John Kerry ignored pre 9/11 warning in May 2001, Logan Airport and nationwide screening issues, FAA special agent Brian Sullivan, Why NY Post article removed?

“With the concept of jihad, do you think it would be difficult for a determined terrorist to get on a plane and destroy himself and all other passengers?” he warned. “Think what the result would be of a coordinated attack which took down several domestic flights on the same day. With our current screening, this is more than possible. It is almost likely.” The toll from such an attack would be economic, as well as human, he predicted with chilling accuracy.”…NY Post March 15, 2004

“His warning now looks like prophecy: At least 82 Kerry constituents were murdered aboard American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175.”…WND March 19, 2004

“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

Robert Mueller is being criticized for his cover up in the 9/11 investigations.

However, in a very much under reported and scrubbed story, John Kerry was warned of likely terrorist success at Logan Airport and airports across the country due to minimal screening of passengers.

From WND March 19, 2004.

“Official: Kerry failed to act on pre-9/11 tip

A third federal aviation-security agent, one still with the government, has stepped forward to say he also warned Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry about security lapses at Boston’s Logan International Airport before the 9-11 hijackings there.

Earlier this week, two former FAA agents said the Democratic presidential hopeful failed to take effective action after they gave him a prophetic warning that his home airport was vulnerable to multiple hijackings.

Brian Sullivan, a retired special agent from the Boston area, advised Kerry in a May 7, 2001, letter (page 1page 2) that Logan was ripe for a “jihad” suicide operation possibly involving “a coordinated attack.” He cited serious breaches at Logan security checkpoints exposed by an undercover investigation he and another former agent helped a Boston TV news station conduct.

Sullivan says he had a copy of the undercover videotape hand-delivered to Kerry’s office.

It turns out the person who delivered it was a senior FAA agent in Washington who’s now with the Transportation Security Administration. The agent, Bogdan Dzakovic, headed covert testing of airport security across the country before TSA took over aviation security from FAA after 9-11.

In an exclusive interview, he says he gave the tape to Jamie Wise, a Kerry staffer at the time.

After the office visit, “I received no feedback from anyone there,” Dzakovic told WorldNetDaily.

Kerry boasts in campaign ads he “sounded the alarm on terrorism years before 9-11.”

But he waited three months to reply to Sullivan’s letter. And his July 24, 2001, letter, a copy of which was obtained by WorldNetDaily, merely offers to pass Sullivan’s warning on to the Transportation Department’s inspector general – even though Sullivan had made it clear in his letter that going to his old agency was a dead end. He and other agents, including Dzakovic, had complained about security lapses for years and got nowhere.”

“Michael Flynn’s Lawyer Explains Why She Needs To View Documents The Government Hasn’t Turned Over

On Tuesday, Judge Emmett Sullivan quizzed federal prosecutors and defense attorney Sidney Powell on the next steps in the Michael Flynn criminal case that has been lingering for more than a year in a D.C. District Court. Judge Sullivan had scheduled the hearing earlier this month in response to Powell’s motion to compel the government to hand over Brady material: material in the government’s possession that is favorable to the accused.

But what should have been a quick hearing to set a briefing schedule turned into a 45-minute preview of Powell’s plan to combat what she characterized as egregious government misconduct.

“There is far more at stake here than sentencing,” Powell began. “As new counsel, we have an ethical obligation to review everything that has happened in the case or not happened, as the case may be, and that is why we filed the motion to compel production of Brady material.”

She then proceeded to detail several examples of the government’s “stunning failures to produce Brady” material, such as the government’s delay in providing the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages to Flynn’s prior counsel and withholding of various internal documents exonerating Flynn of being a Russian agent and violating the Logan Act.

Powell also hit hard the government’s failure to disclose the original Flynn 302 interview summary written by FBI Agent Joseph Pientka. “They say they don’t have it,” Powell noted, adding that “it would certainly be in the FBI’s computer system.” “Things don’t disappear like that,” the defense attorney stressed, seemingly forgetting Hillary Clinton’s missing 30,000 emails. Judge Sullivan appeared less concerned by the disappearance, noting “notwithstanding the best efforts of everyone, things happen and documents are lost. I mean, it just happens.”

