SORRY FOR POSTING SUCH A HUGE REPORT, BUT I FELT THAT IT CONTAINED SO MUCH INFORMATION THAT HAD TO BE PRESERVED (I FOUND IT ON A CACHED PAGE FROM ANOTHER REFERENCE). ENJOY.
|Hayden and the NSA- the most ignored “9/11 connection”?
A ‘rant’ based on research, compiled between 2001 and 2006,
Gen. Michael V. Hayden, currently Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence
But more important, he was also former head of the NSA (March 1999 – April 2005).
The role of the NSA regarding 9/11, and ironically also the 9/11 truth ‘community’,
Apparently because some particular ‘9/11 authors’
It was always clear, why.
The NSA, but also the NASA had their eyes not only on the 9/11 “plotline”
The National Security Agency (NSA) has traditionally influenced
That includes also the Internet and the internet “daisy committees” of the NSA.
These are unidentified online trolls, which nicknames share different I.P. addresses,
However this “user”, represented with a nickname
The NSA can also basically login and monitor all important databases of the U.S.,
Among them the National Flight Database (NFD).
Current data elements included are:
Would the NSA ‘log in’ on the morning on Sep11th?
Sure they would.
That’s why they also know, that the BTS database of the FAA already proves,
The NSA knew all alleged passengers on the morning of Sep11th.
They also know in real time, what really happened in NYC, Shanksville and
In other words, the NSA are important part of the perpetrators who ‘did 9/11’.
“The CIA did 9/11” is instead distraction language of many “9/11 truthlings”,
This meme often also includes other inane ‘NWO’-drivel like endless distractions
The ‘CIA-talk’ often distracts on alleged on-topic ‘discussion forums’ with other off-topics,
Often “CIA researchers” find themselves quickly among associates of “TWA800 researchers”
The strategy is obvious.
“The Mossad did it”-meme has a similar strategy, though it clearly distracts
Right after 9/11, self appointed “Mossad researchers”, often end up
The ‘CIA distraction’ also helps to stir a fight between
But what has ‘complicity’ to do with the actual performance of the inside operation?
Basically the same complicity of the so called ‘9/11 cover-up’
The result is an endless debate on whether the one or other agency had more or
What almost noone realizes, all these ‘complicities’ refer in the majority to the plotline,
Therefore it doesn’t matter if either CIA, BND, MOSSAD, Dutch Intelligence or “Able Danger” “observed” or “impostered” the alleged hijackers.
It all represents just the ‘plotline’ and distracts from
The “CIA connection” was also designed to distract from the private military-
Another “distraction”, not less effective, is the “Bush did it” meme,
The same “bush did it” meme also automatically triggers other inane ‘activist drivel’ on prior knowledge red herrings like Jeb or Marvin Bush.
That’s why also so called leftgatekeepers are still clueless about the real players
Among them In-Q-Tel, Titan Corp., BoozAllen Hamilton, CSC/DynCorp, SAIC and many others.
The NSA has their own satellite surveillance trackers, developed by SAIC
On the morning of Sep11th, the NSA did not follow any particular standard government-
There also was no “Rumsfeld around”.
Truthlings and Gatekeepers apparently watched too many soap operas.
That’s why more important players of the 9/11 perps never arrived
Douglas Feith, Stephen Cambone, Jay C Davis (ANSER), James Woolsey, Ruth David,
That’s why also the role of the NSA is underrepresented in this ‘truth movement’,
That’s why cointel-pro still succesfully runs or
Anyone knows, that the Heritage Foundation runs meetup.com,
Obviously the majority doesn’t.
“Profile producers” are less important than “profile paranoia”.
When ‘Civil Right activists’ try to distract with “controversial surveillance facts” on the NSA,
The same or similar pattern can be also seen in the ‘alternative media’.
It not only helps as a gatekeeper distraction from 9/11,
However the role of the NSA for both 9/11 ‘plotline’ and ‘military operation’,
It wasn’t the CIA, but apparently the NSA with their most advanced high tech,
However the official ‘plotline’ of 9/11 had nothing to do with the military operation.
