11/18/2002 Entry: "NSA BACKDOOR IN EVERY MICROSOFT OPERATING SYSTEM"
How NSA access was built into Windows
Careless mistake reveals subversion of Windows by NSA.
A CARELESS mistake by Microsoft programmers has revealed that special access codes prepared by the US National Security Agency have been secretly built into Windows. The NSA access system is built into every version of the Windows operating system now in use, except early releases of Windows 95 (and its predecessors). The discovery comes close on the heels of the revelations earlier this year that another US software giant, Lotus, had built an NSA "help information"
trapdoor into its Notes system, and that security functions on other software systems had been deliberately crippled.
The first discovery of the new NSA access system was made two years ago by British researcher Dr Nicko van Someren. But it was only a few weeks ago when a second researcher rediscovered the access system. With it, he found the evidence linking it to NSA.
Computer security specialists have been aware for two years that unusual features are contained inside a standard Windows software "driver" used for security and encryption functions. The driver, called ADVAPI.DLL, enables and controls a range of security functions. If you use Windows, you will find it in the C:\Windows\system directory of your computer.
ADVAPI.DLL works closely with Microsoft Internet Explorer, but will only run crypographic functions that the US governments allows Microsoft to export. That information is bad enough news, from a European point of view. Now, it turns out that ADVAPI will run special programmes inserted and controlled by NSA. As yet, no-one knows what these programmes are, or what they do.
Dr Nicko van Someren reported at last year's Crypto 98 conference that he had disassembled the ADVADPI driver. He found it contained two different keys. One was used by Microsoft to control the cryptographic functions enabled in Windows, in compliance with US export regulations. But the reason for building in a second key, or who owned it, remained a mystery.
A second key
Two weeks ago, a US security company came up with conclusive evidence that the second key belongs to NSA. Like Dr van Someren, Andrew Fernandez, chief scientist with Cryptonym of Morrisville, North Carolina, had been probing the presence and significance of the two keys. Then he checked the latest Service Pack release for Windows NT4,
Service Pack 5. He found that Microsoft's developers had failed to remove or "strip" the debugging symbols used to test this software before they released it. Inside the code were the labels for the two keys. One was called "KEY". The other was called "NSAKEY".
Fernandes reported his re-discovery of the two CAPI keys, and their secret meaning, to "Advances in Cryptology, Crypto'99" conference held in Santa Barbara. According to those present at the conference, Windows developers attending the conference did not deny that the "NSA" key was built into their software. But they refused to talk about what the key did, or why it had been put there without users' knowledge.
A third key?!
But according to two witnesses attending the conference, even Microsoft's top crypto programmers were astonished to learn that the version of ADVAPI.DLL shipping with Windows 2000 contains not two, but three keys. Brian LaMachia, head of CAPI development at Microsoft was "stunned" to learn of these discoveries, by outsiders. The latest discovery by Dr van Someren is based on advanced search methods which test and report on the "entropy" of programming code.
Within the Microsoft organisation, access to Windows source code is said to be highly compartmentalized, making it easy for modifications to be inserted without the knowledge of even the respective product managers.
Researchers are divided about whether the NSA key could be intended to let US government users of Windows run classified cryptosystems on their machines or whether it is intended to open up anyone's and everyone's Windows computer to intelligence gathering techniques deployed by NSA's burgeoning corps of "information warriors".
According to Fernandez of Cryptonym, the result of having the secret key inside your Windows operating system "is that it is tremendously easier for the NSA to load unauthorized security services on all copies of Microsoft Windows, and once these security services are loaded, they can effectively compromise your entire operating system". The NSA key is contained inside all versions of Windows from Windows 95 OSR2 onwards.
"For non-American IT managers relying on Windows NT to operate highly secure data centres, this find is worrying", he added. "The US government is currently making it as difficult as possible for "strong" crypto to be used outside of the US. That they have also installed a cryptographic back-door in the world's most abundant operating system should send a strong message to foreign IT managers".
"How is an IT manager to feel when they learn that in every copy of Windows sold, Microsoft has a 'back door' for NSA - making it orders of magnitude easier for the US government to access your computer?" he asked.
Can the loophole be turned round against the snoopers?
Dr van Someren feels that the primary purpose of the NSA key inside Windows may be for legitimate US government use. But he says that there cannot be a legitimate explanation for the third key in Windows 2000 CAPI. "It looks more fishy", he said.
Fernandez believes that NSA's built-in loophole can be turned round against the snoopers. The NSA key inside CAPI can be replaced by your own key, and used to sign cryptographic security modules from overseas or unauthorised third parties, unapproved by Microsoft or the NSA. This is exactly what the US government has been trying to prevent. A demonstration "how to do it" program that replaces the NSA key can be found on Cryptonym's
According to one leading US cryptographer, the IT world should be thankful that the subversion of Windows by NSA has come to light before the arrival of CPUs that handles encrypted instruction sets. These would make the type of discoveries made this month impossible. "Had the next-generation CPU's with encrypted instruction sets already been deployed, we would have never found out about NSAKEY."

Once again its true. I typed the address for the house I was getting built a few years back (I kept on forgetting it) on a notepad file. Makes it easy to remember stuff. I ended up having to pay an extra couple of weeks rent in the house I was staying because the file with the adress went missing and when it came time to move in, the file was gone. My memory isn't so good these days, and I couldn't remember it, and I was too proud to ask the builder where it was (he might have been in on it) so more rent got paid while I waited for the new phone book to come out, and I finally found my address. Robert Duck. I think my old land-lord might work for microsoft, and he could have deleted my files to make me forget why I was paying rent, but I had a feeling something was up.

i run XP and the file is in the system32 folder and named advapi32.dll. after getting rid of the file putting it onto a removable hardrive, removing it, restarting, and checking, a NEW copy of the same file was in the same place. i then went to paste the original back into the directory and got the popup window about the different versions of the same file with both files having different dates. you can't just delete the file, you have to replace it with another file by the same name, preferable with the nsa key removed(if possible).

Apparently Cryptonym is no longer in business, their homepage is "intentionally left blank". It looks like you are right, though that this issue is several years old. I found this article from nsclean that explains in a lot more detail:
Apparently they think the second key was not for the government, but for international banking and, sadly, just named wrong. According to them if you have IECLEAN and turn off java, activ-x, etc your system cannot be compromised, unless after you are notified, you give approval for it to be. Same with netscape.
I wonder how this affects aol browser.

If you use Internet Explorer, a web page can be coded to display the contents of your hard drive - A website on Angelfire showed how this worked, but the IP took it down.
The solution would be to encrypt drive C, so files can't be opened without a password.
Internet Explorer is simply unsecure, and probably will remain that way indefinitely. The security patches are made long after the defects have been exploited and publicized.

Recently, Microsoft announced they will be working with the new Homeland Security Dept. The guy that's heading the dept. for MS is ex-military. He was on cable last week talking about it but was very elusive on answering what MS gets out of it (ie. money). Does anyone think that the current administration let them out of the anti-trust case (which was won by the government) in return for MS building future codes into their software?

Comments on the "NSA" key in Microsoft CryptoAPI

Reply: Bruce Schneier: "Re: Comments on the "NSA" key in Microsoft CryptoAPI"
This is a response
A few months ago in my newsletter Crypto-Gram, I talked about Microsoft's
system for digitally signing cryptography suits that go into its operating
system. The point is that only approved crypto suites can be used, which
makes thing like export control easier. Annoying as it is, this is the
Microsoft has two keys, a primary and a spare. The Crypto-Gram article
talked about attacks based on the fact that a crypto suite is considered
signed if it is signed by EITHER key, and that there is no mechanism for
transitioning from the primary key to the backup. It's stupid
cryptography, but the sort of thing you'd expect out of Microsoft.
Suddenly there's a flurry of press activity because someone notices that
the second key is called "NSAKEY" in the code. Ah ha! The NSA can sign
crypto suites. They can use this ability to drop a Trojaned crypto suite
into your computers. Or so the conspiracy theory goes.
I don't buy it.
First, if the NSA wanted to compromise Microsoft's Crypto API, it would be
much easier to either 1) convince MS to tell them the secret key for MS's
signature key, 2) get MS to sign an NSA-compromised module, 3) install a
module other than Crypto API to break the encryption (no other modules need
signatures). It's always easier to break good encryption.
Second, NSA doesn't need a key to compromise security in Windows. Programs
like Back Orifice can do it without any keys. Attacking the Crypto API
still requires that the victim run an executable (even a Word macro) on his
computer. If you can convince a victim to run an untrusted macro, there
are a zillion smarter ways to compromise security.
Third, why in the world would anyone call a secret NSA key "NSAKEY." Lots
of people have access to source code within Microsoft; a conspiracy like
this would only be known by a few people. Anyone with a debugger could
have found this "NSAKEY." If this is a covert mechanism, it's not very covert.
I see two possibilities. One, that the backup key is just as Microsoft
says, a backup key. It's called "NSAKEY" for some dumb reason, and that's
Two, that it is actually an NSA key. If the NSA is going to use Microsoft
products for classified traffic, they're going to install their own
cryptography. They're not going to want to show it to anyone, not even
Microsoft. They are going to want to sign their own modules. So the
backup key could also be an NSA internal key, so that they could install
strong cryptography on Microsoft products for their own internal use.
But it's not an NSA key so they can secretly install weak cryptography on
the unsuspecting masses. There are just too many smarter things they can
do to the unsuspecting masses.
The following is from the April Crypto-Gram,
Attacking Certificates with Computer Viruses
How do you know an e-mail is authentic? You verify the digital signature,
of course. This means that you verify that the message was correctly
signed, using the sender's public key. How do you know that the sender's
(call her Alice) public key is valid? You check the signature on *that*
What you're checking is called a certificate. Someone else, call him Bob,
signs Alice's public key and confirms that it is valid. So you verify Bob's
signature on Alice's certificate, so you can verify Alice's signature on
Okay, how do you know that Bob's signature is valid? Maybe Carol signs her
key (creating another certificate). That doesn't actually solve the
problem; it just moves it up another layer. Or maybe you signed Bob's key,
so you know to trust him. Or maybe someone else whose key you signed has
signed Carol's key. In the end, you have to trust someone.
This notion of a certificate chain is one of the biggest problems with
public-key cryptography, and one that isn't talked about very much. PGP
uses the notion of "trusted introducers"; Bob signs Alice's key because Bob
knows Alice and is her friend. You signed Bob's key for the same reason. So
when Alice sends you an e-mail you can note that her public key is signed
by Bob, and you trust Bob to introduce you to people. (Much like Bob
bringing Alice along to your party.)
Other Internet protocols -- S/MIME, SSL, etc. -- take a more hierarchical
approach. You probably got your public key signed by a company like
Verisign. A Web site's SSL public key might have been signed by Netscape.
Microsoft signs public keys used to sign pieces of ActiveX code you might
download from the net.
These so-called "root-level certificates" come hard-wired into your
browser. So when you try to establish an SSL connection with some Web site,
that Web site sends you its public-key certificate. You check to see if
that certificate is signed (using the public key in your browser); if it
is, you're happy. The you-have-to-trust-someone public keys are the ones
that come with your software. You trust them implicitly, with no outside
So if you're a paranoid computer-security professional, the obvious
question to ask is: can a rogue piece of software replace the root-level
certificates in my browser and trick me into trusting someone? Of course it
It's even weirder than that. Researchers Adi Shamir and Nico van Someren
looked at writing programs that automatically search for public-key
certificates and replace them with phony ones. It turns out that the
randomness characteristics of a public key make them stick out like sore
thumbs, so they're easy to find.
This attack isn't without problems. If a virus replaces the root Netscape
certificate with a phony one, it can trick you into believing a fake
certificate is valid. But that replacement certificate can't verify any
real certificates, so you'll also believe that every real certificate is
invalid. (Hopefully, you'll notice this.) But it works well with
Microsoft's Authenticode. Microsoft had the foresight to include two
root-level Authenticode certificates, presumably for if one ever gets
compromised. But the software is designed to authenticate code if even one
checks out. So a virus can replace the Authenticode spare certificate. Now
rogue software signed with this rogue certificate verifies as valid, and
real software signed by valid Microsoft-approved companies still checks out
This virus doesn't exist yet, but it could be written.
An okay story on the topic:

I was banned today from all MSNBC chat servers for supposedly violating there conduct codes.
I am unable to access there site, must be blocking the ip I am coming from.
I merely logged on at approximatley 10:00am, under the ever so approriate name of Prometheus, to the MSNBC chat live with the news, where I was only allowed enough time to get out the following before being completely banned:
(i wrote) "How NSA access was built into Windows"
(this is merely a copy and paste of the article title, sorry vox about just copying)
(i wrote again) "How NSA access was built into Windows"
(I then waited for 30 or so seconds to see if anyone was willing to let me tell them, and noticed the usual Pro-Jewish, anti-Peace, war propaganda, I guess people are more worried about killing then realizing Bill Gates is helping the governemnt keep information on you, everyone should do some research on the "Stazi" and take a long hard look at what our government is doing)
(i wrote) there is a backdoor in your windows program...
And then a little windows erroe message popped up and I was told that: You have been dropped by Mark(?)
I then tried to log back on, because, hey, the 80% of culture that never reach philisophical reason and only do as there told on the jewish-zionist run media tells them, they need help too, and since I made it out of the WASP matrix and brainwashing I figure that I should help those stuck back in the bullshit sexually perverse marketing scheme of television, and I decided to log back on, even just using my name, because I believe in what I preach, and sure enough an error message pops up letting me now that I can try loggin back on in a month or so because I have been banned from all msnbc stuff for violating the code of conduct.
I relize we can all believe this, so I don't have to ask everyone.
I really feel it's time to start putting a stop to all of this constant molesting of good and decent people who have no idea who they are let alone what is going on in the world around them.
Was I the only one who had Sociology class in high school?
Was I the only one who learned about subliminal messages, propaganda, how the history books in the us are bullshit, the definition of what "Ethnocentricity" is and why antropologists stopped taking the dirty savage look on societyis that were not exactly like there, am I the only one who knows that reality is perception and the wolfs have gotten in the gate and are casting illusions on everyone?
Is there anyone else out there who really what to make a pro active differece?
They have also shut off my ability to send email out.

