Introducing Ghost Troop to the Army Inspector General

by Captain Eric H. May Saturday, Aug. 19, 2006 at 1:53 PM Houston, Texas

The strange near-death of an active Army Ghost Troop seems more than suspicious, as the unit leader, Captain May, explains in this most revealing report to the Army Inspector General. Are Ghost Troops, who serve on a mission of conscience to spread the word about the 911 set up -- and prevent future ones -- on the Bush League hit list?

Introducing Ghost Troop to the Army Inspector General

Dear General Green,

I am a former Army intelligence and public affairs officer who has spent the three years since the 2003 Battle of Baghdad Cover Up (BOBCUP) on a mission of conscience, as the commander of a cyber-intelligence unit known as Ghost Troop. Today we were a point of conversation on C-SPAN, and Monday we were on the cover of the Lone Star Iconoclast, the famous Texas newspaper with an extensive international and Congressional readership. We have a worldwide reputation in our field, and the Iconoclast story expresses that briefly with its story title: Ghost Troop -- The Art of Info-War.

The story link is:

The (PDF) cover link is:

This afternoon I spoke with Mr. McFadden, one of your action officers, about my prior contact with your IG's office, Sept. 5, 2003, when I alleged a cover up by the Army in the matter of the Battle of Baghdad. Mr. McFadden pointed out that your office had directed me to follow up with Army Public Affairs, and I have done so -- repeatedly -- via email, letters and phone calls to several officials, most prominently to director Paul Boyce. In all cases I have been stonewalled or lied to; in no case has there been any formal or informal reply.

Shortly after I initiated that IG complaint, Chase Untermeyer, a long-time friend and my best man, joined Ghost Troop as unit chaplain. Given that he had previously been the Asst. Secretary of the Navy (Reagan administration) and Bush 41 Transition Team Leader, Ghost Troop was duly honored. Even more impressive, he remained chaplain of the unit throughout the events that bring me to file this complaint, even after Bush 43 appointed him ambassador to Qatar in the summer of 2004. He remained my chaplain until I relieved him from his duties on Memorial Day, 2006.

Introducing Ghost Troop Sergeant First Class Buswell

In early 2006, SFC Donald Buswell, a Fifth Army intelligence NCO, became aware of our contrarian counter-terror analysis and activities, in which we have worked in tandem with the Houston Police Department and various Southeast Texas small city departments, asserting the premise that many of the strange petrochemical explosions in SE Texas were acts of official sabotage. SFC Buswell and I spoke at length about the situation, and his depth of experience (nearly two decades) along with his patriotism (he is a decorated Iraq war veteran) impressed me greatly, along with his deep Christian faith, which led him serve as a missionary in his pre-Army youth.

Ambassador Untermeyer was fully aware of our work in this area, since the first time we analyzed and predicted such an event was three weeks prior to the 3/30/2004 explosion at British Petroleum, Texas City, during his Ghost Troop chaplaincy. He is a key witness to our techniques and our success in that mission, as was Houston Police Department CID Sergeant John Karshner, who worked with me nearly daily in the lead-up to the event. Ghost Troop had additional successful predictions of the 7/28/2005 explosion of the same BP facility (predicted four weeks in advance); we were spot-on in predicting that there would be US DoD nuclear forces operating in the Texas City area on 1/31/06, something we were able to anticipate by two weeks, but which neither the Texas City media nor HPD CID knew about at all.

SFC Buswell followed our work (which is open to the public) in the Texas City nuke matter, and started a process of evaluation -- of Ghost Troop through our former and ongoing writings, interviews and publications, and of me directly through correspondence. He joined the unit -- which operates via Yahoo! user groups -- in April, 2006, and soon afterward was part of our efforts to alert the American People to "Chicago 911" exercises that had been set up in secret for May 2-4. Those exercises were only announced to the public the day after we caught Internet rumors of them, which I confirmed via Illinois and Indiana National Guard public affairs officers, and Chicago police public information officers.

The Near-Lethal Exxon-Mobil Mission

On May 13, 2006, SFC Buswell alerted me to a terror event in Exxon-Mobil's Beaumont headquarters -- and to the apparent attempt by the FBI to suppress the matter. In the following days I alerted Ambassador Untermeyer, sharing emails sent me by SFC Buswell as proof that my information was informed. I queried SFC Buswell about his motives for sharing information with me, and he made it clear to me -- then and repeatedly afterward -- that he was acting out of conscience, and in accordance with his oath to defend America, even if the enemies he perceived were domestic.

My email/article to Ambassador Untermeyer was published internationally: I knew that in taking this step I had exposed both SFC Buswell and myself to possible retaliation or assassination by those whom I suspected in a staged terror set up.

One week later, SFC Buswell nearly died from a pulmonary embolism, leading me to write another international article, again posted to Ambassador Untermeyer, dealing with the topic of Army whistle-blowers I thought to have been assassinated. It was in this article that I relieved "Chaplain Chase" (our Ghost Troop nickname for Ambassador Untermeyer) from his position among my Ghost Troop command:

Although I didn't know what had happened to SFC Buswell over the April 20-21 weekend (as he was incommunicado at Ft. Sam Houston's hospital), my own intelligence background gave me the intuition to take action that shows I was in tune with the realities. On Monday morning, April 22, I visited the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, where my legal counsel and I met with the legal staff of Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza, whom I presented with copies of such information as had been relayed to me by SFC Buswell:

To bring my relations with my former Ghost Troop Chaplain, Ambassador Untermeyer, up to date, he is doing fine. He was in our home town of Houston on July 11, 2006 -- and phoned me repeatedly over the next two days to set up a get-together. I was busy with analysis and writing at the time, and candidly, I didn't feel comfortable leaving my home during what was clearly (to those of us in Ghost Troop) the beginning phase of a war, perhaps a world war -- especially after what had happened to SFC Buswell. I noted the ambassador's invitation in an article published 7/12/06 in, one of my many international carriers:

As the last article makes clear, Ambassador Untermeyer and I had corresponded about my concern that there would be an attempt in early July to set up another petrochemical event. Our prediction date of 7/1/06 was wrong by one day, with Exxon-Mobil, Baytown, exploding on 7/2/06. Absent SFC Buswell's efforts to clue Ghost Troop in to the dangers of an Exxon-Mobil incident seven weeks earlier, I doubt we would have predicted and warned against the incident, and I believe that many American lives would have been lost. Further, I believe that the staged terror incident would have resulted in a dire escalation of the Mideast war.

Fifth Army's Retaliations against SFC Buswell

At the beginning of this month, 5th Army initiated a 15-6 investigation against SFC Buswell, the gist of which is that his relaying of information to Ghost Troop, his participation in the unit and his view that there were arranged events going on -- and in danger of going on still -- constituted disloyalty to the Army and nation. In light of what has happened to date, I believe the 15-6 investigation is being used as an instrument of retaliation against SFC Buswell.

Further, I believe that the pulmonary embolism from which he nearly died one week after giving me vital, probably life-saving information, was an assassination attempt. I note here that induced pulmonary embolism is indeed a common method of assassination, and that at Ft. Sam Houston, the home of the Army medical branch, there would be no shortage of means and expertise to carry it out.

I have been publishing a good amount of terror analysis in the Lone Star Iconoclast in the last two months, and my work describes the reasons I believe Southeast Texas is being set up for a staged terror event -- the thesis that led SFC Buswell to endanger his career and his life to help me stop a possible Exxon-Mobil set-up. I note that Southeast Texas lies within the administrative area of Fifth Army, and suspect their complicity in every Southeast Texas petrochemical explosion that Ghost Troop has predicted.

The Iconoclast first published my concern for the Southeast Texas "target area" on 6/26/06, a full week before the Exxon-Mobil explosion of 7/2/06: The Iconoclast, interested in my analytic model, later published the full counter-terror missions of Ghost Troop:

Conclusion and Emphatic Request for Assistance

My current concerns are both for SFC Buswell and for the nation. I note that two of the last four explosions in the Southeast Texas target zone have occurred within two days of the last two space shuttle launches, and Ghost Troop predicted both of those events well in advance. The next shuttle launch is scheduled for 8/28/06, and we are anxious about that date, which I have already highlighted in my most recent published analysis with the Iconoclast.

It isn't easy or pleasant to accuse the leaders of your country of criminal intent, from setting up terror events to setting up those who try to stop them, and it's not something I do lightly. Had it not been for officers like those of Dept. of the Army Public Affairs urging me to announce my mission as one of conscience, I would likely have avoided such controversial areas and accusations. Having been alerted to my duty by brother officers, though, I shall not fail to see it through.

To end as I began, Ambassador Untermeyer has served under my command in Ghost Troop, volunteering just as SFC Buswell did, and has been part of a Ghost Troop mission to publicize the danger of a staged terror attack in 2004 -- just as SFC Buswell was part of a similar mission in 2006. It is hard to believe that the former Asst. Secretary of the Navy and current ambassador to Qatar, who sits at the table with the top generals in CENTCOM and understand military duty implicitly, could have been improper in his Ghost Troop activities, and that SFC Buswell can be wrong for sharing those activities.

I urgently request your reply as soon as possible on the matters of SFC Buswell and the possible criminal activity of Fifth Army, both against SFC Buswell and the American People. The danger we perceived is growing, not diminishing, as the fortunes of the current administration deteriorate, and something that would "energize" the public becomes more and more desirable.

Best regards,

Captain Eric H. May, MI/PAO, USA

CO, Ghost Troop, 3/7 Cybercav+

Mission of Conscience / Patriots in Action

PS: I regret that the last time I dealt with the Army Inspector General's office resulted in an endless run-around, in which the IG sent me to Army Public Affairs, which evaded and prevaricated. Accordingly, I find it necessary to post this message to an interested public through my international network of mainstream and alternative media. I hope this irregularity causes you no concern. At this point my own concerns are for the public good, not administrative niceties.

Houston, Texas
