\plain\f2\fs20 \par Israel plays an essential role in the secret plans for one-world government because of its geo-strategic location on the vital land bridge between Europe, Africa, and Asia. Control of this land of Israel can dominate the Persian oil fields and the Suez Canal that is vital for European and African trade. That is why Russia and America both demand the right to cosponsor the Middle East Peace talks. It also explains the tremendous financial support and enormous arms shipments by both superpowers to this volatile area over the last four decades. Of the top twenty arms importing nations in the world, seven are in the Middle East. Though Israel is one of the smallest nations in the world and its land is mostly desert, even the distant nations of China, India, and Japan are moving to take their place at the peace table to determine the final settlement. The European Community recently demanded that they join the Middle East Peace talks as a cosponsor. Israel, with only 8,000 square miles and a population of five million citizens, contains less that one-tenth of one percent of the population of earth. Despite its insignificant size, a multitude of debates, conferences, and resolutions focus on this small country every year. Jerusalem, the spiritual home of three great religions, has captured the attention of the world's citizens. To further complicate matters, what would happen on September 11 would horrify and change the world. Even more intriguing is the plane crash of November 12 dominating the news media and public opinion just when the Florida election debaucle was about to rear its ugly head again. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par CHICAGO (CBS.MW) -- Temporarily lost in the aftermath of Sept. 11, what could be one of the biggest news stories of the year is about to break. Beginning in February, the National Opinion Research Center, working at the behest of a consortium of media companies, labored for months to tally uncounted votes in the disputed election that eventually led to victory in Florida. NORC's tabulation of 180,000 ballots that did not register votes during initial machine counts was complete before Labor Day and was slated for media release in mid-September. The data were held back at the behest of sponsors who felt they did not have the resources to analyze it properly with so many reporters busy covering the attacks. However, NORC quietly turned over its findings early this week. The Associated Press said Thursday that its first coverage will go out on the wire Sunday for newspaper use the following day. Follow-ups begin Monday for use Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the New York Times Co. (NYT: news, chart, profile) told CBS.MarketWatch.com late Thursday that the company's flagship paper will run with its own story Monday. Apart from the AP and the Times, companies contributing to the estimated $500,000 cost of the project were Dow Jones (DJ: news, chart, profile), Washington Post Co. (WPO: news, chart, profile), Tribune Co. (TRB: news, chart, profile), AOL Time Warner (AOL: news, chart, profile) and a couple of independent Florida newspapers. Under the terms of the unusual agreement, the results would be given to all consortium members at the same time, with an agreed period in which to independently analyze them before going public. Other news outlets have done their own recounts in Florida, with results showing everything from a larger margin for Administration to a slight edge for Democrat Al Gore, depending on how the votes were counted. Refer to Newsweek report (Sept. 17 edition) on the behind-the-scenes details of the election crisis. 1. Justice Souter claimed if he had 'one more day," it may have been President Gore. 2. Justice Breyer was livid over the vote "result". 3. Gore was organising a campaign in Florida and wanted Erin Brockovich to investigate Democratic vote claims. 4. The Administration itself called Supreme Court vote "bad news" and worried about backlash. 5. Sen. Danforth was MIA when Administration campaign called. The week of September 10 was to be a big week for Newsweek. The mag was to report on the behind-the-scenes details of the election crisis. (Sept. 17 edition) \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par Osman bin Laden had gone for a medical check in an American hospital in Dubai. It is there that he reportedly met with an Agency agent. Le Figaro (newspaper) cites a reliable source in the hospital administration, where the Saudi millionaire came to treat his kidney disorder. The newspaper also says that a day after bin Laden's departure, the American intelligent officer was urgently summoned to Washington. The above information presents in a completely new light the nature of the September terrorist attacks in the USA and, correspondingly, the present-day aggression by the USA and Great Britain against Afghanistan. More than this, it seems relevant here to return to the versions implying that those terrorist attacks were in the interests of secret services and the US military industrial complex, which PRAVDA has written about immediately after the attacks. Anyway, the Administration, which may have sanctioned the meeting of bin Laden with an agent, will have to explain its behaviour. Hindustan Times published: The American Hospital in Dubai categorically denied reports on Wednesday that the world's most wanted man, Osman bin Laden, underwent treatment there in July for a kidney complaint. "He was never a patient here for any days," chief executive office told AFP. "Osman bin Laden has never been here. He has never been a patient and he has never been treated here. This is too small a hospital for someone to be brought through the backdoor," he said. (Oct. 31, 2001)-- French newspaper claims a US intelligence agent met Osman bin Laden in a Gulf hospital two months before the terror attacks on New York. Le Figaro said the meeting took place between July 4 and 14, while bin Laden was being treated for a serious kidney ailment at the American Hospital in Dubai. During his stay at the hospital, bin Laden was visited by members of his family and the local representative of the agency said Le Figaro. The newspaper claims the Agency agent later boasted to several friends that he had visited the Saudi terror mastermind who at that time was wanted for the bombings of US embassies in Africa and the attack on the destroyer Cole in Yemen. In Dubai, he was reportedly treated by a specialist in kidney ailments and male infertility. He refused to comment. The American Hospital in Dubai denies that bin Laden had ever been a patient. Several sources had reported that bin Laden had a serious kidney infection. He had a mobile dialysis machine sent to his Kandahar hideout in Afghanistan in the first half of 2000, according to "authoritative sources" quoted by Le Figaro and French radio. The Age (Australia) published the following (crediting AFP): bin Laden underwent treatment in American hospital in Dubai Source: AFP Published: Wednesday October 31, 2:07 PM PARIS - Osman bin Laden underwent treatment in July at the American Hospital in Dubai where he met a Agency official, French daily Le Figaro and Radio France International reported today. Quoting "a witness, a professional partner of the administrative management of the hospital", the newspaper said the man suspected by the United States of being behind the September 11 terrorist attacks had arrived in Dubai on July 4 by air from Quetta, Pakistan. He was immediately taken to the hospital for kidney treatment. He left the establishment on July 14, Le Figaro said. bin Laden has been \ldblquote sought\rdblquote by the United States for terrorism since the bombing of the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Could there be any truth to the claim that some of the \ldblquote hijackers\rdblquote have been falsely accused; apparently their passport and credit card information had been stolen. This must be the case since some of the \ldblquote hijackers\rdblquote are still alive today. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par Agents in the United States probing relatives of Saudi-born terror suspect Osman bin Laden before September 11 were told to back off soon after GWB became president, the BBC has reported. The BBC's Newsnight current affairs programme on Tuesday said that Bush at one point had a number of connections with Saudi Arabia's prominent bin Laden family. It added there was a suspicion that the US strategic interest in Saudi Arabia, which has the world's biggest oil reserve, blunted its inquiries into individuals with suspected terrorist connections -- so long as the US was safe. Newsnight reported it had seen secret documents from a bureau probe into the September 11 terror attacks that showed that at least two other US-based members of the bin Laden family are suspected to have links with a possible terrorist organisation. The programme said it had obtained evidence that the bureau was on the trail of bin Laden family members living in United States before, as well as after, the terrorist attacks. Newsnight said Bush made his first million 20 years ago with an oil company partly funded by the chief US representative of Salem bin Laden, Osman's brother. Bush also received fees as director of a subsidiary of CARLYLE Corporation, a little-known private company which in just a few years since its founding has become one of America's biggest defence contractors, and his father, GHWB, is also a paid advisor, the programme said. The connection became embarrassing when it was revealed that the bin Ladens held a stake in CARLYLE, sold just after September 11, it added. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par University for Research on Globalisation (CRG), Montreal / September 2001 A few hours after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, the Bush administration concluded without supporting evidence, that "Ousmane bin Laden and his al-Qaeda organisation were prime suspects". Agency Director GTenet stated that bin Laden has the capacity to plan ``multiple attacks with little or no warning.'' Secretary of State CPowell called the attacks "an act of war" and President Bush confirmed in an evening televised address to the Nation that he would "make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them". Former Agency Director JWoolsey pointed his finger at "state sponsorship," implying the complicity of one or more foreign governments. In the words of former Security Adviser, L. Eagleburger, "I think we will show when we get attacked like this, we are terrible in our strength and in our retribution." Meanwhile, parroting official statements, the Western media mantra has approved the launching of "punitive actions" directed against civilian targets in the Middle East. In the words of WSaffire writing in the New York Times: "When we reasonably determine our attackers' bases and camps, we must pulverize them -- minimizing but accepting the risk of collateral damage" -- and act overtly or covertly to destabilize terror's national hosts". The following text outlines the history of Ousmane bin Laden and the links of the Islamic "Jihad" to the formulation of US foreign policy during the Cold War and its aftermath. Prime suspect in the New York and Washington terrorists attacks, branded by the bureau as an "international terrorist" for his role in the African US embassy bombings, Saudi born Ousmane bin Laden was recruited during the Soviet-Afghan war "ironically under the auspices of the Agency, to fight Soviet invaders". 1- In 1979 "the largest covert operation in the history of the Agency" was launched in response to the Soviet invasion of AFGHANISTAN in support of the pro-Communist government of Babrak Kamal. 2- With the active encouragement of the Agency and PAKISTAN's ISI [Inter Services Intelligence], who wanted to turn the Afghan jihad into a global war waged by all Muslim states against the Soviet Union, some 35,000 Muslim radicals from 40 Islamic countries joined AFGHANISTAN's fight between 1982 and 1992. Tens of thousands more came to study in PAKISTANi madrasahs. Eventually more than 100,000 foreign Muslim radicals were directly influenced by the Afghan jihad. 3- The Islamic "jihad" was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia with a significant part of the funding generated from the Golden Crescent drug trade: In March 1985, President Reagan signed Security Decision Directive 166,...[which] authorize[d] stepped-up covert military aid to the mujahideen, and it made clear that the secret Afghan war had a new goal: to defeat Soviet troops in AFGHANISTAN through covert action and encourage a Soviet withdrawal. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies -- a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987, ... as well as a "ceaseless stream" of Agency and Pentagon specialists who traveled to the secret headquarters of PAKISTAN's ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, PAKISTAN. There the Agency specialists met with PAKISTANi intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels. 4- The Central Intelligence Agency (Agency) using PAKISTAN's military Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) played a key role in training the Mujahideen. In turn, the Agency sponsored guerrilla training was integrated with the teachings of Islam: Predominant themes were that Islam was a complete socio-political ideology, that holy Islam was being violated by the atheistic Soviet troops, and that the Islamic people of AFGHANISTAN should reassert their independence by overthrowing the leftist Afghan regime propped up by Moscow. 