An article at Wired lets us know about "Jellyfish," a new "corporate-information" company:
Veterans from the most infamous private security firm on Earth and one of the military’s most controversial data mining operations are teaming up to provide the Fortune 500 with their own private spies.
Take one part Blackwater, and another part Able Danger, the military data-mining op that claimed to have identified members of al-Qaida living in the United States before 9/11. Put ‘em together, and you’ve got a new company called Jellyfish.
Fiction delivers justice that reality rarely approaches. Victims endure suffering and emerge as victors after overcoming incredible challenges. Stieg Larsson's gripping Millennium Trilogy weaves a story of revenge and triumphs for Lizbeth Salander, locked away in a mental institution and sexually abused for years. When Salander got out and threatened to go public about a high level sexual exploitation ring, the perpetrators sought to lock her up again. In the final installment, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, Salander found some justice. (Image)
Susan Lindauer's autobiography, Extreme Prejudice, tells a story with certain broad similarities. In her case, however, the hornet's nest kicked back with a real vengeance. After over a decade as a U.S intelligence asset, Lindauer was privy to information about pre war Iraq that threatened to serve up a huge embarrassment to the Bush-Cheney regime. She hand delivered a letter to senior Bush administration officials in hopes of averting what she predicted would be the inevitably tragic 2003 US invasion of Iraq. Those officials, unnamed in the indictment, were her second cousin, then White House chief of staff Andy Card, and Colin Powell.
Before 9/11, In 2001, From Feb to July 2001 a trial was going on in NYC. It was called "USA v. Usama bin Laden et al". It was over in July 2001 but not the sentencing part. The sentencing came after 9/11 in Oct 2001. The only defendant that didn't receive his sentencing was the only one that had already pleaded guilty. His name was Ali Mohammed.

"Besides the four men sentenced on Thursday, another defendant, Ali Mohamed, pleaded guilty last year."

The super-classified network that served as command and control for the 9/11 false flag attack on America
By Wayne Madsen

(WMR) -- Multiple U.S. intelligence sources have reported to WMR that a super-classified network with only some 70 terminals in select U.S. government locations handled the parallel command-and-control activities that permitted the 9/11 terrorist attacks to be successful.
The “above top secret” network bears the acronym “PDAS.” WMR has not yet discovered what the acronym stands for, however, the system is limited to only a few hundred people with Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Special Access Program (SAP) need-to-know access, in addition to the president and vice president.

This article is significant alone, but it is noteworthy that the publisher of World Reports, Christopher Story, re-posted the article at his web site. Christopher Story, FRSA reports that the numbers of fatalities on 9/11/01 were underestimated. He is also one of the only Financial Publisher who fingered the US administrations for that false flag operation and tremendous financial fraud mixed in threatening the world crises.

EDITOR'S COMMENT: WE HARDLY EVER USE THIS PRIVILEGED SPACE TO PROMULGATE THE WORK OF OTHER ANALYSTS, AS WE HAVE SO MUCH TO DEVELOP FROM OUR OWN SOURCES.
HOWEVER THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE BY PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS, A FORMER ASSISTANT SECRETARY TO THE U.S. TREASURY, REQUIRES IMMEDIATE DISSEMINATION, SO WE ARE DELIGHTED TO HAND OUR SPACE OVER TO HIM. LIKE THE EDITOR, ROBERTS TELLS THE TRUTH, AND REMAINS VERTICAL. THE TIME IS LONG PAST FOR COWARDLY EQUIVOCATION.

Break the CIA in Two By Ray McGovern
December 22, 2009
Editor’s Note: Exactly 46 years ago, President Harry Truman looked back on the still-young CIA, which he had helped create, and was alarmed at how its original purpose – to provide unvarnished information to top policymakers – was being perverted by the agency’s growing role in covert operations.
Nearly a half century since Truman’s warning, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern marvels at Truman’s prescience and suggests that the only answer today is to separate out – and protect – the agency’s core analytical function:
After the CIA-led fiasco at the Bay of Pigs in April 1961, President John Kennedy was quoted as saying he wanted to “splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” I can understand his anger, but a thousand is probably too many.
Better is a Solomon solution; divide the CIA in two. That way we can throw out the bath water and keep the baby.
I copy/pasted the entire article to preserve it (see following the url) but the last 6 paragraphs are especially significant to 9/11 and the deep state, so I've also copy/pasted them just below - loose nuke
Another memorandum disclosed that a Defense Intelligence Agency employee said that in May 2002, in response to a Congressional inquiry, the Joint Forces Intelligence Command provided false information about its activities related to Al Qaeda and the Sept. 11 attacks. The document offered few details.
The Justice Department also released other documents Wednesday from other Freedom of Information Act lawsuits related to national security policies during the Bush administration.
Among them was a letter written in 2002 by George J. Tenet, who was the director of the Central Intelligence Agency at the time, suggesting that a C.I.A. ban on using journalists as spies was not airtight.
Former Accused Iraqi Agent Reveals Facts about 9/11 Warning
I first wrote about Susan Lindauer's struggle against the Bush-Cheney regime in October 2007, "American Cassandra: Susan Lindauer's Story." This was initially published in "Scoop" Independent Media (complete series) and carried by a wide variety of concerned Internet news sites and blogs. This interview follows the full dismissal of charges against her just before President Obama's inauguration on January 20, 2009. This is the first in depth interview that Lindauer has offered regarding 911. Below is part one of the interview.
Somebody ought to at least ask this Gul what he thinks of the fact that one of his predecessors, Mahmud Ahmed, was with Congressman and later CIA director Porter Goss and Senator and Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Bob Graham in Washington discussing Osama bin Laden when 9/11 occurred, and of the possibility that Ahmed was the one who ordered $100,000 to be sent to Mohammed Atta.
To believe the Government had advanced knowledge of 9/11 and allowed it to happen or even helped facilatate it is rather hard to believe for some, and debunkers of "9/11 truth" would rather believe official Government documents, and reports, along with mainstream media coverage for their information on wether or not there is any truth of advanced knowledge.
Trying to convince someone that the WTC was blown to pieces with explosives is impossible for some to grasp and understandibly so. In order to even start to believe that you have to believe that it was known that there would be an attack, and have detailed knowledge of it.
So for those that don't believe it could be an "inside job", I will use these official government reports and mainstream media reports to show it is not irrational to come to this conclusion, but rather logical.

