Obama's CIA brief: infiltrate the Marxist Left and "de-communize" it

December , 2010 -- Obama's CIA brief: infiltrate the Marxist Left and "de-communize" it.

The secret of Obama's phony progressive stance has roots in CIA campus operations....

It is apparent that one of Barack Obama, Jr's major tasks for the CIA, through his work with Business International Corporation, his membership in leftist student groups at Occidental College in Los Angeles and Columbia University in New York, and his work as a "community organizer" in south Chicago was to infiltrate and "de-communize" the Marxist left and bring it into the capitalist globalist fold...

Obama's work complemented that of his mother, alleged Kenyan father, and grandfather in peddling the CIA's influence to leftist nationalists in newly-independent nations in what was once known as the "Third World."

The goal of the CIA's infiltration of leftist movements through Obama's post-Columbia "leftist outreach" employer, Business International Corporation (BIC) was to carry out the tactics championed by former Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and CIA officer Herbert Marcuse, a German-born Jew and self-proclaimed "Hegelian" and "Marxist." Marcuse's agenda included what Yuri Zhukov wrote in Pravda on May 30, 1968: "radical and global negation of all the elements constituting [the industrial socialist society], including Communist Parties." Marcuse, as Zhukov wrote, sought to "cast doubt on the chief role of the working class in the struggle for progress, democracy, and socialism."

Obama's "liberal" policies have succeeded in destroying the progressive left in the United States, including the labor union movement and the social security and welfare programs instituted by the Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Johnson administrations. Obama was groomed by the CIA to do what no Republican or conservative politician could ever do: destroy the American middle class and the American social safety net -- and accomplish these deeds from a contrived "leftist" position. Obama has accomplished his task.

Obama's "radical" campus activities mirror those of University of Paris sixties student radical Daniel Cohn-Bendit, who led "Maoist" and "Trotskyite" student riots while on a stipend from the West German government. Cohn-Bendit's activities on behalf of the CIA and the French extreme right were revealed by French General Confederation of Labor Benoit Franchon on May 27, 1968, while addressing workers at a Renault automobile plant, "Right now, a whole cohort of people do nothing but 'feed the fires,' showering all kinds of praise on the young people's enthusiasm, while actually they are preparing a trap and a snare for us."

One of the CIA tasks of the French student protesters in Paris in 1968 was the derailing of the Paris peace talks between the United States and North Vietnam. The leftist "fifth columnists" were, thus, responsible for continuing the Indochina war well into the Nixon administration. Just as with his his French "radical" for-bearers, Obama came into office on a wave of American anti-war feelings and then not only continued the U.S. military presence in Iraq but boosted it in Afghanistan and Yemen.

Obama's membership in a Marxist Club at Occidental, one of the CIA's favorite campuses for recruiting agents, fit a pattern of CIA meddling in student organizations, particularly leftist ones like Students for a Democratic Society and the National Students' Association, across the nation. Obama's alma mater, Columbia, has a long association with U.S. intelligence that even predates the CIA. The Russian Institute of Columbia University was the brainchild of Professor Gerold T. Robinson in 1944 while he was on loan from Columbia to the OSS. The institute later trained many Slavic language linguists for the CIA's Radio Free Europe and U.S. Air Force personnel who flew signals intelligence missions against the USSR, Hungary, and Albania. Columbia also excelled in training CIA operatives for Ann Dunham-type agricultural "field work" in South Vietnam, Thailand, Bolivia, and Guatemala -- all targets for CIA anti-Communist activities.

In 1967, the year Obama's mother whisked him off to post-coup Indonesia, the CIA was revealed to have had several U.S. college students studying abroad on summer studies programs acting as agents. The Independent Research Foundation, co-founded by "leftist" feminist Gloria Steinem, was revealed to have been a CIA front tasked with attending World Youth Festivals and compiling dossiers on attendees.

Columbia's School of International Affairs (SIA) conducted detailed studies of socialist countries, including the USSR, that were extremely similar to those produced by BIA. Columbia also maintained close links with the Pentagon and the National Security Agency through its support for the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA).

Obama's "faux" journalism work for BIC was authorized by both the CIA and the company's management. Before the post-Watergate restrictions on CIA activities, CIA agents were able to recruit journalists, usually "stringers," without Langley's approval. That changed after the Frank Church and Otis Pike congressional hearings. Somewhere in the bowels of Langley may be CIA-BIC agreements on the use of BIC personnel as CIA assets or agents. And those files may contain the name or names "Barry Obama," "Barry Soetoro," "Barack Obama," or "Barack Sutoro." Obama's other alma mater, Harvard, also maintained close ties with the CIA.

The FBI also had a penchant for hiring informers in liberal and black communities like south Chicago. Informers were screened in files known as PSIs and PRIs: potential security informant and potential racial informant and were paid a stipend. After being approved, PSIs and PRIs became "reliable informants" and were assigned a cover name, an informant number, and a regular salary. A scan of the FBI's files for anyone of Obama's appellations during his time in south Chicago may reveal one or more of such informant files.

The Rockefeller family was fond of funding a number of left-wing organizations. Groups devoted to the anti-nuclear movement were linked to the Rockefeller Family Fund-supported Corporate Data Exchange. Inc. (CDE), a BIC-like "research organization" albeit a tax-exempt one, founded in 1975 to "investigate economic decentralization and corporate control," according to an April 21, 1983, article in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Reviewtitled "Foundations Bankrolling Anti-Nuclear Causes." Three of the CDE's founders were associated with intelligence-gathering for the North American Congress on Latin America (NACLA), a progressive organization that is ostensibly opposed to U.S. interventionism in Latin America.

The CIA archives contain an undated paper titled "The Agency and the Young Employee," that describes the CIA's outreach to young people: "The young Agency employee or potential employee shares common experiences with his counterparts in the sub-culture and, although he may not have been in most instances an active participant in this counter-culture, he has been in close touch with it and its views." The tract continues, ""menial work -- until he 'knows the business' -- is anathema and is met with derision. He similarly views long periods of training, job orientation, and job rotation as wasteful of his time . . . The CIA is just beginning to see the influx of the new generation . . . They can be a great asset to the present and future of CIA."

Indeed, with Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., he was a great asset and continues to be one for the CIA....

I had already argued for the gross failure of American INTEL in various situations and how it had been deeply politicized by a HILL STAFFER--George TENANT without much in the way of real intellectual depth or understanding of how close the CIA came to never existing because of Truman's objections... And my own knowledge of the modern CIA with leaders like Casey who were totally corrupt.... Helms' son 3 years of Law School and friendship ended when he told me he was going to spend a summer working for the CIA. I said but your dad runs it? he said yes.... And I said something like can you spell "nepotism"!

The pardon of Richard Helms was an American tragedy of the first order.... So I am not a fan of that organization's infamous White House Murder INC,.... I have personally known six current and former station chiefs and all were fine people but struggled with Washington's system of utter corruption....

By the way several PhD in economics ran the CASEY investment portfolio when he was Director using CIA assets and information not otherwise publically available. It should have been ended after the Barbaric inside Job of 9/11 together with the FBI, NSA, DIA, OSP, NORAD, NRO, COG.... and rebuilt to protect the USA in its largest sense....

In the end, America will do as its master commands and veto all reasonable and logical peaceful resolutions of anything.... And, once again, American hypocrisy will be exposed to the entire world while the ignorant American sheeple wonder, "why do they hate us?"

Kissinger more critical of Soviet Jews than were the Soviets

December , 2010 -- Kissinger more critical of Soviet Jews than were the Soviets....???

Kissinger did not practice what he preached about Soviet Jewish emigration....

On a side Note....

When it came to the demands being made by Soviet Jews for unrestricted exit visas from the Soviet Union to Israel, a temporary stop-over since many of them actually wanted onward transit to the United States, Canada, Britain, and Australia, President Nixon's National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger was more intolerant of the Soviet Jews' demands than was the Kremlin.

According to tapes recently released by the Nixon Presidential Library, after a visit by Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir to the White House on March 1, 1973, in which Meir pressed Nixon and Kissinger on applying more pressure on Moscow to allow more Soviet Jews to emigrate to Israel, Kissinger told Nixon, "The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern.”

However, the comment by Kissinger about Soviet Jews does not square with the clandestine support that the CIA was giving to Soviet Jews to undermine the USSR.

WMR has obtained from the CIA archives a translation of a Soviet book translated by the CIA's Foreign Broadcast Information Service, titled "The Doom of the Policy and Practices of Zionism" (Obrechenost' Politiki i Praktiki Zionizma), by Leonid Berenshteyn, and published in April 1980.

The book describes how the CIA was using a network of Jewish Zionists around the world to accomplish much more than pressure Moscow to release more Soviet Jews to Israel but a plan to bring down the Soviet Union and other socialist countries. The book describes a CIA "Jewish" department dedicated to inciting populations in socialist countries and committing acts of sabotage. The book states: "The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, in which a Jewish department with about 5,000 agents in the USA and in foreign countries has been functioning since 1953, has a direct bearing on [Simon Wisenthal's] activities. The Jewish department organizes and incites subversive activities and espionage in socialist countries through the use of the five networks organized by the department itself [West Berlin, Brussels, Paris, London, and Vienna], and individuals brought under the influence of Zionist propaganda."

Interestingly, the alleged founding of the CIA Jewish department in 1953 follows by two years the appointment of the CIA's pro-Israeli James Jesus Angleton to the CIA desk responsible for liaison with the Israeli Mossad and Shin Bet....

The book accuses Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal of being a former Nazi agent himself: ". . . during the occupation of L'vov by fascist troops during World War II, Wiesenthal made a 'classical' prison break. A careful study of the circumstances surrounding the 'break' showed that Wiesenthal had entered into a secret conspiracy with the Nazis and went over to their service. We were informed of this in December 1975 by the newspaper THE INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE." The Polish newspaper Zholnezh Vol'nosti is cited as reporting that another stage of Wiesenthal's life was "collaboration with the Israeli embassy in Vienna, and his ties with the intelligence agencies of a number of imperialist countries."

Later, Wiesenthal's "Jewish Documentation Center" in Vienna was at the forefront of the campaign for increased Soviet Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union. Wiesenthal's activities are linked to Israeli propaganda organs like the "Voice of Israel," which are described as having more than the goal of increasing Soviet Jewish emigration from the USSR but to "undermine the Soviet social system from within by inciting nationalism and organizing 'internal opposition.'"

The Soviet book describes how the CIA, with Zionist organizations around the world, fomented anti-Soviet and anti-socialist nation propaganda campaigns with articles "specially fabricated by Zionist pen-pushers." The description is very similar to current anti-Russian campaigns waged by the CIA and George Soros-supported non-governmental organizations (NGOs) around the world....

Described in the Soviet book are the activities of CIA Jewish department-led psychological warfare activities, including "visual agitation and propaganda" by "former Soviet citizens of Jewish origin that had immigrated into Israel and the USA." These activities included "picket lines around Soviet embassies and trade delegations, provocations against Soviet diplomats and delegations from the USSR visiting capitalist countries, boycotts of road tours of Soviet performers and exhibits on life in the USSR, and organization of massive letter-writing campaigns and visa applications from Israel to individual Soviet citizens." One of the leading boycott advocates against the USSR was Professor Hans J. Morgenthau.

The campaign by the CIA and Israeli and Zionist organizations mirror current campaigns on behalf of Palestinians and against Israeli policies. Yet those campaigns are now condemned as "anti-Semitic" by organizations like the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith and the World Zionist Organization....

The tract also references the nascent Jewish mafia in the USSR, one that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, would take over key Soviet industries, create instant billionaires, and establish bases of operations in such countries as Israel, Britain, and the United States and even dominate successive governments in Israel and serve as the leadership for the Israeli settler movement in the West Bank. This crime syndicate is cited as "parasites, swindlers, hooligans, speculators, extortionists, and misappropriators of the people's property." One such provocateur named is Anatoly Scharansky, who, currently known as Natan Sharansky, is now a leading figure in the settlers' movement in Israel and a key Israeli criminal syndicate member. Scharansky's activities with the office of Senator Henry Jackson (D-WA) and the Sokhnut international Zionist organization are described. Jackson's staff included many leading neoconservatives who would shape U.S. foreign policy in the Reagan and George W. Bush administrations, including Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, and Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

Also listed in the book are the last names of three members of the CIA assigned or linked to the U.S. embassy in Moscow who carried out liaison work on behalf of the CIA's Jewish department: Melvyn Levitsky, Joseph Presel, and "Nathanson." Presel, the First Secretary at the embassy, later served as President Clinton's U.S. ambassador to Uzbekistan and was a firm supporter of the pre-Erdogan U.S.-Turkish military alliance. Levitsky was the Political Officer and a First Secretary in Moscow and later, U.S. ambassador to Bulgaria, Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics Matters, and deputy director of the Voice of America.

In June 1998, while he was ambassador in Tashkent, Presel met with his old friend, visiting Israeli Trade and Industry Minister Sharansky, who Presel was accused of maintaining espionage links with twenty-two years prior while both were in Moscow.

In 1977, the Soviet paper Izvestia described Presel and Levitsky as key members of the CIA's Jewish dissident recruiting effort in the Soviet Union.

Sanya Lipavksy, a Jewish doctor and a former dissident, described in the paper how the CIA attempted to recruit him.
Two U.S. journalists in Moscow, George Krimsky with the Associated Press, and Alfred Friendly, Jr., former Newsweek correspondent, were also accused of participating in the CIA's recruiting activities with Soviet Jews. Both reporters denied the espionage charges. Levitsky was charged with trying to recruit a Jewish scientist at a research center near Moscow with Lipavksy's help.

The Soviet book exposes the activities of an Israel Defense Force special subdivision for foreign political terrorism, "Mitzvah Elohim." The unit was formed to commit acts of terrorism against Palestinians and conduct operations to incite infighting between Arab states. Mossad is accused of creating sabotage groups in western countries, including the United States and Europe, to attack "progressive Arab officials" and opponents of Zionism. Mossad is accused of working with the terrorist Jewish Defense League to commit bombing and arson attacks on buildings abroad, including the "UN delegations from the USSR, UkSSR, and BSSR." The Israeli "Security Committee," which directs terrorism and sabotage operations and is composed of members of the Israeli government and General Staff, is said to take "practically no account of the probable reaction of the world public, no matter unfavorable it might be."

The book describes Vladimir Lenin's abhorrence of Zionism and quotes him as stating, "Only the reverential philosophers of an extremist Jewish minority shout against the policy of assimilation. And it is precisely with such philisophers of Jewish extremism that the ideology of modern Zionism is related."

The plight of those Soviets enticed to emigrating to Israel is also revealed: "Jews who had yielded to Zionist propaganda and left for Israel are unable to endure the 'Zionist way of life,' and they end their lives by suicide. Hundreds of thousands aspire to return to their countries from which they came. In 30 years about a million persons, predominantly immigrants from socialist countries, have abandoned Israel....."

Sahrawis' fate in same hands as Palestinians....

December , 2010 -- Sahrawis' fate in same hands as Palestinians....

Another "West" territory, like the West Bank, comes under the control of the Israel Lobby in Washington....

The U.S. ambassadorship in Rabat, Morocco has long been in the hands of key members of the Israel Lobby in the United States. President Obama's ambassador, Sam Kaplan, a Democratic Party fundraising "bundler" from Minnesota, is no exception....

On September 2, 2009, WMR reported on the conflicts-of-interest involved with the US embassy in Rabat: "[a] former State Department official pointed to Morocco as one country that has entered into a strategic partnership with the Israeli Lobby in Washington to advance Moroccan interests. The post of U.S. ambassador to Morocco has been held by two American Jews with close ties to AIPAC since the Clinton administration. Clinton's ambassador to Rabat was Marc Ginsberg. He was followed by Arab-American Edward Gabriel who served until the end of the Clinton administration. President Obama's ambassador to Morocco is Samuel Kaplan, a Minneapolis lawyer and Democratic Party activist and fundraiser....

The former State Department official said that when a former Algerian ambassador to Washington discovered that he had to deal with AIPAC-affiliated lobbyists to advance Algeria's interests in Congress and the White House, he was appalled. The State Department official told him to take a page from the Moroccans on lobbying as an Arab envoy in Washington."

With the failure of the United States to recognize the independence of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), the independence government that claims sovereignty over the former Spanish Sahara, in what Morocco now claims as its province in Western Sahara, the Israel Lobby has managed to place the beleaguered people of Western Sahara under its boot, in the same manner "The Lobby" dictates U.S. policy toward the Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza. Morocco invaded Spanish Sahara in 1975 with a nod from then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and has remained the territory's occupier ever since....

Rather than placing responsibility for Western Sahara with the US embassy in Algeria, where a number of Sahrawi refugee camps exist, the United States has given over responsibility for Western Sahara to the Israel Lobby-influenced embassy in Morocco. This is evident from a December 18, 2009, cable from Kaplan to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dealing with Sahrawi human rights leader Aminatou Haidar.

SADR is recognized by 58 nations, including Cuba, East Timor, Ethiopia, Iran, Libya, Mauritania, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Panama, South Africa, Syria, Tanzania, Uganda, Uruguay, Venezuela, Zambia, and Zimbabwe, and the government-in-exile is a member of the African Union. Many nations that recognize SADR maintain contact with it and the governing POLISARIO front through their embassies in Algiers that liaison with the government-in-exile headquartered in Tindouf, Algeria.

The United States, under Clinton and GW Bush, supported Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara and Morocco has used the Israel Lobby to champion its goals in Washington. Several nations, including India, Colombia, Costa Rica, Kenya, and Peru have been pressured to cancel or freeze their relations with SADR. Under Obama, the same policy toward Western Sahara continues with the Israel Lobby continuing to maintain its hold over the US embassy in Rabat, while U.S. and Israeli-linked real estate and other companies eyeing "opportunities" in the illegally-occupied territory of Western Sahara....

Classified By: DCM Robert P. Jackson for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

1. (C) Summary: Prominent Sahrawi pro-independence activist Aminatou Haidar returned safely to the Western Sahara on December 18 aboard a Spanish military aircraft. She recovered her passport at the airport, completed normal Moroccan immigration formalities, and proceeded from the airport to her home in the company of family members. Sahrawi activists report that she has terminated her hunger strike; that she is in very good spirits; but that she is still in precarious physical condition and under close medical supervision at her home. Western Sahara-based government officials confirm that her arrival took place without incident, and that a spontaneous gathering of well-wishers had taken place with no serious security incidents. After having handled the Haidar case in disastrous fashion, the GOM finally brought the ordeal to an end -- and not a moment too soon. However, the case has left the GOM angry and badly shaken, which will create real challenges as we look toward the next round of formal UN-led Manhasset talks. End Summary.


Home Safely


2. (SBU) Aminatou Haidar, President of the Collective ofSahrawi Human Rights Defenders (CODESA) and a prominent Sahrawi pro-independence activist, returned safely to her home in Laayoune, Western Sahara, in the early hours of December 18. Haidar arrived shortly after 2:00 AM local time (GMT) aboard a Spanish military plane specially equipped to handle medical emergencies, and in the company of her sister and a physician. By prior agreement among Haidar and the Governments of Morocco and Spain, there were no journalists or other passengers aboard, according to Laayoune-based Moroccan Ministry of Interior (MOI) officials. As Haidar arrived, immigration officers met her plane-side and handed her the passport they had confiscated on November 13 (Ref C), and she proceeded to complete normal customs and immigration formalities. There was a beefed-up police presence at the airport, but only Haidar's brother and an uncle came to meet her; by all accounts, she exited the airport without incident, and they drove her home.

3. (SBU) Haidar's return marked the end of a 35-day exile and of a hunger strike that had reportedly taken a terrible physical toll on her. On December 16, her health had deteriorated to the point that she had to be hospitalized in Lanzarote, and she remains in precarious but stable condition now at her home in Laayoune. Djimi Elghalya, a CODESA member and the Vice Chair of the Association of Victims of Grave Human Rights Violations (ASVDH), confirmed by phone that Haider has ended her hunger strike and is beginning to take food under close medical supervision; she is extremely weak, but "her spirit is extremely strong."


Supporters Jubilant, Laayoune Calm


¶4. (SBU) At Haidar's home, a large, jubilant and peaceful crowd turned out in the middle of the night to greet her, according to both press reports and participants. CODESA members told the Embassy that several hundred Sahrawis -- ranging from independence activists to apolitical well-wishers -- gathered to celebrate "a great victory for international law and human rights." Celebrations near her home continued into the late morning, and there were reportedly other gatherings throughout Laayoune. Elghalya said that supporters had intentionally stayed away from the airport, recognizing that the police presence there would be heavy and in a specific effort to avoid any kind of incident. However, she added, no one could keep away the "hundreds" who spontaneously gathered at Haidar's home. Elghalya noted that there were also police around Haidar's home, but they limited themselves to keeping order and did not try to interfere with the celebrations. Separately, Mohammed Jelmous, the Wali of Laayoune (i.e., the Governor and senior MOI official), said that a small group of "youths" who oppose Western Saharan independence did attempt to gain access to the crowds in front of Haidar's home, but police quickly ushered them away after one threw a rock that hit -- but did not seriously injure -- a Spanish journalist. Otherwise, the Wali reported, as of noon Laayoune time, the city was calm.


Comment: An Ordeal Ended


5. (C) Haidar's return comes not a moment too soon, especially in light of the serious down-turn her health had taken in recent days. It also brings to a close a disastrous episode for the GOM, which drew dangerously close not only to perpetrating a case of forced exile, but also to badly jeopardizing its relationships with Spain and other allies through its belligerent handling of the case and some stunningly maladroit diplomacy. Local press and our Laayoune-based Sahrawi contacts have given enormous credit to the U.S., France and to a lesser extent Spain for pressing the GOM to find a solution to the problem. GOM officials have grudgingly acknowledged that the tough -- and consistent -- messages that Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Taieb Fassi Fihri heard on his recent travels to Europe and the U.S. (Ref A) were crucial to the GOM's rather sudden change of heart. Even the provincial Wali in Laayoune told PolCouns, "You see, we listen to our friends." This said, we will need to be mindful that the whole Haidar case has left the GOM badly shaken; indeed, Moroccan officials' (and, we suspect, the other parties') anger and distrust, especially toward Algeria, has reached its highest level in recent years. As we look to a fifth round of formal UN-led Manhasset talks, Ambassador Ross, and we, have our work cut out for us. End Comment.

Big Oil and James Baker Target the Western Sahara


In the midst of America's international campaign against terrorism, the Bush administration is permitting Big Oil to legitimize the illegal occupation of an invaded country--Western Sahara. Formerly known as Spanish Sahara and invaded by Morocco in 1975 (the same year Henry Kissinger acquiesced to Indonesia's invasion and annexation of East Timor and India's annexation of the Himalayan Kingdom of Sikkim)), Western Sahara's occupation by Morocco has neither been recognized by the United Nations nor the Organization of African Unity. The latter actually recognizes the independence of Western Sahara's exiled Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, which is headquartered in remote and squalid desert refugee camps on the Algerian side of the Western Sahara-Algeria border.

In the New World Order of the Bush family, the Western Saharans have little future. That is because the lifeblood of what it means to be a Bush--oil--has been discovered off the coast of Western Sahara. Although Morocco is the illegal occupier of Western Sahara, that did not stop the Oklahoma City-based Kerr McGee Corporation (the company infamously portrayed in the movie "Silkwood") from signing an off-shore exploration deal with Morocco on September 25, 2001, just days after the terrorist attacks on the United States. The timing for Kerr McGee could not have been better.

The group fighting for Western Sahara independence, POLISARIO, once waged a bitter guerrilla war against Morocco. In 1991, POLISARIO signed a cease fire with Morocco but Moroccan troops remained in the disputed territory.

Meanwhile, Morocco continued to pour thousands of native Moroccans into the territory. The 1991 cease fire agreement with Morocco was to have resulted in a referendum on the territory's future. However, Morocco kept delaying the vote until it could salt the territory with enough of its own emigres until they constituted a majority, thus ensuring a final vote would result in voter approval for merger with Morocco.

In 1997, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, who, ironically, was awarded the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize, named former Secretary of State James Baker as his personal envoy to settle the Western Sahara problem. Baker, who would later serve as George W. Bush's fix-it man in Florida's disputed presidential election, began considering rather novel ideas to settle the Western Sahara problem.

Unfortunately, for the Sahrawis, Baker's ideas were all stamped with the imprimatur of Morocco.

Baker, who is as connected to the Houston oil big wigs as J.R. Ewing was to the oil czars in the TV show "Dallas," has his own close ties to Kerr McGee.

His James Baker Institute at Rice University funded a study Called "Strategic Energy Policy: Challenges for the 21st Century." The author of that report is Matt Simmons, President of Simmons and Company Investment Bankers and member of the Board of Directors of Kerr McGee.

It also helps the cause of Kerr McGee that Baker's former spokesperson at the Departments of State and Treasury and close personal friend, Margaret Tutwiler, serves as the U.S. ambassador to Morocco. One former associate of Tutwiler confided that it was no coincidence that landed Tutwiler in Morocco, "She was obviously placed there by Baker and his oil buddies to help cut oil deals." Tutwiler is not only in a commanding position to influence U.S. policy on Western Sahara but she can count upon one of her best friends, former White House Communications Director and close Bush confidant Karen Hughes, to ensure that Morocco's case receives the personal attention of President Bush.

The plan that Baker drew up for Western Sahara (while he was ensconced with his friends at his Jackson Hole, Wyoming ranch) will undoubtedly result in the territory's eventual merger with Morocco. Approved by the UN Security Council, with the strong support of France, whose TotalFinaElf conglomerate also just signed an offshore oil exploration, the plan calls for a five-year delay for a final referendum. In the meantime, Western Sahara will have a weak territorial assembly that will be packed with loyalists of Morocco's

King Mohammed, a close U.S. ally. When the referendum is finally held, sometime around 2006 or 2007, all the Moroccan squatters and occupying troops will be allowed to vote.

On January 7, 2003, the UN announced that Baker would be visiting Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, and Western Sahara to revive his peace plan. But it now seems that with impending war with Iraq and the paralyzing Venezuelan oil strike, Baker is under pressure from his friends in the Bush administration to bring about the commencement of oil drilling off of Western Sahara. Thus the sudden new interest by Baker in a Western Sahara "peace" deal.

U.S. oil companies are chomping at the bit. In its Securities and Exchange Commission filings, Kerr McGee continues to list Western Sahara's Boujdour block (where it has been given permission to drill by Morocco) as being within Moroccan territory, a claim neither supported by the United Nations nor officially recognized by the United States.

Although Baker was to have been an honest broker, even he had to admit to the U.N. Security Council in 2001 that the plan had been heavily influenced by Morocco. Since Bush has enlisted the support of Algeria's President Abdelaziz Boutefllika in the worldwide war against terrorism, it is clear that he was pressured to limit Algeria's historic support for POLISARIO and the Sahrawis. Bouteflika even endorsed Baker's plan. French President Jacques Chirac has referred to Western Sahara as Morocco's "southern provinces," a clear indication of where the West sees the future of the territory.

For its part, the Western Saharans are claiming the deals between Morocco and TotalFinaElf and Kerr McGee are in violation of international law and previous UN resolutions. The Sahrawi President, Mohammed Abdelaziz, condemned the oil deals as an illegal "provocation." The Sahrawi cause is supported by a number of NGOs, former French First Lady Danielle Mitterand, and East Timor's leadership, which knows all too well about being held hostage by oil interests and brutal occupying dictatorships allied with the West. But the oil companies and the Baker-Bush team still holds the trump card. If the Sahrawis, out of desperation, break the cease fire and go to war with Morocco, the anti-terrorism measures undertaken by the United States may seal their fate.

All the State Department has to do is simply declare POLISARIO and the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic terrorist organizations. Their international assets would be frozen, their leaders would be arrested and could be tried by secret U.S. military tribunals and executed, and Big Oil and Morocco would rule the day in Western Sahara. Even groups that support their cause could be targeted and their assets seized. Furthermore, the American public, conditioned to be suspicious of all things Arab, would have little sympathy for nomadic Arabs fighting against a U.S. "ally." It is a scenario that could be replayed in every part of the world where local secessionist groups are pitted against brutal regimes and greedy multinational corporations--the Aceh region of northern Sumatra, West Papua, and Nigeria's Delta Region, to name but a few.

Israel's disdain for an American family's values

December , 2010 -- Israel's disdain for an American family's values....

Cindy and Craig Corrie, the parents of 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist killed by an Israeli military Caterpillar D9R bulldozer in Rafah, Gaza on March 16, 2003, a mere few days before the U.S. military attack on Iraq. Corrie was run over by the bulldozer as she and other non-violent International Solidarity Movement (ISM) members tried to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian family's home....

On March 10 of this year Corrie's parents brought a civil lawsuit against the Israel Defense Force in Haifa, Israel. The case, thus far, has been tainted by mistranslations between Hebrew and English, conflicting testimony by Israeli military witnesses, and an utter lack of support from Hillary Clinton's State Department.... One interesting fact arose during the hearing: there is no Hebrew word for "occupation," meaning the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and east Jerusalem...

Two observers from the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv have been present at the hearings in Haifa but they have taken a low-key approach to intransigence by the Israeli government over conducting a meaningful investigation of the murder by Israeli troops of Corrie. With news from the Lebanese newspaper, Al-AKHBAR, that Wikileaks's founder Julian Assange met with Israeli agents in Geneva earlier this year and, in exchange for money from Israel, agreed to suppress State Department cables portraying Israel in an unfavorable light, the world may never know what role, if any, either the Bush or Obama State Department played in investigating the Corrie murder....

The Israeli military conducted a cursory and incomplete investigation that determined that the bulldozer operator never saw or heard Corrie as he ran her over and the report concluded that Corrie was killed by "falling debris" and not by the bulldozer crushing her to death....

The civil trial is due to resume on December 22 and the Corries, once again and at their own expense, will travel back to Haifa for the hearing. The Rachel Corrie Foundation was established to support "grassroots efforts for peace and justice around the world." Cindy and Craig Corrie were in Washington yesterday and this editor had the opportunity of listening to description of the incident that took their daughter's life and briefly spoke to them about their future plans. The Corries have taken up their daughter's peace cause and they have traveled to Israel, Gaza, the West Bank, and Egypt in support of the cause of justice for the Palestinian people....

After the Israelis killed Corrie, they killed two British citizens, James Miller, a documentary film maker and Thomas Hurndall, a photography student, were killed along the same two-mile stretch of territory near the Egyptian border where Corrie was killed. In the course of the Corries' civil suit trial, it was learned that the Israeli military had issued a standing military order that states: "There is no such thing as civilians in the Gaza Strip." In fact, the bulldozing operation in Rafah in March 2003 was part of an overall military "clearing operation" and there is evidence that a senior Israeli military commander gave orders for the bulldozers to "make a run" at ISM activists in the area being cleared.

The Israelis later made an out-of-court settlement with Miller's family after a British inquest concluded that an Israeli sniper murdered Miller. The inquest also determined that Hurndall was intentionally killed while he was trying to rescue a young Palestinian child from Israeli sniper fire.... Then Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni had determined that the Miller killing was harming Israeli-British relations and a "large monetary settlement" was provided to the Miller family.

Some Israeli military witnesses claim that the order was not given by radio so there are no recordings available. However, the Israelis concede that the order was given by cell phone by the senior commander. However, ALL communications in the Middle East are intercepted by the joint U.S. National Security Agency/British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and SCS...signals intelligence bases on Cyprus....and elsewhere.... and could be used to bolster the Corries' case if not for the influence of the Israel Lobby in Washington in suppressing information about the murder of an American citizen by the Israelis....

The autopsy on Rachel Corrie's body was performed by Dr. Yehuda Hiss of the Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine in Tel Aviv. Hiss was later identified as a key player in Israeli human organ trafficking and he was dismissed from his position. Hiss stood accused of stealing organs, bones and tissue samples from corpses and selling them. Hiss's removal of the human organs and other material was done without the permission of the next-of-kin.

During Hiss's autopsy of Corrie, there was no representative from the U.S. embassy present, which is required by U.S. regulation. The Corries revealed that Hiss had taken "samples" from their daughter's body during the autopsy. Hiss was later implicated in the scandal involving the theft of the organs of young Palestinians killed by the Israeli military and reported in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, after which Sweden and the newspaper were subjected to vile insults of "anti-Semitism" from Israel and its Zionist lackeys around the world....

Very curious .... DHS, Homeland Security in USA is obviously a term that reflects days "gone by" of Nazi Germany. It is a Nazi term pure and simple, yet no one is crying anti-Semitism.... The ADL Bnai Brith, etc. are not saying you can never use this evocative term, in fact the Zionists are administering it and presiding over it... Now that is extremely curious indeed.... Some serious history needs to be uncovered on the real relationship between Judaic fascism and Nazism...they sure seem to be very similar....

The Corries also said that grass roots initiatives to disinvest in Israel and boycott Israeli products are gaining momentum around the world, including in the United States....

On a side Note....

Leaked cables point to Burmese nuclear program...

December , 2010 -- Leaked cables point to Burmese nuclear program...

Iran receives all the U.S. attention for nuclear program while Burma is ignored. The Israel Lobby obviously has no problem with Burma, a source of gems for the dealers in Tel Aviv.....

While the United States has been pressing Iran on its nuclear program, under pressure from the Israel Lobby, Burma, according to leaked State Department cables and previous WMR reports, has been acquiring its own nuclear capability, likely with the assistance of North Korea.

On December 18, 2009, WMR reported: "WMR's Asian intelligence sources report that Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Kurt Campbell and the U.S. embassy in Bangkok is pushing the weak Thai government of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to provide more assistance for Burmese refugees along the Thai-Burmese border and permit more 'black ops' in the Thai military-run districts along the border. The targets for U.S. Special Operations forces are five uranium mines inside Burma, including two in the north of Burma near the Thai border. U.S. special operations teams want to use Kachin and Karen separatist insurgent groups in Burma to help gather intelligence on the Burmese uranium mining operations, as well as enrichment and weapons development.

There are fears that Burma's military junta is seeking to procure nuclear weapons, possibly with the assistance of North Korea. Massive tunnels have been detected being built in Burma and there are signs of increasing military cooperation, including nuclear cooperation, between Burma and North Korea. Earlier this year, details of the secret Project UF6 were leaked to the Thai press. Burma reportedly is constructing a nuclear reactor with North Korea's help, as well as plutonium enrichment facilities. Last year, Mizoram police in India arrested two individuals who were trying to smuggle uranium from Meghalaya in India to Burma. The Burmese military junta feels increasingly besieged by neighboring China and India and has, according to a number of sources, elected to use the 'North Korea option' and go nuclear in order to achieve security in an area dominated by rivals, including nuclear-armed India and China."

The following leaked cables from the US embassy in Rangoon confirm WMR's earlier report:

Reasons 1.5 (B,D)

1. (S/NF) An expatriate businessmanXXXXXXXXXXXX recently volunteered
to an Embassy Officer that he had heard rumors that a nuclear reactor was being
built near Minbu, in central Magway Division on the Irawaddy River. The businessman
added that he personally had seen a "massive" barge containing large-sized rebar
being unloaded on a trip to the area. After asking local residents about the rebar's purpose, he was told that similar size barge shipments were arriving almost weekly and that the rebar was to be used in the construction of unnamed/unidentified factories. In the opinion of the businessman, the quantities involved as well as the diameter of the rebar suggested a project larger than "factories." Along these lines, the businessman noted that there was a new airport near Minbu with a landing strip that, based on its length and
thickness, seemed excessive, adding that "you could land the space shuttle on it."

2. (S/NF) Comment: Rumors of construction of a nuclear facility in/near Magway Division
date back to 2002 and generally refer to alleged Goverment of Burma (GOB)
and Russian cooperation on a nuclear research reactor project. Similar rumors, sans the
"Russia" angle, have been circulating with greater frequency within diplomatic and
expatriate circles since a November 2003 Far Eastern Economic Review (FEER) article
which described signs of growing military ties between North Korea and Burma. While we
have no direct evidence of this alleged cooperation, rumors of ongoing construction of a
nuclear reactor are surprisingly consistent and observations of activity such as that described above appear to be increasing, as are alleged sightings of North Korean "technicians" inside Burma. Martinez

1. (S) Summary: Embassy contacts XXXXXXXXXXXX shared with us on
XXXXXXXXXXXX documents for 112 metric tons of "mixed ore" shipped on January
25 from Burma to China via Singapore. XXXXXXXXXXXX noticed that authorities treated
the shipment as highly sensitive, and suspect it may have included uranium. Our contact
had no direct evidence to support this claim. End summary.

2. (S) XXXXXXXXXXXX, told emboffs that XXXXXXXXXXXX informed him they were suspicious about the behavior of authorities when handling a January 25 shipment of mixed ore from Rangoon. According XXXXXXXXXXXX, security was tighter than usual, surveillance
was heavier, and officials paid closer attention to the movement of the shipment and
activity at the port. XXXXXXXXXXXX also claimed that metals are usually exported in
blocks, whereas the bags in this shipment were filled with loose earth and mud. The
source of the mixed ore, Maw Chi, is also a source for uranium, they claimed.
XXXXXXXXXXXX said the destination in China, Fang Chen, and the shipping line,
Advance Container Lines, were unusual for routine ore shipments. Shipments normally go
to other ports in China via Myanmar Five Star Line, the government-owned shipping line,
according to them. The shipper, Myanmar Ruby Enterprise, is a joint venture, 30% owned
by the Ministry of Mines. XXXXXXXXXXXX

SUBJECT: BURMESE CIVILIAN OFFERS TO SELL PURPORTED URANIUM 238 TO U.S. EMBASSY RANGOON, BURMA REF: A. 2007 STATE 162091 B. USDAO RANGOON IIR 6 812 0131 08 Classified By: CDA Larry Dinger for Reasons 1.4 (b and d)

1. (S//REL to USA, ACGU) Per Ref A, Post is alerting the Department and Washington agencies that on XXXXXXXXXXXX after USDAO Rangoon received guidance from DIA, a Burmese civilian met with members of USDAO Rangoon and offered to sell Uranium-238. The individual had initially contacted the USDAO eight days prior with the offer. The individual provided a small bottle half-filled with metallic powder and a photocopied certificate of testing from a Chinese university dated 1992 as verification of the radioactive nature of the powder. During XXXXXXXXXXXX interview, the individual claimed to be able to provide up to 2000 kg of uranium-bearing rock from a location in Kayah State XXXXXXXXXXXX , and further stated if the U.S. was not interested in purchasing the uranium, he and his associates would try to sell it to other countries, beginning with Thailand. See Ref B for further information.

2. (S//REL TO USA, ACGU) Details of the incident follow, keyed to questions in Ref A:

A) (S//REL to USA, ACGU) Current location of the material: Sample bottle is in transit via classified Diplomatic Pouch to Aberdeen Proving Grounds via DIA.

B) (S//REL to USA, ACGU) Transportation status of material: sample bottle in transit through diplomatic courier service. The sample was wrapped in several layers and placed inside multiple containers, including glass, lead, and wooden boxes/crates. Following instructions from DIA headquarters, USDAO has sent the package via Diplomatic Pouch to Aberdeen Proving Grounds, through DIA, 3100 Clarendon, Arlington, VA. The box is marked "Secret." Dimensions are 16 X 16 X 8 inches. Embassy Rangoon assesses that the host nation is currently unaware of USDAO receipt and shipment of the material. However, the possibility cannot be dismissed that rather than a sale for profit, the seller is attempting to assist in executing a government entrapment scheme.

C) (S//REL to USA, ACGU) As noted, Post assesses that the Burmese government is currently unaware of USDAO receipt and shipment of the sample. Burmese authorities would likely seize any additional samples or stocks of the material if aware of their existence.

D) (S//REL to USA, ACGU) Sample is in transit by commercial air via Diplomatic Pouch.

E) (S//REL to USA, ACGU) Intended destination of material: The subject indicated his first choice for a possible buyer of the alleged uranium is the United States, via the Embassy in Rangoon. Other stated options include the Thai and Chinese Embassies. His intent appears to be to sell the material in Rangoon. Subject made no mention of intent to move material across borders.

F) Unknown.

G - J) (S//NF) Subject identified himself as XXXXXXXXXXXX . (S//REL TO USA, ACGU) The subject brought with him a small bottle weighing 1.8 ounces and measuring 70 mm long by 26 mm in diameter, which was half-filled with a grey metallic powder. He claimed the material in question was Uranium-238 in powder form. The subject claims to represent a small group that wants to sell uranium to the U.S. Embassy. According to the subject, he has 50 kilograms of uranium-containing rock or ore at an undisclosed location in Rangoon, which is stored in a barrel that prevents the radioactivity from being toxic XXXXXXXXXXXX . He estimates there are at least 2000 more kilograms that could be dug up from the site in Kayah State. The uranium was only recently brought to Rangoon (subject would not give a specific time frame). The subject claimed the uranium was discovered in Kayah state in 1992.

XXXXXXXXXXXX (S//REL TO USA, ACGU) The subject claimed XXXXXXXXXXXX know about the uranium. XXXXXXXXXXXX

K) N/A.

L) N/A. M) (S//REL TO USA, ACGU) Interview occurred in a consular interview room (used for walk-ins) at the U.S. Embassy Rangoon.

N) Additional details: Ref B contains all other available information related to this incident.



It is also noteworthy that the above September 23, 2008 cable reveals that a sample of Uranium-238 acquired from Burma was sent via diplomatic pouch to the Defense Intelligence Agency building at 3100 Clarendon Boulevard in a densely-populated urban section of Arlington County, Virginia while en route to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland. The revelation leaves open the possibility that shipments of other dangerous and hazardous materials via diplomatic pouches are also being sent to the Arlington address from US Defense Attaches abroad.

Uranium-238 is a hazardous by-product in particulate form of the military use of depleted uranium in munitions.

The DIA building in Clarendon is located at the Clarendon Metro stop and there is direct controlled access from the Metro station to the basement of the building.

State cables: Uranium-238 from Burma sent to DIA building in densely-populated Arlington, Virginia. Building has underground connection to Washington Metro system.

The product of right-wing "hack" U.S. ambassadors

December , 2010 -- The product of right-wing "hack" U.S. ambassadors

Zelaya charged that US ambassadors to Honduras pre-approve all presidents.....

The latest release of a U.S. embassy cable from Tegucigalpa, Honduras to the State Department paints ousted President Manuel Zelaya as a "rebellious teenager" surrounded by "sinister" Cubans and Venezuelans. The cable is yet another example of the jaundiced view of the world that U.S. career foreign service and political appointees have of the nations where they are posted. In addition, the cable is evidence of the disinformation and propaganda sent to Washington by U.S. diplomats.

The latest cable, dated May 15, 2008, was sent by then-U.S. ambassador Charles Ford, who was replaced by right-wing Cuban-American gusano Hugo Llorens in September 2008. Llorens, who was deputy chief of mission in Madrid, is copied on Ford's cable about Zelaya. Practically Ford's entire foreign service career was in commercial attache positions, which placed him in close contact with Honduras's leading business elite, the group that conspired to overthrow Zelaya in a 2009 coup. In fact, Ford's job after Honduras was as "Business Engagement Advisor" to the Commander of the US Southern Command in Miami, which was an integral partner in the coup by the Honduran military against Zelaya.

Ford's cable also reveals how the U.S. attempted to influence Zelaya's appointments of cabinet ministers and ambassadors and how Ford was trying to undermine Zelaya by obtaining dirt on the president from the right-wing and anti-Zelaya Roman Catholic Cardinal, Andres Rodriguez.

Ford's cable contains a list of right-wing and neocon talking points that could have jumped from the pages of such neocon and Zionist publications as The Miami Herald or Wailing-Wall Street Journal or from the press releases of incoming House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman and Zionist gusano, Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (D-FL)."
  • "Ever the rebellious teenager, Zelaya's principal goal in office is to enrich himself and his family while leaving a public legacy as a martyr who tried to do good but was thwarted at every turn by powerful, unnamed interests."
  • Zelaya remains very much a rebellious teenager, anxious to show his lack of respect for authority figures. Cardinal Andres Rodriguez has told me that not only did he not graduate from university but he actually did not graduate from high school. The Cardinal should know, as he was one of his teachers.
  • There also exists a sinister Zelaya, surrounded by a few close advisors with ties to both Venezuela and Cuba and organized crime.
Ford also shows his anti-Arab feelings by complaining about the marriage of Zelaya's son into one of the nation's leading Honduran-Arab families. No where in cables from Latin America will it be mentioned that leading Latin American Jewish families almost exclusively serve the interests of Israel and American Jewish-owned business interests in Latin America, including in the telecommunications, media, agri-business, textile, arms and mining sectors.

The cable also appears to carry a warning of the following year's coup against Zelaya: "Using an analogy from American football, we will need to continue to carry out an aggressive bend but not break defensive game plan in the run up to the next elections in November 2009." The "aggressive bend" was the coup against Zelaya, one that was supported by the Obama administration. Democratic Party and Zionist influence-peddler Lanny Davis became a lobbyist for the military regime of Roberto Micheletti and now represents the U.S. puppet regime of Porfirio Lobo....

E.O. 12958: DECL: 05/14/2018

1. (S) Summary: Honduran President Jose Manuel "Mel" Zelaya Rosales is a throwback to an earlier Central American era, almost a caricature of a land-owner "caudillo" in terms of his leadership style and tone. Ever the rebellious teenager, Zelaya,s principal goal in office is to enrich himself and his family while leaving a public legacy as a martyr who tried to do good but was thwarted at every turn by powerful, unnamed interests. Various public statements over his tenure suggest he would be quite comfortable as a martyr who tried but failed honorably in his attempt to seek out social justice for the poor. He is comfortable working with the Armed Forces and until recently with the Catholic Church, yet resents the very existence of the Congress, the Attorney General and Supreme Court. Over his two and a half years in office, he has become increasingly surrounded by those involved in organized crime activities. End Summary.

2. (S) I have gotten to know Mel Zelaya quite well over my tenure as Ambassador, and offer these personal reflections on his character, his views of the United States, and on what his presidency means for our interest in the region with the objective of informing future policy choices.

3. (S) Personally, I have found Zelaya to be gracious and charming, quite willing to tell me whatever he thinks I want to hear at that moment. For example, in the period June-August 2007, we must have met weekly, with his agenda focused on explaining his nomination of Jorge Arturo Reina (who lost his U.S. visa for past terrorist connections) as the UN Ambassador, his presence in Managua at Sandinista celebrations and his intentions with regard to Hugo Chavez. It was interesting to see how his explanations differed from meeting to meeting, almost as if he had no recollection of our exchange just a few days before.

4. (S) In the period May-June 2006, Zelaya pressed me hard to obtain President Bush,s approval of his plan to join PetroCaribe. When he met in early June with President Bush who confirmed our strong opposition to his intention, Zelaya later told me that he was surprised that this item had been on our agenda. In short, over an almost three year period it has become crystal clear to me that Zelaya's views change by the day or in some cases by the hour, depending on his mood and who he has seen last.

5.(S) Not surprisingly, Zelaya has no real friends outside of his family, as he ridicules publicly those closest to him. In the days preceding his inauguration, Zelaya without prior notification canceled a country team briefing for his new cabinet. Over a private lunch he explained that he trusted no one in his government and asked me the question: "Who is the most powerful; the person with a knife behind the door or the person outside the door who knows there is someone behind the door with a knife?" It is clear to me that tactically he will work with almost anyone, but strategically he stands alone.

6. (S) Zelaya also has been quite erratic in his behavior. Despite his often harsh public rhetoric, such as describing U.S. immigration policy against illegal aliens as "persecution" by "fascists", Zelaya would meet again with President Bush in a heartbeat. At one point he even planned to go uninvited to a bilateral Bush-Berger meeting in Guatemala. Zelaya not only allowed the first visit of a U.S. warship to mainland Honduras in 22 years, but he delivered a TEGUCIGALP 00000459 002 OF 004 ringing speech extolling bilateral relations on the ship's deck, only briefly expressing pride in Honduras' capture and execution of the American interventionist William Walker. Always suspicious of American intentions, he inexplicably submitted to a psychological profile at my Residence - twice. His erratic behavior appears most evident when he deliberately stirs street action in protest against his own government policy - only to resolve the issue (teacher complaints, transportation grievances, etc) at the last moment. This approach to problem solving seems to be Zelaya's way of gaining acceptance, challenging the established political power structure, and moving his agenda - which is not populist or ideological, but is based on popular appeal.

7. (S) Zelaya remains very much a rebellious teenager, anxious to show his lack of respect for authority figures. Cardinal Andres Rodriguez has told me that not only did he not graduate from university but he actually did not graduate from high school. The Cardinal should know, as he was one of his teachers. The problem is that Mel has acted in this juvenile, rebellious manner his entire life and succeeded in reaching the highest office in the land. No need to change now. He will continue to lead a chaotic, highly disorganized private life.

8. (S) There also exists a sinister Zelaya, surrounded by a few close advisors with ties to both Venezuela and Cuba and organized crime. Zelaya's desperate defense of former telecommunications chief Marcelo Chimirri (widely believed to be a murderer, rapist and thief) suggests that Chimirri holds much over Zelaya himself. Zelaya almost assuredly takes strong medication for a severe back problem and perhaps other drugs as well. His vehement attacks on the press have reportedly endangered journalists opposed to Zelaya's policies. His style and tone in order to get his way is one of intimidation and bullying, threatening tax inspections and worse rather than substantive debate on issues. Zelaya's inability to name a Vice Minister for Security lends credibility to those who suggest that narco traffickers have pressured him to name one of their own to this position. Due to his close association with persons believed to be involved with international organized crime, the motivation behind many of his policy decisions can certainly be questioned. I am unable to brief Zelaya on sensitive law enforcement and counter-narcotics actions due my concern that this would put the lives of U.S. officials in jeopardy.

9. (S) Finally, Mel is very much a son of Olancho, aware of his roots in the land and his family's ties to Honduras since the 1500's. Unlike most other Honduran leaders in recent times, Zelaya's view of a trip to the "big city" means Tegucigalpa and not Miami or New Orleans. While he and his family have been part of the Honduran landscape for 400 years, they have not until recently inter-married with the Honduras elite in Tegucigalpa or San Pedro Sula. His son's marriage in 2006 to one of the country's leading Honduran-Arab families was very important to Zelaya yet a complex event, signifying acceptance into the very elite group that he so very much resents.

10. (S) I have found Zelaya's real views of the United States hidden not too very deeply below the surface. In a word, he is not a friend. His views are shaped not by ideology or personal ambitions but by an old-fashioned nationalism where he holds the United States accountable for Honduras, current state of poverty and dependency. Zelaya,s public position against the Contra War and against the establishment of Joint Task Force Bravo at Soto Cano Air TEGUCIGALP 00000459 003 OF 004 Force Base are manifestations of this underlying viewpoint.

11. (S) Other behavior by the President confirms, in my view, the depth of his feeling. While Zelaya was open to our point of view of the selection of key members of his Cabinet, he was absolutely closed to listening to us on his appointment of his Ambassador to the OAS and to his appointment of Jorge Arturo Reina as Ambassador to the UN. The Honduran voting record in the UN in terms of coincidence with US positions is at the lowest point in decades.

12. (S) More revealing, at public events with key officials present, Zelaya will make clear that anyone interested in becoming President of the country needs first to get the blessing of the American Ambassador. Personally, in private conversations at the Residence, Zelaya has recounted to me, multiple times how a previous American Ambassador had ordered the President of the Honduran Congress to accept the Presidential candidacy of Ricardo Maduro, even though in Zelaya,s view Maduro was Panamanian-born and thus ineligible. Other sources have documented Zelaya's views on this point where his anger and resentment are more apparent than in his exchanges with me. It is clear by the way he recounts the story that on one level he resents very much this perceived dependency yet accepts it exists and looks to me to define for him the rules of the game. He becomes frustrated at times when he believes I am not carrying out this responsibility.

13. (S) Most noticeable to me has been his avoidance of public meetings with visiting US officials. Whether Cabinet officials or CODELs, Zelaya always is a gracious host, but never comes out of the meeting to have his picture taken publicly with our visitors, as he is so anxious to do with other visitors from Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela. Almost all of our meetings take place at my Residence rather than at the more public setting of the Presidential Palace. He made no attempt to disseminate his may photo ops with President Bush after the June 2006 meeting in Washington. The fact is that the President of the country prefers to meet quite often in the privacy of my Residence but not to be seen in public with American visitors.

14. (S) Finally, Zelaya recently is fond of saying that we need to improve our communication, which I interpret to mean that we need to agree with him more often. A similar fate has befallen Cardinal Rodriguez who used to meet, as I do, regularly with the President. As the Cardinal in recent months has found himself in disagreement with Zelaya and is not participating publicly in his projects, Zelaya is working increasingly with pastors in the evangelical community. The Cardinal recently told me that he and the President hardly speak now as the President is unhappy that he doesn't agree with the direction Zelaya is taking the country. For Zelaya, communicating means agreeing unquestionably with his point of view.

15. (S) GOING FORWARD: The last year and a half of the Zelaya Administration will be, in my view, extraordinarily difficult for our bilateral relationship. His pursuit of immunity from the numerous activities of organized crime carried out in his Administration will cause him to threaten the rule of law and institutional stability. Honduran institutions and friendly governments will need to be prepared to act privately and in public to help move Honduras forward.

16. (S) We will need, in my view, to continue to engage Zelaya whenever we can in order to minimize damage and to TEGUCIGALPA 00000459 004 OF 004 protect our core interests. As a rebellious teenager, he will need a significant space to move, in but we must be very direct in our conversations with him as to our core interests. Despite his feelings towards us, he does respect the role the U.S. Embassy is still perceived to play in Honduran society and will expect us in private to be direct and clear in our views. Using an analogy from American football, we will need to continue to carry out an aggressive bend but not break defensive game plan in the run up to the next elections in November 2009. In this way, I believe we can engage Zelaya intensely in the hope of so as to minimizing damage to Honduran democracy and the economy. Ford

At the UK Telegraph, on 13 December 2010, Andrew Gilligan, who blew the whistle on the Iraq dodgy dossier, now blows the whistle on Julian Assange.

Julian Assange Wined and Dined at U.S. Embassy

According to Andrew Gilligan:

Less than a year ago, Assange was entertained at the US ambassador's residence in Reykjavik, Iceland.

Assange chatted with Sam Watson, the embassy's deputy chief of mission.

"He certainly had fun at the party," said Birgitta Jonsdottir, an Icelandic MP and former activist in WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks' Icelandic base is known as "the bunker."

Sam Watson

Comments from Telegraph readers:

1. We have Cass Sunstein writing a Time magazine article promoting WikiLeaks, then he writes an academic article about Cognitive Infiltration to undermine "conspiracy theories" and then we have Assange pretend 911 was not a staged event which everyone with a brain knows it was foster the war on terror.

You have John Young who started the first WikiLeaks link and runs Cryptome saying that WikiLeaks is part of a CIA/Soros operation to take control of the internet...

2. The CIA is doing a bit of social engineering using a 'pseudo-gang' called WikiLeaks and the proles are eating it up while the party members indulge in their 2 minutes hate and the inner party sleeps well at night.

3. Of course Julian Assange went to the embassy function and spent time with the deputy chief of mission; he has to meet his CIA handler somewhere!


"On 5th October, 1986, a Sandinista patrol in Nicaragua shot down a C-123K cargo plane that was supplying the Contras. That night Felix Rodriguez made a telephone call to the office of George H. W. Bush. He told Bush aide, Samuel Watson, that the C-123k aircraft had gone missing." (Cached) This may not be the same Sam Watson.....

The following are good sources on Wikileaks: William Engdahl, Wayne Madsen Report and

But don't simply trust them:

There's also plenty of public information on Wikileaks.

For example, look at their history, who funded them, who's on their board and their affiliations (eg. National Endowment for Democracy (i.e. CIA)). And, of course, what patent lies are they pushing. Assange is infamous for his statements on 911, for the media outlets he leaks to (NYT, Guardian, Spiegel), for the remarkable absence of any substantive leaks that are not in support of DoD objectives, for the inexplicable lack of leaks on Israel despite their flagrant and frequent crimes, and of course for the utter blatant theatre of the rape accusations.

It's quite possible Assange really is just a dupe, rather than a Machiavellian operator. Such stupidity is not rare, particularly if there's money involved to cloud judgment. And there is. Lots.

Assange may or may not understand his masters. In particular, he may at some point be more valuable dead than alive.


And this is important.

... look into who owns the various media companies Assange is dealing with, including his new book publishers. Look into the initial funders.

Anyone with the least interest in the truth will see a clear pattern emerge.

In short, yes, the Zionist billionaires really do form a discreet, interlocked power structure that exerts vast influence, especially on the worldview of the West. Like the pull of a dark star.

After just a little research, you should be familiar with the Sulzbergers, Saban, Kissinger, Grahams, Bronfmans, Murdochs, Redstones, Saatchis, etc. And also the Greenbergs, Crowns, Rothschilds, George Soros, Larry Fink, Marcus Agius, David Rubenstein, and many others..... Even ignoring the svengalis of the media, financial and weapons worlds, there have been many Zionists with intellectual influence in the "cerebral cortices" of Western power: RAND, DARPA, Hudson Institute, the Committee on the Present Danger, Aspen Institute, AEI..... Yehezkel Dror is an excellent exponent.

There is a wider game happening here. The Wikileaks psyop is just a very small part of it.

This wider game is best understood after reading Zbigniew Brzezinski's "The Grand Chessboard" and reviewing maps of resources, especially oil, and current/proposed pipelines and tanker routes.

Essentially, 911 and various other false flags and psyops are intended to hamstring Chinese access to oil and trade routes, and prevent cooperation between Russia and France-Germany, and others such as India and Pakistan.

Zbig is a Rockefeller servant, and despite protests to the contrary, is very much on the same page as the Zionists.

Zbig even clearly states the reasons for the West's slide into police states: "democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization".

Their objective is no less than this:

Full spectrum planetary domination with no possibility of resistance to their tyranny.

If Eurasia worked together to bring down the NATO partners, it's not clear they would be any better.

History, it seems, is a continuing struggle to balance one monstrous leviathan against another, and whatever is good in mankind tries to avoid being stomped in the process.

And this good eventually wins and rebuilds on the ruins.

Yes, the meek will inherit the Earth.

Wikileaks is also an excuse to suppress the free Internet. Very Hegelian: thesis, antithesis, synthesis.

Many of the "Muslim" patsies are involuntary and blackmailed into helping, often criminals involved in the CIA's drug trade. (Look at Kosovo, essentially a pure CIA/MOSSAD narcostate.) But, yep, they're still dumbasses.....

With crackdown on government leaks, expect no straight answers or disclosures on quakes, mass animal die-offs

With a new procedure being implemented by Office of Management and Budget director Jacob Lew on the handling of classified information and reporting on disgruntlement, behavior changes, and contact with the media by federal employees who have access to classified information, there will be a cascading effect throughout the government with increased over-classification of information, according to federal employees who have witnessed such "reinvention of the wheel" on security in the past.

In the wake of the Wikileaks disclosures, Lew is asking department and agency heads in a January 3, 2010, memorandum whether they have mechanisms in place "to report [employee] contacts with the media."

Although the Obama administration vowed to be the most "transparent" and open in recent history, the record shows that federal departments and agencies are classifying more and more information under the "national security" rubric.

The cascading effect of the January 3 memo from Lew will trickle down to agencies that are not normally involved with classified information. However, because of the tendency to over-classify information for a number of reasons, including "critical infrastructure protection," "homeland" security, and "counter-terrorism," agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the US Geological Survey, Interior Department, US Coast Guard, and others that withheld critical information in the Gulf of Mexico BP oil disaster, will have new impetus to restrict information for "national security"-related reasons.

Within the homeland security structure, the new OMB restrictions will undoubtedly filter down to the state and local levels.

OMB is stressing the need for departments and agencies to implement "trustworthiness" programs. "insider threat" reporting procedures, and "security sentinel" or "co-pilot" policing (snitch) procedures.

As more and more reports from around the world are received about massive animal die-offs, as well as other mysterious weather and earthquake anomalies, the Obama administration's clamp down on disclosure of information that is in the public interest will increase the inability of journalists to report the news.

For that, we have Julian Assange, the one-time disruptive and destructive computer hacker, to thank.
