UNO UPDATE: 'Exercise' To Focus On Nuclear Terror Scenario In US

Exercise To Focus On Nuclear Terror Scenario In US

Is this the plan just like the “false flag” operations on 9/11 in New York and at the Pentagon, and earlier this month in London, on 7/7? Is the Pentagon itself going to stage a nuclear strike against an American city under cover of this “planning” exercise and then falsely blame Arabs or Muslims in order to justify a wider nuclear attack by American forces against Arab and Muslim targets and cities?

How deep does the evil go in the American military and the Bush White House and the bought-and-sold U.S. Congress?

FORT MONROE, Va. — Here’s the scenario…A seafaring vessel transporting a 10-kiloton nuclear warhead makes its way into a port off the coast of Charleston, S.C. Terrorists aboard the ship attempt to smuggle the warhead off the ship to detonate it. Is this really a possibility?

Joint Task Force Civil Support (JTF-CS) here is planning its next exercise on the premise that this crisis is indeed plausible.

Sudden Response 05 will take place this August on Fort Monroe and will be carried out as an internal command post exercise. The exercise is intended to train the JTF-CS staff to plan and execute Consequence Management operations in support of Federal Emergency Management Agency Region IV’s response to a nuclear detonation.

Some of this year’s objectives for SR05 are to refine nuclear incident Concept of Operations, produce a CM Operation Order, refine command post set-up procedures and maintain situational awareness of multiple CM incidents.

The Sudden Response exercise has been held at Quantico, Va., in the past, but has been moved to Fort Monroe to maximize command post training time. The senior leadership felt that it was more important to accomplish training instead of losing up to a day and a half in travel time, said Paul Deflueri, J7 Lead Exercise Planner. “This will allow us to still meet our training objectives,” he said.

Some external participants may work with JTF-CS during the exercise.

“We’re trying to get representatives from FEMA Region IV as well as representatives from South Carolina Emergency Management Division and active duty soldiers from the (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive) Consequence Management Response Force to play the role of task force units,” Defluri said.

“Each time we do one of these internal exercises, we try to make it more robust and try to add in fidelity,” Defluri said. “That’s what we’re trying to do for SR05: create a good scenario and be able to replicate the effects as best we can. That way we can give the command a really good CM exercise.”

Robin Sage Exercise To Start Friday

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — The latest edition of the Special Forces “Robin Sage” exercise is scheduled to begin Friday across much of central North Carolina, officials said.

The two-week exercise, which runs through Aug. 13, is designed to provide prospective Special Forces soldiers with realistic training in unconventional warfare. The students are supposed to battle opposing forces in the mythical nation of Pineland, and units across Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base, Army cadets from ROTC and West Point and Marines from the recruit depot at Paris Island, S.C., play the role of guerrilla forces in Pineland, officials said.


July 28, 2005

Robin Sage will be conducted in Alamance, Anson, Chatham, Davidson, Guilford, Hoke, Montgomery, Moore, Randolph, Richmond, Robeson, Rowan, Scotland, Stanly and Union counties.

Three years ago, a soldier was killed during a scuffle by a local law enforcement officer who didn’t know a Robin Sage exercise was taking place. All public safety officials throughout the affected area are now notified about the exercise, and those taking part wear armbands to identify themselves.

Residents in the affected communities may hear blank gunfire and see occasional flares, officials said. Residents who encounter a problem should contact local law enforcement officials, who will immediately contact exercise control officials.

RUSSIAN THREAT PERCEPTIONS AND PLANS FOR SABOTAGE AGAINST THE UNITED STATES

HEARING BEFORE THE MILITARY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT SUBCOMMITTEE OF THE COMMITTEE ON ARMED SERVICES

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

ONE HUNDRED SIXTH CONGRESS

FIRST SESSION

HEARING HELD
OCTOBER 26, 1999

reveal particularly dramatic evidence of Moscow’s alarmist attitudes and behavior in the KGB’s prepositioning on North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) territory and possibly United States territory, caches of high explosives and arms intended for sabotage operations in the event of war.

After the Cold War, Russian political and military leaders never disclosed the existence of these caches to the West. Andrew and Mitrokhin’s information has led to the discovery of arms and explosives hidden in Switzerland and Belgium so far. The FBI is conducting an ongoing investigation for KGB arms caches in the U.S., and I will have comments on the meeting I had with the FBI, just last week on this issue during the hearing.

Another reason Lunev suspected small atomic weapons might already be prepositioned in the United States was because Aleksandr Lebed, former secretary of the Russian Security Council, told a U.S. Congressional delegation including several members of this committee in May, 1997 that dozens of such weapons were unaccounted for. Lebed told the U.S. delegation, and later testified before this committee on October 1st, 1997, that the missing nuclear devices were the perfect terrorist weapon as the small A bombs were made to look like suitcases and could be detonated by one person with less than 30 minutes’ preparation.

In a hearing before this committee on October 2nd, 1997, Dr. Alexei Yablokov, a former member of the Russian Security Council and respected scientist, supported Lebed’s claim that Russia had in fact manufactured suitcase nuclear weapons. Although the Russian Government initially denied the existence of these weapons, Moscow eventually acknowledged that such weapons had been produced.

US TAKE COVERBUSH RATINGS BELOW PRE 911 LOWS

Flak jackets, and bio-chem suits should be coming in style this week in the states. Last time the numbers looked like this we got 911, and since the shrub is a one trick pony, the only option that he knows how to use is a false flag “terror” attack on his own people…or perhaps that is just the one he enjoys the most. Whatever, I smell an imminent domestic attack of some sort in the air.

Poll: Bush approval ratings hit lowest point of tenure

WASHINGTON (USATODAY.com) — President Bush’s job approval ratings have hit the lowest point of his tenure and the number of Americans with an unfavorable opinion of him has reached 50% for the first time, according to a Gallup poll released Friday.

Forty-four percent of Americans approve of the way Bush is handling his job, according to the poll, while 51% disapprove. That is a four-point drop from Bush’s approval rating of July 22-24 and 1% below his previous low of 45% in a poll taken June 24-26. Bush’s approval ratings have now been at 50% or lower since mid-March.

The poll also puts Bush’s unfavorable rating among Americans at the highest level of his presidency — 50%. Forty-eight percent of Americans had a favorable opinion of the president, marking the first time in Bush’s tenure that his unfavorable rating is higher than his favorable rating. In contrast, a Gallup poll in late November of 2001, less than three months after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, put Bush’s favorable rating at 87% and his unfavorable rating at 11%.

Bin Laden’s favorite dates Aug. 6 of special significance to al-Qaida?

————————————————————————————————————————
Posted: July 30, 2005
5:55 p.m. Eastern
© 2005 WorldNetDaily.com
Intelligence gathered from captured al-Qaida documents and interrogations of captured operatives has provided the U.S. with some specific information about Osama bin Laden’s favored dates for his “American Hiroshima” nuclear attack.

One of the most frequently cited dates is Aug. 6, the anniversary of the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. Saturday marks the 60th anniversary of that attack, so this Aug. 6 would have special significance.

Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the premium, online intelligence newsletter published by the founder of WND, has a full report on the threat assessment regarding Aug. 6 and other dates known to be favored by al-Qaida.

*”‘Doomsday’ plan approved for House
Congress OK’s election measure”:http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2005/07/30/doomsday_plan_approved_for_house/*

By Richard Cowan, Reuters | July 30, 2005

WASHINGTON — Congress approved a plan yesterday that would quickly replace members of the House in the event many die in an attack or disaster.

The so-called doomsday bill would require special elections within 49 days if more than 100 of the House’s 435 members were killed.

Currently, it can take 75 days or more for some states to hold special elections to replace a member who dies in office or resigns.

The Senate has no such problem since the US Constitution allows governors to make temporary appointments to fill Senate vacancies.

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, there have been multiple evacuations of the Capitol because of incidents such as aircraft straying into protected zones over the city that have caused alarms to be raised.

As Congress has struggled to set new procedures in case of an attack on the Capitol, some lawmakers said that even a seven-week lag before special elections would leave too much power in the hands of the president during a national emergency.

The measure was attached to a spending bill to fund Congress’s operations in the fiscal year starting on Oct. 1, and the Senate’s vote yesterday sent it to the White House for President Bush’s signature.

*“The 60 Year Cycle &
Yin and Yang”:http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Olympus/5516/thorosixty.html

Sixty Year Cycle
Chinese philosophy recognizes five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. They are types of energy with the power to alter the nature of whatever, or whomever, they contact. Wood enhances creativity and imagination. Fire gives energy and passion. Earth adds stability, industriousness, and practicality. Metal gives strength of will to a person’s character. Water promotes the qualities of sensitivity and persuasiveness.

A complete Chinese Horoscope cycle is sixty years, or five 12-year cycles.

Each animal makes five appearances during the sixty years and is influenced by a different element each time. There are subtle differences in the horoscope of each animal according to which of the five cycles it occurs in.

These differences add an extra dimension to the horoscope and reveal how two individuals with the same animal sign can have different personalities.

Yin and Yang
The forces of Yin and Yang are of great importance in Chinese culture. They represent opposites found throughout nature and are complementary forces that keep nature in balance. Yang is active and is associated with day, fire, and the sun. Yin is associated with night, water, and the moon.
Notice that there is a yin spot within the yang area and there is a yang spot within the yin area. Nothing is ever entirely yin or entirely yang. One does not seek absolutes; one seeks harmony. Yin attracts Yang while Yang attracts Yin.

If you know the Yin-Yang aspect of your year of birth, you can use this knowledge to adjust your behavior to reach for a harmonious balance and avoid disharmony in your life.

“60 YEAR CYCLE.”:http://www.waterdragoninc.com/60yearcycle.htm

In the Chinese calendar-clock there are 12 animals and 5 elements. Thus (12×5=60) the animal cycle requires 60 years to make ‘a unit of one’. Where the western clock uses 60 seconds to make a unit of one minute, and 60 minutes to make a unit of one hour, the Chinese take a longer view, and use 60 years to make a unit of one cycle. If you wish to see the next cycle, just add 60 years to the most recent year in each box, e.g., the yang water rat box pf 1972+60=2032.

This is the dragon which devours its own tail.

Epigram 14
An atrocious hunger taught the Polyps to gnaw at their own legs,
And taught men to feed on human flesh.
Now the dragon, while it bites itself in its tail and devours it,
For the most part itself, becomes food for itself.
This dragon will have to be conquered, by the sword, hunger and imprisonment,
Till it devours itself and spits itself out, kills itself and generates itself again.

was so excited when I saw this Double Flying Dragon

realizing this Twisted Past of Civilation and the Sexual Symobology triggered thoughts of
who are Creators were and those who worship it’s Image.

The Stories of Serpents and Angels described in Genisis
unlocked vivid details to some Jeckel & Hyde like Society playing the role of the Wolf in Sheeps clothing.

Like all the legends of Reptilain Species do those creatures exist and do they have thier servents
Conducting this Reptilian Worship Ceremonys unveiling this Ancient Conspiasy.

I can’t stop thing how men and women can still after all these years people are still practicing these Secret

People who claim they are advancing our civilization
can’t act like adults and have to hide in the darkness
so they don’t make others think they’re a group of nuts .

Emissary71,

Never read “Debt of Honor”, saw “Sum”.

Remember This one:

Based on a story by Lawrence Wright, the convoluted plot revolves around an FBI agent (Denzel Washington), a United States Army General (Bruce Willis), and a burnt-out, murky-minded CIA agent (Annette Bening) who team up to find an underground cell of Islamic terrorists who are causing chaos in New York City, blowing up a bus in Brooklyn and threatening children. In a panic, the President imposes martial law and suspends citizens’ Constitutional rights, allowing the Army and the National Guard to supplant local law enforcement for the duration of the operation, thereby creating a police state. The implications deepen when all people of Arabian descent are considered suspicious and rounded up, like the Japanese-Americans during World War II, posing questions like: Does one have to become monstrous to fight a monster? How far do you go to protect freedom? While it all reads well, it doesn’t play out on the screen. On the Granger Movie Gauge of 1 to 10, “The Siege” is a formulaic, forgettable 4. It’s not dramatic enough to deserve merit, not suspenseful enough to attract an action-oriented audience, and so preachy as to be almost ludicrous.

“Homeland Security Threatens Nation with Nuclear Attack”:http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=45539

————————————————————————————————————————

Issuing yet the latest warning of the threat of nuclear terrorism in the U.S., Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said there are far worse security problems facing the country than bombings of mass-transit systems.

In comments during a visit to Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California this week, Chertoff said the foremost concern for the nation’s security now is the threat of a larger chemical, biological or nuclear attack.

Chertoff joins the growing list of public officials – including President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Chertoff’s predecessor at Homeland Security, Tom Ridge – who have strongly hinted that nuclear terrorism has moved center stage as the No. 1 security threat facing the U.S.

Last month WND and its sister publication, Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, reported increasing evidence suggests al-Qaida not only has nuclear weapons in its arsenal, but has smuggled them into the U.S. along with thousands of sleeper operatives.

Referring to the London bombings, Chertoff said: “We can’t let what happened two or three weeks ago beguile our concerns about what could happen in the future.”

WHAT TO DO IF A NUCLEAR DISASTER IS IMMINENT!”:http://www.ki4u.com/guide.htm

————————————————————————————————————————

This guide is for families preparing for imminent terrorist or strategic nuclear attacks
with expected severe destruction followed by widespread radioactive fallout downwind.

IF ONLY A ‘Dirty Bomb’ Attack (Not the vastly more devastating nuclear weapon blasts with fallout discussed below.) – You can expect localized and downwind contamination from the explosion and dispersed radioactive materials. If you are near enough to see or hear any local bomb blast, assume that it includes radiological or chemical agents. You should move away from the blast area as quickly as possible. If the wind is blowing toward you from the direction of the blast, travel in a direction that keeps the wind to your left or right as you move away from the blast area. If possible cover your face with a dust mask or cloth to avoid inhaling potentially radioactive dust. Upon reaching a safe location, remove your outer clothing outside and shower as soon as possible. Refer to local news sources for additional instructions about sheltering or evacuation. The government is better prepared to direct and assist the public in a ‘dirty bomb’ incident, unlike an actual nuclear weapon attack discussed below.

The First Hunt for WMD Jeffrey Richelson documents 60 years of spying on foreign efforts to build the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

After nuclear fission was discovered in 1939, several nations tried to weaponize the atom. Though most early programs quickly fizzled, it was fear of a Nazi atomic bomb that spurred the United States to build its own device in 1945. In Spying on the Bomb: American Nuclear Intelligence From Nazi Germany to Iran and North Korea, due out next March, historian Jeffrey Richelson documents 60 years of spying on foreign efforts to build the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

“Iran: New president handed a nuclear confrontation”:http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/GH02Ak02.html

New president handed a nuclear confrontation
By Safa Haeri

PARIS – Incoming Iranian president Mahmud Ahmadinejad, who takes office August 3, has been given a hand-made and potentially explosive crisis by outgoing President Mohammad Khatami.

Iran announced at the weekend that it would end its indefinite suspension of uranium enrichment, nuclear fuel reprocessing and related activities as Tehran had not received compromise proposals as promised by the European Three ( EU-3 – Germany, Britain and France) who are negotiating with Iran.

The EU immediately branded the move “unnecessary and damaging” and one which could derail their talks.

Iranian analysts interpret the move as an indication of the pressures that the conservatives will put on Ahmadinejad for the full resumption of nuclear activities, at the price of stopping talks with the EU-3 and even getting out of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty to which Iran is a signatory.

UNO UPDATE: ’8-8’ Time Code of August”:http://www.goroadachi.com/etemenanki/blog-05july.htm#073105

Here is a quick rundown of what’s going on with the ‘Super Torch Ritual’ (STR) scheme for the current period…

Eight-Eight

There is presently some buzz about the date August 6 coming up, which happens to be one of our ‘original’ STR key dates and associated with Paris and such. In the STR context it is always a date to be closely watched… pretty much every year.

Update 8/1: This year’s August 6 is highlighted by an ‘orange alignment’ of Earth-Mercury-Sun which has long been found pertinent to the STR pattern. It also coincides with Tempel 1 – the comet hit by NASA’s Deep Impact on the 7/4 ‘torch day’ – crossing the Galactic Equator as seen from the Sun.

However, what I’m detecting now – a quite strong ‘signal’ – points, instead, to 8/8 as a more significant anchor date, which I guess could be seen as a follow-up to 7/7 (at least numerically).

On this Etemenanki website, so much has been made of the interconnectedness of key July world events, such as Live 8, G8, the London bombings… as well as the latest space shuttle Discovery ‘carrying the torch’ around the end of the highly ‘ritualistic’ month. By June, in fact, I was already noticing that there was an ’8-8’ theme emerging, and as such in the ‘Contact’ article I discussed the curious coupling of Live 8 and G8 as well as the ‘bisected’ 8-day window found surrounding the beginning of July or specifically July 2 which was the ‘middle day’ of the year, connecting Live 8, G8, etc. Indeed Live 8 was blatantly ‘88’-driven, as seen in this picture.

And it was just yesterday that NASA made its official announcement regarding Discovery’s mission getting an extra day, meaning the space shuttle, assuming no more schedule changes, will return to earth on… 8/8. I must say I was expecting something like this. I had in fact been puzzled by the original date of 8/7 for the shuttle’s return because of the one-day ‘glitch’, not conforming to the 8-8 pattern. With NASA finally and conveniently pushing it back to highlight the ‘magic date’, I now feel more compelled to ‘preempt’ what’s developing here… by revealing the latest edition of the ‘balanced’ or ‘Judgment’ STR time code.

July 31

First up is this ‘balanced’ (equidistant) timeline scheme anchored by the Windsor Tower fire in Madrid marking the 2/13/05 midpoint. This event, you may recall, has been one of the most prominent halfway point-markers observed this year.

In this period, we find a couple of ‘balanced’ time codes that involve NASA, the Sun, London, Athens Olympics (closing ceremony), the Republican National Convention (which, like the NASA Genesis crash event, was a continuation of the Olympics’ hidden symbolism), and Discovery. These are all major Super Torch Ritual events discussed to death on this website.


The Olympic closing ceremony, 8/29/04, goes directly to July 31 this year, or today. This date is a key part of the 8/8-driven time code as we’ll see.

Here is another set of ‘balanced’ time codes based on a 7/2/05 midpoint date. July 2 is the ‘middle day’ of the year, hence the underlying theme of bisection is particularly stressed in this case. These timelines consistently employ key dates associated with the final ‘Judgment’ period of the Michael Jackson trial which began June 3 (deliberation) and concluded June 13 (verdict). We have already talked a lot about this June edition of the (‘tabloid’) ‘Judgment Day’-theme ‘ritual’.

Again the date 7/21, or the London bombings #2, is pinpointed, along with Discovery’s launch day. And, July 31.

Celestially, 7/31 appears to be highlighted by a Sun-Comet Tempel 1-Pluto alignment, though technically the alignment seems to be tightest on 7/30.

Update 8/1: Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd died on August 1 (was still 7/31 in some parts of the globe). This is amazingly fitting in that in my June 6 post I directly associated Michael Jackson’s ‘Judgment’ with the Saudi king’s death! Here is a quote from that 6/6 post:

...Michael Jackson would quite naturally become Osiris and a Sun-king.

I would also add that Saudi King Fahd’s hospitalization late May – now said to be in stable condition – could potentially play a role in this period as well. The oil connection certainly makes it relevant and his death, should it happen, would be quite expressive of the ‘Sun king/Babylon leader falling’ theme.

What’s more amazing, and I should have mentioned this before, is that 7/31-8/01 represents the all-important and STR-driven ‘antipodal’ 6-month point from… the sudden and first hospitalization of Pope John Paul II on 2/1/05 which was the definite beginning point of his ‘final days’ – the ‘fall of the Sun king’ (that I anticipated and followed very closely)!

Please note that by early morning of 7/30, I posted a special bulletin on this website, on the front page (see screenshot below), to announce the importance of the time around 7/31 for the STR.

August 8

Next up is a ‘balanced’ time code consisting exclusively of Discovery dates, including the projected 8/8 landing date. Two more time codes are shown below, highlighting the same August 8 point. (225/Venus is a major component of the STR, for those who don’t know.) [Update 8/1: Comet Tempel 1 figures here again as its crossing of the 270° ecliptic longitude marking the winter-solstice solar position near the Galactic Center in the Milky Way takes place August 8 as seen from the Sun.]



As you can see, yesterday’s curious announcement regarding the ‘discovery’ of the ‘10th planet’ (2003 UB313) – which came just hours after the discovery announced of another big, but smaller than Pluto, celestial body designated ’2003 EL61’ in our solar system (and many people didn’t seem to comprehend that there were two separate discoveries on the same day) – appears to be ‘ritualistically designed’ to reinforce the focus on 8/8.

Note also that ’225 days’ from December 8, ’04 (marked by the highly ‘ritualistic’ Damageplan concert shooting in Columbus) goes to the day of the London bombings #2, 7/21/05…


Deep Impact Countdown

Finally, let us combine the two key dates – 7/31 and 8/8 – which will create a new ‘balanced’ timeline. We find that this pinpoints as the third date… August 16 – none other than the ‘impact day’ or the ‘Great Flood day’ chosen in the film Deep Impact! (NASA’s Deep Impact was a big event in early July, of course.)

Not only that, these dates are separated by 8 days – i.e. two 8-day segments or… 8-8!

So a ‘Deep Impact sequence’ this is…


What does this mean?

At this point, what I can say about this is that, basically, there is a coherent pattern here creating a significant ‘portal’ for one or more major STR events. Whether or not August 8 will be the day – in terms of witnessing something more than Discovery’s return – is still a fluid situation I would imagine (especially, perhaps metaphysically speaking, now that the pattern has been ‘preempted’ in this little corner of the internet), but chances are that the above time code will be a major force, expressed overtly or not, behind what’s coming in August (and beyond).

There is a lot more to all this, a larger picture that I plan to talk about soon, so… The rabbit hole is deep indeed and, if you can handle it, we’re… going in. :)

I must say I was expecting something like this. I had in fact been puzzled by the original date of 8/7 for the shuttle’s return because of the one-day ‘glitch’, not conforming to the 8-8 pattern. With NASA finally and conveniently pushing it back to highlight the ‘magic date’, I now feel more compelled to ‘preempt’ what’s developing here… by revealing the latest edition of the ‘balanced’ or ‘Judgment’ STR time code.

July 31

First up is this ‘balanced’ (equidistant) timeline scheme anchored by the Windsor Tower fire in Madrid marking the 2/13/05 midpoint. This event, you may recall, has been one of the most prominent halfway point-markers observed this year.

In this period, we find a couple of ‘balanced’ time codes that involve NASA, the Sun, London, Athens Olympics (closing ceremony), the Republican National Convention (which, like the NASA Genesis crash event, was a continuation of the Olympics’ hidden symbolism), and Discovery. These are all major Super Torch Ritual events discussed to death on this website.

The Olympic closing ceremony, 8/29/04, goes directly to July 31 this year, or today. This date is a key part of the 8/8-driven time code as we’ll see.

Here is another set of ‘balanced’ time codes based on a 7/2/05 midpoint date. July 2 is the ‘middle day’ of the year, hence the underlying theme of bisection is particularly stressed in this case. These timelines consistently employ key dates associated with the final ‘Judgment’ period of the Michael Jackson trial which began June 3 (deliberation) and concluded June 13 (verdict). We have already talked a lot about this June edition of the (‘tabloid’) ‘Judgment Day’-theme ‘ritual’.

Again the date 7/21, or the London bombings #2, is pinpointed, along with Discovery’s launch day. And, July 31.

Celestially, 7/31 appears to be highlighted by a Sun-Comet Tempel 1-Pluto alignment, though technically the alignment seems to be tightest on 7/30.

Update 8/1: Saudi Arabia’s King Fahd died on August 1 (was still 7/31 in some parts of the globe). This is amazingly fitting in that in my June 6 post I directly associated Michael Jackson’s ‘Judgment’ with the Saudi king’s death! Here is a quote from that 6/6 post:

...Michael Jackson would quite naturally become Osiris and a Sun-king.

I would also add that Saudi King Fahd’s hospitalization late May – now said to be in stable condition – could potentially play a role in this period as well. The oil connection certainly makes it relevant and his death, should it happen, would be quite expressive of the ‘Sun king/Babylon leader falling’ theme.

What’s more amazing, and I should have mentioned this before, is that 7/31-8/01 represents the all-important and STR-driven ‘antipodal’ 6-month point from… the sudden and first hospitalization of Pope John Paul II on 2/1/05 which was the definite beginning point of his ‘final days’ – the ‘fall of the Sun king’ (that I anticipated and followed very closely)!

Please note that by early morning of 7/30, I posted a special bulletin on this website, on the front page (see screenshot below), to announce the importance of the time around 7/31 for the STR.

August 8

Next up is a ‘balanced’ time code consisting exclusively of Discovery dates, including the projected 8/8 landing date. Two more time codes are shown below, highlighting the same August 8 point. (225/Venus is a major component of the STR, for those who don’t know.) [Update 8/1: Comet Tempel 1 figures here again as its crossing of the 270° ecliptic longitude marking the winter-solstice solar position near the Galactic Center in the Milky Way takes place August 8 as seen from the Sun.]

As you can see, yesterday’s curious announcement regarding the ‘discovery’ of the ‘10th planet’ (2003 UB313) – which came just hours after the discovery announced of another big, but smaller than Pluto, celestial body designated ’2003 EL61’ in our solar system (and many people didn’t seem to comprehend that there were two separate discoveries on the same day) – appears to be ‘ritualistically designed’ to reinforce the focus on 8/8.

Note also that ’225 days’ from December 8, ’04 (marked by the highly ‘ritualistic’ Damageplan concert shooting in Columbus) goes to the day of the London bombings #2, 7/21/05…

Deep Impact Countdown

Finally, let us combine the two key dates – 7/31 and 8/8 – which will create a new ‘balanced’ timeline. We find that this pinpoints as the third date… August 16 – none other than the ‘impact day’ or the ‘Great Flood day’ chosen in the film Deep Impact! (NASA’s Deep Impact was a big event in early July, of course.)

Not only that, these dates are separated by 8 days – i.e. two 8-day segments or… 8-8!

So a ‘Deep Impact sequence’ this is…

What does this mean?

At this point, what I can say about this is that, basically, there is a coherent pattern here creating a significant ‘portal’ for one or more major STR events. Whether or not August 8 will be the day – in terms of witnessing something more than Discovery’s return – is still a fluid situation I would imagine (especially, perhaps metaphysically speaking, now that the pattern has been ‘preempted’ in this little corner of the internet), but chances are that the above time code will be a major force, expressed overtly or not, behind what’s coming in August (and beyond).

There is a lot more to all this, a larger picture that I plan to talk about soon, so… The rabbit hole is deep indeed and, if you can handle it, we’re… going in. :)

July 29, ’05 Discovery – Templar Revelation Discovery Docks at Space Station, Nine Astronauts Aboard ISS

And we now have…

.

Discovery 1 Time Coincidence Launch 10:39 am EDT Time same as final launch of Columbia (EST)
Docking at ISS 7:18 am EDT
(1118 GMT/London)

2 Knights Templar founded in 1118 AD in Jerusalem

3 Crew of nine enters ISS 8:50 am EDT Time same as 3 train explosions in London 7/7 (BST); Templars originally had nine members

So this is… fascinating, isn’t it? It appears the launch-time ‘coincidence’ of Discovery and Columbia noted before was just the beginning of a series of time-based clues, or in this case, confirmations of the symbolic pattern already detected.

I could not have made it clearer in my last two posts since July 15, especially the previous one, that the symbolism found encoded in July’s world events, including Discovery, had to do with the Holy Grail and naturally its traditional guardians, the Knights Templar. Discovery’s docking at the ISS, in particular, was emphasized as a highly ‘ritualistic’ Grail event. And we just saw a not-too-subtle manifestation of this theme.

The space shuttle docked with the space station at 7:18 am EDT which was 1118 GMT Greenwich Mean Time or in effect ‘London Time’. It was in 1118 AD that the Knights Templar – or ‘The Order of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon’ – was founded in Jerusalem, at the time having only nine members. Apart from Jesus’ and King Arthur’s time, this represents the ‘Ground Zero’ of the semi-historical saga of the ‘Holy Grail’ and/or its alter ego, ‘Ark’. The Templar knights have been popularly regarded as the ultimate protectors of the holy relic, a relic that they seem to have sought and found in the Holy Land while quietly excavating the Temple Mount, the site of the Dome of the Rock and Solomon’s Temple.

The combination of ‘Rock’ and ‘Temple’, along with the already discussed meteoric nature of the Grail/Ark (stone), strongly resonates with Comet Tempel 1, the comet that was was hit by NASA’s Deep Impact just weeks ago on July 4. Seen as ‘Temple 1’ the comet would represent ‘First Temple’ as in Solomon’s Temple from which the Templars took their name, as well as, via etymology, ‘Time 1’ as in Greenwich Mean Time which is the time marked by the Prime Meridian passing through London, and the time zone used by Discovery to mark the ‘1118’ point. London is also the historical center of Freemasonry which, particularly through its Scottish Rite branch, inherited a lot of Templar traditions.

I find it very crafty that London was independently highlighted through the entry of the nine astronauts – like the nine original Templars – into the ISS, by timing it to coincide with the recent high-impact time of the 7/7 London Underground bombings (8:50 am).

The Grail, Templars, London, Columbus, Discovery, ISS, Deep Impact/Tempel 1… These have all been shown on this site to coherently interact on a symbolic level to tell a ‘Grail story’. And we just had a clear enough ‘acknowledgment’ of this via the ‘sexual’ docking of the the space shuttle, using the pre-signaled time-driven code scheme.

It should be noted that the Templars are notable for their apparent Goddess worshipping – be it Mary Magdalene, Isis, Sophia… all of that combined. The Grail is interchangeable with the womb of the Goddess – the ‘cup’ that received the sacred seed… the ‘Royal Blood’, i.e. that which the Templar knights were supposedly tasked to protect with their lives.

So this makes the nine astronauts making contact with the space-age ‘Isis’ called ‘ISS’, at ‘1118’ GMT, very much Templar in nature indeed.

I should also note that Columbia, through its ‘Columbus’ association, carries an allusion to the medieval order as well. First of all, it is often speculated that the Templars, who were accomplished sailors, had already been visiting the New World before Columbus made his ‘First Contact’. And quite possibly he was motivated to make his transatlantic journey based on what he may have learned from the Templars, who were ahead of their time in many ways. Columbus, in fact, was married to the daughter of a former member of the ‘Knights of Christ’, or the Templar order in Portugal, and probably had access to his information. It is also telling that Columbus crossed the Atlantic under the Templar symbol of the red pattee cross.

Below are select excerpts from my two previous posts, July 15 & 27 – showing how I was zeroing in on the Grail/Templars theme for and before the Discovery-ISS ‘copulation’. [Key words highlighted.]

From July 15 ‘Initiating ‘Deep Impact Sequence’‘:

As ‘lapsit exillis’, the Holy Grail (‘Royal Blood’) is a symbolic form of ‘stone fallen from heaven’ – a reference to a meteorite, particularly in its capacity as a heavenly ‘seed’ as per the panspermia process. This notion is very much present in the ancient Egyptian version of the stone, the Benben Stone, the ultimate capstone of the pyramid/obelisk, closely associated with Heliopolis or the ‘City of the Sun’. It’s a ‘Sun Stone’ or ‘Fire Stone’, and all about seeding and copulation.

What Deep Impact highlighted by smashing into Comet Tempel 1 on the July-4th ‘torch day’ – or a ‘Grail day’ – was this theme of the ‘heavenly stone’. It was a very fitting and esoteric way of celebrating Lady Liberty i.e. the goddess Mary Magdalene-Isis-Venus.


The name ‘Tempel 1’ adds more depth to the symbolism. Seen as ‘Temple 1’, immediately bringing to mind the first Temple in Jerusalem built by Solomon, it alludes to the Ark of the Covenant which the Temple housed. [...]

‘Tempel 1’ is ‘Temple 1’ and further, as Alfredo pointed out to me, ‘Time 1’ since ‘temple’ and ‘time’ are probably etymologically related. (Interestingly, the Indo-European root tem- from which Latin templum or ‘temple’ may have derived, means ‘to cut, divide’.) And ‘Time 1’ would be the Prime Meridian, which officially regulates all time zones on the planet. Today, the international Prime Meridian is the longitude of the Royal Greenwich Observatory or, generally, London, where the 7/7 bombings event took place, coinciding with Tempel 1 crossing the ecliptic. [...]

So – three meridians. Paris, London, and Washington DC. Well, can it be more Masonic or Templar? These are Masonic/Templar ‘capitals’.

It is often remarked that the most significant geographical bridge connecting Freemasonry to the Knights Templar is Scotland where the Templars, under attack from the French monarch and the Church, supposedly took shelter, assisted by the sympathetic St. Clair/Sinclair family there. And of course Scotland is where the G8 summit was taking place around 7/7 this year… [...]

From July 27 ‘Discovery – ‘X-Rated’ In Space’:

The implication of the ‘discovery’ theme can already be detected through the ‘Grail’ symbolism attached to Lance and Discovery. Lance was Discovery – thus a Discovery of Lance, i.e. discovery of the ‘Grail’. [...]

‘Atlantis’ is still a vague concept and should not be taken too literally unless contextually justified. It does, however, reinforces the notion that some kind of momentous ‘discovery’ relatable to the Grail is coming in the near future. And this may interact with the fascinating symbolism of NASA’s Deep Impact discussed before. [...]

On July 28, Osiris/Discovery and Isis/ISS will copulate in space – seeding the womb of the goddess in orbit! It’s analogous to the union of Jesus and Mary Magdalene that is said to have produced the Royal Blood or the ‘Holy Grail’. It’s a ‘stargate’ event that will lead to the birth of the messianic offspring, Horus! [...]

July 27, ’05 Discovery – ‘X-Rated’ In Space [For background, see Contact: In the Ring of Fire and foregoing July posts starting with this July 1 post.]

Since my last post on July 15, there have been at least three key ‘Super Torch Ritual’ events which we need to talk about. One was the second bombings in London closely mimicking, though downgraded in intensity, the first wave on 7/7. And yes, my multicontextual decoding of the London events has now progressed forward significantly – and you’ll see that the surreal ‘Contact’ communication is continuing – as will be reported in another post or more likely in a full-length article.

In this post will be discussed primarily the other two recent STR developments. One of which was the conclusion of the Tour de France in Paris on July 24, Lance Armstrong winning his historic 7th consecutive Tour. The other, the successful launch of the space shuttle Discovery on July 26.

These events are ‘designed’ to interact with each other on a symbolic level to quietly transmit a certain ‘storyline’ that can be treated as an ‘omen’... i.e. information slightly out of phase with the linear flow of time. This is, in a sense, what constitutes ‘Contact’, and even though the medium for this ‘intertemporal communication’ is symbolism – which denotes coherent ‘multicontextuality’ – one can, if the etheric ‘Grail’ protocol is followed so to speak, extract shockingly precise and sophisticated information concerning an ‘impossible’ hidden design. It gets really surreally real and indeed ‘magical’. And this is the level of ‘Contact’ that this website is after.

