School Guards Break Child's Arm And Arrest Her For Dropping Cake
Police and security violence continues unabated

School security guards in Palmdale, CA have been caught on camera assaulting a 16-year-old girl and breaking her arm after she spilled some cake during lunch and left some crumbs on the floor after cleaning it up.
The incident occurred last week at Knight High School in Palmdale and was caught on a cell phone camera by another pupil who was then also assaulted by the security guards.
Watch video of the incident here and here.
The girl, Pleajhai Mervin, told Fox News LA that she was bumped while queuing for lunch and dropped the cake.
After being ordered to clean it up and then re-clean the spot three times, she attempted to leave the area out of embarrassment but was jumped on by security who forced her onto a table, breaking her wrist in the process.
Pleajhai also says that the security guard in the picture yelled "hold still nappy-head" at her, which at the time she did not know was a racist comment.
In an even more shocking development the security guards later had the mother of the girl arrested after she sought out an attorney and demanded that the guard be arrested, telling her that if she wanted the guard detained then she herself would also be charged with battery after she allegedly pushed the guard and an assistant principal of the school.
She has also been suspended from her job at another school in the county.
The school expelled Pleajhai for five days before then having her arrested for battery and for littering (the dropping of the cake).
Then they had the pupil who captured the video arrested along with his sister who was merely present at the scene.
A walkout is planned for this morning by some students, after which the protesters will call for the firing of the main security guard involved.
The incident serves as another unbelievable case in the wave of police brutality sweeping the country.
In recent days we have covered multiple incidents of this nature and have compiled them into a page which will no doubt be added to in the months to come.
Commentators have linked the increased cases of brutality with a post 9/11 mentality in America where civil liberties have been totally diminished and the anointed "authorities" simply consider themselves above the law.
Former Reagan government official Paul Craig Roberts, for instance, has succinctly described the mentality as having turned "an epidemic of US police brutality into a pandemic".
The media reports linked above clearly sympathize with the girl and her mother but only because the girl "fully complied with the guards' orders".
What on earth have things come to when children are being physically assaulted and arrested in schools by huge fat thugs 5 times their size for "not complying with orders"?
Police and security officials are being trained that it's OK to beat, torture and taser anyone should they not answer their questions or comply with their every order.
The "security" and well being of citizens is no longer the concern of these moronic hired beefbrains who revel in their false positions of power.
Ask yourself, why is the security guy pictured above wearing shades indoors?
Because it is part of the gang mentality of these idiots who think its cool to put the fear of life into small kids and then break their bones if they fail to cower like mice when picked upon.
We have been covering the rise of the police state mentality in tandem with the erosion of liberty for some time now.
The incident narrated above represents a stark evolution.
Watch the following clip from around ten years ago which was featured in Alex Jones' 2004 Film Martial Law: Rise of the Police State, where police assault and break the arms of peaceful protestors.
The difference now is that the police and security guards are breaking the arms of children and tasering students for merely asking questions or for dropping birthday cake.

Epidemic Of Police Brutality & Harassment Sweeps America & UK
An epidemic of violence and harassment is sweeping the country.
Police are being trained that the general public are the enemy and that they can engage in outright brutality without recourse.
Taser deaths are skyrocketing because the police have been ordered to use "pain compliance", otherwise known as torture, to subdue and oppress the citizenry.
Police are also increasingly completely unaware of the laws they are supposed to enforce and have resolved to invent offences out of thin air as an excuse to harass people.

Is this how you want your school to behave?
High school police and security abuse.

More than 100 students were in the hallway that morning as a police dog passed close by, barking and excitedly sniffing their backpacks.

At one point, the dog grabs a backpack with its mouth and shakes it.

At another time, the dog jumps briefly on its hind legs onto his handler as they check students huddling in an alcove.

Get on the ground!    Get on the ground an officer yells as students fall to the floor.

Hands on your head!   Hands on your head!   Do you understand?

Stratford High School, the City of Goose Creek and the Berkeley County School District:  We find that conditions at the school violate the constitutional and statutory rights of juveniles.

Youth suffer harm or the risk of harm in their mental health and their medical care.

The job of schools is to protect juveniles from harm, not place them in harm's way.

