- What investigators are quickly discovering is a global
Abramoff network involving Russian-Israeli criminal syndicates that were
involved in laundering money through Sun Cruz casino boats in Florida,
casinos on Indian tribal lands in the United States, West Bank of Palestine,
the Greek isle of Patroclos (which involved Israeli land developer David
Appel and Gilad Sharon), a Sun Cruz casino ship in Saipan, an Internet
gambling and lottery venture in Guam, and casinos in the Philippines, Sharm
el Sheikh in the Sinai, pachinko slot machines and casinos in Japan, the
Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Canada, Virgin Islands, South Africa,
and Abramoff's hometown of Atlantic City, New Jersey.
- The pattern that is emerging is that Abramoff and his
criminal associates not only used various casinos around the world to enrich
themselves but also used them to launder money into right-wing/neo-con
political campaign coffers in the United States, Israel, and other countries.
Prominent recipients included Tom DeLay's Political Action Committees and
Netanyahu's allies in the settler's movement.
- Former Cheney security aide, Leandro Aragoncillo, an
ex-Marine who was arrested while working for the FBI in Fort Monmouth,
New Jersey, is tied to Michael Ray Aquino and former Philippine President
Joseph Estrada. Aquino and Estrada, who were working with Aragoncillo in
transmitting classified documents on Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo
from Cheney's office to Estrada in order to help in his bid to oust Macapagal-Arroyo
from office, are also linked to Abramoff. A return of Estrada to power
in Manila would have not only benefit Abramoff's casino deals in the Philippines
but would have returned to country to the pro-U.S. camp in Iraq and other
- Having failed to unseat Macapagal-Arroyo in the Philippines
with the assistance of Abramoff's confederates, Cheney's shadow foreign
policy is now directed at assuring a Netanyahu win in Israel.
- January 12, 2006 -- Informed intelligence sources have
informed this editor that he has, since October 2005, been under an active
federal criminal investigation as part of the Bush administration's probe
of leaks about illegal NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens.
- To reiterate what I've stated before: I refuse to cede
my First Amendment rights and will not cooperate with ANY grand jury asking
questions about sources and I will refuse to turn over notebooks or other
materials to any investigators, warrant or not. I'm willing to become a
political prisoner rather than succumb to the fascist thugs in the Bush
administration. WMR is working on a number of investigations involving
The Carlyle Group, the Fellowship Foundation, and illegal surveillance.
We will continue to publish until the Bush administration makes their move
to shut us down. Again, your support has helped us to gain enough of a
media presence to make the Bush administration nervous.
- January 11, 2006 -- In a speech yesterday to the Veterans
of Foreign Wars in Washington, President Bush decried as "irresponsible
the partisan critics who claim that we acted in Iraq because of oil or
because of Israel or because we misled the American people." Mr. Bush,
this web site has written and offered proof that all three influences resulted
in your decision to invade and occupy Iraq, i.e., oil, Israeli expansionists,
and the neo-con disinformation and forgery machine. Mr. Bush, your authority
to determine what news and commentary is responsible and what isn't concerning
Iraq or any other subject is null and void in this small corner of cyberspace.
