Cracking the Matrix, Part II: Our Military/Industrial Spy Services
Robert Mueller, the United States Department of Justice attorney who allowed the largest criminal enterprise investigation in law enforcement history to fold with minimal prosecutions, has been the George W Bush appointed FBI Director for this past ten full years.
Mueller was FBI Director when Alberto Gonzales was appointed Attorney General. Attorney General Gonzales, employed by a firm representing Novation Corp prior to his appointment, promptly moved to break up a Department of Justice five member team investigating crimes at Novation. Two investigators, Thelma Colbert and Shannon Ross, suddenly were dead. The other three? One fired, one resigned, and one [must presume the snitch] reassigned. The Novation investigation had been quashed.
The sudden ‘coincidence’ of two ‘natural’ deaths of DoJ investigators could be passed off as just that, ‘coincidence’, were it not for the fact those deaths attended breaking up a team of investigators coming too close to their new boss.
It’s not everyday spy services come under scrutiny for poisonings, in a world of tit for tat clandestine assassination, it is a subject of taboo and denial. But time to time this cowardly habit of surreptitious murders, often mimicking inexplicable but natural seeming deaths, breaks into the open. Typically this happens when it’s politically expedient to embarrass or discredit a hostile government or when a murder had been botched in some sense [see 3, 4, & 5 spy agency assassination by poison linked articles].
A rational conclusion, relating to domestic assassination by intelligence agencies, would be it is not only governments like North Korea engage in murders of people who threaten their power corrupt. In the case of the [now dead] investigators pursuing crimes at Novation, one need look no farther than the connection to a former CIA Director named George Herbert Walker Bush whose son Jeb is closely associated with the criminal enterprise subject to the investigation shut down by Attorney General Gonzales.
Now, some might say ‘this is all a bit of wonderful speculation’ based on a remarkable string of coincidence, and I have no problem with that, because this is all about painting a larger portrait of impunity and murders ordered from on high, and we have yet to arrive at ‘the preponderance of the evidence.’ It follows, we should now examine a R.I.C.O. slam dunk case of ‘the chickens come home to roost’ to quote an expression used by Malcolm X.
Present Attorney General Eric Holder and current FBI Director Robert Mueller were colleagues at the District of Columbia United States Attorney’s office, Mueller in charge of homicides division, about the time Bush buddy [billionaire] Carl Lindner was in big trouble over his Chiquita Corporation having provided $1.7 million in cash (and machine guns) to the right wing AUC para-military death squads in a mass murder operation run from Alvaro Uribe’s ranch in Columbia.
Holder was promoted to Deputy Attorney General, a position from which he proceeded to engineer a legal circumstance that would protect the Chiquita corporate executives from ‘murder for hire’ charges under the R.I.C.O statute. The identities of the Chiquita culprits have been sealed in the arrangement put together by Holder, effectively handing a ‘get out of jail free’ card to people who could and should have been prosecuted for murder.
Carl Lindner’s reputation as a owner, is that of a ‘hands on’ management style. A big Bush supporter and right wing extremist, it should come as no surprise the murderers who should have been convicted under R.I.C.O but are protected by Holder at the Department of Justice instead, were responsible for the deaths of some 4,000 people on the political left, people sympathetic to unions and a fair wage and that simply was not good for Chiquita’s profit line. That the AUC para-militaries were invested in the cocaine trade and vector with CIA operatives, is simply par for the course.
“But Uribe, since he first ran for office, has also been dogged by the fact that paramilitary groups grew dramatically during his term as governor in the northwestern state of Antioquia, from 1995 to 1997. During that time, he helped spearhead the creation of Convivirs, legal vigilante groups. Some were later denounced for having morphed into paramilitary death squads or for serving as fronts for paramilitary warlords…”
“As the result of investigations that began in 2006, 32 members of [the Columbian] Congress have been arrested and about 30 others are being formally investigated for ties to paramilitary groups that killed thousands of civilians, infiltrated state institutions and trafficked cocaine to the United States…” [see 5, & 6 Uribe/AUC linked articles]
I expect it is fair to state, that when the people who possess tools such as the Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act, under which it had been their responsibility these persistent murders should be prosecuted, rather bury the cases and shelve the law instead, all the while looking the other way when investigators deaths shield their boss and friends and friends family from prosecutions, and the beneficiaries of these cover-ups are consistently ultra-conservative multi-national corporate billionaires with intelligence agency, right wing para-military death squad and narcotics trafficking ties, one can begin to make a case for law enforcement and intelligence agencies being little more than enforcers for religious extremist board directors, at the pinnacles of capitalism. Of course, this is all just fine if Jesus approves, correct? Some of us don’t think so.
