Rumsfeld Announces Defense Department Cannot Track $2.3 Trillion in Transactions.
CBS later calculates that 25 percent of the yearly defense budget is unaccounted for, and quotes a long-time defense budget analyst: “[Their] numbers are pie in the sky. The books are cooked routinely year after year.” Coverage of this rather shocking story is nearly nonexistent given the events of the next day, 9/11. [(1) Defense Department, 9/10/01; (2) CBS News, 1/29/02]
The Department of the Army will state that it won't publish a stand-alone financial statement for 2001 because of “the loss of financial-management personnel sustained during the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.” [(3) Insight, 4/29/02]
This $1.1 trillion plus unknown additional amounts continues to remain unaccounted for, and auditors say it may take eight years of reorganization before a proper accounting can be done. [(4) Insight, 8/21/03]
TELEVISION AND THE HIVE MIND
by Mack White.
Later, psychologist Hadley Cantril conducted a study of the effects of the broadcast and published his findings in a book, The Invasion from Mars: A Study in the Psychology of Panic. This study explored the power of broadcast media, particularly as it relates to the suggestibility of human beings under the influence of fear. Cantril was affiliated with Princeton University's Radio Research Project, which was funded in 1937 by the Rockefeller Foundation. Also affiliated with the Project was Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member and Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) executive Frank Stanton, whose network had broadcast the program. Stanton would later go on to head the news division of CBS, and in time would become president of the network, as well as chairman of the board of the RAND Corporation, the influential think tank which has done groundbreaking research on, among other things, mass brainwashing.
As many of you may know, Noam Chomsky has been a longtime critic of those who believed there lie conspiracy within the Vietnam war and the murder of JFK. When it comes to this covert history, one man stands out as a paragon in scholars of our history, Peter Dale Scott. Scott has often proven Chomsky, and his like, wrong with his unparallelled research. Last year, before this blog came into existence, I read a compelling article by James K. Galbraith, son of John Kenneth Galbraith, ambassador and advisor to the Kennedy Administration. In his article, Galbraith presented the contrasting views of Chomsky and Scott, along with recently released transcripts from the Kennedy Administration's taped meetings, the weeks before the assassination. Galbraith was also generous enough to share several "insider" quotes that held far-reaching implications. Most will not even hypothesize on the true meaning of these quotes, for the nightmare is greater than most would want to imagine. The quotes lead the mind where it does not wish to travel- writers do not need to lead the reader with theory.
SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY: Oil: Never Cry Wolf--Why the Petroleum Age Is
After World War I, the United States was shaken by predictions of the exhaustion of domestic oil. Even the head of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)--among many others--delivered a verdict of gloom in 1919: The country would run out of oil within 9 years! (1) Facing mounting hysteria, President Coolidge set up the Federal Oil Conservation Board in 1924, to draft legislation to preserve national resources. After the conversion of Great Britain's naval fleet from coal to oil in 1914, the UK also feared that it would be vulnerable to oil shortages and moved to secure its grip on the Persian Gulf. These cycles of hysteria followed by new bonanzas have continued to the present. Thus, it is not surprising that a new wave of "oil doomsters" predicting imminent petroleum scarcity has gained momentum (2-4).
The worst effect of this recurring oil panic is that it has driven Western political circles toward oil imperialism and attempts to assert direct or indirect control over oil-producing regions. Yet the world is not running out of oil, and catastrophic views fail to take into account the complex reality that will allow reliance on abundant supplies for years to come.
Fourteen huge, permanent bases are currently under construction in Iraq, along with the world's biggest embassy in Baghdad (3,500 employees, and counting). Bush will continue on a permanent war footing in the Middle East in order to protect U.S. dollar hegemony. There is no other option. All future wars will be run out of Iraq. Iran has been making noises lately about ditching the U.S. dollar in favor of the euro, as have the Saudis. They're next. The U.S. will dismantle OPEC and surround Saudi Arabia, keeping their hand firmly on the oil spigot. This is the essence of the petro-dollar warfare that we are witnessing, in a nutshell....

One for Humanity and One for her Country , by Duey Graham.
Angela M. Houtz
The daily commute was like any other that Tuesday as Bob Houtz stopped for gas at Cahill's on Route One until he heard the news from an attendant. En route from his home in Nobleboro to his job as Chef for the Ocean Point Inn, Houtz watched the second plane hit the Trade Center before heading onto Ocean Point, his mind racing with target scenarios. His older daughter, a Latin and South American affairs expert for the NIS, was in Washington, D.C. and could be in harm's way.
