In the hours after the attacks on 9/11, American authorities swept down upon Islamic men throughout the entire nation, arresting them and imprisoning them without charges, without lawyers being present, and without the right to trial. After about 90 days, the government began moving many of these men to the refurbished military prison at Guantanamo Bay, in Cuba.
Why did the government use the Guantanamo Bay Prison in Cuba rather than bases within the United States? The answer is easy: by moving the prisoners outside American soil, the Bush Administration could successfully claim to the U.S. Supreme Court that these prisoners were out of the jurisdiction of the American Judiciary System. These men were labeled "Enemy Combatants" and were granted no right to defend their innocence whatsoever.
This sad fact means that Skull & Bones President Bush could treat these poor prisoners any way he saw fit. The reality is that these men were tortured nigh unto death, having been completely deprived of any Due Process which America traditionally grants its foreign prisoners. America's national morality sunk to a new low internationally, led by a "Christian" President, George W. Bush!
Meanwhile, American forces invaded Afghanistan to "capture" Osama bin Laden and to make America free from terrorist threats, a goal which we are still pursuing after seven long years of battle. While our forces initially succeeded against the Taliban, adult men were swept up and arrested as "Enemy Combatants" and shipped off to Guantanamo Bay.
For the past seven years, foreign citizens have come to the point where they viewed Guantanamo Bay Prison as the #1 symbol of American aggression and totalitarianism.
Beginning in November, 2001, Cutting Edge was warning that the likelihood seemed great that many of the men being arrested on "suspicion" of terrorism were innocent, but were being given no chance whatsoever to prove it. Instead, they were being sucked down into a whirlpool of events and forces totally out of their control. In all likelihood, these men's lives were being systematically ruined.
Now, we learn that we were right all along, that many of these prisoners were innocent after all -- and American authorities were aware of this fact all along!
NEWS BRIEF: "Many at Gitmo innocent, says former Bush official", The China Post, March 21, 2009
"SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Many detainees locked up at Guantanamo were innocent men swept up by U.S. forces unable to distinguish enemies from noncombatants, a former Bush administration official said Thursday. 'There are still innocent people there', Lawrence B. Wilkerson, a Republican who was chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Colin Powell, told The Associated Press. 'Some have been there six or seven years'.”
Not only is this report a tragedy because these prisoners were being tortured so repeatedly, but Wilkerson proceeded to throw gasoline on this fire by revealing that American prison authorities became convinced very early that many of these men were completely innocent, and yet refused to release them back to their families and their normal lives!
"Wilkerson ... told the AP he learned from briefings and by communicating with military commanders that the U.S. soon realized many Guantanamo detainees were innocent but nevertheless held them in hopes they could provide information for a 'mosaic' of intelligence. 'It did not matter if a detainee were innocent. Indeed, because he lived in Afghanistan and was captured on or near the battle area, he must know something of importance', Wilkerson wrote in the blog. He said intelligence analysts hoped to gather 'sufficient information about a village, a region, or a group of individuals, that dots could be connected and terrorists or their plots could be identified'.”
This reasoning is nonsense! Applying this type of reasoning to an innocent man dooms him to daily imprisonment and daily denial of normal family life with his loved ones; it also means that these innocent men were subject to constant regimens of extreme torture. Now you know why Jesus Christ has to hold a final, White Throne Judgment so that all these horrific sins are accounted for.
Let us now get back to our featured article.
"Navy Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon, a Pentagon spokesman, declined to comment on Wilkerson's specific allegations ... The military has insisted that those held at Guantanamo were enemy combatants and posed a threat to the United States. In his posting for The Washington Note blog, Wilkerson wrote that 'U.S. leadership became aware of this lack of proper vetting very early on and, thus, of the reality that many of the detainees were innocent of any substantial wrongdoing, had little intelligence value, and should be immediately released'.”
