The Benghazi attack was executed by the Green Resistance. The Sept 11 date was merely conincidental.
The attacked US 'consulate' was a CIA operation with a State Dept. cover.
Broadwell's claim that the Benghazi attack was centered on the CIA safehouse, which she insists was housing detainees.
Was Broadwell part of a honeytrap?
An unprecedented amount (20?) of top military leaders were purged in connection to these events.
The Broadwell / Kelley 'affairs' were just smokescreens to hide turf wars between elite factions of US govt.
al Qaeda is a CIA asset and part of the smokescreen.
Obama administration knew about Broadwell affair well before the election. Did they blackmail Petraeus?
Obama administration knew immediately that the 'Innocence of Muslims' film issue was inconsequential.
Romney, Rove and Netanyahu cooked up a futile 'October Surprise' election plot, but it was irrelevant.
The GOP lost the election because they (leadership) are serial racists and alienated everyone other than white racist men.
Susan Rice is a Brzezinski / Albright / Trilateral Commission asset.
The turf gang wars are mainly the Brzezinski Globalists vs. the Neocon / Zionists (who are losing this round).
The Main Stream Media are predictably serving their masters in these events.
The FBI initiated the Petraeus affair investigation in Feb 2012. Obama is lying about not knowing until after the election.

|Sometimes, generals purge politicians. In 1648, during the
English Civil War, Colonel Pride and his troops removed those
members of the Long Parliament who opposed military domination; the
puppets who remained were called the Rump Parliament.
This year, a cabal of generals evidently
believed it could secure the White House for Mitt Romney by staging
the Benghazi incident and using it as the signal for a cold coup
under cover of elections -- probably including
computer-generated election fraud -- to bring down Obama. They
guessed wrong. Politicians sometimes purge generals. When the
French Secret Army Organization (OAS) staged a putsch in Algiers in
April 1961 to prevent the independence of Algeria, President de
Gaulle had to round up and jail a number of generals and other
officers. The Obama administration and its
establishment controllers appear to be ousting a number of
intelligence and military officials who took part in illegal
operations to replace Obama with Romney. These sackings are
being presented to the public under the guise of soap opera sexual
infractions or expense account padding, in the hope of hiding some
real mechanisms of power from the popular gaze. The outgoing US
military cabal favors the extension of colonial wars, like those in
Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as an attack on Iran. Good riddance.
General Petraeus: Neocon Who Sought War
with Iran The most spectacular example is the fall of General David
Petraeus, the CIA director, and one of the
leading US advocates of an early war with Iran. The heads of
several other rogue figures are rolling. The result is one of those
rare moments when parts of the rogue network
or invisible government can be observed by those who have enough
knowledge to understand what they are seeing. But the firings
have only scratched the surface. The Romney
backers were made up of neocons, Bush holdovers, and members
of the Mormon Mafia in the intelligence community -- a relatively
narrow base. The Obama supporters were the
Brzezinski-Nye soft power group and military opposed to the
Iran war. The neocons and reactionary Mormons wanted to restore
aggressive war and wholesale bombing as the preferred option for US
foreign policy. Although they love drones and assassinations, they
want to keep significant US conventional forces in the Middle East.
The pro-Obama group wants to avoid large
conventional commitments. They want to rely on cyber-warfare,
drones, assassinations, bombing, raids by special forces, and
economic warfare in the form of trade sanctions and technology
embargoes. When they want to destroy a country like Syria,
they do not favor direct US invasion or bombing, but rather seek to
use proxies like Turkey and the al-Qaeda patsy network to get the
double benefit of weakening both ally and enemy. Above all, they
love color revolutions and soft-power subversion.
Benghazi, September 11: CIA assets kill US envoy while CIA team is
ordered to stand down and other CIA assets fail to intervene The
Benghazi consulate was prevalently a CIA post, with significant
military capabilities. Ambassador Stevens had strong CIA connections
and served as a liaison with the al-Qaeda-linked terrorists of the
Benghazi-Derna-Tobruk corridor, whom the CIA is using for the attack
on Syria. His last conversation with a Turkish diplomat was
evidently a discussion on this topic. Stevens and others thought
they had nothing to fear because their relations with the Islamist
fighters were so cordial. The attack that killed Stevens was carried
out by forces under the control of Sufiyan
Qumu (also Kumu or Gumu), who had been held in Guantanamo for
several years and released as a CIA asset for the overthrow of
Gaddafi. A significant group of CIA paramilitaries stationed nearby
was ordered to stand down by the CIA command structure. Another CIA
asset, the February 17 Martyrs Brigade,
which had in the summer of 2011 assassinated General Younes in order
to help the CIA operative General Hifter to
take control of the rebel army, had contracted to provide
additional security, but also did not intervene. General Petraeus
went to the movies that night. On September 14, Petraeus told the
House Intelligence committee that the Benghazi incident had been
spontaneous, a demonstration gone violent. This is the line which
Susan Rice mouthed on television in
mid-September. (She should be fired for other reasons.) The Obama
administration was in any case eager to hide the fact that it had
turned Libya over to al-Qaeda. The goal of
Benghazi was an early October surprise to Carterize Obama,
and the CIA was commanded by Petraeus. Petraeus arrived at the CIA
on September 6, 2011. Within a month, a new provocation was launched
against Iran in the form of absurd accusations that members of the
Quds Force were plotting to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to
Washington, DC. Intelligence community conduit David Ignatius wrote
at the time that a big reason the implausible plot story gained
credibility was the “fact the CIA meaning Petraeus] and other
intelligence agencies gathered information corroborating the
informants’ juicy allegations” implicating the Quds Force and the
Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps. In reality, the patsies
involved came from the Drug Enforcement Administration and/or the
Mujaheddin e-Khalq (MEK), an anti-Iranian terrorist force maintained
by the US in Iraq. The MEK has now been rewarded by being removed
from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations. (David
Ignatius, “Those Keystone Iranians: Why Such a Crude at
Assassination Plot?, Washington Post, October 12, 2011)
The goal of the operation was to abort
possible diplomatic solutions to tensions between NATO and Iran.
In Washington, the neocon Petraeus was always
considered as General Betray-US, Bush’s warlord and the key front
man for the Iraq surge. He was the darling of the civilian
chickenhawk neocons, who saw in him a presidential vehicle to return
to power after the debacles in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Petraeus’ neocon sherpas were Frederick Kagan
and Max Boot, who also helped him to refurbish his image
concerning Israel. Obama was always afraid that Petraeus would run
for president, and when Romney took the nomination, feared that
Petraeus might be a candidate for vice president. Like General
George Marshall on the evening of December 6, 1941 -- who stayed
conveniently out of the loop under various pretexts because he
wanted the Pearl Harbor attack to occur as a means of damaging
President Roosevelt -- Petraeus was at the movies during the
Benghazi attack, attending a private screening at the Canadian
Embassy of the movie Argo with Ben Afflek, which deals with a 1979
covert CIA operation in Tehran. The Night of the Long Knives The
hatred of key members of the US officer corps for Obama was
illustrated through the comments of Petraeus’ friend, the warmonger
General Stanley McChrystal, who was
ousted in June 2010. In addition to Petraeus, the following officers
are also either sacked or the object of scandals or investigations:
Marine General John R. Allen is in
trouble. Currently the commander of US forces in Afghanistan, Allen
had been slated to take over from Admiral Stavridis as NATO Supreme
Commander, but Obama has now put this nomination on hold. Allen is
accused of having an improper relationship with the Tampa, Florida
hostess and socialite Jill Kelley,
originally of the Lebanese Khawam family.
Mrs. Kelley had insinuated herself into the social circle of
generals at McDill Air Force Base, the location of the US Central
command. Allen and Petraeus both wrote letters to a judge supporting
Kelley’s twin sister in a child custody fight. According to some
accounts, Allen sent either 30,000 pages or 30,000 e-mails to Kelly
over a few years. Allen denies wrongdoing, but the handwriting is on
the wall. General Carter Ham,
commander of US Africom, whose area of responsibility includes
Libya, manifestly failed to send forces to stop the attack on the
Benghazi consulate and CIA post. Panetta announced on October 18
that Ham was being replaced. The official line is that Ham decided
to retire of his own volition. There were many days of confusion in
Washington about his leaving. Admiral James
G. Stavridis, the outgoing NATO Supreme Commander, has been
officially reprimanded by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus for lavish
spending on his personal lifestyle, including a junket to a wine
dinner in France. He will soon leave his post.
