. R.

Congress Members 'furious' at FBI for 'blackout' of 2001 anthrax attacks probe
"The FBI has completely shut Congress out of its now five-year investigation into anthrax attacks on Capitol Hill and around the nation, with accusations flying up and down Pennsylvania Avenue about the probe into the worst biochemical attacks in U.S. history," Paul Kane writes.
Of course the FBI has shut the Congress out. If the Congress knew the facts that we all know, they would understand that the FBI has had a real suspect all along.

Congress would then ask the question all America has been asking; why did the FBI focus on Stephen Hatfill, for whom no evidence existed of guilt, while pointedly avoiding Dr. Philip Zack, who was actually caught entering the storage area where the Anthrax used in the letters was kept, without authorization and after being fired from his job over a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker. - M.

This is a hoax. Adam Gadahn's REAL name is Adam Pearlman, and he is a grandson of a board member of the ADL.

This is a media hoax, no different that when the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador pretended to be a nurse to accuse Iraq of stealing Kuwait incubators and leaving babies to die on the floor.

If Kissinger’s past teaches anything about his “new world order” it is that he will get into bed with dictators and the cost of his policies in human lives lost will not mean too much to his sensibilities. A brief examination of his days as national security advisor and secretary of state under Nixon and Ford, confirm his taste for dirty, clandestine wars, as well as an ability to hide the truth from Congress and the American people.

The Cost of War: Hidden from Purview
Despite past objections about multiple requests for defense funds and inadequate justification for parts of the spending request, the defense bill that Congress approved Friday is no different. Either the clamor has not been loud enough or the American public hasn’t quite reckoned with the full consequences of fragmented and poorly justified defense spending not only for the fiscal health of the country, but also the vitality of the forces.

As Comptroller General David Walker testified in July, “neither DOD nor Congress knows how much the war on terror is costing or how appropriated funds are being used.” The Defense Department has ignored two successive pieces of legislation seeking detailed reporting on how the emergency funds have actually been spent. In effect, there is only a minimal effort to scrutinize budget request in advance, or spending, after the fact, for a quarter of the Pentagon’s resources.

The danger for prosecutors is that the sheer volume and sensitivity of the classified information Libby wants to introduce could scuttle the trial.

Banks' $7 Billion Tax-Exempt Bond Ruse Yields Nothing for Needy
During the past decade, local governments across the U.S. have issued more than 70 of these phantom bonds -- at least $7 billion of them. That's enough money to pay the salaries of 150,000 teachers in the U.S. for one year, based on an average pay of $46,597. Proceeds from the tax-exempt bond sales are supposed to be used to improve homes for the poor or upgrade health care for the elderly or supply computers to inner-city schools.

Taxpayers never get most of those benefits; the winners are the banks, insurance companies and financial advisers that get paid millions of dollars for crafting these transactions and then profit by using bond proceeds for their own investment gains.

Who knew what, when? When the base finds out who's feeding this monster, they're not going to be happy. The people who want to see this thing blow up are ABC News and a lot of Democratic operatives, people funded by George Soros.

U.S. Government Caught Red-Handed Releasing Staged Al-Qaeda Videos
Revelations that the US government had been in possession of footage released on Sunday depicting alleged Al-Qaeda hijackers and Osama Bin Laden since 2001 and evidence that the footage itself was filmed by security agencies, went unquestioned by the media - who blindly towed the official line that the tape was released by Al-Qaeda. This is smoking gun proof that the U.S. government is staging the release of alleged Al-Qaeda tapes and it demands an immediate Congressional investigation.
Portions of the tape are admitted to have been made by "a security agency", while others are clipped from a UK documentary. Despite claims that "Al Qaeda" released the tape, other sources reported that the US had been in possession of the bin-Laden footage since at least 2001. - M. R.

Readers of Britain’s newspapers are regularly accosted with blood-curdling banner headlines screaming of the “thwarting” of potentially catastrophic “terror plots”, of “Islamic fanatics” being apprehended in daring midnight raids. “Chilling” details, “revealed” by anonymous police and government “sources”, underline why “we” must accept a “trade-off” between civil liberties and “security”, the editorials assure an apprehensive populace. Months or even years later, however, news that many of the “plots” never actually existed is buried behind the latest sex scandal or exploitative “expose” — if reported at all.

