Detailed investigation reveals unexpected connections among people who played critical roles related to the attacks of September 11, 2001. Earlier articles have covered some of those connections with respect to the World Trade Center (WTC) and the official reports which were produced to explain the WTC events. This article will begin to outline a wider set of connections that encompasses more aspects of 9/11. Readers may find that, with respect to the 9/11 attacks and those who were responsible for protecting us from terrorism, it is a small world after all.
Barry McDaniel came to the WTC security company Stratesec, in 1998, to become its Chief Operating Officer. In the years before 9/11, Stratesec had contracts to provide security services not only for the WTC, but also for United Airlines, which owned two of the planes hijacked on 9/11, and Dulles Airport, where American Airlines Flight 77 took off that day.
At the WTC, McDaniel was in charge of the security operation in terms of what he called a “completion contract,” to provide services “up to the day the buildings fell down.” McDaniel came to Stratesec directly from BDM International, where he had been Vice President for nine years. BDM was a major subsidiary of The Carlyle Group for most of that time. When Barry McDaniel started at BDM, the company began getting a large amount of government business “in an area the Navy called Black Projects,” or budgets that were kept secret.
The company that McDaniel now leads is called Lancaster Systems & Solutions (LS2). As CEO at LS2, McDaniel has a board of directors which is led by Bruce Bradley. This is an astounding connection due to the fact that Bradley is the founder of Bradley Woods, where Dick Cheney got his start. Cheney worked for Bradley Woods as Vice President during intermittent periods between the times he and Donald Rumsfeld were working for Nixon and running the Ford White House.
It seems an incredible coincidence that the “number two” man for Barry McDaniel today was formerly the closest of colleague of Dick Cheney forty years ago. Of course, people who have studied the attacks in detail no longer believe in coincidences related to 9/11.
It is also odd that LS2 is a company that is so focused on the “response” to 9/11. In fact, few companies are more focused on the 9/11 aftermath than LS2, whose mission is to “deliver a diversified suite of responsive defense solutions to government organizations and multinational corporations who provide military, law enforcement, security, peacekeeping, and emergency response operations across the globe.” The company’s subsidiary, Global Service and Trade, provides equipment for police state operations around the world.
Between the years that he worked with Cheney and McDaniel, Bradley was a director for UBS (mentioned in the review of WTC connections) and Legg Mason, where he was a colleague of Cheryl Krongard, the wife of CIA Executive Director, Buzzy Krongard.
The board of directors which Bradley leads for McDaniel at LS2 includes another former VP of BDM, Ronald Riggin, and several other very interesting people. One such person is Larry Johnson, a former CIA employee and State Department official. Johnson was a paramilitary CIA officer from 1985 to 1989, but he also directed crisis management for hijackings and helped investigate the Lockerbie Bombing (Pan Am 103).
In 1994, Johnson started scripting Special Operations exercises for the State Department. From 1996 to 2006, as Deputy Director of Counterterrorism within the State Department, he led terrorism training for senior-level government officials and served as an expert witness in cases against al Qaeda suspects.
Another director working with Bradley and McDaniel at LS2 is David Pillor, the former director and Executive VP of InVision Technologies (InVision). As the leading provider of bomb detecting equipment for airports, InVision had an interesting history which included installation of its equipment at most major airports prior to 9/11, including those from which the hijacked planes took off.
Sergio Magistri was the CEO of InVision from 1992 through 2004. In a court case related to this period, InVision was charged “with authorizing improper payments to foreign government officials in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).” The case represented the first, and perhaps only, time that the U.S. Department of Justice decided to not prosecute a company which had violated the FCPA.
Magistri and LS2’s Pillor are now both board members at Vidient Systems, Inc (Vidient), a video surveillance company that serves the “homeland security” industry. Vidient is in strategic partnership with Autonomy Corp, where we find the “Prince of Darkness,” Richard Perle. Fellow directors at Vidient include several people who played critical roles related to the events of September 11.
One director at Vidient is Richard Clarke, the former “Counterterrorism Czar,” whose job for nine years prior to 9/11 was to protect the United States from a terrorist attack. There are many important questions that need to be answered regarding Clarke and his associations and actions leading up to 9/11. Clarke’s role in the international failure to respond to the Rwandan genocide of 1994 is another matter that needs further investigation.
