No.4 Tully Construction
When contacted by the American Free Press (AFPN) and asked, if they ever had seen concrete pulverized as it was in the WTC, they said: "No-never". "
Tully said, that there were hot spots where he observed 'literally molten steel'...
Everything that was above grade -above the 6th and 7th floor -disintegrated...it was like an explosion" (AFPN/08/26/02)
"We had 75 trucks leaving a day during the first few days," says Tully. https://184.108.40.206/search?q=cache:WJOS-g-IM5oC:www.enr.com/news/enrbld_092401.asp+&hl=en&ie=UTF-8
A lot of conspiracy sites talk about "sequential collapse" as if there were explosive charges placed on every floor detonated in sequence, like the destruction of the Empire State Building in Independence Day.
But controlled demolitions don't do that - they use a small amount of explosives and let the weight of the building do the rest.
Thirty-story buildings have been brought down with only a few hundred pounds of explosives.

Gebiss: Forscher haben Stammzellen im Zahnbett gefunden, die sich zu Haltegewebe entwickeln können
Nun ist es Forschern von der Universität Witten/Herdecke offenbar gelungen, Stammzellen aus erkranktem Zahnhaltegewebe von Patienten mit Parodontitis zu isolieren.
Dabei handelt es sich um eine Infektion in der Mundhöhle, die langsam den Halteapparat der Zähne zerstört.
Der Biochemiker Darius Widera vom Institut für Neurobiochemie der Universität sagte,
Laborversuche hätten bewiesen, dass diese Zellen die Fähigkeit hätten, sich sowohl in Nervenzellen zu differenzieren als auch in Knochen- und Gewebe-Zellen des Zahnhalteapparates.
Ihre Ergebnisse wollen die Forscher in der April-Ausgabe des Fachjournals "Stem Cells and Development" veröffentlichen.

"President Bush said yesterday that he is "pretty much going to stay out of" the case of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby
until the legal process has run its course, deflecting pressure from supporters of the former White House aide to pardon him for perjury and obstruction of justice."
This is not deflecting pressure at all.
It is, basically, supporting BuzzFlash's contention that Bush will hope that partisan GOP hack judges, like David Sentelle, will overturn the conviction on appeal.
If not, then, when the legal process has "run its course," Bush will pardon Libby.
No doubt about it.
But the word is already in, you can be sure, to GOP loyalists on the federal bench to overturn the conviction and save Bush the political embarrassment of a pardon. 3/8

Comparing flashbulb memories of September 11 and the death of Princess Diana: effects of time delays and nationality

University of Hertfordshire, UK email: Lia Kvavilashvili (L.Kvavilashvili@herts.ac.uk)

This study examines flashbulb memories of a salient recent and a distant public event to assess patterns of forgetting in the formal characteristics of these memories.
Memories of a recent event (September 11) were compared to memories of a distant event (the death of Princess Diana) in several samples of British and one sample of Italian participants.
In British participants, the 51-month old memories of the death of Princess Diana were as detailed and specific as their memories of a 3-month old event, September 11.
Moreover, their memories of Princess Diana were not different from memories of September 11 collected immediately or very soon after September 11 in two other groups of British participants.
Results suggest that flashbulb memories of a distant public event can be as detailed, specific and vivid as memories of a very recent event.
For Italian participants, however, flashbulb memory scores for September 11 were reliably higher than for the death of Princess Diana.
There was also a small albeit reliable loss of specificity in British participants' memories of September 11 over the subsequent three months.

Pic of reports generated. John Gross had been asked to come speak at the University of Texas at Austin by the Phil. M. Ferguson fund
- he was responsible for the Structural Fire Response and Collapse aspects of the NIST World Trade Center Investigation.
A University of Texas 9/11 Truth student organization called A Project for the New American Citizen was there to ask questions and film his response.
It was posted today on You Tube here
There has been little opportunity for public questioning of major (or minor because people like fireman are forbidden to talk to the pRes etc.,) figures who support
one of the lead engineers of the NIST report is questioned
about the existence of molten steel at the WTC building, the collapse of Building 7 +
also explains how the NIST report did not do any analysis of the collapse of all three buildings.
This guy says he has seen no evidence, no eyewitnesses, no reports of molten steel +
no he hasn't seen the NASA thermal images + hopes the questioner will send them to him.
Which is curious considering the answer the NIST give to FAQ's about their work.See Here
He looks a respectable guy, he's smart, well fed, evidently educated yet he is lying in his fucking teeth ...why ?

07.Mar.2007 Domenici hires Duke Cunningham’s lawyer. - Nico -
Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) has “hired a top defense attorney to handle the pending ethics investigation into allegations that he pressured a federal prosecutor to bring indictments against New Mexico Democrats on the eve of the 2006 elections.” His choice: “Lee Blalack, who recently represented former congressman Randy ‘Duke’ Cunningham (R-CA), who is now serving time in prison for bribery and other offenses,” and who was prosecuted by purged U.S. Attorney Carol Lam.
07.Mar.2007 Libby is a ‘martyr of the war party.’ - Amanda -
Pat Buchanan: “The conviction of Scooter Libby on four counts of perjury and obstruction of justice is first of all a human tragedy.
A man who served his country at the highest level, who sat in every morning at the senior staff meeting in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, has been dishonored and disgraced + will be disbarred.
Unless his conviction is overturned, or he is pardoned, Libby will go to prison. His life will end with an obituary that declares in its headline and lead paragraph that he was a convicted Dick Cheney aide.”
07.Mar.2007 Senior Bush Official May Have Violated Law Trying To Block Pelosi From Appearing At Event - Nico -
House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) has uncovered more potentially illegal activity by the head of the General Services Administration, Lorita Doan.
Waxman has discovered that Doan “used a January 2007 teleconference to ask senior GSA officials to help ‘our candidates’ in the next elections through targeted public events, such as the opening of federal facilities around the country.” Doan discussed with GSA officials “how to exclude House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from an upcoming courthouse opening in San Francisco and how to include Republican Senator Mel Martinez.” Doan’s activity is now being investigated as a potential violation of the Hatch Act, which prohibits partisan campaign activities on federal property.
Doan’s inappropriate (and potentially illegal) behavior extends beyond partisan hackery. Last summer, Doan signed a $20,000 no-bid contract for a 24-page report “promoting GSA’s use of minority- and women-owned businesses.”
Doan made the deal with a firm called Diversity Best Practices, headed by Edie Fraser. Waxman has discovered that Doan “had a long-standing business relationship with Ms. Fraser that has not been disclosed previously. Moreover, “Fraser used her professional connections to advance Doan’s nomination to GSA and to provide personal favors, and…Ms. Fraser continued to provide services with the expectation of payment to Ms. Doan after she became GSA Administrator.”
Waxman released an email from Fraser to Doan on 9/6/06:
Lurita, I will do anything for you and will do for the rest of my life… But I have spent so much time at GSA from the report planning to these sessions with ZERO $$. How do we solve
Fraser’s $20,000 contract was eventually canceled because, at the time, GSA contracts worth more than $2,500 had to be competitively bid. But Doan wouldn’t go down without a fight. According to Waxman, Doan pushed her staff “behind the scenes to find a way to award the contract to Ms. Fraser,” even suggesting “that if GSA were to make the contract available through a competitive bid, Ms. Fraser could write the ‘Statement of Work’ describing the award for which her company would be competing.”
More details HERE and HERE. Doan will appear before the oversight committee on March 20.

StopIranWar.com released its second in a series of video blogs today warning against a military strike on Iran. In the new release, Iraq war veteran Jon Soltz says, “You really can’t support striking Iran and support the troops in the field, because all you’re doing is making an extremely difficult mission that’s almost impossible right now, pure military force, more complex by striking Iran.” Clark adds that the mission of U.S. troops after a strike on Iran would be simple — “It’ll be about survival.” Watch it:
07.Mar.2007 McClellan On Libby Verdict: White House Needs To ‘Get Out There And Talk About This’ - Think Progress -
Last night on Larry King Live, former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan echoed Joseph Wilson’s call for the Bush administration to finally come clean about their actions in the CIA leak case. “I would be advising the White House to get out there and find some way to talk about this,” McClellan said.
While serving in the White House, McClellan orchestrated the White House’s stonewall on the leak story. Time and again, he claimed he could not answer questions about “an ongoing investigation,” even when the questions were unrelated to the investigation.
McClellan claimed last night that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby had lied to him. “Knowing what I know today, I would have never said that back then,” McClellan said, referring to the assurance he gave the public that Rove and Libby were not involved.
McClellan didn’t talk about this quote, leaving it to the current Press Secretary to explain it:
If anyone in this administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this administration.
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said yesterday that the White House will continue its “principled stand” of not commenting on the leak issue. Transcript: (more…)

