Physicist whistleblower David Lewis Anderson confirms existence of US government's time travel technology
More about time travel here, here and here.
What is going on at Pine Gap, Australia? A US Air Force Colonel is in a deep underground facility in Nevada, USA. He walks through a door. Two minutes later he is on the other side of the planet in Pine Gap, Australia.
...(...) There are at least ten top secret American facilities in Australia with the so- called ’Joint defense Space Research Facility’ at Pine Gap outside Alice Springs being classified as the most important. At the time the agreement to establish Pine Gap was signed by the Australian government it’s purpose was to control and act as a downlink for geosynchronous satellites stationed over the Pacific and Asia.
The American agencies involved with this intelligence gathering are the CIA, NSA and the NRO. However there were other reasons for establishing the base which have never been fully revealed to the Australian government. The agreement clearly stated that it was not a requirement for the U.S.A. to share all information with Australia. In fact when the Whitlam government came to power in 1972 what little information that was being shared with the Australian Defense Signals Directorate (DSD) was reduced to a trickle and at one time, prior to 1975, stopped altogether.
The main reasons for Pine Gap being situated where it is are proximity to the Pacific and Indian Oceans and Asia, it’s Southern hemispheric window to outer space, it’s position on the earth’s surface in relation to other important areas situated on the planet, it’s isolation and the fact it is situated in an area of low electromagnetic radiation.
Construction of the base was undertaken by American contractors who flew in their own workforce from the U.S.A. on a shift basis. No Australians were involved in the construction work which took around two years before the base became operational. Construction work continued for several years on large underground facilities which are rumoured to extend some twelve levels below the base. Long tunnels are laid out in a pattern similar to the spokes of a wheel and extend several miles from the center of the base.
In a deep shielded underground chamber a nuclear reactor similar in size to those used to power submarines was installed to drive large AC and DC generators. This fact has been kept secret as it was quite illegal for such equipment to be operated without an act of parliament changing the existing laws relating to the installation of nuclear power stations in Australia. But when it’s all secret in the first place who needs to get permission? The Pine Gap base also has an above ground diesel powered generating station which, it is claimed, is the only power station there. If that is so why is it shut down most of the time? If you need an electromagnetic free area you don’t build a power station in the middle of it. Of course it can be used when the base was not operating but then what keeps everything running when it is turned off-- batteries? Pine Gap is not connected to an outside electricity supply.
Reportedly, extending some twenty thousand feet below the base is a bore hole containing an ultra low frequency antenna which is apparently used for secret experiments supposedly related to Nikola Tesla’s resonance theories as well as low frequency communications throughout the world. Pine Gap’s communication systems are the most sophisticated available utilizing satellites, microwave, low frequency and their own dedicated cable to the U S.A. Also they are directly connected to Nurrunga, North West Cape, Geraldton, Australian Defense Signals Directorate in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, all CIA and NSA stations, ASIO, SIS and perhaps one of the most interesting secret departments of all, the Australian Defense Science and Technology Organization which deals with U.F.O.’s and crash retrievals.
The number of staff at Pine Gap varies between four hundred to five hundred at any one time and all except a liaison officer and his small staff are Americans. ...(...)
"JOHN BEDELL AND JOE STACK WERE NOT TERRORISTS, THEY WERE GOOD FRIENDS OF MINE."
Posted By: hobie <Send E-Mail> Date: Saturday, 6-Mar-2010 23:47:37
Hi, Folks - Several of us received this write-up today. WE HAVE NO WAY TO KNOW WHETHER IT'S TRUE OR NOT.
For those who do not know......
Joe Stack was the guy who flew a airplane into the IRS building in Austin,Texas.
And John Bedell was the guy who shot a guard at the Pentagon.
John Bedell and Joe Stack were not terrorist, they were good friends of mine. In 1996, we met at an embedded systems conference in Sacramento. I do not feel like typing out all the details, but we hit it off right from the beginning. We begin analysing networks together and by 2002, Joe and I were able to penetrate just about any network connected to the Internet. The correspondence between John, Joe, and I eventually came to a halt, but in February, 2007 I get a call from Joe telling me that we needed to talk in person. I met with him and he spilled his guts to me. He told me about all the unlawful and clandestine operations our government was involved with and also informed me of the level of corruption that has manifested itself in capitol hill. He suggested that we find out what was going on by infiltrating the CIA's as well as the NSA's networks. I was really hesitant about it, but Joe told me that John was on board and pointed me to this website and a couple of others as a nudge of encouragement.