Reaching Ocean Point, he was told that a third plane had hit the Pentagon and he instantly felt empty and scared but confident Angela would call when she could. A Senior Analyst for Naval Intelligence, Angela worked in the refurbished and reinforced section that was struck by Flight 77 but he was not quite sure where. Calling her apartment with hope that Angie would answer, Bob learned from her roommates that the Navy was looking for her too; the phrase "unaccounted for" was tearing at his hope. After phoning younger daughter Jaime, a nurse in hometown LaPlata, Maryland the family could only wait. When no further word came by eight that night, reality hit home hard.
Angela's Commander called at 2 p.m. and confirmed the worst. Angela Houtz was in a C-ring meeting with 17 other top-level Pentagon analysts, investigators and generals who had just gathered to dissect the ongoing Trade Towers attack when Flight 77 plowed through two outer rings before engulfing the room where they met. "She was working in the big leagues for the Joints Chiefs of Staff," stated Commander David Radi, Angie's boss for over a year.

If so, that must have been meticulous planning, to eliminate them so far from the Pentagon walls. It must have been VERY close to that famous circular EXIT HOLE.
Only a rain of very fast moving depleted-uranium particles or a nearby shape-charged explosion could have secured the outcome of a planned assassination attack on ONI analysts and Army accounting and auditing personnel in the way of possible 9/11 planners.
Computed origin times and seismic magnitudes are listed in Figure 1.
Origin times with an uncertainty of 2 s were calculated from the arrival times of Rg (Rayleigh) waves at PAL using a velocity of 2 km/s.
The terrorist bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995, was also seismically recorded. The first seismic records looked unusual, and prompted some researchers to conclude two separate blasts -- that is, two separate bombs -- were involved, Wallace said. But when the Murrah Building later was demolished, the seismic record was identical leaving experts to conclude there had been a single terrorist bomb. "In some sense this is derivative, but it's really important for providing independent constraints on what happened," Wallace said.
Then on March 20, 1996,Strategic Investment Newsletter reported that a Pentagon study had been leaked which backed up General Partin's analysis:
A classified report prepared by two independent Pentagon experts has concluded that the destruction of the federal building in Oklahoma City last April was caused by FIVE separate bombs. The two experts reached the same conclusion for the same technical reasons. Sources close to the Pentagon study say Timothy McVeigh did play a role in the bombing but peripherally, as a "useful idiot." The multiple bombings have a Middle Eastern "signature," pointing to either Iraqi or Syrian involvement. [ref.60]"
A classified Pentagon study determines Oklahoma bombing was caused by more than one bomb," Strategic Investment Newsletter, 3/20/96.
55. Some rescue workers, it was also rumored, had become ill with mysterious illnesses. They suffered from physical exhaustion and could barely drag themselves to work, it was reported, although these reports have not been substantiated. Of the 43 FEMA dogs that took part in the rescue effort, four died and one became ill. Rumors quickly spread that the dogs had died of radiation poisoning. The body of one of the deceased dogs, it was claimed, had been exhumed, his lungs found to be radioactive. The culprit was supposedly a radioactive isotope called Tritium. A heavy form of hydrogen, Tritium is an essential ingredient in nuclear weapons. In microscopic quantities it is also used as a "tracer" in medical procedures — injected into the bloodstream as an aid in radiology scanning.
AMEC Construction Management, a subsidiary of the British engineering firm AMEC, renovated Wedge One of the Pentagon before 9-11 and cleaned it up afterward. AMEC had also renovated Silverstein's WTC 7, which collapsed mysteriously on 9-11, and then headed the cleanup of the WTC site afterward. The AMEC construction firm is currently in the process of closing all its offices in the United States.
American Free Press has documentation that radiation levels in Alexandria and Leesburg, Va., were much higher than usual on 9-11 and persisted for at least one week afterward. In Alexandria, seven miles south of the burning Pentagon, a doctor with years of experience working with radiation issues found elevated radiation levels on 9-11 of 35 to 52 counts per minute (cpm) using a "Radalert 50" Geiger counter. One week after 9-11, in Leesburg, 33 miles northwest of the Pentagon, soil readings taken in a residential neighborhood showed even higher readings of 75 to 83 cpm. "That's pretty high," Cindy Folkers of the Washington-based Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) told AFP. Folkers said 7 to 12 cpm is normal background radiation inside the NIRS building, and that outdoor readings of between 12 to 20 cpm are normal in Chevy Chase, Md., outside Washington. The Radalert 50, Folkers said, is primarily a gamma ray detector and "detects only 7 percent of the beta radiation and even less of the [very short lived] alpha." This suggests that actual radiation levels may have been significantly higher than those detected by the doctor's Geiger counter. "The question is, why?" Folkers said. If the radiation came from the explosion and fire at the Pentagon, it most likely did not come from a Boeing 757, which is the type of aircraft that allegedly hit the building. --- "Boeing has never used DU on either the 757 or the 767, and we no longer use it on the 747," Leslie M. Nichols, product spokesperson for Boeing's 767, told AFP.
