Les Jameson - Pressure Building in Congress to Declassify 9/11 Evidence

Pressure building in Congress to declassify 9/11 evidence! There have been several exciting developments over the last year and a half lifting the 9/11 truth message into mainstream news coverage and broad public awareness. We had the campaign, a billboard in Times Square about the inexplicable collapse of WTC7, CNN coverage of the alternative 9/11 Museum outreach effort, Richard Gage on C-SPAN, the debut of "Anatomy of a Great Deception", and a huge video billboard of the collapse of WTC7 also in Times Square. Now we turn our attention to a development in Congress rooted in 2 vital and intriguing aspects of 9/11 - the geo-politics and the cover-up. Since the 9/11 attacks there have been isolated efforts by people within the alternative research community to lobby members of Congress to carry out a full, fact-based, no-holds-barred investigation. There have been events at the National Press Club, visits to representatives offices, literature distributed to many elected officials, and more. Over the past year a new opportunity has been emerging which holds great promise. December 2, 2013, House Resolution 428 was introduced by Walter Jones, (R-NC) and Stephen Lynch (D-MA) calling for the release of the 28 pages which were redacted, actually excised, from the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001. Walter Jones, along with several supporting Congressmen and 9/11 family members held a press conference in Washington, DC on Sept. 9, 2014. Currently there are 20 co-sponsors to the legislation and growing support by 9/11 families. They’ve reported that after reading the 28 pages they were forced to completely rethink what they thought they knew about 9/11. Although by law they cannot reveal the full contents, they have informed us that it contains information on the Saudi funding sources, questions about “other governments”, and certain “U.S. agencies”. Even Tom Kean and Lee Hamilton, co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission, support the release of the 28 pages. Note that their release has the potential to have a significant impact on revealing the truth behind the current violence in Iraq and Syria. This evidence has the potential to cause all to question the premise for the entire "global war on terror". In a time of “endless war” and growing awareness in a broken legal justice system, the relevance couldn't be greater. For a bit more background, the Joint Inquiry report dates back to 2002. Shortly after the release, a group of 46 senators wrote to President Bush to declassify and release the pages. Former Sen. Robert Graham (D-FL) who chaired the committee has continued demanding its release ever since, including a FOIA request to the Obama administration. Now we have HR 428 to carry on the effort. Hence, we have a serious call to action. We need to pressure our legislators to (1) read the 28 pages, (2) co-sponsor the resolution, and (3) promise to vote in favor of its passage. This resolution will be re-introduced in January, to be followed by an event at the National Press Club. Furthermore, a FOIA request has produced 86,000 pages of FBI documents which are believed to contain even more information that contradicts the official 9/11 narrative. Now is the time to prepare for ongoing political action to work towards passage of the resolution. Now with the release of the Senate's report on torture policies, and Dick Cheney, et al, using 9/11 to justify torture, the relevance of HR 428's role in undermining the official narrative has grown a hundred fold. With the UN and a German court now calling for prosecution for war crimes, there's just no telling where things will lead. Millions of us have spent years studying issues of deep politics, alternative finance, new energy technologies, and a wide spectrum of civil rights and social justice issues. Please take an hour to inform yourself about HR 428. A comprehensive overview of this issue with simple, detailed steps to take is now online. Please do whatever you can to take this viral through your social, personal, and organizational networks. If you would like to help build a national network for truth and accountability for 9/11, please contact us. Go to today. By Les Jamieson Dec. 19, 2014

Why Is 9/11 Such a Big Deal, Anyway?

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization


First, we can take heart that the world (at least, as represented by most of the media, scores of high elected officials, and most of the rest of the world) finally turned the last, crucial thirty degree click with vehemence last week against the neocons, identified and reviled in this country all by that loathesome name as an increasingly-dreaded disease that infested like gobs of poison-haired worms the innards of at least the prior criminal presidency and just maybe even this one. And in doing so, the on-screen loathers stopped just one last medium click short of condemning them and their reviled worm-masters for manufacturing 9/11 itself. Think of it!

