Release 'Detainees''; Charge and Imprison Bush for Capital Crimes

The Bush administration is trying once again to rewrite history and the law, specifically 'the official evidence against Guantanamo Bay detainees'. Typically the legal eagles in the Bush regime have it backward. Bushco should not be given a second chance to fabricate a case when it had none to begin with. Detainees have already been in detention for years in violation of US Codes and our international treaties. Bush has had years to make a case and has failed to do so. To make 'detainees' --illegally detained to begin with --wait still longer for justice is, in itself, another crime to be charged to George W. Bush.

A capital crimes case against Bush is better than the 'case' Bush has against the 'detainees'. This is a regime that commits war crimes and tries to make them legal after the fact --a recipe for dictatorship and tyranny.

A Federal judge will review the so-called evidence against detainees in the wake of the recent high court decision. Typically, Bushies want more time to fabricate another 'case'. What was wrong with the case they had was this: they didn't have one!
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration wants to rewrite the official evidence against Guantanamo Bay detainees, allowing it to shore up its cases before they come under scrutiny by civilian judges for the first time.

The government has stood behind the evidence for years. Military review boards relied on it to justify holding hundreds of prisoners indefinitely without charge. Justice Department attorneys said it was thoroughly and fairly reviewed.

Now that federal judges are about to review the evidence, however, the government says it needs to make changes.

The decision follows last week's Supreme Court ruling, which held that detainees have the right to challenge their detention in civilian court, not just before secret military panels. At a closed-door meeting with judges and defense attorneys this week, government lawyers said they needed time to add new evidence and make other changes to evidentiary documents known as "factual returns."

Attorneys for the detainees criticized the idea, saying the government is basically asking for a last-minute do-over.

"It's sort of an admission that the original returns were defective," said attorney David Remes, who represents many detainees and attended Wednesday's meeting. "It's also an admission that the government thinks it needs to beef up the evidence."

-- APNewsBreak: US asks to rewrite detainee evidence
Rather than giving the Bush administration a second chance to 'beef up the evidence', Bush should be preparing a defense against charges his criminal regime held the detainees for years in violation of numerous international prohibitions, laws, as well as US criminal codes. The Bush administration should be beefing up its defense against charges that it committed capital crimes.

That assumes, of course, that Bush has a defense.

To give Bushies a 'redo' now is absurd. The Detainees have already been held for years in violation of every civilized principle, common law, US Codes, the principles of Nuremberg and Geneva. Bush should not be given a 'redo'. He should be given an indictment!

There is an open and shut case against Bush for his having authorized the commission of capital crimes. He even boasted about it in his State of the Union Address of 2003.
All told, more than 3,000 suspected terrorists have been arrested in many countries. Many others have met a different fate. Let's put it this way -- they are no longer a problem to the United States and our friends and allies. (Applause.)

--Bush, State of the Union, 2003
Bush either has a case against the 'detainees' or he does not. If his criminal gang had had cases, it would have made them long ago. Some seven years or so is more than enough time when, in fact, Bushco should have had 'probable cause' --at the time --to imprison 'detainees' at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and other US hell holes through the Eastern European gulag. Bush then should have been given a reasonable amount of time in which to make cases or drop them. It is past time to 'put up or shut up! It is time, rather, to be filing capital crimes and other criminal charges against Bush.

How Bush Helped Establish a Corporate 'New World Order'

'Terrorism' is merely the pretext cited by George W. Bush to begin a series of oil wars that John McCain says may last '10,000 years'. Bush has helped his corporate 'base' create a 'New World Order' in which robber barons of big oil, assisted by 'big media', rule the world and plunder its resources. Bush is their tool!

The super corporations were carving up territory around the Caspian Sea back in 1997, perhaps even earlier. Pakistan had been promised a war with Afghanistan to begin around October 15th of that year. Who made those promises and what did they know that we didn't?

It is no coincidence that since failed 'oil man' George W. Bush took office, war has either raged or is threatened in a region that is known to be rich in oil. The collapse of the Soviet Union added three new countries to the map of the Middle East - Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan, areas once shared between the Soviet Union and Iran. The Russian-Kazakh agreement cleared the way for more exploration and development. For American oil companies and Dick Cheney, specifically, it was a question of how to get it!

Countries have gone to war for less. The cast of characters are big multinational oil, gas, and pipeline companies: Unocal , Halliburton , and Chevron . The Moscow agreement divided the northern half down the middle of the Caspian. It defined who "owned" what! It defined which countries had exploration and development rights. It is no surprise that the multi-national corporations would urge the US to go to war on their behalf. It was and remains a rich resource.

In 1997, several Taliban representatives visited Sugarland, TX to meet with representatives of Unocal --an international energy company based in Sugarland. Sugarland is an affluent Houston suburb, a Republican enclave, represented at the time by Tom Delay. [The Taliban, Unocal and a Pipeline].

Unocal had proposed the construction of a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan across Afghanistan to Pakistan, delivering oil to waiting tankers in the Arabian Sea. From there, the oil would have been delivered, presumably to the US and other oil addicted nations around the world. Unocal claimed to have had agreements with Turkmenistan to sell and with Pakistan who would buy.

