by Susan S Fri May 12, 2006 at 05:00:12 AM PDT
Unfortunately, I was out-of-town on Tuesday when Bush visited withsenior citizens in Sun City, Florida, but several of my friends arrangeda protest. Forgive me if I missed a previous diary on this. I amjust now catching up and I'm appalled. Below the fold are some first-hand (and very scary) reports from theevent:Susan S's diary :: ::
Narrative re: Bush's visit to SCC on May 9, 2006 from Barbara Nicholson
We stood with about 50 others on rte 674 and when the motorcade came bythere was assault rifle OUT the window pointing at ALL of us and thecars all looked like I remember seeing in the Hitler motorcades in themovies when I was a child, all boxy and black and one had the Pres sealand American flag on the sides. It was absolutely chilling! I workedthe inner city for 15 years with gangs and even with kids and familiesof the Bloods and Crips and have never had an assault rifle pointed myway. In my 75 years I have seen many Pres motorcades and shook many preshands and seen many pres elects and their entourage but never anythinglike this with the motorcycles, big black cars and rifles were just thevery last straw. It wasn't the rifle that was scary it was knowing thatthis madman is so insecure and scared and psychotic that this is how hemust travel. AARRRRRGH! USA, Banana Republic for sure. Then toknow our tax money paid for this photo op and for the fundraisingluncheon at the Renaissance Club is truly the icing on the cake whichwill kill us all. Very depressing to say the least.From an intern for Congressional candidate John Russell (FL-5):Here is my full story, with everything correct. As you know I aminterning with John Russell, a candidate in District 5 running againstGinny Brown-Waite. We went to the protest to make sure bush heard aboutthe problems with Medicare Part D. As the President drove by John wasdelivering his message to the President, who was looking at us out thewindow. I don't remember if it was before or after the President's car,but inside on of the black suv's was a man holding, what looked to be,an automatic rifle out the window. It was pointed at the protesters. Iam glad to hear that the people on the other side of the street saw thistoo. Those of us on the corner I was on couldn't believe that this hadoccurred, and John proceeded to tell President Bush as he got out of themotorcade, 'how dare you point a weapon at civil protesters' among otherthings. It was a very interesting day for me, being the first time Ihave ever seen the President, and the first time I have been directlythreatened by the President. hopefully this helps in lining up thestories. Please send this out to everyone, and keep the talk growing. Iwant to know if this is standard operating procedure for the Bushmotorcade, or a one time thing.~Nic ZatesloIntern for John Russell, Candidate for Congress District 5And from Kossack boofdah:Mary, Nic, and I were there as well; and yes, it went down exactly asBarbara and John have said below. I don't think I've ever felt such asense of foreboding in my life as when I saw that automatic riflepointed at us, peaceful protesters.At the time September 11th happened, I worked at a military base nearwhere I used to live before we moved to FL. Immediately after 9/11, ourbase was at Threatcon D, meaning that the military personnel guardingour base had to be armed. Yeah, I saw sharp-shooters and automaticrifles; but I took some kind of comfort in the notion that thesemeasures were meant for the "bad guys."On Tuesday, the message that the sniper hanging out the window with hisav utomatic weapon had for us was that we peacefully-protestingAmericans were the "bad guys." And that thought alone gave me thechills.Tags: Bush, protest, Florida (all tags) `````````````````````````````````````````````````````FBI Kiddie Sex Tourism Web Site Lured Predators - May 11, 2006Address:http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0511061web1.html

Condoleezza Rice at Boston College? I quit. --An open letter to William P. Leahy, SJ, president of Boston College. By Steve Almond 12 May 2006 "Dear Father Leahy, I am writing to resign my post as an adjunct professor of English at Boston College. I am doing so -- after five years at BC, and with tremendous regret -- as a direct result of your decision to invite Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to be the commencement speaker at this year's graduation. Many members of the faculty and student body already have voiced their objection to the invitation, arguing that Rice's actions as secretary of state are inconsistent with the broader humanistic values of the university and the Catholic and Jesuit traditions from which those values derive. But I am not writing this letter simply because of an objection to the war against Iraq. My concern is more fundamental. Simply put, Rice is a liar."