What better way for a government to keep track of people? Get something incorperated into the operating system that runs on about 90% of the computers in the whole freaking world, then "give it away" with the purchase of a new computer. Trust me, just about every American citizen appears on a "list" somewhere. Something you did at some point in your life got the attention of some agency (got arrested, detained at the airport, sent/received mail from a former communist country, have friends who have done any of the above, have relatives in another country, think about it...). Don't sweat it. Unless you continue to show up on their radar, the Dream Police are not going to show up at your door...

perpetrate those hanious crimes against the American
Public, and who have so far, escaped incarceration as
multi-millionaire corporate successes.
Again, none of any words world wide bare contention
against the facts we've brought to our attention. The
traitors to America, Our Mr. bush Jr. and rotten
rumsfeld don't mention the willingness of American
Soldiers to apprehend general Ahmad as the principle
terrorist funder of Atta, because this general is also
responsible for developing the bushmob strategy of
killing Americans in New York City from Washington. A
strategy of blaming bin Laden without any evidence to
bomb Afghanistan for Enron. (The Dahbol Working Group.)
Then closing criminal investigations, as it's not
important to know who personally was responsible for the
insider trades, or the contacting of only Odigo. Never
mentioned by CNN as top priority to American soldier
concerns, who are expected by Blitzer and Hemmer to
throw away their lives in sacrifice unthinking to bush,
america's false deity, super evil anti-Christ. While
bush and cheney threaten to murder more dumb Americans
who would dare to articulate the demand for Justice as
our own, like Laden has, while demanding American
Patriots cower in fear of the sadistic savage mass
murdering death squad leader, tommy franks, or the
anti-Christ going out to kill their family too as not
represented by corporate policy, while American soldier
families are continually disrespected as unworthy.
(Generally, they are pretty damn stoopid, but certainly,
if they're not knowingly committing first degree murders
for the anti-Christ as pure nazi filth, they should be
allowed to learn, instead of having their own undefended
families robbed then slaughtered for American traitor,
nazi puke terrorist, tommy franks, or for Monsanto's
rotten rumsfeld. Do you notice corporate America
continues to show outdated footage of those two demons
standing near smiling armed American soldiers, who as a
mass of dumfuks, aren't intelligent enough to destroy
them instantly as established ememies of America as
terrorists? Well, that is going to change. I have yet
to find ANY American Soldier who is literate, who
disagrees WE have some very important questions that
need immediate answers before the bushmob murders more
Americans in Our name. See for yourself through Google
if you don't believe in Christ as the Redeemer.
As for the doubting American Soldier, LOOK, CNN will
continue as cult members in their dying madness of just
even lamer excuses, to convince US, we are alone in our
concerns for Freedom as Justice instills for US all.
This moment of History requires you to stand strong for
only yourself to be represented truly among the stars.
Evil stupid people can't make heads or tails of this,
but, as evil bush does truly from his dark shallow
existence, will continue by open piracy, to publicly
advocate in Our names the further robbing and murder of
your own family American Patriot, so too, will more
american nazi dumfuks die to the tune of their own
cowardice to protect themselves as garnered fairly.
This is why rotten rumsfeld forbids the death tally of
American soldiers to be made public to the ready for
enlistment as the too dumb to know better. Life is
life, and sorry to say american dumfuks, Christ on the
cross is you too as a true dying American Patriot, and
your already politically sitting in the bush slave whore
position of hatred and injustice against Humanity and
myself honestly as.. THE SON OF MAN! (The for real, no
illusion, god of God's life/death trade barter, with a
score to settle on behalf of the infinite Universe and
True brave Soldiers everywhere. KILL AMERICAN COP
KILLER BUSH NOW BEFORE HE MURDERS MORE LIKE OURSELVES IN
OUR NAME AS THE INNOCENT COWARDS!) THINK, if I fly down
there to Washington as a simple man, and destroy the cop
killing demon monsters bush, rumsfeld, cheney, and
franks with my bare hands in love as the timid Jesus of
folklore, while salivating, how is that going to look to
the perishioners, who, God love'em, just wouldn't
understand the finer art of akeido, huh?
CNN is not interested in working for American interests
by asking why, as there is little of any money in just
doing good for your neighbor, like saving a living, as
we would wish to be helped for ourselves, if we were
bound just the same to be equals at being. Mr. Blitzer
and Bill Hemmer, as americans, wouldn't give a dollar of
your time, to speak on human rights to be of their own
concern, (they're already rich by theft without talent
as dying our death by murder as not spoken for really.
Just like how they refuse to report on the blatant
criminal lottery operations that steal from EVERYONE.)
or to save the life of an innocent poor victim, if it
meant they would therefor, be compelled to honestly
report on their false deity bush, corporate america's
super evil criminal to ourselves as Humanity, the
unelected dictator, American cop killing anti-Christ in
person!, that they so leave to see Americans sacrificed
as ignored to be robbed from, as their profit margin
increases, from their, holyier than thou pulpits,
leaving You all to get robbed and murdered by dumb nazi
scum like reject tommy franks, the terrorizing death
squad leader, woman and child killer. We're sure CNN,
as others would say, as they do regarding sharon's
murder rampages against the innocent as God, nothing.
Do less for America, The dying from stupidity People,
and get payed more in collateral damages paid for by
doubting Patriots, now mostly too slow to stand for the
American flag in protection for their own living as lost
to the wind without freedom to guide their own
convictions. Mr. bush, tommy, rumsfeld, cheney and
blair give no evidence to back an american soldier's
reason, but for to show themselves as the criminals who
openly harbor terrorist activity against our
communities, and WE, as Humanity, according to CNN, are
expected to go out and kill our family and friends in
cowardice, instead of standing up to destroy the evil
demon bush instead, to save our own selves as worth
God, or no God, I hate that murderer bush as much as any
real man would to care for his own life as family.
Title: Material Breach: US Crimes in Iraq
Published on Saturday, November 30, 2002 by CommonDreams.org
Material Breach: US Crimes in Iraq
by Heather Wokusch
D-Day of December 8th quietly approaches - the day Iraq
must provide the UN Security Council with a complete
accounting of its weapons programs, plus its civilian
chemical/biological/nuclear production and research
activities. Even though UN weapons inspectors have
criticized the December 8th deadline as unrealizable,
the consequences for missing it will be catastrophic:
Iraq will be in "material breach" of UN resolution 1441,
and therefore subject to swift and decisive military
But at this point, UN 1441 seems little more than a
whitewash pretext for a US-led attack on Iraq. With US
warplanes patrolling Iraq's no-fly zone, bombing raids
against Iraq ongoing, multiple aircraft carriers on
alert and 60,000 US troops currently in or around the
Persian Gulf, it's clear the war has already begun,
"material breach" or not. When it's convenient for the
Bush administration, Iraq will be found to have violated
some aspect of the UN resolution, and the current
buildup and covert military activity will explode into
an all-out attack.
The justification (that Iraq's Hussein violates
international law with his weapons of mass destruction
and is thus a menace to world peace) seems a bit ironic
in light of US actions in Iraq these past eleven years.
Case in point. Article 54 of the Geneva Conventions
clearly states that destroying or rendering useless
items essential to the survival of civilian populations
is illegal under international law and a war crime.
Hard then to explain the 1991 US bombing of electrical
grids that powered 1,410 water-treatment plants for
Iraq's 22 million people. An excerpt from a 1998 US Air
Force document, entitled "Strategic Attack," chillingly
explains: "The electrical attacks proved extremely
effective ... The loss of electricity shut down the
capital's water treatment plants and led to a public
health crisis from raw sewage dumped in the Tigris
River." A second US Defense Intelligence Agency
document, 1991's "Iraq Water Treatment Vulnerabilities,"
predicted how sanctions would then be used to prevent
Iraq from getting the equipment and chemicals necessary
for water purification, which would result in "a
shortage of pure drinking water for much of the
population" leading to "increased incidences, if not
epidemics, of disease."
So basically, in defiance of international law, the
United States knowingly destroyed Iraq's water supply,
then for the past eleven years has prevented the
contaminated drinking water from being treated, even
though it was obvious those most affected would be
millions of citizens doomed to preventable disease and
death. If that's not a material breach, what is?
Then there's the depleted uranium (DU) weaponry the
United States and its allies used on Iraq during the
Gulf War, despite foreknowledge its radioactivity would
make food and water in the bombed regions unsafe for
consumption on an indefinite basis (DU remains
radioactive for 4.5 billion years). Add in the fact
that trails of carcinogenic dust left in a DU bomb's
wake spread in the wind to be absorbed by plants and
animals, thereby devastating a region's food chain. Of
course, humans inhale and absorb DU dust as well, which
has most likely led not only to dramatically elevated
levels of birth defects and cancer cases among Iraqi
civilians, but also to a wide litany of suffering among
Gulf War vets; a recent study, for example, found that
even nine years after the war, veterans afflicted with
Gulf War Syndrome ailments still had DU traces in their
urine. This while there has yet to be any US
governmental study on the effects of DU inhalation...
We can expect DU to be used in the next attack on Iraq
too, in spite of the inhumane risks to civilians and
military personnel alike. According to a Defense
Department report, "the US Military Services use DU
munitions because of DU's superior lethality" adding,
"Gulf War exposures to depleted uranium (DU) have not to
date produced any observable adverse health effects
attributable to DU's chemical toxicity or low-level
radiation." With more than one out of six American Gulf
War vets having reported health problems since their
service, and over 9,000 having died since the war ended,
not to mention the marked increase in Iraqi birth
defects and cancer cases in DU-bombed regions, denial
like that is nothing short of material breach, an
affront to both human rights and common sense.
And what if the December 8th deadline is met, and no
weapons of mass destruction are found by U.N. weapons
inspectors inside Iraq? Says US Defense Secretary
Donald Rumsfeld: "What it would prove would be that the
inspection process had been successfully defeated by the
Iraqis. There's no question but that the Iraqi regime
is clever, they've spent a lot of time hiding things,
dispersing things, tunneling underground." So it would
appear regardless of how the inspections turn out, the
Iraqis will be attacked anyway.
In facing a no-win situation, Hussein could seem like a
martyr to others in the region; he could also see little
option but to unleash whatever destructive powers he has
left. Backing someone like him into a corner is foreign
policy at its most disastrous, a dangerous development
for the entire region and very bad news for the
unfortunate service men and women thrown into that
It's clear that Saddam Hussein is a loathsome ogre who
has shown criminal disregard for his population. What's
also clear though is that the US record in the region is
disgraceful if not downright criminal. Consider that
for the two years following Hussein's infamous 1988 gas
attack on the Kurds at Halabja (an attack in which
US-built helicopters were apparently among those
dropping the bombs) the US government seemed quite
uninterested in his possession of chemical weapons, or
any other weapons for that matter. Remember too, that a
1992 Senate committee report entitled "US Chemical and
Biological Warfare-Related Dual-Use Exports to Iraq,"
demonstrated that Hussein bought technology and
materials necessary to create nuclear, biological and
chemical weapons from none other than the States and
Britain - and continued to make purchases even after the
attack at Halabja. Factor in the water supply
degradation, DU toxicity and debilitating sanctions and
it's hard to imagine the average Iraqi embracing
American forces as welcome liberators.
The bottom line is that the US has some questions to
answer about its past conduct in Iraq, questions that
can't be answered by another full-scale war.

Title: The journalism and films of John Pilger
For 40 years, Australian governments have colluded with
state terrorism in Indonesia. Now, the Bali outrage
allows John Howard to distract attention from his
hypocrisy : John Pilger :17 Oct 2002
The Australian prime minister, John Howard, says the
atrocity on the island of Bali is "proof" that "the war
against terrorism must go on with unrelenting vigour and
with an unconditional commitment". What he means is
that he will continue to perform his holier-than-Blair
role as George W Bush's most devoted, if not universally
recognised, foreign gang member.
The Australian military is, in effect, an extension of
the Pentagon. Australian ships operate with the
American fleet in the Gulf, enforcing an embargo against
Iraq which, according to the United Nations Children's
Fund, has led to the unnecessary deaths of more than
600,000 Iraqi children. In Indonesia, Australians,
together with their American counterparts, have secretly
resumed training the Indonesian military, which, in the
world cup of terrorism, is the undisputed champion.
Al-Qaeda has been fingered in Washington for the Bali
outrage. The script is unchanged. To Bush, Blair and
Howard, the Bali bombing will be simply further
justification for attacking Iraq.
How truly bizarre the American enterprise of world
conquest has become. First, there was the bombing of
Afghanistan, the equivalent of bombing Sicily in order
to eradicate the Mafia. "Terrorism" is the enemy; or as
Python's Terry Jones remarked, "They're bombing an
abstract noun!" What is clear is that the more bellicose
Bush and Blair and Howard become, the more they place
the citizens of their own countries at risk.
Like a mouse perpetually roaring, Howard's warmongering
has endangered every young Australian backpacking in
those countries where his and Bush's provocations are
welcomed by extreme groups. Since he became prime
minister in 1996, Howard has renewed Australia's
reputation in Asia for European exclusivity.
This is tragic, for it is not long since Australia
emerged from the cultural isolation of its notorious
"white Australia policy" and appeared to express the
confidence of the ethnically diverse society it had
become. Embracing Asia became politically fashionable,
and the old colonial fear of the Asian hordes falling
down on Australia, as by the force of gravity, was
rejected by many Australians, especially the young.
Howard's openly racist policies have again begun to
isolate Australia. He has deployed Australian troops
against helpless, mostly Muslim,asylum-seekers on the
high seas - more than 350 people went to their deaths in
a leaking boat last year even though, as it has now been
revealed, Australian military intelligence knew they
were in great peril. He has imprisoned many of those
who have reached Australia (mostly from Iraq and
Afghanistan, the countries he claims to be "liberating")
in desert concentration camps in conditions which,
reported a United Nations inspector, were among the
worst he had seen in more than 40 inspections around the
Seldom a day passes when Howard and his inept foreign
minister, Alexander Downer, do not utter vacuities about
"the war on terror". The truth is that, for almost 40
years, Australian governments have played a significant
role in colluding with state terrorism in neighbouring
Indonesia. In 1965, the then prime minister Harold Holt
joked about the mass murder that accompanied the seizure
of power by General Suharto, the west's man. "With
500,000 to a million communist sympathisers knocked
off," he said, "I think it's safe to assume a
reorientation has taken place."
During the long years of Suharto's dictatorship, which
was shored up by western capital, governments and the
World Bank, state terrorism on a breathtaking scale was
ignored. Australian prime ministers were far too busy
lauding the "investment partnership" in resource-rich
Indonesia. Suharto's annexation of East Timor, which
cost the lives of a third of the population, was
described by the foreign minister Gareth Evans as
"irreversible". As Evans succinctly put it, there were
"zillions" of dollars to be made from the oil and gas
reserves in the Timor Sea.
Such lethal hypocrisy was acknowledged by Australia's
political and media elite only in the final spasms of
the Suharto dictatorship. In 1998, the World Bank's
"model pupil" finally collapsed beneath the weight of
its corruption after short-term capital fled Indonesia,
leaving 70 million people in abject poverty. Given the
pressures on this sprawling, ethnically complex country,
it is hardly surprising that extreme groups have found
fertile ground, whatever their aims. To lump them in
with the "global terror" of al-Qaeda serves to suppress,
once again, the part that rapacious western interests
Today, largely unreported, the Indonesian military, with
the tacit approval of the United States, Britain and
Australia, is terrorising the populations of Aceh and
West Papua. Most of the "human rights violations" in
these provinces - the euphemism for state terrorism -
have been part and parcel of "protecting" the American
Exxon oil holdings in Aceh as well as the vast Freeport
copper and gold mines and BP holdings in West Papua.
Those who need a link between the march of multinational
capital and state terrorism need look no further.
One of the sacred taboos for western journalists and
broadcasters is the terrorism of their own governments.
Only when they recognise this and its pivotal role in
the fate of much of humanity will they be able to report
honestly the lesser terrorism of non-state groups.
Research by Edward Herman and Gerry O'Sullivan covering
the period since 1965 points to the killing of several
thousand people by non-state terrorists, such as
al-Qaeda, compared with 2.5 million civilians killed by
state-sponsored terrorism. These include the violence
of the South African apartheid regime, the Suharto
regime in Indonesia, the "Contras" in Nicaragua and
other American-backed terrorist states. This is a
conservative figure, for it predates the deaths caused
by the Anglo-American-driven sanctions against civilians
in Iraq. As Neil Sammonds has pointed out: "When US
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said in May 1996
that the killing of half a million Iraqi children was 'a
price worth paying' to keep pressure on Baghdad, she was
acting well within any reasonable definition of
Those who committed the disgusting mass murder in Bali
need to be caught and their organisation broken. But
this is unlikely to happen while state terrorism is in
the ascendancy, and goes unacknowledged as the most
virulent menace of all - and as, in many cases, the root
of non-state atrocities. A piratical assault on Iraq
will be an act of terrorism by state extremists in
Washington. It will also be the catalyst for years of
recruitment of those willing to murder westerners in
skyscrapers and nightclubs.
St Augustine tells the story of a conversation between
Alexander the Great and a pirate he captured. "How dare
you molest the seas?" asks Alexander. "How dare you
molest the whole world?" the pirate replies. "Because I
do it with a little ship only, I am called a thief.
You, doing it with a great navy, are called an emperor."
Title: t r u t h o u t - Kissinger in His Own Chilling Words
(*Editors Note The selection of Henry Kissinger by the
Bush Administration to oversee the investigation of the
events leading up to the September 11th. attacks has
done little to allay concerns about what the
Administration knew prior to the attacks. To the
contrary Kissinger with all his baggage appears to
represent an almost desperate desire on the part of the
Bush Administration to keep the events leading up to the
attacks hidden from public view. Remember as you do the
math; this a man who cannot travel freely in Europe and
many other parts of the world for fear of being detained
by local authorities. Kissinger is a very risky
appointment. One cannot help but wonder what would
prompt the Bush Administration to take so great a risk.

