New York Times - CIA Cash Ended Up in Al-Qaeda Coffers

C.I.A. Cash Ended Up in Coffers of Al Qaeda By MATTHEW ROSENBERGMARCH 14, 2015 President Ashraf Ghani, center, with former President Hamid Karzai, left, whose government received monthly C.I.A. payments. Credit Omar Sobhani/Reuters WASHINGTON — In the spring of 2010, Afghan officials struck a deal to free an Afghan diplomat held hostage by Al Qaeda. But the price was steep — $5 million — and senior security officials were scrambling to come up with the money. They first turned to a secret fund that the Central Intelligence Agency bankrolled with monthly cash deliveries to the presidential palace in Kabul, according to several Afghan officials involved in the episode. The Afghan government, they said, had already squirreled away about $1 million from that fund. Within weeks, that money and $4 million more provided from other countries was handed over to Al Qaeda, replenishing its coffers after a relentless C.I.A. campaign of drone strikes in Pakistan had decimated the militant network’s upper ranks. Off-the-books cash delivered directly to President Karzai’s office shows payments on a vast scale. Afghan Leader Confirms Cash Deliveries by C.I.A.APRIL 29, 2013 The Afghan leader Hamid Karzai told reporters Saturday that money delivered by the C.I.A. was “an easy source of petty cash.” Karzai Said He Was Assured of Cash Deliveries by C.I.A.MAY 4, 2013 “God blessed us with a good amount of money this month,” Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, the group’s general manager, wrote in a letter to Osama bin Laden in June 2010, noting that the cash would be used for weapons and other operational needs. Abdul Khaliq Farahi, who was kidnapped by Al Qaeda in 2008. Credit Michael Kamber for The New York Times Bin Laden urged caution, fearing the Americans knew about the payment and had laced the cash with radiation or poison, or were tracking it. “There is a possibility — not a very strong one — that the Americans are aware of the money delivery,” he wrote back, “and that they accepted the arrangement of the payment on the basis that the money will be moving under air surveillance.” The C.I.A.’s contribution to Qaeda’s bottom line, though, was no well-laid trap. It was just another in a long list of examples of how the United States, largely because of poor oversight and loose financial controls, has sometimes inadvertently financed the very militants it is fighting. While refusing to pay ransoms for Americans kidnapped by Al Qaeda, the Taliban or, more recently, the Islamic State, the United States has spent hundreds of billions of dollars over the last decade at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, some of which has been siphoned off to enemy fighters. The letters about the 2010 ransom were included in correspondence between Bin Laden and Mr. Rahman that was submitted as evidence by federal prosecutors at the Brooklyn trial of Abid Naseer, a Pakistani Qaeda operative who was convicted this month of supporting terrorism and conspiring to bomb a British shopping center. The letters were unearthed from the cache of computers and documents seized by Navy SEALs during the 2011 raid in which Bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and had been classified until introduced as evidence at the trial. Details of the C.I.A.’s previously unreported contribution to the ransom demanded by Al Qaeda were drawn from the letters and from interviews with Afghan and Western officials speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. The C.I.A. declined to comment. The diplomat freed in exchange for the cash, Abdul Khaliq Farahi, was serving as the Afghan consul general in Peshawar, Pakistan, when he was kidnapped in September 2008 as he drove to work. He had been weeks away from taking up his new job as Afghanistan’s ambassador to Pakistan. Afghan and Pakistani insurgents had grabbed Mr. Farahi, but within days they turned him over to Qaeda members. He was held for more than two years. The Afghan government had no direct contact with Al Qaeda, stymieing negotiations until the Haqqani network, an Afghan insurgent faction with close ties to Al Qaeda, stepped in to mediate. Qaeda leaders wanted some captive militants released, and from the letters it appeared that they calibrated their offer, asking only for men held by Afghan authorities, not those imprisoned by the Americans, who would refuse the demand as a matter of policy. But the Afghans refused to release any prisoners, “so we decided to proceed with a financial exchange,” Mr. Rahman wrote in the June 2010 letter. “The amount we agreed on in the deal was $5 million.” A 2009 surveillance video image of Abid Naseer, right, who was convicted this month in a bombing plot. Credit U.S. Attorney's Office, via Associated Press The first $2 million was delivered shortly before that letter was written. In it, Mr. Rahman asked Bin Laden if he needed money, and said “we have also designated a fair amount to strengthen the organization militarily by stockpiling good weapons.” (The Qaeda leaders named in the letters were identified by aliases. Bin Laden, for instance, signed his letters Zamray; Mr. Rahman, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan in August 2011, went by the alias Mahmud.) The cash would also be used to aid the families of Qaeda fighters held prisoner in Afghanistan, and some was given to Ayman al-Zawahri, who would succeed Bin Laden as the Qaeda leader and was identified in the letters under the alias Abu-Muhammad, Mr. Rahman said. Other militant groups had already heard about the ransom payment and had their hands out, Mr. Rahman reported. “As you know, you cannot control the news,” he wrote. “They are asking us to give them money, may God help us.” Recent Comments Lawrence Clarke Yesterday Please explain to the parents of James Foley why it is OK to give away millions of dollars to various and sundry individuals and groups.... jb Yesterday If you have read Ahmed Rashid's DESCENT into CHAOS, you will learn that the CIA was doing this in the early 2000's. An interesting question... fuller schmidt Yesterday We have money to waste on Afghanistan crooks instead of rebuilding our aging bridges. But Bin Laden was clearly worried that the payout was an American ruse intended to reveal the locations of senior Qaeda leaders. “It seems a bit strange somewhat because in a country like Afghanistan, usually they would not pay this kind of money to free one of their men,” he wrote. “Is any of his relatives a big official?” he continued, referring to Mr. Farahi, the diplomat. It was a prescient question: Mr. Farahi was the son-in-law of a man who had served as a mentor to then-President Hamid Karzai. Advocating caution, Bin Laden advised Mr. Rahman to change the money into a different currency at one bank, and then go to another and exchange the money again into whatever currency was preferred. “The reason for doing that is to be on the safe side in case harmful substances or radiation is put on paper money,” Bin Laden wrote. Neither of the two men appeared to have known where the money actually came from. Aside from the C.I.A. money, Afghan officials said that Pakistan contributed nearly half the ransom in an effort to end what it viewed as a disruptive sideshow in its relations with Afghanistan. The remainder came from Iran and Persian Gulf states, which had also contributed to the Afghan president’s secret fund. In a letter dated Nov. 23, 2010, Mr. Rahman reported to Bin Laden that the remaining $3 million had been received and that Mr. Farahi had been released. The C.I.A., meanwhile, continued dropping off bags of cash — ranging each time from a few hundred thousand dollars to more than $1 million — at the presidential palace every month until last year, when Mr. Karzai stepped down. The money was used to buy the loyalty of warlords, legislators and other prominent — and potentially troublesome — Afghans, helping the palace finance a vast patronage network that secured Mr. Karzai’s power base. It was also used to cover expenses that needed to be kept off the books, such as clandestine diplomatic trips, and for more mundane costs, including rent payments for the guesthouses where some senior officials lived. The cash flow has slowed since a new president, Ashraf Ghani, assumed office in September, Afghan officials said, refusing to elaborate. But they added that cash was still coming in, and that it was not clear how robust any current American constraints on it are. “It’s cash,” said a former Afghan security official. “Once it’s at the palace, they can’t do a thing about how it gets spent.” A version of this article appears in print on March 15, 2015, on page A1 of the New York edition with the headline: Cash From C.I.A. Ends Up as Part of Qaeda Funds. Order Reprints| Today's Paper|Subscribe

