Pat Tillman Was Executed

New Evidence Clearly Indicates Pat Tillman Was Executed

If this isn't a murder case, why is the "Decider Guy" invoking "executive privilege"? Let all the liars be shot! I'm getting tired of this crap. Pat Tillman has 3 bullet holes in a 2-inch diameter pattern on his forehead, fired from 10 meters away and nobody can tell the family what happened? Why all the lies and redacted testimony? It's time for the liars to come clean or be executed for treason.
Astounding new details surrounding the death of Pat Tillman clearly indicate that top brass decided to execute the former pro football star in cold blood to prevent him from returning home and becoming an anti-war icon.

These same criminals then engaged in a sophisticated conspiracy to create a phony "friendly fire" cover story.

Shocking new facts emerged about the case last night but were bizarrely underplayed by the Associated Press under nondescript headlines like 'New Details on Tillman's Death' - a complete disservice to the horrific implications that the new evidence carries.

Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman's forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player's death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

"The medical evidence did not match up with the, with the scenario as described," a doctor who examined Tillman's body after he was killed on the battlefield in Afghanistan in 2004 told investigators.

The doctors - whose names were blacked out - said that the bullet holes were so close together that it appeared the Army Ranger was cut down by an M-16 fired from a mere 10 yards or so away.
The report also states that "No evidence at all of enemy fire was found at the scene - no one was hit by enemy fire, nor was any government equipment struck."
The article also reveals that "Army attorneys sent each other congratulatory e-mails for keeping criminal investigators at bay as the Army conducted an internal friendly-fire investigation that resulted in administrative, or non-criminal, punishments."
So there was no evidence whatsoever of friendly fire, but the ballistics data clearly indicated that the three head shots had been fired from just 10 yards away and then the Army tried to concoct a hoax friendly fire story and sent gloating back-slapping e mails congratulating each other on their success while preventing the doctors from exploring the possibility of murder. How can any sane and rational individual weigh this evidence and not come to the conclusion that Tillman was deliberately gunned down in cold blood?

The evidence points directly to it and the motivation is clear - Tillman abandoned a lucrative career in pro-football immediately after 9/11 because he felt a rampaging patriotic urge to defend his country, and became a poster child for the war on terror as a result. But when he discovered that the invasion of Iraq was based on a mountain of lies and deceit and had nothing to do with defending America, he became infuriated and was ready to return home to become an anti-war hero.

As far back as March 2003, immediately after the invasion, Tillman famously told his comrade Spc. Russell Baer, "You know, this war is so fucking illegal," and urged his entire platoon to vote against Bush in the 2004 election. Far from the gung-ho gruff stereotype attributed to him, Tillman was actually a fiercely intellectual man with the courage of his convictions firmly in place.

Tillman had even begun to arrange meetings with anti-war icons like Noam Chomsky upon his return to America before his death cut short any aspirations of becoming a focal point for anti-war sentiment.

According to Daily Kos, Wesley Clark appeared on Keith Olbermann's Countdown last night and stated that "the orders came from the very top" to murder Tillman as he was a political symbol and his opposition to the war in Iraq would have rallied the population around supporting immediate withdrawal.

The notion that the U.S. government gave orders for Army top brass to execute Pat Tillman in cold blood is the most damaging indictment of the Iraq war since it began, trumping the lies about weapons of mass destruction tenfold, but if the establishment media continue to soft-peddle and steam-valve one of the biggest stories of the century its impact will be completely diluted.

It is up to us to make this story go viral because the implications are so dire that they could act as the final death knell for the blood-soaked and illegal occupation of Iraq and become the clarion call to bring our troops home.

Quote of the day "
Of course, as we know, the process of talibanization was a collaborative effort between the CIA and the ISI. CNN, of course, does not bother to inform us of this crucial fact."
WASHINGTON – The highly trafficked "progressive" website DailyKos, which boasts contributors including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is suggesting football star Pat Tillman was murdered in Afghanistan on orders from the White House.

The theory behind the conspiracy? "It was well-known he (Tillman) was against the war in Iraq," explains the DailyKos diarist Dburn.

The blog references an appearance by General Wesley Clark on MSNBC's "Keith Olbermann's Countdown" discussing the latest developments in the story of the athlete killed in Afghanistan, presumably by friendly fire from within his Army Ranger unit.

"Wesley Clark was on and believes the orders came from the very top as Tillman was a political symbol," explains the blog. "No indication if orders were to murder him, but at least to cover it up. I'm not speculating at this point. But I saw in another diary where they claimed executive privilege in the Tillman case. It's starting to look beyond bad."

Al Qaeda + Al-CIA-Duh...

Mr. Rumsfeld gave me this cool coat just 10 minutes ago!
Analyst: Al-Qaeda Videotapes Digitally Doctored, "Green-Screened"
IntelCenter and As-Sahab logos added at same time, indicating Pentagon linked "middleman" is directly releasing Al-Qaeda videos.

An expert computer analyst has presented evidence that so-called "Al-Qaeda" tapes are routinely digitally doctored and has also unwittingly exposed an astounding detail that clearly indicates a Pentagon affiliated organization in the U.S. is directly responsible for releasing the videos.

(I'm so-o-o-o surprised! No seriously, though... I hope this evidence of skullduggery eats these Pentagon dirtbags alive and spits out the bones.)

