to a stunning report posted by a retired Navy
Lt Commander and 28-year veteran of the Defense
Department (DoD), the Bush administration's assurance
about finding weapons of mass destruction in Iraq
was based on a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
plan to "plant" WMDs inside the country.
Nelda Rogers, the Pentagon whistleblower, claims
the plan failed when the secret mission was mistakenly
taken out by "friendly fire", the Environmentalists
Against War report.
Rogers is a 28-year veteran debriefer for the
DoD. She has become so concerned for her safety
that she decided to tell the story about this
latest CIA-military fiasco in Iraq. According
to Al Martin Raw.com, "Ms Rogers is number
two in the chain of command within this DoD special
intelligence office. This is a ten-person debriefing
unit within the central debriefing office for
the Department of Defense."
information that is being leaked out is information
"obtained while she was in Germany heading
up the debriefing of returning service personnel,
involved in intelligence work in Iraq for the
DoD and/or the CIA. "According to Ms Rogers,
there was a covert military operation that took
place both preceding and during the hostilities
in Iraq," reports Al Martin Raw.com, an online
subscriber-based news/analysis service which provides
"Political, Economic and Financial Intelligence".
Martin is a retired Lt Commander (US Navy), the
author of a memoir called "The Conspirators:
Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider," and is
considered one of America's foremost experts on
corporate and government fraud. Ms Rogers reports
that this particular covert operation team was
manned by former military personnel and "the
unit was paid through the Department of Agriculture
in order to hide it, which is also very commonplace".
to Al Martin Raw.com, "the Agriculture Department
has often been used as a paymaster on behalf of
the CIA, DIA, NSA and others". According
to the Al Martin Raw.com story, another aspect
of Ms Rogers' report concerns a covert operation
which was to locate the assets of Saddam Hussein
and his family, including cash, gold bullion,
jewelry and assorted valuable antiquities. The
problem became evident when "the operation
in Iraq involved 100 people, all of whom apparently
are now dead, having succumbed to so-called 'friendly
fire'. The scope of this operation included the
penetration of the Central Bank of Iraq, other
large commercial banks in Baghdad, the Iraqi National
Museum and certain presidential palaces where
monies and bullion were secreted."
identified about $2 billion in cash, another $150
million in Euros, in physical banknotes, and about
another $100 million in sundry foreign currencies
ranging from Yen to British Pounds," reports
people died, mostly in the same place in Baghdad,
supposedly from a stray cruise missile or a combination
of missiles and bombs that went astray,"
Martin continues. "There were supposedly
76 who died there and the other 24 died through
a variety of 'friendly fire', 'mistaken identity'
and some of them-their whereabouts are simply
unknown." Ms Rogers' story sounds like an
updated 21st-century version of Treasure Island
meets Ali Baba and the Bush Cabal Thieves, writes
was a contingent of CIA/ DoD operatives, but it
was really the CIA that bungled it," Ms Rogers
said. "They were relying on the CIA's ability
to organise an effort to seize these assets and
to be able to extract these assets because the
CIA claimed it had resources on the ground within
the Iraqi army and the Iraqi government who had
been paid. That turned out to be completely bogus.
people were supposed to be handling it,"
Martin continues. "They had a special 'black'
aircraft to fly it out. But none of that happened
because the regular US Army showed up, stumbled
onto it and everyone involved had to scramble.
These new Iraqi "asset seizures" go
directly to the New US Ruling Junta. The US Viceroy
in Iraq Paul Bremer is reportedly drinking Saddam's
$2000 a bottle Napoleon-era brandy, smoking his
expensive Davidoff cigars and he has even furnished
his office with Saddam's Napoleon-era furniture.
