Icarus (Armed with Vipers) Over Iraq
The Old City of Najaf that abuts the holy Shrine of Imam Ali was largely destroyed in August, partially from the air in the midst of bitter fighting between American troops and relatively lightly armed, ill-trained but tenacious young Shiite men loyal to the radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr.
("Few in the shrine could sleep through the ominous rumble of American AC-130 Specter gunships, capable of firing 1,800 bullets per minute.
When the bombs fell closer than ever, hundreds rose to march and chant in the courtyard, saying they hoped their voices boosted the morale of the Mahdi Army.")
In one of our last acts before a cease fire was declared, according to Dexter Filkins of the New York Times, we used "a 2,000-pound, laser-guided bomb to strike a hotel about 130 yards away from the shrine's southwest wall, in an area known to American commanders as ‘motel row…'
Reports indicated the hotel was a redoubt for al-Sadr fighters…
The official said the strike had been ‘100 per cent successful,’ demolishing the hotel."

Dropping Democracy
Filkins later described the post-truce moment this way: "[The rebels] stood in a scene of devastation.
Hotels had crumbled into the street.
Cars were blackened and twisted where they had been hit.
Goats and donkeys lay dead on the sidewalks.
Pilgrims from out of town and locals coming from home walked the streets agape, shaking their heads, stunned by the devastation before them."
Similarly, much of the city of Falluja has just been devastated in fighting in which American fire power of every sort was called in.
The razing of that city began with weeks of "targeted" air attacks on what were termed insurgent "safe havens."
Falluja is now a wasteland and, while fantasies about its reconstruction abound, the fighting only continues.
(At least 20 U.S. troops have died there, to almost no press attention, since the city was declared secure and the operation deemed a "success.")
Falluja remains cordoned off; up to 250,000 Fallujan refugees are still unable to return; and American military strategists, who over the months since the first failed Marine attempt to take the city in April planned its eventual destruction, are now evidently planning to "ask" the "head of every household" (read: males) "to wear an identification badge" once back in the city.
But if the Old City of Najaf (evidently still largely unreconstructed) and the whole city of Falluja are now memorials to American fire power and an American willingness to call down retribution from the skies, air power has been used far more widely across much of heavily populated urban Iraq without any press comment whatsoever, on or off editorial pages.
Let me offer just a few examples from many to give a sense of the range of Iraqi cities hit from the air in recent months:
Baqubah: "Some 30 insurgents were stationed in buildings near the stadium in eastern Baqubah, apparently to obstruct US forces from reaching downtown.
Rather than clear the buildings — two vacant schools and a swimming pool — Colonel Pittard decided to demolish them with four 500-lb. bombs"   (the Christian Science Monitor, July 21)
Tall Afar: "Soldiers from the 3rd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, also known as the Stryker Brigade, launched a fierce attack on Tall Afar on Thursday…
The fighting, which included three airstrikes involving AC-130 gunships and F-16 fighter jets, killed 67 insurgents, according to the U.S. military." (the Washington Post, Sept. 12)
Sadr City, Baghdad: "Hospital officials in Sadr City, a vast slum in northeast Baghdad that is overwhelmingly hostile to the American occupation, said one person had been killed in an overnight airstrike by the Americans.
For weeks, the military has been deploying an AC-130 gunship and fighter jets over the area to try to rout the Mahdi Army, a militia loyal to the firebrand Shiite cleric Moktada al-Sadr." (the New York Times, Oct. 6)
Kut: "A U.S. helicopter struck Sadr's office in Kut, killing two people..." (the Washington Post, April 9)
Samarra: "By U.S. military estimates, about 125 rebels were killed and more than 80 captured.
Most of the deaths occurred early Friday in the first hours of the strike, when U.S. helicopter gunships blasted suspected rebel positions with rocket fire." (the Los Angeles Times, October 4 [scroll down])
Mosul: "A semblance of calm has returned to Mosul after U.S. forces carried out air strikes on iraq resistance forces, but residents say Iraq's third
U.S. war planes struck rebel areas in the southwest of the city late on Thursday after two days of widespread violence in which groups of insurgents rampaged, burning police stations, stealing weapons and tipping the city towards chaos." (Reuters, Nov. 12)
Karbala: "American AC-130 gunships and tanks battled militiamen near shrines in this Shiite holy city Friday." (the Associated Press, May 21)
          