"Neal Krawetz, a researcher and computer security consultant, gave an interesting presentation today at the BlackHat security conference in Las Vegas about analyzing digital photographs and video images for alterations and enhancements," reports Wired News.

"Using a program he wrote (and provided on the conference CD-ROM) Krawetz could print out the quantization tables in a JPEG file (that indicate how the image was compressed) and determine the last tool that created the image -- that is, the make and model of the camera if the image is original or the version of Photoshop that was used to alter and re-save the image. "

Krawetz's most telling discovery comes in the form of a detail contained in a 2006 Ayman al-Zawahiri tape. From his analysis he concludes that the As-Sahab logo (the alleged media arm of Al-Qaeda) and the IntelCenter logo (a U.S. based private intelligence organization that "monitors terrorist activity") were both added to the video at the same time.

This clearly indicates IntelCenter itself is directly creating or at least doctoring the Al-Qaeda tapes before their release. After all, why would Al-Qaeda terrorists be interested in branding their videos with the logo of a U.S. based organization that is run by individuals with close ties to the military-industrial complex?

In our previous groundbreaking investigation, we exposed IntelCenter, the middleman between "Al-Qaeda's media arm" and the press, and the organization that routinely obtains the tapes, as little more than a Pentagon front group staffed by individuals with close connections to Donald Rumsfeld and the U.S. war machine.

IntelCenter were also behind the release of the recent "new" Bin Laden tape, which in actual fact was old footage filmed in 2001 and had been released, including by IntelCenter itself, on no less than two previous occasions spanning back five years.

IntelCenter is run by Ben Venzke, former director of intelligence at a company called IDEFENSE, which is a Verisign company. IDEFENSE is a web security company that monitors intelligence from middle east conflicts and focuses on cyber threats among other things.

It is also heavily populated with long serving ex-military intelligence officials.

(I told you "Al Qaeda" was a U.S. Intelligence operation.)

The Director of Threat intelligence, Jim Melnick, served 16 years in the US army and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and worked in psychological operations. From the IDEFENSE website:

  • Prior to joining iDefense, Mr. Melnick served with distinction for more than 16 years in the U.S. Army and the Defense Intelligence Agency. During this period, Mr. Melnick served in a variety of roles, including psychological operations, international warning issues with emphasis on foreign affairs and information operations and Russian affairs. He also served in active political/military intelligence roles with an emphasis on foreign affairs. Mr. Melnick is currently a U.S. Army Reserve Colonel with Military Intelligence, assigned to the Office of the Secretary of Defense. Mr. Melnick has been published in numerous military and foreign affairs journals, and has received numerous military and DIA awards. Mr. Melnick has a Master of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies from the U.S. Naval War College, a Master of Arts in Russian studies from Harvard University, and a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Political Science from Westminster College.
So here we have a company that by its own admission has ties to a senior military psy-op intelligence officer who has worked directly for Donald Rumsfeld. As Intelcenter and Ben Venzke are directly connected to IDEFENSE, this puts Rumsfeld just three steps away from the Al Qaeda propaganda videos.
(Using dirty tricks to achieve economic and political ends is nothing new for Rumsfeld, whose first great success was getting the central nervous system toxin Aspartame approved by the FDA under newly-inaugurated President Reagan, thus saving J.D. Searle & Co. from bankruptcy, and facilitating the poisoning of millions of Americans. Searle handsomely rewarded Rumsfeld's treachery.)

Add to this the fact that IntelCenter are digitally doctoring the videos and then adding the logo of a purported terrorist group before their release and the ramifications become clear - elements within the U.S. are patently editing if not directly creating "Al-Qaeda" tapes for their own purposes.

Al-Qaeda, or more accurately IntelCenter, always seem to make a point of releasing the videos at the most politically expedient times for the benefit of the Bush administration. (That's what they're paid to do.)

$$$ Whether it's to justify a war, win an election or divert from a scandal, Bin Laden, Al-Zawahiri or their stooges can always be relied upon to come up with the goods and save Bush's bacon. $$$

As soon as the 6 month wait and see period for the "surge" was up and right when Bush's last remaining Republican cheerleaders deserted him on Iraq, Bin Laden popped up to remind us all of the necessity of "staying the course" and winning the war on terror by feeding more troops into the meat grinder.

Both Kerry and Bush attributed the President's 2004 re-election to Osama Bin Laden's appearance in a video tape just days before the vote. Veteran newsman Walter Cronkite mused that the whole farce was a Karl Rove orchestrated set-up.

On the eve of the Iraq war during Colin Powell's infamous presentation to the UN, an audio tape in which bin Laden claimed he was allied with Saddam Hussein surfaced, a gift-wrapped present for the Neo-Cons who had consistently been proven wrong in their assertion that there was a connection between Iraq and 9/11.

Ayman Al-Zawahiri appeared right on cue at the exact same time two years running, days before the State of the Union, to slam Bush as a "butcher" and a "failure." His timing is impeccable! Right when Bush needs to reinforce the fear of the shadowy enemy each January to mute his critics before the big speech, al-Zawahiri pops up with the goods.

Krawetz's analysis (view in PDF) further concludes that different objects and green screen backgrounds have been artificially added to certain videos, including that of probable Mossad double agent Adam Pearlman, in order to "lend authority and reverence to the video".