My wife had recently passed and I really felt like I had nothing to lose, so the day after his proposal, and after countless hours of pouring over conspiracy theories, I accepted. It was not because my moral standards were as high as Joe's, but more that my wife's death had take a tremendous toll on me, and I went into it for the thrill (it kept my mind preoccupied and off my wife). That was the last time I saw Joe face to face. I did not see John face to face throughout the entire operation, but we communicated through digital mediums.
Joe was the lead man. He orchestrated the entire event, and delegated tasks to people. I am a mathematics professor with a focus in cryptology, so Joe put me in charge of cryptography. I set up secure lines of communication and ran crypt-analysis on ciphered keys John sniffed off the networks. John was in charge of pen testing. If you are going to get caught, it will be during pen testing, since this the most intrusive part of the entire process. It had been years since we had worked together as a team, and Joe and John were not up to date on the latest network and software security practices. We started on private networks and worked our way up to large corporations. By 2009 we were prepared to undertake the task at hand.
Joe kept things compartmentalised during the operation. We were given information on a need to know basis. I do not know what methods Joe used to attack what networks, or even what files he was after, I was only given cipher-texts and expected to return the clear-text. John was in charge of anti-forensics and clean-up. But, I knew something went wrong when Joe called me. I immediately knew right off the bat that something was amiss, when I heard John in the background. That was our number one rule: no face-to-face contact. His first words, "It's way bigger than anybody could have ever dreamed. Look at today's date. Listen to the audio-file I just sent you and then look at the time-stamp and at today's date again". I honestly thought I was busted. I thought it was a government agent trying to be funny.
The date was February 15, and, I will not ever forget this,
the audio file was last modified about an hour before I listened to it.
The clip was of the end of a hockey game and as the commentator wrapped
things up, he said something along the lines of "Thrasers: 7, Kings: 6.
Thanks for listening to us on this Monday night". At first I didn't
understand. I didn't even have a clue as to what was going on until Joe
sent me more of the archives which had every digital video, and audio,
broadcasts for events that were supposed to happen tomorrow, but had
not happened yet. Confirmation finally came that this was not just some
sort of hoax database kept for fun, when we tuned into the
Thrashers-Kings game and the final score was Thrashers: 7, Kings: 6.
This is my insurance. They have already kill Joe and John, and in such a way that they made them out to be monsters to the public. They will not do this to me. This is the way it works. If they kill me, abduct me or anything, all evidence including the properly derived Lorrentz transformations are to be automatically posted here. I must be present at my computer at 5:29 a.m. (my timezone) everyday in order to keep this posts from happening because 174 servers spanning the globe are set to ensure that happens automatically unless my password is entered. If the government tries to take this site out or this page, I have created a virus that will spread on a massive scale and automatically upload all the evidence I have against them to the victims PC, so at the very least thousands will know the truth but most likely millions. My password cannot be cracked. It would take longer to crack an 8096 bit RSA encryption key, than my self-made encryption system. My initials are T.S.G. and I am a Mathematics professor.
This shall ensure if they kill me and try to slander my name in the media, there will be at least a few people who know the truth I'm not telling everything here because then they would kill me. It's the only bargaining chip I have left.
As Predicted, Pentagon Shooting (( Bedellstory )) Blamed On 9/11 Truth
'Just two days after we warned of false flag domestic attacks that would be blamed on the federal government’s political adversaries were all but inevitable, a Californian man attacked the Pentagon last night in a shooting that wounded two police officers and has since been blamed on the John Patrick Bedell’s advocacy for 9/11 truth.
On Wednesday we explained how a Southern Poverty Law Center report which demonized We Are Change 9/11 truth organizations in the same breath as violent racist skinhead groups was part of a preparatory set-up for violent domestic acts that would be blamed on anti-government extremists. We pointed out that since examples of Americans committing violence in pursuit of their political beliefs, FBI patsy Timothy McVeigh aside, were thin on the ground, organizations like the SPLC were begging for such incidents to occur in order to provide the federal government with the pretext to crack down on dissent and silence free speech on the Internet.'
Paul Joseph Watson Prison Planet.com Friday, March 5, 2010
....(...) Low and behold, last night 36-year-old John Patrick Bedell calmly walked up to a subway station immediately adjacent to the Pentagon building, pulled out a gun and opened fire at point blank range. “He walked up very cool. He had no real emotion on his face,” said Richard Keevill, chief of Pentagon police. Two officers were injured before Bedell was gunned down and later confirmed dead in the early hours of the morning.
