SEC Chairman Chris 'WMDS' Cox:Did The CIA's SRA International Eat George W Bush's E-mail ?
27 Apr 2007
How many U.S Presidential e-mails did SRA International 'lose' track of now ? Why does SEC Chairman Chris 'Naked Shorts' Cox(who lied about WMDs' in Iraq and now lies about 'naked short selling' hurting worthless U.S. penny stocks he and the SEC should have closed down years ago) keep SRA International on the SEC dole anyway ?If SRA International can't account for government e-mail they are paid to keep track of how can Cox be sure his 'evidence' of 'naked short selling' is not just an SRA International glitch on his SEC's internet site ?

Federal agency looks at e-mail account use by White House aides
Bloomberg News
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 04.25.2007
The U.S. agency that enforces the restrictions on political activity by federal officials will investigate whether White House aides improperly used Republican Party e-mail for government business.
The Office of Special Counsel, an independent agency that enforces the Hatch Act ban on mixing government and political business, said it will seek information about e-mail use by presidential aides from the White House, said Loren Smith, the agency's director of congressional and public affairs.

SEC's and CIA's,et.al.'s SRA International: a stock and security fraud:

By did sra international eat w bush's email ? on 4/17/2007 2:51:30 PM
E-mail: endoscam (at) lycos.com

SRA International for whatever reason has a virtual monopoly on U.S. Government 'IT' contracts. Why ? Are they really that good or do they just have unfair lobbying advantages in the Beltway and Washington,D.C. ? They,JUST like Cerberus hedge fund and its IAP Worldwide with its Walter Reed scandal and ongoing efforts to gain access and employment by data mining your IRS tax records and Titan Corp of Level-3,whose employees tortured at Abu Graibe and whose employee Makram Chams cashed the Dubai originated $70,000 check for Mohamed Atta et.al.,ARE ALL ON THE U.S. DOLE ! Why ? Not to forget Halliburton whose old Kellogg Brown and Root boys and Mr.(hee hee)Swindle are taking good care of wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and just bought themselves some nice banks(Leumi of Israel and Bawag of Austria) to 'hedge fund' through.And oh so maaany more.......

And even after having experienced a similar scandal of lost White House email during the Bill Clinton era when SRA International was paid to retreive lost e-mail of the Clinton White House,what does SRA International,'IT' folk to the George W Bush White House do ? They let history repeat itself and they who should take some substantial responsibilty wish to shrug off their culpability in losing government and public property !

Certainly the SRA International folk who do such a good job in organising Securities Exchange Commission and other public records(NOT!)and has had prior experience with lost White House email,should have helped W Bush,Carl Rove,the Republican Party,et.al.protect and preserve vital email such as that pertaining to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales firings of various U.S. attorneys around the U.S.,right ? WRONG !Although the crooks of SRA International have a virtual monoploy on government AND military 'IT' work the U.S. government internet system is in shambles.

And I say crooks from experience because I was an 'investor' in the Stanford University pump and dump penny stock scam called Endovasc when SRA International's Mantas 'AML' or anti-money laundering software was employed in 2002 by Charles Schwab who at the same time provided a protected and anonymous account to dump up to 30 million worthless Endovasc shares from ! The Charles Schwab account probably belonged to James Dale Davidson connected individuals.Davidson is founder of the U.S. National Taxpayers Union and Agora Inc. of Baltimore,Maryland.He like his pal the Lord William Rees-Mogg recommended LOM of Bermuda to their readers in ' The Soveriegn Individua l'without disclosing their ownership in LOM.

Davidson is associate of Steve Forbes and master mind of the 'Clinton killed Vince Foster' smear campaign of the 1990's.It is because of Davidson's power behind the scenes in Washington,D.C. that Chris Cox's corrupt SEC PROTECTS DAVIDSON'S ILLEGAL PENNY STOCK ACTIVITIES AND PROBABLE MONEY LAUNDERING.James Dale Davidson has hinted in his far right wing newsmax.com propaganda website that he was involved in similar activities for George Herbert Walker Bush's IraqGate and Iran Contra scandals.

Mantas DID NOT EVEN NOTICE THIS MASSIVE FRAUD GOING ON RIGHT UNDER THEIR NOSES ! And I suspect their software works when they want it to and their close association with the CIA and the NSA leads me to believe SRA International and its Mantas software or a version was used for data mining the SWIFT international financial transactions and banking records of Brussels,Belgium !

How many U.S Presidential e-mails did SRA International 'lose' track of now ? Why does SEC Chairman Chris 'Naked Shorts' Cox(who lied about WMDs' in Iraq and now lies about 'naked short selling' hurting worthless U.S. penny stocks he and the SEC should have closed down years ago) keep SRA International on the SEC dole anyway ?If SRA International can't account for government e-mail they are paid to keep track of how can Cox be sure his 'evidence' of 'naked short selling' is not just an SRA International glitch on his SEC's internet site ?

Chris 'Naked Shorts' Cox and the rest of his corrupt Securities Exchange Commission staff know that SRA's Mantas'anti-money laundering' software failed when LOM of Bermuda sent untold worthless U.S. penny stocks and money between its Schwab account and Bermuda - BUT DID NOTHING BUT COVER UP ! Why ?!

And why prey tell does the corrupt and incompetent Cox not only dismiss the corrupt SRA International that had its IPO shares promoted by Bellador Group of Kuala Lumpur(while it proudly bragged of providing a 'daily briefing' for the CIA who in turn briefed W Bush)and REPLACE THEM WITH A FREE GOOGLE SEARCH OF THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE COMMISSION DATA THEY NOW KEEP HIDDEN IN ORDER TO PROTECT CRIMINALS LIKE BELLADOR GROUP,JAMES DALE DAVIDSON, THE GRIN BROTHERS AND ON AND ON !?

Would any of you internet and stock literate readers here not agree it is long since time for the corrupt incompetent Christopher 'WMDS' Cox to get SEC records googled ? Is the 'edgar' system not itself a public stock that has even been funded or invested in by the likes of Florida Democrat Congressman Tim Mahoney's corrupt vFINANCE or am I mistaken about that ?Just think,Google would cache and alphabetize all of those hidden SEC documents for FREE ! Yet SEC Chairman Chris 'Naked Shorts'' Cox would prefer to pay SRA International tens and hundreds of millions of $s to HIDE THEM ?! WHY !?

CIA's SRA International can't find W Bush's e-mail ?

Google search news and internet for ' white house e mail ' ' white house e mail sra international' ' white house e mail sra international clinton'......

Surprise,surprise that the very pampered boys and girls at SRA International who were accused by the far right of working with Bill Clinton to hide his e-mail have allowed history to repeat itself.