General William E. “Kip” Ward, who
commanded US Africom from October 2007 to March 2011, presided over
the preparation and launching of the attack on Libya. On the
surface, Ward is accused of spending several hundred thousand
dollars of government money and resources on family members, luxury
junkets, and flights. He had been under investigation for a year and
a half, but it was announced on November 13 that he would be fined
$82,000 and demoted from full general to lieutenant general,
reducing his pension. Lieutenant General
Patrick J. O’Reilly, the Director of the Pentagon’s Missile
Defense Agency, has also been reprimanded by the Defense
Department’s Inspector General for intimidating and humiliating
subordinates, thus creating a work environment characterized by one
subordinate as “management by blowtorch and pliers.” (Washington
Post, November 15, 2012) O’Reilly is being ousted from his post
before the conclusion of the usual four year tenure, and demoted to
major general. His departure was deplored on the floor of Congress
by Representative Mo Brooks of Alabama, a reactionary and racist
Republican. Rear Admiral Chuck Gaouette
was the commander of the USS Stennis carrier battle group, currently
stationed in the Arabian Sea, near Iran and other possible targets
for aggression and/or Gulf of Tonkin provocations. Gaouette is
currently being investigated for “inappropriate leadership judgment”
while on station in the Middle East.
Brigadier General Jeffrey Sinclair, second in command of the
82nd Airborne Division stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and
a key man for Afghanistan logistics, is accused of raping and having
an adulterous affair with a female captain he had gotten transferred
to his command. The prosecution has already sabotaged its own case,
raising the chances that the case will be thrown out of court, while
charges of pornography and alcoholism on duty may have been
invented, pointing once again to a political motive. Press accounts
feature Sinclair’s assertion, “I’m a general. I’ll do whatever the
expletive] I want.” Commander Joseph E.
Darlak, commanding officer of the frigate USS Vandegrifft and
two other senior officers having been removed after a drunken orgy
during a visit to the port of Vladivostok, Russia. Details are
sketchy, but the goal of the escapade might well have been a
provocation against the Putin government. According to one account,
over 20 top naval officers have been fired during 2012.
Christopher E. Kubasik was fired as
president and Chief Operating Officer of Lockheed Martin Corp., the
top US defense contractor in 2008 and 2009. Lockheed Chairman Rob
Stevens had allegedly requested an ethics investigation, which
revealed a sexual affair with a subordinate. Lockheed’s electronic
warfare and cyber warfare capabilities are formidable.
Naturally, it is impossible to know at this
time how many of these cases are actually based on the reasons
stated, and how many actually involve complicity with operations
targeting the White House. On the Thursday after the
presidential vote, Defense Secretary Panetta ordered Joint Chiefs of
Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey, an ally of Obama, to conduct
a wide-ranging review of misconduct by senior military officers. The
general public is supposed to think that this review will be mainly
concerned with wrongdoing such as adultery, sexual harassment,
embezzlement, and the like. But the reality is most likely a
purge of officers associated with the
pro-Romney coup machinations of September-October 2012. With
all these figures removed, it is likely to be more difficult for
Israel’s Netanyahu to launch his war against Iran in the way that
had been planned. He has therefore fallen back on the option of
starting a smaller war in Gaza as a means of stabilizing the
US-UK-Israel war party while other options are sought.
The rogue network, now a wounded beast, must be counted doubly
dangerous. The Mata Haris Mata Hari’s method was to seduce
French generals and send their secrets to Berlin. The cover story
for Petraeus’ ouster involves his affair with
Paula Broadwell, who fraternized extensively with the general
in Afghanistan while she was preparing a fawning campaign biography
of the general entitledAll In: The Education of General David
Petraeus -- not to be confused with Flaubert’s L’Education
sentimentale. Broadwell is a lieutenant
colonel of military intelligence with a background at the Joint
Special Operations Command and, according to some accounts, a
knowledge of Arabic. She says she has a top secret security
clearance “and then some.” She has hobnobbed at the Obama White
House and with Karl Rove.
By all indications, and whether she knew it or not, she was
deployed to embroil Petraeus with a view to bringing him down, and
she succeeded. When the dalliance became known to the FBI and thence
leaked to GOP Congressmen Reichert and Cantor, Petraeus was told he
had to resign by intelligence czar James Clapper, a creature of
Obama. Jill Kelley and her twin sister
Natalie Khawam are also redolent of the
intelligence community. Their focus was
evidently to lead both Petraeus and Allen onto the flypaper.
The Rogue Network Down but Not Out The US rogue network has been
exceptionally active since the attacks of September 11, 2001 in
which the rogues were heavily implicated. In the spring of 2007,
Vice President Dick Cheney argued
unsuccessfully for an attack on Syria on behalf of the rogue network
whose spokesman he was. In August-September 2007, a
B-52 bomber loaded with six nuclear
cruise missiles was in effect hijacked by the rogue network -- taken
out of legal US command -- and flown from North Dakota to Louisiana,
presumably on its way to a bombing mission in the Middle East. The
B-52 was stopped at Barksdale AFB in Louisiana. Months later,
Defense Secretary Robert Gates fired Secretary
of the Air Force Michael W. Wynne and Air Force Chief of Staff T.
Michael Moseley for poor management of nuclear weapons. A
special board under James R. Schlesinger studied nuclear safety, and
doubtless also whom to fire. For knowledgeable observers, a window
into the rogue network had been opened. On Christmas Day, 2009, the
Nigerian underwear bomber Mutallab
attempted to blow up a passenger airliner in the skies over Detroit.
During the first week of January, Richard Wolffe of MSNBC reported
that the Obama White House had concluded that certain federal
officials had acted to prevent Mutallab’s operation from being shut
down because they wanted to damage the Obama administration. Still
later, Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy told a House
committee that the State Department had wanted to revoke
visa, but had been prevented from doing so by another (unnamed)
federal agency, under the pretext that the Nigerian suicide bomber
was being tailed. The Obama administration cravenly backed off
further public investigation of this incident, allowing the rogue
network to strike again in Benghazi. (All these events are described
ORCA: Why the Pro-Romney Vote Fraud Did Not Materialize The purge of so many Romney supporters from the intelligence community and from the military may explain why the expected computer-generated Republican election fraud failed to materialize in the expected dimensions in so many states. Tagg Romney and his associates, many of them investors in Bain Capital, had notoriously bought control of voting machines in almost a score of states, including Ohio. What frustrated the design to steal the election? Perhaps this operation was disrupted and aborted by investigations conveniently timed and targeting some of the main pro-Romney intelligence and military figures in the rogue network. The answer may also be related to the apparent failure of ORCA, Romney’s data-mining and data management operation, which was supposed to help GOP volunteers get out the vote, but which may have possessed additional and more sinister dimensions. But, as David Gewirtz of ZDNet wrote on November 13, ORCA “got harpooned. ORCA beached. It flopped. It died in the sun. It failed oh-so-bad.” And with it failed the hope of Romney’s backers that they could seize the White House. The current scandals are extraordinary because they cast light on the rogue network or invisible government of the United States, a topic which is usually strictly taboo for the mass media. For this reason, David Ignatius of the Washington Post, considered close to the intelligence community, is already a warning that it is time to call a halt. Sunlight, Ignatius warns, can be “toxic under the wrong circumstances.” “For a reminder of why it’s dangerous, take a look at The Crucible and the Lessons of History,” Ignatius concludes. (David Ignatius, “A Modern Witch Hunt,” Washington Post, November 18, 2012) In other words, time to stop the purges before they threaten to engulf the entire rogue network and thus the entire establishment. Patriotic citizens and those who want peace, by contrast, must hope that the revelations go on and on. WT/HSN
|WMR Sex, Lies, and Audiotapes -- the right-wing plot against Obama|
|November 12-14, 2012 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Update
2x. Sex, Lies, and Audiotapes -- the right-wing plot against Obama
The Washington Post and The New York Times, America's designated "newspapers of record" -- false record, it should be added -- are working overtime to spin the General David Petraeus scandal away from the actual story. There are many details that have not yet emerged and some informed speculation remains the order of the day. However, based on what we know know, a perhaps somewhat unwitting Petraeus; several Republicans, including failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, Republican Party Svengali Karl Rove, Romney adviser Dan Senor; and the Binyamin Netanyahu government in Israel were involved behind the scenes to discredit and ensure the electoral downfall of President Barack Obama by engineering what Romney reportedly himself described as a "Jimmy Carter Strategy" in an October Surprise. The strategy was to bring about an incident in the Middle East that would result in a besieged or overrun U.S. embassy, like the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979 and 1980, that would result in charges that Obama, like Carter, was weak and ineffectual in dealing with a major crisis. Such a scenario would erase the street credentials Obama pocketed in the "raid" on Osama bin Laden. Raid is in quotes because the jury remains out on whether the U.S. Navy SEAL attack on the compound in Abbottabad actually resulted in Bin Laden's death or was a staged event to boost Obama's national security resumé. But that is another story for the time being.
Romney appears to be at the center of the Jimmy Carter Strategy and it is worth noting that the involvement of Petraeus and other flag rank officers, including ousted U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chief General Carter Ham and Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette, the commander of the Middle East-deployed USS John Stennis aircraft carrier strike force. Gaouette was sacked by the Navy for “inappropriate leadership judgment” while his carrier group was in the Pacific en route to the Indian Ocean. Although the Stennis group was in the Pacific during the U.S. consulate siege in Benghazi on September 11, Gaouette's departure had nothing to do with personal misconduct and was very unusual during a deployment. WMR is being informed by sources throughout the military services that a number of senior military officers throughout the world were involved in the Romney campaign's Jimmy Carter Strategy to embarrass Obama prior to the election and that the insubordinate, if not treasonous, behavior extended to Petraeus's reported paramour, Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel Paula Broadwell.
