Rumsfeld/Pentagon Builds the American Schutzstaffel and American Waffen-SS

comment: Building the American Schutzstaffel and American Waffen-SS, three points

1. POSSE COMMUTATUS EFFECTIVELY DEAD IN THIS
ARRANGEMENT BY PENTAGON MILITARY TAKING ON "EXTRA-LEGAL POLICE ACTIONS" WITHIN THE USA.

2. ONCE EUPHEMISTIC SEPRARATION BETWEEN CIVIL AND MILITARY IN INTELLIGENCE, GONE: PENTAGON "STRATEGIC SUPPORT BRANCH" SUPPLANTS CIA AND KEEPS ITS ACTIVITIES SECRET FROM CIA, CIA BUDGET CUTS/PURGES FOR DISAGREEING WITH PRE-EMPTIVE WAR ON IRAQ THAT WAS WITHOUT ANY JUSTIFICATION

3. U.S. MILITARY, INQUISITION STYLE, INSTEAD OF CONSTITUTIONAL STYLE: all this headed by Christian Zionist fundamentalist Gen. Boykin who calls the U.S. Army "the house of God" and Islamic insurgents "agents of Satan." He warned Muslims, "my God is bigger than your god, which is an idol."

Are their going to be special black SS uniforms?
three points:
----------------------------

1. former military intelligence analyst William Arkin revealed a hitherto
unknown directive, with the Orwellian name "JCS Conplan 0300-97,"
authorizing the Pentagon to employ special, ultra-secret "anti-terrorist"
military units on American soil for what the author claims are
"extra-legal missions." POSSE COMMUTATUS EFFECTIVELY DEAD IN THIS
ARRANGEMENT: In other words, using U.S. military soldiers to kill or
arrest Americans, acts that have been illegal since the U.S. Civil War.


2. EUPHEMISTIC SEPRARATION BETWEEN CIVIL AND MILITARY IN
INTELLIGENCE GONE, PENTAGON "STRATEGIC SUPPORT BRANCH" SUPPLANTS CIA:
Instead of being fired for the grotesque military-political fiasco in Iraq
and the shameful torture scandals, Rumsfeld has just managed to create a
new, Pentagon spy/special ops organization, blandly named "Strategic
Support Branch," that will replace or duplicate many of the CIA's tasks.
The CIA has been sent to the doghouse. Too many CIA veterans criticized or
contradicted Bush's and Cheney's phony claims over Iraq and terrorism. So
Bush has imposed a new, yes-man director on the agency [Bush Senior's old
drug trade related CIA asset and secret society member Porter Goss (Book
and Snake, at Yale--  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_and_snake ),
slashed its budgets, purged its senior officers, and downgraded CIA to
third-class status. Rumsfeld's new, massively funded SSB will become the
Pentagon's CIA, complete with commando units, spies, mercenary forces,
intelligence gathering and analysis, and a direct line to the White House.
The Pentagon has just effectively taken over the spy business. Rumsfeld
has...used terrorism hysteria to wrest control of intelligence...make
Pentagon supreme in Washington's bureaucratic power struggles. The
Pentagon's new spy arm will be largely excluded from Congressional
oversight or media examination. Its special operations teams will roam the
globe, all under cover of "deep black" missions of which no records will
be kept, and no questions asked.

***Pentagon's new special forces will be able to run operations of which
the CIA knows nothing [or Congress.]*** [The German Reich's SS was run
this way by Himmler, in his attempts to set up an autonomous SS
state separate from the Reich which connected the military industrial
materiel corporations, crack troops, and scientific personnel who set out
the conquer the world...]

3. U.S. MILITARY, INQUISITION STYLE, INSTEAD OF CONSTITUTIONAL STYLE:
Equally worrying, the Pentagon's new special-ops units are headed up by
notorious religious fanatic, Lt. Gen. William Boykin, who calls the U.S.
Army "the house of God" and Islamic insurgents "agents of Satan." He
warned Muslims, "my God is bigger than your god, which is an idol."

Paranoia Grips Bush Cabal
By Eric Margolis
Contributing Foreign Editor
Toronto Sun
2-7-2005


The film Seven Days In May is one of my all-time favourites. The gripping
1964 drama, starring Burt Lancaster, depicts an attempted coup by far
rightists in Washington using a top-secret Pentagon anti-terrorist unit
called something like "Contelinpro."

Life imitates art. This week, former military intelligence analyst William
Arkin revealed a hitherto unknown directive, with the Orwellian name "JCS
Conplan 0300-97," authorizing the Pentagon to employ special, ultra-secret
"anti-terrorist" military units on American soil for what the author
claims are "extra-legal missions."