When narcissism is coupled to power, and we have seen this throughout the history of Western culture, the people who determine for societies what will be moral or, ethically acceptable behaviors, are the people least likely to grasp their own moral or ethical inversions. And there is little one person or any one group of persons can do with multi-billion of dollars or more in pocket, except to impact many peoples lives. Or the lives of entire nations and history.
Fifty years after the fact, several eye witness describe the shooting down of Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane in the Congo and the evidence squarely points to intelligence agencies taking their instructions from corporate board rooms concerned with mineral deposits and American/British mining conglomerates interests in profits over peace.
In the ensuing years, in Africa, corrupt dictators and fake democracies have bent over backwards to please those mining conglomerates. As the actions of multi-national corporations are necessarily concerned with geo-politics and go where the action [money] is, it cannot come as a surprise that, with the folding of the Soviet Union, these non-living legal entities sitting on mountains of cash, would move on and push into Central Asia, where Azerbaijan is a poster child for hosting a who’s who of criminal personalities as evidenced in the composition of the United States-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce:
▪ James Addison Baker III: Cheney/Nigeria Scandal
▪ Zbigniew Brzezinski: War Monger, Bilderberg Group
▪ Henry Kissinger: Pinochet Coup, Bilderberg Group
▪ Brent Scowcroft: BCCI Scandal
▪ John Sununu: Bush I Travelgate Scandal
▪ Lloyd Bentsen: Beltway Bandits Scandal
▪ Dick Cheney: Iran-Contra & Blackwater Murder Ring
▪ James A. Baker, IV: Partner, Baker Botts, L.L.P.
▪ Tim Cejka, President: ExxonMobil Exploration Co.
▪ Michael Griffin: International Operations, Devon Energy
▪ Jahangir Hajiyev: International Bank of Azerbaijan
▪ Arne Holhjem: Caspian Region ConocoPhilips
▪ Greg Saunders: Director, International Affairs, BP
▪ Diana Sedney: International Relations for CHEVRON
▪ Gregory K. Williams: Strategic Security for Coca Cola
▪ Richard Armitage: Plame Leak, CIA Phoenix Murders
▪ Howard Chase: International Affairs, BP
Given the personalities above, all board director level multi-national corporate personages, sitting together with Azerbaijan’s most powerful banker, one cannot be surprised the Pentagon would have, by bringing in the United States Geological Survey, wet their pants with glee in the person of the now CIA Director David Patreaus, over the one trillion dollar raw minerals assay in Afghanistan:
“There is stunning potential here,” Gen. David H. Petraeus, commander of the United States Central Command, said in an interview on Saturday. “There are a lot of ifs, of course, but I think potentially it is hugely significant…”
A trillion dollars is a lot of money to corrupt and murder for. With a history of covering up epidemic rape, and murder of women troops disguised as soldier ‘suicide’ related to covering up corruption in his command structure, General Patreaus is the perfect [extremist] ‘Christian Soldier’ to head up the CIA and stay on top of the job.
The CIA has a long history of using Christian missionaries as ‘assets’, which the agency both admits and denies. They admit they’ve done it in the past and deny they do it now. Coincidental to this, the drug cartel with professional commandos called ‘Los Zetas’ or ‘the crazy ones’ trace their exceptional military skills to a hotbed of Christian zealotry: Fort Bragg, North Carolina and the Special Forces that originally trained them in a CIA associated program. This coincide with drug cartels adopting what had been fringe White extremist Christian theology and literature more commonly found in the circles of Rick Perry and the lunatic religious right.
Now, with a Los Zetas breakaway group [they multiply like amoebas] named “The Knights Templar” the Matrix now returns us to Erik Prince and Blackwater, which the Nation has kindly provided us with Federal Court transcripts [excerpt] detailing a very ‘Catholic’ medieval theology:
“Erik Prince, may have murdered or facilitated the murder of individuals who were cooperating with federal authorities investigating the company. The former employee also alleges that Prince “views himself as a Christian crusader tasked with eliminating Muslims and the Islamic faith from the globe,” and that Prince’s companies “encouraged and rewarded the destruction of Iraqi life
“”Using his various companies, [Prince] procured and distributed various weapons, including unlawful weapons such as sawed off semi-automatic machine guns with silencers, through unlawful channels of distribution…
“Mr. Prince intentionally deployed to Iraq certain men who shared his vision of Christian supremacy, knowing and wanting these men to take every available opportunity to murder Iraqis. Many of these men used call signs based on the Knights of the Templar, the warriors who fought the Crusades…”
What do ‘The Knights Templars’ [nee Zetas] and Eric Prince have in common? Special Operations Forces training & arms trafficking, Knights Templar Christian identity tied to incredibly indiscriminate and wanton murder, for certain, and likely narcotics trafficking on the part of Prince as well, via his [now divested] Blackwater ‘worldwide’ aviation. This is real globalization, folks.
