When Will They Ever Learn?

UPDATE from Wayne Madsen Reportwaynemadsenreport.com/

October 18, 2005 -- In a rare public announcement by the spokesman for CIA leak special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald, Randall Samborn said that if and when there are any announcements in the case, they will be made from Washington, not Chicago where Fitzgerald serves as U.S. Attorney for Northern Illinois. Samborn is the Public Information Officer for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Chicago. Fitzgerald has been detailed to Washington during his two and a half year investigation of the CIA leak matter. There is speculation that the announcements of indictments will come on Wednesday, October 19. The Grand Jury will be seated on Wednesday and its mandate is due to expire on October 28 unless it is extended, which a number of informed observers doubt will occur.

The Prissy Patriot will return Friday

Dear Readers, let's think about modern history for a moment. Think Korea, Vietnam, the killings of Martin Luther King, Robert and John Kennedy, Watergate and the Iran-Contra affair, 911 and now Iraq.

So how on earth did we get here? Prissy's head begins to ache just thinking about it! What a mess this same group has left us-this will be the largest mess yet...

They have run wild with their unrealistic, inhumane goals of conquest and unchecked power. Those in charge all knew better- as we have been down this road before.

But this is the first time they have left the American people at the edge of a precarious cliff and said "sorry, we cannot help you-you are on your own from here".

That was their contribution to America, whose rewards they have known more than most. Prissy dares not call them patriots, the selling out of ones country for the personal gain of an elite few is called treason.....they are the wretched few. For this they must be taken to task.

Prissy looks forward to hearing what Prosecutor Fitzgerald reveals. Prissy hears and will share with readers, if he kept his cards any closer to his chest, they would be in his underwear...It is said he has known the answers to his questions all along. And he is not a politician-he is a man of the law. Prissy puts him right up there with Batman...

The true representatives of the people should ask for monies to be returned that have been looted from our coffers. Assets can be seized and should be. There is no reason the American people should have to pay for this war. God knows military families have paid the highest price of all....for which they can never be justly compensated.

We can only give them a promise that there will be protections put in place, so this kind of war cannot happen again....

nydailynews.com/front/story/356858p-304125c.html New York Daily News- Cheney may be target of probe

Excerpt:Cheney's name has come up amid indications Fitzgerald may be edging closer to a blockbuster conspiracy charge - with help from a secret snitch.

"They have got a senior cooperating witness - someone who is giving them all of that," a source who has been questioned in the leak probe told the Daily News yesterday.

Cheney was questioned last year byprosecutors and has hired a private attorney, former colleague Terrence O'Donnell, who declined to comment when contacted by The News.

Cheney spokeswoman Lea Anne McBride only offered the standard canned response that her boss is cooperating.

Emphasis Prissy....Prissy here, still calling all whistleblowers who love their country more than this rouge regime....and may God Bless those who do.

AFP French press- afp.com/english/news/stories/051017191336.nizr0x3h.html Iraq delays charter result to audit figures

Excerpt:The delay came after the commission said six majority Shiite provinces in southern Iraq had voted by more than 90 percent in favor of the constitution, while two Sunni-dominated provinces appeared to have rejected the text, by 80 percent in Salaheddin and by 54 percent in Diyala.

The ballots were cast just days before former dictator Saddam Hussein was to stand trial on the first of what could be several cases of crimes against humanity.

A reminder of what Iraqis went through under Saddam came in the Kurdish city of Arbil, where the remains of 512 members of the Barzani tribe believed massacred by Saddam's regime were flown back from a mass grave found near the Saudi border in southern Iraq.

And this war has cost the people of Iraq -which was supposedly for their benefit-thousands more innocent civilian lives. Far more even, than did the brutalities of Saddam.

The Trinidad Guardian- guardian.co.tt/news1.html Port-of-Spain bombings probe-Government goes after Mr Big

Interesting excerpt: Manning told the House that explosions were not new to T&T.

“Mr Speaker, permit me to remind honourable members that it is not the first occasion, in my experience, that we have had a spate of bombings,” he said.

“Some may be too young to recall it. Some may not have been aware but in the late 80s there were a series of bombings in the country and at the last count, if I remember it well, there were about 40 bombs that exploded during that period of time.”

Seeking to make a connection with the scenario that existed during that period and the recent explosions, Manning recalled the oil boom of the 1970s and the oil price shock (when prices soared) in 1979, the result of hostilities between Iran and Iraq.

