The Big Brother Files #28: Acting Like Nothing Serious Happened Since 9-11

Hello everyone

Once again there is some pretty powerful stuff below demanding your attention and consideration. In the face of the continuing charade of the so-called War on Terror played on us, one wonders what it will take to dismantle the monstruous lie and make people finally wake up to the fact that the US government is headed toward tyranny...

And you, what do you think of this?

"It is no longer a question of "What happens if we destroy the Earth?" It is a question of, "We are destroying the Earth -- how can we stop?" (...) It is a shame that most wait until their death to
review their lives, to explore the ramifications of their actions. If our individual dark deeds could be brought to light and realized within ourselves for our own knowledge, if we could learn from our mistakes, then we would be on a path towards enlightenment and creation, instead of a path towards darkness and destruction."

- Ariel Gross <agross@webfootgames.com> in a personal reply to someone involved in trying to stop the U.S. military from destroying the environment for the purpose of military exercises.

"The events of Sept. 11 fit perfectly in the concept of the armaments industry, the intelligence agencies, the whole military-industrial-academic complex. This is in fact conspicuous."

Dear list members,

The hereon following interview with a former German Minister of Defence, Von Buelow, is very interesting and important, I think, for what he says about "wrong" U.S. policies and actions and about the unanswered questions surrounding the September 11 attacks.

The interview was published in the German daily newspaper Tagesspiegel on January 13. It was forwarded to me by the Schiller Institute in Stockholm, which publishes the Executive Intelligence Review of 2004 presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche (EAP/Schillerinstitutet - si@nysol.se). It is considered not politically correct in the U.S. and Europe to be openly associated with LaRouche, yet I have not seen anything derogatory written about the Executive Intelligence Review, which carries first class, well researched articles on current affairs.

In friendship,

INTERVIEW WITH Andreas Von Buelow

VON BULOW INTERVIEW - A criticism of authorized King George W version of September 11 story

Source: Tagesspiegel, Jan. 12 - PARTIAL TRANSLATION below

The following interview by Stephan Lebert / Norbert Thomma with Andreas Von Bulow appeared in the German newspaper Tagesspiegel, on Jan. 13, 2002

Q: You seem so angry, really upset.

Von Buelow: I can explain what's bothering me: I see that after the horrifying attacks of Sept. 11, all political public opinion is being forced into a direction that I consider wrong.

Q: What do you mean by that?

Von Buelow: I wonder why many questions are not asked. Normally, with such a terrible thing, various leads and tracks appear that are then commented on, by the investigators, the media, the government: Is there something here or not? Are the explanations plausible? This time, this is not the case at all. It already began just hours after the attacks in New York and Washington and--

Q: In those hours, there was horror, and grief.

Von Buelow: Right, but actually it was astounding: There are 26 intelligence services in the U.S.A. with a budget of $30 billion--

Q: More than the German defense budget.

Von Buelow: --which were not able to prevent the attacks. In fact, they didn't even have an inkling they would happen. For 60 decisive minutes, the military and intelligence agencies let the fighter planes stay on the ground, 48 hours later, however, the FBI presented a list of suicide attackers. Within ten days, it emerged that seven of them were still alive.

Q: What, please?

Von Buelow: Yes, yes. And why did the FBI chief take no position regarding contradictions? Where the list came from, why it was false? If I were the chief investigator (state attorney) in such a case, I would regularly go to the public, and give information on which leads are valid and which not.

Q: The U.S. government talked about an emergency situation after the attacks: They said they were in a war. Is it not understandable that one does not tell the enemy everything one knows about him?

Von Buelow: Naturally. But a government which goes to war, must first establish who the attacker, the enemy, is. It has a duty to provide evidence. According to its own admission, it has not been able to present any evidence that would hold up in court.

Q: Some information on the perpetrators has been proven with documents. The suspected leader, Mohammad Atta, left Portland for Boston on the morning of Sept. 11, in order to board the plane that later hit the World Trade Center.