07.Mar.2007 The world’s “most famous freshman congressman.” - Payson -
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who two months ago became the first Muslim sworn into Congress, “has plans to meet with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other top State Department officials to talk about showcasing his story as part of their public diplomacy efforts in the Muslim world.” Already, the State Department’s overseas press bureau has profiled Ellison three times. “I’m willing to do whatever I can to make some friends for America,” Ellison said. “It’s a very positive development,” said Voice of America’s Faiz Rehman, a native of Pakistan. “He is the most famous freshman congressman in the world.”
07.Mar.2007 Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA) Pressured Former U.S. Attorney In Federal Investigation - Amanda -
Today, John McKay, the former U.S. attorney in Washington, revealed to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Rep. Doc Hastings’s (R-WA) office contacted him and attempted to pressure him in an ongoing investigation.
Shortly after the 2004 elections, McKay received a call from Ed Cassidy, Hastings’s chief of staff, on behalf of the congressman. Cassidy was inquiring about McKay’s investigation of voter fraud in the hotly contested 2004 gubernatorial election, which had been certified in favor of the Democratic candidate. McKay said that Cassidy asked him about “future action” in the case, but ended the call “in a most expeditious fashion” when McKay pointed out that it is “improper” for a lawmaker to lobby a U.S. attorney on an ongoing investigation. Watch it:
House rules prohibit members “from contacting executive or agency officials regarding the merits of matters under their formal consideration.” Nevertheless, Cassidy now advises House Minority Leader John Boehner on congressional ethics.
Earlier today, the former U.S. attorney for New Mexico David Iglesias also publicly detailed how Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) and Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) pressured him in an investigation. UPDATE: TPM has more. Transcript: (more…)
07.Mar.2007 Fitzgerald Speaks Out On Libby Verdict - Faiz -
At his post-verdict press conference, special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald said Libby had “lied and obstructed justice in a serious matter. The results are actually sad. It’s sad that we had a situation where a high-level official — a person who worked in the office of the Vice President — obstructed justice and lied under oath. We wish that had not happened.”
Fitzgerald added, “it’s not the verdict that justifies the investigation, it’s the facts.”
The Nation’s David Corn asked Fitzgerald to comment on his previous courtroom assertion that, “There is a cloud over the vice president…There is a cloud over the White House.” Fitzgerald responded that “the fact that there was a cloud over anyone was not our doing, it was the facts of the case, [and] it was aggravated by Mr. Libby telling falsehoods.” Watch it:
UPDATE: White House spokeswoman Dana Perino says the White House will continue its “principled stand” of not commenting:
PERINO: I know that there’s going to be a lot of disappointment with this, but there is an ongoing criminal proceeding. Scooter Libby’s attorneys just announced that they are going to ask for a new trial + that they are going to, failing that, they would appeal the verdict. And so our principled stand of not commenting on ongoing legal investigations is going to continue. UPDATE II: Fmr. Ambassador Joseph Wilson on MSNBC’s Countdown and ’s Larry King Live tonight.
07.Mar.2007 BREAKING: Libby Guilty On Four Of Five Counts - Think Progress -
Scooter Libby has been found guilty on four out of five counts:
Count 1 - Obstruction of Justice: Libby intentionally deceived the grand jury about how he learned + “disclosed to the media,” information about Valerie Plame Wilson’s employment by the CIA.
Count 2 - Making a False Statement: Libby intentionally gave FBI agents false information about a conversation he had with NBC’s Tim Russert regarding Valerie Plame Wilson, who is married to Joseph Wilson.
Count 4 - Perjury: Libby knowingly provided false testimony in court about a conversation he had with Russert.
Count 5 - Perjury: Libby knowingly provided false testimony in court about his conversation with reporters regarding Valerie Plame Wilson’s CIA employment.
Libby was found not guilty on count 3, a charge that he gave false statements to the FBI about his conversation with Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper.
UPDATE: Fox News reports from inside the courtroom: “Scooter Libby had a rather sad, resigned smile on his face. The kind of smile you get from resignation, not happiness, obviously.”
UPDATE II: Washington Post: “Under federal sentencing guidelines, Libby faces a probable prison term of 1 1/2 to three years when he is sentenced by U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton. … As the jury forewoman read each guilty count in a clear, solemn voice, Libby was impassive, remaining seated at the defense table, gazing straight ahead and displaying no visible emotion.”
UPDATE III: Fox news legal analyst Andrew Napolitano spins the verdict for the defense, arguing that there is a basis for Libby’s defense counsel to say the jury “misunderstood the nature of the charges” and was “hopelessly confused.” Watch it:
UPDATE IV: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) calls on President Bush to pledge not to pardon Libby:
I welcome the jury’s verdict. It’s about time someone in the Bush Administration has been held accountable for the campaign to manipulate intelligence and discredit war critics.
Lewis Libby has been convicted of perjury, but his trial revealed deeper truths about Vice President Cheney’s role in this sordid affair.
Now President Bush must pledge not to pardon Libby for his criminal conduct.
UPDATE V: Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says the problem is not just Libby.
Today’s guilty verdicts are not solely about the acts of one individual.
This trial provided a troubling picture of the inner workings of the Bush Administration.
The testimony unmistakably revealed — at the highest levels of the Bush Administration — a callous disregard in handling sensitive national security information and a disposition to smear critics of the war in Iraq.

"Moon dust could be a source of oxygen and metals. But moon dust could also lodge in astronauts' lungs, possibly triggering long-term health effects. During the relatively short Apollo Moon landing missions nearly 40 years ago, astronauts reported difficulty breathing. So now, before astronauts return to the moon 00.000.2020, NASA is working on a number of ways to reduce the amount of lunar dust astronauts are exposed to — from simple grates on the floor to magnetic wands and giant lint rollers."
07.Mar.2007 Source Control For Bills In Congress? - kdawson 267 Comments grepya writes
"An article in Slate talks about the sneaky way a major change in the Patriot Act reauthorization bill was made by (possibly) a Congressional staffer without even his boss knowing about it. (The change increased the power of the Executive at the expense of the other two branches of government.) Now, I write software for a large and complex system containing millions of lines of code and I know that nobody could slip a single line of code into my project without my knowledge. This is because everything that goes into the build goes into a source control system + email notification is generated to interested parties. This is for a body of work that affects perhaps a few hundred thousand people at most (our company and the combined population of all our customer organizations). Shouldn't the same process be applied to bills being debated in national legislatures that affect potentially hundreds of millions of people?"

From the article: "Civil libertarians are especially concerned about the sweeping authority given to participating countries to seize information from private parties as they investigate cybercrimes, even when the activity being investigated isn't a crime in the country where the data is located... Telecommunications companies object to provisions that require member countries to establish and enforce potent data-retention policies for network traffic + require any operator of a computer network to respond to requests for information from any participating country without compensation of any kind...
The provisions for data retention and production apply to any operator of a computer network, not just telecoms... Worldwide law-enforcement agencies, in other words, may now avail themselves of the opportunity to outsource their most expensive problems to you."
07.Mar.2007 In France, Only Journalists Can Film Violence - kdawson 419+ Comments BostonBTS sends word that the French Constitutional Council has just made it illegal to film violence unless you are a professional journalist (or to distribute a video containing violence).
The law was approved exactly 16 years after amateur videographer George Holliday filmed Los Angeles police officers beating Rodney King. The Council was tidying up a body of law about offenses against the public order + wanted to ban "happy slapping." A charitable reading would be that the lawmakers stumbled into unintended consequences. Not according to Pascal Cohet, a spokesman for French online civil liberties group Odebi: "The broad drafting of the law so as to criminalize the activities of citizen journalists unrelated to the perpetrators of violent acts is no accident, but rather a deliberate decision by the authorities, said [Cohet]. He is concerned that the law + others still being debated, will lead to the creation of a parallel judicial system controlling the publication of information on the Internet."

Another purged prosecutor. Former federal prosecutor Thomas DiBiagio said yesterday that “he was forced out in early 2005 because of political pressure stemming from public corruption investigations involving associates” of Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R-MD). “There was direct pressure not to pursue these investigations,” DiBiagio said.
The White House plans to ask Congress for $2 billion more for President Bush’s escalation plan, an “embarrassing” move for the White House and the Pentagon, “which earlier dismissed criticism from lawmakers that the original $5.6 billion estimate for the troop buildup was too low.”
Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) admitted yesterday that she contacted former U.S. attorney David Iglesias “to complain about the pace of his public corruption investigations.”
Iglesias has said that he was fired because he resisted pressure from Wilson and Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) to speed up an investigation against Democrats before the 2006 elections.

07.Mar.2007 REPORT: Air Strikes Against Iran Would Accelerate Nuclear Weapons Development - Faiz -
Conservatives such as AEI’s Joshua Muravchik have argued that a targeted air strike “would not end Iran’s weapons program, but it would certainly delay it.” Similarly, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton promoted the concept of air strikes, saying, “I don’t think the military option, with respect to the Iranian nuclear program, would involve forces on the ground. I think it would involve the destruction of the nuclear facilities. And that can be done in a variety of other ways.”
In a new study, the British-based Oxford Research Group reports that military strikes on Iran “could accelerate rather than halt Tehran’s production of atomic weapons.” “If Iran is moving towards a nuclear weapons capacity, it is doing so relatively slowly,” the report says. But in the report’s introduction, former chief U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix warns that “armed attacks on Iran would very likely lead to the result they were meant to avoid — the building of nuclear weapons within a few years.” A key portion of the report:
If Iran’s nuclear facilities were severely damaged during an attack, it is possible that Iran could embark on a crash programme to make one nuclear weapon. In the aftermath of a military strike, if Iran devoted maximum effort and resources to building one nuclear bomb, it could achieve this in a relatively short amount of time: some months rather than years. The argument that military strikes would buy time is flawed. It does not take into account the time already available to pursue diplomacy; it inflates the likelihood of military success and underplays the possibility of hardened Iranian determination leading to a crash nuclear programme. Post military attacks, it is possible that Iran would be able to build a nuclear weapon and would then wield one in an environment of incalculably greater hostility.
It is a mistake to believe that Iran can be deterred from attaining a nuclear weapons capability by bombing its facilities + presumably continuing to do so should Iran then reconstitute its programme.
The Washington Post reported last year that the administration was “studying options for military strikes against Iran.” Joint Chiefs Chairman Peter Pace “categorically” denied that the U.S. is planning for such operations. But media reports have indicated preparations for an air strike against Iran are reportedly “at an advanced stage, in spite of repeated public denials by the Bush administration.” Digg It!
UPDATE: The Center for American Progress’s Iran strategy, “Contain and Engage,” notes, “After a U.S. military strike some countries might even decide that it is in their interests to help Iran acquire nuclear weapons. Russia, for instance, might regard U.S. military action in Iran as destabilizing and damaging to its national security and seek to counter U.S. power in the region by strengthening its relationship with Iran.”

