Secret American Prisons In Ethiopia: War Criminal

Dirty Secrets of the War on Terror: War Criminal
The men describe a Kafkaesque nightmare of secret transfer followed by torture at the hands of a foreign government or detention in secret prisons. They are not survivors of Latin America’s “Dirty War,” but of the United States’ shadowy anti-terrorism tactics.
Senior Military, Intelligence, Law Enforcement, and Government Officials Question the 9/11 Commission Report
Many well known and respected senior U.S. military officers, intelligence services and law enforcement veterans, and government officials have expressed significant criticism of the 9/11 Commission Report or have made public statements that contradict the Report. Several even allege government complicity in the terrible acts of 9/11. This website is a collection of their statements. It is not an organization and it should be made clear that none of these individuals are affiliated with this website.
Listed below are statements by more than 90 of these senior officials. Their collective voices give credibility to the claim that the 9/11 Commission Report is tragically flawed. These individuals cannot be simply dismissed as irresponsible believers in some 9/11 conspiracy theory. Their sincere concern, backed by their decades of service to their country, demonstrate that criticism of the Report is not irresponsible, illogical, nor disloyal, per se. In fact, it can be just the opposite.
Former Fed Analyst Questions M1 Currency Component Spike Prior To 9/11
The currency component of M1 (Federal Reserve Notes circulating outside of banks) rose especially rapidly in July and August 2001. In fact, up to and including August 2001, that month (August 2001) was one of the three fastest growing months for the currency component of M1 since 1947, on a seasonally adjusted basis, even on the heels of significantly above-average growth in July 2001. Much of the July-August surge (over $5 billion above-average) seems to have been in the $100 denomination. Among other explanations, persons aware of any imminent terrorist attacks and concerned about possible asset seizures such as those that arose after the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis and the 1998 embassy bombings could have been trying to liquidate their bank accounts in July and August 2001.

None of the Democratic Contenders Has Called for the Closure of the Guantanamo Prison Of Confessions and Torture
While Washington burns, reporters have fun with Karl Rove at the annual Correspondents Association dinner. Rove and Bush have the nerve to joke about breaking the law and the press make fools of themselves in order to stay in their good graces. If we had real journalists, this annual embarrassment would be cancelled for lack of participants. But we don’t have real journalists, so they continue to whore for a living while somewhere revenge is being plotted against every American. When the strike comes most people won’t even know why and David Hicks won’t be able to tell us.
US Empire and the Middle East: Zionism, Puppet Regimes and Political Allies

There are no official figures for civilian deaths.
10,000 Mother of a March
The time for being polite to our war-mongering politicians and organizations which support them is over. The time has been up for years now: over four to be exact.
