Death Squads in Iraq
Fanatic Militias Used in a Dirty war

(Name of Iraqi author withheld for security reasons) The BRussells Tribunal
...The type of killing now connected to the death squads began around early 2005, on the hands of the Iraqi police commandos. But some important points worth mentioning here: that the first Iraqi interim government was (elected) in January 2005 and was heavily Shiite (Jafari government), that around that time the talk of the Salvador option in Iraq was being heard (4),! and that the police commandos were formed, mainly of Shiite militias, especially Badr (the armed branch of the Supreme Council of the Islamic Revolution in Iraq) and the Mahdi Army (the Sadr Movement militia). But does all this mean that the death squads are Shiite militias within the interior ministry forces? The answer is: NO, not exactly. I know that any Iraqi who has seen a death squads' operation (which is becoming a familiar day light phenomenon) would want to shoot me in the head for this answer; because a convoy of heavily armed men, masked, black-suited, in expensive modern cars and pick ups, calling Sunnis the worst of names, shooting in the air, calling for revenge, attacking individuals, shops, kidnapping people, beating them to death or shoving them in cars trunks, would not look like anything other than a sectarian militia. But this is only part of the story.

US/UK BASES IN IRAQ, Part II. The South : Falcon-Al-Sarq, Tallil, Shaibah
Sarah Meyer, Index Research
The CIA ’03 oil map (above) explains the location of US/UK bases in Iraq. There is also a CIA map of oil fields, circa 1992. If one then looks at the Centcom map, one sees that there are nine visibly marked bases, not including the Baghdad complex, along the oil axis. These are: Al Sahra, Kirkuk, Balad and Qayyara West in the North; Tallil and Salman North in the South; Al Taquaddam, H2 and H3 in the West. Some s! outhern UK-controlled areas, including Basra where the UK base is located, cannot be seen. US/UK Bases in southern Iraq1 focuses on the camps and their facilities as well as some of the human rights abuses of prisoners ("detainees") within each base. Prison camps are part of the scenery within most - if not all – bases in Iraq...

Kristol: Bush as Supreme Leader
Kurt Nimmo
...Thus Kristol let slip on Fox News in response to comments made by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khameni: "Maybe we should have Supreme Leader Bush. I kind of like the sound of that." Bill thought he made a funny. But what he did, for a brief albeit brightly illuminated moment, was reveal the inner most thinking of the Straussians, now in control of the "unitary executive." Few noticed the glaring truth of this seemingly off-the-cuff comment. It was mentioned on Crooks and! Liars, Democratic Underground, Antiwar, and discussion made an appearance on numerous forums. But naturally the corporate media completely ignored the comment. It was allowed to drift up in the air, suspended for a small moment, and then evaporate into the cauldron that is the corporate media news cycle...

Sunni party makes new allegations against US forces in Iraq
Zee News
The Iraqi Islamic Party, a Sunni Arab political party, today accused US forces of unlawfully killing over two dozen Iraqis last month in a series of incidents across the country. "The US forces have violated human rights many times across Iraq," said Omar al-Juburi, spokesman for the human rights department of the party, led by vice president Tareq al-Hashemi. In the latest in a string of allegations against US forces, Juburi said 29 people were! killed in may in separate incidents involving the US forces in the towns of Latifiyah and Yusifiyah, south of Baghdad and in Baghdad itself...

Pathetic rationalization of killing innocents at Iraq checkpoints
clammyc, Daily Kos
...According to US Defense officials, the amount of innocent Iraqi civilians killed in cold blood at US checkpoints has dropped to one per week from roughly one per day back in July 2005. What's even more disgusting is the admission that: [c]heckpoint and convoy shootings are almost always the result of mistakes in which confused or disoriented Iraqi drivers don't respond to initial warnings from U.S. forces to slow down or b! ack off, U.S. officials say. U.S. forces, worried about their own security and that of their colleagues, must make split-second decisions to fire warning shots or open fire. (...) I am sure that the Iraqis won't forget how the US vigorously defended it's right to shoot unarmed civilians in the name of "self defense"...

Judge Says Legitimacy of the Tribunal and Intimidation of Witnesses Not Important

Defense and Support Committee of President Saddam Hussein, his Comrades and all P.o.W.s and Detainees in Iraq. (ISNAD)
The trial of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein resumed with increasing intimidation of witnesses and defense counsel by Iraqi and United States authorities and with the Special Court refusing to rule on defense lawyers’ requests for time to prepare and present their case. Judge Abdel Rahman said! that neither the legitimacy of the Special Court nor the detention of defense witness was important in refusing to reply to defense lawyers’ request that lawyer not be harassed and that the defense lawyers’ be given time to prepare a defense. He said these are not his problems. Prior to the Monday hearing the United States authorities attempted to prevent the President’s lawyers from coming to Iraq by repeatedly threatening that they would be arrested and that their security could not be guaranteed despite the fact that the trial is taking place in the heavily fortified Green Zone, under American control. When they arrived they were taken to be 'screened’ where they were thoroughly searched, including their confidential papers in a procedure described as new...