In other words, using U.S. soldiers to kill or arrest Americans, acts that
have been illegal since the U.S. Civil War.

This frightening news comes as Washington is gripped by reborn,
Cold-War-style paranoia, ominous threats of war against Iran from the real
president, Dick Cheney, and a titanic bureaucratic battle just won by
Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Instead of being fired for the grotesque military-political fiasco in Iraq
and the shameful torture scandals, Rumsfeld has just managed to create a
new, Pentagon spy/special ops organization, blandly named "Strategic
Support Branch," that will replace or duplicate many of the CIA's tasks.

The CIA has been sent to the doghouse. Too many CIA veterans criticized or
contradicted Bush's and Cheney's phony claims over Iraq and terrorism. So
Bush has imposed a new, yes-man director on the agency, slashed its
budgets, purged its senior officers, and downgraded CIA to third-class
status.

Rumsfeld's new, massively funded SSB will become the Pentagon's CIA,
complete with commando units, spies, mercenary forces, intelligence
gathering and analysis, and a direct line to the White House. The Pentagon
has just effectively taken over the spy business.

Used terrorism hysteria

Mind you, the Pentagon and its Defence Intelligence Agency have been
deeply involved in intelligence around the globe for 50 years. U.S. Army
intelligence and its covert sub-branches have long conducted "black ops,"
including missions in the U.S. as well as assassinations and sabotage
abroad. The Pentagon consumes three-quarters of the total U.S.
intelligence budget.

Rumsfeld has skillfully used terrorism hysteria to wrest control of
intelligence and make the Pentagon supreme in Washington's bureaucratic
power struggles.

The Pentagon's new spy arm will be largely excluded from Congressional
oversight or media examination. Its special operations teams will roam the
globe, all under cover of "deep black" missions of which no records will
be kept, and no questions asked.

Equally worrying, the Pentagon's new special-ops units are headed up by
notorious religious fanatic, Lt. Gen. William Boykin, who calls the U.S.
Army "the house of God" and Islamic insurgents "agents of Satan." He
warned Muslims, "my God is bigger than your god, which is an idol."

Boykin's command will now dispatch post-modern Christian crusaders to
cleanse the world of Satanic Muslims and other miscreants. The Pentagon's
new special forces will be able to run operations of which the CIA knows
nothing.

The 9/11 Commission called for improved intra-agency co-operation and data
sharing -- instead, the U.S. will get far less co-operation, as the
Pentagon goes its own, secret way.

Now, George W. Bush, who clearly believes he holds the mandate of heaven
after being re-[s]elected by the less mentally active half of American
voters [and the highly intelligent unauditable vote machine corporate
owners who lean Republican/Bush], has decided to "unleash" special forces
and all sorts of irregular units, including mercenaries, uniformed bounty
hunters, and mutants sporting t-shirts proclaiming "kill 'em all, let God
sort 'em out." These militarized thugs and video arcade Rambos are sure to
run amok, dragging America's once good name ever deeper into the mud.

We have evidently learned nothing from the wars in Indochina and Central
America.

Have we reached Seven Days in May?

Not yet, but the second Bush administration has been taking dangerous
steps that continue to curtail personal rights, further emasculate the
supine, cowardly U.S. Congress, and empower ideological or religious
extremists and shadowy agencies with unrestrained powers that endanger
Americans at home, and all abroad suspected of troubling the Pax [or War]
Americana.

Schutzstaffel
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

For other uses of the abbreviation SS, see SS (disambiguation)

The Schutzstaffel (Protective Squadron), or SS, was a large paramilitary
organization that belonged to the Nazi party. The Nazis regarded the SS as
an elite unit, based on the Praetorian Guard, with all SS personnel
selected on racial and ideological grounds. [They even had special
eugenic breeding colonies for impregnating volunteer women with the
'male SS elite genes' for the future children. cite: _Gods and Beasts: the Nazis and the Occcult_] The SS was distinguished from other branches of the German military, Nazi Party, and German state by their own SS ranks, SS unit insignia, and SS uniforms. Their performance as a fighting unit, called the Waffen-SS, was to prove as highly distinguished as, and in many cases more distinguished than the German army, the Wehrmacht. The SS were, however, notorious for their participation in enforcing Nazi policies which were latest found to constitute war crimes or crimes against humanity. These acts were mainly carried out by the departments that comprised the
Reichssicherheitshauptamt (Reich Security Head Office), such as the
Gestapo, the Sicherheitsdienst (SD) and the Einsatzgruppen, in addition to
the department overseeing concentration and extermination camps.

