Something is wrong at Veterans Today. A former Marine, who has published many articles here, was slammed by Gordon Duff and by Jim Dean for perpetrating “a hoax” by raising concerns about this mysterious “training op” called JADE HELM. I admire VT and like Gordon personally, although from time to time we have a divergence in our point of view. I have never felt as positive about Jim Dean because, as an old-time reporter and editor, he has come across to me as having an anti-academic prejudice, which I as a former professor have sensed from our initial encounters. But that doesn’t mean he’s wrong. But let’s consider the case of this article and its author, Robert O’Dowd. Although I had not read any of his work at VT before, I thought it was raising a perfectly appropriate issue as to whether or not JADE HELM, which is an operation that covers at least seven states (and now seems to have expanded to five or six more) could possibly be the cover for imposing martial law under the pretext of conducting operations in urban settings, which are meant to train personnel “for foreign operations”, where nothing about this has struck me as right from the beginning. As a consequence, I was glad to see he had published about it: But I could hardly believe the response from Gordon and Jim. Not only did they “tag team” Robert and imply that he had been played for a sap but asserted that, “We have checked our sources who would be in a position to know if something like this were going on, and it categorically is not.” The problem with this approach is that we ordinary readers are not in the position to verify “their sources”. This is a classic appeal to authority, where we are supposed to take their word for it. And while I might be disposed to accept those assurances on routine matters, in this instance, the case of JADE HELM is anything but “routine”.
Jim Dean piles on
It further astonished me that Jim Dean would reiterate his and Gordon’s position in both the facebook and ordinary comments sections on O’Dowd’s article, which you can easily confirm for yourself. This left some readers, such as Bonny Amey, at a loss as to exactly what was going on. And, indeed, others expressed concern, even in the ordinary comments section, where O’Dowd (in my view, with complete justification) submitted his resignation as a journalist for VT on facebook, explaining that he did not appreciate being used as a whipping boy for having published “a bogus story”, especially when the facts are still in doubt:
So is this “a bogus story”?
The fellow who seems to be arranging this op and speaking about it in public is one Tony Mead, where his characterization of “JADE HELM” is reasonably elaborate, involving the use of Army Green Berets, Navy SEALS and representatives of the other branches of the US military, which suggests that those who have asserted that this only involves “the national guard” appear to be wrong. Indeed, if what he is telling us in this video presentation is correct, then the appeal to “the national guard” is a bogus story, which troubles me because I heard it from Gordon Duff. But perhaps he had not looked into the situation deeply enough.
If Gordon had not looked into the situation “deeply enough”, however, then it makes no sense for him to have attacked Robert’s article and assailed him as a dupe who was pushing “a bogus story”. I was troubled enough by all of this that I brought together a group of four guests, including Terri from Nebraska (who had sent me many links), Robert O’Dowd himself (as the one who had raised this issue on VT), Preston James (whom I regard as one of the most astute intellects I have ever known), and last but not least (as a late arrival), Dennis Cimino (with whom I have co-authored multiple articles here) to try to sort all this out:
While I think we made progress in sorting this out, none of our considerations supported the idea that this was “a bogus story” and that no one should be concerned. It came as news to me when my producer, Chance, observed that a parallel operation is taking place in Canada under the name of “Maple Resolve”, which includes closing some 133 Target Stores, not merely for the two months the operation is officially supposed to run but for nine months at the cost of some 17,000 jobs, where their former employees are even being encouraged to find other lines of work. In my opinion, this alters the equation and leaves no doubt:
What conclusion should we draw?
Several features of “the big picture” strike me as enormously important. Walmart and Target are stores with mass appeal for the middle and lower class of both Canadian and American society. That some 15 Walmarts should be taken over in the United States alone and now another 133 Targets in Canada is alarming! There is nothing “bogus” about this story. And other sources, such as David Hodges’ “Common Sense Show” have made equally telling observations about the redistribution of resources for a purported “training op” when it entails the dismissal of 17,000 employees, who no doubt are being left in desperate straits:
So what conclusions do I draw from my investigations to this date? Gordon Duff and Jim Dean were wrong to censor Robert O’Dowd, whose article was entirely appropriate for a journal devoted to “clandestine activities”. JADE HELM is not a “training op” but something far more serious. When you calculate the profits per store to Walmart and to Target, they are taking an enormous hit, which can only be for some transcendent purpose that override “the conduct of business as usual”. (We are talking about billions of dollars in lost profits, not to mention the loss of highly qualified, experienced personnel to stock products, to resupply those facilities and to process check outs and deliveries.) As an investigative journalist for Veterans Today, I am committed to doing my best to expose the truth, even when it conflicts with the views of Gordon Duff and Jim Dean, who are at liberty to deal with me as severely as they dealt with Robert O’Dowd. I am committed to serve my nation and its best interests, which I do, come what may.

America’s War on Terror and the Urgency of World Peace: Its Ramification in the Philippines.
Social Sciences, University of the Philippines (UP-Cebu), March 2, 2015
March 2, 2015
The United States and its allies have launched a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity. U.S. and NATO forces are deployed in Eastern Europe including Ukraine. U.S. military intervention under a humanitarian mandate is proceeding in sub-Saharan Africa. The U.S. and its allies are threatening China under President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”.
America’s “war on terrorism” is a hegemonic project, under a fake counter-terrrorism agenda which consists in going after al Qaeda entities which “threaten Western civilization”.
Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Far East. The U.S. military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states.
Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (U.S.-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy.
We are not dealing with piecemeal military and intelligence operations. The July-August 2014 attack on Gaza by Israeli forces was undertaken in close consultation with the United States and NATO. The actions in Ukraine and their timing coincided with the onslaught of the attack on Gaza, Syria and Iraq.
In turn, military undertakings are closely coordinated with a process of economic warfare which consists not only in imposing sanctions on sovereign countries but also in deliberate acts of destabilization of financial and currencies markets, with a view to undermining the enemies’ national economies.
Our analysis in this article will largely be geared towards refuting the myth that the United States is waging “a Global War on Terrorism”. The evidence amply confirms that the the United States of America is a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” and that the campaign against the Islamic State is a smokescreen used by the US and its allies to justify in the eyes of public opinion its global war of conquest.
The Global War on Terrorism has become a consensus. It is part of war propaganda. It is also used by Western governments to justify and implement “anti-terrorist” legislation. It is the cornerstone of the West’s demonization campaign directed against Muslims.
It should also be understood that the “Global War on Terrorism” supports a process of “economic conquest”, whereby countries forego their sovereignty.
Their national economies are “taken over by foreign investors”.
Their assets are confiscated, austerity measures are imposed and a process of macro-economic restructuring under the helm of Wall Street and the Bretton Woods institutions are implemented.
US sponsored terrorism creates factional divisions within national societies.
Countries are impoverished and destabilized. National institutions are undermined as part of a US led war of conquest.
The evidence presented in this article, including the historical review, is intended to fully reveal the “Big Lie”.
Beyond doubt, the “Global War on Terrorism” is a fabrication. The United States of America is the “Number One” State Sponsor of Terrorism.
Michel Chossudovsky, University of the Philippines, UP-Cebu, March 1st 2015
The Global War on Terrorism: Obama’s Crusade against the Islamic State (ISIS)
The U.S. airstrikes initiated in September 2014 directed against Iraq and Syria under the pretext of going after the Islamic State are part of a scenario of military escalation extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to Central and South Asia.
Since August 2014, the US Air Force with the support of a coalition of more than twenty countries has relentlessly waged an intensified air campaign against Syria and Iraq allegedly targeting the Islamic State brigades.
According to Defense News, over 16,000 airstrikes were carried out from August 2014 to mid January 2015. Sixty percent of the air strikes were conducted by the US Air Force using advanced jet fighter and bombing capabilities (Aaron Mehta, “A-10 Performing 11 Percent of Anti-ISIS Sorties”. Defense News, January 19, 2015.)
The airstrikes have been casually described by the media as part of a “soft” counter-terrorism operation, rather than an act of all out war directed against Syria and Iraq.
This large scale air campaign which has resulted in countless civilian casualties has been routinely misreported by the mainstream media. According to Max Boot, senior fellow in national security at the Council on Foreign Relations. ”Obama’s strategy in Syria and Iraq is not working… [ because] the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIS has been remarkably restrained”. (Newsweek, February 17, 2015, emphasis added).
Americans are led to believe that the Islamic State constitutes a formidable force confronting the US military and threatening Western Civilization. The thrust of media reporting is that the US Air Force has failed and that “Obama should get his act together” in effectively confronting this ”Outside Enemy” of America.
According to CFR Max Boot, military escalation is the answer: what is required is for the president “to dispatch more aircraft, military advisers, and special operations forces, while loosening the restrictions under which they operate.” (Ibid)
What kind of aircraft are involved in the air campaign? The F-16 Fighting Falcon,(above right), The F-15E Strike Eagle (image below) , The A-10 Warthog, not to mention Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor stealth tactical fighter aircraft.
Why has the US Air Force not been able to wipe out the Islamic State which at the outset was largely equipped with conventional small arms not to mention state of the art Toyota pickup trucks?
From the very outset, this air campaign has NOT been directed against ISIS. The evidence confirms that the Islamic State is not the target. Quite the opposite.
The air raids are intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria.
The USAF-15E Strike Eagle
We call on our readers to carefully reflect on the following image, which describes the Islamic State convoy of pickup trucks entering Iraq and crossing a 200 km span of open desert which separates the two countries.
This convoy entered Iraq in June 2014.
What would have been required from a military standpoint to wipe out a ISIS convoy with no effective anti-aircraft capabilities?
Without an understanding of military issues, common sense prevails.
If they had wanted to eliminate the Islamic State brigades, they could have “carpet” bombed their convoys of Toyota pickup trucks when they crossed the desert from Syria into Iraq in June.
The answer is pretty obvious, yet not a single mainstream media has acknowledged it.
The Syro-Arabian Desert is open territory (see map right). With state of the art jet fighter aircraft (F15, F22 Raptor, F16) it would have been –from a military standpoint– ”a piece of cake”, a rapid and expedient surgical operation, which would have decimated the Islamic State convoys in a matter of hours.
Instead what we have witnessed is an ongoing drawn out six months of relentless air raids and bombings, and the terrorist enemy is apparently still intact.
(In comparison, the NATO bombing raids of Yugoslavia in 1999 lasted about three months (March 24-June 10, 1999).
And we are led to believe that the Islamic State cannot be defeated by a powerful US led military coalition of more than 20 countries.
The air campaign was not intended to decimate the Islamic State.
The counter-terrorism mandate is a fiction. America is the Number One “State Sponsor of Terrorism”.
The Islamic State is not only protected by the US and its allies, it is trained and financed by US-NATO, with the support of Israel and Washington’s Persian Gulf allies.
Al Qaeda Afiliated Entities are “Intelligence Assets. Instruments of US Intelligence
The Global War on Terrorism is a Fabrication used to justify a war of conquest. The Jihadist terrorists are “Made in America”. They are instruments of US intelligence, yet they are presented to public opinion as “enemies of America”.
The Islamic State (IS) militia, which is currently the alleged target of a US-NATO bombing campaign under a “counter-terrorism” mandate, continues to be supported covertly by the US. Washington and its allies continue to provide military aid to the Islamic State.
US and allied bombings are not targeting the ISIL, they are bombing the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria including factories and oil refineries.
The IS caliphate project is part of a longstanding US foreign policy agenda to carve up Iraq and Syria into separate territories: A Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic, a Republic of Kurdistan.
These various affiliated Al Qaeda entities in the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia are CIA sponsored “intelligence assets”. They are used by Washington to wreck havoc, create internal conflicts and destabilize sovereign countries.
Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al Shabab in Somalia, the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) (supported by NATO in 2011), Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Jemaah Islamiah (JI) in Indonesia, among other Al Qaeda affiliated groups are supported covertly by Western intelligence.
The US is also supporting Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations in the Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region of China. The underlying objective is to trigger political instability in Western China.
Chinese jihadists are reported to have received “terrorist training” from the Islamic State “in order to conduct attacks in China”. The declared objective of these Chinese-based jihadist entities (which serves the interests of the US) is to establish a Islamic caliphate extending into Western China. (Michel Chossudovsky, America’s War on Terrorism, Global Research, Montreal, 2005, Chapter 2).
Flashback to 1979: The History of Al Qaeda
The US has supported Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations for more than thirty years: since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war.
