Virginia Tech Cho shooting Anny ... April 16 2007
« on: April 16, 2017, 09:52:01 am »
Its too bad that in the thread reorg, this story got completely blasted ...
There were some posts about Cho's military connection and the nearby "Total Information Awareness" DARPA DOD center
was Cho being set up to be a mk killer ?

Ft. Hood Shooter Graduated from VA Tech

The gunman that allegedly opened fire at a U.S. Army base at one point lived in Vinton and graduated from Virginia Tech, according to Roanoke Times archives.

 The suspect has been identified as Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, according to Army Lt. Gen. Bob Cone. Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan is the son of Palestinian immigrants and Vinton residents Malik Awadallah Hassan and Hanan Ismail "Nora" Hasan. Nora Hasan ran the now defunct Capitol Restaurant on the Roanoke Market. Hasan's father owned the Mount Olive
...


Virginia Tech is an active partner with DARPA, and the CIA recruits students for 'career sessions'.

Cathy O'Brien, a mind control victim, states that there is a deep underground research laboratory 7000 feet under Butt Mountain in Blacksburg Virginia. The ROTC has numerous dorms in Virginia Tech. Matt Kazzee said that they were conducting drills there. Many Virginia Tech alumni are involved with NASA, which had a suspicious shooting four days after the massacre, on the anniversary of the Columbine black op. The massacre happened during the 'Noble Resolve' drills.

It is very frustrating with the many MK-Ultra style mass shootings that no one has ever been able to prove even one was a planned mk-op.
We just don't have the tools for discernment or investigation powers .

fyi - Virginia tech shooting anny recently came and went ... like the church a no gun zone ...  a mentally disturbed person buys a gun legally or a mistake is made to allow the gun sale - or its an illegal alien who gets a gun illegally or we don't know how ... 

Why should someone with a green card be able to buy a weapon? " Cho was able to pass both background checks and successfully complete both handgun purchases after he presented to the gun dealers his U.S. permanent residency card,"

The pic above WAS on wikipedia but they pulled it a little while ago

Digital Camo is easy to come by..BUT Cho's has a marines nametag on it ..Why does this matter? Because ISSUE Marpat Camo has small globe and anchors mixed into the camo ,it can only be seen close up,I wish i could tell if this was ISSUE from the pic but i would guess that it is, because of the U.S.Marines nametag.....   IF it is ISSUE Marpat what is he doing with it and how did he get it, because its ILLEGAL for civilians to be in possession of ISSUE Marpat BDU's .... And who is his partner next to him there ? If you notice the media has been spelling his name as Cho Seung-Hui..
If you look at the name tag in the pic it says HU ...Vtech has a Marine ROTC program...Cho has some sort of connection to the military

Virginia Tech Shooting Anniversary: How The 2007 Massacre Changed Safety On College Campuses
By Julia Glum @superjulia [email protected]   on April 15 2015 5:21 PM EDT

Virginia Tech senior Seung-Hui Cho sneaked into the West Ambler Johnston residence hall and shot two students on April 16, 2007, at 7:15 a.m. He left, stopped by the post office and later headed to Norris Hall. About two hours later, Cho chained the doors shut and began entering classrooms, killing professors and students before fatally shooting himself in the head. Including Cho, 33 people died that day. More than 20 were wounded.

The Virginia Tech massacre, known as the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history
, motivated colleges and universities to quickly improve the security on their campuses. Administrators have concentrated on updating communications systems, while politicians have changed gun control laws to limit access to firearms by the mentally ill. But eight years later, as state officials debate concealed carry laws, there's still room for improvement, as recent shootings in California and North Carolina show.

"The 2007 mass casualty incident at Virginia Tech was a turning point for a lot of campuses -- or a rallying point," said Gene Deisinger, managing partner at SIGMA Threat Management Associates in Blacksburg, Virginia.

After the shooting, investigators discovered that a judge had ruled Cho was mentally ill in 2005, but his records were never entered into a mental health database that would have prevented him from buying guns. Virginia Tech was criticized for not notifying the campus soon enough after police responded to Cho's first killings in the dorm. The university sent out its first warning at 9:26 a.m., only 14 minutes before the gunman started shooting in Norris Hall.

VIRGINIA TECH STAFF KNEW THAT A FALSE FLAG ATTACK WAS GOING TO HAPPEN!!!!!

VA Tech officials alerted their families, but not public, as shooting unfolded

During the April, 2007, massacre that took the lives of 32 people, officials at Virginia Tech alerted their own family members that a gunman was on the loose, but kept the information from the student body for a full hour-and-a-half, the New York Times reported Friday morning.

The newspaper also stated that a revised report from the university showed that, in one case, officials with the school's Policy Group released students in a residence from a lockdown and allowed them to attend class even as the shooter, Seung Hui-Cho, was still on the loose. Two of the students who were released from lockdown were killed.

The Times reports:

The report indicates that students who were initially locked down at West Ambler Johnston residence hall, where the spree began, were later released from the building by the police and allowed to attend their 9 a.m. classes. Two of those students then went to class in Norris Hall, where they were killed by the shooter.

At least two members of the university’s Policy Group, which was assembled to manage the crisis, let their own families know of the first two shootings, in the residence hall, more than 90 minutes before the group warned the rest of the campus. The new report also says that the university president’s office was locked down about 30 minutes before a formal warning was issued to the rest of the campus.
Story continues below...

[T]he new report said the local police took more than half an hour longer than was initially believed to begin looking for a suspect, a fact first reported by The Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The new report also said university officials failed to contact the family of the shooter’s first victim, Emily Hilscher, for more than three hours, until after she had died. Ms. Hilscher survived for some time after being shot and was transported to two different hospitals before she died.

Some Virginia Tech officials notified families of massacre before notifying campus

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2009/12/some-virginia-tech-officials-notified-families-of-massacre-before-notifying-campus-/1

 USA TODAY's Kevin Johnson has been reading the updated and amended official report issued by Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine on the 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech and sends us this report:

Administrative buildings began shutting down nearly 90 minutes before the first campus-wide alert about the April 2007 shootings that eventually left 32 students and teachers dead.

 According to the report, two unidentified university officials notified their own family members of the first shootings more than an hour before the first alert was issued at 9:26 a.m., April 16.

Campus trash collection was even canceled 21 minutes before students and teachers were warned.

One of the two officials also alerted a colleague in Richmond more than 30 minutes before the campus-wide alert, but cautioned the colleague "to make sure (the information) doesn't get out'' because the university had not yet made an official announcement.

The first warning came more than two hours after the first shootings and just 14 minutes before Seung Hui Cho continued the rampage in a classroom building where some students were shot at their desks in the most deadly campus shooting in U.S. history.

"What happened at Virginia Tech is by its very nature inexplicable, and we may never fully understand the tragic events that transpired that terrible day,'' Kaine said in a written statement Friday. "However, the Commonwealth has remained committed to providing as accurate a factual narrative as possible.''

 Update at 2:32 p.m. ET:   Among the report's most prominent "new findings'' is that student Emily Hilscher, the first victim in the rampage, survived for three hours after the shooting but her parents were not informed about the incident or where she had been taken for treatment until after her death.


Read the official report by clicking here.



Here's some key moments from the time line of the early moments of the shootings.


 5:00 a.m. In Cho's suite in Harper Hall
(2121), one of Cho's suite mates notices Cho
is awake and at his computer.

About 5:30 a.m. One of Cho's other suite mates
notices Cho clad in boxer shorts and a shirt
brushing his teeth and applying acne cream.
Cho returns from the bathroom, gets
dressed, and leaves.

About 6:45 a.m. Cho is spotted by a student loitering
in the foyer area of WAJ resident hall,
between the exterior door and the locked interior
door. He has access to the mailbox
foyer, but not to the interior of the building.

7:02 a.m. Emily Hilscher enters WAJ, her
dorm, after being dropped off by her boyfriend,
Karl Thornhill. (The time is based on
her swipe card record.)

About 7:15 a.m. Cho shoots Hilscher in her room
(4040) where he also shoots Ryan Christopher
Clark, an RA. Clark, it is thought,
most likely came to investigate noises in
Hilscher's room, which is next door to his.
Both of the victims' wounds ultimately prove
to be fatal. Cho exits the scene, leaving behind
bloody footprints and shell casings.

7:20 a.m. The VTPD receives a call on their
administrative telephone line advising that
a female student in room 4040 of WAJ had
possibly fallen from her loft bed. The caller
was given this information by another WAJ
resident near room 4040 who heard the
noise.

7:24 a.m. The VTPD officer arrives at WAJ
room 4040, finds two people shot inside the
room, and immediately requests additional
VTPD resources.

7:30 a.m. Additional VTPD officers begin
arriving at room 4040. They secure the
crime scene and in effect lock down the
dormitory, with police inside and outside.
Police start preliminary investigation...

7:35 a .m. Police on the scene at WAJ say
they need a detective.

7:40 a.m. VTPD Chief Flinchum is notified
by phone of the WAJ shootings. Chief
Flinchum tries repeatedly to reach the Office
of the Executive Vice President.

7:51 a.m. Chief Flinchum contacts the
Blacksburg Police Department (BPD) and
requests a BPD evidence technician and
BPD detective to assist with the investigation.

7:57 a.m. Chief Flinchum finally gets
through to the Virginia Tech Office of the
Executive Vice President and notifies them
of the shootings.

8:00 a.m. Classes begin. Chief Flinchum
arrives at WAJ and finds VTPD and BPD
detectives on the scene ...

About 8:00 a.m. The Virginia Tech Center for
Professional and Continuing Education
locks down on its own.

8:05 a.m. At least two Policy Group
members notify their families of the
shootings.

8:10 a.m. President Steger is notified by a
secretary that there has been a shooting. He tells her to get Chief Flinchum on the
phone.

8:25 a.m. The Police group convenes to plan how to notify students of the double shooting.

Police cancel bank deposit pickup

8:45 a.m. A Policy Group member e-mails a
Richmond colleague saying one student is
dead and another critically wounded.
"Gunman on the loose," he says, adding
"This is not releasable yet."

8:49 a.m. The same Policy Group member
reminds his Richmond colleague, "just try to
make sure it doesn't get out."

8:50 a.m. First period classes end. The Policy
Group begins composing a notice to the
university about the shootings in WAJ. The
Associate Vice President for University Relations, Larry Hincker, is unable to send the
message at first due to technical difficulties
with the alert system.

8:52 a.m. Blacksburg public schools lock
down until more information is available
about the incident at Virginia Tech. School
superintendent notifies school board of this
by e-mail.

The Virginia Tech Government Affairs Director
orders the university president's office
to be locked.

9:00-9:15 a.m. Virginia Tech veterinary college
locks down.

9:01 a.m. Cho mails a package from the
Blacksburg post office to NBC News in New
York that contains pictures of himself holding
weapons, an 1,800-word rambling diatribe,
and video clips in which he expresses
rage, resentment, and a desire to get even
with oppressors. He alludes to a coming
massacre. ..

9:05 a.m. Classes begin for the second
period in Norris Hall.

Virginia Tech trash pickup is canceled.

9:15 a.m. Both police ERTs are staged at
the BPD in anticipation of executing search
warrants or making an arrest.
9:15–9:30 a.m. Cho is seen outside and then
inside Norris Hall, an engineering building,
by several students. He is familiar with the
building because one of his classes meets
there...

 9:24 a.m. A Montgomery County deputy
sheriff initiates a traffic stop of
Hilscher's boyfriend in his pickup truck off
campus. He had heard there had been a
shooting and was driving back to the campus ...

