Omar Suleiman: Torturer In Chief

Published by:

By Frank Whalen

Is the man suggested by the U.S. government to be the new leader of Egypt, Vice President Omar Suleiman, personally responsible for the brutal torture and disappearance of countless people, using U.S.-approved “enhanced interrogation techniques”? The evidence is overwhelming that he was trained and cultivated for just such a role.

Suleiman is thought of fondly in U.S. intelligence circles, being the “C.I.A.’s point man in Egypt for renditions—the covert program in which the C.I.A. snatched terror suspects from around the world and returned them to Egypt and elsewhere for interrogation, often under brutal circumstances”, according to a recent piece in The New Yorker. Ron Suskind writes in his book, The One Percent Doctrine, that one rendition victim, whose after torture testimony was used to make the fraudulent connection between Al Qaeda and Iraq prior to the 2003 conflict, would “be handed over to Omar Suleiman, Egypt’s intelligence chief and a friend of [C.I.A. director George] Tenet’s”. The tortured man, Ibn Sheikh al-Libi, eventually recanted his confession saying he gave the false information to Egyptian interrogators because “They were killing me…I had to tell them something”, reads the book Hubris, by Michael Isikoff and David Corn.

As ProPublica reports, “while renditions happen only with the assurance that a foreign partner will not torture the prisoner, as one CIA officer once told Congress, the assurances “weren’t worth a bucket of warm spit.” In the case of Egypt, the assurances were given by Omar Suleiman”.

So where did Suleiman learn to be so effective at torture and information extraction? Could it have been, in part, from the United States?

The Australian newspaper states, “A product of the US-Egyptian relationship, Mr. Suleiman underwent training in the 1980s at the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare School and Centre at Fort Bragg in North Carolina”.

The United States Military has a course known as S.E.R.E., an acronym for “Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape”. One aspect of this program teaches captured military, private contractors and even some civilians how to endure and resist torture and advanced interrogation techniques. Perhaps coincidentally, the U.S. Army’s S.E.R.E training also takes place at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

S.E.R.E. trainers actually were enlisted to pass on their expertise during the War on Terror. As Salon.com reported in 2006, “A March 22, 2005, sworn statement by the former chief of the Interrogation Control Element at Guantánamo said instructors from SERE also taught their methods to interrogators of the prisoners in Cuba.”

There is another connection to North Carolina: the rendition aircraft themselves. After an eyewitness reported a tail number on one craft, information began to unfold, despite being classified. A CBS story refers to the company that registered the craft as “Premiere Executive Transport Services” as well as “Premiere Executive Airlines”, and states that “The planes are based in North Carolina”. Of the rendition programs itself, CBS states: “The indispensable tool for that work is a small fleet of executive jets authorized to land at all U.S. military bases worldwide”. There are eight military bases in North Carolina and Wikipedia lists Fort Bragg as “251 square miles…best known as the home of the US Army Airborne Forces and Special Forces”.

The S.E.R.E. program was instituted toward the end of the Korean War, in which the Soviet Union provided material support to the Communist North, specifically to counter Soviet-style torture techniques. The New York Times wrote about the Soviet interrogation protocols in 2007, saying they utilized, “isolation in a small cell; constant light; sleep deprivation; cold or heat; reduced food rations” as well as “stress positions”. Like the American position recently, the Soviets denied that this treatment constituted torture and, similar to what happened in Egypt with the interrogation of Libi, the Soviets were content to get usable information, whether true or not. The Times states, “When it desired to use such methods against a prisoner or to obtain from him a propaganda statement or “confession,” it simply declared the prisoner a “war-crimes suspect” and informed him that, therefore, he was not subject to international rules governing the treatment of prisoners of war.”

Oddly enough, Suleiman also has Russian expertise to draw from. The Canadian newspaper The Globe And Mail states that Suleiman, “like other promising officers of the time, was then sent to Moscow for additional training”.

So whether his expertise and appetite for torture came from the Evil Empire of the Soviet Union or is due to the U.S.-led War on Terror, Omar Suleiman might be the most learned and practiced masochist since the Gestapo, who called their version of torture, “Verschärfte Vernehmung”.

That, translated, means “enhanced interrogation”.

Technology: The Face Of 21st Century Slavery

Published by:

By Frank Whalen

While the readily available technology of today, and the sci-fi realities of tomorrow, seems to herald a more capable, productive and intelligent human being, the results seem to point to a future where mankind is more machinelike than human.

The Internet’s popularity and growth has represented an opportunity for many to profit.
Various news organizations once attempted a subscription fee or password to access content but search engines allowed a bypass for those who wanted information freely. News groups began to decry bloggers and “citizen journalists” for their biased and unqualified opinions. Once they realized they couldn’t suppress the movement, they began to embrace it. Using pictures and videos from cell phones, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, the once despised citizens could now do the work for them.

