It May Just Be Political Ideology...



Note, January, 2007:


This report by Karl Schwarz addresses issues which seem to have been conveniently swept under the rug by many so-called 9-11 "researchers", as well as political pundits and alternative news media.


Karl is the author of One Way Ticket to Crawford Texas.


Knowing Karl as a friend and professional colleague, and having discussed these issues at great length with him, in both face-to-face meetings and phone conversations, I can attest to his remarkable ability to analyze intelligence and to draw accurate conclusions which take into consideration the "big picture".


Following Karl's update, he has included a brief commentary I wrote on the false allegations being promoted about Karl and myself by some of the Gore supporters. This camp includes Stew Webb, a longtime (former) friend of mine, who has now become a shill for the Al Gore-2008 campaign.


I held to my principles, and lost a friend. Not a new situation, but definitely heartbreaking each time it happens.


February, 2006


From Karl Schwarz


It May Just Be Political Ideology...


To all Email Update Members,


One of the things I watch very closely in members of the so called 9-11 Truth Movement and some of the so-called Patriots is whether they slant their actions or design their ends around political objectives more so than matters of justice and what is best for all Americans.


One such group is Tom Heneghan, Stew Webb and some of their sycophants like Mary Schneider that are dyed-in-the-wool Al Gore backers. I am not going to sign off on, endorse, or support any politician that has blood on their hands and that includes Al Gore. With GHWB, Clinton, Gore and Bush, I have learned my lesson and have had enough of all of them.


For example, these two purported "Connect-a-Dot" experts cannot get anything straight or right and would probably lose playing connect-a-dot with a three year old. On their "U.S. Intelligence Report", aired via the Hal Turner network of February 2 they stated that Douglas Feith had just been convicted to 12 years in prison and had fled the country. Well, sorry, Tom and Stew but Douglas Feith has not been charged, tried or convicted of anything. Larry Franklin, who did work for Feith in the Pentagon, was convicted and sentenced to 12 years and he is in custody of federal authorities and in a federal prison.


If you ever listen to their show you will learn what I mean in saying that their U.S. Intelligence Report is a contradiction in terms.


Tom Heneghan started spouting off Bridas Corporation matters on www.cloakanddagger.de recently with Lenny Bloom about the Bridas "oil find" in Afghanistan and a pipeline to the People's Republic of China. The pipeline in question is, and always has been, the Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan and Pakistan to the ocean. Afghanistan has no, repeat no, proven oil reserves. The Bridas oil reserves were in Turkmenistan, signed in 1992 and 1993, not in Afghanistan and they needed the pipeline to get the oil and natural gas to the ocean.


They also told their miniscule audience that Barbara Hartwell and I are aligned with the Mossad, Foxcom, and Jack Abramoff and spying on the U.S. Congress. That is about as preposterous a statement as has come out of any American's mouth on any subject. I have never in my life met, talked to or seen Jack Abramoff, any Mossad agent to my knowledge and have never done business with or talked to Foxcom in any manner whatsoever.


Stew Webb's Website - A Menagerie, a Portrait of an Idiot in Action


Where are the hard, verifiable facts, Stew Webb? Can any of us get a single sentence out Tom Heneghan that is factual from start to finish? I have spoken to Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan on many occasions and they talk a lot, cannot or will not produce a single document to back up what they say.


They are both all mouth and made it clear to me via Stew that they have no hesitancy in using lies over the truth when they feel like it.


The following is posted on the Stew Webb website:

If you have been slandered, stalked, threatened by nutcase Tim White, you may contribute to the fund by contacting Stew Webb.]


Big spender – Webb is offering a reward he does not have the money to pay.


Exactly what is the domicile of "The American French Alliance", or AFA that the two of you spout off about? Is that an entity in good standing anywhere on this planet, or just more idle words coming from the Webb–Heneghan duo?