07.Mar.2007 Washington Post Editorial Board Spits Out Baseless Right-Wing Talking Points On Libby Verdict - Faiz -
In a substance-less diatribe, the Washington Post editorial board this morning tried its best to downplay the significance of the Scooter Libby verdict. Here’s a fact-check on some of the Post’s most absurd claims:
CLAIM: Libby’s guilty verdict was “propelled not by actual wrongdoing.”
FACT: The Post Editorial Board Highlighted The ‘Seriousness’ Of Perjury Charges Against Clinton. In a Jan. 22, 1998 editorial, the Washington Post write, “The allegations against President Clinton are allegations of extremely serious crimes. … Subornation of perjury is a federal crime punishable by up to five years in prison.” On Feb. 2, 1998, the Post wrote that the “seriousness” of the charges against Clinton had “to do much more with possible perjury than with sex.” And on Dec. 13, 1998, the Post wrote: “There is no question that President Clinton committed grave offenses and aggravated them by refusing to acknowledge either the offenses themselves or their seriousness.”
CLAIM: Calling it a “sensational charge,” the Post writes that there was “no evidence that [Plame] was, in fact, covert.”
FACT: CIA, Former Colleagues + Special Prosecutor All Report That Plame Was Covert. The CIA filed a “crime report” with the Department of Justice shortly after Novak’s column, stating that an undercover agent’s identity had been blown. Larry Johnson, a former CIA officer, said “Valerie Plame was a classmate of mine from the day she started with the CIA. … All of my classmates were undercover.” Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald found that Plame had indeed done “covert work overseas” on counterproliferation matters in the past five years + the CIA “was making specific efforts to conceal” her identity.
CLAIM: The Post claims that senior White House officials had not “orchestrated the leak” and that the trial “provided convincing evidence that there was no conspiracy to punish Mr. Wilson by leaking Ms. Plame’s identity.”
FACT: Cheney’s Point-man — Libby — Carefully Leaked Plame’s Identity To Reporters, White House Staff. In an article published on Jan. 26, 2007, Post writers reported “Vice President Cheney personally orchestrated his office’s 2003 efforts to rebut allegations that the administration used flawed intelligence to justify the war in Iraq.” As of that effort, handwritten notes prove that Cheney assigned Libby to be the point man for disseminating the information about Plame’s identity, which he revealed to reporters Judith Miller and Matt Cooper. Libby also enrolled Ari Fleischer and Karl Rove in his effort to disseminate Plame’s identity.
CLAIM: “It would have been sensible for Mr. Fitzgerald to end his investigation after learning about Mr. Armitage. Instead, like many Washington special prosecutors before him, he pressed on, pursuing every tangent in the case.”
FACT: Armitage told the truth; Libby refused to. Indeed, it was “sensible” for Fitzgerald to pursue Libby and question why the Vice President’s chief of staff could not tell him the truth, while Armitage could.
The Post editorial concludes: “The Wilson-Plame case + Mr. Libby’s conviction, tell us nothing about the war in Iraq.” This naïve comment is hardly surprising, coming from a publication that bought the false Iraq intelligence that Cheney, Libby + company were trying so hard to sell prior to the war. More distressing, however, is that the Post has been an accomplice in the White House’s effort to cover up what it knew.
Contact the Washington Post ombudsman to inform them of the factual inaccuracies in their editorial.

Allerdings müssen die Asteroidenjäger demnächst wohl auf eines ihrer bisher wichtigsten Instrumente verzichten: das berühmte Arecibo-Radioteleskop in Puerto Rico, das aus Geldmangel bald geschlossen werden soll. "Das ist eine Katastrophe für die Wissenschaft", sagte Lowry im Gespräch mit SPIEGEL ONLINE. Die beiden Studien in "Nature" und "Science" hätten gezeigt, dass Radarmessungen "große Auswirkungen auf die Asteroidenforschung haben". Insbesondere für die Bestimmung der Form und der Flugbahn von Asteroiden seien Radardaten "äußerst wertvoll".
Als Kaasalainen und seine Kollegen Daten über den 1932 entdeckten Asteroiden "1862 Apollo" aus den Jahren 1980, 1982, 1998 und 2005 auswerteten, entdeckten sie, dass sich dessen Rotationsgeschwindigkeit messbar verändert hatte. Aktuell benötigt der Himmelskörper, dessen Durchmesser rund 1,4 Kilometer beträgt, etwas mehr als drei Stunden für eine Drehung um sich selbst und 1,78 Jahre für eine vollständige Reise um die Sonne.

