- hVery few Americans, not directly affected by this man
of many faces have no idea, of who really directs the duties of the 180,000
government employees in DHS: Duties that this man now holds in his stained
and conflicted hands. It seems that the variety of controversies which
have paralleled Michael Chertoff's meteoric rise in government have been
allowed to languish in the shadows for far too long. If the public does
not soon become familiar with who their Director of Homeland Security really
is-then they may live to regret that oversight. The details of Michael
Chertoff's personal history should have disqualified him for high office:
but instead his nomination for this job was approved without objection
by the Senate.
- "The Senate voted 98-0 to approve Chertoff on February
15. Chertoff, 51, took the oath of office that night in "a private
ceremony at the White House."
- DHS has a $32 billion budget, 180,000 employees, and
jurisdiction over immigration, customs and transportation security, the
Coast Guard, the Secret Service and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
- The question of Chertoff's dual-nationality doesn't seem
to have concerned a single U.S. senator.
- Many have wondered who let the detained suspected Israeli
agents go back to Israel, immediately after 911. Apparently it was Michael
- "Chertoff allowed scores of suspected Israeli terrorists
and spies to quietly return to Israel . In several cases, Israeli suspects
working for phoney moving companies, such as Urban Moving Systems from
Weehawken, N.J., were caught driving moving vans which tested positive
for explosives. On September 14, Dominic Suter, the owner of the moving
company, which was found to be a Mossad front company, fled to Israel after
FBI agents requested a second interview.
- One group of 5 Israelis was seen on the roof of Urban
Moving Systems videotaping and celebrating the destruction of the World
Trade Center. These Israeli agents were returned to Israel on visa violations.
- These Israeli suspects, and others, who had apparently
transported explosives in the New York area, were allowed to return to
Israel without being properly interrogated or their presence and activities
in the United States having been vigorously investigated." (1)
- What is publicly available about Chertoff's life and
his various careers is not comforting, if you care about either law or
justice-and it's especially troubling if you demand a depth of character
from those who occupy the highest offices in this land. Ah but then this
is the Cheney-Bush Era of Empire, so that 'quaint idea' is probably now
completely without merit.
- "Chertoff is credited with authoring the Patriot
Act, the 300-plus page blueprint for the modern National Security State;
patterned to great extent on the successes of the KGB in the Soviet system.
He's admired among his Bush cadres for making sure that government surveillance
operates at maximum efficiency. Under his stewardship at the Dept of Justice,
the 4th amendment has withered like summer grass. The long-held belief
that citizens, have a right to a "reasonable expectation of privacy"
has buckled under the demands of "Big Brother" and the new "intrusive"
- And: "Chertoff's record of failure at Justice is
second only to that of Ashcroft. His 4 year tenure hasn't produced even
one identifiable success. (Check out his "obstruction of justice"
in the John Walker Lindh case on Democracy Now) Instead, his personal ineptitude
and his palpable contempt for the law have only showered more disgrace
on the institution of American justice. That probably explains why he's
being moved up the bureaucratic dog-pile to the top rung of Homeland Security.
In Bush-world "failing upwards" is more commonplace than cowboy
boots at a Crawford tent-show." (2)
- As someone that controls the largest Federal Agency in
the US government; the life and accomplishments of Michael Chertoff ought
to be available and easy to locate: but that has not been the case. Instead
the important details concerning Michael Chertoff's past have been meticulously
scrubbed from the net. The basics are available from Wikipedia but the
facts surrounding the depth of his family's involvement in the actual creation
of the State of Israel, have disappeared.
- "Chertoff is the co-author, along with Viet Dinh,
of the USA PATRIOT Act , signed into law October 26, 2001. As head of the
Justice Department's criminal division, he advised the Central Intelligence
Agency on the outer limits of legality in coercive interrogation sessions."
- One of the little known aspects inside all the secrecy
surrounding The vile National ID Card, the HOMELAND Security Act, and the
shadowy FEMA camps that many believe are about to be used-concerns the
other master criminals that Cheney-Bush hired to ensure that Americans
will become as completely controlled a population, as were the people of
Communist East Germany or the old USSR.
- For Instance: "This "card" (the National
ID Card) was designed for Homeland Security by the former East German STAZI
chief, Marcus Wolfe, a master of manipulation and intimidation and Primakov
the former head of the KGB in the USSR. These two former spy chiefs are
who really run our SECRET National Interior Spy Service. Bush employed
them specifically for what they brought from their communist states - now
they decide who lives and who dies in America! These men have not changed,
they are who they are, and that's why Bush & the Bandits hired them
for HOMELAND Security. If these men appeared for work, in the uniforms
of their former States, the public would be outraged, and rightfully so!
How is it that the radical right continues to decry Communism, yet they
have allowed Bush to employ top communist counter-intelligence officers
to oversee every facet of our lives?" (4)
- Throughout this long international nightmare there remains
the still incomplete tragedy of the insertion of Israel, as a State, into
what was once Palestine. This conflicted and war-torn place has been the
international flashpoint of privilege over human rights and bondage over
freedom for over half a century. Flames and blood from this dispute were
ignited by greed and by those dark and destabilizing dreams of Empire that
were beginning even before the First World War. Here's something that one
woman adds to the on-going dialogue in Palestine-because what she's found
is pivotal to the veracity of claims made by the Zionist extremists that
control "Israel" today. This is why the dual citizenship of our
Homeland Security Czar is incompatible with his position in government
today. The USA is large enough to require that all our highest officials
be Americans without dual citizenships, or conflicts of national interest,
from any other nation. (5)
