trea·son (trē’zən) — Violation of allegiance toward one’s country or sovereign, especially the betrayal of one’s country by waging war against it or by consciously and purposely acting to aid its enemies.[1] ~ The American Heritage Dictionary, Fourth Edition

American education may have substituted teaching children unrevised history for the technique of putting a condom on a cucumber, but at least legend has kept the name of Benedict Arnold in the national psyche.

Unfortunately, that is no substitute for a real education; one that tells you the whole story.

Benedict Arnold & John André

Benedict Arnold at Saratoga

Benedict Arnold at Saratoga

Prior to 1780, Benedict Arnold was a true hero.   During a courageous but unsuccessful attack on the fortress of Quebec, Arnold was seriously wounded in his leg. Although Quebec was not taken, a blockade was sustained and for that and his heroism Congress promoted Arnold to brigadier general in 1776. But the seeds of his discontent were sown; while he continued to distinguish himself in battle he watched other less-qualified brigadiers get promoted before him.

In October of 1776, Arnold’s heroic efforts caused “Gentleman Johnny” Burgoyne’s surrender at Saratoga.   During the action, he was again shot in the same leg as before, causing him to have a permanent and severe limp.

Arnold’s aggressive successes were a thorn in the side of his superior, General Horatio Gates, who made sure Arnold received no credit.

Congress added to his anger by not only passing him over for promotion but also finding excuses not to pay his wartime expenses — which he had taken care of out of his own pocket but which Congress couldn’t afford to cover.

His wounds effectively took him out of the war and General Washington gave him the military command of Philadelphia where he tried to bury his pain in lavish balls that he couldn’t afford.

But trouble still dogged him. He was now deep in debt and political attacks kept coming from his enemies. In June of 1779 Congress court martialed him for malfeasance and convicted him of two misdemeanors.

Even the lone bright spot in Arnold’s life fed the intrigue that lead to his infamy. In 1779, Arnold wooed into marriage Peggy Shippen of Philadelphia. Peggy was a beautiful young girl who had many courters, one of which was a British officer who had tried to win her over during the occupation of the colonial capital.   Though the officer was charming and accomplished, she was won over by Arnold a short time later.

That officer was Major John André. He spoke four languages, was a painter, a poet and could even sing.

He was also the head of British intelligence for the war against the colonials.

Arnold had finally had enough and began corresponding with General Sir Henry Clinton in New York City through André. Arnold lobbied General Washington for command of the fort at West Point.   West Point was of great strategic importance as it overlooked the mouth of the Hudson river and controlled all commerce in and out. General Washington graciously granted his request, not knowing that it had been made for the express purpose of committing treason.

Arnold continued his intrigue with the British who brought their top man—John André—to him via the HMS Vulture. After their meeting, André dawned commoner’s clothing and Arnold gave him a passport and plans on how the British could take West Point; both in his own handwriting.

But before André could make it back to the Vulture, he was stopped by three militiamen who, also wearing common clothes, had the appearance of robbing André. André thought he had got them to identify themselves as Tories for the purpose of bargaining with them until they proclaimed that they were Americans. He quickly showed them Arnold’s passport but now their suspicions were aroused. Although André claimed again that the soldiers only wished to rob him, he had to admit that they declined his lavish offer for freedom—to take his watch and his fine horse—in favor of escorting him to colonial authorities.

André was tried by a resoundingly impressive gallery of names; including General Nathanael Greene, Brigadier General Henry Knox, Baron Friedrich von Steuben and the Marquis de Lafayette.

Having been found behind American lines, in the clothes of a commoner, under an assumed name and with papers disclosing the tactical weaknesses of fort West Point, André was convicted of espionage.

Several of General Washington’s most trusted advisors pleaded for a stay in André’s death sentence. Washington — although a brilliant hand at the game of spying[2] — was still reeling from this unseen betrayal.   His only concession was that André would be spared if the British would return General Arnold to him (who had escaped with his wife upon hearing of André’s capture). The British refused.

So, General George Washington, the father of our country, fought every human impulse inside of him and served a higher call. For the sake of “justice” and for the sake of his fledgling nation, he ordered the sentence on John André to be carried out.   André appealed to General Washington to be executed as a man of honor—shot by firing squad — but Washington held firm and did to André what the British had done to 21 year old Nathan Hale four years before; had him hanged.

Benedict Arnold was made a brigadier general in the Royal Army and lead a raid against Richmond, Virginia.   This sealed his reputation as a traitor.

It is said that Arnold asked an officer he had taken captive about what the Americans would do if they captured him, and the captain is said to have replied “Cut off your right leg, bury it with full military honors, and then hang the rest of you on a gibbet.”[3]

By now, however, the war was becoming an excessive burden for Great Britain.   The surrender of General Lord Charles Cornwallis at Yorktown was the final straw. Arnold emigrated with his wife to England but he was never again trusted with a military command and failed as a merchant. He died of gout and “dropsy” in 1801.

The monument erected in Saratoga National Historical Park to commemorate his bravery does so without mentioning his name.

The Decadence Begins

Espionage was a major component of WWII. Perhaps the most famous was that of German commandos during the Battle of the Ardennes Forest (also known as the “Battle of the Bulge”). Teams of saboteurs were sent behind American lines to disrupt communications, alter road signs, blow up fuel and ammunition stores and even attempt to assassinate high-ranking officials.

Lead by SS Standartenführer Otto Skorzeny, these teams had the effect of sending the proudest names in the U.S. Army hierarchy like — Dwight David Eisenhower (once a clerk to General Douglas MacArthur) and Omar Bradley (nicknamed “the soldier’s general”) — into deep seclusion.[4]

Despite their expertise and training, however, many were caught:

On December 18th [1944] a suspicious-looking group of American soldiers appeared out of the woods near Poteau on self-propelled guns abandoned earlier by the 14th Cavalry Group.   Challenged by the American sentry of the 7th Armored Division, the Germans approaching in the distance replied in stilted English that “We are E Company!” Unknown to the imposters, however, the tank destroyers of a cavalry group are known as a “troop” rather than a company.[5]

Military tribunals were called and the saboteurs who had survived the battlefield (those of the phony “E Company” mentioned above, did not) were executed.

But such espionage was not confined to Europe.

Several attempts were made by Germany to land spies in the United States.   In 1942, Germany sent 8 spies, 4 to Long Island, New York and 4 to Jacksonville, Florida, via 2 U-Boats. They were all captured and tried. 6 were given death sentences, 1 life in prison and 1 thirty years.

However, unlike the methods the American military used in dealing with spies found in Europe, American politicians (not quite near the front lines) saw a less harsher reality.   Before all of the sentences could be carried out (4 of the spies were shot), President Harry S. Truman (Democrat) granted clemency to the surviving 2, deporting them to the American zone of Germany in 1948.

Amazingly, some of the spies were even American citizens trained by the German Abwehr such as William Curtis Colepaugh, who was delivered in 1944 via U-1230 and captured in Boston. He, too, was granted clemency by President Harry S. Truman (Democrat).[6]

Although the depth of treachery would reach new heights in contemporary times, the approach used by the American executive and judicial branches would never again see the resolve of our proud ancestors.

Communism’s Fruits: Julius & Ethel Rosenberg

Julius Rosenberg and Ethel Greenglass were a typical New York Jewish couple…except that they met each other at the Young Communist League in 1936.

Shortly after, the two were married and full-fledged members of the American Communist Party in 1942.

