Ms Rice refused to say which countries were involved with the prisons.

"Were I to confirm or deny,

say yes or say no

then I would be compromising intelligence information +

I'm not going to do that," she said yesterday.

Rice deliberately refrained from criticising the US but said Germany took its international obligations on human rights seriously.

Rice had also raised the issue of CIA "overflights" following revelations that the CIA had flown to Germany 437 times.

Standing next to Ms Rice, Ms Merkel yesterday said that the US had "accepted" it had "erroneously taken" Mr Masri, who spent five months in a freezing Afghan jail after the CIA grabbed him in Macedonia.

The affair is also bad news for Germany's former government under Gerhard Schröder.

It apparently knew about the CIA blunder but agreed to US requests to say nothing about it.

A special Germany parliamentary commission would now investigate, Ms Merkel said.

The American Civil Liberties Union, meanwhile, yesterday announced that it was suing the CIA + its director at the time George Tenet over his case.

Mr Masri had been due to address a press conference - but was apparently unable to attend after US officials refused him permission to enter the country.[0f the free]

Ms Rice declined to comment directly. But asked if she could "guarantee" that the CIA would not snatch anyone else,

Rice said: "Any policy will sometimes have mistakes. It is our promise to our partners that, should that be the case, we will rectify those mistakes."
Rice admits US mistakes in war on terror after wave of criticism across Europe

· New claims that CIA shut down secret prisons
· Germany to investigate kidnap scandal Luke Harding in Berlin


Guardian Condoleezza Rice began her tour of Europe yesterday with a rare public admission that the US had made "mistakes" in the war on terror.

Speaking after a meeting with Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, Ms Rice again insisted that the US did not "condone" torture.

"It is against US law," Rice said.

But she appeared to concede for the first time that the Bush administration's uncompromising policy of "rendition" against terrorist suspects had sometimes gone wrong.

"We recognise that any policy will sometimes result in errors," the US secretary of state said.

Rice added: "When this happens we will do everything we can to rectify it."

Keepers at the Gate
He Who Controls Television Controls the Masses -By Manuel Valenzuela
With Americans watching so much
television on a weekly basis, discarding books of enlightenment for monitors of idiocy,

preferring the drug of fantasy over the sobering realm of reality,

no longer capable of analytical, logical thought, choosing to incorporate as their own the views, beliefs + opinions of corporate media,

the keepers at the gate are free to do as they please, disseminating lies + distortions + manipulations + propaganda + fictions into our homes + the minds of our family + young + old + never discriminating +

Torture Is an American Value

07.Dec.2005 Reality vs. the Rhetoric -By S. Brian Willson
Instead of the recent euphemism "illegal combatants,"

the USA in Vietnam claimed prisoners were "criminal" +

therefore exempt from Geneva Convention protections.

The use of torture as a function of terror,

or its equivalent in sadistic behavior,

has been historic de facto US policy. Continued

The 2,000 American dead are an embarrassment.

Funerals are unobtrusive, out of harm's way.

The mutilated rot in their beds, some for the rest of their lives.

So the dead + the mutilated both rot, in different kinds of graves. Continued
Reagan's out to get Dean It's not every day that
the son of a president calls for the death of a major figure like Howard Dean.

I think Reagan meant to say "Dean should be hanged ."
The proposition that taxpayer monies were funneled into political campaigns is hardly outside the realm of the thinkable, especially in light of the Wilkes + Wade CIA connections.

For decades, the CIA has used similar methods to engineer elections in other countries - in Italy + in France + in Lebanon + in Japan + ..

"Cassini" hatte schon im August erste Anzeichen für die überraschende Aktivität entdeckt.

Die neuen Bilder belegen nun eindrucksvoll, dass die Forscher mit ihren ersten Vermutungen richtig lagen.

Zu sehen sind mehrere Partikelstrahlen, die von der Region um den Südpol von Enceladus stammen + fast 500 Kilometer weit ins All reichen, was in etwa dem Durchmesser des kleinen Mondes entspricht.
Im Augenblick sind der Studie zufolge 38,5 Millionen Inder online. In den vergangenen zwei Jahren ist der Anteil der Netznutzer an der Gesamtbevölkerung damit schon gewaltig gestiegen - Anfang 2004 lag die Anzahl demnach noch bei 25 Millionen. Für Ende 2008 prophezeit die Internet and Mobile Association of India nun einen noch größeren Sprung auf 100 Millionen.
Vor allem der Onlinekauf von Flug- und Bahntickets, Büchern und Haushaltsgeräten befeuere den Boom, sagte ein Sprecher des Branchenverbandes. Die Vorhersage basiere auf der erwarteten Zunahme von E-Commerce und Online-Kommunikation. Der Studie zufolge hat allein die Anzahl von Internetcafés in Indien von 18.000 im Jahr 2001 auf 105.350 im Jahr 2005 zugenommen

gelangt der englische Dramatiker zur Einsicht, dass die politische Rhetorik den Bürger verdumme und ihm die Wahrheit vorenthalte.
Durchgespielt wurde diese These am Beispiel der USA, die Pinter systematischer Verbrechen in aller Welt beschuldigte.

So erklärte Pinter in der in Stockholm auf Video abgespielten Rede, Amerika zerstöre souveräne Staaten mittels Korruption + verdeckter Gewalt.

Man verfahre so, "dass man das Herz des Landes infiziert, dass man eine bösartige Wucherung in Gang setzt und zuschaut wie der Faulbrand erblüht. Ist die Bevölkerung unterjocht worden oder totgeprügelt - es läuft auf dasselbe hinaus - und sitzen die eigenen Freunde, das Militär + die großen Kapitalgesellschaften bequem am Schalthebel, tritt man vor die Kamera und sagt, die Demokratie habe sich behauptet".
WWII. -Nach dem- hätten die USA außerdem "jede rechtsgerichtete Militärdiktatur auf der Welt" unterstützt oder sie in vielen Fällen erst hervorgebracht.

"Ich verweise auf Indonesien + Griechenland + Uruguay + Brasilien + Paraguay + Haiti + Türkei + die Philippinen + Guatemala + El Salvador + natürlich Chile", so Pinter.

"Die Schrecken, die Amerika Chile” [11.Sep.1973-07.Dec.2005] “zufügte, können nie gesühnt + nie verziehen werden.

In diesen Ländern hat es Hunderttausende von Toten gegeben.

Hat es sie wirklich gegeben?

Und sind sie wirklich alle der US-Außenpolitik zuzuschreiben?

Die Antwort lautet ja, es hat sie gegeben +

sie sind der amerikanischen Außenpolitik zuzuschreiben.

Aber davon weiß man natürlich nichts."

Wer altersmilde Dankesworte erwartet hatte, wurde von einem Donnerschlag überrascht:

00.000.2005 -diesjährige- Der Literaturnobelpreisträger Harold Pinter nutzte seine

07.Dec.2005 -heute- veröffentlichte Rede für eine massive Amerika-Kritik. Fazit: Die USA sind "brutal + verächtlich skrupellos".

Letztes Jahr hatte sich Elfriede Jelinek noch in ausladende Sprachartistik eingesponnen, von Politik oder gar Gesellschaftskritik kein Ton.

Ganz anders der britische Dramatiker Harold Pinter, der in seiner gerade veröffentlichten Literaturnobelpreisrede die Gelegenheit nutzte, über die Suche des Schriftstellers nach Wahrheit zu sprechen - und wie diese Suche von korrupten Machthabern immer mehr erschwert wird.
Das US-Heimatschutzministerium berichtete, ein Flugmarschall habe den Mann mehrfach aufgefordert, sich auf den Boden zu legen. Als der Passagier dies immer wieder ignorierte, mit den Händen vielmehr in die Tasche mit der vermeintlichen Bombe griff und in den Tunnel zum Terminal rannte , eröffnete der Sicherheitsbeamte das Feuer. Der 44-jährige US-Amerikaner wurde dabei tödlich verletzt. Ob sich in der Tasche des Mannes tatsächlich ein Sprengsatz befand, wurde zunächst nicht bekannt gegeben.
Eine Augenzeugin berichtete dem US-Sender WTVJ, der verdächtige Passagier sei im Flugzeug wild im Gang herum gerannt. Eine Frau sei hinter ihm hergelaufen und habe gerufen, ihr Mann sei geisteskrank. Er habe seine Medizin nicht genommen.
Den Angaben zufolge war der Vorfall seit den erhöhten Sicherheitsmaßnahmen im Zuge der Terroranschläge vom 11.Sep.2001 das erste Mal, dass ein Flugmarschall einen tödlichen Schuss abgab. Das aus Kolumbien kommende Flugzeug der US-Fluggesellschaft American Airlines mit der Flugnummer 924 hielt sich den Angaben zufolge zu einem Zwischenstopp auf dem Internationalen Flughafen von Miami im US-Bundesstaat Florida auf. Nach den Schüssen umstellten Mitglieder eines Einsatzkommandos die Maschine.

(Politik,Funk-Internet: Kabelloses Breitband für Kaiserslautern
Denn die Wissenschaftler haben festgestellt, dass die mächtig bestückten Fledermausmännchen nur ahnungslose Opfer weiblicher Zügellosigkeit sind. Wechseln die Weibchen häufig den Partner und legen wenig Wert auf Treue, haben die Männchen der betreffenden Spezies mehr zwischen den Beinen und weniger zwischen den Ohren. Die Mausohr-Fledermaus Myotis albescens aus der Familie der auch in Europa vertretenen Glattnasen etwa steckt mehr als doppelt so viel Energie in die Hoden wie ins Hirn, bemerken die Forscher.
Bei Fledermausarten mit monogamen Weibchen seien die Denkorgane der Männchen dagegen verhältnismäßig groß. So trägt die holde Weiblichkeit am Ende doch noch den moralischen Sieg davon: Bei Arten, die es zum Überleben weniger bunt treiben müssen, gilt die partnerschaftliche Treue - und schon werden die Männchen schlauer.