Authorities said they were investigating reports of a second man at the scene who was apparently aiding the shooter. As is routine, people who knew Bedell expressed shock that he would attempt such an attack.
“He just seemed like a normal guy to me,” Ronald Domingues said. “I wouldn’t suspect he would be involved in anything like this.”
Under the headline, Pentagon Shooter Railed Against U.S. on Internet, the Associated Press reports that one of the primary motivations for the attack was Bedell’s “Resentment of the U.S. government and suspicions over the 9/11 attack.” “Signs emerged that Bedell harbored ill feelings toward the government and the armed forces, and had questioned the circumstances behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks,” according to the article.
Bedell was also “determined to see that justice is served,” according to another Internet posting, in response to the death of Marine Col. James Sabo, which was ruled a suicide but suspected by Bedell to be a cover-up.
“Officials said they’d found no immediate connection to terrorism but had not ruled it out,” states the report.
The proximity of the incident to the release of the SPLC report is seamless and the implication is clear – anyone who demands that ‘justice be served’ in response to government corruption or anyone who demands the truth behind 9/11 be made public is a dangerous extremist who is likely to go on a shooting rampage.
The media attempted to craft a similar scenario following the Richard Poplawski shooting, which killed three Pittsburgh police officers, despite the fact that the incident arose as a result of a domestic dispute between Poplawski and his mother, and not as a consequence of Poplawski’s political beliefs, as the media attempted to spin the events.
The debunkers and the establishment can now have a field day with the Pentagon shooting and use it to make the case that 9/11 truthers are violent and should be silenced, ignoring the fact that not a single 9/11 truther has committed an act of violence in pursuit of their beliefs, and despite efforts to frame 9/11 truther Gary Talis when he was falsely accused of attacking a girl in a wheelchair. Talis was acquitted by a New York jury despite New York police officers and one Secret Service agent lying in claiming Talis had assaulted the girl when in fact he was the one being assaulted by the girl’s father.
There can be little doubt that we will see more incidents like last night’s shooting and, whether genuine or staged, they will be exploited to the maximum by the establishment media and the government to portray anyone who questions 9/11 and anyone who expresses “resentment” about how they have been looted for trillions of dollars as violent extremists who need to be silenced.
Such incidents will dovetail perfectly with the rapid advancement of cybersecurity and Internet censorship laws that will force people to obtain licenses to exercise free speech on the web, while providing Homeland Security with the perfect pretext to increase surveillance of all Internet traffic and communications.

DAVID ICKE'S SENSATIONAL NEW BOOK NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER TO ENSURE A COPY FROM THE FIRST PRINT RUN
The book is estimated to be ready for shipping at the end of
A Monumental Work /// What is the 'Moon Matrix'? ((..(..) His most staggering revelation is that the Earth and the collective human mind is manipulated from the Moon, which, he says, is not a ‘heavenly body’, but an artificial construct – a gigantic ‘spacecraft’ (probably a hollowed-out 'planetoid') – which is home to the extraterrestrial group that has been manipulating humanity for aeons.
He describes what he calls the ‘Moon Matrix’, a fake reality broadcast from the Moon which is decoded by the human body/mind in much the same way as portrayed in the Matrix movie trilogy. The Moon Matrix has ‘hacked’ into the human ‘body-computer’ system, he says, and it is feeding us a manipulated sense of self and the world 24/7.
We live in extraordinary times. On one side we are seeing the imposition of a global Orwellian State of total surveillance and control by those who serve the Moon Matrix, and on the other a fantastic energetic transformation is taking place – what David calls the ‘Truth Vibrations’, a phenomenon he first predicted in 1990 and used as the title of his first book after his ‘eyes opened’. The Truth Vibrations are awakening vast numbers of people to remember who they really are – infinite, eternal Consciousness.
Humanity is at a fork in the road and it is time to make a choice. ..(...) ))

WHAT ARE WE DEALING WITH HERE? ...
The American and British authorities, political and military, knew exactly what the consequences would be for future generations of Iraqi children from contaminating the country with depleted uranium. They knew, not least, because it has happened before.
But they don’t care, because they have no empathy. Why would a political and military establishment absolutely awash with paedophiles and Satanists (again, two expressions of lack of empathy) care about dead or suffering children in Iraq?
