Chapter 22

More U.S.-Iran Sitzkrieg,
More Chicago,
More Military Push-Back,
and Time’s Limited Hangout

Israel pulled out of Lebanon in mid-August, and drew global blowback for its wanton destruction of the hapless country.  Its army lost prestige on the Arab street by failing to root out Hezbollah near its northern border. 
Despite all these failures, many Info War indicators suggested that high level schemers were still pushing towards widening America ’s wars in the Middle East by attacking Iran .  The “Fifteen reasons why Iran will be nuked if we do not act now” cited by Jorge Hersh in his Jan 9, 2006 article listed in Chapter 18 still remained very much in effect.
To Captain May, this still automatically implied a second 9-11 false flag attack. How else could America reinstate the draft to get the additional manpower it needed?  How else could it create any kind of fig leaf of justification to cover over the same kind of naked aggression that its joined-at-the-hip partner Israel had just committed in Lebanon ?
Astute observers such as Pat Buchanan, Scott Ritter, and Wayne Madsen each sounded the alarm about possible war in the fall.
In the April 10, 2006 American Conservative article “An October Surprise?” Pat Buchanan wrote:


President Bush says Iranians are behind the more lethal IEDs, the roadside bombs killing our troops in Iraq . Rumsfeld warns the Iranian Revolutionary Guard may now be in Iraq . Cheney says Iran will not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. McCain says, “the military option is on the table.”
And Israel is getting impatient. Writes Yaakov Katz in the March 10 Jerusalem Post, “The United States has until now not done enough to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, a senior Defense Ministry official has told the Jerusalem Post ...”
Katz quotes the senior man directly: “America needs to get its act together. Until now the [Bush] administration has just been talking tough but the time has come for the Americans to begin to take some tough action.” Only one person is quoted by name in Katz’s piece, the hawkish Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz. This tells me Mofaz is using Katz to send Bush a message: “Stop dithering and get off your duff on Iran .”
The official wants Bush to impose severe sanctions to shut down Iran ’s economy to convince Iranians to get rid of their regime. But if sanctions do not work, bombs away. “This option may be needed but it should only be used as a last resort,” said the “senior official.”
But while Bush is pushing for Security Council sanctions, Russia and China are balking. France , Britain , and Germany may go along with diplomatic and mild economic sanctions, but there is no stomach there for air strikes. Thus, if Iran ’s nuclear program is to be dismantled, the Americans will have to go it alone with Stealth and B-2 bomber strikes.
Or Bush will have to answer to the Israeli Defense Ministry.
While there seems no sense of urgency in Washington , the Bush Doctrine and Cheney ultimatum have painted us into a corner. Either Iran ’s nuclear program is shut down, or the Bush Doctrine will have been defied by Tehran and Pyongyang , leaving Iraq as the Bush legacy.
All this has led to speculation that this summer or fall, Bush, his options having been exhausted, will order the air strikes.
What would be the benefits of such an October surprise?


In the 19 June 2005 article “The US war with Iran has already begun, ” former U.S. Marine Intelligence officer and UN Arms inspector Scott Ritter started out by making an analogy with the deceptions that led up to the Iraq invasion:


Americans, along with the rest of the world, are starting to wake up to the uncomfortable fact that President George Bush not only lied to them about the weapons of mass destruction in Iraq (the ostensible excuse for the March 2003 invasion and occupation of that country by US forces), but also about the very process that led to war.
On 16 October 2002, President Bush told the American people that "I have not ordered the use of force. I hope that the use of force will not become necessary."
We know now that this statement was itself a lie, that the president, by late August 2002, had, in fact, signed off on the 'execute' orders authorising the US military to begin active military operations inside Iraq, and that these orders were being implemented as early as September 2002, when the US Air Force, assisted by the British Royal Air Force, began expanding its bombardment of targets inside and outside the so-called no-fly zone in Iraq.
These operations were designed to degrade Iraqi air defence and command and control capabilities. They also paved the way for the insertion of US Special Operations units, who were conducting strategic reconnaissance, and later direct action, operations against specific targets inside Iraq , prior to the 19 March 2003 commencement of hostilities.
President Bush had signed a covert finding in late spring 2002, which authorised the CIA and US Special Operations forces to dispatch clandestine units into Iraq for the purpose of removing Saddam Hussein from power.
The fact is that the Iraq war had begun by the beginning of summer 2002, if not earlier.


Latter in this same article, Ritter noted a similar pattern already developing in regard to Iran :


The reality is that the US war with Iran has already begun. As we speak, American over flights of Iranian soil are taking place, using pilotless drones and other, more sophisticated, capabilities.
The violation of a sovereign nation's airspace is an act of war in and of itself. But the war with Iran has gone far beyond the intelligence-gathering phase.
President Bush has taken advantage of the sweeping powers granted to him in the aftermath of 11 September 2001, to wage a global war against terror and to initiate several covert offensive operations inside Iran .
The most visible of these is the CIA-backed actions recently undertaken by the Mujahadeen el-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group, once run by Saddam Hussein's dreaded intelligence services, but now working exclusively for the CIA's Directorate of Operations.
It is bitter irony that the CIA is using a group still labeled as a terrorist organisation, a group trained in the art of explosive assassination by the same intelligence units of the former regime of Saddam Hussein, who are slaughtering American soldiers in Iraq today, to carry out remote bombings in Iran of the sort that the Bush administration condemns on a daily basis inside Iraq.
Perhaps the adage of "one man's freedom fighter is another man's terrorist" has finally been embraced by the White House, exposing as utter hypocrisy the entire underlying notions governing the ongoing global war on terror.
But the CIA-backed campaign of MEK terror bombings in Iran are not the only action ongoing against Iran .
To the north, in neighbouring Azerbaijan , the US military is preparing a base of operations for a massive military presence that will foretell a major land-based campaign designed to capture Tehran .

In his 20 August 2006 article “Additional clues point to U.S. attack on Iran ” dated Aug 19-20, former naval intelligence officer Wayne Madsen wrote: 


Aug. 19/20, 2006 -- Additional clues point to U.S. attack on Iran .
State Department sources report that State's Iran Desk Officer Henry Wooster has suddenly been transferred to another position. Meanwhile, Vice President Dick Cheney's office is assembling a group of neo-cons from the Pentagon, State Department, and the National Security Council to cook up intelligence and talking points that will show Iran to be an imminent nuclear threat.

A second major reason why Captain May remained concerned about a possible imminent false flag attack involved the Congressional elections coming up in November 2006.  Given the horrible popularity and confidence numbers for Bush and his fellow Republicans, how else could the Bush cabal prevent Democrats from sweeping the election?  
A third important reason involved major terror exercises in Chicago and Detroit scheduled for September.  For the reasons outlined in Chapters 8 and 13, exercises are both a prime indicator as well as a prerequisite for a false flag attack. 
Despite all these ominous indicators, there was some good news.  There were signs of  growing counter currents within the establishment itself that resisted both another false flag attack and an attack on Iran .
First, many experts claimed that the Bush assertion that Iran was within range of completing an atomic bomb was every bit as much a fantasy as the lie that Iraq had WMD’s to justify the 2003 invasion.
In his Dec 11, 2007 article “NIE: Disloyalty to Royalty,” Capt. May described how insiders finally came out into the open and pulled the rug completely out from underneath neo-cons lies leading up through fall 2007:


"We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program." — 2007 NIE

Since last week’s release of the 2007 NIE, I’ve been in high spirits to find that my former intelligence colleagues have decided to talk truth to power, the way we were trained to do. By failing to support the White House lie of Iranian WMD danger this year they have in some measure atoned for supporting the White House lie of Iraqi WMD danger five years ago. They have provided much-needed leadership to other US professionals who have looked the other way when they should have been looking to their duty. I don’t think it is mere coincidence that the NIE was shortly afterwards followed by a New York Times bombshell about the CIA destroying evidence to cover up Bush administration torture policies.
I’m sure that behind the closed doors, King George is livid that professionals who were once compromised have become uncompromising in revealing unpleasant truths that undercut his prerogatives as our newfangled "unitary executive." His neocon minions are already attacking the new NIE as disloyalty. Call my opinion revolutionary if you wish, but I believe that disloyalty to royalty is all-American, and I hope that King George has not seen the last of it.