A VTPD police captain joins the Policy
Group as police liaison and provides updates
as information becomes available. He reports
one gunman at large, possibly on foot.

9:26 a.m. Virginia Tech administration
sends e-mail to campus staff, faculty, and
students informing them of the dormitory
shooting.

The rampage also appeared to have been premeditated since the exits in the campus buildings in which the shootings occurred were chained.

The story at that URL was updated Tuesday morning after ATF had "helped" by taking over the firearm forensics analysis Monday night(though the date on the story remained April 16). Again, from Chicago Sun-Times:

"Suspected gunman identified
April 16, 2007
BY MICHAEL SNEED Sun-Times Columnist

The gunman suspected of carrying out the Virginia Tech massacre that left 33 people dead was identified today as Cho Seung-Hui, a 23-year-old South Korean who was a senior at the school.

He was carrying a backpack that contained 9mm clips, two knives and a bag from Dick's Sporting Goods, a source said. The backpack was found near the shooter.

The initial investigation had led law enforcement authorities to a preliminary suspect who was a Chinese national, accompanied by details and a description. The man was placed on the suspect list before fingerprints could be verified. The list in turn was distributed to law enforcement officials via a national network in place to check on possible terrorism in the United States.

Cho was identified following an analysis of fingerprints and ballistics.

Cho was a English major whose creative writing was so disturbing that he was referred to the school’s counseling service.

News reports also said he may have been taking medication for depression.

It turns out forensics identified a totally different person as the V-Tech gunman before the official story concealed around the robotic patsy Cho. From a google cache of the Chicago Sun-Times Monday night
(http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cache:www.suntimes.com/news/343354,vatech041607.article):

"Gunman kills 32 at Virginia Tech before being killed
April 16, 2007
BY MICHAEL SNEED Sun-Times Columnist

Sneed hears authorities were investigating whether the gunman who killed 32 people in a rampage on the Virginia Tech campus was a Chinese national who arrived in the United States last year on a student visa.

The 25-year-old man being investigated for the deadliest college carnage in U.S. history reportedly arrived in San Francisco on a United Airlines flight on Aug. 7, 2006, on a visa issued in Shanghai, the source said. Investigators had not linked him to any terrorist groups, the source added.

The shooter reportedly had multiple handguns with high-capacity magazines, enabling him to kill many students quickly.

Also note that eyewitnesses who survived the slaughter said the gunman was a 6-foot Asian man. Yet the patsy Cho was 5-foot-8, 150 pounds. It is likely that the six-foot Asian gunman was indeed this Chinese man.

Independent investigators in Blacksburg should try to find out who this mysterious might have been -- was there anyone fitting this description in Blacksburg over the last several who may have had access to the campus? An employee of the University perhaps?

Disturbingly, this information implies that the Chinese Communists in the People's Liberation Army are actively working with elements of the American military-intelligence complex in conducting murderous operations on American soil.

Virginia Tech Shooter's Psych Doctor Hid Mental Health Records for Seung-Hui Cho (correction)
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

source

(NaturalNews) New revelations about the mental "treatment" of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho are surfacing today after the surprise discovery of his mental health records in the home of the former university psych doctor who treated him. These mental health records -- which have not yet been made public -- have been missing since the shooting took place. Dr. Robert C. Miller, we now know, took the records home and secretly kept them there, avoiding telling police about their location. They were only found during a document discovery phase of a pending trial.

The fact that these records were taken from the university, then hidden in the home of the psych doctor who treated the victim, and then were not even found by a Governor-appointed commission (which never even bothered to interview Dr. Miller) seems almost unbelievable.

Parents of the shooting victims feel the same way. "Deception comes to my mind in my first response," said parent Suzanne Grimes in an AP article. "It gives me the impression, 'What else are they hiding?'"

"What information is in those records?" asked parent Lori Haas. (Her daughter was also wounded in the shootings.)

"The words that come to mind are coverup, collusion, obstruction," said parent Mike Pohle in a Washington Post report. (His son was also killed in the incident.) "I'm spinning. Who knows what could be in those records?" he asked.

In 2007, when the university was conducting an exhaustive search for the records, Dr. Robert C. Miller claimed he didn't know where they were. Virginia State Police are now investing whether a crime was committed by Dr. Miller. (Removing mental health records and hiding them in your home is, indeed, a crime.)

But this isn't even the most shocking part of this story...

Dr. Robert C. Miller was part of the incident response team
Through documents acquired through the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (www.CCHR.org) NaturalNews has learned that Dr. Robert C. Miller served as a "substitute Incident Commander" for the response team dispatched to deal with the aftermath of the April 16 shootings. This information is confirmed through Dr. Miller's own resume, in which he lists the incident under the heading, "Administrative, Consultation and Leadership Experience."

Specifically, page 7 of a resume document available through the American Psychology Association website www.APAPO.com reveals the following resume items for Dr. Miller: [emphasis added]

2002-2006 Led transition of psychiatry service to Cook Counseling Center from Schiffert Student Health. Added nurse practitioner and LPN to staff and instituted “Pharmacy Connection” program to provide medication to students unable to pay for prescription medications

2002-2006 Coordinated bringing ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) program to Virginia Tech to train faculty and staff in suicide prevention

2002-2006 Member, Schiffert Student Health Leadership Team

2002-2006 Member, Division of Student Affairs Administrative Team

2004 Member, Search Committee, Director Schiffert Student Health Center

2004 Liaison to ULifeline, online suicide prevention for college students

2005 Chair, Search Committee, Chief of Staff Division of Student Affairs

2005 Member, Campus and Workplace Violence Policy Task Force, Virginia Tech

2006 Founded Chapter of “Active Minds” at Virginia Tech (national student leadership development program to increase awareness about mental health issues on college and university campuses). Collaborated with Psi Chi, Department of Psychology and Counselor Education to develop program

2007 Member, Human Resources response team to April 16 shootings. Served as substitute Incident Commander 2007-present Member, ADA Executive Committee, Virginia Tech

2007-present Member, Medical Education Committee, Internship and Residency Program, Montgomery Regional Hospital

This information is not yet being reported by the mainstream media. (They are apparently unaware of this connection.)

What this reveals is that the very same psych doctor who "treated" Cho, and then who hid his mental health records in his home, and then lied about hiding them was also the very same person who served as the Substitute Incident Commander in an incident response team that dealt with the Cho shooting aftermath.

Are you starting to connect the dots here?

The big mental health coverup
What, exactly is in those mental health records that Dr. Miller hid in his home for two years? And why did he lie about hiding them in his home, only later to reveal them during the discovery phase of court proceedings?

And why was this same person allowed to serve as a substitute Incident Commander on the incident response team? Is it possible that Cho's fear of Dr. Miller was one of the reasons he lashed out by killing 30 other students and shooting himself? Could Dr. Miller now be somehow implicated in the death of all these students?

For the moment, these questions are only speculation, but they are questions that need to be asked (and answered). Dr. Miller has apparently committed at least one criminal act by removing Cho's mental health medical records and hiding them in his home for two years. Is it possible he could have been engaged in other unethical activities such as acquiring psychiatric drugs for Cho, or neglecting to warn appropriate officials about Cho's risk to fellow students?

It seems clear that a massive coverup was, indeed, perpetrated in this case. As Lucinda Roy, an English professor at Virginia Tech, explained in a Washington Post report, "the late and mysterious reappearance of the records adds to concern that the university has been more concerned with preserving its reputation than with providing the public with a thorough account of how Cho's case was handled."

It is, of course, in the interests of the university to sweep this issue under the rug and make sure no wrongdoing from the resident psych doctor ever comes to light. This might be part of the reason why Dr. Miller was never even interviewed by a state-appointed investigative commission. Virginia Tech, it seems, might prefer these medical records stay hidden.

Among the things they probably would not want to make public might be medical records showing Dr. Miller encouraged or supported Cho's continued taking of psychiatric medications. This is speculation at this point, but it's a definite possibility that needs to be investigated (and which hasn't been yet).

Clearly, the psych drug connection needs to be explored here in more detail: Most school shootings in the U.S. are conducted by students who are put on dangerous psychiatric medications such as SSRI drugs. (Listen to my hip hop song SSRIs - S.S.R.Lies to hear more: http://www.naturalnews.com/SSRIs_S_... )

In the Virginia Tech shootings, there was no investigation whatsoever into Cho's psychiatric medication use, nor was there any toxicological analysis performed on his body to determine whether he was taking psychiatric medications. Is this the smoking gun that will be found in Cho's medical records -- that he was on antidepressant drugs at the time he shot and killed 30 people, then turned the gun on himself?

A call for investigations into school shootings
CCHR has repeatedly warned that the withdrawal from psychiatric medications can be extremely dangerous, causing patients to become psychotic and violent. In fact, the human rights organization has called for a federal investigation of all school shootings to determine the role that psychiatric drugs have played in these traumatic and deadly events.

CCHR posts numerous hard-hitting, free online video documentaries revealing disturbing details about the psychiatric industry. Watch Where the Truth Lies here: http://www.cchr.org/#/videos/where-...

Or see the Making A Killing video here: http://www.cchr.org/#/videos/making...

You can also follow CCHR on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/CCHRint

Help support CCHR's ongoing investigations into the criminal world of psych doctors and psychiatric medication. There is a cause behind our nation's school shootings, and that cause is Big Pharma's mind-altering drugs. Our children are victimized twice by this scandal: Once when they are put on these drugs and harmed by them, and then a second time when they are terrorized or killed by fellow students who go on deadly shooting rampages after their own psychiatric medications cause their brains to snap.

If we want the school shootings to stop, we must first stop the mass drugging of our children, teens and young adults.

[Correction note: The first publication of this story inadvertently stated that the incident response team was "armed." Although the police response team was clearly armed, we could not independently verify whether Dr. Miller was on the armed team that responded to the event, so we made the correction to remove "armed" from this story. We have later verified that Dr. Miller was on the incident response team for the aftermath of the incident, not on the armed law enforcement team that responded to the incident.

The Virginia Tech Massacre And Numerology/Symbolism

Let's take a look at the Tech Massacre. It's notable that the logo of Virginia Tech is the color of blood. One wonders if this is of any significance. It may be because Virginia Tech was a blood sacrifice, as Columbine was. When black ops are conducted, numerology is usually involved, because the New World Order is run by occultists. Key Masonic numbers are 3, 7, 8, 11, 13, and Multiples of them, as well as the infamous 33, the highest degree of Freemasonry. For an example of numerology being involved in covert ops, look at 9/11, The London Bombings, and the Minneapolis Bridge Collapse. 9+1+1=11. A Masonic number. 9/11 contains two masonic numbers.. 9 and 11! Flight 175 was the plane that allegedly hit the South Tower. 1+7+5=13. Masonic number. Flight 77 is two 7s.. Flight 93 is a multiplication of 3. 31 3s go into 93, and 31 is a degree of Freemasonry. Only two degrees less than 33, the highest degree. The 20 dollar bill depicts representations of both attacks. The London Bombings involved Kings Cross, Russell Square, Tavistock Square. The Kings Cross is a Masonic symbol. Charles Taze Russell was a Freemason who's tomb was an All Seeing Eye which had a Kings Cross on it. The Square is an important Masonic symbol as well, and Tavistock is home to the Tavistock Institute, located on Tabernacle Street (Tabernacle also goes into Freemasonry), and the Tavistock Institute is the world center for subliminal mind control. The bus that was bombed was No.30, and there were 3 other trains. 3+30=33, the highest degree of Freemasonry. The blood sprinkled all over the wall of the Institute-linked Tavistock Clinic in a ritualistic fashion (Blood is sprinkled on the Altar in ritualistic sacrifices), sacrificing 13 lives in the blast. The bus had an advertisement on it that said OUTRIGHT TERROR.. which had FOUR stars. The Minneapolis Bridge Collapse.. I35W was the bridge that collapsed. I=1 in Roman numerals, so 1+3+5=9. The bridge collapsed on 8/1. 8+1=9. So, the bridge collapsed on 9 (A Masonic number for the apocalypse) at 6:05. 6+0+5=11. So the bridge collapsed on 9 at 11, and it went down in the TWIN cities. It also collapsed much like Building 7.. Symmetrically.

