at Pentagon, more than cordite

Let's dip back in time. According to one high security witness within the U.S. Federal military who was killed in 1996 within a year of coming out about the following information, they used a "construction-type micronuke" on the WTCs in 1993. These he said could only come from Mather's Air Force Base.

Let's start in 1976:

[1] US DoD's McNiven RICO SUIT! BUSH SENIOR, CIA head, & his 1976 state terror plan to hit WTCs!
Author: repost
Date: 2005.03.20 06:18
Description: A LIVE COURT CASE! DEAL WITH IT! WELCOME TO REALITY. Our own U.S. Army devised a plan commissioned by Congress to bring down the WTC...McNiven, who first went public in an affidavit included in a 9/11-related federal conspiracy (RICO) lawsuit filed against Bush and others in 2004, claims his unit was ordered to create the "perfect terrorist plan" using commercial airliners as weapons and the Twin Towers as their target.....publicized version of the study, commissioned by Congress, was to identify security lapses and submit corrective measures to lawmakers. However, McNiven claims the real purpose of the study was to brainstorm how to pull off the perfect terrorist attack using the exact same 9/11 scenario. The study, commissioned to C-Battery 2/81st Field Artillery, U.S. Army, stationed in Strassburg, Germany in 1976, specifically devised the scenario of the Twin Towers being leveled by Middle Eastern terrorists using commercial airliners and even plastic box cutters to bypass security. To silence critics, McNiven has successfully passed a credible lie detector test regarding his participation in the study as well as other specific orders given to him by his superiors in case of a real attack on the Twin Towers. The head of the 1976 mock terrorist plan was Lt. Michael Teague of Long Island, who McNiven says was given specific orders by higher-ups in the military to use the Twin Towers as the terrorist target. McNiven said he has been unable to contact Lt. Teague, but was interested in his opinion now that "the 9/11 attacks happened the way we planned them in 1976."

Then go to 1989:

[2] IN 1989, regarding the recent information coming out by Karl Schwartz about the plans to take down the WTCs legally (and expensively) which would cost around 5.6 billion dollars then: [Plans To Scrap WTC
Towers For $5.6 Bn In 1989!, From Karl W. B. Schwarz,  link to portland.indymedia.org

This is beyond and above the FBI's patsy driven attempt in the van (through Salam's FBI puppet terror cell. To elaborate:

[3] The FBI is on record giving the order to conduct terrorism on the WTC in 1993, via their hired gun Salam, who didn't want to carry out the attack 'for real' since he was told by the FBI that he was hired simply for a sting opreation to arrest some perpetrators in a terror cell he infiltrated for the FBI. [two minute video summary on this:  http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6752092058844526234

[4] When the FBI instead told him to both suggest the WTC as a target for the 1993 attack, as well as teach them how to make bombs, as well as FBI allowing him to provide live explosives--their agent started taping everything covertly that he was ordered to do in reference to FBI ordering him to carry out the 1993 terrorist attack on the WTCs.

[5] However, behind this cover patsy operation, there were other detonations in the basement in 1993 that were unable to be explained by this patsy operation. See below.

[6] Immediately after the failed attack on the WTCs, in 1993, the Bush family, through a corporate shell vehicle owned in part by the royal family of Kuwait, the Kuwaiti/American Corporation, was put in charge of security at the WTCs, with Marvin Bush on board. This was Securacom (later renamed Securatec). George H. W. Bush, as CIA Director, had his minions "sitting in" on crafting the "perfect terrorist hit on the WTCs" in 1976. Now the Bush family is in charge directly of WTC security.

[7] Immediately after the failed attack on the WTCs, in 1993, there is a "building assessment" for the U.S. government on the WTCs done. Dov Zakheim is in charge. Dov Zakheim is VP of Systems Planning Corporation and CEO of one of its subsidiaries. SPC is a high-tech outfit that specializes in, among other things, remote control commandeering of aircraft and the technical support required for live flight military exercises. In 1993, what is important is that SPC and TriData are historically "the real FEMA", the private corporations core to FEMA operational logistics.

[8] Since Zakheim's SPC conducted building assessment on WTC 1993 hit, it is certain that it was Dov Zakheim who hires or oversees the hire of top secret operator Fred Schneider, U.S. government demolitions expert and engineer, to do a full analysis of the WTCs.

[9] These investigations--at least the publicly acknowledged ones (there may be more secret ones--Phil didn't exactly say who hired him), though the public ones were done by TriData which is CONNECTED WITH FEMA.

[10] They chose Phil Schneider because they wanted to get someone so high up in the top secret infrastructure of the U.S. that he would be unable to tell anyone--thus, presumably, be completely trustworthy with the information he discovers. Phil was an ex-US government geologist, NATO geologist, Rhyolite security clearance. Phil only reported or was answerable to three people in the world: "directly to the President, to the head of the CIA, or a base commander." He could ignore everyone else and all other law inforcement legally. Second, they chose Phil Schneider because Schneider is the "one stop shop" for U.S. government demolitions, with expertise in using over 90 different explosives and their characteristics for different applications which went with an engineering career. He claimed he was daily familiar in his job with the explosion signatures and particular characteristics of more than 90 different kinds of explosives. He even invented some himself for particular US gov't/NATO secret operations, tunnelling, and underground base creation. Demolitions were only his later US gov't geologist speciality where he designed charges and explosions based on his geological expertise at rock analysis to pulverize huge underground caverns in different kinds of rock for secret military bases. Before these types of jobs, he used to work for Bechtel [George Schultz connected--they are in Iraq soaking in war profits presently; Bechtel does lots of top secret projects] and worked for at least a dozen other military industrial complex operations in top secret "black technologies" mostly at Nevada's Groom Lake/G4 bases.

[11] Phil is first hired as a mere "consultant" on "post terror investigations" in 1993 to guage his reactions first to learning about the real WTC terrorism of 1993 which had nothing to do with the van bomb though which ran parallel though independent to the van bomb.

[12] After doing his (likely TriData/SPC run) building assessment, i.e., learning all about WTCs engineering and getting classified photographs about the damage, US Gov't Geologist Phil Schneider discovers that some types of explosions in the WTC basement could only be caused by a micronuclear device. These he knew only came from Mathers Air Force Base. Schneider's high security classification forces him to keep mum about this. The particular type of constuction type micronuclear device is mostly radiologically clean.