True, 9/11 still remained and remains officially off-limits to decent public dissection and real discussion. Yet, reasoned condemnation of other forms of state-directed violence last week came within a whimper of a shadow of admitting flat-out state culpability for evil per se, the only remaining tissue of protection for the living, still fire-breathing perps being their mutual assured destruction if any of them were really to rat. They’ve got it set so the weight of the world would come down full-bore on the truth-telling rats.

In other words, one knowing insider pointing to others would simultaneously and most prominently be figuratively pointing three at himself. Or something very close to that. And thus, we heard last week the outed very authors of torture all squeal in horror their resurrection down the line of the universally rejected defense plea of Nuremberg, with some denying in effect that torture itself might even exist. An increasingly revealing fig leaf that. And next time around, the dominos of 9/11 participation, inside knowledge, and indeed, guilt itself may very well begin to tumble forth in terror of the light. One can only hope.

But why, people ask, do you continue to beat the long-broken drum of 9/11 still today, when there’s an ISIS, ISIL, an Israeli nuclear threat and intimidation to grasp and condemn? When there’s the building war of “free world” titans against Putin, Iran, Syria, and again against both Afghanistan and Iraq – most tantamount to a world war against everybody now – for you to contemplate and scream mostly silently to a frightfully deaf and dumb world about? When there’s a false-flag a week somewhere, everywhere plus economic oppression and crazy kangaroo justice – take your pick – to decry and bewail besides and instead? Why 9/11?

The answer is partly because 9/11 is a creaking hinge, the springboard of our recent dismal present and past, in countless ways the catalyst and breeding ground of all the rest of what slays us more daily, exposing even now like a big, hellish Christmas tree of brightly-colored, barely-camouflaged unblinking evidence of culpability on the part of the forces, agencies, and the very individuals behind most of the other poisons and lesions afflicting our collective body-politic and body-period ever since. The god-awful things we inescapably hear and cringe about several times each and every day in the all-day story-time that now masquerades as “the news” are most all the spawn of 9/11, indirect or direct. Indeed, most of what we hate to hear wouldn’t itself be there, foreshadowing our bravely-maintained private attempts at life, but for 9/11. From which lots of us, most naturally, withdraw.

But, it isn’t that so many Americans and others can’t figure all that out, not really; it’s just that all of it has settled in as so unsettling in implications and content that most would simply rather not go there. “Enough bad news on my own today, frankly, thank you kindly. Dismal history is just not my subject. In fact, I can’t even quite see the sun. But I’ll keep my fingers crossed – which will do just about as much good as exploding over it all could.”

If you were looking for a cheerier piece today, just go back and re-read the beginning.

9/11 As An American Issue

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization


9/11 is the greatest woulda-coulda-shoulda been an issue of our current century – with the possible exception of climate change. But it’s become and remained a real, live issue for only a small self-referencing and outcast minority of us who are self-deluded to proclaim it so, simply because we get it, and consequently wish very fervently that so did a multitude of others.

But most people we try to talk to about it either never had the slightest inkling that what happened on 9/11/01 has ever been in dispute at all, or don’t care one bit more than if we were talking about the origins of the War of 1812, Shirley Temple’s Storybook, or Jenkins’s Ear. How can that possibly be? we ask. Why is it that so few get it or understand why understanding it factually is such a big deal for our future or the recovery of our late, lamented civilization yet today?

The almost sole answer, I believe, lies in what I’ll call the Anti-Conspiracy View.

That conspiracies occur and exist is beyond question. While every instance suspected of being the result of a conspiracy actually is, is seriously doubtful, perhaps the largest conspiracy in U.S. history, although not in dispute, is largely forgotten now. The gargantuan Manhattan Project of the 1940s to produce the atomic bomb is said to have been known in concept to some 100,000 insiders (notably not including then-Vice President Truman), none of whom leaked its existence to the general public.

But, more recently, Americans have been conditioned to disbelieve – indeed, not to even consider, as confused-minded and unpatriotic – all talk of conspiracies. Never question. Believe the soap opera daily melodrama that is the seamless, sanitized, and sanctified version of... everything.

