Happy Thanksgiving...

I am thankful for intelligent voices of reason...

Peter Lance, Crisscrossed
Peter’s venom spewed at Patrick Fitzgerald is particularly crazy. Consider the following claim by Lance:
How was it that Fitzgerald, the man Vanity Fair described as the bin Laden "brain," possessing "scary smart" intelligence, had not connected the dots and ordered the same kind of "perch" or "plant" to watch Sphinx that the Bureau had used against Gotti?
Well, for starters, prosecutors in the United States are not like prosecutors in France. Fitzgerald and other junior prosecutors do not have the luxury of waking up each morning and deciding on their own to follow a hunch. Moreover, they normally don’t direct Federal investigations. The investigative part is handled by FBI agents who run field offices. They collect evidence until they have a case put together that enables them to secure an indictment or an arrest warrant and then the prosecutor gets involved. Once again, Peter misses a basic fact that anyone who has watched Law and Order already knows.
What we do know about Patrick Fitzgerald is that he succeeded in putting terrorists behind jail without violating the Constitution or torturing a soul. He deserves better than to be attacked by a lightweight like Lance. <more>
I am thankful for the appeal process... "Very Special and Dashingly Handsome Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald notified the court last night that he plans to appeal U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton's ruling this month on the standards the judge will use for determining which classified materials Libby may use as evidence in defending himself. Libby faces trial on charges of perjury, lying to investigators and obstruction of justice." <more>
And finally, I am thankful for friends, family and turkeys I don't have to cook. :D

Are False Flag Attacks About to be Launched on US Carriers in the Gulf?

Right now there are four major US Battle Carriers in the Persian Gulf? What are they doing there? Are they preparing for a strike on Iran? Or are they being set-up for a false flag attack?

Fitzgerald is one of the best at what he does. Most would try to twist the truth just to use his name. Those the complain are those who know he's smart and knows what he's doing. Others just want to be in print so what better way then to put down Fitz even if their wrong. In Hollywood it's called ride on the back of a star. Judge Walton knows that Fitz is a smart Attorney and respects this ability to fight his case. A real man respects another real man. Both Judge Walton and Fitz have their jobs to do. It's better to question Fitzgerald's actions then ask what the corrupt White House is up to or ask what's Bush lying about now. Funny how Fitz's role changes as team player to leader in the blink of an eye one would think his was born in 1960 fighting cases before he could walk or talk. I guess that's next for the wanta be reporter.

We know you weren't making the decisions and certain FBI agents were getting shut down in their own inquiries.

We know who was warned repeatedly before 9/11, who chose to ignore it, and who lied about it.

BTW, "Criminal Intent" on CBS, a show about FBI profiling, did a story about Git-mo and terrorism last night. The difference between using torture tactics or listening and using one's brain to figure out the problem.

It showed the human side and how messed up everything can become from blow back from both sides.

"Numbers" and "Shark" are good shows too dealing with the FBI and prosecutors.

*Peter Lance was one of the first voices outspoken about the notorious Presidential Daily Briefing which warned of the pending terrorist attacks. Lance, who worked with The Jersey Girls, without whom the investigation never would have occurred, found it “reprehensible that Bush administration would obstruct the investigation which pertains directly to US security…and they’re stonewalling at every turn”*

A belated Good afternoon America and uncle sam!

Thought I'd already posted this comment, but forgot while I was logging on to the new beta version.

Here in the UK, we eat Turkey at Christmas, during "the holiday", as you call it. We used to eat goose, but the practice of eating Turkey was imported from America last century.

I'll be giving special thanks when the men who really killed Kennedy (and LHO wasn't one of them), MLK, RFK, JFK JR and his companions, the hundred of material witnesses to the Kennedy assassination, who framed EMK at Chappaquiddick, and who carried out the 9/11 attacks, and, on this side of the Atlantic, killed Princess Diana and her boyfriend, suicided Dr David Kelly and carried out the London 7/7 bombings have been exposed, though I doubt it will happen this side of the Second Coming.

Hope you have time during the festivities to read the article below.

It's Time to Re-Open the Investigation of RFK and JFK Assassinations

MICHAEL CARMICHAEL
Baltimore Chronicle
Thursday, November 23, 2006

Planning to write a film script about the case, Shane O’Sullivan, an independent researcher, investigated the assassination of RFK. But, O’Sullivan found much more than he had hoped.
On Monday night, the BBC broadcast O’Sullivan’s report on their high-profile programme, "Newsnight." O’Sullivan’s findings shocked many people. Working through an exhaustive analysis of videotapes made at the Ambassador Hotel on the night of RFK’s assassination, O’Sullivan identified three figures as former agents of the CIA. Two of the agents O’Sullivan identified could be seen moving away from the hotel pantry shortly after the shooting of RFK.