Funny these stock sheisters and ex government
'national security' and retired or semi-retired military and federal employee parasites and hangers on from the SSA,IRS,NSA, U.S. miitary, etc.,had their own SRA International or SRX shares promoted by Bellador Group,a Kuala Lumpur and Dubai connected boiler room,a few years ago. SRA International executive Barry Landew was in charge of its supposed anti-money laundering software division called Mantas that I suspect was employed by ex Secretary John Snow and the CIA to data mine and spy on international financial transactions through the Brussels, Belgium SWIFT that receives data on international financial transactions.

In truth the U.S. IRS should be looking at John Snow,Dan Quayle,Stephen Feinberg and Kellogg Brown and Roots' Mr.Swindle et.al.who bought both Leumi Bank of Israel and Bawag of Austria that have been involved in huge international scandals over the years with U.S. penny stocks and other worthless money laundering suspect financial instruments.It is scumags like them that the SEC LETS RUNS FREE AND THAT THE IRS ALLOWS TO STEAL AMERICAN MONEY TO FILL OFFSHORE ACCOUNTS ! Instead the U.S. IRS employees are hired(bribed)by the Bush Regime's 'IT' or internet technology specialists and the IRS even wants to employ Cerberus now to spy upon American taxpayers instead of investigating where all Cerberus cash came from !No wonder the SRA International gang like the U.S. SEC employees boast of such high morale - they are basking in and profiting from securities corruption and fraud.What's in SEC employees retirement and other securities portfolios ? Do SEC employees benefit financially for all the securities fraud and money laundering they have overseen and let run rampant both pre and post 911 ?

RNC Releases Partial List Of White House Officials With Party Email Accounts
Lawyers for the Republican National Committee sent a letter tonight to Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) with a list of 37 individuals “who we believe are or were White House employees using RNC accounts for whom we have been able to identify active e-mail data on operational RNC servers.”

The list — which includes senior officials like Karl Rove and Dan Bartlett as well as interns for the Office of Political Affairs — can be found below.

The White House has said that roughly 50 White House officials have had RNC accounts since 2001, and the letter suggests that more individuals with RNC accounts will be identified. “As the RNC is still in the early stages of its analysis, we expect that this list will require revisions at a later date.” Who are these unidentified individuals? And did they work in jobs that wouldn’t typically require a partisan email account?

CIA's SRA International Touted by Bellador Group on 4/24/2007 4:54:08 PM
E-mail: endoscam (at) lycos.com

One poster pointed out on offshorebusiness.com message board a long while back that SRA International(that the CIA's In-Q-Tel was a big investor in) was recommended and touted by Peter Taylor's et.al.'s, belladorgroup.com . When I viewed the belladorgroup website in the past I had never seen SRA International or SRX listed on their website as one of the stocks they recomended.But sure enough this old 2005 cache on the 'way back machine' has SRX listed along with the Stanford University's Endovasc pump and dump fraud and China Wireless that was also recommended by a Republican business council.

So we have here a CIA and In-Q-Tel company that pumped itself up on all the gov subsidies it gets with NSA and other gov agencies exchanging employment between SRA and government employment and it is or was being promoted like a common penny stock through Bellador Group of Kuala Lumpur and Dubai.Why ! I guess that means the SEC must cover up for them so my own gov has a vested interest in defrauding me.

Note Bellador Group was allowed to 'pump and dump' or 'boiler room' worthless U.S. penny stock shares in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai post 911 where terrorist money laundering is suspected.In the case of Endovasc a penny stock fraud with Stanford University and thus Joseph Grundfest,
( ex SEC Commissioner in 'Poppy' or George Herbert Walker Bush's Regime),connections.The Bellador Group boiler room didn't even file with the SEC !(do google search for bellador group)

China Wireless another penny stock fraud out of Colorado run by a Republican also had its worthless shares promoted by Bellador Group of Kuala Lumpur ! And SRA International can also be found on Bellador Group's old website whose link is below as the symbol 'srx' on right hand side of page with evsc and china wireless,etc. :

Does NSA Serve SRA International's 'Cookies' ?
by Tony Ryals • Thursday December 29, 2005 at 04:20 PM
endoscam (at) lycos.com

The rumor that SRA International's Barry Landrew may be addicted to gambling and have accumulated debts to pressure him to manipulate and dump his own shares for cash cannot be dismissed lightly.He could even be tempted to allow SRA International's spying apparatus to be used by the criminal 'private' sector if this is true.

For those who have been following: I have posted two articles-stories-complaints on the indymedias recently about my experiences with the supposed anti-money laundering corporation, or 'AML' ,Mantas Inc., recently, whose links you will find at the bottom of this post.They, like their founders SRA International, are conveniently located in the Beltway to be near their clients at Big Brother Inc., no doubt. Immediately below is a promotion from the SRA International website itself bragging about 'picking' the probably criminal and certainly corrupt brain of an NSA 'bigwig'. SRA International and Mantas Inc.brag about detecting the 'bad guys' through use of 'behavior' software.

And yet who is watching their behaviors ? Rumor is that Barry Landrew, CEO of SRA International that has obtained monopolistic contracts with various government agencies,(including our fraud watchers at the GAO!!),probably due to the fact of the CIA's In-Q-Tel investments in SRA International,is himself addicted to gambling like that Republican pillar of 'virtues', Bill Bennett.(Do google search ,'sra international Barry Landew gambling')

What I suggest and hope is that as many people as possible contact their congress people and demand an investigation not only of NSA's spying on the public but of their software people SRA International and also into their 'spinoff', Mantas Inc,.who,as I have explained previously in various indymedia articles, allowed the illegal 'pump and dump' .of Texas' fraudulent biotech company, Endovasc and many others, to be orchestrated and covered up through a Charles Schwab and vFinance accounts among others.(see link Charles Schwab Share-Money laundering below.)

Also demand that that the SEC or Securities Exchange Commission investigate SRA International's and Mantas Inc.'s possible connection to or involvement with Bellador Group, www.belladorgroup.com , of Kuala Lumpur and Dubai, and why it recommended both Endovasc and SRA International stock shares to its suspect clients.

The fact that Bellador Inc. has been allowed to pump and dump SRA International shares and many UNAUDITED AND UNREGISTERED U.S. penny stock shares,both onshore,and offshore in terrorist suspect money laundering regions,is proof certain CIA , Mantas Inc. and SRI International employees and mangement are aiding and abetting the terrorists they warn us about.

The fact that shares of SRA International are dumped even more easily on the international market because Bellador and SRA Inernational management and CIA can claim they have guaranteed income from our own government is scandalous beyond all belief.SRA International shares may have been used for money laundering in terrorist suspect money laundering centers as well.So we can only conclude that the GAO who has given tens of millions of dollars to these people not only has rewarded them for spying on us but has inadvertently been used as a prop in the promotion of shares that Mr.Landrew,the CIA's In-Q-Tel and Bellador Group Inc. of Kuala lumper have used to con others to buy shares as they dump and pocket the cash !!!