CIA training camps were set up in Pakistan, in liaison with Pakistan’s Inter-Services-Intelligence (ISI). In the ten year period from 1982 to 1992, some 35,000 jihadists from 43 Islamic countries were recruited by the CIA to fight in the Afghan jihad.
“Advertisements, paid for from CIA funds, were placed in newspapers and newsletters around the world offering inducements and motivations to join the Jihad.”
Lest we forget, Osama bin Laden, America’s bogyman and founder of Al Qaeda was recruited by the CIA in 1979 at the very outset of the US sponsored jihadist war against Afghanistan . He was 22 years old and was indoctrinated in a CIA sponsored guerilla training camp. Al Qaeda was a creation of US intelligence, which was put together with the support of Pakistani and Saudi intelligence:
“[I]t was the government of the United States which supported Pakistani dictator General Zia-ul Haq in creating thousands of religious schools from which the germs of Taliban emerged.” (Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), RAWA Statement on the Terrorist Attacks In the US, Centre for Research on Globalisation (CRG), http://globalresearch.ca/articles/RAW109A.html , 16 September 2001)
Since the Carter Administration, Washington has supported the Islamic terror network
Ronald Reagan called the terrorists “freedom fighters”. The US supplied weapons to the Islamic brigades. It was all for “a good cause”: fighting the Soviet Union and regime change, leading to the demise of a secular government in Afghanistan.

(source RAWA)
“We Created Al Qaeda to Fight the Soviets in Afghanistan”
In 1979, President Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski confirmed on CNN that the U.S. organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets:
“We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. – That land over-there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.”
“CIA director and Secretary of Defense Robert Gates confirmed in his memoir that the U.S. backed the Mujahideen in the 1970s.” (See Washington Blog, Sleeping With the Devil: How U.S. and Saudi Backing of Al Qaeda Led to 9/11, September 5, 2012).
Under Reagan’s NSDD 166, US assistance to the Islamic brigades channelled through Pakistan was not limited to bona fide military aid. Washington also contributed –through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)– to financing the process of religious indoctrination, largely to secure the demise of secular institutions. (Michel Chossudovsky, 9/11 ANALYSIS: From Ronald Reagan and the Soviet-Afghan War to George W Bush and September 11, 2001, Global Research, September 09, 2010)
Religious schools were generously funded by the US. Jihadist textbooks were published by the University of Nebraska. According to the The Washington Post (2002 reported):
… the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.
The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books…
The White House defends the religious content, saying that Islamic principles permeate Afghan culture and that the books “are fully in compliance with US law and policy.” Legal experts, however, question whether the books violate a constitutional ban on using tax dollars to promote religion.
… AID officials said in interviews that they left the Islamic materials intact because they feared Afghan educators would reject books lacking a strong dose of Muslim thought. The agency removed its logo and any mention of the U.S. government from the religious texts, AID spokeswoman Kathryn Stratos said.
“It’s not AID’s policy to support religious instruction,” Stratos said. “But we went ahead with this project because the primary purpose . . . is to educate children, which is predominantly a secular activity.”
… Published in the dominant Afghan languages of Dari and Pashtun, the textbooks were developed in the early 1980s under an AID grant to the University of Nebraska -Omaha and its Center for Afghanistan Studies. The agency spent $ 51 million on the university’s education programs in Afghanistan from 1984 to 1994.” (Washington Post, 23 March 2002)
Picture above is translated as follows: “Jihad – Often many different wars and conflicts arise among people, which cause material damages and loss of human life. If these wars and disputes occur among people for the sake of community, nation, territory, or even because of verbal differences, and for the sake of progress…”
This page is from a third-grade language arts textbook dating from the mujahidin period. A copy of the book was purchased new in Kabul in May 2000.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations in the wake of the US 2001 invasion,”New madrassas sprouted, funded and supported by Saudi Arabia and U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, where students were encouraged to join the Afghan resistance.
Washington’s Agenda: Destabilize Secular Institutions. Install an Islamic State in Afghanistan. The Role of the Wahhabi Missions
US military intervention in Afghanistan in the 1980s was supported by the Wahhabi missionaries out of Saudi Arabia, which trained the Taliban (‘graduates”) in the US sponsored madrassas in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Wahhabi doctrine would not have spread in the way it did without the support of US intelligence.
Saudi Arabia worked closely with Washington in recruiting the Mujahideen (holy warriors) to fight against the Soviet Union. The Saudi monarchy enlisted the support of the religious authorities. Fatwas were issued;
”urging Saudi and non-Saudi youths to go to Afghanistan and carry out jihad there. And it praised those who sacrificed their lives for the sake of Islamic nation’s causes.” (Al-Quds al-Arabi, op cit)
Confirmed by the Afghan Project (http://nsarchive.chadwyck.com/afintro.htm ), which has collected hundreds of CIA and State Department documents, cables and memoranda, the CIA developed from the late 1970s, ties with a number of Islamic organizations. The objective was to use “Islamic fundamentalist” doctrine to unseat the secular pro-Soviet People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) government as well as unleash a war with the Soviet Union. The same strategy of supporting Islamic political movements was used by Washington in the post-Cold War era in the Muslim republics of the former Soviet Union as well in Bosnia and Kosovo.
The CIA led war on Afghanistan largely contributed to destroying secular education. The number of CIA sponsored religious schools (madrassas) increased from 2,500 in 1980 to over 39,000 [in 2001]. (Michel Chossudovsky, 9/11 ANALYSIS: From Ronald Reagan and the Soviet-Afghan War to George W Bush and September 11, 2001, Global Research, September 09, 2010)
Women’s Rights in Afghanistan
The CIA-led war on Afghanistan was largely conducive to the derogation of Women’s Rights.
Before the Taliban came to power, Afghan women lived a life in many ways similar to that of Western women (see pictures below):
In the 1980s, Kabul was “a cosmopolitan city. Artists and hippies flocked to the capital. Women studied agriculture, engineering and business at the city’s university. Afghan women held government jobs.” There were female members of parliament, and women drove cars, and travelled and went on dates, without needing to ask a male guardian for permission. (Julie Levesque, Women Rights: From Afghanistan to Syria: Women’s Rights, War Propaganda and the CIA, Global Research, April 2014)

Al Qaeda and The Islamic State
“The Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT) is presented as a “Clash of Civilizations”, a war between competing values and religions, when in reality it is an outright war of conquest, guided by strategic and economic objectives.
U.S. sponsored Al Qaeda terror brigades (covertly supported by Western intelligence since the 1980s) have been deployed in Mali, Niger, Nigeria, the Central African Republic, Somalia and Yemen. Al Qaeda affiliated organizations have also been deployed in several Asian countries including China and Indonesia.
The Islamic State (ISIS) was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Presidency (GIP), Ri’āsat Al-Istikhbārāt Al-’Āmah ( رئاسة الاستخبارات العامة).
In relation to the Syrian insurgency, the Islamic State fighters together with the Al Qaeda affiliated jihadist forces of the Al Nusrah Front are the foot soldiers of the Western military alliance. They are covertly supported by US-NATO-Israel. Their mandate is to wage a terrorist insurgency against the government of Bashar al-Assad. The atrocities committed by Islamic State fighters in Iraq are similar to those committed in Syria. Their unspoken mandate is to wreck havoc and destruction in Syria and Iraq, acting on behalf of their US sponsors.
The ISIS brigades were involved in the US-NATO supported insurgency in Syria directed against the government of Bashar al Assad. NATO and the Turkish High Command were responsible for the recruitment of ISIL and Al Nusrah mercenaries from the outset of the Syrian insurgency in March 2011.
According to Israeli intelligence sources, this initiative consisted in:
“a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (DEBKAfile, NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011.)
There are Western Special Forces and Western intelligence operatives within the ranks of the ISIL. British Special Forces and MI6 have been involved in training jihadist rebels in Syria.
Western military specialists on contract to the Pentagon have trained the ISIS and Al Nusrah terrorists in the use of chemical weapons.
“The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN Sunday. ( CNN Report, December 9, 2012)
Recruited by America’s ally, a large number of ISIS mercenaries are convicted criminals released from Saudi prisons on condition they join the ISIL. Saudi death row inmates were recruited to join the terror brigades.
The Islamic State is routinely funded by the US, invariably through indirect sources. According to a recent (January 28, 2015) report by Pakistan’s Express Tribune (affiliated to the international Herald Tribune)
Yousaf al Salafi – allegedly the Pakistan commander of Islamic State (IS) or Daish – has confessed during investigations that he has been receiving funds through the United States.
Law enforcing agencies on January 22 claimed that they arrested al Salafi, along with his two companions, during a joint raid in Lahore. However, sources revealed that al Salafi was actually arrested sometimes in December last year and it was only disclosed on January 22.
“During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organisation in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source privy to the investigations revealed to Daily Express on the condition of anonymity.
…[F]rom 2007 where the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel openly conspired to stand up, fund, and arm a terrorist army to fight a proxy war against Syria and Iran, to 2015 where this army has finally manifested itself as the “Islamic State” complete with funding, arms, and fighters streaming in from NATO members, the source cited by the Tribune claiming that “the US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests,” and thus must now feign to be interested in stopping the organization in Syria, is the most compelling and logical explanation available.
The State Sponsors of Terrorism: Who’s Who
George W. Bush and the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia
The late Saudi King Abdullah was known to have supported and financed Al Qaeda in liaison with the Washington. Saudi intelligence played a key role in this regard.
The House of Saud provides financial aid to the terrorists. And so does the bin Laden family. According to The Washington based CATO Institute (November 2001) Saudi Arabia is a “prime sponsor of terrorism”
The U.S. government has warned that it will treat regimes that harbor or assist terrorist organizations the same way that it treats the organizations themselves. Yet if Washington is serious about that policy, it ought to regard Saudi Arabia as a State sponsor of international terrorism. Indeed, that country should have been included for years on the U.S. State Department’s annual list of governments guilty of sponsoring terrorism.
We recall that in the immediate wake of the 9/11 attacks, George W. Bush stated in no uncertain terms that “State sponsors of terrorism” would be considered as “terrorists”.
“We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them”.
But there is always an “Exception that the Proves the Rule” and that is George W. Bush himself.
When George W. Bush respectfully kisses King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, does this mean that Dubya could –by some stretch of the imagination– be considered a “suspected terrorist”, who should never have been elected president of the United States of America?
The answer is negative: Kissing “State sponsors of terrorism” on the mouth is not defined by the FBI as “suspicious behavior”.
The Insidious Relationship between the Bush and bin Laden Families
Now let us turn our attention to the relationship between the Bush and bin Laden families.
The Bushes and bin Ladens are long-time friends. This relationship goes back to George H. W. Bush, who served as head of the CIA in the Ford administration, before becoming Vice President under the Reagan administration and President of the United States (1989-1993).
George W. Bush Junior had business dealings in the oil industry dating back to the late 1970s, at the time when his father Bush Senior was head of the CIA:
The wider bin Laden clan [was] closely tied to the Saudi royal family. According to Seymour Hersh … it is far from clear that the royal family, … has forsaken Muslim extremists. Indeed, some members of the royal family itself are said to bankroll Osama bin Laden. … The Saudi monarchy, Hersh reports, has also quietly resisted U.S. efforts to conduct background checks of Saudi suspects in the wake of September 11. While much remains to be learned about these shadowy connections, it is clear that any investigation of the bin Laden’s family’s U.S. investments will lead to some well-placed Texans.
Like George W. Bush, the fortune of Osama bin Laden is rooted in oil and his family’s government connections. Before his death in a 1968 plane crash, Osama’s father, Mohammed bin Laden, made a fortune off construction contracts awarded by the Saudi royal family. The $5 billion per year construction conglomerate, known as the Binladin Group (the company uses another spelling of the name) remains closely tied to the Saudi royal family.