Now Rupert Murdoch has initiated another attempt to profit from subscription based content, with the arrival of his much-hyped Ipad news application, The Daily. In his own words, “Our ambitions are very big, but our costs are pretty low”. Therefore, if it can be managed properly, revenue should come easily and in great amounts.

Control and profit has always been the motivator for the elites, and The Daily could be the success story they have been waiting for.

All technology is structured and in order to partake of its wonders, one must surrender to the rules of play. To use email, one must have an account. However, to get an account, personal information is required, rationalized that security protocols will keep the personal information you just gave away, safe.

Convenience plays a role in this. The myriad of passwords one needs can be collectively accessed with a Universal Password, or even biometric scans. You can save the environment by paying your bills online and foregoing bank statements by using the Internet. Google Health was launched to digitize your medical records, making them available to both yourself and your doctor.

However, such accessibility requires security. The Obama Administration recently suggested, an “Internet ID”, under a program called the “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace”. This would create a single profile and leave a digital track for all cyber activity, thereby protecting people from harassment, crime, child exploitation and crafty terrorism recruiting supposedly taking place online. Not highlighted is that such a trail would be a far more comprehensive monitoring system than any fingerprint or social security number, and could very easily be doctored for evidence of criminal behavior.

So the idea of presenting something for entertainment or convenience, structuring it completely by making certain things necessary for security and safety, allows for total control and unimaginable profit.

With each compromise, people seem to relinquish more of themselves to gain a way into the mass entertainment consciousness. In a sort of Pavlovian response, the tech-savvy are taught that they are rewarded for not thinking. The rules and regulations foster learned helplessness; the boundaries of technology are annihilating creative thinking.

Aside from the self-conditioning and rewarded behavior, such instantaneous access to all things at all times changes the brain. Neuroscientist Susan Greenfield wrote recently that, “our brains now under such widespread attack from the modern world, there’s a danger that that cherished sense of self could be diminished or even lost”. And regarding those who have never known a life without the Internet she says, “We could be raising a hedonistic generation who live only in the thrill of the computer-generated moment, and are in distinct danger of detaching themselves from what the rest of us would consider the real world.”
In a recent experiment to alter the brain, MIT researcher Dr. Liane Young discussed the successful findings, saying, “To be able to apply a magnetic field to a specific brain region and change people’s moral judgments is really astonishing”.

The toxic wireless soup of today’s environment also has an impact. Known as “electrosensitivity syndrome”, it affects millions of people worldwide and is thought to cause mood changes, nausea and perhaps even neurological disorders.

Technology is like anything else, it’s how it’s used that matters. When the lines blur between user and machine, when the brain slips away into a cognitive dream state while an artificially intelligent computer directs our lives, that is the day when humanity will see not its decline, but rather its end.

Case in point, Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google, said recently that he wants the search behemoth to become the “third half of your brain”. Controlled, profited from and eagerly desired, this is an insight into the high tech slavery agenda for the 21st century.

America – The Next Japan?

No, America is not going to lead the world in technological innovations or Sake consumption. Rather, it seems that a blueprint is being carried out in Japan to reduce the population and whose success could very easily be implemented in America if the liberal agenda continues to creep forward.

Many factors have been considered, such as a preponderance of pornography and socially acceptable fetishism, and the overcrowding problem that limits growth opportunities. In America, it can even be taken further, allowing for the global warming alarmists who feel it is a crime against mother earth to have children who will grow up to be a drain on the planet.
But there is more to this.

On June 13, 2008, The New York Times reported on the passage of an anti-obesity law in Japan in which both men and women between the ages of 40 and 74 will be required to have their waistlines measured in an attempt to end obesity. Those found to be overweight will be given three months of “dieting guidance” and after six months, they will receive “further re-education. In America, we have a health care reform plan yet to be fully implemented, that could also require annual checkups to accomplish many things, such as controlling weight.
Being overweight is a disease and a drain on health care funds, we hear often. It could also be taken to a different level involving young people. If the children are consistently overweight, could that be construed as child abuse, resulting in children being taken into government custody?

What foods are we eating, both the obese and the slim alike? Foods that contain added hormones to increase production are more available than not. Cows have been given recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, a Monsanto innovation, to boost milk yields since the early 1990’s. Synthetic Estrogen given to both cows and chickens increases the size of the animals and would clearly affect all resulting food and food products. On July 30, 2007 The Kansas City Star reported on “hormone fluctuation” causing males to experience gynecomastia, or enlarged breasts, some of which are undergoing breast reduction surgery. Considering the widespread use of genetically modified crops and other food, it seems likely that such things would affect the human body and genetic structure.

On October 27, 2005 Pravda.ru reported on a study in which rats exclusively fed genetically modified foods showed a severe and pronounced weakness in their offspring resulting in a birth mortality rate of over fifty-five percent. It seriously affected the behavior of the rats themselves, leading the news story to conclude that genetically modified foods are “in fact a delayed action biological weapon”.