Sullivan also pushed Powell to explain the relevance of the various evidence she was seeking. “There never would have been a plea to begin with if the government had met its Brady obligation disclosing what it knew before Mr. Flynn entered a plea and, frankly, before he even made a proffer,” Powell explained.

But it was when Powell said “there’s one thing after the other that we can document that exonerates Mr. Flynn in any number of ways,” that Judge Sullivan interjected: “You’re suggesting that a basis exists to file a motion to withdraw his plea? Is that where this is headed towards?”

“I can’t say right now exactly where it’s headed,” Powell responded, noting she didn’t “think it’s going to be a motion to withdraw the plea.” Rather, Flynn’s new attorney explained she intended “to show that the entire prosecution should be dismissed for egregious government misconduct and long-time suppression of Brady material.””

From Attorney Sidney Powell December 17, 2018.

“New Facts Indicate Mueller Destroyed Evidence, Obstructed Justice

The Supreme Court held long ago in Brady v. Maryland that the Constitution requires the prosecution, which holds all the cards in a criminal case, to give the defense all evidence favorable to the defendant, whether it impeaches a witness, mitigates punishment or shows his innocence. Indeed, the burden is on prosecutors to find anything in the possession of the government that is favorable to the defense.

From the minute Judge Emmet G. Sullivan received the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, which will be decided on Tuesday, he ordered Mueller to provide the defense with all Brady material. Last week, Judge Sullivan specifically ordered Mueller to produce any FBI interview reports — called 302s — or memoranda relevant to the original interview of Gen. Flynn. Ironically, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley has been requesting the agents’ notes and 302s for two years. Did Mueller comply?

Remarkably, but not surprisingly to those who have read my book, Mueller has thumbed his nose at Judge Sullivan’s order. He produced only a 302 created by his own squad seven months later from his own agent’s interview of none other than the infamous, fired-for-bias, disgraced, Trump-loathing, former Agent Peter Strzok — the guy who swore he’d “stop” President Trump and devised “an insurance policy” with his mistress Lisa Page and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in case Trump won the election. We are watching Mueller execute that insurance policy by the day.

The evidence indicates Mueller has destroyed or is suppressing Brady material. There was an original 302 created within five days — by FBI protocol — of the Jan. 24, 2016 ambush interview of General Flynn by two agents — Strzok and Special Agent Joe Pientka. It is mentioned in the Strzok-Page text messages and on page four of the recrafted 302 Mueller filed. Comey read the original 302 before he was fired.”

“Director Mueller, along with his “yes men” supervisors at the agency, not only quashed my clients’ investigation and ignored the disloyalty of the Muslim undercover agent, but then missed the warning signs leading up to September 11 – the biggest intelligence failure in American history, even surpassing Pearl Harbor.
But shamelessly, despite this historic intelligence failure and the World Trade Center terrorist attacks that ensued, Mueller later led an effort to drum both Special Agents Wright and Vincent out of the FBI, in part by attempting to remove their security clearances, as a “reward” for their candor.”…Attorney for Special Agents Robert Wright and John Vincent

From Chicago Magazine June 21, 2007.

“You remember David Schippers. He is the diehard Chicago Democrat hired by the Republicans to prosecute Bill Clinton’s impeachment.

He was the genial, grandfatherly man with the salt-and-pepper beard sitting at the witness table before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, the lawyer barely concealing his contempt for the President, famously peering over his eyeglasses in a dramatic pause and then declaring, “Life was so much simpler before they found that dress, wasn’t it?””

“This is what I’m thinking as his account moves on to how he met a Chicago FBI agent who says that, long before September 11th, his bosses shut down his investigation into terrorists who would later be found to have a link to Osama bin Laden. Perhaps this agent could have foiled the events of September 11th, Schippers says. He also tells me about his own efforts, based on intelligence he was receiving, to warn the federal government about the likelihood of a terrorist attack in Lower Manhattan months before the World Trade Center was destroyed. And he goes on and on and on about a former Oklahoma TV reporter who claims to have documented a link between September 11th and Oklahoma City, namely the role of bin Laden. This is the woman who in the spring of 2001 sent him the letter that got this story rolling.”