The Real Meaning of Haditha
Tom Engelhardt
...If those horrific murders in Haditha become the mother of all "incidents," however, Iraq may not make more sense, but less. So let's widen the Iraq frame and take another look. Those 24 dead noncombatants are not, in fact, an "incident" at all, nor "isolated," nor -- another of those then-and-now terms -- an "aberration." Make no mistake, they are the essence of this war. From the beginning, the continual slaughter of civilians, as well as the destruction of civilian ! property and livelihoods, has been the modus operandi of the American invasion and occupation of Iraq. That most of it didn't happen eyeball-to-eyeball with revenge on the brain certainly made little difference to the many victims, nor should it make too much difference to us...

From logistics to turning a blind eye: Europe's role in terror abductions
Stephen Grey and Ian Cobain, The Guardian
The full extent of European collusion with the CIA during operations to abduct terrorism suspects and fly them to countries where they may be tortured is laid bare today by the continent's most authoritative human rights body. Several states have allowed the agency to snatch their own residents, others have offered extensive logistical support, while many have turned a blind eye, according to the Co! uncil of Europe. The UK stands accused of not only allowing the use of British airspace and airports, but of providing information that was used during the torture of one suspect. The report adds that there is strong evidence to suspect two European states, Poland and Romania, of permitting the CIA to operate secret prisons on their soil, despite official denials...

Limbaugh admitted to airing call from phony liberal-bashing Lt. Col. in Iraq but continued to hold out hope officer was real
Media Matters
On his radio show, Rush Limbaugh admitted he had aired a phone call from a purported Air Force officer in Iraq who the military says "[d]oes not exist." The apparently phony officer, who Limbaugh said identified himself as "Lieutenant Colonel Luke Fitzpatrick" of the "336th Tactical Air Wing," delivered what Limbaugh described as a "profound" and "mov[ing]" message. But despit! e acknowledging that Pentagon officials and the Air Force told him they have no record of a "Luke Fitzpatrick" or a "336th Tactical Air Wing," Limbaugh nonetheless continued to float the possibility that the caller was in fact an officer in Iraq...

Posada Crony Runs Iraq Death Squads
Prensa Latina
US Colonel James Steele, accomplice of international terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, is advising death squad operations in Iraq, Granma newspaper reported Tuesday. Steele was the one to whom Posada Carriles reported the shooting down of a DC-3 airplane in Nicaragua and Eugene Hassenfus´ apprehension, an incident that provoked the Iran-Contras scandal, the daily stated. Steele´s presence was denounced in a letter by US congressman Dennis J. Kucinich addressed to th! e State Department. Kucinich said he has a copy of all Pentagon documents on the use of US Special Forces members to constitute murder and kidnapping equipment in Iraq...

The Case of the Missing $21 Billion
Who's Following the Iraq Money?

During the days of the Nixon Watergate scandal investigation, reporter Bob Woodword was famously advised by his mysterious source, Deep Throat, to "follow the money" as a way of cracking the story. Well, there is a lot of money to follow in the current scandal that can be best described as the Bush/Cheney administration, and so far, nobody's doing it. My bet for the place that needs the most following is the more than $9 ! billion that has gone missing without a trace in Iraq--as well as $12 billion in cash that the Pentagon flew into Iraq straight from Federal Reserve vaults via military transports, and for which there has been little or no accounting...

When hope died: The lesson of Ishaqi
Richard Marsden, The Business of Emotions
It's not often we get to witness the death of an emotion. But it happens. It happened this weekend, another casualty of Ishaqi. Was it only last Thursday that the BBC broadcast new video evidence of the U.S. attack on a house there which killed five children, four women and two men by American forces? The video corroborated other, photographic, autopsy, and eye-witness, evidence. Together they contradicted the Pentagon's version of eve! nts. Coming hard on the heels of the Haditha scandal, there was every reason to be hopeful about holding to account those responsible for these atrocities. The mounting global moral outrage was palpable. And then, the very next day, just in time for the lazy weekend, the Pentagon released a video of Major General William Caldwell reading a statement from a teleprompter, somewhere in Iraq (...) The Pentagon simply exonerated itself, ignored incriminating evidence and dismissed allegations, supported by this evidence, that its troops had executed these civilians. It then waited for the story to go away (as often happens to Friday's news). And, guess what? It did. I published a challenge to this self-exoneration on Monday— Getting away with murder at Ishaqi: The American’s "rational" defence—and looked around for company. There was none. The story died over the weekend...

