BIOGRAPHY OF JOHN WHEELER

John Wheeler is a defense consultant. He served as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment. His mission was to carry out tasks and monitor programs in support of goals as directed, and support the Air Force Secretariat with data gathering, team organization, liaison, analysis and/or options for action. Principal tasks included standing up Cyberspace Forces and placing Precision Strike technology and Real Time Streaming Video targeting links into the hands of groundfighters in combat.

Mr. Wheeler graduated from West Point in 1966, serving as a staff officer in Vietnam, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Joint Staff before leaving active service in 1971. While on active duty, he authored the first Biological and Chemical Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual and the analysis supporting the President’s decision that the U.S. will not use biologicals. He was also on the Red Integrated Strategic Operational Plan Team to test the Single Integrated Operational Plan. His career combines federal service and starting up, growing and turning around companies and charities. He was Secretary, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on the team that worked major insider trader investigations, and consultant to the acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics regarding tankers and other issues.

For President Reagan, he created the Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program, linking successful veterans with veterans needing jobs. For President G.H.W. Bush, he created the Earth Conservation Corps for at-risk youth.

He was Chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which built the Wall, and first Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, which led the 40 percent reduction in drunk driving casualties as of 2005.

He has also served as Special Counsel to the Chairman and CEO for the turnaround of Macy’s, and he helped launch charities including the Jed Foundation to prevent college suicides, Support Our Aging Religious, and the Deafness Research Foundation’s National Campaign for Hearing Health to end deafness with cochlear implants for children.

CITATION
Mr. John P. Wheeler distinguished himself by exceptionally meritorious service to the United States as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, the Pentagon, Washington, District of Columbia, from 3 November 2005 to 20 June 2008. During this period, Mr. Wheeler’s unwavering integrity, devotion to duty and steadfast leadership led to a number of successful initiatives across the Air Force.

Grasping the growing vulnerability of our weapon systems to Cyber intrusions, he worked tirelessly to drive the activation of Air Force Cyber Command. His visionary efforts were instrumental in the creation of the Cyber Research Center at the Air Force Institute of Technology; the first two graduates of the United States Air Force Academy to enter the Air Force Institute of Technology Cyber Master’s Program; the stand-up of the Air Force Cyber School; and an increased emphasis on Air Force recruitment efforts for officers and enlisted for Cyber careers.

His seasoned experience and knowledge proved invaluable as he helped formulate advice on initiatives such as Joint Basing, Recapitalization, ROVER precision strike data for Army and Marine troops, Acquisition, and a myriad of legislative initiatives facing the Air Force.

His day-to-day interactions with the Office of the Secretary of Defense enhanced relations and ensured streamlined timely responses. The singularly distinctive accomplishments of Mr. Wheeler in the dedication of service to his Country reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

Via: Delaware Online (http://www.delawareonline.com/article/20110102/NEWS/110102007/Man-whose-body-was-found-in-landfill-was-decorated-veteran):

Newark police have identified the body discovered on New Year’s Eve at the Cherry Island Landfill as 66-year-old John P. Wheeler of New Castle.

Wheeler, who lived part time in Old New Castle, worked as a defense consultant and had a long and decorated military career that involved working in the Reagan and George W. Bush administrations.

Wheeler also served as chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which built the wall in Washington, D.C.

His death has been ruled a homicide.

Newark police have had a crime scene unit at Wheeler’s home at 108 West Third St. in Old New Castle all day today, with crime-scene tape roping off the prominent three-story brick home with black shutters.

Friends and neighbors were shocked to learn Wheeler had been murdered.

“This is just not the kind of guy who gets murdered,” said Bayard Marin, a Wilmington attorney who represented Wheeler. “This is not the kind of guy you find in a landfill.”

Wheeler worked in Washington, D.C. and investigators have determined he was on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington on Tuesday, said Newark police Lt. Mark Farrall.

“The last place they can put him is getting off the Amtrak train in Wilmington,” Farrall said.

Cops: Former Bush Aide Murdered, Found in Landfill

Published January 03, 2011 | FoxNews.com

A man who fought to get the Vietnam Veterans Memorial built and served in two Bush administrations was murdered, Delaware police say.

John P. Wheeler III, 66, was found dead in a Delaware landfill, and his death has been ruled a homicide by Newark, Del., police. They are asking the public for leads in the case.

Wheeler’s body was found in Wilmington on Friday after a disposal truck containing his body made pickups in Newark.

Wheeler, who lived in New Castle, was chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund during the Ronald Reagan era. He also held many high-profile government positions after graduating from West Point in 1966.

Never Underestimate Fox
Politics
Jan 3 2011, 3:08 PM ET
Late last night I mentioned the shocking, still unexplained news that John P "Jack" Wheeler, a graduate of West Point -- and Harvard Business School and Yale Law -- who had devoted his professional life to healing the after-effects of the Vietnam war, had been murdered in Delaware.

So how does FoxNews.Com decide to present this story?



This is beyond parody. Or shame.

Jack Wheeler cared deeply about public issues, his politics were increasingly conservative, and he held jobs with the federal government under various Bush (and Reagan) administrations. But he was a "Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force" -- not some  White House aide -- in the GW Bush era, and, according to his personal CV (pdf here), was briefly part of the "Bush Transition Team to Create Earth Conservation Corps" for George HW Bush. That's his dossier in "politics." (FWIW, he also worked as a young lawyer at the SEC, starting when Jimmy Carter was in office.)

What he actually cared about was civic values and civic virtue; the health of the military; the welfare and self-respect of his fellow veterans; the future direction of great institutions where he had studied (West Point, Yale, Harvard); the long struggle to complete the Vietnam Veterans Memorial; the ongoing effort to restore ROTC programs at Harvard and other elite schools; the level of ethics in public discussion; a number of issues involving disabled children. And more. Recently he paid increasing attention to the nuances of the "cyberwar" threat, and the rise of China. He was a very complicated man, of many parts. But if you gave me ten hours to come up with a thousand descriptions of him, I still would not have thought of.... "Former Bush Aide."

That's the thought that came first to Fox. This tells me more than any number of critiques about the ways Fox differs from a "news" organization.

I am very saddened by Jack Wheeler's loss, but I'm angry that his life would be reduced to a little marker in the neverending partisan wars.

UPDATE: I see that New York Magazine, MSNBC, and some other outlets have also gone with variations on "Former Bush & Reagan Aide," but based on what I can tell from the Google News history, Fox was the first to use that ID.   


John P Wheeler III

Jan 3 2011, 1:26 AM ET
I was stunned to learn tonight that my long-time friend Jack Wheeler has been murdered in Delaware. He was last seen getting off an Amtrak train from Washington at the Wilmington, DE, station this past Tuesday night; then, as a gruesome and cryptic local story recounts, his body was found nearby in a landfill on New Year's Eve.

Here is Jack in the early 1980s, when I first got to know him. Below, a more recent picture.

 


If you read Rick Atkinson's book The Long Gray Line, about the West Point Class of 1966, you will know something of Wheeler's  story. Generations-long military-officer heritage; West Point '66 grad; service in Vietnam; then Harvard Business School and Yale Law School; and a rest-of-his-life effort to address what he called the "40 year open wound" of Vietnam-era soldiers being spurned by the society that sent them to war.

I worked with Jack on a book called Touched With Fire, about the post-war experiences of people who were in uniform during Vietnam and people who (like me) were actively opposing the war. He was chairman of the committee that got the Vietnam Veterans Memorial built. That is now taken as a great, triumphant icon of commemorative architecture, but at the time the "black gash of shame" was bitterly controversial, and Jack Wheeler was in the middle of the controversy -- raising money, getting approvals, collecting allies and placating critics until the wall was built. A few days before it opened he called to invite me to be one of the readers who would, over a long stretch of hours, take turns saying aloud the names of every person recorded on the wall.

He was a complicated man of very intense (and sometimes changeable) friendships, passions, and causes. His most recent crusade was to bring ROTC back to elite campuses, as noted here. That is what I was corresponding with him about  in recent months. To be within email range of Jack was to look forward to frequent, lengthy, often urgent-sounding and often overwrought dispatches on the state of the struggle. Late at night on Christmas Day, I was surprised to see this simple note from him:
>>Jim, Merry Christmas, Old Friend. Onward and upward.

Jack<<
I replied -- thank goodness!, I now think -- and assumed I would hear more from him soon on the ROTC struggle.

I have no idea what kind of trouble he may have encountered. As a lawyer quoted in the Delaware Online story said, "This is just not the kind of guy that gets murdered." I feel terrible for his family and hope they will eventually find comfort in knowing how many important things he achieved.

The author of the first book, John Wheeler, is a leading spokesman for the veterans of the Vietnam War. His book is a highly personal and idiosyncratic mix of exhortation, meditation, and memories. The MacPherson book is about the impact of the Vietnam War on the lives of those who fought and those who chose not to go. It is oral history on a grand scale and, like the subject, it is emotional, untidy and infinitely sad.

Vietnam: The Retrospect: Coming to Grips with Vietnam
By John Wheeler
Spring 1985
http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/39623/john-wheeler/vietnam-the-retrospect-coming-to-grips-with-vietnam

Summary:  The events of the Vietnam era significantly defined the generation that came of age during that period and is now emerging as a mature force in American life. How our country finally comes to grips with Vietnam will depend on how the Vietnam generation comes to grips with its own experiences. The results will determine for decades how well America faces up to questions of war and peace, and of international relief, development and cooperation.
John Wheeler is Chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the group that built the memorial on the Mall in Washington, D.C. He is the author of Touched With Fire: The Future of the Vietnam Generation, and currently serves as Secretary of the Securities and Exchange Commission. He is President of the Project on the Vietnam Generation, a non-profit effort to foster scholarship on the generation's dynamics.

The events of the Vietnam era significantly defined the generation that came of age during that period and is now emerging as a mature force in American life. How our country finally comes to grips with Vietnam will depend on how the Vietnam generation comes to grips with its own experiences. The results will determine for decades how well America faces up to questions of war and peace, and of international relief, development and cooperation.

Vietnam was both a war abroad and an interconnected series of traumatic changes at home. There was the heady idealism of civil rights "freedom rides," the Peace Corps and the Green Berets. But there were also the war, then war protest; assassinations; civil strife; ascendancy of the women’s rights and the environmental movements; and the disillusion of Watergate—a debacle rooted in the attempts of White House "plumbers" to stop leaks of Vietnam-related information. These events marked the arrival at maturity of most of the "baby boomers": 60 million men and women whose parents grew up in the Depression and bore the brunt of American fighting in World War II. There is a certain tension between the two generations, in the contrast between World War II and the Vietnam War, between the two anniversaries of 1985—the fortieth anniversary of the end of World War II and the tenth anniversary of the fall of Saigon.

The turbulence of war and its domestic repercussions tend to govern the later life of the generation that comes of age during the conflict. In Europe, World War I and the caustic effects of Versailles profoundly influenced the attitudes of the generation that was young at the turn of the century and fought that war. The loss of life and bleak experiences in the trenches of Flanders and Verdun affected both the literature and the emerging statesmen of the generation who would become leaders in World War II. Not the least significant result was the strain of pacifism that drove Britain’s appeasement of Hitler. And, on the German side, the ruthless nationalism of Hitler—a World War I veteran—and his Nazi apparatus had its roots in the perceived unfairness of the burden of reparations and the war guilt assigned at Versailles. More recently, we have seen the effect of the attitudes and policies of an aging Soviet leadership, a generation seared by the struggle on its own soil during World War II.

John Parsons Wheeler, Jr.
Colonel, United States Army   
http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/jpwheel.htm

From a contemporary news report:

"John Parsons Wheeler, Jr., an authority on Armor operations and a veteran of three wars, died September 29, 1995 of heart ailments at Perry Point Veterans Medical Center, Virginia. He was 77.

"Perhaps the highest-profile venture in his career was heading the American tank unit during World War II that discovered the damaged Ramagen Rail Bridge in 1945. Allied troops used the bridge as one of the spearheads to cross into Germany near the end of the war. "His unit found the bridge intact and then spent the next several days defending it from air attacks by Messerschmitts who tried to destroy it in order to keep the Allied forces from crossing the Rhine into Germany," said a son, John P. Wheeler III of Washington, D.C.

"Colonel Wheeler, an Aberdeen, Maryland, resident, was the son of a cavalry officer at Fort Bliss, Texas. He was descended from a family with military roots going back to 1653 when Thomas Wheeler was a member of the British Royal Army. "The irony is that he grew up riding ponies as a child with one of the last Cavalry units and came to be one of the last experts who fought in the great tank battles of World War II," his son said.

"Colonel Wheeler, who had graduted from West Point in 1943 and was a Tank Company Commander of the 19th Battalion of the 9th Armored Division, went ashore at Normandy on D-Day (June 6, 1944) and participated in the Battle of the Bulge. His unit also prticipated in the liberation of the Nordhausen death camp. He served with the European occupation forces nd in the demilitarized zone in Korea.

"During the Vietnam War, he ran the secret war against the Ho Chi Mihn Trail from Laos and also server as an adviser," said the son, who graduated from West Point in 1966.

"An authority on armor operations and training, Colonel Wheeler was Director of Material Testing at Aberdeen Proving Ground and retired in 1971. His medals included the Legion of Merit with Oakleaf Cluster for outstanding service in Southeast Asia; the Belgian Croix de Guerre with Silver Star; the Bronze Star for valor, the Purple Heart and the Air Medal. 

"For the past 20 years he was a consultant with Cypress International of Virginia on the development of military weapons. He had made contributions to the development of the M-1 Abrams Tank, which was used during Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf War. An avid horseman, he played polo during the 1950s with the Washington Polo Club. He also enjoyed sailing and was a member of the Army-Navy Club. 

"Services with full military honors are scheduled for the Old Post Chapel at Fort Myer, Virginia, with burial in Arlington National Cemetery."

Aberdeen scandal
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aberdeen_scandal

The Aberdeen Scandal was a military sex scandal in 1996 at Aberdeen Proving Ground, a United States Army base in Maryland. The Army brought charges against 12 commissioned and non-commissioned male officers for sexual assault on female trainees under their command.


Charges brought against the officers

Captain Derrick Robertson and Sergeants Delmar Simpson and Nathanael Beech were accused of participating in the Army's biggest sex abuse scandal on record. Robertson and Simpson faced rape charges and Beech was charged with adultery.[1] Army Secretary Togo West accused those charged of abusing their power, and ordered all soldiers to undergo sexual harassment training so they could learn the Army's "zero tolerance" policy towards sexual harassment. The men accused felt that statements made by West and other officials within the army were prejudging the case and would result in an unfair trial. Robertson's attorney, Jerome Murphy, asked the judge, Military Judge Linda Webster, to enact a gag order on West and others, but she deferred judgment. However, she did order prospective jurors not to follow media coverage of the case to avoid interference with their judgment.[1] Others charged included Staff Sergeants Loren Taylor and Anthony Fore, Sergeant George Blackley, a captain, two other sergeants, and four other non-commissioned officers.

Sentencing

Staff Sergeant Vernell Robinson Jr., who had been accused of 19 counts involving the abuse of five women under his command, including sodomy, adultery, communicating a threat, obstructing justice and disobeying orders, was sentenced to six months in prison, demoted to private, forfeited all benefits and expelled from the Army with a dishonorable discharge.[2] Robertson was sentenced to four months in prison after pleading guilty to adultery, sodomy and other offenses. The heaviest punishment was brought against Simpson. A military trial found him guilty of 18 counts of rape against six women trainees and 29 other offenses. He was sentenced to 25 years in military prison. The key to the conviction was "constructive force," in which even seemingly consensual sex can be termed rape, given the power differences between the participants.

Aftermath

Since the charges were filed, the U.S. Army set up a hotline to take reports of sexual harassment in the military. It has also made available many resources for soldiers who feel they have been harassed or assaulted.[3] Supervisors were also barred from having romantic relationships with the soldiers they trained. The Army cited the fact that they cannot be sure if all relationships are consensual due to the nature of a supervisor's power over their trainees.[4]

Mercenaries IN KOSOVO: The U.S. connection to the KLA.
http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Mercenaries+IN+KOSOVO%3A+The+U.S.+connection+to+the+KLA.-a055309049
Wayne Madsen

Meeting in the fourth floor conference room of a quaint red brick office building in a quiet section of Alexandria, Virginia, a group of retired generals discussed military support for a U.S. ally. The topic of the day: how to train and equip a shadowy guerrilla group accused by the State Department of being a terrorist organization.

The military men knew that the Drug Enforcement Administration suspected the guerrillas of smuggling high-grade Afghan heroin into North America and Western Europe. Police agencies across Europe had been alerted to the links among the rebels and the Sicilian, Calabrian, Neapolitan, and Russian mafias.

Was this the setting for a Tom Clancy novel? Or was it a flashback to one of the numerous secret meetings attended by the likes of Richard Secord and Oliver North during the Iran-contra scandal of the 1980s?

Actually, it was neither. It was a real life and present-day strategy session at MPRI (formerly known as Military Professional Resources, Inc.). Its client: the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA).

MPRI is one of a handful of Pentagon contractors known as private military companies providing support to the KLA, according to retired Army Colonel David Hackworth, in an interview with Fox News's Catherine Crier. According to Hackworth, MPRI has used former U.S. military personnel to train KLA forces at secret bases inside Albania.

According to its web site, MPRI was founded as a Delaware-based corporation in 1987 by eight retired military officers. Its present board of directors is a virtual Who's Who of retired Pentagon brass. Members include one retired admiral, two retired major generals, and ten retired generals. One of those is former U.S. Army Chief of Staff General Carl E. Vuono. MPRI employs more than 400 personnel and, more importantly, has access to the resumes of thousands of former U.S. military specialists, from Green Berets and helicopter pilots to supply clerks and cooks. The firm--which, according to Jane's Intelligence Review, is involved in internal conflicts in Angola and the Congo, as well as the Balkans--did more than $48 million in business in 1997. MPRI's motto is: "Our integrity is our most treasured asset."

Some of the military leadership of the KLA includes veterans of MPRI-planned Operations Storm and Strike, 1995 Croatian military offensives that resulted in the ethnic cleansing of Serbs from eastern Croatia. One former CIA official confided that he is not surprised that MPRI is now involved with the KLA. "It fits the pattern," he said.

The military commander of the KLA, Agim Ceku, is a former brigadier general in the Croatian army, and, according to the London Independent's Robert Fisk, an "ethnic cleanser" in his own right. Along with MPRI military advisers, Ceku helped plan the Croatian offensive that drove some 350,000 Croatian Serbs from Krajina province. Croatian forces also destroyed more than 10,000 Croatian Serb homes.

Another KLA leader is Xhavit Haliti, who is not even a Kosovar. He is a former officer of the dreaded Albanian secret police, the Sigurimi, an entity that has chalked up innumerable human rights violations inside Albania.

KLA leaders have been accused of assassinating moderate Kosovo Albanians, including some of those who agreed to the Rambouillet peace accords. In fact, according to Albanian State Television, the KLA had sentenced to death in absentia Ibrahim Rugova, the democratically elected president of the Republic of Kosovo. (The KLA boycotted the election he won in 1998.) Apparently, Rugova, whose government-in-exile signed the Rambouillet accord, was too moderate for the KLA.

Until last year, the KLA was regarded as a terrorist organization by the State Department.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported last May that "officers of the Kosovo Liberation Army and their backers, according to law enforcement authorities in Western Europe and the United States, are a major force in international organized crime, moving staggering amounts of narcotics through an underworld network that reaches into the heart of Europe."

The Congressional Record indicates that the United States may have actually shipped arms to Serbia and Montenegro in the name of the War on Drugs. In the aftermath of the Dayton Accords on Bosnia, the Clinton Administration viewed Milosevic as an ally against America's other great enemy: international drug dealing.

Testifying before the House National Security, International Affairs, and Criminal Justice Subcommittee on May 1, 1997, Clinton's drug czar General Barry McCaffrey stated he wanted several Congressional "614 waivers," or what are called "national interest waivers," to ship weapons to various nations, including some with questionable human rights records. "I have fourteen waivers that the President granted ... for Serbia, Montenegro, Haiti, Somalia, Jordan, the list goes on and on," McCaffrey told the panel headed up by a then little-known Illinois Republican Representative named Dennis Hastert, now Speaker of the House. Hastert said he personally was "very supportive" of McCaffrey getting the money for the arms on a "long-term basis," or whatever basis he needed to get weapons to the Serbs and Montenegrins under file provisions of both the Foreign Military Sales program and the waiver provision.

There was apparently some delay in shipping the arms to those countries, and this annoyed Hastert, who pressed McCaffrey at the hearing to hurry up and see that the weapons made their way to their intended destination.

Hastert may have helped the weapons get into the hands of Serbia's Special Police and similar paramilitary forces in Montenegro. One month after pressing McCaffrey on the weapons waivers, Hastert told the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee that the waiver process was "under way." McCaffrey's Office of National Drug Control Policy has chosen to remain mum on the subject.

These days, no one in Washington is pressing for aid to the Serbs. During the recent conflict between NATO and Serbia over Kosovo, the U.S. government changed its position on the KLA. U.S. officials shoved aside more moderate representatives of the Kosovar Albanians in favor of KLA guerrillas during negotiations with Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic.

Still, "suspicion of criminal associations taints the KLA's newly acquired legitimacy and clouds its recent efforts to press NATO for money, guns, and other supplies," The Wall Street Journal reports. "NATO so far has said no, despite concern that the refusal will only entrench the KLA's reliance on murky groups and make it less suitable for a role in a postwar Kosovo government."

One of those "murky groups," not mentioned in The Wall Street Journal article, is Washington's own MPRI.

MPRI has been involved in the Balkans for years. In 1996, after the ethnic cleansing in Krajina, MPRI received a $400 million State Department contract to "train and equip" the Bosnian Croat-Muslim Federation Army.

In a caper reminiscent of the Reagan Administration's solicitation of funds for the contras, the United States managed to get Saudi Arabia, Brunei, Malaysia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates to pony up more than one-fourth of the cost of the Bosnian military contract. Retired Major General Walter Yates runs MPRI's Bosnian operation, which is officially known as the Military Stabilization Program. The company's good fortunes in the Balkans are advertised on the firm's web page. The page shows a map headlined "Where in the World Is MPRI?" Arrows pinpoint Croatia, Bosnia, and Macedonia as centers of MPRI activity. Serbia is also mentioned as a country where MPRI mercenaries are active. MPRI has also helped set up a number of arms factories and military training schools in Bosnia that are staffed by veterans of the Croatian war against Serbia as well as Bosnian Croats and Muslims.

In early April, MPRI was caught off-guard when Bosnia's army arranged for millions of dollars worth of arms to be secretly transferred from Bosnian caches to KLA guerrillas in Kosovo and Yugoslav Muslims in the province of Sandzak. As a result of the arms transfers, the State Department "temporarily suspended" MPRI's "train and equip" program.

Retired Rear Admiral Eugene J. Carroll Jr., deputy director of the Center for Defense Information, says such weapons traffic is a predictable side effect of mercenary companies like MPRI. "The military loses control of material twice. First, they turn it over to a commercial enterprise, and they turn it over again," he says.

When it comes to supplying arms, MPRI has a fortunate next door neighbor on the fourth floor of its Alexandria headquarters--Cypress International. Cypress is a well-known international weapons broker. MPRI shares one other thing with its arms-dealing neighbor: retired Major General Vernon Lewis, a member of MPRI's board of directors, is the founder of Cypress.

MPRI does not have a monopoly on the lucrative mercenary business in southeastern Europe. Last year, MPRI bid for a Pentagon contract to help oversee the withdrawal of Serb forces from Kosovo. But the Pentagon awarded the booty to DynCorp, another big-league military contractor playing in the private military company world. In addition to retired military personnel, DynCorp also actively recruits police officers for peacekeeping missions requiring a more civilian profile. DynCorp prides itself on being able to rapidly respond to the U.S. government's procurement morass to get personnel quickly to trouble spots like the Balkans. Its web site proclaims: "In Kosovo, seventy-five peacekeepers were deployed from the U.S. thirteen days after providing a quote."

Another U.S. company involved in the mercenary business in the Balkans is Science Applications International Corporation, a contractor that counts many former CIA and National Security Agency types in its ranks as military personnel. The company, along with another contractor, BDM International, lost out to MPRI for the lucrative Bosnia training deal.

Science Applications International has former National Security Agency director Bobby Ray Inman and two other retired generals on its board of directors. These are individuals with one of the most important commodities in Washington--access.

The firm has attempted to corner the market on foreign police training. Its web page states it provides support for the Justice Department's International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program (ICITAP or "Icky-Tap") by giving training and logistical support to "friendly foreign law enforcement organizations in high profile environments." This includes Bosnia.

ICITAP was primarily the brainchild of David Kriskovich--a Science Applications International employee and twenty-six-year veteran of the FBI. ICITAP suffered a severe blow in September 1997 when Kriskovich and four other Americans were killed in a helicopter crash in Bosnia.

ICITAP may serve as a cover for U.S. intelligence operations. Janice Stromsem, a career employee of the Justice Department who served as ICITAP's director, resisted the program's takeover by CIA elements. In February, Stromsem was relieved of her duties after complaining to the Justice Department Inspector General that ICITAP was being used by the CIA to recruit agents among foreign police officials.

And that raises the fundamental question about these private military companies: Just how private are they? The CIA itself was involved in training KLA guerrillas at clandestine bases. This operation was authorized by a "Presidential finding," according to a report on CNN's The World Today. With all the high-ranking former officials in these companies, you have to wonder who is actually calling the shots.

The shenanigans of the Reagan Administration's secret war against Nicaragua were uncovered thanks mainly to the ability of Congress and the press to gain access to government documents. Don't expect the same outcome with the Clinton Administration's secret plans to arm the KLA. The fact that so many of the operations are conducted by private mercenary firms means that the Freedom of Information Act does not apply. Companies supplying the KLA can argue that such information is proprietary and, therefore, they can block or stymie access to inquisitive Congressional investigators and reporters.

These private military companies subvert our democracy. According to Admiral Carroll, they "put the U.S. Military Assistance Program one reach removed from government agencies." Seeing the ease with which military privateers can operate virtually unhindered in the Balkans with the full support of the Administration and Congress alike, the veterans of Iran-contra must be green with envy.

RELATED ARTICLE: Clinton's Contras

You might think that members of Congress who vociferously opposed clandestine U.S. military support for the contras in the 1980s would object to similar support for the KLA in the 1990s. Think again.

In 1989, the Senate's Subcommittee on Narcotics, Terrorism, and International Operations issued a report condemning the Reagan Administration's support for the contras and their drug-running activities. The report stated: "U.S. officials involved in Central America failed to address the drug issue for fear of jeopardizing the war effort against Nicaragua." The report also said: "The war on drugs must not in the future be sacrificed to other foreign policy considerations."

The main author of that 1989 report was Senator John Kerry, Democrat of Massachusetts. He was upset about clandestine U.S. military support for the contras, which were using proceeds garnered from drug trafficking to help finance their war against Nicaragua. With ample evidence that the KLA is funding its operations through heroin and cocaine smuggling from Albania to Western Europe and North America, it is interesting to note Senator Kerry's statements now. "We could conceivably arm the Albanians.... I would make it very clear we are prepared to use anything necessary to achieve our goal," Kerry stated. Later, backing away from outright military support, a spokesperson for Kerry said the Senator feels that arming the KLA should not be an option for the United States.

Kerry's phrase, "using anything necessary," echoes the rationale Oliver North used to support the contras. Kerry's report said that Oliver North's proposals to look the other way on drugs was evidence of "the potential appeal of drug profits for persons engaged in covert activity."

Kerry's 1989 findings were endorsed by then-Senator William Cohen, Republican of Maine. Now Defense Secretary, Cohen has played a key role in clandestine military support for the Albanian rebels.

The new command, to be based at Ft. Meade, Md., will be run by the head of the National Security Agency, Army Lt. Gen. Keith B. Alexander. In a memo, Gates recommended Alexander be promoted as part of the creation of the command.

Although Pentagon officials emphasized the command's defensive orientation, experts said the reorganization would improve coordination of both offensive and defensive cyber capabilities.

"For a long time, the Pentagon has acknowledged cyber is a war-fighting domain," said James Andrew Lewis, a scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "This will bring the offensive and defensive sides of the house together."

John Wheeler, a former special assistant to the Air Force secretary who worked on computer network issues, said the new command was a signal that the Obama administration was taking the issue seriously.

"The good news is we are bringing the issues into the public domain," Wheeler said

But Wheeler said the Pentagon was embroiled in a turf battle between intelligence officers and military commanders over who should control the effort.

The intelligence community is dominating the new Cyber Command, but Wheeler said it eventually should be led by someone with a military operations background

"You need war-fighter DNA to do this," Wheeler said. "We will get this right when we have had our first combat in cyberspace."

The Defense Department has avoided emphasizing the new command's offensive mission out of concern that the Pentagon will be seen as militarizing cyberspace.

"There is the fear the Department of Defense will take over the Internet," Lewis said. "They don't want this to be misinterpreted."

Some also fear that foreign governments, convinced the U.S. is conducting offensive operations in cyberspace, could step up their own network attacks, or resist international pressure to halt them.

The command will begin its initial operation in October, and is scheduled to begin full operations a year later.

So here it is they say the will attack things on the internet but the real question is who will be on the list.
One day they could be mad at Alex for spreading truth and hack the page and shut him down or even your personal website or blog so make sure you have backups if you need it.

Overview

As tensions on the Korean peninsula rise after an international investigation found that North Korea was responsible for the sinking of a South Korean warship, a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) Independent Task Force warns that North Korea's continued provocations pose a serious threat to its neighbors and that its nuclear weapons program must be stopped. "The United States must seek to resolve rather than simply manage the challenge posed by a nuclear North Korea," asserts the Task Force.

"Excellent."
--Nelson Report

In its report, U.S. Policy Toward the Korean Peninsula, the Task Force emphasizes that "despite the difficulty of the challenge, the danger posed by North Korea is sufficiently severe, and the costs of inaction and acquiescence so high, that the United States and its partners must continue to press for denuclearization." The United States cannot risk "the potential spread of nuclear weapons to rogue states, terrorist groups or others--especially in the Middle East."

The Task Force says that the United States also must provide leadership with its regional partners to "coordinate actions designed to contain th e spillover effects of possible North Korean instability while insisting that North Korea give up its destabilizing course of action." It recommends that contingency planning be prioritized: "Given the uncertainties and associated risks related to North Korea's future, it is necessary and sensible for its neighbors to consider the possibility of volatility in North Korea and plan for its possible effects."

The bipartisan Task Force, chaired by former special envoy for negotiations with North Korea Charles L. "Jack" Pritchard and former commander of UN Command/U.S. Forces Korea John H. Tilelli Jr., and directed by CFR Adjunct Senior Fellow Scott A. Snyder, is comprised of roughly two dozen distinguished experts representing a wide variety of backgrounds. The report commends the U.S.-South Korean partnership and applauds the close alliance coordination following the ship incident. The Task Force urges the passage of the South Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement, which it says is good for America and would send a strong message of support for South Korea.


While each member of the Six Party talks--China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea, and the United States--has its own concerns, "any hope of resolving the North Korean standoff will depend on all parties cooperating with one another and being firm with North Korea." The report emphasizes that "Chinese cooperation is essential to the success of denuclearization on the Korean peninsula and to ensuring regional stability."

The report makes several specific recommendations, including calling for the establishment of a dialogue with China about the future of the Korean peninsula, bilateral talks with North Korea regarding missile development, and close consultations with allies South Korea and Japan. The report recommends that the Obama administration prioritize its approach to North Korea in the following order.

Prevent horizontal proliferation: "The United States and its allies should heighten vigilance against the possibility of a transfer of nuclear weapons technologies or fissile material from North Korea and strengthen the capacity to carry out effective counterproliferation measures."

Stop vertical proliferation: "North Korea's unconstrained efforts to develop a missile delivery capability for its nuclear arsenal would dramatically expand its ability to threaten its neighbors and further complicate prospects for reversing its nuclear program."

Denuclearize: "The debate over nonproliferation versus denuclearization is a false choice; the United States and its partners can and must do both by containing proliferation while also pressing for denuclearization."


The Task Force recommends that the United States seek ways to integrate North Korea into the international community, including through cultural and academic exchanges. "The Obama administration should change long-standing U.S. policies blocking North Korea's participation in activities of international financial institutions," notes the report. It also condemns North Korea's abysmal human rights record: "North Korea's shameful human rights situation and failure to meet the needs of its people is a human tragedy that should be addressed by U.S. humanitarian assistance and other measures to improve human rights conditions inside North Korea."

The JINSA Connection



The Men From JINSA and CSP
http://www.aljazeerah.info/Documents/The%20Men%20from%20JINSA%20and%20CSP,%20by%20Jason%20Vest.htm      
By JASON VEST
The Nation (9/2/2002), Alternet (1997)*

Almost thirty years ago, a prominent group of neo-conservative hawks found an effective vehicle for advocating their views via the Committee on the Present Danger, a group that fervently believed the United States was a hair away from being militarily surpassed by the Soviet Union, and whose raison d'tre was strident advocacy of bigger military budgets, near-fanatical opposition to any form of arms control and zealous championing of a Likudnik Israel. Considered a marginal group in its nascent days during the Carter Administration, with the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980 CPD went from the margins to the center of power.

Just as the right-wing defense intellectuals made CPD a cornerstone of a shadow defense establishment during the Carter Administration, so, too, did the right during the Clinton years, in part through two organizations: the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) and the Center for Security Policy (CSP). And just as was the case two decades ago, dozens of their members have ascended to powerful government posts, where their advocacy in support of the same agenda continues, abetted by the out-of-government adjuncts from which they came. Industrious and persistent, they've managed to weave a number of issues--support for national missile defense, opposition to arms control treaties, championing of wasteful weapons systems, arms aid to Turkey and American unilateralism in general--into a hard line, with support for the Israeli right at its core.

On no issue is the JINSA/CSP hard line more evident than in its relentless campaign for war--not just with Iraq, but "total war," as Michael Ledeen, one of the most influential JINSAns in Washington, put it last year. For this crew, "regime change" by any means necessary in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority is an urgent imperative. Anyone who dissents--be it Colin Powell's State Department, the CIA or career military officers--is committing heresy against articles of faith that effectively hold there is no difference between US and Israeli national security interests, and that the only way to assure continued safety and prosperity for both countries is through hegemony in the Middle East--a hegemony achieved with the traditional cold war recipe of feints, force, clientism and covert action.

For example, the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board--chaired by JINSA/CSP adviser and former Reagan Administration Defense Department official Richard Perle, and stacked with advisers from both groups--recently made news by listening to a briefing that cast Saudi Arabia as an enemy to be brought to heel through a number of potential mechanisms, many of which mirror JINSA's recommendations, and which reflect the JINSA/CSP crowd's preoccupation with Egypt. (The final slide of the Defense Policy Board presentation proposed that "Grand Strategy for the Middle East" should concentrate on "Iraq as the tactical pivot, Saudi Arabia as the strategic pivot [and] Egypt as the prize.") Ledeen has been leading the charge for regime change in Iran, while old comrades like Andrew Marshall and Harold Rhode in the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment actively tinker with ways to re-engineer both the Iranian and Saudi governments. JINSA is also cheering the US military on as it tries to secure basing rights in the strategic Red Sea country of Eritrea, happily failing to mention that the once-promising secular regime of President Isaiais Afewerki continues to slide into the kind of repressive authoritarianism practiced by the "axis of evil" and its adjuncts.

Indeed, there are some in military and intelligence circles who have taken to using "axis of evil" in reference to JINSA and CSP, along with venerable repositories of hawkish thinking like the American Enterprise Institute and the Hudson Institute, as well as defense contractors, conservative foundations and public relations entities underwritten by far-right American Zionists (all of which help to underwrite JINSA and CSP). It's a milieu where ideology and money seamlessly blend: "Whenever you see someone identified in print or on TV as being with the Center for Security Policy or JINSA championing a position on the grounds of ideology or principle--which they are unquestionably doing with conviction--you are, nonetheless, not informed that they're also providing a sort of cover for other ideologues who just happen to stand to profit from hewing to the Likudnik and Pax Americana lines," says a veteran intelligence officer. He notes that while the United States has begun a phaseout of civilian aid to Israel that will end by 2007, government policy is to increase military aid by half the amount of civilian aid that's cut each year--which is not only a boon to both the US and Israeli weapons industries but is also crucial to realizing the far right's vision for missile defense and the Middle East.
Founded in 1976 by neoconservatives concerned that the United States might not be able to provide Israel with adequate military supplies in the event of another Arab-Israeli war, over the past twenty-five years JINSA has gone from a loose-knit proto-group to a $1.4-million-a-year operation with a formidable array of Washington power players on its rolls. Until the beginning of the current Bush Administration, JINSA's board of advisers included such heavy hitters as Dick Cheney, John Bolton (now Under Secretary of State for Arms Control) and Douglas Feith, the third-highest-ranking executive in the Pentagon. Both Perle and former Director of Central Intelligence James Woolsey, two of the loudest voices in the attack-Iraq chorus, are still on the board, as are such Reagan-era relics as Jeane Kirkpatrick, Eugene Rostow and Ledeen--Oliver North's Iran/contra liaison with the Israelis.

According to its website, JINSA exists to "educate the American public about the importance of an effective US defense capability so that our vital interests as Americans can be safeguarded" and to "inform the American defense and foreign affairs community about the important role Israel can and does play in bolstering democratic interests in the Mediterranean and the Middle East." In practice, this translates into its members producing a steady stream of op-eds and reports that have been good indicators of what the Pentagon's civilian leadership is thinking.

JINSA relishes denouncing virtually any type of contact between the US government and Syria and finding new ways to demonize the Palestinians. To give but one example (and one that kills two birds with one stone): According to JINSA, not only is Yasir Arafat in control of all violence in the occupied territories, but he orchestrates the violence solely "to protect Saddam.... Saddam is at the moment Arafat's only real financial supporter.... [Arafat] has no incentive to stop the violence against Israel and allow the West to turn its attention to his mentor and paymaster." And if there's a way to advance other aspects of the far-right agenda by intertwining them with Israeli interests, JINSA doesn't hesitate there, either. A recent report contends that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge must be tapped because "the Arab oil-producing states" are countries "with interests inimical to ours," but Israel "stand[s ] with us when we need [Israel]," and a US policy of tapping oil under ANWR will "limit [the Arabs'] ability to do damage to either of us."

The bulk of JINSA's modest annual budget is spent on taking a bevy of retired US generals and admirals to Israel, where JINSA facilitates meetings between Israeli officials and the still-influential US flag officers, who, upon their return to the States, happily write op-eds and sign letters and advertisements championing the Likudnik line. (Sowing seeds for the future, JINSA also takes US service academy cadets to Israel each summer and sponsors a lecture series at the Army, Navy and Air Force academies.) In one such statement, issued soon after the outbreak of the latest intifada, twenty-six JINSAns of retired flag rank, including many from the advisory board, struck a moralizing tone, characterizing Palestinian violence as a "perversion of military ethics" and holding that "America's role as facilitator in this process should never yield to America's responsibility as a friend to Israel," as "friends don't leave friends on the battlefield."

However high-minded this might sound, the postservice associations of the letter's signatories--which are almost always left off the organization's website and communiqus--ought to require that the phrase be amended to say "friends don't leave friends on the battlefield, especially when there's business to be done and bucks to be made." Almost every retired officer who sits on JINSA's board of advisers or has participated in its Israel trips or signed a JINSA letter works or has worked with military contractors who do business with the Pentagon and Israel. While some keep a low profile as self-employed "consultants" and avoid mention of their clients, others are less shy about their associations, including with the private mercenary firm Military Professional Resources International, weapons broker and military consultancy Cypress International and SY Technology, whose main clients include the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency, which oversees several ongoing joint projects with Israel.

  

The behemoths of military contracting are also well represented in JINSA's ranks. For example, JINSA advisory board members Adm. Leon Edney, Adm. David Jeremiah and Lieut. Gen. Charles May, all retired, have served Northrop Grumman or its subsidiaries as either consultants or board members. Northrop Grumman has built ships for the Israeli Navy and sold F-16 avionics and E-2C Hawkeye planes to the Israeli Air Force (as well as the Longbow radar system to the Israeli army for use in its attack helicopters). It also works with Tamam, a subsidiary of Israeli Aircraft Industries, to produce an unmanned aerial vehicle. Lockheed Martin has sold more than $2 billion worth of F-16s to Israel since 1999, as well as flight simulators, multiple-launch rocket systems and Seahawk heavyweight torpedoes. At one time or another, General May, retired Lieut. Gen. Paul Cerjan and retired Adm. Carlisle Trost have labored in LockMart's vineyards. Trost has also sat on the board of General Dynamics, whose Gulfstream subsidiary has a $206 million contract to supply planes to Israel to be used for "special electronics missions."

By far the most profitably diversified of the JINSAns is retired Adm. David Jeremiah. President and partner of Technology Strategies & Alliances Corporation (described as a "strategic advisory firm and investment banking firm engaged primarily in the aerospace, defense, telecommunications and electronics industries"), Jeremiah also sits on the boards of Northrop Grumman's Litton subsidiary and of defense giant Alliant Techsystems, which--in partnership with Israel's TAAS--does a brisk business in rubber bullets. And he has a seat on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board, chaired by Perle.

About the only major defense contractor without a presence on JINSA's advisory board is Boeing, which has had a relationship with Israeli Aircraft Industries for thirty years. (Boeing also sells F-15s to Israel and, in partnership with Lockheed Martin, Apache attack helicopters, a ubiquitous weapon in the occupied territories.) But take a look at JINSA's kindred spirit in things pro-Likud and pro-Star Wars, the Center for Security Policy, and there on its national security advisory council are Stanley Ebner, a former Boeing executive; Andrew Ellis, vice president for government relations; and Carl Smith, a former staff director of the Senate Armed Services Committee who, as a lawyer in private practice, has counted Boeing among his clients. "JINSA and CSP," says a veteran Pentagon analyst, "may as well be one and the same."

Not a hard sell: There's always been considerable overlap beween the JINSA and CSP rosters--JINSA advisers Jeane Kirkpatrick, Richard Perle and Phyllis Kaminsky also serve on CSP's advisory council; current JINSA advisory board chairman David Steinmann sits on CSP's board of directors; and before returning to the Pentagon Douglas Feith served as the board's chair. At this writing, twenty-two CSP advisers--including additional Reagan-era remnants like Elliott Abrams, Ken deGraffenreid, Paula Dobriansky, Sven Kraemer, Robert Joseph, Robert Andrews and J.D. Crouch--have reoccupied key positions in the national security establishment, as have other true believers of more recent vintage.

While CSP boasts an impressive advisory list of hawkish luminaries, its star is Frank Gaffney, its founder, president and CEO. A protege of Perle going back to their days as staffers for the late Senator Henry "Scoop" Jackson (a k a the Senator from Boeing, and the Senate's most zealous champion of Israel in his day), Gaffney later joined Perle at the Pentagon, only to be shown the door by Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci in 1987, not long after Perle left. Gaffney then reconstituted the latest incarnation of the Committee on the Present Danger. Beyond compiling an A-list of influential conservative hawks, Gaffney has been prolific over the past fifteen years, churning out a constant stream of reports (as well as regular columns for the Washington Times) making the case that the gravest threats to US national security are China, Iraq, still-undeveloped ballistic missiles launched by rogue states, and the passage of or adherence to virtually any form of arms control treaty.

Gaffney and CSP's prescriptions for national security have been fairly simple: Gut all arms control treaties, push ahead with weapons systems virtually everyone agrees should be killed (such as the V-22 Osprey), give no quarter to the Palestinians and, most important, go full steam ahead on just about every national missile defense program. (CSP was heavily represented on the late-1990s Commission to Assess the Ballistic Missile Threat to the United States, which was instrumental in keeping the program alive during the Clinton years.)

Looking at the center's affiliates, it's not hard to see why: Not only are makers of the Osprey (Boeing) well represented on the CSP's board of advisers but so too is Lockheed Martin (by vice president for space and strategic missiles Charles Kupperman and director of defense systems Douglas Graham). Former TRW executive Amoretta Hoeber is also a CSP adviser, as is former Congressman and Raytheon lobbyist Robert Livingston. Ball Aerospace & Technologies--a major manufacturer of NASA and Pentagon satellites--is represented by former Navy Secretary John Lehman, while missile-defense computer systems maker Hewlett-Packard is represented by George Keyworth, who is on its board of directors. And the Congressional Missile Defense Caucus and Osprey (or "tilt rotor") caucus are represented by Representative Curt Weldon and Senator Jon Kyl.

CSP was instrumental in developing the arguments against the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Largely ignored or derided at the time, a 1995 CSP memo co-written by Douglas Feith holding that the United States should withdraw from the ABM treaty has essentially become policy, as have other CSP reports opposing the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, the Chemical Weapons Convention and the International Criminal Court. But perhaps the most insightful window on the JINSA/CSP policy worldview comes in the form of a paper Perle and Feith collaborated on in 1996 with six others under the auspices of the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies. Essentially an advice letter to ascendant Israeli politician Benjamin Netanyahu, "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm" makes for insightful reading as a kind of US-Israeli neoconservative manifesto.
T he paper's first prescription was for an Israeli rightward economic shift, with tax cuts and a selloff of public lands and enterprises--moves that would also engender support from a "broad bipartisan spectrum of key pro-Israeli Congressional leaders." But beyond economics, the paper essentially reads like a blueprint for a mini-cold war in the Middle East, advocating the use of proxy armies for regime changes, destabilization and containment. Indeed, it even goes so far as to articulate a way to advance right-wing Zionism by melding it with missile-defense advocacy. "Mr. Netanyahu can highlight his desire to cooperate more closely with the United States on anti-missile defense in order to remove the threat of blackmail which even a weak and distant army can pose to either state," it reads. "Not only would such cooperation on missile defense counter a tangible physical threat to Israel's survival, but it would broaden Israel's base of support among many in the United States Congress who may know little about Israel, but care very much about missile defense"--something that has the added benefit of being "helpful in the effort to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem."

Recent months in Washington have shown just how influential the notions propagated by JINSA and CSP are--and how disturbingly zealous their advocates are. In early March Feith vainly attempted to get the CIA to keep former intelligence officers Milt Bearden and Frank Anderson from accepting an invitation to an Afghanistan-related meeting with Defense Secretary Rumsfeld at the Pentagon--not because of what the two might say about Afghanistan, according to sources familiar with the incident, but likely out of fear that Anderson, a veteran Arabist and former chief of the CIA's Near East division, would proffer his views on Iraq (opposed to invading) and Israel-Palestine (a fan of neither Arafat nor Sharon). In late June, after United Press International reported on a US Muslim civil liberties group's lambasting of Gaffney for his attacks on the American Muslim Council, Gaffney, according to a fellow traveler, "went berserk," launching a stream of invective about the UPI scribe who reported the item.

It's incidents like this, say knowledgeable observers and participants, that highlight an interesting dynamic among right-wing hawks at the moment. Though the general agenda put forth by JINSA and CSP continues to be reflected in councils of war, even some of the hawks (including Rumsfeld deputy Paul Wolfowitz) are growing increasingly leery of Israel's settlements policy and Gaffney's relentless support for it. Indeed, his personal stock in Bush Administration circles is low. "Gaffney has worn out his welcome by being an overbearing gadfly rather than a serious contributor to policy," says a senior Pentagon political official. Since earlier this year, White House political adviser Karl Rove has been casting about for someone to start a new, more mainstream defense group that would counter the influence of CSP. According to those who have communicated with Rove on the matter, his quiet efforts are in response to complaints from many conservative activists who feel let down by Gaffney, or feel he's too hard on President Bush. "A lot of us have taken [Gaffney] at face value over the years," one influential conservative says. "Yet we now know he's pushed for some of the most flawed missile defense and conventional systems. He considered Cuba a 'classic asymmetric threat' but not Al Qaeda. And since 9/11, he's been less concerned with the threat to America than to Israel."

Gaffney's operation has always been a small one, about $1 million annually--funded largely by a series of grants from the conservative Olin, Bradley and various Scaife foundations, as well as some defense contractor money--but he's recently been able to underwrite a TV and print ad campaign holding that the Palestinians should be Enemy Number One in the War on Terror, still obsessed with the destruction of Israel. It's here that one sees the influence not of defense contractor money but of far-right Zionist dollars, including some from Irving Moskowitz, the California bingo magnate. A donor to both CSP and JINSA (as well as a JINSA director), Moskowitz not only sends millions of dollars a year to far-right Israeli settler groups like Ateret Cohanim but he has also funded the construction of settlements, having bought land for development in key Arab areas around Jerusalem. Moskowitz ponied up the money that enabled the 1996 reopening of a tunnel under the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif, which resulted in seventy deaths due to rioting.

Also financing Gaffney's efforts is New York investment banker Lawrence Kadish. A valued and valuable patron of both the Republican National Committee and George W. Bush, Kadish helps underwrite CSP as well as Americans for Victory Over Terrorism, an offshoot of conservative activist William Bennett's Empower America, on which he and Gaffney serve as "senior advisers" in the service of identifying "external" and "internal" post-9/11 threats to America. (The "internal" threats, as articulated by AVOT, include former President Jimmy Carter, Harper's editor Lewis Lapham and Representative Maxine Waters.) Another of Gaffney's backers is Poju Zabludowicz, heir to a formidable diversified international empire that includes arms manufacturer Soltam--which once employed Perle--and benefactor of the recently established Britain Israel Communication and Research Centre, a London-based group that appears to equate reportage or commentary uncomplimentary to Zionism with anti-Semitism.

While a small but growing number of conservatives are voicing concerns about various aspects of foreign and defense policy--ranging from fear of overreach to lack of Congressional debate--the hawks seem to be ruling the roost. Beginning in October, hard-line American Enterprise Institute scholar Michael Rubin (to Rubin, outgoing UN human rights chief Mary Robinson is an abettor of terrorism) arrives at the Pentagon to take over the Defense Department's Iran-Iraq account, adding another voice to the Pentagon section of Ledeen's "total war" chorus. Colin Powell's State Department continues to take a beating from outside and inside--including Bolton and his special assistant David Wurmser. (An AEI scholar and far-right Zionist who's married to Meyrav Wurmser of the Middle East Media Research Institute--recently the subject of a critical investigation by London Guardian Middle East editor Brian Whitaker--Wurmser played a key role in crafting the "Arafat must go" policy that many career specialists see as a problematic sop to Ariel Sharon.)

As for Rumsfeld, based on comments made at a Pentagon "town hall" meeting on August 6, there seems to be little doubt as to whose comments are resonating most with him--and not just on missile defense and overseas adventures: After fielding a question about Israeli-Palestinian issues, he repeatedly referred to the "so-called occupied territories" and casually characterized the Israeli policy of building Jewish-only enclaves on Palestinian land as "mak[ing] some settlement in various parts of the so-called occupied area," with which Israel can do whatever it wants, as it has "won" all its wars with various Arab entities--essentially an echo of JINSA's stated position that "there is no Israeli occupation." Ominously, Rumsfeld's riff gave a ranking Administration official something of a chill: "I realized at that point," he said, "that on settlements--where there are cleavages on the right--Wolfowitz may be to the left of Rumsfeld."

An interview with Michael C. Ruppert
by Guerrilla News Network © 2000



Please introduce yourself.

I'm Mike Ruppert, and I'm the publisher of From The Wilderness newsletter and an ex-LAPD narc and general troublemaker fighting corrupting and evil influence around the world.

When you created the newsletter, what were you responding to and what were your intentions?

Well, in March of '98, it was about four months after I confronted CIA Director John Deutch at Locke High School on world television--he had come to Los Angeles to talk about allegations about CIA dealing drugs. I stood up on CNN and ABC Nightline and I said: "I am a former LAPD narcotics detective. I worked South Central and I can tell you, Director Deutch, that the Agency has dealt drugs in this country for a long time." And the room exploded, and what I saw at that time was there was a crying lack of knowledge in the body politic about how much evidence there really was about the criminal activities of the Central Intelligence Agency, specifically about dealing drugs. I said: "Wait a minute; I can pull out a little newsletter and say, 'If you look at this document, here's the proof for that.'" Because a lot of people were running around with the vague notion that maybe the CIA were bad guys and had done some things wrong, and they didn't know how much actual proof there was. So that's been the mission: to present the real proof that's irrefutable about what goes on.

 Let's talk about your experience on the beat and what you confronted as a citizen trying to do right in the streets--must be pretty wild as it is.

I haven't been a policeman now for a long time. I graduated from the LA Police Academy class of 11/73, hit the streets in January of '74 in South Central Los Angeles. It was a vastly different world then; there was no cocaine and we had six-shooters and straight batons and nobody had a radio that you carried around with you. But the world has changed enormously. I specialised in narcotics quickly, and heroin was the predominant drug on the street in my area; it was Mexican brown heroin in those days.

And what happened to me was that I met and fell in love with a woman who was a contract CIA agent, a career agent. Now, I come from a CIA family and they had tried to recruit me, so this was not unexpected to me, but I began to see that she was protecting drug shipments and that the Agency was actively involved in dealing drugs. This happened with her in Hawaii, Mexico, Texas and New Orleans, and I kept saying I'm a narc, that I'm not going to overlook drug shipments. That's what basically set me on the irreversible course of events that determined the rest of my life. That was 1977.

 You imagine someone in the CIA as thinking about protecting the country, or at least imagine the intelligence community as something that's ordered around national security. What do you think it is that triggers them to want to reconcile drug shipments in the country in line with that pursuit?

Well, they don't even have to reconcile it. That's what took so long to figure out, but what we teach now with From The Wilderness is that it wasn't just CIA dealing some drugs to fund covert operations. It is that drug money is an inherent part of the American economy. It has always been so, as it was with the British in the 1600s when they introduced opium into China to fund the triangular trade with the British East India Company.

The point about the drug trade is not that the CIA dealt a few drugs during the Contra years to fund the covert operation that Congress didn't want it to engage in. The CIA has dealt drugs for all 50 years of its existence--50 plus years, even before it was the CIA. And the point is that with 250 billion dollars a year in illegal drug money moved, laundered through the American economy, that money benefits Wall Street. That's the point of having the prohibitive drug trade, which the CIA effectively manages for the benefit of Wall Street.

Just before the Contra war, the annual cocaine consumption in this country was about 50 metric tons a year; let's say back in 1979. By 1985, it was 600 metric tons a year. We are still consuming 550 metric tons of cocaine a year in this country, and the money that's generated from that is used...let's say some drug dealer in Colombia calls General Motors and buys a thousand Suburbans--GM doesn't ask where it came from. Philip Morris is now being sued by 28 departments (the same thing as states) in Colombia for smuggling two billion dollars worth of Marlboro cigarettes into Colombia and getting paid for it with cocaine money! That money boosts Philip Morris's stock value on Wall Street; General Electric the same way...it's documented in the US Department of Justice.

So the purpose of the Agency being involved in the drug trade has been to generate illegal cash, fluid liquid capital, which gives those who can get their hands on it an unfair advantage in the marketplace.

 So when you hear the term "War on Drugs"...

Well, it's not a War on Drugs. It's a War on People. Consider this: Joseph McNamara, a former chief of San Jose from the Hoover Institute at Stanford University, published some really telling figures. In 1972, when Richard Nixon started the War on Drugs, the annual federal budget allocation was 110 million dollars a year for enforcement. In fiscal year 2000, 28 years later, the budget allocation was 17 billion dollars a year, and yet, in the year 2000, there are more drugs in this country, they are cheaper, and they are more potent than they were in 1972. That has to tell you that there's some other agenda going on here.

 Going back to the idea of China and the Opium War, it is described also as a war on the people of China, to bring them to a state of passivity where they couldn't actually be a force. Do you see in some way the drugs that come in satisfying a racist goal--with the crack laws especially in black inner city populations?

There are a number of ways to look at that. For the British, the introduction of opium into China was a means to an end. China was a homogeneous culture. When the British arrived there, they were these Caucasian heathens. The Chinese didn't want anything to do with them; they didn't want to give up their tea, they didn't want to give up their silk, and the British said "We can't have this". They went to India and grew the opium poppy in east India, in the foothills of the Himalayas, and smuggled it to China. And what they did over the course of a hundred years was they converted China from a homogeneous culture that was unified, into a society of warlords fighting for turf to see who had which drug-dealing regions.

If you look at what happened in South Central LA in the 1980s, the model is exactly the same; it didn't change. When I talk about narcotics, I come from several different angles. It's not just that I am a former narcotics investigator with the LAPD; I am also a recovering alcoholic who has sponsored men in recovery for 17 years. I've served on the board of directors of the National Council on Alcoholism. Alcohol is a drug. I have written more than 35 articles in the US Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence on treatment of addiction, recovery from addiction. The issue with drugs is this: people are going to get addicted no matter what you do, and a certain percentage of any population will always get addicted.