I.e., Hastert wants Justice to investigate the very people who broke the story and thus got the GOP in trouble.


 
Republican cover-up charge over sex e-mails to boy, 16
Dennis Hastert, the Republican speaker of the House of Representatives, yesterday condemned Mr Foley's actions as "abhorrent" and "an obscene breach of trust", adding: "His immediate resignation must now be followed by the full weight of the criminal justice system."

But it has emerged that Mr Hastert was told about some of the e-mails months ago by congressman Thomas Reynolds, chairman of the Republican national congressional committee, who failed to pursue the matter.

How do you separate the men from the boys on Capitol Hill?

STATE OF DENIAL
There was a vast difference between what the White House and the Pentagon knew about the situation in Iraq and what they were saying publicly. But the discrepancy was not surprising. In memos, reports and internal debates, high-level officials of the Bush administration have voiced their concern about the United States' ability to bring peace and stability to Iraq since early in the occupation.
In other words, they have been lying all along. - M. R.

Latest pile of manure from Homeland Security
"Iraqi citizens have reported our U.S. Troops & Coalition Forces will be the intended target of a major chemical/biological attack in the "Green Zone" 10 - 14 days from the November, 2006 U.S. Elections."
Note that the source makes the link between this supposed attack and the election. Now, who would GAIN from a WMD attack on the Green Zone? Certainly Bush and the GOP (and don't forget that Karl Rove promised the GOP an "October Surprise" to help them win in November just a week ago).

A WMD attack on our kids would get the families of those soldiers angry, and could be pointed to as "proof" that Iraq really DID have WMDs all along, and gee weren't we all wrong about George Bush calling hum a liar about Iraq's nookular bombs, and all that?

Qui bono? THAT is who is really behind this threat of an attack. - M. R.

CIA counter-proliferation front company's cover blown by State Department official two years before White House leak to media.
 
U.S. intelligence sources, speaking on conditions of strict anonymity, have told WMR that the cover status of Brewster Jennings & Associates, the counter-proliferation front company that Valerie Plame Wilson and her CIA counter-proliferation non-official cover (NOC) colleagues used as a front for their operations, was blown in two phone calls placed in June 2001 to two foreign intelligence agents in Washington, DC by then-Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Marc Grossman. The calls were intercepted by the FBI, which had targeted the communications of Grossman and the two foreign intelligence agents as part of a counter-intelligence investigation, according to the sources. - M.

Congressman wants FBI anthrax briefing
A New Jersey congressman said Wednesday it should have taken the FBI days, not years, to determine the anthrax used in 2001 that killed five people was much less sophisticated than believed.
You can send Rep. Holt a message HERE Please include the Hartford Courant news story that identifies Dr. Philip Zack as having been caught entering the Ft. Detrick where the Anthrax used in the letters was stored, WITHOUT proper authorization and AFTER being fired from his job over a racially motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker. Ask Rep. Holt to ask WHY Zack was left alone while Dr. Stephen Hatfill's life was destroyed. Ask Rep. Holt WHY the FBI let itself be led around by Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, who pointed the finger at Hatfill.

Then ask if this sudden "discovery" of the much simpler anthrax is';t just another FBI deception to take the heat off of Ft. Detrick and Dr. Zack.

Do it now. I'll wait. - M. R.



 
Taliban to ABC News: OBL Alive and Safe
"Sheikh Osama is all right. He is safe," Dadullah told ABC News' Rahimullah Yusufzai. Dadullah would not disclose the location from where he was calling.

When pressed for evidence to show that bin Laden is alive, Dadullah hinted that there is a possibility of a tape being sent to media organizations to prove that the al Qaeda head isn't dead. Dadullah, however, declined to say as to when this tape would be made available.