Dr. Sherman (77 years old) was downwind from the Pentagon on 9/11 and her Geiger counter readings show an extremely high reading, a reading of more than eight to ten times higher than normal," said Moret, also an expert in the cause and effects of depleted uranium.
"Dr. Sherman, who is well-respected radiation expert herself, then went about contacting the proper authorities in order to try and alert emergency responders of the radiation risk at the Pentagon crash site. And we have also kept photos of the Geiger counter readings in order to verify what Dr. Sherman found 12 miles away."
After notifying the Nuclear Industrial Safety Agency (NIRS), experts from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the FBI were alerted and according to Moret, radiation experts later confirmed high radiation levels at the Pentagon crash site possibly from the presence from depleted uranium or other unknown causes.
They measured the sensitivity of five radioactivity detectors against a panel of the seven most common radionuclides used in medical procedures. Then, collaborating with Michael Stabin, PhD, from Vanderbilt University, an expert in calculating excretion rates of radiopharmaceuticals, Zuckier combined these numbers with the radioactivity given to patients for various procedures to determine how long patients could trigger alarms at a monitoring distance of one meter.
The results were presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America in November 2004. Iodine therapy for thyroid cancer or overactive thyroid can set off alarms for up to 95 days. Thallium, used in diagnostic cardiac exams, can be detected for up to 30 days. Bone and thyroid scans can trigger alarms for up to three days, and PET scans less than one day.----
His current vision includes a network of Geiger counters placed strategically throughout New Jersey, which would provide the crucial information necessary to identify "hotspots" in a radiation emergency. So far, his idea for this inexpensive warning system (each Geiger counter costs about $200 and needs to be hooked up to a personal computer) has not taken off
Paradoxically, tritium exit signs are quite common within the U.S.A., especially in older buildings.---Health concerns: Tritium emits beta particles, which cannot pass through the glass of the tube. Tritium is only mildly radioactive, --; even direct, short-term exposure to small amounts is pretty harmless. If a traser vial should break, one should leave the area and allow the gas to diffuse into the air.
Construction worker Phillip Morelli describes being thrown to the ground by two explosions while in the fourth subbasement of the North Tower. The first, which threw him to the ground and seemed to coincide with the plane crash, was followed by a larger blast that again threw him to the ground and this time blew out walls. He then made his way to the South Tower and was in the subbasement there when the second plane hit, again associated with a powerful underground blast. This is one of a series of interviews with WTC survivors done by NY1 News:
page 4/294 : "Disclaimer No. 3 "... and that 'disclosure of that information would inhibit the voluntary provision of that type of information' ... In addition, a substantial portion of the evidence collected by NIST in the course of the Investigation has been provided to NIST under nondisclosure agreements."
page 44/294 : ""... the fire chiefs who established the original Command Post inside the lobby of WTC 1 ... the buildings water supply was compromised ...and there were no working elevators that could transport fire fighters ... "
"From the time of the first airplane impact into WTC 1 to the collapse of WTC 2, a period of approximately one hour and 12 minutes, emergency responders inside WTC 1 were able to climb to floors in the 40s. However, a small number of emergency responders got to floors in the 40s by taking the only operating elevator nr 50 to the 16th floor and then using the stairs. A report from one building occupant indicated that they saw firefighters located on floors about in the 50s. (NIST 2004) Within WTC 2, one FDNY Batallion Chief and Ladder Company got to floors in the 70s. They were able to take an elevator from the lobby to the 40th floor before having to walk up the stairs. ..."
From my above post : "Remember, the lobby was not stainted black from burning or exploded jet fuel ..."
O'Neill was on the 34th floor of the North Tower when the first plane hit. He had evacuated the building and was last seen alive by fellow FBI agent Wesley Wong outside the South Tower (WTC 2) about 15 minutes before it collapsed. His uncharred body would be found weeks later under a stairwell of that same building. John O'Neill --the Man who Knew--was dead at age 49.
At the very bottom : "At one point, he was on his cell phone and he was having trouble with the reception and started walking away. I said, 'I'll catch up with you later.' Wong last saw O'Neill walking toward the tunnel leading to the second tower."
In the minutes after the attack, O'Neill makes his way to the command center that had been set up. There he sees FBI agent Wesley Wong. Wong would tell Esquire magazine later, "He was in FBI mode. Then he turned and kind of looked at me and went toward the interior of the complex. From the time John walked away to the time the building collapsed was certainly not more than a half hour or 20 minutes." Wong is the last person to see him alive.
Page 23/23. CONCLUSION.
The graph of Thorium versus Lithium including the Girder Coatings has exactly the same form as the graph showing Thorium versus Uranium, also including the Girder Coatings. Without the two Girder Coatings the correlation of Thorium to Lithium in the dust is completely linear.
We therefore have compelling evidence that this fission pathway of Uranium to Thorium and Helium, with subsequent decay of the Helium into Lithium, has indeed taken place.
It is out of the question that all of these correlations which are the signature of a nuclear explosion could have occurred by chance. This is impossible.
The presence of rare Trace elements such as Cerium, Yttrium and Lanthanum is enough to raise eyebrows in themselves, let alone in quantities of 50ppm to well over 100ppm. When the quantities then vary widely from place to place but still correlate with each other according to the relationships expected from nuclear fission, it is beyond ALL doubt that the variations in concentration are due to that same common process of nuclear fission.
When we find Barium and Strontium present, in absolutely astronomical concentrations of over 400ppm to over 3000ppm, varying from place to place but varying in lockstep and according to known nuclear relationships – the implications are of the utmost seriousness.
The presence of Thorium and Uranium correlated to each other by a clear mathematical power relationship – and to other radionucleide daughter products – leaves nothing more to be said.
This type of data has probably never been available to the public before. It is an unprecedented insight into the action of a nuclear device. Nuclear weapon scientists around the world will have seized this data to analyze it and try and determine exactly what type of device produced it.
September 11th, 2001, was the first Nuclear event within a major United States city and a global financial center of the world and this is the biggest secret of this century, until now.
While there seems to be no theoretical obstacles to the production of 10to.the18th anti-protons per day (the amount required for triggering one thermonuclear bomb), the construction of such a plant involves several techniques which are between 3 and 4 orders of magnitude away from present day technology.
Considering the financial and energy investments needed to produce antimatter, applications will probably remain confined to the military domain.
Since antihydrogentriggered thermonuclear explosives are very compact and have extremely reduced fallout, we conclude that such devices will enhance the proliferation of nuclear weapons and further diffuse the distinction between low-yield nuclear weapons and conventional explosives.
Early in 1983 at CERN, an international team of more than 100 physicists headed by Rubbia, known as the UA1 Collaboration, detected the intermediate vector bosons, a triplet of particles, the W+, the W – and the Zzero,which had become a cornerstone of modern theories of elementary particle physics, long before they were observed by Rubbia and collaborators.
They are believed to carry the weak force that causes radioactive decay in the atomic nucleus and controls the combustion of the Sun, just as photons, massless particles of light, carry the electromagnetic force which causes most physical and biochemical reactions.
To achieve energies high enough to create the intermediate vector bosons (particles roughly one hundred times as heavy as the proton), Rubbia proposed, with David Cline and Peter McIntyre, the use of a beam of protons and a beam of anti-protons, their antimatter twins, counter-rotating and colliding head-on.
These revolutionary techniques were developed with Simon van der Meer, with whom Rubbia shared the 1984 Nobel Prize in Physics. Rubbia was one of the leaders in a collaboration effort based deep in the Gran Sasso Laboratory designed to detect any sign of decay of the proton.
The experiment seeks evidence that would disprove the conventional belief whereby matter is stable.
The experiment, known as ICARUS and based on a new technique of electronic detection of ionizing events in ultra-pure liquid Argon, is now operational at the University of Pavia, awaiting its transfer to the Gran Sasso Laboratory.
More recently he proposed the concept of an Energy Amplifier – a novel and safe way of producing nuclear energy exploiting present-day accelerator technologies, which is actively being studied worldwide in order (1) to incinerate high activity waste from accelerators and (2) to produce energy from natural thorium and depleted uranium.
The energy resources which potentially could derive from these fuels will be practically unlimited and comparable to those from Fusion.
His activities are presently concentrated on the problem of energy supply for the future.
Carlo Rubbia is the co-author of 546 scientific publications, of which 245 have been published in major scientific journals. For a complete list please email a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The proposed 10-ton TNT-alike "micro-nuke," would pack a punch 10 times the size of the largest non-nuclear bombs dropped by U.S. forces during the Persian Gulf War. It would be 1/500th the size of the B-61, currently the smallest nuclear warhead in the Pentagon inventory.
The labs also are weighing development of a "mini-nuke," with the explosive power of 100 tons of TNT, to destroy nuclear, biological and chemical warheads in flight, according to Los Alamos documents.
A third warhead -- known as the "tiny-nuke" -- would have the power of 1,000 tons of TNT and might be used against enemy ground troops. The Army, which in recent years gave up all of its battlefield nuclear weapons, had nuclear artillery shells about this size.
The Los Alamos documents declare that "any long-term nuclear stockpile should include several hundred low-yield nuclear weapons systems."