At Vidient we also find The Lord Paul Condon. In September 2000, Condon became a director at the British security company, Securicor (now G4S). Three months later, in December 2000, Securicor bought a company called Argenbright which ran security on 9/11 at Dulles and Newark airports where Flight 77 and Flight 93, respectively, took off that day. Argenbright also managed some, perhaps unrelated, security checkpoints at Logan Airport in Boston, where the two other 9/11 planes took off.
The year before 9/11, Securicor was allowing criminals to operate security, and three of its executives pled guilty to conspiracy. And prior to 9/11, Argenbright pled guilty to falsifying employee records so that it could hire those convicted of drug possession and assault. These facts are startling considering that, just weeks after 9/11, officials were evaluating the possibility that the hijackings might have been “inside jobs” in that “the hijackers may have had accomplices deep within the ‘secure’ areas of airports.”
Securicor faced about 30 lawsuits from victim’s families after 9/11. Another director that Condon supervised at Securicor, Trevor Dighton, said of the company’s liability – “I’m not worried about it (the litigation) one little bit. The two planes involved weren’t those that crashed into the towers – that’s the first thing.” Dighton’s confidence might have had something to do with his opinion of Condon, whom Dighton said was “brilliant and knows what he’s doing.”
Vidient director Condon came to Securicor directly from having served as the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police in London for seven years. Corruption was rampant in Condon’s police force during the time he led it. Condon himself was accused of being a racist and of withholding evidence related to the death of Princess Diana. Although the official report on the racism accusations (The MacPherson Report) found that the police force that Condon led for years was “institutionally racist,” British Home Secretary Jack Straw refused to fire Condon.
Another Vidient director working with Pillor, Clarke and Condon is Michael Sheehan, the former U.S. State Department Ambassador at Large for Counterterrorism. Sheehan was a long time member of the U.S. Army Special Forces. He also served on the National Security Council for two presidents, George H.W. Bush from 1989 to 1992, and Clinton from 1995 to 1997. After 9/11, Sheehan became the Deputy Commissioner of Counter Terrorism for the New York City police department.
Today, Sheehan is primarily associated with Torch Hill Investments. Recently, Stephen Kappes, the “unusually powerful deputy CIA director” who was also the CIA’s Associate Deputy Director of Operations for Counterintelligence from 2000 to 2002, joined Torch Hill. When signing on with Sheehan, Kappes claimed that — “Many of the al-Qaeda seniors still maintain that another crippling blow to New York City will cripple the United States. They think that this is the key.”
Hopefully, Kappes is not as good at predicting these things as Sheehan has been. After the bombing of the USS Cole, Sheehan asked Richard Clarke –“What’s it going to take to get them to hit al-Qaeda in Afghanistan? Does al-Qaeda have to hit the Pentagon?” That certainly seems like a prescient statement considering that, less than one year later, that was exactly what happened.
Speaking of the Pentagon, the little discussed British company called AMEC had some interesting personnel. It was AMEC’s subsidiary AMEC Construction NA that was responsible for reconstructing Wedge 1 of the Pentagon just before (and after) Flight 77 hit that exact spot in the building. AMEC Construction NA was also immediately hired to clean-up the WTC site at Ground Zero, within hours of the destruction there.
The British parent company, AMEC, provides “engineering and project management services to the world’s energy, power and process industries.” It is a major international player in the oil and gas industry, as well as in other natural resource industries. AMEC had a significant presence in Saudi Arabia dating back to the late 1970s, providing support to the national oil company Saudi Aramco, which is by far the richest company in the world. Executives and board members at AMEC included former directors of NM Rothschild, Kellogg Brown and Root (now Halliburton), and SG Warburg.
AMEC Construction NA was run out of Toronto, Ontario by a man named Peter Janson. The company had offices in New York, Fort Lauderdale, and Phoenix.
From 1990 to 2001, Janson was a fellow director of Donald Rumsfeld at the Swiss-Swedish engineering company, ABB. For the 11 years prior to 9/11, Rumsfeld was the only American director at ABB. In an alarming turnabout, Rumsfeld helped ABB sell nuclear technology to North Korea in 2000 and, two years later, declared the same country a terrorist state and part of the “axis of evil.”
