9.11 investigation

9-11: CSIS (Center for Strategic & Int'l Studies) as Bush's state terror planning organ

CSIS did 9-11 (with a large coterie of helpers and other organizations of course).

There are so many links to them. Please distribute this widely.

So learn who did 9-11, one day before the fake election...I accuse CSIS of plotting out 9-11 events for their political goals...

Someone had posted a corp media post from MSNBC, here:

Not 377 but 250,000 Tons if Explosives Missing

Which quoted someone from CSIS: ""There is something truly absurd about focusing on 377 tons," said Anthony Cordesman, a defense analyst and Iraq expert with the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies." This is like asking the Bush Administration what it thinks of the Bush Administrations negligence. Correct that: this IS asking the Bush Administration what it thinks of itself. Follow below:


Instead, I would say that there is something absurb about avoiding media focus on CSIS itself with regards to 9-11. This is for three rationales; their staff has a TRIPLE PART in 9-11 pre-planning, post-cover-up actions, and ongoing war profiteering. It's memberships hit all three bells. They are a major spider in this state terror 9-11 web. CSIS in my opinion is likely the coordinating committee for everything that went down on 9-11.

The Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS)

1. is a private organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. According to its web site, it has "been dedicated to providing world leaders with strategic insights on — and policy solutions..."

2. ... "one of those ephemeral constellations into which the luminaries of the American political establishment frequently arrange themselves in order to encourage policy to navigate by their lights: Madeleine K. Albright, Harold Brown, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Frank Charles Carlucci III, Warren Christopher, William Sebastian Cohen, Bob Dole, Lawrence Sidney Eagleburger, Stuart Eizenstat, Alexander Haig, Lee H. Hamilton, John Hamre, Sam Nunn, Paul O'Neill, Charles S. Robb, William Roth, and James Rodney Schlesinger. That makes four former Secretaries of State, one former National Security Adviser, two former Secretaries for Defense, a former Secretary of the Treasury, a former Secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development [the PROMIS fraud and thefts start there; about this see summaries in the books about PROMIS in Bushwhacked by Uri Dobwenko, additionally in the book The Octopus: The Secret Government and the Death of Danny Casolaro; and additionally a fine chapter about PROMIS in From the Wildernesses/Michael Ruppert's Crossing the Rubicon], a former Director of the CIA, and three Senators";

3. ... signatories to a May 2003 Declaration proposing that "the states of the European Union, which are among the richest and most powerful states in the world, should invite US government officials to attend their highest-level legislative and policy-making meetings [or else!], in order that these officials can ensure that the Europeans do not pursue policies which are independent of, or disapproved by, the American government."[2]


DEFINITELY MISTRUST everything from the Center for Strategic and International Studies. These are the people and organizations of CSIS. These are additionally the people and organizations involved in the TRIPLE PART of 9-11 mentioned above. I accuse CSIS of plotting out 9-11 events for their political goals:

[1] are connected to formulating, pre-9-11, what "Homeland Security" would look like.
[2] are connected to all other major suspects/organizations involved in 9-11 war profiteering.
[3] are currently multiple members of the Bush Administration and the neocon members of the previous Clinton who focused on oil, pre-emptive war, and Iraq.


When you listen to CSIS you are listening to these people and organizations that are connected to it:

1. CHEVRONTEXACO (CHEVRON AND TEXACO are two pieces of ex-Rockefeller Standard Oil; split up in the early 20th century because they were a monopoly, are actually reassembled, baldly, days after 9-11; they actually started to merge in talks only months before 9-11); CHEVRONTEXACO of course is connected to CONDOLEEZZA RICE; both CHEVRON AND TEXACO had oil in Kuwait, Saudi, and eyed Iraq;

2. Madeleine Korbel Albright, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and former Secretary of State, is considered to be a "neo-con" (neo-conservative). She is reputed to be a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and she is a member of the Board at the Aspen Institute. Albright moves out as Rice goes in to the same position. Both Rice and Albright studied the same academic specializations, and under the exact same teacher, who was Albrights father!); as Albright had Clinton National Security Council issues and Iraq connections, so does Rice. Thus from Albright to Rice: hardly any change; Albright studied at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University just like another board member of CSIS did. Dr. Albright serves on the Board of Directors of the New York Stock Exchange--which probably explains why they were so uncurious about 9-11 insider trading linked back to CIA connected banks, despite originally starting an investigation of their own which was later stopped. 12 May 1996: Lesley Stahl at "60 Minutes" interview, speaking of US sanctions against Iraq: "We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And -- and you know, is the price worth it?" Madeleine Albright: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price -- we think the price is worth it."