What the Agency has done (and I have written specifically on this; it's on my website), through institutions like the Rand Corporation and UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute and a number of academic projects which the CIA has funded, is they have deliberately engaged in pharmacological research to find out which drugs are most addictive. For example, in 1978-79, long before the cocaine epidemic hit here in the United States, research scientists from UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute, some of whom, like Louis Jolly West, who were very closely tied to the MK-ULTRA program, were doing research in South America where South American natives were smoking basuco, which has the same effect as crack cocaine. And the addiction was so strong that they were performing lobotomies and the people were still smoking the basuco or the paste in Colombia; and they knew that because NI and the Rand Corporation brought that data back.

So the CIA knew in 1980 exactly what the effects of crack were going to be when it hit the streets.

 Who benefits most from an addicted inner-city population?

It's not just who benefits most; it's how many people can benefit on how many different ends of the spectrum.

We published a story in my newsletter From The Wilderness in May of 1998 that was written by Catherine Austin Fitts, a former Assistant Secretary of Housing [and Urban Development, HUD]. She produced a map in 1996, August of 1996--that's the same month that the Gary Webb story broke in the San Jose Mercury News. It was a map that showed the pattern of single family foreclosures or single family mortgages--HUD-backed mortgages--in South Central Los Angeles. But when you looked at the map all of these HUD foreclosures, they were right in the heart of the area where the crack cocaine epidemic had occurred. And what was revealed by looking at the HUD data was that, during the 1980s, thousands of middle-class African American wage-earning families with mortgages lost their homes. Why? There were drive-by shootings, the whole neighbourhood deteriorated, crack people moved in next door, your children got shot and went to jail and you had to move out. The house on which you owed $100,000 just got appraised at $40,000 because nobody wanted to buy it and you had to flee; you couldn't sell it, so you walked on it. And what Catherine's research showed was that someone else came along and bought thousands of homes for 10 to 20 cents in the dollar in the years right after the crack cocaine epidemic.

So the economic model is the same one that's always been in play for the ruling elite: use the poor people's money to steal their own land. You get the poor people to buy the drugs, using their money; you take that money to bring in more drugs, which destroys their property value, and then you steal it back. And the same thing has happened not only in Los Angeles; it has happened in Washington Heights in New York. As a matter of fact, it's been documented by a fabulous researcher, Professor John Metzger at the University of Michigan, who is one of my subscribers; he has a doctorate of urban planning. It was discussed in the Kerner Commission Report in 1967 after the Detroit riots, where it became US government policy that no more than a quarter of the population of any major inner city should be minority. "Spatial deconcentration" they call it, which really sounds Nazi to me, but it's in the Kerner Commission Report.

So the plan is literally to kill, loot...let me make it real simple...it's "Kill the Indians, take the land, take the wealth". So it is something of a misnomer or a misconception to believe that all of the cocaine or all of the crack cocaine was only used by African Americans. There was almost as much crack being used by whites as there was by African Americans, certainly in terms of total consumption.

Whites probably consumed more cocaine than African Americans, but they consumed powder. And what we saw was a deliberate effort by the Agency or Agency-related organisations to make sure that the large quantities of the cocaine, and the high-quality cocaine, got into the inner cities like Los Angeles. It was protected. And that's what I saw with the LAPD. I saw the hands-on working relationship, the interface between local police departments and the CIA.

I was first recruited when I was a senior at UCLA. The Agency flew me to Washington and said: "Mike, we want you to become a CIA case officer. You've already interned for LAPD for three years, you interned for the chief, your family was CIA, your mother was NSA. We want you to go back to the LAPD, and being an LAPD cop will just be your cover."

Now the Agency has done that; we've documented it in New Orleans, in New York, in police departments all across the country. And I've seen the interface where the CIA will deal very quietly with local agencies to protect their drug operations. That's one of the reasons they have to do it; it weeds out competition.

 Now the people who go on from CIA training and become police officer covers, are they not inherently crooked? Is it for money or do they actually believe there's a benefit here?

Well, we were talking earlier before about Lenny Horowitz and his great book, Emerging Viruses. He has a quote in the front of that book that's one of my favourite quotes of all time; it's from Alexander Solzhenitsyn. And Solzhenitsyn says that men, in order to do evil, must first believe that what they are doing is good, otherwise they can't do it.

Now, not everybody in a local police department who connects with the CIA is a case officer. The Agency will use contractors. They'll approach guys who have military specialties and they'll hire them on the side. There are some like LAPD Chief Daryl Gates, who I believe was a case officer his whole life--and we can go there later if you want to. Others are just contract employees, but they brainwash themselves. And it's easy to believe--it's one of the worst human vices of all--that if you're making all this money and you have power, then you're doing it for a good cause. So there's an aspect of delusion about it, but it is one that becomes extremely vicious when you try to bring it out of denial.

 The guy who goes and buys the house at the cheap rate, how is he really connected to the CIA who are bringing in drugs from Nicaragua? Some people would say that's a simplified version of a conspiracy theory. How would you respond to those people?

This is all documentable, this is provable, this is not speculation. We can trace this money very quickly; it's very easy to do. That's one of the reasons we've been so dangerous at From The Wilderness, because this is not speculation. Did the guy who was operating the roundhouse that turned around the train that was rolling to Auschwitz know what was going on in the shower room? I'm not making that argument, but it was all part of the system that produced the same net result. And what you find repeatedly--one of the things that we'll be seeing more of, I think, in From The Wilderness and certainly I've seen excellent research on this--is that one of the biggest investors in HUD multi-family units and HUD mortgages is Harvard University. It is a huge corporation that has a long list of ties to organised crime. Well, you take major firms like Harvard or related investment firms that also turn out to be huge campaign contributors, and they find out that there are 200 houses on the market for 20 cents in the dollar and they don't ask how it got that way; they just follow the money.

I was at the Shadow Convention where I interviewed a number of very famous people--Jesse Jackson, John Conyers, Maxine Waters, Arianna Huffington, Scott Harshbarger of Common Cause, a great many very important American people. I talked to them about the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in July of 2000 confirming that there was evidence that CIA was ordering drug dealing by a Contra leader, Reynato Peña. And it was funny, because I got all these political answers.

But one guy I talked to was a guy named Rex Nutting, who was the bureau chief of CBS Market Watch--he is the head guy for CBS for the stock market. And we're sitting back in the room--I'm waiting for Huffington to get free--and I'm talking to this guy about the fact that Richard Grasso, the Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, last July went to Colombia and cold-called on the FARC guerrillas and asked them to invest their drug money in Wall Street. And Rex Nutting says: "Well, of course they always go where the money is. It's obvious."

The drug money is always going through Wall Street. Wall Street smells money and doesn't care where the money comes from; they'll go for the drug money.

And we jokingly laughed that the National Security Act that created the CIA in '47 was written by a guy called Clark Clifford, who was a Wall Street banker and lawyer. He's the guy that brought us BCCI. The job of writing the outline for CIA, the design for the Agency, was given to Clark Clifford by John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles--both law partners in the Wall Street law firm of Sullivan and Cromwell. In '69 after Nixon came in, the Chairman of SEC [Securities and Exchange Commission] was William Casey--the same guy who was Ronald Reagan's Director of Central Intelligence. And the current Vice President in charge of enforcement for the New York Stock Exchange, Dave Dougherty, is a retired CIA General Counsel. The CIA is Wall Street, and vice versa. When you understand that, and that money is the primary objective, everything else just falls into place.

What is the character of our governing body that's taken on this apparatus? What times do we live in?

Well, this is the Roman Empire. This is the Roman Empire before the fall. There is no question. I have written extensively in From The Wilderness and we've been right...we talk about a thing called a map. Have you ever had the experience where you're reading a map--you're trying to go to a party or some place you've never been before--and you follow this map and you read it, and you see that according to the map you're supposed to be at 34th and Main, and you look up at the street sign and it says 34th and Main? You feel good.

But if you look up at the street sign and it says Fifth and Broadway, you get this real sinking feeling inside. Everybody, most of the world, is operating from a bad map. From The Wilderness has a good map because we've been able to predict what's going to happen; we can explain it and make sense out of it.

The map that we're following--and this is where I agree wholeheartedly with Le Monde in Paris, a fabulous publication that's about to give us a pretty decent endorsement in September [2000], this month--is that organised crime is probably the lubricating force for the entire world economy right now. There's a trillion dollars a year in organised crime money. That trillion dollars a year is liquid, and if you think of money--criminal money, drug money--as water, which is thin, it can flow very quickly from point A to point B. And in the world markets, where you apply money is where you control business. You control markets. You control banks. You control interest rates. Drug money flows fastest. Money that is not criminal money has to go through regulations and banking systems. It has to go through taxations. It's tracked. The lawyers follow it. That money moves like molasses.

So those who have access to the cheapest capital always win. That's why if you don't play with drug money in the world economy today, you can't play at all. That's why, as we have documented, drug money was going directly into Al Gore's presidential campaign. Why? Because the Republicans, going as far back as Reagan, were using drug money, and that's how they put Reagan into office--with Bill Casey. If you don't play in that mode, you can't play at all. But the analogy I use is that it's like a snake eating its own tail: it's got to stop sooner or later.

We were faced with a huge economic lapse in 1997 when the Asian economies collapsed and the whole world held its breath, waiting for the other shoe to drop in the American markets. Well, it didn't drop. But you know why it didn't drop? Because we went to war in Kosovo. We blew up several hundred billion dollars worth of bridges, refineries and factories. The KLA controls 77 per cent of the heroin that's entering into Western Europe. We loosened up that money. American companies got all these new contracts to rebuild the refineries, the bridges, and the economy was saved.

Now we're going to war in Colombia--we have already taken combat casualties--but it's not sustainable because Colombia is and will become another Vietnam. And South America is already saying "We're not going there".

So I think we're on the brink of some really serious economic upheavals in the US economy that are essential, because the system cannot last. The way I see it, this is this very much like Rome. And I see some big changes coming very soon.

 Obviously you deploy information in the desire that people might become conscious of it and make a change. What do you think when the average American says, "Why is this not in the major media and, if it's true, then it's gotta stop"? What do you say?

As far as the major media go, it's real simple. First of all, if you look at what just happened with AOL and Time Warner who own CNN. We have proven in From The Wilderness that CNN flat lost a lawsuit over the use of sarin gas during Vietnam. The Tailwind suits were settled and the former producer, April Oliver, just bought a six-bedroom house. I mean, CNN cannot afford to tell the truth, because what happened when they tried to tell the truth is that Henry Kissinger and Colin Powell picked up the phone and scared Ted Turner to death by threatening his stock value on Wall Street.

It's very interesting to note that one of the companies I track as far as laundering drug monies go--General Electric--happens to own NBC. Now, everybody knows that GE brings good things to life; they make DVDs, VCRs, television sets, telephones. When drug money in South America says they'd like to buy 100 million dollars worth of TVs and DVDs so that someone laundering drug money in Colombia can open a chain of appliance stores and make that money legal, GE asks absolutely no questions about where that money is coming from. As a matter of fact, there are no requirements for Wall Street to report drug money being invested.

If you and I go to a bank and we take in $10,001 in cash, the bank has to fill out a currency transaction report because you might be laundering money. GE can accept a check for 100 million dollars from the biggest drug lord in the world, and there is no requirement in the world that GE report that to anybody. But with a thing called the "price-to-earnings ratio" on their shares, a hundred million dollars in net profit for GE in South America--which was very easily done last year--equates to, at a price-to-earnings ratio of thirty to one, an increase in GE's stock value of three billion dollars.

So we're living in a hugely inflated bubble, and not one of the major media outlets in this country--all of which are publicly traded corporations afraid of takeover, trying to maximise profits--can afford to tell the truth. That's why we see these great opportunities for little organisations like From The Wilderness, and you guys, and everybody else that's coming up now--because what we're peddling is the truth, and what we find is that the truth sells!

 Very well said. So now the second part of the question is this: what do you think the reaction of the American people will be when a critical mass of people actually digests this information in a rational way?

Denial is not a river in Egypt! There's gonna be a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth. There are several ways that I describe this. America is hopelessly addicted to its consumerism and blinded by the fact that the good things that we enjoy in our lives are at the price of slave labour in Indonesia, East Timor and all over the world. But we're blind to that--the same way that a drunk on a barstool is blind to the fact that he's drunk. Alcoholics don't stop because they don't know when to stop, they don't know how. One is too many and ten thousand not enough.

There are two models that I use to describe what happens in the American culture. One of them is we're like a family in which the father is molesting the youngest daughter, and everybody in the family conspires in a conspiracy of silence to scapegoat the youngest daughter because they're afraid of what's going to happen to the family if they speak out or, worse yet, they think "Oh my God, he's going to come after me". America very much works that way.

But the other way that I look at it is that we have to hit a bottom. Something is going to have to break. Something's gonna have to fall out--something's gonna have to destabilise the equilibrium here before people will even begin to look at what's going on. Yes, we've made some enormous progress over the last five years because there's a real hunger for good information, but as far as reaching the vast majority of the American people goes, something's gonna have to knock 'em off their barstool!

 Cool. How would you characterise our "democracy", the two-party system? Is there any truth to the fact that we elect our officials?

No. It's a joke. There are two ends of the same party. There are two factions. There's what I like to call a Clinton faction--even though he is leaving office--and a Bush faction. But they are like the Genoveses and the Gambinos. If I am going to be the shopkeeper who is going to be oppressed, it doesn't make any difference to me whether there's a Gambino or a Genovese sticking a gun in my face and taking the money out of my pocket. We rationalise this by saying, "Well, they keep the economy good, etc., etc." That's the blind spot.

But no one in the American political system is allowed to rise to the level where they can seriously compete for the White House unless they are already compromised. Period. I know; I've been there. I was the press spokesman for the Perot presidential campaign in Los Angeles County in 1992. I had known Ross Perot before--we had spoken on issues of the POWs, the CIA and drugs--and what I found out is that I have yet to meet a millionaire who has my best interests at heart. And what I saw done was Ross had no intention of winning; it was all fixed even as far back as '92. I don't think we've had a fair election in this country since John Kennedy, even if that was fair, so...

 Can you explain some of the political adventures or misadventures that brought the CIA to the public eye around drug dealing?

Well, if you go back historically, the Agency has been real active in Central America since the Second World War. I mean, the Agency was down there, even before it was CIA, with United Fruit and all the major landowners in Central America. In 1979, Anastasio Samosa, the dictator of Nicaragua, was overthrown by the Sandino movement--the Sandinistas. They were a "Marxist" movement, and Ronald Reagan mobilised the country to stave off this alleged threat of communist imperialism on America's doorstep. It was a whole lot of rubric and Congress didn't really want to get involved in it deeply. Congress passed some amendments to the Military Appropriations Act. They were known as the Boland Amendments, and were passed first I think in 1981 and again in 1984; they were Boland 1 and 2, which limited direct military aid to the Contras, the people fighting the Sandinistas.

And so the CIA and Ronald Reagan and Bill Casey and George Bush (Vice President George Bush) were running the whole operation; we know that now. They circumvented the will of Congress and there was this explosion of drug trafficking all throughout Central America, coordinated by the CIA. And we now have the CIA's own documents, and I can show you one later. It's the CIA's Volume 2 of their own Inspector-General's Report from 1998 where, in its own words, the Agency admits that of the 58 known Contra groups, 58 were involved with drugs. And that the Agency dealt with them; it protected six traffickers, kept them out of jail. One guy moving four tons of cocaine a month was using a bank account opened by White House staffer Oliver North. Other CIA assets were caught moving 200 kilos at a time--200 kilos is not personal use--and he was saying, "Well, I can't tell you what I'm doing because I'm doing it for the National Security Council"--that's the White House organ that oversees the Central Intelligence Agency. So we saw this huge explosion.

The point I make in my lectures is that in the mid- to late '70s, we in America--those of us who are old enough to remember--dealt with cartels but we didn't deal with drug cartels, we dealt with oil cartels. We had an oil crisis and it almost crippled the American economy. We had been subsidised by very cheap oil that we acquired by, in a sense, exploiting other countries. Well, then we had cartels of cocaine and we went from 40 to 50 metric tons a year to 600 metric tons a year. And that money was moved through Wall Street and became, in effect, the capital that replaced oil in the US economy.

 How do you characterise the true governance in the world, and is this national or international?

Well, I think some of this is really traceable. Some people talk about something called the Illuminati. I've never met any Illuminati. When people start to talk to me about the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderbergers--those are all readily identifiable groups of people who are the wealthiest of the wealthy in the world. And we find the Rothschilds and there are groups of wealth in the world that are so powerful that political movements don't ever touch them. And yes, they are in effect a guiding unseen hand. I have yet to see one individual person--I don't think there's a Mr Big somewhere, like in the Wizard of Oz, pulling levers--that's responsible for all the evil. I've never yet found one person who, if they were killed, would take away all the evil.

 I want to talk about Clinton for a bit because it's incredible that most people don't even understand Mena. Is he not the ultimate millennial politician, and can you just tell us a little about who he really is?

Bill Clinton... Well, first of all, he was up to his eyeballs in CIA cocaine in Mena, Arkansas. Again, it's provable; the Wall Street Journal covered it. The New York Times covered the aspects of that. Gary Webb in his fabulous book, Dark Alliance, produced documents showing that CIA contracts at the Mena airport were negotiated by the Rose Law Firm--Hillary's law firm. There is no question that Bill came up in that milieu. My democratic drug money piece also covered this, showing that the CIA has been under Clinton control, funnelling money into the Democratic Party.

Bill Clinton is a guy who came up with this driving ambition to become President. He would do anything to be President. And he did do anything to become President. He is a lean, mean, vicious, ruthless streetfighter. Yes, he came from humble beginnings; his mother was a nurse, there was drinking in the background, his father died in a car crash. Some people have speculated that his real father might be Winthrop Rockefeller--who knows? But he is not a guy who came up in the fourth-generation in-bred George W. Bush style, you know, who has never had to fight a fair fight in his life. And my personal belief is that one on one, or politically even, the Clinton faction would kick the Bush faction every time--except the Bush faction just has lots more money!

Clinton played the games he had to play. I firmly believe that Bill Clinton was connected to the CIA as far back as when he was at Oxford. I believe his trip to Moscow was not to protest the war. I believe it was to spy on Americans. He was making his bones. And I've documented this very completely, about how Bill Clinton blackmailed his way out of the impeachment with the proof in the CIA investigations that Reagan and Bush had been dealing cocaine and ordering it, that Bush was involved in it first-hand; and that's where we got it--volume two of the report.

The big side-story of this is that the Gary Webb story was broken in August '96. We were promised all these investigations. [Democrat Congresswoman] Maxine Waters jumped in and was running all around the country screaming about CIA and cocaine. In March of 1998, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan, did a walking tour of South Central and Maxine received a 300-million-dollar empowerment grant. Then, in May, Maxine Waters received a "smoking gun" letter from Reagan Attorney-General William French Smith to Bill Casey, where it said the CIA no longer has to report drug trafficking by its agents! It's in writing!

Then, in October of '98, CIA Inspector-General Frederick Hitz released a report...well, actually, he didn't release it; he had finished a report as far back as May or June of '98 and it was classified as Top Secret; and it was left to the CIA Director George Tenet to declassify it for public consumption. Well, George Tenet works for Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton appoints the head of the CIA. Head of the CIA takes Clinton's orders. That report--that CIA report that absolutely destroys George Bush--is a public document; you can access it off my website copvcia.com, and I have these extracts that I sell. It was released to the public on October 8, 1998, one hour after Henry Hyde's committee on the judiciary voted to start the impeachment of Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton picked up the phone and said: "They're gonna impeach me? George Tenet, CIA, release the report that sinks George Bush; we'll see how far they want to go." Click. Maxine Waters stops screaming about CIA and drugs, and she starts supporting Bill Clinton.

Now the interesting thing that my investigations have revealed is that one of the people who helped negotiate the smoking-gun memorandum was a guy on the Attorney-General's staff named Ken Starr. That's the guy who was prosecuting Clinton! Clinton was blackmailing the Republicans. Both sides played the same game, and Clinton basically says: "You wanna take me down? I'll bring the whole government down!"

I had six hits on my website on February 11, 1999, when the Senate was doing the trial of Bill Clinton. They were reading my stories on the impeachment, and that's when the whole story caved in.

 What would you say to young people now? Do we have to be guerrillas? Once we get what you're saying, what should we do?

Follow the money. Understand how money works. If you have a sense in some part of your body, some part of your soul, that something's not right, you're probably right. Something isn't right. I grew up in the '50s and '60s and, you know, one of the things was to question authority. Question authority. Do not accept the mind control that's being fed to you; just don't do it!

 With Colombia, explain how that war is being constructed and how it is being played out in the press?

Let's work on the structure of the war in Colombia first. I think that's far more important to understand why Colombia is like Vietnam. There are so many similarities between Colombia and Vietnam. First of all, Colombia will be a regional conflict like Vietnam was. The Vietnam War was not just Vietnam; it was North Vietnam, South Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Guam, China, the whole surrounding region. And the Colombian conflict will be Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Panama, maybe even Mexico, Puerto Rico certainly. We've admitted that we are going to stage for invasion or for intervention in Puerto Rico when we go in. Marines are now training and they've been landing on Colombian beaches. You haven't been hearing that.

One of the reasons why Colombia is like Vietnam is because we already have about 300 Special Forces Green Beret advisers on the ground, training Colombian troops, but we have maybe 500 to 1,000 former--and I use that term real loosely--CIA Special Forces personnel who have supposedly retired from the military and are now working for two corporations: Dyncorp and MPRI. And they're in Colombia as "civilian advisers" but they're going out on combat missions. They're flying airplanes, they're shooting, they're being shot. We've had Army personnel shot down already. About a year ago we had an Army plane shot down by a SAM [surface-to-air missile].

We have major investment corporations like Nicholas Brady's Darby Investments. Nicholas Brady was George Bush's Secretary of the Treasury. He has just opened a billion-dollar investment partnership with a group called Corfinsura, based in Medellín, Colombia, to build roads and dams. And it's like what we saw in Vietnam with major companies like Brown & Root going in to build Cam Ranh Bay, making billions of dollars in profit.

So we're going in to suck out. You see, for twenty or thirty years now, the drug money has been building up in Colombia. There's trillions of dollars in equity that's accumulated and it's become a threat to Wall Street's control, so we have to go down and blow the country up to take the money back to make sure it doesn't become powerful. Venezuela is not going along with this, like Cambodia would not go along with the Vietnam War and Laos wouldn't either. President Hugo Chavez is denying overflight to American planes, so we're gonna sabotage the Venezuelan economy! This is going to suck us into a hemispheric conflict just like Vietnam.

This is the difference. With Vietnam, we were told we were going in to fight the evil Communists. Well, we don't have any more Communist bogeymen. I mean, China is there but it's not really a military threat unless you're on the far right and totally needing lithium. But what we see is that we're being told that we're going to fight the evil drug lords. Well, the American Press even now is having trouble selling that to the American people. And even now, in the first or second week in September of 2000, we're starting to have body counts turn up in the news. It's just like Vietnam, but the Press is having a real hard time dealing with it. This is the sign of the end of the road for this system. It's starting to crumble right now.

But they are reporting this like Vietnam. And I will never forget the coverage from Vietnam exactly the way it played out, because these were my high school classmates that were dying. And it's sounding very similar right now.

 Last question. What is the power of money? At the end of the day, drugs means money. Talk a bit about that and what it does to policemen, or to law and order?

Well, I think it's the whole system. Most rank-and-file policemen on the street are not what I would call innovative free-thinkers. They aren't the kind of guys who would see an opportunity to go illegal and just kind of do that on their own initiative. They have to see or sense that it's going on in a climate that allows them to get away with it. So we see the corruption working throughout society. When drug money is going directly into Wall Street--well, why not, you know, if you're a cop...

yup, that is the good Ruppert. After the CIA executed Webb, Ruppert turned on Indira Singh and made peak oil his number one subject (which fits nicely with the RockefellerFoundation plans for 2012). Watch Collapse to see the difference. He is all doom and gloom and misinfo. With the two videos I posted, he is a different person. And I do not believe he is a coward, I believe he did all he felt he could and unless we walk miles in his shoes, we hardly can judge (although if you look at past comments by me concerning him you will find I often do not practice what I preach).

John P Wheeler III: Former Special Asst to Air Force Sec, Member of Council on Foreign Relations, Consultant to Mitre Corporation Found Dumped in Landfill

What was John P Wheeler III doing at the Mitre Corporation? And why was he found dead New Year’s Eve at the Cherry Island Landfill?
A four page bio on John P Wheeler III is currently available at Second Line of Defense:
Via Delaware Online and Cryptogon. See also James Fallows’ piece at The Atlantic.
Newark police have identified the body discovered on New Year’s Eve at the Cherry Island Landfill as 66-year-old John P. Wheeler of New Castle.
Wheeler, who lived part time in Old New Castle, worked as a defense consultant and had a long and decorated military career that involved working in the Reagan and George W. Bush administrations.
Wheeler also served as chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which built the wall in Washington, D.C.
His death has been ruled a homicide.
Newark police have had a crime scene unit at Wheeler’s home at 108 West Third St. in Old New Castle all day today, with crime-scene tape roping off the prominent three-story brick home with black shutters.
Friends and neighbors were shocked to learn Wheeler had been murdered.
“This is just not the kind of guy who gets murdered,” said Bayard Marin, a Wilmington attorney who represented Wheeler. “This is not the kind of guy you find in a landfill.”
Wheeler worked in Washington, D.C. and investigators have determined he was on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington on Tuesday, said Newark police Lt. Mark Farrall.
“The last place they can put him is getting off the Amtrak train in Wilmington,” Farrall said.
The MITRE Corporation is described on its website as a ”trusted adviser to the U.S. military, MITRE’s Defense International Operations program also develops command and control and engineering solutions for NATO members and other U.S. allies.” It is primarily located in McLean, VA, a not-for-profit corporation tasked to US intelligence and other federal agencies, probably one of the creepiest agencies you've never heard of.

BIOGRAPHY OF JOHN WHEELER
John Wheeler is a defense consultant. He served as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment. His mission was to carry out tasks and monitor programs in support of goals as directed, and support the Air Force Secretariat with data gathering, team organization, liaison, analysis and/or options for action. Principal tasks included standing up Cyberspace Forces and placing Precision Strike technology and Real Time Streaming Video targeting links into the hands of groundfighters in combat.
Mr. Wheeler graduated from West Point in 1966, serving as a staff officer in Vietnam, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Joint Staff before leaving active service in 1971. While on active duty, he authored the first Biological and Chemical Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual and the analysis supporting the President’s decision that the U.S. will not use biologicals. He was also on the Red Integrated Strategic Operational Plan Team to test the Single Integrated Operational Plan. His career combines federal service and starting up, growing and turning around companies and charities. He was Secretary, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on the team that worked major insider trader investigations, and consultant to the acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics regarding tankers and other issues.
For President Reagan, he created the Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program, linking successful veterans with veterans needing jobs. For President G.H.W. Bush, he created the Earth Conservation Corps for at-risk youth.
He was Chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, which built the Wall, and first Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, which led the 40 percent reduction in drunk driving casualties as of 2005.
He has also served as Special Counsel to the Chairman and CEO for the turnaround of Macy’s, and he helped launch charities including the Jed Foundation to prevent college suicides, Support Our Aging Religious, and the Deafness Research Foundation’s National Campaign for Hearing Health to end deafness with cochlear implants for children.

Meet the MITRE Corporation: McLean, Virginia's Dr. Strangeloves

Move over Herman Kahn. Forget the "missile gap." The latest "crisis" facing U.S. "warfighters" in their noble quest to defend the "homeland" and dominate the "battlespace" is... the sleep gap!

That's right. According to a newly disclosed report by The MITRE Corporation's defense science advisory panel know as JASON, the United States must continue investigating the potential by America's adversaries "to exploit advances in Human Performance Modification, and thus create a threat to national security," Secrecy News reveals.



According to Steven Aftergood,


Their report examined "the present state of the art in pharmaceutical intervention in cognition and in brain-computer interfaces, and considered how possible future developments might proceed and be used by adversaries."

Among their findings was the under-appreciated significance of sleep and the possibility of a "sleep gap" (a term not used in the report).

"The most immediate human performance factor in military effectiveness is degradation of performance under stressful conditions, particularly sleep deprivation." ("JASON Warns of Threat from Sleeping Enemies," Secrecy News, June 5, 2008)

Though its hard to take Strangelovian madness such as this seriously, the investigation of military applications of "Human Performance Modification" is no laughing matter. Undoubtedly, the Office of Defense Research and Engineering, the Pentagon agency that commissioned the study, aren't laughing either.

When JASON researchers conclude, "If an opposing force had a significant sleep advantage, this would pose a serious threat," its difficult not to crack a smile. That is, until one considers that the The MITRE Corporation, a McClean, Virginia-based "not-for-profit corporation," was formed in 1958 when "several hundred employees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Lincoln Laboratories came to MITRE to create new technology for the Department of Defense--specifically the Semi-Automated Ground Environment, which used brand new digital computers."

Currently fronting 6,700 scientists and "support specialists," MITRE "customers" include the Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Defense Information Systems Agency, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Missile Defense Command, Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Military Intelligence Agencies, as well as "other members" of the "National Security Community."

Additionally, MITRE's "Homeland Security customers" include the full panoply of agencies under the (dark) wing of the Department of Homeland Security: the Directorate for Science & Technology, the Directorate for National Protection & Programs, Office of Intelligence and Analysis, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs & Border Protection (Secure Border Initiative) and U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE).

According to researcher Nick Turse in his book The Complex, "MITRE brought in a cool $275,384,277" in research, development, test and evaluation money from the Pentagon in 2005. All in all, MITRE is one of the spookiest corporations you've never heard of.

As a leading provider of technical researchers for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, MITRE behavioral scientists are on the "cutting edge" of what Pentagon war criminals have euphemistically designated an "Enhanced Human Performance Project." Among the more frightening aspects of this venture, DARPA claims they will "exploit the life sciences to make the individual warfighter stronger, more alert, more endurant, and better able to heal."



In other words, a warfighting "Terminator" in the service of corporate power. These developments are further along than you might think. As Nick Turse revealed:


Right now, researchers are already growing insects with electronics inside them. They're creating cyborg moths and flying beetles that can be remotely controlled. One day, the U.S. military may field squadrons of winged insect/machine hybrids with on-board audio, video or chemical sensors. These cyborg insects could conduct surveillance and reconnaissance missions on distant battlefields, in far-off caves, or maybe even in cities closer to home, and transmit detailed data back to their handlers at U.S. military bases.

Today, many people fear U.S. government surveillance of email and cell phone communications. With this program, the Pentagon aims to exponentially increase the paranoia. Imagine a world in which any insect fluttering past your window may be a remote-controlled spy, packed with surveillance equipment. Even more frightening is the prospect that such creatures could be weaponized, and the possibility, according to one scientist intimately familiar with the project, that these cyborg insects might be armed with "bio weapons." ("Weaponizing the Pentagon's Cyborg Insects," TomDispatch, March 30, 2008)

Called HI-MEMS, Turse reports that DARPA aims to transform "insects into unmanned air-vehicles." HI-MEMS program manager Armit Lal, an associate professor on leave from Cornell University described the research thusly at DARPA's annual symposium, DARPATech:


"[T]he HI-MEMS program seeks to grow MEMS and electronics inside the insect pupae. The new tissue forms around the insertions, making the bio-electronic interface long-lasting and reliable." In other words, micro-electronics are inserted at the pupal stage of metamorphosis so that they can be integrated into the insects' bodies as they develop, creating living robots that can be remotely controlled after the insect emerges from its cocoon.

And, as with all military research aiming to weaponize all aspects of the natural world, MITRE scientists and their DARPA "customers" cloak their devilish tinkering as purely "defensive" moves designed to impede an unseen, but nevertheless cunning and ruthless "adversary."

Thus we read in JASON's bizarre executive summary:


1. Maintain a strong internal research activity, with concomitant personnel expertise, because this is crucial for evaluation of potential threats based on the activity of adversaries in human performance modification.

2. Monitor enemy activities in sleep research, and maintain close understanding of open source sleep research. Use in-house military research on the safety and effectiveness of newly developing drugs for ameliorating the effects of sleep deprivation, such as ampakines, as a baseline for evaluating potential activities of adversaries.

3. Develop a corps of trained analysts capable of evaluating technical developments in human performance modification. These analysts should be trained in assessing the meaning of statistical metrics, and also in assessing the experimental methods and results of the original scientific literature on which claims are based. (E. Williams, et.al.,Human Performance, JASON, The MITRE Corporation, March 2008, JSR-07-625)

And what conclusion can we infer from JASON's recommendation that the U.S. develop a "technical knowledge base" in "behavior modification"?


The US military will certainly test whether, and to what extent, the new lessons of neuroscience can be used in military training, and it is reasonable to expect that adversaries will do so as well. We do not expect the development of super-soldiers as a result of improved training, although enhanced military capability can certainly be expected. However, unexpected adversarial behavior could result if training included behavior modification (e.g., for increased aggressiveness or decreased empathy). Thus one strong recommendation of this study is that the US should develop a technical knowledge base concerning scientifically based training tools, especially as applied in behavior modification. This knowledge base should be combined with information-gathering and analysis concerning the training techniques (both civilian and military) in adversaries' cultures.

Simply put, psychoanalysis describe such notions as projection: the process whereby what is inside is misunderstood, consciously or otherwise, as originating outside the self or body politic. In its most malignant, pathological form--as is in the self-interested mendacities of corporate and political elites--projected attitudes seriously distort the object on whom they are projected, as in the branding of x, y, or z as a "new Hitler," as a defense mechanism to mask one's own aggression.


Interestingly enough, the Nazi's genocidal project to eradicate the Jewish people was thusly theorized as a "defense" of Germanic culture against a "Jewish-Bolshevik conspiracy." So it is today, with JASON's obsession with the "training techniques" in "adversaries' cultures" allegedly "training for increased aggressiveness or decreased empathy." What is this if not a descriptive catalogue of the horrors visited on the Iraqi people by an "imperialism gone wild"?

As the history of the U.S. Government's earlier experiments in "behavior modification" demonstrate, building on the "skill-sets" acquired from vanquished Nazi and Japanese war criminals, The MITRE Corporation and their DARPA "customers" are following along the path blazed decades earlier by the CIA and the Pentagon.

Sporting esoteric names and "above top secret" pedigrees, projects such as ARTICHOKE, MKULTRA, MKDELTA and MKNAOMI embodied the 1950s "cutting edge" zeitgeist of science, academia, military heavy-lifting, covert operations and expanding "business horizons." While America's Cold War vision was guided by anticommunist paranoia, consumerism and its accompanying cult of the "normal," as well as the "can-do" optimism of "winnable" nuclear war, its ideological hubris arose in the political-economic context of an American superpower that had annihilated its German and Japanese capitalist rivals.

As America's permanent war and surveillance society morphs into the dystopian phantasmagoria of Philip K. Dick's The Minority Report, technological optimism--as is inevitable in kleptocracies such as the United States--is harnessed and reified by bio-behavioral modification engineers, sociopaths in lab coats, who populate outfits such as The MITRE Corporation like so many poisonous intellectual mushrooms.

Imagining monstrous hybrids fueled by perverse fantasies of swarming cyborg-insects that "dominate the battlespace" or morals-free imperialist "Terminators" jacked-up by "pharmaceutical enhancements" and "invasive brain-computer interfaces," the JASONs, like their Hollywood namesake--the masked killing machine who ran amok in a score of popular slasher films--are, in the end, not harbingers of a bright, shining globalized future but rather, its terminal end point: the corporatist Borg hive where resistance is futile.

John P. Wheeler III: The 'neighbors' twist

U.S. Army veteran, MADD supporter, a regular at the Pentagon, former Securities and Exchange Commission insider...the list goes on and one about the esteemed--now deceased--John P, Wheeler III. But as much as is known about the man who got things done; no one knows who killed him and left his body in a dumpster in Newark after Christmas.

His last known communication is with fellow decades old friend John Fallows, who appears to have the most information about John P. Wheeler, except maybe his wife, who was traveling at the time of his disappearance.

Fallows, a journalist at the Atlantic Magazine takes offense to those who would label his friend a mere Bush aide, and undoubtedly the numerous entities like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and those behind the effort for the building of the Vietnam Veteran Memorial would do the same, as John P. Wheeler III was a man of many interests, talents and passions too numerous to put under one heading or one president.

John Wheeler's neighbors--there is actually only one may who play prominently into this story--but all shed more light on the murder of the man relegated at the end of his death to a dumpster.

One, Jeanne Thomas, a neighbor around the corner from Wheeler's home, knew him because he rented her storage space in his old barn behind his home.

"He was wonderful. We're just shocked. He was very humble," the Courier Post reported.

Wheeler's second neighbor, an elderly man of 85 named Robert Meadus described the death of John Wheeler as "exceedingly wierd. WTOP FM Radio also reported Meadus saying, "The more you think about it, the more implausable it becomes...It's a Perry Mason thing for sure."

John Wheeler's third neighbor--actually a husband and wife, Frank and Reginia Marini--got their own unwelcome surprise this week: a smoke bomb thrown into their home on Tuesday.

But it is Frank and Reginia Marini who are garnering the most attention, as John Wheeler and his wife Katherine Klyce sued the Marini's in 2009 due to their attempt to build a house that, inevitably, would block the Wheelers' view of the Delaware River from their own home.

Firefighters are investigating the smoke bomb, but no damage has been reported, and there is not evidence at this time that the incident bears on the Wheeler murder.

In addition the Marini's home across from the Wheeler's is still not complete.

Wheeler's last neighbor, and the one who has the most to share about the week surrounding his death, is Ron Roark.

John's neighbor Ron heard loud noise emminating from John's television during Christmas week, and it wasn't the usual occassional program, as Roark says: it was so loud as to be disturbing...and it was continuous for days.

Profile part 3


Delaware law enforcement aren't saying how John P. Wheeler III died, but they are denying his home was the crime scene. However, according to WTOP FM Radio, two wooden chairs in the Wheeler's kitchen had yellow crime scene tape stretched across them--and several wooden floorboards near the two chairs were missing.

This could indicate that John P. Wheeler took that Amtrak train and actually made it home. He might also have had an unexpected guest who felt noise was called for as he searched for something buried in the kitchen--and left John Wheeler tied to a chair.

Police have not indicated how John Wheeler died, thus it is not know if torture was part of that death. But unusually loud television noise is often used to mask the sounds of activity others are not meant to hear in the criminal world, and John P. Wheeler did die by foul play.

John P. Wheeler III
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_P._Wheeler_III


Born   December 14, 1944
Died   December 2010
Body discovered   Cherry Island Landfill, Wilmington, Delaware
Nationality   United States


John "Jack" P. Wheeler III (December 14, 1944 – between December 28 and 31, 2010) was a former chairman of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, former senior planner for Amtrak (1971-1972), former chief executive and CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, consultant to the Mitre Corporation (2009-death), member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and a presidential aide to the Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush administrations.[1][2]

Wheeler wrote the memoir Touched With Fire: The Future of the Vietnam Generation, a book about the post-war experiences of Vietnam soldiers and anti-war protesters. He was the main character in The Long Gray Line by Rick Atkinson, which chronicled the experiences of the West Point class of 1966.

A leading voice for veterans, served in Vietnam, He was chair of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund. The organization that constructed the nation's official war memorial in Washington, D.C. He also called for recognition of wounded veterans, writing, "We need to honor the wounded as well as those who died."

He worked for three presidents, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, all of whom turned to Wheeler for advice on defense and military matters.

According to his official bio at Second Line of Defense, a military and security website to which he contributed, Wheeler served as secretary of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and was most recently special assistant to the secretary of the Air Force.

Wheeler urged top universities to drop their opposition to ROTC; several elite schools, including Harvard, linked their opposition of ROTC recruiting on campus to the controversial DADT military policy. Wheeler, a staunch supporter of ROTC, blasted this position. (Now that the policy has been repealed, Harvard and Yale say they are reconsidering their stance on ROTC.)[3]

Death

Wheeler was allegedly last seen on December 28, 2010, aboard an Amtrak train in Wilmington, Delaware[4], where his body was later found in a landfill on December 31.[5] Police ruled his death a homicide and claimed that "all the stops made Friday (December 31) by the garbage truck before it arrived at the landfill involved large commercial disposal bins in Newark, several miles from Wheeler's home".[4]

What kind of stuff might this guy have kept around the house that people might have been looking for.

But yeah, he might not have left this life very peacefully.

Based upon the below two eyewitness reports, it sounds like John P. Wheeler III was dosed with scopolamine, which is the drug of choice by intelligence agencies and Colombian criminals in order to induce a zombie-like state in their victims whereby the victim will follow any order when the dosage is right. Intelligence agencies use it for various purposes, such as a truth serum, to create a patsy, and/or for blackmail by getting the victim to engage in blackmailable activities (including killing another person) that they would have never otherwise engaged in and recording it.

The eyewitness Kathleen Boyer specifically mentioned that Wheeler had red eyes, which in addition to the delirium both she and eyewitness Iman Goldsborough report is one of the side-effects of scopolamine (as scopolamine dries out the mucous membranes).

High-dose scopolamine can induce delirium that lasts for days. However, one can be seemingly coherent and articulate while in the zombie-state depending on what stage of the intoxication one is in.

Both eyewitnesses report that Wheeler told them that he had been robbed. Goldsborough specifically reported that Wheeler told her that his briefcase had been stolen.

Wheeler was wondering around Wilmington, Delaware after he had apparently been robbed, and doing so in a delirious state. This raises the question of how he was killed. If he was indeed intentionally murdered, why would the person(s) who seemingly drugged and robbed him (and possibly did more with him) let him go free to wonder around Wilmington only to pick him up later to murder him? Did Wheeler gain enough consciousness to relize he was in danger and manage to escape, with his escape facilitated by his assailants not expecting it due to his drugged state? Perhaps he managed to get far enough away from them before they realized he was gone such that it took them awhile to find him once they realized he had escaped.

Another possibility is that Wheeler wasn't killed intentionally. It was cold in Wilmington during that time, and Goldsborough mentioned that Wheeler didn't have a coat. Perhaps Wheeler, in his delirious state, crawled into a dumster to try to get warm, and either died by being crushed by the garbage truck or eventually died due to exposure and/or complications of untreated scopolamine overdose (since many people in Colombia die from being dosed with scopolamine). If this is the case, then perhaps Wheeler's assailants had already gotten what they wanted from him and simply let him go; or, Wheeler did escape, and his assailants couldn't find him.

Apparently Russian intelligence uses the code-name SP-117 for scopolamine (complete amnesia of events that occured while under the drug is a common effect, with this effect being dosage-dependent; to the person so affected, after they come-to it can seem to them that they had become extremely tired and fell asleep, when in actuality they were still seemingly awake to others):

A defector from the biological weapons department 12 of the KGB "illegals" (S) directorate (presently a part of Russian SVR service) claimed that a truth drug codenamed SP-117 was highly effective and has been widely used. According to him, "The 'remedy which loosens the tongue' has no taste, no smell, no colour, and no immediate side effects. And, most important, a person has no recollection of having the 'heart-to-heart talk'" and felt afterwards as if they suddenly fell asleep. Officers of the S directorate used the drug primarily to check the trustworthiness of their own illegal agents who operated overseas, including even heroes of the service, such as Vitaly Yurchenko.[14] According to Alexander Litvinenko, Russian presidential candidate Ivan Rybkin was drugged with the same substance by FSB agents during his alleged kidnapping.[15]

Below are some news articles and extracts of articles on intelligence and criminal usage of scopolamine:

########################################

The below is an excerpt from the article "The Pegasus File, Part 1" by David G. Guyatt, Nexus Magazine, Vol. 4, No. 3, April-May 1997 ( http://web.archive.org/web/19990908024412/http://www.nexusmagazine.com/pegfile1.html , http://www.webcitation.org/5vVNo7wdS ):

Other "neutralisations" verge on the bizarre. An individual who must remain nameless for a variety of reasons - but whose name is known to this writer - underwent an experience that is both horrific and chilling. Readers are warned that what follows is not at all pleasant. For the sake of ease, I shall call this individual "Mr X" or, simply, "X".[10]

Mr X was a leader of one of the largest CIA-backed Contra groups. He recently testified before the US Senate Intelligence Committee. Formerly, X was a senior executive in a South American subsidiary of a leading US soft drinks corporation. During his Senate testimony, he denied any knowledge of CIA involvement in the narcotics trade, adding that condoning such activity would have been foreign to his way of life. Not so, says [Dois Gene] Tatum. Mr X had been recruited into the CIA by then-Director William Casey, with the assistance of Oliver North.

In 1990, when Nicaraguan leader Daniel Ortega announced there would be "free elections", X was ecstatic. He began jostling for position and asked President Bush to ensure he be given a prominent position in the new government - in return for his years of toil at the behest of the CIA and the Enterprise. The pressure came in a form that Bush could not ignore. Failure to help his friend would result in X's intimate knowledge of Bush's involvement in the dope trade being made public. His threat left Bush with a sour taste. A Pegasus team was assigned to "neutralise" him in early 1990.

Mr X, Tatum states, "fancied himself a lover of women. Tall, large-breasted blondes were his favourite. It was determined that, if effectively neutralised, [Mr X] could be an asset. Therefore, it was decided that intimidation would be used to control [Mr X]."

They chose to use the drug Scopolamine, which also went by the nickname "Burundanga" or "the Voodoo drug". The drug is extracted from the pods of a flowering shrub that grows in remote regions of South America. In its processed, powdered form, Scopolamine is "void of smell, void of taste". When properly administered "it causes absolute obedience" without this being "observable by others". Importantly, the target will not recall any of the events that occurred during the period they were under the spell of the drug.

In outlining these details, Tatum adds that it is important to administer the drug in the correct dosage, for he has known targets to die from too high a dose. Others have "remained under the influence of Burundanga for up to three weeks". Precise dosage can be achieved by liquid ingestion, the powder being readily soluble. Ingestion via cigarettes is also an optimum method of ingestion. It is fast-acting and takes no more than 20 minutes to work.

Tatum states that X was invited to spend a relaxing weekend at a luxury hotel as a guest of his friend George Bush. His host for the weekend was a trusted 18-year veteran field-intelligence officer. The evening started with cocktails and was followed by a fine meal. "'Nothing but the best' were the orders."

Following the meal, he was ushered into the suite of a "blonde bombshell" supplied by the CIA. Mr X had already ingested a dose of Burundanga during pre-dinner cocktails. X was gallant with the blonde as they both moved into the bedroom where video cameras were already set up in one corner. In short order, the blonde had X standing naked in front of her and began to indulge his desires. All the while, the video cameras whirred. Slowly stripping off, the "blonde" revealed his manhood in all its glory. Mr X was instructed to reciprocate the favour and perform fellatio. He obliged, his intimate activities recorded at 24 frames a second on videotape.

Tatum says the male prostitute was hired from a bar in New York and killed that same evening.

Two weeks later, X - wholly unaware of the events of that evening - was visited in Nicaragua. He was presented with a copy of the video footage, along with instructions. Tatum says that X can never allow that video to be seen: "Not only does it reveal his homosexuality, but it also reveals his bestiality and satanic worship rituals." As frame after frame flicked by, X reportedly wept, forced to watch himself kill his homosexual "lover" and then engage in the most grisly cannabalistic ritual imaginable.

Neutralised, Mr X became a leading member of the Nicaraguan government a few short weeks later.[11]

The Wall Street Journal

July 3, 1995

If you thought cocaine was bad news, wait until you hear about Burundanga.

Burundanga is a kind of voodoo powder obtained from a Colombian local plant of the nightshade family, a shrub called borrachero, or "drunken binge." Used for hundreds of years by Native Americans in religious ceremonies, the powder when ingested causes victims to lose their will and memory, sometimes for days.

When refined the powder yields scopolamine, a well-know drug with legitimate uses as a sedative and to combat motion sickness. But in Colombia, the drug's most avid fans are street criminals. Crooks mix the powder with sedatives and feed the Burundanga cocktail to unsuspecting victims whom they then proceed to rob--or worse.

Doctors here estimate that Colombian hustlers slip the odorless, colorless and soluble Burundanga in food or drink to about 500 unwitting victims in the city each month. About half of the city's total emergency room admissions for poison are Burundanga victims.

"It is a very serious problem," says Fernando Botero, Colombia's defense minister. Adds Camilo Uribe, the doctor who runs the city's formost toxicology clinic and who is in charge of toxicology for all of Bogota's public hospitals. "It's epidemic."

It seems that everyone in Bogota knows someone who has been victimized by the drug, Burundanguiado, as the say in Spanish. In one common scenario, a person will be offered a soda or drink laced with the substance. The next the person remembers is waking up miles away, extremely groggy and with no memory of what happened. People soon discover that they have handed over jewelry, money, car keys, and sometimes have even made multiple bank withdrawals for the benefit of their assailants. Because Burundanga is often given at seedy bars or houses of prostitution, many victims are reluctant to come forward.

"The victim can't say no; he has no will and becomes very open to suggestion. It's like chemical hypnotism," says Dr. Uribe. "From the moment it's given, the victim remembers absolutely nothing of what happened." He adds, "From a criminal point of view, it's got a lot of advantages."

Architect David Meneses says he was Burundanguiado twice in one week last December. Mr. Meneses' first encounter with Burundanga took place on a Friday night when he stopped at a pharmacy to buy antacid. Two well-dressed men approached his car. The last thing Mr. Meneses remembers is one of the men unwrapping a piece of candy. "I woke up the next day at noon at my house," he says. He had no memory of how he got there, though the doorman in his building told Mr. Menseses he saw him come in at 7 a.m. looking nervous and confused.

On Monday, Mr. Meneses checked with his bank, where he was told that his ATM card made 13 withdrawals for a total of about $700 on that lost Friday night. Concerned that he might have unwittingly been involved in criminal activity, or that his car had been used, Mr. Meneses went to the local prosecutors' office where he made a sworn statement saying he wasn't responsible for anything that had happened during the hours he was under the influence of the drug.

Three days later, the luckless Mr. Meneses noticed that he had a flat tire. Two men on the street approached him and offered to change it. "I remember they gave me something to drink, which I can't imagine why I drank," he says. Police found him asleep in his car six hours later. He had been robbed of his radio and about $125.

These days, Mr. Meneses is careful to drive with the windows rolled up. He doesn't venture out much at night anymore. "Burundanga is a very dangerous weapon in the hands of the underworld," he says.

Not all cases of Burundanga involve theft or robbery. Sometimes victims have been used as mules to carry cocaine, says Dr. Uribe's brother Manuel, a neurologist practicing at the clinic. In one incident, says Manuel Uribe, a well-known Colombian diplomat disappeared shortly after leaving a function in Bogota, only to reappear in Chile under arrest for cocaine smuggling. Medical tests showed he had been under the influence of Burundanga, and no charges
were filed.

Camilo Uribe said that in a minority of cases Burundanga is used to lure young women who are then abused sexually. When they are found days later, they have no memory of what has happened to them. "You see that a lot with university coeds," he says.

Camilo Uribe is often called by companies and embassies to talk about the perils of Burundanga. One diplomatic mission that takes the problem very seriously is the U.S. Embassy. Its orientation manual warns freshman diplomats never to visit bars or nightclubs alone. "Druggings in group situations are far less common," the manual says, adding that food and drinks should never be left unattended. At the Colombian unit of Dow Chemical Co., security officials periodically tell employees how to avoid getting Burundanguiado. "There have been many cases," says Oswaldo Parra, the company's legal officer. "It's a very common practice in Colombia."

Curiously, just next door in Ecuador, where the plant is grown commercially for medical purposes, its criminal use is unknown. Instead, the plant is the subject of poetry and myth. If one sleeps under the plant in Ecuador, he will be able to tell the future, legends say.

Here, however, Pedro Gomez Silva, a forensic chemical expert, tells police cadets that for fear of Burundanga, Colombians shouldn't accept food, drinks or cigarettes from strangers, nor buy them from street vendors.

What's more, to be on the safe side, Colombians shouldn't help when asked for directions or the time of day. And forget sidewalk romances. The way things go with Burundanga, flirting with a stranger could lead to a really lost weekend.

Drug Turns Crime Victims Into Zombies

Tue June 17, 2003 08:44 AM ET

By Phil Stewart

BOGOTA, Colombia (Reuters) - The last thing Andrea Fernandez recalls before being drugged is holding her newborn baby on a Bogota city bus.

Police found her three days later, muttering to herself and wandering topless along the median strip of a busy highway. Her face was badly beaten and her son was gone.

Fernandez is just one of hundreds of victims every month who, according to Colombian hospitals, are temporarily turned into zombies by a home-grown drug called scopolamine which has been embraced by thieves and rapists.

"When I woke up in the hospital, I asked for my baby and nobody said anything. They just looked at me," Fernandez said, weeping. Police believe her son Diego was taken by a gang which traffics in infants.

Colorless, odorless and tasteless, scopolamine is slipped into drinks and sprinkled onto food. Victims become so docile that they have been known to help thieves rob their homes and empty their bank accounts. Women have been drugged repeatedly over days and gang-raped or rented out as prostitutes.

In the case of Fernandez, the mother of three was rendered submissive enough to surrender her youngest child.

Most troubling for police is the way the drug acts on the brain. Since scopolamine completely blocks the formation of memories, unlike most date-rape drugs used in the United States and elsewhere, it is usually impossible for victims to ever identify their aggressors.

"When a patient (of U.S. date-rape drugs) is under hypnosis, he or she usually recalls what happened. But with scopolamine, this isn't possible because the memory was never recorded," said Dr. Camilo Uribe, the world's leading expert on the drug.

Scopolamine has a long, dark history in Colombia dating back to before the Spanish conquest.

Legend has it that Colombian Indian tribes used the drug to bury alive the wives and slaves of fallen chiefs, so that they would quietly accompany their masters into the afterworld.

Nazi "angel of death" Joseph Mengele experimented on scopolamine as an interrogation drug. And scopolamine's sedative and amnesia-producing qualities were used by mothers in the early 20th century to help them through childbirth.

Finding the drug in Colombia these days is not hard.

The tree which naturally produces scopolamine grows wild around the capital and is so famous in the countryside that mothers warn their children not to fall asleep below its yellow and white flowers. The tree is popularly known as the "borrachero," or "get-you-drunk," and the pollen alone is said to conjure up strange dreams.

"We probably should put some sort of fence up," jokes biologist Gustavo Morales at Bogota's botanical gardens, eyeing children playing with borrachero seeds everywhere.

"If you ate a few of those, it would kill you."

Although scopolamine can be easily extracted from the seeds, experienced criminals hardly ever bother with them, police say.

Pure, cheap scopolamine is brought across the border from neighboring Ecuador, where the borrachero tree is harvested for medical purposes, Uribe said. The alkaloid is used legally in medicines across the world to treat everything from motion sickness to the tremors of Parkinson's disease.

The use of scopolamine by criminals appears to be confined to Colombia, at least for now, and it's not clear why the drug is such a rampant problem in Colombia. Some analysts blame it on a culture of crime in the Andean nation, home to the world's largest kidnapping and cocaine industries, not to mention Latin America's longest-running guerrilla war.

There are so many scopolamine cases that they usually don't make the news unless particularly bizarre. One such incident involved three young Bogota women who preyed on men by smearing the drug on their breasts and luring their victims to take a lick.

Losing all willpower, the men readily gave up their bank access codes. The breast-temptress thieves then held them hostage for days while draining their accounts.

The U.S. Embassy in Bogota takes scopolamine very seriously and offers staff tips on how avoid being drugged. One piece of advice may seem obvious: Don't let your drinks out of your sight when at a Bogota bar or nightclub.

Still, at least three visiting U.S. government employees here have been drugged and robbed over the past two years. Other American victims from time to time appear at the embassy seeking help, still shaking off a scopolamine hangover.

"I remember one case, an American reported being drugged," an embassy official said. "He says to his doorman 'Why did you let them walk out with my stuff.' The doorman says, 'Because you told me to.'"

Drugged and mugged

Steve Hide is an experienced traveller. He is also a burundanguiado - a victim of drugging. His story should serve as a caution to all of us.

Report Filed February 2000

IN five years' driving buses for tour companies in Latin America, I had heard a lot of travellers' tales. Some of the most far-fetched were about people who had been befriended on the road, drugged, and then robbed of everything they were carrying.

There was the backpacker who "lost" four days after accepting a biscuit on a Bogotá night bus; he woke in hospital 800 miles away. "The bus wasn't even going there" is the twist in the tale. There was the traveller in Quito, Ecuador, who went for a quick drink and woke up, two days later, naked and in a strange apartment. And then, in an interesting variation, there was the Chilean diplomat who was caught smuggling cocaine on an international flight while in a deep trance.

The stories were gripping, but I never saw them as anything other than entertainment. The account was always second- or third-hand, the victim always "a friend of a friend". Then, one night, in a Peruvian bar, the victim was me.

I was halfway through a sip of beer when I blanked out. It was as though someone had drawn a curtain across my conscious mind. Just as suddenly, I was conscious again, but blind. I could hear voices. I had an incredible feeling of calm. Then I blanked out again.