Falluja women, children in mass grave
Sunday 21 November 2004
 
Many corpses remain unburied, Falluja residents say
Residents of a village neighbouring Falluja have told Aljazeera that they helped bury the bodies of 73 women and children who were burnt to death by a US bombing attack.
"We buried them here, but we could not identify them because they were charred by the use of napalm bombs used by the Americans," said one resident of Saqlawiya in footage aired on Aljazeera on Sunday.
There have been no reports of the US military using napalm in Falluja and no independent verification of the claims.
The resident told Aljazeera all the bodies were buried in a single grave.
Late last week, US troops in Falluja called on some residents who had fled the fighting to return and help bury the dead.
However, according to other residents who managed to flee the fighting after US forces entered the city, hundreds more bodies still lay in the streets and were being fed on by packs of wild dogs.
Danger zone
Meanwhile, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said Falluja remained too dangerous to secure proper retrieval and burial of corpses.
Depleted uranium has caused severe deformities in babies
 
"We could not enter Falluja city so far due to the security measures and the continuing battles," Muain Qasis, ICRC spokesman in Jordan, told Aljazeera.
When asked about the security measures, Qasis said: "In order to carry out an independent and acceptable humanitarian action, we must have guarantees ensuring the safety of the humanitarian staff.
"The humanitarian situation in Falluja city is very difficult.
"The city is still suffering shortage of public services. There is no water or electricity. There is no way to offer medical treatment for the injured families still surrounded inside the city," he added.
Detained civilians released
In related news, the US military in Falluja announced that it had released 400 of the 1450 men it had detained in the war-ravaged city.
"More than 400 detainees have since been released after being deemed non-combatants," the military said, adding that 100 more were due to be released on Sunday.

73 charred bodies — women and children — were found
by GIULIANA SGRENA
We buried them, but we could not identify them because they were charred from the napalm bombs used by the Americans.
People from Saqlawiya village, near Falluja, told al Jazeera television, based in Qatar, that they helped bury 73 bodies of women and children completely charred, all in the same grave.
The sad story of common graves, which started at Saddam’s times, is not yet finished.
Nobody could confirm if napalm bombs have been used in Falluja, but other bodies found last year after the fierce battle at Baghdad airport were also completely charred and some thought of nuclear bombs.
No independent source could verify the facts, since all the news arrived until now are those spread by journalists embedded with the American troops, who would only allow British and American media to enrol with them.
But the villagers who fled in the last few days spoke of many bodies which had not been buried: it was too dangerous to collect the corpses during the battle.

Falluja: "Highly accurate, 500-pound bombs called JDAMs — Joint Direct Attack Munition — were dropped on suspected insurgent hideouts overnight in the southern sector of the city, military sources said.
The U.S. Air Force also used AC-130 Spectre gunships, armed with 105 mm cannons and 40 mm guns, to blast remaining insurgent pockets." (CNN, Nov. 16)
Hiyt: "...near the town of Hiyt...[a]ir strikes were called in on the mosque position.
The mosque is partially damaged and is currently on fire…" (Aljazeera, Oct. 12)
Baghdad Airport (and elsewhere):
"US forces struck at targets near Baghdad airport on Friday evening while attack helicopters and F-16 fighter jets carried out raids elsewhere in Iraq in operations against resistance fighters...
Earlier, a US helicopter gunship killed seven people allegedly preparing to launch rocket attacks on an American military base in Iraq." (Aljazeera, Nov. 16)
Towns south of Baghdad: "More than 5000 men supported by Cobra helicopters, F-18 hornets and F-16s, will launch raids in and around the so-called Triangle of Death south of Baghdad." (the Scotsman, Nov. 24)
This far-from-exhaustive list is taken from the summary press reports on the war that appear almost daily.
Normally, only a few lines, as above, are devoted to the air war against urban areas which is, by the nature of the situation, a war of terror.

Only the Dead Have Seen the End of War
Their numbers grow.
Their cause gains worldwide support.
The moral high ground is indisputably theirs.
It is they fighting for freedom and liberty.
Not for corporate profit and oil.
And to hide the ineptitude of the Bush administration.
The illegality of the Iraq invasion and subsequent occupation cannot be denied.
It was orchestrated based on lies and deceits.
For no reason other than for corporate profit.
A sovereign nation.
A threat to no other.
Crippled by a decade of sanctions.
And US imposed economic genocide.
Was invaded by the forces of greed and the Almighty Dollar.
This illegal war.
Against all principles of universal precepts of human interaction.
Mandated by warmongers.
Greed-mongers.
Profiteers.
And exploiters of human misery.
Is akin to Hitler's invasions.
While the entire world watched.
Aimlessly and indifferent.
Before he invaded again.
And again.
And again.
With Iran clearly next in the scope for Bush, Israel and the lunatic neocons.
Humanity is one step closer to repeating the mistakes of the past.
This time with most ominous consequences.