28.Apr..2005 13:21 220.127.116.11 IRAN-CONTRA CONNECTIONS TO 9/11 - PART 3 -Research by Alex Constantine
The Sultan of Brunei (and Elliot Abrams, current National Security Council special assistant for democracy, human rights and international operations):
Another Iran-Contra conspirator is Elliot Abrams?.
As the Assistant Secretary of State during the Reagan-Bush administration, Abrams was charged with contempt of Congress by Iran-contra Special Prosecutor Lawrence Walsh
after evading questions about Oliver North's secret mission to extract 10 million dollars from the Sultan of Brunei +
about the Contra supply plane shot down.
Abrams gave the Sultan of Brunei the number of the bank account owned by InterMaritime Bank president, Bruce Rappaport, a golfing friend of then CIA director, William Casey.
General Secord was the subsequent recipient of the $10 million cash, which was used for distribution to the contras.
Elliot Abrams, the current National Security Advisor, earlier had pleaded guilty for withholding information from Congress +
00.000.1992 Elliot Abrams, the current National Security Advisor,was pardoned by the former President Bush. https://www.whale.to/b/rivers.html
The Bush-Bin Laden Cartel
BCCI funded Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan?s fight against the Soviet Union +
BCCI helped fund operations in the Iran-Contra, guns for drugs affair which also tied in with Central America during the elder Bush's Vice Presidency.
00.000.1981-00.000.1989 Bush Sr. was US Vice President.
00.000.1986 G.W. Bush, son of then Vice president G.H.W. Bush, merged his Arbusto Energy company with Harken Energy Corp.
Saudi Sheik Abdullah Taha Bakhsh then bought into the company, buying 17.6%.
The Saudi Sheik was associated with Khalid bin Mahfouz, who
00.000.1988 -when Salem Bin Ladin died- Khalid bin Mahfouz inherited Salem Bin Ladin's interest.
From several different angles, the Bush family was tied to the Bin Laden family, passing finances back + forth, making G.W. Bush an indirect financier of Osama Bin Ladin.
00.000.1999 Mahfouz reportedly attempted to transfer $3 million to Osama? https://www.rense.com/general30/cart.htm
John Singlaub, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, William Casey, King Fahd:
"Many of those involved in the Reagan Administration?s war against Nicaragua shared a common desire to consolidate support for right-wing guerillas....
"Gen. John Singlaub set up committees within the World Anti-Communist League for eight different guerilla groups ...
Singlaub also drafted a memo outlining a contra international of sorts with its own arms company, financed by a series of technology transfers among Israel + South Africa + China.
Once this flow of technology was in place, they wrote,
?The USA then has at its disposal a large + continuous supply of Soviet technology + weapons to channel to Freedom Fighters worldwide.? ... [The Singlaub memo] was later found in Oliver North?s safe.
"Even the Saudis got into the act, with a proposal to establish offshore companies to serve a multiplicity of purposes.
Palestinian-American businessman Sam Bamieh says he was approached by Prince Bandar bin Sultan, Saudi Arabia?s ambassador to the USA +
at a separate time, by a member of the embassy?s staff +
asked "to set up a company, an offshore company, whereby we will supply goods + services to different anti-communist movements in different parts of the world."...
"Bamieh said that the offshore company would buy the oil from Saudi Arabia - which nominally adheres to the UN oil embargo against the apartheid regime - +
resell it to South Africa at a markup of 75 cents to one dollar a barrel.
He said while
00.Feb.1984 he was discussing this with Bandar in Cannes Bandar sought to reassure him it was in line with U.S. policy by telling him that
CIA Director Casey + King Fahd were at that very moment discussing the same topic in a yacht in the Mediterranean [Adnan Khashoggi?s, perhaps?]. (This was later confirmed.)
Bamieh said he refused the request, even though Bandar told him such a company could make $50 to $100 million in annual profits."
00.Sep.1988-00.Oct.1988 , p. 15.Jane Hunter, "Tricontranental," Report on the Americas.
Mohammed Zia al-Haq, Pakistani Prime Minister:
"Dictator of Pakistan + knew all about Iran/Contra, the training, funding + arming of narco-terrorists like Osama bin Laden.
00.Aug.1988 , the same day George Bush got the Republican nomination, his plane crashed into the ground with all engines running.
The Pakistanis kept the bodies around (in violation of Islamic custom) ..." https://bushbodycount.com/voices/thelist.php?catid=24&blogid=4
"Ejaz al-Haq, Zia?s eldest son, has launched a barrage of allegations about a cover-up.
Generally, his target has been the Bhutto government, but at a news conference earlier this week he blamed the USA ..." -
"50,000 Pakistanis Mark Anniversary of Ruler Zia?s Death," Orange County Register, 18.Aug.1989 .
"Sabotage or another criminal act caused a plane crash that killed President Mohammed Zia al-Haq.... About 30 people aboard the plane were killed, including U.S. Ambassador Arnold Raphel;
Brig. Gen. Herbert Wasson, a U.S. defense adviser + five top Pakistani generals ...
Among the scenarios, [Pakistan Air Force Commander Abbas] Mirza suggested were that the flight crew was drugged ..."
- Kathy Gannon, "Sabotage caused crash of Zia plane, report says," AP, October 17, 1989.
Slade Gorton, 911 Commissioner (revisited):
"Former Senator Slade Gorton served on the notorious Senate Intelligence Committee for over a decade.
Throughout his career, over scores of ?hearings?, the hawkish Gorton consistently ran interference for Iran-Contra-smeared Republicans, such as Robert Gates..."https://www.williambowles.info/911/911_coverup.html
Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense:
"911, CIA Drug Traffic, Iran-contra, ISI, Daniel Pearl?" - Online Journal "...
Then there is Baron Rumsfeld over at DoD, who seemed to dart around like a bee pollinating CBW (chemical and biological weapons) to Saddam under the Reagan administration, being part of Iran-Contra, planning + practicing the invasion of Afghanistan
00.000.2001 -in early- well in advance of 9-11, attacking on
07.Oct.2001 , to get rid of those silly Taliban folks + immediately after 9-11 wanted to start planning to go kick Saddam really good." https://www.criticalhistory.com/index.php?itemid=467
Charles M. McKee and Matthew Gannon
"Charles M. McKee, ostensibly a military attach? for the DIA in Beirut, Matthew Gannon, CIA Deputy Station Chief in Beirut + three others were on board Pan Am Flight 103, which exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland.
They were part of a counterterrorist team in Beirut investigating the possible rescue of 9 American hostages in Lebanon.
The McKee team uncovered evidence that a rogue CIA unit called COREA, based in Wiesbaden, was doing business with a man called Monzer Al-Kassar, a Syrian arms dealer + drug trafficker.
"Al-Kassar was part of the covert network run by U.S. Lieut. Colonel Oliver North.
Outraged that the COREA unit in Wiesbaden was doing business with a Syrian who had close terrorist connections + might endanger their chances of rescuing the hostages,
the McKee team decided to fly back to Virginia unannounced and expose the COREA unit's secret deal with al-Kassar.
They never got there.
?For three years, I've had a feeling that if Chuck hadn't been on that plane, it wouldn't have been bombed,? said Beulah McKee, 75, Charles McKee's mother, to Time Magazine.
Four months after her son was killed for his efforts to expose the CIA, Mrs. McKee received a sympathy letter from George H. W. Bush.
Mrs. McKee has never been satisfied with the government's version of events." https://bushbodycount.com/voices/thelist.php?catid=24&blogid=4
Senator Henry John Heinz III
"He chaired the three-man presidential review board that probed the Iran-contra affair.
00.Apr.1991 He died in a plane crash ..." https://bushbodycount.com/voices/thelist.php?catid=24&blogid=4
Israel, Jonas Savimbi, Unita, Saudis:
00.000.1982 began training a 5,000-man Zairian unit in Shaba proince that was to be stationed along the border with Angola,
is well-positioned to take over adising Unita should the U.S. public eer force Congress to halt aid, as it did 00.000.1975 + more recently with the contras.
As one of the major right-wing guerilla armies still in the field,
Unita is almost certain to attract the covert action funds Saudi Arabia continues to wish to bestow upon Washington.
In addition to wateer Saudi funds he may be receiving, Jonas Savimbi gets $75 million in South African aid.
And though ?the Enterprise? has been put out of business, the fronts run by retired military + intelligence officers that competed to sell arms to the contras are still open for business to supply Unita." - Jane Hunter, "Honduras All Over Again," Report on the Americas, September-October 1988, p. 24.
Jeb Bush, governor of Florida + Khashoggi:
Bush "spent most of his time in the early and mid-1980s hobnobbing with ex-Cuban intelligence officers, Nicaraguan Contras + others plugged into the lucrative orbit of Miami-area front groups for the CIA.
But he, too, had some Middle East connections.
Two of his business associates, Guillermo Hernandez-Cartaya + Camilo Padreda, both indicted for financial dealings,
were longtime associates of Middle Eastern arms dealer, BCCI investor + Iran-Contra figure Adnan Khashoggi.
Prosecutors dropped the case against the two + a federal judge ordered Padreda's name expunged from the record.
But a few years later Padreda, a former Miami-Dade County GOP treasurer, was convicted of fraud over a federally insured housing development that Jeb Bush had helped to facilitate.
Jeb Bush also socialized with Adbur Sakhia, the Miami BCCI branch chief + later its top U.S. Official. https://www.lagunajournal.com/global.htm
Michael Ledeen, advisor to Carl Rove:
"September 01, 2004 - Ledeen has been branded an 'ultra neo-conservative' and is seen by his critics as the most sinister and radical of them all. He is a scholar at the neo-conservative think tank The American Enterprise Institute, which also counts the former chair of Pentagon Defence Policy Board Richard Perle among its members.
"He also writes regularly for American Spectator magazine. A former Rome Correspondent for the New Republic newspaper, Ledeen first rose to political prominence as a member of the National Security Council during Ronald Reagan's reign.
"But it was 00.000.1985, that he became a well-known figure in the US when his Israeli intelligence contacts were used to help broker the illegal Iran/contra rebel affair - a move was aimed at destablising the left-wing government in Nicaragua.
"However, he does say that he didn't approve of the final deal in that affair.
Prof Ledeen is also a student of Machiavelli and has written a book about the Renaissance philosopher whose name has become synonymous with strong and brutal governments. He is also the author of The War Against the Terror Masters, which claims that America must topple the regimes of the terror masters such as Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia to eliminate the threat of terrorism.
"Prof Ledeen is also believed to have the ear of the White House's current Chief of Staff Karl Rove + has regular conversations with him. His view on the war on terror is clear, he said: "Iraq is just one battle in a larger war, bringing down the regime in Iran is the central act, because Iran is the world's most dangerous terrorist country."

Wilson hatte der US-Regierung im Sommer 2003 in einem Gastbeitrag für die "New York Times" vorgeworfen, zur Rechtfertigung des Irak-Kriegs fragwürdige Geheimdienstinformationen genutzt zu haben. Acht Tage später wurde seine Frau in einem Artikel des Journalisten Robert Novak als CIA-Agentin enttarnt.
Der in der Öffentlichkeit wenig bekannte Stabschef von Vizepräsident Cheney war als Figur im Hintergrund an praktisch allen folgenreichen Entscheidungen des Weißen Hauses der vergangenen Jahre beteiligt - auch an den Weichenstellungen für den Irak-Krieg. Sein Sturz und der Prozess waren eine späte Folge der Kontroverse um den Irak-Krieg. Denn in der Plame-Affäre ging es im Kern um die manipulativen Methoden, derer sich die Regierung von Präsident George W. Bush bediente, um den Feldzug zu rechtfertigen und dessen Kritiker zu diskreditieren.
Bush ließ nach dem Urteil erklären, er bedauere Libbys Schuldspruch.
Washington - Vier Mal lautete das Urteil schuldig: Lewis Libby habe sich der Justizbehinderung schuldig gemacht, die Justizbehörden angelogen, Meineid geleistet.
Er habe die Ermittler belogen, als diese herauszufinden versuchten, wer die Identität der Agentin Valerie Plame im Jahr 2003 der Öffentlichkeit preisgab. Ein Strafmaß steht noch nicht fest, Libby drohen bis zu 25 Jahre Haft - und eine Geldstrafe von bis zu einer Million Dollar. AFP
"Scooter" Libby: Schuldspruch gegen Cheneys Ex-Berater Eine Schuld an der Enttarnung der Spionin hatte der Cheney-Vertraute stets bestritten. Nach dem Urteil kündigte Libbys Anwalt Ted Wells an, er wolle eine Neuaufnahme des Verfahrens erreichen oder Berufung gegen das Urteil einlegen. Libby sei "vollständig unschuldig", sagte Wells.
Sonderstaatsanwalt Patrick Fitzgerald bezeichnete es als traurig, dass ein hochrangiger Mitarbeiter aus dem Büro des US-Vizepräsidenten gelogen und die Justiz behindert habe. Der Mehrheitsführer der oppositionellen Demokraten im US-Senat, Harry Reid, meinte, es sei an der Zeit, dass jemand in der Bush-Regierung für die Kampagne zur Manipulierung von Geheimdienstinformationen und Diskreditierung von Irak-Kriegsgegnern zur Verantwortung gezogen werde. Bush müsse jetzt versprechen, Libby nicht zu begnadigen.
Libby war der einzige Angeklagte in dem als "Spygate" bezeichneten Prozess. Cheney wurde in dem Verfahren, das am 23. Januar begann, von der Verteidigung nicht als Zeuge aufgerufen.
Libby gehörte bis zu seinem Ausscheiden nach der Anklage im Oktober 2005 zu den wichtigsten Mitarbeitern im Weißen Haus. Er war nicht nur Stabschef und rechte Hand von Cheney, sondern auch dessen Sicherheitsberater. Damit bestimmte Libby maßgeblich die Politik mit und gehörte auch zu den Architekten des Irak-Krieges.
Nach einer Analyse des US-Nachrichtensenders kann Libby möglicherweise ganz um seine Haftstrafe herumkommen, wenn sich die Auseinandersetzungen vor Gericht weiter hinziehen und ihn Präsident Bush noch vor Ende der Amtszeit im Januar 2009 begnadigen sollte.