[13] After studying the damage and becoming an expert on the engineering of the WTCs, and writing his report, Schneider claims he was called into a "smoke filled room" of federals, who ask him, with his knowledge now of the WTCs, will he help them bring the WTCs down in a fake terrorist event. Scnheider balked and refused.

[14] Schneider attempts to quit. They refuse his resignation. They refuse to let him off his military base. He finishes several other projects for the U.S. Government dealing with underground bases scattered throughout the U.S. He gets an excuse to leave the base to see his dying father. He does so. Though Schneider never comes back after that.

[15] In 1995, Schneider starts speaking out publicly about the U.S.'s WTC terror hits in 1993, from what he knows. He talks micronuke hits on the WTCs. Schneider, after his "flight based resignation" from the US gov't in 1995, began to talk about these confidences he was taken into regarding the actual 1993 WTC hit: how he was hired "as an investigative consultant" at first to do an entirely secret report about the condition and the explosion damage of the WTC.

[16] Murrah Building explosions occur in the middle of Schneider's window of talking out. Schneider says Murrah is U.S. Gov't hit as well, because of odd electromagnetic signatures in the explosions and the impossibility of the internal Murrah damage being done by a truck parked outside.

[17] Alex Jones' popularization of the coverage of the local news of Oklahoma shows that the national corporate media had a blackout in effect by failing to carry the information about the multiple bombs discovered planted within the Murrah building. See Alex Jones videos at  http://www.archive.org for the footage.

[18] In 1995, DOJ officials talk live on camera about "thanks to our recovering these unexploded bombs in the building, we can build up a terrorist profile of thir characteristics, likely orgin, and technical expertise." This DOJ public statement about multiple internal bombs in the Murrah Building goes down the Orwellian memory hole. See Alex Jones videos at  http://www.archive.org for the footage.

[19] A patsy named Melvine Lattimore aided attackers at WTC1 in 1993, Oklahoma in 1995, and (in the future) 9-11-01 at the WTCs. Your officials know this. He is still free.

[20] Phil in 1995 revealed what he saw in 1993 to the public. He was handed photographs that he claimed showed (paraphrased quotes here) "only one possible type of explosion due to the damange shown--damage like steel extrusion or steel stretching up to six feet at the site of the blast" where steel was stripped and pulled out of the reinforced concrete, actually pulled like taffy. Phil, from his expertise, said "that could only be caused by one thing: a construction-type nuclear device. And those are only housed at Mathers Air Force Base." [These are radiologically clean except for short term--at most a week or so--intense alpha radiation. Most Geiger counters don't even bother looking for alpha. These 'micro-nukes' interestingly enough are a speciality of the Israelis at Diamona, their illegally unmonitored nuclear weapons program [Mordichai Vanunu blew the whistle on Diamona], helped along by the U.S.]. Phil says he writes his WTC 'micronuke' report. He says he is asked, afterwards at last when they bring him into a large boardroom meeting, whether he "would be willing to injure Americans for us to serve your country's(TM) intersts?" In so many words. In other words they were priming Phil to do the WTC demolition right, since they had just hired him to learn all about the buildings construction and damages from 1993. He would be the perfect candidate. However, Phil balked: he attemped to walk out on them right then and there. They blocked him from the door he said. He threated to assault them, and they got out of the way. However, he was convinced later that he had to complete the existing deep underground military base project that he was working on at the time. He does so. However, when his father was dying, he asked to be "released" from the top secret base site to visit him. He was released. His father died soon after. However, Phil did not come back--to even claim his last paycheck. He began to write a book about everything he knew--writing from his Portland, Oregon apartment. He mailed back his security passes, ripped up. To gain credibility, as well as likely to protect himself should something arise, he had photocopied them. He began to show these photocopies--and tons of more information--to public audiences. Slowly at first. Then larger venues. He spoke publicly for about 9 months from 1995 to 1996. As the speeches went on he got more confident in his message, and a handful were videotaped and we still have them: his basic message was that the U.S. military is seriously out of control and it is out to destroy constitutional democracy. Inbetween these talks, he was repeatedly asked to "rejoin", though he refused. He says he is turning down his 1 million dollar a year guaranteed "retirement" package by talking because he is so concerned about what he knows they are doing. During his talks, the Murrah incident happened. He reported that from data he had seen, that there was no way that it was a truck bomb only; plus, he identified with his expertise in such things, that from the odd demolition signature, some type of scalar weapon had been utilized as well. Next, people simply wanted to assassinate him outright for speaking. Phil actually killed an FBI officer in a gun firefight. However, nothing happened because they didn't want the publicity. They attempted to kidnap his daughter. His ex-wife, who had custody of the daughter at the time, pulled a gun on the FBI agent. Nothing happens to her either. A local Sherrif who knew Phil even arrested an FBI officer stalking Phil. This FBI was either ready to kill Phil after breaking into his home or ready to take him away somewhere first. Still nothing happened. Phil says in late 1995 that he had survived well over a dozen assassination attemmpts, and that retired FBI officers who volunteered their services to Phil were even killed in gunfights protecting him. Still nothing happens: better to keep this hushed up. Phil was very likely killed in early Jan 1996. No one was allowed to see the body--not even his wife. Phil attempted to warn everyone what was going down--with very sensitive inside information.

[21] Schneider is dead within a year of coming out and talking, murdered. He says in some of his last talks he successfully outwitted around 20 attempts on his life--some of which he was shooting at and killing U.S. security teams.

[22] After his death, Schneider's whole apartment is cleared out of information, and his talked-of book never is published. Schneider mentions he came forward to warn all Americans that the U.S. federal government is using terrorism on its people to craft a police state.

[24] Then the thermate-aided controlled demolitions throughout the buildings, with evidence discovered by Dr. Stephen Jones of BYU.

[25] FEMA found thermate evidence of sulfur and evaporated steel in WTC7.
see comment here with FEMA photo of sulfurized I-beam of steel from their report.

[26] Seconds before the actual controlled demolitions of the WTCs, the characteristic short sharp spike, that seismographers [according to the report/interview in American Free Press] said was characteristic only of a nuclear explosion, occurred as a preliminary to the WTC1 and WTC2 buildings' controlled demolitions.

[27] Silverstein, several months after he got his 500 million dollars from the insurance company for the "terror strike story" of the WTC7, actually comes forward to reveal that his court argument was false and he lied in court, countering his insurance claim. Silverstein said instead that he admits he used a controlled demolition on WTC7, in the video "America Rebuilds," a PBS documentary.