After the death of Mohammed bin Laden, control of the company passed to Salem bin Laden, Osama’s half brother. The roots of the first known Bush-bin Laden convergence date back to the mid-1970s, when the two clans were linked by a Houston businessman named James R. Bath. … By 1976, when Gerald Ford appointed the elder George Bush as CIA director, Bath was acting as a business agent for Salem bin Laden’s interests in Texas. …
After W. lost a bid for Congress, he decided to launch an oil company in Midland in 1979. For $50,000, Bath bought a 5 percent stake in W.’s Arbusto (Spanish for “Bush”) partnerships. At the time, Bath also served as business agent for several prominent Saudis, including Salem bin Laden. In exchange for a percentage of the deals, Bath made U.S. investments for these clients in his own name, according to Time. Although Bath has said that he invested his own money in Arbusto, not Saudi money, the fact that he was Salem’s agent at the time has fueled speculation that Osama bin Laden’s eldest brother was an early investor in W.’s first oil venture. It was around the time of this investment, incidentally, that Osama bin Laden made his first trip to the Khyber Pass, where he would soon join the Mujaheddin and the CIA in the holy war that expelled the Soviets from Afghanistan. (Salem, for his part, owned a house in Marble Falls, and died in a 1988 plane crash near San Antonio.) Andrew Wheat, The Bush-bin Laden Connection, Texas Observer, November 9, 2001)
The Bush-bin Laden Relationship: Flash Forward to September 10, 2001
Despite his family ties and links to the Royal Saudi household, Osama bin Laden was officially considered ”a disgrace” to members of the bin Laden family, who reluctantly provided him with “pocket money”, which was used to develop Al Qaeda (The Base). He was referred to as a “Black Sheep”.
Its all part of a “good guys project” of going after Osama, the “Black Sheep”, and waging the “Global War on Terrorism”.
There is nothing wrong, therefore, in socializing and doing business with family members of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, including the late Salem bin Laden and Shafiq bin Laden of the Carlyle Group.
Flash Forward to September 10, 2001. The Bush-bin Laden Relationship prevails. Confirmed by the Washington Post, “fellow investors” of the Carlyle Group Osama’s brother Shafiq bin Laden and former President H.G.W. Bush met at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on September 10, 2001, one day before 9/11, (see image below):
It didn’t help that as the World Trade Center burned on Sept. 11, 2001, the news interrupted a Carlyle business conference at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel here attended by a brother of Osama bin Laden [Shafiq bin Laden]. Former president Bush [senior, see image below], a fellow investor, had been with him at the conference the previous day. (Greg Schneider, Pairing the Powerful With the Rich, Washington Post, March 16, 2003)
Shafiq bin Laden, Osama’s brother and member of the Carlyle Group meets George H. W. Bush at Ritz Carlton on September 10, 2001 (Source: Michael Moore, Fahrenheit 911)
Lest we forget, Osama bin Laden was the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks, yet his brother Shafiq bin Laden was meeting up with the presidents’s dad, former president George H. W. Bush on September 10, 2001.
A day later, on the evening of September 11, 2001, president George W. Bush pronounced a historic speech in which he defined the relationship between “terrorists’ and “state sponsors of terrorism”:
The search is underway for those who are behind these evil acts. I’ve directed the full resources of our intelligence and law enforcement communities to find those responsible and to bring them to justice. We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them.
Needless to say Osama’s brother Shafiq and members of the bin Laden family were flown out of Washington in government planes in the immediate wake of 9/11.
Where was Osama bin Laden on September 10, 2001
Ironically, on September 10th while brother Shafiq bin Laden and George Bush Senior were meeting at the Ritz Carleton, the alleged 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden was undergoing treatment for his kidney condition at the Urology War of Pakistan’s military hospital in Rawalpindi. (according to Dan Rather, CBS News Report).
Everyone remembers what happened on September 11. Here`s the story of what may have happened the night before. It is a tale as twisted as the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
CBS News has been told that the night before the September 11 terrorist attack, Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan. He was getting medical treatment with the support of the very military that days later pledged its backing for the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan.
Pakistan intelligence sources tell CBS News that bin Laden was spirited into this military hospital in Rawalpindi for kidney dialysis treatment. On that night, says this medical worker who wanted her identity protected, they moved out all the regular staff in the urology department and sent in a secret team to replace them. She says it was treatment for a very special person. The special team was obviously up to no good.
“The military had him surrounded,” says this hospital employee who also wanted his identity masked, “and I saw the mysterious patient helped out of a car. Since that time,” he says, “I have seen many pictures of the man. He is the man we know as Osama bin Laden. I also heard two army officers talking to each other. They were saying that Osama bin Laden had to be watched carefully and looked after.” Those who know bin Laden say he suffers from numerous ailments, back and stomach problems. Ahmed Rashid, who has written extensively on the Taliban, says the military was often there to help before 9/11.
AHMED RASHID, TALIBAN EXPERT: There were reports that Pakistani intelligence had helped the Taliban buy dialysis machines. And the rumor was that these were wanted for Osama bin Laden.
PETERSEN (on camera): Doctors at the hospital told CBS News there was nothing special about that night, but they refused our request to see any records. Government officials tonight denied that bin Laden had any medical treatment on that night.
PETERSEN: The United States has no way of knowing who in Pakistan`s military or intelligence supported the Taliban or Osama bin Laden maybe up to the night before 9/11 by arranging dialysis to keep him alive. So the United States may not know if those same people might help him again perhaps to freedom.
Barry Petersen, CBS News, Islamabad. (CBS News quoted in Michel Chossudovsky, Where was bin Laden on 9/11, Global Research, November 16, 2003)
What this CBS report, which has largely been overlooked by analysts, suggests is that:
1) Pakistan’s Military Intelligence (ISI), which is in permanent liaison with the CIA, was complicit in protecting Osama bin Laden.
2) If the CBS report by Dan Rather is accurate and Osama had indeed been admitted to the Pakistani military hospital on September 10, 2001, courtesy of America’s ally, in all probability, his whereabouts were known to US officials.
3) The hospital was directly under the jurisdiction of the Pakistani Military, which has close links to the Pentagon. U.S. military advisers based in Rawalpindi. work closely with the Pakistani Armed Forces. Again, no attempt was made to arrest America’s best known fugitive, but then maybe bin Laden was serving another “better purpose”. Defense Secretary Rumsfeld claimed at the time that Osama’s whereabout were unknown: “Its like looking for a needle in a stack of hay”.
Needless to say, the CBS report was a crucial piece of information in the 9/11 jigsaw. It refuted the administration’s claim that the whereabouts of bin Laden were unknown. It pointed to a Pakistan connection, it also suggested a cover-up at the highest levels of the Bush administration.
Bush and the “State Sponsors of Terrorism”
Ironically, in a subsequent address to the joint session of the House of Representatives and the Senate on September 20, 2001, president George W. Bush stated unequivocally his administration’s intent to “pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism”, with no exceptions (e.g. Saudi Arabia and Pakistan)
Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make.
“We will starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest. And we will pursue nations that provide aid or safe haven to terrorism. Every nation, in every region, now has a decision to make.
Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists. (Applause.)
From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime [state sponsor of terrorism]. President George W. Bush, 20 September 2001 (emphasis added)
What both presidents Bush and Obama have failed to acknowledge is that America’s staunched ally Saudi Arabia, not to mention Turkey and Israel are financing and supporting the terrorists, in liaison with Washington.
Both Bush and Obama seem to be caught up in the contradictions of their own political rhetoric, the “either you are with us or you are with the terrorists” conundrum:
“I am with myself and I am also with the terrorists”
Flash Forward to March 2011: “New Normal” and the War on Syria: Supporting “Moderate Terrorists”
With the war on Syria (2011- ), establishing political ties with “State sponsors of terrorism” is considered to be part of a “New Normal”, a humanitarian endeavor intent upon unseating the secular government of Bashar al Assad and spreading American democracy throughout the Middle East.
John Kerry concurs: financial aid to Syria’s Al Nusrah, an affiliate of Al Qaeda is part of an R2P mandate.
There are now “‘good guy terrorists” and “bad guy terrorists”. Financial aid is channeled to Al Qaeda “good guy terrorists” to protect Syrians against the terrorists (New York Times, April 20, 2013)
Barack Obama, John Kerry, John McCain: Are They “Terror Suspects”?
Now let us examine in more detail the Al Nusrah Front, which constitutes the main rebel fighting force in Syria. Al Nusrah is affiliated to Al Qaeda. The leader of Al Nusrah, Abu Mohammad al-Golani, has pledged his allegiance to Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, who replaced Osama bin Laden after his death.
According to the State Department Bureau of Counter-terrorism, Jabhat al Nusrah, the main rebel force in Syria is a terrorist organization, an affiliate of Al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).
The State Department has issued a “prohibition against knowingly providing, or attempting or conspiring to provide, material support or resources to, or engaging in transactions with, al-Nusrah Front, and
the freezing of all property and interests in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States or the control of U.S. persons.” (emphasis added). It is understood that US State Department Counter-terrorism policy also applies to “state sponsors of terrorism”.
Al Nusrah is financed by Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Israel in close consultation with NATO and the Pentagon.
The Obama administration has openly confirmed its support for the Syrian rebels with most of this aid channeled to Al Nusrah.
US Senator John McCain is reported to have met up with jihadist terrorist leaders in Syria. (see picture right)
The Role of Israel: State Sponsor of Al Nusrah and the Islamic State (ISIS)
While theoretically committed to the US-led war on terrorism, the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu quite openly supports al Qaeda. The Al Nusrah and ISIS terror brigades operate out of the occupied Golan Heights.
Jihadist fighters have met Israeli IDF officers as well as Prime Minister Netanyahu. The IDF top brass acknowledges that “global jihad elements inside Syria” [ISIL and Al Nusrah] are supported by State of Israel. See image below:

military field hospital at the occupied Golan Heights’ border with Syria, 18 February 2014″.
Xenophobia: The Demonization of Muslims
The US president and his NATO allies, not to mention Bejamin Netanyahu, “R the Terrorists”, they are the “state sponsors of terrorism.”.
Obama’s “counter-terrorism” campaign against the Islamic State has contributed to the demonization of Muslims, who in the eyes of Western public opinion are increasingly associated with the jihadists.
Anybody who dares to question the validity of the “Global War on Terrorism” is branded a terrorist and subjected to the anti-terrorist laws.
The ultimate objective of the “Global War on Terrorism” is to subdue the citizens, totally depoliticize social life in America, prevent people from thinking and conceptualizing, from analyzing facts and challenging the legitimacy of the inquisitorial social order which rules America.
The Obama Administration has imposed a diabolical consensus with the support of its allies, not to mention the complicit role of the United Nations Security Council. The Western media has embraced the consensus; it has described the Islamic State as an independent entity, an outside enemy which threatens the Western World.
France has initiated a hate campaign against French Muslims, who represent approximately ten percent of France’s population.
While France mourns the victims of the Charlie Hebdo January 2015 attacks, the French government under the helm of president Francois Hollande is supporting as well as funding Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists in the Middle East and North Africa in liaison with the US, NATO and Israel:
France, as part of a NATO-led coalition, has been arming, funding, aiding, and otherwise perpetuating Al Qaeda terrorists for years, beginning, on record in Libya with the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and continuing until today with NATO’s arming, harboring, and backing of Al Qaeda terrorists including the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) within and along Syria’s borders.
With the recent attack in Paris likely the work of the very terrorists France has been arming and backing across North Africa and the Middle East, the French government itself stands responsible, guilty of the continued material support of a terrorist organization that has now killed French citizens, including two police officers, not only on French soil, but within the French capital itself. (Tony Cartalucci, Global Research, January 8, 2015)
Ironically, while the French media in chorus point to “Freedom of Expression” in journalism, not a single French media has had the courage of pointing to the issue of State sponsorship of terrorism by the French Republic.
The Urgency of World Peace
The antiwar movement in several Western countries is in crisis. Some of America’s wars are condemned outright, while others are heralded as “humanitarian interventions”. A significant segment of the US antiwar movement condemns the war but endorses the campaign against international terrorism, which constitutes the backbone of US military doctrine.
Historically, progressive social movements in Western countries (including the World Social Forum) have been infiltrated, their leaders co-opted and manipulated, through the corporate funding of non-governmental organizations, trade unions and political parties. The ultimate purpose of “funding dissent” is to prevent the protest movement from challenging the legitimacy of the capitalist elites.
The “Just War” theory (Jus Ad Bellum) has served to camouflage the nature of US foreign policy, while providing a human face to the invaders. The logic behind the “Global War on Terrorism” is that of a Just War. It is portrayed as a counter-terrorism initiative rather than outright military operation.
A large segment of “progressive” opinion in the US and Western Europe is supportive of NATO’s R2P “humanitarian” mandate (Responsibility to Protect) to the extent that these war plans are being carried out with the “rubber stamp” of civil society.
Prominent “progressive” authors as well independent media outlets have supported regime change and NATO sponsored humanitarian intervention in Libya. Similarly, many “progressive voices” rallied in support of the US-NATO sponsored opposition in Syria.
