Tommy Suharto


Convicted Bali bomber Ali Imron has been spotted in Starbucks coffee shop in Jakarta.

Reporters saw him laughing and joking with Brigadier-General Gorries Mere.

Tommy Suharto is supposed to be in jail for murdering a judge?

He’s been 'doing plenty of business deals and partying during his Jakarta jaunts'.


Laksamana, 19 August 2005, reports on Tommy Suharto who murdered a judge.

Tommy's Special Treatment A Sick Joke.

When former dictator Suharto’s youngest son Hutomo ‘Tommy’ Mandala Putra was sentenced to 15 years in jail in 2002 for murdering a Supreme Court judge, many felt the punishment was too lenient.

But it now appears the billionaire playboy could be released on probation as early as 2006 or 2007.

That’s because he is being given increasingly lengthy sentence remissions twice a year, while the Supreme Court earlier this year controversially cut five years off his rapidly diminishing prison term...

Critics say Tommy’s sentence cuts are proof the highly disreputable Indonesian justice system can still be threatened with violence by the corrupt, rich and powerful...

Tommy is supposed to be incarcerated on an island jail off the coast of Central Java, but in reality he’s visiting Jakarta every month for a week or more.

Such visits are purportedly for medical treatment for an alleged tumor behind his right eye, but rumor has it that he’s been doing plenty of business deals and partying during his Jakarta jaunts.

The 43-year-old has still managed to maintain considerable control over his Humpuss Group congolomerate.



John Pilger:

Suharto was put into power in Indonesia by Britain and America. Suharto was a military dictator.

'A million people were killed and a red carpet was rolled out for western capital. It was the start of globalisation in Asia, a model for the rest of the world, leaving a legacy of sweatshops and corruption.'

'Margaret Thatcher called Suharto "one of our very best and most valuable friends". John Major's foreign secretary, Douglas Hurd, championed the Suharto regime's "Asian values" (the unctuous code for lack of democracy and abuse of human rights). In 1997, Robin Cook's first trip abroad included Indonesia, where he shook hands warmly with Suharto.'


Suharto believes he was toppled by the CIA when the Americans grew tired of him.



The chronology of Tommy’s evil journey from corrupt playboy to fugitive murderer to pampered prisoner on regular leave to Jakarta.

January 15, 1998: At the height of the economic crisis, with people rioting over skyrocketing prices of basic commodities and soaring unemployment, Tommy arrives at a press conference in his blue Rolls Royce to announce that his much-criticized National Car project will continue despite losing tax breaks and credit privileges under a new IMF deal. The flaunting of his wealth at a time of national crisis furthered hatred of the super-rich Suharto clan.

May 21, 1998: Suharto resigns amid mass riots and nationwide demonstrations. Tommy and his five siblings are henceforth rarely seen in public. Pressure soon mounts for the Suharto clan to be tried for corruption.

April 5, 1999: Tommy and businessman Ricardo Gelael are prosecuted for corruption relating to a land scam that cost the state $11 million.

October 14, 1999: South Jakarta District Court acquits Tommy and Gelael of the graft charges.

November 10, 1999: The Attorney General's Office appeals the acquittals to the Supreme Court.

September 26, 2000: A panel of three Supreme Court judges, led by Syafiuddin Kartasasmita, sentences Tommy and Gelael to 18 months in jail each for corruption. Tommy’s lawyer had allegedly offered Kartasasmita a Rp200 million ($20,200) bribe for a favorable verdict.
October 5, 2000: Tommy meets with President Abdurrahman ‘Gus Dur’ Wahid at the Hotel Borobudur in Jakarta to request a presidential pardon.

October 6, 2000: Tommy has a second meeting with Wahid, this time at the Regent Hotel.

October 19, 2000: Tommy pays a Rp15 billion ($1.5 million) bribe to two “brokers” – professional swindler Sumadi and Muslim cleric Abdullah Sidiq Muin – after they promise to help him obtain a favorable judicial review or a presidential pardon.

November 2, 2000: Wahid refuses to give Tommy a presidential pardon.

November 3, 2000: Tommy is due to start serving his sentence but instead goes on the run. Police seem incapable or unwilling to find him.

July 26, 2001: Supreme Court judge Syafiuddin Kartasasmita is assassinated by two gunmen on a motorcycle in broad daylight in Central Jakarta.

August 6, 2001: Noval Hadad and Raden Maulawarman are arrested for the murder of the judge. They told police that Tommy supplied them with guns and paid them Rp100 million for the murder.

August 6, 2001: Police seize guns, grenades and ammunition at Jakarta residences rented by Tommy.

October 1, 2001: The Supreme Court controversially overturns Tommy’s corruption conviction and 18 month jail sentence, claiming he could not be held accountable for the activities of his company. Despite a public outcry, senior politicians such as Akbar Tanjung and Hamzah Haz say the verdict must be respected and should not be questioned.

November 28, 2001: After more than one year on the run, Tommy gives himself up – or is arrested – at a house in South Jakarta and detained at city police headquarters. He spent some of his time on the lam living with ex-model Lani Banjaranti, who was eight months pregnant at the time of his arrest.

February 20, 2002: Tommy is transferred to a luxury private cell at Cipinang jail in East Jakarta after police handed over his case file to the Jakarta public prosecutor’s office.

May 8, 2002: Central Jakarta District Court sentences gunmen Noval Hadad and Raden Maulawarman to life in prison for the killing of Kartasasmita. Presiding judge Amiruddin Zakaria makes no direct link to Tommy’s responsibility for the murder. The prosecution had sought only 14-year sentences for the pair. Despite initially confessing that Tommy had paid them to carry out the hit, the gunmen later recanted their statements in court, claiming they had actually been contracted by an unknown ethnic Chinese businessman, Frans, to collect a Rp1.2 billion debt from a person whose identity was not revealed to them. This was widely interpreted as hogwash aimed at covering Tommy’s tracks. Tommy was never produced as a witness during the trial, always claiming to be too sick.

May 8, 2002: South Jakarta District Court sentences Tommy’s former childhood friend Dodi Harjito to four years in prison for his involvement in planning the judge's murder. Harjito allegedly introduced Tommy to the hitmen and purchased the motorbike used on the day of the killing.

July 26, 2002: Central Jakarta District Court sentences Tommy to 15 years in jail for murder, fleeing justice, and illegal possession of firearms, explosives and ammunition. Tommy failed to show up for the verdict, claiming to be sick. Three days later he appeared healthy playing badminton at Cipinang.

August 15, 2002: Tommy is transferred from Cipinang jail to Batu jail on Nusakambangan island, off the southern coast of Central Java. He shares a cell alongside his father’s former golfing buddy, timber tycoon Bob Hasan, who is serving a six-year sentence for corruption. Hasan was released in February 2004 after serving only four years of his sentence. His most recent public appearance was the July 7, 2005, wedding of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s son First Lieutenant Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono and former covergirl Annisa Larasati Pohan.

August 17, 2002: Tommy gets an Independence Day remission of 1 month, even though he has been serving his sentence for less than four weeks. A 1999 presidential decree stipulates that a prisoner has to have been in jail for at least six months to have the right to remission.

December 6, 2002: Tommy gets an Idul Fitri remission of 1 month.

August 17, 2003: Tommy gets an Independence Day remission of 5 months and 15 days.

November 25, 2003: Tommy gets an Idul Fitri remission of 1 month and 15 days.

April 2004: Tommy is allowed out of prison for two weeks, ostensibly for an operation at Central Jakarta’s Gatot Subroto Army Hospital to remove a tumor behind his left eye.

August 5, 2004: Authorities ban Tommy’s ex-model girlfriend Sandy Harun from visiting him after she and three of her friends allegedly spent three nights in his cell.

August 17, 2004: Tommy gets an Independence Day remission of 7 months and 10 days.
November 9, 2004: Tommy gets an Idul Fitri remission of 2 months.

December 2004: Tommy makes another week-long visit to Jakarta, again ostensibly for medical treatment. Since then he has been allowed to visit Jakarta for one week every month for “medical treatment” to check whether an alleged eye tumor is benign. Prison authorities insist the regular leave does not signify preferential treatment but is permitted for “humanitarian reasons”.

June 24, 2005: The Supreme Court reduces Tommy’s 15 year sentence to 10 years on appeal. The panel of five judges responsible for the ruling was led by Supreme Court chief justice Bagir Manan, who said the charge of fleeing justice should not have carried any penalty. The decision was widely criticized and prompted speculation the judges had either been given bribes or death threats. After all, Tommy has already proved he can murder judges who cross him.

July 18, 2005: Tempo news magazine reveals that Tommy is planning to invest in the renovation of Jakarta’s lucrative Tanah Abang textile market, which was burned down in 2003.