3. MITRE connections; there are at least two known MITRE/CSIS overlaps in personnel; background on MITRE: Warren Buffett involved in MITRE, and he was at the NORAD base on 9-11 likely with his MITRE flight control technology expertise; Warren Buffett, Lord Rothschild, and Arnold Schwartzenegger meet for secret meetings in England in 2002 at the Rothschild estate before Schwarzenegger implanted into California governorship; Arnold stops suit against Bush connected Enron; suit for 8 billion dollars or more I believe. Buffett likely involved in 9-11 commandeering planes from the NORAD base where he was in Omaha, Nebraska military base; he was there on 9-11 and directing them or within earshot if something goes awry); 2 MITRE/CSIS connections: HAMRE (head of CSIS, Hamre, is a trustee of MITRE, and CSIS's Robb, serves on MITRE's Board of Trustees.

4. DOV ZAKHEIM, ex-Comptroller (head financial officer) of the Pentagon, placed there months before 9-11--left the position in 2004; ZAKHEIM likely has connections to the existing CEO of CSIS, Hamre; Zakheim and Hamre careers, both in terms of government organizations inhabited as well as times of appointments have highly overlapped; both had similar positions in government during the same periods or right after each other. Zakheim is without CSIS connections at least on the surface it seems, though he may have John J. Hamre connections.

5. John J. Hamre becomes "CEO"/head of CSIS, only from right before 9-11, from January 2000; Zakheim moved into his pentagon Undersecretary position months before 9-11 (this is the same period that HAMRE was in years before); Hamre, of course is a trustee of MITRE: "[Here's where he would have overlapped with ZAKHEIM: From 1978 to 1984, Dr. Hamre served in the Congressional Budget Office, where he became its deputy assistant director for national security and international affairs." This would place him in association with DOV ZAKHEIM.

6. HALLIBURTON (CSIS/Halliburton overlaps: Ann Armstrong; Ann Armstrong was involed in the HART-RUDMAN COMMISSION; she was the Commissioner on the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century / Hart-Rudman Commission; This was the planning document which formulated the ideas of Homeland Security well before 9-11. She's on Hallburton and CSIS boards, thus friend of Cheney (CEO, Halliburton, 1995-2000) actually was giving the Bush Administration the plan for Homeland Security in March 2001, months before 9-11. Cheney put in 'charge' of this, according to Bush. Bushs immediately afterwards appoints Cheney as head of FEMA for all 'national emergencies'. It is unknown if that is part of the Hart-Rudman plan officially, or whether (I think it is likely) this was something that was organized on the side through CSIS brainstorming.

7. CARLUCCI (Carlyle Corporation); Carlucci is involved in both Bush family connected war profiteering Carlyle Corporation (and the largest private defense profiteering corporation, United Defense Industries, of which he is CEO--which is a Carlyle acquisition that goes public and gets hundreds of millions of dollars of instant profit immediately after its first IPO which comes after 9-11); Carlucci is with CSIS as well.

8. VICE CHAIR of the WHITEWASH OF THE 9-11 COMMISSON, LEE HAMILTON is in CSIS! Lee Hamilton is associated with CSIS.

9. AND Paul O'Neill, who served as Secretary of the Treasury in the Bush Administration until forced to resign in December, 2002. He has CSIS connections.

10. Charles S. Robb: (a) former President Lyndon B. Johnson's son-in-law; During his tenure in Congress, Senator Robb became the only member ever to serve simultaneously on all three national security committees (Armed Services, Intelligence, and Foreign Relations). He also served on the Finance, Commerce, and Budget Committees as well as the Joint Economic Committee and the Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs. In addition to serving as Chairman or Ranking Member of several subcommittees, he served as Chairman of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee and as Deputy Democratic Whip for the South; (b) CSIS's Robb currently serves on MITRE's Board of Trustees, just like CSIS's Hamre sits on MITRE's Board of Trustees.



