Bush: 'I'm the decision-maker' on Iraq 26 Jan 2007

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens for Legitimate Government 26 January 2007
All links to articles as summarized below are available here:
Bush: 'I'm the decision-maker' on Iraq 26 Jan 2007 Dictator Bush, on a collision course with Congress over Iraq, said Friday "I'm the decision-maker" about sending more troops to the war. The president [sic] had strong words for lawmakers on both sides of the aisle who are lining up to support resolutions opposing his decision to send 21,500 troops to Iraq. He challenged them to put up their own ideas. [*WHY* does Congress have to 'come up with their own ideas' to extricate BUSH from HIS mess? --LRP]

The World Agrees: Stop Bush Before He Kills Again --President [sic] Bush has accomplished what Osama bin Laden only dreamed of by disgracing the model of American democracy in the eyes of the world. By Robert Scheer 24 Jan 2007 Stop him before he kills again. That is the judgment of the American people, and indeed of the entire world, as to the performance of our president, and no State of the Union address can erase that dismal verdict.

Iran attack possible, says Cameron 26 Jan 2007 A pre-emptive military strike against Iran involving British troops could be launched under a Conservative government after David Cameron yesterday refused to rule out the use of force against the Gulf state. Mr Cameron said it would be wrong for a future Tory administration to rule out an attack on Iran.

Bush authorizes U.S. forces in Iraq to act against Iranians 26 Jan 2007 American soldiers will do what they must to protect themselves from Iranian agents operating inside Iraq, the White House said today, following a report that President [sic] Bush had authorized the killing of Iranian agents. But more questions about the campaign in Iraq, and in particular whether it includes a more aggressive approach to Iraq's neighbor Iran, seem certain following a report in The Washington Post today.

U.S. Troops Authorized to Kill Iranians In Iraq --New "kill or capture" program authorized by George W. Bush last fall 26 Jan 2007 The Bush regime has authorized the U.S. military to kill or capture Iranian 'operatives' inside Iraq, according to government and counterterrorism officials with direct knowledge of the effort. For more than a year, U.S. forces in Iraq have secretly detained dozens of suspected Iranian 'agents,' holding them for three to four days at a time. U.S. forces collected DNA samples from some of the Iranians without their knowledge, subjected others to retina scans, and fingerprinted and photographed all of them before letting them go.

Iran undeterred by psychological war: officials 20 Jan 2007 Iran's Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Ali Larijani yesterday played down what was described as the psychological warfare aimed at deterring Iran from its principle stand on gaining peaceful nuclear energy.

Iran Set to Try Space Launch 25 Jan 2007 Iran has converted one of its most powerful ballistic missile into a satellite launch vehicle. The 30-ton rocket could also be a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' for testing longer-range missile strike technologies, Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine reports in its Jan. 29 issue.

Iran demands UN nuclear inspector removed from country 26 Jan 2007 Iran has demanded the removal of the United Nations official overseeing nuclear inspections in the country, accusing him of breach of trust, and barred all inspectors from nations behind sanctions, diplomats said on Friday.

U.S. invasion was "idiot decision"-Iraq vice president 25 Jan 2007 The U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 was an "idiot decision" and Iraqi troops now need to secure Baghdad to ensure the country's future, Vice-President Adel Abdul Mahdi said on Thursday. "Iraq was put under occupation, which was an idiot decision," Mahdi said at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Chalabi has key role in Baghdad effort 25 Jan 2007 One of the Iraq government's critical tasks to pacify the country is to rein in the excesses of de-Baathification. The man in charge of the effort is Ahmad Chalabi, the controversial Iraqi Shiite expatriate [Pentagon troll] who formerly headed the Iraqi National Congress, lobbied hard for regime change, and was a key link in the chain of inaccurate intelligence about Saddam Hussein's alleged [nonexistent] weapons of mass destruction program.

Iraqi General: U.S. Can Withdraw by 2008 26 Jan 2007 The Iraqi army will have enough equipment and strength to allow most U.S. troops to withdraw by 2008 [in time for the US 'elections'], Iraq's army chief said Friday.

Top generals tell Congress 'surge' won't end soon 25 Jan 2007 Top military commanders told Congress this week they don't know when or if troop levels will go back down under the pResident's new plan to stabilize Iraq. Earlier this month, Multi-National Force-Iraq Commander Gen. George Casey suggested the 21,500 soldiers and Marines being sent to Iraq could be returned home as early as this summer if conditions improve.

Pelosi Says She Wasn't Consulted On Iraq 25 Jan 2007 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said yesterday that President [sic] George W. Bush did not consult her before announcing his new strategy for the war in Iraq — a sign that, despite the cozy rhetoric, the relationship between Washington's two powerhouses has already had its share of friction.

Feingold Pushes Plan to Cut Off War Funds 26 Jan 2007 Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., has scheduled a hearing next Tuesday in his Judiciary Committee subcommittee to explore whether Congress has the authority to cut off funding for the U.S. military campaign in Iraq.

Senate confirms Petraeus as US military commander in Iraq 26 Jan 2007 The US Senate, deeply skeptical about the White House strategy in Iraq, unanimously confirmed the nomination of Lieutenant General David Petraeus as commander of US forces deployed in the country.

Iraq crash killed key U.S. officers --A missile strike is suspected. 26 Jan 2007 Two colonels, a lieutenant colonel and two command sergeants major were among the 12 U.S. soldiers killed last weekend in the crash of a Black Hawk helicopter northeast of Baghdad, the Pentagon said. It appeared to be the largest number of key officers and command sergeants killed in a single incident since the Iraq war started nearly four years ago. The Army has said the cause of the crash is under investigation. But a Pentagon official has said debris indicates the helicopter was hit by a surface-to-air missile. Ten of the dead were members of the National Guard, making the crash the deadliest single combat incident for the Guard since at least the Korean War, said Mark Allen, a National Guard Bureau spokesman.

Top U.S. Surgeon in Iraq Killed in Crash 25 Jan 2007 The top U.S. surgeon in Iraq was among the 12 soldiers killed when a Black Hawk helicopter crashed near Baghdad, military officials said Thursday.

Soldiers killed in Karbala were first abducted --U.S. military earlier said they died 'repelling' the sneak attack 26 Jan 2007 Contrary to U.S. military statements, four U.S. soldiers did not die repelling a sneak attack at the governor's office in the Shiite holy city of Karbala last week. New information obtained by The Associated Press shows they were abducted and found dead or dying as far as 25 miles away. In a written statement, the U.S. command [*lied*] reported at the time that five soldiers were killed while "repelling the attack."

More US troops for Afghanistan 26 Jan 2007 The number of American troops in Afghanistan is to rise by 3,500 to tackle the expected spring offensive by the Taliban 'insurgency.' General David Richards, Nato commander in Afghanistan In addition, Condoleezza Rice, the US Secretary of State, announced last night an extra $10.6 billion in aid for Afghanistan [Halliburton, Blackwater USA] this year.

AP: Military gives police free equipment 26 Jan 2007 The Defense Department is giving away free equipment the military no longer needs to state and local police. About 16,000 departments obtained more than 380,000 pieces of equipment in the 2005 budget year, according to an analysis of data provided by the Pentagon at the request of The Associated Press. The program is administered by the Defense Logistic Agency. The military gives away only items it considers obsolete for its own use, parts that already have been replaced or are no longer needed in places such as Iraq.

