Nuclear Concerns/B52 Nuke Follow-Up
Here are a couple of news items that were forwarded to me today by Alfred Webre, previously referenced numerous times in this blog.
First is a note from Webre regarding attempts by ETs to warn us of the dangers of nuclear power and weapons. I believe that what he is referring to is that since the end of WWII and into and throughout the Cold War and into the present day, there have been continual ET sightings at nuclear power plants, weapons manufacturing facilities, missle launch sites, etc. Many ET researchers agree that ETs are attempting to warn us from continuing down the nuclear path. Webre will be talking about this in detail on his radio show on Oct 6, it sounds like it will be exciting. Again, his shows are aired on Saturday nights weekly from KPHX AM in Phoenix, you can either tune in live on KPHX's website, or you can listen anytime to the archives of his show at exopoliticsradio.com.
Following Webre's announcement is a report by Wayne Madsen on the story that's been going around on the six nuclear missles that were found on the wings of a B-52 bomber bound for the Middle East. This incident as well as the governmental explanations for the incident has been previously reported on by national news media. I'm not familiar enough to vouch for Madsen's credibility, but if true, Madsen's assertion that the Air Force went against Executive office orders and would not transfer these weapons to the Middle East is an interesting and hair-raising and hopeful read.
From Alfred Webre:
NOTE: Advanced upper dimensional Extraterrestrial civilizations continue to signal the specific dangers of nuclear weapons, and nuclear power to the biosphere, all living things, and the dimensional ecology. On Oct 6, 2007, EXOPOLITICS RADIO will be broadcasting a special program on ET signaling its concern over nuclear power plants, for which the Bush Administration is now seeking an expansion with $50 billion loan guarantees. Researchers now hold that nuclear power amounts to a low-level nuclear war against the residential population adjacent to the .

Air Force refused to fly weapons to Middle East theater
By Wayne Madsen
Sept. 24, 2007
WMR has learned from U.S. and foreign intelligence sources that the B-52 transporting six stealth AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles, each armed with a W-80-1 nuclear warhead, on August 30, were destined for the Middle East via Barksdale Air Force Base in .
However, elements of the Air Force, supported by U.S. intelligence agency personnel, successfully revealed the ultimate destination of the nuclear weapons and the mission was aborted due to internal opposition within the Air Force and U.S. Intelligence Community.
Yesterday, the /Washington Post/ attempted to explain away the fact that America's nuclear command and control system broke down in an unprecedented manner by reporting that it was the result of "security failures at multiple levels." It is now apparent that the command and control breakdown, reported as a BENT SPEAR incident to the Secretary of Defense and White House, was not the result of a command and control chain-of-command "failures" but the result of a revolt and push back by various echelons within the Air Force and intelligence agencies against a planned U.S. attack on Iran using nuclear and conventional weapons.
/ story on BENT SPEAR may have actually been an effort in damage control by the Bush administration. WMR has been informed by a knowledgeable source that one of the six nuclear-armed cruise missiles was, and may still be, unaccounted for. In that case, the nuclear reporting incident would have gone far beyond SPEAR to a National Command Authority alert known as EMPTY QUIVER, with the special classification of PINNACLE.
Just as this report was being prepared, /Newsweek/ reported that 's recently-departed Middle East adviser, David Wurmser, told a small group of advisers some months ago that Cheney had considered asking to launch a missile attack on the Iranian nuclear site at Natanz. Cheney reasoned that after an Iranian retaliatory strike, the United States would have ample reasons to launch its own massive attack on . However, plans for to attack directly were altered to an Israeli attack on a supposed Syrian-Iranian-North Korean nuclear installation in northern Syria.
WMR has learned that a U.S. attack on using nuclear and conventional weapons was scheduled to coincide with Israel's September 6 air attack on a reputed Syrian nuclear facility in Dayr az-Zwar, near the village of Tal Abyad, in northern Syria, near the Turkish border. Israel's attack, code named OPERATION ORCHARD, was to provide a reason for the U.S. to strike . The neo-conservative propaganda onslaught was to cite the cooperation of the 's three remaining "Axis of Evil" states -- , , and -- to justify a sustained Israeli attack on and a massive U.S. military attack on .
