Funding those that kill our troops by billybobjoe

Excellent reporting as usual by Joe on his Youtube Channel, The Sludge Report 2, previously The Sludge Report, which was preceded by Billybobjoe, that were both taken off of Youtube because of the subject matter in Joes articles. The elite don't like being exposed to the light of day and are known to break out in a Neo Conservative rash when unable to cover up facts.

His credibility is often questioned, especially by those that don't think for themselves or those with inflated ego's that will not allow for the idea that our over inflated system might not be serving the common folks.

Joe mentioned the source, Aram Roston of The Nation Magazine, and it doesn't take much Googling to verify what he is talking about. Joe, is a US veteran, he did his duty as a member of our armed forces, and since then, has been responsible for countless lives in the civilian airline industry as a pilot, with hundreds of passengers on board each single day, for last the 26 years.

The Nation

On October 29, 2001, while the Taliban's rule over Afghanistan was under assault, the regime's ambassador in Islamabad gave a chaotic press conference in front of several dozen reporters sitting on the grass. On the Taliban diplomat's right sat his interpreter, Ahmad Rateb Popal, a man with an imposing presence. Like the ambassador, Popal wore a black turban, and he had a huge bushy beard. He had a black patch over his right eye socket, a prosthetic left arm and a deformed right hand, the result of injuries from an explosives mishap during an old operation against the Soviets in Kabul.

But Popal was more than just a former mujahedeen. In 1988, a year before the Soviets fled Afghanistan, Popal had been charged in the United States with conspiring to import more than a kilo of heroin. Court records show he was released from prison in 1997.

Flash forward to 2009, and Afghanistan is ruled by Popal's cousin President Hamid Karzai. Popal has cut his huge beard down to a neatly trimmed one and has become an immensely wealthy businessman, along with his brother Rashid Popal, who in a separate case pleaded guilty to a heroin charge in 1996 in Brooklyn. The Popal brothers control the huge Watan Group in Afghanistan, a consortium engaged in telecommunications, logistics and, most important, security. Watan Risk Management, the Popals' private military arm, is one of the few dozen private security companies in Afghanistan. One of Watan's enterprises, key to the war effort, is protecting convoys of Afghan trucks heading from Kabul to Kandahar, carrying American supplies.

Welcome to the wartime contracting bazaar in Afghanistan. It is a virtual carnival of improbable characters and shady connections, with former CIA officials and ex-military officers joining hands with former Taliban and mujahedeen to collect US government funds in the name of the war effort.

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed to be tried in New York

KSM to be tried in NY City and the trial will probably will be based on 911 and the destruction of the World Trade Center while, to many folks, there are many questions about the NIST investigation that are still unanswered. According to the Tribunal Hearing at Guantanimo, it is accepted as fact that Airliners hit WTC1, WTC2, and the Pentagon, although there is evidence to the contrary.

According to a Zogby poll conducted in 2006 70 million americans supported a New 9/11 Investigation, so, in my opinion, the facts submitted in the Tribunal Hearing are questionable untill the 911 issue is officially settled. What was submitted there as fact was the official story of the NIST.

Verbatim Transcript of Combatant Status Review Tribunal Hearing for ISN 10024

March 10, 2007 on board U.S. NavalBase Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Page 5

Representative in advance of this hearing for presentation to the Detainee. Inaddition, I am handing to the Tribunal the following unclassified exhibits, markedas Exhibit R-2. Copies of these Exhibits have previously been provided to thePersonal Representative. [Documents presented to Tribunal]PRESIDENT: Recorder, please read the unclassified summary of evidence for the record. Butbefore you proceed, Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, let me remind you that you mustnot comment on this evidence at this time. You will be provided with anopportunity shortly to provide any comments that you would like. Recorder,please proceed.

