The FBI: Terrorists Among Us

There seems to be a rule: if a terror attack takes place and the FBI investigates it, things are never what they seem.

Federal attorney Andrew C McCarthy prosecuted the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing case. A review of his book, Willful Blindness, states:

“For the first time, McCarthy intimately reveals the real story behind the FBI’s inability to stop the first World Trade Center bombing even though the bureau had an undercover informant in the operation — the jihadists’ supposed bombmaker.

“In the first sentence of his hard-hitting account, the author sums up the lawyerly — but staggeringly incomprehensive — reason why the FBI pulled its informant out of the terrorist group even as plans were coming to a head on a major attack:

“’Think of the liability!’

“The first rule for government attorneys in counterintelligence in the 1990s was, McCarthy tells us, ‘Avoid accountable failure.’ Thus, when the situation demanded action, the feds copped a CYA posture, the first refuge of the bureaucrat.”

That’s a titanic accusation, coming from a former federal prosecutor.

Yes, the FBI had an informant inside the group that was planning the 1993 WTC bombing that eventually, on February 26, killed 6 people and injured 1042.

His name is Emad Salem, a former Egyptian Army officer. Present whereabouts unknown. Yanking Salem out of the group planning the Bombing was a devastating criminal act on the part of the FBI.

But there is more to the story.

On October 28, 1993, Ralph Blumenthal wrote a piece about Emad Salem for the New York Times: “Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast.” It began:

“Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer [Emad Salem] said after the blast.”

Continuing: “The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer [Emad] said.”

The FBI called the “plan” off, but left the planners to their own devices. No “harmless powder.” Instead, real explosives.

The Times article goes on: “The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers.”

This is a shockingly strong opening for an article in the NY Times. It focuses on the testimony of the informant; it seems to take his side.

Several years after reporter Blumenthal wrote the above piece, I spoke with him and expressed my amazement at the revelations about the FBI—and wondered whether the Times had continued to investigate the scandal.

Blumenthal wasn’t pleased, to say the least. He said I misunderstood the article.

I mentioned the fact that Emad Salem wasn’t called as a prosecution witness in the 1993 WTC Bombing trial.

Of course, why would the Dept. of Justice bring Salem to the stand? Would they want him to blame the FBI for letting/abetting the Bombing?

Again, Blumenthal told me I “didn’t understand.” He became angry and that was the end of the conversation.

I remember thinking: Is there anything under the sun the FBI can be held accountable for…because letting the bomb plot go forward…what else do you need for a criminal prosecution of the Bureau? ….

MH17 Crash Site Still Not Secured

No investigation appears to be under way at the crash site of downed Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, FRANCE 24 reports, as Dutch and Australian troops remain on standby for deployment to secure the rebel-held crash site.

“The smell of death and engine fuel is still very strong here at the crash site of flight MH17, over a week after the tragedy,” said FRANCE 24′s Luke Brown, reporting from the scene.

“Few security measures have been put in place to protect the site and any forensic evidence that could be found here,” Brown said, adding that some 40 Dutch police officers are expected to secure the area in the coming days.

The Netherlands is leading the international probe after losing 193 citizens in the crash of Malaysian flight MH17 in east Ukraine, where fighting between the army and separatists claimed over a dozen more lives on Friday.

A truce has been declared in the vicinity of the vast crash site in rebel-held Grabove, where remains of the victims still lie decomposing under the sweltering summer heat. …

Yugoslavia: The Weight of Chains

If you thought you knew why Yugoslavia broke up, get ready for 2 hours of shocking facts that will shed a different light on Western intervention in the Balkans. Nicknamed the “Serbian Michael Moore” by the oldest daily newspaper in the Balkans, Malagurski will expose the root causes of the Yugoslav wars and explain that the goal was for the West to create economic and geopolitical colonies in that part of the world.

“Government” Steps up Domestic Chemical Warfare

Barring some kind of advanced alien technology, there will soon be nothing that can clean up the toxic mess we are making of our planting fields. Even as we speak, the FDA and EPA are about to approve the use of 2,4-D chemicals on American fields, even though it has been linked to developmental and neurological health problems, among other environmental damage.

We also know that the very reason for this consideration is because RoundUp Ready chemicals failed, and glyphosate-drenched fields everywhere are giving birth to superweeds bigger than farmers have ever seen. But do we stop the madness and desist from putting more toxic drivel on our crops? No – in this country, we let regulators go even further. A whole new type of pesticides and herbicides is about to be unleashed on the public. What will it take for this to stop?

