'The Hunting of the Snark:' US Evidence In Detainee Case
--'Lewis Carroll notwithstanding, the fact the government has 'said it thrice' does not make an allegation true,' wrote Judge Merrick B. Garland, quoting from Carroll's poem 'The Hunting of the Snark.'
01 Jul 2008 In reversing a military tribunal's determination that a Chinese prisoner was an "enemy combatant," a federal appeals court criticized the government's evidence and compared its legal theories to a nonsensical 19th-century poem. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit wrote in a 39-page opinion released yesterday that tribunals and courts must be able to assess whether evidence is reliable before determining the fate of prisoners. That did not happen in the case of Huzaifa Parhat, a Chinese Uighur determined to be an enemy combatant by a tribunal that relied heavily on questionable evidence in classified documents, the appeals court found.

Klock. The author of the Texas Bomb Farce ...

HOUSTON, Feb. 29 — Cmdr. Brian Klock, a Navy Reserve intelligence officer, is on a mission to gain control of Southeast Texas Congressional District 22, the same petro-patch that once belonged to Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.
A strong showing in Tuesday’s state Republican primary could put him in a runoff contest for the Republican nomination of this most Republican area. Several of the 10 candidates vying for the party nomination have military and military contractor backgrounds. If none of them garners a majority of the primary votes, then Klock could become a viable runoff candidate.
It’s hard to imagine being a more menacing figure than DeLay, known as "The Hammer" and "The Exterminator" before corruption charges ended his career, but Klock succeeds in spades. On Feb. 25 he pasted a huge billboard on Houston’s Southwest Freeway showing the city’s downtown district being consumed by a nuclear fireball rising up into a mushroom cloud. His inscription read: "The Threat Is Real — Ask Brian Klock."
http://www.klockfor congress. org/node/ 30
Accused of terrorizing the public, he offered a hasty excuse that strongly argued against both his intelligence and his honesty. "I want to make sure we didn’t show it as a nuclear attack because I personally thought that would be over the top," Klock said. "It’s up to the viewer to imagine what kind of weapon caused the fire."
Brian "I’m not a politician" Klock, as he styles himself, isn’t subtle. For nearly two months now, since he announced his candidacy in early January, he has been plugging his guts with the military’s "Meals, Ready to Eat" (MRE’s) to boost the cause against "Islamofascists" — and boost his superpatriot image in the process. He portrays himself as a lofty hawk bravely soaring above the Homeland state and global war in his counter-terror and counter-intelligenc e capacities. He boasts of having been alerted on the afternoon of 9/11, 2001 that he would be going on active duty for the government — but he is utterly unwilling to discuss what he was doing or where he was for several years, only saying cryptically that he was abroad.
There’s an old joke that we’ve used forever in military intelligence circles: "Ask me no questions. If I tell you the answer I have to kill you!"
There are few places in the United States where a character right out of the movie Dr. Strangelove, like Cmdr. Klock, could hope to impress his neighbors — as anything but a dangerous militarist, that is. District 22, south and east of Houston and home turf for Big Oil, is one of those few places. It is an amalgamation of blue-collar rednecks in gas guzzling pickup trucks and well-off suburban Republicans in gas guzzling SUVs.
These were the Christian soldiers who once optimistically marched off to Bush’s messianic war on Islamic terror wherever he proclaimed it to be — which was, coincidentally, in the middle of the Middle East’s oil resources. For the most part they believed that Islam was ready to be converted to Christianity, sectarian Iraq was eager for democracy, and postwar gasoline would be a dollar a gallon. They are more or less like the rest of the nation, God love them, and their greatest flaw is their blind patriotism — which is what Cmdr. Klock is counting on.