US unveils 'heat gun' to quell rioters 26 Jan 2007 A ray gun that can blast out intense heat to control rioters and disable terrorists was unveiled by American military chiefs yesterday. Raytheon, the company which worked on it, hopes to create a multi-billion-pound world market. The US military said more than 10,000 people had been exposed to the weapon since testing began 12 years ago.

US military looks to 'black ice' 25 Jan 2007 The US military has appealed to scientists to help develop a novel weapon - artificial black ice. The plastic-like substance is brainchild of the US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa)... Researchers interested in joining the Polymer Ice Project [LOL!] are being invited to respond by the middle of April 2007.

Military Builds Robotic Insects 23 Jan 2007 Israel is developing a robot the size of a hornet to attack terrorists. And although the prototype will not fly for three years, killer Micro Air Vehicles, or MAVs, are much closer than that. British Special Forces already use 6-inch MAV aircraft called WASPs for reconnaissance in Afghanistan.

Italians Seize Ex-CIA Chief's Villa 26 Jan 2007 Magistrates have seized a villa in northern Italy belonging to a former CIA station chief who faces a possible indictment in the alleged kidnapping of an Egyptian cleric, officials said Friday. A preliminary hearing to decide whether to indict 26 Americans and five Italian intelligence officials on criminal charges continues Monday in Milan.

European Parliament Involved in CIA Actions 25 Jan 2007 European Union governments were aware of the secret CIA flights to transport terrorism suspects to clandestine prisons, states a report approved Tuesday by a European Parliament committee. The document makes clear that the United States has implemented extrajudicial detention in a systematic way. Likewise, it confirms the US has transported terrorism suspects to illegal offshore prisons for their interrogation.

'Europe was aware of secret CIA flights and abduction of suspects' 25 Jan 2007 Britain, Poland, Germany, Italy and other European Union countries were aware of secret CIA flights over Europe and the abduction of terror suspects by US agents, according to a report. The report, approved by a special committee of the European Parliament, also accused EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana and other high-ranking officials of not cooperating with the probe and not revealing all they know about the US secret detention programme.

Guantanamo conditions said worse 26 Jan 2007 Some Guantanamo Bay prisoners have been moved to a new wing where they face the worst conditions since their arrival, as interrogators make a last attempt to extract confessions, a U.S. lawyer said on Friday... "Entire cans of Mace have been sprayed in prisoners' faces. Prisoners are being denied medical care unless they give information to interrogators," U.S. lawyer, Zachary Katznelson, said.

Hicks' men Cuba-bound but lack belief they will be seen 26 Jan 2007 David Hicks' Australian and American lawyers will fly to Cuba on Sunday, hoping the Australian Guantanamo Bay detainee will be well enough to see them. David's father, Terry Hicks, said he regretted being unable to send the latest novel by Tasmanian author Richard Flanagan, which was dedicated to Hicks and came with a handwritten note from Flanagan to Hicks to "Hang in there, mate". Mr Hicks said the book, The Unknown Terrorist, would never get security clearance.

Canadian government to apologise to Arar 26 Jan 2007 Canada will formally apologise on Friday to software engineer Maher Arar, who was deported to Syria by U.S. agents after Canadian police mistakenly labelled him an Islamic extremist, and offer him C$10 million (4.3 million pounds) compensation, according to news media reports.

Republican: government to review scripts before filming begins 26 Jan 2007 (NC) Citing the controversy surrounding the film Hounddog, the leader of the state Senate Republicans says he wants the government to review scripts before cameras start rolling in North Carolina. That system, said state Sen. Phil Berger, R-GOPedophile-Rockingham, would apply only to films seeking the state's lucrative filmmaker incentive, which refunds as much as 15 percent of what productions spend in North Carolina from the state treasury. "Why should North Carolina taxpayers pay for something they find objectionable?" said Berger, who is having proposed legislation drafted.

Gonzales Appointment of U.S. Attorney Challenged 24 Jan 2007 A Little Rock attorney has filed a motion to declare Tim Griffin's appointment last month as U. S. attorney for the Eastern District of Arkansas unconstitutional. John Wesley Hall Jr. said in a 16-page motion filed Tuesday that Griffin's appointment last month by U. S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales violates Article II, Section 2, of the U. S. Constitution, which covers presidential appointments. He said it also violates a section of the U. S. Code altered last year during Congressional reauthorization of the USAPATRIOT Act.

'Plaintiffs and judges' clerks cannot see its secret filings.' Secrecy Is at Issue in Suits Opposing Domestic Spying 26 Jan 2007 The Bush regime has employed extraordinary secrecy in defending the National Security Agency's highly classified domestic surveillance program from civil lawsuits. Plaintiffs and judges' clerks cannot see its secret filings. Judges have to make appointments to review them and are not allowed to keep copies. Judges have even been instructed to use computers provided by the Justice Department to compose their decisions. But now the procedures have started to meet resistance.

Maine revolts against digital U.S. ID card 25 Jan 2007 Maine lawmakers on Thursday became the first in the nation to demand repeal of a federal law tightening identification requirements for drivers' licenses, a post-September 11 security measure that states say will cost them billions of dollars to administer.

NSA electricity crisis gets Senate scrutiny 26 Jan 2007 The National Security Agency's impending electricity shortfall is "sort of a national catastrophe," Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said yesterday.

Spiked Study Leads to New FCC Query 25 Jan 2007 ...The Federal Communications Commission also realized they had turned up what one of the researchers, economist Keith Brown, called "inconvenient facts." The findings were at odds with what their agency, under heavy lobbying from the broadcast industry, had endorsed. The months-long study was spiked by the agency with "no plausible explanation," Brown says. He suspects it was because the conclusions were at odds with the shared position of the FCC and the broadcast industry: that media ownership rules were too restrictive and should be loosened.

U.N. climate report will shock the world - chairman 25 Jan 2007 A forthcoming U.N. report on climate change will provide the most credible evidence yet of a human link to global warming and hopefully shock the world into taking more action, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said on Thursday.

First Polar Bear Born in Berlin Zoo in 30 Years 23 Jan 2007 Berlin Zoo is delighted at the birth of Knut, the first polar bear to be born in the animal park in over 30 years. The polar bears in Berlin Zoo may be having trouble getting to sleep as unseasonably warm weather interferes with their hibernation schedule, but one little bear is just happy to be alive.

[25 Jan lead stories:] Scientists tighten security over germ terror threat --MI5 issues warning to universities and labs 25 Jan 2007 Britain's laboratories have been ordered to strengthen security on stocks of more than 100 deadly viruses and bacteria after an MI5 warning that 'Islamic terrorists' [US bioterrorists] are training in germ warfare. The biological agents include polio, rabies, tuberculosis and avian flu. Scientists and laboratory staff in universities, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies who deal with agents will have to be vetted by police, and their laboratories will be checked by government safety inspectors... The crackdown comes after MI5 privately warned the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that 'al-Qaeda' was actively recruiting scientists. [But as we know, and as the CLG has been documenting for two years, it is the US Army that is reconstructing the deadly 1918 flu, to foment bioterror. The U.S. is going to engineer and unleash the pandemic and then blame 'al-Qaeda.' --LRP]

Bush preparing to play the bioterror card and declare martial law in time for the 2008 'elections:' U.S. not scared enough of bird flu, Senate told 24 Jan 2007 Bird flu poses as big a threat to the world as ever, and people need to worry about it more, U.S. senators and health leaders agreed on Wednesday. The H5N1 avian flu virus could cause a human pandemic at any time, killing perhaps millions, yet preparations are slow, they told a Senate hearing. [See: Scientists Recreate 1918 Flu and See Parallels to Bird Flu --In 2005, U.S. Army scientists reconstructed Spanish flu virus by extracting genetic fragments from the bodies of victims exhumed from the Alaskan permafrost. 18 Jan 2007]

U.S. to Seek $10.6B for Afghanistan 25 Jan 2007 President [sic] Bush will ask Congress for $10.6 billion to help Afghanistan strengthen its security forces and rebuild [Halliburton, Blackwater USA] from years of [US] war, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Thursday. The money would be on top of $14.2 billion in aid the United States has already given to Afghanistan since the U.S.-led invasion in 2001 that toppled [installed] the Taliban.