Broadwell co-wrote Petraeus's biography "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus," with Washington Post reporter Vernon Loeb, who, although a favored recipient for official "leaks" from the Pentagon and CIA, has been the subject of National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap surveillance as part of FIRST FRUITS, the former name of a joint NSA-CIA project designed to plug leaks of classified information. Although Loeb is the Metro editor at the Post, his continued links with U.S. intelligence community sources keeps him on the NSA radar screen. Conversations intercepted between Broadwell and Loeb, especially those using Petraeus's classified and encrypted cell phone and e-mail system, may have been passed to the FBI by NSA. The NSA possesses all the decryption keys for encrypted government communications, including those used by the CIA director.The Petraeus biography, published by the Pearson-owned Penguin Group in London (Broadwell happens to be a PhD student at King's College in London), was a sycophantic portrayal of the commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the chief of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM). By writing a puff piece on Petraeus, Broadwell was rewarded with a high degree of access not only to Petraeus but his intelligence and, as has now been reported, his classified computer system and email account.
Broadwell and Petraeus first met at Harvard in 2006, prior to Petraeus assuming command of allied troops in Iraq. Broadwell made several visits to Afghanistan where Petraeus was commander of U.S. and allied forces. WMR has learned from military sources that during all of his commands in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in Tampa, Petraeus was known as a "lady's man," and that his troops quietly grumbled about his favoritism toward certain female subordinates and women outside his chain-of-command, including journalists.
Broadwell's and Loeb's book was praised by the favored literati. NBC News' Tom Brokaw wrote: "General Petraeus is one of the most important Americans of our time, in or out of uniform. This riveting, insider's account of his life and education is at once instructive and inspiring." Biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin wrote, "This majestic biography will set the standard for all future works about General Petraeus. With superb narrative skill, Broadwell simultaneously provides an intimate look at Petraeus the man, a fascinating account of modern warfare, and an elegant study of leadership." And Washington's bloviating pundit David Gergen wrote, "Paula Broadwell, soldier-scholar in her own right, tells the Petraeus story masterfully, providing especially rich detail and insight into his Afghanistan mission. This book helps us understand how Petraeus has become the living legend he is."
The plot involving "King David" was uncovered on the shores of Galilee
It is perhaps fitting that the man referred to as "King David" by his detractors in Iraq would have seen the plot against Obama unraveled on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Petraeus's former spokesman retired Army Colonel Steve Boylan, hired by Petraeus to deal with the media in the aftermath of Petraeus's extramarital affair with Broadwell and revelation of a two-way spat between Broadwell, who referred to Petraeus as "Peaches," and Arabic-speaking Lebanese-American Jill Kelley, a "close" Petraeus friend who works as an "unpaid liaison" officer between the State Department and the Joint Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force base in Tampa, may have unwittingly let the cat out of the bag by describing the time line of Petraeus's affair with Broadwell. Boylan said Petraeus's affair with Broadwell, with whom he appeared to fancy "sex under the desk" according to emails between the two, began nine or ten months before he ended it four months ago. Using Boylan's math, which obviously came from his friend Petraeus, that means the affair ended in July of this year but began around October 2011. Petraeus was sworn in as CIA director on September 6, 2011.
We also know that according to Republican Representatives Dave Reichert (R-WA) and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), an unidentified FBI agent leaked the Petraeus affair story first to Reichert and then Reichert, instead of following up himself with FBI director Robert Mueller or Attorney General Eric Holder, informed Cantor. Cantor's chief of staff, Steven Sombres, it is being reported, phoned the FBI on October 31 to tell them about the conversation that Cantor had with the FBI "leaker."
In what may be the most critical part of the Petraeus case is that the FBI "deep throat" may be a "no throat." Sombres and Cantor's deputy chief of staff Doug Heye have been identified as key players in the FBI leak story. However, they were also identified as FBI targets in an event that took place a little less than two moths before Petraeus became CIA director. Cantor led an 80-member House congressional delegation (CODEL) to Israel in August 2011. On the evening of August 18, members of Cantor's staff, and some 30 Republican Representatives were involved in a skinny-dipping incident at the David Citadel Hotel in Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee. The CODEL was funded by the American Israel Educational Foundation, a branch of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS) was identified as one of the skinny dippers. Also participating in the late night bathing were Sombres, Tim Berry, chief of staff for GOP Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA); Laena Fallon, Cantor’s former press aide; and Emily Murray, a top policy aide to McCarthy. Several congressmen and their aides reportedly got drunk at the hotel before they jumped into the sea. Joining the swim party were Representatives Steve Southerland (R-FL) and his daughter; Tom Reed (R-NY) and his wife; Ben Quayle (R-AZ), Jeff Denham (R-CA), and Michael Grimm (R-NY).
The FBI agent assigned to investigate alleged threatening emails sent by Broadwell to Kelley has been reported by The Wall Street Journal to be the same FBI "employee" who leaked details of the Petraeus matter to Reichert and then to Cantor. The story of the agent is falling apart as the Journal has now reported that the FBI agent became obsessed with Kelley and sent shirtless photos of himself to her. In the world of intelligence, such extraneous information is termed "clutter" and is designed to blur the actual facts.
The FBI investigated the Galilee incident for possible Israeli intelligence compromise of the House members and their staff. However, the FBI never revealed the outcome of its investigation. It was Heye who announced that Cantor had satisfied the FBI's concerns. If the FBI's investigation continued, other doors may have opened, doors that led to a planned 2012 "October Surprise" against the President -- doors that led to Cantor's involvement with the Romney campaign in staging the October Surprise. Romney's senior foreign policy aide was Dan Senor, who is close to Netanyahu and Cantor.
Broadwell in Israel
Paula Broadwell is a master's degree graduate of the University of Denver's Josef Korbel School of International Studies, named after the father of former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and the alma mater of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, whose mentor was Professor Korbel. The University of Denver, like the University of Chicago, has become a spawning ground for neocon academics. Broadwell's fellowship at Harvard University reportedly included abroad in Syria and Iran. Broadwell is reportedly fluent in Arabic. Broadwell, in recent years, has been a frequent visitor to the Persian Gulf, Jordan, and, more importantly, Israel. But even as a West Point cadet, Broadwell spent time in Israel. She admitted in a July 29 interview that while at West Point, she "was exposed to the Israeli Defense Forces as well as the Palestinian Liberation Organization. I met high level politicians and officials and gained an understanding of the dynamics of life on a communal kibbutz, in a refugee camp, and in a Bedouin village, having 'embedded' within each community."
Broadwell, in the same interview, stated that she conducted "surveillance on the DMZ in Korea, providing conflict resolution training in Africa . . . participated in] document exploitation against war criminals in Bosnia, jumping out of airplanes to earn Thai, Indian, and Czech parachute wings, putting together infiltration plans for special forces commandos, serving undercover with the FBI." In other words, if Broadwell can be believed, she was an intelligence agent, herself, and one who wrote a self-serving book about Petraeus in cahoots with a Washington Post editor. The old ties between Langley and the Post continue to flourish.
The catalyst that set the Middle East on fire
The suspicious deaths of two national security agents who may have had knowledge of a threat by Israel and the Romney campaign to discredit Obama add to the plot against the President. On May 10, 2012, Secret Service agent Rafael Prieto, a native of Palmdale, California, accompanied President Obama to Los Angeles where he attended the "Starmageddon" fundraiser at the home of actor George Clooney at 151 El Camino in Beverly Hills. Previously, Prieto was assigned to the security detail of former President Bill Clinton and was based out of the White Plains, New York FBI office. A member of the FBI's national security team in Los Angeles was Stephen Ivens. Ivens's wife Thea said that her husband was unable to sleep over something that was causing him to have anxiety attacks.
On the evening of May 10, Ivens, the father of a two-year old son, grabbed his gun at his home on the 700 block of Scott Road in Burbank and went out on foot into the Burbank foothills. Ivens was reportedly distraught and may have been meeting someone. Prieto happened to be in Los Angeles at the same time. On July 20, after a massive search, Ivens's body was found behind a church near his home on the 2600 block of Scott Road in Burbank after two hikers reported a strange odor. However, on the second day of their search, police and the FBI used dogs who alerted on Ivens's scent in the foothills but never discovered his body. The Los Angeles medical examiner's office, which over the decades, has issued findings that defy logic, concluded that Ivens's died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the scene where his body was discovered some three months later.
It is unusual for a Secret Service agent to be transferred from a former President's detail to that of a current President. However, in the case of Prieto, he joined Obama's detail from Clinton's. After a period of frostiness, Obama and Clinton patched up past differences and Clinton became one of Obama's chief campaign surrogates. If Obama was made aware of a plot against him by senior military and intelligence officers, he may have confided in Clinton who, after the Monica Lewinsky affair, would have asked Obama how trustworthy is Secret Service detail was. Clinton's experience with FBI White House liaison Gary Aldrich, who, in 1996 wrote Unlimited Access: An FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House, which exposed Clinton to charges of national security lapses, made the ex-President a believer in trust of the security detail. If Obama expressed any reservations about his security, Clinton may have suggested Prieto and a transfer from New York to the White House may have been arranged.
