Osama bin Laden death photos are popping up all over social media sites like twitter while the Obama administration has yet to release anything official.  At least, not yet.

We were all witnessed Saddam Hussein’s hanging, December 30, 2006. http://electroniciraq.net/news/bytopic/Saddam_Hussein_Put_to_Death_2771-2771.shtml

Iraqis watch the official broadcast of ousted dictator Saddam Hussein’s execution early this morning, 30 December 2006. Saddam Hussein was hanged inside one of his former torture centres today in the final act of a brutal 30-year tragedy that left the stage strewn with tens of thousands of corpses. (Photo: ALI YUSSEF/AFP/Getty Images)

Graphic images of Osama being shot in the head whether photoshopped or real are expected to be gross.  Like a destructive car wreck, we can’t help but look.   Might as well release an official OBL photographs to the world and put any doubts to rest that he might not be dead.

Do you think the photograph of the man falling from the Twin Tower had a choice in his lasting image?  We imagine that for the families, and really for all Americans it would be cathartic.

The desire to see photos includes not just those still healing from bin Laden’s terror but also bin Laden’s allies. The Taliban released a statement today saying they would not believe bin Laden is dead until they see proof or hear it from sources close to bin Laden.

The White House described the photos of bin Laden after the 40 minute firefight at his Pakistani compound as “gruesome” and could be viewed as inflammatory by some.

“The photos have to be released,” Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev., on ABC’s “Top Line” today. “Most definitely — to make sure we get rid of any conspiracy theorists that think that we didn’t take care of bin Laden.” http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/desire-osama-bin-laden-death-photo-grows/story?id=13516795

In the meantime,  here are a few death shots that can not be confirmed as being OBL.

This photograph is almost believable.  Pixellated on the bottom right of a soldiers arm blocking out identifying data, also if you zoom in it looks like there is a large knife under Osama’s arm.  It looks like there is either a star, Star of David or maybe a pentagram at the top circle of the knife.

There will always be doubters that the U.S. killed Osama and that he was already dead– since 2001. From, http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/2011/05/osama-death-fake.html
 
 Osama funeral article. (al-Wafd, December 26, 2001 Vol 15 No 4633 )

According to a partner at the American hospital in Dubai, Osama bin Laden was in the American hospital in Dubai in July 2001.  Osama bin Laden Osama’s doctor in the American Hospital in July 2001 was, reportedly, Dr Terry Callaway.  And the CIA station chief who met Osama in hospital in July 2001 was, reportedly, Larry Mitchell.

Maybe it was a fake death then, maybe it is a fake death now.  Could the State Department keep that kind of secret?  Who killed the Kennedy’s?
 
Trying to be light hearted in a very serious manner, we would make an Osama joke but they’ve probably all Bin done.  If you find others photos feel free to add them into the comment section or with a link.

Osama bin Laden is dead according to President Obama.  Let the conspiracy theory begin, after all a dead fish doesn’t swim upstream.  It also doesn’t have nine lives.

In a 2007 interview, Benazir Bhutto said in regards to threats and bombings that she had concern over, “Dealings with Omar Sheikh, the man who murdered Osama bin Laden.”  Maybe she meant to say the man who murdered FOR Osama???  Khalid Shaikh Mohammed claimed that he murdered Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal journalist who was abducted and killed in 2002 and is an admitted 9/11 plotter.  Khalid Shaikh Mohammed currently resides in Guantanamo.  Other reports have Osama dead in 2001 from kidney disease, while rumors abound that the U.S. killed him in a bombing raid in Tora Borra during the Bush years.  Now, it must be true-

On Sunday, May 1, 2011, President Obama said, “Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, and a terrorist who’s responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children…”

We find it absolutely inconceivable that Obama would make such an announcement without providing hard evidence, not just word of mouth.  Of course, we find it hard to believe that Obama spent millions of tax payer money to defend his certificate of live birth (COLB) as proof of being a natural born citizen- only to release what may, or may not be his actual birth certificate years later. Why can’t this administration provide actual proof- beyond a reasonable doubt? 

ABC says the Navy had a 99% DNA match to his deceased sister. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/pakistan/8488004/Osama-Bin-Ladens-body-identified-by-sisters-brain.html  That’s ironic considering he only had half sisters according to the fairly accurate Wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osama_bin_Laden#cite_note-newyorker.com-13 Whose DNA do they have?  Is it really his?  How the heck did they match it so fast in the field?  Is is possible that the DNA could be another sibling or relative?  An unnamed official said Bin Laden’s body was taken to the U.S.S. Carl Vinson where it was wrapped, and a prayer was said before his remains were “sent into the deep.”

Isn’t there some chance that a body will wash up on shore?  What countries refused to take his body?  What was the Pakistani military doing while the U.S. violated their airspace?  Were all the traffic control tower agents asleep?

In acting covertly, there were no foreigners to witness or dispute Osama’s death.  We’ve seen horrific photos of war and war crimes and yet no one in that entire million dollar compound had a smart phone to photograph what was happening?  Guess not. Surely if the events were being watched live by Obama and staff, it was recorded.  All electronic communication is, and becomes a record for the history books.

So far, only two people in Pakistan and apparently the world had a live accounting of what happened.  Meet Sohaib Atha  Sohaib Atha

ReallyVirtual: Man in Abottabad Accidentally Live-Tweets Raid That Killed Osama bin Laden http://hypervocal.com/news/2011/reallyvirtual-man-in-abottabad-accidentally-live-tweets-raid-that-killed-osama-bin-laden/

Never before has someone’s Twitter handle been so fitting.

Sunday marked a long night for Sohaib Atha, an “an IT consultant taking a break from the rat-race by hiding in the mountains with his laptops.” Because that IT consultant just happened to be hiding in Abottabad, Pakistan.