August 17, 2005: Tommy’s sentence is cut by 1 year and 5 days.

2008: Tommy is widely predicted to be released, enabling him to more freely indulge his passions for fast cars, beautiful women, gambling and corrupt business activities. Only six years or fewer for murder? It still pays to be a Suharto.


Israeli presence in Iraq?


According to judicial-inc:

"General Tommy Franks is a Zionist Jew of Russian descent, and General Natonski who flattened Fallujah, is a Zionist Jew of Polish descent

"General Natonski let his troops flatten the town of Fallujah, and kill an estimated 6,000, of which 80% were civilians who were decimated in indiscriminate air strikes and artillery barrages.

"The Pentagon sent US officers to Israel to 'observe' urban warfare techniques (bulldozing houses and shooting kids). Now, you have IDF officers in Iraq, 'advising' our Marine command on how to carry out counter-insurgency operations.

"A Mossad bomb making facility blew up in Kirkuk, when a bomb prematurely exploded during manufacture.

"There are 25,000 mercenaries operating in Iraq, hired through such Israeli-connected companies like CACI, Titan, Zapata, and Triple Canopy. Mercenaries working for Zapata, a firm that handles bomb disposal, were caught and detained, after ambushing Marines in Fallujah.
The mercenaries are $200,000-a-year killers, that are led by $350,000-a-year Israeli military veterans."

Police chief- Lockerbie evidence was faked


According to the newspaper 'Scotland on Sunday' , 28 August 2005, a Scottish Police chief has revealed that the Lockerbie evidence was faked.

The 1989 Lockerbie Bomb incident killed 270 people.

The former police chief has given lawyers a signed statement claiming that evidence in the Lockerbie bombing trial was fabricated.

The officer has testified that the CIA planted the fragment of circuit board crucial in convicting Al Megrahi.

The police chief's identity has not yet been revealed.

According to the Scotsman, "the claims pose a potentially devastating threat to the reputation of the entire Scottish legal system."

The officer is supporting claims by a former CIA agent that his bosses "wrote the script" to incriminate Libya.

An insider told Scotland on Sunday that the retired officer approached them after Megrahi's appeal - before a bench of five Scottish judges - was dismissed in 2002.

The insider said: "He said he believed he had crucial information. A meeting was set up and he gave a statement that supported the long-standing rumours that the key piece of evidence, a fragment of circuit board from a timing device that implicated Libya, had been planted by US agents.

"Asked why he had not come forward before, he admitted he'd been wary of breaking ranks, afraid of being vilified.

"He also said that at the time he became aware of the matter, no one really believed there would ever be a trial. When it did come about, he believed both accused would be acquitted. When Megrahi was convicted, he told himself he'd be cleared at appeal."

The source added: "When that also failed, he explained he felt he had to come forward.

"He has confirmed that parts of the case were fabricated and that evidence was planted. At first he requested anonymity, but has backed down and will be identified if and when the case returns to the appeal court."

The evidence that linked the bombing of Pan Am 103 to Megrahi was a tiny fragment of circuit board found in a wooded area many miles from Lockerbie.

The fragment was later identified by the FBI's Thomas Thurman as being part of a sophisticated timer device used to detonate explosives.

Thurman has been revealed as a fraud who had given false evidence in American murder trials. He had little in the way of scientific qualifications.

In 2003, a retired CIA officer gave a statement to Megrahi's lawyers in which he alleged evidence had been planted.

It has long been rumoured the fragment was planted to implicate Libya for political reasons.

Following the Lockerbie Bomb trial, legal observers, including senior United Nations officials, expressed doubts about the verdict.

Internal documents emerged from the offices of the US Defence Intelligence Agency. Dated 1994, they described the PFLP-GC, and not the Libyans, as the Lockerbie bombers.

A source close to Megrahi's defence said: "Britain and the US were telling the world it was Libya, but in their private communications they acknowledged that they knew it was the PFLP-GC.

"The case is starting to unravel largely because when they wrote the script, they never expected to have to act it out. Nobody expected agreement for a trial to be reached, but it was, and in preparing a manufactured case, mistakes were made."


Livingston - a Labour candidate - a murder


Robin Cook was MP for Livingston in Scotland. A by-election is to be held in Livingston. Jim Devine is the candidate of Blair's New Labour Party.


According to the Daily Record newspaper, 27 August 2005, Jim Devine has admitted to having had a number of affairs.

Union official Jim Devine, 52, who was selected as the party's candidate for Livingston on Thursday night, also confessed to a drink driving conviction.


Most Scottish newspapers are still concentrating on the Rory Blackhall murder in Livingston.

A stranger wearing a military-style deerstalker and military-style jacket is reportedly the prime suspect.

The plan always was: Iraq to be divided up, just like Yugoslavia. Saudi Arabia may be next.


Michel Collon, at iacenter.org , suggests that the US plan for Iraq was to divide it up into three mini-states 'and then pit them against one another'.

Collon suggests this was also the plan for Yugoslavia.

The New York Times, 25 November 2003, refers to the plan for Iraq by Leslie Gelb of the Council of Foreign Affairs.

The objective for the USA according to Gelb:

"To put most of its money and troops where they would do the most good quickly - with the Kurds and Shiites. The United States could extricate most of its forces from the so-called Sunni Triangle, north and west of Baghdad.... American officials could then wait for the troublesome and domineering Sunnis, without oil or oil revenues, to moderate their ambitions or suffer the consequences."

In 1982, Oded Yinon, an official from the Israeli Foreign Affairs office, wrote: "To dissolve Iraq is even more important for us than dissolving Syria. In the short term, it's Iraqi power that constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. The Iran-Iraq war tore Iraq apart and provoked its downfall. All manner of inter-Arab conflict help us and accelerate our goal of breaking up Iraq into small, diverse pieces."

In the case of Yugoslavia, according to Michel Collon:

"Berlin, and then Washington, discreetly financed and armed racist extremists, who were nostalgic for World War II.

"This made civil war almost inevitable because the IMF and the World Bank had plunged Yugoslavia into bankrupt to make it submit to triumphant neo-liberalism after the fall of the Berlin Wall...

"All of the peoples of the former Yugoslavia have been plunged into misery and unemployment, which is worse now than it has ever been.

"Meanwhile, multinational corporations have taken the upper hand in controlling the country's wealth...

"For Gelb, the civil war in Yugoslavia was a great success for the U.S. because it permitted the breakup of a country that resisted multinationals...

"Divide in order to conquer. As always.

"The Britons carefully organized the division of Ireland, India and Pakistan as well as other places in the world.

"The influential U.S. strategist, Zbigniew Brzezinski, wants to divide Russia into three countries in order to isolate Moscow from oil reserves.

"The CIA also has its "own plans" to divide Saudi Arabia...


French sex scandal


Brian McNair, in the Sunday Herald 28 August 2005, explained:

Paris Match has published photos of the wife of French interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy.

The photos show the lady in New York with her alleged 'beau', businessman Richard Attias.

According to McNair: "The two were reported to have been seeing each other all summer, holding hands in restaurants, and generally behaving like love-struck teenagers..."

Mr Sarkozy might be France’s next president.

President Mitterand, ran a parallel family and fathered an illegitimate child.

The police and the Madrid Bombs

The Madrid bombs seem to be like the London bombs.


The excellent Barcepundit http://barcepundit-english.blogspot.com/ has the following (some links have been left out):

Tuesday, May 17, 2005

Shortly after March 11, ABC had a world exclusive: a photograph of the only backpack that hadn't exploded and which had 'mysteriously' appeared the night after the blasts in a police station, in a room where all personal belongings that had been recovered were carried to. The problem: according to Madrid's newspaper El Mundo, it's a staged photo op:

The American TV network ABC's news division showed a false image of the backpack that did not explode on March 11, 2004, according to reporter Fernando Múgica in the Spanish daily El Mundo.

According to Múgica, at a Madrid police station "the officers wanted to help the ABC reporters, but when the camera crew came, they didn't have the backpack that had contained the bomb there, so one of the officers showed them a similar backpack which was the property of another officer."

Said Mugica, "I don't know whether the network knew this or simply accepted that the bag they were shown was the real one."

A sports bag containing an unexploded bomb was discovered in the wreckage of one of the train cars.

A cell phone found in the bag, and the fingerprints on the phone, led Spanish police to Jamal Zougam, the suspected ringleader of the Madrid attack. The unexploded bomb contained about 22 pounds of a whitish-colored plastic explosive. Also packed in the bag was a large quantity of bolts and nails, the potentially deadly shrapnel.

However, the Spain Herald's story touches just one aspect of the much longer, and much more disturbing account by El Mundo

According to the journalistic investigation, the Tedax officers (Spanish police bomb squad) hid for three months to the investigating judge that an X-ray done to the real (not to the staged for ABC) backpack showed that there was no way it could have ever exploded since it had unconnected cables. Something odd, since it had always been said that the bombers were technically proficient.