They couldn’t give a damn. This is why the truly evil Tony Blair could appear before the pathetic Iraq ‘inquiry’ in London and refuse even to apologise for the all the death, suffering and mayhem he was central to causing. Even more than that, he used (was allowed to use) much of his time before the ‘inquiry’ to call for the same to be done to Iran. These people have the same relationship to decency, empathy and justice that black holes have to matter. The bedfellow of a lack of empathy is the me, me, me mentality. The two always go together. I have known people with this combination at close hand. Their lack of empathy with others means that what is right and just does not matter to them – only what is best for them in the situation they face.
Shocking birth defects in Iraqi children – and, staggeringly, there are far, far worse than this. Some of them are beyond belief.

Utah Law Would Shield Paedophiles Friday, 05 March 2010 11:04
'In a classic "misdirect" that claims to benefit victims, the State of Utah is considering a law that would make interviews with victims of abuse off limits to the media, including this site. With a legal system that continues to protect the perpetrators at the expense of the victims, Utah is seeking to take away the only tool left for dealing with these Satanic and Psychopathic Deviants, public exposure and humiliation of the perpetrators.
Lets face it folks, freedom of speech and of the Press no longer exists in the traditional, Illuminati owned media. It does. however, exist on the internet on sites like this one. As I have stated in the past, the only ones that seek to protect perpetrators are other perpetrators. Utah's history in dealing with Satanic Ritual and Sex Abuse is as jaded as its history of political corruption. Anne's story is a classic case of not prosecuting Satanists in politically corrupt Utah.' (( see below))
...(...) True, Illuminati Satanism is practiced by only 1% of the population, but that 1% is now in control of 90% of the world's wealth and political systems. I don't blame the Mormon Church. From what I have seen they have always turned over the perpetrators to the legal system. But, they don't elect the politicians. The people of Utah do.
I have attended many meetings where the Church leadership has boldly spoken out against homosexuality, pedophilia and pornography without mincing words. I have also seen people excommunicated for these practices and kicked out of the Church. I blame the now corrupt Utah legal system and its equally corrupt political structure for protecting these miscreants. The Mormon Church doesn't need to be fixed, .... the Illuminati controlled corporate media, co-opted politicians and prosecutors, and Illuminati appointed Judges are where the heart of the real problem lies.
With the popular uprising in Scotland now underway over the Holly Grieg sexual abuse case (thanks to this site and others) don't think that the same thing can't or will not happen in Utah. Good people will not tolerate great evil when it is right before their eyes. They will rise up and do what they can to extinguish it, as they should.
So, with that in mind, if you have been victimized by Satanic Ritual abuse in Utah, and want to name names and expose the evil doers just e-mail me at pdrockton@..... They can run things, but they can't hide from the wrath of public opinion.
Anne Davis: Utah Ritual Abuse Victim: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/1,5143,705269563,00.html
'In the October 2009 print edition of the UK Column, we reported in our article "BBC Hides Truth of Girl’s Sexual Abuse Ordeal" the shocking ordeal of a girl with Down's Syndrome, Hollie Greig, who was horribly abused by an Aberdeen pedophile ring, over a period of ten years. After investigating and planning a documentary, the BBC abruptly dropped the case, despite admitting that Hollie was a reliable and accurate witness. It is important to stress that both the police and qualified medical experts have described Hollie as a competent and entirely honest witness.
From the age of just six, Hollie was repeatedly sexually
abused by her father, Denis Charles Mackie. Later, Mackie began sharing
his daughter with a gang of pedophile "swingers" that has been
operating in Aberdeen, Scotland for many years. The identities of a
further seven child victims are already known. There is no question
that the gang is well connected, efficiently organized and totally
?? The UK Column is aware that investigators have just
received from the Crown Office, after years of rebuttals, the Post
Mortem report of Robert David Greig, brother of Hollie’s mother Anne.
Robert died mysteriously in an alleged car fire in 1997. Despite
extreme inconsistencies in witness statements and circumstances, no
inquest took place and the cause of death was officially due to smoke

(( http://www.conspiracyplanet.com/channel.cfm?channelid=126&contentid=6566&page=2 ))
'The emphasis here is that word used in Scotland called "Compassion".....where was Alex Salmond's compassion when he heard of the Hollie's ordeal? How come so much attention for Megrahi who only had a couple of month's to live (allegedly) and yet we are now in February 2010 almost 6 months on and our man is still alive and kicking down in Libya. I repeat that maybe this man was innocent but none the less he was convicted and the Scottish Government gave this man freedom on the grounds of compassion due to his terminal illness. Hollie Greig went to hell and back whilst under the sadistic control of her Father and the extended ring of pedophiles that prayed on her on almost a daily basis.
