The Abu Ghraib-Titan- 9/11 Connection (TortureGate vs.
By Ewing 2001 (*continuing updates in Addendum)
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
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
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
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
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
In the Taguba report, which described the Torture details in Abu
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
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
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
," 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
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
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
), 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

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
It was also Titan, who provided their disinfection systems to Post
Offices in October 2001, after anthrax was discovered in
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
Trailblazer was much more than just an advanced "spy and satellite
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
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
On June 14th, 2001
, Logicon TASC
Northrop Grumman company, has won a $75 million contract with the
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
The Logicon TASC team included a long list of sub contractors,
among them Veridian, e-voting specialist Electronic Data Systems

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
One of another Trailblazer partner, TRW and their subsidiary,
Blackstone Group, had similar

However, the CIA wasn't able to protect the building on
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
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
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."
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
"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
For those non 9/11 skeptics another Flashback:
Controversy breaks out
over the alleged NSA
"Echelon" project, which privacy groups describe as a worldwide
surveillance network that eavesdrops on all communications
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
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
By the end of March 2001, according to another mainstream source,
, "the NSA began its first major push to involve the
private sector in development of new SIGINT
an initiative it called Trailblazer".
A soft political mainstream campaign goes around in the circles of
Senate Intelligence Committees:
