“Donald Rumsfeld $2.3 trillion” is all anyone needs to search for
on the Internet to discover why the country might really be broke.
Current Green Party presidential candidate and former U. S. Rep. Cynthia Mckinney
had the following questions for former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
“Mr. Secretary: according to the Comptroller General of the United States,
there are serious financial management problems at the Pentagon, to which Mr.
Cooper alluded. Fiscal Year 1999: $2.3 trillion missing. Fiscal Year 2000, $1.1
trillion missing. And DoD is the number one reason why the government can’t
balance its checkbook. The Pentagon has claimed year after year that the reason
it can’t account for the money is because its computers don’t communicate
with each other. My second question, Mr. Secretary, is who has the contracts
today, to make those systems communicate with each other? How long have they
had those contracts, and how much have the taxpayers paid for them?” (March
11, 2005, House hearing on the 2006 budget for the Department of Defense and
America is still waiting for the answers.
If elements within the Pentagon were pillaging trillions of taxpayer dollars
almost a decade ago, what has been lost since?
The amount of $2.3 trillion is more than three times the $700 billion the former
CEO of Goldman Sachs, Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson, wants to give
out to his pals on Wall Street.

Machiavelli wrote, “There are many who think a wise prince ought, when
he has the chance, to foment astutely some enmity, so that by suppressing it
he will augment his greatness.”
This tactic has often been used or considered. Germany was blamed during World
War I for an unprovoked attack on the “Lusitania,” which was carrying
arms to the British, and the Vietnam War was expanded based on a false report
on Aug. 4, 1964, of an attack in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Operation Northwoods, a 1962 military plan to fake a Cuban attack on the U.S.,
proposed shooting down a civilian plane with Americans onboard.
Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, representing more than 560 professionals,
has released a report stating that the collapse of the World Trade Center towers
and World Trade Center Building 7 showed the signs of controlled demolition,
including a rapid and symmetrical fall, clouds of pyroclastic (heated) smoke
and debris, and residue of the incendiary agent thermate in dust samples taken
from the site. Building 7 had no collisions or fuel fires, yet fell in free-fall
speed into its own footprint. In similar buildings, fire has produced only softening
in the steel, never total collapse.
In a Dec. 28 letter, FBI Assistant Director for Counterterrorism Michael Heimbach
wrote that the group “presents an interesting theory, backed by thorough
research and analysis.” Would a full investigation prove that Machiavelli’s
statement also describes the events of 9/11?
