********BIO-WARFARE********



*FLU PANDEMIC*

Europe races to shore up bird flu defences:

http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/L06422768.htm

Flu oddities (updated 9/6/05):

http://www.legitgov.org/flu_oddities.html





********NEWS********





*GILLIGAN, RIP*

Bob Denver dies:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/06/AR2005090600991.html

--or--

http://snipurl.com/hi28

(NJS still wonders why everyone he grew up with thought so highly of Gilligan and the awful TV show.)





*INTELLECTUAL DISCOURSE: 'CONSPIRACY THEORIES'*

State Department website informs US public that "conspiracy theories" are not to be trusted:

usinfo.state.gov/media/Archive/2005/Jul/27-595713.html





*NEW ORLEANS: ETHNIC CLEANSING*

Xymphora - Ethnic cleansing II:

http://xymphora.blogspot.com/2005/09/ethnic-cleansing-ii.html

(I assume that 9/11 was Ethnic cleansing I.)

Sean Penn accuses Bush amid rescue chaos:

http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/articles/PA_NEWA12843661125997597A0?source=PA%20Feed&ct=5

--or--

http://snipurl.com/hi26





*NEW ORLEANS: COVER-UP*

Bush launches inquiry and puts himself in charge of it:

http://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/article310798.ece

Cheney to visit Gulf Coast. God only knows what this man is going to do there:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/katrina/story/0,16441,1564257,00.html





*NEW ORLEANS: CIVIL LIBERTIES*

US agency blocks photos of New Orleans dead:

http://www.alertnet.org/thenews/newsdesk/N06101601.htm





*NEW ORLEANS: DISASTER ORIGIN*

Katrina wasn't the problem, it was the levees:

http://judicial-inc.biz/katrina.htm

New York Times drops hints that the levees were dynamited:

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/03/national/nationalspecial/03mayor.html



It turns out that what breeched wasn't levees.

It was SEA WALLS. Two feet of concrete, steel faced, rubble fill behind.

This is the very least likely to "fail" particularly after the fact.

Therefore, the flooding of New Orleans was an INTENTIONAL act by those out to genocide the city.

They made the Mayor give the Forced Evacuation Order. People to be dragged out like the Gaza settlers, only this time they get to use lethal force. (the Webfairy)





*NEW ORLEANS: BRIDGE SHOOTING*

Contractors killed in New Orleans:

http://apnews.excite.com/article/20050904/D8CDN3K80.html

(what's remarkable about this story is it reads like the Iraq war coverage. We're told these men had guns, with no explanation for why contractors would bring them to work. Also, we're told that "five or six" people have been killed; as if the detail is not significant.)



Kurt Nimmo, 'Army kills New Orleans Contractors':

http://kurtnimmo.blogspot.com/

"...Incomprehensible things are happening in New Orleans. For instance, the Ministry of Homeland Security will not allow the American Red Cross and other non-government agencies and relief organizations to deliver food..."



"In one version, they are army contractors that were shot.

In the other, the army contractors are fine, and 'gunmen' were shot.

In both, the police are blamed.

My betcha is it was triggerhappy soldiers fresh from Fallujah. (Webfairy)"





*LEVEES: OFFICIAL RESPONSE*

Three days of delays by Army corps of engineers:

*NEW ORLEANS: TOLL*

http://www.t-g.com/story/1116806.html

About a million in US still without power:

Bush rules out significant federal aid to hurricane victims

http://www.wsws.org/articles/2005/sep2005/hurr-s01.shtml





*HURRICANE KATRINA: MYSTERIES*

Why did the levees fail?

More importantly, why didn't any emergency response center (e.g., Homeland Security) drop sandbags to close the breached levees?

What was the source of the explosions that took place in New Orleans a couple of days ago?

What is the source of the massive oil spill now in the Mississippi River.

Why did the Federal government refuse to drop food and water to New Orleans residents for days?

...

How many government scams (e.g., Oklahoma city bombing, 9/11, Katrina) will it take before US citizens wake up and reject the pseudo-alternative and mainstream media?





*HURRICANE KATRINA: FOX TV*

Fox TV airs program called "Oil Storm" which depicts, in documentary-style, the catastrophic destruction of New Orleans via runaway hurricane. In the film gas prices rise sharply and an economic upheaval takes place.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0461695/

http://www.walltowall.co.uk/projects/project.asp?ProjectID=254

http://www.fxnetworks.com/shows/originals/oilstorm/main.html

"...The premises of the television-movie were as follows:

1. A super hurricane strikes New Orleans and the Gulf oil installations.

2. Disorder erupts and martial law is declared. The area is evacuated.

3. Oil supply is disrupted catastrophically and prices rise astronomically

4. Economic chaos and depression result

How prescient – indeed clairvoyant – this major television event turned out to be.

And so close to the actual events themselves...(Lynn)"





*DENIED AID*
