NANAIMO, B.C. (CP) - B.C. Ferries will beef up security in accordance with Transport Canada requirements across the country but stop short of airport-style measures that would slow down travel, says the company president.
"What's going to happen is there'll be continual upgrades to the security system," David Hahn said Tuesday, adding all ferry systems in Canada will be affected by guidelines to be released in the fall. "If it's appropriate we will move to more aggressive things like screening but I don't think there's any master plan to screen every passenger," Hahn said.
He said there may be random security checks of some people, "not any kind of profiling."

September 11 suspect gets Guantanamo hearing

U.S. military officials have held initial hearings for three terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay, including the alleged mastermind of the September 11 attacks on the United States, the Pentagon said on Monday.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said a three-member panel examined the case of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed at a closed hearing on Saturday at the U.S. military prison camp on Cuba.

Mohammed is among 14 prisoners identified by U.S. authorities as "high-value" terrorism suspects and transferred to Guantanamo last September from secret CIA prisons abroad.

The hearings to determine whether the suspects meet U.S. authorities' definition of an enemy combatant began on Friday, the Pentagon said.

The cases of two suspects -- Ramzi bin al Shaibah, a Yemeni also accused of involvement in the September 11 attacks, and alleged senior al Qaeda figure Abu Faraj al Libi of Libya -- were examined on Friday, Whitman said.

Hollywood director and documentary film maker Aaron Russo has gone in-depth on the astounding admissions of Nick Rockefeller, who personally told him that the elite's ultimate goal was to create a microchipped population and that the war on terror was a hoax, Rockefeller having predicted an "event" that would trigger the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan eleven months before 9/11.

Rockefeller also told Russo that his family's foundation had created and bankrolled the women's liberation movement in order to destroy the family and that population reduction was a fundamental aim of the global elite.

For the Sake of Entertainment

It has been just over five years since the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

Five years since our world changed. Many have said that it's just too soon.Americans have been made very aware of the many threats which could at any time dessimate their currrent way of life

Yet many Americans somehow find entertainment in in these visions projected upon them by the very people who desperately wish to control their thoughts and minds.

 

I'm not sure if you have noticed but we ae are entering the 6th season of the highly touted and most watched television shows probably in history. I know you have all seen it. I am talking about 24. Staring our friend Jack Bauer.

Pat Robertson Predicts 'Mass Killing'

I heard about this yesterday and was surprised it wasn't posted here when I signed on today. I guess its easy to predict these things if you have the inside track. This will teach the voting public to vote out the Republicans thereby opening the door for terrorism. I guess we need really need Bush, who also claims to talk to God, to protect us from those pesky terrorists.

In Annual Predictions, Pat Robertson Says God Told Him About Terrorist Attack on U.S. in 2007

In what has become an annual tradition of prognostications, religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Tuesday God has told him that a terrorist attack on the United States would result in "mass killing" late in 2007.

"I'm not necessarily saying it's going to be nuclear," he said during his news-and-talk television show "The 700 Club" on the Christian Broadcasting Network. "The Lord didn't say nuclear. But I do believe it will be something like that."

Robertson said God told him during a recent prayer retreat that major cities and possibly millions of people will be affected by the attack, which should take place sometime after September.

Breaking News - Egyptian Police Arrest American, and others, for Terror Plot

This story is just breaking on MSNBC and CNN - so there are no details yet - but it will be interesting to see exactly who this American is and what he was planning.

He will, of course, be portrayed as another John Walker or Jose Padilla - but - we should look carefully to see if there are any telltales signs that he has any 'connections.'

For example - Nick Berg - the American beheaded in Iraq - it was confirmed shared an email account with Zacarias Moussaoui. The FBI contends to this day that this was simply a bizarre coincidence and Berg had given the password to Moussaoui in a bus terminal where they had met and struck up a friendship.

Sure.

Bizarre coincidences like this deserve to be treated with a certain level of incredulity from the public, and if this "American" arrested in Egypt has even the appearance of being "connected" to any "bizarre coincidence" we need to be prepared to confront it.

