ODDS AND ENDS THAT INFLUENCE OUR LIVES AND FUTURE
LINKS TO ARTICLES ARE FOLLOWED BY A BRIEF EXCERPT TO INDICATE THE SUBJECT MATTER Commentary: The IC's analyst in chief http://www.upi.com/Emerging_Threats/2009/03/04/Commentary_The_ICs_analyst_in_chief/UPI-75561236181639/print/ By ARNAUD DE BORCHGRAVEUPI Editor at Large WASHINGTON, March 4 (UPI) -- A rarity in Washington, the secret was well kept until the announcement by Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair. His deputy as chairman of the National Intelligence Council is Charles "Chas" W. Freeman Jr., a Chinese-speaking iconoclast with a brilliant analytical mind that is anathema to the Israel lobby and the neocons. Lucky for former Ambassador Freeman that Judaism, in contrast to Christianity, does not believe in mortal sins. But his sin is beyond redemption in Washington. Freeman is convinced that U.S. and Israeli strategic interests are not necessarily one and the same. This triggered a cascade of epithets from "Saudi puppet" to "Chas of Arabia linked to Saudi cash" to "China-coddling, Israel-basher." Leading the charge was Steve Rosen, former foreign policy director at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Military to Pledge Oath To Obama, Not Constitution Michele Chang Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is extremely frustrated with orders that the White House is contemplating. According to sources at the Pentagon, including all branches of the armed forces, the Obama Administration may break with a centuries-old tradition. (Alan note: with the Constitution demanding the USA President be of a natural born flavor and Oba-Khomeini clearly not eligible on that basis....with his plan to form his one million person Civil Security Forces likely to take a while, in fear of the inserruction being started by Americans, he wants to be able to order the Military to fight against Americans when ordered to by him to protect him!.......) Meanwhile he is hell bent on dismantling the Constitution and America one large chunk at a time and weakening us financially to a point where we can no longer resist him, his ACORN organizaers and a military he can throw at us.) A spokesman for General James Cartwright, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, states that the Obama Administration wants to have soldiers and officers pledge a loyalty oath directly to the office of the President, and no longer to the Constitution. "The oath to the Constitution is as old as the document itself." the spokesman said, "At no time in American history, not even in the Civil War, did the oath change or the subject of the oath differ. It has always been to the Constitution."The back-and-forth between the White House and the Defense Department was expected as President George W. Bush left office. President Obama has already signed orders to close Guantanamo and to pull combat troops from Iraq . But, this, say many at the Defense Department, goes too far. "Technically, we can't talk about it before it becomes official policy." the spokesman continued. "However, the Defense Department, including the Secretary, will not take this laying down. Expect a fight from the bureaucracy and the brass. "Sources at the White House had a different point of view. In a circular distributed by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the rationale for the change was made more clear." The President feels that the military has been too indoctrinated by the old harbingers of hate: nationalism, racism, and classism. By removing an oath to the American society, the soldiers are less likely to commit atrocities like those at Abu Ghraib." "We expect a lot of flak over this," the classified memo continues. "But those that would be most against it are those looking either for attention or control." The time frame for the changes are unknown. However, it is more likely that the changes will be made around the July 4th holiday, in order to dampen any potential backlash. The difference in the oath will actually only be slight. The main differences will be the new phrasing. It is expected that the oath to the Constitution will be entirely phased out within two years. Use of Technology by Terrorists Targeting India http://politicalhacking.blogspot.com/2009/03/use-of-technology-by-terrorists.html Frontier Media, an Indian blog on defense and intelligence issues, posted an article with the following concerning terrorist use of technology: "Cyber and communications crimes attained maturity as a result of two incidents. The first was the hacking of a wireless network by the so-called Deccan Mujaheedin terrorists (desperate Pakistani terrorists use such generic names for projecting it as an Indian outfit), which resulted in an e-mail threat that implicated a foreigner. The second incident was the Pakistani terrorists Lashkar-e-Taiba’s (Jamaat-ud-Dawa) use of a satellite phone and Russian server during the attack on Mumbai, which resulted in the deaths of more than 180 Indians and foreign citizens alike – women