SAME U.S. COUNTER-REVOLUTIONARY GLOBAL AGENDA, DESPERATE NEW TACTICS
“The greatest threat now is ‘a 9/11’ with a group of terrorists armed not with airline tickets and box cutters, but with a nuclear weapon in the middle of one of our cities."

Zbigniew Brzezinski CULTURAL DOMINATION--HEGEMONY OF A NEW TYPE

https://archive.org/stream/ZbigniewBrzezinskiTheGrandChessboard_201611/
Cultural domination has been an underappreciated facet of American global power....As the imitation of American ways gradually pervades the world, it creates a more congenial setting for the exercise of the indirect and seemingly consensual American hegemony. And as in the case of the domestic American system, that hegemony involves a complex structure of interlocking institutions and procedures, designed to generate consensus and obscure asymmetries in power and influence.

Strategic Communications "News": Pimps Czar Chertoff's terrorr "hunch"
Tuesday, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told The Chicago Tribune editorial board in his discussion about terrorists that he had a "gut feeling" about a new period of increased risk... "We worry they are rebuilding their activities....The threat coming out of there is very real, even if there aren't a lot of specifics attached to it," one of the officials said.... Chertoff said he is convinced terrorists are regrouping...urged Americans to be watchful for suspicious activities in the wake of recent terror incidents in England and Scotland...

White House Issues September 11 Guidelines
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/30/us/politics/30terror.html
...The White House has quietly disseminated two sets of documents. One framed for overseas allies and their citizens was sent to American embassies and consulates around the globe. The other for Americans here underscores the importance of national service and what the government has done to prevent another major attack in the United States...White House officials adopted the communications documents to shape public events and official statements.. messages designed for two very important, but very different audiences on a day when the world’s attention will be focused on President Obama, his leadership team and his nation.
The guidelines list themes to underscore and what tone to set. Officials are instructed to memorialize those who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and thank those in the military, law enforcement, intelligence or homeland security for their contributions since. “A chief goal of our communications is to present a positive, forward-looking narrative”...
One significant new theme is in both sets of documents: Government officials are to warn Americans must be prepared for another attack — and must, in response, be resilient in recovering from the loss.... “While we must never forget those we lost, we must do more than simply remember them —we must sustain our resilience and remain united to prevent new attacks and new victims.”...The guidelines say the absence of Al Qaeda playing any significant role in the “Arab Spring” uprisings against longtime autocrats in the Middle East and North Africa should be cited as evidence that Bin Laden’s organization “represents the past,” while peaceful street protesters in Egypt and Tunisia “represent the future.” Left unsaid was that many of the deposed leaders were close American allies and partners in counterterrorism operations....
issued to all federal agencies...Copies of the internal documents were provided to The New York Times by officials in several agencies involved in planning the commemorations.

Phillip D. Zelikow...911 Myth Maker
In 1998, Zelikow wrote “Catastrophic Terrorism” imagining "the transformative event" three years before 9/11. Here are Zelikow's 1998 words;

9/11 Commission controversy
NBC News analysis of the 9/11 Commission’s Final Report and interviews with Commission staffers and current and former U.S. intelligence officials.
January 30, 2008 By Robert Windrem and Victor Limjoco http://deepbackground.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2008/01/30/624314.aspx
The NBC News analysis shows that more than one quarter of all footnotes in the 9/11 Report refer to CIA interrogations of [ALLEGED] al-Qaida operatives who were subjected to the now-controversial interrogation techniques.... According to both current and former senior U.S. intelligence officials, the operatives cited by the Commission were subjected to the harshest of the CIA’s methods, the "enhanced interrogation techniques." In fact, information derived from the interrogations is central to the Report’s most critical chapters, those on the planning and execution of the attacks. The analysis also shows - and agency and commission staffers concur - there was a separate, second round of interrogations in early 2004, done specifically to answer new questions from the Commission.
"We were not aware but guessed, that things like that were going on," Philip Zelikow, the 9/11 Commission executive director, told NBC News. "We were wary…we tried to find different sources to enhance our credibility....Zelikow admits "quite a bit, if not most" of its information on the 9/11 conspiracy "did come from the interrogations."
" Zelikow picks the areas of investigation, briefing materials, topics for hearings, witnesses, and lines of witness questioning...In effect, he sets the agenda and runs the investigation."...
Pentagon psychological operations (psy-ops) reflect the theories of former State Dept official, Philip Zelikow: that the creation and perpetuation of ‘public myths’ or ‘public presumptions’... e.g. public political consciousness ... is shaped by “searing events” which help move the public in a desired political direction.
Zelikow's area of academic expertise is the creation and management of "public myths" or "public presumptions" ...as Zelikow noted... "contemporary" history is "defined functionally by those critical people and events that go into forming the public's presumptions about its immediate past. The idea of 'public presumption' is akin to William McNeill's notion of 'public myth' but without the negative implication sometimes invoked by the word 'myth.' Such presumptions are beliefs (1) thought to be true ( not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community."...
Zelikow has also written about terrorism and national security... In the November-December 1998 issue of Foreign Affairs, he co-authored an article entitled "Catastrophic Terrorism,"

