Yockeyism is central to understanding the events in, and around, 9/11. This manifestation of fascism aims at uniting elements of the left, the Third World and the Underground Reich in an alliance aimed at annihilating the world’s Jewish population and destroying the United States and its culture

It appears the Bush administration is covering up Saudi connections to 9/11
One of the most alarming aspects of the Bush administration’s active cover-up of the Saudi involvement in terror-related activities concerns a directive given to US intelligence agencies not to investigate a Pakistani-based nuclear smuggling ring.
(FTR#’s 447 www.spitfirelist.com... , 450 www.spitfirelist.com... , 454 www.spitfirelist.com...
This directive was given in order to protect the Saudis, who had financed the nuclear ambitions of the Pakistanis and Iraqis.
In Serpent’s Walk, the Underground Reich’s takeover of the United States follows a devastating bio-terror attack on the United States using genetically engineered micro-organisms. This attack destroys much of the country and leads to a declaration of martial law. Who launched the anthrax attacks shortly after 9/11? An unanswered question concerns the possibility of Underground Reich authorship of this event.
Andreas Strassmeir, the German neo-Nazi, son of former Chancellor Helmut Kohl’s chief of staff and the alleged mastermind of the Oklahoma City Bombing was trying to buy a surplus Boeing 747 from Lufthansa. Was this a foreshadowing of the 9/11 attacks?

The struggle between Anglo-Saxonia (the US and UK) and Germany/EU is highlighted in the context of the politics surrounding the 9/11 attacks. In particular, the programs set forth the significance of the month of August of 1998, the month in which US embassies in Africa were attacked. In that month, the German/EU attack on Menwith Hill commenced, Osama bin Laden ceased using his cell phone to communicate and the cell in Hamburg that launched the 9/11 attacks was already under physical surveillance. These events are intimately related. Taken together, they constitute “the Battle of Menwith Hill.” Significantly, it was bin Laden’s counterintelligence on US signals intelligence capability that enabled him to use his satellite phone as a ruse in order to elude capture by the US at the battle of Tora Bora.
From an investigative standpoint, evidentiary tributaries running from 9/11 to other terrorist incidents including the Oklahoma City bombing, the first World Trade Center attack, the AMIA bombing in Argentina are of more than passing interest.
Are these points of intersection indicative of Underground Reich authorship of these events, as well as 9/11? There is a marked similarity between the climactic event of The Turner Diaries (the reported inspiration for Timothy McVeigh & Company in the Oklahoma City bombing) and the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon.

The behavior of the German authorities in connection with September 11 is noteworthy and more than a little suspicious. Why did the Germans seek to deflect attention in the direction of US, British and Israeli foreknowledge of the attacks when they had the headquarters of the cell that launched the attacks under surveillance since at least August of 1998?
Equally alarming is the Germans’ release of Christian Ganczarski, an important Al Qaeda operative. (FTR#393 www.spitfirelist.com...

Investigative reporter Daniel Hopsicker has alleged that six of Mohammed Atta’s associates at the Florida flight schools that trained many of the 9/11 pilots were children of the German elite.
Atta’s sponsorship in Germany was allegedly undertaken by a joint US/German sponsored foundation the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft—named after one of the founders of the IG Farben chemical cartel. (FTR#408 www.spitfirelist.com... One should note that the German people have very strong democratic and peace-loving instincts, having derived these from the experiences of Two World Wars. The German institutions—the corporations, the BND and the Bundeswehr—learned a very different lesson. They profited from their actions in World War II and transcended the devastation that the German people experienced. They simply learned that there weren’t enough expendable bodies in Germany to realize their aims, and they undertook to use other bodies to effect the program of the Underground Reich.
Like Al Qaeda, the Underground Reich is a “virtual state”—a state without formal geographical borders as such. This “virtual statehood” is one of the characteristics that make both organizations so effective, so elusive, and so difficult to combat.
According to Baron Manhattan's research:
"The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others. The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc. ”
A nationally syndicated Catholic priest has stated,
“The Catholic Church must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States Government.” [The Vatican Billions]

Squirreled away in 50 miles of catacombs shelving, this volatile stockpile of scandals dating back over 1,000 years is the real deal.
Not long after the Vatican State received sovereignty and $85 million after signing an alliance with Hitler's fascist mentor, Mussolini in 1929, Pope Pius XII dealt with another devil he admired, closing down the Catholic-dominated Center Party, one of the Nazi Socialist Party's strongest opponents. As Jews were being carted away to gas chambers from their ghetto beneath the Vatican's windows, instead of condemning the Holocaust, "One 1946 U.S. Treasury document alone shows the Vatican serving as a repository for more than 200 million Swiss francs.

The Vatican's sins in Croatia continued. In 2005, UN chief prosecutor Carla del Ponte charged that a “most wanted” war criminal was being shielded Franciscan monastery by the Vatican hierarchy. A fugitive since 2001, with a $6 million bounty on his head, General Gotovina was charged with crimes against humanity. In a statement that must have challenged the Mossad, Del Ponti told the press, “The Catholic Church has the most advanced intelligence services.” (Trumpet.com Sept 23/05)
Among those rescued by the Holy See were the notorious Gestapo killers Klaus Barbie, Adolph Eichmann, Gustav Wagner, Franz Stangl (head of the Treblinka extermination facility), members of the SS (Super Sadistic) Waffen Galician Division - and the diabolical Dr. Joseph Mengele, the widely feared "Angel of Death” at the Auschwitz death camp.