FLASHBACK: Official: Unusual coating in anthrax mailings
The purity, fineness and potency of the anthrax -- particularly that mailed to Sens. Tom Daschle, D-South Dakota, and Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont -- makes it highly unlikely that the sender of the letters made and treated the spores in a makeshift setting, according to officials involved in the massive investigation.
What evidence there is in this case points to a US Government scientist, Dr. Philip Zack, as the man who stole the Anthrax used in the letters. The anthrax used in the letters is a genetic match to the strain used in the Fort Detrick Laboratory, and Dr. Zack was caught on security equipment entering that lab late one night without proper authorization AFTER being fired from his job over a racially-motivated attack on an Egyptian co-worker.

Clearly, there is a case against Dr. Zack. But, spurred on by Dr. Barbara Rosenberg, the FBI kept its focus solely on Dr. Stephen Hatfill, against whom absolutely NO evidence of involvement ever existed.

So here we are, 5 years later, and the FBI is now trying to claim that, well, all the prior evidence is wrong, the anthrax did not come from a US Government lab, and therefore there are no leads to follow any more.

Can you say "cover-up?"

I knew you could! - M. R.

Five years after the anthrax attacks that killed five people, the FBI is now convinced that the lethal powder sent to the Senate was simply made and contained nothing that conclusively links the case to any specific source, widening the pool of possible suspects in a frustratingly slow investigation.
"Trust us, the government had NOTHING to do with it. Nothing. NOTHING!"

Crossfire War - Tehran Plans Nuclear Terror Attack Inside US - Ramadan 9-24
 
This is just more "Booga booga" to scare the weak-minded into supporting an unprovoked attack on Iran. How do we know? Common sense (uncommon enough in the US these days). Why would Tehran do such a thing?

Even if Iran had one or two nuclear weapons (which nobody has found any evidence of), why would they attack the US? The US would retaliate with hundreds of warheads. Iran knows this.

Iran is trying to avoid war by all means short of surrendering her right (under a treaty signed with the United States) to build power stations and make fuel rods for them. In contrast, the US is searching for any excuse to invade Iran and no doubt would do so even if Iran were to suspend nuclear enrichment.

So, Que Bono, who GAINS if there is a nuclear terror strike inside the US? Who gets what they want? Who WANTS the US to wage war against Iran? Who is really behind "Al Qaeda"? - M. R.



 
FLASHBACK: The US Invasion of Afghanistan was Announced Months Before the 9/11 Attacks
 
In early 2001, while the American public was distracted by the Gary Condit scandal, The US Government was already informing other governments of plans to invade Afghanistan in October following the collapse of negotiations over a pipline right-of-way. Of course, the American people would have never supported an invasion over a pipeline right-of-way. So, 9-11 happened, EXACTLY when the US Government needed the American people to be angry enough to invade a foreign nation.

EXACTLY, when the US Government needed it.

EXACTLY. - M. R.

Report: Theory in anthrax case broadens suspect pool
This morning the Hartford Courant reports that an FBI microbiologist says whoever mailed that anthrax to Lundgren did not need sophisticated equipment or intimate knowledge to produce it.
"Oh, juyst about ANYONE could have whipped the stuff up in their kitchen, sooooooooooo no need to look at Fort Detrick and their ex-staffers. Honest. Really. No fooling."

(Ahem).

What pointed the finger at Fort Detrick as the source of the Anthrax spores used in the letters was not just the high degree of "weaponization" of the spores, but DNA tests which showed the anthrax in the letters to be the exact same strain used at Fort Detrich. Even if one buys this lathetic attempt to blur the issue, and believes in a kitchen-sink bioweapons lab, the fact remains that the original source spores still had to come from Fort Detrick. - M.

The group, calling itself Al-Qaeda in Palestine, warned of more killings. It said its next attack in the region would be "more destructive" and would use "trucks full of explosives."

The National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center’s (NBACC) $128 million, 160,000-square-foot facility is under construction at Fort Detrick, Md. There, the United States has already weaponized more than a dozen diseases—including anthrax, plague, botulism and ebola—and bioengineered war-friendly “improvements.” Scientists are also using DNA-synthesizing techniques to fabricate genetically altered or man-made viruses, and to study the feasibility of creating germ weapons targeting particular ethnicities.