And he just happened to be on Twitter (@reallyvirtual), tweeting away at seeming random events in his adopted hometown at the same time that the U.S. military was engaging in what was a decade-in-the-making operation.

Today he will become known as the guy who, while live-tweeting a series of helicopter flypasts and explosions, unwittingly covered the U.S. forces’ helicopter raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound. He’s already done an interview with two Reuters reporters, the only ones who showed up at his door to talk to him in person.

Atha, 33, made note of his footnote in history on his blog. A nice timeline of Sohaib Athar’s tweets are also here. He wasn’t the only person who happened to be live-tweeting the news, @m0hcin was there too.

Here’s a few of his tweets.

His Final tweet on the moment was: “Bin Laden is dead. I didn’t kill him. Please let me sleep now.”

Any chance this guy was a plant?

@AKIANO Ice KARIM◄[Ka-RIIM]

Loads of B.S Sohaib Atha has no twitter in fact i doubt his existence. Waiting for the next edition of #Wikileaks to expose these lies.

Another theory from  http://www.sabotagetimes.com/life/osama-bin-laden-conspiracy-theorists-start-your-engines/

Bin Laden isn’t actually dead, but president Obama doesn’t know this. The right wing military types have faked the death of Bin Laden to prompt terror attacks within the United States the Bin Laden will help orchestrate. Why? To make Obama look weak in the build up to the next presidential election. I mean, now they know he’s a real yank they need something new to beat him with, yeah?

We hope OBL is dead once and for all and that the SEALS and Obama will take the credit.  Tomorrow’s news will be sad enough because Hamas has one more excuse, and so does America.

In Russia, Moscow’s Domodedovo airport was hit with a bomb explosion earlier today. Officials are saying that at least 30 people have been killed, and hundreds have been injured in a terrorist bombing attack.

“Russia Today” has raw video footage of the immediate aftermath of Russian airport bombing. WARNING, there are bodies strewn everywhere.  Also available at http://tinyurl.com/4p5my3k

This is not the first terrorist attack in Russia and likely it will not be the last.

Moscow suffered its worst attack in six years in March 2010 when two female suicide bombers from Russia’s volatile Dagestan region set off explosives in the metro, killing 40 people.  Russia is battling an Islamist insurgency in the Caucasus and deadly attacks on government and police officials in Dagestan as well as neighbouring Chechnya and Ingushetia are an almost daily occurrence.

In 2004, two suicide bombers were able to board planes at Domodedovo by buying tickets illegally from airport personnel.  The bombers blew themselves up in mid-air, killing all 90 people aboard the two flights. via http://www.iplaycod.com/forums/110-news-room/7862-moscow-airport-bomb.cod

Here is a time line of terror in Russia from the BBC News. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-12268662

• Oct 2010 – Six people killed as militants storm parliament in Chechnya, North Caucasus

• Mar 2010 – Suicide bombings at two Moscow metro stations kill 40 people; attack blamed on North Caucasus militants

• Nov 2009 – Bomb blast hits Moscow-St Petersburg luxury express train, killing 26; North Caucasus Islamist group claims responsibility

• Sept 2004 – Chechen rebels seize school in Beslan; 334 hostages, including many children, killed in ensuing battle

• Aug 2004 – Suicide bomber blows herself up at a Moscow metro station, killing 10

• Aug 2004 – Two Tupolevairport airliners blown up in mid-air by suicide bombers, killing 89 passengers and crew

Reports say the blast happened in the baggage reclaim area of Domodedovo airport

Airport spokeswoman Yelena Galanova is telling Interfax: “The explosion occurred in the international arrivals hall in a public area, to which people who are not passengers have free access.” 

FREE ACCESS, imagine that. Airports in the U.S.A. have free public access to arrival halls and baggage claim areas as well.   Take a look at the Las Vegas Airport for example.  Think any subway systems, any bus terminal, any department store.  Anyplace, anywhere.

McCarran International Airport Baggage Claim, just 3 miles from the Las Vegas Strip, 16 baggage claim carousels serve the airlines operating from Terminal 1.

The last time I few through Vegas, someone actually double checked to see if my baggage claim ticket matched the ticket on my suitcase and there were security personnel about, but there was plenty of public access to the area.  Smokers going in and out, people looking for friends, looking for a taxi, etc.  As in the case with the Moscow airport, a whole bunch of airports are set up the same way.

When entering the airport we are now patted down and x-rayed before boarding.  That in and of itself a whole rant.  The balance between security and “Amendment IV” of the Constitution that says: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause…”  The article, “Airport Degredations,” does a fine job of ripping the TSA to shreds at  http://sagharboronline.com/sagharborexpress/our-town/airport-degradations-11004

Whatever one’s belief on the pat down and security screening process, it should not be rocket science to have some additional security in place where there is public access.  Where are all those bomb sniffing dogs we keep hearing about anyway?    

The Political Commentator, http://politicsandfinance.blogspot.com/2011/01/in-light-of-moscow-airport-bombing.html makes this point-

Remember Chris Liu, the pilot based at San Francisco International Airport who caught heat from the TSA for posting a You Tube video of the security breaches at the airport? Remember how his license to carry a weapon was pulled?
Remember his concern that while pilots, flight attendants and passengers needed to go through security checkpoints, other airport personnel did not?

It’s a pretty good guess that some jack wad took a cab, walked right on in with no security check and blew himself up, killing and injuring innocents.  From BBC Live, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/9372022.stm

1655: Aviation expert Chris Yates backs the theory that suicide attacker was responsible for the attack, telling the BBC: “Quite an amount of shrapnel has been found in the arrivals hall – ball bearings and other things that could be packed into a suicide belt. We could be talking about a walk-in suicide attacker walking in and blowing themselves up at that critical moment.”