“I am not allowed to see the documents inside. Eventually he gives me the tables of contents for all the volumes, a total of 17 pages, with headings such as “Bodansky e-mails discussing Chicago terrorist training camp implicated in Oklahoma City bombing.” But that comes later. Right now, Schippers still has the binder in his hand.

“So I look at this and I think, Holy shit! You know? And I start paging through it and I see the [pre-September 11th] warning from the task force. I see these affidavits. And there’s stuff in there that nobody knows yet because if people found out, people would get dead.”

And now I’m thinking, Is he serious?

And I see that he is.”

“David Schippers is a true believer. Always has been. From his Catholic faith to his (conservative) Democratic politics to his strange cast of clients, Schippers believes. His cases become causes. He practices with the ferocity of a pugnacious defense lawyer and the righteous zeal of a hotshot prosecutor. He reveres law enforcement.”

“On September 11, 2001, Schippers was wrapping up his morning routine at the 125-year-old Northbrook home that he and his wife, Jackie, bought in 1964. He had decided to catch the 8:29 Metra train to the city, and was on his way out the door when Jackie called down to him from their upstairs bedroom.

“Dave, for God’s sake, turn on the TV!”

“And I said, ‘What?’” Schippers recalls.

“Just turn it on!” his wife commanded.

“And there’s the first building smoking. And while I watched, here comes the other [plane]. And I thought to myself, My God, this is no accident. And, of course, I knew. This should not have been a surprise.”

It wasn’t to Schippers. The Oklahoma TV reporter had warned him about a potential attack in New York City-a concern that meshed with the more general warnings he had been hearing from the Chicago FBI agent. Some of what they had to say came from intelligence sources; some came from their reading of the public record and their experience investigating terrorism. Schippers had also been gathering his own information. He spent much of the summer of 2001, he says, calling congressmen, the Justice Department, and friendly news outlets such as the Fox News Channel trying to get the word out, to little avail.

Of course, he wasn’t the only one trying to raise awareness of the terrorist threat. By now, we know all too well some of the dreadful truth about the intelligence failures leading up to the attacks. There were broad but serious warnings, such as that issued by former senators Gary Hart and Warren Rudman, cochairs of the United States Commission on National Security, in their final report on January 31, 2001: “Americans will likely die on American soil, possibly in large numbers.” And there were specifics: Minneapolis FBI agent Coleen Rowley trying in vain to get a search warrant for Zacarias Moussaoui’s laptop computer, and the memo from the FBI’s office in Phoenix suggesting that terrorists were training at U.S. flight schools.”

“Robert G. Wright Jr. is making waves. Wright, 39, joined the FBI in 1990, right out of Indiana University law school. In 1993, he was assigned to the Chicago Division Counter-Terrorism Task Force, which was investigating the Quranic Literacy Institute, a nonprofit research organization in south suburban Bridgeview that translates and publishes sacred Islamic texts. Authorities suspected the institute was funneling money to Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group.”

“Wright says his bosses botched the job. “I just think that if there’s a means to take down a known and suspected terrorist in this country, you do it,” he said on CNN last June. “To constantly and continually ignore the criminal activity that’s taking place in this country by many of these terrorist groups and the financial empires that they had built, is just not right.”

After he was shut down-and transferred to Tinley Park to investigate white-collar crime-a deeply disgruntled Wright decided to write a book, “to legally expose the FBI’s incompetence and dereliction of duty in the terrorism arena,” he would say later. He began turning out a manuscript that would eventually grow to 500 single-spaced pages. In it, he outlined, as he would say later, “the FBI’s intentional, at times, failures to pursue the terrorists and thereby to prevent terrorist attacks.” It does not, at present, have a publisher. He titled it “Fatal Betrayals of the Intelligence Mission.”

And then he went to Schippers for help.”