Secrecy Privilege Invoked in Fighting Ex-Detainee's Lawsuit 13 May 2006 For at least the fifth time in the past year, the Justice Department yesterday invoked the once rarely cited state secrets privilege to argue that a lawsuit alleging government wrongdoing should be dismissed without an airing, this time in the case of a German citizen seeking an apology and monetary compensation for having been wrongfully imprisoned by the CIA. Assistant U.S. Attorney R. Joseph Sher said yesterday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia that the government cannot confirm or deny the allegations made by Khaled al-Masri, who sources have said was held by the CIA for five months in Afghanistan.

Diplomats: Enriched uranium found in IranFriday, May 12, 2006 Posted: 1609 GMT (0009 HKT)
VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- The U.N. atomic agency found traces of highly enriched uranium at an Iranian site linked to the country's defense ministry, diplomats said Friday, adding to concerns that Tehran was hiding activities aimed at making nuclear arms.
The diplomats, who demanded anonymity in exchange for revealing the confidential information, said the findings were preliminary and still had to be confirmed through other lab tests. But they said the density of enrichment appeared to be close to or above the level used to make nuclear warheads.
Still, they said, further analysis could show that the traces match others established to have come from abroad. The International Atomic Energy Agency determined earlier traces of weapons-grade uranium were imported on equipment from Pakistan that Iran bought on the black market during nearly two decades of clandestine activity discovered just over three years ago.
Uranium enriched to between 3.5 percent and 5 percent is used to make fuel for reactors to generate electricity. It becomes suitable for use in nuclear weapons when enriched to more than 90 percent.
Iran's refusal to give up enrichment ambitions has led to involvement by the U.N. Security Council, which has the power to impose sanctions but remains split on how firmly to pressure Tehran.
Key U.N. Security Council members agreed Tuesday to postpone a resolution that would have delivered an ultimatum to Tehran, giving Iran another two weeks to re-evaluate its insistence on developing its uranium enrichment capabilities.
Iran's hard-line president said Friday that his country was not afraid of possible U.S. military action over its enrichment program, but added that he thought any such strikes were very unlikely. Washington has said it favors a diplomatic end to the dispute, but it hasn't ruled out military force.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also told a local TV station that Iran would cooperate with the Security Council if it makes a decision on the escalating standoff as long as the world body acts "in line with international rules."
The Islamic republic denies accusations it wants to make nuclear arms and says it is only interested in uranium to generate power.
To argue that it never enriched uranium domestically to weapons grade, it cites the IAEA's tentative conclusion last year that weapons-grade traces collected from other sites within the country with no suspected ties to that military came in on equipment from Pakistan.
The origin of the samples now under perusal created some concern in that regard.
One of the diplomats told The Associated Press that the samples came from equipment that can be used in uranium-enriching centrifuges at a former research center at Lavizan-Shian.
The center is believed to have been the repository of equipment bought by the Iranian military that could be used in a nuclear weapons program.
The United States alleges Iran had conducted high-explosive tests that could have a bearing on developing nuclear weapons at the site.
The State Department said in 2004 that Lavizan's buildings had been dismantled and topsoil had been removed in attempts to hide nuclear weapons-related experiments. The agency subsequently confirmed that the site had been razed.
In an April 28 report to the U.N. Security Council and the IAEA's 35-nation board of governors, agency head Mohamed ElBaradei said the agency took samples from some of the equipment of the former Physics Research Center at Lavizan-Shian. The diplomat said the evaluation of those samples revealed the traces in question.
Ahmadinejad's remarks on possible U.S. military action were made in Jakarta during a discussion with Indonesian Islamic leaders.
Asked whether his country was prepared to face an attack by the United States, he said "that is very unlikely because they know the Islamic Republic of Iran is a strong country."
"They are trying to frighten our country by waging a propaganda campaign using strong words. The people of Iran and the country are not afraid of them," he said to applause from the audience.
The Chinese and Russians have balked at British, French and U.S. efforts to put the resolution under Chapter 7 of the U.N. Charter.
Such a move would declare Iran a threat to international peace and security and set the stage for further measures if Tehran refuses to suspend its uranium enrichment operations. Those measures could range from breaking diplomatic relations to economic sanctions and military action.

MIXING IT UP Harmless Levels of Chemicals Prove Toxic Together
[Rachel's introduction: One chemical alone may do no harm in low doses, butin conjunction with a few of its peers, even in doses that individually seemsafe, it may inflict serious harm.]