US forces step up Iraq airstrikes
Sarah Baxter, Washington, Ali Rifat, Baghdad and Peter Almond
AMERICAN forces are dramatically stepping up air attacks on insurgents in Iraq as they prepare to start the withdrawal of ground troops in the spring.
The number of airstrikes in 2005, running at a monthly average of 25 until August, surged to 120 in November and an expected 150 in December, according to official military figures.
The tempo looks set to increase this year as the Americans pull back from urban combat, leaving street fighting increasingly to Iraqi forces supported by US air power.
“The bottom line will be that as the Iraqi army and police gain in competence, they will be able to take on more and more of the territory,” said General Peter Pace, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, announcing a cut in troop numbers from 160,000 to fewer than 138,000 by March.
The intensification in the air war comes as Iraqi politicians struggle in the aftermath of last month’s elections to put together a coalition government that will satisfy the disaffected Sunni minority, which ran Iraq under Saddam Hussein.
“We are insisting on a national unity government,” said Adel Abdel Mahdi, a leading member of the Shi’ite United Iraqi Alliance, the likely election winner.
The Sunni bloc, allied to the secular party of Iyad Allawi, the former prime minister, has been secretly discussing the terms of a possible political deal with insurgent groups.
But those groups’ leaders have a long list of demands, chief of which is a timetable for American withdrawal as well as the release of prisoners, an effective rehabilitation of Saddam’s former ruling Ba’ath party and the disbanding of Shi’ite and Kurdish militias.
Insurgent sources said that they are also including Al-Qaeda in Iraq in their talks as its involvement was vital if a deal was to work.
President George W Bush promised in a pre-Chistmas speech that America will leave Iraq only when “victory” has been achieved, but the term is being quietly redefined.
Dov Zakheim, a senior Pentagon official during Bush’s first term in office, said: “The goal is not democracy, it is a united Iraq that doesn’t bother its neighbours.   There is no law that says American troops have to be in the most hostile areas.”
The shift to air power is part of that policy.   Determined to reduce “collateral damage”, the American military is relying on laser or satellite-guided bombs that can strike rooms or buildings without killing large numbers of civilians.
The bombs are also getting smaller: 500lb devices are becoming the norm, rather than those of 1,000lb or 2,000lb common in recent conflicts, and 3,000 new 7in 250lb devices are on order.
Allen Peck, a US air force general, said that in some cases the 100lb Hellfire missile is used: “It won’t knock down a house, but it can be effective in taking out a car.”
In an example of the strategy, two US F16 fighters last week dropped two 500lb laser-guided bombs on three men planting roadside explosives in Kirkuk province, killing them and seven others.
However, some experts insist that even the smallest, most precise bombs cannot replace boots on the ground.
“It’s transitory.   You hit it, even occupy it, but then the insurgents return when you’ve gone, like Falluja last year,” said Wing Commander Andrew Brookes of the International Insititute for Strategic Studies.
“Even a 400lb bomb has a wide area of blast and you are quite likely to kill some civilians.
Kill a wife, children, mother or uncle and people become so angry the terrorist cycle starts all over again.”
There is also concern that Iraqi forces could abuse US air power.
In a recent issue of The New Yorker magazine, a senior Pentagon military planner wondered aloud to Seymour Hersh, the writer: “Will the Iraqis call in airstrikes in order to snuff rivals, other warlords or members of their own sect and blame somebody else?
Will some Iraqis be targeting on behalf of Al-Qaeda, the insurgency or the Iranians?”
The Americans insist, however, they will keep control of targeting by “embedding” more US troops in Iraqi police and army units.
At the same time they are making no effort to build an Iraqi air force — a sign that they have no intention of ceding control of the skies to a new Iraqi government.
If the use of planes proves effective, US troop levels should fall below 100,000 by next autumn in time for the American mid-term congressional elections.
The US death toll in Iraq last year was 841 — just five short of the 2004 total.
“The biggest problem we have is that our strategy has to include winning the war at home,” said Zakheim.
“We have a different electoral timetable to the Iraqis.”