“Schippers had come full circle. His theory: A Hamas front had trained Iraqis for participation in the Oklahoma City bombing. The path of Wright’s investigation had been converging with Davis’s all along. And bin Laden was behind the entire mess. Worse still, sources were saying the same conspirators were going to strike again.

Schippers shifted gears into warning mode. Repeatedly, he tried to reach Ashcroft, even using a mutual friend as intermediary. That friend happened to be Phyllis Schlafly, the anti-women’s-lib warrior. At one point, Schippers says, Schlafly told him that Ashcroft would be calling him the next day. Instead, he says, an Ashcroft underling called and told him, “You know, we don’t start investigations at the top.”

“I couldn’t get to the Attorney General,” says Schippers. “Obviously I couldn’t get to the President, although I was hoping I could.”

* * *

Even after September 11th, Schippers has had only middling success. On September 12, 2001, Schippers called Wright and said, “‘Bob, you’ve gotta go public on this.’ He said, ‘You know what? When I came in to work this morning, I had a message that ordered me to have nothing whatsoever to do with the investigation of the 9/11 attack.’ I said, ‘My God, Bob, you’re the guy! They need your affidavit to go after bin Laden!’ He said, ‘Well, I’ve been told not to do anything.’”

Last November, Wright filed a 38-page complaint with the inspector general of the Justice Department, an internal watchdog. The complaint charges “dereliction of duty by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, failing to investigate and prosecute terrorism, and obstruction of justice in retaliating against Special Agent Robert Wright Jr.” The inspector general’s office, citing lack of resources to investigate the complaint, has referred Wright to Congress. Wright says he has been barred from that route. The FBI counters merely that Wright may not disclose classified information.”

“Two weeks later, on the day after Ashcroft announced a reorganization of the FBI, Wright appeared at a news conference (carried by C-SPAN) in Washington, D.C., and stated, “Despite the unqualified success of the investigation of the Middle Eastern terrorists, FBI management failed to take seriously the threat of terrorism in the United States. Specifically, FBI management intentionally and repeatedly thwarted and obstructed my attempts to launch a more comprehensive investigation to identify and to neutralize terrorists.””

Under Robert Mueller’s FBI:

“During March 2002, FBIHQ learned the New York Times intended to run a three day, front page story, concerning Agent Wright’s publication.  In exchange for postponing the story, FBIHQ offered the New York Times reporter, Judy Miller, unprecedented access to FBIHQ and to terrorism supervisors to discuss Operation Vulgar Betrayal and Agent Wright. 

     Following the meeting, FBIHQ revoked the 82% approval of FBI Mission, falsely claiming it was so intertwined with classified and grand jury material.  Agent Wright was not only told his manuscript could not be released to the public but, that he could not release any of it, to any member of the U.S. House of Representatives or the U.S. Senate

      The FBI never wanted this true story told by Agent Wright to anyone, particularly the American public. In fact, in order to prevent this story from being told by the New York Times, Agent Wright’s attorneys believe FBI managers provided “false and misleading information to the New York Times regarding Agent Wright and his Vulgar Betrayal investigation.” Misled members of congress and refused to provide a copy of the FBI Mission manuscript to the 9/11 Commission and U.S. Senator Richard Shelby and U.S. Senator Arlen Specter, each of whom requested a copy of the book from the FBI in letters following the 9/11 attacks.

     The FBI was worried about Agent Wright’s detailed knowledge of the FBI’s terrorism failures, and his ability to tell the American public the truth. The truth about what had actually been going on within the FBI’s terrorism program prior to the 9/11 attacks, via FBI Mission. In fact, while in U.S. District Court, Peter Bloomberg, the U.S. Attorney representing the FBI, unsuccessfully argued Agent Wright should not be allowed to publish his FBI Mission manuscript, claiming:”

Robert Mueller exposed Part 2, William Safire blasts Mueller, Why did FBI Director Mueller  stamp ”classified” on Rowley memo?, Answer:  “protecting the bureau’s crats”

“Mueller and Comey both got undeserved reputations as being men of integrity.”…Former FBI Special Agent Coleen Rowley

Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

From the NY Times May 27, 2002 by William Safire.

