The Hegelian Dialectic is alive and well in a “toxic warped” America

WW~Notes: In my last post, Today’s PIC, I noticed two articles toward the end of Kaminski’s article.  Unfortunately, Kaminski and I suffered a falling out some months back which is why you rarely see articles from him on my blog these days.  However, these two articles are worth noting just to realize how corrupt the U.S. government intelligence agencies operate.  Both are from 2011 and are re-printed here in their entirety.

Homegrown Terror Threat “Manufactured”: NYU Study

The threat of homegrown terror in America has been “manufactured” by entrapping Muslim men into crimes they otherwise would not commit, a recent study from the New York University School of Law has concluded.

The study, Targeted and Entrapped: Manufacturing the “Homegrown Terror Threat” in the United States, focuses on three recent convictions of Muslim-Americans who attempted to commit acts of terror on US soil. The cases are: a man convicted in 2006 of plotting to blow up the Herald Square subway station; five men convicted in 2008 of conspiring to kill soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J.; and four others convicted last year of trying to bomb two synagogues in the Bronx and planning to fire missiles at military aircraft.

The study, published by the law school’s Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and the school’s International Human Rights Clinic, shows that government informants egged on the Muslims to try to commit the acts of terror. While  juries concluded the men committed the actions on their own accord, the judge overseeing one of the cases remarked that there was “something decidedly troubling about the government’s behavior” and that the informant went to great lengths to goad one defendant into taking part in the plot.

“Since September 11, 2001, the U.S government has targeted Muslims in the United States by sending paid, untrained informants into mosques and Muslim communities,” the study says. “This practice has led to the prosecution of more than 200 individuals in terrorism-related cases.”

The study was published last May and got little notice until former New York City Mayor Ed Koch came across it, reports The New York Times. Koch, an N.Y.U. graduate, tried to get the school to disavow the report and publish rebuttal he got Long Island Congressman Peter King to write up. The school’s dean, Richard L. Revesz, told Koch no, and the former Mayor took his battle public.

“Academic freedom doesn’t mean you have the right to distribute false reports, and when called to your attention, to do nothing about it,” Koch told the paper. “The dean doesn’t seem to care whether it’s factual or not.”

The Times finds that the difference between the two sides comes down to wording found in the study. For example, what King describes — as did prosecutors — as one group of defendants’ paramilitary training, the N.Y.U. report calls “recreational activities.”And while the report clearly states that “more than 200 individuals” have been prosecuted based on the actions of government informants, Smita Narula, an author of the report and a faculty director of the two groups behind it, said it “never claims that 200 people were entrapped.”

What the study does say is that “the types of evidence relied upon by the government in terror-related prosecutions are highly prejudicial, and build on the conflation of Muslim religious practice, political opinions critical of U.S. foreign policy, and terrorism.

“The prejudicial nature of relying on such evidence is magnified in the context of an entrapment defense, when the defendant’s predisposition to commit the charged crimes is at issue.”


FBI Successful In Breaking Up Yet Another Of Its Own Plots To Bomb The US

from the what-an-amazing-track-record dept

We’ve discussed this a few times in the past, but the FBI’s main counter-terrorism initiative these days appears to be centered around creating its own terrorist plots to thwart. First, they find clueless, easily manipulated people (frequently young and Muslim), who have no actual connections with terrorists. Then, they concoct entire terrorism plots, where every other person is an FBI agent, and any tools, “weapons” and money are supplied by the FBI. Finally, they “bust” the guy just before he carries out the plot that never would have happened anyway, because it’s not like the FBI would supply the actual weapons. We see this pattern again and again — and each time the press uncritically hypes up how the FBI successfully stopped a real “homegrown” terrorist.

Of course, it’s happened once again, and the basic plotlines are identical to ones in the past. And, of course, the press is describing it like it was an actual terrorist plot, pretending that people was actually at risk. Glenn Greenwald’s summary of this and other cases is pretty spot on:

None of these cases entail the FBI’s learning of an actual plot and then infiltrating it to stop it. They all involve the FBI’s purposely seeking out Muslims (typically young and impressionable ones) whom they think harbor animosity toward the U.S. and who therefore can be induced to launch an attack despite having never taken even a single step toward doing so before the FBI targeted them. Each time the FBI announces it has disrupted its own plot, press coverage is predictably hysterical (new Homegrown Terrorist caught!), fear levels predictably rise, and new security measures are often implemented in response (the FBI’s Terror plot aimed at the D.C. Metro, for instance, led to the Metro Police announcing a new policy of random searches of passengers’ bags).

 

Now, I’m sure some will argue that these efforts highlight those who may be pre-disposed to taking part in such activities if given the chance for real. But in the US, I thought we didn’t believe in arresting people for crimes that they’re pre-disposed to doing if they haven’t actually done them. On top of that, with the FBI providing most of the actual plot here, it’s difficult to see how this isn’t a classical case of entrapment. Finally, it’s not clear what good this really does. Putting people who had no real means of attacking the US in jail isn’t likely to scare off anyone else.

It also makes you wonder if the FBI shouldn’t be spending more time trying to stop actual plots that involve people who have the means to actually hurt people, rather than these plots which have exactly 0% chance of causing any harm.

Revised: Blind loyalty to a uniform in the service of evil is not patriotic

Revised 5/26/14: Title altered

That statement pretty much sums up my current feelings about “the troops.”

Yet, once again, the country celebrates Memorial Day, which is meaningless in the eyes of those aware of the truth.  America’s troops basically serve an evil empire being run and mismanaged by even more evil men and women.  The troops are at their disposal to start a skirmish in some distant country, or foment another phony war all for the sake of the fascist capitalists sitting in the District of Columbia and their corporate jewish overlords.

America’s standing military is supposed to defend the nation from all enemies both foreign and domestic, yet, the People’s fiercest enemy is already inside the gates.  And that enemy is the very same entity that controls the reins of the military.  As said by J. Edgar Hoover, founder of the F.B.I., “The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists.”

But, I digress.  The focus of this article is to pay homage to a lost hero who also had the same mission objective as myself and many other writers, authors, and bloggers in the battle to expose America’s real, true enemy.  He, too, wore a uniform, though not in military service, but a civil servant as a local police Sargeant in Oklahoma City during the 1995 ‘false flag’ bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

Sgt. Terrance Yeakey was the first to arrive on the scene that terrible day and saved the lives of eight people from the rubble of the building and the horrific effects of the explosion.  The attached article written in 2005 from American Free Press discloses the severe price Sgt. Yeakey would pay for being the very “first” responder after the attack, and which caused his untimely death at the young age of only 30-years old.

FEDERAL MURDER INC. TIED TO OKC TERROR BOMBING
Police Sergeant Suicided To Keep Truth Hidden
By Pat Shannan

February 21, 2005

The terror loosed in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, was created by criminals and murderers directed by and paid for by the federal government. This is the only conclusion that can be reached by a calm analysis of the facts.

The case of Sergeant Terry Yeakey is only one of a myriad of dramatic stories that could be told, stories just waiting for Hollywood, but out of bounds for public consumption.

It has been nearly 10 years since Oklahoma City’s Murrah building was blown apart one quiet April morning. Contrary to news reports, the persons found guilty and sentenced for the Murrah bombing atrocity could not have been solely responsible. An Oklahoma City police sergeant became aware of this before anyone else, apparently during the first hour of rescue. He paid for that discovery with his life.

Yeakey, an African-American hero if there ever was one, was a giant of a man with a heart as big as the rest of him. As the first cop on the Murrah building scene following the explosions, he became a crusader for truth.

There is a memorable news photo of his 6-foot, 3-inch, nearly 300-pound frame sprinting down NW 5th Street toward the building on one of the many rescue missions he performed that ugly day. He worked for 48 hours without sleep.

Terry Yeakey Rescue-smAfter numerous private investigators produced evidence of multiple explosions, unexploded bombs being hauled away by the authorities, and the incapability of an ammonium nitrate fuel oil bomb to cause the kind of devastation seen in downtown Oklahoma City, a giant government cover-up became obvious.

But Yeakey knew it long before the rest of us. Only a couple of hours into the rescue, Yeakey became painfully aware of something disturbing. Did he somehow figure out that the building had been blown from the inside and that the news reports were fabrications?

Did he overhear a strange conversation from some of the many Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) agents who were on the scene sooner than they should have been?

Whatever it was, Yeakey was upset. He called his wife that morning crying, ” It ‘ s not true. It ‘ s not what they are saying. It didn ‘ t happen that way. “

Yeakey ran back and forth into that concrete mess of bricks and mortar all day long and continued beyond exhaustion, far into the night.

In a cadre of heroes that day, Yeakey ‘ s performance was outstanding. On May 11, the following year he was scheduled to receive the Medal of Valor from the Oklahoma City Police Department (OCPD). He never got it. He was murdered on May 8, 1996, in the country, two and a half miles west of the El Reno Penitentiary. His body was found a mile from his blood-soaked car.

The official report said ” suicide. ” However, many people who knew Yeakey have questioned that, as the inside of Terry ‘ s private automobile was described by witnesses as looking like someone had ” butchered a hog ” on the front seat. There was much blood on the back seat, too, but little or none where his body was found a mile away.

More suspiciously, his private bombing reports were missing from his car and have never been found.

According to the report, while still inside his Ford Probe that he had parked on a lonely country road, Yeakey slashed himself 11 times on both forearms before cutting his throat twice near the jugular vein. Then, apparently seeking an even more private place to die, he crawled 8,000 feet through rough terrain and climbed a fence before shooting himself in the head with a small caliber revolver, which he apparently took with him to the hereafter.

Independent investigators speculated that had Yeakey shot himself with his own gun, a Glock 9mm, there would have been significantly more damage to his head than was evident.

What appeared to be rope burns on his neck, handcuff bruises to his wrists, and muddy grass embedded in his slash wounds strongly indicated that he had some help in traversing his final distance.

However, the information about the victim undergoing a violent beating prior to his ” suicide ” was left off the medical examiner ‘ s report.