Fact – My company has never met with, talked to or partnered with the company Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan have alleged and neither myself nor my company have ever engaged in any such conduct. That is slander, defamation and libel and the matter will be addressed by our attorneys. They have put it in writing; they have voiced such lies on the air on the only radio show that will give them a slot, the bigotry station of the Hal Turner Network.


At the start of each show Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan boast that "we hold the Hal Turner network harmless", which is somewhat ludicrous since they cannot afford to pay the bounty on Tim White without having to raise the funds. Hal Turner might want to reconsider the financial means of his wannabee guarantors.


Einstein said it best – "insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results". Stew Webb has no problems using lies to push his agenda, a nutcase and illiterate, and has been doing the same things for years expecting different results.


Just read his writing again, taken verbatim from his website.


With these two, if they cannot get the dots to connect, they manufacture the dot and to Hell with the Truth. I have to keep reminding myself that they are Al Gore supporters, another person who is not hemmed in by the truth. Their bashing of me started when I refused to withhold information on Gore as I exposed the Democrats and Clinton – Gore along with Bush.


Just one look at the facts we presented regarding the Democrats and Republican conflicts of interests on the 9-11 Commission is proof that the problem is on both sides of the aisle.


They are the people that sabotaged Tom Flocco's credibility with knowingly false information (key phrase: knowingly false information) regarding the purported assassination of JFK, Jr., a non-existent grand jury seated on that assassination, and they just keep spouting it off. Just before my January 1, 2006 email came out Stew Webb and I got into a discussion regarding their use of false information and he made it clear to me that he could not care less if they were spreading disinformation and misinformation, or lies as a means to achieve their objectives.


Another such group is the twosome of Eric Hufschmid and Daryl Bradford Smith, who for some reason lash out at anyone that does not buy off on the Jimmy Walter theory that the complete solution to 9-11 lies in World Trade Center 7.


Additionally, there are what I call "nuance groups" that apparently take actions in the US courts along the lines of justice for all but then something interesting happens. When confronted with evidence that might help their actions but expose Democrats too they never return calls, emails, or take any action along the lines that they could take to expose the Bush GWOT fallacies but in doing so would be exposing Clinton and Gore actions going back to that administration.


The two books Neoconned and Neoconned Again, especially the latter, have very detailed parts about the Rasul v Bush and Hamdi v Rumsfeld cases. I am not criticizing those books and what I am about to share with you has not been discussed with the editors of that book. These two books are the best I have read regarding the lead up to the war in Iraq and the efforts to expose every detail about what happened from Desert Storm through the Clinton – Gore Administration and now the actions by Bush. They are monumental works but some of the contributors seem to have taken action that was more political than justice oriented.


However, there is something very subtle going on that is affecting this nation, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and there are political ideology camps that are apparently more concerned about election outcomes for 2006 and 2008 than they are the greater good of this nation. Such actions are coming in many forms but the most distinguishing feature is trying to pin it all on Bush and Cheney when the facts show that Clinton – Gore were actively involved in Caspian Basin and Afghanistan matters well before September 11, 2001. In fact, if you read Neoconned it is easy to see that war crimes charges for genocide should be brought against George H W Bush, Clinton, Gore, Madeline Albright and Bush – Cheney for what has been done to the Iraqi people.


Within the 9-11 Truth Movement are persons and groups that bash anyone that is working on 9-11 facts that shed light on involvement of people in both parties. They wish to pin it all on Bush even when the facts show otherwise. When they do not get their way they bash and trash persons who are working to expose it all and all guilty parties. I am one such person and have been attacked viciously by such DNC attack dogs.


One group has alleged that I am in bed with Abramoff and spying on the US Congress. Until his name came up in 2005, I had never heard of Jack Abramoff. Another group has erroneously alleged that I am an arms dealer while another has taken simple facts of my life and twisted them around backwards. I have learned firsthand that they will tell any lie and their agenda is the elections of 2006 and 2008. The fact that my efforts and those working with me are exposing both sides of the aisle on matters preceding 9-11 and since to the current time is causing them to bash our entire group of researchers.


