Ron Paul: After ‘CIA coup,’ agency ‘runs military’
By Raw Story
Wednesday, January 20th, 2010
US House Rep. Ron Paul says the CIA has in effect carried out a "coup" against the US government, and the intelligence agency needs to be "taken out."
Speaking to an audience of like-minded libertarians at a Campaign for Liberty regional conference in Atlanta this past weekend, the Texas Republican said:
There's been a coup, have you heard?
It's the CIA coup.
The CIA runs everything, they run the military.
They're the ones who are over there lobbing missiles and bombs on countries. ...
And of course the CIA is every bit as secretive as the Federal Reserve. ...
And yet think of the harm they have done since they were established [after] World War II.
They are a government unto themselves.
They're in businesses, in drug businesses, they take out dictators ...
We need to take out the CIA.
Paul's comments, made last weekend, were met with a loud round of applause, but they didn't gather attention until bloggers noticed a clip of the event at YouTube.
Paul appeared to be referring to news reports that the CIA is deeply involved in air strikes against Al Qaeda targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
A
suicide bombing late last year against Forward Operating Base Chapman in Afghanistan took the lives of seven of CIA operatives, including two contracted from Blackwater.
The event highlighted the CIA's deep involvement in the war effort.
Paul's reference to the CIA being "in the drug business" refers to long-running allegations that the CIA has funded some of its covert operations with proceeds from drug-running.
That claim was most famously made in
a 1996 investigative report from the San Jose Mercury-News, which alleged that cocaine from the Contra-Sandinista civil war in Nicaragua was making its way to the streets of L.A. via the CIA.

CIA et al
Perhaps Ron you should also have mentioned the CIA's superior agency, the NSA — the National 'Security' Agency
And all the
cocain-funded, opium-funded, US tax-payer-funded black budget operations.
Taxpayer funded once payment to the private 'US Federal Reserve' is made and new borrowing taken to take care of the trillions of dollars needed for black budget and military agency use.
A system of intrigue and corruption that this very year is on track to bring great turmoil — ORDO AB CHAO — to billions of people in the crumbling of the US and major world economic system!
All part of the grand scheme to bring about 'World Government' — via banks and politicians — 'rescue' but really ever greater consolidation for the elite grouping who now run the planet!

America calls its soldiers who fought in World War II "the greatest generation."
They are hymned by Hollywood, celebrated by publishers and politicians, hailed at every turn.
Heroes from lost golden age
And for their troubled descendants, whose military misadventures stretch from My Lai to Abu Ghraib, the clean-limbed victors of the "last good war" do indeed shine out like heroes from a lost golden age.
Yet despite the vast tonnage of celluloid and printer's ink devoted to their praise, what is perhaps the truest, highest measure of their worth has been almost universally neglected.
And what is this hidden glory, which does more honor to the people of the United States than every single military action ordered by their corruption-riddled leaders during the past 50 years?
It's the fact that in the midst of history's most vicious, all-devouring, inhuman war, only about 15 percent of U.S. soldiers on the battlefield actually tried to kill anyone.
Never fired their weapons
In-depth studies by the U.S. Army after the war showed that between 80 percent and 85 percent of the greatest generation never fired their weapons at an exposed enemy in combat, military psychologist Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman reports in Christianity Today.
Many times they had the chance, but could not bring themselves to do it.
They either withheld their fire altogether or else shot into the air, to the side, anywhere but at the fellow human beings — their blood kin in biology, mind and mortality — facing them across the line.
This reluctance is even more remarkable given the incessant demonization of the enemy by the top brass, especially in the Pacific, where the Japanese — soldiers and civilians — were routinely portrayed by military propaganda as simian, subhuman creatures fit only for extermination.
Yet even with official license given to the most virulent prejudice, even with the sanction of a just cause (self-defense against aggression), even with the incitements of mortal fear, of grief and anger over slain comrades, even with all the moral chaos endemic to warfare, U.S. soldiers killed only with the greatest reluctance, in the direst extremity.
These were not stripped-down brains with cauterized souls
These were not "warriors," bloodthirsty automatons with stripped-down brains and cauterized souls, slavering in Pavlovian fury at the bell-clap of command.  No, they were real men, willing, as Grossman notes, to stand up for a cause, even die for it, but not willing, in the end, to transgress the natural law (implanted by God or evolution, take your pick) that says: Do not kill your own kind — and every person of every race and nation is your own kind.
You would think that this apotheosis of human transcendence, achieved, in the best democratic fashion, by ordinary conscripts — farmboys and dock workers, factory hands, bank clerks, guitar players, teachers, cab drivers, hobos, card sharks, college men — would have been inscribed on plates of gold and fixed to the walls of the Capitol for all time, a blazon of national greatness.
Just think of it: Soldiers who hated to kill, who went out of their way to avoid killing or even firing their weapons, who held on to their essential humanity in the face of the severest provocations — and yet still won battle after battle, marching to victory in history's greatest war.
Break the next generation of recruits
But far from celebrating this example of genuine glory, the military brass were horrified at the low "firing rates" and anemic "kill ratios" of U.S. soldiery.  They immediately set about trying to break the next generation of recruits of their natural resistance to slaughtering their own kind.
Incorporating the latest techniques for psychological manipulation, new training programs were designed to brutalize the mind and habituate soldiers to the idea of killing automatically, by reflex, without the intervention of any of those "inefficient" scruples displayed by their illustrious predecessors.
And it worked.
The dehumanization process led to a steady rise in firing rates for U.S. soldiers during subsequent conflicts.
In the Korean War, 55 percent were ready to pump hot lead into enemy flesh.
And by the time the greatest generation's own children took the field, in Vietnam, the willingness to slaughter was almost total: 95 percent of combat troops there fired with the intent to kill.
Today, in the quagmire of occupied Iraq, the brutalizing beat goes on.
"Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, it's like it pounds in my brain," a U.S. soldier told the Los Angeles Times last week.
Another shrugged at the sight of freshly killed bodies.
"It doesn't bother me at all," he said. "I'm a warrior."
Said a third: "We talk about killing all the time.  I never used to be this way ... but it's like I can't stop.
I'm worried what I'll be like when I get home."
Now high rates of suicide, mental damage and emotional torment
A few military officials are beginning to worry, too, noting the high rates of suicide, mental damage and emotional torment among combat veterans.
But the warlords of the White House — notorious battlefield shirkers who prefer to do their killing by remote control — have little regard for the cannon fodder they churn through in their quest for dominance and loot.
"Training's intent is to re-create battle, to make it an automatic behavior among soldiers," said Colonel Thomas Burke, Pentagon director of mental health policy.
Any efforts to mitigate the moral schizophrenia induced by this training would undermine "effectiveness in battle," he added.
Yet strangely enough, this "warrior ethos" has singularly failed to produce the kind of lasting victories won by those 15-percenters of yore.
Could it be that the systematic degradation of natural morality and common human feeling — especially in the service of dubious ends — is not actually the best way to achieve national greatness?

Take In A Deep Breath America
 
As far as suicides among active duty soldiers
and veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are concerned,
we in America have just seen the tip of the iceberg.
Two tours will be twice the chance of suicide.
Three tours will be tripple the chance of suicide.
Four tours will be four times the chance of suicide.
These soldiers will be deleted by this country like
unwanted e-mails.
Why?
Because the American people do not support the troops.
Nobody wants to do the math.
Take in a deep breath America,
the wars are coming home to the stuffed closets of your
mind.
When you fall asleep at the wheel,
people die in your neighborhood.
Eventually,
they may die in your own home.
When I was in Vietnam toward the end of the war,
this is what I saw.
Blood on my hands,
brains in my lap.