Haditha? No Big Deal, Say Neocons
Robert Dreyfuss
... Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, had written in an editorial that there is entirely "too much liberal hand wringing" about the murders. On Fox, he said: Some decent liberals are spending much too much time hand wringing over this incident, which they say overshadows the decent things our troops are doing in Iraq, and a lot of the people who want us to lose in Iraq are obsessing about this story. They can barely contain their glee at this story. ! And I do think that for both Newsweek and Time to put this on the cover—we don’t know what happened yet, it’s one incident in a war, and how often have they put United States soldiers on the cover in the last three years? … And this is the time to put United States soldiers on the cover, with comparisons in the text to My Lai? It’s offensive really. And that’s what the U.S. media is using Haditha to do. … It’s not as bad as VN, obviously. No one is accusing Iraqi vets when they come back of being baby-killers…. Well, Bill, I for one as doing exactly that: accusing some Iraq vets of being baby killers, since that’s what the facts tell us. Meanwhile, over at the American Enterprise Institute, Reuel Marc Gerecht blames President Bush for the fact that there aren’t more atrocities. Don’t believe me? Here’s the text...

Today in Iraq
... Fifteen of the 50 Iraqis kidnapped yesterday in downtown Baghdad by gunmen wearing police uniforms were found wandering in eastern Baghdad, many of them showing signs of torture. Police found eight of them together on a major north-south highway in east Baghdad. Patrols were alerted to search for others and another seven were found around the area, three of whom had bullet wounds in their legs. The al-Kindi hospital confirmed that 13 people had been bro! ught in by police for treatment. Four police officers were killed, and another wounded, when gunmen attacked their patrol in Baghdad. Police sources said the attack took place in the western al-Mansour district of the capital...

'U.S. Military Hides Many More Hadithas'
Aaron Glantz and Alaa Hassan
An Iraqi doctor who was in Haditha during a deadly U.S. raid last year says there are many more stories like that in Haditha that are yet untold. The Pentagon admitted last week that U.S. Marines killed 24 civilians — including a 66-year-old woman and a four-year-old boy — in the Western Iraqi town last November. Before that, the military had maintained the civilians were killed by a roadside bomb. "There are many, many, many cases like Haditha! that are still undercover and need to be highlighted in Iraq," Dr. Salam Ishmael, projects manager with the organisation Doctors for Iraq, and former chief of the junior doctors in Baghdad's Medical City Hospital told IPS...

The Courage of Lieutenant Watada
Bob Geiger
When Lieutenant Ehren Watada's Army unit from Fort Lewis, WA leaves for Mosul in northern Iraq this month, he will not be among them. The 28-year-old Army officer will formally refuse today to ship out when his unit deploys to Iraq. "I refuse to be silent any longer. I refuse to watch families torn apart, while the President tells us to 'stay the course,'" said Watada, on a web site supporting his cause. "I refuse to be party to an illegal and immoral war against people! who did nothing to deserve our aggression." Watada faces being court martialed for refusing to serve as ordered, unless the Army allows him to resign his commission or assigns him elsewhere, in a capacity unrelated to the war in Iraq...

Iraqi Resistance Report for events of Tuesday, 6 June 2006.
Translated and/or compiled by Muhammad Abu Nasr, member, editorial board, the Free Arab Voice.
In a dispatch posted at 7:05pm Makkah time Tuesday evening, Mafkarat al-Islam reported that a short while earlier, US occupation forces had begun to seal off the city of ar-Ramadi, about 110km west of Baghdad. The blockade that the US forces are imposing on the city closes all approaches to the city and cuts it off from the Euphrates River ad the al-Warrar wat! er treatment project facility. The ar-Ramadi correspondent for Mafkarat al-Islam reported that the Americans have deployed hundreds of troops around the city, preventing anyone from entering or exiting. Afterwards, the Americans shot off the electricity grid, turned off the fresh water supply and completely shut down all the oil and gasoline stations in the city. The correspondent reported that the Americans also bombarded all medical storage facilities where medicine was kept and closed all medical clinics, confiscating their first aid supplies. At the time of reporting, American warplanes and helicopter gunships were prowling the skies at extremely low altitudes...

Israeli Exceptionalism: Hamas Is Not the Issue
Ramzy Baroud
Recently, the Aljazeera online English service posed a seemingly simple question: "Should (Israeli Prime Minister Ehud) Olmert talk with Hamas?" The question, of course, acquires ample meaning once examined against the backdrop of far-reaching political developments: Stalled peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, the emerging political crisis between supporters of PA President Mahmoud Abbas in the Fatah movement and those of the elected Palestini! an government, led by Hamas. It also comes on the heels of Olmert’s "successful" visit to Washington, where he received abundant rounds of applause from the ever-loyal US Congress and a few hints from President Bush that he can set in motion his "bold" unilateral plan to define Israel’s borders...

Thouloiya: women threatened with rape will await American soldiers with explosive belts ..
Imad Khadduri, Free Iraq
...The American occupation forces did manage this afternoon to take complete control of Thoulouiya and the surrounding villages after days of a tightly-imposed brutal siege. The Islam Memo reporter in Thoulouiya confirmed that American soldiers, along with Kurdish peshmerga soldiers, have captured the remaining districts in Thoulouiya near the post office after an unbalanced (in strength) heavy figh! ting, in which more than 60 Resistance fighters and men of Thoulouiya have died. The woman and children of Thoulouiya are now under the mercy of the American occupation forces who are ransacking and searching their homes, one by one. The occupation forces have already captured more than 100 men of the city. The reporter, who miraculously managed to escape capture by the occupiers and to leave the city, reported that the city is now open to the occupation forces to do what they like in it and without being monitored, after taking control of the city and the departure of all journalists from it...

