United States Pentagon and Department of Defense

NSA Director Keith Alexander lied to the Congressional  House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).  Why?

  •  The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to listen to domestic phone calls, a participant in the briefing said.
  • Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed on Thursday that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told that the contents of a phone call could be accessed “simply based on an analyst deciding that.”
  • If the NSA wants “to listen to the phone,” an analyst’s decision is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required, Nadler said he learned. “I was rather startled,” said Nadler, an attorney and congressman who serves on the House Judiciary committee.
  • Because the same legal standards that apply to phone calls also apply to e-mail messages, text messages, and instant messages, being able to listen to phone calls would mean the NSA analysts could also access the contents of Internet communications without going before a court and seeking approval.

Congressional oversight committees or not the U.S. Department of Defense ‘s National Security Agency has determined that it has the right to spy on U.S. citizens without due process of law and with the consent of the Department of Justice and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) courts.

This violates the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment and Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment.

  •  Fourth Amendment

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

  • Fourteenth Amendment Section 1.

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

While Federal Intelligence and Law Enforcement Agencies lie to Congressional Oversight Committees and American citizens, Edward Snowden continues to reveal accurate and incriminating allegations against  the United States Federal Government.

As charges of espionage are being leveled against Edward Snowden one has to wonder why charges of treason should not be leveled against the heads of the NSA, DOD, DIA, Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Security Advisor.

National Security Agency – America’s Orwellian Big Brother

“The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Be Careful of Your Communications and Web Content)”

If Big Brother isn’t watching you now, they will be soon! The National Security Agency, an agency of the United States Department of Defense, is planning on building the largest Federal Spy Center in the United States. The NSA is the sister spy organization to the Defense Intelligence Agency or DIA of the Department of Defense. Legally, neither organization has the right to spy domestically under the Constitution of the United States of America and since the first National Security Act became effective on September 18, 1947, (signed on July 26, 1947, only 20 days after the Roswell UFO Incident).

“The National Security Act of 1947 (Pub.L. 80-253, 61 Stat. 495, codified at 50 U.S.C.ch.15) was an Act of Congress signed by PresidentTruman on 26 July 1947, which realigned and reorganized the U.S. Armed Forcesforeign policy, and Intelligence Community apparatus in the aftermath of World War II. The majority of the provisions of the Act took effect on September 18, 1947, the day after the Senate confirmed James Forrestal as the first Secretary of Defense. His power was extremely limited and it was difficult for him to exercise the authority to make his office effective. This was later changed in the amendment to the act in 1949, creating what was to be the Department of Defense.”

You are not only being outsourced by your country, but if Big Brother (the NSA) isn’t watching you now they soon will be. As the FBI issues Request for Proposals for software to spy on Social Media web sites, the NSA plans on spying on the world using all electronic media, both nationally and internationally, at their disposal.

This is in addition to the NSA’s high-resolution satellite video, audio, and electronic surveillance. The NSA and other U.S. Government Agencies, (including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Fire Arms, & Explosives (BATFE or commonly known as the ATF), Department of Homeland Security (DHS)Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE),  U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the United States Secret Service, the United States Marshals ServiceNational Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Council (NSC)), are using aerial surveillance drones of every make and model, both military and private industrial, in conjunction with State, County, and Municipal Law Enforcement assets to spy on United States private citizens without due process of law as specified in the United States Constitution.

As a member of the US Department of Defense the NSA has no legal right to spy on US citizens. NSA national and inter-national surveillance will be expanded with the building and implementation of this new ultra-modern and expansive data center. The NSA will conduct their surveillance without accountability to the Department of Homeland Security nor does it seem that the Department of Justice will interfere with NSA operations.

With the building of the new NSA super data center facility they will be able to tap into all other United States Federal, State, Territorial, County, and Municipal surveillance technology to coordinate their Orwellian Policy. They will also be able to tap into foreign intelligence and  law enforcement assets.

As a member of the U.S. Department of Defense the NSA has no legal right to spy on US citizens. NSA national and international surveillance will be expanded with the building and implementation of this new ultra-modern and expansive data center. NSA surveillance without accountability to the Department of Homeland Security or the Department of Justice.

The National Security Council, (made up of the President and Vice President of the United States, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Pentagon’s Joint Chief of Staff, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Director of National Intelligence (DNI). and the National Security Advisor), will wield totalitarian power over all citizens of the United States.

With no oversight, (or obviously insight) provided for the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice there will be an attempt on their respective parts to acquire intelligence from the NSA to supplement their own means of gathering domestic intelligence on anti-american agents, activists, and parties, both domestic and foreign, and of their activities to do harm to the security of our nation. The Department of Homeland Security is actively involved in equipping their agencies with the latest technologies available for gathering this intelligence. One such resource available to DHS is its own U.S. Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) Student & Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Database. DHS’s Federal Bureau of Investigation plans on spying on Social Media web sites and their subscribers. This will add to their already growing number of Cyber-Space Surveillance Technologies currently implemented and planned for implementation.

