U.S. MARINE HELD CAPTIVE IN MEXICAN PRISON NOW 37 DAYS AFTER MISTAKEN BORDER CROSSING

Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi is in urgent need of medical care available only in the United States:  THE 5TH ESTATE CALLS UPON THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT TO RELEASE SGT. TAHMOORESSI ON HUMANITARIAN MEDICAL GROUNDS; please sign the petition to release Sgt. Tahmooressi

"Nothing is being done…. nothing…" - Mother Jill Tahmooressi

The mother of a U.S. marine being held captive in a Mexican prison feels like she’s living a nightmare. Jill Tahmooressi’s son Andrew survived two combat tours overseas but now fears for his life every day after a genuine mistake near the U.S. - Mexico border landed him in prison.


Sgt. Tahmooressi in need of urgent medical care
Andrew Tahmooressi was driving to meet up with a friend on March 31 this year when he made a wrong turn. He was driving through Southern California when he made the mistake, and before he knew it was approaching the Mexican border.

“I was going to call them after I drove off the exit, but I never got off the exit, I blew right past it,” Tahmooressi told U-T San Diego in an interview from jail. “I wasn’t paying attention, thinking I had way farther to go. I ended up in Mexico with no way to turn around.”



When Tahmooressi reached the border, he told Mexican patrol agents he’d gone the wrong way and only wanted to turn around. His truck was packed with all of his belongings at the time, which included three legal, registered guns. You can probably see where this is going.

Tahmooressi immediately told the agents about the guns in his car. Nevertheless, they suspected he was trying to illegally run the guns into the country and arrested him. He was taken to La Mesa prison in Tijuana, where he is now being held without bail.

The decorated U.S. veteran received daily death threats upon entering the prison. One day, he was certain the men threatening him were not bluffing. His mother recalled the terrifying phone call she received from Andrew that night.

“He called me one night and he said in a panicked voice, he said, ‘Mom I’m not going to make it through the night,’” Jill Tahmooressi quotes her son saying. “’There’s hit men in here, they have told me they are going to kill me. They’re going to rape and then torture and murder me and they’re going to send me out in a body bag.’”

Tahmooressi felt he had no choice but to attempt an escape. He hopped a gate and scaled a wall up onto a rooftop. Moments later he was spotted, and gave up his attempt to flee when a guard opened fire. He is now back in prison, waiting for U.S. and Mexico officials to negotiate his release.

Bill Whitaker, the American Citizens Services chief at Tijuana’s U.S. consulate, says he and other U.S. officials are doing everything in their power to expedite Tahmooressi’s release.

“The Consulate is taking all possible steps to assist the Tahmooressi family while working within the guidelines of the Mexican penal system,” Whitaker said in a letter. 



“In addition to visiting Mr. Tahmooressi, the Consulate has made several visits to the judge who will hear the case and is working closely with Mrs. Tahmooressi to gather medical records, affidavits and translations for court submission for Mr. Tahmooressi’s hearing on May 28, 2014.”

For a mother whose son fears for his life every day in prison, May 28 is a long way off.

“The nightmare is getting worse and worse,” Jill Tahmooressi said. “He was brave and survived [his tours in Afghanistan], but now we have him in a Mexican prison with no help or relief.”

Antitank Missiles For Syrian Rebels Part Of Existing U.S. Arms Trafficking Mechanism

Obama/CIA now supply FSA poison gas murderers with advanced weapons that will wind up killing Americans once again

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By Henry Kamens
05/05/2014

It is well-known in the intelligence community that the business of the US defence establishment is making war, and making sure that the world remains insecure for the sake of continued corporate profit.


The international arms market supplies terrorists and insurgents in a dozen African conflicts along with transshipment into stockpiles inside the EU and elsewhere. 

One country that has a special role in this mechanism is former Soviet Georgia. The convenient location sandwiched between competing hotspots and proxy wars is used as a transit point for advanced weapons, often from the US, that enter the unregulated international market.


US President Dwight Eisenhower is often quoted as fearing what would happen if the Military-Defense Establishment got out of control, and his portents are especially relevant in this day and age. For instance, the recent downing of at least two helicopters in Ukraine has many frothing at the mouth over the potential corporate and political profits to be gained from this action, especially those for some members of NATO, who need Russia to be perceived as the bad guy.

It is now beyond doubt that the overthrow of Assad in Syria is being treated in the same way. That conflict has become yet another proving ground for US weaponry.