Also, notice how many of these blood sacrifices happen around this time of year. On April 20th, Columbine was attacked, allegedly by two students, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris. On April 19, The Waco Massacre occurred, On another April 19, the OKC Federal building was bombed, The W.R Myers School Shooting on April 28, The Madrid Bombings on March 11, The Red Lake Massacre March 21, Jonesboro Massacre happened on March 24.

All of these were government-executed operations for dark agendas. The March-April time of year seems to be a time these blood sacrifices take place. In Columbine, the ATF was witnessed inside the building, killing students, and Eric Harris had lived at an air force base linked to mind control projects before moving to Littleton. In Waco, significant evidence surfaced indicating that the police shot first. Moving on to the OKC bombing, explosives were found inside the building, and the ATF office was empty that morning, in addition, the ATF had shown up in full bomb gear that takes 30 mins to put on within minutes of the attack, and responding agents said they were tipped off not to come in that day. The name of the shooter in the Myers shooting was never released, but the shooter was reported to have shot people point blank..The shooter was unable to attend trial due to mental problems caused by a 'coma', but he was taken to court after a 'remarkable recovery'..The shooter wore a blue trench coat in an obvious mimic of Columbine, and the shooting happened only eight days after Columbine. The Madrid Bombings proved to be an inside job, as the bombers were linked to Spanish security forces and there was a clear numerological link to 9/11 (It happened 911 days after the attacks of 9/11, in what is too amazing to be a coincidence. It was another ritualistic black op.). In The Red Lake Massacre, a second gunman was detained and covered up, none of the video evidence was released, the FBI report was kept secret, unmarked black vans had been reported to have been showing up at the year before, five fulltime FBI agents are now permanently stationed in Red Lake with support from the field office, initial reports spoke of the school being 'covered in blood' (In ritualistic sacrifices, the blood is sprinkled on the altar), Weise talked of 'dreams' he had on ATS which were major indications of mind control (In one dream a canine is attacking him, and he is told to 'shoot' by a mysterious voice, then his whole body is shaking with gunfire all around him. In another post, he describes having 'clips' and 'flashbacks' of Nazi Germany, and remembers that in some of these, he was in parades, in others he was in combat scenarios). The Jonesboro Massacre had the two shooters driving a van to school IN MILITARY CAMO and believed they were shooting over the heads of their victims.

As you can see, the March-April period seems to be a time where blood sacrifices are to take place. 4 days after the Virginia Tech Massacre, there was the NASA Space Center shooting. The gunman was an employee of Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., a NASA contractor involved in United Defense and Intelligence Ops, and they refused to give out any information about the gunman, William Phillips, who was a good employee 'up until recently' according to a spokesman (Mind control, probably). It is also an interesting connection that many of the Virginia Tech students were connected to NASA.

The shooting happened on 4/16/07! 4+1+6+7=18. 18 is made up of three 6s. Just divide 18 by 6 and you get 3. 666. Cho used a 9mm and a .22! 9+2+2=13. 9+22=31. 31 is a Masonic degree, and it is 13 in reverse! Masonic number The first shooting happened at 7:15! 7+1+5=13! Masonic number!

Cho killed himself after killing 32 people. That brought the death toll to 33. 33 is the highest degree of Freemasonry!

The attack happened only 4 days before Hitler's birthday, he first peeked into a German classroom, and a Jewish holocaust survivor was killed in the massacre. A symbolic connection to the monstrous Adolf Hitler.

Two different papers read 'Mind' on the front and '7' on the back. There are 7 circuits in the brain, and one of the papers was an advertisement for sleeping drugs. This is symbolic indication of mind control. The global elite control the papers, and leave clues for symbolic value in the papers. Sleeping drugs indicates that they were a drugged sleeper, a Manchurian Candidate. Also note the Masonic value of the number 7.

The information about Virginia Tech was brought to my attention by this man: http://youtube.com/watch?v=fQMHHUCKvhA

His video is quite worth watching.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Virginia Tech victims' families affected twice, no charges for missing records

No charges in disappearance of Va. Tech records
http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gZ3-gm8_MhOb8dfElFYUFb0Q57WgD9A7H1600
(AP) – 8 hours ago

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. — The former director of Virginia Tech's counseling center will not face criminal charges for taking the Virginia Tech gunman's mental health records.

Montgomery County Commonwealth's Attorney Brad Finch said Friday that Robert Miller did not appear to have violated any law when he took home records for Seung-Hui Cho's (sung wee joh).

Miller says he found the records for Cho and several other students last month with personal items he packed up as he left his job.

Miller left Cook Counseling Center in February 2006, more than a year before Cho killed 32 people as well as himself on the Blacksburg campus.

Gov. Tim Kaine asked Virginia State Police to investigate Miller's action.

Finch says state police concluded Miller didn't appear to have acted with criminal intent.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Colorado Shooting Most Likely A NorthCom / Fusion Center Psy Op

I found this document from the Naval Monterey Post Graduate School (where some of the 9/11 hijackers were trained) Interesting ...

http://www.hsdl.org/?view&did=33351

NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL

PROTECTING SMALL COMMUNITIES THROUGH DOMESTIC POLICING:
ADOPTING AN EARLY WARNING SYSTEM TO RECOGNIZE POTENTIAL TERRORIST ACTIVITY

...

Intelligence-led policing is a “collaborative enterprise based on improved  intelligence operations, community policing, and problem solving.”31 Through intelligence-led policing, police can access criminal and personal databases, such as  public library or credit card records. Limitations associated with this model are that it often only identifies the suspects for investigation. Some criticism of intelligence-led policing is the approach can raise issues surrounding infringement of privacy, racial profiling, and government harassment. In contrast, outcome based policing uses only criminal databases as part of its intelligence operations. Adopted from the crime triangle, outcome based policing is a multi-prong approach that identifies suspects, potential victims, and possible target locations to solve crime and prevent terrorism. With respect to intelligence-led policing, outcome based policing is a process driven by behaviorbased
indicators of suspicious or criminal activity
.

To combat terrorism effectively, law enforcement must change their antiquated ideologies that are counter productive to
terrorism prevention. The federal government and state agencies must dispense with the myth that contemporary policing is not an effective method for preventing terrorism. The same outcome driven standards used to fight crime can be successful in disrupting or
deterring terrorist activity.


Process: Threat Recognition

Output:  Public Safety Assessment Triangle

Neuroscience, National Security & the "War on Terror"

by Tom Burghardt

Global Research, July 29, 2008

Antifascist Calling...

Antifascist Calling...

Operating with little ethical oversight, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been tapping cutting-edge advances in neuroscience, computers and robotics in a quest to build the "perfect warfighter."

Dovetailing precisely with other projects to "dominate" the urban "battlespace" of global south and "homeland" cities, DARPA researchers are stretching moral boundaries where clear distinctions between "human" and "machine" are being consciously blurred. (see "Simulating Urban Warfare" and "America's Cyborg Warriors")

As the Center for Cognitive Liberty & Ethics warns,

The right of a person to liberty, autonomy, and privacy over his or her own intellect is situated at the core of what it means to be a free person. This principle is what gives life to some of our most well-established and cherished rights. Today, as new drugs and other technologies are being developed for augmenting, monitoring, and manipulating mental processes, it is more important than ever to ensure that our legal system recognizes and protects cognitive liberty as a fundamental right. (CCLE, "Frequently Asked Questions," September 15, 2003)

Not only is the right to "liberty, autonomy, and privacy" being undermined by militarizing the life sciences, but the legal system itself is ill-equipped to deal with advances--and emerging threats--to "cognitive liberty" as America's corporatist surveillance state seek new means to elicit compliance and control over individuals as biological science is securitized under the rubric of "national security."

In Mind Wars: Brain Research and National Defense (Dana Press, 2006), bioethicist Jonathan Moreno lays out a frightening scenario where various Pentagon agencies with DARPA leading the charge, have been funding neuroscientific and biological research in the following areas:

Mind-machine interfaces, also called "neural prosthetics." Living robots" whose movements can be controlled via brain implants. Research has successfully been carried out on "roborats" and "robodogs" for mine clearing and other dubious purposes. "Cognitive feedback helmets" that provide commanders or their medical surrogates the ability to remotely view an individual soldiers' mental state. MRI and fMRI technologies for what has been called "brain fingerprinting" as an interrogation tool or airport screening for "terrorists." So-called "non-lethal" pulse weapons and other neurodisruptors for deployment in global south or "homeland" cities as "riot control" tools. "Neuroweapons" that use biological agents to stimulate the release of neurotoxins. Research into concocting new pharmaceuticals that inhibit the urge to eat, sleep, suppress fear, or repress psychological inhibitions against killing.

With a multibillion dollar budget and dozens of projects in the pipeline, DARPA's Defense Sciences Office (DSO) are looking for newer and ever-more insidious means "to harness biology" for military applications. A short list of DSO projects include the following:

* Biological Sensory Structure Emulation (BioSenSE), a program "designed around the concept of understanding biological sensory structures through advanced characterization and emulating, or transferring, this knowledge to the creation of superior synthetic sensors." The majority of biological stimuli are deemed of "great military relevance" by Darpacrats.

* Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System (CTTWS), the intent of which is to integrate "advances in technology and biology" for a "soldier-portable" visual threat detection device that will utilized "cognitive visual processing algorithms" and "operator neural signature detection."

* Fundamental Laws of Biology (FLB), is described as a mathematical modeling program that "will impact DoD and national security by developing a rational and predictive basis for doing biological research to combat bioterrorism, maintain healthy personnel, and discover new vaccines and medicines"--or to facilitate the design of new biological weapons.

* Nano Air Vehicle (NAV), described by program managers as as a project that "will develop and demonstrate an extremely small (less than 7.5 cm), ultra-lightweight (less than 10 grams) air vehicle system with the potential to perform indoor and outdoor military missions. The program will explore novel, bio-inspired, conventional and unconventional configurations to provide the warfighter with unprecedented capability for urban mission operations." Paging John Anderton, white courtesy telephone!

* Neovision "will pursue an integrated approach to the object recognition pathway in the brain. This fundamental biological research will be accomplished using methods intentionally geared toward computational and modeling approaches that are amenable to hardware- and software-based implementations."

* Peak Soldier Performance (PSP) is designed to "create technologies that allow the warfighter to maintain peak physical and cognitive performance despite the harsh battlefield environment." In other words, develop drugs and nutrients for a "more efficient" soldier.

* Preventing Sleep Deprivation (PSD) is described as seeking to "enhance operational performance," under harsh conditions. Current approaches "under investigation" include "novel pharmaceuticals that enhance neural transmission, nutraceuticals that promote neurogenesis, cognitive training, and devices such as transcranial magnetic stimulation."

* Training Superiority (DARWARS), a suite of programs directly tying the military-industrial and entertainment complexes together into a seamless web. DARWARS seeks to provide "continuously available, on-demand, mission-level training for all forces at all echelons. Specifically, the program is developing, in areas of high military importance, new kinds of cognitive training systems that include elements of human-tutor interactions and the emotional involvement of computer games coupled with the feedback of Combat Training Center learning." Continuous "on-demand training anywhere, anytime, for everyone."