Let us be under no illusions: This pseudo-progressive discourse is an instrument of propaganda. Several prominent “left” intellectuals –who claim to be opposed to US imperialism– have supported the imposition of “no fly zones” and “humanitarian interventions” against sovereign countries.
“Progressives” are funded and co-opted by elite foundations including Ford, Rockefeller, et al. The corporate elites have sought to fragment the people’s movement into a vast “do it yourself” mosaic. War and globalization are no longer in the forefront of civil society activism. Activism tends to be piecemeal. There is no integrated anti-globalization anti-war movement. The economic crisis is not seen as having a relationship to the US led war.
Dissent has been compartmentalized. Separate “issue oriented” protest movements (e.g. environment, anti-globalization, peace, women’s rights, climate change) are encouraged and generously funded as opposed to a cohesive mass movement. This mosaic was already prevalent in the counter G7 summits and People’s Summits of the 1990s.
In numerous organizations including the trade union movement, the grassroots is betrayed by their leaders who are co-opted. The money trickles down from the corporate foundations, setting constraints on grassroots actions. Its called “manufacturing dissent”. Many of these NGO leaders are committed and well meaning individuals acting within a framework which sets the boundaries of dissent. The leaders of these movements are often co-opted, without even realizing that as a result of corporate funding their hands are tied.
In recent history, with the exception of Iraq, the so-called Western left namely “Progressives” have paid lip service to US-NATO military interventions in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Libya and Syria. “Progressives” also support the official 9/11 version of events. They deny 9/11 Truth.
“Progressives” acknowledge that the US was under attack on 9/11 and that the war on Afghanistan was a “Just War”. In the case of Afghanistan, the “self-defense” argument was accepted at face value as a legitimate response to the 9/11 attacks, without examining the fact that the US administration had not only supported the “Islamic terror network”, it was also instrumental in the installation of the Taliban government in 1995-96. It was tacitly implied that by supporting al Qaeda, Afghanistan had attacked America on September 11, 2001.
In 2001, when Afghanistan was bombed and later invaded, “progressive” organizations largely upheld the administration’s “just cause” military doctrine. In the wake of 9/11, the antiwar movement against the illegal invasion of Afghanistan was isolated. The trade unions and civil society organizations had swallowed the media lies and government propaganda. They had accepted a war of retribution against Al Qaeda and the Taliban.
Media disinformation prevailed. People were misled as to the nature and objectives underlying the invasion of Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden and the Taliban were identified as the prime suspects of the 9/11 attacks, without a shred of evidence and without addressing the historical relationship between Al Qaeda and the US intelligence apparatus (as outlined above). In this regard, understanding 9/11 is crucial in formulating a consistent antiwar position. 9/11 is the pillar of US war propaganda; it sustains the illusion of an outside enemy, it justifies pre-emptive military intervention, it is the cornerstone of xenophobia and the hate campaign directed against Muslims.
With regard to Syria, from the outset in 2011, “progressives” and mainstream “antiwar” organizations have supported so-called opposition forces without acknowledging that the mainstay of these forces is composed of Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists, recruited, trained and financed by US-NATO and their allies including Israel, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
These antiwar groups, which previously supported NATO intervention in Libya, blame the Syrian government for the atrocities committed by the US sponsored Al Qaeda rebels.
Rebuilding the Antiwar Movement
What is required is to rebuild a mass movement. And this cannot be undertaken by organizations which are supported of corporate foundations and charities.
The social base as well as the organizational structure of the antiwar movement must be transformed. America’s “Long War” is an imperialist project which sustains the financial structures and institutional foundations of the capitalist World Order. Behind this military agenda are powerful corporate interests including an extensive propaganda apparatus.
War and the Economic Crisis are intimately related. The Worldwide imposition of neoliberal macro-economic policy measures is part of the broader imperial agenda. And consequently, the broader movement against neoliberalism must be integrated into the anti-war movement.
Breaking the BIG LIE, which presents war as a humanitarian undertaking, means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force. This profit-driven military agenda destroys human values and transforms people into unconscious zombies.
The holding of mass demonstrations and antiwar protests is not enough. What is required is the development of a broad and well-organized grassroots antiwar network, across the land, nationally and internationally, which challenges the structures of power and authority as well as the nature of the capitalist World order. People must mobilize not only against the military agenda – the authority of the state and its officials must also be challenged.
A meaningful anti-war movement requires breaking the “war on terrorism” consensus and upholding 9/11 Truth. To reverse the tide of war and globalization requires a massive campaign of networking and outreach to inform people across the land, nationally and internationally, in neighborhoods, workplaces, parishes, schools, universities and municipalities, on the nature of the imperial project, its military and economic dimensions, not to mention the dangers of a US sponsored nuclear war. This movement must also occur within the Armed Forces (including NATO) with a view to challenging the legitimacy of the military agenda.
The message should be loud and clear:
The US and its allies are behind the Al Qaeda and Islamic State terrorists who have committed countless atrocities against civilians on the specific instructions of the Western military alliance,
China and Russia are not a threat to Global Security. Neither are Syria, Iran or North Korea a threat to World Peace. Quite the opposite. The threat to Global Security emanates from the Pentagon and the US State Department.
What has to be achieved:
Reveal the criminal nature of this military project. War is a criminal undertaking under Nuremberg. It is the ultimate “Crime against the Peace”.
Undermine war propaganda, reveal the media lies, reverse the tide of disinformation, wage a consistent campaign against the corporate media. Bear in mind war propaganda is also considered a criminal act under the Nuremberg protocol
Break the legitimacy of the warmongers in high office. Indict political leaders for war crimes.
Dismantle the multibillion dollar national intelligence apparatus.
Dismantle the US-sponsored military adventure and its corporate sponsors. Bring home the troops.
Repeal the illusion that the state is committed to protecting its citizens.
Uphold 9/11 Truth. Reveal the falsehoods behind 9/11 which are used to justify the Middle East/Central Asian war under the banner of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT).
Expose how a profit-driven war serves the vested interests of the banks, the defense contractors, the oil giants, the media giants and the biotech conglomerates.
Challenge the corporate media which deliberately obfuscates the causes and consequences of this war.
Reveal and take cognizance of the unspoken and tragic outcome of a war waged with nuclear weapons.
Call for the Dismantling of NATO.
Reorganize the system of international justice which protects the war criminals. Implement the prosecution of war criminals in high office.
Close down the weapons assembly plants and implement the foreclosure of major weapons producers.
Close down all US military bases in the US and around the world.
Develop an antiwar movement within the armed forces and establish bridges between the armed forces and the civilian antiwar movement.
Forcefully pressure governments of both NATO and non-NATO countries to withdraw from the US-led global military agenda.
Develop a consistent antiwar movement in Israel. Inform the citizens of Israel of the likely consequences of a US-NATO-Israeli attack on Iran.
Target the pro-war lobby groups including the pro-Israeli groups in the US.
Dismantle the homeland security state. Repeal the legitimacy of Obama’s extrajudicial assassinations. Repeal the drone wars directed against civilians.
Undermine the “militarization of law enforcement”.
Reverse the gamut of anti-terrorist legislation in Western countries which is intended to repeal fundamental civil rights.
These are no easy tasks. They require an understanding of the power structure, of hegemonic relations between the military, intelligence, the state structures and corporate powers which are promoting this destructive agenda.
Ultimately these power relations must be undermined with a view to changing the course of World history.
Without war propaganda and media disinformation, war criminals in high office do not have leg to stand on. Without the mainstream media’s lies and fabrications, the legitimacy of the “Global War on Terrorism” would collapse like a deck of cards.

March 2, 2015
PM Netanyahu’s UN Speech – The Pathology Of Evil By Gilad Atzmon 9-29-9 Israeli PM Netanyahu’s speech at the UN is a major insight into the Israeli’s mentality, psyche and logic. In his speech Netanyahu, a prolific and charismatic speaker, gives air to his genocidal inclinations, he brings to light the Israeli supremacy but he also allows us to detect some shaky and vulnerable spots at the heart of the Jewish national narrative. Reading Netanyahu’s speech makes it very clear that both the Zionist Shoa and the ‘promised land’ narratives are on the verge of collapse. It seems as if the ‘discredited’ Iranian president Ahmadinejad has managed to succeed after all. Don’t You Mess With Our Shoa Israelis love their Shoa, for the Shoa is no doubt their best selling Hasbara (propaganda) product. It somehow allows them to kill en masse and to do it indistinguishably while insisting that it is they who happen to be the victims. “I went to a villa in a suburb of Berlin called Wannsee.” Said Netanyahu. “There, on January 20,1942, after a hearty meal, senior Nazi officials met and decided how to exterminate the Jewish people.” PM Netanyahu, if you are genuinely interested in ‘extermination plans’ you do not have to travel to Wannsee, Berlin. All you have to do is visit your IDF’s headquarters in Tel Aviv. Your chief commanders will guide you through their IDF ‘solutions’ for the Palestinians. At the end of the day, it is your army that surrounds Palestinians with barbed-wire, it is you who keep civilian populations in a siege with inadequate food supplies and medicine. It is your army that poured WMD over the most densely populated neighbourhoods on this planet. While the real meaning of the ‘Nazi Final Solution’ (Die Endlösung) is still discussed by historians who fail to agree between themselves what it really meant, the true reality of the Israeli murderous solution has been seen by us all. However, it is almost amusing to see PM Netanyahu rushing to defend the Zionist holocaust narrative. Looking at Netanyahu presenting the protocol of the Wannsee conference to the UN assembly gives a clear impression that the Israeli PM believes that the Shoa needs an urgent pump of credibility. For the first time, the Shoa is on the defence. “Here is a copy of the plans for Auschwitz-Birkenau, where one million Jews were murdered. Is this too a lie?” asks the Israeli PM. PM Netanyahu, may I suggest to you that not a single humanist cares about the exact numbers: whether it was one or four millions Jews who died in Auschwitz, no one doubts that the camp was a horrible place. Yet, two questions must be answered once and for all: how is it that the Jews, who suffered so much during that war, managed to get themselves involved in a colossal racist crime against the Palestinians (1948 Nakba) just three years after the liberation of Auschwitz? How is it that the Israeli leadership, that happens to be so sensitive to Jewish suffering, manages to neglect the pain they inflict on millions of Palestinians? Supremacy and Beyond As a National movement, Zionism fails to respect other national and popular movements. Seemingly Netanyahu fails to respect the Iranian people and their regime. “Wherever they can, they impose a backward regimented society where women, minorities, gays or anyone not deemed to be a true believer is brutally subjugated.” Netanyahu, must know that the Judaic law is not very different from Islam on these matters. He must also remember that it is in his country that gays were murdered in the street just a month ago. It is almost amusing that Netanyahu chooses to equate Iran with Barbarism and the Middle Ages for its treatment of minorities. As far as minorities are concerned, the Jewish state is actually the darkest place on this planet. In Netanyahu’s promised land half of the population cannot participate in the democratic game just for failing to be Jewish. Israel according to Netanyahu is the embodiment of Western modernity. “We (the Westerners) will crack the genetic code. We will cure the incurable. We will lengthen our lives. We will find a cheap alternative to fossil fuels and clean up the planet. I am proud that my country Israel is at the forefront of these advances.” I must admit that I am not at all overwhelmed by Israeli scientific or technological achievements. Nor have I ever seen any evidence of Israeli attempts to save humanity or even the planet. In fact all I see is quite the opposite. However, if Netanyahu welcomes scientific progress, he should be the first to rally for the Iranian nuclear project. As we all know, this doesn’t seem to be the case. He, for some reason, thinks that, at least regionally, nuclear energy and weapons must remain Jew only property. Netanyahu argues that “if the most primitive fanaticism can acquire the most deadly weapons, the march of history could be reversed for a time.” Netanyahu may well be correct but one should point out to him that the above applies to Israel more than any other country, state or society. For the time being it is the Jewish State that has been caught pouring WMD on its imprisoned civilian population. It is the Jewish State that is dragging us all into an ‘eye for an eye’ primitive Biblical fanaticism. As if this is not enough, it is also America and Britain that launched illegal wars orchestrated by Zionist led Neocons and fundraisers. This war has cost more than one million lives so far. However, for once I agree with Netanyhau: “The greatest threat facing the world today”, he says, “is the marriage between religious fanaticism and the weapons of mass destruction.” In fact, no one could describe the danger posed by the Jewish state and Zionism any better. Israel is indeed a deadly marriage