“The Vatican is the strongest push for banking in the world,” “When it comes to moving money or not moving money, they are the key. Bank of England. That's where they came from. Everything is a promissory note to the Bank of England. The Federal Reserve doesn't come close.”
Where do U.S. banks get their marching orders?
From theOften seen as a U.S. Government agency, the “Fed” is a privately held, for-profit bank that supposedly stands ready to make good on even the dodgiest loans made by U.S. banks that must hold in reserve only 10% of the money they loan. This “fractional reserve banking” means banks can create mortgages & other loans out of thin air. This is ‘fraud’.
Federal Reserve that is constantly in the news setting the interest rates that charge or cripple economies.
In usurping the Constitution, which reserves the sole right to mint U.S. currency at zero interest, the illegal Federal Reserve Act passed during Congressional recess Christmas in 1913 essentially enslaved Americans & their successive governments under a mountain of compounding war debts - before being exported as a model worldwide.
Its final draft was decided at a secret meeting of heavy financial hitters held at JP Morgan's Jekyll Island estate in Georgia. Among those present were Senator Nelson Aldrich, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, Paul Warburg, & several senior officials of J.P. Morgan's banks. (Secrets of the Federal Reserve; The Creature from Jekyll Island)
The Federal Reserve Act was created in London by Baron Alfred Rothschild.
Hold on, advises G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature From Jekyll Island.in those days; these were the giants. Prior to this period they were beating their heads against each other, blood all over the battlefield fighting for dominance in the financial markets of the world.
“We had the Morgans, the Rockefellers, Kuhn, Loeb & Company, the Rothschilds & the Warburgs… These were the major competitors in the field of investment & banking- to print money, collect taxes, & charge interest to the U.S. Government & other borrowing banks on loans made from nothing.
& here they are sitting around a table coming to an agreement of some kind. They came together completely & decided not to compete - they formed a cartel”
With European banking savvy, Warburg was most knowledgeable banker in the group.”(quotes.liberty-tree.ca)
Voicing the Jesuit agenda, this non-ordained “cohort” will later tell the Senate: "We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent."
Mullins writes, “This patent removal of the system from Congressional control meant the Fed proposal was unconstitutional from its inception.” (Secrets of the Federal Reserve)
John Pierpont Morgan was born in 1837 during the first money panic in the United States, said to have been caused by the House of Rothschild. It was this family who later bailed out Morgan's bank, uniting both houses. (Secrets Of The Federal Reserve; cyberclass.net)
According to Eric Jon Phelps, whose prodigious research for Vatican Assassins runs thousands of pages, the executive vice-president of Morgan Bank today is the Sovereign Military Order of Malta's U.S. secretary. “At Morgan Bank's New York headquarters is a telex which links SMOM U.S. to SMOM headquarters in Rome,” Phelps states.
DaVinci Code aside, who are the real Knights of Malta? According to their official website, founded in Jerusalem during the 11th century, the 12,500-strong “Order of Malta is a lay, religious order of the Catholic Church (who) seek to glorify God through… work with the sick & the poor & witness of the Catholic faith.” (smom.org)
This smokescreen site does not mention how this ancient Jesuit order became militarized to hold land won by the first Crusade. Or its many interwoven links with Freemasonry, including the Order's Nazi-borrowed Maltese Cross, which is often depicted with the Roman Empire's double-headed eagle signifying dominion over East & West, above the Masonic inscription: “Order Out of Chaos” - time-proven Mithric recipe used by controlling elites to frighten large populations into begging for the “protection” that enslaves them.
The Knights of Malta include many current heads of state, industry, media & entertainment. For a contemporary example, check out right-wing Christian extremist Joseph Schmitz. Operating under his department shield - “Always Under The Protection Of The Almighty” - this Pentagon's Inspector general brought scandal after scandal to the almighty while overseeing military contractors for the Bush White House from 2200 to 2005. At least 149 contracts totaling more than $42 billion were covered-up by Schmitz as corporations like Halliburton, KBR, Bechtel, Flour, CACA, Triple Canopy, Dyn Corp & Blackwater cashed in on the crushing of urban Iraq. Schmitz blocked many Congressional probes into graft, corruption & profiteering by such Luciferian-style “luminaries” as Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle,& implicated God in massive vote-rigging by saying that God put GW Bush in the White House after the majority of Americans voted against him.
Iraq's first U.S.-appointed warlord Paul Bremer, & Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin - who called Allah “an idol,”
Pentagon's Schmitz called repeatedly for a government & military “under the rule of law under God.” He also - as Jeremy Scahill writes in Blackwater - “proudly listed his membership in the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.”
Under heavy fire for blocking investigations into Abu Ghraib torture & Edward Aldridge's Boeing tanker scam, Schmitz resigned from the Bush gang to join Catholic Christian fundamentalist Eric Prince's Blackwater mercenaries in 2005. As crazed as any Taliban radical calling for a return to strict Sharia law, the
The Knights of Malta, as we have seen, also enjoy direct input to the Fed through the Morgan Bank.
By June 1932, Congressman Louis McFadden was fed up with the Fed. “We have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks… private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves,” the Chair of the House Committee on Banking and Currency told the House of Representatives.
“The United States has been ransacked and pillaged…The truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the Government of the United States. It controls everything here… to supply financial power to an international super state - a super state controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world.”

Those dollars in your wallet are actually “Federal Reserve notes”. These “promises to pay” are not items of intrinsic value called “money”. Regardless of denomination, each bill printed by the Bureau of Printing and Engraving in D.C. on contract from the privately held Federal Reserve is actually worth exactly three-tenths of one penny.
No wonder the Fed's founder, Nathan Rothschild, once boasted: "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws." The privately printed .3 cent thousand-dollar bills streaming in sheets off the presses become “liabilities and obligations of the United States Government, and are added to our present ($6) trillion debt,” Mullins mentions. “The government had no debt when the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913.” (Secrets of the Federal Reserve) www.fdrs.org...
In case you're wondering, the never properly ratified U.S. income tax was also introduced by busy banksters in 1913 as the only means to finance the wars that ensure perpetual profits from pyramiding public and corporate debt. The U.S. “Federal Income Tax” is not “federal” either.
According to attorney, author and federal witness, Paul Andrew Mitchell, “After much diligent research, several investigators have concluded that there is no known Act of Congress, nor any Executive Order, giving IRS lawful jurisdiction to operate within any of the 50 States of the Union.… When all the evidence is examined objectively, IRS appears to be a money laundry, extortion racket, and conspiracy to engage in a pattern of racketeering activity, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1951 and 1961 et seq. (“RICO”)… In other words, it is an organized crime syndicate operating under false and fraudulent pretenses.”
As Eustace Mullins helpfully explains - and Aaron Russo's DVD “America: Freedom To Fascism” demonstrates –All personal income taxes collected by the IRS are required by law to be deposited in the nearest Federal Reserve Bank.”
“The IRS is actually a private collection agency for the Federal Reserve System. It originated as the Black Hand in mediaeval Italy, collectors of debt by force and extortion for the ruling Italian mob families.
In other words, into the pockets of the Rothschilds, Warburgs, Schiffs, Rockefellers, Harrimans, Morgans and other elite families. Slick, eh? But don't try to buy any of this hot Fed stock. “The Federal Reserve Act stipulates that the stock of the Federal Reserve Banks cannot be bought or sold on any stock exchange. It is passed on by inheritance as the fortune of the 'big rich',” Mullins relates. “Almost half of the owners of Federal Reserve Bank stock are not Americans.”
These “foreign” owners include the Fed's originators, the Vatican Jesuits.
The Fed gets its orders from the Queen Mum of All Banks, the Bank of England - aka, the Bank of Rothschild. Considered by many to be the world's most powerful institution - the power behind all presidencies, dictatorships and thrones –
does the Bank of England answer to any other bank? Well, yes, actually. The Bank of Rome began opening branch offices in Venice in 1587. Bank of Rome = Vatican Bank controlled by the Jesuit General, aka the “Black” (hidden, shadowy) Pope. The Jesuit's Bank of Rome opened its Bank of England branch in 1694. The first bank to be named after a country, the Bank of England had nothing to do with the British government - except to own it through privately held, interest-compounded debt.
Unaccountable to either the Queen or Parliament, the misleadingly labeled “Bank of England” finances the throne, the British prime minister, parliament and much of the planet out of “The City” located in central London.[Descent into Slavery)
All major British banks have their main offices in this “Square Mile” -- as well as 70 U.S. banks. Throw in the London Stock Exchange, Lloyd's of London, the Baltic Exchange (shipping), Fleet Street (publishing and newspapers), the London Commodity and Metal exchanges - and you are looking at Earth's financial axis.
The City operates as a sovereign state, just like the Vatican. Since 1820, the Rothschilds have traditionally chosen The City's Lord Mayor. Back in the USA, as author Eric Phelps explained in an interview just before publication of his secrecy-shredding Vatican Assassins, (which was held up to include corrections by sympathetic Jesuits)
...the Vatican's Black Robes “own and control” the Federal Reserve Bank “by proxy, through the Knights of Malta, with their various trusts and so on. They never own anything outright; they always own it through a trusted third party.”
Including the Vatican-home mortgage connection.
“That the Jesuits were the disturbers of kingdoms, the oppressors of nations, the masters of the world, I freely admit.” -Marcel de la Roche Arnauld, Roman Catholic Priest (1827)
“All roads do lead to Rome,” We have the Federal Reserve begat by the Bank of England begat by the Bank of Rome. Similarly, the Bank of Canada is an offspring of the Bank of England, which in turn is a child of the Bank of Rome - aka, the Vatican Bank.
And the Vatican, as everyone “knows” is run by the CNN-featured “White” Pope. Left untranslated is the coronation moment when the new Pontiff is told in Latin: “Take thou the tiara adorned with the triple crown, and know that thou art the father of princes and kings, and art the governor of the world.” [Vatican Assassins)
So who runs the White Pope?
Goggle the,shadowy Black Pope, The Jesuit General.
The Jesuits, dude.
According to Baron Avro Manhattan, author of a jaw-dropping series of Vatican books, “Many historians and researchers and one American Congressman stated that:
'The Vatican through the Jesuit Order controlling the Illuminati is in control of the United States Federal Reserve.'” [Vatican Billions by Avro Manhattan)
If “Illuminati” sounds too “conspiratorial” it's because it is! The much-misreferencedThe Jesuits had been tossed out Rome and every country in Europe for their back-stabbing treachery. As Phelps explained to interviewer Rick Martin: “Weishaupt was the promoter of the Illuminati, with the House of Rothschild, for the punishment of the Catholic monarchs of Europe, and the Pope, for suppressing the Jesuit Order. Weishaupt was under the supervision, at least initially, of Jesuit General Ricci, who died in 1775 in Italy. Weishaupt was under orders.” (TheSpectrumNews.org; illuminati-news.com)
“Illuminati” turns out to be a real 15th century German sect established by the Jesuit Adam Weishaupt at the Jesuit's University of Ingolstadt in Bavaria on May 1, 1776.
Go that? The “Illuminati” is a real org founded by the Jesuits at their own German university in the 18th century. In his big book, Phelps explains how the Illuminati took over the House of Rothschild, “creating a colossus of wealth around the world, subject to the Jesuit General.” (Vatican Assassins)
Lucifer means the “illuminated one”. The Bavarian Illuminati believed they possessed the 'light' Lucifer ripped off when he became Satan.
For “Illuminati” today read the Freemasons, Skull and Bones, Counsel on Foreign Relation, the Bilderberger Group, the Trilateral Commission - all real entities with street addresses, exclusive executive meetings, and website masquerades.
Don't roll your eyes. The “illuminated ones” want you to tune out… “They” include men like Pierre Jay. Initiated into the Order of Skull and Bones in 1892, Jay, became the first Chairman of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. A dozen other members of the Federal Reserve are linked to this same dis-Order. [The Secrets of the Federal Reserve)
It is well documented that as a director of the London-affiliated New York banking house, Brown Brothers-Harriman, Prescott Bush funded Hitler's political comeback. But no official account mentions that the Harriman Bank, with its various money-moving fronts, was owned and directed by the Rothschild's, who, as the banking bloodline controlling the Central Bank of England, got their money from the Jesuit's Bank of Rome.
GW's granddad, Prescott Bush joined Skull and Bones in 1917. Two years later, Adolph Hitler joined the freaky German Skull and Bones society, the Brotherhood of Death.
This does not mean that the Vatican gets on the phone and issues interest rate changes to the Bank of England and the Fed. Banking at the top doesn't work like that. Rather, the folks taking the bankers' calls are FX money traders who set the currency valuations that influence interest rates and determine the fate of countries - and home mortgage holders.
The so-called “globalist conspiracy” of Knights, Masons and Bilderberg attendees is really a network of influential industrialists, politicians and media heads who meet regularly in private to "'to clear up differences and misunderstandings" - and persuade invited skeptics to join their new world bankers paradise. They do not occupy some mythical control room pushing buttons that change the players and scenery on the world stage. They don't have to. Bankers and the Vatican follow a much simpler Golden Rule: "Those with the gold make the rules."
The Vatican likes to point out that it's going broke running Vatican City. But Cardinal Edmund Szoka, the Vatican's unofficial finance minister, told Money Week that the Vatican's assets total some $5 billion. Vatican City “has a separate financial statement,” he added.
“But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country,” Baron Manhattan explains. “The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence.” (Vatican Billions)

“the Vatican Bank - Istituto per le Opere di Religione - manages more than $4 billion in assets. It does not reveal its profits or dividends, which are paid directly to the Pope. It enjoys the status of a central bank and has a dealing room adorned with crucifixes and papal portraits where 20 traders work .” (Independent Apr 19/02)
According to Hank's Jesuit Vatican informant, the world's ultimate Vatican bankers “wanted to make sure there was enough confusion, and enough information going all over the place that no one would pay attention to” their current cover-up in the catacombs.
So they fomented the mortgage mess.
“It was never just a U.S. problem. It was a banking problem. Bank to bank,” Hank agreed. “But they typically don't risk holding other banks' lines of credit.”
The German Finance Minister, Peter Steinbruck was the first to break the international banking cartel's taboo of silence. "The managers' arrogance we have witnessed, has ended in disaster,” he told the press.… The fog that surrounds German, British and American banks is beginning to spread around… to the point that some are wondering whether their quarterly accounts are really reporting all the latent risks… Several months have gone by and some managers still don't know how much this crisis is going to cost them."
“Certain German banks have been very exposed to the subprime crisis that has been shaking the financial world since last summer
The problem, Steinbruck went on, is that “the more banks' capital decreases, the less they can lend.” [Le Figaro Dec 5/07)

With banks holding at least $550 billion in admitted mortgage-backed securities and “off balance sheet” debt, “mortgages, car loans, credit card debt (have) ground to a halt.”
The numbers are gigantic and growing. CoreLogic estimates that“What's going on in the markets isn't an irrational panic,” Paul Krugman comments at the New York Times. “It's a wholly rational panic, because there's a lot of bad debt out there, and you don't know how much of that bad debt is held by the guy who wants to borrow your money.”.

“It's like the Dark Ages,” one banker told the Financial Times in what must have sounded like a Knight named Sinatra singing a Vatican aria.

Bloomberg believes that because “foreign investors believe they were hoodwinked by bonds that were deliberately mis-rated to maximize profits” for U.S. banks, “European and Asian investors will avoid most US mortgage-backed securities for years.” Which may explain why $882 billion was “diverted into Chinese and Indian stock markets” in one month alone.

The “problemo” caused by the home mortgage blowout is no longer lack of liquidity, but “a fundamental problem of solvency,” Krugman concurs. “Anyone who expects the Fed or anyone else to come up with a plan that makes this financial crisis just go away will be sorely disappointed.” (New York Times Nov 23/07; New York Times Dec 14/07)
If they have the ability to do that worldwide, and as soon as anything threatens them they knee jerk and entire economies fall. The housing bubble had to be built over decades. And in a week it crashed out. What else has been built like that?”

FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD ABOLITION ACT HR 2755
The Big Solution, of course, is abolish the Federal Reserve. On June 15, 2007, Rep. Ron Paul introduced the Federal Reserve Board Abolition Act HR 2755 "To abolish the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the Federal reserve banks, and repeal the Federal Reserve Act."
As govtrack.us noted on December 9, 2007: "Introduced bills go first to committees that deliberate, investigate, and revise them before they go to general debate. (HR2755 went to the House Committee on Financial Services.) The majority of bills never make it out of committee. Keep in mind that sometimes the text of one bill is incorporated into another bill, and in those cases the original bill, as it would appear here, would seem to be abandoned."

SCHMITZ COULD BE COUNTED ON TO KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT
"Schmitz was appointed to his post by President Bush in 2001 after the Associated Press reported the office
'was caught cheating' and destroying internal documents. His office has broad jurisdiction to investigate all Pentagon contracts, both in Iraq and elsewhere.
HIS PERFORMANCE AT DOD
When Joseph E. Schmitz took over as the Pentagon's inspector general in 2002, the largest watchdog organization in the federal government was under fire for failing to fully investigate a senior official, falsifying internal documents and mistreating whistle-blowers.... Schmitz slowed or blocked investigations of senior Bush administration officials
BLOCKED INVESTIGATION OF EDWARD "PETE" ALDRIDGE AT LOCKHEED
Another case in which Schmitz intervened came when the inspector general's office began examining the jobs received by Pentagon officials who left for the private sector, according to another U.S. official, who also declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the issue. One of those on the list was Edward "Pete" Aldridge, the former Pentagon procurement chief who took a job with defense contractor Lockheed Martin. Schmitz would not sign a subpoena allowing investigators to examine employment documents, the official said.
Instead,before investigators could proceed. A Lockheed Martin spokesman confirmed the company had received a request that the firm "voluntarily provide" information regarding Aldridge. It said it had "promptly and fully" responded to the request....
the official said that Schmitz created a new policy that made it more difficult to get information by subpoena by requiring additional bureaucratic steps. During his tenure, Schmitz also made it harder to initiate an investigation of a political appointee, requiring high-ranking approval
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon's top investigator has resigned amid accusations that he stonewalled inquiries into senior Bush administration officials suspected of wrongdoing.

Defense Department Inspector General Joseph E. Schmitz told staffers this week that he intended to resign as of Sept. 9 to take a job with the parent company of Blackwater
The resignation comes after Sen. Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) sent Schmitz several letters this summer informing him that he was the focus of a congressional inquiry into whether he had blocked two criminal investigations last year.
Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee, accused Schmitz of fabricating an official Pentagon news release, planning an expensive junket to Germany and hiding information from Congress. Schmitz is the senior Pentagon official charged with investigating waste, fraud and abuse.
BLACKWATER maintains the largest private military training facility in the United States.... BLACKWATER's CEO and co-founder is Michigan-based Erik D.

BLACKWATER is far removed from oversight by government inspectors general, Freedom of Information Act requests, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and snooping reporters.
Schmitz will go to work for Prince Group, the Virginia-based parent company of BLACKWATER USA, as chief operating officer and general counsel. Schmitz formally recused himself in June from any cases involving BLACKWATER , a private security company with millions of dollars in contracts in Iraq.

THE SCHMITZ family TREE
JOSEPH EDWARD SCHMITZ is the son of the late JOHN G. SCHMITZ, former California State Senator, Member of the U.S. House of Representatives, and U.S. Presidential candidate (1972). John Schmitz was famous for his right-wing views and occasional racist and homophobic remarks. His public career was ended when it was revealed that he had an affair and fathered two illegitimate children.
John Schmitz's seven legitimate children include former George H.W. Bush White House counsel JOHN P. SCHMITZ, JEROME T. SCHMITZ, Theresa Manion, Elizabeth Crnkovich, Philip Schmitz (who tragically drowned as a baby in the family pool), child rapist Mary Kay Letourneau, and Joseph Edward Schmitz.
We’re going to be investigating this a little more in the next series of posts after this on when we specifically look at Nazi/neo-Nazi players in the current sociopathic/psychopathic puppet-Bush milieu.
Jeb married a Mexican woman. Columba Bush’s sister is married to JOHN P. SCHMITZ, a beneficiary of the fellowship programs subsumed under the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft and the brother of Joseph Schmitz, currently the head of the BLACKWATER security outfit. JOHN P. SCHMITZ has close links to the elder George Bush, the 9/11 milieu...
One of the strangest episodes in Schmitz’s saga concerns a second family he raised by his German mistress. A young boy conceived in that relationship appears to have been sexually mutilated. “But the man who saw conspiracies everywhere, who was an equal opportunity bigot, and who decried America’s moral decrepitude, had, himself, a skeleton in the closet. It came to light in a curious way. An Orange County child abuse case in 1982 concerned a thirteen-month-old infant who was discovered with hair so tightly wound around his penis that the organ had nearly been severed. The baby was placed in protective custody, and the court demanded that the father step forward. It turned out to be none other than John G. Schmitz, now again a state senator, paterfamilias of five children and, two others with his German mistress, once his student at Santa Ana. It marked the end of Schmitz’s political career (although he did attempt to run for Congress once more). The charges against the mother were eventually dropped and the infant restored to her care. But it was never explained what was going on with the hair-wound penis. One historian has suggested that it was a ‘mysterious sex—or probably anti-sex ritual . . . as if a chastity device.’ Schmitz, feisty as ever, remarked, ‘I ought to get the Right to Life man-of-the-year award for this.’”
John Schmitz was the father of the Bush I aide most involved in Iran-Contra, JOHN P. SCHMITZ, who refused to testify before the Walsh Commission ...
JOHN P. SCHMITZ, George H.W. Bush’s former Deputy Counsel during the Elder’s Vice-Presidency and Presidency, will likely be a key player if Americans force Congress to become serious about its 9/11 probe. Some may remember Schmitz from the Iran/contra investigation, when the Office of the Independent Counsel (OIC) reported that each witness interviewed regarding document production complied except for Schmitz, who asserted that his documents were privileged work product.
Schmitz, fluent in German and a Partner in global-law firm Mayer, Brown & Platt, has clients that include BAYER AG (German maker of the antibiotic Cipro which fights Anthrax, about which Larry Klayman and Judicial Watch (JW) will have keen interest. Recently, JW filed suit seeking the Administration’s anthrax documents to ascertain why the White House starting taking heavy doses of Cipro the day of the attacks -- nearly a month before anthrax was even discovered on Capitol Hill, and while postal workers continued to sort mail in contaminated offices -- some dying in the process.
But John Schmitz’s MAYER-BROWNprofile also reveals that he represents ENRON, adding that “we were active in Germany [with ENRON] until the end....It [bankruptcy] surprised me as well as anyone else,” according to
Reuters (1-4-2002). Moreover, MAYER-BROWN also represents DEUTSCHE BANK on a regular basis regarding its electronic commerce activities; and curiously, Schmitz’s law firm maintains an office in Tashkent, Uzbekistan along with ENRON -- if only to make sure oil is well in the Caspian Sea basin.
Even many 9/11 victim families will even come to recognize Mayer-Brown; for conveniently, the firm also happens to represent United Airlines against 9/11 family lawyers Mary Schiavo and Donald Nolan. And given partner JOHN P. SCHMITZ’s close former relationships with the Bush family, Mayer-Brown’s many water coolers may become intriguing conduits when Miss Schiavo and Mr. Nolan begin their respective legal discovery initiatives regarding who will be subpoenaed or deposed and what evidence is or is not revealed.
Michael Feagley, a MAYER-BROWNlead attorney in more than 35 jury and bench trials, and evidentiary hearings, is a recognized expert in witness testimony and evidence. And like 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund Special Master Kenneth Feinberg, Feagley is an also an authority on alternative dispute resolution techniques - the art of bringing parties together to compromise in legal disputes. His law firm biography lists the art of avoidance of and preparation for potential future litigation as an additional key area of expertise.
Mayer-Brown’s website also lists a connection to President Bush’s family, in that one of its partners, JOHN P. SCHMITZ, personally represents and lobbies for both ENRON and BAYER AG, while also sitting on the Trustee Board of BAYER Foundation. Moreover, Schmitz fluent in German, was White House Deputy Counsel when George H. W. Bush was both President and Vice President, making the story’s legs that much more interesting.

And DEUTSCHE BANK is knee-deep in pre-9/11 insider trading stock profits. Enough said.
Ben Veniste, for his part, was very cordial to us, even as we asked him about his recusing himself from participating in writing airline safety recommendations relative to his firm’s representation of United Airlines: “I have already addressed the conflict of interest issue.”
Real answers, however, about how serious Ben Veniste and other Commissioners are regarding their quest for 9/11 truth will come when it is learned which key administration players will testify and whether their subpoenas will be served “by consensus,” -- to which Senator John McCain had referred during his Thursday morning testimony -- or whether subpoenas will center along political party battle-lines. This, while also addressing issues of openness and public sunshine.
MAYER-BROWNis a powerhouse multinational firm, with offices in numerous Western European countries and the United States. Interestingly, its website lists such clients as ENRON Corporation, both of whom maintain offices in the Caspian Sea basin in Tashkent, Uzbekistan - near Afghanistan; German corporation BAYER AG - maker of cipro, the antibiotic used to treat anthrax; and German banking giant, DEUTSCHE BANK, for electronic commerce activities.
According to wide reports, two of the September 11 terrorist hijackers maintained bank accounts at DEUTSCHE BANK, including leader Mohammed ATTA.
“What happened at the nondescript roadside motel outside Oklahoma City was just fleeting encounter during the twisted cross-country odyssey of the terrorists who would carry out the September 11 attacks. Mohammed Atta, alleged leader of the plot, and two companions wanted to rent a room, but couldn’t get the deal they wanted, so they left.”
This same motel was apparently frequented by Mujahid Menepta, an associate of Moussaoui, who visited the motel in the time before the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.and alleged Middle Eastern and/or Iraqi nationals, with whom he may have been conspiring.
This same motel was also reported to have been host to Timothy McVeigh
“One reason for the FBI’s apparent lack of interest might be this motel’s alleged connection to Timothy McVeigh and a group of Iraqis who worked in Oklahoma City. According to the motel owner and other witnesses and investigators interviewed by the Weekly, McVeigh and several of these Iraqis were motel guests in the months preceding the 1995 bombing. Witnesses also claimed they saw several of the Iraqis moving barrels of material around on the bed of a truck. The motel owner said the material smelled of diesel fuel and he had to clean up a spill. Diesel fuel was a key component of the truck bomb that blew up the Federal Building.”
“After the attacks, said the motel owner, he recognized his visitors in photos from television reports. ‘I was really stunned,’ he said. Then he decided to call the FBI hot line. The motel owner said he didn’t hear right back from the FBI. In the interim, he also spoke to a former law-enforcement officer who was investigating reported sightings of Mujahid Abdulquaadir Menepta at the same motel during the mid-1990’s. Menepta, reportedly a friend of Moussaoui’s, was arrested 30 years ago in Colorado for aggravated robbery and served more than three years in prison.”
“After September 11, Menepta publicly defended Moussaoui, calling him a ‘scapegoat.’ The FBI arrested him as a material witness and subsequently charged Menepta with a federal gun violation. He pleaded guilty and in April 2002 was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison. He was never charged with any terrorism-related crime. But during the preliminary hearing on the gun charge, Alcohol, Tobacco and firearms Agent Jeffrey Whitney testified that a confidential source placed Menepta at a meeting of a radical Islamic group in St. Louis where he allegedly threatened to shoot any police officer who entered the mosque. Menepta’s attorney challenged the credibility of this report in court.”
“A former desk clerk at the motel—a different clerk from the one who purportedly dealt with Atta and Moussaoui—told the Weekly that he remembered Menepta because in 1994 and 1995—prior to the Oklahoma City attack—Menepta frequently visited the motel office. There, he bought coffee and talked for hours to this clerk.”
“The clerk and his wife, who both formerly worked at the motel, said they picked Menepta’s picture out of a photo lineup prepared by a law-enforcement officer who had interviewed the motel owner. This officer, who also spoke to the Weekly on condition of anonymity, said that after the motel owner told him about the Moussaoui sighting, he contacted a member of Oklahoma’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, which includes the FBI. The FBI finally acted on the tip.
The motel owner said that on December 19, 2001, he went to FBI offices in Oklahoma City for a formal interview, where he was debriefed by an FBI agent and by Oklahoma City Police Sergeant Jerry Flowers. ‘We talked for several hours, and I told them everything I knew.’ The motel owner said he would have taken a polygraph exam but was not asked to do so. The Weekly’s law-enforcement source corroborates the December 19 interview.
He added that his previous experience with the FBI made him reluctant to contact them about Moussaoui. ‘But I decided it was my duty to tell them what had happened. So I did.’”
“The motel owner said he and his staff reported this information to the FBI in 1995.‘We did have an ATF agent come out and collect the originals of the room registrations for that period, but we never heard back from them. And I never could get the registrations returned.’
On the surface there would seem to be little to unite the Aryan racialists of the neo-Nazi movement with the terrorists of radical Islam. To the neo-Nazis, Muslims are almost all members of "inferior" races; and to the Islamic terrorists, the neo-Nazis are almost without exception either atheists or members of fringe quasi-Christian sects.
But the reality is that there has been close cooperation between Muslim extremists and Fascists ever since the founding of the Nazi movement in the 1920's. For all of their differences, Muslim extremists and Nazis have always been united by a common group of beliefs and goals: hatred of Judaism (and conventional Christianity), hatred of democracy, and a desire for the destruction of Israel and the United States.