El-Masri war Ende 2003 in Mazedonien festgenommen worden. Nach seinen Aussagen wurde er für fünf Monate in ein geheimes Gefängnis in Afghanistan gebracht. Er war freigelassen worden, nachdem die USA zu dem Ergebnis gekommen waren, es gebe keine Gründe mehr für seine weitere Inhaftierung. Auf die Frage, ob die USA je konkrete Erkenntnisse gehabt hätten, die dessen Gefangenhaltung gerechtfertigt hätten, lehnte ein US-Regierungsvertreter eine Stellungnahme ab. El-Masri sei von den US-Behörden ursprünglich wegen des Verdachts festgenommen worden, einen falschen Pass zu benutzen. Außerdem sei sein Name mit dem eines Terroristenführers verwechselt worden sei. Der Pass erwies sich allerdings später als echt.
Möglicherweise habe sich die Kanzlerin mehr auf Medienberichte bezogen als auf den Inhalt ihrer Gespräche mit der US-Regierung, sagten anschließend die US-Regierungsvertreter laut Reuters. Von der Bundesregierung gibt es bislang keine Reaktion auf den Streit.
Am Nachmittag hatte die US-Bürgerrechtsorganisation ACLU in Washington angekündigt, die CIA im Fall el-Masri zu verklagen. Möglicherweise stehen die Irritationen, die Merkels Bemerkung in der Umgebung von Rice auslöste, im Zusammenhang mit Gerichtsverfahren in den USA. Einen "Fehler" zuzugeben, könnte die Rechtsposition der US-Regierung gefährden. Bis heute hat die Bush-Administration in keinem der umstrittenen Fälle, in denen die CIA Verdächtige in befreundeten Staaten verhörte, öffentlich Fehler eingestanden.
In dem Gespräch mit Rice hatte Merkel erklärt, dass Deutschland von den USA die Einhaltung demokratischer Regeln bei der Bekämpfung des internationalen Terrorismus erwartet. Die Kanzlerin bekräftigte, die Bundesrepublik werde die Amerikaner weiter in ihren Bemühen unterstützen, Terroranschläge zu verhindern. Das schließe auch Aktivitäten der Geheimdienste ein. Die deutsch-amerikanische Partnerschaft beruhe auf gemeinsamen Werten wie Demokratie und Rechtsstaatlichkeit, die auch im Kampf gegen den Terrorismus gelten müssten. Rice versicherte, die USA hielten sich bei ihrem Vorgehen an nationales und internationales Recht.

has been run by the secret services of the states concerned in collaboration with NATO,


fearing the danger that such clandestine network may have interfered illegally in the internal political affairs of Member States or may still do so,


whereas in certain Member States military secret services (or uncontrolled branches thereof) were involved in serious cases of terrorism + crime as evidenced by, various judicial inquiries,


whereas these organizations operated + continue to operate completely outside the. law

since they are not subject to any parliamentary control + frequently those holding the highest government + constitutional posts are kept in the dark as to these matters,


whereas the various `GLADIO' organizations have at their disposal independent arsenals + military resources which give them an unknown strike potential,

thereby jeopardizing the democratic structures of the countries in which they are operating or have been operating,


greatly concerned at the existence of decision-making + operational bodies which are not subject to any form of democratic control + are of a completely clandestine nature

at a time when greater Community cooperation in the field of security is a constant subject of discussion,


Condemns the clandestine creation of manipulative + operational networks + Calls for a full investigation into the nature + structure + aims + all other aspects of these clandestine organizations

or any splinter groups,

their use for illegal interference in the internal political affairs of the countries concerned,

the problem of terrorism in Europe + the possible collusion of the secret services of Member States or third countries;

05.Jul.2001 Richard Clarke in a White House meeting : "something spectacular is going to happen."

If anyone knew most about warnings + war plans at the same time, it was Richard Clarke.

Interestingly Richard Clarke was also connected with John O'Neill, who died in the World Trade Center WTC .

This is what the New Yorker wrote about Richard Clarke with John O'Neill relationship:

11.Sep.2001 -in a PBS interview on- But with all Richard Clarke s connections,

Richard Clarke only response was:

"Well, they may well have had some kind of indication that something was going to happen."

With all due respect, but this seems to be bogus.

In the same interview Richard Clarke also said something else rather strange:

" terrorist groups, there isn't anybody except people who want to be terrorists.

So it cuts back on your ability to recruit spies inside terrorist organizations

if you can't recruit people with some kind of a violent past.."

How does this fit with the history of the Taliban, which was created with the help of the CIA + ISI?

It also seems like a Freudian slip,

when the CIA confirms something like this:

"US had agents inside al-Qaeda ...the terror group, but the intercepts + field reports didn't specify where or when a strike might occur.."

Woolsey definitely knew about these CIA moles.

Did he let the attack happen on purpose?

If so, under whose direction or influence?

11.Sep.2001 James Woolsey :

"Recruit spies inside terrorist organizations if you can't recruit people with some kind of a violent past.."

Many people claim, that

11.Sep.2001 -before- ex-CIA director Woolsey had so much insider information, that

11.Sep.2001 -before- it seems very unrealistic to claim ex-CIA director Woolsey wasn't able to connect the dots of all these early warnings +

11.Sep.2001 -before- it seems very unrealistic to claim ex-CIA director Woolsey didn't warn the highest levels of Pentagon +

11.Sep.2001 -before- it seems very unrealistic to claim ex-CIA director Woolsey didn't warn the White House to prevent the attacks.

Some even think,

Woolsey, R. James is also member of the so-called shadow government,

"to ensure survival of federal rule after catastrophic attack",

01.Mar.2002 the existence of the so-called shadow government was confirmed by Bush.

But what are the goals of this shadow government? Did Woolsey have personal interest in letting the attacks happen on purpose?

Woolsey has a long experience with the US government.

Woolsey is a close friend of Richard Armitage + Richard Perle + Paul Wolfowitz, a group often called the “Wolfowitz Cabal” under Reagan + Bush I. Woolsey probably has a lot of conflicts of interest.

00.000.1993-00.000.1995 Woolsey, R. James was the director of Central Intelligence CIA.

00.000.1989-00.000.1991 Woolsey, R. James served as an ambassador + USA representative to the Negotiation on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE), Vienna .

00.000.1977-00.000.1979 Woolsey, R. James served as the undersecretary of the Navy +

00.000.1970-00.000.1973 Woolsey, R. James was general counsel to the US Senate Committee on Armed Services from.

In addition,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James was an advisor to the US delegation for the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT I) in Helsinki + Vienna,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James was an analyst with the Office of the Secretary of Defense and National Security Council staff +

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James was a captain in the US Army.

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James was a delegate at large at the US-Soviet Strategic Arms Reduction Talks (START) +

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James was a delegate at large at the US-Soviet Space Arms Talks (NST).

In the private sector,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of Martin Marietta,

as well as

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of British Aerospace,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of Fairchild Industries,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of Titan Corporation,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of USF&G,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of Sun Healthcare Group Inc.,

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James served as director of Yurie Systems Inc. +

00.000.19---00.000.19-- Woolsey, R. James has served as director of DynCorp, where ENRON executive Herbert S. "Pug" Winokur is on the board as well.

DynCorp, according to Alex Cockburn + Jeff St. Clair, is the USA s 22. largest defense contractor

00.000.1998 -with US Government contract revenues of $475 million.

DynCorp, which currently has between 300-600 contracted employees in Colombia, is performing functions like crop eradication (using defoliants – similar to those used in Vietnam), to sophisticated aerial reconnaissance, to combat advisory roles training military + possibly even paramilitary forces.

As noted by highly credible writers such as Peter Dale Scott, Col. Fletcher Prouty + even the legendary "retired" CIA executive Ted Shackley in his book The Third Option, the use of private corporations, whether directly owned by CIA as "proprietaries" or not, is a common practice for the extension of US military and diplomatic power.

James Woolsey, who now describes himself as a "private citizen," is the man who was very early on entrusted with investigating Iraqi involvement in the September 11 attacks and anthrax outbreaks.

Woolsey also perpetuated the incompetence theory of the Sep. 11th attacks. Does that implicate him as well? That seems very unrealistic.

Woolsey is a master strategist.

It is well known that Woolsey wanted a war against the Taliban for years, but was even more interested in a war against Iraq.

00.Oct.2001 The Iraqi National Congress, the exiled group that opposes Saddam Hussein, said that it held meetings in London with Mr Woolsey.

Administration sources have said Woolsey s trip was funded + approved by Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy Defense secretary.

But Woolsey made no comment about the exact nature of his brief.

Woolsey told The Telegraph: "I was in London + that's it."

Woolsey also supported the story, that Mohammad Atta met an Iraqi diplomat in Prague.

This was obviously based on rigged information.

However Woolsey said, "I doubt very seriously if this was simply a social relationship or that they liked to drink Czech beer together." +

Woolsey expressed this in Pentagon's Top Advisor Richard Perle’s paper Daily Telegraph, owned by Perle’s company Hollinger Inc.

Woolsey participated also in various Terror Scenario war games.

22.Jan.2000 Woolsey participated in a CFR Project run as a war-game simulation at its Manhattan headquarters.

22.Jan.2000 For the simulation, the CFR enlisted 75 people, including bankers, former Treasury Secretaries + former State Department officials.

22.Jan.2000 Participants were divided into four teams, sent into four rooms, with the ability to communicate with each other + with a command headquarters through the computers.

00.May 2000 Woolsey participated in a bioterrorism exercise at Andrews Air Force Base.

00.May 2000 Woolsey played the CIA director.

00.May 2000 This event was organised by the Hopkins Center + in collaboration with the

ANSER Institute for Homeland Defense + the

Center for Strategic and International Studies +

the Oklahoma Memorial Institute for the Study of Terrorism.

12.Jul.200-13.Jul.2000 Woolsey was part of yet another CFR "conference" called "The Next Financial Crisis: Warning Signs, Damage Control and Impact"

12.Jul.200-13.Jul.2000 This was played out before a high-powered audience of 250 people, comprised largely of bankers + investors + corporation officials + policymakers, mostly from the USA, but also from Europe + revolved around the possibility that the US stock market + potentially the world financial system would undergo a melt down.

