Wikileaks Releases DoD Procedure Manual for Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | OCTOBER 26, 2012

WikiLeaks published early this morning hundreds of documents from the Department of Defense that describe the procedures established by the US government to be used with suspects detained by the American government who were sent to the prison Guantanamo Bay.

The first document to be put out is the manual of military procedures at Camp Delta in Guantanamo Bay which applied to both civilian and military personnel beginning in November 2002. This manual established administrative rules, regulations and code of confinement behavior for officials.

The organization founded by Julian Assange announced through a press release that, over the next month, the website will disseminate files about the detention policy in chronological order with the directions followed by military officials for more than a decade. Today, the founder of Wikileaks is under political asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy and is seeking his extradition to South America in order to avoid persecution from the United States, Sweden and other nations that publicly seek revenge.

The documents released by Wikileaks include standard operating procedures of the detention camps Bucca and Abu Ghraib in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay and the manuals for interrogation and fragmentary orders (Fragos) on changes in detention policies.

These documents “show the anatomy of the monster created to conduct arrests after the attacks on September 11, which created a dark hole in which the law and the rights do not exist and where people can be detained without a trace and be treated at will by DoD and intelligence personnel,” said Assange in a statement.

“It shows the excesses of the early days of the war against an unknown ‘enemy’ and how these policies matured and evolved” resulting, he said, “in a permanent state of exception in which the United States is now a decade later “. That exception includes but is not limited to, the effective elimination of significant portions of the Constitution, through the partial or total suppression of the First, Second and Fourth Amendments, for example, which is now business as usual in North America.

Assange, who is in a complicated situation of asylum in the Embassy of Ecuador in London to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for alleged sexual offenses, notes the historical importance of these documents, as “Guantanamo has become an example for the systematic abuse of human rights, “he added.

The organization issued several policy documents on interrogation of detainees in Iraq for the years 2004, 2005 and 2008, which revealed techniques to instill fear or emotional pressure to detainees. WikiLeaks said that “although physical violence is prohibited, in writing, a consistent policy of terrorizing prisoners, combined with a policy of destroying records, has caused abuse and impunity”.

Also due out is the “Fragmentary Order”, released after the torture scandal at Abu Ghraib (Iraq) that “eliminates the requirement to keep a record of the interrogation sessions” in certain areas of the prison.
Furthermore, while noting that interrogations carried out in the Division and Brigade Internment should be recorded, it also states that the files should “disappear within 30 days.” A policy that has been overturned by the Obama administration.

The administration of President George W. Bush (2001-2009) enabled the military base of Guantanamo (Cuba) to detain suspected terrorists — without trial — after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Pentagon to Lobotomize People with Virus in Vaccines?

Leaked April 13, 2005 video shows how the Pentagon intends to destroy people’s brains by putting a virus in vaccines used by most of the population.

By LUIS R. MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | APRIL 3, 2012

As if disease alone wasn’t a problem, there are powerful people searching for ways to change the way people think and act. A video apparently originated in the Department of Defense (DoD), which is identified with the number 149AZ2 and recorded in room BC282 of the Pentagon shows a speaker relating to a rather small audience the breakthrough in the making of a brain eating virus which will make people permanently passive, by attacking the V-Mat 2 gene.

The V-Mat 2 gene is responsible, according to the speaker, for the emotional side of any human being. It governs over anger, happiness, sadness, faith and other emotions. The discovery and implementation of the virus was presented as a way to lobotomize people deemed as religious fundamentalists, the kind that US authorities would like everyone to believe are hiding under everyone’s bed. By injecting the virus into a person, the individual will lose all emotions, which in a brain scan are shown as activity in the frontal right side of the brain. According to the unidentified researcher, that is the area where the V-Mat 2 gene would show a person’s reaction when he or she is exposed to a situation that causes their emotions to change.

The video dates April 13, 2012, appears to have begun a little after nine in the morning. It cuts immediately into a speaker explaining how the virus will act to eliminate the sense of ‘fundamentalism’ from people in war zones such as Afghanistan. The elimination of the so-called God Gene would be achieved by putting the virus in a vaccine that is widely provided to a population, which would ensure a larger reach. During the interactions between the apparent researcher and the people in the audience, it is also discussed how would this virus be spread faster over larger population areas and those methods include spraying the virus from above; from a plane perhaps.

The researcher also talks about how some people are predisposed to be religious fundamentalists as a consequence of their V-Mat 2 gene manifesting itself more aggressively. This gene then causes them to think about causing terrorist attacks such as blowing buildings or themselves in a public or private setting. When asked about the effect the virus would have on those injected or sprayed over, the speaker said that his research validated the theory that the virus would effectively eliminate terrorist behavior after an individual was vaccinated. “By vaccinating them against this, we’ll eliminate this behavior. The virus would immunize against this V-Mat 2 gene and that would….essentially turn a fanatic into a normal person.” He then added that preliminary tests showed that the best way to deliver the virus would be using it in conjunction with respiratory viral forms, such as the flu. “… we believe that’s a satisfactory way to get the exposure of the largest part of the population.”