5- PAKISTAN's Intelligence Apparatus- PAKISTAN's ISI was used as a "go-between". The Agency covert support to the "jihad" operated indirectly through the PAKISTANi ISI, --i.e. the Agency did not channel its support directly to the Mujahideen. In other words, for these covert operations to be "successful", Washington was careful not to reveal the ultimate objective of the "jihad", which consisted in destroying the Soviet Union. In the words of Agency's MBeardman "We didn't train Arabs". Yet according to Abdel Monam Saidali, of the Al-aram Center for Strategic Studies in Cairo, bin Laden and the "Afghan Arabs" had been imparted "with very sophisticated types of training that was allowed to them by the Agency" 6- Agency's Beardman confirmed, in this regard, that Ousmane bin Laden was not aware of the role he was playing on behalf of Washington. In the words of bin Laden (quoted by Beardman): "neither I, nor my brothers saw evidence of American help". 7- Motivated by nationalism and religious fervor, the Islamic warriors were unaware that they were fighting the Soviet Army on behalf of Uncle Sam. While there were contacts at the upper levels of the intelligence hierarchy, Islamic rebel leaders in theatre had no contacts with Washington or the Agency. With Agency backing and the funneling of massive amounts of US military aid, the PAKISTANi ISI had developed into a "parallel structure wielding enormous power over all aspects of government". 8- The ISI had a staff composed of military and intelligence officers, bureaucrats, undercover agents and informers, estimated at 150,000. 9- Meanwhile, Agency operations had also reinforced the PAKISTANi military regime led by General Zia Ul Haq: 'Relations between the Agency and the ISI [PAKISTAN's military intelligence] had grown increasingly warm following [General] Zia's ouster of Bhutto and the advent of the military regime,'... During most of the Afghan war, PAKISTAN was more aggressively anti-Soviet than even the United States. Soon after the Soviet military invaded AFGHANISTAN in 1980, Zia [ul Haq] sent his ISI chief to destabilize the Soviet Central Asian states. The Agency only agreed to this plan in October 1984.... `the Agency was more cautious than the PAKISTANis.' Both PAKISTAN and the United States took the line of deception on AFGHANISTAN with a public posture of negotiating a settlement while privately agreeing that military escalation was the best course. 10- The GOLDEN CRESCENT DRUG TRIANGLE: The history of the drug trade in Central Asia is intimately related to the Agency's covert operations. Prior to the Soviet-Afghan war, opium production in AFGHANISTAN and PAKISTAN was directed to small regional markets. There was no local production of HEROIN. 11 In this regard, AMcCoy's study confirms that within two years of the onslaught of the Agency operation in AFGHANISTAN, the PAKISTAN-AFGHANISTAN borderlands became the world's top HEROIN producer, supplying 60 percent of U.S. demand. In PAKISTAN, the HEROIN;-addict population went from near zero in 1979... to 1.2 million by 1985 -- a much steeper rise than in any other nation": 12-Agency assets again controlled this HEROIN trade. As the Mujahideen guerrillas seized territory inside AFGHANISTAN, they ordered peasants to plant opium as a revolutionary tax. Across the border in PAKISTAN, Afghan leaders and local syndicates under the protection of PAKISTAN Intelligence operated hundreds of HEROIN laboratories. During this decade of wide-open drug-dealing, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency in Islamabad failed to instigate major seizures or arrests ... U.S. officials had refused to investigate charges of HEROIN dealing by its Afghan allies `because U.S. narcotics policy in AFGHANISTAN has been subordinated to the war against Soviet influence there.' In 1995, the former Agency director of the Afghan operation, CCogan, admitted the Agency had indeed sacrificed the drug war to fight the Cold War. `Our main mission was to do as much damage as possible to the Soviets. We didn't really have the resources or the time to devote to an investigation of the drug trade,'... `I don't think that we need to apologize for this. Every situation has its fallout.... There was fallout in terms of D*R*U*G*S, yes. But the main objective was accomplished. The Soviets left AFGHANISTAN.' 13- In the Wake of the Cold War In the wake of the Cold War, the Central Asian region is not only strategic for its extensive oil reserves, it also produces three quarters of the World's opium representing multibillion dollar revenues to business syndicates, financial institutions, intelligence agencies and organized crime. The annual proceeds of the Golden Crescent drug trade (between 100 and 200 billion dollars) represents approximately one third of the Worldwide annual turnover of narcotics, estimated by the United Nations to be of the order of $500 billion. 14- With the disintegration of the Soviet Union, a new surge in opium production has unfolded. (According to UN estimates, the production of opium in AFGHANISTAN in 1998-99 -- coinciding with the build up of armed insurgencies in the former Soviet republics-- reached a record high of 4600 metric tons. 15- Powerful business syndicates in the former Soviet Union allied with organized crime are competing for the strategic control over the HEROIN routes. The ISI's extensive intelligence military-network was not dismantled in the wake of the Cold War. The Agency continued to support the Islamic "jihad" out of PAKISTAN. New undercover initiatives were set in motion in Central Asia, the Caucasus and the Balkans. PAKISTAN's military and intelligence apparatus essentially "served as a catalyst for the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of six new Muslim republics in Central Asia. 16- Meanwhile, Islamic missionaries of the Wahhabi sect from Saudi Arabia had established themselves in the Muslim republics as well as within the Russian federation encroaching upon the institutions of the secular State. Despite its anti-American ideology, Islamic fundamentalism was largely serving Washington's strategic interests in the former Soviet Union. Following the withdrawal of Soviet troops in 1989, the civil war in AFGHANISTAN continued unabated. The TALIBAN were being supported by the PAKISTANi Deobandis and their political party the Jamiat-ul-Ulema-e-Islam (JUI). In 1993, JUI entered the government coalition of Prime Minister Benazzir Bhutto. Ties between JUI, the Army and ISI were established. In 1995, with the downfall of the Hezb-I-Islami Hektmatyar government in Kabul, the TALIBAN not only instated a hardline Islamic government, they also "handed control of training camps in AFGHANISTAN over to JUI factions...\rdblquote 17- And the JUI with the support of the Saudi Wahhabi movements played a key role in recruiting volunteers to fight in the Balkans and the former Soviet Union. Jane defence Weekly confirms in this regard that "half of TALIBAN manpower and equipment originate[d] in PAKISTAN under the ISI 18- In fact, it would appear that following the Soviet withdrawal both sides in the Afghan civil war continued to receive covert support through PAKISTAN's ISI. 19- In other words, backed by PAKISTAN's military intelligence (ISI) which in turn was controlled by the Agency, the TALIBAN Islamic State was largely serving American geopolitical interests. The Golden Crescent drug trade was also being used to finance and equip the Bosnian Muslim Army (starting in the early 1990s) and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). In last few months there is evidence that Mujahideen mercenaries are fighting in the ranks of KLA-NLA terrorists in their assaults into Macedonia. No doubt, this explains why Washington has closed its eyes on the reign of terror imposed by the TALIBAN including the blatant derogation of women's rights, the closing down of schools for girls, the dismissal of women employees from government offices and the enforcement of "the Sharia laws of punishment". 20- The War in Chechnya With regard to Chechnya, the main rebel leaders Shamil Basayev and Al Khattab were trained and indoctrinated in Agency sponsored camps in AFGHANISTAN and PAKISTAN. According to YBodansky, director of the U.S. Congress's Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, the war in Chechnya had been planned during a secret summit of HizbAllah International held in 1996 in Mogadishu, Somalia. 21- The summit, was attended by Osman bin Laden and high-ranking Iranian and PAKISTANi intelligence officers. In this regard, the involvement of PAKISTAN's ISI in Chechnya "goes far beyond supplying the Chechens with weapons and expertise: the ISI and its radical Islamic proxies are actually calling the shots in this war". 22- Russia's main pipeline route transits through Chechnya and Dagestan. Despite Washington's perfunctory condemnation of Islamic terrorism, the indirect beneficiaries of the Chechen war are the Anglo-American oil conglomerates which are vying for control over oil resources and pipeline corridors out of the Caspian Sea basin. The two main Chechen rebel armies (respectively led by Commander Shamil Basayev and Emir Khattab) estimated at 35,000 strong were supported by PAKISTAN's ISI, which also played a key role in organizing and training the Chechen rebel army: [In 1994] the PAKISTANi Inter Services Intelligence arranged for Basayev and his trusted lieutenants to undergo intensive Islamic indoctrination and training in guerrilla warfare in the Khost province of AFGHANISTAN at Amir Muawia camp, set up in the early 1980s by the Agency and ISI and run by famous Afghani warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar. In July 1994, upon graduating from Amir Muawia, Basayev was transferred to Markaz-i-Dawar camp in PAKISTAN to undergo training in advanced guerrilla tactics. In PAKISTAN, Basayev met the highest ranking PAKISTANi military and intelligence officers: Minister of defence General Aftab Shahban Mirani, Minister of Interior General Naserullah Babar, and the head of the ISI branch in charge of supporting Islamic causes, General Javed Ashraf, (all now retired). High-level connections soon proved very useful to Basayev. 23- Following his training and indoctrination stint, Basayev was assigned to lead the assault against Russian federal troops in the first Chechen war in 1995. His organisation had also developed extensive links to criminal syndicates in Moscow as well as ties to Albanian organized crime and the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). In 1997-98, according to Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) "Chechen warlords started buying up real estate in Kosovo... through several real estate firms registered as a cover in Yugoslavia. 24- Basayev's organisation has also been involved in a number of rackets including narcotics, illegal tapping and sabotage of Russia's oil pipelines, kidnapping, prostitution, trade in counterfeit dollars and the smuggling of nuclear materials (See Mafia linked to Albania's collapsed pyramids, 25- Alongside the extensive laundering of drug money, the proceeds of various illicit activities have been funneled towards the recruitment of mercenaries and the purchase of weapons. During his training in AFGHANISTAN, Shamil Basayev linked up with Saudi born veteran Mujahideen Commander "Al Khattab" who had fought as a volunteer in AFGHANISTAN. Barely a few months after Basayev's return to Grozny, Khattab was invited (early 1995) to set up an army base in Chechnya for the training of Mujahideen fighters. According to the BBC, Khattab's posting to Chechnya had been "arranged through the Saudi-Arabian based [International] Islamic Relief Organisation, a militant religious organisation, funded by mosques and rich individuals which channeled funds into Chechnya. 26- Concluding Remarks Since the Cold War era, Washington has consciously supported Ousmane bin Laden, while at same time placing him on the FBI's "most wanted list" as the World's foremost terrorist. While the Mujahideen are busy fighting America's war in the Balkans and the former Soviet Union, the bureau --operating as a US based Police Force- is waging a domestic war against terrorism, operating in some respects independently of the Agency which has --since the Soviet-Afghan war-- supported international terrorism through its covert operations. In a cruel irony, while the Islamic jihad --featured by the Bush Adminstation as "a threat to America"-- is blamed for the terrorist assaults on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon, these same Islamic organisations constitute a key instrument of US military-intelligence operations in the Balkans and the former Soviet Union. In the wake of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, the truth must prevail to prevent the Bush Adminstration together with its NATO partners from embarking upon a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity.