But, for now, the following is a more general report on the intriguing symbolism found encoded in current world events…

Torch of Discovery

As noted before, we are observing an apparent non-stop torch-relay ‘ritual’ this summer, taking place at least since the Indy 500 back in May, where Danica was the designated torch-carrying Lucifer/Venus figure. Things got really active in July as we had a number of overlapping ‘torch rituals’ that were very intense, including the London bombings. But working quietly in the background, filling in all the gaps, was the Tour de France featuring Lance Armstrong as the ‘torch bearer’. Lance, like Indy’s Danica, was symbolically associated with the Moon (via Neil Armstrong) as well as Venus-Isis-Mary Magdalene (via the ‘tower of France’ symbolism and the lance-Grail connections etc. discussed before).

And it was already apparent that the ‘torch’ would subsequently be passed on to the space shuttle Discovery – inevitably part of the ‘Super Torch Ritual’ (STR). The STR more or less began with the 2004 Super Bowl ‘Nippegate’ on February 1, which was the anniversary of the shuttle Columbia disaster which in turn was also a major ‘omen’ in the larger ‘ritual complex’. Just as the fall of the Russian space station Mir symbolically prefigured 9/11, Columbia foreshadowed the disastrous US ‘Pax Americana’ invasion of Iraq. This pattern morphed into what I now call the Super Torch Ritual by the spring of 2004, and so you can see in this context that Discovery launched the other day – the first space shuttle to go up since Columbia – is heavily woven into all this.

NASA actually did a ‘cute’ thing here (thanks to a reader who brought this to my attention) by matching Discovery’s launch time to that of its doomed predecessor, Columbia.

.

Columbia STS-107 Discovery STS-114
Launch: 1/16/03 10:39am EST Launch: 7/26/05 10:39am EDT

And, as noted previously, the STS-114 mission patch is designed to quietly reinforce the underlying symbolism. This is done by:

Placing the shuttle outline – with the Columba constellation inside (Noah’s dove) – at the North Pole; almost certainly alluding the Great Flood theme. (See previous writings for more on the pole-Flood link.)

Incorporating the prevalent ‘great circle’ STR motif or the associated geodetic ‘doves-on-the-omphalos’ earth-grid symbolism.

A meridional great circle, signified by the shuttle’s orange ‘exhaust’, is astro-mythologically identified with the Promethean fire (=> Olympic torch).

The ‘Spear of Destiny’ also known as ‘Lance of Loginus’ is evoked by the ‘Lance’ victory that highlighted Paris – the city anchoring the Paris Zero Meridian which is esoterically the ‘Rose Line’ equatable with the Grail/Mary (interchangeable with the lance). The ‘Lance of Longinus’ can easily be interpreted as the ‘Rose-Line Longitude’ (i.e. Paris Meridian).

‘Acknowledging’ the London connection…, London being a Sumatran ‘Great Flood’ echo event in the STR context and marking the Greenwich Prime Meridian.

So it is only fitting that Lance Armstrong was a man of ‘Discovery’ this year. As you can see in these pictures, the main sponsor of Lance’s team was Discovery Channel… Lance was Discovery. And just two days after his historic triumph in Paris, the ‘meridional’ shuttle Discovery – embodying a space-age torch – blasted into outer space… The implication of the ‘discovery’ theme can already be detected through the ‘Grail’ symbolism attached to Lance and Discovery. Lance was Discovery – thus a Discovery of Lance, i.e. discovery of the ‘Grail’.

And the Grail is such a heavily multi-layered idea that we can only idly guess at what that could mean. But the ‘Grail’, in whatever form it chooses to manifest, cannot be anything trivial. By definition it has to be something hidden and of explosive importance.

Again, this is in a way about ‘Contact’ – a key developing theme already detected in the Super Torch Ritual. But that’s still a broad concept.

New World

Perhaps the unresolved problem with Discovery’s fuel tank gauge that forced NASA to cancel its first launch attempt back on July 13 may have already begun to yield a symbolic storyline pertaining to the ‘Grail’ may be.

Seemingly encoded in the Indy 500, if you recall, was the idea of ‘going out of gas’ – very possibly an allusion to the looming peak oil situation. Was Discovery’s fuel tank problem hinting at the same gloomy energy issues as well?

The United States is woefully slow to tackle the problem or to even openly acknowledge it. Seemingly the only high-profile politician actively addressing the issue is… Arnold Schwarzenegger, the governor of California elected to office through an unusual, circus-like ‘Total Recall’ election in 2003. It’s just that he has to, because California has already experienced a few years ago a little ‘preview’ of what the world will soon be facing. Indeed, it was the Enron-driven energy crisis in California that eventually led to the political demise of Gray Davis, the previous governor, and the rise of the ‘Governator’.

Schwarzenegger aka ‘the Olympian’ has been a major Torch Bearer in the STR as extensively discussed on this website since 2003. Through him, it was quickly noticed, there was a significant amount of reality-Hollywood crossover, the distinction between fiction and real-life rendered almost non-existent – and even that is a concept explored in Arnold’s 1993 film ‘Last Action Hero’.

The recall election was obviously ‘designed’ to resonate with ‘Total Recall’ (1990), which also deals with the subject of reality vs. false reality. He was ‘The Running Man’ (1982) in a ‘Total Recall’ election.

Total Recall, however, was also about Mars and controlling/liberating civilization-supporting resources. Air instead of oil/energy. And the character Schwarzenegger plays is a man who liberates Mars by activating a hidden ‘alien’ technology underground that releases a ‘flood’ of atmosphere onto the surface of the planet, quickly making it a naturally breathable place.

Mars/space, Contact, crisis and solving of dwindling natural resources… These are key components of the emerging real-life storyline.

Now, the combination of the Great Flood and idea of Contact cannot be separated from the mythological legacy of the ‘sons of God’ and the ‘giants’ or the Nephilim told in the Book of Genesis and such. These heavenly ‘alien’ beings mated with humans on this planet, it is written, and created a hybrid ‘fallen angel’ race, the Nephilim. The story goes that their apparent ‘corruption’ then led to the Great Flood that was intended to cleanse the earth of the bad seeds.

The story of the Grail or the Royal Blood concerns the ‘underground stream’, often thought to be an allusion to a hidden, ‘messianic’ bloodline coming through Mary Magdalene. She is a Venus, the embodiment of womanhood (with emphasis on sexuality) and thus also an Eve. Eve’s partaking of the forbidden ‘fruit’ thanks to the serpent’s encouragement in the Garden of Eden supposedly initiated the ‘fall of man’ – very much comparable to the Nephilim story. Indeed, the ‘fallen angels’ are closely associated with the serpent and it doesn’t take much imagination to see that the serpent is very phallic in appearance, and thus its interaction with Eve in the Garden had sexual connotations.

So, it could easily be said that the ‘Grail’ has to do with the union of heaven and earth (which still has many levels of meaning).

It therefore becomes appropriate for space missions, like space shuttles, to express this theme, by in effect bridging heaven and earth. The fall of such space vehicles – e.g. Mir, Columbia, Genesis – is particularly expressive of the same theme for obvious reasons.

‘Heaven’, though, can also easily refer to the ‘ether’ or the theoretical non-physical dimensional realm – or ‘hyperspace’. Physicality is ‘earth’ and hyperspace is ‘heaven’. Uniting the two, as per the Grail concept, would involve interdimensional energy transfer – which may be called Zero Point Energy that is driven by ‘Hyperdimensional Physics’. A revolutionary way, if realized, of generating and controlling energy.

And wouldn’t you know it, hyperdimensinoal physics (HDP) apart from the official academic approach, has been popularized by Richard C. Hoagland via his work on… Mars! The new ‘alien’ physics, claims Hoagland, has much to do with tetrahedral geometric configuration (19.5 deg. etc.) that was found encoded in the apparent ancient ‘monuments of Mars’ at Cydonia.

And there we have our ‘Grail’ – at least one aspect of it that’s relevant to this this period. It’s Total Recall time. There is a civilization-threatening energy crisis developing, and to overcome it we’ll ultimately need this ‘Grail’. We need to start intelligently interacting with ‘heaven’ or hyperspace.

But as made abundantly clear in Grail romances, the ultimate discovery has to be earned. The underlying storyline implies that we would have to prove ourselves worthy of acquiring the great power. It’s the ultimate challenge… the ultimate ‘game’. This is of course the same concept I have applied to the Contact theme. And it’s essentially the same thing. Unwise kids shouldn’t be playing with fire, to put it another way.

And so we have in this period – the last segment of the current age according to the Mayan calendar – the theme of ‘Judgment’ going, which is everywhere these days. This is, in a poetic sense, ‘Judgment Day’ – the very subject of Schwarzenegger’s Terminator movie series.

Contact From Atlantis

The Super Torch Ritual, I will say again, appears to be this ‘Contact game’ – Enki’s quiet inquiry or ‘test’. And like the diametrically opposing tones of Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounter of the Third Kind and War of the Worlds, it can be constructive or destructive… It seems it ultimately depends on what we do. How much we can control our egos. We are being forced into difficult situations, and the ‘Watchers’ are watching how we behave, so to speak.

Are we worthy of moving into the realm of hyperspace? Are we going to be allowed to go through the ‘stargate’? Are we wise enough to handle the ‘fire’? Are we intellectually and spiritually fit to go to Mars, the fire planet? Or are we a hopeless, failed experiment?

In the worst case scenario, we can imagine, it would be termination time for human civilization by a ‘Great Flood’. If the ‘hard drive’ is corrupted beyond repair, reformatting the disk is the necessary action to take to restore a fresh state (‘Eden’). The corruption has be to dealt with before it can spread via gateways.

And it would be only a matter of allowing our self-destruction which we are very much capable of doing right now. The far-reaching effects of Peak Oil alone, for instance, would be enough to trigger a sudden fall of the current civilization on this planet. So, in the end, if we are to fall, we will probably do so by foolishly falling off a cliff which need not happen.

This combination of exotic technology and the termination of a civilization brings to mind the legend of Atlantis. Often associated with mysterious monuments such as those at Giza that seem to hint at some kind of gravity-control – i.e. hyperspatial – knowledge, the supposed antediluvian high civilization was destroyed in a ‘Great Flood’-like cataclysm. In this scenario, the survivors of the Atlantean termination event, in possession of great knowledge, correspond to the ‘fallen angels’/Nephilim and the ‘underground stream’ passing the ‘torch’ of knowledge/seed forward under the surface of the mainstream postdiluvian ‘history’. And with them would be the ‘Holy Grail’ that is the knowledge of how to harness hyperdimensional energy. And they would be the ‘Watchers’ – presumably in the process of making ‘Contact’ with those ‘above surface’ at this time in a repeat of the story of Enki-Saturn-Prometheus covertly communicating in non-specialized ways with those who can ‘hear his voice’, informing them of the coming ‘Flood’ and how to ‘build an ark’ or a ‘stargate’.


As detailed in the Book of Enoch, the Watchers – or the Sumerian ‘Annunaki’ – themselves were divided into two basic factions – the rebellious faction and the faction composed of the rest. So the story can get quite complex, and as everything else it has many levels and taking it too literally would be a sure way to get into a ‘trap’. (Same with the Bible and such.)

But, essentially, it’s about connecting two worlds that are normally separated – heaven and earth, the ‘Watchers’ and humans, the unconscious and consciousness, hyperspace and our four-dimensional space-time. And perhaps it could be said that opening portal between the two realms is analogous to opening the water-gate and, if not done very carefully, that will lead to a ‘Great Flood’ or great destruction. The gating process would have to be tight controlled or the newly tapped energy would break the ‘dam’ and destroy everything in its path – just as the careless union of the ‘sons of God’ and ‘daughters of men’, i.e. heaven and earth, gave rise to the terrible ‘giants’ (Nephilim) that was followed by the Great Flood.

So I would view ‘Atlantis’ as basically a code word for the period around the time of a civilization figuring out how to access ‘the other side’... how to reach heaven. The rise of our space program in the 20th century, therefore, has made us an ‘Atlantean’ culture already. We’re already building the ‘Tower of Babel’. And the Tower, like the rise of the Nephilim, is traditionally countered by a ‘Judgment’ event – the project blocked by a higher power. Interestingly, the modern ‘Tower of Babel’ in NYC the modern ‘Babylon’, the WTC twin towers, were destroyed in 2001 – the year associated with space via ’2001: A Space Odyssey’, a story about humans finding ‘monoliths’ that represent that which advances human evolution. And its sequel, ’2010: The Year We Make Contact’, is is blatantly about Contact. The 2001-2010 timeframe here gives us an important storyline context as well.

It could be inferred that the 2001-2010 period is designed to signify in the storyline a ‘gateway’ – or when the rising ‘Atlantis’ is ‘judged’. A time of ‘Contact’ can easily transformed into a time of the ‘Great Flood’ as we’ve seen. So… again the implication would be that it’s an intense ‘test period’.

2005, and perhaps 2006 as well, is the halfway point of the ‘Judgment’ period, important especially in the context of the 1998-2012 Mayan ‘end of time’ segment often discussed here. The notion of midpoint – applicable also to Peak Oil – denotes ‘balance’ and thus also the idea of ‘justice’, related to ‘judgment’. It is in this context that current world events, particularly those of June-July (the halfway point of the middle year), become symbolically meaningful.

So for instance, it certainly seems more than happy coincidence that the mission patch of the space shuttle Discovery is very ‘Atlantean’.


The blue ring around the blackened earth makes it look like Saturn – the god/planet closely associated with the mythology of Atlantis. ‘Ogygia’, another name for the antediluvian world, for instance, corresponds to the resting place of Saturn-Kronos (‘Ogygion’) that is apparently beyond space-time (i.e. hyperspace). And the ring’s crossing point with the orange ‘Spear/Lance’ meridian is marking the Caribbean which is not only where Columbus (=> Columbia/Columba) made First Contact with the New World but also a region popularly thought to have been where Atlantis once occupied.

Along with the Promethean fire and Flood allusions detected in the insignia, it resonates strongly with the underlying symbolic theme of this period, with emphasis on Atlantis. And ‘Atlantis’ is of course the name of one of the space shuttles. In fact, Atlantis (STS-121) is to go up right after Discovery, already scheduled for a mission in September.

So, we have here ‘Discovery (of) Atlantis’. A key symbolic context to keep in mind in this period then…

14th Piece of Osiris

‘Atlantis’ is still a vague concept and should not be taken too literally unless contextually justified. It does, however, reinforces the notion that some kind of momentous ‘discovery’ relatable to the Grail is coming in the near future. And this may interact with the fascinating symbolism of NASA’s Deep Impact discussed before. Through Hollywood, indeed, ‘Deep Impact’ is about a ‘Great Flood’ and heaven and earth coming together…



NASA’s Deep Impact mission, on a ‘torch day’ (July 4), struck a heavenly rock called Comet Tempel 1, bringing to life the same heaven-earth unification theme. The heavenly rock would signify the ‘Grail stone’ (Eschenbach’s lapsit exillis, ‘stone fallen from heaven’) which is also the omphalos, Benben, and philosopher’s stone – i.e. essentially meteorites. In the ancient Egyptian context, the stone (Benben) is the seed and identified with the fire-bird phoenix which in turn is identified with the soul of Osiris, the god of the underworld and resurrection. Osiris is at the heart of the ancient Egyptian mythology and was closely associated with the Zep Tepi or ‘First Time’ – an Eden-like period, comparable to Atlantis, that ended long before the time of the Egyptians. Osiris is also a form of Saturn-Prometheus as well as messianic figures like Jesus and such.

In other words, Osiris pretty much embodies not only the Grail/Atlantean symbolism attached to the idea of ‘discovery’ we have going here but also the entire Super Torch Ritual. Indeed, his death-birth resurrection cycle expressed by the phoenix as well as Osiris’ death always coming with the birth of his son Horus – thus constantly moving between the two realms (this world and the ‘other side’) – is evocative of the ‘Grail’/‘stargate’ technology that unites normal space-time and hyperspace.

And the ‘intelligence’ responsible for the STR design did seem to have encoded Osiris into the Discovery ‘ritual’. Here is what Etemenankian Linnie astutely observed:

[...] I think this is important…

‘Ancient phallus unearthed in cave’

I strongly feel that this discovery being announced now is a coded message indicating that the ‘lost phallus of Osiris’ (the ‘talisman of Set’) has been found and that now Horus can be conceived. Odd how it was announced on the eve of the launching of Discovery!

What really convinces me is this paragraph:

‘The Tübingen team working Hohle Fels already had 13 fractured parts of the phallus in storage, but it was only with the discovery of a 14th fragment last year that they were able finally to work out the “jigsaw”.’

In the myth about the death of Osiris, he was torn into 14 pieces. Isis managed to find 13 of them, but not the 14th piece, which was unfortunately the all-important phallus. Thoth/Enki provided one for her to use according to certain versions. But can you see the connection, ‘the discovery of the 14th fragment!’ In other words, they are saying that they have found and are in possession of the lost phallus of Osiris


I saw that this storyline jived perfectly with the STS-114 insignia – the phallic depiction of the shuttle (and the shuttle itself is already very phallic) and the eye-catching red circle replacing the letter ‘o’ in the name ‘Noguchi’ (in the ring). The latter is a clear enough reference to Horus who embodies the rising sun, as Noguchi is from Japan or the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’. The conception of Horus through Osiris’ 14th piece indeed.


The fact that it was the BBC headquartered in London that prominently featured the seemingly obscure phallus story may be another clue here. For instance, we see that fourteen days separates London’s two near-identical bombing, July 7 and 21, targeting London Underground whose symbol is seemingly mimicked by the STS-114 patch. These bombings preceded the ‘meridional’ STR events of Lance’s triumph in Paris and the launch of Discovery, resonating with London having the function of anchoring the Prime Meridian. Further, according to Plutarch (‘On Isis and Osiris’), Osiris’ murder took place on the 17th day of the third month. The ancient Egyptians month was exactly 30 days, which means Osiris’ death came on the 77th day of the year. ‘Seven seven’ is of course none other than the numeric signature of London’s 7/7 bombings (and two sevens make 14).

The ‘77’ connection additionally supports my previous interpretation that London 7/7 carried an allusion to another major meridian, that of Washington DC (‘District of Columbia’), which is 77 deg. West. This particular meridian, in fact, seems to be signified by the orange ‘exhaust’ of Discovery in the Discovery insignia.


We further note that there were exactly 14 days from July 13, the original target Discovery launch day, to July 26, when the shuttle was actually launched.

So… intriguing symbolism all around. But here is what’s coming up that’s just so ‘ritualistic’... and ‘X-rated’. :)

Discovery, representing the Osirian phallus or the ‘14th piece’, is scheduled to dock with the International Space Station or ISS on July 28. Well, try pronouncing ‘ISS’ without making it sound like ‘Isis’. The difference is negligible. The ISS, then, is Osiris’ sister-wife Isis, the one who magically resurrected Osiris and got herself impregnated using the… ‘14th piece’. Get the drift?


On July 28, Osiris/Discovery and Isis/ISS will copulate in space – seeding the womb of the goddess in orbit! It’s analogous to the union of Jesus and Mary Magdalene that is said to have produced the Royal Blood or the ‘Holy Grail’. It’s a ‘stargate’ event that will lead to the birth of the messianic offspring, Horus!

What that conception and eventual birth of Horus will prompt to manifest down here on earth as per ‘as above, so below’ is an important question for us to ponder. For now, consider this: the ‘Grail’ impregnation is analogous to the heaven-earth union initiated by the ‘sons of God’ that gave rise to the hybrid, ‘hero’ race of the Nephilim. Horus – related to the term ‘hero’, denoting a ‘race between men and the gods’ – corresponds to the Nephilim. (This same concept, by the way, is also ‘encoded’ in the latest Harry Potter – ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ – release July 16, which as discussed previously is a key component of the July STR ‘communication’.) And that traditionally leads to the Great Flood. It could even be said that Isis’ ‘water breaking’ at the time of the birth of Horus would be expressive of the Flood.

Generally speaking, then, we can expect some kind of ‘Deep Impact’ in the coming months. I’ll of course have much more on this later – including the decoding of the London events.

“Chinese calendars reveal ancient science”:http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2005-08/03/content_3302258.htm

www.chinaview.cn 2005-08-03 09:13:09

BEIJING, Aug. 3 — Researchers from across the globe have been looking into the history of science in ancient China to help illuminate events taking place in the world today. Nathan Sivin, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania in the United States, looked into China’s Season-granting calendar (Shoushi Li) reform of 1280, which took place in early years of the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) established by China’s Mongol rulers. In the mid 13th century, the then calendar Great Enlightenment system (Daming Li) was woefully inaccurate. Yet according to Sivin, the idea to reform the calendar was not spawned from this inefficient time keeping. For the Mongols, technical skill implied spiritual superiority. As rulers, they strove to “mobilize and monopolize the spiritual forces of the realm” to throw more weight behind their rule in China. As early as 1251, Liu Bingzhong (1216-1274), senior consultant to the emperor Khublai Khan (1215-1294), suggested reforming the calendar as a way of legitimizing imperial Mongol authority. In order to revise the Daming Li, Khublai Khan brought together not only Chinese astronomers but also Muslim scholars from Arabia and Persia, areas also occupied by the Mongols at the time. They wanted a second opinion on the reading of heavenly signs and portents. Although Islamic astronomers such as Persian scholar Jamal al-Din (1267-1291) had by that time started using sophisticated observation and computing techniques and equipment, those who did the lion’s share of the planning and running of the project were Chinese. Some of the Chinese scholars taking part in the programme were not only astronomers but also scholars of Confucianism, which dominated Chinese intellectual thought at the time. Only they knew how to effectively interpret the new calendar to the intellectuals. With the efforts of the Chinese and Islamic scholars, and with huge investment from the government, the Season-granting calendar was successfully established, which remained, with a little adjustment, the main calendar in China until the Western system arrived in the late 19th century. The reforming of the calendar was considered a dialogue between humankind and heaven in ancient China. It was not a singular event, however. Other natural sciences also had political and ethical significance in the country at the time, according to Sun Xiaochun, a history of science professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In his thesis, Sun points out that in ancient China the legitimacy of rulers, their method of rule and the self-evaluation and self-adjustment of that governance all originated from nature. “For example, a Chinese calendar was not just an arrangement of days, months and years in numbered sequences, but also a complete mathematical technique for calculating the ephemeris of the sun, moon and planets,” Sun said. Based on such an understanding of nature, laws like those protecting seedlings or animal cubs were laid down in ancient China. “Do not kill cubs because this will destroy the natural harmony,” it is often said in ancient Chinese technical books.Enditem

Secret societies abound in France. Since the French revolution there has been a strong divide between Republicans and Royalists with all kinds of societies supporting various claimants to the throne. Most them seem to have the support of one catholic group or another, not all of which appear to be strictly Roman in their beliefs. One in particular, the Priory of Sion, has claimed to be the guardian of the secret of Rennes-le-Château.

Nicolas Poussin, the father of French Classical painting, is said to have hidden messages relating to a great secret hidden in the area in some of his paintings, specifically, in “Les Bergers d’Arcadie” (The Shepherds of Arcadia).

In 1985 a huge pentagram was found in the landscape, its geometric points marked by ancient sites which now have mostly Christian churches on them. This figure was found to be part of an incredibly complicated geometrical pattern, requiring a very sophisticated knowledge of mathematics, laid out thousands of years ago, probably before the birth of civilisation as we know it.
Whatever it was that abbé Saunière found, it kept him in comfort for most of his life. However, his housekeeper and lifelong friend, Marie Denarnaud, was the only person he confided in, and both of them took the secret with them to their graves.

Templars – Cathars – the Holy Grail – Mary Magdalene – the Tomb of Jesus – The Priory of Sion – the Devil’s Treasure – Solomon’s Treasure – the Ark of the Covenant – the Royal Line of Kings – all these and more have been suggested as his find.

This is a real treasure hunt – with maps, parchments, pictures, lost wills, messages on gravestones and the Language of the Birds to lead you along the way – up the garden path half the time! – to what?

What did abbé Saunière find? Did he find anything? Was he supported by some rich, clandestine patron or secret society? Or was he himself part of the mystery, as indicated by the curious acts of homage to his body immediately after his death?

“Japan embarks on journey to center of the Earth to study birth of life”:http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20050727/sc_afp/sciencejapanusquake_050727171954

TOKYO (AFP) – Japanese scientists are preparing to dig deep inside the Earth for the first time in human history to unlock the mysteries of life in an attempt to figure out how civilization came to be and how to save it.

ADVERTISEMENT

The researchers will collect the first samples of the Earth’s mantle for clues on the primitive organisms that were the forerunners of life — and study tectonic plates that could shake the planet’s foundations.

“Deep underground — under high pressure, high temperature, with little air — is the environment similar to the time when the Earth was created? By collecting geological samples from there, we might find biological beings that might have existed when the Earth was born,” says Jun Fukutomi, an official with the Center for Deep Earth Exploration (CDEX).

“Samples of the Earth’s mantle and crust will also tell us how the Earth’s climate has changed in the past. Analysis of these data should give us clues as to how the Earth’s environment will change in the future,” he says.

The government-backed CDEX will start training of the crew and scientists once the 57,500-ton, deep-sea drilling vessel Chikyu is delivered at the end of July.

Chikyu, which means the Earth in Japanese, will embark on experimental voyages later this year.

The 60-billion-yen (535 million-dollar) ship will begin full-scale drilling around the end of September 2007 at waters off the Pacific coast of Japan with an initial project to dig some 3,500 meters into a seabed that is some 2,500 meters under the ocean surface.

The initial project will study the tectonic plate as it is an area where seismologists expect giant quakes within the next several decades. Japan accounts for a quarter of the world’s major tremors.

A deeper understanding of how earthquakes function “may help us forecast future quakes”, Fukutomi says.

Eventually, researchers hope to send Chikyu’s drill pipes down to the sea bottom 4,000 meters underwater and dig 7,000 meters from there.

“Up until now, scientists have dug down for about 2,000 meters. That’s like only scratching the surface,” Fukutomi says.

“This time, we hope to go deeper. Layers of sediment should tell us climate changes that the Earth has experienced and the component of the atmosphere at the time,” Fukutomi says.

The deep sea drilling project is a part of the multi-national Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, which is led by Japan and the United States, with participation from China and 12 EU nations.

Oceanic drilling is preferred over land drilling because the crust at the sea bed is thinner and allows for deeper digs into the crust and mantle.

Chikyu uses technology that exists for oil drilling, but is specially equipped to prevent damage from sudden bursts if it accidentally strikes oil or gas reserves.

The drilling ship uses the satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS) to stay in one position.

Chikyu is also rigged with a system that keeps itself and its drill pipes stable by adjusting to the rolling motions from the drilling and waves.

The ship also carries a laboratory that can shut down the effects of the Earth’s magnetic fields to allow better observations.

The completion of the drilling vessel is a big step forward for scientists, Fukutomi says.

The researchers will eagerly look at the microbes found under the ocean floor because they may be key in studying how life began.

“We may take a step to better understanding the origin of life. They (the organisms) may be somehow related to the evolution of the Earth. This is one of the most important life science projects,” he says.

“We hope this project will be the start of a new era for life science.”

*“July 15, ’05 Initiating ‘Deep Impact Sequence’”:http://www.goroadachi.com/etemenanki/blog-05july.htm#073105

At this moment Comet Tempel 1 should be just a little past the point of crossing the plane of Mars’ orbit (or slightly outside of it) – going below the planetary path.

This is the comet that NASA’s Deep Impact ‘impactor’ struck last Monday, July 4, followed by it crossing the Mars orbital path (viewed from directly above) and the ecliptic July 5-7, which coincided with our key date July 6 and the July-7th London bombings.

A key context here is that right now the ‘torch’ of the ‘Super Torch Ritual’ (STR) continuously being passed forward is being carried by the Tour de France in the background (July 2-24) and in the foreground by NASA’s space shuttle returning to space for the first time since the highly symbolic Columbia disaster on February 1, 2003, which was a major ‘omen’ in the context of the STR. Columbia being analogous to Columba (constellation) the Dove of Noah carrying a olive branch in its beak, it prefigured among other things – such as the disaster of the ‘Pax Americana’-driven US Iraq invasion and the rise of a new pope (prophetically dubbed ‘the glory of the olive’) – the prevalent ‘Great Flood’ theme, quite literally manifesting last December in the form of a catastrophic southeast-Asia quake and tsunami.

It’s not just the original target launch date of Discovery, July 13, that is ‘ritualistic’ here but it’s also the fact that mid-July marks the 6-month point from the landing of Huygens on one of Saturn’s moon Titan. This was on January 14 and so calendrically around July 14 is the exact opposite/‘antipodal’ point – an important theme in the currently active ‘time codes’ closely tracked on this site.


Saturn is the ‘lord of the ring’, Prometheus the fire-giver, as well as Enki the savior of ‘Noah’; and in Greek mythology the Titans are the elder gods led by Saturn-Cronus who opposed, along with Gigantes (giants) and such, the younger Olympian gods led by Zeus. In the sense that Saturn was the ruler of the Golden Age, his fall in the great war would easily signify the end of that age and beginning of the next one, the Silver Age, ruled by Zeus.

Technically speaking, it is the Bronze Age that is explicitly described as being destroyed by a great flood. But conceptually each shift of the ages takes place through a large- scale destruction analogous to the Great Flood. It is therefore fitting that the Titans/Gigantes could correspond to the ‘giants’ in the Book of Genesis (the Nephilim) as their very brief appearance is as the source of great corruption that directly led to the biblical Great Flood.

So attached to the space shuttle Discovery, through timing, is the same idea of the Great Flood expressed previously by Columbia.

But there is more to the symbolism…

The modern Great Flood last December was a monster earthquake near Sumatra generating a major tsunami, killing over 240,000 people. Sumatra’s ancient name, Swarna Dwipa, means ‘Isle of Gold’ and hence its massive destruction was aptly symbolic of the end of the Golden Age expressed by the war between the Titans and the Olympians – traditionally known as ‘Titanomachy’. It is also easily interchangeable with the destruction of the legendary ancient civilization Atlantis.

Now, Atlantis – known to us mostly through Plato’s writings – is usually thought of as having its city arranged in the shape of concentric circles, which in this context brings to mind the alchemical symbol for gold (as in the ‘Golden Age’ and ‘Isle of Gold’) which is a circle with a dot at its center. And quake shockwaves, or the waves of a tsunami, are typically depicted as concentric circles…




There is also the geodetic ‘great circle’ expressing the same motif, which is now a major theme that has emerged through Sumatra.

This STR ‘signature’ configuration was first detected at the closing ceremony of the Athens Olympics late- August last year which featured a big enigmatic spiral reminiscent of the beginning point of the ‘Yellow Brick Road’ in The Wizard of Oz.


It was then followed by U2’s new CD with their ‘Vertigo’ video, and the Damageplan concert shooting ‘ritual’ in Columbus, Ohio containing unmistakable Wizard of Oz references. The latter encoded a geodetic ‘message’ and was eventually decoded to pinpoint the epicenter of Sumatra – weeks before it happened – through the use of great circles. Columbus – a name related to Columba/Columbia – is exactly 180 degrees away in longitude from the Sumatra epicenter for starters, and Damageplan was originally (more or less) a band called Pantera to evoke in this context ‘Pan Terra’ or ‘whole earth’. In other words, a planetary-scale geodetic puzzle disclosing a ‘damage plan’ was hiding just beneath the surface. (All this stuff is extensively discussed here.)



U2, and particularly Bono, is one of the prominent pop-culture figures heavily woven into the ‘Super Torch Ritual’ along with other musicians such as Paul McCartney. We’ve already discussed the symbolic significance of McCartney’s major presence at the Live 8 concert in London July 2, but U2 was there as well and had an equally important and perhaps more relevant presence. In fact, U2/Bono opened the concert in London with McCartney, performing together. Again, as you can see in the picture below, the concentric-circle theme was hard to miss.

Live 8 was one of the major events considered embodying a 6-month echo stemming from the Sumatra ‘Great Flood’, just as mid-July represents an echo window for Huygens’ Titan landing, which too is closely associated with the Flood as we’ve seen.

How fitting is it, then, that brought onboard to the Saturnian moon was, among many other scientific instruments, a concentric-circle symbol in the form of the Music2Titan logo? (And, yes, it has to do with music.) Compare it with U2’s ‘Vertigo’ video screenshot above. The resemblance is uncanny, especially given the shared underlying context.

The symbolism gets thicker: While the ancient tale of Titanomachy (the Titan-Olympian war) has survived only in Hesiod’s Theogony, there is a passing reference to a lost work on Titanomachy in an essay falsely attributed to Plutarch called De Musica or ‘On Music’! (Music again…) Here is the relevant passage:

‘About the same time, Heraclides says, Linus of Euboea was composing dirges, Anthes of Anthedon in Boeotia was composing hymns, and Pieros of Pieria his poems about the Muses, while Philammon of Delphi recounted in songs the wanderings of Leto and the birth of Artemis and Apollo, and was the first to establish choruses at the temple of Delphi. Thamyris, a Thracian by birth, sang more melodiously [1132b] and with a more beautiful voice than anyone else in those days, which led him to compete, so the poets say, in a contest against the Muses. He is also said to have composed a piece on the war of Titans against the gods. [...]’ [On Music, 1132a-b]

So there is a very coherent pattern here and woven into it is the concept of music for some reason. Why music? I have already pointed out its connection to the idea of ‘Contact’, interacting for instance with the film War of the Worlds released late June. But there is likely more to this… which we won’t go into here.

Now, back to Discovery – its launch was canceled on July 13 due to a technical glitch involving the fuel tank and NASA originally stated that the earliest the shuttle would be ready again was Saturday, July 16, before pushing it back to Sunday, as reported yesterday. And now it looks more like the launch will come sometime next week. If it comes sometime between July 19-21 as it seems likely (7/19 being my first pick), we’ll have July 16-17 as the ‘ritualistically’ important midpoint as counted from July 13. And there is a reason I’m focusing on these dates, as mentioned briefly in my July 5 post:

If viewed laterally, Comet Tempel 1 will go under Mars’ orbital path/plane on July 13 – the target day for the launch of NASA’s space shuttle Discovery. July 16 is another key date but I’ll discuss that one in another post. This is just the tip of the iceberg. [emphasis added]

On July 16-17:

Mars reaches perihelion, when the Red Planet is closest to the Sun in its orbit. (7/16-17)

There is a Sun-Mercury-Comet Tempel 1 alignment. (7/16-17)

!The Tour de France cyclists cross the Paris Meridian (‘Rose Line’) on July 16. They crossed it previously on July 6 – another key date – and they will cross it again on July 21.

The latest Harry Potter book, ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’, is released on July 16.

Harry Potter? Yes, Harry Potter – I’m not kidding. :) Now, just think about it: it’s a perfect pop-culture vehicle through which a ‘hidden signal’ can be transmitted to anyone out there who can potentially detect and decipher such hidden communication. It’s like The Wizard of Oz and The Da Vinci Code – a very popular mysterious and imaginative story that bridges this and the ‘other’ world. It’s the ‘looking-glass’ that enables substantive ‘transdimensional’ communication, so to speak. Compared to other kinds of stories which can be viewed as slow modems, it’s a high-speed broadband connection ideal for high-voltage multicontextual information-seeding that is ‘Contact’.

