05.Aug.2006 U.S., France agree on cease-fire package. Nico - The USA + France agreed Saturday on a draft UN Security Council resolution that “calls for a full cessation of hostilities based upon, in particular, the immediate cessation by Hezbollah of all attacks and the immediate cessation by Israel of all offensive military operations.”
05.Aug.2006 Iraq’s New Freedom on Display: Hundreds of Thousands Chant ‘Death To America’ Faiz 
Before the Iraq war, Bush officials repeatedly heralded the transformative effect that a liberated Iraq would have both for the U.S. and the Middle East:

BUSH: Acting against the danger will also contribute greatly to the long-term safety and stability of our world. …

A liberated Iraq can show the power of freedom to transform this vital region by bringing hope + progress into the lives of millions. [2/26/03]

CHENEY: Should all [Saddam’s] ambitions be realized, the implications would be enormous for the Middle East, for the USA + for the peace of the world. [26.Aug.2002]

WOLFOWITZ: The stakes of building a peaceful, prosperous Iraq that treats its own people decently and is at peace with its neighbors, the stakes are enormous. …

That kind of an Iraq, I think, could be a real force for peace + prosperity + progress throughout the Middle East. [12/4/02]

Your new Iraq: Hundreds of thousands of Shiites chanting “Death to Israel” + “Death to America” marched through the streets of Baghdad’s biggest Shiite district Friday

in a show of support for Hezbollah militants battling Israeli troops in Lebanon.
“Mahdi Army and Hezbollah are one. Let them confront us if they dare,” the predominantly male crowd shouted, waving the flags of Hezbollah, Lebanon and Iraq.
Protesters set fire to American and Israeli flags, as well as effigies of President Bush + Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, showing the men with Dracula teeth.

“Saddam + Bush, Two Faces of One Coin” was scrawled on Bush’s effigy.

05.Aug.2006 NEW DOCUMENT: Senate Millionaires Against Raising The Minimum Wage Think Progress 
Last night, the Senate
rejected a bill that combined the “Paris Hilton tax cut” with an increase in the minimum wage, dealing a blow to conservatives who thought they had “outfoxed” their opponents.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) continued to resist calls for a straight vote on the minimum wage.

“These issues must be addressed as a package, all or nothing,” he said. Unsurprisingly, conservative Senate leaders pushing hardest for further cuts in the estate tax are multimillionaires themselves.

For example, Frist boasts assets $10,584,000-$39,260,000 in blind trusts.

If one were to work a normal 40-hour week for 52 weeks a year for minimum wage, it would take between 988 and 3,665 years to amass Frist’s fortune.

While Frist has stringently supported large tax cuts for fellow multimillionaire trust babies + annual $3,300 pay raises for himself + his Senate colleagues,

he has thus far refused to give a small raise to the nearly 8 million Americans who live on $5.15 an hour.

Read our new report on the Senate millionaires who are fighting against a straightforward vote on the minimum wage.
05.Aug.2006 Hagel: U.S. Should Start Withdrawing Troops From Iraq Within 6 Months Judd 
00.Jun.2006 Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) voted against the Levin amendment, a “nonbinding proposal [that] did not set a withdrawal deadline, but
urged President Bush to start pulling U.S. forces out of Iraq this year.”

At the time, Hagel explained his vote:

We should not limit the Commander in Chief’s options in Iraq. That is why I will vote against the Levin amendment.

Just two months later, Hagel’s views have shifted considerably. His position now appears consistent with the Levin amendment. From the Lincoln Journal Star:

The USA needs to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq within the next six months, Sen. Chuck Hagel said Thursday, rather than ratcheting up its military commitment now.

With Iraq exploding in sectarian violence and “moving closer and closer to a straight-out civil war,” Hagel said,

the Bush administration’s decision to transfer nearly 5,000 additional U.S. troops into Baghdad is “only going to make it worse for us.”

In the end, he said, “feed(ing) more American troop fodder into the fight” could result in “even a worse defeat.”

A diverse group of 12 Democrats recently sent a letter to President Bush expressing their support for the principles of the Levin amendment.

Hagel should think about backing up his words with actions + signing on to this effort.
August 4, 2006 Think Progress 

A federal judge “lashed out” at Bush’s EPA yesterday “for pursuing industry-friendly regulations at the same time it missed statutory deadlines to control toxic air pollution from small industrial plants.”

The judge ordered to EPA to finish its clean air rules by 2009.

A Gallup poll released yesterday “revealed another upward bump in the number of Amercians (55 %) who now want a complete U.S. troop withdrawal from Iraq in the next 12 months.”

Condoleezza Rice expressed support Thursday “for an immediate cease-fire in Lebanon as the first phase in ending the conflict between Israel + Hezbollah,” the “most concrete signal yet that the U.S. may be willing to compromise on the stalemate over how to end the fighting.”

Three Senate Judiciary Committee members will block the confirmation of Steven Bradbury, acting head of the Justice Department’s office of legal counsel, to protest President Bush’s move to squash a probe into the NSA wiretapping program by denying investigators security clearances.

“ Heat waves like those that have scorched Europe and the USA in recent weeks are becoming more frequent because of global warming, say scientists,” the Washington Post reports.

“The court fight to take Tom DeLay, the indicted former House majority leader, off the

00.Nov.2006 ballot in Texas will be taken to the U.S. Supreme Court,” GOP officials said yesterday.

“Eight months after former Rep. Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham confessed to taking massive bribes in exchange for providing at least $230 million in questionable defense + intelligence contracts,

the Defense Department inspector general still has not determined whether any of those projects were improper.”

“Despite recurring speeches touting” President Bush’s “ambitious $136 billion ‘ American Competitiveness Initiative ‘ to boost the country’s ability to stay abreast of global competitors,”

CongressDaily reports the effort “is becalmed in Congress + in danger of foundering as more U.S. jobs are moving abroad.”

Power, Water and Refrigeration in One Box ScuttleMonkey 19 Roland Piquepaille writes

"Engineers at the University of Florida have developed and built a system that can provide power, water and refrigeration from a single unit.

This project, funded by the U.S. Army, will lead to units small enough to fit inside a military jet or a large truck.

The prototype system is already more efficient than conventional turbines.