between Old Testament gross genocidal barbarism, Zionist fanaticism and a huge arsenal of WMD, chemical, biological and nuclear that has already been partially put into action. Sabbath Goyim Like other Zionist operations around the world, Netanyahu is convinced that the Goyim should fight the Jewish wars. “Above all, will the international community stop the terrorist regime of Iran from developing atomic weapons, thereby endangering the peace of the entire world?” I actually would like to stress that PM Netanyahu is all wrong here. If the United Nation is interested in bringing peace to this region and the world, it is of the essence to help Iran to develop its nuclear project and even its military nuclear capacity. This seems to be the only thing that may curb the English Speaking Empire’s lethal expansionist enthusiasm as performed recently in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan. It will surely stop the Zionists from celebrating their symptoms at the expense of their neighbours. Following the successful transformation of the American and British armies into an Israeli subservient mission force, Netanyahu seems to expect the UN to follow and to fulfil the very same role. “Hamas”, he says, “fired from Gaza thousands of missiles, mortars and rockets on nearby Israeli cities. Year after year, as these missiles were deliberately hurled at our civilians, not a single UN resolution was passed condemning those criminal attacks.” I guess that someone should remind the Israeli PM that the dispute between Hamas and Israel is not exactly an international quarrel, for Palestine is not a sovereign state and Gaza is nothing less than an Israeli-run concentration camp. In other words, the practicality of the matter is simple. The UN should only deal with war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Israel, its leadership and its army. It is not down to the UN to pass any kind of judgment on the oppressed. Mass Murder Fantasies It doesn’t take long before Netanyahu lists his ideological mentors and the core of his lethal inspiration “When the Nazis rocketed British cities during World War II” Actually the allies levelled German cities, causing hundreds of thousands of victims By these twisted standards, the UN Human Rights Council would have dragged Roosevelt and Churchill to the dock as war criminals. What a perversion of truth. What a perversion of justice. Delegates of the United Nations, will you accept this farce?” Netanyahu is almost correct. In his recounting of the 2nd WW he surely admits here that Israel follows Roosevelt’s and Churchill’s mass murder tactics. But he surely fails to realise that if it was indeed down to ethics and Justice (rather than the usual dirty politics) Roosevelt and Churchill would have been charged with war crimes on a most severe scale. Shockingly enough, Netanyahu falls into the most obvious legal trap equating Israeli activity with acts of carpet bombardment on a huge scale. For those who fail to see it all, this is a rapidly blinking red light hazard. In Netanyahu’s perception of reality nuking countries and flattening towns is a justifiable act. Roosevelt and Churchill seem to be his moral entitlement. In fact these statements are enough to make it clear to every reasonable human being that Israel is a genocidal entity that is capable of bringing our civilisation to a devastating end. This is a wake up call: it is not just the Palestinians or the Iranians. It is actually all of us. Bibi* the Peace Maker By now, the Israeli PM is ready to state his Judeo centric peace mantra. “Ladies and Gentlemen, all of Israel wants peace”. Yet as far as statistics are concerned, we have recently learned that 94% of the Israeli Jews also approved the carpet bombardment of their next door neighbours. It is impossible not to see a clear discrepancy between the ‘peace loving’ verbalism and the murderous reality. “We ask the Palestinians to finally do what they have refused to do for 62 years: Say yes to a Jewish state.” Once again, I happen to agree with PM Netanyahu. The Palestinian may as well say YES to a Jewish state, but not in Palestine or in the Middle East. If Obama, Brown, Merkel or any other deluded world leader who is still insisting to approve the validity or necessity of a racially orientated ‘Jewish national homeland’, he or she is more than welcome to allocate land to such a project within his or her own territory. Palestinians should say NO to a Jewish state in the Holy Land or in the region. Palestinians should never agree to the existence of a Jewish state on their land. In fact the UN must follow this line and do whatever it can to dismantle this evil apartheid regime. Khazarian United To a certain extent, Netanyahu’s UN speech expresses some deep concerns Jews tend to keep to themselves. At the end of the day, the Israelis and Ashkenazi Israelis in particular know pretty well that Palestine is not exactly the land of their ancestors. If the Israeli Ashkenazi Jews, including Netanyahu, do want to find their roots, Khazaria is the place to start. However, Netanyahu tries to defuse these historical facts. “The Jewish people are not foreign conquerors in the Land of Israel. This is the land of our forefathers We are not strangers to this land. It is our homeland” says Netanyahu with total conviction. PM Netanyahu, I will make it plain and clear. Not only are you foreign to the land, you are also foreign to almost every possible understanding of the notion of humanity. In fact, the Separation Wall that is going to be left after the inevitable disappearance of your ‘Jew only democracy’ will serve generations to come with an astonishing historical monument of Jewish national identity estranged from ethics, universalism and human brotherhood. The crime against humanity committed by the Jewish state in the name of the Jewish people is not something that will be wiped out from the history text books in a short time. Quite the opposite; it will stand as another mythological chapter in this never-ending saga of supremacist compulsive pathological self-loving. “We must have security” says Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu as he ends his speech. And I am here to disappoint him. Israel will never be secured. It was born in a sin, and its existence surpasses any notion of ethics or human existence. The Jewish state has passed the ‘no return zone’. It is doomed to vanish. We can only hope that once this happens the process of Jewish assimilation and integration into humanity will re-embark. At the end of the day Jewish Nationalism both left, right and centre was there to keep Jews apart. The history of the 20th century teaches us that this tendency to segregate oneself is bad for humanity and it is also devastating for the Jews. * Netanyahu’s nickname is Bibi MORE: Zionist Knesset member Shelly Yachimovich Slams Netanyahu’s Speech at UN Member of the Zionist Parliament (Knesset) and former opposition leader Shelly Yachimovich on Tuesday criticized the Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Monday speech at the U.N. General Assembly in New York, saying “it had disappointed the Israeli people.” “The speech did not deliver good news for Israelis, who are desperate for hope,” Yachimovich, a former leader of Zionist Labor party, was quoted as saying by The Jerusalem Post. “The prime minister should have delivered a new diplomatic horizon,” she said, “but he does not miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.” World Bulletin news website reported that Yachimovich also renewed calls for opening talks with Abbas, saying he represented the only viable Palestinian peace partner for the Zionist entity. “Reaching a peace agreement with the Palestinians is a clear Zionist-Israeli interest,” she argued. In his Monday speech at the U.N. General Assembly, Netanyahu slammed Abbas’ address, delivered earlier before the same assembly, in which the Palestinian leader accused Israel of committing “genocide” during its recent 51-day military onslaught on the Gaza Strip. During 51 days of fierce Zionist bombardment on the Strip, more than 2,150 Palestinians were killed and nearly 11,000 injured – mostly civilians – while thousands of homes were damaged or destroyed. The Zionist onslaught ended late last month with a cease-fire that was a strategic victory for the Palestinian resistance over the Zionist killing machine.
The Bush Dynasty of Death: Four Generations of Wall Street War-Making and War-Profiteering
There is no historic parallel that can be drawn, nothing compares with the accomplishments of the Bush family. No dictator or tyrant can equal the suffering and destruction they have wrought on humanity, as they are not mere tyrants themselves, but the makers and breakers of tyrants, the organizers and profiteers of war and death. They are not alone and solely responsible for creating the present-day military-industrial complex, however since 1915 the Bush family has been directly involved in World War One and Two, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, numerous CIA secret wars, the Gulf War, and now a “Never Ending War.” The past four generations of this one family have had a hand in promoting and profiting from most of the major wars that America has waged since the beginning of the industrial age.
The story of Prescott Bush and Brown Brothers, Harriman is an introduction to the real history of our country. It exposes the money-making motives behind our foreign policies, dating back a full century. The ability of Prescott Bush and the Harrimans to bury their checkered pasts also reveals a collusion between Wall Street and media that exists today.
Historian Edward Boswell
If the American people had ever known the truth about what we Bushes have done to this nation, we would be chased down in the streets and lynched.
George H. W. Bush, 41st President, in interview with Sarah MacClendon, 1992
Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.
George W. Bush, 43rd president, BBC interview
Every war which Americans have fought or may fight in the future outside their own continental boundaries has been or will be a racket- a mean, cruel, yes, filthy racket….. Why don’t those damned oil companies fly their own flags on their personal property- maybe a flag with a gas pump on it.
Brigadier General Smedley D. Butler, from War is a Racket (1933)
The potential for private profit in U.S. war making has become almost impossible to exaggerate.
Chalmers Johnson, from “The War Business,” Harpers (2003)
Henry Ford, founder of Ford Motor Company, once stated there are two classes of financiers: 1) those who profit from war and use their influence to bring about war for profit, and 2) “constructive” financiers. Ford Motor Co., along with about 100 other major U.S. banks and corporations, belongs to the first group (Higham’s Trading with the Enemy). Indeed, Ford himself was actually decorated by the Nazis in 1938 for his service to Nazism.
Other prominent international banking families that simultaneously bankrolled Hitler, Stalin, and Roosevelt during the first half of the 20th century include the Rockefellers (Standard Oil, Chase Bank), the Rothschilds, the Schiffs, and the Warburgs, among others. The Bush family, in particular, has played a pivotal role in the orchestration of, and profit from, World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, numerous CIA secret wars, and the current “never-ending,” phony “War on Terror”.
Why would the world’s richest individuals simultaneously fund communism in Russia, fascism in Germany, and socialist democracy in the United States? Georgetown historian Carrol Quigley put it this way: “The powers of financial capitalism had a 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.” These financial powers had learned that war is the most profitable of all businesses and also the most effective means of changing the global political landscape. Thus, over the past two centuries at least, they have covertly manipulated politicians and nations into wars. Their ultimate goal was and is to establish a “New World Order”, a totalitarian one-world government ruled by the very few and very rich, i.e., them. Des Griffin has termed this a Fourth Reich of the Rich (Griffin, 1976). George Orwell and Aldous Huxley described what such a world might look like in their classic novels, 1984 and Brave New World.
President George H. W. Bush was not the first or only prominent man to proclaim this “New World Order”. Hitler, President Woodrow Wilson, author H.G. Wells and innumerable other politicians, writers and businessmen have also heralded its immanent arrival. David Rockefeller, Chairman of Chase-Manhattan Bank and arguably the most powerful American of the last half-century, proclaimed: “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the “New World Order.”
Among the most pro-active implementers of this centuries-old project to establish a one-world government is the Bush family, two of whom have become U.S. presidents. A brief summary of their major “accomplishments” should be sufficient to indicate that their activities constitute the highest crimes (mass murder, treason, and war profiteering) against the people of the United States and humanity.
Samuel Prescott Bush (1863-1948: father of Prescott Sheldon Bush, grandfather of George H.W. Bush, great grandfather of George W. Bush). Founder of the Buckeye Steel Castings Company in 1894, director of Remington Arms Company, and Chief of the Ordnance, Small Arms and Ammunition Section of the War Industries Board for World War I.
In 1918, just after the U.S. entered World War I, Samuel P. Bush, an Ohio steel executive, became chief of the Ordnance, Small Arms and Ammunition Section of the War Industries Board. In this capacity, he sold weapons made by manufacturers such as his own Remington Arms Company to 75% of the WWI combatants on both sides. Ebbets (2006) notes that the War Industries Board, an unholy alliance between government and the big munitions corporations of the day, was the fore-runner of today’s “military-industrial complex.” Other directors of the War Industries Board included Clarence Dillon, Wall Street banker and the so-called Chief of Ordnance for the Small Arms and Ammunition Section, Samuel Pryor, CEO of Remington Arms, and Bernard Baruch, who in his dual roles of Wall Street Banker and head of the War Industries Board made profits of over $200 million. Meanwhile, by the close of WWI in 1918, when this Bush/Baruch/Pryor/Dillon business venture officially ended, some 37,508,686 human beings had been killed in that conflict.
Congressional committee hearings in 1934 chaired by U.S. Senator Gerald Nye attacked Samuel Bush and other members of the War Industries Board as war profiteers and “Merchants of Death.” The committee found that salesmen from these companies had helped to manipulate the nations into World War I and the corporations then made astronomical profits from the sales of weapons, all at taxpayer expense, of course. In 1914, the German army under the Kaiser, armed mainly by Samuel Bush, was the largest and best armed in the world. After WWI, the German army was forced to disarm, but Bush was allowed to keep his many millions, and his arms business thrived. Bush went on to become the first president of the National Association of Manufacturers. In 1944, Bush was awarded a huge government contract to make armor casings for WWII.
