Part 5 of VisionTV's "The Great Deception": Bush Admin's Link to Big Oil and 911

by IMC Hamilton Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2002 at 6:11 PM



VisionTV's "The Great Deception" Questions the Bush Administration's Links to the Oil Industry and to September 11th

February 11th Program

George W. Bush and the Oiligarchy

VisionTVs fourth look at The Great Deception concentrated on the Bush administration and its direct ties to the oil industry. With the peaking of oil production only a few years off, host Barry Zwicker asked whether the present structure of Bushs cabinet has anything to do with the present campaign to control the worlds resources. Zwicker asks, "So just who are these people?":

  • George W. Bush was CEO of Harken Energy
  • George H. W. Bush is on the board of directors at the Carlyle Group which is heavily invested in oil and weapons, and is involved with the Bin Laden family.
  • Dick Cheney is a former CEO of Halliburton Oil.
  • Donald Evans, Bush's Commerce Secretary, was with Colorado Oils Tom Brown Inc..
  • Zalmay Khalilzad, previous aide to Unocal, created Unocals risk analysis on its proposed Afghan gas pipeline, and is now the liaison to the new Afghan leader Hamed Karzai, also a former consultant to Unocal.
  • Condoleeza Rice, Bushs national security adviser, served as Chevron Corporations principal expert on Kazakhstan while on their board directors.

To all of these telling facts, Zwicker adds, "A General Motors president once said: 'Structure is strategy in slow motion.' The structure of this cabinet shows, in my opinion, the primacy of oil interests."

February 4th Program

The third segment in the "Great Deception" series of commentaries by VisionTVs Barry Zwicker dealt with Osama Bin Laden and his links to international intelligence organizations more specifically the CIA, Saudi intelligence and the ISI (Pakistani Intelligence). Zwicker focused on three books that detail Bin Ladens on-going links to the CIA and ISI, that began during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan during the early 1980s:

Based on his discussion of the content of these books, Zwicker asks if Bin Laden is still employed by the CIA and if he is simply being used as a scapegoat.

January 28th Program

The January 21st commentary was the first of a series of particular questions that Mr. Zwicker will pose every Monday night at 10:30 PM (ET). The January 28th Mediafile program was entirely devoted to dealing with the corporate medias handling of the September 11th attacks and the questions that are not posed. Mr. Zwickers commentary focused on the question of whether or not the Air Force was ordered to stand down and to ignore official procedures during the highjackings. He mentioned Andrews Air Force Base and how its website was suspiciously updated the after the attacks to exclude the mention of its two fighter jet squadrons whose duty it is to protect Washington D.C. and the surrounding area at all times.

First Program in the Series

On Monday, January 21st, VisionTV became the first North American television network to address the inconsistencies in the official version of the events of September 11th. In a daring 8 minute commentary on Visions Mediafile program, host Barry Zwicker asked many crucial questions that have been absent from the mainstream medias coverage since 9/11. One particular question that Zwicker addressed was if Americas top military and intelligence officials are capable of such an act of state-terrorism against their own people. His answer proved that criminal and deceptive measures, under the codename of Operation Northwoods, had been planned to terrorize the American people into favouring a full-scale invasion of Cuba after the failure of the Bay of Pigs in 1962. James Bamfords book, Body of Secrets, was the particular focus of this discussion.