“Oil prices at that time had soared to US$40 a barrel plus settling down eventually to US$34 a barrel, the implication of it being at a time when our oil production was almost at peak, the country was the recipient of a lot of financial resources,” he said.

What an interesting pattern...there are conspiracy theories because there are conspirators...

Speaking of conspiracies...

earthisland.org/project/newsPage2.cfm?newsID=743&pageID=177&subSiteID=44 The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie -- Part 1 by Dr. David Ray Griffin-July 17, 2005

Excerpt: It is better to understand the two terms as referring to two types of lies: implicit and explicit. We have an explicit lie when the Report claims that the core of each of the Twin Towers consisted of a hollow steel shaft or when it claims that Vice President Cheney did not give the shoot-down order until after 10:10 that morning.

But we have an implicit lie when the Commission, in its discussion of the 19 alleged suicide hijackers, omits the fact that at least six of them have credibly been reported to be still alive, or when it fails to mention the fact that Building 7 of the World Trade Center collapsed.

Such omissions are implicit lies partly because they show that the Commission did not honor its stated intention "to provide the fullest possible account of the events surrounding 9/11." They are also lies insofar as the Commission could avoid telling an explicit lie about the issue in question only by not mentioning it, which, I believe, was the case in at least most instances.

How many lies are contained in The 9/11 Commission Report? I do not know. But, deciding to see how many lies I had discussed in my book, I found that I had identified over 100 of them. Once I had made the list, it occurred to me that others might find this summary helpful. Hence this article.

voltairenet.org/article30116.html9/11: New Evidence- Spanish Reporters Affirm no Aircraft Crashed into the Pentagon by Sandro Cruz

Excerpt:Cardeñosa also interviewed Mohamed Atta’s last flying instructor several times. He was Ivan Chirivella, a Spanish who immigrated to the United States to be a professional tennis player but ended up as a flying instructor. When Cardeñosa asked Chirivella his opinion about Atta’s piloting feat (crashing the Boeing into the Tower) Chirivella said that was impossible for Atta did not have the capacity to do such a maneuver, that when he quit school he almost didn’t know anything. According to Chirivella, Atta could have only done that if he had started to fly the plane one or two seconds before the crash. Currently, Chrivella is a pilot of Iberia Company and after many years living in Miami without committing any crime, the American authorities have forbidden his entrance in the United States. Obviously, Chirivella is a witness who has troubled the «official version».

The book explained many things. For instance, it read that New York’s seismographs which registered and recorded that there were strong vibrations in the earth’s crust and the bases of the Twin Towers seconds before their collapse and these vibrations had nothing to do with the aircrafts crash or the collapse of the Towers, which were also registered. Besides, things have been quite clear for the experts: the two last belonged to the vibrations of the earth’s crust while the other one didn’t. Cardeñosa’s investigation was very serious and objective. It would be impossible to comment on all the aspects of this interesting and remarkable book in this short journalistic work.

Prissy isn't a forensic scientist, but the article makes very interesting claims-as do the links.

Must see 911 pictures-haven't seen these photos since it happened...some writing is French, some English. Mostly photographs of the events.

petitions.100free.com/wtc/L'arnaque.htm Thank you to L'arnaque for these 911 pictures. The links they list at the bottom of the page are interesting too. Use babelfish to translate or click on the UK flag for english listed on some sites. babelfish.altavista.com/

Prissy would put babelfish on site for her international readers, but alas it does not allow for javascript add- ons. If that changes, it will be added.

Excerpt:At The Oregonian in Portland, Executive Editor Peter Bhatia also commended the Times' effort, but noted "a lot of newsrooms around the country still have questions, questions about the second source and the timing of how eveything played out."

Nancy Conway, editor of The Salt Lake Tribune, also found the report lacking information. "I think it left us with questions, how this all played out between the editors, the organization, and Judy Miller," Conway said. "Who was determining how to cover the story?" She also praised the Times for trying to be transparent, but added, "I'm just not sure how successful they were."

Excerpt: Remark by Ms Rice on Iran's right to have nuclear technology is something and confidence-building is something else. It is clear the United States has acknowledged that Iran has such rights." He rejected using unfamiliar and inventive literature saying, "Admission of Iran's rights to use nuclear technology is hidden in remarks made by Ms Rice and people like her."

Asefi added, "On building the confidence deemed by Ms Rice, it should be said that confidence will be made through implementation of the (nuclear Additional) Protocol and regulations.