While the Department of Defense, and its National Security Agency and Defense Intelligence Agency carry on domestic national spy programs on U.S. Citizens violating the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights; the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation declares War on the White House, Director of National Intelligence, and the  Central Intelligence Agency.

The FBI investigation sanctioned by the Department of Justice of CIA Director General David H. Petraeus exposed his extra-marital affair which FBI officials identified as Ms. Broadwell leading to the immediate resignation of General Petraeus. The Department of Justice has now succeeded in removing one of very few military minds which has successfully protected this country from attacks by terrorists throughout the world.

The DOJ and FBI has succeeded in making this country far more vulnerable to terrorist attacks in the future by removing one our generation’s greatest military and counter-intelligence minds. They have also created a vacuüm which the DoD‘s NSA and DIA is all to willing to fill by increasing their violation of individual freedoms under the Constitution of the United States.

The White House, Director of National Intelligence, and the Congressional Senate and House Committees where caught totally by surprise by the charges levied against General Petraeus. The credibility of the entire Federal Law Enforcement, National Intelligence Agencies, and National Defense Agencies are now in question.

Many questions surrounding National Security need to be answered. First of all; Why did a Federal Agency not coordinate its investigation with all National Security Agencies since one of the most important Agencies was at the center of the investigation. This was the primary reason the Department of Homeland Security formed after 9/11. Yet all protocols to protect the citizens of this Nation were circumvented.

The damage done is enormous. The complete destruction and career of one of the United States most decorated military and counter-intelligence leaders over an extra-marital affair which employees, agents, and lawyers in the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation would not be able to deny themselves. Nothing was gained by this investigation while the interests of National Security have been highly compromised. The White House’s advisers and the President’s Cabinet will now be focused on what other nefarious investigations being conducted by the FBI while the DoD Agencies continue to violate the Constitution of the United States and the rights of private citizens with impunity.

But one thing which has become most prominently obvious. After investing hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars in the Department of Homeland Security it  continues to flounder about with no real charter as an entity bloated of uncoördinated Federal Agencies and hundreds of billions of wasted tax dollars while providing no real services to this country or its citizens. The other obvious deficiency is the Department of Justices ability to effectively investigate and prosecute real national security threats to the citizens of this country.

The Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense need to be investigated by a joint Congressional National Security Committee to assess the charters of and necessity for some Agencies and possibly the existence of DHS as a Federal Government Entity.

The Federal Government of the United States believes that the United States Seal Teams are Federal Government Assets which are answerable only to the United States Department of Defense, National Security Council, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and President of the United States of America.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The members of all United States Military Departments and Agencies answer for their actions to “We the People”. The U.S. Government has assumed the mantle of the “Supreme Law of the Land”. Yet they have continually proven they do not have to answer to anyone but themselves, least of all to those who have given them the privilege to serve.

All members of Seal Team Six are National Heroes not U.S. Government heroes. They answer to, and only to, “We the People” whom they have given an oath to serve and protect under the Constitution of the United States of America. They will not be held accountable under oath to the Government of the United States of America under any legislative act concerning National Security unless the citizens of the United States deem they have violated their oath under the Constitution. All charges against Seal Team Six by the Department of Defense must be dropped immediately in the interests of National Security as the members of Seal Team Six are heroes of “The People”.

“We the People” have “a right to know” what our “Government” is doing in the interests of National Security to determine if said Federal Government Officials are acting in the best interests of the Nation under the Constitution. It is the people governed by the Constitution of the United States who determine what is in our best interests and those officials appointed U.S. Government officials which have not been elected to their offices by a popular vote and yet act as elected executives of the Government and feel unfettered by the Constitution of this country which guarantees the rights of all citizens who have elected their officials by popular vote.

“We the People” in order to form a “More Perfect Union” and not a “Federal Government” demand our U.S. Government to answer for its actions. If the currently elected Federal Government refuses to abide by the Constitution of these United States it is within our power to relieve them of their duties in any manner deemed necessary to return the Federal Government to operate under the tenants of the Constitution of the United States.

The conspiracy of hiding  Osama bin Laden has ended! Found in Abbottabad, Pakistan surrounded by retired and vacationing Pakistani Brass and high-ranking officers Osama bin Ladin was found to be only one half of a mile from the Pakistani Army Academy which is their equivalent to the United States West Point Army War Academy. How his habitation in such a facility in such an area could have been a secret is regrettably unbelievable.

After the Battle of Tora Bora in Afghanistan the only place Osama bin Laden could have hidden is in Pakistan even though the Pakistani Government, Military, & Intelligence swore he was not in their country. The Pakistani milked the United States for billions of dollars in military and other aid for several years knowing where Osama bin Laden could be found. It is possible that as much as 70% of the foreign aid to Pakistan was diverted and stolen by Pakistani Government and Military officials.