Famous Quotes by Henry Kissinger
"The US must carry out some act somewhere in the world
which shows its determination to continue to be a world
power." -- Henry Kissinger, post-Vietnam blues, as
quoted in The Washington Post, April 1975
"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops
entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will
be grateful. This is especially true if they were told
there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or
promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is
then that all peoples of the world will plead with world
leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing
every man fears is the unknown. When presented with
this scenario, individual rights will be willingly
relinquished for the guarantee of their well being
granted to them by their world government." -- Henry
Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992
Bilderburgers meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his
speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.
"I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country
go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people.
The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters
to be left to decide for themselves." -- Henry
Kissinger, Secretary of State under Richard Nixon, about
Chile prior to the CIA overthrow of the democratically
elected government of socialist President Salvadore
Allende in 1973
"Why should we flagellate ourselves for what the
Cambodians did to each other?" -- Henry Kissinger - who
(with Richard Nixon) was responsible for the massive
bombing of Cambodia in 1973, which killed three-quarters
of a million peasants and disrupted Cambodian society,
setting the stage for Pol Pot to come to power and
ultimately kill another one-and-a-half million people
"Covert action should not be confused with missionary
work." -- Henry Kissinger, commenting on the US sellout
of the Kurds in Iraq in 1975
"The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional
takes a little longer." --Henry Kissinger