Janson had been the president and CEO of an ABB predecessor, the Swedish company ASEA. Interestingly, ASEA had used the swastika as its company logo until the 1930s. Today, Janson is enjoying the fruits of the “War on Terror” as a director of Teekay Corporation, an oil and gas transport company that operates throughout the world. Additionally, he “reports to the Prime Minister of Canada in his role as a member of the National Advisory Board on Science and Technology.”
There will be more about AMEC and the Pentagon renovation project in future articles, but it is sufficient to say that much has been left uncovered in the official investigations into 9/11. A simple review of the people whose roles were critical to the success of the attacks, and their associations before and after 9/11, brings to light surprising connections between companies that were responsible for security and construction, and the people most responsible for protecting the nation.

July 24, 2011 @ 12:33 am
The shooting supposedly lasted for 90 minutes. The police were informed about the shooting at 17:27, and at 18:27 the perpetrator had been apprehended. When the police arrived at the scene, they were confronted with a scene of survivors begging the officers to throw away their weapons, as they were afraid that the men in uniforms would again open fire on them.
Mike Adams at “Natural News” broke the story that Fukushima may have been Japans very own 911 (below). In all the videos viewed of the tsunami coming in to Sendai, Japan, there was NO structural damage to the buildings. (This was before the tsunami hit the city). IN several videos hundreds of automobiles were lined up in parking lots in nice neat rows, and then were swept away by the waves. If this area had been hit by a 9.0 earthquake the area would have been flattened and those cars would have been flipped around like Tonka Toys. They needed to say that the earthquake was of 9.0 magnitude so that you would buy the story that the earthquake destroyed the reactors at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima.
This story was based upon an exhaustive investigation conducted by Jim Stone, former officer with the National Security Agency, and holder of “above top secret” security clearance. He is also a recognized authority in electronics, computers, and automated industrial systems. After Mike Adams published a summary of the report, that report was vetted with a number of physicists who refused to comment on Mr. Stones allegations. They would neither admit, deny, nor refute Mr. Stones allegations. This report is filled with factual data based upon the real seismic data, photographs, (many of them classified) and other very important information. Fukushima was an attack on Japan under the cover of an ecological disaster.
Below is a link to that report, and another link (below) of an interview Mr. Stone had on “feet to the fire” radio. Consider the information developed by Mr. Stone to be more than important. This information is life and death. Carefully read and consider the information in Mr. Stones report. Also, listen to the interview.
The people of this planet must wake up to the reality that we are under withering attack. And, the next attack could involve the deaths of millions.
Please circulate. Keep this information alive. And, archive the report.
Central to Mr. Jim Stones report concerning the attack at Fukushima was the role played by the Israel created computer virus known as Stuxnet. This virus is capable of disabling a nuclear power plant by taking control of key safety functions like valves in the cooling pumps, and then sending false signals to the control room operators. According to Mr. Stone there were eight fail safe back up cooling systems at Fukushima, and THREE WERE CAPABLE OF OPERATING WITHOUT ELECTRICAL POWER. These backup failsafe cooling systems run off the steam generated by the reactors. (None of this was ever reported by the controlled U.S. media). All of these backup cooling systems FAILED at Fukushima. According to Mr. Stone, (and I think he is correct), THIS COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT SABOTAGE. Mr. Stone is of the opinion that this STUXNET virus has infected nuclear reactors plants in the USA.
Right now there is a nuclear generating plant in Fort Calhoun, Nebraska, on the Missouri River, that is in serious trouble. They have had flooding, fires, and the cooling pumps, which are critical to plant safety, have failed. The big worry is the amount of water upriver. Apparently, the dams are under so much pressure there is fear that they will fail. According to the experts (see the link below), if any one dam fails, this would create a situation identical to the one that occurred in Fukushima. (See the link below).
Source: “In Discussion” hosted by David Gibbons, Co-producer, Patrick J. O’BrienEx-oilfield executive of 25 years, now human rights defender Ian Crane stated Friday during Voice America “In Discussion” radio program that the Gulf of Mexico operation was a planned population reduction event. During the program, key Gulf advocates disclosed that over 100,000 Gulf people are already plague victims, hundreds of millions more will be impacted, and BP has paid enormous sums of money to keep Gulf activists from having a voice nationally.