The smoking gun remains the fact that the two logos, the As-Sahab "terrorist" media arm and the IntelCenter organization, were added at exactly the same time, meaning either that IntelCenter, with its close ties to the U.S. government and psychological operation, has terrorists on the payroll or that IntelCenter itself is doctoring and directly releasing Al-Qaeda propaganda tapes.
Both conclusions are equally disturbing and demand an immediate FBI investigation of IntelCenter and its owners.

  1. Ayman al Zawahiri was allowed into America in 1999 and allowed to go on an Al Qaeda fundraising tour.He was then given 50 million dollars by Bill Clinton to fight a proxy war in the Balkans.He is no more than a CIA asset and has been for a long time.If you want to study one particular video there is none more blatant than the Fatty Bin Laden tape.Who is in that tape?yep you guessed it Ayman Al Zawahiri.Any tape of his is bogus.Read the books of Nafeez Ahmed for he uncovers the whole sorry deception.We are all being played for idiots but since finding out the story of Al Zawahiri i can now spot the propoganda straight away.The Al Qaeda legend we have drummed into us daily is no more than a CIA inspired myth.)
  2. Neal Krawetz should be analyzing all 24 hours of archived video from all major stations.

Please take the time to view the video above by clicking on the image and opening the video in a new window or a new tab. Then you can continue reading here while it loads. It's a 276 MB QuickTime H264 file, so it may take a while to load, depending on your connection speed. If you do watch it, you will understand what is happening. You can also download it in your choice of formats and resolutions from Prison Planet if you're a subscriber. This one is downsized to 320x240.

Al Qaeda means, literally, "the Base". It had its origins as a CIA program, and it continues to be a CIA program. If you watch the video, you'll see what I mean. This is not a theory. It is verifiable FACT. Many will choose to deny that fact, and continue to bury their heads in the proverbial sand. That being the case, America as we knew it will cease to exist. It already has.

In Arabic slang, Al Qaeda means "the toilet" or "the crapper". This is common knowledge all over the Arabic world. It defies credulity that a radical fundamentalist Islamic group would choose a name that means "the toilet". It didn't happen!!! The fact is that the CIA invented the term as a reference to its list or "database" (hence the term "the Base") of mercenaries under its control. Yet they remain confident that Americans are too stupid to figure out the truth. Whether their choice of a name was a bad inside joke, or born of ignorance of Arabic slang is a matter for conjecture. But there's no way that "Al Qaeda" chose the name for itself.
Of course bona fide terrorists do exist. But all of the really big ops were coordinated by American, British, and Israeli intelligence agencies, using their mercenary "Al Qaeda" assets.

The terrorists aren't coming here from "over there", they're here . . . in corporate offices of Fortune 500 companies, at Bohemian Grove, at Bilderberg meetings and in congressional offices in Washington and New York.

Forget that Osama and the bin Laden family are friends of the Bushes. The real names of the terrorists are George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and company, plus a complicit Congress that, thus far, refuses to use its constitutional powers to impeach and remove these criminals.

Yet, it's "al Qaeda," "al Qaeda," "al Qaeda," according to the corporate media parrots who spew it 24/7. "Al Qaeda" is responsible for every act of resistance to outright criminality in this world -- from fighting the US occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan to attempting to cause mayhem with vehicular Molotov cocktails in London and Glasgow (erroneously called "car bombs" by the corporate media).

To hear them tell it, "al Qaeda" is now a franchise operation and one will be opened near you tomorrow. Do you want fries with your bomb?

In Arabic "al Qaeda" means "the base." Scary, huh? But it has an exotic ring to the Western ear and is blamed for all manner of horrors perpetrated by the Bush administration, which scare the bejeezus out of people.

If you think 9/11, cooked up by the Bushies' friends at the Project for the New American Century, who said a "new Pearl Harbor" was needed, was bad enough, now you have Michael Dual Citizenship (US and Israeli) Chertoff saying he feels in his "gut" that another 9/11 is coming to the US this summer.

And the corporate media ate that one, too, along with the dessert served up by the latest National Intelligence Estimate that "the base" ("al Qaeda") is reconstituted and stronger than ever. Wow!

Meanwhile, the wannabe presidential candidates in both wings of the Corpocratic Party, with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel and Ron Paul (all written off by the corporate media as "can't win" third tier candidates), are flexing their jaw muscles about what they will do to those "al Qaeda terrorists" -- from bombing Iran to flattening what is left of Afghanistan -- if they become the next occupants of the White House. Also, bear in mind that, with the exception of the aforementioned three, all are salivating over the prospect of exercising the power Bush has granted to himself as the "unitary executive" and "the decider," which is why they aren't calling for Cheney and Bush's impeachment.

What is completely ignored by both the corporate media and the wannabe presidents is that if the Bushies pull off their next 9/11, George W. will have his "catastrophic emergency" in order to invoke his National Security and Homeland Security Directive, thereby making himself and Cheney dictators for life. In that event, will all those who stuffed the campaign coffers of the 2008 hopefuls want a refund?