"The Military is Nowhere; the Press is Nowhere; the Congress is Nowhere...
We've Been Taken Over By a Cult
By SEYMOUR HERSH
US continues its war on killing children
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
A bout what's going on in terms of the President is that as virtuous as I feel, you know, at The New Yorker, writing an alternative history more or less of what's been going on in the last three years, George Bush feels just as virtuous in what he is doing.
He is absolutely committed — I don't know whether he thinks he's doing God's will or what his father didn't do, or whether it's some mandate from — you know, I just don't know, but George Bush thinks this is the right thing.
He is going to continue doing what he has been doing in Iraq.  He's going to expand it, I think, if he can.
I think that the number of body bags that come back will make no difference to him.
The body bags are rolling in.
It makes no difference to him, because he will see it as a price he has to pay to put America where he thinks it should be. 
So, he's inured in a very strange way to people like me, to the politicians, most of them who are too cowardly anyway to do much.
So, the day-to-day anxiety that all of us have, and believe me, though he got 58 million votes, many of the people who voted for him weren't voting for continued warfare, but I think that's what we're going to have.
It's hard to predict the future.
And it's sort of silly to, but the question is: How do you go to him?
How do you get at him?
What can you do to maybe move him off the course that he sees as virtuous and he sees as absolutely appropriate? 
All of us — you have to — I can't begin to exaggerate how frightening the position is — we're in right now, because most of you don't understand, because the press has not done a very good job.
US continues its war on killing children
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
The Senate Intelligence Committee, the new bill that was just passed, provoked by the 9/11 committee actually, is a little bit of a kabuki dance, I guess is what I want to say, in that what it really does is it consolidates an awful lot of power in the Pentagon — by statute now.
It gives Rumsfeld the right to do an awful lot of things he has been wanting to do, and that is basically manhunting and killing them before they kill us, as Peter said.
"They did it to us.  We've got to do it to them."
That is the attitude that — at the very top of our government exists.
And so, I'll just tell you a couple of things that drive me nuts.
We can — you know, there's not much more to go on with.
I think there's a way out of it, maybe.
I can tell you one thing.
Let's all forget this word "insurgency".
It's one of the most misleading words of all.
Insurgency assumes that we had gone to Iraq and won the war and a group of disgruntled people began to operate against us and we then had to do counter-action against them.
That would be an insurgency.
We are fighting the people we started the war against.
We are fighting the Ba'athists plus nationalists.
We are fighting the very people that started — they only choose to fight in different time spans than we want them to, in different places.
We took Baghdad easily.
It wasn't because be won.
British military continues its war on killing children
British taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
We took Baghdad because they pulled back and let us take it and decided to fight a war that had been pre-planned that they're very actively fighting.
The frightening thing about it is, we have no intelligence.
Maybe it's — it's — it is frightening, we have no intelligence about what they're doing.
A year-and-a-half ago, we're up against two and three-man teams.
We estimated the cells operating against us were two and three people, that we could not penetrate.
As of now, we still don't know what's coming next.
There are 10, 15-man groups.
They have terrific communications.
Somebody told me, it's — somebody in the system, an officer — and by the way, the good part of it is, more and more people are available to somebody like me.
There's a lot of anxiety inside the — you know, our professional military and our intelligence people.
Many of them respect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as much as anybody here, and individual freedom.
So, they do — there's a tremendous sense of fear.
These are punitive people.
One of the ways — one of the things that you could say is, the amazing thing is we are been taken over basically by a cult, eight or nine neo-conservatives have somehow grabbed the government.
Just how and why and how they did it so efficiently, will have to wait for much later historians and better documentation than we have now, but they managed to overcome the bureaucracy and the Congress, and the press, with the greatest of ease.
US continues its war on killing children
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
It does say something about how fragile our Democracy is.
You do have to wonder what a Democracy is when it comes down to a few men in the Pentagon and a few men in the White House having their way.
What they have done is neutralize the C.I.A. because there were people there inside — the real goal of what Goss has done was not attack the operational people, but the intelligence people.
There were people — serious senior analysts who disagree with the White House, with Cheney, basically, that's what I mean by White House, and Rumsfeld on a lot of issues.
As somebody said, the goal in the last month has been to separate the apostates from the true believers.
That's what's happening.
The real target has been "diminish the agency."
I'm writing about all of this soon, so I don't want to overdo it, but there's been a tremendous sea change in the government.
A concentration of power.
On the other hand, the facts — there are some facts.
We can't win this war.
We can do what he's doing.
We can bomb them into the stone ages.
Bombing grown exponentially each month
Here's the other horrifying, sort of spectacular fact that we don't really appreciate.
Since we installed our puppet government, this man, Allawi, who was a member of the Mukabarat, the secret police of Saddam, long before he became a critic, and is basically Saddam-lite.
Before we installed him, since we have installed him on June 28, July, August, September, October, November, every month, one thing happened: the number of sorties, bombing raids by one plane, and the number of tonnage dropped has grown exponentially each month.
We are systematically bombing that country.
There are no embedded journalists at Doha, the Air Force base I think we're operating out of.
No embedded journalists at the aircraft carrier, Harry Truman.
That's the aircraft carrier that I think is doing many of the operational fights.
There's no air defense, It's simply a turkey shoot.
They come and hit what they want.
British military continues its war on killing
Son killed by British taxpayer
We know nothing.
We don't ask.
We're not told.
We know nothing about the extent of bombing.
So if they're going to carry out an election and if they're going to succeed, bombing is going to be key to it, which means that what happened in Fallujah, essentially Iraq — some of you remember Vietnam — Iraq is being turn into a "free-fire zone" right in front of us.
Hit everything, kill everything.
I have a friend in the Air Force, a Colonel, who had the awful task of being an urban bombing planner, planning urban bombing, to make urban bombing be as unobtrusive as possible.
I think it was three weeks ago today, three weeks ago Sunday after Fallujah I called him at home.
I'm one of the people — I don't call people at work.
I call them at home, and he has one of those caller I.D.'s, and he picked up the phone and he said, "Welcome to Stalingrad."
We know what we're doing.
This is deliberate.
It's being done.
They're not telling us.
They're not talking about it.
We have a President that — and a Secretary of State that, when a trooper — when a reporter or journalist asked — actually a trooper, a soldier, asked about lack of equipment, stumbled through an answer and the President then gets up and says, "Yes, they should all have good equipment and we're going to do it," as if somehow he wasn't involved in the process. 
Words mean nothing — nothing to George Bush.
They are just utterances.
They have no meaning.
Bush can say again and again, "well, we don't do torture."
We know what happened.
We know about Abu Ghraib.
US continues its war on killing children
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
We know, we see anecdotally.
We all understand in some profound way because so much has come out in the last few weeks, the I.C.R.C. 
The ACLU put out more papers, this is not an isolated incident what's happened with the seven kids and the horrible photographs, Lynndie England.  That's into the not the issue is.
They're fall guys.
Of course, they did wrong.
But you know, when we send kids to fight, one of the things that we do when we send our children to war is the officers become in loco parentis.
That means their job in the military is to protect these kids, not only from getting bullets and being blown up, but also there is nothing as stupid as a 20 or 22-year-old kid with a weapon in a war zone.
Protect them from themselves.
The spectacle of these people doing those antics night after night, for three and a half months only stopped when one of their own soldiers turned them in tells you all you need to know, how many officers knew.
I can just give you a timeline that will tell you all you need to know.  Abu Ghraib was reported in January of 2004 this year.
In May, I and CBS earlier also wrote an awful lot about what was going on there.
At that point, between January and May, our government did nothing.
Although Rumsfeld later acknowledged that he was briefed by the middle of January on it and told the President.
In those three-and-a-half months before it became public, was there any systematic effort to do anything other than to prosecute seven "bad seeds", enlisted kids, reservists from West Virginia and the unit they were in, by the way, Military Police.
The answer is, Ha!
They were basically a bunch of kids who were taught on traffic control, sent to Iraq, put in charge of a prison.
They knew nothing.
It doesn't excuse them from doing dumb things.
But there is another framework.
We're not seeing it.
They've gotten away with it.
My son lies in a casket half a world away
So here's the upside of the horrible story, if there is an upside.
US continues its war on killing children
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
I can tell you the upside in a funny way, in an indirect way.
It comes from a Washington Post piece this week.
A young boy, a Marine, 25-year-old from somewhere in Maryland died.
There was a funeral in the Post, a funeral in Washington, and the Post did a little story about it.
They quoted — his name was Hodak.
His father was quoted.
He had written to a letter in the local newspaper in Southern Virginia.
He had said about his son, he wrote a letter just describing what it was like after his son died.
He said:
"Today everything seems strange.
Laundry is getting done.
I walked my dog.
I ate breakfast.
Somehow I'm still breathing and my heart is still beating.
My son lies in a casket half a world away."
There's going to be — you know, when I did My Lai — I tell this story a lot.
When I did the My Lai story, more than a generation ago, it was 35 years ago, so almost two.
When I did My Lai, one of the things that I discovered was that they had — for some of you, most of you remember, but basically a group of American soldiers — the analogy is so much like today.
War weapon destroyed by Iraq resistance forces
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
Then as now, our soldiers don't see enemies in a battlefield, they just walk on mines or they get shot by snipers, because it's always hidden.
There's inevitable anger and rage and you dehumanize the people.
We have done that with enormous success in Iraq.
They're "rag-heads".
They're less than human.
The casualty count — as in Sudan, equally as bad.
Staggering numbers that we're killing.
In any case, you know, it's — in this case, these — a group of soldiers in 1968 went into a village.
They had been in Vietnam for three months and lost about 10% of their people, maybe 10 or 15 to accidents, killings and bombings, and they ended up — they thought they would meet the enemy and there were 550 women, children and old men and they executed them all.
It took a day.
They stopped in the middle and they had lunch.
One of the kids who had done a lot of shooting.
The Black and Hispanic soldiers, about 40 of them, there were about 90 men in the unit — the Blacks and Hispanics shot in the air.
They wouldn't shoot into the ditch.
They collected people in three ditches and just began to shoot them.
The Blacks and Hispanics shot up in the air, but the mostly White, lower middle class, the kids who join the Army Reserve today and National Guard looking for extra dollars, those kind of kids did the killing.
One of them was a man named Paul Medlow, who did an awful lot of shooting.
The next day, there was a moment — one of the things that everybody remembered, the kids who were there, one of the mothers at the bottom of a ditch had taken a child, a boy, about two, and got him under her stomach in such a way that he wasn't killed.
Speaking truth at last
Sadr City, Baghdad
When they were sitting having the K rations — that's what they called them — MRE's now — the kid somehow crawled up through the [inaudible] screaming louder and he began — and Calley, the famous Lieutenant Calley, the Lynndie England of that tragedy, told Medlow: Kill him, "Plug him," he said.
And Medlow somehow, who had done an awful lot as I say, 200 bullets, couldn't do it so Calley ran up as everybody watched, with his carbine.
Officers had a smaller weapon, a rifle, and shot him in the back of the head.
The next morning, Medlow stepped on a mine and he had his foot blown off.
He was being medevac'd out.
As he was being medevac'd out, he cursed and everybody remembered, one of the chilling lines, he said, "God has punished me, and he's going to punish you, too."
They sent me back a murderer
So a year-and-a-half later, I'm doing this story.
And I hear about Medlow.
I called his mother up.
He lived in New Goshen, Indiana.
I said, "I'm coming to see you.
I don't remember where I was, I think it was Washington State.
I flew over there and to get there, you had to go to — I think Indianapolis and then to Terre Haute, rent a car and drive down into the Southern Indiana, this little farm.
Children look through blood stained window caused by US forces
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
It was a scene out of Norman Rockwell's.
Some of you remember the Norman Rockwell paintings.
It's a chicken farm.
The mother is 50, but she looks 80.
Gristled, old.
Way old — hard scrabble life, no man around.
I said I'm here to see your son, and she said, okay.
He's in there.
He knows you're coming.
Then she said, one of these great — she said to me, "I gave them a good boy.  And they sent me back a murderer." 
So you go on 35 years.
I'm doing in The New Yorker, the Abu Ghraib stories.
I think I did three in three weeks.
If some of you know about The New Yorker, that's unbelievable.
But in the middle of all of this, I get a call from a mother in the East coast, Northeast, working class, lower middle class, very religious, Catholic family.
She said, I have to talk to you.
I go see her.
I drive somewhere, fly somewhere, and her story is simply this.
She had a daughter that was in the military police unit that was at Abu Ghraib.
And the whole unit had come back in March, of — The sequence is:  they get there in the fall of 2003.
They reported after doing their games in the January of 2004.
In March she is sent home.
Nothing is public yet.
The daughter is sent home.
The whole unit is sent home.
She comes home a different person.
She had been married.
She was young.
She went into the Reserves, I think it was the Army Reserves to get money, not for college or for — you know, these — some of these people worked as night clerks in pizza shops in West Virginia.
This not — this is not very sophisticated.
She came back and she left her husband.
Damage caused by US airstrike
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
She just had been married before.
She left her husband, moved out of the house, moved out of the city, moved out to another home, another apartment in another city and began working a different job.
And moved away from everybody.
Then over — as the spring went on, she would go every weekend, this daughter, and every weekend she would go to a tattoo shop and get large black tattoos put on her, over increasingly — over her body, the back, the arms, the legs, and her mother was frantic.
What's going on?
Comes Abu Ghraib, and she reads the stories, and she sees it.
And she says to her daughter, "Were you there?"
She goes to the apartment.
The daughter slams the door.
The mother then goes — the daughter had come home — before she had gone to Iraq, the mother had given her a portable computer.
One of the computers that had a DVD in it, with the idea being that when she was there, she could watch movies, you know, while she was overseas, sort of a — I hadn't thought about it, a great idea.
Turns out a lot of people do it.
She had given her a portable computer, and when the kid came back she had returned it, one of the things, and the mother then said I went and looked at the computer.
She knows — she doesn't know about depression.
She doesn't know about Freud.
She just said, I was just — I was just going to clean it up, she said.
I had decided to use it again.
She wouldn't say anything more why she went to look at it after Abu Ghraib.
She opened it up, and sure enough there was a file marked "Iraq".
She hit the button.
Out came 100 photographs.
They were photographs that became — one of them was published.
We published one, just one in The New Yorker.
It was about an Arab.
The dogs did bite the man — pretty hard.   A lot of blood.
This is something no mother should see and daughter should see too.
Generator destroyed by US
US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
It was the Arab man leaning against bars, the prisoner naked, two dogs, two shepherds, remember, on each side of him.
The New Yorker published it, a pretty large photograph.
What we didn't publish was the sequence showed the dogs did bite the man — pretty hard.
A lot of blood.
So she saw that and she called me, and away we go.
There's another story.
For me, it's just another story, but out of this comes a core of — you know, we all deal in "macro" in Washington.
On the macro, we're hopeless.
We're nowhere.
The press is nowhere.
The congress is nowhere.
The military is nowhere. 
Every four-star General I know is saying, "Who is going to tell them we have no clothes?"
Nobody is going to do it.
Everybody is afraid to tell Rumsfeld anything.
That's just the way it is.
It's a system built on fear.
It's not lack of integrity, it's more profound than that.
Because there is individual integrity.
It's a system that's completely been taken over — by cultists.
Anyway, what's going to happen, I think, as the casualties mount and these stories get around, and the mothers see the cost and the fathers see the cost, as the kids come home.
And the wounded ones come back, and there's wards that you will never hear about.
That's wards — you know about the terrible catastrophic injuries, but you don't know about the vegetables.
There's ward after ward of vegetables because the brain injuries are so enormous.
As you maybe read last week, there was a new study in one of the medical journals that the number of survivors are greater with catastrophic injuries because of their better medical treatment and the better armor they have.
So you get more extreme injuries to extremities.
We're going to learn more and I think you're going to see, it's going to — it's — I'm trying to be optimistic.
We're going to see a bottom swelling from inside the ranks.
You're beginning to see it.
What happened with the soldiers asking those questions, you may see more of that.
I'm not suggesting we're going to have mutinies, but I'm going to suggest you're going to see more dissatisfaction being expressed.
Maybe that will do it.
Another salvation may be the economy.
It's going to go very bad, folks.
You know, if you have not sold your stocks and bought property in Italy, you better do it quick.
And the third thing is Europe — Europe is not going to tolerate us much longer.
The rage there is enormous.
I'm talking about our old-fashioned allies.
We could see something there, collective action against us.
Certainly, nobody — it's going to be an awful lot of dancing on our graves as the dollar goes bad and everybody stops buying our bonds, our credit — our — we're spending $2 billion a day to float the debt, and one of these days, the Japanese and the Russians, everybody is going to start buying oil in Euros instead of dollars.

