during the 2000 presidential election campaign and shortly after the current bush administration took power, those on this list will recall a series of news stories which i sent out to document the agenda of the incoming administration...
i made repeated references to the administration's blatant conflicts of interest and unethical ties to the energy and 'defense' industries (not to mention the illegal drugs trade)...
of primary concern to me was oil...in particular, the caspian sea oil and what bp/amoco were willing to do to get at it...as they have been attempting for at least 20 years...
well, here it is...
and look at who's gonna be running the show...unocal...sound familiar??? it should...
they have been planning this for years (those on this list who keep any of the old emails can prove it to themselves) just needed the 'right' governments in place to pull it off...the 'war' in afghanistan was already planned by july, 2001...you see, that's how it goes...you either play ball with the oil cartel (read american government) or you pay the price...
'a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs' i think was the terminology used by this administration to the taliban in july of 2001...hmmm...talk got tough after the $130million we gave them last may didn't seem to have much effect...
july of last year was a busy month...yea...d.o.d. was secretly preparing for war, bioport was working out anthrax vaccine details, the fbi was being hog-tied, hill & knowlton were preparing all the propaganda that would shortly be required...and osama bin laden was in a u.s. hospital in dubai meeting with the local cia chief and getting his kidneys pumped...but that's old news right???
we've got a pipeline to build!!!
not only that, now the bin laden's civil engineering firm can get richer rebuilding afghanistan, along with their american partners...
the poppies, which were banned by the taliban, can start growing again and get that bush family heroin trade back up where it should be...
carlye (read daddy bush) can feed its coffers on all the new defense spending, both at home and abroad...
the american people have been further conditioned, frightened and silenced...their constitution and rights almost fully destroyed...
sheesh...what a sweet deal...all for just a couple of buildings and a few thousand dead americans and afghanis...
anyway, it should be getting pretty obvious to even those who don't really want to know what's going on...
we are being had...
in the name of democracy, freedom, justice and all the things which are being taken away from us right now...
we are being had...
by a bunch of oil/banker brats who are trying no less than to take over the world...
but to question our so-called leaders is 'unamerican'??? to expose the hypocrisy, lies and corruption of those who represent us is taboo??? to demand an independent investigation of the biggest mass murder in american history is 'unpatriotic'???
no way...i'll tell you what it is...bullshit...the only reason 911 will not be investigated is because of what will be found...
and i for one am not gonna sit back and say good for us...because these things are exactly why so many others around the world either hate our guts or are frightened to death of us...they see what we cannot see...
...that the corruption is pervasive...
and we are at a crossroads...
ps...for those interested here is an in depth look...
Afghanistan plans gas pipeline
The pipeline is Afghanistan's biggest foreign investment project Afghanistan hopes to strike a deal later this month to build a $2bn pipeline through the country to take gas
from energy-rich Turkmenistan to Pakistan and India.
Afghan interim ruler Hamid Karzai is to hold talks with his Pakistani and Turkmenistan counterparts later this month on Afghanistan's biggest foreign investment project, said Mohammad Alim Razim, minister for Mines and Industries told Reuters.
"The work on the project will start after an agreement is expected to be struck at the coming summit," Mr Razim said.
The construction of the 850-kilometre pipeline had been previously discussed between Afghanistan's former Taliban regime, US oil company Unocal and Bridas of Argentina.
The project was abandoned after the US launched missile attacks on Afghanistan in 1999.
US company preferred
Mr Razim said US energy company Unocal was the "lead company" among those that would build the pipeline, which would bring 30bn cubic meters of Turkmen gas to
Unocal - which led a consortium of companies from Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Japan and South Korea - has maintained the project is both economically and technically feasible once Afghan stability was secured.
"Unocal is not involved in any projects (including pipelines) in Afghanistan, nor do we have any plans to become involved, nor are we discussing any such projects," a spokesman told BBC News Online.
The US company formally withdrew from the consortium in 1998.
"The Afghan side assures all sides about the security of the pipeline and will take all responsibilities for it," Mr Razim said.
Afghanistan plans to build a road linking Turkmenistan with Pakistan parallel to the pipeline, to supply nearby villages with gas, and also to pump Afghan gas for export, Mr Razim said.