The bullet ‘ s entrance wound was in the right temple, above the eye. It went through the policeman ‘ s head and exited in the area of the left cheek, near the bottom of the earlobe line. The trajectory was from a 40-45 degree angle above his head. There were no powder burns.

According to unnamed officers, 40 or more law enforcement personnel were at the scene combing the area for the ” suicide ” weapon, but were unsuccessful for more than an hour.

But after an FBI helicopter landed at the scene carrying FBI SAC Bob Ricks, ” Yeakey ‘ s weapon” was suddenly discovered only five minutes later. Of course, it was not Yeakey’s police issue handgun, and the description of the weapon has never been made public, but the official record immediately became that of ” suicide. “

One of the last people Yeakey talked to was a friend who knew he was on a mission of private investigation. Yeakey had told him that he was on his way to El Reno to check out something, but first he had to shake the FBI agents who were following him.

He reportedly stopped at a cafe in El Reno and spoke with a friend and had either lunch or coffee there around noon. His body was found at 1:30 p.m. the same day, yet his family was not notified until the following day on May 9.

Tonya Yeakey, the mother of his children, later reported in a radio interview that Yeakey had shared a secret safe deposit box with Dr. Charles Chumley at one of the downtown Oklahoma City banks. Despite denials by OCPD officials, Mrs. Yeakey maintains that Yeakey and Chumley were friends even before the bombing and that they had conferred several times regarding pictures from the scene and the distorted truth of the official story.

She suspects that the bank box contained incriminating pictures, but the private bank box in mention was closed and its contents emptied immediately after Yeakey ‘ s death. Mrs. Yeakey does not know who authorized it, and whatever contents were there have never surfaced.

Chumley had only worked side by side with Yeakey during those first hours and days of rescue, but also had defied the federal officers at the scene who reportedly attempted to have him falsify reports.

Chumley, a private pilot, had also died mysteriously when his plane went into a nosedive from 6,000 feet into a cabbage field following a takeoff from Amarillo in August 1995. FAA investigators found ” nothing mechanically wrong ” to cause such a bizarre accident and it remains unsolved.

Including Chumley and Yeakey, there have been more than 30 suspicious deaths of witnesses who harbored information pertinent to the truth in the OKC case. During recent decades, much of the FBI has earned the reputation of being more of a government protectorate than an efficient investigative agency.

Although the Yeakey incident occurred 30 miles away in a different jurisdiction, the investigation was quickly taken out of the hands of the El Reno police and the Canadian County sheriff and turned over to the OCPD and the FBI. No homicide investigation was conducted, and there was no autopsy.

The funeral director reported that the cuts described as ” superficial ” in the medical examiner ‘ s report were so severe that they had to be sewn up to prevent leakage before the body could be embalmed.

One retired cop, who preferred anonymity, suggested that the strange hush-up of a cop killing was easily instigated by the FBI because of its knowledge of drug crimes within the ranks of the OCPD.

” It ‘ s a hammer that [FBI agents] have held over our heads for a long time, ” he said.

In an exclusive interview with the American Free Press, Mrs. Yeaky said that her husband had been upset by something he had seen under the day care center during the rescue operation. He had wanted to go back and photograph it, but the officials would not let him onto the site again.

She said Yeakey had been ordered by his superiors at OCPD to rewrite his nine-page report to omit and alter certain facts and to condense it to but one page.

She said she was told by her husband ‘ s superior, Lt. Joann Randall, in a brief but hostile telephone exchange, to ” tell Terry that if the new report is not submitted by the end of the week, he will be put on reprimand. “

Mrs. Yeakey also said Yeakey was supposed to be decorated for his work as a rescue person, but did not really want the limelight. She said Yeakey felt the investigation was fraudulent and did not like the fact that the OCPD was honoring people who were not deserving.

Yeakey had told friends that he was going out of town to hide or secure ” evidence of a cover-up of the bombing by federal agents. “

WW~Postscript:  Brave, courageous Americans such as Sgt. Yeakey who literally died in search of the truth behind the ‘false flag’ Oklahoma City Bombing deserve our highest respect for their fierce moral integrity, which very few can claim today who wear the uniform in any of the four branches of the United States Military.  Just the fact that any American presently serving in the military should be considered suspect and an enemy of the truth since they no longer serve or represent this country.  The U.S. Military serves the interests of a foreign power and a usurper of the government, and thy name is Israel.

Stasi-like FBI Labels 9/11 Skeptics ‘Potential Terrorists’

FBI-ADL-Partners

Pictured: Corrupted FBI agents receive award from Zionist spy apparatus known as the ADL for their unflinching loyalty to the Zionist cause.

The FBI considers 9/11 skeptics to be potential terrorists, Press TV has reported.

In a written memo uncovered by Digital Journal, the FBI has instructed local police departments to target people who harbour skepticism of the official Zionist media version of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks as a ‘security threat’.

Critics say that this demonization tactic is typical of the Israeli-trained agency, whose close partnership with the Anti-Defamation League, a known front for Israeli intelligence, troubles many freedom-minded Americans.

Years ago the FBI implemented mandatory ‘holocaust’ education as part of its training program. “Before becoming special agents, students from the FBI Training Academy tour the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum,” boasts the FBI’s official website. The FBI website brags that more than 60,000 law enforcement officials, including 10,000 new FBI agents and analysts, have gone through the ADL-directed holocaust program.

In 1993, the FBI was caught aiding and abetting the bombing of the World Trade Center. Emad Salem, an FBI asset, played an integral role in the bombing, alongside a Mossad operative named Guzie Hadas who coordinated the false-flag operation which was falsely blamed on Muslim patsies.

Since 9/11, the FBI has sought enormous annual budgets in order to “fight terrorism.” Critics say that the FBI has no real intention of fighting or stopping terrorism, but actually routinely manufactures phony terror plots in order to justify its massive annual budgets and its very existence as an agency.

Critics describe the FBI’s “anti-terrorism” crusade as a public relations sleight of hand. Investigative journalist Trevor Aaronson, in his book “The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism,” documents FBI intrigue to create terrorism in the United States and have it blamed on Muslims. Amazon’s description of the book is as follows:

“A groundbreaking work of investigative journalism, The Terror Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terrorism exposes how the FBI has, under the guise of engaging in counterterrorism since 9/11, built a network of more than 15,000 informants whose primary purpose is to infiltrate Muslim communities to create and facilitate phony terrorist plots so that the Bureau can then claim it is winning the war on terror.

An outgrowth of Trevor Aaronson’s work as an investigative reporting fellow at the University of California, Berkeley, which culminated in an award-winning cover story in Mother Jones magazine, The Terror Factory reveals shocking information about the criminals, con men, and liars the FBI uses as paid informants–including the story of an accused murderer who has become one of the Bureau’s most prolific terrorism snitches–as well as documenting the extreme methods the FBI uses to ensnare Muslims in terrorist plots, which are in reality conceived and financed by the FBI.

The book also offers unprecedented detail into how the FBI has transformed from a reactive law enforcement agency to a proactive counterterrorism organization that traps hapless individuals in manufactured terrorist plots in order to justify the $3 billion it spends every year fighting terrorism.

The FBI plays a starring role in most alternative theories about the 9/11 attacks, which present the crooked agency as prime facilitators of the 9/11 cover-up.

America Planning for a Post-Israel Middle East?

By Franklin Lamb

August 28, 2012 “Information Clearing House” —-

Congresswoman Illena Ros-Lehtinen will have her hands full as she makes the political and social rounds at this month’s Republican National Convention. Illena, is the only female committee chair in the House of Representatives and arguably Israel’s most ardent agent. She is a constant thorn in the Obama administration’s side, regularly castigating the president for playing “political games with U.S. foreign policy” and being “soft on Iran” and undermining the legitimacy of Israel. Ros-Lehtinen is a congressional cheer leader also for her Jewish voters in Florida — a key battleground in the rapidly approaching US presidential election. Most recently, Ros-Lehtinen helped shepherd through Congress yet another bill tightening sanctions against Iran while calling for US military action against the Assad regime in Syria.

The Congresswomen’s focus will likely not be on pushing the republican’s talking points regarding her party’s nominee, Mitt Romney the former “moderate Massachusetts governor” who she is aware is unlikely to win the White House. Nor, according to a source at the Democratic National Committee, frantically putting together final touches on their own Convention, to be held the week of September 3 in Charlotte, North Carolina, will Ileana spend much time with or promoting Mitt’ running mate, Congressman Paul Ryan. Ryan, an Ayn Rand (author of The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged as well as founder of the Objectivism movement) follower, regularly tells audiences that “Ayn Rand’s teachings have been one of the most profound philosophical influences of my life.”

Well, except for religion and abortion and a few other matters, as Ayn, who passed away in 1982 was an avowed atheist and strongly pro-abortion, the opposite of what Ryan tells audiences he is.

Rather, Ros-Lehtinen will be meeting with local, national, and international Jewish leaders in this must win state where she has been assigned the task of reassuring them that the Republican Party is Israel’s best friend and that a recent US government draft report urging a US re-think of its relationship to Israel is the responsibility of none other than Barack Obama, and it reveals his true disdain for Israel.

Helping her smear the White House with the findings in the draft  analysis will be William Kristol, publisher of the neoconservative Weekly Standard and Director of the New American Century, an “Israel first” Washington-based lobby “promoting joint Israeli and American political and military leadership across the globe, while bringing democracy to the Middle East”.

So what is all the fuss about?

It’s a paper entitled: Preparing For A Post Israel Middle East, an 82 page analysis that concludes that the American national interest is fundamentally at odds with that of Zionist Israel. The authors concludes that Israel is currently the greatest threat to US national interests because its nature and actions prevent normal US relations with Arab and Muslim countries and, to a growing degree, the wider international community.

The study was commissioned by the US Intelligence Community comprising 16 American intelligence agencies with an annual budget in excess of $ 70 billion. The IC includes the Departments of the Navy, Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Defense Intelligence Agency, Departments of Energy, Homeland Security, State, Treasury, Drug Enforcement Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Security Agency, National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency commissioned the study.