1722: Interfax quotes unnamed security sources as saying the head of the suspected bomber has been found: “We have found the head of a man of Arab appearance who is about 30 to 35 years old. He presumably set off the explosive device.”

1737: According to eyewitnesses quoted by Russian TV’s Vesti news programme, the bomber shouted “I’ll kill you all” before detonating his explosives

1740: Russian affairs analyst Andrei Ostalski tells BBC World Service: “The attack was so professionally engineered, it was done in such a brutally efficient way there are not too many groups in Russia that have this kind of practical experience of setting up such devices. So of course everybody is thinking about Chechen groups and insurgents who have been trained to do that kind of thing.”

Trained to do that kind of thing?  Despicable. 

The Moscow News, http://themoscownews.com/society/20110120/188351490.html?referfrommn  only days ago, reported:

Akhmed Azimov, chairman of the Moscow branch of the Russian Congress of Caucasus Peoples, told The Moscow News that his organisation is calling for a calm reaction to the nationalist riots, and is advising young Caucasus natives to stay away from counter-protests, such as the abortive attempt to hold a rally near Kievsky Station in mid-December.
“We’ve tried our best to calm down the youth from the North Caucasus – we’ve asked them not to react in any way to the provocations from the ultranationalist movements,” Azimov said.

The balance between safety and security is not going to go away anytime soon.  Prison Planet outlined it like this today, http://www.prisonplanet.com/americans-are-just-as-likely-to-get-struck-by-lightning-than-killed-by-terrorists.html

Roughly the same number as those unfortunately killed in today’s suicide bombing will die on America’s roads today, as well as tomorrow and in fact every day of the year – an average of 115 Americans are killed in car accidents daily, about one every 13 minutes, but you will never see it make the national headlines never mind gain global attention.

And why is that? Because every time we climb into our cars we subconsciously accept the price of freedom – which is the chance of being injured or killed. We take the same gamble every time we board an airplane, cascade down a ski slope or go up in a hot air balloon. We do so because the benefits of being a free human being are infinitely more rewarding than living in constant fear and demanding omnipresent “security,” which is never achievable anyway.

I wish the media would show a little freedom of the press, and show his cowardly blown off head.  That would be a deterrent.  

The BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-12269632 has a picture gallery from the Domodedovo airport should one care to witness more carnage from some deviant bastard.

Martin Luther King, “I have a Dream.”

And this will be the day — this will be the day when all of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning:
My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim’s pride,
From every mountainside, let freedom ring!
And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true.”  August 1963.

Is freedom ringing?

Criticism of color barely begins to describe what the American government did to pry into King’s personal life and so many others during the 50′s and 60′s. If you disagreed with the government, you were shall we say likely to have been, ‘looked after.’  Is it any different today?

From the Church Final Report-http://www.icdc.com/~paulwolf/cointelpro/churchfinalreportIIIb.htm

From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to “neutralize” him as an effective civil rights leader. In the words of the man in charge of the FBI’s “war” against Dr. King:

No holds were barred. We have used [similar] techniques against Soviet agents. [The same methods were] brought home against any organization against which we were targeted. We did not differentiate. This is a rough, tough business. 1

The FBI collected information about Dr. King’s plans and activities through an extensive surveillance program, employing nearly every intelligence-gathering technique at the Bureau’s disposal. Wiretaps, which were initially approved by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, were maintained on Dr. King’s home telephone from October 1963 until mid-1965; the SCLC headquarter’s telephones were covered by wiretaps for an even longer period. Phones in the homes and offices of some of Dr. King’s close advisers were also wiretapped. The FBI has acknowledged 16 occasions on which microphones were hidden in Dr. King’s hotel and motel rooms in an “attempt” to obtain information about the “private activities of King and his advisers” for use to “completely discredit” them.

King spoke about the “Security of Justice,” and in this era of terrorism, it gives new meaning to the balance of security and justice.

COINTELPRO inserted spies into Martin Luther King Jr.’s inner circle to report on all his movements and activities, and it effectively destroyed the Black Panther Party by encouraging armed action against other black nationalist groups, smear campaigns against key members and outright targeted attacks. The result was that the group became splintered and the rest of the country didn’t take them seriously as a political force.

Even though COINTELPRO activities were exposed and banned by the ’70s, we still see little baby COINTELPRO efforts pop up today, like when the FBI targeted “domestic terrorist organizations” like Greenpeace and PETA along with evil Quakers. Or when one Obama adviser suggested infiltrating conspiracy theory message boards with secret agents who would discredit “false conspiracy theories about the government.” Because apparently, people on conspiracy theory message boards would never appreciate the irony.  Read more: http://www.cracked.com/article_18955_6-crackpot-conspiracy-theories-that-actually-happened_p2.html#ixzz1BEapsUlg

In 2011, where do we find the balance between privacy and security?  Was Dr. King really a threat? To what, to whom?  Is Assange of WIKI leaks fame a rapist, terrorist, journalist?  Facebook and Social Media certainly provide the opportunity for anyone or government to track your whereabouts.

Cookies used to be about sugar and flour, they are now about leaving a trail of crumbs on which websites you have visited.  How fast we learned about Jared Loughner and his erratic rants on YouTube, MySpace, etc. Here are just a few examples http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2011/01/08/giffordsshotpalin/.

Is it so humiliating to get felt up in the airport security line for the greater good? Tough call.  On the one hand, maybe an inspection of my, “junk” is a deterrent to evil shitheads.  On the other hand it seems to be a violation of the 4th Amendment, when there is no probable cause or reasonable suspicion of criminal activity.   More insulting, is that an airplane cargo hold likely gets less of an inspection than my junk.  Go figure.