The rumor that SRA International's Barry Landrew may be addicted to gambling and have accumulated debts to pressure him to manipulate and dump his own shares for cash cannot be dismissed lightly.He could even be tempted to allow SRA International's spying apparatus to be used by the criminal 'private' sector if this is true.

Note that while even Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur
securities commissions have warned their citizens about Bellador Group's fraudulent boiler room activities our Securities Exchange Commission continues to do nothing.In fact the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission does much worse than nothing,they provide the unaudited penny stock shares that are the backbone of Bellador Group's illegal boiler room activities that defraud American and other stock investrors and are laundering money for someone(s).Maybe some SEC employees should resign or be investigated as well.(Do a google search of 'bellador group'.)

SRA picks brain of ex-NSA bigwig
Jeff Clabaugh
Staff Reporter
Fairfax-based SRA International, an IT contractor whose customers include national security agencies, has a former National Security Administration bigwig on board to help advise it.

Michael Jacobs, a 38-year veteran of the NSA who most recently served as its director of information assurance, will join SRA International as senior adviser for cyber and national security.

Among his assignments will be working with intelligence and law enforcement organizations to sell solutions for improving secure information sharing. SRA International says Jacobs' local government experience will also be handy in dealing with local and state government clients.

Jacobs also served as mayor of College Park from 1997 to 2001.

SRA International went public this spring, raising $90 million in its initial public offering. Its stock (NYSE: SRX) has gained more than 46 percent since its May IPO, trading at around $26.50 per share.

Mantas,Herndon, Va, Pro-Money Laundering Arm of International Bankers,Brokers,Market Makers...

by Tony Ryals Monday, Dec. 19, 2005 at 5:55 PM
endoscam (at) lycos.com

Mantas Inc. whose expertise is supposedly anti-money laundering has allowed untold millions or perhaps billions of laundered dollars go unchecked by criminals or even possibly terrorists through our banking , brokerage and market maker systems... promotion of Endovasc penny stock by Agora Inc. of Baltimore followed by massive dumping of 'up to 30 million shares' from a Charles Schwab account is proof but still not even the tip of the 'share-money laundering' iceberg they are apparently paid to ignore. Charles Schwab sold the corrupt market maker business to UBS not long after that and many other illegal pump and dump schemes in partnership with LOM of Bermuda.Mantas Inc.was rewarded for not doing its supposed job of guarding against money laundering and illegal pump and dump activities by being contracted by UBS to oversee 'anti-money laundering' activities of UBS who bought Charles Schwab's market maker business.It should come as no surprise unfortunately that the CIA's In-Q-Tel has been an investor in SRA International, Inc (NYSE:SRX), and that its other parent company Safeguard Scientifics, Inc. (NYSE:SFE) actually shows every indication of having been an illegal pump and dump itself having been promoted even by Agora Inc. inthe past to near $100 per share a few years back to having become a penny stock today .

Mantas Inc,Herndon, Va, Pro-Money Laundering Arm of International Bankers,Brokers,Market Makers..

Is Money Laundering Good For The Bush Administration ?

Although the Bush administration claimed anti- money laundering was to be a post 911priority the truth appears quite different.In fact judging from the continued offshore and onshore activities and the SEC's turning a blind eye to 'business as usual' in allowing Reg.S penny stock activities to flourish and to use unregistered penny stocks to be bought and sold
offshore and dumped in the U.S. later to defraud U.S.
retail investors it would appear encouraging money launding is the clear priority as well as fraud against American investors.

SEC Commissioner Christopher Cox vows to bring James Dale Guckert/Jeff Gannon to Justice

According to a quote from Mr.Cox of a few days ago this would appear to be the case. The truth is more likely his and SEC attorneys' wish to gag both professional business journalists including at the WSJ as well as defrauded investors such as myself who wish to blow the whistle on SEC corruption and fraud.

FOIA,Alberto Gonzales and SEC'S Chris Cox Enron,Merrill Lych,Latham & Watkins conflict
by Tony Ryals Sunday, Jan. 14, 2007 at 7:01 AM
endoscam (at) lycos.com

If our soldiers only knew what Christopher Cox and his SEC has allowed to go on post 911 while sending them off to be killed or maimed in Iraq,even allowing corrupt Sabah royalty of Kuwait and the president of Israel Moshe Katsav to be corrupted with the sleazy U.S. penny stock market and giving them carte blanche to defraud Americans,some of them perhaps even family members of dead or wounded American soldiers or National Guard ! Doesn't Israel get enough American aid to pay for the salary of Israeli President Moshe Katsav ?Does he have to resort to pushing worthless penny stocks for 'UCSY' CEO Michael Zwebner and his Saudi connected con artist business partner and Islamic charity money laundering suspect Mohamed Hadid !?

SEC Chairman Christopher 'WMDS' Cox who lies about 'securities' the way he lied about WMDs in Iraq that sent thousands upon thousands of people to their deaths while allowing money to be laundered around the world post 911,including in known terrorist suspect money laundering havens such as Kuala Lumpur and Dubai through the help of U.S. 'market makers' such as Charles Schwab,Refco, vFinance, etc.,etc.,is being asked through use of the Freedom of Information Act or FOIA about conflict of interest in sweeping his law firm's former clients corrupt involvement with Enron under the rug.Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales also deserves much of the discredit for what is going on inside and outside the SEC as well.

But Christopher Cox could not sweep massive illegal pumps and dumps of worthless U.S. penny stocks around the world under the rug without Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales help or at least his willingness to look the other way and use the cry of 'terrorism ' as an excuse not only for W Bush's human rights violations at home and abroad but to keep any ethical FBI agents who may still be on the payroll too distracted supposedly hunting 'terrorists' that they never find and stop the SEC'S AND CHRIS COX'S PENNY STOCK CLIENTS FROM RUNNING SCAMS FROM THE U.S. TO AUSTRIA TO BERMUDA AND THE CARRIBEAN TO KUALA LUMPUR,DUBAI AND PLACES IN BETWEEN !

And there is every reason to believe based upon where these shares are ending up in boiler rooms around the world and dumped on investors through Refco,vFIN,UBS, CHARLES SCHWAB AND OTHER MARKET MAKERS AND STOCK BROKERS IN THE U.S. AND AROUND THE WORLD THAT THEY CAN AND DO AID FAR RIGHT CRIMINALS AND ELITES TO LAUNDER MONEY FOR WHATEVER CAUSES THEY WISH !

Thanks for aiding world wide terrorism by allowing money laundering and illegal pump and dump scams,Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales.You or one of terrorism's and international criminals dream come true.¡ Just like vFIN's W Bush White House connected penny stock con artist Charlie Patrick Garcia who touts his hispanic image to aid U.S. penny stock fraud around the world as a vFinance insider !