Dahr Jamail's Iraq Dispatches
“Iraq is burning with wrath, anger and sadness…the people of Fallujah are dear to us.   They are our brothers and sisters and we are so saddened by what is happening in that city.”
There are no words better to describe the situation in Iraq, and particularly Fallujah, than these of Dr. Wamid Omar Nathmi, a senior political scientist at Baghdad University.
With over 300,000 homeless residents of Fallujah scattered about central Iraq, daily life for these refugees is a reality filled with searching for food, medical attention, warmth and clean water.
Mohammad Ali is a refugee at a camp on the Baghdad University campus.
He was crying when I interviewed him, his large body shuddering as he lamented his situation.
“We did not feel that there is Eid after Ramadan this year because of our situation being so bad.   All we have is more fasting.”
A man with one leg sitting near the mosque nodding while he smokes his cigarette while Mohammad continues, “I would like to ask the whole world-why is this?
I tell the presidents of the Arab and Muslim countries to wake up!
Wake up please!
We are being killed, we are refugees from our houses, our children have nothing-not even shoes to wear!
Wake up!
Wake up!”
He was weeping even more when he added, “I left Fallujah yesterday and I am handicapped.
I asked God to save us but our house was bombed and I lost everything.”
Another man, Khalil, pointed to several nearby children at the camp and said, “Eid is over.
Ramadan is over — and the kids are remaining without even a smile.
They have nothing and nowhere to go.
We used to take them to parks to amuse them, but now we don’t even have a house for them.”
He continued while pointing at the children, along with some women nearby, “What about the children?
What did they do?
What about the women?
I can’t describe the situation in Fallujah and the condition of the people-Fallujah is suffering too much, it is almost gone now.”
He then explained, “We got some supplies from the good people of Baghdad, and some volunteer doctors came on their own with some medicines, but they ran out daily because conditions are so bad.
We saw nothing from the Ministry of Health — no medicines or doctors or anything.”
Another Karzay

So what!

The Animal Uncaged —
Beyond the special effects, blazing pyrotechnics, elaborate sets of carnage, unremitting weapons imagery, fake blood, dramatized death and other Hollywood accessories used to condition and desensitize us to violence and warfare, only a very small fraction of Americans have ever experienced real war
Dahr Jamail's Iraq Dispatches
He said those who left Fallujah did not think they would be gone so long, so they brought only their summer clothes.
Now it is quite cold at night, down to 5 degrees C at night and windy much of the time.
Khalil added, “We need more clothes.
It’s a disaster we are living in here at this camp.
We are living like dogs and the kids do not have enough clothes.”
It’s a situation similar to that in most of the refugee camps I’ve seen here.
But there is a small light amidst this darkness.
One international organization in particular, which shall remain nameless, managed to raise funds to support many of the refugees of Fallujah.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, two of the doctors who are receiving financial donations from the organization have told of their accomplishments to date.
Under their supervision and assistance, small relief groups have worked tirelessly to distribute the supplies provided with the international donations.
At the aforementioned camp alone, thanks to donations this group managed to send to Baghdad, over $500 worth of blankets, sweaters for children, and gas heaters were provided.
Over $1,500 worth of blankets, heaters and portable stoves were distributed to another four refugee camps in Baghdad as well.
A team of volunteer Iraqi doctors was quickly organized to purchase needed medications to treat refugees.
The most common problems in the camps are influenza, pneumonia, colds, diarrhea and other water borne diseases.
Water tanks, pipes, water pumps, and water purification materials are needed desperately in most refugee camps.
Over $3,000 of donations have been used to supply a refugee camp in Baghdad with what they need to provide potable water.
Of course, much more is needed.
Now, well over $9,000 of general antibiotics like cipro, tagamet and amoxicillin have been distributed.
Needles, sterile gloves, pain medications, gauze and basic first aid materials have also been provided to three different refugee camps and used to treat suffering refugees by small groups of volunteer doctors.
Relief volunteers have even managed to get trunk loads of medicines and supplements to camps outside of Baghdad.
A doctor in Amiriyat al-Fallujah who received much needed medicines and supplies was brimming with gratitude.
The main hospital there where he works, is struggling to treat 1,500 patients each day.
Before the small city was inundated with refugees, the hospital saw just 300 patients per day.
“With hundreds of refugee families here, we have not been able to treat the people.
I can’t thank you enough for this.
These are exactly the supplies we need,” he told the volunteers who brought the medicine, “It is a good start, but of course we can use more, because we are running out of medicines every day.”
In addition to this, volunteers have plans in the works to make a another delivery there soon.
Over $1,500 was used to purchase 250 warm blankets and 50 gas heaters for a large refugee camp near Fallujah.
Another $5,000 has provided portable kerosene heaters, cooking stoves, and fuel.
These have been distributed mainly at the Al-Amiryah mosque-the main one there that is next to the bomb shelter memorial-which is where they are distributing these supplies to refugees staying in that area.
These have been critical with the cold weather now in Baghdad.
Some of the last refugees to leave their homes are in Husabe, a small city not far from Fallujah.
234 refugees there who arrived 11 days ago received $2,000 worth of blankets, heaters, food and jackets.
While needs are assessed, more of this money is being spent in camps where there continues to be little or no relief from the Ministry of Health.
With most NGO’s having left Iraq because of the security situation, this grass-roots effort has filled some of the huge gaps left in their absence.
“I’ve been praying for someone to help us here,” said Suthir, a mother of six small children at a refugee camp in the Amiryah district of Baghdad.
“And God has taken care of us now.
We’ve been so cold at night, but now we finally have a heater.”