Henry Kissinger - Bloody
Hands Full of Gold
By Cheryl Seal
c. 2002 The News Insider & Cheryl Seal
It has become the joke of the day that the Bush Administration is
stuffed full of "political dinosaurs" from the Cold War era who want to
rattle their sabers and make one last stand like geriatric John Waynes.
They are everywhere, both in front of the curtain -Cheney, Rumsfeld,
Powell, et al.- and behind it -Bush, Sr., James Baker, Henry Kissinger,
and God only knows who else. However, what these men truly represent is
no joke at all.
Behind the smokescreen of patriotism, national security and ideology,
they are driven by just one motive: greed. Every single one of these
players is a politician for reasons of expediency (power can buy more
power). First and foremost, they are corporate tycoons whose primary
goal is to advance the cause of corporations. Each one is worth millions
and each one is now in a position to engineer policies that will insure
they will ultimately be worth millions more.
These policies are now in the process of being pushed forward, and have
so far being met with an astonishing lack of resistance. This may be
because many Americans, including some Congress members, are too young
to recall the true nature of the Cold War era. It may also be that some
have simply failed to make themselves sufficiently informed on the
nation's political history. It is impossible to believe that anyone
armed with the facts would fail to see the ugly template that is now
being forced down over the face of the nation.
This article presents a chunk of political history that we hope will
serve as a cautionary tale. It clearly exemplifies what the "political
dinosaurs" now in charge of our nation are all about, how they operated
in the past, and how they still hope to operate. The main figure, Henry
Kissinger, personifies to a T the snake-like combination of
unscrupulousness and superficial charm that characterizes all of these
players, from Bush, Sr. to G.W. The setting, Indonesia, personifies all
areas of Earth where any natural resources may be left for a greedy few
to exploit in the name of "patriotism" and "national security," be it
Africa, the Amazon, Ukraine, or northern Alaska.
An Opportunist's Dream Come True
Indonesia has long been a dream come true for opportunists (until this
century they were called "explorers"). With its 17,000 islands sprinkled
across the equator in the South Pacific atop a zone of tectonic
upheaval, it is a land of incredible biodiversity and dramatic
landscapes. Among its main islands are Sumatra, Borneo, Java, Timor
(East and West), and Bali (of "South Pacific" fame). Its forests and
mountains are treasure chests of exotic plants and animals, while its
human population is just as diverse -as recently as the 1980s, an
estimated 250 different languages were spoken there.
The first westerners to exploit the region were the Portuguese (although
the Dutch had a smaller settlement earlier). In the 17th century, the
Portuguese began to "mine" the forests for spices while dominating the
natives with a heavy hand. These fragrant exports earned the region the
name of "the Spice Islands." Since then, this land, whose native
inhabitants in some regions have lineages extending back as much as one
million years, has been the focus of a greedy tug-of-war between
different foreign powers and between these powers and the Indonesian
native peoples. Gold aside, no Indonesian resources have been at the
center of more collective strife, bloodshed, and environmental damage
than oil and natural gas.
After World War II, Indonesia made a determined stand for its autonomy.
By 1950, they had thrown off domination by the Japanese (who had
commandeered the oil and liquid natural gas supplies during the war),
then pushed away the control of the British and Indian armies, and,
finally, the Dutch. The new Indonesian leader Sukarno (not to be
confused with the later brutal dictator Suharto) eventually became the
country's first president. Sukarno was a visionary who pursued an ideal
he called "Pancasilo," a state of Indonesian unity in which ethnic and
religious tolerance would prevail. It was a dream that was doomed to
failure; halfway round the globe, forces were massing that would
ultimately topple Sukarno and his government.
In the United States, after World War II, the age of the automobile had
dawned. Americans in geometrically growing numbers were heading off to
"See the USA in their [great big gas-guzzling] Chevrolets". They came
home from their cruises to modern oil-heated homes in proliferating
suburbs. Existing US sources, already heavily exploited, soon could not
match the demand for abundant, cheap fuel and so the oil companies
looked elsewhere, to places such as Indonesia. At the same time,
oil-rich Southeast Asia was struggling for autonomy, urged on by the
growing Asian communist party, which wanted to distribute Asian wealth
more evenly and shake off western control. For western oil and mineral
companies, an independent Asia was a major impediment to the
exploitation of Indonesia's resources. To address this "impediment," as
early as 1953, the US National Security Council had adopted a policy of
"appropriate action in collaboration with friendly countries to prevent
permanent communist control of Indonesia." However, the only real threat
to the US that communism in Southeast Asia posed at that time was as a
hindrance to corporations hoping to tap into cheap labor, land, and
The history of Indonesia from 1957 on is the history of the struggle of
corporations, aided and abetted by the CIA and the corrupt puppet
governments they helped to set up, to maintain control over Indonesia's
resources. In 1957, the Indonesian state company Pertamina was created
under Sukarno for the purpose of developing and controlling oil and
natural gas for the advancement of Indonesia. This development was
viewed with alarm by US petroleum companies, who themselves wanted
control over the country's oil and gas resources. Until the mid-1960s,
most of Pertamina's business partners were Chinese, not American.
In 1958, the CIA began to secretly finance, as well as create, political
factions aligned against Sukarno. The agency also funneled money to a
handful of corrupt, ambitious generals. Thus "fed," these generals
quickly began to grow in power and influence, both in the government and
in business wheeling and dealing. Meanwhile, Sukarno was in the midst of
his "Guided Democracy Movement." Although he himself identified most
closely with the communist group called the PKI, there were at that time
three important political parties in Indonesia -the PKI, the
nationalistic PNI and the conservative Muslims. This represented a
greater democratic diversity than could be found in America at that
By 1964, Sukarno had grown completely disgusted by American efforts to
buy influence in Indonesia and announced that he would no longer accept
any aid from the US. That was when the CIA, now operating chiefly
through the ambitious, greedy general Suharto, began to push forward
with a relentless, carefully orchestrated plan to topple Sukarno.
The Corporate Takeover of Indonesia
In the US a Harvard professor named Henry Kissinger was steadily
scooping up experience in international affairs and high-level corporate
wheeling and dealing -a combination that was to later prove deadly for
the people of Indonesia. From 1954 to 1969, Kissinger had his fingers in
a number of juicy pies. From 1954 until 1971 he was a professor at
Harvard University -though it is hard to see how he found time to teach-
and was in the college's Department of Government and its Center for
International Affairs From 1955-56, he served as Study Director of
Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy for the Council of Foreign Relations.
From 1956-58 he was Director of the Special Studies Project for the
Rockefeller Brothers and was also Director of the Harvard Defense
Studies Program from 1958 to 1971.
By the time Kissinger embarked on his career as a master "diplomat"
(i.e. corporate intriguer), he was extremely well versed in espionage
tactics. From 1943 (the year he came to the US from Nazi Germany) to
1946, he served in the US Army Counter-Intelligence Corps and from 1946
to 1949 was a Captain in the Military Intelligence Reserve. After the
war he was Director of the Psychological Strategy Board and of the
Operations Research Office. In the late 1950s, his influence in
Washington really began to send out tentacles. . Between 1959-68,
Kissinger was, at different or overlapping times, a consultant to: the
US Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, the Department of State, the
Rand Corporation, the National Security Council, and the Weapons Systems
Evaluation Group of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Through this spider's web of connections, Kissinger was privy to a
bonanza of inside international information, both political and
corporate and was fast becoming especially well groomed in those
pertaining to Southeast Asia. By 1965, it is obvious Kissinger was using
this information to speculate for personal gain in Indonesia. It is also
obvious that by 1965 many top corporate execs in the US mining, logging,
oil, and gas industries who had staked out potential claims in
Indonesia, somehow knew that Sukarno was going to be muscled out and
were circling like sharks.
In 1965, Freeport Sulfur, a company based in New Orleans, cut a private
deal with the Indonesian government, through Suharto (who by now had
immense power in the government) to create a copper-gold mine in West
Papua. Who was the deal broker, making sure Freeport got in on the
"ground floor"? There is little doubt this middle man was Henry
Kissinger. At the same time, Mobile Oil Indonesia was also entering into
contracts with Pertamina. It has been alleged that Kissinger also served
as a deal broker in this alliance. Over a dozen other oil companies were
waiting for their chance to pounce.
All that was needed to complete the scheme was to get rid of Sukarno. To
engineer a coup, the CIA took a page from Hitler and the 1950s GOP and
turned the PKI into the "monster under the bed." The agency composed and
printed lurid, and largely false propaganda about the communist "menace"
and disseminated it throughout Indonesia. Some of the literature called
for all Muslims to declare a religious Jihad against the PKI -even
asserting that it was "God's will" that all communists be killed. The
coup engineers targeted young Muslim men 19-20 years of age, whom they
whipped into a fear-filled, religious frenzy, then armed with weapons
supplied by the US
What was most despicable about this plot was that until the party began
to be persecuted in 1965, the PKI had maintained a strict policy of
remaining within the law, conducting only legal protests and remaining
unarmed, so as not to provoke the Indonesian military. The "crime" the
PKI had committed in the eyes of corrupt generals and their western
landowning allies was to urge poor peasants to demand more rights and
just compensation from wealthy landowners. The PKI also demanded that
the big landowners cease violating the ancient Indonesian rules of crop
sharing. The peasants' land was being used to grow sugar and rubber -not
the rice that was vital to the survival of the poor. In some areas, the
PKI created "armies" of farmers, who took over tracts of land and
planted rice. Many of these farmers had been left without any access to
land at all due to the eruption of the Ganungagung volcano.
In 1966, having set the stage by spreading suspicion, anger and fear
against the communists, the CIA and Suharto went into the next act of
what was to become known as the Untung Coup. Six generals still
considered loyal to Sukarno were brutally murdered by Suharto and his
cohorts. The communists were then framed for the crime, thereby
providing Suharto with the excuse he needed to unleash a wholesale
"purge" of the PKI. Hitler did much the same thing in Germany in the
1930s -he framed a young Dutch man who belonged to the communist party
for blowing up the Reichstag, and thus was able to declare outright war
on all communists, which constituted the only faction in Germany that
had posed a serious roadblock to his complete domination.
The largely unarmed PKI members were hunted down and slaughtered in one
of the most appalling bloodbaths of the 20th century. The poor farmers
who had taken a few acres of land were shot down by landowners like
turkeys in a shoot. Entire families in which a single member was
suspected of being a communist were murdered, including children, some
while they slept. Between 1965-1966 an estimated 500,000 to one million
men, women, and children were massacred -most with weapons supplied by
the US. "Time" magazine reported during this period that "travelers from
[some] areas tell of small rivers and streams that have been literally
clogged with bodies." However, "Time," like all media in the US in that
pre-Vietnam War era (the US presence in Vietnam was still a "police
action" then) was still well-indoctrinated by the anti-communist,
pro-corporate dogma created by the GOP in the 1950s and sustained by the
CIA and a cluster of powerful insiders through the decades ever since.
In the July 15, 1966 issue of "Time," the bloody Untung Coup was hailed
as "the West's best news in years."
In the final step of the coup, Suharto deposed Sukarno. What followed
was a feeding frenzy by Suharto, his henchmen and US corporations. Like
a warlord, Suharto appropriated the best of everything he could for
himself and his family -oil wells, timberlands, and sugar plantations.
Thousands of acres of land were seized by companies with the blessings
of Suharto. Tens of thousands of native people were killed, displaced,
or "disappeared" to make way for mining, logging, and drilling
operations. Suharto and the other corrupt officers of the Indonesian
military were involved in every imaginable money-generating scheme,
including smuggling -"a range of activities limited only by the
imaginations of the military commanders." In 1966, Suharto declared
himself committed to aiding the West in its exploitation of Indonesia.
In 1967, the "Foreign Investment Law" was passed, which officially threw
Indonesia's doors wide open to foreign exploitation. In 1967, guess what
western company was the first to be licensed under this new, corrupt and
bloodstained regime: The Freeport gold operation.
A Feudal Regime Where Enough is Never Enough
While the US companies ripped billions of dollars out of the Indonesian
landscape, over 60% of the nation lived below the poverty line, many at
the point of starvation. Yet, the Suharto government would always point
to a handful of new schools as proof of his compassion for his country.
Even in 2001, Freeport-McMoRan offers a slick propaganda brochure that
shows scrubbed natives in front of a single school, and describes a
smorgasbord of corporate largesse, which doesn't really exist. The few
crusts thrown to the Indonesian natives by Freeport have been in spite
of the company; most real advances in the treatment of natives has
occurred between 1999-2001 and then only because of the growing public
As always, when it comes to corporate greed, enough is never enough. By
1974, the US had lost Vietnam and, under Suharto's rule, there were
constant outbreaks of rebellion in Indonesia. Nowhere was the push for
independence more well-organized and persistent than in East Timor. The
progressive governor there decided to allow the formation of multiple
political parties, which in turn lead to an intensified push for
independence from the oppression of Suharto and from foreign interests.
The prospect of East Timorese autonomy dismayed Suharto because he and
his friends had very valuable holdings in the region, including three
oil wells. If the push for independence succeeded, he might lose his
"investments". Worse yet, the push for independence could easily spread
into nearby West Papua, threatening Suharto's other interests and
Kissinger's gold mine (in which Suharto had a hefty share).
Evidence examined recently by researchers, including investigative
reporter Christopher Hitchens strongly indicates that in 1975, Kissinger
helped orchestrate a surprise invasion of East Timor by the Indonesian
military. . Beyond any likely coincidence, Kissinger and Gerald Ford
were visiting Suharto on December 6, 1975, the night before the invasion
(although Ford may have been Kissinger's dupe, used as a legitimizing
"front" -or even fall guy). The next day, just an hour or so after Air
Force One had cleared Indonesian air space, carrying Kissinger and Ford
back to the US, the attack on East Timor was launched and the region was
soon declared Indonesia's 27th province. In the process, over 200,000
East Timorese people were slaughtered outright; tens of thousands more
died of starvation and disease later.
For the next two decades, for the oil and mining industries in
Indonesia, and for Henry Kissinger, it was to be business as usual.
The Rape and Murder of Irian Jaya
Henry Kissinger has one sweet deal in the Freeport-McMoran Copper and
Gold Co (FCX on the NYSE). Not only does he make well over $500,000 a
year just for sitting on the board of directors, his "consulting" firm,
Kissinger & Associates (Now Mclarty & Kissinger) rakes in
$300,000-500,000 per year as the company advisors, making sure no pesky
environmental regulations can ever be enforced and no poor native group
can ever win a settlement for having their land poisoned. But best of
all for him, he is also the majority stockholder in a company with
reserves estimated at $60 billion, making it the single largest gold
deposit in the world and third largest open-pit copper mine. That is, he
was the majority stockholder as of a few months ago -he may now be
unloading certain damning assets as fast as he can dump them in the face
of the growing international scrutiny by a list of countries he has
harmed in the past 40 years. To also throw the public off the scent, in
January 2001, he named Roy J. Stapleton, a former US ambassador to
Singapore as "managing director" (i.e. head lobbyist) of Kissinger &
Associates. This accomplished two strategic things for Kissinger: it got
his name off the "masthead" as legal rep. for FCX, and it will help
carry on his own tradition of using inside government information to
insure he gains an unfair advantage as a lobbyist
Yep, Kissinger's got a pretty good deal all right. Especially when you
consider that FCX has never had to pay much of anything to anybody but a
handful of stakeholders, which includes Kissinger, good ole boy Jim-Bob
Moffett (who came on board as CEO in 1981) and their golf-playing pal
Suharto (although I imagine his grip on the club might be a bit
slippery, what with all that blood on them from the over one million
men, women and children he has been responsible for slaughtering. If you
want to get a feeling for just what sort of person "Jim-Bob" is, check
out this link.
-but take your airbag along. Under Suharto's odious Contract of Work,
slapped together in 1967, Suharto handed 100,000 hectares of land in the
southern area of West Papua, also called Irian Jaya, to FCX for its gold
mine. Neither FCX nor Suharto cared that this was not their land to
carve up, but belonged to the Amaungme and Komoro people, whose lineages
go back as much as one million years, according to some anthropologists.
The corporation simply seized the land and booted off the natives. An
estimated 2,000 people were shoved into concentration camp-like
"settlements" over the next few years so their land could be turned into
a giant gold mine, waste pits, processing buildings, airfields, roads,
etc. (In FCX's website, they claim no more than 1,000 people lived in
the mine region at the start, but the statistics indicate this is a
As the years went by, FCX gobbled up more and more forestland. Today,
the operation consumes a monstrous 5.75 million acres. Instead of a few
thousand natives scattered throughout the forest, able to sustain
themselves off their land, FCX actually boasts in its website that Irian
Jaya is now "home" to 100,000 people from all over the Indonesian
region. It doesn't add that most of them were displaced by other
corporate or military operations or that they now live in congested,
filthy shantytowns on the edge of the mining operation. The website says
these people were drawn by the economic opportunity offered by the mine.
What economic opportunity? There are only 7,000 or so jobs associated
with the mining operation; most of which are filled by imported workers.
The few jobs held by natives are unskilled.
But any protests by native peoples against the FCX "improvements" to
Irian Jaya have been handled brutally. Thanks to Suharto and the steady
supply of US weapons, FCX has been well-protected from uprisings. In
fact, Irian Jaya is the most militarized zone in all of Indonesia, with
a greater, more heavily armed military presence than even East Timor.
There have been numerous human rights reports of atrocities by FCX's
"security forces." Natives have been shot along the road as if they were
objects for target practice, pulled off buses and murdered, others have
been tortured, some have had their villages torched, yet others report
being held kidnapped and held prisoner in FCX packing crates. In one
particularly horrendous instance, when natives blew up a slurry pipe
carrying contaminated mine wastes, the military retaliated and
slaughtered an estimated 900 people.
There is no doubt at all that Kissinger is completely aware of these
atrocities. But then, according to a growing body of evidence, he was
also aware of the atrocities in Chile, Cambodia, Argentina, and
elsewhere -not only aware but, in some cases, was actively involved in
helping orchestrate them. In any case, there is no doubt he has been
fully aware of the routine, environmentally devastating practices going
on at the mine.
Freeport-McMoran, which derives its name from its relationship with Rio
Tinto, a British/Australian mining conglomerate that owns a 12% share in
the operation, is outrageously wasteful by American standards (which
themselves leave something to be desired). For every 300,000 tons of
ore, only 0.42 parts per million in gold is extracted. This means that
to get at the tiny fraction of gold, the mountain must, literally, be
chewed to pieces. By 1996, nearly 400 feet had been ripped off the top
of Puncuk Jaya Mountain, a mountain that was not only sacred to local
natives, but also the highest peak between the Andes and the Himalayas.
Today, the rubble from FCX's vast giant Grasberg Mine is dumped into two
neighboring valleys. In the next few decades, the company expects to
blast and bulldoze THREE BILLION TONS of rock, which will form vast
mounds of dangerous, slide-prone rubble. Although it is illegal to dump
tailings- slurry of crushed ore, water, cyanide, arsenic, and other
toxic chemicals used in ore processing - into American rivers, in
Indonesia it is a routine practice. That's because Kissinger and Jim-Bob
are calling all the shots -they share equal billing at the FCX website,
each being both CEO and chairman of the board of directors. Every week,
millions of tons of tailings are dumped into the Ajkwa River.
The accumulated waste has blocked and flooded the river several times,
contaminating (cumulatively) over 100 square kilometers of once
productive land. The contamination is, for all intents and purposes (as
it may take hundreds of years to abate naturally) permanent. A recent
study of abandoned gold and copper mines in the American west shows that
land flooded by water laced by tailings is still contaminated decades
after the end of mining operations. Some patches have become wastelands,
while waters in some areas downstream of the origin of contamination are
still barren. The toxics accumulate in tissues of animals, so the
contamination level of fish and birds can gradually climb instead of
The Freeport-McMoran operation has now thoroughly contaminated the
region's watershed, an area that is home to the Lorentz Reserve, a
region rich in wetlands that contains one of just three equatorial
glacier zones left on Earth. As far as 80 miles downstream from the
mine, villagers have had to be relocated because of the danger that the
dam holding back the huge, noxious lake of tailings might break. Some
people have refused to leave. Said one elderly native: "God gave this
land. I will not be moved from it. If I go, what is there for my
The water in the Ajkwa river, which is the lifeblood of Irian Jaya, is
now unfit to drink along much of its length. Native people, especially
the elderly, who do not understand why they can no longer drink the
water or eat the fish from their father's and father's father's river,
stubbornly persist. As a result, many have been poisoned and many have
died from what the Indonesian medical personnel now call "mystery
diseases." Much like Gulf War Syndrome (which is believed to be caused
by a mix of toxic chemicals), natives with "mystery diseases" develop
strange skin lesions and rashes, chronic nausea, and may cough up blood.
The natives have said that the sweet potatoes and taro they
traditionally eat now have ominous discolorations, while the skin of the
wild pigs that serve as meat appears diseased. To avoid being poisoned,
natives must travel sometimes many miles to commercial markets and
purchase food they once hunted and gathered for free, thus fueling their
poverty even more.
Perhaps the harshest plight of all is that of the "relocated." These
once free, proud people of the forest are forced to live in squalid,
crowded shantytown settlements, little better than concentration camps.
There, they are plagued by high rates of malaria, cholera, tetanus,
sexually-transmitted diseases, and malnutrition. Infant mortality is
high -twenty percent of infants do not survive- while the average life
expectancy of adults is about 50 years (FCX's "brochure" touts an
increase in life expectancy in recent years, but, tellingly, fails to
mention just what it is). Yet, West Papua's central highlands have just
ONE 70-bed hospital to serve 400,000 people. Despite the health risks
posed by poverty coupled with a toxic environment, the Amaungme and
Komaro people who chose to remain in their forest land near the mine
have no access to any government medical care.
At the FCX website, there is a very long (too long -methinks they doth
protest too much) section on how great things are going for the natives,
how wonderful the environmental standards of the company are, how much
the company has done for the natives. However, you will also notice that
the "good example" being held up is not Freeport-McMoRan, but the
Indonesian government's smaller operation called Freeport-PI. But even
the Freeport-PI accomplishments are somewhat pitiful. For example, we
are supposed to be impressed that a whole $166 million was spent over an
11-year period on at least 100,000 people? That's less than $200 per
year per person. Meanwhile, Jim-Bob and HK probably hauled home at least
$166 million between them from FCX during the same time!
The standard of life for the natives has little hope of improving.
Freeport-McMoran's labor practices systematically exclude natives,
despite what their rosy little brochure would have you believe. Of over
17,000 workers (in 2000), just 100 or so were local natives, who were
paid 70 cents per hour. FCX claims that as of 2001, just over 1,500 jobs
are now held by natives -however, it doesn't specify if those are local
natives or just natives of Indonesia (i.e., workers imported from urban
centers like Jakarta). The 1% fund the company set up for local natives
has caused more problems and conflicts than it has helped
-intentionally, say some human rights observers. Those overseeing the
distribution of the funds are often corrupt; little of the money
actually ever reaches those it was intended to help, and payments from
FCX have been called arbitrary at best.
FCX's approach to environmental outrages has consisted of liberal coats
of whitewash. For example, FCX tried to make a $248,000 grant to HAMAK
(Foundation for Human Rights Anti-Violence), an organization directed by
Ms. Josepha Alomung, an activist who won the Goldman environmental prize
in 2001. But Alomung was angered by the grant and refused to accept it.
First of all, she had never applied for the grant, so it was obvious
that FCX was trying to grab some "gain by association" it did not
deserve through deceitful means. Even more glaringly, Alomung said she
would never accept cash from an outfit whose activities ran so
completely counter to her principles. Yet, in their website, FCX boasts
that Ms. Alomung has been written them a letter of appreciation!
To date, FCX has never spent a dime on cleaning up the past devastation
wrought by the mine -which is the equivalent in its extent of several of
the largest "superfund sites" in the US. The local people receive what
amounts to $300 a piece per year compensation from profits -a gesture
even more pitiful than Bush's $300 per head tax rebate. Meanwhile good
ole boy turned gold baron Jim Bob Moffett once scoffed at the idea that
the monster mine was poisoning the river -dumping tailings into the
Ajkwa's waters was no big deal said Jim-Bob: "It's the equivalent of me
pissing in the Arafua Sea." But Jim Bob's pampered, self-aggrandizing
view of reality, spouted fromthe comfort of his stateside mansion, isn't
worth the breath it's printed on.
The evidence of Freeport-McMoran's gross environmental negligence and
human rights abuses had grown so overwhelming by the mid-1990s, that the
Overseas Private Investment Corps. (OPIC) canceled the company's $100
million insurance policy in 1995, citing severe environmental problems.
According to the OPIC report, FCX had "created and continues to pose
unreasonable or major environmental, health, or safety hazards to the
rivers that are being impacted by the tailings, the surrounding
terrestrial ecosystem, and the local inhabitants." But like all classic
robber barons, Kissinger and Jim-Bob went on a vicious offensive to
protect their ill-gotten gains. Immediately following the cancellation
announcement, FCX brought out its big guns: money. Millions and millions
of dollars were spent buying up magazine ads, TV time, and on strategic
charitable donations. In short, they poured money into everything EXCEPT
righting their wrongs. The company bought an entire half hour
infomercial, which aired in Austin and New Orleans. In an incredible
slap in the public's face, the Public Broadcasting System station
WLAE-TV in Texas aired the slot as an "educational special" at NO
CHARGE! Warm-fuzzy full-page ads ran in Newsweek and US News & World
When journalists started writing articles or airing stories critical of
Freeport-McMoran, it simply bought most of them off (a black eye to the
field of honest environmental journalism). Among the sellouts: Bill
Collier, formerly of the "Austin American-Statesman," who became FCX's
Austin spokesman, and WWL's Garland Robinette, who took a cushy job in
FCX's PR department. It must be noted that one journalist who wrote for
the "Austin Chronicle," Robert Bryce, not only turned down a lucrative
bribe job from FCX, he went onto to write more hard-hitting FCX exposes,
including an extremely thorough investigative report in "Mother Jones"
Kissinger & Co. also scrambled to call in every favor and twist every
arm they had access to. When Suharto tried to pressure Bill Clinton into
intervening on FCX's behalf against OPIC, Clinton, to his great credit,
refused. A former CIA chief, with access to all sorts of ammunition it
should have been unthinkable to use, was called into help fight OPIC.
Swiss bankers, international insurers, and environmental regulators were
flown into Irian Jaya all-expenses paid and given free luxury
vacation-like visits and carefully choreographed tours of selected areas
of the mine complex. In the end, it is not too surprising (though
incredibly disappointing to those who believe in justice) that
Kissinger's clout once more prevailed and the mine's insurance
So, in the wake of such a close call and a growing public spotlight on
FCX, did the company make sweeping remedial changes in the way it
handled environmental and human rights issues? Hardly. Instead, in 1997,
the company asked permission to expand the operation to TWICE the size
it was at the time. One of the last things done by Suharto (who owned a
substantial share in the mine) before he was forced to resign by a
nation burned out by his corruption, was to approve the expansion. This
approval was granted following a cozy little private conference between
him and Jim-Bob Moffett. Once Suharto was gone, the company had a harder
time completing their outrageous request due to the resistance of the
minister in charge of mining, Kuntoro, and the Indonesian
intelligentsia, who were outraged by the flagrant concessions and
benefits already showered on FCX by Suharto.
However, good ole Jim-Bob just waited until the hopelessly weak new
leader Habibie was installed in office, then started wheeling and
dealing full force. Habibie, a pushover from day one, caved in readily.
By now, Kuntoro was being pressured relentlessly by western corporations
used to being given special above-the-law treatment by their "buddy"
Suharto. Kuntoro was finally forced to agree to the expansion, but
demanded that the mine clean up its environmental act and pay a higher
royalty rate to the government. Unfortunately, most environmentalists
say any environmental standards imposed on FCX remained on paper only.
The next "crisis" for FCX came when Habibie was ousted and replaced by
Wahid, whom many Indonesians hoped would nationalize operations such as
FCX, demoting such western gold and oil barons to the "paying guest"
status which should have been theirs from the start. But Wahid, just
like Habibie, proved to have feet of clay when pressured by Jim-Bob and
Kissinger. In early 2000, shortly after Wahid took over, Kissinger went
to Indonesia and began a process of combined intimidation and corporate
bribery aimed at extracting a promise from Wahid that he would not
Rather than act in Indonesia's best interests and demand that Kissinger
completely overhaul FCX's environmental and labor practices, in
February, 2000, the corrupt Wahid made Kissinger an advisor on foreign
affairs! Not only that, but he apparently gave FCX more concessions than
ever. In its blurb on the NY Stock Exchange site, FCX boasts that the
cost of producing gold and copper at FCX is just about the cheapest in
the world (of course it is! They have no overhead, no fines, minimal
taxes, pay less than $1.00 per hour for laboring jobs and never really
paid for their land). It also boasts that production is at an all time
high (we can just picture the devastation this is translating into!),
while the costs of production and delivery are "lower than ever" (this
hardly sounds promising for the local economy and workers!). It is also
noted in the blurb that the company was "relieved of" its $6 million per
year commitment to West Papua. This sounds suspiciously as if Wahid
absolved the corporation of fulfilling their obligation to return some
of its profits to the people of West Papua. In any case, the company's
revenues between January and July of this year were an astounding $985
million -almost one billion dollars.
The graph for FCX stock closely mirrors the course of US and Indonesian
political events -proving that the company's wealth is based heavily on
political favor. Last summer, with the unsympathetic Clinton still in
office and Wahid's reign weakening, the stock was hovering at a lowish
point. Then, toward December 1, when it became apparent Bush would
succeed in stealing the White House, the stock steadily climbs again,
only to fall again in late May and June when Wahid toppled from power.
By the way, in 1999-2000, FCX made election donations in the US
amounting to over $262,000, an estimated 2/3 of which went to the GOP.
(Much of the money spent on the Democratic Party over the years has been
done with an eye to insuring that FCX's close ally (and bad apple
Democrat) John Breaux of Louisiana would keep winning his senate seat,
which, of course, he has.) It should also be pointed out that within
days of Bush's inauguration, Kissinger was dining with the new White
House resident and Cheney at the home of former CIA "mockingbird"
Katharine Graham. It should also be noted that well-grounded rumors
allege that one of the names topping Cheney's secret energy task force
list is Henry Kissinger. No wonder the White House wants to keep it
Now that Wahid is gone and Sukarno's daughter, Megawati, has been made
president of Indonesia, it will be very interesting to see what sort of
intimidation, calling in of favors, bribes and pressures Kissinger and
good ole Jim-Bob try to unleash and how dedicated to the welfare of her
people and her father's memory Megawatti will prove to be.