WMR has learned from military sources on both sides of the Atlantic that there was a definite connection between Israel's OPERATION ORCHARD and BENT SPEAR involving the B-52 that flew the six nuclear-armed cruise missiles from Minot Air Force Base in to Barksdale. There is also a connection between these two events as the Pentagon's highly-classified PROJECT CHECKMATE, a compartmented program that has been working on an attack plan for since June 2007, around the same time that Cheney was working on the joint Israeli-U.S. attack scenario on .
PROJECT CHECKMATE was leaked in an article by military analyst Eric Margolis in the Rupert Murdoch-owned newspaper, the /Times of /, is a program that involves over two dozen Air Force officers and is headed by Brig. Gen. Lawrence Stutzriem and his chief civilian adviser, Dr. Lani Kass, a former Israeli military intelligence officer who, astoundingly, is now involved in planning a joint U.S.-Israeli massive military attack on that involves a "decapitating" blow on by hitting between three to four thousand targets in the country. Stutzriem and Kass report directly to the Air Force Chief of Staff, General Michael Moseley, who has also been charged with preparing a report on the B-52/nuclear weapons incident.
Kass' area of speciality is cyber-warfare, which includes ensuring "information blockades," such as that imposed by the Israeli government on the Israeli media regarding the Syrian air attack on the alleged Syrian "nuclear installation." British intelligence sources have reported that the Israeli attack on was a "true flag" attack originally designed to foreshadow a U.S. attack on . After the push back against transporting the six cruise nuclear-armed AGM-129s to the Middle East, went ahead with its attack on in order to help ratchet up tensions between on one side and , , and Pyongyang on the other.
The other part of CHECKMATE's brief is to ensure that a media "perception management" is waged against , , and . This involves articles such as that which appeared with Joby Warrick's and ' bylines in yesterdays /Washington Post/. The article, titled "The Saga of a Bent Spear," quotes a number of seasoned Air Force nuclear weapons experts as saying that such an incident is unprecedented in the history of the Air Force. For example, Retired Air Force General Eugene Habiger, the former chief of the U.S. Strategic Command, said he has been in the "nuclear business" since 1966 and has never been aware of an incident "more disturbing."
Command and control breakdowns involving U.S. nuclear weapons are unprecedented, except for that fact that the U.S. military is now waging an internal war against neo-cons who are embedded in the U.S. government and military chain of command who are intent on using nuclear weapons in a pre-emptive war with .
CHECKMATE and OPERATION ORCHARD would have provided the cover for a pre-emptive U.S. and Israeli attack on had it not been for BENT SPEAR involving the B-52. In on the plan to launch a pre-emptive attack on involving nuclear weapons were, according to our sources, Cheney, National Security Adviser ; members of the CHECKMATE team at the , who have close connections to Israeli intelligence and pro-Israeli think tanks in , including the Hudson Institute; British Foreign Secretary , a political adviser to prior to becoming a Member of ; Israeli political leaders like Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Likud leader ; and French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, who did his part last week to ratchet up tensions with by suggesting that war with was a probability. Kouchner retracted his statement after the U.S. plans for were delayed.
Although the Air Force tried to keep the B-52 nuclear incident from the media, anonymous Air Force personnel leaked the story to /Military Times/ on September 5, the day before the Israelis attacked the alleged nuclear installation in and the day planned for the simultaneous U.S. attack on . The leaking of classified information on U.S. nuclear weapons disposition or movement to the media, is, itself, unprecedented. Air Force regulations require the sending of classified BEELINE reports to higher Air Force authorities on the disclosure of classified Air Force information to the media.
In another highly unusual move, Defense has asked an outside inquiry board to look into BENT SPEAR, even before the Air Force has completed its own investigation, a virtual vote of no confidence in the official investigation being conducted by Major General Douglas Raaberg, chief of air and space operations at the Air Combat Command.
Gates asked former Air Force Chief of Staff, retired General Larry Welch, to lead a Defense Science Board task force that will also look into the BENT SPEAR incident. The official Air Force investigation has reportedly been delayed for unknown reasons. Welch is President and CEO of the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA), a federally-funded research contractor that operates three research centers, including one for Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President and another for the National Security Agency. One of the board members of IDA is Dr. Suzanne H. Woolsey of the Paladin Capital Group and wife of former CIA director and arch-neocon James Woolsey.