Alex Jones is right that US tax money is sucked up by an elite controlled US Federal Reserve
The Iraq war since its first bombings has been funded by US bonds bought by China, Japan and Saudi Arabia.
But this level of reality can no more be absorbed by the peons — worker bound in servitude to an elite bank creditor — who do their daily toil each day, than the reality that the 9/11 buildings were blown up from below.
China and America: The Tibet Human Rights PsyOp
The human rights issue has become the centerfold of media disinformation.
China is no model of human rights but neither are the US and its indefectible British ally, responsible for extensive war crimes and human rights violations in Iraq and around the World.
The US and its allies, which uphold the practice of torture, political assassinations and the establishment of secret detention camps, continue to be presented to public opinion as a model of Western democracy to be emulated by developing countries, in contrast to Russia, Iran, North Korea and the People's Republic of China.
US airstrike kills 6 non-combative people, Iraq, wounds 27 people
by Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, April 13, 2008
Human Rights "Double Standards"
While China's alleged human rights violations in relation to Tibet are highlighted, the recent wave of killings in Iraq and Palestine are not mentioned.
The Western media has barely acknowledged the Fifth "anniversary" of Iraq's "Liberation" and the balance sheet of the US sponsored killings and atrocities perpetrated against an entire population, in the name of a "global war on terrorism".
There are more than 1.2 million Iraqi civilian deaths, 3 million wounded.
The United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) indicates a figure of 2.2 million Iraqi refugees who have fled their country and 2.4 million "internally displaced persons":
"Iraq’s population at the time of the US invasion in March 2003 was roughly 27 million, and today it is approximately 23 million.
Elementary arithmetic indicates that currently over half the population of Iraq are either refugees, in need of emergency aid, wounded, or dead." (Dahr Jamail, Global Research, December 2007)
US airstrike kills 6 non-combative people, Iraq, wounds 27 people
The Geopolitical Chessboard
There are deep-seated geopolitical objectives behind the campaign against the Chinese leadership.
US-NATO-Israeli war plans in relation to Iran are at an advanced state of readiness.
China has economic ties as well as a far-reaching bilateral military cooperation agreement with Iran.
Moreover, China is also an ally of Russia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan in the context of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
Since 2005, Iran has an observer member status within the SCO.
In turn, the SCO has ties to the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), an overlapping military cooperation agreement between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan.
In October of last year the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) signed a Memorandum of Understanding, laying the foundations for military cooperation between the two organizations.
This SCO-CSTO agreement, barely mentioned by the Western media, involves the creation of a full-fledged military alliance between China, Russia and the member states of SCO/CSTO.
It is worth noting that the SCTO and the SCO held joint military exercises in 2006, which coincided with those conducted by Iran.
(For further details see Michel Chossudovsky, Russia and Central Asian Allies Conduct War Games in Response to US Threats, Global Research, August 2006)
In the context of US war plans directed against Iran, the US is also intent upon weakening Iran's allies, namely Russia and China.
In the case of China, Washington is seaking to disrupt Beijing's bilateral ties with Tehran as well as Iran's rapprochement with the SCO, which has its headquarters in Beijing.
China is an ally of Iran.
Washington's intention is to use Beijing's alleged human rights violations as a pretext to target China, an ally of Iran.
In this regard, a military operation directed against Iran can only succeed if the structure of military alliances which link Iran to China and Russia is disrupted.
This is something which German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck understood in relation to the structure of competing military alliances prevalent prior to World War I.
The Triple Alliance was an agreement between Germany, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Italy formed in 1882.
In 1907, an Anglo-Russian agreement paved the way for the formation of the Triple Entente made up of France, the U.K. and Russia.
The Triple Alliance ultimately came to an end in 1914, when Italy withdrew from the alliance and declared its neutrality, thereby paving the way for the outbreak of World War I.
History points to the importance of competing military alliances.
In the present context, the US and its NATO partners are seaking to undermine the formation of a cohesive Eurasian SCO-CSTO military alliance, which could effectively challenge and contain US-NATO military expansionism in Eurasia, combining the military capabilities not only of Russia and China, but also those of several former Soviet republics including Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan Uzbekistan and the Kyrgyz Republic.

This is the reality of current US interrogation techniques — they sometimes result in death.
Then they are considered torture.
Hung by your wrists for an extended period, gagged, and beaten so harshly that you have almost 30 rib fractures and a broken sternum, but still alive?
No major organ failure?
Not torture, according to John Yoo and our administration has stated it concurs.
Receiving zero medical care.
Actually losing consiousness and "becoming pulseless" while still hanging.
Feeling your broken ribs slice into your lungs, the skin falling off your wrists where the handcuffs are supporting your weight.
Repeatedly shitting yourself.
As there is simply no other choice.

Iraqi In Custody Tortured To Death
After the shock of the abuse photos, there's a worse new allegation against US troops.
Spiegel TV has acquired written and oral documentation indicating that a 47 year old Iraqi was tortured to death in American custody. The Americans are alleged to have attempted to cover the case up.
Der Spiegel/Information Clearing House
May 15 2004
Spiegel TV Exclusive (Translated by S.B.)
05/15/04 — Berlin - The case of Asad Abdul Kareem Abdul Jaleel was pure routine for the American troops.
After the 47 year old family father died on the US military base Al Asad west of the town of Khan al Baghdad in US custody on January 9th 2004, an American doctor filled out a death certificate.
Apparently without doing an examination, and according to the documents, without performing an autopsy, the pathologist Luis A. Santiago wrote that the man had died in his sleep.
The US troops handed the body, including the death certificate, over to the International Red Cross shortly thereafter.
American troops had previously arrested the respected family patriarch on an open road and taken him to the American military base Al Asad west of the town of Khan al Baghdad.
Ostensibly there was suspicion that he belonged to the Iraqi resistance.
The soldiers are alleged to have put enormous pressure on Asad Abdul Kareem Abdul Jaleel in the base prison.
Another prisoner gave Spiegel TV a detailed description of how the 47 year old was tortured in a sadistic manner for five days.
The witness says that the soldiers also took photographs of the abuse.
Asad Abdul Kareem Abdul Jaleel died in US detention on January 9th of this year.
However, there are grave doubts about the version that claims his death to have been from natural causes.
An Iraqi forensic pathologist who took the body over from the US armed forces confirmed to Spiegel TV in Baghdad that he diagnosed definite torture marks on the body of the deceased.
In addition, photos of the deceased confirm that contrary to the US documentation, an autopsy had been performed on the man.
The scars on the torso indicate that Western doctors did the autopsy.
Deep Dark Bruises on the Entire Body
Even a layman can easily recognize the obvious effects of violence on the pictures of the body: Large, dark bruises that could come from beatings can be seen on both sides of the body.
On the wrists and ankles there are bruises, which presumably date back to many days of captivity.
There are bruises from beatings or other forms of violent impact on the back.
Other lacerations on the upper body point to injuries which can hardly be called "natural".
If the suspicious facts against the US troops turn out to be true, the US torture scandal would take a dramatic turn.
If the charges hitherto were about violent abuses of prisoners and humiliating methods of interrogation, the investigation would now have to include failure to give assistance, manslaughter, or even murder.
The participating soldiers and their commanding officers could be harshly punished, and the US army in Iraq would be exposed to even more hate and desire for revenge than they already are.
Although there are already a number of investigations being carried out about unclarified deaths in Iraq, and also in Afghanistan, — the army insists that in none of the cases can the guilt of the soldiers be proven.
According to the research of Spiegel TV, the case of the family father Jaleel in occupied Iraq is not a rarity.
Employees of the Forensic Pathology Institute in Baghdad confirm that among the bodies that the International Red Cross has handed over to them on behalf of the Americans there are always victims of torture.
However, the Iraqi pathologists are forbidden to do their own investigation as long as there is an American death certificate — even if the information about the cause of death is obviously false.
The US Army Remains Silent
About five bodies with US Armed Forces death certificates are handed over every week in Baghdad alone, according to the employees of the Institute.
The established practice of the Americans is to declare bodies that come from the prison at Abu Ghuraib as victims of grenade attacks on the camp.
This was the case with the bodies of 26 detainees last week, even though only some of the bodies showed injuries typical of grenade attacks, the employees said.
Meanwhile in the case of the 47 year old Asad Abdul Kareem Abdul Jaleel, there appears to be an internal investigation of the US troops going on.
Witnesses report that they have been questioned by US soldiers about the procedures on the American military base Al Asad.
Spiegel TV has been attempting to get a statement from the responsible authorities of the army in Baghdad for several days.
Up to now, however, all written as well as oral questions remain unanswered.

Autopsy Report Asad Abdul Kareem Abdul Jaleel

An Iraq man, Asad Abdul Kareem Abdul Jaleel, who died hanging by his cuffed wrists from a door frame, gagged, and beaten to death by his US interrogators.
Opinion — Chief Deputy Medical Examiner
This 47-year-old White male died of blunt force injuries and asphyxia.
The autopsy disclosed multiple blunt force injuries, including deep contusions of the chest wall, numerous displaced rib fractures, lung contusions, and hemorrhage into the mesentery of the small and large intestine.
An examination of the neck structures revealed hemorrhage into the strap muscles and fractures of the thyroid cartilage and hyoid bone.
According to the investigative report provided by U.S. Army CID, the decedent was shackled to the top of a doorframe with a gag in his mouth at the time he lost consciousness and became pulseless.
The severe blunt force injuries, the hanging position, and the obstruction of the oral cavity with a gag contributed to this individual's death.
The manner of death is homicide.

Indonesia's 9/11 — Exposing US government operations in the Bali Bombing
Kewe
Questioning War, Organizing Resistance
- Carol Brouillet
Glen Clancy, from Victoria, Australia, created "Fool Me Twice" described as 'A documentary about the Australian government's lies about the East Timor massacres, the cover-up of the Bali Bombings and subsequent anti-terror laws.'
The 25 year old, Clancy is Australia's Dylan Avery (of Loose Change fame).
The work was originally created to be viewed online, but Clancy is working on improving the resolution for larger screen and theatrical viewing.
Glen wrote on December 4, 2008
To all,
After discovering 911 was an inside job, through such movies as Loose Change, Terrorstorm and Zeitgeist, I decided to investigate the Bali bombings. The evidence was overwhelming. There had been a cover-up.
As shocking as the truth may be, please keep an open mind while viewing this documentary. FOOL ME TWICE is 100% sourced. Please see reference list below. I tried to produce a documentary as true to the genre as possible, limiting opinion and simply documenting the facts.
I believe that 911 Truth is one of the most important movements of our time and exposing the cover-up of the 2002 Bali bombings can help destroy the "911/War on terror/Al-CIAda" myth.
Please help spread this information.
Kind regards,
Glen