\plain\f2\fs20 \par Many conservatives believe that the American voters' choice of George W. Bush as president marks a return to the founding values of our Republic, but it should be remembered that George W. Bush, like his father, George H. W. Bush, and his grandfather, Prescott Sheldon Bush, is a member of Skull and Bones. [6] It is the purpose of this article to show how Skull and Bones members (S&B) work in tandem with Rhodes Scholars (RS) and Fabian Socialists (FS) to form an important part of what is known as the power elite. 1833: That year the Skull and Bones fraternity was organized at Yale University as Chapter 322 of a German fraternity. 1883: What part has Skull & Bones played in our elections? Professor Carroll Quigley was President Clinton's mentor, and in Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World In our Time, the professor revealed that William C. Whitney (S&B) and others, in the late 19th century, developed a plan to control both major political parties through financial contributions, and have the parties alternate power so the public would think it had a choice. "Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or promulgated [emphasis mine], that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991 "We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." David Rockefeller Baden-Baden, Germany 1991 "The CFR [Council On Foreign Relations, New York City] is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national directives should be obliterated and one-world rule established.

\plain\f2\fs20 \par The week of September 10th (September 17th edition) was to be a big week for Newsweek. The mag was to report on the behind-the-scenes details of the election crisis. The topics would include Justice Souter wanting 'one more day," since it may have been President Gore. Also, Justice Breyer was livid over the vote in favor of Bush. Meanwhile, Gore was organizing sleaze campaign in Florida and wanted Erin Brockovich to investigate Democratic vote claims. This would easily give Democrats and big media full ammunition to discredit his presidency. What would happen on September 11th would horrify and chage the world; in a reversal of roles, government intelligence specialists have been secretly soliciting terrorist scenarios from top Hollywood filmmakers and writers. An ad hoc working group convened at the University of Southern California just last week at the behest of the U.S. Army. The goal was to brainstorm about possible terrorist targets and schemes in America and to offer solutions to those threats, in light of the aerial assaults on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. Amoung those in the working group based at USC's Institute for Creative Technologie (ICT) are those with obvious connections to the terrorist pic milieu, like \ldblquote Die Hard'' screenwriter Steven E. De Souza, TV writer David Engelbach (\ldblquote MacGyver\rdblquote ) and helmer Joseph Zito, who directed the features ``Delta Force One,'' ``Missing in Action'' and ``The Abduction.'' But the list also includes more mainstream suspense helmers like David Fincher (\ldblquote Fight Club''), Spike Jonze (\ldblquote Being John Malkovich''), Randal Kleiser (\rdblquote Grease'') and Mary Lambert (\ldblquote The In Crowd'') as well as feature screenwriters Paul De Meo and Danny Bilson (\ldblquote The Rocketeer''). In August 1999, the Army awarded USC a five-year contract to create the Institute for Creative Technologies with a mandate to enlist the resources and talents of the entertainment industry, videogame-makers and computer scientists to advance the state of ``immersive,'' or virtual reality, training simulation for soldiers. These concepts go hand-in-hand with the MKUltra technologies. The entertainment industry brings a certain expertise in story and character, as well as visual effects and production know-how to the table. But one USC insider describes the ad hoc group as focused ``on the short-term threats against the country'' and said that Army Briggadier General had been heading the effort, which has met twice already via teleconference with the Pentagon. ICT creative director James Korris confirmed that the filmmaker meetings were ongoing with the Army but declined to elaborate as to what specific recommendations had been made to the Pentagon. A call to the Army's office of public affairs seeking comment from Gen. Bergquist was not returned. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par Using truth serum an option in probes (MKUltra technologie) Some researchers are considering the use of truth serum to sweat information out of suspected al Qaeda terrorists likely would find federal courts on their side because public safety is at imminent risk. Top Stories In Germany Schmidt had lived with Dr. Wilhelm Kuetemeyer, a professor of psychosomatic medicine at the University of Heidelberg. Kuetemeyer conducted experiments on schizophrenics. His work was interrupted when he became involved in the July 20 plot to kill Adolph Hitler. See Edward J. Epstein, Legend: The Secret World of Lee Harvey Oswald (New York: McGraw-Hill, 1978), pp. 203-05. Schmidt shared a room in the house with the Magnolia employees who gave the party at Schmidt's request where Oswald met Michael Paine. Schmidt was also studying Russian at Magnolia with Mamantov, who worked as a geologist for Sun Oil Co. Mamantov was acquainted also with George Bush, who wrote to Mamantov's wife after his death stating, "We did it!" Some say this laid the groundwork for the MKUltra technologie. This is the technologie used to intermix pschotropic drugs, hypnotic suggestion, psychedellics and warfare. The resulting technologie can brainwash a soldier into doing just about anything i.e. driving a plane into a building. In cases involving the whereabouts of bombs or weapons, or in the hunt for kidnap victims, courts have been flexible, even to the point of admitting evidence that was obtained by officers who failed to give the "Miranda warning," which says suspects have a right to remain silent and obtain a lawyer. One guiding light for that philosophy is the quotation cited in several Supreme Court national-security opinions from a 1963 opinion for the court by Justice Arthur Goldberg: "While the Constitution protects against invasions of individual rights, it is not a suicide pact." Bureau officials yesterday said that, despite the frustration investigators face in tough cases, the bureau had no plans to use truth serum or other coercive interrogation techniques on people detained in the investigation of the September 11 attacks, as press reports here and abroad claimed were under consideration to break down stubborn suspects. "As the nation's lead agency for counterterrorism and the enforcement of civil rights law, the bureau works both to prevent and investigate acts of terrorism and to protect individual rights," the bureau said in a statement that mentioned four recent convictions in the embassy bombing cases as proof that the constitutional system works against terrorism. "While large and difficult investigations often bring moments of frustration for investigators, none would advocate what is being suggested," the bureau statement said. The agency finessed the question by saying federal law bars its involvement in domestic operations. Truth serums were used on World War II spy suspects by agents of the Office of Strategic Services, Chief Justice Earl Warren endorsed them during the Kennedy assassination probe he headed, and a House committee proposed to test a Hanoi mortician who testified in 1979 that he prepared 400 bodies of U.S. prisoners of war for storage. The key legal question would be whether the information a witness was hiding was deemed more important than using his confession to prosecute him later. Except for rare cases involving imminent risk to "public safety," federal courts always bar a defendant's involuntary statements under the Fifth Amendment's protection against forced self-incrimination. Should such cases come to light, prosecutors would have discretion on whether to charge an investigator criminally with assault or civil rights violations, and the person under investigation could try to take his chances in civil court by suing the interrogator. Analysts in and out of government say some answers in the al Qaeda investigation are worth trying chemical truth serums even if prosecution will fail because of the tactic. "It's just an injection, a doctor gives it. That one doesn't seem so hard," said a federal official who requested anonymity. "We already allow the threat of imprisonment to force people to speak to a grand jury. Once certain legal processes have been gone through we place no value on your right not to speak," he said. Testimony coerced by fines or indefinite jail terms is common in grand jury probes such as the one under way over the terrorist attacks. That practice puts aside Fifth Amendment self-incrimination rights so that reluctant witnesses can be forced to testify against others. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz proposes reviving the historic English system in which top officials and the high court authorized what he calls warrants for torture. "I'm not in favor of torture, but if you're going to have it, it should damn well have court approval," said Mr. Dershowitz. Although the agency experimented with truth serums, as did its World War II predecessor, the OSS, the agency has no public position on the issue now. "The same people who beat you up for perhaps being in contact with unsavory people, or for being too close to people who had techniques to get information, now want to know why you don't have greater sources in terrorist organizations," said one agency official. The truth serum issue arose during the Warren Commission probe of Lee Harvey Oswald's murder after President Kennedy's 1963 assassination, when Jack Ruby volunteered for a truth-serum test to prove that he had no co-conspirators. "Now Mr. Warren, I don't know if you got any confidence in the lie detector test and the truth serum, and so on?" Ruby said. "I can't tell you just now much confidence I have in it, because it depends so much on who is taking it, and so forth. But I will say this to you, that if you and your counsel want any kind of test, I will arrange it for you. I would be glad to do that, if you want it," Chief Justice Warren replied. "I do want it. Will you agree to that, Joe?" Ruby asked his lawyer, Joe H. Tonahill. "I sure do, Jack," Mr. Tonahill said. In 1996, defence Secretary William J. Perry officially banished training manuals used for Latin American intelligence trainees from 1982 to 1991 at the U.S. Army School of the Americas. Practices in the manuals included extrajudicial execution and use of truth serums. An al Qaeda training manual in evidence at the embassy bombing trials mentions chemical invasion in its chapter on interrogation, but it warns "Jihad brothers" that torture is more likely in the jails of Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. "Placing drugs and narcotics in the brother's food to weaken his will power" is item 23 amoung 26 torture methods listed, followed by nine "methods of psychological torture." In an article chronicling truth serum from the 1940s to the 1990s, California Institute of Technologie student Alison Winter pointed out the historic use of alcohol to loosen tongues, documented by Pliny the Elder's A.D. 77 aphorism, "In vino veritas." More sophisticated truth serums have included scopolamine and the barbiturates sodium pentothal and sodium amytal. There also was experimentation with LSD, psilocybin and amanita mascara mushrooms. Although the fictional image portrays a single hypodermic injection, Miss Pae said it was more common to have a doctor administer truth serums intravenously over sessions lasting two to 11 hours. "The depth of anesthesia is controlled by the anesthesiologist in response to requests from the principal interrogator, who may call for rapid fluctuations in depth of anesthesia in order to further the purposes of the interrogation," she said. A psychiatrist in a landmark rape-sodomy case testified that such drugs "remove certain inhibitions so the individual will spontaneously say what the individual would have said without trying to exercise control over not saying it." Other expert witnesses call such testimony unreliable because persons submitted to chemicals often repeat interrogators words or fantasize. Since we are discussing drugs, truth serums and hypnotic suggestion we should again mention the latest new tool in the military - the MKUltra technologies. One can easily see the bad effects in the movie "Jacobs Ladder". There is some talk about remote controlled planes. The technologie has been around since the early seventies. In the spook community, there is rumor of flying a remote controlled 747 into Cuba. This in turn would lead to some foreign conflict or war. The advantage of such a technologie would be no loss of life to a agency agent or to a military soldier. Only through MKUltra technologie, could a soldier be forced to sacrifice his life for a mission. MKUltra experimentation involved the use of D*R*U*G*S such as LSD and BZ.

