9.11 investigation

OPEN LETTER TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE WASHINGTON POST AND ANY OTHER APOLOGETIC

If any of you were fooled even a little by the NYT or the WP blabbering about their office dramas as responsible for the wrong direction to the people on the war in Iraq, think again! These monsters have an agenda to shove their bilge down our collective throats and that is the only thing they are doing. They have smelled the air and see the possibility of a Kerry victory where radical America would be less stymied than under the bush and the dick and think that just in case we take the lot of them to court charged with genocide, they had better make their peace with an American public that despises them each day more.
Dear NYT, WP and the rest of the truly guilty for genocide media:

You are not only not off the hook; you will hang from it! You have lied again to the American people and your lie is attempting to creep back under the skin of the public which is in the process of cleansing itself from the poison that you feed it daily. You have apologized for a series of unimportant and probably false stories of administrative and management decisions which, according to your insinuation, had nothing to do with the war and its very real results which you actively helped to bring to us and, especially, to the 20,000dead innocent Iraquis that your guilt is piling up. You have not apologized to them or the 1,000 dead Americans and hundreds of other nationalities.

Let us be totally objective with numbers about this. Many of your "journalists" also had access to the information about Bush and the killers accompanying him having carried out 9/11. Indeed, the more fascistic among them (R. Murdoch and his henchmen, etc.) knew well before hand and helped in the preparations. That's partial responsibility for about 3100 American lives. You helped to usher in the Afghan War soon after 9/11 by failing to expose the overwhelming evidence pointing to Bush and cronies for manipulating events leading up to the great tragedy and by hiding the real reason for the invasion - Unocal's pipeline. The 25,000 people you helped to kill there have been now sent to the back of your toilette papers, you do not want us to mix oranges and oranges to figure out the real number of cadavers piling up outside your offices. With a very limited vision of your complicity with this murderous psychopathic diabolical regime, so far we have you partially responsible for 49,100 deaths - these 28,100 and the 21,000 from Iraq.

Many journalists and other media/information specialists all over the world also suspect American journalists (or their bosses) of fingering colleagues with "incorrect" (read anti-American) politics for extermination at the hands of the world's most psychopathic killing machine - the CIA. Since Bush's arrival has meant open season on these people all over the world to the delight of the American media, we can safely assume your direct participation in the death of the remaining 900 needed for you to reach the magical number of 50,000 souls of dead people at your individual graves each time one of you bastards die. They will be lying there in wait to carry you to the hell you so richly deserve for leading this once potentially great nation into the hands of Satan's retarded son. And now you want to come back into the fold of the People by apologizing for an administrative mistake? Do you really think that more lies on top of the old ones is going to fool us even more? Or maybe you are so out of touch that your new world order globalization values make you think that you will be able to buy forgiveness from the 6 billion People which you have condemned to the ovens with contempt and derision?

You are as sick as your masters and they are almost as sick as the grand master from hell they bow to. But you not only know this and much more of your crimes that are becoming exposed through your lies or in spite of them: you also know that we are coming for you soon and you will do your level best to keep that knowledge from us, even if you have to participate in a few more 9/11s or an atomic bomb here and there in our country. You know Chenney, Rumsfeld and Ashcroft are planning this clincher as the final manipulation before springing the fascist bear trap on the ignorant country around election time and by that time your guilt will be so complete that nothing that you or I do or say will ever pull you out of the hole in hell you will have dug yourselves into. You will have ceased being human and we will search you out like the virus you are and stomp you into oblivion like the rest of your hellspawn masters. Your kingdom of death and fear will have lasted but a few years and you will have almost dragged the planet and the human race to the brink of extinction for your personal selfish pleasures. For this you and your seed will not be allowed to survive; the cosmic forces that drives the People that will be victorious in this war will ensure not only that you die in pain but that all your offspring cease populating a cleansed planet. What we need and expect from you before the bear trap shuts is much more than this mealy mouthed lying apology and you can start with confessions, contrition, repentance and exposure of your sins and your dirty knowledge of our ailing country. You have started with the wrong step again if you really want to survive the wrath of the coming age of the People and you have very little time with which to fix it. Your move. We're watching you!!!

NYT against Chavez: they moved wrong again... 15.Aug.2004 07:15

Dave

The New York Times is cowtowing the killers in the administration and helping them to justify the genocide they are going to pull off in Venezuela. Genocide is the only thing that is going to save them there because Chavez has given the poor people of the country their greatest weapons - information and discernment - with which to defend themselves from the globalization elite. I think no more chances for the corporate media are in order and we start treating them as the enemy they truly are right now. All humans must take them out now!!!

CASE IN POINT--BOTH BUSH PRESDENTS-- SCUM BAGS!
By Ted Sampley
March/April/May 1997

Former President George Bush, who bailed out of a crippled Navy Avenger bomber 53 years ago, jumped again in March of this year. His World War II jump is historic. It made Bush the only president to ever bail out of an airplane and the only president whose crew mates were sent careening into the ocean because their pilot had abandoned the aircraft.

Accompanied by eight Golden Knights from the Army Precision Parachuting Team and a civilian from the U.S. Parachute Association, Bush's second jump was less eventful and historic. After leaping from a civilian twin-engine airplane at 12,500 feet with two jump masters holding onto his harness, Bush fell until he deployed his parachute at 4,500 feet.