And it is also environmentally friendly because it can use traditional fossil fuels as well as biomass-produced fuels or hydrogen and releases only small amounts of pollutants.

This kind of system could be used as a mobile unit in case of hurricanes or wars. But it might also be connected to the normal power grid in fixed locations."

In addition, the police have determined that the man's complaint about the detective was justified."
05.Aug.2006 » Blog Archive » A Good Read

Remember when Martha Mitchell was considered a looney when she pointed out the crookedness of Richard Nixon + when he was dethroned, they came out with ...
1. Bush + the neocons corrupted the entire 2000 election to make sure Bush "won" the election.

When their best efforts did not completely succeed, their neocon pals on the Supreme Court prohibited the Florida votes from being counted + appointed Bush President.
2. Bush + the neocons have looted the U.S. treasury, given all our money and turned over all our resources to their elite ruling class friends, including passing new laws that say rich people do not have to pay taxes.
3. Bush + the neocons sold the entire government to the corporations.

Corporations pay money to neocons and are allowed, in exchange, to write new laws saying corporations can do whatever they want and no one can stop them.
4. Bush + the neocons lied to the public + to the world to begin a world war, starting by invading Afghanistan, then Iraq; now moving into Lebanon; apparently planning to attack + invade Syria + Iran next.

All of this was carefully planned and written down by dual-agent neocons including Richard Perle + Doug Feith, in "A Clean Break," prepared for Israel + various PNAC documents prepared for the U.S.

5. People who refuse to even consider that the neocons planned, financed, carried out the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. justify their position by proclaiming: "I just refuse to believe any American would do something like that." These people are so funny.
6. The PNAC writings showed the neocons knew the biggest obstacle to their plan to militarize + corporatize the entire world was the U.S. public, which just isn't that "in" to war.

They put in writing that the only way to get the public to go along with it (at least long enough for the neocons to complete taking power) was if there was an attack on the U.S. like "Pearl Harbor."

7. 9/11 was our fire in the Reichstag.
8. The entire world is now waiting for D-Day. Who, when, how to stop these people?
9. I do not personally have any information about any Americans being involved in planning, financing, carrying out the 9/11 attacks.

But the dots all lead in that direction. Obviously the Bush people have used all their efforts to prevent a thorough investigation and prohibit disclosure of the truth. Why?

When you do forensic work, one of the main questions you ask is who benefits?

The day after 9/11, Osama denied that he had anything to do with it.

What possible motivation would he have to deny this?

After a few days of U.S. accusations, he finally took credit for it.

Anyone who believes that Al-Qaeda is a centralized terrorist organization with a network as advanced as the old Soviet Union is smoking something.

The so-called Soviet cells of the 50s was a complete myth.

Many of the members of the U.S. Communist Party were undercover FBI agents.
I remember Rumsfeld on Meet The Press in 2002 describing sophisticated operations in Tora Bora with state of the art mountain cave operations for Al Qaeda.

Tim Russert then produced an artistic rendering of a sophisticated operation inside the mountains of Tora Bora.

Rumsfeld then suggested that there are several caves throughout the world as sophisticated is the ones in Tora Bora.

When U.S. + British troops inspected the captured areas of Tora Bora, they found nothing.

The tapes clearly showed that everyone was confused and tardy in their responses to the 4 hijackings and that Bush did not give the "shoot down" order until all the airplanes had crashed.

This is essentially the same conclusion that the 9/11 Commission came to. The convenience about incompetence as an excuse is that by blaming everyone, no one is responsible.
Below is a review of Posner's book, Case Closed :

"Review of Gerald Posner, Case Closed David R. Wrone This review appeared in the Journal of Southern History 6 (February 1995), pp. 186-188 This electronic version from Case Closed: Lee Harvey Oswald and the Assassination of JFK. By Gerald Posner. (New York: Random House, 1993. Pp. xvi, 607. $25.00, ISBN 0-679-41825-3.)

Gerald Posner argues that the Warren Commission properly investigated the assassination of JFK.

He claims to have refuted the critics, purports to show what actually occurred + asserts simple factual answers to explain complex problems that have plagued the subject for years.

In the process he condemns all who do not agree with the official conclusions as theories driven by conjectures.

At the same time his book is so theory driven, so rife with speculation + so frequently unable to conform his text with the factual content in his sources that it stands as one of the stellar instances of irresponsible publishing on the subject."

Either Posner is naïve or is a willing supporter of the establishment.

00.000.1970 -s in the late- Even Congress voted that the assassination of Kennedy was probably a conspiracy + we will probably never know who did it.
You have now seen enough to know that the "small-plane" evidence is deserving of careful examination.

I believe we can overthrow the 9-11 conspiracy + bring peace + justice + better lives for all if we simply get these crucial findings to the public.

Small Plane Evidence

Rumsfeld's Slaughterhouse Wedge

Eyewitness Testimony Examination

Proof of Rumsfeld's Involvement

Pentagon Conspiracy Links Page Proof of Class Warfare - High Treason

Without exception, except for the traitors who work to bury the truth,

everyone who wakes up to the fact of mass-murder frame-up of innocent people by our own government

for power + profit + to crush the spirit + life of all below them,

must take to the streets in solidarity to overthrow what we have to overthrow.
Pentagon Crash Analysis Proves Black-op Frame-up:
Zionism is not a set of good people and bad people -- it is the teaching of racial superiority + of God's will for genocide against Arabs + anyone else who resists Zionist domination -

it creates men like Menechem Begin the Zionist who said:
"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects.

In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts + animals, cattle at best.

Other races are considered as human excrement.

Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races.

Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron.

The masses will lick our feet + serve us as our slaves." - Israeli Prime Minister Menechem Begin
"I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel.

We, the Jewish people, control America + the Americans know it." - Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon
28.Feb.1994 "One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail." - Rabbi Yaacov Perrin (NY Daily News,, p.6)
01.Jun.1928 "The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy + by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship.
- In this "new world order" the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition.

The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews.

It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property + everywhere to make use of the resources of the state.
- Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that

when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands." Baruch Levy, Letter to Karl Marx,`La Revue de Paris', p.574,
The people who are making the decisions for genocide with their military might are Zionists.

If they were not Zionists, if they did not believe the basic assertions of Zionism, they would not be killing.