By David Biello
One chemical alone may do no harm in low doses, but in conjunction with afew of its peers, even in doses that are individually safe, it can inflictserious harm. New research in frogs shows that a mixture of nine chemicalsfound in a seed-corn field in York County, Nebraska, killed a third ofexposed tadpoles and lengthened time to metamorphosis by more than two weeksfor the survivors.
Biologist Tyrone Hayes and his colleagues at the University of California,Berkeley, have spent the past four years testing four herbicides, twofungicides and three insecticides commonly used in American cornfields.Individually, the chemicals had little effect on developing tadpoles at lowconcentrations, such as about 0.1 part per billion. But when Hayes exposedthem to all nine at the same low level in the laboratory--the lowest levelactually found in the field--the future frogs fell prey to endemicinfection. Those that survived ended up smaller than their counterpartsraised in clean water--despite taking longer to mature into adults. "Inhumans, this is like saying, 'The longer you are pregnant, the smaller yourbaby will be," which means the womb is no longer a nurturing environment,"Hayes notes.
Hayes's study joins a growing body of work showing that chemicals incombination can produce a wide range of effects even at low concentrations.Rick Relyea of the University of Pittsburgh has shown in several studiesthat tadpoles exposed in their water to low levels of a single pesticide andthe smell of a predator will face significantly higher mortality rates. Forinstance, about 90 percent of bullfrog tadpoles died from exposure to thepesticide carbaryl when the smell of predatory newts was present, whereas notadpoles perished if exposed to each individually. "The pesticide may beinducing a general stress in the tadpole that, when combined with anotherstressor, becomes deadly, Relyea argues.
It is not just pesticides that show a mixture effect. Phthalates-- chemicalsofteners that make polymers flexible--can interfere with the sexualdevelopment of male rats. "We have males treated with phthalates where thetestes are under the kidneys or floating around in the abdominal cavity,"explains L. Earl Gray, Jr., a biologist at the Environmental ProtectionAgency and codiscoverer of this deformity, which has been dubbed phthalatesyndrome. Gray has also found that various kinds of phthalates incombination either with one another Or with certain pesticides andindustrial effluents exert ever more powerful effects. For example, twophthalates at concentrations that on their own would not produce muchdeformity combined to create defective urethras (hypospadias) in 25 percentof exposed rats.
Besides adding to the issue of endocrine disruption--whether industrialchemicals are mimicking natural hormones--the findings on mixtures pose anincredible challenge for regulators. With tens of thousands of chemicals inregular use worldwide, assessing which combinations might prove harmful is agargantuan task. "Most of the offices in the agency recognize that we cannotoperate via the idea of 'one chemical, one exposure' to an individualanymore. We need to look at broader classes of compounds and how theyinteract," says Elaine Francis, national program director for the EPA'spesticides and toxics research program. But such testing has a long way togo to reach any kind of regulation, particularly given industry's qualmsabout the validity of existing research.
Marian Stanley, who chairs the phthalates panel for the American ChemistryCouncil, notes that at least one study showed that rodents suffering fromphthalate malformations could still mate and have litters.
"The additivity of phthalates alone are on end points that may not have anybiological relevance," she says.
Nevertheless, evidence continues to accumulate that mixture effects are acritical area of study. In its National Water Quality Assessment, the U.S.Geological Survey found that a sampling of the nation's streams containedtwo or more pesticides 90 percent of the time. "The potential effects ofcontaminant mixtures on people, aquatic life and fish-eating wildlife arestill poorly understood," states hydrologist Robert Gilliom, lead author ofthe study. "Our results indicate, however, that studies Of mixtures shouldbe a high priority."
Sidebar: Human Disruption
By David Biello
Besides affecting amphibians, endocrine disruption -- chemical interferencewith hormonal cascades involved in development--may also be happening inhumans. Shanna Swan of the University of Rochester has linked fetal exposureto phthalates and genital changes in 85 baby boys. "We found effects atlevels that are seen in a quarter of the U.S. population," Swarm says.
