USA Soldiers Avert USA preemptive war on IRAN

Home » B-52 Incident
B-52 Nukes Headed for Iran, Not For Decommissioning: Airforce Refused
-- SPECIAL REPORT -- Air Force refused to fly weapons to Middle East theaterBy Wayne MadsenSept. 24, 2007Author's website: http://www.waynemadsenreport.com
WMR has learned from U.S. and foreign intelligence sources that the B-52 transporting six stealth AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles, each armed with a W-80-1 nuclear warhead, on August 30, were destined for the Middle East via Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

However, elements of the Air Force, supported by U.S. intelligence agency personnel, successfully revealed the ultimate destination of the nuclear weapons and the mission was aborted due to internal opposition within the Air Force and U.S. Intelligence Community.
Yesterday, the Washington Post attempted to explain away the fact that America's nuclear command and control system broke down in an unprecedented manner by reporting that it was the result of "security failures at multiple levels." It is now apparent that the command and control breakdown, reported as a BENT SPEAR incident to the Secretary of Defense and White House, was not the result of a command and control chain-of-command "failures" but the result of a revolt and push back by various echelons within the Air Force and intelligence agencies against a planned U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear and conventionalweapons.
The Washington Post story on BENT SPEAR may have actually been an effort in damage control by the Bush administration. WMR has been informed by a knowledgeable source that one of the six nuclear-armed cruise missiles was, and may still be, unaccounted for. In that case, the nuclear reporting incident would have gone far beyond BENT SPEAR to a National Command Authority alert known as EMPTY QUIVER, with the special classification of PINNACLE.

Just as this report was being prepared, Newsweek reported that Vice President Dick Cheney's recently-departed Middle East adviser, David Wurmser, told a small group of advisers some months ago that Cheney had considered asking Israel to launch a missile attack on the Iranian nuclear site at Natanz. Cheney reasoned that after an Iranian retaliatory strike, the United States would have ample reasons to launch its own massive attack on Iran. However, plans for Israel to attack Iran directly were altered to an Israeli attack on a supposed Syrian-Iranian-North Korean nuclear installation in northern Syria.

WMR has learned that a U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear and conventional weapons was scheduled to coincide with Israel's September 6 air attack on a reputed Syrian nuclear facility in Dayr az-Zwar, near the village of Tal Abyad, in northern Syria, near the Turkish border. Israel's attack, code named OPERATION ORCHARD, was to provide a reason for the U.S. to strike Iran. The neo-conservative propaganda onslaught was to cite the cooperation of the George Bush's three remaining "Axis of Evil" states -- Syria, Iran, and North Korea -- to justify a sustained Israeli attack on Syria and a massive U.S. military attack on Iran.

WMR has learned from military sources on both sides of the Atlantic that there was a definite connection between Israel's OPERATION ORCHARD and BENT SPEAR involving the B-52 that flew the six nuclear-armed cruise missiles from Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota to Barksdale. There is also a connection between these two events as the Pentagon's highly-classified PROJECT CHECKMATE, a compartmented U.S. Air Force program that has been working on an attack plan for Iran since June 2007, around the same time that Cheney was working on the joint Israeli-U.S. attack scenario on Iran.

PROJECT CHECKMATE was leaked in an article by military analyst Eric Margolis in the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper, the /Times of London/, is a program that involves over two dozen Air Force officers and is headed by Brig. Gen. Lawrence Stutzriem and his chief civilian adviser, Dr. Lani Kass, a former Israeli military intelligence officer who, astoundingly, is now involved in planning a joint U.S.-Israeli massive military attack on Iran that involves a "decapitating" blow on Iran by hitting between three to four thousand targets in the country. Stutzriem and Kass report directly to the Air Force Chief of Staff, General Michael Moseley, who has also been charged with preparing a report on the B-52/nuclear weapons incident.

Kass' area of speciality is cyber-warfare, which includes ensuring "information blockades," such as that imposed by the Israeli government on the Israeli media regarding the Syrian air attack on the alleged Syrian "nuclear installation." British intelligence sources have reported that the Israeli attack on Syria was a "true flag" attack originally designed to foreshadow a U.S. attack on Iran. After the U.S. Air Force push back against transporting the six cruise nuclear-armed AGM-129s to the Middle East, Israel went ahead with its attack on Syria in order to help ratchet up tensions between Washington on one side and Damascus, Tehran, and Pyongyang on the other.