Inside Falluja:
'Nothing to come back to'
Scenes of widespread destruction have greeted residents allowed back into the Iraqi city of Falluja following the US assault in November.
BBC News spoke to Dr Saleh Hussein Isawi, the acting director of the Falluja general hospital, who accompanied some of the refugees into the city.
  At about 0800 on Friday, the US checkpoint in the west of Falluja agreed that people from the city, especially those who live in the Andalus sector, be allowed inside to see their homes.
Falluja returnees queue at checkpoint
A shattered city awaits refugees seeking a return to Falluja
I was there, inside the city — about 60% to 70% of the homes and buildings are completely crushed and damaged, and not ready to inhabit at the moment.
Of the 30% still left standing, I don't think there is a single one that has not been exposed to some damage.
One of my colleagues... went to see his home, and saw that it is almost completely collapsed and everything is burnt inside.
When he went to his neighbours' home, he found a relative of his was dead and a dog had eaten the meat off him.
I think we will see many things like this, because the US forces have cleared the dead people from the streets, but not from inside the homes.
Most of the people are coming back out of the city after seeing that their homes are not ready for living in.
But I saw two families who stayed in Falluja despite their homes being clearly damaged, and one man, who has only a room to live in, has told me he will stay on because he has been living in very bad conditions outside Falluja.
He told me he will bring other members of his family and will live there — he cannot do otherwise.
There is no water, no electricity, no sewage system — there is nothing inside the city, except a very small amount of medical supplies that have come from Falluja hospital by two ambulances.
There is a primary health centre inside the city with two doctors to give people medical supplies and support.
I was in Falluja hospital last night and I heard a lot of fighting and bombing, which continued for about three or four hours. 
I head very loud explosions inside the city.

"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.
We're going to see enormous panic here.
But he could get through that.
That will be another year, and the damage he's going to do between then and now is enormous.
We're going to have some very bad months ahead.

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.

Niels Harrit interview on Danish TV2 television.

So you found nano-thermite in the World Trade Center buildings, why do you think it caused the collapses?

Researchers found nano-thermite explosives in the dust and rubble of the World Trade Center buildings that cannot have come from the planes.

The believe several tonnes of explosives were placed in the buildings in advance.

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.

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.

He has been a practicing Architect for 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings.
He is employed with a San Francisco Bay Area architecture firm and has most recently performed Construction Administration services for a new $120M High School campus including a $10M steel-framed Gymnasium.
Currently he is working on the Design Development for a very large mixed use urban project with 1.2M sq.ft. of retail and 320K sq.ft. of mid-rise office space — altogether about 1,200 tons of steel framing.
He has been one of the most tireless speakers on the issue of 9/11 truth, and more specifically on challenging the official narrative of the disintegration of the 3 major skyscrapers in the World Trade Center complex that took place on September 11th.
He has been lecturing widely across the US and in Canada.
Those who see his presentation rarely walk away still thinking that fires alone could have brought down the buildings.
When NIST came out with a report recently that fires were responsible for the destruction of WTC7, Richard and Architects and Engineers were quick to challenge that report.
See NY Times quotes Richard Gage on WTC7 "collapse"
Aside from the NYT's reporter and a media request from Bulgaria, the press has tried to ignore the serious criticisms that Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth has raised about their reports.
Richard Gage gives an insightful interview on major points that scientifically do not agree with the official story of 9/11.

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.

Despite Israeli refusal to respond to the accusations, the two are labeled in the New Zealand media as Mossad agents acting on behalf of the Israeli intelligence community.

Foreign Ministry officials stated they will do everything possible to renew diplomatic ties, expressing sorrow over the "unfortunate incident".
