Karzai complains that US is contaminating Afghanistan with depleted Uranium, and that US is pursuing its own interests rather than Afghanistan.
Pakistan arrests CIA operatives in Abbottabad who supposedly helped spy on OBL.
Mildly interesting new twist to the Pentagon attack, involving a Park service helicopter. Mostly of note because early reports said a helicopter crashed at the Pentagon rather than a plane.
$6.6 billion stolen in Iraq may be "the largest theft of funds in national history." No real clues to what happened to it. UPDATE: Or is it $18 billion?
New 9/11 limited hangout: "New Documents Claim Intelligence on Bin Laden, al-Qaeda Targets Withheld From Congress' 9/11 Probe". Some military intel dude calling himself Iron Man says there were extensive warnings of an attack on the WTC and the Pent. He worked at the
"Asymmetric Threats Division, formed in 1999, and "charged with reporting on asymmetric threats, especially terrorism."As usual, the commentators see the big picture of 9/11 much better than the myopic authors of the piece.
The unit worked with Joint Task Force-Civil Support (JTF-CS), also set up in 1999. According to the Defense Department (DoD), JTF-CS was charged with supporting "terrorist response operations in the continental US" and providing "military assistance to civil authorities."
The Asymmetric Threats Division is referred to as DO5, a branch of the Joint Forces Intelligence Command (JFIC), whose responsibilities included, among other things, vetting human intelligence sources on behalf of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). From 1998 to 2001, Iron Man was working as a counterterrorism/counterintelligence analyst for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), assigned to JFIC."
Despite the Dimona Dozen shill nonsense, I still wonder if there is some truth in this piece about the 3/11 quake being less than advertised and nukes being used to destroy the Fukushima nuclear reactors. A related piece without adding in the Israel connection.
Amusing-- death of al-CIA-duh operative in Somalia confirmed by CIA's DNA analysis.
Family of flight 175 victim Mark Bavis is the very last holdout for a 9/11 legal settlement against the airlines. And now the trial is delayed AGAIN.