Among the many findings that Ros-Lehtenin and Kristol and other unregistered agents of Israel will likely try to exploit politically between now and November 6, by using them to attack the Obama Administration. A sampling of the findings includes the following:

•   Israel, given its current brutal occupation and belligerence cannot be salvaged any more than apartheid south Africa could be when as late as 1987 Israel was the only “Western” nation that upheld diplomatic ties with South Africa and was the last country to join the international boycott campaign before the regime collapsed;

•   The Israel leadership, with its increasing support of the 700,000 illegal settlers on the occupied West Bank is increasing out of touch with the political, military and economic realities of the Middle East;
•   The post Labor government Likud coalition is deeply complicit with and influenced by the settlers’ political and financial power and will increasingly face domestic civil strife which the US government should not associate itself with or become involved with;

•   The Arab Spring and Islamic Awakening has, to a major degree, freed a large majority of the 1.2 billion Arab and Muslims to pursue what an overwhelming majority believe is the illegitimate, immoral and unsustainable European occupation of Palestine of the indigenous population;•   Simultaneous with, but predating, rapidly expanding Arab and Muslim power in the region as evidenced by the Arab spring, Islamic Awakening and the ascendancy of Iran, as American power and influence recedes, the US commitment to belligerent oppressive Israel is becoming impossible to defend or execute consistent given paramount US national interests which include normalizing relations with the 57 Islamic countries;

•   Gross Israeli interference in the internal affairs of the United States through spying and illegal US arms transfers. This includes supporting more than 60 ‘front organizations’ and  approximately 7,500 US officials who do Israel’s bidding and seek to dominate and intimidate the media and agencies of  the US government which should no longer be condoned;•   That the United States government no longer has the financial resources, or public support to continue funding Israel. The more than three trillion dollars in direct and indirect aid from US taxpayers to Israel since 1967 is not affordable and is increasingly being objected to by US taxpayers who oppose continuing American military involvement in the Middle East. US public opinion no longer supports funding and executing widely perceived illegal US wars on Israel’s behalf. This view is increasingly being shared by Europe, Asia and the International public;

•   Israel’s segregationist occupation infrastructure evidenced by legalized discrimination and increasingly separate and unequal justice systems must no longer be directly or indirectly funded by the US taxpayers or ignored by the US government;
•   Israel has failed as a claimed democratic state and continued American financial and political cover will not change its continuing devolution as international pariah state;•   Increasingly, rampant and violent racism exhibited among Jewish settlers in the West Bank is being condoned by the Israeli government to a degree that the Israel government has become its protector and partner;

•   The expanding chasm among American Jews objecting to Zionism and Israeli practices, including the killing and brutalizing of Palestinians under Israeli occupation,  are gross violations of American and International law and raise questions within the US Jewish community regarding the American responsibility to protect (R2P) innocent civilians under occupation;

•   The international opposition to the increasingly apartheid regime can no longer be synchronized with American claimed  humanitarian values or US expectations in its bi-lateral relations with the 193 member United Nations;

The Draft ends with language about the need to avoid entangling alliances that alienate much of the World and condemn American citizens to endure the consequences.

Interestingly, it notes Iran as an example of a country and people that have much in common and whose citizens have a real interest in bilateral associations (here an apparent reference to Israel and its US lobby) not determined by the wishes of other countries and their agents. It also highlights the need for the US to undertake “the repairing relations with Arab and Muslim countries including the drastically curtained use of drone aircraft.The coming days will clarity the success of Israel in making an issue of the finding in the soon to be published draft report and the degree to which the Republican Party will gain for its findings in the race for the White House.

FBI Agent Fleeing Massive Manhunt Warns “They’re All Insane”

From May 16, 2012

A bizarre Foreign Ministry report circulating in the Kremlin today states that this Friday past (11 May) Russian Envoy Vladimir Vinokurov, the Consulate General of San Francisco, was approached near his hotel room during a visit to Los Angles by an agent of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) indentifying himself as Stephen Ivens [photo top left] who warned that he and a former FBI agent named Donald Sachtleben had uncovered evidence of an impending terror attack on US soil stating that those behind the attack were “all insane.”

Before Ivens was able to finish his “message,” this report says, the three American Diplomatic Security (DS) agents, who trail all Russian diplomats in the US, began to “surge” towards Ivens causing him to flee.

According to US news sources, Special Agent Ivens, after leaving downtown Los Angeles, returned to his home in Burbank whereupon he then fled into the rugged Verdugo Mountains after which a massive manhunt for him ensued involving 100 FBI agents, 40 sheriff’s department rescuers and a dozen local police officers.

FBI officials stated to the local media that Ivens was “distraught” and “might be suicidal” adding that they believed he had in his possession his service weapon.  At no time, however, did anyone ever state as to why Ivens would be in such a state.

According to other US news sources, Special Agent Ivens graduated from Braintree High School in Massachusetts 18 years ago and was selected by his fellow students as “shyest” in his class. He was further described by FBI colleagues as well liked, a devoted agent with no history of disciplinary action on the job, and according to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller “Married with a one-year-old child, he has been working for the FBI for the past three years in the national security area. Prior to that, he worked as a Los Angeles police officer for eight years.”

Late yesterday, after the massive manhunt failed to find any trace of Ivens, his wife Thea Ivens issued an urgent public appeal stating: “Steve, if you are out there listening right now, your wife wants to let you know, ‘Babe, we are in this together for better or for worse. I love you, no matter what happens.’ Your child wants you to know, ‘Daddy’s work? Daddy home?’”

Even more bizarre about this case, this report continues, is that the retired FBI agent named Donald Sachtleben mentioned by Ivens, who also knew about this impending “plot,” was arrested within hours of Ivens disappearing and charged with trading child pornography.

Most important to note about Sachtleben was, aside from his being an over 25-year veteran of the FBI, he was a special agent bomb technician before retiring in 2008 who specialized in counterterrorism and bombing investigations and whose most important case was the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York City.

According to US news reports about Sachtleben’s arrest, this most knowledgeable of FBI agents openly traded child porn using the e-mail address ‘pedodave69@yahoo.com’ in an act so stupid for one of the United States most highly trained intelligence agents it defies belief.

The practice of US intelligence services charging their most feared dissidents with child pornography and/or sex charges is well known, with the most celebrated case being against the former UN weapons inspector William Scott Ritter, Jr. who warned about the lies being told to the American people in the run-up to the Iraq War only to find himself sent to prison on trumped up charges involving a minor girl.

To exactly what kind of false flag plot Agents Ivens and Sachtleben had uncovered this report doesn’t say, other than to note that the credibility of this information should not be dismissed due to how fast and hard US intelligence agencies are acting to cover their tracks should any additional information come forth.

Grimly to be noted is the use of false flag operations by the United States and their political elite classes are well known and well documented, the most famous of them being Operation Northwoods.

Operation Northwoods was a series of false-flag proposals that originated in 1962 within the United States government, and which the Kennedy administration rejected. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), or other operatives, to commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities and elsewhere. These acts of terrorism were to be blamed on Cuba in order to create public support for a war against that nation, which had recently become communist under Fidel Castro. One part of Operation Northwoods was to “develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington.”

Operation Northwoods proposals included hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government. It stated: “The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.”

Several other proposals were included within Operation Northwoods, including real or simulated actions against various U.S. military and civilian targets. The plan was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent to the Secretary of Defense. Although part of the U.S. government’s Cuban Project anti-communist initiative, Operation Northwoods was never officially accepted; it was authored by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy.

As the events of Oklahoma City and 9/11 prove, however, the appetite for false flag operations against the American people by their own government is far from sated, with the next one, undoubtedly, being the worst of them all.

Former head of FBI Los Angeles, Memphis, Dallas, poisoned with Arsenic says Dr Ed Lucidi who saw the body and treated Mr Gunderson who suffered bladder cancer and died as a result of its spread. Reportedly Mr Gunderson had a very large FBI dossier being a whistleblower against the agency and left out of moral considerations. He spoke to many around the country about his first hand information.. Anthony J Hilder's http://www.freeworldfilmworks.com/index.html

To my astonishment I discovered today that one of our own in the Truth Movement had passed away – last year!  Ted Gunderson, a former FBI Bureau Chief and Whistleblower,  died on July 31, 2011 from complications of bladder cancer.  However, there is more to this story than was previously reported.

His good friend, Anthony J. Hilder, documentary film-maker, investigative journalist, talk show host and war correspondant is the creator of Free World Film Works.  Before Ted died he made a request to his daughter and Hilder that his body be autopsied.  Ted Gunderson knew that when he died there might be another reason other than the official diagnosis.

Ken Adachi Editor of Educate-Yourself.org had this to say about Ted:

Ted Gunderson was a wonderful, caring, and giving person. Since his retirement from the FBI in 1979, he had devoted his life to helping those least able to fend for themselves and get out their stories of satanic ritual abuse and government-sponsored secret operations including mind control, child abduction, sexual abuse of children, sexual enslavement, human trafficking, auctioning of children and the use of kidnapped children for secret experimentation and ritual murder.

Since 1979 Gunderson had no doubt witnessed numerous injustices in this country; from the Franklin Scandal in the 1980′s, the 1993 WTC first attack, the OK city bombing, to the most heinous attack upon our nation on 9/11, etc.  He wanted these criminals exposed and dealt with accordingly, but due to most of their high-ranks in U.S. society and politics even he was limited as to what he could do to gain justice for the innocent victims and closure for their families.

Obviously he knew too much and “they” took him out over a long period of time probably to undermine any suspicion that might have arisen if he suddenly died for no reason.