On the evening of October 27, Prieto's body was discovered in his car in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of northwest Washington, DC. It was reported that Prieto left the engine of his car running in an alley at 19th and Kenyon Streets and that he died from carbon monoxide poisoning. WMR was informed that a DC policewoman was taking photographs of homes across the street from Prieto's residence, which he shared with another Secret Service, on the 1900 block of Kenyon Street. The policewoman was photographing the homes after Prieto's body was discovered. If Prieto died from what was already concluded to be a suicide, why were the DC Metropolitan Police interested in nearby homes. The DC police had also roped off the intersections of 19th and Kenyon Street and Kenyon Street and Adams Mills Road during a suicide investigation that involved a dozen DC police cars and a crime scene mobile unit and unidentified trucks.
Prieto was said to be despondent after he was discovered to have had a six-year affair with a Mexican woman. Prieto was identified by another Secret Service agent who was under investigation for a scandal involving Secret Service agents on Obama's detail in Cartagena, Colombia and prostitutes during the Summit of the Americas last April. WMR reported at the time that the compromising of the Secret Service agents was part of a plot by Netanyahu and Mossad operatives who run the prostitution racket in Cartagena to discredit Obama.
A few weeks after the Cartagena scandal broke, Prieto and Ivens were in Los Angeles during the Obama fundraiser where another plot was being hatched, one that would create a firestorm in the Middle East and lead to the 9/11/12 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya by Ansar al-Sharia guerrilla forces. The U.S. compound attackers were associated with Al Qaeda, the always-reliable entity that comes to the assistance of the neocons every time American national security is on the sacrificial altar of the "Temple of Treason."
A 13-minute long trailer for an anti-Islamic film called "The Innocence of Muslims," which depicted the Prophet Mohammed as a sex pervert, was ready to be released on YouTube as the match that would set alight the Middle East. The trailer was filmed the year before as "Desert Warriors" and was the project of an odd consortium of Egyptian Coptic Christians, Hollywood porn movie producers who are Jewish, including Robert Brownell, aka Alan Roberts, and a real estate developer named Jimmy Israel. Brownell, who used a number of porn actors in the movie who were told that the main character was George" and not Mohammed, has produced such "classics" as The Sexpert and The Happy Hooker Goes to Hollywood. Both Roberts and Israel were associated with Egyptian-American Copts named Sam Bacile, whose real name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (Screen Actors Guild name Abnob Nakoula Basseley), and Joseph Nasralla Abdelmasih, an anti-Muslim who runs Media for Christ and has connections to anti-Muslim Zionist activists Pam Geller, Robert Spencer, and David Horowitz. Other players in the film production were Steven Klein and Gary Cass, both anti-Muslim Christian fundamentalist activists. At about the same time that Cantor was hosting 80 members of the House in Israel, courtesy of AIPAC, and Petraeus and his paramour Broadwell were taking up residence at Langley, production was underway on the anti-Islamic video being filmed in front of as green screen in Duarte and on the set of what is known as "Baghdad Square," a Middle East war setting located at the Blue Cloud Film Ranch in Santa Clarita, California. Paramount's television division built the set. Paramount TV is part of CBS, which is owned by arch-Zionist Sumner Redstone.
Santa Clarita is up Interstate 5 from Ivens's home in Burbank and due southwest on Highway 14 from Prieto's hometown of Palmdale. After the anti-Muslim video was released it was revealed that the FBI Los Angeles office, where Ivens had worked as a national security and counter-intelligence agent, was investigating the producers of the film. However, the FBI did not indicate when the investigation began and whether Ivens was part of the FBI team looking into the backers of the film.
What could Ivens and Prieto have had in common? Prieto's widow, with whom he was reportedly estranged at the time of his death, although there is no independent verification of that, is Hollywood film executive Ruth Pomerance, someone who would have been privy to the type of Hollywood gossip that would not normally make its way to Washington and to the Secret Service and FBI. Pomerance worked with the movers and shakers of Hollywood as the former head of Michael Ovitz's Artists Management Group, Executive Vice President for Production and Development at USA Films, and Vice-President of Lee Rich Company in New York. Could she have discovered something about the plan to create an incident that would destroy Obama's chances for re-election and imparted that information to her husband, who was sworn to take even a bullet for the president? Did Prieto share the information on the incendiary film with Ivens, a criminal conspiracy so wide that it caused the FBI agent to suffer from anxiety attacks?
Bacile, who also sued the aliases Nicola Bacily and Erwin Salameh, claimed to be an Israeli-American and received funding for the project from 100 Jewish donors. After Bacile was identified as Egyptian Coptic, AIPAC and the Anti-Defamation League immediately denounced the reports on Bacile's Jewish connections with the hackneyed "anti-Semitic" refrain. However, it cannot be denied that the "Innocence of Muslims" project involved Jews long associated with Hollywood. And there is a possibility that Ivens and Prieto were both aware of the plot to release the anti-Islam trailer by circles that had been associated with the Republican and military officers' plot against Obama.
Benghazi: the aborted attempt to create a Jimmy Carter Strategy hostage situation
The attempt to create what Romney called a "Jimmy Carter Strategy" at the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi was immediately seized upon by Fox News, the Romney campaign, and neocon talking heads as a demonstration of Obama's leadership when faced with a crisis. Romney's attempt during the second debate with Obama to claim that the president never used the term terrorism to describe the attack on the consulate that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management officer Sean Smith, and ex-US Navy SEAL team and likely CIA non-official cover security contractor agents Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. The two ex-SEALs were said to work for a little-known security firm called the Blue Mountain Group. Why was Stevens being protected by contractors in a dangerous war zone? Was it because certain elements within the CIA who were loyal to Petraeus could not be trusted to ensure Stevens's safety? Was Stevens a sacrificial lamb all along in order to embarrass Obama?
The Benghazi compound underwent a five-hour siege that began around 9:42 pm, certainly long enough for the U.S. Navy, AFRICOM, and CIA to react in time to save the staff. The siege was after nightfall and long after normal protesters would have been gathered outside the compound for optimum television coverage. A flash precedence message called a CRITIC was sent from the compound, likely from Sean Smith, the communications specialist, that alerted the chain of command in Washington that what was being experienced was no mere protest engendered by the anti-Muslim video. Benghazi, unlike the scene at the U.S. embassy in Cairo, was a paramilitary operation by seasoned guerrillas. Stevens, before the siege, met with a Turkish envoy who was also a liaison with the Salafist-supported Libyan rebels. Stevens reportedly was trying to gather up portable shoulder-held missile launchers given by him and the CIA to Libyan rebels for use against Muammar Qaddafi's government. The Libyans were transferring the missile launchers to allies within the ranks of the Turkish-supported Syrian rebels. The Libyan army brigade guarding the U.S. compound was said to have been totally infiltrated by Ansar al-Sharia and Omar Abdul Rahman Brigades guerrillas allied with Al Qaeda.
In early September, Petraeus made a secretive trip to Istanbul, Turkey where he met with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Turkish MIT intelligence chief Hakan Fidan. Unlike Petraeus's earlier trip to Ankara in March, the CIA chose to meet Turkish officials in Istanbul, a major CIA station that has, in the past, been infiltrated by Mossad moles in the CIA.
Defense Secretary Panetta and Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey were not informed of the siege and the danger to Stevens for a full hour after the CRITIC message was sent from Stevens to the State Department, White House, Pentagon, NSA, and CIA. Broadwell, in an October 26 speech at her Denver alma mater revealed that the CIA was using the Benghazi annex to hold Libyan militants prisoner. It was from this same annex that the CIA dispatched a rescue team to assist Stevens but only 28 minutes before Panetta, Dempsey, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and, assuredly, the White House, had been informed of the attack. The CIA vehemently denied that its annex was being used as a black site. However, the CIA has never admitted to any of its black sites around the world.
Clapper, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, who had reportedly tangled with Petraeus in the past, was said to have learned of Petraeus's extramarital affair at 5 pm on Election Day. Clapper, who oversees the CIA, demanded Petraeus resign. However, it is more likely that Clapper, who, like Panetta and Dempsey, are considered loyal to Obama, realized the nature and extent of the Jimmy Carter Strategy and decided it was important to clean house. Even Clapper was likely not aware that Obama would be re-elected at 5 pm on Tuesday.
The relevant question is what the Turkish envoy told Stevens at their meeting prior to the attack. Did the pro-Salafist Turks demand that Stevens release the Libyan militants and did Stevens refuse? Were the militants key to the eventual embassy hostage siege that would be used to destroy Obama's presidency? Did Stevens, like Ivens and Prieto know too much? Has Stevens become a liability that could have exposed part of all of the "Jimmy Carter Strategy" against Obama. These are the questions that congressional investigators should ask witnesses, including Petraeus, Broadwell, and Romney under oath. As for Cantor, the House Ethics Committee should begin an immediate investigation of him and his staff, seizing all emails and files and urging Speaker of the House John Boehner to suspend or fire him as Majority Leader during the ethics investigation. The question is not so much what Cantor knew and when did he know it, but why did he know?