Covert Cmdr. Klock is waging a terror war on the public consciousness with his "vote for me or die" approach, and he has some professional help of my acquaintance for that purpose. Lt. Col. Gordon S. Fowkes and I were both members of the Army’s 75th Division in Houston, which specialized in conducting large-scale training exercises. Whereas my own specialties were military intelligence and public affairs, Fowkes’ background was military intelligence and psychological operations — making him a perfect addition to the Klock fear campaign.
Whereas I wrote military analysis for the Houston Chronicle — accurately predicting that Iraq would turn into a "quicksand war," Fowkes has intermittently worked as a Bush League military expert in the local media, a bellicose cheerleader yelling his heart out for the cheerleader in chief, exhorting a discouraged public to keep rooting for an eventual victory in the great game of war.
A few days after the largely unreported Battle of Baghdad in early April, 2003, Fowkes and I had a polite clash in an assembly at the University of Houston. It was about whether media coverage from Iraq had become a public affairs operation in the US public interest (as he asserted, or a psychological operation against the US public interest (as I asserted). I believe time has vindicated me, both in my negative predictions for the Iraq war and in my negative analysis of the US media’s role in promoting, not reporting, the war.
In 2004 this dark character in Klock’s dark horse campaign warned me that meddling with Bush administration illegalities — as I had done in a complaint filed with the Army Inspector General — was a hazardous undertaking at best. Reading his words, it’s hard for me to judge whether he was being helpful or threatening
A couple of years later a minor flotilla of swift boaters attacked me and my flagship newspaper, The Lone Star Iconoclast, for our journalism, and they summoned Fowkes for support as a high-ranking Internet troll. According to Klock campaign manager Charlie Sena, Fowkes warned Klock & Co. to steer clear of me this week, as I was trying to interview them. Both Klock and Fowkes have refused to comment for this article.
Fowkes isn’t the only dubious character associated with the Klock campaign. The grand admiral of swift boating, Texas millionaire Bob Perry, has patted Klock’s back and padded his bank to help him along. Perry’s endorsement and support bode well for Klock, since the dirty politics godfather gave similar patronage to up-and-coming George W. Bush in his Texas days, and to prior District 22 representative Tom DeLay.
Klock’s mantra of a looming terrorist threat against Houston is old material, first written over five years ago by a local military analyst for publication by the Houston Chronicle. "Don’t laugh at duct tape; it saves lives"
http://www.ghosttro op.net/ducttape. htm made the same arguments that Klock is using now. I should know, I wrote it.
In those days I was a supporter of the official account of 9/11 as an attack carried out by Al Qaeda under the direction of bin Laden. In the five years since then, I’ve learned better. On Feb. 23, just two days before the Klock campaign billboard showed Houston being nuked, my most recent terror analysis was published worldwide after being translated into several languages: "False Flag Prospects, 2008 — Top Three US Target Cities"
http://www.globalre search.ca/ index.php? context=va&aid=8165
In last week’s column, I repeat my assertion of five years earlier — and Klock’s assertion of two days later — that Houston is the nation’s top terror target. There has been one all-important change in my thesis, though: I no longer believe that Houston is in danger from Al Qaeda and bin Laden, but rather from "Al CIAduh" and Bush.
Call me a conspiracy theorist if you wish, but Cmdr. Klock, a candidate who nukes Houston on a billboard, won’t answer questions about his spooky past, won’t return media calls and hangs out with a PSYOPS specialist, is a pretty creepy character at best. At worst, he and his cronies from the global war and Homeland state may not be running a political campaign at all — they may be running a military campaign to set up a false flag attack in Southeast Texas, and to explode the first nuke of World War III.