But whether the malformations stem from phthalates alone or in combinationwith other compounds remains unknown, because humans encounter manychemicals in mixture. To help sort out matters, a Johns Hopkins Universitystudy will look for the most common chemicals in people. Umbilical cordblood will be tested for a wide array of substances, from pesticides tophthalates to heavy metals, and the overall levels then correlated with thebabies' characteristics at birth. Explains the study's leader, Lynn Goldman:"If we can identify some of these mixtures to which people are commonlyexposed, then those might be the mixtures to look at more closely."

When the cities are on fire with the burning flesh of men
Just remember that death is not the end
And you search in vain to find just one law abiding citizen
Just remember that death is not the end - Bob Dylan
Afraid I don't have time today to discuss these, but some stories need attention:
From Wednesday's Mirror the headline, "Have 200,000 AK47s Fallen Into the Hands of Iraq Terrorists?" (also see this thread on the RI discussion board):
Some 200,000 guns the US sent to Iraqi security forces may have been smuggled to terrorists, it was feared yesterday.
The 99-tonne cache of AK47s was to have been secretly flown out from a US base in Bosnia. But the four planeloads of arms have vanished.
Orders for the deal to go ahead were given by the US Department of Defense. But the work was contracted out via a complex web of private arms traders.
And the Moldovan airline used to transport the shipment was blasted by the UN in 2003 for smuggling arms to Liberia, human rights group Amnesty has discovered.
It follows a separate probe claiming that thousands of guns meant for Iraq's police and army instead went to al-Qaeda.
Amnesty chief spokesman Mike Blakemore said: "It's unbelievable that no one can account for 200,000 assault rifles. If these weapons have gone missing it's a terrifying prospect." American defence chiefs hired a US firm to take the guns, from the 90s Bosnian war, to Iraq.
But air traffic controllers in Baghdad have no record of the flights, which supposedly took off between July 2004 and July 2005. A coalition forces spokesman confirmed they had not received "any weapons from Bosnia" and added they were "not aware of any purchases for Iraq from Bosnia". Nato and US officials have already voiced fears that Bosnian arms - sold by US, British and Swiss firms - are being passed to insurgents. A NATO spokesman said: "There's no tracking mechanism to ensure they don't fall into the wrong hands. There are concerns that some may have been siphoned off." This year a newspaper claimed two UK firms were involved in a deal in which thousands of guns for Iraqi forces were re-routed to al-Qaeda.
The Moldovan airline is Aerocom, and yes, it's one of Victor Bout's.
It's always a bang-your-head-against-the-wall moment, reading again the play the incompetence theory receives, even from some of the Administration's harshest mainstream critics. But then, even to talk of an "administration" may be misdirection at this point, given how little representative government means in the United States these days, and how much of "national security" has been privatized into a global gangland of drugs and guns.
Like the tens of billions of dollars that have been "lost" in Iraq, planeloads of arms don't just "vanish"; not when the Pentagon contracts the work to an international criminal of Bout's untouchable stature. But Bout's name isn't likely to be mentioned in whatever coverage this story receives, before it sinks like so many others beneath the media's frothing triviality.
Meanwhile, a decision's been reached in the trial of Toledo priest Gerald Robinson. And it's guilty:
The Rev. Gerald Robinson appeared stony-faced as the jury's guilty verdict was read, and he blinked repeatedly and glanced at his lawyers before being led away in handcuffs.
The crime occurred in the sacristy adjoining the hospital chapel in downtown Toledo on the Saturday before Easter in 1980. Investigators said the nun, Margaret Ann Pahl, 71, was strangled and then stabbed, with nine wounds on her chest forming the shape of an inverted cross, a well-recognized Satanic symbol.
An altar cloth was draped over her half-naked body, which was posed as if she had been sexually assaulted.
"It was about how he could humiliate her the most," prosecutor Dean Mandros said in closing arguments. "He left a message for everyone to see � maybe to God himself."
After the sentencing one of Robinson's tearful supporters "turned to Claudia Vercellotti, a local leader of the Survivors Network for Those Abused by Priests [SNAP], who had helped reopen the case, and told her, 'I hope you rot in hell!'"
From SNAP's statement on the Robinson conviction:
More than ever, police and prosecutors have the tools and the will to go after horrific crimes, even when the defendants are seemingly powerful individuals or institutions.
When victims and witnesses stay silent, nothing changes. When victims and witnesses speak up, at least sometimes a child is protected, the truth is exposed, and justice is done.