Bringing Harry Potter into this seems so silly because it’s so pop culture, so much so that even the Pope has commented on it, but actually that is exactly why it’s a great candidate to be used as a ‘Contact’ medium (and I’m definitely not saying that the author of the Harry Potter series is aware of such a scheme or anything like that). The more creativity involved, the more ‘interdimensional’ the product becomes. It turns into, in a way, a ‘magnet’ for ‘coincidences’ and such.

Now, just to give the reader a taste of what’s going on with Harry Potter within the STR context, let me mention the following…

Geographically, the 7/7 London bombings took place generally along the Circle Line of the London Underground. There were three train explosions and two of which were traveling on the Circle Line. In ‘Circle Line’ we already detect the familiar motif of circles. But there is also another major STR theme present here, that of ‘midpoint’, closely associated with the ‘Judgment Day’ concept in the STR scheme. All three trains that were bombed went through King’s Cross, and the station actually marks the exact halfway point between the two trains that went in opposite directions on the Circle Line (they left King’s Cross at about the same time).


The third train, by the way, was #311. Yes, that ‘Judgment Day’ number! If you recall, ‘311’ was already found to interact heavily with the window surrounding the 7/7 bombings. What are the odds…

So King’s Cross represents the all-important midpoint. In Harry Potter books, King’s Cross is where students get on the ‘Hogwarts Express’ to go to the ‘other world’ of magic and wizardry. In other words, it’s analogous to Alice’s looking-glass or Dorothy’s twister. It’s the ‘dimensional gateway’.

Fittingly, the Hogwarts Express uses a secret platform ’9¾’ between platform 9 and 10, invisible to normal humans. ’9¾’ is 9.75 or, treating it as a time reference (sexagesimal system), 9 and 45 – giving us 9:45.

The three trains exploded almost simultaneously at 8:50 am. But there was one more bombing – that of a double-decker bus – that came nearly an hour later. (The plan may have been for the bus to explode at King’s Cross but the bus was following a diversion from its normal route.) The time was… 9:47 – practically the same as that magical ‘ 9¾’ time.

Combining these and other factors, the 7/7 bombings that disrupted the first full-day session of the G8 summit in Scotland was, in a way, a ‘stargate’ event, as well as ‘Contact’. Incidentally, as a couple of readers pointed out to me, ‘G8’ can be read as ‘G-eight’ or ‘Gate’.

There is more to the apparent ‘Harry Potter cipher’, of course. But pertinent here for the time being is the fact that the new Harry Potter will be released on July 16. A planetary alignment involving Comet Tempel 1 coming up July 16-17… And because Tempel 1 already time-stamped ~July 7 by crossing the ecliptic at that time, the comet in effect becomes a bridge connecting the 7/16 release of Harry Potter and the 7/7 bombings.

Well, as you know, Deep Impact’s celestial fireworks show was back on July 4 – Independence Day, which was obviously a major ‘torch day’, signified by the torch of the Statue of Liberty. Lady Liberty in turn is a form of Mary Magdalene, Venus, or Isis… i.e. generally ‘the Goddess’. And Grail tradition holds that Mary Magdalene brought the ‘Royal Blood’ (= ‘Rose Line’ or ‘Holy Grail’) to southern France sometime after the crucifixion of Jesus. France is exactly where the Statue of Liberty – and the spirit of liberty – came from as a gift.

Mary Magdalene is also invoked by the Tour de France that started on the ‘middle day’ of the year, July 2 – the same day as 1) Live 8’s ‘Long Walk To Justice’ targeting G8, 2) Venus Williams winning Wimbledon in London, 3) Danica Patrick, another torch-carrying ‘Venus’/‘morning star’ figure, winning pole position for an Indy race in Kansas (where ‘Dorothy’ lived), and 4) the second anniversary of the release of Terminator 3 featuring ‘the Olympian’ Schwarzenegger in which was found encoded a ‘311’ time cue associated with ‘Judgment Day’. Mary-Venus-Isis is Lucifer the light/torch-bearer as well as to some extent Lady Justice, so those ‘middle day’ events share a common theme.

Le Tour is particularly evocative of Mary Magdalene in that ‘Tour de France’ can be interpreted as ‘tower of France’ (‘tour’ and tower’ are etymologically related) and the title ‘Magdalene’ means ‘tower’. A ‘tower in France’ is therefore ‘Magdalene in France’. Le Tour, furthermore, traditionally ends at the heart of France’s capital, Paris, the city of Isis (‘Par-Isis’). Paris in Greek mythology is associated with the torch. And Paris anchors the historically and esoterically important Paris Zero Meridian, or ‘Rose Line’, embodying the ‘Royal Blood’ flowing from/through ‘Mary Magdalene’.

As ‘lapsit exillis’, the Holy Grail (‘Royal Blood’) is a symbolic form of ‘stone fallen from heaven’ – a reference to a meteorite, particularly in its capacity as a heavenly ‘seed’ as per the panspermia process. This notion is very much present in the ancient Egyptian version of the stone, the Benben Stone, the ultimate capstone of the pyramid/obelisk, closely associated with Heliopolis or the ‘City of the Sun’. It’s a ‘Sun Stone’ or ‘Fire Stone’, and all about seeding and copulation.

What Deep Impact highlighted by smashing into Comet Tempel 1 on the July-4th ‘torch day’ – or a ‘Grail day’ – was this theme of the ‘heavenly stone’. It was a very fitting and esoteric way of celebrating Lady Liberty i.e. the goddess Mary Magdalene-Isis-Venus.


The name ‘Tempel 1’ adds more depth to the symbolism. Seen as ‘Temple 1’, immediately bringing to mind the first Temple in Jerusalem built by Solomon, it alludes to the Ark of the Covenant which the Temple housed. The Ark, according to tradition, held inside stone tablets (of Moses) which are sometimes theorized to have been meteorites, i.e. heavenly stones. So that reinforces the underlying symbolism.

The Temple was built on the summit of the Temple Mount, also called ‘Mount Moriah’. On TV, the July 4th celebration in the US prominently featured Mariah Carey – or should that be ‘Moriah carry’ or ‘Ark carrier’? – who was shown performing three songs for the Macy’s Fireworks Spectacular in New York. (She performed at London’s Live 8 concert two days before.) This came at a time when her single ‘We Belong Together’ was the nation’s #1 song, her first in five years, and her 16th #1 single – ‘16’ being, of course, a key STR number. To refresh your memory: Danica’s Indy car is #16; Venus Williams was ranked 16th in the world when she won the Wimbledon tournament on July 2; and the new pope is also a ‘16’, Benedict XVI. So that’s… amusing. And it makes pretty good sense, because the tarot card numbered 16 is the ‘Tower card’.

!http://www.goroadachi.com/etemenanki/eg5-house-of-sokar.jpg!\
The Ark being more or less interchangeable with an ‘arc’, it also alludes to the earth’s grid or great circles (for meridians and the equator). And of course the heavenly stone, particularly as the omphalos (navel) stone shown with two doves perched on it, is said to be the standard glyph meaning ‘to lay out parallels and meridians’. One of the meanings of ‘Magdalene’ happens to be ‘the place of the dove’.

So viewed together, we can’t help but start paying attention to the Paris Zero Meridian, the longitudinal great circle passing through Paris, signifying the ‘Rose Line’ or the Grail (stone) – i.e. the meridian to be crossed by the Tour/Tower de France cyclists on July 16, when in the sky will be formed the alignment of the Sun, Mercury and Tempel 1.

But it’s not just the Paris Meridian… We are also ‘instructed’ to pay attention to another meridian, or the Prime Meridian, i.e. that of Greenwich/London.

‘Tempel 1’ is ‘Temple 1’ and further, as Alfredo pointed out to me, ‘Time 1’ since ‘temple’ and ‘time’ are probably etymologically related. (Interestingly, the Indo-European root tem- from which Latin templum or ‘temple’ may have derived, means ‘to cut, divide’.) And ‘Time 1’ would be the Prime Meridian, which officially regulates all time zones on the planet. Today, the international Prime Meridian is the longitude of the Royal Greenwich Observatory or, generally, London, where the 7/7 bombings event took place, coinciding with Tempel 1 crossing the ecliptic.

‘7/7’ is an additional key clue here sine it seems to allude to the halfway point of the ‘Mayan final time segment’, 1998-2012, which would be 2005. (And the midpoint of the year 2005 was July 2.) This is made more relevant here by the fact that the Greenwich/London Prime Meridian doesn’t represent the leading edge of the planetary time zones. A new day actually starts on the opposite side of the globe, which means London’s Prime Meridian is a noon-marker, or… the halfway time-marker.

So we now have two key meridians highlighted – those of London/Greenwich and Paris. Two longitudinal great circles… intersecting at the earth’s poles.

Now, as noted in Hamlet’s Mill, the Promethean fire, signified by the Olympic torch, is a coded reference to ‘a great circle reaching from one celestial pole to the other’. Thus, our two meridional great circles are expressive of two ‘rings of fire’. This brings to mind this scene from the Athens Olympics…

And of course it was on July 6, the day before the 7/7 London bombings, that London and Paris found themselves in a two-way battle in the final round of the IOC voting trying to decide which city will host the 2012 ‘Mayan’ Olympics! London eventually came out victorious but the celebration lasted only a day, thanks to yet another ‘Mayan ritual event’ striking London on 7/7.

There is, through the ’7/7’ symbolism, actually another meridian being highlighted here – that of Washington DC, which is 77 degrees West. That is, a ’7-7’ meridian! It’s a historically significant longitude and has even been dubbed ‘God’s Longitude’.

So – three meridians. Paris, London, and Washington DC. Well, can it be more Masonic or Templar? These are Masonic/Templar ‘capitals’.

It is often remarked that the most significant geographical bridge connecting Freemasonry to the Knights Templar is Scotland where the Templars, under attack from the French monarch and the Church, supposedly took shelter, assisted by the sympathetic St. Clair/Sinclair family there. And of course Scotland is where the G8 summit was taking place around 7/7 this year…

What’s more, a well-known Masonic symbol, printed on the back of the US dollar bill, is the ‘All-Seeing Eye’, which is a stylized Benben Stone or the meteoric capstone of the pyramid.

This symbol also appears on the cover of a new CD coming out on August 16, titled ‘Don’t Tread On Me’. (Thanks to a reader for bringing this to my attention.)

This is by a band called… ‘311’! And their biggest mainstream hit song would be one titled ‘Amber’. Remember the ‘orange’ sub-theme associated with the ‘Judgment Day’ motif closely associated with the number ‘311’? Amber is an orange-yellow color…

The significance of ‘orange’, you may recall, seems to have much to do with its cryptic allusion to the combination of the Sun, Mercury, and Venus. And we have seen that an alignment of these three – dubbed the ‘Double-Sun Orange’ – appears to have an important function of marking key dates/events (particularly relating to the idea of the ‘fall/judgment of the Sun-king’).


The celestial alignment coming up July 16-17 is similar to this – but we have Comet Tempel 1 in the mix instead of Venus. However, because of Tempel 1’s close symbolic link to Mary Magdalene-Isis-Venus discussed above, it could easily be viewed that the comet is an apt substitute for Venus in the alignment. This is definitely a context that may prove fruitful when interpreting mid-July events.

Oh, and the release date of the ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ CD, August 16? It’s none other than the ‘Deep Impact day’, when a comet hits Earth – causing a ‘Great Flood’ – in the the 1998 film… Deep Impact.

There is a lot here that collectively constitute an ‘omen’. In the STR context, ‘omens’ – the major ones – come in the form of man-made structure falling from the sky that is associated with the notion of ‘peace’. In 2001, months before 9/11, it was the Russian space station Mir – decommissioned and made to fall down to earth on March 23. The name ‘Mir’ means both ‘peace’ and ‘world’. The end of Mir therefore signified the ‘end of world peace’, realized months later on 9/11 – which happened to be the International Peace Day.


In 2003, it was the space shuttle Columbia breaking apart upon reentry on February 1. The name ‘Columbia’ can mean ‘America’ as well as ‘peace’ (Columbia => Columba => dove => peace). The following month the US-led Iraq invasion began – driven by the imperial PNAC neoconservative agenda envisioning a Pax Americana, or ‘American Peace’. Like the shuttle Columbia, it ended up becoming a (predictable) disaster for both Iraq and the United States


Then in the fall of 2004 came NASA’s Genesis space capsule returning from the Sun after collecting a solar-wind sample. It failed to open its parachute and crashed into the Utah desert on September 8 – less than 2 weeks after the end of the Athens Olympics. Very much in line with the symbolic panspermia (cosmic seeding) theme of the Olympics, Genesis was a near-literal reenactment of the fall of the ‘Sun Stone’, i.e. the Benben/omphalos/Grail Stone or the ‘All-Seeing Eye’. And Utah’s capital, Salt Lake City, was the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics where a DNA-shaped torch tower was erected (DNA being the ultimate expression of a ‘seed’).


Exactly three months later on December 8, 2004, there was a follow-up to the ‘solar seed stone’ ritual, coming in a more stylized form – the Damageplan concert shooting in Columbus, Ohio. ‘Columbus’, of course, is a variant of Columbia/Columba thus related to the foregoing ‘omens’. And the strange flag of Ohio is – as you can see right – a stylized All-Seeing Eye capstone surrounded by a negative-space ‘M’ denoting Mary Magdalene or the ‘dove’ – i.e. like the standard omphalos symbol meaning ‘to lay out parallels and meridians’.

Sure enough, this ‘omen’ system was answered by the very ‘Genesis’-inspired modern ‘Great Flood’ event in southeast Asia just weeks after Columbus/Damageplan; it was pinpointed by Columbus’ meridional great circle and the parallel great circle (always fixed at the equator) on the other side of the globe.

And now, in 2005, we just had the Deep Impact fireworks on a ‘torch day’, which was quite similar to the Genesis crash especially when the storyline of the film ‘Deep Impact’ is taken into account (i.e. a heavenly stone colliding with Earth). This time, a real comet was employed in the ‘omen ritual’.

That this was a STR ‘omen’ was made clearer through the attached theme of ‘peace’. Tempel 1 is ‘Temple 1’ or ‘Solomon’s Temple’, and ‘Solomon’ means none other than ‘peace’!


What kind of real-life ‘deep impact’ are we in for this time around? Well, I have a lot to say about this and I will, perhaps in increments, in the near future. But in a sense, the 7/7 London bombings coming just days after Deep Impact hitting Tempel 1 was already a… let’s say the beginning of a ‘Deep Impact sequence’ that will continue further into 2005… We’re looking at something major in the November-December timeframe. I mean, I’m seeing the time code… and it’s there.

As far as the July 16-17 window (+/- 1 day) is concerned, I’m viewing it as another maker in the ‘Deep Impact Sequence’. This is already manifesting through the release of the new Harry Potter book on July 16. In addition to the 7/7 connection already discussed, Harry Potter makes its relevance known through the fact that the series’ very first book was named (outside of the US) ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’. The ‘Philosopher’s Stone’ is traditionally an alter ego of all the heavenly stones discussed in this post! So Comet Tempel 1, for instance, is symbolically a Philosopher’s Stone

And we’ll of course monitor the space shuttle’s imminent ‘Return To Flight’...

Now, is that in the STS-114 mission patch a stylized great circle that I see? And an orange meridional great circle? (Click on the image to see a bigger version.)


The blue ‘great circle’ makes the planet more like Saturn and the orange color alludes to Saturn’s orange moon, Titan. The Flood theme reemerging again? Indeed, we see that inside the shuttle outline in the patch is depicted the constellation of Columba (Noah’s dove) and the shuttle is even marking the North Pole, which is mythologically associated with the heavenly (cubic) stone having the function of stopping the Great Flood! Here is what I wrote in Contact: In the Ring of Fire:

A meridional great circle, or the ‘fire colure’, necessarily goes through the poles, but there are two amazing further correlations employed here. One is that the function of stopping the Flood water ascribed to the Benben/Omphalos Stone, which is a capstone or in effect a ‘pole stone’ symbolically used to pinpoint the Sumatran Great Flood, was also given to the Pole Star. As noted in Hamlet’s Mill (p.219):

According to the Mongolians, the Pole star is “a pillar from the firm standing of which depends the correct revolving of the world, or a stone which closes an opening; if the stone is pulled out, water pours out of the opening to submerge the earth.”

Continuing with the book, we have the following concerning the cubic shape (pp.222-3):

The cube was Saturn’s figure, as Kepler showed in his Mysterium Cosmographicum; this is the reason for the insistence on cubic stones and cubic arks. Everywhere, the power who warns “Noah” and urges him to build his ark is Saturn, as Jehovah, as Enki, as Tane, etc.

And where are the great circles marking on the globe, as per ‘X marks the spot’?

The Caribbean, or the West Indies. This is where Columbus made ‘First Contact’ with the New World… i.e. yet another manifestation of the ‘Columba’ theme! The region also includes Cuba – evoking ‘cube’ – and this is one of the prominent places theorized – by Andrew Collins for instance – to correspond to Plato’s Atlantis, the legendary island destroyed in a ‘Great Flood’.

And as it happens, Cuba’s flag is so similar to Ohio’s…

Flag of Ohio Flag of Cuba

The West Indies is also the ‘opposite’ of the East Indies (South and Southeast Asia), where last December’s ‘Great Flood’ took place on Boxing Day (or a ‘cube day’).

So it’s, seemingly, all about the ‘Great Flood’ now. And that cannot be not dramatic when/if manifested in physical reality.

Well, all this is a very active and ingenious ‘Contact’ game and we’re here trying to keep up with the Hermetic communication. The more deciphered/communicated, the less physical the manifestation of the pattern will be – in my view.

So, more coming and at this point I have only scratched the surface!

“US challenged over ‘secret underground jails’”:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4743485.stm

Both men say they were held in underground jails run by US guards
Two Yemeni men claim they were held in secret, underground US jails for more than 18 months without being charged, Amnesty International has said.
The human rights group has called on the US to reveal details of the alleged secret detention of suspects abroad.

Amnesty fears the case is part of a “much broader picture” in which the US holds prisoners at secret locations.

The US has not responded to the claims, but the head of the CIA recently said the agency does not use torture.

Porter Goss said in testimony to the US Senate torture was neither professional nor productive.

Beaten on feet

In the new report, Amnesty has urged the US to reveal where its alleged secret detention facilities are, stop using them and name the detainees held there.

The two Yemeni men, Muhammad Faraj Ahmed Bashmilah and Salah Nasser Salim Ali, were arrested separately but reported almost identical experiences to Amnesty.

“About Those Nuclear Attack Speculations”:http://tvnewslies.org/blog/?p=69
UPDATED 04-August-2005-

Some rumors eventually prove to be accurate foreknowledge. I hope that this one turns out to be silly paranoia spawned by someone (me) who gets too much email and worries too much!

We hear it every day from our government officials: “It’s not a matter of if, but when!” This phrase of course referrers to the domestic nuclear terrorism that our government tells us in inevitable. Naturally when our our government tells us this we have to respect their words. But when similar information is sourced to independent media the “conspiracy theory” tag is immediately applied. Let’s all hope that we can look back at this note and tag it as well meaning alarm and not as foreknowledge.

Before I fill you in on the information rumor mill regarding supposed upcoming nuclear terror let’s keep a few things in mind:

1. The US government is warning us that a nuclear terrorists attack is imminent. It is just a matter of time.
2. Nuclear weapons have only been manufactured by governments; with the US government being the most prolific producer.
3. The above 2 facts should lead you to realize that nuclear weapons do not get used without some kind of government involvement. Governments are the only entities that have the ability to manufacture nuclear weapons and they have always been in complete control of these weapons.
4. The fact is that no nuclear device has or will ever go off without the knowledge of at least one government that has a nuclear weapons program. We all know about the official nuclear capable nations and we all know that Israel is the unofficial nation to have nuclear capabilities. What is taking place, as was the case with Iraq, is that Iran is being set up as a nuclear threat in the event of a nuclear terror incident. Iran is not a nuclear WMD producer and if they were their technology would be so primitive that they would not be able to produce a small nuclear device that can be delivered by a terrorist. Nations do not jump from having no nuclear capabilities to producing the state of the art miniature nuclear devices. It just does not happen. Only the Soviet Union, the US and Israel would have that capability at this time. Perhaps some of the other nuclear nations can produce such devices but it is unlikely. What is surely unlikely is that Iran can produce them. Keep that in mind.

More background: Any president worth his salt is supposed to try to make the citizens feel safe and secure. George W. Bush and his PNAC warriors have done nothing but try to keep us frightened to death. Without even throwing a rock, by keeping us scared, this administration has terrorized the citizens of out nation and of the world. They are terrorists by virtue of the fact that they keep us in a continual state of fear. George W. Bush and his PNAC handlers use fear as tool to garner support for their otherwise unacceptable agenda. Any time they want to go after some person or some nation they raise the country’s fear factor in relation to that person or nation to unrealistic level so that Americans are frightened enough to permit the administration to do anything and everything to protect us. All this occurs even though the rationale for the fear is unfounded.

As professed by the members of the Bush administration who have taken part in the agenda of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), events the likes of “Pearl Harbor” can frighten the people of this nation into supporting even the most radical agenda of their group. It is the old adage of being protected from a perceived enemy that is at play here. Even though issues such as environmental pollutants pose a far greater risk to the lives of Americans, the perceived threat posed by the media created bogey man known as the terrorist, is being used to scare the people into supporting Bush the “Protector.” Operation Northwoods is a perfect historic documentation of this strategy. This operation was designed to utilize the fear factor to garner support for unnecessary military interventions. Operation Northwoods was a government plan to conduct false flag terror operations on our own nation and blame these events on a foreign country; in this case the country was Castro’s Cuba. The US planned to conduct state engineered terrorism which would then be blamed on Cuba. The result of this operation would be public support for protection by any means necessary against a perceived threat (Cuba in this case). This is not a new concept, and has been used for centuries. Hitler’s self inflicted Reichstag Fire is the perfect example of such state sponsored terrorism. Of course the example are numerous. . If the 9/11 researchers are correct in their suspicions those attacks served as a perfect example of a false flag operation. It had motive, means and response all fitting the blueprints for such a scheme.

THE RUMORS: I get a ton of email each day. I also read a great deal of news from a many sources. What I am hearing these days is very frightening, although it is VERY difficult to believe. It is for this reason I do not post all my information on the main web site. However I do want to share some of the chatter because if any of this information is accurate I want the real story to be heard BEFORE any official cover stories get out.

I repeat this is all chatter…none of which I can corroborate. There is quite a lot of information coming in so I will share some of it with you.

It is believed that Dick Cheney, a known PNAC kingpin, has ordered plans to be drawn up preparing for a launch of a nuclear attack on Iran to be used as a retaliation for a massive terror attack on the US. This information has come from several rather reliable sources. At the same time a stepped up PR campaign to make the public think Iran is developing nuclear weapons is underway.

Obviously Cheney can not launch an attack of any kind on Iran without provocation. I doubt that this nation will allow another Iraq to take place. So according to the rumor mill there are terror events planned that will provide the justification for a new military and perhaps nuclear strike by the PNAC crew.

My sources tell me that there will be one or more events taking place to justify such actions. The events are as follows: (AGAIN, I REITERATE THAT THIS IS UNCORROBORATED RUMOR!)

1. Terror attacks, perhaps in the form of perceived suicide bombings, will take place at venues that represent the heart of America, such as a baseball game or holiday celebration.
2. A US warship will come under attack in the Persian Gulf.
3. Nuclear terror will reach American shores. Small nuclear devices will go off in one or more American cities. These cities are to be large but not key cities like New York or LA. Death tolls of 200,000 per event are predicted.
4. I have received information from 2 sources (both sources claim CIA connections), that Mossad has started to pull their agents out of the US in anticipation of the nuclear events.

Some facts to go along with the rumors:
1. The events of 9/11 took place on a day and at the same time of day that hijacking and terror drills in the northeast (NY specifically) were taking place.
2. The London bombings took place as drills to deal with the exact kind of event were taking place.
3. Nuclear preparedness drills are to take place in the US in August of this year.

Again…this is all just crazy rumor right now. But some rumors turn out to be legitimate foreknowledge. If these or similar events do take place, the word on the street as we know it today indicates that these events would have been state sponsored false flag operations. We should keep that in mind…but hopefully you will be able look back at this little blurb as paranoid induced hysteria.

From the rumor mill…

Note to name calling skeptics: It is the Bush administration and the right wing FOX News types who keep telling us that it is a matter of when, not if. It is these people who maintain the fear levels in this nation. So when people start to speculate and rumors start flying remember that they origniate from the Bush administration. They are the ones who chose to keep us in fear and make us feel that we are not safe. It was a Democrat who said that we have nothing to fear but fear itself. It is the Bush adminisrtation who says we must fear. Blame them for any rumors. They give the world good reasons to suspect them.

I just love all this scaremongering about Nuclear whatever. It truly amazes me, and also my friends from the RAAF, why everyone in the world is so prepared to comment on topics they really know stuff-all about!!!
For instance, there can never be a Nuclear war, or for that matter a Nuclear retaliation. The only act that can be performed involving anything Nuclear is just one detonation, then that’s it! The next detonation cannot take place until the Sun and it’s Sunspot activity distorts the Magnetic Field and reaches the right climax, thereby allowing for detonation.
The reason there are so many tests around the world (most of which you will never hear about) is an Irish answer: “To Be Sure, To Be Sure”
Whosoever does not wish to understand this in these simple layman’s terms should do some serious scientific study like ourselves, using no-one else but Bruce Cathie (The first man to complete Einstein’s Theory of relativity) and ALL of his books.
Ask yourselves why there have never been any scientists commenting on “Nuclear War” because they know it’s a sheer impossibility………….Can Never Happen!
Your very own Crosby, Stills and Nash told you many times, but nobody over there listens.
“Paranoia strikes deep, Into your mind it will creep”
So, get on with your lives, Live them to the max, stop worrying about things you hear from your Authorities, and for God’s sake quit filling the internet with absolute bullshit so we can have room on the airwaves for real stuff like music with some substance, OK?
I have also died and come back from the “other side”, whatever you wish to call it, and the main message I remember, among others, is that “MOST PEOPLE ON PLANET EARTH ARE TOO BUSY WORRYING WHAT THEY WILL BE DOING FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS INSTEAD OF WONDERING WHAT THEY WILL BE DOING FOR THE NEXT 50,000 YEARS…………………….So come on people get some lives huh!

The so-called micro-nukes are a reality and in fact are present in the US at this moment, but that’s not to say anyone has anything to fear over it. They’ve been there for a long long time. And contrary to what most people believe, micro-nukes have already been used at least twice in the past five years or so. The Australian Embassy blast. According to one report, “blast overpressure shattered every pane of reinforced laminated glass in every high rise building inside a 500 yard radius, and severely compromised structural integrity”. A very powerful blast. Note the word overpressure. “The Australian Embassy was so badly undermined by the subterranean shock wave that it will have to be demolished”.

“More About Those Nuclear Attack Speculations”:http://www.tvnewslies.org/blog/?p=78
Before I get to the current rumor mill, I want you to think about why it might be important to pay attention to rumors even if they never pan out.

Consider the rumors that can serve us well financially. When we come across buzz about a corporate takeover or a drug about to be approved by the FDA, what do we do? Many of us do the smart thing, we inquire. We call our broker or we talk to knowledgeable friends, just in case there is something to the rumor. If there is a way to take advantage of what we heard, we do not want to miss a good opportunity. Some of us will even skip an intensive validation process before we put in a buy or sell order with a trusted, low fee, on-line brokerage service. Sometimes it’s worth risking a little in order to gain a lot.

It seems that when it comes to personal gain or profit, we are willing follow through on rumors. Even more interesting, we also are willing to admit that others know more than we do. When it comes to making a buck, we seem more ready to listen to people who have some knowledge about things we know little or nothing about. We will seek out people with some expertise in areas in which we have absolutely no experience. When we come across stock “tips” on the financial rumor mill, we have no problem placing our trust in other sources. If some of these tips fall flat and disappoint us, we don’t stop trusting these more informed sources. We continue to have faith in their good intentions and we wait eagerly for the next bit of market gossip to come along.

Why, then, do the attitudes of most people change so dramatically when the “tips” are rumors that involve their government? Most, and I repeat most of us do not understand the powerful factors that control the governments of the world. Most people have a view of the world as it is presented in school books. They have no idea that a handful of very wealth, very powerful, and very well entrenched people wield enormous power over most of us. There is no room here to discuss this huge and complicated topic in detail. Suffice it to say that some very powerful people have inordinate power to influence the agendas of many governments of the world. This is not a conspiracy theory, this is fact. Before you pass judgment, do some reading and find out for yourself. Spend some time looking up the private adjuncts to our governmental bodies: the Bilderberg Group, the Illuminati and the World Bank. Research the Tri-Lateral Commission, the National Security Council and the Council on Foreign Relations. Then ask yourself why these unelected bodies are so closely and consistently entangled in so many aspects of so many governments. Then ask yourself why do the members of these groups also have deep ties to many multi-national corporations; many of which are energy, defense and media related. We are not just talking about one or two conflicts of interest here. We are talking about people who sit on the boards of multiple companies and who are involved in these secretive yet powerful organizations. Who do they actually represent; the corporations or the organizations? Why is it that only that extremely wealthy and corporately connected individuals are involved in these organizations?

But let’s do some of your homework right here. One example is a power group with inordinate influence over the policies of the Bush administration, yet totally hidden to most Americans.. This group is one of the most easily researched and verifiable of all: the Project for a New American Century (PNAC). The motives and goals of this organization are not secret. They are not some mythical theory. They are not the paranoid fabrication of a tinfoil hat conspiracy nut. The agenda of this organization is available for all to see. Their plans and visions are clearly detailed on their own website. Their activities, past and present, are recorded and archived for everyone to examine. These are the people who proposed war with Afghanistan and Iraq long before 9/11. These are the people who designed the doctrine for global military superiority long before George Bush was even a candidate for the presidency. And today, these are the people who hold an extraordinary number of key positions in every major foreign policy department of the US government. They are seen and heard over and over on the corporate media. They are invited to offer advice and give opinions to an unsuspecting public that never hears a single word about their relationship to PNAC.

Thanks to the controlled corporate media, most Americans have no idea who these people are. PNAC members hold dozens of key positions in the Bush administration. They are never identified as being members of PNAC. There is never mention of their common affiliation and history. Oddly, the one non PNAC person in the White House is George W. Bush. He is the outsider.

Research this group and you will find that many of these key members of the Bush administration were once known in Washington as “The Crazies!” These men – and women, who have been connected to several past administrations, supported agendas that were so radical that that they were kept out of positions in which they could really do some harm. Today, they direct, and control the foreign policy of the United States. That is not an exaggeration. Keep this in mind when you get to the rumor mill portion of this blog.

This being said, let’s understand there is a pretty good chance that there are people who know a great deal more about the power brokers behind our government than the average American. Many of you might be ahead of the curve on this and may have read up on the topics I mentioned. You may also have listened to or read the works of Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, Meria Heller, Whatreallyhappened.com, David Ickey or others on the Internet. There is a great deal of information about these power brokers out there for those who really want to know.

Sadly, many people simply dismiss these sources as the ranting of crackpots or conspiracy theorists whose information is not credible. They do this without ever considering the validity of what is claimed. By doing this, they place themselves in the same class of those who dismissed the round-word theorists. These people could not and would not open their minds to any idea that refuted their belief that the world was flat. They ridiculed and denigrated the findings of people who, in fact, knew what they were saying, and who knew more than their deriders. This made no sense at the time, and makes no sense now. It is self defeating and possibly dangerous to ignore the words of informed sources. It makes even less sense to dismiss them outright before they ever have a chance to be heard.

It makes a great deal more sense to have an open mind about information that has been researched and documented, especially when that information directly affects your life. This is not unlike accepting, or at least considering information about your health given to you by a doctor. You may not have a clue about the technical facts leading to the diagnosis, but you listen to what is being said. When you go home, you might research the condition that was described. You might get a second professional opinion and ask others about the condition. Finally, after listening and asking and reading and thinking, you discern the validity of what the doctor told you. You would not simply dismiss the claims made by your doctor because you were unable deal with what you heard. Even if the diagnosis was bizarre and too extreme to accept at the moment,. you would not dismiss it outright. You would not allow your lack of medical knowledge to get in the way of accepting life saving information. Obviously, that close-minded approach could very well endanger, if not end your life. By the time you figure out that the doctor was right, it might be too late to use what he had to say.

So, why not take this approach with other vital issues such as those involving the government? It might be an essential strategy for becoming more open-minded and ultimately more aware of what goes on in this very complex and confusing world. It also might be helpful in finding ways to distinguish legitimate information from unfounded rumor. You really can’t lose if you listen and think about things you are tempted to dismiss or ignore. At worst, you will have wasted some time. But at best you might be on the receiving end of some very valuable information. Bear in mind what was just said: a close-minded approach could endanger your life. You really wouldn’t want to start listening when it was too late to use the information.

Okay. I think I’ve made my point, so on with the rumors:

As some of you know, there are many rumors afoot about state-sponsored, false flag, nuclear terror attacks right here in the good old USA. You can catch up on these rumors by reading my last piece on the topic by clicking here.

Recent events are adding fuel to the rumors, and suggest that the final pieces of the puzzle may be falling into place. Here is some background:

1. The entire rumor is based on the concept that elements within the government (and their adjuncts, see above) are intent on creating a New World Order in the form of a single world government.

2. In order for the people to go along with these plans events have to take place that create an atmosphere of great fear. Frightened citizens will permit their government to do anything so long as they believe it is for their own safety. This is an old psychological ploy that has been used successfully by governments in the past. At present, the American government promotes and engenders constant fear in the public. In part this is done, as it was during the Cold War years, to finance the military industrial complex. When the Cold War ended, military budgets needed new life – so along came the international terrorist. For war profiteers there is no better enemy than one that can not be seen or identified, and ultimately can never be defeated. There can be no end to a war on the catch phrase, “Terrorism” . Terrorists are not an enemy that can surrender, so there is no way to tell when the military effort has succeeded. The war that is being waged today is the perfect never-ending war that will provide a never-ending flow of funds. It is the perfect business plan for the military industrial complex. An enemy that can not be identified can not be defeated. Everlasting war is the result. Everlasting war funding is the goal.

3. The PNAC crew, formerly know as the Crazies, control a virtual dictatorship. As we speak, there is no oversight or accountability in the Bush administration. Those in power do pretty much whatever they want. Their march into Iraq was a prime example of the way they do business. The world stood still as the administration, with the help of their corporate adjunct, the mainstream media, convinced the American people that Iraq was to be feared. This was a ludicrous claim that was almost laughable. Iraq was a smashed and defeated nation with no military to speak of, that had undergone 12 years of crippling embargoes and 12 years of bombing raids and they were the ideological enemy of Al Qaeda. There was nothing to fear, but fear we did so that phase one of the PNAC plan could go into action.

