|Hayden and the
NSA- the most ignored "9/11 connection"?
A 'rant' based on research, compiled between 2001 and 2006,
Gen. Michael V. Hayden, currently Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence
has also served as Commander of the Air Intelligence Agency
and as Director of the Joint Command and Control Warfare Center.
But more important, he was also former head of the NSA (March 1999 - April 2005).
The role of the NSA regarding 9/11, and ironically also the 9/11 truth 'community',
is consequently dismissed and ignored by many '9/11 truthseekers'.
Apparently because some particular '9/11 authors'
and self appointed '9/11 activist leaders'
distracted too much with 'CIA, Cheney and the Pentagon'.
It was always clear, why.
To also delay or distract from all physical evidence, based on military operations,
scripted by the NSA and their private contractors.
The NSA, but also the NASA had their eyes not only on the 9/11 "plotline"
but also on the "military operation" of 9/11.
More closely than any other U.S. Government Agency.
The National Security Agency (NSA) has traditionally influenced
and been a very early and sophisticated user of the highest performance
of commercial computer, storage, and networking systems.
That includes also the Internet and the internet "daisy committees" of the NSA.
These are unidentified online trolls, which nicknames share different I.P. addresses,
though only impostering 'one and the same user'.
However this "user", represented with a nickname
is also able to post 24/7 on particular discussion boards, apparently without any sleep.
The NSA can also basically login and monitor all important databases of the U.S.,
especially aviation databases.
Among them the National Flight Database (NFD).
Current data elements included are:
Airports and Heliports,
Standard Terminal Arrival Procedures (STARs),
GPS and RNAV (GPS) or Runways for airports that have a SIAP coded in the NFD.
Would the NSA 'log in' on the morning on Sep11th?
Sure they would.
That's why they also know, that the BTS database of the FAA already proves,
that "AA77" and "AA11" did not exist on the morning of 9/11.
The NSA knew all alleged passengers on the morning of Sep11th.
They know this faster than the FBI or CIA.
They know which plane does exist and which doesn't.
They also know in real time, what really happened in NYC, Shanksville and
at the Pentagon, because of less stress of 'competence'.
In other words, the NSA are important part of the perpetrators who 'did 9/11'.
"The CIA did 9/11" is instead distraction language of many "9/11 truthlings",
based on a dried out old school meme of the 80s.
This meme often also includes other inane 'NWO'-drivel like endless distractions
of esoterical traps like "MK-ULTRA" or "drug business", to water down the issue.
The 'CIA-talk' often distracts on alleged on-topic 'discussion forums' with other off-topics,
which immediately deceive their online members with secondary 'research'
or even pseudo-religious agenda, new age cults and other historical sideshows.
Often "CIA researchers" find themselves quickly among associates of "TWA800 researchers"
or worse: "JFK researchers" or "moonflight hoax debunkers".
The strategy is obvious.
To distract from Sep11th with either paranoia or "80s conspiracy theories".
"The Mossad did it"-meme has a similar strategy, though it clearly distracts
with other obvious agendas, often even conflicting each other,
which has the same purpose: Divide and Conquer.
Right after 9/11, self appointed "Mossad researchers", often end up
in debates on historical research from over 2000-3000 years ago,
which is even more effective.
The 'CIA distraction' also helps to stir a fight between
the supporters of the 'mossad distraction'
and the 'CIA-NWO' sensationalists,
often also accused as "zionists", especially if you deny ANY complicity of the Mossad.
But what has 'complicity' to do with the actual performance of the inside operation?
Basically the same complicity of the so called '9/11 cover-up'
can also be easily constructed with the dutch-, german-, saudi- or pakistani intelligence.
The result is an endless debate on whether the one or other agency had more or
less participation into 9/11.
What almost noone realizes, all these 'complicities' refer in the majority to the plotline,
not the military operation.
Therefore it doesn't matter if either CIA, BND, MOSSAD, Dutch Intelligence or "Able Danger" "observed" or "impostered" the alleged hijackers.
It all represents just the 'plotline' and distracts from
the controlled demolition or the so called "controversial" TV fakery research.
The "CIA connection" was also designed to distract from the private military-
and intelligence contractors (PMCs), which already replaced and dominated
U.S. Intelligence anyway.
Another "distraction", not less effective, is the "Bush did it" meme,
which helps to distract with post 9/11' -"scandals" of the White House or Pentagon,
to keep false hope campaigners or the complete 'anti-war movement' busy.
The same "bush did it" meme also automatically triggers other inane 'activist drivel' on prior knowledge red herrings like Jeb or Marvin Bush.
That's why also so called leftgatekeepers are still clueless about the real players
of many other new 'setups' against their own citizens:
Among them In-Q-Tel, Titan Corp., BoozAllen Hamilton, CSC/DynCorp, SAIC and many others.
The NSA has their own satellite surveillance trackers, developed by SAIC
and other private intelligence contractors.
(* see also
SAIC- power structure 9/11 and more
On the morning of Sep11th, the NSA did not follow any particular standard government-
and military procedure or any other logistics, therefore cannot be accused of "negligence".
There also was no "Rumsfeld around".
Neither a silly "Rove influence", "Cheney" or "Joe Wilson",
all carefully designed limited hangout puppets.
Truthlings and Gatekeepers apparently watched too many soap operas.
If the name isn't known to them, it isn't 'cool' to talk about.
That's why more important players of the 9/11 perps never arrived
on any '9/11 truth flyer', among them:
Douglas Feith, Stephen Cambone, Jay C Davis (ANSER), James Woolsey, Ruth David,
James R. Clapper, Duane (Dewey) Clarridge, Andrew W. "Yoda" Marshall,
Scott Myers, Eliot Cohen, Christopher Demut, Thomas S. Foley,
Charles Holland, David Jeremiah, Michael Ledeen, Norman Podhoretz,
Bruce P. Jackson, the Naudet Brothers, the Club of Rome, Raytheon and many others.
That's why also the role of the NSA is underrepresented in this 'truth movement',
because much closer to the truth than anyone else.
That's why cointel-pro still succesfully runs or
deceives the biggest 'activist' groups in the 9/11 truth movement.
Anyone knows, that the Heritage Foundation runs meetup.com,
where most of the 'activists' met in the first time?
Obviously the majority doesn't.
"Profile producers" are less important than "profile paranoia".
When 'Civil Right activists' try to distract with "controversial surveillance facts" on the NSA,
they follow a clear script from their leadership groups, itself also infiltrated by government agents
or sponsored by right wing think tanks, ironically also often close to the CIA.
The same or similar pattern can be also seen in the 'alternative media'.
Often cited in this connection:
DemocracyNow!, FAIR, Nation, PBS or truthout.org.
It not only helps as a gatekeeper distraction from 9/11,
it also helps to increase the limited hangout agenda
for the political theatre.
However the role of the NSA for both 9/11 'plotline' and 'military operation',
but also 'disinformation front' and 'surveillance industry' regarding 9/11 'activists'
is much more important.
It wasn't the CIA, but apparently the NSA with their most advanced high tech,
which really was in charge of the so called "9/11 plotline".
However the official 'plotline' of 9/11 had nothing to do with the military operation.
The 'plotline' of 9/11 helped as most important distraction, even still in 2006.
While the 9/11 perpetrators used the CIA as helpful distraction idiots,
the NSA knew exactly who observed whom
in the 'plotline' and when the 'military operation' would take place:
"Tomorrow is Zero hour" (September 10th, 2001)
The alleged suspects of 9/11 met next to Fort Meade.
Also, it was ex-NSA agent Linda Mills (BENS), who lived in the same city as
some of the alleged suspects of 9/11.
And BENS helped creating the Tail to Tooth Commission,
an important tool for the neocons and PNAC.
BENS is located in front of the White House (1717 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20570).
Chairman Stanley A. Weiss is a member of the
Advisory Board of RAND's Center for Middle East
Public Policy, a member of the CFRand writes for Journal sentinel.
Members of BENS are also:
Norman R. Augustine (Director Lockheed Martin),
David S. Browning (Vice President of Schlumberger),
Daniel H. Case, III (Chase),
Rudy de Leon (Senior VP, Boeing),
Victor Ganzi (The Hearst Corporation),
Richard Grasso (New York Stock Exchange),
Frank W. Jenkins (SAIC),
Paul V. Lombardi (President and CEO of DynCorp),
Stephen T. McClellan (Merryl Lynch),
Philip A. Odeen (TRW),
Peter G. Peterson and Stephen A. Schwarzman (Blackstone Group).
Significantly, all these companies have extreme close ties
with particular elements of '9/11 research', some of them also
represent distractive issues like 'put options', 'war', 'media control' or 'oil industry'.
The "military operation" of 9/11 therefore also included a P.R. and media operation and
was a close cooperation with their very own private military- and intelligence contractors:
AMEC renovated the wedge of the Pentagon, which 'coincidentally' was attacked on Sep11th.
Then also AMEC was in charge to remove the rubble of the Pentagon, but also from Ground Zero.
Among other contractors: Tully Inc., which subcontracted Controlled Demolotion Inc.
(* see also
The AMEC- Turner-WTC 7 connection)
Honeywell produced the cockpit recorder, which was officially found in Shanksville.
Two Honeywell employees 'followed' the Colgan Flight of 'Mohammad Atta'.
A high tech military camera system (meanwhile belonging to L3 Communications),
installed on an unidentified and prepositioned helicopter,
which filmed the only available "live" footage of the 2nd attack.
This 'footage' was then exclusively wired to W-ABC (ABC7) which synched their
final camera operator position feed 11 seconds (!) before the 2nd attack took place,
with CNN, FOX and NBC. (CBS had no 'live aired footage')
Also, it was the hangar of the NASA (NASA Glenn Research) in Cleveland,
where unidentified passengers of two U.S. flights (among them Delta 1989)
had been interrogated by the FBI.
Strangely "Delta 1989" was only forced to land in Cleveland,
because it had the same flight pattern as "United175", officially hijacked on that morning.
Oddly also the other flight was early identified as "United93",
confirmed by Mayor Michael R. White and 9News Staff (Liz Foreman),
which later denied the accurancy of their story.
The CIA (same to FBI) was also used as a distraction for the 'limited hangout' to divert
not only attention away from the NSA but also NRO and NIMA (later renamed into NGA).
The National Imagery and Mapping Agency was also known as "the 'eyes of America'
On August 8th, 2001 (two days after Bush received a new PDB with a clear warning on Bin Laden),
James R. Clapper was announced as new head of NRO.
The countdown for 9/11 continued.
These 3 intelligence agencies had been already in charge
during the mid 90s to develop a so called
'secret surveillance project', closely also linked to former Reagan's "Star Wars",
which was in reality well known,
even for U.S. Congress:
ECHELON and PROJECT TRAILBLAZER.
During 1998/1999, under Bill Clinton, the NSA and NRO handed out their first contracts of "Trailblazer"
to almost a dozen of less known private military- and intelligence contractors.
In the same years, controversy breaks out over the NSA "Echelon" project.
U.S. Congress 'figured' a problem with Echelon and looked into it.
However in 1999 both General Hayden (NSA) and George Tenet (CIA) neither denied or confirmed
the existance of Echelon and their sub contractors.
If they would have confirmed the existance of Echelon and its sub projects,
noone would have believed into negligence on the morning of Sep11th.
The denial was therefore most important, because 9/11 was already in planning.
In March 2001, Logicon TASC officially announced their five-year,
$57 million contract for "Trailblazer".
'Logicon' was in reality a team of others:
"Logicon Task Team", part of Northrop Grumman, included Veridian (in 2003 aquired by General Dynamics),
Advent Systems Inc., Mountain View, EDS, Advanced Engineering & Sciences,
RDR Inc., SRS Technologies.
Another subcontractor of Logicon TASK (diff. sp.)
became Modern Technologies Corporation (MTC) of Dayton.
MTC included Kenneth A. Minihan (ex-NSA, ex-DIA) and General Lawrence A. Skantze (ex -U.S. Air Force).
The lost terror drill- Pt.11 B )
Veridian includes Neil Armstrong (former space missions during 60s).
This brings us also directly to a popular example
for an infiltration hipothesis of the 9/11 "truth" movement:
Neil Armstrong's sister is married with Jack Hoffman,
who is interestingly the uncle of '9/11 author' Jim Hoffman,
recently again accused as disinfo provocateur
(against the "Loose Change" people).
Hoffman's former institute is sponsored by the NSA, NSF and ONR (Office of Naval Research)
After Jim Hoffman plagiarized his 'wtc7' research from the '9/11 science and justice alliance',
he oddly turned into a so called "planehugger"
(supportive of the idea that a plane crashed into the Pentagon,
in Shanksville and into both Twin Towers)
Back to 'Trailblazer':
Some parts of this program had been also developed in the very same wedge,
which was attacked on 9/11.
The 'pentagon attack' not only 'wiped out' the Office of Naval Intelligence,
but also three employees of James Woolsey's Booz Allen Hamilton.
Woolsey (ex-CIA director and PNAC)'s company was working on "Trailblazer".
Also killed: two employees from BTG Inc., another sub contractor of Trailblazer.
Only 10 days after Sep11th, BTG Inc. was suddenly purchased by Woolsey's other former company,
Needless to say, Titan was another main contracter of Trailblazer
since 1998 (contracted by both NSA and NRO).
What "role" did the NRO really play?
The NRO is main suspect among some '9/11 truthseekers' for the Pentagon attack,
with the cover of a live terror exercise drill on the morning of Sep11th.
Again, this also helped to re-establish the myth for an alleged commercial aircraft at the Pentagon.
A terrorist drill which was "cancelled", but in reality took place but didn't include a real plane either.
When the importance of the pre 9/11-terror drill research in general became more popular
(among them also the terror drill exercise for the anthrax attack during June 2001, "Dark Winter"),
9/11 research frauds had to establish another plagiarization and distraction:
The so called "wargames-focus" and the alleged "Cheney mastermind" role was therefore created
to divert attention away from the terror drill run-up for 9/11, and build yet another limited hangout.
Once again, the 9/11 truth movement was fooled and still is, because most of the 'wargame activists'
ended up as 'peak oil fanatics' or started to talk about 'global warming' or 'alternative energy'.
Not if you know, who and why these distractions had been scripted into this movement.
It helped to delay and later control the activists of the "controlled demolition".
It helped to either discourage or depress many 'activists' in general
or keep them busy with false hope campaigns.
And it helped to distract from NSA, NGA and NRO.
The researcher who found out about all this, was labelled
All other supportive associates labelled as 'wackos' or 'insane'.
Case closed. But that was 2003/04.
Why is the NRO much more important than the CIA?
The NRO was established in 1960 to develop the nation's revolutionary satellite reconnaissance systems.
It was endorsed by Dwight D. Eisenhower in February 1958
after the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, the first orbital satellite.
The existence of the NRO was declassified by the Deputy Secretary of Defense,
as recommended by the Director of Central Intelligence on September 18, 1992.
The Director of the NRO is appointed by the Secretary of Defense
with the consent of the Director of National Intelligence,
without confirmation from U.S. Congress.
(In July 2005 Donald M. Kerr was approved as new Director of the NRO)
In late 2001, "Trailblazer" (just another sub project and codename of Echelon and others)
was integrated into "Misty".
The information was still 'classified'.
Finally during December 2004, the so called 'classified' project, popped up in U.S. mainstream media.
Now described as "controversial spy satellite program" or "stealth satellite program",
it was debated by some U.S. congress members, among them Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon.
Finally General Michael Hyden (NSA) somehow confirmed, that this 'spy satellite program'
was a cooperation between the NGA (National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency), the NSA
Hyden also confirmed, that Lockheed was then picked as one of the main contractors
for this Satellite Surveillance program.
On December 8, 2004, Sen. Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia,
the senior Democrat on the Intelligence Committee,
"complained" ...that the spy project was "totally unjustified and very,
very wasteful and dangerous to the national security."
Rockefeller and three other Democratic senators -
Richard Durbin of Illinois, Carl Levin of Michigan
and Ron Wyden of Oregon - refused to support this 'secret project'.
It took only 3 weeks to kill the debate and approve the project.
It was the result of an officially labelled 'natural disaster':
The Sumatra-Andaman earthquake, followed by a series of tsunamis throughout the Indian Ocean,
killing large numbers of people and devastating coastal communities in Indonesia,
Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, and elsewhere.
Meanwhile, noone in U.S. Congress,
especially 'since Katrina' argues about any 'satellite surveillance threat' anymore.
While so called 'weather modification theorists' are getting accused as 'paranoid'
and/or 'without any evidence', the coincidental timing of these events should make some people
think, especially since U.S. Congress already debating two Weather Modification Bills.
Meanwhile also Hayden has the guts to claim, "had this program been in effect prior to 9/11, it is my professional judgment that we would have detected some of the 9/11 al-Qaida operatives in the United States, and we would have identified them as such.."
But eco-, human right- and civil right activists are not getting the bigger picture,
because the fundings of their biggest groups are already controlled by globalists -since decades!
They rule the agenda, they rule the topics.
And if it comes to NSA, only superficial topics are allowed to debate or instrumentalize,
often also to manipulate the idea, that democracy still exists in the U.S.
And if it comes to e-voting machines, wannabee activists ignore military and intelligence
influence into the production of these machines, supervised by Pentagon and NSA contractors
like SAIC, Northrop-Grumman, Lockheed-Martin,
Accenture (formerly a spin-off of ENRON's Arthur Andersen) and EDS.
But does that mean, all other, less organised media activists are having the better strategy?
The irony is, that also the majority of so called independent 'activists' and 'researchers'
share another thing in common: Their ignorance on google.
While many 'truthlings' praying 'google' as the holy grail for their 'breakthrough' for 9/11-research and
community creations, it's more than clear, that Google operates as yet another NSA- and NASA
front, with the only purpose to profile their users worldwide via cache results, 'google desktop',
'google calendar' and 'google earth'.
The facts are:
Google works openly with ex-NSA employee Matt Cutts (since 2000).
Google works together with the NASA.
In April 2004, google acquired one of the companies
in which CIA firm In-Q-Tel invested, @Last Software.
Google already acquired Keyhole, Inc., which was developed by In-Q-Tel as well.
The CIA doesn't care about all this?
It should therefore noone surprise, why noone wants to buy google.
If it belongs to the NSA, it will be impossible :)
The 9/11 truth movement community and many other false oppositions are played by the NSA.
Should THAT discourage us?
No, it shouldn't. Because we altogether still have the same chance on this very same cyber chess board.
It depends on which figure you're playing at which time.
The real tools are the 9/11 truthlings. They're also not the real "googlers".
They will not find any real clue about what's going on.
As long as the truthlings run the show,
the NSA doesn't care about more serious 'google activists
Instead they focus on the 9/11 truthling sheeple:
The NSA know every step of them and
therefore sending from time to time
new alleged false hope campaigners and gurus
into this 'movement'.
Whether it was ex-CIA firm In-Q-tel 'negotiator'
Karl Schwarz or Mike Ruppert (who himself even claims,
both parents worked for the NSA).
It still works:
A real "truthling" never questioned their 'leaders'.
And that's why General Hayden will most obviously BECOME head of the CIA,
surely after some fake debates between the democratic- and republican party,
in case they won't find someone better, who once worked for NSA, NRO or NGA.
And maybe also the one or other 9/11 truthling might point out,
that the NSA knew about 'zero hour'.
But since this is already yet another poisoned meme, this truthling might deceive another truthling to buy a book by Paul Thompson.
Meanwhile, the reorganisation of the U.S. Intelligence Apparatus is almost done.
"...The first was the stacking of too many responsibilities
on the director of central intelligence (DCI),
with insufficient statutory powers.
The second was the Defense Department’s ownership
of the national intelligence agencies (the National Security Agency [NSA],
the National Reconnaissance Office [NRO], and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency [NGA]).
And the third was the FBI’s control of domestic intelligence,
or in other words, the absence of a U.S. counterpart
to Britain’s MI5 or Canada’s Security Intelligence Service..."
Welcome back to the Matrix.
The deceptions and 'distractions'
throughout all false oppositions do still work.
Don't worry about it.
There will be always another 'zero hour' :)

|"The CIA did 9/11"
is instead distraction language of many "9/11 truthlings", based on
a dried out old school meme of the 80s.
This is often due to lack of knowledge of the intelligence community. A lot of people for example state that the CIA worked in tandem with the Pakistani ISI during the 1980's to build training camps and recruit Muslim fighters in the battle against the Soviets, while in truth the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) had a far more important role compared to the CIA.
I guess it's not meant to distract on purpose, but is mainly due to ignorance on the subject ?

Gossgate: In-Q-tel, Randy Cunningham, Hookers, Limos and other reasons of Porter Goss 'resignation'
May 23, 2005
It ain't easy pinning down Ionatron Inc., the Tucson, Arizona laser weapon firm...
...there's one media outlet where Ionatron's name has been mentioned a whole lot, lately. That would be the New York Post, where business columnist Christopher Byron has been on a one-man jihad against the ray gun company. His most recent strike came last week, as he accused Senate Appropriations Committee chief Thad Cochran of steering millions in congressional discretionary funds Ionatron's way – in return for $9,000 in campaign contributions, and a promise to relocate to Cochran's home state of Mississippi...
On May 9, he claimed that "accumulating evidence now suggests that at least some of the technology that Ionatron claims to possess may actually belong either to Waltham, Mass.-based Raytheon Co., which has been conducting its own government-funded 'directed energy' weapons research for years, or to a small California tech company rival called HSV Technologies, Inc., or perhaps to both."
Byron's talking about In-Q-Tel,
the non-profit investment arm of the CIA that put money into Ionatron when the company was young. In-Q-Tel officials heatedly denied that the firm was involved in any "pump-and-dump" schemes. And I'm inclined to agree. In-Q-Tel isn't like other venture capital firms. It's more like an incubator for spook-friendly technologies...
In-Q-Tel CEO Resigns
April 24, 2006
"...Amit Yoran quits after four months on the job running the CIA’s venture capital arm...
...Mr. Yoran said he resigned to spend more time with his wife and three children, adding that when he took the job, he hadn’t expected to do quite so much traveling..."
(ed: Yoran was also former Homeland Security cybersecurity chief.
Before working in the private sector, Yoran was the Director of the Vulnerability Assessment Program within the Computer Emergency Response Team at the Department of Defense and the Network Security Manager and the Department of Defense where he was responsible for maintaining operations of the Pentagon's network.
In March 2005, George Bush picked former In-Q-Tel's former President and Chief Operating Officer Michael D. Griffith as new head for NASA.
At the request of the CIA, Norman Augustine, former CEO of Lockheed-Martin, founded In-Q-Tel (originally named Peleus, Inc. and then In-Q-It) as a private sector corporation in February 1999.