That same year, Julius Rosenberg was recruited by the KGB and dropped out of the Communist Party to avoid suspicion while he carried out his espionage activities.

Kangaroo-court “trial” of Francis Gary Powers in August of 1960. This national humiliation was made possible by technology Julius Rosenberg gave the Soviet Union.

By 1944, Rosenberg was feeding information to his KGB handler, Alexandre Feklisov, as sensitive and as devastating as the proximity fuse, a derivative of which would one day shoot down the U-2 spyplane of Francis Gary Powers.

Rosenberg also got busy recruiting other traitors who, in turn, gave over more secrets and technology.   One such traitor was Ethel’s brother, David Greenglass (also a member of the American Communist Party). David worked at Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico.   Greenglass began to pass vital information to Rosenberg regarding research on the first atomic bomb (codenamed “the Manhattan Project”). The importance of this betrayal can truly not be over-emphasized.

It took British and American counter-intelligence together to break the spy ring. As lesser names were captured, it eventually lead to Greenglass being arrested.   Through a plea-bargain that spared his life and kept his wife free to raise their children, Greenglass disclosed the involvement of his sister and brother-in-law.

The Rosenbergs did not present sympathetic defendants.   Rather than come clean or offer information regarding other Soviet plants, they both claimed the 5th Amendment of the Constitution and kept silent lest they “implicate” themselves.   They were convicted and sentenced to death in March of 1951.

Their death sentences were unique, made possible by the amazing intervention of Divine Providence putting a justice-seeking patriot behind the bench (something almost unheard of in today’s “adulterous generation”): Judge Irving Kaufman. At the sentencing, Judge Kaufman said this —

I consider your crime worse than murder…I believe your conduct in putting into the hands of the Russians the A-Bomb years before our best scientists predicted Russia would perfect the bomb has already caused, in my opinion, the Communist aggression in Korea, with the resultant casualties exceeding 50,000 and who knows but that millions more of innocent people may pay the price of your treason. Indeed, by your betrayal you undoubtedly have altered the course of history to the disadvantage of our country. No one can say that we do not live in a constant state of tension. We have evidence of your treachery all around us every day for the civilian defense activities throughout the nation are aimed at preparing us for an atom bomb attack.[7]

I tried to research Judge Kaufman’s religious background but the closest I could get where the very ethnic names of his parents: Irving Robert Kaufman, son of Herman Kaufman and Rose (Spielberg) Kaufman. I don’t think it’s a blind leap of faith to suggest that, like the Rosenbergs, Judge Irving Kaufman was also Jewish.

Although the death of any human being is never something to exalt over (even two people that did as much harm and damage as the Rosenbergs), the proper metering out of “justice” is. And to have the Rosenberg’s Jewish persuasion nullified as a factor in their treason by the man who passed judgment on them is absolutely vital to the fabric of our great Melting Pot.

And, really, more than just a little inspiring. It is the last time you will be inspired if you have the courage to read on.

Traitors Post The Age of Aquarius: Christopher John Boyce and Andrew Daulton Lee

I am indebted to the Crime Library website for giving me a well-documented source of free material from which to augment the questionable writings of Wikipedia.org, which can be a great source of free information but can be edited by anyone!

Christopher Boyce was born Feb. 16, 1953 to two patriotic and devout Catholic parents, Charles and Noreen Boyce. Charles was transitioning from working for the FBI to taking a job with Defense Department aircraft manufacturer McDonnell Douglas.

Boyce took to his parents’ Catholicism quickly, becoming an alterboy and doing well in school. Childhood friend Andrew Daulton Lee (a.k.a. Daulton Lee) was also a Catholic alterboy. Boyce’s mother was so devout as to refuse to practice contraception, as per Catholic doctrine.

While Boyce was a quick study, Lee struggled with academics yet was talented at woodwork and other manual crafts.

At one point, it became a neighborhood fad to take up “falconry”—the aristocratic “sport” of training birds of prey to kill other animals on command. The two practiced this “sport” together and it drew them even closer.

But their families’ affluence and typical teenage rebellion were ignited into hatred of America thanks to an education system that got Boyce to doubt the Divinity of Jesus Christ, and a news media that played nonstop, one-sided coverage of the Vietnam war and the Watergate “scandal”.

Uwe Siemon-NettoOnly a few months ago, international journalist and Lutheran theologian Uwe Siemon-Netto wrote a stinging retrospective of his time covering the Vietnam war; of how the U.S. news media painted the resounding success of the military’s defense against the “Tet Offensive” as a resounding setback. But even more outrageous was their purposeful covering up of communist atrocities, of men, women and children being clubbed to death and thrown in graves they were forced to dig themselves. Even more horrific were the grave sites in which the bodies showed signs of the fanatic horror of being buried alive.

As we stood at one such site, Washington Post correspondent Peter Braestrup asked an American T.V. cameraman, “Why don’t you film this?” He answered, “I am not here to spread anti-communist propaganda.”

And what does every schoolkid (or every friggin adult, for that matter) know about 37th president of the United States, Richard Milhous Nixon? “Crook” is probably the nicest word you’ll hear. What did Richard Nixon do to deserve one of the most infamous reputations in all of history? Did he round up whole sections of populations against their will and put them in internment camps based on their race alone? No, that was Franklin Roosevelt. Did he cozy up with perhaps the worst mass murderer in modern times (estimated by some experts as having slaughtered up to forty million people), Joseph Stalin, calling him “Uncle Joe” and turning all of Eastern Europe over to his tender mercies? No, Roosevelt again. Did he manage to pull off the unprecedented disaster of stagnating an economy while inflation continues unabated? Nope, that was Jimmy Carter. Did he personally give our most dangerous adversary, China, advances in technology and strategic advantages that should have put him in front of a firing squad for treason? Nah, that was William Jefferson Clinton. All Democrats who get a free pass from both the news media and the entire education establishment. Richard Nixon had his people brake into the Democrat party headquarters while it was stationed at the Watergate Hotel just to see what they had planned for the upcoming election (which he almost certainly was going to win hands-down anyway).

But the dirty press had a field day with the “news” and it was just one more reason why Christopher Boyce began to hate his country.

Daulton Lee found a way around his lack of popularity and poor grades by becoming a drug dealer.

After Boyce dropped out of three different colleges daddy hooked him up with a nice cushy job working for TRW Defense and Space Systems Group, a company that was helping the United States maintain her “spy” satellites.

Taking the trip to treason was made even easier by the outrageously inept security procedures.

Boyce claims that he saw how useless protesting was, and that it would be much more effective to give strategic secrets to America’s worst enemy, the Soviet Union (whose genocidal mass murder and massive civil oppression was just like what we have here in the United States…no, really).

He decided to run those secrets to a Soviet embassy in, say, Mexico. But he would need someone good with money and used to criminal activity to help him.   His good friend Daulton Lee was first on that list.

The incompetence of Defense contractor TRW was, literally, criminal—

Christopher Boyce, like the others who worked in the Black Vault, was often sent outside the office on “booze runs” to the liquor store. He would go past the guards, satchel in hand, and they would obligingly look the other way.[8]

The weak link in the cooperative was Daulton Lee who spent much of his time high, drunk or both. Lee even began bragging to strangers that he was a “spy” as well as sometimes keeping Boyce’s half of the money to feed his habits.

