TIMELINE: PATH TO PANDEMONIUM by Stan Goff
- The waste of life and limb in America's latest Iraq War has been escalating wildly under Paul Bremer's watch. A few minutes with any text of Roman history makes it all too clear that the job of a proconsul is to keep his assigned imperial province quiet – but don't look to the Bush people for historical perspective. In this hard hitting and moving piece, Stan Goff, FTW Military and Veteran's Affairs Editor, reminds us that:"It is always important to ask why we start history when." When we do, "things take on a brand new aspect."

BLOOD IN THE WATER, (Watergate II)
Just as in 1972-4 the press and the powers that be are allowing the Bush administration to hang themselves with their own statements. The July 11 confession from DCI George Tenet may have doomed the Bush administration. The cancer growing on the presidency will eat All the King's Men until Bush himself is consumed. There is blood in the water and the feeding frenzy has begun. Rice and Cheney have already been singled out as the next targets.

BEYOND BUSH - Part I
Powers above the White House are deciding that it's time for the Bush gang to go. As a Watergate-style take down is being meticulously put into place, the question is not whether the Bush Administration will be removed before or after the 2004 election. The important questions are whether Bush's successor will address 9/11, Peak Oil, civil liberties, or any of the critical issues. What is being done even now to control the challengers in the Presidential election? A clandestine drama is unfolding and we'll help you understand it. This special free series is a must-read going into 2004.

$380 Oil? BANKS TALK OIL DEPLETION - by Michael Kane
Banks are run by economists and business majors, not scientists. That these prestigious financial institutions are making any statement even hinting at peak oil is nothing short of a miracle. Global energy depletion and its implications for modern civilization flies in the face of their most cherished pet economic theories. That they are talking about it at all means that they can no longer ignore it. Now they will try to manage the problem so as to provide themselves with the greatest profits. There is no talk about financing research into substitutes, nor any mention of preparing for what is to follow. Their sole interest is in using the rising price of petroleum (due to depletion) to make a fast buck. Their actions will likely exacerbate the discrepancy between supply and demand along with the ensuing economic depression, while making it more difficult for the general public to prepare for the post-peak world. And amid all the confusion and obfuscation, it will probably appear to much of the public that this whole crisis was produced through the contrivance of the oil companies and other entrepreneurs.

Renewables PART 2: Emphasizing Proximity - by Michael Kane
Clearly, a massive program of renewable energy construction is in order. But it is just as clear that neither the federal government nor the majority of American citizens has the insight or the will to undertake such a program - and someday soon (given the American monetary position in the world system), they may not even have the capital. John C. Pennie and others like him deserve respect for their prudence and foresight, and for the small but real contribution their renewables make to the environmental situation -- but their projects have little to do with the national emergency that FTW expects in the middle term. -JAH

From Adam Porter at BBC - International Energy Agency Proposes Ban-Rationing-Enforced Quotas on Oil Consumption - Measures Would Apply in US
I had to read this story twice to understand its import for all of us. This should have been the number one story on every network and on the front page of every paper. Even as the hubris of the mind-numbing mass media is telling us there's only a slight problem with oil, the International Energy Agency is preparing measures that could result in police-enforced driving bans, rationing and quotas here in the US. It is clear that the IEA admits that some kind of immediate and drastic reduction in consumption is necessary to avoid a breakdown. This is the same IEA that has been saying for years, "Don't worry, There's plenty of oil." -MCR

No Free Lunch, Part 1: A Rebuttal of Thomas Gold's Claims for Abiotic Oil, by Jean Laherrere; edited by Dale Allen Pfeiffer
The following paper is a critique of the writings of Thomas Gold, written by Jean Laherrere. It is a scientific dialogue and contains many technical terms and references which may be nearly unfathomable to the layperson. However, it is a very important discussion because it lays bare many of the errors in Gold's arguments. Unfortunately, Thomas Gold is no longer with us to respond to these criticisms. However, this critique has been floating around in one form or another for a few years now, and it is not unreasonable to assume that Thomas Gold was aware of it.

The Peak in U.S. Coal Production LNG Import Issues Key – by Gregson Vaux

As FTW has long predicted, oil and gas shortages would inevitably lead the US into short-term, knee-jerk, reversion to coal and nuclear options as means to put proverbial fingers into the leaking energy dike.