x—x—x—x

Myths thrive on worlds of their own creation, where beliefs can persist in the face of occurrences that seem to dispel them. – Jason Sokol, There Goes My Everything, White Southerners in the Age of Civil Rights, p. 63.

Imagine living in a country so successful that it accounts for about half of the world’s production of wealth and well-being on an annual basis, where the average citizen enjoys three times the living standard of countries in Western Europe, which in turn enjoy three times the standard of living of the Soviet Bloc countries, whose soldiers, still fairly fresh from defeating cruel totalitarian regimes and their deluded followers, are pictured giving candy to the children of defeated foes turned into friends in occupied former enemy countries, and where brotherhood and honest, peaceful intentions are lauded and universally believed in.

That was the image we were given of our country, the U.S., over and over and over throughout the 1950s. And most foreigners were said to cherish that winsome propaganda image as well. Such was (and for many, still is) their image of America. – home of the can-do-anything-always-good-guys (and gals). But, while such as they/we were safe and happy in their/our picture-perfect suburbs, in small towns, and on farms, they/we were not quite immune to crazed lone gunmen and the like. And not immune to the world’s bad guys, Communists and an inscrutable rabble overseas who were duped by them, and now their designated successors, who hate us and want to destroy us for our freedom – always necessitating new gigantic weapons systems, unceasing vigilance, and fully-justified preemption with sometimes nattering and ungrateful allies which some persist in calling aggression.

You don’t give up that kind of self-congratulatory world view just because there are some alleged problems with something that can’t begin to compete with the power and good vibes of the overall pervading narrative. Because we’ve still got the biggest economy, freest institutions, the strongest military, the best food, sports, music, movies, religion, technology, medicine, and clearest view of everything in the world – except when we don’t!

So, do you think most Americans would rather watch another John Wayne movie and enjoy a good American beer, or sit through a science lesson? Three guesses. People already know that there are a lot of contradictions and exceptions, to everything! If the gods that run this country… er, world did something wrong, or knew something we ourselves didn’t, then, hey! Nobody’s perfect! “I wouldn’t doubt that what you say may be true, but… well… life goes on, doesn’t it?”

Have you noticed that we don’t get outright denials very much anymore when we confront people with facts about 9/11, but more like shrugs and polite coughs and inattention? Well, that’s the new form of denial – denial that things could be any different, or that something that happened on one day out of the last 4,931 would have any lasting significance now.

Americans know that the world is closing in on them – just as you know it on a miraculously warm Indian Summer day in late November. There’s global warming now breathing down our neck, a perpetual dearth of money to do what we’d like to be able to do, violence and evil hatred coming ever closer to our own doorstep, Internet predators and lawlessness, war mongering and corruption at all levels, government lying, corporate lying, legislation and pronouncements that don’t make any sense, tainted food and drugs, polluted water and air, pipeline promises and prophetic leaks, psycho kids, unrepentant racism and rampant incivility, the slow, painful realization that Israel has made a stooge out of us. “And you want to talk to me about something you or I can’t do anything about because it happened exactly 4,931 days ago? I don’t think so, pal.”

There’s your American.

“You’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists.” That’s more like where we’re at collectively – and even the powers-that-be are having trouble rallying support on that basis for one more go these days.

As for the perpetrators – 9/11 isn’t seen as a one-off, a single bad deed they can fess up to. They cover up everything; it’s their work, something they themselves might have to look up now, and discover that it happened 4,931 days ago and struggle to recall the few unconnected details that each of them may once have known. No big deal, to be sure.

It’s almost all down the memory hole. And what could possibly get Americans really interested in it now? If a way was discovered to actually get the bastards, then, everybody would get on board! That’s what Americans are still waiting for. That’s our DNA.

Press TV - Mainstream Journalists Expose 9/11 Hoax

Mainstream journalists expose 9/11 hoax Home Featured Viewpoints Sat Oct 19, 2013 10:27AM The aftermath of the 9/11 attack The aftermath of the 9/11 attack Several leading American mainstream journalists say that the US government is lying about 9/11 and the so-called war on terror. Unfortunately, media owners and editors won't let them report their findings. Recently, Seymour Hersh, America's top mainstream investigative reporter, broke the news that the US government's claim to have killed Osama Bin Laden on May 2nd, 2011 is “a big lie. There is not one word of truth in it.” Hersh went on to harshly criticize his long-time employer, the New York Times, and other big media outlets: “We lie about everything, lying has become the staple.” He said all big US media outlets should be shut down for lying to the American people. Other mainstream journalists agree that the US government’s story of Osama Bin Laden and 9/11 is a big lie. Sherwood Ross, an award-winning journalist who has worked for the City News Bureau of Chicago, the Chicago Daily News, and for Reuters and other wire services, told me in a recent radio interview: “It's very doubtful that Muslims were behind 9/11. Think about this for one minute: That President Bush's family had done business with the family of the man who allegedly made the terrorist attack, Osama Bin Laden. The Bin Laden family was actually on the board of Bush's oil company. How is it possible that of all the billions of families in the world, the one family that makes the attack on America has done business with the President of America. That sounds more like a favor than anything else. I don't think 9/11 was an Arab conspiracy or a Muslim conspiracy. I think it's an American conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States and install what is becoming a police state, and also to advance the imperial ambitions of the United States, to swindle the Middle East out of their energy resources.” Ross explained that American journalists are no longer free to expose even the most outrageous official falsehoods and fabrications: “You don't see any serious questioning by the mainstream media. I thought one of the tip-offs that it was a put-up job was when a cameraman from a little weekly in Pennsylvania went to the site where this airliner had supposedly crashed (on 9/11). And he said, 'I didn't see any airliner. I saw a hole in the ground. I didn't see any bodies. I didn't see any luggage.' All right, maybe that guy just made this up. But I don't think so. I think he was just doing his job. And then at the Pentagon, you had the claim that airliner hit it. But again, there was no wreckage. Reporters who worked in the Press Room at the Pentagon went out there on the lawn, and they couldn't see any airliner. So, over and over again, you have manufactured lies that the press largely is not reporting.” I asked Ross whether he is allowed to express such views in his articles for the Miami Herald, the Chicago Daily News, or the wire services. He answered: “Absolutely not. When I used to write for Reuters, covering workplace issues, for ten years, my columns were picked up from the New York Times to the L.A. Times. But if you write about 'why did 7 World Trade Center collapse when it wasn't hit by an airplane,' nobody will pick it up. So, now my columns are used on the Internet by bloggers, and they're used by Middle East wire services. I get phone calls from Press TV, and you can read my interviews there. But you won't see me quoted by the Associated Press.” Another leading American journalist, Paul Craig Roberts, has also been banned from US mainstream media for telling the truth about 9/11. Dr. Roberts served as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, won the French Legion of Honor and other awards for his contributions to economics, and has been a regular columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Business Week, and other mainstream publications. But since he spoke out about the controlled demolitions of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on 9/11, Paul Craig Roberts has been put on the mainstream media's no-publish list. In a recent interview on my radio show, Dr. Roberts explained why the US mainstream media, as Seymour Hersh said, lies about everything: “One of the worst things that ever happened (to America) was when President Clinton allowed five companies to concentrate the American media. That destroyed its independence. And ever since Clinton permitted that, which was totally against all American tradition, and totally against the antitrust law ... but in the United States, as we've seen, law doesn't mean anything anymore. The minute these five conglomerates concentrated the media, the independence of the media disappeared. It's no longer run by journalists, it's run by corporate advertising executives. The value of these media conglomerates resides in their federal broadcast licenses. And so they can't dare offend the government. Their licenses may not get renewed, and the entire multi-billion-dollar value of the companies would disappear. So, the so-called mainstream media is no longer the media. It doesn't tell you anything. It's a propaganda ministry - the Ministry of Propaganda. Gerald Celente calls them 'presstitutes.'” Rather than writing for the mainstream media, Paul Craig Roberts is now exposing the fake killing of Osama Bin Laden and deconstructing the 9/11 false-flag operation for an independent outlet called the Institute for Political Economy. In a recent article published on the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Dr. Roberts wrote: “The neoconservatives who advocate America’s hegemony over the world called for 'a new Pearl Harbor' that would allow them to launch wars of conquest ... No evidence exists that supports the government’s 9/11 story ... On this 12th anniversary of a false-flag event, it is unnecessary for me to report the voluminous evidence that conclusively proves that the official story is a lie. You can read it for yourself. It is available online. You can read what the architects and engineers (for 9/11 truth) have to say. You can read the scientists’ reports. You can hear from the first responders who were in the WTC towers. You can read the pilots who say that the maneuvers associated with the airliner that allegedly hit the Pentagon are beyond their skills and most certainly were not performed by inexperienced pilots. You can read David Griffin’s many books. You can watch the film produced by Richard Gage and Architects & Engineers for 9/11 truth. You can read the 9/11 Toronto Report, International Hearings on 9/11.” But don't bother reading the mainstream media. As Seymour Hersh, Sherwood Ross, Paul Craig Roberts, and a rapidly growing number of ordinary Americans realize, the mainstream media's motto is now: “We lie about everything. Lying has become the staple.” The government’s not demanding an investigation into an event that is the greatest embarrassment to a “superpower” in world history is a complete give-away that 9/11 was a false-flag event.

Gary Kohls - Dr. Niels Harrit's Libel Suit Deserves Media Coverage

This Danish Trial needs mainstream media coverage: Dr. Neils Harrit SUES DANISH NEWSPAPER for libel over the science of the controlled demolitions on 9/11//01 Gary Kohls to Editor, International, New, NYTimes, Scientific, Toronta, editor, New, New, New, Newsweek PeaceFriends: Despite some good investigative journalism on Day One - trying to reveal the truth about the events of 9/11/01, the vast majority of the editors and publishers of the mainstream media (you know who you are) have shamefully ignored the real, unbiased scientific evidence that would prove beyond a shadow of a doubt (in any fair court of law that allowed all the evidence to be brought forward) that the events of 9/11/01 were not as we were repeatedly told. In fact the official story is provably false (that two planes demolished and brought down – in controlled demolition fashion and at free-fall speed - three massively reinforced skyscrapers into their own footprints, leaving behind only fine powder (of towers 1 and 2). Now, finally, in two weeks, there will be an upper court trial in Denmark that will present the facts, at the risk of embarrassing most of the powers-that-be all over the world. The truth is already out and those powers-that-be that have been behind the cover-up are already massively distrusted and derided because of their support of the impossible and unscientific official story. Many scholars, scientists, pilots, chemists, physicists, theologians, etc who have studied the facts regard these powers-that-be as laughingstocks. It is past time for them to come clean and admit that they were either bamboozled or complicit in the cover-up of the crime of the century. Sadly, it is expected that this public trial will be black-listed/boycotted by the mainstream press, similar to 1) what occurred with the 1999 Memphis trial that exonerated James Earl Ray of the assassination of Martin Luther King (read about it at: http://dissidentvoice.org/2008/04/who-killed-martin-luther-king/) and 2) the Winter Soldier black-listed media events on January 31, 1971 – February 2, 1971, and March 2008, where veterans of the Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan Wars gave testimony about the US war crimes and atrocities that they were part of. First read the following report from Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth at: http://www.ae911truth.org/news/201-news-media-events-harrit-libel-suit.html Then read this nice summation from Joan Malerich: “9-11 is the FALSE FLAG event that galvanized the ignorant American people into demanding war to "protect" them and "their country" from the alleged "foreign terrorists." Anyone who bothers to open his/her eyes and look at the way the buildings came down--buildings 1, 2 and especially 7, which was never hit by anything (not even a rock) but still came down in free fall speed--can not logically deny that explosives were used. “I strongly encourage ALL people of conscience to at the very least watch the DVDs: 1. 9-11: Explosive Evidence --Experts Speak Out ------ can be watched free at http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/911-explosive-evidence-experts-speak-out/ NOTE, if you have trouble with the documentary stopping, wait awhile and then keep hitting the start button or the line where the time shows. 2. The New Pearl Harbor CAN BE WATCHED FREE AT http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/september-11-new-pearl-harbor/ NOTE: After the first 1 hour and 50 minutes completes, WAIT and the SECOND PART (DVD) will play. THEN, the THIRD PART plays. All 5 hours will play. If you don't want to watch it all in one setting: When you go back to continue watching, just scroll to the end of the the first DVD or end of the time on the line and wait for the second one to start. Do any people reading this e-mail think about the future of their children? I imagine so. Well, the children of today will have no future worth living if the parents of today do not gather the courage to open their eyes and search for the truth and reality of the powers that be, who have formed the ... the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) If one cannot even watch these DOCUMENTARIES, then I am afraid "one" is simply the reason we continue to have wars and kill and maim human beings, including children, and totally destroy countries (except the natural resources, which are preserved for the world elite to steal). ONE EXCERPT FROM ARTICLE BELOW---PLEASE READ THE SHORT PIECE BELOW RE DR. HARRIT AND HIS LAW SUIT IN THE UPPER COURTS: Dr. Harrit will also call two witnesses. One, Jan Utzon, is a world-renowned architect and AE911Truth petition signer who testified previously. The other, Dr. Per Hedegård, is a physics professor from the University of Copenhagan’s Niels Bohr Institute. His statement to a newspaper in 2010 dismissing Dr. Harrit was the only evidence used by Villemoes at trial. Today, Dr. Hedegård has completely reversed his position and insists on testifying in support of Dr. Harrit! ================================================================================================ February 28, 2015 View this email in your browser Niels Harrit Sues Danish Newspaper for Libel Will Present Video of WTC 7 in Court Just $3,000 More Needed to Cover His Legal Fees! Dear Friends, Two days ago, we announced that Dr. Niels Harrit, the distinguished co-author of the landmark nano-thermite paper, will be appearing in Danish High Court two weeks from now to bring an appeal in his libel suit against the Danish newspaper Weekendavisen. Already, we’ve raised $12,000 of the $15,000 needed to cover his legal fees. Please read on – and, if you can, help us reach our goal by the end of this weekend. To those who’ve already donated, we thank you for your incredible support. We’re almost there! It all started back in December 2012 with an article titled “Madness in the Royal Library.” In it, Weekendavisen writer Søren K. Villemoes referred to Dr. Harrit and his fellow 9/11 activists as “crackpots,” while also comparing them to creationists and Holocaust deniers. “. . . Is the library soon going to open its doors to an exhibition showing us 'alternative' theories about evolution? . . . Why not just invite in Niels Harrit and the other crackpots from the 9/11 skeptics movement while we are at it? What about the holocaust denial movement?” Søren K. Villemoes, Weekendavisen, December 7, 2012 For Dr. Harrit, a scientist who taught chemistry for 40 years at the University of Copenhagan, this amounted to an allegation of scientific misconduct and a baseless attempt to damage his hard-earned reputation. So he decided to seek recourse under Denmark’s strong libel law — and give himself the opportunity to prove in a court of law the scientific legitimacy of his 9/11 research. Now Dr. Harrit Needs Our Help The lower City Court ruled against Dr. Harrit in 2013, basing its decision on politics rather than the law. Dr. Harrit, of course, appealed. This time around, he’ll be allowed to submit more evidence, and he is now receiving assistance from attorney Mads Krøger Pramming, chairman of the Danish whistleblower organization Veron. Although Mr. Pramming is providing his services at a greatly reduced rate, he still needs to be compensated for his indispensible assistance to Dr. Harrit. And so we are asking you to make a modest donation to Niels Harrit’s legal fund, and help us raise $15,000 by the end of this weekend! Support Niels Harrit NOW Of course, this is about much more than undoing baseless insults. It’s an opportunity for a leader in the 9/11 Truth Movement to show in a court of law that the science behind controlled demolition is not just legitimate, but overwhelming. Moreover, because Dr. Harrit has been a national figure ever since his 2009 appearance on TV2NEWS, the case is likely to be widely covered in the Danish media — especially if he wins! What the Case Comes Down To Under Danish libel law, Villemoes has the burden of demonstrating a factual basis for his claim. As a journalist, he must also demonstrate that his reporting meets the standards of good journalism. At the first trial, he did neither. Still, the judge egregiously ruled in his favor. In the High Court, Villemoes will have a much harder time, because Dr. Harrit is being allowed to submit more evidence — namely, the video of WTC 7’s destruction, as well as an actual sample of the WTC dust, which Dr. Harrit will use to demonstrate the dust’s authenticity, and therefore his good scientific conduct. Dr. Harrit will also call two witnesses. One, Jan Utzon, is a world-renowned architect and AE911Truth petition signer who testified previously. The other, Dr. Per Hedegård, is a physics professor from the University of Copenhagan’s Niels Bohr Institute. His statement to a newspaper in 2010 dismissing Dr. Harrit was the only evidence used by Villemoes at trial. Today, Dr. Hedegård has completely reversed his position and insists on testifying in support of Dr. Harrit! Thanks to Dr. Harrit’s relentless pursuit of the truth, we now have an incredible opportunity to achieve some symbolic justice for all 9/11 researchers and activists. You can learn more about the case by reading our recently published article. We thank you for helping us support Niels Harrit. Sincerely yours, Richard Gage, AIA and the AE911Truth Team
