Amazing war vet, Mike Prysner is Back!

The amazing Mike Prysner that John99 introduced us to is back, and he's going to get some help (http://revolution538.org) with his cause:

http://www.michaelmoore.com/words/mike-friends-blog/meet-your-boss-robert-gates

Mike Prysner

 

"Gates must have some valuable experience and qualifications to remain the head of the war machine after our “great democracy” voted those policies out!

Gates’ illustrious military service spans an entire two years in the Air Force as a second lieutenant. He spent the Vietnam War at a base in Missouri and attending top-notch universities. His subsequent career in the CIA includes heavy involvement in the Iran-Contra affair, a notorious criminal scandal that caused the deaths of thousands of innocent people.

But most valuable to the Pentagon would be Gates’ wealth of experience serving on the boards of directors of a variety of private companies, many of which he holds personal financial investments with.

This is the real résumé of our esteemed leader:

  •  
    •  
      • Board of Trustees of Fidelity Investments, the largest mutual fund company in the world. Among other defense investments, Fidelity works in partnership with the Boeing Company, one of the largest war-profiteering corporations in the world, holding some of the largest defense contracts with the Pentagon.
      • Board of Directors of Parker Drilling Company, which is drilling for oil all over the world. Particularly, Parker Drilling operates in Kuwait and has heavy investments drilling for oil in Kazakhstan, one of the former oil-rich Soviet-bloc countries that the Pentagon hopes to win control over by having a U.S. base in Afghanistan.
      • Board of Directors of NACCO Industries, which has approximately $30 million in defense contracts.
      • Board of Directors of Draper Labs, which was once known as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Instrumentation Laboratory. After scoring huge defense contracts to develop navigation systems for ballistic missiles during the criminal war in Vietnam, massive anti-war protests at MIT against the research program shamed the group into splitting off and becoming Draper Labs, which still holds multi-billion-dollar defense contracts with the Pentagon.
      • Board of Directors of Science Applications International Corporation, a defense contractor that made a killing off of the war in Iraq, elevating it to the ninth largest defense contractor in the world. SAIC is now a Fortune 500 company holding multi-billion-dollar defense contracts with the Pentagon.

Only a brief glance at Gates’ resume reveals his deep ties to the military-industrial complex, but we should not mistake these ties for the driving force behind his actions as secretary of defense. The billionaires in charge did not promote Gates to the highest echelons of their state machine because he is loyal to his own personal interests, but rather because he has demonstrated a record of unwavering service to the common interests of the owners, bankers, and the super-rich. In the eyes of the war profiteers, the fact that Gates is one of their own only enhances his qualifications as a trustworthy functionary."

The Military Industrial Complex and the vanishing $Trillions

Eisenhower sounded a warning...

On Sept 10th, 2001, one day before 911, Donald Rumsfeld announces $2.3 trillion of defense money can't be accounted for

An audit team was working on the Pentagon's books to try and find the missing money.

So what did they find?

Nothing.

The audit was never finished because 'apparently' the audit was taking place in the newly renovated wing of the Pentagon that was destroyed the very next day on 911.

Dozens of contract auditors were killed and like the Enron and Arthur Andersen records that were 'apparently' held in WTC-7 and also destroyed on 911, the Pentagon financial records were 'disappeared'.

Ain't it funny how all the originals were destroyed and there were no duplicate copies!

CONCLUSION? - Next time the IRS asks you for receipts to prove any refund claims just tell 'em a hi-jacked Boeing 757 crashed into your office filing cabinet! Undecided

More on those who died in the Pentagon along with the audit...

http://archive.southcoasttoday.com/daily/12-01/12-20-01/a02wn018.htm

Quote:

One Army office in the Pentagon lost 34 of its 65 employees in the attack. Most of those killed in the office, called 'Resource Services Washington', were civilian accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts. They were at their desks when American Airlines Flight 77 struck.

Here's the cached version of what' s left of the Resource Services Washington webpage which was under the umbrella of the Headquarters, Department of the Army Resource Management or HQDA-RM
(Be quick this page has been removed and the cached version will soon expire)

http://74.125.153.132/search?q=cache:El-nXexvzWMJ:www.hqda.army.mil/rsw/+%22resource+services+washington%22&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=au

A tribute...