In almost two years of spying, Boyce reaped only $20,000. His motive was never money, however. The motive was revenge against a country that had disillusioned him.[9]

While making a “drop” at the Soviet embassy in Mexico City, Mexico, Lee found himself suddenly surrounded by a myriad of Mexican police officers who were on a stake-out. Unfortunately for Lee, Mexico was having troubles with their own radical Leftist “insurrectos” who also used a similar tactic. He had the gall (or perhaps fear) to appeal to the American embassy where a CIA Intelligence officer discovered incriminating evidence on Lee that pointed unquestionably towards espionage. What happened next says volumes about the reality of the differences between the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics—

The Mexicans…gave Lee a choice: he could be deported to either the Soviet Union or the U.S.   He chose the United States.[10]

Recall that they were spying for the Soviet Union and Lee still chose to face the American “justice system” rather than run the risk of having annoyed the USSR.

It was a good choice.

Of course, the interrogations in Mexico and the U.S. quickly uncovered Boyce’s involvement and he was subsequently arrested.

happy scumbag traitorProsecuting Boyce and Lee for espionage ran the risks of all such trials.   A public airing of the sources and methods of the crimes could further damage U.S. national security. Government officials were always on guard that too much not be revealed. In fact, the CIA and National Security Agency had concluded that the Department of Justice would have to drop the charges if the judge gave defense lawyers too much access to sensitive information…Unlike many defendants, Boyce took the witness stand.   He repeatedly, brazenly perjured himself…The jury was unimpressed by Boyce’s tale. After less than three and a half hours of deliberations, they found Boyce guilty on all eight counts of espionage and conspiracy to commit espionage.   He was sentenced to 40 years in prison.[11]

Commit treason? 40 years in prison. Do you think the executed John André was a better man than Christopher Boyce?

Because Lee’s defense was different, he was tried separately. Denise Noe described a marvel of Western decadence and stupidity created again by the media and education system of how a single juror refused to convict Lee because it was just possible that the CIA had put him up to everything he did.   Judge Robert Kelleher had to step in and sentenced Lee to life in prison (probably due to Lee’s previous criminal activities).[12]

A movie depiction of this escapade hit the big screen in 1985 titled “The Falcon and the Snowman” based on Boyce’s pseudonym (from his sporting falconry days) and Lee’s expertise as a pusher of cocaine starring Timothy Hutton as Boyce and Sean Penn as the stoned traitor Daulton Lee (a role Penn didn’t have to try very hard to become).

John Anthony Walker

John Walker first act of notoriety was to get arrested for theft in 1955 and be offered jail time or join the military. It was a great exchange that worked out well for both the United States and the Navy (which this sterling individual chose to join).

While stationed in Boston, Walker met and married Barbara Crowley[13], and they had four children together, three daughters and a son. While stationed on the nuclear-powered submarine USS Andrew Jackson in Charleston, South Carolina, Walker opened a bar which immediately plunged him into debt.[14]

What did this fine gentleman do to assuage his debt?   Walked directly into the Soviet embassy in 1967 and sold a classified document (a radio cipher card) for several thousand dollars, negotiating an ongoing salary of $500 to $1,000 a week.[15] It was all downhill from there—

From 1967 until 1985, he had provided the KGB with vital U.S. cryptographic secrets that had enabled Russian agents to decipher coded military messages. Soviet KGB General Boris Aleksandrovich Solomatin, who oversaw Walker, later called him the “most important” spy ever recruited by Russia. John Walker gave away the “keys to your most secret code machines,” Solomatin bragged, “giving us the equivalent of a seat inside your Pentagon where we could read your most vital secrets.” KGB officer Vitaly Yurchenko was more blunt: “Walker was the greatest case in KGB history. We deciphered millions of your messages. If there had been a war, we would have won it.”[16]

Walker was a quality man and a good father—

He preferred carousing with his shipmates to staying home with Barbara and the kids. On the rare times that he was at home, he called his daughters the “bitches.” Desperate to keep him, Barbara got pregnant again and on November 2, 1962, gave birth to a boy. John had always wanted a son and planned to name him: John Walker the Third. But Barbara, angry that John was at a baseball game with his pals when she gave birth, named their son, Michael Lance Walker, to spite him.[17]

Surprise, surprise, Walker cheated on his wife frequently after his brilliant capitalist venture bar began to tank. Are you seeing a character pattern here amongst the scum who betray their country??

He was shipped to Norfolk but the dummy had bought a bar in Boston which forced his wife to stay behind with their children and attempt to keep it from going under completely.

He claimed, at one point that he put a gun to his head but didn’t pull the trigger.[18] Oh if only he had. Unfortunately his new assignment as the watch officer in the radio message room at fleet headquarters put him in prime position to become a traitor to the Soviet Union for cash. The traitor took a radio “key list” to the Soviet embassy and asked to be put on the payroll with a salary of $1,000 a week. It was a request that the resident KGB officer was astounded to hear but, given the quality of the information he was glad to comply. No spy had ever asked to become an employee of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics before.

The Soviets told him not to spend his money conspicuously but he ignored them, hired someone to manage his bar and moved his family into a lavish apartment in VA. But, of course, that didn’t stop him from having adulterous affairs.

His wife caught on and, according to her,[19] joined him in a desperate attempt to save their marriage.

But then the Navy transferred him to San Diego where he lost his access to key lists and he began to go into debt again. He used his position to recruit a radio operator student of his, Jerry Alfred Whitworth by telling him that the intel they stole would go to an ally, Israel.

Walker, a source of illicit income assured, got out of the Navy and divorced his wife who moved to Maine where she had relatives. But, after some concern that Whitworth was getting tired of feeling “underpaid,” Walker began looking for others to recruit as traitors. He reached out to his own children who were overjoyed to finally get some attention from the scumbag but, in reality, were being terribly used. He got his daughter Laura to enlist in the Army but she quickly became pregnant and was going to take an early out. Walker, the quality individual that he was, told her to get an abortion on his dime so that she could stay in but, thankfully, she refused.[20]

Walker’s brother Arthur was working for a Defense contractor but had also fallen on hard times and was recruited.

Walker then went after his own son—

Michael idolized his father. While living with his mother in Maine, Michael had become a heavy marijuana smoker and had turned to burglary to support his habit. Realizing that she had lost control of her 15-year-old son, Barbara sent him to live with his father. John, who also liked to smoke pot, gave Michael a $100 per week allowance and acted more like his best friend than a parent. They even shared joints together.[21]

Walker is the one smiling on the LEFT.

Walker is the one smiling on the LEFT.

Walker got his son into the Navy where the boy quickly took advantage of several outrageously lax Navy security procedures.

Things began to really take off for Walker.   Unfortunately, they went in the opposite direction for his ex-wife who was forced to live with one of their daughters.   She got very drunk one night and, not knowing their son was involved, called the FBI. The idiot that she talked to blew the call off as the rantings of a drunk woman but he did file a report that went to agents in VA who took it seriously.

A short time later, he was caught.

After 18 years of treason and irreparable harm to the United States, did Walker tearfully face almost certain execution…?

No on both counts—

[Walker] agreed to testify against Whitworth and help the FBI determine the extent of damage his spy ring did. In return, the government agreed to go easier on Michael.   While everyone else in the spy ring was given a life prison sentence, Michael was sentenced to 25 years. He was paroled in February 2000, at age 37, having served 15 years in prison. Because she had tipped off the government, Barbara was not prosecuted.

In prison, Walker has remained unrepentant. “It’s all a game, man…history has proved me right,” he said recently. “How much damage did John Walker do? None. Absolutely none. The Russians never invaded.” The Pentagon disagrees. To date, it has spent nearly one billion dollars to replace code machines and make other changes in military hardware because of the secrets that Walker’s spy ring disclosed.[22]

Treason pays.