The Israeli leaders are Zionists. The Zionists also include Jewish/American/British billionaires who especially believe that their money power + Jewishness puts them above the norms and ethics of society - that Zionist imperative for Jewish domination is above the gentile notions of right and wrong, law, justice and humanity.
The Israeli Moles Who Controlled US Defense Computers On 911 -By Christopher Bollyn -(excerpt)
I followed that response with a question about the relationship between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert + Menachem Atzmon, the man who oversaw passenger screening + airport security at Boston's Logan Airport on 9/11, as owner of ICTS, the parent company of Huntleigh USA.
Mr. Chamish seemed quite surprised that I knew of this relationship and said that if, indeed, Atzmon was responsible for security at Boston's airport on 9/11, then it was worthy of being followed up, because Olmert and Atzmon are truly very close political allies and co-defendants in old Likud crimes:

All of these civilian air traffic controllers were in on the conspiracy? Reply from Dick Eastman:
87 Israelis were working illegally at Dulles + Reagan National Airports (where Flight 77 took off + where it landed) - + they had illegal top security clearances badges allowing them access to every location, every function of the airport. These individuals were in the tower, at baggage, at the hanger where Flight 77 taxied after landing at Reagon following the Pentagon fly over.

These espionage agents of Israel were returned to Israel by Attny. General Aschcroft a few months after the attack.
How many of you "investigators" are familiar with this fact that was in the newspapers at the time? Dick Eastman

...I am a forensic accountant who is trained to "connect dots." Forensic work is always part science and part instinct. The ones with the good instincts evaluating empirical data are the best forensic professionals.

People who are in forensic work can only be good if they can be objective about the failure of apparent human instincts such as the perception that the earth is flat.
All you have to do is read PNAC, The Project For The New American Century.

The writings of the neo-cons in the late 90s conform to the events on 9/11 + the necessity of a second "Pearl Harbor" to rally the American people to support the PNAC plan .

Having reviewed the inconsistencies and contradictions of reports on 9/11, I have concluded that the 19 hijackers were really part of what they believed to be an Al-Qaeda funded operation.

All 19 sincerely believed in what they were doing and the operation probably was funded by a real terrorist group.

However, given the remarkable incompetence of the intelligence agencies and our air defense system, I have concluded that the 19 hijackers had inside help ...
Proving the earth was round was counterintuitive to our instincts, but proven by science.
05.Aug.2006 Combating Harassing Use of Mosquito Noise Device? Cliff 590 amicold asks:

"For a while now my neighborhood has had to deal with an elderly neighbor who has displayed a slightly paranoid attitude towards myself +

the fellow younger-adults of the neighborhood, believing us to be attempting to harass him in our day-to-day activities.

Recently, he installed a Mosquito ultrasonic noise device as an apparent attempt to 'get back at us' for our harassment.

As the Mosquito emits a sound that's well out of his hearing range, he can't hear it, while most of the rest of the neighborhood is under 40 and can; at which point it's causing everyone a great deal of discomfort. Unfortunately, because the police also can't hear it, we can't get the authorities to do anything about it, leaving us empty-handed in our attempts at getting some peace + quiet back.

What can we do to either help the police realize how disturbing this device is, or counteract it so that it's no longer disturbing us?

And is this the first of what may be a growing trend of civilians using high-tech discomfort weapons as a method of neighborhood warfare?"
As Iraqis stand up, Amanda - the U.S. military is forced to stand up even more, despite President Bush’s promises.

“A review of previously unreleased statistics on American + Iraqi patrols suggests that as Americans handed over responsibilities to the Iraqis, violence in Baghdad increased.”
05.Aug.2006 August 5, 2006 Think Progress 
Though the Bush administration “pushed hard for a Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon” last year, it “paid much less attention” to fostering democracy in the country afterwards. “
We did nothing, we did absolutely nothing” to bolster the weak Lebanese government after the Syrian withdrawal, a State Department official admitted.

The office of National Intelligence Director John Negroponteannounced yesterday that

it will soon begin drafting an updated National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq ,” a victory for progressive senators who called for a new NIE last week.

If Congress doesn’t act to raise the minimum wage by December 1, “it will be the longest stretch without an increase since the minimum wage was enacted in 1938.”

“July marked a new all-time record for electricity use in the USA + that was prior to even hotter weather straining the power grid this week.”

30: The %age of Fort Irwin soldiers who have returned from Iraq “experiencing some symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder,”

such as “nightmares, problems sleeping, anger, anxiety, detachment from the outside world + intrusive thoughts or flashbacks.”

Democratic senators blocked several Bush nominees Friday, including two industry-linked officials nominated to oversee mine safety + an EPA air quality nominee who helped write new rules easing air pollution standards on mercury emissions and elecricity plants.

Israeli airstrikes yesterday killed “at least 33 Syrian Kurdish farm workers” in “one of the single deadliest strikes of the war,” + destroyed “four bridges on a key aid route leading north from Beirut.”

Hezbollah militants fired “ more than 200 rockets at northern towns and villages, killing three civilians and injuring dozens.”

The AP reports, “Given the determination of both Hezbollah and Israel to look victorious when the conflict finally ends,

the worst of the fighting may still lie ahead with the militant Shiite guerrilla fighters perhaps making good on their threat to rocket Tel Aviv + Israel launching an all-out ground offensive.”

And finally: City officials in Oregon, Ill. have agreed to change the name of a monument to agriculture that is scheduled to be put up outside a local judicial center.

The original title — “Demeter Over Illinois” — was rejected after “some religious leaders in town” complained that it was “too polytheistic.” The statue’s new name will be “Agriculture, Mother of Civilization.”
05.Aug.2006 FACT CHECK: Data Bolsters Notion Of Iraqi Civil War Nico 
Conservative Cybercast News published an article today titled “
Data Contradicts Notion of Widespread Iraqi Civil War.

It argues that critics are wrong that Iraq has devolved into a civil war since,

as Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said last week, high levels of violence are concentrated in “Baghdad and two or three other provinces + yet in 14 other provinces there’s very little violence or numbers of incidents.” From Cybercast:

A vast majority of Americans say they expect the current sectarian violence in Iraq to become a full-scale civil war, but U.S. military data compiled in Iraq indicates that over a two-month period ending on

21.Jul.2001 most of the violence happened in just four of Iraq’s 18 provinces.

