"ZGram - Where Truth is Destiny"

March 29, 2002


Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

Joe Vialls, one of the widely read investigators of what really
happened on 9/11, has published another intriguing  question mark
about something we have been told was factual:  Barbara Olson's
alleged phone call from Flight 77 to her husband, US Solicitor
General Ted Olson.

Here you have Viall's "Mother of All Lies about 9/11."


This is a story about a little white lie that bred dozens of other
little white lies, then hundreds of bigger white lies and so on, to
the point where the first little white lie must be credited as the
"Mother of All Lies" about events on 11 September 2001.  For this was
the little white lie that first activated the American psyche,
generated mass loathing, and enabled media manipulation of the global

           Without this little white lie there would have been no Arab
Hijackers, no Osama Bin Laden directing operations from afar, and no
"War on Terror" in Afghanistan and occupied Palestine. Clearly the
lie was so clever and diabolical in nature, it must have been
generated by the "Power Elite" in one of its more earthly
manifestations. Perhaps it was the work of the Council on Foreign
Relations, or the Trilateral Commission? 

           No, it was not. Though at the time the little white lie was
flagged with a powerful political name, there was and remains no
evidence to support the connection. Just like the corrupt and
premature Lee Harvey Oswald story in 1963, there are verifiable fatal
errors which ultimately prove the little white lie was solely the
work of members of the media. Only they had access, and only they had
the methods and means.

           The little white lie was about Barbara Olson, a
conservative commentator for CNN and wife of US Solicitor General Ted
Olson.  Now deceased, Mrs Olson is alleged to have twice called her
husband from an American Airlines Flight 77 seat-telephone, before
the aircraft slammed into the Pentagon. This unsubstantiated claim,
reported by CNN remarkably quickly at 2.06 am EDT [0606 GMT] on
September 12, was the solitary foundation on which the spurious
"Hijacker" story was built.

           Without the "eminent" Barbara Olson and her alleged
emotional telephone calls, there would never be any proof that humans
played a role in the hijack and destruction of the four aircraft that
day.  Lookalike claims surfaced several days later on September 16
about passenger Todd Beamer and others, but it is critically
important to remember here that the Barbara Olson story was the only
one on September 11 and. 12. It was beyond question the artificial
"seed" that started the media snowball rolling down the hill.

           And once the snowball started rolling down the hill, it
artfully picked up Osama Bin Laden and a host of other "terrorists"
on the way. By noon on September 12, every paid glassy-eyed media
commentator in America was either spilling his guts about those
"Terrible Muslim hijackers", or liberating hitherto classified
information about Osama Bin Laden. "Oh sure, it was Bin Laden," they
said blithely, oblivious to anything apart from their television
appearance fees.

           The deliberate little white lie was essential. Ask
yourself: What would most Americans have been thinking about on
September 12, if CNN had not provided this timely fiction? Would
anyone anywhere have really believed the insane government story
about failed Cessna pilots with box cutters taking over heavy jets,
then hurling them expertly around the sky like polished Top Guns from
the film of the same name?  Of course not! As previously stated there
would have been no Osama Bin Laden, and no "War on Terror" in
Afghanistan and occupied Palestine.

           This report is designed to examine the sequence of the
Olson events and lay them bare for public examination. Dates and
times are of crucial importance here, so if this report seems tedious
try to bear with me. Before moving on to discuss the impossibility of
the alleged calls, we first need to examine how CNN managed to "find
out" about them, reported here in the September 12 CNN story at 2.06
am EDT:

           "Barbara Olson, a conservative commentator and attorney,
alerted her husband, Solicitor General Ted Olson, that the plane she
was on was being hijacked Tuesday morning, Ted Olson told CNN.
Shortly afterwards Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon" Š "Ted Olson
told CNN that his wife said all passengers and flight personnel,
including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed
hijackers. The only weapons she mentioned were knives and cardboard
cutters. She felt nobody was in charge and asked her husband to tell
the pilot what to do."