One might have thought Bush and Cheney would wait until next summer or early next fall to play their trump card, but with the disastrous Bush/Cheney ship severely listing, the people's call for their impeachment growing louder and their desire to nuke Iran before they go down, they've had to move to Plan B by setting the stage for the next attack lest Congress finally listens to the people and begins impeachment proceedings -- first against Cheney, then Bush.

We have had six and a half years of madness and mayhem during which we have lost most of our freedoms, hundreds of thousands of innocent people have been killed, millions have been displaced and their countries destroyed. We can barely afford another day of this murderous regime, much less hope these terrorists will be gone in 18 months without causing more death and destruction. Unless Cheney and Bush are impeached, tried, convicted and removed from office, we will have nothing. And if they pull off Plan B, we will have less than nothing.

If you think we're alarmists, we're in good company. Last week's guests on Bill Moyers' Journal, Bruce Fein and John Nichols, also laid out the case for impeachment, as did Paul Craig Roberts.

This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or *promulgated* [emphasis mine], that threatened our very existence.

"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."

David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.

"The idea was that those who direct the overall conspiracy could use the differences in those two so-called ideologies [marxism/fascism/socialism v. democracy/capitalism] to enable them [the Illuminati] to divide larger and larger portions of the human race into opposing camps so that they could be armed and then brainwashed into fighting and destroying each other."

"An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers."

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the Field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something.

"For a long time I felt that FDR had developed many thoughts and ideas that were his own to benefit this country, the United States. But, he didn't. Most of his thoughts, his political ammunition, as it were, were carefully manufactured for him in advanced by the Council on Foreign Relations-One World Money group. Brilliantly, with great gusto, like a fine piece of artillery, he exploded that prepared "ammunition" in the middle of an unsuspecting target, the American people, and thus paid off and returned his internationalist political support.

"The case for government by elites is irrefutable"

"The Trilateral Commission is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateral Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. What the Trilateral Commission intends is to create a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of the nationstates involved. As managers and creators of the system ,they will rule the future."

U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater in his l964 book: With No Apologies.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups."

Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University, highly esteemed by his former student, William Jefferson Blythe Clinton.

"The Council on Foreign Relations is "the establishment." Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship."

"The New World Order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down...but in the end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault."

CFR member Richard Gardner, writing in the April l974 issue of the CFR's journal, Foreign Affairs.

"The planning of UN can be traced to the 'secret steering committee' established by Secretary [of State Cordell] Hull in January 1943. All of the members of this secret committee, with the exception of Hull, a Tennessee politician, were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. They saw Hull regularly to plan, select, and guide the labors of the [State] Department's Advisory Committee. It was, in effect, the coordinating agency for all the State Department's postwar planning."

Professors Laurence H. Shoup and William Minter, writing in their study of the CFR, "Imperial Brain Trust: The CFR and United States Foreign Policy." (Monthly Review Press, 1977).

"The most powerful clique in these (CFR) groups have one objective in common: they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty and the national independence of the U.S. They want to end national boundaries and racial and ethnic loyalties supposedly to increase business and ensure world peace. What they strive for would inevitably lead to dictatorship and loss of freedoms by the people. The CFR was founded for "the purpose of promoting disarmament and submergence of U.S. sovereignty and national independence into an all-powerful one-world government."

Harpers, July l958

"The old world order changed when this war-storm broke. The old international order passed away as suddenly, as unexpectedly, and as completely as if it had been wiped out by a gigantic flood, by a great tempest, or by a volcanic eruption. The old world order died with the setting of that day's sun and a new world order is being born while I speak, with birth-pangs so terrible that it seems almost incredible that life could come out of such fearful suffering and such overwhelming sorrow."

Nicholas Murray Butler, in an address delivered before the Union League of Philadelphia, Nov. 27, 1915

"The peace conference has assembled. It will make the most momentous decisions in history, and upon these decisions will rest the stability of the new world order and the future peace of the world."

M. C. Alexander, Executive Secretary of the American Association for International Conciliation, in a subscription letter for the periodical International Conciliation (1919)

"If there are those who think we are to jump immediately into a new world order, actuated by complete understanding and brotherly love, they are doomed to disappointment. If we are ever to approach that time, it will be after patient and persistent effort of long duration. The present international situation of mistrust and fear can only be corrected by a formula of equal status, continuously applied, to every phase of international contacts, until the cobwebs of the old order are brushed out of the minds of the people of all lands."

Dr. Augustus O. Thomas, president of the World Federation of Education Associations (August 1927), quoted in the book International Understanding: Agencies Educating for a New World (1931)

"... when the struggle seems to be drifting definitely towards a world social democracy, there may still be very great delays and disappointments before it becomes an efficient and beneficent world system. Countless people ... will hate the new world order ... and will die protesting against it. When we attempt to evaluate its promise, we have to bear in mind the distress of a generation or so of malcontents, many of them quite gallant and graceful-looking people."

H. G. Wells, in his book entitled The New World Order (1939)

"The term Internationalism has been popularized in recent years to cover an interlocking financial, political, and economic world force for the purpose of establishing a World Government. Today Internationalism is heralded from pulpit and platform as a 'League of Nations' or a 'Federated Union' to which the United States must surrender a definite part of its National Sovereignty. The World Government plan is being advocated under such alluring names as the 'New International Order,' 'The New World Order,' 'World Union Now,' 'World Commonwealth of Nations,' 'World Community,' etc. All the terms have the same objective; however, the line of approach may be religious or political according to the taste or training of the individual."