Youth Institutions, 'Youth Camps,' Paramilitary Abuse
Naked, Dark, cells smelling of urine and feces
On the day of our arrival we observed a 13-year-old boy sitting in a restraint chair.   Reportedly, he was placed in the restraint chair to prevent self-mutilation.
No staff approached him, and he was not allowed to attend school or receive programming, counseling, or medication.
This boy had been severely sexually and physically abused by family members and had been in several psychiatric hospitals prior to being sent to the Institution.
Just before our arrival, he had been locked naked in his empty cell.   His cell smelled of urine, and we observed torn pieces of toilet paper on the concrete floor that he had been using as a pillow.
Girls in the SIU (Special Intervention Unit for youth with behavioral and disciplinary problems, and youth who are suicidal) are punished for acting out or for being suicidal by being placed in a cell called the “dark room.”
The “dark room” is a locked, windowless isolation cell with lighting controlled by staff.
When the lights are turned out, as the girls reported they are when the room is in use, the room is completely dark.
The room is stripped of everything but a drain in the floor which serves as a toilet.
Most girls are stripped naked when placed in the “dark room.”   According to staff, the reason girls must remove their clothing before being placed in the darkroom, is that there is metal grating on the ceiling and the cell door which could be used for hanging attempts by suicidal girls.
Such suicidal hazards should be remedied rather than requiring suicidal children to strip naked.
One girl told us that the weekend prior to our visit, she was placed naked in the “dark room” from Friday until Monday morning.
She stated that she was allowed out of the cell once a day to take a shower, but received all her meals inside of the cell.
Another girl told us that in July 2002, she was placed in the “dark room” with the lights off for three days with little access to water as her requests for water were largely ignored.
During our visit to the girls’ SIU there were 14 girls present.   Nine of the girls had been locked in bare cells for more than a week; one girl had been locked in a bare cell for 114 days.
The conditions we observed in the SIU are particularly inhumane.
The cells are extremely hot with inadequate ventilation.   Some girls are naked in a dark room where they must urinate and defecate in a hole that they cannot flush.
Punched and slapped as punishment for being re-committed
More than half of the youth reported that staff had physically abused them.   A number of youth reported, and some line staff confirmed, that youth who are re-committed are taken to one of the isolation rooms in the intake area and punched and slapped by staff as punishment for being re-committed.
When asked why abuses were allowed to occur without consequences to staff, we were told that staff shortages inhibited the facility administration’s ability to follow-up on youth’s complaints.   Staff also stated that some staff abused youth with impunity because they were favored by the administration.
When asked why staff did not report these allegations, most staff responded that they feared retaliation.
One youth stated that a staff person had shoved his head into a toilet.
The youth wanted to know how the administration would respond to complaints.   One administrative official responded that youth were not allowed to defend themselves against staff who assaulted them.
Based on our document review and conversations with staff and juveniles, OC spray use often is undocumented and unreported.   We find that OC spray is used regularly for minor infractions or for punishment.
Reporting led to retaliation, or their allegations were not taken seriously.   A medical clinic incident notebook documents the nursing staff’s treatment of youth’s injuries from alleged physical abuse by staff or pepper spray use.
However, these abuse allegations appear never to have been investigated, even when an injury was noted by the nurse and could have possibly substantiated the youth’s claim.
Many youth reported that the acting head nurse routinely denied medical care and access to appropriate health services.
The girls in the advanced cottage alleged that a security guard engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior by standing in front of the uncovered windows of the girls’ cottage and observing them while they were undressing before going to bed.
OC Spray and punishment
[OC oleoresin capsicum or Pepper Spray as detailed from the The Pepper Spray store:   It hurts them ... it will slam their eyes shut for 10 minutes...
From Capsicum Spray—The Record to Date:   When used against a person, OC spray typically has a severe impact.   Skin exposure causes tingling, intense burning pain, swelling, redness and occasionally blistering.
Respiratory responses include burning of the throat, wheezing, dry cough, shortness of breath, gagging, gasping, inability to breathe or speak and, rarely, cyanosis, apnea and respiratory arrest.
Inhalation of OC spray can cause acute hypertension which in turn can cause headache, and increase the risk of stroke or heart attack.
The most problematical use of OC spray will occur when persons are engaged in political demonstrations or are already in police or correctional custody.]
Boys in the SIU reported that staff sprayed under their locked cell doors and that staff sprayed boys in the face while they were hog-tied.   Boys also told us that staff sprayed into the air while boys were doing exercises for punishment in the SIU.
Incident reports make clear that suicidal youth are sprayed for their suicidal gestures and behaviors and that youth locked in isolation rooms who bang on the door of their cell are sprayed.
A log entry for the SIU indicates that a suicidal girl was sprayed because she refused to remove her clothes before being placed in the “dark room.”
Youth reported that staff routinely sprayed youth for failing to perform military exercises.   Our review of incident reports confirms that OC spray is used for this purpose.
For example, a 13-year-old boy was sprayed because he did not perform exercises.   Reportedly, he was punished further by being forced to do 100 squat thrusts, 100 push ups, and 100 jumping jacks.
One girl, prior to being sent to the SIU, had difficulty keeping up with the group during exercise in the parade field.   She yelled to a staff person that it was hot and to “shut up talking to me.”   Security was called and she was sprayed in the face.
Mental Disorder
Institutions house a large population of juveniles who suffer from mental disorders, substance abuse, and suicidal thoughts.
A July 2001 study funded by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety Division of Public Safety Planning and the Department of Mental Health Division of Children and Youth Services found that between 66 and 85 percent of the incarcerated juvenile offenders in Mississippi “met DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for a mental disorder.”
The study added that “multiple, co-occurring mental health and substance abuse diagnoses were evident . . . [and] 9% [of the juveniles] had suicidal thoughts and plans.”
Many Institutions do not provide adequate services for this vulnerable population.
Lack of training, resources, program structure and staffing shortages have severely affected counseling programs and as a result youth with mental health concerns receive haphazard and cursory treatment.
Medications
Many youth on psychiatric medications are not allowed to continue to receive those medications when they are admitted.
Often the physicians, not the psychiatrists, determine which youth with mental illness will continue to receive their psychotropic medicine while committed.   For example, a youth before his admission was treated at a psychiatric hospital and discharged with a prescription for risperdal, which treats the symptoms of schizophrenia.   His risperdal was continued in detention and his medicine was sent to the institution when he was transferred.   However, the facility physician discontinued the youth’s risperdal without referring him to the psychiatrist for follow-up treatment.
In another case, a youth was hospitalized for mental health treatment and upon release was prescribed psychotropic medications.   Upon admission to the institution, the physician discontinued these medications and made no referral to the psychiatrist.   After staff reported the youth’s unacceptable behavior, he was referred to the psychiatrist who, apparently either ignoring or being unaware of the youth’s prior history, prescribed a different medication altogether.
The youth was still taking the facility-prescribed medication at the time of our visit, and staff continued to find the youth’s behavior unacceptable.
Physicians should not make decisions about whether a child will continue on most prescribed psychiatric medications.   A psychiatrist should evaluate the youth’s medication needs based on a diagnostic interview, a review of records of prior care, and, if necessary, in consultation with the youth’s psychiatrist in the youth’s home community.
Rarely are the contracted psychiatrists and staff psychologists informed when a child is admitted with or has a history of treatment with psychiatric medicine.   Youth with mental illness often are untreated while in the facilities, even though they are admitted with a history of mental illness.
Managing Suicidal Youth
Institutions fail to employ adequate suicide prevention measures.   Activity, positive relationships between staff and youth, individual attention, school, exercise, reading, and counseling are necessary aspects of an adequate adolescent suicide prevention program.
Suicidal youth are isolated in SIUs in stripped cells, sometimes naked, are not allowed outdoor exercise, and receive very little schooling or counseling.   As previously discussed, some suicidal girls are placed in the “dark room.”   Furthermore, in the isolation units or SIUs children’s mattresses are taken away during the day, leaving them with the option of lying or sitting on concrete or standing.
Boys who are judged to be suicide risks are placed in an empty day room adjacent to the control room where they sit on the floor all day without access to books, school, or outdoor exercise.   They also are not permitted to interact with other boys in the room.
The counselor assigned to counsel suicidal youth attempts to see each youth once per day, but if she is unavailable, no one provides mental health counseling in her absence.
Rehabilitative Treatment
Psychiatrists are contracted for only one day a month at the facilities.   The majority of their time is spent conducting forensic evaluations for the court, rather than providing mental health or rehabilitative treatment to youth.
Staff assigned to the housing units, such as juvenile correctional officers, function as security and play no role in the youths’ rehabilitative treatment.
There is little or no interaction between the various disciplines regarding youths’ strengths and needs or rehabilitative treatment.
The lack of communication between staff hampers their ability to provide a rehabilitative environment.   Indeed, the programs’ current focus on discipline, control, and negative reinforcement fosters an atmosphere where staff demean, belittle, and abuse youth and is not conducive to rehabilitative treatment.
Counselors routinely are unable to see youth individually or in group sessions.   Moreover, therapy continuity is not maintained because counselors are reassigned when youth move from the basic to the advanced program.
Counselors are responsible for implementing youths’ individual treatment plans, but are not involved in the development of the plans.
Counselors, typically, decide which goals they will work on with the youth and as a result youths receive canned group sessions, such as, “obey authority” or “value an education,” which have little rehabilitative value.   A senior mental health employee admitted that youth do not receive individualized rehabilitative treatment.
Conditions do not promote rehabilitation or good mental health, but instead cause depression and mental deterioration.
In the evenings, youth are required to sit in silence for large blocks of time while they sort their clothes, clean their boots, or for girls, braid each other’s hair.   This time could be better spent productively engaged in activity and learning.
The environment as it currently exists invites acting out by youth and the abusive institutional practices that too often follow.
For example, youth are forced to perform physical exercise and threatened with SIU if they are caught talking to each other.   In fact, youth expressed frustration at the wasted time and lack of rehabilitation services being offered in the evenings.   Lack of activity, social interaction, and counseling assistance put youth at risk for depression.
Many of the conditions are harsh and do not promote rehabilitation.
SIU is purportedly used to address the needs of the most vulnerable boys, but instead, functions like an adult prison.