“BP has made sure that activists are not campaigning on a national level. They are keeping them local so the corporate world is not threatened,” Crane told show host, David Gibbons.
Hard-hitting interview comments
With capacity to apply forensic analysis to events that led to Deepwater Horizon’s destruction on April 20, Crane identified the individual ultimately responsible for what transpired in the Gulf, the man who must be required to answer deep and probing questions about his allegiances outside of BP. In a Bloomberg TV interview, this individual was described as a ‘32 year old punk’ by Matthew Simmons a few days before found dead in his hot tub.
The Gulf operation exhibits each hallmark of a contrived event and “will have long-lasting and far-reaching impact on lives of up to hundreds of millions of people” according to Crane. He had stated the same in July and since then, has given numerous Gulf catastrophe lectures to Europeans who seem keen to learn about the event than Americans.
Also interviewed by Gibbons was Scientist Wilma Subra, who has been researching the economic and human impact of the Gulf mega-catastrophe. Tens of thousands of residents, 75,000 workers, the fishermen exposed to toxins, and many children are sick - “a very, very large population,” Subra stated.
“It’s getting worse day by day.”
Gulf Plague, or “Gulf Blue Plague,” as coined by Michael Edward, typically includes various respiratory problems, tumors and cardiovascular disease according to Subra who said, “Doctors and staff say they are seeing lots of children with respiratory and skin problems.
“They treat them and they get exposed again and come back for treatment.”
Covertly Hiding Crude, Corexit and Plague with Propaganda and Silence
The third guest on Gibbon’s show, staff scientist and investigative biologist Scott Porter began his career as an oilfield consultant but is now a plague survivor. It began with the “chemical burns” but progressed to chronic irritated kidneys, prostate issues and mucous build-up. Subra tested his blood and found high level of ethylbenzyne, despite having worn a dry suit because “you are still breathing it,” as he explained.
Coastal areas were first impacted by aerosol from the oil slick dispersed by high winds according to Subra. Fishing communities, now sick, had wanted to work for BP but were not trained, not provided protective gear, exposed daily, and are severely injured. They “were made sick every day,” went back to work, and when their wives began to speak out, were told they would be fired if the wives continued telling what was happening.
Corexit is having a “profound effect on soil and air in the Gulf Coast area, and it will travel,” stated Crane, yet “outside the immediate Gulf Coast area, it is a non-event. This is ancient history. You might as well be talking about 911.”
“Some of the terminology does not help!” Crane asserted.
“When did this start getting called an ‘oil spill’? This is not a spill… This is an environmental disaster of enormous magnitude. It will reach far and wide.”
Crane highlighted poisoning occurring through seafood, now with help of the military purchasing 3,000 tons of Gulf seafood for servicemen, also selling in their commissaries.
There was much mainstream media coverage until July when federal agencies and BP announced the oil was gone, but since, Subra explained:
We’ve been left… without any information disseminated by mainstream media. Now, the Coast Guard reports that all the beaches will be OK in a month or two. If that message keeps getting out… we are going to see a huge number of people sick. They will be very, very sick.
There is poor health care. Doctors are not treating the diseases properly. They do not understand the health care needed. We are in a real need of medical care for all these people who are very, very sick.”
Although air quality is still being degraded, it is better than when oil was being burned on the Gulf according to Subra’s testing. If the Gulf oil waste is not being burned, where is it?
Porter said it looks like the Gulf oil waste is being taken to a marsh wetland – where an Indian tribe is.Adding to the ongoing misery, fisherman are still seeing aerosol spraying flights out of Gulfport nightly - all night long.
Asked about his own health that has deteriorated, Porter said, “I’m personally not receiving any help from medical doctors, but I’m using natural way to get it out of it.” He added that he knows others sick with same symptoms he has, but doctors are finding nothing because they are not looking.
Doctors are at their wits end because they cannot find anything but they are not looking for VOCs. According to Porter, it is rumored that doctors have been told not to look for VOCs compounds.
The only active role BP is going to take is pumping more money into keeping people quiet, according to Crane who believes the so-called Behavioral Health Payment, 12 million dollars for claims regarding mental health, needs investigation.
According to Crane, the Gulf operation is a classic example of the corporatist state at work.