           At no point in the above report does CNN quote Ted Olson
directly.  If the report was authentic and 100% attributable, it
would have been phrased quite differently. Instead of  "Ted Olson
told CNN that his wife said all passengers and flight personnelŠ",
the passage would read approximately:-  Mr Olson told CNN, "My wife
said all passengers and flight personnelŠ"  Whoever wrote this story
was certainly not in direct contact with  US Solicitor General Ted

           Think about it, people! If you knew or suspected your
spouse's aircraft  had just fireballed inside the Pentagon building,
how would you spend the rest of the day? Initially you would
certainly be in deep shock and unwilling to believe the reports. Then
you would start to gather your wits together, a slow process in
itself. After that and depending on  individual personality, you
might drive over to the Pentagon on the off chance your spouse
survived the horrific crash, or you might go home and wait for
emergency services to bring you the inevitable bad news. As a matter
of record, Ted Olson did not return to work until six days later.

           About the last thing on your mind [especially if you
happened to be the US Solicitor General], would be to pick up a
telephone and call the CNN Atlanta news desk in order to give them a
"scoop". As a seasoned politician you would already know that all
matters involving national security must first be vetted by the
National Security Council. Under the extraordinary circumstances and
security overkill existing on September 11, this vetting process
would have taken a minimum of two days, and more likely three.

           The timing of the CNN news release about Barbara Olson, is
therefore as impossible as the New Zealand press release back in 1963
about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. As reported
independently by Colonel Fletcher Prouty USAF (Retired), whoever set
Kennedy up, accidentally launched a  full international newswire
biography on obscure "killer" Lee Harvey Oswald, without first taking
the trouble to check his world clock.

           It was still "yesterday" in New Zealand on the other side
of the International Date Line when the biography was wired  from New
York, enabling the  Christchurch Star newspaper was able to print a
story about Oswald as the prime suspect in its morning edition,
several hours before he was first accused of the crime by Dallas

           If the CNN story about Ted Olson had been correct, and he
really had called them about Barbara on September 11, then he would
most surely have followed the telephone call up a few days later with
a tasteful "one-on-one" television interview, telling the hushed and
respectful interviewer about how badly he missed his wife, and about
the sheer horror of it all.

           There is no record of any such interview in the CNN or
other archives. Indeed, if you key "Barbara Olson" into the CNN
search engine, it returns only two related articles. The first is the
creative invention on September 12 at 2.06 am EDT [0606 GMT], and the
second is on December 12, about President Bush, who led a  White
House memorial that began at 8:46 a.m. EST, the moment the first
hijacked plane hit the World Trade Center three months before. CNN
includes this comment about Ted Olson:

           "In a poignant remembrance at the Justice Department, U.S.
Solicitor General Theodore Olson referred to "the sufferings we have
all experienced." He made no direct reference to the death of his
wife, Barbara Olson, who was a passenger aboard the American Airlines
flight that crashed into the PentagonŠ"

           Regarding the same event, Fox News reports that,
extraordinarily,  Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson then said
Barbara Olson's call, made "in the midst of terrible danger and
turmoil swirling around her," was a "clarion call that awakened our
nation's leaders to the true nature of the events of Sept. 11."

           So Ted Olson avoided making any direct personal reference
to the death of his wife. Clearly this was not good enough for
someone somewhere. By the sixth month anniversary of the attack, Ted
Olson was allegedly interviewed by London Telegraph reporter Toby
Harnden, with his exclusive story "She Asked Me How To Stop The
Plane" appearing in that London newspaper on March 5,  thereafter
renamed and syndicated around dozens of western countries as "Revenge
Of The Spitfire",  finally appearing in the West Australian newspaper
on Saturday March 23, 2002.

           I have diligently tried to find a copy of this story in an
American newspaper but have so far failed.  The reasons for this
rather perverse "external" publication of Ted Olson's story are not
yet clear, but it seems fair to observe that if he is ever challenged
by a Senate Select Committee about the veracity of his claims, the
story could not be used against him because it was published outside
American sovereign territory.