I could be wrong but this same phenomenon might also describe the way the lawsuits have been handled regarding the rights of the enemy combatants being held by our government. Facts are available and known, certain chronologies are easily proven, yet are not being used to win those lawsuits. Once we dug deeper on the issues in the pleadings to the courts there are certain Clinton – Gore era facts that are absent from the pleadings that were made on behalf of Hamdi and Rasul.


Both of the cases were lost at the US Supreme Court and Bush was allowed to keep the lid on and his veil of secrecy as to why he does not want anyone, especially attorneys, talking to any of the enemy combatants being held by our government. If a case loses in court, many times the why was not explained sufficiently in the pleadings and briefs for the court to see the wrong being done. In this case, why Bush fears anyone being allowed to talk to the alleged enemy combatants he is holding incommunicado at Gitmo and other places.


The recent email updates have clearly spelled out that many of the alleged 9-11 terrorists are alive, have ties to US military and CIA, and have every appearance of being dropped names instead of the real perpetrators. There is an agenda in play and we have exposed that as well as any group.


In our research on 9-11 we may have come across the why that can explain why Bush fears any of these prisoners talking.


On September 24, 2004 an article appeared on OnlineJournal.com that I wrote titled A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Truth.


Within the contents of that article is information regarding Bridas Corporation, information that I presented in New York City at the Jimmy Walter financed 9-11, Confronting the Evidence. Many Americans and foreigners have seen what I had to say in the DVD made of that event and it only contained about one-third of what I said that night.


Then on September 30, 2004 about seven hours before the first Bush –Kerry debate, we sent a facsimile to the White House and copied both DNC and the Kerry campaign with emails of a Demand Letter I sent to George W. Bush. Item three of that demand letter might be the real and true reason that George W. Bush does not want anyone at Gitmo (or other prisons around the world) to ever be allowed to see an attorney. A close friend sent the fax from Ground Zero in New York and I sent the emails to people I was in contact with at the Kerry campaign and DNC. These actions happened at 1 pm EDT , and the first Bush - Kerry debate started at 8 pm EST that evening.


I demand to know how many prisoners are being held at GITMO and other places that are either BRIDAS EMPLOYEES or are persons that know all about Bridas Corporation and what your administration did to get control of that Trans-Afghanistan pipeline.


The US government has even moved prisoners from Gitmo when it appeared that they might have to provide access to legal counsel.


After the A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Truth article appeared I was contacted by a former Bridas Corporation employee who advised that the company was missing employees that they feared were either terminated to keep them quiet or had been put in Gitmo or other places where no one could talk to them about what really happened in Afghanistan. The only other option is they went into hiding knowing that what they know about Bridas, Afghanistan and that pipeline might be hazardous to their health.


That simple fact might be the real reason Bush is so adamant that the prisoners cannot talk to the ICRC [International Committee of the Red Cross], Human Rights Watch, or Amnesty International or their family members, or attorneys.


In fact, if you dig deep enough you find that most of the Gitmo prisons were not captured due to U.S. intelligence. They were handed over by bounty hunters to collect money from our government under their terrorist reward program. That alone makes the value of those prisoners highly suspect.


It is easy to prove that Bridas Corporation was all over the Caspian Basin well in advance of US and UK oil companies. They signed agreements with Turkmenistan as early as 1992 and 1993 and then had to make arrangements for a pipeline across Afghanistan and Pakistan to get that oil to ocean terminals and loaded onto oil tanker ships. That company negotiated and signed an agreement with the Taliban and General Rashid Dostum in 1996. The latter is the Uzbek general that controls the northern part of Afghanistan and apparently sold out Bridas and the Taliban shortly before 9-11 and our attack on Afghanistan.


Operation Steppe Shield was in play in 1989, Clinton – Gore with the 20 Year War plan, CIA renditions and Patriot Act, aka: PDD #39 and even the book The Grand Chessboard all happening in 1997.