While the 9/11 perpetrators used the CIA as helpful distraction idiots,
“Tomorrow is Zero hour” (September 10th, 2001)
The alleged suspects of 9/11 met next to Fort Meade.
Also, it was ex-NSA agent Linda Mills (BENS), who lived in the same city as
And BENS helped creating the Tail to Tooth Commission,
BENS is located in front of the White House (1717 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20570).
Chairman Stanley A. Weiss is a member of the
Members of BENS are also:
Norman R. Augustine (Director Lockheed Martin),
Significantly, all these companies have extreme close ties
The “military operation” of 9/11 therefore also included a P.R. and media operation and
This ‘footage’ was then exclusively wired to W-ABC (ABC7) which synched their
Also, it was the hangar of the NASA (NASA Glenn Research) in Cleveland,
Strangely “Delta 1989” was only forced to land in Cleveland,
Oddly also the other flight was early identified as “United93”,
The CIA (same to FBI) was also used as a distraction for the ‘limited hangout’ to divert
The National Imagery and Mapping Agency was also known as “the ‘eyes of America’
On August 8th, 2001 (two days after Bush received a new PDB with a clear warning on Bin Laden),
The countdown for 9/11 continued.
These 3 intelligence agencies had been already in charge
During 1998/1999, under Bill Clinton, the NSA and NRO handed out their first contracts of “Trailblazer”
In the same years, controversy breaks out over the NSA “Echelon” project.
However in 1999 both General Hayden (NSA) and George Tenet (CIA) neither denied or confirmed
If they would have confirmed the existance of Echelon and its sub projects,
The denial was therefore most important, because 9/11 was already in planning.
In March 2001, Logicon TASC officially announced their five-year,
‘Logicon’ was in reality a team of others:
“Logicon Task Team”, part of Northrop Grumman, included Veridian (in 2003 aquired by General Dynamics),
Another subcontractor of Logicon TASK (diff. sp.)
Veridian includes Neil Armstrong (former space missions during 60s).
This brings us also directly to a popular example
Neil Armstrong’s sister is married with Jack Hoffman,
After Jim Hoffman plagiarized his ‘wtc7’ research from the ‘9/11 science and justice alliance’,
Back to ‘Trailblazer’:
The ‘pentagon attack’ not only ‘wiped out’ the Office of Naval Intelligence,
Woolsey (ex-CIA director and PNAC)’s company was working on “Trailblazer”.
Also killed: two employees from BTG Inc., another sub contractor of Trailblazer.
Only 10 days after Sep11th, BTG Inc. was suddenly purchased by Woolsey’s other former company,
Needless to say, Titan was another main contracter of Trailblazer
What “role” did the NRO really play?
The NRO is main suspect among some ‘9/11 truthseekers’ for the Pentagon attack,
A terrorist drill which was “cancelled”, but in reality took place but didn’t include a real plane either.
When the importance of the pre 9/11-terror drill research in general became more popular
The so called “wargames-focus” and the alleged “Cheney mastermind” role was therefore created
Once again, the 9/11 truth movement was fooled and still is, because most of the ‘wargame activists’
Not if you know, who and why these distractions had been scripted into this movement.
It helped to delay and later control the activists of the “controlled demolition”.
And it helped to distract from NSA, NGA and NRO.
The researcher who found out about all this, was labelled
Why is the NRO much more important than the CIA?
The NRO was established in 1960 to develop the nation’s revolutionary satellite reconnaissance systems.
The existence of the NRO was declassified by the Deputy Secretary of Defense,
The Director of the NRO is appointed by the Secretary of Defense
(In July 2005 Donald M. Kerr was approved as new Director of the NRO)
In late 2001, “Trailblazer” (just another sub project and codename of Echelon and others)
Finally during December 2004, the so called ‘classified’ project, popped up in U.S. mainstream media.