RECORDER: The following facts support the determination that the Detainee is an enemycombatant:

Paragraph a. On the morning of 11 September 2001, four airliners traveling over the United Stateswere hijacked. The flights hijacked were: American Airlines Flight 11, United Airlines Flight 175,American Airlines Flight 77, and United Airlines Flight 93. At approximately 8:46 a.m., AmericanAirlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center, resulting in the collapse ofthe tower at approximately 10:25 a.m. At approximately 9:05 a.m., United Airlines Flight 175 crashedinto the South Tower of the World Trade Center, resulting in the collapse of the tower atapproximately 9:55 a.m. At approximately 9:37 a.m., American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into thesouthwest side of the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. At approximately 10:03 a.m., United AirlinesFlight 93 crashed in Stoney Creek Township, Pennsylvania. These crashes and subsequent damage tothe World Trade Center and the Pentagon resulted in the deaths of 2,972 persons in New York,Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Khalid Shaikh Mohammed is the self-described mastermind of the Sept. 11th attacks, a man who called himself a "jackal" and who explained away the 3,000 victims of that day by saying "the language of war is victims." At least that is what he has told American interrogators, and what he said at a closed hearing in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, after being held in secret prisons for close to four years.

By MARGOT WILLIAMS Updated: Nov. 13, 2009

NY Times

On Dec. 8, 2008, Mr. Mohammed, along with four co-defendants, sent a note to a military judge at Guantánamo asking to confess and to plead guilty. On Nov. 13, 2009, a federal official said that Mr. Mohammed and four other men would be tried in New York City for the Sept. 11th attacks.

The decision about how to try Mr. Mohammed and other so-called "high value detainees'' at Guantánamo marks a milestone in the administration's efforts to close the facility, a policy that President Obama announced shortly after taking office but which has proven more difficult than his team anticipated.

No detainee is being moved right away. Under a law Congress enacted earlier this year, lawmakers must be given 45 days advance notice before the executive branch moves a Guantánamo detainee onto United States soil.

The decisions about how to prosecute Mr. Mohammed has been particularly difficult because their defense lawyers are expected to argue that they were illegally tortured by the Central Intelligence Agency during their confinement, tainting any evidence gathered from their interrogations. Documents have shown that the CIA used waterboarding - a controlled drowning technique - against Mr. Mohammed 183 times in March 2003.


In the military tribunal Khalid Shaikh Mohammed admitted to almost every act of terrorism that he could think of...

Rumsfeld, Defence Industries, 911, & Corporate Government in Retrospect

On September 10, 2001 Rummy said this in a speech at the Pentagon

"Today's announcements are only the first of many. We will launch others ourselves, and we will ask Congress for legislative help as well. We have, for example, asked Congress for permission to begin the process of closing excess bases and consolidating the B-1 bomber force."

One month later...

Rumsfeld Visits B-2 Bomber Base as Afghan Campaign Heats Up

By Gerry J. Gilmore
American Forces Press Service
WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo., Oct. 19, 2001 – Amid news reports that U.S. ground troops are aiding anti-Taliban forces in Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld flew to this Missouri air base today to meet B-2 Spirit bomber pilots and support crews.

Speaking to reporters en route here, Rumsfeld praised the air base's service members and declared that the B-2's more than 40-hour missions to Afghanistan are "amazing."

The secretary declined to give specifics on reported U.S. ground operations in Afghanistan. He noted that providing operations information about U.S. air attacks or the involvement of U.S. troops could imperil lives, missions and damage national security.


Jeremy Scahill mentioned the speech that Donald Rumsfeld made at the Pentagon on the day before September 11, 2001 in his book Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army. In this address Rummy outlined the streamlining of the DOD and changes in CIA policy, where radical changes would be implemented in the military, especially in the organization of the National Guard and the three branches of the armed sevices.

This speech can be found on the DOD web site and should be required reading for those who are interested in the history of what is now being called The Long War.

In this speech Rumsfeld said

"The adversary's closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy. Not the people, but the processes. Not the civilians, but the systems. Not the men and women in uniform, but the uniformity of thought and action that we too often impose on them."