The Bush Administration has ignored the report entirely, aided by a powerful global-warming-denial lobby which promotes junk science produced by industry. . .

Peak Oil: Debate or Feud? - Historic J.P. Morgan Investor Conference Marks Official Recognition of Peak Oil Issues By Financial Planners by Suzan Mazur
- As the war on Iraq drives petroleum politics into the media mainstream, and gasoline prices hover over a summer that hasn't hit yet, more and more people are wondering whether there really is a geological miracle under the dunes. Those who believe world oil production has peaked, or will do so within the decade, argue with those who believe that oil is either inexhaustible or plentiful-but-inconvenient. In the latter case, they hope, technology will extend our reach far enough, and soon enough, that no major interruption of our industrial society will be necessary.

In this story Suzan Mazur takes us through the recent JP Morgan conference call, "Peak Oil: Fact or Fiction," with a sharp survey of the issues and a few key players.

Global Climate Change and Peak Oil: The Sword of Damocles Has Two Edges (Part I) by Dale Allen Pfeiffer
- Like the withdrawal symptoms endured by an addict, the effects of the coming petroleum crisis will ravage the American body politic and work necessary but painful changes in the life of the entire human community. "Peak oil" is the crisis of getting off petroleum: "Climate change" is the almost irreversible legacy of two hundred years of fossil fuel pollution. At their center is an oil economy bound to militarism by the petrodollar money system. But wealth and weapons are not much use under seven meters of melted glacial seawater. The education of the public is the key to a safer world - so we're educating each other. In part one of this story, FTW energy editor Dale Allen Pfeiffer sets out a detailed picture of the climate change issue and its paramount importance.

Past is future as Iran-Contra, Clinton Politics and Jim Crow laws intersect America 's march to control rapidly depleting oil supplies. There are many ways to defeat the Empire's enemies.

EATING FOSSIL FUELS by Dale Allen Pfeiffer
- The most frightening article FTW has ever published is now a free story for all to read. Our paid subscribers read it last October. As Peak Oil and its effects become a raging national controversy it's time everyone reads the story that puts the most serious implications of Peak Oil and Gas into perspective. Your biggest problem is not that your SUV might go hungry, it's that you and your children might go hungry. What has been documented here is no secret to US and foreign policy makers as China experiences grain shortages this year and, as CNN's Lou Dobbs recently reported, the US and Canada will soon no longer be the world's breadbasket.

OIL SHORTAGES LOOK CERTAIN BY 2007; LNG TO THE RESCUE? By Dale Allen Pfeiffer
- It takes about four years to bring a new oil field online after discovery. The Petroleum Review has done a detailed analysis in a world where discovery of "mega" fields has fallen off to almost nothing and looked at what's coming online in the next few years. The conclusion: by 2007 the world will start to feel the real bite of Peak Oil. When it comes to LNG as a savior for the economy and home heating, every analysis says that whatever LNG arrives will be too little, too late. In both cases, the madness of the markets may actually produce temporary price drops which will remove the capital needed to fund alternatives right out of the equation and make the end result more deadly for everyone. Until the last second, false hopes will be fueled by market numbers hiding a grim truth.

NATURAL GAS UPDATES -- A DARK AND COLD FUTURE
With CNN reporting electrical power stations running out of natural gas; with officials warning of possible rolling blackouts; with almost all new homes heated by gas; and with Australia touting a $50 Bn LNG project while acknowledging a severe US energy crisis, at least five people have frozen to death because there was no heat. It is time to re-examine current natural gas production and reserve figures. Immediately after the CNN story, Connecticut officials tried to spin the shrotages by saying that power companies had sold their gas on the spot markets for profit. But, as FTW Energy Editor Dale Allen Pfeiffer reports, the numbers tell a completely different story. The crisis we have predicted is here, and it will only get worse. North America is almost out of gas.

PROOF OF PEAK OIL AND GAS – CNN REPORTS BLACKOUTS IMMINENT AS PLANTS RUN OUT OF NATURAL GAS DUE TO NORTHEAST HEATING DEMAND
– For almost two years FTW has warned its subscribers that diminishing, irreplaceable supplies of natural gas might cause people to freeze to death this winter. As CNN reported yesterday, six people have already died and officials are concerned about a power grid that has no fuel substitutes and people who have no other way to keep warm.

