Ya know this is all about a turf battle between CIA (and the rest of the civilian government) which is constantly fomenting wars (and now has their own para-military, technology and drones) and the US military which is now tired of being expected to stupidly follow the orders of a corrupt government and fight and die for criminals.

Benghazi was another 9/11 false flag event designed to enflame the public by murdering Stevens and in the process transferring missiles held in the CIA base there to the Libyan fighters and then to the "so called" Syrian rebels (who are primarily Libyan mercenaries).

Petraeus and the other fired generals (such as the head of Africom) got pissed at promising that they would support the seals who went in support of the CIA base and then having the State Department refuse to allow the gun ships and rapid deployment forces circling in the area to support the seals. The generals could no longer be trusted to have their troops die at the whim of the CIA and so new generals had to be appointed who can be trusted to let the sons and daughters of Americans die in false flag attacks set up by the CIA.

How would you like to be a judge and receive letters in support of one petitioner over another from two of the most powerful men in the world, men who could with the snap of a finger disappear you or kill you?  Could you be impartial?  Isn’t it reassuring to know that your fate rests on the whims of a courtesan?   I am hearing that the Kelly’s are two years behind in their mortgage and yet they are hiring orchestras to play for the generals.  Something is rotten in Denmark.

It is, however, slightly reassuring that the judge ignored the letters.

this should not be news

Google acknowledges that it does receive requests from government agencies around the world to "provide information about users of our services and products," according to a Google policy statement posted online.

The company scrutinizes such request to make sure it complies with local laws, and "may refuse to produce information or try to narrow the request."

Of all the free webmail services, Google collects and correlates the most data from users of its free Gmail service, including IP addresses, key words in e-mail text and information from search queries and web page visits, said Caitlin Johanson, security strategist at CORE Security.

Guys, holy shit, look who the 'psychologically unstable twin sister' was married to, the guy on the other end of the custody battle that the Generals wrote the kind notes against:



Grayson P. Wolfe

Grayson Wolfe is a Partner at Akkadian. He previously served as Director of Broader Middle East Initiatives and Iraqi Reconstruction and Special Assistant to the Chief Operating Officer at the Export-Import Bank of the United States. He was appointed to the bank by President Bush in June 2002. Between January and August 2004, Wolfe served as Manager of the Private Sector Development Office of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Baghdad, Iraq. In this capacity he was directly responsible for implementing a wide range of initiatives to attract foreign direct investment and provide financing to Iraqi companies. During this time, Wolfe worked extensively on the ground with senior Iraqi and Kurdish officials, and with the Ministries of Finance, Trade and Oil.

From 2001 to 2002 Wolfe worked as an attorney for the law firm of Fleischman and Walsh, LLP, where he represented clients engaged in Homeland Security, Telecommunications and Intellectual Property matters. He served as a member of a seven-person team that worked with the North American Railroads and Chlorine Chemical Industries to develop a National Homeland Security Risk Analysis and Management Plan. This plan was adopted by the Class I Freight Railroad CEOs on Dec 6, 2001. Wolfe served as Legislative Director and Counsel for members of Congress from 1999-2002. He has also served in numerous positions in presidential, federal and state political campaigns. Before this, he worked for Citicorp in Poland focusing on emerging markets and franchise development opportunities in Central and Eastern European countries.

I suppose it is, in this Empire of Psychopaths...just saying that this person appears to have been in the very center, i.e. the CPA manager working with the Ministries of Oil and Finance....doing God's work:

With the approach of the June 30 handover, however, reports suggest that Iraq’s oil revenues have been mismanaged and that untold millions have been siphoned off into unregulated “slush funds.”

According to CPA accounting, a total cash inflow of more than $20.24 billion filled the DFI since it was created on May 28, 2003. Although nearly all of the “development” funds came from Iraqi oil exports, the Central Bank of Iraq had only $216 million in its DFI account on June 20.

A simple spread sheet of 35 rows lists how more than $11.3 billion of the fund had been disbursed by the CPA. The sheet reveals that the “Commanders Emergency Response Program” received $391 million of Iraqi money, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers got another $367 million, and the CPA Front Office got $2.8 million etc. Details, dates and specifics are not provided.

There has been no monitoring or independent auditing of the fund until April 2004. Until that time disagreements between the CPA and the International Advisory and Monitoring Board (IAMB), an oversight body set up by the UN Security Council, prevented any outside audit of the DFI.