Woolsey knew also about the Bio Terror Scenarios organized by Dr. Inglesby (Johns Hopkins Institute)

almost simultaneously,

15.Jun.2000-16.Jun.2000 in St. Louis - Bio Terror Scenarios organized by Dr. Inglesby (Johns Hopkins Institute) +

26.Jun.2000-27.Jun.2000 Atlanta -Bio Terror Scenarios organized by Dr. Inglesby (Johns Hopkins Institute)

22.Jun.2001-23.Jun.2001 Woolsey also particpated in the biggest Terror Scenario, called Dark Winter, once again developed by Dr. Inglesby ( Johns Hopkins Institute ),

22.Jun.2001-23.Jun.2001 in the biggest Terror Scenario, called Dark Winter Woolsey "played" the director of the FBI.

00.000.19—11.Sep.2001 Woolsey knew exactly, what the USAcould expect very soon.

Woolsey still had enough contacts at the CIA.

But maybe it was a conflict of interest which stopped Woolsey from doing anything.
Entreprises de paix

Le profil de ces entreprises est varié.

Plusieurs petites compagnies aériennes figurent dans la liste des sociétés militaires privées candidates à des contrats de maintien de la paix :

c'est le cas d' Air Scan + d' International Charter Incorporated + d' Eagle Aviation Services and Technologies, etc.

Elles côtoient des sociétés spécialisées dans le déminage humanitaire

(comme DSL-ArmorGroup + Ronco + Greenfield Consultants + Specialist Gurkha Services) +

de très grosses entreprises de génie civil

(Pacific Architects and Engineers + ITT + Combat Support Associates + Kellog, Brown and Root).

Ces entreprises sont les poids lourds d'un nouveau mercenariat.

Elles sont parvenues à une certaine respectabilité d'abord en s'organisant en PME spécialisées dans les services militaires, puis en rejoignant le giron de grands groupes industriels.

C'est le cas de MPRI (racheté par L3 Communication),

de Crucible (par Kroll),

de DSL (par ArmorGroup),

de DynCorp (par Computer Science Corporation),

de Vinnell (par Northrop Grumman),

de Betac (par ACSDefense),

de Titan (par Lockheed Martin)

ou encore de Wackenhut (par les Danois de Group 4 Falck).

En fait, ces multinationales, toutes cotées en Bourse, se dotent, grâce à de telles acquisitions, d'un véritable " bras armé ".

Elles peuvent, dès lors, répondre à l'ensemble des appels d'offres lancés par les ministères de la Défense ou de l'Intérieur USA, UK ou encore sud-africain.

Ces administrations, adeptes de l'" outsourcing ", externalisent et privatisent, à grande échelle, des missions qui sont traditionnellement du ressort des forces armées nationales.

00.000.1994-00.000.2002 -Selon les chiffres du Pentagon repris par le Center for Public Integrity, le ministère de la Défense aurait passé plus de 3000 contrats avec des SMP, pour une valeur totale de 300 milliards de $$.

Ces contrats concernent aussi bien la gestion du patrimoine immobilier (70 000 logements militaires sont ainsi en phase de privatisation aux USA), que les transmissions, la protection des sites sensibles

(22 bases de l'armée de terre américaine sont déjà protégées par des sociétés privées),

la formation des armées étrangères, la sécurisation des zones minières et pétrolières, le soutien aux troupes en opérations extérieures, voire la conduite d'opérations de combat...

Des missions que l'ONU confie toujours, avec plus ou moins de célérité et de bonheur, aux Casques bleus et sur lesquelles lorgnent désormais ces grands groupes privés.

L'humanitaire et le maintien de la paix, voire son imposition, constituent en effet des marchés prometteurs.

D'une part, parce que la pacification des conflits régionaux, si souhaitable qu'elle soit, n'est pas pour demain ; d'autre part, parce que les sommes en jeu sont importantes.

Même si elle se révèle souvent un payeur tardif, l'ONU ne lésine généralement pas sur les moyens et les fonds à engager.

Ce qui ne peut que conforter les ambitions des sociétés militaires privées qui se targuent de faire mieux que les Casques bleus... et pour moins cher.

Ainsi, dans le cadre du Congo-Kinshasa, l'IPOA chiffre à 200 millions de $$ le coût d'un contrat confié à des privés, soit " cinq fois moins que celui d'une opération onusienne ".

Par ailleurs, les nouveaux mercenaires, ces soldats privés qui travaillent pour des prestataires de services militaires, sont toujours en quête de reconnaissance, de crédibilité et de respectabilité.

Au prix de manipulations sémantiques, ils tentent de convaincre l'opinion publique de l'existence d'un subtil distinguo entre, d'une part, les " mercenaires " (des soldats de fortune sans éthique) ou

les "volontaires étrangers" (c'est ainsi qu'ils appellent les légionnaires français et les Gurkhas britanniques) et,

d'autre part, les employés des SMP : c'est, en effet, à ces derniers que certains commentateurs anglo-saxons attribuent le plus haut degré de professionnalisme et la plus grande légitimité.

Répétons-le : travailler pour de grands organismes internationaux ou pour des ONG et s'imposer dans la niche de l'humanitaire constituerait, pour les SMP, une reconnaissance indiscutable.

I think we're going to see a lot of the most dehumanized being ready recruits for right wing death squads, if the deal goes down back here...

WWI. - -after- - In Germany, demobilized vets were organized by the Generalstab der Wehrmacht – Schwarze Wehrmacht- general staff into "freikorps" - paramilitary units that helped put down communist insurrections [antibolschewistische Front] in Berlin + Bavaria + , + that specialized in the elimination of left-wing leaders.

Death squads, in other words.

--> STADTLER, Eduard

WWI. - -after - - Later – BEFORE END OF WWI.- freikorp members became the original hard core of the Nazi SA.

CNBC is now also showing the pics on their evening news - military command is 'considering' action against the general in charge of the prison.

So it looks like the cover up is pretty far along.

I wonder if the general will take her lumps - confident the system will make her whole somewhere down the line - or demand a court martial.

Personally, I think its obvious from looking at that picture at the top of he post that this isn't some kind of "isolated abuse."

This is policy - probably adopted on the advice of Centcom 's Mossad or Shin Bet advisors.

00.000..2003 -last summer-Sy Hersh was writing about this. Posted by: Billmon

Julian Borger has evidence linking this abuse to the role of "private contractors" in Iraq:

The scandal has also brought to light the growing and largely unregulated role of private contractors in the interrogation of detainees. ...

A military report into the Abu Ghraib case - parts of which were made available to the Guardian - makes it clear that private contractors were supervising interrogations in the prison ...

One civilian contractor was accused of raping a young, male prisoner but has not been charged because military law has no jurisdiction over him. [emphasis added] ...

The military investigation names two US contractors, CACI International Inc and the Titan Corporation, for their involvement in Abu Ghraib. Posted by: medieval oya at 29.Apr.2004 10:29 PM

Put me in the category of folks who think Kate and Billmon were talking past each other.

On Hiroshima and Nagasaki, those two incidents of mass murder directed at civilians actually did have a context - I'd condemn a great many other American actions more harshly than them, though I'd still condemn those two as well.

For instance, read what historian Bruce Cumings says about the Korean War in his latest book on North Korea - the US probably killed more civilians through bombing in Korea than it did in WWII.,

but there's probably not one American in a hundred who knows about it.

And unlike Hiroshima, you can't even begin to make a case for it.

As for My Lai, people miss the point about Vietnam.

Read Jonathan Schell's book "The Military Half" about US behavior in Quang Ngai or read (in various places) about Operation Speedy Express in the Mekong Delta.

American forces bombed or shelled villages with slight or no provocation at all and this is what caused most of the civilian casualties.

Given the attitude of the high command, you'd expect the low level grunts to occasionally shoot up a village.

But then we hear about how "exceptional" that was--normally Americans kill innocent people in a more civilized fashion. Posted by: Donald Johnson at 29.Apr.2004 10:30 PM

Según el general Oswald Le Winter, antiguo oficial encargado del Gladio en el seno de la CIA,

confesó que los protocolos adicionales del Tratado del Atlántico Norte estipulaba que los Estados [países] miembros renunciaban en perseguir en justicia las actividades y atentados que sus miembros realizasen.

Dichos miembros eran los que componían los grupos de extrema derecha fascistas utilizados por los servicios de la organización.

Estos documentos habrían sido firmados por Robert Schuman en nombre de la Francia, cuando este era presidente del Concejo.

En los USA, este servicio secreto al principio recibió el nombre de Buró para la Coordinación Política (OPC).

Su primer director fue Frank G. Wisner [ 20 ].

Este personaje fue escogido por el Secretario de Estado, el general George Marshall en una lista que contenía seis nombres y que fue redactada [ 21 ] por su consejero George F. Keenan, el cual mantenía una estrecha relación con Allan Dulles.

Irving Brown, representante del sindicato AFL-CIO en París y Norris Chapman, diplomático con puesto en París hacían parte de la lista.

William Colby describe esa época de la siguiente manera: « Desbordando de dinamismo y de inteligencia, Wisner no ahorro sus energías y en algunos meses, con la ayuda de sus antiguos colegas del OSS, puso en funcionamiento, en el mundo entero, una nueva generación de "Templarios", encargados de defender la libertad occidental contra el oscurantismo comunista...y la guerra».

A comienzos de los años cincuenta, el general Walter B. Smith, recientemente nombrado director de la CIA, no estaba de acuerdo que el Buró permanezca en su jurisdicción solamente de manera administrativa.

Smith quería que este se subordinara a su autoridad completamente. Logró obtener la fusión con la Dirección de la Planificación de la Agencia en 00.Aug.1952 .

Las autoridades estadounidenses admitieron en esa ocasión que la OPC había existido y pretendieron que dicho organismo acababa de ser disuelto.

No podían decir y reconocer otra cosa, ya que la fusión y las actividades de la ex OPC se mantenían ilegales.

El general Smith contó con el apoyo de Allan Dulles, antiguo jefe del OSS y hermano del Secretario de Estado John F. Dulles.

00.000.1946 -el presidente Harry S. Truman se consagra a la reconversión de la economía y de las instituciones de guerra de los USA.