The other part of CHECKMATE's brief is to ensure that a media "perception management" is waged against Syria, Iran, and North Korea. This involves articles such as that which appeared with Joby Warrick's and Walter Pincus' bylines in yesterdays /Washington Post/. The article, titled "The Saga of a Bent Spear," quotes a number of seasoned Air Force nuclear weapons experts as saying that such an incident is unprecedented in the history of the Air Force. For example, Retired Air Force General Eugene Habiger, the former chief of the U.S. Strategic Command, said he has been in the "nuclear business" since 1966 and has never been aware of an incident "more disturbing."

Command and control breakdowns involving U.S. nuclear weapons are unprecedented, except for that fact that the U.S. military is now waging an internal war against neo-cons who are embedded in the U.S. government and military chain of command who are intent on using nuclear weapons in a pre-emptive war with Iran.

CHECKMATE and OPERATION ORCHARD would have provided the cover for a pre-emptive U.S. and Israeli attack on Iran had it not been for BENT SPEAR involving the B-52. In on the plan to launch a pre-emptive attack on Iran involving nuclear weapons were, according to our sources, Cheney, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley; members of the CHECKMATE team at the Pentagon, who have close connections to Israeli intelligence and pro-Israeli think tanks in Washington, including the Hudson Institute; British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, a political adviser to Tony Blair prior to becoming a Member of Parliament; Israeli political leaders like Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu; and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, who did his part last week to ratchet up tensions with Iran by suggesting that war with Iran was a probability. Kouchner retracted his statement after the U.S. plans for Iran were delayed.

Although the Air Force tried to keep the B-52 nuclear incident from the media, anonymous Air Force personnel leaked the story to /Military Times/ on September 5, the day before the Israelis attacked the alleged nuclear installation in Syria and the day planned for the simultaneous U.S. attack on Iran. The leaking of classified information on U.S. nuclear weapons disposition or movement to the media, is, itself, unprecedented. Air Force regulations require the sending of classified BEELINE reports to higher Air Force authorities on the disclosure of classified Air Force information to the media.

In another highly unusual move, Defense Secretary Robert Gates has asked an outside inquiry board to look into BENT SPEAR, even before the Air Force has completed its own investigation, a virtual vote of no confidence in the official investigation being conducted by Major General Douglas Raaberg, chief of air and space operations at the Air Combat Command.

Gates asked former Air Force Chief of Staff, retired General Larry Welch, to lead a Defense Science Board task force that will also look into the BENT SPEAR incident. The official Air Force investigation has reportedly been delayed for unknown reasons. Welch is President and CEO of the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA), a federally-funded research contractor that operates three research centers, including one for Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President and another for the National Security Agency. One of the board members of IDA is Dr. Suzanne H. Woolsey of the Paladin Capital Group and wife of former CIA director and arch-neocon James Woolsey.

WMR has learned that neither the upper echelons of the State Department nor the British Foreign Office were privy to OPERATION ORCHARD, although Hadley briefed President Bush on Israeli spy satellite intelligence that showed the Syrian installation was a joint nuclear facility built with North Korean and Iranian assistance. However, it is puzzling why Hadley would rely on Israeli imagery intelligence (IMINT) from its OFEK (Horizon) 7 satellite when considering that U.S. IMINT satellites have greater capabilities.

The Air Force's "information warfare" campaign against media reports on CHECKMATE and OPERATION ORCHARD also affected international reporting of the recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution asking Israel to place its nuclear weapons program under IAEA controls, similar to those that the United States wants imposed on Iran and North Korea. The resolution also called for a nuclear-free zone throughout the Middle East. The IAEA's resolution, titled "Application of IAEA Safeguards in the Middle East," was passed by the 144-member IAEA General Meeting on September 20 by a vote of 53 to 2, with 47 abstentions. The only two countries to vote against were Israel and the United States. However, the story carried from the IAEA meeting in Vienna by Reuters, the Associated Press, and Agence France Press, was that it was Arab and Islamic nations that voted for the resolution.

This was yet more perception management carried out by CHECKMATE, the White House, and their allies in Europe and Israel with the connivance of the media. In fact, among the 53 nations that voted for the resolution were China, Russia, India, Ireland, and Japan. The 47 abstentions were described as votes "against" the resolution even though an abstention is neither a vote for nor against a measure. America's close allies, including Britain, France, Australia, Canada, and Georgia, all abstained.

Suspiciously, the IAEA carried only a brief item on the resolution concerning Israel's nuclear program and a roll call vote was not available either at the IAEA's web site -- www.iaea.org -- or in the media.