Unocal's own website stated that the pipeline was put on hold when the US struck against terrorist in the Sudan. While Unocal said that they would 'wait for peace', we must assume that they are still waiting. Still other reports hint at reasons oil barons might insist upon a war: the Taliban, say the reports, opposed the pipeline. At about this time, the US State Department threatened the Tabliban with a 'carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs'. In any case, the construction deal was 'off the table'. The Taliban left the land of Tom DeLay without an agreement.[See: Wayne Madsen: The Sellouts in the Fourth Estate]

I want to know what Tom DeLay knew at the time. It was, I believe, soon after the talks broke down that DeLay sponsored legislation 'exempting' US sodiers from war crimes prosecution at the International Criminal Court at the Hague! What did DeLay know? And when did he know it? Why was the administration already trying to shield itself and the military from war crimes prosecutions unless they were planning to commit some?

The following story was probably overlooked in the wake of a spectacular attack that 'traumatized' the nation and much of the world.
A former Pakistani diplomat has told the BBC that the US was planning military action against Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban even before last week's attacks.

Niaz Naik, a former Pakistani Foreign Secretary, was told by senior American officials in mid-July that military action against Afghanistan would go ahead by the middle of October.

Mr Naik said US officials told him of the plan at a UN-sponsored international contact group on Afghanistan which took place in Berlin.

Mr Naik told the BBC that at the meeting the US representatives told him that unless Bin Laden was handed over swiftly America would take military action to kill or capture both Bin Laden and the Taliban leader, Mullah Omar.

The wider objective, according to Mr Naik, would be to topple the Taliban regime and install a transitional government of moderate Afghans in its place - possibly under the leadership of the former Afghan King Zahir Shah. Mr Naik was told that Washington would launch its operation from bases in Tajikistan, where American advisers were already in place.

He was told that Uzbekistan would also participate in the operation and that 17,000 Russian troops were on standby. Mr Naik was told that if the military action went ahead it would take place before the snows started falling in Afghanistan, by the middle of October at the latest.

He said that he was in no doubt that after the World Trade Center bombings this pre-existing US plan had been built upon and would be implemented within two or three weeks.

And he said it was doubtful that Washington would drop its plan even if Bin Laden were to be surrendered immediately by the Taliban.

--US 'planned attack on Taliban' [Before 911]

Certainly --a war with Afghanistan was already on the table before 911. Bush needed a pretext and got it on 911! Bush has since treated it as a 'blank check', citing it to justify dictatorial powers never given the office of 'President' by the US Constitution. Because of 911, Bush asserted powers not even claimed by Charles I who was, by the way, beheaded for his efforts.
Of course, U.S. firms aren't generally supposed to do business with Saddam Hussein. But thanks to legal loopholes large enough to steer an oil tanker through, Halliburton profited big-time from deals with the Iraqi dictatorship. Conducted discreetly through several Halliburton subsidiaries in Europe, these greasy transactions helped Saddam Hussein retain his grip on power while lining the pockets of Cheney and company.

According to the Financial Times of London, between September 1998 and last winter, Cheney, as CEO of Halliburton, oversaw $23.8 million of business contracts for the sale of oil-industry equipment and services to Iraq through two of its subsidiaries, Dresser Rand and Ingersoll-Dresser Pump, which helped rebuild Iraq's war-damaged petroleum-production infrastructure. The combined value of these contracts exceeded those of any other U.S. company doing business with Baghdad.

Halliburton was among more than a dozen American firms that supplied Iraq's petroleum industry with spare parts and retooled its oil rigs when UN sanctions were eased in 1998. Cheney's company utilized subsidiaries in France, Italy, Germany, and Austria so as not to draw undue attention to controversial business arrangements that might embarrass Washington and jeopardize lucrative ties to Iraq, which will pump $24 billion of petrol under the UN-administered oil-for-food program this year. Assisted by Halliburton, Hussein's government will earn another $1 billion by illegally exporting oil through black-market channels.

With Cheney at the helm since 1995, Halliburton quickly grew into America's number-one oil-services company, the fifth-largest military contractor, and the biggest nonunion employer in the nation. Although Cheney claimed that the U.S. government "had absolutely nothing to do" with his firm's meteoric financial success, State Department documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times indicate that U.S. officials helped Halliburton secure major contracts in Asia and Africa. Halliburton now does business in 130 countries and employs more than 100,000 workers worldwide.

Its 1999 income was a cool $15 billion.

--Dick Cheney Made Millions with Saddam Hussein
Not only did Bush exploit the 911 pretext for a series of never-ending wars throughout the oil rich Middle East, Saddam had been lured into attacking Kuwait during the regime of George Bush Sr. The senior Bush's real issue with Saddam was not that Saddam had taken over Kuwait but that Saddam had been manipulating the price of oil at the spigot! Bush had wanted to keep the price of oil high. Bush Sr set a trap for Saddam in the hopes that he would 'annex' Kuwait. Saddam fell into the trap and the first Persian Gulf War resulted. Here is just a portion of the transcript between US Ambassador April Glaspie, Saddam Hussein, and Tariq Azis before Saddam "annexed" Kuwait:

    TARIQ AZIZ: Our policy in OPEC opposes sudden jumps in oil prices.

    HUSSEIN: Twenty-five dollars a barrel is not a high price.

    GLASPIE: We have many Americans who would like to see the price go above $25 because they come from oil-producing states.

    HUSSEIN: The price at one stage had dropped to $12 a barrel and a reduction in the modest Iraqi budget of $6 billion to $7 billion is a disaster.

    GLASPIE: I think I understand this. I have lived here for years. I admire your extraordinary efforts to rebuild your country. I know you need funds. We understand that and our opinion is that you should have the opportunity to rebuild your country. But we have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait.

