The Netherlands/FPF - update Sept. 29th - 2002 -

During the talks in Moscow between the US Undersecretary Grossman and Russian minister for Foreign Affairs Ivanov, also the fate of pilot Michael Speicher was mentioned. Which prompted minister Ivanov afterwards to confirm : " And yes, we will also help looking for survivors in Iraq...". But Speicher's death was proven a long time ago by a joint US, International Red Cross and Iraqi forensic team that visited the crash site.

Lieutenant Michael Speicher, a US Navy pilot whose jet fighter was shot down over Iraq in January 1991, died in the crash, contrary to some US reports. In a very blunt attempt at propaganda again in June, the Washington Post newspaper, quoting US Senate investigation sources, said that Speicher was still alive. It is well known that Speicher's death was "proven" by a joint US, International Red Cross and Iraqi team that visited the crash site. Speicher was declared "killed in action". Western observers say that talk about Speicher being alive "are false allegations made by Mr Rumsfeld's officers in order to justify the unjustifiable : using it as an extra psyop-pretext for bombing and searching Iraq".


The miraculous resurrection of pilot Michael Speicher started officially on March 11-02 when US Vice President Dick Cheney is visiting British "fellow war traveler" ; PM Tony Blair in London. The "Moon"-paper

-Washington Times - well known to journalists for its co-operation with secret services - reports to the surprise of many - that "British intelligence has

provided evidence" that a US pilot, Navy Lieutenant Commander Michael Speicher, who was shot down in the Gulf War, is still alive and in captivity in Iraq. 11 years and a Red Cross report later ? But, already on Wednesday April 3d - 2002 - just before the 20.00 GMT news - the BBC announced : "We will soon start reporting on the missing american pilot - Michael Speicher - who apparently has been seen alive in Iraq". Even if the BBC is curtailed by the MOD's

"D-Notice"-censorship, it still had some authority which can be used, and - like now in wartime - very often is misused.

Iraq - reacting immediately to avoid worse - said it is known that Speicher is dead - and officially again invited a US delegation, the International Red Cross, the European Union, the UN, and - included in the delegation - American journalists - to investigate the case in Iraq itself. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld retorts: "I don't believe very much what the regime of Saddam Hussein puts out. They're masters at

propaganda". As Defense Secretary - living in "a glass house", Rumsfeld would be clever not throwing


But it's an important step and twist in a tale that began a few months after Commander Speicher's F-18 was shot down January 17th 199, at the very start of

Operation Desert Storm to drive Iraqi forces from Kuwait.

This is officially Phase One in the miraculous resurrection of the dead pilot. Speicher. He was declared killed in action in 1991, but was reclassified as : "MIA - missing in action" by the Pentagon last year. After information from an Iraqi defector.(?) Nobody has ever seen the defector nor "evidence" this far. It should be very easy however to fake some pictures - satellite or others - as has been done many times before, to start overt and covert wars.

Captivity in Iraq ?

The propaganda tricks now following are, according to the CIA handbook : all pro-US-Israel major media announce that Speicher's whereabouts have to be investigated. Possibly friends, spooks and parents are interviewed : " We have to save him before they torture him !". After being dead for 11 years...?

"Eyewitnesses", said to be in Baghdad, confirm in fluent English that he may fall in the hands of Osama bin Laden's murderous Al Quaida-gang if he is not saved immediately ! And everything shameful is done : "In the interest of the Nation". Meaning the "United States/Israel Empire", and a few - bought -"allies".

The goal : Baghdad will be bombed into as much

rubble as Kabul and surroundings, and the oil reserves are in "good hands".

One wonders whether we'll ever see an actor play the resurrected Michael Speicher. Like in the movie "Wag the Dog".Probably only foggy images on a bad quality video movie. Why does the CIA c.s. always buy old video cameraswithout auto focus ? So we are not able to see the difference between Speicher, president Bush, Blair or Osama bin Laden ? But, that is up to the necrophile NSA spooks and their "resurrection team".

One wonders what Speicher's parents and family think about the whole NSA/CIA/Mossad-scheme : maltreating the memory of their dead son to trigger yet another bloody US energy war in the Third World ?
