In a very disturbing but great article written by Peter Dale Scott at Project Censored several topics are covered including Halliburton contracts awarded in 2006 for building “detention camps” in the US”:
“Halliburton’s subsidiary KBR (formerly Kellogg, Brown and Root) announced on January 24, 2006 that it had been awarded a $385 million contingency contract by the Department of Homeland Security to build detention camps in the United States. The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to augment existing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) Program facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs.”

I guess these are what Ashcroft called for as Attorney General soon after 9/11 as documented by NY’s The Village Voice News. Ironically, Ashcroft is now working as the Ethics Chief to Blackwater. Wow. (Article continues past the following image)
See a story here from the Daily KOS which has the official court documents linked.
Have you heard of a “Delayed Notice Warrant”? They were revamped under the Patriot Act in order to fight “terrorism”.
Did you ever read any Tom Clancy books? Or maybe you saw Harrison Ford in the movies Clear and Present Danger or Patriot Games. There was a time when I would go into mourning because I would have 11 months to wait for Clancy’s next book to come out. The main character Jack Ryan, a brilliant analyst for the CIA, was tougher and smarter than Jack Bower ever was! I liked Ryan’s colleague and friend CIA operative “Clark” as well. Steve Pieczenik is the inspiration for BOTH characters!
Pieczenik is a 27 times New York Times Best selling author.
He received his Medical Degree from Cornell. He has a Psychiatry degree from Harvard. And a PhD in political science from MIT.
Pieczenik served as a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State and/or Senior Policy Planner, under Secretaries Henry Kissinger, Cyrus Vance, George Schultz and James Baker. Which also means he has served under 5 different US Presidents dating back to Nixon.
He is a fellow with the Council on Foreign Relations.
He has not only had white papers published in scientific medical journals, but has also written medical textbooks.
Dr. Pieczenik was the principal International Crisis Manager and Hostage Negotiator under Secretaries Kissinger and Vance. During this time he developed conflict resolution techniques that were instrumental in saving over five hundred hostages in different terrorist episodes, including the Hanafi Moslem Seizure in Washington, DC, the TWA Croatian Hijacking, the Aldo Moro Kidnapping, the JRA Hijacking, the PLO Hijacking, and many other incidents involving terrorists such as Idi Amin, Muammar Quaddafi, Carlos, FARC, Abu Nidal and Saddam Hussein.
Dr. Pieczenik helped develop negotiation strategies for major U.S.- Soviet arms control summits under the Reagan administration. He was also involved in advising senior officials on important psycho-political dynamics and conflict mediation strategies for President Carter’s successful Camp David Peace Conference.
In 1991 Dr. Pieczenik was a chief architect of the Cambodian Peace Conference in Paris.
He is currently an advisor to the Department of Defense.
Dr. Pieczenik also was instrumental in the formation of The Delta Force.
Have you ever in your life heard a resume like that? Does that sound like someone who is likely to believes in UFO’s or Black Helicopters?
In a series of hard-hitting and quite honestly distressing, interviews on the Alex Jones radio show this week. If his claims are true…it will test the very fabric our country is made of!
During the past week Dr. Pieczenik has boldly proclaimed that not only has Osama Bin Laden been dead for several years of kidney failure and/or Marfan’s Syndrome…but that he is ready and willing to testify before a grand jury that a high level United States General informed him 9/11 was a stand down/false flag operation and that Bush Jr, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Rice should all be tried for war crimes.
For fair balance here is an article from Forbes about the Pieczenik interviews. However, Forbes fails to list several important parts of his resume, AND they fail to report he actually went on Alex’s show in 2002 and made the same claims about Bin Laden’s death likely happening just before or just after 9/11.
What is a stand down/false flag? Here is an article by the New York Times concerning de-classified documents released by the NSA (National Security Agency) about the incident used to justify the US’s large-scale escalation into the Vietnam War, The Gulf of Tonkin Incident.
“Historian Robert J. Hanyok wrote his top-secret assertions that NSA intelligence officers “deliberately skewed” the evidence passed on to policy makers and the public to falsely suggest that North Vietnamese ships had attacked American destroyers on Aug. 4, 1964.”
Two other historical events that have been interpreted as potential “false flag” events were when Nero blamed the burning of Rome on the Christians, and the subsequent intense persecution of Christians that followed. The explosion of the USS Maine being blamed on Spain, also launched the US into the Spanish-American War.
I have never believed any of the claims of the 9/11 conspiracies and I still do not. And let me be clear I am not asking you to either. However, it is fact that our intelligence community have used false flag events in the past to stoke the American patriotic fires and launch us into war before. And when a man with credentials such as Dr. Pieczenik says he is ready to testify before a grand jury that a top US General told him 9/11 was a false flag, and that he is concerned the potential for another one is high, I cannot imagine what he would stand to gain by making such a claim if he does not have the proof to back it up. I think we should encourage our elected officials to give him his wish and let him testify. He has everything to lose if he is lying, and it would also do irreparable damage to the credibility of show’s like that of Alex Jones, which I am sure would make many in Washington and the Media jump for joy. Either way, at a time when conspiracy theories are running rampant, to attempt to squash this story now will only cause it to go viral that much faster.
This Fox News story alleges Bin Laden died in December of 2001.
The UK Guardian ran a story of the CIA visiting Bin Laden in an American hospital in Dubai in July of 2001. (click here to read)
Albright suggested Bush had Bin Laden hidden” somewhere, and would pull him out during his re-election campaign. Congressman McDermott alleged the same thing. Teresa Heinz-Kerry made a vague assertion during her husband’s campaign as well. Click here to read WND article.