Now described as “controversial spy satellite program” or “stealth satellite program”,
Finally General Michael Hyden (NSA) somehow confirmed, that this ‘spy satellite program’
Hyden also confirmed, that Lockheed was then picked as one of the main contractors
On December 8, 2004, Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia,
Rockefeller and three other Democratic senators –
It took only 3 weeks to kill the debate and approve the project.
It was the result of an officially labelled ‘natural disaster’:
The Sumatra-Andaman earthquake, followed by a series of tsunamis throughout the Indian Ocean,
Meanwhile, noone in U.S. Congress,
While so called ‘weather modification theorists’ are getting accused as ‘paranoid’
Meanwhile also Hayden has the guts to claim, “had this program been in effect prior to 9/11, it is my professional judgment that we would have detected some of the 9/11 al-Qaida operatives in the United States, and we would have identified them as such..”
But eco-, human right- and civil right activists are not getting the bigger picture,
And if it comes to NSA, only superficial topics are allowed to debate or instrumentalize,
And if it comes to e-voting machines, wannabee activists ignore military and intelligence
But does that mean, all other, less organised media activists are having the better strategy?
The irony is, that also the majority of so called independent ‘activists’ and ‘researchers’
While many ‘truthlings’ praying ‘google’ as the holy grail for their ‘breakthrough’ for 9/11-research and
The facts are:
The CIA doesn’t care about all this?
It should therefore noone surprise, why noone wants to buy google.
If it belongs to the NSA, it will be impossible :)
The 9/11 truth movement community and many other false oppositions are played by the NSA.
Should THAT discourage us?
No, it shouldn’t. Because we altogether still have the same chance on this very same cyber chess board.
It depends on which figure you’re playing at which time.
The real tools are the 9/11 truthlings. They’re also not the real “googlers”.
As long as the truthlings run the show,
Instead they focus on the 9/11 truthling sheeple:
The NSA know every step of them and
Whether it was ex-CIA firm In-Q-tel ‘negotiator’
It still works:
A real “truthling” never questioned their ‘leaders’.
And that’s why General Hayden will most obviously BECOME head of the CIA,
And maybe also the one or other 9/11 truthling might point out,
Meanwhile, the reorganisation of the U.S. Intelligence Apparatus is almost done.
“…The first was the stacking of too many responsibilities
The second was the Defense Department’s ownership
Welcome back to the Matrix.
The deceptions and ‘distractions’
Don’t worry about it.

|“The CIA did 9/11” is instead distraction language of many “9/11 truthlings”, based on a dried out old school meme of the 80s.
This is often due to lack of knowledge of the intelligence community. A lot of people for example state that the CIA worked in tandem with the Pakistani ISI during the 1980’s to build training camps and recruit Muslim fighters in the battle against the Soviets, while in truth the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) had a far more important role compared to the CIA.
I guess it’s not meant to distract on purpose, but is mainly due to ignorance on the subject ?

Gossgate: In-Q-tel, Randy Cunningham, Hookers, Limos and other reasons of Porter Goss ‘resignation’
It ain’t easy pinning down Ionatron Inc., the Tucson, Arizona laser weapon firm…
…there’s one media outlet where Ionatron’s name has been mentioned a whole lot, lately. That would be the New York Post, where business columnist Christopher Byron has been on a one-man jihad against the ray gun company. His most recent strike came last week, as he accused Senate Appropriations Committee chief Thad Cochran of steering millions in congressional discretionary funds Ionatron’s way – in return for $9,000 in campaign contributions, and a promise to relocate to Cochran’s home state of Mississippi…
On May 9, he claimed that “accumulating evidence now suggests that at least some of the technology that Ionatron claims to possess may actually belong either to Waltham, Mass.-based Raytheon Co., which has been conducting its own government-funded ‘directed energy’ weapons research for years, or to a small California tech company rival called HSV Technologies, Inc., or perhaps to both.”

In March 2005, George Bush picked former In-Q-Tel’s former President and Chief Operating Officer Michael D. Griffith as new head for NASA.