“Why did F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller desperately stamp ”classified” on last week’s memo to him from the Minneapolis agent and counsel Coleen Rowley?

Answer: Because he is protecting the bureau’s crats who ignored warnings from the field before Sept. 11, and because he is trying to cover his own posterior for misleading the public and failing to inform the president in the eight months since.

In an example of gutsy newsmagazine journalism, Time reports this week on ”The Bombshell Memo: How the FBI Blew the Case.” The entire 6,000-word memo from the field agent who dared to blow the whistle — edited presumably for national security and libel — can be found on the Web site of time.com.

Last summer, the Phoenix field office, on the trail of a couple of radical Islamists, recommended strongly that F.B.I. headquarters examine flight schools around the nation for potential terrorists; the Washington bureaucrats did nothing.

Soon after, Minneapolis agents took action to jail another radical, Zacarias Moussaoui, a French citizen now accused as ”the 20th hijacker,” for overstaying his visa. The agents asked F.B.I. headquarters for permission to examine his laptop computer. Permission was denied, despite reports from French intelligence relayed from our Paris embassy of his involvement with international terrorists. Not until after Sept. 11 did we learn it contained the phone number of Mohamed Atta’s roommate.

Intimidated by the brouhaha about supposed ethnic profiling of Wen Ho Lee, lawyers at John Ashcroft’s Justice Department wanted no part of going after this Arab. F.B.I. Washington bureaucrats were, in agent Rowley’s words, ”consistently, almost deliberately thwarting the Minneapolis F.B.I. agents’ efforts.”

To this day, Mueller — Eric Holder’s gift to Justice, held over by an entranced Ashcroft and determined to protect his benefactor from embarrassment — insists that even an unencumbered investigation would not have stopped 9/11. Not so, says Rowley; her memo told Mueller last week that his protestation was ”an apparent effort to protect the F.B.I. from embarrassment and the relevant F.B.I. officials from scrutiny.”

She asserts that ”discovery of other terrorist pilots prior to September 11th may have limited the attacks and resulting loss of life” and ”your statements demonstrate a rush to judgment to protect the F.B.I. at all costs.”

This is an unprecedented indictment not only of the time-servers at Justice and F.B.I. headquarters last summer, but also of the director who has been insisting that the bureau is blameless ever since. Rowley, a 21-year veteran of the F.B.I. and mother of four (superagent and supermom), suggests that Mueller’s men have been neglecting their duty to report potential violations of relevant directives to the president’s Intelligence Oversight Board (as if that sleepy gang would lift a finger).”

The picture puzzle of the real Robert Mueller is emerging.

His performance in the prosecution of the Russian Narrative, especially when questioned under oath, began exposing his vulnerable underbelly of credibility.

Michael Flynn has a new judge and attorney, Sidney Powell, who is ripping a new one in Mueller.

The 9/11 victims lawsuit against Saudi Arabia is still alive.

From the New York Post Sept. 7, 2019.

“Robert Mueller helped Saudi Arabia cover up its role in 9/11 attacks: suit”

“9/11 victims agree. “He was the master when it came to covering up the kingdom’s role in 9/11,” said survivor Sharon Premoli, who was pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center 18 years ago.”

““He’s a villain, and an arrogant one to boot,” former FBI Agent Mark Wauck said, adding that his former boss has a long history of acting as a “servant of the deep state,” or the permanent DC ruling class.”

From The Institute for Public Accuracy May 18, 2017.

“COLEEN ROWLEY, rowleyclan [at] earthlink.net, @ColeenRowley
Rowley, a former FBI special agent and division counsel whose May 2002 memo to then-FBI Director Robert Mueller exposed some of the FBI’s pre-9/11 failures, was named one of TIME magazine’s “Persons of the Year” in 2002. She just appeared on The Real News report “Special Counsel Investigating Trump Campaign Has Deep Ties to the Deep State,” about Mueller being appointed to investigate the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

While Mueller has been widely described as being of impeccable character by much of official Washington, Rowley said today: “The truth is that Robert Mueller (and James Comey as deputy attorney general — see my New York Times op-ed on day of Comey’s confirmation hearing) presided over a cover-up …”