Wie schnell Eltern, oftmals ohne es zu ahnen, ihren Nachwuchs psychisch und emotional misshandeln, verdeutlicht der Blick auf die wissenschaftliche Definition des Begriffs. Schon die Wiederholung von Drohungen und Einschüchterungen, permanente Kritik oder Ablehnung gegenüber ihren Sprösslingen fallen in diese Kategorie. Auch die Bevorzugung von Geschwistern "gefährdet eine gesunde geistige und seelische Entwicklung", heißt es auf der Internetseite des DJI.
Das Fazit: Selbst vermeintlich harmlose Formen des Drucks, etwa Isolationshaft, müssten ähnlich beurteilt werden wie körperliche Folter, schreiben Basoglu und seine Kollegen im Fachblatt "Archives of General Psychiatry" (Bd. 64, S. 277). "Eine Unterscheidung zwischen Folter und erniedrigender Behandlung ist nicht nur nutzlos, sondern auch gefährlich", kommentierte der Psychologieprofessor Steven Miles von der Universität Minnesota in dem Magazin.
Auch bei psychischen Langzeitfolgen fanden die Wissenschaftler keine grundsätzlichen Unterschiede zwischen rein körperlicher und psychischer Folter. Vor allem die Beeinträchtigung des Wohlbefindens, wie Isolation oder Drohungen, hatten ähnliche Folgen wie körperliche Misshandlungen. Die Betroffenen leiden jahrelang unter sogenannten posttraumatischen Belastungsstörungen: Alpträume, Flashbacks und Schlafstörungen gehören zu ihrem Alltag. Selbst körperlicher Schmerz, Panik oder plötzliche Bewusstlosigkeit können auftreten.
"Ergebnisse absolut auf Kinder übertragbar"
Die neuen Erkenntnisse dürften jene in Erklärungsnot bringen, die etwa im Kampf gegen den Terrorismus die psychische Folter als vergleichsweise harmlose Verhörmethode eingesetzt sehen wollen. Zudem stellt sich die Frage, ob neben Erwachsenen in Kriegsgebieten auch Kinder in friedlichen Ländern von dieser Art der Folter betroffen sind. Zwar weist Basoglu darauf hin, dass sein Team keine Kinder befragt hat, doch ließen sich die Ergebnisse womöglich übertragen. "Jene psychischen Mechanismen, die bei Erwachsenen zu nachhaltigen traumatischen Erlebnissen führen, könnten bei Kindern ähnlich ablaufen", erklärt Basoglu im Gespräch mit SPIEGEL ONLINE.
Durch die Öffnung können wir direkt in den Erdmantel schauen", sagte Projektleiter Roger Searle, Geophysiker an der Durham University. Neben einer großen Lücke glauben die Forscher noch ein zweites und möglicherweise gar ein drittes Loch ausgemacht zu haben.
Das größte befindet sich auf halber Strecke zwischen Teneriffa und Barbados. Es liegt den Angaben zufolge fünf Kilometer unter der Wasseroberfläche und hat einen Durchmesser von drei bis vier Kilometern. Am Mittelatlantischen Rücken, wo sich zwei tektonische Platten gegeneinander verschieben und sich eine Reihe von Untersee-Vulkanen erstreckt, sind solche Löcher in der Erdkruste keine Seltenheit. Allerdings füllen sie sich normalerweise von unten wieder mit Lava auf.
"Man kann nur darüber spekulieren, warum das in diesem Fall nicht geschehen ist", sagte Ulrich Hansen, Professor am Institut für Geophysik der Universität Münster, im Gespräch mit SPIEGEL ONLINE.
Auch die britischen Forscher hatten erwartet, dass sich an der Stelle des von ihnen entdeckten Lochs sieben Kilometer Erdkruste auftürmen. Stattdessen könne man direkt auf den Fels des Erdmantels blicken - der grün schimmert, weil er aus dem Mineral Olivin besteht.
Frankreichs Kulturminister Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres betonte dagegen, der "Louvre Abu Dhabi" werde zum weltweiten "Strahlen" der französischen Kultur beitragen. Zudem helfe das Projekt, Touristen nach Frankreich zu locken.
Mit den Einnahmen aus dem Abu-Dhabi-Deal will der französische Staat unter anderem die Lagerbestände des Louvre und anderer Pariser Museen gegen eine mögliche Jahrhundertflut der Seine sichern. Im Louvre selbst soll ein derzeit von Restauratoren als Werkstatt genutzter Pavillon renoviert werden, um ihn für Gemäldeaustellungen zu nutzen.
Der Pariser "Figaro" notierte, hätte der Louvre die Gelegenheit nicht ergriffen, dann hätten dies "Sankt Petersburg, Madrid oder Wien" getan.
Der futuristische Gebäude-Entwurf des Stararchitekten Jean Nouvel wird bei seiner Umsetzung rund 83 Millionen Euro kosten. Die Bauarbeiten sollen noch dieses Jahr beginnen und werden frühestens 2012 abgeschlossen sein.

Rom - Helle Aufruhr in Italien. Die Zeitung "La Repubblica" zitiert heute mehrere Politiker aus den Reihen der Radikalen, der Kommunisten und der Grünen, die sich für den Plan stark machen. Ziel sei es, aus dem Stoff Schmerzmittel wie Morphium und Codein herzustellen und so die weit verbreitete Produktion des Opium-Derivats Heroin zu unterbinden. "Auf mehr als 156.000 Hektar wird in Afghanistan Schlafmohn angebaut, was jährlich einen Umsatz von 400 bis 500 Millionen Dollar ausmacht", hieß es. AFP
Arbeit auf dem Mohnfeld: Hunderte Millionen Dollar Umsatz pro Jahr Außenminister Massimo D'Alema erklärte, er wolle das Thema auf die Tagesordnung einer Parlamentsdebatte zum Thema Afghanistan setzen. Schob aber sogleich seine Zweifel an der Umsetzbarkeit des Plans hinterher: "Aber Italien wird kein Opium kaufen können, weil die Produktion von der afghanischen Regierung als illegal betrachtet wird", sagte er. Oppositionspolitiker kritisierten den Vorschlag und meinten, jetzt wolle die Mitte-Links-Koalition "Drogen von Terroristen kaufen".

Denn während 2010 mehr als zwei Drittel der Datenflüsse aus privaten Quellen gespeist werden, durchfließen sie bei ihrem Weg durchs Web zumeist die Infrastrukturen öffentlicher oder kommerzieller Organisationen.
Hollis vergleicht die aktuelle Entwicklung digitaler Daten mit der Urknall-Theorie. "In relativ kurzer Zeit haben wir eine dramatische Expansion der zur Verfügung stehenden Informationen erlebt - und die nimmt weiterhin exponentiell zu, nicht linear," sagt Hollis.
Ein Ende dieser Entwicklung sieht Hollis derzeit nicht: "Ich bin mir sicher, dass es irgendwo eine Grenze gibt, aber es ist schwer abzusehen, wo die liegen könnte."
Einer IDC-Studie zufolge wird die Menschheit bis 2010 ganze 988 Milliarden Gigabyte digitale Informationen zusammentragen. Das ist eine Versechsfachung der heute weltweit digital gespeicherten Datenmenge. Hauptverursacher: der Schnappschuss mit Digicam und Handy.
Schon das für 2006 von IDC berechnete Datenvolumen sprengt jegliche Vorstellungskraft. Insgesamt 161 Exabyte, entsprechend 161 Milliarden Gigabyte, hatte die digitale Weltbevölkerung bis Ende letzten Jahres zusammengetragen. Dass, so der Auftraggeber der Studie, die auf Informations-Infrastrukturen spezialisierte EMC Corporation, entspricht in etwa dem dreieinhalbmillionenfachen der Informationsmenge, die in sämtlichen jemals geschriebenen Büchern zusammengefasst wurde.
Speicherplatz-Studie: Digitaler Daten-Urknall

Allein E-Mails trugen mit sechs Milliarden Gigabyte zu dieser Zahl bei. Tendenz: rasant zunehmend. Ein großes Wachstum sehen die Forscher auch für Instant-Messaging, also Chats, voraus. Zu den heute schon 1,6 Milliarden E-Mail-Postfächern (1998 waren es noch 253 Millionen) werden sich demnach bis 2010 noch 250 Millionen Messaging-Accounts gesellen.