It followed a May 1998 "Strategic Direction" initiative from George Tenet, supported by
Business Executives for National Security [BENS]

..The list of investments includes big-name companies like Science Applications International Corporation [SAIC], the systems integrator, Lockheed Martin, the defense contractor, and BoozAllen & Hamilton, the consulting firm...
...In-Q-Tel is also working with BoozAllen to probe existing vulnerabilities on the Internet, and it is developing advanced search engine tools with Lockheed Martin. The fund is working with the Open GIS Consortium, a group of companies developing a standard for 3-D spatial data. The 3-D data program could enable GPS devices to talk to computers, and input NASA data in the future, for example...
The secret behind CIA's venture capital
June 2, 2005
Gilman Louie is used to living in a fishbowl of sorts.
(ed: Gilman Louie was replaced by Amit Yoran in january 2006)
As chief executive officer of In-Q-Tel, Louie has the job of operating as a venture capitalist charged with helping to deliver new technologies to the CIA as well as the rest of the U.S. intelligence community.
Q: In-Q-Tel was recently accused by a New York Post columnist of being involved in a "pump and dump" scheme. Is there a conflict of interest between being a government-funded nonprofit and conducting private stock sales?
Louie: I don't think the writer was off base in asking the question. He may not have had all these facts right, but the foundation of the question of whether it's reasonable to have a nonprofit whose principal job it is to make investments is: Have employees benefited?
When we were setting up In-Q-Tel, the CIA said, "Look, we want you to build a model that can analog to the commercial world."
Goss Goes Out—But the CIA's Struggles Go On
Newsweek May 15, 2006 issue
"...Emblematic of the CIA's woes is its number-three man, Executive Director Kyle (Dusty) Foggo...
..Federal investigators are looking at the ties of the CIA's "Ex Dir" to a congressional bribery scandal. Foggo was a high-school football teammate and college buddy of Brent Wilkes's, a defense contractor who was identified as an unindicted co-conspirator when former San Diego congressman and ex-Navy air ace Randy (Duke) Cunningham pleaded guilty.
The CIA has acknowledged that its internal watchdog is investigating if Foggo helped steer any contracts to Wilkes. According to three sources who declined to be identified commenting on the details of a government probe, there are also indications that the Feds are interested in Foggo's role in the wider Cunningham bribery scandal...

Limo firm denies providing prostitutes
WASHINGTON, May 6 (UPI) -- The president of a Washington limousine company, denied he provided prostitutes to former Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Calif.
Federal investigators have been examining the relationship between Shirlington Limousine and Brent R. Wilkes, a San Diego businessman under investigation for bribing Cunningham to get federal contracts.
Mitchell Wade, a defense contractor who has admitted to bribing Cunningham, told prosecutors that Wilkes used the limousine company to help procure paid escorts for Cunningham, The Washington Post reported.
was awarded two transportation contracts worth $25 million from the Department of Homeland Security in 2004 and 2005 even though the company was not the low bidder.
Officials said the limousine company's president, Christopher Baker, has a criminal record including two felony convictions, but that would not have affected the company's bid. When the Homeland Security Administration contracts with a company, officials said, it does not check the criminal backgrounds of executives or run executives' names against the government's terrorist watch list..."

Is Foggo A Target of FBI Investigation?
By Justin Rood - May 5, 2006, 4:40 PM
We knew the CIA Inspector General was probing CIA #3 man Kyle "Dusty" Foggo's connection to Brent Wilkes and his contracts with the agency. But when CNN's John Roberts said maybe 20 minutes ago that Foggo was under investigation by the FBI, also, I think that's the first time that's been authoritatively reported...
CIA's Goss Drawn Into Hooker Probe?

Ken Silverstein reports at Harper's blog on the spreading Cunningham-Wade-Wilkes prostitute scandal. He says more lawmakers, past and present, are being investigated. Sounds like he thinks House Intel Chair-turned-CIA Director Porter Goss is one of them:

The Sunday Times May 07, 2006
ALL the ingredients for a spy thriller involving prostitutes, poker, a congressman called Randy and parties at the legendary Watergate complex may lie behind the sudden resignation of Porter Goss as director of the CIA last Friday.
The saga has already been named “Hookergate” and the CIA is buzzing with rumours that there is more to Goss’s departure than meets the eye.
The timing is certainly curious, coming hard on the heels of the CIA’s confirmation last week that Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, the number three in the nation’s spy centre who was hand-picked by Goss, had attended poker games at the Watergate and Westin Grand hotels in Washington with Brent Wilkes, a defence contractor and close boyhood friend.
Wilkes is under investigation for allegedly providing Randy “Duke” Cunningham, a disgraced Republican congressman, with prostitutes, limousines and free hotel suites.
The net is also closing in on Foggo, who is being investigated by the FBI over the award to Wilkes of a $3m contract to supply bottled water and other goods to CIA operatives in Iraq and Afghanistan. Although Foggo has admitted playing poker with Wilkes, he insists that no prostitutes were present.
A former senior CIA official said this weekend that he had been told by a trusted source inside the agency that Goss, 67, had attended one of the poker games. The CIA has denied it. “Goss has repeatedly denied being there, so if it were to come out that he was, he is finished,” the former official said.
..Behind Bush’s public explanation for Goss’s departure lies a second authorised version, according to which Goss lost a turf battle for power and prestige with John Negroponte, the politically adept new director of national intelligence, a post created to oversee all intelligence gathering after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001...
...Goss is expected to be replaced tomorrow by General Michael Hayden, head of the National Security Agency (NSA), who is close to Dick Cheney, the vice-president...