I thought you would want to know about CSIS.

people of interest on CSIS trustees & 'committee on present danger' connect 01.Nov.2004 13:06


[11] David Abshire, co founder of CSIS in 1962. According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) web site, David M. Abshire is president of the Center for the Study of the Presidency, and vice chairman of the board of the bipartisan Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C. and chairman of its Capital Development Committee. He was its cofounder in 1962 and served as its chief executive for many years." "David Abshire is a 1951 graduate of West Point and later received his doctorate in history from Georgetown University, where for many years he was an adjunct professor at its School of Foreign Service. "He served as Assistant Secretary of State in the early 1970's and later as chairman of the U.S. Board of International Broadcasting. He was a member of the Murphy Commission on the Organization of the Government, the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board, and the President's Task Force on U.S. Government International Broadcasting.

CSIS'ites COMES IN WITH REAGAN/BUSH LEAGUE SECRET GOVERNMENT IN 1980:***During the transition of government in 1980, Dr. Abshire was asked by President-elect Ronald Reagan to head the National Security Group, which included the State and Defense Departments, the U.S. Information Agency, and the Central Intelligence Agency. He has also served on the advisory board of the Naval War College and on the executive panel of the Chief of Naval Operations. "More recently (1983-1987), he was ambassador to NATO ..."***

[12] SAN DIEGO 'FALSE FLAG' LINKS? PERHAPS SOMEONE COULD RESEARCH CONNECTIONS BETWEEN HAROLD BROWN, SAN DIEGO, AND THE SAN DIEGO 'WING' OF THE PEOPLE OF IRAN'S Shah/SAUDI ARABIA THERE. Harold Brown "of San Diego, California and Washington, D.C., served as Secretary of Defense from January 20, 1977 through January 20, 1981, having previously served as Secretary of the Air Force, Director of Defense Research & Engineering, and President of the California Institute of Technology." In 1992, Brown joined the Center for Strategic and International Studies. Previously, he was Chairman of the Foreign Policy Institute at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University. Brown has been a partner in the New York firm of ***Warburg, Pincus & Co.***.[1]

[13] Zbigniew Brzezinski, the geopolitical 'chessmaster' himself, is a trustee of CSIS.

[14] ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW WHEN CSIS ALBRIGHT GOES OUT UNDER CLINTON, RICE GOES IN WITHOUT ANY SUBSTANCE OF CHANGE IN STAFFING, ACTUALLY: THE SAME WITH COHEN: William Sebastian Cohen, a Rhodes Scholar, is considered to be a "neo-con" (neo-conservative) and believed to be a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Cohen served as Secretary of Defense during the William Jefferson Clinton administration (97-01). Formerly a U.S. Senator from Maine, Cohen has ties to the intelligence community, the Brookings Institute, and the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University.

[15] Carla Anderson Hills, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hills & Company International Consultants. [1][2] Hills is considered to be a top U.S. trade negotiator and served as U.S. Trade Representative from 1989 to 1993 (President George Herbert Walker Bush). She is currently chairman of the National Committee on United States-China Relations. She formerly served as Secretary at HUD.

[16] Ray L. Hunt [SECOND HALLIBURTON/CSIS OVERLAP!] Ray Lee Hunt is a "Dallas businessman whose association with Hunt Oil Company began in 1958 as a summer employee in the oil fields. He was educated at Southern Methodist University (SMU) and received a degree in economics in June 1965. While at SMU, he was designated a University Scholar, served on the student senate, received the Outstanding Business Student Award and was president of his fraternity, Phi Delta Theta.[1] Hunt now serves as Chairman of the Board, President, and CEO of Hunt Consolidated, Inc.; Chairman of the Board and CEO of Hunt Oil Company; and Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer and President, RRH Corporation. He has been Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Hunt Private Equity Group since its inception in 1990. [2] Hunt was appointed in October 2001 by President George Walker Bush to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board.[3] Hunt joined the Halliburton Company Board in 1998. He is Chairman of the Compensation Committee and member of the Audit and the Management Oversight Committees. He also serves as a member of the boards of directors of PepsiCo, Inc., King Ranch, Inc., Electronic Data Systems Corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, and Security Capital Group Incorporated.[4][5] [6] Hunt currently serves as a Member of the Board of Trustees of the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C.; the Board of Trustess for the [George Bush Presidential Library Foundation George Bush Presidential Library Foundation; the Board of Advisors for the Maguire Energy Institute at SMU Cox School of Business; the Board of Directors of the Texas Research League; the executive committee of the Southwestern Medical Foundation in Dallas; and the Board of Trustees of Southern Methodist University.[7] Hunt has served as chairman of the National Petroleum Council in Washington, D.C. (an industry advisory organization for the Secretary of Energy) and served as its chairman from June 1991 to July 1994. In 1980-81 he served as president of the Domestic Petroleum Council [8] He is currently a member of the board of directors of the American Petroleum Institute. He also has served as president of the Dallas Petroleum Club.[9] In 1987, Hunt was given The Order of Marib by the government of the Republic of Yemen. He is the only non-Yemeni ever to be so designated.[10]

