Good OI' Fashion Hypocrisy - Condi weighs in

Ah yes. Those nasty Palestinian have slaughtered three Israeli citizens in the last three months. Around two hundred residents of the open air prison that is Gaza have died in the same period. Let's see that's about 60+ Palestinians, mostly women and children killed in "reprisal attacks" by the IDF for each Israeli. It doesn't even consider the number of deaths due to Israel's blockade of food, power, water, and access to medical treatment even in defiance of it's own doctors.

Would any sane person call that a "proportional" response?If you have to kowtow to the AIPAC lobby to get elected, you do.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, meeting Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in Tokyo, called for an end to Palestinian rocket attacks on Israeli territory from the Gaza Strip.

"Rocket attacks against Israel need to stop,'' Rice told reporters after holding a breakfast meeting today with Olmert at the New Otani Hotel in downtown Tokyo. "There needs to be due concern for people and the humanitarian situation in Gaza.''

Rice will follow up today's talks with a visit to Israel and the West Bank next week in an effort to help accelerate Middle East peace talks. Olmert and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad have expressed doubt they can meet the goal set by President George W. Bush of reaching a peace agreement by the end of this year.

Israel is involved in almost daily military operations against Palestinian groups to try to end rocket attacks. An Israeli man was killed yesterday by rocket fragments that landed in Sderot, a town near the border with Gaza. An Israeli raid into the Gaza Strip earlier killed five Palestinian gunmen, according to the military.

"I explained to her, like I explained to the people of Israel, we will make the terrorists pay a very painful price,'' Olmert said during a tour of a car factory in Oppama, Japan, south of Tokyo.

Offices Attacked

Israeli aircraft late yesterday attacked the offices of Hamas Prime Minister Ismael Hania and the nearby Interior Ministry in Gaza, both of which were empty, the Associated Press reported. Civilians were among at least 10 people, including a 6-month-old baby, killed in raids yesterday, AP cited unidentified Palestinian officials as saying.

Israel must exercise maximum restraint and not endanger civilians, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a statement yesterday that condemned the killing of four Palestinian children in military air strikes. He also referred to the Sderot attack, calling on Hamas and other groups to "cease such acts of terrorism.''

The Islamic militant movement, which is sworn to Israel's destruction, took control of the Gaza Strip when it ousted forces loyal to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction last June.

Asked whether she advised Olmert to prevent the military from using disproportionate force in Gaza, Rice said: "I think that's not a good way to address this issue. The issue is that the rocket attacks need to stop.''

Comment: Yes, the issue is NEVER about the criminal contact of the IDF against the Palestinian people. Condolizard is uttering her psychopathic remarks the moment Israeli attacks on Gaza just killed babies!

Peace Process

Rice, wrapping up a three-nation tour of Asia, said Olmert affirmed his commitment to move peace negotiations with the Palestinians forward. Olmert and Abbas have shown a "remarkable commitment'' to the process, she added.

The meeting with Rice was also Olmert's last diplomatic engagement during his four-day trip to Japan, which was aimed at boosting business and security ties.

Rice didn't comment on whether she discussed the issue of nuclear weapons proliferation and technology with Olmert.

Rice said while visiting China she is concerned that North Korea has spread nuclear weapons. Under a six-nation disarmament accord reached in February 2007, North Korea is to reveal its entire nuclear program, including possible links to Syria.

Israeli aircraft destroyed a Syrian target in September that media reports said was a nuclear plant being built with North Korean help. Israel declined to confirm or deny the reports and U.S. officials have said they won't discuss intelligence details.

Both Olmert and Rice met yesterday with Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, who said at a news conference that Japan will "do its utmost to realize Middle East peace.'' Olmert said he and Fukuda also agreed to cooperate in efforts to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

In meetings with Fukuda and Japanese Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura, Rice expressed regret over the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl two weeks ago by an American soldier on the island of Okinawa.