A little background is in order. During World War II the rabidly anti-Semitic Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin Al-Husseini, pledged his unequivocal support to Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist movement. The Grand Mufti was put on the Nazi payroll in 1937 after he met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine. In fact, when the Grand Mufti had to flee the Middle East in 1941 after the failure of the pro-Nazi coup in Iraq, he was welcomed to Berlin by Hitler and provided with high-power transmitters in order to broadcast pro-Nazi propaganda to the Middle East.
The Grand Mufti also organized an all- Muslim unit of the SS for Hitler and was instrumental in forming the pro-Nazi Muslim Hanschar brigades in Yugoslavia. After the war and his conviction for war crimes by the Nuremberg Tribunal, the Grand Mufti fled to Egypt where, as part of the ODESSA network of former SS operatives, he maintained close ties to former high-ranking Nazis who were now engaged in gun-running operations to Arab countries fighting the fledgling State of Israel.
One such ex-Nazi gunrunner was Major General Otto Ernst Remer (1912-1997), known as the "Godfather of the neo-Nazi movement." Remer had a major part in thwarting the Generals' Plot against Hitler in July 1944. Hitler rewarded Remer by putting him in charge of his protection detail. In the chaos of the immediate post-war period, Remer escaped de-Nazification and returned to Germany.
In 1949 Remer and his associates founded the Sozialistische Reichspartei in Lower Saxony, but the party was banned in 1952 as a neo-Nazi political organization. Remer then settled in Egypt where he began his close friendship with the Grand Mufti and also became security adviser to Gamal Abdel Nasser.
Remer, along with his associate Alois Bunning (who was Eichmann's assistant in the SS), operated his gunrunning company, the Orient Trading Company, out of Damascus for many years. In the 1980's, when the statute of limitations expired for the crimes he was alleged to have committed, Remer retired and returned to Germany where he became a close adviser to Michael Kuehnen, the most important neo-Nazi leader of the postwar period in Germany.
It should be pointed out that National Socialism had a profound impact on the political philosophies of many radical Islamic political organization, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood (founded in Egypt in 1928), Nasser's Young Egypt movement, the Social Nationalist Party of Syria founded by Anton Sa'ada, and the Ba'ath Party of Iraq. One of the main leaders of the 1941 pro-Nazi coup in Iraq was Khairallah Tulfah, the uncle and guardian of Saddam Hussein. When Saddam failed in his attempt to assassinate the Iraqi leader Abdel Karim Qassim in 1959, he fled to Egypt where he was given protection by Grand Mufti- protégé Nasser and ODESSA-connected former Nazis. The rest, as they say, is history.
Andreas Strassmeir, the alleged mastermind of the OKC bombing and Timothy McVeigh’s alleged superior in the operational aspects of the attack is alleged in a 5/10/1995 FBI memorandum to have sought the purchase of a Boeing 747 from Lufthansa.
“Extremists residing at Elohim City received military-style training from a number of sources. One of the trainers there was Andreas Carl Strassmeir of Germany, a neo-Nazi and the son of Guenter Strassmeir, a chief aide of disgraced former German chancellor Helmut Kohl. The elder Strassmeir is widely regarded as the architect of Kohl’s reunification plan that merged the former East Germany with the Federal Republic in 1991. And Guenter’s father was one of the original members of the Nazi Party in the early 1920’s.”
“Andreas Strassmeir is important to this story because he not only became a close friend and confidant of Timothy McVeigh, but also because he is regarded by many investigators as John Doe #2, the unknown person assisting McVeigh and Terry Nichols at the scene of the Oklahoma City bombing who was seen by a number of eyewitnesses.”
STRASSMEIR TRIES TO BUY 747
“In addition to training various neo-Nazi and militia groups, Strassmeir was involved in a number of very curious activities.; however, the reason for the purchase is not reflected in the documents.’
According to an FBI report dated May 10, 1995, ‘Additional documents reveal that at one time Strassmeir was attempting to purchase a 747 aircraft from Lufthansa
In 1995 it would not have been unreasonable for an FBI investigator to give Strassmeir’s aborted airliner purchase merely passing notice. In light of 9/11, however, it gives one pause and raises the real possibility that 9/11 type attacks were being planned as far back as 1995 by insiders in the neo-Nazi/Islamic terrorist network.
“And there were Americans at the camp as well. Risi learned about one of them and on January 12, 1996, he says, he took a polygraph test and made a statement to the Federal Court in Buenos Aires testifying to everything he knew about this American. The man—whose name also won’t be divulged—is an ex-Special Forces soldier who had been a communications expert in Vietnam and had seen combat there.
He returned home to join the Michigan Militia, then converted to Islam, worked in Jordan, and became associated with another American, who had been investigated by the D.E.A. for activities in Central America.
Now, according to Risi, the Vietnam vet, who speaks Spanish, is in Triple Border with two other American extremists, acting as an instructor at one of the terrorist training camps. He is also responsible for security operations and provided armed guards when top al-Qaeda and Hezbollah associates—in particular, Muganiyah—were in town.”
“According to Risi,. . . According to Risi, Aryan Nations had people in Triple Border as early as 1985, and they were cooperating with Islamic extremists in the United States. (Stephen Jones, the chief defense lawyer for Timothy McVeigh, suspects that convicted Kuwaiti terrorist Ramzi Yousef supplied technical expertise in the 1995 Oklahoma City Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing.”
the man had also been in the United States on September 11 and had provided logistical support to Atta before the attacks.
the WMC was initially headed by the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who, like his friend H. Keith Thompson, stood by the Third Reich until his death in 1974. A few years later, the WMC, then headed by Pakistani Dr. Inamullah Kahn, mailed Holocaust-denial literature to every member of the U.S. Congress and the British Parliament. The WMC’s official mouthpiece, Muslim World, carried the ads for The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and Henry Ford’s The International Jew.