Luckily, friends got me safely back to the hotel. Next day, they gleefully explained the missing minutes from the night before: I had attacked a stranger at the bar, thrown punches, rolled about on the floor; then, in the taxi home, tried to clamber into the front seat and drive. I had needed restraining.

I listened aghast. I had no sense at all of having lost any time. My mind, like an old record player, had skipped a groove.

By chance, several days later, I met two travellers who had visited the same Lima bar. The South African told me he had suddenly got dizzy a few sips into his first beer. He staggered outside, followed by some locals. His friends got to him first, hailed a taxi and took him home. The Dutch traveller told me that the barmaid had warned her of a gang that laces the drinks of tourists and then robs them outside.

The penny dropped: I was a burundanguiado. That is an Andean word for a victim of burundanga, a potent plant extract based on shamans' old potions. A tasteless yellow powder, it has a fearsome reputation in Colombia, the centre of druggings in South America.

It comes from the datura plants once used by the Chibcha people to sedate the wives and slaves buried alive with deceased chiefs. It is still used in remote areas by curanderos (healers) to induce a "waking trance" state, sometimes preceded by sudden outbursts of violence.

Burundanga can be added to food, drinks or cigarettes. In recent decades, its sinister use on the streets has grown from its role as a weapon in Colombia's gang wars. In Bogotá, hospital doctors say it accounts for half of all poisoning admissions, 500 per month.

In other parts of the Andes, it is known as borrachera, "drunken binge". Across the divide in Brazil, drugging crimes are charmingly called Boa noite, Cinderella - Goodnight, Cinderella - after a popular Seventies television show.

Crimes involving datura are also being reported in Ecuador, where it is used as a "recreational" drug, peddled by local guides to thrill-seeking tourists.

It was in Ecuador that I once witnessed the power of a vine called wantu. On the last night of a four-day jungle trip, our local guides brewed up a bitter potion they said was used by experienced shamans. They then talked half of our group of backpackers into drinking it.

Mayhem ensued. The jungle camp turned into a scene from Night of the Living Dead as the dozen or so imbibers crashed zombie-like through the undergrowth, while trying to tear up money or passports - not very successfully, because they had lost most of their faculties, including
eyesight.

Some lay in their hammocks having hallucinations about beasties. Others tottered towards the banks of the Rio Napo, a swift Amazon tributary that is no place to play blindman's buff. We shepherded them into a wooden hut and guarded them until dawn for their own safety.

The next day, our zombies had returned, partly, to the land of the living, although their eyesight was still a bit haywire (some still could not read their watch faces several days later). None could fully recall their antics of the night before and, irritatingly, they did not believe our version of events.

Wantu, like other datura-based drugs, contains a chemical called scopolamine, which has many legitimate medical uses and is cropped for pharmaceutical companies in South America. Minute doses are used as a seasick cure, stronger ones in anaesthesia.

Scopolamine induces a dry mouth, disorientation, loss of vision, a hypnotic state and hallucinations. An overdose can cause heart failure. It also causes memory loss, which is seen as a benefit to patients undergoing surgery. That is less of a benefit to victims on the street, as Elliott Stares, a 26-year-old Londoner, found when he and his brother were coerced to change hotels before being robbed by a "friendly" couple in Recife, Brazil.

"We met them for some drinks, but were quickly rendered completely compliant to their will," he recalls. He remembers being in a bar, then has only glimpses of memory as the brothers were walked back to their hotel and told to collect their gear in readiness for a move to another hotel.

He now believes they were moved to make it easier to rob them. He has no memory of checking into the new hotel, but was later told by counter staff that he and his brother had seemed "drunk and dazed" when they arrived and had needed help from the Brazilian couple.

The brothers slept for 20 hours before waking in their strange lodgings. All their money and credit cards were gone. It took another day for them to get their senses together, says Stares, and through comparing notes and talking to hotel staff they managed to piece together the missing hours. "Sometimes things come back to me, little bites of information, but still most of the evening is vague."

He remembers at one point the Brazilian woman giving him a glass of powdery water, while his brother was lying unconscious nearby. "The amazing thing was that I knew what was happening without even realising any danger. I just went along with it."

This type of drugging is not exclusive to South America. Datura-type plants grow on most continents and have long been associated with druggings both in ritual and crime. Modern science has brought us more refined Mickey Finns such as Rohypnol, Halcion and GHB, chemical hypnotics used in "date rapes" in North America and occasionally turning up in Britain.

The Foreign Office says that embassies throughout the world have noticed a rise in drugging cases, but not enough to call a trend. "It's hard to say if the problem is growing or just being reported more, although it is wise to be alert to it," says a spokesman.

Any assessment of the risk is made more difficult by the entanglement of genuine cases with the fictional. Drugs such as burundanga are often a feature of that durable travellers' tale, "I woke up minus a kidney". Stories of organ theft, which proliferate through the internet, have been thoroughly debunked as modern myth (in one study by the UN, no less). They creep so often into mainstream media, however, that in New Orleans (often named as a city where travellers get separated from their body parts) the police department has threatened legal action against those who publish them. "These allegations . . . are completely fictitious and a violation of criminal statutes concerning the issuance of erroneous and misleading information," says the city's Office of Public Affairs.

In other respects, the internet has been a positive force. Real victims of drugging have turned to it as a way to warn other travellers or to secure justice.

A German backpacker, who was drugged and sexually assaulted by a guide on a jungle tour in Rurrenabaque, Bolivia, in 1998, publicised her ordeal on popular traveller internet sites, describing how in the aftermath she had met with "nothing but indifference from the local police and 'my' German embassy".

Her report gained credibility when several other victims came forward. Warnings were posted inside guidebook covers and on hostel walls. Bolivian police eventually arrested the guide last December, but not before two more alleged attacks. He now faces multiple charges of rape and assault.

In some parts of the world, drugging is linked to sex tourism and the victims are reluctant to talk. Sometimes, they are silenced for good. In the Thai resort of Pattaya, police were called to investigate a spate of deaths from heart attack among men - more than could be explained by heatstroke, over-exertion and over-the-counter Viagra. In nine months, 45 male tourists had dropped dead. According to Thai newspapers, police arrested a gang of prostitutes who had been smearing a knock-out paste on their breasts; they had been a bit over-zealous in the application.

For most of us, the risk of being drugged will arise in less compromising circumstances. The Foreign Office warns tourists to take particular care with their food and drink in Brazil, India, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Turkey and the former Soviet countries. On Russian trains, the word is: "Don't accept any drinks from rail staff."

If you do fall victim, then the official advice is to tell the police and your nearest embassy or consulate as soon as possible. It might not be a good idea to return to your hotel or hostel. "There is a chance the druggers know where you are staying - they may even have copies of your keys - and you could be in continuing danger," says a Foreign Office spokesman.

The embassy itself can act as a temporary safe haven and help with lost tickets, passports and money. The Foreign Office is keen to hear of even minor incidents. If there is credible evidence of a persistent risk in an area, then it can instigate local inquiries and add warnings to its travel advisory bulletins.

Travellers sensibly avoiding the sleazy side of town should take care on buses and trains, and remember that there is no archetypal drugger. Last October, Peruvian police received a dozen reports of druggings by a "sweet middle-aged lady" handing out sweets to passengers on the night bus to Huaraz, a popular resort.

A whole Bolivian family was in on the act on the long-distance bus from Argentina to Bolivia. "They were very friendly," recalls their Danish victim, who passed out after accepting a sip of Fanta from grandmother. He woke to find the family and his bags gone.

Across the Pacific, a couple's trip to Manila last year went awry after they met three "nice, well-educated and rich" Filipinos who invited them to go for a snack. Their after-lunch nap lasted 33 hours, during which £4,000 was wiped off their credit cards.

Such cases make for depressing reading. The offer of food or drink is a time-honoured expression of friendship in most parts of the world (especially on Russian trains) and few travellers would want to miss out on it completely. But, when in doubt, it may be better to say no than take a risk. In areas they regard as dangerous, many experienced travellers make a habit of drinking only from bottles or cans they have opened themselves.

Given that so many druggings happen in bars, it is probably a good idea to ensure that when you have a night on the town it is with people you know and trust: go in a group and try to return together. If you do split up, make sure friends know where you are.

Fraser Devan, from London, says he owes his life to fellow backpackers who found him unconscious on his hotel-room floor 24 hours after his drink was spiked in a nightclub in Bangkok. They got him to hospital, where he spent six days in intensive care.

His narrow escape has not dampened his enthusiasm for travel or for Thailand. He is planning to return to Bangkok on his honeymoon in June - "and I'll be checking out that nightclub to see if anything comes back to me".

USUAL SUSPECT: datura extract is used to spike drinks

HOW YOU CAN AVOID BECOMING A VICTIM

Colombia is one country where the Foreign Office has noted a trend for robberies facilitated by drugging. The British Embassy in Bogotá says that "these attacks frequently occur on public transport and travellers should never accept food, drink or cigarettes from strangers, no matter how friendly or well dressed the individual appears". Food sold by street vendors or in cheap cafes might also have been impregnated with a drug.

Ben Box, the editor of the South American Handbook (Footprint), says that the Andean countries - Colombia, Ecuador and Peru - are particularly known for cases of burundanga poisoning, but that travellers should also be wary in Brazil, Bolivia and Venezuela, where drugs are constantly being smuggled across borders.

He offers the following advice: never accept a bar drink from an opened bottle unless you can see that the bottle is in general use; always insist that the bottle is uncapped in front of you. When buying bottled water, make sure that the seal is unbroken. When travelling in a drug-producing area, especially in Bolivia, Peru and Colombia, check with the embassy or tourist office before going off the beaten track.

Richard Danbury and Melissa Graham, co-authors of the Rough Guide to Chile, are less convinced that drugging poses a serious risk in South America. For safety's sake, however, they say that you should avoid taking a lot of money or jewellery into bars and carry a photocopy of your passport rather than the real thing.

"Keep yourself as safe as possible by travelling in groups and avoid overnight trains, especially in anything other than a lockable compartment in first class. When travelling on public transport, lock your luggage to something solid." Finally, they say, be wary of people who are over-friendly and refuse to take no for an answer.

According to the poisons unit at Guy's & St Thomas' Hospital in London, symptoms of datura poisoning (other than those described by Steve Hide) include difficulty in swallowing and speaking, flushed skin, dilated pupils with blurred vision, vomiting, difficulty in passing urine, rapid pulse, high temperature, drowsiness, slurred speech, confusion, delirium, agitation and combative behaviour. The effects can last up to 48 hours, although the pupils may remain dilated for more than a week. Following recovery, the victim may have amnesia.

The Foreign Office website has updated advice on dangers in particular areas and individual embassies often have more detailed information.

The South American Explorers Club was set up to give advice to people visiting Latin America. Its website has noticeboards where travellers can recount their experiences.

Below is an an excerpt from "1977 Senate Hearing on MKULTRA: 'Truth' Drugs in Interrogation" ( http://web.archive.org/web/20031228151745/http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/history/e1950/mkultra/Hearing04.htm , http://www.webcitation.org/5vVL9hmzw ):

SCOPOLAMINE AS "TRUTH SERUM"

Early in this century physicians began to employ scopolamine, along with morphine and chloroform, to induce a state of "twilight sleep" during childbirth. A constituent of henbane, scopolamine was known to produce sedation and drowsiness, confusion and disorientation, incoordination, and amnesia for events experienced during intoxication. Yet physicians noted that women in twilight sleep answered questions accurately and often volunteered exceedingly candid remarks.

In 1922 it occurred to Robert House, a Dallas, Texas obstetrician, that a similar technique might be employed in the interrogation of suspected criminals, and he arranged to interview under scopolamine two prisoners in the Dallas county jail whose guilt seemed clearly confirmed. Under the drug, both men denied the charges on which they were held; and both, upon trial, were found not guilty. Enthusiastic at this success, House concluded that a patient under the influence of scopolamine "cannot create a lie... and there is no power to think or reason." [14] His experiment and this conclusion attracted wide attention, and the idea of a "truth" drug was thus launched upon the public consciousness.

The phrase "truth serum" is believed to have appeared first in a news report of House's experiment in the Los Angeles Record, sometime in 1922. House resisted the term for a while but eventually came to employ it regularly himself. He published some eleven articles on scopolamine in the years 1921-1929, with a noticeable increase in polemical zeal as time when on. What had begun as something of a scientific statement turned finally into a dedicated crusade by the "father of truth serum" on behalf of his offspring, wherein he was "grossly indulgent of its wayward behavior and stubbornly proud of its minor achievements." [11]

-27-

Only a handful of cases in which scopolamine was used for police interrogation came to public notice, though there is evidence suggesting that some police forces may have used it extensively. [2,16] One police writer claims that the threat of scopolamine interrogation has been effective in extracting confessions from criminal suspects, who are told they will first be rendered unconscious by chloral hydrate placed covertly in their coffee or drinking water. [16]

Because of a number of undesirable side effects, scopolamine was shortly disqualified as a "truth" drug. Among the most disabling of the side effects are hallucinations, disturbed perception, somnolence, and physiological phenomena such as headache, rapid heart, and blurred vision, which distract the subject from the central purpose of the interview. Furthermore, the physical action is long, far outlasting the psychological effects. Scopolamine continues, in some cases, to make anesthesia and surgery safer by drying the mouth and throat and reducing secretions that might obstruct the air passages. But the fantastically, almost painfully, dry "desert" mouth brought on by the drug is hardly conducive to free talking, even in a tractable subject.

Based upon the below two eyewitness reports, it sounds like John P. Wheeler III was dosed with scopolamine, which is the drug of choice by intelligence agencies and Colombian criminals in order to induce a zombie-like state in their victims whereby the victim will follow any order when the dosage is right. Intelligence agencies use it for various purposes, such as a truth serum, to create a patsy, and/or for blackmail by getting the victim to engage in blackmailable activities (including killing another person) that they would have never otherwise engaged in and recording it.

The eyewitness Kathleen Boyer specifically mentioned that Wheeler had red eyes, which in addition to the delirium both she and eyewitness Iman Goldsborough report is one of the side-effects of scopolamine (as scopolamine dries out the mucous membranes).

High-dose scopolamine can induce delirium that lasts for days. However, one can be seemingly coherent and articulate while in the zombie-state depending on what stage of the intoxication one is in.

Both eyewitnesses report that Wheeler told them that he had been robbed. Goldsborough specifically reported that Wheeler told her that his briefcase had been stolen.

Wheeler was wondering around Wilmington, Delaware after he had apparently been robbed, and doing so in a delirious state. This raises the question of how he was killed. If he was indeed intentionally murdered, why would the person(s) who seemingly drugged and robbed him (and possibly did more with him) let him go free to wonder around Wilmington only to pick him up later to murder him? Did Wheeler gain enough consciousness to relize he was in danger and manage to escape, with his escape facilitated by his assailants not expecting it due to his drugged state? Perhaps he managed to get far enough away from them before they realized he was gone such that it took them awhile to find him once they realized he had escaped.

Another possibility is that Wheeler wasn't killed intentionally. It was cold in Wilmington during that time, and Goldsborough mentioned that Wheeler didn't have a coat. Perhaps Wheeler, in his delirious state, crawled into a dumster to try to get warm, and either died by being crushed by the garbage truck or eventually died due to exposure and/or complications of untreated scopolamine overdose (since many people in Colombia die from being dosed with scopolamine). If this is the case, then perhaps Wheeler's assailants had already gotten what they wanted from him and simply let him go; or, Wheeler did escape, and his assailants couldn't find him.

A woman must, however, be conditioned to accept the transition to "reality" when it comes, or sooner.   As the transition becomes more difficult to manage, the family unit must be carefully disintegrated, and state-controlled public education and state-operated child-care centers must be become more common and legally enforced so as to begin the detachment of the child from the mother and father at an earlier age.

In this Deeper Insights book, the movie Jacob’s Ladder was mentioned. This movie shows a unit in Vietnam which was given a drug to make them aggressive, but the drug backfired because they killed each other. However, the reason the movie was allowed to be produced is that it was a good cover for the fact that the military did not give up, but that they actually succeeded in producing their "magic chemical potion" to turn soldiers into killing machines. The biology of aggression has been figured out. Military studies on the relationship between drugs and the ability to kill have been numerous, one example is Gabriel, R.A.

Chemical-Biological Weapons are referred to as CB Weapons. In a transcript attached to the Dept. of Defense appropriations for 1970 (part 6) that I have of CB Weapons researchers talking, they indicate that the United States has BZ which "brings about complete mental disorientation as well as sedation which induces sleep. First of all the individual is completely confused as to what he is doing or what he is supposed to do and in addition he has hallucinations. He cannot carry out his assigned duties nor can he remember what his assigned duties were." The affect of BZ lasts for about 3 days and then the person will begin to recover. It can be given via the air or the water. If it is drank or inhaled it will work. It takes affect about 1 to 1 ½ hours after it is ingested. There are a number of corporations that can produce BZ in the U.S. At the time of the transcript, it was stated that BZ is $20/lb. and a lead time of six months for production. 8:  THE SCIENCE OF BODY MANIPULATION & PROGRAMMING Deeper Insights into the Illuminati Formula

Well, you know, it can be used in many manners. You can put it in tobacco. You can put it in a soda. You can put it in a punch-bowl. It's odorless and tasteless. The results of the drug are a complete-control situation. We - it's nicknamed "borodanga" (sp?), but it actually comes from the nightshade family of a flowering shrub that is pretty well found in Central and South America. Depending on the member of the family that you use, your results will be a little different. We used a particular nightshade bulb for the - for our voodoo drug, as we called it, but a person can be under the control of the voodoo drug, Ted, and you can tell them to go to the bank and withdraw all their funds from the bank, and they'll go do it. The bank-teller can't tell that they're under any influence of any drug. They'll return it to you, and the following day, when they go to the bank, or two days later, when they go to the bank, to get their money out, they won't remember that they withdrew it all and gave it to you.

    Once we had a person on a derivative of scopolamine, escopolaminia (sp?), we didn't need anything else. We could control them for up to three weeks, and, during that three weeks, we could actually alter their personality, so, you know, there was no real requirement for shock-unless, for some reason, there were some discipline problems, or body - you know, the body-size required too much of the drug to take effect. But that was rarely the case. You know, we lost a few people, from overdoses, but that's about it. Transcript of 12 hours of radio interview of Chip Tatum on Intelligence Report.

T: That's what I'm saying, and, you know, I'm - if we look at the Yitzhak Rabin case, I think that that is key. Hinckley recalls doing it. The difference between Hinckley and the man in Israel that shot Yitzhak Rabin is, the man in Israel admitted to it initially, and then comes back and said he doesn't recall any of those instances. That's escopolaminia. Transcript of 12 hours of radio interview of Chip Tatum on Intelligence Report. Ted Gundersson interviewe 1999.

They chose to use the drug Scopolamine, which also went by the nickname "Burundanga" or "the Voodoo drug". The drug is extracted from the pods of a flowering shrub that grows in remote regions of South America. In its processed, powdered form, Scopolamine is "void of smell, void of taste". When properly administered "it causes absolute obedience" without this being "observable by others". Importantly, the target will not recall any of the events that occurred during the period they were under the spell of the drug.  

    In outlining these details, Tatum adds that it is important to administer the drug in the correct dosage, for he has known targets to die from too high a dose. Others have "remained under the influence of Burundanga for up to three weeks". Precise dosage can be achieved by liquid ingestion, the powder being readily soluble. Ingestion via cigarettes is also an optimum method of ingestion. It is fast-acting and takes no more than 20 minutes to work.
    Tatum states that X was invited to spend a relaxing weekend at a luxury hotel as a guest of his friend George Bush. His host for the weekend was a trusted 18-year veteran field-intelligence officer. The evening started with cocktails and was followed by a fine meal. "'Nothing but the best' were the orders."

    Following the meal, he was ushered into the suite of a "blonde bombshell" supplied by the CIA. Mr X had already ingested a dose of Burundanga during pre-dinner cocktails. X was gallant with the blonde as they both moved into the bedroom where video cameras were already set up in one corner. In short order, the blonde had X standing naked in front of her and began to indulge his desires. All the while, the video cameras whirred. Slowly stripping off, the "blonde" revealed his manhood in all its glory. Mr X was instructed to reciprocate the favour and perform fellatio. He obliged, his intimate activities recorded at 24 frames a second on videotape. Tatum says the male prostitute was hired from a bar in New York and killed that same evening.

    Two weeks later, X - wholly unaware of the events of that evening - was visited in Nicaragua. He was presented with a copy of the video footage, along with instructions. Tatum says that X can never allow that video to be seen: "Not only does it reveal his homosexuality, but it also reveals his bestiality and satanic worship rituals." As frame after frame flicked by, X reportedly wept, forced to watch himself kill his homosexual "lover" and then engage in the most grisly cannabalistic ritual imaginable. Neutralised, Mr X became a leading member of the Nicaraguan government a few short weeks later. THE PEGASUS FILE by David G. Guyatt

Video Released In Murder Mystery Of Del. War Vet
http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2011/01/04/video-released-in-murder-mystery-of-del-war-vet/
January 4, 2011 11:35 PM

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) – Eyewitness News has obtained exclusive surveillance video of a former presidential aide that was taken two days before his body was found dumped in a Delaware landfill. The body of John Wheeler III was found in the Cherry Island landfill in Wilmington on New Year’s Eve. The video shows a man that appears to be Wheeler entering the lobby of a parking garage at 5th and King Streets in Wilmington on December 29. An employee of the parking garage said Wheeler look disheveled and said he was looking for his car. The employee also said his right shoe, which appeared to be broken, was in his right hand. “From the way his shoe looked, I would say that it looked like somebody done something to him,” the worker told Eyewitness News. The video then shows the man getting on an elevator and walking around for 20 minutes. After that, he talked to a supervisor before he was escorted out the pedestrian door. Investigators said Wheeler was last seen at 10th and Orange Streets in Wilmington around 3:30 p.m. on December 30. A day later, police were called after Wheeler’s body was dumped out of a garbage truck into the Cherry Island landfill. Investigators said Wheeler’s car was found in its normal parking location in a garage across from the Wilmington train station. “We do know that he was scheduled to take a train from Washington, DC to the Wilmington train station on December 28th. We’re not certain whether or not he was on that train,” Lt. Mark Farrall of the Newark Police Department explained. Farrall says they tracked the trash to locations along College Square and East Main Street. “We are checking surveillance for anybody who may have been in the area around the dumpsters at the time he would have been dumped.”

Cameras plentiful where Del. man's body dumped
http://apnews.myway.com/article/20110105/D9KI6GE00.html
By RANDALL CHASE

NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Whoever dumped the body of a prominent national defense consultant into a garbage bin in a bustling college town risked being detected, either by witnesses or surveillance cameras, with some of the containers in well-lit parking lots, near restaurants and stores. Police don't know which of the 10 bins collected on New Year's Eve in Newark contained the body of 66-year-old John P. Wheeler III, who was last seen alive the afternoon before some 15 miles away in downtown Wilmington. Where he might have been killed and what he was doing on the days leading up to his death also remain elusive, said Newark police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall. "We still don't know the location of the crime scene," Farrall said Tuesday. Much is known about Wheeler's 40-year consulting career. A 1966 West Point graduate and Army officer at the Pentagon during the Vietnam War, he later served the administrations of the last three Republican presidents. During Ronald Reagan's time in the White House, Wheeler headed the Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program and helped get the Vietnam War Memorial wall built in Washington. Under George W. Bush, he helped develop an Air Force program to combat cyber attacks on U.S. weapons systems.

A tipster told police Wheeler was alive on Dec. 30 at 3:30 p.m. near an intersection about four blocks from the office of attorney Bayard Marin, who was representing Wheeler and his wife in a heated property dispute, and about a mile from an Amtrak station where Wheeler often caught the train to Washington. They found his car at the station. Witnesses reported seeing Wheeler acting erratically on Dec. 29, multiple media outlets reported. A parking lot attendant next to the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington said Wheeler was unable to find his car, appeared disoriented and said he had been robbed. She said he was holding one shoe and was not wearing a coat over his suit despite cold weather. Earlier that day, Wheeler had asked a pharmacist in New Castle for a ride to Wilmington. The News Journal of Wilmington said pharmacist Murali Gouro, who had filled Wheeler's prescriptions in the past, said the former official looked upset. Farther south along Interstate 95, The Associated Press traced the garbage truck's path through downtown Newark before it headed to the Cherry Island landfill where workers saw Wheeler's body falling out of the truck as it unloaded. Investigators have said they believe the body was in a bin early in the truck's run. The first stop was a bank in College Square shopping center. Two trash bins at the rear of a bank are just yards away from two surveillance cameras and in sight of several storefronts and a heavily traveled road. Inside one was a pair of white latex gloves, similar to those used by police evidence technicians. Eddie Baker, 55, and his wife, Traci, 44, said they have been scouring the garbage around the shopping center for the past three weeks looking for moving boxes. Baker said he had not seen anything suspicious, but that he had come across homeless people searching, and sometimes sleeping in, the bins. From the bank, the truck headed to the library, where the bin is tucked in an alley between the rear of the building and a fence that partitions the alley from nearby homes. A locked chain-link gate prevents through traffic in the alley, and a surveillance camera guards the area, alerting workers to an AP reporter's presence. Asked whether staffers had talked to police, a man replied, "Not a lot to talk about, unfortunately," before the closing the door.

Security cameras and lights overlook bins on the truck's route behind a Toyota dealership. Those at a McDonald's are in plain sight of a 24-hour drive-thru lane. Just down the street, a small bin is behind another restaurant, across the street from a 24-hour emergency care center whose bins can be seen by residents of a seven-story apartment building. Behind a Goodwill thrift store, several containers are in a lighted area that, according to a sign, is under 24-hour surveillance. Whoever dumped Wheeler's body would have found more privacy at a nearby retirement village and assisted living facility, where the bin is more hidden. The garbage truck's route is 10 miles from Wheeler's home in New Castle. Investigators have searched the home, where yellow police tape can still be seen in the kitchen, but they have not identified it as a crime scene. Wheeler's lawyer Marin said he last spoke with his client on Dec. 27, and did not know what he may have been doing in Wilmington three days later.



Under George W. Bush, he helped develop an Air Force program to combat cyber attacks on U.S. weapons systems.

Not only do the illumninated nutsos kill the guy, but now they are using his death to run cover stories for planned false flags.

Man found in landfill tied to arson attempt
Source: John P. Wheeler 3d planted incendiary devices at a neighbor's home in Del. days before his disappearance.

By John Shiffman and Kathleen Brady Shea

Inquirer Staff Writers

Police in Delaware have discovered evidence that a former Pentagon aide may have been involved in an attempted arson days before his murder, a law enforcement source has told The Inquirer.

Police found evidence linking John Parsons Wheeler 3d to devices planted at the New Castle home of a neighbor with whom he had been feuding, said the source, who is close to the investigation. The feud was over the size of the neighbor's house, which was under construction in the city's historic district.

The source emphasized that the evidence does not shed light on the murder itself, but it has helped detectives understand Wheeler's state of mind before he disappeared.

(http://cbsphilly.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/surveillance-video.jpg?w=320)

January 4, 2011 11:35 PM

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) – Eyewitness News has obtained exclusive surveillance video of a former presidential aide that was taken two days before his body was found dumped in a Delaware landfill.

The body of John Wheeler III was found in the Cherry Island landfill in Wilmington on New Year’s Eve.

The video shows a man that appears to be Wheeler entering the lobby of a parking garage at 5th and King Streets in Wilmington on December 29.

An employee of the parking garage said Wheeler look disheveled and said he was looking for his car. The employee also said his right shoe, which appeared to be broken, was in his right hand.

“From the way his show looked, I would say that it looked like somebody done something to him,” the worker told Eyewitness News.

Based upon the below two eyewitness reports, it sounds like John P. Wheeler III was dosed with scopolamine, which is the drug of choice by intelligence agencies and Colombian criminals in order to induce a zombie-like state in their victims whereby the victim will follow any order when the dosage is right. Intelligence agencies use it for various purposes, such as a truth serum, to create a patsy, and/or for blackmail by getting the victim to engage in blackmailable activities (including killing another person) that they would have never otherwise engaged in and recording it.

This was covered extensively on Savage last night. He thinks it is very odd, too.

There was line that he had something to do with some SEC investigations, but I don't know if that has been confirmed.

 The truth is geting out.
  The Agency has assets (hitters) placed nationaly & globaly. In the event they are in a rush there are mafia-organized crime -buddys willing to do he job through 3 partys.
  TV-movies tend to charaterize the mob a  bunch of spagetti eating, oversized, moronic slobs, that is not the case.

The scopolamine suggests they were trying to get information from him (or information about something he had or had hidden).  Could it have been related to chemical or biological weapons?

Top US Official Murdered After Arkansas Weapons Test Causes Mass Death : John P Wheeler III

Suspicious activities all week at the wheeler residence:
http://www.examiner.com/criminal-profiles-in-national/john-p-wheeler-iii-the-neighbors-twist

I want you all to see a few quotes from the above article

1. Wheeler's last neighbor, and the one who has the most to share about the week surrounding his death, is Ron Roark.

John's neighbor Ron heard loud noise emminating from John's television during Christmas week, and it wasn't the usual occassional program, as Roark says: it was so loud as to be disturbing...and it was continuous for days.


2. two wooden chairs in the Wheeler's kitchen had yellow crime scene tape stretched across them--and several wooden floorboards near the two chairs were missing.
<--- Extreme pro's, Ripping out floor boards to hide traces.

Over 3,000 birds fall dead in AR, over 500 in LA; 83,000 drum fish wash up on shore; 20,000 fish in Chesapeake Bay; 15 tons of fish wash up dying on shores of Brazil. In four days.

This might be worth an in depth look.

A interesting report prepared for Prime Minister Putin by the Foreign Military Intelligence Directorate (GRU) states that one of the United States top experts in biological and chemical weapons was brutally murdered after he threatened to expose a US Military test of poison gas that killed hundreds of thousands of animals in Arkansas this past week.

According to this report, John P. Wheeler III, Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment, was found brutally murdered and dumped in a landfill, and as we can read as reported by the Fox News Service: this article. suggests the ‘odd’ timing of the death of ex-Bush official, John Wheeler with the Arkansas Weapons test. And the connection of dead blackbirds so far happening as far North as Maryland. So a search to see what others are saying - Watch Just Piper for all news on this and expect MSM to spin once again we are conspiracy theorists & fabricate stories to cover this up , as they do everything.

This update on John Wheeler right now from FNC: As expected they will place strong emphasis on the rift with a neighbor. Police have possible new leads on the murder. The entire family was conveniently out of town leaving him all alone. Let’s see how they continue the take his death and spin it. Interestingly his military career included serving in the office of the Secretary of Defense and writing a manual on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons, which recommended that the United States not use biological weapons. –inteltrends.wordpress.com…

Wheeler’s military career included writing one of the most important manuals on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons which led to his being hired in 2009 as a consultant to the Mitre Corporation, whose aviation system development department, the GRU reports, is at the forefront of creating the computer command and control systems used by the U.S. Air Force in their fleet of aerial spraying planes.These aerial spraying planes, this report continues, are based at the Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas that over the past few months have been involved with ‘test dispersants’ of poisonous gasses in the Afghanistan War Theater using chemical weapons stocks obtained from Iraq and held at the Pine Bluff Arsenal, also located in Arkansas. Important to note about the Pine Bluff Arsenal, which calls itself “America’s Arsenal“, is that it is one of the World’s most specialized munitions and chemical-biological defense products and services bases which Russia had previously accused of not fully reporting the chemical agents removed from Iraq, between 2003 and 2008, and taken to the U.S. for testing and subsequent destruction.

In Depth Report: Who Killed John Wheeler?
http://video.foxnews.com/v/4484195/who-killed-john-wheeler/.

Nearly immediately after Russia accused the US this past summer of not fully destroying Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stockpile the Pine Bluff Arsenal began an ‘accelerated’ disposal programme injecting it deep into the ground in central Arkansas, but which, unfortunately, since this past September, has caused over 500 minor earthquakes to occur raising the concerns of their local population.

More frightening, however, is the claim made in this report that the Americans have also begun shipping ‘massive quantities’ of Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stocks to Afghanistan where when used they will be able to say they had nothing to do with it, and believe no one will be able to prove it either.

Important to note about Iraq’s Phosgene poisonous gas stocks are that they are no longer able to be made by any Western country, including the United States, which makes its value as a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) incalculable, especially in a war situation like Afghanistan where the enemy forces are firmly entrenched in hostile terrain.

To the direct reason for Wheeler’s murder, this report says, was this past week’s transport of Iraqi Phosgene poisonous gas aboard a US Air Force KC-767 tanker aircraft from Little Rock Air Force Base enroute to Afghanistan that shortly after takeoff had a ‘critical malfunction’ of its aerial spraying computer directed command and control system over central Arkansas causing the deaths of thousands of red-wing blackbirds. read more www.whatdoesitmean.com/index1435.htm

WHAT IS THIS PHOSEGENE?

Hazard Summary-Created in April 1992; Revised in January 2000
Phosgene is used as a chemical intermediate; in the past, it was used as a chemical warfare agent. Phosgene is extremely toxic by acute (short-term) inhalation exposure. Severe respiratory effects, including pulmonary edema, pulmonary emphysema, and death have been reported in humans. Severe ocular irritation and dermal burns may result following eye or skin exposure. Chronic (long-term) inhalation exposure to phosgene has been shown to result in some tolerance to the acute effects noted in humans, but may also cause irreversible pulmonary changes of emphysema and fibrosis. Limited human studies indicate no increase in the incidence of cancer among workers chronically exposed to phosgene. EPA has classified phosgene as a Group D compound, not classifiable as to human carcinogenicity. INFORM YOURSELVES; MUCH MORE TO READ: www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/hlthef/phosgene.html

VKD: Question: JUST WHO IS THIS "MITRE Corporation"

Snip: "In January 1959, 485 employees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's MIT Lincoln Laboratory[2] transferred to a special not-for-profit corporation called MITRE. The corporation's origins, however, date back to the early 1950s as Division 6 at Lincoln Laboratory, which was headed by former President and Honorary Board of Trustee member Robert R. Everett. It was here that a revolution in technology occurred with the development of the Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) for the United States Air Force. SAGE, a continental air defense system, became the first electronic command and control system. Its function was to monitor United States airspace along its borders. MITRE was created as a result of a request by the Air Force for a company to handle SAGE integration.

"The name MITRE was chosen by one of the original incorporators for its neutrality and positive feel. Some have suggested the choice was based on one meaning of mitre, 'the fitting together of surfaces.' Others have suggested that the first three letters also helped to honor MIT and the original MITRE staff. Perhaps both factors came into play.
"C.W. (Hap) Halligan, from Bell Laboratories, was elected the corporation's first president, while H. Rowan Gaither was named the first chairman of the Board of Trustees. In the beginning, MITRE occupied a series of buildings, including the Ring Building in Arlington, Massachusetts, before settling in Bedford in 1959."

"Less than a year after its founding, the need to locate near the Pentagon dictated the establishment of a liaison office in Virginia. MITRE expanded again in 1963 after the FAA gave the company system engineering responsibility for the projected National Airspace System (NAS). Approximately 20 employees transferred to 108 North Fairfax Street in Alexandria, Virginia. One week later, the Defense Communications Agency announced that it would be assisted by MITRE on the National Military Command System resulting in the transfer of more than 20 additional employees to Virginia. Former President Dr. Charles A. Zraket, then technical director of the Virginia operations, organized the new operation. Today it occupies complexes in McLean and Reston, Virginia."

"MITRE's first site opened in September 1958 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, in support of SAGE Bomarc tests. MITRE's first foreign office was located in Wiesbaden, Germany, and opened on March 8, 1962. Now, more than 40 years later, MITRE's fingerprints can be found on command and control systems all over the world."

According to the Mitretek Systems's history, Mitretek links its origin to The MITRE Corporation. MITRE was itself spun off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory which began in the 1950s as the Lincoln Project at MIT. The Lincoln Laboratory was created to develop ground radar air defense systems for the United States. The MITRE Corporation was established as the "system engineer and overseer for the development of this highly complex system."

Private Federal Corporation
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Private_Government_Corporation
(Redirected from Private Government Corporation)

A Private Federal Corporation (PFC), also known as a Federal Government Corporation (FGC), is a corporation which has been established by the Federal Government. There are, of course, benefits to this, not the least of which would be the disbursement and management of funding by the corporation that would not be subject to Congressional oversight or monitoring. An additional benefit would be autonomy in operations.

Examples of existing PFCs are:
COMSAT
In-Q-Tel
Millennium Challenge Corporation
Federal Prison Industries / UNICOR

"In wholly owned federal corporations, such as the Commodity Credit Corporation, the federal government holds 100% of the equity and exercises 100% of the votes on the board of directors or other governing body ...

"In mixed-ownership federal corporations, such as the RTC and the Resolution Funding Corporation (REFCORP), the United States may own some or none of the equity. A mixed-ownership FGC's charter often guarantees that the President will appoint at least a minority of the directors even if the federal government does not own shares ...

"In private federal corporations, such as COMSAT, the federal government holds no stock but may have a statutory right to select members of the board of directors. A private federal corporation is, formally, little different from a corporation chartered by a state although it may have publicly appointed directors and tax advantages, and its debts may carry an implicit guarantee from the federal government."[1]

"Since 1945 Congress has usually created FGCs for one of four reasons: efficiency, political insulation, subsidy, and subterfuge."

Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC) could possibly be considered another category of PFCs. Totally funded by the U.S. Government, actual administration of the entities are by an outside/non-government contracted source. Some FFRDCs are administered by universities and colleges, others by non-profit institutions, and yet others by industrial firms. Many have existed in this form since the 1950s.

The MITRE Corporation runs 3 FFRDCs for the DoD, FAA, and the IRS. MITRE itself is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. According to Mitretek Systems, the company links its origin to The MITRE Corporation. MITRE was itself spun off from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) MIT Lincoln Laboratory which began in the 1950s as the Lincoln Project at MIT. The Lincoln Laboratory was created to develop ground radar air defense systems for the United States. The MITRE Corporation was established as the "system engineer and overseer for the development of this highly complex system."

Why Phosgene?

Two theories:

It is easy to make, hence to blame on "terrorists" or "extremists".

It is created by light.  (Action of lighton chlorine and carbon monoxide -- sometimes in the presence of catalysts, like light.)

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (generally referred to as Riddle or ERAU) is a private, coeducational university with a history dating from the early days of aviation. Students are enrolled in one of two residential campuses located in Daytona Beach, Florida, and Prescott, Arizona, or in Embry-Riddle Worldwide, composed of over 130 non-residential campuses and online programs. The residential campuses provide education in a traditional setting while Embry-Riddle Worldwide serves civilian and military working adults.

Embry-Riddle began in 1925 as the Embry-Riddle Company, an aircraft dealer and airmail provider, founded by Talton Higbee Embry and John Paul Riddle in Cincinnati, Ohio. Embry-Riddle was eventually incorporated into what is now American Airlines, before reforming during the buildup to World War II in Miami, Florida, as the Embry-Riddle School of Aviation, and later, the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Institute. Embry-Riddle moved to Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1965 and was renamed Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1970. The Prescott, Arizona, campus opened in 1978.

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is an accredited aviation-oriented university.[5] The university utilizes a fleet of over 90 aircraft and serves culturally diverse students primarily motivated toward careers in aviation and aerospace. The university offers bachelor's degrees, master's degrees and recently announced PhD degrees in Aviation and in Engineering Physics at the Daytona Beach Campus and through Embry-Riddle Worldwide. Bachelor's degrees, associate's degrees and non-degree programs are also offered by Embry-Riddle Worldwide.


History

Early days

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University began on December 17, 1925, exactly 22 years after the Wright Brothers' first flight, when Talton Higbee Embry and John Paul Riddle formed the Embry-Riddle Company at Lunken Airport in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company was financed by Embry, a wealthy aviation enthusiast who served as company president. Riddle was named general plumber, and the two began to sell Waco Aircraft in Cincinnati. In spring of 1926 (the date shown on the university seal), the Embry-Riddle Company opened the Embry-Riddle Flying School. On December 17, 1927, the Embry-Riddle Company established Cincinnati's first regular air mail service, from Cincinnati to Chicago.[6]

The school grew rapidly in 1928 and 1929, until the Embry-Riddle Company (now the Embry-Riddle Aviation Corporation) was merged with the Aviation Corporation (AVCO) of Delaware. AVCO phased out the Embry-Riddle Flying School in the fall of 1930. Shortly after, AVCO became American Airways (the predecessor of American Airlines), and the Embry-Riddle Company was gone.[6]
 
The Fritz Hotel in Miami, Florida. The building was occupied by Embry-Riddle prior to moving to Daytona Beach, Florida.

In 1939, Riddle was ready to get back into the business of training pilots. He contacted Embry, who had no interest in reentering a partnership with Riddle. Riddle, now living in Miami, Florida, found a partner in John G. McKay and his wife Isabel. Keeping the Embry-Riddle name, they reestablished the Embry-Riddle School of Aviation, partnering with the University of Miami to provide flight training under the Civilian Pilot Training Program, increasing the number of pilots immediately preceding World War II. The Embry-Riddle School of Aviation expanded rapidly, and soon moved to the former Fritz Hotel.[7]

Riddle and McKay also formed the Riddle Aeronautical Institute at Carlstrom Field, in early 1941 for the purpose of training pilots for the United States Army Air Corps. A separate division of Embry-Riddle provided technical training in maintenance and metal work. Following Pearl Harbor, Embry-Riddle and its various divisions expanded rapidly to train professionals during the war, and the Carlstrom Field facility trained pilots for the Royal Air Force, while nearby Dorr Field prepared pilots for advanced training with the U.S. Army Air Forces.[7]

Embry-Riddle quickly exhausted the market for flight training. In 1944, McKay purchased Riddle's share of Embry-Riddle.[7]

Development into a university

Following the end of World War II, the McKays continued the business of training pilots. After John McKay's death in 1951, his wife Isabel McKay led the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Institute. The school endured financial hardship but continued to operate in its Miami home. Isabel McKay suffered a stroke in 1961 and in 1963 sold the school. That same year, Jack R. Hunt was named the first president of the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Institute.[8] ERAI continued the training of pilots and mechanics in Miami until April 1965, when Hunt moved the campus to its current home in Daytona Beach, Florida.[2]

Embry-Riddle's move from Miami was accomplished by a group of Daytona Beach civic leaders known as the Committee of 100.[9] The school was packed into trucks and moved nearly overnight. Known as "Operation Bootstrap", the move was accomplished with the help of the Daytona Beach News-Journal, which supplied the trucks.

The Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Institute was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1968[10] and was renamed Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1970.[11]

Hunt headed a large expansion of Embry-Riddle, including the purchase of a second campus in Prescott, Arizona, in 1978.[12] Embry-Riddle purchased the former campus of Prescott College, which closed abruptly in 1974 from financial hardship.[13] Hunt served as president until his death on January 7, 1984.[14] Hunt was followed by Lt. General Kenneth L. Tallman, who, in his five years as president, formed Embry-Riddle's first graduate program. Tallman also added undergraduate degrees in Engineering Physics and Electrical Engineering.[11] Current president John P. Johnson credits Tallman with moving ERAU from a technical school to a university.[15]

Embry-Riddle's third president was Dr. Steven M. Sliwa, who presided over the university from 1991 until 1998. Sliwa oversaw the largest expansion in Embry-Riddle's history, developing new majors and a capital expansion in excess of $100 million.[2] This includes the ICI Center (fieldhouse), Lehman Engineering and Technology Center, Capt. Willie Miller Instructional Center and Student Village on the Daytona Beach campus. Sliwa was followed by Dr. George H. Ebbs, who was president until November 2005. Ebbs expanded the university into several affiliate programs and was president during the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Following the September 11, 2001, attacks, federal investigators thought that the school may have trained at least one of the aircraft hijackers. However, after a short investigation, ERAU was fully exonerated from any involvement in the flight training of the terrorists. Although a former student shared the same name as one of the hijackers, that former student was found to have no connections to Al-Qaeda.[16][17][18]

During his tenure as president, Ebbs expanded Embry-Riddle into non-traditional university projects, such as Embry-Riddle's Commercial Airline Pilot Training program (CAPT program), which was sold in 2006.[19] Ebbs also entered the university into a five-year contract with The United States Air Force Academy for Embry-Riddle to provide flight training for its cadets in 2002.[20]

Embry-Riddle's fifth president is Dr. John P. Johnson. Johnson was previously University Provost and Interim President. He was selected after a national search by the Board of Trustees on August 8, 2006.[21]

Organization

Embry-Riddle is organized into two residential campuses in Daytona Beach, Florida, and Prescott, Arizona, and a worldwide campus. Embry-Riddle Worldwide consists of over 130 distance learning centers (many at community colleges and military bases), Worldwide Online (which offers degrees through Internet classes), and the Center for Professional Education (which offers continuing education credits and non-degree programs).

Dr. John P. Johnson is the university president. Dr. Richard H. Heist serves as provost and chief academic officer and directly oversees the deans of each college. Each campus is led by a chancellor and is organized into colleges and departments. University-wide departments are headed by vice-presidents.[22][23]

The university offers bachelor's and master's degrees at the residential campuses and through Embry-Riddle Worldwide.

Embry-Riddle's largest residential campus and academic headquarters is located in Daytona Beach, Florida. The 185-acre (0.75 km2) site has been the home to Embry-Riddle since it moved from Miami in 1965. Built adjacent to the Daytona Beach International Airport, the campus has easy access for flight training. The main campus consists of an aviation complex, academic quad and residence halls surrounding the student center and Jack R. Hunt Aviator Park. Athletic facilities are located at the east end of campus, anchored by the ICI Center.

Total spring 2008 enrollment at the Daytona Beach campus is 4,562; 4,186 undergraduate and 376 graduate students.[4] Aeronautical science (flight training) and aerospace engineering are the two most popular degrees at the Daytona Beach campus. Daytona Beach's aerospace engineering degree program ranks number one in the U.S. News & World Report college rankings of aerospace engineering degree schools without a Ph.D. program.[24] Embry-Riddle has received this honor every year since the category was introduced in 2001.[25]

Embry-Riddle's Daytona Beach campus has one of the most extensive ROTC programs in the nation and the nation's largest Air Force ROTC program.[26] The ROTC program frequently wins national competitions.[27][28][29] The engineering physics program at the Daytona Beach campus is currently the largest undergraduate engineering physics program in the country and the only one specializing in aerospace.[30]

The Daytona Beach campus sponsors 16 intercollegiate sports. The Eagles are members of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics and compete in The Sun Conference. Embry-Riddle's athletics are directed by basketball head-coach Steve Ridder. On October 2, 2006, Ridder was named NAIA National Athletic Director of the Year.[31] Ridder led the school to its only national title in any sport in 2000, in basketball.

Prescott, Arizona, campus
Main article: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Prescott

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott Campus opened in 1978. The 539-acre (2.18 km2) campus is located among Arizona's Bradshaw Mountains approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) from Prescott's airport, Ernest A. Love Field. Prescott is a short drive to Phoenix and within a day's drive of Las Vegas and California. At an elevation of over 5,000 feet (1,500 m), Prescott has mild seasonal weather with moderate daytime temperatures and ideal conditions for flying year-round.

Bioterror fears raised over cargo flights
http://www.bioprepwatch.com/news/225297-bioterror-fears-raised-over-cargo-flights
by Paul Tinder on December 27, 2010

Yossi Sheffi

Security and bioterrorism prevention experts have pointed to the potential vulnerability of cargo flights that pass over the United States each week as potential sources of bioterrorism. These flights, called overflights, do not receive federal standards of screening or use the terrorist watch list, the Washington Post reports.

"(A terrorist could) explode a plane with a dirty bomb or a biological weapon or an actual nuclear weapon on board, and that material will spread wherever it crashes," Richard Bloom, a longtime U.S. intelligence operative and current teacher of counterterrorism courses at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona, said, according to the Washington Post.

While the Transportation Security Administration said that other countries have their own screening processes for cargo, it does not use the same methods as the TSA's Secure Flight program that might weed out potential terrorists, according to the Washington Post. This vulnerability has security experts divided. "We have tens of millions of packages flying almost every night," Yossi Sheffi, director of the Center for Transportation and Logistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said, according to the Washington Post. "We can't stop the huge flow of packages from all over the world. There has to be a balance between acceptable risk and they economy." The recent October plot to detonate bombs placed in printer cartridges designed to detonate in flight evaded X-ray detection even though authorities knew they were in the packages. "Congress would make a mistake by passing a requirement for 100 percent screening of cargo," Rafi Ron, former security chief at Tel Aviv's airport, now a security consultant based in McLean, said, the Washington Post reports. "What's the use of legislating 100 percent screening even if the bomb which triggered this legislation would not have been detected by it?"

MITRE Releases Air Traffic Management Distributed Simulation Specification.
http://www.allbusiness.com/transportation/air-transportation-airports-air/5114266-1.html
Publication: Business Wire
Date: Monday, October 31 2005


DALLAS -- At the Air Traffic Control Association's 50th Annual Conference, The MITRE Corporation's Center for Advanced Aviation System Development (CAASD) announced the release of a technical standard for interconnecting real-time air traffic management (ATM) simulations over the public Internet.

This new standard, known as AviationSimNet(TM), will allow the aviation community to test and evaluate new air traffic management systems, concepts, and procedures through integrated real time simulations that are geographically distributed among research laboratories, academia, commercial companies, and airlines.

In the development of AviationSimNet, MITRE CAASD worked closely with experts at NASA Langley Research Center, United Parcel Service, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, the FAA's William J. Hughes Technical Center, and others in the aviation community.

AviationSimNet incorporates community knowledge and experience gained from previous distributed simulation activities. As a standard specification, AviationSimNet is designed to be reusable, reconfigurable, extensible, scalable, and highly flexible. Leveraging the existing public Internet infrastructure helps reduce the cost of distributed simulation while providing availability to the widest possible set of participants. This will help the aviation community reduce costs and save time when evaluating and fielding new systems, concepts and procedures. The AviationSimNet specification is built upon proven simulation and communications standards including the High-Level Architecture (HLA), TCP/IP, and IEEE Voice DIS 1278.1a.

Earlier this month, NASA and MITRE successfully demonstrated AviationSimNet by linking NASA-Langley cockpit simulators in Hampton, Virginia to Air Traffic Management and cockpit simulations at MITRE facilities in McLean, Virginia and Bedford, Massachusetts. Three different types of flight deck simulations from Langley were integrated for the demonstration: the Integrated Flight Deck, the Integrated Research Deck and 12 Air Traffic Operations Laboratory flight deck simulations. In the demonstration, two concepts were successfully integrated: (1) NASA-Langley's Airborne Precision Spacing and (2) the FAA's Cockpit Display of Traffic Information-Assisted Visual Separation standards.

MITRE Aviation Institute: Aviation from A-Z (and Beyond)
http://www.mitre.org/news/digest/aviation/01_03/a_aviation_institute.html
January 2003


Everything MITRE knows about aviation can't be squeezed into a series of courses on aviation issues and technologies—but some of it has been.

These courses are designed for a wide range of people across the global aviation community looking to fill gaps in their knowledge—or looking for a custom-designed class on a specific issue.

It started with just a few requests from employees—employees who wanted to better understand the increasingly complex world of aviation: Is there a straightforward class in air traffic management we can take? Can we learn more about the wide array of aviation systems? Can someone help us put it all together? (Can you explain why my flight was delayed?) As these questions began popping up in the late 1990s, it didn't take long for the corporation to realize there was a real need internally—and externally—to put some of its knowledge into a formal program of courses in aviation systems, aviation safety, and aviation efficiency. A few short brown bag sessions turned into formal classes and before long the MITRE Aviation Institute (MAI) was born.

MITRE has worked on aviation problems since it was created in 1958. This work grew over the years and in 1990 the Center for Advanced Aviation Systems Development (CAASD), a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), was born. CAASD works primarily for the FAA, but also works with civil aviation authorities around the world, giving them a broad perspective on aviation problems and solutions.

"In the beginning, we worked with the MITRE Institute, our well-regarded training program, offering short courses in aviation," explains Chen-Chung (CC) Hsin, director of the MAI. "Around 1998, it became clear that a more comprehensive specialized program in aviation would be a terrific complement to the MITRE Institute curriculum. We put together a significant training effort, and in a brief period of time the program has grown and thrived."

Initially, the MAI offered courses to an audience of MITRE employees, primarily those from CAASD. "We looked at critical aviation needs from a national/international interest perspective; that's how we developed and approached our courses and how we help fulfill MITRE's role managing the FFRDC for the FAA," explains Hsin. "Our charter is to advance global safe and efficient aviation. We do that by providing courses that offer real-world knowledge to participants in our areas of expertise."

MITRE's CAASD works closely with both government and industry in its work, since solving critical aviation problems, such as airspace capacity, requires collaboration from all parts of the aviation community. So, it didn't take long for our partners to realize the benefits of MAI classes. Today, the MITRE Aviation Institute is gaining recognition in the aviation world as a training and knowledge leader. "It's very rewarding that our government and industry partners come to us for training in our core areas—communications, navigation and surveillance, air traffic management, airport planning and operations, airspace analysis and design, and aviation safety and security," notes Hsin. "In fact, in many of our courses, half or more of the students are from the FAA or industry. At a recent Introduction to Air Traffic Management class, a representative of the Korean Civil Aviation Bureau participated in the course.

"We make it a point not to make these "CAASD" courses, but rather curriculums that focus on the importance of systems engineering, systems planning, and the systems approach in aviation," Hsin adds. "Our audience knows we have the expertise in these areas, and they value what we can teach their people. When we transfer MITRE knowledge and technical expertise worldwide, we're doing the job we're meant to do as an FFRDC."
      
"The more courses we offer, the better the community is trained and the better equipped they are to make decisions related to aviation systems, safety, and efficiency."




Sharing "Big Picture" Knowledge

MAI training is available to a wide and diverse audience: civil aviation executives, airline executives, airport managers and planners, aviation systems technical experts, and aviation consultants. The MAI staff provides regularly offered courses and seminars as well as customized programs that are developed for a specific audience. "These classes fill a variety of needs. For example, in one course we are giving senior executives a high-level view of air traffic management," explains Nancy Toma, MAI lead staff member. "There's obviously a lot of technical background in this field; our programs help the executives become familiar with the aviation systems, so they can ask the questions that should be asked.

"We also can help experts in one particular field, such as navigation, see the big picture of aviation and how their work fits in with all the other pieces. Sharing these best practices benefits the global aviation community and travelers in the United States."

Adds Hsin, "The more courses we offer, the better the community is trained and the better equipped they are to make decisions related to aviation systems, safety, and efficiency."

To make the MAI program more cross-cutting, CAASD collaborates on the curriculum with associations and universities such as the Air Traffic Control Association, American Association of Airport Executives, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, George Washington University, and NAVCANADA. In that same vein, the MAI serves as a knowledge base for the global aviation community. "We hope the MAI can advance safe, secure, and efficient travel around the world," says Hsin. "If civil aviation authorities (FAA equivalents in other nations) learn what we have to teach, they can make better decisions regarding their airspace and other aviation needs. Since the world is getting smaller all the time, so to speak, the FAA is served and Americans who fly internationally are served, too, through our work."

Mike Hermes of CAASD's System Assessment and Implementation Department recently took the newly offered MAI course in Aviation Safety and Security. He was pleased to take a class that will help him keep up with recent changes in the aviation security area. "Regulations and issues related to airport security have been changing very rapidly," he notes. "I wasn't sure I was up to date in all areas. I received a lot of critical information by experts in the field during the course; they compressed a lot into those two days."

 


Customized Training

While courses such as Introduction to Air Traffic Management (ATM) and Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/ATM are appropriate for a wide aviation audience, other MAI courses have been developed for specific groups with explicit information needs. "We'll develop a course or a curriculum on a particular topic or area of interest," notes Toma. "One group might want information about managing oceanic airspace, for example, while another might want information on developing internal evaluation programs for airlines. Our scope and depth is significant enough to meet those diverse needs."

Here's an example of customized training: The Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois asked MITRE to develop training materials for a new ATM and airline dispatch capability. Since MITRE works with both the Command (through its Department of Defense FFRDC) and the FAA, it was easy to develop the appropriate air traffic management materials. "Working with our peers in MITRE's DOD FFRDC, we went to Scott Air Force Base with customized training materials and conducted a two-week session there," says Hsin. "With expertise in both the Air Mobility Command's world and the FAA's, our team was able to develop a program that easily and successfully hit the mark."

In August 2002, the MAI received a contract from China to provide training for implementing a traffic flow management system. (CAASD has been working in China for five years on the design of airport information systems and the planning of China's Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/ATM systems.) The Institute has also traveled to other international locations to meet the aviation training needs of numerous civil aviation authorities—from determining requirements for a new airport or runway to better understanding airspace use in the region.


