From The Wilderness has obtained the January 17 deposition of retired Joint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Thomas Moorer taken in connection with a “batch” of civil suits filed in the aftermath of 1997 and 1998 CNN reports relating to a series of 1970 CIA directed missions known as “Tailwind.” Those missions, as originally, and apparently accurately, reported by CNN involved the use of the poison nerve gas Sarin to kill American defectors in Laos. The Moorer deposition not only confirms all of the aspects of the original CNN broadcast, it also suggests that former CNN Producers April Oliver and Jack Smith may have actually understated the extent of Sarin Gas use by U.S. forces under CIA control during the Vietnam war.

World can thank Nazis for invention of sarin
By H.P. Albarelli Jr. and Ran Daniel, 2013

Over the past several months the world has witnessed the heinous and lethal effects of sarin gas being deployed in Syria, where an estimated 1,500 people died from its effects in just one attack on the outskirts of Damascus. Yet virtually unknown is the long history of this deadly chemical compound, including its roots entangled with Nazi Germany and the United States’ acquisition and exploitation.

Sarin was invented in 1938 in Germany by I.G. Farben company chemists […]. Quickly found to be a lethal nerve agent to humans, the compound was further refined and then named in honor of its developers: Gerhard Schrader, Otto Ambros, Franz Ritter and H.J. Van der Linde. (more…)

What do the 1992 crash of El Al Flt 1862 and 9/11 have in common?
From WTC Demolition, by Keenan, 2009-10-10

October 4, 2009 marked the 17th anniversary of the worst air disaster in Dutch history. It also was the date of the beginning of one of the largest scandals and cover-ups in the history of the Dutch government and it involved Israel, Mossad, the US, El Al, secret and illegal chemical weapons transfers, unconfirmed allegations of weapons-grade plutonium, and as many as 2,000 local residents and firemen eventually reporting health complaints they believe were caused by the crash. Many reported loss of hair in the weeks after the crash, a sign of radiation disease.

Oh, and what was the US doing sending massive amounts of WMD’s to the Middle East? So, the US has long been concerned about keeping Weapons of Mass Destruction out of the Middle East – MY ASS!

Remember this story when you next hear some cable news pundit pontificating about why we have to bomb those nasty people in the Middle East. (more…)

Uranium market
From Wikipedia

The uranium market, like all commodity markets, has a history of volatility, moving not only with the standard forces of supply and demand, but also to whims of geopolitics. It has also evolved particularities of its own in response to the unique nature and use of this material.

Historically, uranium has been mined in countries willing to export, including Australia and Canada. However, countries now responsible for more than 30% of the world’s uranium production include Kazakhstan, Namibia, Niger, and Uzbekistan.

Uranium from mining is used almost entirely as fuel for nuclear power plants. Following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, the global uranium market remains depressed, with the uranium price falling more than 50%, declining share values, and reduced profitability of uranium producers since March 2011. As a result, uranium companies worldwide are reducing capacity, closing operations and deferring new production. (more…)

A total of 43 people were killed, consisting of the plane’s crew of three and a non-revenue passenger in a jump seat, plus 39 persons on the ground. Many more were injured.

The aircraft, a Boeing 747-258F, registration 4X-AXG, was traveling from New York to Tel Aviv and made a stopover at Schiphol. During the flight from New York to Schiphol, three issues were noted:

  • fluctuations in the autopilot speed regulation,
  • problems with the shortwave radio, and
  • fluctuations in the voltage of engine number three.

The jet landed at Schiphol at 2:31 pm local time. New cargo was loaded into the plane; the cargo had been (more…)