A late April Washington Post article, ‘Syrian Rebels who Received First U.S. Missiles of War See Shipment as “an Important First Step”’ describes how the “Friends of Syria” have delivered surface to air missiles to the “U.S.-backed alliance of Western powers and Persian Gulf Arab states supporting the opposition Free Syrian Army.”

This article presents itself as a mild exposé, but it does not go nearly far enough. There is a lot it does not say, but should, as it is proven fact.

For instance, we are told not to worry about these arms supplies because this delivery was made on condition that the rebels will abide by an honour code “to return the canister of each missile fired, to not resell the weapons and to protect them from theft.”


CIA/FSA mercs with U.S. supplied heavy AA gun that will one day shoot down American airmen

Making such stipulations is on the same level as asking a hardcore heroin addict not to share needles and to practice safe sex to avert the spread of HIV and other blood borne diseases. If you give people arms, they will use them to achieve whatever ends they want and deal with questions later. Sooner or later such arms, whatever the model of the week, will have unintended consequences – call it blowback!

The article also fails to point out that the same sort of language is used on each and every end user certificate issued with an arms shipment. However, it is these same end user certificates which fuel war and mayhem and add to the corporate and political bottom line.

They are necessary because there are laws about who you can sell arms to, and for what purpose. Obviously therefore “rebel” or “terrorist” groups can only acquire them if a fake end used certificate is used. These cost money, but not as much as will be made from the sale.

Therefore fake end user certificates are a reliable source of lucrative cash for the individuals and countries willing to produce them. Democratic countries don’t do such things in the open, but they pay dependent patsies elsewhere to do them for them, and be the fall guy when appropriate. For every third world minister jailed for corruption there are many more who own houses in wealthier countries which they could never have bought with their declared income.

It should also be understood that, often, the real intention of these arms supplies is not even to support the latest “cause”. It is to make sure that various weapons and technology leak to other hotspots. The ramping up of the ongoing crisis in Ukraine is directly proportional to the potential for high tech weapons getting into the hands of the Kiev government, delivered from third parties either invisible or the “official” recipients of these supplies.

U.S. Homeland Security Has Already Documented Weapons Transfers

The mechanism for the covert supply of weapons to people who are forbidden from having them is well established. The cook book for doing so dates back to the days of Iran-Contra, and the same recipes are being followed when supplying to Turkey, Syria and a long list of other war zones. That is how everyone involved knows what is really going on, and the rules they have to follow. There is still honour amongst thieves, because there have to be trustworthy rules to get anything done.


Obama/CIA FSA mass murderers now have the weapons and training to wage war on U.S. military personnel

The evidence is now in black and white. Documents obtained from Homeland Security itself state that US Defence Contractors have an established link with illegal weapons shipments in regions friendly to the United States, and that considerable effort has been made to refine the mechanism of these.

One among many examples is US HOMELAND SECURITY DOCUMENT No. 87352. This was intercepted by Georgian Officials and an American investigative journalist. It describes in detail how US weapons systems are covertly delivered using Ilyushin-76 cargo airplanes, belonging to a company called Air West Georgia, and accompanied by shady documents, AKA fake end user certificates.

The Georgian authorities have previously been provided with secret tapes and transcripts of the negotiations concerning similar shipments, which have even been published on Youtube. This document confirms that these follow the same well-established pattern, the accepted rules of the criminal game, and are not therefore the actions of rogue individual dealers. They are only done, and can only be done, with the full knowledge of a range of respectable democracies, including Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The transcript of the negotiations about one particular shipment, included in this document, shows the sender saying the following:

“Ah, the scheme of shipping one [container], I was pushing it onto Panalpina, or [another freight forwarder, local] who is ready to accept it [goods] and deliver it to the actual end user.

From the time of dispatch from Europe the goods [are to] arrive in a rather timely fashion. So, in principle, the delivery time is eight to ten days. “ah, Ba… Baku or Tbilisi – Tbilisi; so forth, and… so on….”

The document then talks about an incident in which a number of men conspired to rob a number of containers in order to fulfil the supply order. Their leader was Zurab Gabunia from Poti, and the other members Zviad Kvikviania, Noshrevan Kvirkvelia (they may have been relatives), Platon Silogava, Malxaz Alasania, Gia Kukania, Temur Bolkvadze, Kandid Gagua, Zaal Gogia, Levan Shurgaia and Ednar Shavishvili.