Where Are They? 07.Feb.2005 15:09

These guys won't be in spiffy black uniforms, though. They'll be wearing business suits.

The operation/base code name in Seven Days in May was "ECOMCON," for Emergency Command and Control, not very much like "Contelinpro."

Bad choice for Rumsfeld - although his hairline is spot on with Weich's - because the field marshal dodged the Nuremberg Trials, on a charge of war crimes perpetrated in the Balkans against the partisans, when he was severed from the case for medical reasons. Apparently, he was never brought to trial. Von Rummy should not be as fortunate.

Didn't someone by the name of DeVoy already warn us of this? 07.Feb.2005 15:35

Good Listener

Over the past three years, I have attempted to bring this news to Americans. In exchange for my efforts I have been targeted by the very program I have sought to expose. It has been difficult enough enduring the DIA's harassment without harassment coming from those whom one would think sympathetic to my message, but unfortunately not all is at it seems in dissident America. I cite, for example, Boston IndyMedia, New York IndyMedia, DC IndyMedia, and Kansas City IndyMedia as perfect examples of COINTELPRO dupes.

Boston IndyMedia has attempted to portray the DIA's war on me as the "DeVoy/KOBE war." DC IndyMedia continually claims that I provide no evidence of my claims, calling for a standard on this issue far stricter that it does on any other issue. NYC IndyMedia parrots the DIA's line, that these claims are paranoid.

However, let me lay them out once again so that even the least intelligent members of the Boston, DC, and NYC IndyMedia collectives will understand them. We will begin with a list of facts.

(1) Until May of 2002 I was the director of the programming department at Cycorp, a defense contractor in Austin, Texas.

(2) I worked on various projects, for Cycorp, which belonged to John Poindexter's Information Awareness Office.

(3) I met twice with John Poindexter at the Information Warfare Office of Syntek in Washington, D.C.

(4) While attending a management meeting at Cycorp, the President of the corporation presented to us an offer for a contract with the Defense Intelligence Agency. The project entailed setting up a team of employees to wage cyber warfare against websites deemed to belong to "enemies of the state." These enemies were domestic.

(5) I vociferously opposed the project and was ensured that we would not pursue it.

(6) I was immediately harassed for being an anarchist and an online harassment program against me began. That project has been traced back to Cycorp. This is not speculation. I provide proof below.

(7) I was removed from Cycorp shortly thereafter, following a visit from two agents of the Defense Intelligence Agency. I was the first person they met at Cycorp. They asked me pointedly if "I liked my job at Cycorp" and then they met with Douglas B. Lenat (president of Cycorp) and Mary Shepherd.

(8) Once I left Cycorp, I traced much of the harassment back to military IP addresses. I filed a complaint with the Defense Intelligence Agency. They assigned a case number and told me they were investigating it. I never heard back from them.

(9) The harassers targeting me put up a website and called it "KOBEHQ." They openly declared that they had military personnel assisting them. In addition to harassing me, they organized randomly recruited individuals, attracted to their anti-Muslim stance and their pornography to assist in waging cyber warfare on Islamic and Arab forums. Their stated goal was to cause all such forums to shut down or to require user registration. Their goal was to stop all anonymous posting on Islamic and Arab forums within the United States.

(10) After largely succeeding at the above goal, they next targeted Anarchists. They targeted Sherman Austin of Raise the Fist and put him in jail.

(11) They targeted my anarchist websites and forced me, through the overhead of harassment, to shut them down.

(12) They harassed various other anarchists whom I shall refrain from naming at the moment and anarchist list servers.

(13) Next, they attacked IndyMedias nationwide. Boston IMC immediately capitulated to their demands. Specifically, to delete anything I published. Boston IMC assisted them in harassing my employers by not removing calls by the DIA to harass my employers. NYC IMC and DC IMC have worked hand in hand to meet the requests of the DIA's KOBEHQ project.

I warned everyone, as well as I could, at the beginning that KOBEHQ's attacks on Muslims would be followed by attacks on other groups. When they attacked Anarchists, I warned that they would expand to attack others. They now claim to have shut down various IMC websites. Boston IMC continues to cooperate with them.

Personally, I think the activist community should be ashamed of not rising to the occasion to defend Islamic and Arab websites. You have allowed the fascist genie out of the bottle and it has gained strength. You are next on their list.