Just a bit more on the Erik Prince criminal enterprise:
The CIA admits [a pet project of Dick Cheney] it hired Blackwater to create a worldwide assassination program but out of the other side of its mouth, the agency denies it was ever employed:
“U.S. officials familiar with the targeted-killing program said that Blackwater’s involvement was limited in scope and duration, and that the arrangement ended several years before CIA Director Leon E. Panetta killed the program two months ago.
“The program was kept secret from Congress for nearly eight years before Panetta told lawmakers about it in June. CIA officials have emphasized that the program was never operational and that it did not lead to the capture or killing of a single terrorism suspect…”
But that’s not what Seymour Hersh had to say:
“The Central Intelligence Agency was very deeply involved in domestic activities against people they thought to be enemies of the state. Without any legal authority for it. They haven’t been called on it yet. That does happen.
“Right now, today, there was a story in the New York Times that if you read it carefully mentioned something known as the Joint Special Operations Command — JSOC it’s called. It is a special wing of our special operations community that is set up independently. They do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days, they reported directly to the Cheney office. They did not report to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff or to Mr. [Robert] Gates, the secretary of defense. They reported directly to him.
“Congress has no oversight of it. It’s an executive assassination ring essentially, and it’s been going on and on and on. Just today in the Times there was a story that its leaders, a three star admiral named [William H.] McRaven, ordered a stop to it because there were so many collateral deaths.
“Under President Bush’s authority, they’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving. That’s been going on, in the name of all of us…”
Where is Erik Prince these days? Running a ‘Christians only’ mercenary force for a USA ally in the Emirates, with mercenaries hired out of Columbia and the Prince legacy goes on.
So, where does Tea Party darling Rick Perry fit into the cartel wars on our border? Why, it would appear he is ordering his Texas Department of Public Safety not to investigate judges, bankers and politicians (himself) taking Los Zetas money and attending Los Zetas parties.
“”We … had information on campaign fundraisers and parties in La Union that the cartel held for officials from New Mexico and El Paso. A lot of important people were at those parties, such as bankers, judges, and law enforcement officers.
“Dutton and Gonzales said small aircraft regularly drop drug loads on ranches or other properties along the U.S.-Mexico border, and that some U.S. law officers escort the loads to the next stop.
“The two whistle-blowers said that drug cartels have managed to obtain computer access codes to U.S. surveillance systems that let them see where and when Border Patrol agents are monitoring the border.
“They also alleged that drug cartels have given big donations to politicians, which are unreported, to influence appointments of key law enforcement officers.
“Some of these allegations were contained in a letter that Dutton provided to Gov. Rick Perry, who is seeking the Republican Party’s nomination for president in the 2012 election.
“Our office received the letter and referred it to the appropriate agency, which was the Department of Public Safety,” Josh Havens, a spokesman for the Texas governor’s office, said last Friday.
“Steven McCraw, director of the Texas Department of Public Safety and a former FBI agent from El Paso, said last Friday that he was interested in talking to Dutton. Then, about a half-hour later, McCraw said that Dutton had no credibility.
“We looked into it and there was nothing there,” McCraw said. Dutton said in response, “How can they say there was nothing when they didn’t even look at what I have?” Dutton said he has videos, telephone records, and other documents gathered over the 18 months he worked with the FBI. “The DPS never asked to see any of it,” Dutton said.
“Dutton said other informants told him that the Zetas drug cartel has a high-level member in Las Cruces whose wife holds a non-law enforcement job in the “DA’s office,” referring to the Doña Ana County District Attorney’s Office. “The FBI was provided with all this information, and I guess that’s why they’re now saying that we’re crazy,” Dutton said.
“Dutton and Gonzales said their frustration over the lack of investigations has compelled them to turn to U.S. lawmakers and to Judicial Watch for help…” [See 1, 2, 3 & 4 Special Operations Forces/CIA/Cartel/Border operations linked articles]
What did Chris Farrell, director of investigations at Judicial Watch have to say?