[28] The 9/11 hits and Radioactive Uranium may be additionally responsible for the high level of health impairment in WTC workers.
author: Cathy Garger; News on link between Uranium and 9/11 - Exploding buildings at World Trade Center What is the connection between 9/11 and radioactive Uranium? I have been more than curious as to the high incidence of lung diseases and cancers appearing in Ground Zero victims occurring too soon after 9/11 to be merely due to "asbestos" poisoning alone. I just got word about a very important radio interview by Leuren Moret, world renown geoscientist and expert on Depleted Uranium. Subject: Watch Rense.com for breakthrough 9/11 discussion on Thursday the 29th

[29] It is known that they used a radiological device at the Pentagon as well:
Title: 9 CONFIRMATIONS of high radiation in 9-11 Pentagon state terrorism hit, i.e., not 757 there
Author: update on a previous post
Date: 2005.08.19 10:54
Description: 9 different people now...
"One of the confirmations from EPA, according to DU weapons specialist. Another from Boeing itself, that shows Boeing discounting the U.S. government story of the 757 at the Pentagon. Three others from radiation detected the day off and days after 9-11 around the Pentagon, by medical doctors."

Decadence Made to Order 28.Jun.2006 18:51

pull #7

It goes to show, to really cremate all care, throw everything you can at the sacrificial sacrifice. This, of course, is a real sign of total decadence. charlie four would do the job, tango four would do the job, but, of course, that's not enough - so throw everything at it everything you got in the grab bag. Makes a big party that way.

Whooppee, watch'em come down. "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...."

30-49: Bush/Brits cover up radiation, veto health funds for WTC rescue 29.Jun.2006 11:49


[30] To cover up the radiological evidence, immediately, at the White House's direction, the Environmental Protection Agency gave New Yorkers misleading assurances that there was no health risk from the debris-laden air after the World Trade Center collapse, according to an internal inquiry. "The day after the attacks, former EPA Deputy Administrator Linda Fisher's chief of staff e-mailed senior EPA officials to say that "all statements to the media should be cleared" first by the National Security Council,..." which of course would be connected to these state terrorist attacks.
see  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2003/08/270538.shtml
Date: 2004.07.20 07:21
Description: the 'duh' story of the year The data, which Jenkins says she culled from state records, appear damning. On the day after the attack, the memo claims, city test results from the corner of Centre and Chambers streets and from the corner of Spruce and Gold streets showed asbestos concentration at about twice the level considered safe by the EPA. The city did not release this information to the public, Jenkins says. The next day, Sept. 13, city tests were "overloaded" with asbestos in the air so much that the lab could not conclude precise amounts along Church Street. Again, the information was withheld, the memo claims. city testing data, some of which was later made public, showed asbestos levels 50 percent higher and more above what her agency considers safe, the memo states.

[31] They were measuring for radioactivity at the WTC.

Matthew, you mentioned the possibility of tactical nukes early on. Was anyone measuring radioactivity at the Ground Zero site?
MT: To my knowledge, in a very short period of time, there is going to be a book that is coming out that will explain some other things. And yes, there is somebody working on that I am aware of. And ..
AJ: So were there devices there?
MT: My belief is that is yes. Completely, yes.
Mike: Thank you.

[32] To cover up the radiological evidence, in an ongoing fashion, Bush vetos health funds and health monitoring for WTC-affected rescue workers and firemen.
"If they come down with illnesses 20 years from now [or merely 2 years]... and are not watched as a statistical group, their medical treatment will be affected ... Workers simply won't get medical care they need if they come down with diseases years later."
Title: Half 9-11 Rescue Workers' Health Suffering;Pollution'Could Cause More Deaths THAN ATTACK
Author: enn
Date: 2004.09.13 06:05
Description: Nearly half of the more than 1,000 screened rescue workers who responded to the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks suffer from new or exacerbated respiratory, mental, and other health problems, according to a government report released Thursday. --- PLUS: Up to 400,000 New Yorkers breathed in the most toxic polluting cloud ever recorded...no proper effort has been made to find out how their health has been affected according to an official report. --- The US government study provides the latest evidence of a systematic cover-up... --- Bush suppressed evidence of increasing danger... --- between 250,000 and 400,000 people in lower Manhattan were exposed to the pollution on 11 September 2001. No systematic effort to adequately monitor the well-being of those affected, give them physical examinations or provide treatment. --- cloud of pulverised debris from the skyscrapers was uniquely dangerous. Government's own figures show it contained the highest levels of deadly dioxins ever recorded - about 1,500 times normal levels. Unprecedented levels of acids, sulphur, fine particles, heavy metals and other dangerous materials were also measured. Asbestos was found at 27 times acceptable levels, and scientists found about 400 organic alkanes, phthalates and polyaromatic hydrocarbons - many suspected of causing cancer and other long-term diseases. Ground Zero smouldering became a "chemical factory", creating new dangerous substances.

Bush blocks funds for WTC rescue workers health or NYC monitoring 21.Sep.2004

Bush Blocked Bill For WTC Rescue Workers and Firemen: People Becoming Ill and Dying as a Result of the Deliberate Demolition

At his Waco, Texas pep rally..., President Bush announced that he intended to ...block...a US$5.1 billion emergency spending Bill passed by Congress. The Bill included US$90 million for long-term health monitoring of World Trade Centre (WTC) rescue workers and volunteers who were exposed to a catastrophe with potential long-term health and environmental consequences.
London Guardian:  http://www.cpa.org.au/garchve5/1108bush.html

[33] Bernard Loiseau, OF CONTROLLED DEMOLITION, INC., in under a week of 9-11, has a (pre-prepared?) a written formal plan to help clean up the WTCs: contract he then got.

[34] To cover up all evidence, police would tackle photographers and take their cameras.
AJ: Well I know they even banned photography at the site.
MT: They would tackle you and take your camera away. I watched people be tackled. I've been officially press for a while but I've done some press work - you know like writing a little article - and I have never, ever, ever seen anything like that.

[35] To cover up radiological evidence, New York City stalls, claims "no liability" despite sudden spikes of cancer in huge portion of WTC rescue workers.

