Cheney/Halliburton sold Iran nuclear equip. in '04 to justify '05 Cheney planned attack

Still receiving a million dollars a year from the corporation, Cheney's Halliburton supplied the nuclear components to Iran in 2004 that neocon's are now screaming about as "justifying" (sic) their own empty "threat" that promotes pre-emptive war attacks in 2005. Note that a year later, it is Cheney's very hands on order to the Joint Chiefs of Staff to craft a "response to the next terror" that means AUTOMATIC targeting of Iran regardless of where the source of terror comes from! Additional notes from below: FOUR STAR GENERAL BYRNES REFUSES TO GO ALONG WITH THE NORTHCOM NUCLEAR TERROR DRILL THAT WAS TO 'GO LIVE', ONCE IT WAS SHIFTED TO BE UNDER HIS JURISDICTION AT HIS FT. MONROE, VA, BASE ; SO, NEOCON TERRORISTS IN PENTAGON FIRE BYRNES, HE'S REPLACED BY RUMSFELD CRONY --- Neocons still PLANNING FOR TERROR to kick off Iran attack: All Army Leaves has been cancelled after September 7, 2005, right as Bush's "33 day vacation" closes is likely when they pre-plan for the attack to kick off --- CNN already 'in training' to report FROM NORTHCOM to manipulate the truth and misguide the immediate public reaction to disguise neocon's NORTHCOM/PENTAGON THAT SET OFF next state terror hit on their OWN MOBILIZATION SCHEDULE.

More information on Gen. Byrnes, and another interesting rub about how Cheney's Halliburon supplied the nuclear components to Iran in 2004, that the neocon's are now screaming about as justifying (their own designed) threat in 2005. And how Cheney's planned orders on "response to next terror" mean an AUTOMATIC targeting of Iran regardless of where the source of terror comes from!

UPDATE: Gen.Byrnes Fired For Organizing Against Neo Cons? to Stop "real nuclear drill" as pretext for Cheney's stated mil. plan to Attack Iran Regardless of "Next Terror" Blame; Halliburton sold Nuclear to Iran in 2004


summary:
-------------------------------------

APRIL 2004, THE SET-UP #1:

Halliburton, the scandal-plagued oil company, that Vice President Dick
Cheney used to run, sold an Iranian company key components for a nuclear
reactor, Halliburton sources revealed. Cheney was CEO from 1995 to 2000,
during which Halliburton Products and Services set up shop [for the
first time] in Iran.

[Next,] Halliburton, which sells about $40 million a year worth of oil
field services to the Iranian Government, was secretly aiding one of
Iran's top nuclear program officials on natural gas related projects and
provided [as a cover route] the official's oil development company with
the [nuclear] components last April [2004], the sources said.

JULY 2005, THE SET-UP #2:

American Conservative Magazine recently reported that Dick Cheney ["formerly" of Halliburon as CEO though presently still receiving a cool million dollars a year from the corporation] had given orders to immediately invade Iran after the next terror attack in the US, even if there was no evidence Iran was involved.

AUGUST 2005, THE SET-UP #3:

Lehrman's army sources, including a former Captain in intelligence, became
outraged when they learned that the official story behind 9/11 was
impossible. They told Lehrman that the imminent Northcom nuclear terror
exercise based in Charleston, S.C, where a nuclear warhead is smuggled off
a ship and detonated [in August 2005], was originally intended to 'go
live' - as in the drill would be used as the cover for a real false flag
staged attack. This website has relentlessly discussed similar style
drills which took place on...9/11 and...7/7 in London.

BASED ON 'ANONYMOUS MILITARY SOURCES': "Brynes was the leader of a faction
that was preparing to instigate a coup against the neo-con hawks..."

Other sources however have offered a different explanation for Byrnes' dismissal which ties in with the Bush administration's unpopular plan to attack Iran and the staged nuclear attack in the US which would provide the pretext to do so. According to reporter Greg Szymanski, anonymous military sources said that Brynes was the leader of a faction that was preparing to instigate a coup against the neo-con hawks in an attempt to prevent further global conflict. [Byrnes was from the very Ft. Monroe, VA base where the "nuclear terror drill" is being staged this month of August 2005.]