Firefighters for 9/11 Truth
Erik Lawyer:
I, like most Americans, remember exactly where I was when I saw the attacks and had the overwhelming urge to take action.
I was shocked, outraged, scared and confused.
I called my Battalion Chief and asked if Seattle would be sending any teams to help.
I was a member of the MMST, and figured we would be needed and I wanted to know where to report.
Due to the nature of the incident we were not called up, and instead USAR teams, including Seattle's, were sent.
I first visited Ground Zero in October of 2001 with several firefighters from Seattle.
We went to pay our respect and show support.
We raised money for our brother firehouses and attended the funerals of our fallen Brothers.
I was deeply moved and humbled by the community support, the sheer enormity of the tragedy along with the courage and compassion of the FDNY "Brotherhood."
I vividly remember the anger, the intense desire for vengeance,the feelings of helplessness
Even though I listened to their stories for days, I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and tragedy they suffered on that day and the years to come.
I vividly remember the anger I felt, the intense desire for vengeance, and the feelings of helplessness.
I was relieved when the government identified the terrorists and satisfied that we were going to have a swift deliverance of "justice."
I've been a conservative my entire life; a registered Republican since I could vote.
I am a self proclaimed Patriot with George Washington as one of my all time heroes.
So when conspiracy theories quickly surfaced, and "Liberals" cried foul on the erosion of civil liberties, I chalked it up to their political beliefs and bitterness towards the Republican President.
I read many debunking articles — including Popular Mechanics — and watched many debunking videos including, Farenhype 9/11.
I was convinced that these "Liberals" were misinformed and were grasping at straws to discredit the "official" story.
Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my mind made up!
Like most people with strong opinions, instead of looking at all the facts, I was specifically looking for anything that supported my own beliefs.
As soon as I discovered any inaccuracy in a conspiracy claim, I wrote it off.
My father, a big city cop and Korean War veteran, loved to say, "don't confuse me with the facts, I have my mind made up!"
Well, I had my mind made up.
I told conspiracy theorists like my own Truck Officer, Lt. Earl Emerson, that they were insane if they thought anyone other than the terrorists did this.
Bin Laden confession tapes — how much clearer did they need it
Heck, we have ID cards, security camera videos, Bin Laden confession tapes — how much clearer did they need it?
The years went on and I was satisfied in my beliefs.
I even believed these "Wackos" that doubted the "official" story were distracting our country from focusing on the real threat of terrorism...
Fast forward to March of 2008.
A great friend of mine with a Business degree from West Point, as conservative and non-conspiratorial as they get, came over one night to talk about what he saw happening in the economy.
Began researching such things as economies, who is in control of currencies
He provided some disconcerting evidence that we as a nation are at risk of entering into another depression; he pointed out historical parallels where other countries, such as Germany, suffered economic collapse.
THAT was my eye opener.
I became obsessed researching things such as economies, who is in control of currencies, what causes depressions, who profits during war, etc.
So many things kept pointing to 9/11.
Another one of my dad's favorite quotes was, "believe half of what you see and none of what you hear."
So, I looked at both sides and quickly noticed a pattern.
On one side, the general media ignores some of the most compelling evidence that contradicts the "official" story...
When I voiced my new opinion and concerns most of my friends listened.
Shocked that a staunch Conservative could have such a major shift
I think because they were shocked that a staunch Conservative could have such a major shift, or because they thought I had lost my mind and wanted to diagnose the cause.
Curiously, some became angry at my new questions and actually thought I was supporting Terrorists with my concerns.
Being a part of that same mindset myself only a few weeks ago, and then having a major shift in consciousness, really shook me to the core.
What has happened to our collective consciousness that we believe anyone who doubts the "official" story or what the government tells us is an enemy?
What has happened to us — are we not founded on Freedom of Speech and taught to check our Government?
Anyone who asks for the Truth is labeled a "Wacko" or "Terrorist Sympathizer?"
What has happened to us?
Are we not founded on Freedom of Speech and taught to check our Government?...
To be honest, I was asleep at the wheel, and relied on what I was being told by mainstream media.
The same media whose parent corporations, are some of the largest suppliers of weapons in this war.
Before this "awakening" I had no idea the extent of our civil liberties that had been eroded in the name of Terrorism.
I had never really wrapped my brain around what legalized torture means.
I had always claimed America was noble.
Just look at how we treated POW's during WWII and Vietnam compared to our enemies.
[Ever check out the real story of John McCain as a POW, keep investigating! — TheWE.cc]
That separated us.
We were setting the example of Human Rights to the rest of the world.
[Check out the real facts of US instigations in Central and South America! — TheWE.cc]
Sure, you'll always have individuals that will take things too far, but Government sponsored torture?
[Let's mention CIA activity across the planet since its inception, including inside the US, and other black budget US government special operations agencies! — TheWE.cc]
What has happened to our country?
What kind of example are we setting for our children, and the world?
You would be interested to learn how many of our own rights have been stripped away recently.
Look up the Military Commissions Act of 2006, John Warner Defense Authorization Act, Homegrown Terrorism Act, Presidential Directive 51.
Amazing the rights we have all lost
It is amazing the rights we have all lost in the past couple of years and very little is covered by the U.S. media.
After discovering this, I applied the "common sense" test that my Grandfather always said wasn't so common.
Why would a government so aggressively suppress truth and blatantly destroy evidence if there was nothing to hide?
Why has every testimony from sworn government and military officials that points to "prior knowledge" been stricken from the 9/11 Commission Report?
How did paper business cards, cloth bandanas, and plastic ID's that implicate the terrorists survive so neatly through jet fueled fireballs hot enough to destroy titanium and steel?
I've seen bodies burned beyond recognition, yet I have never found one that was wearing unburned clothing.
These questions alone are enough to make me risk everything for a real investigation and accounting...
When I truly realized the enormity of the effect 9/11 has had on our Rights, our Economy, our Beliefs, our Fears, our Intolerances and our Government — I felt fear, then anger, then the need to take action.
Bill Chickering said it best:
"Anger is a very appropriate and necessary response to an injustice.
"But stand back now; the truth, clearly spoken, is always your best weapon.
"Calmly spoken, it can burn a hole through the hardest heart."
When I realized the extent of the force and attitudes working to silence those who peacefully ask questions, demand answers, and seek truth, it became clear to me that our Country is in serious trouble and I must now stand alongside those Patriots who seek Truth and Constitutional Restoration.

9/11
By all accounts, the unprecedented events of September 11th, 2001 changed the way our country functions, and in turn, the world.
It is therefore critical that conscientious Americans, as well as people around the globe, understand these events in detail.
Unfortunately the official reports, including The 9/11 Commission Report and the NIST WTC Report, written by those working under the direction of the Bush Administration, have been proven to be elaborate cover-ups.
Film: 9/11 Revisited
September 11th Revisited is perhaps the most riveting film ever made about the destruction of the World Trade Center.
This is a powerful documentary which features eyewitness accounts and archived news footage that was shot on September 11, 2001 but never replayed on television.
Featuring interviews with eyewitnesses & firefighters, along with expert analysis by Professor Steven E. Jones, Professor David Ray Griffin, MIT Engineer Jeffrey King, and Professor James H. Fetzer.
This film provides stunning evidence that explosives were used in the complete demolition of the WTC Twin Towers and WTC Building 7.

Five Israelis were seen filming as jet liners ploughed into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 ...
Were they part of a massive spy ring which shadowed the 9/11 hijackers and knew that al-Qaeda planned a devastating terrorist attack on the USA?
Neil Mackay investigates
THERE was ruin and terror in Manhattan, but, over the Hudson River in New Jersey, a handful of men were dancing.   As the World Trade Centre burned and crumpled, the five men celebrated and filmed the worst atrocity ever committed on American soil as it played out before their eyes.
Who do you think they were?   Palestinians?   Saudis?   Iraqis, even?   Al-Qaeda, surely?   Wrong on all counts.   They were Israelis — and at least two of them were Israeli intelligence agents, working for Mossad, the equivalent of MI6 or the CIA.
Their discovery and arrest that morning is a matter of indisputable fact.   To those who have investigated just what the Israelis were up to that day, the case raises one dreadful possibility: that Israeli intelligence had been shadowing the al-Qaeda hijackers as they moved from the Middle East through Europe and into America where they trained as pilots and prepared to suicide-bomb the symbolic heart of the United States.   And the motive?   To bind America in blood and mutual suffering to the Israeli cause.
After the attacks on New York and Washington, the former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, was asked what the terrorist strikes would mean for US-Israeli relations.   He said: “It’s very good.”   Then he corrected himself, adding: “Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy [for Israel from Americans].”
If Israel’s closest ally felt the collective pain of mass civilian deaths at the hands of terrorists, then Israel would have an unbreakable bond with the world’s only hyperpower and an effective free hand in dealing with the Palestinian terrorists who had been murdering its innocent civilians as the second intifada dragged on throughout 2001.
It’s not surprising that the New Jersey housewife who first spotted the five Israelis and their white van wants to preserve her anonymity.   She’s insisted that she only be identified as Maria.   A neighbour in her apartment building had called her just after the first strike on the Twin Towers.   Maria grabbed a pair of binoculars and, like millions across the world, she watched the horror of the day unfold.
As she gazed at the burning towers, she noticed a group of men kneeling on the roof of a white van in her parking lot.   Here’s her recollection: “They seemed to be taking a movie.   They were like happy, you know ... they didn’t look shocked to me.   I thought it was strange.”
Maria jotted down the van’s registration and called the police.   The FBI was alerted and soon there was a statewide all points bulletin put out for the apprehension of the van and its occupants.   The cops traced the number, establishing that it belonged to a company called Urban Moving.
Police Chief John Schmidig said: “We got an alert to be on the lookout for a white Chevrolet van with New Jersey registration and writing on the side.   Three individuals were seen celebrating in Liberty State Park after the impact.   They said three people were jumping up and down.”
By 4pm on the afternoon of September 11, the van was spotted near New Jersey’s Giants stadium.   A squad car pulled it over and inside were five men in their 20s.   They were hustled out of the car with guns levelled at their heads and handcuffed.
In the car was $4700 in cash, a couple of foreign passports and a pair of box cutters — the concealed Stanley Knife-type blades used by the 19 hijackers who’d flown jetliners into the World Trade Centre and Pentagon just hours before.   There were also fresh pictures of the men standing with the smouldering wreckage of the Twin Towers in the background.   One image showed a hand flicking a lighter in front of the devastated buildings, like a fan at a pop concert.   The driver of the van then told the arresting officers: “We are Israeli.   We are not your problem.   Your problems are our problems.   The Palestinians are the problem.”


His name was Sivan Kurzberg.   The other four passengers were Kurzberg’s brother Paul, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari.   The men were dragged off to prison and transferred out of the custody of the FBI’s Criminal Division and into the hands of their Foreign Counterintelligence Section — the bureau’s anti-espionage squad.
A warrant was issued for a search of the Urban Moving premises in Weehawken in New Jersey.   Boxes of papers and computers were removed.   The FBI questioned the firm’s Israeli owner, Dominik Otto Suter, but when agents returned to re-interview him a few days later, he was gone.   An employee of Urban Moving said his co-workers had laughed about the Manhattan attacks the day they happened.   “I was in tears,” the man said.   “These guys were joking and that bothered me.   These guys were like, ‘Now America knows what we go through.’”
Vince Cannistraro, former chief of operations for counter-terrorism with the CIA, says the red flag went up among investigators when it was discovered that some of the Israelis’ names were found in a search of the national intelligence database.   Cannistraro says many in the US intelligence community believed that some of the Israelis were working for Mossad and there was speculation over whether Urban Moving had been “set up or exploited for the purpose of launching an intelligence operation against radical Islamists”.
This makes it clear that there was no suggestion whatsoever from within American intelligence that the Israelis were colluding with the 9/11 hijackers — simply that the possibility remains that they knew the attacks were going to happen, but effectively did nothing to help stop them.
After the owner vanished, the offices of Urban Moving looked as if they’d been closed down in a big hurry.   Mobile phones were littered about, the office phones were still connected and the property of at least a dozen clients were stacked up in the warehouse.   The owner had cleared out his family home in New Jersey and returned to Israel.
Two weeks after their arrest, the Israelis were still in detention, held on immigration charges.   Then a judge ruled that they should be deported.   But the CIA scuppered the deal and the five remained in custody for another two months.   Some went into solitary confinement, all underwent two polygraph tests and at least one underwent up to seven lie detector sessions before they were eventually deported at the end of November 2001.   Paul Kurzberg refused to take a lie detector test for 10 weeks, but then failed it.   His lawyer said he was reluctant to take the test as he had once worked for Israeli intelligence in another country.
Nevertheless, their lawyer, Ram Horvitz, dismissed the allegations as “stupid and ridiculous”.   Yet US government sources still maintained that the Israelis were collecting information on the fundraising activities of groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad.   Mark Regev, of the Israeli embassy in Washington, would have none of that and he said the allegations were “simply false”.   The men themselves claimed they’d read about the World Trade Centre attacks on the internet, couldn’t see it from their office and went to the parking lot for a better view.   Their lawyers and the embassy say their ghoulish and sinister celebrations as the Twin Towers blazed and thousands died were due to youthful foolishness.
The respected New York Jewish newspaper, The Forward, reported in March 2002, however, that it had received a briefing on the case of the five Israelis from a US official who was regularly updated by law enforcement agencies.   This is what he told The Forward: “The assessment was that Urban Moving Systems was a front for the Mossad and operatives employed by it.”   He added that “the conclusion of the FBI was that they were spying on local Arabs”, but the men were released because they “did not know anything about 9/11”.