H. CON. RES. 40

Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not
engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with
Mexico and Canada.


January 22, 2007

Mr. GOODE (for himself, Mr. WAMP, Mr. JONES of North Carolina, Mr.
PAUL, Mr. STEARNS, Mr. DUNCAN, and Ms. FOXX) submitted the following
concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on
Transportation and Infrastructure, and in addition to the Committee
on Foreign Affairs, for a period to be subsequently determined by the
Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall
within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned


Expressing the sense of Congress that the United States should not
engage in the construction of a North American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA) Superhighway System or enter into a North American Union with
Mexico and Canada.

Whereas the United States Departments of State, Commerce, and
Homeland Security participated in the formation of the Security and
Prosperity Partnership (SPP) on March 23, 2005, representing a tri-
lateral agreement between the United States, Canada, and Mexico
designed, among other things, to facilitate common regulatory schemes
between these countries;

Whereas reports issued by the SPP indicate that it has implemented
regulatory changes among the three countries that circumvent United
States trade, transportation, homeland security, and border security
functions and that the SPP will continue to do so in the future;

Whereas the actions taken by the SPP to coordinate border security by
eliminating obstacles to migration between Mexico and the United
States actually makes the United States-Mexico border less secure
because Mexico is the primary source country of illegal immigrants
into the United States;

Whereas according to the Department of Commerce, United States trade
deficits with Mexico and Canada have significantly increased since
the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement

Whereas the economic and physical security of the United States is
impaired by the potential loss of control of its borders attendant to
the full operation of NAFTA and the SPP;

Whereas the regulatory and border security changes implemented and
proposed by the SPP violate and threaten United States sovereignty;

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System from the west coast of Mexico
through the United States and into Canada has been suggested as part
of a North American Union to facilitate trade between the SPP

Whereas the State of Texas has already begun planning of the Trans-
Texas Corridor, a major multi-modal transportation project beginning
at the United States-Mexico border, which would serve as an initial
section of a NAFTA Superhighway System;

Whereas it could be particularly difficult for Americans to collect
insurance from Mexican companies which employ Mexican drivers
involved in accidents in the United States, which would likely
increase the insurance rates for American drivers;

Whereas future unrestricted foreign trucking into the United States
can pose a safety hazard due to inadequate maintenance and
inspection, and can act collaterally as a conduit for the entry into
the United States of illegal drugs, illegal human smuggling, and
terrorist activities; and

Whereas a NAFTA Superhighway System would likely include funds from
foreign consortiums and be controlled by foreign management, which
threatens the sovereignty of the United States: Now, therefore, be

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),

(1) the United States should not engage in the construction of a
North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Superhighway System;

(2) the United States should not allow the Security and Prosperity
Partnership (SPP) to implement further regulations that would create
a North American Union with Mexico and Canada; and

(3) the President of the United States should indicate strong
opposition to these acts or any other proposals that threaten the
sovereignty of the United States.

CNN Interviews Christopher Bollyn, 9/11 Researcher
CNN sent a team from New York City to Chicago to interview
Christopher Bollyn, 9/11 researcher and independent journalist, at
the Schaumburg Township District Library on January 23, 2007.

Bollyn was interviewed for more than two hours
by reporter Deborah Feyerick for a piece being produced by Sheila
Steffen. The segment is expected to air at the end of the current
week. Bollyn was told that the section of the program with his
comments should be about 3 and a half minutes in length.
The CNN interviewers were very interested in knowing why Bollyn did
not believe the official version. They were also keenly interested in
why he thinks agents of the state of Israel were involved in the
terror attacks on the World Trade Center.
Bollyn explained that the fact that Israel-based employees of Odigo
had received instant text messages warning of the WTC attacks hours
before they occurred and that these warnings had been accurate "to
the minute" indicated that some Israelis (including employees of the
Mossad-linked company) had clearly been forewarned.
"To have prior knowledge of a crime like 9/11 indicates
involvement," Bollyn said.
Odigo had its U.S. headquarters a few blocks from the twin towers
of the WTC. Had the Odigo warnings of an imminent attack been passed
on to the authorities in New York City, thousands of lives could have
been saved.
The CNN team was also very interested in the 5 "dancing Israelis"
who were arrested in New Jersey after having been observed
videotaping and celebrating the attacks on the twin towers.
Bollyn explained that he had investigated the story of the dancing
Israelis through Paolo Lima, the New Jersey-based reporter who had
followed the story in the days after 9/11. When it was reported by
Lima in 2001 that the 5 men, who pretended to be movers, were Israeli
citizens who had been caught with a van that tested positive for
explosives, multiple passports, thousands of dollars in cash, and box
cutters, Bollyn raised the question that they could be working for
Israeli intelligence. The men also reportedly had been wearing Middle
Eastern clothing to give the appearance that they were Arabs.
Months later, Urban Moving Systems, the fake moving company that
the men "worked" for was exposed to be a Mossad front company based
on information provided to the Forward newspaper of New York City.
Dominic Suter, the head of the Weehawken, NJ-based Mossad front
company, fled the United States immediately after 9/11 before the FBI
could interview him.
After being released from U.S. custody, the 5 Israeli agents
returned to Israel where they appeared on a popular television show
and openly explained that their "purpose" had been sent to "document
the event."
This admission certainly indicates prior knowledge of the attacks,
which is proof of involvement.
See: "The Likud Criminal Gang Behind 9/11 and the War on Terror"

Here is the video excerpt of the Israelis' admission on TV:
The CNN interviewer repeatedly asked Bollyn, "Who did it?"
Bollyn responded, "I wish I knew," and described the 9/11 terror
attack as "an unsolved crime." He explained that he does not
speculate and works from evidence and information he comes across.
Most recently, for example, he has been investigating the evidence
that Thermate was used in the World Trade Center attack and
The CNN program will also include interviews with critics of Bollyn
from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and the Southern Poverty Law
Center. The ADL, for example, has often labeled Bollyn as an anti-
Semite, which is not true.
Knowing that the mainstream media is generally hostile to 9/11
skeptics and independent researchers, Bollyn, a scholar of Middle
Eastern history, explained that there is a fundamental difference
between Zionism and Judaism.
"There are Jews who are not Zionists and there are Zionists who are
not Jews," he said.
If elements of Israeli intelligence were involved in the attacks of
9/11, he said, that would be very unfortunate but it should have no
bearing on innocent Jews anywhere in the world. The state of Israel
claims to represent the Jews of the world, whether they support
Zionism or not.
Bollyn, who has lived in Israel and the Middle East, explained that
while elements of the Israeli state appear to have been involved in
the events of 9/11, they are from the most extreme right-wing group
of revisionist Zionism. Many of the current officials in the
government of the state of Israel are the sons and daughters of the
terrorist Irgun organization of Vladimir Jabotinsky, the people who
first brought terrorism to the Middle East and the world stage in the
Asked why 9/11 would have been done by Zionists, Bollyn said that
as the "New Pearl Harbor," 9/11 had been carried out to sway public
opinion and usher in the on-going War on Terror.
This so-called War on Terror, he said, was first promoted publicly
by the former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his book,
Terrorism: How the West Can Win, in 1986.
The current U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan are
exactly what Netanyahu called for in his book. The Bush
administration has followed the agenda of Netanyahu's war on terror
in the Middle East to the letter since coming to office in 2001. This
policy, Bollyn said, is disastrous for the U.S., the region, world
peace, and ultimately, even for the Jews.
Ehud Olmert, the current Israeli prime minister, is a financial
crook and a war criminal, Bollyn said. He was the co-defendant, with
Menachem Atzmon, in a criminal financial scheme to raise funds in the
United States and elsewhere for the Likud party when he was treasurer
of the party in the late 1980s.
While both men were involved in the scheme, Atzmon was convicted
while Olmert was acquitted. Olmert went on to become the mayor of
Jerusalem while Atzmon became a "security expert" at U.S. and
European airports as the CEO of his "security" company, International
Consultants of Targeted Security (ICTS).
On 9/11, Olmert's old political ally and co-defendant Atzmon was
the owner of Huntleigh USA, the company that provided passenger
screening and security services at Boston's Logan airport and the
airport of Newark, New Jersey.

opinions or allow him to be smeared as an anti-Semite.

Stop him before he kills again
What is this all about? Bush is reportedly going to send more troops
to Iraq for a "surge," "bump," or "escalation," depending upon who
you talk to and when. He is going to do this in spite of the fact
that only 11% of Americans are in favor of doing this, virtually all
of the Generals are not in favor (he is removing the ones that don't
cooperate), the Democratic majorities are opposed, as are many
Republicans. So what is he up to? Even though I have been convinced
for years that he is marginally retarded, he must be aware that what
he is doing is insane. Or is it? I think he is actually maneuvering
himself into a situation in which whatever happens he (at least in
some sense) "wins." Think about it. If Democrats or others oppose
sending or funding this so-called "surge" he will be able to blame
them when the miserable Iraq failure becomes too obvious to cover up.
On the other hand, if he gets the troops, he can prolong the "war"
until the next election at which time he
can just dump the failure onto someone else's watch. Clever, no?
This is more likely Rove or Cheney's idea than Bush's but he is,
after all, the front man for this political con game. And make no
mistake about it, this isn't about "war," it's about politics.
Bush/Cheney and the neocons are using our troops for their own
political ends.

I was wondering why Negroponte, who has arguably one of the most
important posts in the Administration (head of all intelligence
units) would resign to become an Assistant Secretary of State under
Condi Rice. This made no sense to me. Stephen Pizzo, in an article
entitled "White House Chess," (in Smirking Chimp), has come up with a
speculation that makes perfect sense even if it may prove to be
pretty unbelievable. Pizzo argues that the only reason Negroponte
would agree to this is because he wants to become Secretary of State.
The scenario goes as follows: Cheney will resign for reasons of
health, Bush will appoint Condi as Vice President. Negroponte will
become Secretary of State. Pizzo offers perfectly good reasons why
this might happen that I do not wish to review here. I urge you to
read his article. Remember, this is only speculation. But it is well
worth watching.

Keith Olberman made an impassioned comment about Bush's idea
of "sacrifice." If you didn't see it, or haven't yet seen it, you can
find a video of it on Truthout. It is powerful and well worth

Bush is supposed to announce next week what his plan is for "moving
forward" (more accurately described as "staying the course") in Iraq.
With virtually the entire world opposed to sending in more troops
will he actually do it? And if he does what does that tell us about
his opinion of anyone but himself? There is a deep psychological
problem here such that reason, common sense, empathy, and even basic
human values have no place. Bush, I believe, is not only marginally
retarded but a genuine sociopath. Can no one or anything stop him
before he kills again?

Dennis Kucinich is absolutely right. Cut off any funding for this
phony "war" other than those funds needed to bring our troops home
safely. Is anyone listening? Perhaps the Pelosi/Reid letter is just
the first "shot across the bow." I sincerely hope so.

Fwd: End Corporate Control Over Our Media By Sen. Bernie Sanders:

End Corporate Control Over Our Media By Sen. Bernie Sanders:
Bernie Sanders speaking at the National Conference for Media Reform.

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: We have already taken a giant step forward in
transforming our country, because what we have done -- and the size
of this conference indicates our success -- we have begun the long
road to make media a major political issue in America. And more and
more, in campaigns and in non-campaigns, when people who are running
for office go before the public and, as been mentioned, when they
talk about healthcare or the environment or the dozens of other
important issues, somebody in the front of the room is going to raise
their hand and say, "Well, what do you think about corporate control
over the media? What are you going to do about that?" So, to the
degree that we have already raised consciousness on this issue, we
should be very proud. But, obviously, we know that we still have a
very, very long way to go.

I happen to believe that we are reaching a moment when critical mass
is kicking in. Because of your efforts, because of a growing
grassroots movement all over America, what I can tell you is that not
only in the House is there a media caucus where this issue is now
going to reach a higher level than ever before, I can tell you that
it's going to happen in the Senate, as well. I can also tell you,
absolutely, that we will not succeed unless you are there, unless
there is a strong grassroots media, which demands fundamental changes
in media today and the end of corporate control over our media. We've
got to work together on that.

Now, you are going to hear from a lot of folks who know more about
the details of the media than I do, but what I do know a lot about is
how media impacts the political process, what media means for those
of us who day after day struggle with the major issues facing our
country and a goal of trying to improve the quality of life for all
of our people.

And I want to spend just a minute in telling you what I suspect most
of you already know. If you are concerned, as been said, about
healthcare, if you are concerned about foreign policy and Iraq, if
you are concerned about the economy, if you are concerned about
global warming, you are kidding yourselves if you are not concerned
about corporate control over the media, because every one of these
issues is directly controlled and directly relevant to the media.

Let me just talk about a few. Four years ago, George W. Bush told the
American people that a third-rate military power country called Iraq
had weapons of mass destruction and that they were about to attack
the United States of America. That's what he told us. I can tell you,
because I was there in the middle of that, in opposition to that --
that day after day, those of us who oppose the war, among many other
things, would be holding national press conferences that you never
saw. I can tell you, as you know, that hundreds of thousands of
people in our country were so disgusted with the media simply acting
as a megaphone for the President that they turned off American media,
and they went to the BBC or the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

In terms of the war in Iraq, the American media failed, and failed
grotesquely, in exposing the dishonest and misleading assertions of
the Bush administration in the lead-up to that war, and they are as
responsible as is President Bush for the disaster that now befalls
us. Media plays a role. And the disintegration of Iraq, the death of
hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, of over 3,000 Americans, the cost of
hundreds of billons of dollars out of our pockets -- directly related
to the failure of the media.