Back to MLK.  We had the day off, schools and banks closed.  Many lived the American dream being good capitalists and spent the day at the mall using traceable debit and credit cards, facebooking our locations, tweeting the day away, going about our business while someone somewhere, if they really cared ran COINTELPRO on you.  Too bad someone didn’t connect the dots fast enough to Arizona to prevent the shooting spree.  Too bad someone didn’t connect the dots before the events of 911.  Maybe they did.

Even though COINTELPRO was supposed to have ceased long ago, both the Bush and Obama administrations have likely been utilizing what we’ll call, large scale information manipulation and monitoring.  Cass Sunstein heads up the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, where he oversees policy relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cass_Sunstein

From Glenn Greenwood at Salon,http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2010/01/15/sunstein :

Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.”  He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging (on the ground that those who don’t believe government sources will be more inclined to listen to those who appear independent while secretly acting on behalf of the Government).

Whatever one wants to call intelligence these days, someone smart enough, if they wanted to:  knows where you are, what you are doing, what books you have bought on your Kindle or Amazon accounts, the books you have borrowed from the library, can find your address and phone number on Google, identify your computers IP address, knows what products you buy from your frequent shopper cards, can predict what your behavior might be, what memberships you may have in the NRA or YMCA, what your political party affiliation is, and on and on.

Are you old enough to remember “the party line, ” phone calls where you shared phone lines?  One could listen in, and someone could listen to you so you had to watch what you might say about Mrs. Spillane and Mr. DeLuca down the street.  Privacy was paramount. 

What privacy we don’t give away today, someone tomorrow can sure find out.   Were MLK alive today, we wonder if he would champion civil liberties as much as he did civil rights.  

Let freedom ring.

As Arizona’s immigration policy does what the federal government won’t, The Department of Homeland Security has now declared a Terror Alert along the Mexico U.S. border.

The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/26/terror-alert-mexican-border/

It is akin to an all points bulletin and searching for a needle in a haystack.  While your looking for terrorists would you mind stopping a few of those Mexican illegal immigrants who are still flocking to border states like Arizona and Texas. Obama and other elected officials have publicly admitted to not reading the bill, yet cry wolf and ignore the problems.

An administration official confirmed to Fox News that Obama plans to deploy the National Guard troops as needed.  Mr. President, with all due respect, “as needed” would be right the frig now.  Sending some 1,200 troops is a flea on a camel’s ass- insignificant.

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., said he’s heard that “the 1,200 border patrol troops are, in effect, desk jobs.” “They aren’t boots on the ground at the border,” he said, adding that “they were not intended to be deployed to the border.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/05/25/obama-deploy-national-guard-troops-mexico-border/

Will the National Guard be stationed right on the line, with bullets in their guns and the authority to defend themselves? Almost certainly not. The border is a “combat zone,” says T.J. Bonner, head of the Border patrol agents’ union, too dangerous even for Border Patrol.  http://usactionnews.com/2010/05/americans-fleeing-border-invasion-obama-dithers/

It has gotten so bad that Americans are leaving fleeing their homes to get away from the border.

The fence building has stopped. 

Farmers are being killed on there own lands.  Robert Krentz and his dog died while sitting in his all terrain vehicle by an illegal immigrant who escaped back to Mexico.  http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/sheriff_tells_border_town_218.html 

Police officers are being shot.

Pinal County sheriff’s Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle Friday afternoon.

Villar says the deputy was doing smuggling interdiction work and found bales of marijuana in the desert. He then encountered five suspected illegal immigrants, two armed with rifles, and was shot. http://hotair.com/archives/2010/04/30/arizona-deputy-shot-with-ak-47-by-suspected-illegal-immigrant/

Shot by an AK-47.  I doubt the police or any farmer is packing an AK-47 for protection and enforcement. Don’t go and blame the 2nd amendment and gun retailers.

Bill McMahon, deputy assistant director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, revealed last July that of the 100,000 weapons recovered by Mexican authorities during their drug war with the cartels, only 18,000 were determined to have been manufactured, sold, or imported from the United States. http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/he-didnt-just-lie-about-arizona-calderon-fibbed-about-assault-weapons-too/?singlepage=true

We’ve got the war on drugs, war on terror, war in Afghanistan, war in Iraq and a czar for everything except the U.S. Mexican border and the Deepwater Horizon Oil Clean up.  Oh wait, we don’t need another czar, we need a President who does something to fix the problems. NOW.

We asked again where is our commander-in-chief?  Hanging out in Chicago this Memorial Day weekend.  http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/05/26/national-guard-not-immigration-border-patrol/

We are getting the “The change you can believe in,” alright.  Changes like the President of the United States of America acquiescing to a foreign leader’s interference in the affairs of sovereign Arizona and bowing to Kings and Queens.  He is holding his first press conference in over a year later today. http://voices.washingtonpost.com/postpartisan/2010/05/what_obama_has_to_do_at_todays.html

The Modular Aerial Spray System on Air Force Reserve Command C-130 aircraft

The President just finished  a brief tour of touchy feel good town hall type visits to places like Youngstown, Ohio. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/05/18/obamas_remarks_on_the_economy_in_youngstown_105631.html Home of the U.S. Air Force Reserve C-130 Hercules of the 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, this is the only base in America that has aerial chemical sprayers.  Yes, chemtrails.

These planes are being loaded with dispersants to quell the oil spill in the Gulf.  Obama is scheduled to visit New Orleans on Friday, but his handlers may alter his plans due to the area being, ” hazardous to his health.”

The U.S. Coast Guard has pulled commercial fishing boats from oil cleanup efforts in Breton Sound off the Louisiana coast after several people became ill.  The Coast Guard says crew members on three vessels reported nausea, dizziness, headaches and chest pains Wednesday afternoon. Four people were hospitalized, including one who was flown to a hospital.