4. Don’t believe for a moment that the PNAC crew that took control of our government will ever let go of that power. They waited too long and planned too hard to stop in their tracks. They assumed power by stealing elections and reaping the benefits of the “new Pearl Harbor” they themselves said they needed. On September 11th, 2001, these not-so-crazy men went into full gear. The oil pipelines to the Caspian could be fully in their hands if Afghanistan and Iraq were under their control A rapid defeat of these countries would lead to domination of the region. Despite the setbacks to their poorly laid, albeit ambitious plans, these people are here for the duration. There is no way this long awaited power is going to slip through their hands. This is a now or never opportunity for to achieve the goals they openly laid out year before.
5. There is no possible argument to refute the reality that the people in power today needed a tragedy like 9/11 to take place. Without it, there would have been no opportunity at all, none, nada, nil, to implement their openly published agenda. Without the attacks of that day, there would be no wars against Afghanistan or Iraq. Saddam Hussein would be trading his oil in Euros, the pipelines of the oil rich Middle East would be in the hands of other nations, and the ambitions of the PNAC power brokers would be in the garbage. For whatever it’s worth, which is a harsh reality. Think about it.

Here is what has recently changed:

1.The public is beginning to catch on to what is going on. Questions are being asked. Answers are being demanded.

2. There is a groundswell of public interest in the events of 9/11. A great deal of new evidence has been uncovered by the independent 9/11 research community that exposes the official story of 9/11 as the real conspiracy theory. A great deal of evidence points to government complicity, at least to the level of permitting the events to unfold. The media can no longer stem the grass roots information campaign taking place. The more people examine the findings of the independent community, the more they realize that something sinister is at hand. One can not view the uncovered information without becoming suspicion about what the Bush administration knew and when they knew it.

3. The Plame investigation is coming to a head. According to recent reports, indictments have already been issued or are underway. The investigation reportedly goes far beyond the leak of a CIA agent, and has looked into illegalities by people at the highest levels of government concerning 9/11 and the war in Iraq.

4. If we get past the midterm elections and vote rigging is under control, there is a chance that many members of Congress will be getting their walking papers. If Republicans lose control of Congress there is a chance that impeachment proceedings will take place. The grounds for impeachment of the President and Vice President have been clearly established – and include the high crimes of lying to Congress, and manipulating intelligence information for political gain.

What does all this mean? Let’s consider the most recent rumors that involve the indictment of people in high places. Such an event will mean the end of the PNAC dream. This is why they have to work fast, before any such indictments are issued or before too much truth gets out. This administration cannot risk letting Americans know really took place on 9/11. That, too, would mean the end of the PNAC dream.

The last pieces of the PNAC power structure were just put in place. John Bolton is Ambassador to the UN. He is PNAC. Zalmay Khalilzad is Ambassador to Iraq. He is PNAC. Paul Wolfowitz is the head of the World Bank. He is PNAC. So are Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and Scooter Libby. Need I go on? If undeterred, they can proceed at full speed with their global domination agenda. Only now things don’t look to good, and if the rumor about the indictments is true, something will have to be done. This something, according to the rumor mill, will be a false flag terror operation in the form of a limited nuclear attack on our own soil. This will permit the PNAC crazies to freeze our government, implement martial law and maintain absolute dictatorship level powers indefinitely. Don’t put it past this dangerous gang of radicals to do this.

Here are my two cents: In my scenario George W. Bush does not survive an attack. I say this for several reasons:

1. Bush is not a PNAC member. Cheney runs the show. Bush has been a burden for these people. They have to teach him what to say, how to present his little issues, tutor him, give him his sound bites, etc. He could not even handle one hour in front of the friendly 9/11 Commission by himself; Cheney had to accompany him. He had nothing to do with creating the PNAC agenda and by getting him out of the way Cheney and crew can move faster and harder.

2. If George Bush were no longer President, it would add to the power of the PNAC crew. If you think they assumed great power because 3,000 anonymous Americans died, just imagine how much more power they can assume after claiming that terrorists are a great enough threat to get to an American president. Bush would be the sacrificial poster boy. He would have served his purpose and would no longer be needed. He would provide PNAC with more power than they ever could achieve if he had lived. An interesting side note is that George W. Bush’s Skull and Bones nickname is “Temporary!” Interesting, to say the least.

3. Also, look for a hit on Chicago . The records and principles involved in the Plame investigation have to be eliminated. Just as a great deal of Enron information perished in the WTC, the criminal evidence against PNAC members must disappear. How convenient that would be.

Do I know for certain that any of this will happen? NO, OF COURSE NOT! The idea that the US will experience a nuclear terror event and it will unfold as I describe IS INDEED A CONSPIRACY THEORY. I repeat THIS IS A CONSPIRACY THEORY!!! However, the information used to compile my theory, most notably the goals and motives of the PNAC crazies is NOT THEORY; it is FACT. And if my frightening theory got you to pay attention to the people who are really running this country, this blog entry has accomplished its goal.

OK, so there is my brain dump. Why am I sharing this with you? I am writing this because, amazingly, I know more about the thugs in PNAC than almost every single person I meet, anywhere. With the exception of the people I have met through running TvNewsLIES.org, almost everyone I know or meet is clueless as to who the PNAC people are and knows nothing whatsoever about their agenda. Even some the most informed activists against this administration are unaware of the affiliation, the intrigue, and the cabal that is PNAC. So many Americans have no idea about the people behind the people who run the government, and I feel it is about time to turn that around. If your curiosity has been piqued at all, I’ve done something worthwhile.

Please let me be wrong! But if I am correct…let’s not wait until it’s too late to listen to what I am saying! We could be talking about life and death.

Peace,

“Nuclear Warfare is the Solution for Destroying America”:http://www.homelandsecurityus.com/AmericanHiroshima.asp

Military Expert & Analyst Advances Theory: How about an American Hiroshima which is a repeat, an eye for an eye of the events of exactly sixty years ago this August 6th and 9th? Is it plausible? I believe so.

by Sean Osborne, Military Affairs & Senior Analyst

The early morning of August 6, 2005 began as any summer-time Saturday does in New York City with school vacations winding down and kids wanting to get the most of the remaining days of summer. An avid Mets fan, 10 year old Trevor Blaylock of Flushing, New York was already pestering his dad about when they were going to begin the short walk to Shea Stadium. The Chicago Cubs were in town and Trevor was very eager to be one of the first 12,000 kids through the gates so he’d get the official New York Mets back-to-school binder.

Meanwhile in the up-the-Hudson city of Poughkeepsie nefarious activity was going on at the Dutchess County Airport were an undetected Al Qaeda terrorist cell was making final preparations with their Cessna 152 and its tactical nuclear payload. The chosen plan of attack of the cell was to approach New York City at low altitude, barely tree top level so as you use the natural ground cover to mask the aircraft in the ambiguous radar returns. This course was chosen to further the operational security of this long-planned mass casualty attack against the infidels as General Aviation rules did not preclude their direct approach to the selected target.

It was at 2 PM Eastern Daylight Time, bottom of the first inning, the Mets had retired the Cubbies three up three down, Jose Reyes was at the plate awaiting the first pitch from the towering Carlos Zambrano when there was a blinding flash of blue-white light which illuminated Shea Stadium and time itself seemed to come to a halt in that very microsecond and just as quickly all hell broke out in New York City. We came to learn later that the terrorists had followed the flight plan exactly, tree top to tree top and down the Hudson River. Upon seeing the George Washington Bridge the suddenly pulled the Cessna 152 into a steep climb to an altitude of 2000 feet. Throttled up to full speed at 98 knots the terrorist made a mad dash for midtown Manhattan and at a position directly over the Empire State Building, with a shout of “allah akhbar” the terrorists detonated their ex-Soviet tactical nuclear weapon. The “American Hiroshima” had occurred exactly as the terrorists had been saying it was going to happen for the past three years. The image of a broad daylight mushroom cloud over a World Trade center less New York skyline was now a reality. That image flashed around the world within seconds, New York was destroyed and four million Americans were dead – including 2 million children just like Trevor Blaylock. Three days later a second bomb was detonated 2000 feet over the Calvert Cliffs nuclear power plant a mere 45 miles south of Washington DC. The Jihadists had demonstrated the military concept of a “force multiplier” with the selection of this target.

Is this Tom Clancyesque work of fiction that far removed from a potential reality? Myself and a few others think not. The actual targets may be deviant but the concept is exactly what the terrorists of Al Qaeda have been saying for three years.

The Al Qaeda nuclear fatwa issued in December 2002 by Abu Shihab al-Kandahari is quite explicit and revealing. He begins by saying in Islamic Fatwa religious edict, which this article takes as its own title,

“Thus, you are not mistaken in reading this text. This is the only way to kill the greatest possible number of Americans. The Americans have never experienced a threat like this one. During World War II, America used this [nuclear] weapon twice in three days…”

“Al-Qaeda has in its possession bombs which are called “dirty bombs,” and bombs with deadly viruses, which will spread fatal diseases throughout American cities…”

“The coming days will prove that Kaedat el-Jihad [the Al-Qaeda organization] is capable of turning America into a sea of deadly radiation. Yes, we will destroy America and its allies…”

It has long been maintained in private consensus within the intelligence community that Al Qaeda obtained tactical nuclear weapons from the former-Soviet Union sources in central Asia. Al Qaeda number two, Ayman al-Zawahiri is on record saying:

“We sent our people to Moscow, to Tashkent, to other Central Asian states, and they negotiated, and we purchased some suitcase [tactical nuclear] bombs.” (Months after September 11, 2001 and six months prior to the “nuclear fatwa” issued by al-Kandahari, in June of 2002, the former Kuwaiti-born Al Qaeda spokesman, Suleiman Abu Gheith, issued the baseline of Al Qaeda’s nuclear plan for America, this is the public genesis of the concept of an “American Hiroshima.” It is a detailed blueprint of their intentions and must be heeded in the literal sense. Here are the key excerpts from Abu Gheith’s three-part “In the Shadow of the Lances:”

“The [premises] on which we base ourselves as an organization, and on which we base our operations and our method of action, are practical and realistic… They are also scientific and [in accordance with] Islamic religious law, and they give us confidence and certainty… In writing them and in [publicly] revealing them, I do not intend to be apologetic for what was done; I lay [these arguments] before you so as to emphasize that we are continuing with our blows against the Americans and the Jews, and with attacking them, both people and installations [so as to stress] that what awaits the Americans will not, Allah willing, be less than what has already happened to them. America must prepare itself; it must go on maximum alert; ...because, Allah willing, the blow will come from where they least expect it…”

“The religious arguments on which we base ourselves in our Jihad against the Americans – the explanations that inspire us with confidence in the triumph of our religion, our belief, and our faith – are many, and this is not the place to enumerate them, as they are included in the books of the sages.”

“If by religious law it is permitted to punish a Muslim [for the crime he committed] – it is all the more permitted to punish a Harbi infidel [i.e. he who belongs to Dar Al-Harb ‘the domain of disbelief’] in the same way he treated the Muslim.”

“We have not reached parity with them. We have the right to kill 4 million Americans – 2 million of them children – and to exile twice as many and wound and cripple hundreds of thousands. Furthermore, it is our right to fight them with chemical and biological weapons, so as to afflict them with the fatal maladies that have afflicted the Muslims because of the [Americans’] chemical and biological weapons.”

Based upon these words above and in combination of everything I have heard or seen concerning the terrorist activity of Qaedat-al-Jihad the backbone of my Clancyesque “American Hiroshima” theory was born. There are several directly quoted sentences above I wish to reiterate at this point:

“During World War II, America used this [nuclear] weapon twice in three days…”

“Therefore, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth…”

“Al-Qaeda… has in its possession bombs which are called ‘dirty bombs,’ and bombs with deadly viruses, which will spread fatal diseases throughout American cities…”

“we will destroy America and its allies”
So how about an American Hiroshima which is a repeat, an eye for an eye of the events of exactly sixty years ago this August 6th and 9th? Is it plausible? I believe so. I believe it is consistent with the Department of Homeland Security Informational Bulletin released on June 28, 2005 warning to law enforcement and all concerned parties, first responders, et al., for the month of July 2005. I would extend that warning to cover the anniversaries of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks of August 6/9, 1945. I also think there is no small coincidence with all the recent chatter of talk concerning this topic in the recent past, or the exceptional reaction in Washington DC to an errant, lone Cessna 152 which was three minutes from the White House when intercepted. Nuclear weapons are like hand grenades: “close enough” gets you that celebratory cigar.

“Homeland Security to conduct gas tests inNew York City , subways 8/6!”:http://www.nynewsday.com/news/health/ny-hsgas0805,0,6618996.story?coll=nyc-homepage-breaking2

August 4, 2005, 3:25 PM EDT

Amid heightened anti-terrorism vigilance concerning New York City’s subway system, a mammoth Department of Homeland Security-sponsored research effort starting as early as Saturday will seek to answer how harmful gases might disperse through Midtown’s busy streets and through the warren of subway tunnels beneath them.

The simulation, which will use colorless, odorless and harmless “tracer” gases, follows a smaller effort in March that focused on a section of Manhattan around Madison Square Garden. This time around, a team of more than 150 researchers and volunteers working on the Urban Dispersion Program’s second major field study will fan out over a much larger section of Midtown, ranging from 37th to 59th Streets and from 10th Avenue to 3rd Avenue and including stations along the Broadway subway line and other lines in the area.

Paul Kalb, a senior research engineer at Brookhaven National Laboratory, said scientists will release the gases at four locations aboveground, within an office building, and on a subway platform of the Broadway line at 50th Street and 7th Avenue.

Six separate experiments are planned over the next three weeks, with specific dates dependent on the weather, and the subway portion planned for the final three release dates.

“We’ll be looking at the interaction of the subways in how the gases are dispersed,” Kalb said. “If we release on the ground level, the street level, some of the material may be drawn into the subways and moved around that way.”

Likewise, releasing a gas in the subway will tell researchers whether that gas remains within the tunnel system or drifts up to street level, and how it disperses through the urban canyons of the city.

One of the substances is known as PFT, or perfluorocarbon tracer gas, a safe and extensively used labeling compound that Con Edison relies on to detect dielectric fluid leaks in its underground cables. Jerry Allwine, the project’s lead scientist and an engineer with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash., said the second type of tracer gas, known as sulfur hexafluoride, also has been used by researchers for years. With it, scientists will be able to measure exposure rates at one-second intervals, allowing them to get real-time data on how it disperses.

To collect the reams of data expected from the experiments, electronic monitors will be positioned on rooftops, in subway stations, in baskets hanging from lampposts, in a half-dozen unmarked vans cruising through Midtown, and in the pockets of volunteers simulating the movements of pedestrians and subway riders.

Another segment of the experiment will take place within a large Midtown office building, analyzing how air flows within the building and exchanges with outside. E-mail notices went out earlier this week notifying the building’s employees of the tests.

To alleviate security concerns, Allwine said all of the subway equipment would be staffed at all times, with researchers and employees wearing photo ID badges and red vests for easy identification.

Date: Wed, 3 Aug 2005 16:46:34 -0400

Hi Dee Ho Everyone.

I just want to let you know that I’ve been really busy since my little “break.”

Scrambling to make “arrangements” and to gather a few more supplies that might help me and a few people survive that which I think is coming…All sources indicate that I am about to need some really good sunglasses and sunscreen, LOL!

Although FEMA has bought all POTASSIUM IODATE and Atropene and 2-Pam Chloride. So I really won’t survive even “mild” radiation exposure.

Given my close proximity to DC, I’m about to have my butt handed to me, if it occurs…and judging from sources…it is “very likely” to occur.

OH well. Read below, and then click the links. (Those are not my whinny words…as you might guess.)

I’ll be sitting in the back yard on a lounge chair, drinking a beer, with a marshmallow on a stick, and watching the “Fireworks.”

..Reminds me of a famous quote from Emperor Hirohito, when he saw the “flash” at Hiroshima: “What the #### was THAT???”

ALSO:

THIS IS A SNIP FROM AN EMAIL I JUST RECEIVED. SIFT OUT THE WARNING
========

I WANT TO LIVE THROUGH WHAT EVER COMES. I WANT TO BE SURE THAT NO ONE IN AUTHORITY STILL RULES WHEN IT IS OVER. STEVE QUAYLE HAD A GUEST ON HIS PROGRAM TONIGHT WHO SELLS SURVIVAL GEAR. HE SAID FEMA RECENTLY CALLED HIM AND ASKED IF HE HAD POTASSIUM IODATE. HE TOLD THEM HE HAD 300,000 TABLETS. THEY BOUGHT THEM ALL. FUNNY THING WAS, HE TOLD THEM, I AM A SMALL COMPANY. I CAN’T WAIT 30-60-90 DAYS FOR PAYMENT. THEY SENT AN OVERNIGHT DRAFT TO HIS BANK. THEN HE ASKED THEM HOW THEY WANTED IT SHIPPED, THINKING LIKE UPS ON THREE DAY DELIVERY. THEY SAID, YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. THERE WILL BE A LEAR JET THERE THIS AFTERNOON. HAVE IT READY. DO YOU DETECT ANY URGENCY IN THAT? I THINK I HEARD HIM SAY HE IS RE-CALIBRATING THE OLD RADIATION DETECTORS FROM THE OLD CIVIL DEFENSE BUNKERS AND CELLARS FOR THE GOVERNMENT. THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH NEW STUFF. THEY KNOW SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN, AND THEY AIN’T TELLING US. THEY MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO RULE ONCE THIS IS OVER. FOR THAT, I WANT TO LIVE.

*“Bomb drills at hospital”:http://www.newsandsentinel.com/news/story/085202005_new09_drills080505.asp

By ROGER ADKINS

PARKERSBURG – Five “bombs” were located and disarmed Thursday at St. Joseph’s Hospital.

Several agencies participated in a 5:30 p.m. bomb drill at the hospital during which five simulated devices were located and successfully disarmed, said Detective Greg Collins, Parkersburg police. The drill provided training experience for the police department, the Parkersburg Fire Department, St. Joseph’s personnel and the West Virginia Fire Marshal’s office.
The drill took months to plan and emergency responders were kept in the dark about what they would face when they arrived at the scene. Collins said five simulation devices were hidden in various spots inside the administrative building of the hospital. The first “bomb” was found about five minutes into the training drill, he said.

“So far, I’m very impressed,” Collins said.

Once responders arrived on the scene, they were told to follow their department’s policies and procedures regarding bomb threats.

Police officers teamed with hospital personnel to form search groups. Firefighters secured the area and a response from the fire marshal’s office was simulated. Fire marshals used their bomb robot to “dismantle” the simulated devices once located.

Collins said the drill could have gone either way. There was no guarantee that all the devices would be located. If the simulated situation was real, failure could have resulted in a horrendous explosion that could have leveled the building. In the end, all of the devices were located.

The drill was requested by the hospital, Collins said.

“They asked us to facilitate this drill for their personnel,” he said. “We haven’t choreographed any of this.”

Forty to 50 St. Joseph’s staff members participated in the simulation, he said.

“This, for me, is about agencies working together,” Collins said. “We don’t get to do that every day.”

Tom Joyce, safety and security director for the hospital, said the drill was an overwhelming success.

“The purpose of this was to learn, plan and test our system. That’s what we did today. We feel very lucky to have the police department, the fire department and the fire marshal’s office participating,” he said. “The reality is we need to be prepared for this. We’re not a federal facility that is locked down and air-tight. We have hundreds of visitors a day.”

Capt. Carl Sizemore of the Parkersburg Fire Department said the drill will help the responding agencies learn which areas of response need to be improved.

“I thought it was a very beneficial training exercise. It allowed us to critique ourselves on some things we need to change or improve on. It was good to have the different agencies working together. The devices were located. There were a few areas that we need to work on. Communications was one. With a bomb scenario, you can’t use any type of electronic device or you might set off the bomb. That was a hindrance from the beginning,” he said.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans in the Middle East and North Africa were warned Thursday they may be targets of terrorists using biological weapons as well as conventional arms.

Seaborne vessels traveling in the southern Red Sea are among the possible targets, the State Department said in alerting Americans to ongoing security concerns.

Also, the department said it was concerned extremists may be planning to carry out attacks against Westerners and oil workers on the Arabian Peninsula.

Americans considering seaborne travel near the Horn of Africa in the southern Red Sea should exercise extreme caution, the department said.

Subject: THE SIX FINGERED RACE WITH TYPE O BLOOD

One would be the REPTILIANS who created the MEROVINGIAN RACE

or those who have the VAMPIRE GENE ( PP0X ) on their red blood cell genome. And the MISSING DELTA 32 RECEPTOR missing from their CD4 Lymphocytes ( white blood cells ) thereby making them 100 percent IMMUNE to the HIV DISEASE. I have too many references on this to list them all. However I will list two. SEPTEMBER 1997 issue of SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN regarding the CCR5 GENE and the DELTA 32 RECEPTOR. And the JUNE 1997 issue of NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE which details the SECRET IMMUNITY to HIV. But enough on the MEROVINGIAN IMMUNITY to HIV. I want to report my recent findings of another race of beings not of this earth who are big players in the NEW WORLD ORDER. This would be the SIX FINGERED RACE with the TYPE O BLOOD. While I had my own program on SHORTWAVE RADIO ( WWRB ) out of Manchester Tennessee one of my listeners called me and told me that he had been born with SIX FINGERS on EACH HAND and had TYPE O BLOOD. This is the BLOODLINE of PHAOROAH and the ATLANTEANS. Since that time I obtained a book from the American Geneological Society. Entitled the “ PLANTAGENET ANCESTRY” by Douglas Richardson. It lists 205 families who immigrated to the 13 colonies from England during the 1600’s and 1700’s. These 205 families all have the SIX FINGERED GENOME. And were all related to the PLANTAGENET KINGS of ENGLAND who ruled England from 1066 AD until 1485 AD. The last PLANTAGENET KING of ENGLAND was RICHARD the THIRD who was defeated by HENRY the EARL of RICHMOND at the BATTLE of BOSWORTH FIELD in 1485.

GEORGE WASHINGTON was a member of this SECRET SPACE ALIEN BLOODLINE. The WASHINGTON FAMILY immigrated to the 13 colonies in 1650. Another of my listeners in Brooklyn New York just told me recently that radio station WBAI 99.5 FM in New York was putting out solicitations trying to locate an INDIGENOUS RACE of INDIANS from PUERTO RICO who also possessed SIX FINGERS on each hand and SIX TOES on EACH FOOT. They are known as the DIAN INDIANS. More information keeps piling up on these issues. Another listener has informed me that a relief pitcher for the Florida Marlins baseball team has SIX FINGERS on each and SIX TOES on each foot. His name is ANTONIO ALFONSECO. And there is more. Another listener sent me a photograph of an Egyptian hieroglyph from a book entitled “ SECRETS of the GREAT PYRAMID” where it shows PHAOROAH perfectly clear as having SIX FINGERS on EACH HAND. As far as I know I am the only researcher in the world working on these issues other than the Illuminati. This MYSTERIOUS SIX FINGERED RACE is mentioned at least 3 times in the KING JAMES BIBLE. HABBAKUH CHAPTER 3:4 II SAMUEL 21:20 I CHRONICLES 20:6 I’m sending this post to the CIA-DRUGS list because there was a member of the WASHINGTON FAMILY ( STERLING WASHINGTON ) who was one of the FOUNDING FATHERS of the CIA.

I found this in a book that I now have in my personal library entitled the Cyclopaedia of Fraternities published in 1907 by the American Confederation of Initiates. Both George Washington and Alexander Hamilton were members of an OCCULT FASCIST SECRET SOCIETY known as the SOCIETY of CINCINNATI.

In 1907 the Cyclopaedia of Fraternities stated that there were chapters in 11 states. Today I know for sure that high ranking members of our current military are members of this occult fascist secret society. One of the members of the society in 1782 was the FRENCH OFFICER known as the MARQUISE De ROCHAMBEAUX. The current MARQUISE De ROCHAMBEAUX lives today in Virginia Beach Virginia and receives an annual stipend of $100,000 for his living expenses. The 1782 Marquis was the officer who captured REDOUBT NUMBER 10 at the BATTLE of YORKTOWN. While ALEXANDER HAMILTON was capturing REDOUBT NUMBER 9. I would be glad to photocopy this informaton from the CYCLOPAEDIA of FRATERNTIES 1907 and send it to you. The SOCIETY of CINCINNATI today operates a secret museum in Washington DC. The surveyor who layed out the Satanic street lines in Washington DC in 1792 MAJOR CHARLES PIERRE LE’NFANT was also a member of the SOCIETY of CINCINNATI. Ok I just found the address for the SOCIETY of CINCINNATI MUSEUM in Washington DC. The address is 2118 MASSACHUSETTS AVENUE NW. WASHINGTON DC. Michael Clark (903) 648-2386

Subject: Re: PLANTAGENET FAMILY THE NEPHILIM BLOODLINE

I guess I’m not surprised at your response. It does seem farfetched. At least it did to me when I was first confronted with it. However there is no doubt about it. The PLANTAGENET ROYAL FAMILY of England are descendants of the PHAOROAHS. They carry a SIX FINGER GENOME with TYPE O BLOOD. And the book I quoted. THE PLANTAGENET ANCESTRY by Douglas Richardson lists 205 families of the “NEPHILIM BLOODLINE ( GENESIS 6:4 ) in the KING JAMES BIBLE”:http://www.alienresistance.org/fulldisclosure.htm who immigrated to the United States in the 1600’s and 1700’s. And GEORGE WASHINGTON’S FAMILY was one of them. Since most Americans were sleeping during World History 101 let me remind you that WILLIAM the CONQUEROR invaded ENgland in 1066. From NORMANDY in France. WILLIAM the CONQUEROR was a member of the PLANTAGENET FAMILY and carried the SIX FINGER GENOME. The last PLANTAGENET KING of ENGLAND was RICHARD the THIRD who was defeated in the BATTLE of BOSWORTH FIELD by HENRY the EARL of RICHMOND. This was after RICHARD had murdered the TWO LITTLE BOYS who were the rightful heirs to the Throne of England. PRINCE EDWARD twelve years old. And PRINCE WILLIAM ten years old. Both had been locked up in the TOWER of LONDON by their uncle RICHARD the DUKE of GLOUCESTER. DOnt worry about the VAMPIRE GENOME at this point. ( the PPOX GENE ). I will explain that later. mike from dallas

“Israel, Mossad, Iran and a Nuclear False Flag Attack”:http://www.gnn.tv/headlines/4155/Israel_Mossad_Iran_and_a_Nuclear_False_Flag_Attack

Prior knowledge to criminal Activity is Documenting ‘Intent’ and ‘Motive’. The evidence gathered during an investigation show who stands to gain.

This attempt to use Terror Attacks as a simple plan clearly used after 9/11
to Invade Iraq, with Intelligence already suggesting Iran is the fundamental
Target for another U.S. lead Invasion. China and Russia sit positioned to benefit from the U.S. wasting it’s Political asset’s on failed foreign Policy.

[Posted By neverknwo]
By by R. Leland Lehrman
Republished from Physic9/11.net
The danger of a faked nuclear attack on America
On April 18th of 2005, I released a public advisory, reproduced below, regarding the danger of a faked nuclear attack on America, to be staged by rogue British, American and Israeli Mossad operatives, assisted by select criminal, compromised, drug-addicted or mind-controlled “Muslim” patsies and designed to support a global war against Iran and Islam. With Congress in recess and Bush on vacation, the exact conditions preceeding the 9/11 attacks are now being replicated. The attack would also be used to further legitimate the building of the genocidal wall in Jerusalem and possibly even an expansion of, rather than a pullout from, the settlements in Gaza and the West Bank in furtherance of total Israeli dominance in the Middle East. The attack would be aided by Israeli partisans in the United States, and will be stage-managed in the Congress by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and its attendant PR firms and media empires. As a descendant of Russian Jews, I consider it a particularly important civic responsibility to expose the deception and danger of Zionism and its terrorist agency, the Mossad, who will probably furnish the patsies. The Mossad is a leading candidate for architect of the 9/11 attacks. This suppressed German Intelligence Document reveals how senior Israelis knew in advance about the attacks and “urgently wished that no attempt was made to prevent the attacks.” Here’s a longer quote:

“It is very evident from surveillance conducted against Mossad agents in the Federal Republic as well as interceptions of Israeli diplomatic communication from the Federal Republic to Tel Aviv, that the Mossad has successfully penetrated various extremist Arab groups in both the Federal Republic and the United States.

These investigations disclosed in late May of 2001 that an attack was to be made against certain specified targets in the American cities of Washington and New York. But it was apparent that the Mossad was not only fully aware of these attacks well in advance but actually, through their own agents inside these Arab groups, assisted in the planning and the eventual execution of the attacks.

That the Israeli government was fully aware of these attacks is absolutely certain and proven. Diplomatic traffic between the Israeli Embassy in the Federal Republic and the Israeli Foreign Office made it very clear that Minister President Sharon was fully aware of this pending attack and urgently wished that no attempt was made to prevent the attacks.

Although the Israeli officials were instructed to warn the American intelligence community that some kind of an attack might be possible, at no time were the specific dates and targets (known at that time to Israeli officials) to be given to the Americans.

The rationale for this attitude was expressed in a conversation on August 1, 2001, between the Israeli Military Attaché in the Federal Republic to a member of the Israeli General Staff. There it was stated that Israel believed an attack on the continental United States would so inflame American public opinion that they would permit Israel to “cleanse” their state of “Arab terrorists and those who support such terrorists”. This “cleansing” was explained as the expulsion of all Arabs, and even Christian groups, from the Palestine area.”

The physics911.net website has additional supporting evidence for Mossad involvement in 9/11 in its background information section. Although the Mossad has been caught perpetrating fake terrorist operations, most people still don’t know about it. It is often asserted that Israel and Zionism are in fact themselves patsies of the Anglo-American establishment, but given the fact that Talmudic Zionists like the Rothschilds have controlled international central banking and freemasonry for centuries, I am not convinced of that hypothesis, though I include it here for balance. Interestingly, at the very core of secret Freemasonry doctrine is what is known as British Israelism, an assertion that the British are in fact a lost tribe of Israel and that as such Britain is included in the proverbial covenant of the Chosen People. Who is at the top of the Pyramid? Why, Lucifer himself of course, whether you acknowledge it metaphorically or literally. All the “identifiable groups” are expendable within the divide and conquer methodology.

Since the US Army War College already acknowledges that the Mossad “has capability to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act,” it may well be that the FBI has finally realized how dangerous the Israeli Fifth Column is, having begun to tighten the noose around the legendary Israeli spying operation in America by arresting Larry Franklin, Doug Feith’s deputy in the Office of Special Plans, origin of the fraudulent Iraqi weapons of mass destruction intelligence. Not yet indicted, but identified as Co-Conspirator 1 and 2 along with Franklin are the two top AIPAC operatives to whom he passed higly classified intel: Steven Rosen, head of Policy and Keith Weissman, Iran specialist. Israeli sources expect Weissman and Rosen to be indicted for espionage in the coming weeks.

Perhaps the two largest factions of the New World Order, Skull and Bones and the Zionists are now going into open warfare, as the Bush Administration attempts to clean out the neoconservatives, discipline the Israeli military and enforce the two state solution.

Predictably, the word in pro-Zionist circles is that the FBI investigation by Counter Intelligence Chief David Szady into the Larry Franklin affair is anti-semitic and driven by a CIA old guard. Some “Russian” security sources which cannot be confirmed provide tantalizing intelligence suggesting the same thing, and repeat the meme of a nuclear terrorist attack in the USA, staged by the Zionist/Skull and Bones hierarchy including their neoconservative covert agents.

Victor Ostrovsky, Mossad defector, has indicated that George Bush Senior may have been targeted by Mossad for assassination due to his attempt at enforcing a two state solution through cancellation of American loan guarantees to Israel during a “peace process” he started. George W. Bush continues at least the appearance of peace talks as related in The Jewish Press: “Bush made his position clear: Israel’s settlement expansion in the West Bank must stop. “I told the prime minister of my concern that Israel not undertake any activity that contravenes “road map” obligations or prejudices final-status negotiations,” Bush said, referring to the “road map” peace plan his administration launched three years ago. “Therefore, Israel should remove unauthorized outposts and meet its road map obligations regarding settlements in the West Bank.” Of course, staging a fight is an easy thing to do when you are a professional deceiver, which description suits both Zionists and Bonesmen quite well. After all, the source for Ostrovsky’s allegation was most probably former head of Mossad Ephraim Halevy, now national security advisor to Ariel Sharon and the author of a recent call to perpetual world war with Islam. Halevy’s other famous warning was that “should one of the more severe scenarios come to pass, the United States will have no choice but to deepen its presence in the Middle East. To that end, it will have to renew the draft, to ensure that there are enough forces to deal with developing situations in countries like Saudi Arabia.”

The AIPAC affair is only the tip of a giant iceberg that goes back even beyond the Balfour Declaration and the role of Zionists in precipitating America’s involvement in World War I. It is now generally acknowledged that Lord Balfour’s letter to Lord Rothschild – allowing for the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine – led to a massive shift in allegiance by international elitist Zionists from the Axis to the Allies. The British, under “Lawrence of Arabia” managed to convince the Arabs to fight with them against the Turkish Ottoman Empire, which allied with Germany. However, the Palestinians were betrayed to the Zionists and the “United Nations” after Britain’s attempts at keeping the peace were destroyed by Israeli terrorists such as eventual Prime Minister, Menachem Begin. The Balfour Declaration also led to the massive pressure applied by American Zionists like Louis Brandeis and Bernard Baruch, head of the War Industries Board, on President Woodrow Wilson to enter the war and to create a one world government [League of Nations] as prophesied by David Ben Gurion in Look Magazine, 1962. Indeed, Benjamin Freedman, a high-level Jewish defector from Zionism who was part of the Wilson administration stated openly that International Zionists guaranteed American assistance to the Allies in World War I in return for the Balfour Declaration. The thesis certainly fits the facts. Here is Freedman’s statement: “They [the Zionists] told England: ‘We will guarantee to bring the United States into the war as your ally, to fight with you on your side, if you will promise us Palestine after you win the war.’ In other words, they made this deal: ‘We will get the United States into this war as your ally. The price you must pay us is Palestine after you have won the war and defeated Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey.’” Freedman goes on to state that even Zionist leaders such as Nahum Sokolow acknowledged that “the feeling against the Jews in Germany is due to the fact that they realized that this great defeat (WWI) was brought about by our (Zionist) intercession and bringing the United States into the war against them.” Freedman also acknowledges the British use of Zionism in furtherance of its own aims. Peering back into history with Freedman, we watch as Freedman paints a vivid scene: “I was ‘confidential man’ to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., who was chairman of the Finance Committee, and I was liaison between him and Rollo Wells, the treasurer. So I sat in these meetings with President Wilson at the head of the table, and all the others, and I heard them drum into President Wilson’s brain the graduated income tax and what has become the Federal Reserve, and also indoctrinate him with the Zionist movement. Justice Brandeis and President Wilson were just as close as the two fingers on this hand, and President Woodrow Wilson was just as incompetent when it came to determining what was going on as a newborn baby. And that’s how they got us into World War I, while we all slept.”
This background is necessary because those without a grasp of it will be less able to understand and assimilate what I must now relate, which is that the plan to take American into a war with Iran, which is supposed to be a global war with Islam to precede one world dictatorship, continues apace with increasing warnings from the military, the press and the research community regarding a nuclear or other major attack on America, perhaps as soon as this August.