“There is no doubt in my mind that this was a contrived event,” he said. ”I am completely disgusted with Schlumberger… To this day, Schlumberger has not appeared at hearings. There is a complete shut-down on any information. Schlumberger is worried about not going to get the contracts around the world it wants. Enormous sums of money to keep people quiet. BP will do what it takes to keep it off mainstream media.”
Porter said, “We can’t get anybody to even mention the word Corexit. I believe it’s actually worse for the environment…. There are organisms we can go look for and are not there anymore.”
“You have to mention names and hold these people accountable,” he said.
“It rips my heart out, but this is really a matter of shareholder value,” said Crane, before making the following points:
- The Corexit has not only dispersed the slick, it’s sunk it to the bottom. It has created a dead zone.
- What was gifted to LSU is only a slither of what BP has established to buy up academia right around the Gulf.
- Long-term effects are certainly known by activists but few others.
- The smoking gun is to identify beyond any shadow of a doubt what happened on the rig and hold then accountable. Schlumberger has the responsibility to share what they know about what happened before the rig blew. Instead, the Senate and everyone else has been bought off.
- The trauma is being spread. Oi – 11.2 part per parts per million.
- We will be aware of the impact of this for a long, long time.
“Would I stay [in the Gulf Region] now? Absolutely not,” said Crane, adding, “But I understand that is absolutely not possible for many people now. When it comes to health of your children and grandchildren, there is so much doubt. This whole thing is an experiment.”
Final comments from the group included:
- The people need all the information available to make their own decisions. They want to be relocated together to not lose the social fabric of community connections.
- Three Louisiana communities, Venice, Grand Isle, and Cocodrie have been hardest hit by the Gulf operation.
- “Until accountability is established – there is no hope.”
- This is a global event. Russians are looking at what happened in the Gulf – trying to cover as much of their land as possible to prevent damage from the oiled Corexit in the air and the water.
- There is a strong possibility we may be seeing some of the same effects in Europe in the near not too distant future.
“We do live in a wonderful biosphere,” Crane said. “We don’t appreciate the capacity of self-healing. While we have to play our part and could do a lot more, the planet will also play her part. I don’t feel all is lost, but we are certainly not out of the woods.”
Crane has formerly asked the hard-hitting question, ”Are we going to let the lunacy of the New World Order agenda unfold without challenge … or are we going to start taking responsibility for the future of Humanity and our planet?”
The attack on the USS Liberty by Israeli warplanes and torpedo boats on June 8, 1967 has almost faded from memory, but new evidence suggests that the White House might actually have had prior knowledge that the ship would be struck by Israel’s armed forces. In the worst attack ever carried out on a U.S. Naval vessel in peacetime, 34 American sailors and civilian personnel were killed and 171 more wounded in the two hour assault, which was clearly intended to sink the intelligence-gathering vessel operating in international waters collecting information on the ongoing Six-Day War between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
The Israelis and their supporters in the United States have always claimed the attack was a tragic mistake while many of the surviving Liberty crew believe that it was anything but: They assert that the vessel was flying an oversized American flag and was clearly identifiable as a U.S. Navy vessel. The ship’s commanding officer, Captain William McGonagle, was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor for his role in keeping the ship afloat, though President Lyndon Baines Johnson broke with tradition by refusing to hold the medal ceremony in the White House, or to award it personally, delegating that task to the Secretary of the Navy in an unpublicized presentation at the Washington Navy Yard.
The Liberty crew was sworn to secrecy over the incident and a hastily-convened court of inquiry headed by Admiral John McCain acted under orders from Washington to declare the attack a case of mistaken identity. The inquiry’s senior legal counsel Captain Ward Boston, who subsequently declared the attack to be a “deliberate effort to sink an American ship and murder its entire crew,” also described how “President Lyndon Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara ordered him to conclude that the attack was a case of ‘mistaken identity’ despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.” The court’s findings were rewritten and sections relating to possible war crimes, such as the machine-gunning of life rafts, were excised. Following in his father’s footsteps, Senator John McCain of Arizona has used his position on the Senate Armed Services Committee to effectively block any reconvening of a board of inquiry to reexamine the evidence. Most of the documents relating to the Liberty incident have never been released to the public.