It was easy to find Iraqi reporters who would write U.S. military-friendly op-ed pieces for a little extra cash. But hiring those who would go to the dangerous Anbar province was altogether a different matter. The reporters, cameramen, and sound operators we spoke with all said the same thing: they would work in Ramadi and Fallujah as part of a Rapid Response Cell only if they were embedded with U.S. troops. But because the whole point was that they were to report news that at least appeared to be independent of the military, this was impossible. We even explored whether we could embed our reporters with Iraqi troops there. But this also proved to be untenable.

Government oil lease blunder hidden 6 years
Interior Department officials realized in 2000 that their offshore lease agreements with oil companies shortchanged American taxpayers, but they covered up their multibillion-dollar mistake for six years, an investigator said Wednesday.

After combing through 11,000 e-mail messages and interviewing 29 current and former Interior Department employees, federal investigators still aren't ready to say who they think told a staffer to omit contract language that would have forced oil companies operating in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico to pay billions of dollars in royalty payments as energy prices rose.

If you want to make a man your enemy or even get him to hate you, just try and tell him the truth about a politician, his political party, his church or about Israel. I don’t’ have the exact quote handy, but a famous writer once said, the men the people most admire are the greatest liars, while the men they most hate are those who try and tell them the truth. Those of us in the truth movement are hated by those we are trying to educate. This writer has made enemies of his own relations; in both the political and religious field. Facts mean nothing to a person, once his mind is made up. You simply cannot teach some men anything, because they already know so much that is not true.

But even those who accept a new fake terror attack at face value will likely see it as a complete failure of all the enhanced security we have had to endure over the last 5 years. All the peeking into our personal lives, the warrantless taps on our phones, the loss of medical privacy, the groping of our wives and daughters at the airports, the forced unlocking of luggage followed by the inevitable epidemic of looting, the "black bag" searches of our homes without our knowledge and permission, together with all the headline-making arrests that turned out to be little more than flimsy excuses to generate headlines, will be seen as totally ineffective, a waste of money, and an affront to the Constitution. - M.

John Lennon, Still a Security Threat
When Justice Department attorneys urge courts not to release national security information provided by a foreign government under a Freedom of Information Act suit, they argue that the courts should defer to the experts in the Department of Homeland Security and the White House.

That's precisely what's at issue in a Freedom of Information Act suit pending before the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The case of John Lennon's FBI files illustrates the federal government's obsession with secrecy, which it justifies with appeals to national security.

Filed last year in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., by former KBR employee Julie McBride, the lawsuit claims the giant defense contractor billed the government for thousands of meals it never served, inflated the number of soldiers using its fitness and Internet centers, and regularly siphoned off great quantities of supplies destined for American soldiers.

It also showed two men that Al Jazeera said were Wael al-Shahri and Hamza al-Ghamdi, among the 19 hijackers identified after the attacks.

False Flag Operations: Declassified Military Documents Show How US Government Planned Terrorist Attacks Against its Own Citizens
As reported by ABC News, stunning military documents codenamed "Operation Northwoods" were declassified in recent years and show how in 1962, the top US military leaders planned an operation to create terror attacks against its own cities and kill US citizens.

The documents state that through the fabrication of false evidence, the US would blame Cuba and gain public support for an unpopular war against Castro. They included developing a fake Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, the use of airplanes, and much more.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it? - M. R.

A new videotape by al Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri, has surfaced on the Web with an appearance by a Californian-turned-al Qaeda member wanted by the FBI, according to a counterterrorism expert.
Folks, this is a HOAX, with a capital "H".

Adam Gadahn's real name is Adam Pearlman. Even the FBI's wanted poster for him lists Adam Pearlman as one of the names he goes by. Adam's grandfather was on the board of directors for the ADL.

But court records released since then suggest that what Gonzales called a "deadly plot" was virtually the pipe dream of a few disgruntled men with almost no ability to pull it off. The suspects have raised questions in court about the FBI informers' role in keeping the plan alive.