Von Buelow: If this Atta was the decisive man in the operation, it's really strange that he took such a risk of taking a plane that would reach Boston such a short time before the connecting flight. Had his flight been a few minutes late, he would not have been in the plane that was hijacked. Why should a sophisticated terrorist do this? One can, by the way, read on CNN (Internet) that none of these names were on the official passenger lists. None of them had gone through the check-in procedures. And why did none of the threatened pilots give the agreed-upon code 7700 over the [Steuerknueppel: STEERING NOB?] to the ground station? In addition: The black boxes which are fire and shock proof, as well as the voice recordings, contain no valuable data--

Q: That sounds like--

Von Buelow: --like assailants who, in their preparations, leave tracks behind them like a herd of stampeding elephants? They made payments with credit cards with their own names; they reported to their flight instructors with their own names. They left behind rented cars with flight manuals in Arabic for jumbo jets. They took with them, on their suicide trip, wills and farewell letters, which fall into the hands of the FBI, because they were stored in the wrong place and wrongly addressed. Clues were left behind like in a child's game of hide-and-seek, which were to be followed! There is also the theory of one British flight engineer: According to this, the steering of the planes was perhaps taken out of the pilots' hands, from outside. The Americans had developed a method in the 1970s, whereby they could rescue hijacked planes by intervening into the computer piloting [automatic pilot system]. This theory says, this technique was abused in this case. That's a theory....

Q: Which sounds really adventurous, and was never considered.

Von Buelow: You see! I do not accept this theory, but I find it worth considering. And what about the obscure stock transactions? In the week prior to the attacks, the amount of transactions in stocks in American Airlines, United Airlines, and insurance companies, increased 1,200%. It was for a value of $15 billion. Some people must have known something. Who?

Q: Why don't you speculate on who it might have been.

Von Buelow: With the help of the horrifying attacks, the Western mass democracies were subjected to brainwashing. The enemy image of anti-communism doesn't work any more; it is to be replaced by peoples of Islamic belief. They are accused of having given birth to suicidal terrorism.

Q: Brainwashing? That's a tough term.

Von Buelow: Yes? But the idea of the enemy image doesn't come from me. It comes from Zbigniew Brzezinski and Samuel Huntington, two policy-makers of American intelligence and foreign policy. Already in the middle of he 1990s, Huntingon believed, people in Europe and the U.S. needed someone they could hate--this would strengthen their identification with their own society. And Brzezinski, the mad dog, as adviser to President Jimmy Carter, campaigned for the exclusive right of the U.S. to seize all the raw materials of the world, especially oil and gas.

Q: You mean, the events of Sept. 11--

Von Buelow: --fit perfectly in the concept of the armaments industry, the intelligence agencies, the whole military-industrial-academic complex. This is in fact conspicuous. The huge raw materials reserves of the former Soviet Union are now at their disposal, also the pipeline routes and--

Q: Erich Follach described that at length in {Spiegel}: "It's a matter of military bases, drugs, oil and gas reserves.''...

Von Buelow: I can state: the planning of the attacks was technically and organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four huge airplanes within a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into their targets, with complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable, without years-long support from secret apparatuses of the state and industry.

Q: You are a conspiracy theorist!

Von Buelow: Yeah, yeah. That's the ridicule heaped [on those raising these questions] by those who would prefer to follow the official, politically correct line. Even investigative journalists are fed propaganda and disinformation. Anyone who doubts that, doesn't have all his marbles! That is your accusation.

Q: Your career actually speaks against the idea that you are not in your right mind. You were already in the 1970s, state secretary in the Defense Ministry; in 1993 you were the SPD [Social Democratic Party] speaker in the Schalk-Golodkowski investigation committee--

Von Buelow: And it all began there! Until that time, I did not have any great knowledge of the work of intelligence agencies. And now we had to take note of a great discrepancy: We shed light on the dealings of the Stasi and other East bloc intelligence agencies in the field of economic criminality, but as soon as we wanted to know something about the activities of the BND [German intelligence] or the CIA, it was mercilessly blocked. No information, no cooperation, nothing! That's when I was first taken aback.

Q: Schalck-Golodkowski mediated, among other things, various business deals abroad. When you looked at his case more closely--

Von Buelow: We found, for example, a clue in Rostock, where Schalck organized his weapons depot. Well, then we happened upon an affiliation of Schalck in Panama, and then we happened upon Manuel Noriega, who was for many years President, drug dealer, and money launderer, all in one, right? And this Noriega was also on the payroll of the CIA, for $200,000 a year. These were things that really made me curious.

Q: You wrote a book on the dealings of the CIA and Co. In the meantime, you have become an expert regarding the strange things related to intelligence services' work.