Instead of addressing the boys’ mental health or rehabilitative treatment needs, boys are either locked in isolated cells (where they are sometimes also shackled) or shackled and forced to perform work details around the campus in order to earn their way out of the SIU.
They are not permitted to attend school or receive any educational instruction, and are provided limited access to counseling.
Except for work details, the boys are permitted out of their cells only once a day to exercise in the hallway, but must eat their meals in their cells.
Military Programs
In the use of paramilitary programs at youth training schools it is generally accepted that four segments of the youth population are particularly unsuitable for paramilitary programs:   younger boys, girls, youth with developmental disabilities, and youth who are emotionally or physically fragile.
The disciplinary practices are particularly harmful to the younger boys who are physically, emotionally, or psychologically unable to participate fully in the training program.   Young boys are not developmentally suited to benefit from the military approach.
However many staff perceived that this particular population was noncompliant and anti-authority, when in reality, many of the boys are merely active third, fourth and fifth graders with short attention spans.   The result is that the younger boys stay longer because they are considered behavior problems.
A counselor told us:   You can’t change developmental stages.   They are not ready.   They are playful . . . . The young kids usually stay longer, usually four to six months — there is no tolerance for their silly behavior, so they have to start over.
Many have ADHD [Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder], and they have an especially hard time, partly because the doctor here usually takes them off medication — they are not really defiant, but they can’t be judged the same as the older kids.
I do a lot of counseling with young kids who cry and really miss their families.   They get depressed.
Additionally, the counselor stated that a suggestion had been made by other counselors to place at least the younger boys in a separate unit.   However, they were told there was insufficient staff to run it.   In our experts’ opinions, the military program is ineffective and harmful for younger boys.
A paramilitary program also is unsuitable for some of the troubled girls it serves.   Our expert noted that girls may make some self-esteem gains in physically challenging programs but the girls are deriving no benefits, physical or otherwise, from programs that are currently being administered.
Harsh disciplinary practices are characterized as training.   A log book entry shows that a facility manager punished a girl by requiring her to sleep one hour and walk one hour for two successive nights.   This same girl also had to eat every meal standing for one week thereafter.   These punishments are largely unregulated and in some cases endorsed by supervisory personnel because they are considered military training.
From a juvenile justice and mental health perspective, the military program is inappropriate for girls who have a history of being victimized and abused either physically or sexually.
Learning or developmental disabilities
A paramilitary program also is inappropriate for youth with learning or developmental disabilities.   Youth are only permitted to move to an ‘advanced’ unit once they have met behavioral objectives and passed a written and oral test on military procedures.
Youth with learning or developmental disabilities have difficulty passing the test and serve longer commitments because they cannot move beyond the basic phase of the program.
One counselor stated that, “at least ten percent are developmentally slow, and the staff don’t understand low-functioning kids.   They can’t make it.”
For example, staff made fun of a girl who had both physical and cognitive impairments.   This girl was just learning to read and was unable to earn a grade higher than 70 on the military test the youth must pass in order to move from the basic to the advanced phase of the program.   Her peers were concerned that she would never be able to pass the test.   Youth with learning and developmental disabilities are particularly inappropriate for the paramilitary programs.
Physically or emotionally fragile
Youth who are physically or emotionally fragile are singled out and made to feel worse because of their fragility.
Boys reported staff routinely picked on boys who were small in size, emotionally sensitive, or had difficulty adjusting to the military program.
Some, but not all, of these boys may be placed in cottages for boys who for medical or psychological reasons are considered inappropriate for the physical training component of the military program.   However, boys in the cottage are verbally and physically abused by staff during non-physical components of the military program as often as the emotionally and physically vulnerable boys in other cottages.
A 15-year-old former resident of the cottage who was moved to the SIU told us that he tried to perform well in the non-physical aspects of the program but was sensitive to being teased by staff and had difficulty controlling his reactions, which precipitated his being sent to isolation in SIU.   The cottage residents confirmed his account.
Again, from a juvenile justice and a mental health perspective, the paramilitary training program, even when the physical aspects are eliminated, is not only ineffective, but harmful to such youth.
Religion
Affording youth the benefits of religious activities have led to the “establishment” of religion in violation of the First Amendment by coercing youth to engage in specific religious activities.
We observed youth-led prayer during the graduation ceremony which occurs every Wednesday morning and which youth are required to attend or face discipline.   Furthermore, staff informed us that for two weeks following our visit, the youth would be attending Vacation Bible School.
Youth are required to attend religious services at the church every Sunday.   Some girls reported they would be subject to discipline if they did not sing during services.
The facility administrator stated that youth had the option of not attending the Sunday worship services if they chose not to, but both boys and girls indicated that attending Sunday worship services was a requirement or they would be disciplined.
Youth also must participate in a religious service in their cottages every Tuesday evening or face discipline.   The only reading material the children in the SIUs and some of the housing units are allowed to possess is the Bible.   We witnessed a mandatory group counseling session in the boys’ SIU in which youth were required to read Bible verses and sing religious songs.
Substance abuse programs that incorporate faith, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, are used by correctional facilities and probation departments throughout the country.   Such programs are permissible under the Establishment Clause, though participants objecting to the religious elements must be given a secular alternative if participation is mandatory.
Lack of Due Process
As a general rule, juveniles may be isolated and locked briefly in their rooms as an immediate response to out-of-control behavior that may endanger the youth, other children, or staff.   However, extended isolation for punitive purposes may only be imposed if the youth is afforded notice of the charges and after an informal hearing before a staff member not involved in the incident.   Moreover, the youth should be able to appeal adverse results of the due process hearing.
Actual practices deviate substantially from written policy.
For example, a disciplinary committee hears complaints against youth.   However, if a youth appears before the Committee and testifies to something other than what the staff attests to, the youth is typically given added time or punishment.
Youth sent to the SIUs do not receive the benefit of the committee hearing prior to removal from the cottages and in fact may be confined in isolation for several days before they receive word regarding their punishment or release back to the cottages.
Hearings are not provided to students when they are removed from the open cottages and sent to the SIU.
Youth reported, and the documentation we reviewed showed, that youth are routinely removed to the secure, locked units based on recommendations from the psychologist, the facility administrator, or the director of the Division of Youth Services, without the opportunity for a hearing.
Youth have no ability to access a grievance system designed to address their complaints regarding their treatment at the facilities.   Generally accepted professional standards mandate that youth should have readily available access to a grievance process.   Where courts have considered this, they have uniformly found that detained youth have a constitutional right to file grievances with facility administrators regarding their treatment.
An objective grievance system should be well known to youth and be easily accessible.
Grievances also provide an important quality-control mechanism by which administrators can monitor whether facility staff are adhering to policies and procedures.
REMEDIAL MEASURES
Ensure that any imposition of discipline is appropriate and justified by a legitimate, appropriate penological interest.
Ensure that abusive institutional practices such as hog-tying, pole shackling, “sitting in a chair,” “guard duty,” making youth run with tires around their bodies, use of the “dark room” in the girls’ SIU, and requiring youth to strip naked before being placed in isolation, are ceased immediately.
Ensure that juveniles are adequately protected from staff abuse.
Employ sufficient trained and independent investigators to ensure that all incidents of violence, use of force, or serious injury are adequately investigated and that appropriate personnel actions are taken in response to substantiated findings.
Ensure that OC spray is used only where there is an imminent risk of serious bodily harm and no other less intrusive restraint is available.
Ensure that all uses of OC spray or mechanical or chemical restraints are well-documented and reviewed in a timely manner by senior administrators.
Develop and implement adequate quality assurance mechanisms and review to ensure the efficacy of corrective measures.
Provide adequate mental health and rehabilitative treatment.
Ensure that there are an adequate number of counselors and psychologists and an adequate amount of contracted psychiatric hours to provide adequate mental health and rehabilitative treatment services to all youth who require such services.
Ensure that all youth with mental health needs have current comprehensive individual treatment plans, and that the youth, and facility counselors, are involved in their development.
Develop and implement policies and procedures that comply with generally accepted professional standards for the management of suicidal youth.
Ensure that restraints and isolation other than disciplinary isolation are used only when a youth presents a clear and present danger to him/herself or others.   Provide adequate positive behavior management programs.
Cease placement of youth in isolation cells for prolonged periods.   Ensure that youth placed in isolation cells receive adequate exercise and recreation outdoors.
Cease placement of mentally ill youth in programs and units where they cannot receive adequate mental health care or where they face a likelihood of punishment or other harm in response to their mental illness.   Cease placement of youth with suicidal ideation in the SIUs.
Provide appropriate rehabilitative activities during non-school hours and days.
Cease placement of youths into paramilitary programs when, by reason of mental or physical disability or maturity level, the youth cannot reasonably be expected to obtain any significant benefit or the placement will likely result in physical or psychological harm to the youths.
Revise policies regarding the exercise of religion to clarify the proper role that religious activities can play at the facilities.
The policies shall provide that youth be allowed to engage in voluntary religious activities unless the facilities can show that curtailing such activities would be the least restrictive means of achieving a compelling governmental interest.
At the same time, the policies must not coerce youth to engage in specific religious activities.
Provide adequate training to all staff on the policies and protocols described above.
Monitor facility programs and the decorations on the units to ensure that the policies described above are being followed.
Ensure that youth are afforded a due process hearing before imposing confinement for disciplinary purposes in the SIUs
Develop and implement an adequate grievance system.
Employ sufficient trained staff to ensure safety and to satisfy the individual treatment, training and rehabilitative needs of juveniles confined in these facilities.
Provide juveniles with adequate access to mail, telephones, and visitation.
Provide juveniles with adequate access to mail, telephones, and visitation.