Excerpt from A Memorial to be Addressed to the House of Bishops and the House of Clerical and Lay Deputies of the Protestant Episcopal Church in General Convention (October 1940)

"In the first public declaration on the Jewish question since the outbreak of the war, Arthur Greenwood, member without portfolio in the British War Cabinet, assured the Jews of the United States that when victory was achieved an effort would be made to found a new world order based on the ideals of 'justice and peace.'"

Excerpt from article entitled "New World Order Pledged to Jews," in The New York Times (October 1940)

"If totalitarianism wins this conflict, the world will be ruled by tyrants, and individuals will be slaves. If democracy wins, the nations of the earth will be united in a commonwealth of free peoples, and individuals, wherever found, will be the sovereign units of the new world order."

The Declaration of the Federation of the World, produced by the Congress on World Federation, adopted by the Legislatures of North Carolina (1941), New Jersey (1942), Pennsylvania (1943), and possibly other states.

"He [John Foster Dulles] stated directly to me that he had every reason to believe that the Governor [Thomas E. Dewey of New York] accepts his point of view and that he is personally convinced that this is the policy that he would promote with great vigor if elected. So it is fair to say that on the first round the Sphinx of Albany has established himself as a prima facie champion of a strong and definite new world order."

Excerpt from article by Ralph W. Page in The Philadelphia Bulletin (May 1944)

"He [President Nixon] spoke of the talks as a beginning, saying nothing more about the prospects for future contacts and merely reiterating the belief he brought to China that both nations share an interest in peace and building 'a new world order.'"

Excerpt from an article in The New York Times (February 1972)

"If instant world government, Charter review, and a greatly strengthened International Court do not provide the answers, what hope for progress is there? The answer will not satisfy those who seek simple solutions to complex problems, but it comes down essentially to this: The hope for the foreseeable lies, not in building up a few ambitious central institutions of universal membership and general jurisdiction as was envisaged at the end of the last war, but rather in the much more decentralized, disorderly and pragmatic process of inventing or adapting institutions of limited jurisdiction and selected membership to deal with specific problems on a case-by-case basis ... In short, the 'house of world order' will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great 'booming, buzzing confusion,' to use William James' famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault."

Richard N. Gardner, in Foreign Affairs (April 1974)

"But it became clear as time went on that in Mr. Bush's mind the New World Order was founded on a convergence of goals and interests between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, so strong and permanent that they would work as a team through the U.N. Security Council."

Excerpt from A. M. Rosenthal, in The New York Times (January 1991)

"... it's Bush's baby, even if he shares its popularization with Gorbachev. Forget the Hitler 'new order' root; F.D.R. used the phrase earlier."

Santorum Suggests New Terror Attacks Will Change View Of War

'Officials worry of summer terror attack' reads an Associated Press headline today as Americans are served up their weekly dose of bellicose fearmongering.

But officials don't worry about another attack, they crave one - to save a doomed foreign policy and bolster approval ratings that have now slumped to an all time low.

This is not the conclusion of paranoid tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists, but a viewpoint held by major University foreign policy analysts like Lt.-Col. Doug Delaney, chair of the war studies program at the Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, who recently told the Toronto Star that "The key to bolstering Western resolve is another terrorist attack like 9/11 or the London transit bombings of two years ago."
As Republican political strategists scramble to find a message – any message – that will ring true with voters, GOP leaders in Congress admit privately that control of their party by right-wing extremists makes their recovery all but impossible.

Americans watch and wonder. George W. Bush speech writers, Neoconservatives and the odd state-worshiping evangelical – or do I repeat myself – nod encouragingly in our direction, in Paris Hilton-style and say, "Do you love it?"

Well, do ya, punk?

'A dead Iraqi is just another dead Iraqi... You know, so what?'

Those are the words of a soldier, but they could also be the words of the average brain-dead, self-deluded state-worshiping evangelical so self-absorbed in self-righteous faux patriotism that he can't see the absurdity of his remonstrance to the "faithful" : "Fear God, honor the King" while jealously guarding his 501(c)3 status and basking in oblivious comfort born of ignorance of the founding principles of our great nation. We the People did not bequeath our sovereignty to any earthly king or government. We the People are sovereign. We serve no king but Jesus. That clown in the White House who fancies himself "emperor" is our servant, not our "king". A "christian" who defends the greed and murderous treachery of the Neocons dishonors his Lord. There, I said it. I'm sick to death of hearing about how Islam is a violent religion, as if that fact is all the justification needed for killing bajillions of Muslims in the name of "G.O.D." (greed, oil & drugs). Sorry, buster... wrong God. It is not possible to morally justify the war in Iraq. Terrorism is the product of American "Intelligence" Operations and American foreign policy. Hussein was what we made him, and the "WMD's" he possessed were acquired primarily from us. Al Qaeda survives with the aid of covert intelligence ops and funding. The "War on Terror" is as much a fraud as the "War on Drugs" and the "War on Poverty". Those who think we're doing the "right thing" in Iraq are fools. Those who are profiting from this war are the very people who arranged for it to happen. As Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC (Retired) said, "War is a racket".

