Dutch security is now denying Haskell's eyewitness report, on the basis of having reviewed 200 hours of surveillance video. Haskell, however, is sticking with his story, and has located another passenger who (he says) corroborates his account, but this witness is afraid to step forward out of fear of being in the spotlight. Haskell also asks a reasonable question: why don't they release the surveillance video, just like the US authorities released video of that idiot in New Jersey who snuck through security? Additionally, there are all sorts of other questions that arise when we consider how the Dutch handled security at Schiphol in this instance: for example, all passengers at Schnipol are interviewed, an innovation introduced by the Israeli companies that provide security services there. No doubt these interviews are videotaped, or at least there must be some account of the interview, either from interviewer or his notes: let's see them. I refuse to believe that Mutallab, being interviewed and sitting there with a bomb in his underpants, wasn't sweating bullets at the very least. How did he explain himself? What did the interviewer ask? These are questions that won't be answered until and unless the Dutch are more forthcoming -- and the media start getting more aggressive when it comes to uncovering questions of simple fact. 2) The "man in orange" arrested at the Detroit airport, who was on the same flight. As Haskell tells it: "Ever since I got off of Flight 253 I have ...
On Sunday afternoon, armed officers rushed aboard the same Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight that was attacked on Christmas Day, but the perceived threat wasn't much of a danger -- just an ill traveler who spent too much time in the bathroom. Coming so soon after a Nigerian was accused of trying to blow up a plane, authorities quickly responded to an emergency call from the crew on Flight 253 from Amsterdam. Some of the 256 passengers were rattled while others apparently weren't aware of the incident. Passengers were safely evacuated, and luggage was lined up on the ground for inspection by bomb-sniffing dogs. The passenger, involved also Nigerian, was a businessman who was sick and posed no security threat, said two law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the incident. The traveler in question had "spent a lengthy time in the restroom," FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said. "This raised concerns so an alert was raised."
airboyd.tv Boeing C-97 Page http How To Fly The C-97 www.ovi.ch From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org The Boeing C-97 Stratofreighter was a long range heavy military cargo aircraft based on the B-29 bomber. Design work began in 1942, with the prototype's first flight in 1944, and the production aircraft entering service in 1947. Between 1947 and 1958, 888 C-97s in several variants were built - 816 of them KC-97 tankers. C-97s served in the Berlin Airlift, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. Some aircraft served as flying command posts for the Strategic Air Command, while others were modified for use in Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Squadrons (ARRS). The Boeing C-97 Stratofreighter was developed towards the end of World War II by fitting an enlarged upper fuselage onto a lower fuselage and wings which were essentially the same as the B-50 Superfortress with the tail, wing, and engine layout being nearly identical. It was built before the death of Boeing president, Philip G. Johnson. The prototype XC-97 was powered by the 2200 hp (1640 kW) Wright R-3350 engine, and was fitted with a built-in ramp and a hoist to help in the loading and unloading of supplies and personnel through the large clamshell-type doors in the belly. On January 9, 1945 the first prototype, piloted by Major Curtin L. Reinhardt, flew from Seattle to Washington, DC in 6 hours 4 minutes, an average speed of 383 mph (616 km/h) with 20000 pounds (lb) of cargo, which was for its time rather ...
Police search for Detroit bomb accomplice Dec 29 2009 BBC Reuters Dutch police say they are investigating the possibility an accomplice may have helped the Nigerian man accused of trying to blow up a plane over Detroit on Christmas Day. Two witnesses say they saw a tall, middle-aged man with Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab at Amsterdam's international airport before he boarded the plane. Abdulmutallab is in a Detroit jail after he attempted to detonate an explosive during the flight. The 23-year-old, who was on a US intelligence watchlist, allegedly tried to set off an explosive device sewn to his underwear as the airliner came in to land but was stopped by passengers and crew. He was treated in hospital for burns he received while trying to detonate the explosive and has since been moved to prison. The US President Barack Obama has ordered full reviews of America's airport security and the country's terrorism watch lists. Abdulmutallab's family say they lost contact with him months ago, and reported his disappearance to the authorities. The son of a respected former banker, Abdulmutallab is from a privileged background in Africa's most populous country, most of whose estimated 140 million people live on less than $3 a day. A member of the family read a statement over the phone to the BBC. It describes how the family was woken in the early hours of Boxing Day to hear that their son had been involved in an attempt to blow up an airliner. Out of character They tell how the father ...

