WASHINGTON (AFP) – The US House of Representatives aimed a sharp jab at Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Tuesday, slapping new energy sanctions on Tehran, and branding its Revolutionary Guard a terrorist group.A measure targeting the elite military corps and the lucrative Iranian energy sector sailed through the House by 397 votes to 16, hours before Ahmadinejad’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly.

The legislation is aimed at depriving Iran of proceeds from energy sales which could be diverted into funding its nuclear program, which the West says is intended to produce atomic weapons, a charge Tehran denies.

Author: Bush nominee helped mask FBI’s pre-9/11 failures and kept al Qaeda’s infiltration of US intelligence from view

This article is quit interesting in that it points to the new DOJ nominee Michael B. Mukasey as the Judge who when presiding over the trial of the blind sheik Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman. Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman was the alleged mastermind of the first WTC attacks in 1993. What makes it interesting is that the Judge was instrumental in keeping the testimony of Ali A. Mohamed who worked for both Al Qaida and the FBI out of the picture. This article asserts that this was to cover up the incompetence of the FBI and the fact that they were unable to prevent the attacks. This of course is not true. The FBI was actively involved in the attacks and it was Ali A. Mohamed who could testify to that effect. It would also out Ali A. Mohamed as a long term agent of the FBI who was involved in numerous False flag Al Qaida attacks on US property. He is known as the man who trained the Arabs involved in the 911 attacks. He became an FBI operative somewere around ’89-’90. This was when George H> W. Bush was president and Cheney secretary of defence. If the Judge was involved in this cover up than they have found another co-conspirator who will never allow for a new 911 investigation and who will act as Bush’s consigliere.

This is the first of two op/ed exposes by Peter Lance, the best-selling author of Triple Cross, which will be released by HarperCollins in a new edition next month.

In the coverage of Michael B. Mukasey, President Bush’s nominee to replace Alberto Gonzales, the line in his resume that has resonated the most with the media is his experience presiding over the 1995 terrorism trial of Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman.

The blind Sheikh, a top al Qaeda confederate who was cited in the infamous Crawford Texas PDB just weeks before 9/11, was convicted with nine others in the so-called “Day of Terror Plot” to blow up New York’s bridges and tunnels, the U.N. and the FBI’s New York office.

Citing the trial in a Sept. 20 New York Times piece that lionized the ex-judge, reporter Adam Liptak described how Mukasey, with “a few terse, stern and prescient remarks,” sentenced the blind sheik to life in prison:

“Judge Mukasey said he feared the plot could have produced devastation on ‘a scale unknown in this country since the Civil War’ that would make the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, which had left six people dead, ‘almost insignificant by comparison.'”

Liptak was correct in citing the 1993 Twin Towers bombing in his story, but he failed to mention that the “Day of Terror” trial was really a desperate attempt by the FBI’s New York office and prosecutors for the Southern District of New York (Mukasey’s old office) to mop up after their failure to stop the blind Sheikh’s “jihad army” prior to its first two attacks on U.S. soil: the murder of Rabbi Meier Kahane in 1990 and the Trade Center bombing on Feb. 26, 1993.

Worse, during the 1995 trial, Judge Mukasey helped bury the significance of Ali A, Mohamed, a shadowy figure who was working at the time for both Osama bin Laden and the FBI.

Security Company Death Squads Timeline

Index Research

Italian Squadristi

There is an uncanny resemblance between the the WW2 Italian Squadristi1, Blackwater and the thousands of other “security” forces.

SECURITY, OED. “The condition of being protected from or not exposed to danger; freedom from doubt; Now, chiefly, well-founded confidence, certainty; freedom from care, anxiety or apprehension.”

There is no such thing as “security”. “Security” companies were formed to make money on our anxieties, just as pharmaceutical companies financially thrive on anxiety about health and have a vested interest in illness.

Dirk Adriaensens has been involved with Iraq for 17 years. He is on the executive committee of the BRussels Tribunal and is the coordinator of SOS Iraq. He writes:

“Security guys and gals don’t have to abide by the Geneva Conventions. They do as they wish. No rules, no regulations. They can operate with impunity.

As such these “security companies” can be called “death squads”. Not “Angels of Death” but “Devils of Death”. For this, they make a lot of money. Privatization of war is big, big business.”

The documentation by The BRussels Tribunal in The Salvador Option Exposed asks “Who is Blowing up Iraq?” There is a full list of articles concerning death squads published on The BRussels Tribunal website.

We have to ask what is the motive for violent occupation, for violence in one’s own country as well as in another’s country. Security Company Death Squads Timeline is a follow – up to Sarah Meyer’s original article, Iraq Security Companies and Training Camps (17.05.06). This first research contained the history with lists of security companies. The present article is resource material which has been collected since May 2006.

Credit turmoil set to benefit big banks

By Saskia Scholtes

Published: September 18 2007 23:54 | Last updated: September 18 2007 23:54

Large banks with big balance sheets and access to central bank liquidity could be poised to benefit from the recent turmoil in financial markets, says ratings agency Moody’s in a report on Wednesday.

As the crisis of confidence in credit has reduced access to cheap capital markets funding for non-bank participants such as hedge funds, the ratings agency argues that banks are set to play an increasingly important role as the much-needed distributors of central bank liquidity.

“Banks play a pivotal role, as they stand between the central bank and the rest of the financial system – the franchised distributors of the central bank’s vital product,” says Christopher Mahoney, vice-chairman at Moody’s.

The comment comes as international policymakers and regulators engage in increasingly heated debate over their response to the recent market turbulence, and whether banks should be granted a freer hand to allocate and distribute capital during times of stress.

A truly disgusting piece of police brutality.

But than you have to remember that Kerry did concede rather quick and he is a member of scull and bones and he is married to a descendant of one of the families who together with Prescott Bush were caught in preparing a coup in America in 1936. Yes, you got it the Heinz family.