The perception management campaign by the neocon operational cells in the Bush administration, Israel and Europe was designed to keep a focus on Iran's nuclear program, not on Israel's. Any international examination of Israel's nuclear weapons program would likely bring up Israeli nuclear scientist Mordechai Vanunu, a covert from Judaism to Christianity, who was kidnapped in Rome by a Mossad "honey trap" named Cheryl Bentov (aka, Cindy) and a Mossad team in 1986 and held against his will in Israel ever since.

Vanunu's knowledge of the Israeli nuclear weapons program would focus on the country's own role in nuclear proliferation, including its program to share nuclear weapons technology with apartheid South Africa and Taiwan in the late 1970s and 1980s. The role of Ronald Reagan's Director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency Ken Adelman in Israeli's nuclear proliferation during the time frame 1983-1987 would also come under scrutiny. Adelman, a member of the Reagan-Bush transition State Department team from November 1980 to January 1981, voiced his understanding for the nuclear weapons programs of Israel, South Africa, and Taiwan in a June 28, 1981 /New York Times/ article titled, "3 Nations Widening Nuclear Contacts." The journalist who wrote the article was Judith Miller. Adelman felt that the three countries wanted nuclear weapons because of their ostracism from the West, the third world, and the hostility from the Communist countries. Of course, today, the same argument can be used by Iran, North Korea, and other "Axis of Evil" nations so designated by the neocons in the Bush administration and other governments.

There are also news reports that suggest an intelligence relationship between Israel and North Korea. On July 21, 2004, New Zealand's /Dominion Post/ reported that three Mossad agents were involved in espionage in New Zealand. Two of the Mossad agents, Uriel Kelman and Elisha Cara (aka Kra), were arrested and imprisoned by New Zealand police (an Israeli diplomat in Canberra, Amir Lati, was expelled by Australia and New Zealand intelligence identified a fourth Mossad agent involved in the New Zealand espionage operation in Singapore). The third Mossad agent in New Zealand, Zev William Barkan (aka Lev Bruckenstein), fled New Zealand -- for North Korea.

New Zealand Foreign Minister Phil Goff revealed that Barkan, a former Israeli Navy diver, had previously worked at the Israeli embassy in Vienna, which is also the headquarters of the IAEA. He was cited by the /Sydney Morning Herald/ as trafficking in passports stolen from foreign tourists in Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia. New Zealand's One News reported that Barkan was in North Korea to help the nation build a wall to keep its citizens from leaving.
The nuclear brinkmanship involving the United States and Israel and the breakdown in America's command and control systems have every major capital around the world wondering about the Bush administration's true intentions.

Grant also notes: "I discovered, by observation in meetup.com (http://ronpaul.meetup.com/about/), that a city gets a white pin, when 3 or more people are waiting for a meetup group. When the pin is white, no one has to pay. You only have to pay if a meetup group is started (it is not mandatory to start a group if interest is expressed). The pin then changes to red.It would be nice to at least have a white pin for each of the countries that have Ron Paul supporters (Brazil, Romania, etc.). Unfortunately, I cannot find contact information for them on their websites, to tell them how to get it. http://www.dailypaul.com/node/2236