It would appear that the Scottish Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill is linked to Lord Advocate's choice of lawyers. Amazingly, it can now be revealed the Scottish Government's current Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill has long standing ties to Levy & McRae, the same law firm used by the Lord Advocate to threaten media publication of the Hollie Greig Case.'

The Picture Monday, 01 March 2010 08:08 By David Glenn Cox
'I want you to look very closely at this picture and try and keep it in your minds eye. This was a perfectly healthy twenty two-year-old young man who in the service of his country got half of his head blown off. I think that’s important, I think that’s newsworthy. Let me tell you how newsworthy I think it is. I think that it’s more important than chocolate cake recipes and far more important than comic book reviews. It is more important than who fell and whose swell at the winter Olympic games.
It is far more important than any self-serving load of crap banged out by Pseudo doctor Amy. It is more important than American Idol or Lost or any other mindless goat droppings the public chooses to chew on. This is some American mother’s son, her little boy, he may be gay or straight or transgender but his life is fucked forever.
How did this come to happen to this poor mother’s son? It came to happen because the people in the media who are supposed to foster a public debate on such public issues as war instead used their franchise to promote articles about chocolate cake and comic book reviews. They see their free press as free to choose not to look when bad thinks happen. They feel no need to explain to his parents or to anyone that the war that blew off half of this poor boys head , was based on out and out lies.' ...(...) Do you care? I’ve been married twice for a combined twenty-five years and in that time I doubt my wives ever baked a chocolate cake. I don’t read comic books or watch goat crap TV
but you see I’ve got a son about this boy’s age. My heart aches and my mind fills with rage because the people that have the power and authority to show this picture would rather talk about American Idol
and from where I sit that makes them an accomplice to a war crime.
Because not content to ignore the current victims they support more crimes and call for more wars. Several years ago in Iraq parents waited for their children at a bus stop. An errant coalition missile struck the bus stop and blew the elementary school age children to pieces. Needless to say this wasn’t widely reported but the parents in a frenzy began fighting over the body parts of their children. Little arms and legs, little headless torsos identifiable only by the shirt or dress they were wearing. Imagine the horror, imagine the type of people who could do such a thing. How do they live with themselves? How do they sleep at night? They do it by watching Lost and American Idol and by eating chocolate cake. They read comic books and watch sports. It makes life easy because the media will not intrude on their fantasy world but instead will promote the fantasy. Oh, but who won the gold metal in curling (( or Olympics Games ))
and who was eliminated on American Idol.

Canadian Troops Told to Ignore Child Rape by Afghan Allies.
'As reported last fall in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, Canadian military chaplins and some soldiers have been complaining as far back as 2006 that Afghan security forces have been sodomizing young boys on their base. These military whistle-blowers charge that the military brass has been ignoring or burying their complaints, fearing the bad publicity they could generate.
The paper reports that Canadian military police have also complained, as reported by Brig.-Gen. J.C. Collin, commander of Land Force Central Area, that they were being told "not to interfere in incidents in which Afghan forces were having sex with children".'
1-2-3 What Are We Fighting For? This? By Dave Lindorff
The stated goal of the US-led War in Afghanistan, according to the Obama Administration, is to defeat the Taliban and establish a stable democratic government over the entire country. Critical to that goal is establishing a professional Afghan army and police force that is not corrupt, and that has the respect of the Afghan people.
But reports out of Canada suggest that far from creating such a military and police force, the so-called International Security and Assistance Force (ISAF) is turning a blind eye to the thuggish criminality of those organizations, both to avoid growing opposition in ISAF member countries, and to avoid offending those organizations in Afghanistan.
The issue in question is routine rape and sodomy of children by Afghan soldiers and police operating on Canadian-run bases in the Kandahar region.
As reported last fall in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, Canadian military chaplins and some soldiers have been complaining as far back as 2006 that Afghan security forces have been sodomizing young boys on their base. These military whistle-blowers charge that the military brass has been ignoring or burying their complaints, fearing the bad publicity they could generate.
The paper reports that Canadian military police have also complained, as reported by Brig.-Gen. J.C. Collin, commander of Land Force Central Area, that they were being told "not to interfere in incidents in which Afghan forces were having sex with children."