An important cross current involved U.S. military concern about “imperial overstretch.” 
By 2005 American troops were clearly having serious problems pacifying both Iraq and Afghanistan .   Imagine adding on to this a country with 2.4 times the population and 3.76 times the land area of Iraq .  In addition, Iran had special weapons which created even more potential headaches.   
The kinds of top brass who had once sided with Capt. May’s view in 1992 about avoiding a quicksand war in Iraq, and  who later flip-flopped in 2003 to support Bush’s invasion of Iraq, were finally beginning to return to the fold on the attack-Iran issue.
Among other things, they feared Iran advanced missiles and torpedoes.  Please recall in our prior discussion of the 2006 Lebanon War how Iran surprised Israel when the antiship missile it supplied Hezbollah (likely the Chinese-made C-802) heavily damaged the Israeli Sa’ar 5-class corvette INS Hanit that was trying to blockade Lebanon .
On April 3, 2006 reported “
Iran Says New Missile Test Successful

Iran conducted its second major test of a new missile within days on Sunday, firing a high-speed torpedo it said no submarine or warship can escape at a time of increased tensions with the U.S. over its nuclear program. ..
. . . Gen. Ali Fadavi, deputy head of the Revolutionary Guards' navy, said the ships that fire the Iranian-made Hoot had radar-evading technology and that the torpedo - moving at 223 miles per hour - was too fast to elude.
“It has a very powerful warhead designed to hit big submarines. Even if enemy warship sensors identify the missile, no warship can escape from this missile because of its high speed," Fadavi told state television. “
The Hoot's speed would make it about three or four times faster than a normal torpedo and as fast as the world's fastest known underwater missile, the Russian-made VA-111 Shkval, developed in 1995. It was not immediately known if the Hoot was based on the Shkval.

The   September 16, 2007 Defense Review article “U.S. Aircraft Carriers Vulnerable to Attack?: The Ticking Time Bomb” by David Crane lists  many advanced Iranian weapons systems, to include supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles.  
Nov 27, 2007 article “ Iran Extends Submarine Range to Hit Tel Aviv and US Mediterranean Targets  claimed that Iranian mini-subs already had the capability to launch supersonic SS-N-27 Sizzler anti-ship cruise missiles.  David Crane’s article noted:

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "So what?" Even if the Iranians get one of those super-duper missiles, the U.S. Navy's got SeaRAM, which can defeat those nasty Mach 2.5 (approx.) anti-ship missiles. The SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System can defeat it. It's our salvation. Well, not so fast. Ya' see, that little theory depends on two things: 1) that the enemy missile threat will be detected in time and SeaRAM will have a 100% kill rate, and 2) the 11-missile RAM launcher won't run out of missiles before the enemy does.
Boy, that's a lot to depend on. In the tactical shooting a.k.a. defensive shooting world, there's an old saying: "Action beats reaction." In other words, the actor always has the time advantage over the reactor. Time is the reactor's enemy, which means it will be our ships' enemy, if any of the now multiple countries who have supersonic anti-ship missiles and high-speed supercavitating torpedoes decide to launch them on us. Make no mistake, the first ships they'll launch against will be our aircraft carriers, and they'll probably launch a large number of these missiles at one time.
Let's give the U.S. Navy the benefit of the doubt, and say that it can stop 90% of the enemy missiles and/or torpedoes streaking towards the carrier(s). The result's going to be the same. Understand that if just one of these missiles or torpedoes hits the carrier, it's probably done. Even if it doesn't sink, it will most likely be taken out of operation. So, in effect, no more carrier. Let's say it takes two hits to destroy the carrier. All the enemy will have to do is fire at least 20 missiles at once, get its two hits on the carrier, and no more carrier. What if the enemy launches 20 missiles and 20 torpedoes at the carrier at the same time? Get the picture? 20 anti-ship missiles and 20 torpedoes might read like a big investment, but it's nowhere near the investment of a $5-$13.7 billion aircraft carrier. Not even close.
And, then there's the threat of bomb-laiden enemy unmanned aircraft systems/unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS/UAVs). Back in June 2006, an Iranian UAV/UAS flew and loitered over the USS Ronald Reagan supercarrier undetected and unmolested for 25 minutes before flying back safely to its base…

In the 11 Dec 2002 article “U Sank My Carrier!” author Gary Brecher explained how these weapons might pose an extremely serious threat to the U.S. Navy.

[High command anxiety about attacking Iran ] comes out of the "Millenium Challenge '02" war games we staged in the Persian Gulf this summer. The big scandal was that the Opposing Force Commander, Gen. Paul van Ripen, quit mid-game because the games were rigged for the US forces to win. The scenario was a US invasion of an unnamed Persian Gulf country (either Iraq or Iran ). The US was testing a new hi-tech joint force doctrine, so naturally van Riper used every lo-tech trick he could think of to mess things up. When the Americans jammed his CCC network , he sent messages by motorbike.
But that was just playing around. They wouldn't have minded that. Might've even congratulated van Ripen, bought him a drink for his smarts, at the post-games party.
The truth is that van Ripen did something so important that I still can't believe the mainstream press hasn't made anything of it. With nothing more than a few "small boats and aircraft," van Ripen managed to sink most of the US fleet in the Persian Gulf .

In addition to worrying about Iranian missiles and torpedoes at sea, U.S. military leaders were also concerned about serious tactical and logistical problems implied by a land war against Iran . 
For starters, the Hezbollah guerillas in Lebanon who gave the Israeli Army an unexpected tough time in summer 2006 were armed and trained by Iran .  Perhaps tangling with the Iranians themselves would not be so easy either.
It is 500 miles of mostly desert from America ’s key logistical base in Kuwait to Baghdad .   In the December 18, 2006
American Conservative, article How to Lose an Army:  Plow deep into Iraq and dare Iran to strikemilitary analyst William Lind wrote:


The Shi’ite militias already lie across our single supply line, and we should expect them to cut it in response to Iranian requests. We are already at war with the Mahdi Army, against which our forces in Iraq have been launching a series of recent raids and air strikes. A British journalist I know, one with long experience in Iraq , told me he asked the head of SCIRI, which controls the Badr Brigades, how he would respond if the U.S. attacked Iran . “Then,” he replied, “we would do our duty.”
Iran has a second, bolder option it could combine with a Shi’ite insurrection at our rear. It could cross the Iran-Iraq border with several armored and mechanized divisions of the regular Iranian Army, sever our supply lines, then move to roll us up from the south with the aim of encircling us, perhaps in and around Baghdad . This would be a classic operational maneuver, the sort of thing for which armored forces are designed.
At present, U.S. forces in Iraq could be vulnerable to such an action by the Iranian army. We have no field army in Iraq ; necessarily, our forces are penny-packeted all over the place, dealing with insurgents. They would be hard-pressed to assemble quickly to meet a regular force, especially if fuel was running short.
The U.S. military’s answer, as is too often the case, will be air power. It is true that American air power could destroy any Iranian armored formations it caught in the open. But there is a tried-and-true defense against air power, one the Iranians could employ: bad weather. Like the Germans in the Battle of the Bulge, they could wait to launch their offensive until the weather promised a few days of protection. After that, they would be so close to our own forces that air power could not attack them without danger of hitting friendlies. (This is sometimes know as “hugging tactics.”) Reportedly, the Turkish General Staff thinks the Iranians can and will employ this second option, no doubt in combination with the first.

In another article, Lind advised U.S. military units in Iraq to quietly horde fuel stocks as a last ditch “get out of jail for free” card in case of disaster.  Just like the beleaguered Greeks in Xenophon’s Anabasis, they might have to make a desperate fighting retreat out of the country just to survive.  They might even have to fight their way to Turkey (if it still remains an ally) or to Jordan and the Red Sea (if Jordan still remained friendly).
There were many other considerations worth mentioning.  War with Iran might escalate into a war with China and Russia .  Even without a direct war with these major powers, China and Russia could both create an endless nightmare by feeding weapons to insurgents that would now include not only Iranians, but also Iraqis, Afghans, and to some extent Pakistanis in border regions.  Worse yet, they might also equip them with the kinds of sophisticated anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons that enabled the Taliban to oust the Soviets in the 1980’s war in Afghanistan .  If the entire country of Pakistan got sucked into the fray, imagine trying to pacify 302 million people. ( Iraq 29 million, Afghanistan 31 million, Iran 70 million, Pakistan 172 million).
Furthermore, U.S. had already dumped over 2,000 tons of depleted uranium on Iraq and Afghanistan , already raising cancer rates world wide. Many experts such as Dr. Doug Rokke and Dr. Leuren Meuret were concerned that a war with Iran might raise global radiation to threaten the lives of hundreds of millions of people.  Ultimately, if too much depleted uranium gets released, it could turn earth into a permanently toxified planet that could support very little life  --and for a very long time at that.  Please recollect that aerosolized depleted uranium has a half life of 4.5 billion years, and is one of the most toxic substances known to man.