A number of the troops have returned home bearing mental and physical scars from fighting a war in an environment in which the insurgents are supported by the population. Many of those interviewed have come to oppose the US military presence in Iraq, joining the groundswell of public opinion across the US that views the war as futile. Read the entire article by clicking this link.
Al Qaeda is what Bush craves.

"Al Qaeda" has worked so long and so well for the Neocons and their agenda for global hegemony. And not surprisingly, for they wrote the script and they created the "monster" for their own purposes. Don't believe it? If not, you haven't been paying attention. History is replete with evidence for anyone with the courage to look. (Remember Operation Northwoods?)

Scripts help us understand complexities in human arrangements. A good story, on paper or on screen, takes what we know and grasp, and helps us see the next level, imagine new connections, imbue with grand meaning the previously mundane.

Our primary American script, for good or for evil, was that City on the Hill of our Puritan ancestors. But the script for the latter days of the Bush Administration is looking more and more like Mike Judge’s Idiocracy.

Al Qaeda – not complicated civil wars or the reality of human suffering and rage, not human longing for autonomy and liberty and love and community – Al Qaeda is what Bush craves. Al Qaeda is what the U.S. government, taxpayer dependent industry and mainstream media need.

Thus, we are fed Al Qaeda, morning, noon and night. We consume it, over and over again, repeating the mantra.

To treat the sickness of Dubya and Dick, stop drinking the Kool-aid. Trust me, it’s easy. Ignore those media outlets that transmit his message – and that’s pretty easy too. Media is business (even when corrupted by government linkages), and it will give us what we want to hear.

Stop buying the recycled BS and terror-filled Washington talking points, and they’ll stop selling. Conservative TV and talk radio are already feeling the pain of a nation that disapproves of war and global intervention, wasted treasure and blood.

On Iraq and Afghanistan, try walking away. Quickly, like a puddle of water evaporating in the Mesopotamian sun. Don’t worry that a well-dressed, finely fed and perfectly coiffed neocon in Washington will call you gutless.

If the global policing, base-building, corporate capitalists cry that if we leave now, even more innocent people will die, just remember that "more" is an awful big number. Americans have already killed a million Iraqis and Afghanis, and displaced nearly three million. And this doesn’t count the 500,000 dead Iraqi children our government justified as "worth" a decade of economic sanctions.

Don’t worry that a soldier will ask the impossible question of "If we leave now, why was I maimed, lied to, wasted, and made a murderer?" He’ll ask anyway, and there is only one answer, an old and oft repeated answer, and it hurts. You chose to serve the state, and it sacrificed you for nothing.

The government war on terror, everywhere and all the time – captioned and captive by "Al Qaeda" – is what Bush craves. Like some futuristic Brawndo, it’s killing our country, destroying our economy, and creating morally decrepit automatons where millions of free Americans might stand.

Over 70% of Americans oppose Bush, and his bloody cravings. Just in case we really are approaching idiocracy, that’s plus or minus 200 million. 200 million people who do not support the policy of a dwindling few in Washington, in a republic, ought to mean something. Shouldn’t it?

The truth that the Party Bigwigs will not face is that Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who has a message that resonates with the voters. They're pulling out all the stops to try to get rid of him. Why? Because of G.O.D.: Greed, Oil, and Drugs, the ambrosial virgin-blood elixir of the Neocons who have hijacked our government.

The fix is in, friends. The Republicans have a winning strategy for "victory" (unless, of course, a REAL Republican like Ron Paul wins the nomination, in which case Plan B will be to kill him, then revert to Plan A). Last month, the new chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party Dennis Milligan said that there needed to be more attacks on American soil for President Bush to regain popular approval.

With all those billions to be made, you can bet that he'll get it.

  • "At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001]," Milligan told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, "And the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country," he concluded.

Yearning for new mass casualty terror attacks for political gain is a GOP strategy - Milligan is merely parroting what was written in a leaked confidential memo that was circulated among senior Republican leaders in late 2005.

"A confidential memo circulating among senior Republican leaders suggests that a new attack by terrorists on U.S. soil could reverse the sagging fortunes of President George W. Bush as well as the GOP and "restore his image as a leader of the American people," reported Capitol Hill Blue on November 12, 2005.

"The closely-guarded memo lays out a list of scenarios to bring the Republican party back from the political brink, including a devastating attack by terrorists that could “validate” the President’s war on terror and allow Bush to “unite the country” in a “time of national shock and sorrow."

As is now well-known, shortly before 9/11 the Project For A New American Century, a Neo-Con lobby group which counts Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney in its ranks, lamented that its rapacious military agenda would not be realized "absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."

Early details about the alleged plan confirm that the case mirrors every other major terror sting in the west since 9/11 - where the near-retarded members of the group are entrapped and led by a paid for government provocateur and the scope and feasibility of the plot is vastly overhyped by officials and the media.

Here’s how it works. The disinformation is circulated to the news media and then the intelligence community creates its own terror warnings concerning the very organizations and plots it has created. In some cases, the disinformation appears in advance, in order to pave the way for an up and coming act of “terror” that roots in a desired political outcome. This problem/solution equation always appears when the war effort is waning and serves to give a face to terror via an expensive advertising campaign. A good example of this is the case of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.