Tunde Nightingale & His Highlife Boys Melodisc Records Year (?) Source: www.bogusme.com Tunde Nightingale, aka, "Western" was a native of Ibadan, the largest city in both Nigeria and Africa. An incredible guitarist with a sonorous voice to boot, he was best known for his unique Jùjú music style, following in the tradition of Tunde King. Born in Ibadan in the late-1940s, his contemporaries included Ayinde Bakare, IK Dairo and Dele Ojo. Nightingale was credited with the Owambe system, which was popular among Lagos socialites, who eagerly sponsored him on a tour abroad. When he returned, he signed with the TYC label and recorded over 40 albums in his career. Modern stars like King Sunny Ade and Queen Ayo Balogun continue to be influenced by his style. Apart from the fact that he "sounded," literally, like the proverbial singing bird, "Nightingale," he also kept a live Nightingale bird in his home. _____________________________________________ "Tunde Nightingale, the famous Nigerian musician well known for his unique singing voice. A Nightingale is a bird celebrated for its singing at night, and when you hear Tunde sing his songs to you, you will agree that he does sound like a Nightingale. He is a man of great talent who has had considerable influence in the shaping of Highlife music. An extraordinary musician who combines an indefatigable striving for perfection with his inborn gift of exquisite taste and sensitive artistic judgment. He composes his own tunes and lyrics and ...

Production models featured the 3500 hp (2610 kW) Pratt & Whitney Wasp Major engine, the same engine as the B-50. The C-97 had a useful payload of 35000 lb (16 t) and could carry two normal trucks or light tanks. The C-97 was also the first mass produced air transport to feature cabin pressurization, which made long range missions somewhat more comfortable for the crew and passengers. C-97s evacuated casualties during the Korean War. C-97s also participated in the airlift of relief materials to Uli airstrip (Biafra) during the Nigerian Civil War. Flying under the cover of darkness and at tree-level to evade radar, at least two C ...

Anti-Semitism After World War II Outbreaks of acts of vandalism such as defacing or setting fire to synagogues occur frequently. Beginning in the late 1950's and continuing today, a new phase of anti-Semitism, involving the antagonism of African Americans toward Jews, emerged in a series of urban encounters. Large groups of neo-Nazis and white supremacists have also been responsible for anti-Semitic propaganda and violence against individual Jews.

In 1997 representatives of the Society for the Conservation of Nature of Liberia and the Forestry Development Authority visited villages in the vicinity of Sapo National Park (Liberia, West Africa) shortly after the disarmament of combatants following a 7-year civil war. They were accompanied by Nigerian peacekeeping forces. This video captures the spontaneous reunion of conservation workers and friends and inhabitants of Jalay's Town-- a small village which borders on the west side of Sapo National Park. These people had been in hiding and fearful of their safety for years and had left the road to their village partly uncleared to prevent the rapid entry of unfriendly forces. Villagers accompanied the group to the nearby Sinoe River which is the western border of the park. This was the first post war effort to reestablish Liberia's only national park following a tragic civil conflict.