Benazir Bhutto, former Pakistani Prime Minister, alleged Bin Laden had been killed by Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh and then herself was murdered shortly thereafter. Click here to read.
However if you prefer the latest story…First there was a valiant 40 minute shoot out with an armed Bin Laden returning fire (click here)
Then the Washington Times reported version 2.0 and stated “we now know” he was unarmed, but after “resisting” by using his wife as a human shield was killed. So not only did we shoot an unarmed assailant, but we got rid of the best hopes we had of true terrorist intel we have had since 9/11. Click here for version 2.0 of the story.
Version 3.0 stated that “All the President’s men” participated in a live “Bin Laden Raid Watch Party”, then CIA director Panetta says the cameras were not even on, and Hillary just had a bad case of allergies in the photo-op. That is soooo Clintonesqe isn’t it. Click here for Panetta story, Click here to read allergy story)
Version 4.0 says Bin Laden was unarmed, and NOT using a woman as a shield, click here.
Even some in the mainstream are starting to doubt like Garance Franke-Ruta, senior editor at The Atlantic, click here.
The ONLY point of this tale that has remained consistent is the fact that the body was dumped in the DEEP BLUE SEA, never to be seen again.
Either way he’s dead. WATCH THE OTHER HAND.
Obama wasted no time in claiming the world was now safer with Bin Laden dead. (Click here)
We were being warned of imminent reprisals by Al Qaeda almost hourly. The news is full of these stories. Whether it is raising the terror alert level, or buried nukes all over Europe.
The world is a safer place…yet CBS on May 3rd reports “Security Checkpoints Near Soft Targets May Soon Become The Norm”. Now the TSA will stick their hands down your pants at the mall as well. (click here for CBS story)
The world is a safer place… yet Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif, now wants “black box” recorders in all cars, to tax us by the mile! (click here to read)
Or… maybe Obama just wanted additional political capital to further other parts of his agenda, like climate change?? Climate Change?
New Mexico Governor, Bill Richardson, says Bin Laden’s death should allow Obama to push through climate legislation. Click here to read. Incredible!
I would agree with former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for the Reagan Administration, Paul Craig Roberts, that there are probably MANY agendas being served by the Bin Laden “narrative”;
further justification for torture of pow’s, further weakening of Pakistan, and growing Home Land Security just to name a few.
A healthy dose of skepticism about this entire Bin Laden ordeal is healthy, watching what their other hand is doing while they are pinning medals on SEAL’s is mandatory!
Now Bin Laden was actually declared dead at least 9 times…
Madeleine Albright said he was dead: http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Security-Industry/2003/12/17/Albright-says-bin-Laden-comment-was-joke/UPI-84391071694878/
Teresa Heinz Kerry said he was dead:
Rumsfeld alluded to his death:
And now when food and gas prices are increasing every day, the dollar melting down before our eyes, unemployment not improving, the US Credit Rating in jeopardy, China dumping their holdings in US Treasuries etc., etc., etc.,…
Hey there’s any easy solution…let’s announce the death of Bin Laden (whom the former VP said was never suspected of being involved in 9/11), dump the body in the ocean, and frame Pakistan for it! If you do not read any other article in this post read this one from Digital Journal about Rubio calling for “investigations” into Pakistan. The article states:
“Snow: I want to be clear because I’ve heard you say this, and I’ve heard the President say it, but I want you to say it for my listeners, which is that the White House has never argued that Saddam was directly involved in September 11th, correct?
THE VICE PRESIDENT: That’s correct. We had one report early on from another intelligence service that suggested that the lead hijacker, Mohamed Atta, had met with Iraqi intelligence officials in Prague, Czechoslovakia. And that reporting waxed and waned where the degree of confidence in it, and so forth, has been pretty well knocked down now at this stage, that that meeting ever took place. So we’ve never made the case, or argued the case that somehow Osama bin Laden [sic] was directly involved in 9/11. That evidence has never been forthcoming. But there — that’s a separate proposition from the question of whether or not there was some kind of a relationship between the Iraqi government, Iraqi intelligence services and the al Qaeda organization.”
And now the next bogey man to justify the “War on Terror” Awlaki, already claimed to be dead in 2009, is raised by the media, and ACT for America in order to substitute for Bin Laden.
I have to be honest…in this supposed “War on Terror” I have NO IDEA whom or what to trust. It is fact that Bin Laden, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda have ALL at one time or another been pronounced heroes and then bogey men, and now heroes again. I am starting to think ”The War on Terror” as reported by the US Media is being scripted by the same writers of 24. And hey, if media outlets like MSNBC received almost a trillion dollars in stimulus money, why not.
I do not care if it is Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, CNBC or the Huffington Post (or for that matter the Gaspee Gazette): please do not trust ANYTHING you hear from either side of the mainstream. Start doing research into the LONG STANDING relationship of the US, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda and you will see the “War on Terror” is very fishy at best.
I am just as happy as everyone else that Bin Laden is dead, however the evidence is mounting very heavily that Al Qaeda is just the most recent “boogy man” funded and used by the world superpowers for at best “less than legal” military action, and at worst, an excuse to take away our liberty in exchange for safety. You have to wonder if the Bin Laden deal was brokered at the ”special lunch for Muslim outreach”?
As McCain said the “rebels” in Libya, though proven to be Al Qaeda, are the good guys again because they are getting rid of Gadhafi.

This video is just under 4 minutes and demonstrates one of the tactics Obama and the progressives are utilizing to assure his/their re-election. The dollars coming out of the Treasury like coins in a slot machine, cannot last forever without extreme consequences, but they sure can last until the 2012 elections!
Dog gone it though, the Republicans in the House just could not find any more spending cuts. I am sure they tried REALLY hard.