The murder weapon, Robinson's letter opener:
Finally, from an email, a follow-up on the reopening of the investigation into the Atlanta Child Murders:
Dekalb County Police Chief Louis Graham...the man who reopened the investigations last year, is mysteriously stepping down. And of all the people who the county is getting to find a replacement...is none other than Lee Brown, the original supervisor of the Atlanta PD, who was in office during the murders and the subsequent investigation.
SNAP is right in part. Police and prosecutors have the tools. The will is another matter. Some do, individually. But institutionally? That's still the domain of those who don't.
Then, of course, there is the evidence the jury did not hear about in the Robinson case...
Funny how some things are squirelled away by well-meaning prosecutors... Maybe because they hint at a larger conspiracy/network of abusers/satanic underground?
And MEK -- the Iranian (not Iraqi) terror group in question -- is itself unquestionably a cult:
As the leaders like to boast, the Mujahedeen is a family affair. (''We have three generations of martyrs: grandmothers, mothers, daughters.'') Most of the girls I was meeting had grown up in Mujahedeen schools in Ashraf, where they lived separated from their parents. Family visits were allowed on Thursday nights and Fridays. When Iraq invaded Kuwait, many of these girls were transported to Jordan and then smuggled to various countries -- Germany, France, Canada, Denmark, England, the United States -- where they were raised by guardians who were usually Mujahedeen supporters. When they were 18 or 19, many of them decided to come back to Iraq and fill the ranks of the youngest Mujahedeen generation. Though ''decided'' is probably not the right word, since from the day they were born, these girls and boys were not taught to think for themselves but to blindly follow their leaders. ''Every morning and night, the kids, beginning as young as 1 and 2, had to stand before a poster of Massoud and Maryam, salute them and shout praises to them,'' Nadereh Afshari, a former Mujahedeen deep-believer, told me. Afshari, who was posted in Germany and was responsible for receiving Mujahedeen children during the gulf war, said that when the German government tried to absorb Mujahedeen children into their education system, the Mujahedeen refused. Many of the children were sent to Mujahedeen schools, particularly in France. The Rajavis, Afshari went on to say, ''saw these kids as the next generation's soldiers. They wanted to brainwash them and control them.'' Which may explain the pattern to their stories: a journey to self-empowerment and the enlightenment of self-sacrifice inspired by the light and wisdom of Maryam and Massoud.
One has to wonder whether the bright fellows in our government and military who set up the deals with these people don't know what they are, don't care, or know perfectly well.
US outsourcing special ops, intelligence to Iraq terror group, intelligence officials say
The Pentagon is bypassing official US intelligence channels and turning to a dangerous and unruly cast of characters in order to create strife in Iran in preparation for any possible attack, former and current intelligence officials say...
A country deserves the leaders it has, my friends...

Hayden and the NSA- the most ignored "9/11 connection"?
A 'rant' based on research, compiled between 2001 and 2006,
Gen. Michael V. Hayden, currently Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence has also served as Commander of the Air Intelligence Agency and as Director of the Joint Command and Control Warfare Center.
But more important, he was also former head of the NSA (March 1999 - April 2005).
The role of the NSA regarding 9/11, and ironically also the 9/11 truth 'community',
is consequently dismissed and ignored by many '9/11 truthseekers'.
Apparently because some particular '9/11 authors'
and self appointed '9/11 activist leaders'
distracted too much with 'CIA, Cheney and the Pentagon'.
It was always clear, why.
To also delay or distract from all physical evidence, based on military operations, scripted by the NSA and their private contractors.
The NSA, but also the NASA had their eyes not only on the 9/11 "plotline"but also on the "military operation" of 9/11.
More closely than any other U.S. Government Agency.
The National Security Agency (NSA) has traditionally influenced
and been a very early and sophisticated user of the highest performance of commercial computer, storage, and networking systems.
That includes also the Internet and the internet "daisy committees" of the NSA.
These are unidentified online trolls, which nicknames share different I.P. addresses, though only impostering 'one and the same user'.
However this "user", represented with a nickname is also able to post 24/7 on particular discussion boards, apparently without any sleep.
The NSA can also basically login and monitor all important databases of the U.S., especially aviation databases.
Among them the National Flight Database (NFD).