As with all dual-use research conducted by the agency, military relevance trump all other considerations. One need only examine the use of psychological research in the "war on terror" for some very troubling analogies.

AugCog

If behavioral psychology was handmaid to the horrors perpetrated at Guantánamo Bay, Abu Ghraib and CIA transnational "black sites," what new nightmares are in store for humanity when advances in neuroscience, complex computer algorithms and a secretive national security state enter stage (far) right? Let's take a look.

Amy Kruse, Ph.D., is described on DARPA's website as the creator of the concept of "operational neuroscience," designing programs that "are helping transform neuroscience from a laboratory discipline to one that is doing advanced research to deliver revolutionary capabilities important to our warfighters."

DSO's "Training and Human Effectiveness" brief claims this suite of programs is "revolutionizing training...for everyone, anywhere, and at any time." Kruse's area of expertise is "AugCog" or augmented cognition, a subset of neuroscientific research seeking models for a "brain-machine interface." Described by the Augmented Cognition International Society (ACI) as

an emerging field of science that seeks to extend a user's abilities via computational technologies, which are explicitly designed to address bottlenecks, limitations, and biases in cognition and to improve decision making capabilities. The goal of AugCog science and technology is to develop computational methods and neurotech tools that can account for and accommodate information processing bottlenecks inherent in human-system interaction (e.g., limitations in attention, memory, learning, comprehension, visualization abilities, and decision making). ("What is Augmented Cognition?" ACI, no date) [emphasis added]

According to DARPA's description of the program, Improving Warfighter Information Intake Under Stress (AugCog):

Military operators must frequently perform cognitively demanding tasks in stressful environments. The AugCog Program has developed technologies to mitigate sensory or cognitive overload and restore operational effectiveness by extending the information management capacity of the warfighter. This is accomplished through closed-loop computational systems that adapt to the state of the warfighter and thereby significantly improve performance.

The exploitation of human and other biological systems by DARPA raise profoundly troubling questions of how these security-related applications will be used by the United States to achieve global dominance at any and all cost. A recent article in Military Geospatial Technology reveal the technophilic preoccupations that obsess securocrats.

Imagine a computer that can read human brain waves to assess the lay of the land. It might seem futuristic, but that's what the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency [NGA] had partially in mind when they awarded contracts under DARPA's Urban Reasoning and Geospatial Exploitation Technology (URGENT) program. (Cheryl Gerber, "Seeing with Your Brain," Military Geospatial Technology, Vol. 6, Issue 3, June 5, 2008)

One of URGENT's "prime contractors, major defense grifter Lockheed Martin, call their "approach to the program Object Recognition via Brain-inspired Technology," (ORBIT). In conjunction with DARPA's URGENT program, the AugCog project is based on brain-inspired software that seeks to merge neuroscience with computers to create a technology that promises to deliver "situational awareness" to the "warfighter." But building complex 3-D mapping systems is merely the initial jump-off point for what may come once "brain-inspired" algorithms are "perfected."

One "product" that currently aids the "warfighter" and "counterterrorist" officials is called Signature Analyst, designed by corporate grifter SPADAC, a McClean, Virginia defense contractor with close ties to the Department of Homeland Security and the the NGA. According to SPADAC's website, Signature Analyst

delivers enhanced objectivity by discerning subtle yet powerful and actionable insights, maximizing likelihood of success. Combining predictive analytics with spatial information as well as human terrain and social networking elements, the solution delivers effective consequence modeling and improved confidence in decisions for a range of global operational and business challenges.

The program claims it provides "situational awareness" by "finding commonalities" and "relationships" in distinct, seemingly disparate data sources, including past events, as well as "human terrain" and "social networking" information. As we have described previously, Scaleable Social Network Analysis was a data-mining tool designed by DARPA's Total Information Awareness office that worked in tandem with the National Security Agency's illegal spying programs.

One shudders to imagine what "consequences" DARPA and their corporate "partners" are "modeling." A commercial version of the "product" is in the works. One "benefit" of the Signature Analyst software trumpeted by SPADAC is that will "allow fewer analysts to evaluate more data in less time." Why its the perfect "predictive" tool for the current capitalist downturn!

Carrying the mechanistic human/machine model a step further, Lockheed Martin and their "partner" Numenta, a California-based software company, are working on applications for the Defense Department. According to Numenta's website, company founder Jeff Hawkins, author of the 2004 book On Intelligence, has "a deep interest in neuroscience and theories of the neocortex." We bet he does!

Indeed, Hawkins' team has designed a suite of software applications, the Numenta Platform for Intelligent Computing (NuPIC), based on what it calls "hierarchical temporal memory (HTM)," a "computing paradigm" that mimics the structure and function of the human neocortex, the area of the brain that handles high-level thought.

John Darvill ORBIT's chief investigator described Lockheed's relationship with Numenta to Military Geospatial Technology thusly: "Lockheed has been involved with Numenta technology for two years and is a member of the Numenta Partner Program for technical interchange. We have a collaborative technical relationship with Numenta. We use their technology, modify it and apply it."

How? According to Numenta CEO Donna Dubinsky, HTM is designed to "be good at what the human brain can do--inference and pattern recognition even in the presence of noise." In a similar fashion, HTM "learns a model of the world" Dubinsky elaborated, "by exposure through its senses. In the same way, our software is self-learning and has to be exposed to the material that it has to learn. So we train the software. For example, we expose it to a lot of tanks so it learns tank-ness."

And if the software could be applied to an interrogation archetype, will it then "self-learn" how to "model" a sensory deprivation or psychological torture regimen, individually tailored to an "illegal enemy combatant" after it has been "exposed to the material"? Will the software in other words, be exposed "to a lot of torture so it learns torture-ness"?

Technological dual-use is a slippery slope towards atrocity and unimaginable horror, especially if left in the hands of American militarists.

Back to the Future

Here precisely, lies the crux of the problem of exploiting neuroscience and robotics in a quest for newer and ever more insidious military applications. The potential of neurologically interactive technologies to "enhance" human capabilities, indeed to invade the privacy of human thought, and infringe on the independence of our minds for "reasons of state," transform biological/medical research into a subset of weapons development.

To be sure, science, and in particular the cognitive sciences, have been seduced by the Pentagon and the CIA in the past. The literature on unethical CIA and Army research into quixotic quests for "mind control" over "enemy" agents and "target" populations--MKULTRA and their perverse offspring--are replete with the horror stories of their abused victims. Indeed, MKULTRA became the ideologically-charged basis for current interrogation and torture practices by the CIA, the military and their "outsourced" partners.

A perusal of the Company's seminal interrogation manuals, KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation and the Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual-1983 drew liberally from the most up-to-date cognitive research of its time. Indeed, many of the sources cited in KUBARK and HRE were leading behavioral psychologists and psychiatrists "under contract" to the CIA, as documented by historians and researchers John Marks (The Search for the Manchurian Candidate), Alfred W. McCoy (A Question of Torture) and Christopher Simpson (Science of Coercion).

Indeed, as Simpson avers in Science of Coercion, the Human Ecology Fund, a CIA cut-out funneling money to prestigious academics such as Albert Biderman, underwrote research on "captivity behavior" and the efficacy "of drugs, electroshock, violence, and other coercive techniques during interrogation of prisoners."

Fast forward to the present. As anthropologist Hugh Gusterson writes regarding current Pentagon interest in neuroscientific research today,

individual scientists will tell themselves that, if they don't do the research, someone else will. Research funding will be sufficiently dominated by military grant makers that it will cause some scientists to choose between accepting military funding or giving up their chosen field of research. And the very real dual-use potential of these new technologies (the same brain implant can create a robosoldier or rehabilitate a Parkinson's disease sufferer) will allow scientists to tell themselves that they are "really" working on health technologies to improve the human lot, and the funding just happens to come from the Pentagon. ("The Militarization of Neuroscience," Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 9 April 2007)

In the final analysis, DARPA, the Pentagon agency that brought us the internet, are now searching for the means to militarize the human mind itself, viewed as the ultimate platform for imperialist domination and social control.

At Booz Allen, a Vast U.S. Spy Operation, Run for Private Profit
By MATTHEW ROSENBERGOCT. 6, 2016

Booz Allen Hamilton, with its headquarters located in McLean, Va., has made billions from its contracting business with the American intelligence community. Credit Kevin Lamarque/Reuters 
 
WASHINGTON — In the six weeks since federal agents raided a suburban Maryland home and arrested Harold T. Martin III on suspicion of stealing classified information from the National Security Agency, another organization has quietly prepared to face the fallout: Booz Allen Hamilton, Mr. Martin’s employer.

Booz Allen, a consulting firm that earns billions of dollars by working for American intelligence agencies, has been called the world’s most profitable spy organization. News this week of Mr. Martin’s arrest in August could renew scrutiny of the firm’s operations and, more broadly, the lucrative contracting business that American intelligence now relies on to run its vast, global surveillance operations.

Mr. Martin’s arrest is the second time in three years that a Booz Allen contractor has been accused of stealing potentially damaging material from the N.S.A. The company also employed Edward J. Snowden, who spirited out a cache of documents that, in 2013, exposed the extent of American surveillance programs in the United States and around the world.

Privatized criminal MIC/IIC - Booz Allen Hamilton - I wield the sword of truth

Source

The following outfits have locations in Fairfax County, VA (location of Falls Church * see links at end of text - taken from this link):

Boeing Autometric, Inc.
Booz Allen Hamilton
Mitretek Systems
National Imagery & Mapping Agency
National Reconnaissance Office
Northrop Grumman Information Technology
SAIC
SI International
The MITRE Corporation

Let's take a look at these one at a time.

Boeing Automatic MUST have to do with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV's), which is the predominant new tool used on September 11, 2001. They are so good at what they do that NOW they can't keep unmanned aerial vehicles on the shelf. As well, some three weeks after 9-11, China bought FOUR HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS worth of those very jets.

Booz, Allen, & Hamilton produced the most recent director of the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) who was took his job one month before 9-11. Booz-Allen also has connections to Ptech, a company that was investigated regarding 9-11 but that story was squashed. Ptech also had/has connections to Mitre Corporation which is heavily implicated in 9-11.



Mitretek [INSERT: Now Noblis] is, like Mitre Corporation, a spinoff of MIT's Lincoln Laboratories. Seems MIT was, during the time, spawning devil children left and right. NIMA (the "eyes of the nation") seems to have been key to pulling off 9-11 as the data provided for real time processing, as Mitre Corp.'s AMSTE program promises to do, come mostly from NIMA.

The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) put a satellite in orbit on September 8, 2001 and three days later, miraculously, they would be conducting a joint "simulation" of just the sort of events that transpired during Operation Two Towers. I can't wait for some Saudi-hacker theory.

Northrop Grumman is the originator of Global Hawk systems (a system of remote pilotting). SAIC, like Mitre Corporation and TRW (NRO contractor), have had on their boards one John Deutch. SI International provides information management for USSPACECOM (NORAD) and USSTRATCOM. See the following snips:

SI International, Inc., an information technology and network solutions (IT) company, announced today that it has a subcontract with SAIC, under the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) Systems and Missions Support (USAMS) Blanket Purchase Agreement contract (BPA). The company will provide technical engineering and analysis services that support the information operations mission at Headquarters U.S. Strategic Command, Offutt AFB, NE. Click here for more.

June 9, 2003: S.I. International Inc. of Reston won a contract valued at $24 million over eight years from the Defense Department to provide military communications satellite engineering, analysis and database support. For more click here.