Fortunately, due to the heroic efforts of the alternative media, the London bombings have now been exposed as another terrorist exercise gone live by executive New World Order. We have now seen two terrorist attacks masked by what are called drills: 9/11 and 7/7. When is the next terrorist attack drill slated for the USA?

This August.

What type of attack does the drill “simulate.”

A nuclear attack.

According to Dr. Stephen Sniegoski, writing for the excellent website War Without End, and elsewhere on the internet, “Richard Perle was the big hit of this May’s AIPAC conference in Washington with his call for an attack on Iran. The danger of Iran was featured in an AIPAC multimedia show, “Iran’s Path to the Bomb.” As the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank described the multimedia show: “The exhibit, worthy of a theme park, begins with a narrator condemning the International Atomic Energy Agency for being ‘unwilling to conclude that Iran is developing nuclear weapons’ (it had similar reservations about Iraq) and the Security Council because it ‘has yet to take up the issue.’ In a succession of rooms, visitors see flashing lights and hear rumbling sounds as Dr. Seuss-like contraptions make yellowcake uranium, reprocess plutonium, and pop out nuclear warheads like so many gallons of hummus for an AIPAC conference.”

Worse still, former CIA/DIA agent Philip Giraldi exposes current US nuclear preparations for a response to another 9/11 type attack:

OK ANOTHER UNO UPDATE:

FOX NEWS TODAY THIS MORNING ONE OF THE ANCHOR’S MENTIONED HE SAW RUSSIAN MAPS OF INDIANA BEING A MAJOR TARGET FOR A NUCLEAR STRIKE.

THIS WEEKEND IS GETTING REALLY INTERSESTNG THE BIGGEST SPORTING EVENT IS
TAKING PLACE AT THE BRICKYARD ADD TO FACT THAT I LIVE NEAR THERE AND HAVE BEEN THERE, IT IS VERY EASY TO GET A VEHICLE INSIDE THE TRACK WITHOUT BEING SEARCHED. NOT TO MENTION A PERFECT OPPURTUNITY TO TRIGGER A SUIT CASE NUKE.

I JUST PICKED UP THIS SCOOP TOO WHICH MADE ME START THINKING,


“The Coming Attacks On America”:http://judicial-inc.biz/Nuclear_attacks_on_america.htm

There Will Be A Series Of Attacks

The first group will be a series of conventional attacks on key public installations

The Main Attack Will Be Nuclear

A city like Indy, with its geographical location near Chicago, and it’s population (200,000), fits the profile.

Setting The Stage

Israeli agent Abu Nidal hijacked jets for 30 years, and Hollywood flooded our psyches with countless movies about ruthless Arabs and blood-crazed Muslims. After 30 years of Zionist orchestrated ‘Muslim hijackings’, America readily accepts that Muslims orchestrated 9/11.

Years of Hollywood’s tripe sets it’s seed. Over the last five years, the Mossad blew up seven Israeli buses (full of immigrants), and sent the bus hulks on trailers around the world, so everyone can see what devils the Muslims are. Conveniently, at the height of Israel’s suffering, there is a bus attack in London.

*“A Flood Of Nuke America Movies”:http://uk.imdb.com/title/tt0094125/

Over the last few years, Hollywood has produced a number of movies and mini-series portraying a Muslim nuclear attack on America. Now, they also use internet propaganda

Why The Different Targets?

There is nothing like attacking an ‘All American’ sporting event, in order to enrage the public. A mall attack hits home, due to it being seen as a attack against the economy, and a theme park is aimed at children. Targeting children is a time-honored Zionist technique, due to the massive psychological trauma and angering that it inflicts on the victims.

Hollywood Plants The Seeds

A sporting event allows a multitude of professional real -feed cameras to document the event without suspicion.

The Nuclear Attack

It will be a sizeable nuclear bomb detonated in a smaller Midwest city. There will be at least 200,000 dead. It will be at night, and it will be captured live through a TV feed.

Ever since 9-11 I’ve been hearing predictions about when the next major terror event will take place in America. So far all of these predictions have been wrong. The reason is that whenever the expectation is there, the shock value will be less, and that is not what the true forces of terror around the world desire. However, with the way the war in Iraq is going, their opportunity to accomplish what they set out to in the middle east is rapidly fading. When people become desperate they do desperate things, and as we saw in London, they will not hesitate to use terror to achieve their political objectives. The Patriot Act extension was due for vote in the House, and sure enough, just in the nick of time, 7/7, and on the morning of the vote a little shot in the arm on 7/21 came along. “Shock and awe” is the reaction they need from you in order to achieve your submission to oppression. In order to get this result now there are two possibilities.

1. A major attack in America on a powerful symbol or symbols that
people associate with American power. 2. A comparitively small attack
such as London, but with the help of the corporate media and top
political lizards, Americans will be whipped into a frenzy of fear
and confusion. Since it would be less costly, and since it would
achieve virtually the same result, I would have guessed until
recently that number 2 would be the most likely scenario. However, if
they in fact do have a major operation planned that would require a
fear factor of a higher potency, such as an excuse to launch a major
attack against Iran, then number 1 would be required.

It is becoming obvious that they plan to do something soon. They
cannot just go ahead and launch a nuclear attack on Iran Carte
Blanche as much as they would apparently want to. That just wouldn’t
fly, and they know it. So, what other options do the War Profiteers
have, in order to have a legitimate Raison D Etre to Nuke Iran? False
Flag Operations! Black Ops! Another Operation Northwoods. They are
Staging Terror. Every Day. The CIA controlled Media plants the seeds
in the minds of the Brainwashed Sheep.

They are Staging and Scripting Terror, in Britain and here as well.
MI6 and the CIA are in on it up to their necks, and they have the
useful Muslims as their Stooges! So, with this scenario, it’s likely
you will have More False Flags coming our way soon in order they will

“National Guard apologizes for explosions”:http://www.wrgb.com/news/regional/regional.asp?selection=article_38437

(Sandwich, MASS – AP) — The National Guard is apologizing for failing to notify the public before it set off explosions at Camp Edwards.

The twin explosions Thursday night to get rid of old artillery shells prompted worried 9-1-1 calls from residents.

National Guard Lieutenant Colonel Paul Greg Smith says they “made a mistake” in not notifying local police, fire, and city halls.

Sandwich and Bourne police said they fielded dozens of 9-1-1 calls.

The Cape Cod Times reports today that Guard officials are scheduling a public meeting August 17th in Mashpee to speak with the community about what happened.

Normally the Guard gives public officials 48 hours notice of controlled explosions

A Dragon Eye view of the Reptilian Jungle

Emerging from the landscape, and shaped by nature, the design will create a simple symbolic link – a bridge – between old and new, between people and country and China with the world.

The design introduces an innovative solution to the provision of temporary seats during the Olympic Games. All the temporary seats are under cover and all seats enjoy excellent views to the field of play. It adopts high technology principles for operational management and interaction with the environment.

The moving roof created like two leaves is simple, elegant and economical. After the games, people will be able to walk, via a safe and secure path, along over the leading edge of the roof.

The extended “wings” of the roof, as an integral function of the moving roof and a fundamental part of an efficient roof structure, allow for up to 200,000 people to have a direct experience of the Games .

ATOMIC SCARE AT BEACH Aug 6 2005”:http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/tm_objectid=15826732&method=full&siteid=89488&headline=atomic-scare-at-beach—name_page.html

A STRETCH of beach was sealed off yesterday after the discovery of a radioactive substance.

The scare at Aberdeen’s popular waterfront came after a routine inspection.

But last night, after an investigation, experts insisted there was no danger to the public and said the closure of a100-metre section was ‘purely precautionary’.

They were trying to establish the source of the contamination.

A company based near the beach, which cleans equipment contaminated with radioactivity during offshore work, suspended operations yesterday.

But the investigation team refused to point the finger of blame.

It was believed the radioactivity could have come from materials used in the offshore industry.

Drilling operations in the North Sea release naturally occurring radioactivity.

The down-hole pipes, pumps and other equipment have to be decontaminated.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, leading the investigation, stressed the find was not to be confused with radioactive particles regularly found on the beach near the Dounreay nuclear plant

“Saudis alerted Britain to looming London attacks: Sunday papers”:http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20050806/wl_mideast_afp/britainattackssaudi_050806232547

Sat Aug 6, 7:25 PM ET

LONDON (AFP) – Saudi officials alerted Britain several weeks before the deadly July 7 bombings in London that a terror attack was being planned, two Sunday newspapers reported.

ADVERTISEMENT

The Observer quoted a security official in the Saudi capital Riyadh as saying that information was passed to MI5 and MI6, Britain’s domestic and foreign intelligence agencies respectively.

The Sunday Telegraph quoted the Saudi ambassador to Britain, Prince Turki al-Faisal, as saying that details of a possible conspiracy to attack London — apparently extracted from terrorism suspects in Saudi Arabia — had been given to British intelligence.

“There were reports passed on to your authorities several months ago (in April-May) in general terms of a heightened expectancy of attacks on London,” said the ambassador, a former chief of Saudi intelligence.

Security sources played down the reports. The Observer quoted one source as “categorically” denying that any specific information had been received that could have averted the July 7 attacks.

The source said they “did not recognize” the details of the Saudi claims, which came to light one month to the day after the attacks.

“Simulation to gas up midtown”:http://www.newsday.com/news/health/ny-hsgas054371646aug05,0,7195042.story?coll=ny-health-headlines

August 5, 2005

Amid heightened anti-terrorism vigilance in New York City’s subways, a mammoth Department of Homeland Security-sponsored project starting as early as Saturday will seek to answer how harmful gases might disperse through midtown’s streets and the warren of subway tunnels beneath them.

The simulation, which will use colorless, odorless and harmless “tracer” gases, follows a smaller effort in March that focused on the Madison Square Garden area. This time, a team of more than 150 researchers and volunteers working on the Urban Dispersion Program’s second field study will fan out over a much larger section of midtown, ranging from 37th to 59th streets and from 10th to Third avenues, and including stations along the Broadway subway line and other lines in the area.

Scientists will release the gases at four of eight possible locations above ground, depending on the wind, within an office building and on a subway platform of the Broadway line at 50th Street and Seventh Avenue.

Six separate experiments are planned over the next three weeks, with specific dates dependent on the weather, and the subway portion planned for the final three release dates.

“We’ll be looking at the interaction of the subways in how the gases are dispersed,” said Paul Kalb, a senior research engineer at Brookhaven National Laboratory. “If we release on the ground level, the street level, some of the material may be drawn into the subways and moved around that way.”

Likewise, releasing a gas in the subway will tell researchers whether that gas remains within the tunnel system or drifts up to street level, and how it disperses.

One of the substances is known as PFT, or perfluorocarbon tracer gas, a safe and extensively used labeling compound. Jerry Allwine, the project’s lead scientist and an engineer with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash., said the second type of benign tracer gas, known as sulfur hexafluoride, also has been used for years. With it, scientists can measure exposure rates at one-second intervals.

To collect the reams of data expected from the experiments, electronic monitors will be positioned on rooftops, in subway stations, in baskets hanging from lampposts, in a half-dozen unmarked vans, and in the pockets of volunteers simulating the movements of pedestrians and subway riders.

Another experiment in a midtown office building will analyze how air flows inside and exchanges with the air outside.

“Scientist amazed no dirty blast yet”:http://www.theage.com.au/news/war-on-terror/scientist-amazed-no-dirty-blast-yet/2005/08/06/1123125945285.html?oneclick=true
By Mark Russell
August 7, 2005

A nuclear physicist said yesterday he was surprised that terrorists had not yet used a dirty bomb to attack Australia. “I’m amazed it hasn’t happened already; I’m expecting it at any time,” said Dr Frank Barnaby, who was an observer at the British nuclear tests at Maralinga, South Australia, in 1953.

Dr Barnaby, the keynote speaker at a conference in Melbourne run by the Medical Association for Prevention of War, on the theme Nuclear Terror — 60 Years On, said a dirty bomb was the “most probable nuclear attack because it’s so easy to do.”

The unpredictability of biological and chemical weapons, he said, meant terrorists were more likely to focus on using weapons such as a dirty bomb.

He said a dirty bomb consisted of a conventional high explosive (for example, semtex, dynamite or TNT), incendiary material (such as thermite) surrounding the conventional explosive, and a quantity of a radioisotope, probably placed at the centre of the explosive.

Dr Barnaby said: “When the conventional high explosive is detonated, the radioactive material would be vaporised. The fire ignited by the incendiary material would carry the radioactivity up into the atmosphere. It would then be blown downwind, spreading radioactivity.

“A dirty bomb is not the same as a nuclear weapon in the normal sense of the phrase — it does not involve a nuclear explosion.

“The detonation of a dirty bomb is likely to result in some deaths but would not result in the hundreds of thousands of fatalities that could be caused by the explosion in a city of a crude nuclear weapon.”

Dr Barnaby said that, if a dirty bomb was exploded in a city, people would most likely be exposed to a relatively small dose of radiation.

“The main potential impact of a dirty bomb is psychological. It would cause considerable fear, panic and social disruption, exactly the effects terrorists wish to achieve,” he said.

“The public fear of radiation is very great indeed, some say irrationally so.

“The explosion of a dirty bomb could result in the contamination of an area of a city and the surrounding areas with radioactivity.”

He said areas as large as tens of square kilometres could be contaminated with radioactivity to levels that would require evacuation and decontamination.

“Radioactivity will be carried away on people’s clothes and spread by vehicles passing through the contaminated areas,” he said.

“People may also ingest radioactivity by eating contaminated food and drinking contaminated water.”

Dr Barnaby said it was of the utmost importance to prevent terrorists from acquiring plutonium and uranium (needed to make a primitive nuclear explosive) or enough radioisotopes and plutonium to build a dirty bomb.

There were literally millions of sources of radioactive material, he said.

FAT MAN: The first nuclear bomb, which was dropped on Nagasaki

“Countdown to apocalypse”:http://www.thesundaymail.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5936,16170251%255E5422,00.html

STEPHEN WALKER
07aug05
DON Hornig stared up at the makeshift tower as the wind and rain whipped through its steel latticework. The storm that had been building throughout the day had erupted in all its fury.

Flashes of lightning lit the mountains to the south, and the desert echoed with the sound of thunder. The tower stood more than 30m tall, and by then, the clouds were racing so low across the sky that he could barely see the top.

He began to climb. The wet steel slipped between his fingers and the rain stung his eyes as he headed for the flimsy tin shack resting on the wooden platform high above him.

Once there, he crouched down inside, squashing himself next to a massive four-tonne steel drum that took up almost every centimetre.

Cables sprouted from its sides like a spillage of arteries or entrails, as if it were somehow not inert at all but a growing being, a fetus awaiting the moment of its birth.

It certainly seemed to have a life of its own, which is why Hornig and its other creators had given it a name. Several names, in fact – The Beast, The Thing, The Gadget, The Device. Sometimes, they just called it It.

The one thing they never called it was what it actually was: the world’s first atomic bomb.

And in a few hours, on the Trinity test site in the bleak desert of the US state of New Mexico on July 16, 1945, it was going to be detonated for the first time.

This was, almost certainly, the biggest and most expensive scientific experiment in history. Hidden in the ground across the surrounding plain were crusher gauges, geophones, seismographs, gamma sentinels, and a hundred other arcane instruments – the most elaborate, intricate spider’s web of technology ever assembled.

But it all came back to that lonely steel tower and the tin shack at its summit, the hub of mankind’s first attempt to dabble in the very guts of creation, unleashing new, monstrous fires over the Earth.

They called the spot Ground Zero. A number of different things could happen when the switch was pressed. The bomb could fail to go off. Or it could detonate with a varying magnitude of explosion.

Or, as one Nobel Prize-winning scientist believed possible, it could set fire to the Earth’s atmosphere and in the process destroy all life on the planet. The difficulty was that no one knew.

As the time ticked by before they found out, Hornig had been ordered up the tower by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist in charge of the top-secret, three-year project now reaching its climax.

Oppenheimer had become increasingly nervous as the test approached. He had barely slept, despite doping himself to the gills with sedatives, and lost so much weight that his crumpled suit hung limply on his tall, cadaverous frame.

He downed litres and litres of black coffee and smoked endless cigarettes with short, sharp, almost manic puffs. He was an exhausted, fragile, brilliant man facing the greatest challenge of his life.

Now he was obsessing about security. In those final hours he wanted someone to babysit his bomb overnight.

Hornig, a young Harvard-trained explosives expert who had designed the so-called X-unit – the trigger that would start the detonation – had seemed the obvious man for the job.

Which was why he found himself at the top of a metal tower, in the middle of a violent electric storm, sitting beside an atomic bomb.

In the dim light from a single overhead bulb, as the rain pelted on the roof above him, he settled down with a paperback to while away the time.

He flipped through the pages of Desert Island Decameron, a cheap thriller, but other thoughts kept intruding on his mind.

After all, he knew better than anyone that a chance lightning strike could perform precisely the same function as one of his X-unit triggers, igniting the 2.5 tonnes of conventional high explosive around the bomb’s nuclear core.

Even if the device failed to go nuclear, that was quite enough to destroy him, his book, the tower and the heavily armed guards standing at its base, not to mention a sizeable lump of New Mexico real estate.

It hardly helped that a trial X-unit had already been set off by an electric discharge from a passing cloud just two days before, instantly releasing its 5500-volt firing signal.

Hornig survived that time because there was no bomb attached to it. Now, there would be no escape.

Meanwhile, in a concrete and lead-lined bunker 8km away, where the 45-second countdown would be initiated, his fellow scientists waited anxiously, praying for the weather to improve.

Everyone knew how much rested on the drum Hornig was watching over. World War II was in its last throes. Germany had surrendered in Europe, but in the Pacific the Japanese continued to resist.

For three years American troops had battled their way, island by island towards the enemy heartland. The Japanese fought tenaciously – their culture regarded surrender as a disgrace.

Thousands of kamikaze pilots slammed their planes into American ships. The civilian population of mainland Japan – men, women and children – was arming itself with bamboo spears to fight invaders hand-to-hand.

Conquering Japan the conventional way would cost tens of thousands of American lives. The bomb, as United States President Harry S. Truman knew, could alter everything.

Not only would it force Japan to surrender, it promised to give him a decisive edge in his dealings with the Soviet Union, the emerging new power in the post-war world, and its ruthless leader, Joseph Stalin.

Provided, that is, that it worked.

It was Truman’s predecessor, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who had started the atom bomb project after fears that Hitler’s scientists were designing a similar doomsday weapon in Germany.

Every dollar that could be spared – an astonishing two billion of them – had been spent on research. Thousands of the best scientists in the land had been whisked away to secret laboratories.

A 175,000ha industrial complex had been developed to produce the plutonium that lay at the bomb’s heart.

This strange metal had not even existed four years previously. It was man-made, not found in nature, the product of a fantastic latter-day alchemy that created new elements by tampering with the most basic units of matter.

It was named after Pluto, the god of the dead. And it had the potential to unleash hell.

Two days earlier, at the project’s laboratory at Los Alamos, near Santa Fe, two hemispheres of plutonium had been packed in gold foil and placed inside a magnesium suitcase fitted with shock-absorbing rubber bumpers. Such was the delicacy of the operation that designing the suitcase had taken six months.

It had then been driven under armed guard into the desert.

At Trinity, in the front room of a ranch whose owners had been forced to leave – no explanation offered – an army general formally signed a receipt for the plutonium, worth unknown millions of dollars.

Jokingly, he asked if he could hold it first, to feel what he was buying. He put on rubber gloves and picked it up. It felt curiously warm to the touch, as if it were alive. What he was feeling was radioactivity.

The artificially created element was breaking down in his hand, its atoms ridding themselves of billions of neutrons, which – under certain conditions – could in turn split other atoms in two, releasing levels of energy hitherto undreamed of in the history of humankind.

The general signed the receipt and handed the plutonium to a physicist, who, on that ranch house table, assembled the components that would kick-start the chain reaction of a nuclear explosion.

The completed unit was placed in a ventilated cage, like some sort of highly dangerous wild animal, before being driven to the foot of the tower. It was then slowly lowered into a drum and packed carefully with high explosives.

The fit had to be perfect – the slightest air gap could turn the bomb into a dud. To reduce friction, the explosives were dusted with Johnson’s Baby Powder.

Scotch tape was used to keep them in alignment.

It all seemed disturbingly fragile, and a series of last-minute disasters frayed the scientist’s nerves. Hornig’s boss George Kistiakowsky bet a month’s salary against $10 that it would be all right on the night. It was a sign of Oppenheimer’s pessimistic state of mind that he took the bet.

And now, to cap everything, the thunderstorm had brought a host of new complications.

The winds were shifting all over the place, and if they settled in the wrong direction when the bomb went off, hundreds of tonnes of debris and radioactive cloud would hit nearby towns.

No one could say where the cloud might go, which is why there were teams of fallout monitors in the immediate area and far beyond.

They were linked to a hotel room in Santa Fe 260km away.

The officials there were empowered to take command if the base camp was wiped out, to declare martial law and order the evacuation of any town in the cloud’s path.

Oppenheimer dithered. Should he go ahead with the firing as planned or call the whole thing off?

It did not help that, in the Trinity mess hall, his staff offered their own suggestions until his head was spinning.

As Oppenheimer fretted, a big, beefy army officer entered the room. General Leslie Groves was the overall boss of the atom bomb program, and ruled it like a tyrant.

His megalomania had made him reviled and feared but also admired.

It was Groves who had named it the Manhattan Project – after the location of its original offices in New York – and he presided over his secret empire (at one point more than 100,000 men and women) with total confidence.

A commanding figure whose uniform spread tightly over an ill-concealed paunch (he always kept 1kg of chocolate bars in his office safe, along with top-secret files on the bomb), he crushed any obstacles in his path, bullying and smashing his way to success.

A US Government committee had fixed the budget for the entire project at $133 million, but he over-ran it in the first few weeks and went on spending breathtaking sums without hesitation.

An engineer by training, he was a workaholic security freak who loathed scientists, damning them as a bunch of hopelessly impractical, left-wing “longhairs”.

He distrusted Oppenheimer because of his temperament, intellectual demeanour and open association with known communists (including his mistress) and had set a network of agents to tap, tail and bug him.

Yet he had picked him for the job because he knew he would deliver. In fact, Oppenheimer’s secretary, Anne Wilson, believed that Groves was slightly in love with her boss.

She remembered the general saying: “He has the bluest eyes you’ve ever seen, and they look right through you.” Hers was perhaps the shrewdest insight into this peculiar, unholy, extraordinarily productive and ultimately world-changing partnership.

Now, Groves stepped into rescue Oppenheimer from the warring scientists with their contradictory views on what to do. Away from the crowd, the pair agreed to push back the planned firing time of 4am to give the storm time to pass.

“U.S missions to close in Saudi over threat”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/08/07/AR2005080700255_pf.html

RIYADH (Reuters) – U.S. diplomatic missions in Saudi Arabia will be closed on Monday and Tuesday because of a threat against U.S. buildings, the U.S. embassy said on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia swiftly responded, saying it had no solid information about any imminent threat in the kingdom.

A U.S. statement said the embassy in Riyadh and the consulates in the Red Sea city of Jeddah and the eastern city of Dhahran would be closed on Aug. 8 and 9 “in response to a threat against U.S. government buildings in the kingdom.”

The embassy advised U.S. citizens to maintain a high level of vigilance and take steps to increase security awareness.

But Saudi Interior Ministry spokesman General Mansour al-Turki told reporters: “We have no confirmed information about any imminent terrorist threat in the kingdom.

“We are taking all necessary security measures to confront any possibility,” he added.

Last month, the United States warned Americans in Saudi Arabia that militants were planning fresh attacks in the world’s biggest oil exporter, and later banned military personnel from traveling around the kingdom.

The warning came as Saudi security forces said they found an arms cache outside Riyadh with two tonnes of chemicals used by suspected al Qaeda militants to make bombs deployed in attacks on Western housing compounds and state buildings.

U.S. diplomatic missions in the kingdom have been closed briefly several times in recent years because of threats.

A statement posted on the U.S. embassy Web site on Saturday warned of “ongoing security concerns in the region, including for seaborne vessels traveling in the southern Red Sea.”

Supporters of Saudi-born al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden have waged a bombing campaign in the kingdom since 2003 to expel Westerners from Islam’s birthplace and destabilize the pro-Western royal family.

The violence has killed at least 91 foreign nationals and Saudi civilians, 41 security force members and 112 militants.

In 2003 suicide bombers hit several compounds housing foreigners, and last year gunmen made a series of attacks on Westerners, including a daylight raid on the U.S. consulate in Jeddah.

King Abdullah, who came to the throne this month after King Fahd died, is expected to continue the government crackdown on militants, which analysts say has eroded al Qaeda’s network in Saudi Arabia.

Authorities have killed or arrested all but three men on a list of 26 most wanted suspects published in 2003. In June, officials issued a list of 36 more wanted men they are still hunting.

*“War Plans Drafted To Counter Terror Attacks in U.S.
Domestic Effort Is Big Shift for Military”:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/08/07/AR2005080700843.html*

By Bradley Graham
Washington Post Staff Writer
Monday, August 8, 2005; Page A01

COLORADO SPRINGS — The U.S. military has devised its first-ever war plans for guarding against and responding to terrorist attacks in the United States, envisioning 15 potential crisis scenarios and anticipating several simultaneous strikes around the country, according to officers who drafted the plans.

The classified plans, developed here at Northern Command headquarters, outline a variety of possible roles for quick-reaction forces estimated at as many as 3,000 ground troops per attack, a number that could easily grow depending on the extent of the damage and the abilities of civilian response teams.

e-Qaeda The Rise of a Radical Webmaster Briton Used Internet As His Bully Pulpit Babar Ahmad, a 31-year-old computer whiz and mechanical engineer, was hailed as a big catch by U.S. law enforcement officials when he was arrested here one year ago on charges that he ran a network of Web sites that served as a propaganda and fundraising front for Islamic extremists.

The possible scenarios range from “low end,” relatively modest crowd-control missions to “high-end,” full-scale disaster management after catastrophic attacks such as the release of a deadly biological agent or the explosion of a radiological device, several officers said.

Some of the worst-case scenarios involve three attacks at the same time, in keeping with a Pentagon directive earlier this year ordering Northcom, as the command is called, to plan for multiple simultaneous attacks.

The war plans represent a historic shift for the Pentagon, which has been reluctant to become involved in domestic operations and is legally constrained from engaging in law enforcement. Indeed, defense officials continue to stress that they intend for the troops to play largely a supporting role in homeland emergencies, bolstering police, firefighters and other civilian response groups.

But the new plans provide for what several senior officers acknowledged is the likelihood that the military will have to take charge in some situations, especially when dealing with mass-casualty attacks that could quickly overwhelm civilian resources.

“In my estimation, [in the event of] a biological, a chemical or nuclear attack in any of the 50 states, the Department of Defense is best positioned — of the various eight federal agencies that would be involved — to take the lead,” said Adm. Timothy J. Keating, the head of Northcom, which coordinates military involvement in homeland security operations.

The plans present the Pentagon with a clearer idea of the kinds and numbers of troops and the training that may be required to build a more credible homeland defense force. They come at a time when senior Pentagon officials are engaged in an internal, year-long review of force levels and weapons systems, attempting to balance the heightened requirements of homeland defense against the heavy demands of overseas deployments in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Keating expressed confidence that existing military assets are sufficient to meet homeland security needs. Maj. Gen. Richard J. Rowe, Northcom’s chief operations officer, agreed, but he added that “stress points” in some military capabilities probably would result if troops were called on to deal with multiple homeland attacks.

Debate and Analysis


————————————————————————————————————————

Several people on the staff here and at the Pentagon said in interviews that the debate and analysis within the U.S. government regarding the extent of the homeland threat and the resources necessary to guard against it remain far from resolved.

The command’s plans consist of two main documents. One, designated CONPLAN 2002 and consisting of more than 1,000 pages, is said to be a sort of umbrella document that draws together previously issued orders for homeland missions and covers air, sea and land operations. It addresses not only post-attack responses but also prevention and deterrence actions aimed at intercepting threats before they reach the United States.

The other, identified as CONPLAN 0500, deals specifically with managing the consequences of attacks represented by the 15 scenarios.

Roadmap to Martial Law

London Attacks From Another Perspective

By

Stan Goff

With comment by Michael C. Ruppert

[Perhaps the greatest immediate lessons, leads, clues and food for thought from yesterday’s London bombings is staring us right in the face. Perhaps the reason for the attacks was just to make it possible to quickly impose martial law in both the United Kingdom and the United States. Events seem to indicate this. Britain is pushing hard and fast for biometric national IDs that each citizen will have to pay £200 for. Our own national ID legislation waits for the starting guns from Hastert, Rove and Cheney. Watch for that soon.

Yesterday’s attack bore little similarity to 9/11 or Madrid except in terms of time of day and the fact that four or more locations were involved (seven in Spain). There was a specific event tied with today, the opening of the G8 Summit. There was not with any of the other post-9/11 attacks. The lead story today would otherwise have been the fact that Britain and the US had just split on Global Warming and the Kyoto Protocols. Britain is sinking and freezing as the ice caps melt.

The most important facts I gleaned today (all of which are consistent with what the venerable Stan Goff now tells us) were:

These were separate Al Qaeda cells not working under the direction of Al Qaeda (Washington Post, NY Times, London Times). Hence, the terrorists might be anywhere, doing anything, and following anyone. There is no Mr. Big and we need to be afraid of everyone around us.

US markets rose instead of falling after the attacks; just two days after the Fed suddenly moved to repurchase or “repo” a number of financial instruments putting a large dose of liquidity in the system. Analysts attributed to market rise to a momentary reduction in oil prices.

Israel seems to have received advance warning again, which doesn’t justify a conclusion of participation at this time. It does leave many questions to be answered.

We cannot rule out the possibility that these were actual terrorist attacks. Lord knows, the US has made enough enemies in the last four years.

The prime beneficiaries so far are Tony Blair and George W. Bush.
Perhaps the most amazing quote I have seen in the last four years was made in today’s Washington Post confirming Peak Oil in a way I had never expected.

Washington Terrorism expert Thomas Sanderson actually participated in a Post chat session where he took questions from all over the country. How valuable and how rare are such moments.

The Post describes Sanderson thus:

Thomas M. Sanderson , deputy director of the Transnational Threats Initiative at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, was online Thursday, July 7, at 1 p.m. ET to discuss the bombings and the hallmarks of an al Qaeda attack.

Sanderson also codirects the Multilateral Terrorism Intelligence Sharing Project and the Private Sector Advisory Group. His work focuses on intelligence and information sharing; terrorist groups, operations, and crime; and U.S. national security policy.

Sanderson has co-authored studies on religious-based terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and terrorism, and the psychology of extreme violence.

WASHINGTON — The White House and Republican Senate leaders are rumbling toward a defense showdown with their GOP rank and file that could embarrass President Bush and take a rare wartime slap at Pentagon authority.

When the Senate returns this fall and resumes debate on a defense bill, several Republican senators plan to continue trying to tack on amendments that would impose restrictions on the Pentagon’s treatment of terrorism suspects in U.S. custody and delay proposed military base closings. There’s no indication the White House will drop its veto threats against those efforts.

That could make for a confrontation fueled by members of the president’s own party. Such a standoff was averted last month when Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., abruptly pulled the defense bill from the floor after efforts to kill the amendments failed.

“We look to the future,” said a clearly disappointed Sen. John Warner, R-Va., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee that crafted the bill. “We’ll take it up again in September.”

Together, the looming fights over detainees and base closings suggest an increasing reluctance by some GOP lawmakers to give Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld — and by extension Bush — carte blanche during wartime.

As the Iraq war drags on, more Republicans could join Democrats in challenging the president, especially if the conflict’s popularity among U.S. voters continues to fall as U.S. casualties mount.

The efforts also reflect a deepening inability by Frist to keep his Republicans in line, and a burgeoning independence by some members of Bush’s own party that could threaten other parts of the second-term president’s agenda as he battles lame-duck status.

It’s unclear how much support the detainee and base-closing amendments have.

The chief proponents of the detainee proposal — GOP Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Warner — have credentials that boost their credibility. And lots of senators are leery of closing military bases in their home states, especially during wartime.

The defense measure, called an authorization bill, sets Pentagon spending and policy for the coming year but provides no actual dollars. Historically, Congress has used the legislation to force the Pentagon to make operational changes, creating prime conditions for a high-stakes political fight.

“The attitude by the administration and the Pentagon is we don’t need an authorization bill — that they don’t do anything but tie our hands anyway,” said Powell Moore, a Defense Department official during Bush’s first term. “The administration has leverage by saying they’ll just veto it.”

That’s exactly what the administration has threatened to do if the detainee or base-closing amendments are added to the bill. Following through, however, would put the president in the sticky situation of killing a measure that includes military pay raises and other benefits for troops while the country is at war.

Before it comes to that, the White House likely will try pressuring Republican sponsors of the amendments to back off.

The amendments — by McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam, and Graham, an Air Force lawyer for 20 years — would regulate the Pentagon’s interrogation and prosecution of detainees. Warner, a former Navy secretary and chairman of the Armed Services panel, supported the effort.

The trio decided Congress needed a say in the treatment of detainees amid allegations of mistreatment at Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba and the abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. They also sought to derail growing support for a Democratic amendment creating an independent commission to investigate operations at those facilities and others.

Fearing its authority would be usurped, the Pentagon resisted any involvement by Congress. Yet intense lobbying by the White House didn’t persuade McCain, Graham and Warner to drop the effort.

“Nothing has changed,” McCain said.

Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., facing the loss of his state’s Ellsworth Air Force Base, recruited a bipartisan group of lawmakers to support another amendment delaying the Pentagon’s plan to close hundreds of military bases across the country.

Frist and the White House clearly didn’t want to take a chance last month that the amendments would pass. When Frist couldn’t get enough support in his own caucus to derail them, he simply put off further consideration of the defense bill until fall.

He then took up firearms legislation — prompting Democratic accusations that the potential 2008 presidential candidate was pandering to the gun lobby.

The switch allowed Frist and the White House to avoid votes that would have put the spotlight on the president’s defense policies as he faces low approval ratings in polls — and put a damper on the GOP’s celebration of legislative victories it enjoyed before Congress’ recess.

First published in 1869
“...By the time our revolution was won, Masons occupied every dominant position that militarily protected or politically governed this fledgling nation.

And of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence, 53 were claimed by Freemasonry to be Master Masons.

In fact, there is ample evidence to show that we won the Revolution because of complicity among American, French and British Masons…”

• The Iraq “insurgency” is supported and exacerbated by Zionists, using Shiite proxies.
• A civil conflict in Israel over the Gaza withdrawal will create sufficient confusion and backlash against the Sharon gov’t that a countervailing move, including seizure of the Temple Mount, will precipitate a violent reaction among the “Palestinians.”

• An Israeli false flag attack against a Persian Gulf American vessel, potentially coupled with a second 9-11 attack, will be sufficient for the Cheney gang to strike Iran, AS THREATENED.

• A concomitant financial meltdown of the Dollar system is key strokes away.

• The apparatus for implementing Martial Law is in place. FEMA is the administrator, under direction from DHS and Chertoff, a British Imperial Zionist.