These acts of self-determination didn't coincide with the needs of the American power elite + so the USA moved to crush those governments and movements even though the Soviet Union was playing virtually no role at all in these scenarios.

FBI SHUT DOWN INVESTIGATION INTO SAUDI TERROR CELL IN BOSTON
A software company called Ptech, founded by a Saudi financier placed on America s Terrorist List 00.Oct.2001,
had access to the FAA?s entire computer system for two years before the 11.Sep.2001 attack.
But it s the unreported story that has the potential to lead to the explosive charge that the FBI 's role in the 11.Sep.2001 investigation itself needs investigation.
00.Oct.2001 -a handful of ex- Ptech employees alerted the FBI to evidence indicating that the firm had Saudi terror connections.
00.000.2002 -Almost a year later- the Boston FBI had still done nothing about it.
They had, in fact, shut down their cursory investigation and taken no action.
20.Feb.2006 Michael Chertoff and the Sabotage of the Ptech Investigation
16.Jul.2005 MITRE 's public relations manager for "corporate identity" in Bedford, Jennifer Shearman, told AFP that..
MITRE is a "trusted mentor" for the FAA + is a "unique" provider of "objective + independent" information for the U.S. civil aviation authority.
MITRE 's Bedford headquarters are located near Boston's Logan airport where the two planes that struck the World Trade Center WTC supposedly originated .
Bedford lies directly under the flight path of westbound flights leaving Logan.
MITRE developed the technology "to aid controllers in solving problems while keeping aircraft close to their route + altitude + speed preferences."
Shearman was unable to say why the MITRE technology apparently failed on 11.Sep.2001 .
Indira Singh, an "IT consultant" who previously worked on a Defense Advanced Research Project + who was employed by J.P. Morgan on 11.Sep.2001, in risk management,
pointed to MITRE 's role at the FAA during the 11.Sep.2001 Citizens' Commission hearings in New York last September.
" Ptech was with MITRE Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 11.Sep.2001 ," Singh said.
"Their specific job is to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD + the Air Force in the case of an emergency.
If anyone was in a position to know that the FAA – that there was a window of opportunity or to insert software or to change anything – it would have been Ptech along with MITRE ." A representative of Ptech could not be reached.
[ Ptech appears to have been a Mossad front company created to provide insecure Trojan Horse software to the U.S. military + intelligence agencies.
Ptech has the typical Arab owners and financiers - and Mossad operators.] For example, see Michael Goff, former marketing manager at Ptech, Inc. https://www.goffpr.com/about.asp

Al-Qadi, prior to being publicly identified as a key al-Qaeda financer, owned a prominent U.S. technology firm and reported CIA front known as Ptech.  He also escorted U.S. officials around during their visits to Saudi Arabia. 
“Council of State Administrative Cases Bureau on Thursday decided to annul a lower court's decision to rescind a cabinet order to freeze the assets of Saudi financier Yasin al-Qadi, who has been accused of financing terrorism,” the Turkish Daily News reported Saturday.  And: Similar allegations of obstruction of justice and dereliction of duty have been reported here in the USA, where following the 9/11 attacks FBI agent Robert Wright and other members of his unit claimed that their investigation into Yasin al-Qadi had been repeatedly blocked by higher ups at the FBI. 
As Agent Wright told ABC News 00.000.2002, “the supervisor who was there from [FBI] headquarters was right straight across from me and started yelling at me: 'You will not open criminal investigations. I forbid any of you. You will not open criminal investigations against any of these intelligence subjects.'" 
According to Agent Wright, who seized $1.4 million directly linked to al-Qadi 00.000.1998 , it is very likely that 9/11 would have been prevented if he had simply been allowed to do his job. 
Over the course of Wright’s investigation, however, al-Qadi was apparently assisting the CIA in Albania, Kosovo, Bosnia + the USA itself. 
Al-Qadi owned a Massachusetts-based technology firm and defense contractor known as Ptech, which, according to U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to 9/11 whistleblower Indira Singh, was a "CIA clandestine op on the level of Iran-Contra."  Permalink

05.Mar.2007 The word “theory” usually connotes a formal way of thinking logically or mathematically. In this formal sense, theory takes its place in a knowledge-generating process called the scientific method. The scientific method includes hypothesis formation, experiment planning, execution + data analysis. In this scheme, theory is used to make predictions. Theory is created by a process that includes hypothesis formation and testing.
Unfortunately, this notion of theory and the working methods of science and invention leaves out imagination. This makes it both boring and misleading…. 
05.Mar.2007 The Problem of the Wrong Puzzle
Frequent public references to “failing to connect the dots” are especially problematic for an accurate understanding of intelligence errors and failures. This view of the analytic shortfalls is particularly perverse, because it masks the true nature of the analyst’s challenges. The flawed “connect the dots” analogy flows from the image of the children’s game book in which lines are to be drawn between a set of numbered dots in order to make a recognizable picture. That analogy assumes, however, that—as in the children’s book—the dots exist, that it will be obvious which dots connect to which others and in what order. The problem is that this simple analogy overlooks a well-known phenomenon in psychology that is often illustrated by the “Rubin Vase Illusion”: that evidence really does not “speak for itself”; rather, that information is “perceived and interpreted.” Humans are extremely good at finding patterns, even when there is none—hence the classic intelligence aphorism, “You rarely find what you’re not looking for and usually do find what you are looking for.”
If we are to use a puzzle analogy, perhaps a more appropriate model might be that of a guest at a resort hotel who, on a rainy afternoon, wanders into the game room and finds a box holding a large number of jigsaw puzzle pieces. As the cover of the box is missing, there is no picture to guide him in reconstructing the puzzle, nor is there any assurance that all the pieces are there. Indeed, when he discovers that there are several other empty puzzle boxes on a shelf, it is not even clear that all the pieces in the box belong to the same puzzle. Reconstructing the puzzle in this example is a far different and more difficult challenge than linking numbered dots, where the outline of the image is reasonably apparent.
Talk of a "science of analysis" is a conceit ... The reality is otherwise.
Both the dots analogy and the model of evidence-based analysis (discussed in the following section) understate significantly the need for imagination and curiosity on the part of the analyst.

Pannasch, S., Dornhoefer, S.M., Unema, P.J.A., Velichkovsky, B.M. (2000). Take Your Time - Just for a Wink! Eye Movements Are Inhibited By Virtually Any Change in Situation or Subject's Activity. Poster presentation at "Eye movements and vision in the natural world",Amsterdam, Rotterdam/Netherlands September 27-29.
When two stimuli are presented in parallel, one of which is a target and the other a distractor, a significant increase in saccadic reaction time is usually found (Lévy Schoen, 1969, L'Anee Psychology 74 43?66; Findlay, 1983, Spatially Oriented Behavior 281?303; Walker et. al., 1995, Experimental Brain Research 103 294?310). Taking the reciprocal stance, one may state that the duration of the ongoing fixation is prolonged. The implication of taking this viewpoint is not merely a semantic inversion, but instead a reorientation to the effects of natural "distractors" in a natural environment: whenever something new enters anywhere in our field of view, the ongoing fixation is prolonged, rather than being, as might be intuitively expected, immediately redirected to the new stimulus. lt should be emphasised, that this prolongation is strictly phasic in nature, i.e. the prolongation occurs during the ongoing fixation only. The common explanation of the distractor effect on saccadic reaction time entirely relies upon the assumption that it is an optomotor reflex, controlled by the superior colliculus (Reingold & Stampe, 2000, Reading as a Perceptual Process 1?26). This interpretation leaves no room for effects elicited by other sensory modalities. However, a prolongation of the ongoing fixation is not only elicited by visual (1) bualso by auditory (2) stimuli (Unema & Velichkovsky, 2000, Processing stages as revealed by dynamics of visual fixations: Distractor versus relevance, paper presented to the 41st Annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society, 17?20th of November 2000 in New Orleans). Moreover, we observed the effect in the absence of discrete phvsical stimulus events, e.g. upon shifting from listening to speaking (and vice versa) (3) or upon the execution of brake responses in a driving simulator task (4).The optomotor reflex interpretation of the distractor effect on saccadic reaction times obviously falls short of explaining the effects found in fixation durations. We are tempted to interpret the results as another manifestation of general motor inhibition during an orienting reaction (Sokolov, 1963 Perception and the Conditioned Reflex) and perhaps during any activity switching.

Change blindness experiments constitute an exciting chapter of contemporary cognitive research. Their ecological validity, practical significance and possible explanation however remain somewhat unclear. In the reported study of change blindness, we made use of the eye tracking methodology to investigate two natural modes of interruption of visual presentation, namely blinks and saccades. In addition, two control conditions - the more traditional blanks as well as the condition of displaying change during a fixation - were used. As material, we presented real world photographs of different traffic situations. We further contrasted two classes of changes - relevant and irrelevant from the driving point of view. Physical parameters of these changes (size of the regions, their location and color) have been counterbalanced. 18 Ss, all with middle to high driving skills, participated in the experiment. The main result of this study was an overall effect of relevance on detection rate: in all occlusion conditions (blanks, blinks and saccades), the correct detection of relevant changes was very much better than that of irrelevant changes: 80 vs. 33%. Despite these large differences in detection rate, the reaction times to relevant changes were similar to those obtained with irrelevant changes (300 ms longer than in the fixation condition). For saccadic occlusion (the most frequent natural interruption of visual information) the difference was as large as 350 ms.Secondly, there emerged a difference in detection rate (and reaction times) between blink-occluded changes on one hand and blank- and saccadic occlusions on the other. Finally, the type of change (insertion, deletion, translation or color shift) appeared to have a major influence on detection rate in all occlusion conditions, insertion being detected easiest and fastest. We want to stress that saccades are similar to blanks in their influence on detection and reaction time, whereas blinks clearly deviate. The classical change blindness effects produced by blanks may be a result of updating environmental information connected with every refixation of visual scene. Apparently, this takes place for relevant aspects of the situation only - irrelevant information has but little chance of surviving the occlusion. Despite the difference in detection rates between relevant and irrelevant changes, reaction times are similar - an unexpected dissociation between perceptual input and motor output?

Change blindness can be produced using both, static and dynamic visual environments. However, a direct comparison of these conditions has not been satisfactorily realised yet. We approached the task with the help of a new method - the Video Supported Spatial Simulation which is normally used by architects for developing and illustration purposes. In our experiment, a computer controlled endoscope video camera moved through a reduced scale-model (1:100) of an urban street scenario simulating the viewpoint of a van driver moving at a constant speed of 36 km/h. Due to the controlled laboratory setting, we were able to repeatedly produce identical video clips of the same scenes. After shooting the initial clip, the same clip was shot again. However, this time a target object was added to or withdrawn from the scene. The two clips were digitally edited and merged into one single clip, where a sudden change occurs in absence of change-indicating 'cuts'. 12 subjects were asked to report changes in the scenes of 336 realistic ego-motion video clips (16 s each). Randomly distributed yellow cubes (perceived as lying on the street and having a size of about 50 cm) were used as targets and distractors. Change conditions consisted of either the appearance or disappearance of one cube during 40 ms (simulating a saccade), 160 ms (simulating an eye blink) or 320 ms blank screen intervals as well as during a non-occluded control condition. In order to avoid guessing, catch trials were introduced in all blank conditions. Corresponding screenshots of the video clips were used as the static environments. The extent of change blindness found in this study was consistently higher in the dynamic visual environments and relatively constant at all blank durations.
Marx, J., Pannasch, S. & Velichkovsky, B.M. (2003). Event-related prolongation of fixation duration: Evidence for habituation of the intermodal distractor effect Perception, 32, Suppl.
When two stimuli are presented at the same time, one being the target and the other irrelevant distractor, a significant increase of saccadic latency is found. A similar effect can be obtained in free visual exploration of a scene where fixation durations are prolonged by irrelevant visual stimuli. In contrast to the current explanation as an oculomotor reflex (eg Reingold and Stampe, 2002 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience 14 371 - 388), we consider the effect rather as a rudimentary manifestation of the orienting reaction, since our data demonstrated that it can also be produced by acoustic distractors (Pannasch et al, 2001 Vision Research 41 3345 - 3351). However, an orienting reaction should habituate and this has never been shown for the distractor effect.
In the actual study, we presented visual and acoustic distractors during free viewing of a sequence of naturalistic pictures. Eye movements and event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded simultaneously. The data demonstrate a clear distractor effect both in fixation durations and in early components of the ERPs (N1), whereby the effect in ERP components was delayed (by up to 40 ms) relative to the evoked prolongation of fixations. Furthermore, a significant habituation of the visual and acoustic distractor effects has been found not only in the ERPs, but also in visual fixations. These results indicate a good feasibility of the proposed interpretation for mechanisms of the distractor effect.
Landon enjoyed intimate ties to both Mark Thatcher + Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher throughout the 1980s +
this further facilitated Oman's key role as a weapons conduit to the Afghan mujahideen.
A look at a map of the Arabian Sea + the Indian subcontinent shows that
Oman is a stone's throw away from the Pakistani port of Karachi, the major weapons-importing point (and heroin-exporting point) for the Afghan rebels.
another strong player in Oman during this period was one of the American CIA figures who most closely followed the British SAS model: Theodore G. Shackley.
Shackley had directed the CIA's "secret war in Laos" during the late 1960s and early 1970s +
had written a book, The Third Option, spelling out the SAS approach to training + controlling local insurgent armies as surrogates.
Much of the Laos "secret war" had been financed by the sale of Golden Triangle opium.
Shackley was a pivotal behind-the-scenes player in George Bush's "secret parallel government" apparatus that ran the Afghan + Nicaraguan + Angolan + other covert operations.
When Shackley left the CIA,
he went on retainer with a shadowy Dutch oil trader named John Deuss, who developed a special relationship with Sultan Qaboos that was almost as tight as the Omani's ties to Brigadier Landon.
Typical SAS uses of these afghansi include:

driptray writes "The Sydney Morning Herald reports that an Australian mining industry group has used copyright laws to close a website that parodied a coal industry ad campaign. A group known as Rising Tide created the website using the slogan "Rising sea levels: brought to you by mining" in response to the mining industry's slogan of "Life: brought to you by mining". The mining industry claimed that the "content and layout" of the parody site infringed copyright, but when Rising Tide removed the copyrighted photos and changed the layout, the mining industry still lodged a complaint. Is this a misuse of copyright law in order to stifle dissent?"

04.Mar.2007 Today's Papers: Welcome to The Jungle - BG ati today's papers - Welcome to The Jungle By Barron YoungSmith Posted Sunday, March 4, 2007, at 6:57 AM ET
Today's Washington Post leads with news that the FDA is overruling warnings from its own public health experts in order to approve a risky cattle antibiotic. The Los Angeles Times leads with news that the cocaine trade has shifted from the Caribbean to routes across Central America and Mexico. The New York Times lead looks at mandatory post-incarceration treatment programs for sex offenders. The programs are expanding across the country, but they're quite expensive and not so effective.
The FDA is fixin' to approve the extremely potent drug cefquinome for use on cattle--a step that risks creating diseases that are resistant to medicine's most powerful antibiotics. Thirteen health groups, including the AMA, plus the FDA advisory board say the decision is needlessly dangerous. But the FDA is following a new "guidance document" telling it to weight public health concerns against pharma concerns less strongly than it has in the past. To continue reading, click here.

“American troops opened fire on a highway filled with civilian cars and bystanders today, American and Afghan officials said, in an incident that the Americans said left 16 civilians dead and 24 wounded as they fled the scene of a suicide car bombing in eastern Afghanistan. One American was also wounded.”
UPDATE: “Afghan journalists — some working for the Associated Press — covering the aftermath of a suicide bomb attack and shooting in eastern Afghanistan Sunday said U.S. troops deleted their photos and video and warned them not to publish or air any images of U.S. troops or a car where three Afghans were shot to death.”
05.Mar.2007 REPORT: CPAC Speakers Run From Bush Record - Faiz -
At last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, attendees gathered to hear partisan attacks against progressives from the likes of Ann Coulter and former Swift Boat Veterans For Truth.
All the mud-slinging from the right obscured the fact that rarely was the name of the current sitting president ever mentioned. Bush’s job approval rests at one of its lowest points — 29 %. Moreover, his rating among conservatives has dropped 13 points since last fall. Now, 65 % of his base says they approve of the way he is handling his job as president, compared with 78 % last October.
A review of the prominent keynote speeches from speakers at the CPAC conference reveals that many of them view the Bush effect more as albatross than an advantage:
FORMER GOV. MITT ROMNEY: Mentions of Bush: 0. Mentions of Ronald Reagan: 2.
FORMER GOV. MIKE HUCKABEE: Mentions of Bush: 1. Mentions of Reagan: 0. In the sole reference, Huckabee said, “I supported the Bush tax cuts 00.000.2001. I still support them today.”
SEN. SAM BROWNBACK: Mentions of Bush: 1. Mentions of Reagan: 2. The only reference Brownback made to Bush was when he said, “On Social Security — and President Bush, God bless him, started this debate and discussion [about] personal Social Security accounts.”
REP. DUNCAN HUNTER: Mentions of Bush: 0. Mentions of Reagan: 5.
RUDY GIULIANI: Mentions of Bush: 4. Mentions of Reagan: 15. One of Guiliani’s few references to Bush’s record was the following statement: “You’re going to succeed at some things, fail at others.”
05.Mar.2007 Kiley: Post investigation ‘yellow journalism.’ - Nico -
In an interview, Army Secretary Francis Harvey, who resigned on Friday, “defended his decision to temporarily appoint” Lt. Gen. Kevin Kiley as Walter Reed’s commander. “He said Kiley called him a few days ago and lambasted The Washington Post’s series on the medical center. ‘He called me and said, “I’m willing to defend myself. … I want to have an opportunity to defend myself + it was wrong and it was yellow journalism at its worst + I plan on doing it. Trust me.”‘ Harvey said. ‘I said, “Okay, Kevin.”‘” Though Kiley will no longer oversee Walter Reed, he remains the Army’s top medical official.