Besik Kviraia worked as a driver at the Barwil Georgia terminal in Poti. According to court documents he fed the other gang members the necessary inside information. The robbery took place in 2009, on January 30, and was not the first undertaken by this gang. One of the Kamazi trucks used to extract the containers from the terminal was owned by Zurab Kvikvinia, the other owned by Kandid Gagua.

On January 31 these containers were found, the first in the yard of Noshrevan Kvirvelia’s house in Poti and second at the junction of 8th March and Chaladidi Streets. Both Kamazi trucks were then found abandoned nearby. On August 7, 2009, the court sentenced all the gang members to ten years in prison, and a 4,000 GEL fine.

The court documents on this case say that the first container held 27,000 kg of black copper, and the second 27,430 kg of the same material. It also says that those arrested “did it for the money”, but “there is a real suspicion that [someone] needed this material for some different goal.”

Of course they did. The containers containing black copper were abandoned because they were the only ones without weapons in them. The Homeland Security document confirms that they were the “front” part of a US-sponsored arms shipment. The other containers involved were delivered to the final destination on schedule.

How does the mechanism work?

This document concerned a sale by an American company to the Barwil Freight Forwarding Company, which was run by the enforcers of the previous Georgian government, who are now mostly either under arrest or on the run themselves. Barwil is a CIA-backed company, with a historic link with the former Eduard Shevardnadze regime and various American East European arms traffickers, including some with known links to Mexico and the State of Arizona. Dillon Aero: M134 Gatling Gun, Miniguns, M134 Gun Systems, Naval Mounts, Helicopter Mounts, Vehicle Mounts

The details of the mechanism for making shipments, previously well-documented by local investigators and people working at the port, are confirmed by this document. There are two options a shipper can take, which are described in detail.

One option is to either present an end-user certificate from a different country, which is most often not a possibility. The other is for the shipping agency to manufacture one themselves, which will cost a couple more bucks but is highly effective, as it is also the mechanism which controls the flow of a massive slush fund used by those the US government most favours, including the Mikheil Saakashvilli regime in Georgia, which succeeded that of previous US favourite Shevardnadze but is now out of office, officially, for the time being.

As the undercover tapes reveal, this was a legal shipment from the United States but it was illegal for the destination country to receive it.

The transcript included in the document reads: “So in those documents which must be entered, the end-user must be clearly stated, because he is the payer … and we need these documents. We must appear because … that document which is included must be accurately drawn up in that regard, because not only did we pay, but we will be paid also.

“Customs procedures are different, you should understand that. They will only pay us money in two cases: if ah … the final destination and the end-user of the goods will be right – the ones provided to customs.”

It gets worse. Read on:

“The paperwork for Dillon [a US based arms dealer masquerading as an airline supply company which makes big donations to US politicians] is still going to have to be falsified

But your customs doesn’t need to see the same paperwork. There are two sets of documents, but one that goes to Dillon. It is the typical contraband approach, that is, he says they will prepare two packets of documents; the product leaves with one and arrives with the other. In your set everything will be correct, just as you asked."

“…and deliver ‘em to [named country] if this makes [it] any cheaper for you or any faster for you, just… He is saying, believe me, there are [channels], don’t… don’t worry. This is not the first time we have moved something out, although we never [delivered anything] to that country.

“I understand, and this is not our first day in this business either, that’s why we wanted to … knowing our experience, provide the needed information which we [already] have. What does this entail?

“Right… we have now determined that production is in process, transportation is ready, thank God … and now, what correct entry documents do we need?

“This is not going to be an aviation report: rather, it’s going to be an [issue] based on our instructions, [paperwork] has to be filled out clearly. Again, talking about this entire transportation route, which is quite complicated and long…

“You’re gonna have the same safety for… for it being delivered this way, as if you did go through Dillon; it’s the same risk, of this part when it reaches Europe. So, I mean, it… it… is there but one in a million chance that something will go wrong, whether you go through Dillon or what… and have an end user certificate or not, there’s a one in million chance!

“Don’t misunderstand [me] … well, basically… so… the first part of the answer is that the [end user certificate] will be properly filled out. Please don’t worry about things that you don’t need to worry about. And secondly, regarding the delivery, don’t misunderstand [me]… whether you shipped it minimum 100% or you totally bought it legally from Dillon, it would still go because the export license from the United States is one of two hundred papers that need to be attached in order to transport it through Europe correctly.

“It’s all… Well, it’s going to go according to [various] schemes. That’s why either this way or that, in reality we are still paying [to ensure] that everything turns out all right. Follow all our instructions and… what exactly should be in the customs document like… we are… as a contractor, whatever else, end user number of the contract… you wanted uh… this information to uh… to be given uh… to be put into the contract or just… used to meet with….”

This is but one transaction. As the people organising this shipment say in the transcript included in the document, they have been doing this for a long time. If you want to know where, watch the news, and see where US politicians pop up, supporting some armed struggle or other.

So what is going on now?

All these weapons are being dispatched via one country – Georgia, the regional illegal arms hub. This country has made a select few of its politicians rich by providing fake end user certificates, with the full knowledge of the US manufacturers and intelligence agencies, in deals alleged to brokered largely by Temur Alasania, uncle of former president Saakashvili.

The Washington Post article claimed that the shipment of surface to air missiles was the first advance of American weaponry to be dispatched to Syria since the conflict began, and has “reignited long-abandoned hopes” amongst the rebels that the Obama administration is going to provide significant military aid and, perhaps, help move the battlefield equation back in their favour.

However, it is documented that the Syrian rebels met with Western and local arms traffickers in Georgia prior to the new government coming to power in 2012. This cannot have been a social visit. There have also been other unofficial Georgian links to larger operational and financial mechanisms in Turkey, Israel, Azerbaijan and the Middle East, exactly of the sort described in the intercepted Department of Homeland Security document, which again do not exist, or exist where they do, for no reason.

As previously described in this journal, Omar Gorgashvili, an undercover arms dealer active throughout the region who is Georgian as his name implies, has been proven to be tied in with both the Georgian and American intelligence agencies. This clearly connects the US and Georgia, and other allies, with his activities, as these intelligence services would not let him get away with them unless they were profiting from the enterprise.

It is clear that the decision to supply state-of-the-art U.S.-made antitank missiles to Syria, and the intelligence services of other countries, is part of a larger mechanism. It has been run by the US through compliant partners since, at the very least, the time of Charlie Wilson’s war in Afghanistan, where it was also described in detail.

Why?

The supply of arms to Syria, now finally acknowledged, is part of a much larger mechanism which generates considerable profits for a certain few. Some of these people are politicians, but most are corporate executives. In both cases, they work hand in hand with intelligence agencies, whose necessary participation launders both the supplies and their profits by suggesting that a “good cause”, such as security or humanitarian interest, is what lies behind them.

Some people might think that knowing supplying arms in an illegal way is justified, if they will be used for a good cause. Do the US backed forces in Syria and Ukraine, who we are told are fighting for democracy, have the same understanding of what the word means, or the same understanding as the US?

No one has yet provided evidence that filling the pockets of executives is a cause anyone in Syria, Ukraine or any other trouble spot has ever wanted to fight and die for. Nor have they been asked, and nor will they ever be, if they are still alive to ask.

Steny Hoyer Urges Democrats To Oppose Lois Lerner Contempt

This is not about politics but the murder of four Americans and a criminal president; Hoyer doomed if Democrats fail to uphold Constitution at his urging

POLITICO
By Lauren French
05/05/2014

House Democratic leaders are urging their members to vote against holding former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner in contempt, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said on Monday.


Hoyer a traitor to Americans, constituents 
The Maryland Democrat said leadership would oppose the contempt vote, which is scheduled to reach the House floor this week, on grounds that it is “political messaging.”

Lerner, who retired from the IRS last fall, was responsible for the agency division that targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny as they sought a tax exemption. She has repeatedly refused to answer questions from House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa’s panel, prompting the contempt vote.



“We’re going to express our opposition certainly to the Lerner [vote],” Hoyer said.

Speaker John Boehner has previously said Lerner would face a contempt vote as long as she refused to testify and Republicans are hoping a court will determine that she waived her Fifth Amendment right not to self-incriminate after giving a short speech before the Oversight Committee last May.


Turning on water works won't save Lerner this time around
Hoyer said he predicts any court will side with Lerner.

“People want to read the Constitution right up until the time it makes them uncomfortable with providing people with the rights that they don’t think they ought to have,” he said. “I think if it passes, the courts will sustain Ms. Lerner’s claim of Fifth Amendment privileges.”

Phoenix VA Scandal : New Charges And A Second Whistleblower

A disgusting scandal exposed; VA "officials" actions now cross over from the administrative to the criminal; all should be charged with murder 

IBTIMES
By Jamie Reno
05/03/2014

It’s getting even hotter in Phoenix, where government officials are investigating a scandal at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care System. At least 40 U.S. veterans allegedly died at the Phoenix VA waiting for appointments, and many of them were placed on a secret waiting list to hide the long wait times, according to Dr. Sam Foote, a physician at the Phoenix VA for 24 years who retired in December.