On terrorism, Bush maligns history and our intelligence
There is something sad about a grown man playing children's make-believe war games in a tree house in grandpa's back yard - which is how President George W. Bush came across Thursday night in his speech on the importance of winning the war in Iraq in the global battle against terrorism. Rarely does a leader of a great country like the United States malign history, his people's intelligence and the dignity of over a billion Muslims in one speech, but Bush did that Thursday night and will probably keep doing it for a while.


 
Highly enriched uranium found in Iran
 
As this article admits, traces of highly enriched uranium are commonly found on used equipment. What this article does NOT mention is the traces of highly enriched uranium found on Iraqi equipment that was thought to have been planted by US "inspectors".

FLASHBACK: The very strange saga of Adam Gadahn
Gadahn has become a cause célèbre for the American right, a made-to-order American traitor from central casting. What if he really was manufactured? His confused background, with a detour through heavy metal, his moving in with his grandparents (grandfather on the ADL board), his rare internet essay anachronistically written from a Zionist perspective and not the perspective of the American government in 1995 (as if the Zionists had already written the post-September 11 script), his immediate ‘conversion’ to Islam and association with ‘radical’ Muslims – it’s all just a bit too contrived. We have seen other examples of how Israel has infiltrated Islamist organizations (most recently in Lebanon). Have the Zionists infiltrated al Qaeda at its highest levels? Or is it more accurate to look at al Qaeda as a ‘false flag’ Zionist organization?

--> 1993 World Trade Center bombing evidence suppressed by chief federal prosecutors in case -- Patrick J. Fitzgerald and Michael Chertoff.
U.S. federal prosecutors suppressed critical evidence in trial of 1993 World Trade Center bombers. According to U.S. intelligence sources, the FBI and Justice Department sat on volumes of translations of Arabic telephone intercepts gathered before the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center from U.S.- and Sudan-based Muslim militants who once worked for U.S. intelligence in the mujaheddin war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. The critical intelligence, which demonstrated a link between the CIA and "Afghan Arab" muhajeddin forces, including those loyal to Osama bin Laden, was never introduced into the trial of the Brooklyn- and Jersey City-based based cell that included the blind Egyptian cleric Shaikh Omar Abdul Rahman, Ramzi Yousef, and Eyad Ismail.

Well, this piece seems to spend a lot of time telling us "there's no denying...flaws of hyperbole..." but it never gets around to enumerating all of the stuff "he got right."

Also, twice it tells us he "committed suicide" without mentioning the questionable circumstances of two gunshot wounds to the head. He even tells us exactly why Webb would have decided to kill himself, with his life falling apart.

It seems this piece is trying to say nice things, but concentrates on delivering more veiled attacks. A fist wrapped in velvet. - M. R.

The Liquid Bomb Hoax: The Larger Implications
Clearly the decision to cook up the phony bomb plot was not motivated by economic interests, but domestic political reasons. The Blair administration, already highly unpopular for supporting Bush’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, was under attack for his unconditional support for Israel’s invasion of Lebanon, his refusal to call for an immediate ceasefire and his unstinting support for Bush’s servility to US Zionist lobbies. Even within the Labor party over a hundred backbenchers were speaking out against his policies, while even junior cabinet ministers such as Prescott stated that Boss Bush’s foreign policy smelled of the barnyard. Bush was not yet cornered by his colleagues in the same way as Blair, but unpopularity was threatening to lead his Republican party to congressional defeat and possible loss of a majority of seats.

Senator puts 'secret hold' on bill to open federal records
In an ironic twist, legislation that would open up the murky world of government contracting to public scrutiny has been derailed by a secret parliamentary maneuver.

An unidentified senator placed a "secret hold" on legislation introduced by Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Barack Obama, D-Ill., that would create a searchable database of government contracts, grants, insurance, loans and financial assistance, worth $2.5 trillion last year. The database would bring transparency to federal spending and be as simple to use as conducting a Google search.

Ore. sailor faces espionage charges
A sailor accused of taking a Navy laptop loaded with classified information and peddling its contents to a foreign government will face a court-martial, the Navy said Friday.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Ariel J. Weinmann, of Salem, Ore., will face six charges — including three counts of espionage — that were approved by Adm. John B. Nathman, commander of the U.S. Navy’s Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk.