One of the fact patterns we dug into was this sudden shift of General Dostum. In 2002 we were contacted about a matter that might explain the sudden shift in loyalties by General Dostum and we reported on it in early 2005 once we finally tracked down as much of the known facts as we could.


Oddly enough, the trail we picked up was in Kosovo, not Afghanistan or Iraq. The trail ended at the death of the man you can read about at the link in Part VI of Pop Goes the Bush Mythology Bubble. I even sent a letter to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and copied most of the major media outlets on the letter, with no action from any of the media.


The recent email update disclosing how many of the alleged 9-11 terrorists were involved in Kosovo and Bosnia should turn on a few light bulbs among the readers.


Since we knew about Bridas Corporation in 1999 and its role in the Caspian Basin, our approach to looking at 9-11 has been different from most of the 9-11 researchers or other persons addressing certain facets and side effects of our policies since that time. Having a lawsuit in the U.S. courts was very telling and being able to track it from 1999 through the final US Supreme Court decision on March 22, 2004 helped my team to see things in their proper perspective.


We have also tracked the various cases such as Hamdi v Rumsfeld and Rasul v Bush where various legal groups have supposedly fought for the habeas corpus and Constitutional rights of those persons we hold captive in Gitmo and other places. I say supposedly because there is a trend line building that makes it reasonably clear that many such actions may have been for Democratic political gain and not judicial reasons. They may have been actions to embarrass Bush to create advantage in 2006 and 2008 for the Democrats. I do not say that lightly and explain below what has transpired.


The people who pursued these lawsuits on behalf of Rasul and Hamdi might have very good reasons for why they did not address Bridas Corporation. However, as long as the facts clearly show that the Clinton and Bush Administrations were directly involved in actions against Bridas and Afghanistan it opens the door as to why they only presented Bush era facts and chronology and not the entire set of facts going back to at least 1995.


SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES


RASUL et al. v. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, et al.


CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMIBA CIRCUIT


No. 03—334. Argued April 20, 2004–Decided June 28, 2004


HAMDI ET AL. v. RUMSFELD, SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, ET AL.


CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT


No. 03–6696. Argued April 28, 2004—Decided June 28, 2004


If you subscribe to the belief that everything happens for a reason, we may have come across something that is starting to smell of just business as usual in Washington, DC and politics wrapped up in apparently Constitutional issues.


Since 9-11 happened and we invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, the Bush Administration has tried to change the classification of Prisoners of War to enemy combatants and deny them legal representation or access to anyone except the federal and military employees holding them captive. Most Americans have heard of the CIA renditions, abuses at Abu Ghraib, Bagram and Guantanamo Bay. Two groups, on their own and without actually meeting with their clients filed lawsuits. One was the Center for Constitutional Rights, or CCR representing Hamdi and the other was law professor Joseph Margulies, University of Chicago representing Rasul.


During the Christmas break I focused on finishing Neoconned Again and even read these parts of the book twice to compare with what the authors were saying to what we know to be true.


I contacted Michael Ratner of CCR by telephone in early 2006 and one of his aides returned my call. I contacted Joseph Margulies by email and by telephone and he did not respond at all.


That was not the first time I had contacted Michael Ratner on this matter and had done so in 2004 as well while the CCR lawsuit was in front of the US Supreme Court. In 2004 I spoke several times with his aide and then with Michael himself regarding facts we uncovered or were provided by key people who surfaced because of my writings or my appearance in New York City. The aides I have spoken to are not sharp on facts and details as to why I was calling.


To our dismay, they apparently never did anything about the information we provided regarding Bridas Corporation and its possibly missing employees.


These are links [not given] to excerpts to parts of Neoconned Again that relate to the Bush secrecy matters and the efforts taken to sequester the Gitmo detainees away from the world so they cannot tell their story or even defend themselves. Evidence against them is not allowed by our government to be seen by them so they can respond and defend themselves.