With this background in mind, let us now address growing U.S. military resistance to war with Iran .
On September 30, 2005, the Lowell Sun quoted retired LtGeneral William Odom, former head of the National Security Agency, who said,  “The invasion of Iraq I believe will turn out to be the greatest strategic disaster in U.S. history.”  Needless to say, LtGen Odom was not very enthusiastic about war with Iran either.
The 1 May 2006, the American Free Press article “The Revolt of the Generals” by Michael Collins Piper stated:

For generations, Republicans were strong supporters of the American military. But now that top military men are in open rebellion against the armchair civilian war hawks — the hard-line pro-Israel ideologues who directed President George Bush to order an invasion of Iraq and who now want war on Iran — the angriest voices condemning the military are from GOP circles.
Following the lead of the neo-conservatives, who are viewed as fanatics but still dominate the Bush administration and key GOP policy groups, many GOP loyalists are declaring war on the battle-tested generals, admirals and other military heroes who are saying, “Enough is enough.”
Although none of the military men have yet said “No more wars for Israel ,” their rhetoric in writings and public utterances says essentially that.
Conservatives roundly denounced former Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni as an “anti-Semite” for noting that pro-Israel neo-conservatives were the driving force behind the Iraq war and that everybody in Washington knew it. Zinni knew what he was talking about: he formerly commanded all U.S. forces protecting Israel in the Middle East .
More recently, another retired Marine, Lt. Gen. Greg Newbold, former director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, wrote in Time that the Iraq war was “unnecessary” and that the rationale for war by those whom he called “the zealots” made no sense. Newbold’s choice of the word “zealots” was loaded. The term arises from the legend of the Zealots — an ancient sect of Jewish fanatics.

The July 10, 2006 New Yorker article “Last Stand” by Seymour M. Hersh stated:

Inside the Pentagon, senior commanders have increasingly challenged the President’s plans, according to active-duty and retired officers and officials. The generals and admirals have told the Administration that the bombing campaign will probably not succeed in destroying Iran ’s nuclear program. They have also warned that an attack could lead to serious economic, political, and military consequences for the United States .

A crucial issue in the military’s dissent, the officers said, is the fact that American and European intelligence agencies have not found specific evidence of clandestine activities or hidden facilities; the war planners are not sure what to hit. “The target array in Iran is huge, but it’s amorphous,” a high-ranking general told me. “The question we face is, When does innocent infrastructure evolve into something nefarious?” The high-ranking general added that the military’s experience in Iraq , where intelligence on weapons of mass destruction was deeply flawed, has affected its approach to Iran . “We built this big monster with Iraq , and there was nothing there. This is son of Iraq ,” he said.


As previously mentioned in Chapter 6, I can reinforce Hersh’s article based upon personal experience.  I visited Col Donn de Grand Pre, author of Viper’s Venom, Rattler’s Revenge, and other books in the Barbarians Inside the Gates series, at his farm near Madison , Virginia in summer 2006.   He told me that according to his high level contacts in the Pentagon, there were top brass who had awakened to the reality of 9-11 as a coup against the U.S. government, and were even seriously considering launching a counter coup, and that furthermore as an earlier indication of this building resentment, the Oct 2003 attack on arch neo-con Paul Wolfowitz in Baghdad was either planned or permitted by high level U.S. military insiders.
While the push-back stories were encouraging, it was no time to become complacent.  No one knew if insider opposition was powerful enough to stop a false flag attack from the inside along.   Everyone knew that Zionist neo-cons were still both desperate and crazy, and like cornered rats, were capable of doing just about anything.
Looking ahead from the vantage point of 1 August 2006 to March 2007, Capt May saw a staggering garden variety of terror drills and military exercises reported by False Flag News, any of which might get highjacked by a false flag attack:


·  War Games

The night of 9 August 2006, 24 suspects were arrested in and around London charged with what is now known as the "2006 transatlantic aircraft plot."

"Liquid bomber" suspects shortly before their arrest

In his 16 Aug 2006 article "What Does A Terrorist Preparing To Bomb 10 Airliners Do Beforehand? Buys Cakes Behavior of liquid bomb suspects mirrors 7/7 patsies - no evidence of terror planning," Paul Joseph Watson smelled another heavy-handed false flag op. Significantly, he reported how the British public was also getting weary of "War on Terror" alerts:

The characters and behavior of the few known liquid bomb suspects are completely inconsistent with any notion that they were preparing to kill themselves in acts of mass terror - mirroring the pre-attack demeanor of the 7/7 patsies.
A CCTV image (top) shows one of the suspects, Tayib Rauf, entering a bulk order supermarket in Birmingham just two hours before anti-terror police swooped in to grab him for his alleged role in a plot to bomb ten transatlantic airliners. What were the tools of terror Rauf was acquiring before his kamikaze death mission? Knives? Peroxide to make the deadly liquid bomb? Cameras to detonate the bombs?
No - he was buying cakes.
"Does this look like the kind of person planning such a plot? He doesn't look like he's about to blow himself up," the owner of the store told the London Mirror.
Rauf chatted with the owner, who said he was more concerned about his father's confectionary business than the fact that he was about to aid in the mid-air slaughter of 3,000 people.
Any two-bit psychologist can tell you that this individual's behavior completely belies the notion that his life is about to come to an end. That in itself exposes the alleged plot for the monumental fraud it is...
...A week after the liquid bomb alert and we still have no motive and no evidence that suggests these individuals are anything other than unfortunate fall guys for Blair's latest act of psychological warfare against the British people.
But it's a battle of information that is increasingly swinging away from baseless fearmongering and in favor of the truth. BBC and British newspaper website forums have been swamped with people expressing their incredulousness about the reality of the latest so-called threat.
A London Guardian journalist in an article today highlights how he traveled the country and found widespread skepticism about the real nature of the alert amongst British citizens - with only tourists wholeheartedly trusting the government.
Assertions that the alert is nothing more than political propaganda have also been echoed by commentators and journalists themselves, following a rash of articles in broadsheet newspapers that scoff at the much vaunted scope of the alleged plot.

On August 28, 2009, The Chicago Sun Times carried "Daley: Chicago Loop Evacuation Drill To Be `Spontaneous' by Fran Spielman, City Hall Reporter, that set off alarm bells. It caused Captain May to zero in on Chicago , once again:


Chicago has conducted countless tabletop drills since Sept. 11, 2001 to simulate what would happen if the city was hit with a terrorist attack or natural disaster.|
Next week, the simulation will come “off the tabletop and out into the street.”
Emergency preparedness officials will stage a “voluntary evacuation” of fewer than a dozen buildings in a section of the Loop that Chief Emergency Officer Cortez Trotter described as “two square blocks, maybe more.” Sources said the Sears Tower will not be included in the drill, tentatively scheduled for next Thursday.
Building employees who agree to participate — and give up “several hours” of their workday — will be directed to designate “transport centers,” Trotter said. From there, they will presumably be taken by bus to central gathering places like McCormick Place, where they will be given food, water, washclothes, toothbrushes, blankets and other essentials.
McCormick Place got its first evacuation test during a South Side power outage earlier this month.
The goal of the drill is to test in a real-life situation how prepared Chicago is for a mass evacuation nearly five years to the day after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
“When you do tabletop exercises, that’s one thing. But it becomes real life to people when they can actually see it. Once they see these exercises unfolding and they can understand that, ‘Hey, that could be me tomorrow, the day after tomorrow or next year,’ they start to pay closer attention to it,” Trotter told a news conference at the city’s 911 emergency center.
“The exercise not only demonstrates what we would have people do once they reach ground level. It takes it to the next step. And that is, once you’re evacuated, you can anticipate going to assembly transport centers. You can anticipate being told to go to different locations. Once that takes place, then the second phase of the exercise that’ll be done — later on in the year, probably — picks it up at that point: the stockpiling. They’ll be made aware of that so that, if you are told to evacuate, we are starting to stockpile things that people need.”
Trotter said the evacuation will not cause a “considerable disruption” in the central business district. But it will cover an area “large enough so that we can get a good sampling” of where Chicago stands.
“Yes, we have a plan. Yes, we understand the plan. Yes, we believe that it will work well. We’re going to test it and make sure that it does and, if it needs to be tweaked, then we’ll do it…We had a recent power outage on the South Side. As a result of the evacuation that took place there, we’ve learned some things. We’ve tweaked the plan. Now, we’re bringing it downtown. Once we do it here, we’re going back to the neighborhoods,” he said.
Although building owners and managers have been notified, Mayor Daley said it’s pivotal not to reveal too many details about the drill in advance.
“You can’t say, ‘Everybody has to do this. Now, we’ll give everybody an alert. Here’s what you have to do.’ That’s not an evacuation plan. This has to be spontaneous….I’m not going to have people there two days before getting ready for an evacuation plan. You don’t do that. There has to be some chaos. People get frightened. They get upset,” he said.
But what about pedestrians and other innocent bystanders who have no idea that it’s only a drill? Isn’t there at least some danger of a War of the Worlds scenario, where passersby believe that it’s all for real and start panicking?
“Let’s hope not. Let’s hope that there’s enough interest and enough chaos to let us evaluate what would happen. But I doubt we would get into a War of the Worlds [panic] over just a few people,” Trotter said.
The Loop evacuation drill is just one of several activities planned for National Preparedness Month. City Hall is also planning public service announcements and presentations at schools and senior citizen centers to spread the word about disaster preparedness and the need to make advance plans to protect children, the elderly and pets.
Daley was joined at Monday’s news conference by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.). Durbin has inserted proposed language into the Post-Katrina Emergency Management Reform Act of 2006 that would provide grants to cities and states to develop evacuation plans, conduct drills and stockpile materials to supply emergency shelters.
The bill, now before a House-Senate conference committee, would not allow Chicago to apply for reimbursement for the Loop evacuation drill after the fact. But it would be available to finance future drills, the senator said.