According to the paper, the Canadian military command has argued that, even though sex with children is against the law in Afghanistan, the practice is culturally accepted and that the Canadian forces "should not get involved in what should be seen as a "cultural' issue."
Makes you wonder what other "cultural" issues involving Afghan security forces that the Western occupiers might not want to get involved in. Perhaps the oppression of women? That's certainly part of the culture. How about bribery and extortion? Based on the evidence--that the police in Afghanistan are a wholly corrupt entity, and that the army is not much better--arguing that corruption is "culturally acceptable" would be easy to do. How about drug dealing? Again, that appears to be quite the culture in Afghanistan.
Kudos to the Canadian grunts, MPs and chaplins who found the sexual abuse of children more than they could stomach, and who brought their concerns to public attention at home in Canada when their own commanders sought to cover it up.
It makes me wonder, though, why here in the hyper-moralizing US, we haven't heard a peep from our troops about similar behavior by Afghan forces on US-run bases.
It's hard to believe that a practice so common on a Canadian base that it provoked such outrage among Canadian soldiers is not also occurring elsewhere.
This leaves us with two possiblities: US soldiers and marines are just not as willing to go outside the chain of command and go public with their complaints, or
The US media are not interested in investigating this kind of story. It involves only Afghans, and who cares about Afghans? What American journalism covers is Americans. (Remember the big spate of stories about the sex escapades of guards at the US embassy in Kabul?) I'd say it's probably a combination of the two.....**....
At any rate, the picture painted of Afghanistan's army and police in the Ottawa Citizen article does not bode well for any plan that hinges on their taking over from US and ISAF troops any time soon...or for the fate of young children of Afghanistan, if and when they do.

The Moral Dimension of Things: Why are Political Leaders Lying
Most of the Time?
by Prof. Rodrigue Tremblay Global Research, March
4, 2010 and
'Indeed, when the stench of moral decay becomes overwhelming, bad things inevitably follow. Historically, it can be shown that when the moral environment in a society is deteriorating, problems tend to pile up. We are presently living in one of those times, characterized by deep and entrenched political corruption, by routine abuse of power and disregard for the rule of law in high places, and by unchecked greed, fraud and deception in the economic sphere. The results are all there to see: Severe and prolonged economic and financial crises, rising social inequalities and social injustice, increasing intolerance toward individual choices, the disregard for environmental decay, the rise of religious absolutism, a return to whimsical wars of aggression (or of pre-emptive wars), to blind terrorism and to the repugnant use of torture, and even to genocide and to blatant war crimes. These are all indicators that our civilization has lost its moral compass.
With all these throwbacks to an unpalatable past, it is not surprising there is a resurgence of interest nowadays for questions of morality and of ethics.'

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Reserves the Right to Nuclear First
Global Research, March 5, 2010 ((and Vedomosti http://www.vedomosti.ru/eng/ ))
MOSCOW - 'The approval of a new United States nuclear doctrine has been postponed for another month. The military had taken almost a year to prepare it. The initial wording, in which America renounces any pre-emptive strike, avowing instead to use nuclear weapons only in response to attack, was rejected by President Barack Obama.
The draft makes it clear that the emphasis is on non-nuclear weapons, including missile defense in the Persian Gulf in direct proximity to Iran. The Quadrennial Defense Review, unveiled last month, provides for the development of a new class of non-nuclear missiles capable of reaching a target anywhere in the world in less than an hour.
According to Kommersant's sources, this type of defense system, called "Prompt Global Strike", would be deployed on U.S. territory. Launch sites would be open to international inspectors, including those from Russia, who would be able to see that the missiles carry no nuclear warheads. As conceived by the U.S. military, such weapons would be able to deliver a massive strike on Al-Qaeda positions in Afghanistan or prevent the launch of a North Korean missile.
Pentagon supporters of this new defense system are confident that these missiles will achieve the same effect as nuclear weapons without escalating conventional warfare into a full-scale nuclear war. As a result, the U.S. administration is going to suggest a new concept of deterrence which allows states developing various kinds of weapons of mass destruction, ranging from chemical to bacteriological, to be held in check, without resorting to nuclear weapons.
But the fundamental point that President Obama must answer as he presents the final version of the doctrine is: why America needs nuclear weapons? Experts think this is far from being an idle question. Daryl Kimball, director of the Arms Control Association, says any suggestion that deterring a nuclear attack is the main objective of the U.S. nuclear arsenal signals there are also other objectives. And this, he adds, does not tally well with the speech made by President Obama in Prague a year ago
where he proposed a plan for the global destruction of nuclear weapons.