At the same time, the Tedax chief cellphone number appeared misteriously in the phonebook of Carmen Toro, allegedly one -together with his brother and husband- of the suppliers of the dynamite used for the March 11 bombs. When the investigating judge called the number, a chief's aide answered the phone and said that it belonged to one of the guys in the squad, "who used the boss' name as a nickname" (can I put a hundred exclamation marks here?).

Remember: this backpack was the only that didn't explode and appeared from no one knows where. But it was what was found in it what allowed the opposition to make the case that it was Islamic terrorists -as the Socialists were saying- and not ETA -as Aznar's government had initially said-, for two reasons: first, the kind of explosive, Goma 2 ECO instead of Tytadine (the usual in the latest ETA attacks).

However, the conclusion that the exploded backpacks had Goma 2 ECO in it was made because of what was found on the unexploded one, not on actual forensic analysis of the explosion site, since apparently once it's gone off it's absolutely impossible to know for sure, being both Goma 2 ECO and Tytadine two brands of generic dynamite.

And second, because of the SIM card inside the phone. But, if the cables had been connected, the bomb would have gone off not by a phone call or another electronic trigger, but by the internal's alarm clock which was programmed to turn the phone on and vibrate.

Most phones don't need a SIM card for that, but the model chosen by guys who were alleged phone experts (since they owned a phone shop) was the Mitsubishi Trium, precisely one of the few ones who need a SIM card inserted to function as a mere alarm clock.

And it was the analysis of the SIM card which, less than 48 hours after the blasts, allowed the police to arrest the alleged perpetrators...

Today's edition of El Mundo reports that the cellphones used for March 11 were unlocked in a phone shop owned by... a Spanish police officer.

And not just any police officer: it was Maussili Kalaji, a Syrian born citizen who had been granted Spanish citizenship several years ago and entered the police department when he arrived in Spain after his past as an Al Fatah member and as an agent for the Soviets' intelligence services.

Apparently as soon as he left the police academy he was assigned to infiltrate extremist groups and so he got acquainted with such nice guys as Abu Dadah, currently under trial for the 9/11 plot and who will be on trial again in the future for his role on March 11.

He also was assigned to the security detail of judge Garzón, now on leave and teaching at a New York's university and who insisted that, no matter what Aznar was saying on March 11, he knew from minute 1 that he knew the bombings had been by Islamic terrorists, not ETA. I think we know now why.

And that's not all: Kalaji's sister was the translator for the police in charge of translated the wiretapped conversations between the alleged March 11 culprits before the bombings; and his ex-wife, also a police officer, was the first to arrive at the scene where another key evidence pointing to Islamic terrorists and not ETA was found: a white van with detonators and some tapes with Koranic verses. Socialists blame Aznar's government for hiding this but, of course, maybe its guys got there first...


Police linked to Madrid bombs?


Ralf Streck, 26.08.2005, wrote 'Spaniens "Aufklärung" der Anschläge vom 11.März 2004 wird immer seltsamer.'

The following is a rough paraphrase and may not be entirely accurate :

A judge wants the Spanish newspaper El Mundo to hand over documents concerning the Madrid bombs.

The newspaper had published details suggesting the involvement of the security forces in the Madrid bomb blasts. The police are alleged to have known in advance that the bombings were going to take place.

Juan del Olmo, the judge at the national Court of Justice, may take action against the newspaper.

"police controlled bosses of the Madrider of notices"

Mention has been made of the involvement of a policeman called Maussili Kalajis.


UK killed up to 13 million people? Media stayed silent?


Historian Mark Curtis has written:

1. 'Unpeople: Britain’s Secret Human Rights Abuses' (2004)
2. 'Web of Deceit: Britain’s Real Role in the World' (2003)

Published by Vintage.

Paul Cochrane, at Worldpress.org , 6 January 2005, reviewed Curtis's books. He wrote:

According to new research, Britain bears “significant responsibility” since 1945 for the direct or indirect deaths of 8.6 million to 13.5 million people throughout the world from military interventions and at the hands of regimes strongly supported by Britain.

Curtis said he came up with the term “Unpeople” because he thought it adequately described the British government’s attitude towards people who are expendable in Britain’s pursuit of economic and political goals.

“Last year,” Curtis said in a phone interview, “there was a British army officer who was quoted in Iraq as saying the Americans view the Iraqis only as Untermenschen, the Nazi concept of subhuman. In a way, the British have no real different regard for Iraqis than Americans."

According to Curtis:

1. The purpose of British foreign policy is, and always has been, to ensure that 'the global economy is organized to benefit western corporations.'

2. "Britain is a very centralized decision making system at the end of the day, and there is only a democratic façade really.”



'Web of Deceit. Britain's Real Role in the World' by Mark Curtis was reviewed by David Cromwell at medialens.org

Using formerly secret UK government files, Curtis describes the complicity of successive British governments, whether Labour or Conservative, in supporting the US and in repressing people in such countries as Kenya and Malayia.

Cromwell writes:

"At the Labour party conference in 2001, Blair declared: 'I tell you, if Rwanda happened again today as it did in 1994, when a million people were slaughtered in cold blood, we would have a moral duty to act.'

"The mainstream media reported those words without challenge, omitting to mention that the British government had contributed to genocide in Rwanda."

As Curtis points out:

'Britain used its diplomatic weight to reduce severely a UN force that, according to military officers on the ground, could have prevented the killings. It then helped ensure the delay of other plans for intervention, which sent a direct green light to the murderers in Rwanda to continue. Britain also refused to provide the capability for other states to intervene, while blaming the lack of such capability on the UN.'

Curtis refers to the deaths of 3 million in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Curtis writes:

"Britain sold arms to Zimbabwe, Namibia and Angola, who intervened to support the DRC regime, at the same time as supplying Uganda and Rwanda, who were fighting the DRC and its allies."

The International Institute for Security Studies in South Africa commented:

"Britain is inflaming the situation by arming both sides."

Curtis demonstrates the immorality of British foreign policy in such places as:

1. Iraq
3. Kosovo
4. Indonesia
5. Israel
6. Russia
7. Turkey
8. Saudi Arabia

Curtis describes how the media helps the elite by reporting only some of the truth.

Curtis explains that "the media definition of 'objective' in reality means working within the consensus among the elite."

He continues: "The liberal intelligentsia in Britain is in my view guilty of helping to weave a collective web of deceit.. To read many mainstream commentators' writings on Britain's role in the world is to enter a surreal, Kafkaesque world where the reality is often the direct opposite of what is contended and where the startling assumptions are frighteningly supportive of state power."

The Guardian's Polly Toynbee wrote that Blair's speech at the October 2001 Labour party conference "will stand as a moment British politics became vigorously, unashamedly, social democratic. The day it became missionary and almost Swedish in pursuit of universal justice". Toynbee noted Blair's "noble sentiments for a new world order", and that he declared "war on poverty, tyranny and injustice while barely using the word 'war' at all". The article was entitled: "He promised to take on the world. And I believed him".

The media, including the BBC and the Guardian, spread Blair's lies before the Iraq war.

"7/7 Bombers" movements Physically Impossible


"7/7 Bombers" movements Physically Impossible
By: FinancialOutrage on: 26.08.2005


On 7/7 it was physically impossible for the 'supposed' London bombers to be filmed at 7.22 am at Luton Station and also catch a train which arrived at Kings Cross prior to being filmed at 8 .26 am

The London Police claim the bombers were photographed at the Luton station, then rode the 7:40 train to King's Cross, where they were photographed again. But according to the actual train timetable, the 7:40 train was cancelled that day and even had it not been cancelled, would not have arrived in time for the men to be photographed at King's Cross at 8:26.

Thameslink supplied 'Actual Train Times' as opposed to Original Timetable

Further Details Regarding the Time it Takes to Walk to the Platform and why the 7.24 AM Train was NOT an Option

If you go to Luton station you will clearly see that it takes 3 minutes 35 seconds to get to the platform, without even buying a ticket, never mind four individuals each buying four individual tickets, and carrying large rucksacks.

You have to go through the ground floor entrance, up a long flight of stairs, turn left along a long passageway to the ticket office, then you have to go half way downstairs, view the 6 screens to see which platform you are going from, and along another corridor and then down the stairs to find the platform.

The police's official press releases and statements said that they got on the 7.40 AM train and arrived at around 8.20 AM - that is the official MANTRA - it's quoted everywhere. Nowhere did they ever say that they got on a train at 7.24 AM.

There are cameras all over the place, particularly noticeable at the upstairs ticket office and upstairs entrance to the actual station. If they were actually there they would be filmed buying their tickets, they would be filmed on the platform, they would be filmed on the train etc.

