Chronique
Les Nouvelles Internationales sur l'émission de L'Autre Monde
, édition du 25 mars 2007


Ce dimanche nous nous sommes tourné vers l`Afghanistan qui a été la première étape officielle de la guerre contre le terrorisme, et de la démonisation des musulmans et arabes en général sur la scène médiatique. Après déjà 6 ans d`une guerre d`aggression et d`occupation, on est en mesure d`apprécier les conséquences et surtout les vraies motivations d`être parti en guerre contre ce pays extrêmement pauvre et en ruine. Les pays occidentaux, dont les USA, l`Angleterre et le Canada, y sont responsables d`une catastrophe humanitaire et écologique sans pareil.

L`utilisation criminelle d`uranium appauvri comme arme de combat a déjà pollué le pays avec des résidus radioactifs qui ont une demie-vie de 4.5 milliards d`années, soit l`âge de la terre et du système solaire. La pratique de la torture y est quotidienne dans les prisons de la coalition des "bons sauveurs", et le pays est complètement détruit. La culture du pavot est à des sommets historiques, et le pays en entier sauf Kaboul, est contrôlé par les seigneurs de la guerre et les Talibans, en plus d`avoir à la tête du pays l`ancien consultant de la compagnie pétrolière Unocal, qui cherchait à signer une contrat avec les Talibans pour construire une pipeline à travers le pays, chose que ces derniers refusaient, mais qui a été changé par le nouveau président Karzaï. Nous participons donc à une entreprise criminelle et immorale, ainsi qu`à une occupation militaire tout aussi criminelle.

Et qui doit payer? Nous. 4 000 000 000$ jusqu`à maintenant et nous allons envoyer 1900 soldats québécois à la fin de l`été qui formeront ainsi le noyau principal des 2500 soldats canadiens présents en Afghanistan.

Pourtant, 80 à 90% des canadiens et québécois sont contre notre participation à ce conflit inutile, mais il semble que nos illusions de démocratie tombent à plat devant la réalité: la guerre (et la peur des terroristes) est trop payante pour les intérêts financiers des marchants de la mort comme Bell Helicopter, Bombardier, SNC Lavalin et cie. Et ça nous rapproche des politiques étrangères des USA et de leur élite NEOCON, dont notre cher Harper est si proche.

Uranium Appauvri




Uranium Appauvri


Le sujet de l`uranium appauvri, encore plus que le 9/11, démontre clairement que les médias de masse nous protègent de la vérité au lieu de nous la rapporter. C`est un cas bien documenté par plusieurs sources et par les conséquences déjà présentes. Il s`agit en fait d`un biocide, d`une menace bien plus réelle et dérangeante que le réchauffement du climat, qui vous tient si occupé et préoccupé, gracieuseté de nos fantastiques médias de masse et de nos politichiens.

Ceci est l`arme de destruction massive par excellence: elle continue de tuer des populations entières pendant des milliards d`années. En fait, l`uranium appauvri a une demie-vie de 4.5 milliards d`années, de quoi déranger les prochaines générations de vie sous toutes formes pour un bon moment... ceci étant l`âge de la terre et du système solaire...

Dire que les pays occidentaux comme les États-Unis, l`Angleterre, le Canada, l`Australie et d`autres se permettent de faire la morale aux autres et prétendent amener la liberté et la démocratie... et d`être ni plus ni moins les sauveurs et les bons de ce monde! C`est à faire vomir! Déjà, les afghans, yougoslaves et iraquiens en meurent par milliers. Même chose pour tous les soldats de l`occupation présents dans ces trois pays. Ils meurent de maladies dégénératives, de cancers, et leurs enfants sont ravagés par des difformités à faire lever le coeur.

Nous sommes en panne de valeurs humaines orientées dans le sens de la vie. On souffre d`indifférence et de mollesse d`esprit. Pourtant, ça nous concerne tous. Les poussières radioactives sont transportées par les vents à travers le monde. Quelques semaines seulement après le début de la guerre d`aggression et d`occupation illégale de l`Iraq, les détecteurs en Angleterre enregistraient déjà des hausses significatives de radioactivité dans l`air, en provenance du Moyen-Orient... Pensez-y.