As a technical support contractor for Headquarters AFSPC, Headquarters United States Space Command (USSPACECOM), Headquarters North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), SI International has established itself as a recognized industry expert in military space systems and C4ISR operational architecture development and maintenance. For more click here.


"The AEHF program is the next generation of highly secure, high capacity, survivable communications to the U.S. warfighters during all levels of conflict, and will become the protected backbone of the Department of Defense's military satellite communications architecture. It is slated for launch in 2007 (illustration only)"

.....the militarization of space is intimately linked with US strategic nuclear forces, for the previous command covering space, known as Space Command, has merged with the command responsible for nuclear forces, Strategic Command. Upon merger, the commander of Strategic Command stated, "United States Strategic Command provides a single war fighting combatant command with a global perspective, focused on exploiting the strong and growing synergy between the domain of space and strategic capabilities."

SI International, Inc., an information technology and network solutions (IT) company, announced today that it has a subcontract with SAIC, under the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) Systems and Missions Support (USAMS) Blanket Purchase Agreement contract (BPA). The company will provide technical engineering and analysis services that support the information operations mission at Headquarters U.S. Strategic Command, Offutt AFB, NE.

........For more than twelve years, SI International has served as a contractor for the military space community including Headquarters North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), Headquarters Air Force Space Command (AFSPC), Headquarters Army Space Command (ARSPACE), and United States Space Command (USSPACECOM) - now United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM). In addition, SI International has supported the Spacelift Range Systems, Range Standardization and Automation, military satellite communication (Milsatcom) systems, and the Air Force Satellite Control Network since 1996.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

SAIC, of course, keeps turning up in searches related to John Deutch, Mitre Corporation, TRW, and other outfits associated with the satellite technologies needed to pull off 9-11, the same technologies (dontcha know) that SI International works on.

SI International, with its contracts with USSPACECOM and USSTRATCOM, would seem to have had to been key in Operation Two Towers. USSTRATCOM was where Warren Buffet sat with several CEO's from the WTC on September 11 and it is where Bush flew to immediately upon being told of the attacks. [Sources 1 & 2] Warren Buffet, by the way, is a peddler of Global Hawk systems (remote pilotting) with two companies, Mitre Corporation (a non-profit - ? - with its roots in MIT's Lincoln Laboratories) and Berkshire-Hathaway, producer of BizJets and NetJets, planes that many of the rich and powerful fly in. USSPACECOM (NORAD) is responsible for preventing anything like 9-11 from happening which they have always been excellent at except when it counted. Sounds rather conspiratorial TO ME.

In July 2002 SI International received a four and one-half year, $1.9 million award to provide technical, engineering, and consulting services in support of the Headquarters Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) Military Satellite Communications Systems Division. As the prime contractor, SI International supports the transition and conversion from current satellite communication systems to Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) and the National Strategic Satellite Communications System (NSSS). SI International will provide technical analysis, consulting and engineering assistance services in support of AFSPC; guidance on the Transformational Communications Study (TCS); and, transition and terminal interoperability analysis for the NSSS Implementation plan. Specifically, SI International will develop a NSSS network transition plan highlighting critical paths and design a satellite communications system transition database. For more click here.

The SBR system is a transformational system for DoD and national intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. SBR is designed to deliver extraordinary capability to gain real-time information on any potential adversary, locale or theater. The system is intended to be able to track moving targets, produce high-resolution synthetic aperture radar images, produce high-resolution terrain information, and to provide data and other radar and radio frequency products.

Booz, Allen, and Hamilton Awareness

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which oversees the Total Information Awareness System (TIA), awarded 13 contracts to Booz Allen & Hamilton amounting to more than $23 million. Lockheed Martin Corporation had 23 contracts worth $27 million; the Schafer Corporation had 9 contracts totaling $15 million. Other prominent contractors involved in the TIA program include SRS Technologies, Adroit Systems, CACI Dynamic Systems, Syntek Technologies, and ASI Systems International.

TIA draws heavily on the private sector. Five of the eight contractors identified by the Center are involved in evaluating future contracts for the program. Grey E. Burkhart, an associate of Booz Allen Hamilton, identifies himself on his resume as “assistant project manager” of TIA system implementation. Even the phrase “Total Information Awareness” has a private pedigree—Visual Analytics, Inc., a Poolesville, Md.-based software developer and DARPA contractor, has applied for a trademark for the phrase.

August 8, 2001: Booz, Allen, & Hamilton employee named head of NIMA (the National Imagery and Mapping Agency - the 'eyes of America') http://cartome.org/new-nima.htm

From Biographies: Federal Government: Civilian and Military http://officialnoticesonline.com/bios.html

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 successively 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.

    DARPA has hired diversified defense industry giants Lockheed-Martin and Booz Allen & Hamilton for TIA and related projects. Booz Allen has won what may become the largest TIA contract, potentially worth $62 million over the next five years if DARPA exercises all the contract’s options.

    Booz Allen employee Grey E. Burkhart’s resume notes that he is the “assistant program manager for the implementation of an advanced collaborative analysis system for the counterterrorism and intelligence communities,” which he identifies as “Total Information Awareness (TIA) System Implementation.” DARPA spokeswoman Walker told the Center that Burkhart is not an employee of the government.

    Burkhart has had more than 25 years of experience in strategic security, intelligence, and telecommunications. Working in both the private and public sectors he was a career intelligence officer, CEO of Allied Communications Engineering, and has become a “recognized expert on in the global proliferation of information technology.”

    Burkhart’s resume also notes that he was a member of Booz Allen’s Homeland Security Coordination Center and Tiger Team, for which he “conducted analysis of new legislation and executive orders and assessed their impact on current and future business.”

Booz, Allen, & Hamilton also works closely with DARPA. DARPA is, of course, closely aligned with John Poindexter, head of Total Information Awareness and the guy that called the shots in Iran-Contra.

Carlyle Group May Buy Major CIA Contractor: Booz Allen Hamilton
by Tim Shorrock , Special to CorpWatch
March 8th, 2008

Source



The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest private equity funds, may soon acquire the $2 billion government contracting business of consulting giant Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the biggest suppliers of technology and personnel to the U.S. government’s spy agencies. Carlyle manages more than $75 billion in assets and has bought and sold a long string of military contractors since the early 1990s. But in recent years it has significantly reduced its investments in that industry. If it goes ahead with the widely reported plan to buy Booz Allen, it will re-emerge as the owner of one of America’s largest private intelligence armies.

Reports of a potential Carlyle acquisition of Booz Allen’s government unit began circulating among U.S. military contractors in December 2007, after Booz Allen’s senior partners and board members – a group of 300 vice presidents who own the privately-held firm – gathered at company headquarters in McLean, Virginia, for an extraordinary two-day meeting.

According to a December 15 letter to Booz Allen employees from CEO Ralph W. Shrader that was released by the firm, the vice presidents signed off on a “new strategic direction” that would involve separating the company’s commercial and government units and operating them as separate companies. That was widely seen, both inside and outside the company, as a sign that a sale of one or both of the units was imminent. Shrader said the company hoped to come to a resolution of the issues involved by March 31, 2008.

In January 2008, major newspapers – each quoting unnamed people close to the situation – reported that discussions between Booz Allen and Carlyle about the sale of the government unit were underway. According to the Wall Street Journal, the deal will be “centered on Booz Allen’s influence in defense and intelligence contracting. If an agreement is reached the sale price will likely be around $2 billion.”

Christopher Ullman, Carlyle’s chief spokesman, could neither confirm nor deny that a deal was in the works, and declined to comment to CorpWatch about the reports. Because of Carlyle’s long experience in the defense sector, he added, such companies “would be a priority for us when the price is right and it’s the right fit for us.” George Farrar, a Booz Allen spokesman, said his company “has refused to discuss particulars of any ongoing discussions” and would not comment beyond what Shrader wrote in his December 15 missive to Booz Allen’s workforce.

Who Is Booz Allen Hamilton?

In 2006, Booz Allen Hamilton, a privately held company based in McLean, Virginia, had a global staff of 18,000 and annual revenues of $3.7 billion. Its work for U.S. government agencies accounts for more than 50 percent of its business. Notably Booz Allen is a key adviser and prime contractor to all of the major U.S. intelligence agencies – the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), the National Security Agency (NSA),  and – as well as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Counterterrorism Center, the Department of Defense and most of the Pentagon’s combatant commands.

On its website, Booz Allen describes its intelligence work as part of its broader expertise in information technology. “Whether dealing with homeland security, peacekeeping operations, or the battlefield, success depend on the ability to collect, safeguard, store, distribute, fuse, and share information – on getting the right information to the right place at the right time,” it says. “Our security professionals work in partnership with clients to develop capabilities … for protecting information and networks against cyber and physical threats.”

That has not always been the case: Booz Allen Hamilton was founded as a management consultancy in 1914 in Chicago by three businessmen whose surnames gave the firm its name. In 1940, after more than three decades of giving advice to top ranking companies in America’s manufacturing and service economy, such as Montgomery Ward, Goodyear Tire and the Illinois State Railroad, Booz Allen started working for the U.S. military, where its clients included the Army, the Navy, and, after the war, the Air Force and the Pentagon.

Its initial contracts with the Navy in 1940 set the pace for its military work: as a management consultant, Booz Allen helped the Navy restructure for World War II and permeated its ranks with contractors (“Each Navy bureau had a Booz rep,” Investors Daily reported in a 2005 profile of the firm). That relationship served as a template for Booz Allen’s later work in intelligence and national security where its personnel worked inside government agencies alongside public employees.

Since the late-1990s, Booz Allen has forged a particularly close relationship with the NSA, the spy agency that monitors global telephone, e-mail and Internet traffic for the U.S. military and political leaders, which hired Booz Allen as its chief outside consultant on Project Groundbreaker. This $4 billion project outsourced the NSA’s internal communications and networking systems to a consortium led by Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) and the IT subsidiary of Northrop Grumman.

Today, among the many services Booz Allen provides to intelligence agencies, according to its Website, are war-gaming – simulated drills in which military and intelligence officials test their response to potential threats like terrorist attacks – as well as data-mining and analysis of imagery and intelligence picked up by U.S. spy satellites, the design of cryptographic, or code-breaking, systems (an NSA specialty) and “outsourcing/privatization strategy and planning.” The company’s 2007 annual report spells out several other areas of expertise, including “all source analysis,” an intelligence specialty managed by the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) that draws on public sources of information, such as foreign newspapers and textbooks, to add texture to data gathered by spies and electronic surveillance.

According to the company’s annual report, Booz Allen is also working on one of the most important spy initiatives launched in recent years: the Cryptographic Modernization Program. Air Force General John C. Koziol, the commander of the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency, described this program as an attempt to combine a variety of intelligence technologies to pick up tell-tale signs of chemicals and other substances – into a single electronic package that can be used by combat and special operations commanders to track the enemy.

Booz Allen is a full partner in the project, according to General Koziol, an idea that has been “fully endorsed” by the Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell, the nation’s spy chief  – himself a Booz Allen alumnus (see box).

Revolving Door

To carry out its tasks at the intelligence agencies, Booz Allen has hired a dazzling array of former national security officials and foot-soldiers. In 2002, Information Week reported that Booz Allen had more than 1,000 former intelligence officers on its payroll. In 2007, as this reporter was researching a chapter about Booz Allen for his forthcoming book, he asked the company if it could confirm that number or provide a more accurate one, and received an e-mail reply from spokesman George Farrar: “It is certainly possible, but as a privately held corporation we consider that information to be proprietary and do not disclose.”