    Source: New York Times, Sunday, September 23, 1990
After Bush Srs war crime against the people of Iraq, Francis Boyle, PhD presided over a 'War Crimes Trial' at University. The following is from his 'indictment'.
Bush’s "New World Order" 41. Today, the government in the United States of America constitutes an international criminal conspiracy under the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment and Principles, that is legally
identical to the Nazi government in World War II Germany. The Defendants’ wanton extermination of approximately 250,000 People in Iraq provides definite proof of the validity of this Nuremberg Proposition for the entire world to see. Indeed, Defendant Bush’s so-called New World Order sounds and looks strikingly similar to the New Order proclaimed by Adolph Hitler over fifty years ago. You do not build a real New World Order with stealth bombers, Abrams tanks, and tomahawk cruise missiles. For their own good and the good of all humanity, the American People must condemn and repudiate Defendant Bush and his grotesque vision of a New World Order that is constructed upon warfare, bloodshed, violence and criminality.

Jung: Resisting the 'New World Order '

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

It is said of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung [1875 - 1961] that he was 'prophetic of today’s ongoing debate about religion and science' as well as a much older debate about the 'individual' and the 'state'. Today --the GOP has demagogued religion while Bush, the party's flag bearer, has thrown in with 'state absolutists' --Friedrich Hegel, Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler and Pol Pot.
The healthy man does not torture others - generally it is the tortured who turn into torturers.

--Carl Jung
Those words put Carl Jung in opposition to a cult of cruelty and torture that has apparently assumed political control in the United States. It is ironic that a nation said to have been founded upon the principles of the enlightenment should find itself, under Bush's rule, categorized with regimes historically associated with 'collectivism' and 'totalitarianism.

Growing up in West Texas, among both radical 'John Birchers' and fundamentalist Christians, it is less surprising to me that the GOP, a party that often says of itself that it opposes 'big government' should, during the regime of George W. Bush, align itself with the forces of state oppression and incipient totalitarianism and that it should do so while brandishing the flag.
In this broad belt of unconsciousness, which is immune to conscious criticism and control, we stand defenseless, open to all kinds of influences and psychic infections. As with all dangers, we can guard against the risk of psychic infection only when we know that is attacking, and how, where and when the attack will come.

Since self-knowledge is a matter of getting to know the individual, facts and theories are of very little help in this respect. For the more a theory lays claims to universal validity, the less capable it is of doing justice to the individual facts.

Any theory based on experience is necessarily statistical; that is to say, it formulates an ideal average which abolishes all exceptions at either end of the scale and replaces them by an abstract mean. This mean is quite valid, though it need not necessarily occur in reality.

--Carl Jung, The Undiscovered Self
In "The Undiscovered Self", Jung foresaw a great crisis arising from the forces of 'collectivism' on the one hand and those that celebrate the inherent value of the individual on the other. It is a dialectic that few could have imagined might reach a zenith in a Bush regime, from which nothing special was expected, a regime that held out only the promise of oppressive dullness --not oppresssion itself, a regime characterized by standard GOP conventionality and mediocrity.

Little was expected of Bush who delivered even less in every area but one. Bush marshaled the powerful forces of state propaganda, fear, and 'group think' to forge a totalitarian collective from among his aggressive, authoritarian, intolerant and elitist base! In the wake of 911, even strong 'individualists' found it easier to just go along with the 'mass think' that blamed Islam, Europe [France, in particular] for crimes that we now know were perpetrated by the Bush regime itself. Hitler had been similarly successful in the wake of the Reichstag Fire.

Jung argued the future of civilization was literally dependent upon the ability of the individual to resist the collective forces that are found in every society. Jung's prescription consisted of individuals 'gaining an awareness and understanding' of one's own sub-conscious, in other words, “the undiscovered self'.
Resistance to the organized mass can be affected only by the man who is well organized in his individuality as the mass itself.'

--Carl Jung, The Undiscovered Self, [p. 60]
One should not be surprised that Bush benefited most from the 'collectivist instinct' found in the 'religious right', a movement which typifies 'group think' and the suppression of individual reason, creativity, originality, or non-conformity of any type.
He [Jung] distinguishes between religion which expresses a subjective relationship to certain metaphysical factors and a creed which merely gives expression to a collective belief. Religion is understood in the broad sense, including the relationship of the individual to the metaphysical and the world of dreams, feelings and intuitions.

Science, on the other hand, is the rationalistic, statistical and theoretical part of understanding. Self-knowledge, according to Jung, cannot be achieved by abandoning either of these facets.

--Review, Carl Jung's The Undiscovered Self
In America, the 'religious' instinct is that of the 'group'. It has very little in common with the individual's quest for enlightenment or spirituality. Thus, the process by which individuals acquire knowledge of Jung's 'undiscovered self' is antithetical to 'ideological fanaticism' observed to be rampant and intolerant throughout Bush's America.

Only when individuals embrace the dual nature of the human psyche --the existence of good as well as its capacity for evil --that individuals may cope with the dangers and threats posed by those in power or by what Jung has called 'the sum total of individuals' i.e, the modern 'mass society'. It is not only totalitarian regimes but society itself, by way of the 'science' of 'demographics' that reduces the individual to the individual only as he/she is a part of the 'mass'.
Modern propaganda reaches individuals enclosed in the mass, yet it also aims at a crowd, but only as a body composed of individuals. What does this mean? First of all, that the individual is never considered as an individual, but always in terms of what he has in common with others, such as his motivations, his feelings, or his myths. He is reduced to an average; and except for a small percentage, action based on averages will be effectual.'