At the request of the CIA, Norman Augustine, former CEO of Lockheed-Martin, founded In-Q-Tel (originally named Peleus, Inc. and then In-Q-It) as a private sector corporation in February 1999.
It followed a May 1998 “Strategic Direction” initiative from George Tenet, supported by

Goss Goes Out—But the CIA’s Struggles Go On
“…Emblematic of the CIA’s woes is its number-three man, Executive Director Kyle (Dusty) Foggo…
..Federal investigators are looking at the ties of the CIA’s “Ex Dir” to a congressional bribery scandal. Foggo was a high-school football teammate and college buddy of Brent Wilkes’s, a defense contractor who was identified as an unindicted co-conspirator when former San Diego congressman and ex-Navy air ace Randy (Duke) Cunningham pleaded guilty.
The CIA has acknowledged that its internal watchdog is investigating if Foggo helped steer any contracts to Wilkes. According to three sources who declined to be identified commenting on the details of a government probe, there are also indications that the Feds are interested in Foggo’s role in the wider Cunningham bribery scandal…

Limo firm denies providing prostitutes
WASHINGTON, May 6 (UPI) — The president of a Washington limousine company, denied he provided prostitutes to former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, R-Calif.
Federal investigators have been examining the relationship between Shirlington Limousine and Brent R. Wilkes, a San Diego businessman under investigation for bribing Cunningham to get federal contracts.
Mitchell Wade, a defense contractor who has admitted to bribing Cunningham, told prosecutors that Wilkes used the limousine company to help procure paid escorts for Cunningham, The Washington Post reported.
Officials said the limousine company’s president, Christopher Baker, has a criminal record including two felony convictions, but that would not have affected the company’s bid. When the Homeland Security Administration contracts with a company, officials said, it does not check the criminal backgrounds of executives or run executives’ names against the government’s terrorist watch list…”

||CIA chief quits after ‘Hookergate’
The Sunday Times May 07, 2006
ALL the ingredients for a spy thriller involving prostitutes, poker, a congressman called Randy and parties at the legendary Watergate complex may lie behind the sudden resignation of Porter Goss as director of the CIA last Friday.
The saga has already been named “Hookergate” and the CIA is buzzing with rumours that there is more to Goss’s departure than meets the eye.
The timing is certainly curious, coming hard on the heels of the CIA’s confirmation last week that Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, the number three in the nation’s spy centre who was hand-picked by Goss, had attended poker games at the Watergate and Westin Grand hotels in Washington with Brent Wilkes, a defence contractor and close boyhood friend.
Wilkes is under investigation for allegedly providing Randy “Duke” Cunningham, a disgraced Republican congressman, with prostitutes, limousines and free hotel suites.
The net is also closing in on Foggo, who is being investigated by the FBI over the award to Wilkes of a $3m contract to supply bottled water and other goods to CIA operatives in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although Foggo has admitted playing poker with Wilkes, he insists that no prostitutes were present.
A former senior CIA official said this weekend that he had been told by a trusted source inside the agency that Goss, 67, had attended one of the poker games. The CIA has denied it. “Goss has repeatedly denied being there, so if it were to come out that he was, he is finished,” the former official said.
..Behind Bush’s public explanation for Goss’s departure lies a second authorised version, according to which Goss lost a turf battle for power and prestige with John Negroponte, the politically adept new director of national intelligence, a post created to oversee all intelligence gathering after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001…
…Goss is expected to be replaced tomorrow by General Michael Hayden, head of the National Security Agency (NSA), who is close to Dick Cheney, the vice-president…
Brent R. Wilkes
Brent R. Wilkes is a Bush Pioneer who raised (http://www.tpj.org/docs/pioneers/pioneers_view.jsp?id=1005) at least $100,000 for the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2004. According to Federal Election Commission filings, Wilkes and his wife have donated $139,806 to politicians since 2001, not including the $100,000 Wilkes raised as an elite fundraising Pioneer for Bush in 2004.  (http://tinyurl.com/gl7vv WashPost)
Wilkes is the founder of defense contractor ADCS, Inc., “a San Diego IT services company.”