Current data elements included are:
Airports and Heliports, Standard Terminal Arrival Procedures (STARs), GPS and RNAV (GPS) or Runways for airports that have a SIAP coded in the NFD.
Would the NSA 'log in' on the morning on Sep11th?
Sure they would.
That's why they also know, that the BTS database of the FAA already proves, that "AA77" and "AA11" did not exist on the morning of 9/11.
The NSA knew all alleged passengers on the morning of Sep11th.
They know this faster than the FBI or CIA.
They know which plane does exist and which doesn't.
They also know in real time, what really happened in NYC, Shanksville and at the Pentagon, because of less stress of 'competence'.
In other words, the NSA are important part of the perpetrators who 'did 9/11'.
"The CIA did 9/11" is instead distraction language of many "9/11 truthlings", based on a dried out old school meme of the 80s.
This meme often also includes other inane 'NWO'-drivel like endless distractions of esoterical traps like "MK-ULTRA" or "drug business", to water down the issue.
The 'CIA-talk' often distracts on alleged on-topic 'discussion forums' with other off-topics, which immediately deceive their online members with secondary 'research' or even pseudo-religious agenda, new age cults and other historical sideshows.
Often "CIA researchers" find themselves quickly among associates of "TWA800 researchers" or worse: "JFK researchers" or "moonflight hoax debunkers".
The strategy is obvious.
To distract from Sep11th with either paranoia or "80s conspiracy theories".
"The Mossad did it"-meme has a similar strategy, though it clearly distracts with other obvious agendas, often even conflicting each other,
which has the same purpose: Divide and Conquer.
Right after 9/11, self appointed "Mossad researchers", often end up
in debates on historical research from over 2000-3000 years ago,
which is even more effective.
The 'CIA distraction' also helps to stir a fight between
the supporters of the 'mossad distraction'
and the 'CIA-NWO' sensationalists,
often also accused as "zionists", especially if you deny ANY complicity of the Mossad.
But what has 'complicity' to do with the actual performance of the inside operation?
Basically the same complicity of the so called '9/11 cover-up'
can also be easily constructed with the dutch-, german-, saudi- or pakistani intelligence.
The result is an endless debate on whether the one or other agency had more orless participation into 9/11.
What almost noone realizes, all these 'complicities' refer in the majority to the plotline, not the military operation.
Therefore it doesn't matter if either CIA, BND, MOSSAD, Dutch Intelligence or "Able Danger" "observed" or "impostered" the alleged hijackers.
It all represents just the 'plotline' and distracts from
the controlled demolition or the so called "controversial" TV fakery research. (http://www.911closeup.com/nico/FAQ_planehuggers.html )
The "CIA connection" was also designed to distract from the private military-and intelligence contractors (PMCs), which already replaced and dominatedU.S. Intelligence anyway.
Another "distraction", not less effective, is the "Bush did it" meme,
which helps to distract with post 9/11' -"scandals" of the White House or Pentagon, to keep false hope campaigners or the complete 'anti-war movement' busy.
The same "bush did it" meme also automatically triggers other inane 'activist drivel' on prior knowledge red herrings like Jeb or Marvin Bush.
That's why also so called leftgatekeepers are still clueless about the real playersof many other new 'setups' against their own citizens:
Among them In-Q-Tel, Titan Corp., BoozAllen Hamilton, CSC/DynCorp, SAIC and many others.
The NSA has their own satellite surveillance trackers, developed by SAICand other private intelligence contractors.
(* see also
SAIC- power structure 9/11 and more
On the morning of Sep11th, the NSA did not follow any particular standard government- and military procedure or any other logistics, therefore cannot be accused of "negligence".
There also was no "Rumsfeld around".
Neither a silly "Rove influence", "Cheney" or "Joe Wilson",
all carefully designed limited hangout puppets.
Truthlings and Gatekeepers apparently watched too many soap operas.
If the name isn't known to them, it isn't 'cool' to talk about.
That's why more important players of the 9/11 perps never arrived
on any '9/11 truth flyer', among them:
Douglas Feith, Stephen Cambone, Jay C Davis (ANSER), James Woolsey, Ruth David, James R. Clapper, Duane (Dewey) Clarridge, Andrew W. "Yoda" Marshall, Scott Myers, Eliot Cohen, Christopher Demut, Thomas S. Foley, Charles Holland, David Jeremiah, Michael Ledeen, Norman Podhoretz, Bruce P. Jackson, the Naudet Brothers, the Club of Rome, Raytheon and many others.