Courageous whistleblower:  Dr. Katherine Mitchell
A second whistleblower, Dr. Katherine Mitchell, also a longtime physician at the Phoenix VA, came forward this week with more incendiary charges of poor treatment of veterans in Phoenix and accusations that officials shredded documents related to the investigation.

The controversy remains focused on the secret list, which was part of an elaborate scheme designed by VA managers in Phoenix to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to Foote.


Foote’s charges have prompted investigations the VA Inspector General and Congress. On Thursday, House Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL) sent a scathing letter to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki demanding that the Phoenix VA hand over documents and answer questions about this secret list.

Miller told Shinseki that if VA does not “immediately and fully” respond to his requests by next Wednesday, May 9th, "I will not hesitate to convene an emergency meeting of the committee to formally subpoena all requested information."


Dr. Sam Foote - first whistleblower
Miller also slammed VA brass for not answering questions from or providing any information on the allegations.

He called it "extraordinarily disconcerting" that more than a week was allowed to pass before any directive was issued by Phoenix VA Director Sharon Helman and her staff to preserve all potential electronic and paper evidence, which Miller requested in writing earlier this month.



Late on Thursday, Shinseki announced he was placing Helman, along with PVAHCS Associate Director Lance Robinson, and a third unnamed employee, on administrative leave until further notice.

“We take these allegations very seriously,” Shinseki said in a statement. “Providing Veterans the quality care and benefits they have earned through their service is our only mission at the Department of Veterans Affairs…. We believe it is important to allow an independent, objective review to proceed. These allegations, if true, are absolutely unacceptable and if the Inspector General’s investigation substantiates these claims, swift and appropriate action will be taken.”

Helman said in a written statement reported by the Arizona Republic that she respected Shinseki's decision and was "fully supportive of any decision that ensures we have a thorough review by the Office of the Inspector General."


VA Director Sharon Helman
On Thursday, Mitchell, the second whistleblower, came forward. Mitchell, who's spent nearly 16 years at the Phoenix VA, told the Arizona Republic that a fellow employee called her last Sunday night to tell her that records were being shredded and to ask her how to handle the situation.

Mitchell said her co-worker managed to preserve evidence of what he believed were falsified wait times for medical care.


Miller and her co-worker reportedly asked officers at VA to secure the documentation. Police declined, but suggested they find a safe place to conceal the documents inside the hospital. Twelve hours later, Mitchell said, her co-worker delivered the evidence and a statement to an IG investigator, while Mitchell went to the Republic, asserting status as a government whistleblower.

Mitchell told the newspaper she had fought for improved veterans care within the system, warning that Emergency Department patients were in serious trouble and, more recently, that suicides had increased amid a shortage of mental-health staff.

"I am violating the VA 'gag' order for ethical reasons," she wrote. She said that as a result, she was transferred, suspended and reprimanded.

Foote told IBTimes that he hasn’t spoken with Mitchell, his fellow Phoenix VA whistleblower, but knows her very well.

“Kate was an ER doctor there for a long time and kept raising absolutely legitimate concerns to administrators that were basically ignored,” Foote said. “She got so frustrated she presented her complaints to Senator John McCain’s office. The VA fired her, and then she went to the office of special counsel and McCain, too, got involved. She served a suspension and got her job back.”

Responding on May 2nd to Mitchell’s charges that that officials in Phoenix VA may have destroyed documents, HVAC Chairman Miller said in a statement: “VA Secretary Eric Shinseki did the right thing by placing three Phoenix VAHCS administrators on leave. But by no means does that commonsense step, which should have already been done weeks ago, take the VA out of the hot seat.”

VA Dr. Robert Petzel, who oversees the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), told the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee on Wednesday that a VA team sent to investigate Foote’s charges has found no evidence to support those claims. Foote in turn questioned the thoroughness of Dr. Petzel’s investigation.

On Wednesday, Helman and her chief of staff, Dr. Darren Deering, denied to CNN any secret effort to conceal or cover up wait times.

"We have never instructed our staff to create a secret list, to maintain a secret list, to shred a secret list -- that has never come from our office as far as instruction to our staff," said Deering.

"It's never come from me," added Helman.

Foote said his goal in going public was for the truth to come out and for veterans to get better and more prompt treatment.

"I don't feel like I am alone in this at all," he said. "Every veteran in the Unites States has a stake in this story.”