DRAWING LESSONS FROM EXPERIENCE - Part 2
The Agricultural Crises in North Korea and Cuba - Part II. Both Cuba and North Korea are "Communist" countries. Yet the people of one country are eating while the people of the other are starving. Why? In taking a deeper look, we see in Cuba a form of capitalism and private ownership centered around local communities. Forget the labels. As dwindling supplies of oil and gas are beginning to impact global food supply - about a decade ahead of predictions, the difference between eating and starving takes on a whole new meaning - even for Americans.

China's rising grain prices could signal global food crisis - It's Happening Faster Than We Expected
The Agence France-Presse Is reporting that a major famine may be looming for China and that their purchases of US grain could multiply. The AFP Story does not address the serious Peak Oil and Gas issues raised by Dale Allen Pfeiffer in Eating Fossil Fuels or acknowledge that US grain harvests are falling. It does add the new wrinkle of how Global Warming (caused by burning oil and gas) continually reduces crop yields. On top of a recent CNN report announcing that soon the US will not be able to export any grain at all, it is clear that the effects of Peak Oil and Gas have begun to hit sooner than anyone expected.

DRAWING LESSONS FROM EXPERIENCE
Part I of a Special Two Part Series by Dale Allen Pfeiffer - We have been asked, so often, "What can the people do about Peak Oil?" Now FTW looks at the effects of drastic oil shortages in two different countries that have seen their supplies of oil and gas cut to almost nothing, North Korea and Cuba. One, North Korea, is a bitter lesson about what happens to complex systems when the oil and gas run out. Because its economy is top-down, like the US, its devastating failure to adapt is an omen for what we can look forward to, unless we change the financial incentive system and ownership in this country. On the other hand, Cuba, with rapidly increasing local ownership and control, with government decentralization and an imperative on maintaining standards of living in local areas is a model of success and the embodiment of Catherine Austin Fitts' Solari model for place-based equity and financing.

by Dale Allen Pfeiffer. As CNN, The Independent and Jane's Defence Weekly acknowledge the reality of Peak Oil and Gas, admitting that actual global reserves may be 80% less than previously reported, FTW publishes the most important and frightening story in its history. Impeccable research shows that US food production is requiring more and more hydrocarbon energy to produce less and less food. Until now, no one has really reported how much oil, gas and fresh water (pumped by hydrocarbons) we need to feed ourselves and the planet and what we can look forward to as the crisis starts to hit home.

FTW EXCLUSIVE, "Behind The Blackout"
Energy Investment Banker, Government Energy Advisor and CFR member Matthew Simmons offers candid and explosive observations on the Northeast Blackout, Peak Oil and Gas and tells the truth about America's energy supplies.

It's like with a human being who passes a certain age in life. Getting older does not mean the same thing as death. It means progressively diminishing capacity, a rapid decline, followed by a long tail."

IMMINENT PERIL (Part I)
The Northeast power grid failure demonstrates that the environment and Peak Oil and Gas have now formed a deadly alliance. Yet detailed, even prophetic warnings and analyses of energy issues are now coming true with stark precision. FTW's Contributing Editor for Energy, Dale Allen Pfeiffer, takes a detailed look at a record that foresaw the crises we are seeing today and leads us in the direction of paths that can help address energy issues that have just begun to eat at the fabric of society. The only way out comes from a complete revision of the way society works, starting with an overriding commitment to sustainability (a reduction of consumption) and a commitment to policy, which means political leadership. The latter is perhaps more scarce a commodity than natural gas.

Revealing Statements from a Bush Insider about Peak Oil and Natural Gas Depletion: FTW EXCLUSIVE
Bush energy advisor to the secret Energy Task Force headed by Dick Cheney before 9/11, Matthew Simmons, spoke candidly about Peak Oil at a recent Paris conference attended by FTW Editor Mike Ruppert. The transcribed remarks of this CFR member at this exclusive conference are chilling affirmations of the only issue driving world events since 9/11.

"The uh, I think basically that now, that peaking of oil will never be accurately predicted until after the fact. But the event will occur, and my analysis is leaning me more by the month, the worry that peaking is at hand; not years away. If it turns out I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. But if I'm right, the unforeseen consequences are devastating...But unfortunately the world has no Plan B if I'm right. The facts are too serious to ignore. Sadly the pessimist-optimist debate started too late."