• Chaos on the American southern border spills over into the States. There are 500,000 heavily armed Latino gang members spread throughout the United States. The “Russian” Mafiya is under FBI sponsorship. (The murder of Judge Lefkow’s family was a stern warning that she was not to cooperate with Fitzgerald’s investigation)

NWO Communist China’s knives have been sharpened for twenty five years, in the run-up to these events. Russia will not lift a finger to interfere, as she has “been here, done this.”

Europe must stand aside and watch aghast, as it has its own “Muslim” Trojan horses to deal with. This most especially includes Britain.

When Rats run Mice, even the Mice, when cornered, will turn and fight.

Reality has departed the minds of “patriots.”

“And the ‘Maissons’ keep rolling along…”

Thank you Hadashi, for providing us with your further, “farsighted insights”:

The American factional contest may be breaking along traditional Masonic lines, between BE and French lodge memberships. Remember that Kerry is francophone. Zionism is a front for BE interests. If French DCE agents have been aiding CIA “loyalists,” to defeat BE resumption of authority over the whole “North American Union,” then global conflicts may well break along the same “fraternal” fault lines.

Old Europe has indeed been hemmed in by Crown banker Soros’ Open Society “reform movements” in New Europe.

I am going to continue to assume that China remains in the British fold. I read this morning in an article concerning investments in China, a remark by a 21-year China business veteran, that Hong Kong was not so much absorbed by China, as China by Hong Kong.

British banking interests are permitting the Communist-style regimes in Zimbabwe and South Africa to run their course. Their plan must be a wholesale genocide of the region, once the white populations have been utterly dispossessed, a process nearing completion in Zimbabwe, with only 450 white-owned farms remaining of the original 4500.

It would appear that the real purpose of the Iraq war is sparking revolution in the US and in Israel. My hunch, that when the smoke clears, it will be China that benefits at the expense of the rest.

This is why Israel is cozying up to China and has been selling out the US for years. They can see whence their next meal will come, if they are permitted to survive.

None of this gives me any pleasure to report.

Best…

“Senior Army General Is Relieved of Command”:http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,165184,00.html
Tuesday, August 09, 2005

WASHINGTONThe Army said Tuesday it relieved a four-star general of his command after an investigation into unspecified “personal conduct.”

Gen. Kevin P. Byrnes (search) was relieved as commander of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command on Monday by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Schoomaker, according to a brief statement issued by Army headquarters at the Pentagon.

Although disciplinary action against general officers is not uncommon, it is extremely rare for a four-star general to be relieved of command.

He had held the position as commander of Training and Doctrine Command since November 2002. Before that he was director of the Army staff at Army headquarters in the Pentagon.

“The investigation upon which this relief is based is undergoing further review to determine the appropriate final disposition of this matter,” the Army statement said.

The deputy commander of Training and Doctrine Command, Lt. Gen. Anthony R. Jones, has been designated the acting commander, following the action against Byrnes, said Army spokesman Paul Boyce.

The spokesman said it was an Army policy not to release information about specific allegations in an investigation of an Army officer.

In April the Pentagon announced that Lt. Gen. William Wallace had been nominated for a four star and assignment as commander of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (search), to succeed Byrnes. There was no public indication at that time that Byrnes was under investigation.

Whoops Your NoT Supposed to have done that reporting your that your Team had spotted 9/11 hijackeras, General.

Maybe that’s why Bush Fired you.

That sort of information can ruin the President and his crediblity.

Was Lt. Gen. William Wallace connected to “Opertion Able Danger“?

“U.S. reportedly spotted Al Qaeda cell in 2000”:http://www.iht.com/articles/2005/08/09/news/qaeda.php
By Douglas Jehl The New York Times

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2005

WASHINGTON More than a year before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, a U.S. military intelligence unit identified four future hijackers as likely members of a cell that Al Qaeda was operating in the United States, according to a former defense intelligence official and a Republican member of Congress. The unit, a small, highly classified team called Able Danger, prepared a chart in the summer of 2000 that included visa photographs of the four men, including the ringleader, Mohammed Atta. The unit recommended to the military’s Special Operations Command that the information be shared with the FBI, the former official and the Republican congressman, Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania, said Monday.

The recommendation was rejected, and the information was not shared, they said, apparently at least in part because Atta and the others were in the United States on valid entry visas.

Under U.S. law, intelligence agencies may not collect intelligence on individual citizens and permanent residents. That protection does not extend to visa holders, but Weldon and the former official said it may have reinforced a sense of discomfort common before Sept. 11 about sharing intelligence information with a law enforcement agency.

A former spokesman for the Sept. 11 commission, Al Felzenberg, confirmed that members of its staff, including Philip Zelikow, the executive director, were told about the program during an overseas trip in October 2003 that included stops in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But Felzenberg said the briefers did not mention Atta’s name. The report produced by the commission last year does not mention the episode.

Weldon first spoke publicly about the episode in June, in a little-noticed speech on the House floor and in an interview with The Times-Herald in Norristown, Pennsylvania. The matter resurfaced Monday in a report by Government Security News, which is published every two weeks and covers issues related to homeland security.

Speaking by telephone from his home in Pennsylvania, Weldon said he was basing his assertions on similar ones made by at least three other former intelligence officers with direct knowledge of the project, and he said some had first called the episode to his attention shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks.

The account is the first assertion that Atta, an Egyptian who became the lead hijacker in the plot, was identified by any U.S. agency as a potential threat before the Sept. 11 attacks. Among the 19 hijackers, only Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi had been identified as potential threats by the CIA before the summer of 2000, and information about them was not provided to the FBI until the spring of 2001.

Weldon has long been a champion of the kind of data-mining analysis that was the basis for the work done by the Able Danger team.

The former intelligence official spoke on the condition of anonymity, saying that he did not want to jeopardize political support and the possible financing for future data-mining operations by speaking publicly. He said the Able Danger unit had been established by the Special Operations Command in 1999, under a classified directive issued by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to assemble information about Al Qaeda networks around the world.

Weldon is an outspoken figure who is a vice chairman of both the House Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee. He said he had recognized the significance of the episode only recently, when he contacted members of the military intelligence team as part of research for a book.

Weldon said that he had discussed the Able Danger episode with Peter Hoekstra, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and that at least two congressional committees were now looking into the episode.

Colonel Samuel Taylor, a spokesman for the Special Operations Command, said no one there had any knowledge of the Able Danger program, its mission or its findings. Taylor said if the program existed, it was probably a highly classified “special access program” or other highly compartmented program that only a small number of military personnel would have been briefed on.

Philip Shenon and Eric Schmitt contributed reporting.

*“United States Military Forces Begin Coup, Top US General Arrested By Anti-Coup Factions, Russian and Chinese Military Forces Go To High Alert”:http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index796.htm

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

Russian Intelligence Analysts are reporting this evening that an apparent coup is taking place in the United States and that both Russian and Chinese Forces have been ordered to their highest non-nuclear defense status. This troubling news comes on the eve of joint Military exercises previously planned between both Russian and China, and as we can read as reported by the Guardian Unlimited News Service in their article titled “China and Russia flex their muscles as they join forces to play the war game” and which says;

“Next week will see far larger war games involving Chinese and Russian troops in and around the Shandong peninsula in the Yellow sea. Regional observers say such military cooperation is unprecedented and could mark the start of something new.

“The China-Russia exercise is intended to send a message to Taiwan,” said Andrew Yang of the Chinese Council of Advanced Policy Studies in Taipei. “But it’s also a very significant move in terms of the developing relationship between Russia and China and joint efforts to manage regional security. “China considers it’s time to increase strategic cooperation with Russia to balance the US role in the region. Both are interested in demonstrating this is a multipolar rather than a unipolar world,” Dr Yang said.”

One of the Coup Leaders in the United States, General Kevin P. Byrnes, and who is also one of their top Military Generals, has been arrested and taken prisoner by US Counter-Coup Forces, and as we can read as reported by the Newsday News Service in their article titled “Senior general is relieved of duties at commander of key Army training organization” and which says;

“The Army, in a rare disciplinary act against a four-star officer, said Tuesday it relieved Gen. Kevin P. Byrnes of his command after a Pentagon investigation into unspecified “personal conduct.” Byrnes, a native of New York City, was relieved as commander of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command on Monday by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Peter Schoomaker, according to a brief statement issued by Army headquarters at the Pentagon.”

Russian Military Analysts are further reporting that US Military Forces still loyal to General Byrnes and the other Coup Leaders are continuing their preparations and as evidenced by a number of large scale Military movements within the Continental United States Regions. These reports further state that the Coup Leaders efforts are being hampered by the ordering last week of 7 Armor Brigades loyal to the Coup Leaders to depart immediately to the Iraqi War Zone.

(I just saw the headline in a paper saying that the troops in Iraq were to be ‘expanded’ to counter the insurgency.

This insurgency is supported by the Israeli’s BTW people!)

Speculation behind the reasons leading to these Coup Leader efforts centers upon the belief within the American Military Establishment that war with Iran is imminent and all that remains is the ‘triggering event’ forecast by many World Intelligence Organizations to occur this month in the United States. Like the rest of the world knows, should the American Coup Leaders fail in their efforts Total Global War will be the result of any American attack upon Iran, and as exampled by yesterdays article from the Uruknet News Service in their article titled “Why Iran will lead to World War 3” and which says;

“In the short term, however, the plan is fraught with difficulties. At present, there is no wiggle room in the world’s oil supply for massive disruptions and most experts are predicting shortages in the 4th quarter of this year. If the administration’s war on Iran goes forward we will see a shock to the world’s oil supplies and economies that could be catastrophic. That being the case, a report that was leaked last week that Dick Cheney had STRATCOM (Strategic Command) draw up “contingency plans for a tactical nuclear war against Iran”, is probably a bit of brinksmanship intended to dissuade Iran from striking back and escalating the conflict.

It makes no difference. If Iran is attacked they will retaliate; that much is certain. It is always the mistake of extremists to misjudge the behavior of reasonable men; just as it is always the mistake of reasonable men to mistake the behavior of extremists. We should not expect the Bush administration to make a rational choice; that would be a dramatic departure from every preceding decision of consequence. The President of the United States always has the option of unleashing Armageddon if he so chooses. Normally, however, sanity prevails. When the bombs hit the bunkers in Iran; World War 3 will be underway.”

To the outcome of these present events we are not in the knowing, other than to state that should these American Military Coup Leaders fail the result will be Total Global War. To the American President’s position as to which side of the Coup he is supporting there is also much speculation due to his fleeing of the United States to Saudi Arabia, and which we had previously reported on in our August 8th report titled “Bush Flees United States for Saudi Arabia as Israel Accelerates Attack Timetable in Continuing Secret War with America, US Prepares For Martial Law”.

http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index795.htm

Russian FSB also reports that the American Presidents demand to the Saudi King that all monies belonging to the Bush Family through their many Saudi linked companies be returned has been granted, and as we can read as reported by the United Press International News Service in their article titled “Saudis to retrieve $360 billion abroad” and which says, “Saudi Arabia said Sunday it was working to bring back to the kingdom a total of $360 billion invested abroad in the last 18 months.”

The FSB further reports the Saudi payment of these debts to the Bush Family were made in gold reserves and which are now in the process of being returned to the United States by the American President and his family members who accompanied him to Saudi Arabia.

To the American peoples themselves not knowing of how these Coups work themselves out their remains the ominous possibility that we had reported on yesterday that they will be placed under Martial Law, and to which their Military Leaders have already prepared for, and as we can read as reported by the WSWS News Service in their article titled “Pentagon devising scenarios for martial law in US” and which says;

“As for the claims that these military plans are driven by genuine concern over the threat of terrorist attacks, these are belied by the actual conduct of the American ruling elite since 9/11. The Bush administration has done everything possible to suppress any investigation into the circumstances of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon—most likely because its own negligence, possibly deliberate, would be exposed. While the Pentagon claims that its plans are a response to the danger of nuclear, biological or chemical attacks, no serious practical measures have been taken to forestall such attacks or minimize their impact. The Bush administration and Congress have refused even to restrict the movement of rail tank cars loaded with toxic chemicals through the US capital, though even an accidental leak, let alone a terrorist attack, would cause mass casualties.

In relation to bioterrorism, the Defense Science Board determined in a 2000 study that the federal government had only 1 of the 57 drugs, vaccines and diagnostic tools required to deal with such an attack. According to a report in the Washington Post August 7, in the five years since the Pentagon report, only one additional resource has been developed, bringing the total to 2 out of 57. Drug companies have simply refused to conduct the research required to find antidotes to anthrax and other potential toxins, and the Bush administration has done nothing to compel them. As for the danger of nuclear or “dirty-bomb” attacks, the Bush administration and the congressional Republican leadership recently rammed through a measure loosening restrictions on exports of radioactive substances, at the behest of a Canadian-based manufacturer of medical supplies which conducted a well-financed lobbying campaign.

Evidently, the administration and the corporate elite which it represents do not take seriously their own warnings about the imminent threat of terrorist attacks using nuclear, chemical or biological weapons—at least not when it comes to security measures that would impact corporate profits. The anti-terrorism scare has a propaganda purpose: to manipulate the American people and induce the public to accept drastic inroads against democratic rights. As the Pentagon planning suggests, the American working class faces the danger of some form of military-police dictatorship in the United States.”

The devastating suddenness of all of these events will no doubt stun these Americans, who even in these last hours, and before total madness strikes, continue to ignore the very world they live in, and whom their Military Leaders are driving towards the abyss.

“The Pentagon conducts the first of two emergency training exercises called MASCAL which is about a mock plane crash of a Boeing 757 into the Pentagon less than a year before 9/11. “:http://thewebfairy.com/killtown/oddities.html

October 24, 2000 – The Pentagon conducts the first of two emergency training exercises called MASCAL which is about a mock plane crash of a Boeing 757 into the Pentagon less than a year before 9/11. “Contingency planning Pentagon MASCAL exercise simulates scenarios in preparing for emergencies The fire and smoke from the downed passenger aircraft billows from the Pentagon courtyard. Defense Protective Services Police seal the crash sight. Army medics, nurses and doctors scramble to organize aid. An Arlington Fire Department chief dispatches his equipment to the affected areas. On Oct. 24 [2000], there was a mock terrorist incident at the Pentagon Metro stop and a construction accident to name just some of the scenarios that were practiced to better prepare local agencies for real incidents. A major player in the exercise was the Arlington Fire Department. In this particular crash there would have been 341 victims.” – Military District of Washington (11/03/00)

“No one ever imagined that a domestic plane would be used as a weapon to strike The Pentagon; but, fortuitously, because of its proximity to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, someone did imagine the accidental crash of a Boeing 757 airliner into the U.S. military’s headquarters. Last May, as part of their readiness training, the DiLorenzo clinic’s tri-service staff participated in a simulation exercise for this unlikely, but possible, event. They were well-prepared to help bring order to chaos after the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.” – TRICARE, Military Health System

Excerpts from an interview with Major Lorie A. Brown, who was Chief Nurse of DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic.
“Having practiced over the past year our roles and worked our pieces, we knew our lanes of responsibility. I’m the chairperson for the DiLorenzo Action Response Team, DART; that is our MASCAL plan. For the past year, the DART team has been working on developing that plan, really creating a whole new plan. We sat down and met on numerous occasions with the Air Force clinic, civilian EMS, [Emergency Medical Services] Pentagon and DoD hierarchy, DPS and with the other civilian medical agencies. We worked through issues, what would happen in the event of a MASCAL, what each of our roles would be. We participated in several large tabletop exercises with these external bodies, to include FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency] and the others I just mentioned. We even did our own internal exercise where we made up the scenario of a plane crashing into the building. Though you can never be prepared for an event like this, I am sure all our preparations and exercise paid off.” – Office of Medical History, OTSG [HTML]

Excerpts from an interview with Lieutenant Colonel John Felicio, who was Deputy Commander for Administration of the DiLorenzo TRICARE Health Clinic.
“I then went out to the front of the clinic, which is basically where we normally marshal in MASCAL situations.
Meanwhile, I knew because of the two MASCAL exercises we previously did that Colonel Kaminski, our Chief of Ancillary Services, was responsible for being our Medical Liaison at the Emergency Operation Center (EOC) and that he should be en route to that location.
The saving grace to our efforts was the two MASCAL exercises we previously had conducted with the clinic leadership and staff. You know it was kind of eerie. The scenario we had for these MASCALS was very similar to what actually happened. Our scenario for both MASCALS was a plane flying into the Pentagon courtyard.” – Soldiers to the Rescue/Responding in the Pentagon [HTML]

(See also: September 10, 2001 – Pentagon medic Matt Rosenberg is on the phone with the FBI talking about who has command of the MASCAL plane crash plan if a plane hits the Pentagon; 9/11 – Walter Reed Army Medical Center personnel also say that it was “eerie” how an emergency situation they went through just two weeks before the attack helped prepare them for the Pentagon crash)

Kay Griggs Entire interview (8hrs) on Military Underground

Rick Strawcutter interviews Kay Griggs, wife of USMC Lieutenant
Colonel George Griggs (2 hours). Learn more than you used to know
about induction, assassination, and other “leadership” tactics.

“Link”:http://mailman.greennet.org.uk/public/gaias-cafe/2005-June/002627.html

Recently, Kay Griggs, a prominent military colonel’s wife,
set out to right a long history of patent wrongs, which include: – homosexual initation rites in the U.S. military-
-particularly within the Marines; – well-documented instances of both – homosexual and – hetero pedophilia, often as brazen rape, amongst
U.S. military figures and notable senior statesmen,
Henry Kissinger being named loudly by Mrs. Griggs.

Griggs, in her videotaped interviews recently, discovered
her husband’s diary and was suitably horrified at what she read.
She then began asking questions of her friends in the military wives
club, and many of them confessed to the same dirty little secrets.

Her candor on video is both disturbing and compelling: the woman
has come to grips with the fact that this “culture,” as she calls it,
is rife within senior U.S. military, and that the stain of being
called out as a queer is what keeps the men quiet – to the arms – and drugs – running that are a vital function
of.. (the US).. Military.

“Are terrorist cells still in the US?”:http://www.csmonitor.com/2005/0810/p02s01-ussc.html

Arrests of a Maryland paramedic and a possibleterror-camp organizer raise new security concerns.

NEW YORK – New charges that a Maryland paramedic gave “material support” to terrorists raise anew troubling questions for post-9/11 America.
Do extremist cells still exist in the United States? If they do, how much progress is being made to route them out?

Snip-

The fact that neither Shah nor Brent were actively involved in any plans fuels critics’ concern that the FBI is targeting “B” or “C” potential recruits while more dangerous sleeper cells may be lying in wait – those that are more careful about their new friends.

At the same time, experts note that federal authorities are under “great pressure to move in early and operate preventively or preemptively.”

“That means that as opposed to waiting for full-fledged conspiracies, they may be picking up individuals when they are still in the early part of this [recruiting] trajectory. They may have only taken a few steps down the path,” says Mr. Jenkins. “But if you’re going to wait until there are mature terrorist plans, then that runs a risk. And in this post-9/11 environment, authorities are unwilling to take that risk.”

WASHINGTON D. C. GEOMETRY”:http://home.hiwaay.net/~jalison/after2.html

When the site for Washington D.C. was chosen to be the national capital of the United States, it was an undeveloped area. George Washington selected Pierre L’enfant to design the layout of the city. George Washington was the highest ranking member of the Masons at the time and the Masons were ardent students of ancient civilizations such as those of the ancient Egyptians and Greeks. This is evidenced by many of the monuments in and around the city. It has also been suggested that the streets, the broad diagonal avenues, and the blocks and circles left open for monumental structures, incorporated geometric designs of Masonic relevance, as shown in the 1862 map of Washington D.C.

“Driver burned in truck blast “:http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBG2Q4R9CE.html

By DEANNE JOHNSON Journal Staff Writer

COLUMBIANA – The driver of a truck for Jet-O-Chem of Columbiana was flown to the burn unit of an Akron hospital late Tuesday after an explosion occurred while he was refueling his truck.

The man, who has not been identified, was the only one in the Jet-O-Chem lot, according to Columbiana Fire Chief Charlie Flohr. The fire department was called to the scene, which is located in the industrial park, at 9:26 p.m.
Flohr said when the tank exploded the cab of the truck and the front tires received most of the damage. There reportedly was only some damage to the vacuum the truck carries and the storage affiliated with it.

The truck is reportedly used to clean up the leftover byproducts and dust at industrial sites. Jet-O-Chem then disposes of the waste.

“N.M. Sheriff’s Helicopter Shot Down”:http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20050810/ap_on_re_us/helicopter_shot_3

By SUE MAJOR HOLMES, Associated Press Writer Wed Aug 10, 5:41 PM ET

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A sheriff’s department helicopter that crash-landed during a burglary investigation was brought down by a bullet that likely would have hit the pilot had it not struck the control pedal first, authorities said.

Bernalillo County Sheriff Darren White said authorities had no suspects Wednesday but were working with the FBI.

Pilot Chris Holland, 43, suffered shrapnel wounds and was hospitalized Wednesday after undergoing three operations, White said. The deputy with him suffered minor injuries when the helicopter went down early Saturday 15 feet from the back of a house.

“What’s disheartening is Chris just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq, and to think that the helicopter he was flying was shot down here,” White said.

“Oklahoma man held before boarding plane with bomb”:http://reuters.myway.com/article/20050811/2005-08-11T055030Z_01_N11533997_RTRIDST_0_NEWS-SECURITY-OKLAHOMACITY-DC.html

OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) – An Oklahoma man was taken into custody after he tried to carry a bomb on board an airplane on Wednesday in Oklahoma City, an FBI spokesman said.

Charles Alfred Dreyling Jr., 24, was detained on Wednesday morning after a security screener using an X-ray machine saw the device in his luggage as he tried to board a flight to Philadelphia at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma City.

“Although the investigation is in its initial stages we have found no apparent connection to any type of terrorist activity or group,” FBI spokesman Gary Johnson said.

Johnson said the screener saw an “improvised explosive device” in Dreyling’s carry-on luggage.

A woman answering the phone at Dreyling’s home on Wednesday night declined to discuss the matter.

Johnson said Dreyling would be charged in federal court on Thursday with possession of an explosive device at an airport.

*“Truck explodes in Utah”:http://www.mtstandard.com/articles/2005/08/11/newsnationworld_top/newsnationworld_top.txt

George Frey / AP Photo Red Leifson, left, a firefighter from Spanish Fork, Utah, stands at the edge of a crater as a Utah Department of Transportation worker walks through it Wednesday on U.S. Highway 6 in Spanish Fork Canyon near Thistle, Utah. A tractor-trailer carrying 35,500 pounds of explosives overturned and exploded Wednesday, injuring four people and leaving a huge crater estimated to be between 60 feet and 80 feet wide and between 20 feet and 35 feet deep. SALT LAKE CITY — A tractor- trailer carrying 35,500 pounds of explosives overturned and exploded Wednesday, injuring four people and leaving a huge crater in a Utah highway. The truck driver, a passenger in the cab, a motorist and a man on a motorcycle were hospitalized after the truck ‘‘pretty much vaporized,’‘ Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce said.

The explosion left a crater in two-lane U.S. 6 estimated to be between 20 feet and 35 feet deep, Utah Department of Transportation spokesman Tom Hudachko said.

‘‘The entire road is gone, shoulder to shoulder, there’s no asphalt left,’‘ he said.

Witnesses said the truck’s driver appeared to lose control of the vehicle after taking a curve at high speed, Highway Patrol Lt. Doug McCleve said.

It was believed the accident started a fire, which triggered the explosion, Hudachko said.

“US Military Destroys Bomb Directed Against Chicago as Top Pentagon Doctor Killed In Helicopter Shoot-Down and US Secret Service Member Killed as United States Coup Continues”:http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index798.htm

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

Numerous troubling reports from Russian Intelligence Analysts suggest that the Coup attempt currently underway in the United States is spiraling out of control and may soon break into open, and public, hostilities vying for control over the American Government. Particularly troubling is one report detailing an American Air Force F-16 attack upon a bomb laden truck bound for the American City of Chicago but destroyed before it could reach its intended target and as we can read an American ‘sanitized’ version of this as reported by the Associated Press News Service in their article titled “Truck ‘vaporized’ when cargo explodes” and which says;

“A truck carrying 35,500 pounds of explosives crashed and exploded Wednesday, leaving a huge crater in a Utah highway and injuring at least four people. The driver was able to get out and warn other motorists away before the truck exploded. But a passenger in the truck cab and other motorists were rushed to hospitals with injuries, Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Todd Royce said.”

According to Russian Military Analysts this American F-16 attack upon this massive truck bomb included Saudi Arabian F-16’s which arrived yesterday in the United States, and as we can read as reported by the F-16.Net News Service in their article titled “Saudi Arabia joins Red Flag exercise for first time in 25 years” and which says, “For the first time in 25 years, Saudi Arabia joins in the Red Flag exercise at Nellis Air Force Base.”

Russian Intelligence Analysts are speculating that the American President had requested these Saudi Arabian F-16 Fighters during his secret meeting this week with the Saudi Rulers (and which we had previously reported on in our August 8th report titled “Bush Flees United States for Saudi Arabia as Israel Accelerates Attack Timetable in Continuing Secret War with America, US Prepares For Martial Law”) as their remains mistrust between President Bush and certain elements with the American Military Establishment.

This most serious of issues between the American President and the US Military Establishment has been worsened by this weeks news that certain factions within the Pentagon had prior knowledge of the September 11, 2001 New York Massacre, and as we can read as reported by the ISN News Service in their article titled “Pentagon accused of withholding 9/11 intel” and which says;

“Allegations that the US military community had known more than a year in advance that four of the 11 September hijackers, including ringleader Mohammed Atta, were part of a US-based al-Qaida cell has sparked outrage among the victims’ relatives and prompted calls by the 9/11 Commission for a review. Lee Hamilton, a former Democratic congressman from Indiana and vice-chairman of the 9/11 Commission, which investigated the attacks on New York and Washington that killed nearly 3,000 people, told ISN Security Watch that the panel’s members were looking into the allegations. The allegations were made by a Republican lawmaker from Pennsylvania, Curt Weldon, who claimed that the US Department of Defense knew that Atta and the others were part of an al-Qaida cell in the US a year before the 9/11 attacks.”

According to these reports the information on the planned Chicago bombing was ‘extracted’ from a high ranking US Air Force Officer who was in charge of protecting the Western United States Regions from attacks, but has now been put under arrest, and as usual in these events not charged with treasonous crimes but ridiculous ones, and as exampled in this case by the article from the New Zealand Herald News Service in their article titled “US air force officer charged for anti-Bush graffiti” and which says;

“A US Air Force colonel has been charged with painting obscenities on parked cars bearing pro-President Bush bumper stickers, police said. Lt Col Alexis Fecteau, who supervises 41 full-time and part-time reservists at the National Security Space Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado, is suspected of vandalising 12 cars at Denver International Airport over a six-month period, Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. “Lieutenant Colonel Fecteau has been charged with one count of felony mischief and six misdemeanor counts related to the vandalism,” Jackson said.”

Even more troubling are these reports detailing the murders of two Members of the American Presidents Secret Task Force to identify the true perpetrators of the September 11, 2001 Massacre, Dr. Mary E. Hamburgen who was one of the Pentagons top Research Scientists, and former head of the Secret Service protecting President Ronald Reagan, Dick Suekawa.

Dr. Hamburgen was murdered yesterday when the Finnish Helicopter she was riding on was shot down, and as we can read as reported by the Rogers Media News Service in their article titled “Divers to recover bodies of 14 believed killed in Baltic Sea helicopter crash” and which says, “Estonian and Finnish divers on Thursday started the grim task of recovering 14 bodies believed to be trapped inside a submerged helicopter that crashed in the Baltic Sea off the Estonian coast. A family member identified the two Americans on board as Lydia Riis Hamburgen, 86, of Rochester, Minnesota, and her daughter, Mary Elizabeth Hamburgen, 46, of Rolling Hills Estates, California. The two were in Estonia for a wedding, according to Arthur Hamburgen, Lydia’s husband and Mary Elizabeth’s father. The U.S. State Department could not confirm the information.”

FBI Warned Police of Possible Terrorist Attacks in LA, NY, Chicago”:http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBG2Q4R9CE.html

By Jeremiah Marquez Associated Press Writer
Published: Aug 11, 2005

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The FBI has warned police that al-Qaida cells might use fuel trucks as weapons to attack Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, but officials stressed Thursday the warning was based on uncorroborated intelligence.
The warning was distributed Tuesday via a computer network by FBI officials in Los Angeles to law enforcement agencies primarily in California, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.

Though intelligence bulletins usually describe how reliable the information is, this one carried no such statement.

The bulletin warned police that terrorists could use fuel tankers in assaults on the three cities. The warning has not been substantiated, according to two law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

The intelligence originated from FBI headquarters in Washington. It was not immediately clear why the bulletin was sent without details on its reliability.

Eimiller noted that FBI officials often notify police of possible threats, regardless of how accurate the information might be.

“Information at all levels is shared with law enforcement,” she said

“Four Star General Fired For Organizing Coup Against Neo-Cons?”:http://infowars.com/articles/terror/nuclear_terror.htm

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.

“Las Vegas Terror Drill”:http://www.klas-tv.com/global/story.asp?s=3581747&ClientType=Printable

Contact Reporter Edward Lawrence

The 54-hour exercise that started Monday morning will test different parts of the entire emergency response system from first responders to the hospital trauma units. Seventy-eight local, state, and federal agencies are watching to see how well the valley’s plans adapt to the problems thrown at them.

A room in the Clark County Government Center is used to disseminate disaster information. It was been activated Monday as part of the drill.

The Clark County Emergency Command Center opened with reports of mock explosions. It’s the nerve center for first responders. Like the brain of a giant octopus, officials there coordinate every response from fire crews to transporting patients to the trauma centers.

Playing the roll of reporters, volunteers bombard police, fire, and the hospitals with phone calls as the emergency plan unfolds.

Carolyn Levering, Clark County Emergency Management Operations Manager, says, “Very little of this exercise has been scripted. A lot of it has been dependent on player action and the resources that are available as we request them.”

Levering developed the drill. “We are looking to see if agencies are relying on their plans that they have published — whether they are following those plans.” Levering says no one in the field has specific details on what will happen when.

*“NORAD CONDUCTS TERROR DRILL
Military Sharpens Their Skills For A Day They Hope Never Comes”:http://www.krdotv.com/DisplayStory.asp?id=9942*
by Scott Harrison, Jemal Duran

8/11/2005

F-16’S TAKE TO THE SKIES OVER SOUTHERN COLORADO IN HOPES OF PREPARING FOR THE UNSPEAKABLE.

SMALL, PRIVATE PLANES COULD NOW BE THE WEAPONS OF CHOICE BY TERRORISTS.

TODAY, THE MILITARY PRACTICED DEALING WITH SUCH AN ATTACK OVER THE SKIES OF SOUTHERN COLORADO.

THE MILITARY HAS NEVER BEEN FORCED TO SHOOT DOWN A DOMESTIC AIRCRAFT, BUT OVER COLORADO SPRINGS ON THURSDAY, F-16’S PRACTICEDPULLING THE TRIGGER.

NORAD SCRAMBLED THEM FROM BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE NEAR DENVER, IN RESPONSE TO A SUSPICIOUS PLANE.

IN THIS CASE, IT’S FLOWN BY THE CIVIL AIR PATROL AS PART OF THE EXERCISE.

COLONEL JOHN CROMWELL OF WESTERN AIR DEFENSE, THE SCENARIO IS NOT TOO UNCIOMMON IN REAL LIFE, “It may be just an escort and assist someone who’s having an emergency, or it may be someone who’s not responding appropriately.”

IN THURSDAY’S SCENARIO, THE PLANE HAS IGNORED RADIO TRAFFIC, AND HAS NO FLIGHT PLAN, CREATING A CHALLENGE FOR THE MILITARY.

COLONEL CROMWELL: “Private airplanes are normally flying a lot slower. So one of the challenges is being able to get alongside of them long enough to give them a visual signal, or to get their attention.”

IT’S YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A POSSIBLE TERRORIST ATTACK, AND THIS DAY AND AGE, NO THREAT CAN BE IGNORED.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS EXERCISE IS FOR INVOLVED AGENCIES TO IMPROVE THEIR COMMUNICATION AND COORDINATION DURING A FAST DEVELOPING AND STRESSFUL SITUATION LIKE A TERRORIST ATTACK

NORAD CONDUCTS SIMILAR EXERCISES EVERY MONTH OR SO. THEY HAVE RESPONDED TO MORE THAN TWO THOUSAND POTENTIAL THREATS OVER THE U.S. AND CANADA SINCE 9-11.

“Nuclear Terror Drill to Go Live? Let’s Hope Not.”:http://www.physics911.net/nuclearterror.htm
by R. Leland Lehrman, 505.982.3609

August 10, 2005 12:56PM Santa Fe, New Mexico (Mother Media) – On June 29th, the United States Northern Command (NORTHCOM) posted news of a nuclear terrorism drill on its website: “Here’s the scenario…A seafaring vessel transporting a 10-kiloton nuclear warhead makes its way into a port off the coast of Charleston, S.C. Terrorists aboard the ship attempt to smuggle the warhead off the ship to detonate it.” It went on to say that “Sudden Response 05 will take place this August on Fort Monroe and will be carried out as an internal command post exercise. The exercise is intended to train the JTF-CS staff to plan and execute Consequence Management operations in support of Federal Emergency Management Agency Region IV’s response to a nuclear detonation.” As Alex Jones of infowars.com and others have pointed out, terror “drills” are now known to be the favorite “cover story” for New World Order terrorist operations, as evidenced by the eerily synchronous terrorism drills happening on both 9/11 and 7/7.

Recently, former CIA/DIA analyst Philip Giraldi has informed us that “Vice-President Cheney has tasked STRATCOM with “drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11- type terrorist attack on the United States” and that “the plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons.” Investigators and counter-intelligence specialists are concerned that this upcoming August nuclear terror scenario might go live to create the pretext for tactical nuclear war against Iran.

Mother Media contacted NORTHCOM Public Affairs this morning and learned that the Fort Monroe drill will begin in a “couple of days.” We are waiting on the press release which should also be posted at the Joint Strike Force Civilian Support (JSF-CS) website. Fort Monroe internal communications indicate that antiterrorism exercises are slated for August 17th, but there is no mention of a anything nuclear . Concerned parties can contact JTF-CS Public Affairs Officer Michael Eck at 757.788.6259 or Michael Kucharek of Northcom Public Affairs at 719.554.6889 ext. 2. Mother Media hopes that mass awareness of New World Order methods could prevent additional false flag attacks, whether tomorrow, next week or next year.

“War on Terror? Let’s Just Call It Something Else”:http://www.watchingamerica.com/lemonde000041.html

By every objective human and statistical indicator, after four years of the War on Terror there are just as many terrorists committing more attacks than ever. According to this article from France’s Le Monde, with suicide attacks proliferating along with the number of candidates for martyrdom, the outlook is not a hopeful one.
By Eric Leser

August 3, 2005

Original Article (French)

It’s no coincidence. After the series of attacks on London and Egypt, the American administration responded with semantics. The War on Terrorism has just changed names. It is now called the “Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism.” Is it an admission of powerlessness or a shift in strategy, taking into account the political and ideological dimension of the conflict? Both. The military response to the September 11, 2001 attacks gave undeniable results, but did not weaken the supporters of holy war.