'In this broad belt of unconsciousness, which is immune to conscious criticism and control, we stand defenseless, open to all kinds of influences and psychic infections. As with al dangers, we can guard against the risk of psychic infection only when we know that is attacking, and how, where and when the attack will come. Since self-knowledge is a matter of getting to known the individual facts, theories help very little in this respect. For the more a theory lays claims to universal validity, the less capable it is of doing justice to the individual facts. Any theory based on experience is necessarily statistical; that is to say, it formulates an ideal average which abolishes all exceptions at either end of the scale and replaces them by an abstract mean. This mean is quite valid, though it need not necessarily occur in reality.

--Propaganda: On the Formation of Man’s Attitudes[p.6]
Jung defies summary. It is better that you read him for yourself. However, some general conclusions are possible. Jung writes that 'Separation from his instinctual nature' impels the 'conflict between conscious and unconscious', between 'knowledge and faith' [Jung, op cit., p. 81] It is easy enough to find this 'symptom' in Bush's America bombarded as it is by unprecedented 'mass media' and equally unprecedented pressures to conform.

These 'pressures' to conform have always been identifiable, opposed as they were by Henry David Thoreau who chose --at Walden pond --to "live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Others known for their creative resistances to 'mass think' include Mark Twain and later Lenny Bruce, the 'beatniks', hippies, and Viet Nam war resisters. 'Howl' by Allen Ginsberg is a latter day movement's very anthem of 'resistance' as was the earlier 'Song of Myself' by Walt Whitman in which it is written:
'I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

--Walt Whitman
“Here we must ask: Have I any religious experience and immediate relation to God, and hence that certainty which will keep me, as an individual, from dissolving in the crowd?'

--Jung, op cit, p.88
Given the oppressive nature of Bush's evil regime, the 'mass think' inherent in 'mass media', the mind-numbing sameness of American suburbs, it is difficult to find the paths sought so heroically by Whitman, Ginsberg, et al.
We can recognize our prejudices and illusions only when, from a broader psychological knowledge of ourselves and others, we are prepared to doubt the absolute rightness of our assumptions and compare them carefully and conscientiously with the objective facts.

--Jung, op cit,p. 102

The same thing was said much earlier by Oliver Cromwell to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 1650
I beseech you in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.
The GOP, tragically, will never admit of being wrong. Therefore, as long as the GOP is allowed power of any sort, the state is made dysfunctional and the 'debate' made meaningless.

The future of mankind is in doubt. As long as the state presumes to exercise 'absolute power', individuals are robbed of the freedom required to lead meaningful lives.

In this challenging and provocative work, Dr. Carl Jung—one of history’s greatest minds—argues that civilization’s future depends on our ability as individuals to resist the collective forces of society. Only by gaining an awareness and understanding of one’s unconscious mind and true, inner nature—“the undiscovered self”—can we as individuals acquire the self-knowledge that is antithetical to ideological fanaticism. But this requires that we face our fear of the duality of the human psyche—the existence of good and the capacity for evil in every individual. In this seminal book, Jung compellingly argues that only then can we begin to cope with the dangers posed by mass society—“the sum total of individuals”—and resist the potential threats posed by those in power.

--Penquin Review of Jung's 'The Undiscovered Self'

At last, in response to uninformed 'labelers', practitioners of stupid ad hominem fallacies: Jung was NOT a Nazi. Jung, in fact, wound up on the Nazi 'blacklist' probably because he denounced precisely whatever it is that defines a 'Nazi'.
As early as 1918, Jung knew something unfavorable was arising within Germany. His words of the "blond beast stirring in its subterranean prison...threatening us with an outbreak that will have devastating consequences" (Jung, 1947, as cited in Welsh, Hannah, & Briner, 1947) serve as an early warning of what was to come. Just ten years later, he wrote on how each person is unconsciously worse when acting within a crowd rather than individually. Jung warned the world that the larger an organization becomes, the more the people are prone to immorality and blind ignorance (Jung, 1947, as cited in Welsh, Hannah, & Briner, 1947).

In 1933, in a lecture given in Cologne, Germany (at the same period in history when others accused him of Nazi-sympathy), Jung leveled a full blown warning about people as a collective suffocating the individual, leaving those in the crowd anonymous, irresponsible, and dangerous. Jung implied that Hitler (and Nazism) was the inevitable cause of such collectivenes. Four years later, in 1937, Jung spoke at Yale University in the United States, relaying his belief that the movement seen in Germany was explained by a fear of neighboring countries supposedly possessed by devilish leaders. In stating that no one can recognize their own unconscious underpinnings, the possibility that Germany was projecting their own condition upon their International neighbors was evident (Jung, 1947, as cited in Welsh, Hannah, & Briner, 1947). This fear leads to the nationalistic duty to have the biggest guns and the strongest army.

In 1940, most of these words were published in German but were quickly suppressed. As a result of Jung's views about Germany and particularly Adolf Hitler, he ended up on the Nazi "blacklist" (Jung, 1947, as cited in Welsh, Hannah, & Briner, 1947). When France was later invaded, the Gestapo destroyed Jung's French translations as well. In no uncertain terms, Jung's writings and lectures served as a warning for the conflict to come. As well, Jung's own words opposed the accusations of Nazi sympathy and anti-Semitism. It would seem then, in light of the above, that the answer to the question of Nazi sympathy and anti-Semitism is fairly clear.