This choreographed “theory of everything” that virtually everyone more-or-less buys into predictably concludes always that the Americans are the wise, all-knowing good guys of the world invariably well-meaning and fair-dealing, sensible and always right. And those abroad or at home who dare to question that conclusion or the imperatives of the U.S. continuing government and its close allies, as portrayed benignly, can eat dirt, pick shrapnel, or be food for worms. That’s their stark choice in defiance, because those who deem to doubt the gospel beamed by the controlled media and through the State Department are by definition wrong and usually evil, it is implied or said, and must be brought violently or by bribes or by intimidation into line.

The best current example showing that the Anti-Conspiracy View dominates American “thinking” may be, uncharacteristically, the case of the multiple allegations that comedian Bill Cosby drugged and raped at least thirteen young women he lusted for some years ago. The first question I thought of when I heard of these allegations is whether it’s even remotely possible that thirteen separate alleged victims could all be lying about such a thing. I presumed that to be distinctly unlikely – unless someone was paying them all a substantial amount of money, or introducing some other equally-powerful incentive for them all to lie.

But then, how likely could it be that thirteen otherwise random women, apparently without a single exception to blow the whistle on the conspiracy, would all accuse Bill Cosby of the same thing if it were not true? And my answer, in general, was that it would almost have to be true, because certainly, under ordinary circumstances, their inevitably dissimilar dispositions and degrees of ethical grounding could not be predicted well enough to insure that they all could be safely bought by the perpetrators of a conspiracy.

But then, I posed a key question familiar to questioners of 9/11: cui bono – who would seek to benefit from destroying this particular man’s sterling reputation? Does he, in fact, have enemies?

And here my suspicions were aroused. Because, I thought, while the allegations might well be true, it appears perhaps just as likely that the whole thing could be the result of a conspiracy to bring down an innocent man.

Let me explain. Mr. Cosby’s fame and reputation are largely based on his portrayal of one fictional Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable on his weekly network TV sit-com back in the 1980s, thoroughly familiarizing the nation with an amicable well-educated upper middle-class black family. The prototype thus portrayed is probably not the mean, but probably not all that unusual, either, and far from the then-contemporary stereotype of blacks as low-life degenerates dependent on welfare.

Meanwhile, the continuance of the dire feckless and low gangster-like stereotype was the very bread and butter of the right-wing’s message to America, then and again (or still) now, that minorities are something less than real, equal Americans and, as such are “the other”, undeserving of understanding and full citizenship. And the leaders of the civil rights movement, then and now, because of the regional and to an extent national subordination of minorities, often come across as whiny, feisty, over-intellectual, and rather tiresome radicals.

So then, here comes Bill Cosby and the Huxtables, with their showcase all-American universally-lovable black family, providing a new, attractive model of apolitical leadership by emulation that largely – not completely – blows the prevalent “welfare chiseler” and “welfare queen” image so carefully constructed over decades of right-wing angst out of the water. All well and good.

But now, here comes Obama, elected and then re-elected by minorities and liberals, without a white mandate or even plurality. President Obama has frankly stated that, without Bill Cosby, there would have been no President Obama (because no way José to break into the white boys’ club). And, if you think white conservatives are complacent about this, just look around and behold their apoplexy and panic. They are, in fact, desperate to re-install going forward the old, bad stereotypes of blacks and Hispanics, featuring both fear and loathing.

Remember, they tried to bring down Bill Clinton in similar fashion and failed. But I don’t think even that reviled Bill was as influential a figure or posed as big a threat to them as this one, who messed with America’s mind.

Possible suspect #2 – What about those hackneyed revolutionary-style black leaders themselves with their now-muted once-hot rhetoric, whose power is largely wielded through their message of victimology? Well, now there comes along the older, soberer Cosby of recent years with a message to young blacks to quit blaming others for their woes as downtrodden ne’er-do-wells, but instead, clean up their acts, exert gainful effort, and shine. The old leaders have tried to put Bill Cosby on notice, and these, too, have become his foes and rivals for supremacy of influence among blacks through the seeming incompatibility of their vital appeals, the old leaders taking the worst of it from the interloping clown.

But, why so much ado about what an aging idol did or didn’t do a quarter of a century ago, unresolvable now?