A half a dozen people--including his wife Barbara--rushed to help cushion his landing. Medical emergency personnel were also standing by on the ground. Bush landed about 40 yards from his target at the Army's Yuma Proving Ground, the sprawling base where the Golden Knights train eight weeks a year.

When the 72-year-old former chief executive was asked how he felt, he gave a thumbs up. "It was wonderful. I'm a new man--and I go home exhilarated," he said. "There's a lot of things about my previous incarnation that I do not miss, but I do miss the military," Bush later told base employees.

Prior to the jump, Jim McGrath, Bush's assistant, had said "The reasons behind this [the jump] are strictly personal, . . . It has to do with World War II."

Those cryptic remarks give rise to speculation that Bush may have been, as The London Times put it, "Trying to exorcise demons from his earlier jump, the circumstances of which flared up into controversy during Bush's presidential campaign.

In a 1987 account of the World War II incident, which differed from his earlier versions, Bush told about the incident on television. He claimed that during a bombing run against a Japanese radio installation on ChiChi Island, his plane was hit and engulfed in flames and that he ordered his crew to bail out. He said one did, but his parachute failed. Bush claimed the other crewman did not answer the intercom, so he assumed that the crewman was critically wounded or dead.

Bush, who was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for action prior to the crash, said that even though the plane was in flames, he managed to fly it on to the target and drop his bombs before he bailed out. Bush admitted, however, that in his rush to get out of the Avenger, he pulled the parachute rip cord too quickly and was gashed on his forehead when he hit the tail of the plane.

Bush's Betrayal

Chester Mierzejewski, an old war buddy of Bush, who said he was angered by the "false assertions" made by candidate Bush when describing the incident, gave a different account.

After 44 years of silence, Mierzejewski, who also was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, told the New York Post that Bush had abandoned his crew to death when there was another choice.

He said he was approximately 100 feet in front of Bush's plane as the turret gunner for Squadron Commander Douglas Melvin's plane, "so close he could see in the cockpit" of Bush's bomber. Mierzejewski's close wartime buddy was one of the two crew members in Bush's plane.

According to Mierzejewski, the squadron was in a tight-formation bombing raid against a Japanese radio installation on an island reported to be heavily fortified. He saw "a puff of smoke" come from Bush's plane which quickly disappeared and was certain only one man parachuted from the plane and that it was Bush, the pilot.

Mierzejewski said the Avenger torpedo bomber was engineered so that it could successfully crash land on water and that Bush doomed his own crew by bailing out and leaving the bomber out of control.

Other World War II veterans also expressed concern about Bush parachuting out of the aircraft. "He had a moral obligation to put that plane in the water in an emergency landing," Robert Flood, a former B-17 bombardier told the press. "He violated the primary rule for a captain of a multi-crew aircraft: The pilot never leaves the airplane with anybody in it."

Pete Brandon, a Marine Corps Avenger pilot, who also served in the South Pacific, said an Avenger pilot had two choices: Set the plane down in the water or hold it steady until the two crewmen could prepare to jump.

"In an Avenger, only the pilot wore a parachute," Brandon said. "The two crewmen wore harnesses. If the order came to bail out, they had to take chest parachutes from a shelf and strap them on - and bail out. The Avenger was very unstable. The pilot had to be at the controls the whole time or it would go right over on its back."

Steve Hart, then Vice President Press Secretary, described Mierzejewski's account as absurd. Hart said, "The Vice President has told us time and time again what happened that day. To suggest that the account is inaccurate is absurd."

What is absurd is the conflicting or missing reports of exactly what happened to Bush's two crew members. According to the Post, the intelligence report on the loss of Bush's plane in September, 1944 notes that it had become "standard doctrine" for VT 51, Bush's bomber squadron, "to make bombing runs on targets near water so as to retire over the water. This puts pilot and crew in position for water rescue in event of forced landing . . . "

The same document reports, without attribution, that "smoke and flame" engulfed Bush's engine, and that "Bush and one other person were seen to bail out. The chute of the other person who bailed out did not open."

The report was signed by Melvin and an intelligence officer, Lt. Martin E. Kilpatrick. Contrary to normal military procedure, the report was not dated and Navy archives were unable to supply a subsequently completed report.

Gunner Lawrence Mueller, who lives in Milwaukee, flew on the ChiChi Jima mission. When asked who had the best view, he replied unhesitatingly: "The turret gunner in Melvin's plane."

Mueller's recollections, jogged by a log book that he kept, support Mierzejewski's account. And it was noted that Bush's plane was the only one from the squadron that did not return. Mueller told the Post, "No parachute was sighted except Bush's when the plane went down." He also said no one mentioned a fire engulfing Bush's plane or he would have noted it in the log book.

The Finback, the sub which picked up Bush from his raft in the water, made no report of a fire on Bush's plane, but did comment on his crew: "Bush stated that he failed to see his crew's parachutes and believed they had jumped when the plane was still over ChiChi Jima, or they had gone down with the plane."

About six hours later, the Finback picked up another pilot, James W. Beckman, from the USS Enterprise, who stated that it was known that only one man had parachuted from Bush's plane. "This decided us to discontinue any further search of that area . . ."

Although the heart of Bush's story about the incident remains the same, Mierzejewski is adamant Bush's account is not the truth and blames Bush for the abandonment and deaths of both men.

"I think he could have saved those lives, if they were alive. I don't know that they were, but at least they had a chance if he had attempted a water landing," Mierzejewski said.
