The Abu Ghraib-Titan- 9/11 Connection (TortureGate vs. 9/11)
By Ewing 2001 (*continuing updates in Addendum)
May 8
(See also TortureGate -suspects still at work)

The scandal of Abu Ghraib is currently only connected with 4 main suspects, but how far do the tracks really go?:

2 members of the South Bend?s 428th Military Police Company; and 2 employees of two private intelligence contractors:
Titan Corporation and CACI.

South Bend is a regular partner of the Intelligence Department of the Government.

In October 2001, the unit was already mobilized for a Homeland Security mission at Fort Hood, Texas.

Furthermore, Titan's connection with the "Torture-scandal" in Iraq shows another deeper connection with the Pentagon, than most people expect, but also with the Intelligence and the "9/11 attacks"...

caci

There are not many individual names mentioned yet, so far the head of the army's military intelligence unit in Baghdad, Colonel Thomas Pappas, and defence contractor Steven Stephanowicz (According to Australian News he works for CACI).
There are no pictures of Stefanowicz but General Taguba's words clearly illustrate his role inside Abu Ghraib.

Abu Ghraib is not just a political scandal.

Some Neocon experts think, that the "pictures" of Abu Ghraib (many described it already as a modern "concentration camp") are just another trigger (besides Fallujah and other "well synchronised attacks worldwide") for PNAC's WW4-plan (Podhoretz, Woolsey), and there seems to be also another cover-up, probably the real reason, why Rumsfeld is distracting now so fast from his Intelligence Contractors.

CACI, main suspect of the "torture organisation", has interesting members on their board.
They have ties with the DoD's Business Board, the Air Force Advisory Group, Sandia National Laboratory, Dominion Resources, Inc., an integrated gas and electric company, Texas Gas Resources Group, TRW?s Avionics and Surveillance Group, AMBO, LLC, an Albanian, Macedonian and Bulgarian Oil Company, PharmaKinetics Labs, Inc., the Air Force and the NSA


As a matter of fact, Barbara A. McNamara (Outside Director) - served as NSA's Special U.S. Liaison Officer in London England until August 2003.

The whole story seems to be complex, but maybe it's not complicated at all:
We might find the final dots for 9/11!

It will be not far stretched at all:
Titan Corporation, the other suspect, is a a high tech military company based in San Diego, and also satellite- and security system specialist.

In the Taguba report, which described the Torture details in Abu Ghraib,
is another individual subject named called "John Israel".
In the report he is mistakenly identified as a CACI employee.
Only in the annex on the last page is he noted as being with Titan Corp.

Founded in 1981, Titan headquartered in San Diego, is a leading provider of comprehensive information and communications systems solutions and services to the Department of Defense, intelligence agencies, and other federal government customers.

To see the interesting connection between Titan, 9/11 and the Pentagon, we first have to go back 4 years.

On September 19th, 2000, Govexec.com describes a "never before seen" level of cooperation between the FBI, the CIA, and the Pentagon, that is expected to be involved in "Project Trailblazer"," an initiative to develop a 21st-century "signals intelligence" system that can crack new encryption software, hard-to-tap fiber-optic cables, and cellular phone transmissions" and able "to fight terrorism", referring already to Bin Laden and his"millennium plot" ("Y2K terrorist operation").

#########

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".

Booz is a high rank "member" of military and intelligence.
They're also Corporate Member of the National Military Intelligence Association.

James R. Clapper as head of NIMA

On August 8, 2001, two days after Bush received a new PDB with a clear warning on Bin Laden; Booz, Allen, & Hamilton employee named James R. Clapper as head of NIMA (the National Imagery and Mapping Agency - the 'eyes of America').
(see also "9/11 -The lost war drill?"

Clapper, leads this project for the NRO (National Reconnaissance Office), which at the same time not only develops new satellite capabilities (A NRO payload launched into space on September 8, 2001), but also worked on a terror drill for September 11th (9 AM), crashing planes into the headquarters, as later confirmed by NRO Officer John Fulton.

When BoozAllen started to work for the NRO, it was well known, that they also had been a client of Blessed Relief, the charity
said to be a front for Osama Bin Laden. However, this seemed to be not a problem for the NRO.

On September 11th, Booz Allen Hamilton lost 3 employees in the Pentagon :

Gerald Fisher, Terence Lynch, and Ernest Willcher.
They apparently worked for the government on Trailblazer 1 (which included also another sub cover project, called "Soldier Benefits Tool").

In the same building, Scott Powell and Edmond Young, working for BTG Inc, died on the same day.
In April 2001 BTG aquired RPI, which was working on exercises to respond to possible chemical or biological terrorist attacks.

Only 9 days after Sep11th, it was reason enough that BTG announced to be aquired by Titan Corporation.

#########

It was also Titan, who provided their disinfection systems to Post Offices in October 2001, after anthrax was discovered in mailings
 to members of Congress and journalists.

