The Bush Administration's Fraudulent Wars In Afghanistan And Iraq & The Bogus War On Terror In The USA Which Has Been Used To Destroy The Constitution

Author Richard Behan has done an excellent job of identifying the critical events which led up to the attacks on 9-11-2001, including the addition of 16 members of the Project For A New American Century to the Bush Administration shortly after George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and their PNAC minions *stole the election in 2000.

*See more on the Bush criminal syndicate's theft of not one, but two national elections in 2000 and 2004 --

To say that the Project For A New American Century has been running the United States since January of 2001 is not an understatement.

"On January 30, 2001, 10 days after taking office, President Bush convened his National Security Council for an hour-long meeting. It was a triumph for the PNAC."

The fact that the 2000 presidential election ended as it did with Bush's own brother Jeb overseeing these events as the governor of Florida, while Jeb Bush, himself, was a member of the Project For A New American Century, only leads to further suspicion that the Bush family helped the PNAC to pull off one of the greatest and treasonous scandals in United States History, by denying Al Gore his rightful place as America's 43RD President, and installing George W. Bush as the PNAC's new puppet dictator.

In his book, Behan leads us chronologically through the creation of the PNAC back in 1992, their desire to attack Iraq for its vast oil reserves, and failure to convince then President Bill Clinton to go along with their plan.

He also cites the Bush Administration's *failed negotiations with Afghanistan's Taliban, to break their agreement with Argentina's Bridas Corporation, to build the Trans Afghanistan pipeline, and to make a new contract with America's Unocal corporation (one of the "4 Sisters") which would then build an oil pipeline from the oil rich Caspian Basin across Afghanistan.

Had the Bush Administration been able to come to an agreement with the Taliban in regard to this pipeline, the chances are that the attacks on 9-11 may not have been necessary, and that this "inside job" could have been avoided.

The attacks on 9-11 were engineered by the PNAC through the Bush Administration (and with the approval of the hierarchy within the U.S. Military Industrial Intelligence Media complex), for the express purpose of gaining access to the rich oil reserves in the Caspian Basin, and controlling them, by building and maintaining the aforementioned pipeline.

This along with gaining access to Iraq's wealth of oil is why Americans were attacked on 9-11. And why these attacks were an inside job perpetrated by the PNAC, through George W. Bush, and PNAC members, Jeb Bush, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld and the rest of their treasonous PNAC cronies.

After 15 Years The PNAC Has Realized Its Goals

With U.S. dominance in both Afghanistan and Iraq, the PNAC has now begun to realize much of the agenda which it set out to accomplish when its members formed in 1992.

The PNAC's manifesto: "Rebuilding America's Defenses" offers further evidence of their intentions to attack Iraq nearly a decade before the attacks on 9-11 took place.

Excerpted from this manifesto:

"The United States is the world's only superpower, combining the preeminent military power, global technological leadership, and the world's largest economy.... America's grand strategy should aim to preserve and extend this advantageous position as far into the future as possible."

"Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."

Through a pattern of the most abject deception, the PNAC and Bush Administration have conned the American people into believing that they must surrender their Constitutional freedoms in order to combat the war on terror. However, to those who have researched the PNAC and Bush Administrations' collusion in the attacks on 9-11, and their subsequent and illegal wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, it has become clear that the PNAC and their Bush Administration lackeys are the real terrorists whom Americans must now focus on.

The Pattern Of PNAC/Bush Administration Deception

"With the Taliban removed from power, Mr. Hamid Karzai is installed by the U.S. as head of an interim government. Subsequently, he is elected President of Afghanistan -- Mr. Karzai is a former consultant to the Unocal Corporation."

"The first U.S. envoy to Afghanistan is Mr. John J. Maresca -- Mr. Maresca is a former Vice President of the Unocal Corporation."

"The next Ambassador to Afghanistan is Mr. Zalmay Khalilzad -- Mr. Khalilzad is a former consultant to the Unocal Corporation. He is a founding member of the Project for the New American Century."

"On August 2 of 2001, the last negotiation with the Taliban ended with a terse statement by Christina Rocca of the State Department. 'Accept our offer of a carpet of gold,' she said, 'or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.'"

"On February 8, 2002, four months after the carpet of bombs, Presidents Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan and Perves Musharraf of Pakistan sign a new agreement for the pipeline. The Bridas contract is now moot. The way is open for Unocal."

Are you beginning to see a pattern here?!

The PNAC/Bush Propaganda Machine

"In August of 2002, President Bush appointed the 'White House Iraq Group.' Its members were primarily political operatives or public relations/communications people. Their role was explicitly to market the war, to persuade the American people -- and eventually the Congress-- of the need to invade Iraq.

The group operated in strict secrecy, sifting intelligence, writing position papers and speeches, creating 'talking points,' planning strategy and timing, and feeding information to the media.

This was the nerve center, where the deliberate campaign of propaganda was created, packaged, and promulgated.

Its work was described in a Washington Post story (August 10,2003) with a telling headline: 'Depiction of Threat Outgrew Supporting Evidence.'

The group chose to emphasize the nuclear threat over all others, overstating , exaggerating, or misstating available intelligence. The campaign of lies and deception was deliberate - and successful.

In 2008, the Center for Public Integrity published a detailed report of the propaganda campaign. It tallied a total of 935 deliberate lies and charted their distribution through time, from 9/11/2001 until after the invasion of Iraq. A huge increase in the frequency of lies took place in September, 2002 - when the White House Iraq Group launched its program.

On September 17, 2002, President Bush adopted formally the belligerent stance first articulated in the Defence Planning Guidance of 1992 and refined by Rebuilding America's Defenses in 2000. On that day Mr. Bush signed The National Security Strategy of the United States of America.

Pre-emptive war was now formalized: it was the policy of the United States."

So who were the Americans who helped the Project For A New American Century and Bush Administration to perpetrate this treasonous campaign of deception?

"The White House Iraq Group" consisted of the following members:

Karl Rove

Karen Hughes

Mary Matalin

Andrew Card

James Wilkinson

Nicholas Calio

Condoleezza Rice

Stephen Hadley

"Scooter" Libby

Michael Gerson

The Investment/PSA Package & Hydrocarbon Law -- SCAM

"The 'investment/PSA package' in the hydrocarbon law grants immensely profitable access for international oil companies to 81% of Iraq's undeveloped crude. The companies in position to exploit the law are Exxon/Mobil, Chevron/Texaco, Royal Dutch/Shell, and BP/Amoco."

Otherwise known as the "4 Sisters" of the oil industry.

"The hydrocarbon law in now the keystone of the Bush Administration's war in Iraq. It is the evident culmination of the Administration's intention stated in the February 3, 2001 memorandum '... regarding the capture of new and existing oil and gas fields.'"

"President Bush made passage of the hydrocarbon law a mandatory 'benchmark' in his speech of January 10, 2007 announcing the troop 'surge'"

"He spoke of the law as if it had been a product of a 'democratic' government in Iraq. In fact, the provision transforming the Iraqi oil industry, the 'investment/PSA package,' was developed in his own State Department five years previously.

By insisting on passage of the law, Mr. Bush is asking the Iraqi Parliament to legalize the virtual theft of much of the country's crude oil.

The United States Congress, controlled by the Democratic Party, is complicit in this. The benchmark was included in the war funding bill it passed and President Bush signed on May 25, 2007.

In a letter dated May 18, 2007, twenty four U.S. citizens' groups had asked Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid to drop the oil law benchmark from the funding bill. The letter was ignored."

Bush Administration Most Criminal In U.S. History

The Bush Administration is complicit in treasonous crimes against the American people, including the destruction of our Constitutional Republic, the premeditated murders of nearly 3000 of our own people in the attacks on 9-11, the deaths of more than 4000 American soldiers since the attacks on 9-11, and over a million Iraqi and Afghan men, women and children.

Moreover, the following statements made by Richard Beyhan in his book about this treasonous fiasco are perhaps the most chilling aspect for why the Bush Administration attacked Afghanistan and Iraq, while using a myriad of carefully crafted smokescreens in which to prevent the American people from ever learning that such a deception of themselves as a sovereign nation, had even taken place:

"But the terrorists' hijacked airliners were not the vanguard of a naval armada, an air force, and a standing army committed to full scale war, which Pearl Harbor represented in 1941.