In addition to having created and tested the synthetic virus, the speaker said that a petition has been officially submitted to implement the use of the virus against people who, according to him show a tendency to be fundamentalists. He identified the proposal as FunVax, or the vaccine for religions.

See the video below:

Although there has been skepticism about the authenticity of the video posted on YouTube, the truth is that the public does not need a video from the Department of Defense to realize that viruses like the one described on the clip exist for real. In the last few months a conscious campaign launched in many main stream media outlets tell of scientists who promote lobotomizing people who don’t believe in the theory of man-made global warming, for example. These scientists believe that people need to be re-educated and, if need be, given a pharmaceutical to help them change their mind about global warming or any other matter that is promoted by core members of the scientific community. Some scientists have also claimed to have produced a vaccine which would indeed make people calm. Others have said that new vaccines and viruses should be used to cure depression, or stress.

What some scientists are claiming is that people’s feelings of anger, passion, intensity, can be erased from their brains so that they no longer have to suffer any emotional or even physical pain, which many believe stems from emotions. In essence, those scientists would be trying to end with what makes people human. It seems that tools like the ones proposed in the video clip or the ones supposedly created by other scientists are made to assure the controllers that at a certain point in time, the masses will be easily controlled. They’d be manageable people who will simply comply with whatever is it they want us to do.

US Military to be under DARPA Surveillance

If there was any doubt the powers that be do not trust the US military men a women, this spying program must clear all doubts.

RT
December 23, 2011

The Pentagon will soon be prying through the personal correspondence and computer files of US military personnel, thanks to a $9-million program that will put soldiers’ private emails under Uncle Sam’s microscope.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, has awarded the grant to five institutions led by Georgia Tech to help develop a system of spying on solderis’ Internet and computer habits, a multi-million dollar investment that they say will serve as a preemptive measure to make sure “insider threats” can’t materialize in the military.

The Pentagon is calling the project “Proactive Discovery of Insider Threats Using Graph Analysis and Learning,” or “PRODIGAL,” and it will scour the e-mails, text messages and files transfers of solders’ “for unusual activity,” writes Georgia Tech, using “a suit of algorithms” that will be able to weed out any weirdness within the Department of Defense that could become a security threat.

A spokesman for DARPA deferred to answer to the Army Times how, exactly, they plan on conducting the surveillance over the correspondence. Wired.com’s Danger Room writes, however, that every keystroke, log-in and file upload initiated over DoD networks will be under strict scrutiny in hopes of breaking up any more Bradley Mannings from making their way into the military.

Rep. Peter King (Rep-NY) said at a hearing earlier this month that “The Fort Hood attack was not an anomaly.” According to the congressman, the shooting spree carried out by Nidal Hasan in 2009 “was part of al-Qaeda’s two-decade success at infiltrating the US military for terrorism, an effort that is increasing in scope and threat.”

Given the Senate and House’s recent go-ahead with the National Defense Authorization Act, a legislation that will allow for the government to indefinitely detain and torture American citizens over suspected terrorist ties, a little cyber-sleuthing of soldiers seems like nothing at all.

For the tens of thousands of defense workers separated from their loved ones by a multitude of miles and battle fields, however, the move comes as one big burden from Big Brother, and a smack in the face sent to the very men and women who are defending a supposed freedom for everyone else in America. Operation Homefront, a program that offers aid to military familes during times of deployment, offer campaigns in which they provide soldiers with laptops so that they can stay in touch with loved ones. Earlier this month, they unloaded several computers on soldiers at Fort Riley thanks to a partnership with CDW Government LLC.

“We are grateful that through our continued partnership with Operation Homefront, we are able to honor the sacrifice of military families and help alleviate some of the stress they often feel when separated from their deployed family members,” Brigadier General John Howard (Ret.), CDW-G DoD business development manager, said in a statement at the time. “While email can never replace the presence of a parent or spouse at home, these laptops provide a vital connection to home when it is needed the most.”

“Although we can never take the sacrifice out of a deployment, we hope that the laptops will help improve the quality of life for our military personnel and their families,” added Amy Palmer, chief operating officer for Operation Homefront. “Without the means to afford computers, many soldiers and their families must wait to hear from one another, which can affect morale on and off the battlefield. However, with the help of CDW-G, many families of deployed soldiers can now communicate daily, easing concerns of worried loved ones.”

While PRODIGAL doesn’t stand to exactly put the Pentagon between the sender of the email and the recipient, it will cause soldiers to censor their thoughts with often the only people they can relate to.

