Urgent Matter Of National Security

Please Forward to Your Colleagues

Dear Mr. Matthews, Mr. Shuster et. al:

If I could have just a few moments of your time to provide you with a lead to a stunning but little known and seriously disturbing chapter in the life of Homeland Security Secretary Chertoff. The ATF/FBI's Operation Diamondback targeted HMO owner Dr. Magdy Elomir involved in a terrorist arms deal with an alleged ties to Bin Laden and the ISI. Agent Dick Stoltz confirmed this for me personally. By all appearance, Chertoff, who was an Assistant US Attorney at the time, protected his former client, Dr. Elomir despite his obvious role in an attempt to purchase nuclear materials and other weapons from Diamond conman-turned undercover ATF asset Randy Glass.

Given Chertoff's recently announced 'gut feeling' about a terrorist attack this Summer I have a very strong gut feeling, based on some real intelligence, that it's an appropriate time to dig a lot deeper into this story. Please review the snippet below from a 2006 article on this subject. You can also refer to the appropriate clips in 9/11: Press for Truth for more details, Dateline video which you should also find in your own archives. This 2006 documentary features clips of a Dateline NBC piece that first brought Operation Diamondback to the attention of the American people but which failed to raise the question of Chertoff's history with Elomir and why he wasn't prosecuted to the full extent of the law by Chertoff's office.

Once you have taken the time to investigate this issue I hope you will produce a follow up to your excellent reporting on Operation Diamondback, especially in light of Secretary Chertoff's 'gut feeling' about an attack this summer.

Cheap Grace And Climate Change: Australia And COP26

It was not for everybody, but the shock advertising tactics of the Australian comedian Dan Ilic made an appropriate point. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a famed coal hugger, has vacillated about whether to even go to the climate conference in Glasgow. Having himself turned the country’s prime ministerial office into an extended advertising agency, Ilic was speaking his language... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Funeral Rites For COVID Zero
It was such a noble public health dream, even if rather hazy to begin with. Run down SARS-CoV-2. Suppress it. Crush it. Or just “flatten the curve”, which could have meant versions of all the above. This created a climate of numerical sensitivity: a few case infections here, a few cases there, would warrant immediate, sharp lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, the closure of all non-vital service outlets...

Dunne Speaks: 25 Years Of MMP - And The Government Wants To Make It Harder For Small Parties
This week marks the 25th anniversary of the New Zealand’s first MMP election. Over the last quarter century, the MMP electoral system has led to our Parliament becoming more socially and ethnically diverse, more gender balanced, and to a wider spread of political opinion gaining representation. Or, as one of my former colleagues observed somewhat ruefully at the time, Parliament starting to look a little more like the rest of New Zealand... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll.

Our Man In Washington: Morrison’s Tour Of Deception

It was startling and even shocking. Away from the thrust and cut of domestic politics, not to mention noisy discord within his government’s ranks, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison could breathe a sign of relief. Perhaps no one would notice in Washington that Australia remains prehistoric in approaching climate change relative to its counterparts... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Melbourne Quake: Shaken, Not Stirred

It began just after a news interview. Time: a quarter past nine. Morning of September 22, and yet to take a sip from the brewed Turkish coffee, its light thin surface foam inviting. The Australian city of Melbourne in its sixth lockdown, its residents fatigued and ravaged by regulations. Rising COVID-19 numbers, seemingly inexorable... More>>