SPECULATION BASED ON 'ANONYMOUS MILITARY SOURCES':

"Speculation exists that he had potentially discovered the fact that it
was gonna go live and that he was trying to put a stop to it or also
speculation indicates that he may be part of a military coup designed to
prevent the ridiculous idea of doing a nuclear war with Iran, " said
Lehrman.

ALL ARMY LEAVE CANCELLED AFTER SEPTEMBER 7, 2005

Lehrman said that other sources had told him all army leave had been
cancelled from September 7th onwards, opening the possibility for [a
planned] war to be declared within that time frame. [This is planned
to coincide mere days after Bush has finished his "33 day vacation."]

CNN ALREADY 'IN TRAINING' TO REPORT FROM NORTHCOM

Northcom officials also admitted to Lehrman that CNN had [already] been
using [Northcom's] situation room as a studio.

Four Star General Fired For Organizing Coup Against Neo-Cons?
Reporter suggests Brynes discovered plan to turn nuke exercise into staged
terror attack

Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones | August 10 2005

The head of Fort Monroe's Training and Doctrine Command, four star general
Kevin P. Byrnes, was fired Tuesday apparently for sexual misconduct
according to official sources.

Other sources however have offered a different explanation for Byrnes'
dismissal which ties in with the Bush administration's unpopular plan to
attack Iran and the staged nuclear attack in the US which would provide
the pretext to do so.

According to reporter Greg Szymanski, anonymous military sources said that
Brynes was the leader of a faction that was preparing to instigate a coup
against the neo-con hawks in an attempt to prevent further global
conflict.

Indications are that, much like popular opinion amongst the general
public, half the military oppose the neo-con's agenda and half support it.

Further revelations were imparted by journalist Leland Lehrman who
appeared today on The Alex Jones Show.

Lehrman's army sources, including a former Captain in intelligence, became
outraged when they learned that the official story behind 9/11 was
impossible.

They told Lehrman that the imminent Northcom nuclear terror exercise based
in Charleston, S.C, where a nuclear warhead is smuggled off a ship and
detonated, was originally intended to 'go live' - as in the drill would be
used as the cover for a real false flag staged attack.

This website has relentlessly discussed similar style drills which took
place on the morning of 9/11 and on the morning of 7/7 in London.

"Speculation exists that he had potentially discovered the fact that it
was gonna go live and that he was trying to put a stop to it or also
speculation indicates that he may be part of a military coup designed to
prevent the ridiculous idea of doing a nuclear war with Iran, " said
Lehrman.



Lehrman said that other sources had told him all army leave had been
cancelled from September 7th onwards, opening the possibility for war to
be declared within that time frame.

Northcom officials also admitted to Lehrman that CNN had been using its
situation room as a studio.

Earlier this week, Washington Post reported that the Pentagon has
developed its first ever war plans for operations within the continental
United States, in which terrorist attacks would be used as the
justification for imposing martial law on cities, regions or the entire
country.

American Conservative Magazine recently reported that Dick Cheney had
given orders to immediately invade Iran after the next terror attack in
the US, even if there was no evidence Iran was involved.

Government and media mouthpieces have been fearmongering for weeks about
how a nuclear attack within the US is imminent.

Now would be the most opportune time for the Globalists to stage a major
attack, as it would head off any potential indictments against the Bush
administration for their involvement in illegally outing CIA agent Valerie
Plame.

While rumors circulating about indictments having already taken place
against Bush and Cheney should rightly be treated very carefully, the fact
that there is an ongoing criminal investigation into the matter is
something that's admitted and shouldn't be viewed as speculation.

Halliburton provided Iran with key nuclear reactor components

Al Jazeera Magazine | August 10 2005

Halliburton, the scandal-plagued oil company, that Vice President Dick
Cheney used to run, sold an Iranian company key components for a nuclear
reactor, Halliburton sources revealed.

Cheney was CEO from 1995 to 2000, during which Halliburton Products and
Services set up shop in Iran.

Halliburton, which sells about $40 million a year worth of oil field
services to the Iranian Government, was secretly aiding one of Irans top
nuclear program officials on natural gas related projects and provided the
official's oil development company with the components last April, the
sources said.

FARS, one of Iran's many state controlled news agencies reported last
month the arrest of several executives of the Oriental Oil Kish Company,
which is owned by sons and other relatives of the defeated mullah
presidential candidate Hashemi Rafsanjani, saying that the men were
involved in widespread corruption of Iran's oil industry, specifically
tied to the country's business dealings with Halliburton.

