After all they are royalty,both Sheikh Sabah al Sabah of Kuwait and Queen Jane Harman of Venice, California,aren't they ? And now one of the Sheikh most loyal subjects and leader of the Kuwait orchestrated illegal Harman International NYSE pump and dump to defraud American small investors is dead.Just goes to show as that old saying goes dead men or dead subjects of the Sheikh can't tell tales.

unbelievable speed for that corrupt bureaucracy) that California Senator Jane and Sidney Harman's Harman International,would't mind stock manipulation and illegal 'pump and dump of Harman International and would have remained silent about if only the SEC did.

Al-Raya Chief Who Faced SEC Charges Is Found Dead

Hazem Al-Braikan -- a Kuwaiti trader accused by the Securities and

Exchange Commission of making more than million in trading profit

following the dissemination of false news about two U.S. companies --

was found dead in his home in Kuwait City, according to local media

reports Sunday.

The death came three days after Mr. Braikan, the chief executive of

Al-Raya Investment Co., and three related entities were sued by the

SEC for "highly profitable" and "suspicious" trades based on a fake

press release claiming that a Middle Eastern investment group planned


JANE HARMAN)International Industries Inc., an electronic-systems maker

in Stamford, Conn....

Mr. Braikan and Raya denied any wrongdoing in a statement published

Sunday in Kuwaiti newspapers.

Late Sunday afternoon, pan-Arab news channel Al Arabiya and a local

Kuwaiti channel reported that police had found Mr. Braikan dead in his

home in an upscale neighborhood.

Officials at the SEC, Citigroup, Harman and Textron declined to

comment Sunday. The two U.S. companies weren't accused of any

wrongdoing by the SEC.

In its lawsuit, the SEC accused Al-Raya, Bahrain-based United Gulf

Bank BSC and Kuwait's Kipco Asset Management Co. of amassing positions

in shares of one or both of the U.S. companies before the false

reports, allowing the investors to sell their shares at inflated


The three companies named as defendants in the suit are part of Kuwait

Projects Co., a holding company run by the son of Kuwait's ruler,

Sheikh Sabah al Sabah.


The U.S.SEC immediately stated the Harmans were free from all

responsibility although exactly how many shares they and other insiders may have unloaded is unclear.Still a Senator should not have these types of

conflicts whether with Israeli AIPAC or the Al Sabahs of Kuwait and

Jane Harman should resign.Just like Diane Feinstein who rose to power

in California only because a ex SF City Council member Dan White shot

the Mayor Moscone(and gay Council member Harvey Milk) dead and now she

is much wealthier having voted for the Iraq war she and hubby Richard

Blum have greAtly profited from.Why she builds mansions for herslf

just like W Bush said Saddam Hussein did on the blood of Americans. What a 'kosher' vampire.

And so although the Israeli American Zionist spy and AIPAC campaign money

'junkie'in our U.S.Senate,Jane Harman,(one of a number of

Israeli controlled Senators and Representatives) was welcomed to

Kuwait in 2005 by the Islamic Al Sabah royals who are crime partners

with the Bush family both in guarding the WTC and Dulles on 9/11/01

she and hubbie Sidney knew nothing of the illegal pump and dump of

their New York Stock Exchange listed Harman International until it was

too late.And now as you will see below her husband's scammy Harman

International 'public company' was illegally 'pumped and dumped' by

Kuwaiti connected Citicorp firm as well as an Al Sabah connected firm

and a major party to this fraud upon American investors orchestrated

from the Middle East with our own governments' collusion is only a

drop in the bucket as I have said for years.And how many Americans

even know the former U.S.NASDAQ is now owned and controlled from the

Middle East as well where the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum

has control and it is a wahabi moslem dictatorship you are giving

money to that allowed way over 0,000 to be sent to Mohamed Atta in

Venice, Florida pre 9/11.Becuse of te uproar over his plan to purchase

U.S.ports during the W Bush regime Fox News and CNN decided not to

report this deal for fear it might upset us.

And besides Barack Osama I mean Obama assures us it is a workers paradise.

I combined Jane Harman with International in the title of this post because California Senator Jane Harman's husband Sidney is the name

behind the Harman International 'public company' that exists on the

New York Stock Exchange whose shares have been the very recent focus

of an illegal 'pump and dump' fraud with direct ties to the Bush

family's Al Sabah partners,(Kuwait royalty that daddy of W - George

H.W.Bush - ordered us to protect and defend against Saddam Hussein in

the 1990 Gulf War).Lesser known Bush brother,Marvin, appears on SEC or

Securities Exchange Commission filings along with his cousin Wirt

Walker III and Mishal Yousef Saud Al-Sabah,' son of one Emir of Kuwait

and ex-son-in-law of the next Emir' in their Securacom security fraud,

(they had responsibilities to protect both Dulles Airport in Washington,D.C.

and the World Trade Center,WTC or Twin Towers),and'securities' or stock fraud,(see Margie Burns 2003 investigative report and review SEC filings at or the link immediately below.

I suppose Barack Osama I mean Obama or his Attorney General Eric

Holder can't read SEC filings and I know from experience the U.S.SEC

or Securities Exchange Commission won't help them.:

Mishal Yousef Soud Al Sabah Director October , 1997 Marvin Bush *

Director October 27, ...


Strange that a Kuwait based stock fraud operation that 'coincidentally'

targeted the 'poor' centi-millionaire Harmans in order to manipulate their company's New York Stock Exchange listed shares as though Harman International was a worthless penny stock company originated from Kuwait and has direct ties to the Al Sabah

royal family whose 'incompetence',(to be optimistic)or possible

pre-meditation led to the deaths of 3,000 in NY on 9/11/01 and by some

estimates over 1 million Iraqi and who knows how many Afghani deaths

so far.

And we must not forget,thanks to 'daddy' or George Herbert Walker Bush

and his crime family the Al Sabahs and the Saud royalty of Saudi

Arabia whose country provided 15 of the 19 9/11 highjackers

'coincidentally',some of who received money from them by way of

Jonathan Bush's Riggs Bank pre 9/11,are the beneficiaries of huge sums of money and oil from the impoverished and terrorized Iraqi population because thanks to their Bush allies they still receive 'war

reparations' from Iraq even though their countries weren't even

scratched during the Gulf War of 1990 !

And the Kuwaitis were so confident, (before the U.S.SEC stepped in at

unbelievable speed for that corrupt bureaucracy to charge them for

stock manipulation and illegal 'pump and dump of Jane and Sidney

Harman's Harman International),that the Harmans would't have minded

and would have remained silent about it if only the SEC did.And

perhaps even stranger,as I just mentioned above,is the fact that the

911 WTC massacre and Marvin Bush,

(another corrupt idiot son of ex U.S. President George Herbert Walker

'Poppy' Bush who also put his idiot closet homosexual son W in the

White House),is also directly connected to the Al Sabah royalty of

Kuwait crime family through Securacom that was also a stock fraud(that

was covered up in part by ex Texas Republican Senator Dick Armey with

the blessing of House former House Speaker Tom DeLay among others.

If only we could get Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's azzkizzer

and Jane Harman's AIPAC attorney Lanny Davis' attention away from

aiding in the terrorizing of poor Hondurans for buku bukks from the

sleezy Honduras Bank and stock fraud against Americans such as NFI

that like Harman's Harman International have been involved in the frauulent 'naked short selling' claim,he could put in a kind word for

the Kuwait Al Sabah family that Hillary and Bill and the Bush crime

family all adore.The far right Saudis,Kuwaitis'Qatar and Oman and

Dubai royalty after all have turned out to be the Zionist wingnuts who

Lanny Davis represents,best friends.

They have had a role in many crimes together such as 'guarding' Dulles

Airport on 911 through Securacom with Marvin Bush that was a stock

fraud in its own right.Also Al Ali Al Sabah of that family who heads the Kuwait National Guard was a major

share holder of Skyway Communications penny stock pump and dump of

Florida that had Homeland Security connections or were able to paint

their airplanes as if they did and White House connections because

they were able to invite investors there and Skyway was also the owner

of the DC-9 that was captured by the Mexican army in April,

2006 at Ciudad Del Carmen,Campeche with over 5 tons of cocaine aboard

in route to U.S. from South America! The Bushes and the Al Sabahs are

not like you in me or the CEOS of Skyway the Kovars and

American-Israeli Miami attorney Michael Farkas who founded the

'company' and also funds right wing Jewish settlements on the West

Bank of Palestine ! Now you would think the Islamic Al Sabah royalty

of Kuwait would have nothing to do with a 'white semite'or Jew of

European origen who funds settlers on occuoied Palestinians lands.

Think again.This is the world of the elites where right wing

criminals ally with one another - their lower class fellow

co-religionists be damned.These are real ZioNazis ands Islamfascists

and Christo-fascists who do indeed meet and greet at elite annual

meetings such as Bilderbergers or just more official G8,etc, meetings

working in the U.S. with our elite government of the international

super wealthy's blessings.The CIA,,is on their side.The CIA

should be dismantled and my phoney 'fiscal conservative' ex Santa

Cruz California Congressman Leon Panetta retired.

Yep get off the pot CIA Chief or DIA Leon Panetta if you don't gotta

shiit or plan to do something about this shiit.....Note that Barack

Obama and Leon Panetta are appealing to U.S. District Judge Alvin K.

Hellerstein of New York the same judge who has admitted he is an

avowed Zionist and thus should be disqualified from all 9/11 cases to

deny freedom of information from the public who need it in order to

make informed political decisions.Judge Hellerstein has denied all

families who waived the U.S.government financial settlements in order

to know the truth about what happened to their loved ones for years

now and continues to do so.Leon Panetta like Barack Obama and Judge

Hellerstein are enemies of democracy and allies of Saudi,Kuwait,Dubai and UAE Islamofascists and Chinese dictators and Israeli Zionists in my

opinion.And continue the 9/11 cover up for W Bush and Dick Cheney and

their allies named above.

And Panetta not only covers up for the post 9/11 terrorism of the Bush

regime but also for CIA stock fraud of In-Q-Tel and possibly British

'intelligence'criminals who promoted CIA's SRA International shares in

Kuala Lumpur through Bellador Group.

Also Bellador of presumed Brit Peter Taylor promoted and sold

Republican Party connected China Wireless shares as well as phoney biotechs Biophan and Stanford University and Israeli

Grin brothers and James Dale Davidson

of Steve Forbes' National Taxpayers Union and Beltway banker David P

Summers connected Endovasc shares that ripped me off.What


Did I say CIA Chief Leon Panetta was my Santa Cruz California

Congressman and I used to respect him ?

CIA Urges Judge To Keep Bush-Era Documents Sealed

Al-Qaeda Could Use Contents, Agency Says

By R. Jeffrey Smith

Washington Post Staff Writer

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

The Obama administration objected yesterday to the release of certain

Bush-era documents that detail the videotaped interrogations of CIA

detainees at secret prisons, arguing to a federal judge that doing so

would endanger national security and benefit al-Qaeda's recruitment


In an affidavit, CIA Director Leon E. Panetta defended the

classification of records describing the contents of the 92

videotapes, their destruction by the CIA in 2005 and what he called

"sensitive operational information" about the interrogations.....

Although Panetta's statement is in keeping with his previous

opposition to the disclosure of other information about the CIA's

interrogation policies and practices during George W. Bush's

presidency, it represents a new assertion by the Obama administration

that the CIA should be allowed to keep such information secret.....He

asked U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein to draw a legal

distinction between the administration's release in April of Justice Department memos authorizing the harsh interrogations and the CIA's

desire to keep classified its own documents detailing the specific

handling of detainees at its secret facilities overseas.

Bush-Linked Company Handled Security for the WTC, Dulles and United

by Margie Burns

Security, Secrecy and a Bush Brother

By Margie Burns

A company that provided security at the World Trade Center, Washington

D.C.'s Dulles International Airport and United Airlines between 1995

and 2001 was backed by a private Kuwaiti-American investment firm

whose records were not open to full public disclosure, with ties to

the Bush family.

Marvin P. Bush, a younger brother of George W. Bush, was a principal

in the company from 1993 to 2000, when most of the work on the big

projects was done. But White House responses to 9/11 have not publicly

disclosed the company's part in providing security to any of the named


Public records indicate that the firm, formerly named Securacom, had

Bush on its board of directors. He was also listed as a significant

shareholder. The firm, which is now named Stratesec, Inc., is located

in Sterling, Va., a D.C. suburb, and emphasizes federal clients. Bush

is no longer on the board.

Bush has not responded to repeated telephoned and emailed requests for comment.

The American Stock Exchange delisted Stratesec's stock in October

2002. (Securacom also had a contract to provide security at Los Alamos

National Laboratories, notorious for its security breach.)

According to its present CEO, Barry McDaniel, the company had an

ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center "up to

the day the buildings fell down." Yet instead of being investigated,

the company and companies involved with it have benefited from

legislation pushed by the Bush White House and rubber-stamped by

Congressional Republicans. Stratesec, its backer KuwAm, and their

corporate officers stand to benefit from limitations on liability and

national-security protections from investigation provided in bills

since 9/11.

HCC Insurance Holdings, Inc., a reinsurance corporation on whose board

Marvin Bush sat as director until November 2002, similarly benefits

from terrorism insurance protections. (Bush's first year on the board

at HCC coincided with his last year on the board at Stratesec.) HCC,

formerly Houston Casualty Company, carried some of the insurance for

the World Trade Center....

The former CEO of Stratesec is Wirt D. Walker III, who is still

chairman of the board....

In December 2000 -- when the presidential election was determined Stratesec added a Government Division...Stratesec now has "an open-ended contract with the

General Services Administration (GSA) and a Blanket Purchase Agreement

(BPA) with the agency that allows the government to purchase materials

and services from the Company without having to go through a full


The company lists as government clients "the US Army, US Navy, US Air

force, and the Department of Justice," in projects that "often require state-of-the-art security solutions for classified or high-risk

government sites." .....

The White House opposed an independent commission to investigate 9/11 until after the terrorism insurance protections and protections for security companies had safely passed Congress. It has also quietly

intervened in lawsuits against United Airlines in New York, brought by

relatives of the victims.

Marvin Bush joined Securacom's Board of Directors in 1993, as part of

new management hired when the company separated from engineering firm

Burns and Roe. The new team was capitalized by KuwAm, the D.C.-based

Kuwaiti-American investment company. Bush also served on the Board of

Directors at KuwAm, along with Mishal Yousef Saud al-Sabah, Chairman

of KuwAm and also a Director on Securacom's (Stratesec's) board.

The World Trade Center and the Metropolitan Washington Airport

Authority -- which operates Dulles -- were two of Securacom's three

biggest clients in 1996 and 1997. (The third was MCI, now WorldCom.)

When, following the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, the Port

Authority of New York and New Jersey began its multi-million-dollar,

multiyear revamping of security in and around the Twin Towers and

Buildings 4 and 5, Securacom was among numerous contractors hired in

the upgrade....

According to SEC filings, Securacom/Stratesec acquired the .3

million World Trade Center contract in October 1996...

Barry McDaniel, CEO of the company since January 2002, declines on

security grounds to give specific details about work the company did

at the World Trade Center...

Two of the hijacked planes took off from Dulles Airport, and the other

two were United Airlines planes.

(I.E.-ICTS INTERNATIONAL Israelis Menachem Atzmon,Ezra Harel other ex Israeli military officers)....

Dulles Airport, obviously, is another matter. Dulles is regarded as

"absolutely a sensitive airport," according to security consultant

Wayne Black, head of a Florida-based security firm, given its

location, size, and the number of international carriers it serves.

Black has not heard of Stratesec, but responds that for one company to

handle security for both airports and airlines is somewhat unusual. It

is also delicate for a security firm serving international facilities

to be so interlinked with a foreign-owned company: "Somebody knew

somebody," he suggested, or the contract would have been more closely


In this context, retired FAA special agent Brian F. Sullivan is angry,

and eloquent. "You can have all the security systems in the world, but

the people behind the systems make the difference." The Bush

administration, says Sullivan, "spit in the faces" of the victims'

families, in pushing for last-minute protections for foreign-owned

security companies (in the Homeland Security bill)...

Stratesec got its first preventive maintenance contract with Dulles

Airport in 1995....

Like other specialists, Professor Dale B. Oderman, in the Aviation

Technology Department at Purdue, concurs that Dulles "was considered a

very high profile target"....

Stratesec continued to refer to "New York City's World Trade Center"

as a former client through April 2001. It listed Dulles Airport and

United Airlines as former clients through April 2002.

From 1993 to 1999, KuwAm -- the Kuwait-American Corporation -- held a

large and often controlling interest in Securacom. In 1996, KuwAm

Corporation owned 90% of the company, either directly or through

partnerships like one called Special Situations Investment Holdings

and another called "Fifth Floor Company for General Trading and

Contracting." ...

Marvin Bush was reelected annually to Securacom's board of directors

from 1993 through 1999....In 1996, Bush acquired 53,000 shares at 52

cents per share. Shares in the 1997 IPO sold at .50. Records since

2000 no longer list Bush as a shareholder.

Mishal Yousef Saud Al Sabah, the chairman at KuwAm, also served

on Stratesec's board from 1991 to 2001. Walker and Al Sabah had major

stock holdings in each other's companies. Their sons also held shares

in both companies....

The Saudi Arabian embassy, the Kuwait embassy, and KuwAm have office

suites in the Watergate complex, where both Stratesec and Aviation

General held their annual shareholders' meetings in 1999, 2000, and 2001....

Incidentally, Riggs Bank -- where the Saudi Princess Al-Faisal had her

checking account -- also has a large office in the Watergate. Given

that Jonathan Bush, the president's uncle,is a Riggs executive,it is

difficult to understand any obstacle for US authorities pursuing the

recently reported "Saudi money trail." The princess's charitable

activities were processed through Riggs, but attention focused on the

Saudis seems not to extend to the US bank they used.

McDaniel was asked in a brief telephone interview whether FBI or other

agents have questioned him or others at Stratesec about the company's

security work in connection with 9/11. The concise answer: "No." ..

According to a spokesman in an FBI regional office, by October 2001,

"the investigation [of 9/11] is being coordinated at the national

level directly from the White House."

In all the public expressions of sorrow or pity for the

victims, it would have been natural, surely, for the president to say

something along the lines of "Why, my own brother was part of that

business. He and all of us are heartbroken" etc etc. But such comment

has not been forthcoming...


Israeli investigator acknowledges Israeli involvement in 9/11 at highest levels:

Olmert, Atzmon, Abraham and 9/11

by Barry Chamish

July 5, 2006

In 1989 the Likud Party was investigated by the state comptroller for massive fraud. The two chief accountants of the party were Menachem Atzmon and Ehud Olmert. Somehow, Atzmon was convicted of fraud and Olmert wasn't.

In 2006 Olmert was elected in his way to be prime minister of Israel and Atzmon was forgotten. Well, not by everyone. The enemies of Israel's government remembered him and his once-close ties to Olmert. I was a guest on a Republic Broadcasting Network's program with a true anti-Israel bigot, Christopher Bollyn. I knew him and had not admired him in the case of the murder of Utah Congressman, Wayne Owens. He had changed the background of the story, making Yasir Arafat the victim of Israeli chicanery. But we'll get there soon enough.

He was repeating his process, turning Israel's attack on Gaza as unrelated to Hamas' murder and I was defending Israel, when he caught me offguard. "Do you know Menachem Atzmon?" he asked. I answered, "He was Likud Treasurer along with Olmert in the late 80s," I answered. Then he playfully announced, "Did you know he was personally responsible for security at Logan and Newark Airports on 9/11?" That I DIDN'T know.

Here is Bollyn's report:


Olmert, who has long been tarnished by allegations of financial crimes, was implicated in a financial scandal involving forged receipts for donations to the 1988 Likud campaign, of which he was co-treasurer. This affair culminated in the March 1996 conviction of three other Likudniks, including Menahem Atzmon, the Likud treasurer. Olmert was also later indicted in the Likud affair, but was acquitted.

During the 1970s Olmert had worked in the law firm owned by another Atzmon, Uzi Atzmon.

Menahem Atzmon, convicted in Israel, went on to become the founder and head of International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS), the parent company of Huntleigh USA, the airport security firm that ran passenger screening operations at the airports of Boston and Newark on 9/11.

Huntleigh USA is a wholly owned subsidiary of an Israeli company called International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS) International N.V., a Netherlands-based aviation and transportation security firm headed by