9/11 was a criminal act of international terrorism. It was unprecedented in magnitude, but it was not a military invasion, threatening the safety of the entire nation. Crimes of international terrorism are typically resolved by international police action. There are many examples such actions succeeding in the past.

Police action, however, would not achieve the strategic objectives of the intended incursions into Afghanistan and Iraq. Only military action -- conquest and occupation -- would do that.

So 9/11 was equated with Pearl Harbor, and fear-mongering became the chosen mode of governance. It was an extreme violation of the public trust, but it served perfectly the Administration's need to justify warfare.

Warfare was guaranteed when President Bush insisted terrorists and states that harbor terrorists would be treated without distinction.

The Global War on Terror was born. Labeling the preplanned invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq as a 'Global War on Terror' was the mega-lie, the context for the propaganda campaign to follow. Since declaring the Global War on Terror, the Administration has bombarded the American people with a virtual mantra:

This is the struggle of our lifetime; we are defending our way of life from an enemy intent on destroying our freedoms. We must fight the enemy in the Middle East, or we will fight him in our cities.

Constant repetition of carefully orchestrated propaganda persuaded the American people -- and finally the Congress-- to support the Global War on Terror. With fearful images of 'mushroom clouds' (Condoleezza Rice) and 'hundreds of thousands' of prospective casualties (Vice President Cheney), the Administration nurtured the fear and developed the support.

The mantra went unchallenged by the mass media and by both political parties.

Then it became encoded: 'Support our troops.' American flags and yellow ribbons appeared throughout the nation."

"Only much later did well-respected public figures challenge the fear mongering head on. Wesley Clark, a Rhodes Scholar, retired 4-star general, and former NATO commander, attacked the mantra and the fear-mongering in a May 28, 2007 speech.

Al-Qaeda is not the existential threat to the U.S. the Bush Administration has portrayed, Clark said. 'We've lived five years under the threat of fear, and the threat has been manipulated.'"

"The first action of the Global War on Terror would be an attack on Afghanistan, which the Administration had been intending to launch since long before 9-11.

The simultaneous targeting of Osama bin Laden and Afghanistan's governing Taliban was a perfect expression of the Administration's 'melding' of security policy and international energy policy.

Apprehending bin Laden would be a pure play of security policy. And the removal of the Taliban from power would achieve an objective of energy policy.

The Bridas Corporation's contract to build the Trans Afghanistan pipeline would be nullified. The way would be open for Unocal to build it, instead."

Richard Beyhan's free E-book on the Bush Administration's war on terror fraud is 117 pages long. However, the print is large and there are many photos and illustrations that make for a quick read; one which will give all Americans a much greater understanding of the PNAC "business deal" that took place within the White House back in 2001, as well as the enormous cost that we as a nation will continue to pay for this High Crime Of Treason for many decades to come.

See Richard W. Behan's E-book entitled: The Fraudulent War: The facts about the Bush Administration's 'War on Terror.'

"The U.S. Invasion of Iraq was not preemption; it was... an avaricious, premeditated, unprovoked war against a foe who posed no immediate threat but whose defeat did offer economic advantages"

-- Former CIA Operative Michael Scheuer

"Michael Scheuer served 22 years in the CIA. He was the agency's foremost expert on Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda."

In 2004, Scheuer resigned from the CIA in protest to the complete fraud that the Bush Administration perpetrated on the American people, in regard to the bogus war on terror and their Illuminati orchestrated war for oil.

Bush Preaches Democracy, Proposes Tyranny
The Fraudulent War on Terror

Americans had best rethink the "war on terror" while they still have the liberty to do so. For all of President Bush's blah-blah talk about bringing democracy to the world, the Bush administration has proved that it is no friend of liberty at home.

The Bush administration has violated constitutional principles, US law, and the Geneva Conventions as no previous administration has done. Here is a short list of the Bush administration's crimes:

Spying without court warrants on Americans in violation of both the US Constitution and the FISA statute.

The denial of habeas corpus, attorney-client privilege, due process, and Geneva Conventions protections to those, American or foreign, designated without evidence as terrorists or enemy combatants.

The justification and use of torture to coerce confessions and the kidnapping of foreign nationals who are sent to be tortured in foreign prisons.

The initiation of military aggression against states based on intentional deception by the Bush administration of the US public and the United Nations, and the intentional fabrication of "evidence" to justify unprovoked aggression against sovereign states, which is a war crime under the Nuremberg standard established by the US.

Violation of the oath of office to defend the US Constitution by practically every member of the Bush administration and Congress.

Bush has assaulted the separation of powers and the rule of law with "signing statements" and "executive orders" that President Nixon's White House Counsel John Dean says are commands that treat the co-equal branches of government and the electorate as subservient to executive authority. In April 2006, Boston Globe reporter Charlie Savage listed 750 laws "challenged" by the Bush administration. Not even the demonized president of Iran claims to be above the law.

Genocide against the people of Iraq where one million Iraqis have died as a result of Bush's invasion and several million Iraqis are displaced persons.

Massive civilian casualties in Afghanistan, which is a form of genocide in which military force is routinely applied to unarmed noncombatants.

Massive corruption in which no-bid contracts are issued to Republican corporations in exchange for kickbacks to political campaigns.

The theft of two national elections as documented in books by Mark Crispin Miller and Greg Palast.

The Bush administration has even conducted Stalinist show trials against innocent Muslim charities as part of its propaganda to make the American people fearful that they are surrounded by hostile terrorists. In December 2001 President Bush declared the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development to be a "terrorist organization" and seized the charity's assets. Bush put the charities' officials on trial as terrorists. Six years later on October 22, 2007, after years of investigations and two months of testimony by who but "Israeli intelligence agents" (according to the New York Times), the US government's case fell apart in the courtroom.

One of the jurors said that the case " was strung together with macaroni noodles. There was so little evidence."

Georgetown University professor of constitutional law David D. Cole said the case "suggests the government is really pushing beyond where the law justifies them going."

While committing these unprecedented crimes, President Bush has claimed the moral high ground despite having lied to the American people and despite devastating two countries in the name of "making the world safe from terrorists." When people in Iraq and Afghanistan are asked who are the terrorists, they answer that it is the Americans.

The Bush administration has not been held accountable for any of its crimes. By failing to hold government accountable to law, the Constitution, and the American people. the opposition party and the corporate media have abandoned their responsibility to protect freedom and democracy in the United States.

There can be no democracy where there is no government accountability, and there is no government accountability in the United States--except, of course, to the Israel Lobby.

Now the Bush administration wants to take away the American people's freedom to travel within their own country by airplane. Not content with an 80,000 "no fly" list, a subset of a 500,000-750,000 "watch list," the Bush administration's Transport Security Administration has proposed new rules that will require Americans to get government permission 72 hours in advance prior to being allowed to board a domestic flight.

The TSA justifies this extraordinary violation of our constitutional rights on the grounds that 90 to 93 percent of all travel reservations are final by then.

So what?!

And what of the 7 to 10 percent of flights that the TSA estimates are not on the books 72 hours in advance? These are family emergencies and critical business deals. What does the TSA care if a member of your family dies while you await the government's permission to fly?

Any agency of the government that can propose such a tyrannical regulation should be abolished. The TSA's mentality shows it to be a far greater threat to Americans than are terrorists.

Even without the "permission to fly" rule, the TSA's practices are ridiculous and unjustified. The confiscation of tooth paste and unopened bottles of perfume, the harassment of US military officers in uniform, the harassment of old people struggling with their walkers, of mothers struggling with small children--none of this makes any sense except in terms of getting Americans accustomed to harassment as a citizen's duty to government and to train a cadre to conduct warrantless searches of fellow citizens.

The no-fly list itself is absurd. If a known terrorist were to show up at an airport, he would be arrested, not refused permission to fly. Anyone else who can clear security like other passengers has every right to fly.

Set aside the violation of the Constitution and the Soviet-style tyranny of the loss of the freedom to travel and consider merely the practical aspect of the proposal. What American wants his travel plans dependent on a government bureaucracy capable of putting US Senator Ted Kennedy on the "no fly" list and capable of issuing US visas to two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers six months after they allegedly died in the 9/11 events?

If we believe the official story, 9/11 itself reveals a government totally devoid of any competence whatsoever.

The "war on terror" is fraudulent. The cruel war and the deceptive vocabulary that protects it are a cover for expanding US and Israeli hegemony in the Middle East and for constructing a functioning police state at home. A country in which people cannot make airline reservations without the government's permission is not a free country.