Embattled AG now accused in teen
sex scandal 'cover-up'
Attorney General Gonzales among officials who allegedly ignored abuse of minor boys
March 25, 2007
By Jerome R. Corsi
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, both already under siege for other matters, are now being accused of failing to prosecute officers of the Texas Youth Commission after a Texas Ranger investigation documented that guards and administrators were sexually abusing the institution's teenage boy inmates.
Among the charges in the Texas Ranger report were that administrators would rouse boys from their sleep for the purpose of conducting all-night sex parties.
Retained job despite pornography on state computers
Ray Brookins, one of the officials named in the report, was a Texas prison guard before being hired at the youth commission school.
As a prison guard, Brookins had a history of disciplinary and petty criminal records dating back 21 years.
He retained his job despite charges of using pornography on the job, including viewing nude photos of men and women on state computers.
Systematically abusing youth inmates
The Texas Youth Comission controversy traces back to a criminal investigation conducted in 2005 by Texas Ranger Brian Burzynski.
The investigation revealed key employees at the West Texas State School in Pyote, Texas, were systematically abusing youth inmates in their custody.
Burzynski presented his findings to the attorney general in Texas, to the U.S. Attorney Sutton, and to the Department of Justice civil rights division.
Received no interest in prosecuting — Karl Rove orchestrating role
From all three, Burzynski received no interest in prosecuting the alleged sexual offenses.
"This case demonstrates that a partisan political agenda, with Karl Rove in an orchestrating role, has penetrated the Justice Department and subverted fair-minded administration of the law," Matt Angle, director of the Lone Star Project, told WND.
It's just the latest controversy for Sutton, Gonzales and the Bush administration's direction of the Justice Department.
Earlier, Sutton's decisions to prosecute two Border Patrol agents and Deputy Sheriff Gil Hernandez were criticized as having been influenced by the intervention of the Mexican government.
Gonzales is under heavy congressional pressure in the controversy over the recent forced resignations of eight U.S. attorneys.
At issue is whether the Bush administration is directing the Justice Department to pursue politically motivated prosecutions at the expense of fair or even-handed law enforcement.
Would have to demonstrate boys subjected to sexual abuse
— felt physical pain
In the Texas Youth Commission scandal, Texas Ranger official Burzynski received a July 28, 2005, letter from Bill Baumann, assistant U.S. attorney in Sutton's office, declining prosecution on the argument that under 18 U.S.C. Section 242, the government would have to demonstrate that the boys subjected to sexual abuse sustained "bodily injury."
Baumann wrote that, "As you know, our interviews of the victims revealed that none sustained 'bodily injury.'"
Baumann's letter continued, adding a definition of the phrase "bodily injury," as follows: "Federal courts have interpreted this phrase to include physical pain.
None of the victims have claimed to have felt physical pain during the course of the sexual assaults which they described."
Must demonstrate perpetrator
— knowingly caused victim to engage in sexual act
Baumann's letter further suggested that insufficient evidence existed to prove the offenders in the Texas Youth Commission case had used force in their alleged acts of pedophilia:
"A felony charge under 18 U.S.C. Section 242 can also be predicated on the commission of 'aggravated sexual abuse' or the attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse.
The offense of aggravated sexual abuse is proven with evidence that the perpetrator knowingly caused his victim to engage in a sexual act (which can include contact between the mouth and penis) by using force against the victim or by threatening or placing the victim in fear that the victim (or any other person) will be subjected to death, serious bodily injury or kidnapping.
I do not believe that sufficient evidence exists to support a charge that either Brookins or Hernandez used force to cause victims to engage in a sexual act."
No action because young imprisoned boys
— even enjoyed the acts
Baumann's letter went so far as to suggest that the victims may have willingly participated in, or even enjoyed, the acts of pedophilia involved:
"As you know, consent is frequently an issue in sexual assault cases.
Although none of the victims admit that they consented to the sexual contact, none resisted or voiced any objection to the conduct.
Several of the victims suggested that they were simply 'getting off' on the school administrator."
Rejected charges administrators at the Texas Youth Commission
— lengthened sentences of boys 'reluctant to participate'
Baumann's letter also rejected Burzynski's charges that the administrators at the Texas Youth Commission facility in West Texas had used their position of authority to force the inmates to participate in the sexual acts or that the administrators had lengthened the sentences of the boys to retain willing participants or punish those reluctant to participate.
Essential to show the victim
— was in fact victimized
Baumann wrote:
"In order for the government to be successful in a criminal prosecution, it would be essential for us to show that the victim was in fact victimized.
Most of the victims were aware of the power that the school principal and assistant superintendent held over them, but none were able to describe retaliative acts committed by either the principal or assistant superintendent.
Although it is apparent that many students were retained at West Texas State School long after their initial release date, it would be difficult to prove that either Mr. Brookins or Mr. Hernandez prevented their release."
On Sept. 27, 2005, the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division declined prosecution in a letter written to Lemuel Harrison, the Texas Youth Commission superintendent at the West Texas State School.
In that letter, Justice Department section chief Albert Moskowitz wrote that "evidence does not establish a prosecutable violation of the federal criminal civil rights statutes."
When the word came from Washington
— that's when Baumann wrote letter declining prosecution
Angle maintains the decision not to prosecute was purely political.
"The U.S. attorney's office in Texas actually prepared indictments in this case," Angle told WND.
"But when the word came from Washington, that's when Baumann wrote his letter declining prosecution.
Sutton's office dropped the matter on the desk of the local district attorney, but nobody from Sutton's office said 'if you can’t go on this case, we'll help you out.'"
WND asked Angle to explain how politics drove the decisions not to prosecute.
Describe systematic and widespread abuse of juveniles
— yet they determine that the evidence is not sufficient to warrant federal prosecution
"If you read the letters from Sutton's office or from DOJ, it's really amazing what abuse they describe and then downplay as not being serious," Angle explained.
"They describe systematic and widespread abuse of juveniles who were held in these facilities by the people who were administering these facilities, and they acknowledge this fully, yet they determine that the evidence is not sufficient to warrant federal prosecution."
Angle explained to WND that he found both letters shocking.
"The letters justify not pursuing these cases because, number one, there is no evidence that any of these juveniles felt physical pain while they were being assaulted, and the letters use the word 'assaulted,'" he said.
"And then also, they rejected prosecution because none of these juveniles stated in the investigations that they resisted and objected, which of course the facts of the report show to be the case.
This case developed right in the middle of Governor Perry's 2006 re-election campaign.
While Texas is a Republican state, and the Republicans expected to win, still at that time, Governor Perry was facing an election challenge from Carole Strayhorn, a third party candidate who was also a former Republican comptroller in Texas."
He continued:
"I would speculate that the political powers in Texas and Washington in the Republican Party were not interested in this sex scandal coming to light. Sutton and Gonzales let their political responsibilities outstrip their legal responsibilities, and as a result you had children who were in danger of sexual abuse and were left in that danger."
Angle says that while the U.S. Justice Department and Texas attorney general's office were not prosecuting in this case, they were actively pursuing minor voter fraud issues with only a handful of allegations to go on.
On March 2, 2007, Governor Rick Perry appointed Jay Kimbrough, his former staff chief and homeland security director, to serve as "special master" to lead an investigation into the Texas Youth Commission sex abuse scandal.
Shortly thereafter, the commission stopped a hiring practice that had allowed convicted felons to work as administrators in the system.
The practice had involved a requirement that prior criminal records be destroyed for employees hired by the commission.
On March 17, 2007, the entire Texas Youth Commission governing board resigned.
The Texas Youth Commission is the state's juvenile corrections agency, charged "with the care, custody, rehabilitation, and reestablishment in society of Texas' most chronically delinquent or serious juvenile offenders."
Between the age of 10 and 17 when committed
— molesters can continue until 21st birthdays
Inmates are felony-level offenders between the age of 10 and 17 when they are committed.
The commission can maintain jurisdiction over offenders until their 21st birthdays.
The Lone Star Project is organized as a political research and policy analysis project of the Lone Star Fund, a federal political action committee organized in Texas.