Anthony calm down those of us who lived to see the killing of President Kennedy know it was not Lee Harvey Oswald. To many people saw the smoke coming from the back of where people were standing plus the video is released by mistake then destroyed. The hearing that showed the bullets was so stupid no one believed it but no one had the guts to speak out at the time. As the public was in shock it was easier to blame Oswald so the public could have a killer. Now you must remember that Jack Ruby was part of the cover up and notice how easy it was for him to get real close to make sure Oswald died without talking. Just remember this Anthony Jack Ruby was allowed to come in point a gun at a man with security around him and shoot. The Bush twins are surrounded by secret servicemen and get phone/ pocketbook stolen and Bush is open target in Hawaii see the picture. An American President who someone wants killed can be gotten to at anytime and all the security in the world can't protect him. History has a way of telling it's own truth.

US could bomb Iran nuclear sites in 2007: analysts
AFP – November 22, 2006

President George W. Bush could choose military action over diplomacy and bomb Iran's nuclear facilities next year, political analysts in Washington agree.

"I think he is going to do it," John Pike, director of Globalsecurity.org, a military issues think tank, told AFP.

"They are going to bomb WMD facilities next summer," he added, referring to nuclear facilities Iran says are for peaceful uses and Washington insists are really intended to make nuclear bombs, or weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

"It would be a limited military action to destroy their WMD capabilities" added the analyst, believing a US military invasion of Iran is not on the table.

Anthony,

The Web site you posted on the carriers links to another Web site trying to find a link between Alexander Litvinenko and Bobby Kennedy. That story on Litvinenko is totally bogus. Because someone running that Web site is not thinking critically enough to detect the BS on the Litvinenko/Bobby Kennedy story, then then I certainly question any of the other information provided on that site.

BTW, there should be U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf. Check the map. What two places are near Iran?

Folks, although making Bush & Co. paranoid about the bad ole Iranians is great fun for Pres. Putin, Russia letting the Iranians have the bomb is totally stupid. Making money off their nuclear program is not, but letting them have the bomb is. Putin is not that stupid. Look at what Russia did to Muslims in Chechnya (and vice versa). Does anyone really think Russia would help a different group of Muslims have nuclear weapons? Right now, Russia is making a huge pile of money off the Iranians and laughing at Bush behind his back.

You make a number of points in your comment, night owl, that I will need time to give a considered answer to.

I read that article on the Litvinenko/Bobby Kennedy story, and I don't think its author was trying to establish a material link between the two events, but I'll read it again with my critical faculties fully fuinctioning.

For the time being, I'll briefly respond to your point about Iran. The answer to your question as two which two countries are near Iran, the answer is definitely not the US and my own country the UK who have large numbers of troops in Iraq. Presumably, your point is that the US Naval presence in the Gulf is connected to the US and UK military presence in Iraq. My point is that neihter the US nor the UK have any business to be in Iraq in the first place.

A false connection was made between al qaeda and Saddam and lies were told about the presence of WMDs in Iraq to justify an invsasion which was really about controlling the world's oil supply.

The two countries which are near Iran are Iraq and Afghanistan. The US and UK went into Afghanistan not to track down Osama bin Lada (aka Tim Osman), which they failed to do so anyway (probably because he's dead, or on a dialysis machine in a US military hospital in Islamabad or the UAE, but to ensure that Afghanistan is safe to carry the oil over from the Central Asian oilfields.

I believe that they are currently building three oil pipelines from the Iraq oilfields to Israel. That was what the trashing of southern lebanon was partly about, to make nortern Israel safe for oil pipelines and to prevent massive retaliation on the part of Hezbollah should the US and/or Israel attack Iran.

The US is faced with an emerging rival superpower in the far east called China. China is dependent to a large extent for its oil on Iran. The only way the US can manage China is by managing its oil supply. That, I think, is the bush adminstration's main interest in Iran.

As for Iran building a nuclear bomb, maybe we should use our critical faculties to question whether in fact that really is the case, and ask ourselves if this is not a bogus story concocted by the bush adminstration to justify an attack on Iran?

Yup, it is not mention how many criminals and terrorists that Fitz put behind bars. It is aslways focused on the negative instead of the positive. It is interesting of the timing of Lance's book that criticizes Fitz and the upcoming trial of little Irve. Sounds like a smear campaign to discredit Fitz's work as an attorney. But, that is nothing new. I look forward of hearing Fitz's side of the story in the future. In the meantime crisscrossed and Detective Columbo Lance needs to take a chill pill and have some Turkey...