[17] YET A THIRD CSIS MEMBER AS NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER LEVEL APPOINTMENTS, AND OF COURSE HENRY THE K WAS BUSH'S FIRST CHOICE FOR THE 9-11 COMMISSION COVER-UP: Kissinger was appointed Assistant for National Security Affairs by Richard M. Nixon. He served as Secretary of State under both Gerald R. Ford and James Earl Carter, Jr. (September 22, 1973-January 20, 1977), while still holding the position of Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs (1969-1975).[9] Kissinger is believed to be a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group. He has been identifed as a protege of Nelson A. Rockefeller. Kissinger has also been labeled a terrorist [14]: Henry Kissinger was one of the first to react to the 9-11 HITS IN PRINT. "Those who provide support, financing, and inspiration to terrorists are as guilty as the terrorists themselves," he intoned, words that Son Bush would repeat hours later. If that's how it is, the urgent need right now is to bomb Kissinger. He is guilty of many more crimes than bin Laden or any terrorist in the world. And in many more countries. He provided "support, financing, and inspiration" to state terror in Indonesia, Cambodia, Iran, South Africa, Bangladesh, and all the South American countries that suffered the dirty war of Plan Condor.

[18] THE SECOND HART-RUDMAN PRE-PLANNING CONNECTION: ARMSTRONG AND SCHLESINGER BOTH OF CSIS AND HART-RUDMAN, IS A PRIVATE WAR PROFITEER IN THE PENTAGON'S CIVILIAN 'DEFENSE POLICY BOARD'; THE THIRD MITRE CONNECTION: SCHLESINGER, HAMRE, AND ROBB ALL THREE MITRE/CSIS!

Chairman, Pacific Forum at Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) [I THINK SCROWCROFT HAS BIOPORT/CARLYLE CONNECTIONS, CORRECT?]

[20] CSIS, PNAC, CIA, AND BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON! R. James Woolsey, a former director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, is Vice President at Booz Allen & Hamilton. [ZAKHIEM GOES TO WORK FOR BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON AFTER HE LEAVES AS EX-PENTAGON COMPTROLLER.] Woolsey is one of the signers of the January 26, 1998, Project for the New American Century (PNAC) letter sent to President William Jefferson Clinton.[2] He was also one of the signers of another PNAC document, Statement on Post-War Iraq, on March 19, 2003. As Vice President of Booz Allen & Hamilton, he oversees the corporation that is the lead contractor for the Total Information Awareness program. [PROMIS] Speaking to a group of college students on April 2, 2003, former CIA Director Woolsey revealed, "...the United States is engaged in World War IV, and that it could continue for years." Woolsey described the Cold War as the third world war. He then said "This fourth world war, I think, will last considerably longer than either World Wars I or II did for us. AND HE WAS ATTEMPTING TO THROW THE 9-11 BLAME ON IRAQ WITHOUT ANY EVIDENCE IMMEDIATELY AFTER 9-11 HITS: When James Woolsey, the former C.I.A. director and current Pentagon adviser, appeared on "Nightline" five days after 9/11 and suggested that America had to strike Iraq for sponsoring terrorism, Ted Koppel rebutted: "Nobody right now is suggesting that Iraq had anything to do with this. In fact, quite the contrary." Mr. Woolsey replied: "I don't think it matters. I don't think it matters."