The Navy has said Weinmann, who is being held at the brig at Norfolk Naval Air Station, gave classified information related to national defense to an undisclosed foreign government before he destroyed the computer.

Notice how very carefully this article's writer goes out of their way to not disclose for which country Weinmann was allegedly collecting this information and passing it on.

Were it Russia, China, North Korea, etc., that country would have its name writ large in this article.

Okay, so let me see if I have this right. According to a Danish translator, the Soviets trained the Islamic forces and gave 'nookular' weapons to the Iranians.

Right.

As I recall, it was the US and CIA that trained the Muslims during Afghanistan, and while the US stopped short of providing nuclear weapons, they were not shy about providing a lot of other weapons to kill Russians with. So this not only appears to be more make-a-war propaganda, but is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. - M. R.

Despite Israel in the recent conflict pushing it right up to the edge militarily against Lebanon in order to provoke Syria into taking a more direct part in supporting its client Hizbollah which, in turn, would give Israel an excuse to attack Syria, the Syrians stood their ground and resisted the temptation to be drawn into the fighting. And, because Syria resisted getting into a fight with Israel, this meant that Iran would not be drawn in to support its ally Syria, which, yet again in turn, meant that the US would not have a legitimate excuse to come in to the fray to support their client, Israel, the end result being that Plan ‘A’, to start an all-defining war against Syria and Iran, just didn’t work. One now has to ask; so what’s Plan ‘B’?

Liquid Bombers Prove: "They Hate Our Freedoms!"
Muslims were planning to blow up a bunch of jetliners enroute from London to America - or so say George Bush and Tony Blair.

Bush's Weapon of Mass Deception
It is a week since news broke in London about an alleged plot to blow up nine commercial jetliners and there are emerging indicators that Bush and Blair exaggerated the truth about the actual readiness of the so-called plot. And yes, I mean so-called plot. Why would Bush and Blair hype a terrorist threat? A very simple answer. The White House was on notice that Seymour Hersh's story that the Bush Administration encouraged Israel to invade Lebanon as part of a broader scheme to set the stage for war with Iran. Tony Blair, Bush's enabler, went along with the ruse.


 
FLASHBACK: The Crimes of Mena
The newly unearthed papers show the real Seal as far more impressive and well-connected than the character played by Dennis Hopper in a made-for-TV movie some years ago, loosely based on the smuggler's life. The film portrayed the pudgy pilot as a hapless victim, caught in a cross fire between bungling but benign government agencies and Latin drug lords. The truth sprinkled through the documents is a richer - and altogether more sinister - matter of national and individual corruption. It is a tale of massive, socially devastating crime, of what seems to have been an official cover-up to match, and, not least, of the strange reluctance of so- called mainstream American journalism to come to grips with the phenomenon and its ominous implications - even when the documentary evidence had appeared.

Police in Britain find suitcase with bomb parts
Police searching woods for clues in an alleged plot to bomb trans-Atlantic passenger jets have found a suitcase containing components for an improvised explosive device, the British Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.

The wood is near the home of one of two dozen suspects arrested Aug. 10 in connection with the foiled bomb plot.

Oh yeah, "I'm building an improvised device for a terror attack. I've got a shed at the bottom of my garden but I'll bury it in woodland just in case I get caught. Hopefully no-one will see me when I'm burying it."

The characters and behavior of the few known liquid bomb suspects are completely inconsistent with any notion that they were preparing to kill themselves in acts of mass terror - mirroring the pre-attack demeanor of the 7/7 patsies.


 
“Be Very, Very Sceptical”
...In all of this, the one thing of which I am certain is that the timing is deeply political. This is more propaganda than plot. Of the over one thousand British Muslims arrested under anti-terrorist legislation, only twelve per cent are ever charged with anything. That is simply harrassment of Muslims on an appalling scale. Of those charged, 80% are acquitted. Most of the very few - just over two per cent of arrests - who are convicted, are not convicted of anything to do terrorism, but of some minor offence the Police happened upon while trawling through the wreck of the lives they had shattered..."