Let me touch on another issue, an issue that I am deeply involved in.
If you were to ask me what the most significant untold story of our
time is, in terms of domestic politics, I would tell you very simply
that that story happens to be the collapse of the American middle
class. Simply stated -- I don't want to speak at great length on it,
but simply stated, despite an explosion of technology, huge increase
in worker productivity, tens of millions of our fellow Americans have
seen a decline in their real wages and are working longer hours for
lower wages. In fact, what you probably don't know is that the
working people in our country work longer hours than do the working
people in any other industrialized nation on earth.

How did that happen? How did it happen today that a two-income family
has less disposal income than a one-income family did thirty years
ago? How does it happen that thirty years ago, one person working
forty hours a week could earn enough money to take care of the
family; now, you need two, and they're still not doing it? Now, one
might think that this is an interesting story. One might think that
globalization and disastrous trade policies, which have lowered the
standard of living of millions of American workers, might be a story
that should be covered.

What I can tell you is that when NAFTA was first passed over ten
years ago -- and I strongly opposed NAFTA -- we did some research. We
did some research. We went through the editorial pages of every major
newspaper in America, every single one of them was prone after, and
today, despite a $600 billion trade deficit, the loss of millions of
good-paying blue-collar and white-collar jobs, these corporate titans
are still in favor of unfettered free trade, despite the disastrous
impact it has had on America's workers.

Now, what is all of this about? What happens? If the reality of
working people's lives are not reflected in the TV, in the
newspapers, what happens? This is what happens. People lose their
jobs, because corporations shut down. Just had an instance in Vermont
this week. 175 workers shut down, lost their jobs, because of free

People working long hours, people working for lower wages, they turn
on the television set, they do not see that reality. What they see is
the issue is personal responsibility. You can't afford healthcare?
You're losing your pension? Then the problem is with you. Work a
little bit harder. It is not a systemic problem. It is not a problem
that can be solved by government. It is not a problem which asked you
to be involved in the political process. You are the only person who
can find a job that pays you a living wage. That's your fault! And
you are the only person who can't find a job that provides you with
healthcare. That's your fault! And you're the only father who can't
afford to send your kid to college. That's your fault! Don't get
involved in the political process. It won't do any good. So people
turn on the television -- they're hurting, they're exhausted -- they
do not see a reflection of their reality in the media. They do not
understand that participation in the political process can bring
about change, and that is not by accident.

When we wake up in the morning and we brush our teeth, for better or
worse, we see our own reflections in the mirror. When we turn on the
television, somebody is providing us a mirror to the world, and what
we want is that mirror to reflect the reality of ordinary people and
not the illusions of a few.
AMY GOODMAN: More with Independent Senator Bernie Sanders after
AMY GOODMAN: We return to the Vermont Independent Senator Bernie
Sanders, speaking at the National Conference for Media Reform in
Memphis, Tennessee.

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Talk about healthcare. We are told that it is
quite amazing. After sixteen years in the Congress, you hear these
guys getting up on the floor announce, "We have the best healthcare
system in the world. Yeah!" 47 million Americans have no health
insurance. Even more are underinsured. We pay the highest prices in
the world for prescription drugs. Costs are soaring. Best healthcare
system in the world.

But, you know, go out on the street and ask people how many major
countries in the world do not have a national healthcare program,
which guarantees healthcare to all people. And you know what? Most
people do not know, because they have not seen it reflected in the
media, that the United States of America is the only nation on earth
that does not guarantee healthcare to all of its people. They do not
know about the healthcare systems in Scandinavia. They do not know
about European healthcare systems. And the only thing they will hear
about the Canadian healthcare system are the problems that that
system has. That's what they will hear.

I can remember in the early 1990s, during the early years of the
Clinton administration, there was a lot of debate about the need for
real healthcare reform. Do you happen to know which piece of
legislation in the House had far more support than any other concept?
You probably don't. It was legislation to support a single-payer
national healthcare system. That's a fact. But, as somebody who was
involved in that fight, we would turn on the television and
say, "Hey, single payer has more support than any other concept. Are
you going to talk about single payer?" "Oh, no, no. We don't talk
about single payer. It's not feasible." Virtually no coverage about
what a single-payer concept is about. Virtually no coverage about
international healthcare and how other countries are doing a better
job than we are doing.

In terms of the environment. In terms of the environment, if we are
told over and over again that there is a serious scientific debate
about the causation of global warming or whether global warming
actually exists, it has an impact upon our consciousness. Why should
we break our dependency on fossil fuels, why should we move to
sustainable energy, if there is a debate among the scientific
community? And that is, in fact, what you hear in the media. Well,
you know what? There is no debate among the scientific community.

Now, here's an issue that I'm sure you see on the TV almost every
night -- it probably bores you, you see it so much -- and that is
that the United States today has the most unfair distribution of
wealth and income of any major country on earth. I was joking. You
don't see that on television very often. Now, here is at issue, you
know, which is of enormous significance from an economic point of
view, as well as a political point of view, as well as a moral point
of view. Richest 1% of the population in America owns more wealth
than the bottom 90%. Richest 13,000 families earn more income than do
the bottom 20 million families. In many ways, in my view, we are
moving toward an oligarchic form of society. Do you think that maybe
this is an issue that should be thrown out there on the table? Do we
think it's a good idea that so few have so much and so many have so
little? But that is an issue that is beyond the scope of what
establishment media is literally allowed to discuss.

Now, I have been in politics for a long time. I have been asked a
thousand questions by media. Not one member of the media has ever
come up to me and said, "Bernie, what are you going to do to deal
with the outrage of America having the most unfair distribution of
wealth of any country on earth? What are you going to do about it?"
Have you ever heard any political leader ever being asked that
question? Why not? Why is that issue outside of the scope of what we
are allowed to talk about?

AMY GOODMAN: Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, speaking
at the National Conference for Media Reform. It took place last
weekend in Memphis, Tennessee.

"Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will
have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in
a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government." --- James

"Right now, it is easier for us to embrace the status quo, than it is
to take a different course - we as a people see these alternative
courses of actions as more painful than the status quo - but someday
the status quo will be more painful and difficult than the change and
then we will embrace the change. People change when they are ready to
change - when it is time to change - the same can be said for the
masses." "America does not need a Regime Change, America needs a
Regime Removal."

[Fwd: Senate Panel Votes Against Bush on Iraq 24 Jan 2007]

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens for Legitimate Government 24 January 2007
All links to articles as summarized below are available here:
Senate Panel Votes Against Bush on Iraq 24 Jan 2007 The Democratic-controlled Senate Foreign Relations Committee dismissed President [sic] Bush's plans to increase troops strength in Iraq on Wednesday as "not in the national interest," an unusual wartime repudiation of the commander-in-chief [thief].

'There is no strategy.' Senators start rebuke of Iraq strategy 24 Jan 2007 Democrats took the first step toward a wartime repudiation of President [sic] George W. Bush today, convening a Senate committee to endorse legislation declaring that the deployment of additional troops to Iraq is "not in the national interest." Sen. Chuck Hagel, of Nebraska, is the only Republican on the committee to announce support for the measure. "There is no strategy," said Hagel of the Bush regime's war management. "This is a Ping-Pong game with American lives... And we better be damn sure we know what we're doing, all of us, before we put 22,000 more Americans into that grinder."

Senate panel debates rejection of troop increase 24 Jan 2007 Brushing aside President [sic] George W. Bush's plea to give his new war strategy a chance, Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Senate moved ahead on Wednesday with a resolution opposing his plan to send more troops to Iraq.

