(FTW) - If all of its dark alleys were explored, the case of Delmart Edward
Joseph 'Mike' Vreeland is one which is worthy of a book that would rival
'War and Peace.' It is a case that has sparked zealous attacks on FTW
and me personally, and one which has seriously disturbed many officials
in Washington. These attacks are an indication of the threat Vreeland poses
to the credibility of the U.S. government. Only one question of any relevance
exists. How was this man able to write details that described the events
of Sept. 11 while locked in a jail cell, more than a month before the attacks
It matters little to a housewife in Kansas if Mike Vreeland has a very
confusing criminal arrest record -- some of it very contradictory and apparently
fabricated -- for a variety of petty criminal offenses including fraud.
But it may be a matter of the gravest importance for the same housewife
if this man knew accurate information about the attacks, tried to warn
both the U.S. and Canadian governments about them, and was ignored. If
a crazy man runs up to you on the street and says that a house is on fire
with children trapped inside, and you smell smoke, who is the crazy one
if you decide not to investigate?
The U.S. Navy says that Vreeland, arrested in Canada on Dec. 4, 2000 and
currently fighting a U.S. extradition warrant, was discharged for unsatisfactory
performance after only four months of service in 1986. But a growing pile
of evidence, much of it filed in court records and undisputed by Canadian
or U.S. authorities, establishes clearly that Vreeland was exactly what
he says he was -- a spy.
In three previous stories, FTW has described how his military records,
acknowledged to be in excess of 1,200 pages, have been tampered with. We
have described how, in open court on a speakerphone, his lawyers obtained
direct confirmation from the Pentagon that he was a Navy officer. We have
also reported that, as of March 14, all Canadian charges against Vreeland
were dismissed. He was released on bail and also granted temporary refugee
status by the Canadian government until his battle to beat the U.S. extradition
request is settled.
Something that Canadian authorities have never disputed is that Vreeland
wrote his ominous and hastily scribbled warning a full month before the
attacks, and that the warning was sealed away by his keepers, beyond his
reach, until Sept. 14, three days after the attacks.
If he loses his extradition fight, both Vreeland and his attorneys believe
that his assassination will occur within days of his return to U.S. soil.
Mike Vreeland is not a saint. Covert operatives are not made from such
material, and governments do not recruit or screen candidates for saintly
qualities. By his own admission in Canadian court documents and in several
conversations with FTW, Vreeland says he has done bad things. He has been
on probation for petty offenses, and he has behaved the way covert operatives
behave in the real world -- not in Hollywood.
I have been studying, interacting with, and talking to covert operatives
for more than 25 years. It is for that reason that I avoid some of the
questions being raised by dilletantes and neophyte journalists who take
all of the threads of Vreeland's stories and run with them into a wilderness
from which no professional journalist could credibly emerge. Yes, I have
listened to him talk about so-called 'red mercury', baseball-sized atom
bombs, and Star Wars weapons systems. Yes, I have heard him talk about
a great many things, and I believe that what he told me was truthful according
to his knowledge of events and the documents he brought back from Moscow
in December 2000.
Even by his own statements, Vreeland, now 35, was a relatively low ranking
officer and an intelligence field operative. Never in the history of covert
operations has any government entrusted field operatives with total strategic
knowledge because the knowledge held by those who make the plans is compartmentalized
and locked away. Perhaps 80 percent of all intelligence work is disinformation,
and governments know that their field operatives risk capture, interrogation
and torture. Quite often field operatives are themselves fed disinformation
so that if they talk, they will still spread lies that serve a larger strategic
purpose. Quite often they carry documents that are deliberately inaccurate
and their capture is engineered to give those documents credibility.
To the U.S. government, Vreeland is totally expendable. And those who run
with every piece of information he has disclosed will themselves be proven
fools in a fool's game.
But one question remains. And it is a question that now stands vindicated
by time and events. He knew something chillingly accurate about the 9-11
attacks before they happened. And if he knew something, based upon documents
given to him by Russian officials indicating U.S. knowledge, and if the
U.S. government went to great lengths to discredit him, rather than bring
him in from the cold -- then there is real meat on the plate for journalists,
the American government, and all of mankind.
I have asked him 35 questions, and now you can read Mike Vreeland's answers
as he speaks for himself. The first 32 questions were jointly submitted
to both Vreeland and his attorney, Paul Slansky, for review. The remaining
three questions were asked after the most recent hacking of FTW's website,
which we believe was perpetrated by the CIA. This made the publication
of this story an emergency and also made a statement about the survival
of a free press in America:
1. What part of the U.S. government did you work for? Was it the CIA?
I worked for U.S. Naval intelligence. What the CIA directs us to do is
their business, so we have no way of knowing whether we're working for
them or not.
2. Was your assignment primarily connected to terrorism/oil?
Yes, on both issues, in part.
3. Why were you in Moscow and Russia in the latter part of 2000?
I was sent there by the U.S. government and the ONI [Office of Naval Intelligence].
I got my orders between Sept. 4 and Sept. 7, 2000.