Turkeys pardoned by Bush may not last long. ”The birds, bred for their meaty breasts, quickly grow too heavy to move themselves around, and usually die before the next Thanksgiving. Last year’s winner and its understudy, also pardoned by Bush, were no exception. Billed as the ‘Happiest Turkey on Earth’ at last year’s Disneyland Thanksgiving Day Parade, where it was honorary grand marshal, both ‘Marshmallow’ and its sidekick ‘Yam’ already have passed away, of natural causes, according to a spokeswoman for Disneyland.”

And that is a clue there. If everywhere that the chimpster goes and everything that he says and does spell trouble, even a turkey can't be trusted with the chimpster...

Actually, I agree with a lot of what you have here, Anthony:

For the time being, I'll briefly respond to your point about Iran. The answer to your question as two which two countries are near Iran, the answer is definitely not the US and my own country the UK who have large numbers of troops in Iraq. Presumably, your point is that the US Naval presence in the Gulf is connected to the US and UK military presence in Iraq. My point is that neihter the US nor the UK have any business to be in Iraq in the first place.

**Yep. The US nor the UK had no business going into Iraq like they did.

A false connection was made between al qaeda and Saddam and lies were told about the presence of WMDs in Iraq to justify an invsasion which was really about controlling the world's oil supply.

**Yep. Agreed again and I said that in 2003 but not enough people listened. I also predicted in 2003 that terrorism would bankrupt the US economy, kind of like the Cold War bankrupted the Soviet Union. The jury is still out on that the second one . . .

The two countries which are near Iran are Iraq and Afghanistan. The US and UK went into Afghanistan not to track down Osama bin Lada (aka Tim Osman), which they failed to do so anyway (probably because he's dead, or on a dialysis machine in a US military hospital in Islamabad or the UAE, but to ensure that Afghanistan is safe to carry the oil over from the Central Asian oilfields.

**Yep. Although I kind of disagree with the bin Laden thing. I bet the Pakistan ISI knows where he is but Musharraf will not risk tearing his country apart to hand him over.

I believe that they are currently building three oil pipelines from the Iraq oilfields to Israel. That was what the trashing of southern lebanon was partly about, to make nortern Israel safe for oil pipelines and to prevent massive retaliation on the part of Hezbollah should the US and/or Israel attack Iran.

**I do not know about new pipelines, so I do not know. Israel has been taking pot shots at those folks for years. I believe Israel does not need external reasons from other countries or the U.S. agenda as excuses to go shoot at Hezbollah.

The US is faced with an emerging rival superpower in the far east called China. China is dependent to a large extent for its oil on Iran. The only way the US can manage China is by managing its oil supply. That, I think, is the bush adminstration's main interest in Iran.

**I sort of agree. Because W. Bush & Co. played with the old 1991 playbook with Iraq, I think he's playing with the old 1979 playbook with Iran. It's hard to teach old dogs new tricks or that the world changed while they were asleep at the wheel. Plus, I believe part of Iraq today was revenge at Iraq of the past. What was W. Bush's quote? "Saddam tried to kill my daddy?" I bet there is an element of people wanting revenge on Iran of today from Iran of the past. I remember how people in the United States felt worse than kicked puppies while the Iranians held the embassy people hostage back in 1979-1980.

As for Iran building a nuclear bomb, maybe we should use our critical faculties to question whether in fact that really is the case, and ask ourselves if this is not a bogus story concocted by the bush adminstration to justify an attack on Iran?

**Yep. I will say it again, with feeling. There is no way in hell the Russians who are helping Iran with their energy nuke program let them have the nuclear bomb. And, Russia benefits when there are bad policy decisions in the U.S.

And so does the realization that the JFK assassination won't ever be resolved, as a crime, to the satisfaction of most people mean that we shouldn't care anymore, that Nov. 22 should become just another date on the American calendar, the 33rd shopping day before Christmas?

We'd say an emphatic 'no.'

Ir matters more than ever.

The JFK assassination matters because, regardless of who actually killed him, it lifted up the rock of violence and bloodshed that was the national security state that we opted to become after World War II, the murders and coups and assassination plots from Cuba to Iran to Guatemala to South Vietnam that possibly blew back from Havana to Dealy Plaza and continue to echo today.

The reasons for the National Security Act of '47 are no longer good enough. Americans are slowly waking up to the evil, lies, and illusions done against other nations and against the American people themselves. Evil benefits evil.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The
Iraq war was a boon for
Israel's security, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said on Wednesday, voicing fresh endorsement for a Bush administration sapped by the unpopularity at home of its Middle East policies.