Professor Joseph Margulies, Esq.


Dr. Joseph Margulies, Esq


Col. Dan Smith, USA (ret) (My comment: This retired colonel did what I think is the best article on what is wrong with the Bush policies but there is no mention that the policies started under the Clinton – Tenet CIA.)


Over the past several weeks we have laid out the facts that CIA renditions, DU use policy, the precursors of Patriot Act, and the 20-year War Plan all started under the Clinton – Gore Administration around 1997. That is the same period of time that actions had been taken against Bridas Corporation and the lawsuit was filed in Texas. That same lawsuit was won by Bridas Corporation at the Fifth Circuit US Court of Appeals on September 9, 2003, Case Number No, 02-20929 and the appeal by Turkmenneft was lost at the US Supreme Court on March 22, 2004, Case 03-1018.


That is not hard to figure out once you know three facts:


1) The CIA Renditions started under the Clinton – Gore Administration; and


2) The 20-year War Plan for 2000 – 2020 was commissioned under the Clinton – Gore Administration around 1997; and


3) The Patriot Act was commenced under the Clinton – Gore Administration. I am certain of that now that we know about the CIA renditions, the 20 Year War Plan and these two PDD documents all occurring during the Clinton – Gore Administration.


You can add the fourth item to that list in that Bridas signed their agreement with the Taliban in 1996, the lawsuit was filed in Texas in 1997 regarding interference of contract to Bridas operations in Turkmenistan and direct efforts to lure the Taliban into breaching their agreement with Bridas started in earnest under the Clinton –Gore Administration.


With 2006 and 2008 being election years, and I clearly see that DNC is licking their lips at the thought of taking back power from the Republicans, I see a possibility that these lawsuits to supposedly defend habeas corpus and get legal counsel for these detainees might be yet another attempt to discredit Bush without pointing a finger at the Clinton – Gore Administration.


I watched the 9-11 Commission hearing in earnest because I wanted to see if any of them had the guts to bring up the name Bridas Corporation. Not a one of them brought up that name or that the case was at Fifth Circuit while the 9-11 Commission was purportedly investigating what happened on 9-11..


If you file a lawsuit in US District Court, then to the US Appeals Court and then the US Supreme Court on crucial constitutional issues and fail to prove "the why" of the matter, odds are you will lose the case. If you fail to provide information to the court that can explain the why of the matter, such as Bridas Corporation and its missing employees, and even its presence in Afghanistan, it raises a question as to why the attorneys did not avail themselves of all facts and information in their attempt to win their arguments before the courts.


The Clinton – Gore Administration were taking overt and covert actions against Bridas Corporation. That is a matter of public record and court records. As of 9-11, the only remaining obstacle to US control of that pipeline was the Taliban – Bridas agreement and that can easily be proven. The Bush Administration apparently took covert actions through General Rashid Dostum and direct military action as a result of 9-11 without ever disclosing to the world that Bridas Corporation had a contract with the Taliban for a pipeline that was coveted by US oil companies.


The true embryo of this entire Global War on Terror had its roots in the Clinton - Gore Administration and for some reason certain persons are taking steps that do not tell the whole story. The pleadings to US courts have been directed at Bush and I have yet to see a one of the cases that lays out the entire chronology that led up to 9-11, or the invasion of Afghanistan and what has transpired since that time. If I can find out that our government is financing that TAP pipeline via the Asian Development Bank and OPIC [Overseas Private Investment Corporation, a Washington, DC financing and political risk insurance entity], so can these attorneys that have filed multiple cases and all of them have failed to get the matter
opened up to public scrutiny or even win in a court of law.