WMR has learned that neither the upper echelons of the State Department nor the British Foreign Office were privy to OPERATION ORCHARD, although Hadley briefed on Israeli spy satellite intelligence that showed the Syrian installation was a joint nuclear facility built with North Korean and Iranian assistance. However, it is puzzling why Hadley would rely on Israeli imagery intelligence (IMINT) from its OFEK (Horizon) 7 satellite when considering that U.S. IMINT satellites have greater capabilities.
The Air Force's "information warfare" campaign against media reports on CHECKMATE and OPERATION ORCHARD also affected international reporting of the recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution asking to place its under IAEA controls, similar to those that the United States wants imposed on and . The resolution also called for a nuclear-free zone throughout the Middle East. The IAEA's resolution, titled "Application of IAEA Safeguards in the Middle East," was passed by the 144-member IAEA General Meeting on September 20 by a vote of 53 to 2, with 47 abstentions. The only two countries to vote against were and the United States. However, the story carried from the IAEA meeting in by Reuters, the Associated Press, and Agence France Press, was that it was Arab and Islamic nations that voted for the resolution.
This was yet more perception management carried out by CHECKMATE, the , and their allies in and with the connivance of the media. In fact, among the 53 nations that voted for the resolution were , , , , and . The 47 abstentions were described as votes "against" the resolution even though an abstention is neither a vote for nor against a measure. America's close allies, including , , , , and Georgia, all abstained.
Suspiciously, the IAEA carried only a brief item on the resolution concerning Israel's nuclear program and a roll call vote was not available either at the IAEA's web site -- www.iaea.org -- or in the media.
The perception management campaign by the neocon operational cells in the Bush administration, and was designed to keep a focus on Iran's nuclear program, not on Israel's. Any international examination of Israel's would likely bring up Israeli nuclear scientist Mordechai Vanunu, a covert from Judaism to Christianity, who was kidnapped in by a Mossad "honey trap" named Cheryl Bentov (aka, Cindy) and a Mossad team in 1986 and held against his will in ever since.
Vanunu's knowledge of the Israeli would focus on the country's own role in nuclear proliferation, including its program to share nuclear weapons technology with apartheid South Africa and in the late 1970s and 1980s. The role of 's Director of the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency Ken Adelman in Israeli's nuclear proliferation during the time frame 1983-1987 would also come under scrutiny. Adelman, a member of the Reagan-Bush transition State Department team from November 1980 to January 1981, voiced his understanding for the nuclear weapons programs of , , and in a June 28, 1981 /New York Times/ article titled, "3 Nations Widening Nuclear Contacts." The journalist who wrote the article was . Adelman felt that the three countries wanted nuclear weapons because of their ostracism from the West, the third world, and the hostility from the Communist countries. Of course, today, the same argument can be used by , North Korea, and other "Axis of Evil" nations so designated by the neocons in the Bush administration and other governments.
There are also news reports that suggest an intelligence relationship between and . On July 21, 2004, New Zealand's /Dominion Post/ reported that three Mossad agents were involved in espionage in . Two of the Mossad agents, Uriel Kelman and Elisha Cara (aka Kra), were arrested and imprisoned by New Zealand police (an Israeli diplomat in , Amir Lati, was expelled by and intelligence identified a fourth Mossad agent involved in the espionage operation in ). The third Mossad agent in , Zev William Barkan (aka Lev Bruckenstein), fled -- for .
Foreign Minister Phil Goff revealed that Barkan, a former Israeli Navy diver, had previously worked at the Israeli embassy in Vienna, which is also the headquarters of the IAEA. He was cited by the /Sydney Morning Herald/ as trafficking in passports stolen from foreign tourists in Thailand, Myanmar,
Laos, and Cambodia. New Zealand's One News reported that Barkan was in North Korea to help the nation build a wall to keep its citizens from leaving.
The nuclear brinkmanship involving the United States and Israel and the breakdown in America's command and control systems have every major capital around the world wondering about the Bush administration's true intentions.