Samuel Bush was also a partner in the Union Banking Corporation (UBC), which functioned as the American umbrella front for Germany’s wealthiest industrialists and industries and built up Hitler and the Nazi Party, thereby helping to bring about World War II. Journalist John Buchanan concludes that the Bush family has had their money invested on every side of every war since the Spanish American War, and that the longer each war lasted the more money they made.
Interestingly, most of the government records and correspondence of Samuel Bush’s arms deals have been burned “to save space” in the National Archives. This pattern of the systematic deletion of large portions of the public record is typical for activities of all the Bushes.
George Herbert Walker (father of Dorothy Walker, maternal grandfather of George H.W. Bush and maternal great grandfather of George W. Bush): Wall Street banker and director or president of G.H. Walker and Co., J.P. Morgan and Co., Guaranty Trust Co., W.A. Harriman and Co., and Union Banking Corporation. He was also co-founder of Brown Brothers, Harriman, Wall Street’s oldest and largest private investment house, and for many years, the world’s largest, private bank.
Walker was a St. Louis banker/stock broker and corporate wheeler-dealer who had insider business contracts with the premier families of America’s “robber baron” era; the Morgan, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Whitney, and Harriman families. His father had been a very successful dry goods wholesaler who had thrived on imports from England. That British connection paid for the Walker summer homes in Santa Barbara, California and at Kennebunkport, Maine- a locale still favored for Bush family reunions. Averell Harriman (Yale Skull & Bones secret society, class of 1913), inheritor of the Harriman railroad fortune, wanted corporate insider “Bert” Walker to help him create his own financial and intelligence-gathering organization. In 1919, Walker organized the W.A. Harriman & Co. private bank and became its president and CEO. He went on to co-found Brown Brothers, Harriman, which for many years was the largest private bank in the world.
In 1922, Walker and Averell Harriman went to Berlin to set up a German branch for their banking and investment operations, which were largely based on trading critical war resources such as steel and coal. There, they met with Fritz Thyssen, Germany’s wealthiest man and the coal and steel baron who later became Hitler’s prime sponsor and the financial architect of the Nazi war machine (Thyssen, I Paid Hitler). At that time, they also made arrangements to establish a bank for Thyssen on Wall Street. Two years later, Harriman formally began the Union Banking Corporation (UBC) in Manhattan in order to handle German funds supplied by the Thyssen-owned Nazi front Bank voor Handel en Scheepvarrt (BHS) in the Netherlands. The money was used for the mass purchase of American commodities to supply the Nazis. W.A. Harriman & Co. executives labeled these dealings the “Hitler Project.”
Using his insider connections on Wall Street as well as in Britain and Germany, Walker made his fortune helping to build up the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, financing their oil, coal, steel, and manganese industries, among others. He became President of Union Banking Corporation (UBC), which was actually a clearing house for a number of Thyssen-controlled enterprises and assets, including as many as a dozen businesses. In fact, government investigators later found that all the assets of UBC and its many related businesses belonged to Thyssen-controlled enterprises, such as his Bank Voor Handel en Sheepvaart in Rotterdam. UBC also bought and shipped overseas gold, steel, coal, and U.S. Treasury and war bonds to Germany to finance its industrial reorganization under the Nazis. Thus, UBCs function was to launder money for Hitler and supply raw materials essential for Germany’s waging World War II. Of course, Walker and others went to great pains to conceal the real nature of their business from the U.S. government. Cornelius Livense, a president of UBC even claimed he did not know the actual ownership of the company.
Walker’s most prominent American partners in financing Hitler’s war machine were E. Roland and Averell Harriman (Skull and Bones, ’17 and ’13) and his son-in-law, Prescott Bush (Skull and Bones, ’17). Together, these individuals ran numerous subsidiaries of UBC, including Harriman-Walker, the Hamburg-Amerika Line (the world’s largest private shipping line and a cover for (Thyssen’s) I.G. Farben’s Nazi espionage unit in the U.S.), the American Ship and Commerce Co. (which smuggled German agents, propaganda, and money into America to bribe American politicians to support the Nazi cause), the Harriman Fifteen Corporation, and the Silesian Holding Company. In addition, their Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation owned and operated a complex of steel-making, coal-mining, and zinc-mining activities in Oswiecim, one of Poland’s richest mineral regions. That is where Hitler set up the Auschwitz slave concentration, were millions reportedly died. Friederich Flick, who owned two-thirds of this Consolidated Silesian Steel, was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment by the Nuremburg Tribunal. Averell Harriman owned the other 1/3 of Consolidated Silesian Steel. He and the other American partners were never tried for their participation in the so-called Holocaust.
The Nazi army was largely equipped by Flick, Harriman, Walker, and Bush with materials stolen from Poland, which Hitler invaded illegally in 1939. Meanwhile, Soviet army vehicles were fueled by oil pumped from Baku wells revived by the Harriman/Walker/Bush enterprise.
A 1934 Congressional investigation determined that the Hamburg-Amerika Line subsidized a wide range of Nazi propaganda efforts in both Germany and the U.S. Nonetheless, when the U.S. government seized the Silesian-American Corp. in 1942 under the “Trading with the Enemy Act,” George Herbert Walker was still the senior director of the company.
Prescott Sheldon Bush (son of Samuel Prescott Bush and Fiona Sheldon Bush, father of George H.W. Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush’s grandfather; 1895-1972, Yale, Skull & Bones, class of 1917): Wall Street banker, Vice President of W. A. Harriman and Co., and director or senior partner in and Brown Brothers, Harriman and Union Banking Corporation (UBC), and a manager of UBC subsidiaries, including the Silesian-American Corp., the Holland-American Trading Corp. the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation, and Consolidated Silesian Steel Corporation, all of which were Nazi front organizations.
After marrying George Herbert Walker’s daughter, Dorothy in 1926, Prescott Bush became managing director of Brown Brothers, Harriman and the Union Banking Corporation (UBC). In that same year, an associate of Samuel Bush and Clarence Dillon acquired $70 million from Fritz Thyssen to set up the United Steel Works Corporation or the German Steel Trust. This became Germany’s largest industrial corporation. His directorship extended from 1920’s through the 1940’s, when, in Oct. 1942, the U.S. government seized UBC’s assets under the “Trading with the Enemy Act.” U.S. government investigations at that time revealed that Bush’s Nazi-front bank had worked directly with Fritz Thyseen’s German Steel Trust produced 50.8% of Nazi Germany’s pig iron, 41.4% of Nazi Germany’s universal plate, 36% of the heavy plate, 38.5% of the galvanized steel metal, 45.5% of the pipes and tubes, 35% of the explosives, and 22.1% of the wire used by Nazi Germany. Even so, Prescott Bush failed to divest himself of more than a dozen “enemy national” relationships that continued until as late as 1951 (Buchanan and Michael, 2005).
Another story which seems to have been expunged from the public record is that Bush and his partners profited from the slave labor at the Auschwitz concentration camp, via their partnership with Fritz Thyssen’s I.G. Farben, the third largest business in Germany under Hitler. Prescott Bush, William Stamps Farish, Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company, and the I.G. Farben Company financed and built the Auschwitz camp, which opened in 1940, to produce artificial rubber and gasoline from Poland’s coal. Hitler’s government supplied political opponents as the expendable “labor force.” Indeed, a Dutch intelligence agent reports that a portion of the slave labor force in Poland was actually “managed by Prescott Bush” (Clamor Magazine, 2002). The story of how the Bush’s family fortune is based on Holocaust blood money has been suppressed by the U.S. media and has certainly not appeared in any of the major Bush family biographies.
Other powerful business concerns which aided Hitler preceding and during WWII include the Rockefeller family’s Standard Oil and Chase Bank, GE, ITT, RCA, the Ford Motor Co., and the DuPont and Morgan families. When the U.S. government seized control of UBC under the “Trading with the Enemy Act” in 1942, all the shares were owned by E. Roland Harriman, Prescott Bush, three Nazi executives, and two other Bush associates. Four of the eight directors were members of the Yale secret society Skull and Bones, class of ’17.
At that time, the U.S. government also seized several UBC subsidiaries also run by Bush-Harriman, including The Holland-American Trading Corp., the Seamless Steel Equipment Corp., the Silesian-American Corp. (which supplied coal to the Nazi war industry), and the Harriman Fifteen Holding Company. Despite the fact that the U.S. government determined that huge sections of Prescott Bush’s empire were operated on behalf of Nazi Germany and had greatly assisted the Nazi war effort, the U.S. government awarded each of the UBC directors, including Prescott Bush, $1.5 million in compensation for their seized assets. Furthermore, U.S. government documents indicate that between 1942 and 1951, Prescott Bush maintained business contacts with named Nazis, moving gold, diamonds, and other assets to those individuals. This activity only stopped in 1951, upon the death of Fritz Thyssen in Argentina (Buchanan and Michael, 2005).
In summary, Hitler’s rise to power was only possible due to financial and logistical support given by super wealthy Wall Street and London financiers, including Prescott Bush, George Herbert Walker, and Averell Harriman, among others. In turn, these individuals profited enormously from the war they helped create. The major part of the Bush family fortune is due to the “Hitler Project”, which included the slave labor concentration camp at Auschwitz. Although Bush, Walker, the Harrimans, and other Bonesmen in the Union Banking Corporation were found guilty of treason under the “Trading with the Enemies Act” in 1942, their identities were never revealed by the media. Meanwhile, by the end of WWII in 1945, their “Hitler Project” had resulted in the killing of 62,537,400 human beings.
After the war, Prescott Bush went on to serve as a director of Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc. (CBS), Prudential Insurance, Dresser Industries, Inc., Hydrocarbon Research, Inc., Wanadium Corp. of America, and U.S. Guaranty Trust, among other companies. In 1948, Prescott Bush used his Holocaust blood money to run for Senator from Connecticut. He was defeated, in large part because media exposure of the Bush family’s long history of supporting eugenics research at Yale. But by 1952, Bush was a leader in the push to hand the Republican presidential nomination to WWII general and hero, Dwight D. Eisenhower. On July 28, 1952, as the election approached, Connecticut’s senior Senator, James O’Brien MCMahon, died mysteriously at the age of 48. This was extremely convenient for Prescott Bush. At a special delegated meeting of mostly Yale-affiliated Republican party leaders, Prescott was selected to receive the Republican nomination for that recently-vacated Senate seat. He was then swept into office in the 1952 election, running on the same ticket as Eisenhower. By a technicality, Bush instantly became Connecticut’s senior Senator, with extra powers in Congress. He was re-elected in 1956 (again, on Eisenhower’s coat tails) and retired from the Senate in 1960. Whilst in Washington, Prescott Bush was President Eisenhower’s confidant and daily golf partner throughout his two terms.
Richard Nixon’s biography reveals that it was Prescott Bush and the Orange County Republican Party that gave him his start in politics. Prescott Bush had placed an add in an L.A. newspaper to recruit someone willing to run against a Democratic Congressman. (This particular Democratic Congressman had introduced a bill that would repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 (the legislation that gave to international bankers the exclusive monopoly rights to print money, at interest, for the U.S. government). Nixon answered the ad, won the Congressional seat through various dirty campaign tricks (which became his modus operendi), and later, was Prescott Bush’s personal pick for Vice President on the 1952 Republican (Eisenhower) presidential ticket. Thus, from the very beginning of his political career, Nixon was a mouthpiece/puppet for the Bush dynasty.
George Herbert Walker Bush (son of Prescott Sheldon Bush and Dorothy Walker (daughter of George Herbert Walker), father of George W. Bush; 1924-present, Yale, Skull & Bones, class of 1948).
Our 41st president’s political life has been intertwined with four of the most powerful and profitable business enterprises on the planet: banking, oil, the arms/intelligence industries, and sales of illegal drugs. Tarpley and Chaitkin’s George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992) offers the most detailed compilation of his shadowy activities. George H.W. Bush began his career as an oil salesman for Dresser Industries and went on to co-found his own oil company, Zapata Petroleum Corp. of Houston. This would spin off to Zapata Offshore and Pennzoil/Zapata. Bush was president of Zapata Oil from 1954 to 1964 and Zapata Offshore from 1964 to 1966.
Persistent reports indicate Bush was also an undercover CIA agent in the early 60’s, playing prominent roles in the “Bay of Pigs” invasion of Cuba (code name: Operation Zapata: see names of Bush-owned companies above) in 1961 and probably the Kennedy assassination in 1963. Newly-released FBI documents place Bush in Miami in 1960 and 1961, recruiting Cubans for the Bay of Pigs invasion. That’s how he met Felix Rodriguez, who became part of a special CIA shooter team. George Bush, Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis, and Richard Nixon have all been traced to Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, the day of Kennedy’s assassination. Hunt and Sturgis were among the 6 to 8 “derelicts” or “hobos” found in boxcars near railroad tracks behind the grassy knoll near Dealy Plaza. But they were never finger-printed or photographed in association with Kennedy’s murder.