President-Well, he is a free citizen to do anything he wants once he leaves the White House. My concern is about the White House itself, which it is beyond any perception of impropriety. Q-Well, what do you think he was selling to the Saudis except for accessing--- The President--Ask him. I don't know anything what he's selling. I don't know anything about this man, except I've read bad stuff about him. And I don't like what I read about him. But I would suggest that the matter be best dealt with by asking this man what kind of representation he is doing for this Shekh. But it has nothing to do, in my view, with the White House." from the Official Papers of the Presidents, Press Conference, October 25, 1991 The Senate Committee on BCCI noted that ERogers, the White House political director, was hired directly away by the BCCI Sheikh and paid, along with a hitherto unknown assistant named HBarbour (later to become National Republican Committee Chairman), the sum of $600,000 to not do much of nothing. The Senate Committee concluded that it, along with the "gifts" of cash to GWB, was intended to influence President Bush. After GWB's company, ARBRUSTO, went bust, the bin Laden connection with BCCI went to work once again to prop up the president's son and to buy influence. W swapped out shares until he had an interest in a new company, HARKEN Energy, which quickly received a lucrative oil concession in Bahrain. An "extraordinary number of people connected to HARKEN or the oil deal have ties to BCCI...Sheikh Khalifa bin-Salman al-Khalifa helped to ensure that HARKEN was awarded the offshore drilling contract...Sheikh Abdullah Taha Baksh..Ghairth Pharaon...bin Mahfouz...Talat Othman who has visited the White House..." from False Profits, page 370. "Knowledgeable oil company sources believe that the Bahrain oil concession was indeed an oblique favor to the president of the United States but say that Saudi Arabia (home of bin Laden) was behind the Decision". From Outlaw Bank, page 230. "After the Harken-Bahrain deal was signed, Talat Othman was added to a group of Arabs who met with Bush and Security Adviser BScowcroft three times in 1990 -- once just two days after Iraq invaded Kuwait. Othman was the representative of Sheikh Abdullah Bakhsh, who purchased 10% of \'85\'85\'85\'85\'85. OBL CONNECTION : J. Bath, friend and neighbor of W. Bush, was used as a cash funnel from Osman bin Laden's rich father, Sheikh bin Laden, to set W. Bush up in business, according to reputable sources from the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. The connection between GWB, the bin Laden family, and the Bank Commerce Credit International (BCCI) is well documented. One can find them in books and archived news articles. bin Laden-backed BCCI money was funneled into the Bush family in return for favors. "Bath--who made his fortune by investing money for Mahfouz and another BCCI-connected Saudi, Sheikh bin-Laden--...was an original investor in Jr's oil exploration company..." from The Outlaw Bank, page 229. "Bath provided financing to W when he went into the oil business..." from False Profits, page 365. "Bath told me he was in the Agency...he had been recruited by Bush himself 1n 1976 when Bush was director of the agency...Bath and, Jr. were pals and flew together in the same Air National Guard unit, and Bath lived down the street from the Bush family when, Sr. was living in Houston...he became representative for Sheikh Khalid bin-Mafouz...one of the richest men in the world, and he was a controlling shareholder in..BCCI..." from The Outlaw Bank, page 228. "BCCI was charged with laundering drug money..." from False Profits, page 433. "During Bush's tenure as Agency director, the agency was allegedly involved in a very curious business deal with Bath, a Texas businessman who is a friend and sometime financial backer of one of Bush's sons. Bath was also a business associate of Khalid bin Mafouze and an important BCCI insider. BIN LADEN MONEY SENT TO GWB THROUGH J. Bath "...BCCI would make payments to key officials, sometimes in suitcases filled with cash.

Pakistani President Zia's brother in law needed a job- he got a job. Bangladeshi president Ashraf's mistress needed a job- she got a job. Admission of your son to a top college, he would arrange it somehow. There was a world wide list of people who were in the payoff of BCCI...". from United States Senate Subcommittee Report on Bank Credit Commerce International, 1992 Osman bin Laden, whose funds were inherited from his father, Sheikh bin Laden's BCCI investments, has been operating out of Afghanistan since he was established as a conduit for Agency funds in the 1980's. "Afghanistan was by far the biggest; it was, in fact, the biggest Agency operation of all time, both in terms of dollars spent ($5-$6 billion) and personnel involved..."from the book The CIA's Greatest Hits. The story of the Bush involvement in the BCCI scandal involved "trails that branched, crossed one another, or came to unexpected dead ends...". It was like a "three dimensional chess game." from The Outlaw Bank, page 227. The BCCI bribery connection went straight to the Bush oval office. The White House political director, a man whom the Senate noted sat in on presidential meetings, named ERogers, was hired away from the Chief of Staff's Offirken stock and had several ties to the infamous BCCI bank. Bakhsh was a co-investor in Saudi Arabia with alleged BCCI front man Ghaith Pharaon. Bakhsh's banker, Khalid bin Mahfouz, was another BCCI figure and head of the largest bank in Saudi Arabia. Sheikh Kalifah, the prime minister of Bahrain, was a BCCI shareholder and played the key role in selecting Harken for the oil contract." "B. Scowcroft, the national security advisor to President Bush, said that the younger Bush clearly lacks international credentials as reported to the Boston Globe April 5th.

The resemblance is more than just facial. Like Bhindranwale, bin Laden was created by the very forces which are now seeking to destroy him. Experts are almost unanimous in saying that bin Laden is a creature of a US foreign policy which recklessly fed and nurtured him and his Islamic warriors with million of dollars worth of money and arms to fight the Soviet occupation in Afghanistan. The money was funnelled largely through PAKISTAN's maverick Inter-Services Intelligence. Even at that time, bin Laden and his holy warriors had made it clear that the US was as much anathema to them as the communists. The Agency is now trying to destroy the same camps it helped set up, Fisk, a British writer who covered the region and who met bin Laden at his camp recently said on Friday in an interview on National Public Radio. He said bin Laden did not appear to be such a fearsome international terrorist that the US was making him out to be. On the contrary, he was isolated, lonely, virtually unlistened to, and was constantly trying to know what was happening in other parts of the world. US officials have made bin Laden out to be a terrorist mastermind operating out of a high-tech cave filled with satellite phones and other gizmos overseeing a worldwide network of extremist organisations. The operation was a complete disaster. Mr. Bhutto promoted General Zia-Ul-Haq in part because the Director of ISI, General Gulam Jilani Khan, was actively promoting him. General Zia, in return, retained General Jilani as head of ISI after his scheduled retirement. Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto established the Federal Security Force and gave it wide-ranging powers to counter the influence of ISI, but the force was abolished when the military regime of Zia ul-Haq seized power in 1977. When the regime was unpopular with the military and the president (as was Benazir Bhutto's first government), the agency helped topple it by working with opposition political parties. The ISI became much more effective under the leadership of Hameed Gul. The 1990 elections are widely believed to be rigged. The Islami Jamhoori Ittehad [IJI] party was a conglomerate formed of nine mainly rightist parties by the ISI under Lt General Hameed Gul to ensure the defeat of Bhutto's PAKISTAN People's Party (PPP) in the polls. Gul denies this, claiming that the ISI's political cell created by Z.A. Bhutto only 'monitored' the elections. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan made PAKISTAN a country of paramount geostrategic importance. In a matter of days, the United States declared PAKISTAN a "frontline state" against Soviet aggression and offered to reopen aid and military assistance deliveries. For the remainder of Zia's tenure, the United States generally ignored PAKISTAN's developing nuclear programme. PAKISTAN's top national security agency, the Army's Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence, monitored the activities of and provided advice and support to the mujahidin, and commandos from the Army's Special Services Group helped guide the operations inside Afghanistan. The ISI trained about 83,000 Afghan Mujahideen between 1983 to 1997 and dispatched them to Afghanistan. PAKISTAN paid a price for its activities. Afghan and Soviet forces conducted raids against mujahidin bases inside PAKISTAN, and a campaign of terror bombings and sabotage in PAKISTAN's cities, guided by Afghan intelligence agents, caused hundreds of casualties. In 1987 some 90 percent of the 777 terrorist incidents recorded worldwide took place in PAKISTAN. The ISI continues to actively participate in Afghan Civil War, supporting the Talibaan in their fight against the Rabbani government. ISI is currently engaged in covertly supporting the Kashmiri Mujahideen in their fight against the Indian authorities in Kashmir. Reportedly "Operation Tupac" is the designation of the three part action plan for the liberation of Kashmir, initiated by President Zia Ul Haq in 1988 after the failure of "Operation Gibraltar." The designation is derived from Tupac Amru, the 18th century prince who led the war of liberation in Uruguay against the Spanish rule. According to a report compiled by the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) of India in 1995, ISI spent about Rs 2.4 crore per month to sponsor its activities in Jammu and Kashmir. Although all groups reportedly receive arms and training from PAKISTAN, the pro-PAKISTANi groups are reputed to be favored by the Directorate of Inter-Services Intelligence. As of May 1996, at least six major militant organizations, and several smaller ones, operate in Kashmir. Their forces are variously estimated at between 5,000 and 10,000 armed men. They are roughly divided between those who support independence and those who support accession to PAKISTAN. The oldest and most widely known militant organisation, the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), has spearheaded the movement for an independent Kashmir. Its student wing is the Jammu and Kashmir Students Liberation Front (JKSLF). A large number of other militant organizations have emerged since 1989, some of which also support independence, others of which support Kashmir's accession to PAKISTAN. The most powerful of the pro-PAKISTANi groups is the Hezb-ul-Mujahedin. The other major groups are Harakat-ul Ansar, a group which reportedly has a large number of non-Kashmiris in it, Al Umar, Al Barq, Muslim Janbaz Force and Lashkar-e Toiba, which is also made up largely of fighters from Afghanistan and PAKISTAN. According to press reports, several hundred fighters from Afghanistan and other Muslim countries have also joined some of the militant groups or have formed their own. The Harakat ul-Ansar group, a powerful militant organisation which first emerged in 1993, is said to be made up largely of non-Kashmiris. ISI is reported to operate training camps near the border of Bangladesh where members of separatist groups of the northeastern states, known as the "United Liberation Front Of Seven Sisters" [ULFOSS] are trained with military equipment and terrorist activities. These groups include the National Security Council of Nagaland [NSCN], People's Liberation Army [PLA], United Liberation Front of Assam [ULFA], and North East Students Organisation [NESO]. ISI is said to have intensified its activities in the southern Indian States of Hyderabad, Bangalore, Cochin, Kojhikode, Bhatkal, and Gulbarga. In Andhra Pradesh the Ittehadul Musalmeen and the Hijbul Mujahideen are claimed to be involved in subversive activities promoted by ISI. And Koyalapattinam, a village in Tamil Nadu, is said to be the common center of operations of ISI and the Liberation Tigers.