The U.S. military figures cited by Cybercast show the four provinces with the highest levels of violence are Baghdad, Al Anbar, Salah ad Din + Diyala.

Those four provinces are precisely where one would expect violence if a Sunni-Shiite civil war were taking place,

since they are the provinces where the vast bulk of Iraq’s Sunnis (who make up just 1/3 of the population) are located.

Baghdad has several large Sunni-dominated neighborhoods from which Shiites have fled in a wave of violent “ethnic cleansing.

Al Anbar, Salah ad Din + Diyala are the only three Iraqi provinces in which Sunnis are the dominant majority.

Cybercast News has demonstrated the exact opposite of what it intended: the current trends of violence in Iraq all point to civil war.
Former White House advisor blames Hurricane Katrina Judd- for shoplifting incidents.

“Former White House adviser Claude Allen tearfully pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor theft charge Friday, telling a Montgomery County judge that he lost his bearings after working 14-hour days + getting little sleep in the “tumultuous time” after Hurricane Katrina.” TPMmuckraker has the details.
05.Aug.2006 Senate to Negroponte: stop stonewalling. Nico 
Two weeks ago, Harper’s reported that National Intelligence Director John Negroponte was
stonewalling the creation of a new National Intelligence Estimate on Iraq because he knew the findings would be even more pessimistic than the 2004 version.

Today, the Senate today passed an amendment, proposed by Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA), that requires Negroponte to produce the new NIE.
05.Aug.2006 “The Defense Department quietly asked Congress Nico- on Monday to raise the maximum age for military recruits to 42 for all branches of the service.”
05.Aug.2006 The Great Israeli- Mariel Boat Lift and Murder Show. By Visible

The more I watch Israel, level Lebanon, pound Lebanon into the sand and punt little children through the goal posts of ruined buildings from 8 inch canon shots; scoring three more points in a game that never ends.

The more I watch them flame-broiled with phosphorous in an authentic sand oven;

the more I think about how very much the emigration to The Great Israeli-Elite Armageddon Theme Park resembles the Mariel Boat Lift from Cuba.

00.000.1980 Castro sent 125,000 ‘Marielitos’ to Miami;a fifth of these were criminals + mental patients who served to create a major social + bureaucratic uproar in centers all along the east coast where they were detained.

Both Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton got some major grief from this. Well, you’ve probably seen the movie Scarface.
It looks like the net result in Israel today, as a result of immigration from Europe to the Middle East after the end of WWII. is that many criminals + mental patients were also included in the mix.

The only difference is that the %ages appear to be much higher.

There are other mitigating factors. The Cuban’s didn’t control the world press.

The Cuban’s didn’t have anything like AIPAC + the JDL + assorted lobbies.

The Cuban’s didn’t poison the residents wells + swimming pools + the Miami water supply or rampage through suburban neighborhoods, indiscriminately murdering the residents + driving everyone else into the Everglades.

Well, the Cuban’s didn’t speak Yiddish.

In all fairness we should point out that the Israelis didn’t speak Spanish either.
05.Aug.2006 In America, the dumbest, most deluded + incompetent leader in history- unelected- broods like a deranged baboon on the golden throne of modern Rome;

ruling over the greatest war machine ever constructed.

Thousands of fundies weep tears of joy for some coming rapture in the sky.

Vile demagogues fill the nation’s airwaves with lies + exhortations in a fool’s paradise.

In the government, dissent is silent.

The culpable + the cowardly sit on their hands.

Step by step the darkness approaches + the band plays on.

Exposed are the machinations of UK + US intelligence + how these agencies facilitate radicals + patsies to acheive their ends.

This interview fleshes out Ahmed's statement in The Hidden History of 9-11-2001 about Al-Qaeda;
"It has no existence as an independent concrete entity.

It designates a highly developed category of Western covert operations designed to secure destabilization through the creation, multiplication, mobilization + manipulation of disparate mujahideen groups.

Email From Kyle Hence

The following email from Kyle Hence includes a good list of 10 questions which we should demand answers to. [Editor: We edited the numbering to make it more readable.]
Recent articles in corporate media examine deception and lying by the Department of Defense relative to the attacks of 11.Sep.2001.

They shed light on an effective cover-up by the 9/11 Commission in its refusal to bring Government deception to the American people by way of their discredited 9/11 Report.

Links to these articles follow as do 10 questions which these revelations + NORAD tapes beg to be asked and which must be answered . . . .
The real and problematic confusion and fog is one which is seemingly preventing the corporate media from grappling with any of the following pressing questions which have been advanced for years by the 9/11 families, advocates and independent researchers.
Here are Ten Questions that the corporate media have thus far refused to raise or attempt to answer in their examination of the NORAD tapes and related issues:
(1) Who was responsible for scheduling multiple war games and terror exercises involving aircraft for 11.Sep.2001 ?
(2) Who moved "Global Guardian" normally scheduled for October to September?
(3) Who designed the war games to involve 'hijackings'?
(4) Who planned and scheduled the movement of Airforce aircraft north to Canada, Alaska and Greenland?
(5) Who planned the terror exercise at the NRO involving an evacuation in response to threat from the air?
(6) Who was "hands-on" responsible for coordinating all the war games the morning of 11.Sep.2001?
(7) Who would have been responsible for turning off the war games to enable a timely real world response to the attacks?
(8) How were as many as 21 false radar blips or possible targets (per Jane Garvey) inserted into FAA radar screens?
(9) Who was responsible for the identification of ghost flight 11 which allegedly continued to fly south past Manhattan +

which may have caused NORAD's Langley intercept jets to vector North toward NYC rather than D.C.?
[NOTE: John Farmer of the 9/11 Commission said to me personally that the 9/11 Commission was never able to identify the individual for this information--to resolve this anomaly.]
(10) Why was there no reference to the pattern of 9/11 Commission cover-up including that of Able Danger as revealed by Capt. Scott Philpott?
The bottom line question that corporate media refuse to answer +

which the 9/11 Commission ignored is who, specifically, would have been responsible for creating the circumstances that led to the confusion or fog the morning of 9/11 +

who should have immediately ceased any + all war gaming activity + deceptive radar data?
To begin to answer these questions journalists intent on getting answers to questions long asked by the families and others should visit:
Center for Cooperative Research: Essay "U.S. Military Exercises up to 9/11"
Randi Rhodes interview with Complete 9/11 Timeline author, Paul Thompson on Air America
Enough with excusing those responsible by pointing to 'confusion' or 'fog'.