Water would appear to be a factor, as well. Associatedcontent.com reports on a 2006 effort by the University of Colorado in which studies were done to discover why fish were spontaneously changing gender. Studies have shown that the estrogen taken in by women who use birth control is not properly filtered from wastewater during treatment and is released with high hormonal levels back into the water supply.

In 2009, CNN reported that young Japanese men are now commonly referred to as “herbivores” as they seem “not interested in flesh”, meaning not interested in a sexual relationship with women, preferring a more platonic situation. This mentality has resulted in lower birth rates and even translated into less economic production as the aggressive business practices of previous generations have been replaced by a much more passive outlook.

In Japan, masculinity in on the wane, being replaced by a more feminized male. America has experienced something similar.

The term metrosexual was coined in 1994 to describe a straight male who displays an almost stereotypically homosexual obsession with looks, grooming and clothing. Men wearing women’s jeans, makeup and even getting their eyebrows waxed have become more common over the last few years.

Whether you attribute all this to hormone overload, a social engineering program sold as being in touch with your more sensitive, feminine side, the liberal concerns with the overcrowding of the planet or the need to force the entire population to conform to health regulations for the greater good, all factors are on display in Japan, resulting in a sort of easily palatable population control. And like other successful products from our friends to the east, you expect that this program has been exported to America.

GERALD CELENTE WANTS YOU!

“Look, the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We guard you while you sleep. Do not… f**k with us.”

This is a quote from the 1999 Academy Award nominated film, “Fight Club”, which features a disenfranchised, typical man who looks to liberate himself from the trappings of everyday American society. He lives to feel and to destroy the perceived source of his slavery, culminating in the explosive destruction of credit card companies’ buildings to eliminate records and erase all debt.

Something people might cheer on these days, for certain. But what if things were being orchestrated in such a way that such action is actually being encouraged?

In a recent interview with Current.com, Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute speaks of the youth of the world uniting by way of the internet, to combat against constant extraction of taxes and the raising of revenue from the people. He talks about a revolution, he foresees cyber crimes and cyber wars ramping up. He promises the heavy hand of government rising to the occasion to quash this, connecting cyber activities to something as mundane as copyright infringement and to something as outrageous as terrorism.

Celente says the youth will start this worldwide revolution, using a Wikileaks style of government-targeted reporting, using cell phone cameras and social networking sites.
He calls cyber warfare an “Internet nuclear bomb” that can be used to “bring down entire financial systems, stop the banking transfers. You can blow apart, without ever having to light a fuse, a whole stock exchange…every major computer connected industry or service is a potential target for cyberwar”.

Is Gerald Celente inciting a cyber-originated resistance or merely a bit slow in catching up on his David Fincher films? The Trends Research Institute website describes their purpose as providing “insights and directions in anticipation of what the future may bring – and to be prepared for the unexpected.” Some forecast…shall we party like it’s 1999 again, Gerald?
As Ecclesiastes 1:9 states, there is nothing new under the sun.

Celente’s forecast is deemed inevitable. Take a look at his website and you will see how credentialed he is, how accurate his track record has been. So we are told this is destined, as would be the governmental response of securing and limiting all internet based communications.

However, Celente also says in the aforementioned interview, “Every time they come up with a new way to stop it, a new way to get around it is going to be born.” Therein lies the appeal…the amazing Celente predicts we shall overcome! Why not join the cyberwar if there will always be ways to effectively fight against government tyranny and excessive taxation?
Being an accurate futurist ceases to be impressive when you know the plan in advance and the powers that be have never been shy in telegraphing their punches.

On February 16, 2010, a cyberwarfare doomsday scenario was examined in an exercise known as “Cyber Shockwave”. It began with a corrupt cell phone application download for the March Madness college basketball series and soon spread to computers, collapsing the entire world wide web and devastating the financial and commerce sectors.

Prior even to this was the introduction of the Cyber Security Act in April of 2009, which according to Cnet News, “would allow the president to declare a cybersecurity emergency relating to non-governmental computer networks and do what’s necessary to respond to the threat.”

Since then, there has been a glut of news stories describing the threat posed by cyber warriors and the methods by which the U.S. government plans to keep all Americans safe. Unfortunately for liberty, all of the proactive and protective measures involve limiting or even eliminating access, accountability and communication among the people.

Gerald Celente would seem to relish his near perfect record and encourage the youth of the world in their governmental tear down. However more participants would equate to a greater perceived threat, thereby fast tracking these control mechanisms to the detriment of Constitutional freedoms.

Another quote from another movie comes to mind. In 1983’s Academy Award nominated film WarGames”, the artificially intelligent computer program Joshua shares what it has learned by saying:
“A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.”