Because so many people are connected to both CSIS and the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University, here's a bit of background on them:

Paul H. Nitze was the author of "NSC-68 (1950), and of the Gaither Report (1957)." He served as assistant secretary of defense for John F. Kennedy. "In the 1970s Nitze organized the ***Committee on the Present Danger, an anti-detente group, many of whose members joined the Ronald Reagan Administration.***

1950: The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University became a division of Johns Hopkins University in 1950. "When SAIS opened, 15 students were enrolled. By 1963, SAIS outgrew its first quarters on Florida Avenue, Washington, D.C., and moved to one of its two present buildings on Massachusetts Avenue. By 1995, more than 8,600 men and women had graduated from SAIS. They are now working in 143 countries."

1951: NITZE'S CPD launched a three-month scare campaign over the NBC network. Every Sunday night thereafter the group used the Mutual Broadcasting System to talk to the nation about the 'present danger'...[this was used to pass the huge military buildup--sound familiar to post 9-11 media use?]

1970: IT REFORMED: "In the 1970s Nitze organized the ***Committee on the Present Danger, an anti-detente group, many of whose members joined the Ronald Reagan Administration.*** Led once again by Eugene V. Rostow and Nitze, members of the CPD regrouped for action.

Committee on the Present Danger

The Committee on the Present Danger (CPD) is a hawkish "advocacy organization" first founded in 1950 and re-formed in 1976 (sic) to push for larger defense budgets and arms buildups,...


It was designed as a 'citizen's lobby' to alert the nation to the [actually WALL STREET CREATED] THESIS Soviet 'present danger,' and the resultant "need" to adopt the ANTI-THESIS NSC-68 agenda....NSC-68 was a top secret National Security Council document written by Paul H. Nitze promoting a huge military build-up...attaining and maintaining U.S. military supremacy in the world. In 1951 the CPD launched a three-month scare campaign over the NBC network. Every Sunday night thereafter the group used the Mutual Broadcasting System to talk to the nation about the 'present danger'...[this was used to pass the huge military buildup; SOUND FAMILIAR TO THE CORPORATE MEDIA AFTER 9-11? and its the same people and organization for fifty years, so if they have a strategy that works, they use it once more.]

Members of the 2004 version of the Committee on the Present Danger include Senator Joseph I. Lieberman [who co-introduced FASCIST HOMELAND SECURITY BILL], former CIA director R. James Woolsey, Jr. [additionally of CSIS AND the 'COMMITTEE OF THE PRESENT DANGER', and BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON], and Reagan administration official and 1976 Committee founder Max M. Kampelman.[he's still there in other words.] [2] At the July 20 launching of the 2004 CPD, Lieberman and Senator Jon Kyl [WHO had BREAKFAST MEETING on 9-11-01 WITH 9-11 FALSE FLAG PAYMASTER PAKISTANI GEN. AMHOUD AHMAD (and FL Sen. Graham and now CIA Director Goss) in the Capitol Building] were identified as the honorary co-chairs. [ONCE MORE READ THAT:] At the July 20 launching of the 2004 CPD, Lieberman and Senator Jon Kyl were identified as the honorary co-chairs. [3] Other notable members listed on the CPD website include Laurie Mylroie, Norman Podhoretz [NEOCON; STRAUSSIAN], Frank Gaffney and other associates of the ***American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, [MOSSAD SPY RIDDLED] American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Boeing Company [nice to know that even a private commercial corporation Boeing sees fit to have a foreign policy strategy? did they HELPED OUT WITH 9-11 PLANES; this would be a motivational link if they did: they are Committee on the Present Danger supporter].***[4]


One day after the launch of the 2004 CPD, managing director Peter Hannaford resigned after it was reported that Hannaford, while working for his PR firm the Carmen Group, has lobbied [in the United States] on behalf of Austria's [fascist] Freedom Party, which is headed by right-wing nationalist Joerg Haider (Haider has been quoted as commending the "orderly employment policy" of the Nazi Third Reich government and paid a "solidarity visit" to Iraq dictator Saddam Hussein in 2002).

And I think it is fair to say that CPD approve of the Diebold/California coup of another born Austrian: the nazi-admirer Arnold Schwarzenegger who was appointed as California 'Governator'.

George H.W. Bush's Team B revitalizes a 'CPD II,': running US, 1976-2004-? 01.Nov.2004 13:25


The whole Christian Zionism alliance framework seems to have been born of these guys. Plus, this ties in with their leftist global revolutionary origins of the neo-cons.