Back in Israel, several of the men discussed what happened on an Israeli talk show.   One of them made this remarkable comment: “The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily.   Our purpose was to document the event.”   But how can you document an event unless you know it is going to happen?
We are now deep in conspiracy theory territory.   But there is more than a little circumstantial evidence to show that Mossad — whose motto is “By way of deception, thou shalt do war” — was spying on Arab extremists in the USA and may have known that September 11 was in the offing, yet decided to withhold vital information from their American counterparts which could have prevented the terror attacks.
Following September 11, 2001, more than 60 Israelis were taken into custody under the Patriot Act and immigration laws.   One highly placed investigator told Carl Cameron of Fox News that there were “tie-ins” between the Israelis and September 11; the hint was clearly that they’d gathered intelligence on the planned attacks but kept it to themselves.
The Fox News source refused to give details, saying: “Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified.   I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered.   It’s classified information.”   Fox News is not noted for its condemnation of Israel; it’s a ruggedly patriotic news channel owned by Rupert Murdoch and was President Bush’s main cheerleader in the war on terror and the invasion of Iraq.
Another group of around 140 Israelis were detained prior to September 11, 2001, in the USA as part of a widespread investigation into a suspected espionage ring run by Israel inside the USA.   Government documents refer to the spy ring as an “organised intelligence-gathering operation” designed to “penetrate government facilities”.   Most of those arrested had served in the Israeli armed forces — but military service is compulsory in Israel.   Nevertheless, a number had an intelligence background.
The first glimmerings of an Israeli spying exercise in the USA came to light in spring 2001, when the FBI sent a warning to other federal agencies alerting them to be wary of visitors calling themselves “Israeli art students” and attempting to bypass security at federal buildings in order to sell paintings.   A Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) report suggested the Israeli calls “may well be an organised intelligence-gathering activity”.   Law enforcement documents say that the Israelis “targeted and penetrated military bases” as well as the DEA, FBI and dozens of government facilities, including secret offices and the unlisted private homes of law enforcement and intelligence personnel.


A number of Israelis questioned by the authorities said they were students from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, but Pnina Calpen, a spokeswoman for the Israeli school, did not recognise the names of any Israelis mentioned as studying there in the past 10 years.   A federal report into the so-called art students said many had served in intelligence and electronic signal intercept units during their military service.
According to a 61-page report, drafted after an investigation by the DEA and the US immigration service, the Israelis were organised into cells of four to six people.
The significance of what the Israelis were doing didn’t emerge until after September 11, 2001, when a report by a French intelligence agency noted “according to the FBI, Arab terrorists and suspected terror cells lived in Phoenix, Arizona, as well as in Miami and Hollywood, Florida, from December 2000 to April 2001 in direct proximity to the Israeli spy cells”.
The report contended that Mossad agents were spying on Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehi, two of leaders of the 9/11 hijack teams.   The pair had settled in Hollywood, Florida, along with three other hijackers, after leaving Hamburg — where another Mossad team was operating close by.
Hollywood in Florida is a town of just 25,000 souls.   The French intelligence report says the leader of the Mossad cell in Florida rented apartments “right near the apartment of Atta and al-Shehi”.   More than a third of the Israeli “art students” claimed residence in Florida.   Two other Israelis connected to the art ring showed up in Fort Lauderdale.   At one time, eight of the hijackers lived just north of the town.
Put together, the facts do appear to indicate that Israel knew that 9/11, or at least a large-scale terror attack, was about to take place on American soil, but did nothing to warn the USA.   But that’s not quite true.   In August 2001, the Israelis handed over a list of terrorist suspects — on it were the names of four of the September 11 hijackers.   Significantly, however, the warning said the terrorists were planning an attack “ outside the United States”.
The Israeli embassy in Washington has dismissed claims about the spying ring as “simply untrue”.   The same denials have been issued repeatedly by the five Israelis seen high-fiving each other as the World Trade Centre burned in front of them.
Their lawyer, Ram Horwitz, insisted his clients were not intelligence officers.   Irit Stoffer, the Israeli foreign minister, said the allegations were “completely untrue”.   She said the men were arrested because of “visa violations”, adding: “The FBI investigated those cases because of 9/11.”
Jim Margolin, an FBI spokesman in New York, implied that the public would never know the truth, saying: “If we found evidence of unauthorised intelligence operations that would be classified material.”   Yet, Israel has long been known, according to US administration sources, for “ conducting the most aggressive espionage operations against the US of any US ally”.   Seventeen years ago, Jonathan Pollard, a civilian working for the American Navy, was jailed for life for passing secrets to Israel.   At first, Israel claimed Pollard was part of a rogue operation, but the government later took responsibility for his work.
It has always been a long-accepted agreement among allies — such as Britain and America or America and Israel — that neither country will jail a “friendly spy” nor shame the allied country for espionage.   Chip Berlet, a senior analyst at Boston’s Political Research Associates and an expert in intelligence, says: “It’s a backdoor agreement between allies that says that if one of your spies gets caught and didn’t do too much harm, he goes home.   It goes on all the time.   The official reason is always visa violation.”
What we are left with, then, is fact sullied by innuendo.   Certainly, it seems, Israel was spying within the borders of the United States and it is equally certain that the targets were Islamic extremists probably linked to September 11.   But did Israel know in advance that the Twin Towers would be hit and the world plunged into a war without end; a war which would give Israel the power to strike its enemies almost without limit?   That’s a conspiracy theory too far, perhaps.   But the unpleasant feeling that, in this age of spin and secrets, we do not know the full and unadulterated truth won’t go away.   Maybe we can guess, but it’s for the history books to discover and decide.

    Airline stock puts
    trenchant quote:
    "Between August 26 and September 11, 2001, a group of speculators, identified by the American Securities and Exchange Commission as Israeli citizens, sold "short" a list of 38 stocks that could reasonably be expected to fall in value as a result of the pending attacks.
    These speculators operated out of the Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany, stock exchanges and their profits were specifically stated to be "in the millions of dollars."

    SEC SECRET PROBE OF STOCK DEALINGS BEFORE 9/11
    Between August 26 and September 11, 2001, a group of speculators, identified by the American Securities and Exchange Commission as Israeli citizens, sold "short" a list of 38 stocks that could reasonably be expected to fall in value as a result of the pending attacks.
    These speculators operated out of the Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany, stock exchanges and their profits were specifically stated to be "in the millions of dollars."
    Short selling of stocks involves the opportunity to gain large profits by passing shares to a friendly third party, then buying them back when the price falls.
    Historically, if this precedes a traumatic event, it is an indication of foreknowledge.
    It is widely known that the CIA uses the Promis software to routinely monitor stock trades as a possible warning sign of a terrorist attack or suspicious economic behavior.
    A week after the Sept.11 attacks, the London Times reported that the CIA had asked regulators for the Financial Services Authority in London to investigate the suspicious sales of millions of shares of stock just prior to the terrorist acts.
    It was hoped the business paper trail might lead to the terrorists.
    Investigators from numerous government agencies are part of a clandestine but official effort to resolve the market manipulations.
    There has been a great deal of talk about insider trading of American stocks by certain Israeli groups both in Canada and Germany between August 26 and the Sept.11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
    Lynne Howard, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), stated that information about who made the trades was available immediately.
    "We would have been aware of any unusual activity right away.   It would have been triggered by any unusual volume.   There is an automated system called 'blue sheeting,' or the CBOE Market Surveillance System, that everyone in the business knows about.   It provides information on the trades - the name and even the Social Security number on an account - and these surveillance systems are set up specifically to look into insider trading.   The system would look at the volume, and then a real person would take over and review it, going back in time and looking at other unusual activity."
    > Howard continued, "The system is so smart that even if there is a news event that triggers a market event it can go back in time, and even the parameters can be changed depending on what is being looked at.   It's a very clever system and it is instantaneous.   Even with the system, though, we have very experienced and savvy staff in our market-regulations area who are always looking for things that might be unusual.   They're trained to put the pieces of the puzzle together.   Even if it's offshore, it might take a little longer, but all offshore accounts have to go through U.S. member firms - members of the CBOE - and it is easily and quickly identifiable who made the trades.   The member firm who made the trades has to have identifiable information about the client under the 'Know Your Customer' regulations (and we share all information with the Securities and Exchange Commission.)"
    Given all of this, at a minimum the CBOE and government regulators who are conducting the secret investigations have known for some time who made the options puts on a total of 38 stocks that might reasonably be anticipated to have a sharp drop in value because of an attack similar to the 9/11 episode.
    The silence from the investigating camps could mean several things: Either terrorists are responsible for the puts on the listed stocks or others besides terrorists had foreknowledge of the attack and used this knowledge to reap a nice financial harvest from the tragedy.
    Adam Hamilton of Zeal LLC, a North Dakota-based private consulting company that publishes research on markets worldwide, stated that "I heard that $22 million in profits was made on these put options..."
    Federal investigators are continuing to be so closed-mouthed about these stock trades, and it is clear that a much wider net has been cast, apparently looking for bigger international fish involved in dubious financial activity relating to the 9/11 attacks on the world stock markets.
    Just a month after the attacks the SEC sent out a list of stocks to various securities firms around the world looking for information.
    The list includes stocks of American, United, Continental, Northwest, Southwest and US Airways airlines, as well as Martin, Boeing, Lockheed Martin Corp., AIG, American Express Corp, American International Group, AMR Corporation, Axa SA, Bank of America Corp, Bank of New York Corp, Bank One Corp, Cigna Group, CNA Financial, Carnival Corp, Chubb Group, John Hancock Financial Services, Hercules Inc, L-3 Communications Holdings, Inc., LTV Corporation, Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc., MetLife, Progressive Corp., General Motors, Raytheon, W.R. Grace, Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd., Lone Star Technologies, American Express, the Citigroup Inc.,Royal & Sun Alliance, Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc., Vornado Reality Trust, Morgan Stanley, Dean Witter & Co., XL Capital Ltd., and Bear Stearns.
    The Times said market regulators in Germany, Japan and the US all had received information concerning the short selling of insurance, airlines and arms companies stock, all of which fell sharply in the wake of the attacks.
    City of London broker and analyst Richard Crossley noted that someone sold shares in unusually large quantities beginning three weeks before the assault on the WTC and Pentagon.
    He said he took this as evidence that someone had insider foreknowledge of the attacks.
    "What is more awful than he should aim a stiletto blow at the heart of Western financial markets?" he added.   "But to profit from it? Words fail me."
    The US Government also admitted it was investigating short selling, which evinced a compellingly strong foreknowledge of the coming Arab attack.
    There was unusually heavy trading in airline and insurance stocks several days before Sept.11, which essentially bet on a drop in the worth of the stocks.
    It was reported by the Interdisciplinary Center, a counter-terrorism think tank involving former Israeli intelligence officers, that insiders made nearly $16 million profit by short selling shares in American and United Airlines, the two airlines that suffered hijacking, and the investment firm of Morgan Stanley, which occupied 22 floors of the WTC.
    Apparently none of the suspicious transactions could be traced to bin Laden because this news item quietly dropped from sight, leaving many people wondering if it tracked back to American firms or intelligence agencies.
    Most of these transactions were handled primarily by Deutsche Bank-A.B.Brown, a firm which until 1998 was chaired by A. B."Buzzy" Krongard, who later became executive director of the CIA.
    More serious was an article in the Sept. 28, 2001 edition of the Washington Post stating that officials with the instant messaging firm of Odigo in New York confirmed that two employees in Israel received text messages warning of an attack on the WTC two hours before the planes crashed into the buildings!
    The firm's vice president of sales and marketing, Alex Diamandis said it was possible that the warning was sent to other Odigo members, but they had not received any reports of such.
    The day after, the Jerusalem Post claimed two Israelis died on the hijacked airplanes and that 4,000 were missing at the WTC.
    A week later, a Beirut television station reported that 4,000 Israeli employees of the WTC were absent the day of the attack.
    This information spread across the Internet but was quickly branded a hoax.
    On Sept. 19, the Washington Post reported about 113 Israelis were missing at the WTC and the next day, President Bush noted more than 130 Israelis were victims.
    Finally, on Sept. 22, the New York Times stated "There were, in fact, only three Israelis who had been confirmed as dead: two on the planes and another who had been visiting the towers on business and who was identified and buried."
    Investigators from numerous government agencies are part of a clandestine but official effort to resolve the market manipulations There has been a great deal of talk about the insider trading of American stocks by certain Israeli groups both in Canada and Germany between August 26 and the Sept.11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
    Government investigators have maintained a diplomatic silence about a Department of Justice (DOJ) probe of possible profiteering by interested parties with advance knowledge of the attack.
    On Sept. 6, 2001, the Thursday before the tragedy, 2,075 put options were made on United Airlines and on Sept. 10, the day before the attacks, 2,282 put options were recorded for American Airlines.
    Given the prices at the time, this could have yielded speculators between $2 million and $4 million in profit.
    The matter still is under investigation and none of the government investigating bodies - including the FBI, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and DOJ - are speaking to reporters about insider trading.
    Even so, suspicion of insider trading to profit from the Sept. 11 attacks is not limited to U.S. regulators.
    Investigations were initiated in a number of places including Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Luxembourg, Hong Kong, Switzerland and Spain.
    As in the United States, all are treating these inquiries as if they were state secrets.
    Sharon's screaming match with Shimon Peres
    On October 4, 2001, a report aired on Col Yisrael radio of a screaming match between Ariel Sharon and Foreign Minister (and former Prime Minister) Shimon Peres over the perceived decline of Israeli world status.
    "Don't worry about American pressure on Israel," Sharon reportedly yelled at Peres.   "We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."
    Peres wasn't sure how long that would prove to be true.
     