Indict George Bush, Marvin Bush, Dick Cheney, Larry Silverstein for Mass Murder

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

There is probable cause to indict Larry Silverstein, Marvin Bush, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and others inside the Bush administration for mass murder in connection with the so-called 'terrorist attacks' of 911! Conan Doyle's character Sherlock Holmes said: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth!"

Every other explanation but 'controlled demolition' is, rather, easy to eliminate.
  • Many of the alleged hijackers are still alive. 'Raptured'?
  • Steel has never and will never melt in kerosene fires.
  • At the Pentagon, here was just enough debris to fill up NO more than a few wheelbarrows; certainly, an airliner of almost any type would have left behind much, much more wreckage.
  • No piece of Flight 93 was found at its 'crash site' in PA. This is truly a miracle without precedent. On 911, we are expected to believe, the laws of physics were suspended.
In the history of flight, no Pterodactyl has ever crashed that did not leave behind a body, no bird took flight that did not leave behind a frail skeleton to rot, no bi-plane ever crashed that did not leave behind its wreckage, no jet fighter ever crashed at any speed that did not leave behind charred bodies and wreckage! We are expected to believe that on 911 the laws of physics, the laws of the conservation of matter and energy were suspended.

As a reporter, I covered my share of disasters to include the crashes of aircraft --military and commercial. I have yet to see a crash that left NO wreckage, deaths but yet NO bodies! Bush's ludicrous cover story is eliminated with its lies! The 911 Commission Report reads like a high school paper, a work of implausible and un-imaginative fiction. What remains is the probable cause that George W. Bush and the cabal of criminals that make up his so-called administration pulled off 911 as a cover for the many crimes of this administration. Who benefited from 911? The most obvious beneficiaries are Bush, who found in 911 an opportunity to become a dicatator; Larry Silverstein who made out like the bandit he is; and a small army of 'short sellers', linked to Buzzy Krongard! They made fortunes short selling airline stocks. Guess which airlines!

The three essential ingredients of a criminal indictment can be proven of an indictable Bush gang --method, motive, and opportunity! The Bush gang had all three.
If the 9/11 attacks were orchestrated or at least deliberately allowed by the Bush- Cheney administration and the Pentagon, then the motivation to cover up this murderous and treasonous act would be unlimited. No expenditure of time and money would be considered too great."

Professor David Ray Griffin --The True Story of 9/11: Part IV
What follows is not a summation to the jury following their trials for mass murder. That comes later after the gang has been indicted, imprisoned until trial for the crimes of mass murder and high treason. It is, rather, the 'probable cause' to begin an official investigation of the crime of 911. Typically, a 'defendant' may be arrested in the course of committing a crime. Certainly, the Bush gang are committing crimes as we write. We have had to wait too long, however, for 911 justice.

Things are not so straight forward when the suspect claims to be the President of the United States. Criminal cases that attract media attention --and this is most certainly one of them --involve protracted and complicated investigations. In this case, there has been no investigation. Attempts by the President to prevent or obstruct investigations of the crime are, themselves, crimes of 'obstruction of justice' and destruction of material evidence, specifically evidence that was ordered hauled away from the scene of the crime and sold to foreign buyers.

Investigations are generally conducted by the FBI. Clearly --the FBI dare not begin of its own volition an investigation of George W. Bush and his administration. If it had been attempted, we may never know about it until someone writes his/her memoirs.

Impeachment, a political remedy, is reserved for the Congress, timid and intimidated. Just recently, an attempt by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) to impeach Bush was all but quashed. Congress is reluctant to challenge the entrenched Bush cabal and its supporters in the Military/Industrial complex and allies on K-Street. The people themselves must force the hand of justice. By law, any Federal Grand Jury now convened can begin an investigation of any thing it wants and may subpoena anyone it pleases in the pursuit of that investigation.

It would appear that Bush will escape justice unless such a 'run-away' Grand Jury musters up the courage to subpoena the members of this conspiracy and put them under oath. The many lies and inconsistencies that will surface will break the case 'wide open' and members of the tightly knit Bush regime will keep the world entertained by 'ratting on one another.
A federal grand jury has the power to serve a subpoena on any person within the United States. Thus, both US citizens and visitors to the US may be compelled to testify and/or provide physical evidence. A federal grand jury also has the authority to subpoena US citizens and residents abroad. Federal law currently does not grant grand juries the power to subpoena non US citizens and residents abroad. However, in the wake of the attacks of September 11 and the fear of further attacks, every possibility exists that Congress will elect to extend the reach of grand jury subpoenas.


Will we hear about the grand jury investigation(s) of the attacks? Will this be like the grand jury Kenneth Starr used to investigate the Clinton-Lewinsky relationship?

Notwithstanding grand jury secrecy, the public learned quite a lot about what the grand jury investigating the Clinton-Lewinsky relationship was doing. This information came from two sources: leaks from those involved with the investigation and statements by witnesses subpoenaed by the grand jury.