On Aug 31, 11:31 AM, Fran, a member of Ghost Troop, sent Capt May the following alert email regarding the upcoming Chicago drill:


I'm sure you're already aware of the planned "Terror" drill for Chicago on Sept. 7.  This drill is going to be an evacuation of the loop business area in after a supposedly "small scale" 9/11 type attack.  Interestingly, the Sears Tower is not included in the buildings for this drill.
The Iranian deadline of Aug. 31 will be past, the Faux News station is in high gear passing propaganda to demonize Iran and justify war.  Israel is gearing up too. 
The "Bird Flu" drill in Virginia should not be ignored either. 
Cheney knows he will have to get this "terror" attack on the US done soon as many factors are coming together that will take this admin. down.  This will also give them the excuse to declare Martial Law and stop the Nov. elections which will remove their power, if allowed to go forward.
What can we do Capt?


On August 31, 6:07 PM, Ghost Troop member Kent Bentkowski reported the following disturbing indicators about Chicago to Capt May, which had disturbing similarities to the 2-4 May 2006 Chicago mission:


Captain May < > wrote:        

GT Kent, can you (or anyone else) get us a link for the Chicago drill?  CPTMAY

Greetings, Captain May and Holy Horde:

I went poking around the Illinois state government websites — and found the following:

This first link announces an Emergency Management Conference in Springfield, IL on September 5-7, 2006:

The Illinois state Homeland Security website mentions NOTHING of this drill on September 7, 2006:

If you click on all the links that you might think are relevant to the situation — Prevention, Response and Recovery, and the Calendar — you will find them ALL UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

If you go to the Illinois Public Safety website — you will find the same thing:

The Threat Level is ELEVATED — and when I started clinking on links — I found that these links keep sending me on a circular trip through NO INFORMATION related to the September 7, 2006 drill.

Next, I visited the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times and performed a search through the Chicago Newspapers Network. I used the term

September 7, 2006 terror drill

And received the following:

Your search returned no results

So, it appears as if they are DOWNPLAYING THIS for what reason? So, the drill can “go live?”

Then, I headed to DHS.GOV — and guess what? No information there either!

On the CBS Chicago website — this appears:

In the article on the Chicago CBS website — this is an excerpt from the article:

“But an e-mail obtained by The Associated Press addressed to tenants in one of the affected buildings indicated the drill involves four properties located at the intersection of Monroe Street and Wacker Drive, including the building in which the Chicago Mercantile Exchange is located.”

The drill is scheduled for 4:00pm.

The key phrase for this drill is:

“Off the tabletop and out into the street.”

The Cabalistic value of this phrase is 760 — which stands for all of the following:

Resemblance, Likeness, Witchcraft, Confinement, Detention.

This could translate into an attack that RESEMBLES a previous attack, which would be performed by the DARK ONES, and the witchcraft could be referring to the media’s effect on the population. The confinement could mean that the attack with be CONFINED to a specific area. The DETENTION could mean immediate identification and arrest of those allegedly behind the attack.

In some of the things I have just read, Mayor Daley went out of his way to say the SEARS TOWER was NOT a part of the drill. WHY would he say that? They are also referring to this as a LOOP EVACUATION DRILL. The LOOP is Chicago ’s train, subway system. Maybe an attack on the LOOP ?

Here are some more links that discuss the story:,0,1240863.story?coll=chi-news-hed,0,266426.story?coll=chi-news-hed

But, there are exactly 96 (mirror) hours between September 7, 2006 and September 11, 2006.

Think — and discuss . . .

Ghost Troop Info War Correspondent
Mission of Conscience / Patriots in Action

Later that evening on August 31st, Capt May sent an open email to Lt. Gen. Green, U.S. Army Inspector General, which provided his full September 2006 false flag Red Alert analysis.  He also copied this email to a wide spectrum of military, police, and ghost troop recipients, and posted the text on the Ghost Troop Yahoo Canada public message board: 

I have decided to reproduce both this and two other warning letters in their entirety.  While these letters have information already covered in other chapters of this book, they also have embedded within them a discussion of important Info War indicators that affected Captain May’s outlook during this period.  In addition, May is an excellent writer, and I like to reproduce his prose in full to serve as a role model for future activists.   




Foreword to Lt. General Green, US Army Inspector General


Thank you for your correspondence of yesterday, answering my article about Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell, the decorated Active Duty Army intelligence analyst and a Ghost Troop, and who is a member of Ghost Troop.  He is connected with another Ghost Troop you know,  US Ambassador Chase Untermeyer ( Qatar ), a former Asst. Secretary of the Navy.
As you know, these two patriots, like all Ghost Troops, have been involved in and witnesses to suspicious terror drills in the last three years, the particulars of which are now being covered by the media and investigated by your office.  We are issuing a red alert on the basis of an alarming article from the Chicago Sun-Times, which we think describes a an attempt by US officials to stage a "Chicago 9/11" attack on September 7, 2006:


Since the danger at hand involves people and matters central to a case you're already working on, has Army connections and represents a grave threat to the American People, I request that you take all appropriate actions to protect our citizens and constitution.  Ghost Troop will be following up on this alert with another public affairs mission, like those you are already investigating that involved our members Ambassador Untermeyer and SFC Buswell.  I am quite willing -- even eager -- to discuss our methodology with any interested intelligence professional, and can be reached through my editor at the Lone Star Iconoclast, Mr. Leon Smith.


Notes on Mayor Daley and his Chicago 9/11 Exercises in May, 2006


In the Chicago Sun-Times article, Mayor Daley's gives strong assurances that the 9/7 Chicago 9/11 exercises are nothing to worry about.  His words, though, don't reassure us at all.  As you know from your Ghost Troop IG case, we detected and published an earlier Chicago 9/11 drill, suspiciously like this one, that had been set up secretly by Homeland Security early in 2006, and was set to run this May (5/2 - 5/4).  On 4/26, alerted to exercises by our Internet associates, we contacted involved officials and learned about the exercise, which simulated the collapse of a major building, which we believe was the Sears Tower .
On 4/26 -- the same day -- we issued a red alert, and sent it to Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich via his National Guard and Chicago Police, as well as via other military commands.  We also published it internationally on the Internet.  The next day Governor Blagojevich issued a press release confirming the exercise details we had reported.  Things seemed quite suspicious, especially after we later found out that Mayor Daley was away from  Chicago during the terror exercises -- in Israeli with Israeli intelligence services.


Setting the Stage with Time Running Out


Time is running out for the Bush Administration, which explains everything else.  The US media, which has sold every official story to lead the nation to war after 9/11, is currently preparing the American People for the planned Chicago 9/11 terror attack.  In July they reported that Al Qaeda "homegrown" terrorists in Florida were planning to destroy the  Sears Tower ( Chicago ).  In August they reported an Al Qaeda terror plot to destroy UK-US airplanes over the Atlantic, and pointed out that the attack was to have been bloodier than 9/11 itself.  The story line so far leads to something like a Chicago 9/11, with a catastrophic body count.
If the attack doesn't happen before the Congressional elections in November, it will be a disaster for the Bush Administration.  Congress will be overrun by Democrats who have difficult questions to which there are no easy answers.  Future Congressional leaders are already mentioning possible oversight, investigation and impeachment of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.  When the Nixon Administration once reached this low point, the Armed Forces were alert against the possibility that they might use the military to create an emergency situation -- like another 9/11.
This current Congress can still be relied on to avoid doing its duty, especially if it is hit with an attack, like the one five years ago, just as it returns from the summer recess.  Several months ago some Congressional leaders made speeches about requiring the Bush Administration to ask for Congressional approval -- as required by the Constitution --  before starting a war with Iran .  Since then, though, it has allowed itself to be ignored, meaning that the Bush Administration still has the green light to do whatever it wants -- at least until a new Congress comes to power.