USAID, la Subversion Silenciosa en Bolivia y Venezuela

patria libre socialista perú <perupatrialibresoci alista@yahoo. es> escribió: A: patrialibre patria_libre@ yahoogroups. comFecha: Viernes,14 de Septiembre de 2007 21:06:37 Asunto: [patria_libre] Eva Golinger: USAID en Bolivia y Venezuela: La subversion silenciosaUSAID en Bolivia y Venezuela: la subversión silenciosa Eva GolingerBolpressEl gobierno de Estados Unidos ha casí perfeccionado un método de injerencia que logra penetrar e infiltrar todos los sectores de la sociedad civil en un país de interés económico y estratégico. En el caso de Venezuela, esta estrategia comenzó a tomar forma en el año 2002, con el aumento en financiamiento a sectores de la oposición através de la National Endowment for Democracy (NED) y la apertura de una oficina de transición (OTI) de la USAID en Caracas. Estos esfuerzos lograron consolidar un movimiento opositor en aquel momento, que a pesar de fracasar en el golpe de estado, alcanzó causar daños severos a la industria petrolera y la economía nacional através de un sabotaje económico y un "paro" de gerentes y empresarios.Luego de una división en la oposición, la estratégia reorientó su enfoque principal hacia las comunidades de bajos recursos, los sectores chavistas, la comunicación y las necesidades en el interior del país. La embajada de EEUU en Caracas abrió una seria de "cónsulados de satélite" (American Corners) en cinco estados del país, logrando - sin la autorización del Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores - tener una presencia oficial en regiones importantes para la visión energética de Washington. Esos estados, Anzoátegui, Bolívar, Lara, Monagas, y Nueva Esparta (Margarita), son ricos en petróleo, minerales y otros recursos naturales de los cuales Estados Unidos busca controlar. Estas sedes estadounidenses encontraron espacios dentro de asociaciones de abogados y alcaldías municipales de la oposición, y siguen funcionando como centros de propaganda y conspiración en contra de la revolución bolivariana.El trabajo de la USAID y su OTI en Venezuela ha protagonizado la profundizació n de la subversión contrarrevolucionar ia en el país. Hasta la fecha de junio 2007, más de 360 "becas" han sido otorgadas a organizaciones sociales, partidos políticos, comunidades, y proyectos políticos en Venezuela através del la Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI), empresa contratista de la USAID que abrió una sede el sector El Rosal de Caracas en junio 2002. Desde el centro de Caracas, la DAI/USAID ha dado más de 11.575.509.00 dólares a estos 360 grupos y proyectos en Venezuela bajo el programa, "Venezuela: Inciativas para la Construcción de Confianza" (VICC). La mayoría de los programas financiados por la DAI se enfocan (según sus materiales) en "el diálogo político, el debate público, la participación ciudadana y el entrenamiento y capacitación de líderes democráticos. "Organizaciones financiadas y participantes incluyen a Súmate, Primero Justicia, Un Nuevo Tiempo, la Alcaldía de Chacao, Liderazgo y Visión, Los del Medio, Convive, Transparencia Internacional, Instituto Prensa y Sociedad, Queremos Elegir, la Universidad Metropolitana, y otros grupos generalmente vinculados con el sector opositor.La USAID-OTI también financia a los partidos partidos políticos de la oposición, como Primero Justicia, Un Nuevo Tiempo, Acción Democrática, COPEI, MAS, entre otros, através de los brazos internacionales de los partidos estadounidenses: el Instituto Republicano Internacional (IRI) y el Instituto Democrático Nacional (NDI). Desde el año 2002, más de siete millones de dólares han sido invertidos en la "asistencia técnica" a estos partidos opositores en Venezuela por parte de la USAID junto con IRI y NDI.Los llamados "defensores de los derechos humanos" en Venezuela, u ONG (organización no gubermental) , reciben gran parte de su financiamiento através de la Freedom House, otro contratista de la USAID-OTI en Venezuela. Freedom House ha patrocinado eventos como "Las Amenazas a la Libertad de Expresión del Siglo XXI, con la participación de Marciel Granier, Presidente del canal de television golpista RCTV, junto con Karen Hughes, la Sub-secretaria de Estado para la Diplomacia Pública y los Asuntos Públicos (la oficina de propaganda del Departamento de Estado que supervisa la Voz de América y otros medios propagandisticas de Washington)Freedom House también financia a instituciones estadounidenses, como el Centro Internacional para el Conflicto No-Violento (ICNVC) que enseñan las técnicas de la "resistencia" de Gene Sharp, y han asesorado movimientos de jóvenes y estudiantes en Serbia, Ucrania, Georgia, Bielarrusia y Venezuela. Su presidente del 2003-2005 fue James Woolsey, ex-Director de la CIA, y su actual presidente, Peter Ackerman, es un banquero multi-millonario que ha patrocinado los "cambios de regímenes" en Serbia, Ucrania y Georgia através del Instituto Albert Einstein y su ICNVC. El hijo de Ackerman participó en el masacre del pueblo iraquí en Fallujah.El último contratista de la USAID en Venezuela es la Fundación del Desarrollo Pan-Americano (PADF), cuyo misión es "apoyar la sociedad civil". La PADF ha otorgado $937,079,00 a 14 ONGs venezolanas desde finales del 2006. Por ahora, los nombres de estes grupos se desconocen.Los últimos informes públicos