Who's on first? Who's on second? Who's really the terrorist? Just a glimpse down the rabbit hole

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." ¡X Samuel Adams
June 25, 2004¡XUnocaledonia and Conocopia You might know them formally as Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Great New Western Frontier now has assimilated these third world countries into the Bush-Cheney reorganization program for the "New World Order" and their global plutocratic policies. So without further ado or remorse, Let's have a really big welcome for Boy George Bush and his band of thieves performing their new fabulous hit that all America loves; "Everybody in my administration wants to rule the world."
If you believe Mr. Bush only wants to bring democracy and freedom to Afghanistan and Iraq you probably also believe that General Electric only sells light bulbs and toasters. Well, think again, my little Bushkins and Sheep'ziz; the proof lies in the pudding and the main "ingredient" is oil.
Who's On First?
Right after we bombed Afghanistan into the Stone Age, as Mr. Bush promised we would in retaliation to the September 11 "terror attacks, we saw a new figure emerge to lead Afghanistan, Harmid Karzai. But just who is the new Afghan president?
Harmid Karzai is a former Unocal consultant. During the Reagan administration he was a top contact for the CIA and maintained close relations with CIA Director William Casey, Vice President George H. W. Bush, and their Pakistani Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) Service interlocutors.
After the Afghanistan war with Russia, Karzai and a number of his brothers moved to the United States under the auspices of the CIA. Karzai continued to serve the agency's interests, as well as those of the Bush Family and their oily friends in negotiating Unocal's proposed Central Asian Gas Pipeline Project.
The Taliban itself is a creation of American and British politics. In the 1980s, the tribal army that produced them was funded by the CIA and trained by SAS units to fight the Russian Invaders.
The hypocrisy does not stop there. When the Taliban took Kabul in 1996, Washington said nothing. Why? Because the Taliban mullahs were soon on their way to Sugar Land, Texas, to be entertained by executives of Enron and the oil company Unocal, with the complicity of CIA operatives on Enron's payroll. Our government, Enron and Unocal funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to the Taliban for years. It goes without saying that much of the Taliban moolah went to fund and arm "al Qaeda terrorists" within Afghanistan. Again we were doing battle against a monster of our own creation.
Dick Cheney, former Halliburton CEO and now vice president, used to serve on the Kazakhstan Oil Advisory Board with executives from Chevron and Texaco.
Oddly, Chevron and Texaco merged only days before the bombs began to fall on Afghanistan. The resulting company, ChevronTexaco, will have a 45 percent interest in Kazakhstan's huge Tengiz oil field near its border with Afghanistan (ExxonMobil has a 25 percent interest). The Tengiz field is just part of the Caspian oil reserves.
This was what it was all about, the gooey, oily truth. As it has been widely reported, the Bush administration was negotiating with the Taliban early in 2001 to work out the deal for Unocal's pipeline. The administration allegedly told the Taliban it could choose between "a carpet of gold or a carpet of bombs." We all know what it was in the end.
On Friday December 27, 2002, it was reported that Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan signed a framework agreement for a US $ 3.2 billion gas pipeline project passing through their three countries. In a ceremony held in Pakistan at the Presidential Palace with the three leaders, Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali, President Saparmurat Niyazov of Turkmenistan and Afghan President Hamid Karzai signed the document that closed the long awaited deal of blood money for oil.
Who's On Second?
Daddy Bush has always been cozy with Texas oilmen and is a member of the $12 billion private equity firm, the Carlyle Group, which invests heavily among many defense contractors, including (drum roll please!) Halliburton. The Carlyle Group and Halliburton will get rich off the Iraq war and the longer it last, the richer they will become.
Also worth mentioning Battelle Memorial Institute (BMI) a major source of research and development expertise for our government owns laboratories in West Jefferson, Ohio. According to The New York Times, the laboratories are center to a top-secret defense project named "Operation Jefferson." In a September 2001 article, the Associated Press reported that an "anonymous Pentagon official," was quoted in reference to "Operation Jefferson," in which "a new and highly lethal strain of anthrax" had been developed.
Prior to the string of Anthrax attacks following 9-11, BMI hired bio-weapons researcher William C. Patrick III, who holds five secret patents in producing weapons grade anthrax, to investigate the implications of mailing powdered anthrax through the postal system. "Strangelovian Bio-Billy" or Mr. Patrick is also a consultant to the FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency and the CIA. Spooky, huh, Sherlock? Oh! Coincidently BMI is in partnership with Michigan-based Bioport, which holds a virtual monopoly on military anthrax vaccine production in the US. By even more coincidence, the Carlyle Group is a major shareholder in Bioport.
Wherever you look they turn up with their dirty fingers. Carlyle's influential movers and shakers include such heavyweights as former Secretary of State James Baker, ex-Secretary of Defense and ex-Deputy CIA Director CIA Frank Carlucci, former President and former CIA Director George H.W. Bush, and former British Prime Minister John Major. President [sic] Hubba Dubya Bush has also held board membership.
What is even more fascinating is the first anthrax fatality in the post 9-11 mailing was Bob Stevens, a photo editor for American Media Inc., who was in custody of two important reputed pictures of George W. Bush. One allegedly was a photo of Dubya lying in the satanic ritual coffin while engaging in homosexual acts with one of his fellow Skull & Bonesman at Yale. The other an alleged photo of him apparently drunk and/or stoned, dancing nude on a tavern bar or table.