Marc Bastien departed for Russia on Sept. 7, 2000. I had orders to meet
him. Bastien was going to work at the Canadian embassy regarding diagrams
and blueprints of a weapons defense system. The U.S. government had a direct
influence on his mission. The name of the defense system is SSST [Stealth
Satellite System Terminator]. There are five different individual and unique
defensive and strike capabilities of the system. The only portion that
I have publicly spoken on is one frame regarding actual current orbiting
satellites, which are not at this time owned by the US government. On advice
of counsel I cannot discuss the other components.
This one component is a satellite system. Within the confines of the system
there are multiple, deployable space/orbital EMP [Electromagnetic Pulse]
missiles that are not aimed at the ground. They are targeted at everyone
else's satellites. These would kill worldwide communications. The satellites
of some countries that are shielded with titanium are protected from these
weapons. The protected countries are Russia and China, but U.S. satellites
are vulnerable and Putin has told Bush that the U.S. missile defense system
doesn t work, and that Bush knows it.
The reason why I went to Russia was because I needed to meet with Bastien
and another individual from the Russian Ministry of Defense named Oleg.
The purpose was to get the Canadian diplomat who had made contact with
Oleg to get the book of designs out of the ministry's R&D. That was
done. We copied the entire book. Then we took certain documents, and we
changed serious portions of the defense design so the program wouldn t
work. They know this now.
Additionally I was to pick up docs from other agents and bring them back.
4. You told Canadian authorities that Bastien was murdered when?
I never told them he was murdered. I wrote a letter to Bastien around June
of 2000 from jail. I sent it to CSIS [Canadian Security and Intelligence
Service] in Ottawa, to the director for his eyes only. I had restructured
the diagram to put it back in its original state. But I never told anyone
exactly how to turn it on and how to build it. CSIS already knew that Bastien
was dead. He died six says after I was arrested on Dec. 6. I was discharged
on Dec. 9. He was killed on Dec 12.
CSIS sent RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] (Sgt. Mabe, Corporal Kispol)
to visit me in jail on Aug. 8, 2001, &and they advised me that he was
dead. They didn t say he was murdered. They told me he was dead. I told
them that is Bastien was dead, it was murder, and that they should get
a toxicology report. And I would tell you how it was done, and who did
5. When did they finally admit that Bastien was murdered?
They admitted that I was correct in mid-January.
6. When did you first learn details of the attacks that were to happen
on Sept. 11?
In the first week of December 2000.
7. How did you learn of the details?
One document was written in English by a U.S. agent, who had picked up
a copy of a document that had been sent to V. Putin by K. Hussein, Saddam
Hussein s son. This is what the translation of the doc indicates. The Iraqis
knew in June 2000 that I was coming. I didn t get my orders until August.
The letter said that Bastien and Vreeland would be dealt with 'in a manner
suitable to us.' The letter specifically stated on page two, 'Our American
official guarantees this.'
8. Who put the information on the attacks into the pouch, and what would
have been their motive for doing so?
I am not allowed to answer that. It would jeopardize the lives of active
agents, and it would violate the National Security Act of 1947.
9. After having learned of the details of the impending attacks on the
WTC and the Pentagon, how long did you wait before trying to notify Canadian
and U.S. authorities of the information?
On Dec. 6, 2000 I told Canadian authorities to their face that I needed
to contact the Canadian military immediately. I wrote it down. She [the
Canadian official] was playing games, so I wrote down that I was a Russian
spy and a weapons systems expert, and that I wanted to talk to them TODAY.
I said I was a Russian because figured it would get their attention. The
name they had on me was Mikhail Cristianov (Michael Christian), because
I had ID that used this name.
10. What was their reaction?
The Canadians turned blue, walked away, and I never saw them again.
11. How did it make you feel?
I was pissed off. It s on video [referring to a standard jail surveillance/security
12. Did the U.S. and Canadian response lead you to reach any conclusions?
If so, what were they?
I thought I was dealing with idiots who had no clue about what was about
to happen. It's been put to me that there were certain officials who wanted
the attacks to happen. No one ever had any intention of building the system
I was after because it would have made the defense budget obsolete. One
thing that happened after 9-11 was that the Pentagon budgets soared.
13. Your written warning contains the statement, 'Let one happen, stop
the rest.' Who was going to let one happen? Who was going to stop the
I can't comment on the advice of counsel.
14. Does that statement imply that the U.S. or some other intelligence
agency had achieved complete penetration of the terrorist cells?
That goes without question. Sometimes certain governments design, create
networks like Al Qaeda, which was really the government in Afghanistan.
Those entities create specific problems at the creating government's direction.
15. Do you know who had achieved this penetration?
I cannot comment on that.
16. Is it possible that the terrorist cells were being run without knowing
17. The most common excuse people use to discredit you is that you have
prior arrests on fraud charges, and there are several press stories linking
you to alleged criminal activity. How do you explain this?
The American Express charges are b.s., and Amex has stated on tape that
the specific charges in question were approved. They admit that there was
no fraud on this card. That card had been issued to Lt. Delmart Michael
Vreeland. The Amex people admitted that the card was a U.S. Navy card.