    Odigo says workers were warned of attack
    Yuval Dror
    Odigo, the instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, and the company has been cooperating with Israeli and American law enforcement, including the FBI, in trying to find the original sender of the message predicting the attack.
    Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company's management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI.
    "I have no idea why the message was sent to these two workers, who don't know the sender.   It may just have been someone who was joking and turned out they accidentally got it right.   And I don't know if our information was useful in any of the arrests the FBI has made," said Macover.
    Odigo is a U.S.-based company whose headquarters are in New York, with offices in Herzliya.
    As an instant messaging service, Odigo users are not limited to sending messages only to people on their "buddy" list, as is the case with ICQ, the other well-known Israeli instant messaging application.
    Odigo usually zealously protects the privacy of its registered users, said Macover, but in this case the company took the initiative to provide the law enforcement services with the originating Internet Presence address of the message, so the FBI could track down the Internet Service Provider, and the actual sender of the original message.

    CIA knew?
    There is no doubt that Mossad did have pretty detailed knowledge of a forthcoming attack on the US.
    The London Telegraph reported on Sept. 17 that Mossad officials actually flew to Washington in August to try to personally plead with the CIA and FBI to deal with a cell of 200 terrorists planning a major operation — but both agencies refused to listen.
    The Mossad officials specifically warned that "large-scale terrorist attacks on highly visible targets on the American mainland were imminent."
    While offering no specific target information, they pointed to Iraq and Osama bin Laden.
    A US official told the Telegraph that it was "quite credible" that the CIA did not heed the Mossad warning.   "It has a history of being over-cautious about Israeli information."   But he added that "if this is true, then the refusal to take it seriously will mean heads will roll."
    But of course they didn't.
    CIA "over-caution" stems from the Mossad too often crying wolf in order to get the US to do its dirty work for them.
    It would seem self-defeating for Mossad to tell the CIA in advance about such an attack if Mossad was itself involved, but Mossad could have been playing an extremely clever card, knowing its warning would be ignored, and thus covering its own butt by issuing the warning anyway.
    Sometimes the best way to keep a secret is to "hide" it right out in the open, where no one would think to look.
    There is always the possibility the CIA and Mossad may have even worked together to smooth the way for the New York attack, without having a direct hand in it.
    After all, the CIA supplied the explosives used in the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.
    That is confirmed by sworn court testimony from the CIA itself; its agents "didn't really believe the terrorist cell it had infiltrated would actually use the explosives."
    But they did, and so the CIA has to share the blame for 1,000 injuries and six deaths.

    Capital Crimes: Another Smoking Gun on Terror War Torture

    US continues its war on killing children
    US taxpayer killing and injuring of children continues
    From ABC:
    In dozens of top-secret talks and meetings in the White House, the most senior Bush administration officials discussed and approved specific details of how high-value al Qaeda suspects would be interrogated by the Central Intelligence Agency, sources tell ABC News....
    Highly placed sources said a handful of top advisers signed off on how the CIA would interrogate top al Qaeda suspects — whether they would be slapped, pushed, deprived of sleep or subjected to simulated drowning, called waterboarding.
    The high-level discussions about these "enhanced interrogation techniques" were so detailed, these sources said, some of the interrogation sessions were almost choreographed — down to the number of times CIA agents could use a specific tactic...
    At the time, the Principals Committee included
    Vice President Cheney
    Former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice
    Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
    Secretary of State Colin Powell
    CIA Director George Tenet
    Attorney General John Ashcroft.
    Piece of missile dropped on children
    Missile made and paid for by US taxpayers
    This is not just a smoking gun — it's a MOAB dropped right on the White House, confirming, yet again, what any sentient being should already know: the illegal torture tactics (yes, they are torture; and yes, they are illegal, no matter what "the Attorney General says") used on George W. Bush's Terror War captives were approved by the highest officials of the government, all of whom knew — in exacting, sickening detail — just what they were inflicting.
    These cold-blooded atrocities were not restricted to "high value al Qaeda suspects" — the demure fiction that the ABC report, like most others in the mainstream media that have begun, gingerly, to delve into these crimes, still retains. As mountains of evidence has already shown, these "enhanced interrogation techniques" were used throughout the Terror War prison system, from top to bottom:
    On prisoners rounded up at random in mass raids in Iraq and Afghanistan
    On innocent people sold into captivity by bounty hunters
    On innocent people snatched off the streets in Asia, Africa, Europe.
    They've been used on "low-level prisoners" in Bagram
    Diego Garcia
    Guantanamo Bay
    Abu Ghraib
    In the brig at the Naval Weapons Station in Charleston, South Carolina
    And all the other "secret prisons" and holding pens of the Terror War regime.
    Boy injured by US taxpayer
    Four people were killed
    12 people were wounded in the US missile attack
    All of the atrocities and murders that have thus far come to light from the hellish pit of the Bush gulag are the direct responsibility of the "Principals," the inner circle, the Privy Council, the Star Chamber of the real American government: the "National Security State" that operates outside all law, all oversight, all constitutional legitimacy.
    Yet even as the media digs out the workings of this junta, they feel compelled to offer what they believe is a fig leaf that will allow all good and decent folk to retain their sacred faith in American exceptionalism:
    "Hey, we're not evil; we only torture the really bad guys, the worst of the worst, the high value al Qaeda scum.
    "Torture's too good for the likes of them!"
    And the sad fact is, the media mandarins are right.
    American society has become so degenerate
    American society has become so degenerate that the majority of people — and the entirety of the American Establishment — will now countenance torture, as long as they can convince themselves it is used only against "the bad guys."
    At one time, the leaders of this nation condemned and punished the torture even of proven Nazis, on the principle that we must uphold our own humanity, and not descend to the brutish level of the most degraded among us.
    But no more.
    We are the degraded now.
    Ruled by brutes
    By deliberate torturers
    Military aggressors
    Mass murderers who walk the streets freely
    Live in wealth and comfort
    Receive public honors
    Will never face justice
    Never have to answer for their crimes against humanity.
    If this were not so, these evil counsellors and their leader would already be subjected to the workings of the law:
    Child wounded by US attack
    April 7, 2008
    All killed and injured responsibility of US taxpayer
    Impeachment proceedings
    Criminal investigations
    Arrest
    Trial.
    The fact that they are not is yet another crime — a crime in which the entire political establishment is deeply complicit.

    Or you can hang back with the brutes
    On Sept. 6, 2001, the Thursday before the tragedy, 2,075 put options were made on United Airlines and on Sept. 10, the day before the attacks, 2,282 put options were recorded for American Airlines.
    Given the prices at the time, this could have yielded speculators between $2 million and $4 million in profit.