Von Buelow: "Strange things" is the wrong term. What has gone on, and goes on, in the name of intelligence services, are true crimes.

Q: What would you say determines the work of intelligence services?

Von Buelow: So that we don't have any misunderstandings: I find that it makes sense to have intelligence services....

Q: You don't think much of the earlier proposals by the Greens, who wanted to dismantle these agencies?

Von Buelow: No. It is right to take a look behind the scenes. Getting intelligence about the intentions of an enemy, makes sense. It is important when one tries to put oneself into the mind of the enemy. Whoever wants to understand the CIA's methods, has to deal with its main tasks, {covert operations}: below the level of war, and outside international law, foreign states are to be influenced, by organizing insurrections, terrorist attacks, usually combined with drugs and weapons trade, and money laundering. This is essentially very simple: One arms violent people with weapons. Since, however, it must not under any circumstances come out, that there is an intelligence agency behind it, all traces are erased, with tremendous deployment of resources. I have the impression that this kind of intelligence agency spends 90% of its time this way: creating false leads. So that, if anyone suspects the collaboration of the agencies, he is accused of the sickness of conspiracy madness. The truth often comes out only years later. CIA chief Allen Dulles once said: In case of doubt, I would even lie to the Congress!

Q: The American journalist Seymour M. Hersh, wrote in the {New Yorker,} that even some people in the CIA and government assumed, that certain leads had been laid in order to confuse the investigators. Who, Herr Von Buelow, would have done this?

Von Buelow: I don't know that either. How should I? I simply use my common sense, and--See: The terrorists behaved in such a way to attract attention. And as practicing Muslims, they were in a strip-tease bar, and, drunken, stuck dollar bills into the panty of the dancer.

Q: Things like that also happen.

Von Buelow: It may be. As a lone fighter, I cannot prove anything, that's beyond my capabilities. I have real difficulties, however, to imagine that all this all sprung out of the mind of an evil man in his cave.

Q: Mr.

Von Buelow, you yourself say that you are alone in your criticism. Formerly, you were part of the political establishment, now you are an outsider.

Von Buelow: That is a problem sometimes, but one gets used to it. By the way, I know a lot of people, including very influential ones, who agree with me, but only in whispers, never publicly.

Q: Do you still have contact with old SPD companions, such as Egon Bahr and former Chancellor Helmut Schmidt?

Von Buelow: There are no close contacts any more. I wanted to go to the last SPD party congress, but I was sick.

Q: Can it be, Mr. Von Buelow, that you are a mouthpiece for typical anti-Americanism?

Von Buelow: Nonsense, this has absolutely nothing to do with anti-Americanism. I am a great admirer of this great, open, free society, and always have been. I studied in the U.S.

Q: How did you get the idea that there could be a link between the attacks and the American intelligence agencies?

Von Buelow: Do you remember the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993?

Q: Six people were killed and over a thousand wounded, by a bomb explosion.

Von Buelow: In the middle was the bombmaker, a former Egyptian officer. He had pulled together some Muslims for the attack. They were snuck into the country by the CIA, despite a State Department ban on their entry. At the same time, the leader of the band was an FBI informant. And he made a deal with the authorities: At the last minute, the dangerous explosive material would be replaced by a harmless powder. The FBI did not stick to the deal. The bomb exploded, so to speak, with the knowledge of the FBI. The official story of the crime was quickly found: The criminals were evil Muslims.

Q: At the time Soviet soldiers marched into Afghanistan, you were in the cabinet of Helmut Schmidt. What was it like?

Von Buelow: The Americans pushed for trade sanctions, they demanded the boycott of the Olympic games in Moscow....

Q.... which the German government followed...

Von Buelow: And today we know: It was the strategy of the American security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, to destabilize the Soviet Union from neighboring Muslim countries: They lured the Russians into Afghanistan, and then prepared for them a hell on earth, their Vietnam. With decisive support of the U.S. intelligence agencies, at least 30,000 Muslim fighters were trained in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a bunch of good-for-nothings and fanatics who were, and still are today, ready for anything. And one of them is Osama bin Laden. I wrote years ago: "It was out of this brood, that the Taliban grew up in Afghanistan, who had been brought up in the Koran schools financed by American and Saudi funds, the Taliban who are now terrorizing the country and destroying it.

