USA - BRUCE JACKSON

 

 

According to a 1 May article in "American Prospect", "Minister

Without Portfolio", by John B. Judis, former military

intelligence officer during the 1980s, Bruce Jackson, was

assigned to the Pentagon in the Reagan and Bush senior

administrations, where he worked under leading neo-

conservatives Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Dick Cheney. In

the late 1990s, while working for Lockheed Martin, Jackson

avidly promoted the expansion of NATO into Eastern Europe. Last

fall the Bush junior administration called on Jackson to set up

the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq. "People in the White

House said, 'We need you to do for Iraq what you did for

NATO,'" Jackson said in a telephone interview with Judis.

ANOTHER PENTAGON "B MOVIE" PRODUCTION IN IRAQ

 

 

"It was a classic joint operation, done by some of our nation's

finest warriors who are dedicated to never leaving a comrade

behind (...) Who was holding her? The regime was holding her."

That was how the "unflappable and remarkably uninformative" US

Brigadier General Vincent Brooks, described the rescue of

Private Jessica Lynch from an Iraqi hospital, on 2 April, to

journalists at the Coalition Media Center (Centcom), at the

Saliyah military base in Doha, Qatar. The briefing was

accompanied by grainy-green footage, shot by night-vision

cameras, of US Special Forces landing by helicopter outside a

hospital in Nasiriya, kicking down doors, firing their weapons

(apparently at Iraqi soldiers) before taking Pt. Lynch, heavily

bandaged and strapped in a stretcher, with a soldier running

alongside holding a drip-feed, down a flight of stairs to the

waiting helicopters.

 

At a White House briefing, the US Defence Secretary, Donald

Rumsfeld, told the accredited journalists that America was

"certainly grateful for the brilliant and courageous rescue of

Pt. Jessica Lynch who was being held by Iraqi forces in what

they call a hospital." The "dramatic rescue" of the young PoW

was a much-needed morale booster on the home front, coming at a

time when the invasion of Iraq appeared not to be going

precisely to plan, and there was barely a mention of Pt.

Lynch's comrades whose bodies had been retrieved from shallow

graves during the same mission. A report in the "Washington

Post" -- which claimed that Pt. Lynch had "fought valiantly",

firing until she ran out of ammunition, and "although wounded,

she shot several Iraqi soldiers" -- summed up the uncritical

attitude of the US media, while the "battlefield footage" was

repeatedly screened in news bulletins by all the major US and

international television stations.

 

The problem for the media, which accepted the Pentagon's

version without analyzing the facts, is that the story isn't

true. Pt. Lynch was "rescued" and flown to the US base by

helicopter, but she could have left by the front-door, if the

Americans had simply called the hospital and asked for her to

be released. The BBC 2 "Corespondent" program, and the "Toronto

Star", investigated the account of Pt Lynch's rescue, and

uncovered a totally different version of events. The injured

soldier -- probably injured during an accident in the vehicle

in which she was travelling and not due to combat with Iraqi

troops -- was taken to Nasiriya hospital by Iraqi soldiers and

put in the only specialist bed available. According to Dr.

Harith al Houssona, one of the two doctors who treated her: "I

examine her, I see she has a broken arm and a broken thigh with

a dislocated ankle. Then we do another examination. There is no

shooting, no bullet inside her body, no stab wound, no other

thing, merely RTA [road traffic accident]." The doctors set her

arm and thigh in plaster, and "we give her three bottles of

blood, two of them are from the medical staff because there is

no blood at this time."

FBI CAUGHT WITH ITS PANTS DOWN & IN BED WITH A SPY

 

 

That Chinese businesswoman Katrina Leung was successful at

making money with her companies and in compromising two senior

FBI officials in bed would be a fun story if the Bureau and the

same officials hadn't been behind the anti-Chinese witch-hunt

in 2000-2001 that led to the unjustified arrest and detention

for several months in solitary confinement of nuclear weapons

scientist, Wen Ho Lee (see "Lee 'Case' Becomes the Lee

'Affair'", n. 372 13; "More FBI 'Whistle-Blowing', 'Cut-Outs' &

Lee Affair", n. 374 19; "FBI Overlaps with the CIA, Lee Case &

Carnivore", n. 375 11; "FBI Going After Lee & Cubans", n. 378

17). After all, Leung was in bed with James J. "JJ" Smith, the

FBI agent in charge of Chinese intelligence assets in Los

Angeles, and William Cleveland Jr., an FBI agent who became

head of security at the Laurence Livermore nuclear weapons

research facility in California, a "sister" lab of the Los

Alamos lab where Wen Ho Lee had worked.

CIA "CORNERED" ON NON-EXISTENT IRAQI WMD

 

 

"Intelligence" has previously stated that the CIA, and the

British MI6, have "painted themselves into a corner" over

Iraq's supposed weapons of mass destruction (WMD). On one hand,

the CIA and MI6 could be incompetent and forwarded a falsified

document to US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, so that he

could claim before the UN Security Council "proof" of an Iraqi

nuclear weapons program existed. On the other hand, the CIA and

MI6 knew the document was false -- and may have helped produce

it -- but still let Powell use it as "proof", lie to the world

and justify the unprovoked invasion of a foreign country during

peace time. Certain CIA and MI6 detractors claim the two

services are both incompetent and lie to the world.

DOD & RUMSFELD DON'T RULE THE WORLD ... YET

 

 

US Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, got his unprovoked

invasion during peace time in Iraq. Now he wants it for Iran,

along with the development of a new generation of "mini-nukes"

that conservative Republicans tend to think are necessary and

useful. In reality, they are far more necessary and useful for

terrorist organizations and other US adversaries who will, of

course, develop them if George Bush decides Rumsfeld merits

this new toy. But then that would mean more money for anti-

terrorism research and development in the US, which the Bush

White House thinks is a good idea, particularly when the

economy is slow and the administration's "political weak

point". So we may have both: an unprovoked invasion during

peace in Iran and mini-nukes in the hands of Rumsfeld ... and

others.

FRANCE

 

"SPILLING THE BEANS" ON US ANTI-FRANCE OPS

 

 

That political adversaries use media operations to try to

damage each other's public image is nothing new, even when it

concerns modern developed nations. However, when the United

States' oldest ally, France, officially replies by the voice of

its ambassador, Jean-David Levitte, accuses the Bush White

House of such a campaign, and even lists examples of the

incriminating reports, that is definitely new. And that is what

Levitte did in his 15 May letter. "Intelligence" caught most of

the cited examples and warned readers concerning possible

fabrication. "Intelligence" also did the inverse: warning its

readers about questionable French material concerning the US

and its invasion of Iraq.

NORTH KOREA

 

NO TERRORISTS, BUT NUKES & HEROIN

 

 

Donald Rumsfeld hasn't called yet for the Third World War and

the invasion of North Korea, but there are plans ... Since he

and the DOD will not be able to sell an Qaida story to the

media, even to the pro-Bush White House media, heroin has been

added to the menu. Andre Hollis, Rumsfeld's deputy assistant

secretary of defense for counternarcotics told a Senate

Governmental Affairs subcommittee hearing recently that the

capture of the ship, "Pong Su", on 20 April, by Australian

security forces "heightens concerns that North Korean officials

may be using illicit trading activities to provide much-needed

hard currency to fund its army and weapons of mass destruction

programs." "Heightens concerns" is now being waved around like

a red flag for invasion when no one has asked the real drug

trafficking specialists at the DEA and the CIA if they're

backing Rumsfeld's heroin story. It may well be just another

"Iraq nuclear arms program" planned, conceived and animated

within the walls of the Pentagon.