How Labour used the law to keep criticism of Israel secret

Richard Norton-Taylor
The Guardian
Thu, 21 Feb 2008 15:07 EST

The full extent of government anxiety about the state of British-Israel relations can be exposed for the first time today in a secret document seen by the Guardian.

The document reveals how the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) successfully fought to keep secret any mention of Israel contained on the first draft of the controversial, now discredited Iraq weapons dossier. At the heart of it was nervousness at the top of government about any mention of Israel's nuclear arsenal in an official paper accusing Iraq of flouting the UN's authority on weapons of mass destruction.

Comment: "..nervousness at the top of government.." - brings to mind Tony Blairs "fundraiser", Lord Levy. Oh what a tangled web they weave.

The dossier was made public this week, but the FCO succeeded before a tribunal in having the handwritten mention of Israel kept secret.

The FCO never argued that the information would damage national security. The Guardian has seen the full text and a witness statement from a senior FCO official, who argued behind closed doors that any public mention of the candid reference would seriously damage UK/Israeli relations. In the statement, he reveals that in the past five years there have been 10 substantial incidents and 20 more minor ones relating to Israeli concerns about attitudes to their government within Whitehall.

The Information Tribunal, which adjudicates on disputes involving the Freedom of Information Act, agreed to remove the single reference to Israel when it ordered the release of the draft of the Iraqi weapons dossier written by John Williams, the FCO's chief information officer at the time.

Along with unfavourable references to the US and Japan, the reference to Israel was written in the margin by someone commenting on the opening paragraph of the Williams draft. It was written against the claim that "no other country [apart from Iraq] has flouted the United Nations' authority so brazenly in pursuit of weapons of mass destruction".

In statement to the tribunal, Neil Wigan, head of the FCO's Arab, Israel and North Africa Group, said he did not know who had referred to Israel in the margin. He went on: "I interpret this note to indicate that the person who wrote it believes that Israel has flouted the United Nations' authority in a manner similar to that of the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussein."

Comment: The TRUTH is known in the corridors of power in Britain - Israel is a rogue state with nuclear weapons.

Its disclosure would seriously damage the UK's relations with Israel, Wigan said. The comparison with Saddam and the "implied accusation of a breach of the UN's authority by Israel are potentially very serious". It was "inevitable" that relations between the UK and Israel would suffer if the marginal note were allowed to enter the public domain, he added.

Comment: The TRUTH has to be sacrificed so that Britain can remain friendly with Israel. WHY?

Wigan observed: "Unfortunately, there is perception already in Israel that parts of the FCO [Foreign and Commonwealth Office] are prejudiced against the country". The note on the Williams draft dossier "would therefore confirm this pre-existing suspicion and would increase the damage".

Comment: It appears that there are people in the British civil service who see Israel for what it is and have sought to have the government at least acknowledge the truth but these people are silenced in order to avoid "damage". What is it that the British are so afraid of?

Writing in October last year, he noted that "criticism of Israel received a huge amount of media coverage". The margin comment mentioning Israel would thus be given a "high profile". Harming relations with Israel would undermine the FCO's ability to prevent and resolve conflict "through a strong international system". In addition, there was "an important national interest in relation to counter-terrorism", Wigan said.

Comment: So here we have it. Israel has Britain over a barrel in relation to "terrorism". Maybe they'd spill the beans on who the real terrorists are. The Bush administration faced a similar problem on 911 as explicated by Laura Knight-Jadczyk and Joe Quinn in 911 The Ultimate Truth.

The FCO insisted on the removal of the reference to Israel after it lost a long battle to suppress the draft dossier, which was drawn up in early September 2002. It originally argued that the name of the author needed to be protected. It then said the contents of the draft dossier should be suppressed to protect the need for officials to give frank advice. The Williams document was finally released by the FCO last week, three years after it was first requested by Chris Ames, an independent researcher, who pursued his campaign in the New Statesman magazine.

Richard Thomas, the Information Commissioner, said last year that it was in the public interest that the document should be released in its entirety. The FO appealed against his ruling and took it to the Information Tribunal.