And now for some Humor...

A young boy went up to his father and asked him, 'Dad, what is the difference between 'potentially' and 'realistically' ?'

The father thought for a moment, then answered, 'Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars, and then ask your brother if he'd sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Come back and tell me what you learn from that.'

So the boy went to his mother and asked, 'Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?'

The mother replied, 'Of course I would! We could really use that money to fix up the house and send you kids to a great University!'

The boy then went to his sister and asked, 'Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?'

The girl replied, 'Oh my Gawd! I LOVE Brad Pitt I would sleep with him in a heartbeat, are you nuts?'

The boy then went to his brother and asked, 'Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?'

'Of course,' the brother replied. 'Do you know what a million bucks would buy?'

The boy pondered the answers for a few days and then went back to his dad.

His father asked him, 'Did you find out the difference between 'potentially' and 'realistically' ?'

The boy replied, 'Yes, 'Potentially' , you and I are sitting on three million dollars ..

But 'realistically' , we're living with two hookers and a homo.


Oh Say, Can You...

by Judith H. Young, Ph.D.

On June 24, 2008 on the Alex Jones Show, a nationally syndicated news/talk program that also has a huge Internet audience, retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern discussed the potential for a U.S.-Israeli attack on Iran before the Bush Administration leaves office next year.

The German Reichstag fire solidified Hitler's dictatorship

Former morning briefer for Presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr., McGovern noted that Iran is carefully avoiding any actions that could be interpreted as provocations for an attack: hence justification for an attack would require a pretext manufactured by the Administration and/or the Israelis.

In an editorial published by AntiWar.com on June 20, McGovern had brought our attention to a little-noticed statement by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert about a June 4 White House meeting with President George W. Bush:

  • "We reached agreement on the need to take care of the Iranian threat. I left with a lot less question marks [than] I had entered with regarding the means, the timetable restrictions, and American resoluteness to deal with the problem. George Bush understands the severity of the Iranian threat and the need to vanquish it, and intends to act on that matter before the end of his term in the White House."1

McGovern concluded that a perfect storm seems to be gathering in late summer or early fall, when the Bush Administration and allies in Israel will launch attacks against Iran .

There is reason to hypothesize that the requisite staged provocation for an attack on Iran has already been planned and is scheduled to take place in Denver at the time of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in late August.

This hypothesis stems from information from insider geopolitical specialists who are disgusted by the ruthless onslaught of fascism in the United States and are fighting it at great risk from behind the scenes. It is also supported by circumstantial evidence, including “anti-terrorism” drills held in Denver throughout the week of June 16, 2008.

The weeklong “realistic urban environment” drills conducted by the U.S. Special Operations Command, which coordinates all the military branches’ crack commando units from Army Rangers to Navy SEALS, featured unmarked black helicopters conducting maneuvers and landings as well as the loading and unloading of Special Operations forces at multiple locations in the city.

Two major staging grounds placed under military control with the blessing of the city were a large abandoned rubber factory on the south side of Denver and the former Children’s Hospital at Downey and 21st Street . A Halliburton truck was observed with the designation 'Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team' (CST), a team sporting a number of large SUVs carrying sophisticated communication equipment.

A special Department of Defense anti-terrorism unit based in Wyoming , CST was present in Denver in alignment with the scenario posited by the drills: the detonation of a weapon of mass destruction, such as a radioactive dirty bomb, that would kill 20,000 people.2

Special Operations Command spokesman Lt. Steve Ruh said the drills were a culmination of a two-week training exercise that was part of the “war on terror.” Denver mayor John Hickenlooper denied that the exercises were security preparations for the DNC in August.

However, the following arguments could be posed for a connection with the DNC, not only as security preparations but also as dry run preparations for detonation of a contrived terrorist dirty bomb somewhere in the city.

In other major false flag “terrorist” events, such as the 9/11 attacks on U.S. targets in 2001 and the “7/7” subway bombings in London in 2005, prior terrorism drills were held that were similar in key aspects to the later false flag events themselves.

Dry run preparations for a dirty bomb would provide valuable experience regarding implementing that particular event in that particular urban location (such as familiarity with the city layout, including that of subways and hospitals).

Anti-terrorism, anti-protest, and other security measures would already be in place at the time of the Convention, including detention camps and an array of armed personnel and weaponry.

The choice of a presidential campaign convention as the occasion for the dirty bomb would readily lend itself to official maligning of the perpetrators for committing horrifying violence during an event so symbolic of the American democratic tradition. With Iran as the proclaimed culprit, the propaganda machine could thus go into high gear in its efforts to galvanize support for war.

It would also lend itself to scare tactics capitalizing on the terrorists’ ability to breach the massive security measures surrounding such an event. And with Iran as the declared perpetrator, official spin regarding its purported nuclear ambitions would gain new credibility.

Finally, a staged “Iranian” dirty bomb detonated to coincide with the DNC in August could be expected to revitalize support for the Bush Administration’ s post 9/11 anti-terrorism matrix and for the neocon ideology that has infused it.

For many months, a number of political analysts have feared that elements in the Bush Administration have been planning major false flag “terrorism” such as the detonation of a radioactive “dirty bomb” in a U.S. city, terrorism on a scale that would justify cancellation of the coming presidential election, a declaration of martial law, and refusal to relinquish power to a successor administration.