The Coast Guard told all 125 commercial vessels that were helping clean up spilled oil to return to shore. Medical workers evaluated the crew members as a precaution.  Breton Sound is about 30 miles southeast of New Orleans. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/05/27/coast-guard-pulls-fishing-boats-breton-sound-crew-members-cleaning-oil-sick/?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a4:g4:r5:c0.000000:b0:z5

While in Youngstown, Obama said, “..sometimes in Washington, everybody is spending all their time arguing about politics and you lose track of the folks who sent you there in the first place. And so it’s important for me to meet you directly and hear your concerns and your hopes and your dreams.”

Volcanic Ash Predition, U.S.A.?

Iceland’s Volcanic Ash Dust Cloud Heading to North America, is Martial Law Coming With it?

The volcanic ash cloud forecast from eruptions from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier looks to have the ash cloud heading toward the eastern part of Canada and perhaps the eastern coast of the U.S.A. depending on weather patterns.  “Another setback came on Monday evening for millions of stranded passengers as Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano sent a fresh cloud of ash 15,000 feet into the air. Amid travel concerns, some flights resumed on Tuesday.” http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/30555/amid-worsening-ash-cloud-situa.asp

If the volcano’ s dust reaches the U.S. can you imagine the chaos of closed airspace?

The Royal Navy was dispatched in the U.K to help stranded passengers, even as Fox is reporting that the Brits are re-opening some airspace.  You can follow some of the planes in real time here http://www.radarvirtuel.com/.  This seems a pretty stupid idea to give terrorists just one more tool to track airspace, none-the-less there it is- and here’s just one example of one flight that made it safely with all data for the world to see-

Flight Number : KLM643
Company : KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
ICAO Hex Code : 484174
Reg Code : PH-BFW
Model : Boeing – B747-406 (M)
Departure : AMS – Amsterdam, Schiphol – Netherlands
Arrival : JFK – New York, John F. Kennedy International – USA


Last Message : 18:34:47 UTC
Latitude : 51.77298
Longitude : 4.3618
Altitude : 6454 m – 21175 ft
Ground Speed : 851 km/h – 529 mph – 460 knots
Vertical Speed : 624 m/min – 2047 ft/min (CLIMB)
Squawk : 2114
Heading : 190º

 

Really does, anyone outside of air traffic need to know the exact location of a plane?  Hell, why not publish the passenger manifest list while you are at it? Jerks.  Taking it one farther is http://www.libhomeradar.org/ where not only can you track, but see photos and get specs on planes.

libhomeradar

easy collect aircraft information

libhomeradar is a library written in plain C which makes the communication with the Kinetic Avionic SBS-1 box and the AirNav Systems RadarBox very easy. 

In the U.S.A. we have  http://flightaware.com/live/ currently-  

Tracking 3,451 airborne aircraft with 107,533,877 total flights in the database.
FlightAware has tracked 45,374 arrivals in the last 24 hours.

You can also text to: “GOOGLE” then, type in the call sign of the aircraft you are looking for. “UAL472″ for example or track all active flights on Google Earth at http://fboweb.com/antest/ge/geALLFLIGHTS.kmz.

Whoa.  That’s just wrong for air traffic safety.  Has Obama nominated anyone to head up the Federal Aviation Administration yet? http://www.faa.gov/ It looks like lobbyist J. Randolph Babbitt is up for the job. http://www.capecodtoday.com/blogs/index.php/2009/04/18/alliance-lobbyist-named-to-head-the-faa?blog=109

Implications of closing U.S. airspace would go far up to food chain and well into Homeland Security.  Would President Obama dispatch all those military personnel already on active duty on U.S. Soil, which is already a clear violation of  the Constitution?  Recall, the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/martial-law-under-public-health-emergency/

On April 13, 2010 The Conservative Examiner wrote:

In October of this year, one month prior to the November midterm elections, a special army unit known as ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ will be ready for deployment on American soil if so ordered by the President.

The special force, which is the new name being given to the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, has been training at Fort Stewart, Georgia and is composed of 80,000 troops.

According to the Army Times,

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.The key phrase is ‘may be called upon to help with civil unrest.’  http://www.examiner.com/x-37620-Conservative-Examiner~y2010m4d13-Special-army-unit-ready-to-be-deployed-on-American-soil-just-before-Nov-elections

You can follow the 3rd brigade on twitter or facebook from http://www.stewart.army.mil/units/1BCT/home.asp

Besides the ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ capability, putting on a legitimate face to XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force does not preclude them from being a militia capable of effectively supporting state and federal emergency response units. Federal response units—can you say FEMA? More on the American police here http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/02/american-police-force-national-force-aim/.

Americans, by and large are civil peaceful beings- but being told that airspace is being restricted or closed due to an invisible ash cloud, well that might just put the loonies over the edge.   

Would governors declare states of emergency calling out the national guard?  Ah, but the The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007  later repealed by the Insurrection Act gives the President the ability to declare a public emergency and station the military anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities.  You may recall no one has rescinded the state of emergency from the false H1N1 pandemic.

When it snowed in D.C., the government for all intents and purposes shut down- would it again if the ash cloud is so prominent that it inhibits air travel and is caustic to breath?  As if we don’t already have enough fluoride and silica in our diets.  And, too much salt as so the nanny government, besides owning banks and car manufacturers is going to work with the food industry to gradually reduce sodium in everything from soup to nuts http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2010/04/20/US-planning-to-reduce-salt-in-food/UPI-37521271766209/  That’s what I call nutty!