Selon les calculs d`une des top experte mondiale en le sujet, nous aurions relâché dans l`air l`équivalent de 400 000 bombes Nagazaki en terme de radioactivité depuis 15 ans, dû à toutes nos activités impliquant le nucléaire. Vous qui pensiez être à l`abris en mangeant vos légumes biologiques et ne vous souciant pas de vos frères et soeurs au Moyen-Orient qui sont l`objet de notre puissance militaire occidentale et de nos politiciens fous!!

Cessons de tomber pour les faux débats. Il y a des choses hyper importantes à régler si on veut vraiment avoir un "futur"...
Pensez-y...

Depleted Uranium Haunts Kosovo and Iraq


Iraq and Kosovo may be thousands of miles apart, but they share the dubious distinction of contamination with radioactive residue from depleted uranium (DU) bullets used in American air strikes. After several years of silence, US officials finally admitted that 340 tons of DU were fired during the Gulf war. In Kosovo, American delays in providing details of quantities and target points have frustrated international efforts to assess health risks. Despite repeated requests, NATO waited almost a full year after the start of bombing in March 1999 to say that 31,000 DU bullets--a fraction of the number fired in Iraq--were fired by A-10 "tankbuster" aircraft over Kosovo. A Belgrade report published this April estimates that about 50,000 DU bullets had been used in parts of Serbia and Montenegro as well as Kosovo. Evidence is plentiful on the ground that DU was used in heavily populated areas, and that civilians and returning refugees were never warned of the danger.


Low Intensity Nuclear War


Uranium'sEffect On DNA Established

The use of depleted uranium in munitions and weaponry is likely to come under intense scrutiny now that new research that found that uranium can bind to human DNA. The finding will likely have far-reaching implications for returned soldiers, civilians living in what were once war-zones and people who might live near uranium mines or processing facilities.



"The Case Against Depleted Uranium


The Campaign Against Depleted Uranium


DU Death Toll Tops 11,000

By James P. Tucker Jr.


The death toll from the highly toxic weapons component known as depleted
uranium (DU) has reached 11,000 soldiers and the growing scandal may be the reason behind Anthony Principi’s departure as secretary of the Veterans
Affairs Department.

This view was expressed by Arthur Bernklau, executive director of Veterans for Constitutional Law in New York, writing in Preventive Psychiatry E-Newsletter.

“The real reason for Mr. Principi’s departure was really never given,” Bernklau said. “However, a special report published by eminent scientist Leuren Moret naming depleted uranium as the definitive cause of ‘Gulf War Syndrome’ has fed a growing scandal about the continued use of uranium
munitions by the U.S. military.”

The “malady [from DU] that thousands of our military have suffered and died from has finally been identified as the cause of this sickness, eliminating the guessing. . . . The terrible truth is now being revealed,” Bernklau said.

Of the 580,400 soldiers who served in Gulf War I, 11,000 are now dead, he said. By the year 2000, there were 325,000 on permanent medical disability. More than a decade later, more than half (56 percent) who served in Gulf War I have permanent medical problems. The disability rate for veterans of the world wars of the last century was 5 percent, rising to 10 percent in Vietnam.

Depleted Uranium - An American War Crime That Has No End


The use of depleted uranium weaponry by the United States, defying all international treaties, will slowly annihilate all species on earth including the human species, and yet this country continues to do so with full knowledge of its destructive potential.

Since 1991, the United States has staged four wars using depleted uranium weaponry, illegal under all international treaties, conventions and agreements, as well as under US military law.

Depleted Uranium - Far Worse Than 9/11


Depleted Uranium Dust - Public Health Disaster For The People Of Iraq and Afghanistan

By Douglas Westerman

In 1979, depleted uranium (DU) particles escaped from the National Lead Industries factory near Albany, N.Y.,which was manufacturing DU weapons for the U.S military. The particles traveled 26 miles and were discovered in a laboratory filter by Dr. Leonard Dietz, a nuclear physicist. This discovery led to a shut down of the factory in 1980, for releasing morethan 0.85 pounds of DU dust into the atmosphere every month, and involved a cleanup of contaminated properties costing over 100 million dollars.


Uranium Enrichment

Four Iraq War Vets Detained at Pentagon


Four veterans of the current war in Iraq and one supporter (a total of five young men) were detained at the Pentagon today after they attended an open house and left behind flyers providing information about the lethal effects of depleted uranium.


Attack On Iran Will Hit India Most - Scientist

An American geoscientist has warned that India is "downwind" of Iran and is, therefore, predisposed to the harmful, radiation-laded winds that will blow eastwards if the United States were to attack Iran using depleted uranium in dirty bombs or bunker busters like it did in 2003 in Iraq. A bunker buster is said to contain about two tonnes of depleted uranium.