One in Three Killed by U.S. Drone Attacks In Pakistan Are
Civilians ((with map))
'One out of every three people killed by unmanned US Predator drones in Pakistan is a civilian, according to a new report that highlights the collateral damage caused by the targeting of Taliban and “Al Qaeda” operatives with missiles.
The report by Washington think tank The New America Foundation has found that 32% of the more than 1,200 people killed since 2004 were innocent bystanders rather than dangerous terrorists.'//////
Thinktank report figures highlight increasing frequency of missile deaths
Steve Watson Prisonplanet.com Thursday, March 4th, 2010
....(...) The nonpartisan public policy institute based it’s research on media accounts from sources including the New York Times, Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse, CNN, the BBC, in addition to reports in the leading English-language newspapers in Pakistan, as well as coverage by the largest independent Pakistani television network.
“Our study shows that the 114 reported drone strikes in northwest Pakistan, including 18 in 2010, from 2004 to the present have killed approximately between 834 and 1,216 individuals,” the report by Peter Bergen and Katherine Tiedemann states.
“…around 549 to 849 were described as militants in reliable press accounts, about two-thirds of the total on average. Thus, the true civilian fatality rate since 2004 according to our analysis is approximately 32 percent.” the study concludes.
The thinktank has produced an interactive map that shows the location and details of each reported strike. Click the image below to access the map:...(...)
Of course, given that these figures are based on public media reports of drone attacks only, the actual figures of civilian deaths are likely to be much higher.
Indeed, reports last year drawn up by Pakistani authorities indicated that close to 700 civilians had already perished, with just 14 wanted Al Qaeda leaders killed in the attacks...
The frequency of unmanned drone attacks has increased, as expected, under the Obama administration, with 53 reported attacks last year; more than were carried out during the entirety of George W. Bush’s two four year terms in office.
This is one campaign promise Obama has kept, as he admitted that he would seek to expand the U.S. led war on terror into Pakistan should he be elected.
In January, Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama requested a record defense budget, the bulk of which will be used to acquire more pilotless Predator and Reaper drones.
Reports last December revealed that drone strikes are set to be expanded again, this time into Pakistan’s Baluchistan province for the first time, and into the country’s cities.
The U.S. still officially refuses to acknowledge the existence of any unmanned drone program inside Pakistan.
The reason for this is simple – even if you discount the hundreds of innocent lives lost in the attacks, the strikes still amount to unlawful extra-judicial killing of militants. They also infringe the national sovereignty of Pakistan and constitute an act of war.
While Pakistani authorities have consistently voiced public opposition to cross border missile strikes, which have killed hundreds of innocent civilians, the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee has stated that the Pakistani government is actively facilitating the attacks by providing bases from which to launch the drones.
The New America Foundation report concludes that although civilian casualty figures are high, they do not believe their study will influence the U.S. military to reconsider their use.
“Despite the controversy drone strikes are likely to remain a critical tool for the United States to disrupt Al Qaeda and Taliban operations and leadership structures,” it states.

Posted,March 6, 2010 6:32 AM Marine Colonel James Sabow death case.
Written,March 5, 2010
The suspect who opened fire on two security guards at an entrance to the Pentagon died at hospital. He was injured by the return fire of other guards, standing there.
The injured guards are stable and out of danger. He did not give them any clue of attack. He just approached the security guards near gate and started firing. The suspect was identified as an American citizen named John Patrick Bedell and he was 36-year-old. The death news has been confirmed by the U.S. Defence Department Headquarters, too.
The chief, in his statement, said that they were investigating the matter and were trying to find out the root causes of the reasons behind this frustration.
John Patrick was not a “terrorist” he was a common man who had nothing to do with violence and terrorism but just he was not convinced with the commission reports about September 11 terrorist attacks on New York.
In an internet posting, he mentioned that Marine Colonel James Sabow death case made him to establish the truth of events such as the September 11 demolitions. Marine Colonel James Sabow was found dead in the backyard of his home in California in 1991 and investigators had referred his death as suicide but that’s not true. There are several theories about the Colonel James death.
President Obama is being briefed on this case by the FBI officials and they are providing him with updates of the case at White House.
States Marine Colonel James E. Sabow was murdered sometime between 0835 and 0900 on January 22, 1991. The murder occurred in the backyard of his home on the El Toro MCAS during the height of Desert Storm. Security on the base was much tighter than usual, yet, somehow the assailant or assailants managed to carry out the homicide. The Department of Defense (DoD), despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, has maintained that Colonel Sabow committed suicide.