If we can find Bridas Corporation and the chronology of what they did in the Caspian Basin and Afghanistan, so can others. They have been mentioned in the book Bin Laden: The Forbidden Truth by French authors Jean-Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquie, and in my book and on many radio shows heard all across America and Canada. Some of the information we sent out also went to CNN, FOXNews, all major networks and most of the major city newspapers, Newsweek and others. None of them addressed the matter in any story we have seen.


It might be very easy to prove if someone would file and cite the whole truth, and nothing but the truth and stop slanting matters to pin it all on Bush - Cheney. Bridas Corporation and its missing employees might be the real reason that Bush has to maintain secrecy and not let any of the detainees talk.


The only downside to that is one would have to expose it all and that includes the role that Clinton – Gore had in what has led up to 9-11 and our attack on Afghanistan to take over the pipeline that was controlled at one time by Bridas Corporation.


Are there serious abuses going on at Gitmo and elsewhere regarding the legal rights of humans? Yes and probably far worse than reported thus far.


Is there a way to blow the doors open and get this matter fully looked into by a court of law? Possibly, they can be opened if one of the matters in the pleading is that an Argentina corporation is apparently missing employees that have either been killed or being held incommunicado by the Bush Administration. Those employees are definitely not enemy combatants, they are just persons who have information that the Bush Administration and Clinton Administration do not want you to ever hear.


There is a reason Bush wants total secrecy and no contact by anyoneto the enemy combatant detainees. That reason might be as simple as Bridas Corporation and its employees that were in Afghanistan.


The jury is not out. The jury has never been allowed to be seated to hear the facts. Odds are, until someone files a lawsuit on behalf of the detainees and puts the entire matter in the pleading instead of slanting it only towards Bush and Rumsfeld, the truth will remain hidden.


The reason I got fed up with most of the 9-11 Truth Movement is it is littered with people who are only working on slanting the facts to make Bush appear to be the only culpable party and our facts clearly show that many from the Clinton – Gore Administration should be grilled for hours before a real 9-11 Commission on their actions as well as the Bush Administration. The events of 9-11 are a crime against the United States and other nations that has nothing to do with political ideology or party lines.


The bottom line is simple: if Bridas employees are in fact missing and being held by our government to silence them so they cannot talk about what was done to upend their contracts with Turkmenistan, Pakistan and Afghanistan, those are facts that the world needs to know about. That includes the courts that would hear such matters.


Where was the primary US base of operations during the period 1992 through 2001 for the Caspian Basin? Azerbaijan is the correct answer via a CIA front known as the US – Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce.


Where was the primary US base of operations during that same period regarding Afghanistan? Pakistan is the correct answer.


What was our leverage on General Rashid Dostum? Certain reports indicate that he has been a CIA asset for quite some time and following 9-11 was paid a very large sum of money, by our government. See Part VI of the Pop Goes the Bush Mythology Bubble series at the link that appears earlier in this email.[link not given]


What languages does FBI translator Sibel D. Edmonds speak? She speaks Farsi (Iranian), Turkish (her mother), Azeri (her Azerbaijani father) and English.


What did she find inside the FBI? She found foreign and American names involved in drug trafficking, money laundering and financing of 9-11. What she found was not in the Arabic language. What she found dated back to 1998, ongoing drug investigations, and the Clinton – Gore Administration.


About six to eight hours after the WTC towers crashed to the ground, a flight took off from Kosovo bound for Turkmenistan or Uzbekistan, and from there a large amount of cash in crates was off loaded onto helicopters and flown into the northern part of Afghanistan. That flight, same day as September 11, 2001, may well have been a huge bribe or reward paid out to General Rashid Dostum.


The United States government has suppressed the investigation into every matter regarding 9-11 and what has been done since that day. The reason is apparently simple – lies have to be covered up.


It is my considered opinion that national security is not the objective. The protection of certain nationally prominent butts is why the total veil of secrecy has been invoked and it can be ripped away in a simple way. Our facts point in that direction and so does what Sibel D. Edmonds found inside of the FBI.