Neither of these is likely to occur with the grand jury or the grand juries investigating the September 11 attacks. The witnesses in the terrorist investigation(s) could, like the witnesses in the Clinton-Lewinsky investigation, reveal the fact that they testified before a grand jury and describe what they said in their testimony. The law of grand jury secrecy does not apply to grand jury witnesses, only to prosecutors, grand jurors, court reporters and others who assist with a grand jury investigation. Witnesses subpoenaed to testify about the September 11 attacks are, however, far less likely to let it be known that they have testified before the grand jury; those who were associates of the terrorists will keep silent because of a fear of retaliation. Others will no doubt keep silent out of respect for the investigation, on the theory that revealing their testimony might help the targets of the investigation escape justice. It is also possible that a federal court could order a witness to remain silent about the fact that he or she testified and about the substance of their testimony until the investigation has concluded; the US Supreme Court has held that witnesses cannot be forever barred from disclosing this information, but the Court would likely uphold requiring a witness to remain silent until the investigation was complete.

-- Using a Grand Jury to Investigate 911
It is important to get the liars under oath in front of a Federal Grand Jury. By law, any Federal Grand Jury now convened can begin now to subpoena members of the Bush gang of criminals. Such a panel may begin now to investigate Bush's heinous crimes against the people of America, the people of New York, and, specifically the some 6,000 people whose murders Bush continues to cover up with a series of deliberate acts which are themselves violations of Federal Laws involving lies about the nature of the crime, obstruction of justice and a history of efforts by the Bush administration to destroy evidence (a federal crime), quash inquiries and intimidate the media. Only guilty people do that!

An innocent and legitimate 'President' would have insisted upon a complete and thorough investigation. Bush, rather, covered it up. Innocent people are not motivated to cover-up crimes!

Numerous engineers, construction experts, and physicists have questioned Bush's official and utterly inadequate official conspiracy theory of 911. Experts in the field of 'controlled demolition' most certainly know one when they see one. On 911, newscasters --Dan Rather and Peter Jennings --called the collapses of both towers 'controlled demolitions". No other 'explosion', no other method of demolishing a building (wrecking balls, et al) look like 'controlled demolitions'. Only 'controlled demolitions' look like 'controlled demolitions'. The rapid collapses of the Twin Towers look like a 'controlled demolitions' because they were 'controlled demolition'.

Many people will not accept that but for emotional and illogical reasons --misplaced ''patriotism'', blind loyalty to the criminal Bush, fear of facing the consequences of having a mass murderer occupy the White House. Their reasons have nothing to do with science, logic or observation.Their's are emotional and irrational responses based upon the inability to accept unpleasant truths, the human proclivity to reject out-of-hand cold hard facts that are inconsistent with cherished myths, deeply held lies and/or comforting fairy tales.

The GOP --a party which embraced Ronald Reagan because he "made us feel good about ourselves" was, therefore, ripe for exploitation by venal GOP politicians.

Let's take a look at what the experts say about the controlled demolitions of WTC. It must be pointed out that Building 7 is exempted from the following remarks. We know that Building 7 was a controlled demolition. Building 7 is a textbook example of how controlled demolitions look as are the falls of the Twin Towers.

Silverstein: WTC 'pulled'

We have Larry Silverstein on video conceding to the world that 'it was pulled', action Silverstein says was taken after he consulted with firefighters. Building 7 had not been hit by an 'airliner' and had only two or three small fires. Yet --its demolition was precise and symmetrical, in fact, a 'controlled demolition'.

Silverstein says 'it was pulled following his discussion with firefighters. Why? What had been kept in building 7 that murderers and other politicians would want it pulled? A 47-story skyscraper, it was 'shrouded in secrecy'. Mayor Rudolph Giuliani had a 'bunker', a 'command center' on the 23rd floor. Offices included the IRS, the CIA, the Secret Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission. It is suspicious that on the very day of the attack, Giuliani, had 'set up shop out of harm's way. What did he know and when did he know it? Put him under oath in front of a Federal Grand Jury.
At the time of its destruction, Building 7 housed documents relating to numerous SEC investigations. The files for approximately three to four thousand cases were destroyed, according to the Los Angeles Times. Among the destroyed documents were ones that may have demonstrated the relationship between Citigroup and the WorldCom bankruptcy.

--The Mysterious Leveling of Building 7

Many 'controlled demolition' experts have claimed that the twin towers of the WTC were controlled demolitions. These experts should know one when they see one!
  1. Demolition experts say that the manner in which Twin Towers of the WTC collapsed is explained only by Controlled Demolition. It is doubtful that soft-bodied, aluminum airliners could have even penetrated the tower exteriors as was described by the government 9/11 Commission Report. The towers fell in only 11 seconds --a fact that utterly disproves the early 'pancake' theory. [See: Debunking Novas Pancake Theory of WTC]. ONLY a 'controlled demolition' is consistent with a fall of only 11 seconds. Put another way: ONLY a 'controlled demolition' explains a fall of only 11 seconds. Even if one allows a half second for each floor, the 'pancake' theory requires about 45 seconds for a complete collapse . If the collapse of the towers took only 11 seconds, then it was, in fact, a controlled demolition. There is no other explanation.
  2. The 911 Commission statement that “the [WTC] core was hollow” is simply a bald-faced lie as photos taken of WTC construction back in 1970 prove conclusively. The core is fully visible as the construction photo above shows. The official conspiracy theories claim that soft-bodied aluminum airliners penetrated 9 feet of concrete and 4 rows of 4-ft-square steel girders. We are expected to believe as well that soft-bodied aluminum airliners penetrated the steel outside girders and the two rounds of 47.4 ft wide steel that made up the inside core! It didn't happen. The 911 Commission expects us to believe that the 'core' didn't even exist. The 911 Commission lied to you!