Ms Leuren Moret, a former employee of the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Laboratory in the US, who now works as an independent activist on the use of depleted uranium, warned of the health and environmental effects of the use of depleted uranium by the US in armour-piercing shells, which will have disastrous consequences for generations of Indians to come.

So Bush is scrambling to find his "legacy"?

Here it is, folks: ordering the poisoning large portions of the world's population with depleted uranium, which has not only affected people in Iraq, Yugoslavia, Lebanon, and Afghanistan, but also US troops and their families.

America's Perpetual Nuclear War

On the evening of July 25, 1945, President Truman confided to his diary that the atomic bomb "seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful." Twelve days later it was "useful" in Hiroshima, and again three days later it was "useful" in Nagasaki.

In a radio speech the day Nagasaki was obliterated, Truman told his American audience, "The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians."

The world took note that as many as 140,000 civilians were killed instantly or later died of injuries and radiation poisoning at Hiroshima.

To prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power in the Middle East, President Bush has tasked the Pentagon with developing plans for a surgical strike on Iran’s nuclear facility at Natanz, which is buried under 75 feet of earth and rock.

One option on the table is the B61-11, the smallest tactical nuclear weapon in the U.S. arsenal. The B61 is a variable yield bomb. It can be calibrated to yield as low as 0.3 kilotons or has high as 170 kilotons of atomic power. Its maximum yield is ten times that of the bomb dropped on Hiroshima.

Afghanistan




Afghanistan


Voici les dernières nouvelles à propos de l`Afghanistan. Pour le moins qu`on puisse dire, ça ne va pas bien du tout. Les seigneurs de la guerre et de la drogue contrôlent tout le pays à l`exception de la capitale Kaboul, la terreur reigne, nos soldats sont vus comme des envahisseurs et participants à l`occupation de leur pays, la sécurité et la liberté sont en pire état qu`il y a six ans avant le début de l`aggression, les Talibans reprennent le pouvoir dans le sud, l`uranium appauvri continu de ravager l`ADN de toute forme de vie, la torture est pratique normale et quotidienne dans les prisons des "sauveurs occidentaux", les attaques ont triplé depuis l`année dernière, l`opium cultivé atteint des sommets records (plus de 90% de la production mondiale) et l`ancien consultant de la pétrolière Unocal, Karzaï, qui est à la tête du gouvernement afghan, a nommé 13 commandants des différents groupes reliés aux seigneurs de la guerre et de la drogue à des postes de haut niveau au sein du gouvernement.


Et qui paie pour ça? Les canadiens, qui sont en grande majorité contre notre participation en Afghanistan, ont été forcé de déboursé 4 000 000 000$ jusqu`à maintenant; et dès cet été, c`est les 1900 soldats québécois qui seront déployés qui vont constituer la majeure partie des 2500 soldats canadiens présents là-bas.

Who benefits from the Afghan Opium Trade?


by Michel Chossudovsky

September 21, 2006 GlobalResearch.ca


The United Nations has announced that opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan has soared and is expected to increase by 59% in 2006. The production of opium is estimated to have increased by 49% in relation to 2005.


The Western media in chorus blame the Taliban and the warlords. The Bush administration is said to be committed to curbing the Afghan drug trade: "The US is the main backer of a huge drive to rid Afghanistan of opium... "

Yet in a bitter irony, US military presence has served to restore rather than eradicate the drug trade.


What the reports fail to acknowledge is that the Taliban government was instrumental in implementing a successful drug eradication program, with the support and collaboration of the UN.


Implemented in 2000-2001, the Taliban's drug eradication program led to a 94 percent decline in opium cultivation. In 2001, according to UN figures, opium production had fallen to 185 tons. Immediately following the October 2001 US led invasion, production increased dramatically, regaining its historical levels.


The Vienna based UN Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that the 2006 harvest will be of the order of 6,100 tonnes, 33 times its production levels in 2001 under the Taliban government (3200 % increase in 5 years).

Cultivation in 2006 reached a record 165,000 hectares compared with 104,000 in 2005 and 7,606 in 2001 under the Taliban (See table below).


Multibillion dollar trade


According to the UN, Afghanistan supplies in 2006 some 92 percent of the world's supply of opium, which is used to make heroin.

