means and motive


BAE Systems has on its board William Schneider Jr. who is also connected with
International Planning Services, Inc.: President
G2 Satellite Solutions: Advisory board
Defense Forecasts International: Member, Board of Directors
Defense Group, Inc.(DGI): Member, Board of Directors

Schneider was a signatory to 7 of the 13 most commonly referenced letters and statements which outline the goals espoused in the Project for a New American Century...the neocon manifesto.

One of these letters, written within 9 days after 9/11 states, in part,
"A serious and victorious war on terrorism will require a large increase in defense spending. Fighting this war may well require the United States to engage a well-armed foe, and will also require that we remain capable of defending our interests elsewhere in the world. We urge that there be no hesitation in requesting whatever funds for defense are needed to allow us to win this war."

Then in Jan 2003,
"To rebuild, transform, and man our military adequately for its many missions and responsibilities, defense spending will need to be increased by an additional $70 to $100 billion."
