DSC_0002_005 As much as possible- 911 observances will be about symbolism, heroes, victims, first responders, The Troops, giant flag rituals & B-2 bomber flyovers. Anything but- questions about a catastrophic military failure and the 15 years of undeclared/unwon wars that followed.

 

Random thoughts:

Never Forget-

The US Armed Forces were irrelevant in defending American rights and freedoms, our physical security, & The Constitution on 911.

Ditto for all other federal agencies and departments.

 

Perhaps four handguns could have saved thousands on 911?

First responders question crime scene protocols:

Conspiracy Theory?

Asking for clarification/better info is not the same as offering up any sort of conspiracy theory.

More information is better- this is how science and medicine works. Over the years some people have been freed from prison based on new DNA evidence becoming available.
Are the people who took steps to discover that new evidence conspiracy theorists?
Apply this same curiosity and desire for knowledge to some controversial topics and you’ll be labeled a conspiracy theorist.

Why the effort to suppress information?

 

US Dept. of Homeland Security boondoggle:

As of 2013: ‘Homeland security’ has received $791 billion since 9/11

Still not enough cash to keep heroin-trafficking cartels out of the Seattle area:

“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”

DSC_0009_006 People are starting to ask questions.

Operating a camera in a public place might be a sign of terrorist activity?

Terror threat dismissed by citizen at 6:04

US troops to Iraq & Afghanistan ($4 trillion) & the creation of the US Dept. of Homeland Security ($791 billion)- still unable to keep US communities safe.

15 years past 911- what part of the War on Terror is working?

In the news:

Homeland Security Vote of Confidence:

ISIS releases ‘Kill List’; Seven Texas cities included

“The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) published the list days ago, a report that contained names, photos, and home addresses of U.S. Armed Forces personnel, causing alarm in cities potentially at high-risk.”

 

Pentagon victim/statistic medal to be awarded to personnel not involved in military operations:

DOD: Soldier slain in Orlando attack might qualify for Purple Heart

These guys were at work in hometown USA:

Chattanooga Attack Victims to Be Awarded Purple Hearts

Vast crime-fighting resources are available to the folks who tell us there is “no credible threat.”

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it- surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, school & church shootings, child abduction, etc.

The post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) appears to have played no role in preventing the crimes Re: Purple Heart Medals described above.

DSC_0005 Discussions on news sites seem to be more about group identities and less about issues. I am not anti-government, anti-military or anti-law enforcement. My concerns are not specific to any political party, personality or group identity.

After years of reading comments posted to news articles, here’s my take-

“The Troops are keeping us safe.”

Except on 911. Except when heroin-trafficking cartels want to move product into the Seattle area:

DEA:

“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”

Welcome Home Troops

Thanks for your service.

NFL honors The Troops while establishing Increased security at NFL stadiums because overseas military operations are keeping us safe?

The Troops are keeping us safe- except when violent offenders are on the loose.

After spending huge amounts of cash on these programs:

The post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) the system needs your help in locating the whereabouts of these folks:

Washington’s Most Wanted

 

Veterans, not politicians, ‘give us the right to vote,’ observers at Amherst Veterans Day ceremonies told

Why the need for a 1965 Voting Rights Act if overseas military operations somehow secured voting rights?

 

Comments questioning the US Armed Forces are often met with:

“You wouldn’t have the freedom to post your nonsense if people were not giving their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect that freedom.”

Hey school teachers– where did this idea come from?

Were US troops sent to Vietnam so that Americans could be free to send letters to the editor?

Is there any case in which the US Armed Forces have been sent to distant lands on a mission to protect freedom of speech?

Is protecting freedom of speech even part of training scenarios?

 

“We would all be speaking German today if it weren’t for those amazing individuals back then.”

The free and well armed people who populate the North American continent could be forced to speak a language not of their choosing?

Please see Operation Sea Lion.

The world’s most modern & powerful military force has had their hands full for years now trying to pacify the locals in the Greater Middle East.

We’ve got such a good handle on the situation- National Guard units are doing multiple tours in distant lands– absent any military emergency, draft, or declaration of war:

 

“The Troops are fighting to protect our rights and freedoms.”

As if the US Armed Forces function as some sort of giant civil rights organization.

US foreign policy goals and objectives are mapped out at the very highest levels of government.

Ask yourself- is there someone at the table- in those high level planning sessions- who makes sure that military operations overseas include a mission to protect American rights and freedoms?

Does someone make sure the mission is to defend the constitution?

Is there anyone who verifies that the mission is to protect our physical security?

How does the executive branch of government defend the constitution via US foreign policy?

How are decades of undeclared/unwon wars protecting our freedoms? People are quick to pass the buck & blame politicians when The Troops return home without a victory. When The Troops are defending freedom house of cards collapses- politicians are to blame? Is it politicians that defend rights & freedoms?

Does all this freedom mean it would be OK to grow a marijuana plant in the back yard?

 

A few months back there was a discussion about NAS Whidbey jets training over the Olympic Peninsula.
A question came up:
Why are NAS Whidbey jets not doing their training over a military reservation in Eastern WA, California, Nevada, etc. The federal government has set aside huge amounts of land for this purpose.
Answer:
It would take too much jet fuel to move aircraft back & forth over a long distance. Discussion in comments here.

New info:
Whidbey jets recently preformed a public relations flyover at the Indy 500. Is NAS Whidbey the closest military installation capable of performing a flyover in Indiana?