Aldrich Hazen “Rick” Ames

“Rick” Ames was born to Carleton and Rachel Ames in 1941.   Carlton Ames had worked for the CIA in Burma during the 50’s and it was almost natural for Ames to follow in his footsteps. When Ames flunked out of the University of Chicago his father pulled strings and got him a job in the CIA in February 1962.[23]

In 1972, Ames was assigned to work in Ankara, Turkey where his job was to “turn” Soviet agents to work for the United States.   He sucked at it and returned to America in shame.

In 1974, Ames was given custody over a Soviet agent turned by Columbia.   The man eventually began to give up quality intelligence but committed suicide just 3 years later when he was betrayed by “a Czechoslovak translator who had gotten a job at the CIA without it realizing that he was a KGB mole.”[24]

Ames’ handling of this agent was considered an “accomplishment” worthy of higher responsibility and he was sent to New York City, a “hotbed” of clandestine activity thanks to that city hosting the United Nations at “760 United Nations Plaza” where he was given responsibility for Sergey Fedorenko, a nuclear arms expert assigned to the Soviet delegation to the United Nations. They became fast friends.

But when it came to producing results—creating new sources of intelligence rather than babysitting someone else’s leads—Ames was a dismal failure. He was passed over for promotion and he began fighting frequently with his wife Nancy which usually ended up in a drinking binge. He managed to swing a transfer to Mexico City to finally “prove” himself but he was an embittered failure.

It was now that Ames decided the United States was winning the intelligence war “hands down” and yet the citizens were being manipulated to think that the Soviet Union was still a threat. Imagine, all of those nuclear-armed ballistic missiles aimed at our major cities with a vicious, tyrannical, blood-soaked government behind them and we still wanted to be “paranoid”.

One of Ames’ began having an adulterous affair with Maria del Rosario, the cultural attaché for the Colombian Embassy in Mexico. Apparently, she did not know he was married.[25]

In spite of several, clear personal warning flags and history of having accomplished nothing of substance for the CIA, Ames was given a promotion that would devastate the United States in a very short time:

He was named counterintelligence branch chief in Soviet operations, a job that would require him to return to CIA headquarters and would give him access to nearly all of the agency’s Soviet cases, including the names of all of the CIA’s “human assets” in the Soviet Union.[26]

Now Ames was exposed to information that shocked him, successes in intelligence gathering that, according to him, would have absolutely guaranteed Soviet defeat in any armed conflict. There were, indeed, some amazing assets working in our favor at that time, both technological and human. Ames would later bring many of them crashing down.

Del Rosario followed Ames to the United States after his promotion and pressured him to divorce his wife. Nancy Ames agreed to a divorce but used Ames infidelity to guarantee her most of the family assets.   Del Rosario then began running up large debts from things like calling her family from VA to Bogota almost daily.

The stage is set for Ames to make some quick cash at his nation’s expense.   It was only too easy to for Ames to go to a high-profile Soviet official that he was supposed to be turning and, instead, give over extremely valuable United States secrets.

For the next 10 years (from late 1984 to early 1994), Ames took outrageous amounts of cash from the USSR and devastated U.S. intelligence efforts.

It took a sharp female analyst to force the CIA to scrutinize Ames. He and Rosario had “bought a $540,000 suburban house with cash…[and] purchased a new Jaguar XJ-6 [while] Rosario refurnished [their] entire house.”[27]

After the FBI (the agency that handles making domestic arrests) finally busted through the judicial log-jam of being allowed to break into Ames’ house and find a treasure trove of evidence, he and Rosario were finally arrested.

Regarding the damage Ames accomplished, Wikipedia has a nice little list that I cross-referenced to the Crime Library article and it seems depressingly genuine:

  • Vitaliy Sergeyevich Yurchenko…a KGB officer in the Fifth Department of “Directorate K”…defected to the US only to later repatriate to the Soviets. Ames was privy to all the information that Yurchenko gave to the CIA, and was able to report all the information Yurchenko handed over to the KGB which allowed easy cover-ups of lost information (Cherkashin 219).   Yurchenko returned to the Soviet Union in 1985 and was re-assigned to a desk job within the FCD, a reward for helping to keep Ames’ spying a secret (Cherkashin, 174).
  • Dmitri Polyakov was the highest ranking figure in Soviet military intelligence (GRU) giving information to the CIA. He was executed in 1988 after Ames exposed him. Many agree he was the most valuable of the assets compromised by Ames. A CIA official said of him, “He didn’t do this for money. He insisted on staying in place to help us.”
  • Colonel Oleg Gordievsky was the head of the London rezidentura (residency). He spied for the SIS [Britain’s “Secret Intelligence Service” also known as “MI6”]. Ames handed over information about Gordievsky that positively identified him as a traitor (Cherkashin 179-180), although the SIS later managed to extract him.
  • Valery Martynov was a Line X officer at the Washington rezidentura. While a CIA mole was suspected to work at the Washington rezidentura, no one was able to pinpoint who it was. Ames handed over information that led to his arrest and execution (Cherkashin 187).
  • Major Sergei Motorin was a Line PR officer at the Washington rezidentura. The FBI blackmailed him into spying for the US.   He was one of two moles at the rezidentura who was betrayed by Ames (Cherkashin 187). Motorin too was quickly executed after he was exposed.
  • Colonel Leonid Polishchuk was a Line KR agent in Nigeria. He too was betrayed by Ames.[28]

And remember Ames’ “good friend” Sergey Fedorenko?—

  • In 1987, Ames was assigned to handle him, and Fedorenko betrayed information about the Soviet missile program to Ames.   The two men became good friends, hugging when Fedorenko was about to return to Moscow.   “We had become close friends,” said Ames.   “We trusted each other completely.”   Ames was initially hesitant to betray his friend, but soon after handing over the majority of the information decided that he would also betray Fedorenko because to “do a good job” for KGB he should really tell them every secret he knew. Back in the USSR, Fedorenko used political connections to get himself out of trouble. Years later, Fedorenko met his friend Ames for an emotional reunion over lunch and promised to move to the US for good. Ames promised to help. Shortly after lunch, Ames betrayed him to the KGB for a second time. Fedorenko escaped arrest, defected, and is currently living in Rhode Island.[29]

Pete Earley’s Crime Library article summarized it this way—

Ames…is one of the most cold-blooded traitors in U.S. history. During the nine years that he worked for the KGB as a mole, Ames single handily shut down the CIA’s eyes and ears in the Soviet Union by telling the Russians in 1985 the names of every “human asset” that the U.S. had working for it there.   In all, he sold the KGB the names of twenty-five “sources.” These twenty-four men and one woman, all Russians, were immediately arrested and ten were sentenced to what the KGB euphemistically referred to as vyshaya mera (the highest measure of punishment). The condemned person was taken into a room, made to kneel, then shot in the back of the head with a large caliber handgun so his face would be made unrecognizable. His body was buried in a secret, unmarked grave to further punish his loved ones.   It was part of the Stalinist tradition. Although Ames didn’t know most of the spies whom he betrayed, one of them was a Soviet diplomat whom he considered to be one of his best friends. Ames betrayed him, not once, but twice…Besides revealing the names of every U.S. spy in the Soviet Union, Ames derailed vital CIA covert operations and put dozens of CIA officers at risk. In return for his treason, the KGB paid him more than $2 million and kept another $2 million earmarked for him in a Moscow bank, making him the highest paid spy in the world.[30]

AmesDo you think the executed John André was a better man than Aldrich Ames? Aside from costing the American taxpayer millions of dollars in fighting the Cold War, Ames was personally responsible for brave allies of ours getting their brains blown out. What do you think President Washington would’ve done with him?