The real and dangerous 'fog' here is that which prevents journalists from doing their jobs + asking + answering the hard questions about 9/11 including those posed above + those surrounding the growing evidence for controlled demolition of the WTC towers + WTC7. [Google Dr. Steven Jones & WTC]"

I declare August to be National Reading Month
Wisconsin State Representative Steve Nass has called for the University of Wisconsin to fire professor Kevin Barrett for his belief that 9/11 was an inside job, but

hasn't looked at any of the facts concerning 9/11 for himself.
Texas pastor Toby Brown is attacking David Ray Griffin's newest book, "Christian Faith and the Truth Behind 9/11", but
hasn't bothered to read it.
Okay, Listen up . . .
I am declaring August to be "National Reading Month".

Everyone who still believes the official story about 9/11 - but hasn't looked at the evidence for themselves - has until the end of the month to get up to speed on the subject.
During National Reading Month, political, religious + other leaders cannot make any ill-informed, half-baked statements about 9/11 unless they include references to the facts cited by Professors Barrett + Griffin + honestly explain what homework they still have to do + which facts they have not yet looked into.

A book published by the denominational press of the Presbyterian Church (USA) poses provocative questions about 11.Sep.2001 + has raised the hackles of church conservatives.
Westminster John Knox Press, a division of Presbyterian Publishing Corp., is printing 7,500 copies of "Christian Faith + the Truth Behind 9/11," according to Davis Perkins, the corporation's president + publisher.

It was officially released during the second week of July, Perkins said.
The book is written by David Ray Griffin, a former professor of theology who has written two other books that posit a conspiratorial link between the U.S. government + the 11.Sep.2001 terrorist attacks.
In the book Griffin argues that "the Bush administration planned the events of 11.Sep.2001 so they could provide justification for going to war in Afghanistan + Iraq," according to an article on Christianity Today's Web site. Thanks to FHB.
Eyes on the Prize

Given the mihop versus lihop war that the new Norad revelations have stirred up, I've updated this essay.

Was the FBI investigation blocked?

Norway's Le Monde Diplomatique continues its 9/11 investigation in the

00.Aug.2006 issue, "Was the FBI investigation blocked?" ("Ble FBI hindret i etterforskningen?")
...It appears that several agents + other FBI staff believed that opportunities for good police work + investigation were lost

11.Sep.2001 -in the months before-.

This was what lawyer David Schippers, (also known for having brought a case against President Bill Clinton before the Court of Impeachment) experienced when he was contacted by several FBI agents who claimed that they knew about dates, targets, financial transactions + names of the perpetrators involved in the impending terrorist attacks.

Schippers claims that armed with this information, he tried to warn John Ashcroft

six weeks in advance that a terrorist attack would be launched in lower Manhattan.

But the FBI threatened to sue their agents if they revealed what they knew.

In order to allow the information to be publicised before a terrorist attack took place, the agents agreed with David Schippers that he would represent them in a federal courtroom, supported by Judicial Watch, an organisation offering free legal assistance.

In this way they would have the opportunity to be heard if they were called as witnesses.

That the agents were in possession of the type of information Schippers claims they were was also confirmed by William Norman Grigg in The New American .

He interviewed three FBI agents who claimed that the information to which Schippers had access was common knowledge to the FBI

11.Sep.2001 -before-– + that everyone knew that it was simultaneously being ignored in Washington ... Nothing new here, but it's undoubtedly brand new to a significant # of Norwegians.

2MB MP3 Investigate THIS!

Here's my reaction to Tucker Carlson's statement that perhaps a new 9/11 investigation is needed.
The evidence is now so strong that the 9/11 Commission was a whitewash, that even imperial lapdog Tucker Carlson is saying we may need a new investigation. Sorry . . . but the time for investigation is OVER.

Because investigations are routinely undertaken by government when an administration doesn't want to DO anything.

"Let's do a study" is code for "let's delay as long as possible + hope people get distracted + forget the need to actually do something".
"Uh, we'll get back to you after we study it for a couple more years."
Its like studying global warming indefinitely instead of doing something like signing the Kyoto Protocol or demanding better gas mileage (if you don't agree about man-made global warming, then ignore this example.

But you still know the bureaucratic dynamic I'm talking about).
I demand action NOW + I'm not going to get distracted as a new 9/11 "investigation" drags on for years.
In addition to the delay + distract type of investigation, there is also a long tradition + history of whitewash cover-up investigations, like the investigation into how the Pearl Harbor attack happened +

the Warren Commission's investigation into JFK's murder.
I refuse to play this game. I know that any new commission or panel will be made up of cover-up artists + hacks, just like the original 9/11 Commission.
The time for investigations and studies are long past.

It is time for justice NOW against all of the planners + perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks (we won't accept a couple of low-level scapegoats or sacrificial lambs) .
I demand JUSTICE NOW. And I stand with many millions of Americans (
more than a third of the U.S. population).
So bring all of the 9/11 perps to justice now, or you will have the opportunity to investigate what hundreds of million angry Americans do when the People's will is ignored."

It looks like you are doing a lot of good work and you are an honest advocate for truth about 9/11.
I have spent several hours considering whether I should send the following post.

By posting this, I'm throwing myself into the firing line to some degree + will be ridiculed for what I'm going to say.

I don't intend to mount of strong defense of my contention, so those of you who want a debate will not get one from me. However, consider the following.
Kyle Hense is a distractor. My list of alleged distractors is published here:
The contents of the above link is there on a web page to be debated, so don't hestitate to have at it, wiki style.
What's my point, what do I mean?

I mean that ther are agents who inject themselves into the stream of communications + by their actions they muddly the clarity needed to create a legitimate groundswell of outrage throughout the American population.
Vanity Fair Magazine has had articles that serve to distract.