Pentagon stepping up propaganda to justify control of Internet in name of "terror"

A nice piece of disinfo in the NY Times today. They are trying to reinforce this image of the intelligence agencies pre-9/11 as a bunch of teenagers working on TRS-80s. A former DIA agent explains how his home computer was better than what US intelligence had:

"Something had gone horribly awry, Burton realized.... This control over the flow of information, as the 9/11 Commission noted in its final report, was a crucial reason American intelligence agencies failed to prevent those attacks. All the clues were there — Al Qaeda associates studying aviation in Arizona, the flight student Zacarias Moussaoui arrested in Minnesota, surveillance of a Qaeda plotting session in Malaysia — but none of the agents knew about the existence of the other evidence. The report concluded that the agencies failed to “connect the dots.”"

This is obviously intended to justify the Pentagon's announcement that it is stepping up its online propaganda.

Typical of this propaganda campaign is a story in yesterday's Houston Chronicle on a recent military report, The Militant Ideology Atlas. The report downplays the importance of catching Bin Laden, and instead claims, according to the Chronicle,

Fighting terror with torture: As Bush determines what is acceptable, Israel’s decisions offer insight.

Fighting terror with torture
As Bush determines what is acceptable, Israel’s decisions offer insight.

Mohammed Barghouthi, a Palestinian Authority official interrogated by Israel for several weeks last summer, demonstrates the position he was held in during questioning.

JERUSALEM | Long before the Bush administration launched its war on terrorism, opened secret detention centers or debated the wisdom of harsh interrogation techniques, Israel wrestled with similar questions about protecting itself.

President Bush soon must prepare an executive order that will outline what methods the CIA can use under a law signed last week. Backers of the law contend that their measure will prevent the use of the most contentious methods, such as “water-boarding.” But the law gives the president broad discretion to decide what tactics to approve, and Israel’s experience could provide guidance.

Since Israel’s Supreme Court curbed the use of extreme techniques in 1999, human rights studies suggest that interrogators are relying more on psychological tricks, informants and electronic surveillance to solicit information.

"The problem lies in the unwillingness to recognize that your own terrorism is terrorism" a Q&A of Chomsky

Ex: What is the role of the intellectual when dealing with imperialism and are the intellectuals doing they job?

Ch: Unfortunately, intellectuals are doing their historic job. The historic role of intellectuals if you look, unfortunately, as far back as you go has been to support power systems and to justify their atrocities. So the article you read in the National Post for the production of vulgar Stalinist connoisseurs, that's what intellectuals usually do as far back as you go.

If you go back to the Bible, there's a category of people who were called prophets, a translation of an obscure word, they were intellectuals, they were what we would call dissident intellectuals; criticising the evil king, giving geopolitical analysis, calling for the moral treatment of orphans, decent behaviour. They were dissident intellectuals. Were they treated well? They were prisoned and driven into the dessert and so on, they were the fringe. The people who were treated well were the ones who centuries later, like in the gospel, were called false prophets. So it goes through history. The actual role of the intellectual has been supportive of power.

Should they do that? Of course not; they should be searching for truth, they should be honest, they should be supporting freedom and justice and there are some who do it. There is a fringe who do it, but they're not treated well. They are performing the task that intellectuals ought to perform.

Police Had Second Mole in Toronto Terror Plot

The Globe and Mail revealed today that the RCMP had a second mole stage-managing the alleged terror plot in Toronto this past summer.

Police had second mole in terror plot

"A first mole, Mubin Shaikh, has already declared he was involved in a terrorist training camp, attended mostly by teenagers. But the second man, who was not acknowledged publicly until now, played an equal, if not more important, role.

Just as Mr. Shaikh was useful to police and the spies at the beginning stages of the plot, the second informant was crucial toward the end. It's believed that he put key suspects in touch with a police agent — possibly himself — who claimed to be able to purchase tonnes of ammonium nitrate fertilizer.

By law the man, whose university studies included chemistry, can't be identified. But it's expected he will be an important prosecution witness when the case goes to trial.

None of the allegations against the 18 youths and men arrested in the sweep have been tested in court."