One of the more intriguing allegations surrounding the Liberty incident is the claim that a United States Navy submarine was in the area when the attack took place. A number of submarine crewmen have surfaced anonymously to say that they were on one of several subs reported to be in the area on intelligence-gathering missions. Some stated their belief that photos were taken of the attack itself, but, fearing reprisals from the government, none would go public with their claims.
More recently, a crewman on the USS Amberjack, a diesel-powered intelligence-gathering sub, has provided an account of his ship’s activities on that day in June to two Liberty survivors. The sailor, Larry Bryant, agreed to go on radio with survivors Phil Tourney and Ron Kukal to discuss his experiences but inexplicably got cold feet and broke off contact. However, several extended phone conversations had already provided some intriguing insights into what had taken place.
Several Liberty crewmen reported seeing a periscope during the attack and it has generally been assumed that it was Israeli, but according to Bryant, it was actually the USS Amberjack. The submarine was near enough to the incident to clearly hear throughout the ship the reverberations of every round fired into the Liberty’s hull. The sub’s crew knew that a U.S. Navy vessel was under attack, but the Amberjack was only lightly armed and in no position to intervene. The sub remained immobile between the Liberty and some of its attackers and the sub’s crewmen feared that they themselves might be hit by the the Israeli warships’ torpedos.
As Larry Bryant was a crewman, he had no idea why the submarine was in that spot on that day, but he did note how the sub had raised its periscope and was observing the attack as it unfolded. More interestingly, the submarine had been equipped with a platform for the mounting of a video camera, which operated through the periscope and the Amberjack both filmed and photographed the entire incident. Some crewmen noted that the Liberty’s large American flag was clearly visible through the periscope during the attack, disputing the subsequent Israeli contention that the ship was not flying any flag.
The Amberjack’s Captain August Hubal, now retired and living in Virginia, has denied that his ship was anywhere near the Liberty on June 8th, but his account is contradicted by the ship’s log which confirms that it was indeed in the area. Hubal, who was described by Bryant as an obsessive, “by the rules” officer who would go to his stateroom and blow his brains out if so ordered, later warned his crew to forget about their role in the Liberty attack or face the consequences. The photos and videos of the incident made by the Amberjack were subsequently couriered to Washington by a ship’s officer, where they were turned over to the Pentagon.
Part of Hubal’s reluctance to discuss what he was doing on that day might be traced to the fact that his Read more

By Alex Thomas
February 16th, 2011
Just days after Al Hallor, San Diego assistant port director and an officer with Customs and Border Protection, admitted that weapons of “mass effect” had entered a port somewhere in the San Diego area, Dr. Vahid Majidi, the FBI’s assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate has stated that there is a 100% chance of a WMD attack in America.
Speaking to Newsmax, Dr. Majidi seemed eerily sure of an imminent attack in America.
“The notion of probability of a WMD attack being low or high is a moot point because we know the probability is 100 percent,” Majidi says. “We’ve seen this in the past, and we will see it in the future. There is going to be an attack using chemical, biological or radiological material.”
With documented evidence that Al Qaeda was created by western intelligence and that the FBI has literally given lone wolf terrorists multiple bombs, the idea that the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Directorate is openly declaring a WMD attack will happen should raise alarms throughout America.
While Majidi did say terrorists would most likely employ chemical, biological, or radiological weapons rather than a nuclear device, the idea that a major nuke could go off in an American city is nothing new.
On February 9th, ABC 10News in San Diego interviewed Al Hallor about security issues at a San Diego Port. Hallor then went on to drop a bombshell, admitting that an unamed government agency had recovered a weapon of mass effect in the last year.
Since the first report and our story, “San Diego Port Officer Says Nukes Have Been Found In An American Port,” Fox News and multiple other major outlets have ran a watered down verison of the original story.
The rumors of missing nukes, illegally transported on a B-52 from Minot AFB to Barksdale AFB in Louisiana, have lent credibilty to the fact that rogue elements within our government and the Israeli government are planning some sort of nuclear “false flag.”
In early August, Gordon Duff writing for Veterans Today warned of a possible nuclear attack which involved Israel, Pakistan and Iran.
“The National Research Council, part of the National Academy of Science, heavy on politics and light on science, announced that America was no longer able to track nukes threatening our shores. Their report titled Nuclear Forensics: A Capability at Risk, released last week, outlines the details of a secret study requested by the Departments of Homeland Security, Defense and Energy, specifically the National Nuclear Security Administration.”