Sir Ian BLIAR and his colleagues at the police have just looked at the timetable some eight days later to fix their story to set up the four innocent 'patsies', arrogantly knowing that the compliant UK media would not question them, never thinking that all the trains from Luton to Kings Cross were messed up that day prior to the 'Bombings'.

It is ABSOLUTELY PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to do all this in TWO minutes.

A. All witness information supplied was cross checked with information supplied by Thameslink.

B. A joint trial took 3 Minutes 35 Seconds to walk from the ground floor entrance, up and over to the ticket office, and back down to the London Platforms 1 & 3, without even including any time to purchase a ticket.

A query has been raised by a web site in Australia and a web site in the US, regarding the 7.24 AM train. It is more fully answered here:
It is ABSOLUTELY PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to do all this in TWO minutes

C. The most senior Thameslink spokesperson at Luton is called Chris Hudson. He will not answer our E Mails. chris.hudson@thameslink.co.uk

D. It is now clear why the 7/7 commuter interviewed by D Starbuck did not mention the 7.30 AM train that left at 7.38 AM. The London trains normally go from platforms 1 & 3. To a regular traveller, the train at platform 4 would have appeared to be about to set off in the opposite direction - See Sources Of Information No. 3.

Bush, Bin Laden, Drugs....


Wayne Madsen has some information about the bin Ladens

On 21 August 2005, Wayne Madsen reported:

"One of the top U.S. contractors in Iraq was intimately involved in the Bin Laden global financial empire. The U.S. construction and engineering firm Fluor Corp. has raked in handsome profits from reconstruction contracts awarded by the Pentagon in Iraq. Fluor, which received the lucrative contracts because it was included by the Pentagon on an "invitation only" short list of eligible contractors, has contributed over $500,000 to Republican candidates since 2000. Kenneth Oscar, a Fluor Vice President, was the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Procurement and was conveniently in charge of a $60 billion budget. One of Fluor's board members is retired Admiral Bobby Ray Inman, a former deputy director of the CIA and National Security Agency (NSA) director.

"What is not known about Fluor is its long standing ties to the Bin Laden family's worldwide financial interests. WMR has recently obtained the copy of a French intelligence report on the Saudi Investment Company Organization (SICO), an operation controlled by the Bin Ladens. The report reveals that Fluor was an integral part of the Bin Laden financial empire through a network of interlocking off-shore companies and directorships registered in such locations as Curacao, the Cayman Islands, London, the Netherlands, and Virginia."

Madsen continues:

"Additional European intelligence provided to WMR confirms that Osama bin Laden has been a major kingpin in drug shipments to Europe and North America since 1991, when he established a major drug smuggling network in Sudan and Saudi Arabia.

"When Bin Laden moved to Afghanistan in 1996, he re-established the drug smuggling networks initially set up by the CIA during the Mujaheddin war against the Soviets.

"The drug baron who headed up the Afghan heroin supply network for Bin Laden was code named 'Kandahar.' The drug smuggling operations were based alongside Bin Laden's terrorist training and weapons of mass destruction procurement activities in Osama Bin Laden's "Arab enclave" located at Khalden in Paktia province.

"According to a French intelligence report marked 'CONFIDENTIEL DEFENSE/USAGE STRICTEMENT NATIONAL' (Defense confidential, 'French Eyes Only'), U.S. and British intelligence elements continued to control Osama Bin Laden and his Khalden-based terrorist corps as of 1995, fully two years after 'Al Qaeda' was found to be involved in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and one year prior to the Khobar Tower bombings in Saudi Arabia, the point at which the late FBI counter-terrorism agent John O'Neill began linking Al Qaeda to the Saudi royal family and certain American 'interests.'

"The Al Qaeda drug supply network remains in operation and continues to generate hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue for Bin Laden's global operations. All during the rule of the Taliban, Afghan drug mules hauling heroin abroad received a standard request for assistance letter from Mullah Mohammad Omar, the one-eyed Taliban leader. Mullah Omar dispatched a number of envoys to Washington, DC to have talks with senior Bush administration officials prior to 911. They all carried the same assistance request letter.

"The Bin Laden drug network also intersects with Geneva-based financial entities established by George H. W. Bush while he was CIA director and Vice President and President of the United States.

"Bin Laden and Bush money are held in some of the same financial tranches in Switzerland, the Isle of Man, and the Bahamas.

"The Bush family off-shore money tranches originated with gold bars and jewels spirited out of the Philippines upon the overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos in 1986. The Marcos fortune was the price exacted by Vice President Bush for his being granted asylum in Hawaii. The gold bars were transported from the Philippines to the International Diamond Exchange Vaults near Rockefeller Center. A CIA proprietary firm called Oceaneering International of Houston procured barges to move some of the gold from secured warehouses to a specially-configured Boeing 747 which then flew the cargo to New York. Oceaneering sealifted the remaining gold to Oregon. After George W. Bush’s victory in 2000, the last of the gold and jewels stored in New York was moved to UBS Bank in Zurich. Marcos and Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi set about to create Five Star Trust in 1983 as a means to create a vehicle to use the Philippine wealth to create and funnel fungible assets abroad. In 1989, Five Star Trust was officially established in the Isle of Man by a Houston-based attorney who was a close friend of the Bush family.

"WMR is now in possession of a UBS letter to the Swiss Federal Police, dated October 30, 2001, which was in response to an October 2, 2001 request by the police to look for Bin Laden family 'terrorist funds' (Terroristengeldern).

"The UBS letter states that two terrorist-related financial activities were detected with regard to the movement by Osama Bin Laden of suspicious funds in 1990 and 1991. (This was shortly after Bush's Philippine tranche of gold and jewels was established at UBS).

"On 20/08/90, there was a $450,000 transfer of funds into Osama Bin Laden's account. The deposit included "jewels." On 28/10/91, there was a $482,000 transfer of funds into Osama Bin Laden's account from the Saudi American Bank in Jeddah, the same bank Israeli intelligence directly tied into Saudi terrorist funding in the West Bank...

"Just a few weeks before the 911 attacks, a UBS Warburg/Paine Webber broker named Chung Wu advised his investors to sell their Enron stock, whereafter UBS quickly fired the broker.

"In addition, the report regarding the mysterious Bush-connected Geneva and Zurich money mover who transferred $10 million and $10 billion in Saudi and other funds to Texas in 1995 and 1996, respectively, has been positively linked to Al Taqwa, a Swiss entity tied to 'Al Qaeda.'

"A $50,000 check drawn on the 1995 funds was written to Fayyaz Ahmed, one of the 911 hijackers. The 1996 $10 billion transfer was for Enron's fraudulent LJM Cayman Islands front and was to finance a deal with the Taliban to build the trans-Afghan CentGas pipeline. (Enron, Halliburton, Unocal, Zalmay Khalilzad, Hamid Karzai, and Mullah Omar were all involved in the 1996 CentGas negotiations, which were held in Tashkent and Houston).

"WMR is also in possession of an audit letter from Ernst & Young giving a clean bill of health to an 'Al Qaeda'-affiliated 'charity' based in Kuwait, Lajnat al Dawa al Islamiya, which, in reality, supplied Taliban and Al Qaeda forces with assistance in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

"WMR can also confirm that the Bush administration's cozying up to the Sudanese government (which once provided Osama Bin Laden safe haven) is another indication that the Bush family continues to engage in joint financial activities with Osama Bin Laden.

"It is likely that Sudan's southern Christian rebel leader John Garang was encouraged to enter into a peace agreement with Khartoum in a ploy for him to let down his guard. Just days after Garang became Sudan's Vice President, he was killed in a suspicious helicopter crash along the Ugandan-Sudanese border, an area where Pentagon Special Operations forces are present. As Vice President, Garang was in a position to discover Bin Laden's past and present activities in Sudan, including those that involve Bush family interests.

While Sudan claims it no longer has any relations with Osama Bin Laden, it can now be revealed that Osama Bin Laden continues to operate the Al Shamal Islamic Bank in Sudan that was identified by the State Department in 1996 as being linked to Al Qaeda and Bin Laden.

"The 'Al Qaeda' leader invested $50 million in the bank. The bank was used in 1993 to transfer $210,000 to a bank in Tucson, Arizona to finance the purchase of a plane to fly Stinger missiles from Pakistan to Sudan. The plane was flown to Khartoum. (According to the French intelligence report, Bin Laden was still under U.S. and British intelligence control at the time of the plane purchase and in 1993 Sudan was on the State Department's state sponsors of terrorism list).

"It is significant that Al Shamal's assets were never frozen by the United States nor was it designated a terrorist-related organization. The Sudanese claim that Al Shamal is no longer in operation and the Bush administration has not countered these claims. However, in October 2004 this photo (below) was taken in Khartoum (the bank was open for business and very busy)...."