Also, the article about the 9/11 Commission + the criminal referral published in the Wash Po. was a distractor. Many of the agents working as distractors are very sophisicated.
Let me point out just how powerful, integrated + cunning the manipulators are:
It's my contention that the Mel Gibson DUI episode was a carefullly scripted psyop.

I think Mel was acting. (I'm not saying he's wasn't drinking. I'm not saying that is didn't have tequila open in his car.

I am saying he wasn't drunk enough to be caught red handed + to make the whole scene the way he did).

I don't think the police had to have been "in on it" for the plan to work.

I think Zionist forces hatched an incredible plan to manipulate the debate about Jews + Israel to immobilize the huge sentiment about the US support + handling of the current War/Crisis.

If you think I'm crazy to speculate about such a things, I honestly ask any of you whether a blood alcohol content of .12 turns anyone into a lunitic who not only would have a great deal of unburdening to do related to Wars being caused by Jews, but also Gibson was alleged to have called a female deputy "sugar tits".

The Gibson DUI incident was a script written for our particular time in history + it was a fairly unchallenging role for an actor of Gibson's capability to have carried off.
For those who follow,

I would recommend today's (8/3) audio commentary, as I believe Victor Thorn + Lisa Guiliani are a strong voice for getting at the truth about 9/11 + other aspects of the Neocon regimes + it's international infrastructure.

Check it out... Jersey Girls Open Fire on 9/11 Commission (again) Statement Regarding Pentagon's Alleged Deception
Mandate of the 9/11 Commission
The 9/11 Independent Commission was established by law to "... ascertain, evaluate + report on the evidence developed by all relevant governmental agencies regarding the facts and circumstances surrounding the attacks; ..."make a full and complete accounting of the circumstances surrounding the attacks + the extent of the USA' preparedness for + immediate response to, the attacks..."
Recent stories in the Washington Post, the New York Times, as well as the release of the transcripts of the NORAD tapes in Vanity Fair, clearly show that the 9/11 Commission failed in its duties.
According to current reports, the Commission knew that it had been deceived by NORAD.

00.May 2003 representatives of NORAD testified, in full regalia, before the 9/11 Commission equipped with an easel + visual aids to highlight NORAD's timeline for the day of 11.Sep.2001 .

00.Jun.2004 NORAD testified again, changing its previous testimony.

The new timeline blamed the lack of military response on late notification by the FAA.

The Commissioners never determined or explained why there was a discrepancy between the two sets of testimonies.

Governor Kean is quoted in the Washington Post article as saying "we, to this day don't know why NORAD told us what they told us, it was just so far from the truth ...

It's one of those loose ends that never got tied".
The fact that the Commission did not see fit to tie up all loose ends in their final report or to

hold those who came before them accountable for lying +/or making misleading statements puts into question the veracity of the entire Commission's report.

Individuals who came before the Commission to testify, after NORAD's appearance, had no reason to state the truth.

It was abundantly clear that there would be no repercussions for any misrepresentations.
Furthermore, the lack of tenacity and curiosity, by the Commissioners themselves, to determine why NORAD had deceived them is unconscionable.

Knowing full well that the lack of military response was such a critical failure, begs the question of whether that same lack of tenacity + curiosity was applied to other critical areas of the 9/11 investigation.
We fought to establish the 9/11 Independent Commission because we believed that American citizens would be better served if our nation's vulnerabilities were uncovered and then fixed.
Unfortunately, once again the failure to fully + properly investigate all areas, not follow all leads + not address the need for accountability, whether it be bureaucrats lying at a hearing or personnel with questionable performance of assigned duties, continues to leave this Nation + its citizens vulnerable + at risk.
The 9/11 Commission was derelict in its duties.

What we needed from them was a thorough investigation into the events of 11.Sep.2001. Inexcusably, five years later, we still do.

Dear Al Franken, Rachel Maddow, Sam Seder, etc...
You don't have to leave Randi + Malloy hanging out on a limb anymore. Even the co-founder of your network
"gets it";
I really enjoy Countdown with Keith Olbermann. However, yesterday he had Gerald Posner as a guest to evaluate the recently released NORAD tapes on 9/11.

Posner's conclusion was that the audio communications with NORAD proves that this was all about massive incompetence + had nothing to do with any conspiracy .

The tapes clearly showed that everyone was confused + tardy in their responses to the 4 hijackings + that Bush did not give the "shoot down" order until all the airplanes had crashed...
I am a forensic accountant who is trained to "connect dots."

Forensic work is always part science + part instinct.

The ones with the good instincts evaluating empirical data are the best forensic professionals.

People who are in forensic work can only be good if they can be objective about the failure of apparent human instincts such as the perception that the earth is flat.

Proving the earth was round was counterintuitive to our instincts, but proven by science.
All you have to do is read PNAC, The Project For The New American Century.

The writings of the neo-cons in the late 90s conform to the events on 11.Sep.2001 + the necessity of a second "Pearl Harbor" to rally the American people to support the PNAC plan .

Having reviewed the inconsistencies and contradictions of reports on 9/11,

I have concluded that the 19 hijackers were really part of what they believed to be an Al-Qaeda funded operation.

All 19 sincerely believed in what they were doing and the operation probably was funded by a real terrorist group.

However, given the remarkable incompetence of the intelligence agencies and our air defense system, I have concluded that the 19 hijackers had inside help ...
The portrayal of the people on the hijacked planes making cellular phone calls is also a lie. It is impossible to make a private cell phone call when in flight.

Try it some time if you don't believe me.

And there is a myriad of evidence that leads a sensible conclusion that the hijackers had help from the inside + the trail of those who helped should be those who would have benefited ...

The interview is wide-ranging + covers a healthy portion of Tarpley's 9/11 research + opinions, (as embodied in his book "Synthetic Terror" )

as well as background information about Tarpley's prior research into the Aldo Moro murder ( 00.000.1978 ) +

his freely available online book, "George Bush: the Unauthorized Biography", (which you can also buy in an up-to-date paperback form online at Progressive ),

that has been a reference volume for books like "Fortunate Son" + Kevin Phillips'"American Dynasty" (although Phillips' reference is less than kind).

This is great radio, the interview is broken up with live-callers + Malloy asks an excellent series of questions of his own, as well as questions that were emailed in to the show.