But the Titan Connection with the department of the Pentagon, which was working on Trailblazer was older than September 2001.

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, SpaceNewsFeed revealed, that Trailblazer is part of the "Trans Orbital Lunar GPS Experiment".

##################

TransOrbital's private, robotic 2001 TrailBlazer's prime mission is to return HDTV video from lunar orbit for use as commercial products. The privately held company is conducting the 2001 TrailBlazer Project as a for-profit Space Venture and will produce various video and other products.

As announced, the "2001 TrailBlazer spacecraft will not rely upon GPS data for its navigation at the moon, but instead will use established means of navigation".

It is not clear, how long before Sep 2001, Titan Corporation was connected with Trailblazer, but one public document mentioned them in March 2001.
Probably Titan was back and forth involved with many other sub contractors they used, to keep in strong touch with the program.

#########

On 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" (possibly the same) "with a U.S. intelligence agency to provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support for Trailblazer".

The Logicon TASC team included a long list of sub contractors, among them Veridian, e-voting specialist Electronic Data Systems Corp, SRS Technologies and Titan Systems Corp.

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.
More odd, the complete building collapsed at 5:25 PM on that day under yet unexplained reasons. NIST, asked by INN World Report in February 2004 in New York, answered, they would look into these circumstances.

#########

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.

The myth, the Pentagon was victim of incompetence and negligence on Sep11th, does still circulate around.

#########

Since Mid 2002, Booz Allen Hamilton (also another specialist of anti-terror drills) has ex-CIA and PNAC member James Woolsey as one of their directors, the other is Dale Watson (ex-FBIHQ), who was recently accused by many different people as part of the 9/11 Cover-up: ex-FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds or Richard Clarke but also, less implicating ex-FBI Thomas Pickard.


Titan profits enormous from their NSA connection.
In November 2002, the NSA selected Titan as prime contractor "for the Enterprise Architecture and Decision Support (EADS) program having a potential value of $533 million over a 24-month base period and five options."

#########

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. The example experiment was modeled on a J-6-sponsored LIVEX that was planned and conducted in parallel, and largely independently of the "Trailblazer" effort."

May 2004:
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.
The International Herald Tribune connects him also with another "Titan translator, a former taxi driver working at the U.S. detention center at Guant?namo 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."

The Case Abu Ghraib might develop faster than some lefties, partisans or non 9/11 skeptics hope.
Probably Donald Rumsfeld's "resignation" is already just the last chance, for yet another cover scheme of the never ending ties of 9/11- and war PMC- profiteers.
Or should we better say: The never ending intelligence 9/11 cover-up?

For those non 9/11 skeptics another Flashback:

1998:
Controversy breaks out over the alleged NSA "Echelon" project, which privacy groups describe as a worldwide surveillance network that eavesdrops on all communications traffic.

#########

2000:
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." However, Hayden and CIA director George Tenet, who also testifies, neither confirm nor deny the existence of the Echelon system.


What happened?

January 24, 2000:
Lt. Gen. Michael V. Hayden was still new on the job -- just finishing his 10th month as director of the National Security Agency -- but he did not need a duty officer to explain the implications of his computer problem. The agency's constellation of spy satellites and its giant listening stations on five continents were still vacuuming communications out of the ether...

The NSA was intended to be the world's premier SIGINT agency, encoding American secret communications while stealing and decoding other nations.

secret communications intell cuba

By the end of March 2001, according to another mainstream source, 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".

#########

A soft political mainstream campaign goes around in the circles of Senate Intelligence Committees:
The NSA announced in the same month, that "Trailblazer is one of its major modernization efforts to the Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) programs."

#########

The NSA is by now convinced to be prepared against any terrorist attack.
In the same year, one of their partner ANSER started to create already before Sep11th, the "Institute for Homeland Security" (between 1999 and early 2001) and organised anti-terror drills.
So did the Pentagon, the NRO and the CIA.

April 2001:
NORAD officially "postponed" a terror drill:
"hijack a commercial airline [sic] (foreign carrier) and fly it into the Pentagon."

May 2001
The DiLorenzo clinic's tri-service staff participated in the simulation exercise "Tricare" for the possibility crash of a Boeing 757 airliner into the U.S. military headquarters


June 2001
BioTerror Drill DARK WINTER, with ex-CIAJames Woolsey (Later BoozAllen)

######### Amalgam Virgo

June 2001:
"Amalgam Virgo 01" . Anti-Terror Drill against Bin Laden


August 6th:
Bush received the famous "PDB", which is originally 11.5 pages long.
Only 1.5 pages got released, but almost 3 years later.



September 10th, 2001:
According to an MSNBC Report, a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly cancelled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns.
Many other reports will also later confirm, that the NSA intercepted an important message:
"Tomorrow is Zero Day".

(It is not clear, if the NSA used one of the Cryptographic Equipments, which they also approved for Titan Corporation.)