Buried deep on the company's Web site, however, a much larger number is confirmed in an explanation of a Booz Allen information technology contract with the DIA, which carries out intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. It stated that the Booz Allen team “employs more than 10,000 TS/SCI cleared personnel.” TS/SCI stands for top secret-sensitive compartmented intelligence, one of the highest possible security ratings, which would make Booz Allen one of the largest employers of cleared personnel in the United States.

Many of these former intelligence officers at Booz Allen, do the same jobs as they did for the government. For example, Keith Hall, a Booz Allen vice president initially worked in Army intelligence and on one of the congressional intelligence committees. In the early 1990s, he was hired by the CIA to manage budgets and policy development for then-Director of Central Intelligence Robert Gates. During that time, he played an instrumental role in creating the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, which was later renamed the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. During the Clinton administration, Hall was named Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for space programs and, simultaneously, director of the NRO, the agency that manages the nation’s military satellite program.

Now, as a Booz Allen executive, Hall leads a “strategic intelligence initiative” that integrates the company’s extensive contracting activities for the NRO and the NGA. Recently, one of his most important tasks involved chairing a 2005 homeland security study group that recommended a major expansion of information and data-sharing between U.S. spy agencies that work outside the country and domestic law enforcement, like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). “The study’s findings have become a road map for the government in making decisions related to critical information sharing in support of homeland security,” Booz Allen boasts in its 2007 annual report. (See our article, Domestic Spying, Inc.)

Other key executives who came to Booz Allen from the spy agencies include R. James Woolsey, the former director of the CIA, who was hired in 2003 to run Booz Allen’s “global resilience” division, which advises corporations on security issues, and Joan A. Dempsey, a career U.S. intelligence official and a former top aide to former CIA Director George Tenet, who was hired in 2005 as a Booz Allen vice president with responsibility to advise the DNI and other key intelligence agencies. (See box for list of other key corporate figures that previously worked in government intelligence agencies.)

It is these senior managers who would most likely benefit from a sale to Carlyle.

Unlike many of its competitors in the intelligence industry, Booz Allen is a privately held company whose shares are owned by its 300 vice presidents of whom “approximately 80 are in government support,” Booz Allen’s Farrar told CorpWatch. For these vice presidents, Carlyle’s infusion of capital, and its $2 billion buyout of their shares, will make them very rich men and women indeed. After all, $2 billion divided by 80 is $25 million; even if Booz Allen’s shares were divided equally, which is unlikely, that’s an astounding windfall for any executive.

Booz Allen CEO Ralph Shrader

The man most responsible for Booz Allen’s growth as an intelligence contractor is Ralph Shrader, who has been running the company as chairman and CEO since 1998. Shrader, an electrical engineer by training, came to Booz Allen in 1974 after serving at senior management levels of two prominent telecommunications companies – Western Union, where he was national director of advanced systems planning, and RCA, where he served in the company’s government communications system division. These positions prepared him well for his later work at Booz Allen as a consultant to the telecommunications industry. According to his official biography, he “led major assignments” for the industry as a Booz Allen consultant and was deeply involved in the company’s “landmark work for AT&T” when that company was broken up by the government.

In those assignments, Shrader may have been exposed to the telecommunications industry’s close ties to U.S. intelligence. During the years he worked for Western Union and RCA, those companies, along with ITT World Communications, were part of a secret surveillance program known as Minaret in which telecommunication companies, with the concurrence of a handful of high-ranking executives, handed over to the NSA information on all incoming and outgoing U.S. telephone calls and telegrams – an early version of the NSA’s warrantless surveillance program launched by the Bush administration after the September 11th attacks. Minaret, and the involvement of the private companies in NSA spying, was exposed by the congressional committees investigating intelligence abuse in the mid-1970s, and was the inspiration behind the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which set the rules – including the important requirement for warrants – for domestic surveillance of telephone traffic.

None of this is alluded to in Booz Allen’s official literature, of course; but Shrader, upon his appointment as CEO in 1998, mentioned in a rare press interview (with the Financial Times) that the most relevant background for his new position of chief executive was his experience working for telecommunications clients and doing classified military work for the U.S. government – “something of a Booz specialty,” the FT pointed out.

Booz Allen adds on its website that Shrader, as CEO, has also “led important programs for the U.S. National Communications System and the Defense Information Systems Agency,” two of the most important classified intelligence networks in use by the federal government. Under Shrader, Booz Allen also became the NSA’s most important outside consultant, culminating in its advisory role in Project Groundbreaker. That project, which awarded its first contracts in the summer of 2001, put Booz Allen in a prime position to capture NSA and other intelligence work in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, when intelligence budgets, and NSA surveillance, increased substantially.

“War on Terror” Contracts

After September 11th, 2001, by Booz Allen’s own account, the firm helped the government reshape its spying capabilities to match the new era of counterinsurgencies and terrorist threats. “The nature of intelligence changed dramatically in the wake of 9/11,” Christopher Ling, a Booz Allen vice president, explains in the company’s most recent annual report. “An entire analytic production system geared to detect large-scale cold war adversarial capabilities was suddenly required to transform.” At Booz Allen, he added, “We are finding innovative ways to integrate intelligence and operations, enabled by advanced visualization and data management capabilities, which has allowed us to pioneer tactics, techniques, and procedures.”

In addition to serving as a prime contractor on Admiral John Poindexter’s controversial Total Information Awareness project (see box), Booz Allen was active on both the military and economic fronts on the “war on terror.” For the Pentagon, it helped develop the “blue force” tracking system that allows soldiers and commanders in Iraq and other battlegrounds the ability to electronically identify friendly troops. And in the weeks leading up to the invasion of Iraq, Booz Allen sponsored and organized several conferences aimed at helping U.S. corporations secure contracts in occupied Baghdad, with former CIA director Woolsey, one of the most ardent backers of the war, as a keynote speaker.

Under Shrader’s leadership, Booz Allen played an instrumental role after September 11th in proselytizing for a greater corporate role in national and homeland security. This was important, the Booz Allen CEO said at a CEO summit he organized in 2002, because “business leaders cannot opt out of geopolitics and leave the job of security solely to government and the military.”

Deepening the corporate alliance with the Bush administration and its war on terror also had significant advantages for Booz Allen and its fellow corporations: on one hand, it drastically increased their contracts with military and intelligence agencies; and on the other, homeland security provided a convenient excuse for reducing government oversight and regulation. These dual interests were spelled out in unusual detail in 2004 by Richard Wilhelm, a former CIA and NSA officer who once served as national security adviser to former Vice President Al Gore and now leads Booz Allen’s business with the CIA and the Office of the DNI.

Speaking to a conference on information-sharing and counterterrorism, Wilhelm explained that the “right mix of policies” for business should include a wide range of “incentives” and “cooperative arrangements,” including “appropriate protections from Freedom of Information Act requirements and other unintended consequences of more open information sharing.” Government, he argued, should “help make the business case, and then sweeten it – because industry will share information when there is a business case to do so.” In other words, corporations were happy to participate in the exchange of information about terrorism and other security threats, but only if there were enough rewards. And for Booz Allen, those rewards have been sweet indeed, as a short list of their recent unclassified contracts attests. They include:

•    A $6.3 million contract to provide research on 3-D facial recognition biometric software for the Information Assurance Technical Analysis Center at Offut Air Force Base in Nebraska, awarded in 2008.
•    A $48 million contract with the U.S. Air Force to conduct research on “survivability and lethality implications” of an Air Force vehicle program, awarded in 2008.
•    In a partnership with CACI International, EDS, Lockheed Martin, SAIC and SRA, the right to bid on $12.2 billion worth of contracts for telecom and IT services for the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), awarded in 2007.
•    Participation in a consortium of seven companies that will bid on up to $20 billion worth of work in Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance – a mouthful of a term usually referred to as C4ISR – for the Army’s Communications Electronics Command, which is based in Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, awarded in 2006.
•    A five-year, $25o million contract to provide “systems engineering technical assistance” to the Science and Technology Directorate of the Department of Homeland Security, signed in 2005.

Little Congressional Scrutiny?

In spite of its tremendous power as a contractor, Booz Allen has received very little criticism or even scrutiny from the U.S. Congress. In January 2007, the Senate had a rare opportunity to inquire about the company when it held hearings on Michael McConnell’s nomination as Director of National Intelligence (see box). Prior to the hearing, several senators said they would question McConnell about Booz Allen’s role as a contractor; but the hearing was a desultory affair, and few questions were asked of the new DNI about the high level of contracting among the spy agencies or the specific role of Booz Allen.

A month later, a Booz Allen contract with the Department of Homeland Security came under close scrutiny in the House. In February 2007, Henry Waxman, a Democratic Congressman from California, the chairman of the House Committee on Government Oversight and Reform, charged that Booz Allen had a significant conflict of interest over its contract to oversee an $8 billion contract with the DHS Secure Border Initiative known as SBI-Net. Under the contract, Boeing and other companies will build a “virtual fence” of cameras, radar and sensors that will transmit imagery and data to border patrol agents working along the U.S. borders with Canada and Mexico. (See CorpWatch's “Fencing the Border".)

The conflict arose, said Waxman, because Booz Allen had long-standing business partnerships with Boeing, the prime contractor for SBI-Net, and could therefore not provide objective oversight of the program. At the hearing, Waxman pointed out to DHS officials that they had hired 98 people to oversee the SBI-Net contract. “But the problem is that 65 of these people don’t work for the government. They work for the contractor,” he said. “You’re relying on them to do the function that a government ordinarily would do.” DHS officials responded that Booz Allen had been hired for advice, not for oversight.

Waxman’s criticism could be made of a myriad of contracts Booz Allen holds with intelligence agencies. At the NSA, for example, it has advised the agency about several contracts that involve companies that Booz Allen has close business ties with. That is also true at the NRO, the NGA and the CIA. So far, however, no reports of conflicts of interest have emerged from Congress, which in any case exercises little oversight over intelligence contracts.

In another damaging report issued in 2007, the General Accounting Office, the audit arm of the U.S. Congress, found that the Department of Homeland Security was spending nearly $16 billion a year on goods and services from the private sector, making it the third-largest employer of contractors in the federal government. Among the beneficiaries of DHS’ spending was Booz Allen Hamilton, which in 2006 was awarded a $43 million no-bid contract to provide services to the DHS intelligence unit. Upon reading the $16 billion DHS figures in the GAO report, Joseph Lieberman, an independent U.S. senator from Connecticut, angrily commented: “plainly put, we need to know who is in charge at DHS – its managers and workers, or the contractors.”

The Washington Post later found that Booz Allen’s no-bid intelligence contract with DHS had ballooned in value from $2 million in 2003 to over $30 million in 2006 – 15 times its original value. When DHS lawyers first examined the Booz Allen deal, the Post said, they found it was “grossly beyond the scope” of the original contract and had violated government procurement rules. An open competition was ordered by DHS lawyers, but delayed for a year. During that time, the Post said, “the payments to Booz Allen more than doubled again under a second no-bid arrangement, to $73 million.”

Union Protests

So far, the only public criticism of the potential Carlyle-Booz Allen deal has come from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), one of the country’s largest labor unions. Last year, the union launched a blistering attack on Carlyle and the private equity industry in a widely distributed report called “Behind the Buyouts: Inside the World of Private Equity.” The gist of the report was that Carlyle, Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts (KKR) and other large private equity funds were undermining the U.S. economy by avoiding taxes and creating “harsh consequences,” such as layoffs, for workers and communities. In late 2007, when Carlyle acquired the assets of Manor Care, a chain of nursing homes where the SEIU is trying to organize workers, the union stepped up its campaign.

