This is the diary that volunteers will use to track their own work, and find out what others are digging up from these FOIA US Government documents (PDF format) at the ACLU site.
PART I — Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Section 1 A Study — leads to this diary:
PART II – MY OWN TAKE ON IRAQ AND US FAILED WORLD LEADERSHIP
Failed leadership leads to a failed state. Failure to communicate with your partners and friends in the global community, leads to isolationism and animosity. Failure for dialog and diplomacy with enemy states leads, to aggressive acts, costly errors and in the end, an unwanted war with unwarranted sacrifice of human life. Sacrifice of International Treaties and Conventions for a momentary play of hardball, leads to misgivings and misunderstanding. In the end, leads to abuse of innocent people by subordinates who try to interpret mixed signals, in their daily life of insurgency and physical attack on their lives.
No hurry, it’s Memorial Day weekend, so jump the fold —
By exploiting the 9/11 attacks on the US and the psychological fear in its aftermath, the Bush-Cheney regime focused not on the perpetrators Al-Qaeda and the Taliban rogue state, but moved immediately to invade and occupy a sovereign state of Iraq under dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. All signs point to a single goal: preserve the oil reserves in the Arabian Gulf region for America’s future consumption. By doing so, make sure the US corporations can profit to the fullest by the no-bid contracts granted to the Halliburtons, Bechtels and Exxon profit mongers. The ordinary American who tries to get an education, earn a living or raise a family, gets hit either by sacrifice in the War on Terror or in OIF/OEF. At home the majority of Americans suffer the cost of war: loss of jobs, benefits, no hospital or doctor’s bills paid, divisiveness in American society and a future with less social security.
Poor leadership and judgement after the Republican sweep of Election 2004, led this administration away from unison with our allies, the United Nations search for WMD’s in Iraq, at least half of all patriotic Americans, and forward on a path of hardship, sacrifice in blood, and especially loss of faith, hope and a dream for which America stood since its founding in 1776.
From this Section 1 of Defense Intelligence Agency DIA, all minute parts are covered that build on the falsely formulated US foreign policy, the lies and deceit before the world community and the United Nations and the quagmire the US now faces in Iraq, Mesopotamia in historic times with a culture spanning 5,000 years of civilization. The page turned by Bush-Cheney turned out to be pitch black.
My analysis — Bush-Cheney and this administration (ADM) have and are in the process of creating parallel organizations through corporations, fulfilling duties and responsibilities normally beholden to the federal government of a sovereign state. The ADM has created a dark side in American society to perform their dirty work on a scale magnitudes greater than the Iran-Contragate scandal during the Reagan years. Oliver North is their hero, admired as colleague and friend, and as an example how to combine Christian zeal with political and military power.
The dark side of the US government under leadership of Bush-Cheney
- MEMO of GWB Feb. 7, 2002 “suspension of human rights as quaranteed under GC” « 27-28 »
- civilian interrogator issues in Iraq and involvement of DHS in OIF-OEF « pp 8-12 »
- IG and DTF investigation into detainee abuse in theater of Iraq « pp 13-16 »
- interrogation policy and the murky rules of the road, GTMO « p 19 »
- ECD Ali Saleh al-Marri « pp 29-30 »
- AGP place of torture and abuse, rape of two female Iraqis « pp 22-23 »
- transfer of detainees under DOD control to foreign governments « pp 24-26 »
The United States policies of Compassion and Hope, as set out by our Great Democrat Presidents —
have been demolished by the Abrahm tank and Bulldozer attitude of Republican NEOCONS, with John Bolton as prima inter pari.
- US used methods both legal and illegal to help build Saddam’s army into the most powerful army in the Mideast outside of Israel.
- US supplied chemical and biological agents and technology to Iraq when it knew Iraq was using chemical weapons against the Iranians.
- US supplied the materials and technology for these weapons of mass destruction to Iraq at a time when it was know that Saddam was using this technology to kill his Kurdish citizens.
- US supplied intelligence and battle planning information to Iraq when those battle plans included the use of cyanide, mustard gas and nerve agents.
- US blocked UN censure of Iraq’s use of chemical weapons.
- US did not act alone in this effort.
- SU Soviet Union was the largest weapons supplier
- EU England, France and Germany were also involved in the shipment of arms and technology.
Set ’em up, knock ’em down. No wonder Galloway was so pissed.