Tomando en cuenta las dificultades que su país encontró durante la WWII., Truman decide de dotar a los USA de una industria de guerra y de servicios secretos permanentes.

Esta decisión puede ser considerada como legitima cuando se demostró la improvisación en que se hallaba el país durante la guerra.

Esta decisión toma en cuenta la enorme dificultad de reconvertir la gran maquinaria bélica en una economía de paz.

Truman tuvo que resistir a fuertes presiones políticas viniendo de todos lados, para poder ratificar su decisión.

Según las preconizaciones del general William J. Donovan, director del OSS, la nueva Agencia Central de Inteligencia (CIA) comenzaría a sustituir parcialmente y poco a poco los servicios de la Marina, del Ejército de tierra y de la Secretaria de Estado. Su función no se resumiría en recoger información, sino que debía estar capacitada para actuar en el extranjero, violando así la soberanía de los Estados.

Si Truman estaba de acuerdo con la primera función de la CIA, no lo estaba con la segunda.

00.000.1947 -Oficialmente, el National Security Act, fue validado por el Congreso , perennizando en tiempos de paz un dispositivo militar general que

incluye una agencia de espionaje exterior, la CIA es desprovista de toda competencia para realizar «operaciones especiales».

La Organización Gehlen en Alemania y la red stay-behind en toda Europa no habrían tenido en adelante una justificación para continuar su existencia.

De esta manera debieron ser desmanteladas.

Sin embargo, a la ocasión de los debates sobre las condiciones de ocupación de la Alemania vencida,

la conferencia de ministros de Relaciones Exteriores en Moscú demostró que era casi imposible a los demás países del mundo, no tomar posición, obligándolos de esta manera a ubicarse geopolíticamente en el conflicto USA-URSS.

El primer país en escoger su «campo» fue Francia.

Escogió el campo de los Anglo-Estadounidenses.

Era el comienzo de una guerra no declarada y sin operaciones militares convencionales, la famosa «Guerra Fría».

Dando marcha atrás y de manera ilegal contra lo que fue decidido en el Congreso de USA, Harry S. Truman constituye en secreto un nuevo servicio para conducir operaciones de guerra en tiempos de paz.

La Organización Gehlen y la red de stay-behind son los que van a aportar los fundamentos y cimientos de esta nueva organización secreta.

18.Jun.1948 -del- la National Security Council Directive on Office of Special Projects (NSC 10/2) es La única base jurídica de las operaciones especiales .

Este documento clasificado «top secret» fue dado a conocer públicamente solamente 50 años más tarde [ 16 ].

Esta directiva estipulaba que las operaciones de la red debían ser planificadas y conducidas bajo la autoridad de un Buró administrativo adjunto a la CIA y sólo en tiempos de guerra y

en coordinación con el Estado Mayor del Ejército.

El jefe de este Buró sería nombrado por el Secretario de Estado, reconocido a su vez por el director de la CIA y confirmado en el puesto por el Concejo Nacional de Seguridad.

Inicialmente este Buró disponía de una autonomía completa y no era supeditado a la CIA, a fin que pudiera beneficiar de un financiamiento legal.

En caso de desacuerdo entre el Buró y el director de la CIA, o desacuerdo entre el Secretario de Estado y/o el secretario de la Defensa, el litigio debía ser resuelto únicamente por el Concejo Nacional de Seguridad.

Cada autoridad respectiva debía designar un oficial de enlace reconocido por el Buró, trasmitiéndole a esta persona toda la información necesaria a fin de preservar el secreto y la existencia del mismo. La competencia del Buró fue definida así: «Todas las actividades conducidas o apoyadas por el Gobierno [de USA] contra los Estados [países] o grupos hostiles, o los apoyos de Estados [países] o grupos amigos, deben ser planificados y ejecutados de manera que la responsabilidad de ningún Gobierno [actual y posteriores de los USA] pueda aparecer a las personas ajenas y no autorizadas, y si ellas son descubiertas, el Gobierno de los USA pueda denegar de manera fehaciente toda responsabilidad. Precisamente, tales operaciones están involucradas en la actividad secreta y en relación con la propaganda;

la guerra económica, la acción preventiva directa, que incluye el sabotaje, el anti-sabotaje, las medidas de destrucción y de infiltración; la subversión de Estados [países] hostiles, donde se incluye la asistencia a los movimientos de resistencia, a las guerrillas locales y a los grupos de liberación en el exilio; el apoyo a los elementos anticomunistas locales que se encuentren en los países amenazados del mundo libre.

Estas operaciones no toman en cuenta los conflictos armados conducidos por las fuerzas armadas militares reconocidas, las del espionaje y el contraespionaje, la cobertura y el engaño llevadas por las operaciones militares».

La organización interna de la red a sido definida en un memorando secreto, redactado por el director principal del Buró y a la atención del director de la CIA [ 17 ].

Está dividido en cinco grupos funcionales:
  el Grupo de guerra psicológica (prensa, radio, rumores, etc.)
  el Grupo de guerra política (ayuda a la resistencia en los países comunistas, ayuda a los movimientos en el exilio, ayuda a los movimientos anticomunistas en los países libres, estímulo e incitación a los tránsfugas);
  el Grupo de guerra económica (impedimento y trabas en la adquisición de materiales y de provisiones, manipulación de los mercados, mercado negro, especulación sobre las monedas, falsificación de monedas, etc.);
  el Grupo de acción directa preventiva (ayuda a las guerrillas, sabotaje, contra sabotaje, destrucción, infiltración, agentes dobles, stay-behind),
  el Grupo « diversos ».

Para Truman y su equipo, la nueva guerra no es de tipo convencional y no la opone los USA a la URSS, es de naturaleza política, económica, psicológica y la enfrenta el Occidente al Comunismo.

Los intereses de los USA se convierten en la defensa de los valores de sus «padres fundadores» [ 18 ], dándole así no una dimensión religiosa, sino mística a la Guerra Fría.

Todos los medios debían ser movilizados y aplicados para que los Occidentales se reconozcan en el campo estadounidense, identificándose de esta manera al « mundo libre » y preparándose a sacrificarse por él.

El stay-behind fue y es una arma con un objetivo bien claro en esta cruzada.

La expresión « stay-behind » fue utilizada por los servicios de espionaje británicos para designar a sus agentes secretos que se quedaron detrás de las líneas enemigas en el frente de guerra. Tenían por misión organizar una resistencia local, recibían ayuda y suministros gracias a los aviones que lanzaban en paracaídas el material, armas, aparatos de comunicación y de transmisión para tales fines. Durante la Guerra Fría, la idea de una ocupación soviética en Europa occidental favoreció la preparación logística de tal operativo.

La idea era también reclutar una red similar pero a escala atlántica, con ayuda de anticomunistas acostumbrados a la acción secreta.

A parte de los agentes nazis que fueron enrolados y enviados por la OSS, el Carmel Offie continuó reclutando personal en los medios de extrema derecha para apoyar la estructura estadounidense.

Respecto a la facción ultramontana [19 ] de los católicos, los anglo-americanos llevaron a cabo un acuerdo global con la Santa Sede por intermedio del cardenal Francis Spellman.

Drei Kilometer unter dem Eis Grönlands haben Forscher Mikroben entdeckt, die zum Teil mehr als 100.000 Jahre alt sind.

Die Bakterien produzieren Methan - was darauf hindeutet, dass ähnliche Lebensformen noch heute auf dem Mars existieren könnten.
Die Wissenschaftler um Buford Price von der University of California schätzen das Alter der Bakterienkolonie auf mehr als 100.000 Jahre.

Sie gehen davon aus, dass die Mikroben sich in der unwirtlichen Umgebung nur mühsam am Leben erhalten. Anstatt ihre Gemeinschaft zu vergrößern, müssen sie sich damit begnügen, Erbgutschäden zu reparieren.

Just the kind of guy you want to give a lot of power to.

We mentioned a few days ago a woman named Elizabeth Reyes who was an attorney in the elections division of the Texas Secretary of state.

Elizabeth Reyes who was an attorney in the elections division of the Texas Secretary of state answered a press question about a law that Karl Rove had broken - though she wasn't told that Rove was the person involved.

Elizabeth Reyes who was an attorney in the elections division of the Texas Secretary of state was immediately fired.

Now it turns out that Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams decided to fire Elizabeth Reyes who was an attorney in the elections division of the Texas Secretary of state

after getting a call from Rove himself.

But for the morons among us, Williams would like to make clear that Rove's call had nothing to do with it.

00.000.2003 A Defense Department directive kept CIFA from engaging in law enforcement activities such as "the investigation, apprehension, or detention of individuals suspected or convicted of criminal offenses against the laws of the USA."

Perhaps the prime illustration of the Pentagon's intelligence growth is CIFA, which remains one of its least publicized intelligence agencies. Neither the size of its staff, said to be more than 1,000, nor its budget is public, said Conway, the Pentagon spokesman. The CIFA brochure says the agency's mission is to "transform" the way counterintelligence is done "fully utilizing 21st century tools and resources."

One CIFA activity, threat assessments, involves using "leading edge information technologies and data harvesting," according to a February 2004 Pentagon budget document. This involves "exploiting commercial data" with the help of outside contractors including White Oak Technologies Inc. of Silver Spring + MZM Inc., a Washington-based research organization, according to the Pentagon document.

For CIFA, counterintelligence involves not just collecting data but also "conducting activities to protect DoD and the nation against espionage, other intelligence activities, sabotage, assassinations + terrorist activities," its brochure states.

"In the age of terrorism," Conway said, "the US military and its facilities are targets + we have to be prepared within our authorities to defend them before something happens."

UC has joined Bechtel National + other industrial partners in a bid to retain its contract to run Los Alamos, in a competition against a consortium consisting of Lockheed-Martin, the University of Texas, several New Mexico universities + various industrial partners. --> CARLYLE
Makhijani says he isn't taking sides in the competition but that he would prefer the weapons labs be run by industrial contractors rather than universities.

The reason, he said, is that university connections to the weapons labs tend to lead to restraints on free inquiry and speech within the universities.
The report concludes that at least 661 pounds of plutonium generated at the lab over the last half-century is not accounted for.