Because, his incredible, abiding influence on the American psyche, if you think about it, places him in the top ten most influential figures in our whole history as a nation.

Indeed, alarmed no-nonsense operatives in either the white supremacist or black movement camps may have found a motive for bribing some thirteen women known to have befriended this rock in their respective oysters to come forward and falsely accuse him – if that is what happened. But, my money would be on a distinct subgroup of the first suspect category. Do you suppose the FBI still harbors a few J. Edgar Hoover-like pieces of work among its ranks? And they would have the advantage or moxie, too, of being able to accurately profile the women, to determine which ones they could successfully employ to lie publicly and not rat them out.

Again, my point isn’t that I think that’s what happened, but that it makes sense to suspect that it may have, especially recalling the record of the hallowed Bureau as the perpetrator of so many exposed psy-ops.

And the larger point I have yet to mention is that, so far at least, even the black media has not come forward to give voice to this distinct more than possibility. Due to their mindless assumption of the Anti-Conspiratorial View, even they haven’t seriously thought of it, at least yet.

Again, in my humble opinion, before we in 9/11 Truth can begin to successfully convince America that 9/11 is today ripe for a real, thorough, and systematic investigation, we first have to convince the nation of the falsity of its induced ACV – to teach America as a whole to reasonably question everything. Because, nearly everything we’re presented with is subject to serious doubt – a lesson that “citizens” of the Soviet Union learned very well. Your view?

What's It All About?

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization


‘Tis the Psyop season! And it has been for years. Psyops (psychological operations, to usefully excite or incite the bumbo and lesser operatives to impel or condition them to abet or forward the perpetrators’ larger purpose) happen constantly all around us.

So, who are these perpetrators of, by, and for whom all the cumulative multitude of psyops are designed and sprung on a mostly somnambulant world? As I’ve stated before, my humble more-than-a-guess is that we’re talking essentially of a miniscule cadre of faceless leaders through the decades of global central banking, perhaps the very board of trustees of the supreme Bank of International Settlements, the bank of the world’s central banks located in the monolithic “Tower of Basel” in Basel, Switzerland

They, or a closely related shadow-body, I have come to believe, are the inside directive-framing authority that calls for and specifically orders, licenses, and signs off on all of the coordinated psycho jobs designed in detail and sprung by their levels of underlings, acolytes or puppets, of whom the preferred and usual operatives are a few countries’ so-called “security agencies” and trained special forces. Why do I believe this is so? Because, since they could advantageously perform this role (rather than relying on and influencing chance), I am convinced they would. And evidence bears it out.

Prominent among contemporary or recent shock events that are proven or widely suspected of being New World Order psyops, for each one of which there is significant or compelling evidence, are the following (a woefully partial list):

9/11 (certainly, the lynchpin event to date), 7/7, Oklahoma City, Bali bombing, Mumbai attacks, Tucson-Fort Hood-Aurora-Sandy Hook, Hurricane Sandy, BP oil disaster, Malaysian Airlines “lost” plane, Alleged Osama bin Laden killing, Fukushima disaster, 2008 - ? Great Recession and selective recovery, Global climate manipulation via HAARP-related actions, California drought, ISIS or ISIL establishment and secret backing, Recent “terrorism” in Canada

And Ebola, though maybe not intended to spawn a global pandemic, is allegedly itself a result of U.S. bioterrorism experiments conducted in West Africa gone astray.

It is my contention – and not mine alone these days – that all of these events and countless more (as well as notable earlier instances) have been coordinated and emitted from a single organizational source, rather than, for instance, by a series of varying U.S. presidential administrations with markedly different personalities, emphases, and styles. By comparison, the mythic narrative of events is seamless.

And what ties all of these many instances of psyops together is that they all become baked like raisins into a single, seamless and self-referencing, self-serving myth-laden narrative that sternly discounts every other version of the events. This magical narrative, wildly unbeholden to discernible facts, is rolled out day by day without end ever by the whole coordinated establishment and its in-harness media, as perfectly aligned in interpreting as iron filings moved by a magnet. The genius is in the uniform virtual seamlessness of their common fabric of lies.