Colonel Sabow flew more than 200 missions in Vietnam. ....(...)
Posted,March 5, 2010 12:11 PM Pentagon Shootout: Gunman Killed After Shooting Two Police Officers
NED POTTER, MICHAEL S. JAMES, RICHARD ESPOSITO and LUIS MARTINEZ
Written,March 4, 2010
The gunman who opened fire at the Pentagon Thursday night, injuring two police officers, died of a gunshot wound to the head after police returned fire, authorities said Friday morning.
Investigators are looking into online rants against the government as a potential motive.
John Patrick Bedell, 36, of Hollister, Calif., died at the hospital Thursday night after Pentagon police returned fire. Police told ABC News that the two police officers wounded in the shooting have been released from the hospital after suffering minor injuries. They are now on administrative leave pending the investigation of the incident, police said.
The two officers were identified as Jeffrey Amos and Marvin Carraway. One was hit in the shoulder, the other in the thigh.
"Those injuries were grazing injuries," said Pentagon Police Chief Richard S. Keevill. "The police officers were able to return fire." ....(...)

Comment: SOTT would like to point out that Gates' remark about reducing population followed immediately upon his listing of "reproductive health services", and that is obviously what he was referring to - at least consciously. However, there may be a link between vaccines and reducing population, and Bill may be aware of that, thus, the way he grouped the elements he mentioned.

Russell Tribunal aims to hold the international
community to account
Israel is continuously violating the principles of the 1949 Geneva Conventions that sought to ensure crimes against humanity would never happen again. (Oren Ziv/ActiveStills)
Today, the first session of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine (RTP) will be held in Barcelona. The RTP is a peoples' tribunal focusing not on Israel's obligations under international humanitarian law (IHL) such as the Fourth Geneva Convention, but on the obligations of the international community of signatory states which sustain and enable Israel's continuous violations of international law....(...) The RTP is composed of four sessions. The first in Barcelona from 1-3 March, focuses on establishing whether the European Union as an entity has fulfilled its obligations under international law. At the end of 2010, a London session will scrutinize the complicity of corporations in normalizing and perpetuating Israel's violations of international law as well as labor rights in Palestine/Israel. In mid-2011, a session in South Africa will examine the applicability of the crime of apartheid in the context of Israel. The final session will be held in the United States in late 2011 and will analyze the role of the US within the United Nations and decision-making processes on issues of violating international law.,,,(....)

Before Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) even began members of the Ontario Legislature and the Canadian Parliament are falling all over each other to denounce it. I can't remember another time when elected legislators formally denounced a student activity like this. Perhaps during the 1950's when McCarthyism was rampant but that was before my time. Last week the Ontario Legislature unanimously passed a resolution denouncing Israel Apartheid Week submitted by PC Peter Shure, who said calling Israel an apartheid state was "close to hate speech."
...(...) What needs to be investigated here are the financial connections on 911, point in fact, who profited from the deaths of these 343 firemen and why were they sent back into the building? They were sent back into the building because they were witnesses to whatever took down the buildings, they were expert witnesses and the operations and assassination teams probably hired out of the profits from catastrophe bonds taken out on these buildings made sure they were in place when the buildings were destroyed.
The New York City Fire Department Pension Fund (FDTF) provides pension benefits for full time uniform employees of New York City Fire Department. The firefighter's higher ups were totally compromised on 911 because they profited from the deaths of their subordinates. They are under duress and cannot say a word.....(...)

The Amero plan is back, this time backed by gold: BIS source
The US dollar is about to be replaced by the Amero at a rate of two dollars to one Amero, according to a high level financial source in Switzerland. The Amero will replace the US and Canadian dollars and the Mexican peso, he says.
It will be backed by Mexican and Canadian gold, the source adds.
The decision was made at a high level within the Western secret government, he says. The introduction of the Amero will be followed by a dismantling of the Federal Reserve Board, he says. Once the announcement is made, people will have exactly 30 days to convert their dollars to Ameros before the dollars become worthless.
The Western government does not want to cede control of its financial system to China so a decision was made to go with the gold-backed Amero, he says.
Of course many holders of dollars may decide to opt away from the Amero and trade their dollars for other currencies, notably the Chinese yuan and the Hong Kong dollar.
We will seek to confirm this news from other sources and will provide updates if necessary. Posted at 16:22 | Permalink