Catastrophic Terrorism: Elements of a National Policy

An article based on this report will be published in the journal Foreign Affairs in the November/December 1998 issue.
...Foreword: Preventive Defense
Through more than four decades of Cold War, American national security strategy was difficult to implement but easy to understand. America was set on a clear course to contain Soviet expansionism anywhere in the world, all the while building a formidable arsenal of nuclear weapons to deter the Soviet Union from using military force against it or its allies. Now, with the end of the Cold War, the underlying rationale for that strategy—the threat from the Soviet Union—has disappeared. What strategy should replace it? Much depends on finding the correct answer to this question....
The result is a world today seemingly without a major threat to the United States, and the U.S. is now enjoying a period of peace and influence as never before. But while this situation is to be savored by the public, foreign policy and defense leaders should not be complacent. This period of an absence of threat challenges these leaders to find the vision and foresight to act strategically, even when events and imminent threats do not compel them to do so.
To understand the dangers and opportunities that will define our nation’s strategy in the new era, we must see the post-Cold War world the way George Marshall looked upon Europe after World War II, and return to prevention...
Preventive Defense defense strategy for the United States in the post-Cold War Era... stresses the need to anticipate security dangers...The foci of Preventive Defense are: proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, catastrophic terrorism, "loose nukes" and other military technology from the former Soviet Union, Russia’s post-Cold War security identity, and the peaceful rise of China.
Preventive Defense is the most important mission of national security leaders and of the defense establishment. They must dedicate themselves to Preventive Defense while they deter lesser but existing threats—in Iraq and North Korea—and conduct peacekeeping and humanitarian missions—in Bosnia, Haiti, Rwanda, and so on—where aggression occurs but where American vital interests are not directly threatened.

This report is the sixth in a series of Preventive Defense Project reports on key applications of Preventive Defense in the Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group and Visions of Governance for the Twenty-First Century...
This report is a product of the Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group, a nine-month long collaboration of faculty from Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, and the University of Virginia. The Group involves experts on national security, terrorism, intelligence, law enforcement, constitutional law, technologies of Catastrophic Terrorism and defenses against them, and government organization and management. The Group is co-chaired by Ashton B. Carter and John M. Deutch, and the project director is Philip D. Zelikow. Organized by the Stanford-Harvard Preventive Defense Project, the work of the Study Group is part of the Kennedy School of Government’s "Visions of Governance for the Twenty-First Century" project, directed by Dean *Joseph S. Nye, Jr. and Elaine Kamarck.

US Nuclear Weapons Spending Topped $52 Billion in 2008:
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace report http://carnegieendowment.org/publications/index.cfm
The United States has never tracked nuclear weapons-related spending comprehensively, hindering effective oversight and weighing of priorities in nuclear security policy... impairs balancing of priorities and fosters the impression America is more interested in preserving and upgrading its nuclear arsenal than reducing and eliminating threats of nuclear proliferation and limited nuclear or radiological attack. Because classified expenditures and other relevant costs are omitted from the analysis, total actual spending is significantly higher: Key Conclusions [...]

"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has earned my contempt....given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."

"Eurasia is the world’s axial supercontinent. A power that dominated Eurasia would exercise decisive influence over ... Western Europe and East Asia. A glance at the map also suggests a country dominant in Eurasia would almost automatically control the Middle East and Africa ... What happens with the distribution of power on the Eurasian landmass will be of decisive importance to America’s global primacy and historical legacy."

Nine-Eleven, Manna from Heaven
9/11 2006 by Anwaar Hussain, http://www.airdance.proboards50.com/index.cgi?board=anwrart&action=displ...
This 9/11, as the swirling ashes of the twin towers continue to fall far and wide, it will be full five years since the start of American Inquisition. 9/11.. has turned out to be Manna from Heaven for the flag bearers of American Inquisition. This cabal is not a group of ragtag carpetbaggers. They are the inheritors of a tradition from their ilk of bygone years. In the hunt for new lands for their Imperial masters, their ideological forefathers practiced their art and craft for centuries. Waiting just beyond the circle of light at the scent of new opportunities like hyenas at the stench of rotting carcasses at the dead of the night.
As far back as 1492, Christopher Columbus the points man for the Spanish Inquisition export into foreign lands, that most barbarous periods in all of human history, was funded by private investors because the royal monarchs were broke from their Granada campaign against the Muslims of Spain. The investors promised, but never fulfilled, 10 percent of all the revenues from the new lands in perpetuity to Columbus...
Five years back to date, airline jets appeared in the cobalt blue New York Skies as if sent by the gods above. Within minutes they had bumped through tall wonders of human achievements reducing them and their occupants to a tangled mass of steel, concrete and human flesh. While the world stood aghast and numb from the pain of the victims and the sheer scale of the crime, in some dark unlit corners of America, a cabal of malicious, hateful and warmongering few soaked themselves in this Manna from Heaven...had firmly catapulted America on a ceaseless warpath not of self defense, but of fear, insecurity, suspicion, hatred, anger, reprisal and blind, jingoistic patriotism that continues to take its toll on humanity.... Manuel Valenzuela, in his profound essay ‘Gods of War, Gods of Greed and Profiteers of Misery’, says;
“It was on that day the misery of millions became the fortune of a few thousand...on that day the MIC and the Corporate Leviathan wrested ultimate control from the people of the world, usurping global power and forever altering the future of humanity. Our 9/11 became their Pearl Harbor.. needed to unleash already predetermined plans to expand power and control on a now easily manipulated and mobilized citizenry... now free to release their hounds of war, conquest, greed and violence upon the rest of civilization.” [...]

...The heresy of heresies was common sense... after all, how do we know that two and two make four? Or that the force of gravity works? Or that the past is unchangeable? If both the past and the external world exist only in the mind, and if the mind itself is controllable what then?... The solid world exists, its laws do not change. Stones are hard, water is wet, objects unsupported fall towards the earth's centre... Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four...