At least Europe has some alternative transportation options by ferry or train, not so much in the States.  “Washington – including the president – is stalling on critical legislation that maps the way for getting people and goods from here to there: the transportation bill. The bill sets policy on roads, bridges, mass transit, and freight movement for six years. It was supposed to be reauthorized last year, but the White House discouraged that because it wanted to focus on health-care legislation.http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/the-monitors-view/2010/0419/Iceland-volcano-ash-cloud-At-least-Europe-has-a-backup-in-trains-ferries-buses

The BBC reports that there is ‘zero tolerance’ on ash. ” ‘No tolerance’ rule for volcanic ash” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8629609.stm Is there a tolerance level in Canada or the U.S.?  At least Iceland and Europe can rely on, ” The Nuclear Accident Model (NAME) was originally developed after the nuclear accident in 1986 at Chernobyl, which highlighted the need for a capability to predict the spread and deposition of radioactive material released into the atmosphere. The model has continued to be developed and is now applied to a wide range of atmospheric pollution problems, ranging from emergency responses to daily air-quality forecasts. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/04/19/ash-cloud-models-overrated-a-word-on-post-normal-science-by-dr-jerome-ravetz/

After the Haiti quake, the U.S.S. Comfort arrived, along with 10,000 U.S. Military personnel to offer a a peaceful restoration.  But, “As the U.S. military’s mission in Haiti draws to a close, about 1 million Haitians remain homeless, said the former top U.S. military commander in Haiti…The roughly 2,200 troops now in Haiti are expected to leave in June”  http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=69459

What’s the big rush to get our troops out of Haiti so fast? 

And, “The top military official in Iraq said the president plan for troop withdrawal is proceeding as scheduled.
 The Associated Press reports that Gen. Ray Odierno confirms that 45,000 soldiers will have left Iraq by the end of August unless a dramatic security concern arises in the area.”  http://www.s2smagazine.com/node/2792

There are 1,084,548 troops on active duty in the United States and its territories according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deployments_of_the_United_States_Military Ironically we have no troops in Iceland as The Keflavik Naval Air Station was closed.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/03/16/AR2006031601846.html

Eyjafjallajokull volcano 20th of April 2010, am

“It is just skirting into the Newfoundland area over the next 12 to 18 hours,” Syvret told Reuters. “It doesn’t look as if it is going to get much further west than that, just on the coast and a little further inland.”  Newfoundland, on Canada’s Atlantic seaboard, is the closest part of North America to Iceland’s erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano.http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE63I5OR20100419?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a49:g43:r1:c0.248206:b33070260:z0

It is unlikely that America will be thrown into chaos over this ash cloud. What catastrophe befalls us next is any one’s guess.  Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Nuclear Attack, Anthrax, Biological Weapons, an invasion by foreign troops or aliens? 

With a million troops awaiting action, in the meantime the least they could do is patrol the borders.

“The scale of this crisis is now greater than 9/11 when US air space was closed for three days. In lost revenue alone, this is costing the industry at least $200 million a day. On top of that, airlines face added costs of extra fuel for re-routing and passenger care – hotel, food and telephone calls.”  said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA’s director general and CEO. 

You can read the rest of Bisignani complaints here http://aviationblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2010/04/european-union-conferring-on-w.html.

You sir, are a jackass. 

Inconvenience caused by a volcanic ash, is not a target terrorist attack.

No one knows with 100% of accuracy if a plane will be impacted by ash depending on its flight path or elevations.  If one falls from the sky due to a rush to judgement, I guess he will know.

Maybe he is tired of looking at the mostly clear skies? Maybe the conspiracy of an invisible cloud has passed?  Maybe the reports by NATO’s F-16′s showing engine damage aren’t enough to convince him to wait a few days? Maybe he’s just ignorant?

I know with 100% accuracy that the nearly 4,000 or so people who lost their lives on September 11, would love to be stuck sitting alive somewhere waiting for a ride home.  Maybe Bisignani doesn’t know anyone on the list who died?  Did you?http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2001/memorial/lists/by-name/index.html

That one day changed forever how the world looks at everything from airport security to terrorism.  It took civil liberties away in the name of safety so much so, that many of the U.S. airports now require an X-ray of your body, let alone your luggage. 

To make a comparison to the quiet skies on the days following 9/11 is one thing.  To compare financial devastation and inconvenience in an effort to mitigate a solution, is absurd.

Just whose fault is it that there was no emergency volcano ash plan in place?  Giovanni Bisignani, IATA’s director general and CEO, that’s who.

Body Scanners

The Dutch government says it will immediately begin using full body scanners on flights to the United States to prevent future terrorist attacks like the Christmas Day attempt by a young Nigerian. http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/article/20091230/NEWS01/312300004/1001/NEWS

So what’s been the hold up in America?  There is no head of the TSA, they are more worried about the Union than security, and the ACLU and other civil liberties groups are having a hissy fit.  For one of the first times I can ever recall, I am all for more government regulating who gets to fly and am willing to give up some privacy to ensure the safety of air travel.  OMG, is it the year end holiday brain mush that just wrote more government??

 

From 2004.  “The Bush administration has decided to scale back and delay the debut of a vast airline passenger screening program until after the presidential election, federal officials said yesterday. The decision comes after months of meetings with airline officials and lawmakers who pressed the administration to drop more controversial elements of the program, known as Computer Assisted Passenger Pre-Screening Program, or CAPPS II. ” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A53320-2004Jul15.html

For 6 years this technology has been out there, ready for use and could have prevented the uni-bomber and the underwear bomber from trying to blow up airplanes! 

On October 1, 2009 - “The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has revealed plans to install 150 body scanning machines for primary security screenings at airports across the country. The American Civil Liberties Union strongly opposes the expanded use of this invasive technology, which amounts to a virtual strip search and reveals strikingly graphic images of passengers’ bodies, including intimate medical details like colostomy bags or evidence of mastectomy. ….  By expanding the use of body scanning technology, the TSA is backing away from numerous assertions that it would use these machines only for secondary screenings. There are no laws or regulations limiting how the TSA uses these virtual strip searches, only policies they choose to adopt, and nothing to prevent the TSA from making it mandatory for all passengers to submit to these invasive and embarrassing searches, having their privacy stripped away in order to board a plane.