A World-Class Environment

Currently, 60 members of the CAASD team (20 percent of its technical staff) are MAI faculty members. "We work to create a world-class environment at MITRE," says Hsin. "The MAI is a partner in this effort by providing training that allows MITRE CAASD staff the opportunity to realize professional growth as students and to share their knowledge as instructors. The MAI benefits all of MITRE by offering courses that are continuously updated to reflect the latest trends in the aviation arena. It is an ongoing effort to remain on the cutting edge and provide up-to-date information to our students. Teaching at the MAI is an excellent way for MITRE's staff members to step outside of their regular work life, and it creates a platform to share their aviation expertise."

Current core MAI courses include:
Introduction to Air Traffic Management, a comprehensive three-day course that covers everything from aviation history to flight planning and systems engineering. Instructors include former pilots, air traffic controllers, product developers, and systems engineers.
Communications, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management, a detailed course on communications, navigation, and surveillance, as well as air traffic management technologies and processes.
Airport Planning and Operations, a program on the basic concepts and techniques being used to plan and operate airports.
Airspace Planning and Analysis, a thorough curriculum on understanding airspace management processes and identifying challenges (and determining possible solutions); it also provides information on simulation tools available today.
Aviation Safety and Security, a course that focuses on principles of safety and security as they impact the different components of the aviation industry—airports, airlines, aircraft, air traffic control, and information security.

Well the birds may well have died from homeless unacknowledged phosgene stupidly dumped down deep wells on New Madrid and then perhaps even unexpectedly released due to increased earthquake activity caused by fracking, regardless of the rather unlikely KC767 spraying theory, (all well and maybe still not so good)

But there is another troubling inconsistency in Wheeler's CV at sldinfo.com (http://www.sldinfo.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/John-Wheeler-Bio.pdf) quoted here by citizenx


October 2009
BIOGRAPHY OF JOHN WHEELER
John Wheeler is a defense consultant. He served as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment.

/clip he was first, a consultant to Rumsfeld, but supposedly not before 2004 clip/

Mr. Wheeler graduated from West Point in 1966, serving as a staff officer in Vietnam, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the Joint Staff before leaving active service in 1971. While on active duty, he authored the first Biological and Chemical Joint Munitions Effectiveness Manual and the analysis supporting the President’s decision that the U.S. will not use biologicals. He was also on the Red Integrated Strategic Operational Plan Team to test the Single Integrated Operational Plan. His career combines federal service and starting up, growing and turning around companies and charities. He was Secretary, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, on the team that worked major insider trader investigations, and consultant to the acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics regarding tankers and other issues.

/clip  This would be S&L guard dogging plus the Rezah Saleh/Ross Perot smear-hitjob and guarding the Wyly Bros  clip/

9. 1978 – 1986, Assistant General Counsel, Special Counsel to Chairman, and Secretary, Securities and Exchange Commission, Washington, D.C. (1980 – 1981, on loan per President Reagan to create Vietnam Veterans Leadership Program)
10. 1986 – 1988, self-employed specialist in startups and turnarounds of companies, charities
11. 1988 – 1989, President G.H.W. Bush Transition Team to create Earth Conservation Corps, Washington, D.C.
12. 1989 – 1997, self-employed specialist in startups and turnarounds of companies, charities
13. 1997 – 2001, President and CEO, Deafness Research Foundation, Washington, D.C.
14. 2001 – 2005, self-employed specialist in startups and turnarounds of companies, charities (2004 – 2005, consultant to acting Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, Washington, D.C.)

15. 2005 – 2008, Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C.
16. 2008-2009 Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Energy.
17. 2009. Consultant to Mitre Corporation.


There is one really fishy problem with the claims, chronology and the job listings the final review and development testing of the Red Integrated Strategic Operational Plan (RISOP) Team to test the Single Integrated Operational Plan. (one of the last directives of Clinton, left over from Bush 1) took place at the Pentagon during the time it is claimed he was running this Deafness Research "foundation". This last RISOP ("Red" Planning Board -RPB) test update places him at the Pentagon while the last (post Soviet) NPR (http://www.fas.org/blog/ssp/united_states/NPR2001re.pdf) was being tested and completed by the RPB of STRATCOM in Dec 2001


Quote from: http://www.fas.org/blog/ssp/2008/07/risop.php
But despite statements about the importance of ending the adversarial relationship with Russia, changing the nuclear planning against Russia apparently was not a priority and would have to wait almost the entire first term of the Bush administration. The NPR was completed in late 2001, the NPR Implementation Plan published in March 2003, the new Nuclear Weapons Employment Policy (NUWEP) signed in April 2004, and a new Joint Strategic Capabilities Plan nuclear supplement issued in December 2004, formally removing the requirement for the RISOP. Finally, in February 2005, four years and two months after the NPR, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff issued the instruction that formally cancelled the RISOP and the RPB (see Table 1).

Table 1:
The Slow Wheels Of Change

Dec 2001: NPR completed
Mar 2003: NPR Implementer issued
Apr 2004: NUWEP published
Dec 2004: JSCP-N signed
Feb 2005: RISOP canceled

Despite the policy change toward Russia, the RPB had not made any changes to the RISOP since 1998, following President Clinton’s PDD-60 directive that removed the requirement to plan for protracted nuclear war with Russia. As one Joint Staff official remarked in an email: “Sometimes the wheels of change move slowly.”The U.S. strategic war plan – OPLAN 8044 Revision 05 – is currently structured around a reduced but more flexible posture with the same overall Triad structure as during the Cold War and over 1,000 nuclear warheads on high alert. Surprisingly, although RISOP was canceled in 2005, no revision has been made to OPLAN 8044 since October 2004 – the first time in U.S. post-Cold War nuclear history that the nation’s strategic war plan has not been overhauled at least once per year (see Figure 3).


http://www.fas.org/programs/ssp/nukes/doctrine/RISOPforward082404.pdf


This 2004 STRATCOM Doctrine abolishing the RBL places Mr Wheeler's consulting on the final RISOP-type analysis that was under review and development as per CJCSI 3232.01b beginning in 1999 which resulted in OPLAN 8044 Revision 05, which still remains the Pentagon Mob's current Armageddon Bible.

This time framing puts better perspective on the (rather hard to confirm) allegation I've received confidentially that claims to identify a certain "acting under Secretary" and none other than Mr John Wheeler in his characteristic well dressed shirt sleeves, dark suit pants and typical suspenders as the rather portly "logistics guy" on the left in this curious early morning photo, which I've also long had great curiosity about:

(http://www.rense.com/1.imagesH/tarp.jpg)

Unlike uniformed officers, Joint Staff members with such sorts of clearances, seldom "come and go" as they please, they serve certain political administrations or temporarily "check out" and/or get spun off to DIA or other agencies (SEC) as operatives. When they do "charity" (and yet still return) they are still getting a pay check for something else.

Can anybody else identify anyone this group? (before they also meet similar fates?)

Apparently it's not about MADD DUI Checkpoint police state thing, nor any of his other publicized duties for the Joint Staff, it had something to do with with this legal (and other) work on a troublesome Company run, front company "startup" called Blackwater.

I guess tossing smoke bombs alone is not all it takes to make you a "Homeland" security risk, unless you had also made the mistake of keeping someone else's skeletons buried in your kitchen as your own "doomsday" ace in the hole.

Quote from: http://redactednews.blogspot.com/2011/01/john-p-wheeler-iii-former-special-asst.html
MITRE Corporation is described on its website as a ”trusted adviser to the U.S. military, MITRE’s Defense International Operations program also develops command and control and engineering solutions for NATO members and other U.S. allies.” It is primarily located in McLean, VA, a not-for-profit corporation tasked to US intelligence and other federal agencies, probably one of the creepiest agencies you've never heard of.

MITRE was one of the business partners of computer company Ptech, when it came out in December 2002, that Ptech (Quincy, Massachuseets) was secretly owned by terror finance suspect Yassin al-Kadi , one of 12 Saudi businessmen  accused of funneling millions of dollars to terror organisations run by Bin Laden.

Is MITRE Corp. The Trojan Horse of 9/11?

Another Dead Body From the Cheney Dual Nuclear Chain-of-Command Days Turns Up  
John Wheeler's suspicious death latest in many of Air Force officials
in the last few years.



WMR | Former special assistant to Secretary of the Air Force Michael Wynne, John Wheeler III, also a veteran of the GHW Bush and Reagan administrations, was discovered at the Cherry Island landfill in Wilmington, Delaware on December 31 after it was dumped from a sanitation truck that originated its run in Newark, Delaware. Wheeler's wife lives part-time in Harlem, New York where she reportedly runs a Cambodian silk import business.

On December 31, 2010, Wilmington Police issued the following press notice: "At 9:56 a.m., Wilmington Police were called to the landfill on East 12th St. Upon arrival, officers were directed to a dump site within the landfill where they located a male body lying in a pile of rubbish. This incident is being handled as a suspicious death investigation. The victim’s identity has not been confirmed at this time. The body has been turned over to the State of Delaware Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the cause of death. Anyone with information regarding this crime, please contact Criminal Investigation Division at 302-576-3620."

The body was later identified as Wheeler's. Wheeler was last seen on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington on December 28.

John P Wheeler III: Former Special Asst to Air Force Sec, Member of Council on Foreign Relations, Consultant to Mitre Corporation Found Dumped in Landfill

White House Insider John Wheeler Was “Disheveled And Confused” Two Days Before His Death




Wheeler, a West Point graduate, former Army officer, and lawyer, served under Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne until Wynne and Air Force chief of staff General T. Michael Moseley. Wynne and Moseley were fired by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates on June 5, 2008, over a breakdown in the security of nuclear weapons under Air Force control, particularly at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. Wheeler left his Air Force position in June 2008, the same month Wynne and Moseley were fired. After leaving the Pentagon, Wheeler took a job with MITRE Corporation.




While assisting the Secretary of the Air Force, Wheeler was primarily tasked with "standing up" Cyberspace Forces and providing Precision Strike technology and Real Time Streaming Video targeting links U.S. ground combat troops. It was one such targeting video from Baghdad that was among Wikileaks's first major discloures of U.S. classified information that led to charges that the U.S. was indiscriminantly killing civilians in Iraq.

Wheeler was also known to be a strong opponent of the use of biological weapons by the United States. Wheeler was last seen on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington on December 28. Wheeler was also chairman of the fund that raised money to build the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, DC. In that role, Wheeler had a testy relationship with one of the major funders of the project, former independent presidential candidate H. Ross Perot. While serving as director of the Vietnam Veteran's Leadership Foundation, Wheeler was also special counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission durung the 1980s.



According to various Washington Post  reports from the time, on November 4, 1983, Wheeler filed a criminal complaint with the Montgomery County Police Department against WDVM [which is now WUSA] Channel 9 investigative reporter Carlton Sherwood for illegally taping a conversation between himself and Wheeler at Wheeler's home in Bethesda, Maryland. Sherwood, like Wheeler, served in Vietnam. However, Sherwood began investigating for Channel 9 where most of the $9 million raised for the Vietnam memorial by Wheeler and memorial fund president Jan Scruggs was spent. Sherwood was arrested by Montgomery County police on November 7, 1983. Channel 9's news management maintained that two audits of the fund were less-than-detailed. In 1984, WDVM retracted its investigative series on the "financial propriety" of the memorial fund and apologized for the story. Sherwood later went to CNN as a special assignments reporter and The Washington Times and he was active in the "Swift Boat Veterans" criticism leveled against 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's Vietnam combat record.
Wheeler, as special assistant to Wynne, would have known about the dual nuclear chain-of-command established by Vice President Dick Cheney, bypassing the Defense Secretary and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, that resulted in a spate of nuclear surety and security incidents during 2007 and 2008.

WMR reported on those incidents from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana in 2008.

On April 21, 2008, WMR reported:"There is something radically wrong with America's control over its nuclear weapons, particularly those maintained by the U.S. Air Force. After a long investigation, it can now be reported that there is, in effect, two de facto nuclear chains-of-command in the Air Force, one with dangerous links to the neocon cell that exists within the office of Vice President Dick Cheney and Air Force headquarters, the other acting within the bounds of established nuclear weapons surety and control.

On August 30, 2007, a B-52, assigned to the 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale AFB, left Minot AFB with reportedly five AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles armed with W-80-1 nuclear warheads. The number five apparently was reported to Air Force Times, a Gannett publication, by three high-ranking Air Force officers who blew the whistle on what was later described by the Air Force as a 'mistake.' Later, the Associated Press said there were six nuclear armed missiles on board the aircraft. In theory, there should be no discrepancies for such a small number and for such a serious incident.

The B-52 flew 3 1/2 hours across the United States with missiles thought by the B-52 crew to be "dummy warheads" being shipped to Barksdale for 'disposal' under the US-Russian Strategic Offensive Reductions (SORT) arms treaty.

There was, according to sources WMR spoke to at both Minot and Barksdale Air Force Bases, no mistake whatsoever in the transfer of the nuclear-tipped cruise missiles to Barksdale. One airman who had been a bomb loader for 11 years in the USAF relayed, "that was no mistake. That was a major operation."  The cover story was that the cruise missiles were flown to Barksdale for decommissioning. However, conventional cruise missiles are sent to Davis-Monthan Air Force base in Tucson, Arizona for decommissioning while nuclear missiles, according to the former 2nd Bomb Wing official, are sent to Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. The nuclear warheads are sent to either Sandia National Laboratories or Pantex in Texas for disposal. Barksdale plays no part in the missile decommissioning process. Barksdale is, however, a major deployment base for Middle East air operations.
It has been discovered that there were a series of security 'incidents' directed by what amounts to a renegade nuclear chain-of-command that permitted five or six nuclear 5 to 150 kiloton thermonuclear weapons to remain outside of legitimate control for some 36 hours, resulting in a rare Bent Spear nuclear incident report that quickly reached the Oval Office.

The rogue nuclear chain-of-command starts at the White House office of Vice President Dick Cheney, with significant influence from Cheney's Chief of Staff David Addington, and extends to Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne, and further to the Air Force Chief of Staff General T. Michael Moseley."

Our report continued: "Minot's 5th Bomb Wing Commander, Col. Emig, who had been transferred to Minot only three months before the August 30 nuclear incident, was transferred to the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Division at the Air Combat Command at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. One of the Air Force's primary UAV contractors is Northrop Grumman, which has a cooperative relationship with Israel Aircraft Industries on using Israeli UAV technology, particularly for the Global Hawk UAV.
Emig's colleague, 5th Maintenance Group commander, Col. Cynthia Lundell, was not as fortunate. Directly responsible for the nuclear weapons at Minot, Lundell was transferred to a 'dead end' special assistant job at Warner Robbins Air Force Base in Georgia. WMR has learned that Emig was in charge of Minot when a number of experienced senior non-commissioned officers and officers, including those directly responsible for nuclear surety and safety, were suddenly transferred on temporary assignments to Iraq and Afghanistan from Minot in the months and weeks prior to the nuclear incident.

It is clear that the rival nuclear chain-of-command acted outside the authority of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and used a little-known nuclear weapons protocol known as the 'permissive link' that allows nuclear weapons to be moved and used outside of presidential authority and the transmittal of nuclear codes found in a briefcase known as the 'football' that is always carried by the President's military aide . . .

A little over a week after the Minot-Barksdale nuclear weapons incident, the body of US Air Force Captain and Major-selectee John Frueh, assigned to 'Operations Weather' at Hurlburt Field, adjacent to Eglin, was found near is rental car, near Badger Peak in Washington state. Frueh was in Portland to attend his best friend's wedding. Frueh's last phone call to his family in Florida was from a pay phone at Portland International Airport on August 30, the very same day the B-52 flew with the loose nuclear missiles from Minot to Barksdale.

Frueh was a U.S. Air Force Special Operations 'Weather Warrior' with the 10th Combat Weather Squadron at Hurlburt Field. Weather Warriors are, according to the Air Force, 'Special operations weathermen [who] are meteorologists with advanced tactical training to operate in hostile or denied territory." It should be noted that Iran is considered "denied territory' by the U.S. military.

Frueh was last seen on August 29 in Portland. He was carrying in his backpack at Global Positioning System (GPS), camera, camcorder, and cell phone. Oddly, Frueh's last call to his family was from a pay phone at the airport and not from his cell phone.

There were initial reports that when the B-52 from Minot landed at Barksdale on August 30, it sat on the runway for as much as ten hours, virtually unguarded with five or six nuclear weapons under its starboard wing. However, WMR spoke to a former high-ranking officer with the 2nd Bomb Wing in Barksdale who said that the security for the movement of any nuclear weapons is extremely tight. The officer said that when the nuclear weapons were removed from their highly-secured bunkers, known as 'igloos,' within the similarly highly-secured weapons storage facility at Minot, two-person controls, constant checks of the weapons' serial numbers, higher officer sign-offs, the clearing of a secure route from the weapons storage facility to the B-52 on the ready alert apron by armed security personnel, the placement of orange cones around the nuclear weapons while they are stationary, and the entering of the weapons types on the B-52 flight log, known as the '781.' The '781' would inform the crew whether they were carrying conventional or nuclear warheads, either under the wings or in the plane's interior . . .

WMR's special report continued on April 25, 2008: "On August 24, 2007, three B-52s operating from Barksdale flew a training exercise called REX REDUX, officially billed as a commemoration of a 1938 B-17 flight directed at the Italian luxury liner SS Rex. The exercise, personally ordered by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley, was actually testing an Israeli-developed imaging and targeting pod called LITENING II on a U.S. Navy contracted merchant vessel, the USNS Bobo, in the Atlantic east of Bermuda and several targets of opportunity along the planes' flight paths through the southern United States.

REX REDUX also involved assets of the Air Force's embryonic Cyber Command in Washington and Barksdale.

Four days later, on August 30, a Barksdale-based B-52 flew six nuclear warhead tipped AGM-129 advanced cruise missiles from Minot to Barksdale. The incident was later called a "mistake" by Air Force officials. However, three high-ranking Air Force officers leaked the incident to the Air Force Times.

Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne, a key member of the rival chain-of-command, rewarded his loyalists in Barksdale by announcing the base had been selected as the preliminary headquarters for the Air Force Cyber Command. Wynne made his announcement at a Shreveport gambling casino. Wynne, according to a CNN report, advocated the testing of nonlethal weapons, like high-power microwave weapons, against American citizens. Wynne said, 'If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation.' . . .

The rival nuclear chain-of-command that was responsible for the Minot nuclear incident, REX REDUX, and associated events is as follows:
 Vice President Dick Cheney


-- Chief of Staff David Addington
Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley
-- Gen. Lawrence Stutzriem, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Strategic Studies Group - CHECKMATE
-- Dr. Lani Kass, ex-Israeli Air Force, Cyber Warfare, US Air Force, CHECKMATE
Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, Commander 8th Air Force, Barksdale Air Force Base
Col. Bruce Emig, Commander 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base (relieved of command after nuclear incident)
Maj. Gen. Stephen Goldfein, Commander Air Warfare Center, Nellis Air Force Base. . .

In July 2007, there was another unusual incident involving Minot security, one of many reported during the summer of 2007 by Minot security personnel. Found in the Minot Police Department's files is case number CFS# 07-16088. The case involved the misappropriation of a cache of military supplies by two Air Force sergeants assigned to guard nuclear weapons at Minot. The report states: 'Minot Air Force Base Investigations called requesting assistance in locating and apprehending two individuals that had filed a report about missing military equipment.' The two individuals reported the theft of the equipment from a vehicle parked in the city of Minot.

Minot police went to an address of one of the Air Force security personnel in Minot and found 'several other people that were also at the residence.' There were a total of three military personnel at the residence. The police went to a second residence of the other Air Force security sergeant and found 'several flash bang grenades along with one smoke grenade.' One of the Air Force security guards from Minot had originally reported military equipment being stolen from his car in Minot on July 17, 2007. However, the report was false. The two security personnel were actually hording the military equipment for what they described was a 'plan.' Minot Air Force Base security later clamped a gag order on all discussions about 'the plan.' . . .

Nor was Minot the only base involved with the August 30 nuclear incident to experience an unusual event with its nuclear security personnel. On September 27, 2007, the police blotter in the Shreveport Times reported the following:
'A Barksdale Air Force security forces airman was accidentally shot early Thursday, base officials said.

The shooting occurred during shift change about 7:30 a.m. at the 2nd Security Forces Squadron headquarters in Hangar 3. The airman was shot by a fellow security staffer. The incident remains under investigation, so officials could not say what action, if any, may result from the incident.'

There is also the possibility that an Air Force carve out contract may have been used to support the rival chain-of-command. The FBI and Pentagon are investigating a sole source Air Force contract with Commonwealth Research Institute (CRI), a non-profit intelligence subsidiary of Concurrent Technologies.

Charles Riechers, a senior Air Force civilian, was paid by CRI while awaiting confirmation as principal deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition. After Riecher's conflict of interest was made public, he was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Fairfax County, Virginia home. [On October 14, 2007]. CRI paid Riechers a salary of over $26,000 for no work. Concurrent and CRI are both listed as tax-exempt charities. A federal grand jury is currently examining ties between CRI and Concurrent and particular Air Force officials, including those in the Air Force's office responsible for security, counter-intelligence, and special program oversight (e.g., nuclear and Operation Checkmate). CRI and Concurrent have also provided contract support to the NSA, CIA, National Reconnaissance Office, and Defense Intelligence Agency. CRI has also provided support to the federal government on managing faith-based initiatives.
The Washington Post reported that a CRI spokesperson reported that CRI had 20 employees involved in 'very specialized work/ for the Pentagon and Intelligence Community.

What occurred last summer at Minot, Barksdale, and inside the Air Force offices at the Pentagon and Cheney's White House office was the first time that a renegade chain-of-command assumed control over part of America's nuclear arsenal. Dr. Strangelove is no longer fiction, it is fact.

UPDATE: Inexplicably, the Shreveport Times, a Gannet newspaper, which publishes one edition per day, had two different headlines on its front page. A Times source revealed that this was possibly the result of the presses being stopped after the first print run and the original headline being replaced with a substitute requested by Barksdale Air Force Base public affairs officials. The source said the newspaper was likely pressured by Air Force officials to alter the headline.

The first headline in the September 6, 2007 edition was  "B-52 hauls errant nukes to BAFB." The second headline indicates the event was accidental: "B-52 unwittingly delivers nukes to BAFB."  The two different headlines were discovered in a microfiche search of the newspaper in the Bossier City, Louisiana Public Library. Other than the headlines, the content of the two articles is the same."

Our April 25, 2008 report also pointed out: "Gates ordered an outside review of the Minot incident conducted by retired former Air Force Chief of Staff General Larry Welch. Welch was hardly an impartial judge, having been part of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's favorite program, the Ballistic Missile Defense System or 'Star Wars II.' Welch led a Blue Ribbon panel that heaped praise on the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, then led by Air Force General Ronald Kadish.

The Welch Report failed to discover the breakdown in Air Force nuclear command-and-control and the existence of the rival chain. An indication of the worthlessness of the Welch Report was the discovery that in August 2006, four Minuteman nose cone nuclear fuse assemblies were 'mistakenly' shipped from Hill Air Force Base in Utah to Taiwan. The fuses had originally been shipped to Hill from F. E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming in March 2005. Gates reacted to the incident by ordering an unprecedented inventory of all nuclear weapons and nuclear material in the U.S. arsenal . . .

On April 24, 2008, as news broke of an FBI investigation into a long-time Israeli intelligence ring that penetrated the U.S. military and intelligence communities, CIA director, Air Force General Michael Hayden, revealed further 'intelligence' on the Syrian facility, said to be a joint North Korean-Syrian reactor modeled after the Yongbyon facility in North Korea. However, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and American weapons experts cast doubt on the veracity of the CIA's intelligence, including a dubious videotape said to have originated with Israeli intelligence sources. Hayden, it appears, is part of the rival Air Force chain-of-command, taking orders directly from Cheney, to prepare and incite a U.S. military conflict with Syria and Iran.

The FBI investigation of the Israeli spy ring, which included convicted US Navy spy Jonathan Pollard; accused Army spy Ben-Ami Kadish ; and possibly others who served in high positions in the George W. Bush administration is also reportedly looking at key members of the rival Air Force chain-of-command."

While working for Wynne, Wheeler helped formulate the Pentagon's cyber-war policy which ultimately resulted in the creation of the US Cyber Command in 2009. In that position, he worked with Lani Kass, the ex-Israeli Air Force major who now advises the chairman of the Joint Chiefs on policy.  Wheeler was opposed to co-locating the US Cyber Command with the National Security Agency. However, NSA director General Keith Alexander now wears both hats -- NSA director and commander of the US Cyber Command -- at his two Fort Meade, Maryland headquarters. The June 25, 2009, Washington Times  reported that Wheeler favored putting the Cyber Command headquarters in "Texas or California or Colorado or North Carolina."

Welch remains a member of the Defense Science; Ronald Kadish works for Booz Allen; Wynne is a promoter of the KC-X Air Force refueling tanker project; Stutzriem  is Directo of Plans, Policy and Strategy for the  North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado; Elder remains Commander, 8th Air Force, Air Combat Command, at Barksdale Air Force Base; Kass is the Senior Policy Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen; Ben-Ami Kadish received a $50,000 fine but no jail sentence from US Judge William Pauley III, who said prison "would serve no purpose." And now Wheeler, an adviser to Wynne on a number of issues and policy questions, has turned up dead in a Delaware landfill.

Quote
Farrall said an apparent dispute between Wheeler and a neighbor was "one facet of the investigation."

Wheeler's attorney, Bayard Marin, told CNN that his client had been involved in a lengthy legal fight with a couple building a new home across the street in a historic district of New Castle. Wheeler had adamantly opposed the new construction.

The dispute may have become contentious, but "I can't recall a confrontation," Marin said. "Everything seemed to be kept within normal bounds."

HE WAS A TOP OPERATIVE OF MITRE

IF HE WOKE UP AND WAS TRYING TO EXPOSE THOSE PSYCHOS, IT WOULD MAKE SENSE THAT THEY WOULD DISCREDIT/ASSASSINATE HIM


"Grasping the growing vulnerability of our weapon systems to Cyber intrusions, he worked tirelessly to drive the activation of Air Force Cyber Command. His visionary efforts were instrumental in the creation of the Cyber Research Center at the Air Force Institute of Technology; the first two graduates of the United States Air Force Academy to enter the Air Force Institute of Technology Cyber Master’s Program; the stand-up of the Air Force Cyber School; and an increased emphasis on Air Force recruitment efforts for officers and enlisted for Cyber careers. His seasoned experience and knowledge proved invaluable as he helped formulate advice on initiatives such as Joint Basing, Recapitalization, ROVER precision strike data for Army and Marine troops, Acquisition, and a myriad of legislative initiatives facing the Air Force."

I'm not sure he was necessarily about to talk - but that is one distinct possibility.

Indeed the smoke-bombing thing seems like some weird prank that ONLY a petulant trailer park type (read: thug)  "neighbor" might do in his own yard. It's TOTALLY inconceivable that any senior civilian last-RISOP consultant SIOP strategist  would ever dream of committing or getting away with such an obvious crime, least of all one with appearances to maintain. Moreover once again we see the same-old highly suspicious "Anthrax Murder of Bob Stevens ploy" where the Rothschild-Bush al CIAduh mobster mails similar "smoke-bombing" packages to vainly and foolishly again attack government offices to distract from the root crime and so transparently repeat this same sort of an attempt to cover their tracks. (and try to pin it on a new 'enemy')

The queer smoke-bombing appears to have been part of a counter-extortion scheme employed to coerce Wilson to give up some evidence he was keeping guarded solely for the selfish sake of his own security against them. Once his reputation was thus destroyed before him they then had to resort to more direct (torture or drug) means to elicit his production and surrender of the evidence to them, before disposing of him as well.

I have further studied his participation in the last RISOP SIOP and it had to have been during the second Bush regime transition, which was the last biennial RISOP study, before it was fully abolished/obsolete 9-10 months after 9/11, this is a senior, senior appointed advisor Joint Staff endeavor that he would not have been part of when he was younger, out snuffing gooks for them out of Saigon

9/11: A Revolution in Military Affairs
The National Reconaissance Office, Mitre Corporation, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, and Booz, Allen, & Hamilton
August 8, 2001: Booz, Allen, & Hamilton employee named head of NIMA (National Imagery and Mapping Agency - now the National Geophysical Intelligence Agency)

From Biographies: Federal Government: Civilian and Military (link no longer works)

James R. Clapper named Director of National Imagery and Mapping Agency. Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld and Director of Central Intelligence George J. Tenet jointly announced the appointment of James R. Clapper Jr. as the new director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) on August 8, 2001. Clapper, who will become the first civilian head of the agency, succeeds Army Lt. Gen. James C. King who has headed NIMA since March 1998 and will be retiring from the Army later this year. Clapper was chosen for the position owing to his grasp of intelligence matters and his knowledge of the needs of NIMA's principal users, the combat commanders. The director has more than 37 years experience in intelligence, working at all levels and phases of the field. He retired from the Air Force in September 1995 as a lieutenant general after a four-year tour as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Since his retirement, he has served success ively as executive vice president of Vredenburg, a systems acquisition services company headquartered in Reston, Va.; executive director, military intelligence for Booz, Allen & Hamilton, McLean, Va.; and recently as vice president, director of intelligence programs for SRA, International, Fairfax, Va. He was a senior member of the Downing Assessment Task Force, which investigated the terrorist bombing of Khobar Towers in June 1996. NIMA, established in October 1996, is responsible for the collection of imagery through the use of both national and commercial assets. It advises others responsible for collecting imagery using theater and tactical reconnaissance assets. NIMA produces timely imagery, imagery intelligence, and geospatial information in support of the nation's military forces, policymakers, and civil customers.

From 911 Review:
On September 19th, 2000, Govexec.com describes a "never before seen" level of cooperation between the FBI, the CIA, and the Pentagon, that is expected to be involved in "Project Trailblazer"," an initiative to develop a 21st-century "signals intelligence" system that can crack new encryption software, hard-to-tap fiber-optic cables, and cellular phone transmissions" and able "to fight terrorism", referring already to Bin Laden and his"millennium plot" ("Y2K terrorist operation").



In 2001, the Trailblazer program was developed under the order of the NRO, with sub contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and took partly place in the wing of the Pentagon, which was later officially hit by "Flight77".

Booz is a high rank "member" of military and intelligence. They're also Corporate Member of the National Military Intelligence Association.
On August 8, 2001, two days after Bush received a new PDB with a clear warning on Bin Laden; Booz, Allen, & Hamilton employee named James R. Clapper as head of NIMA (the National Imagery and Mapping Agency - the 'eyes of America').
Clapper, leads this project for the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office), which at the same time not only develops new satellite capabilities (A NRO payload launched into space on September 8, 2001), but also worked on a terror drill for Sep11th (9 AM), crashing planes into the headquarters, as later confirmed by NRO Officer John Fulton.
When BoozAllen started to work for the NRO, it was well known, that they also had been a client of Blessed Relief, the charity said to be a front for Osama Bin Laden. However, this seemed to be not a problem for the NRO.

On September 11th, BoozAllen Hamilton lost 3 employees in the Pentagon : Gerald Fisher, Terence Lynch, and Ernest Willcher. They apparently worked for the government on Trailblazer 1 (which included also another sub cover project, called "Soldier Benefits Tool").

In the same building, Scott Powell and Edmond Young, working for BTG Inc, died on the same day. In April 2001 BTG aquired RPI, which was working on exercises to respond to possible chemical or biological terrorist attacks.

Only 9 days after Sep11th, it was reason enough that BTG announced to be aquired by Titan Corporation.



It was also Titan, who provided their disinfection systems to Post Offices in October 2001, after anthrax was discovered in mailings to members of Congress and journalists.

But the Titan Connection with the department of the Pentagon, which was working on Trailblazer was older than September 2001.

Another "original NSA-plan" for "Trailblazer" was from 2 April 2001, then described as a "program to develop analytic capabilities to meet the challenge of rapidly evolving, modern telecommunications", prime contracts were awarded to Booz Allen & Hamilton, Inc. , Lockheed Martin Corporation and TRW.

Trailblazer was much more than just an advanced "spy and satellite program". Already in September 2000, SpaceNewsFeed revealed, that Trailblazer is part of the "Trans Orbital Lunar GPS Experiment".



TransOrbital's private, robotic 2001 TrailBlazer's prime mission is to return HDTV video from lunar orbit for use as commercial products. The privately held company is conducting the 2001 TrailBlazer Project as a for-profit Space Venture and will produce various video and other products.

As announced, the "2001 TrailBlazer spacecraft will not rely upon GPS data for its navigation at the moon, but instead will use established means of navigation".

It is not clear, how long before Sep 2001, Titan Corporation was connected with Trailblazer, but one public document mentioned them in March 2001. Probably Titan was back and forth involved with many other sub contractors they used, to keep in strong touch with the program.
On June 14th, 2001, Logicon TASC, a Northrop Grumman company, has won a $75 million contract with the Pentagon.

But already two months earlier, in March 2001, Logicon TASC announced it had won another "five-year, $57 million contract" (possibly the same) "with a U.S. intelligence agency to provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support for Trailblazer".
The Logicon TASC team included a long list of sub contractors, among them Veridian, e-voting specialist Electronic Data Systems Corp, SRS Technologies and Titan Systems Corp.

By now, it appears odd, that this high tech spy team around Booz, the NRO and the Pentagon, was not able to protect themselves on Sep11th. Neither an early evacuation was arranged or the "observation" of the "hijacked planes" had been recognised in time.

 

One of another Trailblazer partner, TRW and their subsidiary, Peter Peterson's Blackstone Group, had similar "problems". In October 2000, they obtained the mortgage of WTC 7, a building which then turned into a military complex, with offices on the 23rd floor by the CIA and DoD.

However, the CIA wasn't able to protect the building on Sep11th. More odd, the complete building collapsed at 5:25 PM on that day under yet unexplained reasons. NIST, asked by INN World Report in February 2004 in New York, answered, they would look into these circumstances.



The NSA originally selected one of the Pentagon's top Private Military Contractrors, SAIC-led Digital Network Intelligence (DNI) Enterprise team that includes Northrop Grumman Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., The Boeing Company , Computer Sciences Corporation (later owner of DynCorp) and SAIC wholly-owned subsidiary Telcordia Technologies to contribute to the modernization of the NSA's signals intelligence capabilities.

In October 2002, SAIC officially announced the contract award from the National Security Agency (NSA) to be the provider of the technology demonstration platform (TDP) phase of the TRAILBLAZER program. At that time, it wasn't well known for the public, that the Program was already developed since 2 years.

The myth, the Pentagon was victim of incompetence and negligence on Sep11th, does still circulate around.



Since Mid 2002, Booz Allen Hamilton (also another specialist of anti-terror drills) has ex-CIA and PNAC member James Woolsey as one of their directors, the other is Dale Watson (ex-FBIHQ), who was recently accused by many different people as part of the 9/11 Cover-up: ex-FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds or Richard Clarke but also, less implicating ex-FBI Thomas Pickard.


Titan profits enormously from their NSA connection. In November 2002, the NSA selected Titan as prime contractor "for the Enterprise Architecture and Decision Support (EADS) program having a potential value of $533 million over a 24-month base period and five options."



Meanwhile, the Trailblazer program developed into another experimental and mysterious level. In May 2004, The MITRE Corporation, working together with the DMSO (Defense Modeling and Simulation Office), describes it now as "simulations to support a specific example experiment. The example experiment was modeled on a J-6-sponsored LIVEX that was planned and conducted in parallel, and largely independently of the "Trailblazer" effort."
What follow are snips from previous research of mine:
[...]

Carl Hammond, 37, was a passenger on board the hijacked United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. He also was a physicist for Mitre Corporation, a company that peddles Global Hawk (remote piloting) technology. The strongest case has been made that Global Hawk was employed in electronically hijacking the planes in question regarding September 11. Warren Buffet heads Mitre Corp. as well as Berkshire-Hathaway and NetJets, not to mention BizJets.

[...]

The NRO (National Reconnaissance Office) demonstrated its new satellite capabilities (NRO payload launched into space on September 8, 2001) and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA - "the eyes of America") gained a new director one month prior to that fateful day. Considering all of this, one gets a pretty clear picture of where all those 'Star Wars' dollars went. James R. Clapper is the man named to head NIMA and he comes from Booz, Allen, & Hamilton which is a client for Blessed Relief, the charity said to be a front for Osama Bin Laden.

[...]

Someone wrote me: "I noticed some times ago that the company Booz had lost 3 employees in the Pentagon : Gerald Fisher, Terence Lynch, and Ernest Willcher. They had apparently to work for the government on Trailblazer 1, a system required to spy communications..

"Scott Powell and Edmond Young, members of BTG Inc, died in Pentagon too. RPI, acquired by BTG Inc in april 2001, awarded $11.2 Million Contract by Department of Justice : under the contract, RPI will support exercises to help prepare state and lo cal officials to respond to possible chemical or biological terrorist attacks... They did the job so good that BTG Inc was acquired by Titan Corp on september 20, 2001, a probable coincidence.."

A number (it hasn't been reported exactly how many but it was called 'a small group of business leaders') of CEO's from New York, including at least one from the WTC, were attending a breakfast meeting at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, Nebraska on the morning of September 11, guests of Warren Buffett (isn't he the same guy who has guaranteed that the United States will suffer a nuclear attack by terrorists?). Offutt Air Force Base is the base that Bush flew to on September 11, supposedly becau se it is the headquarters of the E-4B, the aircraft which is the "command, control and communications center to direct U.S. forces, execute emergency war orders and coordinate actions by civil authorities". He wanted to be on the scene in person, particularly as there was fear that the terrorists were in possession of the secret codes by which they could electronically impersonate Bush in giving military commands (interesting how we have heard nothing more of that story). So how much of a coincidence is it that this meeting with Warren Buffett was at the same air force base that Bush flew to (apparently Bush intended to fly directly to Offutt, but had to stop for refuelling in Louisiana)? Is it possible that Buffett's invitation to a bunch of 'important' New York City executives for a breakfast meeting at an air force base in Nebraska (just think about how weird that is!) was an attempt to save the lives of the invitees?
The following is sni pped from http://www.mitre.org/ (it may no longer be there plus - one warning: Mitre helped to develop the internet and makes software for the IRS so visit their site at your own risk):
MITRE is a not-for-profit national resource that provides systems engineering, research and development, and information technology support to the government. It operates federally funded research and development centers for the DOD, the FAA, and the IRS, with principal locations in Bedford, Massachusetts, and Northern Virginia.
[...]
MITRE is supporting DARPA and the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Information Directorate (program agent) on the Affordable Moving Surface Target Engagement (AMSTE). The AMSTE program is developing technologies to affordably engage moving surface targets such as tanks, tactical ballistic missile transporters, and small boats from long ranges and in all weather conditions.
[...]
MITRE is experimenting with the integration of advanced Internet technologies into the ISR sensor ground station. The ISR Information Service (ISRIS) Mission Oriented Investigation and Experimentation (MOIE) will develop a prototype information portal that provides ISR sensor data and ground station service accessibility to the battlespace internets: the Intelinks, the Air Force Joint Battl espace Infosphere (JBI), the Navy Network Centric Warfare, and the Army First Digital Division. In FY01, the project will demonstrate the ISRIS concept using the Global Hawk UAV platform. Global Hawk is an excellent platform for this pathfinding research since it has no established TPED support systems today, and it's multiple sensor data types Electro-Optic (EO), Infra-Red (IR), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) make it an especially rich information source.
Pathfinding research they say? Sounds oddly like traiblazing (i.e. Trailblazer).
The following is snipped from Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle Technology:
After September eleventh, UCAV technology took a big step. Although not confirmed by the Pentagon, it is reported that an RQ-1 Predator spy plane equipped with hellfire missiles flew over Afghanistan and conducted the first successful remote-controlled bombing raids in history (Bowmaster). The operators remained safely on the ground out of harms way.
[...]
Boeing, with backing from DARPA, is on the cutting edge with the development of the X-45, which is scheduled for flight test in early 2002. With an estimated range of 500 to 1,000 miles and a payload of 1,000 to 3,000 pounds, Boeing intends to increase effectiveness and survivability of manned combat aircraft by sending their UCAV in first to clear out radar, antiaircraft sights, and surface to air missile (SAM) sights. With two prototypes already complete, they are moving forward with their vision of air combat tomorrow.

Realize of course, that to leak anything but where we were at ten or more years ago with these technologies would be a violation of national security and probably prosecutable.

Linking Biological Literature, Information, and Knowledge

http://66.170.227.131/news/the_edge/spring_05/hirschman.html
Lynette Hirschman, Alex Yeh, Alex Morgan, and Marc Colosimo
May 24, 2005

The field of biology has undergone a profound revolution over the past 15 years in response to the successful sequencing of the human genome. This revolution has fostered rapid development of the biotechnology industry to support the sequencing of additional organisms.

Whereas with the human genome, the bottleneck was the actual sequencing of the genome, the current bottleneck is largely in the interpretation of the sequences. It is as if someone had finally invented a way of accurately transcribing millions of texts in an unknown script; now the challenge is to understand what these texts say. Thus molecular biology has become an information science as well as an experimental science.

To tackle the understanding of the genome, biologists have been generating reams of biomedical literature and building more and more biological databases. The literature comprises accumulated knowledge: the archival record of biological experiments, their methods, their results, and interpretation of those results. The explosion of literature makes it nearly impossible for a working biologist to keep up with developments in one field, let alone relevant work across organisms or on related genes or proteins.

Biologists have responded to the need to organize all this information by developing and maintaining specialized databases, which they make accessible to the research community. Most of these databases were originally designed by individual researchers for their own searches. However, other biologists are increasingly tapping into them to do systematic sequence searches for further processing by sophisticated programs. Once supplied with the correct data, these programs can find genes in the sequenced DNA, predict the protein folding that gives each protein its specific function, and even predict the function of new proteins. There are now hundreds of databases covering specific model organisms (e.g., fly, mouse, worm), classes of proteins, binding sites, microarray experiments, pathogens, and many other subjects.

To help deal with the challenge of managing so much information, MITRE is contributing its knowledge of information management and data mining to the biology community. For example, we're developing tools to help researchers maintain their databases effectively through text mining of the biological literature. We're also leading the way in the systematic evaluation of the state of the art for text mining of this literature.

Managing Growth

The ever-growing biological databases are becoming increasingly expensive and difficult to maintain. Each model organism database, for example, is maintained by a team of specialized biologists ("curators") who track the literature and transfer relevant new findings into appropriate database entries in a process called "data curation." Typically, these databases lag behind the literature because the curators have difficulty keeping up with the flow of information. The curators need interactive tools to:

-Help in the timely and consistent transfer of information from the literature into the databases
-Identify/prioritize/add new articles
-Identify which genes and/or proteins have experimental findings associated with them
-Associate function information for genes and proteins
-Identify which genes and/or proteins interact to regulate various functions.

Biologists rely heavily on the information in biological databases and often need to compare information among them. For this reason, databases must use the same terms to describe the same item. To represent information uniformly across different organisms, curators are increasingly making use of ontologies to provide a set of "computable" semantic categories. For example, the most widely used biological ontology, the Gene Ontology, provides three hierarchies to describe biological process, molecular function, and subcellular localization in terms of "is_a" and "has_part" relations. There are now databases for more than 15 organisms that annotate genes using the Gene Ontology.

Our main focus is on tools that will improve the currency, consistency, and completeness of biological databases. To find out what is needed, we have identified key partners to guide our research priorities and provide feedback on the use of the tools we develop. We have also involved these partners in setting up critical assessments of the state of the art in text mining technology.

When we began our efforts a few years ago, a number of groups were claiming to be able to extract information from the biological literature; however, no two groups had evaluated their systems on the same data sets, so no results were comparable. Also, none of these research systems had been applied to real applications. Thus it was impossible to tell whether text mining for biology was ready for application to biological problems—or whether more research was needed.

To assess the state of the art, we began by organizing a Challenge Cup for the Association of Computing Machinery Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Conference. The "challenge" was to create a system that was able to identify articles containing experimental evidence on specific genes and gene products. We worked with FlyBase (the Drosophila genome database) to provide sample data-sets of articles for both system training and evaluation of system performance on new ("blind") test data. The successful event attracted 18 systems from eight countries fielded by teams, most of which consisted of both biologists and computer scientists. Overall, the results were promising: the winning system was able to return documents with the relevant information 78 percent of the time. However, the technology will need further refinement before it can truly help the database curators in their work.

For our second evaluation activity, we organized BioCreAtIvE: Critical Assessment of Information Extraction for Biology, held in Spain in March 2004. Our goal was to assess the state of the art for text mining systems applied to real biological problems, focusing again on curation aids for biological databases. The assessment, in which 27 groups participated, focused on two tasks:
Extracting gene or protein names from text and converting these mentions into standardized gene identifiers for inclusion into three model organism databases.
Extracting Gene Ontology annotations from text for protein function, biological process, and localizations. (This task was put together by our collaborators at CNB-CSIC, Autonomous University of Madrid.)

For the first task, the best systems were able to extract general gene names from sentences of MEDLINE abstracts with more than 80 percent accuracy and map the gene names to unique database identifiers. These results may be good enough to provide tools to help database curators. The second task proved to be more difficult since it required finding mentions of proteins and then extracting the function or location of the protein from the information provided in the text. Systems were able to achieve only 10 to 20 percent accuracy on this more challenging task.

We are now actively exploring how to improve performance on both of these tasks. We are currently creating a generalized system to locate and normalize gene names, given a lexicon of gene names and identifiers for a particular organism. We are also working on improved information extraction for complex biological information (such as assignment of Gene Ontology codes) by providing a much richer lexicon of terms and phrases for biological functions and processes. These tools would have wide applicability beyond biology. They could be used to identify geographic names, company names, and even names of "people of interest" in running text.

In today's Information Age, the challenge is increasingly becoming not the lack of information but the excess of it. Data are most valuable when they can be easily and quickly accessed, digested, and understood. MITRE is working on the information management challenges of many of our sponsors—helping to channel the flow of information so that it reaches its intended destinations, but without flooding them.

As always It is the Banksters!

Last night on Michael Savage he took a call from a a man named Jim in New York. This man is close to the Wall Street scam with regard to naked short selling. He talks about the "largest securities fraud in world history of 42 trillion dollars" He talks about the SCC investigations of securities fraud. He also talks about topics I have no knowledge of like "CMKM diamond case" he talks about Robert A. Maheu. I don't know who he is. According to this man both the Bush and Obama administrations are withholding 3.8 trillion in payments from the CMKM diamond case. He says Mr. Wheeler was apart of this investigation. I am not dismissing any of the other leads but this has the ring of truth since the Banksters are always in the mix. This also confronts the Managed Funds Association which is up to it's eyeballs in the derivatives & naked short selling scam.
The call from Jim in New York starts at 5:55 and ends at 11:05

Delaware's lead investigators had better be talking to:

His wife - did he want that house?
His classmate and USAF boss Michael Wynne
General Buzz Moseley
General McInenery
Whoever he worked for or with at MITRE
his friend Fallows at the Atlantic

This is what that strange organization MITRE (via McClatchy) said about Wheeler's death:

The statement said Wheeler's work for Mitre consisted of "providing part-time support to outreach activities aimed at promoting discussions among government, industry, and academia on cyber defense topics." Company spokeswoman Jennifer J. Sherman declined to further explain his duties.


Makes it sound unimportant. But here is what General McInenery said to FOX in my previous post:

And I participated in a number of meetings with, when he went with MITRE, that he had convened, a group of experts. And we discussed cyber-warfare. So that's the area that really he concerns me - he was very, very knowledgeable in that, plus the very high security clearances that he had.


These are high level guys with the highest levels of classification talking about computer warfare. Not "part-time, outreach activities." And MITRE is deeply allied to the USAF - this article talks about their 50 year anniversary in Colorado Springs and and how MITRE helped build NORAD.

Other interesting facts about Wheeler's friends - McInenery is against Obama, going to so far as to back one Colonel Larkin's birther claims in a court martial case. And the previously mentioned USAF secretary Wynne, who was so eager to test experimental weapons against US citizens, he was a 23-year executive at General Dynamics, a huge defense contractor.

It's unfortunate this happened in Delaware, a state totally subservient to corporate interests. You would need a homicide detective allied with a local district attorney willing to take on the powers that be, like Jim Garrison, in order to get anywhere with this - if he was indeed killed for parapolitical reasons, and not some random mugging or fight with his neighbors. Unfortunately the victim is not that high profile as a JFK.

If the FBI takes over this investigation, they will probably bury it.

Robert Schuler at Op-Ed News offers a different possible explanation for who might have killed Wheeler, and why:

It's too early to draw definitive connections between the Boeing/EADS battle, the Alabama deaths, and the Wheeler murder. But we do know this: If EADS wins the contract, the tanker planes will be built in Mobile, Alabama. Gov. Riley has played a prominent role in trying to secure the deal for his state, while U.S. Senators Jeff Sessions and Richard Shelby have led the push in D.C.


It's an interesting article, because he describes a level of political corruption and suspicious murders in the Alabama area, related to this massive government contract, but it's mostly just speculation.

John Wheeler: SEC Investigations, Air Force UAVs, Cyber Security and a Landfill
http://www.truthistreason.net/john-wheeler-sec-investigations-air-force-uavs-cyber-security-and-a-landfill
Jan 5th, 2011 | By Kevin Hayden

On December 28th, 2010, John Wheeler III boarded a train in Washington and eventually ended up in a landfill.  Newark Police are investigating the death of John Wheeler III, but because of his work at the Pentagon, there has been some communication with the FBI, according to Newark police spokesman Lt. Mark Farrall.

Wheeler was a Pentagon official in three Presidential administrations, working for Presidents Reagan, Bush I and Bush II, and was instrumental in helping build the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  According to a USA Today article, Wheeler also worked as a lawyer on the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), helped found the Earth Conservation Corps under President George Bush I and was later CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers during Bush I′s presidency.

Hayden’s Note:

He was no mere lawyer for the SEC – He was the Assistant General Counsel, Special Counsel to Chairman, and Secretary, for the Securities and Exchange Commission from 1978-1986.  His work included major insider trading investigations.  Hmmmm.

When Wheeler was murdered, he was working as a consultant for a defense contractor named Mitre, which–according to the company website–deals in “aviation system development, defense & intelligence, federal sector modernization and homeland security.”  Mitre is now working the field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), one of the fastest growing sectors of defense contracting, where a virtual treasure trove of taxpayer dollars are being paid to private and public corporations.

Was Wheeler’s murder a random crime or was there a political or financial motivation behind the act?

Shortly before joining on as a consultant for Mitre, Wheeler served as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, Washington, D.C. from 2005-2008, when he became the Special Assistant to the Acting Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Installations, Logistics and Environment.  His mission was to carry out tasks and monitor programs in support of goals as directed, and support the Air Force Secretariat with data gathering, team organization, liaison, analysis and/or options for action.  Principal tasks included standing up Cyberspace Forces and placing Precision Strike technology and Real Time Streaming Video targeting links into the hands of groundfighters in combat.

Hayden’s Note:

Cyber-security and UAV technology? See my related Air Force story from this week: Gorgon Stare – Revolutionary Airborne Surveillance System

Wheeler received an Air Force Exceptional Civilian Service Award in 2008 that read, in part:

Grasping the growing vulnerability of our weapon systems to Cyber intrusions, he worked tirelessly to drive the activation of Air Force Cyber Command. His visionary efforts were instrumental in the creation of the Cyber Research Center at the Air Force Institute of Technology; the first of two graduates of the United States Air Force Academy to enter the Air Force Institute of Technology Cyber Master’s Program; the stand-up of the Air Force Cyber School; and an increased emphasis on Air Force recruitment efforts for officers and enlisted for Cyber careers.

Wheeler’s political and military biography suggests there may be more behind his death than some random crime, such as a botched robbery or random street murder, but it does involve theft.  Interviews with the security guard stationed at the parking garage where Wheeler was last seen reveal that Wheeler informed her that his briefcase had been stolen (and his parking ticket was in the briefcase).  Who stole it and why?  While I’m not dismissing the fact that a random street crime might have occurred in which he lost his briefcase, how did his body end up in a commercial dumpster and carted off to the landfill hours later?  And was his confused state of mind due to head trauma or having been drugged?  Neither the parking attendent nor the security guard said he had visible injuries, other than looking “disheveled.”

Might Wheeler have been preparing to blow the whistle on some impropriety?  That is a possibility suggested by Lt. Farrall’s acknowledgement of the FBI’s involvement.  Common sense dictates such suspicion even without Farrall’s acknowledgement, however, and hopefully the Newark police will pursue this angle in their investigation.

But whom would he blow the whistle on?  He was privy to a wide variety of information, ranging from defense contracts to cyber-security initiatives, UAV technology, insider trading, Wall Street and the SEC, transactions involving Boeing, the Pentagon and of course Presidents George Bush, I and II.

I agree with the above quote but I am leaning toward the Banksters because it is so sloppy and smells of low level mafia thug from New York. Throw the bum in the dump (Brooklyn accent) kind of thing. The intelligence thugs would have many other tools and ways to kill him and make it look like a accident. Frankly I am open.

John P. Wheeler was mixed up in so many things I doubt we will ever know what happened to him. Compartmentalization can be deadly I can't imagine a man with this level of intelligence wouldn't look over the wall of compartmentalization to see what the other guy is doing. Since trillions are missing I will go with the Banksters for now. This reminds me of when the whole government of Poland fell out of the sky in a plane crash and it never comes out who did for sure. I hope this doesn't end like the Polish President and his "plane crash"

Rather queer it is also that America no longer has marines or soldiers or airmen or seamen they are all now referred to as some variety of war "fighters", though we have had no "war" in well over 30 years?

Military man dumped into three-ring whodunit

The body of a decorated US Army officer was found dumped in a Delaware landfill on New Years Eve day, a few days after he expressed concern that the nation wasn't adequately prepared for cyber warfare, according to news reports following the bizarre whodunit.

Events surrounding the murder of John P. Wheeler III, who most recently worked part-time for defense contractor Mitre Corporation on cyber defense topics, read like a Tom Clancy novel. The 66-year-old worked for three Republican administrations, was special assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, served in the office of the Secretary of Defense, and penned a manual on the effectiveness of biological and chemical weapons, which urged US forces to show restraint.

The day after Christmas – five days before his body was found as it was being dumped from a trash truck into the Cherry Island Landfill in Wilmington – Wheeler sent longtime friend Richard Radez an email expressing concern that the US wasn't sufficiently prepared for “cyber warfare,” according to The Associated Press.

“This was something that had preoccupied him over the last couple of years,” Radez told the news organization.

Wheeler's focus on computer warfare, and his ties to Mitre, have already attracted conspiracy theories involving the military industrial complex, but there are plenty of other intriguing details that don't immediately fit into such a plot.

John Wheeler Was a Mitre Consultant

At 66 years old, John Wheeler ended his career as a military consultant to the Mitre corporation, as noted in his bio. The moment I saw this particular fact in the news blurbs about his death, alarms started going off. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen the Mitre Corporation as part of odd and unusual stories. In fact, most often when there is something strange going on, you’ll see mention of Mitre.

There are a few clues located throughout the various news accounts that I believe build a very strong case that I hope federal authorities are willing to follow. Police investigating the case say that there are no leads, however I strongly disagree. I would propose that the following facts build a strong case that federal agents should pursue.

-> As of 2009, John Wheeler was working almost exclusively as a consultant to the Mitre Corporation.
-> According to news reports, Wheeler was scheduled to take an Amtrak train to Wilmington on December 28th. It would be understandable to suspect there was a pre-New Year meeting with Mitre as part of his consulting work. That lead should be pursued with Mitre executives or anyone else that was recently working with Wheeler there.
-> A friend received an email from Wheeler the day after Christmas, meaning he was alive only days before that possible meeting.
-> One news report indicates that yellow police evidence tape surrounded an area in Wheeler’s house where several wooden floorboards were missing. People often hide things (such as classified materials) under floorboards.
-> One neighbor, interviewed by news reporters, reported that she was “asked not to comment.” This means someone went around and told neighbors not to talk to reporters.
-> At one point in his career, he wrote a manual on how effective biological and chemical weapons are, and that the U.S. should never use them (revealing his core belief that technology should not be militarized).

The most shocking clue of all was that longtime friend and West Point graduate Richard Radez told news reporters that he’d exchanged emails with Wheeler on Christmas, and the next day Wheeler wrote Radez an email, “expressing concern that the nation wasn’t sufficiently prepared for Cyber Warfare.”

Radez reported that, “This was something that had preoccupied him over the last couple of years.”

Interestingly, the “last couple of years,” was also how long Wheeler has been consulting with Mitre.

Mitre and Cyber Warfare

It is never easy to uncover what folks like Wheeler do for secretive organizations like Mitre, but Radez’ comments provide a significant clue. One of the largest areas of work at Mitre is Cyber Security. The Mitre Website reads:

    Although computer defenses continue to improve, today’s cyber adversaries are more skillful, more agile, and better equipped than ever. Through our Mission Assurance Against Advanced Cyber Threats initiative, we actively engage with our sponsors to reassess what cybersecurity means in light of today’s advanced threats, even redefining what “winning” means. When it comes to fighting through a coordinated, high-level attack on government systems, winning sometimes means accepting that a determined adversary may break through system defenses—but the mission must not fail.