Bush was elected to Congress in 1966, but lost a bid for the Senate in 1970. Even so, Nixon appointed him ambassador to the UN in 1971. Here, he took orders from Henry Kissinger (who earlier had worked for the Rockefeller’s Chase-Manhattan Bank) and became a Kissinger-clone. In 1973, Nixon appointed Bush as Republican National Chairman, where he seems to have played an important, behind-the-scenes role in the Watergate Scandal. Then, as Ambassador to China, Bush helped Kissinger oust Cambodian leader Lon Nol and install Pol Pot and the murderous Khmer Rouge regime. More than 2 of a total 7 million Cambodians perished in “the killing fields” of Pol Pot. This estimated slaughter 32% of Cambodia’s population between 1969 and 1979 is commonly considered the greatest genocide of the 20th century on a per capita basis.
In 1976, Bush became Director of the CIA. When elected Reagan’s Vice President in 1980, he put his family fortune into a blind trust under the control of his close friend, William Stamps Farish, III, who also had inherited much of the Auschwitz death camp fortune. (Farish’s grandfather was president of Standard Oil and controller of the global cartel between Standard Oil and the German Fritz Thysenn’s I.G. FarbenCorp. which operated the Auschwitz slave labor camps).
Some of Bush’s other notable, but generally under-reported, “accomplishments” include:
1) Along with friend, Wall Street banker and CIA director William Casey, he helped to orchestrate the “October Surprise,” in which the Iranian government was bribed or coerced into holding American hostages until after the 1980 election, thereby helping to ensure a Reagan/Bush victory over incumbent President Jimmy Carter (Stich, 2001, Honegger, 1989).
2) The failed assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan in 1981 occurred two months after
Reagan took office. It is probably no coincidence that the would-be assassin, John Hinkley, Jr., belongs to a Houston oil family with long-standing business ties to the Bushes. The Houston Post reported that on the day Reagan was shot, Scott Hinkley, brother of the would-be-assassin, had been invited to dine with Neil Bush, son of Vice President George H.W. Bush (Tarpley and Chaitkin, 1992). This story, briefly mentioned once by NBC’s anchor John Chancellor, has also been largely expunged from the public record.
3) Presiding over the Savings and Loan/HUD scandal, in which taxpayers were made to pay over $500 billion to bail out the failed S&L banks. Son Neil Bush, director of Silverado Savings and Loan in Denver, is reported to have personally profited by about $1 billion (Bowen, 1991; Brewton, 1992, Dowbenko, 2003).
4) As Vice President under Reagan and therefore Head of the National Security Council’s
Groups on Crisis Management, Drug Addiction, and Terrorism, Bush directed the Iran-Contra drug scandal, in which the secret government (comprised of ex-CIA and military intelligence operatives and businessmen) diverted profits from CIA-smuggled drugs into America and illegal arms sales to Iran to illegally fund the revolutionary Contras of Nicaragua and the Mujahadeen of Afghanistan. Under CIA protection, covert operators flew vast quantities of cocaine and heroin into the poor neighborhoods of America, again using drug profits to fund both sides of the illegal covert war in Nicaragua, etc. (See Webb, 1999; Dowbenko, 2003; Cockburn and St. Clair, 1998; Scott and Marshall, 1991)
5) Under Bush’s watch, the CIA spent over $3 billion dollars fomenting holy war (“jihad”) in Afghanistan by training and funding the Mujahadeen terrorists (including Osama bin Laden), as well as their networks, and training camps in Afghanistan. Thus, the Taliban, the Mujahadeen, and Osama bin Laden were established as CIA assets and remain so to this day. Not coincidentally, under CIA supervision during the 1980’s, Afghanistan became the world’s number one heroin producer and exporter. In 2000, the U.S.-supported Taliban government banned the production of poppies (heroin). However, after the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and installation of a new American puppet government, Afghanistan is again the world’s number one heroin producer.
6) Under G.H.W. Bush’s supervision of the first “War on Terrorism,” hundreds of thousands of
innocent civilians were killed, tortured and disappeared in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. Another million or so each, again mostly civilians, were killed in U.S.-supported and funded wars in Afghanistan and Iraq/Iran.
7) According to ABC’s newsman Ted Koppel, “George Bush, operating largely behind the scenes throughout the 1980’s, initiated and supported much of the financing, intelligence, and military help that built Saddam’s Iraq into the aggressive power that the United States ultimately had to destroy…..” New York Times columnist William Safire stated further: “Iraq-gate is uniquely horrendous: a scandal about the systematic abuse of power by misguided leaders of three democratic nations (the U.S., Britain, and Italy) to secretly finance the arms buildup of a dictator.”
8) Presiding over invasions into both Panama and Iraq in which some 8000 Panamanians and
over 280,000 Iraqis were killed. The U.S had illegally sold tens of billions of dollars worth of weapons, including chemical and biological weapons, to Saddam Hussein during the 1980’s to help Iraq become the strongest regional power in the Middle East. Evidence indicates that Saddam was more or less set up for the Gulf War when U.S. Ambassador Glaspie told him the U.S. had no interest in his border dispute with Kuwait. I.e., it was a trap.
9) Journalist John Loftus reported that George H.W. Bush had 41 ex-Nazis working for him in the White House during his presidency.
There were also perks for this hardworking politician/businessman. According to retired Brigadier General Bowen (The Immaculate Deception: The Bush Crime Family Exposed), Bush and Saddam Hussein split about $250 billion in Persian Gulf oil kickbacks during the 1980’s, which were laundered through the scandal-ridden, CIA-proprietary Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).
In 1988, Project Censored awarded the honor of “Top Censored Story” to the story of George H.W. Bush, revealing “how the major mass media ignored, overlooked or under-covered at least ten critical stories reported in America’s alternative press that raised serious questions about the Republican candidate, George Bush, dating from his reported role as a CIA “asset” in 1963 to his Presidential campaign’s connection with a network of anti-Semites with Nazi and fascist affiliations in 1988.”
Today, Bush Sr. is a highly paid consultant for the Carlyle Group, America’s 11th largest military contractor. In this capacity, he went to Saudi Arabia to meet with the Bin Laden family and the Saudi Royal family in 1998 and 2000. The Carlyle Group is reaping billions of dollars in profits from Jr. Bush’s “War on Terror.” Thus, just as his father and grandfather profiteered through their business partnerships with Fritz Thyssen during World War II, G.H.W. Bush has profiteered handsomely from his insider connections with Saddam Hussein, the Bin Ladens, the House of Saud, and various other corrupt leaders in the current phony “War on Terror.”
George Walker Bush (1946-present, Yale, Skull & Bones, class of 1968).
Prior to becoming governor of Texas, George W. Bush founded and ran the Harken Energy Corp., which was financed in part by the Bin Laden family of Saudia Arabia. Harken never found any oil in Texas, but before it went bankrupt, Bush sold all his stocks, illegally profiting by millions through his insider knowledge. As governor of Texas, Bush presided over the execution of 152 inmates, including mentally retarded prisoners- more than any other governor in US history. He did, however, pardon one death row prisoner, a serial killer. As governor, he changed pollution laws to benefit energy companies and thereby made Texas the most polluted state in the nation.
After losing the popular election in 2000 by over 500,000 votes, George W. gained the White House when the politically biased Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that the Florida Supreme Court should be over-ruled and the re-counting of tens of thousands of disputed ballots should be disallowed. Major Florida newspapers later concluded that Al Gore won Florida and the Presidency. Some of this “selected” president’s most notable “accomplishments” include:
1) Dissolving more international treaties than any president in U.S. history, including the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, the Biological Weapons Convention, the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the Kyoto Protocol on Global Warming, the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Rome Treaty to Create an International Court. All this, he accomplished before 9/11/01.
2) Presiding over the secret government’s execution and cover-up of the killing of about 3,000 people at the World Trade Center and Pentagon on September 11, 2001 (see many references below).
3) Presiding over the greatest rollback of Constitutional civil liberties in the history of the country. The U.S.A. Patriot Act and Homeland Security Acts, passed in 2001 and 2002, respectively, along with the pending Patriot II Act eliminate or threaten Constitutional rights guaranteed in our 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.
4) Ordering the high-tech massacre of many thousands of innocent and defenseless Afghani and Iraqi civilians (now numbering over 650,000) who posed no security threat to the U.S. whatsoever and had no part in the crimes of 9/11. The primary resources thereby controlled, of course, are oil in Iraq, an oil pipeline in Afghanistan and opium/heroin in Afghanistan. The Bush administration’s perpetual “War on Terror” aka “Long War” is clearly a response to demands from the major oil companies and Council on Foreign Relations. The strategy, as outlined by the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), is American domination of the entire world through conquest and control of Eurasia, with it’s ¾ of the world’s population and ¾ of the world’s resources. In particular the plan calls for controlling the world’s last, greatest fossil fuel reserves in the Persian Gulf and Caspian Basin as well as rolling back the social contract and civil liberties in the United States, thereby implementing a repressive police state at home.
5) Launching a “pre-emptive” war against Iraq in violation of international law (including the
UN Charter, the Nuremburg Tribunal and the Geneva Accords) on the basis of entirely false pretexts. Representative Henry Waxman (D-CA) carefully documents 237 lies told by the Bush administration in their efforts to convince the American people, the Congress, and the UN to wage war against Iraq. Interestingly, this document is no longer on the web. The pretexts used to justify the invasion were all lies, namely that: 1) Iraq posed an “immanent threat” based on its possession of weapons of mass destruction, including biological, chemical and nuclear weapons, and 2) Saddam Hussein was partly responsible for 9/11 and had long-term contacts with al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. Actually, the CIA had publicly denied these assertions prior to the invasion.
6) Conducting an endless “War on Terror” (i.e., military conquest abroad and imposition of a police state at home for the benefit of international corporations). In fact, all evidence shows that the “War on Terror,” like the staged 9/11 “war pretext incident” used to justify it, is a fraud. Rather, anyone willing to look at the objective evidence must conclude that the U.S. government (with it’s CIA, School of Americas, etc.) is greatest purveyor of terror in the world. This phony war has also been used to justified massive spying on Americans as well as torture throughout the world. And of course, it has also been used to justify massive new infusions of American tax dollars to defense contractors.
7) At the time of the Bush Administration’s bombing of Afghanistan, oil and gas reserves in the nearby Caspian Basin were estimated at $5 trillion, with many major U.S. corporations, including Unocal, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Pennzoil, BP-Amoco, Enron and VP Dick Cheney’s Halliburton, standing to make a “killing” off the building of an oil pipeline through Afghanistan. Enron, the largest contributor to the Bush-Cheney campaign conducted the feasibility study for the $2.5 billion trans-Caspian pipeline. In addition, the estimated value of heroin revenues to U.S. banks once a U.S. puppet government was installed (under former UNOCAL consultant Hammed Karzai) is estimated at upwards of $300 billion.
8) Presiding over the loss, mostly by outsourcing, of some 2.5 million American jobs in his first two years in office.
9) Emptying the U.S. Treasury by granting trillions of dollars worth of tax cuts to the richest 2% of Americans. Bush thereby squandered the $7 trillion surplus he inherited from Clinton and moved the total federal deficit to exceed a record $8 trillion, mainly by granting gigantic tax cuts to the rich and making huge increases in military spending.
10) Presiding over one of the greatest Wall Street scandals in U.S. history (Enron, Worldcom, and other corporations) and the related 2001 stock market crashes (with the concurrent loss of $7 trillion of investor’s wealth).
11) Presiding over the largest energy crisis in U.S. history. When Enron and a host of other energy corporations exploited California’s de-regulated energy market by gaming the system and creating artificial energy shortages, thereby bilking the citizens of California of tens of billions of dollars, Bush and FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) refused to interfere.
12) In concert with the Republican Congress, systematically destroying the social contract that has been in effect since FDR initiated the New Deal, through de-funding and further crippling education, social services, health care programs, etc.
13) Amassing the worst environmental record of any U.S. president in history, through systematically weakening and rolling back all major environmental laws and regulations.
The bottom line is that the Bush administration has utilized 9/11, which was orchestrated and covered up by the corporate/government/media complex, as a pretext for imposing an imperial dictatorship and police state on the United States and imposing endless war abroad.