Commission Admits: Too Soft on Giuliani False Flag News updated Jersey Girls Open Fire on 9/11 Commission (again)

Air America founder sees "inside help" Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right Malloy interviews Tarpley - 8/3/2006 Commission Admits: Too Soft on Giuliani

Here's my take 9/11 Commission Co-Chairs Kean + Hamilton now admit they were too soft on Giuliani.

Republican Thomas Kean + Democrat Lee Hamilton also say in "Without Precedent" that their panel was too soft in questioning former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani +

that the 20-month investigation may have suffered for it.***
The book states that commission staff, "exceedingly frustrated" by what they thought could be deception, proposed a full review into why the FAA + the Pentagon's NORAD had presented inaccurate information.

That ultimately could have led to sanctions.
Due to a lack of time, the panel ultimately referred the matter to the inspectors general at the Pentagon + Transportation Department. Both are preparing reports, spokesmen said this week.
"Fog of war could explain why some people were confused on the day of 11.Sep.2001, but

it could not explain why all of the after-action reports, accident investigations + public testimony by FAA + NORAD officials advanced an account of 9/11 that was untrue," the book states.
The questioning of Giuliani was considered by Kean and Hamilton "a low point" in the commission's examination of witnesses during public hearings.

"We did not ask tough questions, nor did we get all of the information we needed to put on the public record," they wrote.
Commission members backed off, Kean and Hamilton said, after drawing criticism in newspaper editorials for sharp questioning of New York fire + police officials at earlier hearings.

The editorials said the commission was insensitive to the officials' bravery on the day of the attacks.
"It proved difficult, if not impossible, to raise hard questions about 11.Sep.2001 in New York without it being perceived as criticism of the individual police + firefighters or of Mayor Giuliani," Kean + Hamilton said.***
In their book, which goes on sale 15.Aug.2005 , Kean + Hamilton recap obstacles they say the panel faced in putting out a credible report in a presidential election year, including fights for access to government documents + an effort to reach unanimity. ***

If Cleland had not resigned, the commission probably would not have reached unanimity, according to the book." False Flag News updated

Deutsche Soldaten sollen helfen, demokratische Wahlen in Kongo abzusichern.

Eine edle Aufgabe. Das Eintreten für Demokratie auch im bürgerkriegszerrütteten Afrika.

Nicht ganz so edel aber klingt, was in diesem UNO-Bericht über deutsches Engagement im Kongo geschrieben steht.

Da ist von einer Nürnberger Firma die Rede, die mit gesuchten Kriegsverbrechern paktiert haben soll. Und dies mit Duldung des Deutschen Wirtschaftsministeriums.

Keine einfache Recherche für Thomas Reutter, dessen Film jenseits von Deutschland beginnt."

05.Aug.2006 many have noted, our current military policies constitute a back-door draft. As too few have noted, the draft has a tendency to shift societies to the left. According to one oft-told (but probably apocryphal) anecdote, a British soldier in World War II explained his vote against Churchill with these words: "I went into the army slightly pink and came out bloody red." A couple of decades later, the Vietnam-era draft gave rise to groups like Vietnam Veterans Against the War.

Wenn man schon RFID-Pässe nutze, sagte Grunwald, dann müsse dies auf sichere Weise geschehen. Das sei im Interesse aller. "Ich denke, es sollte nicht möglich sein, Pässe zu kopieren."

Hotelcards ebenfalls unsicher

Ein Vertreter des US-Außenministeriums spielte die in Las Vegas vorgeführte Klontechnik herunter. Es sei lange bekannt gewesen, dass man die Chips kopieren könne. Die Daten auf dem Chip seien ein zusätzliches Mittel, um die Identität des Passbesitzers zu prüfen, aber nicht das einzige.

Wie arglos die RFID-Technik heutzutage benutzt wird, hatte der Hildesheimer Sicherheitsexperte zuvor schon bei Zugangskarten festgestellt, die in Firmen und Hotels als Türschlüssel dienen. Alle von ihm untersuchten Karten ließen sich kopieren. Bei Schlüsselkarten gelang es Grunwald nach eigenen Angaben sogar, aus zwei oder drei normalen Karten eine sogenannte Mastercard zu erstellen, die alle Türen öffnet. Von den zehn verschiedenen untersuchten Hotel-Kartensystemen nutze keines eine Verschlüsselung.

Auch die jüngsten Äußerungen Bushs deuten darauf hin, dass die USA weiterhin eher auf Umsturz von innen hoffen. "Ich fordere das kubanische Volk auf, einen demokratischen Wandel auf der Insel anzustreben", erklärte er gestern. Ähnliche Töne kamen aus dem Kongress: "Wir stehen an eurer Seite", rief der demokratische Senator Bill Nelson die Exilanten in seinem Wahlbezirk auf. "Seid bereit, eure Unabhängigkeit einzufordern!"

Unabhängigkeit - so lange sie nicht die eigenen Gestade erreicht. Marine und Küstenwache, so versicherte der republikanische Senator Mel Martinez jetzt eilig, stünden Gewehr bei Fuß, um "eine Massenwanderung oder einen massenhaften Bootsverkehr durch die Straße von Florida in beide Richtungen" zu verhindern.

Davon können die USA nur träumen. "Für die CIA wird es schwer werden, dem Präsidenten zu versichern, dass sie genau weiß, was passiert, wenn Castro stirbt", schätzt der frühere CIA-Analyst Robert Baer deshalb. "Sie werden sich auf Informationen aus zweiter, dritter Hand verlassen müssen. Wie in den neunziger Jahren im Irak: Da wussten wir auch nicht, was die Generäle um Saddam dachten." Wie kann daraus eine neue Politik entstehen?

Und so schlägt Castro das "Imperium" selbst auf dem Sterbebett noch mit dessen eigenen Waffen. Zehn US-Präsidenten haben sich seit 1959 an ihm die Zähne ausgebissen. Haben seinen Sturz geplant und seine Ermordung, haben versucht, ihn zu isolieren, was ihn nur noch stärkte. Alle machten sie den gleichen Fehler - "eine durchgehende Unterschätzung seiner politischen Stärke", sagt der Kuba-Experte Philip Peters, der Vizepräsident des Lexington Institutes und ein Berater der Cuba Working Group des US-Repräsentantenhauses.