And so, the truth of each segment or event becomes misjudged by the whole non-thinking public due to being instantaneously misjudged in reference to the uniformly endorsed but factually flawed or false narrative of all the other events, making the mythology self-affirming to the unreflective and thus largely invulnerable to stigmatized fact-based revisionists like us.

In my estimation, our best hope is to strategize to blow the cover of the top cadre and command operation of the secretly-ruling NWO once and for all time, in order to get people to stop buying the whole ever-growing series of chapters of the controlling (almost scriptural) narrative of events.

The overarching operation is wholly anathema, because it’s all about the rough, murderous turning of our rightful world into their utopia, of which the non-topmost masses of the earth cannot be anything within a million miles of citizens.

Has the world been commandeered by a self-appointed psychopathic criminal gang that has catastrophically cancelled the pro-resident Enlightenment by applying undreamed-of advanced technology, a uniting centuries-long dark determination, and precision psychology? Consider their most-infamous crimes and lesser assaults on freedom and justice daily, and judge for yourself.

Pass the word so we can all rise or cripplingly obstruct in mass revulsion, not against the horrendous symptoms, but the worse-than-nightmare life-blighting disease itself.

Global Research - Canadian Terror Wave: A Modern-Day Gladio

Canadian Terror Wave: a Modern-Day Gladio By Tony Cartalucci Global Research, October 23, 2014 Url of this article: As warned, after multiple staged incidents used to ratchet up fear and paranoia in the build-up to US and its allies’ military intervention in Syria and Iraq, at least two live attacks have now been carried out in Canada – precisely as they were predicted. The first attack involved a deadly hit-and-run that left one Canadian soldier dead. AP would report in its article, “Terrorist ideology blamed in Canada car attack,” that: A young convert to Islam who killed a Canadian soldier in a hit-and-run had been on the radar of federal investigators, who feared he had jihadist ambitions and seized his passport when he tried to travel to Turkey, authorities said Tuesday. second, most recent attack, involved a shooting in Ottawa injuring several and killing another Canadian soldier on parliament Hill. RT in its article, “Ottawa gunman ‘identified’ as recent Muslim convert, high-risk traveler,” would report that: While the name of the Ottawa gunman is yet to be announced, a number of officials told numerous media that the shooter is believed to be Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a recent Muslim convert, allegedly designated as a high-risk traveler. Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was born in Quebec as Michael Joseph Hall north of Montreal, two US officials told Reuters, claiming that American law enforcement agencies have been advised that the attacker recently converted to Islam. AP sources also identified the man to be Zehaf-Bibeau. A Twitter account associated with Islamic State militants tweeted a photo they identified as the Ottawa shooter. The Globe and Mail reports that the shooter was designated a “high-risk traveler” by the Canadian authorities with his passport seized. Clearly, both suspects were under the watch of not only Canadian authorities, but also US investigators, before the attacks. Canada’s Attacks Were Predictable – Western Security Agencies are Prime Suspects It was warned last month after security agencies staged scares in both the US and Australia, that suspects under investigation, being walked through planned terrorist attacks by Western security agencies as part of “sting operations” would inevitably be switched to live terrorist attacks. In mid-September A Rochester man, Mufid A. Elfgeeh, was accused by the FBI of attempting to provide material support to ISIS (undercover FBI agents), attempting to kill US soldiers, and possession of firearms and silencers (provided to him by the FBI). The FBI’s own official press release stated (emphasis added): According to court records, Elfgeeh attempted to provide material support to ISIS in the form of personnel, namely three individuals, two of whom were cooperating with the FBI. Elfgeeh attempted to assist all three individuals in traveling to Syria to join and fight on behalf of ISIS. Elfgeeh also plotted to shoot and kill members of the United States military who had returned from Iraq. As part of the plan to kill soldiers, Elfgeeh purchased two handguns equipped with firearm silencers and ammunition from a confidential source. The handguns were made inoperable by the FBI before the confidential source gave them to Elfgeeh. It was warned that only an inoperable firearm stood between Elfgeeh’s arrest and his successful execution of deadly plans hatched by him and his undercover FBI handlers. This script, written by the FBI to entrap Elfgeeh, would be followed almost to the letter in live attacks subsequently carried out in Canada resulting in the death of two Canadian soldiers. Conveniently, both suspects are now dead and little chance remains of ascertaining the truth of who they were in contact with and how they carried out their deadly attacks. With both suspects having been on both US and Canadian watch lists – it is very likely undercover agents were involved in either one or both cases. While many possibilities exist, Western security agencies should be among the first suspects considered as potential collaborators. A Modern-Day Operation Gladio - Inducing Fear, Obedience, and Control Before Elfgeeh’s entrapment and later live attacks in Canada, US policymakers and pundits had begun in earnest setting the rhetorical stage for eventual staged attacks. With serial beheadings failing to raise Western public support