The revitalization of the CPD grew out of an independent group called Team B. Team B was authorized in 1976 by President Gerald R. Ford and organized by then-CIA chief, George Herbert Walker Bush. The purpose of Team B was to develop an independent [i.e, different policy plan for] judgment of Soviet capabilities and intentions. Team B was headed by Richard Pipes and included Paul Nitze, Foy Kohler, William R. Van Cleave, Lt. Gen. Daniel O. Graham (ret.), Thomas Wolf of RAND Corporation and Gen. John Vogt, Jr. (ret.). Also a part of Team B were five officials still active in government: Maj. Gen. George Keegan, Brig. Gen. Jasper Welch, Paul Dundes Wolfowitz [WOLFIE!] of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, and Seymour Weiss of the State Department.

Team B was housed in the offices of the Coalition for a Democratic Majority.

"The political base for CPD II was in the Coalition for a Democratic Majority, a group formed in 1972 by the hard-line, anti-Soviet wing of the Senate, led by Sen. Henry M. Scoop Jackson. These conservative Democrats contended that communism was a great evil and that the U.S. had a moral obligation to eradicate it and foster democracy throughout the world.


The 193 individual members of the revitalized CPD comprise a who's who of the Democratic Party establishment and a cross-section of Republican leadership. Eventually, 13 of the 18 members of the Foreign Policy Task Force of the CDM, lead by Eugene V. Rostow, joined the CPD. Notable among them were Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, Leon Keyserling, Max M. Kampelman, Richard Shifter, and John P. Roche.


CPD II broadened its base considerably from the original group by including in its ranks top labor officials, Jewish liberals and neo-conservative intellectuals. It managed this feat by including in its ideology not only a strong anti-Soviet policy, but also one which promoted growth and expansion.

The CPD presented an alternative to the cooperative vision of empire put forth by the Trilateralists with an imperial, unilateral philosophy of power...

more on 1970's "Team B" & ongoing versions of "Committee on Present Danger" 29.Dec.2004 10:34

same fascist organizing group from 1950s-to the present

More on "Team B" under GHWB. Wolfowitz comes into it here as well. Full circle. Two entirely separate strands of research--one above, and one below--converge on Bush networks in Team B and the "Committee on the Present Danger" as a state terrorizing organization.

Seems that the networks that supported Nixonianism were ousted and the Bushite/Rummy/Wolfowitz/Cheneyites came in from early 1970s, and they have been using the same strategy on a neofascist global domination routine ever since. Commentary (without much discussion below, only rolling out the connections for a summary): Nearly took out Ford in 1976 in three assassination attempts (while GHW Bush was CIA Director), Nelson Rockefeller almost President, Bush connected to the Rockefellers and the Rockefeller Trilaterials (like Carter), Rockefellers made sure to own Democratic candidate instead (Carter, Trilaterial), Bush founds the Team B (mentioned above), puts Wolfowitz in it, sets up the beginnings of an idea of popularizing the alliances they want as "Christian Zionism" which is formulated by these people as well, rabid reactionary policies, racist policies, Bush inserts himself into Reagan campaign as VP, mere months after Reagan elected, Bush networks attempt to kill him off, tacit understanding reached, Bush Senior as "cloaked president" from 1981 to present (counting the Bush/CIA drug running connections to Clinton.). US goes from economically sound to intentionally undermined economically and financially, in the aim to switch debt and thus policy power to more international networks. Bush Senior comes in earlier since the information concerning his CIA organizational involvement in Houston, TX, in 1963 in the assassination of JFK and his liasion connections to the Miami based right-wing exiles/terrorists from Cuba--verified by FOIA information.


BBC Exposed Decades-Old Neocon Deceit on Cold War: Hyping Terror For Fun, Profit - & Power
18:15 Dec-28 (1 comment)

The most shocking dimensions of these twin deceits - that the same Bush connected people promulgated fears of fake terrorism from the 1970s to 9-11. THIRTY YEARS in a GLOBE-FULL OF PSYCHOLOGICALLY MANIPULATED PEOPLE BELIEVING A FAKE HISTORY DESIGNED BY EVIL AMERICAN ELITES. "Without fear, how could Americans be manipulated? [In the early 1970s,] Rumsfeld and Cheney began a concerted effort - first secretly and then openly - to undermine Nixon's treaty for peace and to rebuild the state of fear and, thus, reinstate the Cold War. And these two men - 1974 Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Ford Chief of Staff Dick Cheney - did this by claiming that the Soviets had secret weapons of mass destruction that the president didn't know about, that the CIA didn't know about, that nobody but them knew about. And, they said, because of those weapons, the US must redirect billions of dollars away from domestic programs and instead give the money to defense contractors for whom these two men would one day work."