Four generations of Bushes, along with a relatively small group of international investment bankers and corporate leaders, have been instrumental in creating and profiting from extremely costly and destructive wars. They have done this by financing a series of great enemies (from the Soviets and the Nazis, to Ho Chi Minh, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden). They have reaped tremendous profits from the wars they orchestrated. This transnational, fascist, financial cartel has operated as a de facto secret government to manipulate U.S. foreign policy, as well that of other countries, including those of our official “enemies.” The “Great Plan” which these individuals have been working so hard to usher in calls for the destruction of the United States of America as a sovereign nation and the establishment of a “New World Order”, which would effectively be a “Fourth Reich of the Rich.” Thus, the Bushes and the other members of this elite, international, fascist cartel are all guilty of the highest crimes against the American people and humanity. The Bushes, as a key family in this criminal effort, have personally profited from all the principle businesses of empire, including banking (usury), energy (oil), and sales of illicit drugs and weapons/intelligence.
Three generations of Bushes have been involved in America’s most elite secret society, Yale’s Skull and Bones, which many believe to be a Satanic order. Historian Anthony Sutton details the history of Skull and Bones in his seminal work, America’s Secret Establishment, An Introduction to the Order of Skull and Bones. The Skull and Bones secret society was established at Yale in 1832 as an American chapter (Chapter 322) of a German secret society, called The Illuminati. Both these secret societies also call themselves “The Order of Death.” The money used to establish Skull and Bones came from 19th-century America’s largest criminal syndicate, Russell and Company, which amassed a fortune through running opium from Turkey to China on Yankee clipper ships. Thus, Skull and Bones, was always a secret society with ties to various other secret societies, including the Order of the Illuminati, the Masons, the (British “Round Table”) Group, etc. Each of these and no doubt many other secret societies shares a common goal: to bring about a New World Order,” “a planned order with heavily restricted individual freedom without Constitutional protection, without national boundaries, or cultural distinction” (Sutton, 1982).
The Order utilizes the Hegelian dialectic of creating and directing opposite forces (“thesis-antithesis”) in order to foment conflict. These conflicts are used to both generate great profits for themselves, destroy sovereign nations, create mass destruction and death for others, and to move society toward their desired “synthesis”, i.e., the New World Order, which of course they intend to rule. According to Sutton, between 1833 and 1983 about 20 to 30 old East Coast American families came to dominate the Order of Skull and Bones.
The United Nations has been designed to be the fundamental governance structure of their New World Order once the nations of the world have been destroyed.
A brief look at statistics indicates that these “Orders of Death” have been quite successful in bringing about tremendous death and destruction to the world.
Rough tally of human beings killed by the New World Order so far:
World War I 37+ million
World War II 62+ million
Korean War 3 million
Southeast Asian Wars (Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia) 6 million
Iraq War (1991-2004) about 3 million
Afghanistan Wars of 1980s and 2001 over 1 million
Other miscellaneous CIA and “Third World” Wars over 5 million
Russians killed in one decade in WWI
and under Lenin and Stalin 75 million
Chinese killed by Mao Tse Tung 100 milllion
Rough total over 289 million
It seems obvious that unless and until the Bush dynasty and their NWO associates are exposed and brought to justice, they will continue to orchestrate and profit from future wars, to the detriment of all humanity, all other species, and entire global ecosystem.
Investigative journalist John Buchanan was recently interviewed on John Syzmanski’s talk show. In these interviews, Buchanan described what has happened in his own life since he published his first article on the Bush-Nazi connection in 2003. His explains that the sources for this story were hundreds of pages of government documents he examined and Xeroxed from the National Archives and U.S. Library of Congress. Although he tried to turn these documents over the major media outlets such as CNN and the major TV networks, the New York Times, the L.A. Times, and the Washington Post, etc., nobody was interested in picking up the story.
So in order to get this crucial story out, Buchanan ran for President in 2004, registering as a Republican so that he could run against Bush in the New Hampshire primary. On February 4, 2004, Buchanan was kidnapped by two alleged secret service agents, who he believes were actually thugs working for Karl Rove. When he later attempted to speak at the National Press Club, Buchanan was threatened and harassed and on Feb. 10, he was arrested again on phony charges, including 14 counts of felony-aggravated stalking of someone who was never named or produced. Nonetheless, his imprisonment was dragged out for 7 months, during which time he was threatened with being locked up for 70 years. He was given a public defense lawyer who informed him 10 minutes before his trial that he should plead guilty because she had misplaced all his defense files. Even so, Buchanan was rescued by a legitimate lawyer who came forward at the last minute and his case was thrown out of court for lack of substance. The intimidation and harassment continued, however, forcing Buchanan to move to 50 different cities in a single year. However, even though he has been harassed, intimidated, and arrested on phony charges, Buchanan continues his courageous efforts to expose the massive and systemic corruption that infects our body politic.
In his new book, Fixing America; Breaking the Stranglehold of Corporate Rule, Big Media, and the Religious Right, Buchanan outlines several essential steps for reclaiming our democracy and our country:
1) End corporate rule by a) outlawing corporate lobbying, and b) overturning the 1886 Supreme Court ruling (Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad) that illegally granted corporations the rights of personhood.
2) Dismante the military-industrial complex by taking the profit out of war.
3) Dismantle the media monopolies by reforming the media and reinstating the Fairness Doctrine.
To these sensible solutions I would like to add several other recommendations:
4) Withdraw from the World Trade Organization (WTO) and all international trade agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the General Agreement on Trade and Tarriffs (GATT). These trade rules favor the interests of large, multinational corporations over those of people and the environment.
5) Withdraw from the United Nations, which is the Trojan Horse of the New World Order.
6) Repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 so that the U.S. government, not private international bankers, is empowered to issue money, as provided for in the Constitution.
7) Require that all secret societies be disbanded. These would include the Masons, Skull and Bones, the Bilderberger Group, and many more. Secret societies hide criminal activities.
8) Bring the Bush family and other international war criminals to justice.
But what can we do now? We can begin by informing ourselves, breaking the conspiracy of silence (and resulting ignorance), and speaking and sharing the truth with others.

AE911Truth’s Presenter Team “Star”
Volunteer Spotlight: Stan Beattie
tan Beattie, PE, a member of the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Presenter Team, became convinced that the official story of the events of September 11, 2001, was false after reading Dr. David Griffin’s book, The New Pearl Harbor, in 2004.
He became so committed to sharing the truth with his fellow Americans that in 2007 he flew from his home outside Detroit, Michigan, to Washington, D.C., to join a protest on the Mall against the Bush surge of the Iraq War. While Stan was walking on the Mall, he met people from DC911Truth, signed their petition, and proudly held up one of their placards. Shortly thereafter, he watched AE911Truth’s two-hour Blueprint for Truth. Since then, he has become both an active member of AE’s Presenter Team and a financial contributor.
Stan also supports Firefighters for 9/11 Truth. In fact, he has visited fire stations in Farmington Hills, near Detroit, and in Brooklyn, New York, and talked with the firefighters about 9/11. One of the people who came up to thank him after his presentation in Brighton, Michigan, said that his son had been to a firefighters’ gathering, where the general feeling was that “controlled demolitions brought the buildings down.”
WTC Building #7, a 47-story high-rise not hit by an airplane, exhibited all the characteristics of classic controlled demolition with explosives:
- Rapid onset of collapse
- Sounds of explosions
- Symmetrical structural failure
- Free-fall acceleration through the path of what was greatest resistance
- Imploded, collapsing completely, landing almost in its own footprint
- Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
- Expert corroboration from the top European controlled demolition professional
- Foreknowledge of “collapse” by media, NYPD, FDNY
In the aftermath of WTC7’s destruction, strong evidence of demolition using incendiary devices was discovered:
- FEMA finds rapid oxidation and intergranular melting on structural steel samples
- Several tons of molten metal reported by numerous highly qualified witnesses
- Chemical signature of the incendiary thermite found in solidified molten metal, and dust samples
WTC7 exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:
- Slow onset with large visible deformations
- Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, to the side most damaged by the fires)
- Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
- High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer lasting fires have never collapsed
As seen in this revealing photo, the Twin Towers’ destruction exhibited all of the characteristics of destruction by explosives:
- Destruction proceeds through the path of greatest resistance at nearly free-fall acceleration
- Improbable symmetry of debris distribution
- Extremely rapid onset of destruction
- Over 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes
- Multi-ton steel sections ejected laterally
- Mid-air pulverization of 90,000 tons of concrete & metal decking
- Massive volume of expanding pyroclastic-like clouds
- 1200-foot-diameter debris field: no “pancaked” floors found
- Isolated explosive ejections 20–40 stories below demolition front
- Total building destruction: dismemberment of steel frame
- Several tons of molten metal found under all 3 high-rises
- Evidence of thermite incendiaries found by FEMA in steel samples
- Evidence of explosives found in dust samples
The three high-rises exhibited none of the characteristics of destruction by fire:
- Slow onset with large visible deformations
- Asymmetrical collapse which follows the path of least resistance (laws of conservation of momentum would cause a falling, intact, from the point of plane impact, to the side most damaged by the fires)
- Evidence of fire temperatures capable of softening steel
- High-rise buildings with much larger, hotter, and longer-lasting fires have never collapsed
WhoWhatWhy.com informs readers of NYC ballot initiative
Editor’s Note: Investigative reporter Russ Baker launched the online publication WhoWhatWhy.com five years ago to do what he calls “forensic journalism”—that is, reporting that is “rigorous, relentless, and scientific.” Sounds like a description of AE911Truth’s research, doesn’t it? In mid-August, Baker wrote an article about the NYC Coalition for Accountability NOW (NYC CAN), and interviewed its founder, Ted Walter. You can read the piece here:
Putting a 9/11 Mystery on the Ballot
I was standing blocks from Building 7 of the World Trade Center complex and staring directly at it when it collapsed.
Working for the Los Angeles Times, I had arrived at the World Trade Center as the South and North Tower were making their rapid and deadly descents in the morning. That afternoon, I called in a series of reports to a staffer in the New York bureau.
I was literally on the phone with the office at 5:21 p.m., describing the fires burning in the structure as the building began—and completed—its remarkably fast, smooth descent to the ground. I described the building neatly pancaking, and the Pulitzer Prize winner on the other end taking my dictation declared: “That sounds like a controlled demolition.”
It’s likely that no one has given more presentations on this subject than Stan other than AE911Truth founder Richard Gage, AIA, according to Daniel Noel, AE911Truth’s Presenter Team leader. Noel is especially impressed with how many ways Stan finds to get the word out both in his own community (where he calls upon his broad range of contacts in the non-profit world, leaflets in various neighborhoods, and reaches out to people he doesn’t know) and beyond his community. “Stan travels far away from home just to present AE911Truth to the public, and he systematically looks for presentation opportunities wherever he goes,” recounts Noel.
Between when he joined the Presenter Team in 2010 and the end of 2012, Stan gave 12 presentations about 9/11 Truth. In the 18 months since then, he’s made another 15 presentations in Michigan, Florida, and Washington, D.C. The wide variety of groups he has spoken to include Rotary Clubs, the Destroyer Escort Sailors Association, Mid-Michigan Atheists and Humanists, the Southeast Michigan Mensa organization, Grey Panthers, and Ann Arbor Science and Skeptics. Most recently, he was invited to give a presentation on July 25 at the Veterans for Peace Convention, which was held at the University of North Carolina in Asheville.
One time Stan presented the evidence to a group of 16 at a friend’s home. Later his friend called and told him that several people who attended the gathering said they’d had trouble sleeping that night and wished there had been a follow-up meeting to discuss the 9/11 events.
Sometimes Stan isn’t the presenter but organizes presentations for others. For example, in 2011 he secured a venue for Richard Gage to speak at Lawrence Technological University in Detroit. At the event was a Fox News reporter, who invited Richard to the studio to be interviewed on that night’s 10 PM local news broadcast.
Stan’s reward for all this volunteer work is simply the “satisfaction I get from fulfilling a mission,” as he puts it. “I’m motivated by a quest for justice.”
If you would like to help introduce the truth of 9/11 to fellow Americans — or citizens of any country — consider joining the AE911Truth Presenter Team. Simply fill out a volunteer form. Just think: You will have the opportunity of showing the evidence to people who have never been exposed to it before. This could well advance the cause of securing a real investigation. Stan Beattie, for one, is sure you won’t have any regrets.