I would ask why Wheeler clearly felt that the mission was failing? What did he know, from within the Mitre Corporation, that led him, only days before he was found murdered, to tell his closest friend that the nation isn’t “sufficiently prepared for Cyber Warfare”? Isn’t this something Federal Investigators should ask Gary Gagnon, the Corporate Director of Cyber Security at Mitre?

The Mitre Website continues:

    “In 2009, a MITRE team published new research about detecting insider threats. This work, part of a multi-year program supported by the non-profit Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection, used a breakthrough experimental design that combines the social and computer sciences. By illustrating how the behavior of malicious insiders differs from their benign counterparts, these findings offer clues for improved early detection of this type of criminal activity.”

Keep in mind that 2009 is when Wheeler became a consultant for Mitre, and his comments immediately prior to his death imply quite strongly that he was part of this new 2009 effort at Mitre.

    “By using our own extensive internal networks as a test bed, the CSOC analysts identify and analyze actual cyber intrusions, giving us insights into the techniques our nation’s adversaries use. With the results from CSOC experimentation, we improve MITRE’s cybersecurity posture and pass along well-vetted recommendations to the government.”

Given the fact that Wheeler was very likely involved in identifying and uncovering cyber intrusions within Mitre’s own “extensive internal networks,” and considering the fact that the mission of Wheeler’s work at Mitre was likely to uncover “criminal activity” on our nation’s most secure networks – it would be incompetent of federal authorities to ignore the obvious.


Could Wheeler’s work at Mitre be related to his death? Could his efforts in cyber security have led to the murder of a national hero? Isn’t this an important “lead” for federal investigators to pursue? Or is the military-industrial complex above the law?

Mr. John P. Wheeler distinguished himself by exceptionally meritorious service to the United States as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force, the Pentagon, Washington, District of Columbia, from 3 November 2005 to 20 June 2008. During this period, Mr. Wheeler's unwavering integrity, devotion to duty and steadfast leadership led to a number of successful initiatives across the Air Force.
Grasping the growing vulnerability of our weapon systems to Cyber
intrusions, he worked tirelessly to drive the activation of Air Force Cyber
Command. His visionary efforts were instrumental in the creation of the Cyber Research Center at the Air Force Institute of Technology; the first two graduates of the United States Air Force Academy to enter the Air Force Institute of Technology Cyber Master's Program; the stand-up of the Air Force Cyber School; and an increased emphasis on Air Force recruitment efforts for officers and enlisted for Cyber careers.
His seasoned experience and knowledge proved invaluable as he helped formulate advice on initiatives such as Joint Basing, Recapitalization, ROVER precision strike data for Army and Marine troops, Acquisition, and a myriad of legislative initiatives facing the Air Force.

His day-to-day interactions with the Office of the Secretary of Defense
enhanced relations and ensured streamlined timely responses.
The singularly distinctive accomplishments of Mr. Wheeler in the dedication of service to his Country reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

RAND WHITE PAPER 1997:
Information Warfare allows obstruction of Posse Comitatus

WHITE PAPER ON INFORMATION TERRORISM
1997
Brian K. Houghton
Doctoral Fellow
RAND CORPORATION


http://www.devost.net/papers/suntzu.pdf

Offensive information warfare techniques developed for military use at a state level could also be utilized to respond to information terrorism. Law enforcement agencies, in general, do not have similar offensive information warfare capabilities. For this reason a specialized and integrated counter information terrorism group is required. These highly trained information warriors would be the national security equivalent of Carnegie Mellon’s Computer Emergency Response Team, but with an offensive capability. Like a “Digital Delta Force” these Digital Integrated Response Teams (DIRTs) would work from remote computer systems and use information warfare tactics to detect, locate and counter the information terrorists. The DIRTs would be in networked remote cells inside CONUS (with one on the East and West coasts, and an additional cell in the Midwest). The DIRTs would exploit law enforcement IT-oriented assets, investigative capabilities, and intelligence bases. The DIRTs, created by Executive Order, would operate as a cell of the National Security Council and take its directives from the information terrorism counterpart to the White House “Drug Czar.”

These information warriors, comprised of members from the Joint Services, as well as Justice and Treasury Departments, would strike using digital means against computers and networks used by the information terrorists. Using an anonymous response, the U.S. government could strike at information terrorists without large display or legitimizing the terrorists, both of which would occur with a physical response. Such a response offers ultimate plausible denial. In addition, the DIRTs close integration with law enforcement agencies would provide legal guidance and accountability, and avoid a “Posse Comitatus” syndrome.

This structure would combine the investigative and jurisdictional assets of the law enforcement community with the offensive capabilities of the military. If the United States is going to enter the Information Age, we need to have policy that spans the spectrum of information-related threats to our national security, driving offensive and defensive assets that can respond symmetrically and effectively. Our offensive capabilities against peer or near-peer competitors are formidable, whether in information or conventional warfare.

Mission Assurance Moves to the Fore in Cyberspace
By Linton Wells II, SIGNAL Magazine
October 2010

Last month I expressed concern that the growing gap between online functionality and security demanded a rethinking of several key aspects of security—more focus on tagging and tracking data, rethinking resilience and robustness, clearer security policies, and a need to change people’s behavior to reflect more security awareness.

Deputy Secretary of Defense Bill Lynn has written an important article, “Defending a New Domain,” published in the September/October 2010 issue of Foreign Affairs. (http://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/66552/william-j-lynn-iii/defending-a-new-domain) The article begins with a description of a 2008 intrusion into U.S. Defense Department networks that “marked a turning point in U.S. cyberdefense strategy,” and outlines steps that the “U.S. government has begun putting in place … to defend the United States in the digital age.”

Lynn says that the strategy has five main elements: “Develop an organizational construct for training, equipping and commanding cyberdefense forces; employ layered protections with a strong core of active defenses; use military capabilities to support other departments’ efforts to secure the networks that run the United States’ critical infrastructures; build collective defenses with U.S. allies; and invest in the rapid development of additional cyberdefense capabilities.”

Collectively, these elements point beyond a focus on information assurance, or even cybersecurity, to a broader goal of mission assurance—the ability to complete a wide range of missions across a wide range of degradations. This is consistent with the strategy’s charge that “all operational forces are able to function in a degraded information environment.” The trick is how to do this.

Consider a naval analogy. A warship is not designed with the expectation that it never will be damaged. Instead, the ship has watertight compartments, fire mains and pumps, as well as both defensive and offensive weapon systems and intelligence support. And the crew trains and trains and trains—the ship must be regarded as an integrated weapon system.

This integrated approach applies in cyberspace as well, but the cyberstrategy must address some important differences from the naval analogy. Attacks will occur not just in the cyber domain, and nonmilitary activities—such as the protection of critical infrastructures—can have a profound effect on the outcome of an engagement. Lynn’s article recognizes this and provides a framework not only for implementing mission assurance but also for defining the military’s role within the broad national framework.

Clearly, many other public and private components will have to be engaged to provide a full national capability. But the strategy articulates a role for the Defense Department while the rest of the national—and international—discussion is underway. It also helps to frame the discourse in terms that are consistent with other military usage. The organization of U.S. Cyber Command with military service components—the Army Forces Cyber Command, 10th Fleet, 24th Air Force, Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command—is one example. The use of terms such as “part sensor, part sentry, part sharpshooter” to describe active defense systems is another. Some people doubtless will see this as a militarization of cyberspace. But it will be important to differentiate roles as the broader debate plays out, and the article clearly describes its focus as “the Pentagon’s cyberstrategy.”

However well formed the strategy, how it is implemented will be crucial. Several approaches exist. Since 2003, DOD Instruction 8500.2 has defined a set of mission assurance criteria, ranging from “Vital” to “Needed.” The MITRE Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton Incorporated and others have outlined ways to operationalize mission assurance that align well with the new strategy. More work remains to be done, but because this cyberstrategy probably will be subject to extended debate, there will be chances to refine the processes.

At this stage, I see three concerns.

The first is that the paper seems to assume U.S. superiority, or even dominance, in cyberspace. This assumption may not be warranted. There is no doubt that the United States has many strengths, but the extent of unknown vulnerabilities—and the degree to which key developments and activities in this sphere are beyond its control—suggests the nation should be cautious about assuming “dominance.”

A second is that the paper’s proper emphasis on developing an effective cyber corps needs to be paralleled by senior leader education. The former is essential, but decision makers and senior policy makers also must be taught. The U.S. Justice Department has a very interesting program called Advanced S&T Adjudication Resource, or ASTAR, that develops and maintains a cadre of judges who are qualified to hear technical cases from the bench. A similar project is being investigated at the National Defense University for national security professionals, and it will include a cyber component.

The third concern focuses on the need for sustained and effective private-sector engagement. Since Presidential Decision Directive 63 (Critical Infrastructure Protection) in 1998, public-private collaboration in cyber-related areas consistently has fallen short of both needs and expectations. As noted in last month’s column, commercial factors continue to undercut security in favor of functionality. The new cyberstrategy reiterates the need to do better, and these are areas to which AFCEA members can contribute directly.

Linton Wells II is the director of the Center for Technology and National Security Policy (CTNSP) in the Institute for National Security Studies and a distinguished research professor at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C. The views expressed are his own and not those of the U.S. Defense Department or of SIGNAL Magazine.

HOLY CRAP!

Holy crap is right.

Wheeler was one of THE MAIN GUYS behind all of the systems that we (especially Anti_Illuminati) have exposed in this very forum.

Now the question is:

1.Was Wheeler a sacrificial goat who "knew too much"?
2. or did some "patriot" on "the inside" who is fed up with this system take action?

I feel sorry for any journalist who investigates Wheeler's assassination because they'll end up like Danny Casolaro.

This is the BIGGEST game in town errr. I mean world.  This makes the mafia crap in Scarface or The Godfather look like a game of miniature golf or tic-tac-toe.  This is the real big boy s**t, because whoever is in charge of this GIG network will become more powerful than Alexander The Great in his heyday.

...and to think that all of this high-tech GIG crap started with PROMIS, a software program made by a Rockefeller-funded front INSLAW back in 1979!

In the 1960s, hippies protested nukes; In the 2010s hippies better start protesting the GIG.

Wilmington police warned not to go overboard on John Wheeler investigation

By SEAN O'SULLIVAN and ESTEBAN PARRA • The News Journal • January 8, 2011

WILMINGTON -- At least two Wilmington City Council members said Friday that the investigation into the death of former Pentagon official John P. Wheeler III -- though important -- should not take priority over any other homicide investigation in the city.

[...]

The cause of Wheeler's death has not been released. Jay Lynch, a spokesman for the state Department of Health and Social Services, declined to say if the body had been released, but an employee of Krienen-Griffith Funeral Home in New Castle said it had the body. Newark police declined to comment on the results of the autopsy.

Wilmington City Councilman Kevin Kelley on Friday cautioned Wilmington police not to go overboard in investigating Wheeler's death.

"I don't want any more resources dedicated to this than we do any other homicide," Kelley said, adding that about half of the city's record 27 homicides from 2010 remain unsolved.

Kelley said he wants police to find the person responsible for Wheeler's death, but not at the expense of other investigation.

Councilwoman Loretta Walsh, who heads the city's Public Safety Committee, agreed, saying Kelley's comments were "absolutely appropriate."

[...]

Wheeler's body was found about 10 a.m. on New Year's Eve in the Cherry Island Landfill when it tumbled out of a trash truck that had made rounds in the Newark area. That has led police to believe Wheeler's body was dumped in one of 10 trash bins on that truck's route.

Wheeler was an adviser to several U.S. presidents, led fundraising efforts in the 1980s to construct the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington and most recently worked part time for The MITRE Corp., which provides systems engineering and information technology services to the government.

[...]

Police have not said how Wheeler could have ended up in Newark.

On Friday, Newark police reported new surveillance video captures of another 15 minutes of Wheeler's final hours, showing him exiting doors on the 11th Street side of the Nemours building Dec. 30. Wheeler then begins to walk southeast on 11th Street, past and through the Hotel du Pont valet parking area. He continues southeast and crosses Market Street and is last seen in camera view at 8:42 p.m. walking on the west sidewalk of 11th Street, toward the East Side.

Wheeler is wearing dark pants and a dark blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood worn over his head.

His body was found about 13 hours later.

Wilmington detectives questioned cabdrivers working near the Wilmington train station, including City Cab Taxi driver Athel Scott, who said he was taken to Wilmington police headquarters Wednesday for questioning. Scott said police told him his phone number was found in Wheeler's cell phone.

"I don't know who the guy is," Scott said, adding that he passes out his business card, which has his cell-phone number on it, to many people.

Attorney Art Schulcz, a longtime friend of Wheeler and a classmate at West Point, said Wheeler's Blackberry is important because he always had it with him and was constantly e-mailing with it and wouldn't have given it up without a fight.

Yeah, don't go overboard.

Don't go out of your way.

No biggie.

Just a man with the highest security clearances tortured and thrown out in the trash.

Oh, It Was The John P. Wheeler III Who Was Involved In The Barksdale-Minot Incident Who Was Found In A Landfill!

So Wayne Madsen  hips me to this tip on John Wheeler III, whose name I didn't recognize:

John Wheeler III, special assistant to Air Force Secretary during the 2007 B-52 nuke incident at Minot, found dead in Delaware landfill. Homicide concluded. Last seen on Amtrak from DC on Dec. 28. Dealing with neocons can be hazardous to one's health. Not the first suspicious Air Force death as reported by WMR.
A bit more digging, so you have somewhere to start, brings me to Sodahead's rather levelheaded opinion :

What the "news" is not telling you is -

Wheeler was the assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force in the George W. Bush Administration. It was the Secretary of the Air Force who discovered that Richard Cheney had set up an alternative chain of command to the nuclear weapons wing of the AF. In the process, six minutemen missiles armed with nuclear warheads were secretly transported from Minot AFB to Barksdale AFB. The later is the chief staging base for the Middle East war. The alarm system for the weapons was deactivated for the transport, something that not even the base commander could authorize. The orders had to have come from above. Many point to Cheney. Before the warheads could be flown via B-52 to the Iraq/Iran theater, the Secretary of the Air Force ordered the stand-down of all B-52 flights. When he discovered the alternative chain of command to Cheney, he fired all military personnel who were involved. Cheney was said to have been livid. The Secretary ordered an investigation of what the AF press release called an oversight, and 70 enlisted men and 5 officers were removed from the Minot nuclear system.

At the same time, people involved began to die mysteriously. Wheeler is only the latest casualty.

Six (Leave from Minot) Minus Five (Arrive at Barksdale) Equals: ONE MISSING NUCLEAR BOMB Updated

(what follows, Gentle Reader, was written by one of my most trusted sources, the thorough, most excellent Mr. Chuck Simpson. Bravo: well done.)

2007 FLASHBACK: Six Nukes Leave Minot Minus Five Nukes Arrive At Barksdale Equals... Someone, operating under a special chain of command within the United States Air Force, ...stole a nuclear weapon.

Some History:

Barksdale Missile Number Six deserves far more public attention than it's received to date. Missile Number Six is potentially the major story of at least this year. Until 1968 under the Airborne Alert Program, informally called Operation Chrome Dome, the Air Force routinely kept about a dozen strategic bombers with nuclear weapons flying at all times. One predictable result was crashes and incidents. In 1968 the Department of Defense published a list of 13 serious nuclear weapons accidents that occurred between 1950 and 1968. In 1980 the list was revised to include 32 incidents through that year. Notably, the Pentagon has not acknowledged any accidents since 1980. This alone highlights the importance the Pentagon is placing on the recent transportation of nuclear weapons from North Dakota to Louisiana. Through 1968, several reported incidents involved plane crashes or malfunctions, beginning with the crash of a B-29 near Fairfield, California in August 1950. The resulting blast was felt 30 miles away.  In July 1950 a B-50 crashed near Lebanon, Ohio. The high-explosive trigger for the nuclear weapon detonated on impact. The blast was felt over 25 miles away. In May 1957 a nuclear weapon fell from the bomb bay of a B-36 near Albuquerque, New Mexico. Parachutes malfunctioned and the weapon was destroyed on impact. In October 1957 near Homestead, Florida a B-47 crashed. The nuclear weapon was burned. In March 1958 a B-47 accidentally dropped a nuclear weapon near Florence, South Carolina. The high-explosive trigger detonated on impact. In November 1958 a B-47 crashed near Abilene, Texas. The trigger of the nuclear weapon exploded upon impact. In July 1959 a C-124 crashed near Bossier City, Louisiana. Both plane and nuclear weapon were destroyed. In October 1959 a B-52 with two nuclear weapons was involved in a mid-air collision near Hardinsburg, Kentucky. One weapon partially burned. In January 1961 a B-52 broke apart in mid-air near Goldsboro, North Carolina. Two nuclear weapons were released. The parachute on one weapon malfunctioned, and contamination was spread over a wide area. The uranium core was never recovered. Daniel Ellsberg reported that detonation was a very real risk because five of six safety devices failed. In that month near Monticello, Idaho a B-52 carrying nuclear weapons exploded in mid-air. No information was made available as to the weapons. In March 1961 a B-52 with two nuclear weapons crashed near Yuba City, California. In January 1964 a B-52 carrying two nuclear weapons crashed near Cumberland, Maryland. In January 1966 a B-52 carrying four hydrogen bombs crashed after a mid-air collision near Palomares, Spain. Two weapons exploded on impact, with resulting plutonium contamination. A months-long program was undertaken to locate and extract the other two weapons from the ocean. Major policy changes were taken under consideration. In January 1968 a B-52 carrying four hydrogen weapons crashed and burned near Thule AFB in Greenland. Explosives in one bomb detonated, spreading plutonium contamination. Apparently, the other three weapons have never been accounted for. Following large public protests Denmark, which owns Greenland and prohibits nuclear weapons on or over its territory, filed a strong protest. A few days later the Secretary of Defense ordered the removal of nuclear weapons from planes. After that order was issued, all aircraft armed with nuclear

weapons were grounded but kept in a constant state of alert. In 1991 by Presidential order, nuclear weapons were removed from all aircraft. Bomber nuclear ground alerts, during which nuclear weapons are loaded onto bombers during test and training exercises, were halted. After that time, all nuclear weapons to be delivered by plane were permanently maintained in secure storage facilities.

August 30, 2007

All of which makes the transport of nuclear weapons in combat position on a combat plane so newsworthy. On August 30, for the first time since 1968, nuclear warheads in combat position were carried by an American bomber. Numerous international treaty provisions were violated in the process. That Thursday, a B-52H Stratofortress flew from Minot AFB in North Dakota to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana while carrying twelve cruise missiles. Either five or six of those missiles were armed with nuclear warheads.

Cruise Missiles

The missiles on the B-52 were AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missile units, specifically designed to be launched from wing pods of B-52H planes. A total of 460 units were manufactured by Raytheon. A total of 394 units are currently maintained by the Air Force. Apparently, 38 are to be modernized and upgraded in Fiscal Year 2008 and the other 356 are to be decommissioned pursuant to the 2002 Moscow treaty. Raytheon has publicly announced the AGM-129 missiles are to be modified to accomplish a "classified cruise missile mission". This has widely been interpreted to mean conversion to bunker-busters, most likely for use in Iran. This widely accepted explanation is being used to explain why armed cruise missiles are being flown in American airspace.

Nuclear Warheads

The AGM-129 was specifically designed to deliver a W-80 nuclear warhead. The W-80 weapon has a variable yield capability, of 5 to 150 kilotons. For comparison purposes, the bomb used on Hiroshima was 13 to 15 kilotons, or equivalent to 13,000 to 15,000 tons of TNT explosive.

News Stories and Flawed Explanations

The story of the B-52 flight was first reported by Army Times, owned by Gannett, on Wednesday September 5. Gannett relied on information provided by "anonymous officers". The story was picked up by Yahoo Wednesday morning, published by USA Today and The Washington Pos, and then quickly spread. In response, the Pentagon quickly spread an official explanation. The Air Force admitted to an inadvertent error: The intent was to transport ACMs without weapons. According to military officers, the nuclear warheads should have been removed before the missiles were mounted on the pylons under the wings of the bomber. In the words of the Pentagon:

"There was an error which occurred during a regularly scheduled transfer of weapons between two bases. The weapons were safe and remained in Air Force control and custody at all times."

For almost the first time in the history of the nation, the military has publicly and promptly admitted it "made a mistake". This in itself is truly astounding. To reinforce the military's claim that a mistake was made, a system-wide stand-down was ordered for September 14. That official explanation was quickly explained away. The mistake was made intentionally, so a "deliberate leak" of a secret operation could occur. The CIA and the Office of Counter-Terrorism in the State Department explained that Barksdale AFB is a "jumping off point" for re-supply of the Middle East. The "deliberate leak" was intended to serve as a veiled warning to Iran. This deliberately misleading explanation is evidently intended to lead the public or Iran or both to logically conclude the missiles are bound for Iran. Bluntly, State and the CIA converted a whistleblower leak by true American patriots into a deliberate leak by official Washington, to scare Iran. By this means Washington has led the public to forget or overlook the real issue. To begin, the multiple official explanations reek to high heaven. They collectively read suspiciously like flimsy cover stories concocted in hasty desperation. And no amount of pretty lipstick will be able to make the official explanations pretty.

Transportation Violations

More conflicting explanations followed. These missiles are part of a group scheduled to be decommissioned. This would explain why they were shipped out of North Dakota. But the missiles were not transported on their way to decommissioning. Missiles are normally decommissioned at Davis-Monthan AFB at Tucson. Nuclear weapons are decommissioned at the Department of Energy's Pantex facility near Amarillo, Texas, accessed through Kirkland AFB in New Mexico. And military policy requires minimization of the number of flights made with nuclear weapons aboard. So the weapons should not have been mounted on the missiles, flown to Louisiana, un-mounted and flown to New Mexico. The mode of transportation is also a major issue not defused by official explanations. Per standard operating procedures, or SOPs, both missiles and nuclear warheads are transported primarily by air, in specially modified C-130s or C-17s. Under no peacetime circumstances do military SOPs allow transport of nuclear weapons mounted in cruise missiles mounted in combat positions on combat planes. Department of Defense Directive Number 4540.5, issued on February 4, 1998, regulates logistic transportation of nuclear weapons. By delegation of Commanders of Combatant Commands, movement of nuclear weapons must be approved by commanders of major service commands. Commanders of Combat Commands or service component commanders must evaluate, authorize and approve transport modes and movement routes for nuclear weapons in their custody. The Air Force is required to maintain a Prime Nuclear Airlift Force capability to conduct the logistic transport of nuclear weapons. Under SOPs, combat planes with combat-ready nuclear weapons can only be flown on the authority of the Commander in Chief, the Joint Chiefs of Staff or the National Military Command Authority. All of these transportation regulations were flagrantly violated on August 30.

Handling Violations

Violations of regulations concerning handling of the nuclear weapons in North Dakota are worse. A sophisticated computerized tracking system is used for nuclear weapons. Multiple sign-offs are required to remove the weapons from their storage bunkers.  The AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missile was designed to carry nuclear weapons. No non-nuclear warhead is available for this missile. So the only possible error could have been loading nuclear warheads on the missiles instead of practice dummies. The practice warheads have standard blue and yellow signs declaring "Inert, non-nuclear". The nuclear warheads have at least three distinctive red warning signs. This error is therefore highly improbable, absent tampering with signage. Nuclear weapons are transported from the storage bunker to the aircraft in a caravan that routinely includes vehicles with machine guns front and rear and guards with M-16s. All steps in the process are done under the watchful eyes of armed military police. Rules require that at least two people jointly control every step of the process. If one person loses sight of the other, both are forced to the ground face-down and temporarily "placed under arrest" by observant security forces. All progress stops until inspections are made to assure the weapons weren't tampered with. All nuclear weapons are connected to sophisticated alarm systems to prevent removal or tampering. They could only be removed from the storage bunker by turning the alarm off. And the squad commander clearly would not have authority to turn off the alarm.

The Impossible Mistake

Bluntly, the mistake of loading nuclear weapons on a combat aircraft in combat-ready position is simply not possible to make. Safeguards are far too stringent and far too many people would be involved. Particularly given that the mounting was in violation of policy that's been in place without exception for almost 40 years. No discipline is expected to be meted out. The New York Times tried to imply the commanding general had been fired. Actually, the squad commander in charge of munitions crews at Minot was "relieved of duty pending an investigation". He has not been removed from his position or disciplined. The crews involved have been "temporarily decertified pending corrective actions or additional training" but have not been disciplined. No mention has been made of the wing commander. Note carefully: These actions amount to nothing at all. The wing and squad commanders are still in place and the crews can easily be re-certified.

Successful Confusion

Washington's efforts to confuse the public have been successful. Attention has shifted from the crucial issue.  This news has already become non-news. The August 14 stand-down will momentarily become news, followed by announcements of more stringent restrictions, improved safeguards and additional training. The public always has been and always will be safe. One of the major issues will be avoided: Someone in an irregular chain of Air Force command authorized loading and transport of nuclear weapons. And that would never have been done without a reason. Given the magnitude of regulatory violations involved, the reason must be extremely important. The paramount issue will be avoided, if necessary with repetition of the reassurance that the Air Force was in control at all times. The weapons were only missing during the 3.5-hour flight. At Barksdale, the missiles were considered to be unarmed items headed for modernization or the scrap heap, and of no particular importance. They were left unguarded for almost ten hours. According to one report, almost ten hours were required for airmen at Minot AFB to convince superiors that the nuclear weapons had disappeared. According to information provided to Congress, this time lapsed before airmen at Barksdale "noticed" the weapons were present. News reports will continue to overlook this fact also. Even here the focus is on time. The number of missiles and warheads issue was overlooked. Early news reports spoke of five nuclear warheads loaded onto the bomber. Apparently, this information was provided from Barksdale. That number was later updated to six weapons missing from Minot, apparently based on anonymous tips provided to Military Times by people at Minot. This information has also been forgotten.

Conclusion

Six nuclear weapons disappeared from Minot AFB in North Dakota. Five nuclear weapons were discovered at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. Which leads to my chilling conclusion: Someone, operating under a special chain of command within the United States Air Force, just stole a nuclear weapon. What next? The answer has been provided several times, most recently by CIA Director and General Michael Hayden. On September 7, dressed in full military uniform, Hayden told assembled members of the Council of Foreign Relations:

"Our analysts assess with high confidence that al-Qaida's central leadership is planning high-impact plots against the U. S. homeland. We assess with high confidence that al-Qaida is focusing on targets that would produce mass casualties, dramatic destruction and significant aftershocks."

An eye for an eye. Use of nukes will justify use of nukes. A perfect excuse to wage nuclear war against Iran. I suspect Hayden is absolutely correct, except for his mistaken identification of the "central leadership" that is planning detonation of a nuclear weapon on American soil.

The Mystery of Minot: Loose nukes and a cluster of dead airmen raise troubling questions
by Dave Lindorff

This article appeared initially in the Oct. 22, 2007 issue of American Conservative magazine.

The American Conservative has discovered that to date, more than a month after the incident, Pentagon investigators have completely ignored a peculiar cluster of six deaths during the weeks immediately preceding and following the B52 flight.

Wed, 11/21/2007—The unauthorized Aug. 29 cross-country flight of a B-52H Stratofortress armed with six nuclear-tipped AGM-29 Advanced Cruise missiles, which saw these 150-kiloton warheads go missing for 36 hours, has all the elements of two Hollywood movies. One would be a thriller about the theft from an armed weapons bunker of six nukes for some dark and murky purpose. The lead might be played by Matt Damon. The other movie would be a slapstick comedy about a bunch of bozos who couldn’t tell the difference between a nuclear weapon and a pile of dummy warheads. The lead might be played by Adam Sandler, backed by the cast of “Police Academy III.”

So far, the Pentagon, which has launched two separate investigations into the incident, seems to be assuming that it is dealing with the comedy version, saying that some incredible “mistake” led to nuclear weapons being taken inadvertently from a weapons-storage bunker, loaded into launch position on a bomber, and flown from North Dakota to Louisiana.

The American Conservative has discovered that to date, more than a month after the incident, Pentagon investigators have completely ignored a peculiar cluster of six deaths, during the weeks immediately preceding and following the flight, of personnel at the two Air Force bases involved in the incident and Air Force Commando Operations headquarters...

Thx for those last two.  I had to wash dishes tonight.  ;D

The Mystery of Minot

   It would seem that America’s nuclear weapons are kept very well guarded under lock and key.  There could never be an incident in which the United States military did not know where 6 of its nuclear warhead tipped missiles went.  It would be inconceivable that these missiles would be lost in America’s skies for a number of hours.  This certainty would not be the case if one remembers the Mystery of Minot.

On August 30, 2007 a B-52 Stratofortress loaded with six nuclear cruise missiles left Minot Air Force Base, and headed out to its destination Barksdale Air Force Base. Under United States policy nuclear missiles are not supposed to be air born. 

Even though the nuclear missiles, W80-1s, have different markings that differentiate it from other missiles they were still loaded onto the B-52.

If this was not bad enough there are the deaths of six airmen that were involved in loading the missiles onto the plane within 7 days of the incident.

1st Lt. Weston Kissel-Motorcycle Accident
Senior Airman Clint Huff-Motorcycle Accident
Linda Huff-Motorcycle Accident
Adam Barrs-Car Accident
Air Force Captain John Frueh-Suicide
Airman First Class Todd Blue- Suicide

The mysterious deaths of the airmen have been chocked up to just random car accidents.  There have also been some arguments that some of the airmen where not directly responsible for loading the nuclear missiles.  There have also been questions as to when the airmen died in relation to the incident, saying that some of them died in July and not August (not within 7 days of the incident). 

The last two deaths are of particular interest, in that they are both suicides.  What is interesting about John Frueh’s death is that he was found with a GPS and a video camera, according to the article, “strange for someone who is about to commit suicide.”

B52 Nuke: Minot Air Force Base Airman DEAD ...

Minot Air Force Base Airman Died While on Leave.
September 14th, 2007

Remember the one about the B-52 bomber that, according to legend, had six nuclear weapons loaded onto it by accident, which, of course, could not have happened—by accident—for a dozen different reasons, or more.

Airman 1st Class Todd Blue was assigned to the unit that provides security for that bomber wing at Minot Air Force base. He died while on leave in Virginia. No further details have been released.

Was he on duty when those nuclear weapons were loaded onto the B-52, “by accident”?

I expected to see many more deaths of Minot and Barksdale Air Force personnel in the wake of this incident.

The Defense secretary cites errors in caring for the nuclear arsenal. But experts see a more complicated dispute.
Julian E. Barnes and Peter Spiegel | Times Staff Writers | June 06, 2008

WASHINGTON — In an unprecedented action in a time of war, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates simultaneously fired the civilian and military leaders of the Air Force on Thursday, saying that oversight standards for the U.S. nuclear arsenal had deteriorated on their watch.

The immediate reason for the requested resignations of Gen. T. Michael “Buzz” Moseley, the Air Force chief of staff, and Air Force Secretary Michael W. Wynne was a report on the accidental shipment of nuclear triggers to Taiwan. However, the dismissals came amid a long-brewing dispute between Gates and the Air Force leadership.

LOCKHEED

Sales of nuclear materials to Taiwan are consistent with the international black market described in my root post (the CIA even gave Iran blueprints for building nuclear bombs, according to James Risen of the New York Times). If Michael W. Wynn, Wheeler’s boss, oversaw security of nukes that went missing, a litmus test of involvement would be some solid connection to Lockheed … everywhere I’ve turned so far, there was Lockheed:

Government-Industry Revolving Door

” … Before his appointment to the Pentagon, [fired AF Secretary Michael Wynn]  was involved in venture capital, and worked for General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin. Unlike the most senior civilian appointees at the Department of Defense such as Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, Wynne served in uniform in the United States military … ”

But Wynne wasn’t the only Pentagon officer with a Lockheed connection – Jack Wheeler had his own:

” … Wheeler … had called for … drastic reduction of funding to the primary contractor Lockheed-Martin. … ”

Car wreck, motorcycle wreck, mysterious death.   Two of the deaths occurred nearly two months before the missing nuke incident and one about two weeks after.   Did these Air Force personnel have any connections to the misplaced nukes?   It's starting to have the same weird pattern as the microbiologist deaths.

Minot, N.D. (AP) Authorities have identified a Minot Air Force Base man killed in a crash on the outskirts of Minot.

Base officials say 20-year-old Adam Barrs was a passenger in a vehicle that failed to negotiate a curve, hit an approach, hit a tree and started on fire late Tuesday night.

Barrs was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver is identified as 20-year-old Airman Stephen Garrett.

He was taken to Minot's Trinity Hospital in critical condition.

7/18/2007 - MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. -- A first lieutenant from Minot Air Force Base died in a motorcycle accident while on leave in Tennessee July 17.

First Lt. Weston Kissel, 28, was assigned to the 23rd Bomb Squadron as a B-52H Stratofortress pilot.

"Lt. Kissel was an outstanding officer and a superb B-52 pilot," said Lt. Col. Gerald Hounchell, 23rd BS commander. "Everyday he arrived at work with a 'can-do' attitude and a smile on his face. His leadership and friendship will be greatly missed by the 23rd Bomb Squadron Bomber Barons."

Lieutenant Kissel is a native of Tennessee. He graduated from the Air Force Academy in 2004 and arrived to Minot Air Force Base in July 2006.

The accident is under investigation.

Minot airman dies while on leave

The Associated Press
Posted : Thursday Sep 13, 2007 6:25:09 EDT

MINOT, N.D. — Minot Air Force Base officials say an airman from the base has died while on leave in Virginia.

A statement from the base says Airman 1st Class Todd Blue, 20, died Monday while visiting with family members in Wytheville, Va. The statement did not say how he died but said the incident is under investigation.

The base says Blue was a response force member assigned to the 5th Security Forces Squadron. He enlisted in the Air Force in March 2006 and was assigned to the Minot base the following August.

“He constantly stepped up to help out his fellow airmen and was a vital presence in squadron sports and volunteer programs,” Lt. Col. John Worley, the 5th Security Forces Squadron commander, said in the base statement.

STORY LINK: http://rawstory.com/08/news/2009/07/24/dhs-plans-five-day-multi-national-terrorism-prevention-exercise/

Law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the United States and abroad are preparing to go on high alert as part of a massive terrorism prevention exercise — the first of its kind here.

Beginning Monday, security officials at all levels in the United States and four other countries will scramble into action in the wake of a fictional terrorist attack somewhere outside the United States.

The scenario envisions the receipt of intelligence that a follow-up attack is planned inside the United States, forcing agencies inside and out of the country to test their coordination, intelligence and terror prevention skills.

The National Level Exercise 2009 “will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery,” the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said in a statement.

The US government regularly carries out preparedness exercises, dealing with crises ranging from natural disasters to terrorist attacks.

The 2009 exercise will include agencies in Britain, Mexico, Canada and Australia, as well as federal, regional, state, tribal, local and private sector officials throughout the United States, the Department of Homeland Security said.

“Coordinating with our partners across the United States and around the world is critical to protecting the nation from terrorists attacks,” said Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

“The National Level Exercise allows us to test our capabilities in real-time to refine and strengthen our strategies for preventing terrorist attacks.”

The exercise is expected to last for five days and is being designed to test a variety of “capabilities,” including intelligence sharing, counter-terrorism investigation, border security, infrastructure protection, security alerts and international coordination, FEMA said.

“Lessons learned from the exercise will provide valuable insights to guide future planning for securing the nation against terrorist attacks, disasters, and other emergencies,” the emergency response agency said.

They used an exercise on 911 to preoccupy the fighters from intercepting the plane. I think they will be doing the same here with this same exercise to preoccupy the federal, state, and international governments. Also, Michael Savage has predicted a Reichstag even that will allow a dictatorship to emerge in this country. See the Savage video here: http://dprogram.net/2009/07/22/video-savage-predicts-a-staged-reichstag-like-attack-very-soon/ The next 9/11 may be here within days!!! And folks it may very well be nuclear. Remember when those nukes went missing from Minot Air Force Base in North DAkota. All the people involved with the nuke ended up dead. Story link: http://www.thiscantbehappening.net/?q=node/69 . I'm sure most of you remember that, because I do. That sent alarm bells off ASAP. More telling, the government didn't even send out a massive search party for nukes nor did it investigate the "deaths" of the airmen. Some were suicides and some were car accidents.

And also Joe Biden's big mouth said that Obama will be challenged within his first 6 months in office. Well they are still within 6 months and their time is closely coming. I think this is it boys.

http://www.curiousconspiracy.com/index.php?/archives/27-Mishap-in-Minot-Mushroom-Clouds-Ahead!.html#extended (http://www.curiousconspiracy.com/index.php?/archives/27-Mishap-in-Minot-Mushroom-Clouds-Ahead!.html#extended)

In a mistake that one Congressman called "deeply disturbing" and military personnel are calling "baffling" and "impossible," on August 30th, an aging B-52H bomber flew as many as 6 cruise missiles tipped with nuclear warheads across the country from Minot, North Dakota to Barksdale, Louisiana, without Air Force knowledge.
You may have already heard about the Air Force standing down for a whole day on September 14th for safety inspections, or disciplining over 30 Airmen over the mishap. However, some events before and after this incident, improbable as it was, shed light on what may have been happening on that day.

"It is more significant than people first realized, and the more you look at it, the stranger it is," said Joseph Cirincione, director for nuclear policy at the Center for American Progress think tank and the author of a history of nuclear weapons. "These weapons -- the equivalent of 60 Hiroshimas -- were out of authorized command and control for more than a day."
Many current and former Air Force personnel say this kind of mistake with nuclear weapons is actually impossible. According to Air Force sources, it has been strict national policy to move nuclear warheads throughout the country via ground transportation since several B-52H bombers crashed carrying nuclear payloads in the 1960s. Even then, the policies and procedures surrounding the handling and transport of nuclear weapons was designed to be fool-proof: http://www.wsws.org/articles/2007/sep2007/nuke-s14.shtml. Besides the weapons leaving Minot by mistake, the Air Force admits it did not notice the missing warheads until the B-52H was in Barksdale for over 18 hours.

There is also some speculation that one of the missiles and the attached nuclear warhead are missing. According to the Navy Times, reporting from Barksdale on the day of the incident, "A B-52H bomber mistakenly loaded with five nuclear warheads flew from Minot Air Force Base, N.D, to Barksdale Air Force Base, La., on Aug. 30, resulting in an Air Force-wide investigation, according to three officers who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to discuss the incident." Notice, on the day of the flight, Barksdale thought there were only 5 missing nukes. The conjecture is that 6 left Minot, and 5 were found in Barksdale. Related to the incident is a 24 hour nation-wide Air Force stand-down and safety inspection that took place on September 14th. If speculation about the missing weapon is correct, this stand down matches standard "broken arrow" procedures where all operations would cease while all available personnel is tasked with searching for the weapon. This development raises some key questions. If one nuke is missing, would it be remotely possible to take a nuke from an airbase? The problem the the obvious answer (No way in hell!) is that that's the same answer to the question "could the Air Force mistakenly transport nuclear weapons?" The double, triple, quadruple redundancy built into the handling nuclear weapons protocol is as fool proof as humans can be. There is virtually no way this could happen by mistake.

If this isn't a mistake, what is it? There are several individuals who seemed to have an idea in late August. They signed a document called the Kennebunkport Warning: PDF LINK. Its text is as follows:

"Massive evidence has come to our attention which shows that the backers, controllers, and allies of Vice President Dick Cheney are determined to orchestrate and manufacture a new 9/11 terror incident, and/or a new Gulf of Tonkin war provocation over the coming weeks and months. Such events would be used by the Bush administration as a pretext for launching an aggressive war against Iran, quite possibly with nuclear weapons, and for imposing a regime of martial law here in the United States. We call on the House of Representatives to proceed immediately to the impeachment of Cheney, as an urgent measure for avoiding a wider and more catastrophic war. Once impeachment has begun, it will be easier for loyal and patriotic military officers to refuse illegal orders coming from the Cheney faction. We solemnly warn the people of the world that any terrorist attack with weapons of mass destruction taking place inside the United States or elsewhere in the immediate future must be considered the prima facie responsibility of the Cheney faction. We urge responsible political leaders everywhere to begin at once to inoculate the public opinion of their countries against such a threatened false flag terror operation."
(thanks to 911blogger.com) (allegations)

These signees include a distinguished former congresswomen, an Army Reserve Colonel, several high-profile Lawyers including the Former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania, and several journalists, activists and authors. What they allege is serious enough. When taken in context of the apparent mis-routing and perhaps losing of a nuclear weapon two weeks after the warning was published, we must take their warning seriously, and begin to question what has really happened in Minot and Barksdale.

How could the forces mentioned by the prescient Kennebunkers have stumbled and produced a foul up like Minot-Barksdale? One theory is that the Kennebunkport Warning and other alternative media outlets have sparked a revolt of sorts within the Armed Forces, and what we are looking at in the Minot-Barksdale situation is a flat refusal by Air Force personnel to deliver nukes into the battlefield or into the hands of the so-called "Cheney Faction."

Wayne Madsen in The People's Voice asserts that "elements of the Air Force, supported by U.S. intelligence agency personnel, successfully revealed the ultimate destination of the nuclear weapons and the mission was aborted due to internal opposition within the Air Force and U.S. Intelligence Community." (Why?)
and the report of a "Broken Spear" or lost nuclear weapons was "the result of a revolt and push back by various echelons within the Air Force and intelligence agencies against a planned U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear and conventional weapons."

I see two possibilities. One is that, through official channels, the administration attempted to move nukes into a war zone for use against Iran, perhaps saving one nuke for an American City (this is the false flag terrorism we have seen for over half of a century), and this order was thwarted, or even flat-out refused, by contentious elements within the military. The other scenario is that hidden, so-called "black," intelligence operatives within the government plotted the nuclear mishap, intending to obtain the missiles by secrecy. The nukes would then be used by these "Black" intelligence organizations as desired, possibly supplying what President Bush, VP Cheney, and Secretary of State Rice have all trumpeted for years: "the smoking gun in the form of a mushroom cloud."

No good conspiracy theory is worth its weight in flying-saucer DVDs unless you can prove a cover-up. Lets see, are there any suspicious deaths in or around Minot or Barksdale? Why, yes. Yes there are: 5 "strange" deaths so far. Ok, in actuality, the deaths are hardly proof of anything other than the simple fact that somewhere around 4000 people live in these two airbases. 5 deaths per month is nearly 1% per year, which does seem high, but may be less than the norm for any random group of 4000 people. But if the missing nukes are proof enough that something happened beyond the scope of a mistake, then the deaths are one of many factors that make the incident smell fishy.

There really is a faction within the government who want the draft, several wars of occupation at once, American Hegemony across the globe, and will use nuclear "terrorism" to get approval from the American people. They are not, however, really in control. They are fighting the control of the globalists and bankers who really run things world-wide. This so-called Cheney faction thinks increased American military dominance will stave off the looting globalists and their United Nations and Ecological laws and taxation. This won't work. American needs to retreat behind its borders and become as self-sufficient as possible. We need to return to the rule of Law, the respect of individual freedom, and State's Rights. And in the end, let the military do its job without political interference or ramifications. Let the defense department DEFEND us, not invade and occupy foreign territory.

The Biggest Political Scandal of the Past Decade: Lockheed/Sandia, Bush’s State Dept., Pakistan’s Nuclear Smuggling & the Hidden Parapolitics of the Plame Scandal
2nd January 2011



By Alex Constantine

Lockheed & the Cohen Group – Seemingly Irrelevant (But Not) Connections to the Center of the Corruption:

HOWARD DEAN, DANNY SEBRIGHT & THE AFHAN WAR

“Soon we’ll find out who is the real revolutionary, I don’t want my people to be tricked by mercenaries.” – Bob Marley

“Howard Dean wants the peace movement to believe that he is its best hope for bringing change in Washington. In television ads and presidential debates, Dean has emphasized his opposition to Bush’s decision to launch a unilateral invasion of Iraq. … Dean’s earliest statements on foreign policy in the presidential campaign were written with the help of one of the architects of the war in Afghanistan, DANNY SEBRIGHT, who held the Orwellian title of Director of the Executive Secretariat for Enduring Freedom at the Pentagon under Donald Rumsfeld. …

“When Sebright left the Pentagon in February of 2002 he went to work for his old boss, former Secretary of Defense William Cohen, at the Cohen Group, a Washingon-based consulting company. The firm uses its political connections to help companies obtain contracts with the Pentagon and with foreign governments. …”

http://www.counterpunch.org/donahue10302003.html

9/11 and the Murder of Daniel Pearl Hovered in the Background …

From the moment the towers exploded, the press has made a *willful* mess of it.

The reporting on accused 9/11 co-conspirator Omar Sheikh, a radical Islamist from England, and the Pakistani court decision to hang him for the 2002 murder of Daniel Pearl, for example …

The Guardian reported in July 2002:

‘Both the US government and Pearl’s wife have since acknowledged that Sheikh was not responsible.’”

“But the Pakistani authorities refused to release Omar Sheikh ‘for fear the evidence they produce in court might acquit Sheikh and reveal too much.’… Sheikh is also the man who, on the instructions of General Mahmoud Ahmed, the then head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), WIRED $100,000 BEFORE THE 9/11 ATTACKS TO MOHAMMED ATTA …”1

The story was more than a prejudicial shot at Pakistan by the Indian government. Agence France Press confirmed that a “highly-placed government source” maintained that the “damning link” between “the General and the transfer of funds to Atta was part of evidence which India has officially sent to the US.”

“The evidence we have supplied to the US is of a much wider range and depth than just one piece of paper linking a rogue general to some misplaced act of terrorism, the source said.” The French report was quoted liberally in the Wall Street Journal, and Mahmoud was forced to step down as a result. The French report sank from view with the resignation of Mahmoud. Of course … “

Marc Grossman

His closed conference with Mark Grossman has received little mention, a brief paragraph here and there, while attention has been slathered on others who met with the general on or about September 11, because he lacks name recognition. The ISI director’s meetings with Tenet, Armitage, killer pimp in the State Department, and other ranking administration officials lit up ThuhNet, post-9/11.

And then FBI whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds “whispered cryptically” to AntiWar.com reporter Christopher Deliso concerning Grossman’s little-known role in the Valerie Plame affair. Grossman, she said, “has not been as high profile in the press,” but “don’t overlook him – he is very important.”2

His importance is multilateral. Mark Grossman was considered a key figure by Fitzgerald in the Plame investigation, but prosecutor Fitzgerald had his own hidden conflicts of interest and was NEVER likely to make substantive progress in the case against any ranking official (I said so for years and explained why and received only blank expressions in return … while Leopold and Madsen fought me, not deliberately, with FALSE REPORTS of “pending indictments in the Plame case” – THEY never materialized. The bogus reports of Cheney’s indictment were newsworthy, designed by Richard Armitage, who ”leaked” them, to divert public attention from the true nuclear underpinnings of the Plame affair.)

A Wikipedia entry explains his appointment, and when considered in context, why the investigation had no legs: ” … Fitzgerald was named by Deputy Attorney General James B. Comey after then-Attorney General John Ashcroft recused himself from the case due to conflicts of interest. …”

Comey “appointed the U.S. Attorney in Chicago, close friend and former colleague Patrick Fitzgerald, as Special Counsel to head the CIA leak grand jury investigation. … In August 2005, Comey left the DOJ and he is now General Counsel and Senior Vice President of LOCKHEED MARTIN.”3

LOCKHEED/SANDIA

Sandia Labs

The deputy AG has been richly rewarded in fraternal blood diamonds … Why? What do Lockheed and its assets in the State Departnent have to do with nuclear smuggling? Everything. Lockheed owns Sandia’s nuclear labs and …

“Sibel Edmonds: … Some corrupt US officials of the Department of Defence and State Department facilitated the theft of US nuclear secrets (technology) from American national laboratories — Los Alamos and [Lockheed subsidiary] Sandia – to customers in several countries, including Pakistan. This procedure involved Israeli and Turkish intelligence and also Pakistan’s ISI.”

http://oraclesyndicate.twoday.net/stories/4677486

AQ Khan’s lab brokered nuclear materials  to Algeria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Myanmar, etc. The Edmonds interview continued down a labyrinth of nuclear channels:

Q: Is it correct that US officials sold nuclear secrets not only to Pakistan but also to Israel and some Arab countries?

A: Of course, they did. The main recipient of the most of the US nuclear information was always Israel, specifically after the capture, sentencing and jailing of their main spy in the USA. Jonathan Pollard [note, in the linked NYT letter, the appearance of Iran-contra's Caspar Weinberger], whose handler was a former top Israeli intelligence officer Rafi Eitan (now member of the Israeli government and former chairman of the Pensioners Party – scroll down the linked page to “Israel’s Conduct and Catastrophic Consequences for U.S.” for details of his freakish undercover function). …

THE PLAME GAME

This is the hidden key to the outing of Valerie Plame – her CIA assignment involved investigating the nuclear black market in Pakistan. High-ranking officials of the State Department and CIA were involved.  In Switzerland, the CIA is ia subject of some public interest  in a trial of cut-0uts in the AQ Khan network.

The relevant State Department officials happen to be the same ne’er-do-wells who outed Plame.

By blowing her CIA cover in the press, she was effectively neutralized by Grossman, Armitage and other Lockheed/Cohen Group/State Department stolen nuke dealers. The submerged nuclear scandal and its ties to Lockheed/Sandia/Cohen Group beneath the Plame case are transparent.

The connections are interesting enough … Mark Grossman sits on the Cohen Group board of directors – Cohen interlocks neatly with Lockheed’s board. As mentioned, James M. Loy, senior counselor at the Cohen Group, directs Lockheed, and so does Joseph W. Ralston, vice chairman the Cohen Group – a Lockheed Martin sub-contractor.

Lockheed influence on the prosecution … Lockheed influence on the defense … here, there, all over the Libby case …

It wasn’t only Ashcroft who should have recused, but also perhaps FITZGERALD – whose boss, succeeding Comey, Robert D. McCallum, was a former tobacco industry attorney, a member of the Skull & Bones fraternity at Yale, a friend of GW Bush - the moment Comey went to work for Lockheed and McCallum assumed supervision of the Plame investigation, because Grossman represents none other than Lockheed, and lobbies contractually on its behalf. The fix was in.

Lockheed’s sudden interest in Comey is an obvjous quid-pro-quo – the many interlocking scandals behind Scooter Libby – including Grossman and his meeting with the director of Pakistani ISI preceding 9/11 – were ignored under Fitzgerald’s predecessor in the case, and Fitzgerald himself - all of this tainted Libby’s prosecution severely.

The name Cheney was kept out of it, for instance. This much is apparent to anyone. But so were the names Grossman, Mahmoud Ahmed, Daniel Pearl, the Lockheed board of directors, Dick Armitage and his nuclear black marketeering enterprise, etc., etc. ….

Grossman entered the Plame picture when a memo written on June 10, 2003 turned up in the files, written by a staffer in the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR) on behalf of the undersecretary of State.

In the memo, Marc Grossman requested a briefing on INR’s opposition to the administration’s contention that Saddam Hussein had sent out feelers toward securing uranium from Niger. The Washington Post reported that he – in the role of acting secretary of state, “since Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and Deputy Secretary Richard L. Armitage were out of the country.” – wanted the letter marked “secret” preceding “a meeting at the White House where the discussion was focused on then growing criticism of Bush’s inclusion in his January State of the Union speech of the allegation that Hussein had been seeking uranium. … Grossman has refused to answer questions about the letter.”4

Michel Chossudovsky:

“Lt. General Ahmed as head of the ISI was a ‘US approved appointee.’ As head of the ISI since 1999, he was in liaison with his US counterparts in the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Pentagon. Also bear in mind that Pakistan’s ISI remained throughout the entire post Cold War era until the present, the launch-pad for CIA covert operations in the Caucasus, Central Asia and the Balkans. … The Bush Administration had sought the ‘cooperation’ of those who were directly supporting and abetting” the 9/11 plotline. Absurd, yes, “but at the same time consistent with Washington’s broader STRATEGIC and ECONOMIC objectives in Central Asia.”5

Step back in time, put yourself in the wing-tipped shoes of a Lockheed director: Is this all that is preoccupying Grossman as he gazes across his polished desk at Atta’s generous benefactor – or a facile money trail for the press and FBI to follow – a few days before the terror strikes?

What were the objectives? Were they the dictates of the State Department … OR THE COHEN/LOCKHEED GROUP? They’ve been directing the Scooter Libby song-and-dance cover story all along.

This was the backdrop of the Plame case – and a commutaion was waiting at the end of trial. When it was granted, the opportunity to expose the MANY scandals intersecting in Grossman’s office – with Cohen and Lockheed and all cabbaged safely away in the filing cabinets – was buried, a smoking (subautomatic carbine with a complex of barrels) gun.

The prosecution’s skin-deep investigation and Bush’s commutation covered up a litany of federal offenses and war crimes.

“Access, Insight and Intelligence” is the motto of the Cohen Group.

“Access,” “insight”: “In December 2000, shortly before Cohen left office, the Pentagon awarded Iridium Satellite LLC a $72 million contract, without competitive bidding, that helped save the company’s communications satellites from destruction. David R. Oliver Jr. [current director of business development and technology for Naval Systems, Northrop Grumann Electronic Sensors and Systems Division], who was a senior procurement official at the time, said that he and Cohen were the Pentagon’s principal advocates for the Iridium deal. Over the past two years, Iridium has paid the Cohen Group about $400,000 to lobby the House, Senate and Department of Defense, according to lobbying disclosure statements.”6

“Intelligence” for profit – conflict-of-Interests run rampant: “At the hub of the Cohen network, the former secretary makes frequent appearances on CNN, where he is a commentator on world affairs. He has served as a director of several corporations, some of which made arrangements to pay the Cohen Group for bringing in business, according to documents filed with the SEC.7

Is this a business meeting or war strategizing?:

“Nowadays, most of Cohen’s mornings begin with an 8:30 staff meeting in the ‘Pentagon.’ That’s the Cohen Group’s name for the conference room where the daily meeting is held. On any given day, the gathering may include Joseph W. Ralston, a retired Air Force general and former vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; James M. Loy, who finished a long public career as deputy secretary of homeland security; and Marc Grossman, a former undersecretary of state. Another prominent member of the firm, former NATO secretary general and British minister of defense George Robertson, is based overseas.

“They form an elaborate network.”8

This is the network that (Russian theory) ”suicided” Charles Reichers. Pravda:

Charles D. Reichers, USAF, Retired. Previous member of the Senior Executive Service of the AF, Principle Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition and Management. Also a master navigator and electronic warfare specialist. Found dead of apparent suicide on October 14.

However, Russian Intelligence analysts reported in Pravda (The Russian news service) that the ruling of suicide was a coverup, that Reichers was murdered because of his involvement in the Minot affair. According to the Pravda article, the incident was linked to an operation to smuggle nuclear weapons away from the US military in connection to launching a war against Iran. A principal in that operation was said to be Daniel Richard DeVos, Who runs the Commonwealth Research Institute, a non-profit organization working for the Pentagon.

Anybody remember Iran-Contra?…

Iran-Contra Redux: Deaths Related to NukeGate

There have been a number of mysterious deaths of USAF personnel shortly before and shortly after the incident.

Airman 1st Class Todd Blue. Attached to the 5th Security Forces Squadron at Minot AFB, specifically the Weapons System Security section responsible for the security of all “priority ressources” – including all the nukes. Went home on leave immediately after the incident and died on September 10th at the age of 20.

USAF Captain John Frueh. Attached to the USAF Special Operations Command. Last seen with a GPS device, camera and camcorder in a backpack. Found dead on September 8 in Washington State, last call from his cell at 12:28 p.m. on August 30, the day of the Minot incident. The Air Force refused to allow Washington state police to investigate his disappearance as a missing person case until they had completed a military investigation. Did they know he was dead?

Clint and Linda Huff. Clint Huff was attached to the 26th Operational Weather Squadron at Barksdale AFB. He and his wife were killed on their motorcycle September 15th after an SUV they were passing turned hard left into them.

First Lieutenant Weston Kissel. B-52H Stratofortress Bomber pilot. Also died in a motorcycle accident on July 17, less than two months before the Minot incident.

Adam Barrs and Stephen Garrett. Attached to the 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, responsible for loading and unloading weaponry on the B-52H Stratofortresses at Minot. They were killed in a single vehicle accident on July 3.

The Huffs, Kissel, Barrs and Garrett died before the incident. But if there was advanced planning – and any significant operation takes advanced planning – they might have been involved.

But wait! There’s more…

Charles D. Reichers, USAF, Retired …

And during the whole BS START Treaty revamp (My understanding is that the original treaty was iron clad and the new one had possible limitations to domestic/false flag uses-I would need confirmation though from someone who has studied both of them) look at what Clinton said and what others have also said...