In spite of the “treasure trove” of evidence uncovered by the FBI, Ames’ prosecutors plea-bargained with him. He received a sentence of life in prison while his adulterous companion (who was not only fully aware of his activities but constantly hounded him to get more money from the Soviets[31]) got only five years.

Robert Philip Hanssen

I have saved the “best” for last (and, coincidentally, the chronological last in this “who’s who” of American treason). What prompted my research into this issue was my viewing of the movie “Breach” directed by Billy Ray and co-staring Ryan Phillippe as agent Eric O’Neill back on 02 March of 2008. If you’ve been surfing my pages you may remember Ryan Phillippe also played in the Clint Eastwood film “Flags of Our Fathers” which I reviewed, here.

Robert Hanssen’s treason has been described as “possibly the worst intelligence disaster in US history.”[32]

Hanssen was born to Howard and Vivian Hanssen in 1944.   Howard was a dedicated Chicago cop who took time off to enlist in the Navy before returning to law enforcement.

His son, however, was a dork in high school and a weirdo in college. He tried to become a dentist and his former room-mate remembered vividly having to tell the weirdo to stop wearing the same clothes over and over to cadaver dissection and then hanging them up in their room.[33]

Another college aquaintence had an even more disturbing encounter with Hanssen—

“I was leaving his house—I think it was 1968 or 1969—and Bob handed me the memoirs of a British traitor who had spied for Moscow over a 20-year period,” Lauren said. “The book was My Silent War by Kim Philby. He thought the book was terrific. After a few weeks I returned the book and he asked me if I liked it and I said it was very interesting. Bob then said—and I’ve never forgotten it, particularly now—he said, ‘You know, someday I’d like to pull off a caper like that.’”[34]

At college, Hanssen met and eventually married Bernadette “Bonnie” Wauck who was so intensely Catholic as to be a member of the secretive group Opus Dei which required attending “mass” daily.

Hanssen stepped on his father’s coat-tails and got a job in the Chicago police department where his odd, quirky intellect found him in a special “internal affairs” investigation unit and his sole purpose was to rat out “bad” cops.

Soon, even his own boss had had enough of him and told him to apply for the FBI which he needed to tries to be accepted.

In short order he was transferred to New York City and given a top flight assignment but, with 4 kids and only 1 income, it was soon obvious to outsiders that Hanssen already had a second income of selling “secrets” to the Russians. His wife walked in on him counting his money but, instead of turning him in, she made him “confess” what he had done to a priest.   He told her that he had actually given them false information and she let it go.

While on the job, Hanssen was quite the tyrant; a man with fair knowledge and intellect who had no skill at teaching or socializing and even less patience for those who didn’t understand him immediately.

He may have, in fact, given up “spying” (a cute word for treason) but the temptations you are, by now familiar with, started to rear their ugly heads—indebtedness and opportunity: in 1983 Hanssen was promoted to the Soviet Analytical Unit with clearance “above Top Secret”.

In a testimony to bureaucratic negligence, the tragedy was predictied by Hanssen’s boss—

Hanssen’s new boss, Thomas Sheer, was concerned. He told Washington that a beginning agent in his office made less than a New York City trash collector.   His men were vulnerable, he said.   If the Russians made a good offer there would be agents who couldn’t resist the money. When the bureau ignored the warning, Sheer quit. But Hanssen didn’t quit. Instead, he did what he had been preparing for all of his life. He went over to the other side.[35]

Hanssen’s next act was to disclose to a KGB colonel living in VA the identities of 3 Soviet double agents, 2 of which were subsequently executed and the 3rd sent to prison.

Hanssen tried to expunge his guilt through rabid dedication to his wife’s Catholicism which included his own membership in Opus Dei, constant attending of “mass” and demonstrating at abortion clinics.

But he was simultaneously a twisted, perverse individual who secretly taped the sex he had with his wife and sent it to his friend Jack Hoschouer. One time they even watched the tape together in Hanssen’s family den.

Robert-Philip-HanssenHanssen had extremely weird relationships with women.   He spent extended time with a stripper, spending as much as $80,000 on her but may not have ever had sex. Both deny it and the stripper spiraled away into drugs and prostitution so there seems little reason for her to try and protect him.

Besides his quirks and outrageous behavior (he physically assaulted a female agent) there were a great many ignored warning signs like his hacking into another officer’s computer to show how “insecure” the system was but many later assumed he was trying to find out if he was being investigated. Information Technology people, while working on his computer, found a hacking program but he claimed he only used it to avoid cumbersome procedures in getting access to network printers and he was believed!

Authorities knew there was a “mole” in the intelligence community but the activities of Aldrich Ames complicated their hunting efforts tremendously. This mitigated only slightly after Ames’ arrest in 1994. At a loss, the FBI decided to fish for clues with money, inviting an ex KGB agent to give them what they were looking for.

The former agent did have information—a tape of the prized informant. He called himself “Ramon Garcia”. At the time, the FBI was focused on an innocent agent and it took a while for someone to pinpoint the voice on the tape as that of Robert Hanssen. This allowed them to focus their efforts on Hanssen and they soon had enough evidence to make an arrest.

In spite of years of damaging activities giving information to the Soviets and, later, the Russians (some of which cost the lives of good people), Hanssen was able to plea bargain a life sentence.

General Washington would be beside himself.

Today, there is a new force that is beckoning traitors even more powerfully than the desire to make big money and a hatred for America…

Islam.

The Muhammad Connection

If you’re not a religious person, or if you only check the box on Sunday once in a while, you may think that all religions should receive equal respect.

Perhaps the easiest way to address this issue is something Jesus said—

Matthew 7:15-20
15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?
17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 So then, you will know them by their fruits.”
New American Standard Update

So what are the fruits of Christianity?

Christian charities made up nearly a quarter of the 100 best nonprofit groups for financial integrity in the United States, according to a leading nonprofit management magazine. Twenty-two Christian organizations were ranked in the 2007 Top 100 list by The NonProfit Times. Notably, three groups – Catholic Charities, USA, The Salvation Army, and Habitat for Humanity International – were among the top 10 best charities. To make the list, at least 10 percent of an organization’s income must have come from public support.[36]

Don’t bother whining about “the Crusades”. “The Crusades” were carried out by the Roman Catholic Church at a time when the average Catholic had no idea Who the Jesus Christ of the Bible was because the Bible was not allowed to be read by laymen.[37]

Even so, the deep, dark secret of “the Crusades” is that it is the practitioners of the “religion of peace[38]” that were the cause of them, not the Catholic Church or any other Christians for that matter[39]—

Although the eastern Mediterranean area was conquered by the Aravs in the seventh century, Christians had been permitted to visit the sacred places in the Holy Land until 1071 when the Seljuk Turks swept in from Asia and defeated the Byzantines at the Battle of Manzikert. Seizing all of Asia Minor as well as the Holy Land the Seljuk Turks soon impeded Christian pilgrimages to Jerusalem, forcing the Byzantine emperor, Alexius Comnenus, to ask Pope Urban II (1088-1099) for help against the Turks in the early 1090s.[40]

A Palestinian boy fires an assault rifle in celebration as children dance at the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp near the port city Sidon in south Lebanon September 11, 2001.