As Sad As It Was Predictable
Story Marks the End of a Sequential and Planned Campaign to Discredit Authentic 9/11 Research


Michael C. Ruppert and Jamey Hecht
© Copyright 2006, From The Wilderness Publications, All Rights Reserved. This story may NOT be posted on any Internet web site without express written permission. Contact May be circulated, distributed or transmitted for non-profit purposes only.
June 7th 2006, 1:28pm [PST] – “Ignominious” is the only word that comes to mind as I try to describe a June 5, 2006 New York Times story titled 500 Conspiracy Buffs Meet to Seek the Truth of 9/11. For the first time (to our knowledge) in the almost five years since 9/11, the nation’s premier newspaper sent a reporter to cover a two-day conference sponsored by 9/
The term ignominious applies to both what remains of the 9-11 movement and the Times story itself. The Gray Lady’s disingenuous but expectedly well-crafted character assassination will have a lasting historical footprint, but the 9-11 truth movement has been virtually consigned to a footnote in the dustbin of history as a result of mainstream media mind control and its own foolish choices.
The truth is that the real and best 9/11 researchers chose a long time ago not to ride willingly into the Little Big Horn massacre that was long prepared for, set up, and executed over the last few months. None of us takes any satisfaction in saying we told you so, but… we told you so.
Unless a movement alleging government corruption of this magnitude understands from the gate that every move must be planned with one question and only one question in mind, it will fail at the precise moment that it reaches the threshold of mass public consciousness. That question, very simply, is “When the mainstream media is forced to take note, how will they try to discredit our efforts?”
Avoiding the obvious ambush points is the best way to plan. Of course, that threatens the chance that a movement like 9-11 truth will ever reach the mainstream media; it also evokes the now-justified observation that the only movements questioning the government and exposing the complicity of the press that get the ink or airtime will be the ones that can easily be shot down in the public eye.
The headline pretty much sets the tone for a series of cheap shots that run very predictably throughout the story — cheap shots that most of the 9-11 movement stood up and volunteered for.
Among other things the Times article spun using the following terms and phrases:
    • “splintered factions of the movement” (second paragraph)
    • “In colleges and chat rooms on the Internet, this band of disbelievers has been trying for years to prove that 9/11 was an inside job” (4th paragraph) – The Times does not mention the three best-selling books on 9/11 after the Kean Commission report including Crossing the Rubicon, The New Pearl Harbor, or The Terror Timeline.
    • “It was in tone, half trade show, half political convention” (5th paragraph) – Nothing to take seriously here, this implies. It’s only a bunch of people trying to make money selling things, have a few drinks and get laid.
    • “Mr. Berger, 40, is typical of 9/11 Truthers – a group that, in its rank and file, includes professors, chain-saw operators, [Gee, as in Texas Chain Saw Massacre?], mothers, engineers, activists, used-book sellers, pizza deliverymen, college students, a former fringe candidate for the United States Senate and a long-haired fellow named hummux (pronounced who-mook) who, on and off, lived in a cave for 15 years.” (7th paragraph) – By the time you get finished reading about the cave man you have forgotten about the professor and are now looking at this as a ridicule piece.
    • “Such ‘red flags,’ as they were sometimes called, were the meat and potatoes of the keynote speech on Friday night by Alex Jones, who is the William Jennings Bryan of the 9/11 band.” (9th paragraph) – Great, anoint a not-so-credible and easy-to-dismiss Jones as leader of the movement, wrap him up in a ball with the kooks and then flush the whole thing. Just ignore the real 9/11 pioneers like myself, Michel Chossudovsky, Paul Thompson, Nafeez Ahmed and Dan Hopsicker because we can’t be so easily dismissed. I’m certain that Jones’ pocketbook is flush, however, since he helped trash the movement which others made credible as he appropriated their research.
    • “The controlled demolition theory is the sine qua non of the 9/11 movement.” (11th paragraph) – Says who? Not one of the authors of the three best-selling 9/11 books challenging the Kean Commission adopted or endorsed this position or made this statement. – “its basic claim and, in some sense, the one upon which all others rest. It is, of course, directly contradicted by the 10,000-page investigation by the National institute of Standards and Technology, which held that jet-fuel fires distressed the towers’ structure, which eventually collapsed.
    There are more lies per square inch in this little passage than in a whole page of typical NYT fare (say, Judy Miller). First, the most widely respected 9/11 researchers have stayed completely away from physical evidence arguments, which will be discussed further below. The sine qua non of 9/11 research – as far as we’re concerned – is the original investigation and exposé that five simultaneous wargame exercises based on hijacked airliners were taking place on the morning of 9-11-01 in the Northeast Air Defense Sector and that these exercises — under the control of Dick Cheney — were what paralyzed air defenses that day. This is the one piece of hard evidence which cannot (and has not) been refuted or even acknowledged by the government.
    The cited 10,000 page investigation is one of the exact reasons why FTW and other major researchers never touched the physical evidence aspects of 9-11: sufficient non-scientific (i.e. uncontestable) evidence exists to prove government complicity, cover-up, and murder. 
    • “— the 9/11 Truthers are dogged, at home and in the office, by friends and family who suspect that they may, in fact, be completely nuts.” (13th paragraph)
    • “There is a plan by the British delegation (such as it is, so far) to get members of Parliament to watch “Loose Change”, the seminal movement DVD.” (16th paragraph) – This is one of the biggest whoppers of all. I have watched “Loose Change” and in my expert opinion it is a very fine piece of CIA disinformation, one that fits an astute maxim by Professor Peter Dale Scott: “Disinformation, in order to be effective, must be 90% accurate.”
    Even though the film opens with some of my original research (including images taken from the FTW web site), it quickly sinks into a repeatedly debunked and confabulated hypothesis that no airliner hit the Pentagon. This film is so slickly produced (and on such a large budget) that it is hard to believe that amateur filmmakers could have made it. Once the audience buys into all the credible research at the front, they are quickly swept away in a flood of easily impeached high-tech nonsense, and that was the film’s intent.
    Not long before “Loose Change” was released, a recently retired high-ranking US Naval officer approached me and tried to sell me on the claim that no plane hit the Pentagon. He even claimed that he had been inside the Pentagon on 9-11 and had seen no aircraft wreckage. He kept pushing but could not persuade me, because (as I told him) I was aware of more than 130 independent, non-military eyewitnesses who had been traveling on nearby I-395 who swore that they did see an airliner hit the Pentagon. Having driven on I-395 many times, I know that they had a perfect view.