The government would also earn transit fees from the export of gas and oil and hoped to take over ownership of the pipeline after 30 years, he said.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has been surveying routes for transferring local gas from northern Afghan areas to Kabul, and to iron ore mines at the Haji Gak pass further west.
"ADB will announce its conclusion soon," Mr Razim said.
The pipeline is expected to be built with funds from donor countries for the reconstruction of Afghanistan as well as ADB loans, he said.

i wanted to point something out, just in case anyone's memory isn't quite long enough...
for the last 2 days, abcnbccbsfoxcnnmsnbccnbcnpr, et al, have been playing out a story that the bush
administration, and the president himself, had received 'some' information from the cia in august of last year,
just prior to the events of 9/11, that osama bin laden's group was planning possible airline hijackings in the
the bush administration now admits to these alleged cia briefings but claims that the information was too
vague and nonspecific for anyone to know what was coming.
in addition, the administration claims that communication gaps between the cia and the fbi created a
situation in which all of the pertinent data was not 'filtered' correctly...
interesting that many of us out here in reality seem to be filtering things correctly...am i to assume that my
filters function so much better than the government's $300bn intelligence machine??? i don't think so...then
again, it must be, because 8 months ago we in the internet community had this one nailed...as the following
information will avail...
this story is just more smoke and mirrors...it is a scratch on a giant iceberg and is being released only to
quell the growing number of people who have serious questions about what the hell is really going on. you
can bet this story will try to go away and not lead to any further investigation...it is simply damage control...
we go from no foreknowledge, to some foreknowledge, to who knows what next version...
so before the story fades away, as is so often the case, i'd like to propose one question to condaleezza rice
- our esteemed national security advisor and ari fleischer - mouthpiece of the pres...both of whom stumbled
thru much easier questions all day today...
my question is this...
how do you reconcile the following 2 stories - each of which was reported in any number of this planet's
respectable news media - and your current version of what you all knew and when...
for both stories i will include a couple of links but a simple google search will yield many more sources...
on october 31st, 2001 the french daily, le figaro and radio france international, reported that in early july,
2001, osama bin laden received treatment in the american hospital of dubai for his well publicized kidney
problems. during his 10 day stay at the american hospital, he was met by an operative of the u.s. cia for
an undisclosed purpose.
this story was picked up by all the major wires and was reported thru much of the mainstream press.
so you would think that in the above mentioned cia briefings to the president in august, something about this
would have been mentioned right??? i mean with osama being a big, bad, scary terrorist and all...and 'our'
guy meeting with him only a month earlier???
what gives??? were these two just buds from our last adventure in a'stan when osama was on our team???
was (is) osama still on the cia payroll??? how come this wasn't a concern???
a bbc investigation released on november 6, 2001 presented significant, documented evidence that the fbi
had been instructed to 'back off' investigations of the saudis (and the bin laden family, in particular) during
the clinton administration and increasingly after the new bush administration had taken office...
again, this story was picked up and reported thru much of the global press.
again, what gives???
you guys understand my question, right??? i mean your statements of today don't seem to jive with these
stories, ya know???
so anyway, if you could just check with your handlers and drop me a quick answer at the address below, i,
and any number of other americans, would appreciate it...
once we get this one out of the way, we can get to some of the more important questions...
...and we do have alot of questions...

Hello Kent : Something has been on my mind lately. I've read the
"Flight of the Bumble
Planes" and think the author is close to the truth about what really
happened on 911. It is obvious from the Pentagon's own pictures at their
site that NO plane hit that building. Though maybe a missile did . That's
what I see in the four Pentagon security camera stills. So here's my thought:
anyone remember seeing the brief film that showed the first plane (or shadow
of the plane) hitting the first tower. I've never seen it again. It was,
shown, I think, one to two days after 911. I'm looking through tapes I made
at the time but haven't found it yet. Maybe someone else has it. I wonder
upon further analysis if this plane will look like a 757. I know a witness
said it looked like a smaller business jet. And how about the plane that
we've all seen hit the second tower many, many times. Is it possible to determine
if any pilot is visible or if the plane's markings stand up to intense scrutiny?
How about it video analysers? Anyone have the equipment to do frame by frame
blowups? Maybe the hard evidence has been in plain sight