Ground Zero Worker and 9/11 Hero Dying of Cancer From Toxins at WTC; White House And New York Officials Deny Liability and Have Thrown Victims into the Streets Like Pieces of Garbage
Pat Arcese, now dying of cancer, says government lied about the safety of workers at Ground Zero. He is now suing New York but officials have denied liability,....The three facts, in Arcese's own words, that proved to him the government lied were: "One, they had these little test tube bottles all around the WTC and they would use these as proof to the workers it was safe. Every day One of the EPA workers would tell us they checked the tubes and it was safe. I knew they were lying. "One day I went around and filled at least 30 of the tubes with asbestos that I found lying around the site. When EPA announced next morning and said it was safe, I caught them lying red-handed and called the official a liar right to his face."

[36] New York City and Bush White House WANT the WTC clean-up workers/witnesses dead. U.S. Gov't had "wash down" equipment for rescue workers at WTC--though they refused to use them.
"Another thing. The government spent millions of dollars on wash down machines for workers, but they never even used them once. Why? Well, they never even gave us protective gear or any protective clothing. They just didn't care about people, but they sure did care about getting the billions of gold out from the basement and they sure cared about hauling the steel away as quick as they could.

[37] Knowing the radiological dangers may lead back to the Bush Administration and Giuliani when they authorize the steel to be illegally shipped overseas before investigation. The decision is made to wash down the steel though NOT wash down the rescue workers. THEY WASH DOWN THE STEEL IN A CONTAMINATION CENTER UPON LEAVING WTC SITE, THOUGH IGNORE THE WORKERS.
"The second reason I know they lied is because I found out after the trucks that hauled the steel out left the WTC, they went into a wash down contamination center. What does that tell yah"

[38] FBI, CIA, EPA, U.S. Government observers tell everyone the lie that the WTC is safe, though the U.S. Government is saying this from a 'safe zone' for themselves, which they seldom if ever leave.
"And, the last thing, which is the icing on the cake, is the EPA put up this protective fence or what they called the 'safe zone.' And, think about it, there were hundreds of FBI and CIA there every day but they always stayed in the 'safe zone' and on the other side of the fence. Why?

[39] The officials know it is "contaminated", and tell the workers to leave their clothes on site
"MT: I think we should just keep going from the beginning. When we first got there, we were told where we could go and where we couldn't go. There were different places that you were not to go to. One of the things you were not to go to and they claimed it was for safety was down in the garages, the parking garages. They were very flooded. There were a lot of problems like that. All the apartments around there were all sealed off. A lot of things were very much sealed off. However, at the same time, right from the beginning, one of the things that I noticed was there was looting everywhere. People were stealing clothes that were meant for us. The rescue people - when our clothes got so contaminated, we were told not to bring our clothes off that site. Don't wear anything on the site you're not prepared to leave there because it's contaminated."

[40] Further insulating from U.S. law, WTC and Pentagon cleanup is under foreign British AMEC control--allowed to work on core U.S.'s security building. To simplify those in the know about the radiological dangers, and to limit U.S. law jurisdiction, the corporation that cleaned up WTC and Pentagon is the same: British owned AMEC. Giuliani hired more British foreign owned clean-up companies for isolating them legally from the WTC knowledge of its controlled demolition. The foreign corporations were assigned to the areas of controlled demolition in WTC1, WTC2, and WTC7. The only American clean up corporation, Tully, was kept from these areas. The companies Giuliani chose were all CEO'ed by Knights of the British Empire. AMEC of course is British as well.

[41] Giuliani is knighted by the British Empire soon after 9-11 attacks--which he illegally cleaned up without an investigation.

[42] People in Pentagon radiation suits would be under the direction of British AMEC.

[43] AMEC decision: On the other hand, civilian rescue workers that failed to get any "wash down" treatment at the WTC would be AMEC decision as well.

[44] AMEC decision: The "more important" (from the conspirators point of view) radioactive-dust ladel steel did get the "wash down" treatment--another AMEC decision. It's for the steel, instead of the workers.

[45] Soon after cleaning up, AMEC entirely leaves the U.S. in 2004.

Title: RADIATION shows 9-11 Penta. hit not 757: something with DU?; AMEC did Penta&WTC7 clean up
Author: repost
Date: 2004.10.25 02:05
Description: more damning fuel for the funeral pyre of the 9-11 'official story' that is completely dead by now. "Around the Pentagon there were reports of high radiation levels after 9-11. American Free Press has documentation that radiation levels in Alexandria and Leesburg, Va., were much higher than usual on 9-11 and persisted for at least one week afterward. In Alexandria, seven miles south of the burning Pentagon, a doctor with years of experience working with radiation issues found elevated radiation levels on 9-11 of 35 to 52 counts per minute (cpm) using a "Radalert 50" Geiger counter. One week after 9-11, in Leesburg, 33 miles northwest of the Pentagon, soil readings taken in a residential neighborhood showed even higher readings of 75 to 83 cpm. "That's pretty high," Cindy Folkers of the Washing ton-based Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) told AFP. Folkers said 7 to 12 cpm is normal background radiation inside the NIRS building, and that outdoor readings of between 12 to 20 cpm are normal in Chevy Chase, Md., outside Washington. The Radalert 50, Folkers said, is primarily a gamma ray detector and "detects only 7 percent of the beta radiation and even less of the [very short lived] alpha." This suggests that actual radiation levels may have been significantly higher than those detected by the doctor's Geiger counter. "The question is, why?" Folkers said. If the radiation came from the explosion and fire at the Pentagon, it most likely did not come from a Boeing 757, which is the type of aircraft that allegedly hit the building. --- "Boeing has never used DU on either the 757 or the 767, and we no longer use it on the 747," Leslie M. Nichols, product spokesperson for Boeing's 767, told AFP.

[46] The U.S. Congress set a three year limitation on suits aginst the WTC--unconstitutional, since it claims to remove capacities of Constitutional due process by recourse to (thus unConstitutional) law, which is illegal.

"A class action lawsuit on behalf of more than 800 people who suffer health effects was filed against WTC leaseholder Larry Silverstein and the companies that supervised the cleanup: AMEC, Bovis Lend Lease, Turner, and Tully Construction. The suit was filed on Sept. 10, the last day set by a federal three-year statute of limitations for lawsuits related to 9-11. "

[47] New York City continues health coverup, along with FEMA:
Another 9.11 cover-up: Environmental concerns in Manhattan after WTC destruction
"When the towers blew up, tons of hazardous waste was blown over NYC, but the city is denying the dangers and dragging its feet on the clean-up. WTC Fallout Government Coverups Outrage Community Groups: "If there is not money for us, what is there money for?" demanded Lowell Peterson, a lawyer for Local 78 of the Asbestos, Lead and Hazardous Waste Laborers.