Deployment of US troops for the Iraqi invasion was also the preparation for the seizure of Saudi Arabia's reserves, the largest in the world. And the smaller but more accessible prizes of West African reserves have become predictably threatened by rebel uprisings and - Surprise! - al Qaeda. Peak Oil is confirmed yet again.

Post-Soviet Lessons for a Post-American Century (PART ONE OF THREE) - By Dmitry Orlov - Special to From the Wilderness
Several months ago, Dmitry Orlov suggested writing an essay for www.survivingpeakoil.com relating how the people of Russia survived the collapse of the Soviet Union. I heartily welcomed the idea, and that was the last I heard from Dmitry for some time. I had just about given up on the article when it finally did appear a few weeks ago. In reading through this article, I quickly ascertained that Dmitry had far exceeded his goal. It was clear that this article deserved a larger readership than I could give it at survivingpeakoil.com. As science editor at From The Wilderness, I passed this article on to Mike and Jamey, and they readily agreed that it should be published by FTW. Through his comparison and contrast of the Former Soviet Union to the U.S., Dmitry provides us with one of the most penetrating analyses of post-peak that I have read. This article is packed with original insights derived from personal experience. The picture which Dmitry paints is unsettling, but it is far better than jumping feet first into darkness. The impending breakdown of the US and world economies is here clarified to the point that you can begin to prepare for this eventuality. And this article gives some of the most practical suggestions on how to prepare. I gained a great deal from this article, and I would like to personally thank Dmitry for sharing it. -DAP

PTECH, 9/11, and USA-SAUDI TERROR, Part I
PROMIS Connections to Cheney Control of 9/11 Attacks Confirmed. by Jamey Hecht, with research assistance by Michael Kane and editorial comment by Michael C. Ruppert.

Wall St. whistleblower Indira Singh tells an insider's story of corruption in the very highest places. Software of incredible power has been funded by confirmed Saudi terrorists and installed on systems in the FAA -- and NORAD, and the FBI, and the White House, and the Navy, and the House of Representatives, and on and on. Its roots are in PROMIS, and its applications range from 9/11 to TIA to a chilling new brand of warfare that may soon be used to cripple Iran.

THE HAITIAN INTIFADA - A story of politics from black and white, high and low. By Stan Goff
Part One: As the tepid, myopic, gatekeeping left is beaten once more by a resurgent but desperate right wing, mass movements are bestirring themselves throughout Latin America and elsewhere. The stakes have not been so high, nor the pressures so intense, since 1968. In this bracing two-part series, FTW military editor Stan Goff turns his attention to the crisis in post-Aristide Haiti and its symbolic drama on the world stage.

"The Privilege of Running Free Deficits Belongs To One Nation Alone" By Stan Goff
If this is to be dealt with in any meaningful way, it means the entire US political and economic establishment will have to be removed, and we will have to commit to at least a whole generation of bottom-up, radical changes in every single facet of our lives. This is the fourth installment of Stan Goff's report on the political economy of US imperialism, a series which started with a critique of American policy toward Iran called "Persian Peril."

Stop Loss
The Republican National Convention was about war. As Zell Miller reminded the faithful, "It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech." This unacknowledged quotation from Miller's fellow Marine, Father Denis O'Brian, brought a gush of adulation from the Grand Old Party, who love to be assured that all good things come from violence. So long as the Americans are on one side, anybody on the other side is to be regarded as the Gestapo wrapped in the Wehrmacht; once the U.S. starts fighting, the enemy is magically transformed into a mighty horde of well-armed Nazis bent on shutting down the New York Times. Miller made clear that if "this marine" (and the other marines) are on a mission, then by God / by definition, that mission is bound to protect civil liberties rather than mock, curtail, and destroy them at home and abroad.

Target Iran - by Dale Allen Pfeiffer
Well folks, we have had our next lotto drawing in the War on Terror, and it appears that we have a winner. Saudi Arabia? Pakistan? No, the next lucky target appears to be Iran. That's right. Given Mr. Bush's increasingly bellicose remarks about Iran, US embarrassment to find out that their first choice to head a new democratic Iraq, Ahmed Chalabi, was an Iranian spy, and Iran's announcement (however much truth there is behind it) that they are now members of the nuclear club, it would appear that our current administration has picked a new target in their ongoing War against Terror.