Approval is also now being sought for genetically modified crops that will withstand the use of dicamba, HPPD and glufosinate - all weed-killing chemicals that had largely been eschewed in favor of the pesticide industry’s superstar: glyphosate. The biotech industry bet the farm on glyphosate and it failed – killing our crops, harming our ground water, and causing human infertility and DNA aberrance, but let’s give the good ole’ boys another go at it – shall we?

“We thought that biotechnology was going to be a solution and a long-term solution that would replace chemistry, so as a result people stopped investing in chemistry,” Paul Schickler, president of DuPont Pioneer, told POLITICO Pro in a recent interview.

Instead of looking at aged practices – those which have been tested and tried for millennia, of organic and sustainable farming which is still proving to be viable even today – the agricultural industry looks for ‘new and better’ chemicals. Since these often take decades to develop, and billions of dollars, I might add, the near-term solution of these crazy-makers seems to be to bring older pesticides back into the spotlight.

The EPA had an open forum for comments on the possible approval of 2,4-D chemicals that closed on June 30, but we all know this was a total waste of time. The EPA doesn’t listen to public opinion about herbicide use, pesticide contamination, or GMOs anymore than the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association listens to Vermont’s desire to have GMOs labeled. Its all a rigged game. Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer, Dow Chemical – they all know they are running a racket, and we are just small people who must bow to their bloated corporate budgets.

California County Unanimously Votes to Further Investigate Geo-engineering

How long did it take?  20 years?  How downtrodden can a society be and still function?  Maybe Alex Jones has a point, maybe it’s time to be angry, if only as a survival strategy.   Hoping for the best doesn’t seem to be working.

Californians fill Shasta County Board of Supervisors’ Chambers hearing over ‘chemtrails

California county supervisors listened to formal input from experts and people concerned over geo-engineering above Redding and other cities around the world. Geo-engineering started in the 1940′s according to NASA.

Many people believe administration of chemicals is through the airplane exhaust system used to manipulate the weather.

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously this afternoon to investigate further on “chemtrails” after nearly four hours of public comment on the issue.

Supervisor Pam Giacomini put the item on the agenda, and a number of chemtrail experts addressed the panel, followed by dozens of citizens who blamed a host of health and environmental risks caused by chemtrails.

Droves of residents voiced their concern, suggesting their illnesses are linked  to chemtrails, including cancer, fibers growing out of their skin, general feelings of malaise, neurological problems and compromised immune systems.

According to the local newspaper, many had environmental concerns of environmental damage, including insects disappearing from one property, trees failing, aquatic insects dying off in water contaminated by aluminum, drought, wildfires and holes in the ozone layer.

Some suggest chemicals are being released in the contrails of jets and leading to the buildup of heavy metals in the soil and waterways, an increase in ultraviolet radiation, changes in weather patterns and negative health effects.

According to a flier, today’s meeting featured, Dane Wigington, a Bella Vista man who runs geoengineeringwatch.org, will speak to the board along with Matthew Sutton, an environmental consultant with AECOM; Rosalind Peterson, former USDA officer now with California Sky Watch; Alan Buckman, formerly a biologist with California’s Department of Fish and Game; Francis Mangles, a retired biologist with the U.S. Forest Service; neurologist Hamid Rablee; former pilots Jeff Nelson, Russ Lazuka and Fred Meyer; Mark McCandlisk; and Earendil M. Spindelilus.

Ukranian Rebel Leader Says Bodies on MH17 “Weren’t Fresh”

A top pro-Russia rebel commander in eastern Ukraine has given a bizarre version of events surrounding the Malaysian jetliner crash — suggesting many of the victims may have died days before the plane took off.

The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that “a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,” adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition. …

Monsanto’s Roundup Linked to Fatal Kidney Disease Epidemic

Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup has been linked to a mysterious fatal kidney disease epidemic that has appeared in Central America, Sri Lanka and India.

For years, scientists have been trying to unravel the mystery of a chronic kidney disease epidemic that has hit Central America, India and Sri Lanka. The disease occurs in poor peasant farmers who do hard physical work in hot climes. In each instance, the farmers have been exposed to herbicides and to heavy metals. The disease is known as CKDu, for Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown etiology. The “u” differentiates this illness from other chronic kidney diseases where the cause is known. Very few Western medical practitioners are even aware of CKDu, despite the terrible toll it has taken on poor farmers from El Salvador to South Asia.