    My last correspondence with the retired Navy Captain was on May 16th and in my message I made it very clear that I would not endorse the no-plane hypothesis and that I believed “Loose Change” to be (in impact) a CIA propaganda film, whether by design, trick or device, or the sheer gullibility of its makers.
    On May 19th the Pentagon released what it claims was new video showing a Boeing 757 striking the building. It was clear that, realizing I would not fall for the “dangle,” the powers that be had decided that they would discredit the rest of the 9-11 movement who had accepted “no plane.”
    • “Beneath the weekend’s screenings and symposiums on geopolitics and mass hypnotic trance lies a tradition of questioning concentrated power…” (18th paragraph) – “Mass hypnotic trance”? What the movement uses as a metaphor has been turned into a hyperbolic specific allegation.
    • “I hope you don’t end up dead somewhere,” a companion said to a participant… (last paragraph) – This is just a nice reinforcement that those who get it too accurately sometimes turn up dead. Psychologically, this is just the cherry on top. After all the other ridiculed and twisted logic, why should anyone go through the trouble of challenging authority if that’s the payoff one gets for being successful?
    October 2001: Michael Ruppert begins timeline of 9/11 attacks, turning up early evidence of U.S. complicity by focusing on actions by individuals, agencies, and corporations as evidenced in public media, legal proceedings, and government documents.
    October 7, 2001: Thierry Meyssan posts webpage claiming that no plane hit the pentagon on 9/11, eventuating in his book Pentagate.
    October 12, 2001: SECDEF Donald Rumsfeld, in an interview with Parade Magazine, uses the word “missile” to describe what hit the Pentagon. This was probably a deliberate intent to mislead gullible researchers. In military parlance a missile can be anything from a bullet, to an airliner striking a building, to a real missile. The first dictionary definition listed for missile states, “An object or weapon that is fired, thrown, dropped, or otherwise projected at a target; a projectile.” Thus the airliners were missiles and Rumsfeld’s choice of words was literally correct. How could anyone who understands the rudiments of evidence consider that as proof of anything?
    November 25, 2001: At an annual meeting of the Coalition on Political Assassinations, John Judge and T. Carter make a presentation regarding 9/11 in which Carter, an AA flight attendant, claims to have recovered from Pentagon wreckage the bracelet of a colleague killed in the crash of AA77.
    November 26, 2003: Michael C. Ruppert publishes “The Kennedys, Physical Evidence, and 9/11,” an essay that attempts to warn the 9/11 Truth Movement not to over-invest its energies and its credibility in questions of physical evidence which invite sabotage by U.S. counterintelligence programs (COINTELPRO).
    October 1, 2004: New Society Publishers releases Michael C. Ruppert’s Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil.  This book is the most complete, early, logical and legally actionable case against American authorities – chiefly Dick Cheney – for complicity in the 9/11 attacks.  It makes almost no reference to the physical evidence issues, precisely because they are so easily distorted.
    October 7, 2004: Washington Post Staff Writer Carol Morello publishes “Conspiracy Theories Flourish on the Internet,” which uses the “no-plane” story to characterize the 9/11 Truth Movement in general.
    March, 2005: Popular Mechanics publishes cover story claiming to debunk 9/11 skepticism.  The article gives ample space to the “no-plane” straw man. While addressing almost every major 9-11 research group, the article fails to mention Crossing the Rubicon.
    December 2005: The US State Department posts “Identifying Misinformation,” a guide to 9/11 claims.  In response, FTW contributing writer Mark Robinowitz publishes “‘Identifying Misinformation’: The State Department’s Rosetta Stone for understanding 9/11 disinformation promotes 9/11 conspiracy hoaxes while ignoring Crossing the Rubicon and other authentic investigations.” The State Department web site also fails to mention Rubicon, which by now has gained worldwide recognition.
    February, 2006: The Village Voice profiles the 9/11 Truth Movement in a negative article focused on the “no-plane” story. Again, there is no mention of Rubicon even though the Village Voice is known to have obtained at least one copy.
    March 20, 2006: In an interview by radio host Alex Jones, Charlie Sheen disputes the 9/11 Commission Report on grounds that include the no-plane hypothesis.
    March 25, 2006: Sheen makes similar claims on CNN Headline News’ “Showbiz Tonight.”
    April, 2006: USA Today reviews “no-plane” based film “Loose Change.”
    April 21, 2006: Divorce court proceedings appear in the news, accusing Sheen of dangerous mental instability and an addiction to pornographic images of “very young girls.”  The stories about Sheen proliferate through the major media for several days.
    May 16, 2006: The Pentagon releases images which it claims are proof that a Boeing 757 did indeed hit the Pentagon, discrediting the large portion of the 9/11 Truth Movement that had embraced the “no-plane” hypothesis.
    May 19, 2006: FTW publishes “It’s the Timing, Not the Film: New Frames from Pentagon Crash Video Show Langley Embarrassing the 9/11 Truth Movement.”
    The moment Crossing the Rubicon was in print, copies were rushed to major news outlets including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, and NEWSWEEK.  None of them has ever reviewed the book, though it is one of two best-selling texts on 9/11 from the skeptical point of view – nor have they ever even mentioned it.  To quote Mark Robinowitz, Rubicon “has sold 100,000 copies despite a deafening silence from the media, an extremely unusual circumstance for a book.   Even the publications that attacked From the Wilderness in the months after 9/11 for daring to connect the dots about 9/11 foreknowledge have refused to say anything (good or bad) about Rubicon.  If the thesis was flawed, surely someone somewhere would describe the errors.”  Indeed, this book accuses the sitting Vice President of the United States of mass murder, demonstrating means, motive, and opportunity.  Surely if the book was in error it would have been challenged.  Instead, there has been nothing but stony silence.
    Mr. Feuer’s New York Times article is an off-the-shelf hit piece, done in boilerplate prose, against a movement that should have had the sense to avoid this sort of thing.  For a critique of the intellectual poverty of Feuer’s language (shared by thousands of happy hacks on the gravy train), see “Conspiracy and the State of the Union.”  But Feuer and his ilk don’t matter.  The real lesson here is about how to oppose fascism: speak the truth, anticipate the propaganda, and make it impossible for disinformationists to discredit your research.  Remember: means, motive, and opportunity.  Anything else is a slippery slope to the pillory.
    This played exactly the way we said it would. It is too late to change things but perhaps someone, somewhere is paying attention from these bitter lessons. It might make a difference if there is another opportunity to fight the “Mighty Wurlitzer” of state-sponsored propaganda and mind control.