In It for US
Your either with US as equals under a rule of law as
Universal Justice, or your a mindless slave whore
sacrificing your soul for bush, the anti-Christ, who
will as he continues, stealing and murdering from our
families without any good reason, or provocations as
evil incarnate he is to US all. A murdering nazi demon
of evilness never before known. As he as shown, he
would steal from every American, Justice, Freedom, and
Liberty, while only saying, no he's not, as who knows
how many are illegally arrested as disappeared, and he
funnels billions of real American worker tax dollars
into criminal thefts through the Pentagon. The False
Claims Act. Like he has polluted ourselves in Texas, as
he directly supported the murder of tens of thousands in
Afghanistan without evidence, stolen tens of billions
from Americans for himself, and fought against smart and
healthy universal heath care as educated, and continues
to support the legal inaction against Enron, who fleeced
any American pensions they could get a hold on, of which
the biggest criminal in the Enron debacle, outside of
Ken Lay is Thomas White, who he has made no indications
of arresting, or even firing, as the Secretary of the
Army. Mr. bush gave his buddy Krongard the right to
murder any law abiding American citizen as soldier, and
escape criminal conviction, a traitor to America is our
Mr. bush jr., Constitutionally, plain and simple. A
nazi warmonger, who wishes to murder millions with
nuclear weapons, a savage, a monster. A demon who has
placed in his secret administration, those responsible
for the death squads of Nicaragua, and the shipments of
cocaine into America, to increase crime against every
community, while his supporters support the school of
the Americas, by removing free speech from those who
wish to point to those repuglicans ultimately
responsible for harboring real terrorism, (Mr. bush
Sr.) according to Sergeant Chuck Couglin of the Milwaukee
Sheriff's Department. He has also said he wishes no
interest in stopping his increase in the heroin trade.
He, as pure evil, who holds practically no deception to
ourselves if you'd only listen, has destabilized the
world in his commitment to the destruction of our legal
due process, by suggesting his entourage, can not be
found guilty of any crimes against our humanity, of
which they spout like rumsfeld in silence to torture,
and murder those known by all to have committed no
offense, through now military dictatorship, of which,
true Americans will not allow him to take US further, I
will not stand for it, nor should you as a Patriot
soldier protecting the flag. I demand again, the
immediate arrest of bush and rumsfeld for crimes against
humanity, in New York City and Afghanistan, or their
rightful execution by all free thinkers in America who
own firearms, and can read of our stories not present by
the corporate establishment. Mr. bush and rumsfeld
expect every single human on our planet to relinquish
our rights as living human beings. Mr. bush had no
qualms about doing business with the Taliban in August,
if they would only, by bribe, collectively sacrifice
their interests in serving for their country, as bush
has done to America for his entire career degenerating.
Mr. rumsfeld asked our living World for the murder of
"Omar the Just", for the only reason of requesting
evidence. Bin Laden, as we all remember, offered his
arrest to authorities upon the showing of any evidence,
for a crime he stated was no part of, including all the
other baseless claims made by the Clinton
administration, who too, could not arrest Bin Laden then
either, when he sat in jail for 47 days uncharged
waiting. Which is how we know again, Mr. bush is
directly involved in NYC, as would too, as have to be,
rumsfeld to let the towers fall, but too stupid evil
they both are, to not know the wise intentions of
America's founding fathers, or myself as the Messiah,
Johnny Wizard. For as we knew, all the planted evidence
and otherwise, that was publicly available, pointed only
to bush and rumsfeld for not seeking who was
responsible, only to leave blame quickly as not
possible, on a Nation accused without evidence, that had
a month prior been planned to rob and murder from for
Enron was desperate to hide their crimes against every
American dollar. All documented. Kill bush and
rumsfeld on site American soldier, and be loved by all
Holy Jesus Man!
Have you heard the Revelations from India's government
to the FBI now made public?, regarding the principle
terrorist funder of Mohammad Atta being, the ISI's,
General Ahmad? The bush administration's personal
confidant, and top secret military strategist? See, it
was Jim at MSNBC that informed US of bush's terrorist
plan existing as once top secret presidential documents,
and, that this same general, was also responsible for,
according to several members of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, developing the said war strategy of invading
Afghanistan on behalf of the evil bushmob, with the very
anti-human premise, of blaming bin Laden for a crime
without any evidence to substantiate our public
accusation, to murder more than a hundred thousand,
plus! A crime, 9/11, I will remind you, that for when
the evil plan was devised, hadn't even yet taken place.
But was threatened would happen, if the Taliban didn't
side for Enron's interests in serving for Ken Lay, one
of bush's many bum buddies. (They apparently do that
sort of thing on a regular basis, with all the members
in their secret meetings of the 'only Boners'
fraternity.) It doesn't take much either to understand
why rotten rumsfeld, corporate america's sweetheart,
(you know, the sadistic nazi war criminal who gets off
on murdering or torturing innocent people), told US he
wanted to have arrested those at the WhiteHouse and the
Pentagon, or even in the Military, who would dare as
Americans, to inform Americans what he and bush were
truly doing in their names.
Destroy the unelected unarrested heroin pushing American
cop killer war criminal, the demon we all know so well

degenerate, a cowardly regressing nazi bush slave, who
would sacrifice your own family as yourself truly,
because JESUS CHRIST, life is living to survive for
Justice, as God is warranted to be as ourselves, with
equal rights to being as is of US all included. Mr.
ashcroft tells Americans he is purposefully destroying
their freedoms as legal due process because he, as an
idiot, and a traitor, has to fight ourselves as a
terrorist blindly in Our names without American Justice,
but never explains his action, is asked to, nor could
he. As ashcroft, like most in the bushmob are, is
founded completely unqualified. Why doesn't ashcroft
move to have bush and rumsfeld arrested or executed
immediately by following the criminal leads for 9/11 on
behalf of Americans as an American?, what with all the
ample evidence documented as factual and everything?
Instead, decides too, like the demon bush demands in
attempt to sway his capture, that evidence will no
longer be mandatory for him to decide who should be
stolen from, as the left dead to be robbed as forgotten
by Justice denied to all as Godly. American soldiers
are truly as represented, weak, slow, and painfully

Britain backs US plan for attack on Iraq
By Philip Webster, Political Editor
(Quoting the terrorist supporter blair, Philip was),
``To be TRUTHFUL about it, there was no way we could
have got the public consent to have suddenly launched a
campaign on Afghanistan but for what happened on
September 11.'' ...
Oh, so there was a criminal intent known also by
yourself then blair to prop up heroin pushers to save
Enron's impending criminal bankruptcy?
We have repeatedly witnessed, CNN and CBC refusing to
represent our Democracies, our FBI officers, like airing
Coleen Rowley, General Ahmad, or the sabotaging of the
Moussouie investigation by ashcroft, or the CIA,
regarding the insider stock trades, or dealing heroin.
The innocence of the Taliban for 9/11, and the barbarity
of the Northern Alliance as heroin pusher slave owners.
No, every single american according to CNN being
unbiased, does not want bush the anit-Christ arrested
immediately for killing Americans in New York City to
steal our worths and freedoms as worthy of defense
matters by their own measure as corporate cultists. As
I told you, Bill Hemmer and several other celebs at CNN,
now are fully aware of bush and rumsfeld being the true
perpetrators of 9/11, yet, Bill continues to play evil
against US all, figuring nobody ever will know without
CNN coverage on his contempt for American Patriots he
asks to have sacrificed for as bushwhores like himself
and Blitzer. CNN refuses to protect Americans as equals
committed to Justice for US all.

Again, bush and blair, like CNN, have no evidence to
substantiate their allegations against Saddam, and have
stated because they have no evidence, they therefor as
demons, can murder anyone on the face of this planet to
steal our lives in OUR names as US innocent. Mr. blair
and the bushmob have recently stated, that they have no
evidence that Saddam has any WMDs, nor, is any threat to
OUR WORLD community, and because of that, if the
inspectors find no weapons, and Saddam insists it is
because he doesn't have any, this, accordingly, would
give these criminal master minds a cause to murder
hundreds of thousands of innocent people, if not
millions, and steal all the assets of the Iraqi people,
while destabilizing our entire endangered species. They
are mass murderers, threatening humanity to recommit
more murder as TERRORISTS! Never while I stand ALIVE
evil nazi dumb fucks. KILL BUSH NOW! Hey, have you
heard about rotten rumsfeld's P2OG? "O", as in Oh
rumsfeld is truly an evil fuck! Apparently, rumsfeld
wants to provoke terrorist activity to murder ourselves
as innocent civilians, as an opportunity to invade any
country he wants to rob and plunder further. Also, most
importantly, according to the official documents, rotten
rumsfeld figures it would be important when he and his
mobsters commit these crimes, it be understood, that
nobody be able to trace it to himself, or his partners
in crime, so they figure, the criminal acts should be
carried out through his department at the pentagon,
then, get this, he won't therefor be accountable, or

