BUSH REGIME IMPOSSIBILITY OF A "REAL" REPORT

 

 

Specialists are now wondering wether or not the Bush White

House and its allies "are at all capable of producing a 'real'

report on anything that touches issues sensitive for right-wing

fundamentalist Protestants", as we mention in "Timeline" below.

Indeed, the list of false reports is long and the recent new

additions include ABC's ideological fiction titled "The Path to

9/11", the Senate Intelligence Committee report on the Bush

White House's use/distortion of intelligence to push for an

invasion of Iraq, the House Intelligence Committee's misleading

and incorrect report on Iran's nuclear program, the hiring by

the "Washington Post" of pro-Bush, pro-war right-wing columnist

Michael Gerson who has "gotten it wrong" several times.

SNOOPGATE - Tracerouting NSA & AT&T.  A very interesting entry

from the blog at wired.com was titled "The Newbie's Guide to

Detecting the NSA" and told how to use traceroute under MS/DOS.

Just "type tracert followed by the domain name of the Web site,

e-mail host, VoIP switch, or whatever destination you're

interested in. Watch as the program spits out your route, line

by line ... The magic string you're looking for is

sffca.ip.att.net. If it's present immediately above or below a

non-att.net entry, then -- by Klein's allegations -- your

packets are being copied into room 641A, and from there,

illegally, to the NSA. Of course, if Marcus is correct and AT&T

has installed these secret rooms [not just in San Francisco

but] all around the country, then any att.net entry in your

route is a bad sign." The same can be said of the other telecom

companies known to have been working secretly with the NSA.

USA - DAVID CUNNINGHAM

 

 

At the center of the ABC "Path to 9/11" fictitious documentary,

one finds director David Cummingham who also set up a secretive

fundamentalist right-wing religious group to "transform

Hollywood" in line with its messianic vision.

FALLOUT FROM ABC'S IDEOLOGICAL 9/11 FICTION

 

 

With the heated dispute and confusion that preceded the 10-11

September screening of ABC's ideological fiction titled "The

Path to 9/11", one thing should be retained: ABC and its parent

Walt Disney Co. -- "despite multiple concerns" -- nonetheless

showed the film. This clearly means that ABC and Disney Co. are

in right-wing hands. Just look at the list of "establishment"

protests preceding the screening:

GREAT BRITAIN

 

BLAIR'S TROUBLESOME DIPLOMATS

 

 

William Patey, British ambassador to Iraq until the end of July

when he returned to London, is only the latest of a series of

senior British diplomats to criticize his government's foreign

policy with his depressing assessment of a peaceful future for

Iraq (see Iraq below). Writing in the "Financial Times"

recently, Sir Rodrick Braithwaith, a former ambassador to

Moscow and ex-chairman of the Joint Intelligence Committee

(JIC) in the early 1990s, criticized Blair for being too close

to the Bush administration and called on the PM to resign. Sir

Rodrick -- who had been sceptical of MI6 "soft intelligence"

analysis on eastern European issues while chairman of the JIC -

- described Blair as a "frayed and waxy zombie straight from

Madame Tussaud's", programmed by the CIA "to spout the language

of the White House in an artificial English accent. Mr. Blair's

'total identification' with the White House has destroyed his

influence in Washington, Europe and the Middle East" and he

should "no longer stand upon the order of his going, but go. At

once."

LEBANON

 

ISRAELIS ON ISRAEL'S WAR CRIMES

 

 

During the Israeli "blitzkrieg" of Lebanon, the IDF, using

Multiple-Launch Rocket System (MLRS) tire and track mobile

platforms, fired 1,800 cluster bombs containing 1.2 million

cluster bomblets, according to an IDF rocket unit commander in

Lebanon. The claim was made in a 12 September "Haaretz" report

which also stated that IDF artillery units used phosphorous

shells during the war. Most of the explosive ordnance was fired

in the final ten days of the 34-day conflict which cost the

lives of 1,100 Lebanese civilians.

AFGHANISTAN

 

"NATO'S VIETNAM"?

 

 

During a 6 September press conference in Kabul, the NATO

Secretary-General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, claimed that NATO

forces were "winning the war" against the Taliban, and would

remain in Afghanistan "until the job is done." De Hoop Scheffer

is either delusional or being deliberately mendacious. He's

certainly ignorant of Afghan's history. The country has been

described as a "graveyard for foreign armies" and reports

published by two international think-tanks on 5 September

suggest that Afghanistan has the potential to become "NATO's

Vietnam."
