A little help with some research

I'm new, so bear with me. I am researching what I think to be a covered up operation in Sammarah, but I don't have details other than what I've heard second hand from a friend of someone who was on the ground there.

Has anyone heard of Operation Heirloom? My very specious info comes from a source who was 3rd of 2nd ID and relates to some new weapons system and to what sounds like a US ARMY run death squad, but I've hit a dead-end online.

Reportedly sometime early 2007 there was a battle or series of battles in Sammarah where the Army deployed [something new] and my source states that the US casualities were very large.

Here's the rub: everything I've found that's official for 2007 only lists a limited number of either KIA, MIA, or WIA, and the KIA related to IUDs, not exchange of fire. My source is very convincing but not very disclosing when it comes to details. The only thing he's really given me is a number, but I have no idea what it means: 0676955. It's not a phone number and google isn't helping.

Searching for Operation Heirloom only turns up some photography company, but no military information.

Can anyone help?

These must been classified operations by the dod.

Yeah, I was just reading through the "Code Names" thread and found the correllation between the "operation" naming conventions the project name, but it still doesn't tell me any more about what the project actually is.

I've been finding some interesting possible links in the forum here, but nothing that screams "MATCH" to me.

I'm new to this and I'm sure someone on this board can help...I'm suprised at the number of well researched items here.

Samarra Iraq..... Could it have anything to do with the Al-Askari mosque?

For centuries, people from the seven tribes of Samarra have guarded the shrine. These guards are called "gayaameen" in Arabic. According to gayaameen from the Darraji tribe of samarra, a few hours prior to the first bombing that occurred, ICDC troops (Iraqi Civil Defence Corps) accompanied by coalition troops, temporarily relieved the gayaameen of their duty. As a result of the bombings coinciding with the duty relief of the gayaameen just prior to the bombing, skepticism grew as to what level of involvement the ICDC or coalition troops had in the tragic event. Prior to the second bombing, the gayaameen were also relieved, except this time it was done by Internal Ministry officers (AKA: Maghaweer al-dakhiliah) accompanied by coalition troops. The gayaameen this time were instructed to move to the bridge that connects Samarra proper with the Gal'a (explanation needed) and establish a check point there. Soon after, the bombings occurred, destroying the shrine for a second time.

Sounds old to an heirloom. Looking for more....

2007 attack

Main article: 2007 al-Askari Mosque bombing

At around 8 a.m. on 13 June 2007, suspected al-Qaeda operatives destroyed the two remaining 36 m (118 ft)-high golden minarets flanking the dome's ruins. No fatalities were reported. Iraqi police have reported hearing "two nearly simultaneous explosions coming from inside the mosque compound at around 8 a.m."[13] A report from state run Iraqiya Television stated that "local officials said that two mortar rounds were fired at the two minarets."[13]


So now COALITION TROOPS are escorting AL QAEDA OPERATIVES to blow up mosques??? This got weird on me real fast.....

Just a slight theory on this, but you said that a google search of operation heirloom only brought up a photography company.
Well it has been speculated for a long time that military organisations use companys as "fronts" for their activites.
So the number you were give may be an access code or a clue or even a line of html code for you to find within the code of the site using the IE view source.
Just a guess really but you never know.

Put the number into

It comes up with links in genetics biochipping in Helsinki, NOAA, NASA, and which looks like virology research maybe.

Now you can atleast start digging. After that I suggest you start searching, it is a meta search engine. It casts a much broader net than Google.

If I were to go the intuitive route, I would free associate it with heirloom vegitables.

Which of course will be the only nutritious food left on the planet once the GM food stranglehold is established by Monsanto and Codex Alimentarius is in place.

Once all the food on the planet has been contaminated with genes which make it sterilize anyone who eat's it. Only those with Heirloom seeds in vault, and a way to kill every contaminated plant on the planet will be allowed back into the gene pool.

You're thread gave ma an interesting idea, why not take a look at Army, Marine, Navy and Air Force exclusive forums? Sureley somebody there would know.

I am reading about Al Queda in North Carolina Right now, quite interesting.

he Bush administration just gave Communist China 5 Million dollars worth of sensitive U.S. military communication equipment and etc.

1) Shouldn't this be in the research thread?

2) That being said, the number you posted looks like a registration number, or maybe a patent number...did you look for US patents?

posted on Jun, 16 2008 @ 02:54 PM
I found a info on it.

posted on Jun, 16 2008 @ 04:09 PM
that number sounds like a military personnel number...

Operation Heirloom was a covert op of the goverment. There were simulants - bio engineered human 'simulant look alikes' developed to go in and do what normal military ops were unable to do.

Any info you can give us on the source of this information, age, rank etc, and motive for giving you this information?

Googled the number, as I imagine everyone else has, comes up with a patent. What's the patent for?

posted on Sep, 10 2008 @ 08:25 PM
The patent is related to a Linquist request involving new telephone tech, circa 1899. Has to do with changing the way the party line worked.

There are some other patents with those numbers, or near to, but most of those relate to OFC and/or perfluorocarbons. I don't know what those would have to do with a dark op in Iraq.

take 2 ...generally speaking the military goes to great lengths...sometimes laughably to name OPS very obscure. Like if it was a infil mission they would call it OP Goldilocks. Generally speaking they find one instance within the plan and find and obscure reference.

that patent number, if it is in fact a patent number, refers to telephone tech, circa 1899. Filed by Lindquist for advances on a party line, etc, etc.

With some cross referencing and moving the zero to the end, it turns the patents from the telephone to OFC and perfluorocarbons i.e. super-oxygenated liquid for substituitional breathing, etc. Don't know what OFC would have to do with a dark op in Iraq though.