Corporate Street Gangs -- Monsanto
Almost everyone is well aware of the street gangs that
plague the inner-cities of the United States and some
other countries. The members of these gangs often act
without conscience, hurting and sometimes killing others
in order to obtain what they want -- usually money. Of
course, the majority of people residing in inner cities
are wonderful, caring human beings.
Not unexpectedly, there are similar people at all levels
of society. It is incredibly naive, after all, to
expect that all of the dishonest and dangerous people
are the "disadvantaged" in inner-cities. While most
people throughout society are honest and caring people,
there are similar "gangs" whose members operate with
little or no conscience at all levels of society,
including in the corporate world.
The individuals who run Monsanto Chemical Corporation
are one such gang that, in my opinion, knowingly causes
death, pain and suffering with absolutely no regard for
the consequences. Of course, most people who work for
Monsanto are probably honest and caring people. The
same goes for most people who help run companies.
However, the people who run Monsanto are a perfect study
of a Corporate Street Gang that runs wild, causing pain
and suffering throughout the world. This "street gang"
is far more dangerous than any one inner-city street
gang could ever be.
A few of Monsanto's many toxic products include:
Monsanto is now proliferating this slow poison in the
food supply throughout the world, speading the pain and
suffering that it has already caused in the U.S.
population to other unsuspecting populations. Nearly 1
million people in the U.S. are *aware* that is has
caused them health problems (based on adverse reaction
reports divided by estimated reporting rate). And
probably many, many times that figure are experiencing
the cumulative toxicity from aspartame and are not yet
aware of it. All of this has happened even though this
slow poison has been used in the U.S. in significant
amounts for less than 10 years. The prospects of
long-term aspartame use may bring us brain cancer and
other illnesses seen in lifetime pre-approval studies.
Along with the spread of aspartame is the spread of
dishonest information. They have been caught giving out
inaccurate information to honest scientists and news
organizations. Since they are already adding a slow
poison to the food supply, one can imagine that, for
them, lying to honest people is relatively easy.
Dishonest and inaccurate information is also spread
through PR organizations that they help fund such as the
International Food Information Council (IFIC), American
Dietetics Association (ADA), and a number of other
organizations that give out inaccurate information just
as if it had come directly from Monsanto (and it
Other victims of Monsanto's push of aspartame on the
world population include:
-- The scientific community and scientific ethics. Many
of the studies associated with the manufacturer of
aspartame boardered on fraud (and the FDA, at one time,
urged prosecution). They flooded the scientific
community with countless studies that sound convincing
in abstract form, but prove worthless (at best) when
analyzed carefully. The scientific community (and tens
of thousands of honest physicians) were conned, the
scientific method was seriously damaged, and
Monsanto-funded studies helped proliferate "research"
where scientific ethics means nothing and the correct
results mean everything.
-- The FDA. After many officials at the FDA and other
key government agencies were offered jobs with companies
related to the aspartame industry (including the US
prosecutor investigating them for fraud being hired by
their law firm, and the FDA Commissioner being hired as
a consultant for their PR firm), the FDA became little
more than a cheerleader for the aspartame manufacturer
on this issue. Instead of being objective, the FDA
refused funding of legitimate research and instead
funded useless research. FDA representatives published
articles that totally ignored independent research and
relied only on industry-funded research. The FDA banned
safer sweeteners that are used throughout the world in
order to help keep the aspartame market alive. The
integrity of the FDA -- at least what it had left -- has
been severely damaged by this fiasco. Every day that
aspartame stays on the market is more proof that the FDA
is simply acting as a Monsanto subsidiary on this issue.
-- US and State Congressional "Representatives." The
manufacturer and their owners gave large sums of money
to the campaigns of "representatives" in order to assure
a proper outcome of state and US hearings. This
manufactuer hanky-panky led to a secret hearing in
Arizona leading to a law disallowing safety hearings of
aspartame. On the Federal level, the manufacturer's
money, in my opinion, helped get the votes of key
representatives which prevented a law requiring
independent, NIH-funded testing and better labeling. On
an international level, the manufacturer was caught
paying government officials to obtain the approval for
sale of their products. An offer of big money to a
Canadian official to obtain approval for one of their
new toxic products is proof that it is "business as
usual" for Monsanto.
All of this amounts to an abuse of government by the
aspartame manufacturer. This contributes to government
officials and representatives (at least some of them)
becoming little more than indentured servants for
special interest groups -- in this case Monsanto.
Please see the aspartame web page form more general and
2. Toxic Carpeting
This is another case where Monsanto has abused the
scientific method, helped destroy the impartiality of
another government agency (the EPA), and continued to
throw money at government officials to prevent *real*
action from being taken regarding what has already by
proven by *indpendent* researchers to be seriously
dangerous levels of toxic emissions coming from their
carpeting for years after installation. This has also
led to large numbers of people (especially young
children) suffering from moderate to serious health
damage. Since the damage of often slow and silent (like
aspartame), many people are not aware that they or their
children are suffering gradual neurological and/or
When independent researchers discovered the danger of
toxic carpeting from Monsanto (and Dupont), Monsanto was
not satisfied with looking at the situation in a
scientific way. They drafted a memo which showed they
planed to deal with the situation by discrediting one of
the independent researchers. After that memo became
public, Monsanto and the industry PR group, the Carpet &
Rug Institute (CRI), claimed that they decided not to
pursue that course of action. Unfortunately, it is
perfectly clear from reading the blatently inaccurate
information currently pumped out by the CRI, that that
is exactly the action which Monsanto is taking.
Please see the toxic carpeting web page for more information:
Another dangerous Monsanto fiasco. (Monsanto has a long
history of creating dangerous chemicals -- Agent Orange
ingredients, PCB's, etc.) A number of prominent
researchers have analyzed pre-approval and post-approval
data on this issue and have found that milk from the use
of this "product" may significantly speed the growth of
cancer in humans - particularly breast cancer. Even a
prominent cancer researcher has recently expressed
serious concern about this issue.
Instead of calling for several years of truly
independent research to resolve this issue, Monsanto is
more than willing to sacrifice future generations to
significant increases in cancer deaths (especially
breast cancer deaths) in order to make money. Monsanto
is doing everything it can, in an underhanded way to
force this toxic product on society. This includes:
-- Threatening dairies that want to label their milk as
"rBGH-free" with major lawsuits, even though milk
produced with the use of rBGH has been recently proven
to be significantly different than normal milk, the
dairies are intimidated. Consumers are not able to tell
the difference without labeling.
-- Offering at least one government official a huge sum
of money to obtain approval for this toxic product.
They were caught because the government official was
honest and reported the attempted payoff. One can only
wonder how many times such payoffs were not caught.
-- Encouraging the passage of laws that make it illegal
to say negative things about this and other toxic
products (called "Food Disparagement Laws"). This law
has been passed in several states in the U.S. by
corporate indentured servants (i.e., government
representatives). Even though this law is clearly
unconstitutional, it has an effect of intimidating media
outlets and other organizations that might otherwise
This is another typical case where Monsanto has abused
the scientific method. In addition, they refuse to
release key research which is suspected to confirm some
of the many dangers of rBGH use. There is a suit in
U.S. Federal Court at this time trying to get the
release of these scientific documents.
More independent and scientific information on rBGH can be found
4. Other Monsanto Toxic Products
There are many other product sold by Monsanto that are
contributing to pain and suffering around the world.
For example, there have been a number of people online
whose health has been severely damaged by Monsanto's
toxic herbicide, "Roundup." Monsanto has created
genetically engineered soybeans, cotton, potatoes,
canola, corn, and sugar beets that can withstand the
heavy use of Roundup. This will cause greater use of
Roundup and lead to additional health damage. In
addition, ingestion of these crops may lead to an
increased ingestion of traces of Roundup. Since these
more dangerous "Roundup Toxic Crops" will be mixed with
normal crops, according to reports, it will be difficult
for consumers to tell the difference. The best bet is
to eat certified organic foods or get a guarantee from
your store that Roundup was not used on *any* percentage
of their crops.
Some people may make the following points about Monsanto's "business
1. Monsanto's record of preventing release of toxic substances into
the environment has improved.
That may be true. However, Monsanto is now putting
toxic products directly into the food supply (e.g.,
aspartame, rBGH) and the home (toxic carpeting)! Most
people were far better off having a significant indirect
exposure from the environment as opposed to what is
happening now -- people unknowingly becoming miniature
toxic waste dumps for Monsanto's toxic products. Also,
one has to keep in mind that much of their
"environmental cleaup" is hype and PR as opposed to
substance. If they simply stop selling their toxic
products (starting with those mentioned above) and clean
up the PCB's from the environment they will be making a
real *first step* towards corporate ethics. Until then,
they are simply spreading the toxic waste, pain, and
suffering in a different way.
2. Monsanto gives money to organizations in order to help people.
If a major cocaine dealer gave a percentage of his
income to non-profit organizations, it would still be
obvious to everyone that this person is still producing
his money from the pain and suffering of his customers.
Monsanto is a similar situation in that it makes money
by selling products that destroy people's health over a
lifetime (or sooner). It easily causes many times more
suffering with the sale of its products than it
donations could ever help. In fact, some of Monsanto's
"donations" seem to be more of an attempt to buy a good
word about its toxic products.
Here are the people who are currently most responsible
for Monsanto-caused pain and suffering throughout the
world -- the Monsanto Board of Directors taken from the
1995 Monsanto Annual Report. Being somewhat religous, I
believe that God will eventually forgive them for all of
the pain and suffering that they are causing.
(Although, if there is a "Hell," these individuals may
probably deserve a free pass to get in.) It is
unfortunate that "pain and suffering" is the legacy that
this people choose to leave in this world.
Please write them and "thank" them for the pain and
suffering they have and are inflicting upon the world