[48] Clencher: Foreign owned British AMEC was put in charge of the areas hit on 9-11 long before 9-11. Then, they cleaned up after it. British AMEC did pre-9-11 WTC7 "renovations" and pre-9-11 Pentagon wedge "renovations and strengthening". Both of these British AMEC areas then suffer controlled demolition or were damaged intentionally on 9-11. Then Brititsh AMEC cleans it up. Then they leave the country in 2004.
"AMEC Construction Management, a subsidiary of the British engineering firm AMEC, renovated Wedge One of the Pentagon before 9-11 and cleaned it up afterward.

data theft huge and wholesale
by W Madsen Wednesday, Jun. 21, 2006 at 9:01 PM

the unprecedented physical theft of personal data by a U.S. intelligence operation to populate Total Information Awareness (TIA) surveillance databases ...

While Lou Dobbs continues to wave the bloody shirt over illegal immigration and the 24x7 infotainment "news" channels carp about North Korea and Iran, the unprecedented physical theft of personal data by a U.S. intelligence operation to populate Total Information Awareness (TIA) surveillance databases continues unabated. WMR has learned that the FBI has been warned off investigating these thefts. Within the last 24 hours, there have been three additional major thefts of data.

A computer stolen from the kidney transplant center at the University of Alabama at Birmingham contained the names, social security numbers, and other sensitive data on 9800 kidney donors, recipients, and patients waiting for transplants. That incident was followed by the theft from an Equifax employee riding a train near London of a lap top containing the names and Social Security Numbers of 2,500 Equifax employees. Equifax is one of the three major credit bureaus in the United States and many of its employees have access to the personal data of millions of Americans and others. This incident was followed by word that VISA USA suffered a security leak that may have compromised personal information of millions of VISA debit card holders. Because of the leak, Wachovia Bank replaced the VISA debit cards of its customers. We've updated our June 17 chart (below) to reflect these latest thefts.

Data thefts continue at breakneck speed while FBI stands idly by.

June, 2006 -- Nevada Democratic gubernatorial candidate Leola McConnell, who revealed that she witnessed George W. Bush perform a homosexual act in Tennessee in 1984, reports that she has received a number of death threats from right-wing extremists. These are obviously the same deranged elements who shopped around a story insinuating this editor is a suspect in the FBI anthrax investigation and provided a link to the FBI's "Amerithrax" tip web site. We have learned that the source for this "story," PHXNews, is located within a high-rent gated community/yacht club at 13952 Bora Bora Way in Marina del Rey, California. Perhaps the FBI would want to pay a visit to the address to investigate a false claim. Perhaps not.

In the case of threats against Ms. McConnell, Federal law prohibits the use of the Internet to convey threats and solicit violent acts. Violations carry a penalty of up to 15 years in prison and up to a $500,000 fine. Anybody home at the FBI these days? Millions of files of personal data being stolen on a daily basis, death threats against a gubernatorial candidate, a journalist tortured in Florida, and false claims circulated on the web against another journalist by a right-wing loon site, and the FBI sits on their collective asses as America continues to drift into banana republic status.

June, 2006 -- With polls showing Mexico's Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador gaining a steady four-point lead over his conservative, pro-U.S. rival, U.S. intelligence sources report that the Bush administration, working closely with new CIA Director Michael Hayden, is beefing up plans to destabilize an Obrador administration. These plans include "wet affairs" (assassinations) against senior figures in a PRD government, including Obrador himself, according to the sources. The U.S. wet affairs plans for Mexico are being coordinated from secret locations in southTexas. Mexico's presidential election is scheduled for July 2.

A President Obrador will be target number one for Bush regime. That may be good news for Iran and Venezuela but not good news for our southern neighbor.

June, 2006 -- George W. Bush is just shy of 30 years old, not old enough to be President. Well, that's according to his Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) arrest record card from the Kennebunkport, Maine Police Department. Bush's date of birth (DOB) is listed as July 6, 1976, which means that Bush would have been only a few months old when he was arrested for DWI on Sept. 4, 1976. Legal sources say this is not a typo but the result of a previous arrest record being scrubbed by changing the birth date to establish a new unblemished record. It is a common practice that is well known to many prosecutors and defense attorneys. Questions remain about Bush's previous arrests, which sources in Houston claim included a cocaine bust in Houston in 1972 or 1973 when Bush was serving in the Texas Air National Guard. Those records were also meticulously scrubbed.


June, 2006 -- WMR has spoken to a number of informed individuals about the current status of the Patrick Fitzgerald criminal probe of CIA "Leakgate." Legal experts wonder why Fitzgerald is even fooling around with a Grand Jury when the evidence of criminal wrongdoing cited by Judge David Tatel of the US District Court for the District of Columbia in the Scooter Libby matter appears extremely damaging to national security. In a February 2005 decision on the Grand Jury subpoena of reporters Judith Miller and Matt Cooper, Judge Tatel wrote, "the special counsel refers to Plame as 'a person whose identity the CIA was making specific efforts to conceal and who had carried out covert work overseas within the last five years' -- representations I trust the special counsel would not make without support. (8/27/04 Aff. at 28 n.15.)."

With such damage to national security already well established by the evidence collected by early 2005, legal experts say that Fitzgerald could have bypassed the Grand Jury process and filed a complaint, also known as an "information," with a Federal circuit court judge. Fitzgerald could have told the judge that sufficient evidence existed that a crime or crimes was/were committed, that this evidence was sufficient for a regular jury to consider, and requested that an arrest warrant or warrants be issued. Similarly, a Grand Jury can also file an information regardless of the wishes of the special prosecutor. The Grand Jury also has the power to subpoena any relevant document, including the diaries of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

Which brings us to what kind of 11th hour deal was worked out between Fitzgerald and Karl Rove's attorney Robert Luskin. On June 12, Luskin was faxed a letter from Fitzgerald stating that the special prosecutor "does not anticipate seeking charges against Karl Rove." There is much speculation among legal experts that Rove and Luskin worked out a cooperation agreement with the prosecutor in lieu of pressing ahead with an indictment. There is also a belief that the largely African-American Grand Jury, already hostile to the Bush administration, issued a True Bill (an indictment) against Rove on its own (in what is called a "runaway Grand Jury") without prompting from Fitzgerald and that this indictment remains sealed pending the outcome of Rove's cooperativeness with the prosecutor.