    The 'videos' even depict a helicopter 'flying backward' over what has been described as the 'real NY skyline' video. I've been editing video tape since video tape was more than two inches wide. Now I use state of the art non-linear equipment. There are compelling reasons to be suspicious of videos that depict physical impossibilities. The only explanation for that is: fakery! In this case, government fakery and bald-faced lies!
  3. The fires of WTC could never have gotten hot enough to have melted the steel and thus cause the collapse of either tower! The 'melting of steel' requires a sealed blast furnace for 2 hours! Jet fuel burns at 1,700 degrees --NEVER higher! The commission stated that the burning desks, plastics, and paper melted the steel! Steel melts only melts at temperatures of 2700 degrees for more. Items like desks, plastics, and paper, which burn at about 450 degrees, have never, ever at any time in history melted steel!

    The WTC fires burned up in about 15 seconds. Steel would not have weakened at a mere 1700 degrees and it is doubtful that the steel girders would weakened sufficiently to collapse in only 15 seconds even at much higher temperatures.

    At some point, when it was clear that the 'official' cover could no longer be maintained, Bush loyalists and other liars changed their stories, denying that 'molten steel' had been found at the scene of the crime, i.e, the wreckage of the Twin Towers. In fact, the molten steel, had been found at the sites for a period of some six weeks. It was photographed and reported by New York firefighters. The presence of molten steel is consistent with a controlled demolition. The firefighters, said the pro-Bush liars, had merely mistaken molten 'aluminum' for 'molten steel'. There are several fatal flaws in those assertions, this 'second' cover story. First, molten steel explains the tower collapse and is consistent with observed facts; a 'melted aluminum theory, however, is inconsistent with observed facts and raises yet another complication for Bush advocates to explain away! Secondly, many Bush proponents have claimed that the aluminum bodied airliner that they believe crashed the Pentagon merely 'vaporized'. Certainly --no melted aluminum was found there! If that had been the case, then, why are we to believe that the planes that crashed WTC left behind 'melted aluminum' rather than 'vaporizing' into thin air many believe happened at the Pentagon.

    Violations of Occam's razor will always lead the liars astray. In fact, no ''melted aluminum' was found either at the Pentagon or at the WTC because there was not any 'melted aluminum' to be found.

    Bush proponents were motivated to sell an alternative version of events. The presence of 'molten steel' disproves the official theory and indicts Bush. Official conspiracy theorist were faced with a big hole that required plugging and fast!

    What was found at WTC was molten steel and the firefighters reported that it lasted for weeks. Their observation is absolutely consistent with the laws of physics and chemistry and it is entirely consistent with the testimony of reliable witnesses to the attacks and aftermath of 911.

    As many sites have reported, fire has never, ever brought down a skyscraper. And, it is plain enough, that fire did not bring down the WTC. Significant fires are documented to have burned for hours and yet failed to bring down steel skyscrapers, notably, Madrid, in 2002, where a fire burned for some 19 hours. All floors were involved. At the end of 19 hours, the steel frame remained in place.

    There is yet additional proof that the fires --said to have been hot enough to melt steel --were not and did not! There are photographs of people standing in the very holes that had been --presumably --punched by the airliners. If the Commission's report were true, people could not have been standing there. They most certainly would have already burned to death.

    Most of the jet fuel burnt outside the buildings, a fact clearly seen in numerous videos of the South Tower. After impact, a flammable mist would have spread throughout the floor, igniting and exploding --as is plainly seen --outside the building.

    If the fires were as hot as the 911 Commission report would have you believe, then how are the recoveries of some body parts, papers, and passports to be explained? Jet fuel fires are brief and were brief on 911. The laws of physics did not change to accommodate the lies of the arch-criminal --Bush! Numerous experts have stated that if some 10,000 gallons of fuel, spread evenly across a floor, would be consumed by fire in less than five minutes. Clearly, then, the 'official theory' (that the fires burned for a very long time, building up heat, enough to melt steel) is utter nonsense. The fires could not and did not burn so long. Heat did not 'build up' in violation of the law of science. As fires dissipate, they cool and die. The back smoke seen in every video is proof that the fires had cooled. Smoke from hot fires is white! Again --Bush and the 911 Commission presumes to rewrite the laws of physics and there attempts to do so indicts them. It is, I believe, probable cause to suspect them of heinous crimes. It is the clever murderer who concocts a believable cover, a credible alibi. It is an incompetent fool --like Bush --who can't get his stories straight! It doesn't say much for the educational level of the typical American, that Bush --an idiot --has managed to fool millions with an absurd conspiracy theory that is more full of holes than a slice of swiss cheese!
  4. Many witnesses reported smoke near the bottom just before the collapse. Others reported 'explosions' just before the airliners were 'said' to have hit. Some writers have claimed to have film of bombs going off in the WTC basements. Certainly, those reports are consistent with remarks by firefighters who were at the scene. Why weren't these people interviewed? What was the origin and purpose of the explosions?
  5. Marvin Bush, head of security, ominously shut down security cameras two weeks prior to the WTC demolitions. Two weeks is probably enough time to 'wire' the buildings for a controlled demolition.

There are numerous other glaring holes in 911 officialdom. Most of it, I've already dealt with. For example, I've always found the fact that six of eleven hijackers are still alive to be a big hole in the official lie. My source for that information is none other than the venerable BBC who interviewed the six alleged 'hijackers' AFTER 911!