           Regardless of the real reason or reasons for its
publication, the story seems to have matured a lot since the first
decoy news release by CNN early on September 12, 2001. Here we have
considerably more detail, some of which is frankly impossible. In the
alleged words of US Solicitor General Theodore Olson:

           "She [Barbara] had trouble getting through, because she
wasn't using her cell phone - she was using the phone in the
passengers' seats,"  said Mr Olson. "I guess she didn't have her
purse, because she was calling collect, and she was trying to get
through to the Department of Justice, which is never very easy." Š
"She wanted to know 'What can I tell the pilot? What can I do? How
can I stop this?' "

           "What Can I tell the pilot?" Yes indeed! The forged Barbara
Olson telephone call claims that the flight deck crew were with her
at the back of the aircraft, presumably politely ushered down there
by the box cutter-wielding Muslim maniacs, who for some bizarre
reason decided not to cut their throats on the flight deck. Have you
ever heard anything quite so ridiculous?

           But it is at this juncture that we finally have the
terminal error. Though the American Airlines Boeing 757 is fitted
with individual telephones at each seat position, they are not of the
variety where you can simply pick up the handset and ask for an
operator. On many aircraft you can talk from one seat to another in
the aircraft free of charge, but if you wish to access the outside
world you must first swipe your credit card through the telephone. By
Ted Olson's own admission, Barbara did not have a credit card with

           It gets worse. On American Airlines there is a telephone
"setup" charge of US$2.50 which can only be paid by credit card, then
a US$2.50 (sometimes US$5.00) charge per minute of speech thereafter.
The setup charge is the crucial element. Without paying it in advance
by swiping your credit card you cannot access the external telephone
network. Under these circumstances the passengers' seat phone on a
Boeing 757 is a much use as a plastic toy.

           Perhaps Ted Olson made a mistake and Barbara managed to
borrow a credit card from a fellow passenger? Not a chance. If
Barbara had done so, once swiped through the phone, the credit card
would have enabled her to call whoever she wanted to for as long as
she liked, negating any requirement to call collect.

         Sadly perhaps, the Olson telephone call claim is proved
untrue. Any American official wishing to challenge this has only to
subpoena the telephone company and Justice Department records. There
will be no charge originating from American Airlines 77 to the US
Solicitor General.

           Even without this hard proof, the chances of meaningfully
using a seat-telephone on Flight 77 were  nil. We know from the
intermittent glimpses of the aircraft the air traffic controllers had
on the radar scopes, that Flight 77 was travelling at extreme speed
at very low level, pulling high "G' turns in the process.

           Under these circumstances it would be difficult even
reaching a phone, much less using it. Finally, the phones on the
Boeing 757 rely on either ground cell phone towers or satellite
bounce in order to maintain a stable connection. At very low altitude
and extreme speed, the violent changes in aircraft attitude would
render the normal telephone links completely unusable.

           Exactly the same applies with United Airlines Flight 93
that crashed before reaching any targets. The aircraft was all over
the place at extreme speed on radar, but as with Flight 77 we are
asked to believe that the "hijackers" allowed a passenger called Todd
Beamer to place a thirteen minute telephone call. Very considerate of
them. The Pittsburg Channel put it this way in a story first posted
at 1.38 pm EDT on September 16, 2001:

           "Todd Beamer placed a call on one of the Boeing 757's
on-board telephones and spoke for 13 minutes with GTE operator Lisa
D. Jefferson, Beamer's wife said. He provided detailed information
about the hijacking and -- after the operator told him about the
morning's World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks - said he and
others on the plane were planning to act against the terrorists
aboard."  Note here that Mrs Lisa Beamer did not receive a telephone
call from Todd personally, but was later "told" by an operator that
her husband had allegedly called. Just another unfortunate media con
job for the trash can.

           As previously stated it is the Barbara Olson story that
really counts, a view reinforced by the recent antics of the London
print media. The photo at the top of this page is a copy of that
printed in the West Australian newspaper. You only have to study it
closely for a second to realize its full subliminal potential.

           Here is a studious and obviously very honest man. The US
Solicitor General sits in front of a wall lined with leather-bound
volumes of Supreme Court Arguments, with a photo of his dead wife
displayed prominently in front of him.  Does anyone out there
seriously believe that this man, a bastion of US law, would tell even
a minor lie on a matter as grave as national security?