Humint Events Online
The 9/11 hijacking attacks were very likely facilitated by a rogue group within the US government that created an Islamic terrorist "Pearl Harbor" event as a catalyst for the military invasion of Middle Eastern countries. This weblog will explore the incredibly strange events of 9/11/01, and other issues of US government responsibility.

I Call Bullshit

By Spooked

Frames from here, which is a frame by frame break-down of one of the second hit videos shown on CNN.

I almost got into a car accident today. A guy in a truck ahead of me braked suddenly, I was a little distracted by something, and I had to brake fast and swerve to avoid a collision.

I drive a medium-sized sedan, and the guy in front of me was driving a large pick-up truck.

I could not help but imagine what the collision would have been like if I hadn't stopped and swerved: my car would have slammed into the back of the truck and crumpled up, probably causing minimal damage to the back of the truck, and the truck would have been pushed forward a bit.

Even if I were going 500 mph, my car STILL would have crumpled into the back of the truck-- though I would have caused more damage to the truck and pushed it forward more. However, there is NO WAY that my car would bust THROUGH the truck without slowing or crumpling.

Now think about a situation where my car is the airplane shown above and the truck is the south tower, and remember airplanes are much more lightly constructed than cars.

9/11 - Bank Buys Broker for CONCEALED DEMOLITION

In an open letter from David Hawkins to the London Market insurance brokers committee the cause for murder and fraud is laid out for the Trade Center destruction. As the onslaught of information about the destruction of the three towers on Sept. 11, 2001 the idea that the government is complicit becomes more apparent.