Ob echt oder gefälscht - der Aufruf kursiert nun im Internet, und jeder, der sich angesprochen fühlt, kann nach den darin geforderten Maximen handeln. Für die Zukunft des Libanon verheißt das nichts Gutes.
Deshalb sind zumindest vorsichtige Zweifel an der Authentizität des Dokuments angebracht. Das US-Magazin "CQ" schreibt, der frühere CIA-Mitarbeiter und spätere Enthüllungsjournalist Robert Baer bezweifele, dass al-Qaida im Libanon gegen die Hisbollah kämpfen wolle. Terrorexperte Peter Bergen, der vor dem 11. September Osama bin Laden interviewte, halte die Website dagegen für "sauber". Er erwarte nun in den kommenden Tagen eine klärende Stellungnahme Bin Ladens.

Zwar hatte Chefideologe Zawahiri kürzlich in einem Video anlässlich des Libanon- Kriegs weltweit zu Anschlägen aufgerufen. Allerdings vermied er es fast schon peinlich genau, eine offene Unterstützung der Hisbollah zu fordern. Die Propagandabotschaft blieb dadurch ziemlich blass - al-Qaida steht zumindest vorübergehend weiter im Schatten der Hisbollah.

"Sie hätten die Juden besiegt"

Genau diesen taktischen Rückstand scheinen einige Ideologen des sunnitischen Terrornetzwerks jetzt in eine Erfolgsstrategie umkehren zu wollen.

In einem islamistischen Internet-Forum ist ein längeres Posting aufgetaucht, das von einer bekannten, al-Qaida nahe stehenden Website stammen soll. Das US-amerikanische Magazin "CQ" hatte jüngst über die Botschaft berichtet. Die rund 40-zeilige Stellungnahme der Qaida-Aktivisten liegt SPIEGEL ONLINE vor. Sie bezieht sich explizit auf die gegenwärtigen Ereignisse im Libanon und attackiert die Hisbollah scharf. Diese sei nur ein "Werkzeug der persischen (iranischen, Anm. d. Red.) Regierung" und dürfe daher nicht gefördert werden. "Die Hisbollah und ihren Sieg zu unterstützen würde uns ein großes Problem schaffen", schreiben die Autoren. "Denn das würde die Popularität der Abtrünnigen stärken.

Sie wären die Kraft, die die Juden besiegt hätte + die Zahl der Unterstützer für die Hisbollah würde steigen."

Zwischen 300 und 500 Millionen Menschen erkranken jährlich neu an Malaria. Nach Angaben des Robert-Koch-Instituts fordert die Tropenkrankheit zwischen 1,5 und über 2,5 Millionen Todesopfer im Jahr. Neun von zehn Malariakranken leben in Afrika.

Jetzt haben Wissenschaftler des Hamburger Bernhard-Nocht-Instituts für Tropenmedizin (BNI) und Kollegen aus Frankreich, Brasilien und Deutschland herausgefunden:

Der Malariaparasit reist in einem Trojanischen Pferd durch die Blutbahnen.

In einer Online-Vorabveröffentlichung des Wissenschaftsmagazins "Science" berichten die Forscher, dass die Parasiten in abgetöteten Zellen überleben + so vom Immunsystem nicht erkannt werden.

"Innerhalb weniger Minuten nach dem Mückenstich bohren sich die Malariaerreger in die Gefäßwände der Leber ihres Wirts", erläutert Heussler.

Dort werden in wenigen Tagen aus einem Plasmodium-Parasiten bis zu 40.000. In dieser Zeit hält der Erreger seine Wirtszelle am Leben.

Diese Phase entspricht der Inkubationszeit zwischen dem Stich durch eine malariaverseuchte Anophelesmücke und den ersten Symptomen der Infektion wie Schüttelfrost und Fieber. Will der Erreger dann zurück in die Blutbahn, tötet er seine Wirtszelle.

Wer nicht erkannt wird, wird auch nicht gefressen

Nach Angaben des Roten Kreuzes sind in diesem Sommer allein an den Küsten der spanischen Provinz Katalonien über 10.000 Menschen wegen Quallenverletzungen behandelt worden.

An manchen Stränden sei das Baden verboten worden. Vor allem die Leuchtqualle Pelagia noctiluca tauchte in Massen auf, berichtete der ADAC auf seiner Homepage.

Bis zu 100 der glibberigen Nesseltiere unter jedem Quadratmeter Wasseroberfläche seien keine Seltenheit gewesen.

Forscher wissen nicht genau, wie es zu der Plage kam. Sie glauben aber, dass die hohe Wassertemperatur eine der Hauptursachen ist.

Im vergangenen Monat, der auch in Deutschland der heißeste Juli seit Beginn der Temperaturaufzeichnungen war, habe sich das Mittelmeer "dramatisch" erwärmt, teilt die Europäische Raumfahrtbehörde Esa mit.

Die Mitarbeiter des Projekts "Medspiration" beobachten ständig, wie sich die Wassertemperatur an der fast drei Millionen Quadratkilometer großen Oberfläche des Mittelmeers verändert.

In 18 Tagen stieg die Temperatur drastisch

08.Jul.2006 -war die Wasseroberfläche im östlichen Mittelmeer zwischen 22 und 26 Grad Celsius warm. Keine drei Wochen später, am

26.Jul.2006 zeigte die Esa-Hitzekarte fast überall Temperaturen von 28, stellenweise sogar 30 Grad.

RIAA Goes after LimeWire Zonk 52 PCM2 writes

"A coalition of major recording companies sued the operators of the file-sharing program LimeWire for copyright infringement Friday, claiming the firm encourages users to trade music without permission." From thge article: " The case is the first piracy lawsuit brought against a distributor of file-sharing software since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that technology companies could be sued for copyright infringement on the grounds that they encouraged customers to steal music and movies over the Internet. In the complaint, the record companies contend LimeWire's operators are "actively facilitating, encouraging and enticing" computer users to steal music by failing to block access to copyright works and building a business model that allows them to profit directly from piracy.

Fish, corals and marine mammals are dying while algae, bacteria and jellyfish are growing unchecked. Where this pattern is most pronounced, scientists evoke a scenario of evolution running in reverse, returning to the primeval seas of hundreds of millions of years ago. Jeremy B.C.