           Theodore Olson's own words indicate that he would be
prepared to do rather more than that  On March 21, 2002 on its page
A35, the Washington Post newspaper printed an article titled "The
Limits of Lying" by Jim Hoagland, who writes that a statement by
Solicitor General Theodore Olson in the Supreme Court has the ring of
perverse honesty.

           Addressing the Supreme Court of the United States of
America,  US Solicitor General Theodore Olson said it is "easy to
imagine an infinite number of situations . . . where government
officials might quite legitimately have reasons to give false
information out."

Spying in/on America by Homeland Security

Now Playing: Spy Satellites Turned on the U.S.


Dems Call for Moratorium on Program, Expressing Privacy and Legal Concerns


Sept. 6, 2007 —


Traditionally, powerful spy satellites have been used to search for strategic threats overseas ranging from nuclear weapons to terrorist training camps.

But now the Department of Homeland Security has developed a new office to use the satellites to secure U.S. borders and protect the country from natural disasters.

Department of Homeland Security officials testified Thursday before the House Homeland Security Committee about the program and faced extensive criticism about the privacy and civil liberty concerns of the new office, called the National Applications Office.

The purpose of the National Applications Office is to provide the Department of Homeland Security and civil, state and local emergency planners with imagery and data from satellites run by the National Reconnaissance Office and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency.

Homeland Security Chief Intelligence Officer Charlie Allen said overhead imagery was used extensively after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, and has been used by the Secret Service for security preparations for events such as the Super Bowl.

"Some Homeland Security and law enforcement users also in the past routinely accessed imagery and other technical intelligence directly from the intelligence community, especially in response to national disasters such as hurricanes and forest fires," Allen said.

Committee members expressed concern about abuse of the satellite imagery, charging that Homeland Security had not informed the oversight committee about the program.

"What's most disturbing is learning about it from The Wall Street Journal," said Committee Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss.

The lawmakers also expressed concern about using military capabilities for U.S. law enforcement and Homeland Security operations, potentially a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, which bars the military from serving as a law enforcement body within the United States, except where specifically authorized by Congress or the Constitution.

In written testimony, Dan Sutherland, the Homeland Security officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, assured the committee, "We will assist the NAO by keeping a watchful eye on several key civil liberties issues."

Department of Homeland Security officials said that the National Applications Office would review requests from agencies such as the FBI and the border patrol for the imagery.

"We will not be able to penetrate buildings & there could be some infrared capabilities," Allen said.

Committee members said that in addition to not being informed about the National Applications Office program, they had not yet been provided with documents defining the limits and legal guidance about the program.

Late Thursday, top Democrats on the committee sent a letter to Homeland Security saying, "We are so concerned that, as the department's authorizing committee, we are calling for a moratorium on the program."

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Thompson, along with subcommittee chairs Reps. Jane Harman, D-Calif., and Chris Carney, D-Pa., also wrote, "Today's testimony made clear that there is effectively no legal framework governing the domestic use of satellite imagery for the various purposes envisioned by the department. & The use of geospatial information from military intelligence satellites may turn out to be a valuable tool in protecting the homeland."

The committee members have asked that Homeland Security provide the committee with legal documents and the standard operating procedures for the program before they consider the issue further.

Referring to the recent controversy over the potential abuse of the National Security Agency's warrantless wiretapping program, Rep. Harman said at Thursday's hearing that the Bush administration "has been making security policy in the executive branch without full regard for the laws that Congress has passed."

Allen said the National Applications Office would operate "in accordance with the laws."

Although Homeland Security had notified the appropriations committee of the program, Allen apologized to the members of the Homeland Security Committee for not being more forward with them.

"You briefed the appropriators, not the authorizers," Thompson charged.

Solar Technology is steadly growing

Looks Like Solar is Here to Stay

Steve DeCollibus, Managing Editor, Circuitnet

Today is the third day of the 22nd solar Energy Conference and Exhibition in Milan Italy.

The long history of the show, and the slow growth and adoption of photovoltaic technology in many ways defies the typical technology development cycles that we deal with in the electronics industry. What is a key take away from this show is that this is no longer an early adopter's game, but is a race for product leadership and for the technology that will win that race. The attitude and energy of the participants at this conference is extremely positive and it is clear that solar energy is a primary choice for alternate energy and will continue to be so for a very long time.