We still have unfinished business with Ayman al Zawahiri, (Osama’s deputy);  Abu Yahya al Libi, a chief Al Qaeda ideologue; Saif al Adel, the strategic mastermind of Al Qaeda who operates from Iran; and Sa’ad bin Laden, one of Osama’s many sons. How much more blood-money must be spent and valuable US Intelligence assets must be used to track down these Al Qaeda Terrorists.

The United States is still in a conflict fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan with its own organization, infrastructure, and tribal and sect leaders which need our Intelligence community to deal with while the US Military takes the fight to them.

 Osama bin Laden is dead. He has been killed at the hands of our Intelligence Community and Special Operation Forces.  Our thanks and gratitude are extended to they who will probably be anonymous forever. These operations remind us of how Israeli Intelligence and Special Operatives tracked down and executed the Islāmic terrorists who planned the hostage taking and slaughter of Israeli Athletes at the 1972 Munich, Germany Olympics.

Yet, we do not rest. We still fight a War against Terrorism. Now is the time for even greater vigilance for the impending back lash. For most Muslims this is a time of justice in that Osama bin Laden blasphemed and sinned against the Qur’ an and Allah. However, Al’ Qaeda, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Hamas, Iran’s Ayatollah’s extremists, and many other Sunni Terrorist and Hashishiya, (assassin), Shiite sects continue to exist and plan attacks.

Most Muslims share our condemnation of these Islāmic Extremists and worship according to Islāmic traditions of love and faith.

As we are vigilant we must also be mindful of the fact that there is blood on Christian hands as well. The Christian Riots in fourth century Alexandria, Egypt when pagans and Jews were murdered and their libraries burned. The First Holy Roman Crusade  (1096–1099) may have begun with the persecution and slaughter of the Jews in the Rhineland. The Siege of Nicaea ended with Byzantine forces taking control of the city preventing it being sacked by the Holy Roman Crusaders  who would have probably put the populace to the sword. At the Siege of Antioch  the Holy Roman Crusaders put the city’s populace to the sword. The Siege of Jerusalem ended with the Holy Roman Crusaders massacre of most of the Muslims and Jews in the city.

The Albigensian Crusade or Cathar Crusade (1209–1229) was a 20-year military campaign initiated by the Catholic Church to eliminate the Cathar Gnostic heresy in Languedoc, France. As many as 40,000 Cathar souls may have been slaughtered or burned at the stake during the crusade. The Albigensian Crusade also had a role in the creation and institutionalization of both the Dominican Order and the Medieval Inquisition or what is still known today as the Inquisition.

Congressman Jack Kingston‘s (R-GA) website http://kingston.house.gov has a news press release entitled “KINGSTON CONTINUES WORK TO SHIELD TROOPS, AVERT SHUTDOWN” and is working on a resolution  “Ensuring Pay for Our Military Act of 2011,” (HR 1297). Congressman Jack Kingston may be a strong supporter of military pay but he exhibits an interest in many cost cutting programs. Narrow scope leaves a job part done. Our military needs more than access to their more than well deserved wages.

Our Country is at War!

Seven important lessons need to be learned from the Romans about how to treat a military.

  1. Keep your military well fed.
  2. Pay your military in a timely manner.
  3. Give your military the best equipment and weapons of war.
  4. Educate and train your troops to use them more effectively than your enemies.
  5. Provide your military with the best intelligence, scientists, engineers and sappers.
  6. Provide the best medical and health care possible for your military.
  7. For past military service provide education benefits, healthcare, home loan benefits and monuments.

 

All too often our military rifle platoons and squads find themselves engaged in combat having inferior small arms fire power and, many times, going without the support of a strong weapons platoon equipped with M240 medium machine guns; M224 mortars; AT4-CS; FGM-148 Javelins; and M16A4 using M855 5.56X54mm and FN SCAR-H heavy assault rifle sections using  7.62X51mm NATO ammunition respectively with two rifle attached 40mm grenade launchers like the M203 or HK M320 40mm in each section for the high rough mountainous terrain where there is excellent ground cover easily adapted to camouflaged strong points.

Outside urban areas nonmechanized rifle platoons need to be weapons platoons with heavy assault rifle sections, a medium machine gun section, and a M224 or M252 mortar section. These platoon sections should have sniper teams to support it. Also in high mountainous areas beasts of burden could be used to carry mortar equipment, heavy machine guns & mounts, FGM-172 SRAW, Shoulder-launched Multipurpose Assault Weapon or SMAW MK-153, AT4-CS, FGM-148 Javelins, extra 60mm or 81mm mortar rounds, extra SMAW rockets; and extra machine gun, rifle, and sidearm ammunition.

Instead of the beasts of burden the future holds Squad Mission Support System or SMSS, the Multifunction Utility/Logistics and Equipment vehicle or MULE, and the CRUSHER unmanned ground combat vehicle.

Lightly armored HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle) or Humvee mechanized rifle and weapons platoons have vehicle mounted M2-BMG‘s or Mk 19 grenade launchers. Why shouldn”t our non-mechanized units deserve the same when in hostile terrain?