In January 2008, after rumors of a Carlyle takeover of Booz Allen surfaced in the press, SEIU issued a blistering press release denouncing the potential deal. The union’s criticism of the proposed acquisition didn’t focus on Booz Allen’s role in intelligence outsourcing but on Carlyle’s ties with the Mubadala Development fund of the Government of Abu Dhabi. In 2007, that fund paid $1.35 billion to buy a 7.5 percent ownership stake in Carlyle’s general partnership.

As a result of that investment, the SEIU charged, Carlyle was risking national security. “The potential for a Carlyle Group-Booz Allen buyout demands urgency on the part of lawmakers and regulators to examine the risks faced by the U.S. when foreign governments potentially have access to classified and other sensitive national security information through their stake in U.S. companies,” the union declared in a press release. In an interview with CorpWatch, Stephen Lerner, the director of SEIU’s Private Equity Project, said the union launched this nationalist campaign out of concern that classified information from Booz Allen could leak into the hands of the Abu Dhabi fund, thus compromising U.S. security interests.

“When you combine buyout firms, which have much less reporting requirements because they are private, with opaque sovereign wealth funds, you get a toxic stew of secrecy,” he said. Asked how or why Booz Allen executives might leak classified information to a foreign government, he replied: “The point is, you have no way of knowing if they would or wouldn’t.” He added that, while the SEIU has not taken a position on Booz Allen’s extensive role in intelligence outsourcing, the issue of “government jobs being done by private contractors” might emerge in the future for the union.

(The SEIU does not mention in its material that the California Public Employees Retirement System, the pension fund for California state retirees where the SEIU has significant influence, owns five percent of the Carlyle Group – see box.)

Carlyle’s Ullman, who recently discussed the union campaign with SEIU president Andrew Stern during a conference on private equity, rejected the SEIU’s claims. The charges that the Abu Dhabi investment could jeopardize national security “is really an obscene allegation,” he said. Ullman added that the Abu Dhabi fund was a “passive investor” in Carlyle and would have no role in the management of Carlyle companies. “Carlyle’s portfolio companies have a pristine track record in handling sensitive government data,” he said. “Giving top secret and classified data to foreign governments is known as treason, and is punishable by jail and worse. That would be a fairly strong impediment” to leaks.

In any case, there is virtually no evidence to suggest that any US intelligence contractor has leaked classified information, and it’s unlikely the union’s allegations will be a factor if the Carlyle Group does decide to acquire Booz Allen Hamilton.

Shadow Intelligence Agency

Booz Allen prides itself on the long-term personal relationships it has forged between its personnel and their government clients. “We stay for a lifetime,” Mark J. Gerencser, the senior vice president in charge of Booz Allen’s government contracting division, remarked in 2006. A quick study of their biographies posted on Booz Allen’s Website suggests that this is indeed true – the senior management have shuttled back and forth between the company and the government for their entire lives.

As the director of Booz Allen’s U.S. government business, for example, Gerencser serves in “several broad-based roles,” including “representing industry” to the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which manage the Pentagon’s vast intelligence operations. He is also a member of Booz Allen’s leadership team that sets the strategic direction of the company, and has run many of the war games staged by Booz Allen for its government clients.

Just below him in the company’s intelligence hierarchy is Ken Wiegand, another senior vice president. Weigand came to Booz Allen in 1983 after working for a decade in Air Force intelligence, and now leads the firm’s work for national intelligence and law enforcement agencies and the Department of Homeland Security. His specialty, the Website says, includes imagery intelligence operations, which are managed by the NGA, one of Booz Allen’s most important clients.

Senior vice president Joseph W. Mahaffee, a veteran of naval intelligence, is the leader of Booz Allen’s Maryland procurement office business, which puts him in charge of the company’s contracts with the NSA in Fort Meade. He focuses on “meeting the Information Assurance mission objectives” of the NSA with various technology services, including systems engineering, software development and “advanced telecommunications analysis.”

Another key Booz Allen figure at the NSA is Marty Hill, who came to the company after a 35-year career in signals intelligence and electronic warfare and previously served as an expert on “information operations capabilities and policy” for Donald Rumsfeld’s Pentagon. He leads of team of 1,200 professionals engaged in all aspects of “signals intelligence” including technical analysis, systems development and operations.

Vice President Pamela Lentz is a former cryptology officer with the Navy and once worked as a program manager for TRW, one of the nation’s oldest intelligence contractors (it is now owned by Northrop Grumman). She is Booz Allen’s “client service officer” for the DIA and other military intelligence markets, which includes intelligence units within the Navy, Air Force, Army, the unified combatant commands and the undersecretary of defense for intelligence. Among other tasks, Lentz manages a 120-person Booz Allen team that supports the NRO, the Pentagon agency that manages the nation’s military spy satellites. She also runs a task force that supports human intelligence collection efforts at the DIA.

Vice President Laurene Gallo, a former intelligence analyst at the NSA, leads a Booz Allen “intelligence research and analysis” team that support several agencies, including the CIA, the DNI and the National Counterterrrorism Center. Vice President Richard Wilhelm, whose job at Booz Allen is to work with the CIA and the ODNI, came to the company after a long career in U.S. intelligence that included stints directing the Joint Intelligence Center for Iraq during Operation Desert Storm and the NSA’s first director of information warfare.

Vice President William Wansley, a former Army intelligence officer, leads a team of experts in “strategic and business planning” who support the CIA’s National Clandestine Service, the part of the CIA that conducts covert operations and recruits foreign spies, as well as the DNI. Another vice president Robert W. Noonan, a retired Army lieutenant general who once served as the Army’s deputy chief of staff for intelligence and the commanding general of the U.S. Army’s Intelligence and Security Command, is in charge of expanding Booz Allen’s military intelligence business within all the armed services, the combatant commands, the DIA and the Office of the Secretary of Defense.

It is each of these vice presidents who are poised to personally profit from a corporate takeover by the Carlyle Group.

Who is the Carlyle Group?

The Carlyle Group is a private equity fund – a group of financial advisers that invests large sums of money from pension funds, large corporations, wealthy individuals and foreign banks into privately held companies in many different industries, and then run those companies until the market is right to sell them at a substantial profit. During the early years of the George W. Bush administration, it gained attention – and some notoriety – because of the large number of former high-ranking political figures it had attracted as advisers and managers. They included former President George H.W. Bush, former Secretary of State James Baker and former British Prime Minister John Major.

Shortly after the September 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington, Carlyle was in the news again when newspapers revealed that Osama Bin Laden’s family in Saudi Arabia – which owns one of the world’s largest construction companies – held a stake in the fund. The stake was quickly liquidated after the news broke.

Until the recent slowdown in the financial markets, the private equity industry, with over $160 billion under its control, was widely seen as one of the most important drivers of the global economy, pumping venture capital into high-tech startups and buy-out capital into corporate reorganizations worldwide. They are extremely active in Britain, where more than 20 percent of the private sector workforce is employed by companies that are, or have been, the targets of private equity investments. Business magazines credit them with breaking up some of America’s worst-run conglomerates and bringing competition to Japan’s highly regulated and incestuous banking industry.

“Private equity funds now wield much of the transformational power at the heart of the capitalist system,” The Economist magazine recently observed. In addition to Carlyle, which has more than $75 billion under management, industry leaders include the Blackstone Group ($30 billion), Bain Capital ($27 billion), Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts & Co. ($26 billion) and Texas Pacific Group ($20 billion).

Carlyle, the largest of the funds, is best-known for owning large military contractors and aerospace contractors, such as United Defense Industries, the maker of the Bradley Fighting Vehicle and other weapons systems, which it sold to BAE Systems in 2004, and Vought Aircraft Industries, a major producer of structural assemblies for commercial, military and business aircraft, which it still holds. Other military contractors that have gone through Carlyle’s hands include EG&G, LTV Aerospace and Magnavox Electronic Systems.

During the 1990s, when it made most of these acquisitions, the fund was led by former Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci, who served during the Carter administration as deputy director of the CIA. During his tenure, Carlyle bought and sold nearly a dozen companies active in the intelligence industry. They include BDM International, an influential company that, during the 1990s, provided some of the U.S. Army’s first contract interpreters and, through a subsidiary known as Vinnell Corporation, once trained the Saudi National Guard. It was eventually sold to Northrop Grumman and is now part of that company’s huge intelligence division.

U.S. Investigative Service, which Carlyle bought in 1996 and sold in 2007, is the largest provider of security investigations for employees and contractors hired by the Pentagon, the National Security Agency and other agencies, and in recent months has been training Iraqi police commandoes under contract to the Pentagon. (See CorpWatch coverage of USIS.)

Another spectacular acquisition was QinetiQ, the privatized arm of Britain’s military research corporation. It was acquired by Carlyle in 2003, sold in 2007, and recently emerged as one of the premiere U.S. intelligence contractors – after netting a $470 million profit for Carlyle. (See our article “QinetiQ goes Kinetic”.)

Carlyle, however, has divested itself of most of its military holdings. “In our current U.S. portfolio, there’s none,” Carlyle’s Ullman told CorpWatch. Today, most of its investments are concentrated in commercial industries, such as real estate and banking. During a few months’ span in 2006, for instance, Carlyle did a “manufacturing deal, an education deal, a consumer products deal, and buildings deal, and a financial services deal,” according to an account in the Washingtonian magazine. Its holdings are extensive and pervasive: every time you rent a car from Hertz, catch a quick breakfast at Dunkin’ Donuts or get ice-cream at Baskin-Robbins, you’re sending money to Carlyle.

A $2 billion acquisition of Booz Allen’s contracting business would therefore put Carlyle back in the big leagues of military contractors.

Michael McConnell

Booz Allen Hamilton’s most illustrious alumnus is Michael McConnell, the current Director of National Intelligence, the top spy job in the country, who epitomizes the term revolving door, spinning from government job to industry and back again.

McConnell was a senior Pentagon official during George Bush Senior’s administration and the first Gulf War, where he worked for Dick Cheney, then the Secretary of Defense, as the chief intelligence adviser to General Colin Powell, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Cheney was so impressed with McConnell’s work during the war that he appointed him to head the NSA in 1993 (he later intervened personally to convince McConnell to take the DNI job in 2007).

McConnell subsequently spent more than 10 years as a Booz Allen senior vice president in charge of the company’s extensive contracts in military intelligence and information operations for the Pentagon. In that job, his official biography states, McConnell provided intelligence support to "the U.S. Unified Combatant Commanders, the Director of National Intelligence Agencies, and the Military Service Intelligence Directors." That made him a close colleague of not only Donald Rumsfeld, who ran the Pentagon from 2001 to 2007, but of Vice President Cheney, who has served President Bush as a kind of intelligence godfather since the earliest days of the administration.

As Booz Allen’s chief intelligence liaison to the Pentagon, McConnell was at the center of action, both before and after the September 11 attacks. During the first six years of the Bush administration, Booz Allen’s contracts with the U.S. government rose dramatically, from $626,000 in 2000 to $1.6 billion in 2006. McConnell and his staff at Booz Allen were deeply involved in some of the Bush administration’s most controversial counterterrorism programs. They included the Pentagon’s infamous Total Information Awareness data-mining scheme run by former Navy Admiral John Poindexter, which was an attempt to collect information on potential terrorists in America from phone records, credit card receipts and other databases. (Congress cancelled the program over civil liberties concerns, but much of the work was transferred to the NSA, where Booz Allen continued to receive the contracts.)

In 2002, when the CIA launched a financial intelligence project to track terrorist financing with the secret cooperation of SWIFT, the Brussels-based international banking consortium, Booz Allen won a contract to serve as an “outside” auditor of the project.