Dear Mr. Hough

Re: 9/11 - Bank Buys Broker for Concealed Demolition

In my e-mail to you titled, "Citigroup-AMEC 9/11 insurance fraud on Lloyd's of London?", I suggested that "Lloyd's convert its civil action in respect of alleged negligence by Citigroup-AMEC [in an alleged diesel-fueled fire leading to the destruction of WTC#7] into a RICO* suit in respect of apparent racketeering [including solicitation to murder], extortion, arson and insurance frauds .."
(Full text of letter at some excerpts below)

RICO* - Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization

We remind you that Lloyd's et al. have sued Citigroup-AMEC et al. in respect of the destruction of WTC#7 which with WTC#1 and 2, became the first three steel-framed buildings in history to collapse through fire on 9/11.

One of the directors of Citigroup is the disgraced former director of the C.I.A., John Deutch. Mr. Deutch is a director of Raytheon where he helped to destroy 'Able Danger' counter-intelligence data-mining evidence pointing at Mohammed Atta's and the other al-Qaeda cells in America a year before 9/11.

Deutch's Citigroup is now arranging credit of $25 billion to help Cerberus Capital Management buy GMAC, the mortgage broker which allowed WTC leasholder, Larry Silverstein, to structure an alleged 'double occurrence' insurance fraud.

Post 9/11, Mr. Silverstein claimed damages for two buildings (WTC# 1 & 2) but the, together with his Citigroup-AMEC and GMAC advisors, must have concealed from the court their prior knowledge that at least three WTC buildings (#1, 2 & 7) had been rigged for demolition with explosives and/or incendiaries.

If Mr. Silverstein did not know that the three WTC buildings were so rigged, he could not meaningfully have agreed with the officers of the New York Fire Department to 'pull' WTC building 7.

'Pull' is industry jargon for taking a building down with explosives.

To secure the WTC mortage, GMAC appears to have bought leaseholder-owned life insurance policies from Groupe Axa on behalf of mortgage investors, including, we suggest, Citigroup and various New York City Pension Funds ("NYPF") such as NY's Fire Department Pension Fund ("FDPF") and its Firefighters' Variable Supplements Fund ("FFVSF"), the latter being responsible for maximizing the retirement benefits of senior officers in the City fire department.

Around March 2000, these New York City Pension Funds were plaintiffs in what we consider was a Mafia-directed racketeering class action suit* against Orbital Sciences of Dulles VA.

* In the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia,
Alexandria Division (Civil Action No. 99-197-A Jury trial demanded)

The NYPF suit appears to have been designed to extort mob control over war-gaming and insured-mortgage decision support technologies of Macdonald Dettwiler and Associates ('MDA') of Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.

Following an out of court settlement, Orbital handed control of MDA to the CAI Private Equity group, custodian of the NYPF and many other labor union pension and insurance funds, thereby allowing 50 "prominent individuals" with CAI, Citigroup, GMAC and insiders to 'stage' hijackings for the 9/11 attack but conceal the subsequent demolitions in support of bogus insurance claims.

After 9/11, CAI, Citigroup, GMAC and their affiliates in Groupe AXA appear to have collected death certificates from families of dead firefighters and paid out "dead-firefighter" life insurance policies to victims' pension fund.

Deutch's Citigroup and GMAC appear to have conspired to use racketeering loans to finance 9/11 hijackings during bogus NORAD war games and divert attention from concealed demolitions and organized securities and insurance frauds.

New York firefighters with other City labor union members who missed, escaped or survived the 9/11 attacks, involuntarily profited from the deaths of their colleagues through AXA payments into their union pension and insurance funds.

City pension fund members are now at risk of being accused of participating in the 9/11 crimes and are therefore targets for racketeering and extortion.

We believe that Citigroup is buying GMAC to protect insider knowledge of the concealed demolitions of WTC buildings #1, 2 and 7 and the RICO activities of the CAI Private Equity Group members, who appear to be engaged directly or indirectly in murder, arson, racketeering and insurance frauds.

Once again, we invite you to forward this to your contacts at Lloyd's for consideration of a RICO suit against CAI's "50 prominent individuals" including the 9/11 insiders at Citigroup the bankers and GMAC the brokers.

Yours sincerely,

David Hawkins

"9/11 - Bank Buys Broker for CONCEALED DEMOLITION"

Silverstein's lawyers referred to .. near-simultaneous burnings four different courthouses by deranged man constituted 'multiple events .. Silverstein .. and partners .. borrowed $563 million from GMAC .. agreement to use insurance proceeds to pay off lender in trade center deal, the GMAC Commercial Mortgage Corporation"

"The World Trade Center leaseholder has won a court victory over his insurers .. A New York jury has decided that the 11 September 2001 attack on the two towers constituted two separate events. The US District Court ruling means Larry Silverstein could now get an extra $1.1bn (�0.56bn) from nine insurers to finance reconstruction. He has been fighting the insurance companies, arguing he was owed $7bn (�3.6bn) - double his $3.5bn policy."


Exceprts from, "9/11 - A Citigroup-AMEC insurance fraud on Lloyd's of London?
by David Hawkins, Foundation Scholar, Cambridge University, Founder of the
Citizen's Association of Forensic Economists at Hawks' CAFE ..