The US government is wary of Islamist regimes?


On 24 August 2005, Wayne Madsen reports that the Bush administration 'has established links with the pro-"Islamist" junta in Mauritania, led by Col. Ely Ould Mohamed Vall'.

Vall is 'a recipient of past U.S. military training'.

'The Pentagon's parallel neocon intelligence network, in cooperation with Algerian intelligence and private military contractors linked to Halliburton, ... are active in the Sahel from Mauritania and Morocco to Chad and Libya.'

Robber barons? The Bushes, the Vatican, bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and China's Communist overlords


Chris Floyd, 23August 2005, at sianews, wrote about a vast web of sinister alliances.

Reportedly, the network links such people as the Bushes, the Vatican, bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and China's Communist overlords.

The alleged crimes of the network include prostitution, pedophilia, mass death and war profiteering.

It's all about 'business', according to Floyd.

Floyd writes that 'Bush boys' do business by 'trawling the globe for sweetheart deals and gushers of blood money from the war and terror they foment.'

Floyd claims that the central figure is Neil Bush.

Reportedly, Neil Bush cost American taxpayers $1 billion when a savings-and-loan, which 'he had ruined with secret insider loans to his own business partners', had to be bailed out.

Floyd sees the Bushes as robber barons, not capitalists.

George W Bush's first business 'was jump-started with secret cash from the bin Ladens, laundered through their U.S. frontman, James Bath - who was also hired by W.'s dad... to set up offshore companies for shifting CIA money and aircraft between Texas and Saudi Arabia, the Texas Observer reported.'

Floyd lists some alleged Neil Bush deals:

1. A partnership with one of China's own influence-peddling oligarchs: Jiang Mianheng, son of former President Jiang Zemin.

He's paying Bush $2 million for "advice" in the semiconductor industry.

2. Neil Bush earned $1 million for "introductions and advice" from the CP Group, a Bangkok conglomerate.

According to Floyd: 'In return for supplying his paymasters with a golden conduit to the White House, Neilsy received a special perk: free prostitutes, served up fresh to his hotel room during business trips to Asia...'

3. Neil Bush and Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI, were board members of a Swiss institute devoted to "interfaith dialogue."

'Dunn & Bradstreet lists the supposedly nonprofit foundation as a "management trust," designed for "purposes other than education, religion, charity or research."'

Ratzinger supported George W Bush in the presidential election. Bush reaped an extra six percent of the Catholic vote.

4. Neil Bush has a long-time partnership with Syrian-born businessman Jamal Daniel.

According to Floyd:

'Daniel, also a boardmate in the Swiss adventure with Ratzinger, is a principal in New Bridge Strategies, a firm set up by top Bush insiders to steer corporate clients to the fountains of blood money flowing from George W.'s conquest of Iraq.

'The company makes frequent use of Neilsy's "introductions" and Middle East connections, The Financial Times reported. It also operates a profitable sideline in mercenaries.

'Daniel brings his own unique connections to the regional porkfest: His family was instrumental in the creation of the Baath Party in Syria and Iraq, The Financial Times noted.

'And of course, the Bush Family's covert arm, the CIA - whose headquarters bears the name of George Sr. - assisted not one, but two, Baathist coups in Iraq, including the bloody upheaval that brought Saddam Hussein's family faction to power, historian Roger Morris reported.

'Still later, the CIA would supply Osama bin Laden and his fellow extremists with weapons, money and terrorist training: a shrewd investment whose long-term consequences - the current "war on terror" - are still paying fat dividends for Bush coffers.'

Tony Blair, bin Laden, Carlyle Group, Halliburton.


The Bush family and the bin Ladens are linked to the Carlyle Group.
Tony Blair may go to work for Carlyle.
What links are there between UK politicians and Halliburton?
Where might the Israeli-Russian Mafia come into all this?


The Wall Street Journal, September 28-29 2001, reported:

"Mr. bin Laden's family... is an investor in a fund established by the Carlyle Group."

Linked to the Carlyle group, according to the Wall St. Journal, are the Bush family and other top Republicans.

"In recent years, former U.S. President George Bush, ex-Secretary of State James Baker and ex-Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci have made the pilgrimage to the bin Laden family's headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia...

"A Carlyle executive said the bin Laden family committed $2 million through a London investment arm in Carlyle Partners II Fund...

"But a foreign financier with ties to the bin Laden family says the family's overall investment with Carlyle is considerably larger. He called the $2 million merely an initial contribution. again."


Wayne Madsen, 2004-11-01, wrote:

"Bin Laden, whose family was aided by the Bush’s during the 1970s and 1980s in acquiring airports, aircraft, secret bank accounts, front companies, and real estate throughout Texas for the purpose of weapons smuggling and money laundering, came through for Bush by launching the very kind of “Pearl Harbor-level” attack called for by Bush’s ideological allies serving with the Israeli-Russian Mafia-funded Project for the New American Century (PNAC).

"Bin Laden financial help to Bush’s various failed oil ventures, including Arbusto, Spectrum 7 and Harken totaled $1 million over the years.

"Dick Cheney, whose wife Lynne receives Israeli-Russian Mafia funds to support her $125,000 chair at the American Enterprise Institute, immediately used the 911 attacks to consolidate the Bush regime’s hold on power, generate windfall war profits for his old company Halliburton and take the nation’s attention of the biggest corporate collapse in the history of the United States -- the Enron implosion."

The UK's Ministry of Defence and Halliburton


On the 22 August 2005, the Guardian reported that:

1. UK defence ministers wanted to build docks to refit nuclear-powered submarines.

2. They were warned that there were doubts about the competence of a firm called DML which is partly owned by Halliburton.

3. The UK defence ministers gave the contract to DML.

The estimated cost of the project then nearly doubled to more than £900m.

Halliburton is linked to the US vice-president, Dick Cheney.

The contract has been described as "probably the largest nuclear construction project in Europe in recent times".

In a previously secret evaluation of DML, MoD officials concluded that the firm failed eight of the 10 criteria measuring its competence, and the company should not be "considered a suitable organisation to be awarded the contract".

In 1997, the Ministry of Defence, under the Tory defence secretary Michael Portillo, awarded Halliburton the contract.


CCTV - de Menezes - more police 'lies'?


The Daily Mail 23/08/05:

London Underground sources insisted that at least three of the four cameras trained on the Stockwell Tube platform were in full working order.

This appears to contradict police assertions that 'technical problems' meant no footage exists of the innocent Brazilian's final moments before he was killed by marksmen after being wrongly identified as a potential suicide bomber.

The sources also rejected suggestions that the cameras had not been fitted with new tapes after police took away footage from the previous day, July 21, when suspects in the failed bombings caught trains there...

A senior rail industry source said yesterday: "There is absolutely nothing to suggest that the CCTV cameras were not working. If a tape is taken away to be studied, it is automatically replaced."

Another official said: "At least three of the four cameras were working. There were no reports of anything wrong with them."

Extracts from a police report, however, claimed that examination of the platform cameras had produced no footage. It said: "It has been established that there has been a technical problem with the CCTV equipment on the relevant platform and no footage exists."

It said there was no footage, either, from CCTV in the carriage where Mr de Menezes was shot eight times at point-blank range.

The report said: "Although there was on-board CCTV in the train, due to previous incidents, the hard drive had been removed and not replaced."

The platform CCTV system is maintained by Tube Lines - a private sector consortium in charge of maintaining the Northern Line.

Sources at the company insist that the cameras were in working order...

The Leadership of the British Conservative (Tory) Party


The following comes from the excellent 5thnovember.blogspot:

Tory Brand Awareness

There has been much talk lately of "trashing the Tory brand" - Guido asks which brand?Here is Guido's cut out and keep guide to which brands matter in the Tory leadership stakes:-

David Davis is an ex-director of the heavily subsidised Tate & Lyle, where he masterminded the breaking of the dock union's old Dock Labour scheme. Even so, without the £127m of tax-payer subsidies last year, Tate & Lyle would have made a loss. Basher's leadership campaign is backed financially by Stanley Kalms of Dixons. Lord Kalm's is a major financier of the Conservative Party.

David Cameron is backed financially by Lord Harris of Carpet Right, and picks up the odd £27,000 a year from Urbium p.l.c., owners of establishments like Tiger Tiger where you can binge drink till all hours. Cheers!

Ken Clarke is the Tory brand leader in two senses - best known by the public and on the most corporate boards, he is in the fags, drugs and fund management businesses. All very profitable and all willing to support his leadership bid - if he stands. As leader he would have to take a pay-cut of course.