 The following can be attributed to Christopher Calabrese, ACLU Legislative Counsel for technology and privacy.

 “This new body scanning technology is a frontal assault on personal privacy, with virtual strip searches revealing private body parts and intimate medical details. This degree of examination amounts to a significant – and for some people humiliating – attack on the essential dignity of passengers that citizens in a free nation should not have to tolerate. Passengers expect privacy underneath their clothing and should not be required to display highly personal details of their bodies in order to fly.
via http://www.commondreams.org/newswire/2009/10/01-16

Having a scan seems more friendly than a body cavity search.  If you find it humiliating to have a body scan simply don’t get on a plane.  Drive or stay home, one more seat for someone else on these over booked flights.  Take all the pictures you want of me when I fly.  So what if I got a glass eye, a pacemaker, a big penis with piercings, man boobs, a fat ass, a bag to pee in or all of the preceding on my body, whatever.  Get over yourself, you are a human and only God is perfect.  All of us have some kind of weird thing about ourselves, none of us should have the capacity to blow up a plane over the non use of technology that can stop this from happening.  Mandatory or selective, this is one case where I could care less- so long as it prevents the plane my family is getting on from falling from the sky.

The Associated Press says that “At least 19 U.S. airports have the scanners,” at http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1963465,ohare-airport-full-body-scanners-security-122909.article noting that Chicago’s O’Hare will be getting them mid-year. 

I would prefer not to have my fat, x-ray-ed ass posted on the Internet though.  Some sort of deterrent for illicitly copying and distributing the photos should probably be in order, with penalties severe enough to serve as a deterrent.  I wonder who stores the scan at the end of the day, is it now a permanent record, would an agency need a search warrant to use it in a court of law, etc., still some questions linger.  

I do see how the Pre-screening programs could be opportunities to find criminals.  Um, if that is a by product of better technology- so what?  Behind thousands on your child payments? A bad guy out on parole an not reporting?  Wanted on a felony?  Too frickin’ bad, don’t get anywhere near an airport unless you are a law abiding citizen.  Flying is a privilege not a right.   We’re not talking about an overdue library card or a bunch of parking tickets.  Look, finding criminals is not the intention behind scanning some one’s behind for problematic devices, but if it gets them away from being another potential public threat- then so be it. 

Take the extra billions in stimulus and stimulate the economy by making it safer.

Smile, someone takes your picture every time you walk into Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl’s, etc.  Got a Sam’s Club Card- your picture is on that.  Our local grocery store, in order to cash a payroll check, now requires not only a photograph but a fingerprint of two fingers, on two hands.  Every parent/grandparent/guardian/teacher and janitor at our local school is required to undergo a background check and be fingerprinted before walking in the door.  

If the private sector can match up your face to what you buy, to how often you visit, then the government ought to take every preventable measure to stop terrorism in it’s tracks  NOW, or hire the programmers at Wal-Mart to do it for them.

UPDATED August 5, 2010.  Now we know who stores the scan at the end of the day, the TSA!  The U.S. Marshals Service too. 

The TSA apparently requires all airport body scanners it purchases to be able to store and transmit images for “testing, training, and evaluation purposes.” (PDF)

A 70-page document (PDF) showing the TSA’s procurement specifications, classified as “sensitive security information,” says that in some modes the scanner must “allow exporting of image data in real time” and provide a mechanism for “high-speed transfer of image data” over the network.

The TSA maintains that body scanning is perfectly constitutional: “The program is designed to respect individual sensibilities regarding privacy, modesty and personal autonomy to the maximum extent possible, while still performing its crucial function of protecting all members of the public from potentially catastrophic events.”

Peak air travel season, and the U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY Transportation Security Administration changing the aviation rules for passengers, at least until December 30, 2009.

On Dec. 25, 2009, an individual on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253 set off a device and was subdued by passengers and crew. TSA wishes to acknowledge the heroic efforts of those individuals.  {sic- did they forget his name?}

As a result of this incident, TSA has worked with airline and law enforcement authorities, as well as federal, state, local, and international partners to put additional security measures in place to ensure aviation security remains strong. Passengers traveling domestically and internationally to U.S. destinations may notice additional screening measures. http://www.tsa.gov/press/happenings/dec25_guidance.shtm

New security measures introduced by the US Transport Security Administration for all flights into the US include pat-down searches at the airport gate, physical inspection of all bags and requiring passengers to stay in their seats without access to any personal items or overhead lockers for the final hour before landing.   http://www.smh.com.au/travel/travel-news/us-orders-body-searches-after-botched-airline-attack-20091228-lgxg.html  

So much to that little part in the Constitution that protects you from illegal search and seizure. 

The following is the complete text of the US DHS security directive as implemented by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) with text provided by Flying with Fish at http://boardingarea.com/blogs/flyingwithfish/2009/12/27/tsa-security-directive-sd-1544-09-06-the-fallout-from-nw253/

Someone did not do their job to prevent him from getting on the plane in the first place.  We got lucky this time, maybe next time someone will just shove something up their ass for an in-flight incident one hour before landing.  “Luckily, the explosive that was sewn into his underwear — and only caused a minor fire which passengers and crew were able to put out — is extremely hard to ignite. Pentaerythritol tetranitrate, or PETN, is among the “most powerful of explosives,” according to the Times, and was the same explosive that was smuggled aboard by the infamous (and also thwarted) 2001 “shoe bomber,” Richard Reid.  Read more: Averted Northwest Airlines Bomb Was Powerful, But Very Hard to Ignite — Daily Intel http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2009/12/averted_northwest_airlines_bom.html#ixzz0b0QS5Rcl  Wonder if he was wearing boxers or briefs?  Either way we hope his balls got burnt.