A Better Way
Like the bushmob
partner's theft of billions through Enron, of which in
Congressional hearings, nobody wanted to know the
pension money is still sitting in the Cayman Islands,
ready to be returned to the helpless victims, like an
American soldier's family being deemed by Congress, as
unimportant to their standard of living. No care right
nazi soldier? Just murder innocent third worlders to
tell your mother how much you care so for her? While
the war criminals, working for Dutch shell, heroin
dealers, and the monsters from Iran-contra, rumsfeld and
tommy, the nazi fucks, search the third world for people
who speak outrage against corporate America funding our
deaths by murder through censorship. While I sit here
writing as Johnny, waiting for a corporate professional
to deem me worth topicing on as unstoppable sweet
goodness. Look, read of our no counter opinion critics
in google 'groups', who publicly call themselves morons
or traitors willingly. Spooky dumb I'll tell ya.
We are all the Palestinians being counted
without value by corporate dictates ignoring the human
The Truth is Marching On
We continue to witness the American corporate news
degenerates refusing to report on the 200 missiles fired
into Jenin, the attack on hospitals, police, education
and health organizations, along with ambulances. While
now getting us ready to except nazi sharon's evilness
like he's something close to human. Arafat in Arabic
and English has explained with intelligent reason, using
terror tactics against innocent Jews, suits not the
means of US being murdered as civilians with nazi
gestapo excuses, perpetrated everyday against our
interest by America's corporate elites, who are only so,
by robbing and killing ourselves through censorship.
While sharon's anti-Semite parasitic disease forbids all
Christians from owning property, of whom as Americans,
fund to murder and steal from us as believers. The
recent corporate approved news story is that sharon nazi
soldiers, who after slaughtering hundreds of innocent
civilians state, there only sorry for killing a woman
and her two children mistaken for terrorists. But what
of the hundreds of other murder victims, and the
destruction of government facilities and media outlets?
While all the while stealing and pillaging from a people
deprived of Justice? No comment, no coverage, no
excuses, sharon must diet! Mr. bush, the anti-Christ,
has murdered thousands of New Yorkers, and has stolen
billions from every American with criminal frauds going
undetested by corporate standards. Mr. Dick Armey, as
the official leader of the repuglican party, is a bigot
as is a functional illiterate, and also supports
genocide apparently of us Catholics, Muslims, Jews, and
Atheists he wishes to see deprived human rights he
vocalized. True, America has the lowest literacy rate
of all developed countries, but Christ can't repuglicans
at least find a traitor to our humanity capable of
pretending to be otherwise? Nope, impossible. CNN
demands WE, as humanity, have no rights to know who was
responsible for the terrorist acts in New York City, to
further sacrifice our lives for their pay bonuses from
the traitors in the bushmob and Ted Turner, to steal
further from YOUR life and family, while propagandizing
our world with their terrorist propaganda, like Bin was
threatening to nuke America, while they sit smiling,
advocating the murder of those who the entire world
understands with the facts as innocent of the crime they
accuse ourselves of unbiasedly, as never heard from to
speak in defense for ourselves. Email this document to
your favorite corporate news office to confirm for
yourself why they refuse to ever interview, or hire our
world's most popular prolific political writers. Mr.
rumsfeld the evil traitor nazi bigot fuck, advocates the
murder of those known by all to be innocent, the
Taliban, who only several months previous to 9/11 were
given 47 million for farmers, and praised for opening
girl schools, doing our world so well in only five years
regarding heroin, and moving their nation towards a
better future for women, albeit slowly in their state of
starvation, while also being open to communications,
communications that is obvious to everyone, what the
bushmob with CNN destest as a method of our self
awareness, and potentials for a better future for us
all. Like those who demand I be forbidden to defend
myself with written word, because I'm so brilliantly
alive, by exposing the evil of which is Mr. bush alone,
depraved. Just as Art Bell will censor any true
American who talks on protecting American values like to
protect Americans from being robbed and murdered from.
Bigotry reins in corporate news America, while they
watch the Constitution and the Bill of Rights go
undefended by themselves without care to represent the
interests of America being discounted as valued
investment. No one has disagreed with our wanting for
Justice, though the corporate cultists suggest we have
no rights to defend ourselves, call them up and ask them
to be ourselves, CJOB for example as the advertised
corporate voice of Winnipeg. Not one god has disagreed
with my stance on the immediate arrest or execution of
bush, rumsfeld, or sharon, but for in mindless ignorance
holding opinions based in bigoted propaganda, as not
documented or recorded substantiated facts. Only the
nazi ariel sharon believes in murdering innocent people
as a terrorist he admits to us all publicly, while
Arafat sees the flaw in reason as not suiting to fit for
any peace for our communities. How can killing,
torturing, and destroying the homes of innocent
civilians be considered anything but, terrorism? More
than 300 buildings and 2000 homes? The death count
could be thousands. Mr. bush, the anti-Christ himself,
stated he personally as evil personified didn't need
evidence to know Bin was guilty, and therefor bush could
murder tens of thousands in Afghanistan for a crime he
and rumsfeld are responsible for, to steal from us all,
the right to freedom, justice, and liberty. But I am
not a coward as a True Patriot to my Humanity Mr. bush,
and we'll destroy you myself for being a demon of hatred
against our God of love, peace, and understanding. Mr.
Mueller, the head of the FBI, who meets everyday with
George Tenet, the head of the CIA, stated recently after
reviewing his quoted statements stated, actually they as
officers of our laws have no evidence whatsoever
connecting anyone but the bushmob to the terrorist acts
in New York City, testifiable through the public
information given by ourselves, the DEA, the CIA, and
the FBI in our fields, of which Mr. Mueller seems
completely absent minded of publicly speaking anyway.
Look see for yourself.
''In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single
piece of paper -- either here in the United States or in
the treasure trove of information that has turned up in
Afghanistan and elsewhere -- that mentioned any aspect
of the Sept. 11 plot,''
Gee Mr. Mueller haven't you heard of Mike Vreeland with
court documents dated and everything? The 61 page DEA
report talking about film taken of the Sears tower? Or
how about Odigo? Maybe writing done by myself, Johnny
Wizard, the Son of Man, two weeks prior? How about the
film footage the Japanese have regarding an American
missile? Have you seen it? Our RCMP have. How about
the ten or so FBI officers now testifing against your
athourity to act on behalf of America, due to their
attempts to warn Americans before hand, to only do
silenced by the bushmob with threats of incarcerations?
Is not the stealing of evidence by bush and two bogus
FBI badge carriers worthy of your attention? What about
the 'put options'? Who shot down flight 93? There can
not be five terrorists aboard flight eleven, indicating
the tampering of evidence by the two bushmob
investigators day one into the investigations. How did
Atta miracle sprint back and forth from one side of the
Airport to the other, (to check his packed bag of party
crackers), without being captured on the cameras, even
for a flight he wouldn't have boarded without his
passport? Are these not aspects of imformation
regarding the Sept. 11 plot? What about eight or more
of your suspects being alive and well? As pilots? Who
came up with your bullshit story Mr. Mueller? How is
it possible to believe bush the war monger's position
against Bin without evidence then, doesn't implicate
himself and rumsfeld directly as nazi vermin, the most
horrendous evil the world has ever witnessed my friends?
Hmmm... Kill the terrorist traitors, bush and rumsfeld
American Patriot Soldiers. Every country but
corporatized America, including every human rights group
condemns Mr. sharon as a nazi demon, while bush and his
degenerates talk as if there is an argument to be made
politely, but so only when we, as civilized are silenced
from communicating as if never heard from. Look, all
the evidence is in, bush and rumsfeld killed Americans
in New York City to impede the impending criminal
bankruptcy of Enron, who in August, had Ken Lay frantic
and the bushmob threatening to bomb Afghanistan if the
Taliban rufused to except repuglican bribes, desperate
to give access to run the generators at the bushmob's
Enron power plant in India through Unocal, worthless
otherwise, and without war would have rightly condemned
the bushmob as thieves to every American pension holder
and otherwise. American news agencies do everything
they can as traitors to American values by silencing any
concern that brings reason to our interests, fearing
their exposure to be what they is, cowards as nazi
sympathizers like Art Bell while leaving us all to die
as murdered by the extremely weak and pathetic bush,
rumsfeld and sharons with nuclear weapons, the demon
monsters, that we must squash as gnats as the living
people of this world who hold justice to be of
ourselves. I will not sacrifice my soul, this planet,
our universe, so bush can steal my life and destroy our
worlds in his own contempt for living as himself, pure
evil scum. A sell out of evilness against our humanity
never before seen in our history is the anti-Christ, our
Mr. bush jr.. Mr. bush the terrorist, tells us he
wants to kill innocent people while he steals our money,
while advocating the support to those who deal cocaine
and heroin, and who finance death squads. Kill the
traitors bush, rumsfeld, and sharon for mass murders in
New York City, Afghanistan, and Palestine American
Patriot Soldier, baker, Police officer, truck driver,
biker, janitor, and Insurance salesman, as US, the tax
CNN now tells us, without any room for question, nor
discussion, the sooty fires at the WTC towers reached
2000 degrees? Place an iron nail above a unsmoldering
soot free, oxygen a plenty, Roman candle for some time,
(tricky), and see, wow, like magic, the steel doesn't
melt even placed directly in the white zone for hours on
end. CNN is refusing to stand with our widely
understood science, and the FBI in our made public
investigations regarding the anthrax from Fort Detrick,
and Dr. Philip Zack, (not Muslim), who was caught on
video tape entering the only secured storage facility of
our world for the Anthrax strain. Anthrax, that Barbera
Hatch Rosenberg, of the Federation of American
Scientists, who through genetic analysis confirmed, was
the Ames strain, identical to the stocks of where Dr.
Zack was caught lurking red handed. But no, CBS is able
to report that nothing of this is going on presently.
We all know bush and rumsfeld hold no responsibility to
ourselves as humanity to find the true culprits for
9/11, because their both evil murdering nazi facists as
traitors to us all, unAmerican, ungodly and scumballs.
Mr. bush the anti-American dictator, has criminally
stolen over 60 billion American worker tax dollars so
far, (and like Enron), from every soldier's grandmother,
and sees no other purpose in his hellish dark shallow
existence, but to see more suffer for his contempt for
ourselves living to be free of his tyranny. Explaining
why they neither, bush nor rumsfeld, address my made
public, world wide military allegations of their
murdering criminal actions, of which to the common man
they are both to be found guilty of, and as they both
continue to do not so in their own defense of which they
have none, goes for to show further, they rob and kill
US humans by ignoring our strengths and convictions,
like WE don't truly exist, to hide their lies as being
cowards, and pathetically weak as individuals, traitors,
who will be brought down by the full extent of the rage
in which we possess against themselves as guilty of
continuing crimes against our freedom to remain
Kill bush Now!
Ask any public american bush supporter, why do they
mindlessly as slaves without thought to question,
advocate as terrorists, the planned for murder of those
known by all to be innocent? As yourself, publicly
accused in our names without evidence, as done so by the
bushmob is still, and will be for always, the high crime
of murder in the first degree. A crime well
established, as again, I am filing as voiced publicly,
against the perpetrator war criminal bush Jr., and
rotten rumsfeld, as pirates of my freedom to live for
such willingly. I demand their immediate arrest or
execution as confessed guilty for 9/11. An american
soldier to not do so, is no American Patriot, but a nazi
coward, and a traitor against all the nation as America
for the People enshrined by the Constitution, as equals
under God, innocent until proven otherwise.
Do you think I'm going to go silent?, while the bushmob
murders innocent people in humanity's name to steal
freedom's won value?, as garnered only through Justice
ever fought for? Do you think US for a fool maybe
corporate devolving human haters? Mr. bush and
rumsfeld, who with General Ahmad, were the central
perpetrators of 9/11, as the actual evidence is
concretely established by the FBI and MSNBC with
presidential directive documents, with no contention
offered from anyone, for as vile evil is deceived,
they've already confessed to the deed as guilty of,
against the American people as it's Justice system is of
ourselves truly living.
But yes, american soldiers are too weak minded to pay
attention as even alive apparently, according to almost
all American corporate news broadcasts, as worth
consideration whatsoever. I'd have to agree, on general
terms, americans soldiers represented, are cowardly nazi
dumb fuck scums. Read posts at us.military by signed so
as bush whores. Barely literate, who spout endlessly
about how good it feels to drop bombs on US as the
innocent and practically defenseless, while cowering in
fear from those who suggest their job is to protect
America as the equal rights through law instills, not
for the evil, unelected anti-Christ, American cop
killer, Our Mr. Bush Jr. to steal further from the
We witness in silence to watch their OWN protectors run
away to be cowards to drop bombs on ourselves in
Afghanistan, so the bushmob can sell heroin and leave
the Afghans unprotected, and so further too, rifle all
our savings as won for already battles. A criminal is
only to be, as known so by evidence. Those to hide the
identity of bush's america war reason as good cause, is
a deceived nation murdering innocent people to steal our
purpose as themselves, unworthy. Like evil tommy franks
the terrorist does, murdering people indiscriminately as
the unrepresented by corporate outrage, to be denied
justice for yourself too american dimwit. Or rumsfeld,
who after implementing the strategy to murder good
police officers, offered a reward to kill Omar the Just,
because Omar publicly suggested arresting the terrorists
by following the actual ample evidence as the true
American belief system lost to the evil dictates of
Un-American rumsfeld's illegitimacy, unchallenged by
corporate standards. All of America's intellectuals are
forbidden from public acknowledgement through corporate
cult standards, though, like Chomsky, sell millions of
books almost yearly to US masses. Fuck, I'd destroy
American traitor, American cop killer bush, rumsfeld, or
death squad leader tommy franks in a heart beat, how
about you American Patriot Soldier? Evidence these
three sadistic nazi demon child killers demand we no
longer follow, to arrest the true criminals, for 9/11 as
example, which would be naturally, the bushmob
themselves, headed by the royal dumb fuk, america's
false deity, the anti-Christ, Our Mr. Bush Jr., the
evilest thing that has ever existed in the entire
history of humanity. The american corporate news
entertainers, do everything they can, to rob from the
great American people, their life savings and living
standards, by actively working to watch the bushmob
destroy the American Constitution through ample
corporate media access, er, coverage to not be so
concerned with those freedom living matters for our
entertainment value. Ask a dumb fuk nazi bush
supporter, what a regressive tax is, and they'll go
mindlessly blank, while advocating the robbery of their
Own grand parents with VLTs, as their very own family
being cheated, and mislead, which is why, they are so
stuck ignorantly evil, and dumb as themselves TRULY,
honest to God, whoreshiping to bush as their all knowing
false god unthinkingly. Americans are truly dumb son.
(2% Social Security are what Americans are getting back
in themselves as investment, but the nazi bush
supporters don't want Americans to publicly figure the
simple math, but instead, to get access to CNN almost
daily need only advocate further shysting, as americans,
on the whole, are genuinely stupid to be conned
generally as a nation that, in total, holds the highest
rates of illiteracy, innumeracy, incarceration, and just
overall, dumb fuckedness.) Mr. rumsfeld tells american
nazi soldiers he wishes to torture and imprison
completely innocent individuals as would be their own
brothers and sisters, as denying us all legal due
process, while purposefully, publicly advocating more
terrorism to benefit the coffers at the Pentagon, and do
American soldiers not just shoot him, and bush dead
immediately as war criminal mad men on the loose
re-offending? No. Not present anywhere as Brave
Americans ready for sacrifice apparently. Too fucking
stoopid to tink about duh American flag as worth
protecting as their own brethren still living. We hear
corporate america go on about how important it is to
murder established as innocent people for no reason but
to put more money in bush and rumsfeld's thieving
pockets, while managing CNN for less
responsibility,(Less investment for the time spent, or..
more money for the buck right?) all over the arguments
that terrorist threats exist secretly that no one
actually knows about, while I, Johnny Wizard, tell NRA
members publicly, and American soldiers to destroy bush
and rumsfeld immediately to many thousands the world
over, relying only on the facts clearly documented.
Yet, corporate america makes no mention about the
importance of practicing the tenants of law to apprehend
the two demon fascists, while instead, tells US those
that hate bush with a vengeance, just live in some cave
hidden away unknown somewhere secretly, and do so
because... We hate freedom under bush as dictator. Mr.
Bush, you demon nazi freedom hater, you and me, a fight
to the end, bare hands, televised, world wide, then
rumsfeld, ashcroft, and finally tommy franks and his
wimp ass slave boys. The evidence for 9/11 I stand
with, is irrespective of my opinion. The bushmob
actually killed Americans in New York city, and no one
can actually find disagreement with the documented to be
true facts, not the FBI, the CIA, the RCMP, nor, the
Secret Service. Nor any of the many police officers I
have spoken honestly with. But they, as the corporate
cult cogs down at corporate news command, continue to
lie as the American public to be drawn cowardly conning,
uninterested in arresting or immediately executing bush
and rumsfeld as mass murderers, instead, to continue to
murder and rob from those they believe are weak as
underrepresented by corporate control without themselves
as US being. Ever. Bill Hemmer knows bush killed all
those many, like himself in New York City, and he speaks
nothing in his defense as a victim to his own shallow
existence, as nor does he speak in defense of soldiers
sacrificed to be as easily propagandized to become
traitors to their own family and neighbors. Well, I,
for one, am willing to mark down cowardly american
soldiers for what they truly are individually, and will
continue to Fight as I have, as a true American Patriot,
until, those left standing for Freedom, are those who
uphold the Amercan principles as law in the American
Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, to garner true
happiness for the American Nation of Human beings the
Universe over. Think NRA member. I'll post this to
practically every American military usenet group, and
not one American Soldier will articulate a disagreement
with our findings as documented, however, CNN will
continue to broadcast, that WE, the God Loving, the Just
Living, the Atheists, are a poor minority worth
sacrifice in the millions for demon bush as the unheard
publicly from on the importance of your Justice to be
so. That they, the corporate cultists, wish YOUR
unquestioning faith and dying obedience for bush to
suffer and die undeserving for, is as they witness our
world to be what they see to be themselves. Practicing
their machinations as corporate agenda. Unthinking...
Kill bush now!
Is Enron Behind The War In Afghanistan?
Look, American soldier..
You now should know, bush and rumsfeld murdered
Americans in New York City, and as consequence, have no
interest in acknowledging as pursued the criminal
investigations. CNN holds no responsibility, as we
witness repeatedly, to American soldiers, but to harbor
those who pirate our rights to openly steal real lives.
If bush makes no mention of himself stealing 50 billion
dollars, murdering American police officers, sabotaging
the weapons inspections process, funding israeli
atrocities against the God loving, and warring our world
as the anti-Christ by running death squads against the
innocent, well, CNN, the american success, sure ain't
gonna be speaking out for your stolen freedoms poor
dying comrades. For what benefit in market share would
there be to work for your living, dirt bagged? CNN is
so colorfully excited about selling the glossy bush war
to kill the poor stupid people, but for what american
fascist weak binded bushmobbed soldier without
principles? Again, how stupidly dunce does a poor
cowardly american soldier have to be to not believe?
Nobody but a cult corporatized illiterate fascist nazi
vermin parasite, just like Jew hater ariel sharon would
support the murder of American soldiers for a criminal
conflict that doesn't serve to protect. But if it, as
bush nazi evil does with little struggle over the masses
complaining, and america marches off to criminally war
the third world as the bad guys, our World, indeed this
Universe will then know the absolute true cowardice of
american soldiers, as premised upon the weakness of
america's army to not uphold America's own rule of Law
for freedom as themselves included. It only takes One
Soldier to turn this tide to destroy bush Jr. and
rotten rumsfeld, and that Soldier is where in America
partner? Who American soldier, do you think bush as
traitor does steal from as the duped General public as
corporately represented to be painfully unawares? Do
american soldiers have to convince themselves their
families are not worth fighting for, and instead, lay
their lives down in sacrifice to the bush demon who
would also steal from their graves as the lifeless to
speak out for themselves ever? Ever? Did you know
American Soldier, the Pentagon, after receiving
complaints from surviving soldier families, (some of
like the over a thousand documented American troops
slaughtered in Afghanistan) that taps wasn't being
played because of so little real talent present in
american military affairs, and that now, when a cowardly
American nazi soldier dies for the bushmob, the mock
national guard will hold a horn to his lips and act out
the part to your grieving as stolen from family, while
secretly pressing a hidden button, that will play a
cheaper recording? But shhhh...
The fact that you don't see this post, or others nearly
like it at american military internet sites, exemplifies
their fear and weakness to stand as a force worth
reconing with. (Look, we destroy bush and rumsfeld,
stop funding the drug trade and sharon, and begin the
public trials, all in three simple steps.) No, to be an
american soldier in bush's america today, you have to
hide from your cowardice like the 9/11 evidence, and be
something corporate news america is not. Involved.
Just go ahead and die for nothing american soldier, but
for to be unaccounted as hidden without value, while the
bushmob robs from your grand parents as unprotected.
Tis' true it does further seem, american soldiers, on
general terms, are super dumb ass nazi scums, who hold
little of no conviction to protect the America I
remember. Why? Because the unelected war criminal,
American traitor, mass murderer, cop killer bush is
still spewing his blind hatred for the progress of our
civilizations, instilled through law as a function to
gain justice for people, People who are suffering and
dying for bush's contempt of our American dream.
Destroy traitor bush and rumsfeld for escaping to
recommit murder today, and be actually caring for your
world tomorrow, or not, and deem yourself unworthy by
your own admission to play fair as the eternal standing
proud, strong, and forever free.
Free to be living justly for yourself
truly as caring to know this as everything.
Now, how about the Koran?
Christ I'm Actually Rising!
Destroy the traitors to our humanity, the unelected
lawless dictator Mr. bush, and rotten rumsfeld the
sadistic savage now American Patriot Soldiers. Stand up
for your country, and live for your family. The
corporate TV news professionals show you, as an American
Soldier a concern for your life as unworthy of
discussion, actively censoring the political reality on
bush's america, while encouraging soldiers to commit
crimes against our being, by keeping us all uninformed
as the sacrificial sheeple. The bushmob have actively
worked to not arrest themselves for 9/11, and in so
doing, are purposefully ignoring the public evidence
that is freely available. Mr. Tenant and Mueller would
have you believe the officers of America, who have
completed the criminal investigations outlining the cop
killer bush, are unworthy as American Patriots serving
the cause for freedom and liberty to not be publicly
acknowledged, while blaming Laden for every terrorist
crime that happens before an police investigation even
begins! See? Evil deceived. What do you think? Is
not a list of all supporters of the bushmob in Congress,
who voted to dismantle the Constitution, and wage a
criminal war, as without just cause to murder Soldier
families for stolen Human values, a good list to be
broadcast? Or shall we sit in doubt while these
talentless demon monsters murder millions of US as
innocent cowards? Who isn't a freedom fighting al-Qaida
member according to the evil tommy franks dum fuk's
conclusion? How stupid can an American Soldier be, to
be asked by rumsfeld and CNN, to destroy their own
principles, and to sacrifice their lives for such
cowardice in whoreship to the evil dictates of the
anti-Christ, Our Mr. bush Jr.? And, to the still
groggy, without the payoffs of corporate america's holy
Larry King even!, or the anti-Semitic fascist Saturday
Night Live troop to boot your stupid carcass to the
front line as entertainment? BA HA HA HA (like SNL's
new, it's all so hilarious audience, paid for likely
because the degrading intolerant bigoted news crew, have
so little real talent performing to the robbed and dying
to be devalued and murdered by their inaction to even
joke about it. Why? No money in contributing to the
poor stupid people without TV contracts, or TVs,
electricity, or running water now that the clouds are
being privatized.) $155,000 is the base pay of bush's
now anti-American criminal congressmen, and that's
before corporate bribes, oops, I mean corporate BRIBES
to urge YOUR "willed" sacrifice in corporate america's
"democracy", now that bush's america is convinced
evidence is no longer a requirement to convince US, who
is truly an evil doer, or who actually wins elections on
behalf of the People. You ask yourself, again, who are
you dying for American Patriot Soldier? Know that this
paper, like all the rest, will reach the CNN and Coast
to Coast network staff under one name or another, and
yet, they'll continue to turn against the interests of
American soldiers by not addressing our present top
priority concerns regarding the facts on your schedule
for departure. Only broadcasting the popular, bush
contempt for all American lives as too much trouble, as
unworthy the free time to openly discuss things before
"they" die, all those nasty evil powerless People. I
dare you American, to be a Soldier and email this to
your brothers and sisters, to convince them with tough
Love, how you wouldn't want to see them die unjustly for
Mr. bush Jr., Art Bell, or even me as the Wizard. Or
spew instead, how you would as a traitor to yourself,
your family, your country, and God too, sacrifice your
worthless self as unfactored, but for to be a pitiful
coward, falling to die by your own sword on stupid evil
bush's corporate command over your rights to be
represented fairly. Be your own Savior!