Like some kind of mythical god or deity, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the supposed former leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, was apparently killed no less than five times by coalition forces.

He was first killed in the Sulaimaniyah mountains of northern Iraq, then he was killed in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, followed by a death during Operation Matador near the town of Qaim on the Syrian border, then he was killed, along with his mentor, Osama bin Laden, in the besieged city of Fallujah, and finally met his fifth demise in a U.S. air raid north of Baghdad in the town of Hibhib near Baquba.

Before al-Zarqawi met his final demise it also seemed as if he had magical powers that enabled him to escape multiple captures.

Inquisitive questions into just how al-Zarqawi had managed such feats were answered last year when it was revealed via leaked internal military documents that al-Zarqawi was a neocon pet propaganda program. His role and actions had been consistently artificially magnified according to officers involved in the program.

When some senior intelligence officers went public with fears that Zarqawi's role might have been overemphasized by the propaganda campaign, the Pentagon conveniently released a video showing al-Zarqawi wearing tennis shoes and fumbling with a U.S. M-249 squad automatic weapon, unable to operate the gun and appearing to be a total buffoon.

Just months after that pictures of Zarqawi's dead body were widely broadcast and the operation was retired.

In a previous propaganda ploy by the U.S. military command in Baghdad, it was revealed that Iraqi newspapers were paid to carry positive news about U.S. efforts in Iraq.

The latest example of Al Qaeda in Iraq propaganda shows that the military is still desperately trying to placate a media and a population that is sick and tired of funding the globalist empirical operation in the middle east.

Rudy Giuliani wasted no time in exploiting the news for political propaganda - citing it as a reason that he should be elected as president.

Seriously: why push for an early withdrawal, when the Iraq cash-cow is still gushing Congressional money-shots like black rain over Texas? ( Or for that matter, black men over Paris?)

  • Cheney’s private army is the new Praetorian Guard!

“The privatization of war hands an incentive to American corporations, many with tremendous political clout, to keep us mired down in Iraq,” said Chris Hedges of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Despotic movements need paramilitary forces that operate outside the law, forces that sow fear among potential opponents, and are capable of physically silencing those branded by their leaders as traitors. And in the wrong hands, a Blackwater could well become that force.”

(Italics mine. ‘Times New Roman’ italics, no less: coincidence?)

Erik Prince, the ex-Navy SEAL officer and war-profiteer who founded and runs Blackwater USA (“The most comprehensive professional military, law enforcement, security, peacekeeping, and stability operations company in the world", to hear them tell it) is a full-on, card-carrying, undead, brain-eating Cheney-ite, with ties thisclose to the "Christian Right": His father helped start Family Research Council, the fundamentalist Christian think-tank. Erik serves on the board of Christian Freedom International, a nonprofit group aiding "Christians… persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ". (In case you hadn't figured it out yet, folks, Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson are NOT Christians, but wolves in sheep's clothing. Santorum is another wolf and professional fakir looking to fatten his belly and his purse at the Neocon corporate welfare hog trough.)

Prince’s family have stuck millions into the deepest and most notoriously corrupt NeoCon glory-holes (namely Tom DeLay and Rick Santorum) and – surprise! -- Blackwater got precious little pesky Congressional scrutiny. This might have created speed bumps around Blackwater’s getting subcontracted, via the Pentagon, to do KBR security gigs in Iraq (KBR being the heat-packing division of Halliburton). A little bit conflict-of-interest-y, since the whole elite, ├╝ber-kleptocracy are all making out together in one big, spinning, Dubai Hilton mega-bed, drinking goblets of ambrosial virgin-blood, snorting emeralds and playing Gideon Bible II: Vice City.

The example our leaders are setting? Have a death-orgy unto Armageddon, kids. Moral competence is something that only Jesus has – therefore, you shouldn’t even try. Buy helicopter gunships and thrill-kill for the A-list, with the kind of impunity that only the upper .oooo4% can buy.

It’s a good thing that FOX won that last “indecency” battle with the FCC. I predict a whole lot of F-bombs dropping, these next two years. If real bombs were considered sexually suggestive, as opposed to merely murderous – we might finally get some Christians behind outlawing them.

That’s the Trash, mein kampers. Oy!

Wal-Mart Gets Stronger While America Gets Weaker

Wal-Mart is the number one importer of Chinese goods, and drives American companies to shut down plants and move manufacturing to China.

Meanwhile, they're on their way to becoming the largest seller of organic goods, many of which are produced in countries such as China, where the standards for organic farming are, at the very best, dubious.

Wal-Mart has been bombarded with accusations of selling substandard organic food, produced at factory farms. The accusations are well-founded, and the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) has called on consumers to boycott Wal-Mart for degrading the organic standards. According to OCA, despite their requests to Wal-Mart to stop, the mega-store chain is:

Selling Horizon and Aurora Organic milk that comes from intensive confinement factory farm dairies
Importing cheap organic foods and ingredients from China and Brazil
Posting signs in its stores that mislead consumers into believing that non-organic items are actually organic

Dr. Mercola's Comment:

After watching the important video above, I encourage you to find out more about Wal-Mart's predatory business practices in Robert Greenwald's excellent documentary, Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices. The film exposes the many social and financial problems created every time a Wal-Mart store opens in your area.