According to a report posted on the Iran Press News website: "They were
brought up on charges of economic corruption". Following the necessary
investigations by the judiciary's bailiffs, with warrants from the public
prosecutor's office, the case of economic corruption and malfeasance,
certain of the authorities of Oriental Kish Oil Company have been arrested
and under questioning. The head of the board of directors was also among
those detained.

Halliburton, with a history of violations of U.S. law by conducting
business with countries the Bush administration claims are supporting
terrorism, was working with Cyrus Nasseri, vice chairman of the board of
directors of Oriental Oil Kish, on oil and natural gas development
projects in Tehran, registered in the United Kingdom and Dubai. Nasseri, a
key member of Irans nuclear development team, participated in Irans
nuclear negotiating with the European Union and the International Atomic
Energy Agency.

According to a report published by the Financial Times: Nasseri, a senior
Iranian diplomat negotiating with Europe over Iran's nuclear program, is
at the heart of deals with U.S. energy companies to develop the country's
oil industry.

A reliable source stated that, given the parameters, the close-knit
cooperation and association of one of the key members of the regime's
nuclear negotiation team with Halliburton can be an alarm bell which will
necessarily instigate the dynamics of the members of the regimes'
negotiating committee, according to the Iran Press News story.

In late July, Nasseri was questioned for passing Irans nuclear secrets to
Halliburton and receiving $1 million in bribes from the company, Iranian
government officials said.

According to Iran Press News, a huge network of oil mafia was uncovered
during investigations.

Halliburton sources revealed that the company sold Iran centrifuges and
detonators to be used specifically for a nuclear reactor as well oil and
natural gas drilling parts for well projects to Oriental Oil Kish.

Halliburtons business with Oriental Oil Kish first surfaced in January,
when the Iranian company said that it gave some contracts of the South
Pars natural gas drilling project to Halliburton Products and Services, a
subsidiary of Dallas-based Halliburton.

Later on, Halliburton said the South Pars gas field project in Iran will
be the its last project in the country, due to a poor business
environment, according to BBC.

In May and under mounting pressure from lawmakers in Washington,
Halliburton decided to end its deals with Nasseri, but continued acting as
an advisory capacity to his company.

Currently, the U.S. law doesnt prohibit foreign subsidiaries from having
business with what President Bush calls rouge nations as long as the
subsidiaries are truly independent of the mother company.

But Halliburtons Cayman Island subsidiary never did fit that description.

According to a February 2001 report in the Wall Street Journal,
Halliburton Products & Services Ltd. works behind an unmarked door on the
ninth floor of a new north Tehran tower block. A brochure declares that
the company was registered in 1975 in the Cayman Islands, is based in the
Persian Gulf sheikdom of Dubai and is non-American. But, like the sign
over the receptionist's head, the brochure bears the company's name and
red emblem, and offers services from Halliburton units around the world.

updates:

Bush coup comes unhinged? nuclear terror drill personnel removed; Bush to S.Arabia?; Plame
author: summarizer
attempting to take it all in, lots going on all over the world, summarized here in nine articles grouped for the common story they are relating that no one has talked about much....

Is Bush backing Netanyahu against Sharon's withdrawl of Gaza of Israelis? Note Cheney opining in the media that Israel "to join" Iran attack. Note Saudis withdrawing lots of U.S. invested funds very quickly. Note illegal plans for martial law already written up for "reflex like" response by NORTHCOM (mostly NATO personnel), regardless of who the terrorists really are...

Was General Byrnes fired to stop the terror drill's real intent (to hit the USA with terrorism organized by the Bush loyal military criminals)--or was Byrnes removed to merely advance it? Who are these people firing General Byrnes anyway, when nothing has even been issued against him, he was just suddenly "removed.?" More on Byrnes and fellow flag offers attempting to stop the neocons pre-emptive nuclear warfare as well as likely having stopped (so far) a planned terror drill that was to 'go live' from his Ft. Monroe base.

Meanwhile, Bush moves toward the "Fitzgerald Purge option" which could get really interesting fast, since other miltiary officers have said they will arrest Bush if he attempts to politically interfere with the Plame case now that it has focused on the White House as the source of the federal felony charge.