Q: Even though you say, for the U.S. it was a matter of raw materials in the region, the starting point for the U.S. aggression, was the terrorist attack which cost thousands of human lives.

Von Buelow: Completely true. One must always keep this gruesome act in mind. Nonetheless, in the analysis of political processes, I am allowed to look and see who has advantages and disadvantages, and what is coincidental. When in doubt, it is always worthwhile to take a look at a map, where are raw materials resources, and the routes to them? Then lay a map of civil wars and conflicts on top of that--they coincide. The same is the case with the third map: nodal points of the drug trade. Where this all comes together, the American intelligence services are not far away. By the way, the Bush family is linked to oil, gas, and weapons trade, through the bin Laden family.

Q: What do you think of the Bin Laden films?

Von Buelow: When one is dealing with intelligence services, one can imagine manipulations of the highest quality. Hollywood could provide these techniques. I consider the videos inappropriate as evidence.

Q: You believe the CIA is capable of anything, [wouldn't stop at anything].

Von Buelow: The CIA, in the state interests of the U.S., does not have to abide by any law in interventions abroad, is not bound by international law; only the President gives orders. And when funds are cut, peace is on the horizon, then a bomb explodes somewhere. Thus it is proven, that you can't do without the intelligence services; and that the critics are {nuts,} as Father Bush called them, Bush who was once CIA head and President. You have to see that the U.S. spends $30 billion on intelligence services, and $13 billion on anti-drug work. And what comes out of it? The chief of a special unit of the strategic anti-drug work declared, in despair, after 30 years of service, that in every big, important drug case, the CIA came in and took it out of my hands.

Q: Do you criticize the German government for its reaction after Sept. 11?

Von Buelow: No. To assume that the government were independent in these questions, would be naive.

Q: Herr Von Buelow, what will you do now?

Von Buelow: Nothing. My task is concluded by saying, it could not have been that way [according to the official story]. Search for the truth!

Bill to Reinstate Draft is Before Congress
by Editor, Maine Commons
Jan 19 '02

Bill introduced that would reinstate draft in the US and US territories.

In an act virtually ignored by the mainstream media, Republicans Nick Smith of Michigan and Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania have introduced a bill intending to reinstate the draft. The bill, HR 3598, the Universal Military Training and Service Act of 2001, was introduced on December 20th. As of January 19th, it appears that the only media sources to report on this have been Independent Media Centers, the anarchist site Infoshop, the Hawaiian newspaper, Ka Leo O and the technology and culture website kuro5hin.

HR 3598 is currently before the House Committee of Armed Services. The Chair of the Armed Services Committee is Rep. Bob Stump, R-AZ, and the ranking member is Ike Skelton, D-MO. This bill would require that men in the US (including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Guam -- all territories whose residents do not have voting rights) receive basic military training and education as members of the armed services for a period of not less than six months, but not more than one year, unless exempted. Currently the United States Census lists 9 million males in this age group. The bill would also authorize women in that age group to volunteer to receive basic military training and education.

Young men would be exempt from this service if they have extreme hardships (what exactly this means is not outlined in the bill and is likely defined at the convenience of the board) or physical or mental disability. People already serving in military positions would not be subject to the specifications of this induction. High school students would have their induction postponed until they receive their high school diploma, drop out, are expelled, or turn 20, whichever occurs first.

Men who are conscientious objectors, which requires that they have religious training and belief that prohibits them from military combat (subject to approval by a local board), when inducted, would participate in basic military training and education that does not include any combatant training component. Those whose conscientious objector claims are rejected by a local board would be allowed an appeal to an appeal board.

For the full text of this bill, please visit http://thomas.loc.gov and search for HR3598. In response to expectations that a draft could be enacted, Maine Draft and Military Counselors has set up a website at www.abilitymaine.org to provide information about conscientious objection, the draft, and other military service issues.

Pentagon investigates smells that repel
Jan 8, 2002

PHILADELPHIA - The U.S. military is sniffing out the worst possible odours to create a universally offensive stink bomb to help clear crowds. The non-lethal "odour bomb" is said to smell like rotting garbage, human waste and burning hair, which produce a negative reaction in all cultures.

Researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia reported their odour weapon in the Jan. 7 issue of Chemical & Engineering News. Tests show the odours "are potent in making people want to flee in disgust," and can cause shallow breathing, increased heart rate and lead to nausea.