In her interview, Rowley noted: “The FBI and all the other officials claimed that there were no clues, that they had no warning [about 9/11] etc., and that was not the case. There had been all kinds of memos and intelligence coming in. I actually had a chance to meet Director Mueller personally the night before I testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee … [he was] trying to get us on his side, on the FBI side, so that we wouldn’t say anything terribly embarrassing. …

“When you had the lead-up to the Iraq War … Mueller and, of course, the CIA and all the other directors, saluted smartly and went along with what Bush wanted, which was to gin up the intelligence to make a pretext for the Iraq War.”

“While not the worst of the bunch, neither Comey nor Mueller deserve their Jimmy Stewart ‘G-man’ reputations for absolute integrity but have merely been, along the lines of George ‘Slam Dunk’ Tenet, capable and flexible politicized sycophants to power, that enmeshed them in numerous wrongful abuses of power along with presiding over plain official incompetence. It’s sad that political partisanship is so blinding and that so few people remember the actual sordid history.”

From the FBI Special Agent Coleen Rowley May 21, 2002  memo to FBI Director Robert Mueller:

“I feel at this point that I have to put my concerns in writing concerning the important topic of the FBI’s response to evidence of terrorist activity in the United States prior to September 11th. The issues are fundamentally ones of INTEGRITY and go to the heart of the FBI’s law enforcement mission and mandate. Moreover, at this critical juncture in fashioning future policy to promote the most effective handling of ongoing and future threats to United States citizens’ security, it is of absolute importance that an unbiased, completely accurate picture emerge of the FBI’s current investigative and management strengths and failures.

To get to the point, I have deep concerns that a delicate and subtle shading/skewing of facts by you and others at the highest levels of FBI management has occurred and is occurring. The term “cover up” would be too strong a characterization which is why I am attempting to carefully (and perhaps over laboriously) choose my words here. I base my concerns on my relatively small, peripheral but unique role in the Moussaoui investigation in the Minneapolis Division prior to, during and after September 11th and my analysis of the comments I have heard both inside the FBI (originating, I believe, from you and other high levels of management) as well as your Congressional testimony and public comments.

I feel that certain facts, including the following, have, up to now, been omitted, downplayed, glossed over and/or mis-characterized in an effort to avoid or minimize personal and/or institutional embarrassment on the part of the FBI and/or perhaps even for improper political reasons:”

“You do have some good ideas for change in the FBI but I think you have also not been completely honest about some of the true reasons for the FBI’s pre-September 11th failures. Until we come clean and deal with the root causes, the Department of Justice will continue to experience problems fighting terrorism and fighting crime in general.”

Ebola tragedy revealed by BBC reporter Tulip Mazumdar, Devastating news from the Ebola clinic, This is world’s problem, We must protect our borders and travel and help them to help themselves

“You can see that these doctors, who are highly trained people, got themselves infected,”
“So sending troops into an area, if they’re dealing one-on-one with a patient, they’re not going to be able to protect themselves very well. It’s not easy to [prevent transmission], because you get tired and you get careless and you make some simple mistakes. All it takes is one virus particle.”…Dr. Lee Hieb, former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons

It is too bad we are spending so much time and resources fighting ISIS, a problem that Obama, et al, allowed to exacerbate.

It is too bad these so called religious fanatics, who if they truly had religion would be assisting to help fight Ebola.

It is too bad that Muslims don’t do a better job of policing those who use Islam for an evil agenda.

It is too bad that poor people in Africa must suffer more.

We must protect our country and rally the world to fight Ebola, in an intelligent, compassionate manner.

From the BBC October 7, 2014.

“Devastating news from the Ebola clinic”

“Today we are filming at the country’s main referral hospital – Connaught Hospital in central Freetown. As we enter, I see a woman in a purple and pink shirt lying on a bench, with her head in her hands. She looks extremely unwell. This area is where patients showing symptoms of Ebola come for help, but the help is limited.

This isn’t a treatment centre; it’s an isolation ward within the hospital. People have to travel many miles from here by ambulance to get proper supportive treatment. There are just 18 beds in this hospital, and they are all full.