ADCS a.k.a. the Wilkes Corporation, a.k.a. Group W Advisors
Lawmaker contacted contractor early on
ADCS, or Automated Document Conversion Services, specializes in scanning documents so they can be indexed and cross-referenced easily. Its biggest project has been archiving 1.2 million architectural documents from the Panama Canal in 1999…
“…Since 1994, Wilkes and ADCS gave $40,700 in campaign contributions to Rep. Duncan Hunter, a San Diego Republican who now chairs the House Armed Services Committee. Hunter has acknowledged that he joined with Cunningham in 1999 to contact Pentagon officials who reversed a decision and gave ADCS one of its first big contracts, for nearly $10 million.” (USA Today, 11/29/05)

||Why Goss is Gone
How John Negroponte won control of the CIA, and what he plans next to consolidate rival agencies and his power
Sunday, May. 07, 2006
…If, as expected, Hayden takes over the CIA, the agency will more than ever become an extension of Negroponte’s growing empire. A friendly and intense four-star, Hayden would be the first active-duty military man at the CIA’s helm since Admiral Stansfield Turner ran the place for President Jimmy Carter…
…Until early last year, Hayden ran the supersecret National Security Agency at Fort Meade, Md., which covertly eavesdrops on conversations worldwide. It was under Hayden that the Bush Administration launched a secret, warrantless wiretapping program that began capturing conversations of private citizens at home…
…is considered a controversial figure by some because of his involvement in the covert funding of the Contras and the coverup of human rights abuses carried out by CIA-trained operatives in Honduras in the 1980s…
…From 1981 to 1985 Negroponte was the U.S. ambassador to Honduras. During this time military aid to Honduras grew from $4 million to $77.4 million a year, and the US began to maintain a significant military presence there, with the goal of providing a bulwark against the communist Sandinista government of Nicaragua…
…In early 1984, two American mercenaries, Thomas Posey and Dana Parker, contacted Negroponte, stating they wanted to supply arms to the Contras after the U.S. Congress had banned further military aid. Documents show that Negroponte brought the two together with a contact in the Honduran armed forces. The operation was exposed nine months later, at which point the Reagan administration denied any U.S. involvement, despite Negroponte’s introductions of some of the individuals. Other documents detailed a plan of Negroponte and then-Vice President George H. W. Bush to funnel Contra aid money through the Honduran government…
…A controversy exists around the status of 35,000 boxes of documents and tapes seized in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. According to the editors of the Weekly Standard, Negroponte continued the policy of delaying the translation and release of these documents and tapes…

BENS and the Tail To Tooth Commission
What many 9/11 ‘limited hangout’ plotline researcher still do not realise or ignore, that not every ‘prior knowledge’ of 9/11 can be turned into a ‘red herring’.
Three very significant ‘events’ are getting ignored since 4.8 years:
1) The Homeland Security was already established between 1999 and early 2001, with the help of BENS and ANSER Institute, which also already drilled the 9/11 anthrax attack during June 2001 (Dark Winter)
2) The Pentagon ‘Policy’ was also logistically restructured
Starting with Donald Rumsfeld and Pete Aldridge, each of them enthusiastically endorsed our blueprints for action. Secretary Rumsfeld indicated so as recently as last September 10th.” The Tail-Tooth Call to Action was a blueprint “to redirect unnecessary and wasteful overhead resources”, which had been already used before Sep11th.
Assistant President of the Tail-to-Tooth Commission Commission is Paul E. Taibl, a retired Air Force officer and former command pilot, airlift planner and senior fellow in the Institute for National Strategic Studies at the National Defense University.
Vice President of the TTT commission, which tried to “change Pentagon business practices” before Sep11th is Kenneth D. Beeks, another retired Navy test pilot who joined the BENS staff in June 2000…
3) Also the CIA restructured their ‘policy’ by outsourcing a venture capital company, as in In-Q-tel, again with the help of BENS
There have been similar ‘prior knowlegde’ pattern also regarding the NSA, NASA and NRO (“Project Trailblazer”, a Satellite Surveillance Project) and the PATRIOT ACT (which was based on the Oklahoma terror act).
And what about BENS’ “Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Initiative”, “an interactive panel presentation on a biological attack scenario?
Donald H. Rumsfeld, The Pentagon , Monday, September 10, 2001
“….Every dollar squandered on waste is one denied to the warfighter. That’s why we’re here today challenging us all to wage an all-out campaign to shift Pentagon’s resources from bureaucracy to the battlefield, from tail to the tooth.
We know the adversary. We know the threat. And with the same firmness of purpose that any effort against a determined adversary demands, we must get at it and stay at it…
…Some might ask, how in the world could the Secretary of Defense attack the Pentagon in front of its people? To them I reply, I have no desire to attack the Pentagon; I want to liberate it.
(ed: Only a few hours later the Pentagon was “attacked”, literally. The political restructure, already announced by Rumsfeld, 1 day before 9/11, continued…)
“…In the summer of 2001, U.S. government officials faced a desperate situation. Tests conducted by the Centers for Disease Control had confirmed that a group of patients, suffering from fever and an increasingly angry rash, was infected with smallpox….
The scenario above formed the basis of an exercise known as “Dark Winter” that brought together top government officials to war-game their reactions to a smallpox attack on American soil…
Dark Winter- participants
On 22-23 June (*2001), the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Studies, the ANSER Institute for Homeland Security, and the Oklahoma City National Memorial Institute for the Prevention Terrorism,hosted a senior-level war game examining the national security, intergovernmental, and information challenges of a biological attack on the American homeland…

||Report: Scandal may have played role in Goss resignation
May 8, 2006
Media sources say a corruption investigation may have forced White House to act quickly on Goss, and may also touch other defense and intelligence officials.
The New York Daily News reported Sunday that a “little known White House advisory board” pushed President Bush to dump Mr. Goss as CIA head. The president’s Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board was reportedly alarmed by the investigation of a spreading corruption scandal that had already looked into the actions of the CIA’s number three official and its executive director, Kyle Dustin (Dusty) Foggo, and may have indirectly touched on Goss himself.
The investigations have focused on the Watergate poker parties thrown by defense contractor Brent Wilkes, a high-school buddy of Foggo’s, that were attended by disgraced former Rep. Randy (Duke) Cunningham and other lawmakers. Foggo has claimed he went to the parties “just for poker” amid allegations that Wilkes, a top GOP fund-raiser and a member of the $100,000 “Pioneers” of Bush’s 2004 reelection campaign, provided prostitutes, limos and hotel suites to Cunningham.
Cunningham is serving an eight-year sentence after pleading to taking $2.4 million in bribes to steer defense contracts to cronies. Wilkes hosted regular parties for 15 years at the Watergate and Westin Grand Hotels for lawmakers and lobbyists. Intelligence sources said Goss has denied attending the parties as CIA director, but that left open whether he may have attended as a Republican congressman from Florida who was head of the House Intelligence Committee.
Harpers.org, the website of Harper’s Magazine, reported in late April that the FBI was investigating “current and former lawmakers on Defense and Intelligence comittees” as part of the scandal investigation. The Wall Street Journal also reported that in recent weeks the FBI has interviewed women from escort services in the Washington area, as well as obtained information from the Watergate Hotel, where many of the poker parties were allegedly held. While no other member of Congress has been implicated so far, if the FBI finds evidence of favors being given to lawmakers, it could lead to charges.
The New York Times reported Sunday that the investigation into Randy Cunningham’s actions “has produced a second round of inquiries into the actions of officials at the CIA and the Homeland Security Department and of members of the House Intelligence Committee,” according to government officials.