The idea is to gas dissidents and rioters with a mix of smells so repellant that they would be forced to flee an area before injuries or deaths could occur. Scientists say they are still trying to work out some bugs, such as how to contain the odours before they are released.

Biological odours were most likely to be recognized. About 50 chemists probed other unpleasant human smells such as underarm odour, bad breath and human pheremones.

The United States Is In Deep Doodoo!

From the United States Congressional Record - March 17, 1993 - Vol. #33, page H-1303 -
Speaker - Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:

"Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner's report that will lead to our demise." CLIP

There has been some shuffling around to try to conceal the real scope of the problem. Over the last several years, the Federal Government has been sending less tax money back to the states than it takes in in taxes. This means that the states have to borrow MORE money to cover their obligations. The net result is that the debt is being transferred to the states, to conceal its true size. The government will easily admit to a $3 trillion "publicly held" debt, grudgingly concede that it's "unfunded liability" brings that number to almost $7 trillion, but the real hard truth is that total government debt, state and federal, is now over $14 trillion dollars, or about 50,000 for every man, woman, and child inside the United States. Since 1960, the taxpayers have shelled out $15 trillion in interest payments alone, while the principal continues to rise.

Subject: Drugs and Medical Errors Killing 1 of Every 5 Australians

Dear Jean,

Again, thanks so much for your well balanced mail-outs... you are being of service to humanity in more ways than you may know.

I have prepared a short email below that I would like you to share with your readers. But more than that I would ask that they reply with constructive suggestions how this appalling situation may be rectified. For example, I just received an excellent email from a friend who is in the aviation industry. He likens the risks in the aviation industry with those of the medical profession and how they have reduced their risks to almost zero by identifying hazards and putting in place multiple safety nets to reduce the risk to an acceptable level. He is suggesting the medical profession work along similar lines.

Best regards... Trevor Osborne
CEO, World Harmony Foundation


The world was horrified by the events of 9/11 when nearly 3000 innocent people were killed, and rightly so. However, these figures pale in deference to the millions, yes millions, of people killed directly and indirectly by western medicine, yet hardly a word has been uttered by our so-called watch-dog free press, why?

The following statement came from an emailed response to the British Medical Journal (BMJ), by Ron Law, Executive Director of the NNFA, in New Zealand and member of the New Zealand Ministry of Health Working Group that refers to Australian statistics:

"If deaths from properly researched, properly registered, properly prescribed and properly used drugs were added along with preventable deaths due to private practice it comes to a staggering 19%, which is almost 1 of every 5 deaths."

Full details can be found in the following webpage: http://www.mercola.com/2000/dec/10/medical_error.htm

This is just one of many such reports from other western countries. For more details visit the following sites:

This is indeed a most important and totally disregarded issue. I'd say staying healthy as much as possible through a proper organic diet, enough exercise, a healthy lifestyle and using other forms of alternative medicines when necessary would seem like the natural solution. As for the allopathic medicine, use it with great caution only!

This was forwarded to me yesterday. It is interesting for those who have done the research and advanced their understanding of what is happening in our country. Those who have are constantly frustrated by those who can't seem to see obvious truth about these matters.

The author explained to me that a close family member seemed to absorb his journalistic efforts when the topic was Clinton but doesn't see the same things going on with Bush. That inspired him to write this article.

His concept seems right to me. I hope you will give it some thought.

Slavery and the eight veils

Over the last several years I have evolved and discarded several theories in an attempt to explain why it is that most people cannot see truth -- even when it smacks them in the face. Those of us who can see "the conspiracy" have participated in countless conversations amongst ourselves that address the frustration of most peoples' inability to comprehend the extremely well-documented arguments which we use to describe the process of our collective enslavement and exploitation. The most common explanation to be arrived at is that most people just "don't want to see" what is really going on.

Extremely evil men and women who make up the world's power-elite have cleverly cultivated a virtual pasture so grass green that few people seldom, if ever, bother to look up from where they are grazing long enough to notice the brightly colored tags stapled to their ears.

The same people who cannot see their enslavement for the pasture grass have a tendency to view as insane "conspiracy theorists" those of us who can see the past the farm and into the parlor of his feudal lordship's castle.

Finally, I understand why.

It's not that those who don't see that their freedom is vanishing under the leadership of the power-elite "don't want to see it" -- they simply can't see what is happening to them because of the unpierced veils that block their view.