Some ill-informed types have suggested that Dr Fox's The Atlantic Bridge think-tank could be a conduit for Neo-Con dollars for the doctor's campaign. Guido hears that this bridge has collapsed - not a good omen. Pfizer, a company which takes billions out of the NHS and spends millions corrupting the political process, sponsored the bridge, now they don't. Coincidentally, he was the Health shadow, now he isn't.



Thailand, Malaysia, Malacca Straits


'Islamist' insurgency and security force reprisals have claimed more than 900 lives in the south of Thailand since January 2004.



Grim, at billroggio.com, 9 June 2005, explains that the Malacca Straits, between Indonesia and Thailand are of great importance to the world's economy because half the world's oil supply passes through them.


One obstacle to American control of the Straits is Malaysia.

Southern Thailand lies next to Malaysia.

The Youth Chief of Malaysia's opposition party, PAS, claimed in 2004 that 'the bombings in Bali and Jakarta were perpetrated by the CIA to discredit Muslims and that captured JI and al-Qaeda leader Hambali was also on the CIA payroll. After all, the PAS youth leader observed, "These kind of sophisticated bombs could only be bought by the U.S."'

Why is someone stirring things up in Southern Thailand and other parts of the region?



Sheldon W. Simon, of Arizona State University, gave an American viewpoint on the region at the end of 2004:

"The past year has witnessed the revival of what seem to be separatist attacks in the Thai south sufficiently serious that the Thaksin government has placed three provinces – Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat – under martial law. After armed attacks in January and April on security checkpoints and state-run schools to which the military responded with overwhelming force on Oct. 25, Thai troops killed 9 protestors at Tak Bai, arresting 80 others who suffocated after being piled in army trucks. For Malay-speaking Muslims in southern Thailand, there is a strong belief that their ethno-religious identity is under siege.

"While Thai security officials have cooperated with their Malaysian counterparts to arrest separatist leaders on both sides of the border, the large number of southern Thai Muslim deaths in 2004 have caused dismay in neighboring Malaysia and raised concerns throughout Southeast Asia as well as the United States that Muslim unrest in the region could become a new breeding ground for JI involvement. Hundreds of Malaysians demonstrated outside the Thai embassy in Kuala Lumpur after the October incident, and the prominent Thai newspaper, The Nation, cited a Thai intelligence report that fingered the Malaysian Islamist opposition party, PAS, as supporting southern Thai violence. Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir's suggestion that Bangkok grant political autonomy to the south was equally unhelpful...

"Both the Malaysian opposition and the government continued to snipe at U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and the U.S. war on terrorism. In early December, Foreign Minister Syed Hamid Albar stated that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, as well as the heavy tempo of terrorist operations in Afghanistan and Iraq show that U.S. efforts in the Middle East are not succeeding. Recently released from prison, popular Malaysian politician Anwar Ibrahim also weighed in, stating the President Bush's actions and "arrogance" had created a deeper rift between Muslims and the West."

Bangladesh and the CIA

Bangladesh, August 2005.

A wave of bomb blasts have killed a 10-year-old boy and a rickshaw puller and injured hundreds across Bangladesh.

A “powerful foreign ally” is suspected by some of being involved.

This phrase usually refers to Pakistan and its intelligence agency, the ISI.

The ISI is thought to be controlled by the CIA.



An American journalist, Lawrence Lifschultz, has claimed that the CIA was involved in the 1975 military coup and the assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, Bangladesh’s founding father.

Lawrence Lifschultz used to write for the Far Eastern Economic Review.

Dhaka’s Daily Star and Prothom Alo newspapers have quoted his findings.

Lifschultz, in his book 'Bangladesh: an unfinished revolution', alleged that 'through its operative, Philip Cherry, posted as first secretary in the US embassy, the CIA plotted the overthrow of the Mujib government'.

Sheikh Hasina, one of Mujib's two surviving daughters, who became Bangladesh’s prime minister in 1996, believes that her father 'fell victim to an international conspiracy'.

Henry Kissinger 'figures prominently in Lifschultz’s writings'.

According to Lifschultz, Eugene Booster, then US Ambassador to Bangladesh 'repeatedly objected to the conspiracy and even issued written instruction in this regard, but then CIA Station Chief, Philip Cherry would not listen to him'.

'Khandaker Moshtaque Ahmad, a minister in Mujib’s Cabinet, played the leading role. Coup leaders made him the country’s president, but a counter-coup overthrew him three months later.'

Bangladesh's current Prime Minister Khaleda Zia's husband, General Ziaur Rahman, Deputy Chief of Army Staff in 1975, 'played a crucial behind-the-scenes role in the plotting that preceded the coup and in the events which followed'.

Zia later became President and was killed in a mutiny.

Officers involved in murder of de Menezes not yet questioned


The Mail on Sunday, 21 August 2005, reports that the officers involved in the death of de Menezes have still not been questioned by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. A month has passed since the shooting.


De Menezes and CCTV pictures that may have been destroyed?


According to the Mail on Sunday, 21 August 2005, Tube staff claim that 'CCTV tapes showing exactly what happened when Jean Charles de Menezes was shot WERE handed over to police, but were returned days later completely blank.'

The police failed , in breach of their statutory duty, to invite the IPPC to commence its investigations from the first moment of the shootings on July 22nd.


De menezes and the pathologist


General Medical Council Press Release 5 August 2005:

The following doctors have received a Notice of Inquiry from the GMC. This confirms the start date, length and location of their Fitness to Practise hearing.

Mr K Shorrock 5 September 2005 9 September 2005 Manchester.


The pathologist who dealt with the death of de Menezes is Dr Kenneth Shorrock.

Why was Dr Shorrock at the post mortem conducted on July 27th, (at which senior investigating police officers were present) told the following:

“This man’s death occurred as part of the emergency relating to the planting of bombs on public transport in London. On the morning of the 22nd July 2005 he was pursued by armed police officers as a result of surveillance. He was followed into Stockwell Tube Station where he vaulted over the ticket barrier. He ran downstairs and onto a tube train where it appears that he stumbled. The officers then immobilised him and a number of shots were fired. At the present time I am not sure as to any further details.”


According to the Mail on Sunday, 21 August 2005, Dr Shorrock says he cannot remember who it was that gave him the false version of the events surrounding the death of de Menezes..

The Mail on Sunday, 21 August 2005, points out that Dr Shorrock is facing disciplinary action by the General medical Council over allegations concerning another post-mortem report.


Britain's Military is corrupt?

One group that has been linked to the shooting of Mr de Menezes is the SAS.


David Leppard, in the Sunday Times, 21 August 2005, writes that sources close to the military claim that the SAS (UK special forces) is facing an internal inquiry into allegations that
'hundreds of thousands of pounds have been misappropriated during some of its covert operations in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East'.

Sources said that military investigators queried certain invoices. There are suggestions that 'they may have been inflated and the extra cash channelled elsewhere'.

The SAS 'is thought to account for 10% of the Ministry of Defence’s £31 billion annual budget'.

The SAS 'has always had access to its own funds to ensure that it has the ability to obtain anything it needs and to bypass the often bureaucratic processes to which other regiments are subject'.


Max Hastings, in the Sunday Telegraph, 21 August2005, writes about the British army.

Hastings, who has close links to the military, begins by telling us: "The British Army may not be the biggest, but it is the best... Yet today this great institution faces a crisis of self-confidence."

There have been scandals at Deepcut barracks and in Iraq.

Hastings reminds us about Colonel "Mad Mitch" Mitchell who 'did shocking things to Arabs in Aden in 1967, while becoming a hero at home.'

Hastings writes:

"Almost 30 years ago, an SAS trooper described to me a long, weary 1943 battle which he and his squadron fought in Italy, confronting Germans across a ravine. Suddenly, he said, an iron-tough former booth boxer in the next foxhole sprang up and ran to a bridge 200 yards distant. The man had spotted some women sheltering under the stonework. My eye-witness said with a grin: 'Our bloke got to the bridge, had one of the women and was back in the trench, shot at both ways, inside ten minutes.'

"A straightforward case of rape," comments Hastings.

Hastings continues: "Henry V's soldiers at Agincourt may have enchanted Shakespeare, but their behaviour in France formed part of a century-long saga of pillage and massacre... In 1916, the Royal Flying Corps briefly employed a psychiatrist to screen trainees for psychopaths, obsessives and the like. The practice was abandoned when it was noticed that most aces fell into one category or another."



The British army has a long history of using torture.

The writer Mark Curtis says that in 1971 an official British investigation found that the British army's torture techniques "played an important part in counter-insurgency operations in Palestine, Malaya, Kenya, Cyprus and the British Cameroons (1960-1), Brunei (1963), British Guiana (1964), Aden (1964-7), Borneo/Malaysia (1965-6), the Persian Gulf (1970-1) and in Northern Ireland (1971)".