In honor of the HQDA-RM employees who were lost and injured during the Attack on America Sept 11, 2001


And their Mission Statement...

  • Develop MACOM level Program Objective Memorandum
  • Formulate the Operating Agency annual budget estimate.
  • Develop allocation guidance.
  • Execute or monitor the execution of budget authority.
  • Supervise open transactions and operation of DTS-W and the Army Welfare Fund.
  • Conduct budget execution reviews and managerial accounting service.
  • Report and account for public funds.
  • Evaluate operations for compliance with policy and recommend improvement.
  • Administer a Management Control Program.

And more interesting stuff here...

Quote:

from page A-69 of the 'Arlington County Pentagon after Action Report'

"....The impact area included both the Navy operations center and the office complex of the National Guard and Army Reserve.  It was also the end of the fiscal year and important budget information was in the damaged area..."

and

Quote:

"...And Insight Magazine editorialized that "the Department of the Army, headed by former Enron executive Thomas White, had an excuse [for not making a full accounting]. In a shocking appeal to sentiment it says it didn't publish a "stand-alone" financial statement for 2001 because of "the loss of financial-management personnel sustained during the Sept. 11 terrorist attack..."

More about Thomas White...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_E._White

Quote:

"...The Washington Post reported that in late October 2001, White made numerous phone calls to Enron executives including Vice President Jude Rolfes, CFO Jeff Skilling and CEO Ken Lay. Shortly after the calls were made, White unloaded 200,000 Enron shares for $12 million..."

Rowmat -

At least tell the whole story.  This was not the first time or the only time the "missing" defense budget money had come up. 

3/3/00  Associated Press John Donnelly

8/18/00  DFAS audit

1/7/01 DoD IG Audit Report

from http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread/346398/pg1

Response post from Captain Obvious - wonder if he/she is related to Captain Sheeple?

 

To imply without substantiation that "something" was going on, and an audit team that was working on finding and solving a problem (that didn't exist) were working in the Pentagon at the impact is disingenuous and irresponsible.  Half the offices and casualties were N81 (Manpower and Personnel).

Let's at least leave the door open to the possiblity that the missing money was 5 years of compounded errors and piss poor accounting practices instead of of some New World Order/Spooky Dark International Banking Family payoff.

I concede that the latter scenario is also a non-zero possibility, but it's a hell of lot closer to zero than the other explanation(s).

It does make you think though..........I keep going back to Occam's Razor - but you already knew that.  Cool

Hope your New Year is off to a good start - have a good one.

Re: Amazing war vet, Mike Prysner is Back!

Thanks Headless

Mike is a true patriot.

The congressional military industrial complex has a strangle hold on this

country.  It is great to see people speaking out.

I have been doing it for over 45 years.

Our military is run by the same corporatocracy that is running Wall Street.

It well past time we took the country back from them.

It will take more veterans such as Mike with the courage, honor and love

of what this country was founded for.

It took a critical mass of vets to speak out against the Vietnam war.

It will take the same and more to end the current insanity.

A good start would be to return to the honesty our government used to display.

Let's rename the Defense Dept. the War Dept. That is the way it used to be

and that is the way it is now. (Maybe more correctly the Defense of Empire Dept.)

Keep up the posts.

Re: Amazing war vet, Mike Prysner is Back!

Good stuff Rowmat.  Odd how the "Department of Offense" can lose an amount of money that is many times their annual budget.  Could it be that military pensions have been stolen?

The odd circumstances surrounding American Flight 77and the Pentagon continue as detailed in this video from "Pilots for 911 Truth" -

Probably not - I've been getting both of my checks each month since 2003.

And while I can appreciate that alleged "missing" trillions become fodder and proof for all kinds of "black project" money pits, it is also entirely possible that compounded data entry errors and poor accounting practices are another explanation.

Billion?  Trillion?  Whatever.

Besides, the only person(s) that could spend that kind of money that quickly is my daughter when shoes are on sale somewhere or the dynamic duo of Bernake-Geithner when there is a special interest to bail out.