www.infowars.com Congressman Ron Paul fears that the agenda behind the Flight 253 bombing incident is to expand the war on terror into Yemen while stripping Americans of more liberties, warning that its time people woke up and realized that the government cannot guarantee their safety. The Congressman highlighted how the bombing attempt followed geopolitical turmoil in Yemen in the form of attacks in the country launched by the Saudis with the endorsement of the US and how sectors of the media and politicians were now calling for Yemen to be a new front in the war on terror as a consequence of the Christmas Day incident. It seems ironic that there is so much excitement about this and now talk about attacking Yemen, said Paul, adding that it was the United States presence in Yemen that represented a threat to America, not the purported presence of Al-Qaeda members in Yemen. Two days after the incident, influential neo-lib Joe Lieberman cited the attempted plane bombing in calling for Yemen to be the next target of the military-industrial complex after Afghanistan, claiming the plot had links back to the Middle Eastern nation. Paul raised the question of how a $75 billion dollar a year intelligence gathering structure failed to stop a dangerous man who had no passport and was on a terror watch list from boarding a plane. A dvertisement It really scares me because we do so much already we spend $75 billion dollars on intelligence gathering in this country in order to protect ...
Phoenix and federal authorities detained two Middle Eastern men accused by a passenger of acting suspiciously aboard a Phoenix-bound plane Saturday evening. An investigation by the FBI found no evidence of a terroristic threat and the men were later released without charges. While en route from Orlando, Fla. to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, a passenger aboard US Airways Flight 192 reported that two men were acting strangely, said Suzanne Trevino, a Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman. "The passengers alerted the flight crew and they called for law enforcement and TSA officers to meet them when the plane arrived," Trevino said. Once the plane arrived at Sky Harbor for its scheduled stop about 8 pm, the two men were met by Phoenix police, TSA and FBI officials, said Special Agent Manuel Johnson, a FBI spokesman. The passenger told authorities the two men, described as being Middle Eastern, were speaking "loudly" in their native language. The passenger then saw a suicide bomber on the DVD version of the movie "The Kingdom," and one of the men reportedly got up to use the lavatory when the fasten-seatbelt sign was lit. "The totality of those three occurrences led this passenger to believe this was suspicious," Johnson said. The men were cooperative with the FBI when questioned, then were later released to catch another flight to their final destination in California. Neither was charged. The incident delayed the inbound flight from Orlando for about ...

this video shows heavy Aircraft spraying on 15.11.2009 over Lower Austria which could be a terrorist act in order to trigger a flu pandemic here in Austria like in Ukraine. So far the virus has stayed mild and not turned as violent as it is in the Ukraine where 1,45 million people are infected and the infection took place overnight. There is hard evidence that the reason for this overnight outbreak in Ukraine of the much more lethal type of pneumonia-related swine flu broke out after heavy overnight aircraft spraying activity. Having followed normal Chemtrail activity over our ground for almost 6 months I recognized this attack as different as usual from several perspectives. 1) unlike past Chemtrail experience the aircraft trails lingered quite fast and produced huge fields of white haze. 2) there were all sorts of different planes and trails involved which made the whole attack look like a war invasion of all available enemy forces. 3) I catched a pilot to turn the Chem-button ON/OFF 2 times after signs of emptiness of his tank appeared in the sky. (it could be done without pilot intervention with the last "drops" of the tank showing up in the air). I also recognized trails to be initiated right before haze (indicating that they spray something into an already intoxified area). www.theflucase.com Are Poland and Austria at the forefront of an undeclared biological war? www.theflucase.com Unusual spraying activity sightings in Poland and UK www.theflucase.com More unusual ...

Three people have been reportedly killed and several others wounded after police opened fire on demonstrations held in support of Palestinians on the annual Qods Day. The attack happened as hundreds of people came to the streets of Zaria in Kaduna state in northern Nigeria on Friday. It was not clear what provoked the fighting. Sheik el-Zazky, a Muslim leader, said his followers reported three people were killed and 12 wounded. Several demonstrators have also been arrested. "They began stoning the police and then the trouble erupted. The police used firearms in self-defense," Assistant Police Commissioner Abubakar Danmalam said. More than 200 ethnic groups generally live peacefully side by side, although civil war left one million dead between 1967 and 1970. This comes after a leaked intelligence report detailed possible government plans to attack Members of an Islamic Movement in Nigeria called Boko Haram. The group had organized the rallies. Security forces had been stationed in and around Zaria since last week. The group alleges the Nigerian government had decided in a high level security meeting to "phase out" its top members.