The atomic bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, 00.000.1945 contained about 13 pounds of plutonium.
"The security implications . . . are extremely serious, since less than 2 percent of the lowest unaccounted-for plutonium is enough to make one nuclear bomb," the report said.
The problem of plutonium accounting began worrying lab critics in the mid-1990s, when Energy Department officials released lab records as part of the Clinton administration's openness initiative.
Critics found they had trouble determining exactly what the lab was doing with the plutonium waste that is generated during the manufacture of spherical plutonium "pits," the fissile triggers of nuclear bombs.
Makhijani said he and colleagues from two other activist groups hoped the problem would be resolved in August 2004, when they sent a letter of complaint to then-Los Alamos Director G. Peter Nanos. Nanos was trying to reform lab operations after highly publicized scandals over UC management of Los Alamos.
Nanos and lab officials did not respond, though + nine months later Nanos left for a different job. Makhijani said he and associates had decided to make their report public to dramatize federal officials' failure to resolve the puzzle of the missing plutonium.

Plutonium Could Be Missing From Los Alamos
Date: Monday, December 05 @ 07:25:25 EST
Topic: National
Enough plutonium to make dozens of nuclear bombs hasn't been accounted for at the UC-run Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and may be missing, an activist group says in a new report.
There is no evidence that the weapons-grade plutonium has been stolen or diverted for illegal purposes, the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research said. However, the amount of unaccounted-for plutonium -- more than 600 pounds + possibly several times that -- is so great that it raises "a vast security issue," the group said in a report to be made public today.
The institute, which is based in Takoma Park, Md., says it compared data from five publicly available reports and documents issued by the US Energy Department and Los Alamos from 1996 to 2004 and found inconsistencies in them. It says the records aren't clear on what the lab did with the plutonium, a byproduct of nuclear bomb research at Los Alamos.
A spokesman for UC, which manages the national laboratories at Los Alamos and Livermore for the Energy Department, did not address the report's specifics but said the New Mexico lab tracks nuclear material "to a minute quantity."

As I pointed out in the Introduction, The 11.Sep.2001 Commission Report endorses the official conspiracy theory,

according to which the attacks of 11.Sep.2001 were carried out solely by al-Qaeda, under the direction of Osama bin Laden.

I am looking at this report from the perspective of the alternative conspiracy theory, according to which officials of the US government were involved.

Although the 11.Sep.2001 Commission did not mention this alternative hypothesis, it was clearly seeking to undermine its plausibility.

One way to do this would be to show that, contrary to those who hold this hypothesis, the Bush administration did not have any interests or plans that could have provided a sufficient motive for arranging or at least allowing such murderous attacks on its own citizens.

The 11.Sep.2001 Commission did not do this directly, by explicitly addressing the motives alleged by those who endorse the alternative hypothesis.

But it did not do it indirectly, by portraying the Bush administration + the US government more generally, as devoid of motives in question.

The Kean-Zelikow Commission, however, could provide this portrayal only by means of numerous omissions and distortions.

Besides omitting the Bush administration's reference to the 11.Sep.2001 attacks as "opportunities," it omitted any discussion of the US Space Command, with its mission to solidify global dominance + of the PNAC document, with its suggestion that a new Pearl Harbor would be helpful.

11.Sep.2001 Commission omitted historical facts showing that the Bush administration had plans to attack both Afghanistan + Iraq before 11.Sep.2001 so that the attacks served as a pretext rather than a cause.

And the 11.Sep.2001 Commission distorted US motives in those attacks, portraying US leaders as interested only in self-defense, human rights + peace, not oil, bases + geopolitical primacy. link

For example, two California ID cards of Flight 77 passenger, Susanne Calley, were miraculously uncovered in the Pentagon wreckage by a first responder, Capt. Jim Ingledue of the Virginia Beach Fire Department two days after 11.Sep.2001.

Although Capt. Ingledue believes the official account of 11.Sep.2001, he admitted it was "very strange and highly unusual" to find unblemished paper-thin evidence in a meltdown like the Pentagon.

And even more miraculously than Calley's ID's a year after 11.Sep.2001, four unscathed credit cards were returned to the parents of Waleed Iskandar, a suspicious Flight 11 passenger also not on the original passenger list but included a year later on unofficial flight lists.

Strangely, in light of the miraculous discoveries, both Iskandar and Calley's loved one's did not question the return or authenticity of the items returned, adding they were in perfect agreement with the government's official version of 11.Sep.2001.

Investigators noted there was no suicide note and the only thing found next to her body was a letter from then New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani inviting her to an upcoming memorial service at Ground Zero to mourn 11.Sep.2001 victims.

After the apparent suicide, several school friends and even family members said Kalashasthi was, of course, devastated by her loss, being married for only a short time, but was determined to move forward and complete her dental studies.

Further, friends pointed out she was devout Hindu who believed in reincarnation, making suicide an even more unlikely choice since a return to earth is inevitable according to Kalashasthi's Hindu beliefs.
Strange Suicide of a Flight 11 Passenger's Wife Raises More Doubt as to What Really Happened on the Four 11.Sep.2001 Flights
Prasanna Kalahasthi, 25, a USC dental student and married to Pendyala Vamsikrishna, a Flight 11 passenger, killed herslf one month after 11.Sep.2001 in her Los Angeles apartment even though friends say she was 'in good spirits and determined to finish dental school.'

General Kevin Byrnes was fired for attempting to prevent the drill from going live. (See
Lehrman/, Szymanski/Arctic Beacon, Jones,Watson/PrisonPlanet, Skolnick/Cloak&Dagger.
Now a Washington Times report, also anonymously-sourced, highlights the flimsy basis on which he was fired -- adultery. Not the Jeff Gannon kind of military adultery popular in the White House; but involvement, while separated from his wife, with a woman in a separate command. It also turns out Rumsfeld tried to chase him out the military three years ago. Looks like he finally found a pretext.
WashTimes August 10 : An official announcement yesterday did not specify why Gen. Kevin P. Byrnes, 52, was removed from his command of all soldier training and doctrine development, but two retired Army officers said it was for having an extramarital affair.

Der leitende Mailänder Staatsanwalt Armando Spataro sagte, die CIA-Aktion sei nicht nur ein "Verbrechen gegen die italienische Souveränität und die Menschenrechte" gewesen. Sie habe zudem die "Antiterror-Bemühungen in Italien und Europa ernsthaft beschädigt". Wäre Omar nicht entführt worden, wäre er nun Angeklagter in einem legalen Verfahren und säße im Gefängnis. Außerdem hätten die Ermittler möglicherweise Komplizen aus seinem Umfeld identifizieren können, sagte Spataro.
Inzwischen hat die Mailänder Justiz 22 Haftbefehle gegen CIA-Mitarbeiter in dem Fall erlassen. Die italienischen Ermittler vermuten, dass der CIA-Chef in Rom die Aktion geleitet hat. Koordiniert worden sei die Entführung von Mitarbeitern der US-Botschaft. Schwer beschuldigt wird außerdem der CIA-Chef im Mailand, Robert Seldon Lady. Gegen ihn ist ebenfalls ein Haftbefehl erlassen worden.
Die Bemühungen der italienischen Staatsanwaltschaft werden jedoch von der Berlusconi-Regierung torpediert. Auslieferungsgesuche an die USA zur Überstellung verdächtiger CIA-Mitarbeitern nach Italien seien von Justizminister Roberto Castelli bisher nicht genehmigt worden, berichtet die "Washington Post".
Mailand - Im März 2003 erhielt die Antiterror-Abteilung der italienischen Polizei eine als dringlich eingestufte Mitteilung von der CIA über den ägyptischen Imam Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, genannt Abu Omar, der einige Wochen zuvor in Mailand auf mysteriöse Weise verschwunden war.
Die US-Sicherheitsleute teilten mit, sie wüssten über den Aufenthaltsort des Vermissten Bescheid, Abu Omar sei auf den Balkan geflüchtet. Nun meldet die "Washington Post", diese Information des amerikanischen Geheimdienstes sei falsch gewesen. Die CIA habe die italienischen Behörden bewusst in die Irre geführt.
Die vorsätzliche Lüge sollte die Italiener auf eine falsche Fährte locken und die Entführung Abu Omars durch Agenten aus Langley kaschieren. Die Strategie sei mehr als ein Jahr lang aufgegangen, berichtete das Blatt unter Berufung auf italienische Justizdokumente und Gespräche mit Ermittlern.
Erst Monate nach dem Verschwinden Abu Omars gelang es den italienischen Ermittlern die Geschichte seines Abgangs zu rekonstruieren. Am 17. Februar 2003 war er entführt und von der US-Luftwaffenbasis Aviano nach Ägypten ausgeflogen worden. Dort soll der 42-Jährige gefoltert worden sein. In abgehörten Anrufen an Bekannte in Italien berichtete er vom Stromschlägen und Kälteschocks. Zurzeit befindet sich der Ägypter in dem Land unter Hausarrest.
Während seines Aufenthalts in Italien war er auch von den italienischen Behörden beobachtet worden. Sie sammelten Belastungsmaterial gegen ihn, weil er ihnen als Mitglied der extremistischen Organisation Jemaah Islamiah galt.

Nach Meinung des Historikers Parks Stephenson, der am gestrigen Montag ebenfalls an der Konferenz in Woods Hole teilgenommen hat, ist nun eine neue Rekonstruktion der "Titanic"-Katastrophe fällig. "Das Auseinanderbrechen und das Sinken der 'Titanic' wurden niemals präzise dargestellt", sagte er.
Robert Ballard, der das Wrack 1985 rund 600 Kilometer südöstlich von Neufundland in einer Tiefe von 3800 Metern entdeckt hat, kommentierte die neuen Funde mit triefendem Sarkasmus. "Sie haben ein Fragment entdeckt. Eine wirklich tolle Sache", sagte er der Nachrichtenagentur AP. "Bin ich beeindruckt? Nein. Wenn man dort hinunter taucht, sieht man überall etwas herumliegen." Ballard, der mit dem "Titanic"-Fund ein Vermögen verdient haben dürfte, scheint mittlerweile das Interesse an dem Wrack verloren zu haben. "Sie hat einen Eisberg gerammt und ist gesunken. Kommt endlich darüber hinweg."