While many consider Wal-Mart a bargain, Penn State University researchers estimate some 20,000 American families have dropped below the poverty level due to the astounding growth of Wal-Mart in the 1990's. What's more, in counties where Wal-Mart stores are located, more than 15 percent of families depend on food stamps, compared to the national norm of 8 percent.

Wal-Mart also promotes a substandard and distorted image of organic foods. Since many of their supposedly organic food products are imported from China to make them cheaper, the standards under which they are being grown are dubious at best and non-existent at worst. Wal-Mart also has a history of deceptively labeling conventionally produced products as organic.

Sometimes they obey the letter but not the spirit of the law, as in the case of selling milk produced by factory-farmed herds that are technically "organic" because the cows are occasionally fed grass.

But sometimes Wal-Mart simply outright violates the law.

Consumer fraud investigators in Wisconsin found, after a three-month investigation into Wal-Mart's practices, that they had labeled many conventional food products as organic. The USDA has also identified similar incidents of fraudulent labeling in five states, including Minnesota and Texas.

The true costs of Wal-Mart simply aren't worth the apparent savings.

A Match Made in Hell: MI5 and the IRA

British MI5 Had Hand In Previous Car Bombings
Security services played role in similar previous attacks, massive car bomb discovered in London

This stuff happens because it serves the agenda of the NWO "Securocrats".

The blood of the innocents is on their hands.
British MI5 Had Hand In Previous Car Bombings

Security services played role in similar previous attacks, massive car bomb discovered in London

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
Friday, June 29, 2007

Intelligence sources are refusing to rule out an Irish connection to a massive car bomb that was discovered in the heart of London this morning. Though at this early stage the facts are sketchy, any link to the IRA or its offshoots would re-open a can of worms concerning the MI5's role in past terror attacks, and specifically car bombings, over the last few decades in Britain and Northern Ireland.

The timing of the attempted attack coincides with new Prime Minister Gordon Brown taking over from Tony Blair just yesterday.

  • "The threat of terror returned to London today after a large car bomb was found in the heart of the capital," reports the Daily Mail.
  • "Bomb squad officers defused the 'massive' device after police investigated reports of a suspicious vehicle in the early hours."

  • "According to an eyewitness the door staff at the nightclub Tiger, Tiger alerted police after the car, believed to be a silver Mercedes, was driven into bins last night and the driver ran off."
  • "The witness said the car was being driven 'erratically' before the minor crash. The driver was not stopped."
In any criminal investigation and in particular terrorism inquiry, it is paramount to look at who has the motive and history to carry out such an attack.

It is important to stress that not every terror attack is necessarily part of some elaborate scheme or conspiracy - indeed it is usually small scale incidents such as this that are the work of lone extremists or Islamic fundamentalists who hate the west, of which Britain is inundated with.

But as the facts emerge we would be foolish to overlook the fact that the British security services were intimately involved in numerous terror attacks in Britain over the past few decades, namely car bombings, that were blamed on the IRA or its offshoots. This is particularly relevant considering that officials have refused to rule out an Irish connection in this case.

The silver car was left outside the Tiger Tiger nightclub on Haymarket. A gas canister can be seen in the bottom left-hand corner of this picture.

Every major IRA bombing in England and Northern Ireland has had the fingerprints of the British government and the FRU all over it.

Starting from at least the 1980's, SAS and British military intelligence agents were routinely ordered to embed themselves within violent branches of the IRA and aid terrorists in carrying out attacks. How do we know this happened? Because one of the individuals who was ordered to do so, Kevin Fulton, blew the whistle on the fact that he was told he had the Prime Minister's blessing to aid terrorists in bomb making and political assassinations.

In addition, mirroring the backdrop of the infiltration of the alleged liquid bomb plot, the August 15th 1998 Omagh bombing was allowed to proceed despite the fact that MI5 had fully infiltrated the Real IRA terror cell, knew the date of the bombing, and had tracked the terrorists' vehicle as it was driven to the bomb site. Again, in this case MI5 had one of their own agents within the bomb squad itself. In this instance, the car bombing went forward and 29 people, including two babies and nine children, were ripped apart as they shopped in a quiet market street.

Documents, lodged as part of a court action being taken against the British government by a disgruntled military intelligence agent, also revealed that an FRU (Force Research Unit) major was the officer who was the handler of the British army's most infamous agent inside the IRA -- a man code named Stakeknife.

Stakeknife is one of Belfast's leading Provisionals. His military handlers allowed him to carry out large numbers of terrorist murders in order to protect his cover within the IRA.

The London Observer further revealed some of the methods employed by the FRU in Northern Ireland, including the “human bomb” technique, which involved “forcing civilians to drive vehicles laden with explosives into army checkpoints”.

Former MI5 counter-terrorism officer David Shayler also saw documents indicating that the Israeli's bombed their own embassy in London in 1994 after a car bomb exploded outside the building in Kensington.

He also presented evidence that MI5 had foreknowledge of the 1993 Bishopsgate car bombing that was blamed on the IRA, and could have apprehended the bomb squad but let the attack go ahead.

To forget the proven history of the security service's involvement in car bombings and other terror attacks in Britain and Northern Ireland in light of this latest incident would be very naive, and as more information about the culprits behind this morning's attempted attack is released, that history is likely to become more prescient.