Writing for the progressive online news site truthout.org, Larry C. Johnson (who worked previously with the CIA and the US State Department’s Office of Counterterrorism as a deputy director), says sources have told him that Goss did not directly take part in the any of the parties that Foggo attended, but that other members of his staff may have.
A former CIA buddy tells me that Porter’s main problem, however, is a key staffer who is linked to both Brent Wilkes and the CIA’s Executive Director, Dusty Foggo. My friend also said that it is highly likely that the Goss staffer did participate in the [parties]. Goss, politician that he is, probably recognized that even though he did not participate …, his staffer’s participation created a huge problem for him that would be difficult to escape.
There also is truth to the rumor that Goss was not happy with presiding over a CIA that had been rendered a co-equal with the Department of Defense intelligence units. Prior to the creation of the National Director of Intelligence (NDI), the CIA was the lead intelligence agency. No longer. Ironically, part of the impetus for the creation of the NDI was the perceived “failures” of the CIA with respect to 9/11 and Iraq. Recent revelations by retired CIA officers, such as Paul Pillar and Ty Drumheller, make clear that the CIA basically got it right on Iraq and was ignored by the Bush administration…
Hookergate: Goss and Foggo
Our compliments to the New York Daily News for being the only paper we know of to lead with the mostly unsourced and speculative (but still totally true) hooker allegations in their Goss story…
…In related news, members of Congress have announced they will investigate the $21.2 million contract between the Department of Homeland Security and Shirlington Limousine of Alexandria, Virginia. As I first reported here on April 27, Shirlington is the firm that is deeply implicated in the Cunningham scandal and got the DHS contract despite being headed by a man with a lengthy criminal record. “The information we’ve obtained,” GOP Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama, who chairs the House subcommittee that oversees DHS, told the New York Times in a story that ran yesterday, “raises a number of serious questions, from the contracting process to possible security concerns.” Today, two members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Inspector General Richard Skinner, requesting further investigation into the DHS contracts with Shirlington Limousine…
…ABC News’ Christopher Isham reported today that a respected veteran CIA officer — Stephen Kappes — had already been asked to return to the agency as Hayden’s right hand. Kappes had left the agency when Goss was appointed as its head…
Stephen Kappes (born 1952) was Deputy Director of Operations (DDO) for the CIA from October to November 2004, when he resigned over internal politics. He succeeded James Pavitt. He was appointed in June, 2004. Previously, he was an Assistant Deputy Director of Operations (ADDO) beginning in June, 2002. Before being named ADDO, he served concurrently as Chief of the Counterintelligence Center and Associate Deputy Director for Operations for Counterintelligence.
He served in dangerous and difficult postings in Moscow and Pakistan. Towards the end of his tenure with the CIA he reported directly to President George W. Bush as the CIA’s point man in secret high-stakes negotiations with Libya that ended the rogue state’s weapons-of-mass-destruction programs.
Kappes joined the CIA in 1981 after five years as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. During his Agency career, Kappes has studied and speaks Persian and Russian.
During April, 2005, ArmorGroup, a British security firm, named him vice president in charge of global strategy.

||The Hayden-NSA PRE-9/11 and POST 9/11-spy program cover-up
PBS writes today, that “…General Hayden has been an enthusiastic supporter of the domestic surveillance program that is not operating under the law…”
What PBS does not tell is that this spy program was already developed years before 9/11, tolerated and approved by both Clinton and Bush:
…By the end of March 2001, according to another mainstream source, http://tinyurl.com/3fx2p (Washington Post), “the NSA began its first major push to involve the private sector in development of new SIGINT technology with an initiative it called Trailblazer”…
…In 2001, the Trailblazer program was developed under the order of the NRO, with sub contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and took partly place in the wing of the Pentagon, which was later officially hit by “Flight77″…
…Another “original NSA-plan” for “Trailblazer” was from 2 April 2001, then described as a “program to develop analytic capabilities to meet the challenge of rapidly evolving, modern telecommunications”, prime contracts were awarded to Booz Allen & Hamilton, Inc. , Lockheed Martin Corporation and TRW..