And what is the “fruit” of the “religion of peace”?—

For one thing, it seems that muslims revel in the slaughter of innocent people.

3,000 Americans were slaughtered on 11 September, 2001 for the crime of being Americans (some of them were forced at knife-point to become the very instrument of flaming death). Shortly thereafter, muslims around the world celebrated.

On 06 March, 2008 a single “Palestinian” muslim walked into the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Gaza City with an AK-47 and slaughtered 7 of the boys studying at the school there before an armed Israeli killed him. Upon hearing of the incident, “Palestinian” muslims crowded the streets to celebrate the deaths of those innocent boys.[41]

There are so many examples I’m going to limit the ones I have and hit them rapid fire:

  • Two women suffering from Down Syndrome had bombs strapped to them by Islamists in Baghdad and were detonated in a crowd of innocent people killing 73.[42]
  • The “Palestinian” Islamist movement known as “Hamas” uses a Mickey Mouse-like character broadcasting on a kids show how to be a suicide bomber and slaughter Jews.[43]
  • A Jordanian woman left home “without permission” for a year and divorced her husband. Her brother lured her back by claiming their father was ill, met her at the door, struck her, banged her head against a wall then strangled her to death in order to “preserve the honor of their family”.[44] In Islam, this is known as an “honor killing”. The National Organization for Women had no comment.
  • Something else America’s far-Left feminist organizations are disgustingly silent on: the muslim practice of mutilating the gentiles of little girls for the express purpose of insuring that they never experience sexual pleasure.[45] Unlike famous feminist (and Leftist) Gloria Allred, Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali frequently speaks out on this. She would know, she herself was mutilated when she was only 6 years old.[46]
  • WorldNetDaily’s Bob Unruh and international journalist, former Special Forces soldier Michael Yon broke a story that is seemingly unbelievable in its brutality of Islamists trying to strong arm an Iraqi family by baking their son and serving him to them as a meal.[47]
  • In order to perfect the use of chemical weapons against innocent people for the sake of causing the greatest amount of pain and harm, muslims first test those weapons on tethered dogs and videotaped their writhing in pain, carefully taking notes.[48]
  • Common “TTP” (Tactics, Techniques & Proceedures) for Islamists in Iraq is to put explosives on women, the disabled, children and animals and then detonate them when they can do the most harm.[49]

So, basically, whomever or whatever is innocent, dependent or vulnerable is what Islamsits zero in on to torture, mutilate and kill in the most despicable of fashions.

This is the force that now calls Americans into betraying their country or simply killing people because they are average Americans—

John Allen Williams (“John Allen Muhammad”)

john allen muhammad and lee boyd malvoIn October of 2002, John Allen Muhammad (formerly John Allen Williams) and teenager Lee Boyd Malvo murdered 10 people and critically injured three others in the Washington Metropolitan Area. They created a secret compartment in the trunk of a Chevrolet Caprice from which to slaughter innocent, unsuspecting citizens as they went about their daily lives (much the same way Islamists do in Iraq).

Williams was a member of Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, an organization whose other well-known leader—Elijah Poole (a.k.a. “Elijah Muhammad”)— who was jailed for WWII draft evasion and sedition (he openly supported the bloodthirsty imperialism of Japan).   Poole later talked heavyweight champion Cassius Clay (a.k.a. “Muhammad Ali”) into dodging the Vietnam draft and becoming a figurehead for the anti-American movement.[50]

Williams was basically a complete failure. He spent time in the National Guard and active duty Army but only managed to make it to E5 (Sergeant) before getting out. The Army did manage to teach him how to shoot a rifle, though. It was then that he changed his name to “Muhammad” and joined the Nation of Islam and may even have provided “security” for Farrakhan’s “Million Man March” (the perfect job for him) although Farrakhan has distanced himself from the murderer.[51] Not being capable of making it in civilized society, Williams then became involved in credit card fraud and, even more disturbingly, “immigration document fraud”.[52]

The ally of the Islamist movement is the Black separatist movement and, often, they are one and the same, vehemently and viciously attacking America. Williams received just such aid from the lead investigator in the case; Montgomery County, MD, Police Chief, Charles Moose who purposely mislead the public by telling them the suspects were middle-aged white men (even the vehicle description—a “box truck”—was wrong).

How ironic that Moose’s position of chief law enforcement officer for the county of Montgomery didn’t ameliorate the racial chip on his shoulder, much the same as Barack Obama’s wife, Michelle, in spite of receiving an education at Princeton and Harvard law school, being given a $300,000/year salary from the University of Chicago Hospital[53] and having enough combined income with her husband to afford a full-time housekeeper and a personal trainer she visits with four times a week,[54] states that she wasn’t proud of America until her husband became the Democrat Party front-runner for president in 2008.[55]

Williams is also a social misfit, having failed at two separate marriages. The best he could do is win over and indoctrinate a teenager, Lee Boyd Malvo.

After his arrest, authorities also claimed that Muhammad admitted that he admired and modeled himself after Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, and approved of the September 11, 2001, attacks. One of Malvo’s psychiatric witnesses testified in his trial that Muhammad had indoctrinated him into believing that the proceeds of the extortion attempt would be used to begin a new nation of only young, “pure” black people somewhere in Canada.[56]

One can only guess how much Malvo bought in to this outrageous delusion but, given Williams’ powerful role in Malvo’s life, it certainly had an affect.

Most disturbing of all, the Democrat Party (with the help of the “mainstream media”) is doing all it can to make another Lee Malvo become president of the United States.

Barack Hussein Obama has spent the past 20 years at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Chicago, listening to a man infinitely more dangerous than John Williams—Jeremiah Wright.

If you are curious as to what this “church” stands for, you can read for yourself (I’m not linking it, find it yourself)—

The Trinity United Web site tells of a “commitment to the black community, commitment to the black family, adherence to the black work ethic, pledge to make all the fruits of developing acquired skills available to the black community.”[57]

In 1984, Wright (along with his good Islamic friend Louis Farrakhan—hating America trumps allegiance to Jesus Christ, you see) made cozy with Muammar Qaddafi in Libya and Fidel Castro in Cuba.

Wright (whom I refuse to call “Reverend” and you will see why below), has stated to his 8,500 member-strong congregation:

“(Jesus’) enemies had their opinion about Him,” Wright wrote in a eulogy of the late scholar Asa Hilliard in the November/December 2007 issue. “The Italians for the most part looked down their garlic noses at the Galileans.” Wright continued, “From the circumstances surrounding Jesus’ birth (in a barn in a township that was under the Apartheid Roman government that said his daddy had to be in), up to and including the circumstances surrounding Jesus’ death on a cross, a Roman cross, public lynching Italian style …”[58]

  • Wright on 9/11: “White America got their wake-up call after 9/11. White America and the Western world came to realize people of color had not gone away, faded in the woodwork, or just disappeared as the Great White West kept on its merry way of ignoring black concerns.” On the Sunday after the attacks, Dr. Wright blamed America.
  • Wright on the disappearance of Natalee Holloway [Holloway was almost certainly raped and murdered]: “Black women are being raped daily in Africa [by black African muslims!!!]. One white girl from Alabama gets drunk at a graduation trip to Aruba, goes off and gives it up while in a foreign country and that stays in the news for months.”
  • Wright on Israel: “The Israelis have illegally occupied Palestinian territories for over 40 years now. Divestment has now hit the table again as a strategy to wake the business community and wake up Americans concerning the injustice and the racism under which the Palestinians have lived because of Zionism.”
  • Wright on America: He has used the term “middleclassness” in a derogatory manner; frequently mentions “white arrogance” and the “oppression” of [black]-Americans today; and has referred to “this racist United States of America.” [Who hasn’t heard “Reverend” Wright’s “U.S. of KKK A.” remark?][59]