The FCO had no objections to references to other countries in the margin of the Williams document. Alongside the claim that no other country apart from Iraq had twice launched wars of aggression against neighbours, the unknown FCO official writes: "Germany?" and " US: Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico". Against a reference to the use of chemical weapons, the official has written: "Japan in China?"

Claims in the Williams draft are similar to those in the final government Iraqi weapons dossier published in late September 2002. The Information Tribunal ordered the release of the draft, without reference to Israel, observing that it may have played a bigger role in influencing the final dossier than previously supposed. The government tried to distance itself from the Williams draft.

Comment: Israel sure is powerful for a nation that projects an image as the ultimate victim.

Ya Need a Laugh Now and Again

Ok, the charge that us kooky konspiracy theorists take ourselves way too seriously is often leveled at us. And ya know, we'd be the first to agree that sometimes that does apply to some of the more whacked-out blights on the legitimate alternative research community. The ones throwing out the "wild enough to might be true" stories with nary a checkable fact in sight. Take the latest offering from the "Project Camelot" site (oooh, already dripping with "conspiracy juju"). It had the researchers at SOTT rolling in the aisles, enough so that the satire bug bit hard. So herewith in the cause of education through humour, I give you The REAL Norwegian Politician!

The REAL Norwegian Politician speaks up! (Not the same as this one!)

As reported by Norwegian Secret Military Analysts to their Leak Me a Secret Magazine subscribers.

We recently received a most interesting letter from a real Norwegian politician. Although we wouldn't declare under oath for the authenticity of the manuscript, the elegant handwriting and the numerous footnotes suggest that a great deal of scientific research was carried out to support the claims. Plus, the poor use of the English language proves that we are dealing with a foreigner! Plus, the inability to write a coherent paragraph proves we are dealing with a politician!

- - - - - - - -

I am a Norwegian politician. Really. I would like to say that difficult things have happened throughout the history of the human race and they will still be happening from the current year (2008) [1] till the year ominously known as 2012 and beyond. All the years in between inclusive.

The Norwegian government is building more and more ultra secret underground bases and bunkers. But I know because I am an ultra politician. When I ask about the bases, they simply say that they are for the protection of the beautiful people of Norway. When I ask which beautiful people, they say "beautiful people who love their country, George Bush and the war on terror". When I inquire when they are due to be finished, they reply "before 2011". If I inquire any further I get a slap on the face, so I don't.

Israel is doing the same. And also many countries which are actually legitimate. The number of countries building bunkers is between [deleted] and [deleted] - give or take, sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the weather conditions. Let me double check with my secretary.

The proof that what I am saying is true is in the photographs I have sent of myself and all the Prime Ministers and ministers I tend to meet here. I mean, I am a friend of them - although unfortunately not all of them are friends with me. The photographs of myself are in the yellow envelope enclosed and the photos of the ministers are in the white envelope. If you think this doesn't constitute any proof as there are no photos with both me and the ministers, then I provide the following as ultimate proof:

[Spectacular ultimate proof supplied but deleted for security reasons].

The people who are doing this know all of what they themselves are doing, that is beyond any doubt. But they don't want to alarm you, the common and ugly people, nor create mass panic. Selfish as they are, they do not wish to share anything, not even their panic.

Planet X [2] is coming [3] and Norway has begun with storage of food and seeds in the Svalbard area and in the Arctic North with the help of the US and EU and all around in Norway, as Norway has been designated the Underground Elite Kitchen and Food Storage. They still haven't figured out how to transfer and serve the food from Norway to the rest of the underground bases around the world three times a day, but they are working on it. When enquired when they will come up with a solution, they cryptically reply "before 2011".

They will only save those who are in the elite of power and those who can build up again: doctors, scientists, and so on. This includes me, naturally, as I am a politician and politicians are spin doctors proficient in the science of propaganda. Shockingly, they also plan to save themselves - selfish as they are. And they have already a few of the members of the elite in hiding: Osama, Saddam, Abu Musaf and Adolf are already established. However you wouldn't recognize Adolf as he has shaved his cute little mustache.