In the past year, DARPA has announced other plans to pry into military personnel, including the Narrative Networks project to find out who is most susceptible to propaganda, and Power Dreaming, an initiative that will scan brainwave patterns of sleeping soldiers to try to determine what causes what dreams.

U.S. military begins evacuations of families in Japan

Examiner
March 17, 2011

As officials struggle to contain leaking radiation from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan, the US military has begun to evacuate families from the disaster-stricken island. Efforts to cool the reactors have seen little success since last Friday’s earthquake and tsunami and concerns are growing of a nuclear disaster in the offing.

The Department of Defense announced this morning that the State Department was planning voluntary evacuations of military families and the families of government employees from Japan. It further will work to evacuate civilians that live within a 50 mile radius of the Fukushima plant. The power facility sustained significant damage in the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan last Friday.

The Navy has moved quickly to start the process at Naval Air Facility Atsugi and Yokuska Naval Base. Those facilities are approximately 200 miles south of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant.

Following suit, the Air Force announced similar measures at Misawa Air Base and the Army began evacuations at a facility near Tokyo. The Marine Corps has not announced any evacuations at their facilities at this time.

Other military facilities in Japan are expected to announce the evacuations to service members and their families today. Underlying the growing danger of a nuclear catastrophe, the State Department warned of “the deteriorating situation at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.”

Col. Otto Feather, 374th Airlift Wing commander at Yokota Air Base, told his command in a radio address, “I know there are a lot of people trying to figure out how to get out of here, and I’m not surprised that there are people that want to get on the road.”

Feather provided a strong statement saying that the US military remained focused on continuing relief efforts in Japan. “The rest of us are going to be lockstep here with the Japanese, doing everything we can to take care of the recovery from this terrible tsunami and earthquake,” he said.

The Department of Defense did not provide numbers as to how many people could potentially be evacuated. However the US military has a heavy presence in Japan with tens of thousands of family members and civilian employees.

Experts generally agree that the radioactive plume from the reactors will move over the Pacific Ocean. Earlier this week the Navy said some of its aircrew that had flown through the plume had become contaminated.

A larger scale event that might include an explosion is possible and causing concern across the globe. White House spokesman Jay Carney said, “The situation has deteriorated in the days since the tsunami and earthquake. The situation has grown at times worse with potential greater damage and fallout from the reactor.”

Top Secret America: A hidden world, growing beyond control

Washington Post

The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.

 These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine. 

The investigation’s other findings include:

* Some 1,271 government organizations and 1,931 private companies work on programs related to counterterrorism, homeland security and intelligence in about 10,000 locations across the United States.

* An estimated 854,000 people, nearly 1.5 times as many people as live in Washington, D.C., hold top-secret security clearances.

* In Washington and the surrounding area, 33 building complexes for top-secret intelligence work are under construction or have been built since September 2001. Together they occupy the equivalent of almost three Pentagons or 22 U.S. Capitol buildings – about 17 million square feet of space.

* Many security and intelligence agencies do the same work, creating redundancy and waste. For example, 51 federal organizations and military commands, operating in 15 U.S. cities, track the flow of money to and from terrorist networks.

* Analysts who make sense of documents and conversations obtained by foreign and domestic spying share their judgment by publishing 50,000 intelligence reports each year – a volume so large that many are routinely ignored.

These are not academic issues; lack of focus, not lack of resources, was at the heart of the Fort Hood shooting that left 13 dead, as well as the Christmas Day bomb attempt thwarted not by the thousands of analysts employed to find lone terrorists but by an alert airline passenger who saw smoke coming from his seatmate.

They are also issues that greatly concern some of the people in charge of the nation’s security.

“There has been so much growth since 9/11 that getting your arms around that – not just for the DNI [Director of National Intelligence], but for any individual, for the director of the CIA, for the secretary of defense – is a challenge,” Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said in an interview with The Post last week.

In the Department of Defense, where more than two-thirds of the intelligence programs reside, only a handful of senior officials – called Super Users – have the ability to even know about all the department’s activities. But as two of the Super Users indicated in interviews, there is simply no way they can keep up with the nation’s most sensitive work.

“I’m not going to live long enough to be briefed on everything” was how one Super User put it. The other recounted that for his initial briefing, he was escorted into a tiny, dark room, seated at a small table and told he couldn’t take notes. Program after program began flashing on a screen, he said, until he yelled ”Stop!” in frustration.

“I wasn’t remembering any of it,” he said.

Underscoring the seriousness of these issues are the conclusions of retired Army Lt. Gen. John R. Vines, who was asked last year to review the method for tracking the Defense Department’s most sensitive programs. Vines, who once commanded 145,000 troops in Iraq and is familiar with complex problems, was stunned by what he discovered.  Read the complete details…
