Bush's Conspiracy to Create an American Police State: Part I, Police States Begin With False Flag Attacks

By Len Hart

It was David Hume's 1758 Of the First Principles of Government that stated:

Nothing appears more surprising to those who consider human affairs with a philosophical eye than the easiness with which the many are governed by the few, and the implicit submission with which men resign their own sentiments and passions to those of their rulers.

When we inquire by what means this wonder is effected, we shall find that, as force is always on the side of the governed, the governors have nothing to support them but opinion. It is, therefore, on opinion only that government is founded, and this maxim extends to the most despotic and most military governments as well as to the most free and most popular.

-David Hume, Of the First Principles of Government

Global Blowback

http://www.thenewamerican.com/node/7753

Long before 9/11, Osama bin Laden’s terrorist activities around the world were being cited as a classic case of “blowback.” Quite obviously, the CIA’s support for bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and other radical Islamists in Afghanistan in the 1980s, ostensibly to counter the Soviets, had indeed helped spawn a virulently anti-American global terror network that was returning to haunt us.
Unfortunately, aiding al-Qaeda is far from the only “mistake” of this sort to be made by our government. In fact, the top policymakers at the State Department and National Security Council — in both Republican and Democratic administrations — seem to have a perverse proclivity for backing some of the most brutal terrorist organizations and terror-sponsoring regimes, time after time after time.

Here are a few disturbing examples of the absurd and indefensible “war on terror” policies that are aiding our enemies and undermining our security — and that are certain to bring a torrent of deadly blowback to America for years, if not decades, to come.

The Torture Memo by STEPHEN GILLERS

Anyone who had half a brain and cared to look knew this was going on . . . a similar pattern of deceit, obfuscation and willful negligence as with the WMD issue . . . the Emperor Wears No Clothes . . . and no one near Bush or Cheney had the kajones to stand up to them . . . Well, those that did, lost their jobs, or worse . . . .

The Torture Memo
by STEPHEN GILLERS

[from the April 28, 2008 issue]

The Justice Department is investigating the lawyers whose memos gave the Bush Administration the legal support it needed for waterboarding and other brutal interrogation techniques. We are "examining whether the legal advice in these memoranda was consistent with the professional standards that apply to Department of Justice attorneys," H. Marshall Jarrett, counsel for the Justice Department's Office of Professional Responsibility, wrote to two Democratic senators in February.

President Ahmadinejad's Letter to Bush May 2006 questioning 911

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/bsp/hi/pdfs/09_05_06ahmadinejadletter.pdf

....Mr President,

September Eleven was a horrendous incident. The killing of innocents is deplorable and
appalling in any part of the world. Our government immediately declared its disgust with the
perpetrators and offered its condolences to the bereaved and expressed its sympathies.
All governments have a duty to protect the lives, property and good standing of their citizens.
Reportedly your government employs extensive security, protection and intelligence systems
– and even hunts its opponents abroad. September eleven was not a simple operation. Could it
be planned and executed without coordination with intelligence and security services – or
their extensive infiltration? Of course this is just an educated guess. Why have the various
aspects of the attacks been kept secret? Why are we not told who botched their
responsibilities? And, why aren’t those responsible and the guilty parties identified and put
on trial? ......

Full Letter Below.

A Morning After, By Eric Harger, April 6, 2008

The spelling errors notwithstanding, I think these thoughts are relevant for 911 Bloggers . . . Many (most) of us have had these thoughts, as "crazy" as they may sound to the general population unaware of 9/11 Truth, they're logical . . . So, it seems maybe we should have a basic (communication/alert) plan should an obvious false flag op occur and the Internet mysteriously goes down or acts weird, as it did the last three days in the Philadelphia area . . . Maybe there should be a phone (or text) chain-type system set up across the country to immediately activate and alert whatever actions we have pre-planned . . . just a Sunday afternoon thought . . .

Maybe a plan (by us) is already in the works, and I am unaware . . .

A Morning After

By Eric Harger

I'm not holding my breath but maybe I am waiting to exhale.

Victor Bout, Rich B, GWOT, Pakistan and Much More – Additions as of April 5, 2008

This week was a very busy week for the 9/11 Timeline, and dozens of new entries were published. New material, and a new chapter, has been added to cover superstar arms dealer Victor Bout, who was assisted by a former US intelligence officer, was known to the CIA as supplier to the Taliban and al-Qaeda before 9/11, and is said to have transported heroin out of Afghanistan. He sold aircraft to the Taliban and the US created a team of catch him in 1999, but the Bush administration lost interest in apprehending him. Instead, he was hired to help US in Iraq, not once, but repeatedly. Whilst supporting the US in Iraq, he also supported Islamic militants in Somalia and Hezbollah, but was finally arrested last month.

British fear US commander is beating the drum for Iran strikes

London Telegraph

By Damien McElroy, Foreign Affairs Correspondent
Last Updated: 1:53am BST 05/04/2008

British officials gave warning yesterday that America's commander in Iraq will declare that Iran is waging war against the US-backed Baghdad government.

A strong statement from General David Petraeus about Iran's intervention in Iraq could set the stage for a US attack on Iranian military facilities, according to a Whitehall assessment. In closely watched testimony in Washington next week, Gen Petraeus will state that the Iranian threat has risen as Tehran has supplied and directed attacks by militia fighters against the Iraqi state and its US allies.

The outbreak of Iraq's worst violence in 18 months last week with fighting in Basra and the daily bombardment of the Green Zone diplomatic enclave, demonstrated that although the Sunni Muslim insurgency is dramatically diminished, Shia forces remain in a strong position to destabilise the country.

Propaganda disguised as journalism The invisible government

This appears to be a transcript from a talk John Pilger gave to promote his new book, Freedom Next Time.

"Many people who regard themselves on the left supported Bush's attack on Afghanistan. That the CIA had supported Osama Bin Laden was ignored, that the Clinton administration had secretly backed the Taliban, even giving them high-level briefings at the CIA, is virtually unknown in the United States. The Taliban were secret partners with the oil giant Unocal in building an oil pipeline across Afghanistan. And when a Clinton official was reminded that the Taliban persecuted women, he said, "We can live with that." There is compelling evidence that Bush decided to attack the Taliban not as a result of 9-11, but two months earlier, in July of 2001. This is virtually unknown in the United States - publicly. Like the scale of civilian casualties in Afghanistan. To my knowledge only one mainstream reporter, Jonathan Steele of the Guardian in London, has investigated civilian casualties in Afghanistan, and his estimate is 20,000 dead civilians, and that was three years ago."

What Would You Ask Petraeus?

This is a letter I just received from Congressman Robert Wexler. I think he really could use our help.

What Would You Ask Petraeus?

Dear Eloy,

As President Bush stubbornly refuses to change course in Iraq, it grows increasingly frustrating for those of us who have been loudly demanding a withdrawal. I know you share my frustration. Every day, I receive letters and emails from patriotic Americans who want to - somehow – personally contribute to a solution.

Now it is your turn.

Next week, General Petraeus – the architect of the failed surge policy and our chief military leader in Iraq - will be testifying before the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

For too long the Bush Administration has been in a bubble – hiding from the truth and avoiding tough questions from outraged American citizens. This time I am turning the oversight powers of Congress over to you.

I want you to be the ones asking the questions to General Petraus.

Write me back with a short reply and tell me what - specifically - you would like me to ask. Please include your first name as well as your city and state.

Attorney General Mukasey lies about 9/11 and international spying

In a recent speech at San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club, Attorney General Michael Mukasey defended the Bush-Cheney administration’s illegal domestic spying agenda by proclaiming that the 9/11 attacks could have been prevented if the government had been able to monitor overseas phone calls to the United States.

Like every other member of the Bush-Cheney administration, Mukasey is lying. Lying about the fact that the “war on terrorism” is a fabrication. Lying about the pervasive worldwide eavesdropping capabilities of US intelligence agencies. Lying about the fact that 9/11 was a long-planned Anglo-American false flag covert operation.

According to Mukasey’s spin on the now-classic 9/11 fiction, Bush-Cheney “knew there had been a call from some place that was known to be a safe house in Afghanistan and we knew that it came to the United States. We didn’t know precisely where it went. We’ve got 3,000 people who went to work that day, and didn’t come home, to show for that.”

Plan 51 From Outer Space - Air America's Richard Greene Discusses National Nightmare

Tuesday March 25, 2008
Air America Radio's Richard Greene chats with Matthew Rothschild, 9/11 truth sceptic and editor of the Progressive Magazine, about Presidential Directive 51 (seize control of the country) which is apparently modeled after one of GW's mentors in the early 1940's. John Conyers (202.225.5126) reveals that he doesn't know what it is.

In building Iraq, I don't like the prices that we're paying..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
America has been in Iraq for five years - longer than it spent in either World War #1 or #2.

Daily military operations (not counting, for example, future care of wounded) have already cost more than 12 years in Vietnam, and twice as much as the Korean war.

America is spending $16bn a month on running costs alone (ie on top of the regular expenses of the Department of Defence) in Iraq and Afghanistan; that is the entire annual budget of the UN.

To Ask These Questions, Just Fill In The (Blanks)...

The President Malevolent

I wrote this on June 20, 1991 (mucho pre-9/11--my how time doth pass, and then again does not...). Still seems relevant.

There once was a president malevolent
Who took the law of the country as affrontery.
So he said to his henchmen:
"Don't be back-benchmen,
Get into drugs and gun-runnery.

"It may seem a bit crummy
In this way to make money
To stir up the rabble
And flood 'em with babble
While they sit there and say, 'Ain't it funny.'

"But to hell with democracy.
It's just old-fashioned hypocrisy.
The world is OUR oyster
And there's not enough moisture
To feed all those blithering sops you see.

"We knock off the hard 'uns
The John F.'s and Bobbys and Martins
Send the young 'uns to jail
The dumb 'uns to Yale
And some to California with pardons.

"We've got wars and AIDS to get rid of the scum
Whores and parades to satisfy some
While the boys at Harvard
Talk starboard and larboard
Having fun keeping mum and the shit in the bum.

"The truth, in fact, is plain to see
That's the problem with democracy.
So thank God for Dan Rather
And all of that blather
On the news every night on TV."

A Fable: What the President's response to 9/11 might have been

By L.M. Arndt

The President never made it to the classroom that morning, and so he missed the reading of “The Pet Goat.” When the Secret Service agent gave him the news that a plane had hit one of the World Trade Center towers, he immediately had an aide contact the school to say that the President would be delayed.

It might not amount to anything. Planes had crashed into buildings before, usually totalling the plane but creating relatively little damage to the building. Still, with the bits and pieces of information that had been coming in over the past several months, including hints of an attack – well, any such event had to be taken seriously.

More messages soon removed all doubt. Two other planes had been highjacked. One of them had hit the second tower. Both towers were on fire. Clouds of black smoke were pouring from the impact sites.