The Israel Lobby is pushing for a regional war with Iran , starting with a strategic air strike against it that would likely result in a world war.  As far as Israel 's concerned, this is an "existential" war -- for their very existence.  To them, any reduction in the US presence in the region is the beginning of their end.  Before the Iraq war, they pushed hard for an invasion, saying that the road to Jerusalem  passed through Baghdad , and the Bush Administration complied.  Now that things in the Mideast are a mess, they are pushing for an attack, this time saying that the road to Jerusalem passes through Tehran , and the Bush Administration is complying.
The post-9/11 war plan to dominate the Middle East has failed, with a disastrous quicksand war in Iraq .  We can't continue to fight as we have fought.  The public is burned out, though, just like the volunteer military that has been deployed for the last four years.  The Bush Administration must either pull out of the geopolitical game or double its bets by escalating the war to win back its losses.  The American People will never allow an unpopular leader to gamble their lives, liberties and children on an expanded war -- unless there's another 9/11.


A Family Affair -- with Cult Codes


Last week the current President Bush (43) met with the former President Bush (41), which may have been a meeting to prepare for the next 9/11 and World War Three.  They were shown in "attack boat" photos reminding us of Senior's service in Navy during World War Two, speeding toward martial glory.  It was a war propaganda photo, much like when Bush 43 took "Mission Accomplished" photos in a pilot uniform after his Mayday landing on the USS Abraham Lincoln shortly after the Iraq war began in April, 2003.
This week the Bush Administration has begun to use world war rhetoric about saving Western Civilization from political enemies.  It has called all parties who oppose US domination of the  Middle East  Islamo-fascists, and all those who don't want to fight them Appeasers, like who wrongly tried to avoid the last world war.  The signs and speeches are emphatic:

"We need to attack Iran, the new Fascist Germany. Those who don't agree with us are blind and dangerous to our homeland.  History will approve us, and future generations will thank us."

In photos from their recent meeting, the two Bushes wore the distinctive numbers they wore for the first time the weekend they met after 9/11.  The hat numbers are 41 for the senior Bush, and 43 for the junior Bush, and mark their order in the presidential number sequence.  Numbers are always of high interest to the Bush family.  Generations of Bush men have belonged to a elite secret society, the Skull and Bones, which uses codes like those that show up in the dates of terror attacks.
The Skull and Bones are small in number, but quite dangerous, as they gravitate toward the controlling positions in the nation's war apparatus of intelligence and military services.  They idealize war as the highest (and most profitable) pursuit.  They control the US Intelligence services at present, through Skull and Bones member John Negroponte.  Negroponte is the most powerful US intelligence official in history, installed as National Intelligence Director.  The Skull and Bones have provided two out of the last three presidents with Bush 41 and Bush 43, and were positioned to hold the presidency no matter who won the election of 2004, since both Bush 43 and his opponent, John Kerry, were Skull and Bones members.  The US Media mentions none of this.


Chicago 's Target Dates:  9/7, 9/9, 9/11


Coded dates gives them a secret calendar of time lines and deadlines for staging terror events.  They use numbers as their blueprint, like masons building a temple of great detail and size, and they consider it an art form.  They choose what they consider to be powerful numbers, and their patterns are not at all coincidental.
9/7 is the most likely date for a  Chicago 9/11 attack.  They've already prepared the exercise for that target date, and say they are ready for anything.  Note that the number of the date is a descending odd-number code:  9, 7.  This may match up with the numbers in the Bush hats, with Bush "43" meaning 4+3 or 7; and Bush "41" meaning 4+1 or 5.  Thus the exercise date, 9, 7 is part of sequence that also contains the Bush numbers, 7, 5
9/9 is a dangerous, too.  Remember how they used the date 7/7 ( London ) as a link to 7/11 (Mumbai).  Using the same coding, they may want to link a 9/9 ( Chicago ) to 9/11 (NY/DC).  Just as 7x11 (Mumbai)  = 77 ( London ), so 9x11 (NY/DC) = 99 ( Chicago ).  The 9/9 date is rich with code possibilities.
9/11 is quite an important date this year, since it's the 5th anniversary of the original 9/11.  It has a frightening symmetry, too, when you examine the full date of 9/11/06 and remove the zero, as they do.  Notice that the resulting 9/11/6 gives a most rare number, which, if you flipped it over, would give you a 6/11/9.  It's a sort of mirror number, their sort of number, which means nothing to the unaware but screams out its significance to those who understand the number code.  Finally, this year's 9/11 may be a hidden "5/11," since it's the "5th" anniversary of the original "11" of 9/11.  If we have a 5/11 "secret date" for "the fifth 9/11" then it would complete their major attacks coded date sequence:


9/11 (NY/DC)

7/11 (Mumbai)

5/11 (Chicago)

3/11 (Madrid)


More Details of a Terror Plot


They originally said Al Qaeda would attack the  Sears Tower back on 9/11, when reported that the Sears Tower ( Chicago ) and the Library Tower ( Los Angeles ) were on the original Al Qaeda target list.  They've been preparing the attack since then.  Larry Silverstein, who has close connections to  Israel , runs the Sears Tower , and made his bid to purchase the Sears Tower on the very day of the 2004 Madrid : 3/11.  He's the same Larry Silverstein who was the owner of the Twin Towers  on 9/11.
The Sears Tower has 110 floors, as did each of the Twin Towers .  Remove the zero in 110 and find the code number "11."  The Sears Tower zip code is the scariest number of them all.  It's 60606, which becomes "666," a destruction number if there ever was one.
The  US media repeatedly reports that Al Qaeda returns to its attack any target it has already tried to attack.  Again, according to the  US media's Al Qaeda script, Chicago has been a marked target since the 9/11/01.  Should a  Chicago 9/11 occur soon, the US media will be quick to point out that the attack wasn't really a surprise at all.
If the Chicago 9/11 event occurs, the Bush Administration will have achieved its goal of creating a pretext for World War Three.  It will use nuclear weapons against Iran , which will respond with region-wide attacks in the Middle East , effectively beginning a major war.  The Bush Administration will then mobilize the USA , which currently suffers, Bush 43 tells us, of a "strained psyche."
All of this will mean a return to the draft, economic deprivation and further tightening of national police powers -- and more 9/11's, if necessary.  It will also begin official retaliations against patriot groups like Ghost Troop who have caused so many problems for high officials who conspired to commit mass murder and high treason against the American People.

PS about Prior Evidence


Had it not been for the Ghost Troop involvement in alerting Chicago to the prior 9/11 exercise held in May (5/2 - 5/4), I believe the Chicago  9/11 attack would already have occurred.  Without our efforts no warning of the secret exercises would have reached the public, and no impediment would have stopped the plan.  I offer the three resources below to any who are interested in what happened last time, and how close we came to the next 9/11 then.  If we are not vigilant, we will not do so well this time.

2.  A resource page prepared by the Irish 911 Truth Movement on our role the May 2-4 Chicago 911 attempt, which contains my interviews with broadcast media as the situation developed:

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED

Caveats: NONE

On 4 Sept 2006 Captain May subsequently published in the 4 Sept 2006 Lone Star Iconoclast his "Red Alert: 9/11/06". 
Both this alert and the follow on 11 September 2006 Red Alert update were posted on the Internet several days before the publication date for the print edition, thereby giving enough lead time to deter a false flag attack:  

RED ALERT: 9/11/06
( Chicago , Detroit & Houston )
Four-Square Analysis: The Who and Why

Almost five years after the first 9/11, all America is divided into three equal parts, and all of them have strong beliefs:
A third says it just doesn’t trust this government, citing Iraq or Katrina as the main reasons why. They want to get out of the war in Iraq and stay out of the war with Iran .
A third says it simply hates this government, and wants to remove it for ordering or allowing 9/11 five years ago to take us to war in the Middle East . They say the media covered up 9/11 and is setting up the second, follow-up 9/11, so they use the Internet to get around the media, and the media calls them conspiracy theorists.
A third says it supports the government, which is run by the Neocon Republicans, and who now say that the only way to win the global war is to start a world war. Almost five years after 9/11, their war has been an utter failure, and they are fighting mad about it. In recent days they have threatened consequences for their foreign and domestic enemies, calling the one group fascists and the other appeasers. The joke in Washington now is that they’ll need Osama Bin Laden to save the Republican Congress on the 11/7 elections, or to save their president from impeachment afterwards.
The Neocons wrote their "Project for a New American Century" world domination plan in 2000, stating in it that the U.S. would be difficult to lead to war without "some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor ." 9/11 was just the kind of thing they’d wanted, and on the night of 9/11, their president wrote in his diary that "the Pearl Harbor of the 21st Century took place today," and the next day they began their war plans.
They have used the threat of Al Qaeda in the last two elections, but the threats aren’t budging falling poll numbers any more. Only a second 9/11 might reverse this slide, and energize the public — like a another new Pearl Harbor . If it were to happen, they could lead the nation to a second war, this time with Iran instead of Iraq ; they could shut up appeasers at home; and if necessary they could arrest, confine and prosecute the conspiracy theorists who think that the government had anything to do with either the first or the second 9/11.
The media has spent five years saying that a second 9/11 is inevitable, and all this summer they’ve said that homegrown terrorists in Canada , Florida and the UK are planning to blow us up in our buildings, airplanes and tunnels. Last week they said Homeland Security was setting up terror exercises in major Midwestern cities around 9/11/06, to protect us. The conspiracy theorists don’t feel protected, though, since they have learned that on 9/11/01 the U.S. government was holding exercises to protect us from the very attacks that happened to us, and on 7/7/05 the UK government was holding exercises to protect their citizens from the very attacks that happened to them. To conspiracy theorists, it’s clear that the terror exercises were setting up the terror events.