How politics corrupts intelligence -By Scott Ritter
The politicization of the intelligence community allows the process of fixing intelligence around policy to become pervasive + the increasingly polarized political climate in America prevents any real checks and balances through effective oversight, leaving Americans at the mercy of politicians who have placed partisan politics above the common good.

Zu viele alte Bekannte aus der Schröder-Zeit sitzen auch bei Angela Merkel an wichtigen Positionen: Frank-Walter Steinmeier, einst Schröders mächtiger Mann im Kanzleramt und intimer Kenner aller Vorgänge, ist nun Außenminister. August Hanning, unter Rot-Grün Chef des gut informierten Auslandsgeheimdienstes BND, ist nun Staatssekretär im Innenministerium. Keiner dieser Beteiligten kann ernsthaft Überraschung oder gar Empörung über die Maßnahmen der CIA vorgaukeln. Sie kennen die Details seit Jahren zu gut. Auch wenn es für Merkel bitter ist, holt sie die Vergangenheit der rot-grünen Vorgänger bei den Beziehungen zu den USA schneller ein, als ihr lieb sein kann. Wenigstens aber kann man deshalb davon ausgehen, dass das Gespräch im Kanzleramt trotz allen Getöses in Wirklichkeit sehr nett werden kann. Mit Ehrlichkeit hat das indes wenig zu tun.
Amtshilfe für die CIA
Noch aktiver halfen die deutschen Behörden den Amerikanern im Fall von zwei Jemeniten, welche die CIA im Jahr 2003 über einen verdeckten Informanten nach Frankfurt lockte. In einem dortigen Hotel half das Bundeskriminalamt beim Verwanzen der Räume und hinterher auch bei der Festnahme. Schon zu Beginn der verdeckten CIA-Aktion gab es Zweifel an den Beweisen gegen die beiden Männer, die angeblich 20 Millionen Dollar für den bewaffneten Kampf spenden wollten. Doch Deutschland störten die Zweifel nicht. Brav machten die deutschen Behörden mit und überstellten die beiden Männer umgehend an die USA. Auf kritische Nachfragen wurde mit dem routinierten Schweigen reagiert, das die USA sehr schätzten.

Darf sich Deutschland an illegal agierenden Behörden eines alliierten Staates annähern, um an für die Behörden wichtige Informationen zu gelangen? Darf eine deutsche Regierung aus außenpolitischem Kalkül über schwerwiegende Menschenrechtsverletzungen schweigen? Öffentlich herrscht zu diesen Fragen das altbekannte Schweigen.
Als Bonus gab es Fakten
Ähnlich diskret verhielt sich die Bundesregierung im Fall eines weiteren Deutschen, dem Deutsch-Syrer
Mohammed Haydar Zammar.

11.Sep.2001 -Seit dem- wussten die deutschen Behörden, dass Zammar an der Rekrutierung der Todes-Piloten beteiligt war.

Nur eben beweisen konnte man ihm nichts.

00.000.2001 -Ende- Als Zammar schließlich nach Marokko reiste, verschwand Zammar unter dubiosen Umständen +

Zammar wurde von der CIA nach Syrien verschleppt +

Zammar wurde in Syrien unter landesüblichen Umständen verhört.

Im Klartext bedeuten diese Umstände, dass rechtsstaatliche Konventionen dort keine Rolle spielen.

In Deutschland wusste man zumindest bei den Geheimdiensten recht genau um den Vorgang. Dass die deutsche Regierung informiert war, lässt sich nicht beweisen, doch muss man es vermuten.
Doch die Deutschen hatten ihre ganz eigenen Interessen. Sie wollten auch wissen, was Zammar ausgesagt hatte, also bemühte man sich um Details. Am Ende vereinbarte man mit den Syrern einen schmutzigen Deal. Wie der SPIEGEL kürzlich aufdeckte, versprachen hohe deutsche Regierungsbeamte bei einem Geheimtreffen im Kanzleramt der syrischen Seite, juristische Anklagen gegen zwei mutmaßliche syrische Agenten zurückzuziehen, wenn deutsche Ermittler dafür Mohammed Haydar Zammar vernehmen dürften. Die Syrer ließen sich auf den Kuhhandel ein. Schon kurz darauf reiste im November 2002 eine Delegation von deutschen Beamten nach Damaskus, verhörte Zammar und bekam einige interessante Details fürs Archiv der Terror-Ermittler.
Gespielte Überraschung über die Geheim-Gefängnisse

Die großen Zeiten Schröders sind nun vorbei. Doch die Frage der Beteiligung Deutschlands an den Methoden der CIA-Agenten aus Langley holt die Polit-Pensionäre Schröder, aber auch seinen ehemaligen Außenminister Joschka Fischer und vor allem den Ex-Innenminister Otto Schily nun im Altenteil ein. Neue Berichte und die Ergebnisse von intensiven Recherchen der "Washington Post", des SPIEGEL und anderer zeigen, dass weder die ehemalige Regierung noch die neue Truppe von Angela Merkel überrascht gewesen sein dürften, als in den letzten Wochen Berichte über geheime Gefangenentransporte, geheime Gefängnisse und über stabsplanmäßigen Entführungen durch die CIA zu lesen waren. Immer deutlicher wird nun, was Beobachter der Sicherheitsbehörden schon lange vermuteten. Die rot-grüne Bundesregierung war über die Entführungen und geheimen Gefängnisse der Amerikaner sehr früh und detailliert informiert. Nicht nur aus der Zeitung kannten die Mitglieder am Kabinettstisch die schmutzigen Einzelheiten aus George W. Bushs gnadenlosem Kampf gegen den Terror. In einigen Fällen versuchten gar deutsche Ermittler von den Praktiken zu profitieren, indem sie die Gefangenen und ohne jede rechtliche Grundlage Festgehaltenen für Vernehmungen besuchten. Neben der in Deutschland populären Haltung Gerhard Schröders gab es quasi noch die dunkle Seite des Anti-Amerikaners. Dieser schwieg lieber und wurde ab und an dafür belohnt.
Verschlusssachen statt Proteste
Die am Wochenende bekannt gewordenen Details aus dem Fall
Khaled el-Masri beschreiben die ambivalente Haltung der alten Regierung zu den Praktiken der USA beispielhaft. Da wird Innenminister Schily offiziell und stellvertretend für die Bundesregierung im Mai 2004 vom US-Botschafter informiert, dass die USA einen aus ihrer Sicht terrorverdächtigen Deutschen verdeckt festgenommen, entführt und in einen Kerker nach Afghanistan verschleppt haben. Da es aber trotz intensivster Verhöre und der Anwendung aller Methoden der CIA keine Beweise gegen den Mann gebe, wolle man ihn nun möglichst ohne großes Aufsehen zurück in die Freiheit entlassen, berichtet der Botschafter seinem guten Bekannten Schily in dessen Ministerium.
Robles: Dieses Gefängnis stand unter dem Befehl der Nato-Truppen Kfor, der "Kosovo Force". Mich interessierte deshalb damals zunächst, auf welcher juristischen Grundlage es der Kfor erlaubt war, Gefangene außerhalb normaler rechtlicher Verfahren einzusperren. Denn diese Menschen dort waren ja direkt von der Armee verhaftet worden, ohne die Möglichkeit, sich dagegen juristisch zu wehren. Sie hatten keinen Anwalt. Es gab keine Berufungsinstanz. Es gab noch nicht einmal genaue Vorschriften darüber, wie lange die Menschen in Haft gehalten werden durften. Also schrieb ich in meinem Bericht: So geht das nicht mehr: Man muss hier demokratische, rechtsstaatliche Standards einführen. Und das ist inzwischen ja auch passiert.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Wieso hat das damals, im Jahre 2002, kein Aufsehen erregt, sondern erst jetzt?
Robles: Ich habe das alles in meinen Bericht an den Europarat aufgeschrieben. Darüber im Plenum diskutiert wurde zwar nicht, aber immerhin steht es seitdem im Internet. Ich habe schon damals auch öffentlich darüber gesprochen. Aber da gab es wohl nicht dasselbe Interesse wie heute.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Die Amerikaner weisen jede Verantwortung für das Gefangenenlager im Kosovo von sich. Das sei keine CIA-Einrichtung, sondern eine der Kfor-Nato-Truppen. Haben sie Recht?
Robles: Absolut. Und der damalige Kfor-Chef General Marcel Valentin hat mir bei meiner Visite nach Kräften geholfen. Da gab es ja auch keine Geheimnisse zu vertuschen. Jeder wusste Bescheid, wie es im "Camp Bondsteel" zuging.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Auch die Europäer, auch deutsche Stellen kannten also die Verhältnisse dort?
Robles: Ja, gewiss. Man wusste genau, dass dort Menschen unter solchen, völlig unbefriedigenden Bedingungen festgehalten wurden: ohne ausreichende rechtliche Handhabe, ohne rechtsstaatliche Garantien. Nichts davon war geheim.

Robles: Im Auftrag des Europarates bereiste ich damals den Kosovo, um einen Bericht zu schreiben, ob und wie die Menschenrechte dort respektiert würden. So habe ich viele Gefangenenlager gesehen, auch "Camp Bondsteel". Und dort sah ich tatsächlich Gefangene in einer Situation, die der, die man von Fotos aus Guantanamo kannte, absolut ähnlich war.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Geht es etwas präziser?


Ohne juristisches Verfahren wurden in einem Militärcamp im Kosovo Menschen monatelang weggesperrt. Zustände wie in Guantanamo habe er gesehen, berichtet der Menschenrechtsbeauftragte des Europarates, Alvaro Gil Robles, im Interview mit SPIEGEL ONLINE. Auch die Deutschen wussten davon.