4 Americans in Iraq Crash Shot in Head 24 Jan 2007 Four of the five Americans [mercenaries] killed when a Blackwater USA helicopter crashed in a Sunni neighborhood in central Baghdad were shot execution style in the back the head, Iraqi and U.S. officials said Wednesday. The helicopter was shot down after responding to assist a U.S. Embassy ground convoy that came under fire, said a U.S. diplomatic official in Washington. A second helicopter also was struck, but there were no casualties among its crew, said the diplomatic official...

Iraq Channel 4 News exclusive By Jon Snow 24 Jan 2007 Not only does our footage show the active ethnic cleansing of both Sunnis and Shi'as daubing paint on doors to identify people who need to be driven out but it also shows fire-fights between ethnic groups and worse. We also see a joint patrol of US and Iraqi troops in Baghdad, where our camera captures the pretty brutal treatment meted out by the newly trained Iraqi soldiers to three suspected insurgents caught in a car, all to the accompaniment of laughter, whoops and egging on from the US soldiers who watch from their Humvee. We now know that the incident is regarded as sufficiently serious for the US sergeant who was present to be suspended pending further investigation.

Scant evidence found of Iran-Iraq arms link --U.S. warnings of advanced weaponry crossing the border are overstated, critics say. 23 Jan 2007 For all its aggressive rhetoric regarding Iranian networks providing "advanced weaponry and training to our enemies," however, the Bush administration has provided scant evidence to support these claims. Nor have reporters traveling with U.S. troops seen extensive signs of Iranian involvement... British officials have similarly accused Iran of meddling in Iraqi affairs, but say they have not found Iranian-made weapons in areas they patrol.

Russia completes Iran missile deliveries: Tass 23 Jan 2007 Russia has completed a contract to deliver its TOR-M1 anti-aircraft missile systems to Iran, Itar-Tass news agency quoted Sergei Chemezov, head of state arms exporter Rosoboronexport as saying on Tuesday.

President [sic] Bush's State of the Disunion Address 23 Jan 2007 Tonight I ask the Congress to authorize an increase in the size of our active Army and Marine Corps by 92,000 in the next five years. A second task we can take on together is to design and establish a volunteer Civilian Reserve Corps [Waffen-SS]. Such a corps would function much like our military reserve. It would ease the burden on the Armed Forces by allowing us to hire civilians with critical skills to serve on missions abroad when America needs them.

Give war a chance: Bush 24 Jan 2007 US President [sic] George Bush today urged a rebellious Congress to give his new Iraq war plan a chance, insisting it was not too late to shape the outcome. Facing defiant lawmakers and the weakest approval ratings of his six years in office, Mr Bush said the best chance for success was to send 21,500 additional US troops to Iraq.

Off the Rails: Big Oil, Big Brother Win Big in the State of the Union By Greg Palast 24 Jan 2007 Instead of unleashing the Reserve and busting Big Oil's price gouging [George W.] Bush will double the Reserve, which will require buying three-quarters of a billion barrels of oil. This is a nice $40 billion pay-out to Big Oil from the US Treasury... But the $40 billion in loot the oilmen will get from us taxpayers for doubling the Reserve is nothing compared to the boost in the worldwide price of crude caused by this massive, mad purchase... Clearly, the state of the Saudi-Bush union is still pretty good.

Democratic Response of Senator Jim Webb to the pResident's State of the Disunion Address 23 Jan 2007 The President [sic] took us into this war recklessly... We are now, as a nation, held hostage to the predictable ­ and predicted ­ disarray that has followed... Regarding the economic imbalance in our country, I am reminded of the situation President Theodore Roosevelt faced in the early days of the 20th century. America was then, as now, drifting apart along class lines. The so-called robber barons were unapologetically raking in a huge percentage of the national wealth. The dispossessed workers at the bottom were threatening revolt. ['We want either a hammer or a fire, to break the spell or dissolve the ice.' Artisan radical freethinker, George Jacob Holyoake, Reasoner V (1848): 2.]

'Tonight we are calling on this president to take similar action. … If he does, we will join him. If he does not, we will be showing him the way.' Sen. Webb: Congress may show way on Iraq 23 Jan 2007 While President [sic] Bush urged opponents of his planned troop increase in Iraq to give it a chance to see if it works, the Democrats turned to an old soldier Tuesday night to hammer away at the president's war strategy. "The president took us into this war recklessly," said Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.), the Vietnam War veteran and opponent of the invasion who delivered the party's televised response to Bush's State of the Union speech. "The majority of the nation no longer supports the way this war is being fought; nor does the majority of our military, nor does Congress. We need a new direction."

General: Bigger Army will cost $70 billion 24 Jan 2007 Increasing the size of the Army, strained by America's two ongoing wars, will cost an estimated $70 billion, a top Army general said Tuesday. And if yet another conflict were to develop before the force can be bolstered, it would take longer to fight and cost more American casualties than otherwise might be expected, said Lt. Gen. Stephen Speakes, a deputy chief of staff.

U.S. Launches New Strikes In Somalia --Air Attacks Earlier This Week Carried Out In Secret 24 Jan 2007 U.S. special forces have once again attacked 'terrorist' targets in Somalia - their second air strike in two weeks, CBS News has learned.

'I was set up by White House to shield aide' 24 Jan 2007 A key aide to Vice President [sic] Dick Cheney was "set up" by the White House over the leaking of a CIA operative's identity as a way of protecting President [sic] George W Bush's chief adviser, a court heard yesterday. The explosive allegation that the White House plotted to shield Karl Rove, Mr Bush's long-time strategist, was made, as the trial opened, by the lawyer defending Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Mr Cheney's former chief of staff.

'You can't learn something startling on Thursday that you are giving out on Monday or Tuesday.' Ex-White House aide 'stole the truth' in CIA leak case: prosecutor 23 Jan 2007 Former top White House aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby lied "repeatedly" to investigators probing the leak of a CIA agent's name, a prosecutor [Patrick Fitzgerald] said in a politically sensitive trial.

EU committee slams Irish complicity in CIA 'torture flights' 23 Jan 2007 The Irish Government is coming for more severe criticism today over the use of Shannon Airport by planes involved in the Bush regime's rendition [kidnapping] programme. In a report out today, a European Parliament committee investigating the so-called "torture flights" says thousands have crossed through EU airspace and landed at EU airports in recent years. Ireland is named as one of the worst offenders.

Ministers 'knew about rendition flights' 24 Jan 2007 European governments, including Britain, knew about secret CIA flights across the continent, MEPs concluded yesterday, as they lambasted politicians and senior officials for failing to co-operate with an inquiry into secret US renditions.

Gonzales says the Constitution doesn't guarantee habeas corpus --Attorney general's remarks on citizens' right astound the chair of Senate judiciary panel 24 Jan 2007 One of the Bush regime's most far-reaching assertions of government power was revealed quietly last week when Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified that habeas corpus -- the right to go to federal court and challenge one's imprisonment -- is not protected by the Constitution. "The Constitution doesn't say every individual in the United States or every citizen is hereby granted or assured the right of habeas,'' Gonzales told Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Jan. 17... Specter was incredulous, asking how the Constitution could bar the suspension of a right that didn't exist -- a right, he noted, that was first recognized in medieval England as a shield against the king's power to dispatch troublesome subjects to royal dungeons.