The war in Afghanistan, by putting an end to the Taliban regime, forced al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden into hiding. The worldwide manhunt against the terrorist network led to the death or capture of thousands of its members.

Numerous attempts have been made, like those to sink ships in the Strait of Gibraltar, to using ricin as a poison in Great Britain and France, to launching a surface-to-air “stinger” missile against a plane at London’s Heathrow airport, to the crashing of an airplane into the U.S. Consulate in Karachi, to blowing up bombs in front of numerous embassies in Bangkok or to destroying the American Embassies in Beirut and Singapore.

According to Washington, about two thirds of the network’s leaders have been captured or killed following one of the biggest manhunts in history.

Ramzi Bin al-shibh, Abdel Rahim Al-Nashiri, Abu Zubaida, Khaled Mohammed, Riduan Isamuddin, Qaed Senyan Al-Harthi, Mohammed Atef.The most well-known among them are Ramzi Bin al-shibh, caught in September 2002, then Abdel Rahim Al-Nashiri (October 2002), Abu Zubaida (November 2002), Khaled Sheikh Mohammed (March 2003) and Riduan Isamuddin, called Hambali (August 2003).

Others were eliminated, like Qaed Senyan Al-Harthi in Yemen in November 2002 or Mohammed Atef in Afghanistan in December 2001.

Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism specialist at the Rand Corporation, an American think tank, believes that 4,000 suspects have been rendered incapable of causing harm since September 2001. But, he said, “They are replaced as quickly as we kill and capture them. Al-Qaeda is continually regenerating itself. Even if the organization has been diminished, it is capable of recruiting large numbers and pursuing its strategy.”

“Anthrax cases among North Dakota livestock appear to be moving west.”:http://www.grandforks.com/mld/grandforks/news/12362192.htm

Dr. Susan Keller, the state veterinarian, said Thursday that a case of anthrax has been reported in Kidder County livestock. She said farmers and ranchers in Burleigh, Logan, Kidder and McIntosh counties should be on the lookout.

Health officials say anthrax vaccine is available for livestock, but it takes about a week to become effective. They have been urging livestock producers to talk to their veterinarians.

“This new case does not mean the disease is spreading, but that conditions favorable for the disease are more widespread,” Dr. Beth Carlson, the deputy state veterinarian, said in a statement.

“Anthrax has occurred in other North Dakota counties in the past, so the favorable weather conditions may explain the wider distribution this year,” she said.

Anthrax is caused by bacteria spores that can be released to the ground’s surface by flooding. State officials say more than 200 North Dakota animals, including cattle, horses, bison, llamas and farmed deer and elk, have died from the disease so far this year.

The state Agriculture Department said anthrax cases have been confirmed in 12 counties. Southeastern North Dakota has been the hardest hit, with 38 locations affected in Ransom County and 13 locations in Barnes County.

Keller said she has been asked about the disposal of carcasses.

“Burning carcasses and burying both the burned remains and the soil immediately under the carcass is the best means to clean a site,” she said. Farmers and ranchers handling carcasses are advised to wear long sleeves, gloves and a face mask, she said.

“Saudi prince visits Nellis for Red Flag war exercises”:http://www.lasvegassun.com/sunbin/stories/lv-other/2005/aug/10/519185290.html

By Eric Leake
LAS VEGAS SUN
Close ties between the American and Saudi governments were evident Tuesday as a member of the Saudi royal family visited Nellis Air Force Base to view his country’s participation in the Red Flag military exercises.

Prince Khalid bin Sultan, assistant minister of defense and aviation for Saudi Arabia, visited the base where the Royal Saudi Air Force is participating in the war exercises involving forces from several countries. It is the Arab nation’s first participation in Red Flag in 25 years.

“This shows the solid relationship between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Khalid said outside the base’s Air Warfare Center.

He said he was happy to witness the cooperation between the nations first in the Persian Gulf War and as they have continued through the terrorist attacks on New York.

“I must say that the 11th of September was a sad day for both countries,” the prince said. “The purpose of those terrorists was to cut this relationship.”

He said the Saudi air force’s participation in the Red Flag war exercises shows that the relationship between the nations is even stronger than before.

The Saudis brought 150 personnel and six U.S.-made F-15 strike fighter jets to the exercises, which include more than 100 aircraft from the United States, Germany, Great Britain, Denmark, Norway, Singapore, Canada and NATO.

The training started Saturday and continues through Sept. 2. It is the third such training Nellis is hosting this year.

Khalid arrived Tuesday evening to watch the exercises and meet with U.S. military officials. Warplanes sat ready for the exercises on the tarmac behind him.

Bruce Lemkin, deputy under secretary of the Air Force for international affairs, who greeted the prince at the base, said there is great demand for cooperative training.

“We have a marvelous air force, the greatest air force in the world. But one of the lessons of 9/11 is that we can’t do it all ourselves,” Lemkin said.

“If we can train together, if we can learn to fly together, if we have to, we can fight together.”

Khalid arrived while U.S. diplomatic missions in Saudi Arabia remained closed for the second day due to terrorist threats.

Lemkin said the Saudi partnership with the United States is important in fighting terrorism.

“I think it’s a very strong relationship. I think the relationship has changed because the nature of the threat has changed,” he said.

Maj. Gen. Stephen Goldfein, who commands the Air Warfare Center, said much of the training exercises would focus on integrated scenarios including not only flight crews but support personnel.

Khalid added that the interaction among the personnel, Americans meeting Saudis meeting Norwegians, was a valuable part of the exercise.

“I think pilots learn from each other in many ways, not only from the exercises but in knowing each other,” the prince said. “That is the most important thing.”

“Nuclear Training Drill May Have Provided Another Reason For Firing Of Four Star General”:http://www.arcticbeacon.com/articles/article/1518131/31538.htm

Suspicions mount as to real reason why Army General Kevin Byrnes was fired for sexual misconduct only months prior to retirement. Sources close to the Pentagon say Rumsfeld has wanted to get rid of Byrnes for more than three years.
August 15, 2005

By Greg Szymanski

Controversy around a simulated nuclear terrorist attack, called Exercise Sudden Response to be held Aug. 15- 19 at Ft. Monroe, may have provided another reason for the recent firing of General Kevin P. Byrnes, the head of a prestigious Army unit coincidentally taking part in the same nuclear training exercise.

In a highly unusual occurrence, Gen. Byrnes, 55, was relieved of is duties as commander of the prestigious Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) at Fort Monroe, several months short of retirement for what Army brass claims to be sexual misconduct and what insiders say involves an affair with an enlisted female.

Dismissed earlier in the week, Gen. Byrnes has been unavailable for comment.

Under Army regulations, the affair is an actionable offense if found to be an adulterous relationship, but the oddity in the charges against Gen. Byrnes is that he was legally separated from his wife when the alleged sexual misconduct occurred.

Further, it is highly uncommon for a four star officer like Gen. Byrnes to be treated so harshly, especially when he was only several months from full eligibility for Army retirement.

Besides the retirement issue, what makes the Gen. Byrnes firing even more suspicious is that only two other four star officers in the entire military have been fired for misconduct, one being high-ranking Naval officer in 1995 and the other a four star Air Force officer in 1990.

But political observers point to several other more serious reasons why Gen. Byrnes was pushed aside, including to an ongoing feud with Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who has wanted to oust Byrnes for more than three years for bucking the neo=con party line.

Military insiders claim Rumsfeld, who has been trying to weed out officers who don’t toe the party since taking over at the Pentagon, finally let the hammer drop on Gen. Byrnes after backing off several times on the advice of several generals who mediated what looks a short-lived compromise.

Rumsfeld has remained silent on the issue, only saying it wouldn’t be proper to comment on an ongoing military investigation. However, two reliable sources from two different political camps, one conservative and one liberal, claim Gen. Byrnes was stopped in his tracks by Rumsfeld after intelligence reports surfaced that Gen. Byrnes was behind a contingent of at least 40 other high-ranking officers who are trying to thwart the administration’s to engage in a nuclear conflict with Iran.

To back up these claims, recently credible sources inside the Pentagon told the American Conservative Magazine, subsequently verified by Lyndon LaRouche and his political research staff that Vice President Dick Cheney has already instructed Strategic Command (STRATCOM) to prepare for a nuclear attack against Iran in the event of another 9/11-like attack occurs on American soil.

“I think under their time-frame we are weeks away from an attack on our homeland and also an impending nuclear catastrophe,” said Lyndon LaRouche, an outspoken Bush critic and former third party presidential candidate in a telephone conversation from his Vermont political headquarters called Larouche PAC.

Besides the feud with Rumsfeld and Gen. Byrnes’ involvement in a military faction to overthrow the neo-con war agenda, the upcoming nuclear training exercise set for next week at Ft. Monroe also has political observers nervous.

Reports have surfaced that Gen. Byrnes was also fired due to certain irregularities involved in the nuclear training session, which is set to simulate a large nuclear bomb being brought on board a ship into a large U.S. city.

Bush critics also site the danger of these “simulated attacks” since the same type of training sessions occurred just prior to both 9/11 and 7/7, wit simulated jetliner and subway attack training exercises providing an eerie backdrop for the actual attacks that followed.

Regarding the nuclear exercise, Capt. Kevin McNamara, media relations officer, said the training session will be conducted officially by the Joint Task Force Civil Support (JTF-CS) with a press conference being held for credentialed media at Building 261, 363 Fenwick Road. Fort Monroe,VA at 10a.m.

“The exercise will focus on the Department of Defense’s ability to support civil and federal authorities in providing a coordinated response to a nuclear explosion in a major U.S. city. The exercise will be a computer-based field training exercise with very limited troop movements. All unit-level troop movements and response activities will be simulated,” said Capt. McNamara.

When asked about the Gen. Byrnes firing, Capt. McNamara said he wasn’t in a position to comment, deferring all questions to TRADOC media relations, who has failed to offer further details besides it has not been determined whether Gen. Byrnes will be determined or whether criminal charges will be filed.

And to further add fuel growing speculation that a homeland nuclear attack and impending global war are near, ominous reports are coming from the Washington Post, obviously fed the story by the military this week, that the Pentagon has developed its first ever war plans for operations within the United States, plans justifying and making necessary preparations for martial law in case of a homeland terrorist attack.

As reported in the front-page article, sources working at the headquarters of the military’s Northern Command (Northcom), located in Colorado Springs, Colorado gave details to Post reporter Bradley Graham, who was recently given a tour of Northcom headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base.

Observers say the article appears to be a deliberate military leak conducted for the purpose of getting America accustom to hearing the possibility of military rule and martial law.

According to the Post, “the new plans provide for what several senior officers acknowledged is the likelihood that the military will have to take charge in some situations, especially when dealing with mass-casualty attacks that could quickly overwhelm civilian resources.

“The war plans represent a historic shift for the Pentagon, which has been reluctant to become involved in domestic operations and is legally constrained from engaging in law enforcement.”

“Russia and China launch joint military exercise, make USA nervous”:http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/88/354/16003_exercise.html

The fact of the military exercise itself pales in comparison with the political background, against which the event is happening

Russian-Chinese first-ever joint military exercise, Peace Mission 2005, will take place in the north-east of China on August 18-25. All kinds of troops, including naval forces, will be involved in the exercise. Officially, the exercise is supposed to demonstrate joint anti-terrorist measures, although even Russian and Chinese leaders say that the entire event is meant to reveal the nearing tendencies between the two countries. The news about the joint efforts made Washington feel rather nervous, taking into consideration the fact that Russia and China called upon the USA to withdraw its army bases from Central Asia before.

Vladimir Putin signed the decree to redeploy Russian troops on the Shandong Peninsula last week. The Russian command of the exercise arrived in the city of Vladivostok, the Far East of Russia, on Wednesday. Up to ten thousand military men are going to participate in the joint exercises, Deputy Commander of Russian land forces, Vladimir Moltensky, told Russia TV channel. Russia sent a group of vessels of the Pacific Navy, 17 aircraft, pursuit and cargo planes to China as well. Russian commandoes and marines will land in Shandong prior to the start of the offense, which will be coordinated with the Chinese army. Strategic bomber planes will fire cruise missiles at targets on the sea surface at the end of the event.

The fact of the military exercise itself pales in comparison with the political background, against which the event is happening. According to the Chinese ambassador to Russia, Liu Guchang, Chinese authorities view the wargames as the visible confirmation of the bilateral relations with Russia. The chairman of the Russian Chief of General Staff, Yury Baluyevsky, stated that Russia and China were cooperating within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization: “There is a joint anti-terrorist center in the SCO, which estimates the general situation in the part of terrorist and separatist manifestations. I do not exclude that both Russian and Chinese armed forces can be attracted to solve these goals.”

Russia and China signed a declaration at the SCO summit in Astana, Kazakhstan, in the beginning of July. The two countries urged the USA to specify the terms to withdraw its army bases from Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld arrived in Kyrgyzstan shortly after that to announce that the USA was not going to withdraw any bases from the above-mentioned republics at all.

Washington could not help expressing concerns about Russia and China’s joint military efforts. The Washington Post wrote, for example, that Russia and China intend to hold the first-ever joint military exercise to demonstrate their readiness to cooperate in the face of the USA’s military presence in Central Asia. American reporters wrote that China was trying to make the event take place as close to Taiwan as possible, although Russia disagreed.

Defense Minister of Russia, Sergei Ivanov, said that he was quite bewildered about Washington’s concerns regarding the exercise: “We have been conducting military exercises with the USA, other NATO leaders, India and Japan for years already. Why can’t we do the same with China? I do not see any reasons or contraindications for it. We have friendly relations, we are strategic partners, and the adequate military cooperation confirms it. If it raises either interest or concerns with other states, it is their problem,” the minister said. Ivanov added that Russia and China plan to conduct even larger military exercises in 2006.

The joint military endeavor does look like the Russian-Chinese action to oppose the unipolar world indeed. Russia is concerned about the USA’s activity near its borders, while China is preoccupied with the question of Taiwan, which still remains independent strictly because of US troops. The US administration prefers to entirely disregard Russia’s point of view: the current military initiative gives Russia an opportunity to make the USA pay attention to its requirements.

It is noteworthy that Russia and China have similar problems with extremists in Chechnya and in Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region. It therefore gives more reasons to intensify the military cooperation. Nevertheless, the Russian administration is quite concerned about the ongoing expansion of Chinese citizens in Russia’s Far East and Siberia. Despite the anti-American statements released by separate Chinese leaders, the USA still remains commercial partner No.1 for China. The military exercise is most likely meant to play the role of a tactical step, from which Russia and China will probably benefit in the future.

“Emergency Drill Could Cause Delays”:http://www.thewgalchannel.com/news/4862498/detail.html?rss=lan&psp=news

The Carlisle Barracks, Carlisle Regional Medical Center and the Cumberland County Department of Emergency will be taking part in an emergency drill Thursday afternoon.

The drill will begin around 2 p.m. and end by 10 p.m.

It will include simulated explosions and could cause delays around the post and hospital

In a press released issued Tuesday morning, officials say area residents and motorists should not be alarmed if they see emergency response vehicles, hear the simulated explosions or notice chemical decontamination tents being erected near the hospital.

The exercise will focus on a hostage situation and rescue response as well as mass casualty and decontamination-handling capabilities.

The training session will begin about 2 p.m. at Carlisle Barracks. It will end by 10 p.m. The purpose is to coordinate both military and civilian law enforcement with hospital, local fire companies and area medical personnel.

Post Road will be closed from 2:30 p.m. until about 4:30 p.m. Wilson Drive near the hospital will be closed at 6 p.m. and will reopen about 8 p.m.

Motorists traveling around the post and the hospital during these times may experience travel delays. People traveling on Carlisle Barracks should avoid the area adjacent to the Education Center at 609 Butler Road.

Participants and observers include Pennsylvania National Guard’s 3rd Civil Support Team, state police, Carlisle police, North Middleton police, Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, Pennsylvania Civil Air Patrol, the state Department of Health and Human Services and several local ambulance and fire companies.

Source: kcbs
Publication date: 2005-08-19

(KCBS) – An explosion shook office buildings near Post and Kearny streets in downtown San Francisco shortly before ten o’clock Friday morning. San Francisco fire captain Pete Howes told KCBS a man hole cover in front of the Ralph Lauren store at the corner of Post and Kearny appeared to have exploded, although the exact cause of the blast is under investigation.

“We found the front of the Crocker Galleria on that corner had been singed,” Howes said. “We’ve locked the area down.”

One person has been taken to the hospital, said Howes,

“A big fire ball shot out the side of the Polo store,” said James Brown, who saw the explosion. “There were four or five people walking by right when the flames came out and covered them.”

He said most of them were able to get away, although one woman was injured. although the extent of the person’s injuries was not known.

The windows of the Ralph Lauren store on the corner of Kearny and Post store were blown out by the blast.

“I heard this enormous bang,” said Dave Kavedaris, who works downtown. “It shook our building. There’s an enormous amount of debris out into the street.”

Thousands of people were evacuated from office buildings a half block in either direction, said KCBS reporter Tim Ryan at the scene.

The FBI sent explosive technicians to the scene to assist with the investigation, said KCBS reporter Holly Quan at the corner of Kearny and Sutter streets.

“US, South Korea to hold 12-day military drill “:http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/afp/20050818/pl_afp/skoreausmilitarynkorea_050818030804

SEOUL, (AFP) – The US and South Korean militaries announced their troops would hold a 12-day joint drill next week, after North Korea denounced the maneuvers as aimed at pressuring it to give in at nuclear talks.

The exercise, which features computer-simulated war games, will be in South Korea from August 22 to September 2, the US-South Korea Combined Forces Command said in a statement.

“It is designed to evaluate and improve combined and joint coordination, procedures, plans and systems for conducting operations critical to the defense of the peninsula,” the statement said.

It gave no details about the drill. Previous ones have involved an unspecified number of South Korean troops and more than 10,000 US troops.

The United States informed North Korea of the exercise last week, before Thursday’s official announcement, prompting Pyongyang to denounce them as “preparations for preemptive attack” on the communist state.

“Russian nuclear sub test-fires ballistic”:http://www.itar-tass.com/eng/level2.html?NewsID=2324616&PageNum=0

17.08.2005, 12.10

MOSCOW, August 17 (Itar-Tass) – A Russian nuclear submarine in the Barents Sea successfully test-fired an intercontinental ballistic missile at 11:07, Moscow time, on Wednesday, a Defense Ministry official told Itar-Tass.

It was a scheduled launch in accordance with the combat training plan, the official said.

The missile is to hit a designated target at the Kura firing range in Kamchatka.

The Russian Navy’s North Fleet began a large exercise on Wednesday.

Naval officials reported that they had corrected the shortcomings, detected in the course of a command and staff drill last year.

In February 2004, the nuclear submarines Novomoskovsk and Karelia failed to launch three RSM-54 missiles.

President Vladimir Putin and Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov were watching the launching of missiles.

Drill is designed to find flaws in a national plan for dealing with attacks on the homeland”:http://www.timesdispatch.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=RTD/MGArticle/RTD_BasicArticle&c=MGArticle&cid=1031784478946*

TIMES-DISPATCH STAFF WRITER Aug 17, 2005

HAMPTON — Imagine that a terrorist has set off a nuclear bomb on the docks of Charleston, S.C., and the plume of deadly radiation is drifting over the homes of nearly half a million Americans.

At Fort Monroe this week, a joint military task force formed to deal with deadly attacks and accidents is reacting as if the imagined blast in Charleston had actually happened on Sunday.

Maj. Gen. Bruce Davis, an Army National Guard officer who commands the 160-member Joint Task Force Civil Support, took a break from dealing with the simulated emergency yesterday to explain the role his unit plays in homeland security.

Davis’ task force, with members from all military branches as well as the civilian community, was formed in 1999 to coordinate the military forces that would be called in to support civil authorities in the event of a major attack or accident.

The unit’s job is to save lives rather than fight enemies or enforce laws, Davis said.

He said the weeklong exercise is one of several designed to find flaws and gaps in a national plan launched last spring for dealing with attacks on the homeland.

This week’s exercise is unfolding mainly on computers and at Fort Monroe, but it simulates a response that in real life would send task-force members to command centers nearer Charleston and mobilize more than 3,000 units from various military branches to set up shelters, care for the wounded and oversee temporary storage or interment of the dead.

If the Charleston blast had really taken place, there probably would have been many dead.

Ken Lucas, a retired Army colonel serving as a commander in the exercise, said the incident, as imagined, began when authorities tried to arrest a terrorist discovered while unloading an improvised nuclear weapon in the city’s port.

Rather than be arrested, the terrorist set off the bomb, which had the power to kill 10,000 people, wound 30,000 and create a population of 100,000 “worried-well” people who would demand medical attention because they feared they’d been exposed to radiation, officials said.

South Carolina authorities, calculating where winds would spread the bomb’s radioactivity, designated an area with 450,000 residents to be evacuated.

Under the current plan for dealing with homeland disasters, local officials play the lead role in commanding response efforts. In this case, the top official is a local fire chief.

The Joint Task Force Civil Support became involved only after a chain of events that included the governor of South Carolina asking for help and the president calling in the Department of Homeland Security to coordinate the federal response.

Davis and his task-force colleagues said their unit is supported by about 3,500 service members in a revolving group of military units that remain on alert for about six months each with orders to take action on short notice when called.

Officials said the 160 full-time personnel at Fort Monroe are similarly prepared. Each employee keeps one bag packed with emergency-protection gear and another packed with enough clothing and supplies to last for a 30-day deployment.

Besides nuclear attacks, the task force also would be called on in the event of incidents involving chemical, biological or radiological agents or high explosives.

Officials said the task force’s command center at Fort Monroe is regularly placed on alert during such big gatherings as the Democratic and Republican national conventions and the funeral of President Ronald Reagan last year.

This week’s exercise is scheduled to conclude Friday

“Mock Drill”:http://www.wibw.com/news/headlines/1676811.html
Mike Marusarz

Emergency crews in Lyon County got a test Friday in dealing with a mass evacuation caused by a nuclear incident. Emporia State University hosted the exercise.

Wolf Creek power plant let off a radioactive plume forcing nearly 6,000 residents out of their homes, that’s the mock scenario testing Lyon County emergency crews as those residents make their way to the evacuation post at Emporia State.

Radioactive material was hidden on a Wolf Creek employee playing an evacuee living near the plant. Lyon County emergency crews ushered evacuees through sensors separating who’s been contaminated.
Rick Frevert, Lyon County Emergency management coordinator said,
“It allows our people to practice to set up to prepare to receive those people and see where we can improve.”

Evacuees who scanned positive for radioactive material got another scan then it was off to the decontaminating station.

Evacuee Nyla Eccles said,
“One of the good things for the people is we tried to throw some questions at them and act upset.”

Around seventy-five people took part including The Red Cross and Wolf Creek personnel.
“Getting people talking to the right people, that’s what all the training is about,” explained Kevin Moles of Wolf Creek Power Plant.

Back at the drill those affected with radioactive material took decontaminating showers and repeated the process until they were clean.

“We’ll identify those areas that we want to improve or make changes throughout the next few months and we’ll meet and try to make improvements,” said Frevert.

Each person then went through a registration process and a verification they’ve decontaminated as Red Cross offered a place to stay until the danger passed.

“The thought that if you had to go through this and it was real it is nice to know you have somewhere to go that’s safe,” said Eccles.

Officials said they will review Friday’s exercises to determine what changes need to be made to their plan.

“American Coup to Prevent Nuclear Terrorism?”:http://www.sierratimes.com/05/08/13/194_105_124_70_19880.htm
J. Burke

For the followers of the god of Israel, there is a justice being carried out against the government of the United States. Just as Bush and the Arabist State Department are dismembering Israel, and dividing it’s people into a civil war, so to is American land being dismembered and a coup taking place that will lead to civil war.
Leland Lehrman reports in his article, Nuclear Terror Drill to Go Live? Let’s Hope Not, that all army leave had been cancelled from September 7th onwards, and that new “Resisters” within the army were “outraged when they learned that the official story behind 9/11 was impossible.”

The new underground reported to 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.”

In the Washington Post article, War Plans Drafted To Counter Terror Attacks in U.S., the plans to use the next terror attack as justification for martial law was made public.

“The classified plans, developed here at Northern Command headquarters, outline a variety of possible roles for quick-reaction forces estimated at as many as 3,000 ground troops per attack, a number that could easily grow depending on the extent of the damage and the abilities of civilian response teams.”

The rumors surrounding the truck explosion are similar to the Charleston scenario where “A seafaring vessel transporting a 10-kiloton nuclear warhead makes its way into a port off the coast of Charleston, S.C. Terrorists aboard the ship attempt to smuggle the warhead off the ship to detonate it.” On August 10, an explosives filled truck exploded in Utah before reaching its destination. The rumor is that it was attacked by the Air Force.

It was General Kevin P. Byrnes commander of the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) at Fort Monroe who was relieved of his command. The same base where the nuclear terror drill was to occur. The charge? “In a rare move, the Army relieved a four-star general of his command amid allegations that he had an extramarital affair with a civilian.”

“In an effort to stop the Bush administration in its tracks, sources say Byrnes was about to lead a coup against the hawks in the military and executive branch determined to lead America into a global conflict, leading to devastating ramifications for the country, as well as financial and social chaos.”

“Rumors inside the military say that a growing faction of discontented high-ranking officers are attempting internally to try and stop the Bush administration’s imminent plans for war with Iran in an effort to avert global war.”

The advice of one man is fitting. “I have begun stocking water and canned goods. I am ex Air Force, I was on three ring standby most of my enlistment and was in a constant training mode. I know how this works and it doesn’t sound good.”

“Cattle Health: Great Plains Suffers Anthrax Outbreak”:http://www.cattlenetwork.com/content.asp?contentid=7918

An anthrax outbreak this summer has killed hundreds of cattle in the Dakotas and as far south as Texas with additional cases reported in the Rock Lake region of southern Manitoba. Over 300 animals in North Dakota have died and ranchers in South Dakota have lost at least 200 cattle. Two Texas ranches were quarantined in July after anthrax was found in cattle, horses and deer.

The disease forced the cancellation of a team penning event early this week at the Brown County Fair in South Dakota because the North Dakota contractor who provides the cattle is from an area where anthrax has been reported.

North Dakota has quarantined 85 areas, preventing the sales, butchering or transportation of animals. Animal health officials in Bismarck asked livestock producers in south central North Dakota to consult with their veterinarians about immunization.

“We now have a confirmed case of anthrax in southeastern Kidder County,” said Dr. Susan Keller, state veterinarian. “Producers in Burleigh, Kidder, Logan and McIntosh counties should also be on the lookout for signs of the disease and report any possible cases and unexpected deaths to their veterinarian immediately.”

Keller said anthrax vaccine is effective and readily available, but that it takes about a week for immunity to be established.

Dr. Beth Carlson, deputy state veterinarian, said that livestock producers in all counties in the area east of the Missouri River and along Interstate 94, as well as those in counties along the Red River should talk to their veterinarians about whether immunization is warranted.

“The vaccine is effective and readily available,” Keller said. “Animals at risk should be vaccinated as soon as possible to allow them to develop immunity to the disease.”

Keller also said she has received numerous calls about disposal of carcasses.

“Burning carcasses and burying both the burned remains and the soil immediately under the carcass is the best means to clean a site,” she said. “Although there is not a major health concern, we recommend wearing long sleeves, gloves and a face mask when handling carcasses.”

Anthrax outbreak scares Manitoba farmers*
CTV.ca News Staff

Having endured the mad cow crisis, farmers in southwestern Manitoba are now dealing with a disease that kills cattle.

An anthrax outbreak has killed 25 animals (22 cows and three horses) and resulted in nine farms being quarantined for 30 days.

Anthrax is a spore-producing bacterium. The spores have protective coats and can withstand harsh conditions. In fact, they can live in soil for centuries until exceptionally hot, wet conditions expose them to the air. The spores then spread easily and can be inhaled.

The recent outbreak is likely the result of the heavy rain and flooding in the region this spring, says Sandra Stephens of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Anthrax is not considered contagious and can be treated in its early stages.

Still, having recently regained access to the American market, two years after a single Canadian cow was diagnosed with mad cow disease, an anthrax outbreak is the last thing Canadian cattle producers need.

“There’s a heightened fear,” one local farmer and veterinarian told CTV. “Everyone knows [anthrax] is here. Everyone is watching their cattle a little closer.”

Farmers have declined to vaccinate their animals in the past due to the prohibitive cost. But many are paying for vaccinations now, helping to stop the disease from spreading.

Nonetheless, they’re worried about consumer perception of their beef.

“Danger Of Staged Terror Attack at Red Alert Level”:http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/august2005/210805stagedterror.htm

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet | August 21 2005

Recent events and news developments paint a clear picture of an establishment under intense heat and backed into a corner with no perceivable escape route.

At no greater time since 9/11 than during the next few months have we faced such an imminent danger of a staged terror attack being carried out to reign in the seeds of dissent and again rally the sleeping masses behind the elite.

The Globalists are like heroin junkies, every time they carry out an attack the gas mileage obtained from it in terms of getting a free pass from the public on anything they wish to push through gets weaker and weaker.

Those boys have cried wolf so many times they only still hold credibility amongst the most docile of sheep.

Only an attack on the scale of or greater than 9/11, as Bush is holed up safely in his Hollywood studio ranch, will allow them the leeway to fulfil their greedy and dark desires.

Revealing the true nature of their cowardice, we turn our eyes to Crawford Texas and see that one American housewife has the might of the establishment cornered like the man behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz.

But will Cindy’s Sheehan’s efforts ultimately be co-opted?

Sheehan’s simple and genuine message has held steadfast in the face of numerous smear campaigns by the establishment mouthpiece pseudo-press.

We must be very careful to remember that the Drudge Report, Sean Hannity and O’Reilly do not represent a political persuasion that truly encompasses any thinking American. On every single issue they support the government and since many of the government’s actions cannot be called ‘conservative’ in the true sense of the word, the Neo-Con attack machine therefore does not represent real conservatives.

“$500,000 disaster drill lacks volunteers”:http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050822/NEWS0202/508220353/0/SPORTS0602

Only 100 have signed up, and emergency officials need 2,500

Metro officials are spending $500,000 on a massive emergency-preparedness drill next month that requires 2,500 volunteers — but only 100 have signed up.

The Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management has been planning, holding meetings and putting out updates for months now for the 2005 “Emergency Preparedness Challenge,” slated for Sept. 23-25.

OEM Director Richard Byrd said he is confident his office will get the 2,500 people.

“I’ll get concerned two weeks before,” he said. “It’s difficult for people to commit right now.”

The event will include crisis drills, including simulations of a building collapse, terrorist attacks and biohazards at mock crisis sites in west and north Nashville and in Williamson County.

Metro is relying on area schools and colleges to get their students involved, said Heidi Jordan, exercise coordinator for OEM.

“I’m just, honestly, hoping and praying,” she said. “Once the schools and universities get back in session, then things will start picking up pretty quickly.”

Metro contacted the Boy Scouts, Belmont University, the nonprofit Hands on Nashville and some local churches to help with recruitment. Emergency management officials said they’ve been promised about 380 more volunteers who just haven’t officially registered.

“I know there’s an urgency on their part,” said Ron Turpin, director of field services for the Middle Tennessee Council of Boy Scouts of America. “And now I can see why.” He sent out fact sheets about the drill to encourage Scout leaders and members to sign up, and he’s confident the Boy Scout council will secure 100 to 150 volunteers.

Williamson, Wilson and Sumner counties’ police and fire departments and other first responders are scheduled to participate.

The drill is being put on as part of a $1.1 million contract Metro has with a Virginia-based company, Systems Research and Applications Corp., which has technical expertise in planning and executing government emergency drills.

The company is responsible for planning and executing the drill, but its contract doesn’t hold it responsible for finding the volunteers.

About half of the $1.1 million is for the drill; the other half was for a three-day emergency preparedness conference SRA put on earlier this year.

Councilman Buck Dozier, a former Metro fire chief, said he’s “mildly concerned” about the lack of volunteers but thinks the number of registered participants will grow as the event gets more publicity.

“Normally, volunteers wait until the last minute. That could be what’s happening here.”

He suggested that OEM officials expand their search.

“I would encourage them to talk to public and private schools,” said Dozier, who will be volunteering with the Nashville Fire Buffs, an auxiliary fire crew. “I would look at it not as a day off, but they would be learning some valuable lessons of public safety and what that is all about.”

More than 200 people who do plan to be there are students and clinical instructors in nursing and therapy at Belmont, said Debra Wollaber, dean of Belmont’s Gordon Inman College of Health Sciences and Nursing.

The college faculty will schedule that Friday, Sept. 23, as a clinical day and give students credit for participating, she said.

“It’s such a great opportunity for college and high school students to give back to their community,” Wollaber said. •

“Nuclear accident planning plagued by ‘recurring failures’”:http://www.sundayherald.com/51386

By Rob Edwards, Environment Editor

Serious flaws in the emergency arrangements for coping with major nuclear accidents have been exposed by internal government assessments acquired by the Sunday Herald.
Inadequate radiation monitoring, communication breakdowns, poor planning and a chronic shortage of basic facilities have all been revealed by a series of emergency exercises at nuclear sites over the last few years.

If a real nuclear disaster were to occur, critics are worried that fatal mistakes would leave large communities unprotected.

“Thousands of extra people could be put at risk of radioactive contamination and increased risk of cancers as a result of inadequate emergency planning,” said David Stephenson, the Glasgow councillor who chairs the Scottish group of nuclear-free local authorities.

“Emergency plans are produced for a very small area around a nuclear site. If there have been all these problems in carrying out exercises on inadequate plans produced with very limited resources, we are going to be in real trouble should we be called upon to extend these plans.”

Regular assessments of the problems thrown up by nuclear exercises are conducted by the government’s Nuclear Emergency Planning Liaison Group.

Its latest report highlights 48 “areas for improvement”, prompted by more than 20 exercises at nuclear sites over the last five years, including Hunterston, Torness and Dounreay in Scotland.

The exercises, which are required to take place regularly by the government’s nuclear safety inspectors, involve the emergency services, nuclear operators, local authorities and regulatory agencies.

They all act out their roles in responding to imagined explosions, fires and radiation leaks.

“Some agencies struggled to provide timely, clear and concise advice on which to base strategic decisions,” the report says. “There was a failure to spot that some key agencies were missing.”

Some agencies were slow to circulate crucial technical information, some failed to share information internally and some betrayed a “lack of preparedness” in giving advice on chemical risks.

The report says planning assumptions and data were “insufficient” for organising evacuations across council boundaries. The role of government officials was “unclear and at times caused confusion”, it adds.

Efforts to keep the media informed of what was happening “floundered at times because of a lack of press officer representation from key organisations”, the report complains. “This results in difficulties in drafting and agreeing reassuring public messages.”

One exercise at Bradwell in Essex uncovered shortages of basic equipment. “Status board not kept up to date,” the report records.

“Lack of phone/network and power points. One telephone per agency inadequate. Poorly located fax machine with no paper provided. No printers.”

The report, which was completed last December, also details delays and deficiencies in radiation monitoring. Two government agencies, the National Radiological Protection Board and the Food St andards Agency, were said to be “frustrated” by the lack of radiation readings.