You know how this “man of God” landed his current wife?   He wooed her away from one of his congregants. She and her former husband were going to the good Reverend for “marriage counseling.”[60]

Oh, by the way? —Reverend Wright is now retiring into a $1.6 million dollar, 10,340 square foot home in a gated community, not in Africa, but in Chicago.[61]

Here’s a few things that come to my mind regarding what is in store for this mouthpiece of satan—

The Jesus *I* know well says:

Matthew 7:21-23
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘L-rd, L-rd,’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the Will of My Father who is in Heaven will enter.
22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘L-rd, L-rd, did we not prophesy in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out demons, and in Your Name perform many miracles?’
23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS!’”
New American Standard Update (capitalization and abbreviation added to correct disrespect)

The L-rd’s half-brother said:

James 3:1-2
1 Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, knowing that as such we will incur a stricter judgment.
2 For we all stumble in many ways.
New American Standard Update (emphasis added)

Matthew 18:6
6 …whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea!
NASU

This is not a comprehensive list of all the blasphemous, traitorous things Wright has said from the pulpit (like the American government created AIDS for the express purpose of killing black people[62]), but what is more important is how much sway he had on Barack Obama.

We have enough information to make an educated guess:

Since the 1980s, Obama has not only remained a regular attendee at Wright’s services in his inner city mega church, Trinity United Church of Christ, along with its other 8,500 members, he’s been a close disciple and personal friend of Wright. Wright conducted Obama’s marriage to his wife Michelle, baptized his two daughters, and blessed Obama’s Chicago home. Obama’s best-selling book, “The Audacity of Hope,” takes its title from one of Wright’s sermons.[63]

messiah and whack-a-doodleIn 2006, Obama gave Wright’s “church” $22,500 in donations.[64]

He is currently the Democrat Party’s presidential front-runner. Is it still not OK to question their patriotism…???

Fortunately for the families of those murdered by Williams and Malvo, for Americans and for justice, Williams was tried and convicted in VA and received the death sentence. In just 20 short years, justice will be served (unless Leftists lawyers and judges don’t overturn the verdict…or Leftist politicians don’t put a “moratorium” on capital punishment as they did in NJ[65]).

________________________________

Here is a useful summary by author Hal Lindsey of random acts of violence inspired by “the religion of peace”—

In February 2007, Sulejman Talovic, a Bosnian Muslim walked into the “Union Station” shopping mall in Utah and opened fire murdering 5 people before he was stopped. Both the media and local law enforcement were baffled as to why he did it.

  • Ismail Yassin Mohamed, 22, stole a car in Minneapolis.   He went on a rampage, ramming the stolen car into other cars and then stealing a van and continuing to ram other cars, injuring one person. During his rampage, Mohamed repeatedly yelled, “Die, die, die, kill, kill, kill,” and when asked why he did all this, he replied, “Allah made me do it.”
  • Omeed Aziz Popal, a Muslim from Afghanistan, killed one person and injured 14 during a murderous drive through San Francisco city streets in August 2006, during which he targeted people on crosswalks and sidewalks.   He identified himself as a terrorist after his rampage. Later the murders were ascribed to Popal’s mental problems, and to stress arising from his impending arranged marriage.
  • On July 28, 2006, a Muslim named Naveed Afzal Haq forced his way into the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. Once inside, Haq announced, “I’m a Muslim American; I’m angry at Israel,” and then began shooting, killing one woman and injuring five more.   FBI assistant special agent David Gomez stated: “We believe … it’s a lone individual acting out his antagonism.   There’s nothing to indicate that it’s terrorism-related. But we’re monitoring the entire situation.”
  • In March 2006, a 22-year-old Iranian student named Mohammed Reza Taheri-azar drove an SUV onto the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, deliberately trying to kill people and succeeding in injuring nine. During his arraignment, he explained that he was “thankful for the opportunity to spread the will of Allah.”

Officials dismissed the possibility of terrorism, even after Taheri-azar wrote a series of letters to the UNC campus newspaper detailing the Islamic justification for warfare against unbelievers and explaining why he believed his attacks were justified from an Islamic perspective.

The FBI and the media assured the public in every case that there was no connection between Islam and the attacks.[66]

________________________________

Joel “Henry” Hinrichs III

This incident struck close to home for both my wife and I.

On the evening of 1 October, 2005, Hinrichs tried to gain access to a packed Oklahoma University football stadium. He was wearing a backpack—

He had a ticket to the game, but was turned away because he didn’t want his pack searched.[67]

Joel “Henry” Hinrichs IIIApparently, he then sat down on a bench outside the stadium. Moments later, an explosion rocked the busses parked nearby as a device Hinrichs had concealed in his pack exploded, killing him instantly.

OU President David Boren, a former Democrat Oklahoma governor and U.S. Senator, quickly made a statement to the effect that Hinrichs was “emotionally distraught” and simply wanted to commit suicide.[68]

At a packed football stadium.

With a bomb.

I think we can all agree it is an extremely common way to kill oneself, is it not? —Locked garage with a running car, belt around the neck and a ceiling fixture, gun in the mouth, bomb in a backpack in a crowded facility. Happens all the time. He was just “depressed”.

Amazingly enough, FBI Investiagor Salvador Hernandez, U.S. Attorney John Richter and crack, professional OU Police Chief Elizabeth Woolen all got together and assured the public that neither they, nor students like my wife (at the time working towards her BA in Music Performance at OU) had nothing to fear.[69]

If you are unfamiliar with this story it’s because the media didn’t cover it. “Nothing to look at here. Move along…move along.”

I guess agent Hernandez must’ve been privy to more information than he lead us to believe in his brief statement because law enforcement officials felt they had good reason to break in to the deceased’s apartment. What they were looking at, we’ll never know because the search warrant was sealed by the Justice Department.[70]

Fortunately, the team at WorldNetDaily was on the job and it was discovered that Hinrichs, in fact, was in possession of a wealth of jihadi material including how to make bombs[71]. Imagine that.

Another odd factoid was that Hinrichs shared his apartment with a Pakistani roommate who could not be located after the incident.[72]

But, most disturbing of all, was the background of Joel Henry Hinrichs; he was an average, American country boy—

Originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado, Hinrichs was a National Merit Scholar who graduated from Wasson High School in May 2002.[73]

That is, until he was drawn to attend the Islamic Society of Norman. The same “Islamic Society” where the so-called 20th [September 11th] Hijacker, Zacharias Moussaoui studied the “religion of peace”.[74]

In spite of the across-the-board ban on “profiling” by Leftist authorities in this country, there are still some hard-working law enforcement officials that know how to spot a possible problem in a person’s appearance and body language. Perhaps this is an attempt by Islamists to make their jobs that much more difficult.[75]

________________________________

There are many patriotic, self-sacrificing Americans who have volunteered to go to Iraq to fight our enemies there. There are some other Americans, however, who have volunteered to go to Iraq to kill those same Americans. As of July of last year, the military was holding five such individuals.[76] Wanna guess what their religious persuasion is?