Even old Saudi Iraqgate and Iran Contra arms trafficker for George Herbert Walker Bush,Adnan Khashoggi,besides being wanted in Thailand for his banking and stock frauds from 1997 there is being pampered here by SEC Chairman Christopher Cox and Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales even after his worthless and hyped U.S. penny stock scam GenesisIntermedia collapsed on and around 9/11 leaving at least well over $100,000,000 in losses for his defrauded investors and bag holders.

Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and his masters W Bush,Dick Cheney,et.al.,must see Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales as a useful token 'minority like Condi Rice at best.And he works overtime or doesn't work at all as the case may be to protect that image. His DOJ or Department of Justice that includes the FBI, EVEN AWARDED MR.BERKOWITZ WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S AWARD FOR EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE IN THE ENRON TRIAL !

And even SEC Chairman Cox's law firm awards or bribes Berkowitz with a position at Cox's old law firm ! His part in the SEC and Bush White House Eron cover up must have been substantial.And his role in distracting the courts away from SEC Chairman Christopher Cox's and Latham & Watkins old brokerage clients must be what earned him such a prestigious position at that law firm.Can anyone say conflict of interest ? :

''Due to his work on the Enron case, Mr. Berkowitz received the Attorney General Award for Exceptional service (the highest award given to a Department of Justice employee).'' - from Berkowitz's new employers' Latham & Watkins own website.

What better reward for covering up for SEC Chairman Chris Cox's and Latham and Watkins clients at Merrill Lynch where never a discouraging word was heard at the Enron trial about them,at the federal trial controlled by Mr.Berkowitz.I wonder why ? And what better reward for covering W Bush's and other Beltway politicos past personal relationship to Ken Lay and Enron !

Some say even the CIA got a shre of Enron AND ITS DEFRAUDED INVESTORS.Perhaps that post 911 anthrax attack on The National Enquirer's Florida office was because National Enquirer wrote about the CIA-Enron connection.Certainly some ex CIA EMPLOYEES DID GET JOBS WITH ENRON.

So Mr.Berkowitz is rewarded by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales for NOT prosecuting Enron's massive fraud and not investigating the offshore accounts that also benefitted in the massive dumping of the company's worthless shares, including onshore through brokers and market makers such as Merrill Lynch !

In fact the sheer hypocrisy reminds me of vFinance and Tim Mahoney connected penny stock scamster Charlie Patrick Garcia being awarded a Henry Gonzalez award recently. Henry Gonzalez had he been alive today would never be invited to dine at the White House as Charlie Garcia has been.It goes to show how important stock fraud is to the W Bush White House as I have attempted to document in previous indymedia articles-posts.Tim Mahoney is the 'Reagan Republican' turned Rahm Emanuel Democrat that I will discuss further in an upcoming article.

Christopher 'WMDS' Cox the war and securities fraud aider and abetor and W Bush appointee to head the SEC should resign from the SEC or face criminal charges for aiding post 911war profiteering and money laundering around the world by allowing worthless U.S. penny stock shares to be used for money laundering as well as pump and dump manipulations.This skkkumbag we call the SEC Chairman has done enough damage.

Endovasc continues to pump and dump its scammy worthless shares years after any other company would have to declare bankruptcy all because Stanford University pays con artists like Joseph Grundfest with his insider SEC connections to cover up for their involvement with James Dale Davidson and his Agora Inc and LOM of Bermuda and because of all those cover ups finally to the penny share-money laundering havens of Kuala Lumpur and Dubai.

U.S. Ambassador Sam Fox,Israel's Sharon,Olmert, Leumi Bank,SWIFT Belgium,Bawag Bank Austria and Securities Fraud

Sam Fox would be an economic,political and social parasite by any other name but to place him as U.S. Ambassador to Belgium after the W Bush Regime's SWIFT financial spying scandal by ex Treasury Secretary John Snow and the U.S. CIA in Belgium is a lot like putting a fox in charge of the chicken coop.

I guess this far right Republican Jewish Coalition Chairman is not related to Vicente Fox former President of Coca-Cola in Mexico and the Mexican state Presidency, ,but they are one in the same in the sense of a far right international criminal organization often seeming to be united or organized through U.S. government 'intelligence' organizations often connected to the U.S. Republican Party itself !

The fact that a Republican and Tom DeLay endorsed penny stock company, Skyway Communications, had its plane confiscated in April 2006 by the Mexican army in Campeche, Mexico with over 5.5 tons of cocaine on board and the Mexican government never pressured for justice and that CEO Brent Kovar and his dad with White House and 'national security' connections and Israeli-American Miami attorney Michael Farkas and their far right Middle Eastern investors including Al Ali Al Sabah of Kuwait royalty and head of their National Guard were never even questioned here or in Mexico is AN OUTRAGEOUS COVERUP.

Even Israeli President Moshe Katsav has been bribed or corrupted with U.S. penny stocks though his involvement with British-Israeli Michael Zwebner and his 'UCSY' or Universal Communications Systems of Miami that claims to make a machine to get water from the air and false claims of having manufactured them for tsunami victims,U.S. Coaltion in Iraq and the Israeli army is outrageous! And in being connected to UCSY and even claiming that he drank the water from Zwebner's 'air-water machine' in a 2004 press release Isreali President Katsav is connected to Mohamed Hadid of Islamic charity money laundering operations out of Herndon,Virginia !

But of course a member of Kuwait's Al Sabah family was also on the board of another U.S. penny stock company called Securacom with W Bush brother Marvin Bush that had contracts to guard both the WTC and Dulles airport that both played a role and were very insecure on 911.This sleezy Kuwait-American or Bush-Al Sabah penny stock company that also sold worthless shares to the public just like W Bush's old Harken Energy scandal even got a contract to guard U.S. nuclear center of Los Alamos,New Mexico !

Likewise the coverup of Bawag Bank of Austria's ties to collapsed Refco 'futures' traders of the U.S.,(that Hillary Clinton apparently used to turn a thousand dollars to nearly $100,000 years ago) ,while John Snow's U.S. Treasury and CIA looked on from SWIFT in Brussels, Belgium then bought the bank after the Refco collapse through his Cerberus hedge fund is also outrageous.

Fox and his Saint Louis based Harbour corporation with its hypocritical Chinese investments and 'leveraged buyouts' of corporations for liquidation of assets or cheap corporate shares to pump and dump on the securities markets makes him a perfect W Bush choice to oversee economic spying through SWIFT and the EU parliament to see who the Bushies can bribe and make use of in their international criminal activities they call 'the war on terrorism'.

Mr. Fox is also close to far right Israeli circles as evidenced by his position in the Republican Jewish Coalition.