    SUPPRESSED DETAILS OF CRIMINAL INSIDER TRADING
    LEAD DIRECTLY INTO THE CIA'S HIGHEST RANKS

    CIA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR "BUZZY" KRONGARD
    MANAGED FIRM THAT HANDLED "PUT" OPTIONS ON UAL
    by Michael C. Ruppert
    FTW, October 9, 2001 — Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
    In the case of at least one of these trades — which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed — the firm used to place the "put options" on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency.
    Until 1997 A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown.
    A.B. Brown was acquired by Banker's Trust in 1997.
    Krongard then became, as part of the merger, Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust — AB Brown, one of 20 major U.S. banks named by Senator Carl Levin this year as being connected to money laundering.
    Krongard's last position at Banker's Trust (BT) was to oversee "private client relations".
    In this capacity he had direct hands-on relations with some of the wealthiest people in the world in a kind of specialized banking operation that has been identified by the U.S. Senate and other investigators as being closely connected to the laundering of drug money.
    Krongard (re?) joined the CIA in 1998 as counsel to CIA Director George Tenet.
    He was promoted to CIA Executive Director by President Bush in March of this year.
    BT was acquired by Deutsche Bank in 1999.
    The combined firm is the single largest bank in Europe.
    And, as we shall see, Deutsche Bank played several key roles in events connected to the September 11 attacks.
    THE SCOPE OF KNOWN INSIDER TRADING
    Before looking further into these relationships it is necessary to look at the insider trading information that is being ignored by Reuters, The New York Times and other mass media.
    It is well documented that the CIA has long monitored such trades — in real time — as potential warnings of terrorist attacks and other economic moves contrary to U.S. interests.   Previous stories in FTW have specifically highlighted the use of Promis software to monitor such trades.
    It is necessary to understand only two key financial terms to understand the significance of these trades, "selling short" and "put options".
    "Selling Short" is the borrowing of stock, selling it at current market prices, but not being required to actually produce the stock for some time.   If the stock falls precipitously after the short contract is entered, the seller can then fulfill the contract by buying the stock after the price has fallen and complete the contract at the pre-crash price.   These contracts often have a window of as long as four months.
    "Put Options" are contracts giving the buyer the option to sell stocks at a later date.   Purchased at nominal prices of, for example, $1.00 per share, they are sold in blocks of 100 shares.   If exercised, they give the holder the option of selling selected stocks at a future date at a price set when the contract is issued.
    Thus, for an investment of $10,000 it might be possible to tie up 10,000 shares of United or American Airlines at $100 per share, and the seller of the option is then obligated to buy them if the option is executed.
    If the stock has fallen to $50 when the contract matures, the holder of the option can purchase the shares for $50 and immediately sell them for $100 — regardless of where the market then stands.
    A call option is the reverse of a put option, which is, in effect, a derivatives bet that the stock price will go up.
    A September 21 story by the Israeli Herzliyya International Policy Institute for Counter terrorism, entitled "Black Tuesday: The World's Largest Insider Trading Scam?" documented the following trades connected to the September 11 attacks:
    — Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board Options Exchange saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options.
    Assuming that 4,000 of the options were bought by people with advance knowledge of the imminent attacks, these "insiders" would have profited by almost $5 million.
    — On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on the Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls.
    Again, there was no news at that point to justify this imbalance; Again, assuming that 4,000 of these options trades represent "insiders", they would represent a gain of about $4 million.
    — [The levels of put options purchased above were more than six times higher than normal.]
    — No similar trading in other airlines occurred on the Chicago exchange in the days immediately preceding Black Tuesday.
    — Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co., which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade Center, saw 2,157 of its October $45 put options bought in the three trading days before Black Tuesday; this compares to an average of 27 contracts per day before September 6.
    Morgan Stanley's share price fell from $48.90 to $42.50 in the aftermath of the attacks.
    Assuming that 2,000 of these options contracts were bought based upon knowledge of the approaching attacks, their purchasers could have profited by at least $1.2 million.
    — Merrill Lynch & Co., which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade Center, saw 12,215 October $45 put options bought in the four trading days before the attacks; the previous average volume in those shares had been 252 contracts per day [a 1200% increase!].
    When trading resumed, Merrill's shares fell from $46.88 to $41.50; assuming that 11,000 option contracts were bought by "insiders", their profit would have been about $5.5 million.
    — European regulators are examining trades in Germany's Munich Re, Switzerland's Swiss Re, and AXA of France, all major reinsurers with exposure to the Black Tuesday disaster.   [FTW Note: AXA also owns more than 25% of American Airlines stock making the attacks a "double whammy" for them.]
    On September 29, 2001 — in a vital story that has gone unnoticed by the major media — the San Francisco Chronicle reported, "Investors have yet to collect more than $2.5 million in profits they made trading options in the stock of United Airlines before the Sept. 11, terrorist attacks, according to a source familiar with the trades and market data".
    "The uncollected money raises suspicions that the investors — whose identities and nationalities have not been made public — had advance knowledge of the strikes".   They don't dare show up now.   The suspension of trading for four days after the attacks made it impossible to cash-out quickly and claim the prize before investigators started looking.
    "October series options for UAL Corp.   were purchased in highly unusual volumes three trading days before the terrorist attacks for a total outlay of $2,070; investors bought the option contracts, each representing 100 shares, for 90 cents each.   [This represents 230,000 shares].
    Those options are now selling at more than $12 each.
    There are still 2,313 so-called "put" options outstanding [valued at $2.77 million and representing 231,300 shares] according to the Options Clearinghouse Corp".
    "The source familiar with the United trades identified Deutsche Bank Alex — Alex Brown, the American investment banking arm of German giant Deutsche Bank, as the investment bank used to purchase at least some of these options"   This was the operation managed by Krongard until as recently as 1998.
    As reported in other news stories, Deutsche Bank was also the hub of insider trading activity connected to Munich Re. just before the attacks.
    On this particular night the crowd looked promising.   I introduced myself to two women there, and after a short while, one of the women told me she worked for the CBOE.   The CBOE is the Chicago Board Options Exchange.   It is the exchange that handles trading in, among other things, stock options.
    I half-jokingly asked her, "Whatever happened to the CBOE investigation of all the profits made by those who bought put options on airlines stocks before 9-11?" (You make money on put options when a stock goes down in price.)
    Her answered floored me.   She said, "It probably would have been easy for us to find out who was behind the trades, but the government came in and told the CBOE president to stop the investigation."
    Just to make sure I heard her right, I said to her, "The government came in and told the CBOE president not to investigate?" She said, "Yeah, it was really strange."
    The conversation changed for a minute, but I wanted to get back to the government not wanting an investigation.   I said to her again, a third time, making sure I heard right, "The government didn't want you to investigate?" She looked at me said "Yes, that's right."
    Then she looked at me a little longer, she knew I had interest in this topic, she looked a little nervous and then blurted out to me, "We erased the data.   Our data on the trades is gone."   [

    CIA, THE BANKS AND THE BROKERS
    Understanding the interrelationships between CIA and the banking and brokerage world is critical to grasping the already frightening implications of the above revelations.   Let's look at the history of CIA, Wall Street and the big banks by looking at some of the key players in CIA's history.
    Clark Clifford — The National Security Act of 1947 was written by Clark Clifford, a Democratic Party powerhouse, former Secretary of Defense, and one-time advisor to President Harry Truman.
    In the 1980s, as Chairman of First American Bancshares, Clifford was instrumental in getting the corrupt CIA drug bank BCCI a license to operate on American shores.   His profession: Wall Street lawyer and banker.
    John Foster and Allen Dulles — These two brothers "designed" the CIA for Clifford.   Both were active in intelligence operations during WW II.
    Allen Dulles was the U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland where he met frequently with Nazi leaders and looked after U.S. investments in Germany.
    John Foster went on to become Secretary of State under Dwight Eisenhower and Allen went on to serve as CIA Director under Eisenhower and was later fired by JFK.   Their professions: partners in the most powerful — to this day — Wall Street law firm of Sullivan, Cromwell.
    Bill Casey — Ronald Reagan's CIA Director and OSS veteran who served as chief wrangler during the Iran-Contra years was, under President Richard Nixon, Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   His profession: Wall Street lawyer and stockbroker.
    David Doherty — The current Vice President of the New York Stock Exchange for enforcement is the retired General Counsel of the Central Intelligence Agency.
    George Herbert Walker Bush — President from 1989 to January 1993, also served as CIA Director for 13 months from 1976-7.   He is now a paid consultant to the Carlyle Group, the 11th largest defense contractor in the nation, which also shares joint investments with the bin Laden family.
    A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard — The current Executive Director of the Central Intelligence Agency is the former Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown and former Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust.
    John Deutch — This retired CIA Director from the Clinton Administration currently sits on the board at Citigroup, the nation's second largest bank, which has been repeatedly and overtly involved in the documented laundering of drug money.   This includes Citigroup's 2001 purchase of a Mexican bank known to launder drug money, Banamex.
    Nora Slatkin — This retired CIA Executive Director also sits on Citibank's board.
    Maurice "Hank" Greenburg — The CEO of AIG insurance, manager of the third largest capital investment pool in the world, was floated as a possible CIA Director in 1995.
    FTW exposed Greenberg's and AIG's long connection to CIA drug trafficking and covert operations in a two-part series that was interrupted just prior to the attacks of September 11.
    AIG's stock has bounced back remarkably well since the attacks.

    ESTIMATED NUCLEAR WARHEADS, STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL
    Map showing declared, suspected and potential nuclear nations.

The US is also said to have some 3,000 warheads in reserve, while Russia has about 11,000 in non-operational stockpiles.

Israel declines to confirm it has nuclear weapons.

North Korea — 1 test underground, October 2006.

Iran is accused by the US of ambitions to build nuclear arms.

The United states had drawn up a battle plan for the potential use of nuclear weapons in Iraq and the United States has been involved in planning potential nuclear use scenarios for Iran.

The United States is now involved in a massive program to overhaul its nuclear arsenal.

In fact they're working to replace every nuclear warhead and all of the existing delivery systems in the arsenal to ensure prompt precision global strike capabilities.

    Danish scientist Niels Harrit interview on Danish TV2 on nano-thermite in the WTC dust.

911 Controlled Demolition - Thermite - Nano Thermite - Iron Microspheres Confirm Unexplained Extreme Temperatures.

2,606 people lost their lives in the World Trade Center buildings on September 11, 2001.

125 people lost their lives at the Pentagon on 9/11.

246 people lost their lives on the four planes on 9/11.

    Danish scientist Niels Harrit on nano-thermite in the WTC dust.

Niels Harrit, you and eight other researchers conclude in this article that it was nano-thermite that caused these buildings to collapse.

We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center.

One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a fourth about a week later.

The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).

The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.

The carbon content of the red material indicates that an organic substance is present.

This would be expected for super-thermite formulations in order to produce high gas pressures upon ignition and thus make them explosive.

    A new scientific article concludes that impacts from the two hijacked aircraft did not cause the collapses in 2001.
    We turn our attention to 9/11 — the major attack in New York.
    Apparently the two airplane-impacts did not cause the towers to collapse, according to a newly published scientific article.
    Researchers found nano-thermite explosive in the rubble, that cannot have come from the planes.
    They believe several tonnes of explosives were placed in the buildings in advance.
    Niels Harrit, you and eight other researchers conclude in this article, that it was nano-thermite that caused these buildings to collapse. What is nano-thermite?
    Niels Harrit   We found nano-thermite in the rubble.
    We are not saying only nano-thermite was used.
    Thermite itself dates back to 1893.
    It is a mixture of aluminum and rust-powder, which react to create intense heat.
    The reaction produces iron, heated to 2500 °C.
    This can be used to do welding.   It can also be used to melt other iron.
    Nanotechnology makes things smaller.   So in nano-thermite, this powder from 1893 is reduced to tiny particles, perfectly mixed.
    When these react, the intense heat develops much more quickly.
    Nano-thermite can be mixed with additives to give off intense heat, or serve as a very effective explosive.
    It contains more energy than dynamite, and can be used as rocket fuel.
    Danish TV2   I Googled nano-thermite, and not much has been written about it.   Is it a widely known scientific substance?   Or is it so new that other scientists are hardly aware of it?
    Niels Harrit   It is a collective name for substances with high levels of energy.
    If civilian researchers (like myself) are not familiar with it, it is probably because they do not do much work with explosives.
    As for military scientists, you would have to ask them.
    I do not know how familiar they are with nanotechnology.
    Danish TV2   So you found this substance in the WTC, why do you think it caused the collapses?
    Niels Harrit   Well, it's an explosive.   Why else would it be there?
    Danish TV2   You believe the intense heat melted the building?s steel support structure, and caused the building to collapse like a house of cards?
    Niels Harrit   I cannot say precisely, as this substance can serve both purposes.
    It can explode and break things apart, and it can melt things.
    Both effects were probably used, as I see it.
    Molten metal pours out of the South Tower several minutes before the collapse.
    This indicates the whole structure was being weakened in advance.
    Then the regular explosives come into play.
    The actual collapse sequence had to be perfectly timed, all the way down.
    Danish TV2   What quantities are we talking about?
    Niels Harrit   A lot.   There were only two planes, but three skyscrapers collapsed.
    We know roughly how much dust was created.
    The pictures show huge quantities, everything but the steel was pulverised.
    And we know roughly how much unreacted thermite we have found.

    This is the “loaded gun”, material that did not ignite for some reason.
    We are talking about tonnes.   Over 10 tonnes, possibly 100 tonnes.
    Danish TV2   Ten tonnes, possibly 100 tonnes, in three buildings?   And these substances are not normally found in such buildings?
    Niels Harrit   No.   These materials are extremely advanced.
    Danish TV2   How do you place such material in a skyscraper, on all the floors?
    Niels Harrit   How you would get it in?
    Danish TV2   Yes.
    Niels Harrit   If I had to transport it in those quantities I would use pallets.   Get a truck and move it in on pallets.
    Danish TV2   Why hasn't this been discovered earlier?
    Niels Harrit   By whom?
    Danish TV2   The caretakers, for example.     If you are moving 10 to 100 tonnes of nano-thermite around, and placing it on all the floors.     I am just surprised no-one noticed.
    Niels Harrit   As a journalist, you should address that question to the company responsible for security at the WTC.
    Danish TV2   So you are in no doubt the material was present?
    Niels Harrit   You cannot fudge this kind of science.
    We have found it.   Unreacted thermite.
    Danish TV2   What responses has your article received around the world?
    Niels Harrit   It is completely new knowledge for me.
    It was only published last Friday.   So it is too early to say.
    But the article may not be as groundbreaking as you think.
    Hundreds of thousands of people around the world, have long known that the three buildings were demolished.