Looks like jet fuel may not be an issue here. Hometown pride means not asking questions.

The US should maintain a strong & ready military to be used for defensive purposes in wars declared by congress. People should find honest ways to honor the military. Stop with the nonsense about freedom & free speech rights.

Recommendation: phase out decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas.

Are fraudulent overtime claims still the norm at Port Angeles?

Border Patrol whistleblower pays price for refusing overtime pay

 

Whidbey Island:

Are these boats built in Bremerton? Newspeople didn’t take the time to ask.

Federal grant money goes to “…gain a better grasp on cross border activity and to prevent illegal crossings.”

“Funding for the boat was issued through the Homeland Security Grant Program under Operation Stonegarden.”

“But the sheriff’s office, after getting a $225,000 grant through the Homeland Security Grant Program, will be purchasing a new vessel.”

If public meetings were held on Whidbey Island & people were asked to state their top law enforcement priorities- would a Homeland Security patrol boat show up anywhere on the list?

If the Sheriff was interviewed & asked for his wish list- is there any possibility that it would include a Homeland Security patrol boat?

Took a quick look on the web to see if there is a post 911 history of maritime “cross-border activity” on Whidbey & could not find anything. If anyone has info, please post in comments.

DSC_0084 News video: Americans Keeping an Eye Out on Terrorism

Newspeople didn’t show up at the base to ask any questions during this report, so I’ll ask a few. My questions appear in bold type.

From what we can tell here- 25 years of war in Iraq results in a situation where terror strikes may happen in the US at any time. What was the purpose of sending troops to Iraq & Afghanistan? What was the payoff in creating the US Dept. of Homeland Security?

“Even though Brussels and Paris are both thousands of miles from the Ozarks, in our society, experts say we all are susceptible to terrorism. ”

“Those kinds of things could happen any day, any place in the United States.”

Welcome Home Troops- thanks for your service.

“While citizens keep a lookout, thousands of soldiers train to keep us safe at Fort Leonard Wood.”

“Murphy said we cannot forget what we learned from September 11th.”

Never Forget-

The US Armed Forces were irrelevant in defending American rights and freedoms, our physical security, & The Constitution on 911.

Ditto for all other federal agencies and departments.

 

“We can’t allow safe harbors in Iraq and Afghanistan from happening again. We can’t allow ISIS to hurt our families.”

“Murphy believes America faces challenges ahead to keep families safe.”

“We need these young Americans to raise their right hand to support and defend the Constitution,” said Murphy.

Secretary Murphy,

How are wars in Iraq & Afghanistan keeping us safe while heroin-trafficking cartels are able to move product into the Seattle area?

Seattle media:

DEA-

“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”

 

How do decades of undeclared/unwon wars overseas relate to defending the Constitution?

 

US foreign policy goals and objectives are mapped out at the very highest levels of government.

Ask yourself- is there someone at the table- in those high level planning sessions- who makes sure that military operations overseas include a mission to protect American rights and freedoms?

Does someone make sure the mission is to defend the constitution?

Is there anyone who verifies that the mission is to protect our physical security?

Standard driver’s licenses have not been accepted at the border since 2009. How are heroin-trafficking cartels moving product into the Seattle area in 2015?

Seattle media:

DEA-

“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”

In the news: The threat of terrorism is “just as high or higher now than after 911,” an FBI agent said Monday in Wenatchee.

 

The War on Terror is meant to keep bad people from coming to the US?

Seattle media:

DEA-

“James said western Washington might as well be the backyard for three Mexican drug cartels.”

 

US Dept. of Homeland Security-

State-run media update:

“Our nation is safer and more secure because of their leadership and dedication to mission.”

Special/Enhanced ID has been required to go have lunch in Canada- then return home- since 2009.

If special ID works to keep bad guys out- how are cartels moving heroin into the Puget Sound area in 2015?

DEA:

Chattanooga Attack Victims to Be Awarded Purple Hearts

Vast crime-fighting resources are available to the folks who tell us there is “no credible threat.”

The post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) appears to have played no role in preventing the crimes described here.

San Bernardino Shooter’s Friend Expected to Face Gun Charges

 

Since 911- we’re supposed to believe that the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it:

Son of Boston Police Captain Arrested as Possible Terrorist

“…struggled with mental illness his whole life.”

Unlike bad guys everywhere- he went to purchase illegal firearms from an undercover FBI confidential informant.

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it- surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, school & church shootings, child abduction, etc.

By Fred Reed

This is one of the very few articles I have seen that says the reason we aren’t seeing more terror strikes inside the US- is because the terrorists aren’t trying very hard.

I have wondered for years-

What prevents the badass terrorists we are supposed to stay scared of from blowing themselves up in a crowded airport just short of the screening checkpoint?

Extra security at stadiums across America after 14 years of the proud War on Terror-

In the news:

NFL increasing security at stadiums following Paris attacks

If it is essential to bring a bag, it must be in compliance with the clear bag policy which requires that it be made of clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and not exceed 12″ x 6″ x 12.”

Paris attacks: US sports, tourist venues tighten security as precaution

“The NFL said it had been in contact with the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI and planned increased security inside and outside stadiums on Sunday. League officials discouraged fans from bringing bags.”

 

Officials: No credible threats target US after Paris attacks

No credible threats- because- in the War on Terror- the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it?

Seems like post-911 security protocols & the War on Terror would be a drug cartel’s worst nightmare. What does the US Dept. of Homeland Security have to say about all this?
