“The National Security Agency’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide. If a dictator ever took over, the N.S.A. could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.” -Senator Frank Church

Other FBI agents working in various parts of the country want to know why in 1992 an investigation of James R. Bath.... a FinCEN investigation for influence peddling for the Saudi royal family.... found that investigation disappear during the Bush/Clinton election? James R. Bath, George W. Bush's roommate during his Texas National Guard days, was featured in Michael Moore film, Fahrenheit 911. They also are asking "why was the Houston Gulf Manor Airport near the NASA Space Center razed after 911 when it had been purchased by and for the Bin Laden's through Bath and his close associate, the Saudi royal family's banker, Khalid Bin Mahfouz?
Moore interviewed Craig Unger author of House of Bush, House of Saud and retired FBI agent Jack Cloonan who raised the same issues as Coleen Rowley: "Yes," said Cloonan, "an investigator would not want these people to have left. … I think in the case of the bin Laden family I think it would have been prudent: hand the subpoenas out, have them come in, get on the record. Get on the record."
"George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and others insisted that Osama Bin Laden was the lone 'bad apple' in the Saudi royal household, but after Al Qaeda was spawned in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood which most CIA agents agree was itself created to do the CIA's dirty work while Al Qaeda was formed to help fight the Russians in Afghanistan, Al Qaeda was ejected from Egypt, just as the moderate Egyptians are now doing to the Muslim Brotherhood following the Arab Spring. Al Qaeda went to Syria where Assad ejected them, too. They ended up domiciled in Saudi Arabia. Fifteen of the nineteen 911 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia and not one was from Iraq and we invade Iraq? Go figure," said Smedley Darlington Butler Martin.
We did. Richard Perle, arguing that 25% of the Saudis are wealthy but unemployed, but have imported 7 million foreign workers, some of whom worked under slave conditions, provided the reason for the corrupting influence of Saudi power: Oil. Perle noted in a January 20, 2004 interview with Brian Lamb that while the world consumed 90 million barrels of oil a day in 2003 and Saudis produced only about 7 million barrels a day, but the Saudis extracted it for pennies a barrels while the rest of the world paid real money for exploration and extraction. Perle concluded wrongly that oil independence would do no good. Certainly it would muzzle the Saudis and their American minions. It was in this context that the NSA's influence expanded under the Bush and Bush influenced administrations. Author and former Hoover Institute member, Anthony Sutton has argued that the Bush family is part of a larger international cartel that dates its American cell to 1833. It is within this milieu that Rowley and the others have courageously come forward including....
Martin and Carver had previously leveled their criticism of David Baldacci for his appearance on National Public Radio during which he said that Snowden would die friendless and fade to black. Their comments appeared in an article that indicates that Baldacci has "faded to yellow".
Meanwhile, Citizens for NPR Accountability are calling for an investigation into the way that NPR put together the Baldacci story. "When you see that the NPR board of directors has been loaded with top members of the U.S. Information Agency, you have to wonder if it is anything other than just another shill for the N.S.A.," said CNPRA's founder, Buster "Pops" A. Ganda.