Mystery of the Microbe Letters
Someone[s] apparently got a hold of some of Uncle Sam's super-secret Anthrax stash and cultured it, weaponized it crudely, and started mailing the stuff out. They could have mailed a hundred letters, or maybe even a thousand for all we know. For that matter, the Anthrax spores could have been distributed in far less visible and considerably more effective ways, if the idea was to infect as many people as possible. Instead, it was mailed to a handful of precisely the kind of targets that guaranteed it would be quickly discovered and widely reported. Thoughts, plots, conspiracies?

Weeding Out Terrorists
"It is involuntary muscular behaviors that are across the board, that doesn't matter what you look like. You don't have to look like a terrorist to exhibit these involuntary behaviors," he says.
So ... people who just don't like flying, or who don't like having their daughters fondled will be kept off the planes. - M. R.


 
What Does A Terrorist Preparing To Bomb 10 Airliners Do Beforehand? Buys Cakes
The characters and behavior of the few known liquid bomb suspects are completely inconsistent with any notion that they were preparing to kill themselves in acts of mass terror - mirroring the pre-attack demeanor of the 7/7 patsies.

A CCTV image (top) shows one of the suspects, Tayib Rauf, entering a bulk order supermarket in Birmingham just two hours before anti-terror police swooped in to grab him for his alleged role in a plot to bomb ten transatlantic airliners. What were the tools of terror Rauf was acquiring before his kamikaze death mission? Knives? Peroxide to make the deadly liquid bomb? Cameras to detonate the bombs?

No - he was buying cakes.



 
Plame lawyer plans to force Cheney, Rove testimony
A lawyer plans to use a legal precedent that allowed President Bill Clinton to be sued while in office to force Vice President Dick Cheney and presidential adviser Karl Rove to testify in a lawsuit brought by former CIA operative Valerie Plame and her husband.

The civil lawsuit accuses them and others of conspiring to publicly identify Plame as a CIA agent to punish her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, for writing in an op-ed piece that the Bush administration twisted intelligence about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in the run-up to the Iraq war.

Bush Sees No End to War on Terrorism
"America is safer than it has been, yet it is not yet safe," Bush told reporters at the National Counterterrorism Center just outside Washington. "The enemy has got an advantage when it comes to attacking our homeland: They got to be right one time and we've got to be right 100 percent of the time to protect the American people."
Bush sees no end to 'War on Terrorism' because this administration practices 'diplomacy' with all the finesse of a bulldozer flipping a souffle.

Additionally, you have to remember just how profitable these wars are for his 'base' - Companies like Haliburton, et all.

This country isn't any safer than it's been in times past: its citizens are fed fear 24/7, and fear makes people react, not think.

We all need to take a deep breath, and look way beyond the sound bytes on the (non) news shows, and the talking heads on television. These folks are telling the American public precisely what the government wants them to hear. - M. R.



 
'People are definitely sceptical'
When the government announced last Thursday that it had foiled a massive terror plot, broadcasters and newspapers were barraged with a wave of sceptical views from listeners and readers. Nearly a week on, are people still so distrustful? Patrick Barkham takes to the streets to find out


 
BUYING CAKES BEFORE ARREST
The 22-year-old brother of Rashid Rauf who is being quizzed in Pakistan, was captured on CCTV ordering cakes and buns for his family's bakery business.

The film was taken as police prepared to swoop on him and 22 others they believe may have been involved in the plot to blow up jets over America.

But Mohammed Nazam who owns the shop where he was filmed insisted the picture shows he is innocent.



 
Never Trust a Man with a Comb-Over
I'm acquainting my daughter with other important things about men, too, including: Never trust a man with a comb-over. Yes, that self deception in which a balding man deludes himself into thinking that growing his hair out to an incredible length on one side of his head, then simply flinging it over to the other side, will cause others to think it looks as good as it does to himself. For example, take this fellow:


 
The UK Terror plot: what's really going on?
None of the alleged terrorists had made a bomb. None had bought a plane ticket. Many did not even have passports, which given the efficiency of the UK Passport Agency would mean they couldn't be a plane bomber for quite some time.