Essentially the report highlighted the fact that if a nuclear bomb was detonated we would be unable to tell who made it.
“Another piece of the puzzle involved a federal task force, Defense, Energy, FBI, descending on a warehouse in Greenfield, Indiana under the guise of a “records search.” This “Waco style” assault on a facility storing furniture for college dorm rooms was much more than it seemed. No case, criminal or civil, provided any underlying reason for the search,” wrote Duff.
Listen to our early August interview with Gordon Duff here.
Similar to the months leading up to 9/11, the public is being conditioned to accept the fact that a nuclear or biological weapon of mass destruction WILL go off in an American city in the very near future. This is absolutely unacceptable considering Homeland Security is installing a police state throughout America yet somehow cannot stop cave dwelling ninjas?
The US government is offering private intelligence companies contracts to create software to manage “fake people” on social media sites and create the illusion of consensus on controversial issues.
The contract calls for the development of “Persona Management Software” which would help the user create and manage a variety of distinct fake profiles online. The job listing was discussed in recently leaked emails from the private security firm HBGary after an attack by internet activist last week.
According to the contract, the software would “protect the identity of government agencies” by employing a number of false signals to convince users that the poster is in fact a real person. A single user could manage unique background information and status updates for up to 10 fake people from a single computer.
The software enables the government to shield its identity through a number of different methods including the ability to assign unique IP addresses to each persona and the ability to make it appear as though the user is posting from other locations around the world.
Included in HBGary’s leaked emails was a government proposal for the government contract. The document describes how they would ‘friend’ real people on Facebook as a way to convey government messages. The document reads:
- “Those names can be cross-referenced across Facebook, twitter, MySpace, and other social media services to collect information on each individual. Once enough information is collected this information can be used to gain access to these individuals social circles.
- Even the most restrictive and security conscious of persons can be exploited. Through the targeting and information reconnaissance phase, a person’s hometown and high school will be revealed. An adversary can create a classmates.com account at the same high school and year and find out people you went to high school with that do not have Facebook accounts, then create the account and send a friend request. Under the mutual friend decision, which is where most people can be exploited, an adversary can look at a targets friend list if it is exposed and find a targets most socially promiscuous friends, the ones that have over 300-500 friends, friend them to develop mutual friends before sending a friend request to the target. To that end friend’s accounts can be compromised and used to post malicious material to a targets wall. When choosing to participate in social media an individual is only as protected as his/her weakest friend.”
Other documents in the leaked emails include quotes from HBGary CEO Aaron Barr saying, “There are a variety of social media tricks we can use to add a level of realness to all fictitious personas… Using hashtags and gaming some location based check-in services we can make it appear as if a persona was actually at a conference and introduce himself/herself to key individuals as part of the exercise, as one example.”
Additional emails between HBGary employees, usually originating from Barr, discuss the vulnerability social networking causes.
One employee wrote, “and now social networks are closing the gap between attacker and victim, to the point I just found (via linked-in) 112 females, wives of service men, all stationed at Hurlbert Field FL - in case you don’t know this is where the CIA flies all their “private” airlines out of. What a damn joke - the U.S. is no longer the super power in cyber, and probably won’t be in other areas soon.”
Barr also predicted a steady rise in clandestine or secret government operations to stem the flow of sensitive information. “I would say there is going to be a resurgence of black ops in the coming year as decision makers settle with our inadequacies… Critical infrastructure, finance, defense industrial base, and government have rivers of unauthorized communications flowing from them and there are no real efforts to stop it.”
The creation of internet propaganda software is only one of HBGary’s controversial activities. According to Wikileaks competitor and occasional collaborator Cryptome.org, several other progressive organizations were intended to be targeted including anti-war activist, anti-torture organizations and groups opposed to the US Chamber of Commerce.

It is now obvious Wikileaks is an intelligence operation and its frontman Julian Assange is a useful idiot.