In this late-breaking story, FTW's Wayne Madsen maps out the lines of force in the current Plame and Chalabi scandals, showing them to be nodes of interpersonal influence and compromise that may soon crack the administration in half. - by Wayne Madsen
The Bush-Cheney campaign is racing toward November. But it isn't only running toward the raw power it loves. It's running away from the punishment it fears. In this late-breaking story, FTW's Wayne Madsen maps out the lines of force in the current Plame and Chalabi scandals, showing them to be nodes of interpersonal influence and compromise that may soon crack the administration in half. The neocons' dark alliance with the right wing of Israeli politics has brought them enormous power. But it's unstable power, vulnerable to legal sanction and due process at the right pressure points. As Watergate proved decades ago, even a dying legal infrastructure can still throw a few jabs once in a while - if the CIA wants it to.

Just when the Bush administration seemed to have figured out that invading Iraq was a mistake, they announce the next stop in their Axis of Evil tour: Persian Peril, Part One. - by Stan Goff
-Iran is the subject of the latest non-diplomatic broadsides, and the media are already buying ringside seats. So what is this thing called "Iran"? Which corporation manufactured it? Or is it one of those pre-American places where people wear funny costumes? These and other questions may or may not be explored in the briefing rooms of the Exceedingly White House. For the rest of us, a closer examination of the history of this ancient and culturally unique regional power may help explain the coming wave of imperial belligerence. FTW's military editor Stan Goff presents a highly useful narrative of Iran's place in modern geopolitics and asks, Is the Bush administration about to commit the fatal imperial error in Iran?

HEARTS AND MINDS AND A WHOLE LOT OF BLOOD: Blinded By Its Smug Ignorance, the War Machine Gets Panicky – by Stan Goff
- Racism and greed may have made the neocons bolder, freeing them from whatever ethical constraints they might have heard of in their travels. But that same rapacity and contempt for human life have also blunted their judgment. The War Department and its private contractors are making a certain class of mistakes that you only make when you know you’re in the wrong, and your army knows it, and your enemy knows it. The Secretary of War has somehow convinced himself that the same bazillion dollar ultragadget that launches a missile through a doorway can also convince all those bereaved Iraqi families to roll out the red carpet. Surely there’s a button for that here somewhere?

THE MERCENARY VARIABLE-OUTSOURCED COMBAT IN IRAQ -- What Really Happened in Fallujah? -- Will Mercenaries Help Uncle Sam Beat a Draft? by Stan Goff
- A retired Special Forces veteran and former military science instructor at West Point tells what really happened in Fallujah. He also describes a trend toward the increasing use of Private Military Contractors or PMCs, a euphemism for mercenaries. Although their numbers will increase in US operations around the world they will not replace enough combat troops to allow the US to avoid a draft. Mercs don't operate in battalion-sized units. What they will do, as a result of a lack of accountability, profit motives fed by tax dollars, and unclear lines of command, is increase battlefield complexity to a point where many new things can and probably will go wrong. As Fallujah tells us, they already have. .

It's possible - and important - to remain on genuine good terms with that afflicted group, though their judgment has predictably and tragically lapsed at a crucial moment. But it must be absolutely clear that the FSC position has no endorsement whatsoever from FTW and activists seeking full exposure of those tragic events. In terms of official positions, the Kean Report and its every adherent must be rejected explicitly - though this does not preclude the maintenance of respectful relations and possible future rapprochements. As for the patterns and manipulations that resulted in the FSC's position, it's all-too-familiar.

But there are also SARS links to the deaths of as many as 10 world-class microbiologists since 9/11. These scientists specialized in techniques necessary for the creation of a hybrid coronavirus.

If they existed, these most devastating weapons would be classified above Top Secret.

As President Bush orders vaccinations of the military, and while HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson publicly acknowledges the dangers of vaccines, the legislation that enables compulsory vaccination of the American people continues to make progress through state legislatures.

AFGHAN OPIUM PRODUCTION DOUBLES
Ever wonder why the markets are doing so well? As FTW has documented for years, with almost $600 billion in drug money being laundered through Wall Street and US banks, the markets should be improving. According to CNN, opium production in Afghanistan is 36 times higher than at the end of Taliban rule. Not every US policy overseas is a failure. Hamid Karzai controls a few square blocks of Kabul. But CIA-controlled warlords control the real estate that really matters.