It is also extremely convenient that most girder pieces were seen to have been 'cut smooth' at 'an angle' and at just the right length for loading up and hauling away. It was Bush who ordered the steel sold off to China and elsewhere, an act of obstruction of justice and evidence tampering for which Bush should be indicted and prosecuted!

Until the myths and lies of Bush's official conspiracy theory are sorted out, the truth will be forever lost. Time is not on our side. Every day that Bush is not prosecuted for his crimes increases the odds that he will have gotten away with murder. Every crime is a matter of method, motive and opportunity.

Now that we have a pretty good handle on what did not happen (Bush/911 Commission 'conspiracy theory''), let's take a look at existing motives for bringing down the buildings. The WTC was built in 1970, an experiment in 'controlled environment'. There were no windows. By the time they were destroyed, vent ducts in the Twin Towers were filthy and clogged with mold. The air was unfit to breath. Steel beams were covered with un-removable asbestos. The situation was unfixable amid millions of dollars in law suits for lung cancer, mesothelioma and leukemia. The new owner --Larry Silverstein --had obviously concluded that the buildings would have to come down anyway. Clearly --it would have been a controlled demolition. Again --anyway! Clearly --controlled demolition had been planned from the day Larry Silverstein took possession of his 'white elephants'.

Put Silverstein before a Federal Grand Jury. Put it to him that the towers were going to have to come down by controlled demolition --anyway! Get his 'explanation' under oath!

Compare his story to the verifiable fact that Silverstein made out like a bandit on 911. Ask him about that and get his answer while he is under oath. Demolishing the WTC would have cost him millions, if not $billions$! But --conveniently --just a few weeks before 9/11, Larry Silverstein took out several $billions$ in insurance, double indemnity clauses for terrorist attacks. A Federal Grand Jury must get his explanation while he is under oath!

He demanded and received 'double indemnity' for each of 3 buildings though one of them, we know, was 'pulled'. Building 7. Ordinary folk, in other words, those not worth millions, those not friends or co-conspirators with arch criminals like George and Marvin Bush, would have already been indicted, convicted and thrown into a Federal hell hole awaiting execution for the capital crime of mass murder! Bushies and their friends walk!

But ...maybe not!

There is no statute of limitations on mass murder. There will always be the threat of a runaway Grand Jury looming above the heads of Silverstein, Cheney, Bush the acting President and Marvin Bush the brother whose position as head of 'Security''at the WTC makes him a prime suspect. Method! Motive! Opportunity!

Another interesting bit of evidence that proves that someone had accurate foreknowledge of the attacks: 911 Mayor Rudi Guilliani stated on camera that 'he had been warned to get out of the towers'. They were going to fall, he had been told! [See:Firefighter: Giuliani 'ran like a coward on 9/11']

Bush must think we are all bloody stupid and we have been to let him get away with it! See: The Blood on Bush's hands

In 2007, the so-called "Purdue Study" consisted of a cute, slick animation showing the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on 9/11. It was a great piece of computer animation. I can tell you that anyone with a computer and 3DS Max can animate almost anything and make it look convincing. The Purdue Study has nothing to do with reality. However slick, an animation showing soft aluminum wings slicing through hard steel proves nothing! Disney animated a mouse! Does that make Mickey real?

The study had claimed to be independent but, in fact, it was federally funded, conducted by individuals linked directly to the Pentagon and the White House. The Purdue study was intended to back up the 'findings' of the 2005 National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report. It is just an animated version of official lines and bullshit. No animation is able to disprove the melting point of steel! No animation --however slick --will change the laws of physics. In fact, the depiction of soft aluminum slicing through hard steel REQUIRES an animation. It will NEVER be photographed for real! And it will never be photographed 'for real' because it has never, ever happened and will never happen because it defies the laws of physics and could never be duplicated under lab or 'controlled' conditions simply because it is utterly impossible!

Typically, the New York Times applauded the bullshit study as "a counterpoint to the conspiracy theories promulgated by such outspoken figures as Rosie O’Donnell". In fact, the first conspiracy theory to surface was that of Bush, his paid liars and shills, the establishment media and exemplified by the NYT and an entire industry that depends utterly upon the Military/Industrial complex for its living. All of these people are willingly involved in the propagation of official conspiracy theories, officials lies, official propaganda, official bullshit! I repeat: there is probable cause now to indict George W. Bush for the crime of 911.

I've been criticized for having taken that position. Here is clue: I am no longer in the education business. And I don't take threats --veiled or otherwise --lightly! Comments will be moderated for this post. Labels and ad hominems won't get by me! Obvious lies or 'scripts' won't get by me! GOP plants won't get by me! If you insist upon wasting space and time, get your own blog and knock yourself out! If you try to post your venom, prepared GOP propaganda or right wing crap here, it won't get by the moderation! I no longer waste my time with fools, Bush plants, idiots, and GOP script pushers, shills, or agents! If you are one, you have to live with your sorry self.

“ We ought to find the people who are doing this, take them out and shoot them. Really. You take them out, they are traitors to this country, and shoot them. You have a problem with that? Deal with it. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that’s what they are, and you shoot them dead. I’ll pay for the bullets.” - Michael Reagan, 6-10-08

“ How about you take Mark Dice out and put him in the middle of a firing range. Tie him to a post, don’t blindfold him, let it rip and have some fun with Mark Dice.” - Michael Reagan, 6-10-08
Millions of freedom-loving people around the world support the 9/11 Truth Movement. Reagan wants them executed.
