FBI Focusing on 'About Four' Suspects in 2001 Anthrax Attacks.

The FBI has narrowed its focus to "about four" suspects in the 6 1/2-year investigation of the deadly anthrax attacks of 2001, and at least three of those suspects are linked to the Army’s bioweapons research facility at Fort Detrick in Maryland, FOX News has learned.
"Fort Detrick is run by the United States Army. It's the most secure biological warfare research center in the United States," a bioterrorism expert told FOX News.

Hillary Clinton lied. Worse yet, she lied when she didn't have to. And she got caught. In the unlikely event that her Tonya Harding strategy pays off and she becomes the nominee of a devastated Democratic Party, the Republicans will play the above quote and video over and over and over again.

Hillary Clinton needs to either a) withdraw and endorse Barack Obama or b) run a positive campaign aimed at winning against John McCain in November, regardless of who is the Democratic nominee .

Update: apparently Hillary is going with slash-and-burn politics instead.

Experts: Sirhan Sirhan Did Not Kill RFK

Dr. Robert Joling, a forensics investigator who has studied the Robert Kennedy assassination for almost 40 years, determined that the fatal shots must have come from behind the senator.

Sirhan, however, was 4 to 6 feet in front of Kennedy and never got close enough to shoot Kennedy from behind, the investigator said.

The other evidence was the Pruszynski recording. This is the only audio recording of the assassination. Another scientist analyzed it and concluded that at least 13 shots were fired from two different guns.

Obama on Vacation
He doesn't look worried, does he? Which, I suppose, is the idea. He certainly has skinny, pale legs. I know that he's half white, I just didn't know it was the bottom half.

Democratic Party Official: Clinton Pursuing 'The Tonya Harding Option'

What will she have to do to Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, in order to eke out her improbable victory?

She will have to "break his back," the official said. She will have to destroy Obama, make Obama completely unacceptable.

"Her securing the nomination is certainly possible - but it will require exercising the 'Tonya Harding option.'" the official said. "Is that really what we Democrats want?"

Russian Mafia in bed with Wall Street, CEO says

Every day, thousands of Americans look to invest their money in stocks, and many of them go through brokers and traders to simplify the process. Unfortunately, according to CEO Patrick Byrne, a majority of those purchasers will be victims of Wall Street's criminal tactics and will help line the pockets of corrupt brokers and lawyers.
Byrne provides more information on his website.

Wall Street is colluding in massive financial crimes against the United States, enabling hedge funds to loot pension funds in return for a share of the spoils. As a result, however, corporate governance has been shattered, firms destroyed, and our system brought to the brink of systemic failure. The institutions that should be stopping this (i.e., federal regulators and the financial press) have become pawns of those profiting from the crimes, and so have have remained indolent to the point of a cover-up.

I've got a crush on Obama Girl

An American nuclear submarine has crossed the Suez Canal to join the US fleet stationed in the Persian Gulf, Egyptian sources say.

The most senior US general in Iraq has said he has evidence that Iran was behind Sunday's bombardment of Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone.

Gen David Petraeus told the BBC he thought Tehran had trained, equipped and funded insurgents who fired the barrage of mortars and rockets.

Bush administration attacks Iran with catastrophic results (for us) and so the American people turn to a strong leader with military experience. President McCain. It could happen.

A member of the United Trinity Church of Christ has started a blog The Truth About Trinity, to defend their church and Pastor Wright. He or she also links to some of Pastor Wright's sermons on Youtube. He is sometimes rough but also comes across as thoughtful and loving.
The candidate is in trouble. His poll numbers are slipping. This is a job for Obama Girl.

Shocking John McCain Association - While the mainstream media examines in great detail Barack Obama's association with the Rev. Wright, they have almost entirely missed the close association of Senator McCain with this man: a prominent member, some say the leader, of a well-known criminal enterprise sometimes referred to as the Administration, and associated with a larger outfit known by insiders as the Grand Old Party.

The National Security State

I have added a new blog to the old blogroll: Antifascist Calling. Antifascist also cross-posts over at Cannonfire. Tuesday's post reveals Domestic Surveillance & Repression on a Massive Scale .
The National Scold says that Hillary Clinton does not have a lesbian Muslim lover "as far as I know".

So what kind of call girl did the patrons of the Emperor's Club pay thousands of dollars to spend an hour or two with? See "Kristen" here. Apparently not her real name.

Larry Sinclair just won't go away. The Globe is running a second Larry Sinclair story which can be read here. They still don't seem to actually believe him and there is really nothing new here except his claim that "Ob ama wants me dead." Oh, and an anonymous internet poster says that his friend dated Obama at Columbia.

Larry also can be heard in his third appearance on Rense. He is now claiming that he had been in contact with murdered gay choir director Donald Young, of Obama's church. Larry also says that he has retained lawyer Blair Montgomery Sibley, best-known for representing the DC Madam.

Obama Murders Choir Director!

Barack Obama has arrived. He has been accused of the the highest level of political smear--the "mysterious death."