The latest patient to arrive is a one-month-old baby. Ebola killed both his parents overnight. The chances are he is also infected and will die within days. All medics can do is feed him and hold him through protective suits. I am reminded of my trip to Guinea a couple of months back, when I was covering this outbreak. Back then, I watched the body of a four-month-old baby lowered into the ground. Ebola also killed his mother. It’s heart-breaking to imagine the most likely outcome for this other tiny baby.”
“As we are leaving the hospital, a black truck pulls up. The burial team is here to remove two bodies and bury them in the nearby cemetery. We watch and then follow the makeshift hearse to these victims’ final resting place.

A whole area is cordoned off just for suspected and confirmed Ebola victims. Walking into it is eerie and tragic. There are hundreds of graves, most dug very recently, with fresh mounds of mud on top of them. One or two have a cross or children’s toys scattered on them. Most, though, are unmarked. What hits me is the sheer scale – 400 bodies buried here in a matter of weeks.

The burial team is efficient and almost jovial. I imagine it’s the only way they can keep performing this grim task day in, day out. The cemetery supervisor, Abdul Rahman Parker, tells me he’s been ostracised by his community – people are scared of him now because he handles the bodies of Ebola victims. But he says he doesn’t care, and that Sierra Leone needs him to continue doing this job, even if its people don’t realise it.”
“My brother Francis is sick, and they won’t take him at this centre. They say they are full. What are we supposed to do? We’ve been travelling from hospital to hospital all day and no-one will take him.”

I peer into the car. Francis is sitting in the passenger seat staring into space. His eyes are red, and he has the hiccups – both are clear symptoms of Ebola. After almost an hour of pleading, the family eventually give up. The five of them pile back into their car and drive away. Everyone in that vehicle is now potentially at risk of catching Ebola.

When we enter the treatment centre, I feel the helplessness and frustration of that family and I demand to know why they didn’t allow that potentially dying man inside. Surely they can do something for him. The centre’s co-ordinator, Luca Rolla, tells me their priority has to be their staff and the patients they are already treating. He tells me that they cannot go over capacity or they risk everyone else inside the centre. One of their doctors has already contracted the virus and is now being treated in Germany.

It’s an impossible choice for these medics, and my frustration quickly pales in comparison to theirs. Luca has taken the family’s details and if a bed becomes free anywhere in or around Freetown, he will let them know.

Luca tells me, what’s needed right now is more international medics and training of local medics, and more isolation centres. Until then – he says – he will have to continue turning patients away, knowing full well they risk going back into the community and infecting yet more people.”
“Then soon after 18:00, just as one of the BBC World presenters is about to introduce me live, my producer, Mark, runs over and tells me some terrible news. Francis Samuka, whom we watched being turned away from a treatment centre yesterday, has died. His family has called and told us he passed away at an isolation centre a few hours ago. His sister could barely speak when she was delivering the news, she was wailing with sorrow. My heart sinks… and then I hear the presenter in my earpiece saying: “Tulip, what’s the latest?”

I explain what’s happened, all the time thinking of Francis’ bloodshot eyes and the look of despair I saw in him just the day before.

I am glad we were able to tell Francis Samuka’s story. It’s important people know this is happening on a daily basis across West Africa. It underlines why governments here and global aid agencies continue to plead for more international help, so patients like Francis can be treated, instead of being turned away.”

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also known as Abu Dua, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has suddenly emerged as a figure who is shaping the future of Iraq, Syria and the wider Middle East.

He began to appear from the shadows in the summer of 2010 when he became leader of al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI) after its former leaders were killed in an attack by US and Iraqi troops.”…The Independent June 16, 2014

“al Qaeda’s core leadership has been decimated.”
“That’s why, working with Joe Biden and our national security team, we’ve been able to decimate al Qaeda.”…Barack Obama October 23, 2012

Obama continues his tradition of goofing off and blaming others, throwing them under the bus.

NC senator Kay Hagan continues her tradition of voting with Obama 96 percent of the time.