The UN estimates that for 2006, the contribution of the drug trade to the Afghan economy is of the order of 2.7 billion. What it fails to mention is the fact that more than 95 percent of the revenues generated by this lucrative contraband accrues to business syndicates, organized crime and banking and financial institutions. A very small percentage accrues to farmers and traders in the producing country.


(See also UNODC, The Opium Economy in Afghanistan, http://www.unodc.org/pdf/publications/afg_opium_economy_www.pdf , Vienna, 2003, p. 7-8)


Strikes on U.S., Afghan forces up fourfoldr


U.S. and Afghan officials say the results to date have been very disappointing, predicting 2007 and 2008 would be the most violent years in battling the insurgency since the U.S.-led invasion that toppled the Taliban in early 2002.

"We do have a problem," said Lt. Gen. Karl Eikenberry, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.


Thanks, Lt. General Eikenberry, for your magnificent grasp of the obvious.

And if Musharraf in Pakistan loses the army to very fundamentalist elements in his country, it's all over.


Remember: Pakistan does have nuclear warheads.

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) estimates that Pakistan has built 24-48 HEU-based nuclear warheads, and Carnegie reports that they have produced 585-800 kg of HEU, enough for 30-55 weapons. Pakistan's nuclear warheads are based on an implosion design that uses a solid core of highly enriched uranium around a plutonium trigger, and requires an estimated 15-20 kg of material per warhead. According to Carnegie, Pakistan has also produced a small but unknown quantity of weapons grade plutonium, which is sufficient for an estimated 3-5 nuclear weapons.


US military: Afghan leaders steal half of all aid


And this is why the US is determined to be sending another 10.6 billion tax dollars to these folks with absolutely no oversight as to how is is spent??

Forgive me, folks, but there seems to be more than a little disconnect here.


Bombings triple in Afghanistan in 2006


Someone please tell me again how magnificently things are going in Afghanistan, so many years after the original invasion.

'Smart' rebels outstrip US


In a bleak analysis, senior officers described the fighters they were facing in Iraq and Afghanistan 'as smart, agile and cunning'.

The world's only superpower is in danger of being driven back by a few tens of thousands of lightly armed irregulars, who have developed tactics capable of destroying multimillion-dollar vehicles and aircraft.

The Ballad Of Ho Chang


An animation a classic anti-war story

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article15292.htm


Wulf Zendik wrote Don’t Go, a moving and graphic anti-war tale, in 1969 during the Vietnam War. When it was first released, it was published in newspaper form by both the Los Angeles Free Press and the London International Times. Arol also published Don't Go as a booklet, which was distributed nationally by Doubleday Press. In New York City, radio stations played readings of it over the air on Moratorium Day, with the Doors’ "The End" behind it.

Don’t Go has had a huge impact. Anti-war activists across the U.S. and the world xeroxed and distributed it throughout the underground press, and Wulf received letters from all over—from soldiers in Vietnam, and from those who stayed out of the war—thanking him for understanding what they were up against. Wulf also sent a copy of Don't Go to Erich Maria Remarque, author of All Quiet on the Western Front, thanking him for his tough inspirational book, which turned Wulf against the insanity of war at a very young age. Remarque replied with a warm letter of gratitude, citing the power of Don't Go.

Don’t Go has been translated into 5 languages and has won several international awards. Revel and Kyro have now animated this classic work of art, making its message all the more immediate and powerful.

Cette semaine sur L'Autre Monde: la guerre contre le terrorisme

.
Chronique
Les Nouvelles Internationales sur l'émission de L'Autre Monde
, édition du 18 mars 2007


Ce dimanche nous continuons dans la foulé de la dernière émission sur le 11 septembre 2001, en parlant de la guerre contre le terrorisme et des agressions militaires des USA et de ses alliés, comme l`Angleterre et le Canada, vers le reste de la planète.

Si l`on comprend que les attaques du 9/11 ont été au minimum aidé par des éléments au sein de l`appareil gouvernemental et militaire américain (et que conséqement la vérité sur les origines des attaques fut médiatiquement brouillé), les bases justificatrices de la guerre contre le terrorisme ne tiennent plus.

Et pourtant, des pays entiers se font ravager, des gens meurt par centaines de milliers, des millions d'autres souffrent, et ce, pour rien. En raison de mensonges et de manipulations qui relèvent de haute trahison, de crimes de guerre et de crimes contre l`humanité en vertu des lois internationales, nationales, et des Jugements de Nuremberg reflété par l`ONU, se déploie à l'échelle de la planete une guerre globale et illégitime. Une guerre d`aggression pure et simple qui contribue à la démonisation des arabes qui en souffrent énormément. Pendant ce temps, nos gouvernements nous brandissent l`excuse du terrorisme, portant ainsi atteinte à nos droits et libertés en échange d'une prétendue augmentation de la sécurité. Croyez vous à cette équation?

Attaque terroriste d`Oklahoma City 1995

.
Attaque terroriste d`Oklahoma City 1995


Les dernières nouvelles sur les attaques terroristes d`Oklahoma City en 1995 sont assez troublantes. Terry Nichols, le complice de McVeigh qui a conduit le camion plein d`explosifs qui auraient démoli le Murrah Building, pointe du doigt dans sa déposition officielle vers des agents du FBI et gouvernementaux qui auraient dirigé McVeigh dans la préparation des attaques.
Le fait est que des bombes ont été retrouvées dans le building fédéral qui n`avaient pas explosé, ce qui discrédite la version officielle que seul McVeigh était responsable des dégats ce jour-là.
Qui aurait pu avoir accès à la structure du bâtiment, de l`intérieur? De plus, son camion avait été entreposé sur un terrain de l`armée juste avant les attaques, ce qui est franchement bizarre (on a même des vidéos où McVeigh apparait travailler comme soldat sur une base militaire et il participait à un programme spécial).
Et j`en passe, il faut vraiment suivre cette histoire qui implique dans plusieurs cas les mêmes joueurs qui se sont trouvés être autour du 9/11...
La plupart des témoins et de gens qui enquêtaient sur ce cas ont eu des "accidents mortels" ou sont morts de façon louche. Ça sent encore l`attaque terroriste planifié de l`intérieur, l`inside job en collaboration avec le FBI et des agents du gouvernement.

Les aveux de Khalid Sheikh Mohammed sur le 9/11



Les aveux de Khalid Sheikh Mohammed sur le 9/11


Cette semaine est venu la très surprenante nouvelle des aveux de Khalid Sheikh Mohammed qui aurait admis avoir été le cerveau derrière l`organisation du 9/11 de A à Z. De plus, il a avoué avoir participé et organisé à une trentaine des plus grosses attaques terroristes des dernières décennies, incluant les attaques sur le WTC en `93, le Plaza Bank, les bombes à Bali, et avoir planifié des tentatives d`assassinats sur Clinton, Carter et le Pape.

Cette histoire à se tirer les cheveux ne tient pas debout deux secondes. Premièrement, selon le Asia Times, il aurait été tué il y a quelques années lors d`un raid policier au Pakistan (ce qui expliquerait pourquoi ils nous montrent toujours la même photo de lui...), et d`un autre côté, il a déclaré avoir été le cerveau derrière les attaques contre la Plaza Bank, mais pourtant il serait détenu à Guantanamo depuis quelques années alors que la Plaza Bank fut inauguré seulement qu`en 2006.

Et selon les aveux mêmes de certains agents ayant participé à sa torture à Guantanamo, il a été soumis à de la torture, et suis maintenant son procès à un tribunal militaire à huit clos, ou ni le public, ni la presse n`a droit d`assister, pas même d`avocats indépendants qui peuvent le défendre.
Crédible comme histoire??!!

Si vous y comprenez quoique ce soit, prière de me laisser une note pour m`expliquer ce que c`est que cette histoire de fou. Mais pour le moment, je me dis que ça doit être une des pièce de propagande les plus ridicule que je n`ai jamais vu!


KSM: The Ultimate Patsy "Confesses"


FLASHBACK: A chilling inheritance of terror


Now it has emerged that Kuwaiti national Khalid Shaikh Mohammed did indeed perish in the raid, but his wife and child were taken from the apartment and handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in whose hands they remain.

Like Osama, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed is proving very useful for a dead guy!


Maybe that's why we only ever see the one photo of him, over and over and over and over... - M. R.


Matt Lauer: Can Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's 'tortured' testimony be trusted?