Part of the great puzzle
Kewe
The Omaha corporations that bankrolled Larry King and Franklin are also the major sponsors of youth organizations in Nebraska, such as Boys Club, Girls Club, Boy Scouts, Boys Town, Uta Halee Home for Girls, and others.
These corporations donate millions of dollars per year to these organizations, as the annual reports of the recipients show.
Many executives of these firms sit on the boards of the youth care facilities.
The donation of so much money and time would seem to indicate a great concern for Nebraska's youth.
Key members of the Omaha business community, however, did nothing to help and plenty to wreck the Franklin committee's investigation into the sexual abuse, ritual torture, and murder of children.
Is it possible that some of these corporate leaders sit on the youth boards, for the same reason that Larry King founded the North Omaha Girls Club?
Why, for instance, did the notorious pedophile Alan Baer join the board of the Boys Club?
And after the extraordinary publicity over his pedophilia in 1989 and 1990, and his indictment for pandering, how is it conceivable that in 1991 Baer was still on the board of Boys Club?
Assume most corporate board members are not involved in child abuse.
But judging by the behavior of the Omaha business community during the Franklin investigation, the ones who are guilty of such behavior enjoy toleration, or even protection, by the others.

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL is the story of a nationwide pedophile ring that pandered children to a cabal of the rich and powerful. 

The ring’s pimps were a pair of Republican powerbrokers who used Boys Town as a pedophiliac reservoir, had access to the highest levels of our government, and connections to the CIA.

 Nebraska legislators nearly exposed the ring in 1990, but its unveiling had the potential to produce seismic political aftershocks: a rash of deaths and a full court press by federal and local law enforcement effected an immaculate cover-up.

The FRANKLIN SCANDAL — Story of a US nationwide pedophile ring
Almost seven years ago, when assigned to do something “dark” for a major New York magazine, journalist Nick Bryant stumbled across the Franklin Scandal, wrote an article and, well … nobody would print it, and we mean nobody.
All had a chance, but no one would: Harpers, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Mother Jones, Rolling Stone, and others.
Nick, a successful and respected free-lance writer, represented by William Morris Agency, could not find any publishing house that would support this probe.

A day or so later, Al and I ended up in Kemp's office, with Kemp insisting that I send the project based certificates to New York HDC.
I explained to him how dangerous this was for him.   He said he did not care, to do it.
The only way I can describe his demeanor was that of terror, something I had never seen Jack in the throws of before.
It was almost like his fear had replaced all ambition, judgement, discernment.   It was scary.
... It was not until I did the chronology and looked at the timing of the Washington Times stories on the homosexual prostitution rings that I started to realize the possible connection.
The Franklin Cover Up by John De Camp gives a sense that this Washington Times story may have been the tip of the iceberg.
That prostitution and pedophila networks were being used for covert ops to win favor from and/or blackmail DC politicians.
Looking at the chronology and some of Kemps more irratic behavior, it is a distinct possibility that Kemp was nervous about exposure of his own activities.
... He [One of my deputies] pulled me aside and said that folks who worked on Kemp's campaign staff who he absolutely trusted had confided in him that Kemp's sexual activities were far worse than merely bi-sexual and to be very careful.
Looking back on it now, I realize he was probably trying to give me a heads up on the pedophilia problem.
At the time, I was simply too dense to believe this and Iran Contra and CIA drug dealing were really going on.
It was just too far a leap for me.
Oh, well.
 
For the longest time, I never could come up with a rational explanation for how Andrew Cuomo could induce such terror in Jack Kemp in 1989.
Now, I have a plausible one, although that does not make it true.
If Cuomo and his dad were an intimate part of the shadow government financial fraud network we are discussing, he and the network would have easy access to the necessary pictures, vidoes and various blackmail material needed to ensure they got what they wanted out of HUD.
No doubt if the Clintons were helping to run Mena for Bush's Enterprise during Iran-Contra, surely the Cuomo's in New York would have had some major action.
Various Mena allegations allege that the Gotti family were helping to distribute in NY.
... Anyway, that is my personal experience...
... and why Kemp was on board for so much corruption and fraud in Bush I — and so effective at covering up Iran Contra fraud.
... Since that time, I have read and been told that extensive "control file" systems are in existence.
Corporate and government leaders do not go above a certain level of responsibility unless they have a "control file."
It is a bit like J.Edgar Hoover's dirty pictures.
I am told that if the powers that be can not get a control file on a person, that ultimately they are targeted and discredited like me or "suicided" like the many people who ended up on the website "death lists."
This was said to include Bill Colby who was instrumental in helping John DeCamp write and publish The Franklin Cover Up and win his lawsuit for one of the mind controlled children involved in the pedophilia ring.
The supremacy of the central banking-warfare investment model that has ruled our planet for the last 500 years depends on being able to combine the high margin profits of organized crime with the low cost of capital and liquidity that comes with governmental authority and popular faith in the rule of law.

Our economy depends on insiders having their cake and eating it too and subsidizing a free lunch by stealing from someone else.
This works well when the general population shares in some of the subsidy, grows complacent and does not see the “real deal” on how the system works.
However, liquidity and governmental authority will erode if the general population becomes aware of how things really work.
As this happens, they begin to understand the power of innovative technology and re-engineering of government resources to create greater abundance both for themselves and other people.
As this happens, they lose faith in the myth that the current system is fundamentally legitimate.
This jeopardizes the financial markets that depend on fraudulent collateral and practices to continue to work.
It also jeopardizes the wealth and power of the people who are winning with financial fraud.
... As a consequence, extraordinary attention and sums of money are invested in affirming the myth and appearance of legitimacy.
This includes creating popular explanations of why the rich and powerful are lawful and ethical and the venal poor, hostile foreigners, crafty mobsters and incompetent and irresponsible middle class bureaucrats are to blame for the success of narcotics trafficking, financial fraud and other forms of organized crime.

Our efforts at The Hamilton Securities Group to help HUD achieve maximum return on the sale of its defaulted mortgage assets coincided with a widespread process of “privatization” in which assets were, in fact, being transferred out of governments worldwide at significantly below market value in a manner providing extraordinary windfall profits, capital gains and financial equity to private corporations and investors.

In addition, government functions were being outsourced at prices way above what should have been market price or government costs — again stripping governmental and community resources in a manner that subsidized private interests.
The financial equity gained by private interests was often the result of financial, human, environmental and living equity stripped and stolen from communities — often without communities being able to understand what had happened or to clearly identify their loss.
This is why I now refer to privatization as “piratization.”

Over time I was increasingly shocked by the speed and ease with which many intelligent and seemingly competent members of the CFR [ Council on Foreign Relations ] appeared to eagerly justify policies and actions that supported growing corruption.
The regularity with which many CFR members would protect insiders from accountability regarding another appalling fraud surprised even me.
Many of them seemed delighted with the advantages of being an insider while being entirely indifferent to the extraordinary cost to all citizens of having our lives, health and resources drained to increase insider wealth in a manner that violated the most basic principles of fiduciary obligation and respect for the law.
In short, the CFR was operating in a win-lose economic paradigm that centralized economic and political power.
I was trying to find a way for us to shift to a win-win economic paradigm that was — by its nature — decentralizing.

The reader can appreciate why Wall Street would welcome someone as accommodating as Gorelick at Fannie Mae.
This was a period when the profits rolled in from engineering the most spectacular growth in mortgage debt in U.S. history.
As one real estate broker said, “They have turned our homes into ATM machines.”
Fannie Mae has been a leading player in centralizing control of the mortgage markets into Washington D.C. and Wall Street.
And that means as people were rounded up and shipped to prison as part of Operation Safe Home, Fannie was right behind to finance the gentrification of neighborhoods.
And that is before we ask questions about the extent to which the estimated annual financial flows of $500 billion–$1 trillion money laundering through the U.S. financial system or money missing from the US government are reinvested into Fannie Mae securities.

James Forrestal
James Forrestal’s oil portrait always hung prominently in one of the private Dillon Read dining rooms for the eleven years that I worked at the firm. Forrestal, a highly regarded Dillon partner and President of the firm, had gone to Washington, D.C. in 1940 to lead the Navy during WWII and then played a critical role in creating the National Security Act of 1947.

He then became Secretary of War (later termed Secretary of Defense) in September 1947 and served until March 28, 1949.

Given the central banking-warfare investment model that rules our planet, it was appropriate that Dillon 
partners at various times lead both the Treasury Department and the Defense Department.

Shortly after resigning from government, Forrestal died falling out of a window of the Bethesda Naval Hospital outside of Washington, D.C. on May 22, 1949.

There is some controversy around the official explanation of his death — ruled a suicide.

Some insist he had a nervous breakdown. Some say that he was opposed to the creation of the state of Israel.

Others say that he argued for transparency and accountability in government, and against the provisions instituted at this time to create a secrete “black budget.”

He lost and was pretty upset about it — and the loss was a violent one.

Since the professional killers who operate inside the Washington beltway have numerous techniques to get perfectly sane people to kill themselves, I am not sure it makes a big difference.

Approximately a month later, the CIA Act of 1949 was passed.

The Act created the CIA and endowed it with the statutory authority that became one of the chief components of financing the “black” budget — the power to claw monies from other agencies for the benefit of secretly funding the intelligence communities and their corporate contractors.

This was to turn out to be a devastating development for the forces of transparency, without which there can be no rule of law, free markets or democracy.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt appointed Forrestal as an administrative assistant on June 22, 1940, then nominated him as Undersecretary of the Navy six weeks later. In the latter post, Forrestal would prove to be very effective at mobilizing industrial production for the war effort.
He became Secretary of the Navy on May 19, 1944, following the death of his immediate supervisor Frank Knox from a heart attack. Forrestal then led the Navy through the closing year of the war and the demobilization that followed.   What might have been his greatest legacy as Navy Secretary was an attempt that came to nought.   He, along with Secretary of War Henry Stimson and Under Secretary of State Joseph Grew, in the early months of 1945, strongly advocated a softer policy toward Japan that would permit a negotiated face-saving surrender.   His primary concern was "the menace of Russian Communism and its attraction for decimated, destabilized societies in Europe and Asia", and, therefore, keeping the Soviet Union out of the war with Japan.   Had his advice been followed, Japan might well have surrendered before August 1945, precluding the use of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.   So strongly did he feel about this matter that he cultivated negotiation attempts that bordered closely on insubordination toward the President.
Forrestal opposed the unification of the services, but even so helped develop the National Security Act of 1947 that created the National Military Establishment (the Department of Defense was not created as such until August 1949), and with the former Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson retiring to private life, Forrestal was the next choice.
His 18 months at Defense came at an exceptionally difficult time for the U.S. military establishment:   Communist governments came to power in Czechoslovakia and China; West Berlin was blockaded, necessitating the Berlin Airlift to keep it going; the war between the Arab states and Israel after the establishment of Israel in Palestine; and negotiations were going on for the formation of NATO.   His reign was also hampered by intense interservice rivalries.
In addition, President Harry Truman constrained military budgets billions of dollars below what the services were requesting, putting Forrestal in the middle of the tug-of-war.   Forrestal was also becoming more and more worried about the Soviet threat.   Internationally, the takeover by the Communists of Eastern Europe, their threats to the governments of Greece, Italy, and France, their impending takeover of China, and the invasion of South Korea by North Korea would demonstrate the legitimacy of his concerns on the international front as well.

What Briody does not mention is allegations regarding Brown & Root's involvement in narcotics trafficking. Former LAPD narcotics investigator Mike Ruppert once described his break up with fiance Teddy — an agent dealing narcotics and weapons for the CIA while working with Brown & Root, as follows:
“Arriving in New Orleans in early July, 1977 I found her living in an apartment across the river in Gretna. Equipped with scrambler phones, night vision devices and working from sealed communiqués delivered by naval and air force personnel from nearby Belle Chasse Naval Air Station, Teddy was involved in something truly ugly.
She was arranging for large quantities of weapons to be loaded onto ships leaving for Iran.
At the same time she was working with Mafia associates of New Orleans Mafia boss Carlos Marcello to coordinate the movement of service boats that were bringing large quantities of heroin into the city.
The boats arrived at Marcello controlled docks, unmolested by even the New Orleans police she introduced me to, along with divers, military men, former Green Berets and CIA personnel.
“The service boats were retrieving the heroin from oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, oil rigs in international waters, oil rigs built and serviced by Brown and Root.
The guns that Teddy monitored, apparently Vietnam era surplus AK 47s and M16s, were being loaded onto ships also owned or leased by Brown and Root.
And more than once during the eight days I spent in New Orleans I met and ate at restaurants with Brown and Root employees who were boarding those ships and leaving for Iran within days.
Once, while leaving a bar and apparently having asked the wrong question, I was shot at in an attempt to scare me off.”

The Clinton Administration took the groundwork laid by Nixon, Reagan and Bush and embraced and blossomed the expansion and promotion of federal support for police, enforcement and the War on Drugs with a passion that was hard to understand unless and until you realized that the American financial system was deeply dependent on attracting an estimated $500 billion-$1 trillion of annual money laundering.
Globalizing corporations and deepening deficits and housing bubbles required attracting vast amounts of capital.
Attracting capital also required making the world safe for the reinvestment of the profits of organized crime and the war machine.
Without growing organized crime and military activities through government budgets and contracts, the economy would stop centralizing.
The Clinton Administration was to govern a doubling of the federal prison population.

I Am Alden Pyle
President Bush's Vietnam Fantasy
Actually, the president had advanced this line of reasoning last November during the APEC summit in Vietnam.
My
comment at the time is still, I think, on the mark:
President Bush recently attracted considerable attention and criticism by stating before the Veterans of Foreign Wars that the takeaway from Vietnam was that we cut and ran too soon, and we should not duplicate that mistake in Iraq.
Asked if the experience in Vietnam offered lessons for Iraq, Bush said Friday, "We tend to want there to be instant success in the world, and the task in Iraq is going to take awhile."
He said "it's just going to take a long period of time" for "an ideology of freedom to overcome an ideology of hate.    Yet, the world that we live in today is one where they want things to happen immediately."
We'll succeed unless we quit," the president said.
It seems to me that the lesson of the Vietnam War is we screwed up, we got beat, tens of thousands of Americans and millions of Vietnamese died but, hey, the sun still rises in the East, things got better, and thirty years later our President is shaking hands with the political heir of the guys who kicked our ass.
In other words, the emergence of a prosperous, peaceful Vietnam is a pretty strong argument for acknowledging the mistake we made in Iraq and, bluntly, succeeding by quitting.
The new element in President Bush’s Vietnam reverie, one that attracted considerable headscratching and eyerolling from the cognoscenti, was his invocation of Alden Pyle, the blindly confident and profoundly destructive do-gooder in Graham Greene’s The Quiet American:
“In 1955, long before the United States had entered the war, Graham Greene wrote a novel called ‘The Quiet American.’     It was set in Saigon and the main character was a young government agent named Alden Pyle.
He was a symbol of American purpose and patriotism and dangerous naivete.
Another character describes Alden this way: ‘I never knew a man who had better motives for all the trouble he caused.’
“After America entered the Vietnam War, Graham Greene — the Graham Greene argument gathered some steam.
Matter of fact, many argued that if we pulled out, there would be no consequences for the Vietnamese people.
In 1972, one anti-war senator put it this way: ‘What earthly difference does it make to nomadic tribes or uneducated subsistence farmers in Vietnam or Cambodia or Laos whether they have a military dictator, a royal prince or a socialist commissar in some distant capital that they've never seen and may never heard of?'"
Occuption and US paid quisling soldiers
Hmmm.
Contrary to the president’s assertion, the central lesson of Greene’s book is not that Pyle’s (read Bush’s) courage, energy, and idealism were betrayed by the lazy, ignoble disdain of lesser men (read Democrats) for a multi-decade crusade on behalf of Vietnamese (read Iraqi) freedom.
Greene’s powerfully-argued theme is that Pyle sacrificed the moral high ground, doomed his venture at its inception, and sowed the seeds of his own destruction by orchestrating a terrorist bombing in a profoundly misguided and indecent attempt to advance a foolish, unrealistic, and catastrophic political agenda.
Greene got it right in Vietnam and, I would say, in Iraq.
President Bush gets it wrong.
The thought that President Bush is perhaps relying on this fictional portrayal of a deluded naif to stoke personal fantasies of omniscience, moral clarity, and perhaps even (political) martyrdom in the face of widespread repudiation of his policies is, to say the least, disturbing.
Who was Alden Pyle supposed to be?
Jean de Lattre de Tassigny, the brilliant, driven general who was High Commissioner to Indo-China and the last, best hope of France’s desperate counterinsurgency effort against Ho Chi Minh, had this to say about Robert Blum, head of the US Economic Aid Mission to Indochina (Blum is sometimes cited as Greene’s model for Pyle):
You are the most dangerous man in Indochina.
And was the United States — represented in Greene’s fiction by Alden Pyle — dangerous enough to connive with a Vietnamese warlord in a terrorist attack in Saigon in 1951?
That was the explosive allegation at the heart of The Quiet American.
The Quiet American culminates with a bloody bombing in a square off the rue Catinat in central Saigon, precipitated by the naïve, bookish Pyle’s disastrous attempt to end-around the French and package a thuggish warlord, General The, as the leader of a nationalistic and democratic “Third Force”.
In real life, as in the book, the blast was set off by a “General” The, a renegade officer who had left the private army of the Caodai sect to set up business for himself near Saigon.    He had apparently attracted the interest of American, keen for a nationalist third force that would supplant both Communism and the French-backed Bao Dai regime.
To make a splashy arrival on the political scene, The executed two bloody bombings in Saigon.    Not only that, he took credit for them in a radio broadcast, despite initial attempts by the US to blame the Vietminh for the atrocities.
The later on became a fixture in the US-backed Diem government.
The Quiet American infuriated Americans when it came out.    New Yorker writer A.J. Leibling, fresh from liberating the wine cellars of Paris and flush with the self-regard born of the good war, excoriated Greene in a famous review.
Not surprisingly, the current Vietnamese government loves the book for its depiction of a US intervention morally and strategically doomed from its inception.
The Quiet American is apparently available all over Vietnam and the government gave full support to the filming of Philip Noyce’s excellent adaptation, which was finally released in 2002 after much 9/11-related anguish.
But the interesting and unanswered question is, what exactly did The get from the United States in 1950 and 1951?
Most American histories of the Vietnam mess give relatively short shrift to the period before 1954.    That was the year of Dienbienphu, Geneva, Diem, and all that, and Vietnam officially became America’s exclusive tar baby.
That’s why Graham Greene’s The Quiet American and volume two of Norman Sherry’s authorized biography of Greene The Life of Graham Greene (Penguin, 2004) are such fascinating and important additions to the history of the period.
Greene worked as a correspondent in Vietnam in the early 50s, and many of the characters and incidents are direct distillations of his experiences.    He wrote “Perhaps there is more direct rapportage in The Quiet American than in any other novel I have written”.    Sherry's diligence in retracing Greene's steps and providing context for his work and life have become legendary.
It appears highly likely that in 1950-51 the US aid mission, actually a hive of CIA spooks, was chafing at the limited role and information the French were willing to grant them in the effort against the Vietminh.
The survival of the French presence in Vietnam and its Bao Dai regime was clearly a matter of no more than a year or two.    The US had no qualms about pursuing Third Force options independently and displayed little sympathy for French objections or the destabilizing and demoralizing effects that their actions had on the desperate French effort to stabilize Vietnam.
Greene, himself a MI6 officer in the Second World War and sympathetic to the French view, undoubtedly learned of America’s playing footsie with people like The from indignant sources in the French Surete.
Did The, as Greene alleges in his book, get explosives, know-how, and direction from the CIA?    And did the US have prior knowledge of the attacks and, instead of stopping them, encouraged them and planned around them and exploited them for propaganda purposes?
Norman Sherry is extremely cautious and circumspect in weighing the evidence for the more sensational allegations.
Greene was clearly hearing Gallic tittle-tattle as suspicious French intelligence, military, and diplomatic personnel monitored the growing and increasingly assertive U.S. presence in Saigon.
The most damning was information from the French No. 1 in Vietnam, General Salan, that he had arrested an American consular officer on the Dakow Bridge (where Alden Pyle meets his end in the book) with plastic explosives in the trunk of his car.
However, Mr. Sherry did not uncover any whistleblowers within the ranks of Americans stationed in Saigon in ‘50/’51 who supported Greene’s story that the Catinat bombing was carried out by The with guilty American foreknowledge, assistance, and approval — or even that the US had any serious contacts with The prior to 1954.
Case not proven to legal standards is the conclusion I extracted from Chapter 29, which discusses the era and the events of the bombings in great detail.
However, on artistic grounds the situation in Vietnam provided a suitable basis for Greene to depict the deaths in rue Catinat as the direct consequence of callous and overconfident American adventurism.
Examining the historical context of The Quiet American provides an illuminating picture of the creeping American intervention and sidelining of the French, which came into the open only in 1955, when the US sided with Ngo Van Diem — and General The — and closed the books on the French experience in Vietnam.
The French struggle to regain control of Vietnam after World War II was a political, human, and financial catastrophe for the French homeland.
No question that the French needed American help, which Truman and Eisenhower provided.    By the time the French packed it in after Dien Bien Phu, America had underwritten 80% the cost of the failed French effort.
Nevertheless, the United States was an unenthusiastic and suspicious partner.    Truman’s anti-communism had replaced Roosevelt’s support for self-determination in the liberated countries of Southeast Asia as America’s guiding ideology, but the US was never able to look upon French aims, methods, or capabilities in Vietnam with any enthusiasm.
The corrosive distrust and dislike between the French and the Americans is fully documented in Greene’s book.
The takeaway from Greene’s book is not that he was wrong about the nature of US engagement in the brief period when Vietnam was slipping from French control.    It was that he was profoundly right about the twenty-year nightmare that the US and Vietnam were embarking on together.
Greene’s life and art were nourished by a stew of self-loathing and self-knowledge.    France’s doomed, disgusted struggle for Vietnam resonated with Greene’s sense of sin and cynical despondency.
On the other hand, he took the blithe, assertive ignorance of the Americans — symbolized by Alden Pyle — as a personal affront.
In 1951, to indicate the disastrous consequences of virtue blindly asserted without awareness of personal sin and weakness, Greene makes the naïve Pyle knowingly complicit in a horrific crime: the terror bombing of a square filled with innocent civilians in the center of Saigon.
Later on, American errors in Vietnam would be characterized more by sins of omission by the intentionally blind and willfully ignorant, and all-too-knowing sins of commission by people who harbored no illusions about the decency of their own methods.
People like Edward Lansdale.
Thankfully, Sherry’s book lays to rest the canard, repeated in Stanley Karnow’s Vietnam and countless other works — and promoted by Landsdale himself — that Edward Lansdale was the model for Alden Pyle.
Lansdale was the antithesis of Pyle: an egomaniacal blowhard, grandstander, and loose cannon whose eccentricity bordered on the pathological.
He famously put one over on Graham Greene, conspiring with director Joseph Manckiewicz to shoot the first version of The Quiet American, in 1959, in direct contradiction to the book and Greene’s intentions.
When the movie appeared, Alden Pyle — played by Audie Murphy — was the hero; and Greene’s alter-ego — the jaded English journalist Fowler — is the dangerous naïf who precipitates the carnage in the square.
In explaining why his version would prevail, Lansdale wrote to Manckiewicz:
" [no] more than one or two Vietnamese now alive know the real truth of the matter, and they certainly aren't going to tell it to anyone."
Landsdale did not officially enter the Vietnam arena until 1954, when he appeared as Diem’s minder.    Greene wrote his book in 1952.
But that doesn’t mean that Lansdale’s shadow isn’t over the events in rue Catinat.
Before Lansdale gained notoriety as John Kennedy’s go-to guy for spectacular failures, first in Vietnam and then Operation Mongoose — the increasingly harebrained strategies for destabilizing Cuba and assassinating Castro that attracted the attention of the Church Committee — he presided over one of the greatest successes in post-world war II US foreign policy — the crushing of the Philippine insurrection.
He did it in alliance with an energetic, talented, and compliant military office, Ramon Magsaysay.
Tactics included enlarging and upgrading the army, limiting abuses against the population by state military forces, aggressive irregular counterinsurgency operations, lots of psyops, and some land reform.    Also highly trained hunter-killer squads and unreliable paramilitaries.
Amazingly,
everything worked, at least against the isolated Huk movement, which at its height claimed 15,000 troops and only drew on the population of Luzon — 1.5 million — for support.
The Philippines is still the acme of American counterinsurgency, and one thinks it would be cited in the same breath with British suppression of the Malay Uprising, which seems to get all the positive ink as the only truly successful counterinsurgency operation in the modern period.
According to Lansdale, in 1954 he was ordered to Vietnam "to do there what you did in the Philippines."
An academic at the University of the Philippines, Roland Simbulan, stated:
So successful was the CIA in pulling the strings thru Lansdale that in 1954, a high-level US committee reported that, "American policy in Southeast Asia was most effectively represented in the Philippines, where any expanded program of Western influence may best be launched."
...
The CIA's success in crushing the peasant-based Huk rebellion in the 1950s made this operation the model for future counterinsurgency operations in Vietnam and Latin America.
Colonel Lansdale and his Filipino sidekick, Col. Napoleon Valeriano were later to use their counterguerrilla experience in the Philippines for training covert operatives in Vietnam and in the US-administered School of the Americas, which trained counterguerrilla assassins for Latin America.
Thus, the Philippines had become the CIA's prototype in successful covert operations and psychological warfare.
After his stint in the Philippines using propaganda, psywar and deception against the Huk movement, Lansdale was then assigned in Vietnam to wage military, political and psychological warfare.
When the Americans looked at Vietnam, they believed the French had a formula for failure, and America had the recipe for success.
During World War II, Roosevelt had already touted America’s policy supporting Philippine independence as a template for Vietnam.
The Pentagon Papers
record that President Roosevelt offered the De Gaulle Filipino advisors to help them out in Vietnam.
De Gaulle’s response to the astounding suggestion that the banner of European civilization and French honor could best be shouldered with the help of brown folks from the Philippines was “pensive silence”.
The Americans — like Alden Pyle — were too impatient of success and confident in their methods to work with the French.
Once the French were left, the American magic would work in Vietnam as it had in the Philippines.    All it required was U.S. prestige and aid, an innovative and ruthless cadre of advisors, and a seamless coordination between the American patron and the Vietnamese client, all constellated around a charismatic, competent leader.
But the differences turned out to be more important than the similarities.
Instead of Magsaysay, a dynamic man on horseback, we put our money on Diem, a (literally) cloistered Catholic and out of touch egoist.
Instead of the hapless, isolated Huks, we got iron-hard NVA soldiers with an impregnable base in North Vietnam, safe-haven borders, and Russian and Chinese assistance.
We got a counterinsurgency operation fatally compromised from its outset by excessive American reliance on political and military violence.
And of course, we got defeat instead of victory.
That’s the tragedy Graham Greene foresaw in the rue Catinat.
I think I’ll let Philip Noyce, director of the 2002 film adaptation of The Quiet American, have the last word.    From a
Salon interview in early 2003, as America teetered on the brink of the Iraq invasion:
Alden Pyle is alive and well today.    And that's either a mark of Greene's brilliance, or the fact that some things just never change... In theory, you've got a White House full of Alden Pyles.
[Laughter] And that's scary...
...Well, George Bush is the ultimate Alden Pyle!    He's hardly been out of the country, he's steeped in good intentions, believes he has the answer, is very naive, ultimately not that bright, and extremely dangerous.