The ENQUIRER'S investigation led us to Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ, where Obama worships.

Last December 23, Obama's friend Donald Young, 47--the church's openly gay choir director and a school teacher--was found dead in his apartment, a victim of multiple gunshot wounds.
"A top Chicago private investigator---with connections to the police homicide division--told The ENQUIRER:

Donald Young was silenced because of something he knew about Barack Obama. Donald was in a position at the controversial church where he heard a lot of things and saw a lot of things concerning Barack, the most well-known member of the church.

"There have also been rumors about Barack's personal life and his sexuality. The murdered man seems to have led a gay life."
The March 17 National Enquirer's front page story is a three page spread titled"Obama's Secrets". It is poorly written and thinly sourced. The story covers at least a half dozen Obama "scandals."

One anonymous source told The Enquirer that Obama has gotten into shouting matches with his wife over his "amazing appeal to women." The Enquirer mentions Larry Sinclair, former Weatherman Bill Ayers ("close friendship with terrorist"), Tony Rezko, and Louis Farrakhan.

Not only that, but Obama is supported by Oprah (!) and "political insiders wonder what Oprah will get in return for her support of Obama." (What do you give the woman who has everything?) In addition, some anonymous posters "even claim Obama is an Iranian agent."

Continued from "The Execution of Robert Kennedy"

Investigators have learned that the man first approached to kill Sirhan was Eugen Wrangell, a Czechoslovakian national. Mr. Wrangell, according to information was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency in Prague in 1967 or 1968. Against his will he was forced to assume the identity of a man named Vladimir Alexander Zato who had died, under mysterious cirucumstances, in an automobile accident in Italy in 1968. It was during this period that Wrangell (Zato) first met CIA agent E. Howard Hunt. Wrangell is now incarcerated in San Quentin prison under the name Vladimir A. Zatko.

During 1973 and 1974 Mr. Zatko and other inmates including Robert Hyde, the noted "jail house lawyer", confirmed this information and joined Mr. Zatko in attempting to expose the death threats against both Mr. Sirhan and Mr. Wood. Finally on April 4, 1974, Zatko took the Protestant Chaplin at San Quentin prisoner at knife point, according to news reports, and demanded to be allowed to talk to special agents of the FBI concerning the Sirhan-Wood affair. Guards overpowered Mr. Zatko before he could make his story known.

Both Mr. Hyde and Mr. Zato have expressed a willingness to offer proof of their allegations to authorities if they are first granted federal protection and removal to a federal facility. Both men swear that Mr. Sirhan's life is in immediate jeopard as of this moment.

Assassination Data

As information does not seem to exist these days unless it is on the internet, I offer the following excerpt from "The Execution of Robert Kennedy", A Campaign for Democratic Freedom Special Report by Donald Freed (1975).

Independent investigators have learned that a $25,000 assassination "contract" has been let on the life of Sirhan B. Sirhan.

The murder contract on the life of Mr. Sirhan and another inmate in San Quentin state prison, Ronald Wood, was first offered to two San Quentin inmates in 1972. According to the two inmates who were offered money to eliminate Mr. Sirhan and Mr. Wood, the man who contacted them was a convicted Watergate conspirator, and ex-CIA.

Investigators and Mr. Younger's office were warned in 1973 of the danger to Mr. Sirhan and Mr. Wood. In 1974 Ronald Wood wrote to Nevada Assemblyman Danny Demers that he had learned new details concerning the death of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Wood wrote Assemblyman Demers in September in September 1974 that he had learned new details concerning the death of Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Wood wrote Assemblyman Demers in September that he had come to know Sirhan while the two were locked up in the same maximum security unit at San Quentin, where Sirhan confided to him. Investigators searched frantically within the prison system for Mr. Wood, but days later Wood was found stabbed to death in the Carson City, Nevada State Prison facility. California prison officials said that Wood, a "valued informant", had been transferred to Nevada for "his own protection."

However, Nevada officials report that they were never instructed to take special precautions to protect Wood.

Both prison systems are insisting that Wood's connection to Sirhan had nothing to do with his death.
More tomorrow.
Disgraceful. Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs sinks to a new low.

Wired magazine reveals that Richard Nixon really did have a Secret Plan to Bring Peace to Vietnam .

On the morning of October 27, 1969, a squadron of 18 B-52s — massive bombers with eight turbo engines and 185-foot wingspans — began racing from the western US toward the eastern border of the Soviet Union. The pilots flew for 18 hours without rest, hurtling toward their targets at more than 500 miles per hour. Each plane was loaded with nuclear weapons hundreds of times more powerful than the ones that had obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The secret Nixon/Kissinger plan, codenamed Giant Lance, was to convince the Soviets that Nixon was a madman who would start a nuclear war if they didn't give in to him on Vietnam. This must have been one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time.

FARC being the revolutionary Columbian insurgent group. There is really no "there" in this story. The insurgents speculate about Obama's Columbian polices. This is another attempt to portray Obama as a terrorist sympathizer.