Huge Problem with KSM Confession


In his confession, KSM claims:

"I was responsible for planning, training, surveying, and financing for the New (or Second) Wave of attacks against the following skyscrapers after 9/11: ...Plaza Bank, Washington state"

The Plaza Bank was not founded until 2006 according to their official Web site


Officials: Mohammed exaggerated claims


Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the alleged "Al-Qaeda mastermind," has confessed to direct involvement in a myriad of terrorist attacks and assassination plots around the world, including 9/11 "from A to Z," but some are likely to be disappointed that after 5 years of torture he stopped short of accepting responsibility for killing Kennedy, creating AIDS and being the real Santa Claus.


The Pentagon's press release was subject to editing on behalf of the U.S. Defense Department to remove any sensitive material that Khalid might have unwittingly revealed between his water boarding sessions, but I'm sure we can trust this same gaggle of criminals that lectured us on WMD and "accidentally" misplaced over 2 trillion dollars.


In the document, KSM confesses to almost every nasty thing that's happened in the world over the past twenty years, as well as formulating plots to assassinate Clinton, Carter and the Pope. It's just a shame that the torture masters were not given more time to really put the screws to Khalid, because then we may have found out that he was also responsible for the Challenger disaster and the O.J. Simpson murders.


But since Khalid has squealed on the "A to Z" of 9/11, perhaps he can provide some answers to a few troubling little questions that still have us 9/11 "conspiracy nuts" running around in circles;


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for the FBI ordering the 1993 World Trade Center bombing to go ahead? In his confession, KSM says he ran the attack but fails to explain why it was the FBI who provided the terror cell with the bomb materials through their informant.


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for NORAD completely reversing its standard operating procedure on the day of 9/11?


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for the collapse of three steel buildings, one that was not hit by a plane, from fire damage alone for the first and only time in history?


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for warning, according to Newsweek, a group of top Pentagon officials to cancel their flights on the evening of September 10th due to security concerns?


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for the record number of 'put' options, speculation that the stock of a company will fall, that were placed on American and United Airlines in the days preceding September 11th? This despite a September 10th Reuters report stating 'airline stocks set to fly.'


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for blocking FBI anti-terrorism investigations before 9/11 related to the bin Laden family and Saudi charities that were front groups for Al-Qaeda?


- Was Khalid Shaikh Mohammed responsible for advising the Secret Service not to remove President Bush from a completely unsecured Florida elementary school by letting them know he wasn't a target on 9/11?



Certainly, another senior al-Qaeda figure, Ramzi Binalshibh, widely attributed as being the coordinator of the September 11 attacks on the United States a year earlier, was taken alive and handed over to the US. The latest information is that he is on a US warship somewhere in the Gulf.

Now it has emerged that Kuwaiti national Khalid Shaikh Mohammed did indeed perish in the raid, but his wife and child were taken from the apartment and handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), in whose hands they remain.


On Thursday, NBC's Today Show explored whether the confessions of alleged 9/11 "mastermind" Khalid Sheikh Mohammed can be trusted, since he claimed to have been tortured after being detained.


"Let's talk about the issue of torture," NBC's Matt Lauer said. "He says in his statement that he didn't make this statement under duress or pressure, but he does also say that he was tortured by the CIA after his capture."


Last September, CIA sources told ABC News that the harshest technique they were authorized to use on "high-value detainees, such as the 9/11 attacks architect Khalid Sheikh Mohamed...was called 'water boarding,' in which a prisoner's face was covered with cellophane, and water is poured over it (pictured above) -- meant to trigger an unbearable gag reflex."


Brian Ross and Richard Esposito reported for ABC's The Blotter that "new rules issued by the Pentagon today prohibit water boarding, though there was no clear acknowledgement that it was permitted previously," and that "CIA officers told ABC News that 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed lasted the longest under water boarding, two and a half minutes, before beginning to talk."



In his confession, KSM claims:


"I was responsible for planning, training, surveying, and financing for the New (or Second) Wave of attacks against the following skyscrapers after 9/11: ...Plaza Bank, Washington state"


The Plaza Bank was not founded until 2006 according to their official Web site:


" Founded in early 2006, with a vision of creating the leading commercial bank in the Pacific Northwest, Plaza Bank’s story quickly captured the hearts and passion of some of the region’s leading business minds. From Jack Creighton, former CEO of Weyerhaeuser and United Airlines, to former Seattle Mariner Edgar Martinez, and nationally acclaimed salon operator Gene Juárez, the story of a bank founded to bring “class to the mass” simply could not be contained."


I think we can say for quite certain that whomever is being held as KSM was either caught recently or that his entire confession is a fraud.