“Another favorite IHR speaker and collaborator was Issah Nakleh of the World Muslim Congress (WMC). Based in Pakistan,
Dr. Khan’s congress also published Freemasonry, a book warning that Jews were using lodge members to extend secret control over religion and society—a paranoid theory that has long been popular among Liberty Lobby supporters and neo-Nazi groups around the world.
Acknowledging their political kinship, WMC secretary-general Khan sent a letter to the Spotlight praising its ‘superb in-depth analysis’ and stating that the paper deserved ‘the thanks of all right-minded people.’
Dr. Khan also served as an advisor to the Saudi Arabian royal family, which lavished funds on the WMC. In addition, the Saudi Arabian government retained the services of American neo-nazi William Grimstead as a Washington lobbyist.
Soon, the World Muslim Congress began working closely with U.S. intelligence and Pakistani military officials, who were covertly supporting the Afghan mujahideen in their fight against the Soviet-installed regime in Kabul. This effort was strongly endorsed by Dr. Khan, who served for many years as the Pakistani representative of the Nazi-infested World Anti-Communist League, which played an important role in the Reagan administration’s ‘secret war’ in the Golden Crescent.
Another possible indication of Nazi/Islamist cooperation concerns Mohammed Atta’s German connections, which appear to have been numerous and significant.
“A year-long MadCowMorningNews investigation has uncovered evidence that atThe names of the seven, all pilots, have not surfaced in any press accounts of Atta’s stay in the U.S., nor has their existence been mentioned or alluded to in official statements.
least seven of Mohamed Atta’s closest associates in Florida during the year leading up to the 9/11 attack were not Arab, but German.
Traveling with Atta, or meeting him around the state, Atta’s German friends appeared to share a relationship with him of long-standing, according to eyewitnesses, dating back to his days in Hamburg. The meetings, in places like key West and Miami, were apparently very serious business; when they returned, said someone who was there, Atta and his German associates ‘always came back glum.’
Only one of the seven is still in the U.S.; five live in Germany or Switzerland. The seventh, with whom Atta reportedly traveled extensively, has a criminal record in Germany, and today lives in Saudi Arabia. The identities of the seven German nationals were pieced together from information gleaned in interviews with Atta’s one-time American girlfriend, corroborated by independent aviation sources in Venice and Naples, FL. ”
“ . . . Strassmeir’s father was once a top aide to German Chancellor Helmut Kohl; Atta’s German friends are all children of the German elite. But before delving further into Atta’s German connections, there were two other related developments in Florida last week. In the first, the former owner of the terror flight school in Venice, FL., Rudi Dekkers, was arrested last week on a single count of felony fraud, and booked into the Collier County jail in Naples, FL.”
Both of the men running the flying schools in Florida that trained the hijackers were Dutch nationals.
Might this have some connection to the Thyssen-Bornemisza link to the Netherlands described in FTR#370 www.spitfirelist.com... ?
“As the MadCowMorningNews has been reporting, suspicious and often illegal activities were commonplace occurrences at Dekkers-owned flight schools at the same time the schools were training a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of Hamburg cadre terrorists. Now the arrest of the controversial Dutch national comes amid indications from authorities that Federal agencies involved in the 9/11 investigation are taking a closer look at Dekker’s business activities in Florida during the past decade, fueling speculation he might become the first non-Arab charged in a wider 9/11 conspiracy than has so-far been revealed. . . .Posing for a new mug shot is the latest in a series of reversals suffered recently by the Venice ‘Magic Dutch Boy,’ so-called because he is
one of two Dutch nationals who owned flight schools at the Venice Airport which each—by apparent freak coincidence—ended up training terrorists to fly. . .”
“Then, too Dekker’s helicopter crashed recently, while he was en route to a showdown meeting with partner Wally Hilliard over control of Huffman Aviation. In another freak coincidence, owner of the second Dutch-owned flight school at the Venice Airport, Arne Kruithof, also suffered a near-fatal aviation mishap last summer when his plane fell from a hundred feet in the air onto the runway of the Venice Airport. It appears as if both would be well-advised to stay away from open windows.”
“The German element arrived in Florida with ‘Wolfgang’ in 1996. Prior to arriving in Naples he was associated with an organization called ‘The Flying Club of Munich.’Wolfgang was instrumental in bringing another of Atta’s German associates to Florida, a pilot named ‘Stephan,’ who we were to learn has done jail time in Germany, was on parole there when he came to the U.S., and recently spent a year in Gundogdu, Turkey.”
‘Wolfgang showed up from Munich in the mid-1990’s and immediately began operating a flight school illegally in ’96,’ stated an aviation source in Naples. ‘He’s half Swiss, half German.’
“While regular German flight students struggle to obtain the necessary visas, Wolfgang and Stephan apparently had inside connections which smoothed their progress. ‘Sometimes it makes me mad that a criminal gets preference,’ stated one German national flight instructor in Naples with obvious bitterness. ‘Wolfgang signed off on Stephan’s books, and Stephan also got in on a fraudulent business investor’s visa.’ ‘Wolfgang was in his thirties,’ says Amanda Keller, who lived with Atta during March and April of 2001. ‘He and Wolfgang were very tight, they went everywhere together. When he came into the picture they were together all the time.’”
ATTA WAS ALWAYS WITH WOLFGANG
“Strangely, Keller also states that Atta always spoke German with Wolfgang, a statement contradicted by the testimony of Rudi Dekkers, who told a Congressional Committee that when he addressed him in German, Atta had merely looked at him strangely . . . Newsweek says its sources say the unnamed country is Saudi Arabia. That may prove to be at least partly correct; still, there are few, if any, Saudis named ‘Wolfgang.’ Newsweek should keep digging.”