Cantor's staff reporting that the initial report from an FBI "leaker" went to Reichert is dubious. Reichert, a former King's County detective, is a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, not the House Intelligence Committee, which has overall responsibility for the CIA. Reichert was approached by Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA), now Washington governor-elect, about his mental health following a subdural hematoma after a tree branch struck him on the head in 2010. There were suggestions by his political opponents that Reichert's memory may have been impaired. Reichert insists he is fine but Cantor and his staff would find using Reichert as an initial source for the FBI leak about Petraeus advantageous if the FBI pursues the veracity of Cantor's and his staffs' story.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-MI) was briefed on the Petraeus affair by the FBI prior to his Senate counterpart Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) being informed. Feinstein has complained about being left out initially but she, like the individual being touted as a potential replacement for Petraeus at the CIA, former Representative Jane Harman (D-CA) -- who was under investigation for her links to Mossad agents at the Israeli embassy in Washington -- are known to be virtual sieves of U.S. intelligence to Israeli intelligence agents and uncleared individuals heading U.S. Jewish organizations.
General Ham was in a position to order assistance from U.S. naval units off Benghazi's coast but failed to do so from his command post at the Pentagon. British intelligence sources in Benghazi claimed Stevens's compound and the CIA annex were under sustained fire by attackers on two separate occasions, without help arriving from a U.S. Special Forces Commander’s In Extremis Force or CIF deployed from Stuttgart, Ham's permanent AFRICOM headquarters, to Croatia for OPERATION JACKAL STONE, a training exercise. Information on the CIF in Croatia was leaked by Broadwell in her Denver speech but it was also suspiciously reported by Fox News around the same time.
It is clear that whatever Stevens was involved in had to do with the arming or disarming of radical Islamist guerrillas who were active in Libya and Syria and supported by Turkey and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries of Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Concurrent with the Petraeus-Broadwell scandal, Navy Arabic linguist James Hitselberger, assigned to an unconventional warfare element that is part of the Joint Special Operations Task Force-Gulf Cooperation Council in Bahrain, was charged with violating the Espionage Act for placing classified documents in a publicly-accessible archive called the "James F. Hitselberger Collection" at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. Like the University of Denver's Korbel School the Hoover Institution is a nesting ground for neocons. The timing of the October 26 arrest and indictment of Hitselberger, just as the information about Petraeus and Broadwell began to spread among certain circles in Washington, is suspicious. Hitselberger was described as someone who could, with no money or assets, successfully blend into any environment in any country, especially Arab countries like Libya and Syria. Was Hitselberger trafficking in classified documents to aid and abet the conspirators against Obama? Was he privy to Benghazi cables sent to the U.S. embassies in the Salafist-supporting GCC countries?
Romney's role in treason
It is clear why Romney hardly ever lauded the military or veterans during the campaign. Romney's Mormon religion was founded upon treason and insurrection against the U.S. government. The day after the deadly attack on the Benghazi compound, Romney condemned Obama's lack of an immediate response to the attack, even though the lack of a response can now be placed at the doorstep of Petraeus, Ham, and the CIA assets in Benghazi. There were reports out of Libya that U.S. assets were airborne near the compound to repel the insurgents' attack, in what was called "Feet Dry Over Libya" but that there was an order for the forces not to land. Who gave that order? Was it Ham in Washington? Was it Petraeus? Or was it another conspirator in the military or CIA chain-of-command?
It is also suspected that Stevens and his own background may have involved him in covert side assignments for the CIA. Stevens may have been made aware of the use of some CIA and Pentagon assets to plot with Romney against Obama. Stevens, who was said by State Department insiders to have been gay, would have naturally wanted the gay rights-supportive Obama administration to triumph over the retrogressive Republicans and Romney. The killing of Stevens would have eliminated a potential source of information that could have hanged the conspirators and an impediment to proving advanced arms to Syrian rebels from Libyan caches pursuant to the wishes of Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha.
Washington Post fixture Bob Woodward reported that the Romney campaign offered him a "source" with detailed knowledge of the Benghazi attacks during the last week of October. Who may that source have been? A photograph has emerged of Broadwell with Romney campaign strategist Karl Rove on June 11, 2012. They were attending a meeting in Washington, DC of the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). Two things were odd about Broadwell attending the meeting. She was in her Army uniform at what was, ostensibly, a civilian gathering. And NCSL has been at the forefront of drafting legislation on enacting laws that govern the technology used for elections and the maintenance of voter rolls. Karl Rove attending such a gathering is like putting a fox in a henhouse. And what drew Broadwell to a conference partly focused on election integrity? Her background is in counter-terrorism and national security.
Rove has long been rumored to have close links to certain CIA operations, including those in Sweden. Rove has been a political adviser to Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, a conservative who has sidled up to the CIA on issues ranging from the CIA's rendition of Muslims from Swedish soil, CIA use of Swedish airfields for rendition activity, and the attempt by the United States to bring WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to face trial in the United States.
The Broadwell connection to Rove is key. The death list of those with a possible connection to the Petraeus scandal does not end with Ivens, Prieto, Stevens, and the other Benghazi personnel. On November 9, mere hours before the Petraeus resignation was reported, the body of a private security guard for Reinfeldt was discovered at the Prime Minister's waterfront Sagerska Palace in Stockholm. The guard, said to be a "familiar face" around the palace, worked for Svensk BevakningsTjänst, Sweden's third largest security company, which is owned by the large conglomerate Axel Johnson AB. Renfeldt and his family were not home at the time of the death, which was said to have been caused by an "accidental" or "self-inflicted" gun shot. Is there a connection between the suspicious death of the private guard for Rove's friend Reinfeldt and Obama's Secret Service agent and the FBI agent in Los Angeles? Did one or more of them know too much?
Petraeus girl friend with Karl Rove, June 11, 2012.
Obama never allowed himself to be drawn into the trap laid for him over Benghazi by Romney, Rove, disloyal military officers, and some CIA elements. There are indications the conspiracy against Obama was large. The same day that Petraeus resigned, officially over an "extramarital affair," Christopher Kubisek, the incoming CEO of America's largest defense contractor, Lockeed Martin, was fired by the company's board for a "close, personal relationship" with a subordinate.
If such a series of resignations and forced retirements were to occur in other countries, the CIA would call them a government purge. Former CIA officer Robert Baer said in an interview that he knew of past CIA directors who had extramarital affairs but the FBI had never been called in to investigate. WMR has reported on a past extramarital affair involving CIA director Michael Hayden with a subordinate female Air Force Lieutenant Colonel while he was director of NSA. The FBI was never called in to investigate. Baer may have been referring to Hayden, as well as other past CIA directors.
Petraeus may have been faced with two choices: resigning in disgrace over his "affair" or being prosecuted for treason. He and, presumably others, like Ham and Gaouette, took the easy way out and resigned. Their oath upon being commissioned is succinct:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Under Article 90 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, during times of war -- and we are always told we are in a permanent war on terrorism -- a military member who willfully disobeys a superior can be sentenced to death. Petraeus is hoping to be named President of Princeton University rather than face a firing squad.
Petraeus has a chance to clear his name to a degree. Just as Marine Corps General Smedley Butler was approached by treasonous Republicans who wanted to oust President Franklin Roosevelt in a coup in 1934, playing along with the plotters until he could amass enough evidence to rat them out to the Congress, Petraeus is in a position to identify the treasonous plotters of 2012. They obviously include Cantor, Rove, Romney, Ham, and others who are, as yet, unidentified. If Petraeus remains silent, he will forever be known by his other handle given to him by his military subordinates: "General Betray Us."
|. WMR Petraeus indiscretion may be linked to "October Surprise" plot November 9-11, 2012 -- LATE EDITION|
CIA director General David Petraeus, lauded by neo-cons for his marshaling of troops in contrived military campaigns in Iraq, Afghanistan, and, in support of the "global war on terror," throughout the Arab and Muslim world as the chief of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), resigned suddenly on November 9. Petraeus claimed that he was resigning over an extra-marital affair. Petreaus graduated from West Point in 1974 and soon married Holly Knowlton, the daughter of General William Knowlton, the superintendent of West Point while Petraeus was a cadet. Petraeus has been married to his wife for 37 years,
The Washington spin machine is claiming that President Obama first heard about Petraeus's affair and his intent to resign on the evening of November 8. However, a few weeks ago, Petraeus attended a Canadian embassy screening of the movie "Argo," which depicts the CIA's rescue of Americans in Tehran during the U.S. embassy siege. Petraeus was said by several other attendees to be preoccupied with other matters and totally disinterested in the film that received kudos from current and former CIA rank-and-file. There is a belief by many in the intelligence community that Petraeus's affair was already known to the White House weeks ago but that it was decided that his resignation would be tendered after the November 6 election to avoid another scandal on top of the festering Benghazi consulate attack. Moreover, the Petraeus scandal and the siege of the U.S. compound in Benghazi may be linked.