necessary for an expedient intervention in Syria, more insidious provocations appeared to be in the works. Setting the stage, a CBS/Associated Press story titled, “Former Deputy CIA Director: ‘I Would Not Be Surprised’ If ISIS Member Shows Up To US Mall Tomorrow With AK-47,” would claim immediately after the initial James Foley ISIS execution video that: “The short-term concern is the Americans that have gone to fight with ISIS and the west Europeans that have gone to fight with ISIS could be trained and directed by ISIS to come to the United States to conduct small-scale attacks,” Morell stated. “If an ISIS member showed up at a mall in the United States tomorrow with an AK-47 and killed a number of Americans, I would not be surprised.” Morell warned that over the long-term the extremist group could be planning for a 9/11-style attack that killed thousands of Americans. The FBI has a long list of foiled terror plots of its own creation. More disturbingly are the plots they conceived but “accidentally” allowed to go “live.” One might recall the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. FBI agents, according to the New York Times, were indeed overseeing the bombers that detonated a device killing six and wounding many more at the World Trade Center. In their article, “Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast,” NYT reported: Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast. The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said. The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City’s tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars. Considering the 1993 bombing and the fact that the FBI literally oversaw the construction and deployment of a deadly bomb that killed 6, it is clear that the FBI can at any time through design or disastrous incompetence, turn one of their contrived entrapment cases into a live terror attack. One can only guess at how many similar FBI operations are currently taking place within the United States involving ISIS sympathizers – any one of which could be turned into a live terror attack provided the weapons handed over to potential terrorists are functioning, just as the bomb was in 1993 when it was driven into the lower levels of the World Trade Center. It is very likely that the recent attacks in Canada involved at least one “informant” working for the FBI. Because the FBI uses confidential informants to handle suspects, if a plot is switched ”live,” the informant will be implicated as an accomplice and the FBI’s covert role will remain uncompromised. Image: The FBI has an impressive portfolio of intentionally created, then foiled terror plots. Its methods include allowing suspects to handle both real and inoperable weapons and explosives. These methods allow the FBI to switch entrapment cases “live” at any moment simply by switching out duds and arrests with real explosives and successful attacks. Because the FBI uses “informants,” when attacks go live, these confidential assets can be blamed, obfuscating the FBI’s involvement. Everything from a mass shooting to a bombing, and even an Operation Northwoods-style false flag attack involving aircraft could be employed to provide Wall Street and London with the support it needs to accelerate its long-stalled agenda of regime change and reordering in both Syria and across the Iranian arc of influence. Readers may recall Operation Northwoods, reported on in an ABC News article titled, “U.S. Military Wanted to Provoke War With Cuba,” which bluntly stated: In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba. Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities. In addition to Operation Northwoods, the public must also consider NATO’s Operation Gladio, and its larger “stay behind” networks established after World War II across Europe and at the center of multiple grisly assassinations, mass shootings, and terrorist bombings designed to demonize the Soviet Union as well as criminalize and crush support for left-leaning political parties growing in popularity in Western Europe. It would be determined that NATO’s own covert militant groups were killing innocent Western Europeans in order to effect a “strategy of tension” used to instill fear, obedience, and control over Western populations. That the FBI and Australian authorities had coordinated staged security operations in tandem on opposite ends of the globe to terrify their respective populations into line behind an impending war with Syria, and now two highly suspicious attacks have been carried out using the very script Western security agencies were using to lead suspects through “sting operations,” suggests a new “Operation Northwoods” or “Operation Gladio” of sorts is already being executed. Staged executions on cue by ISIS in the Middle East of US and British citizens at perfectly timed junctures of the West’s attempt to sell intervention both at home and abroad, and now live shootings just in time to heighten a new “strategy of tension” reek of staged mayhem for the sole purpose of provoking war. Could grander and ultimately more tragic mayhem be in store? As ABC News’ article on Operation Northwoods and the Military Channel’s documentary on Operation Gladio suggest, there is no line Western special interests will hesitate to cross. With the West attempting to claim ISIS now has a “global” reach, the US and its partners’ attempts to obfuscate the very obvious state-sponsorship it is receiving will become exponentially more difficult. That the FBI is admittedly stringing along easily manipulated, malevolent patsies who at any time could be handed real weapons and sent on shooting sprees and/or bombings – and now apparently have been – Americans, Canadians, Europeans, and Australians would be foolish to conclude that their real enemy resides somewhere in Syria and not right beside them at home, upon the very seats of Western power.

Global Research - U.S. Bioterrorism Experiments, Guatemala & West Africa

U.S. is Responsible for the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: Liberian Scientist By Timothy Alexander Guzman Global Research, October 17, 2014 Url of this article: A History of Guatemala’s Syphilis Experiment: How a U.S. Led Team Performed Human Experimentations in Central America Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberia’s College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following: The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus? Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls “viral fever bioterrorism”, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the “epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.” Is it a fact? Is Dr. Broderick a conspiracy theorist? He says that “there is urgent need for affirmative action in protecting the less affluent of poorer countries, especially African citizens, whose countries are not as scientifically and industrially endowed as the United States and most Western countries, sources of most viral or bacterial GMOs that are strategically designed as biological weapons.” He also asks an important question when he says “It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?” Well, Mr. Broderick’s claims seem to be true. After all, the U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time, history tells us so. One example is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments. The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases ever gave informed consent. The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called ‘Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.’ It stated how she came across her discovery: Picking through musty files in a Pennsylvania archive, a Wellesley College professor made a heart-stopping discovery: US government scientists in the 1940s deliberately infected hundreds of Guatemalans with syphilis and gonorrhea in experiments conducted without the subjects’ permission. Medical historian Susan M. Reverby happened upon the documents four or five years ago while researching the infamous Tuskegee syphilis study and later shared her findings with US government officials. The unethical research was not publicly disclosed until yesterday, when President Obama and two Cabinet secretaries apologized to Guatemala’s government and people and pledged to never repeat the mistakes of the past — an era when it was not uncommon for doctors to experiment on patients without their consent. After Reverby’s discovery, the Obama administration apparently gave an apology to then-President Alvaro Colom according to the Boston Globe: Yesterday, Obama called President Álvaro Colom Caballeros of Guatemala to apologize, and Obama’s spokesman told reporters the experiment was “tragic, and the United States by all means apologizes to all those who were impacted by this. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had called Colom Thursday night to break the news to him. In her conversation with the Guatemalan president, Clinton expressed “her personal outrage and deep regret that such reprehensible research could occur,’’ said Arturo Valenzuela, assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs. study in Guatemala was led by John Cutler, a US health service physician who also took part in the controversial Tuskegee Syphilis experiments which began in the 1930’s. Researchers wanted to study the effects of a group of antibiotics called penicillin on affected individuals. The prevention and treatment of syphilis and other venereal diseases were also included in the experimentation. Although they were treated with antibiotics, more than 83 people had died according to BBC news in 2011 following a statement issued by Dr Amy Gutmann, head of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues: The Commission said some 5,500 Guatemalans were involved in all the research that took place between 1946 and 1948. Of these, some 1,300 were deliberately infected with syphilis, gonorrhoea or another sexually transmitted disease, chancroid. And of that group only about 700 received some sort of treatment. According to documents the commission had studied, at least 83 of the 5,500 subjects had died by the end of 1953. Washington’s reaction to the report is a farce. The apology made to Guatemala’s government was for the sake of public relations. Washington knows about its human experimentations in the past with deadly diseases conducted by government-funded laboratories that are known to be harmful to the public. The U.S. government is guilty in conducting numerous medical experiments on people not only in Guatemala but in other countries and on its own territory. As the Boston Globe report mentioned, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study occurred between 1932 and 1972 by the U.S. Public Health Service to study the “natural progression” of untreated syphilis in the