Let's Impeach Alberto Gonzales NOW By Bob Fertik 18 Jan 2007 Impeaching Alberto Gonzales is a no-brainer for Democrats purely on the merits: Gonzales is at the center of Bush's crimes, including authorizing torture and illegal wiretapping (which wasn't restricted at all by Gonzales' announcement that a FISA judge mysteriously approved the illegal program.) Sign Petition to Impeach Alberto Gonzales by

'There is no war on terror' --DPP takes on Blair and Reid over fear-driven legal response to threat 24 Jan 2007 The director of public prosecutions, Sir Ken Macdonald, put himself at odds with the home secretary and Downing Street last night by denying that Britain is caught up in a "war on terror" and calling for a "culture of legislative restraint" in passing laws to deal with terrorism. Sir Ken warned of the pernicious risk that a "fear-driven and inappropriate" response to the threat could lead Britain to abandon respect for fair trials and the due process of law.

'Surrender to nihilism' CPS chief warns MPs over terror threat to human rights 23 Jan 2007 Politicians who seek to water down human rights protections were sent a strong warning by the director of public prosecutions tonight. Sir Ken Macdonald said the terrorist threat must not tempt democracies into undermining their own values, and suggested that abandoning fair trials in terror cases would be a "surrender to nihilism". The head of the Crown Prosecution Service also renewed his calls for intercept evidence such as telephone tapping to become admissible evidence in court.

Huge majority say civil liberty curbs a 'price worth paying' to fight terror --Research finds most support compulsory ID cards, with phone tapping, curfews and tagging for suspects 24 Jan 2007 An overwhelming majority of people in Britain are willing to surrender civil liberties to help tackle the threat of terrorism, the nation's leading social research institute will disclose today. The survey found seven in every 10 people think compulsory identity cards for all adults would be "a price worth paying" to reduce the threat of terrorism. Eight in 10 say the authorities should be able to tap the phones of people suspected of involvement in terrorism, open their mail and impose electronic tagging or home curfews.

Loss of liberty is price for fighting terrorism 24 Jan 2007 A strong commitment to civil liberties, once considered a defining British characteristic, has weakened dramatically over the past 20 years, a survey found. More people than ever are prepared to see freedoms that used to be taken for granted, such as free speech and the right to protest, dispensed with... Nearly half those questioned thought denying people a jury trial was "a price worth paying" to tackle terrorism, though without explaining how it would.

Anti-terrorism police arrest five men in UK 24 Jan 2007 Police arrested five men in northern England under the country's security laws in two separate operations today. "This is not about bomb-making or planting bombs," a police source said, adding the men were suspected of being involved in logistical work [?!?]. "At this stage, there is no intelligence of any planned terrorist activity in the UK and the arrests are part of an ongoing investigation," Manchester Police said in a statement.

Olmert Calls for Katsav Resignation 24 Jan 2007 Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called on President Moshe Katsav to resign, as charges of rape and abuse of power loomed Wednesday. Katsav asked parliament to temporarily remove him from office in an effort to blunt growing calls for his resignation.

Israeli President, Facing Rape Charge, Asks for Leave 24 Jan 2007 Israeli President Moshe Katsav asked parliament to relieve him temporarily of his duties to fight a rape charge, dismissing calls for his resignation and attacking the media and police for their handling of the allegations.

Kerry to bow out of '08 presidential race 24 Jan 2007 Senator John F. Kerry plans to announce today that he is bowing out of the 2008 presidential race, and will instead remain in Congress and seek reelection to his Senate seat next year, according to senior Democratic officials.

Senate Republicans block minimum wage hike 24 Jan 2007 Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a Democratic bill to increase the federal minimum wage for the first time in a decade, demanding it first include small-business tax relief.

300 students turned away by N.O. schools --Buildings, teachers are in short supply 24 Jan 2007 In an exceedingly rare move for a public school system, hundreds of children seeking spots in the city's schools have been turned away -- "wait-listed" -- and told that the campuses have no room, school officials said Tuesday.

White Atlanta suburbs push for secession 23 Jan 2007 A potentially explosive dispute is taking shape over a proposal by Georgia Legislature's Republican [racist] majority to break Fulton County in two and split off Atlanta's predominantly white, affluent suburbs to the north from some of the metropolitan area's poorest, black neighborhoods.

Microsoft in hot water over Wikipedia edits 24 Jan 2007 Microsoft Corp. has landed in the Wikipedia doghouse after it offered to pay a blogger to change technical articles on the community-produced Web encyclopedia site.

U.N.: Bird flu outbreak alert 23 Jan 2007 The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization is warning nations, particularly in East Asia and Africa, to be vigilant for outbreaks of bird flu. New cases of the avian flu virus have been 'found' in China, Egypt, Indonesia, Japan, Nigeria, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.

Quick action! Protect Polar Bears from Global Warming 24 Jan 2007 ...[T]he U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed to list the polar bear as a threatened species.

9/11 was an inside job says Shayler Jan 22 2007

9/11 was an inside job says Shayler*

Jan 22 2007
Paddy Shennan, Liverpool Echo
EX-MI5 officer David Shayler, who will be in Liverpool to launch the
Movement, tells Paddy Shennan what he thinks about the New York terror

FORMER spy David Shayler doesn't have a story to tell. He has a
million. And
a lot of them might even be true.

Talking to him was incredibly interesting – and not just because he
he could be bumped off by dark forces at any time, thereby becoming
the UK's
own Alexander Litvinenko.

We spoke on the 'phone because, well, you can't be too careful. I
wouldn't fancy getting in a car with him – he says he has suffered
suspicious, potentially-fatal road accidents, in 1997 (driver fell
2002 (rear tyre exploded) and 2005 (dodgy brakes).

Call the writer and activist whatever you want, but don't call him
Because you'd be as wrong as wrong can be.

This is a man who worked for MI5 for five years, sold a story to a
newspaper, fled abroad and, eventually, after being called a traitor
to his
country, jailed.

And now . . . he claims 9/11 was an inside job.

He has even been quoted (out of context, he protests) in a magazine
"Yes, I believe no planes were involved in 9/11 . . . The only
is that they were missiles surrounded by holograms made to look like
. . . Watch the footage frame by frame and you will see a cigar-shaped
missile hitting the World Trade Centre."

However, he tells the ECHO: "I was misquoted. This was a clear and
deliberate attempt to send someone in and stitch us up. They used the
out of context.

"What I am still saying is go onto the internet and look at the
footage . .
. people have had a go at me saying there were no planes but there is
evidence to show that jets went into the buildings. I'm entitled to
say they
didn't and something else did . . . You can make some accurate
from Newton's laws of motion."

This is where he's got me. I saw planes going into the World Trade
but Newton's laws of motion are a mystery to me. As is quantum
which David also mentions during another part of our conversation.

Now a member of the 9/11 Truth Movement – formed after the
publication, in
July 2004, of the official 9/11 Commission Report – Shayler and his
and fellow former MI5 officer Annie Machon will be in Liverpool later
week, as support for the "inside job" theory gathers momentum.

The newly-formed Merseyside Truth Movement is hosting "An Evening
With Real
Spies Unravelling The Lies" event (free admission) from 7.30pm on
at The Casa in Hope Street.