Many electronics equipment and materials companies have kept a hand in the photovoltaic manufacturing process. DEK, BTU, USI, Indium, Rohm and Haas, Applied Materials,Umicore, Cookson Electronics, Centrotherm, ASYS and many others have been quietly participating. Many of these companies started with thick film processes over 40 years ago and have continued to support both manufacturing companies and development labs with their products as they have moved into the more refined thin film processes and applications that are critical steps in creating solar cells.

One of the first people we caught up with at the show was Stuart Erickson, President of Ultrasonic Systems, Inc. He was in Milan to participate in the launch of the new BTU doping machine which was developed in conjunction with USI for high volume production of PV wafers. We asked him what he thought was the connection between what USI does in the electronics manufacturing space and what they will do in alternative energy.

"We are in the electronics industry through our activities in SMT, which include applying flux to circuit boards as part of the wave soldering process, we also apply conformal coatings to circuit boards and we apply photo resists & fluxes for the semiconductor packaging industry.

USI's specialty is applying extremely uniform coatings to flat surfaces. We do this using ultrasonic technology to generate a spray that is then shaped by directed air streams to accurately shape that spray. We have a lot of flexibility as to what we can do with the technology. We also have equipment available to do stand alone applications, to apply different materials and to develop solutions for specific customer needs.

Stuart Erickson, President of USI

We are an ideal solution for the creation of photo voltaic cells and fuel cells. Not only are we supporting the BTU process by applying phosphoric acid as a doping material for wafers as part of their diffusion process, we also have equipment that is applying aluminum for photo voltaic metallization process and equipment that is creating electrodes for fuel cells by applying catalysts and solvents. We are excited about the alternative energy opportunities that we are looking at, and are moving aggressively to participate in this sector".

David Preische, Director of Sales for Metals and Chemicals at Indium described their participation in photo voltaic cell manufacturing as an outgrowth of their metals and chemistry business, a business that has been in operation for quite a while beside Indium's Electronics Assembly Solder business unit.

He described Indium's involvement with the emerging solar market this way, "The Metals and Chemicals group has been involved in a number of different market spaces, including Solar. With the advent of the CIGS (copper, indium, gallium and diselenide) process, photovoltaic solutions have become a lot more interesting to us. Gallium has been a strategic part of our business for decades. With the CIGS technology Gallium has become even more important to us as far as supplying the growing number of CIGS based customers. At the end of the day our core competency is the sourcing of Indium, and we have extended that to include the sourcing of materials like gallium and copper."

"We are a materials resource to the solar market and support it the same way we support the SMT and Semiconductor packaging markets. Within the CIGS and silicon photovoltaic processes there is also a need for solder. Indium's selling proposition for customers involved in these processes is that not only can we supply what you need for the CIGS process, we can also help with back end processes that use solder and metallization pastes.

Darren Brown, Alternative Energy Business Development Manager at DEK shared a few observations with us regarding DEK's history in the solar market. "Solar process has been in development for the last 25 years, DEK has been making printing machines for over 40 years. We became involved in the development of photovoltaic process 25 years ago, and have really never been removed from it. The solar market has been handled up to now by our DEKJ division in Japan. About twelve months ago a decision was made to expand our business.

The SMT business is growing organically a few percentage points a year. We were looking to make a step change in the business and alternative energy was a key market that we looked at and that's where I have gotten involved. More specifically the solar cell and fuel cell sectors of alternative energy. The way the solar cell market is growing at the moment has indicated that the step change we are looking for may come from this market. The potential to upsize our business with Solar Energy appears to be quite dramatic over the next few years."

Darren went on to comment about the show itself, "The first thing that struck me as I walked into the show was its size. I expected it to be big but it was a magnitude larger than I was expecting. The energy of everybody walking around is very up beat and positive. Everybody we have spoken to is expecting to expand in the next two or three quarters."