GENERAL ALMOST SENT PAKISTAN INTO NUCLEAR WAR WHILE PRIME MINISTER SHARIF WAS DEALING WITH THE USA--GENERAL GOES TO CHINA FOR INSTRUCTIONS THE SAME DAY November 29 1999 SOUTH ASIA Kashmir 'nearly led to nuclear clash' BY MEVANS, DEFENCE EDITOR PAKISTAN and India came "very close" to a nuclear exchange over Kashmir in the summer when border clashes erupted after Islamic militants infiltrated the Indian-controlled section of the mountain province, Peter Hain, the Foreign Office Minister, revealed yesterday. Kashmir, which had been the cause of two past conventional wars between India and PAKISTAN, remained a "frightening flashpoint", Mr Hain said. "We know the two countries came very close to a nuclear exchange over it," he said in an interview with The Times. The minister was not prepared to give any more details. However, there is likely to have been satellite photographic evidence that one side or both sides were preparing weapon systems known to be nuclear-capable. Both countries were proven nuclear powers after successful atomic tests in 1998, and by the time of the new clash over Kashmir, India and PAKISTAN had each developed a small number of nuclear warheads. While Britain, the US and other countries urged a rapid end to the confrontation for fear that it might turn nuclear, India and PAKISTAN launched ferocious border artillery strikes. India also launched airstrikes. The near-nuclear exchange has remained a key issue for the Foreign Office in its deliberations over how to deal with the military regime in PAKISTAN because of evidence that General Pervaiz Musharraf, who seized power in October, was personally involved in the decision to send Islamic "mercenaries" to occupy the Kargil district of Kashmir in May last year. General Musharraf is known to have been angry with Nawaz Sharif, the then PAKISTANi Prime Minister, after he ordered the withdrawal of the inflitrators from Kashmir. Despite the continuing caution in London over General Musharraf's motives for seizing power, there are now new efforts under way to help the military regime to adopt constitutional systems that will eventually lead to free elections US TESTIFIED N CONGRESS THAT PAKISTAN BEHIND TERRORISM US says PAKISTAN training militants By Shaheen Sehbai WASHINGTON, Nov 3: A senior US official responsible for counter-terrorism on Tuesday directly accused PAKISTAN of supporting training of militant groups in Afghanistan as well as providing "material support" to some of the Kashmiri militants. "There are numerous Kashmiri separatist groups and sectarian groups involved in terrorism which use PAKISTAN as a base...We have repeatedly asked Islamabad to end support of terrorist training in Afghanistan," Michael Sheehan, State Department's coordinator for counter-terrorism, told a Senate Foreign Relations sub-committee. The sub-committee hearing was called and presided over by Senator Sam Brownback and the list of experts who testified included a former Agency officer in PAKISTAN Bearden, president of Stimson Centre Krepon, John Hopkins University Central Asia Institute chairman Starr and a PAKISTANi- American businessman and columnist Ijaz. Mr Sheehan recently visited India to coordinate US-Indian responses to terrorist threats but when asked whether he would also visit PAKISTAN soon, he said: "Hopefully." "PAKISTAN has frequently acknowledged what it calls moral and diplomatic support for militants in Kashmir who employ violence and terrorism against Indian interests. We have continuing reports of PAKISTANi material support for some of these militants," Mr Sheehan said. He named several PAKISTAN-based militant Islamic groups including Lashkar Taiba, Harkatul Jehad Islami and Hizbul Mujahideen, which, he said, "operate freely in PAKISTAN and support terrorist attacks in Kashmir." Asked by Indian and PAKISTANi journalists after his hearing whether he found any change in the policy after the overthrow of the Nawaz government, Mr Sheehan said: "We are still waiting for their responses and it is too early to judge whether there is any change." When a correspondent pointed out whether it was "business as usual" with the military government, he crisply said "no" but added: "We hope to work with them on all these issues." \par \plain\f3\fs20

SINCE HIS ASSUMING CONTROL OF PAKISTAN, MUSHARRAF HAS STATED THAT PAKISTAN WILL NOT NOW SIGN THE CTBT, AND HE HAS BROKEN OFF ALL NEGOTIATIONS WITH INDIA. MEANWHILE, HE HAS MET, ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY, WITH AFGHANISTAN AND ITS FEW ALLIES IN THE WORLD. DESPITE HIS HEAVY SCHEDULE OF MEETINGS WITH THE ALLIES OF TERRORIST AFGHANISTAN, MUSHARRAF HAS NOT SPENT A SINGLE DAY IN THE OFFICE OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, DOING THE REGULAR DAY-TO-DAY BUSINESS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN. ISLAMABAD, Jan 4: Chief Executive General Pervez Musharraf has said that PAKISTAN will not hesitate to use nuclear weapons if its security is threatened. To put it simply, Musharraf, who was developed by the agency similary to the way it groomed the monster we now know as Osman bin Laden (aka Tim Osman). \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par World Headlines Wednesday November 07 11:52 AM EST Interview With Russia's President Putin By ABCNEWS.com Russian President Vladimir Putin's first reaction to the World Trade Center attacks was not what you might expect. In his first interview with a U.S. journalist since Sept. 11, Putin talks to 20/20 's Barbara Walters about terrorism and his schoolboy dreams of joining the KGB. As he watched the twin towers of the World Trade Center burn and then collapse on Sept. 11, Russian President Vladimir Putin says, his first feelings were of anger - and guilt. "It might seem a little bit strange, but I had a feeling of guilt for this tragedy," said Putin, who, like millions of other people around the world, watched the disaster unfold live on television. His guilt, he says, came from regret that the Russian and U.S. security services had not worked more closely together to combat terrorism before terrorists hijacked and crashed four airliners Sept. 11. "I don't know whether it would have been possible to prevent these strikes on the United States by the terrorists," he told 20/20 's Barbara Walters, "but it was a pity that our special services didn't get information on time and warn the American people and the American political leadership about the tragedy that came to pass." Putin did not say that Russian intelligence officers had any specific information about the attacks, but said he wished they had been working more closely with their American counterparts. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par Bureau agents in the United States probing relatives of Saudi-born terror suspect Osman bin Laden before September 11 were told to back off soon after GWB became president, the BBC has reported. The BBC's Newsnight current affairs programmeme on Tuesday said that Bush at one point had a number of connections with Saudi Arabia's prominent bin Laden family. It added there was a suspicion that the US strategic interest in Saudi Arabia, which has the world's biggest oil reserve, blunted its inquiries into individuals with suspected terrorist connections -- so long as the US was safe. Newsnight reported it had seen secret documents from a bureau probe into the September 11 terror attacks that showed that at least two other US-based members of the bin Laden family are suspected to have links with a possible terrorist organisation. The programmeme said it had obtained evidence that the bureau was on the trail of bin Laden family members living in United States before, as well as after, the terrorist attacks. Newsnight said Bush made his first million 20 years ago with an oil company partly funded by the chief US representative of Salem bin Laden, Osman's brother. Bush also received fees as director of a subsidiary of CARLYLE Corporation, a little-known private company which in just a few years since its founding has become one of America's biggest defence contractors, and his father, George Bush Sr, is also a paid advisor, the programmeme said. The connection became embarrassing when it was revealed that the bin Ladens held a stake in CARLYLE, sold just after September 11, it added. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\par \plain\f2\fs20 During George Bush's years at Andover, his headmaster, Fuess, wrote an authorized biography of Calvin Coolidge, the late U.S. President. This work was celebrated in jest as a champion specimen of unwholesome flattery. In other books, also about the bluebloods, Fuess was simply given the family papers and designated the chief liar for the "Bostonian Race." Both the Cushing and Coolidge families had made their fortunes in opium trafficking. Bush's headmaster named his son John Cushing Fuess, perhaps after the fabled nineteenth century dope kingpin who had made the Cushings rich. Headmaster Fuess used to say to his staff, "I came to power with Hitler and Mussolini."/ Note #1 / Note #6 This was not merely a pleasantry, referring to his appointment the year Hitler took over Germany. In his 1939 memoirs, Headmaster Fuess expressed the philosophy which must guide the education of the well-born young gentlemen under his care: "Our declining birth rate ... may perhaps indicate a step towards national deterioration. Amoung the so-called upper and leisure classes, noticeably amoung the university group, the present birth rate is strikingly low. Amoung the Slavonic and Latin immigrants, on the other hand, it is relatively high. We seem thus to be letting the best blood thin out and disappear; while at the same time our humanitarian efforts for the preservation of the less fit, those who for some reason are crippled and incapacitated, are being greatly stimulated. The effect on the race will not become apparent for some generations and certainly cannot now be accurately predicted; but the phenomenon must be mentioned if you are to have a true picture of what is going on in the United States." \par \plain\f3\fs20

Government > Search > Executive Orders Search > #2001-261 EXECUTIVE ORDER NUMBER 01-261 WHEREAS, the Florida National Guard has the statutory responsibility to provide support to law-enforcement personnel and emergency-management personnel in the event of civil disturbances or natural disasters; and WHEREAS, the Florida National Guard has the responsibility to provide training support to law-enforcement personnel and community-based organizations relating to counter drug operations; and WHEREAS, the Florida National Guard must train to meet such responsibilities; and WHEREAS, the Florida National Guard is funded for any such training by budgetary appropriation or grants before any such training; and WHEREAS, the Florida National Guard must conduct such training in active service of the state, as defined by Section 250.27, Florida Statutes (also known as active military service and state active duty) for members of the Florida National Guard to be covered by Section 250.34, Florida Statutes; and WHEREAS, as Governor, I may delegate the authority contained in Section 250.06(4), Florida Statutes, to order training to help respond to civil disturbances, natural disasters, and counter drug operations to The Adjutant General of the State of Florida; and WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of the State of Florida that I delegate such authority, so that the Florida National Guard is adequately trained to meet its obligation to help respond to civil disturbances, natural disasters, and counter drug operations and so that members of the Florida National Guard performing such training are covered by Section 250.34, Florida Statutes; and WHEREAS, the Governor may order the Florida National Guard to provide extraordinary support to law enforcement upon request and such a request has been received from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to assist FDLE in performing port security training and inspections. NOW, THEREFORE, I, JEB Bush, as Governor of Florida, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article IV, Section 1(a) of the Florida Constitution, and by Section 250.06(4), Florida Statutes, and all other applicable laws, do hereby promulgate the following Executive Order, to take immediate effect: Section 1. Based upon the foregoing, I hereby find that the public welfare requires that the Florida National Guard train to support law-enforcement personnel and emergency-management personnel in the event of civil disturbances or natural disasters and to provide training support to law-enforcement personnel and community-based organizations relating to counter drug operations. Section 2. I hereby delegate to The Adjutant General of the State of Florida all necessary authority, within approved budgetary appropriations or grants, to order members of the Florida National Guard into active service, as defined by Section 250.27, Florida Statutes, for the purpose of training to support law-enforcement personnel and emergency-management personnel in the event of civil disturbances or natural disasters and to provide training support to law-enforcement personnel and community-based organizations relating to counter drug operations. Section 3. The Florida National Guard may order selected members on to state active duty for service to the State of Florida pursuant to Section 250.06(4), Florida Statutes, to assist FDLE in performing port security training and inspections. Based on the potential massive damage to life and property that may result from an act of terrorism at a Florida port, the necessity to protect life and property from such acts of terrorism, and inhibiting the smuggling of illegal DRUGS into the State of Florida, the use of the Florida National Guard to support FDLE in accomplishing port security training and inspections is "extraordinary support to law enforcement" as used in Section 250.06(4), Florida Statutes. Section 4. The Adjutant General shall not place members of the Florida National Guard into active service for longer than necessary to accomplish the purposes declared herein. Section 5. This Executive Order supersedes Executive Order Number 01-17. Executive Order Number 01-17 is hereby revoked. Section 6. This Executive Order shall remain in full force and effect until the earlier of its revocation or June 30, 2003. IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and have caused the Great Seal of the State of Florida to be affixed at Tallahassee, the Capitol, this 7th day of September 2001. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par We know it is difficult to understand that there are people who love this country and love the constitution but are opposed to the U.S. government bombing in Afghanistan. Why? Consider the following: 1. The U.S. planned to invade Afghanistan in October of this year even prior to the WTC tragedy. 2. Osman bin Laden has worked directly with the agency for 15 to 20 years. He was trained by the agency to fight the Afghani-Soviet war. He was paid by the agency to destabilize the economy of the USSR - later resulting in the collapse of their economy. He was paid to provide weapons and men to train KLA soldiers in the Balkans. 3. The U.S. has had long-standing plans to install a gas pipeline and an oil pipeline through Afghanistan. The Clinton administration was unable to get it done, despite installing the (agency planned) Taliban government which was supposed to be fully cooperative in the plan. 4. The tunnels and caves used by bin Laden was partly constructed and modified by the agency using taxpayers dollars. If you care to research these matters, you will find that everything I have said here is true. Osman bin Laden (actually agent Tim Ossman) is the best terrorist that the U.S. government could CREATE and buy. He is worth his weight in gold to the U.S. government because he is enabling legislation to be passed such as the USA "Patriot" Bill which eliminates the Fourth Amendment - PERMITTING HOMES TO BE SEARCHED AND ITEMS TO BE SEIZED WITHOUT A WARRANT, in any case not necessarily relating to terrorism. Our government is using the terrorism card to take away your freedom, forever. Don't be so quick to fight for the bankers and the oil companies - because THAT'S WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT. Yes, terrorists killed 5000+ people on 9/11, but who allowed those terrorists into the country and provided them free latitude to do whatever they wanted, despite the efforts of some bureau agents who tried to stop them but were not permitted to do so. It hard to believe that your government is so corrupt and evil, but it is - and it doesn't take much research to reveal it. Wanting to replace the corrupt people in high government offices doesn't mean we are anti-American, rather it means WE CARE A GREAT DEAL ABOUT AMERICA and want to preserve this republic, its sovereignty and its liberties for another generation of Americans. THAT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN IF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GIVE UP THEIR LIBERTIES FOR A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY. If they have their way, you will see the rise of a global government and the loss of our republican form of government. The children of those who died on 9/11 deserve better than that from us. We owe them something - and that is to seek the truth and to deal with it.b The elected politicians who sit in DC today are only temporary representatives of our government. Eventually they leave office or die of old age. What makes our government great is the constitution, the balance of powers, equal justice under the law, the rights of individuals to determine their own destiny. It's our system of government that we love, respect and defend - not the people who are temporarily representatives of it and decision-makers within it. Right now we have people in government who are not acting in the best interests of this nation or its people - for various reasons. These congressmen are virtually unremovable because they have set up a system whereby they are ensured millions of dollars to keep themselves in power. Unless we can vote them out of office in the next two elections, our nation and our system of government that we love so much will be gone and we will have lost what our forefathers fought and died to preserve for us. We have to forget about party affiliations, we have to select men and women for government office who will act in the best interests of the nation and who will honor their oaths to protect and defend the constitution. \par \plain\f3\fs20

\plain\f2\fs20 \par Some have reaped the financial rewards of the revolving money door between the military and industry. Cheney became a member of the board of directors of Morgan Stanley. the Union Pacific Corp., Procter & Gamble Co. and Electronic Data Systems Corp. (Ross Perot company) Most importantly, in 1995 Cheney became the CEO of Halliburton (owner of Brown and Root) As chairman of the board, he held a $45.5 million stake as Halliburton's biggest individual stockholder. Brown and Root reaped multi-millions from the Bosnia war. In 1998 he got the idea that Halliburton should purchase Dresser Industries, for $8.1 billion (creating the world's largest oil-drilling services company) while on a quail hunt with Dresser chair Bill Bradford. Dresser and Halliburton merged. Dresser Industries was owned and operated by Brown Brothers Harriman. Prescott Bush (George H.W.'s father) was a partner of Brown Brothers and on the board of Dresser for decades until he became a U.S. Senator. Permindex was a corporate front, headed by Major Louis M. Bloomfield of Canada. Clay Shaw operated a division of Permindex in New Orleans at the International Trade Mart. Halliburton was one of the financiers of Permindex. George and Herman Brown of Brown and Root were also financiers. Halliburton acquired Brown and Root after 1963. Researchers of JFK have tried since 1963 to determine if GHWB had any intelligence role in November 1963. Efforts to conclusively prove that GHWB was an agent at that time have been futile. Efforts to conclusively prove that he was directly involved with the Cuban exiles have also been futile. This is so, despite the close proximity of the Zapata oil platform to Cuba and the naming of boats for the Bay of Pigs invasion, notably the "Barbara." However, the financial and corporate structures which have financed GHWB and now his son, can be conclusively proven by documents. Note how these roots lead to the Harrimans, British Intelligence (right-wing variety) and to Halliburton and Brown and Root, thus to Permindex. Who were the clients of Brown Brothers Harriman when Prescott Bush and his wife's father, George H. Walker, worked for them? It was these investors who funded campaigns. His biggest contributors were his uncle Herbie Walker, formerly of St. Louis, and Eugene Meyer, whose father spent his entire career working for a competing investment bank--Lazard Freres--or Lazard Brothers, as it was called in London. Lazard Brothers was controlled by officials in the British government. It was always the investment bank of David Rockefeller. And, besides Meyer and Walker, George Bush's other large investor in Bush-Overbey was British Assets Trust, Ltd., an investment company whose directors interlocked with the management of companies associated with Lord Kindersley, such as Hudson's Bay Company. In the same year that Zapata and Pennzoil were moving toward hostile takeovers, a new Swiss bank opened in Houston with J. Hugh Liedtke and GHWB's securities adviser, W.S. Farish III, amoung the directors. Called "Bank for Investment and Credit Berne" (BICB), its stock was owned by Capital National Bank and Paravicini Bank, but investors included Seagrams, Boeing, Minute Maid in Zurich, the London subsidiary of Brown and Root and the Schlesinger organisation of London and Johannesburg. These investors are more than interesting in light of the fact that Paravicini is a descendant of the Venetian Pallavicini family, whose attorney in Rome, Carlo d'Amelio, was the general counsel to Centro Mondiale Commerciale (CMC), the Italian arm of Permindex. CMC was incorporated in Berne Switzerland, and D' Amelio sat on the board of directors during the time that Seagrams' attorney, Louis Mortimer Bloomfield of Montreal, was chairman of Permindex. When the role of CMC in the attempted assassination of President DeGaulle of France was discovered, it fled Europe and re-emerged in Johannesburg, South Africa. However, the parent company, Permindex, continued to be managed from Montreal by Bloomfield. Clay Shaw, the man prosecuted in New Orleans by Jim Garrison for his role in the Kennedy assassination, was also a board member of CMC, with which his International Trade Mart had connections. The connections between Clay Shaw, David Ferrie and Lee Harvey Oswald have, at this time, been proven by documentary and photographic evidence, despite myriad attempts to discredit the Garrison investigation. According to a 1970 report called "The Torbitt Document," a compilation of information gathered by a Texas attorney from "court-approved and documented evidence" from sources in the U.S. Customs Department and the Narcotics Bureau, from the Warren Commission and the Garrison investigations, Bloomfield's Permindex Corp. supervised five subsidiary groups: (1) "White Russian" organisation called the Solidarists--members Ferenc Nagy of Dallas (former Hungarian premier) and Jean De Menil of Houston (head of Schlumberger); (2) American Council of Churches--H.L. Hunt organisation; (3) Free Cuba Committee--Carlos Prio Soccaras (Cuban ex-president); (4) "The Syndicate"--Clifford Jones and Bobby Baker working with Joe Bonanno Mafia family; (5) Aerospace security division--Werner Von Braun, headquarters in Redstone Arsenal in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and on East Broad Street in Columbus, Ohio. The JFK scenario was planned and carried out by Division Five of the bureau, which acted in conjunction with the defence intelligence agency under the control of the joint chiefs. These divisions had a highly secret police agency called the defence, industrial and security commands, which also worked with aerospace, atomic energy commission (AEC), USIA and weapons and ammunition supply corporations (munitions makers) which contract with those agencies. The police force originated in the 1930's to work for the Tennessee Valley Authority, then expanded to the AEC, tying it in with army intelligence. Agents of this force included Clay Shaw, Guy Bannister, David Ferrie, Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby and others, and was headed up by Bloomfield. According to the Torbitt report: The principal financiers of Permindex were a number of U.S. oil companies, H.L. Hunt, Clint Murchison, John De Menil, Solidarist director of Houston, John Connally, as executor of Sid Richardson estate, Haliburton [sic] Oil Co., Sen. Robert Kerr of Okla., Troy Post of Dallas, Lloyd Cobb of New Orleans, Dr. Oechner of New Orleans, George and Herman Brown of Brown & Root, Attorney Roy M. Cohn, Chairman of the Board for Lionel Corp., New York City, Schenley Industries of New York City, Walter Dornberger, ex-Nazi general and his company, Bell Aerospace, Pan American World Airways and its subsidiary, Intercontinental Hotel Corp., Paul Raigorodsky of Claiborne Oil of New Orleans, Credit Suisse of Canada, and Heineken's Brewery Of Canada and a host of other munitions makers and aerospace contractors directed by the defence, industrial and security commands. Permindex was the operator of death squads in Europe, Mexico, Central American, the Caribbean and the United States. The persons and corporations who worked with Permindex took over the government of the United States of America on November 22, 1963. The perpetrators have never been brought to justice, and now Halliburton, a Permindex backer. Roy Cohn was a very close friend of Lewis Rosenstiel, who was in turn a friend of Sam Bronfman. Bloomfield was also president of Heineken of Canada. What these companies seem to have in common is their shareholders, directors and financiers. They are the same persons who invested in Bush-Overbey, Zapata and Dresser Industries through the investment trusts they controlled. The 1992 edition of Dope, Inc. (a LaRouche publication) has this to say about the banks involved: Both Seagram's (and its old Prohibition rum-running partner, Hudson's Bay) are interlocked through a maze of contacts with all five of the big Canadian chartered banks: the Bank of Montreal, the Royal Bank of Canada, the Bank of Nova Scotia, the Toronto Dominion Bank, and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Thus, the \ldblquote dirty\rdblquote money gleaned from the drug trade is conduited through these banks to points further south: The banks' offshore centers in the Caribbean, and from there the money makes its whirlpool round of worldwide laundering. The chairman of this Houston-based international investment bank, BICB, whose investors included Seagrams and the Schlesinger mining interests in South Africa, was Johan F. (Fred) Paravicini. Vice-chairman was L.F.McCollum, Sr.-a long-time Humble Oil employee, who headed CONOCO and founded Capital National Bank of Houston in 1965. The bank's president was Baker Lovett, cousin of James A. Baker III, and grandson of the first president of Rice University, Odell Lovett, a friend of Woodrow Wilson at Princeton. In an interview with the Houston Post, Baker stated that his experience of 15 years in banking indicated that Houston had a relatively short supply of money, and that venture capital had to come from New England-from "more mature economies." He believed a bank "should dedicate a portion of its resources to relatively risky situations because it's those which sometimes really pay off." As the 1980s showed, however, it was also that type of investment that resulted in the bailout of the savings and loan industry. In addition to its investment in the BICB set up by CONOCO's chairman, Seagrams also owned a great deal of stock in CONOCO and caused a major eruption with DuPont in 1981 over who would control the company. Seagrams was interested in CONOCO because it owned a 53% interest in Hudson's Bay Oil and Gas Co. in Canada. Since it had recently received $2.3 billion cash profit from the sale of Sunoco stock, with which it had tried and failed to purchase control of DuPont's St. Joe Minerals, the Scottish-financed liquor barons at Seagrams saw another chance to grab something prized by the New Englanders-control of CONOCO. In 1969 W.S.Farish III was 31 years old and was a partner in the investment companies of Underwood Neuhaus and W.S.Farish & Co., through which he handled millions of dollars of his family's wealth in addition to George Bush's blind trust. Farish was also serving as president of a company called Fluorex, an international mineral and exploration company, and in 1973 also became a director of Houston Natural Gas. He was the only grandson of one of the founders of Humble Oil, W.S.Farish, Sr., who had been chairman of Standard Oil of New Jersey prior to World War II. W.A.Harriman & Co. helped Jersey Standard finance a merger with I.G.FARBEN, THE GERMAN CHEMICAL CORPORATION WHICH MANUFACTURED THE GAS USED TO EXTERMINATE SO MANY JEWS. Lehman Brothers, which had an office in Capital National Bank's building at 1300 Main-on the same floor, incidentally, as George Bush's friend (and later, Commerce Secretary, Robert Mosbacher), was represented on the board of the Capital National and its international investment branch. One director was Lehman Brothers partner, John B. Carter, Jr., and another was director I.H."Denny"Kempner III, heir to the Imperial Sugar fortune, whose brother was a Lehman representative in Houston. The decision to form a partnership with Paravicini may have also been influenced by another Lehman representative- William Mellon Hitchcock- grandson of William Larimer Mellon, founder of Gulf Oil, and nephew of banker Andrew Mellon. Bush's partners in Zapata were the sons of William Liedtke, Sr.-one of the "highest ranking lawyers in Gulf Oil Corp." What Hitchcock shows us is a classic fondi member, educated at Harvard, trained at Lazard Brothers during Lord Cowdray's tenure, who while vacationing in Venice, is recruited to work for agency-connected investment bank with connections to the Bronfman family by a member of his father's polo team! How did he manage to get caught? These people never get caught. But what was never followed up on was how Hitchcock and Paravicini were connected to CONOCO, Seagrams, Standard Oil, Brown & Root and the Schlesinger mines in Johannesburg. These connections lead straight to Permindex, the Bronfmans and to the Dallas oil men funding the JFK scenario. They also lead to George Bush through W.S.Farish- investor of his blind trust. Although it has never been proven that Farish, Liedtke or George Bush had any background in intelligence operations before Bush was appointed director of the agency by Gerald Ford in 1976, an inference can be made just by reviewing the associations that existed in the Texas oil community in the 1960s. Billy's training as an investment banker had taken place at the English branch of Lazard Freres, which has been shown to be closely tied to one of George Bush's original investors, Eugene Meyer, and to Everett DeGolyer, a Dresser director who had spent most of his career working for Sir Weetman Pearson (Viscount Cowdray). A vice-president of Empire Trust in Dallas was Jack Crichton (also president of Nafco Oil & Gas, Inc.) who was connected with army reserve intelligence. In a 1995 book written by Fabian Escalante, the chief of a Cuban counterintelligence unit during the late 1950s and early 1960s, he describes that as soon as intelligence was received from agents in Cuba that Fidel Castro had "converted to communism," a plan called "Operation 40" was put into effect by the National Security Council, presided over by Vice-President Richard Nixon. Escalante indicates that Nixon was the Cuban "case officer" who had assembled an important group of businessmen headed by George Bush and Jack Crichton, both Texas oilmen, to gather the necessary funds for the operation. Nixon was a prot\'e9g\'e9 of Bush's father Preston [sic] who in 1946 had supported Nixon's bid for Congress. In fact, Preston Bush was the campaign strategist that brought Eisenhower and Nixon to the presidency of the United States. With such patrons, [Tracy] Barnes was certain that failure was impossible. According to Peter Dale Scott, Crichton arranged for Marina Oswald to have Ilya Mamantov as her interpreter when she was questioned after Oswald's arrest. Mamantov also taught scientific Russian classes at Magnolia Oil Co. Lee and Marina Oswald first met the Paines at a party at the home of Richard Pierce and Everett Glover where practically all the guests worked for Magnolia Oil. The guests included a German named Volkmar Schmidt who came to Dallas in 1961 to do geological research at Magnolia's laboratories in nearby Duncanville. MacNaughton's personal accountant was George Bouhe, who also worked at the Tolstoy Foundation with Paul Raigorodsky-a man involved with the National Alliance of Solidarists. Bouhe was closely tied to George DeMohrenschildt, who later became famous as the White Russian assigned to "handle" Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas. It was DeMohrenschildt who had taken the Oswalds to a party where they met Volkmar Schmidt, and then a later party at the same house where they met Michael Paine. DeMohrenschildt was also the one in charge of getting Marina a place to stay at Ruth Paine's home, and it was Ruth Paine who found Oswald the job at the book depository office in the building owned by Jack Crichton's friend. DeMohrenschildt also was involved with the Russian Orthodox Church outside Russia in Dallas which received subsidies from the Baird Foundation, which was determined to be a agency conduit by the Patman House Select Committee hearings [cf. New York Times, March 5, 1967, p. 36]. DeMohrenschildt immigrated to the U.S. in 1938, having been involved in espionage with the OSS and probably with the Nazis. He had a doctorate in commerce from the University of Liege, Belgium, when he came to the United States at age 27 where his brother Dmitry was a professor at Dartmouth, having degrees from Columbia and Yale. While visiting his brother and American sister-in-law at Bellport, near East Hampton, on the eastern, ocean tip of Long Island, DeMohrenschildt met many influential people, including stockbroker Jack and Janet Bouvier (Jackie's parents). He was also a friend of Margaret Clark Williams, whose family had vast land holdings in Louisiana, who gave him a letter of introduction to Humble Oil. DeMohrenschildt came to Texas by bus "where he got a job with Humble Oil Company in Houston, thanks to family connections," and, "[d]espite being friends with the chairman of the board of Humble," he worked as a roughneck in the Louisiana oil fields. DeMohrenschildt came to Texas in 1944 and got a master's degree in petroleum geology at the University of Texas at Austin. For a time he worked overseas for the Murchisons' Three States Oil and Gas and for Pantipec, an oil company owned by William F. Buckley, Jr.'s father operated in Mexico at the same time Sir Weetman Pearson (later Viscount Cowdray) and DeGolyer were there running the Mexican Eagle. In fact, Buckley and his brother were the attorneys for the Mexican oil companies after their properties were taxed illegally by the Mexican government. According to William Engdahl, Pearson worked for British Secret Intelligence, "as did all other major British oil groups." They had financed and put in power the regime of General Victoriano Huerta, subsequently overthrown by President Woodrow Wilson, who was supporting the objectives of Standard Oil in attempting to take from Britain at least a portion of its concessions for half of Mexico's oil.

THE GOLD EXCHANGE ALSO SERVES AS A MEANS OF PAYMENT FOR THE ILLEGAL WEAPONS TRADE. Through these family and social contacts, connections arose between the Canadian banks, Scottish banks, the Far East, South Africa, the Caribbean and New England. These same families also had strong ties to the Carolinas which was originally settled by a great number of Scottish emigrants who retained strong ties to the mother country. Connections can be shown between Larry Johnson, General Homes and Walter Mischer - a close friend and fund-raiser-through an assortment of complicated corporate relationships.

\plain\f2\fs20 \par S E C T I O N 17.0 \par Money Trail Under Probe Associated Press Flash WASHINGTON (AP) - Investigations have exposed several pieces of Osman bin Laden (news - web sites)'s financial network in the past two months, from honey and diamond dealers to U.S. money-wiring outfits sending millions to Somalia. But U.S. officials concede they have a long way to go to fully disrupt the secretive empire that finances bin Laden's worldwide terrorism operation. ``I think it is not possible to know yet how many more of these kinds of organizations may exist and what other inventive mechanisms may exist that we haven't discovered yet,'' Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill said. The government made a major move Wednesday toward blocking the money behind the terrorists suspected in the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon (news - web sites). President Bush (news - web sites) announced the United States was targeting two organizations, largely underground currency exchanges known as hawalas, funneling large amounts of cash to bin Laden's al-Qaida network. The organizations, Al Taqua and Al-Barakaat, operate in more than 40 countries, including the United States, and channel funds to al-Qaida through companies and nonprofits they run, the administration said. Investigators believe tens of millions of dollars a year flow overseas through al-Barakaat. Much of that was sent by Somali residents of the United States to relatives, with the networks skimming money off for al-Quaida through exchange fees. Investigators believe it works like this: Networks charge a fee to relay money, with one-fourth of the fee kept by the hawala broker who took the money in the United States and another quarter going to the receiving hawala dealer, in Somalia, for instance. The remainder, or half the fee, would be sent to the main company. That's the point where Treasury officials believe money gets funneled to al-Qaida. A criminal complaint filed in Boston suggested some of the money leaving the United States went first to the United Arab Emirates. The money was wired in small increments below $10,000 to escape notice by banking regulators, officials said. The operation was the first for Treasury's new Green Quest terrorist tracking unit. That's not the only creative money-moving mechanism terrorism investigators have discovered. Treasury last month identified three honey-related businesses in Yemen believed to be fronts secretly moving money for al-Qaida. The U.S. government previously linked the owner of one to the main al-Qaida base in Europe used to move money, weapons and the network's members. Foreign officials also believe al-Qaida may be using the illegal African diamond trade to make and hide money. And some U.S. experts think bin Laden has profited from Afghanistan (news - web sites)'s opium trade. Some believe the battle against terrorist financing may never end. ``I don't think you're ever going to know if you've destroyed it completely. It's not a physical target in the way a base is or a military target is,'' said Mark Lowenthal, an intelligence consultant and former staff director of the House Intelligence Committee. ``You have a twofold programme: One, you have to continually track the money sources, and two, once you know about them you have to disrupt them. Once you find one, you have to know there's another one.'' This week, 62 entities and people were added to a list of suspected terrorist associates targeted by the United States. The earlier list included 88 groups or people whose assets were being targeted because of their ties to al-Qaida and other terrorist groups. To date, 112 countries have issued blocking orders. The United States has frozen $26 million in assets of Afghanistan's ruling Taliban and al-Qaida since Sept. 11; another $17 million was blocked by other countries, bringing the global total to $43 million, a Treasury spokeswoman said. In coordinated raids Wednesday, Customs agents seized evidence and shut down Al-Barakaat companies in four cities: Boston, Minneapolis, Seattle and Columbus, Ohio. The Treasury Department (news - web sites) froze assets of nine organizations and two people in the United States, most with links to Al-Barakaat. In addition, bureau (news - web sites) agents raided two Fairfax County businesses seeking evidence of terrorist transactions. The companies cater to the Somali community in northern Virginia, not far from the Treasury Department office where Bush announced the crackdown. In Boston, Mohamed M. Hussein and Liban M. Hussein were charged with running an illegal money-transmitting business, according to a criminal complaint. Officials said Mohamed Hussein was in custody. Liban Hussein was located with family members at a townhouse in Ottawa by the Toronto Star and told the paper he was innocent. ``I have nothing to hide, to be honest with you. If they (the police) need me, I'm here, or I'll even go to them,'' Hussein said. A lack of full international cooperation is the biggest challenge the United States faces as it tries to further undermine terrorist financing, said Jack Blum, former special counsel to Senate Foreign Relations Committee. ``What we really need is a system that operates relatively seamlessly where all of the countries cooperate in the course of an investigation,'' Blum said. ``And of course it doesn't work that way. It's all tangled up in questions of sovereignty.'' Sen. Carl Levin (news - bio - voting record), a sponsor of anti-money laundering legislation recently passed by Congress, said the United States must pressure other countries to adopt tougher laws. Levin's legislation requires banks to take greater steps to make sure accounts have no connection to terrorists or other criminals. Still, he said, investigators' pursuit of terrorist money will have to be relentless. ``We've tried to close those cracks, but they'll try to find other cracks and create more cracks,'' said Levin, D-Mich. Bush thwarted bureau probe against bin Ladens AFP (London, November 7) bureau agents in the United States probing relatives of Saudi-born terror suspect Osman bin Laden (aka Tim Osman) before September 11 were told to back off soon after GWB became president, the BBC has reported. The BBC's Newsnight current affairs programmeme on Tuesday said that Bush at one point had a number of connections with Saudi Arabia's prominent bin Laden family. It added there was a suspicion that the US strategic interest in Saudi Arabia, which has the world's biggest oil reserve, blunted its inquiries into individuals with suspected terrorist connections -- so long as the US was safe. Newsnight reported it had seen secret documents from a bureau probe into the September 11 terror attacks that showed that at least two other US-based members of the bin Laden family are suspected to have links with a possible terrorist organisation. The programmeme said it had obtained evidence that the bureau was on the trail of bin Laden family members living in United States before, as well as after, the terrorist attacks. Newsnight said Bush made his first million 20 years ago with an oil company partly funded by the chief US representative of Salem bin Laden, Osman's brother. Bush also received fees as director of a subsidiary of CARLYLE Corporation, a little-known private company which in just a few years since its founding has become one of America's biggest defence contractors, and his father, George Bush Sr, is also a paid advisor, the programmeme said. The connection became embarrassing when it was revealed that the bin Ladens held a stake in CARLYLE, sold just after September 11, it added. bureau 'was told to back off bin Laden family' London: United States special agents were told to back off the bin Laden family and the Saudi royals soon after George Bush became president, although that has all changed since September 11, a BBC television programme has claimed BBC2's Newsnight also said on Tuesday night that it had secret documents from the bureau investigation into the terrorist attacks which showed that despite claims that Osman bin Laden is the black sheep of the family, at least two other US-based members are suspected of links with a possible terrorist organisation. The programme said it had obtained evidence that the bureau was on the trail of bin Laden family members living in the US before September 11. A document showed that special agents from the Washington field office were investigating Abdullah, a close relative of Osman, because of his relationship with the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), a suspected terrorist organisation, it said. The US Treasury has not frozen WAMY's assets, and insists it is a charity, the programme said, yet Pakistan had expelled WAMY "operatives" and India claimed WAMY was funding an organisation linked to bombings in Kashmir. The bureau did look into WAMY but for some reason agents were pulled off the trail, it said. The former head of the American visa bureau in Jeddah from 1987 to 1989, Michael Springman, told the programme: "In Saudi Arabia I was repeatedly ordered by high-level State Department officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants - people who had no ties either to Saudi Arabia or to their own country. I complained there. I complained here in Washington ... and I was ignored." He added: "What I was doing was giving visas to terrorists, recruited by the agency and Osman bin Laden to come back to the United States for training to be used in the war in Afghanistan against the then Soviets." The programme said it had been told by a highly placed source in a US intelligence agency there had always been "constraints" on investigating Saudis, but under President George Bush it had become much worse. After the elections, the intelligence agencies were told to "back off" from investigating the bin Laden family and the Saudi royals. The policy was reversed after September 11, it reported. \par \par \par }