George Bush Plans High Crimes and Misdemeanors:
Why We Are Marching on October 26th
By Carl Messineo and Mara Verheyden-Hilliard
The authors, attorneys and co-founders of the
Partnership for Civil Justice ~ LDEF, are members of the
national steering committee of the A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act
Now to Stop War & End Racism) Coalition
George W. Bush has declared his intention to wage a
"preemptive" war against Iraq and is now seeking to
strong-arm the international community, the U.N., and
the Congress into support and submission. As members of
Congress rush to show their obedience and member states
of the U.N. line up to receive the anticipated spoils
of war, the administration is now waging a campaign to
convince the people of the United States to fall into
step and finance with money and blood this war brought
for conquest on behalf of the corporate and oil
interests that make up Bush's true constituency.
Bush's preemptive war is a war of aggression. The U.S.
policy supporting the war is not the rule of law, but
the rule of force.
But no U.N. resolution and no Congressional resolution
can legalize an illegal war. With pen to paper and
votes of support, they can only commit to willful
ratification, complicity and responsibility for illegal
acts by endorsing a criminal enterprise.
A war of aggression violates the United States
Constitution, the United Nations Charter, and the
principles of the Nuremberg Tribunal. It violates the
collective law of humanity that recognizes the
immeasurable harm and unconscionable human suffering
when a country engages in wars of aggression to advance
its government's perceived national interests.
The National Security Strategy: Blueprint for Global
On September 20, 2002, the Bush Administration issued
its blueprint for global domination and ceaseless
military interventions, in its comprehensive policy
statement entitled "The National Security Strategy of
the United States."
The National Security Strategy sets forth the U.S.
military-industrial complex's ambition for the U.S. to
remain the world's superpower with global political,
economic and military dominance. The stated policy of
the U.S. is "dissuading military competition"1 and
preventing any other world entity or union of states
"from pursuing a military build-up in hopes of
surpassing, or equaling, the power of the United
The strategic plan elevates free trade and free markets
to be "a moral principle. . . real freedom"3 and
endorses a comprehensive global conquest strategy
utilizing the World Trade Organization, the Free Trade
Act of the Americas, the International Monetary Fund,
the World Bank, among other mechanisms.
The Washington Post reports that the National Security
Strategy gives the United States "a nearly messianic
role" in its quest for global dominance.4
The National Security Strategy confirms and elaborates
what was reflected in the January 2002 Nuclear Posture
Review, that the Bush Administration maintains a policy
of preemptive warfare contemplating the use of
non-conventional weapons of mass destruction as a first
Turning Logic on Its Head
Bush's preemptive war policy is a war without just
cause. Under international law and centuries of common
legal usage, a preemptive war may be justified as an act
of self defense only where there exists a genuine and
imminent threat of physical attack.
Bush's preemptive war against Iraq doesn't even purport
to preempt a physical attack. It purports to preempt a
threat that is neither issued nor posed. Iraq is not
issuing threats of attack against the United States. It
is only the United States which threatens war.
It is not a war for disarmament. It is the U.S. which
has stockpiled nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.
It is the U.S. which is directly threatening to use
these weapons against another country. It is the U.S.
which has bombed Iraq relentlessly for more than ten
years, killing scores of innocent civilians.
The Bush Administration turns logic on its head,
twisting reality in order to create the pretext for its
war of aggression. The Administration claims that the
necessary prerequisite of an imminent threat of attack
can be found in the fact that there is no evidence of an
imminent threat, and therefore the threat is even more
sinister as a hidden threat. The lack of a threat
becomes the threat, which becomes cause for war.
By the U.S. Government's own claims, it destroyed 80%
of Iraq's weapons capability in the earlier Gulf War,
and subsequently destroyed 90% of the remaining capacity
through the weapons inspections process. There has been
no evidence that Iraq is capable of an attack on the
U.S., let alone possessing the intention of carrying out
such an attack.
Bush's Proposed War and Current Threats Violate the U.S.
Constitution, the U.N. Charter and International Law
Bush's preemptive war policy and proposed attack on Iraq
cannot be justified under any form of established law.
The preemptive war policy and Bush's threatened new
military assault on Iraq violates U.S. domestic law and
international law. The warmongering, preparations for
war, and threats of violence coming from Bush, Cheney,
Rumsfeld, Rice and other White House and Pentagon hawks,
are in and of themselves violations of international law
and constitute crimes against peace.
Article VI of the U.S. Constitution establishes that
ratified treaties, such as the U.N. Charter, are the
"supreme law of the land."
The Article 1 of the U.N. Charter establishes
"The purposes of the United Nations are. . . To
maintain international peace and sovereignty, and to
that end: to take effective collective measures for the
prevention and removals of threats to the peace, and for
the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches
of the peace and to bring about by peaceful means, and
in conformity with the principles of justice and
international law, adjustment or settlement of
international disputes or situations which might lead to
a breach of the peace. . . ."
Article 2 states that all member states "shall act in
accordance with the following Principles"
"...All members shall settle their international
disputes by peaceful means in such a manner that
international peace and security, and justice, are not
"All members shall refrain in their international
relations from the threat or use of force against the
territorial integrity or political independence of any
state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the
Purposes of the United Nations...."
Under this framework, acts of aggression, such as Bush's
threatened attack, are to be suppressed and force is
used only as a last and unavoidable resort.
The U.N. Charter was enacted in 1945 in the aftermath
of the devastation and suffering of World War II. The
Charter was enacted to bring an end to acts of
aggression, "to save succeeding generations from the
scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought
untold sorrow to mankind."
Disputes which might lead to a breach of the peace are
required to be resolved by peaceful means.
Chapter VI of the U.N. Charter, "Pacific Settlement of
Disputes," requires countries to "first of all, seek a
resolution by negotiation, enquiry, mediation,
conciliation, arbitration, judicial settlement, resort
to regional agencies or arrangements, or other peaceful
means of their own choice."
No Resolution by the U.N. Security Council can Legalize
a Preemptive War or First Strike Plan
Bush has asked the U.N. Security Council to support
execution of Bush's policy of a potentially nuclear
"preemptive" war, as if that Council could endorse a war
of aggression. The Security Council lacks the legal
authority to grant such permission. The Security
Council, by affirmative vote or by acquiescence to U.S.
policy, cannot abrogate its own mandate. No collective
action by the fifteen permanent and temporary members of
the Security Council can lawfully violate the Charter
which is the sole source of their collective authority.
This is made clear in the U.N. Charter itself, which
provides in Article 24, that "In discharging these
duties the Security Council shall act in accordance with
the Purposes and Principles of the United Nations."
While there are, of course, procedures by which
collective use of force may be authorized by the
Security Council to maintain or restore international
peace and security (Articles 41 and 42) those procedures
may not be used to endorse aggression in violation of
the primary purposes of the U.N. Charter. Article 51
of the U.N. Charter acknowledges the right to
self-defense "if an armed attack occurs against a Member
of the United Nations until the Security Council has
taken measures necessary to maintain international peace
and security." None of the provisions allow for
authorization for Bush's war plans and first strike
strategies. Any resolution authorizing a preemptive war
of aggression is ultra vires, or null and void as beyond
the authority of the Council to enact.
The very issuance of the Bush doctrine of preemptive
warfare and also the threat to wage war against Iraq
are, each, a violation of international law as a crime
against peace, which is defined in the Nuremberg Charter
as the "Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a
war of aggression or a war in violation of international
treaties, agreements or assurances."
Responsibility for War Crimes
Neither Congress nor the President has the right to
engage the U.S. in a war of aggression and any vote of
endorsement, far from legalizing or legitimizing global
war plans, serves only as ratification of war crimes.
Under the principles of universal accountability
established at Nuremberg, "The fact that a person who
committed an act which constitutes a crime under
international law acted as Head of State or responsible
Government official does not relieve him from
responsibility under international law."6
The execution of economic sanctions by the Bush I, Bush
II and Clinton Administrations, which has caused the
deaths of over one million people, primarily children
and their grandparents, is likewise sanctionable as a
crime against humanity under the Nuremberg Charter and
under the International Criminal Court Statute as "the
intentional infliction of conditions of life,. . .
the deprivation of access of food to medicine,
calculated to bring about the destruction of a part of a
The Bush Administration has rejected the International
Criminal Court treaty signed by over 130 countries.
This rejection is an admission of the administration's
consciousness of guilt and of criminal intentions. The
Bush administration acts with a conscious disregard of
humanitarian laws and a stated intention to avoid
accountability for their crimes under international law
prohibiting crimes against the peace, war crimes and
crimes against humanity. The National Security Strategy
promulgated by the Bush administration states that the
United States "will take the actions necessary to ensure
that our efforts to meet our global security commitments
and protect Americans are not impaired by the potential
for investigations, inquiry or prosecution by the
International Criminal Court (ICC), whose jurisdiction
does not extend to Americans and which we do not
Endless War, Aggression and Terror
Once this policy of preemptive wars of aggression is
invoked by the Bush Administration to justify unprovoked
attacks against the centers of population in Iraq, the
doctrine will be used by the hawks in the administration
time and time again, and will also be adopted by nations
and individuals internationally as a justification for
the preemptive use of catastrophic violence against
centers of population worldwide. The legitimization of
preemptive wars of aggression will be used to justify
attacks against U.S. centers of population, and will
bring greater violent retribution upon the cities and
people of the United States for actions that the
government is taking in their names, without their
The risk of suffering harm because of this doctrine is,
of course, not distributed equally among all residents
of the United States. Those who will lose their lives
fighting in wars of aggression will be the young,
disproportionately persons of color, and those who must
enlist in the U.S. military because of bleak economic
opportunity. Those who derive their wealth and security
from the transactions of war, from increased oil profits
caused by global instability or conquest of oil rich
regions, and from the constant re-building and re-arming
necessary to conduct endless wars against countless
peoples premised on imperceptible threats - - they will
have the means to acquire seclusion, protection and
Preemptive war will not stop with Iraq. Constant
military interventions worldwide are necessary to
enforce Bush's stated policy of global economic,
political and military domination. Just four days after
the September 11th attacks, the CIA presented its
"Worldwide Attack Matrix" identifying scores of
countries that the CIA wanted permission to attack.
Bush approved the CIA wish list, and authorized
immediate covert and lethal CIA operations in over sixty
Taking to the Streets
As the U.S. moves at breakneck pace in execution of its
stated policy of global domination and over military
interventions, the need for the people to take action is
Congress will not stop this policy of aggressive warfare
and global domination. Many in Congress are well served
with the tithing of the war profiteers and their
corporate sponsors who see U.S. military domination as
a way to enforce their interests, to exploit human labor
at starvation wages overseas and to drive down wages
domestically, to mine vast sources of environmental
resources globally, and to impose and expand the reach
of their "free" markets.
The U.S. Constitutional framework provides that,
regardless of who temporarily holds office, all power
remains in the hands of the people. It is time now for
the people to take the reins of power back from those
who have stated their intention to act in violation of
all laws that humankind has struggled to create to end
global conflagration and prohibit wars of aggression.
When law will not restrain the government, the people
must. We must take to the streets in mass numbers in
organized and spontaneous acts of resistance. The
message must be clearly conveyed that if the Bush
administration refuses to be accountable to U.S.
domestic law, to the U.N. Charter, to international
law, to all known standards of just conduct, then the
people of conscience within the United States will rise
up to demand accountability. And the message must be
sent that the people of the U.S. will not allow the
Bush administration to spend the blood of the people of
the United States and the people of Iraq who are not our
enemies, in a needless war for oil.

Hey! It is a very old issue. I my country (Hungary) this NSA thing has been told months ago. It is a shame that the whole (O.K. almost the whole) world trust a company which lies and shows intent to controll your computer.
What do you think, why is there a backdoor in a not so old release of a security patch to the Win. media player? They dare enough to write into the license agreement that, this 'bugfix' will be able to install further fixes without asking your permission. So by installing this patch you allow Microsoft to install a Digital Right Managger, that could deny you in playing your favorite mp3, just becase you don't have signed it by Bill Gates to verify it is a legal copy of your "bought in a store" CD. Maybe after a few months, or in a year M$ will start to deny you to copy your home made pictures, to protect your Copyright. Maybe after a while they will download a path to IIS, to every ISP, which will deny acces of everyone who don't brovse the net useing some M$ software.
I know IIS is just a part of the net, but a big part of it.
And what about CISCO? They produce a big part of the routers used on the net. I allready have seen a Hungaryan academic site (the computer haters socitey run on an academic machine :), that have been blocked by a service called "CISCO Web Director". It was blocked just because there was some M$ joke on it. They had to change the DNS record and the IP of that server to be able to serve they academic infos. (it was the izom.bkkl.hu)
It is not conspiration theory if we say that there is a conspiration of the US gov, and the multinational US companies to rule every little piece of information you get. To rule your knowledge. To rule your mind.
They not just want to rule the Americans, but the whole Earth. If there were UFOs they wanted to rule them too...

IF there are any programmers here in the room please raise your hand, if you believe the shit above, kill yourself immediatelly - that gets rid of all the dumb programmers...
So why am I flaming everyone here? because there isn't a phreaking NSA backdoor in ADVAPI, the complete headers are phreaking readable if you have a copy of Visual C 6 or .NET.. (.NET has the phreaking source AVAILABLE)...
So gee.. dont you think that if there was a secret *cough* backdoor in ADVAPI that it would not have been spotted earlier and just updated (if microsoft didn't know or even the general development community that has access to the source).
And also!... A few companies have access to the windows source code since late march.. Dont you think those people might have spotted it if it was in there?
Oh, and to the first poster: YOU ARE A DUMBASS, Reason: Blaming your own stupidity upon Microsoft employees...
Dont get me wrong tho, microsoft has done a lot of good things and bad things and majorly bad things (like developing the ISA server without some decent GUI)..
But ... please... people, Try to GET the JOKE thats on top of this page and please.. PLEASE dont delete advapi32.dll or advapi.dll (XP users, dont worry, DLLCache has a copy and it will restore it instantly)... if you do, you just shown the world how low your intelligence can be.

sounds like it is a way for the NSA to take surveys of the publics common interests possibly if we look at the lesser extreme...but then on the greater, it could be a violation of the INTERNET PRIVACY act signed by Bill Clinton in 1996...seems like the act was just a show for the public, apparently law does not mean anything to the government, i quote from the Stone Sour CD "government is just another way to say bettter than you"
It could be a way for the NSA to gather names of people who use and distribute warez and put them on a list (god knows the gov't has millions of lists classifying everyone into minorities). This list will be kept for future refernce......i emphasaise this is merely an idea...i don't want everyone here running around crying wolf a.k.a. conspiracy...don't believe everything u read

If you've ever licked the envelope or stamp when you've sent in your taxes, whether state, local, or federal, the government has your DNA on file as well. Also, most people are not aware of the government cameras hidden in the new streetlights (those installed in the last 10 years). Don't forget the satellites that can magnify with clear resolution down to your license plate. There was also the conspiracy with Intel to make each CPU have a unique identifier to be able to track you better. Supposedly, this is not done anymore. After all, your BIOS settings SAY it's turned off, right? And there is no way the BIOS companies could possibly be in bed with the government...