I voted for Cynthia McKinney because she was the only candidate who sees him (I think it is a he). The others either don't, or won't admit it, and I see no significant difference between these two points of non-view.
According to polls about a third of the US population (not to mention the rest of the world) think, or at least suspect, that 9/11 was an inside job, and McKinney was the only candidate who has even mentioned the possibility. Of course I'm glad that Obama has spared us the catastrophe of McCain, but this time I decided to indulge my "conscience"--that is, vote for the person I would really like to see in office--because it was pretty clear to me that Dumbo had decided on Obama, and in the long run we will never break the yoke of the two-qua-one party system unless we vote outside the box.
Cynthia McKinneyʼs .1% of the vote came from some places that, for me at least, were
unexpected. I would not have expected proportionately more Louisianans to vote for her
than people in any other state, for example, and though California doesnʼt surprise me I
would not have thought Maine, Arkansas and West Virginia would come out ahead of New
York and Massachusetts.
This may be worth some cogitation. I voted for her mainly, but not only, because she was
the only 9/11 truth candidate, i.e. the only person on the ballot (mine anyway, in Florida)
who has had the guts to call for a real investigation of the major event that has been the
excuse for the last 8 years of horror perpetrated by the Bush-Cheney gang. Was this also
her attraction for the voters in Louisiana, Arkansas, and West Virginia? We can be pretty
sure it was not the “black vote,” in this case, since Obama took that. What else was it,
then, if not 9/11?
These states are generally considered “conservative,” are they not? Well, maybe weʼve
got them all wrong. Just think about it. Percentage-wise, more than twice as many people

This article reviews some of US administration’s and defense, intelligence & law enforcement agencies actions in the years and months before 9/11. The public record of government reports and statements so far makes clear that there were many, many warning signs that Al Qaeda was plotting attacks, and that policy makers in these administrations and agencies were aware of this; why didn’t they stop the attacks?

National Security Division Launches New Office of Intelligence
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Patrick Rowan, Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security, today announced the formal launch of the Office of Intelligence within the Justice Department’s National Security Division (NSD). The reorganization creates three new sections within the Office of Intelligence dedicated to the NSD’s three primary intelligence related functions – operations, oversight and litigation.
The Department of Justice has played a critical role in the nation’s effort to prevent acts of terrorism and to thwart hostile foreign intelligence activities. Since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Department’s Office of Intelligence Policy and Review (OIPR) has grown dramatically because of the steady increase in the number of applications it has handled under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) in an effort to ensure that Intelligence Community agencies have the authority necessary to conduct intelligence operations.
(CNN) -- Saudi Arabia could have helped the United States prevent al Qaeda's 2001 attacks on New York and Washington if American officials had consulted Saudi authorities in a "credible" way, the kingdom's former ambassador said in a documentary aired Thursday.
The comments by Prince Bandar bin Sultan are similar to the remarks this week by Saudi King Abdullah that suggested Britain could have prevented the July 2005 train bombings in London if it had heeded warnings from Riyadh.
Speaking to the Arabic satellite network Al-Arabiya on Thursday, Bandar -- now Abdullah's national security adviser -- said Saudi intelligence was "actively following" most of the September 11, 2001, plotters "with precision."
"If U.S. security authorities had engaged their Saudi counterparts in a serious and credible manner, in my opinion, we would have avoided what happened," he said.
An excerpt from a Ralph Schoenman speech on the false flag aspects of the events of September 11, 2001.
should say 175, not 75 .....
Episcopalian Priest and 911 truther Frank Morales argued on Guns and Butter that the next revolution will be global. Elites want a global government, therefore the revolution will transcend borders. It may start in a particular locale but will inevitably spread worldwide.
The goal of the “new left”, from my vantage point, is to create a decentralized network of self-governing communities federated horizontally rather than supporting a massive pyramidal technocracy or “global communist state”.
The goal of paleoconservatives is state sovereignty. There is a common thread here. Both factions – if they can be called factions (I dislike the term) – believe in a certain degree of decentralization; we should build on this.
We do not want global government.
Fundamental disagreements arise over issues like democracy, capital accumulation, cooperation vs. competition, institutional hierarchy, the role of the state (if any) and so forth, but when it comes to issues like individual rights, peace, justice and eliminating the parasitic elite, we’re all basically on the same page.
That word “basically” encompasses a thousand conflicts. It is false to say that the “left/right” paradigm is non-existent--comforting but fallacious. It still exists, but in a mutated and highly fungible form. The sham is in the FAKE left/right paradigm, ie demorats and rethuglicans and the meaningless wedge issues they wave in front of us like kidnapper’s candy, never intending to solve said issues in the first place.