The British used beatings, sexual humiliation, hooding, sleep deprivation, and bombarding with white noise.

32 Whites were killed by the Mau Mau during the five-year state of emergency. More whites died in traffic accidents in the capital city, Nairobi.

Kenyans were forced into concentration camps and routinely tortured.

Some 150,000 Africans died as a direct result of the British policy.

There was a "constant stream of reports of brutalities by police, military and home guards", wrote Canon Bewes, a British missionary.

"Some of the people had been using castration instruments and two men had died under castration."

Other brutalities included slicing off ears, boring holes in eardrums, flogging people to death, pouring paraffin over suspects and setting them alight and burning eardrums with cigarettes.

A British district officer admitted, "There was outright abuse of power and some of the crimes committed were horrific. One day six Mau Mau suspects were brought into a police station in the neighbouring district to mine. The British police inspector in charge lined them up against a wall and shot them."

A mobile gallows travelled the country. Over 1,000 were hanged, their bodies displayed at crossroads and market places.


The British used terror in Malaya.

This involved aerial bombing, massacres of villagers, dictatorial police measures and the "resettlement" of hundreds of thousands of people.

CYPRUS During the state of emergency, from 1952 to 1957, the British army used torture.

Cypriot Nicos Koshies:

"They took me to the Special Branch and they started beating me. They took off all my clothes, they tied my hands and feet. They asked somebody to come in. He was taking a stick to put up my bottom, he was putting cloths in water and putting them on my face so I could not breathe, he threw me down and danced on my stomach when he was wearing boots. After 12 days I could not recognise myself."

James Callaghan in the House of Commons:

"On 29 June 1957 an inquest was held into the death of Nicos Georghiou. Dr Clearkin said in evidence that bruises in the head were sufficiently severe to have caused the injuries to the brain, perhaps bumping the head against a hard object."


In 1953 a coup organised by the British and the USA overthrew Mossadeq and gave power to the Shah.

British SAS forces trained the Shah's Savak secret police.

SAS officers helped train the Iranian army in special operations against the Kurds.

The Shah's regime used torture until it was overthrown in 1979.


In Aden, later known as South Yemen, SAS squads used terror against local villages.

An official investigation found that from 1964 to 1967 detainees at a British interrogation centre were routinely tortured. Their eardrums were burst.

Others were forced to lean against walls with their fingertips for day and subjected to white noise for hours.


Former detainees in Bahrain have described being beaten, electrocuted, whipped, tied in excruciating positions for days on end, kept awake, starved and having their toenails torn out.


The Compton official inquiry acknowledged that the army hooded suspects, fed them on just bread and water and blasted them with noise.

An Amnesty International report said, "It is because we regard the deliberate destruction of a man's ability to control his own mind with revulsion that we reserve a special place in our catalogue of moral crimes for techniques of thought control and brainwashing. Any interrogation procedure which has the purpose or effect of causing a malfunction or breakdown of a man's mental processes constitutes as grave an assault on the inherent dignity of the human person as more traditional techniques of physical torture."

A European human rights report found that British army techniques amounted to "inhuman and degrading treatment" causing "at least intense physical and mental suffering".


A plot by a secretive section of the military to kill De Menezes as part of a strategy of tension?

There has been speculation that all the recent terror incidents in Britain are part of a 'strategy of tension' similar to that which brought terror to Greece, Italy and Turkey in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
If elements of the security services could catch and kill someone on the London Underground and then claim that this was a Moslem terrorist, this would advance the fascist agenda.
It would support the idea that 9 11, the Bali Bombs, the Madrid Bombs and the London Bombs were the work of Moslem terrorists, rather than the work of the security services, using double agents and patsies.
When agents of the UK government shot dead the innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, the police claimed that they had shot a dangerous terrorist.

It looks as if there were (at least) two groups who were involved in the pursuit of Jean Charles de Menezes:

1. The police
2. A shadowy military group

Senior sources in the Metropolitan Police told The Observer (21 August 2005) that

1. their surveillance officers felt that de Menezes was not about to detonate a bomb,
2. was not armed
3. and was not acting suspiciously.


A police source said: 'There is no way those three guys would have been on the train carriage with him [de Menezes] if they believed he was carrying a bomb. Nothing he did gave the surveillance team the impression that he was carrying a device.'

It was only when they were joined by 'armed officers' that things changed.

The Sunday Herald, which often has the best sources on security matters, tells us about the Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR).

http://www.sundayherald.com/51372 / AN INNOCENT MAN SHOT DEAD ON THE LONDON TUBE BY POLICE . . .SINCE ...

The Sunday Herald, 21 August 2005, tells us about the monitoring of the flat in Scotia Road, Tulse Hill, in south London.

The address was said to be linked to alleged bomber Hussein Osman.( Hussain Osman - arrested in Rome )

Among the surveillance team in Scotia Road was a soldier from a new “special forces” regiment -the Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR).

James Cusick, in the Sunday Herald, wrote:

"According to security sources, SRR personnel were involved in the tailing operation that saw de Menezes leave the block of flats, board a bus, and then enter the tube station at Stockwell. SRR personnel are also believed to have been on the tube train when he was shot.

"The SRR soldier at Scotia Road (given the codename Tango 10) used equipment which sent realtime pictures of all who came and went from the flats. Those receiving the pictures could check them against footage of who they were looking for. One security source said: 'In this kind of operation you never leave. You need to pee: you use a bottle; if there’s no bottle, tough. You never leave.'

"The police account says there is no footage of de Menezes leaving because the SRR soldier had to relieve himself. The police account says he sent out a message calling the man who left [de Menezes] an 'ICI' – a white northern European...

"Hussein Osman – arrested in Rome and scheduled for deportation to the UK within the next two months – was not an ICI. The CCTV footage of Osman the police held showed an Asian/north African male.

"De Menezes took a bus to Stockwell tube station, stopping briefly at Brixton...

"It is also understood that the senior police officer in charge of the operation, Commander Cressida Dick, had ordered de Menezes at this stage to be detained before he went into the tube station and that he should be alive...

"So why was de Menezes not stopped before the station?"

Apparently, both members of the police and the mysterious second group were on the train with de Menezes. It would appear that members of the mysterious second group murdered de Menezes.

"A security agency source contacted by the Sunday Herald said: 'This take-out is the signature of a special forces operation. It is not the way the police usually do things.... this has special forces written all over it.'

The Sunday Herald points out:

"The initial post-mortem report into de Menezes’s death states the young Brazilian had 'vaulted over the ticket barrier'.

"A post-mortem report does not take its information from media reports. The police are contacted directly and written accounts are delivered. Details of the barrier being “vaulted” therefore came from the police. Why?

"And why at 4pm – five hours after the shooting – when the police would have known they had not killed Hussein Osman but a young Brazilian, did Sir Ian hold a press conference and insist that the shooting was 'directly linked' to the anti-terrorist operation?"


What about the de menezes flat? Did Osman really live there?


From the Observer, 21 August 2005:

"Questions have been raised about the accuracy of the police intelligence that led to the raid on the block of flats occupied by de Menezes. It was initially suggested that the flat was connected to the man known as Hussein Osman, who was arrested in Italy.

"On the Saturday after the shooting, officers raided the flat in a high-profile operation watched by the world's media. As a result, a man, identified only as 'C', was arrested 'on suspicion of the commission, instigation or preparation of acts of terrorism'. But he was released on 30 July with no charge, raising the possibility that the flats had no connection with the bombings."


Was there a plot to fool the public?



A passenger on the train, Anthony Larkin, told BBC News the man appeared to be wearing a "bomb belt with wires coming out".The 'man' was Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes, who was shot by government agents.


Commuter Anthony Larkin, who was also on the train at Stockwell station, told 5 Live he saw police chasing a man.

"I saw these police officers in uniform and out of uniform shouting 'get down, get down', and I saw this guy who appeared to have a bomb belt and wires coming out and people were panicking and I heard two shots being fired."


Is the Anthony Larkin named above the same as the one named below?

Did elements of the security services hope to fool the public into thinking that the person who was shot was one of the 'bombers' such as Hussain Osman - arrested in Rome .

Hussein Osman, who also uses the name Hamdi Isaac, moved to Rome by Eurostar five days after the 21 July attacks in London. His passport was not checked by the British at Waterloo.


Operation Gladio and the 'strategy of tension' in Italy beginning in 1969.

Operation Gladio was organised by 'fascists' within the security services of the West.

Reportedly, the idea was to kill innocent people and then blame this on others.

Gladio was about keeping the right-wing elite in power.

Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony:

'You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security.'

Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti revealed the existence of Gladio in 1991.

Parliamentary investigations in Italy, Switzerland and Belgium have given us a little of the truth.
The book "NATO's Secret Armies: Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe," by Daniele Ganser documents some of what we know so far.