WorldNetDaily is also pushing this: Laptop links Obama, Chavez, Colombian revolutionaries

A laptop computer captured in the possession of a slain Colombian revolutionary provides tangible evidence Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is aiding the narco-rebels and that they see more help coming next year if Barack Obama becomes president.

An interesting article at Hollywood Today, of all places, about the FBI and the Martin Luther King assassination.

After Martin Luther King’s assassination, Cartha DeLoach led the team that captured James Earl Ray, who confessed to the killing, only to recant his confession later. He was convicted of assassinating King, however, when he accepted a plea deal that spared him from the death penalty. And in 1995, Ray accused DeLoach of being involved in King’s assassination.

“Cartha DeLoach was involved in the MLK murder – prior to the shooting, DeLoach played a major role in the FBI harassment of MLK,” Ray scrawled in a handwritten note from his jail cell in 1995, three years before he died in prison.
This is from Part 3 of a 4-part series on television and the FBI. Quite interesting actually, and shows how powerful Hoover was.

(Thanks to Tree Frog.)
Historian Max Holland reviews Philip Shenon's new book on the 9/11 committee, The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation at Washington Decoded. He likens it to Edward J. Epstein's Inquest: The Warren Commission and the Establishment of Truth, in that Shenon makes criticism of the 9/11 Commision respectable, without indulging in wild conspiracy speculation.

It may do for the 9/11 Report what Edward J. Epstein’s 1966 book, Inquest, did for the Warren Report—or more accurately, what Inquest did to the reputation of the Warren Commission. Epstein made skepticism of the Warren Commission’s probity mainstream and respectable, as his book inexorably drew attention to forensic irregularities that had been swept under the rug rather than frankly explained.
Holland, however, is well-known as a supporter of the Warren Commission's conclusions. He is no more open to conspiracy speculation about the events of September 11.

The parallel with Shenon’s book is not exact; for one, there is not the outstanding question of “whodunit,” notwithstanding all the Oliver Stone-like conspiracy theories about the Bush administration. Still, the revelations contained in The Commission are bound to have a negative effect on the public’s perception of that panel.
I have always felt out of my depth in commenting on 9/11. Researcher Daniel Hopsicker has encovered a wealth of anomalous data surrounding Mohammed Atta's time in Venice, Florida as an earlier generation of researchers did for Lee Harvey Oswald's summer in New Orleans. Nonethess, I am not yet persuaded that 9/11 was an inside job, and I am very skeptical regarding the claims that the twin towers were brought down by controlled demolition, or that the Pentagon was hit by a missile.

I am convinced, however, that we do not yet know the truth about 9/11, and that a new investigation is required. Let us hope that the next President will be a Democrat and that he or she will launch that investigation. Congressional investigations are well and good, and should be encouraged, but if the Kennedy assassination has shown us anything it is that there is no substitute for a full investigation by the Justice Department and the FBI, which the Kennedy assassination never received.

The coming attack on Obama

It appears that very likely the contest in November will be between Obama and McCain. The two issues will be Iraq and the economy, and both issues favor Obama. McCain will point to Obama's lack of experience, a legitimate concern to be sure, but an issue that will likely not resonate with the American people. After all, Obama has more experience than Abraham Lincoln did before becoming President.

Apart from being on the wrong side of the war in Iraq, according to every poll of the American people, McCain has three problems; 1) he is old, 2) he is, well, very old, and 3) he is really, really old. Oh, and his own party doesn't much like him.

Also, Obama has one thing in common with the hero of the Right, Ronald Reagan, he of blessed memory, the American people like him. The Republicans are going to try to change that. The will try to make us fear and mistrust him. It has begun.

Melanie Morgan, who I often listen to on the drive in to work, has a piece in WorldNetDaily. She quotes from Newsweek's Andrew Romano:

Over the past few months, it's become clear that there are some shady people out there bent on spreading the claim – completely, inarguably, demonstrably false – that Obama is a "crypto-Muslim Manchurian candidate."

Melanie comments:

You catch that? Completely. Inarguably. Demonstrably. False.

For a moment I thought he was referring to Newsweek's own reporting, but no, he was flakking for Obama as most reporters have.
Do you follow this? The problem Melanie sees is not that some people on her side are describing Obama as a "crypto-Muslim Manchurian candidate," but that the biased media are saying that this claim is false, which it is. The real problem, according to Melanie is, get this, Barack Obama's patriotism deficit. Read it for yourself.

Crazy Pammy makes Melanie look like a moderate. She relies heavily on material at Freedom's Enemies . Freedom's enemies, by the way, are "Islamic radicals and their supporters on the left." She says that "Obama sides with Islamists and their handmaidens."

The rightwing will make every effort to make Obama look anti-American and anti-Semitic while John McCain stays above the fray. The problem for the right is that anyone who reads Pam Geller or WorldNetDaily is unlikely to vote for Obama in the first place and attempts to smear Obama are likely to backfire.

My prediction: Obama wins. Now, let's make it happen.
