Both Dr Kelly & Victor Pasechnik are now dead...

November 21, 2001: World-class microbiologist and high-profile Russian defector Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, 64, dies of a stroke. Pasechnik, who defected to Britain in 1989, succeeded in producing an aerosolized plague microbe that could survive outside the laboratory. He was connected to Britain's spy agency and recently had started his own company. "In the last few weeks of his life he had put his research on anthrax at the disposal of the [British] Government, in the light of the threat from bioterrorism.

From the United States, the story moves to England. On November 23rd, Dr. Vladimir Pasechnik, a former microbiologist for Biopreparat, the Soviet biological-weapons production facility was found dead. The Times was the only newspaper to provide an obituary for Dr. Pasechnik, and said:

"The defection to Britain in 1989 of Vladimir Pasechnik revealed to the West for the first time the colossal scale of the Soviet Union's clandestine biological warfare programme. His revelations about the scale of the Soviet Union's production of such biological agents as anthrax, plague, tularaemia and smallpox provided an inside account of one of the best kept secrets of the Cold War. After his defection he worked for ten years at the U.K. Department of Health's Centre for Applied Microbiology Research before forming his own company, Regma Biotechnics, to work on therapies for cancer, neurological diseases, tuberculosis and other infectious diseases. In thelast few weeks of his life he had put his research on anthrax at the disposal of the Government, in the light of the threat from bioterrorism." - Ian Gurney

Kelly..."did communicate in an e-mail the day before his death that there were "many dark actors playing games." Ironically, that e-mail was to Judith Miller, the New York Times reporter and CFR stalwart who probably was one of those dark actors.

Miller, along with two other women was a close confidante of Kelly's. The second was Olivia Bosch, a long-time functionary of the CFR's sister organization in the U.K. the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA). The third was a U.S. Army intelligence agent named Mai Pederson. "

Suicide & the Baha'i faith

The act of suicide is strongly condemned in the Baha'i teachings, and alongside the other world religions, it is "forbidden". However, Baha'is do not adopt a condemnatory attitude toward those who commit suicide.

Such an act does not mean that the person "has ceased to be a Baha'i" or lose their entitlement to a Baha'i funeral and memorial service.

The Baha'i teachings on suicide need to be understood in the context of beliefs on the purpose of life and the afterlife. For Baha'is, the purpose of life is to develop one's spiritual capacity and, in so doing, contribute to "an ever-advancing civilization". Baha'is believe in an afterlife, of which little is known. It is thought to be a spiritual existence, and those that die retain their individuality in the afterlife and potentially continue to develop spiritually.

Baha'is believe that the Ultimate Reality, what some religions call God, is omniscient and merciful, and will deal with every soul justly. Baha'is have no knowledge of the nature by which the Ultimate Reality will deal with individuals: "The manner in which the Supreme Being, in His Justice as well as in His Mercy, will deal with every individual soul is a mystery unknown to us on this earthly plane". In some cases, the Baha'i teachings indicate that God will be merciful and forgiving. For example, in response to an early Baha'i who committed suicide, the Baha'i writings stated: "He will be immersed in the ocean of pardon and forgiveness and will become the recipient of bounty and favour."

AQ Khan, WMD to Iraq, Iran, Libya and North Korea?

...An AP wire, Vienna, dated, February 3 2004 states:

"The nuclear black market that supplied Iran, Libya and North Korea is small, tightly knit and appears to have been badly hurt by the exposure of its reputed head, the father of Pakistan's nuclear programme, diplomats and weapons experts told The Associated Press.

The dramatic televised confession came after he met Pakistan's President Musharraf, as both parties attempted to draw a line under the damaging affair. "


"European diplomats also said it appeared unlikely that President Pervez Musharraf sanctioned the deals. But with Khan close to previous governments, senior civilian and military officials before Musharraf's take over in 1999 likely knew of some of the dealings, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity in interviews."

diplomats and weapons experts??? WHO?

men in white coats...who KNOW things...!

"Dr Khan's motivation in the sale of the technology --
without which, none of the three countries involved
could have developed nuclear weapons programmes --
is said by Dawn's "authoritative sources" to have been personal gain."

"Twelve days ago, a 747 aircraft chartered by the United States government landed at Dulles Airport
here carrying a single piece of precious cargo: a small box containing warhead designs that American
officials believe were sold to Libya by the underground network linked to Abdul Qadeer Khan,
the creator of the Pakistani bomb."

"....Investigators are also trying to determine whether the network of
suppliers and experts sold a similar weapons design to North Korea. "

The discoveries in Tripoli are causing intelligence agencies and investigators
to revisit some older cases, including one involving Iraq
which documents suggest was offered nuclear technology before the start of the Persian Gulf war of 1991."

ISIS, whose sources are quoted... concludes on the 4th Feb 2004

Although the IAEA investigation in the 1990s was inconclusive in its effort to confirm the authenticity of this offer, these documents provide additional indicators that Pakistani scientists may have offered assistance to a number of countries not only in uranium enrichment but also in nuclear weapon design and fabrication. The possibility that Pakistanis offered assistance in designing and building nuclear weapons to many countries, including Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, and Syria, is an extremely disturbing new development. This possibility must be investigated thoroughly. ISIS

"Saddam Hussein was an active partner in Pakistan's nuclear weapons programme not just once, but twice. Iraq funded Pakistan's clandestine nuclear weapons project in the early 1980s in return for uranium-enrichment technology. A decade later, the two were back in bed. This time they were busy trading money for an A-bomb design."


"Iraq already had a cumbersome, Hiroshima-type atomic bomb design.
Saddam Hussein wanted a smaller bomb that could fit on the top of a Scud missile.

The man who offered to sell Iraq one was A.Q. Khan.

According to a report written in 1998 by West Asian expert Yossef Bodansky:
"One of the Iraqi documents retrieved after the [1991] war includes a scrawled
footnote describing an offer made to Iraqi intelligence by an unidentified Pakistani
offering to establish contacts with 'senior figures in Pakistan's nuclear programme
who were willing to help President Saddam Hussein's regime to manufacture a bomb."

Of course, the United States must be prudent in how it exercises its power. But we cannot safely avoid the responsibilities of global leadership or the costs that are associated with its exercise. America has a vital role in maintaining peace and security in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. If we shirk our responsibilities, we invite challenges to our fundamental interests. The history of the 20th century should have taught us that it is important to shape circumstances before crises emerge, and to meet threats before they become dire. The history of this century should have taught us to embrace the cause of American leadership.

The project for a new American century

"On the morning of September 11, Pakistan's Chief Spy General Mahmoud Ahmad, the alleged "money-man" behind the 9-11 hijackers, was at a breakfast meeting on Capitol Hill hosted by Senator Bob Graham and Rep. Porter Goss, the chairmen of the Senate and House Intelligence committees."

Was Pakistans Dr. Strangelove, Khan, Discovered by Valerie Plame?

Plame, on the other hand, has posed primarily as an "energy analyst." But her good looks and athleticism allow her to adopt other guises, such as shortstop of an international coed baseball team starring a hard-drinking, hard-throwing Iraqi defector named "Curveball." For a measly million dollars, Plame bought Curveball's detailed sketches of Saddam's mobile bioweapons labs and turned them over to Colin Powell just in time to prevent a global bio-catastrophe.

Her most dangerous assignment by far was to infiltrate the nuclear proliferation network of A.Q. Khan. Imagine Khan's shock when he opened his copy of Vanity Fair some weeks ago, saw Plame's gorgeous face, and realized that the woman who had been his personal yoga instructor from 1994 to 1997 wasn't an anti-imperialist, vegetarian Peace Corps dropout named Sara Sunflower, but a sticky-fingered CIA spy who stole the secrets that led to the eventual unravelling of his ring. - Dennis Hans

Ex-PM says Dutch let Pakistani nuclear scientist go at CIA's request

THE HAGUE (AFP) Aug 09, 2005 - At the request of the CIA, the Netherlands let go the father of Pakistan's nuclear program Abdul Qadeer Khan who worked in the country between 1975 and 1986, former Dutch prime minister Ruud Lubbers told Dutch public radio on Tuesday. Khan, who admitted in 2004 that he had leaked nuclear secrets to Iran, North Korea and Libya, worked as an engineer in the Netherlands at Urenco, an uranium enrichment plant.

In 1975, Lubbers the then minister of economy, received information that Khan was stealing nuclear secrets about the enrichment of uranium. He was never indicted for his activities because the CIA had asked the Netherlands to let him go, Lubbers told VPRO radio.

"The American intelligence services preferred not to arrest the man but to let him go. They thought: 'give us all the information but do not hold that man. Let him go, we will follow him and get more information'," Lubbers said.

That same year Khan probably felt his cover was blown because he never returned from a holiday to Pakistan. Finally the Dutch authorities did open an investigation in 1979 that led to Khan being sentenced in absentia in 1983 to four years in prison. His conviction was overturned on appeal because of procedural mistakes. At that time there were still possibilities to continue with the proceedings against Khan but the authorities again backed off at the request of the CIA, according to Lubbers, who had by then become prime minister.

"We were in the middle of the Cold War, debating placement of medium range missiles here. At that time I thought the final word about (Khan's prosecution) was not in The Hague but in Washington," he said. - Spacewar

Sibel Edmonds began working for the FBI shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, translating top-secret documents pertaining to suspected terrorists. She was fired in the spring of 2002 after reporting her concerns about sabotage, intimidation, corruption and incompetence to superiors. She first gained wide public attention in October of that year when she appeared on 60 Minutes on CBS and charged that the FBI, State Department, and Pentagon had been infiltrated by Turkish individuals suspected of ties to terrorism. On October 18, 2002, at the request of FBI Director Robert Mueller, Attorney General Ashcroft imposed a gag order on Ms. Edmonds, citing possible damage to diplomatic relations or national security. Edmonds is a key witness in a pending class-action suit filed by 9/11 families against the government. - antiwar.com

Lost In Translation

the impenetrable wall of a judge in Washington throws out Sibel Edmonds' lawsuit before he even bothers to hear any evidence, all on the basis of protecting government secrets whose exposure could damage 'national security', and, in a neat trick, helpfully goes on to explain that he couldn't give further reasons as to do so would also expose such secrets (which is kind of ironic as the thrust of Edmonds' case is that the FBI translation system was threatening national security, and Ashcroft's moves to cover this up means that the same problem still continues; by the way, it being a small world, Edmonds' attorney, Mark S. Zaid, is also Mai Pederson's attorney); - xymphora.blogspot.com

'Leaks' as Damage control

On Aug 5 Asher Karni, the Israeli citizen who was indicted for trying to ship nuclear triggers from the United States to the A. Q. Khan network in Pakistan, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge for DC Ricardo Urbina to a mere three years in federal prison. It is an amazing sentence when one considers that U.S. citizen Jose Padilla is being held indefinitely in a U.S. military prison, without trial, for allegedly trying to set off a "dirty" radiological bomb, without any evidence being provided by the government. -

The Plame leak damaged a major CIA investigation linking senior Bush administration officials to WMD proliferation. U.S. intelligence insiders have pointed out that the White House is using "Rovegate" and "Who in the White House said what to whom?" as a smoke screen to divert attention away from the actual counter-proliferation work Mrs. Wilson and her Brewster Jennings & Associates team were engaged in. The arrival of Timothy Flanigan as Patrick J. Fitzgerald's boss is likely related to the mountains of evidence Fitzgerald has now collected to indict senior White House officials, particularly, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for criminal conspiracy in exposing a sensitive U.S. intelligence operation that was targeting some of their closest political and business associates. Libby, it will be recalled, was the attorney for fugitive global smuggler and Clinton-pardoned multi-billionaire Marc Rich, someone who has close ties to the Sharon government and Israeli intelligence. It is no coincidence that FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds uncovered nuclear material and narcotics trafficking involving Turkish intermediaries with ties to Israel at the same time Brewster Jennings and the CIA's Counter Proliferation Division was hot on the trail of nuclear proliferators tied to the Israeli government of Ariel Sharon and the A. Q. Khan network of Pakistan.

Plame and David Kelly attacked in the same week

Kelly Knew he would die?

David Broucher, British ambassador to the disarmament conference, reported to the inquiry a conversation he recalled having with Dr Kelly at a Geneva meeting in February 2003 (the date and location of which are subject to debate). Broucher had asked Kelly what would happen if Iraq were invaded, and Kelly had replied, 'I will probably be found dead in the woods.'[HI] Professor Hawton dismissed this as 'pure coincidence' and without relevance to Dr Kelly's death. [HI] Others have strangely twisted it to represent a premonition of his impending suicide. Taken at face value, it could as readily be interpreted to mean he was aware of some threat to his safety.


"...many of the stories the Times published during in the run-up to the war... shared a common feature. They depended at least in part on information from a circle of Iraqi informants, defectors and exiles bent on "regime change" in Iraq, people whose credibility has come under increasing public debate in recent weeks. Complicating matters for journalists, the accounts of these exiles were often eagerly confirmed by United States officials convinced of the need to intervene in Iraq. Administration officials now acknowledge that they sometimes fell for misinformation from these exile sources.

The most prominent of those exiles was Ahmad Chalabi, "an occasional source in Times articles since at least 1991," who "introduced reporters to other exiles" and "became a favorite of hard-liners within the Bush administration and a paid broker of information from Iraqi exiles." And one of the most prolific chroniclers of Chalabi's views and those of his Iraqi National Congress camp was Times reporter Judith Miller, who wrote or co-wrote at least nine of the "problematic" stories the Times cited in its mini culpa. - slate.msn.com

Iraqi National Congress

Judith Miller apparently knew David Kelly rather well. She had quoted him in several of her earlier articles going back to 1998, and according to the Globe article referenced above, Kelly had helped her write her book about Weapons of Mass Destruction published several years before.

One would have thought that Miller would have regarded her relationship with Kelly as well as her contact with him just before his death as "scoop" material. Instead she failed to let her readers even know that she had enjoyed a long and close association with him. Even more odd, she left out the provocative e-mail he had written her just prior to his death while writing about a more innocuous one sent to an "associate."

I find Miller's behavior in the Kelly story rather odd, to say the least. Unlike the Plame story, Miller did ultimately write about Kelly, but she camouflaged her own involvement and left much of what she knew out of the piece.

One military officer, who says that Miller sometimes "intimidated" Army soldiers by invoking Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld or Undersecretary Douglas Feith, was sharply critical of the note.

An Army officer, who regarded Miller's presence as "detrimental," said: "Judith was always issuing threats of either going to the New York Times or to the secretary of defense. There was nothing veiled about that threat," this person said, and MET Alpha "was allowed to bend the rules."

New York Times reporter jailed

Time magazine reporter agrees to testify about sourcing

Note the Date: Thursday, July 7, 2005 Posted: 0322 GMT (1122 HKT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A federal judge ordered New York Times reporter Judith Miller jailed for contempt of court Wednesday for refusing to testify to a grand jury investigating the leak of a CIA operative's name. She was taken into custody immediately. Miller faces up to four months in jail, the length of time before the term of the federal grand jury in the case expires.

"We have to follow the law," U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan said. "If she were given a pass today, then the next person could say as a matter of principle, 'I will not obey the law because of the abortion issue,' or the election of a president or whatever. They could claim the moral high ground, and then we could descend into anarchy."

Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper, who also faced jail time, was spared confinement after agreeing to testify. Outside the courthouse, he defended his decision, saying the source had released him from confidentiality that day. "That source gave me a personal, unambiguous, uncoerced waiver to speak to the grand jury," Cooper told reporters.

He would not disclose the source.

White House Admits It Used Bad Intelligence

"The White House acknowledged for the first time today that President Bush was relying on incomplete and perhaps inaccurate information from American intelligence agencies when he declared, in his State of the Union speech, that Saddam Hussein had tried to purchase uranium from Africa," the New York Times reports. Monday evening after Bush had departed for Africa, White House officials issued a statement in spokesman Ari Fleischer's name that "made clear that they no longer stood behind Mr. Bush's statement" made in January's State of the Union address. As of yet, no one has taken responsibility for including in the speech the false claim about Iraq's attempt to acquire enriched uranium from Niger. The acknowledgment came after weeks of questions and contradictory answers in the US and UK about intelligence used by the Bush and Blair administrations to justify an invasion of Iraq." - Source: New York Times, July 8, 2003Pr watch

The betrayal of Dr Kelly - a set up

Olivia Bosch

Former Unscom arms inspector who had a close professional relationship with Dr Kelly

George Wright - Thursday September 18, 2003

Hutton inquiry stage one

Ms Bosch's evidence on September 4 directly contradicted Andrew Gilligan's claim that David Kelly volunteered the name of Alastair Campbell in connection with the "sexing up" of the September war dossier.

During one of the daily conversations held by the pair before he died, Dr Kelly told her of being "taken aback" by Gilligan's determination to pin the blame on someone. Dr Kelly had said that Mr Campbell's name was suggested by the BBC reporter, thus throwing into question Gilligan's assertion that it was Dr Kelly who first mentioned Mr Campbell. As a civil servant, Dr Kelly knew he could neither confirm nor deny Mr Campbell's name, so he replied "maybe", Ms Bosch told the inquiry. Gilligan did not mention Mr Campbell in his Today report of May 29, but wrote in The Mail on Sunday on June 1 in relation to the discussion with Dr Kelly about the alleged exaggeration of the dossier: "I asked him how this transformation happened. The answer was a single word: 'Campbell'."

Ms Bosch, who is a senior research fellow at Chatham House and was a UN inspector in Iraq in 1996, said although she and Dr Kelly had not met as weapons inspectors they spoke frequently on the phone and met at conferences. She told the inquiry the scientist appeared to be under pressure and she believed she had unwittingly prompted him to come forward and admit having an unauthorised meeting with the BBC reporter.

Dr Kelly wrote the letter admitting he had met Gilligan five days after she had told him she found the journalist's evidence to the foreign affairs select committee interesting.

Key question: You have mentioned one occasion when Dr Kelly found his name in the press, which he was upset by, which perhaps is the article I took you to. Did Dr Kelly around this time, April or May, around that type of time, did he have any further discussion with you about his contacts with the press?

Key answer: Well, he mentioned in his - I am not sure of the time sequence but if I go through here. It was another time towards mid May he told me he had an unauthorised meeting with Andrew Gilligan, someone he had met a couple of times before but did not know that well. And he said he was - he was taken aback by the way Andrew Gilligan tried to elicit information from him. I said: Yes, but that is what journalists do. He understood that, but he said he had never experienced it in the way that Gilligan had tried to do so, by a 'name game' was the term. - Guardian

Full transcript of Olivia Bosch's evidence (September 4, AM)

Kelly to Bosch: Nick Rufford & Andrew Gilligan = assholes!

In a telephone conversation before he died, Dr Kelly told Ms Bosch of being surprised at the way in which the Today reporter tried to get him to name names.

"He said he was taken aback by the way Andrew Gilligan tried to elicit information from him," Ms Bosch said.

Although Dr Kelly had many contacts with journalists and was experienced in the ways they tried to extract information, he told Ms Bosch he had "never experienced it in the way Gilligan had tried to do so".

Ms Bosch said Dr Kelly was "indignant" at the BBC's decision to link Gilligan's reports with those of the Newsnight science editor Susan Watts.

When Ms Bosch pointed this out, Dr Kelly gave a curt reply: "What does she have to do with this?"

Ms Bosch also told the inquiry that after the foreign affairs committee hearing, which she attended, Dr Kelly appeared to be considering that he may have indeed been a source for Watts, although he told MP that he did not recognise the words attributed by Watts to her source.

Ms Bosch said: "I got the feeling that he was having second thoughts about it."

Dr Kelly's anger at Nicholas Rufford, a Sunday Times reporter, which was revealed at the inquiry by his widow on Monday, was also raised by Ms Bosch.

She said he was furious at a piece by Rufford on the Sunday after the MoD confirmed his name, which portrayed a perfunctory conversation as a full-blown interview.

"I had never heard David so excited and so frustrated and angry - he was peeved and excited," Ms Bosch told the inquiry.


German intell connections?

Gabriele Kraatz Wadsack worked with Kelly in Iraq. She is one of Germany's top biowarfare experts and is a former head of Unscom's biological weapons program. She is also a Lieutenant Colonel in the German Army. Wadsack and Kelly had traveled around the world giving joint presentations to scientists on Iraqâs weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Just weeks before Kellyâs death, he was gone for a week in Baltimore, Maryland giving a presentation according to testimony of Mrs. Kelly before the Hutton inquiry. - Jim Rarey

Kraatz-Wadsack is from Munich, Germany and has degrees in veterinary medicine and microbiology from Ludwig-Maximillians University in Munich, Germany. She lives in Manhattan.

Baha'i connections...

Baha'i statement on Dr Kelly:

We can confirm that Dr David Kelly, whose death was confirmed by the police on Saturday afternoon was a registered Baha'i. He had become a Baha'i in New York in 1999 and had been a member of the Vale of White Horse community in Oxfordshire before the Local Assembly boundary changes left him as an isolated believer.

He quite regularly attended Baha'i events in Oxfordshire but his membership of the Faith was not widely known outside the county.

so why did the US plant a spy to watch over Dr David Kelly...?

Sergeant Mai Pedersen, described in the Mail on Sunday as, "a flirtatious divorcee, a spy for the American Air Force" and the woman who recruited him into the Baha'i faith

To the extent that Pederson's existence has even been acknowledged, she has been described variously as a "spiritual adviser" to Kelly, a translator for the US Air Force and Janice Kelly's "family friend". But there is a mass of evidence suggesting that Mai Pederson was and remains a US spy and that her relationship to Kelly was more intimate than many would like to acknowledge. WSWS

Mai Pederson [an Army intelligance officer] was a Baha'i

American was Kelly's spiritual mentor

From James Bone in Montgomery, Alabama

DAVID KELLY had an American woman spiritual mentor who served with him as a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq and later introduced him to the Baha'i religion.

The role of Mai Pederson, a US military linguist, in bringing Dr Kelly to the Baha'i faith was highlighted by Mrs Marilyn VonBerg, who was secretary of the local Baha'i assembly in Monterey, California, when Dr Kelly converted there in 1999.

Mrs VonBerg said Sgt Pederson was "very close" to Dr Kelly's family and had visited them some time before his death. "He and Mai were friends because she had taught him the faith. She is high security so we never asked them questions. But I am sure she was his translator at one point." The VonBerg family received a call from Ms Pederson, an Arabic-speaker who holds the rank of senior staff sergeant, to inform them of Dr Kelly's apparent suicide on July 17.

"All she said is: 'Don't believe what you read in the newspapers," John VonBerg said. "I do not know which direction she was coming from. It's very mysterious to us."

Dr Kelly's friendship with Sgt Pederson has not yet figured in the Hutton inquiry, but further details of Dr Kelly's faith could surface today when his widow, Janice, who suffers from arthritis, and one of his daughters, Rachel, give evidence.

Sgt Pederson, who moved to the Pentagon after working at the Defence Language Institute in Monterey, left the Washington area after Dr Kelly's death for Montgomery, Alabama, where she lives not far from Maxwell Air Force base. She would not comment when contacted through a friend at the weekend.

A US Air Force spokesman in Washington said that she was still listed in the Pentagon's internal telephone directory, but that her extension was not working. Her last known telephone number in the Washington suburbs has been reassigned, but records suggest that she bought a house in Fairfax County, Virginia, for $237,000 (£150,000) in 2001.

A source with access to UN records said that Sgt Pederson served under Dr Kelly on a UN mission to Iraq in December 1998, the last inspection before the withdrawal of UN inspectors and the US-led bombing campaign.

According to Bahai's records Dr Kelly made his declaration of faith on September 25, 1999, less than a year after the withdrawal of UN weapons inspectors.

"They were devoted friends," said Noreen Steinmetz, the current secretary of the Monterey Baha'i assembly, who spoke to Sgt Pedersen at the weekend to convey an interview request from The Times.

Mrs VonBerg, a former secretary of the local Baha'i spiritual assembly in Monterey, remembers Sgt Pederson bringing Dr Kelly to Baha'i meetings before he converted. "Her and David would come to the meetings, and he became a Baha'i. He was studying the faith," she said.

Mrs VonBerg does not know how the two first met, but, like many other Baha'i friends, she assumed that Sgt Pederson helped Dr Kelly to translate from Arabic for his work on Iraq. She remembers Dr Kelly filing his declaration of faith, marking his conversion to the Baha'i religion, with Sgt Pederson: "We gave him a book and later he bought one in England and sent over to us a book by a scientist who was a Baha'i, and he said the book really helped him to God.

"He was a very spiritual person."

Kristin Caldwell, who works at the Bosch Baha'i school in Santa Cruz, California, admired the depth of Sgt Pederson's faith.

"I lived in Monterey county for over 20 years and she was another Bahai and I truly respected her. I was impressed by somebody who could be so apolitical and still work within the Defence Department." times online

what llight could Mai Pederson shed on the tragedy of Dr Kelly,

who was found dead after being named as a source for a BBC report that the government had sexed up the case fror war on Iraq? TMOS has found no no evidence to support the Times repeated implication that the self-effacing Government scientist did indeed fall under Pederson's spell - and that she could supply revealing insights into his state of mind.

In addition, it is clear that Pederson would have first hand knowledge immerssion in the murky world of international intelligence. It appears that Dr Kelly first met Ms Pederson in Iraq in December 1998. He was part of the UN's weapons inspection team; she was an Arabic inspection USAF sergeant who had graduated from spy school "SHE HAD BEEN WHISKED BY THE MILITARY" and had held various posts in military intelligence.

She was also an energetic advocate of the bahai Faith 0 oddly, perhaps because of its avowed opposition to militarism. They became friends, not long afterwards Dr kelly began to appear at bahai meetings in Monterey, California. He was sometimes accompanied by Pederson, who was now based at a nerby military spy school. She was introduced as his spirtual mentor, to the puzzlement of some members of the sect. " There are Bahai's all over the world, including England, He didnt have to come all this way", one official said last week. Kristen Calwell who runs a bookstore, added " One of the tenets of the Faith is that you investigate it on your own".

An intelligent expert said last night that the American military had tried - and often failed - to use weapons inspectors as informants. Did Pederson target Dr Kelly for this reason?

The Abingdon Set

Roger Kingdon, a fellow member of the Baha'i group in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, attended by Dr Kelly, said: "I will remember him as a person of tremendous integrity and self containment."

Dr Kelly, he said, had given a talk to the group about his experiences as a weapons inspector in Iraq in October last year, after the dossier had been published.

Mr Kingdon said: "He had no doubt that they [the Iraqis] had biological and chemical weapons. He didn't comment on that while everyone else was there, but separately I asked him - because the dossier had just come out.

"He said he had been sitting with Jack Straw when the dossier was released to the public. It was clear that David Kelly was largely happy with the material in the dossier, but he was not so happy with how the material had been interpreted."

The Daily Telegraph on the 1st August 2003:

Victoria Roddam - Operation Mason

Controversially, he had been discussing book projects with Victoria Roddam, an Oxford publisher who, in an e-mail to the scientist only a week before his death, wrote: 'I think the time is ripe now more than ever for a title which addresses the relationship between Government policy and war - I'm sure you would agree?' She seemed to expect a positive response.

There were other puzzles, too. Immediately the news of his suicide broke, Dr Kelly's dental records were discovered to be missing from his personal file at the local surgery.

His woman dentist, according to the Hutton Inquiry, reported the mystery to police after finding an unlocked window at the surgery.

Yet - mysteriously - two days later the records reappeared back at the surgery in Dr Kelly's buff file. Their temporary disappearance so concerned the police that a DNA test was run on Dr Kelly's body to ensure it was really him.

:Among the bundles of evidence submitted to the Hutton Inquiry is also an intriguing secret document marked: 'Not for Release. Police Information Only'

The document, according to an audit of evidence in the public domain, records a tactical support operation by Thames Valley Police during what it terms a 'major incident' on July 17 and July 18 of last year when Dr Kelly was missing. It was called Operation Mason.

Thames Valley Police has told the Daily Mail that the Operation Mason file details their investigation into the circumstances surrounding Dr Kelly's death.

The audit shows that Operation Mason ended at 9.30am on July 18 as the two searchers with the dog Brock walked away from Dr Kelly's body to meet, by chance, the three detectives.

But more extraordinary was the time Operation Mason is said to have started: at 2.30pm on July 17. Bizarrely, that is exactly one hour before Dr Kelly set out on his final walk. And nearly ten hours before his distressed wife rang the police to sound the alert over her missing husband.

Revenge? or a honey trap? Dr Kelly was planning to publish
a book via Victoria Roddams 'one world' publishing house -

It was never an original publication by Openworld. All it is is a reprint, because it's a good seller at book fairs. I am talking about original publications. If Oneworld Independant Bahai Publisher's wishes to publish a new book by a Bahai author like Dr David Kelly's new book then the M/S must be cleared by the Bahai Administration. Dr kellys book on "relationship between government, policy and war" would have had to get clearance by the Universal House of Justice other wise Bahai Victoria Roddam, a commissioning editor for Oneworld Publications would not have sent him the e/mail (evidence below). It looks like the House give the OK, only Dr Kelly either committed Suicide or was murdered a week later, and the whole lot went ballistic with the Hutton Inquiry. MI6 confiscated Dr kelly's computers and the whole M/S is on it. So they have all the info they need.

Bahai - Victoria Roddam like Mai Pederson before her has gone to ground on orders from the AO & Barney Leith.

Dr Maneck's Cover up job over Dr Kelly, Victoria Roddam & Oneworld Publications

by baldrick1941@[EMAIL PROTECTED] (Baldrick) Apr 9, 2004 at 01:44 AM

Dear TRB readers,

In her most recent posts to TRB concerning Oneworld Publications Dr Maneck has been trying to misinform the public domain to protect the Universal House and Bahai administration from being anyway connected with Oneworld Publications in Oxford U,K. Baha'i Dr Kelly's death and the worldwide media interest in the Hutton Inquiry was such an embarrassment to the Universal House and the Bahai Administration they now want to cut all ties, and cover up any evidence that one of their Publishing companies was about to publish a controversial book by Dr Kelly concerning "relationship between government, policy and war" (The recent Iraq War) which the United Nations were against to begin with.


So Mai Pederson is a Bahai, working in the U.N with Kelly, . She converts Kelly to Bahai'ism, now his knowledge can now be used for new political ends. A 'New world order'

Kelly has also 'advised Judith Miller [WMD in Iraq Intelligence?]
& Valerie Plame [Niger Forgeries / Khan Nuclear proliferation ring]

The US and the UK have caused fascist states in order to profit from future conflict and rebuilding.

Are various religions involved
in the cultic programming
of Political agents for control ?


Valerie Plame - CIA handler...
was she Mai Pedersons handler on her 'trips abroad'?
Was Dr Kelly reeled in by Pedersons sexual-religious honey trap?

what of other WMD scientists, including Rihab Taha & ,
Huda Salih Mahdi Ammash - were they working for Plame
as part of a secret team whose job
was to ensure the invasion of Iraq...
via a corprate media operation of perception management?

Operation Mockingbird

In 1948 Frank Wisner was appointed director of the Office of Special Projects. Soon afterwards it was renamed the Office of Policy Coordination (OPC). This became the espionage and counter-intelligence branch of the Central Intelligence Agency. Wisner was told to create an organization that concentrated on "propaganda, economic warfare; preventive direct action, including sabotage, anti-sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures; subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups, and support of indigenous anti-Communist elements in threatened countries of the free world." - source

The wealthy have always used many methods to accumulate wealth, but it was not until the mid-1970s that these methods coalesced into a superbly organized, cohesive and efficient machine. After 1975, it became greater than the sum of its parts, a smooth flowing organization of advocacy groups, lobbyists, think tanks, conservative foundations, and PR firms that hurtled the richest 1 percent into the stratosphere.

The origins of this machine, interestingly enough, can be traced back to the CIA. This is not to say the machine is a formal CIA operation, complete with code name and signed documents. (Although such evidence may yet surface - and previously unthinkable domestic operations such as MK-ULTRA, CHAOS and MOCKINGBIRD show this to be a distinct possibility.) But what we do know already indicts the CIA strongly enough. Its principle creators were Irving Kristol, Paul Weyrich, William Simon, Richard Mellon Scaife, Frank Shakespeare, William F. Buckley, Jr., the Rockefeller family, and more. Almost all the machine's creators had CIA backgrounds. - Steve Kangas

Media corporations share members of the board of directors with a variety of other large corporations including banks, investment companies, oil companies, health care, pharmaceutical, and technology companies. Until the 1980's, media systems were generally domestically owned, regulated, and national in scope. However, pressure from the IMF, World Bank, and US government to deregulate and privatize, the media, communication, and new technology resulted in a global commercial media system dominated by a small number of super-powerful transnational media corporations (mostly US based), working to advance the cause of global markets and the CIA agenda. - Mary Louise

Operation Mass Appeal

The British MI6 establishes Operation Mass Appeal, a British intelligence mission "designed to exaggerate Iraq's weapons of mass destruction" in order to shape public opinion. The operation plants stories in the US, British, and foreign media from the 1990s through 2003. Intelligence used by Mass Appeal is said to be "single source data of dubious quality."

After the First Gulf War, the operation seeks to justify the UN sanctions policy. But after the September 11 attacks, its objective is to secure public support for an invasion of Iraq. The mission is similar to Operation Rockingham, another British intelligence disinformation program. - BBC story

excerpt from a memo from David manning to Tony Blair concerning his visit to GW Bush

Condi's enthusiasm for regime change is undimmed. But there were some signs, since we last spoke, of greater awareness of the practical difficulties and political risks. (See the attached piece by Seymour Hersh which Christopher Meyer says gives a pretty accurate picture of the uncertain state of the debate in Washington.)

From what she said, Bush has yet to find the answers to the big questions:

how to persuade international opinion that military action against Iraq is necessary and justified;

what value to put on the exiled Iraqi opposition;

how to coordinate a US/allied military campaign with internal opposition (assuming there is any);

what happens on the morning after?

Manning memo

Condoleezza Rice, National Security Advisor and super-hawk of the Bush Administration, is a former director of ChevronTexaco and continues to maintain strong ties to the company. Chevron and Texaco executives, prior to the company merger, advised Vice President Dick Cheney on energy policy, both directly through the Energy Task Force and through the company's close ties to the Council on Foreign Relations. - senderberl

"The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, The Trilateral Commission - founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller - and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens."

"The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities."

- Zbigniew Brzezinski. founder of The Trilateral Commision

Q: When the Soviets justified their intervention by asserting that they intended to fight against a secret involvement of the United States in Afghanistan, people didn't believe them. However, there was a basis of truth. You don't regret anything today?

B: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic fundementalists, having given arms and advice to future terrorists?

B: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war? - Interview with Zbigniew Brzezinsk from Le Nouvel Observateur


The New World Order can be described as a network of members of the Bilderberger Group, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and the Trilateral Commission. The membership in both the CFR and the Trilateral Commission by Admiral Bobby Ray Inman is of particular interest in light of the developments surrounding control by the military of the US nuclear weapons program and the NASA space program.

"The Council on Foreign Relations is the American Branch of a society which originated in England... (and)...believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established.... "The Trilateral Commission is international...(and)...is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States." With No Apologies (1979) by former Senator Barry Goldwater