Dr. Edward Lucidi performed the autopsy and determined that Ted had been suffering from Arsenic poisoning for several years and that it, in fact, caused his bladder cancer.  Some time later Anthony Hilder interviewed Dr. Lucidi:

JFK, Jr.’s Assassins Identified in official report sealed until 2025

Who killed John-John?
http://tomflocco.com/
by Tom Flocco,

“If a man or woman living among you in one of the towns the Lord gives you is found doing evil in the eyes of the Lord your God in violation of his covenant….and this has been brought to your attention, then you must investigate it thoroughly. If it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, take the man or woman who has done this evil deed to your city gate and stone that person to death. On the testimony of two or three witnesses a man shall be put to death, but no one shall be put to death on the testimony of only one witness. The hands of the witnesses must be the first in putting him to death, and then the hands of all the people. You must purge the evil from among you.” Deuteronomy 17: 2-7

Division 4 team names Clintons, Bush 41, 43 in JFK Jr. assassination

by Tom Flocco

“One of my family members was related to JFK Jr.‘s grandmother, and although it was not a blood relationship, I had at least a half dozen lengthy conversations with John during the years before he died. We liked each other and hit it off; so this was why John opened up to me and seemed to trust me regarding his future plans to run against either Hillary Clinton for the Senate or George W. Bush for the Presidency in 2000. John had many conversations with my relative; and he gave her permission to discuss his political aspirations with friends so this was not a closely held secret. But what was interesting was that John told me he was pretty sure he could win either of those races.” (“Delbert,” former Interpol operative and CIA Division 4 team member)

Caldwell, New Jersey — August 31, 2005 — TomFlocco.com – “I know I’m risking my life in allowing you to interview me; but I’m aware there is an operational grand jury and indictments regarding the White House, so now is the time. I‘m tired

of knowing all the details and perpetrators of the murder of an innocent and good man without seeing justice. John’s death has caused tremendous trauma throughout the Kennedy family,“ said a 40ish ex-operative who consented to discuss the investigation and his part in writing the JFK Jr. plane crash preliminary and final reports authorized by the FBI.

“Just refer to me as ‘Delbert.’ That’s good enough,” he said, adding, “If they will kill ‘John-John,’ they’ll kill anybody.”

The long-time Special Forces and Division 4 operative’s explosive evidence, witness testimony and his team’s suppressed and classified final report naming former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H. W. Bush, President George W. Bush and Senator Hillary Clinton among others as being involved in orchestrating the assassination of John F. Kennedy Jr. will require U.S. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to hear testimony to investigate John Jr.’s death as part of his ongoing grand jury probe involving White House crime families.

1999 piper saratoga II TC ….similar to JFK jr. plane

During three exclusive interviews with TomFlocco.com, the ex-operative told us the final classified report specifically said “JFK Jr.’s plane broke in half just aft of the cabin. The damage was caused by a plastique (C-4) shape charge which was formed along the bottom of the fuselage and up along both sides of the walls. The charge was caused to be set off or exploded with a large spark generated by a barometric switch device triggered by the altitude of the plane. In other words, the assassins chose the altitude for the explosion of the plane–a standard procedure to make the target’s murder look like an accident.”

Delbert said his team and their witnesses and families have been in physical jeopardy since 1999 “because the media did not report the truth about what happened;” and that all involved are now placing their lives in the hands of Fitzgerald and his deputies to prosecute the evidence–charges that will serve to mitigate compromised media outlets now protecting the White House with spin and insinuations that Fitzgerald is using the “perjury trap” to manufacture crimes instead of genuinely seeking evidence.

Sources close to one grand jury indicate the spin will not work this time. The U.S. intelligence community is monitoring the work of all the prosecutors and grand juries. Serious crimes with supporting evidence involving three branches of government and the media have already threatened the long term survival of the Republic.

We learned that scores of witnesses were interviewed by Division 4: a) at the scene of the explosion off Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, b) when the plane and bodies were recovered, c) in the White House regarding the assassination plot prior to the crash, and d) at the airport concerning what witnesses saw three days before Kennedy’s plane took off. Collectively, they tell a different story than the media–one that might ultimately rival the political intrigue surrounding ancient Rome’s ruling Caesars.

The decision to come forward

Click Here

After observing that the Division 4 JFK Jr. preliminary report (filed three days after the crash, but later leaked within the intelligence community for a number of years) had remained online for the last six months, contact was made with stewwebb.com where we first saw the document. Webb had already faxed the document to more than 300 top electronic and print media outlets which collectively ignored it.

We inquired whether it would be possible to interview one of the active or retired Division 4 members who conducted the actual investigation and wrote the reports, given the rapidly gathering swirl of secret grand juries.

A former member of the Division 4 International Murder Investigative team named Delbert, who helped write the reports and interview witnesses, was asked to come forward by Stewart Webb and was subsequently contacted by TomFlocco.com, consenting to several interviews to discuss his findings in the leaked preliminary report and reveal specific names and evidence details contained in the final classified report which has been withheld from the American people.

Delbert told us today that he cringes when he reads the report and thinks about it being in ‘general’ circulation: “It was NEVER meant for general dissemination and consumption; and frankly, I’m somewhat appalled when I think of it being ‘out there.’ The final report was cleaned up grammatically and the actual facts presented in a much clearer, concise manner leaving out any speculation. But I regret this report ever getting out.”

Grand jury activity notwithstanding, what piqued our initial interest was a feeling that the Division 4 team, with experience tracking murderers across the globe and placed on loan to assist an overwhelmed FBI for the JFK Jr. probe–had apparently conducted an investigation far more complete than what the mainstream media was telling its trusting viewers and readers.

Not unexpectedly, the team was told to “back off,“ since its leaked preliminary report written by Delbert and another team member revealed specific contradictory evidence, calling JFK Jr.‘s death to be a “political assassination of the highest order.”

Division 4 investigative team’s past exploits can currently be seen on the Discovery Channel in “The Hunt for the Serpent,” about a serial killer they chased through Nepal, India, Pakistan and China; but the team also became well-known for a chase through the Hudson Valley into Canada before capturing the Green Valley killer who had murdered 43 young prostitutes. As part of this international version of the FBI, the team specializes in tracking serial killers and pedophiles across foreign boundaries.

The ‘Phoenix Project’ and assassinations

Years prior to serving on this team for three years, Delbert said he was a member of the U.S. Army Special Forces, attached to the Phoenix Project / Operation, on orders to “destabilize targeted governments by murdering government officials, elites, professionals, bankers, military leaders, teachers, professors and medical professionals.”

“This started in Vietnam and then moved to Central America,” said Delbert, adding “I was part of what we called the Bush-Clinton New World Order takeover to place in power selected individuals who received their marching orders directly from the U.S. government. Plain and simple, Project Phoenix required Americans to kill off innocent people to place in power those selected by the U.S. ruling elite; but I left, finding it very objectionable.”

“These activities are still going on today,” said the intelligence insider. “America now uses FBI Division 5, CIA Division 4, and elements from within the Department of Defense (DOD) and Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for its dirty work. Five-man Delta teams made up of nationals from Mexico and Ecuador are being trained for house-to-house extraction and murder of American citizens–when the day comes that Martial Law is declared and what little is left of our Constitution is scrapped.“

“These (elements) are counter-intelligence goon squads of trained assassins which engage in covert operations both inside and outside the United States–with or without the knowledge of Congress which is supposed to be restraining them from actions against our own citizens. They’re out of control–just a marvelous group of human beings,” said the former intelligence veteran.

With a measure of insight into Delbert’s background and credibility, we asked him to talk about Division 4’s JFK Jr. findings, the specific content of the team’s written accounts and the details of the assassination plot.

The preliminary and final reports

The preliminary report and our three interviews with Delbert provide an open window template through which to view previous evidence that could point to prosecutable obstruction of justice by a grand jury regarding past FBI probes of major political figures who also died in plane crashes or in another manner. Ample evidence indicates that Congress has permitted the Bureau to serve as a private taxpayer-funded political cover-up arm for each White House.

A grand jury itself presents what amounts to a citizen-controlled fourth branch of government, set aside by founding fathers as a necessary precaution against corruption, obstruction of justice and/or treason on the part of the Supreme Court, White House and Congress -acting separately or in concert. Individuals talking to sources close to the grand jury told us that citizen panelists are currently reviewing powerful evidence with explosive documents and are dead-serious about cleansing the government.

A case in point for a grand jury to become operational would occur if, for example, Fitzgerald had witnesses who could corroborate that members of the Supreme Court received financial bribes in 2000 to install George W. Bush in the White House [ Part 1 / Part 2 ], or if Florida’s elected officials destroyed voter ballots to prevent Al Gore from becoming the duly elected president for the same reason. In short, evidence would be collected and the grand jury would hear testimony.

While John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. was reported to have died in an accidental plane crash on July 16, 1999, Division 4’s preliminary report reveals careful details dissimilar to those reported by news outlets, indicating what the team described in its report as “classic media disinformation, if not outright lies” pertaining to suspect circumstances surrounding the death of the only son of President John F. Kennedy who was himself assassinated on November 22, 1963 under a similar investigative cloud.

Most families of well-known politicians killed in “accidental” plane crashes were not afforded the opportunity of having a separate outside agency like Division 4 to investigate the evidence of their loved one‘s death as in the case of the son of an assassinated president. The prelim report summary is revealing:“Subject was a qualified pilot, in control of his flight, flying a reasonably new aircraft, in excellent condition. Visibility was 8 miles. Wind, calm. All indication from Forensics and Physical evidence investigations lend themselves to a violent explosion, either from an altitude or barometric pressure device, or from a Particle Beam laser. [Delbert said Particle Beam laser was left out of final classified report] Aircraft ‘broke up’ in mid-air, as evidenced by wide spread debris gathered from the ocean and several different beaches. This can only be caused by an onboard explosion, or an attack by a missile or Laser. [Delbert said missile and Laser were left out of final report] Considering the nature of current political leanings of subject and today’s political atmosphere in America, and the before-mentioned facts, there is little doubt that subject was assassinated. In fact, team [Interpol Serial Killer Alpha Team] considers this a Political Assassination of the highest order. It was meant to alleviate a potential threat to the ruling elite. And it succeeded.” [From the JFK Jr. preliminary report, filed on July 19, 1999. This document has been authenticated by several intelligence agents; and we were told copies have been passed around the intelligence community for several years.]

Four team members and two from another U.S. law enforcement agency who jointly participated in producing the final classified report, filed on August 5, 1999, revealed startling evidence which will prevent a continued cover-up.