People have accused me of identity theft. If anybody checked with the police
departments in the U.S., they would find that there is not one police report
form any individual in the U.S. who has alleged that I have stolen any
identities. There is not a single identified victim anywhere. Three judges
in Canada have denied my requests to have discovery and disclosure on these
The press stories that have circulated about my past are lies. Portions
of the stories alleging fraud and ID theft are lies. I have threatened
to sue these papers, and the stories have been pulled.
I m working with ONI. Certain government officials -- politicians, brass,
and high ranking military -- have 11th Amendment privileges and can't be
sued. Another government agency has to go investigate activities connected
to weapons smuggling, organized crime and drug trafficking. They use their
power to break laws, and we re not allowed to investigate them. Thus certain
parts of the U.S. government designed an entity called UID (Unofficial
Intelligence Investigation Division). It was designed by Adm. Jeremy Michael
Boorda, who allegedly committed suicide. Boorda put this together prior
to becoming CNO [Chief of Naval Operations]. He was not a bad guy.
Intelligence officers are sometimes put into positions where they are given
assignments to infiltrate specific organizations that are powerful enough
to check out a newcomer's background. Page 335 of the Charter Application
in Canadian Court shows a copy of orders from Southern Command. These orders
are dated April 18, 2000, concerning an anti-drug operation we were mounting.
At approximately the same time the media released widespread stories that
I was a wanted criminal. This was a means pf providing cover and credibility
for me with the people I was infiltrating.
18. How many times have you been arrested on criminal charges?
Maybe three. Some of this I did, like a DUI charge in New York. I had been
at the UN, and I had definitely been drinking.
19. How many times have you been convicted?
I have never been legally convicted of any criminal, felony activity anywhere.
The drunk driving charge is still pending, and I have admitted in open
court that I did it.
20. The Michigan warrant for credit card fraud is based upon the use of
your own credit card. How do you explain this?
It is a setup.
21. Were your credit cards authorized or facilitated by the U.S. Navy or
any part of the U.S. government?
22. Could the U.S. government or any of its intelligence agencies have
'inserted' the charges through state and local agencies?
23. You were in custody in New York on the date the alleged Michigan offense
took place. What was the charge, and what was the disposition of that case?
That was the DUI charge.
24. Was working with organized crime families a part of your duties with
25. Were any of the organized crime families in Michigan?
26. For what reason were you working with organized crime?
I was under orders to do so 90 percent of the time. Organized crime supplies
the weapons and drugs that go to the people we investigate.
27. Are you afraid that you will be killed if you are extradited to the
Yes. Because I have spoken out.
28. Can you explain why the Canadian courts will not allow your attorneys
to introduce evidence that verifies your position with the U.S. Navy?
Yes. The Canadians are totally subservient to U.S. intelligence interests.
They're afraid of Uncle Sam. It would also prove that CSIS covered up Marc
Bastien s death, and that there was a cover-up involving a member of a
major drug organization that had planned assassinations against prominent
Canadians. In fact, one individual was found dead in a vat of acid. He
was a hit man.
29. What do you want?
I want my uniform back, my back pay at $4,210.90 a month and my honor.
I want President Bush to give me a full and complete pardon and the amnesty
of the U.S. government. I am owed that. I want Bush personally to know
everything that I know, and what kind of threats there are against the
It's never going to happen, so I am now seeking permanent refugee status
in Canada and the protection of the United Nations.
30. What do you think will happen next in your case?
I don't know. My attorney is in court seeking a postponement of the extradition
case because the Canadian government will not allow me to subpoena very
important U.S. witnesses from the Pentagon and other places.
31. Is the war on terrorism about something other than what the people
of the world are being told?
What war on terrorism?
32. What do you think will happen next in the war on terror?
Eventually, someone's going to have to tell the truth. Once those people
are dealt with according to law, there will be no more false terror spread
across the globe.
33. You have recently had dealings with an American journalist named Rick
Wiles. What is your opinion of Wiles and what was your experience?
My opinion of Wiles is that he is a psychopath, who will print anything
that will make him money. My experience with him was that I had private
conversations with him that he recorded, not telling me he was going to
post them on the Internet and sell them to the world. Then once I contacted
him and told him that he was not to do that, he said he would take them
down right now. Instead of taking them down he placed a bigger ad. He made
a bigger ad!
In my opinion he is neither honorable nor professional. He has placed my
story right next to a story about someone who talked to aliens 25 years
ago. Yeah, that's right where I want my story to be, right next to some
bozo who talks to aliens. The idiot!
So now he's selling this phony exclusive interview with me for $20 and
he's making all the money. He never had my permission to do that.
34. You have recently had dealings with an American journalist named J.R.
Nyquist. What is you opinion of Nyquist and what was your experience?
Don't even get me started. My opinion: I think he might be working for
the government. I did not know that he was writing a story about me. He
asked me some questions. I answered some questions. I recorded it, and
then he went off on a wild tangent about psychological crap, and I didn't
even read the whole story I was so mad.
He went off about the Russians, and it's all bs. He sent me this fax about
you saying that Ruppert was not my friend. He was saying that the Russians
had me boxed in. The truth is, the American government is boxing me in.
He's full of shit.