In 2006, Khalid Chahhou, a high-school Spanish teacher at Smithfield-Selma High School in North Carolina was forced to resign after it was discovered that he had given his students a quaint little word-search puzzle that, when you put it together it read—

[Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon killed a lot of innocent people in Palestine.   Hamas is not a terrorist group.   They have the right to defend their country. This is something that forms part of our freedom and dignity. Allah help destroy this body of evil that is making human life so miserable. Destroy America, a country where evil is sponsored.”[77]

After the loss of 343 firemen during the September 11, 2001 Islamist attacks, the New York city fire department found the wisdom a mere 4 years later to bring in a muslim chaplain. He didn’t last long, however, when he started making statements that questioned who was “really” behind 9/11.[78]

Earlier this year, al Qaeda released a propaganda video in which the “spokesman” called on Islamists to greet President Bush with “bombs and booby-trapped vehicles” when he visits the Middle East. The man was later identified as Adam Gadahn, an American citizen born in California.[79]

At the “hell” that is the Islamist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, inmates receive the benefit of a muslim chaplain counselor. One of those counselors, an Army captain and West Point alumnus, James Yee, was detained after being caught with detailed maps of the post showing the locations of each detainee.[80]

asan akbarAsan Akbar, a sergeant with the 326th Engineers was deployed to Iraq in 2003 when he decided it was time to take action…against his own chain of command. Akbar rolled hand grenades into the tents of several officers and, when they rushed out opened fire with his service rifle. Three were seriously wounded, twelve others needed medical attention. Army Captain Christopher Seifert and Air Force Major Gregory Stone gave their lives that day. Not to foreign guerrillas or enemy soldiers, but to an Army sergeant who happened to be muslim.

Akbar was formerly known as “Mark Fidel Kools” but, supposedly had his name changed by his mother, “Quran Bilal” whose own dedication to the “religion of peace” seems to have caused her to change her name as well (although this was not referenced by the below article)—

One address for Mark Fidel Kools in Los Angeles is the Bilal Islamic Center…[81]

The motivation behind Kools’ behavior was a complete mystery to the dedicated news-reporting team at CNN[82] (but things seemed a little more clear to commentator and columnist Michelle Malkin[83]).

One thing the Islamists do have right: the West is most certainly decadent and weak and a frightening successful attack on the scale of September 11th or worse is only a matter of time.

UPDATE 01:

Now let’s tie this all together, shall we? Islam, treason and American decadence that desecrates the blood of thousands upon thousands of patriots who have given their lives to secure this great nation across her once-proud history…

Nada Nadim Prouty $750 fine, no jail-time.

Nada Nadim Prouty $750 fine, no jail-time.

Nada Nadim Prouty is a Lebanese woman who came to America on a student visa. After it expired in 1990, she paid an indigent United States citizen (she must’ve scoured to find one) to marry her so that she could stay on.[84] She must’ve had something really important on her mind. Maybe she just really, really loves America.

Um…by the way? Such a “marriage” is also known as “fraud”.

But she was a Lebanese who spoke vital enemy languages and, thanks to the Leftist, suicidal lunacy of William Jefferson “playah’” Clinton who destroyed our Human Intelligence assets during his reign of depravity,[85] the FBI and the CIA all jumped at her services like sailor pulling for Liberty at Bangkok. Unfortunately for us, they were just a little too desperate to properly check this individual’s background.

Samar Spinelli $500 fine, no jail-time.

Samar Spinelli $500 fine, no jail-time.

Well, while she was working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, she helped herself to files regarding an ongoing investigation.   She seemed very concerned about the well-being of a restaurant owner named “Talal Chahine” (she also checked to see if she, herself, was ever investigated). Oddly enough, Chahine was married to someone she knew very well—her sister.[86]

Now, call me crazy, but the organization that appeared to have the most to gain by her busy activities was “Hezbollah”. You remember “Hezbollah”, don’t you? These are the same nice guys who sit in Lebanese schoolyards and launch rockets into Israel.[87] Who are they aiming at? Just anyone who lives in Israel; man, woman, child, Jew, Arab, it doesn’t matter.   Their only crime? —Living in Israel.

No one knows the extent of the information she was able to get out to this wonderful group before she was caught.

But it was three years after she stole the classified information before she was caught.   During that time (2003), this “valuable asset” was loaned by the FBI to the CIA to help debrief jihadis in Iraq![88]

But it gets better. It seems that she also had ties to the “Syrian National Socialist Party”.   Basically Arab Nazis.[89]

She has a sister who pulled the same fraud gambit to become a citizen. This sister was then made an officer in the United States Marine Corps. Oo-rah. Nice going you PC POGu[90] terds. She, too, committed espionage for “Hezbollah”.

And the best is last: what do you think these 2 should get?   Life in prison? Death? Given the amount of blood “Hezbollah” has on its hands, and how dangerous they are, the sentences should be strong, indeed.

Nope.

UPDATE 02:

Gotta tip my cover to Michelle Malkin for this.

Remember our upstanding citizen, John Allen Williams (a.k.a. “John Allen Muhammad”)? After it was proven that he was a cold-blooded barbaric murderer, some investigators in the Army said, “Wait a minute! Let’s look at where this guy served.”

The accused Beltway sniper and Muslim convert was a member of the Army’s 84th Engineering Company.   In an eerie parallel to the Akbar case, Muhammad is suspected of throwing a thermite grenade into a tent housing 16 of his fellow soldiers as they slept before the ground-attack phase of Gulf War I in 1991. Muhammad’s superior, Sgt. Kip Berentson, told both Newsweek and The Seattle Times that he immediately suspected Muhammad, who was “trouble from day one.”

Curiously, Muhammad was admitted to the Army despite being earlier court-martialed for willfully disobeying orders, striking another noncommissioned officer, wrongfully taking property, and being absent without leave while serving in the Louisiana National Guard.

Although Muhammad was led away in handcuffs and transferred to another company pending charges for the grenade attack, an indictment never materialized. Muhammad was honorably discharged from the Army in 1994.   Eight years later, he was arrested in the 21-day Beltway shooting spree that left 10 dead and three wounded.[91]

There is an old New Jersey propaganda commercial that aired back in the days of good ole’ Tom “Stay Out of Our Business” Kean[92] that had him saying stupidly, “New Jersey and you, perfect together.”

Islam and black separatism.

Perfect together.

[90] I’m overloading my footnotes but I need to explain that “POGu” (which I have correctly abbreviated) stands for “People Other (then) Grunts” which is another way of saying jerks in the military who don’t have to live in the mud or grunt under a rucksack and who throw out warrior practicality for the sake of Pentagon/Washington D.C. political correctness like making a Lebanese liar and female a leader (officer) of Marines. Can you tell I’m a little sour on women in the military? Although I’ve worked with some awesome, patriotic, “get ‘er done” females, the policy is wrong, wrong, wrong.

[92] Late in 2002, the politicians decided that they needed to look like they were really concerned about “getting to the bottom” of how the Islamists could pull off the September 11, 2001 attacks.   Anyone with the slightest knowledge of the truth fully understood that it was the massive, fundamental damage that the Clinton administration and all their rabid Leftist croanies had done to the military and, especially, the intelligence community that was the real culprit. When the then Attorney General John Ashcroft brought this to light by disclosing that one of the 9/11 Commissioners (Jamie Gorelick) had, in fact, written a memo telling the various intelligence agencies NOT to share information—and, thereby, weakening our collective efforts to stop our enemies—the Republican chairman of the 9/11 Commission, one Thomas Kean, stated that the press should “stay out of our business”. Yep, the 9/11 Commission was “non-partisan” alright.   It was an equal opportunity whitewash.