A day later, another man from Nigeria is arrested on the same flight 253 from Amsterdam.  The FBI claims the two incidents were not related but having locked himself in a bathroom for over an hour, someone finally broke the door down.  Note he did not have any luggage with him and http://www.debbieschlussel.com/14318/passengers-were-right-fbi-lied-about-second-man-are-they-lying-about-second-flight/ points our more irregularities in the story.

“Our system did not work in this instance,” she said on NBC’s “Today” show. “No one is happy or satisfied with that. An extensive review is under way.”

Profile away we say, check your lists a little better, even Santa knows who naughty and nice. “In a story that won’t surprise most, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has told the FBI that there are many young men just like him in Yemen waiting to attack the planes within or going to the United States.” http://chattahbox.com/us/2009/12/28/umar-farouk-abdulmutallab-tell-fbi-more-like-him-in-yemen/

I think the armed marshall’s will be hiring soon.

The 23-year-old Nigerian man who claimed ties to al-Qaeda was charged this Saturday with trying to destroy a Detroit-bound airliner, just a month after his father warned U.S. officials of concerns about his son’s religious beliefs.http://apnews.myway.com/article/20091227/D9CRDL300.html

Imagine the balls it takes to alert authorities to the possibility your own kid is an assassin http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=5226 saying , “According to the local newspaper “Leadership Nigeria” Umar Mutallab, former chairman of First Bank and father of the alleged terrorist, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, had alerted the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the INTERPOL and the Nigerian Intelligence Agency (NIA) to his son’s weird behavior, especially after he sent a disturbing text message from Yemen. Umar Jr relocated to Yemen by late October this year, had sent a curious text to his parents – according to the report.

His father notified not one, but three governments of his son’s odd behavior and possible threat to the U.S.  Did anyone pay attention?  Nope.  Imagine the sadness in his family. If anyone of the three were watching him shame on them for not thwarting this cowardice act.

23 years old.  23 and what do you think you know?  You don’t know shit, you little shit ass. He should have been out having a beer and chasing….well, whatever.

Abdulmutallab appeared on the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment database maintained by the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center, said a U.S. official who received a briefing. Containing some 550,000 names, the database includes people with known or suspected ties to a terrorist organization. However, it is not a list that would prohibit a person from boarding a U.S.-bound airplane. His name was added to the database in Novembers, according to an administration official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the investigation that is ongoing….  

Virginia-based group that monitors militant messages called attention Saturday to a Dec. 21 video recording from an Al-Qaida Counterterrorism operative in Yemen who warned of a looming bombing in the U.S.

Attempting to kill hundreds on a plane, in the skies, on the ground?  Just where does someone even get  pentaerythritol- the explosive?  Now this formerly wealthy prick can’t afford an attorney and my tax dollars and yours, by the grace of democracy are going to provide one for him. 

Just WTF is with our Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment database-that we never heard of until today.  There were unheeded warnings and texts days ahead of time?  Who runs the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment- TIDE  and Terrorist Identities group ? http://www.nctc.gov/docs/Tide_Fact_Sheet.pdf.  A bunch of but nutts who can not seem to correlate data between departments apparently.

Ringing any 9-11 bells?

From the classified TIDE database, an unclassified, but sensitive, extract is provided to the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Center, which compiles the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB). This database, in turn, is used to compile various watch lists such as the TSA’s No-fly list, State Department’s Consular Lookout and Support System, Homeland Security’s Interagency Border Inspection System, and FBI’s NCIC (National Crime Information Center) for state and local law enforcement. via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorist_Identities_Datamart_Environment

Throw in Flopping Aces, http://www.floppingaces.net/2009/12/27/napolitano-system-worked-even-tho-bomb-made-it-through-security/

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Sunday that the thwarting of the attempt to blow up an Amsterdam-Detroit airline flight Christmas Day demonstrated that “the system worked.”

Asked by CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” how that could be possible when the young Nigerian who has been charged with trying to set off the bomb was able to smuggle explosive liquid onto the jet, Napolitano responded: “We’re asking the same questions.”

Napolitano added that there was “no suggestion that [the suspect] was improperly screened.”

The system worked? You have to be joking. How Napolitano claimed it worked when a man was able to get a bomb on board a plane and almost set it off -were it not for a bad detonator and some heroic passengers?

 B I A T C H, YOU SHOULD BE FIRED. If for nothing else the disgraceful comment that the system worked.  IT FAILED.  YOU FAILED.

A half a million people made a list because they have some subjective hate for America and have presented some sort of evidence that they are willing to risk their lives in the process of killing Americans.  Some made this list in error- but this one asshole  gets on a plane to America and attempts detonation. 

How many on this TIDE database are boarding today?  Is it an Illuminati government pulling the strings for wars?  We now call bullshit.  There is no one but a bunch of disorganized government employees covering their ass just like in 911.  There may be the technology to read a license plate from space, know what kind and how many cigarettes you smoke and beers you drink, but if no one reports a terrorist driving the truck what use it is it.  Execute McVeigh before all the facts are in and it all goes away.  Except the memories.

“The president certainly has taken steps in his time in office to reorient our priorities as it comes to fighting that war on terror,” Gibbs told NBC. via http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jmFQzQ0FKifgsloXRVO9_Sym-U1g  REORIENT OUR PRIORITIES?  Give us a break.  Taking steps?  Baby steps perhaps.

Just sickening. 

God Bless America and God dangit:  if God doesn’t, somebody better step up to the plate to protect America NOW. Falling between the cracks is a pain in every one’s ass and puts us all at risk.  No amount of Tide is going to be able to clean up the spilled blood of innocent Americans.

Loving our country, just questioning those who run it.