Brent R. Wilkes
Brent R. Wilkes is a Bush Pioneer who raised (http://www.tpj.org/docs/pioneers/pioneers_view.jsp?id=1005) at least $100,000 for the Bush-Cheney campaign in 2004. According to Federal Election Commission filings, Wilkes and his wife have donated $139,806 to politicians since 2001, not including the $100,000 Wilkes raised as an elite fundraising Pioneer for Bush in 2004.  (http://tinyurl.com/gl7vv WashPost)
Wilkes is the founder of defense contractor ADCS, Inc., "a San Diego IT services company."
ADCS a.k.a. the Wilkes Corporation, a.k.a. Group W Advisors
Lawmaker contacted contractor early on
ADCS, or Automated Document Conversion Services, specializes in scanning documents so they can be indexed and cross-referenced easily. Its biggest project has been archiving 1.2 million architectural documents from the Panama Canal in 1999...
"...Since 1994, Wilkes and ADCS gave $40,700 in campaign contributions to Rep. Duncan Hunter, a San Diego Republican who now chairs the House Armed Services Committee. Hunter has acknowledged that he joined with Cunningham in 1999 to contact Pentagon officials who reversed a decision and gave ADCS one of its first big contracts, for nearly $10 million."

How John Negroponte won control of the CIA, and what he plans next to consolidate rival agencies and his power
Sunday, May. 07, 2006
...If, as expected, Hayden takes over the CIA, the agency will more than ever become an extension of Negroponte's growing empire. A friendly and intense four-star, Hayden would be the first active-duty military man at the CIA's helm since Admiral Stansfield Turner ran the place for President Jimmy Carter...
...Until early last year, Hayden ran the supersecret National Security Agency at Fort Meade, Md., which covertly eavesdrops on conversations worldwide. It was under Hayden that the Bush Administration launched a secret, warrantless wiretapping program that began capturing conversations of private citizens at home...
...is considered a controversial figure by some because of his involvement in the covert funding of the Contras and the coverup of human rights abuses carried out by CIA-trained operatives in Honduras in the 1980s...
...From 1981 to 1985 Negroponte was the U.S. ambassador to Honduras. During this time military aid to Honduras grew from $4 million to $77.4 million a year, and the US began to maintain a significant military presence there, with the goal of providing a bulwark against the communist Sandinista government of Nicaragua...
...In early 1984, two American mercenaries, Thomas Posey and Dana Parker, contacted Negroponte, stating they wanted to supply arms to the Contras after the U.S. Congress had banned further military aid. Documents show that Negroponte brought the two together with a contact in the Honduran armed forces. The operation was exposed nine months later, at which point the Reagan administration denied any U.S. involvement, despite Negroponte's introductions of some of the individuals. Other documents detailed a plan of Negroponte and then-Vice President George H. W. Bush to funnel Contra aid money through the Honduran government...
...A controversy exists around the status of 35,000 boxes of documents and tapes seized in Iraq after the 2003 invasion. According to the editors of the Weekly Standard, Negroponte continued the policy of delaying the translation and release of these documents and tapes...

BENS and the Tail To Tooth Commission
What many 9/11 'limited hangout' plotline researcher still do not realise or ignore, that not every 'prior knowledge' of 9/11 can be turned into a 'red herring'.
Three very significant 'events' are getting ignored since 4.8 years:
1) The Homeland Security was already established between 1999 and early 2001, with the help of BENS and ANSER Institute, which also already drilled the 9/11 anthrax attack during June 2001 (Dark Winter)
2) The Pentagon 'Policy' was also logistically restructured
before 9/11, with the help of the Tail-to-Tooth Commission, also with help of BENS:
On February 28th, 2002 Josh S. Weston, Honorary Chairman of BENS, testified, that in early 2001, Warren Rudman and he delivered and discussed their "Tail-Tooth Call to Action with each of the incoming new service secretaries and their deputies.
Starting with Donald Rumsfeld and Pete Aldridge, each of them enthusiastically endorsed our blueprints for action. Secretary Rumsfeld indicated so as recently as last September 10th." The Tail-Tooth Call to Action was a blueprint "to redirect unnecessary and wasteful overhead resources", which had been already used before Sep11th.
Assistant President of the Tail-to-Tooth Commission Commission is Paul E. Taibl, a retired Air Force officer and former command pilot, airlift planner and senior fellow in the Institute for National Strategic Studies at the National Defense University.
Vice President of the TTT commission, which tried to "change Pentagon business practices" before Sep11th is Kenneth D. Beeks, another retired Navy test pilot who joined the BENS staff in June 2000...
3) Also the CIA restructured their 'policy' by outsourcing a venture capital company, as in In-Q-tel, again with the help of BENS
There have been similar 'prior knowlegde' pattern also regarding the NSA, NASA and NRO ("Project Trailblazer", a Satellite Surveillance Project) and the PATRIOT ACT (which was based on the Oklahoma terror act).
And what about BENS' "Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Initiative", "an interactive panel presentation on a biological attack scenario?
Donald H. Rumsfeld, The Pentagon , Monday, September 10, 2001
"....Every dollar squandered on waste is one denied to the warfighter. That's why we're here today challenging us all to wage an all-out campaign to shift Pentagon's resources from bureaucracy to the battlefield, from tail to the tooth.
We know the adversary. We know the threat. And with the same firmness of purpose that any effort against a determined adversary demands, we must get at it and stay at it...
...Some might ask, how in the world could the Secretary of Defense attack the Pentagon in front of its people? To them I reply, I have no desire to attack the Pentagon; I want to liberate it.
(ed: Only a few hours later the Pentagon was "attacked", literally. The political restructure, already announced by Rumsfeld, 1 day before 9/11, continued...)

may have played role in Goss resignation
May 8, 2006
Media sources say a corruption investigation may have forced White House to act quickly on Goss, and may also touch other defense and intelligence officials.
By Tom Regan | csmonitor.com
A widening investigation into a corruption scandal in Congress may have played a key role in the decision by the White House to ask Central Intelligence Agency Director Porter Goss to step down.
