MYSTERY SURROUNDS DEATH (murder) OF STATE DEPT. OFFICIAL in Washington, D.C.  

by Wayne Madsen-(special to From The Wilderness)
An official of the State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research Near East and South Asian division (INR/NESA), John J. Kokal, 58, was found dead in the late afternoon of November 7. Police indicated he may have jumped from the roof of the State Department. Kokal's body was found at the bottom of a 20 foot window well, 8 floors below the roof of the State Department headquarters near the 23rd and D Street location. Kokal's INR bureau was at the forefront of confronting claims that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. Washington police have not ruled out homicide as the cause of his death.

30 prominent Microbiologist Dead since 9/11 

This is "the greatest murder mystery in history," said author and terrorism expert Steve Quayle, Thursday's guest for the full 4-hour broadcast. He was discussing the mysterious series of deaths of around 30 prominent microbiologists which began in 2001. He delineated the causes of their deaths, which included planes being shot down or crashing, a "Satanic" murder, and improbable suicides. This shadowy group intends to release a "super plague" that will eliminate 90% of the world's population, and "they wanted to take out people that could come up with a cure" for this illness said Quayle. http://www.coasttocoastam.com/shows/2003/11/27.html

Dollar Falls to Record Versus Euro 

The dollar is falling even as economic reports showed U.S. jobless claims declining and durable goods orders rising. Europe's current account surplus -- the broadest measure of trade and investment -- is increasing while France and Germany this week won approval for wider budget deficits, enabling them to spur economic growth through government spending.

The U.S. economy needs to attract about $1.5 billion a day in foreign investment to plug its current-account deficit, which held at a record $138.7 billion in the second quarter.

    U.S. Military Overseas Large-Scale Redeployment Around World 

    By Bryan Bender, Globe Correspondent

    WASHINGTON - The Bush administration yesterday signaled the official start to the most sweeping shift in the American military presence abroad since World War II, telling allies that it would immediately seek to redeploy troops, ships, and aircraft stationed around the world.

    "Beginning today, the United States will intensify our consultations with the Congress and our friends, allies, and partners overseas on our ongoing review of our overseas force posture," President Bush said in a statement from Crawford, Texas. "We will ensure that we place the right capabilities in the most appropriate locations to best address the new security environment. High-level US teams will begin consultations in foreign capitals in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere."

    The U.S. Military and domestic policing/surveillance roles 

    By William M. Arkin-Los Angeles Times

    "We must start thinking differently," says Air Force Gen. Ralph E. "Ed" Eberhart, the newly installed commander of Northern Command, the military's homeland security arm. Before 9/11, he says, the military and intelligence systems were focused on "the away game" and not properly focused on "the home game." "Home," of course, is the United States.

As has been reported, Bush admitted to having sex with several women in Hong Kong and Thailand during an earlier business trip. In the deposition, he said a woman would knock on the door of his hotel room.

    Unprecedented Levels of Police Violence Malign Protesters' Rights - Miami, FL 

    "Police are supposed to point their rubber bullet guns at the ground in order to avoid directly striking someone," said Liz Highleyman, a medic. "This was definitely not the practice used on the streets as case after case indicated intentional direct hits."

    The indiscriminate and widespread use of weapons by police in Miami was a significant departure from those used at mass protests in the U.S. in the recent past. A panoply of batons, tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets, concussion grenades, tasers and electric shields, represented an extreme overreaction and unwarranted attack on people's first amendment rights.

    The Strange Death of the Woman Who Filed a Rape Lawsuit Against Bush 

    To be sure, Schoedinger's accusations - which include being drugged and SEXUALLY ASSUALTED numerous times by BUSH and other men purporting to be FBI agents - are bizarre and hard for most people to believe.

    Schoedinger's lawsuit can still be viewed on the Fort Bend County site at http://ccweb.co.fort-bend.tx.us/localization/menu.asp - then go down to the bottom and click on civil court. Then type "schoedinger" in the plaintiff box and click search. You should find another lawsuit she filed against Sugar Land police, as well.