 
Olbermann Exposes Nexus Of Politics And Terror
During a prime time segment on his MSNBC show last night, anchor Keith Olbermann presented ten clear examples where the Bush administration had issued terror alerts days after politically damaging revelations and questioned the credibility of each of the alleged plots' authenticity in light of astounding evidence to the contrary.


 
I bet you it will turn out to be a hoax
Despite all the revelations about the latest 'terror plot', politicians and security chiefs got it wrong before and are likely to have got it wrong now too.


 
When all else fails, GOP dials 9/11
It's an even-numbered year, and we're getting near Labor Day. So, it was predictable that the Bush administration and Republicans would exploit the foiled terrorism plot in the United Kingdom to save their political hides.

Why the Terror Plots Are False
There are strong reasons to believe that Muslims are not responsible for the recently unveiled terror plots both in Toronto and London. To understand the reasons why these plots are false, one has to begin with himself and think from inside out. I would begin with myself as a Muslim, who shares the beliefs that are attributed to the alleged terrorists, but does not feel compelled to even think about murdering innocent civilians.


 
Terrorism charges collapse like house of cards
Initially the authorities thought that Michigan's Mackinac Bridge was the intended target because the men had pictures of the bridge on a digital camera in their possesion.
I guess that means I am planning to blow up...

1. The USS Arizona

2. The neighbor's dog

3. My wife

4. The dent in my Honda

5. A pineapple

6. The moon

Because those are all pictures I have had in my digital camera. - M. R.



 
Is conspiracy a war crime?
 
Yes it is, and let us start with the conspiracy to lie this nation into a war. - M. R.


 
No terror groups in cell phone case
The FBI said Monday it had no information to indicate that the three Texas men arrested with about 1,000 cell phones in their van had any direct connection to known terrorist groups.


 
Heah Cum De Boogeyman
The Terror Alert Industry was only a backup system; something designed to add a few percentage points to the Fear Index of the common voter. Diebold had the game in hand but that game only works when there’s a workable margin. They did what they had to do in Ohio, Florida and elsewhere and they stole another election. The last three elections were stolen and the success of those affairs has begun to spark an international growth industry in rigged elections from Mexico to wherever they are needed by the few at the expense of the many.


 
The "Liquid bomb" plot a smokescreen for a counter-coup in Britain?
There is an increasing body of evidence on both sides of the Atlantic that Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has engaged in a pattern of news manufacturing and illegal activities to hype the "liquid bomb" aviation threat and influence political developments. As WMR reported on Aug. 11, the move that prompted Murdoch, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and George W. Bush to stage a phony terror threat -- namely, the attempted political coup against Blair by members of his own Cabinet and Labor Party -- was based on a Murdoch-approved illegal wiretap by his London-based News of the World royals editor that hacked into the voice and text cell phone messages of three members of Prince Charles' staff.


 
UK made arrests on Washington pressure: Plane attack was not imminent: official
NBC News reported that US and British authorities had a significant disagreement over when to move in on the suspects in the alleged plot to bring down trans-Atlantic airliners bound for the United States.

A British official said the uk police were planning to continue to run surveillance for at least another week to try to obtain more evidence, while American officials pressured them to arrest the suspects sooner.

In contrast to previous reports, the official suggested an attack was not imminent, saying the suspects had not yet purchased any airline tickets. In fact, some did not even have passports.

One has to wonder if this was just a distraction to take American eyes away from the agony of Israel's invasion of Lebanon.

And think about that last sentence very carefully. When you are travelling to any foreign country, how do you get on a plane without a passport? - M. R.



 
FEMA Trailers Exhibit Unsafe Levels of Formaldehyde
n May, a public interest group conducted indoor air testing in FEMA-issued trailers in Louisiana and Mississippi to investigate reports from Katrina evacuees experiencing a variety of respiratory problems associated with formaldehyde exposure.[1] These tests revealed that 94 percent of the trailers tested had indoor levels of formaldehyde in excess of levels that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) have identifi