Dr. Catharina Wesseling, the regional director for the Program on Work and Health (SALTRA) in Central America, which pioneered the initial studies of the region’s unsolved outbreak, put it this way, “Nephrologists and public health professionals from wealthy countries are mostly either unfamiliar with the problem or skeptical whether it even exists.”

Dr. Wesseling was being diplomatic. At a 2011 health summit in Mexico City, the United States beat back a proposal by Central American nations that would have listed CKDu as a top priority for the Americas.

David McQueen, a US delegate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who has since retired from the agency, explained the US position.

“The idea was to keep the focus on the key big risk factors that we could control and the major causes of death: heart disease, cancer and diabetes. And we felt, the position we were taking, that CKD was included.”

The United States was wrong. The delegates from Central America were correct. CKDu is a new form of illness. This kidney ailment does not stem from diabetes, hypertension or other diet-related risk factors. Unlike the kidney disease found in diabetes or hypertension, the kidney tubules are a major site of injury in CKDu, suggesting a toxic etiology.

CKDu is now the second leading cause of mortality among men in El Salvador. This small, densely populated Central American country now has the highest overall mortality rate from kidney disease in the world. Neighboring Honduras and Nicaragua also have extremely high rates of kidney disease mortality. In El Salvador and Nicaragua, more men are dying from CKDu than from HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and leukemia combined. In one patch of rural Nicaragua, so many men have died that the community is called “The Island of the Widows.”

It probably works synergistically with GMO BT toxin, see http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/06/us-government-resumes-war-on-el-salvador/ and http://www.i-sis.org.uk/Bt_Toxin_Kills_Human_Kidney_Cells.php

Eugenics has a new face.  The selection criterion for populations to be eliminated is socioeconomic status, which the aristocrats believe is a proxy for genetic fitness.  Pure statism/statanism.

Book: Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa

An accepted narrative holds that horrible Rwandan Hutu génocidaires planned and executed a satanic scheme to eliminate nearly a million Tutsis after a mysterious plane crash killed the former president of Rwanda on April 6, 1994. Yet former UN Secretary General Boutros-Ghali says, “the Rwandan genocide was 100 percent American responsibility.” Where lies the truth? Based on vast research, extensive interviews, and close analysis, this fascinating account shows not only that the accepted narrative is false but also that it has been edified to cover-up the causes of the tragedy, protect the criminals responsible for it and then justify the invasion of the Congo.

The book  comprises three parts. The first part addresses the little-discussed but crucial events preceding the assassination of the presidents of Rwanda and Burundi on April 6, 1994, which triggered massive killings. These include the invasion in 1990, drawn-out guerrilla and terrorist warfare, imposition of a new political and economic order followed by an ill named “peace process” that sanctified the occupation of the country by the invading army, and the assassination of two African heads of state.

The second part, “The Heart of Dark Imaginations,” shows how popular literature on Rwanda has been built on the old clichés, metaphors, and conventions generated during 400 years of slavery, the slave trade, and colonialism, and helped justify them. The resulting narrative is perfectly crafted for the “new scramble for Africa.”

The third part takes down the so-called international criminal justice as applied to Rwanda and explains how and why the murderous, never-ending war in Congo began.

Praise

“Robin Philpot’s Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa effectively dismantles a remarkable structure of disinformation on an important area and topic and it throws light on the broader thrust of imperial policy. This book is essential reading.” Edward S. Herman, Co-author of Manufacturing Consent (with Noam Chomsky) and The Politics of Genocide (with David Peterson).

“Explosive, very daring and solidly defended … a real bomb that rocks our interpretation of the Rwandan tragedy!” Le Devoir, Montreal

“Philpot’s investigations show that behind all the words can be found an operation to destabilize and remodel the region.” Africa International, Paris.

In Slouching Towards Sirte, NATO’s War on Libya and Africa Max Forte wrote, “Everywhere is Rwanda for the humanitarian imperialist, which makes one want to know what really happened there in 1994.” This book attempts to answer that question.

Rwanda and the New Scramble for Africa, which is part of Baraka’s Africa, African Diaspora, and International Politics collection, appears as we approach the 20th anniversary of one of the worst tragedies in modern history.