In January 2007, McConnell resigned from Booz Allen after he was appointed by President George W. Bush to his current job. He now oversees all 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, and thus much of Booz Allen’s government business. (See this reporter's 2007 Salon article.)

Of Unions, Pension Funds and the Carlyle Group

The SEIU’s campaign material on the Carlyle Group, including a 40-page white paper on private equity issued last year, fails to mention a salient fact: that many SEIU members are affiliated with a pension fund that holds a significant stake in the Carlyle Group.

That fund is the California Public Employees Retirement System, the world’s largest public pension fund, often known as CalPERS. It has held a five percent stake in Carlyle’s core management group since 2000, and therefore profits every time Carlyle makes money from one of its investments. Many of the California state officials who sit on CalPERS boards are also members of the SEIU, although they officially only represent their employer, not the union.

In 2001, this reporter attended a meeting of the CalPERS investment board where Carlyle’s three founding managers appeared as witnesses. The public meeting took place at a time when Carlyle was a hot media topic because of its close ties to the Bush administration and its prominence as the nation’s 11th largest military contractor. Several SEIU officials attended the meeting, and the questioning of Carlyle was led by a CalPERS official who belonged to the SEIU. However, the investment board didn’t ask about Carlyle’s military industry investments, and instead posed a single, softball question about Carlyle’s views on the U.S. investment climate.

Asked why the SEIU hasn’t mentioned CalPERS’ stake in Carlyle in any of its literature, Stephen Lerner, the director of SEIU’s Private Equity Project, replied that the union didn’t start investigating the pension fund’s role in Carlyle until 2007.

Until then, “we never really thought about CalPERS’ investment in Carlyle,” he said. “Now that we’re digging in deeper, we’re raising lots of questions.” Under SEIU’s initiative, a California lawmaker has introduced legislation that would prohibit CalPERS from investing in private equity funds owned in part by overseas funds from countries that don’t “generally respect human rights.” According to an SEIU handout, the legislation “is only applicable to private equity firms in which sovereign wealth funds have an ownership stake,” such as Carlyle.

Carlyle’s Ullman responded that the legislation could hurt the people it is supposed to protect. California lawmakers “should consider the detrimental impact on California pensioners who have benefited greatly from CalPERS’ investment in, and ownership of, the Carlyle Group,” he told CorpWatch.

Tim Shorrock’s book on the outsourcing of U.S. intelligence, Spies for Hire, will be published in May by Simon & Schuster.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Seung-Hui Cho Was a Mind Controlled Assassin
Deadly accuracy, disturbing revelations suggest outside involvement in VA Massacre, cocktail of brainwashing from prozac, violent video games contributed to carnage

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
 Thursday, April 19, 2007

Seung-Hui Cho was a mind-controlled assassin, whether you believe he was under the influence of outside parties or not, the fact is that the cultural brainwashing of violent video games and psychotropic drugs directly contributed, as it does in all these cases, to the carnage at Virginia Tech on Monday morning.

Gun grabbers are already exploiting the tragedy to disarm future students from the opportunity of being able to defend themselves against deranged killers, but the media circus is completely silent when it comes to the laying blame at the feet of a deadly cocktail of mind-warping drugs and bloodthirsty shoot-em-ups.

Outside of the obvious culpability of the factors we see in every mass shooting - video games and "antidepressant" drugs, numerous red flags concerning Monday events are beginning to suggest that Cho was more than a heartbroken nutcase with an axe to grind.

Charles Mesloh, Professor of Criminology at Florida Gulf Coast University, told NBC 2 News that he was shocked Cho could have killed 32 people with two handguns absent expert training. Mesloh immediately assumed that Cho must have used a shotgun or an assault rifle.
....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=wMGmJG9RM90

"I'm dumbfounded by the number of people he managed to kill with these weapons," said Mesloh, "The only thing I can figure is that he got close to them and he simply executed them."

Mesloh said the killer performed like a trained professional, "He had a 60% fatality rate with handguns - that's unheard of given 9 millimeters don't kill people instantly," said Mesloh, stating that the handguns Cho used were designed for "plinking at cans," not executing human beings.

Cho was certainly no slouch, in the two hour gap between the first reported shootings and the wider rampage that would occur later in the morning, during which time the University completely failed to warn the students despite having loudspeakers stationed throughout the campus, Cho had time to film a confession video, transfer it to his computer, burn it onto a DVD, package it up, travel to the post office, post the package, and travel back to his dorm room to retrieve his guns and then travel back to the opposite end of the campus to resume the killing spree. The almost inconceivable speed of Cho's actions become more suspicious when we recall initial reports that there were two shooters.

Even if we rule out the fact that Cho had received expert firearms training, the cultural mind control of violent video games and mind-altering psychotropic drugs were themselves a cocktail of brainwashing that directly contributed to the carnage, as they do in nearly all these cases.

From the very first reports of the shootings we predicted the killer would be on prozac, would have recently been in psychiatric care and would have regularly played violent video games and that has precisely turned out to be accurate in all three instances

"Several Korean youths who knew Cho Seung Hui from his high school days said he was a fan of violent video games, particularly a game called "Counterstrike," a hugely popular online game in which players join terrorism or counterterrorism groups and try to shoot each other using all types of guns," reports Newsmax citing the Washington Post.

"In December 2005 -- more than a year before Monday's mass shootings -- a district court in Montgomery County, Va., ruled that Cho presented "an imminent danger to self or others." That was the necessary criterion for a detention order, so that Cho, who had been accused of stalking by two female schoolmates, could be evaluated by a state doctor and ordered to undergo outpatient care," reports ABC News, " but despite the court identifying the future killer as a risk, they let him go.

Investigators believe that Cho Seung Hui, the Virginia Tech murderer, had been taking anti-depressant medication at some point before the shootings, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Columbine shooters Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, as well as 15-year-old Kip Kinkel, the Oregon killer who gunned down his parents and classmates, were all on psychotropic drugs. Scientific studies proving that prozac encourages suicidal tendencies in young people are voluminous and span back nearly a decade.

Jeff Weise, the Red Lake High School killer was on prozac, "Unabomber" Ted Kaczinski, Michael McDermott, John Hinckley, Jr., Byran Uyesugi, Mark David Chapman and Charles Carl Roberts IV, the Amish school killer, were all on SSRI psychotropic drugs.

Since these deadly drugs are prevalent in almost all mass shooting incidents, where is the call to ban prozac? Why is the knee-jerk reaction always to attack the 2nd Amendment rights of Americans to self-defense, a right that was exercised in January 2002 when students subdued a shooter at another Virginia university before he could kill more than three people because they were allowed guns on campus?

Why are the deeper reasons behind what motivates young men to kill pushed aside while control freaks demand that law-abiding citizens be disarmed of the only thing that can protect them from such madmen?

Questions about the sequence of events on Monday, VA Tech, as well as the profile of the killer are arousing increased suspicion.

We have been receiving numerous calls and e mails alerting us to the fact that VA Tech is pulling links from its website concerning their relationship with the CIA. Reports from November 2005 confirm that the CIA was active in operating recruitment programs based out of VA Tech. Several professors from VA Tech are involved in government programs linked with NASA and other agencies.

Wikipedia also pulled a bizarre recently taken photograph of Cho wearing a U.S. Marines uniform.

Such details only fan the flames of accusations that Cho could have been a Manchurian Candidate, a mind-controlled assassin.

The CIA's program to create mind-controlled assassins that could be triggered by code words, MK ULTRA, is not a conspiracy theory, it's a historical fact documented by declassified government files and Senate hearings. President Bill Clinton himself had to apologize for the program before he left office.

On the Senate floor in 1977, Senator Ted Kennedy said, "The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an 'extensive testing and experimentation' program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens 'at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign."

One such victim of these experiments was Cathy O'Brien, who immediately after the shootings re-iterated the revelations in her latest book, that Blacksburg Virginia is a central location for mind control programs that are still ongoing today.

CIA mind control programs can be tracked back to the 1950's and Project BLUEBIRD, later renamed ARTICHOKE.

From blogger Kurt Nimmo;

“BLUEBIRD was approved by the CIA director on April 20, 1950. In August 1951, the Project was renamed ARTICHOKE. BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE included a great deal of work on the creation of amnesia, hypnotic couriers, and the Manchurian Candidate,” writes Colin A. Ross, MD. “ARTICHOKE documents prove that hypnotic couriers functioned effectively in real-life simulations conducted by the CIA in the early 1950’s. The degree to which such individuals were used in actual operations is still classified…. BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE were administered in a compartmented fashion. The details of the programs were kept secret even form other personnel within the CIA…. The BLUEBIRD/ARTICHOKE materials establish conclusively that full Manchurian Candidates were created and tested successfully by physicians with TOP SECRET clearance from the CIA…. As well as being potential couriers and infiltration agents, the subjects could function in effect as hypnotically controlled cameras. They could enter a room or building, memorize materials quickly, leave the building, and then be amnesic for the entire episode. The memorized material could then be retrieved by a handler using a previously implanted code or signal, without the amnesia being disturbed. Hypnosis was not the mind control doctors’ only method for creation of controlled amnesia, however. Drugs, magnetic fields, sound waves, sleep deprivation, solitary confinement, and many other methods were studied under BLUEBIRD and ARTHICHOKE.”

Researchers into supposed "lone nut" assassinations time and time again run across evidence pointing to CIA mind control experimentation. The best example is Sirhan Sirhan, Bobby Kennedy's assassin. Sirhan was found to be in a completely trance-like state after pulling the trigger and couldn't even remember shooting Kennedy when asked about the incident days later. Sirhan's lawyer, Lawrence Teeter, has presented convincing evidence that Sirhan was under mind control.

Either way you cut it, Seung-Hui Cho was a victim of brainwashing and mind control.
The right questions are not being asked and the finger of blame is being pointed in the wrong direction, ensuring that another tragedy like the VA Tech Massacre is almost guaranteed.

 We can`t underestimate the lenghts they will go to, their ability to controll be it the A typical fear,hate, etc, or the absolute mind control.
   Scripters, lablers allways seem to give a baldface hint. Tech shooting Cho, pronounounce Cho-show.

   Arab Spring...........Does anyone else see the twisted synical reasoning to these missions naming.
No matter, they have been brain controlling for many yers, now it has seemingly become S>O>P.

I found it interesting that the mind manipulation on NPR and various reports was never to mention the crazy mind controlled shooter and what led up to the MK ultra Gladio operation ....

No its about gun control and guns are bad ... OK?


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gladio
NATO and the CIA and that Gladio in Italy was responsible for terrorist attacks against its own civilian population.

'(Be)longing' Explores Gun Violence, 10 Years After Virginia Tech Shooting
5:26
April 16, 20178:12 AM ET

(Be)longing is the name of a new oratorio commissioned to mark the 10th anniversary of the Virginia Tech shootings. The creators wanted to create a piece about gun violence and how to prevent it.

...
HARRIS: It was, of course, gunfire. And soon, Blacksburg became the center of that familiar media convergence that arrives unbidden after tragic events.

ANITA PUCKETT: And one of the things that bothered me enormously, as I watched all of this coverage, was how they were making the story.

HARRIS: Anita Puckett is a linguistic anthropologist who teaches at Virginia Tech.

PUCKETT: They were creating the narrative of what had happened. And they were claiming ownership of that narrative by various media broadcasts and on television, on whatever. And I'm going no, it's our misery. It's our narrative. And whose story is it going to be over time?
...

blah blah blah ....

According to the ignorant left, there is no such thing as MK Ultra and anybody who brings up MK Ultra concerning a mass shooting is either a conspiracy theorist and/or a gun industry shill.
