Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

Wednesday 11th February 2015


Bit of a short one this week. Monday my hard drive in the old server died. At the same time I could not access the external hard drive on which I had been doing backups. Talk about a “perfect storm”! Several reboots of the server failed to restore life, where once there was.

So I took the hard drive out, blew some dust out of the bits I could see and decided it would work. Put it back in and it did! So my son-in-law, Rene and I have been busily copying files to the new server I bought some time ago in preparation for the day this would happen. Bit behind but not the catastrophe it could have been.

If you are not backing up your data regularly, call Rene on 0402 936 861 and he’ll walk you through your options.

Here is your weekly dose of whatever you care to take from it from me!

The Saudi role in 9/11, the story that won't go away

A 4,000-page court filing on 3 February by lawyers for the 9/11 families, is putting a renewed spotlight on the role of Saudi Arabia in sponsoring the 9/11 attacks, and is increasing the pressure for release of the censored 28 pages from the Congressional Joint Inquiry.

Starting Tuesday evening, coverage of the explosive filings spread from the New York Times and CNN through the news media internationally and domestically. Importantly, the filings contained affidavits from two former 9/11 Commissioners, and from former Senate Intelligence Commission chairman Bob Graham, debunking Saudi claims that they were exonerated by the 9/11 Commission, and with 9/11 Commission member John Lehman calling for release of the 28 pages.

In 2013-14, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Saudi High Commission for Relief of Bosnia & Herzegovina (SHC), were reinstated as defendants by actions of the U.S. Appeals Court in New York and the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Kingdom and the SHC are now desperately trying to get themselves dismissed again. A blockbuster pleading filed last September, states that the success of the 9/11 attacks “was made possible by the lavish sponsorship Al-Qaeda received from its material sponsors, including the Kingdom and SHC, over more than a decade leading up to 11 September 2001.” It not only contains detailed evidence of how Saudi-sponsored “charities” financed Al-Qaeda in the years leading up the 9/11 attacks, but it also describes—in detail—how Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud (now King Salman), was put in charge of the SHC and how he personally directed the arming and financing of Al-Qaeda during the 1990s.

One of the exhibits attached to Monday’s filing, is a copy of the “Matrix of Threat Indicators” used by the U.S. military at Guantanamo. According to an affidavit by attorney Sean Carter, one of the lawyers for the 9/11 families, The Matrix of Threat Indicators identifies the ’Saudi High Commission for Relief’ as one of the organisations within a list of ’terrorist and terrorist support entities’ and indicates that ’through associations with these groups and organisations, a detainee may have provided support to Al-Qaeda or the Taliban, or engaged in hostilities against U.S. or Coalition forces. A number of other exhibits also deal with the role of the Salman-run SHC in financing and arming Al-Qaeda.

Leading the news coverage of Monday’s filing, is the more than one hundred pages of sworn testimony by would-be hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui, describing how wealthy Saudis and members of the Saudi royal family provided financial support to him and other terrorists in the late 1990s.“

Although Moussaoui was declared mentally-ill by his own lawyers in his 2006 trial in Alexandria, Va., and his public behaviour was wild and erratic, nonetheless 9/11 families’ attorney Sean Carter told the New York Times that his impression during the taking of Moussaoui’s deposition was that Moussaoui “was of completely sound mind—focused and thoughtful.”

Among those named by Moussaoui in his deposition were former Saudi intelligence head Prince Turki bin-Faisal and Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. who has previously been identified as providing support to the San Diego hijackers, and whom Executive Intelligence Review put in the center of the British-Saudi Al Yamamah terrorist-funding slush fund.

Whatever the ultimate value of Moussaoui’s testimony turns out to be, the furor surrounding it is shining a bright light on the already-established, highly-credible mountains of evidence of Saudi sponsorship of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and is giving added momentum to the demands for release of the 28 pages.

How To Engineer a Society to Fail

It is easy to make a failure of a person and a society, encourage and reward dependence. Penalise (tax) the producers more and more to support the indigent. Two very simple principles and bingo, you have yourself a failed society. As went Rome, so goes America.

Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
