Ensuring The Continuity of the Parallel Government

When Bush declares martial law, anyone who protests will be placed in an internment camp - Halliburton already holds the "contingency contract" to build them.
Plans for detention facilities or camps have a long history, going back to fears in the 1970s of a national uprising by black militants. As Alonzo Chardy reported in the Miami Herald on July 5, 1987, an executive order for continuity of government (COG) had been drafted in 1982 by FEMA head Louis Giuffrida. The order called for "suspension of the Constitution" and "declaration of martial law." The martial law portions of the plan were outlined in a memo by Giuffrida's deputy, John Brinkerhoff.

In 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 188, one of a series of directives that authorized continued planning for COG by a private parallel government.

Two books, James Mann's "Rise of the Vulcans" and James Bamford's "A Pretext for War," have revealed that in the 1980s this parallel structure, operating outside normal government channels, included the then-head of G. D. Searle and Co., Donald Rumsfeld, and then-Congressman from Wyoming Dick Cheney.
And if you thought that was bad, here are some news clips from something called INN World Report. The first clip is about those cartoons, which were actually first published back in October and have since been used as anti-Western propaganda by Islamic fundamentalists. It rather sounds as if extremists on both sides of the cartoon divide are agitating for further violence:
Free Market News also reports that the managing director of the company that published the cartoons is the wife of Anders Eldrup, chairman of Danish Oil and Natural Gas and an attendee at the last five meetings of the Bilderberg Group, an internationalist group that meets once a year to steer global policy, many believe.
The second clip suggests some pretty scary witch-hunts afoot within the CIA:
CIA director Porter Goss has launched a major internal probe into media leaks about covert operations. In an agencywide e-mail Goss warned that any CIA officer deemed suspect by the agency could be subjected to an unscheduled lie detector test. CIA personnel are subjected to polygraphs at regular intervals in their careers, but one former intelligence officer called the new warning a "witch hunt." The CIA has asked the Justice Department to prosecute any leakers within its ranks. This comes in connection with recent news reports that detailed the CIA's operation of secret prisons in Europe and its flights of suspected terrorists to foreign prisons. Goss says he hopes there will be a grand jury investigation, with reporters present being asked to reveal who is leaking this information.
Hopefully this full embrace of polygraphs will be extended to Bush, Cheney, McLellan, Rice, Rumsfeld.... Anyone for a grand jury???

The final clip is a real "hearts and minds" gem:
In the most expensive Turkish movie ever made, American soldiers in Iraq crash a wedding and shoot a little boy to death in front of his mother.The servicemen kill dozens of innocent people with random machine gun fire, shoot the groom in the head, and drag those left alive to Abu Ghraib prison where a Jewish doctor cuts out their organs, which he sells to rich people in New York, London and Tel Aviv.The film's name is, "Valley of the Wolves: Iraq." It opens Friday in Turkey and feeds off the increasingly negative feelings many Turks feel toward the US.The movie, which reportedly cost about 10 million dollars, is the latest in a new genre of popular culture in Turkey, that demonizes the United States. It comes on the heels of a novel called "Metal Storm" about a war between Turkey and the U.S., which has been a best seller for months.In the 2005 Pew Global Attitudes survey, 53 percent of Turks who responded associated Americans with the word "rude"; 70 percent with "violent"; 68 percent with "greedy"; and 57 percent with "immoral".