In this late-breaking story, FTW's Wayne Madsen maps out the lines of force in the current Plame and Chalabi scandals, showing them to be nodes of interpersonal influence and compromise that may soon crack the administration in half. - by Wayne Madsen
The Bush-Cheney campaign is racing toward November. But it isn't only running toward the raw power it loves. It's running away from the punishment it fears. In this late-breaking story, FTW's Wayne Madsen maps out the lines of force in the current Plame and Chalabi scandals, showing them to be nodes of interpersonal influence and compromise that may soon crack the administration in half. The neocons' dark alliance with the right wing of Israeli politics has brought them enormous power. But it's unstable power, vulnerable to legal sanction and due process at the right pressure points. As Watergate proved decades ago, even a dying legal infrastructure can still throw a few jabs once in a while - if the CIA wants it to.

Essay: Postponement of the November Election - by Michael C. Ruppert
The Bush administration has asked for legislation enabling it to postpone the November election as a result of a terror attack. While worded very carefully to suggest that an attack must take place for such a move; I do not see either of the below stories unequivocally state that, if granted, these powers might not also permit elections to be “postponed” on merely a well-publicized threat. Don’t believe the press stories. Read the legislation when it is introduced to see what it says there. If that discretion is included then we are at the edge of an abyss more dangerous than anything we have ever faced.

THE MERCENARY VARIABLE-OUTSOURCED COMBAT IN IRAQ -- What Really Happened in Fallujah? -- Will Mercenaries Help Uncle Sam Beat a Draft? by Stan Goff
- A retired Special Forces veteran and former military science instructor at West Point tells what really happened in Fallujah. He also describes a trend toward the increasing use of Private Military Contractors or PMCs, a euphemism for mercenaries. Although their numbers will increase in US operations around the world they will not replace enough combat troops to allow the US to avoid a draft. Mercs don't operate in battalion-sized units. What they will do, as a result of a lack of accountability, profit motives fed by tax dollars, and unclear lines of command, is increase battlefield complexity to a point where many new things can and probably will go wrong. As Fallujah tells us, they already have. .

Many disturbing unanswered questions have emerged through global Internet media. The official explanation of events does not conform to documented fact.

THE YEAR OF THE LAW AND OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY -- Seemingly Unsolvable Legal Traps Face an Administration Running Out of Wiggle Room – Something Big Will Prevent Saddam From Coming to Trial
by Michael C. Ruppert – The Bush administration has backed itself into several deadly legal corners. The Supreme Court is going to rule in July on the release of secret records of Dick Cheney's energy task force, German courts have thrown out a 9/11 terror case and the only 9/11 conviction ever obtained is about to be overturned. In the meantime, US Appeals court rulings have made it inevitable that 9/11 arrestees like Khalid Shaikh Muhammad and Ramzi bi al-Shibh must come into public view and speak. With an election looming the administration has little choice but to bypass the law in the coming year. Only a major disaster or terrorist attack can achieve that end.

(Admit part of the blame to hide the greater sin) -- Fresh on the heels of the reported capture of Saddam Hussein, the Bush administration, working through a Republican apparatchik heading a virtually useless and spineless commission investigating the attacks, has decided to try to turn the corner on 9/11. It was all just a big mistake that could have been prevented and the Bush administration is protecting screw-ups. Thats what they want America and the world to believe. 9/11 was not an intelligence failure. It was an intelligence success. Everyone who sees this story is urged to react as strongly as possible with emails, calls and letters to CBS, the major press and the White House saying, "THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

PROMIS Connections to Cheney Control of 9/11 Attacks Confirmed. by Jamey Hecht, with research assistance by Michael Kane and editorial comment by Michael C. Ruppert.

Wall St. whistleblower Indira Singh tells an insider's story of corruption in the very highest places. Software of incredible power has been funded by confirmed Saudi terrorists and installed on systems in the FAA -- and NORAD, and the FBI, and the White House, and the Navy, and the House of Representatives, and on and on. Its roots are in PROMIS, and its applications range from 9/11 to TIA to a chilling new brand of warfare that may soon be used to cripple Iran.

In this late-breaking story, FTW's Wayne Madsen maps out the lines of force in the current Plame and Chalabi scandals, showing them to be nodes of interpersonal influence and compromise that may soon crack the administration in half. - by Wayne Madsen
The Bush-Cheney campaign is racing toward November. But it isn't only running toward the raw power it loves. It's running away from the punishment it fears. In this late-breaking story, FTW's Wayne Madsen maps out the lines of force in the current Plame and Chalabi scandals, showing them to be nodes of interpersonal influence and compromise that may soon crack the administration in half. The neocons' dark alliance with the right wing of Israeli politics has brought them enormous power. But it's unstable power, vulnerable to legal sanction and due process at the right pressure points. As Watergate proved decades ago, even a dying legal infrastructure can still throw a few jabs once in a while - if the CIA wants it to.

GRAND JURY WILL SOON ISSUE EXPLOSIVE INDICTMENTS
In "Coup d'Etat," Mike Ruppert showed that Valerie Plame was no ordinary CIA employee; her work was part of at least one productive and well-established information gathering operation. In this latest report on the unfolding Plame investigation, Wayne Madsen shows what a long list of CIA people and projects have been compromised by the leak. John "Karl Rove" Doe and John "Dick Cheney" Doe seem to have no idea what kind of hibernating grizzly bear they've been jabbing at. They'll find out now, because it just woke up.

Mohamed Atta and Rudi Dekkers Seen Together in Venice in Weeks Before Sept. 11 Attack
The official FBI account of Mohammed Attas activities before 9-11 says that Atta left Florida and disappeared months before the attacks. Investigative journalist Dan Hopsicker, who brought you Barry and the Boys and Mohammed Atta and the Venice Flying Circus, reveals that Atta was hanging out in Florida taking cab rides with his buddy, flight school owner Rudi Dekkers, until August of 2001. Yet, according to the FBI, Dekkers barely knew Atta and never socialized with him. More holes, more lies from the government and more reason to look at the Bush administration for answers. Great gumshoe work by the intrepid Hopsicker!

WELLSTONE UPDATES

FTWs investigation into the crash which killed Minnesota Senator Paul Wellstone reveals new information about the crash, the weather and the airplane. Some answers, like when FBI agents from Minneapolis arrived at the crash site, remain elusive. The FAA has also dragged its feet in providing public records. Other new information continues to confirm that weather had nothing to do with the crash which killed eight people and changed the face of American politics. The final NTSB report, however, will have to address what FTW has nailed down.

PROMIS Connections to Cheney Control of 9/11 Attacks Confirmed. by Jamey Hecht, with research assistance by Michael Kane and editorial comment by Michael C. Ruppert.

Wall St. whistleblower Indira Singh tells an insider's story of corruption in the very highest places. Software of incredible power has been funded by confirmed Saudi terrorists and installed on systems in the FAA -- and NORAD, and the FBI, and the White House, and the Navy, and the House of Representatives, and on and on. Its roots are in PROMIS, and its applications range from 9/11 to TIA to a chilling new brand of warfare that may soon be used to cripple Iran.

Part One: As the tepid, myopic, gatekeeping left is beaten once more by a resurgent but desperate right wing, mass movements are bestirring themselves throughout Latin America and elsewhere. The stakes have not been so high, nor the pressures so intense, since 1968. In this bracing two-part series, FTW military editor Stan Goff turns his attention to the crisis in post-Aristide Haiti and its symbolic drama on the world stage.

Popular Culture vs. Bush By Michael Kane
The hundred million Americans who don't vote may not be active citizens, but they certainly are active consumers. And what they consume is mass culture. When a gigantic Hip-Hop star like Eminem releases a video in which he impersonates George W. Bush's demented zone-out in the Booker Elementary classroom, that's a very good thing for the 911 Truth Movement.

We Did It! - by Michael C. Ruppert
The G7 Admit They Have No Idea How Much Oil is Left and That Speculation is Not the Problem. пїЅ Peak Oil is now on the plate пїЅ In his first article since the publication of Crossing the Rubicon, FTW Publisher/Editor Mike Ruppert celebrates a moment and an admission that every Peak Oil activist has been working for. And he throws down a gauntlet to the economists and abiotic oil/alien technology worshippers they will be hard pressed to pick up. The bottom line is: We were right! Now the real work of caring for the human race, and especially its children, begins.

But in this installment, he pulls back the curtain on a more dire prospect: runaway global warming. The kind that once triggered the greatest mass extinction event in the history of the planet.

Unprecedented warnings from the scientific community indicate that the planet's ecosystems are stressed near the point of collapse; business as usual is no longer possible, and we have little time left to respond. Submissions will be published in a book, the profits of which will be used to inform people and possibly provide grants in order to help people prepare for the coming transition.

U.S. handling of Russia seems to have led to Russian assistance for the Iraqi "rebels," and an absurdly incompetent approach to Turkey won the Bush Administration a last-minute setback that may have cost it more than mere delay.

TRIPOD II AND FEMA
Lack of NORAD Response on 9/11 Explained – by Michael C. Ruppert

- The "Tripod II," joint New York City-Department of Justice biowarfare exercise, scheduled for Sept 12th 2001 at New York's Pier 29, and revealed in testimony by former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani at the 9/11 Commission, may become one of the single most important disclosures of 9/11. I salute the work done by INN Global Free Press at http://inn.globalfreepress.com. But the "FEMA-Kennedy arrived in NY on Sept. 10th" myth is pure poison and absolutely incorrect. It originated from a CBS News interview conducted by Dan Rather shortly after the attacks. That interview, and the claim that it implies prior knowledge on the part of the Massachusetts FEMA Task Force, has been linked on multiple web sites and postings with Tripod and other 9/11 wargames. This erroneous story is dangerously useful for the cover-up, and it's time to give it the axe.

From The Wilderness today ran a full-page ad in the front section of The Washington Post intended to educate the American people, support heroic leaders and promote a number of independent media outlets which have made important contributions since 9/11. The ad was the direct result of a donation from a subscriber who had recently viewed FTW Publisher Mike Ruppert's video "The Truth and Lies of 9-11".  The ad that ran today was actually a second version, the text of which had to be changed after the first version apparently caused some nervousness in Washington.

THE DRAFT     

5/25/05
BACK-DOOR LAW, BACK-DOOR DRAFT - by Stan Goff
Stan Goff shows that Stop-Loss is utterly illegal - on multiple grounds. And what are we fighting for? Freedom! Here's how this shocking article ends: "Meanwhile, head down to the local recruiting station with this information in hand, and deny each station at least four recruits a month. That is how we fight back right now."

Refugees & Extradition - by Mike Kane

FAYETTEVILLE: An Assessment Of Military Resistance - by Stan Goff
What can end the war in Iraq? Certainly not some decisive U.S. "victory." And without a miraculous change in the geopolitical landscape, Iraqis will have little reason to tolerate the American occupation for the foreseeable future. The Iraqi Shia majority may have deep wounds left from the Iran-Iraq War of twenty years ago, but if the boots of the infidel are causing even more pain, a Muslim neighbor is a better provisional ally than the latest American puppet. Until the oil gushes (and donkeys fly), the Pentagon will insist upon "staying the course." What can end the war in Iraq?

Stop Loss
The Republican National Convention was about war. As Zell Miller reminded the faithful, "It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech." This unacknowledged quotation from Miller's fellow Marine, Father Denis O'Brian, brought a gush of adulation from the Grand Old Party, who love to be assured that all good things come from violence. So long as the Americans are on one side, anybody on the other side is to be regarded as the Gestapo wrapped in the Wehrmacht; once the U.S. starts fighting, the enemy is magically transformed into a mighty horde of well-armed Nazis bent on shutting down the New York Times. Miller made clear that if "this marine" (and the other marines) are on a mission, then by God / by definition, that mission is bound to protect civil liberties rather than mock, curtail, and destroy them at home and abroad.

A CALL FOR ACTION – by Dale Allen Pfeiffer
-FTW Science Editor Dale Allen Pfeiffer, Author of The End of The Oil Age, solicits contributions to a project aimed at answering this question: What measures can people of limited means undertake to ease their transition into a post-petroleum world? Unprecedented warnings from the scientific community indicate that the planet's ecosystems are stressed near the point of collapse; business as usual is no longer possible, and we have little time left to respond. Submissions will be published in a book, the profits of which will be used to inform people and possibly provide grants in order to help people prepare for the coming transition.

Subscriber Buys FTW Full Page Ad in The Washington Post

Leaked Copy May Have Forced Resignation of Army Secretary. From The Wilderness today ran a full-page ad in the front section of The Washington Post intended to educate the American people, support heroic leaders and promote a number of independent media outlets which have made important contributions since 9/11. The ad was the direct result of a donation from a subscriber who had recently viewed FTW Publisher Mike Ruppert's video "The Truth and Lies of 9-11".  The ad that ran today was actually a second version, the text of which had to be changed after the first version apparently caused some nervousness in Washington.