Paula Broadwell, the co-author along with The Washington Post's Vernon Loeb, of Petraeus's biography titled All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, has been under investigation by the FBI for trying to access Petraeus's e-mail, possibly while Petraeus's CIA-issued secure personal digital assistant and/or laptop were left unattended during trysts. The FBI, according to some media reports, has indicated that neither Petraeus nor Broadwell, who also served as an Army officer and is a married West Point graduate with two sons, face criminal charges. WMR has reported in the past that Loeb is a frequent target of National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance as a result of his publication of leaks from intelligence sources.
Broadwell is a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserves. She traveled several times to Afghanistan where she was "embedded" with Petraeus's units. Broadwell has also studied Arabic. She teaches at West Point, serves as a research staffer at Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership and is currently working on her PhD at King’s College in London.
Neo-cons, who had hoped Petraeus would have run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 and challenged President Obama, expressed anger over Obama's acceptance of Petraeus's letter of resignation. Chief among Petraeus's defenders was the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, who has called Petraeus "my dear General Petraeus," also felt Petraeus should have stayed on at the CIA.
However, Petraeus had his enemies and many were from his own ranks. Petraeus's first combat command was not until after he was a general at the age of 50 when he was put in command of the 101st Airborne Division in Iraq in 2003. Prior to that time, Petraeus was called a "pencil sharpening" general, having mainly served on staffs and attending Princeton for his PhD and Georgetown University. In 2004, Petraeus became the first commander of the Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq (MNSTC-I) and was responsible for training Iraqi police, army, and security service personnel. Under his command, thousands of U.S. weapons were lost and many ended up in the hands of Iraqi insurgents. There were also questionable contracts awarded to U.S. and Iraqi businesses, such as Custer Battles and Blackwater, that had close links to top Republicans.
It has been reported that in Iraq, Petraeus was known as "King David," however, the appellation had little to do with his royal persona and more to do with his fealty to the neo-cons and Israel. One of Petraeus's chief backers was the late Democratic Representative Tom Lantos of California, an arch-Zionist supporter of Israel. Petraeus re-wrote Army counter-insurgency doctrine, which became known as the Petraeus Doctrine. Two words sum up the Petraeus Doctrine: surges and drones.
Although it is too early to ascertain why the FBI was investigating Broadwell, there is some informed speculation from intelligence professionals that the Mitt Romney campaign had inside help in arranging for a Jimmy Carter-like "October Surprise" to deny Obama a second term. It was the Iran hostage situation in 1980 and a Reagan-Bush mole inside the National Security Council who tipped off the Republicans about last-minute negotiations between Carter's team and Iran to release the U.S. hostages that cost Carter re-election. The name of the mole was Robert Gates, on loan from the CIA to the White House. Gates was a loyalist of former CIA director Bush.
Petraeus, with his close connections to the GOP and the neo-cons, may have attracted the wrong type of girl friend whose access to classified CIA information may have played a role in the bungled CIA operation that resulted in the deaths of four Americans at a CIA safe house facility in Benghazi, officially identified as the U.S. Consulate. The dead included the U.S. ambassador to Libya Christoper Stevens, an individual who was also connected to the CIA through "official cover" status.
When the FBI was ordered to plug leaks about the Benghazi situation, the bureau discovered some leaks were coming from high-level CIA sources, possibly including Petraeus's unattended laptop and PDA.
|WhatDoesItMean Ham / Gaouette sacked THIS ARTICLE IS DISINFORMATION ... SORCHA FAAL IS A FRAUD|
|Obama Fires Top Admiral As Coup Plot Fears Grows By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers A shocking new report prepared by the Foreign Military Intelligence Main Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, and circulating in the Kremlin today, states that President Obama has fired one of the United States Navy’s most powerful Admirals over growing fears the US Military is planning an overthrow of his government. According to this report, yesterday (27 October) Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette photo 2nd left] from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) photo 3rd left] currently located in the Middle East. CSG-3 is one of five US Navy carrier strike groups currently assigned to the US Pacific Fleet. US Navy carrier strike groups are employed in a variety of roles, which involve gaining and maintaining sea control and projecting power ashore, as well as projecting naval airpower ashore. The aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) is the strike group's current flagship, and as of 2012, other units assigned to Carrier Strike Group Three include Carrier Air Wing Nine; the guided-missile cruisers USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) and USS Antietam (CG-54); and the ships of Destroyer Squadron 21, the guided-missile destroyers USS Wayne E. Meyer (DDG-108), USS Dewey (DDG-105), USS Kidd (DDG-100), and USS Milius (DDG-69). US news reports on Obama’s unprecedented firing of a powerful US Navy Commander during wartime state that Admiral Gaouette’s removal was for “allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment” that arose during the strike group’s deployment to the Middle East. This GRU report, however, states that Admiral Gaouette’s firing by President Obama was due to this strike force commander disobeying orders when he ordered his forces on 11 September to “assist and provide intelligence for” American military forces ordered into action by US Army General Carter Ham, who was then the commander of the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM), against terrorist forces attacking the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. General Ham had been in command of the initial 2011 US-NATO military intervention in Libya who, like Admiral Gaouette, was fired by Obama. And as we can, in part, read from US military insider accounts of this growing internal conflict between the White House and US Military leaders: “The information I heard today was that General Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready. General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.” GRU analysts in this report state that Obama’s “greatest fear” during the 11 September terrorist attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi was that a strong US Military response would hurt his reelection chances as the American peoples appetite for war has all but disappeared, and he would, also, be open to attacks from his far-left base who remain firmly opposed to further US military actions in the Middle East. As we had, also, reported in our 17 September report “China Warns World War III Being Planned To Oust Obama,” White House fears are growing by the day that Obama is being pushed into a “Total War” scenario by the Pentagon in an action not unlike the situation faced by President John F. Kennedy when he faced off with against the powerful US Air Force General Curtis Lemay during the October, 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. Known well to Obama, this report continues, was the 1962 Pentagon proposal to Kennedy named “Operation Northwoods” that called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), or other operatives, to commit acts of terrorism in US cities and elsewhere. These acts of terrorism were to be blamed on Cuba in order to create public support for a war against that nation, which had recently become communist under Fidel Castro. Fearing his being faced with a similar Pentagon threat, GRU analysts say in this report, Obama’s reluctance to allow a US military response to the 11 September attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi was due to his not knowing who was really behind it, or what their ultimate objective really was. Obama’s fears, apparently, were confirmed by the Federal Security Service (FSB), and as we reported on in our 9 October report titled “Monsanto “War” Kills US Ambassador To Libya” which blamed the Benghazi attack on the shadowy Italian eco-terror group Il Silvestre. Following the attack on Benghazi, this FSB report further states, the eco-terror group Il Silvestre brutally assassinated British oil executive Nicholas Mockford, 60, who worked for theUS oil giant ExxonMobil, two weeks ago on a street in Brussels, Belgium. Though the links between either the Pentagon or CIA relating to Il Silvestre have yet to be firmly established, this GRU report concludes, it can not be ruled out that further attacks against Obama’s interests by the US Military are not in the offing. Most cryptic in this GRU report, however, was its noting, that based upon the 1962 American movie titled Advise & Consent, and the 1962 novel Seven Days in May (made into a movie in 1964), the warnings to President Kennedy about any American leader daring to challenge the Pentagon would be met with swift and harsh punishment. Kennedy, however, failed to heed these warnings and suffered the consequences. To what Obama’s fate will be, especially should he continue to be in conflict with the Pentagon, it is not known. What is known, though, is that the American people themselves continue to remain ignorant of the dangers they face as the world around them continues to spin out of control as they continue to rely on lies and half truths spoon fed to them by their vast mainstream propaganda apparatus designed to keep them from knowing any truths at all.

|Afghanistan, Libya -- Rendition|
|WMR A 9/11 anniversary Israeli provocation "Innocence of Muslims," September 12-13, 2012 --|
|There is very little difference between Los Angeles-based Israeli
real estate developer Sam Bacile and the five "dancing Israelis" who
were arrested by New Jersey police in the hours after the 9/11 attack.
The infamous "dancing Israelis" were discovered to have Arab-style
clothing in their Urban Moving System Systems van, searched by New
Jersey police and FBI agents hours after the Israelis were witnessed at
Liberty State Park in Jersey City "high-fiving" each other after they
filmed the first aircraft strike the North Tower of the World Trade
On the 11th anniversary of 9./11, Bacile released on Youtube a 13-minute trailer for a two hour anti-Muslim short movie, titled "Innocence of Muslims," depicting the Prophet Mohammed as insane, a fraud, and as a sex pervert. A donkey is portrayed as the "first Muslim animal." Israel's signature in the production of the movie is clear. Israeli propagandists often use animals to depict those most revered by Muslims and Christians. The recent painting of graffiti stating "Jesus in a monkey" on a Trappist monastery in Jerusalem has not been fully investigated by the Israeli government, which includes in its coalition Orthodox Jewish political parties that are vehemently anti-Christian and Muslim.