05.Mar.2007 New York Times’ Bumiller: Bush ‘Really Is A Pragmatist Masked In Ideology’ - Amanda -
This morning on the Chris Matthews Show, New York Times reporter Elisabeth Bumiller claimed that if you look at the administration’s recent dealings with North Korea, Syria + Iran, “what you’re actually seeing is what I think [President Bush] really is, a pragmatist masked in ideology.” Watch it:
It has been four years since the USA invaded Iraq and President Bush still refuses to have direct talks with Iran and Syria about the war, let alone Iran’s nuclear development. Meanwhile, under Bush’s “pragmatic” leadership, North Korea has developed 10-11 bombs worth of plutonium, suitable for use in nuclear weapons + conducted its first nuclear weapons test. All of the administration’s efforts to control North Korea’s nuclear program have failed.
On Tuesday, the administration announced it would join high-level talks with the two countries. As the Washington Post notes, “these conferences [will] be led and organized by the Iraqi government and not, as the [Iraq Study Group] suggested, by the USA.” This is a long-overdue first baby step, not a sign of Bush’s “pragmatism.”
05.Mar.2007 Murtha Laughs Off Cheney: At Least He Didn’t Blame Me For The British Pulling Out - Nico -
Today on Meet the Press, Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) laughed off Vice President Cheney’s attack that Murtha’s plan for Iraq would “validate the al Qaeda strategy.”
“He didn’t blame me for at least getting the British out,” Murtha said. “I thought he might blame me for that.”
Murtha pointed out that Cheney “just does not listen to what I’m saying.” Cheney ignores the military’s readiness crisis and the fact that “the future threats to this country significantly increased in the last year because we have no ground strategic reserve. … He doesn’t talk about the policy and the results of what I’m saying.” Watch it: Digg It!
05.Mar.2007 Brit Hume On Walter Reed: ‘It Looks Terrible’ For The Bush Administration, ‘Which Is The Problem’ - Nico -
This morning on Fox News Sunday, Brit Hume spoke about the Walter Reed scandal in entirely political terms, saying “the problem” is that it “looks terrible” for the administration.
Hume called the neglect and deplorable conditions at the military hospital a “potential” political firestorm, but said that the “administration did what it did to try to get it over with + it may well have succeeded.”
Hume suggested that if Democrats had not taken control of Congress in November’s election, the Bush administration would not have demanded resignations from the Army Secretary and the chief of Walter Reed. “This is an administration which is known or had been known for sticking by people even when they were embattled.” Watch it:
NPR’s Mara Liasson responded to Hume’s comments: “I think, you know, to say it looks bad, it also is bad . Those pictures were horrible. These are people — nobody who is being treated for any kind of injury should have to live in that condition, let alone people who just fought in a war for our country.” Transcript (more…)

05.Mar.2007 Last chance to save New Orleans. - Nico -
The New Orleans Times-Picayune begins a three-part series called Last Chance, revealing the growing belief that “the great sweep of marshes protecting New Orleans from the Gulf” will be wiped out far earlier than scientists once believed, “putting the sea at the city’s doorstep.”
Says one researcher: “Ten years is how much time we have left — if that.“
05.Mar.2007 Post Reporter: ‘We Are Not Spared’ The ‘Nasty, Vulgar E-Mail’ From ‘Liberal Blog’ Readers - Nico -
Last week, both conservative and traditional media outlets did their best to turn some hateful and inappropriate statements about Vice President Cheney by anonymous commenters at liberal blogs into a broad commentary on the left in general.
As Glenn Greenwald predicted, Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz devoted his column to the “scandal”:
But as Greenwald (and Arianna) pointed out:
Stray, anonymous comments prove nothing. And those who rely on them to make an argument — especially without bothering to make any effort to prove that they are reflective of anything — should be presumed to have no argument at all. That is why they are relying upon such transparently flimsy and misleading methods to make a point.
During a WashingtonPost.com chat on Thursday, a reader confronted national political reporter Lois Romano about the coverage:
“Selectively quoting anonymous posters from any political blog is shoddy ‘journalism’ at its worst. What does Mr. Kurtz have to say to defend himself on this?”
Romano had nothing to say about Kurtz.
Instead, she bemoaned the “new viciousness in the process often generated by the blogs,” and likened herself and other reporters to Cheney, complaining that “we are not spared” the “nasty, vulgar e-mail” produced by “liberal blogs.”
Romano: We are watching the blogs + just this month The Post assigned a young reporter to cover Internet campaigning. There certainly is a new viciousness in the process often generated by the blogs. You need to know that we as reporters are not spared — if we write an article the liberals blogs do not like we will be inundated with nasty, vulgar e-mail — which has no impact on our coverage.
While “liberal blogs” are lumped together with a tiny unrepresentative sample of anonymous commenters, the hate speech by leading figures of the conservative movement is ignored: today’s Post coverage of the Conservative Political Action Conference makes no mention of Ann Coulter’s inflammatory “faggot” remark.

Doch dem Physiker wollte es nicht gelingen, die Abweichungen von bis zu fünf Grad nach oben vollständig zu erklären.
Die globale Erwärmung könnte Europa über bisher unbekannte Rückkopplungen im Klimasystem einheizen.
Ihre Entschlüsselung dürfte lohnenswert sein.
"Wäre die Wärme-Anomalie statt im Herbst im Sommer aufgetreten", heißt es in einer Mitteilung der europäischen Wetterdienste, "hätte sie ähnliche Folgen gehabt wie der Katastrophen-Sommer 2003."
Damals starben letzten Schätzungen zufolge bis zu 50.000 Europäer.
Wie extrem der Herbst war, dokumentiert vor allem eine Zahl des KNMI: In Deutschland, Belgien, den Niederlanden, Dänemark und der Schweiz herrschte von
September bis Dezember eine Durchschnittstemperatur, wie sie nur alle 10.000 Jahre auftritt, verglichen mit den statistischen Normalwerten für das 20. Jahrhundert.
Oder, anders ausgedrückt:
Unter der Annahme, dass kein Klimawandel stattfindet, läge die Wahrscheinlichkeit eines solchen Herbstes bei 1:10.000.
Regional lag die Durchschnittstemperatur um bis zu fünf Grad Celsius über dem Mittel für diese Jahreszeit.
Gleich reihenweise brach der Herbst 2006 bestehende Wärmerekorde, obwohl die Wetteraufzeichnungen zum Teil sehr weit zurückreichen - in den Niederlanden bis ins Jahr 1706, in England sogar bis 1659.
Auch im Winter Rekordwerte
Schutz mit Milliardenaufwand - oder Zusammenbruch
Was ein nachhaltiger Umgang mit den Fischbeständen kosten würde, hat der Ozeanograph Callum Roberts von der britischen University of York ausgerechnet:
Wirksamer Schutz für rund ein Drittel aller Meere würde jährlich zwischen 3,7 und 14,3 Milliarden Euro kosten, schrieb der Forscher in der Wissenschaftszeitschrift "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences".
Er betonte dabei, dass der Schutz der Bestände große Gewinne für die Gesellschaft mit sich bringe.
Schon Überwachung völlig unzureichend
"Auf hoher See herrschen Methoden wie im Wilden Westen", fasst Ralph Kampwirth von der Umweltstiftung World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) zusammen.
Zudem beugten sich viele Staaten ihrer jeweiligen Fischereilobby, statt die von Experten empfohlenen Quoten zu akzeptieren.
Die Umweltschutzorganisation Greenpeace schlägt vor, für 40 % der Weltmeere ein Fischfangverbot aufzustellen. Vor allem Laichplätze und Wanderrouten der Fische müssten geschützt werden
Viele Fischbestände stehen kurz vor dem Zusammenbruch, heißt es in einem neuen Bericht der Welternährungs-Organisation.
Forscher warnen: Beutet die Menschheit die Ozeane weiter aus, könnte wild aufgewachsener Fisch schon in den nächsten Jahrzehnten von den Tellern verschwinden.
Rom - Der "Mangel an politischem Willen" sei schuld, beklagt die Welternährungsorganisation (FAO) der Vereinten Nationen - nicht etwa der Erkenntnisstand.
In Rom stellten Fischerei-Experten der FAO am heutigen Montag erschreckende neue Zahlen über die Gefährdung der Fischbestände vor.
Lebesmittel Wildfisch: Heute bedroht. Bald Vergangenheit? Experten warnen seit Jahren davor, dass die Ozeane drastisch überfischt sind.
Viele Sorten könnten bald nicht mehr für die Ernährung der Weltbevölkerung zur Verfügung stehen.
Hunderte von Meeresarten stehen erstmals auf der Roten Liste, weil sie vom Aussterben bedroht sind. Manche Wissenschaftler vergleichen die Folgen des menschlichen Handelns inzwischen gar mit den fünf großen Massensterben der Erdgeschichte.
Das ganze Ausmaß dieser Tragödie bei den Speisefischen zeigt der neue Bericht "State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture" (Sofia), der auch auf der FAO- Website veröffentlicht wurde:
Insgesamt sei genau ein Viertel aller Meeresfisch-Bestände gefährdet. Von jenem Viertel der Bestände in bedenklichem Zustand seien 17 % übernutzt + sieben % stark zurückgegangen.
Nur 1 % erhole sich derzeit langsam. Mehr als die Hälfte (52 %) der Bestände würden bereits heute derart intensiv ausgebeutet, dass keine Steigerung mehr möglich sei.