African American population. The U.S. Public Health Service and the Tuskegee Institute collaborated in 1932 and enrolled 600 poor sharecroppers from Macon County, Alabama to study the syphilis infection. However, it was documented that at least 400 of those had the disease (they were never informed that they actually had syphilis) while the remaining 200 did not. They received free medical care, food and even free burial insurance for participating in the study. Documents revealed that they were told that they had “bad blood” which meant that they had various medical conditions besides syphilis. The Tuskegee scientists continued to study the participants without treating their illnesses and they also withheld much-needed information from the participants about penicillin, which proved to be effective in treating Syphilis and other venereal diseases. The test subjects were under the impression that they were receiving free health care from the U.S. government while they were deliberately being lied to by the same administrators who were conducting the tests. Washington is fully aware of its human experimentations with deadly diseases. The government of Guatemala also knew about the Syphilis experiments according to the Boston Globe: A representative of the Guatemalan government said his nation will investigate, too — looking in part at the culpability of officials in that country. The records of the experiment suggest that Guatemalan government officials were fully aware of the tests, sanctioned them, and may have done so in exchange for stockpiles of penicillin. However, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published the study ‘Fact Sheet on the 1946-1948 U.S. Public Health Service Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) Inoculation Study’ and was forced to admit what happened in Guatemala during the syphilis experiments: While conducting historical research on the Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis, Professor Susan Reverby of Wellesley College recently discovered the archived papers of the late Dr. John Cutler, a U.S. Public Health Service medical officer and a Tuskegee investigator. The papers described another unethical study supported by the U.S. government in which highly vulnerable populations in Guatemala were intentionally infected with sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The study, conducted between 1946 and 1948, was done with the knowledge of Dr. Cutler’s superiors and was funded by a grant from the U.S. National Institutes of Health to the Pan American Sanitary Bureau (which became the Pan American Health Organization) to several Guatemalan government ministries. The study had never been published. The U.S. government admitted to its wrongdoing, 62 years too late. What Dr. Broderick wrote is not conspiratorial in any sense. The U.S. government has been involved in bioterrorism; Guatemala is a case in point. Dr. Broderick summarized what average people can do to prevent governments, especially those from the West from creating and exposing populations from diseases they experiment with in laboratories: The challenge is global, and we request assistance from everywhere, including China, Japan, Australia, India, Germany, Italy, and even kind-hearted people in the U.S., France, the U.K., Russia, Korea, Saudi Arabia, and anywhere else whose desire is to help. The situation is bleaker than we on the outside can imagine, and we must provide assistance however we can. To ensure a future that has less of this kind of drama, it is important that we now demand that our leaders and governments be honest, transparent, fair, and productively engaged. They must answer to the people. Please stand up to stop Ebola testing and the spread of this dastardly disease. After Guatemala’s ordeal with the U.S. government who deliberately infected people with syphilis, West African nations should be extremely skeptical about the U.S. government’s actions combating Ebola. Professor Francis Boyle of the University of Illinois, College of Law questions the Obama administration’s actions in West Africa. RIA Novosti recently interviewed Boyle and he said the following: US government agencies have a long history of carrying out allegedly defensive biological warfare research at labs in Liberia and Sierra Leone. This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is now the point agency for managing the Ebola spill-over into the US,” Prof. Francis Boyle said. Why has the Obama administration dispatched troops to Liberia when they have no training to provide medical treatment to dying Africans? How did Zaire/Ebola get to West Africa from about 3,500km away from where it was first identified in 1976?” That’s a good question for Washington, but would the public get any answers? Not anytime soon, since it took more than 62 years for the Guatemala syphilis experiments to be exposed to the public, not by the US government, by a medical historian.