The mid-term election losses of U.S.
President George W. Bush's Republican Party were widely considered a repudiation of his decision to topple Iraq's
Saddam Hussein as part of a vision of democratizing the region and bolstering allies like Israel.

Olmert avoided explicit comment on the Republicans' fortunes during Washington talks with Bush earlier this month. But in a speech to visiting American Jews, Olmert made clear he had few regrets about the changes wrought by the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Keep talking, Olmert--your words, actions, and manipulations are opening millions of eyes that always pitied poor Israel in the past.

About 15 percent of ballots cast on Sarasota's touch-screen machines registered no choice in the bitterly fought congressional race. That percentage was about six times greater than the undervote in the rest of the House district, which spreads into four other counties.

Since Election Day, dozens -- if not hundreds -- of voters have reported problems at the polls. Some say their vote for Jennings never registered after they touched her name. Others say they never saw the congressional race on the machine's screen.

Nov. 23, 2006 — Roughly 3 million Americans live with epilepsy. And a surprising number of them go to jail for it.

Why? Around the country, police officers and bystanders who see someone having a seizure mistake it for disorderly, criminal behavior.

That's what happened to Daniel Beloungea of Pontiac, Mich. On most days Daniel lives the normal life of a 48-year-old single man. But roughly once a week, he loses total control of his body and mind to an epileptic seizure.

snip> When officers couldn't get through to Beloungea they drew their weapons, shocked him with a high-voltage taser, hit him with a baton and wrestled him to the ground. They then handcuffed him and put him in a police car.

Remember when I asked the other day about the college student being Tasered and what if they had an insulin reaction or epilepsy? I posted that because my brother had an insulin reaction at work (they knew he was one, had been told what to do) and yet said he acted drunk, drugged and tried to pour juice in his mouth and yelled because he wouldn't unclench his teeth and the juice ran down his shirt (this was the company's nurse). When a diabetic gets that bad, they have to be injected with glucose.

I know cops have it rough but it seems they have lost any compassion for human life along the way at times. At what point did the words "serve and protect" become meaningless? Sure mistakes happen, but it seems something else is happening in this country.

It would seem the evil-doers in this country and the world are winning.

"SPB, do you look for Fitz' appeal to be over and done with in December?"

That all depends on the judge's schedule.. Since Fitz filed the day before Thanksgiving, nothing will be done until Monday. And Walton is still on vacation. Now, he did tell National Security to get back to him by Dec 1 regarding the classified documents in the Libby trial. Both sides have to figure out which documents will be used in Libby trial and which sections in those documents will be blacken out. Both sides have to decide between now and the starting of the trial. But Walton has to make his decision on Fitz' appeal before the Xmas holidays. Usually the third week of December is less busy for the courts. So, we have to see what Walton will say when he returns. Let's not forget that the defense side submitted their filing on Nov. 21. They are stilll demanding the classified documents are needed for the smurf. They still using the graymail strategy on Fitz.

Also, let's not forget Libby's attorney, Ted Wells, had requested a delay in the smurf's trial a couple of months ago because he had asm upcoming trial in California which he said that it would be a conflict with Libby trial. Walton denied the request after consulting with the California judge. Walton wants the Libby case to go on as schedule despite the appeals and different files of motion in this case. It is up to Walton. But, I do believe that he wants this case to go on as schedule.

BAGHDAD - After three and a half years of occupation, Iraq's medical system has sunk to levels lower than seen during the economic sanctions imposed after the first Gulf war in 1990.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said Iraqis are now extremely vulnerable in their health needs.

"This is well depicted in the morbidity and mortality rates of the population of Iraq, particularly of infants, children and mothers. The majority of Iraqis completely depend on the food Public Distribution System for their nutritional requirements."

The health situation in Iraq has been in constant decline since the beginning of the U.S.-backed UN-imposed sanctions in 1990. Iraqi doctors were reputed to be the best in the Middle East during the 1980's, but now they are short of medicines, medical equipment and funding to maintain the hospitals.

"We were angry with Saddam's government for the poor health situation in the country, but now we wish we could get that back," 55-year-old teacher Ahmed Zaydan from Sadr City in Baghdad told IPS. "There was not enough medical care, but there was something that one could live with and the private sector market was cheap. We were hoping for the change of regime to improve our lives, but the result is that we practically have no government healthcare."

Poppy and son should be so proud. Wonder how much money they earned for the death of every man, woman and child?

How many years will it take before the mass graves are dug up and people trying to identify their loved ones, except they won't be blaming Saddam this time, will they?