The New York Daily News reported Sunday that a "little known White House advisory board" pushed President Bush to dump Mr. Goss as CIA head. The president's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board was reportedly alarmed by the investigation of a spreading corruption scandal that had already looked into the actions of the CIA's number three official and its executive director, Kyle Dustin (Dusty) Foggo, and may have indirectly touched on Goss himself.
The investigations have focused on the Watergate poker parties thrown by defense contractor Brent Wilkes, a high-school buddy of Foggo's, that were attended by disgraced former Rep. Randy (Duke) Cunningham and other lawmakers. Foggo has claimed he went to the parties "just for poker" amid allegations that Wilkes, a top GOP fund-raiser and a member of the $100,000 "Pioneers" of Bush's 2004 reelection campaign, provided prostitutes, limos and hotel suites to Cunningham.
Cunningham is serving an eight-year sentence after pleading to taking $2.4 million in bribes to steer defense contracts to cronies. Wilkes hosted regular parties for 15 years at the Watergate and Westin Grand Hotels for lawmakers and lobbyists. Intelligence sources said Goss has denied attending the parties as CIA director, but that left open whether he may have attended as a Republican congressman from Florida who was head of the House Intelligence Committee.
Harpers.org, the website of Harper's Magazine, reported in late April that the FBI was investigating "current and former lawmakers on Defense and Intelligence comittees" as part of the scandal investigation. The Wall Street Journal also reported that in recent weeks the FBI has interviewed women from escort services in the Washington area, as well as obtained information from the Watergate Hotel, where many of the poker parties were allegedly held. While no other member of Congress has been implicated so far, if the FBI finds evidence of favors being given to lawmakers, it could lead to charges.
The New York Times reported Sunday that the investigation into Randy Cunningham's actions "has produced a second round of inquiries into the actions of officials at the CIA and the Homeland Security Department and of members of the House Intelligence Committee," according to government officials.
Writing for the progressive online news site truthout.org, Larry C. Johnson (who worked previously with the CIA and the US State Department's Office of Counterterrorism as a deputy director), says sources have told him that Goss did not directly take part in the any of the parties that Foggo attended, but that other members of his staff may have.
A former CIA buddy tells me that Porter's main problem, however, is a key staffer who is linked to both Brent Wilkes and the CIA's Executive Director, Dusty Foggo. My friend also said that it is highly likely that the Goss staffer did participate in the [parties]. Goss, politician that he is, probably recognized that even though he did not participate ..., his staffer's participation created a huge problem for him that would be difficult to escape.
There also is truth to the rumor that Goss was not happy with presiding over a CIA that had been rendered a co-equal with the Department of Defense intelligence units. Prior to the creation of the National Director of Intelligence (NDI), the CIA was the lead intelligence agency. No longer. Ironically, part of the impetus for the creation of the NDI was the perceived "failures" of the CIA with respect to 9/11 and Iraq. Recent revelations by retired CIA officers, such as Paul Pillar and Ty Drumheller, make clear that the CIA basically got it right on Iraq and was ignored by the Bush administration...

The Loss of Goss
Why did the CIA’s chief resign so abruptly?
Monday, May 8, 2006
...In related news, members of Congress have announced they will investigate the $21.2 million contract between the Department of Homeland Security and Shirlington Limousine of Alexandria, Virginia. As I first reported here on April 27, Shirlington is the firm that is deeply implicated in the Cunningham scandal and got the DHS contract despite being headed by a man with a lengthy criminal record. “The information we've obtained,” GOP Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama, who chairs the House subcommittee that oversees DHS, told the New York Times in a story that ran yesterday, “raises a number of serious questions, from the contracting process to possible security concerns.” Today, two members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Inspector General Richard Skinner, requesting further investigation into the DHS contracts with Shirlington Limousine...
Foggo out at CIA
...ABC News' Christopher Isham reported today that a respected veteran CIA officer — Stephen Kappes — had already been asked to return to the agency as Hayden's right hand. Kappes had left the agency when Goss was appointed as its head...
Stephen Kappes (born 1952) was Deputy Director of Operations (DDO) for the CIA from October to November 2004, when he resigned over internal politics. He succeeded James Pavitt. He was appointed in June, 2004. Previously, he was an Assistant Deputy Director of Operations (ADDO) beginning in June, 2002. Before being named ADDO, he served concurrently as Chief of the Counterintelligence Center and Associate Deputy Director for Operations for Counterintelligence.
He served in dangerous and difficult postings in Moscow and Pakistan. Towards the end of his tenure with the CIA he reported directly to President George W. Bush as the CIA's point man in secret high-stakes negotiations with Libya that ended the rogue state's weapons-of-mass-destruction programs.
Kappes joined the CIA in 1981 after five years as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. During his Agency career, Kappes has studied and speaks Persian and Russian.
During April, 2005, ArmorGroup, a British security firm, named him vice president in charge of global strategy.

PRE-9/11 and POST 9/11-spy program cover-up
PBS writes today, that "...General Hayden has been an enthusiastic supporter of the domestic surveillance program that is not operating under the law..."
What PBS does not tell is that this spy program was already developed years before 9/11, tolerated and approved by both Clinton and Bush:
The Abu Ghraib-Titan- 9/11 Connection
May 10, 2004
NSA director Lt. Gen. Michael Hayden testifies before the House intelligence committee. He says media reports that the NSA collects all electronic communications, spies on U.S. citizens and provides intelligence information to U.S. companies are "false or misleading."
...By the end of March 2001, according to another mainstream source, http://tinyurl.com/3fx2p (Washington Post), "the NSA began its first major push to involve the private sector in development of new SIGINT technology with an initiative it called Trailblazer"...
...In 2001, the Trailblazer program was developed under the order of the NRO, with sub contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and took partly place in the wing of the Pentagon, which was later officially hit by "Flight77"...
...Another "original NSA-plan" for "Trailblazer" was from 2 April 2001, then described as a "program to develop analytic capabilities to meet the challenge of rapidly evolving, modern telecommunications", prime contracts were awarded to Booz Allen & Hamilton, Inc. , Lockheed Martin Corporation and TRW..
Trailblazer was much more than just an advanced "spy and satellite program".
Already in September 2000, http://www.spacenewsfeed.co.uk/2000/3September2000.html
SpaceNewsFeed revealed, that Trailblazer is part of the "Trans Orbital Lunar GPS Experiment"...
http://www.irconnect.com/noc/press/pages/news_releases.mhtml?d=17831 June 14th, 2001, Logicon TASC, a Northrop Grumman company, has won a $75 million contract with the Pentagon...
But already two months earlier, in March 2001, Logicon TASC announced it had won another "five-year, $57 million contract" ..."with a U.S. intelligence agency to provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support for Trailblazer"...
...By now, it appears odd, that this high tech spy team around Booz, the NRO and the Pentagon, was not able to protect themselves on Sep11th. Neither an early evacuation was arranged or the "observation" of the "hijacked planes" had been recognised in time.
One of another Trailblazer partner, TRW and their subsidiary, Peter Peterson's Blackstone Group, had similar "problems".
In October 2000, they obtained the mortgage of WTC 7, a building which then turned into a military complex, with offices on the 23rd floor by the CIA and DoD.
However, the CIA wasn't able to protect the building on Sep11th...
...The NSA originally selected one of the Pentagon's top Private Military Contractrors, SAIC-led Digital Network Intelligence (DNI) Enterprise team that includes Northrop Grumman Corporation, Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., The Boeing Company , Computer Sciences Corporation (later owner of DynCorp) and SAIC wholly-owned subsidiary Telcordia Technologies to contribute to the modernization of the NSA's signals intelligence capabilities.
In October 2002, SAIC
officially announced the contract award from the National Security Agency (NSA) to be the provider of the technology demonstration platform (TDP) phase of the TRAILBLAZER program.
At that time, it wasn't well known for the public,
that the Program was already developed since 2 years...
...Meanwhile, the Trailblazer program developed into another experimental and mysterious level.
In May 2004, The MITRE Corporation, working together with the DMSO (Defense Modeling and Simulation Office),
describes it now as "simulations to support a specific example experiment...
Apparently in the same month, one employee from Titan is in trouble, involved in one of the biggest "cover-up" scandals of Iraq so far: "TortureGate".
His name is officially "John Israel".
John's background is most obscure.
International Herald Tribune connects him also with another "Titan translator, a former taxi driver working at the U.S. detention center at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba"
This cab driver was already "arrested on charges of espionage last year. "The translator with no security clearance who is implicated in the Abu Ghraib scandal, John Israel, worked for a Titan subcontractor, the company said.."
NY Times May 2003
Stephen A. Cambone, the first under secretary of defense for intelligenc, who appointed Maj. Gen. Keith Dayton of the Army has been appointed to head a new team, the Iraq Survey Group, that will look for chemical and biological weapon."
the new undersecretary will "exercise authority, direction, and control over the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), the National Reconnaissance Organization (NRO), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Defense Security Service (DSS) and the DoD Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA)."
Cambone is a 1982 political science Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate School.
He was the staff director of the Commission to Assess the Ballistic Missile Threat to the United States, also known as the "Rumsfeld Commission."
Besides being "a protege of Donald Rumsfeld," he also was one of the authors of the Project for the New American Century's Rebuilding America's Defenses (PNAC), the radical, Strangelovian document that formed the basis for the Bush administration's National Security Strategy.
On Page 60 of this PNAC report, in the section "Transforming U.S. Conventional Forces," which discusses "long-term plans for the U.S. military", it states:
"And advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."
Hayden praised for his 'breathtaking' ideas
May 08. 2006
"...He won generally high marks at NSA despite Trailblazer, a massive technical modernization program that by all accounts spent billions and got meager results...
May 8, 2006
"...he has acknowledged that the agency deserves some blame for the Sept. 11 and Iraq weapons failures. He also admitted to Congress last year the failings of his ambitious program to upgrade the N.S.A.'s technology, known as Trailblazer, which by all accounts has cost billions for meager results..."
The media tries to spin as if "Trailblazer" isn't part of the 'controversial warrantless surveillance program" but it actually is the other way round.
This warrantless surveillance program is part of Trailblazer!
May 9, 2006
"...a major advance in tracking the digital communications NSA was intercepting—but ended up in the virtual dustbin as a $1.2 billion flop, according to numerous published reports..."
The claim, that SAIC and NSA failed on "Trailblazer" is absurd.
They do not committ, that everything worked together on the highest advanced level. If committed, the "failure" on 9/11 would not make any sense any more.
"...Meanwhile, Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC), the lead contractor on the project, did not provide enough people with the technical or management skills to produce such a sophisticated system, according to industry and NSA experts familiar with Trailblazer. And, they said, the company did not say no when the NSA made unrealistic demands..."
SAIC does not confirm, if this program ever failed:
"...SAIC spokesman Jared Adams declined to comment, saying, "We have been asked to defer all comment regarding the NSA Trailblazer contract to the NSA..."
And ALSO the NSA does NOT confirm ANY of these alleged "numerous published records" regarding an alleged failure of 'trailblazer', which was already
embedded in the "Trans Orbital Lunar GPS Experiment" and supported by Lockheed!!
The coverup continues:
"...NSA spokesman Don Weber said the agency would have no response to requests for comment..."
The myth of an alleged (9/11)-intelligence failure has to continue.
And that's the script also leftgatekeepers and "civil right activists" will continue to eat...