The six members of the Division 4 team and others will have to be protected and then subpoenaed for sealed testimony; and the grand jury will also need to hear the testimony of scores of the team’s interviewed citizen witnesses who have thus far remained understandably silent about what they saw and heard regarding JFK Jr.’s tragic death.

Delbert said the team’s probe was rigorous. We found it staggering:

“a) 30-40 witnesses were thoroughly interviewed
b) Ten individuals said they actually saw JFK Jr.‘s plane explode in mid-air

Essex County Airport in Caldwell, New Jersey

c) Two witnesses told the team they saw George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush at the Essex County, New Jersey airport with Israeli Mossad agent Michael Harari and another Mossad agent who were both seen standing next to JFK Jr.’s Cessna–all four were at the airport just two days before the doomed plane took off with JFK, Jr., his pregnant wife and her sister
d) Several witnesses testified they overheard the murder plot being discussed in the White House oval office
e) One ‘company’ (CIA) witness at the scene saw the bodies and the damaged plane and told the team a mid-air explosion caused the crash
f) Approximately 150 witnesses gave individual depositions and signed statements for the final report
g) Three flight instructors who worked with JFK Jr. testified he was an excellent pilot and had logged a huge number of flying hours since being licensed–he loved to fly and was that good.”

Delbert told us “At the end of July, 1999, during the final phase of our investigation, we talked to several individual sources in the White House who consented to be interviewed as witnesses.”

“We included their testimony in the final draft of the report which was classified until 2025–not currently available to any living individual,“ said the former operative.

“Since concrete evidence of a plot involving three presidents and a current senator in the assassination of John F. Kennedy’s son–who the report said they perceived as a political threat and future rival–would not exactly inspire public confidence in the government, it’s probable that the American people will never see our final un-redacted report,” said Delbert, “unless there are grand jury murder indictments and a public trial.”

The Players

“The White House sources we interviewed overheard conversations involving individuals who made the decision to murder JFK, Jr.,” said Delbert, who joined three Division 4 fellow operatives and two other federal agency officials in alleging the following names in the final classified report as having participated in planning the murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. after the team had interviewed all the witnesses involved in the case:

The Division 4 team member told us “The meeting to discuss the murder occurred in the White House oval office. The subjects named in the report who participated in ordering the murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. were President Clinton and his wife Hillary–both in the room, former Attorney General Janet Reno–also in the room and who JFK Jr. had publicly called to task for her role in Waco and Ruby Ridge operations, FBI Director Louis Freeh–in the room, and former President George H. W. Bush, Lawrence Rockefeller (now deceased), and three Inner Circle Council of Thirteen members who were all teleconferenced into the oval office discussion via secure White House phone lines.“

Quietly taken aback by the revelations, we asked Delbert to summarize the content of the alleged oval office murder plot overheard by the team’s interviewed witness sources, including witnesses assigned to White House domestic security:

“a) Conversation about JFK Jr.’s magazine GEORGE becoming a political vehicle which could threaten ruling elite families and expose past White House crimes
b) Discussions about blowing up his Cessna, John Jr.’s vulnerability and even carelessness about his plane’s security when warned that suspicious individuals had previously been seen lurking around his plane at the airport
c) Attorney General Reno’s problems with JFK Jr. criticizing Waco and Ruby Ridge
d) Speculation about who John Jr. would pick to run against in 2000–Hillary Clinton or George W. Bush
e) Discussion about political family factions and relationships between federal law enforcement, national security and intelligence agencies
f) Discussion about how the assassination would take place, starting at the airport–with specific Mossad agents named by the subject conspirators without mentioning the actual Israeli agency
g) General agreement that John, Jr. had become over-zealous in planning to employ GEORGE to circuitously expose those who were behind the assassination of his father.”

White House-controlled foreign assassination teams in America

As we listened without comment, the Division 4 operative continued: “We were told by the same White House sources we interviewed that FBI Director Freeh left the oval office after the murder plot was discussed and met with Israeli Mossad agent Michael Harari who then met with his supervisor, General Rafael Eitan, considered to be one of the most dangerous Israeli agents who ever lived,” stated Delbert.

Delbert explained that testimony by White House and airport witnesses and others will provide outrageous but credible grand jury evidence that three United States presidents have their own private Israeli Mossad assassins–as well as assassins from several American federal government agencies–and will use them to commit treason and murder against other Americans perceived to pose a political threat to their power, a fact surely to horrify Jewish-Americans and all U.S. citizens.

“I had heard that even our own FBI agents literally trembled at the fear of being assigned to watch General Eitan’s movements, since collaborating congressional oversight allowed him to freely enter the United States at any time, using passports under a different name,” the Division 4 special investigative team member said.

[One of the most outrageous documents this writer has ever seen, confirming the existence of Michael Harari and his nefarious Bush-connected activities, was the Colonel Cutolo / Colonel Corone Court Deposition, which we found on www. stewwebb.com.]

Delbert continued his shocking narrative, “About three days before John’s plane took off and exploded in mid-air, Michael Harari, and another Mossad agent were seen with former President George H. W. Bush and his son Texas Governor George W. Bush at the Essex County, New Jersey airport where John Jr. kept his plane.” This fact was also confirmed by separate U.S. intelligence sources who are also willing to testify before a grand jury.
[click here to read more about Harari’s U.S. activities in the Cutolo Affadavit.htm also found at stewwebb.com]

“All four were positively identified by an aircraft mechanic and a maintenance worker we interviewed for the final classified report; but we didn’t include their names or the names of some other key witnesses so that there would be citizens left to testify in case the Clintons or Bushes started having people murdered,” said the former Special Forces member.

Delbert’s chilling words provided concrete and credible proof that congressional oversight over counterfeit immigration documents acquired by assassins and terrorists, wide-open U.S. borders and homeland “security“ is so seriously flawed, broken down and corrupted that Senate and House members are permitting known foreign murderers to move around America at will.

Given the state-side depletion of National Guard and Reserve troops which renders the U.S. more vulnerable to foreign enemies while pre-emptive war based on lies is being fought, the physical and economic security of the nation is problematic enough to assert that Senate and House members may literally be conspiring against their own constituents in favor of a clandestine world-wide agenda supported by assassination of “troublemakers,” political or otherwise.

The American-French Alliance (AFA), a tightly-knit and hushed organization of active intelligence community patriots from both countries, is said to be waging an under-the-radar-screen war to stop rogue elements and assassins in the FBI, CIA, DOD and DIA–supervised by the White House and directly linked to Al Qaeda and former CIA operative Tim Osman (also known as Osama bin Laden) but also British MI-6 agents from engaging in black operations throughout the United States.

According to intelligence sources who spoke with federal whistleblower Stewart Webb, the AFA reportedly killed General Eitan in October, 2004 for his role in stealing the U.S. atomic nuclear codes from the National Security Archives.

TomFlocco.com and other websites have previously reported circumstances surrounding an attempt by eight rogue British MI-6 agents to blow up the Chicago subway underneath the Everett Dirksen Federal Building where federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald and a grand jury are investigating multiple crimes and treason linked to the White House.

The physical evidence

“The preliminary Division 4 team report was written with my partner who has retired and returned to his own country. We were joined by two others from our team and two more from another federal agency in putting together the final report,” said Delbert.

“Our boss ordered us to re-write the final draft but we refused. We wanted to tell the truth; so they classified the (final report) until the year 2025 despite the fact that we had interviewed scores of witnesses who can corroborate all of our findings. This was August 5, 1999.”

“The obstruction of justice by our ‘upper management’ and the FBI caused so much chaos that they dissolved our team; then they, quite possibly along with the Clinton White House, tried to have me murdered within ten weeks at the end of October, 1999 while working in Belfast, Ireland. I was supposed to be in a car with a friend who was blown apart in the explosion,“ said Delbert.

“That explosion was meant either as a warning or an assassination attempt, and cost the life of not only my associate, but a friend of his as well; so I closed all my accounts, resigned from Division 4 and went underground by November, 1999, for six months,” he said–but not before devastating reports had been filed by a team of investigators experienced in tracking evidence and criminals all over the world:

Satellite Photo of the Essex Co. Airport.

[From the preliminary report] “Subject, John F. Kennedy, Jr. left Essex County Airport, Caldwell, New Jersey at 8:38 P.M. Friday, July 16, 1999 in a Piper Saratoga II TC. Aircraft was built in 1995, purchased last year by subject. It has been reported to have been in excellent condition–simple and comfortable to fly…Visibility was eight (8) miles–I say again visibility was eight (8) miles. Media reports of ‘hazy’ or ‘foggy’ conditions are untrue,” said the report.

“At 9:39 P.M. JFK radioed the Martha’s Vineyard Airport giving his location. Subject was completely calm, giving no indication of any difficulties, stating that he was making his final approach, no more than 10 miles from shore and 13 miles from the airport…When he radioed at 9:39 P.M., 17-18 miles West of Martha’s Vineyard, he was at 2,500 feet. When detected on radar 29 seconds later he was at 1,800 feet, 16 miles West of Martha’s Vineyard. He was then lost off radar. No MAYDAY was ever heard. Tower personnel at Martha’s Vineyard Airport verified previous data,” indicating an immediate catastrophic problem.

“Within app. 10 seconds of this final radio contact at 9:39 P.M., an aircraft fitting the description of the subject’s (aircraft) and in that same general location was identified on Radar by both Military personnel and Martha’s Vineyard Airport tower personnel as descending 1,200 feet in 12 seconds–a full, head-long dive, in other words. A reporter for the Vineyard Gazette newspaper told WCVB-TV in Boston that he was out walking Friday night about the time of the crash and say a “big white flash in the sky,” just off Philbin Beach. Luggage, a tire, plexiglass pieces of cowling have all washed up on Philbin Beach. Said reporter has now partially recanted his story by stating that ‘perhaps it was a bright light from an explosion, but he just cannot be sure.’ Reporter has been ‘gotten to, compromised. Unknown as to who, at this time.”