. . .

According to this carefully researched and well-vetted BBC documentary, Richard Nixon, following in the steps of his mentor and former boss Dwight D. Eisenhower, believed it was possible to end the Cold War and eliminate fear from the national psyche. The nation need no longer be afraid of communism or the Soviet Union. Nixon worked out a truce with the Soviets, meeting their demands for safety as well as the US needs for security, and then announced to Americans that they need no longer be afraid. In 1972, President Richard Nixon returned from the Soviet Union with a treaty worked out by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the beginning of a process Kissinger called "détente."

On June 1, 1972, Nixon gave a speech in which he said, "Last Friday, in Moscow, we witnessed the beginning of the end of that era which began in 1945. With this step, we have enhanced the security of both nations. We have begun to reduce the level of fear, by reducing the causes of fear-for our two peoples, and for all peoples in the world." But Nixon left amid scandal and Ford came in, and Ford's Secretary of Defense (Donald Rumsfeld) and Chief of Staff (Dick Cheney) believed it was intolerable that Americans might no longer be bound by fear.

. . .

Rumsfeld and Cheney began a concerted effort - first secretly and then openly - to undermine Nixon's treaty for peace and to rebuild the state of fear and, thus, reinstate the Cold War. And these two men - 1974 Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and Ford Chief of Staff Dick Cheney - did this by claiming that the Soviets had secret weapons of mass destruction that the president didn't know about, that the CIA didn't know about, that nobody but them knew about. And, they said, because of those weapons, the US must redirect billions of dollars away from domestic programs and instead give the money to defense contractors for whom these two men would one day work.

The CIA strongly disagreed, calling Rumsfeld's position a "complete fiction" and pointing out that the Soviet Union was disintegrating from within, could barely afford to feed their own people, and would collapse within a decade or two if simply left alone. But Rumsfeld and Cheney wanted Americans to believe there was something nefarious going on, something we should be very afraid of. To this end, ****they convinced President Ford to appoint a commission including their old friend Paul Wolfowitz**** to prove that the Soviets were up to no good.

According to Curtis' BBC documentary, Wolfowitz's group, known as "Team B," came to the conclusion that the Soviets had developed several terrifying new weapons of mass destruction, featuring a nuclear-armed submarine fleet that used a sonar system that didn't depend on sound and was, thus, undetectable with our current technology. [This was exactly what the "Committee on the Present Danger did in the 1950s as well, as mentioned above in another comment.]

...[A]s Melvin Goodman, head of the CIA's Office of Soviet Affairs, 1976-87, noted in the BBC documentary,

"Rumsfeld won that very intense, intense political battle that was waged in Washington in 1975 and 1976. Now, as part of that battle, Rumsfeld and others, people such as Paul Wolfowitz, wanted to get into the CIA. And their mission was to create a much more severe view of the Soviet Union, Soviet intentions, Soviet views about fighting and winning a nuclear war."

Although Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld's assertions of powerful new Soviet WMDs were unproven - they said the lack of proof proved that undetectable weapons existed - they nonetheless used their charges to push for dramatic escalations in military spending to selected defense contractors, a process that continued through the Reagan administration.

But, trillions of dollars and years later, it was proven that they had been wrong all along, and the CIA had been right. Rumsfeld, Cheney, and Wolfowitz lied to America in the 1970s about Soviet WMDs.

neocons. . .[re]organized a group [from the 1950s that did the same thing] - The Committee on the Present Danger. . . .The Committee produced [fear propaganda] documentaries, publications, and provided guests for national talk shows and news reports. They worked hard to whip up fear and encourage increases in defense spending, particularly for sophisticated weapons systems offered by the defense contractors for whom neocons would later become lobbyists.

And they succeeded in recreating an atmosphere of fear in the United States, and making themselves and their defense contractor friends richer than most of the kingdoms of the world.
