HOUSTON, 12/08/2010 -- Five years ago Portland's Mayor Sam Adams supported his city's opting out of the Bush administration's Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), while City Commissioner Dan Saltzman stood alone in opposition. The two have since wrestled for control of the police department, and a fresh clash began last week after an alleged Black Friday bombing attempt by Mohamed Osman Mohamud -- about which the FBI and his own police department had kept the mayor in the dark.
On the Monday following the botched bombing, Saltzman issued a statement pushing for a quick return to the JTTF at today's city council meeting, while Adams made it clear that he wanted more study and deliberation. The mayor has since achieved some degree of control by gaining the commissioner's acquiescence to a meeting that will take up, but not resolve, the JTTF issue.
This means that everyone involved will have time to evaluate evidence from Theresa Mitchell, host of Presswatch on Portland's Pacifica station, KBOO-FM. It adds a new twist to the tale of the city that doesn't trust the feds, who in return label the city with the outlaw nickname of Little Beirut. The Iconoclast releases it now in belief that authorities will be more disposed to examine it than they were previously.

On Oct. 19, 2007, Mitchell forwarded me an email that extended a frightening series of events begun a day earlier, which she described in her morning broadcast, It pays to monitor terror exercises,

"The warning of a sudden terror exercise in the refinery 'national sacrifice area' in Texas came last night; the suspicious blast came early this morning. It would appear that monitoring exercises like Vigilant Shield and TOPOFF is essential to our survival."

Things continued that afternoon and evening, as the Oregonian detailed in Bomb scare disrupts terrorism drill, closes MAX line,

"The Topoff dirty-bomb drill turned into a real-life bomb scare this afternoon after a trio of bomb-sniffing dogs alerted authorities to possible explosives on the first floor of the parking garage of the Doubletree Hotel Portland at 1000 NE Multnomah Street. Michael Chertoff, secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was scheduled to be at the hotel for part of the Topoff counterterrorism exercise later in the day."

I present her forwarded email verbatim, and shall later offer my analysis of the Portland Plot as an amicus urbis report to mayor, council, police and media -- sometime after today's city council meeting. I encourage and await any official or media inquiry into this or my earlier articles, which anticipated both the recent and TOPOFF bomb plots.

Dirty Bomb on the Max?
12:46 pm (2 hours ago)


How are you? How are things at KBOO? Do you have big plans for Halloween? Besides reconnecting with you both again, I really wanted to share my experience this morning on the Max and see if you think I'm out of my tree.
This morning I experienced an uncomfortable ethical dilemma and thought of you two. Let me clarify, I consider both you to be well informed and intuitive of your surroundings.
This morning around 6:30am I boarded the Max as part of my commute to work and found a seat (2 seater) on left side of the train. I began my usual routine of reading my Utne magazine while settling into the rhythm of the ride to Beaverton. While I was reading my magazine and minding my own business, an outstretched hand placed on the seat rail in front of me (eye-level) caught my attention. The gentleman of Persian ethnicity rotated his hand in such way as to draw attention to a white medical bracelet, the kind a patient would receive in a hospital. A Persian name was typed on the bracelet along with some numbers. The gentleman was seated diagonally from me on the right side of the train. It was clear the gentleman had no affiliation with the person seated in front of why would he have reason to place his hand there? I realize other cultures define personal space differently and I do not feel this was the case.
As we progressed through downtown, the man got up, left his black "laptop" briefcase on the seat and walked away. He paused at the exit doors near a bike commuter. Why would someone get up and leave a laptop in plain sight? Later, he returned to his seat and sat with his laptop securely in his lap. By now my intuition is sounding all sorts of alarms and I was becoming a little nervous.
Some of the questions racing through my mind at the time were: These behaviors do not make any sense. What is this gentleman's agenda? Do I cave into the post 9/11 paranoia by alerting TriMet of suspicious activity and thereby ruin everyone's commute? Have I developed a bias towards Persians? Is this a real situation or is this part of the Dirty Bomb exercises in PDX this week?
Finally I decided to get off the train at PG&E park and wait for the next one. While waiting to disembark, the bike commuter asked me questions about my magazine. Why was the bike commuter interested in my magazine as I was waiting to exit the Max? Was it because of the cover read "The Ugly Americans" with pictures of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfield? Maybe I was signaled out because I was reading seditious material? Maybe next time I should bring a copy of anarchist's cookbook. Oops did I just say that? AT&T are you listening? These are burning questions without any answers or maybe I should just embrace an Existentialist point view, "a cigar is just a cigar" or something like that.

Until next time,





Editor's Note by Maj. William Fox, publisher, America First Books. Following initial publication of this article, there was confusion by certain readers about Capt. May's intent in reproducing the 19 Oct 2007 letter above. The following email exchange between Ghost Troop member "Percy" and Capt. May clarifies this issue:

I do not believe it. If anything it is probably a false flag by mossad to blame on Iran, even the military said that could happen with Israel. Never forget that Iran has never attacked another nation in over 360 years, but israel has. In fact, they have killed more Americans than ALL THE MUSLIM NATIONS PUT TOGETHER and yet we pay them to do it with billions in military aid, they have no ethics or morality toward their allies and that is what makes them dangerous. No way believe this story below [Editor's Note: actually regarding this web page, we should substitute "this story above" for "story below"].

Please, I must say that I agree with GT Percy about the article, which carries a headline that affirms the greatest hopes of the bomb-Iran crowd who never read my stuff. It's only when you read the article that you discover an article that provides evidence of a false flag attack. I figured that the irony would be misunderstood by some of my regular readers, but that this negative would be slight in comparison with the positive of many thousands would carry unanswered questions and nagging doubts -- which might transform the ignorant readers.

Best regards,

Additional Reading About Ghost Troop Cyber Militia

The online Mission of Conscience Trilogy by Maj. William B. Fox provides a historical overview and analysis of 9/11, the Madrid 3-11-2004 bombings, the London 7-7-2005 attacks, and other false flag events. It also explains the background and modus operandi of Capt. Eric May and his cyber militia called Ghost Troop that tries to anticipate and interdict repeat false flag attacks. Lastly, it diagnoses the deepest social and political dimensions of America's crises in order to recommend effective action. The summary table of contents, found here, outlines the chapters of each of the following three books:

Book I: Waking Up to the Ultimate Mission. Of particular note, Chapter 12 describes strong evidence that Osama Bin Laden has been dead since December 2001. Chapter 7 "How September 11th Became the False Flag Rosetta Stone" and Chapter 8" 9/11 Patterns As Future False Flag Indicators" explain why false flag attacks tend to coincide with major anti-terror exercises.

Book II: Defending Freedom, One False Flag Threat at a Time. This covers repeated threats against Portland, Oregon as well as Chicago, Texas City, Texas, and other cities. Chapter 14: Cindy Sheehan, Camp Casey, and Info War Martyrs provides some background on W. Leon Smith, Publisher of the Lone Star Iconoclast.

Book III: Changing the Mask, And the Continuing Cyber Battle Against False Flag "Predator" and "Alien" Larger than Books I and II combined, this takes intelligence analysis to the highest level by examining a wide range of social, political, and economic issues --with the gloves off.

The paleoconservative social and political views expressed by Major William B. Fox do not necessarily reflect those of other individuals affiliated with Ghost Troop.