Three Targets and Times: The Where and When

CHICAGO , 9/7/06: Chicago has major terror exercises on 9/7, four days before 9/11/06. Recently the Chicago Sun-Times carried the story "Daley: Loop evacuation drill to be spontaneous" — <>. The media says that Al Qaeda once wanted to destroy the Sears Tower ago on 9/11/01, and once Al Qaeda has chosen a target, they’re sure to strike it sooner or later. Just this spring media said that Al Qaeda was casing the Sear Tower , and just this summer they said that a Florida Al Qaeda cell was planning to blow it up. Citizens of the Windy City were terrified during the strange 7/11 train derailment in one of their underground tunnels. When it happened everyone on the train immediately thought of the London 7/7 train bombings of just over a year before — and of the Bombay 7/11 train bombings of that very day. They believed their city was the next terror target, and they may still be right.
DETROIT , 9/9/06: Detroit has major terror exercises on 9/9, the two days before 9/11/06. The Windsor Star recently carried the story " Detroit on guard for huge disaster" — <>. The Motor City is quite close to the Canadian border, where media said a Canadian homegrown terror was plotting, and who would be surprised if they crossed the border to do something in Michigan ? The exercises are reacting to tunnel attacks, and recent exercises have practiced falling buildings like the Twin Towers or Sears Tower .
HOUSTON, 9/11/06: This summer Houston media has said that Al Qaeda is a strong local threat, and would like to blow up area refineries, which are abundant around the Bayou City. The Houston media has kept a tight lid on a series of major, market-rocking explosions in the Texas City British Petroleum and Beaumont Exxon Mobil refineries, all of which I predicted and published weeks in advance. I covered the subject in my 7/17/06 Lone Star Iconoclast commentary, "9/11, 7/11, 3/11 Terror Dates — Is there an embedded code, and can we use it to save ourselves? — <>. If there is a petro-9/11 the biggest city of the Bush home state, look for Big Oil to make a killing on price changes — and for that reason keep a close eye on them and their refineries.

A Pair of Points: The What and How

We Americans want our liberty back, especially our liberty from state terror, but we must pay for it with simple and sensible efforts to behave like a free people. In the 19th Century the American Wendell Phillips wrote "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." I urge every American to buy back their liberty due vigilance, especially from now to the 11/7 elections. We must speak, write and act freely, even if it is an unwelcome duty from which too many have hitherto hidden. As a lifelong military man, I swore an oath in 1977 to defend my country and its constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Writing and posting this commentary is my way of that duty, that I still carry in my middle years, even if it means they may be my last years.
It is worthwhile to oppose the tyranny of our times because it’s clear — at least to me — that we shall regain our balance. Five years ago we lost it badly when we were shoved into a quicksand war from behind, then told that the people the Neocons wanted us to attack had done the shoving. It was all a lie. Our true enemies are apparent now, and becoming more apparent with each passing day. The once-powerful Neocons are but a poor copy of the real Nazis who proclaimed and pursued a Thousand Year Reich. Their war plan has failed, their New American Century, which was the proclamation and pursuit of their Republican Reich.


      The following week, May published in the 11 Sept 2006 Lone Star Iconoclast his  UPDATE to RED ALERT:  


(NASA, Ft. Monroe & Houston )

Last week the Lone Star Iconoclast — and other media worldwide — carried my "RED ALERT 9/11/06 ( Chicago , Detroit & Houston )." The article warned of a fifth-anniversary 9/11 attack, code-named 9/11-V, to justify Big Brother government and an attack on Iran . After the monitoring of developments since then, the danger of a 9/11-V attack seems even greater now than a week ago.

Bush Media & the Al Qaeda Script

Since Labor Day the media has blitzed us with terror, showing the official devil, Osama Bin Laden — along with the official diabolical team, Al Qaeda. He praises the 19 hijacking terrorists officially blamed for the 9/11/01 attack, and the 19 are shown making pre-martyrdom statements with the flaming Twin Towers and Pentagon in the background. Other masked and menacing minions practice karate kicks and judo grapples as they go through rigorous training.
Even normally mum mainstream media joke that it seems Bin Laden works for George W. Bush. In the wake of the Bin Laden propaganda package, Bush has asked Congress to strengthen his powers against the judiciary and Constitution with specific regulation authorizing domestic spying and Gitmo torture — all to protect the public, of course.
Bush and his media know that the more they terrorize us, the more willingly we shall accept a police state and a world war. The only thing that could make us even more willing would be another 9/11 attack. The new Bin Laden tapes remind us of what the media constantly tells us: It isn’t really a matter of IF, but a matter of WHEN.

A Deadly Duo: Ft. Monroe & NASA

A rapidly growing third of the public now believes that the Bush Administration staged the attacks of 9/11, and don’t trust the government when it conducts terror practice. They correctly point out that on 9/11/01, U.S. air defenses were running terror drills simulating aircraft crashing into U.S. buildings; and on 7/7/05 London police were running terror drills simulating the bombings of their London trains. In both cases, the terror drills were used to set up the terror events.
On Wednesday, 9/6, the Virginia Beach News reported that Ft. Monroe, Virginia, will be conducting highly suspicious terror drills from Monday, 9/11, through Wednesday, 9/13.
In the last year, two Ft. Monroe exercises, each simulating a Hiroshima-style Al Qaeda nuclear attack, have coincided with terror set-ups in the Houston Metro area.
To make things worse, NASA’s space shuttle Atlantis lifted off on Saturday, 9/9, just ahead of the Ft. Monroe exercises. The launch of the shuttle allows the federal government to exercise national security controls — especially in Houston, NASA’s Space City — that make it quite easy to set up a terror attack, or cover up the details afterward. NASA has sent the space shuttle into orbit two times since the Columbia catastrophe of three years ago, and both of those shuttle missions have coincided with terror set-ups in the Houston Metro area.

Ft. Monroe , NASA & Texas City: 7/28/05

Ft. Monroe was simulating a U.S. Hiroshima and Discovery had been in orbit for two days on Thursday, 7/28/05. That afternoon in Texas City , just south of Houston , British Petroleum blew up. Hours later, after dark, hundreds of thousands of Houstonians looked south and saw a sight that created mass terror: a nuclear attack on Texas City — or so they thought. My Houston police contacts and I discussed the explosion the next day and agreed that it was a one-hour eruption of energy that was intended to look like a nuke. We wondered whether it was a new kind of weapon on board the space shuttle. We placed the explosion either directly over Texas City or further south over the Gulf of Mexico . We believed it was originally to coincide with the Hiroshima nuke Ft. Monroe was setting up, and instead of being an officially suppressed event (as it is now), it would have been played a million times, the way the Twin Towers demolition has been played, to make the USA want to attack the Middle East.

Ft. Monroe , NASA & Texas City: 1/31/06

Ft. Monroe was simulating another U.S. Hiroshima on 1/31/06, and we had been warning the citizens of Texas City that they were in great danger for two weeks previously. What sent us into red alert mode that time was NASA’s launch of the New Horizon Pluto Mission — a 9-year mission to the 9th planet, named after the god of death — on 1/19. We believed the 1/19 date (a backwards 9/11) and death god theme comprised a "go code" for another attack, and events supported our analysis. As the Ft. Monroe exercises were running, Texas City residents, edgy because of our Internet alert, became terrified when Bush Administration nuclear forces turned up on the beaches south of the city, saying they were part of secret exercises.

NASA & Baytown: 7/2/06

This summer NASA originally scheduled its space shuttle Discovery launch for 7/1/06, and once again we were active in our public affairs effort to warn the public, especially in the Houston area. In previous weeks I had published a widely read article in the Iconoclast stating that there might be a set-up in the petro-cities of Southeast Texas . Again events bore out the analysis and prediction: One day after the scheduled Discovery launch, there was another set-up explosion of a refinery, this time in Baytown ’s Exxon Mobil.