Bill Clinton: Iran Poses 'Suitcase Nuke' Threat
http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/bill-clinton-iran-nuclear/2010/06/27/id/363202?s=al&promo_code=A2A9-1
Sunday, 27 Jun 2010 08:50 PM

The key nuclear threat that Iran poses to the world, according to former President Bill Clinton, is the risk that it may sell dangerous materials that could be used in suitcase bombs. That’s what Clinton said Sunday at the Global Economic Forum in South Africa.

See video below.

"The major danger of Iran becoming a nuclear power, the material they would have to amass to make these bombs will become the juiciest target in the world for non-state actors who would like to have suitcase nuclear bombs," Clinton said. "Will they sell it to them? Will they give it to them? Can it be stolen by some corrupt person in the supply chain?" While stressing that it is crucial to stop nuclear weapons from getting into the wrong hands, Clinton said it will be difficult to successfully intervene in Iran's affairs — the nation has been consistently resistant of international efforts to put an end to its nuclear ambitions. "We have to trot a very delicate line. We don't want to basically gut the forces of democracy and freedom by strengthening the reactionary forces in control by making a deal with them," Clinton said. "On the other hand, if we can make a deal that would be enforceable, it'd be worth doing. I'm not prepared to say we can't stop it, but I think you all need to know why it's so hard — there are no good options here." At the April Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, the 47 countries in attendance agreed to secure the world's vulnerable nuclear materials within the next four years — a non-binding goal. The purpose is to ensure nuclear materials do not slip into the hands of terrorists.

Minot AFB Clandestine Nukes 'Oddities'
By Lori Price
www.legitgov.org
Updated: 21 Dec 2010

Minot Air Force Base airman killed in shooting 21 Dec 2010 Police said an airman from the Minot Air Force Base has been killed in an off-base shooting. Police Detective Matt McLeod told KCJB radio that Steven Crawford, 19, was shot with a handgun by a fellow airman at Crawford's apartment Monday night. Crawford was taken to a Minot hospital where he died. Police said the shooting appears to be accidental.

81st Civil Support Team Conducts Exercise at Minot Air Force Base 07 May 2010 North Dakota's 81st Civil Support Team dispatched personnel and equipment though blustery winds to Minot Air Force Base May 5, to practice air load operations onto a C-17 Globemaster sent from McChord Air Force Base, Wash. While the CST is configured to assist local incident commanders in events known or suspected to involve weapons of mass destruction, it also responds regionally to augment other states. CSTs are divided into six different sectors throughout the country in order to supplement partner states should a chemical, biological or radiological event [is made to] occur.



The following section was compiled by 'The Pundit.'
Since the Minot story broke a week ago about the missing nukeclandestine operation from Minot, we have the following (for those who are paying attention):

1. All six people listed below are from Minot Airforce base
2. All were directly involved as loaders or as pilots
3. All are now dead
4. All within the last 7 days in 'accidents' [Not all of them --LRP]

Silly me, seeing more than there is to this story. I guess this is just another coincidence. But no doubt now that there will be more coincidences in the near future because as I have stated before, you need about fourteen signatures to get an armed nuke onto a B-52, and they may have told their wives and friends.

Minot AFB airman identified --The base Safety Office is 'investigating' the accident. 01 May 2010 Officials at Minot Air Force Base have identified the airman who died Thursday after being struck in the head by a training missile during routine training at the base. Senior Airman Richard Allan Gallelli Jr., 22, was a member of the 17th Munitions Squadron, said 2nd Lt. Kidron Farnell, deputy chief of Public Affairs at the Minot base. Gallelli had been in the Air Force for three years and three months.

Minot Air Force Base Airman Killed --Internal investigation underway 29 Apr 2010 The Minot Air Force Base says one of their Airmen was killed in a training exercise around midnight. In a press release officials say a male Airman from the 17th Munitions Squadron was struck in the head while at work, and died of injuries soon after. They are not releasing the name of the Airman. A spokeswoman from the Minot Air Force Base says cases like this are extremely rare and it has been at least ten years [?!?] since something like this has taken place. [*Math check.* See: Minot base crew commander found dead --Cause of death unclear 03 Feb 2009.]

Minot AFB prepares for biological and chemical attacks --Minot AFB completes 'Prairie Night 10-1' drill 12 Feb 2010 Minot Air Force Base has completed a 48-hour training exercise, dubbed Prairie Night 10-1, to ensure that members of its 5th Bomb Wing are prepared in the event of a biological or chemical attack if deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. The simulated attack began at 11:39 AM with the sound of mortars hitting. Airmen at the base climbed into their chemical gear as if the attack were real in an effort to build muscle memory for an attack in the field, making preparation for the attack second nature to them.

Prairie Knight Exercise 10-1 at Minot Air Force Base --Warbirds to participate in training scenarios that include donning of chemical gear in aftermath of airfield attack 10 Feb 2010 The 5th Bomb Wing launches a 48-hour exercise today to test the wing's capabilities in preparation for an August conventional operational readiness inspection. The two-day event, Prairie Knight 10-1, measures the wing's ability to survive and operate in a contingency environment and will include a launch of 24 B-52 combat sorties practicing to place bombs on target, said Col. Julian Tolbert, vice-wing commander at Minot Air Force Base.

Minot base crew commander found dead --Cause of death unclear 03 Feb 2009 (The Associated Press) The body of a missile combat crew commander from the Minot Air Force Base was found by police, and the cause of his death is under investigation, the Air Force says. A statement issued by the base Sunday said the body of Capt. Jonathan Bayless, 28, was found Friday night. Police did not give details but said it was in an area north of the city soccer complex, and they are awaiting autopsy results.

Minot Missile wing now in Global Strike Command 02 Dec 2009 The men and women of the 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base became part of Air Force Global Strike Command Tuesday. Global Strike Command is the Air Force's newest major command and will oversee all of its nuclear forces. The nuclear-capable assets the intercontinental ballistic missiles of Air Force Space Command come under Global Strike Command as of Tuesday.

New Minot AFB commanders vow perfection 29 Nov 2009 The sign over the main gate at Minot Air Force Base brags, ''Only the Best Come North.'' It's been a questionable claim over the past two years at the North Dakota base following a rash of nuclear-related mistakes that spurred no mushroom clouds but embarrassed the military and cost several officers their positions. The new base commander said the foul-ups - including a cross-country flight from Minot of a B-52 bomber mistakenly armed with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles - stemmed from lax attitudes in maintaining the arsenal there. ''We had a compliance problem,'' Col. Douglas Cox told The Associated Press in an interview last week at the base. [Yeah, like Cheney trying to strike Chicago with a 'missing' Minot nuke.]

Ousted Minot AFB commander Westa to retire 25 Nov 2009 Col. Joel Westa, the former 5th Bomb Wing commander fired Oct. 30, retired Monday rather than accept an assignment to Global Strike Command. Westa was chosen to turn around the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., after airmen from the wing mistakenly loaded six nuclear warheads aboard a B-52 two years ago. Maj. Gen. Floyd Carpenter, 8th Air Force commander, arrived unannounced to Minot and fired Westa after the wing failed its second nuclear inspection under Westa's command.

Minot missile, bomb wings to become part of Global Strike Command 15 Nov 2009 Members of the 91st Missile Wing at Minot Air Force Base will make history Dec. 1 when they become part of a new command Air Force Global Strike Command. The new command will oversee all of the Air Force's nuclear forces intercontinental ballistic missiles and bombers. The 5th Bomb Wing will become part of the new command on Feb. 1.

Inspections are top priority at base 04 Nov 2009 The new commander of the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot Air Force Base said his first priority is to make sure the wing is ready for inspections. Col. Douglas Cox began Monday as the top officer of the bomb wing. Cox replaced Col. Joel Westa, who, along with the commander of the base's 5th Operations Support Squadron, were relieved of duty... "Building that credibility is one of the biggest challenges that we are working on." [Yes, it would be easier to clean the Augean stables in a single day.] "We actually are inspected all the time so every day we're either inspecting ourselves or we're expecting inspectors to come from outside of Minot Air Force Base," Cox said.

New Wing Commander at Minot AFB 03 Nov 2009 There's a new wing commander at Minot Air Force base. [This happens about once a week.] Col. Douglas Cox is the new commander of the 5th bomb Wing. Col. Cox took over the wing after Col. Joel Westa was relieved of command on Friday. Westa was removed due to the Air Force losing confidence in his ability to command. Col. Cox says he is ready to lead the 5th bomb wing knowing that perfection is the standard.

Minot Air Force Base resident suffered "self-inflicted" gunshot wound 26 Oct 2009 (ND) A 21-year-old man was injured after he shot himself in the chest Monday morning, according to the Jamestown Police Department. Police said the man, a resident of Minot Air Force Base, suffered a "self-inflicted" gun shot wound in the upper left chest in the room he rented on the second floor of the Comfort Inn in Jamestown. Police were dispatched at 3:22 a.m., said Police Chief Dave Donegan.

Ousted Minot AFB commander won't retire 20 Oct 2009 Col. Christopher Ayres, the former 91st Missile Wing commander at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., who was fired on Oct. 14, will accept an assignment to Air Force Space Command headquarters at Peterson Air Force Base, Col., and not retire. The 24-year missile officer was fired after 20th Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Roger Burg "lost confidence in his ability to command." Burg also fired two maintenance commanders formerly under Ayres' command -- Col. Lyman Faith, 91st Maintenance Group commander, and Lt. Col. Andrew Healy, 91st Missile Maintenance Squadron commander. The firings followed the Oct. 9 release of an investigative report that blamed a "large insect" for an Aug. 31 crash involving a truck carrying rocket engine parts for intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Missile commander ousted at Minot Air Force Base 14 Oct 2009 The missile wing commander at North Dakota's Minot Air Force Base was relieved of his command Wednesday after a series of missteps at the unit, including two crashes of vehicles carrying missile parts in just more than a year. Col. Christopher Ayres' was not ousted for any misconduct or wrongdoing, but the Air Force said it had lost confidence in his ability to command the base's 91st Missile Wing given recent incidents.

'The investigation doesn't list what kind of bug it was.' Military says 'large insect' distracted Minot AFB missile driver --Shipment also contained two 14-gallon tanks of liquid rocket fuel 09 Oct 2009 A truck driver who lost control of a semi-trailer carrying missile parts from North Dakota's Minot Air Force Base was distracted by a "large insect" that flew in a window and landed on the driver's back, the military said in a report released Friday. The Air Force said the truck from the base's 91st Missile Wing, which overturned Aug. 31 on a gravel road in northwest North Dakota, was carrying rocket engine parts for intercontinental ballistic missiles but no nuclear material. It was the second crash of a base vehicle in just more than a year. The Air Force spent about $5.6 million last year to recover an unarmed booster rocket for an intercontinental ballistic missile after the truck carrying it overturned in July 2008.

Minot AFB Activates B52 Squadron 03 Sep 2009 This will make the most powerful base in the world, stronger. That's how the commander of a new squadron of B-52 bombers describes Minot Air Force Base. Lieutenant Colonel Kenneth Notari made the comments today as he assumed command of the newly-reactivated 69th Bomb Squadron at Minot's base. The addition of the 69th gives Minot Air Force Base two active B-52 squadrons. The commander of the 8th Air Force says having four B-52 squadrons - two in Minot and two at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana - gives him more flexibility in carrying out the bombers' mission. And it will keep the bomber active for decades.

Semi-trailer carrying Minot AFB missile parts overturns in ND --The oveturned semi-trailer carried rocket engine parts for intercontinental ballistic missiles and two 14-gallon tanks of liquid rocket fuel. --It was the second crash of an Air Force vehicle from the Minot AFB in a year. 01 Sep 2009 Military officials said Tuesday a semi-trailer carrying intercontinental ballistic missile parts from the Minot Air Force Base overturned, and it could take a week to clear the site in north central North Dakota. Air Force spokeswoman Laurie A. Arellano said the semi-trailer overturned Monday afternoon on a gravel road. The cause of the crash is under investigation, she said.

I feel so much safer already: 69th Bomb Squadron Soon Activated 29 Aug 2009 After months of anticipation and preparation, the Minot Air Force Base is ready to officially activate its newly formed 69th Bomb Squadron. The new unit will be the fourth operational B-52 squadron in the Air Force. The Minot base is home to the 23rd Bomb Squadron and Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana has two operational B-52 units.

Malmstrom nuclear weapons squadron activated 05 Aug 2009 A new squadron designed to streamline and improve the handling of nuclear weapons systems was activated Tuesday at Malmstrom Air Force Base, bringing 62 new personnel with it, according to Air Force officials. The newly activated 16th Munitions Squadron will be responsible for weapons storage area logistics operations. The tenant unit at Malmstrom is part of the 798th Munitions Maintenance Group at Minot Air Force Base, N.D.

Hold on to your hats! Report: Major growth ahead for Minot AFB 30 Jun 2009 Hundreds of new positions will be added at Minot Air Force Base in the next fiscal year, according to an Air Force report... The report calls for the addition of several dozen military and civilian personnel at the Minot base as a result of bolstering the Air Force's nuclear enterprise. As a result of strengthening the Air Force's nuclear enterprise, the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot AFB gains 10 B-52H bombers as part of B-52 force structure, according to the report. [More to 'lose.']

Minot Base Commander Says Bomb Wing Back on Track 27 May 2009 The bomb wing commander at the Minot Air Force Base says the wing "performed magnificently" in a surprise Air Force inspection just completed. Col. Joel Westa was assigned the base after a mistaken cross-country flight of nuclear warheads to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana in 2007. One of his missions was to restore the reputation of the Minot base and its 5th Bomb Wing.

Nuclear Surety Inspection begins at Minot AFB 14 May 2009 A Nuclear Surety Inspection was initiated Wednesday at Minot Air Force Base. The inspection team is led by a senior officer representative from the Air Combat Command Inspector General's office with oversight provided by representatives from the Air Force Inspection Agency and the office of the Secretary of the Air Force. This no-notice inspection is expected to conclude May 22.

Minot Air Force Base Simulates Nuclear Missile Launch 05 May 2009 Minot Air Force Base came within seconds of launching an intercontinental ballistic missile this morning. But it wasn't an emergency - it was a test of the 91st Missile Wing's ability to respond to an order from the President to launch a nuclear-tipped missile. A Minuteman Three missile from Minot's aresnal will be shipped to Vandenberg Air Force Base in California next month for an actual launch to test the equipment and people from the local base.

Cause unclear in death of Minot crew commander 05 Feb 2009 Minot police say they have found no sign of a crime in the death of a Minot Air Force Base missile crew commander, but area waiting more test results. The body of Capt. Jonathan Bayless was found late Friday in a field north of Minot. Police Capt. Al Hanson said an autopsy was performed Monday in Bismarck.

Minot base crew commander found dead --Cause of death unclear 02 Feb 2009 The body of a missile combat crew commander from the Minot Air Force Base was found by police, and the cause of his death is under investigation, the Air Force says. A statement issued by the base Sunday said the body of Capt. Jonathan Bayless, 28, was found Friday night. Police did not give details and they are awaiting autopsy results. Col. Christopher Ayres, the base's 91st Missile Wing commander, said Bayless was a training chief with the 91st Operations Support Squadron.

Minot AFB finalist for Global Strike Command 22 Jan 2009 North Dakota's congressional delegation says Minot Air Force Base is one of six finalists to be the home of the Air Force's new Global Strike Command. The military created the command to better manage the nation's nuclear arsenal. It comes after a series of embarrassing missteps, including the flight of a B-52 bomber that was mistakenly armed with six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles and flown from Minot Air Force Base to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana in August 2007.

Team to visit Minot AFB to plan for new B-52 squadron 10 Jan 2009 With Minot Air Force Base as the preferred site for a second squadron of B-52 bombers, a team will visit the base early next month to help plan for the new unit. Early last year, officials announced that a second squadron of B-52s was planned for the Minot base.

Minot launch component device 'remains missing' --Minot AFB officer to face court-martial 10 Dec 2008 A Minot Air Force Base officer accused of stealing a missile launch control device will face a court-martial, the military said. Capt. Paul Borowiecki, who was a missile combat crew member assigned to the base's 91st Missile Wing, is accused of taking the launch control device in July 2005, rather than destroying it as required when it was no longer in use. The Air Force also said Borowiecki told officials that another officer had lied in saying he destroyed a launch component. That device remains missing. That other officer, whose name has not been released, has not been charged.

Military brass to visit Minot base 30 Nov 2008 Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and General Norton Schwartz, the Air Force chief of staff, are scheduled to visit the Minot Air Force Base on Monday. Schwartz was appointed by President [sic] Bush this summer during leadership changes following the mishandling of nuclear weapons and equipment by the Air Force, including at Minot.

Plans solidify for new B-52 squadron at Minot 21 Nov 2008 The Air Force confirmed it wants to locate its fifth B-52H Stratofortress squadron at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., Air Combat Command officials announced Friday. The target date for standing up the unit is late 2009 or early 2010. North Dakota's congressional delegation, briefed on the plan prior to Friday's announcement, said the squadron would have 10 planes, raising the number of combat-ready B-52Hs at Minot to 22.

AF mum on result of no-notice nuke inspection 20 Nov 2008 The 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., completed its first no-notice nuclear surety inspection Nov. 17, but Air Force officials would not say if the wing passed. It is the first no-notice inspection the wing has completed since Strategic Air Command was disbanded, according to Air Combat Command officials. In August 2007, Barksdale airmen discovered a B-52 on their runway that had flown from Minot Air Force Base, N.D., mistakenly [!] loaded with six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles -- the first of two incidents that led to a period of heavily scrutiny of the Air Force�s nuclear enterprise.

Air Force: $5.6M to take rocket booster from ditch 03 Oct 2008 The Air Force says it spent about $5.6 million in its efforts to recover an unarmed booster rocket for an intercontinental ballistic missile from a North Dakota ditch. An Air Force truck carrying the booster for a Minuteman III overturned July 31 a few miles east of Parshall in northwest North Dakota. An Air Force statement blames "driver and safety observer error" for the accident. The truck was traveling from Minot Air Force Base to a launch facility when it crashed on the gravel road.

Air Force says officer stole launch control device 29 Sep 2008 A Minot Air Force Base officer accused of stealing a classified missile launch control device faces a hearing to determine whether he will face a court martial. The Air Force said a hearing is scheduled Tuesday at the base to evaluate evidence against Capt. Paul Borowiecki, a missile combat crew member assigned to the 91st Missile Wing.

Changes coming on nuclear training, inspection --Inspectors found several deficiencies in the nuclear security provided at the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot Air Force Base, N.D., during a Nuclear Surety Inspection the base failed last year. 20 Sep 2008 Air Force leaders announced changes to the organization, training practices and inspection process of its nuclear enterprise following the service's Nuclear Summit held on Sept. 18 at Bolling Air Force Base in Washington, D.C. Officials reviewed the recommendations made by the Task Force on Nuclear Weapons Management on Sept. 12 in a report that ripped the Air Force's current nuclear structure proposing the service realign all of its nuclear missions under Air Force Space Command and rename it Air Force Strategic Command.

Advisers: Consolidate Air Force nuke command 12 Sep 2008 The Task Force on Nuclear Weapons Management recommended the Air Force put all its nuclear missions under Air Force Space Command and call the whole thing Air Force Strategic Command. Defense Secretary Robert Gates organized the task force -- which was headed by former Defense Secretary James Schlesinger -- after axing the Air Force's top two leaders last June due to its nuclear problems. The recommendations Schlesinger announced Friday at the Pentagon also would mean that Air Combat Command would lose its nuclear bomber mission.

Air Force officers sanctioned after sleeping on nuke job 29 Aug 2008 Three ballistic missile crew members have been punished for sleeping during a sensitive task, the Air Force reported Thursday. Two first lieutenants and a captain fell asleep on July 12 while in control of a classified electronic part that contained old launch codes for intercontinental nuclear missiles. It happened during the changing out of electronic parts used to communicate with Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. Two officers are under investigation for lying about destroying classified missile components, and another for alleged sexual misconduct, the military reported.

Air Force Searches For Lost Launch Devices --Three Crew Members Removed Over Allegations of Sex Abuse and Equipment Tampering 28 Aug 2008 The Air Force says at least three ballistic missile crew members at bases in North Dakota and Montana have been taken off the job while the military investigates allegations ranging from sexual abuse to missing classified components used in underground launch control centers. The Air Force announced Thursday that an officer who earlier worked at Minot Air Force Base's 91st Space Wing notified the military in May that he and another officer had lied about destroying classified launch components in July 2005. "They were supposed to destroy them and they signed documents saying they destroyed them," said Maj. Laurie A. Arellano, an Air Force spokeswoman. Instead, she said, "they took them home." In May, one of the officers notified the Air Force of the incident and "turned his launch components over to the government." Arellano said the devices are used on equipment inside the launch control center to detect equipment tampering. One of the devices remains missing. "We only know of the whereabouts of one for sure," Arellano said.

Navy relieves commander of air recon squadron 13 Aug 2008 The commander of a Navy air reconnaissance squadron that provides the president and the defense secretary the airborne ability to command the nation's nuclear weapons has been relieved of duty, the Navy said Tuesday. Cmdr. Shawn Bentley was relieved of duty Monday by the Navy for loss of confidence in his ability to command, only three months after taking the job. Capt. Brian Costello, commander of the Navy's Strategic Communications Wing One, removed Bentley from command, said Lt. Cmdr. Charlie Brown, a spokesman for the Naval Air Forces. The primary duty of the squadron, nicknamed the "Ironman," is to provide communication with ballistic missile submarines, Brown said. It is also one of three squadrons that provides airborne communications for the president and defense secretary to command and control the nation's nuclear submarines, bombers and missile silos, according to the Wing's official Web site.

U.S. fires captain of Japan-bound nuclear warship 31 Jul 2008 The U.S. Navy said it had replaced the captain of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier scheduled for a controversial berth in Japan after blaming him for a fire on board on the warship [?]. The United States has been trying to allay fears over the planned stationing of the George Washington in Japan, the only country to have suffered nuclear attacks. Doubts about the ship's safety were renewed when a fire broke out on board in May... U.S. Naval Air Forces said in a statement it had fired commanding officer David C. Dykhoff and another officer over the incident and installed Captain J.R. Haley as the ship's new commander.

Air Force brigadier general dies of gunshot wound 28 Jul 2008 An Air Force brigadier general died of a gunshot wound that likely was self-inflicted, a spokesman said Monday. Brig. Gen. Thomas L. Tinsley, the commander at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, suffered a gunshot wound to his chest late Sunday night and was pronounced dead within a half hour, said Col. Richard Walberg, who assumed command at Elmendorf after Tinsley's death. "To the best information, it's possible it was a self-inflicted gunshot wound," Walberg said at a news conference. The weapon was likely a handgun. His previous 22-month assignment was executive officer to the Air Force chief of staff, Gen. T. Michael "Buzz" Mosely, who in June resigned under pressure in an agency shake-up. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates ousted both Mosely, the Air Force military chief, and Air Force Secretary Michael W. Wynne, the agency's civilian head, holding them accountable for failing to fully correct an erosion of nuclear-related performance standards. One concern was a cross-country flight in August 2007 of a B-52 carrying armed nuclear weapons.

US missile alert crew falls asleep on the job 25 Jul 2008 It was 9.30 in the evening. The crew of three air force members decided to rest a little and within 15 minutes they were fast asleep. They awoke several hours later. The only problem was that the room in which they were snoozing was the missile alert facility at Minot air force base in North Dakota. Directly beneath them was the underground control centre containing the keys that can launch ballistic missiles, and in their care were metal boxes containing the secret codes that allow the nuclear button to be pressed. The incident is the latest in a series of foul-ups and poor ratings for the Minot air force base. Last summer a B-52 bomber was loaded with six air-launched nuclear missiles and flown, unbeknownst to its pilots or crew, across America. [All three men fell asleep--at 9:30 PM--and slept *for hours?*]

Air Force says officers fell asleep with nuke code --July 12 incident was at Minot AFB, location of other incidents 24 Jul 2008 Three Air Force officers fell asleep [!] while in control of an electronic component that contained old launch codes for nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles, a violation of procedure, Air Force officials said Thursday. It is the fourth incident in the past year involving problems with secure handling of components of America's nuclear weapons. The incident occurred July 12, during the changing out of components used to facilitate secure communications between an underground missile-control facility and missile silos near Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, according to Col. Dewey Ford, a spokesman for the Air Force Space Command in Colorado.

Air Force declares lost B-52 crew dead 24 Jul 2008 In a solemn statement early Wednesday, 2nd Bomb Wing Commander Col. Robert Wheeler bore bitter news of tragedy to Barksdale Air Force Base and the surrounding community. The Air Force and Coast Guard have given up hope any of the six crew members of a Barksdale B-52 that crashed Sunday north of Guam are alive. Five of the lost airmen were assigned to the 2nd Bomb Wing. The only other base in the world at which B-52s are permanently assigned is Minot Air Force Base, N.D. Its 5th Wing has been peppered for years with 2nd Bomb Wing personnel, and vice-versa, and it has not been unusual over the years for a commander or a vice commander to move from the 5th Wing to the 2nd Bomb Wing.

Air Force Finds Lax Nuclear Security 02 Jul 2008 Most overseas storage sites for U.S. nuclear weapons, particularly in Europe, need substantial improvements in physical security measures and the personnel who guard the weapons, according to a newly available Air Force report. The Blue Ribbon review of nuclear security was conducted after it was discovered that a B-52 bomber had flown across the United States, from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana, with neither the pilots nor ground crews aware that six cruise missiles under one wing held real nuclear warheads.

Moseley: We Need a Failsafe to Human Error --A day after Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked for and received his resignation June 5, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. T. Michael Moseley gave this exclusive interview to [Defense News] Vago Muradian. 09 Jun 2008 Q. And that was where the problems occurred? Following the Minot incident, I would say more than 95 percent of my focus has been about getting this right, and we had a commander-directed inquiry. I commissioned Maj. Gen. [Polly] Peyer to conduct a blue ribbon review, which gave us 120 or so specific things to address. My fundamental tasking to her was, "Is there something bigger here? Is this just an isolated case of a human frailty or are there systemic bigger issues that we have to find and fix?" Q. So this was right after the Minot incident? A. I started it right after. The secretary went out there and General Welch did an overall study. So those 120, I believe, is a start at getting at where general officers should be. What is the echelon of responsibility?

Gates recommends Schwartz as next Air Force chief --Gates asks Bush to Allow Donley to Start as Air Force Secretary Without Senate Confirmation 09 Jun 2008 Defense Secretary Robert Gates recommended Monday that Gen. Norton Schwartz, a 35-year veteran with a background in Air Force special operations, be the next Air Force chief. In a sweeping shake up of the Air Force, Gates also formally sent former Air Force official Michael Donley's name to the White House to be the next secretary of the beleaguered service. Gates announced last Thursday that he was removing Air Force Gen. Michael Moseley from the chief's job and Michael Wynne as its top civilian. Gates asked Bush to designate Donley as the acting secretary effective June 21 -- a move that would allow him to begin work without waiting for Senate confirmation.

Gates seeks Air Force leadership on handling of nuclear weapons 09 Jun 2008 In his search for new leadership atop the Air Force, Defense Secretary Robert Gates is looking for a "new perspective" that will fix long-standing problems in the handling of nuclear weapons... Gates said at the time that his decision was based mainly on the damning conclusions of an internal report on the mistaken shipment to Taiwan of four Air Force fusing devices for ballistic missile nuclear warheads. And he linked the underlying causes of that slip-up to another startling incident: the North Dakota-to-Louisiana flight last August of a B-52 bomber that was mistakenly armed with six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles.

Minot Base Officials Say Airman Dies While On Leave 12 Sep 2007 The Minot Air Force Base said an airman has died while on leave in Virginia. Airman First Class Todd Blue, who was 20 years old, died Monday while visiting with family members. The statement did not say how he died. The base said Blue was a response force member assigned to the 5th Security Forces Squadron. [The primary mission of the 5th Security Forces Squadron is to 'provide 24-hour law enforcement and security services for the 5th Bomb Wing and all tenant units assigned to Minot AFB.' "Guardians of the Upper Realm" --The host wing on Minot Air Force Base, the 5th Bomb Wing operates the B-52H Stratofortress aircraft to provide global strike and combat-support capabilities to geographic commanders. B-52 Stratofortress - Mission --Air Combat Command's B-52 is a long-range, heavy bomber that can perform a variety of missions... It can carry nuclear or precision guided conventional ordnance with worldwide precision navigation capability.]

AF Secretary Visits MAFB 14 Sep 2007 The top civilian in the Air Force spent the afternoon at Minot Air Force Base today. Michael Wynne, the Secretary of the Air Force, arrived at the base about 1 PM to get a personal look at how nuclear weapons are stored, protected, and handled. His visit comes two weeks after a B-52 bomber loaded with six nuclear warheads was flown from Minot to Barksdale Air Force Base.

Staging Nukes for Iran? By Larry Johnson 05 Sep 2007 My buddy... reminded me that the only times you put weapons on a plane is when they are on alert or if you are tasked to move the weapons to a specific site... Barksdale Air Force Base is being used as a jumping off point for Middle East operations... Why would we want to preposition nuclear weapons at a base conducting Middle East operations? His final point was to observe that someone on the inside obviously leaked the info that the planes were carrying nukes. A B-52 landing at Barksdale is a non-event. A B-52 landing with nukes. That is something else. Now maybe there is an innocent explanation for this? I can't think of one. What is certain is that the pilots of this plane did not just make a last minute decision to strap on some nukes and take them for a joy ride... Did someone at Barksdale try to indirectly warn the American people that the Bush Administration is staging nukes for Iran?

The following email was sent to CLG on 19 September, anonymously.

Hello there,

I’m a Staff Sergeant in the US Air Force. I do network security, so, that’s why I’m emailing anonymously, even though I really don’t feel it’s necessary. I’m just paranoid like that, which is why I’m pretty good at my job. ;) Also, parts of what I’m putting in here are probably classified, which is the primary reason I’m sending this anonymously.
Anyway, I see a lot of people posting on Reddit about government conspiracies about nukes and things like this. It’s frustrating for me because it’s really very silly. Please, let me explain some background, to help you all understand what’s going on in the background for the Air Force:

Minot AFB is a dead-end base. It’s the abyss of the Air Force, the saying goes “Why not Minot?” They have major retainability problems there – people volunteer to go to Iraq, Korea, anywhere just to get out of there. Beside its location (middle-of-nowhere North Dakota), the base has very little real mission and spins its wheels forever in drills that all result in the end of the world since it’s a nuke base designed to fight the Cold War. But, there is no Cold War for them to fight (at least not one that Minot’s golden piece of real estate would be useful in fighting), so its people probably feel pretty worthless and tired of fighting the now non-existent Soviet Union. The base has already been re-aligned (more on that in a moment) and it’s probably going to be BRACed into a regional airport in a few decades. Ellison AFB in South Dakota has already had its closure decided.

One of the biggest problems with killing off Minot is its core mission – all of the nukes it has. Its weapons capability is moving to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana as the AF further consolidates after the Cold War and infrastructure budget cuts because of Iraq et al. Moving weapons capability to Barksdale, in real world terms, means moving the actual missiles that would deliver the nuclear warhead to Barksdale. No big deal, conventional weapons move all the time. Nuclear warheads, however, when transported for these reasons, are moved by the Department of Energy – a very time consuming, expensive, and burdensome process that someone else will have to figure out much later once they finally decide to close the base.

So, the Air Force’s solution is to move the missiles, and leave the warheads behind, to be dealt with one day when all of us are retired and don't have to worry about it. That’s what SHOULD have happened. So the mission itself was pretty normal otherwise. (It may actually be intentional to leave things this way, to prevent Congressional involvement, as whatever Senator is from ND is probably desperate to keep Minot around as long as possible; leaving the nukes, but operationally stripping the base serves both sides purposes).

The mistake, and the reason everyone now knows about this, is that the warheads weren’t removed from the missiles being moved to Barksdale. I bet the guys on the ground in Barksdale were sure as shit surprised when they cracked the payload open and saw a warhead. ;)

I know as much as I do because I work with a cross-trainee whose last base was Barksdale as a munitions specialist. He was involved in this process there; along with the various other missions Barksdale has (it’s a pretty critical base in the AF). Anyway, you would think there would be a pretty clear checklist for all of this, but apparently no one even bothered. Doing what they do day-to-day, is pretty standard operating procedure. People get lazy when they do the same thing day after day, and there’s no less than a half dozen teams who would be transferring these weapons around from storage until they’re loaded. The idea of someone dropping the ball in the AF is not exactly unusual (quite common, actually, heh), especially when 4:30 rolls around and everyone wants to go home. If the next step is to hand it off to the guys who remove the warhead, and it’s 1630 on a Friday, hell, let’s just leave it until Monday, since the mission doesn’t fly until Tuesday anyway. Monday rolls around, someone else takes over, and doesn’t know the job wasn’t finished on Friday. There SHOULD be some paper trail for that kind of thing, but then, like I said, people are lazy. Oh, and Minot usually fails its nuclear operational readiness inspections. ;) Sorry to kill your confidence in the military.

I’ve seen too much crazy stuff to believe in some massive conspiracy, there’s too many people involved. You’d have to kill like 50 people to “cover up” moving nukes to Barksdale. Plus, what would it achieve? There’s already more than enough nukes at Barksdale to blow the world up 3x over. Who needs 6 more? Seriously? Plus, more accidents occur with conventional than nukes, since nukes are computerized and designed to be super-duper safe. Conventional weapons are built by the lowest bidder. [Yikes!] I’d be more worried about a fully-loaded F16 flying around NYC after 9/11 sucking up a bird than a B52 with nukes flying around without anyone knowing it was loaded with nukes. The pilots couldn’t "secretly" be in on it and launch them, the interface wouldn’t be installed, the COMSEC material wouldn’t be available, etc. You’d have to kill half the base to hide the paper trail necessary to give the pilots the ability to launch.

Several people dying from Minot is bad, of course, but then, crazy stuff happens. Motorcycle accidents, mind you, are the #1 non-war cause of dead in the Air Force. The Captain who died wasn’t a pilot (he was Combat Weather, as evidenced by his pewter beret in the photo linked from your site). Captains are a dime a dozen, just like the Security Forces troop who died. Yes, a part of the Security Forces Squadron mission there would be do defend the nukes, but he’s not at all involved in any of the process. He stands outside the door and checks IDs. Seriously, that’s it. I have 5 cops (as they're generally called in the Air Force) I deal with every day where I work because I do computer stuff, and they have zero clue what’s happening behind the door. They spend most of the day on the phone chit chatting with friends at other security posts about the latest dorm gossip about who slept with whom.

So, to conclude, just chill out a bit about the conspiracy, it’s kinda silly. Plus, again, what would be the point? It’s not a big deal to authorize a nuke mission. After 9/11 the entire Barksdale arsenal was loaded and on the flightline ready to fly. I wouldn’t sweat 6 who someone forgot to unload. Feel free to republish, maybe it'll educate a few people.

I’m NOT anonymous, and I take issue with the anonymous "ssgt" statements. I’m a cold war vet from the US Navy, one who worked as part of an operation designed to exhaust and bankrupt the Soviet military, by constantly testing their limitations. This SSgt is a defacto shill for a propaganda machine.

1st Bullsheep. Plain and simple. IF this "SSgt" was actually just debunking a load of Steaming Holstein, none of his command would have much issue with any of his statements, especially publicly available facts such as retention rates and base activities that are noted on google.com, mil.gov, wikipedia, and many other websites worldwide. There is no need to be anonymous when you’re not releasing classified data, is there? Saying "there is not a plot" is not contrary to secure data, even if there is not a plot.

2nd 6 people dying within days of a world-record nuclear screw-up is decidedly newsworthy, and suspicious, in itself. The rate of fatalities in the military isn’t that high even in war zones.

3rd The "Decider" has already stated that he believes the USA has the right to bomb Iran, and that he will not certify that he’d refuse to use nukes. "No option is off the table" as he is fond of saying. I think that’s pretty damn clear, being as it is coming from the Commander In Chief.

4th The military reporting of these incidents is itself contrary to military secrecy, reason, and law. I suspect an altogether different agenda. I believe that this high-level press coverage of a screw up, carrying nukes on B52s, is designed to use the US Media [gasp, they’ve never done that before!] to pressure Iran to meet US demands.
a. The US military would never release to the public any real classified data, especially including data about moved or missing nukes, without authority from the White House.
b. The US media is NOT entitled to print or distribute classified information, and is NEVER brought-in as it was in this case, so rapidly or on such an elemental and critical faux paus.
c. The only logical excuse for the sudden and detail-filled news coverage of this event is that of an intentional release of data for political purposes.

5th Declaring that the US Military is lying in the media isn’t illegal provided that one does not expose any actual events or secrets, or violate the UCMJ by disobeying a direct order. All soldiers still have their civil rights. These rights are merely waived as needed for valid military purposes, as it is the job of a soldier to take abnormal risks and bear state secrets.

If it was really a secret, the anonymous sergeant would now be a traitor to the USA, just by talking about it. Thus, the implication that the letter is legit, is ALSO an implication that the letter is NOT legit. There is no need to be anonymous if it’s not a secret. QED. This is an example of a circular argument. Thus, "I" am not violating any UCMJ or Federal laws by stating that it’s bunk. You can’t cite me for a double negative: I’m stating that what doesn’t exist, doesn’t not exist. We call that the First Amendment, and whether Dumbya likes it or not, it’s still in force. I’m saying that there is no pink elephant. The missiles were moved, without any doubts, intentionally; OR The missiles were never moved and the press coverage is based on propaganda to scare Iran; OR the missiles were moved and the press coverage is based on propaganda to scare Iran. You can’t prove or disprove what the US military has done without EXTERNAL data. They’ll say whatever they want to suit themselves.

Those Very Strangely “Missing” Nukes

Update w/New Links and List of Deaths


Way back in early September I posted about a strange incident at Minot AFB in North Dakota, where 5 (now increased to 6) stockpiled nuclear warheads were taken out of storage, armed, attached to supposedly decommissioned Advanced Cruise Missiles, loaded onto the pilons of a B-52 strategic bomber, and flown to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana – a forward staging base for deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq.

My analysis at that time was that the whistleblowers who reported the incident to The Army Times – which then broke the story – were just doing their job, which had to do with some rather obvious “Saber-Rattling” by the Bush administration against Iran. In that post I noted that ex-CIA analyst Larry Johnson agreed with my analysis on his blog.

On Halloween investigative reporter Dave Lindorff posted a diary on DKos based on his article for The American Conservative [October 22 issue online]. He titled his diary The Air Force Cover-Up of that Minot-Barksdale Nuclear Missile Flight and it’s full of little tidbits of information from the Air Force’s investigation report on the incident.


There is also some excellent information in an article by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya entitled Missing Nukes: Treason of the Highest Order.

Not only must service members who handle nuclear weapons or warheads follow a very strict chain of command (with lots of backup paperwork), they must be specifically certified for that task. The weapons, particularly those in storage or scheduled for decommissioning, are marked, they are sealed (seals must be broken). they carry tracking ‘tags’ and can be found anywhere on the planet by military GPS, and direct written orders from senior military officials as well as the base commander is required before the weapons could be loaded on a plane or flown off the base.

Thus it is clear that in the case of these particular ‘missing’ nukes, highest-level orders were given, procedures double-checked and triple-checked, flight permission was granted. This is not just standard procedure, it’s REQUIRED procedure no single person can get around.

According to a number of military experts, intelligence analysts and ex-military members of high rank, there are way too many large holes in the story for it to be anything but a whitewash coverup of a deliberate act authorized by the office of the President and the entire nuclear chain of command, in clear violation of US law and international treaty.

But it gets much worse. Nazemroaya reports that there have been a number of mysterious deaths of USAF personnel shortly before and shortly after the incident…

Airman 1st Class Todd Blue. Attached to the 5th Security Forces Squadron at Minot AFB, specifically the Weapons System Security section responsible for the security of all “priority ressources” – including all the nukes. Went home on leave immediately after the incident and died on September 10th at the age of 20.

USAF Captain John Frueh. Attached to the USAF Special Operations Command. Last seen with a GPS device, camera and camcorder in a backpack. Found dead on September 8 in Washington State, last call from his cell at 12:28 p.m. on August 30, the day of the Minot incident. The Air Force refused to allow Washington state police to investigate his disappearance as a missing person case until they had completed a military investigation. Did they know he was dead?

Clint and Linda Huff. Clint Huff was attached to the 26th Operational Weather Squadron at Barksdale AFB. He and his wife were killed on their motorcycle September 15th after an SUV they were passing turned hard left into them.

First Lieutenant Weston Kissel. B-52H Stratofortress Bomber pilot. Also died in a motorcycle accident on July 17, less than two months before the Minot incident.

Adam Barrs and Stephen Garrett. Attached to the 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, responsible for loading and unloading weaponry on the B-52H Stratofortresses at Minot. They were killed in a single vehicle accident on July 3.

The Huffs, Kissel, Barrs and Garrett died before the incident. But if there was advanced planning – and any significant operation takes advanced planning – they might have been involved.

But wait! There’s more…

Charles D. Reichers, USAF, Retired. Previous member of the Senior Executive Service of the AF, Principle Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition and Management. Also a master navigator and electronic warfare specialist. Found dead of apparent suicide on October 14.

However, Russian Intelligence analysts reported in Pravda (The Russian news service) that the ruling of suicide was a coverup, that Reichers was murdered because of his involvement in the Minot affair. According to the Pravda article, the incident was linked to an operation to smuggle nuclear weapons away from the US military in connection to launching a war against Iran. A principal in that operation was said to be Daniel Richard DeVos, Who runs the Commonwealth Research Institute, a non-profit organization working for the Pentagon.

Anybody remember Iran-Contra?

General Russell Elliot Dougherty. Former commander of Strategic Air Command and director of the Joint Strategic Target Planning Staff. Reported dead of suicide on September 7.

In June of this year the command staff at Minot was rotated. Incoming officers were…

Colonel Robert D. Critchlow, transferred from the Pentagon to become commanding officer for the 91st Operations Group at Minot.

Colonel Myron L. Freeman, transferred from Japan to Minot to take over as commander of the 91st Security Forces Group, responsible for securing Minot’s nuclear arsenal.

Colonel Gregory S. Tims, appointed deputy commander of the 91st Space Wing.

Colonel Bruce Emig, transferred from Ellsworth in South Dakota to Minot to become the base commander.

Colonel Cynthia M. Lundell, transferred from NATO in Western Europe to command the 5th Maintenance Group (responsible for loading weaponry on the B-52s). Now assigned elsewhere.

Read the article for other juicy tidbits that may start putting the belligerent threats, September’s “Vigilant Shield 2008″ war games on US soil and Russia’s war games response, and all this talk of World War III into some perspective. I have doubts that Bush will allow elections in 2008, as he does not plan to leave power. I do believe he’s psychotic, thus extremely dangerous to the US and the world.

I no longer think the Minot “oops” was clever saber rattling. I think they were really trying to start a nuclear war.

Missing Nukes: Treason of the Highest Order
http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article18655.htm
By Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya


11/02/07 "Global Research" --- - According to a wide range of reports, several nuclear bombs were “lost” for 36 hours after taking off August 29/30, 2007 on a “cross-country journey” across the U.S., from U.S.A.F Base Minot in North Dakota to U.S.A.F. Base Barksdale in Louisiana. [1] Reportedly, in total there were six W80-1 nuclear warheads armed on AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles (ACMs) that were “lost.” [2] The story was first reported by the Military Times, after military servicemen leaked the story.
http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/b52_nukes.gif (http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/b52_nukes.gif)
It is also worth noting that on August 27, 2007, just days before the "lost" nukes incident, three B-52 Bombers were performing special missions under the direct authorization of General Moseley, the Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force. [3] The exercise was reported as being an aerial information and image gathering mission. The base at Minot is also home of the 91st Space Wings, a unit under the command of Air Force Space Command (AFSPC). According to official reports, the U.S. Air Force pilots did not know that they were carrying weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Once in Louisiana, they also left the nuclear weapons unsecured on the runway for several hours. [4]  U.S. Air Force Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations, Plans, and Requirements, Major-General Richard Y. Newton III commented on the incident, saying there was an “unprecedented” series of procedural errors, which revealed “an erosion of adherence to weapons-handling standards” [5] These statements are misleading. The lax security was not the result of procedural negligence within the U.S. Air Force, but rather the consequence of a deliberate tampering of these procedures. If a soldier, marine, airman, or sailor were even to be issued a rifle and rifle magazine — weaponry of a far lesser significance, danger, and cost — there is a strict signing and accountability process that involves a chain of command and paperwork. This is part of the set of military checks and balances used by all the services within the U.S. Armed Forces.

Military servicemen qualified to speak on the subject will confirm that there is a stringent nuclear weapons handling procedure. There is a rigorous, almost inflexible, chain of command in regards to the handling of nuclear weapons and not just any soldier, sailor, airman, or marine is allowed to handle nuclear weapons. Only servicemen specialized in specific handling and loading procedures, are perm certified to handle, access and load nuclear warheads.  Every service personnel that moves or even touches these weapons must sign a tracking paper and has total accountability for their movement. There is good reason for the paperwork behind moving these weapons. The military officers that order the movement of nuclear weapons, including base commanders, must also fill out paper forms. In other words, unauthorized removal of nuclear weapons would be virtually impossible to accomplish unless the chain of command were bypassed, involving, in this case, the deliberate tampering of the paperwork and tracking procedures. The strategic bombers that carried the nuclear weapons also could not fly with their loaded nuclear weaponry without the authorization of senior military officials and the base commander. The go-ahead authorization of senior military officials must be transmitted to the servicemen that upload the nuclear weapons. Without this authorization no flights can take place.  In the case of the missing nukes, orders were given and flight permission was granted. Once again, any competent and eligible U.S. Air Force member can certify that this is the standard procedure.

There are two important questions to be answered in relation to the "lost" nukes incident:
1. Who gave the order to arm the W80-1 thermonuclear warheads on the AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles (ACMs)? At what level in the military hierarchy did this order originate? How was the order transmitted down the command chain?
2. If this was not a procedural error, what was the underlying military-political objective sought by those who gave the orders?
The Impossibility of "Losing" Nuclear Weapons
As Robert Stormer, a former U.S. lieutenant-commander in the U.S. Navy, has commented: “Press reports initially cited the Air Force mistake of flying nuclear weapons over the United States in violation of Air Force standing orders and international treaties, while completely missing the more important major issues, such as how six nuclear cruise missiles got loose to begin with.” [6] Stormer also makes a key point, which is not exactly a secret: “There is a strict chain of custody for all such weapons. Nuclear weapons handling is spelled out in great detail in Air Force regulations, to the credit of that service. Every person who orders the movement of these weapons, handles them, breaks seals or moves any nuclear weapon must sign off for tracking purposes.” [7]

Stormer continues:
“Two armed munitions specialists are required to work as a team with all nuclear weapons. All individuals working with nuclear weapons must meet very strict security standards and be tested for loyalty — this is known as a ‘[Nuclear Weapons] Personnel Reliability Program [DoDD 5210 42].’ They work in restricted areas within eyeshot of one another and are reviewed constantly.”[8]

Stormer unwraps the whole Pentagon cover-up by pointing out some logical facts and military procedures. First he reveals that: “All security forces assigned [to handle and protect nuclear weapons] are authorized to use deadly force to protect the weapons from any threat [including would-be thieves].” [9] He then points out a physical reality that can not be shrugged aside: “Nor does anyone quickly move a 1-ton cruise missile — or forget about six of them, as reported by some news outlets, especially cruise missiles loaded with high explosives.”  He further explains another physical and procedural reality about nuclear weapons assembly:

“The United States also does not transport nuclear weapons meant for elimination attached to their launch vehicles under the wings of a combat aircraft. The procedure is to separate the warhead from the missile, encase the warhead and transport it by military cargo aircraft to a repository — not an operational bomber base that just happens to be the staging area for Middle Eastern operations.” [10]

This last point raises the question of what were the nuclear weapons meant for? In this context, Stomrer puts forth the following list of important questions to which he demands an answer:
1. Why, and for what ostensible purpose, were these nuclear weapons taken to Barksdale?
2. How long was it before the error was discovered?
3. How many mistakes and errors were made, and how many needed to be made, for this to happen?
4. How many and which security protocols were overlooked?
5. How many and which safety procedures were bypassed or ignored?
6. How many other nuclear command and control non-observations of procedure have there been?
7. What is Congress going to do to better oversee U.S. nuclear command and control?
8. How does this incident relate to concern for reliability of control over nuclear weapons and nuclear materials in Russia, Pakistan and elsewhere?
9. Does the Bush administration, as some news reports suggest, have plans to attack Iran with nuclear weapons?

It is a matter of perception, whether it is “clear” or “unclear”, as to why the nuclear warheads had not been removed beforehand from the missiles.  For those who have been observing these series of “unclear” events it is becoming “clear” that a criminal government is at the helm of the United States. There was no way that the six nuclear missiles could have been “mistakenly” loaded, especially when their separate warheads had to be affixed to the missiles by individuals specialized in such a momentous task. It is also being claimed that military teams in both U.S.A.F. Base Minot and U.S.A.F. Base Barksdale made major "procedural errors". What are the probabilities of this occurring simultaneously in two locations?  It is also worth noting that original reports from military sources talked about only five of the six nuclear warheads from Minot being accounted for in Barksdale.[11] Nuclear warheads are also kept in specialized storage areas or bunkers. Moreover, nuclear weapons are not being decommissioned at Barksdale.

The Role of the Nuclear Weapons Surety Program: What happened to Electronic Monitoring?
The Nuclear Weapons Surety Program is a joint program between the U.S. Department of Defence and the U.S. Department of Energy. The National Security Agency (NSA) is also involved as well as other U.S. federal government agencies. The Nuclear Weapons System Safety Program is part of this program, which involves a monitoring and safeguards regime for the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The Nuclear Weapons Security Standard falls under the Nuclear Weapons Surety Program and is in place to disallow any “unauthorized access to nuclear weapons; prevent damage or sabotage to nuclear weapons; prevent loss of custody; and prevent, to the maximum extent possible, radiological contamination caused by unauthorized acts.” Under this or these safeguards system there also exists a rigorous control of use scheme,
“Command and Control (C2)” and “Use Control”

“Use control” is a set of security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access to nuclear weapons. These measures involve weapons design features, operational procedures, security, and system safety rules. “Command and Control” or “C2” involves the Office of the President of the United States of America. C2 is an established line of command, which is tied to the White House. Without it, nuclear weapons cannot be deployed or armed as they were in U.S.A.F. Base Minot. It is these two control elements that establish the basis of authorization through which “absolute control of nuclear weapons” is maintained “at all times.”   In addition to the checks and balances in place in regards to handling nuclear weapons, the Defence Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and its partners manually and electronically inspect and monitor all U.S. nuclear weapons through the Nuclear Weapon Status Information Systems.

The Nuclear Management Information Systems “interface with each other and provide [the U.S. Department of Defence] with the ability to track the location of nuclear weapons and components from cradle-to-grave [meaning from when they are made to when they are decommissioned].” [12] The Military Times also makes an omission that exposes the official narrative as false and indicates that the event was not just a mistake: “The Defense Department uses a computerized tracking program to keep tabs on each one of its nuclear warheads, said Hans Kristensen, director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists. For the six warheads to make it onto the B-52, each one would have had to be signed out of its storage bunker and transported to the bomber.” [13] This is where the chain of command in regards to military officers falls into play. If any of the stocked inventories of nuclear weapons are moved to an authorized location they will be noticed and tracked by the DTRA and will require the relevant authorization. There is also a code system involved that is tied to the chain of command.  The fact that the incident only apparently became known to the U.S. Air Force when military personnel reported it, suggests that either the nuclear weapons were ordered to be moved or that the electronic tracking devices had been removed or tampered with. This scenario would need the involvement of individuals with expertise in military electronics or for those responsible for the monitoring of nuclear weapons to look the other way or both.

Mysterious Deaths in the United States Air Force: Whitewash and Cover-up
Several military personnel died under mysterious circumstances shortly before and after the incident. There are now questions regarding the fate of these individuals in the U.S. Air Force who could have had relationships in one way or another to the incident or possibly have been directly involved. It is also necessary to state that there is no proof that these deaths are linked to the August flight from Minot to Barksdale in question. Citizens for Legitimate Government has pointed towards the involvement of the U.S. Air Force in a cover-up and has linked several deaths of U.S. servicemen to the incident. Lori Price has also stated for Citizens for a Legitimate Government that “you need about fourteen signatures to get an armed nuke on a B-52.” Based on several news sources, including the U.S. military, we provide below a detailed review of these mysterious and untimely deaths of U.S. servicemen.
 
Todd Blue
(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/Todd%20Blue.JPG)
Airman 1st Class Todd Blue went on leave days after the nuclear weapons were “lost.” Blue died under questionable timing while on leave, visiting his family in Wytheville, Virginia at the age of 20 on September 10, 2007. He was a response force member assigned to the 5th Security Forces Squadron. What does this mean? Airman Todd Blue occupied a key position in weapons systems security at Minot. [14] At Minot U.S.A.F. Base the 5th Security Forces Squadron to which he belonged was responsible for base entry requirements and a particular section, the Weapons System Security section, was responsible for preventing the unauthorized removal of military property.  The latter is responsible for security of all priority resources, meaning the security of nuclear weapons. In other words not only did the 5th Security Forces Squadron keep eyes on what entered and left Minot, but they kept an eye on and monitored the nuclear weapons.

John Frueh
(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/Captain%20John%20Frueh.jpg)
U.S. Air Force Captain John Frueh is another serviceman who could have been indirectly connected to the “lost” nuclear weapons. He was reported as being last seen with a GPS device, camera, and camcorder being carried with him in a backpack.  Local police in Oregon and the F.B.I. seemed to be looking for him for days. His family also felt that something bad had happened to him. On September 8, 2007 Captain Frueh was found dead in Washington State, near his abandoned rental car, after the Portland Police Department contacted the Skamania County Sheriff’s Officer. [15] The last time he spoke with his family was August 30, 2007. He had arrived from Florida to attend a wedding that he never showed up at. The Oregonian reported that “Authorities in Portland found no activity on his credit or bank cards since [Frueh] was last seen (...) [and that] the last call from his cell phone was made at 12:28 p.m. [August 30, 2007] from Mill Plain Boulevard and Interstate 205 in Vancouver [Washington State].” [16]

His background was in meteorology and the study of the atmosphere and weather. He was also reported to be a U.S. Air Force pararescue officer. [17] He was also a major-select candidate, which means he was selected for a promotion as a U.S. Air Force major, but was not officially promoted.  Captain Frueh belonged to the U.S.A.F. Special Operations Command. U.S.A.F. Special Operations Command has its headquarters in Hurlburt Field, Florida and is one of nine major Air Force commands. It is also the U.S. Air Force’s component of U.S. Special Operations Command, a unified command located at MacDill Air Force Base, which is also in Florida. The force provides special operations forces for worldwide deployment and assignment to regional unified commands, such as CENTCOM. Its missions include conduct of global special operations. These operations — and this is where careful attention should be paid — range from “precision application of firepower, such as nuclear weapons,” to infiltration, exfiltration (the removal of “devices,” supplies, spies, special agents, or units from enemy territory), re-supply and refuelling of special operational elements. In Captain Frueh’s case his death is questionable too. The U.S. Air Force would not let a missing persons’ investigation go forward by the police without conducting its own investigation. Usually the different service branches of the U.S. military would investigate for missing servicemen, to see if these individuals are Absent Without Authorized Leave (AWAL) or have deserted, before an individual’s case is handed over to the police.

Clint Huff, Linda Huff, and Weston Kissel
Another military weatherman, along with his wife, also died after August 30, 2007. Senior Airman Clint Huff, belonging to the 26th Operational Weather Squadron and his wife Linda Huff died in a motorcycle accident on September 15, 2007. [18] The husband and wife fatality happened on Shreveport-Blanchard Highway, near U.S.A.F. Base Barksdale, when according to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Officer a Pontiac Aztec, a medium-sized SUV, initiated a left turn at the same time that the couple attempted to pass on a no passing zone and collided. [19] First-Lieutenant Weston Kissel, a B-52H Stratofortress Bomber pilot, also died in a reported Tennessee motorcycle accident. This was while he was on leave in, less than two months from the nuclear B-52 flights, on July 17, 2007. [20] His death came after another single-vehicle accident by another Minot serviceman, Senior Airman Adam Barrs. [21]

Adam Barrs and Stephen Garrett
(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/Senior%20Airman%20Adam%20Barrs.jpg)(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/1st%20Lt.%20Weston%20Kissel.jpg)
Senior Airman Barrs died as a passenger in a vehicle being driven by Airman 1st Class Stephen Garrett, also from Minot. Garrett, also belongs to the 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron.  The death of Barrs was reported as being part of a single-vehicle car accident. Associated Press reports state that “[Minot] Base officials say 20-year-old Barrs was a passenger in a vehicle that failed to negotiate a curve, hit an approach, hit a tree and started on fire late Tuesday [July 3, 2007] night.” [22] Barrs was pronounced dead on the scene of the accident, while Garrett was taken the hospital with no updates released by the U.S. Air Force. Adam Barrs also belonged to the 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, where he was responsible for the maintenance and securing of the electronic communicational and navigation mission systems aboard the B-52H Stratofortresses on base. The 5th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron is also one of the units that are responsible for loading and unloading weaponry onto the B-52H Stratofortresses. The deaths of Kissel and Barrs could be dismissed as irrelevant because they occurred prior to the incident. However, Barrs and Kissel could have been in one way or another connected to the advanced planning of the special operation, prior to the incident (special operations are not planned in a few days and may take months and even longer).  There is, of course, no proof and only an independent investigation will be able to reveal whether these deaths are connected to the incident.  If there was an internal and secretive operation bypassing most military personnel, a few men in key positions would have to have been involved over a period of time prior to the August 29/30, 2007 flight. Senior Airman Barrs, due to his expertise in communication and navigational systems, could potentially have been involved in the preparations that would have allowed the nuclear weapons to escape detection by military surveillance and be ready for takeoff.