A day after the Nigerian president said calm was restored to the north, gun battles broke out again between government forces and Boko Haram fighters seeking sharia across the country. Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege reports from the Nigerian capital, Abuja. Viewers may find some of the images in the report disturbing.
UGO Official Biography : « A change is gonna come ». This famous Sam Cookes song became an anthem for the American Civil Rights Movement. A few decades later, the first black president was elected at the White House. Perfect time for UGO to share this audacity of hope with his new hit single « Change » featuring Sean Kingston. And it all makes sense when you know that UGOs father was threatened with death after a political push and forced to leave his country, Nigeria, to find a new home in Washington DC Thats how the majestic Stevano « UGO » (meaning « eagle » in his mother tongue) was able to spread his wings in the US and catch hip hop culture as it flies past. First with break dancing that he has been practicing regularly. Then as a MC, wich allowed him to express his talent. But the young rapper was influenced by KRS-1, a famous New York MC known for his conscious lyrics, as much as Fela Kuti, the Afro Beats pope, also a Nigerian native : « I grew up listening to both American and African music and wanted to create songs that would be appreciated by all. The most important thing is not where you come from, its to believe in yourself Music is universal » says UGO who also has italian blood running through his veins. If he already realeased two songs, « Earthquakin Afrikan MC » in 2002 and « Bran-Nu-Flo » in 2003, with a huge popular success in Nigeria, UGO had the chance to tour with reknown artists such as The Fugees, Digable Planets, EVE, Wu-Tang Clan, The Pharcyde ...
The Night of the Hunter is a 1953 novel by American author Davis Grubb. The book was a national bestseller and was voted a finalist for the 1955 National Book Award. In 1955 the book was adapted by Charles Laughton and James Agee as the film The Night of the Hunter. (film noir) . The story concerns an ex-convict Harry Powell who, acting on a story told to him by his now-dead cellmate, cons the cellmate's widow into marrying him in hopes that her children will tell him where their father hid the money from his last robbery. After killing their mother, he embarks on a hunt for the children, who have sensed his evil and are running from him.. The plot was based on the true story of Harry Powers, who was hanged in 1932 for the murders of two widows and three children in Moundsville, West Virginia. Grubb explores the presentation of the American South in the aftermath of the American Civil War. He uses tropes of the Southern Gothic genre to explore issues such as social corruption and instability. The figure of the Preacher is a symbol of the corruptive social force of religion in the American South. While the disruption of the family unit emphasises the broken sense of Southern identity after the War.
Biafra Anyone? Cardinal Rex Lawson by John Beadle Until his untimely death in the 1970s, Erekosima (Rex Jim) Lawson was a standard-bearer of the Nigerian highlife scene whose tunes achieved popularity across Africa. Of mixed Kalabari and Igbo parentage, he was born in the town of New Kalabar in present-day Rivers State, and got his start in Port Harcourt's Starlite Melody Orchestra, led by "Lord" Eddyson. By 1960 he was leading his own group, the Nigeraphone Studio Orchestra of Onitsha and had played with the "big names" of Nigerian highlife - Bobby Benson, Roy Chicago, Victor Olaiya and others. With his second group, the Majors Band of Nigeria (variously called the "Mayors Band," and in later years the Rivers Men), he scored innumerable hits over the sixties and early seventies, notably "Jolly Papa," "Adure," "Ibi na Bo," and many others. Of these, the biggest was "Sawale," in pidgen English, which has become an African music standard and been remade numerous times by various artists. Lawson's fluency in various languages and dialects has only enhanced his appeal across class and ethnic lines in West Africa. In the 60s during the thick of the Biafran war and to boost morale of the Biafran people, Cardinal Rex Lawson released an album titled Hail Biafra . Lawson was latter detained by Nigerian Federal Government troops and questioned about this pro-Biafran record: "...He proudly and courageously responded: 'I did the song to uplift the rebels.' Lawson died tragically in ...