That's why also the role of the NSA is underrepresented in this 'truth movement', because much closer to the truth than anyone else.
That's why cointel-pro still succesfully runs or deceives the biggest 'activist' groups in the 9/11 truth movement.
Anyone knows, that the Heritage Foundation runs meetup.com,
where most of the 'activists' met in the first time?
Obviously the majority doesn't.
"Profile producers" are less important than "profile paranoia".
When 'Civil Right activists' try to distract with "controversial surveillance facts" on the NSA, they follow a clear script from their leadership groups, itself also infiltrated by government agents or sponsored by right wing think tanks, ironically also often close to the CIA.
The same or similar pattern can be also seen in the 'alternative media'.
Often cited in this connection:
DemocracyNow!, FAIR, Nation, PBS or truthout.org.
It not only helps as a gatekeeper distraction from 9/11,
it also helps to increase the limited hangout agenda
for the political theatre.
However the role of the NSA for both 9/11 'plotline' and 'military operation', but also 'disinformation front' and 'surveillance industry' regarding 9/11 'activists' is much more important.
It wasn't the CIA, but apparently the NSA with their most advanced high tech, which really was in charge of the so called "9/11 plotline".
However the official 'plotline' of 9/11 had nothing to do with the military operation.
The 'plotline' of 9/11 helped as most important distraction, even still in 2006.
While the 9/11 perpetrators used the CIA as helpful distraction idiots,
the NSA knew exactly who observed whom in the 'plotline' and when the 'military operation' would take place:

Subject: video - Cafferty: Dictatorship
Jack Cafferty didn't hold back today:
Cafferty: We all hope nothing happens to Arlen Specter, the Republican head of the Senate Judiciary Committee, cause he might be all that stands between us and a full blown dictatorship in this country. He's vowed to question these phone company executives about volunteering to provide the government with my telephone records, and yours, and tens of millions of other Americans.
Shortly after 9/11, AT7T, Verizon, and BellSouth began providing the super-secret NSA with information on phone calls of millions of our citizens, all part of the War on Terror, President Bush says. Why don't you go find Osama bin Laden, and seal the country's borders, and start inspecting the containers that come into our ports?
The President rushed out this morning in the wake of this front page story in USA Today and declared the government is doing nothing wrong, and all this is just fine. Is it? Is it legal? Then why did the Justice Department suddenly drop its investigation of the warrantless spying on citizens because the NSA said Justice Department lawyers didn't have the necessary security clearance to do the investigation. Read that sentence again. A secret government agency has told our Justice Department that it's not allowed to investigate it. And the Justice Department just says ok and drops the whole thing. We're in some serious trouble, boys and girls"
Jesse has a round up of House members reactions...
Harman and Conyers just introduced a bill: "The Act would require any attempt to listen in on Americans or collect telephone or e-mail records to be be conducted in accordance with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 (FISA)"
How long does it have to take for our representatives to wake up and realize what this administration is doing? Turley last night made it quite clear. They violate every law that they do not like. They don't shy away from that position publicly either. The rubber stamp Repubs are just as guilty. Does anyone expect Specter to actually do something meaningful except to blow plenty of hot air?

Joe speaks out against the Phone scam. When republican pundits are so fiercely against this program, how long will it take for the American people to understand Jonathan Turley's outrage?
Scarborough: Now, for liberals who've long been going against almost all of these issues to defend privacy, the news has to be disturbing. But no less so the conservatives who have fought national ID cards and gun registration for years out of fear of big government.
Now, whatever you consider yourself, friends, you should be afraid. You should be very afraid. With over 200 million Americans targeted, this domestic spying program is so widespread, it is so random, it is so far removed from focusing on al Qaeda suspects that the president was talking about today, that it's hard to imagine any intelligence program in U.S. history being so susceptible to abuse...read on"
Duncan: It's important to note also, of course, that being briefed on classified programs doesn't meant that Democrats can a) tell anyone about them or b) have the power to do anything about them. So to some extent the "they were briefed" is a bit of a red herring anyway.