From GOPUSA September 30, 2014.

“Obama Misses 60% of Security Briefings… and Blames Intelligence Community?”

“First, let’s take a look at Obama’s appearance this past Sunday on “60 Minutes.” As David Limbaugh points out, Obama loves to take personal credit when things go well, but he is quick to blame others when things go poorly.

News outlets are reporting that Obama acknowledged that his administration was surprised by the strength of the Islamic State, sort of. He lays the blame for any such underestimates at the feet of Jim Clapper, his director of intelligence. Isn’t Clapper in the administration? It’s as if Obama is every bit as mystified by Clapper’s alleged oversight as the rest of us and as if he has no culpability for it whatsoever.

But it’s even worse than that. For the truth is that this wasn’t some kind of mistake in intelligence. Our intelligence services were fully aware of the strength and danger the Islamic State posed months and months ago and were aware of its aggressive pursuit of territorial expansion. It’s not that we underestimated the Islamic State; it’s that we overtly ignored it or that Obama was literally out to lunch — or on the golf course.

The pushback from legislators, military officials, and intelligence sources has been swift. Here’s one report from CBS News:

But here’s the kicker. Not only was Obama warned about the growing threat of ISIS and ignored those threats, but he has shown complete recklessness in addressing the seriousness of Islamic terrorism or ANY threat. As reported by the Government Accountability Institute, Obama has skipped nearly 60% of his presidential security briefings in his second term in office!

As reported by Breitbart, “members of the Defense establishment were ‘flabbergasted’ by Obama’s attempt to shift the blame.”

“Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bull*****ing,” a former senior Pentagon official “who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq” told the Daily Beast.

On Monday, others in the intelligence community similarly blasted Obama and said he’s shown longstanding disinterest in receiving live, in-person PDBs that allow the Commander-in-Chief the chance for critical followup, feedback, questions, and the challenging of flawed intelligence assumptions.”

From the Polk County NC Republican Party September 29, 2014.

“Kay Hagan missed her briefings on ISIS”

“Today the Thom Tillis for U.S. Senate campaign began airing a new television ad, “Quiet,” which highlights the failures of Sen. Kay Hagan and President Obama to address growing national security threats across the globe.

On January 27, 2014, President Obama called the Islamic State a “jayvee team” and characterized the terrorist group’s actions as part of “local power struggles.”

Just weeks later, on February 11, 2014, Sen. Kay Hagan skipped a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on current and future threats to the national security of the United States. During the hearing, top intelligence officials warned about the threat of the Islamic State, and confirmed the goal of the terrorist organization was to create an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East.”

“Meanwhile, Sen. Hagan neglected her job on the Armed Services Committee, skipping over half of full hearings in 2014, including the February 11 hearing where intelligence officials warned about the growing strength of ISIS. Over the last two years, Hagan has skipped 27 out of 50 full hearings.”

From Citizen Wells September 16, 2014.

“The rise in power and wealth of ISIS happened on Obama’s watch.

Or whatever you call playing cards and golfing during a crisis is.

From CNS News November 1, 2012.

“President Barack Obama has described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.

This comes despite Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magarief, members of Congress, an administration spokesperson, and several press reports suggesting that al Qaeda played a role in the attack.”

“Fox News reported Monday about an Aug. 15 emergency meeting of personnel at the U.S. Mission in Benghazi over concerns of al Qaeda training camps in the area.

An Aug. 16 cable from Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed on Sept. 11, was sent to the Office of the Secretary of State and briefed on the emergency meeting, saying, “on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia to Takfirist thugs,” Fox News reported the communication as saying.”

“From The Independent June 16, 2014.

“With its multi-pronged assault across central and northern Iraq in the past one and a half weeks, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has taken over from the al-Qa’ida organisation founded by Osama bin Laden as the most powerful and effective extreme jihadi group in the world.

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also known as Abu Dua, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has suddenly emerged as a figure who is shaping the future of Iraq, Syria and the wider Middle East.

He began to appear from the shadows in the summer of 2010 when he became leader of al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI) after its former leaders were killed in an attack by US and Iraqi troops.””