In May 2007, Bush issued National Security Directive No. 51 giving himself, on his own initiative, the power to control the executive, legislative, and judicial branches -- all functions of government -- in the event of a catastrophic national emergency. National emergency is defined elastically as “any incident, regardless of location” that would “damage or disrupt” the U.S. population, economy, or government functions.

There is no language in Directive 51 that requires Bush to obtain the consent of Congress before he seizes such power, nor is there an acknowledgement that under existing law he is already required to do just that. Directive 51 simply ignores the existing National Emergencies Act, and in so doing Bush authorizes himself - or if he is disabled, the Vice President - to control all functions of government for the duration of the emergency “and afterward.”

A combination of official pronouncements, expansion of executive powers, and Congressional trends has led many analysts to fear that another self-serving problem-reaction- solution scenario is indeed in the offing, in which as a response to the reaction of widespread public fear the solution of martial law would be offered and welcomed.

Under Presidential Directive 51, martial law in the U.S. would automatically extend to Canada and Mexico as a result of advances, achieved largely through stealth and disinformation, in implementing a North American Union (NAU). Under martial law, the U.S. President would assume authoritarian control over the three governmental functions—executive, legislative and judicial—for all three nations.

Extending martial law even more globally could be facilitated by staging additional events entailing further massive loss of life.

If these events ensued within days of the first instance of violence and death, they would preclude any real recovery of the populace from the original trauma, and indeed they would escalate it to the degree necessary for acceptance of worldwide martial governance.

A warning of just such a scenario was given in 1974 by Dr. Wernher von Braun, who stated that the dark forces controlling world wealth and political power had over a third of a century ago planned a series of escalating false flag events as a means for acquiring total global control.3

This broader sort of speculation is in fact just that. But our minimal hypothesis of upcoming false flag terrorism in Denver is supported in its general themes by the informed analysis of astute thinkers in the public arena, and in its more specific expectations by the insider leaks of “White Hat” patriots. A parallel situation occurred six months ago when sources within the U.S. intelligence community leaked a neocon plot to assassinate Presidential candidate Ron Paul to freedom fighter and intrepid researcher Daniel Estulin.

In mid-December 2007 staff writer Paul Joseph Watson of Alex Jones’ Prison Planet.com reported these events:

  • "Best-selling author and Bilderberg sleuth Daniel Estulin says he has received information from sources inside the U.S. intelligence community which suggests that people from the highest levels of the U.S. government are considering an assassination attempt against Congressman Ron Paul because they are threatened by his burgeoning popularity.
  • "Estulin, whose information has unfortunately proven very accurate in the past, went public with the bombshell news during an appearance on The Alex Jones Show today….
  • "Estulin, an award winning investigative journalist, said that he was given the information from a source that has been reliable for over a decade in providing accurate projections of future events based on what the elite were discussing in their own circles…
  • "The Ron Paul phenomenon has galvanized an entire nation," said Estulin, adding that both the people who discovered the plot and its potential protagonists are terrified at the consequences of what such an action will be because of the difficulty in judging just how severely the general public will react."4

In a second article on December 21, 2007, Watson revealed additional information:

  • "Appearing [again] on The Alex Jones Show, Estulin said that his sources for the information were real patriots who love America and are desperate to see the truth get out, but that he always took the precaution of getting verification from more than one individual on each piece of information he releases.
  • "What I said about Ron Paul last week came from two different people who don't know each other," said Estulin, adding that his source had in turn got the information from sources within the Neo-Con camp and that it was individuals from within the Neo-Con camp that are considering what would happen if Ron Paul was assassinated. "5

Estulin publicized the plot at length on the Alex Jones radio and television venues, which resulted in its massive exposure across the Internet and in giving its perpetrators the answer they had been seeking regarding probable public reaction to an assassination of Ron Paul.

There are wonderful lessons here for the current case of insider concern about a horrific DNC false flag disaster that could claim 20,000 lives. Even if this concern has only a small probability of manifesting, it is nevertheless vital to disseminate it widely with a view to thwarting the plot and all of its attendant horrors.