SPIEGEL ONLINE: Herr Alvaro Gil Robles, Sie haben das Kriegsgefängnis "Camp Bondsteel" im Kosovo im September 2002 besichtigt. Warum waren Sie dort? Was haben Sie gesehen?
Robles: "So geht das nicht, man muss das ändern"
Acht der 33 Patienten waren in den drei Monaten zuvor nicht mit Antibiotika behandelt worden,
schreiben die Forscher um Esther Chernak im "Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report" der CDC. Sieben hätten sich vermutlich bei anderen Menschen mit Durchfallerkrankungen angesteckt. Das zeige, dass das Bakterium durch Mutation ansteckender geworden sei.
Viele Mediziner sehen in der zunehmenden Resistenz sogenannter Krankenhauskeime gegen Antibiotika eine der größten Gesundheitsgefahren der Zukunft. "Ich will niemanden vor einer Antibiotika-Behandlung abschrecken", sagte Clifford McDonald, Hauptautor einer der Studien im "New England Journal of Medicine". Die neuen Erkenntnisse seien aber besorgniserregend. "Wir müssen darauf reagieren", betonte der Mediziner. "Uns sollte klar werden, dass das Risiko von Antibiotika-Behandlungen steigt."
Laut der
zweiten Untersuchung ist ein besonders ansteckender Stamm des Bakteriums in den USA aufgetaucht, der gegen bestimmte Antibiotika, sogenannte Fluorochinolone, resistent ist. Zu den Symptomen einer Infektion mit Clostridium difficile gehören schwerer Durchfall und Darmkrämpfe. Insbesondere bei älteren Menschen kann die Erkrankung zum Tod führen.
Das Bakterium namens Clostridium difficile - benannt nach seiner schwierigen Auffindbarkeit - ist bereits seit längerem als Gefahr in Krankenhäusern bekannt. Rund drei Prozent aller Gesunden und 20 bis 40 Prozent der Krankenhauspatienten tragen es in sich, wie das "Deutsche Ärzteblatt" berichtet. Meist ist das Darmbakterium ungefährlich - es sei denn, man wird wegen einer anderen Infektion mit Antibiotika behandelt. Während andere Bakterien im Darm absterben, kann es zu einer explosiven Vermehrung des resistenten Clostridium difficile kommen.
Das "New England Journal of Medicine" veröffentlicht in seiner aktuellen Ausgabe gleich zwei Studien und einen Kommentar zu dem Thema.
Eine der Studien besagt, dass allein im vergangenen Jahr in zwölf kanadischen Krankenhäusern 117 von 1703 Patienten mit Clostridium difficile an den Folgen der Ansteckung gestorben sind. Rund 22 von 1000 neu eingewiesenen Klinikpatienten hätten das Bakterium in sich getragen, was eine deutliche Steigerung gegenüber früheren Zahlen bedeute.

Gleich drei medizinische Studien aus den USA und Kanada kommen zu alarmierenden Schlüssen: Ein potentiell tödliches Bakterium verbreitet sich nicht nur immer weiter, sondern ist mutiert und befällt auch Menschen, die bisher nicht als gefährdet galten.

Batarfi zufolge hatte sich Bin Laden zu der Reise entschlossen, um seinen kranken Sohn in den USA medizinisch behandeln zu lassen. Batafari konnte sich nicht erinnern, wo der Sohn behandelt wurde. Die Reise fand statt, bevor sich Bin Laden in Afghanistan den islamistischen Mudschaheddin anschloss und das Terrornetzwerk al-Qaida gründete. Vertreter von US-Regierung und Geheimdiensten konnten laut "New Yorker" nicht bestätigen, dass Bin Laden schon einmal in den USA war. Es lägen keine Akten mehr darüber vor.

Wrongful Imprisonment: Anatomy of a CIA "Mistake"

Corporate America controls the media and we get manufactured news.  Corporate America now controls the voting machines and we get manufactured elections.

The analysis also demonstrated that other voter statistics make it impossible for Bush to have won. Even if all Bush voters from 2000 showed up and voted for him, he still needed an additional 13 million votes. He didn’t get them from new voters and those who did not vote in 2000; those voters preferred Kerry by an almost 3-to-2 margin. Because of this, a Bush victory required that he must win a whopping 14% of Gore 2000 voters, all of whom had to return to vote in 2004. But Gore voters were angry; they came back to defeat Bush once again after having the election stolen from them.

Logical absurdities and inconsistencies in Election 2004 abound. The data, analysis + narrative are available here for open-minded individuals who want to form their own conclusions about “Stolen Election 2004.”

This work is just part of a comprehensive set of election fraud work and analysis provided by the dedicated voting rights activists in DemocraticUnderground.Com’s “2004: Election Results and Discussion” forum, a unique Net resource
After the polls closed, data from the Edison Mitofsky NEP survey (sponsored by the major television networks and CNN) was unintentionally released over the Internet. This was internal network data, embargoed from public use, data with statements like “Estimates not for on-air use” and “This page cannot be displayed.” The networks had locked down this data for their own use in an “electronic cover-up” that was offensive to those who knew the story. Luckily for all of us, Jonathan Simon downloaded the exit poll data and saved the CNN screen shots! The Edison-Mitofsky (EM)-Corporate Media (CM) “embargoed data” was available for anyone with eyes to see it and a mind to review it.
The debates on DemocraticUnderground's "2004: Election Results and Discussion" forum are legendary and have attracted observers from all over the Net.
Which brings us to the larger question surrounding these out-of-nowhere defense firms: How much of this stuff is real?
Interestingly, Dean found an MZM contract with the DOD dated February 13, 2003 in which MZM states that it has zero employees and zero revenue. The contract is for a mere $12,740,000.
MZM, run by Mitchell Wade -- a longtime member of the Wilkes/Cunningham "posse" -- began life in the early 1990s. Yet during most of the ensuing years, it made little impact on the world. As a "defense and intelligence" firm, it seems to have sprung from nothing in 2002, like a Rambo-ized Venus from the brow of Ares.
Another oddity: According to Dean, on each ADCS form -- whatever the year -- the company is listed as having 130 employees and annual revenues of "$13,345,9." (Yes, that is the figure given.) These numbers, I am told, never vary.
John Dean found that each of the DOD contracts to ADCS and its related firms were prepared by "DOD_MIGRATOR" -- whoever or whatever that may mean.
Who is the "inside man" in the Pentagon? I cannot believe that checks went to Wilkes based purely on the say-so of Duke Cunningham or the other bribed pols. Someone in the Pentagon's procurement offices must be signing off on these expenditures. If investigators identify the person or persons involved, then this conspiracy can be blown wide open.
Other recipients of Wilkes' largesse: President Bush, Katherine Harris, Tom Delay, Virgil Goode Jr. and Elizabeth Dole -- whose husband, as you may recall from yesterday's post, lent his name to Reverend Moon's "stamp out the cross" crusade. Talk about being on the Dole!
Did all these pols understand the ultimate source of the funds? Perhaps not. However, we know that Duncan Hunter -- chairman of the House Armed Services Committee -- was a
big ADCS pusher: Since 1994, Wilkes and ADCS gave $40,700 in campaign contributions to Rep. Duncan Hunter, a San Diego Republican who now chairs the House Armed Services Committee. Hunter has acknowledged that he joined with Cunningham in 1999 to contact Pentagon officials who reversed a decision and gave ADCS one of its first big contracts, for nearly $10 million." (USA Today, 11/29/05)
So which candidates got chunks of that taxpayer money earmarked for "defense"?
Henry Bonilla, Roy Brown, Rick Clayburgh, Duke Cunningham (of course!), John T. Doolittle, Maria Guadalupe Garcia, George W. Gekas, Lindsay Graham, Duncan Hunter, Darrell Issa, Samuel Johnson, Thaddeus G. McCotter, Constance Morella, Devin Nune, Steve Pearce, Bill Van de Weghe Jr., Jerry Weller.
All Republicans, of course. As the scandal unfolds, the pundits will try to convince us that "both sides do it." That simply is not true.

believe that, for all practical purposes, there is no Mirror Labs, although a firm by that name may well have performed an actual service at one time. So where did the money go? When that nice fat check filled with taxpayer $$ was sent to 15092 Avenue of Science, who opened it? And what did they do with the money?
Here is the organization that really has -- or had -- offices at that address: ADCS PAC. That's where the money went.
this archive page reveals that they once did have a site up, from 2001 to early 2004, at which point the firm, such as it was, seems to have become defunct.
On one form, the given address does not relate to the massive Wilkes complex on Stowe Avenue in Poway. Instead, the address is 15092 Avenue of Science, San Diego CA 92128.
That, we are told, is the address of a defense firm called Mirror Labs, allegedly a leading firm in the field of testing military equipment. They are referenced in
this edition of the Homeland Defense Journal. Their website, we are told, is
That URL goes nowhere. Google has no cache of anything ever being there.

excellent piece in Kos, you may want to read "Wilkes: The Invisible Empire" first. Also, I'm happy to report that this blockbuster piece on Wilkes in the San Diego Union Tribune strengthens the thesis presented here.)
The good news is that reporters working for the mainstream media have caught on -- in part. They understand that Randy "Duke" Cunningham is hardly the only Republican politician to receive economic "assistance" from Brent Wilkes, head of the Poway-based "defense" firm ADCS -- a.k.a. the Wilkes Corporation, a.k.a. Group W Advisors, a.k.a. lots of other names.
But they still treat this company as though it were something real . Not a single mainstream reporter has scrutinized those web sites and reported on the
obvious signs of fakery.
No reporters -- and, for that matter, no procurement officers at the Pentagon -- bothered to do any checking at the patent office. If they had, they would have found that there are no patents covering the "proprietary" designs and innovative equipment advertised by the many ADCS subsidiary firms.
The truth: Wilkes was a mechanism by which public funds earmarked for national defense were funneled to G.O.P. candidates and causes.