Unfortunately, this sound advice was never carried out, so these men have suffered 6-7 years of extreme prison conditions and horrific torture for no good reason! But, we are not surprised because we had been following this torture story since October, 2001, when news stories began to break, reporting that the Bush Administration was torturing the Islamic prisoners which American forces had arrested since 9/11.
Even though the Bush White House vehemently denied these reports, I read them carefully with my eye trained in Army Intelligence. We began to sound the alarm that torture was illegal both in America and on the international stage. We also warned that if President Bush and the CIA persisted in torturing prisoners, they would be subject to both American law and charges from the International Criminal Court.
One year later, when the torture abuse scandal broke at the Iraqi prison Abu Ghraib, we learned that the White House legal counsel hade written a quasi-legal opinion which stated that, during a war on terror, the President was not bound by any law, American or international.
Then, we learned that American interrogators, under the direct influence of the Pentagon and Dick Cheney, had created tortures specific to Islamic men at the Guantanamo Bay prison and had perfected them on the poor innocent men there before they shipped the torture technique to Abu Ghraib for use on Islamic prisoners there.
We steadfastly opposed torture on four major grounds:
1) The Bible does not allow torture so a "Christian" should not be carrying it out;
2) Experienced interrogators have always maintained that torture does not produce any useful intelligence as the poor victim will simply tell his torturers what they think the interrogators want to hear, simply in order to stop the pain. If torturing does not produce any good, solid intelligence, then why do it? I have always believed that Bush/Cheney foisted this torture regimen on these hapless prisoners simply to intimidate all Muslims throughout the world, and cause them to fear the American war machine.
This latter point brings us to the next reason we opposed torture.
3) The Islamic world would discover that torturing was occurring and would be so incensed that tens of millions of average Muslims throughout the world would turn against the United States and its allies, including the moderate Arab states which have always been pro-American. It seemed to me that the price of weakening and undermining moderate Arab states was not worth the risk, especially since no good information ever flows from this practice.
4) America would become a pariah nation in the eyes of the world. We would lose the moral high ground we have occupied since the end of World War II. Now that Obama is the President, the degree to which peoples throughout the globe hate us is shocking. It is amazing how quickly Americans have become the hated ones throughout the world.
New stories have now appeared on this subject of torture, so let us examine those now.
NEWS BRIEF: "Officials: Torture Confessions Not Proven Useful", Truthout News, 30 March 2009
"Washington - When CIA officials subjected their first high-value captive, Abu Zubaida, to waterboarding and other harsh interrogation methods, they were convinced that they had in their custody an Al Qaeda leader who knew details of operations yet to be unleashed, and they were facing increasing pressure from the White House to get those secrets out of him. The methods succeeded in breaking him, and the stories he told of Al Qaeda terrorism plots sent CIA officers around the globe chasing leads."
"In the end, though, not a single significant plot was foiled as a result of Abu Zubaida's tortured confessions, according to former senior government officials who closely followed the interrogations. Nearly all of the leads attained through the harsh measures quickly evaporated."
This story corroborates what we were reporting in November, 2001, i.e., that the victim will say anything to stop the pain of the torture, even if he knows the respite will be short-lived. Therefore, torture as a means of interrogating prisoners is roundly rejected by professional interrogators. But, that did not stop the rabid Bush Administration from torturing Islamic prisoners repeatedly over the past 7 years.
This next segment demonstrates how flawed American intelligence truly was.
"Moreover, within weeks of his capture, US officials had gained evidence that made clear they had misjudged Abu Zubaida. President Bush had publicly described him as 'Al Qaeda's chief of operations', and other top officials called him a 'trusted associate' of Osama bin Laden and a major figure in the planning of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. None of that was accurate, the new evidence showed."
How bad was our intelligence on Abu Zubaida?
"Abu Zubaida was not even an official member of Al Qaeda ... Rather, he was a 'fixer' for radical Muslim ideologues, and he ended up working directly with Al Qaeda only after Sept. 11 - and that was because the United States stood ready to invade Afghanistan."