In closing I would say the era of Alternative Energy is upon us, it is about to sneak into our lives as new technology often does, and it will make a huge difference in the way we live our lives. As an industry that runs by controlling the way electrons pass through conductive materials we would do well to consider the positive impact this will have on our business.

We've heard of stealth airplanes, but never a stealth airplane factory. What you're seeing above is a photo, circa World War II, of a Lockheed aircraft factory in Burbank, California. The US Army Corps of Engineers was given the task of hiding it--the whole darn thing--from air visibility, so Japanese bombers coming off the Pacific wouldn't spot it.

How did they pull it off? Click here to see how they disguised the entire factory as a suburb by wrapping it in camouflage netting, prop houses, and what has to be the largest trompe l'oeil ever made. It's Christo meets Carpaccio...meets G.I. Joe.

Flying Robots
Mood:  bright
Now Playing: New Technology for Environmental Use ?


(Reuters news)



A robot that can fly "like a mini-helicopter" and a second that can glide across ice will aid Chinese scientists during an Antarctic expedition slated for October, Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday.

The airborne robot can fly for an hour at speeds of 50 to 100 kilometers (30 to 60 miles) an hour and will be equipped with a camera and an infrared radiometer for observing ice on the sea.

The second robot can slide across ice crevasses and snowy slopes, the report said.

"The use of robots can reduce the risks and costs in scientific research," Xinhua quoted Qin Weijia, of the Polar Research Institute of China, as saying. "No matter how bad the weather is, they can still work normally."

The 200-strong expedition team will set up seismic stations in Antarctica to measure tremors and tectonic movements on the continent, the report said.

"Enhanced" Interrogation Techniques and the Risk of Criminality

A new report issued by Human Rights First and Physicians for Human Rights provides the first comprehensive look at the legality of 10 so-called “enhanced” interrogation techniques in light of the medical evidence on their mental and physical impact.  Many of these techniques are widely reported to have been authorized for use by the CIA. 


On July 20, the President issued an Executive Order on the CIA interrogation program that fails to prohibit these techniques.  The report finds that each of these techniques, including mock-drowning, sexual humiliation, severe isolation and sensory bombardment are prohibited by U.S. law and could subject U.S. officials who authorize or use them to criminal prosecution.

Continental Flight 1669Y
Mood:  irritated
Now Playing: I am Outraged about this type of Treatment on Continental Airlines


August 13, 2007 8:54 AM

BALTIMORE SUN reporter Meredith Cohn says:


Continental Flight 1669Y from Venezuela to Newark. N.J. was diverted to Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall airport on JULY 29th due to stormy weather. But according to 72 of the 120 passengers aboard, the weather inside the plane which sat on the runway at BWI from 2pm until 6:30pm, was a lot less pleasant than anything outside the aircraft.

There was NO FOOD, NO WATER, NO TOILET PAPER, and reporter Cohn says when the passengers who had spent "12 hours on a plane for a scheduled four-hour flight began clapping in protest, A FLIGHT ATTENDANT THREATENED ARREST AND POLICE WERE CALLED ON BOARD." In a letter to CONTINENTAL, passengers wrote "IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO NOT TREAT US WITH ANY DECENCY OR RESPECT AS CUSTOMERS OR HUMAN BEINGS, WE WERE NOW BEING TREATED AS CRIMINALS." The article says once inside the terminal the passengers claim they were yelled at, told to stay close to the wall and guarded by "OVERZEALOUS OFFICERS WITH AN ATTACK DOG."

The angry passengers have become among the newest members of the COALITION FOR AIRLINE PASSENGERS' BILL OF RIGHTS, a lobbying group started by Kate Hanna, herself an angry passenger, who wants CONGRESS to among many other things force the airlines to limit the length of time their passengers can sit on a stranded plane before being taken back to the airport terminal.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The U.S. citizen illegally deported from a Los Angeles County jail nearly three months ago has been found.

Pedro Guzman is expected to be reunited with his family today.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California planned an afternoon (1 p.m.) news conference to disclose details.

Guzman was deported to Tijuana on May 11th after immigration officials and jail personnel wrongfully identified him as a Mexican citizen. Guzman was born in Los Angeles. The ACLU went to court June 11th to seek government help in his safe return.