Quebec police defend rock-wielding undercover officer
Max Harrold, CanWest News Service
Published: Friday, August 24, 2007
MONTREAL — Quebec's police force found itself caught between a rock and some hard questions Friday, as it defended an undercover officer's prop at the Montebello summit earlier this week.
"Of course we wish it hadn't happened," Securite du Quebec Insp. Marcel Savard said, as he explained why one of three undercover SQ officers was caught on video holding a rock while infiltrating a group of protesters.
The protesters were gathered to voice their opposition to the meeting of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, U.S. President George Bush and Mexican President Felipe Calderon Aug. 20 and Aug. 21 as they met in Montebello, Que.
At no time did the officer with the rock threaten anyone with it or use it to incite violence by the actual protesters, Savard said.
"He only had the rock because he was trying to blend in with (a crowd of) extremists he had been with earlier."
Savard said a video of the incident that was posted on
the YouTube website was taken out of context.
But the video,
one version of which lasts for nine minutes, does not show any 'extremists' or any else dressed like the undercover officers, who wore dark clothing and bandanas to cover their faces.
"When they were with the extremists, (the undercover officers) were given a rock and were formally asked to throw it," Savard said, acknowledging that it became apparent that the undercover officers were not protesters.
The SQ did not arrest the three officers, but handcuffed them and removed them to question them.
"The (SQ) officers on the front line did not know (at first)_that they were undercover officers," Savard said.
The SQ is reviewing its procedures for policing protests and may alter some of its methods in future, he said.
In Quebec City, provincial opposition leader Mario Dumont said he wanted the Quebec government to explain the actions of the SQ.
"I await an explanation from the minister of public security," Action democratique du Quebec opposition leader Mario Dumont said.
"For the moment, this (measure) has been presented as a necessity. I'm not a specialist in the various operations that can be run by a police officer. At first glance, this one looks pretty special.
"I asked the minister of public security to provide explanations as soon as possible."
Genevieve Guilbault, a spokeswoman for Quebec Public Security Minister Jacques Dupuis, said Dupuis does not comment on police operations.