Summing Up Serious Trouble

None of what I’ve written above is new to my readers. I wrote an overview of the ongoing danger in my 7/17/06 Lone Star Iconoclast article: "9/11, 3/11, 7/11 Terror Dates — Is There a Code?"
The article contains mainstream and alternative links to validate my assertions of an official set ups of terror attempts, and official cover ups afterward.
The most frightening part of my red alert is the way the Pentagon, sworn to defend the American People, has reacted to it. After weeks of correspondence with command echelons of the Army, I sent the red alert straight to them — but they have been anything but straight in reply. A one-paragraph, unsigned reply [dated 6 Sept] from the Army Inspector General proves that our military leaders are quite aware that the American People are in grave danger, and quite intent on passing the buck and shirking their duty:

Captain May,
Perhaps you have the wrong agency. The Department of the Army is not responsible for addressing criminal matters. I recommend you revaluate (sic) your concerns and submit them to one of the agencies responsible for handling issues of this magnitude. I am certain you know who they are. I am sorry we could not be more helpful regarding your efforts. [Unsigned]

It’s hard to read such a reply without remembering that the Pentagon closed its eyes and ears when loyal American officers warned of an imminent Japanese attack against Pearl Harbor 65 years ago. Historians have suggested that the Pentagon did so because it wanted a Pearl Harbor attack to mobilize the nation for World War Two. Do they now want a 9/11-V attack to mobilize us for World War Three?

Obviously 9/7/, 9/9, and 9/11 2006 came and went, Chicago did not get mini-nuked,  and America did not go to war with Iran .
However, did the foiled false flag pattern persist?  Were there any “abort codes?”
At a minimum, there was highly suspicious activity.  In his article 26 Sept 2006 Lone Star Iconoclast article “The Devil In George Bush”, Capt. May recounted Vice President Cheney’s threat made on the September 10th.  

Unleashing Hell on Earth

To Bush these voices of dissent at home and abroad are all part of a vast conspiracy to undo him and his New American Century. Accordingly, he has turned to threaten all parties who are against him, and has recently turned his Beelzebub of a vice president against them.
Many remember that Dick Cheney sounded like Darth Vader the weekend after 9/11, when he told Tim Russert on Meet the Press that the U.S. would have to turn to "the dark side" to oppose its post-9/11 enemies. Many shuddered on 9/10/06, the day before the fifth anniversary of 9/11, when Cheney winked at the same Tim Russert on the same Meet the Press and said that the next attack against the U.S. might involve a nuclear attack that could kill a million, or biowarfare that could bring on a plague.
Russert took it all in stride without asking a single question as to whether the U.S. public is being set up for an attack. In an era of "don’t ask, don’t tell" ethics, the media doesn’t mention that the Pentagon is regularly practicing nuclear attacks against U.S. cities and citizens out of Ft. Monroe , Virginia , or that it is practicing biowarfare attacks against U.S. cities and citizens out of Ft. Dietrich , Maryland . It doesn’t mention that such an attack would allow Bush to initiate nuclear war abroad and lock up disruptive conspiracy theorists at home — all for the good of the U.S. public, of course. It doesn’t mention that the only way forward in the quicksand world war the Bush League has started is to mobilize the economy and initiate the draft.

When Cheney was asked by Russert on the 10th, whether Iraq’s lack of WMD’s made any difference in hindsight to justify the invasion of Iraq, Cheney said “we would do exactly the same thing” all over again regardless of the quality of intelligence.   He also stated that Iraq turned the corner for America because it had written a new Constitution and had held elections.
There was also speculation by Ghost Troop about whether a Chicago NBC News Channel Five report about a burst main water pipe on the fifth anniversary day of 9-11 may have reflected an abort code: 


Broken Water Main Disables Wacker Drive

Northbound Lanes Of Lower Wacker Closed

POSTED: 1:12 pm CDT September 11, 2006

UPDATED: 1:31 pm CDT September 11, 2006

CHICAGO -- Crews are expected to be at the scene of a broken water main downtown through the day Monday.
A 12-inch water man broke on Lower Wacker Drive early Monday, shutting down the northbound lanes of the busy thoroughfare.


Officials said those lanes will likely remain closed all day as work continues. 


Capt. May noted that the Sears Tower is located at 233 Wacker Drive, a numeric reversal of the Skull and Bones lodge number of 322. The story was posted on 9/11/06 at 112, a numeric reversal of 2-11, and the story was updated at 131, an anagram of the 3-11 Madrid numbers. 
The Fifth anniversary of 9-11 also saw renewed national media spin-doctoring, as recounted by Kent Kentroversy, a Ghost Troop analyst.




In the fifth anniversary of 9/11 issue of TIME magazine, the editors have decided to pull what is known as a 'Limited Hang-Out,' which is allowing PART of the truth to be known, while hiding the more damaging aspects of that truth from the American people. DO NOT be fooled by this sleight-of-mind magic trick!

by Kentroversy

In their September 11, 2006 issue, TIME magazine has done what is known in True-Government-Crime circles as a LIMITED-HANG-OUT which is to allow the lesser damaging aspects of a crime to become public knowledge, while hiding the most damaging aspects, to misdirect that audience. In the case of this issue of TIME, the most damaging aspects remain hidden -- that the Israeli intelligence agency MOSSAD was instrumental in carrying out the attacks of that day, as evidenced by the planted media story of the 'Israeli Art Students,' who were seen in celebration, and were caught with video equipment filming the events in New York City. What happened to THIS part of the 9/11 story? Well, they were allowed to leave the country without being questioned by anyone from the Bush regime.
The powers that be decided that a breather was in order, and efforts must now be made to redirect the 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT in the same way that the Viet-Nam peace movement was manipulated 35 years ago. However, this time, very few people -- save for the fence-sitters -- will fall for this technique at the present time.
What is also interesting about the TIME articles (linked below), is that the propaganda campaign issued forth through POPULAR MECHANICS did not have the desired effect, and this is why they are trying again with TIME. Nor will this campaign in TIME have the desired effect, as there is a large part of the citizenry who no longer believe Bush Jr., and they no longer believe ANY government official.
And, why should they?
If all they do is lie and obfuscate, how can they be believed?!
So, here is where we are at, five years after 9/11 ...
Bush Jr. and his representatives LIED about there being weapons inside Iraq, as well as lying to us about a link between Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden, who is dead, by the way. The death of Osama Bin Laden is the reason WHY he has not and will not be captured. If there ever was a link between Hussein and Bin Laden, their common bond would have been Daddy Bush, who sold weapons to Hussein during the time when Al-Qaeda was known as the Mujahadeen. As the Mujahadeen, they were called FREEDOM FIGHTERS. That was when they were fighting Russia . When the Mujahadeen morphed into the Taliban and Al-Qaeda, it was only then that they had begun to be called terrorists.
Colin Powell lied to the U.N. Security Council and exaggerated a threat that didn't exist. He showed cartoons and artist renderings of munitions that did not exist, in his lying in the run up to the Iraq quicksand war, which the USA has since lost to large groups of insurgent citizens, who saw America as an invading force that was neither desired nor invited. When Colin Powell suggested that the Bush regime pull out of Iraq and call a loss a loss, he was asked for his letter of resignation. Powell was then replaced by Condi Rice, who has been more compliant with the wishes of the puppet-masters.
As the lies continued, Bush Jr's approval ratings fell precipitously. They are currently at a level where pressure may be put on him to tender his own resignation, just as Nixon had to when he was in a similar position because of Watergate. Junior's current approval ratings are in the 25%-35% range, which means that he is likely to get nothing done in the sunset of his Presidency. This 25%-35% range is reported by the controlled mass media, and honest online polls have his approval at about 10% at the present time.
This means that he has lost a large part of his own base, as people began to question many aspects of the government's own conspiracy theory concerning 9/11. This is creating a situation whereupon the Congress may flip to a Democratic House AND Senate in the mid-term election in a few weeks.
During the past five years, the 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT has proven that citizen activism is NOT dead in the United States. The PEACE MOVEMENT has a wonderful leader in Cindy Sheehan, and even though it is a shame that Casey Sheehan had to die -- she has taken her grief to the streets, as she refuses to mourn behind closed doors. Ms. Sheehan has been in Junior's face, following him to Crawford , Texas , where he hid behind his own closed doors -- afraid to confront a single grieving mother.
The PATRIOT MOVEMENT has found a committed group of activists in the MINUTEMEN, who patrol the Mexican border, even as the Bush regime prefers to keep it open, simply because it provides the pretext for the merging of Canada , the USA , and Mexico into the PAN-AMERICAN UNION. And, how has the Bush regime responded to this? They have harassed the MINUTEMEN at every turn, and have lead a highly negative media campaign against them, where their patriotism has been called into question.
The TRANS-NAFTA HIGHWAY is encountering vociferous opposition, and here again, another group of citizen activists has risen to the call of duty, as many people clearly see this as the ruination of the country that we all love so much. Here, one has to wonder how they can even make plans for things like this without the public referenda that is clearly needed before they can move forward with any project such as this?
The INTERNET has become a powerful tool for organizing activists, and many millions of like-minded people have gotten together to rise up against the powers that seek to suffocate us and our political voice. Within the past year or so, people have uncovered plans for something called 'Internet 2' which is a replacement Internet, where the activist aspect of the current Internet will be censored, just as it is in China . This is the way in which these people look upon the citizen activists -- as a meddlesome group who seek to prevent the completion of their plans for their much-coveted NEW WORLD ORDER.
The past several months has seen the release of propaganda-based films about 9/11, where large portions of the events of that day have been fictionalized so they match the official-fiction of what the government claims happened. These films, including one theatrical version of Flight 93, have been disasters, as very few people have bothered to watch them. I personally viewed the TV fiction of Flight 93, and it took so many liberties with the truth that I simply could not sit through the entire presentation.
Most recently, controversy surrounded the TV mini-series 'The Path to 9/11.' Harvey Keitel, who plays ex-FBI agent John O'Neill in the film (who died on his first day on the job as head of WTC Security), had expressed deep concern in an interview with CNN's Showbiz Tonight:

Keitel: Yeah, I had questions about events -– material I was given in the Path to 9/11 that I did raise questions about. Yes, I had some conflicts there.
Q: How was that met?
Keitel: With discussion ... ummm ... with argument. When I received the script it said ABC HISTORY PROJECT -– I took it to be exactly what they presented to me. History -– and that facts were correct. It turned out not all the facts were correct and ABC set about trying to heal that problem ... in some instances it was too late because we had begun.
Q: Do you feel that anything should be changed in this film?
Keitel: Yes I do. This is a tough issue ... you can compile certain things as long as the truth remains the truth. You can’t put things together, compress them and then distort the reality.
Q: ... in the case of September 11th though, do you feel that it is an absolute responsibility that it be factually accurate even if it is a dramatization?
Keitel: Absolutely, you cannot cross the line from a conflation of events to a distortion of the event. No. Where we have distorted something we have made a mistake -- and that should be corrected. It can be corrected. It can be corrected by the people getting involved in the story that they are going to see.
NOTE: Conflation means combining two or more sources, to arrive at a single source. In the case of this mini-series, this was done with COMPOSITE CHARACTERS nad the time-compression of certain events -- which distorted the truth.

The miniseries posted a 7.6 rating and a 12 share in the 8:00pm hour, then rose to a 7.6/11 at 9:00pm, finally peaking with a 7.9/13 during the 10:00pm hour. While ABC is trying to say that this was a highly-rated program, the overnight ratings for part one say otherwise. At the 8:00pm hour, only 8.375 million people were tuned-in, with only 12% of the nation watching. At the 9:00pm hour, the ratings were identical. At the 10:00pm hour, after the football game on NBC, a mere 330,600 people tuned in, representing a 7.9 rating.
On the second night, 'The Path to 9/11' scored a 7.4 rating and a 10 share, with only 8.154 million people watching. Even though ABC was keen to call this a success, these numbers show the reality that this $40 MILLION DOLLAR propaganda campaign was a complete flop. Worse yet, the show has been lambasted in the blogosphere, with the typical rating given as a D- or less. My own rating for this six-hour waste of time was an F- -- and I am being charitable to give it such a high rating. On a scale from 1 to 100, I would give 'The Path to 9/11' a 2.
Considering that ABC spent a reported $40 MILLION DOLLARS on this mini-series, it was an unmitigated disaster. The broadcast was commercial-free, but ABC failed to mention that the reason for this was no corporation would sponsor the film, and NOT because of dramatic license, as suggested by their disclaimer at the beginning of the broadcast.



    Tensions over Iran and terrorism were not going away anytime soon.  
    On Sept 17, 2006h  the article “American Hiroshima: Is Next Attack Imminent? Muslims ordered to leave the United States hit multiple news sources.  It was submitted
by Homeland Security NTARC News: 



American Hiroshima

This story has not been confirmed through U.S. Law Enforcement or Intelligence Sources. The purpose of publishing it at this time is not to stir fear, but to heighten vigilance and alertness. Should you spot any suspicious activity please notify The Department of Homeland Security and/or The FBI immediately.
Urgent news from Abu Dawood, the newly appointed commander of the al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan :
Final preparations have been made for the American Hiroshima, a major attack on the U. S.
Muslims living in the United States should leave the country without further warning.
The American Hiroshima attack will be commandeered by Adnan el Shukrijumah “seen above” (”Jaffer Tayyer” or “Jafer the Pilot”), a naturalized American citizen, who was raised in Brooklyn and educated in southern Florida .
The al Qaeda operatives who will launch this attack are awaiting final orders. They remain in place in cities throughout the country. Many are masquerading as Christians and have adopted Christian names…


Then in October 2006 the military  “push back”  theme returned once again.  In his Oct 16, 2006 Lone Star Iconoclast article “Is War with Iran the October Surprise?” Capt May described resistance by officers on the U.S.S. Eisenhower: 

An American Armada

As I write, the U.S. Navy’s Second Fleet has dispatched the aircraft carrier Eisenhower, attended by a strike group of subordinate ships, from its Norfolk home to the Persian Gulf , where it is due to arrive on Oct. 21. The strike group will link up with other pre-positioned military assets, and could easily start a war with Iran , making it part of the ultimate October Surprise.
Officers from the Eisenhower have reached out to the government, military and media ever since the orders came, protesting that they don’t want to be used to initiate a war with Iran. They assert that this is against their service oath to the Constitution, which clearly states that only the Congress — not the president — can start a war. Their distress signal has reached official circles, thanks to a September article by The Nation magazine. It’s a confirmation of a New Yorker story in the spring, by Seymour Hersh, alleging that the Pentagon was then putting the brakes on a Bush administration itching for a war with Iran.
Congress pretends not to notice what is happening, though, either too scared, too involved, or too implicated to do its duty. It shamelessly gave away its authorization to an Iraq War in 2002, six months before Bush began the attack, and hasn’t said a word against what may be the preparation for an Iran War in 2006. It’s been many months since I’ve heard Congress say it doesn’t think Bush has the right to start a new war — and that means it thinks he does…

As an important aside, May’s article also described how the Bush cabal intended to use war as an excuse to clamp down on our civil liberties:

….Bush [can use] war as a perfect excuse to sign the Detainee Treatment Bill — the torture bill — that Congress delivered to his desk two weeks ago. Thus empowered, he could suspend civil rights — going back to habeas corpus — from anyone he chooses, whether they are foreigners or U.S. citizens. That would go a long way toward silencing his domestic critics, whom he considers traitors, and who are the greatest single impediment to the world war plan he has served.

Significantly, four months after May’s October article, another “push-back” story appeared in major media.  The 25 Feb 2007 Sunday Times article “ U.S. Generals ` will quit’ if Bush orders Iran attack” by Michael Smith and Sarah Baxter stated:  

SOME of America ’s most senior military commanders are prepared to resign if the White House orders a military strike against Iran , according to highly placed defence and intelligence sources.
Tension in the Gulf region has raised fears that an attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely before President George Bush leaves office. The Sunday Times has learnt that up to five generals and admirals are willing to resign rather than approve what they consider would be a reckless attack.
“There are four or five generals and admirals we know of who would resign if Bush ordered an attack on Iran ,” a source with close ties to British intelligence said. “There is simply no stomach for it in the Pentagon, and a lot of people question whether such an attack would be effective or even possible.”

Also very significant during late 2006 was “push back” by foreign leaders.  In his Sept 26, 2006 article “The Devil in George W. Bush   Capt. May describes Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez’s condemnation of Bush before the U.N.


The Devil In George W. Bush

Hugo Chavez wasn’t the first brave person to say that George W. Bush is a devil, nor, I pray, will he be the last. The Venezuelan president was stating simple truth when he described Bush as a leader whose geopolitical aims always translate to imperial war profiteering, and whose twisted character make him an ideal pick for leader of a world war conspiracy.
Chavez wasn’t altogether theological in his accusation, he was also psychological. He called Bush a sick man, an alcoholic with mental problems. For this bit of truth Chavez has been widely reviled by the U.S. media — and widely applauded worldwide. Just ask any recovering alcoholic whether he was right, though, and you’ll hear that it is always the demons inside that drive a man to pick up the demon of drink.
In short, Chavez adduces two arguments: the theological one is that Bush is demented because he is a devil; while the psychological one is that Bush is a devil because he is demented. Bush is a devil in either case.