Find and question the missing Bridas Corporation employees. The entire veil of secrecy Bush and Rumsfeld want to keep on the enemy combatant detainees could be as simple as they do not want anyone to know about Bridas Corporation or that we are holding people that are in no way enemy combatants or terrorists. If they have been killed or tortured to death by agents of our government that alone is evidence of a crime.


The odds are high that our government is holding these Bridas people somewhere to keep them quiet and what they have to say should be on the record for the world to hear.


This matter cannot be pleaded to the court along ideology lines and ever get to the whole truth. The problem is both sides of the aisle and both the Clinton and Bush Administrations were involved.


Maybe the appropriate action should be filed under 18 U.S.C. § 2441, The War Crimes Act. We have polluted Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq (and possibly the Sudan) with dirty bomb DU weapons through the past three presidential administrations.


Additionally, if we are holding corporate employees that are not enemy combatants or terrorists, that would be a War Crime and a gross violation of every law I have ever seen regarding Human Rights and the Geneva Conventions.


The infamous Judge Gonzales memo dated January 25, 2002 even cited that he recommended the approach to lessen liability under the War Crimes Act, but once the truth is known and fully laid out that memorandum and Clinton and Bush actions will not stand scrutiny before a court of law.


Secrecy is not always to protect National Security. Many times it is to conceal criminal conduct at the highest level of our government.


There are two morals to this story.


First, the 9-11 Truth Movement cannot beat the liars with lies. It will take the truth to stop the insanity and policies that should have never been created and implemented.


Secondly, if people are going to stand up and fight back they need to avail themselves of every possible tool, fact, and means to take on the type of institutional deception that our government has now proven to the world and to America that it is capable of committing. Policies do not happen by accident and many times do not happen due to necessity. What we are seeing are policies that are driven solely by power and greed.


Best regards,


Karl


PS: the following was written by Barbara Hartwell, former CIA. Barbara Hartwell has known Stew Webb a lot longer than I have and sees the pattern he is doing now. It is a pattern that he has done over and over again by picking the wrong sides, following the wrong path. Stew Webb has a lot of history and his actions are predictable. It is a mistake he has made for many years and keeps doing it to himself and then blaming others, lashing out at them instead of facing his own results due to his own actions.


Note from Barbara Hartwell


Stew Webb: Where are the facts?


Last month, Stew Webb posted on the U.S. Intelligence Breaking News section of his website, that I, Barbara Hartwell, had been "cut off" due to "joining in a disinformation campaign with Karl Schwarz."


Fact: I have joined no such disinfo campaign.


Fact: Karl Schwarz is running no such disinfo campaign.


Stew has more recently posted a "bounty hunter" reward for the arrest of Tim White. Included in that notice is the statement that White is the "sidekick" of Karl Schwarz. Further, he claims that Karl Schwarz was involved in "spying" on the U.S. congress and senate, through a connection with an Israeli technology company.


Fact: Karl Schwarz has no such association with Tim White, such that White could possibly be considered a "sidekick"; there is no alliance of any kind between Tim White and Karl Schwarz.


Fact: Karl Schwarz has never been involved in any such "spying" nor has he had business dealings with such a company.


If Stew Webb wants to make these wild allegations, for the apparent purpose of attempting to discredit Karl Schwarz and myself, I would at least suggest he furnish some solid evidence to substantiate his claims.


However, there is one very serious problem that I can see: No such evidence exists on any of these claims. They are lies, plain and simple.


So I would ask Stew Webb, please, to cease from making these false allegations. In addition to these public postings, it has also come to my attention that similar lies about myself and Karl Schwarz are being disseminated to certain individuals who are mutual acquaintances/friends/associates of myself and Stew Webb. I have already encountered a good deal of trouble in my personal life, due to these lies. I am outraged that someone I have considered a good friend for over five years would engage in such tactics.


Please stop it, Stew. I am asking you nicely, at least the first time. If this nonsense persists, it will only do more harm to your own reputation and credibility.