Gary Fletcher, 45, from Wavertree, a rescue boat driver in the North
Sea, is
one of 14 members of the local group. He says: "I saw the second
plane hit
the World Trade Centre on TV and my initial reaction was that it was a
terrorist attack. But when I saw shots from the Pentagon I
thought 'There's
something funny going on here' – especially with four planes being
able to
spend that much time in the air without being shot down."

Short Changed, a documentary about 9/11 made by a group of Americans,
be shown at the Casa and then followed by talks by Shayler and Machon
state terrorism and the aims of the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Shayler, who worked in MI5's political and counter-terrorism
departments in
the early 1990s, says: "I'm not trying to blow my own trumpet but the
credibility I add to the movement is enormous" (I can hear a

He adds: "Liverpool is one of our target cities, as it has a
reputation for
radicalism and questioning the powers-that-be. We are calling for the
inquiry to be re-opened."

There are, according to the non-believers, many more questions than
– not least concerning the collapse of the twin towers: "All the
points to controlled demolition," claims Shayler.

The Pentagon? "We can say, hand on heart, there is evidence of missile

Many will agree – many do agree, just look on the internet – but what
the danger of mass ridicule, in a David ("I'm the Son of God") Icke
kind of

"You must have the courage to tell the truth," says Shayler.

David Shayler is 41. But will he reach 42? He says: "I believe in a
power. I have no fear of death" – which may be just as well, as he
"There have been three attempts on my life in car crashes – two when
I was
an atheist" (he now practices Kabbalah, described as the world's
oldest body
of spiritual wisdom).

Regarding the future, he says: "This is the defining issue of
humanity. We
have never lived with such control ."

George Bush, though? Some might say he couldn't even control his own
movements. But, says Shayler, it goes much deeper than Bush and Tony

"Bush and Blair are puppets . . . Blair may be more intelligent than
but they are both clearly patsies."

But I can still hear people shouting: "This is madness!" How would you

"I would say that in 20 years time their kids may be asking them 'Why
is it
we used to live in a democracy and don't any more?'"

Told you – he's not boring, is he?

U.S. intelligence analyst has stated that the U.S. plans a broad-scale
war against Iran... But how would the U.S. -- which has already
stretched its military thin in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars -- pull
off? By using "The Khuzestan Gambit", as military planners call it.
Basically, the U.S. would invade Khuzestan, a small region of Iran

Fwd: False Flag Ops - Some History

False Flag Ops - Some History

By Mac McKinney

>From time to time I'm going to throw out a few terms, definitions and
expositions on the political science (or political voodoo) subject
one might call Modern Machiavellianism 101, the principles (or
unprinciples) of which form the modus operandi of the Bush
Administration. Today's term is "false flag operation", a term most
readers are familiar with, but not all, so here is how Wikipedia
briefly defines it:

"False flag operations are covert operations conducted by
governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed
to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The
name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors;
that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own."

I guess the old Hollywood pirate movies would be a perfect example of
literally flying a false flag, when a pirate ship would hoist an
innocent-looking national ensign as it approached its intended
victim, beguiling the crew, and then haul up the Jolly Roger at the
last minute as it attacked. In real history, a classic example would
be the German Raiders of WWII, vessels which had hidden guns and
torpedo-launchers on board what were converted merchant ships flying
false flags as they approached other vessels. They would raise the
German flag at the last moment, demand the other ship's surrender
through signal flags, or some other means, to give the crew a cursory
opportunity to escape if the German captain was feeling gracious, and
then strive to sink it whether it surrendered or not.

But the type of false flag operation I am specifically referring to
today is when one entity commits a crime or stages what looks like a
crime while pretending to be another entity, so as to have all the
blame cast on the second entity. For example, the infamous Reichstag
Fire in Germany in 1933, which was originally blamed on the mentally
challenged communist, Marinus Van der Lubbe, who also confessed,
after Nazi interrogation, to the fire, is now widely accepted as
an "inside" job by the Nazis themselves to promote a murderous purge
against German communists and catapult Hitler to dictatorial power
through the Enabling Act.

It was later revealed that an underground tunnel running from Hermann
Goering's residence to the cellars of the Reichstag allowed storm
troopers, led by SA leader Karl Ernst, to steal undetected into the
building to engage in their own significant arsonist activities while
Van der Lubbe, clueless, apparently ran amok, half-naked, using his
shirt as a torch. Indications are that undercover Nazi agents had
befriended him and knew the time of his arson attempt.

The Nazis also employed a sinister false flag op against Poland in
1939, staging an attack on the Gleiwitz radio station on the German
border with Poland. One of several slightly different historical
accounts has the Nazis dressing up several German-held convicts in
Polish uniforms, shooting them and then arranging their bodies as if
they had attacked the station. A German agent then read anti-German
polemics over the air in Polish, conjuring up, across Germany's air
waves, the imagined scenario that Poles had overrun the station.
German citizens were outraged and Hitler dutifully invaded Poland the
next day, citing this and several other alleged incidents as

False flag operations have been used repeatedly throughout history,
dating back to Nero framing the Christians for the great fire of Rome
and beyond. And there are now widespread arguments that this
Machiavellian technique has become an ongoing tool in both the
American and British Establishments' clandestine bag of dirty tricks,
the Gulf of Tonkin incident with North Vietnam often cited as one
prominent example, not to mention the historical controversy
surrounding the justification for the American invasion of Mexico in
1846, as well as the controversy surrounding the sinking of the USS
Maine in Havana Harbor that led to the Spanish-American War in 1898.

Currently, there are powerful allegations that both 9/11 and the
London Terror Bombings also fall into the false flag category, as
shock and awe catastrophies designed to jerk the public's chains in
the United States and Britain and then manipulate them into the
frenzied service of war. Various draconian terror alerts
and "uncovered" terrorist plots also raise questions, particularly in
those cases where we learn that government agencies had conducted
surveillance operations on suspects for months or even run sting
operations against them. A good case in point is last year's
melodramatic announcement of a "Liquid Bomb Plot" against some 14
airliners, a case which has slowly been unraveling as various
suspects both in Britain and Pakistan have been quietly released or
had their charges downgraded for lack of serious evidence, as opposed
to mountains of dubious circumstantial "evidence". The assassination
of Harik Hariri in Lebanon may also be a classic false flag op,
tarring Syria with the murder while many, including French
Intelligence officials, now believe Israeli operatives were behind
it. I am sure viewers of this website have their own opinions on all
of this.

What is worse is that there are now heightening rumors and
predictions that a new false flag operation is underway to justify
retaliatory attacks or full-scale war against Iran and/or Syria. The
recent storming of a de facto Iranian consulate in Arbil in Kurdish
Northern Iraq is, quite possibly, a trial run in this direction, an
escalation beyond the arrest and later release of Iranian diplomats
in Baghdad last December. Five Iranians, although in Arbil at the
invitation of Kurdish authorities and recognized as diplomats by the
Iraqi government, were arrested and accused by Americans of being
Republican Guard types clandestinely supplying Iraqi insurgents with
weapons, etc. Never mind that the Iranian government is Shiite and
the insurgents, as the US military defines them, are Sunnis involved
in hostilities with the Shiites - reality is the last consideration
in splashy propaganda operations by an Imperialist power.

Let us hope that a false flag disaster with a made-in-USA Iranian
pennant hoisted over it is simply overwrought paranoia, for the very
last thing the planet needs is another bloody war. But if another
major terrorist attack does occur, let us not be shocked and awed
into stupidity, but start to analyze the event immediately with a
healthy dose of skepticism.