The problem was particularly acute at an exercise codenamed “Yeti” at Torness nuclear power station in East Lothian on October 30, 2003. “The availability of early radiological monitoring information to a standard acceptable to the public was not present,” concludes a report by British Energy, the company that runs the site.

“The scientific response of measuring risk only in those areas where it is known or believed to exist is completely inadequate.”

The revelations were described yesterday as “an astonishing catalogue of fundamental and recurring failures” by Bridget Woodman, a nuclear research fellow at the University of Warwick.

“After practising for years to cope with a nuclear accident, the agencies still can’t get even the basics right.

“If there was a serious accident, people’s lives will depend on things going like clockwork,” she said.

“How can the industry be talking about building new nuclear power stations when it’s clear that they can’t cope with the potential consequences of operating the ones they have now?”

Last week, the Scottish Executive released hundreds of internal documents concerning nuclear emergency exercises since the early 1990s. They were provided to the Sunday Herald in response to a request under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act in May.

These documents include a number of e-mails between Scottish Executive officials last year, disclosing unease about the decision to hold a major exercise at Dounreay last September. Northern Constabulary and the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) both felt put upon because they had recently hosted other exercises, including Delta 36 in August 2003 (see panel).

“All this points to poor planning of these things,” commented one Executive official. In another e-mail, an official suggests that government departments are “not very practised” at co-ordinating emergency plans, and haven’t considered “how scenarios would evolve in real life and what the political consequences would be”.

The Executive said that the decision to hold the exercise at Dounreay in September last year had been made by the Nuclear Emergency Arrangements Forum.

Northern Constabulary had requested additional funding to cover their costs and this had been met by the UKAEA.

“Emergency exercises at nuclear facilities are a valuable tool in preparing all parties concerned for the possibility of a major incident,” said an Executive spokesman.

“They are an opportunity to flag up problems, issues of concern and the lessons that can be learned from them. Issues continually arise during exercise programmes, but that is precisely the reason why exercises need to be held on a regular basis.”

Colin Punler, the UKAEA spokesman at Dounreay, said: “Exercises would be pointless if we didn’t learn from them.”

Extracts from official logs:

9.30am: Automatic fire alarms activated in the Prototype Fast Reactor (PFR) at Dounreay.

9.34: A loud crash reported, and screens have gone haywire. All personnel are evacuating the building. Smoke coming from the south side.

9.38: Fire brigade called. Radiation suspected.

9.40: Highland Council asks whether it is safe for workmen to continue working on the nearby A836.

9.45: Reported that a party, including environment minister, Ross Finnie, and his five-months pregnant secretary were in PFR this morning.

9.45: Dounreay visitor centre asks whether it should hold or release a bus party of 47 Japanese.

9.48: A Peruvian TV crew has turned up at the front gate.

9.50: A farmer asks if it is safe to take sheep to market.

9.55: Severe pressure to locate Finnie and his party.

9.58: Finnie’s party reported to have seen the accident but to have got out. They are suffering from smoke inhalation, are badly shaken and may have been contaminated.

10.01: Reported that an overhead crane being used to transport a flask had fallen on to the top of the reactor damaging sodium pipe work. This resulted in a serious liquid metal fire. Part of the crane has punctured the reactor hall south wall, breaching containment. Radiation has been detected. Six people are reported missing.

10.05: The husband of Finnie’s secretary phones and asks if she is OK.

10.15: The police say that an aeroplane has just left Inverness with a film crew on board intending to fly over Dounreay.

10.16: The first casualty is recovered. Two firefighters also contaminated.

10.30: Police report that a foreign TV crew has left Scrabster harbour Caithness, in a boat heading for Dounreay.

10.45: A hydro company manager reports that three workers near Dounreay

have seen smoke and are starting to feel unwell. “What the f*** is happening?” he says. “Is it safe to get my men off the hill?”

10.59: More firefighters are contaminated and the fire is spreading.

11.25: Fire brigade requires extra protection suits as they are being removed during decontamination of firefighters.

11.30: Journalist phones to ask if it is safe to eat strawberries from Halkirk.

14.00: Food Standards Agency Scotland issues a warning that fresh food, fish, farm crops and livestock may have become contaminated. Local people are advised not to eat food that has been left outside. Farmers are told not to harvest crops.

14.44: Fire contained, though it will take another 24 hours to

extinguish; 32 firefighters have been contaminated.

Time unspecified: A minister gives an emergency statement to parliament. A plume of contamination is heading towards Halkirk and Wick, he says. People within five kilometres of Dounreay have been advised to shelter, and evacuation plans are being developed should this prove necessary. Drinking water supplies from Loch Calder suspended. There is no reason for wider public concern, he says.

“Army, FBI lead ‘Orbit Comet’ anti-terrorism test”:http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/news/2005/08/mil-050824-arnews01.htm
By Lt. Col. Susan C. Danielsen and Spc.Jonathan J. Springer
August 24, 2005

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (Army News Service, Aug. 24, 2005) – More than 21 local, state, federal and military agencies last week took part in “Orbit Comet,” the largest full-scale anti-terrorism exercise ever in North Carolina.

The exercise began Aug. 15 with a scenario a few minutes before 8 a.m.: on a Fort Bragg range road, two MPs escorting two buses of VIPs were fatally injured when the convoy was hit by improvised explosive devices. Several congressmen were taken hostage and scurried to an unknown location. Others remained captive on one of the buses which became disabled by the assault.

Developing creative, realistic scenarios was essential if the first responders and leaders were to get a learning experience out of the week-long event, said

Greg Jackson, deputy director of Fort Bragg’s Directorate of Emergency

Services. He said planning for the exercise started back in November.

Looking for ways to test capabilities, processes and existing relationships with other homeland defense organizations, Fort Bragg reached out for assistance – and got it in droves.

The Fayetteville Police Department and Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office conducted a raid on a mock drug house. Information gathered from the operation formed the foundation

of the intelligence assessment and an FBI situation report that was disseminated to law enforcement and security organizations.

In addition to analyzing intelligence, the FBI dedicated its SWAT team and senior leadership to the regional event.

“This exercise is really a representation of what has been going on for several years here,” said Kevin Kendrick, special agent in charge of the FBI in North Carolina.

“This is a culmination of a lot of planning and we are all very proud to be able to take part in this exercise.”

After the swift and successful rescue of the busload of congressional delegates Monday morning, Fort Bragg’s SRT and the FBI’s SWAT surrounded a terrorist hideout in houses on post. Other political figures were held hostage there with the terrorists threatening to detonate a ‘dirty bomb’ if their demands were not met.

When negotiations failed between law enforcement officials and the terrorists, Tuesday morning both tactical teams prepared to assault the houses.

“Alternate breech! Alternate breech!” ordered the FBI SWAT team leader over the radio when heavily barricaded front doors initially refused to yield to the forceful throws of the battering rams. Just then, the doors of both houses caved to the persistent rams of the entry teams, creating passageways for two streams of heavily armed men intent on finding and saving the hostages.

Kendrick drove home the fact that exercises like Orbit Comet help hone the necessary tactical skills and techniques needed to respond to a terrorist attack.

“That’s what it’s all about at the end of the day. Prevention of terrorism is our number one priority in the FBI.” said Kendrick.

Neighboring Fort Bragg is Pope Air Force Base, host to the multi-agency Joint Operations Center. The FBI also established a JOC in the eastern region of the state.

At Pope, the JOC was a bevy of activity – not only because of the surge of senior officials from multiple agencies and the hustle needed to manage the complex scenario – but because the mock terrorists had gummed up the installation’s perimeter: one of the training devices had malfunctioned, causing the base to divert traffic and send in the Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit to render the device safe.

The terrorists detonated two bombs that day – the one on Pope Air Force Base and another on Fort Bragg. “Engine 11, Engine 31, Engine 51, Rescue 1, HAZMAT, Chief 3, respond to Knox Street vicinity Materiel Maintenance Division for a report of explosion,” barked the Fort Bragg Fire Department’s dispatch. Soon, fire departments from Pope Air Force Base and Fayetteville would arrive on scene to render mutual aid. This was the ‘dirty bomb’ the terrorists had warned of. The fallout of the chemical agent created a mass casualty exercise, testing the capabilities of Womack Army Medical Center.

WAMC’s effort focused on the Hospital Emergency

Incident Command System, said Marsha Lunt, security officer for WAMC.

“…This system allows interoperability with our civilian counter parts during emergencies, and enables personnel and resources to be brought in to respond, more quickly,” Lunt said.

Col. John G. Chambliss, commander of the 16th Military Police Brigade (Airborne), and director of the Directorate of Emergency Services, said the goal with Orbit Comet is to train to deter or minimize any type of terrorist activity that could possibly take place on Fort Bragg or the surrounding communities.

“This exercise was not only beneficial to Fort Bragg and the local community, but also to the state and federal agencies that participated. It’s important because we had all the key players involved from the local, state and federal agencies and we mutually were able to fine tune each of our emergency response plans which realistically can only be accomplished by having exercises such as Orbit Comet,” said Chambliss.

At the Military Ocean Terminal, Sunny Point on Thursday morning, security officials and members of the fire department responded to a chlorine gas leak caused by a train accident occurring right outside of the facility. Three security officers on the gate and a responding patrol were overtaken by the chemical fumes.

“We need a MEDEVAC!” ordered the assistant fire chief who was the incident commander. After decontamination by the MOTSU HAZMAT team, the victims were transported to the local hospital. Above the incident scene, aircraft from the Civil Air Patrol provided security and monitored the vapor cloud – while the nearly 300 employees of the port sheltered in place in an attempt to avoid being affected by the deadly fumes. By afternoon, the chemical no longer posed a threat, and all employees were accounted for and evacuated.

“This was the first time we’ve involved every employee on the installation in a force protection exercise,” said Ron Waidlich, director of Emergency Services for MOTSU. “It really raised their awareness and improved our emergency response posture.”

“Another benefit of the exercise was that it validated our mutual support agreements,” Waidlich said.

HAZMAT teams from the surrounding towns of South Port and Boiling Spring Lakes responded to the mock incident, and assisted with the mitigating the effects of the “leak” “We also got great support from approximately 25 teens from the Civil Air Patrol,” continued Waidlich. “They were right out there with us, helping with the evacuation.”

Later that night, a terrorist group breached Sunny Point’s perimeter; but it was quickly discovered by security officers. With assistance from law enforcement officers from the Brunswick County Sheriffs Department and Soldiers from the Army National Guard who served as an eye in the sky with their OH-58, Sunny Point security forces foiled the terrorists from meeting their objective.

One hundred miles up the coast, in Morehead City, 10,000 gallons of asphalt flux spilled from the Trumbull Terminal at the state port in an exercise attempt to hamper the outload of U.S. Marines from nearby Camp Lejeune. Unknown to the Marines, two camper trucks full of high explosives had decimated a public ferryboat in Pamlico Sound and pneumonic plague was detected in Pitt Count, quickly followed by nine other coastal counties reporting plague.

“The Marines really were outloading that day,” said Andrew H. Albright, Readiness, Intelligence and Plans Officer for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security / Coast Guard. He said a unified command was established between the N.C. State Port Authority, U.S. Navy, Military Sealift Command, North Carolina Department of Transportation and DHS/USCG to respond to near-simultaneous events.

The forecast of an impending storm prevented much of the full-scale live play, but “this really worked out for the better,” Albright said. “We had the DHS/USCG vice commandant, senior representatives from the Navy, and the DHS Homeland Security Operations Center on video-teleconference. We had plenty of time to focus on our procedures. From this, we reviewed the National Response Options Matrix, and made some recommendations which may influence the NRP.”

Other participating agencies included: Federal Emergency Management Agency, North Carolina’s State Bureau of Investigation, the Fayetteville Police and Fire Departments, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department.

“When planning these exercises, we (the military) have to work within the capabilities of our civilian counterparts in order to earn their trust,” said Albright. “I think we did that.”

Most of the Orbit Comet planning team will take a couple weeks off and catch their breath, but then they said it’s back to the drawing board to plan for the next anti-terrorism exercise which will take place in the spring.

*“Homeland Defense Exercise Wraps Up in Alaska”:http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Aug2005/20050823_2507.html *
By Capt. Amy Hansen, USAF
Special to American Forces Press Service

In-Depth Coverage FORT RICHARDSON, Alaska, Aug. 23, 2005 – A massive homeland defense exercise in Alaska wrapped up Aug. 19 after five days of simulated natural disasters and terrorist events, including earthquakes, aircraft crashes and anthrax attacks in 21 communities statewide.

Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 05 allowed local, state and federal agencies to respond effectively to a wide range of emergencies.

Nearly 5,000 people from the local, state and federal government — the Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, Department of Defense, Alaska Army National Guard and Air National Guard, Federal Emergency Management Agency Region 10, Transportation Security Administration, Federal Aviation Administration and the FBI — took part in the exercise.

One of the last scenarios of the exercise, a simulated DC-10 airplane crash at Anchorage’s Kincaid Park Aug. 18, was a sort of grand finale. More than 100 “victims,” bedecked in fake blood and simulating injuries, presented a triage challenge to more than 50 emergency responders.

“People can walk away from this exercise, after seeing what happened at that grand finale event, with a lot of confidence that years of preparation, practice and tabletop exercises have resulted in a terrific team that is ready to respond to these kinds of disasters,” said Army Maj. Gen. Charles Jacoby, deputy commander of Joint Task Force Alaska.

“It’s been terrific to reinforce our relationships with state and local officials,” Jacoby said. “It’s been a tremendous learning event for the staff and their processes.”

JTF-AK coordinates the land and air defense of Alaska, as well defense support to civil authorities when an emergency exceeds the response capabilities of local, state and other federal agencies, like in this exercise. It is made up of representatives from the Air Force, Army and Navy, and reports to U.S. Northern Command.

The joint task force’s exercise director, Air Force Col. Steven Hatter, agreed that Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 05 was an interagency success.

“Before the exercise, we went through a deliberative planning process with more than 30 federal, state and local agencies to develop training objectives, and then we built the exercise scenario based on those objectives,” he said. “We are very pleased we were able to meet those objectives and were able to communicate, integrate and synchronize activities across the state.”

“I think overall, it went well,” agreed David Kang, emergency program manager for training and exercises for the state government. “We met all our objectives, and we also generated areas for improvement. In those aspects, it was a tremendous success.”

In an exercise of this size, a team of people, commonly referred to as the white team, plans a detailed schedule of exercise scenarios that are designed to challenge participants, who are known as blue players. A major component of the white team for Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 05 was the Joint Exercise Control Group, which managed all the exercise inputs, provided simulated terrorists, produced simulated media reports, and otherwise challenged the blue team to react to situations ranging from damaged local infrastructure to major security threats.

“Whenever you do an exercise of this scale and magnitude, like a terrorist attack overlaid on a natural disaster, you’re practicing for a worst-case scenario,” Hatter said. “But it’s like going to the gym — if you don’t train regularly, you’ll slide backwards.”

“I’ve done several (U.S. Northern Command) exercises, and due to (the joint task force’s) thorough and detailed planning, this one went extremely well,” said Marine Col. Robert Hedelund, Joint Exercise Control Group director. “Team Alaska hit a home run with this one.”

One possible reason for the exercise’s success was an innovative committee that brought top-level agency leaders together to tackle crisis management.

“The Antiterrorism Advisory Council Alaska brings together federal, state and local officials to share information, coordinate activities, and look for ways to work together, both day to day and in an emergency situation,” Hatter said. “ATACA is all about the power of habitual relationships. ATACA played extremely successfully in Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 05 and is being looked at as a best practice for export to other U.S. states and territories.”

Another success in Alaska Shield/Northern Edge 05, according to a state representative, was an innovative interagency communications tool called the “Common Operating Picture.” The COP is an Internet-based tool that allows users to click on a map for details in an emergency situation.

“One of the big things seen in this exercise was increased situational awareness due to the COP,” Kang said. “That was a tremendous success. The state is looking into using the COP in the future.”

N Korea threatens to ‘wipe out’ US forces

Seoul • North Korea yesterday threatened to “mercilessly wipe out” US forces in case of war during a national meeting to mark leader Kim Jong-Il’s 42 years’ work at the ruling party.

The threat, in a ruling party report carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), came as North Korea was reportedly preparing to test-fire a long-range missile despite strong protests from the United States and its allies.

Choe Thae Bok, a ranking Workers’ Party official, said Washington was “hell-bent on provocations of war of aggression” in the report to mark the 42nd anniversary of Kim’s start at the party, KCNA said.

“If the enemies ignite a war eventually, the Korean army and people will mercilessly wipe out the aggressors and give vent to the deep-rooted grudge of the nation,” Choe was quoted as telling the meeting.

North Koreans are customarily advised to watch the televised event, according to Seoul officials.

Japanese and South Korean media said North Korea was planning a missile test for this week.

North Korean technicians have already reportedly assembled a multi-stage Taepodong-2, with a range of 3,500 km to 6,000 km.

CBS News reported that South Korea’s ambassador to the US, Lee Tae-sik, had told Korean correspondents in Washington that Pyongyang may have fuelled a missile already. “Satellite photos confirmed scores of fuel tanks near the missile launch pad,” he said. “We are not sure whether they had already completed fuelling or located (the tanks) there to fuel it.”

South Korea, which seeks to reconcile with N Korea after decades of hostility since the 1950-1953 Korean War, has urged Pyongyang to abandon any plans to test-fire the missile.

But South Korea maintained its usual level of military alert yesterday despite the news reports about an imminent missile test launch. “The military is on the same level of alert as usual. There has been no upgrade in the military alert yet,” a defence ministry spokesman said.

Japan warned North Korea yesterday of “a harsh response” from Tokyo and Washington if it went ahead with the launch of a long-range missile.

Amid reports that a launch was imminent, a Japanese official quoted by the Sankei Shimbun daily said North Korea’s leadership had told people to raise the flag at 0500 GMT and monitor television for a “message to the people”.

The time came and went without any reports of a missile test.

South Korea’s Yonhap news agency said North Korea’s reported instruction might not be linked to the missile launch, saying it could be preparations for another national event. “On June 18 last year, North Korea also told its people to watch an evening television report,” the official told Yonhap.

Japan’s Jiji Press news agency reported that Japanese Defence Agency officials had concluded that a launch was not imminent, but that monitoring would continue.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Aso said in a television interview his country would seek an immediate meeting of the UN Security Council if Pyongyang went ahead with a test.

He voiced concern about the possibility of a missile landing on Japan, but toned down a remark made in an earlier interview that Japan would automatically regard this as an attack. “We will not right away view it as a military act,” he said.

He also stopped short of saying what Japan and the US would do in the event of a launch. But he said: “The responses will be rather harsh”.

North Korea shocked the world in 1998 by firing a missile without any warning over Japan into the Pacific Ocean.

North Korea last year declared it had nuclear weapons. Pyongyang has boycotted six-way talks aimed at ending its nuclear weapons programme since November, after the US imposed sanctions on the North for alleged counterfeiting and money-laundering.

Daley: Loop evacuation drill to be ‘spontaneous’

August 28, 2006

BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter

Chicago has conducted countless tabletop drills since Sept. 11, 2001 to simulate what would happen if the city was hit with a terrorist attack or natural disaster.

Next week, the simulation will come “off the tabletop and out into the street.”

Emergency preparedness officials will stage a “voluntary evacuation” of fewer than a dozen buildings in a section of the Loop that Chief Emergency Officer Cortez Trotter described as “two square blocks, maybe more.” Sources said the Sears Tower will not be included in the drill, tentatively scheduled for next Thursday.

Building employees who agree to participate — and give up “several hours” of their workday — will be directed to designate “transport centers,” Trotter said. From there, they will presumably be taken by bus to central gathering places like McCormick Place, where they will be given food, water, washclothes, toothbrushes, blankets and other essentials.

McCormick Place got its first evacuation test during a South Side power outage earlier this month.

The goal of the drill is to test in a real-life situation how prepared Chicago is for a mass evacuation nearly five years to the day after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

“When you do tabletop exercises, that’s one thing. But it becomes real life to people when they can actually see it. Once they see these exercises unfolding and they can understand that, ‘Hey, that could be me tomorrow, the day after tomorrow or next year,’ they start to pay closer attention to it,” Trotter told a news conference at the city’s 911 emergency center.

“The exercise not only demonstrates what we would have people do once they reach ground level. It takes it to the next step. And that is, once you’re evacuated, you can anticipate going to assembly transport centers. You can anticipate being told to go to different locations. Once that takes place, then the second phase of the excerise that’ll be done — later on in the year, probably — picks it up at that point: the stockpiling. They’ll be made aware of that so that, if you are told to evacuate, we are starting to stockpile things that people need.”

Trotter said the evacuation will not cause a “considerable disruption” in the central business district. But it will cover an area “large enough so that we can get a good sampling” of where Chicago stands.

“Yes, we have a plan. Yes, we understand the plan. Yes, we believe that it will work well. We’re going to test it and make sure that it does and, if it needs to be tweaked, then we’ll do it…We had a recent power outage on the South Side. As a result of the evacuation that took place there, we’ve learned some things. We’ve tweaked the plan. Now, we’re bringing it downtown. Once we do it here, we’re going back to the neighborhoods,” he said.

Although building owners and managers have been notified, Mayor Daley said it’s pivotal not to reveal too many details about the drill in advance.

“You can’t say, ‘Everybody has to do this. Now, we’ll give everybody an alert. Here’s what you have to do.’ That’s not an evacuation plan. This has to be spontaneous….I’m not going to have people there two days before getting ready for an evacuation plan. You don’t do that. There has to be some chaos. People get frightened. They get upset,” he said.

But what about pedestrians and other innocent bystanders who have no idea that it’s only a drill? Isn’t there at least some danger of a War of the Worlds scenario, where passersby believe that it’s all for real and start panicking?

“Let’s hope not. Let’s hope that there’s enough interest and enough chaos to let us evaluate what would happen. But I doubt we would get into a War of the Worlds [panic] over just a few people,” Trotter said.

The Loop evacuation drill is just one of several activities planned for National Preparedness Month. City Hall is also planning public service announcements and presentations at schools and senior citizen centers to spread the word about disaster preparedness and the need to make advance plans to protect children, the elderly and pets.

Daley was joined at Monday’s news conference by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). Durbin has inserted proposed language into the Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006 that would provide grants to cities and states to develop evacuation plans, conduct drills and stockpile materials to supply emergency shelters.

The bill, now before a House-Senate conference committee, would not allow Chicago to apply for reimbursement for the Loop evacuation drill after the fact. But it would be available to finance future drills, the senator said.

“You know what happens to our kids when they go to school? They have fire drills. They tell kids what you have to do to get out of the building safely — and we’re glad they do this. Well, we need to have the same fire drill mentality. We have to know the right escape routes, the right exits, who to watch for, whom we can trust, where we can go,” Durbin said.

Detroit on guard for huge disaster

Dave Battagello, Windsor Star Published: Thursday, August 24, 2006 DETROIT – Up to 1,000 volunteers will take part next month in the most in-depth disaster simulation ever held in a major American city, U.S. Homeland Security and Detroit officials said Wednesday.

Homeland Security and city emergency response leaders want to prove they’re ready, especially with the two busiest border crossings between Canada and the U.S. — the Ambassador Bridge and Windsor-Detroit tunnel — among potential terrorist targets.

They will stage a large-scale two-day emergency exercise in southwest Detroit near the Ambassador Bridge Sept 8 and Sept. 9, when up to 1,000 volunteers will play the part of victims of a dirty bomb attack.

The exercise is crucial, said Brenda Ice, director of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s Detroit office. “Whatever happens must start at the local level. The feds can’t get there — you’ve seen that,” said Ice, referring to the aftermath of the World Trade Center terrorist attack in New York and hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Every local, state and federal response agency on the U.S. side will take part. The Red Cross, Salvation Army and trained citizen response teams will also be involved.

During the exercise, “victims” will be evacuated from southwest Detroit to another area of the city and sheltered overnight, while others are to receive simulated treatment in medical tents that include full electricity and air-conditioning.

“You are never 100 per cent ready for everything,” said Matt Allen, spokesman for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.

FEWER LOOSE ENDS

“But the more we do today, the less likely there will be loose ends later.

“The purpose of the exercise is to give us a dry run so it can be evaluated.

“It is the first such in the country.”

Details of the exercise were provided Wednesday during a rare invitation inside Homeland Security’s and the city’s high-tech emergency command centre.

Located in a nondescript, unmarked warehouse in a downtrodden area of west Detroit, the bunker-like centre is the hub for any area emergency where political, security and emergency response leaders are to gather and dish out commands.

The control room contains a dozen large plasma screens which can produce views of key Detroit sites including Comerica Park, Ford Field, Hart Plaza, major freeways, the tunnel and bridge.

Although Windsor authorities will not be involved in the dirty bomb practice test, Ice said training exercises with Canadian emergency responders all the way to Toronto have increasingly occurred — including a recent joint HAZMAT exercise with Windsor.

SUCCESSFUL TEST

That test saw Windsor’s response team successfully travel through the tunnel and set up people and equipment at a Detroit location within 30 minutes, she said.

Another Detroit-Windsor exercise involving the tunnel will also take place sometime near the end of September.

American Appears in New al-Qaida Tape

By LEE KEATH

(AP) A man identified as Adam Yehiye Gadahn, an American who the FBI believes attended al-Qaida training…

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) – An American thought to be an al-Qaida activist appeared in a videotape with the terror group’s deputy leader Saturday and called on his countrymen to convert to Islam and for U.S. soldiers to switch sides in the Iraq and Afghan wars.

The 48-minute video, posted on an Islamic militant Web site, had footage of al-Qaida’s No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, and of Adam Yehiye Gadahn, a 28-year-old American who the FBI believes attended al-Qaida training camps in Pakistan and served as an al-Qaida translator.

It was the second time Gadahn appeared in the same video with al-Zawahri. In a July 7 video marking the one-year anniversary of the terror attack on London commuters, Gadahn appeared briefly, saying no Muslim should “shed tears” for Westerners killed by al-Qaida attacks.

But Saturday’s video – and the length of Gadahn’s speech – suggested al-Qaida has found in him someone it believes can communicate effectively with Americans.

(AP) A man identified as Adam Yehiye Gadahn, an American who the FBI believes attended al-Qaida training… Full Image Appearing days before the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the U.S., Gadahn spoke for nearly the entire video, wearing a white robe and a white turban, sitting in front of a desk with a computer and Islamic religious books in a room with a white wall.

The video included no direct threats of terror attacks.

Gadahn delivered a lecture on Islam and the “errors” in Christianity and Judaism. He also said the United States is losing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and told U.S. soldiers they are fighting President Bush’s “crusades.”

“Instead of killing yourself for Bush … why not surrender to the truth (of Islam), escape from the unbelieving army and join the winning side. Time is running out so make the right choice before it’s too late,” he said.

Al-Zawahri gave only a brief introduction to the video, calling on Americans to convert to Islam.

(AP) Al-Qaida’s deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri speaks in a new videotape issued Saturday, Sept. 2, 2006…. Full Image “To the American people and the people of the West in general … God sent his Prophet Muhammad with guidance and the religion of truth … and sent him as a herald,” he said.

The CIA said it had conducted a technical review on the videotape and concluded the voice is al-Zawahri’s. A CIA spokeswoman said the agency is not authorized to conduct such analysis on U.S. citizens such as Gadahn.

White House spokeswoman Christie Parell said the message reflects al-Qaida’s “continued attempts to subjugate the world under its twisted view of Islam, which labels as enemies and infidels those who do not have the same beliefs.”

Little is known about Gadahn’s role in al-Qaida. A Californian who converted to Islam, he disappeared soon after the Sept. 11 attacks. In 2004, the FBI announced it was seeking Gadahn in connection with possible terrorist threats against the U.S., but adding it did not have information linking him to any specific terror activities.

“You know that if you die as an unbeliever in battle against the Muslims you’re going straight to Hell without passing ‘Go,’” Gadahn said on the video, addressing American soldiers. “You know you’re considered by Bush and his bunch of warmongers as nothing more than expendable cannon fodder … You know they couldn’t care less about your safety and well-being.”

“We send a special invitation (to convert to Islam) to all of you fighting Bush’s crusader pipe dream in Afghanistan, Iraq and wherever else ‘W’ has sent you to die. You know the war can’t be won,” he said, using Bush’s nickname.

Gadahn also urged other Americans to convert to Islam.

“It is time for the unbelievers to discard these incoherent and illogical beliefs,” he said. “Isn’t it the time for the Christians, Jews, Buddhists and atheists to cast off the cloak of the spiritual darkness which enshrouds them and emerge into the light of Islam?”

Gadahn and al-Zawahri appeared in separate parts of the video, which was released by al-Qaida’s production wing, As-Sahab. Gadahn spoke with his face uncovered, resembling FBI photos, with his name and nom de guerre – “Azzam the American” – written in titles in Arabic and English next to him. Arabic subtitles translated his comments.

Besides the July 7 video, Gadahn is believed to be a masked figure who appeared in two previous videos not officially from al-Qaida, one given to ABC television in 2004 and another a few days before the fourth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

In the 2005 tape, the speaker – who had black cloth draped over his face, leaving only his eyes visible – threatened new terror attacks in Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia. The 2004 tape praised the Sept. 11 attacks and said a new wave of attacks could come at any moment.

Much of Gadahn’s latest speech was dedicated to urging Americans to convert to Islam, and he dotted it with fluently recited Arabic verses from the Quran and stories from Islamic history.

He denounced Christianity as a “hollow shell of a religion, whose followers cling to an empty faith and a false conviction in their own salvation.”

“It is time for the unbelievers to discard these incoherent and illogical beliefs,” he said. “We invite all Americans and other unbelievers to Islam, wherever they are.”

Gadahn grew up in rural simplicity on a ranch southwest of Hemet, Calif. His father, Philip, said he moved there in the 1970s to escape the noise and traffic of the city, changing the family name from Pearlman because he was starting a new life. The family tried raising goats as a business, but it wasn’t profitable and they now keep them just to eat the grass around the home as fire protection.

Gadahn did not attend college, choosing instead to move to the suburbs of Los Angeles where he became a Muslim and worshipped at the Islamic Society of Orange County. The mosque later expelled him for attacking one of its leaders.

The new video had been advertised on militant Web sites for several days. Al-Zawahri last appeared in a video July 27, calling for Muslims to unite in a holy war against Israel and to join the fighting in Lebanon and Gaza.

Nancy Pearlman, Gadahn’s aunt, declined to comment about the tape when contacted by The Associated Press, saying she had not seen it. She declined to talk about anything else regarding Gadahn.

Experts warn of an accidental atomic war
Nuclear missile modified for conventional attack on Iran could set off alarm in Russia

(10-06) 04:00 PDT Washington — A Pentagon project to modify its deadliest nuclear missile for use as a conventional weapon against targets such as North Korea and Iran could unwittingly spark an atomic war, two weapons experts warned Thursday.

Russian military officers might misconstrue a submarine-launched conventional D5 intercontinental ballistic missile and conclude that Russia is under nuclear attack, said Ted Postol, a physicist and professor of science, technology and national security policy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Pavel Podvig, a physicist and weapons specialist at Stanford.

“Any launch of a long-range nonnuclear armed sea or land ballistic missile will cause an automated alert of the Russian early warning system,” Postol told reporters.

The triggering of an alert wouldn’t necessarily precipitate a retaliatory hail of Russian nuclear missiles, Postol said. Nevertheless, he said, “there can be no doubt that such an alert will greatly increase the chances of a nuclear accident involving strategic nuclear forces.”

Podvig said launching conventional versions of a missile from a submarine that normally carries nuclear ICBMs “expands the possibility for a misunderstanding so widely that it is hard to contemplate.”

Mixing conventional and nuclear D5s on a U.S. Trident submarine “would be very dangerous,” Podvig said, because the Russians have no way of discriminating between the two types of missiles once they are launched.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the project would increase the danger of accidental nuclear war.

“The media and expert circles are already discussing plans to use intercontinental ballistic missiles to carry nonnuclear warheads,” he said in May. “The launch of such a missile could … provoke a full-scale counterattack using strategic nuclear forces.”

Accidental nuclear war is not so far-fetched. In 1995, Russia initially interpreted the launch of a Norwegian scientific rocket as the onset of a U.S. nuclear attack. Then-President Boris Yeltsin activated his “nuclear briefcase” in the first stages of preparation to launch a retaliatory strike before the mistake was discovered.

The United States and Russia have acknowledged the possibility that Russia’s equipment might mistakenly conclude the United States was attacking with nuclear missiles.

In 1998, the two countries agreed to set up a joint radar center in Moscow operated by U.S. and Russian forces to supplement Russia’s aging equipment and reduce the threat of accidental war. But the center has yet to open.

A major technical problem exacerbates the risk of using the D5 as a conventional weapon: the decaying state of Russia’s nuclear forces. Russia’s nuclear missiles are tethered to early warning radars that have been in decline since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. And Russia, unlike the United States, lacks sufficient satellites to supplement the radars and confirm whether missile launches are truly under way or are false alarms.

The scenario that worries Postol, Podvig and other weapons experts is what might happen if the United States and North Korea come to blows and a conventional D5 is launched against a target there from a submerged Trident submarine. Depending on the sub’s location, the flying time to Russia could be under 15 minutes so the Russians would have little time to confirm the trajectory — using decaying equipment — before deciding to launch a nuclear strike on the United States.

The D5 missile project involves the removal of nuclear warheads from as many as two dozen D5 ICBMs that are carried aboard the U.S. fleet of 12 Ohio-class Trident submarines.

The Pentagon has the project on an accelerated schedule, with the goal of fielding the weapons alongside their nuclear variants in two years. Each Trident submarine carries 24 D5 missiles, and the plan calls for using two of those as conventional weapons in each sub.

The rocket fired by a submerged submarine would barrel up through the ocean powered by its three-stage engine and rapidly ascend through the atmosphere at speeds up to 20,000 feet per second into outer space.

The warhead compartment of the missile would then plummet back to earth, guided to its target within about 50 feet by sophisticated sensors. Defense officials believe it would gain enough speed and force to penetrate underground command bunkers.

Homeland Security October Surprise: Web site is claiming that seven NFL football stadiums will be hit with radiological dirty bombs this weekend?

WASHINGTON — A Web site is claiming that seven NFL football stadiums will be hit with radiological dirty bombs this weekend, but the government on Wednesday expressed doubts about the threat.

The warning, posted Oct. 12, was part of an ongoing Internet conversation titled “New Attack on America Be Afraid.” It mentioned NFL stadiums in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland, where games are scheduled for this weekend.

The Homeland Security Department alerted authorities and stadium owners in those cities, as well as the NFL, of the Web message but said the threat was being viewed “with strong skepticism.” Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said there was no intelligence that indicated such an attack was imminent, and that the alert was “out of an abundance of caution.”

“The department strongly encourages the public to continue to go about their plans, including attending events that involve large public gatherings such as football games,” Knocke said.

The FBI also expressed doubt about the threat.

The nation’s alert level remains at yellow, signaling an elevated risk of an attack. The threat level for airline flights is at orange, a higher level, where it has been since a foiled plot to bomb U.S.-bound commercial jets was revealed on Aug. 10.