All of this makes knowing his position on ex U.S. Treasury Secretary John Snow's and the CIA's spying from SWIFT of Brussels,Belgium urgent.Does Fox not realise that fellow Republican and ex Sec.of Treasury John Snow has a clear conflict of interest in the U.S. and the EU and perhaps even in Israel by joining Cerberus' military-industrial-hedge fund as Chairman that then bought both Bawag of Austria and Leumi Bank of Israel !? Does Mr.Fox wish to corrupt Israeli leaders such as Ehud Olmert and and Moshe Katsav even more than they already are !?

House panels subpoena Rice, grant immunity to former Gonzales aide
April 25, 2007

By LAURIE KELLMAN

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — In rapid succession, congressional committees Wednesday ramped up their investigations of the Bush administration by approving a subpoena for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and granting immunity to a former key aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

By 21-10, the House oversight committee voted to issue a subpoena to Rice to compel her story on the Bush administration’s claim, now discredited, that Iraq was seeking uranium from Africa.

Moments earlier in the committee chamber next door, the House Judiciary Committee voted 32-6 to grant immunity to Monica Goodling, Gonzales’ White House liaison, for her testimony on why the administration fired eight federal prosecutors. The panel also unanimously approved — but did not issue — a subpoena to compel her to appear.

Simultaneously across Capitol Hill, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved — but did not issue — a subpoena on the prosecutors’ matter to Sara Taylor, deputy to presidential adviser Karl Rove.

The House oversight committee also issued subpoenas for the Republican National Committee for testimony and documents about White House e-mails on RNC accounts that have apparently gone missing, in violation of the law.

In case Gonzales thought the worst had passed with his punishing testimony last week before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the chairman and top Republican issued a new demand: Refresh the memory that Gonzales claimed had failed him 71 times during the seven-hour session.........

The investigation into the prosecutors’ firings spawned another probe into whether White House aides conducted official business on the RNC e-mail account, then deleted the e-mails in violation of law requiring all presidential records to be preserved.

Why email matters: The science behind the US Attorneys scandal - Steve Burgess
Published: Wednesday April 25, 2007

Print This Email This

Email, which is more and more in the news these days, is close to the center of the current US Attorney firing scandal, and for good reason. A substantial amount of communication flows via email, which is nearly instantaneous, costs almost nothing, and has in large part replaced the paper memo.

Email also provides a path of inquiry that previously was unavailable to investigators. A paper document can be shredded or burned, while email leaves a trail even when deleted. Furthermore, unlike a piece of paper, the email itself reveals who sent it and who received it, when and where. As Senator Patrick Leahy says, “You can't erase e-mails, not today…They've gone through too many servers. Those e-mails are there –”.................

In his article Follow the e-mails, Sidney Blumenthal says, “The offshoring of White House records via RNC e-mails became apparent when an RNC domain, gwb43.com (referring to George W. Bush, 43rd president), turned up in a batch of e-mails the White House gave to House and Senate committees earlier this month. Rove's deputy, Scott Jennings, former Bush legal counsel Harriet Miers and her deputies strangely had used gwb43.com as an e-mail domain. The production of these e-mails to Congress was a kind of slip.”

Indeed. This is exactly the kind of information that computer forensics experts like to have to assist in their process of electronic discovery. In my own e-discovery work, I have found more than a half million unexpected references on a single computer.

Investigators may now be able to search the computers at the RNC, in the White House, and at the locations that host computers for both, as well as those laptops and Blackberries used by staffers of these organizations. The search will be on for any occurrence of “gwb43” – a search that is likely to turn up more email addresses and more email, whether deleted or not.................

Web mail, where the user is essentially looking at a web page that is displaying mail, keeps all its emails on a remote server (such as on AOL’s large farm of mail servers) and little or nothing is on the user’s own computer. Such remote mail servers are so dynamic that any deleted email is likely to be overwritten in a matter of minutes. Blumenthal references the advantages that such systems may have for those who wish to hide information in Follow the e-mails: “As a result, many aides have shifted to Internet E-mail instead of the White House system. ‘It's Yahoo!, baby,’ says a Bushie.”..............

The current US Attorney scandal has shown us once again that email is not only a valuable tool for communication, but has the benefit (or detriment, depending on your perspective) of providing additional transparency to the otherwise closed rooms of our leaders.

Federal agency looks at e-mail account use by White House aides
Bloomberg News
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 04.25.2007
The U.S. agency that enforces the restrictions on political activity by federal officials will investigate whether White House aides improperly used Republican Party e-mail for government business.
The Office of Special Counsel, an independent agency that enforces the Hatch Act ban on mixing government and political business, said it will seek information about e-mail use by presidential aides from the White House, said Loren Smith, the agency's director of congressional and public affairs.
Congress' investigation into the firings of eight U.S. attorneys turned up e-mails by Scott Jennings, the deputy political-affairs director at the White House, that were written from a Republican National Committee account called "gwb43.com."
The Special Counsel's Office is "looking at" allegations of "illegal political activity across the administration. The scope will definitely include e-mails," Smith said. "We will be looking at e-mails, both governmental and nongovernmental," he said.
"In general, there wouldn't be anything wrong with using nongovernmental e-mail" to perform lawful acts, Smith said. "It will be in the scope of our investigation to determine whether or not that was the case."
The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, headed by California Democrat Henry Waxman, is investigating the disappearance of administration e-mails and whether White House officials used outside e-mail accounts to avoid requirements of public-records-disclosure laws.
The White House said recently that it couldn't account for some e-mail messages written by presidential aides that may have information about the firings of the U.S. attorneys.
A ethics watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, estimated in a report that as many as 5 million e-mails may be missing. The White House hasn't disputed the figure, saying the messages may be on computer tapes.
The missing messages include those written on government and Republican Party e-mail accounts, the White House has said.
Karl Rove, the top political adviser to President Bush, is among 50 current and former White House officials who used GOP e-mail accounts, Waxman said.
Presidential spokesman Scott Stanzel said in an e-mail that the White House "will cooperate as appropriate."

House Committee Authorizes Subpoena for Rice

By William Branigin
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, April 25, 2007; 3:30 PM

The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform today authorized subpoenas for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Republican Party documents as part of probes into a key assertion in the run-up to the Iraq war and alleged violations of presidential records rules...................

The committee also authorized two subpoenas related to an investigation of possible violations of federal law by White House officials in using Republican National Committee e-mail accounts for government business and in conducting partisan political activities in federal agencies.

Separately, the House and Senate Judiciary committees voted to authorize subpoenas for two administration officials in an investigation of the controversial dismissals of eight U.S. attorneys last year. The House panel voted to approve a grant of immunity from prosecution for one of the officials, Monica M. Goodling, a former top aide to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales.