Reprimands, Replacements and Reassignments  in the U.S.A.F. Chain of Command
Senior officers, including three colonels and a lieutenant-colonel, are among seventy personnel that will reportedly be disciplined for negligence and for allowing a B-52H Stratofortress Bomber to fly across the U.S. carrying six nuclear-armed cruise missiles that should never have been loaded under its wings. [23] According to the Military Times, George W. Bush Jr. had been swiftly informed. This is a lockstep procedure. This illustrates the importance tied to the authorization needed for handling nuclear weapons. This is part of a two-way process in regards to authorization from the White House. The commander of the 5th Munitions Squadron and the commander of the 5th Bomb Wing, Colonel Bruce Emig, have been replaced along with a series of other senior officers. This implies that the U.S. Air Force chain of command is directly involved in this event. None of these senior officers have been authorized to speak or make statements, according to U.S. military sources. Will any of these officers receive lucrative departure packages? Have they been reassigned?  More generally, the nature of the reprimands directed against senior officers involved has not been fully disclosed.  The “memory” of the incident is being erased through a reorganization of the ranks and a purge at U.S.A.F. Base Minot. The streamlining of the chain of command as well as the mysterious deaths of personnel who could have been involved in the incident, raise a series of far-reaching questions.  There are several important issues regarding the senior officers’ chain of command at Minot, which will be addressed in this article. Once again, the most important questions in regards to the missing nukes are: Who gave the orders and authorization for the operation and what where the underlying objectives of loading armed nuclear missiles?    

Other Mysterious Deaths: Was the Missing  Nukes Incident connected to US War Plans directed against Iran?

Charles D. Riechers
(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/Charles%20Riechers.jpg)
A U.S. Air Force official, Charles D. Riechers, has been found dead on October 14, 2007. [24] Riechers was a retired Air Force officer and master navigator specializing in electronic warfare. He was a member of the Senior Executive Service of the U.S. Air Force, and was the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition and Management. A description of his duties includes “providing sound expert advice and guidance on acquisition and procurement policies, as well as formulating, reviewing and, as assigned, execution of plans, programs and policies relating to organization, function, operation and improvement of the Air Force’s acquisition system.” He apparently killed himself by running his car’s engine inside his suburban garage in Virginia. The death of Charles D. Riechers has been casually linked by The Washington Post to his involvement in fraudulent activities and embezzlement. [25] The Washington Post reported that the Air Force had asked defense contractor, Commonwealth Research Institute (C.R.I.), to give him a job with no known duties while he waited for official clearance for his promoted rank in the Pentagon. Riechers is quoted as saying: “I really didn’t do anything for C.R.I.,” and “I [still] got a paycheck from them.” The question, of course, was whether the contractor might expect favours in return upon his assignment to the Pentagon last January. [26] A mysterious suicide letter expressing shame was subsequently reported; the letter was reportedly from a man who had already admitted without shame that he was receiving money for doing nothing. This was known to the U.S. Senate, which had approved his promotion. In a report featured by Pravda, Russian Intelligence analysts have said that the reported suicide of Charles D. Riechers was a cover-up and that he was murdered because of his involvement in the controversial flight of nuclear weapons over the continental United States. Pravda reports that “Russian Intelligence Analysts are reporting today that American War Leaders have ‘suicided’ [sic] one of their Top US Air Force Officials Charles D. Riechers as the rift growing between the U.S. War Leaders and their Top Military Officers over a nuclear attack on Iran appears to be nearing open warfare.” [27]   According to the Pravda report, the incident was linked to an operation to smuggle nuclear weapons away from the U.S. military in connection to launching a war against Iran. The Commonwealth Research Institute (CRI), a registered non-profit organization is a subsidiary of Concurrent Technologies, which is registered with the IRS as a tax-exempt charity, which is run by Daniel Richard DeVos. Devos is also an associate of John P. Murtha, who was investigated by the F.B.I. for his Saudi links. Certainly the ties of the Commonwealth Research Institute (CRI), a non-profit organization working for the Pentagon, are questionable and the organization could be a front for internal operations that bypass most military personnel. The case appears to be part of an internal operation that was being kept a secret from most of the U.S. military, but what for?

Russell E. Dougherty
(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/General%20Dougherty.jpg)
More than a month before the death of Riechers, General Russell Elliot Dougherty, a retired flag officer, was also reported to have died on September 7, 2007 at his home in Falcon Landing military retirement community in Potomac Falls located in Arlington, Virginia. [28] He once was one of the most senior individuals responsible for the nuclear arsenal of the U.S. military and also the former commander of Strategic Air Command (SAC) and director of the Joint Strategic Target Planning Staff, which identified nuclear targets worldwide amongst its responsibilities. At Minot next to his obituary was a military information notice on suicide, telling servicepersons what the signs of suicide are. [29]  Russell Dougherty in the course of his military career in the U.S. Air Force had dealt with the issues pertaining to Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD), full spectrum dominance, how to defeat the enemy and avoid  a nuclear war, other uses for nuclear weaponry, Nuclear Primacy for the U.S., and tackling the effects of the wind and weather — due to their unpredictable natures — on the use of nuclear weapons.  The fact that the nuclear warheads were attached to the nuclear cruise missiles could mean that someone wanted to take the weapons in one step or to use them right away.

Timely Appointments at U.S.A.F. Base Minot
Several of the commanding officers at Minot were freshly appointed in June, 2007. This may have been part of standard procedures, but the timing should not be ignored.
 
Colonel Robert D. Critchlow was transferred, just before the incident, from the Pentagon to Minot and appointed commanding officer for the 91st Operations Group, a missileer unit and the operational backbone of the 91st Space Wing. In Washington, D.C. he was involved in research for the Congressional Research Services and later posted into Air Force Nuclear Response and Homeland Defence.
  
Colonel Myron L. Freeman was transferred from Japan to Minot in June, 2007. Colonel Freeman was appointed as the commander of the 91st Security Forces Group, which is responsible for securing Minot’s nuclear arsenal.
 
Colonel Gregory S. Tims was also appointed as deputy commander or vice-commander of the 91st Space Wing in June, 2007. However, Colonel Tims was transfered to Minot from California almost a year before.
 
One of the most senior non-commissioned officers (NCOs) or non-commissioned members (NCMs), Chief Master Sergeant Mark R. Clark, was also transferred to U.S.A.F. Base Minot from Nebraska in July, 2007.
 
Colonel Roosevelt Allen was also transferred to Minot from Washington, D.C. to become commander of the 5th Medical Group.
 
Colonel Bruce Emig, the now-former commander of the 5th Bomb Wing, was also transferred to Minot from U.S.A.F. Base Ellsworth in South Dakota in June, 2007. Colonel Emig was also the base commander of Minot.

Colonel Cynthia M. Lundell, the now-former group commander for the 5th Maintenance Group, the unit responsible for loading and unloading weaponry onto the B-52H Stratofortresses was also freshly transferred from a NATO post in Western Europe in June, 2007. Were these appointments temporary? Were any of these appointments related to the six “lost” nuclear missiles?

Prior to the Missing Nukes Incident, Minot Airmen Meet with the President and the U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff
(http://www.globalresearch.ca/articlePictures/Minot%20Airmen%20meet%20Bush%20Jr..jpg)
On June 15, 2007, George W. Bush Jr. met senior officers from U.S.A.F. Base Minot at U.S.A.F. Base McConnell in Wichita, Kansas during a visit to Boeing’s Integrated Defense Systems facility. Amongst them was Major Daniel Giacomazza of the 5th Operational Support Squadron. Senator Patrick Roberts of Kansas was also present. “While he chaired the Senate Intelligence Committe from 2002 to 2007, [Senator] Roberts stonewalled attempts to investigate everything from the manipulation of intelligence in the rush to war in Iraq, President Bush’s warrantless wiretaps, and even allegations of the use of torture by the CIA,” according to Associated Press (AP) reports. [30] The same report also indicates that the U.S. President was in Wichita for a political fundraiser, and stopped at a new Boys and Girls Club of America to defray the costs of getting to Wichita via Air Force One for Senator Roberts’ campaign. Military sources have reported that a B-52H Stratofortress was flown to Wichita so that Boeing’s engineers could take a look in order to make adjustments to the war planes for a new military program. [31] Nothing has been reported about any private meetings between President Bush Jr. or any of his presidential staff and the personnel from Minot. However, reports have been made of meetings between military families and the U.S. President in his office on Air Force One. General Moseley, the Air Force Chief of Staff, had previously visited Minot on March 14-15, 2007, a month before Minot airmen went to Wichita. [32] If a secret mission was being prepared, these events could have played a role in the recruiting phases for an important internal special operation. Following their recruitment, Minot servicemen could have symbolically met General Moseley or White House officials to understand that the mission was being sanctioned by the highest ranks and offices in the United States.

Orders had to Come from the Top: Treason of the Highest Order
Orders had to come from higher up. The operation would not have been possible without the involvement of more than one individual in the highest ranks of the U.S. Air Force command structure and the Pentagon.  The only way to bypass these separate chains of command is “to be above them” (from higher up), as well as have the possibility of directly overseeing their implementation.  These orders would then have been communicated to lower levels in the US Air Force command chain in different locations, to allow for a so-called “oversight” to proceed. The alternative to this is “an alternative chain of command,” although this also needs someone in the highest ranks of office to organize and oversee.

The post given to Riechers was politically motivated, given his track record in the U.S. Air Force. Riechers had been in a position of responsibility in the U.S. Air Force special operational support activities; something he had in common with Russell Dougherty, the former SAC commander. He would have been one of the best suited individuals for making arrangements in the case of an alternative command structure for a secretive nuclear operation. Moreover, he already had a record of corrupt behaviour through his involvement with the Commonwealth Research Institute. The possible involvement of U.S. Air Force weathermen and special operatives raises many questions as to what exactly was the objective of making the nuclear weapons disappear. [33]

The Investigation
The U.S. Air Force has publicly stated that it has made a “mistake,” which is very unusual and almost unprecedented for a military organization that tries to continually assure the American public of their safety. The fact that seventy or more military personnel have been punished in the case of the “lost” nuclear weapons does not mean, however, that the senior commanding officers responsible for having carried out the special operation will be identified and punished.  Quite the opposite. The investigation could indeed result in a camouflage of the chain of command, where lower-ranking military personnel are accused and court-martialed, with a view to ultimately protecting those in high office who have committed an act of treason. The series of deaths mentioned above, may have no ties whatsoever with the the August flight in question from Minot to Barksdale, but the issues of command, monitoring, and authorization cannot be overlooked or ignored. The American people have before them a case of treason that involves the highest offices of government and most probably the offices of the President and the Vice-President.  Once again, the “C2” process involves the Office of the President and Commander-in-Chief. It is an established line of command, without which nuclear weapons could not have been deployed or armed as they were in U.S.A.F. Base Minot. It is this command element that establishes the basis of authorization through which “absolute control of nuclear weapons” is maintained “at all times.”

With time it is possible that military servicemen and servicewomen may come forward with more information.  However, in the meantime, there has been a streamlining of military personnel at U.S.A.F. Minot. Base personnel have become dispersed and reassigned to other locations.  If they on the grounds of loyalty to their country, the United States of America, come forward and reveal what has taken place, they are to be saluted with full honour by all ranks. As George Orwell said, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act,” and indeed these are deceitful times. The fact that U.S. Air Force officers came forward and reported this incident is contrary to U.S. military procedures, regulations, and laws. The U.S. military will never release any information that will risk or damage its reputation. Any information in regards to nuclear weapons can not be released without prior consultations with and authorization by the White House.  The nuclear weapons were armed and moved deliberately. Orders had to have come from the highest echelons of the U.S. government. The question is what exactly were they meant for? Were they part of a war agenda or something else?

Bush Threatens Iran with Nuclear Weapons
What adds intrigue to an understanding of the missing nukes, are the international events and war games taking place just after the “lost” nuclear weapons incident, not to mention the President’s ongoing threats to attack Iran with nuclear weapons and Vice President Cheney's repeated warnings that a second large scale terrorist attack on America is under preparation, with the support of Iran.  In the U.S., under the Vigilant Shield 2008 war games (initiated in September, 2007) and the TOPOFF anti-terrorism exercises, some form of nuclear terrorist attack on American soil had been envisaged. The roles of Russia and China had also been contemplated. The latter would be “a likely scenario” had the U.S. attacked Iran and as a result Russia and China had decided to intervene. [34] Under Vigilant Shield 2007, held in 2006, the possibility of a nuclear war with Iran’s allies, Russia and China, had been contemplated in the war games scenario.  The Kremlin has responded by holding its own war games.[35]

An unveiled threat to trigger World War Three has been the response of George W. Bush Jr. to Russia’s statements warning that a U.S. sponsored war with Iran, could result in an escalating World War III scenario. The six nuclear warheads were not meant for use in theatre operations against Iran. This is obvious because if they were then they would have been deployed via the proper procedural routes without the need to hide anything. Besides, there are already theatre-level nuclear weapons ready and armed in Europe and the Middle East for any possible Middle Eastern mission. There was something more to the incident. It is also worth noting that the Israelis launched an attack on an alleged Syrian nuclear facility that both Tel Aviv and the White House claim was constructed with the assistance of North Korea. This event has been used, through official statements and media disinformation, to draw a Syria-Iran-North Korea nuclear proliferation axis. [36] In regards to the case of the missing nuclear weapons, weathermen and military personnel with an expertise in space and missile components were involved. The incident took place during a time when the U.S. missile shield projects in Eastern Europe and Eastern Asia, directed against Russia and China, were raising international tensions and alarms. On October 23, 2007, President Bush Jr. stated: “The need for missile defence in Europe is real and I believe it’s urgent.” [37] Nuclear warfare, the militarization of space, and “the missile shield”  are interrelated military processes.  The overtones of Nuclear Primacy are hanging in the air. One of the goals of the U.S. military has been to effectively shield itself from a potential Russian or potential Russian and Chinese nuclear response to a nuclear “First Strike” from the U.S. military. [38] The militarization of space is also deeply linked to this military project. Like their advanced knowledge about the U.S. missile shield project, Russian and Chinese officials have got wind of these ambitions and are fully aware of what the U.S. intends to do.

[36] Both the U.S. and Israeli governments cite the arrival of a North Korean ship with alleged nuclear-related cargo as proof, but one needs only point out one fact to dislodge this claim. The U.S. government has setup an internationally illegal program involved in policing the seas and maritime traffic, the International Proliferation Initiative (IPI). Under the IPI the U.S. has been illegally stopping North Korean vessels and inspecting them, especially when they have suspected suspicious materials. Hereto, North Korea has not been given any carte blanches from vessel inspections. The U.S. Navy and NATO vessels have a virtual cordon of the waterways around the Middle East from the Indian Ocean to the Read Sea and Mediterranean Sea. If the North Korean vessel had nuclear materials it would never have reached Syria.

[38] It is here that two things should be noted in regards to physics and magnetospheric physics; Firstly, nuclear explosions from the air are different than ground-based nuclear explosions in many ways (including contamination levels), but the weather and wind direction are major unknowns or variables; Secondly, as a fundamental natural law energy never disappears, it only changes or is transferred. The energy from nuclear explosions can theoretically be transferred into the Earth’ magnetic radiation fields, called the Van Allen Belt or the Van Allen Belts, and used to energize and excite various particles, sub-atomic particles, and ions. Tentatively, if manipulated this can have harmful results on surface areas, including burning electronic and communication devices, and military applications such as disrupting satellites in space. If this were possible Russian, Chinese, Iranian, or Indian military defences, communications, and missile facilities could be effortlessly neutralized.  These radiation belts also travel in loops and notionally an energized pulse set off from an area in the U.S. could circumnavigate into an area halfway around the globe. In fact the U.S. military has been experimenting with manipulating the radiation belts since the end of the Second World War. The U.S. Navy’s Project Argus, taking place from August to September 1958, is an example. A total of five nuclear weapons were used; three atom bombs (weapons using nuclear fission) were detonated above the Atlantic Ocean and two thermonuclear or hydrogen bombs (weapons using nuclear fusion) in the Pacific Ocean in an effort to manipulate the Van Allen Belts.

The Air Force Cover-Up of that Minot-Barksdale Nuclear Missile Flight

If America has put electronic alarms and motion sensors on Russian nukes, wouldn't they be on our nukes too? If so, who turned them off at Minot, and why?

"It makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck."
---Pentagon official

There is something deeply disturbing about the Air Force’s official report on the Aug-29-30 "bent spear" incident that saw six nuclear warheads get mounted on six Advanced Cruise Missiles and improperly removed from a nuclear weapons storage bunker at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, then get improperly loaded on a B-52, and then get improperly flown to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana—a report that attributed the whole thing to a "mistake."

According to the Air Force report, some Air Force personnel mounted the warheads on the missiles (which are obsolete and slated for destruction), and another ground crew, allegedly not aware that the missiles were armed with nukes, moved them out and mounted them on a launch pylon on the B-52’s wing for a flight to Barksdale and eventual dismantling. Only on the ground at Barksdale did ground crew personnel spot the nukes according to the report. (Six other missiles with dummy warheads were mounted on a pylon on the other wing of the plane.)

The problem with this explanation for the first reported case of nukes being removed from a weapons bunker without authorization in 50 years of nuclear weapons, is that those warheads, and all nuclear warheads in the US stockpile, are supposedly protected against unauthorized transport or removal from bunkers by electronic antitheft systems—automated alarms similar to those used by department stores to prevent theft, and even anti-motion sensors that go off if a weapon is touched or approached without authorization.

While the Air Force report doesn’t mention any of this, what it means is that if weapons in a storage bunker are protected against unauthorized removal, someone—and actually at least two people, since it’s long been a basic part of nuclear security that every action involving a nuclear weapon has to be done by two people working in tandem—had to deliberately and consciously disable those alarms.

Since the Air Force report does not explain how this hurdle to unauthorized removal of the six nukes could have been surmounted by "mistake," the report has to be considered a whitewash, at best, or a cover-up.

That leaves us speculating about what actually happened, and about who might have authorized the removal of those nukes from storage, and why the Defense Department would be covering up the true story.   We know that the loading of nuclear-armed missiles or bombs onto an American bomber has been barred since 1991, even for practice and training purposes. We know also that the carrying of nuclear weapons by bombers flying over US airspace has been banned for 40 years. So if the evidence suggests strongly that the removal of the nukes from the bunker was done intentionally and with some kind of authorization from higher authorities, then the loading of nukes onto the plane, and the flight of those nukes to Barksdale have to also be assumed to have been authorized.

This possibility has been dismissed out of hand by the Air Force and Defense Department. The very idea is, in fact, not even discussed in the Air force report released in mid-October.

Yet we are left with the unresolved question of how the weapons could have been moved out of the bunker accidentally.

The Air Force has not been forthcoming about the automated alarm protections on American nuclear weapons, refusing to confirm or deny that they even exist. But we can know that they are in place for several reasons. One is that since writing about this incident in ghd  current edition of American Conservative Magazine ("The Mystery of Minot," Oct. 24, 2007 ed.) and in several online venues, I have been contacted by several active-duty and retired military people who have assured me that such electronic protections are in place. A second is that an article in the Oct. 31 issue of the New York Times, reporting on the early completion of a project by the National Nuclear Security Administration, to secure Russian nuclear weapons, said that the measures implemented at 25 classified sites on 12 Russian nuclear bases included "measures that have long been part of American efforts" to secure nuclear weapons, and that these included "alarm and motion detection systems," as well as "modern gates, guard houses and fighting positions, " and also "detectors for explosives, radiation and metal."

Ask yourselves, would American nuclear weapons be equipped with lesser security systems than those that the NNSA is providing for Russian weapons?

Of course not!

And yet we’re asked to believe that some low-ranking ground crew personnel at Minot AFB simply walked out of a nuclear weapons bunker with six nuclear armed Advanced Cruise Missiles, not knowing what they were carrying, and labored for eight hours to mount those missiles and their launch pylon on the wing of a B-52 strategic bomber without ever noticing that they were armed with nuclear weapons. We’re asked to believe that none of those electronic alarms and motion sensors built into the system went off during that whole process.

When I mentioned the automated alarm and motion sensors to Lt. Col. Jennifer Cassidy, a public affairs person at the Department of the Air Force, and asked her how the movement of the six nukes could have occurred without those alarms being disabled, she said, "It’s an intriguing question, and it makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck."

` As it should.

` So why isn’t it making the hair stand up on the back of the necks of members of Congress?

Incredibly, to date, there has been no demand for public hearings into this frightening incident.

Congress appears ready and willing to accept the Air Force whitewash at face value: It was an accident. It won’t happen again.

That is not good enough!

We need honest answers to some hard questions. Among them:
* Who disabled the alarm systems on those weapons and on the bunker itself?

* Who mounted six nuclear weapons on the noses of six cruise missiles and put those missiles onto a B-52 launch platform? * Who authorized them to perform this operation?

* Who moved the armed weapons out of the Bunker at Minot AFB and mounted them on the wing of a B-52 bound for Barksdale AFB? (Barksdale, it should be noted, bills itself as the main staging base for B-52s being flown to the Middle East Theater.)

* Were the six missiles flyable? Were they fueled up and ready to fire, or were they not fueled at the time of the Minot-Barksdale flight? * Was there targeting information in the missile’s guidance computers and if so, what were those targets?

* What happened to the three military whistleblowers who blew the whistle on this incident and reported it to a journalist at the newspaper Military Times? * Why hasn’t the Air Force or the FBI investigated the 6-8 untimely deaths including three alleged suicides, one of a Minot weapons guard, one of an assistant defense secretary, and one of a captain in the super-secret Air Force Special Commando Group, as well as alleged fatal vehicle "accidents" involving four ground crew and B-52 pilots and crewmembers at Minot and Barksdale? Could any of this strange cluster of deaths have been related to the incident? The Air Force "investigation" didn’t even mention these incidents, and my investigation, reported in the Oct. 24 issue of the magazine American Conservative, found that none of the police investigators or medical examiners in those incidents had even been contacted by Air Force or other federal investigators.


The Secretary of Defense appears to have been upset about this incident. Secretary Robert Gates ordered an unprecedented stand-down of all air bases in mid-September to check out and account for the entire nuclear inventory, and a general was dispatched immediately to Minot after the discovery of the wayward nukes on August 30 to investigate what had happened. Following a subsequent Air Force investigation, 70 people at Minot and Barksdale AFBs were removed from their posts and decertified from handling nuclear weapons, including five officers, one of them the Minot base commander.
* But a base commander does not have the authority to order nuclear weapons to be loaded on a plane and flown. So who issued that order and why has no one at a senior level in Washington been sacked?

There is speculation that the order may have come via an alternate chain of command.

Vice President Dick Cheney is known to be pressing within the administration for a war with Iran, to be launched before the end President Bush’s second term of office. According to some reports, Cheney has even, on his own authority (or lack thereof), urged Israel to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, in hopes that Iran might retaliate, thus drawing the US into a war.
Could the nation’s war-mongering VP have used his neo-con contacts in the Defense Department or some of the Armageddon-believers in the Air Force to bypass the official chain of command and spring those nukes from their bunker?

Was there a plan to use one or more of those nukes—W80-1 warheads that can be calibrated to detonate with an explosive power ranging anywhere from 150 kilotons down to just 5 kilotons—against Iran? The Advanced Cruise Missile, a stealth weapon almost impossible to spot on radar, is designed to be launched from a remote location by a B-52, and then to fly close to the ground to its target, using terrain maps and GPS guidance. It is also designed to penetrate hardened sites, such as Iran’s nuclear processing and research facilities.

Or was there a plan for a so-called "false-flag incident, "where a small nuke—made to resemble a primitive weapon of the type a fledgling nuclear power might construct—might be detonated at a US target abroad, or even within the US?

These are terrible and terrifying questions to have to ask, but when you have six nuclear weapons go missing, when the military investigation into the incident is so clearly a whitewash or cover-up, and when you have a vice president who is openly pressing for an illegal war of aggression against a nation that poses no threat to the US, and who, in fact, appears to be conducting his own treacherous foreign policy behind the back of the president and the State Department, they are questions that must be asked, and that demand answers.

In a couple of weeks, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, is planning on calling for a Privilege of the House vote in Congress on moving his Cheney impeachment bill (H Res. 333) to a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, where it has been stalled by House Democratic leaders since being filed last April 24. Such a hearing should demand answers from the vice president and his staff about his treasonous efforts to push the country into yet another war in the Middle East. It should also grill Air Force personnel about the true nature of the Minot nuclear incident.

Every member of the House of Representatives should have to take a stand on this issue.

The Democratic House leadership, under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, can be expected to try to table Kucinich’s privilege motion, which would prevent such a vote.

Americans should demand that Pelosi and other Democratic leaders let Kucinich’s privilege motion go forward, and should insist that every member of Congress put their position on the line. Every American should demand that their representative to Congress support the start of impeachment hearings on Vice President Cheney.

We need to know if the Vice President’s office was behind the flight of those six warheads.

We need to know in what other treasonous, conspiratorial actions the Vice President has been engaged in his unremitting effort to expand the war from Iraq and Afghanistan into Iran.

JASON ADVISORY GROUP

JASON is an independent group of scientists which advises the United States government on matters of science and technology. The group was first created as a way to get a younger generation of scientists—that is, not the older Los Alamos and MIT Radiation Laboratory alumni—involved in advising the government. It was established in 1960 and has somewhere between 30 and 60 members.

Activities
For administrative purposes, JASON's activities are run through the MITRE Corporation, a non-profit corporation in McLean, Virginia, which contracts with the Defense Department.

JASON typically performs most of its work during an annual summer study. Its sponsors include the Department of Defense (frequently DARPA and the United States Navy), the Department of Energy, and the U.S. Intelligence Community. Most of the resulting JASON reports are classified.

The name "JASON" is sometimes explained as an acronym, standing either for "July–August–September–October–November", the months in which the group would typically meet; or, tongue in cheek, for "Junior Achiever, Somewhat Older Now". However, neither explanation is correct; in fact, the name is not an acronym at all. It is a reference to Jason, a character from Greek mythology. The wife of one of the founders (Mildred Goldberger) thought the name given by the defense department, Project Sunrise, was unimaginative and suggested the group be named for a hero and his search.

JASON studies have included a now-mothballed system for communicating with submarines using extremely long radio waves (Project Seafarer, Project Sanguine), an astronomical technique for overcoming the atmosphere's distortion (adaptive optics), the many problems of missile defense, technologies for verifying compliance with treaties banning nuclear tests, a 1982 report predicting CO2-driven global warming, and a system of computer-linked sensors developed during the Vietnam War which became the precursor to the modern electronic battlefield.
[edit] Membership

JASON members all have security clearances, and they include physicists, biologists, chemists, oceanographers, mathematicians, and computer scientists. They are selected for their scientific brilliance, and, over the years, have included eleven Nobel Prize laureates and several dozen members of the United States National Academy of Sciences.


Recent history
In 2002, DARPA decided to cut its ties with JASON. DARPA had not only been one of JASON's primary sponsors, it was also the channel through which JASON received funding from other sponsors. DARPA's decision came after JASON's refusal to allow DARPA to select three new JASON members. Since JASON's inception, new members have always been selected by its existing members. After much negotiation and letter-writing—including a letter by Congressman Rush Holt of New Jersey—funding was subsequently secured from an office higher in the defense hierarchy, the office of the Director, Defense Research & Engineering.

JASON is what Eisenhower meant by the technologic elite. He created JASON to prevent a nuclear war. It was their only directive, but when the cold war became a non-issue they found other ways to spend their time and Eisenhower outed them. Rockefeller got pissed off that he delivered that farewell address.

But, the Wheeler in the JASON group I think is a different Wheeler and he also died within the past few years I believe.

Brocke,

The connection from MITRE to the JASON group is still very real though and possibly significant.

But, yes, John A. Wheeler was a prominent physicist.

At least two Wilmington City Council members said Friday that the investigation into the death of former Pentagon official John P. Wheeler III -- though important -- should not take priority over any other homicide investigation in the city.
       Simply put, "back the FK off if you know whats good for ya"

The White House Murder INC, local chapter in DC.....still hard at work for the NEOCONS.


January , 2011 -- Another dead body from the Cheney dual nuclear chain-of-command days turns up.....

The White House Murder INC, local chapter in DC.....still hard at work for the NEOCONS.
Wheeler would have had a vantage point if for Cheney's rival chain-of-command.....
Former special assistant to Secretary of the Air Force Michael Wynne, John Wheeler III, also a veteran of the GHW Bush and Reagan administrations, was discovered at the Cherry Island landfill in Wilmington, Delaware on December 31 after it was dumped from a sanitation truck that originated its run in Newark, Delaware. Wheeler's wife lives part-time in Harlem, New York where she reportedly runs a Cambodian silk import business.

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?read=68463

On December 31, 2010, Wilmington Police issued the following press notice: "At 9:56 a.m., Wilmington Police were called to the landfill on East 12th St. Upon arrival, officers were directed to a dump site within the landfill where they located a male body lying in a pile of rubbish. This incident is being handled as a suspicious death investigation. The victim’s identity has not been confirmed at this time. The body has been turned over to the State of Delaware Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the cause of death. Anyone with information regarding this crime, please contact Criminal Investigation Division at 302-576-3620 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 302-576-3620 end_of_the_skype_highlighting."

The body was later identified as Wheeler's. Wheeler was last seen on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington on December 28.

Wheeler, a West Point graduate, former Army officer, and lawyer, served under Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne until Wynne and Air Force chief of staff General T. Michael Moseley. Wynne and Moseley were fired by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates on June 5, 2008, over a breakdown in the security of nuclear weapons under Air Force control, particularly at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. Wheeler left his Air Force position in June 2008, the same month Wynne and Moseley were fired. After leaving the Pentagon, Wheeler took a job with MITRE Corporation....

http://antifascist-calling.blogspot.com/2008/06/meet-mitre-corporation-mcclean.html

While assisting the Secretary of the Air Force, Wheeler was primarily tasked with "standing up" Cyberspace Forces and providing Precision Strike technology and Real Time Streaming Video targeting links U.S. ground combat troops. It was one such targeting video from Baghdad that was among Wikileaks's first major disclosures of U.S. classified information that led to charges that the U.S. was indiscriminately killing civilians in Iraq.

Wheeler was also known to be a strong opponent of the use of biological weapons by the United States. Wheeler was last seen on an Amtrak train from Washington to Wilmington on December 28. Wheeler was also chairman of the fund that raised money to build the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, DC. In that role, Wheeler had a testy relationship with one of the major funders of the project, former independent presidential candidate H. Ross Perot. While serving as director of the Vietnam Veteran's Leadership Foundation, Wheeler was also special counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission during the 1980s.



John Wheeler's suspicious death latest in many of Air Force officials in the last few years....the White House Murder INC, local chapter in DC.....hard at work for the NEOCONS.

According to various Washington Post reports from the time, on November 4, 1983, Wheeler filed a criminal complaint with the Montgomery County Police Department against WDVM [which is now WUSA] Channel 9 investigative reporter Carlton Sherwood for illegally taping a conversation between himself and Wheeler at Wheeler's home in Bethesda, Maryland. Sherwood, like Wheeler, served in Vietnam. However, Sherwood began investigating for Channel 9 where most of the $9 million raised for the Vietnam memorial by Wheeler and memorial fund president Jan Scruggs was spent. Sherwood was arrested by Montgomery County police on November 7, 1983. Channel 9's news management maintained that two audits of the fund were less-than-detailed. In 1984, WDVM retracted its investigative series on the "financial propriety" of the memorial fund and apologized for the story. Sherwood later went to CNN as a special assignments reporter and The Washington Times and he was active in the "Swift Boat Veterans" criticism leveled against 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's Vietnam combat record.

Wheeler, as special assistant to Wynne, would have known about the dual nuclear chain-of-command established by Vice President Dick Cheney, bypassing the Defense Secretary and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, that resulted in a spate of nuclear surety and security incidents during 2007 and 2008.

WMR reported on those incidents from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota and Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana in 2008.

On April 21, 2008, WMR reported:"There is something radically wrong with America's control over its nuclear weapons, particularly those maintained by the U.S. Air Force. After a long investigation, it can now be reported that there is, in effect, two de facto nuclear chains-of-command in the Air Force, one with dangerous links to the neocon cell that exists within the office of Vice President Dick Cheney and Air Force headquarters, the other acting within the bounds of established nuclear weapons surety and control.

On August 30, 2007, a B-52, assigned to the 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale AFB, left Minot AFB with reportedly five AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles armed with W-80-1 nuclear warheads. The number five apparently was reported to Air Force Times, a Gannett publication, by three high-ranking Air Force officers who blew the whistle on what was later described by the Air Force as a 'mistake.' Later, the Associated Press said there were six nuclear armed missiles on board the aircraft. In theory, there should be no discrepancies for such a small number and for such a serious incident.

The B-52 flew 3 1/2 hours across the United States with missiles thought by the B-52 crew to be "dummy warheads" being shipped to Barksdale for 'disposal' under the US-Russian Strategic Offensive Reductions (SORT) arms treaty.

There was, according to sources WMR spoke to at both Minot and Barksdale Air Force Bases, no mistake whatsoever in the transfer of the nuclear-tipped cruise missiles to Barksdale. One airman who had been a bomb loader for 11 years in the USAF relayed, "that was no mistake. That was a major operation."

The cover story was that the cruise missiles were flown to Barksdale for decommissioning. However, conventional cruise missiles are sent to Davis-Monthan Air Force base in Tucson, Arizona for decommissioning while nuclear missiles, according to the former 2nd Bomb Wing official, are sent to Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. The nuclear warheads are sent to either Sandia National Laboratories or Pantex in Texas for disposal. Barksdale plays no part in the missile decommissioning process. Barksdale is, however, a major deployment base for Middle East air operations.

It has been discovered that there were a series of security 'incidents' directed by what amounts to a renegade nuclear chain-of-command that permitted five or six nuclear 5 to 150 kiloton thermonuclear weapons to remain outside of legitimate control for some 36 hours, resulting in a rare Bent Spear nuclear incident report that quickly reached the Oval Office.

The rogue nuclear chain-of-command starts at the White House office of Vice President Dick Cheney, with significant influence from Cheney's Chief of Staff David Addington, and extends to Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne, and further to the Air Force Chief of Staff General T. Michael Moseley."

Our report continued: "Minot's 5th Bomb Wing Commander, Col. Emig, who had been transferred to Minot only three months before the August 30 nuclear incident, was transferred to the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Division at the Air Combat Command at Langley Air Force Base, Virginia. One of the Air Force's primary UAV contractors is Northrop Grumman, which has a cooperative relationship with Israel Aircraft Industries on using Israeli UAV technology, particularly for the Global Hawk UAV.

Emig's colleague, 5th Maintenance Group commander, Col. Cynthia Lundell, was not as fortunate. Directly responsible for the nuclear weapons at Minot, Lundell was transferred to a 'dead end' special assistant job at Warner Robbins Air Force Base in Georgia. WMR has learned that Emig was in charge of Minot when a number of experienced senior non-commissioned officers and officers, including those directly responsible for nuclear surety and safety, were suddenly transferred on temporary assignments to Iraq and Afghanistan from Minot in the months and weeks prior to the nuclear incident.

It is clear that the rival nuclear chain-of-command acted outside the authority of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and used a little-known nuclear weapons protocol known as the 'permissive link' that allows nuclear weapons to be moved and used outside of presidential authority and the transmittal of nuclear codes found in a briefcase known as the 'football' that is always carried by the President's military aide . . .

A little over a week after the Minot-Barksdale nuclear weapons incident, the body of US Air Force Captain and Major-selectee John Frueh, assigned to 'Operations Weather' at Hurlburt Field, adjacent to Eglin, was found near is rental car, near Badger Peak in Washington state. Frueh was in Portland to attend his best friend's wedding. Frueh's last phone call to his family in Florida was from a pay phone at Portland International Airport on August 30, the very same day the B-52 flew with the loose nuclear missiles from Minot to Barksdale.

Frueh was a U.S. Air Force Special Operations 'Weather Warrior' with the 10th Combat Weather Squadron at Hurlburt Field. Weather Warriors are, according to the Air Force, 'Special operations weathermen [who] are meteorologists with advanced tactical training to operate in hostile or denied territory." It should be noted that Iran is considered "denied territory' by the U.S. military.

Frueh was last seen on August 29 in Portland. He was carrying in his backpack at Global Positioning System (GPS), camera, camcorder, and cell phone. Oddly, Frueh's last call to his family was from a pay phone at the airport and not from his cell phone.

There were initial reports that when the B-52 from Minot landed at Barksdale on August 30, it sat on the runway for as much as ten hours, virtually unguarded with five or six nuclear weapons under its starboard wing. However, WMR spoke to a former high-ranking officer with the 2nd Bomb Wing in Barksdale who said that the security for the movement of any nuclear weapons is extremely tight. The officer said that when the nuclear weapons were removed from their highly-secured bunkers, known as 'igloos,' within the similarly highly-secured weapons storage facility at Minot, two-person controls, constant checks of the weapons' serial numbers, higher officer sign-offs, the clearing of a secure route from the weapons storage facility to the B-52 on the ready alert apron by armed security personnel, the placement of orange cones around the nuclear weapons while they are stationary, and the entering of the weapons types on the B-52 flight log, known as the '781.' The '781' would inform the crew whether they were carrying conventional or nuclear warheads, either under the wings or in the plane's interior . . .

WMR's special report continued on April 25, 2008: "On August 24, 2007, three B-52s operating from Barksdale flew a training exercise called REX REDUX, officially billed as a commemoration of a 1938 B-17 flight directed at the Italian luxury liner SS Rex. The exercise, personally ordered by Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley, was actually testing an Israeli-developed imaging and targeting pod called LITENING II on a U.S. Navy contracted merchant vessel, the USNS Bobo, in the Atlantic east of Bermuda and several targets of opportunity along the planes' flight paths through the southern United States.

REX REDUX also involved assets of the Air Force's embryonic Cyber Command in Washington and Barksdale.

Four days later, on August 30, a Barksdale-based B-52 flew six nuclear warhead tipped AGM-129 advanced cruise missiles from Minot to Barksdale. The incident was later called a "mistake" by Air Force officials. However, three high-ranking Air Force officers leaked the incident to the Air Force Times.

Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne, a key member of the rival chain-of-command, rewarded his loyalists in Barksdale by announcing the base had been selected as the preliminary headquarters for the Air Force Cyber Command. Wynne made his announcement at a Shreveport gambling casino. Wynne, according to a CNN report, advocated the testing of nonlethal weapons, like high-power microwave weapons, against American citizens. Wynne said, 'If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation.' . . .

The rival nuclear chain-of-command that was responsible for the Minot nuclear incident, REX REDUX, and associated events is as follows:

Vice President Dick Cheney

-- Chief of Staff David Addington

Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Michael Moseley

-- Gen. Lawrence Stutzriem, Chief of Staff of the Air Force Strategic Studies Group - CHECKMATE

-- Dr. Lani Kass, ex-Israeli Air Force, Cyber Warfare, US Air Force, CHECKMATE

Lt. Gen. Robert Elder, Commander 8th Air Force, Barksdale Air Force Base

Col. Bruce Emig, Commander 5th Bomb Wing, Minot Air Force Base (relieved of command after nuclear incident)

Maj. Gen. Stephen Goldfein, Commander Air Warfare Center, Nellis Air Force Base. . .

In July 2007, there was another unusual incident involving Minot security, one of many reported during the summer of 2007 by Minot security personnel. Found in the Minot Police Department's files is case number CFS# 07-16088. The case involved the misappropriation of a cache of military supplies by two Air Force sergeants assigned to guard nuclear weapons at Minot. The report states: 'Minot Air Force Base Investigations called requesting assistance in locating and apprehending two individuals that had filed a report about missing military equipment.' The two individuals reported the theft of the equipment from a vehicle parked in the city of Minot.

Minot police went to an address of one of the Air Force security personnel in Minot and found 'several other people that were also at the residence.' There were a total of three military personnel at the residence. The police went to a second residence of the other Air Force security sergeant and found 'several flash bang grenades along with one smoke grenade.' One of the Air Force security guards from Minot had originally reported military equipment being stolen from his car in Minot on July 17, 2007. However, the report was false. The two security personnel were actually hording the military equipment for what they described was a 'plan.' Minot Air Force Base security later clamped a gag order on all discussions about 'the plan.' . . .

Nor was Minot the only base involved with the August 30 nuclear incident to experience an unusual event with its nuclear security personnel. On September 27, 2007, the police blotter in the Shreveport Times reported the following:

'A Barksdale Air Force security forces airman was accidentally shot early Thursday, base officials said.

The shooting occurred during shift change about 7:30 a.m. at the 2nd Security Forces Squadron headquarters in Hangar 3. The airman was shot by a fellow security staffer. The incident remains under investigation, so officials could not say what action, if any, may result from the incident.'

There is also the possibility that an Air Force carve out contract may have been used to support the rival chain-of-command. The FBI and Pentagon are investigating a sole source Air Force contract with Commonwealth Research Institute (CRI), a non-profit intelligence subsidiary of Concurrent Technologies.

Charles Riechers, a senior Air Force civilian, was paid by CRI while awaiting confirmation as principal deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for acquisition. After Riecher's conflict of interest was made public, he was found dead of an apparent suicide in his Fairfax County, Virginia home. [On October 14, 2007]. CRI paid Riechers a salary of over $26,000 for no work. Concurrent and CRI are both listed as tax-exempt charities. A federal grand jury is currently examining ties between CRI and Concurrent and particular Air Force officials, including those in the Air Force's office responsible for security, counter-intelligence, and special program oversight (e.g., nuclear and Operation Checkmate). CRI and Concurrent have also provided contract support to the NSA, CIA, National Reconnaissance Office, and Defense Intelligence Agency. CRI has also provided support to the federal government on managing faith-based initiatives.

The Washington Post reported that a CRI spokesperson reported that CRI had 20 employees involved in 'very specialized work/ for the Pentagon and Intelligence Community.

What occurred last summer at Minot, Barksdale, and inside the Air Force offices at the Pentagon and Cheney's White House office was the first time that a renegade chain-of-command assumed control over part of America's nuclear arsenal. Dr. Strangelove is no longer fiction, it is fact.

UPDATE: Inexplicably, the Shreveport Times, a Gannet newspaper, which publishes one edition per day, had two different headlines on its front page. A Times source revealed that this was possibly the result of the presses being stopped after the first print run and the original headline being replaced with a substitute requested by Barksdale Air Force Base public affairs officials. The source said the newspaper was likely pressured by Air Force officials to alter the headline.

The first headline in the September 6, 2007 edition was "B-52 hauls errant nukes to BAFB." The second headline indicates the event was accidental: "B-52 unwittingly delivers nukes to BAFB." The two different headlines were discovered in a microfiche search of the newspaper in the Bossier City, Louisiana Public Library. Other than the headlines, the content of the two articles is the same."

Our April 25, 2008 report also pointed out: "Gates ordered an outside review of the Minot incident conducted by retired former Air Force Chief of Staff General Larry Welch. Welch was hardly an impartial judge, having been part of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's favorite program, the Ballistic Missile Defense System or 'Star Wars II.' Welch led a Blue Ribbon panel that heaped praise on the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization, then led by Air Force General Ronald Kadish.

The Welch Report failed to discover the breakdown in Air Force nuclear command-and-control and the existence of the rival chain. An indication of the worthlessness of the Welch Report was the discovery that in August 2006, four Minuteman nose cone nuclear fuse assemblies were 'mistakenly' shipped from Hill Air Force Base in Utah to Taiwan. The fuses had originally been shipped to Hill from F. E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming in March 2005. Gates reacted to the incident by ordering an unprecedented inventory of all nuclear weapons and nuclear material in the U.S. arsenal . . .

On April 24, 2008, as news broke of an FBI investigation into a long-time Israeli intelligence ring that penetrated the U.S. military and intelligence communities, CIA director, Air Force General Michael Hayden, revealed further 'intelligence' on the Syrian facility, said to be a joint North Korean-Syrian reactor modeled after the Yongbyon facility in North Korea. However, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and American weapons experts cast doubt on the veracity of the CIA's intelligence, including a dubious videotape said to have originated with Israeli intelligence sources. Hayden, it appears, is part of the rival Air Force chain-of-command, taking orders directly from Cheney, to prepare and incite a U.S. military conflict with Syria and Iran.

The FBI investigation of the Israeli spy ring, which included convicted US Navy spy Jonathan Pollard; accused Army spy Ben-Ami Kadish; and possibly others who served in high positions in the George W. Bush administration is also reportedly looking at key members of the rival Air Force chain-of-command....."

While working for Wynne, Wheeler helped formulate the Pentagon's cyber-war policy which ultimately resulted in the creation of the US Cyber Command in 2009. In that position, he worked with Lani Kass, the ex-Israeli Air Force major who now advises the chairman of the Joint Chiefs on policy. Wheeler was opposed to co-locating the US Cyber Command with the National Security Agency. However, NSA director General Keith Alexander now wears both hats -- NSA director and commander of the US Cyber Command -- at his two Fort Meade, Maryland headquarters. The June 25, 2009, Washington Times reported that Wheeler favored putting the Cyber Command headquarters in "Texas or California or Colorado or North Carolina."

Welch remains a member of the Defense Science; Ronald Kadish works for Booz CIA Allen....; Wynne is a promoter of the KC-X Air Force refueling tanker project; Stutzriem is Director of Plans, Policy and Strategy for the North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado; Elder remains Commander, 8th Air Force, Air Combat Command, at Barksdale Air Force Base; Kass is the Senior Policy Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen; Ben-Ami Kadish received a $50,000 fine but no jail sentence from US Judge William Pauley III, who said prison "would serve no purpose." And now Wheeler, an adviser to Wynne on a number of issues and policy questions, has turned up dead in a Delaware landfill....

January , 2011 -- Intelligence "spook" murdered, FBI yields to law enforcement overseen by Vice President's son....

Murdered ex-Air Force official by the atrocious White House Murder INC, had significant intelligence connections.....
In what could otherwise be a Hollywood political suspense and "who dunnit?" murder movie, the murder in Delaware of former special assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force John P. ("Jack") Wheeler has taken on added significance with the decision of the FBI to provide little to no assistance in the murder of an individual described to us by a former senior Air Force official as a long-time "spook."

The FBI only began assisting in the investigation of Wheeler's murder after it initially stated it does not get involved in investigating the deaths of individuals with mental health problems. Before his body was discovered in a Wilmington landfill on December 31, witnesses claimed that Wheeler was disoriented and disheveled....courtesy of special toxins administered to him by the infamous White House Murder INC, and its goons....Hence the FBI's cover-up shenanigans.....

A Wilmington Parking Authority security guard at the New Castle County Court House in Delaware, where Wheeler was captured on a security video, was quoted as claiming that Wheeler looked "homeless." However, some others who saw Wheeler dispute that claim and there appears to be an attempt by certain parties to sully Wheeler's reputation with other reports trying to link Wheeler to smoke bombs being set off at the home of a neighbor who Wheeler and his wife were locked into a real estate legal dispute over the neighbors' under construction home that marred the Wheeler's view. WPVI, Channel 6, in Philadelphia quoted "sources" as claiming Wheeler's cell phone was discovered in the under construction home of Frank and Regina Marini.

Wheeler was last seen returning to Wilmington from Washington, DC. After leaving the Air Force, Wheeler worked for MITRE Corporation as a consultant on cyber-warfare. Earlier, Wheeler had traveled from Wilmington to New York to meet his wife. The Wheelers owned a condominium in Harlem, where Wheeler's wife reportedly runs a Cambodian silk import business. A source familiar with Cambodian silk products told us that the silk originates in Thailand and is sent to Cambodia for sewing and other processing before being re-exported. The CIA has been involved in the Thai silk business since the days of Jim Thompson, the first Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and CIA station chief in Bangkok after the end of World War II. Jim Thompson brand silk ties are still highly sought-after by shoppers...

Phnom Penh, the Cambodian capital, is also at the hub of a Mossad "buy back" weapons program from former Khmer Rouge guerrillas.... Instead of being taken off the market, Israel smuggles the traded weapons to violent hot spots like Burma, Sri Lanka, and others in the region.

Delaware's Attorney General in Joseph "Beau" Biden III, son of Vice President Joe Biden. Biden's role is the chief law enforcement officer for the state of Delaware where a high-level political murder may have taken place adds to the drama of the Wheeler case....

In June 2008, Beau Biden sent two Delaware law enforcement officers to Washington, DC to accompany arrested Barack Obama sex accuser Larry Sinclair to Delaware on money fraud charges that were later dropped due to lack of evidence. Senator Joe Biden was locked in conversations with Obama senior staffers over his being Obama's vice presidential pick. On May 11, 2010, Beau Biden suffered a "mild stroke."

Wheeler's murder has some similarity to the murder of CIA analyst and former Army Colonel William Bennett, who was, with his wife, attacked while walking near their Loudoun County, Virginia home on March 22, 2009. From our April 10, 2009 report: "Federal law enforcement and intelligence officials told us . . . that FBI counter-intelligence agents believe the van seen in the area [of the Bennett murder] was a Ryder rental van. The van, known as a 'cargo van,' does not have rear windows for security purposes and was favored by the Israeli 'art students' who cased the offices and homes of federal employees in the months prior to the inside Job of 9/11. There is particular interest in a heavy set man seen with the white van in the area where the Bennetts were found by police. The description matches that of a known Mossad hit man, called 'Stinky' by FBI counter-intelligence agents. "Stinky's" height is 5' 4", he has black hair that is balding in the front and on the top, and he is said to wear a lot of gold jewelry along with a black leather jacket. Stinky is known to always take a souvenir, such as an item of jewelry, after he performs a murder in order to prove the "hit." The FBI reportedly has an extensive file on 'Stinky' and has linked him to pre-9/11 Israeli art student activities, as well as the 1990 assassination of Canadian arms designer and dealer Gerald Bull in his Brussels apartment. Bull was involved in weapons projects involving Iraq, China, Yugoslavia, South Africa, Spain, and Israel. And the date of Bull's assassination by Mossad should be of interest to FBI and Loudoun County investigators: March 22, the same date that Colonel Bennett was murdered, nineteen years later."

On March 30, 2009, We reported: "Although there is a great deal of interest in a suspicious white van with Florida tags that was spotted in the area on the Saturday evening before the attack on the Bennetts, some Loudoun County officials attempted to brush off the white van with Florida tags that was transporting 'college students' selling magazines as a non-issue and a 'debunked' conspiracy." There were also attempts by the media to paint the Bennetts as reclusive and strange, none of which was true. Similar items are now being floated by some corporate media about Wheeler, although his friends and colleagues have rejected all of them as untrue....and utter fabrications by the odious White House Murder INC,....

There were indications that Bennett may have been brutally interrogated and tortured before being murdered. Wheeler's disorientation, possibly from being administered drugs, and police interest in two chairs in Wheeler's house, possibly used in a similar brutal interrogation, indicate a scenario similar to that of Bennett. Bennett's battered body was found off the side of a road in Lansdowne while Wheeler's was discovered in a garbage dump next to the Delaware Memorial Bridge.

Last news reports are that the FBI is very slowly pretending to getting involved in the Wheeler murder....



I saw the video shots of Wheeler at a parking garage, and he looks fairly elegant in a neat black suit-clear and cogently pointing a finger. Whether he might have been drugged is another matter. But the very name Biden raises big questions. If Wheeler wanted to tell a Dem about the moronic, disastrous smuggled nuke case, he might have waited just about two years, thinking it would take that long at least for Obama to know who he can trust, and who not, even in his own administration.

Wheeler might have thought, given his Mitre employment, that to tell Joe Biden about the smuggled nukes (or any other Bush betrayal) the new might both help his company, and would also preserve the military acuity that caused military leaders to tell Bush no when he wanted to either bomb or possibly mini-nuke Iran. Again, the news about the nukes appears to outline a sharper military move to cut Bush off, thank goodness.

But the Israeli phone routing company might have picked up Wheeler calling Biden or even Biden's son. Wheeler could have told either. Wheeler was last seen in the DuPont-related "Nemours Building," also location of that Jack Abramoff employer, a building with an underground tunnel right into DuPont Company headquarters in downtown Wilmington. Not a good place to dump a body, obviously. I suspect a possible convergence, i.e. the Biderman part of the DuPont family (perhaps the most deeply enmeshed with Rothschild finance, over time) with Rothschild Mossad elements. Both DuPonts and Mossad wanted the nukes to get through with a direct US attack on Iran, which US military brass knew was a moronic move (typical Bush Jr.).

Wheeler says he was mugged---maybe roughed up, things stolen, then injected in the scuffle. We see him in downtown Wilmington (trying to contact some Republican he thinks might help him out when under assault?) and police say his body was likely dumped in a dumpster 12 miles away in Newark, DE. Why move the body so many miles? That suggests a possible DuPont attempt to remove the body from an obvious DuPont family context, or possibly even a Mossad attempt to do the same, out of mutually complicit consideration.

Of course, we don't know the exact motives, but the timing, the location, and the relative weakness of the Southeast Asia and silk misc. suggest a possible nuke weapons case motive. If Wheeler, a high ranking military Republican mainstay were trying to tell Biden's people about the case, the suspects might have moved to kill him before he could contact them. Wheeler's mistake may have been to assume he was secure or could safely use a (Mossad-monitored) US-Israeli phone routing network built into the US phone system.

Imagine, he calls Biden's people. Mossad maps it as possibly suspect, a man directly witness to the nuke smuggling plan. Alarms go off, a surveillance/hit team is put in place, or simply a call to a DuPont, who maybe does the same?
...Slowly, oh so slowly... We must give the perps enough time to get to cover and for the trail to go stone cold... Shades of Vince Foster, indeed... More of the ever-expanding political assassinations on behalf of the usual Corpgov and Zio-fascists. What a country......

cased the neighborhoods and offices of federal employees under the guise of
selling Israeli art, which was actually made in China, are back in the
neighborhood invasion game and they appear to be changing tack.


The latest reports are coming from suburban Atlanta's Gwinnett County, where
individuals meeting the description of Israelis seen in the past in many of
America's suburban communities  are posing as home contractors who attempt
to enter homes to take photographs. WMR also recently reported that
individuals meeting the same description were going to homes in the Atlanta
area trying to place "foreign exchange students" with families.


In Loudoun County, Virginia, "college students" from Florida driving a white
van and selling magazine subscriptions door-to-door were seen in the same
neighborhood where retired U.S. Army Colonel William Bennett and CIA
military technology transfer expert was bludgeoned to death by as many as
five assailants while walking with his wife in Landsdowne, Virginia, on the
early morning of March 22, 2009.


One suburban Atlanta resident has contended with both the foreign exchange
student ruse and, yesterday, two men taking photographs of his house who
claimed to be working for a contractor. The two white males also attempted
to enter the home of the resident's neighbor, a woman who, along with her
family, originally hails from Kenya. The woman told the two men, who claimed
to be contractors for an insurance company, that she had not contacted her
own homeowers insurance company, Allstate, about any problems.


Originally, the two white men were seen around 5:15 pm taking photographs of
a wooded area across from the two homes that sit on a cul-pde-sac in a
primarily African-American sub-division. One of the two men was older,
possibly in his late 40s or 50s, and had black hair that was slightly curly
and a light complexion. The other man, who could have passed for the older
man's son and appeared to be in his 20s, also had black curly hair and a
darker complexion.


FBI and U.S. counter-intelligence reports of Israeli activity in
neighborhoods and around military bases and critical infrastructure
facilities prior to and after 9/11 described Israelis as "Middle Eastern
looking." In Britain, the slightly different terminology of "Mediterranean
looking" is used to describe Israelis. The less-than-specific descriptions
are used to deter outside pressure groups from claiming "anti-Semitism" on
the part of law enforcement.