and children among them." Think tank links Hizbullah to South American piracy By Nicholas Kimbrell Daily Star staff http://www.dailystar.com.lb/article.asp?edition_id=1&categ_id=1&article_id=99853 BEIRUT: Hizbullah has raised millions of dollars from the sale of pirated DVDs particularly in South America, according to a report published by a US public policy think tank. The report, published by the RAND Corporation, highlights the increasing role organized crime has played in the sale of illegally copied DVDs, adding that film piracy has also begun to financially benefit what it called "terrorist groups." After citing several instances in which film piracy has funded "terrorism," notably through the Irish Republican Army and India's D-Company, the study outlines the Hizbullah-South American connection. (Alan note: to fund their anti_USA activities, various terrorist groups, including islamic iran operatives have set up in South America and in large numbers in Mexico with deep penetration in to the illigal drug trade and operations using existing channels and creating new ones. Notice the violent Mexican killings and increased beheadings of victims leaving corpses similar to those found in islamic executions. Some instances of beheadings are sprinkling up in other South American nations.) http://www.cbsnews.com/track/rss/blogs/2009/03/04/monitor/entry4842881.shtml?CMP=OTC-RSSFeed&source=RSS&attr=InternetTerrorMonitor_4842881 Al Gurabaa organization distributed a new nine-page illustrated manual for the preparation of Ammonium Nitrate using ammonium, sugar and wood dust. Meanwhile, a member of the same forum using the alias "Song of Terror" posted an entire library of bomb-making books including "Professional Homemade Cherry Bombs," "The Manual of Explosives, Military Pyrotechnics and Chemical Warfare Agents," as well as "Death by Deception," which is a book with schematics and descriptions for booby-trapped talking teddy bears and toilet paper. Islam bus ads sponsored by CAIR and ICNA roll into San Francisco by zombie San Franciscans have recently been finding themselves in the uncomfortable position of riding around on public buses plastered with the words "ISLAM - Submission to God." (Meaning Allah, not YOUR God). I say "uncomfortable" because San Francisco is famously amongst the most secular and non-religious cities in the nation. But there has been nary a peep of comment or protest about these ubiquitous in-your-face ads, which are shown here in photos taken on March 2 in San Francisco. Such was not the case a few weeks ago in Ft. Lauderdale, however, which is one of the cities where the ads first appeared on buses. As reported in the Miami Herald, Fort Lauderdale mayor Jim Naugle joined a protest against the same ad campaign. While the protest did not succeed in getting the ads removed, it highlighted the fact the the ads were co-sponsored by the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) — a fact which can be easily confirmed with a little research: The ads themselves link to www.whyislam.org, which states at the bottom of the page that it is a project of ICNA; ICNA’s local chapter has a page on its own site about creating the ISLAM ad campaign in San Francisco; that page also lists CAIR as a co-sponsor (along with many other Muslim groups); and CAIR’s own site "Calling Islam" has many photos, links, and press releases about the ad campaign on its home page. So there’s no question that the ads are an ICNA and CAIR co-project. Why is this noteworthy? Because ICNA is not your run-of-the-mill Muslim group, but rather is the North American branch of Jamaat-e-Islami, the fundamentalist Pakistani political party whose goal is the imposition of sharia law, and who are closely affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the primary fonts of Islamic fundamentalism in the modern world. ICNA’s mission statement on its own Web site says The goal of ICNA shall be to seek the pleasure of Allah through the struggle of Iqamat-ud-Deen (establishment of the Islamic system of life) as spelled out in the Qur’an and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad http://www.thebulletin.us/articles/2009/03/05/news/nation/doc49af75a26636e685218078.txt States Want To Claim Sovereignty By Michael P. Tremoglie, The Bulletin Thursday, March 05, 2009 Across the nation, states are rebelling against mandates issued by the federal government. Legislators in various states are introducing resolutions, or have already approved resolutions, declaring their state is a sovereign entity not subject to federal laws that are not specifically enumerated in the Constitution. Lawmakers in Tennessee, South Dakota, New Hampshire, Michigan, New Mexico, Virginia, Kentucky, Kansas, Arkansas, Minnesota, South Carolina, Texas, Missouri, Iowa, Montana, Washington, Oklahoma, Indiana, Georgia, Iowa and Arizona have already introduced such resolutions. The bills in South Carolina and Oklahoma have already passed their respective Houses and are pending in the state Senates.