de la USAID destacan que en agosto del 2007, organizaron una conferencia con 50 alcaldes de todo el país para tratar el tema de la "descentralizació n" y las "redes populares". Muy parecido parece este tema al proyecto que Leopoldo López, alcalde opositor de Chacao, esta promoviendo actualmente. El programa de la USAID-OTI en Venezuela promete continuar con sus esfuerzos de "fortalecer la sociedad civil y los partidos políticos," "promover la descentralizació n y los consejos municipales" y "entrenar los defensores de los derechos humanos". Ya el congreso estadounidense ha aprobado $3.6 millones de dólares para esta oficina en Venezuela para el año 2007-8, algo que indica que esta subversión seguirá creciendo y amenazando la revolución bolivariana.BoliviaPero Venezuela no es el único blanco de la subversión e injerencia estadounidense através de la USAID y su millones de dólares en financiamiento a movimientos opositores. En marzo del 2004, la USAID abrió otra Oficina hacia las inciativas de una transición (OTI) en Bolivia, para supuestamente ayudar "reducir las tensiones en zonas de conflicto social y apoyar al país con la preparación de los eventos electorales. " En este caso, la USAID contrató a la empresa estadounidense, Casals & Associates, Inc. (C&A) para manejar los más de 13.3 millones de dólares que ya han otorgado a 379 organizaciones, partidos políticos y proyectos en Bolivia. C&A juega el papel en Bolivia que hace la DAI en Venezuela, y tanto como la DAI, C&A es una empresa con grandes contratos con el Departamento de Defensa, el Ejército estadounidense, la Armada estadounidense, el Departamento de Energía, Broadcasting Board of Governance, la Voz de América, la Oficina para Transmisiones (de propaganda) a Cuba,el Departamento de Seguridad Interior, el Departamento de Estado, y muchos más. Hasta hoy, C&A ha trabajado ejecutando programas intervencionistas de las diferentes agencias de Washington en más de 40 páises del mundo, incluyendo Albania, Armenia, Bolivia, Colombia, República Dominicana, El Salvador, Guatemala, Madagascar, Malawi, México, Nicaragua, Panamá y Paraguay.En Bolivia, la USAID-OTI ha enfocado sus esfuerzos para combatir e influir sobre la Asamblea Constituyente, y el separatismo de las regiones ricas en recursos naturales, como Santa Cruz y Cochabamba. La mayoría de los 13.3 millones de dólares han sido dados a organizaciones y programas trabajando para "reforzar los gobiernos regionales", con la intención de debilitar el gobierno nacional de Evo Morales; "crear enlaces entre grupos indígenas y estructuras democráticas" ; "ofrecer oportunidades económicos y desarrollo comunitaria" ; "educación cívica para líderes emergentes"; y "la difusión de información". Los nobles temas de estos programas indican que Washington esta buscando socavar el poder nacional de Evo Morales en Bolivia, penetrar e infiltrar las comunidades de indígenas, que son la mayoría en el país, promover el modelo capitalista, e influir sobre los medios de comunicación, promoviendo propaganda pro-estadounidense, pro-capitalista y anti-socialista.Abiertamente, el programa de la USAID-OTI en Bolivia apoya a la autonomía de ciertas regiones, como Santa Cruz, Beni, Pando y Tarija, promoviendo entonces el separatismo y la desestablizació n del país y del gobierno de Evo Morales. También la National Endowment for Democracya (NED), otro órgano financiero de Washington que promueve la subversión e injerencia en más de 70 países del mundo, incluyendo a Venezuela, esta financiando grupos en regiones como Santa Cruz, que abogan por el separatismo. El actual embajador estadounidense en Bolivia, Philip Goldberg, es experto en el tema del separtismo, habiendo sido jefe de la misión estadounidense en la ex-Yugoslavia que fue dividido en dos países: Bosnia y Serbia, con la "ayuda" estadounidense.El gobierno de Evo Morales ya ha denunciado públicamente esta subversión através de la USAID en Bolivia, dando aviso al gobierno de Estados Unidos que tiene que obedecer las leyes del país u optar por irse. "La puerta esta abierta", declaró el vocero del gobierno bolivano en estos días, haciendo referencia a la injerencia estadounidense en su país.Sin embargo, Washington no se irá tan facilmente. Esta red de injerencia y subversión no sera tan sencilla de erradicar. El Presidente Chávez ha propuesta en su reforma constitucional un cambio al Artículo 67 que incluye una prohibición del financiamiento a grupos con fines políticos y a las campañas políticas por parte de entidades públicas o privadas del extranjero. Es esencial definir como se tratará el concepto de "fines políticos", porque en muchos casos, las ONG y grupos que trabajan por los derechos humanos intentarán evadir ser clasificados como organizaciones con motivos "políticos". Pero nadie puede negar que los derechos humanos es un tema fundamentalmente político, y es el terreno donde más hoy en día se esconde la subversión de Washington, usando las ONG como un escudo.Lo que si esta claro es la necesidad urgente de desarrollar estrategias para impedir y sacudir esta subversión en Venezuela, Bolivia y todos los países hermanos hoy en día bajo la mira del imperio, y que luchan para expresar su propia voluntad y soberanía.Eva Golinger es abogada e investigadora sobre el tema de la injerencia de EEUU en Venezuela y América Latina.