    This has been crystal clear.
    Our research is just the last nail in the coffin.
    This is not the 'smoking gun', it is the 'loaded gun'.
    Each day, thousands of people realise that the WTC was demolished.
    That is something unstoppable.
    Danish TV2   Why has no-one discovered earlier that there was nano-thermite in the buildings?   Almost ten years have passed.
    Niels Harrit   You mean in the dust?
    Danish TV2   Yes.
    Niels Harrit   It was by chance that someone looked at the dust with a microscope.
    They are tiny red chips.
    The biggest are 1 mm in size, and can be seen with the naked eye.
    But you need a microscope to see the vast majority.
    It was by chance that someone discovered them two years ago.
    Danish TV2   It has taken 18 months to prepare the scientific article you refer to.
    Niels Harrit   It is a very comprehensive article based on thorough research.
    Danish TV2   You have been working on this for several years, because it didn't make sense to you.
    Niels Harrit   Yes, over two years actually.
    It all started when I saw the collapse of Building 7, the third skyscraper.
    It collapsed seven hours after the twin towers.
    And there were only two airplanes.
    When you see a 47-storey building, 186m tall, collapse in 6.5 seconds, and you are a scientist, you think “what?”.
    I had to watch it again… and again.
    I hit the button 10 times, and my jaw dropped lower and lower.
    Firstly, I had never heard of that building before.
    And there was no visible reason why it should collapse in that way, straight down, in 6.5 seconds.
    I have had no rest since that day.
    Danish TV2   Ever since 9/11 there has been speculation, and conspiracy theories.   What do you say to viewers who hear about your research and say, “we?ve heard it all before, there are lots of conspiracy theories”.   What would you say to convince them that this is different?
    Niels Harrit   I think there is only one conspiracy theory worth mentioning, the one involving 19 hijackers.
    I think viewers should ask themselves what evidence they have seen to support the official conspiracy theory.
    If anyone has seen evidence, I would like to hear about it
    No-one has been formally charged.   No-one is 'wanted'.
    Our work should lead to demands for a proper criminal investigation of the 9/11 terrorist attack.
    Because it never happened.   We are still waiting for it.
    We hope our results will be used as technical evidence when that day comes.
    Danish TV2   Niels Harrit, fascinating, thanks for coming in.
    Niels Harrit   My pleasure
    ITALIAN SAYS 9-11 SOLVED
    It’s common knowledge, he reveals
    CIA — Mossad behind terror attacks
    By the Staff of American Free Press
    Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, has told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.
    In what translates awkwardly into English, Cossiga told the newspaper Corriere della Sera:
    “All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe… know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part … in Iraq [and] Afghanistan.”
    Cossiga was elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of the country in 1985, and he remained until 1992.
    Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio.
    This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and ’80s.
    Gladio’s specialty was to carry out what they termed 'false flag' operations — terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.
    In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony:
    “You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game.
    The reason was quite simple: to force … the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”
    Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcher Webster Tarpley saying:
    “The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel.
    I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel.”
    Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga’s assertion that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge among global intelligence agencies is illuminating.
    It is one more eye-opening confirmation that has not been mentioned by America’s propaganda machine in print or on TV.
    Nevertheless, because of his experience and status in the world, Cossiga cannot be discounted as a crackpot.

    We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center.

One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a fourth about a week later.

The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).

The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.

The carbon content of the red material indicates that an organic substance is present.

This would be expected for super-thermite formulations in order to produce high gas pressures upon ignition and thus make them explosive.

    US to Develop New Hydrogen Bomb
    by Ralph Vartabedian
    The Energy Department will announce today a contract to develop the nation's first new hydrogen bomb in two decades, involving a collaboration between three national weapons laboratories, The Times has learned.
    The new bomb will include design features from all three labs, though Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Bay Area appears to have taken the lead position in the project. The Los Alamos and Sandia labs in New Mexico will also be part of the project.

    UK jets 'chase Russian bombers'

    Norway says Russia has increased military flights in the Arctic
    The UK's Royal Air Force has launched fighter jets to intercept eight Russian military planes flying in airspace patrolled by Nato, UK officials say.
    Four RAF F3 Tornado aircraft were scrambled in response to the Russian action, the UK's defence ministry said.
    The Russian planes - said to be long-range bombers - had earlier been followed by Norwegian F16 jets.
    Russia recently revived a Cold War-era practice of flying bombers on long-range patrols.
    A Norwegian officer, Lt Col John Inge Oegland, told the BBC the Russian Tupolev Tu-95 Bear bombers flew in international airspace from the Barents Sea to the Atlantic, before turning back.
    Two Norwegian F-16s shadowed them on Thursday morning and another two went up later, he said.
    There have been several similar incidents in recent months, Lt-Col Oegland added.
    "Norway is following the increased Russian activity in the far north with interest," he told the BBC News website.
    He said the Russian flights were not causing alarm in Norway.   "Our systems are adequate," he said, when asked whether Norway was bolstering its security in the area.

    ... Hey!   Not only are these safe as houses, but they are insured.   What could possibly go wrong!
    This is the Triple B, Triple A, Single A jargon that you hear talked about.   The ratings like Moody's, Standard & Poor's, Fitch are the ones who give the ratings.   Part of the reason they give the Triple A rating is because it is a Municipal Bond which is safe and insured....
    Now here is the problem — if the insurers crumble then that [Triple A for Municipal Bonds] rating might go away.   It is inherently risker now to hold such an investment.
    Triple A is supposed to be as safe as Government Treasuries.   In order for the Government Treasuries to not pay it would have to be Mad Max time.   So Triple A is top level, equal to Government Securities unless the country [and Western world economic system — Kewe TheWE.cc] collapses.
    Insurance companies are clearly not as safe as Triple A Treasuries.   We all know this.   But they [these insurance companies] are not getting downgraded.   Why are they not getting downgraded?   Because it will create a cascade failure.
    If the insurance companies [insuring Municipal Bonds] loose their Triple A rating... Municipal Bonds that these insurance companies insured will loose their Triple A rating.
    That's when it gets really bad because standing orders in many Trading Houses say if its Triple A then buy it, if it's not Triple A we can not hold it and we have to sell it.   'Because I have a pension fund and I need to take care of old grandmas.'
    ... Now what happens?   Well, Trading Houses have invested a bunch of money into a security that is no longer Triple A.   They are forced to sell.
    If insurance companies [insuring Municipal Bonds] get downgraded, Municipal Bonds are no longer as safe as they once were and stand to be downgraded.   This means that a whole bunch of institutions that hold them will be forced to sell them, by policy.   That would be a collapse in the funding that allows municipalities to build hospitals and fire stations... and schools and everything else.
    Everyone realizes this and they try to protect Municipal Bonds at all cost.
    Hedge Funds are getting margin calls for whom their credit has disappeared — the people who loaned the credit wanting their money back because not only [have Hedge Funds bought] Municipal Bonds but more speculative things such as Sub Prime.
    Hedge Funds are taking losses...   big losses.   They are getting margin calls and so they are going to have to sell good things to get money to pay for their margin calls.   What Hedge Funds have chosen to sell — Municipal Bonds.   [the only thing they have that's worth anything — Kewe TheWE.cc]
    ...   Municipal Bonds are trading today twenty to forty times the normal volume.
    [Now in addition] The cops have finally shown up!
    ... The Municipal Derivative Business is under probe as to anti-trust.   US Prosecutors and the Securities and Exchange Commission have been searching for more than a year for evidence of rigged bidding and other misconduct by banks that sell Investments and Derivatives such as Interest Rate Swaps tied to Municipal Bonds...   Lawyers in the Municipal Bonds industry say the criminal probe is the biggest in the history of the almost two-hundred year old market.
    States, Cities and Towns have 2.6 Trillion dollars of debt outstanding....
    Transactions as far back as 1992 are under investigation.
    ... Banks lend to each other.   Banks have Capital Requirements — You have to have a certain amount of money in your vaults, of cash — If I give my bank ten dollars, they can take nine dollars of that and lend it out.
    ... Think of how many times these loans get resold.   It's the fact that [now] the loan packages are not going to be sold to anyone else.   A loan [has been] put out and this gets bought by someone else and that becomes collateral for another loan on the inside of the banking system, and that may in fact turn into something else entirely.
    This same collateral [for a house] has been used on multiple loans so that one house could turn into [pseudo ten or a hundred houses] because these [subsequent] loans have been made safe by the Insurance Companies.
    This is what we call leverage.   It's great on the way up.   It's awful on the way down.
    ... It's a complete smoke and mirrors game.   The economics is how I feel.   ... The Fed Rate Cut is purely a psychological attack if you will on our Bear Mind to make us think, 'Oh Yeah! Buy Again!'
    It's also a failure of them [the Feds] to defend the current rate.
    This is a double layered lie in that it is psychological in nature, also completely false in that the Fed does not actually Cut a Rate.   The Market does.   The Fed simply announces data.   They fool everyone in to thinking they are setting the rate.
    The Fed's real power is jawboning.   They have some ability to 'Inject Liquidity' which means they are 'Selling Debt' ...   The Fed rarely does Permanent Loans.   It much more does Temporary Loans which have to be paid back within 30 and 90 days.
    That loan has interest attached to it.
    ... Sub Prime losses are thought to be in the 400 to 600 Billion dollar range.   That does not account for Municipal or Corporate Debt Losses.
    You have that money vanishing.   You have 2 Trillion vanishing.   You have all the products that could have been made off that 2 Trillion leveraged vanishing.
    This is very heavily Deflationary.
    Both Inflationary and Deflationary pressures are occurring right now.   For instance Gold is going up, Oil is going up.   This is Price Inflation.   This is Monetary Origination Deflation.   Total dollars in the system vanishing.
    If our 'Shadowy Masters' wanted to destroy this country it would be done by Deflation.
    [Deflation for high ticket items so the rich elite with money get to buy homes, stocks cheaper, inflation for food, transportation and anything to do with oil, for us poor folks to pay them, adding to their wealth

    Justice O'Connor's decision in Bush v. Gore led to the current Bush administration's execution of war crimes and atrocities in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places in the Middle East that are as egregious as those committed by the Third Reich and other evil governments in human history.
    US destroyed Fallujah as it tries to destroy the rest of Iraq
    The lesson is clear.
    Those people who may be honorable and distinguished in their chosen profession should always make decisions based upon good rather than evil no matter where their nominal allegiances may rest.
    Justice O'Connor was quoted to have said something to the affect that she abhorred the thought of Bush losing the 2000 election to Gore.
    She was known to have wanted to retire after the 2000 election for same reason she is now retiring.
    She wanted to spend more time with her sick husband.
    Unfortunately, she tarnished her distinguished career with the deciding vote in Bush v. Gore by going along with the partisan majority of the Court to interfere with a democratic election that she and the majority feared would be lost in an honest recount.
    She dishonored herself and the Supreme Court by succumbing to party allegiances and not The Constitution to which she swore to uphold.
    And the constitutional argument she and the majority used to justify their decision was the Equal Protection Clause.
    The Equal Protection Clause was the ultimate basis for the decision, but the majority essentially admitted (what was obvious in any event) that it was not basing its conclusion on any general view of what equal protection requires.
    The decision in Bush v Gore was not dictated by the law in any sense—either the law found through research, or the law as reflected in the kind of intuitive sense that comes from immersion in the legal culture.
    The Equal Protection clause is generally used in matters concerning civil rights.
    The majority ignored their basic conservative views supporting federalism and states' rights in order to justify their decision.
    History will haunt these justices down for their utter lack of justice and the hypocrisy associated with this decision.