"We know the adversary. We know the threat. And with the same firmness of purpose that any effort against a determined adversary demands, we must get at it and stay at it."

"Some might ask, how in the world could the Secretary of Defense attack the Pentagon in front of its people? To them I reply, I have no desire to attack the Pentagon; I want to liberate it. We need to save it from itself."

"Let there be no question: the 2.7 million people who wear our country's uniform -- active, Guard and Reserve -- and the close to 700,000 more who support them in civilian attire, comprise the finest military in the history of the world. They stand ready to face down any threat, anytime, anywhere. But we must do more."

"Our business processes and regulations seems to be engineered to prevent any mistake, and by so doing, they discourage any risk. But ours is a nation born of ideas and raised on improbability, and risk aversion is not America's ethic, and more important, it must not be ours."

"Those who fear danger do not volunteer to storm beaches and take hills, sail the seas, and conquer the skies. Now we must free you to take some of the same thoughtful, reasoned risks in the bureaucracy that the men and women in uniform do in battle."

"To that end, we're announcing today a series of steps the Department of Defense will take to shift our focus and our resources from bureaucracy to battlefield, from tail to tooth."

"Today's announcements are only the first of many. We will launch others ourselves, and we will ask Congress for legislative help as well. We have, for example, asked Congress for permission to begin the process of closing excess bases and consolidating the B-1 bomber force."

"But we have the ability—and, therefore, the responsibility—to reduce waste and improve operational efficiency on our own. Already we have made some progress. We've eliminated some 31 of the 72 acquisition-related advisory boards. We now budget based on realistic estimates. We're improving the acquisition process. We're investing $400 million in public-private partnerships for military housing. Many utility services to military installations will be privatized."

"Because the Department must respond quickly to changing threats, we're overhauling the 40-year-old Planning, Programming, and Budgeting System, or PPBS, the annual process of forecasting threats for the next several years, matching threats to programs and programs to budgets."

"In order to make decisions more quickly, we must slash duplication and encourage cooperation. Currently the Departments of the Army, the Air Force and the Navy operate separate but parallel staffs for their civilian and uniformed chiefs. These staffs largely work the same issues and perform the same functions. Secretaries White and Roach will soon announce plans for realigning the Departments to support information sharing, speed decision-making, integrate Reserve and Guard headquarters into Department headquarters. Secretary England is engaging a broad agenda of change in the Department of Navy as well."

"Maybe we need agencies for some of those functions. Indeed, I know we do. Perhaps a public-private partnership would make sense for others, and I don't doubt at least a few could be outsized -- outsourced altogether."

"Like the private sector's best-in-class companies, DOD should aim for excellence in functions that are either directly related to warfighting or must be performed by the Department. But in all other cases, we should seek suppliers who can provide these non-core activities efficiently and effectively. The Senior Executive Council will begin a review of the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the Defense Logistics Agency and Defense Information Service Agency."

"To transform the Department, we must take advantage of the private sector's expertise. I've asked the members of the Senior Executive Council to streamline the acquisition process and spur innovation in our traditional supplier base."

And even mentioned Health Care

"Department headquarters are hardly the only scenes of redundant bureaucracy. Health care is another. Each service branch has its own surgeon general and medical operation. At the department level, four different agencies claim some degree of control over the delivery of military health care."

"We've begun to consolidate health care delivery under our TriCare management activity. Over the next two years we will reform the procurement of care from the private sector. I've asked the military departments and Personnel and Readiness organization to complete a revamping of the military health system by fiscal year 2003."

"Finally, this effort will succeed because it must. We really have no choice. It is not, in the end, about business practices, nor is the goal to improve figures on the bottom line. It's really about the security of the United States of America. And let there be no mistake, it is a matter of life and death. Our job is defending America, and if we cannot change the way we do business, then we cannot do our job well, and we must. So today we declare war on bureaucracy, not people, but processes, a campaign to shift Pentagon resources from the tail to the tooth. All hands will be required, and it will take the best of all of us."