“Law enforcement should investigate…”
Huh? Well, I guess flipping the problem back into the laps of the former undercover agents who CANNOT get either the Federal authorities (FBI) or the State authorities (Texas Departments of Public Safety) to investigate, should be no surprise coming from this guy:
“Chris is a native of Long Island, New York. He was a Distinguished Military Graduate from Fordham University with a B.A. in History, whereupon he accepted a Regular Army Commission and served as a Military Intelligence Officer – specializing in Counterintelligence and Human Intelligence. Chris is a graduate of the Military Intelligence Officers Basic and Advanced Courses, the U.S. Army Advanced Counterintelligence Training Course, the Combined Arms Services Staff School of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Military Operations Training Course, and the Haus Rissen Institut für Politik und Wirtschaft in Hamburg, Germany.
He has pursued additional graduate studies in National Security Studies, specializing in unconventional warfare and terrorism. Following command and staff assignments that included three tours of duty in the Federal Republic of Germany, and one tour at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, Chris returned to civilian life as a contractor to the defense and intelligence communities. He also provided management and training consulting services to non-profit organizations, and was active in the establishment of a small, private, co-ed Christian high school where he both taught and served as director…”
And the two REALLY big time extremist Christian/Rick Perry fans/Tea Party funders? Billionaire industrialists the Koch [pronounced ‘cock’] Brothers? Now, the Matrix brings us via the Tea Party to Iran:
“Koch Industries has spent more than $50 million to lobby in Washington since 2006, according to the Center for Responsive Politic. The brothers have backed a foundation that has trained thousands of Tea Party activists
“Internal company records show that Koch Industries used its foreign subsidiary to sidestep a U.S. trade ban barring American companies from selling materials to Iran. Koch-Glitsch offices in Germany and Italy continued selling to Iran until as recently as 2007, the records show.
And just as quick as you could read the preceding segment, the FBI [via the Matrix] and Iran brings us to the cartel wars on the Texas border, connecting the dots concerning two recent big ‘terror’ busts by the FBI involving a loser who could not competently chew gum and tie his shoes in the same moment (model airplane bomber) or in the case of the recent so-called Iranian assassination plot, could not get it together to wear matched socks:
“His socks would not match,” said Tom Hosseini, a former college roommate and friend. “He was always losing his keys and his cellphone. He was not capable of carrying out this plan…”
We have a ten years history of the FBI creating terror plots and pitching them to fools, losers, the disaffected, and the young and impressionable. Why wouldn’t our other intelligence agencies adopt the modus operandi? The former top Middle East analyst for the Defense Intelligence Agency point blank makes the case:
“Why on earth would they create a situation in which they had to rely on this untested, untrained, unguided, and uncontrolled asset rather than their own people?” wrote Col. Pat Lang (ret.), the Defense Intelligence Agency’s former top Middle East and South Asia analyst on his Sic Semper Tyrannis blog.
Calling the government’s case “trash”, Lang added that, “The overwhelming likelihood is that this is someone’s ‘information operation’ intended to condition public attitudes for some purpose.” [see 2, 3, 4 & 5 FBI created terror plot linked articles]
So, while we all have been distracted with domestic and border ‘terror’ created in both fantasy and reality by our own agencies, what is up back in Afghanistan?
The Russians had given the precise details on the location of 150 heroin processing labs in Afghanistan to drug investigators and the American military commanders stonewalled [delayed] any action against those labs for months on end.
How do you suppose Robert Gates and General Patreaus managed to bring all of the heroin out of Afghanistan? You can hear Patreaus telling Gates right here:
The narcissistic, privileged, WHITE Constitutional Law Professor Obama, a man who had no grounding in his youth, no family stability, no solid, principled or ethical male role model in a father’s role and never had to learn to think on his feet to survive, rather had his reality shaped by a single White mother who might have more realistically told Obama ‘you can grow up to be the worst possible President of the United States.’ This man without principled ethics, is the perfect Manchurian candidate in a social sense, when surrounded by career/habitual criminals in the form of advisors. A narcissist who cannot think on his feet only need be provided a range of criminal options and be allowed to believe he is ‘the man’ while feeding his ego, and he will think he is calling the shots.
Obama is a man who will never think independently, bravely, for you, for me or for any peoples on this planet, in any sense of wider survival. Simply summed up, Obama has no solid convictions rooted in social depth perception. Surrounded by criminal personalities, Barack Obama is no more fit to lead than Richard Nixon or George W Bush. In fact he is worse, if only because Obama hasn’t the career criminal’s honed sense of self-restraint, also known as a survival instinct. Meanwhile, career criminals Attorney General Holder, FBI Director Mueller and CIA Director Patreaus et al, are the ‘Worm Tongues’ whispering lies in the ear of our president. I wouldn’t even want to think about Hillary Clinton, her crimes could fill a library.