“Several local news reports initially (reported) that several people SAW and Heard an explosion in the air over the ocean South of Martha’s Vineyard towards Eastern Long Island, at the same time that subject’s plane ‘went missing.’ We have confirmed these reports by speaking with 4 of the witnesses who have asked to remain anonymous. Detected definite fear on their part.”

“All evidence at this time indicates that aircraft was in a fiery, head-long crash dive within seconds after the 9:39 radio transmission. Aircraft was equipped with a radar transponder that transmits a 4-digit ID code and the altitude. Aircraft contained a 406 MHz satellite Distress beacon which would have notified the FAA of exact lat. & long. Device was NOT Activated. Believe reason as aircraft disintegrated instantly.”

“Subject has been reported by all interviewed, including 3 flight instructors, to be an Excellent pilot who did not take chances. Subject had logged many hours and had acquired an abnormal amount of expertise for an individual holding a pilots license for only 15 months. In fact, it has been reported that JFK, Jr. had logged enough hours, and acquired enough expertise to qualify as a commercial pilot! He had passed instrument checks with no reported difficulties. Although subject did not like flying at night, all information indicated he did so efficiently. Media’s reports of ‘pilot error,’ ‘failed instrument test and checks’ and ‘scared to fly at night’ are patently untrue. Standard American Media disinformation.”

“When SK Alpha team began investigating weather anomalies and any possible phenomenon, (weather), Radar images/data that have proven useful in such investigations, to include the observations of Electromagnetic/radio frequency phenomena, were discovered to be missing from the archives for the Eastern Long Island/Martha’s Vineyard area during the two (2) critical hours in which JFK Jr.’s plane apparently crashed/disappeared. This is/was more than suspect. After demanding said data from air control personnel, and receiving stammering red-faced explanations as to it’s whereabouts, team notes data has been intentionally ‘misplaced,’ or in fact lost.”

“The head-rest, steering yoke, pieces of the cowling, plexiglass and carpeting were literally torn apart from/off the plane, floating up on Gay Head Beach. This indicates a mid-air explosion, not a stall and crash. Debris from the crash has also been washing up on the West end of Martha’s Vineyard, creating a very wide-spread area of destruction (in other words, the remains of the aircraft are spread out over a very large area of space on the Ocean, indicating a mid-air explosion, not a stall and crash).

“Recorded conversation with air traffic control all indicate a calm, relaxed pilot in full command of the flight, with no difficulties in the final approach. Seconds after the last transmission, the explosion was observed and contact was lost with subject’s plane.”

“Previously mentioned weather and electro-magnetic/radio frequency data has been lost or misplaced. Since this typically NEVER happens, a cover-up of some sort is strongly indicated….The wings of the aircraft were NOT torn off, which they would have been had subject’s plane gone into uncontrollable dive, as being reported by the American press….If aircraft had had engine trouble, as reported, it should /could have simply gone into a slow glide and made a soft-water landing….NO MAYDAY was ever heard, indicating catastrophic occurrence.”

“…Every indicator points towards JFK Jr. having ’had enough’ of this humiliation [report said threats and blackmailing of Kennedy family] and planned on turning his magazine ’George’ into a true political vehicle for change. For the American public, not the New World Order. In fact, he had already begun this process by publishing factual exposes on George Wallace and the Rabin assassination. This alone is enough to have gotten him killed.”….Subject had begun looking into his father’s murder, and had developed plans to slowly expose those involved (in his magazine).”

“The American press/mass media are now releasing news reports that are far from factual. In fact, they can be considered, at best, to be (classic) disinformation, if not outright lies. In the initial reports that were released, the essential truth of the situation, the facts were being released. However, what is now being reported is (essentially) leaving out the essence of truth and simply glossing over what actually occurred. Again, what we regard as standard American Press procedures, disinformation at best. This strongly indicates a cover-up, or else the truth would still be reported.”

“Although requested onsite by Federal agencies, team has been coerced to ‘back off,’ albeit subtly and quietly. This particular tactic speaks well for itself. We have not ‘backed off,’ nor will we.”

Al Gore’s close call

Astute political observers are aware that electoral assassinations are very difficult to prove; however, such “accidental” deaths often result in “clearing the field” of a contending threat, rival–or witness of wrongdoing which would discredit or expose a candidate. Thus the way would be paved for an assured (or at least easier) election victory to retain or gain power by removing a political rival from the scene–forever.

Given the Division 4 reports and witness testimony relating to the White House assassination plot, the Fitzgerald grand jury will also want to initiate a probe of the close, coincidental time-line nexus between John Jr.’s plane “accident” and Vice President Al Gore’s “close call” the week before on Air Force Two.

Most Americans are unaware that the Chicago Sun-Times reported that about one week before JFK, Jr’s death on July 16, 1999, Vice-President Al Gore’s Air Force Two jet lost power and had to make an emergency landing while flying through heavily congested air space near Chicago. Gore’s plane going down would have resulted in another pre-2000, election-related “accidental” death almost overlapping John F. Kennedy, Jr.

The Division 4 team’s White House crime family evidence alleging JFK, Jr.’s assassination plot is reminiscent of a scene in the legendary mafia movie The Godfather, when Michael Corleone orchestrated the simultaneous murders of his five crime family rivals during the exact hour he attended the baptism service for his Godchild.

Intelligence sources have alleged to us that Gore’s plane was vectored, possibly resulting in loss of cabin pressure related to some sort of software technology, in a failed attempt to “clear the field” for George W. Bush’s 2000 presidential race.

JFK

There is evidence to prove that George H. W. Bush was a member of the CIA on November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated–a fact Bush 41 has repeatedly denied, according to Federal whistleblower Stewart Webb.

In his book The Immaculate Deception–The Bush Crime Family Exposed [1991, America West Publishers, pp. 31-39], retired U.S. Army Brigadier General Russell Bowen refers to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) memo unearthed in 1977-78, dated seven days after the assassination on November 29, 1963, describing the full briefing given to “George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency” on the day after the [JFK] assassination. [When Bush 41 was just 39 years old]

[General Bowen was an original member of Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during the 1940s with George H. W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Allan Dulles and others who became known as the secretive “brown-shoe boys,” which later became the CIA. Webb revealed that General Bowen personally told him that Kissinger served as a duel spy for Germany and Russia during WWII before later becoming U.S. Secretary of State under President Nixon; and as of today, Bowen and Webb are still alive to testify and allege that such a spy can hold high U.S. office, the public none the wiser.]

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover wrote the memo [see link above] mentioning Bush; and curiously, Hoover met with others at the ranch of Texas oil baron Colin J. “Clint” Murchison, Jr. in Dallas, on the night before Kennedy was assassinated, according to retired Army Brigadier General William Penn Jones.

A FOIA lawsuit publicized an FBI report regarding a man identifying himself as “George H. W. Bush” who telephoned the FBI’s Houston office within hours of Kennedy’s death with information about a threat allegedly made against Kennedy by a young right-wing Republican, according to General Bowen.

The FBI report stated “On November 22, 1963, Mr. George H. W. Bush, 5535 Briar, Houston, Texas telephonically advised…that one James Parrott had been talking of killing the president when he comes to Houston.”

Since witnesses have connected George H. W. Bush to JFK Jr.’s airport and the White House assassination plot prior to his murder, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald would be negligent if the grand jury did not also probe the Hoover FOIA lawsuit evidence linking the ex-president to events surrounding the assassination of John Jr.‘s father, JFK.

All this gives rise to serious grand jury questions: Why has Bush 41 denied being in the CIA on November 22, 1963? Why was Bush [at the age of 39] fully briefed on JFK’s assassination on the day after the event? What does he know about Hoover’s meeting in Dallas on the night before? Who else was at the meeting? What did they discuss? Why did Hoover specifically name Bush in the memo?

George H. W. also denied being involved in Iran contra. But according to General Bowen, “investigators obtained copies of Colonel Oliver North’s diaries which documented Bush’s role as a CIA supervisor of the contra supply network. In 1988 Bush issued false statements to Congress, testifying he knew nothing about the illegal supply flights until late November, 1986; yet North’s diary shows Bush at the first planning meeting on August 6, 1985.”

Securing Justice

After considering the team’s gathered physical evidence, written testimony and our talks with Delbert, who had interviewed most of the investigation witnesses involved, rhetorical questions could be posed regarding how the mainstream media could be so controlled and manipulated that it would be able to cover up the obvious:

How come the media saw things differently than the Division 4 team? Were key editors, reporters and global media executives co-participants in obstructing justice by glossing over a political assassination? Will the media receive the same severe scrutiny by Phi Beta Kappa and Harvard Law grad Patrick Fitzgerald and his grand juries as the alleged perpetrators themselves?

While more than nine families in particular are literally hanging out there in physical jeopardy, knowing that witnesses, credible evidence and a classified report point to three U.S. Presidents and at least one Senator as having their own private teams of foreign assassins available to do their political bidding, the ball is now in Special Counsel Fitzgerald’s “court.” This, while Congress looks the other way, knowing it needs to be held accountable for gross corruption.

The pressure will be enormous on prosecutors and jurors alike. Witnesses and team members referred to herein will need to be afforded protection. That said, Fitzgerald and his staff of about 150 Assistant U.S. Attorneys possess the quintessential job description for probing White House felony families: regularly handling public corruption, narcotics trafficking, violent crime, jury tampering and white-collar fraud. But they must do their job.

Fitzgerald himself has played a personal role in many significant investigations involving financing terrorism, violent crime, narcotics, and gang prosecutions, particularly including U.S. v. John Gambino et. al., prosecuting crime family “capos and crews,” an ideal candidate to lead White House crime probes.

Given the mood of multiple intelligence sources understandably furious about what historians will say happened on their recent watch (the transfer of nuclear codes to China, the September 11 attacks and Oklahoma City bombing, an attempt to blow up the Chicago subway underneath Fitzgerald’s grand jury in the Dirksen building on July 18 and war under false pretenses), thousands of government agents are reportedly prepared to block obstruction and obfuscation if “deals are cut” or “private payoffs” are attempted in order to prevent the wheels of justice from turning.

There is a strange, unsettled feeling sweeping across the land. America seems to be aware that something big will happen this fall. Most can’t put their finger on it. But the markets know what’s coming.

Massive insider stock sales versus purchases were running $74 sold to each $1 of stock bought, right after TomFlocco.com alone reported that President Bush and Vice President Cheney had been indicted. Unknowing investors with automatically deducted pension fund and 401K contributions are still buying into the stock market while the turmoil of coming political upheaval is slowing festering like an inexorable cancer ready to claim its victim.

In February, 2005, corporate business executives, officers and directors sold $5 billion in personal stock, establishing a new market record for unloading insider securities in a single month. What do they know that the public doesn’t?

The stock market may be poised to reprise its 2000 collapse even as inside traders and government funds are now grabbing more of America’s wealth and financial security by quietly selling. Americans should heed Dubya-speak: “Fool me once, shame on you or me, fool me twice, uh… fool me twice… uh…. I won’t get fooled again.”

Gold has moved from $385 to about $450 an ounce over the last 6-8 months; and the metal’s rise in value indicates that some investors are buying gold so they won’t be left holding the old maid (inflated fiat paper currency) in the event of a protracted political crisis.

The interest rate yield curve on long bonds is virtually flat in the face of ten straight rate increases by Allan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve. Future trust in the financial stability of U.S. currency is exposed when a 10-year note draws about the same interest rate as a 30-year note, hence the flat yield curve. (We used to be nicely rewarded for letting the government hold our money for a longer period. But not now.)

The gold websites are reporting that China and Japan have not purchased U.S. Treasury securities since last January; and that 80-90% of our Treasuries are now purchased “off-shore,” indicating private sources, secretive countries, laundered drug money, or “printing press finance” to quietly prop up the economy.

During recent House Armed Services Committee hearings, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld admitted to Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-4-GA) that China has been financing the entire Iraq War by purchasing U.S. Treasury notes. How is this possible if China is not buying our Treasuries? Is Rumsfeld telling the truth? Why isn’t the American media holding his feet to the fire?

Prescient warnings notwithstanding, witnesses with evidence in the matter of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Jr. are available to testify and be evaluated in front of Patrick Fitzgerald, his staff of deputy career prosecutors, but most importantly, grand jury panels of American citizens who will listen and decide whether murder indictments are in fact warranted in light of Division 4′s evidence.

Fitzgerald and his grand juries are still operational in spite of the House, Senate and U.S. mainstream media, all of which will ignore this story, the evidence, the witnesses, and the preliminary and “classified” JFK, Jr. reports.

If approximately 150 witnesses and credible evidence is not enough to render proper justice in the assassination of the son of an assassinated U.S. President, then the American justice system is not worth the paper that the Constitution and the United States Code are written on; and it will be quite obvious that Patrick Fitzgerald was “gotten to,” and likely deserving of separate consequences.

However, all indications from intelligence sources confirm that Fitzgerald is a rather remarkable and heroic patriot who will not back down from his sworn duty. Given coming indictments against high officials in all three branches of government, the fourth branch (citizen grand juries) will be crucial this fall.

But then America was always supposed to be about the citizens–not powerful ruling elite families whose progeny have come to expect receipt of power, perks and privilege via noblesse oblige.

There is nothing noble about what some U.S. government leaders have done to America since November 22, 1963.

Purge the evil from among you.

TSA to police prom at Santa Fe High School

The logic of “security” maniacs

Talk about mission creep.

This is brilliant.

Here’s how it works:

1. Security personnel abuse students (especially attractive female students) during searches.

2. Students and their families rightfully sue the bastards and the idiots who employ them.

3. Judge orders the TSA to attend the next shake down to make sure it’s conducted professionally and legally.

Voila! TSA to police prom night. Yes, it’s insane. Yes, it’s really happening.

That ought to teach them to complain about security abuses, huh? Next time they complain, I’m sure the judge will assign a TSA agent to the girls’ bedrooms.

If you attempted to make up this stuff, no one would ever believe you.

The Judicial Lynching of Attorney Edgar J. Steele

A gaunt Edgar Steele appears here in prison garb.

“Judge Winmill would not allow the defense to call witnesses to prove the audio was fabricated. Nor would he allow those who heard the recordings to comment about the subject. The trial was show and nothing more.” —Dr. Al Banks

On May 5, a deluded jury of 11 women and one man found Idaho attorney Edgar J. Steele, 66, guilty of plotting the murder of his wife and mother-in-law and three related lesser charges. While planning his appeal, this First Amendment lawyer who stood up for the rights of the oppressed expects the “full book” to get thrown at him at sentencing in August. With failing health—and at his age—and without a successful appeal, he will likely die in prison. Steele was also found guilty of use of interstate commerce in commission of a crime, possession of a destructive device and tampering with a victim. No evidence was shown in court that he was ever in possession of the pipe bomb built by handyman Larry Fairfax, and the “tampering” charge came when he frantically spoke with his wife from jail warning her of what to say to authorities, believing that the recorded conversation between husband and wife would be “privileged,” but it was played for the jury anyway.

Jurors almost never get the whole story and are often the last to know facts of a case that might have swayed their vote to the other side.The biggest reverse influence in the Steele case would have been the knowledge that two experts, independent of each other, had reviewed the FBI recordings purporting to be Steele offering a payoff to Fairfax and emphatically stated that these digital recordings were contrived. In addition, both Cyndi Steele, wife of the accused and alleged victim, as well as her attorney, Wesley Hoyt, told this writer that the tapes played in the courtroom were not the same as she heard last summer or what were forwarded to Hoyt in March 2011. “They kept changing them every time the experts pointed out a discrepancy,” Hoyt said in the courtroom hallway during a recess.

When Mrs. Steele asked FBI agent Mike Sotka in July about listening to another recording he had told her about the previous month, he replied, “They are not ready yet.” She, of course, wondered at the time about what might have had to be “readied” about recordings done in previous months. She still has never heard what she was initially told would be available.

Testimony fromworld-renowned voice editing expert Dr. George Papcun of Santa Fe, N.M. and Dennis Walsh, a former NewYork City detective in charge of audio at the precinct level, was denied for different reasons by Judge Lynn Winmill. Walsh listed more than 300 faulty melds and even went so far as to state that his voice testing graphs, as accurate as fingerprints today, indicate that the voice claimed to be that of Steele is not his.

Shortly after this case broke in the summer of 2010, this reporter received correspondence from a former CIA operative tellingme that one common use of law enforcement’s talents in recent years has been with the creation of realistic but false videos, DVDs or audio recordings of individuals to be used as evidence evidence of a crime.

“Creating false evidence, with all the new technology, is one of our easiest duties today,” he wrote, “and what makes this misdirection work so well is that the strong personal moral code of average Americans cannot allow them to believe that their leaders have no honor and no integrity. They can’t imagine the depths of trickery and treachery to which their own leaders will stoop to deceive the world.” He went on to tell us that they sometimes entertain each other with ridiculous portrayals by taking a voice print of a man well known and in just a couple of hours having him onTV, for example, dancing on top of a pile of dead Catholic nuns and shouting that he’d just purchased 100 weapons of mass destruction from the Boy Scouts of America.

“You name it, we can create it,” he said.

Jurors also failed to realize, when the sales receipts surfaced as evidence, that when Fairfax was already selling silver to local dealers in April 2010, it was far more likely at that time to have been evidence of a theft from the Steeles’ home rather than funds given to him as a murder payoff by Steele.

Steele’s fate was probably sealed when the jury was denied access to the didactic testimony of the audio experts, but it will never be known to what degree his defense might have also failed him by discouraging rather than encouraging his plan to take the stand in his own defense. In any criminal case with nearly all of the evidence purely circumstantial, the jury wants and needs to hear from the defendant. But for some reason, Steele’s attorneys did not advise this, according to Steele himself via telephone from the jailhouse.

So just who plotted against whom? That Steele, 65, would want his wife murdered because he expected a 25-year-old Ukrainian woman that he had never met to run away with him seems off the chart. On the other hand, a bankrupt and about-to-lose-his-house Fairfax stealing the family’s silver from its secret hiding place that he worked around weekly reflects both motive and opportunity. Jailhouse inmate Darrell Hollingsworth was dogmatic and convincingly unflappable when he testified that Fairfax told him that the FBI had “made a deal” with him to frame Steele.

LITTLE-KNOWN FEDERAL STATUTES

Last September, when Colorado attorney Wesley Hoyt saw our story about the federal statutes in Title 5 allowing payoffs to witnesses for testimony that assist toward convicting a defendant, he was incredulous. Not satisfied without doing his own research, Hoyt examined the statutes and further endorsed the utter duplicity therein when he penned the foreword to a new book whose title depicts the Steele case as well as its own: A Cesspool of Judicial Corruption. Concerning the attacks on innocent, politically incorrect people, who speak out against government oppression, Hoyt says that the government agents, prosecutors and judges deliberately attack innocent individuals who criticize the NewWorld Order movement and that “the tie that binds” is a form of peer pressure mixed with legalized bribery that encourages government employees to stick together “even if their consciences tell them they are prosecuting an innocent person on false charges.”

He wrote: “Legalized bribery comes in the form of cash awards for government employees from $10,000 to $25,000 per conviction to ‘recognize and reward’ each official under 5 USC sections 4502, 4503 & 4504 and 5 USC 4302 to enhance their performances and for so-called ‘superior accomplishment’ or ‘a special act or service’ or if the act ‘achieves a significant reduction in paperwork.’The criteria are so loose, any employee can be given a cash award for almost anything. [Onemust] consider the power this law gives the head of each agency to manipulate employees. In addition, the government employee can also receive ‘time off from duty without loss of pay’ as a part of the reward for bringing down a politically incorrect person.”

The unfairness of these statutes is blatantly clear and would be just as unfair if benefiting the defendant in such a manner. However, the first question to Steele’s attorneys (and every defense attorney working a federal criminal trial in the future) would be why did they not ask every government witness that took the stand under oath whether it had been promised, inferred or any way suggested that they would receive a cash award should the defendant be found guilty? Could it be that they had been forewarned not to ask under threat of contempt?

“The Big Legal Secret, The Government Thinks We Are Animals”

Alex talks with constitutionalist Alfred Adask about a 60 Minutes hit piece demonizing patriots as domestic terrorists. Mr. Adask was interviewed by CBS for the piece. On Sunday, Adask wrote Am I About To Be Labeled a “Domestic Terrorist”?

There is some reason to believe that I may soon be portrayed as a “domestic terrorist”. This article is intended to blunt that portrayal.

• Last Friday, I received notice from the TV program 60 Minutes that today, Sunday, May 15th, A.D. 2011, (about 35 minutes from now) they’d air a segment that includes me. I haven’t seen the segment, so I don’t know how I’ll be portrayed—but I have reason to believe that I may be cast in a false light and/or defamed by tomorrow’s program.

The cause for my concern is the 60 Minutes description of the segment on their “Up Next” webpage:

“Sovereign Citizens – Anti-government American extremists who don’t pay taxes and ignore requirements like social security cards and drivers licenses are on the rise. Called sovereign citizens, some have become violent and the FBI considers them a domestic terror threat. Byron Pitts reports. Clem Taylor is the producer.”

9/11 Responders Warned They Will Be Screened By FBI’s Terrorism Watch List (EXCLUSIVE)

September 11, 2001

WW~Notes:  Notice that the Huffington Post still refers to Al-Qaeda being responsible for 9/11.  It is lies such as this that continue to influence the psyche of the uninformed so that they will never discover the truth as to whom were the actual perpetrators.

WASHINGTON — A provision in the new 9/11 health bill may be adding insult to injury for people who fell sick after their service in the aftermath of the 2001 Al Qaeda attacks, The Huffington Post has learned.

The tens of thousands of cops, firefighters, construction workers and others who survived the worst terrorist assault in U.S. history and risked their lives in its wake will soon be informed that their names must be run through the FBI’s terrorism watch list, according to a letter obtained by HuffPost.

Any of the responders who are not compared to the database of suspected terrorists would be barred from getting treatment for the numerous, worsening ailments that the James Zadroga 9/11 Health And Compensation Law was passed to address.

It’s a requirement that was tacked onto the law during the bitter debates over it last year.

The letter from Dr. John Howard, director of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, informs medical providers and administrators that they should begin letting patients know before the new program kicks in this July.

“This is absurd,” said Glen Kline, a former NYPD emergency services officer. “It’s silly. It’s stupid. It’s asinine.”

“It’s comical at best, and I think it’s an insult to everyone who worked on The Pile and is sick and suffering from 9/11,” said John Feal, a former construction worker who lost half a foot at Ground Zero and runs the advocacy group Fealgood Foundation.

The provision was added in an amendment by Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) during the heated debate over the bill in the House Energy and Commerce Committee last May.

Sept. 11 responders in the committee room at the time mostly shook their heads at the move, which Democrats accepted on a voice vote after battling to bar other amendments on abortion and immigration that might have killed the bill.

But suddenly the point is no longer just a strategic concession to get a law passed.

As doctors and administrators begin acting on the federal instructions, participants in the 9/11 treatment and monitoring programs will soon be told that their names, places of birth, addresses, government ID numbers and other personal data will be provided to the FBI to ensure they are not terrorists.

Howard’s instructions include a sample letter to responders designed to minimize alarm.

“Although neither we nor [the Centers for Disease Control]/NIOSH anticipate the name of any individual in the current Programs will be on the list, CDC/NIOSH is expressly required by law to implement this particular requirement of the Act,” it says.

“Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to working with you and ensuring that you continue to receive uninterrupted services under the new WTC Health Program,” it concludes.

Feal, who counts hundreds of first responders in his foundation’s membership, predicted the letters would not go over well.

“When cops and firefighters get this at home, they’re going to hit the roof,” he said.

Kline, who sits on the Fealgood Foundation’s board, said he personally wasn’t offended, but couldn’t think of a good reason for cops and firefighters to be screened by the FBI in order to keep getting treatment.

“I mean, who are we even talking about — the undocumented workers who cleaned the office buildings?” wondered Kline Thursday. “We know who all the cops, firefighters and construction workers were. They’re all documented.

“Is the idea that a terrorist stayed to help clean up? And then stayed all these years to try and get benefits?” he asked. “In all the things I’ve seen out of Washington, this probably takes the cake.”

Some are more understanding.

“Do we want terrorists getting money? No,” said Anthony Flammia, a former NYPD Highway Patrol officer and Sept. 11 responder. “How do you know if there were any terrorists there? Were they there as observers, watching? Probably.”

But he noted that his perspective likely would not be shared, especially if people whose names are similar to actual terror suspects get flagged, as happens with air travelers.

“I’ve got nothing to hide, so it’s no big deal for me, but there’s got to be safeguards in place to protect the people who are innocent,” Flammia said. “It’s going to be controversial,” he added. “It’s probably going to create an uproar, but I think it will dissipate. I hope they’re ready to answer people’s questions.”

Congressman Stearns said in a statement that his intent was to answer exactly the questions raised by Flammia.

“This amendment was adopted in the full Energy and Commerce Committee without opposition and it merely requires that the names of those receiving health benefits be cross-checked with the terrorist watch list to ensure that no terrorists get these benefits,” Stearns said.

“These benefits are not just for our first responders; nearly anyone who was in the vicinity or worked on a cleanup crew afterward is eligible,” he noted.

The prohibition is included in two parts of the bill. One specifically covers responders, while the other deals with all survivors, including office workers, bystanders and residents.

Feal acknowledged that the terrorist screening has to be done because it is the law, and that the letters have to go out.

But he holds Stearns responsible, as well as several other Republicans who were hostile to the 9/11 bill, and tried to tack all manner of amendments onto it.

“I think Congressman Stearns is stabbing at pettiness. He’s a buffoon,” Feal said. “We get sicker and die, and they’re going to disseminate a letter wondering whether we’re terrorists or not. … I think everybody needs to start showing a little more compassion.”

FBI Raids Across the U.S.

Days of action planned after FBI raids on activists

Report, The Electronic Intifada, 30 September 2010

Chicagoans protest against the FBI raids, 27 September 2010. (Maureen Clare Murphy)

Activists are planning new actions after rallies took place in dozens of cities across the United States to protest raids by the FBI on homes of anti-war and Palestine and Colombia solidarity activists in Minneapolis and Chicago last week. The FBI also subpoenaed at least 14 activists in Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan to testify at a grand jury.

Hundreds of protestors gathered outside FBI offices in Chicago and Minneapolis on Monday, 27 September and media reported on similar rallies in other cities including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Kalamazoo and Dallas. Organizers have announced a national call-in day to the US president and attorney general on 4 October and day of action on 5 October in order to maintain pressure on the US government to end the raids and grand jury proceedings.

“Those targeted [by the FBI raids] are well-known leaders in the anti-war movement and many helped to organize the huge protest against the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota in September 2008,” the newly-formed Committee to Stop FBI Repression said in a statement. It added that the targeted activists “are involved with many groups, including the Palestine Solidarity Group, Students for a Democratic Society, the Twin-Cities Anti-War Committee, the Colombia Action Network, Fight Back! newspaper, the Freedom Road Socialist Organization and the National Committee to Free Ricardo Palmera” (“Support Anti-war and International Solidarity Activists” leaflet [PDF])

No arrests or charges were made in the raids and the FBI has described there to be “no imminent threat” to the public, leading the targets of the raids and supporters to describe the FBI’s investigation as a “giant fishing expedition” intended to intimidate the anti-war and solidarity movements.

Just days before the raids, the US Justice Department Inspector General released a 289-page report in which it criticized the FBI for spying on activists between 2002 and 2006. The report found that “The FBI improperly spied on American activists involved in First Amendment-protected activities and mischaracterized nonviolent civil disobedience as terrorism which improperly placed activists on terrorist watch lists” (“FBI improperly spied on activists, says Justice Department Inspector General,” American Civil Liberties Union, 20 September 2010).

The Justice Department’s investigation, undertaken after a Freedom of Information Act request by the American Civil Liberties Union, “uncovered evidence that the FBI was chilling political association and improperly investigating peaceful advocacy groups.”

The FBI claims that its latest raids in Chicago and Minneapolis are related to an investigation concerning “material support of terrorism,” and demands in the subpoenas any information the targets might hold related to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and Hizballah, all considered “terrorist organizations” by the US State Department.

In June of this year, the Supreme Court expanded the definition of “material support” to include “expert advice,” “training,” “service” and “personnel,” terms criticized by law groups as being vague, and threatening the constitutional right to free speech. This broad definition of “material support” could even include such activities as specifically advising a group considered “terrorist” by the US to abandon violence and use strictly nonviolent means to achieve its goals.

During a Minneapolis rally against the raids, National Lawyers Guild member Bruce Nestor illustrated the sweeping scope of the material support law. Nestor said that had the law been in effect during the South Africa anti-apartheid movement, when US President Ronald Reagan had declared Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress a “terrorist organization,” “the entire anti-apartheid movement would have been guilty of providing material support for terrorism” (Video available on YouTube).

Minnesota activist Tracy Molm, whose home was raided, told Al-Jazeera English that the FBI is “trying to intimidate us who are standing in solidarity with the people of Palestine and Colombia” (“FBI targets US Palestine activists,” 29 September 2010). Protesters in several cities carried signs reading, “From Colombia to Palestine, Solidarity is not a Crime.”

The Committee to Stop FBI Repression is calling for a national call-in day on Monday, 4 October to US President Barack Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder. They are asking supporters to demand that the government stop the repression against anti-war and international solidarity activists, return all confiscated materials and call for an end the grand jury proceedings against the activists. The national committee is also calling for solidarity actions at FBI and federal buildings throughout the US on Tuesday, 5 October, the first federal grand jury court date. Activists in Chicago, where the first of the subpoenaed activists are to report to a grand jury, are planning a day-long vigil starting at 8:30am that day.