The corporate media today is chock full of stories about the latest round of supposed diplomatic documents purloined by a low level Army intelligence analyst. According to the documents, the CIA asset al-Qaeda has managed to acquire “workable and efficient” biological and chemical weapons and the West stands on the brink of a “nuclear 9/11.” It is said the documents detail a 2009 NATO meeting where security chiefs briefed member states that al-CIA-duh was readying “dirty radioactive IEDs” to be used against British troops in Afghanistan.
Dirty bombs were debunked years ago and it is surprising the folks behind the fake diplomatic cables are attempting to pawn this fantasy off on us again as they did in 2002 when former Chicago gangbanger Jose Padilla was arrested and paraded in the corporate media as the face of al-Qaeda in America.
Once again, Pakistan figures prominently in this scary fairy tale. “Senior British defense officials have raised ‘deep concerns’ that a rogue scientist in the Pakistani nuclear program ‘could gradually smuggle enough material out to make a weapon,” according to a document detailing official talks in London in February 2009,” the Daily Telegraph reported yesterday.
Left out of the equation is the fact Pakistan would not have nuclear weapons if not for the United States.
Back in 1979, as the CIA was in the process of cobbling together the Afghan Mujahideen that would later become al-Qaeda, the globalist and Rockefeller minion Zbigniew Brzezinski forged a new policy toward the formerly pariah Islamic state. Brzezinski said “that our security policy toward Pakistan cannot be dictated by our nonproliferation policy.” Reagan also didn’t see a problem. “I just don’t think it’s any of our business,” he remarked when quizzed about Pakistan’s nuclear ambitions.
Moreover, the supposed smuggling of nuclear material out of Pakistan would face difficulty due to the fact the country’s nukes are locked down.
“Over the past six years, the Bush administration has spent almost $100 million on a highly classified program to help Gen. Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan’s president, secure his country’s nuclear weapons, according to current and former senior administration officials,” the New York Times reported on November 17, 2007. “The secret program was designed by the Energy Department and the State Department, and it drew heavily from the effort over the past decade to secure nuclear weapons, stockpiles and materials in Russia and other former Soviet states. Much of the money for Pakistan was spent on physical security, like fencing and surveillance systems, and equipment for tracking nuclear material if it left secure areas.”
In addition to dirty bombs, terrorists are planning to blow up commercial airliners with teddy bears, according to the Wikileaks documents. “Airport security staff are being urged to examine ‘children’s articles’ after US intelligence concluded that terrorists were plotting to fill them with explosive chemicals,” reports the Daily Telegraph.
Terrorists are attempting to manufacture nitrocellulose, a chemical which can become highly explosive if tightly packed. Details of how to prepare the chemical, which cannot be detected by airport X-ray machines, have been found in al-Qaeda training manuals.
You may remember the original al-Qaeda training manual. It was located in Manchester, England, and brought to our attention with much absurd fanfare. It was later revealed that the document was penned in the 1980s around the same time the CIA and Pakistan’s ISI were collaborating in Afghanistan, well before the CIA decided to create al-Qaeda from a database of Mujahideen warriors.
In short, more sexual molestation and naked body porno scanners will be required at airports if we are going to stop al-CIA-duh as it continues to plan sensationalistic terror events that either never occur or are executed by mentally impaired operatives and dim-witted patsies.
The Wikileaks documents are also designed to rekindle the hysteria manufactured by the government after September 11, 2001. According to the documents, a group of Qataris conducted surveillance on the targets of 9/11 and provided support for the phantom hijackers who were trained at U.S. military bases. “Details of the unknown 9/11 alleged plotters has never previously been disclosed,” reports the Daily Telegraph.
Here is a detail that has been previously disclosed (although assiduously ignored by the corporate media) – Osama bin Laden and the Taliban shared “intimate relations” with the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence right up until the morning of September 11, 2001, according to the most gagged woman in America, former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds.
The CIA groomed manufactured enemies from China to Chechnya, Albania, and Kosovo, Edmonds revealed, but you won’t find that in Assange’s mass of documents.
For all its dutiful work in the service of the globalist empire, Wikileaks has been nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian politician Snorre Valen, who said the shady outfit played an instrumental role in freedom of speech.
“WikiLeaks is one of this century’s most important contributors to freedom of speech and transparency,” the NTB news agency quoted Valen as saying today.
It also played a role in perpetuating cover stories used by government as pretexts to further erode our liberties and engage in wanton mass murder around the world.keep looking »