I already know that I am going to leave before 2012 to go the area of Mosj√łen where we have a deep underground military facility. There we are divided into sectors: red, blue and green. The use of colors indicates that this is all very professional. Why there is no yellow sector, I can only guess. This is unfortunate because yellow is my favorite color. The signs of the Norwegian military are already given to the selected ones and the camps have already been built a long time ago. So long ago that you wouldn't believe it, so I'm not telling.

The people that are going to be left on the surface and die will get no help whatsoever. The logic is that once they are all dead there is little to nothing that can be done for them. This is entirely consistent with the selfishness of the elite. The plan is that 2,000,000 Norwegians are going to be safe, and the rest will die. If the current population of Norway is 4,600,00, a quick mathematical calculation indicates that 2,600,000 will perish into the night not knowing what to do. Alternatively, 2,600,000 will perish into the day not knowing what to do.

All the sectors and arks are connected with tunnels and have railcars that can take you from one ark to the other, provided that you buy your travel ticket in advance. Failure to present a valid ticket will get you evicted from the bunker in Celebrity Big Brother style. Rail cars were built so that they could be in contact with each other, because telecom facilities on the surface are expected to perish into the night. Only large doors separate them so that the sectors are not compromised in any matter - besides, we do appreciate a little privacy once in a while. Like when we are sleeping, for example.

I am very sad. [4] Often I cry with others that know what so many will learn too late, and then it will all be over for them. The government has been lying to the people from 1983 till now. Even before, (1982, 1981 and 1980, for a few examples) the government has been lying, far back into the mists of time. You wouldn't believe me if I told you how ancient the political practice of lying is - so I won't tell. All the major politicians (like myself, who am totally for real) know this in Norway, but few will say it to the people and the public - because they are allergic to telling the truth, and because they are afraid in case they too will miss the NOAH 12 [5] rail cars that will take them to the ark sites where they will be safe.

If they tell anyone, they are dead for sure. But I don't care any more about myself. Mankind must survive and the species must survive. People must know this. But I do care about myself because I just said that I am going underground, and paradoxically, I am not dead for sure yet. And mankind will not survive even if they know because they will be left to die on the surface... so why am I telling you this anyway?

All the governments in the world are aware of this and they just say it is going to happen. Except that they don't say it because it's a secret.

For those of the people that can save themselves I can only say reach for higher ground and find caves up in high places where you can have a food storage for at least five years with canned food and water to last for a while. Radiation pills, biosuits and can openers are also advisable if your budget allows it. If you happen to have the money I recommend building your own underground facility as well. Just don't call it "Noah" as the name has already been taken and copyright laws will be enforced to their furthermost extent. And be sure to complete it before 2011.

For the last time (today) I say may God help us all... but God will not help us all, I know - he will only help us the elite, haha! Only each person individually can make a difference. How, you ask? And I reply: Wake up, please, come on, what's wrong with you people?!

I could have written to you using another name but I am not afraid of anything any more. [6] When you know certain things (which I'm not telling) you become invincible and no harm can come to you when you know that the end is soon... does that make sense? I thought so.

I assure you 100% that things will happen. What these things are, well, that's another story. But I can guarantee that things will happen. The proof is that things have happened before and they have never stopped happening. For example, right now I just spilled the coffee on my desk. It always happens. See?

There are four years to prepare for the endgame. Get weapons, and make survival groups, and a place where you can be safe with food for a time. Please don't ask me how your weapons may help against a cosmic cataclysm as I have already said too much. Besides, I have no idea, but weapons are always nice to have around, aren't they? I should know as I'm a politician.

Ask me anything and I will answer as much as I know about the Norwegian connection to all this. I challenge you to ask if you dare! And just look around: they are building underground bases and bunkers everywhere. Look under your feet! What do you see? Isn't the fact that you do not see anything strange the ultimate proof that the underground bases are ultra-secret?? Open your eyes, people!