Trailblazer was much more than just an advanced “spy and satellite program”.
But already two months earlier, in March 2001, Logicon TASC announced it had won another “five-year, $57 million contract” …”with a U.S. intelligence agency to provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support for Trailblazer”…
…By now, it appears odd, that this high tech spy team around Booz, the NRO and the Pentagon, was not able to protect themselves on Sep11th. Neither an early evacuation was arranged or the “observation” of the “hijacked planes” had been recognised in time.
One of another Trailblazer partner, TRW and their subsidiary, Peter Peterson’s Blackstone Group, had similar “problems”.
However, the CIA wasn’t able to protect the building on Sep11th…
…The NSA originally selected one of the Pentagon’s top Private Military Contractrors, SAIC-led Digital Network Intelligence (DNI) Enterprise team that includes Northrop Grumman Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., The Boeing Company , Computer Sciences Corporation (later owner of DynCorp) and SAIC wholly-owned subsidiary Telcordia Technologies to contribute to the modernization of the NSA’s signals intelligence capabilities.
In October 2002, SAIC
…Meanwhile, the Trailblazer program developed into another experimental and mysterious level.
John’s background is most obscure.
This cab driver was already “arrested on charges of espionage last year. “The translator with no security clearance who is implicated in the Abu Ghraib scandal, John Israel, worked for a Titan subcontractor, the company said..”

the new undersecretary will “exercise authority, direction, and control over the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), the National Reconnaissance Organization (NRO), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Defense Security Service (DSS) and the DoD Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA).”
Cambone is a 1982 political science Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate School.
Besides being “a protege of Donald Rumsfeld,” he also was one of the authors of the Project for the New American Century’s Rebuilding America’s Defenses (PNAC), the radical, Strangelovian document that formed the basis for the Bush administration’s National Security Strategy.
On Page 60 of this PNAC report, in the section “Transforming U.S. Conventional Forces,” which discusses “long-term plans for the U.S. military”, it states:
“And advanced forms of biological warfare that can ‘target’ specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”
“…He won generally high marks at NSA despite Trailblazer, a massive technical modernization program that by all accounts spent billions and got meager results…
“…he has acknowledged that the agency deserves some blame for the Sept. 11 and Iraq weapons failures. He also admitted to Congress last year the failings of his ambitious program to upgrade the N.S.A.’s technology, known as Trailblazer, which by all accounts has cost billions for meager results…”
The media tries to spin as if “Trailblazer” isn’t part of the ‘controversial warrantless surveillance program” but it actually is the other way round.
This warrantless surveillance program is part of Trailblazer!
“…a major advance in tracking the digital communications NSA was intercepting—but ended up in the virtual dustbin as a $1.2 billion flop, according to numerous published reports…”
The claim, that SAIC and NSA failed on “Trailblazer” is absurd.
“…Meanwhile, Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), the lead contractor on the project, did not provide enough people with the technical or management skills to produce such a sophisticated system, according to industry and NSA experts familiar with Trailblazer. And, they said, the company did not say no when the NSA made unrealistic demands…”
SAIC does not confirm, if this program ever failed:
“…SAIC spokesman Jared Adams declined to comment, saying, “We have been asked to defer all comment regarding the NSA Trailblazer contract to the NSA…”
And ALSO the NSA does NOT confirm ANY of these alleged “numerous published records” regarding an alleged failure of ‘trailblazer’, which was already
The coverup continues:
“…NSA spokesman Don Weber said the agency would have no response to requests for comment…”
The myth of an alleged (9/11)-intelligence failure has to continue.

The government confesses to the FISC another series of mistatement of material fact in FISA applications
August 6, 2001
After September 11
NSA Director Michael V. Hayden, without Presidential authorization and using Executive Order 12333 as “authority”, begins an expansive surveillance program.
The USA PATRIOT Act amends FISA. The original standard that “the purpose” of the surveillance is to obtain foreign intelligence information is lowered to “a significant purpose”.