Whatever is the case at this point, it is clear, in the minds of legal experts, that Fitzgerald owes the American public some information on the progress of this case. With America's constitutional government hanging by a thread, legal experts reason that, above all, Fitzgerald owes some information to the American people and particularly to the next of kin of those Americans who have died in Iraq. After all, the entire leak matter was caused by White House retaliation against Ambassador Joseph Wilson and his covert CIA wife over the Bush administration being called to task over their lies about the "danger" from Iraq. Fitzgerald has been portrayed by the media as a crime fighting Elliott Ness-type from Chicago. In actuality, Fitzgerald is a prosecutor who should be looking out for the public interest, not engaging in a legal chess match with the likes of Rove and Luskin. And it is to the public he remains answerable. The public's patience in the CIA Leakgate is not infinite and we suggest that the families of those killed or maimed in Iraq send a letter to Mr. Fitzgerald demanding an update on a criminal case that directly resulted in the losses of their loved ones.

Families and friends of Iraq war dead and maimed: send your letters here, demand some information from Patrick Fitzgerald

June 20, 2006 -- Yesterday, this editor was present at the launch of a new web site, thedemocraticstrategist.org. The three main Democrats who launched the new web site were pollster Stan Greenberg; Ruy Teixeira of the Center for American Progress; and Bill Galston of the Brookings Institution and a founder of the Third Way movement discussed in a previous WMR article.

Also present for the launch were such Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) luminaries as Will Marshall of the pro-Iraq war Progressive Policy Institute and Donna Brazile, who serves on the advisory board of the neo-con Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. Among those who contributed to the first edition of the on-line magazine, Democratic Strategist, was Bob Borosage of the Campaign for America's Future (and co-host of last week's "limousine liberal" Take Back America conference where Hillary Clinton was booed despite efforts to control the audience) and Jerome Armstrong of the Daily Kos world. Although there were contributors from the Democratic Socialists of America and the labor movement, the slant of this new Democratic Party web site is very much DLC-oriented and is the first move to ensure that neocons/neo-libs have a major voice in a future Democratic Congress and White House.

The major theme of the news conference was a continuation of last week's Take Back America focus, "framing the message." The Democratic Strategist speakers stressed "less factional and more fact-based debate." Greenberg stated that Bob Borosage and Will Marshall agree that security is first." Other slogans tossed about were "no off-year on security," "facing special global challenges," and "Democrats must speak to Red America."

The DLC slant of this new operation was best exemplified by what the speakers said about the Connecticut Democratic primary race between neo-con Joe Lieberman and anti-war challenger Ned Lamont. Greenberg confessed that he is a friend of Lieberman and is working for his re-election. Brazile also said she was a friend of Lieberman and that she considered him a "man of true principles."

In answer to a question from this editor about how this new group would get its message out beyond the Internet to those workers and senior citizens who spend little or no time on the net, the answer was quite clear, "we are on line and if you don't use the Internet, you can't read our magazine." In addition, he emphasized that the new web site was directed at net-savvy Democratic operatives, activists, blogs, and the netroots. As I mentioned last week, the Democrats cannot seem to break out of their "limousine liberal" confines of the Washington Beltway. Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel is mixing with real people this week in Iowa as someone who remembers the grass roots and hands-on politics that propelled FDR, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton into the White House.

The DLCers' infatuation with security was not quite as evident after their press conference kicked off late because they were detained in the locked down foyer of the National Press Club to wait for Vice President Dick Cheney to take his seat at a simultaneously scheduled awards function. As sniffer dogs, armed guards, and Secret Service men waded through the waiting DLCers to enter a cordoned-off lobby complete with portable blue curtains and metal detectors, the Democratic-Lite moderates could be heard complaining about having to wait for Cheney. What's the matter? I thought they wanted national security. I guess not when it means they are inconvenienced. That, my friends, is the very definition of a limousine liberal.

New idea: fish and game commissions are tagging animals with RFID chips to monitor their migratory movements. Perhaps we could similarly tag neo-cons as they begin to migrate from the Republican to the Democratic Party.

DLCers: Standing by their man, "JoeMentum" Lieberman, Bush's Trojan horse in the Democratic Party

June 20, 2006 -- Yesterday morning, Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick, fresh from attending the Bilderberg meeting in Ottawa along with Goldman Sachs International chairman Peter Sutherland, abruptly announced his resignation in order to become the vice chairman of -- Goldman Sachs International. State Department sources are speculating that Zoellick may have been asked to resign over the State Department leak to The Washington Post of a June 6, 2006 cable from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad to the State Department. The leak of the cable reportedly infuriated George W. Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who had just painted glowing portraits of the improving situation in Iraq after Bush's quick visit to the former Saddam palace that now serves as the US Embassy.

Robert Zoellick: Sacked over leak?

The cable, officially signed by US Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad (but not necessarily written by him), is titled, "Snapshots from the Office: Public Affairs Staff Show Strains of Social Discord." The cable claims that Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki, who was given 10 minutes notice of Bush's presence in Baghdad when he was summoned, Warsaw Pact-style, by the president's staff, is reported in the cable to have no real power. Actual power lies with the militias and local warlords, according to the cable. The cable also describes Sunni-Sh'ia tensions among US Embassy staff who must all hide their employment lest they be killed by the militias for consorting with "the enemy." The poor electricity situation in Baghdad is also described in the cable: "employees all confirm that by the last week of May, they were getting one hour of power for every six hours without." Temperatures soared to 115 degrees Fahrenheit during the power outages.

The leak of the cable countered the White House propaganda about the improving situation in Iraq.

June 20, 2006 -- The spate of physical theft of personal data on computer storage devices continues at an alarming rate. WMR has previously reported that most of these thefts are not coincidental but are part of a coordinated and unprecedented effort by U.S. intelligence agencies to obtain personal data to populate Total Information Awareness surveillance databases. The latest theft was that of a flash memory drive at the University of Kentucky containing personal information on 6500 current and former University of Kentucky students. The theft occurred on May 26 but was recently made public by university officials. The chart in the June 17 article has been updated to reflect this most recent theft report.

From hard drives and laptops to data tapes and flash memory drives, personal data is being stolen on a virtual daily basis.