Bei den Mitarbeitern der Hauptabteilung Personenschutz, für die Heilmann von 1985 bis 1990 tätig war, habe es sich nicht um "einfache Türsteher", sondern vielmehr um eine "hochprofessionelle, bewaffnete Bewachung" der obersten Partei- und Staatsführung zum Schutz vor der Bevölkerung gehandelt. "Für Opfer des DDR-Regimes ist es eine unerträgliche Vorstellung, dass ein Mann mit dieser Vergangenheit im Parlament sitzt", sagte Knabe.
Auch für den Besuch der US-Außenministerin Condoleeza Rice diese Woche in Berlin ist der ausführliche Bericht in der "Post" über den Fall al-Masri unangenehm - und zwar für beide Seiten. Zu gern würde die neue Regierung etwas mehr Nähe zur USA praktizieren und die alten Differenzen wegen des Irak-Feldzugs endgültig begraben. Gleichwohl wird man schon wegen des öffentlichen Drucks kaum umhin kommen, Themen wie den Fall al-Masri und auch die umstrittenen geheimen Gefangenentransporte der CIA, bei denen auch immer wieder deutsche Flughäfen angeflogen oder zumindest deutscher Luftraum passiert wurde, zumindest zu erwähnen. Für Kanzlerin Merkel und auch den neuen Außenminister dürfte der Besuch deshalb zur Feuerprobe der schwierigen Diplomatie mit den USA werden.
Genau das passiert dann auch, als der Anwalt von al-Masri mit schweren Vorwürfen gegen die USA an die Presse ging.
so der damalige Wunsch der US-Regierung, sollte die Bundesregierung schweigen und so tun, als ob sie nichts wisse.
Berlin - Dass Otto Schily (SPD) sich gern als einer der engsten Freunde der USA sieht, ist kein Geheimnis. Keine Gelegenheit ließ der Mitstreiter im internationalen Kampf gegen den Terrorismus aus, um sich demonstrativ neben den Größen der US-Behörden ablichten zu lassen und erwähnte sie in Gesprächen gern ganz amerikanisch nur beim Vornamen. Auch zu seiner Freundschaft zu dem ehemaligen US-Botschafter Daniel R. Coats machte Schily nie eine Verschlusssache. Oft sah man die beiden auf Empfängen in Berlin beim freudigen Parlieren, wobei Schily sich gern im Englischen übte.
Dass nun jedoch die US-Zeitung "Washington Post" in großer Aufmachung detailliert über ein etwas diskreteres Treffen der beiden Freunde in Berlin berichtet, dürfte Schily weniger freudig stimmen. Wieder einmal ging es bei dem Besuch des Botschafters in Schilys Ministerium im Mai 2004 um den internationalen Terrorismus und was der US-Geheimdienst CIA dagegen so unternimmt. Statt sich aber über neue Erkenntnisse auszutauschen, musste US-Botschafter Coats Minister Schily im Auftrag seiner Regierung einen peinlichen Fehler der CIA beichten. Detailliert informierte er den deutschen Innenminister stellvertretend für die Bundesregierung, dass die CIA Ende 2003 irrtümlich einen deutschen Staatsangehörigen unter Terrorverdacht entführt und inhaftiert hatte.
Was Schily im Mai 2004 von seinem Gegenüber aus den USA erfuhr, ist fast anderthalb Jahre später recht gut dokumentiert. In einer haarkleinen Recherche ermittelte ein deutscher Staatsanwalt monatelang viele Details der schier unglaublichen Odyssee des Neu-Ulmers Khaled el-Masri. Mittlerweile bestanden auch vor der "Post"-Enthüllung kaum noch Zweifel daran, dass der Mann mit deutschem Pass Ende 2003 in Mazedonien zuerst festgenommen, dann später von der CIA entführt und im Januar 2004 nach Afghanistan ausgeflogen wurde. Grund für die Festnahme war vermutlich, dass bei den Ermittlungen über die Todespiloten der Name al-Masri mehrmals auftauchte. Nachdem sich jedoch trotz intensiver Verhöre, bei denen laut Masri selber auch folterähnliche Methoden angewandt worden sind, keine stichhaltigen Beweise gegen ihn fanden, wurde er Ende Mai 2004 heimlich wieder nach Europa zurückgeflogen.

Der versteinerte Dung stammt von einem Sauropoden, riesigen Landwirbeltieren mit langen Hälsen und kleinen Köpfen. Die Exkremente, Koprolith genannt, enthielten mikroskopisch kleine Partikel, die in Pflanzenzellen entstehen und deren Muster auf die Art der Pflanze schließen lassen. Nach den jüngsten Funden, die jetzt im Magazin "Science" vorgestellt werden, sind die Forscher sicher, dass nicht nur Gräser, sondern auch Reis und Bambus auf dem Speiseplan der Dinosaurier standen.
Die Gräser müssten sich also schon vor mehr als 80 Millionen Jahren - weit früher als bisher angenommen - entwickelt haben, um bis zur Zeit der Dinosaurier so viele Arten entstehen zu lassen, erklärte Caroline Stromberg vom Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm. Trotz allem machte das Gras jedoch keinen großen Teil der Dino-Ernährung aus. Dafür waren ihre Zähne nicht geeignet.

"The bigger question is how do we capitalize on the placebo effect,'' said Dr. Helen Mayberg of Emory University, whose studies suggest some antidepressants have a "placebo-plus'' activity in the brain. "There may be a phenomenon we all have access to.''
But it appears that because Alzheimer's robs patients of the cognitive ability to expect a benefit, they need higher doses of painkillers to get as much relief as non-demented patients

To further prove the power of belief, Benedetti hooked pain patients to a computerized morphine injection system. Sometimes the computer administered a dose without them knowing it; sometimes a nurse pretended to give it. The morphine was up to 50 percent more effective when patients knew it was coming.

2. Krisensozialismus und Sozialpatriotismus
Formierung der Gemeinschaft gegen das Individuum

Die Sozialdemokratie der 90er Jahre betreibt eine Politik der Gesellschaftsformierung, um den Sozialabbau zu ermöglichen, der die Hightech-Subventionen finanzierbar machen soll. Sie greift dabei auf den Antiliberalismus und Antihedonismus zurück, der ihre Politik bereits im Ersten Weltkrieg und teilweise in der Krisenzeit am Ende der Weimarer Republik bestimmte. Der Abbau sozialer und demokratischer Rechte, die ökonomische Eroberung und künstliche Verarmung Osteuropas, Konsumverzicht im Westen, der Ruf nach Zwangsdiensten zugunsten der Konzerngewinne: all dies pries die Sozialdemokratie bereits früher und preist sie heute wieder als Fortschritt an. Nationale Rhetorik geht dabei mit konservativer Zivilisationskritik in eins. Die materiellen Interessen der Mehrheit der Individuen werden geopfert zugunsten eines angeblichen Gemeinschaftsinteresses, das sich wiederum nur als Kapitalverwertungsinteresse der Besitzenden zeigt.

Can you imagine - can you imagine - the outcry of horror that would have erupted if Bill Clinton or anyone in his family had given a public thumbs-up to the purveyors of "take down the cross day"?

When are the "Christians" in this country going to wake up ?
Note to Neil: Father Moon mandates that you cannot have sex without a picture of Moon overseeing your activity. Better remember that, next time you hear one of those inexplicable knocks at the door...

George W. Bush, wrote a warm letter of support presented at the event by a state senator, in which the president and his wife Laura sent his best wishes to the sponsors -- and thanked them for rallying his "armies of compassion." It is unclear what the ACLC has done for society's problems, though its Web site is selling a video called "Beyond The Cross," and an affiliated Moon front group, Free Teens USA, has received almost half a million $$ under Bush's Abstinence-Only program
The fling with the Thetans was a passing fancy; the Bush family's real loyalties remain with Moon.
When a Moon front group called the American Clergy Leadership Conference sponsored its "Tear Down the Cross" day, both 41 and 43 made public
declarations of approval:
And what about Neil Bush ? Interestingly enough, this is not the first time his name has been linked with a cult.

00.000.2002 -Three years ago-, Neil Bush functioned as a spokesman for Scientology

00.000.2002 -when Neil Bush appeared before a Congressional committee in opposition to the use of Ritalin. (This is one case in which the Hubbardites may have a point.

Even so, a presidential brother should never associate with a cult front group.) 03.Dec.2005
Interestingly, the IIFWP played a roll in a previous Moon-approved crusade that nearly all Christians would find particularly appalling. Just last year, this front group made an attempt to convince (and by "convince," I mean bribe) churches to get
rid of their crosses. Moon does not like the cross.

In truth, he doesn't like Jesus either, although his followers tend to keep the spotlight well away from that corner of his theological foundation. 03.Dec.2005
But here we have what I believe to be a shot of Neil Bush alongside the Reverend Moon.

They travelled to Manila to inaugurate Moon's latest project:

A "spiritual" version of the United Nations, called the Universal Peace Federation, which seems to be an outgrowth of Moon's International Inter-religious Federation for World Peace.

(He gives these things such lovely names, doesn't he?) See here for more. 03.Dec.2005
So why is Neil Bush - the president's brother + notorious S&L crook - hanging out with the even more notorious Reverend Sun Myung Moon, cult leader and self-proclaimed Lord of the Second Advent?
Although the Bush family has long-standing ties to Moon (see
here and here), members of our ruling dynasty have carefully avoided being photographed alongside the Korean "Messiah."

No doubt, this reticence stems from Moon's known ties to Fascists, North Korea, drug money and other unsavories. Worse, his theology ( Jesus was a failure; Moon's the better Messiah ), not to mention his history of having sex with his followers, would annoy most members of the Christian right.

Lawall hat das neue Verfahren bereits bei einer Entfernung von einigen Millimetern getestet.

Es könne später für bis zu 50 Millimeter lange Abstände eingesetzt werden.

Könnte man mit diesem Verfahren die Strecke von New York nach Los Angeles bestimmen, läge der Fehler lediglich bei einem Millimeter, erklärte der Forscher.
Um eine derartige Präzision überhaupt erreichen zu können, zählte Lawall nicht die Wellenlängen, sondern konzentrierte sich auf die Frequenz des Laserstrahls.

Er fing das Licht zwischen zwei gegenüberliegenden Spiegeln ein - eine Art optische Orgelpfeife.

Die Länge einer Orgelpfeife kann mithilfe der Frequenz bestimmt werden, bei der es zur Resonanz kommt, die Pfeife also besonders laut ist.

Ähnlich geht Lawall bei dem Laserstrahl vor: Er variiert die Frequenz, findet die Eigenfrequenzen des Spiegelsystems + kann daraus den Abstand der Spiegel berechnen.