Ask the governments what they are building, and they will say "Oh, it's just storage for food, it's just a new McDonald's, it's just a new state-of-the-art mall with cinema and parking lot", and so on. They blind you with all these prefabricated and really clever lies.

The marks of the alien presence are also there, and I often see the Norwegian elite politicians are not what they say they are. It's like they are controlled in every thought, and what they have to say is just as they are told to do things in such manners. It is clear for an insider like me to determine who they are and who they are not. You can see it in their eyes and in their minds. You can see it most of all when they remove their plastic masks and stick their reptile forked tongues at you (they like to do that a lot).

Remember that those who are going to be in and around the city areas in 2012 are those who are going to be hit first and die first. Later the army will purge the rest of the survivors and they have a shoot to kill order if there is any resistance to bring them into the camps where every one will get marked with a number and a tag. Of course all of these things will be done out of pure evil, as there is no point in shooting and enslaving people who are already perishing into the night as the result of a cosmic catastrophe.

I also see that Benazir Bhutto is spoken of on your site. She was a blessing, and so is your site. Her death was a tragedy. And so is your site. I have met Benazir. You can see that I included a cut-out of a picture of hers from a newspaper. You will also see that I have included pictures of my childhood. If you put them together side by side you will conclude that I knew Benazir since I was a boy. Try this fun exercise with the photographs of other notable politicians and world leaders and you will see that I am very popular indeed! I do this often myself.

The public will not know what happens till the very end, because the government does not want to create mass panic. Everything will happen quietly and the government will just disappear. Except that now I am telling you and now you will know. That is why you are now experiencing mass panic and the government will not be able to disappear. It is a paradox of our times that the government will disappear yet it will not disappear which is up to YOU to figure out!

But I say this: don't go quietly into the night. Take precautions to be safe with your family. Come together with others. Work together to find ways to solve all the many problems you will face. But if you really have to go, then go in style noisily into the night.

Truly, really, honestly and sincerely,

9/11 - The Dirt Just Keeps on Coming

Been off for a bit. The weather swings wildly in my neck of the woods, and you just gotta bless ibuprofin when the pressure headaches hit.

Good to see the pressure being kept up on the farce that is the Official Story of 9-11. People are not as stupid as the PTB think, especially at SOTT who are experts at sorting the gems from the noise. Stuff like this for instance.

We already knew that the 9/11 Commissioners had conflicts of interest. And we already knew that Philip Zelikow had huge conflicts of interest, which the new book The Commission explores.

But did you know that a 9/11 Commissioner recently said that all of the 9/11 Commission staff had a conflict of interest?

Specifically, 9/11 Commissioner and former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman just said on NBC Nightly news (video above):

"We purposely put together a staff that had - in a way - conflicts of interest" (3:48 into video)

He went on to say:

"All of the staff had, to a certain extent, some conflict of interest" (4:09 into video)

This is important because many people have assumed that -- even if Zelikow and the Commissioners had conflicts of interest -- the staff would at least do a thorough and unbiased job in investigating what happened on 9/11. We now know this is not true.

Indeed, Lehman strongly implies that the Commission was purposely set up so that every single person involved would have a conflict of interest which would prevent them from conducting an honest investigation.

Lehman himself is a textbook example of conflict of interest. In 1998, 9/11 Commission executive director Zelikow published an article in Foreign Affairs, the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, entitled Catastrophic Terrorism: Imagining the Transformative Event. Some two years later, PNAC picked up the Zelikow language, saying that the campaign to convince the public to allow expanded use of U.S. military force around the world "is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor". Lehman was a member of PNAC, and a signatory to PNAC's plea for "a new Pearl Harbor". See the video below and this essay.

When taken with other facts undermining the Commission's credibility (and see this), Lehman's revelation should completely destroy the idea that there has been any real investigation into 9/11