The actions by the committees ratcheted up pressure on the Bush administration at a time when Gonzales is under pressure to resign over the prosecutor firings and the White House is locked in a battle with Congress over an emergency war-funding bill.

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee accused majority Democrats of engaging in a partisan witch hunt and diverting Rice from important international diplomatic initiatives.

Waxman said Rice has been asked repeatedly to appear before the committee but has refused.......

Waxman told the committee that he was deferring action on two other matters: subpoenas for the testimony of former White House chief of staff Andrew H. Card Jr. on the 2003 leak of CIA officer Valerie Plame's identity and for documents on contacts between the White House and MZM Inc., a Washington-based national security contractor implicated in a bribery scandal. Waxman said the White House yesterday "substantially complied with our request related to MZM" and that discussions about Card's testimony were continuing.

Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), the top Republican on the committee, objected to the subpoenas for Rice and the RNC, charging that Democrats were "overreaching" and revisiting "old issues and grievances . . . for the sake of political theatrics."....

One of the subpoenas authorized today is for the testimony of RNC Chairman Robert M. Duncan on May 8.

Waxman said congressional investigations have found that White House officials used RNC e-mail accounts to conduct official government business in violation of the Presidential Records Act of 1978. Since RNC policy is to destroy e-mails after 30 days, many records may have been lost, violating the act's requirements for the preservation of White House documents, he said.

He said the RNC so far has failed to provide some basic information about its e-mail accounts. "We have been slow-walked and stonewalled, and that is not acceptable," Waxman said...............

In letter to Waxman yesterday, the RNC's law firm listed 36 White House employees who used RNC e-mail accounts, including top political adviser Karl Rove and presidential counselor Dan Bartlett.

The letter urged Waxman to limit the scope of the document review "in order to avoid a monumentally expensive and time-consuming effort that will needlessly consume and waste RNC resources."

Waxman said a number of other White House officials with RNC e-mail accounts were not on the list and that the committee's requests for records would be "as targeted as possible."

SEWAGE! Rove, E-Mail and 44 U.S.C. Chapter 22 Will be Focus of U.S. Office of Special Counsel. No. 4.24.2007. 81.
There is an ongoing congressional investigation of the special e-mail system installed in the White House and other government offices by the Republican National Committee.

This system appears to be the Bush, Rove, end-run around the laws regarding Presidential Records [44 U.S.C. Chapter. 22].

But there is also a new investigation, which will examine the firing of at least one U.S. attorney, missing White House e-mails, and White House efforts to keep presidential appointees attuned to Republican political priorities.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel is expanding its investigation of a January 2007 videoconference, conducted by Karl Rove’s deputy for General Services Administration appointees, to look at whether the political dealings of the White House have violated the Hatch Act.

The 1939 Hatch Act limits the political activities that government employees can conduct with government property or on government time. The Office of Special Counsel is charged with investigating allegations of Hatch Act violations.
However, since Special Counsel Bloch is a Bush appointee and he himself is under investigation hope must wait...............

It is a dizzying situation. The investigator investigating officials who oversee the agency that is investigating the investigator. Forget firewalls. This looks more like a basement flooded with backed-up sewage–with the water rising.

CREW Chief on Fitzgerald and the Missing Emails

CREW Chief on Fitzgerald and the Missing Emails

By Matt Renner and Jason Leopold
t r u t h o u t | Report

From:

www.truthout.org/docs_2006/041807A.shtml

Wednesday 18 April 2007
A couple of weeks before I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, was indicted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges, then-White House Counsel Harriet Miers was told that an internal White House probe determined that millions of administration emails dating back to 2003 were lost.

Miers immediately informed Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor appointed to investigate whether administration officials knowingly leaked the identity of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson, about the administration's lost emails, a government watchdog group has claimed, but Miers may not have told Fitzgerald the extent of the White House's email problem.

During a wide-ranging interview with Truthout on Monday, Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and CREW's Chief Counsel Anne Weismann said they believe Miers did not fully inform Fitzgerald about the millions of emails the White House lost between 2003 and 2005. As a result, the CREW attorneys said it's likely that Fitzgerald did not obtain all of the evidence related to the leak investigation - particularly emails sent during that time period by Karl Rove that may further implicate the White House political adviser in the Plame Wilson leak.............

In October of 2005, the White House Office of Administration discovered that White House emails had not been archived in accordance with the Presidential Records Act, according to Sloan. The Office of Administration briefed Miers about the lost emails and Miers is said to have immediately informed Fitzgerald's staff about the issue due to the fact that Fitzgerald had subpoenaed White House emails sent in 2003. However, according to Sloan, Fitzgerald's staff was briefed before a complete audit of the email records could be taken.

The Office of Administration audit concluded that more than five million emails had been lost. Sloan, who said her organization had obtained information about the extent of the emails the White House lost from two sources - one a former Bush administration official - believes this "suggests that Fitzgerald might not have gotten the complete story."

In late January 2004, Fitzgerald suspected that Rove had either hidden or destroyed an important document tying him to the leak, as well as the effort to discredit Plame's husband, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who had been a vocal critic of the Iraq war and accused the Bush administration of twisting pre-war Iraq intelligence. The document that Fitzgerald believed Rove had either hidden or destroyed was an email Rove sent to Stephen Hadley, then-deputy national security adviser, in early July 2003. The email proved Rove had a conversation with Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper about issues related to the CIA leak. Rove did not disclose that conversation when he was first interviewed by the FBI three months after he had emailed Hadley.

Curiously, the email Rove sent to Hadley did not show up during a search ordered by then-White House Counsel Alberto Gonzales in September 2003. Gonzales enjoined all White House staff members to turn over any communication pertaining to Plame Wilson and her husband. Gonzales's directive came twelve hours after senior White House officials had been told of the pending investigation.

"It looks like Karl Rove may well have destroyed evidence that implicated him in the White House's orchestrated efforts to leak Valerie Plame Wilson's covert identity to the press in retaliation against her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson," Sloan said last week. "Special Counsel Fitzgerald should immediately reopen his investigation into whether Rove took part in the leak, as well as whether he obstructed justice in the ensuing leak investigation."

In light of the revelations Thursday that thousands of emails Rove sent over a four-year period via an email account maintained by the Republican National Committee may have been destroyed, questions as to why an email Rove sent to Hadley was not initially found in the 10,000 pages of documents and emails turned over to the special counsel has resurfaced. Additionally, there are also questions about the veracity of statements Rove and his attorney, Robert Luskin, made to Fitzgerald more than two years ago regarding why that email to Hadley wasn't found.

On April 12, CREW published a report entitled, "WITHOUT A TRACE: The Missing White House Emails and Violations of the Presidential Records Act," outlining the widespread failures by the White House to retain its emails. In its report, CREW said that "although [then-] White House counsel [Harriet Miers] was provided a detailed briefing of this analysis, and a plan of action to recover the missing email was developed, the plan has never been executed."