Isn't this amazing? In the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, Assistant Deputy of Defense, Wolfensberger, vowed that the United States was going to "end the existence" of rogue, enemy terror states. We warned that such a strategy demanded -- it absolutely demanded -- that our intelligence was perfect., or a nation could be destroyed for no good reason and a lot of people could die for an equally no good reason.
Not only do we see this warning to be true regarding the wholesale arrest and torture of people we know now to be innocent, but the entire Iraq war was based upon the lies of President Bush and other key members of his Cabinet. We were told that Saddam was a threat to give nuclear warheads to Osama bin Laden when the CIA knew that Saddam hated the ultra-religious bin Laden. Bush Administration officials warned that we needed to invade Iraq because Saddam had a weaponized nuclear military capability, when we knew that this was an absolute lie (Read NEWS1890 and NEWS1890b, "BUSH/BLAIR JUSTIFICATION OF IRAQ INVASION: NOW PROVEN TO BE LIES, DISTORTIONS, EXAGGERATIONS! Parts 1 and 2]
Now we realize that President Bush was following the same pattern of lies and disregard of the law in all aspects of his presidency! Former V.P. Cheney is said to be very concerned that he might be charged in International Criminal Court for War Crimes.
NEWS BRIEF: "Scared Cheney puts his head in the noose: The former vice-president fears being held to account on torture and is lashing out", by Andrew Sullivan, Times Online, March 29, 2009
"... one has to wonder what possessed Dick Cheney, the former vice-president, to come lumbering out twice in the first 50 days of the Obama administration to blast the new guy on national television. Growling and sneering, Cheney accused the new president of actively endangering the lives of Americans by ending the detention and interrogation programmes of the last administration, and vowing to close Guantanamo Bay .. So what was Cheney thinking? My guess is that he fears he is in trouble. This fear has been created by Obama, but indirectly. Obama has declined to launch a prosecution of Cheney for war crimes, as many in his party (and outside it) would like. He has set up a review of detention, rendition and interrogation policies. And he has simply declassified many of the infamous torture memos kept under wraps by Bush."
Since Barack Obama won the Presidency, politicians and activists on the Liberal side of the Democrat Party have been screaming for the new President to launch an investigation into War Crimes committed by the Bush Administration. Obama has so far declined to initiate such an inquiry. But, now clamors are appearing from overseas to indict President Bush and his key officials on War Crimes. Cheney might be feeling this heat, but I believe that he will not go to trial unless the Illuminati wants him to be convicted.
Stay with us, as we shall reveal exactly why the Illuminati might want Bush and Cheney convicted of War Crimes.
But first, let us get back to the issue of the secret Bush Administration memos which Obama is now declassifying.
"... as the memos have emerged, the awful truth of what Cheney actually authorised becomes harder and harder to deny. And Cheney is desperately trying to maintain a grip on the narrative before it grips him by the throat. The threat, however subtle, is real. Eric Holder, the new attorney-general, while eschewing a formal investigation, has told Republicans “prosecutorial and investigative judgments must depend on the facts, and no one is above the law”. The justice department is also sitting on an internal report into the calibre of the various torture memos drafted by Bush appointees in the Office of Legal Counsel. The report has apparently already found the memos beneath minimal legal credibility, which implies they were ordered up to make the law fit the already-made decision to torture various terror suspects."
Of course, the legal memos which told Bush that he could act with impunity because he was at war with terrorists were created after the fact. These memos were written to give the appearance of legality, when no such legal basis existed. Bush's White House attorney at the time was the infamous Gonzales, who later became Attorney General in one of the greatest pieces of irony ever to exist; here a man became Attorney General who trampled on the Constitution when he was the White House attorney!