Run by fascist elements in NATO and Washington, right-wing militias carried out acts of terrorism and electoral subversion in states such as Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Turkey and West Germany.

Gladio was the name used in Italy. In Austria the name was Schwert, Belgium -Sdra 8, Britain - Stay Behind, France - Glaive, Greece -Operation Sheepskin, Holland, Sweden -Sveaborg, Switzerland -P26 and Turkey -Special War Department. [Source: "Operation Gladio." users.westnet.gr/~cgian/gladio.htm]

A Pentagon document, Field Manual FM 30-31B, details the methods for launching terrorist attacks.85 people were killed on August 2, 1980 in the bombing of the Bologna train station.

According to the Italian Senate, after its investigation in 2000, the bombers were later discovered to be "men inside Italian state institutions and ... men linked to the structures of United States intelligence."

The Bologna bomb was part of Gladio's " strategy of tension" - fomenting fear to keep populations in thrall to "strong leaders" who will protect the nation from the ever-present terrorist threat.

The beginning of the 'strategy of tension' in Italy came in Dec. 12, 1969 when a bomb exploded inside the Banca Nazionale dell' Agricoltura in Milan's Piazza Fontana. 16 people were killed and 58 wounded.

New World Order


Who are the people behind the terror?

"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful.

"This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown.

"When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." - Reportedly said by Henry Kissinger, at a Bilderberg meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992. His speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.

Kissinger is reportedly linked to 9 11. He was national security adviser and secretary of state in the Nixon administration when the CIA overthrew the elected government of Chile, on September 11, 1973.

Some people believe that the terror incidents of recent years are the work of the same sort of people who supported totalitarian government back in the 1930s.

What happened to the communists, those fans of Trotsky and Stalin?

John Reid is a former member of the Communist Party. He is now the UK's Secretary of State for Defence. Peter Mandelson, a European Union commissioner, and one of the architects of New Labour, was a member of the Young Communist League.

What happened to the fascists?

In Britain in the 1930s there were large numbers of fascists in countries such as Germany, France, Britain, America, Italy and Spain. In Britain, there were fascists within such institutions as parliament, the aristocracy and MI6.


Before World War II "Hitler and the Nazis were funded in large part by American industrialists who were comfortable investing in a country where the workforce was extremely controlled and the union movement was outlawed...

"Corporations such as Rockefeller's Standard Oil, Alfred P. Sloan's General Motors, Henry Ford II's Ford Motor Company, and others financed Hitler's industrial war machine, and indeed directly profited from the slave labor of the war years, as recent law suits have proven...

"Press barons ... openly supported the Fascist movement in their numerous journals. ...Multi-millionare Hearst believed Hitler could be ‘a great world leader’.

When Hitler was defeated, "many leading Nazis escaped ... to the Americas. Far from disappearing, the Nazi movement and its racist ideology became a force both at grass roots and elite levels..."

The fascists, and other supporters of totalitarian government, are still around.

What about the recent terror? It looks as if agents connected to certain elites are recruiting 'Moslems' to carry out acts of terror.

The people behind the terror are the people who believe in some form of dictatorship.

They believe that life is a brutal struggle. They believe that the end justifies the means.

Sometimes they are called the New World Order.

They may be a loose alliance of Fascists, Stalinists, right wing Israelis, right wing 'Moslems', certain freemasons, right wing Mafias and a host of others.

They may live in Saudi Arabia, the United States, Pakistan, Britain, Russia, Italy or any other country.

They occupy key positions in the military, in the media, in big business and in government.

Is life a 'brutal struggle'? 'Mutual Aid', published in 1902 by the Russian Petr Kropotkin, argues, that the struggle for existence usually leads to mutual aid rather than warfare. Animals that cooperate are more likely to survive.

However, the supporters of the New World Order seem to believe in brutal struggle.

What sort of policies are supported by the New World Order?

Italy provides an example.

"Many members of Operation Gladio were also in a shadowy organization known as P-2; it too was financed by the CIA.

"P-2 had connections with the Vatican and the Mafia, and eventually with an international fascist umbrella organization called the World Anti-Communist League.

"One of P-2's specialties was the art of provocation. Leftist organizations like the Red Brigades were infiltrated, financed and / or created, and the resulting acts of terrorism, like the assassination of Italy's premier in 1978 and the bombing of the railway station in Bologna in 1980, were blamed on the left.

"The goal of this "strategy of tension" was to convince Italian voters that the left was violent and dangerous-by helping make it so."

Paul Joseph Watson: 'The ultimate form of control is fear and the fear that you could lose your life at any moment elicits a Pavlovian response towards those who claim they can protect you. Trauma based mind control is not a conspiracy theory and can be observed naturally after people have been subject.' http://www.propagandamatrix.com/endless_fake_terror_alerts.html

Aldous Huxley, in Brave New World, 1932, referred to a 'scientific dictatorship', the sort of totalitarian regime that might be found in Russia or America.

Huxley refers to pavlovian-style behavioural conditioning and eugenics.

Thomas Malthus would have supported the New World Order. He wrote:

“Instead of recommending cleanliness to the poor, we should encourage contrary habits. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague. In the country, we should build our villages near stagnant pools, and particularly encourage settlement in all marshy and unwholesome situations. But above all, we should reprobate specific remedies for ravaging diseases...”

“We are bound in justice and honour formally to disclaim the right of the poor to support. To this end, I should propose a regulation be made declaring that no child born' should ever be entitled to parish assistance' ... All children beyond what would be required to keep up the population to this [desired] level, must necessarily perish, unless room be made for them by the deaths of grown persons.”

The supporters of the New World Order form secret organisations.

Phillip D. Collins, has written about hidden groups behind the French Revolution. http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/Ascendancy2.htm

Collins points out that in 'Essays on the French Revolution', Lord Acton wrote:
“The appalling thing in the French Revolution is not the tumult but the design. Through all the fire and smoke we perceive the evidence of calculating organization. The managers remain studiously concealed and masked; but there is no doubt about their presence from the first.”

In Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike suggested that it was Freemasonry that 'aided in bringing about the French Revolution'. http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/Ascendancy2.htm

Who were the Jacobins? William Hoar reveals that they were 'agents of the Bavarian-bred Illuminati who operated out of the Club Breton'' http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/NWO/Ascendancy2.htm

Robespierre tried to carry out a massive depopulation campaign.

Ian Taylor, in his book 'In the Minds of Men: Darwin and the New World Order':
“Fascism or Marxism, right wing or left - all these are only ideological roads that lead to Aldous Huxley's brave new world ... both Fascism and Marxism finish at the same destiny - totalitarian rule by the elite.”


There are many institutions which may or may not be connected to the 'New World Order'.

Le Cercle may be a perfectly innocent organisation. Some people have their suspicions about 'The Circle'.


"Le Cercle is a secret transnational intelligence and direct action group, that, according to all accounts, is funded by the CIA."

Members include Moslems, Jews and Christians.

"Circle members Allen Dulles, Frank Wisner, William Colby, Stefano Delle Chiaie, Giulio Andreotti, General Stilwell, and probably Karel Meulmeester have all been involved in the creation or maintenance of the Stay-Behind networks." (The Stay-Behind networks involved Operation Gladio)."

Reportedly members of The Circle include or have included:

Giulio Andreotti (alleged by some to be the head of P2)

Prince Turki Al-Faisal

Lord Julian Amery (reportedly Jewish)

Nadhmi Auchi (reportedly a former member of Saddam's inner circle)

Zbigniew Brzezinski

Jacques Chirac

William Colby

Allen Dulles

Reinhard Gehlen

Sir James Goldsmith

Michael Howard

Henry Kissinger

Norman Lamont (Longtime director of N.M. Rothschild )

David Rockefeller

George Soros

Alan Duncan

Richard Nixon

Paul Volcker


What about Bilderberg? According to the Economist,26 Dec 1987:

"Elite and discreet, Bilderberg has inevitably been talked of in hushed tones by conspiracy theorists over the years. It needn't be. The lists of attenders are published, as are the agendas..."


Bill Clinton attended a Bilderberg meeting in 1991 and got the presidential nomination in 1992.

Tony Blair reportedly attended a Bilderberg meeting in 1993 and became party leader in 1994.

Jack Santer - Bilderberg1991 - European President 1995

Romano Prodi - Bilderberg 1999 - President of European Commission 1999

George Robertson - Bilderberg 1998 - Secretary General of NATO 1999

Lionel Jospin -Bilderberg 1996 -Prime Minister of France 1997

Bilderberg was set up by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands who 'once wore the black uniform of Hitler’s SS' according to Alden Hatch, author of 'H. R. H. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands; an authorized biography'.