During a press briefing on Monday, White House Spokeswoman Dana Perino said the administration is "aware that there could have been some emails that were not automatically archived because of a technical issue."

"We have talked with the Office of Administration about that, and we're looking into those details," Perino said. "But given the complex nature of this issue, it might take us a little while to identify those. We do, however, know that most - all of those emails should be available on backup tapes."

Last week, CREW sent a letter to Fitzgerald urging him to reopen his investigation in light of revelations that thousands of emails Rove sent via an email account maintained by the Republican National Committee had been lost. CREW serves as legal counsel to Joseph and Valerie Wilson in their civil suit against Rove, Vice President Dick Cheney, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby and Richard Armitage. Libby was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice earlier this year for his role in the leak of Plame's identity.

Fitzgerald has not responded to CREW's letter, Sloan said.

Weismann, chief counsel for CREW, said the fact that Rove and other White House officials have sent emails through their Republican National Committee (RNC) accounts raises new questions about the integrity of Fitzgerald's investigation.

"Rove admitted to using the RNC servers for 95% of his correspondence," Weismann said. "Was Fitzgerald aware of this prior to closing the case? Did [Fitzgerald] know emails were being deleted from the RNC server?"

Until 2004, the RNC deleted emails from its server after 30 days. However, administration officials with RNC accounts could still independently access and delete email from the RNC server. The RNC said Rove was blocked from deleting emails from his RNC account during the CIA leak investigation.

Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Oversight and Governmental Reform Committee, has been investigating the use of unofficial email accounts by Bush administration officials. On Thursday, Waxman's staff met behind closed doors with RNC Counsel Rob Kelner to discuss the issue. In a letter to Gonzales on Thursday, Waxman said that the RNC has email archives dating back to 2004, but "has apparently destroyed all email records from White House officials from 2001, 2002 and 2003."

According to Waxman's letter, the RNC had special email procedures for Rove. According to Kelner, the RNC does not have any archived emails prior to 2005 for Rove. This, despite the reports that Rove uses his RNC account for the majority of his correspondence. Waxman said that Kelner "did not give any explanation for the emails missing from Mr. Rove's account, but he did acknowledge that one possible explanation is that Mr. Rove personally deleted his emails from the RNC server."

Sloan and Weismann said CREW has no direct evidence proving that Rove intentionally withheld emails from Fitzgerald's probe. But the CREW attorneys doubt that Rove and the White House has been forthcoming about Rove's involvement in the Plame Wilson leak in light of the fact that millions of emails during the height of the leak have not been recovered............

www.alternet.org/rights/50598/U.S. Attorneys and Voting Rights: The New Watergate

By Marjorie Cohn, AlterNet. Posted April 16, 2007.

The attorney scandal is a cover-up revolving around efforts by the Bush administration to disenfranchise African-American voters in communities where the vote is close. ..............................

Shortly after the Watergate break-in, President Richard Nixon and his loyal chief of staff H.R. Haldeman spoke in the old Executive Office Building. Their conversation was taped, but 18.5 minutes were erased. This gap incriminated Nixon in the cover-up which eventually led to his impeachment and resignation.

Likewise, there is a suspicious 16-day gap in the email records between the Justice Department and the White House just before seven of the U.S. attorneys were fired in December. Moreover, many of the communications about the matter were conducted using email accounts of the Republican National Committee instead of government accounts, possibly in violation of the Presidential Records Act.

The Los Angeles Times reported that senior Justice Department officials prepared documentation to justify the firings after the dismissals. One Justice Department official threatened to "retaliate" against the eight fired U.S. attorneys if they continued to publicly speak about their dismissals.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who heads the Justice Department, denied he was involved in discussions about the firings. But Sampson testified that Gonzales was consulted at least five times and signed off on the plan to fire the U.S. attorneys. "I don't think it's entirely accurate what he [Gonzales] said," Sampson told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

SRA National and International Espionage
29 Apr 2007
SRA National and International Espionage

Not only do we strongly suspect SRA International
with its Mantas AML or anti-money laundering experience was used to spy and data mine European and other financial transactions through SWIFT of Brussels,Belgium,but spying and violating privacy for big bucks is what SRA International is all about.

That their worthless stock shares began appearing and were promoted by Bellador Group of Kuala Lumpur post 911 when the CIA that was greatly invested in SRA International would allow it !? That Peter Taylor and his crew of Bellador Group have dumped fraudulent penny stocks with U.S. origen or registration is proof enough that the folks at SRA International who live off the American dole and the W Bush corrupt regime,should be dismissed from 'competing' from U.S. government contracts and their history of spying and violating human rights should be exposed.

It is equally suspicious that the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission under Christopher Cox has allowed this to go on under his watch,post 911.
Almost tragi-comic to imagine him as head of the House of Representatives a short while ago telling
soldiers on their way to Iraq that there were
'weapons of mass destruction' to be found there.He
treats defrauded investors to the same types of lies.

Under his SEC 'leadership' a phoney U.S. penny stock 'securities'operation like Bellador can thrive laundering money with worthless unaudited U.S. penny stocks and operatae in Kuala KLumpur and Dubai,UAE ! And emails sent from as far as Cyprus presumably from a Benny Najarian warning me to remove my internet posts re 'FBME' that turens out to be 'Federal Bank of the Middle East'
where supposedly Mr.Taylor of Bellador Group of Kuala Lumpur or another with his same name and 'company' ran a scam involving Endovasc shares and Applied Micro Devices,AMD,shares through Union Bank of California and 'FBME' ! The scumbag SEC Chair who has been part of the Enron
connected Lambert and Watkins law firm of California aids massive fraud using his position and should resign like his colleague Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Private firm revealed to be spying on antiwar groups in California
Posted in the database on Wednesday, July 12th, 2006 @ 16:04:07 MST (217 views)
by Fergus Michaels World Socialist Web Site



The outsourcing of political intimidation

The Los Angeles Times recently revealed that a private corporation, SRA International, contracted by the California Office of Homeland Security (OHS), has compiled reports on demonstrations staged by political protest and antiwar groups in the state. The state monitoring of political opposition in California is representative of the broader assault on democratic rights taking place throughout the United States.

The Times wrote in articles published July 1 and 2 that it had obtained 2 of approximately 60 reports, which were prepared on a daily basis since March 2006. Political activities reviewed in the reports include an animal rights rally in San Francisco, a Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom gathering at a courthouse in Santa Barbara in support of an antiwar protester facing federal trespassing charges, and an antiwar demonstration in Walnut Creek. The reports also contained summaries of news articles about the Iraq war, animal rights activists and terrorism.