June 19, 2006 -- No sooner had we written the article on a coordinated effort by a covert U.S. intelligence operation to steal large amounts of personal data to populate Total Information Surveillance databases, came word that yet another laptop with personal data was stolen from the home of an ING Bank employee in Washington, DC. The laptop contained personal data, including financial information and Social Security Numbers, on 13,000 current and retired DC employees who participate in the DCPlus retirement plan.

It was also reported that in Dec. 2005, two ING laptops were stolen that contained personal data on 8500 Florida hospital employees. The physical theft of personal data is now approaching a virtual epidemic and is unprecedented in the history of the computer security practice, which dates back to the early 1970s. We have updated out chart (below) to reflect these most recent data theft reports.

June 19, 2006 -- American Media, which owns the tabloids National Enquirer, The Star, and The Globe, and which scooped the mainstream media on Gary Hart's affair with Donna Rice on "Monkey Business II"; Bill Clinton's affair with Gennifer Flowers and salacious details about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky; and Jesse Jackson's illegitimate child has published details of the George W. Bush-Condoleezza Rice relationship and his problems with First Lady Laura Bush in the current, June 26, 2006 issue of The Globe. WMR is quoted in the story.

They got it right about extra-marital affairs of Gary Hart, Bill Clinton, and Jesse Jackson. Now, they have the goods on George W. Bush. There goes Dubya's "5 percent poll bounce." Word from the South: This story ain't playing well among Dubya's white, fundamentalist base, his last bastion of support.

June 19, 2006 -- The annual Bilderberg Conference was held in Ottawa, Canada from June 8-11. We've never been comfortable with those who claim this conference of the elites of international politics, finance, and media somehow represents a conspiracy of global bankers. That canard is as old as dirt and usually is proffered by those with an all-too-familiar agenda. A press release from the conference states that Bilderberg takes name from a hotel in Holland where the first meeting took place in 1954. The release also states that members chosen for experience, knowledge and "standing." However, it is noteworthy that this year's conference continued to include a number of neo-cons, even though their Iraq war and other destructive policies have now come under widespread condemnation. Considering that Bilderberg states that members are chosen based on their standing, it is clear the U.S. neo-cons are still considered very much in charge in the Bush administration. Many of the neo-cons in Ottawa were also repeat participants in the conclave.

The most notable neo-cons at Bilderberg this year were: Richard Perle, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute; William Luti, Special Assistant to the President for Defense Policy and Strategy; National Security Council; Dennis Ross, Director, Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP);
Ahmad Chalabi, Former Deputy Prime Minister of Iraq; Philip Zelikow, Counselor Department of State (and former Executive Director of 911 Commission); and Robert Zoellick, Deputy Secretary of State.

Cattle call for the usual neo-con suspects at Bilderberg 06 Ottawa: Kissinger, Perle, Chalabi, and Dennis Ross.

Also in attendance were the usual suspects: Henry Kissinger, Chairman Kissinger & Associates; James Wolfensohn, Special Envoy for Gaza Disengagement (US); J. Stapleton Roy, Managing Partner, Kissinger & Associates; Vernon E. Jordan, Senior Managing Director, Lazard Freres & Co.; and David Rockefeller, former member JP Morgan International Council.
Also in attendance was George Pataki, the Governor of New York. Neo-con media was represented by Anatole Kaletsky, Editor at Large, The Times (UK) and Paul Gigot, Editorial Director, Wall Street Journal.

The conference agenda was heavily concentrated on energy as witnessed by the participation of Peter Sutherland, Chairman BP and Chairman of Goldman Sachs International; Roger Sant, Co Founder, Chairman Emeritus, AES Corporation and The Summit Foundation; and Mark Medish, Partner, Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer and Feld, LLP, which represents the interests of Saudi Arabia in Washington, DC.

June 19, 2006 -- Received from Australia Friends of the Earth/People for Nuclear Disarmament:


The United States government has warned the DPRK (North Korea), who seem to be poised to perform a missile test (maybe), of unspecified negative consequences should they perform that test.

However, the United States itself performed an exactly similar test last Wednesday, when it fired a minuteman missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base to Kwajalein Atoll in the pacific.

The test was described as 'routine', and the US conducts such tests on a continuing basis. Nonetheless, the double-standard in dealing with the DPRK is breathtaking.

The DPRK may be preparing to conduct a test of the as - yet untried Taepo-Dong - II missile, which is said to have a range capable of reaching the continental US. The US has warned the DPRK of unspecified but negative consequences should it proceed with the test, which may have been scheduled for this weekend.

Australian peace - groups have called for the US to do as it asks others to do.

According to nuclear weapons campaigner John Hallam of Friends of the Earth and People for Nuclear Disarmament, "If the US believes that others such as the DPRK ought not to test nuclear - capable missiles, and describes those tests as 'provocative', it should at least refrain from testing itself. .Having tested a missile as little as a week ago, the US is hardly in a position to complain if the DPRK tests. Current US policies are simply pushing nations such as the DPRK and Iran in precisely the direction that we say we do not wish them to go. We say we don't want a nuclear - armed DPRK (which we already have) or a nuclear - armed Iran (which we do not yet), yet the direction of current policy all but ensures that this is what we will get."

U.S. to North Korea: Do as we say, not as we do.

June 18, 2006 -- You never know what you'll find in the used newspaper bin at Starbucks. Yesterday, a copy of the right-wing, neocon rag, National Review, was found in the newspaper bin at our local Starbucks. We know that with neocon lickspittles like Wolf Blitzer. Rush Limbaugh's girlfriend Daryn Kagan, and recent acquisition, the "Philly fascist" Glen Beck, CNN is nothing more than Fox News-lite, but we had no idea that CNN's network field reporters are readers of the National Review. Click here.

June 18, 2006 -- WMR has heard through the grapevine that Karl Rove and his pimply-faced minions at the Republican National Committee and right-wing boiler shops around the country are going to target this editor in the aftermath of his recent "pass" from the CIA "Leakgate" Special Prosecutor. If Rove and his boys think that trying to link me with the anthrax attacks is going to have any effect, they are in for a big disappointment. I won't even dignify their ridiculous insinuations with a response, but Mr. Rove might want to think twice about directing his particularly nasty venom at yours' truly. The following is what appeared on a Reich-wing web site called PHXNews, with a link to the FBI's anthrax tip line ...


Wayne Madsen New "Person of Interest" in Anthrax Probe ?

An OSI News Exclusive !

OSI : Information THEY don't want you to see ...