"An open e-mail letter to: David Hough, Executive Director London Market Insurance Brokers' Committee"


"Underwriters at Lloyd's have an ongoing action to recover damages in respect of the alleged negligence by Citigroup Construction Defendants�AMEC PLC et al. ("Citigroup-AMEC") which defendants allegedly caused damage to a substation underneath World Trade Center building 7, that substation being the property of a Lloyds' insuree, Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (�Con Ed�).
Lloyd's, with others, allege that Citigroup-AMEC was negligent in designing and installing the 7WTC water mains which ruptured and prevented firefighting and the 7WTC diesel generators, fuel lines and tanks which malfunctioned and fed fires causing an 'implosion' of the Con Ed substation.


We allege the Citigroup-AMEC partners sabotaged the diesel generators to feed fires lit by arsonists on the 11th, 12th or 13th floors of WTC7 where the Securities & Exchange Commission lost between 3,000 to 4,000 files. The SEC files contained evidence of insider trading by Citigroup-AMEC investment bank partners in the shares of initial public offerings during the high-tech boom. The House Financial Services Committee was seeking information about the treatment Citigroup's Salmon Smith Barney investing banking division may have given WorldCom executives. Salomon had offices in 7 World Trade Center and Citigroup says back-up tapes of corporate emails from September 1998 through December 2000 were stored at the building and destroyed in 9/11. Citigroup subsequently paid $2.65 billion to the settlement class which purchased WorldCom securities during the period from April 1999 through June 2002.

At 5:20 p.m. on 9/11, 7 World Trade Center collapsed in its own footprint at a speed slightly slower than free fall under gravity in a manner consistent with a controlled demolition. Molten steel and partially evaporated steel members were found in the debris pile of WTC #1, 2 and 7. The thermal signature of 32 hot spots, 5 days and 10 days after the collapse, is consistent with all the buildings being rigged for demolition with an incendiary such as thermite.

We allege that the Citigroup-AMEC partnership now conspired to remove and destroy evidence of arson before filing bogus property insurance claims in an arrangement with Larry Silverstein and Silverstein Properties, including a claim for a double payment for the destruction of the Twin Towers. "Griffin quotes court documents to the effect that Silverstein had only $14 million invested in the insurance deal for the Twin Towers (compared to 50 times as much by his [off-book] lenders) through limited liability investment vehicles."

Global Domination Through Fractional Capitalization

Global Domination Through Fractional Capitalization

In the last century thirteen families have evolved aside 8 banks with a plan to hold 95 percent of the worlds wealth. Through carefully orchestrated plans, third world sovereignty is being taken in the same way American�s lost sovereignty at Jekyll Island. Fueled by immense greed and fortune few stray the course.

Using the fractional banking system, where a small fraction of the amount of money a bank holds can be expanded 20 times in loans, these masters of deception have used greed, ignorance and escalating interest costs to cause the third world�s inability to stabilize as levers to pry the natural resources from the nations sovereignty.

In a lesson right out of a Rothshield biography, loans are made to a country that could never repay the debt, with the goal of obtaining the mineral rights. They did it in Spain in the early 1800�s with the quicksilver mines. Once this lesson was learned the idea held. Soon the Rothshields held much of the wealth of the Royals in the form of mineral and natural rights with right of way for their railroads. Just take the wealth and not the responsibility for the natives. A real conquest would entail the problem of financing the health and welfare of the peoples you conquered. Just taking the minerals and production is cutting right to the juice without having to care about the fruit or the trees. A true rape.

The broad outline is to allow massive debt to occur through fractional loans and offer a deal to forgive the loans and interest due. Any losses would be covered by USA subjects through their governance.

Right now the deal would entail the forgiving of all loan principal and interest due for the exchange of all natural resource rights in perpetuity, changing the national currency into a debit card based one that is hooked to a central national ID system. The 13 families through their 8 banks would control the systems.

One of the first third world nations to be offered such a deal was the Philippines. When Marcos refused the offer his government was toppled. Brazil and Argentina have announced plans they do not intend to repay loans and have released no information on the terms of that transaction. Other nations are announcing similar statements.


The following 8 family banks were named as the owners of the Federal Reserve:
1 Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin
2 Lazares Brothers Banks of Paris
3 Israel Moses Seif Bank of Italy
4 Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam
5 Lehman Brothers Bank of New York
6 Chase Manhattan Bank of New York
7 Kuhn, Loeb Bank of New York
8 Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York.


13 Family War Bank and Investor Central Bank Owners

1 Astor
2 Bundy
3 Collins
4 DuPont
5 Freeman
6 Kennedy
7 Li
8 Onassis
9 Reynolds
10 Rockefeller
11 Rothschild
12 Russell, and Van Duyn
13 Merovingian (European royals), Disney, Krupp, and McDonald are interconnected families.

Fractional Banking

Fractional reserve banking means that the bank is only required to hold on hand the small fraction of money (5%) that is needed to cover the fraction of deposits likely to be drawn upon and cashed. Moneys deposited in accounts go into a reserve upon which credit can be issued In the US credit can be issued to seven times the reserve, in international banks (off shore establishments) twenty times the reserve can be issued as credit.
