CBS and Dan Rather Part of Plot to Terrorize Iraqis
26 May 2004
The Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse pictures scream 'remember 9/11' and intensify the fear in the hearts of Muslims all over the world. Could it be that CBS and Dan Rather were cooperating with the United States Government in the psychological operation of showing the pictures to Iraqis and terrorists to get them to turn.
Newspapers, Magazines and Broadcasters all over the world are saturating the world with pictures of prisoner abuse from Abu Ghraib. Story after story floods the public with details of the abuse along with pictures of naked men in various poses and horrific situations. To the Muslim this is sheer torture. One Iraqi was quoted as saying that it would have been better to kill the prisoners than torture them in such a sexual manner. One would think that journalists have an intense interest in pictures of naked men and are carrying out a plan to humiliate Muslims all over the world by continually bringing more and more pictures of humiliated Iraqis to the world press.

To Muslims, nakedness and especially nakedness in front of a strange woman is somewhere akin to being thrown into a burning lake of fire in it's torment and psychological impact. By continually flaunting these pictures throughout the world the message the American journalists send is; look what we have done to you Muslims for attacking us on 9/11. The over-abundant ranks of liberal journalists in America are shooting themselves in the foot with this strategy. I realize that they think that by continually reminding America of this debacle they undermine the political momentum of President George Bush and will cause his November election bid to fail but in the process they are putting the entire Muslim population of the world through a nightmare that seems to have no end.

The pictures are scaring the daylights out of Muslims who are at war with America. Especially when Democratic Congressmen and women say on worldwide news broadcasts that they think this is not just an isolated case but may be found throughout the coalition prisons in Iraq, Afghanistan and Gitmo. Liberal journalists are in effect playing right into the hands of someone who seems to be a lot smarter than the journalists. Publishing the pictures and spreading them all over the world strikes fear into the hearts of terrorists all over the world for fear that they too may someday be caught and treated in a similar manner.

Every picture screams 'remember 9/11' and intensifies the fear in the hearts of Muslims all over the world. It almost seems as if the press is cooperating in the psychological operation of showing the pictures to Iraqis and terrorists to get them to turn. It is obvious to me that the pictures were taken for that very purpose.

Gary Revel: Born in Florala Alabama June 29, 1049. Raised in Lower Alabama and Florida. Formed rock and roll band at 15, played guitar and sang lead. Graduated high school from Holmes County High School in Bonifay Florida. At 18 he joins the United States Navy and from there it's the music business in Hollywood California. Then New York City, Memphis Tennessee and finally Nashville Tennessee where Gary wrote songs, made recordings for various companies of his self-penned songs, played guitar in recording sessions for other artists and played various night clubs, concerts and lounges. Gary met attorney Jack and Mary Noel-Kershaw and began working with them in 1974. Jack's law office began representing James Earl Ray and by the time the House Select Committee on Assassinations began their inquiry Jack and Gary were actively engaged in an attempt to bring the case of King's assassination to court. James had never had a trial and this was something both Jack and Gary thought should be remedied. Gary began an aggressive investigation and soon the murder of his brother, cousin's husband and associate in the investigation followed.

Gary currently lives in the Los Angeles, California area and recently published his first of three autobiographical works planned. The book, 'To Live or Maybe Not' tells some of his story related to his military service in the US Navy during the Vietnam War Era and his investigation of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.