After the two men photographed the wooded area they were seen walking to the
porch of the Kenyan-American family's home and attempted to enter the
residence. When the men were asked for identification or documentation, they
responded by claiming they were only contractors and did not carry any
paperwork. When confronted by the resident who originally saw the men taking
pictures, they were asked what address they were sent to. One of the
"contractors" responded with the street number "3280," which does not exist.


The two men told the resident that if he did not want his house
photographed, they would leave, which they proceeded to do. The resident
followed them in his car to the exit of the sub-division.


The local police were indifferent when the incident of the door-to-door
foreign exchange student placement representatives was reported by the same
resident who first saw the contractors photographing his home.


After the revelations that an Israeli company, Institute of Terrorism
Research and Response (ITRR), operating out of post office boxes in
Philadelphia and Jerusalem, was contracted by the administration of
Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell to spy on anti-natural gas fracking, gay
rights, animal rights, and BP oil disaster demonstrators in Pennsylvania,
Americans are becoming much more aware of the presence of Israeli
intelligence operatives stalking their neighborhoods and shopping malls.


The man who confronted the "contractors" in his neighborhood also happens to
be a close associate of former Green Party presidential candidate and
congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. McKinney recently suffered a break-in of her
home in nearby DeKalb County. Among the items stolen was her external
computer hard drive and her passport. No cash was stolen in the burglary.
McKinney's mother, who is now alone after the death of her husband, former
Georgia state Representative Billy McKinney, was also subjected to a
telephone call asking whether she would be willing to host a foreign
exchange student.


Just as with the Israeli art student ploy prior to 9/11, federal law
enforcement and some local law enforcement officers are reluctant to take
action against the Israeli neighborhood invaders.


However, thanks to good citizen action on the part of the Gwinnett County
resident who confronted the "contractors," WMR can provide the license
number and color and model of their vehicle: Blue Ford F-150, Illinois tag
6482185.


If the federal government and local law enforcement will not enforce the
laws against the foreign invaders of our nation's neighborhoods, we the
people can take our own action against them. "Let's Roll!"

==========================

April 10-12, 2009 -- Bennett had caught the Israelis red-handed in stealing and selling Patriot technology

April 10-12, 2009 -- Bennett had caught the Israelis red-handed in stealing and selling Patriot technology

Retired U.S. Army Colonel William Bennett, who was bludgeoned to death by as many as five assailants while walking with his wife in Landsdowne, Virginia, on the early morning of March 22 had intimate knowledge that components of Russia's S-300 missile defense system was based on U.S. Patriot missile technology had been illegally sold by the Israelis to both the Russians and Chinese, according to U.S. intelligence sources.

WMR has learned that contrary to previous reports that Bennett left the CIA in 2000, the technical specialist on foreign weapons systems was put in charge of the CIA's technical evaluation of the Russian S-300 missile system that was sold by Russia to Cyprus as the result of a deal between Russia's Rosvooruzheniye arm company and the Cypriot Defense Ministry on January 4, 1997.

On April 6, 2009, WMR reported: "A U.S. intelligence source who examined the Russian [S-300] radar system while being tested in Algeria discovered the original software documents used by the anti-stealth system were written in Hebrew and were provided by the Israelis to the Russians. The Russians were using their partially Israeli-developed anti-stealth radar system to track the high altitude stealth Aurora testing that was going on in the skies above North Africa at the time. The Israelis developed a highly-advanced and portable version of the radar that they sold to both the Russians and the Chinese. In addition, this system is part of the advance early warning radar system used by the Russian S-300 missile system, which Russia has agreed to provide to Iran. The system, according to U.S. intelligence sources, uses software copied from the Patriot missile system sold by the United States to Israel."

After pressure was exerted by the United States and Turkey to the S-300 PMU1 system being placed in Cyprus, it was agreed by Cyprus and Greece that the S-300 system would be deployed on the Greek island of Crete instead. However, the Greek government transferred the S-300 system to the CIA in exchange for four Patriot missile batteries. To placate Turkey for the Patriots given to Greece, the United States provided the Turks with newer F-16 fighter planes. To placate Cyprus, the French agreed to sell the Cypriots Milan-3 anti-tank missiles. The Israelis were rewarded with two additional Patriot missile batteries even though their illegal technology transfers ended up being used in the Russian S-300 system. All of these arms deals were implemented during the Bill Clinton administration.

WMR has also learned that there is still a great deal of interest in the Florida white van seen in the Leesburg/Landsdowne area the night before and the morning of the attack on Bennett and his wife, which left Mrs. Bennett in critical condition. FBI counter-intelligence agents believe the van seen in the area was a Ryder rental van. The van, known as a "cargo van," does not have rear windows for security purposes and was favored by the Israeli "art students" who cased the offices and homes of federal employees in the months prior to 9/11. There is particular interest in a heavy set man seen with the white van in the area where the Bennetts were found by police. The description matches that of a known Mossad hit man, called "Stinky" by FBI counter-intelligence agents. "Stinky's" height" is 5' 4", he has black hair that is balding in the front and on the top, and he said to wear a lot of gold jewelry along with a black leather jacket. Stinky is known to always take a souvenir, such as an item of jewelry, after he performs a murder in order to prove the "hit." The FBI reportedly has an extensive file on "Stinky" and has linked him to pre-9/11 Israeli art student activities, as well as the 1990 assassination of Canadian arms designer and dealer Gerald Bull in his Brussels apartment. Bull was involved in weapons projects involving Iraq, China, Yugoslavia, South Africa, Spain, and Israel. And the date of Bull's assassination by Mossad should be of interest to FBI and Loudoun County investigators: March 22, the same date that Colonel Bennett was murdered, nineteen years later.

More proof of Israel’s infiltration of the top echelons of Houston’s city government and police force.

Israeli Mossad have been hard at work in Harris County, Texas. Wayne Madsen writes today for his member’s only section of a connection to an outside hacker penetrating the Sheriff’s Dept computer system and the connection to Israeli’s smuggling of enriched plutonium.

It is the typical scenario of a whistleblower raising the red flag, reporting an incident to the FBI, then getting fired. And, big surprise, it involves Israel and Israeli companies, airport security, the installation of an integrated security monitoring system by an Israeli firm – Orsus – that would monitor the ports in Houston and the financial backers of Orsus which, of course, are linked to Soros and Israel’s largest bank, and enriched plutonium being developed at a nuclear facility near Amarillo, TX, being smuggled through these same monitored ports in Houston shipping out on Israel’s Zim-American shipping lines who has close links to the Mossad.

You may remember a CIA agent, Roland Carnaby, who was shot to death gangland style by the Houston Police back in April of 2008. A contractor, he was tasked with keeping Israeli intelligence assets and agents under close scrutiny in Houston. He was monitoring this theft of the plutonium and had uploaded a number of evidentiary videos taken at the port of Houston. No surprise, the Houston police took possession of his computer that fateful day.

To Quote MADSEN REPORTS: “WMR also previously reported on Mossad’s penetration of the Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia has visited Israel and is considered close to the Israeli intelligence operation in Houston. Garcia’s overall agenda was also never trusted by Carnaby, according to our sources in Houston. Conveniently, security for the port of Houston comes under Harris County and Garcia. Radiation detectors routinely scan containers at Houston for the presence of nuclear materials, hence, it is important for the Mossad to counteract security at the port.”

…”Carnaby was, reportedly, working with the FBI on the Israeli nuclear smuggling issue and the FBI office in Houston requested that the Houston police call off their chase of Carnaby. WMR has also learned that one of the Israeli agents involved in the Pantex smuggling is the agent known as “Stinky” by FBI surveillance teams. He is called “Stinky” because of his obeseness and sloppy eating habits. “Stinky” was linked to the clubbing death of CIA missile expert William Bennett in Landsdowne, Virginia, near Leesburg, in March of this year and the assassination of weapons developer Gerald Bull in 1990 in Brusssels. Bennett had uncovered evidence that Israel had shared with or sold to China and Russia classified U.S. Patriot missile and stealth technology.

Stinky has been seen in the Amarillo area with a crew from New Jersey and he is believed to have re-entered the United States, after the hit on Bennett, on a false Canadian passport.”

And we’re being conditioned to worry about Iran and the fact they may have nuclear weapons. What a joke.

The real reason Israel wants to take out Iran's nuclear capability
 
U.S. intelligence sources have told WMR that the actual reason why Israel is gearing up for an attack on Iran's nuclear sites is because Israel fears that while its own nuclear weapons are degrading, Iran stands a chance of acquiring more potent weapons.

Intelligence sources report that since Israel's nuclear reactor at Dimona in the Negev Desert was damaged in a fuel rod explosion during a refueling operation, its ability to reprocess plutonium for its nuclear weapons stockpile has been severely diminished. The accident occurred because the Israelis overstressed their Fast Breeder Reactor unit, causing it to become unstable. In 1997, a judge in Tel Aviv ordered the government to pay the family of Haim Itah, a worker at Dimona, NIS 2.5 million, because of cancer he contracted due to radiation leaks at the facility. The leaks were reported to have involved at least one accident at Dimona. The court decision also cited the "negligent safety" policies of Dimona's top management.

Israel has also been forced to quietly re-establish its global nuclear smuggling operations, rampant during the 1960s when it was working to acquire nuclear weapons.

Israel's Dimona nuclear reactor capabilities have always been clouded in maximum secrecy. However, the claim that Dimona was upgraded to a 75-megawatt reactor from its original 25-megawatt design came from Seymour Hersh's book "The Samson Option." In actuality, Israel's 25-megawatt power reactor produces up to 75-megawatts of thermal heat or steam due to inefficiencies in heat exchangers and turbine losses. A reactor of this size can only produce about one to two 30-kiloton size bombs per year with a maximum core/pit life, before reprocessing, of six to fourteen years. If the reactor has been operating for about 40 years, then the maximum number of weapons produced would be no greater than sixty 30-kiloton sized weapons. The maximum number of times that a nuclear core/pit can be reprocessed is about two to three times, due to plutonium losses when the core is re-manufactured. This is determined by the purity of the metal, its alloy content, and its designed detonation size. One single 25-megawatt nuclear reactor, during its lifetime, can only maintain approximately thirty to sixty 30-kiloton sized plutonium warheads per reactor.


WMR has learned that the diminished capabilities of the Negev Nuclear Research Center prompted Israel, in the 1990s, to actively smuggle nuclear materials, including enriched plutonium, to Israel. The smuggling operations immediately became known to the CIA's Counterproliferation Division and its non-official cover (NOC) Brewster Jennings & Associates operation headed up by Valerie Plame.


U.S. intelligence has learned that the Israelis are worried about a nuclear weapons gap with both Pakistan and Iran. Although there is no evidence to suggest that Iran has re-started its nuclear weapons development program since ceasing it in 2003, as reported by CIA, if Iran were to re-establish its program, the math has Israel concerned.

The Iranian reactor was originally an American designed 100-megawatt power/300 megawatt thermal reactor provided to the Shah's regime in 1975. The reactor at Bushehr on the Gulf was built by the Germans and completed by the Russians. If it were re-engineered for weapons development, the reactor has the ability to produce up to eight 30-kiloton plutonium weapons per year or about a total of 96 nuclear weapons in a fourteen year cycle before plutonium reprocessing would be necessary. As the Israeli weapons age, their total stockpile will be reduced to less than 30 weapons within fourteen years, while the Iranian stockpile would grow to 96 weapons of equal explosive size. Thus, a nuclear weapons gap would exist between Israel and Iran. The Israelis are in a panic because they are losing the nuclear race with Iran and Pakistan. Therefore, through its influence with the United States, Great Britain, and France, Israel is seeking to destabilize both Iran and Pakistan. In the case of Pakistan, Israel also has the assistance of India. The security and future of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal is reportedly, and ironically, on the agenda of talks in Washington between President Obama and Prime Minister Indian Manmohan Singh, even as the United States cements a nuclear cooperation pact with New Delhi, which, like Pakistan and Israel, has not signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran is a signatory of the NPT.

Israel's search for replacement enriched plutonium hit pay-dirt when its intelligence service discovered that the Pantex nuclear facility near Amarillo, Texas, stores enriched plutonium fuel that is 99 percent pure plutonium that does not require reprocessing for another 60 to 90 years. However, the Department of Energy has plans to store much of the nuclear fuel now at Pantex at the very secure Yucca Mountain storage complex within the Nevada Test Site. WMR previously reported that Mossad agents are extremely active at military and nuclear sites in Nevada, including the Nevada Test Site. However, Israeli scientists may have already penetrated the security at the Nevada Test Site through a joint operation with the United States. WMR has learned that U.S. and Israeli scientists are co-testing newer electromagnetic core/pit compression techniques that does not use conventional explosives as the weapon detonator. Instead, the fuel is magnetically compressed. The technique overcomes the plutonium aging issue while allowing for the development of micro-nuclear weaponry.For example, 650 grams of force per square centimeter is all that is required to compress a plutonium core into a critical state. 750 grams is the minimum amount of plutonium that is needed in order to produce a nuclear explosion. One kilogram of plutonium produces an explosive yield equal to one kiloton of TNT.

The Israelis discovered that only U.S. nuclear cores composed of plutonium alloys were ripe for theft at Pantex. The 99 percent plutonium fuel was more well-guarded. Because the older plutonium cores required refrigeration to keep them cooler than 150 degrees, the Israelis used refrigeration trucks to move the cores through the port of Houston and into refrigeration containers loaded on board ships belonging to Zim-American Israeli Shipping Company, a firm with close links to the Mossad. From Houston, the plutonium alloy cores were shipped to Israel and Dimona.

One individual who had the port of Houston under close scrutiny was CIA contractor/informant/source Roland "Tony" Carnaby. Carnaby had set up a number of video surveillance cameras at the port of Houston and routinely uploaded the stored videos from the camera units to his Macintosh computer. In April 2008, Carnaby was shot to death by two Houston police officers after what was reported to have been a high-speed chase by police. After he was killed, the Houston police took possession of Carnaby's Macintosh computer. WMR previously reported that Carnaby kept Israeli intelligence assets and agents under close scrutiny in Houston and that he had a strange encounter with an Israeli Consulate General official the evening before he was shot. WMR also previously reported on Mossad's penetration of the Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff's Office. Harris County Sheriff Adrien Garcia has visited Israel and is considered close to the Israeli intelligence operation in Houston. Garcia's overall agenda was also never trusted by Carnaby, according to our sources in Houston. Conveniently, security for the port of Houston comes under Harris County and Garcia. Radiation detectors routinely scan containers at Houston for the presence of nuclear materials, hence, it is important for the Mossad to counteract security at the port.

On August 13, 2008, WMR reported: "WMR previously reported that slain retired CIA station chief in Houston, Roland 'Tony' Carnaby, gunned down gangland-style on April 29 by Houston police after his vehicle ran out of gas, not after a 'high-speed chase' as alleged by Houston police, had a tepid and wary relationship with Israeli intelligence operatives in Houston. Carnaby was contracted to the Port of Houston, as well as the two Houston area international airports, to provide security consultative services. An Israeli firm, Orsus, is currently installing an integrated security monitoring system that will link video surveillance, visitor control, and police dispatch systems to a 24-hour Port Coordination Center. It is known that Carnaby used a number of cell phones to dial into port video cameras to turn them on, stop them, and download captured video data. The Israeli firm was scheduled to begin installation of its system this month.The financial backers of Orsus include ComSor Venture Fund LDC, a joint operation of Comverse Technology, which includes its subsidiary Verint Systems, and Soros Fund Management's Quantum Industrial Holdings Ltd. Other investors in Orsus include Israel's Koor Industries, the leading shareholder of Tadiran, the Israeli defense electronics firm; Cial Industries and Investment, an Israeli holding company; the Cedar Fund, an 'Israeli-related' venture capital firm; Israel Infinity Venture Capital Fund; and Poalim Capital Markets, a subsidiary of Bank Hapoalim, Israel's largest bank."

Carnaby was, reportedly, working with the FBI on the Israeli nuclear smuggling issue and the FBI office in Houston requested that the Houston police call off their chase of Carnaby. WMR has also learned that one of the Israeli agents involved in the Pantex smuggling is the agent known as "Stinky" by FBI surveillance teams.

I have to make a correction on that last post.

The possible conflict in jurisdiction on this case was between Wilmington, Delaware and Newark, Delaware.  There is no evidence he was transported across state lines.

However, one would assume this would be a case high on the priority list for the FBI Counter-intelligence office (massive understatement intended).

C'mon guys.  It's over ten days old now.  Don't let it grow gray hair before you pick it up. This may not a case you can simply ignore.  This may be a future 9/11 situation where inquiries are set up after the fact to determine who knew what and when, and why they didn't do something about it when they had the chance.

History does not have to repeat itself.

Think about it.

There are legitimate functions of federal government and protecting our national security in earnest is one of them.

Usually a cause of death is necessary before ceasing to investigate the death of someone with all of your nation's highest level security clearances, that is for sure.

Of course, the FBI apparently needs this one handed to them before they will even pick it up.

How much trouble would it even be to have someone go to the Amarillo area to have someone ask some questions about "Stinky", or to have someone go through the records of the Ryder vans to see if there were any more "art students" in Delaware that week? And how much trouble would it be to see if the receipts for that weren't in George Soros' vault?

Couldn't they at least go through the motions?

Doesn't anyone there wanna play detective any more, or is that strictly against the rules?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On another note, my theory is that the plutonium itself was valuable even without the codes.

There were reports of missing plutonium from the Savannah reactor (40-50 kg) in the 80's.  I have heard conflicting reports about whether that was an accounting error or no -- one from a relative of an insider, claiming that  was not true  (that the plutonium in that case was not "missing").

If that is the case, it might not be a piece of cake to get your hands on that stuff.  The nuke would at least provide the materials of a dirty bomb.

John Wheeler 10 trash bin sites: Delaware sleuth provides photos, commentary

January 13th, 2011 12:10 pm ET

John P. Wheeler III's body was placed in one of 10 trash bins in Newark, DE, a college town south of Wilmington, according to Newark Police Department. A Delaware sleuth has offered up pictures of the trash bins in an effort to aid those attempting to piece together their own profile of the case that still stumps local law enforcement working it.

Delaware Online, which has been doing an excellent job of covering the information on the case as it comes to light, reported Newark PD spokesman Lt. Farrall as saying, "The information that our investigators have determined is that he was dumped into...one of 10 Dumpsters within the city. We're still trying to determine which dumpster that was."

Internet speculation has posited that Wheeler might have been dumped prior to the Waste Mangement truck beginning its route, but police are confident that is not the case.

ATTENTION ALL PEOPLE. John Wheeler was a computer CYBER ATTACK SPECIALIST who worked for Mitre Corporation. Google "John Wheeler, MITRE and 9/11" and do some research. Mitre is connected to PTECH and both companies were involved in 9/11. They have clients like the FAA, CIA, DOD, NORAD and MANY OTHERS. "Ptech was with MITRE Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 9-11" Wheeler was also a lawyer for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

There are just so many ways this guy was involved in top secret + military projects and possible financial dirty dealings at the highest level.

It is just mind-boggling that that the FBI have recused themsleves on this case, as it were.  The order has to have come from higher up not to touch it.

At this point -- over two weeks later -- there is nothing else one could reasonably believe.

Cause of death released in Wheeler case


Updated at 08:05 PM today
 
Defense consultant and former presidential aide John Wheeler III, who served presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, was found dead in a Wilmington landfill December 31, 2010.

  By RANDALL CHASE Associated Press

WILMINGTON, Del. - January 28, 2011 (WPVI) -- A federal defense consultant whose body was found in a Delaware landfill was assaulted and died of blunt force trauma, the state medical examiner's office said Friday.

Officials offered no other details about the death of John Wheeler III of New Castle, whose body was found among a load of trash being dumped at the Wilmington landfill on the morning of Dec. 31.

Officials determined several weeks ago that Wheeler was a homicide victim, but they did not disclose any other details. Authorities had said they would not release the cause of death until toxicology tests were completed. They still refused to disclose the results of those tests on Friday.

Police: Wheeler Erratic Day before Body Found
 
(CBS)  More than a week after the body of former presidential and Pentagon aide John Wheeler III was found in a Delaware garbage dump, there are new, puzzling clues, few answers, and a lot of questions.

The mystery began on New Year's Eve, when Wheeler's body was discovered in the Wilmington-area dump after it was left by a garbage truck.

His death was quickly ruled a homicide, but a criminologist told "The Early Show on Saturday Morning" authorities may have moved too quickly in that declaration, and that there are other plausible possible causes of death.

Any one of my first year investigators knew better than to jump to those kind of conclusions. They just want the podunk cops to investigate it so no doors get opened up. The local cops don't have access to the files this guy worked on, or who he worked for exactly. If it got handed to the Feds, or rather, if they bothered to take the case, then they could dig up more than they want to, and that could be ugly with sunshine laws. They figure if the podunks work it, there wont be any uncomfortable questions. Uhhh wrong there buckos.

Gates says nuclear forces have fixed slips
(AP) – 12 hours ago

OFFUT AIR FORCE BASE, Neb. (AP) — Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Friday credited the departing chief of the nation's nuclear forces with restoring that highly sensitive mission to its "proper place of honor" following a series of embarrassing episodes involving mishandling the weapons meant to deter nuclear attack on the U.S.

Gates presided over a change-of-command ceremony in which Air Force Gen. Robert Kehler was formally installed as chief of U.S. Strategic Command, succeeding Air Force Gen. Kevin Chilton, who is retiring after 35 years of service. Chilton is a former fighter pilot and NASA astronaut.

Strategic Command, with headquarters on this air base near Omaha, has responsibility for the nation's nuclear forces, including long-range missiles carried aboard submarines and bombers as well as land-based missiles capable of striking around the globe. The command also has the main responsibility in the military for defending U.S. interests in space and cyberspace, and it is in charge of coordinating U.S. global missile defense operations.

Usually a cause of death is necessary before ceasing to investigate the death of someone with all of your nation's highest level security clearances, that is for sure.

Of course, the FBI apparently needs this one handed to them before they will even pick it up.

How much trouble would it even be to have someone go to the Amarillo area to have someone ask some questions about "Stinky", or to have someone go through the records of the Ryder vans to see if there were any more "art students" in Delaware that week? And how much trouble would it be to see if the receipts for that weren't in George Soros' vault?

Couldn't they at least go through the motions?

Doesn't anyone there wanna play detective any more, or is that strictly against the rules?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On another note, my theory is that the plutonium itself was valuable even without the codes.

There were reports of missing plutonium from the Savannah reactor (40-50 kg) in the 80's.  I have heard conflicting reports about whether that was an accounting error or no -- one from a relative of an insider, claiming that  was not true  (that the plutonium in that case was not "missing").

If that is the case, it might not be a piece of cake to get your hands on that stuff.  The nuke would at least provide the materials of a dirty bomb.

Now, what was under the kitchen floorboards, and what was all the noise for?

Isn't anyone back in D.C. remotely curious at this point?

What does it take to pique their curiosity?

Wait, what? Can someone expand on an Amarillo connection?
As in Amarillo, Texas? where Pantex is located at?
I grew up there, first time I have seen a reference to Amarillo in this case.
Thanx

More proof of Israel’s infiltration of the top echelons of Houston’s city government and police force.

Israeli Mossad have been hard at work in Harris County, Texas. Wayne Madsen writes today for his member’s only section of a connection to an outside hacker penetrating the Sheriff’s Dept computer system and the connection to Israeli’s smuggling of enriched plutonium.

It is the typical scenario of a whistleblower raising the red flag, reporting an incident to the FBI, then getting fired. And, big surprise, it involves Israel and Israeli companies, airport security, the installation of an integrated security monitoring system by an Israeli firm – Orsus – that would monitor the ports in Houston and the financial backers of Orsus which, of course, are linked to Soros and Israel’s largest bank, and enriched plutonium being developed at a nuclear facility near Amarillo, TX, being smuggled through these same monitored ports in Houston shipping out on Israel’s Zim-American shipping lines who has close links to the Mossad.

You may remember a CIA agent, Roland Carnaby, who was shot to death gangland style by the Houston Police back in April of 2008. A contractor, he was tasked with keeping Israeli intelligence assets and agents under close scrutiny in Houston. He was monitoring this theft of the plutonium and had uploaded a number of evidentiary videos taken at the port of Houston. No surprise, the Houston police took possession of his computer that fateful day.

To Quote MADSEN REPORTS: “WMR also previously reported on Mossad’s penetration of the Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia has visited Israel and is considered close to the Israeli intelligence operation in Houston. Garcia’s overall agenda was also never trusted by Carnaby, according to our sources in Houston. Conveniently, security for the port of Houston comes under Harris County and Garcia. Radiation detectors routinely scan containers at Houston for the presence of nuclear materials, hence, it is important for the Mossad to counteract security at the port.”

…”Carnaby was, reportedly, working with the FBI on the Israeli nuclear smuggling issue and the FBI office in Houston requested that the Houston police call off their chase of Carnaby. WMR has also learned that one of the Israeli agents involved in the Pantex smuggling is the agent known as “Stinky” by FBI surveillance teams. He is called “Stinky” because of his obeseness and sloppy eating habits. “Stinky” was linked to the clubbing death of CIA missile expert William Bennett in Landsdowne, Virginia, near Leesburg, in March of this year and the assassination of weapons developer Gerald Bull in 1990 in Brusssels. Bennett had uncovered evidence that Israel had shared with or sold to China and Russia classified U.S. Patriot missile and stealth technology.

Stinky has been seen in the Amarillo area with a crew from New Jersey and he is believed to have re-entered the United States, after the hit on Bennett, on a false Canadian passport.”

And we’re being conditioned to worry about Iran and the fact they may have nuclear weapons. What a joke.

The real reason Israel wants to take out Iran's nuclear capability
 
U.S. intelligence sources have told WMR that the actual reason why Israel is gearing up for an attack on Iran's nuclear sites is because Israel fears that while its own nuclear weapons are degrading, Iran stands a chance of acquiring more potent weapons.

Intelligence sources report that since Israel's nuclear reactor at Dimona in the Negev Desert was damaged in a fuel rod explosion during a refueling operation, its ability to reprocess plutonium for its nuclear weapons stockpile has been severely diminished. The accident occurred because the Israelis overstressed their Fast Breeder Reactor unit, causing it to become unstable. In 1997, a judge in Tel Aviv ordered the government to pay the family of Haim Itah, a worker at Dimona, NIS 2.5 million, because of cancer he contracted due to radiation leaks at the facility. The leaks were reported to have involved at least one accident at Dimona. The court decision also cited the "negligent safety" policies of Dimona's top management.

Israel has also been forced to quietly re-establish its global nuclear smuggling operations, rampant during the 1960s when it was working to acquire nuclear weapons.

Israel's Dimona nuclear reactor capabilities have always been clouded in maximum secrecy. However, the claim that Dimona was upgraded to a 75-megawatt reactor from its original 25-megawatt design came from Seymour Hersh's book "The Samson Option." In actuality, Israel's 25-megawatt power reactor produces up to 75-megawatts of thermal heat or steam due to inefficiencies in heat exchangers and turbine losses. A reactor of this size can only produce about one to two 30-kiloton size bombs per year with a maximum core/pit life, before reprocessing, of six to fourteen years. If the reactor has been operating for about 40 years, then the maximum number of weapons produced would be no greater than sixty 30-kiloton sized weapons. The maximum number of times that a nuclear core/pit can be reprocessed is about two to three times, due to plutonium losses when the core is re-manufactured. This is determined by the purity of the metal, its alloy content, and its designed detonation size. One single 25-megawatt nuclear reactor, during its lifetime, can only maintain approximately thirty to sixty 30-kiloton sized plutonium warheads per reactor.


WMR has learned that the diminished capabilities of the Negev Nuclear Research Center prompted Israel, in the 1990s, to actively smuggle nuclear materials, including enriched plutonium, to Israel. The smuggling operations immediately became known to the CIA's Counterproliferation Division and its non-official cover (NOC) Brewster Jennings & Associates operation headed up by Valerie Plame.


U.S. intelligence has learned that the Israelis are worried about a nuclear weapons gap with both Pakistan and Iran. Although there is no evidence to suggest that Iran has re-started its nuclear weapons development program since ceasing it in 2003, as reported by CIA, if Iran were to re-establish its program, the math has Israel concerned.

The Iranian reactor was originally an American designed 100-megawatt power/300 megawatt thermal reactor provided to the Shah's regime in 1975. The reactor at Bushehr on the Gulf was built by the Germans and completed by the Russians. If it were re-engineered for weapons development, the reactor has the ability to produce up to eight 30-kiloton plutonium weapons per year or about a total of 96 nuclear weapons in a fourteen year cycle before plutonium reprocessing would be necessary. As the Israeli weapons age, their total stockpile will be reduced to less than 30 weapons within fourteen years, while the Iranian stockpile would grow to 96 weapons of equal explosive size. Thus, a nuclear weapons gap would exist between Israel and Iran. The Israelis are in a panic because they are losing the nuclear race with Iran and Pakistan. Therefore, through its influence with the United States, Great Britain, and France, Israel is seeking to destabilize both Iran and Pakistan. In the case of Pakistan, Israel also has the assistance of India. The security and future of Pakistan's nuclear arsenal is reportedly, and ironically, on the agenda of talks in Washington between President Obama and Prime Minister Indian Manmohan Singh, even as the United States cements a nuclear cooperation pact with New Delhi, which, like Pakistan and Israel, has not signed the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Iran is a signatory of the NPT.

Israel's search for replacement enriched plutonium hit pay-dirt when its intelligence service discovered that the Pantex nuclear facility near Amarillo, Texas, stores enriched plutonium fuel that is 99 percent pure plutonium that does not require reprocessing for another 60 to 90 years. However, the Department of Energy has plans to store much of the nuclear fuel now at Pantex at the very secure Yucca Mountain storage complex within the Nevada Test Site. WMR previously reported that Mossad agents are extremely active at military and nuclear sites in Nevada, including the Nevada Test Site. However, Israeli scientists may have already penetrated the security at the Nevada Test Site through a joint operation with the United States. WMR has learned that U.S. and Israeli scientists are co-testing newer electromagnetic core/pit compression techniques that does not use conventional explosives as the weapon detonator. Instead, the fuel is magnetically compressed. The technique overcomes the plutonium aging issue while allowing for the development of micro-nuclear weaponry.For example, 650 grams of force per square centimeter is all that is required to compress a plutonium core into a critical state. 750 grams is the minimum amount of plutonium that is needed in order to produce a nuclear explosion. One kilogram of plutonium produces an explosive yield equal to one kiloton of TNT.

The Israelis discovered that only U.S. nuclear cores composed of plutonium alloys were ripe for theft at Pantex. The 99 percent plutonium fuel was more well-guarded. Because the older plutonium cores required refrigeration to keep them cooler than 150 degrees, the Israelis used refrigeration trucks to move the cores through the port of Houston and into refrigeration containers loaded on board ships belonging to Zim-American Israeli Shipping Company, a firm with close links to the Mossad. From Houston, the plutonium alloy cores were shipped to Israel and Dimona.

One individual who had the port of Houston under close scrutiny was CIA contractor/informant/source Roland "Tony" Carnaby. Carnaby had set up a number of video surveillance cameras at the port of Houston and routinely uploaded the stored videos from the camera units to his Macintosh computer. In April 2008, Carnaby was shot to death by two Houston police officers after what was reported to have been a high-speed chase by police. After he was killed, the Houston police took possession of Carnaby's Macintosh computer. WMR previously reported that Carnaby kept Israeli intelligence assets and agents under close scrutiny in Houston and that he had a strange encounter with an Israeli Consulate General official the evening before he was shot. WMR also previously reported on Mossad's penetration of the Houston Police Department and the Harris County Sheriff's Office. Harris County Sheriff Adrien Garcia has visited Israel and is considered close to the Israeli intelligence operation in Houston. Garcia's overall agenda was also never trusted by Carnaby, according to our sources in Houston. Conveniently, security for the port of Houston comes under Harris County and Garcia. Radiation detectors routinely scan containers at Houston for the presence of nuclear materials, hence, it is important for the Mossad to counteract security at the port.

On August 13, 2008, WMR reported: "WMR previously reported that slain retired CIA station chief in Houston, Roland 'Tony' Carnaby, gunned down gangland-style on April 29 by Houston police after his vehicle ran out of gas, not after a 'high-speed chase' as alleged by Houston police, had a tepid and wary relationship with Israeli intelligence operatives in Houston. Carnaby was contracted to the Port of Houston, as well as the two Houston area international airports, to provide security consultative services. An Israeli firm, Orsus, is currently installing an integrated security monitoring system that will link video surveillance, visitor control, and police dispatch systems to a 24-hour Port Coordination Center. It is known that Carnaby used a number of cell phones to dial into port video cameras to turn them on, stop them, and download captured video data. The Israeli firm was scheduled to begin installation of its system this month.The financial backers of Orsus include ComSor Venture Fund LDC, a joint operation of Comverse Technology, which includes its subsidiary Verint Systems, and Soros Fund Management's Quantum Industrial Holdings Ltd. Other investors in Orsus include Israel's Koor Industries, the leading shareholder of Tadiran, the Israeli defense electronics firm; Cial Industries and Investment, an Israeli holding company; the Cedar Fund, an 'Israeli-related' venture capital firm; Israel Infinity Venture Capital Fund; and Poalim Capital Markets, a subsidiary of Bank Hapoalim, Israel's largest bank."

Carnaby was, reportedly, working with the FBI on the Israeli nuclear smuggling issue and the FBI office in Houston requested that the Houston police call off their chase of Carnaby. WMR has also learned that one of the Israeli agents involved in the Pantex smuggling is the agent known as "Stinky" by FBI surveillance teams. He is called "Stinky" because of his obeseness and sloppy eating habits. "Stinky" was linked to the clubbing death of CIA missile expert William Bennett in Landsdowne, Virginia, near Leesburg, in March of this year and the assassination of weapons developer Gerald Bull in 1990 in Brusssels. Bennett had uncovered evidence that Israel had shared with or sold to China and Russia classified U.S. Patriot missile and stealth technology.

Stinky has been seen in the Amarillo area with a crew from New Jersey and he is believed to have re-entered the United States, after the hit on Bennett, on a false Canadian passport.

Well, if you go back to Amarillo, keep an eye out for "Stinky", 'cause the Feds don't seem to be too interested in taking the case, and the flatfoots from Delaware probably don't have dough for the airfare or something.

Title: UPDATE: Bio Warfare Expert John Wheeler died of ‘blunt force trauma’!
Post by: kita on January 31, 2011, 05:43:57 am


Toxicology “didn’t play a role” in his death, officials said.

By CRIS BARRISH and ESTEBAN PARRA • The News Journal • January 28, 2011

Homicide victim John P. Wheeler III, a former Pentagon official and presidential aide whose body was discovered Dec. 31 in a Wilmington landfill, was beaten to death in an assault, the Delaware medical examiner’s office announced today.

The official cause of Wheeler’s slaying was “blunt force trauma,’’ agency spokesman Karl Kanefsky said about a case that has drawn worldwide media coverage.

Police reiterated today that the case remains under investigation but acknowledge they cannot fill in critical gaps in the murder mystery.

Within hours of the grisly New Year’s Eve discovery, state pathologists had ruled that the 66-year-old New Castle resident was a homicide victim, but until today authorities had been mum on the cause of his death — an unusual posture in Delaware, where such information is usually released promptly.

The four-week delay has helped fuel rampant speculation that Wheeler, a defense consultant and expert on chemical and biological weapons, was poisoned by enemies – a theory that persisted in part because he was seen stumbling around Wilmington in the days before he died and officials said they were awaiting the results of toxicology tests.

Wasnt that woman who died in her garage and was subsequently burnt up...wasnt she an aide as well, or just a lobbyist? Either way, thats several strange, high profile (normally), deaths within weeks of each other.

Exactly, Chris.

"Put himself in the dumpster" ???

And I don't trust the most recent toxicaology report either.

I still suspect Scopolamine or some othere similar agent was used.

Smells of a cover-up.

The four-week delay has helped fuel rampant speculation that Wheeler, a defense consultant and expert on chemical and biological weapons, was poisoned by enemies -- a theory that persisted in part because he was seen stumbling around Wilmington in the days before he died and officials said they were awaiting the results of toxicology tests.

Hal G. Brown, deputy director of the medical examiner’s office, said he did not know what medications or chemicals, if any, were in Wheeler’s system, but said the death certificate makes it clear that toxicology “didn’t play a role’’ in Wheeler’s death.

Why is Joe Biden's son helping to cover-up the murder of a US government official?

Attorney General Beau Biden's office, along with police investigators, have sought to keep information about the case from the public.

Family of slain ex-Pentagon official wants info
By RANDALL CHASE


The Associated Press

WILMINGTON, Del. — The family of a slain ex-Pentagon official whose body was found in a Delaware landfill still doesn't know what happened to him, and their attempts to get more information from law enforcement have been rebuffed, their attorney said Monday.

Colm Connolly, an attorney for John Wheeler III's family, said he has asked forensic reports, search warrants and a copy of a video surveillance tape showing Wheeler in downtown Wilmington the night before his body was found. Connolly also noted that Wheeler's family learned only through the media last week that a medical examiner had officially determined that Wheeler died of blunt trauma injuries after being assaulted...

If there was a nuclear false-flag in America, besides having a free hand in the ME, would be able to roll out repressive measures like this that are just waiting for the proper occasion.

I think it will be a package deal, and the package (a nuclear or radiological device) may already be in play.

U.S. officials warn Wall Street may be target of Al Qaeda offshoot for terrorist attack
BY James Gordon Meek
DAILY NEWS WASHINGTON BUREAU

(http://assets.nydailynews.com/img/2011/02/02/alg_wall-street_bull.jpg)
The third issue of Inspire quoted Osama Bin Laden as saying he wanted to bleed the U.S. economy - and referred to the recent cargo planes plot as "Operation Hemorrhage."

WASHINGTON - Counterterror officials are warning Wall Street that financial institutions may be in the cross-hairs of an Al Qaeda offshoot.

The new U.S. security warning carries no specific threat by Yemen-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

But the group's latest propaganda screed in its online magazine "Inspire" raised alarm by encouraging jihadis to target high finance, officials told the Daily News on Tuesday.

"We shared information with relevant partners that might not usually read 'Inspire,'" said a senior U.S. counterterror official.

Several counterterror officials said no specific threat to any financial institution has been uncovered, but that the Inspire article raised concern because it may contain hints of future attacks.

In the latest issue, released Jan. 16 and first reported by WNBC, Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki - the only U.S. citizen on America's targeted killing list - urged followers to attack financial centers.

"We suggest that the following should be targeted: Government owned property, banks, global corporations \[and\] wealth belonging to disbelievers with known animosity towards Muslims," Awlaki wrote.

Awlaki, who is tied to the 9/11 plotters, the Fort Hood killings and the Christmas 2009 undies airbomber, said both American "government and private citizens should be targeted."

Police search home of murdered former Pentagon official

By Reuters
Wednesday, February 16th, 2011 -- 4:40 pm

PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Police in Delaware remained tight lipped on Wednesday about why they returned to the home of John P. Wheeler III, the former Pentagon official whose body was found in a landfill on December 31.

Several officers from the Delaware city of Newark, the lead investigative force in the case, went to the New Castle home Tuesday, said Lt. Mark Farrall. He said the search warrant was sealed and declined to provide any details.

At this point there are no suspects in the case and no crime scene, Farrall said. Police were hopeful that a $25,000 reward established by the Wheeler family would result in helpful information. A tip line that police established at the time of the disappearance has been silent, Farrall said.

Wheeler's body was found in Wilmington's Cherry Island Landfill on December 31.

Widow's stressful life after landfill death
Pace of investigation, uncertainty frustrate wife of John Wheeler
 



Slate.com Slate.com
updated 2/17/2011 8:12:00 PM ET 2011-02-18T01:12:00


The last time Katherine Klyce saw her husband, John Wheeler, she was mad at him. It was the day after Christmas, and she was looking forward to a relaxing few days at home in New York City. "I like the week between Christmas and New Year's because you can lie around and go to the movies," said Klyce. But Wheeler said he had to go to Washington, where he'd held numerous posts in the Reagan and both Bush administrations, and where he currently worked for a defense technology firm. Klyce was upset, but she didn't sense anything wrong. "He seemed just like Jack."

Nor was it a surprise when she didn't hear from him for a few days. Wheeler and Klyce, his second wife, had homes in New York City and New Castle, Del. Wheeler traveled a lot for work, so they weren't always in the same place at the same time. Klyce tried to call Wheeler a couple of times in the days after Christmas, but the calls went straight to voice mail. "That just made me madder," she said. They had plans to attend a cousin's wedding in Cambridge on New Year's Eve. When she couldn't reach her husband, Klyce went to the wedding without him.

..It wasn't until Jan. 2, when she was back in New York, that she heard Jack was dead. His body had been found in a pile of trash at the Cherry Island Landfill in Newark, Del., the morning of New Year's Eve. Newark police had first called Kate Wheeler, Jack's daughter by his first marriage who currently lives in New York. Kate went to Klyce and Wheeler's Harlem apartment to tell Klyce in person. "You hear it and you don't take it in," Klyce said in an interview. "It's like your brain doesn't absorb the news."

The lack of communication has frustrated Klyce. "They have been so bad," she said. "They've made my life so miserable." After Wheeler's death, the whole family went down to the Newark police station for questioning. "They treated us like criminals, all of us," said Klyce. "They were rude."

The cops confiscated credit cards, financial records, and Wheeler's computer. In recent weeks, some of her cards have had mysterious charges, including two plane tickets from New York to Madrid totaling $3,000, according to Klyce.

Delaware crime: The death of John P. Wheeler: Random killing or assassination?
In first extended interview, widow of former federal official says he looked scared in his final days
12:24 AM, May. 11, 2011
...
Though police have been tight-lipped about what they have uncovered, Klyce's account helped fill several gaps in a timeline that began when Wheeler left their New York City condominium the morning of Dec. 28 and ended with the discovery of his corpse three days later.

For example, she said Wheeler was found wearing his Rolex watch, bought in Vietnam during his tour in the late 1960s, and treasured West Point class ring. Though the neck wallet Wheeler usually wore to carry a credit card, keys and an identification card were not returned, Klyce said the discovery of the expensive jewelry on his body "casts doubt on the robbery theory."

...authorities won't say where on Wheeler's body the fatal blows were inflicted...She saw his body only from the neck up and speculated the fatal blows were to "his torso."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Parsons_(academic_and_filmmaker)

Jack Parsons (1920 – 3 October 2006) is remembered principally for his research as a sociologist, which advocated and promoted the practice of population control. He also wrote, directed, produced and edited a documentary film, The Blackhill Campaign, between 1959 and 1963, about the closure of a coal mine near Berwick Upon Tweed in 1959. Biography Parsons was born in Nottinghamshire in 1920. He served in the RAF during World War II, before working in civil engineering and studying as a mature student at Keele University from 1952-55. He then worked as a research officer for the National Coal Board until 1959, before his first academic appointment at the Brunel College of Technology in London. He moved to Cardiff in 1974, where he worked at the Sir David Owen Population Centre at Cardiff University until his retirement in 1981. Parsons continued to write and publish until his death in 2006.

Population Control Research
Parsons became interested in population control during the 1960s, and began the research that led to a significant body of books and articles being published between 1971 and 1998. His essential thesis was that overpopulation can be seen as a threat to personal liberty and that the governments of developed countries deliberately encouraged unsustainable population growth as a form of political control. This was first proposed in Parsons' 1971 monograph Population Versus Liberty, and developed further over the following decades, culminating in his two-volume monograph A Study of the Pursuit of Power Through Numbers in 1998. Parsons also saw himself as a maverick and a thorn in the side of the political establishment, believing that it deliberately sought to suppress his research. His detractors regarded him as a conspiracy theorist. In 1971 he founded his own publishing company, the Population Policy Press, primarily to publish his own work, claiming that reputable academic publishers refused to do so on account of its controversial nature. In his last major published work, The Treason of the BBC (2006), Parsons accused the British Broadcasting Corporation of suppressing the debate around overpopulation.

The Blackhill Campaign
In 1959 Parsons read about the political controversy that had emerged following the announcement by the National Coal Board (NCB) that Blackhill Colliery, near the village of Scremerston in Northumberland, was to close with the loss of 160 jobs. Parsons was working for the NCB at the time. It was rumoured that the decision was the result of a national deal that had been made between the NCB and the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) to manage the contraction in the coal industry that had been necessitated by falling demand in the late 1950s. Parsons wrote an article condemning the centralised decision making that had driven the process, arguing that the local community and businesses dependant on the mine should have been involved.[1] On the advice and encouragement of his friend, the Free Cinema filmmaker Karel Reisz, Parsons then decided to make a documentary about the campaign, despite being an amateur with no formal training in or prior knowledge of film production. The film was produced in his spare time between 1959 and 1963, with the only professional help coming from a completion grant provided by the British Film Institute's Experimental Production Fund in the final months of the process. Given the film's amateur provenance, it received a surprisingly positive reception by critics following the first screenings in the winter of 1963-64: The Observer's reviewer, for example, described The Blackhill Campaign as 'a much more powerful and real thing to give filmgoers than the numbing second features that are pumped out satisfy their alleged appetite'.[2] Despite the positive reception of The Blackhill Campaign, Parsons returned to his career as a sociologist and did not make any further films. Blackhill had disappeared from the British Film Institutes's non-theatrical distribution catalogue by the late 1960s, and was in effect a lost film until its rediscovery and restoration by the Northern Region Film and Television Archive in 2004. At the time of writing, it is available to purchase on DVD from the Population Policy Press.

Jack Parsons: OTO Occultist & Rocket Engineer
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Whiteside_Parsons

John Whiteside Parsons (born Marvel Whiteside Parsons on October 2, 1914 – died June 17, 1952), better known as Jack Parsons, was an American rocket propulsion researcher at the California Institute of Technology. He was one of the principal founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Aerojet Corp. He was also an occultist and one of the first Americans to take a keen interest in the writings of English author and Thelema's founder Aleister Crowley. In this capacity, he joined and eventually led an American lodge of Crowley's magical order, Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.).[1]

Youth
Parsons was the only child of a rich but dysfunctional family.[citation needed] When he was a teenager his father walked out on his wife and son. Parsons landed a job with the Hercules Powder Company while still a senior in high school. The following year, he entered Pasadena Junior College and spent two years at the University of Southern California, although he did not graduate. Parsons and Helen Northrup were married in April 1935.[2]

Parsons and the Space Age
In 1936, Parsons joined the Guggenheim Aeronautical Laboratory (GALCIT) of the California Institute of Technology, where he worked for Frank Malina and Theodore von Kármán in Pasadena. While his formal education was limited, Parsons demonstrated tremendous scientific aptitude and genius, particularly in chemistry. His rocket research was some of the earliest in the United States, and his pioneering work in the development of solid fuel and the invention of JATO units for aircraft was of great importance to the start of humanity's space age. The noted engineer Theodore von Kármán, Parsons's friend and benefactor, declared that the work of Parsons and his peers helped usher in the age of space travel.[3] Parsons co-founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, commonly referred to as JPL. According to von Kármán, Parsons' work in solid fuel research "... made possible such outstanding rockets as the Polaris and the Minuteman.[4] It was in 1942, the same year Parsons was appointed as head of the Agapé Lodge by Aleister Crowley (who himself had studied chemistry), that Parsons made the crucial breakthrough in the development of rocket solid fuel. Following intuition, Parsons switched from black powder to asphalt and potassium perchlorate.[5] Compared with Peenemünde, America was finally in the race for rocket propulsion with solid fuel for the space age.

Parsons and the occult
Parsons saw no contradiction between his scientific and magical pursuits. Before each rocket test launch, Parsons would chant Crowley's hymn to the Greek god Pan.[6] In 1942 Parsons was chosen by Aleister Crowley to lead Agapé Lodge of OTO in California following Crowley's expulsion of Wilfred Smith from the position.[7] Sara Northrup (aka "Sarah Elizabeth" or "Betty" Northrup), began living with Parsons and Parsons' wife, Sara's half-sister Helen Northrup; later, Parsons and Sara became involved in an affair, which caused strife with Helen and eventually led to Helen leaving with Wilfred Smith. Sara Northrup went on to marry author L. Ron Hubbard, who served as the occasional magical partner of Parsons, and who would later found the Church of Scientology.[citation needed]

Babalon Working and Marjorie Cameron
Parsons, a science fiction fan, had read in the fantasy pulp magazine Unknown the 1940 original shorter version of Jack Williamson "Darker Than You Think". Parsons had identified the redheaded female love interest of the protagonist with Babalon or the "Scarlet Woman", who Crowley had prophesied would help to fulfill the Aeon of Horus and announce to the world the end of the Aeon of Osiris represented by Christianity and other patriarchal religions and social institutions. In 1946, Parsons and Hubbard (whose works Fear and Typewriter in the Sky, among others, had actually appeared in Unknown) participated in a work of ceremonial magic known as the Babalon Working. In simple terms, the Babalon Working was a ritual to summon this Scarlet Woman. Paul Rydeen writes: The purpose of Parson's [sic] operation has been underemphasized. He sought to produce a magickal child who would be a product of her environment rather than of her heredity. Crowley himself describes the Moonchild in just these terms. The Babalon Working itself was preparation for what was to come: a Thelemic messiah.[8] Crowley, who lived in England at this time and had little say over the matter, disagreed strenuously. Though he had never met him, Crowley had no love for Hubbard and considered him a con artist with plans to abscond with Parsons' money and current girlfriend. Almost immediately he met Marjorie Cameron right in his own home, and regarded her as the Scarlet Woman and the fulfillment of the ritual. Parsons, Hubbard, and Cameron then proceeded to the next stage of the Babalon Working in which Cameron acted as Parsons' magical sexual partner with whom he could sire a Moonchild. The creation of this Moonchild had been previously covered in fictional form in Crowley's novel Moonchild. Parsons ended the ritual by declaring it successful. A physical child was not conceived, but this did not affect the results of the ritual, as Parsons and Cameron soon married. In January 1946, Parsons, Sarah Northrup, and Hubbard began a boat dealing company named Allied Enterprises. Parsons put in the sum of approximately $21,000 of which Hubbard contributed $1,200. Just as Crowley had predicted, Hubbard eventually abandoned Parsons and their business plans, leaving for a port in Florida with the boat and with Sarah. Parsons retreated to his hotel room and summoned a typhoon in retribution (viz., with an evocation of Bartzabel[9] — an intelligence presiding over the astrological forces associated with the planet Mars). A Florida court later dissolved the poorly-contracted business, ordered repayment of debts to Parsons, and awarded ownership of the boat to Hubbard. Parsons resigned his leadership of the Agapé Lodge in 1946.

Death
Fritz Zwicky, a member of the original Aerojet team, disliked Parsons, and described him as a "dangerous man". This pronouncement would prove prophetic, at least for Parsons himself. On 17 June 1952 Parsons was killed in an explosion of fulminate of mercury at his home laboratory. Though gravely injured, he survived the immediate explosion, but he died of his wounds a few hours later. Distraught, Parsons' mother killed herself just hours after he died.[3] Unsubstantiated rumors of suicide, murder or a magical ritual gone wrong have attempted to explain Parsons' death. However, Parsons did store many volatile chemicals and compounds in his laboratory and had been working to finish a contract for a special effects firm.[3]

Religious beliefs

Parsons adhered to the religion of Thelema, which had been founded in 1904 by the English occultist Aleister Crowley following a spiritual revelation that he had in the city of Cairo, Egypt, when - according to Crowley's own accounts - a spirit being known as Aiwass dictated to him a prophetic text known as The Book of the Law.[11] On July 31, 1945, he gave a speech to the Agape Lodge in which he attempted to explain how he felt that The Book of the Law could be made relevant to "modern life." In this, which was subsequently published under the title of "Doing your Will", he examined the Thelemite concept of True Will, writing that:
The mainspring of an individual is his creative Will. This Will is the sum of his tendencies, his destiny, his inner truth. It is one with the force that makes the birds sing and flowers bloom; as inevitable as gravity, as implicit as a bowel movement, it informs alike atoms and men and suns. To the man who knows this Will, there is no why or why not, no can or cannot; he IS! There is no known force that can turn an apple into an alley cat; there is no known force that can turn a man from his Will. This is the triumph of genius; that, surviving the centuries, enlightens the world. This force burns in every man.[12]

He identified there as being four obstacles that prevented humans from achieving and performing their True Will, all of which he connected with fear: the fear of incompetence, the fear of the opinion of others, the fear of hurting others, and the fear of insecurity, but he insisted that these must be overcome. He wrote that "The Will must be freed of its fetters. The ruthless examination and destruction of taboos, complexes, frustrations, dislikes, fears and disgusts hostile to the Will is essential to progress."[13]

Politics

Politically, Parsons was a staunch and vocal social libertarian, believing strongly in the personal freedoms of the individual. This was in keeping with his religious adherence to Thelema, which holds to the ethical code of "Do what thou wilt." In his article, Freedom is a Lonely Star, he championed the libertarian social views of some of the founding fathers of the United States, which were enshrined in the American constitution, claiming that by his own time these had been:
sold out by cheap and venal politicians, by benevolent authoritarians, by "loyal" party men, by shrewd and greedy capitalists, by wise guys and smart guys that know all the answers. It has been sold out by the great middle class that prefers its false security and false freedom, by the labor leaders that put power first, and the little man who prefers - at last with at least a decent reason - a full belly, or the promise of a full belly, to freedom turned dangerous and hungry. It has been sold out by America, and for that reason the heart of America is sick and the soul of America is dead.[15]

He went on to criticise many aspects of contemporary American society, including the police, whom he felt "are little more than the agents of a corrupt political machine… [for whom] the collection of revenue and the terrorization of opposition is of far greater importance than the suppression of crime." Believing that "The police mind is usually of a sadistic and homicidal trend", he noted that they carried out the "ruthless punishment of symbolic scapegoats in the form of prostitutes, derelicts, Negroes, radicals, drunks, and other helpless and insignificant members of the nation indivisible" under the pretence of a country that had "liberty and justice for all."[16]

Economically a leftist, Parsons was interested in socialism and communism.[17] Nonetheless, he was sceptical of the leftist ideas of Marxism and how they had been put into action by Marxist governments of the time, sarcastically writing that "The dictatorship of the proletariat is merely temporary - the state will eventually wither away like a snark hunter, leaving us all free as birds [this is a Marxist concept of how a communist society would hypothetically develop]. Meanwhile it may be necessary to kill, torture and imprison a few million people, but whose fault is it if they get in the way of progress?"[18] More specifically, he was critical of the socialist policies instituted in the Soviet Union by the Communist Party under the leadership of Joseph Stalin at the time, believing that like the fascist leaders Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler, they led to the "establishment of concentration camps, the murder and torture of free citizens, and the annihilation of all freedom."[16] He was also a zionist, and was supportive of the early creation of the State of Israel, making plans to emigrate there when his military security clearance was revoked due to his leftist beliefs, something prevented by his death.[17] In order to help bring about a freer society, Parsons believed in bringing about a liberalisation of sexual morality, which at the time was largely constrained by the dominant socially conservative attitudes within the United States. He believed that "The advent of psychonautical sciences and the publication of the Kinsey Report" into sexual diversity had an impact on western society that was "comparable to that of nuclear physics and the advent of the atomic bomb" and that in the future the restrictions on sexual morality within society should be abolished in order to bring about greater freedom and individuality.[19]

"[Parsons] had witnessed the blinding overnight successes achieved by the government-by-terror totalitarianism of Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany. He had the foresight to see that [the United States of] America, once armed with the new powers of total destruction and surveillance that were sure to follow the swelling flood of new technologies, had the potential to become even more repressive unless its founding principles of individual liberty were religiously preserved and its leaders held accountable to them...."

The Mysterious Murder of John P Wheeler III (Part Two)
The murder of Westpoint Grad, DoD Consultant, US CYBERCOM Official and Presidential Aide John P. Wheeler III on December 30, 2010 remains unsolved.  In fact, there has been little to no progress in the investigation since early 2011- that’s if the investigation is still active.  Even in the weeks and months following Wheeler’s body being seen falling from a trash truck at the Cherry Island Landfill near Wilmington, Delaware,  Newark Police Detectives, the lead agency on the case due to where to body was “collected”, progressed slowly on mostly false leads and theories.  Only days after Wheeler’s death was confirmed as a homicide various Law Enforcement and City Council figures made statements that would lead one to think – was this case ever meant to be solved?
...
If Wheeler had just turned up dead, it would still be a tragedy.  But the strange circumstances leading up to his death bring to bare many questions that would not have to be asked if this were a routine homicide. To some, these circumstances seem to fit perfectly into the mold of a killing executed by a clandestine Government Agency attempting to keep secrets obscured from public view. To others, the events would make it seem like the killer(s) had another motive – perhaps some degree of revenge.  Either way, it is clear that this was no random killing. The killer(s) knew exactly who they were “terminating with extreme prejudice”.  Wheeler was, after all, still a very important player at very high levels of Government. Which brings us to the most important question of all – Why did they want him dead?  A solid motive would bring this case closer to being solved…  Something, it seems, the investigators have given up on.