Chain of Command All The Way To The White House
During the Abu Ghraib torture controversy, General Janice Karpinski stated that the torture chain of command reached all the way into the White House. This next news segment speaks directly to this most controversial issue. Bush and Cheney did know -- they most certainly did approve!
"But the big impending release may well be three memos from May 2005, detailing specific torture techniques authorised by Bush and Cheney for use against terror suspects. Newsweek described the yet to be released memos thus: 'One senior Obama official . . . said the memos were ‘ugly’ and could embarrass the CIA. Other officials predicted they would fuel demands for a ‘truth commission’ on torture'.”
Cheney himself is highly at legal risk.
"The narrative that has taken shape since Cheney left office and lost the chance to stonewall inquiries is damning to the former vice-president ... The documents detailed horrifying CIA practices that the Red Cross unequivocally called torture – shoving prisoners in tiny, air-tight coffins, waterboarding, beatings, sleep deprivation, stress positions: all the techniques we have now come to know almost by heart. And torture is a war crime. War crimes have no statute of limitations and are among the most serious crimes of which one can be accused. This is what Cheney is desperate to avoid."
Former President Bush and V.P. Cheney will be indicted and tried at the International War Crimes only if the Illuminati wants them to appear. Why would the Global Elite want to see Bush and Cheney tried for War Crimes, when both men are totally sold out to the global plan? The answer might surprise you.
Why The Illuminati Might Script Bush and Cheney To Be Convicted of International War Crimes
In early 2004, we posted an article which proved that President Bush and British PM Blair first decided to go to war against Saddam and then invented -- or have others invent -- the "intelligence data" which would support their decision (Read full details in NEWS2045, entitled, "Impeachment of President Bush?") The infamous "Downing Street Memo" proved that false intelligence was created to support the prior decision to go to war. This, also, is a War Crime. As I have long stated, the end result of the war in Iraq was planned to be seen as a disaster. President Bush ordered the attack on Iraq, exercising his authority as a National Sovereign, ignoring the collective will of the United Nations. Since the Illuminati staged World Wars I and II for the express purpose of eliminating National Sovereignty in favor of the Global Sovereignty of the UN, Bush's invasion had to come to naught! No, the outcome must be far stronger than that; Bush's invasion has to be seen in the final light as an unmitigated disaster -- for both America and the world.
We certainly are seeing the outworking of that part of the plan.
Further, President Bush claims he is a Born Again Christian, too many Evangelical leaders accept him as their de facto leader, and the world too readily sees his campaign in Afghanistan and Iraq as a "Crusade" by a Christian Army. Therefore, if President Bush is discredited, both National Sovereignty and Fundamental Christianity will be discredited. If this occurs, the stage may be set for persecution of Christians by the 44th President.
The writings of the Illuminati clearly point to two factors as being a serious enemy to the global plan to stage the Masonic Christ. The first deadly enemy is the right of a sovereign leader to take actions he deems to be in the best interest of his individual country. World Wars I and II were expressly fought to establish the principle that National Sovereignty must die and be replaced by Global Sovereignty headed by the Masonic Christ through the United Nations.
The second deadly enemy is Fundamental, Bible-believing Christians. Liberal Christians are not a problem; only Fundamental Christians who literally believe the Bible and who literally believe in End of the Age Bible prophecy are a major stumbling block to the Illuminati Plan. Therefore, why not raise up a Skull & Bones President who will pretend to be Christian, aided and abetted by Evangelical Christian leaders who have long ago sold out to the political establishment (NEWS1818 for full details)?
Thus, if President Bush takes a very hard fall into the Abyss of Disgrace, he will destroy the world's faith in the principle of National Sovereignty and in Fundamental, Bible-believing Christianity. In one fell swoop, the two major enemies of the Masters of the Illuminati are cut down to the ground, never to arise again -- at least in this Dispensation.
Truly, the world is speeding toward the End of the Age, to that point in time when the Holy Spirit withdraws His restraining power so that Antichrist can arise.