The reports were shared among the California attorney general’s office, the Highway Patrol and the OHS through the State Terrorism Threat Assessment Center, an organization the Times referred to as an “anti-terrorism partnership.” The OHS is a state agency that works in coordination with the federal Department of Homeland Security.

News of the existence of the reports prepared by SRA International was only made public on July 1 through the Times article. According to the newspaper, California Attorney General Bill Lockyer’s office already knew of the monitoring at least two months ago.

The immediate response of both the state attorney general’s office and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s office was to distance the state government from any implications of wrongdoing.

Lockyer spokesman Tom Dresslar told the Times, “When people exercise their first Amendment right to rally, march and protest, they should not have to worry that intelligence officials are watching them or their activities are in any way being painted with the terrorism brush.... Collecting information on protests has no legitimate anti-terrorism intelligence function. None. No intelligence agency has any need to maintain this kind of information.”

If the monitoring was of such concern to the attorney general, one might ask why it was that nothing was said to the public of the reports until their existence was leaked to the Times.

The governor’s communications director, Adam Mendelsohn, told the Times that Schwarzenegger had “no information and no knowledge that this was happening” and that “the governor feels that this particular information gathering is totally inappropriate and unacceptable.”

According to the Times, OHS officials maintain that such information was included only in the two reports obtained by the newspaper. Last Thursday, Schwarzenegger’s office released in a review to the media more than 80 intelligence reports prepared for the OHS in an effort to demonstrate the limited and aberrant nature of the program of state spying on protesters.

The severely circumscribed character of the review highlights that it by no means constituted an opening of the California OHS books. The Times reported on July 7, “Large sections of the reports shown to reporters had been removed,” that the OHS said the censored information was “‘law-enforcement sensitive’” and that “time for reviewing the documents was limited but the material visible to reporters contained no other information on political protests.”

In other words, the California OHS was able to reveal to the media only what it deemed appropriate and concordant with its own interests. According to the Times, the first intelligence report prepared by SRA International included information on the anti-immigrant group, the Minuteman Project. Subsequent reports contained no material on the group. Chris Bertelli, spokesman for the OHS, said, “The determination ...was made that this probably doesn’t have an impact on homeland security.” Also revealed was a censored report, dated June 22, which included a reference to “suspicious conversations at a mosque, San Diego, Calif.,” with no further elaboration. Bertelli claimed that the mosque conversations related to an ongoing investigation, according to the Times.

The media review was thus used as an opportunity to demonstrate the state’s willingness to condone the activity of the right-wing Minuteman Project, while emphasizing the necessity of monitoring “suspicious conversations” among Muslims.

The Times reported July 1 that Matthew Bettenhausen, the governor’s homeland security director, claimed that information on the protest groups was mistakenly included in reports made by SRA to the OHS. According to the director, an SRA report dated March 7 included summaries of 10 rallies set for later in the month. Listed were the date of the event, the purpose, the location, the expected number of people, the source of the information, and “officer safety issues.” Bettenhausen says that the OHS told SRA not to include such information in the future in its reports. However, an April 10 report contained similar material. Again, the request was made to exclude such material from reports to the OHS, and since then no such material has been included, according to Bettenhausen.

The statement that SRA International provided this information against the wishes of the California OHS can certainly be questioned. The Times July 7 article states that Alan Benitez, an official in the attorney general’s office, wrote in a letter to one of his superiors that SRA International was acting at the direction of the California OHS.

Indeed, information available on its web site reveals that SRA International is not an amateurish organization prone to make such mistakes, but a company with a long and established relationship with the US government.

“We have provided technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to federal government clients for over 27 years and have longstanding relationships with many of them,” the web site states. “We have served clients within the Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force; the Joint Chiefs of Staff; the Office of the Secretary of Defense; the Department of the Treasury; and the Federal Emergency Management Agency for over 20 years. We currently serve over 250 government clients on over 750 active engagements.”

SRA International has profited handsomely since September 11 and the so-called “war on terror” declared by the Bush administration. Its 2005 annual report lists total revenue of approximately $875 million, which has soared since 2000, when the figure was $300 million.

SRA International specializes in data and text mining. This process involves sifting through many textual forms, such as “e-mails, memos, company reports, and news wires,” in multiple languages, to produce “critical metadata, such as names of persons, organizations, places, and other important data.” This “mined” information is then utilized to provide links between “entities such as persons, organizations, places, artifacts, and other concepts of interest” and analyzed for “associated links within and across terrorist networks.”

According to SRA’s web site, the application of text mining for Homeland Security and Intelligence commonly includes: “Analysis of terrorist networks. Rapid identification of critical information about such topics as weapons of mass destruction from very large collections of text documents. Surveillance of the Web, e-mails, or chat rooms.”

The collection of data and compiling of reports for the California OHS on antiwar and political protest groups highlight the real motives behind the creation and maintenance of the Department of Homeland Security. Contrary to the near-constant hysteria whipped up by the mass media and official political figures about the danger of foreign “terrorists,” the greatest concern of the US ruling class is the actual and potential political radicalization of millions of US citizens disgusted with the war in Iraq, the multifaceted attack on democratic rights, and the severe levels of social inequality in the US.

The same essential motivations lie behind the enormous National Security Agency database established to track the phone calls of hundreds of millions of Americans and the collection by the US Treasury Department of data on international financial transactions. In both cases, the Bush administration uses the “war on terrorism” to justify the implementation of programs that constitute attacks on democratic rights.

In California, the state practice of equating political protest with terrorism, and the utilization of this pretext to gather information on and infiltrate protest groups and dissenting political organizations, have become well established since September 11, 2001.

In 2003, an undercover agent, Aaron Kilner, working for the Fresno Sheriff’s department and assigned to its “anti-terrorist unit,” infiltrated the California antiwar group Peace Fresno. The group had opposed the Iraq war and the Bush administration’s attacks on civil liberties in the US. Kilner’s real identity was only exposed after his death in a motorcycle accident.

Last year, the California National Guard was investigated for spying on a Mothers Day demonstration at the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Sacramento. As the WSWS reported, the unit was created in 2004 by Maj. Gen. Thomas Eres “as part of an expanding nationwide effort to integrate military intelligence into global antiterrorism activities” and was afforded “ ‘broad authority’ to monitor, analyze and distribute information on potential terrorist threats.”

The character of this latest revelation of government, or government-outsourced monitoring of oppositional political and antiwar protest groups illustrates that its ramifications extend well beyond the borders of California. If SRA International is engaged in mining masses of data and text on protest groups in California, what else is it preparing across the United States?

SRA International currently supports “the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the defense agencies, the Joint Chiefs of Staff organizations, the three military departments, the four military services, and the command structure,” its web site says. The corporation actively assists in and profits handsomely from the gathering and structuring of masses of data on US citizens, which can easily be used for the maintenance of a police-state apparatus in the US.