Washington, June 4, 2006 : Federal investigators have refused to comment on rumors a mysterious " W. MADSEN" ,who is said to have had ties to and dealings with the controversial NSA "spy shop",is being "looked at as a person of interest" in the nearly five-year-old Amerithrax investigation.


We have been able to confirm there is a Wayne Madsen : self-described as a Washington-based investigative reporter, who was employed by NSA during the Reagan Administration , and who is, to judge by his website :


still privy to much top-secret government information.

Our informants point out that Washington, DC is not very far from Ft. Detrick, Maryland-home of the Army's Bio-research program-and a relatively short train ride away from Princeton, NJ , location of the deadly "anthrax mailbox" .

A WHOIS lookup shows that PHXNews is located at: 13952 Bora Bora Way, Marina del Rey, CA 90292. Typical of right-wing disinformation machines, they are well-funded to the point they can exist in wealthy and chic places like Marina del Rey. Oh, one more thing. While I'm on my upcoming West Coast book tour, I may pay a little visit to Bora Bora Way just to prove my point that the people who are behind these web sites are socially-repulsive, troll-like life forms who are missing large genetic segments found in the human genome.

My friend Larry Johnson recently (and aptly) said the following about Karl Rove, "Karl is a shameless bastard. Small wonder his mother killed herself. Once she discovered what a despicable soul she had spawned she apparently saw no other way out." Well, Karl. There's something else we know about you. In mid-summer 2004, some time after I wrote an article for CounterPunch about -
(  http://www.counterpunch.org/madsen1101.html ) - the agit-prop crimes of Karl Rove and while I was speaking out against Rove on a number of radio shows, I was contacted by a credible source in Palm Springs, California who told me he was talking to one of his acquaintances who was just getting over the death of his longtime "significant other." Then the Palm Spring resident dropped the big bombshell -- the acquaintance's "significant other" was Louis Rove, the adoptive father of Karl Rove. Louis Rove reportedly suffered from emphysema.

No wonder Karl Rove is so messed up and hateful. Rather than accept things the way they are and not the way he wants them, Karl Rove demonizes gays, Democrats, Gold Star moms, combat veterans, liberals, the peace movement, and anyone with whom he doesn't agree. No wonder Rove and Dubya get along so well. They are both sociopaths living lies every day and every hour.

June 17, 2006 (UPDATED) -- What's behind all the personal data thefts? Populating the surveillance databases specified by John Poindexter's Total Information Awareness (TIA) system. WMR has learned that the thefts of personal data from corporations and government agencies, most of which were accomplished by stealing computer hard drive devices, is more than coincidental. Intelligence sources report that many of the large scale thefts are part of a well-planned covert intelligence operation to obtain data on hundreds of millions of people in order to accomplish what former Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) official John Poindexter was not able to bring about through his defunct (but secretly restored) Total Information Awareness (TIA) system -- the population of intelligence and surveillance databases with files on the financial, medical, employment, telecommunications, and other sensitive data of Americans and foreigners. Much of the new TIA work is being conducted under the umbrella of the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency.

A number of computer security experts have said the recent rash of data thefts is unprecedented in scope, method, and frequency. Some claim that the thefts appear to be coordinated and targeted at specific data types.

The physical theft of personal data is unprecedented in the history of computer security in the United States. Intelligence sources reveal massive data theft is part of a plan to populate U.S. surveillance databases.

Amid all the above personal data thefts, WMR has learned from a U.S. intelligence source that these data thefts pale in comparison to the largest, and as yet, largely unreported, personal data theft in history. Some 30 million Americans were affected and they included customers of Citigroup, Bank of America, and SunTrust. The thefts were conducted between March and April of this year.

June 17, 2006 -- CIA communications put at risk in foreign ownership deal. According to informed intelligence sources, the recent acquisition of Houaston-based SkyPort International, Inc. by Balaton Group Inc., a Canadian private equity firm wholly owned by five Canadians and which is based in Toronto with offices in London and Vancouver, British Columbia. Balaton has been described as a Canadian mini-version of the Carlyle Group.

SkyPort was founded in 1999 by NASA engineers and communications technicians working at the agency's Houston complex. Skyport specializes in KU-Band satellite communications that is effective in all weather conditions. The large 13-meter satellite dishes used by SkyPort were designed at NASA's Ellington Field facility in Houston. When SkyPort began to run into financial problems, Century Tel (a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier or "CLEC") bought stock in the small communications company to bail it out. The deal was worked out by the law firm of Bracewell & Patterson (which has since become Bracewell & Giuliani -- that is, Rudy Giuliani, former NYC Mayor and GOP presidential hopeful). In November 2005, SkyPort filed for bankruptcy and CenturyTel, which had been acquired in a merger with Alltel in March 2002, wanted to clear its books of SkyPort's liabilities.

Enter Balaton Group with a sweetheart deal to acquire the SkyPort. On March 15, SkyPort released the following statement: "SkyPort International Inc, has filed in US Federal Court its motion to have chapter 11 proceedings dismissed as the company no longer needs the protection of the Bankruptcy Code. The motion and full dismissal is expected to be granted on March 30, 2006. SkyPort, with the help of its new financial partner, Balaton Group Inc., will emerge and resume normal operations." Federal Communications Commission (FCC) public notice Report TEL 01016, dated April 13, 2006, states, "On November 21, 2005, SkyPort filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. As a result, its international section 214 authorization was assigned on a pro forma basis to Skyport as a debtor-in-possession. As of February 15, 2006, SkyPort DIP secured debt financing and filed a motion to dismiss its bankruptcy case, which the court granted on March 30, 2006." Debt relief came from Balaton.

CIA insiders report: CIA ultra-secure communications compromised by foreign acquisition deal. Coming as no surprise: Carlyle Group (Bush, Incorporated) is involved.

Through bankruptcy law "Rule 2004" procedures, which grants the ability of involved parties to investigate all bankruptcy matters, including private documents, this is what is now known about the SkyPort deal. SkyPort had active contracts with the CIA at the time its was acquired by both CenturyTel and Balaton Group. SkyPort's secure satellite communications systems gives the CIA the ability to strongly encrypt videoconferencing, data transfer, Voice over IP (VOIP), secure virtual private networks (VPNs), remote video monitoring, and secure Internet. The company is currently involved in constructing a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) at Ellington Field, which is also the home to the 147th Fighter Wing of the Texas Air National Guard, the unit that George W. Bush was assigned but from which he spent most of his time in AWOL status ...