In April, the accounting firm KPMG began a UN-man dated audit of the fund, which it hopes to complete by June 30. In their first interim report, KPMG auditors said they had “encountered resistance from CPA staff” and that the DFI is “open to fraudulent acts.”

A member of the former Iraqi Governing Council told The Financial Times, “If the auditors don’t finish by June 30, they never will, because the CPA staff are going home.”

When the U.S.-appointed temporary Iraqi government takes over on July 1, however, it will be bound by a June 8 UN Security Council resolution to honor the obligations and contracts passed down by the CPA’s spending arm, the Program Review Board (PRB).

After what is described as “a last-minute spending spree” by the CPA, it now appears that the Iraqi interim government will have very little money left to use.

The largest Iraqi recipients of DFI money have been the Ministry of Finance ($7.47 billion) and the Ministry of Oil ($2 billion). There is, however, no recorded disbursement of funds to the Ministry of Health.

This apparently troubled Yusaf Samiullah, the British government’s representative on the PRB, who, according to the minutes of the board’s May 15 meeting, asked: If given the opportunity to revise the 2004 budget, would the disbursements “include other areas such as health and education”?

The Real Housewives of Tampa -- really.  Reality TV in the form of  FOXNEWS and it all started because "the other woman" just had to send an email to one of the other General's groupies; and one email leads to another....  Maybe the FBI needs to be capped at one level of investigation removed from the target of their warrant.  Every layer they go through is one layer closer to me... lol ;)

It's possible this is just what it superficially appears to be, but a closer look might offer other alternatives, albeit one at least purely political, the other more mysterious.

Jill Kelly, the "social liaison" to the HQ base of the Joint Special Operations Command, initiates an FBI investigation, with the perpetrator of those emails ostensibly Ms. Broadwell, with a background (early on) in American intelligence.

The CIA director, who had journeyed to Benghazi several weeks prior on a fact-finding mission, is scheduled to testify before congress in just several days, but now won't be required to due to what's come to light.

Instead, the former Bush White House CIA aide during 9/11, Acting Director Morrell, will now be testifying.

One thing is for certain, the FBI notified the White House sometime on the day of the presidential election (would it be after they felt assured that Obama would win???), thus ensuring the end of Petraeus' political career, and probable future chance as a presidential candidate in 2016.

Of course, the FBI director is Robert Mueller III, who appears in at least three recent books published, each extolling his pristine and pure character -- and who has been secretly hinted as a future presidential candidate in 2016?

(Certainly, if Romney had won, he would probably have replaced Petraeus at the CIA.)

To repeat the pedigree of Robert Mueller III:  first appointed to chief of the DOJ's criminal division when that BCCI investigation was getting might close to the Bush #1 White House, and is also the grandnephew of Richard Bissell -- one of the three top CIA guys who were fired by Kennedy prior to President Kennedy's assassination.

Mueller's wife is the granddaughter of Gen. Cabell, number two of the three top CIA guys fired by JFK prior to his assassination.

Probably good to keep these facts in mind at this time, huh?

My my, did the CIA reshuffle after Colby under Bush make it into a total matrix of people who fought their earlier battles with the JFk clique. 

Pax Americana has its feuds, like MArius-Sulla, Caesar-Pompey, Anthony- Augustus.

Will there be a sequel to JFK-Bush saga and could it lead to a general wearing the purple robe of Potus? 

Ike was no Caesar, more Scipio Africanus. 

I always thought that  the Kennedy family tragedy reflected back to the Gracchi of Rome, social Oligarchs, who were murdered by the Opimates clique of Conservatives, that started off the social wars and led to Marius vs Sulla civil war. By that analogy there is much room for recurrent Demo-Repub divide in the US oligarchy as we go further down this narrow road to despotism.

Shocker, once again WB7 focusing on the offical distraction rather than the actual story in Bhenghazi. They knew about this well before he was put in the CIA, blackmailing him to go along on arming Al Qaida, running guns/missiles all over the ME. This is classic Axelrod stuff here, apparently Clapper had the sit-down with him advising him to step down before hearings commenced on Bhengazi, he didn't go along... boom. As Valerie Jarrett said a few days before election, anyone not on board will be taken out.