In an interview with The Times of Israel, Bacile echoed the anti-Christian nature of Netanyahu's political allies in stating, "The main problem is I am the first one to put on the screen someone who is (portraying) Muhammad. It makes them mad,” Bacile said. “But we have to open the door. After 9/11 everybody should be in front of the judge, even Jesus, even Muhammad.” Bacile further riled up Muslims with his statement: "Islam is a cancer, period."
Anti-American riots broke out in Egypt and Libya and rioters stormed the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the American consulate in Benghazi. U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, who formerly was the U.S. representative to the Libyan National Transition Council that overthrew Muammar Qaddafi, was killed along with four other U.S. diplomatic personnel, by rioters.
An on-line statement posted by the U.S. embassy in Cairo stated the embassy "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Under pressure from Republicans, the Obama White House has disavowed embassy's statement. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized the embassy statement as being "disgraceful" and suggested that it sympathized with those who stormed the U.S. embassy.
Bacile said he received financing for the movie from 100 Jewish donors. It is not known whether the donors included Las Vegas casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson. The gambling magnate has pumped tens of millions of dollars into the campaigns of Republican candidates, including the pro-Israel Newt Gingrich and Romney, Binyamin Netanyahu's friend and one-time colleague at the Boston Consulting Group. The release of the movie clip on YouTube comes amid the refusal of the White House to meet with Netanyahu during his visit to the United States at the end of the month. Netanyahu has attempted to box in the Obama administration by claiming Obama has pressured Israel not to launch a pre-election military attack on Iran.
The movie's production costs were around $5 million. Bacile is unapologetic about the consequences of his movie. Bacile blamed the attacks and deaths of American diplomats on poor U.S. embassy security. Bacile claims he doesn;t know who dubbed his video clip into Arabic. Israel's immense propaganda apparatus is more than capable of translating English into Arabic and vice versa, often incorrectly in order to achieve maximum propaganda value.
The film's production also involves Florida "pastor" Terry Jones, the infamous self-styled Christian evangelist who threatened to burn the Koran in 2010. Jones, the head of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, canceled his plans to burn Islam's holy book after the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, said the act would endanger U.S. military forces in Afghanistan. However, anti-American demonstrations broke out throughout Afghanistan and at the U.S. embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia. However, in 2011, Jones did burn the Koran at his Gainesville "church" after he held a "trial" for the book.
In 2005, the Danish paper Jyllands Posten published a number of cartoons that irreverently depicted the Prophet Mohammed, including one that showed Mohammed wearing a turban and throwing a bomb. Anti-Danish and anti-Western riots broke out around the world and the violence resulted in a number of deaths in Afghanistan, India, and Benghazi, Libya. On January 5, 2010, WMR reported: "The editor who was instrumental in publishing the cartoons is the cultural editor of the Aarhus-based Jyllands-Posten, Flemming Rose, who worked in Washington, DC as a correspondent of the Copenhagen newspaper Berlingske Tidende. He has been a habitué of the neocon citadel in Washington, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Rose has denied being Jewish."
Bacile stated, "Islam is a cancer, period." Israeli propaganda outlets have also tried to suggest that the anti-Islam movie was partly the work of Egyptian Coptic Christians, which is clearly an attempt to stoke the flames of inter-religious warfare in Egypt between the majority Muslim population and the country's 10 percent Coptic minority. Leaders of Egypt's Copts have denied any association with the Israeli propaganda movie, although Bacile's propaganda film involves Morris Sadek, an expatriate Egyptian Copt.
Romney and other Republicans wasted no time in attacking President Obama in what appears to be a replay of the 1979-80 U.S. hostage situation at the American embassy in Tehran. The Iran hostage situation was used by the Reagan-Bush campaign to embarrass President Jimmy Carter and contributed to Carter's defeat in a landslide in the 1980s presidential election. It was later discovered that members of the Reagan campaign, including George H.W. Bush, secretly negotiated with Iran to keep the American hostages until after the November presidential election.
Adelson funds a number of Israeli media outlets that are playing up Obama's perceived "weakness" in dealing with the anti-American riots in Cairo and Benghazi. Chief among the outlets is the pro-Netanyahu paper Israel HaYom, which is distributed free throughout Israel. In its coverage of the anti-U.S. riots in Egypt and Cairo, Adelson's paper tried to link Bacile's movie to anti-Muslim Christians instead of Israel. A September 12 article in the newspaper stated: "A group of women in black veils and robes that left only their eyes exposed chanted 'Worshippers of the Cross, leave the Prophet Muhammad alone.'"
Abraham Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which often pressures YouTube to remove video clips that are considered anti-Semitic, has been silent on the "Innocence of Muslims" movie and its Jewish financial backers.
One person who is not silent is Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband was killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. In a September 12 article in the Huffington Post, titled, "Libyan Consulate Attack: Who's to Blame?" Breitweiser asks the question that many are posing: "Who are the alleged 'over 100 Jewish donors' who financed this film? Will they be sending their condolences to the families of the four Americans killed because of their film? Will they in any way be publicly held accountable for their support of this film and its message?" Breitweiser's question is important. Revealing the list of the Jewish donors will go a long way in identifying the culprits behind this most recent Israeli provocation, timed to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary. Breitweiser points to the obvious element of the anti-Muslim provocation: "In effect, in my opinion, somebody 'pushed' this film out there to incite and spread hatred and rage in the Middle East on September 11th, and the identity of the person or organization behind this plot should be exposed and held accountable."

|Debbie Schlussel Jill Khawam Kelley|
|Jill Khawam Kelley was the hand-picked lobbyist for Muslim nations and their agenda at Central Command. Kelley, who is part of the soap opera that the Petraeus scandal spawned, was in charge of hosting parties and social events to push the Islamic agenda of Middle Eastern countries. She was seen by Muslim Mid-East nations, especially Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon, as the “go to” woman to push their agenda on top American generals. She was a lobbyist for their cause and, yet, wasn’t required to register as a lobbyist, like all others who host lavish parties for top American officials, like she did, in an attempt to influence U.S. policy in the Middle East. Complete article below: Kelley, a dhimmi Christian Arab of Lebanese descent, was well known in the Muslim Arab embassies of Washington for doing their bidding and hosting their parties at and near MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, where our nation’s top generals are based. It’s where Central Command–the U.S. Armed Forces’ leadership over wars and military personnel Middle East–is headquartered. When a friend of mine said that he thought the financially troubled Khawam sisters, Kelley and Natalie Khawam, were spies for Lebanon and the Arab world, I originally expressed skepticism. I believed that these twin sisters with obvious twin nose jobs were merely bimbo gold diggers in slutty outfits, who used their Delilah ways to first nab rich husbands, and then nab idiotic top American generals to participate in Lifetime-Channel-worthy bitter child custody disputes. But then I learned that Ms. Kelley, who was until this week under the radar, was quietly involved in pushing the agenda of Muslim Arab nations on our nation’s top generals with whom she’d grown close by design. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Ms. Kelley got her hooks into our two top generals in the Middle East, David Petraeus and John Allen. I’m now convinced that my friend, lawyer Gary Welsh of Advance Indiana, who has excellent instincts, was correct. I’ve long written about the infiltration of Central Command at MacDill Air Base in Tampa by Islamic terrorists. Islamic Jihad founder and convicted Islamic terrorist, Sami Al-Arian, was an instructor on the Middle East to our top generals at MacDill Air Force Base AT THE VERY SAME TIME that he was planning mergers and terrorist attacks in Israel with “the brothers of HAMAS” and while he was bringing Muslim illegal alien Islamic terrorists to the U.S. Al-Arian’s friend and co-conspirator, Ramadan Abdullah Shallah (one of those Al-Arian brought here), who became the Secretary-General of the worldwide Islamic Jihad terrorist group, was also a lecturer at MacDill and also taught our top generals his poisonous views on the Middle East and Israel. FBI and INS agents who investigated Shallah and Al-Arian were alarmed at the influence these two top Islamic terrorists had over CentCom. They were also alarmed to find many books on the inner workings of MacDill in Shallah’s house when they raided it. So when people ask me how I think these women were able to insert themselves into top generals’ lives and topple them (along with, apparently, the men they married), I think back to the fact that our top generals gladly allowed top terrorists to infiltrate Central Command as alleged “professors” on the Middle East. And when generals like Petraeus and Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. openly attack Israel and America’s relationship with Israel, people like Jill Khawam Kelley and Al-Arian and Shallah are the reason why. Khawam Kelley isn’t an innocent socialite. She’s an agent of influence for Arab Muslim nations. The Washington Post reports: A military officer who is a former member of Petraeus’s staff said Kelley was a “self-appointed” go-between for Central Command officers with Lebanese and other Middle Eastern officials. . . . At the parties Jill Kelley hosted at her Tampa mansion, guests were frequently treated to the indulgences of celebrity life: valet parking, string quartets on the lawn, premium cigars and champagne, and caviar-laden buffets. The main recipients of the largess were military brass — including some of the nation’s most senior commanders — based at nearby MacDill Air Force Base. Kelley flaunted her access to these military VIPs. . . . The investigations of Petraeus’s and Allen’s actions, nonetheless, have raised questions about how Kelley, a woman with no formal military role, cultivated such close ties to two of the nation’s most revered generals. One former aide to Allen, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity given the sensitivity of the case, suggested that Kelley had become a de facto social ambassador among high-ranking personnel at MacDill, home to the U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command. The Wall Street Journal reports: Middle Eastern diplomats in Washington also knew Ms. Kelley, who came from a Lebanese immigrant family and who helped arrange social activities when dignitaries from the region visited Tampa, diplomats said. She also sometimes attended parties at Washington embassies. I guarantee you that Jill Khawam Kelley wasn’t hosting visits from dignitaries from Israel. And, other than those from Israel, every single “Middle Eastern diplomat” in Washington is a Muslim, most of them Muslim Arabs. And all of them Muslims with an agenda that is anti-Israel and anti-Western. And definitely not in America’s best interests. They come to Tampa for one reason and one reason only–to ingratiate themselves with the top military brass at CentCom at MacDill. And Jill Khawam Kelley was their social director in that mission. Kelley’s sister, Natalie Khawam, was married to a top Bush administration official, Grayson Wolfe, Director of Broader Middle East Initiatives and Iraqi Reconstruction at the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and frequently accompanied him on trips to the Middle East, including to Pakistan. Before that position, Wolfe was the Bush-installed Manager of the Private Sector Development Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, Iraq. How many of the Khawam’s insider Arab Muslim friends did he give sweetheart contracts to? Before It’s News has more and asks more questions about the consulting and contracting firm that Wolfe now heads. Although they are now embroiled in a bitter custody fight over their son, you have to wonder what influence Khawam had on him and what was done in the Middle East. She recently sued her former employer, a Jewish lawyer, Barry Cohen, but gave up after her lawsuit was shown to be phony. Cohen struck back and found that Khawam engaged in bankruptcy fraud. My friend wasn’t so far-fetched when he insisted the Khawam chicks are modern day Mata Haris for the Muslim Arabs. Just look at what they’ve accomplished for the Muslim Mid-East, all of it under the radar . . . until Paula Broadwell had the stupidity to send her threatening e-mails and Jill Khawam Kelley had the stupidity of complaining about it to shirtless FBI agent Frederic Humphries.

NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL MEMORANDUM-46
MARCH 17, 1978
Presidential Review Memorandum NSCM/46
SUBJECT: Black Africa and the U.S. Black Movement
The President has directed that a comprehensive review be made of current developments in Black Africa from the point of view of their possible impacts on the black movement in the United States. The review should consider:
1. Long-term tendencies of social and political developments and the degree to which they are consistent with or contradict the U.S. interests.
cc: The Secretary of the Treasury
NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL
STUDY RESPONSE TO PRESIDENTIAL SECURITY
Objective of our policy toward Black Africa is to prevent social upheavals which could radically change the political situation throughout the area. The success or failure of our policy in the region depends on the solution international
II. A. U.S. INTERESTS IN BLACK AFRICA
A multiplicity of interests influences the U.S. attitude toward black Africa. The most important of these interests can be summarized as follows:
IV. BLACK AFRICA AND THE U.S. BLACK MOVEMENT
Apart from the above-mentioned factors adverse to U.S. strategic interests, the nationalist liberation movement in black Africa can act as a catalyst with far reaching effects on the American black community by stimulating its organizational consolidation and by inducing radical actions. Such a result would be likely as Zaire went the way of Angola and Mozambique.
In order to prevent such a trend and protect U.S. national security interests, it would appear essential to elaborate and carry out effective countermeasures.
Inside the United States these actions could include protest demonstrations against our policy toward South Africa accompanied by demand for boycotting corporations and banks which maintain links with that country; attempts to establish a permanent black lobby in Congress including activist leftist radical groups and black legislators; the reemergence of Pan-African ideals; resumption of protest marches recalling the days of Martin Luther King; renewal of the extremist idea national idea of establishing an "African Republic" on American soil. Finally, leftist radical elements of the black community could resume extremist actions in the style of the defunct Black Panther Party.
Internationally, damage could be done to the United States by coordinated activity of African states designed to condemn U.S. policy toward South Africa, and initiate discussions on the U.S. racial issue at the United Nations where the African representation constitutes a powerful bloc with about one third of all the votes.
A menace to U.S. economic interests, though not a critical one, could be posed by a boycott by Black African states against American companies which maintain contact with South Africa and Rhodesia. If the idea of economic assistance to black Americans shared by some African regimes could be realized by their placing orders in the United States mainly with companies owned by blacks, they could gain a limited influence on the U.S. black community.
In the above context, we must envisage the possibility, however remote, that black Americans interested in African affairs may refocus their attention on the Arab-Israeli conflict. Taking into account; the African descent of American blacks it is reasonable to anticipate that their sympathies would lie with the Arabs who are closer to them in spirit and in some case related to them by blood. Black involvement in lobbying to support the Arabs may lead to serious dissention between American black and Jews. The likelihood of extremist actions by either side is negligible, but the discord may bring about tension in the internal political climate of the United States.
3. Political options
In the context of long-term strategy, the United States can not afford a radical change in the fundamentals of its African policy, which is designed for maximum protection of national security. In the present case, emphasis is laid on the importance of Black Africa for U.S. political, economic and military interests.
In weighing the range of U.S. interests in Black Africa, basic recommendations arranged without intent to imply priority are:
1. Specific steps should be taken with the help of appropriate government agencies to inhibit coordinated activity of the Black Movement in the United States.
2. Special clandestine operations should be launched by the CIA to generate mistrust and hostility in American and world opinion against joint activity of the two forces, and to cause division among Black African radical national groups and their leaders.
3. U.S. embassies to Black African countries specially interested in southern Africa must be highly circumspect in view of the activity of certain political circles and influential individuals opposing the objectives and methods of U.S. policy toward South Africa. It must be kept in mind that the failure of U.S. strategy in South Africa would adversely affect American standing throughout the world. In addition, this would mean a significant diminution of U.S. influence in Africa and the emergence of new difficulties in our internal situation due to worsening economic prospects.
4. The FBI should mount surveillance operations against Black African representatives and collect sensitive information on those, especially at the U.N., who oppose U.S. policy toward South Africa. The information should include facts on their links with the leaders of the Black movement in the United States, thus making possible at least partial neutralization of the adverse effects of their activity.
V. TRENDS IN THE AMERICAN BLACK MOVEMENT
In connection with our African policy, it is highly important to evaluate correctly the present state of the Black movement in the Untied States and basing ourselves on all available information, to try to devise a course for its future development. Such an approach is strongly suggested by our perception of the fact that American Blacks form a single ethnic group potentially capable of causing extreme instability in our strategy toward South Africa. This may lead to critical differences between the United States and Black Africa in particular. It would also encourage the Soviet Union to step up its interference in the region. Finally, it would pose a serious threat to the delicate structure of race relations within the United States. All the above considerations give rise to concern for the future security of
Since the mid-1960s, when legislation on the human rights was passed and Martin Luther King murdered, federal and local measures to improve black welfare have been taken, as a result of which the U.S. black movement has undergone considerable changes.
The principle changes are as follows:
*Social and economic issues have supplanted political aims as the main preoccupations of the movement. and actions formerly planned on a nationwide scale are now being organized locally.
*Fragmentation and a lack of organizational unity within the movement.
*Sharp social stratification of the Black population and lack of policy options which could reunite them.
*Want of a national leader of standing comparable to Martin Luther King.
B. THE RANGE OF POLICY OPTIONS
The concern for the future security of the United States makes necessary the range of policy options. Arranged without intent imply priority they are:
(a) to enlarge programs, within the framework of the present budget, for the improvement of the social and economic welfare of American Blacks in order to ensure continuing development of present trends in the Black movement;
(b) to elaborate and bring into effect a special program designed to perpetuate division in the Black movement and neutralize the most active groups of leftist radical organizations representing different social strata of the Black community: to encourage division in Black circles;
(c) to preserve the present climate which inhibits the emergence from within the Black leadership of a person capable of exerting nationwide appeal;
(d) to work out and realize preventive operations in order to impede durable ties between U.S Black organizations and radical groups in African states;
(e) to support actions designed to sharpen social stratification in the Black community which would lead to the widening and perpetuation of the gap between successful educated Blacks and the poor, giving rise to growing antagonism between different Black groups and a weakening of the movement as a whole.
(f) to facilitate the greatest possible expansion of Black business by granting government contracts and loans with favorable terms to Black businessmen;
(g) to take every possible means through the AFL-CIO leaders to counteract the increasing influence of Black labor organizations which function in all major unions and in particular, the National Coalition of Black Trade Union and its leadership including the creation of real preference for adverse and hostile reaction among White trade unionists to demands for improvement of social and economic welfare of the Blacks;
(h) to support the nomination at federal and local levels of loyal Black public figures to elective offices, to government agencies and the Court.
This would promote the achievement of a twofold purpose:
