MORE PRETENSE OF REPRESENTATION & NEW 9/11 LAWSUIT
March 6, 2006
A few months after I returned, I had a lengthy phone conversation with one of my dearest friends, Brigadier General Ben Partin, U.S.A.F. (Ret). Ben is no conspiracy whacko (bio here) and is one of the most decent, honorable people I've ever had the honor of knowing. When I brought up this issue, Ben said that not too long ago he was at a luncheon for retired military officers and Col. Donn de Grand-Pre was there; he also said that he had known Col. de Grand-Pre for twenty years and never knew him to lie about anything. Ben asked Col. de Grand-Pre face to face about the shoot down of Flight 93 and the response was: Yes, he interviewed the pilot who shot down Flight 93 and there's no question whatsoever that Flight 93 was deliberately shot down in a no win situation. Once again, the only way to absolutely confirm this to the satisfaction of the American people and the families who lost loved ones on Flight 93, is to do the same thing as I have suggested above regarding CSM Eric L. Haney's knowledge that Bin Laden is dead.
During the McKinney hearings on 9/11, the question of the Pentagon video snatched by the FBI from the Pentagon gas station, the Sheraton and VDOT (Virginia Department of Transportation) was raised; I have covered these hearings in past columns. Here's a real shocker for Dick Cheney's blood pressure: Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit on February 22, 2006, to obtain those videos:
"Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it filed a lawsuit on February 22, 2006, against the Department of Defense to force the release of a video that allegedly shows United Flight 77 striking the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Judicial Watch seeks the information in part to help put to rest conspiracy theories that a government drone or missile hit the Pentagon rather than the hijacked United airplane."
While Judicial Watch lists their reason for this lawsuit as an attempt to "put to rest conspiracy theories," I am absolutely delighted. JW had previously filed a FOIA on this issue:
"Judicial Watch originally filed a Freedom of Information Act request on December 15, 2004, seeking all records pertaining to camera recordings from the Sheraton National Hotel, the Nexcomm/Citgo gas station, Pentagon security cameras and the Virginia Department of Transportation. The Department of Defense admitted in a January 26, 2005 letter that it possessed a videotape responsive to Judicial Watch's request. However, the Pentagon advised that the video is exempt from release because it is, "part of an ongoing investigation involving Zacarias Moussaoui."
Of course this corrupt administration would use their endless circus called Zacarias Moussaoui as their excuse not to hand over those videos - anything to continue to stall, obfuscate and lie. It's been four and one half years since 9/11. Releasing those videos has nothing to do with any ongoing investigation and as JW as so succinctly and correctly pointed out: DOD has no jurisdiction over the Moussaoui investigation. As far as I'm concerned, there are reasonable questions about that crime scene and what happened. Those videos will clearly show the truth - not more endless speculation or conspiracy theories, but hard, visual truth and we the people have the absolute right to the full truth.
There is also a new video available on-line which I encourage everyone to take the time to watch and then tell ten friends to please do the same. This isn't some wacky made up presentation. It's the actual news clips from ground zero, comments and statements made by fire fighters in the towers as events unfolded. I can tell you after watching this video all the way through twice, it is eerily reminiscent of the OKC bombing. These fire fighters have no reason to lie about what they were hearing and experiencing. That video can be viewed here.
A second video available on line that I recommend you watch can be found here. These are more eyewitness accounts and unedited film that will shock many.
There is also an intriguing allegation being made that a window of opportunity was made available for the possible planting of explosive devices in the towers along with Richter scale readings of 2.1 and 2.3 - the same thing that was discovered after the OKC bombing; see here:
"The weekend before the 9/11 WTC demolition, all power was shut down to install "computer cables." No one was allowed inside and all security cameras and alarms had no power for 30 hours. Computer cables don't connect with building electricity, so the need to turn off and close both towers to do so is indicative of another motive, like planting charges without alarms and video surveillance. Marvin Bush, brother to President George and Jeb, was a principal in Securacom, which was in charge of security for the World Trade Center. Didn't hear that on the TV news, did you?"
How to verify this information? The family members who lost loved ones need to file a Freedom of Information Act request under the the FOIA laws for the State of New York or a lawsuit by the families. Eliot Spitzer, the current Attorney General for the State of New York has shown his cowardice by refusing to convene a grand jury, so it will have to be up to the families to pursue this lead. If there was work done in the basement of those towers - especially building 7 - then we the people have the right to see exactly what work was done (work orders) and the entire paper trail.
While these fools in Congress continue "business as usual," our soldiers continue to die for Bush's lies:
"Philippe Sands, a QC and professor of international law at University College, London, unearthed documents that shadow even the Downing Street memo in terms of direct and unequivocal confirmation that the war was deliberate and planned from the very start and that any pretext to garner international support for it would be considered and utilized."
The corruption in Iraq is running into the tens of billions of borrowed dollars - the debt of which is now on your back and has doomed your children and grand babies to nothing more than indentured slaves. Not to mention the crime against humanity: the use of depleted uranium in the Middle East. I have written about this before, but here is further substantiation of the horrors this government has unleashed upon the world. Many sent me mail after the first time I wrote about DU and said it isn't true. It is and our soldiers are coming home dying from it and we will see more of the same as we saw after Gulf War I: children of soldiers born with horrible deformities. Perhaps Shallow Shawn Hannity or the other Bush cheerleaders will step forward with their millions and help these families deal with the horrors visited upon them and their precious babies - all in the same of "Get Saddam!"
"The court papers depict a sordid exercise in greed and corruption that was spread much more widely that previously known. Including the four people already arrested, the papers indicate that a minimum of three other still unnamed co-conspirators also played a role in the scheme. In order to give more than $8 million in contracts and millions more in stolen cash to Mr. Bloom, the papers say, the conspirators accepted bribes, valuable goods and other favors.
"Two of the Americans already arrested, Lt. Col. Debra Harrison and Lt. Col. Michael Wheeler, are senior Army reserve officers. The court papers indicate that the remaining unnamed co-conspirators are also Army reserve officers, for a total of at least five officers involved. But the papers suggest that others, identified only by opaque designations like "person H," may also have been involved in one way or another.
"The goods included first-class plane tickets, watches and other jewelry, alcohol and cigars, the court papers say. They add that Mr. Bloom kept a villa in Baghdad where women dispensed "sexual favors" in exchange for official actions in his favor or for refraining from exposing the scheme.
"Mr. Stein is accused of stealing outright at least $2 million in cash of American taxpayer money and Iraqi money that had been set aside for the reconstruction of Iraq by the American occupation. He also accepted more than $1 million in bribes and at least $600,000 of additional goods and cash that were the property of the C.P.A., the papers say."
said to get disputed Iraq costs
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. Army has decided to reimburse a Halliburton Co. subsidiary for nearly all of the $263 million in disputed costs over a contract to deliver fuel and repair oil equipment in Iraq, the New York Times reported Monday. Citing Army officials, the Times said the military had decided to pay Halliburton engineering and construction unit Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR) all but $10 million of the costs which Pentagon auditors had identified as potentially inflated or unsupported by documentation. Halliburton (Research), formerly led by Vice President Dick Cheney, has been criticized for its work in Iraq, particularly for some contracts awarded on a "no-bid" or noncompetitive basis.
"The disputed costs reported by the Times were part of a $2.4 billion no-bid contract in Iraq. Army officials said that while some actions by KBR had driven up costs, the company had done as well as could be expected under the chaotic conditions of war, according to the Times report. Under the type of contract awarded to KBR, "the contractor is not required to perform perfectly to be entitled to reimbursement," Rhonda James, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, was quoted in the report as saying."
Just two in a thousand columns on the massive fleecing of the American taxpayer for this phony "war of liberation" and unconstitutional nation building. Since there is no money in the U.S. Treasury, every penny has to be borrowed from the private banking cartel (FED). How they must laugh at us. All of this going on while the American people snooze on: Last week I was at Macy's department store to purchase some Chanel face cream. I asked the well groomed, very polite sales lady what she thought about the Senate voting 89-10 to pass the Patriot Act that day? Her reply, "Oh, is that bad? I really haven't heard about this act, what is it?" I wasn't even speechless, just disgusted that any American could be so detached from the real world that they don't even know what the Patriot Act is, much less how it might affect their life.
And, the grand finale that should scare the Hell out of everyone:
"Confirming continuing congressional allegations, a General Accounting Office (GAO) report says that until June of this year, security at the nation's top laboratory for deadly animal diseases was dangerously lax. ....This report is not just a wake-up call; it's a blaring alarm," said Rep. Tim Bishop (D-NY), a persistent critic whose district includes the Plum Island Animal Disease Center...The probe revealed that USDA officials once allowed eight foreign scientists free rein in the biocontainment area where diseases are stored, even though they had never undergone mandatory federal background checks. Foreign students attending classes at the facility never underwent such checks either." Guess who is running the show there? Yep. Department of Homeland Security. Sleep well tonight.
Prepare yourselves, fellow Americans. The road ahead is going to get very dicey. As the truth reaches more and more Americans about 9/11, the closer we get to a backlash by this administration in order to re-instill fear in the American people and justification to test martial law.
