Torture report paves way for arrest of top Nazionists

The 500 page report of Bush era torture issued by the US Senate marks a major turning point in US power. While much of what is in the report is old news to most aware humans, the fact that it was issued by the US Senate Intelligence Committee and the fact that it was widely reported on in the corporate propaganda media is very important. For one thing it shows that Nazi faction of the cabal no longer controls the corporate media. It confirms information given to me earlier that the Cohen faction of the cabal had broken ranks with the Bush faction.

Even more important is that, according to establishment rules, once an incident is “in the news” then action must be taken. Since the United States is a signatory to the Geneva Conventions, it means their government is bound by law to prosecute war criminals. This means, just as we predicted last week, that George Bush Jr. and the entire Nazi (Neo-con) faction of the cabal, are headed for jail and possibly even the death penalty.

The release of this report comes as the British Crown Prince William was in Washington to “attend a World Bank conference.” Japanese government sources say that while in Washington, William signed treaties that confirmed a change of ownership of the corporate government of the United States. However, MI5 sources could only confirm that William did sign some documents. The timing of the release of the torture report may have been linked to that.

Also, remember how Bush Jr. and Tony Blair each went for private audiences with pope malevolent (Benedict XVI) after they left office? They were showing the world they had a powerful protector and were beyond prosecution. Well, the new Pope Francis and the P2 have taken away their immunity and that is why war crimes trials are now possible.

The UN, UK government officials, the Chinese and many others are clamoring for this right now.

Some of the top Bush clients around the world are now, understandably, running scared because their big patron is losing. One of these is the Dalai Lama, a hypocritical Nazi murderer who was refused an audience with the pope last week. This means he has no protection. Another one is the Sultan of Brunei who, according to CIA agents in South East Asia, has always been one of the key money launderers for the Bush world wide narcotics business. A third is the Agha Khan, a descendant of the Prophet Mohamed who runs a lot of the Al Qaeda type of stuff for the Bush faction, according to MI5 sources.

The Agha Khan, the Dalai Lama and the Sultan of Brunei were all members of a secretive committee that controlled global collateral account funds that were meant to be used for the benefit of the people of the planet but were instead mostly embezzled.

Meanwhile, the mysterious Philadelphia based source who predicted such things as the attack on Malaysian airlines, is now saying the Bushes and their cabalists have stolen US dollar funds belonging to the Russian and Venezuelan governments. This comes after their recent theft of the Japanese government pension fund.

For that reason, the people who run the UK pound and Euro systems have been by-passing the US controlled SWIFT system and are routing their transactions through Hong Kong, according to Chinese sources. In public this can be confirmed by a statement issued last week by IMF director Christine Lagarde:

German researchers discover a flaw that could let anyone listen to your cell calls.

German researchers discover a flaw that could let anyone listen to your cell calls.

German researchers have discovered security flaws that could let hackers, spies and criminals listen to private phone calls and intercept text messages on a potentially massive scale – even when cellular networks are using the most advanced encryption now available.

The flaws, to be reported at a hacker conference in Hamburg this month, are the latest evidence of widespread insecurity on SS7, the global network that allows the world’s cellular carriers to route calls, texts and other services to each other. Experts say it’s increasingly clear that SS7, first designed in the 1980s, is riddled with serious vulnerabilities that undermine the privacy of the world’s billions of cellular customers.

The flaws discovered by the German researchers are actually functions built into SS7 for other purposes – such as keeping calls connected as users speed down highways, switching from cell tower to cell tower – that hackers can repurpose for surveillance because of the lax security on the network.

Those skilled at the myriad functions built into SS7 can locate callers anywhere in the world, listen to calls as they happen or record hundreds of encrypted calls and texts at a time for later decryption. There also is potential to defraud users and cellular carriers by using SS7 functions, the researchers say.

These vulnerabilities continue to exist even as cellular carriers invest billions of dollars to upgrade to advanced 3G technology aimed, in part, at securing communications against unauthorized eavesdropping. But even as individual carriers harden their systems, they still must communicate with each other over SS7, leaving them open to any of thousands of companies worldwide with access to the network. That means that a single carrier in Congo or Kazakhstan, for example, could be used to hack into cellular networks in the United States, Europe or anywhere else.

“It’s like you secure the front door of the house, but the back door is wide open,” said Tobias Engel, one of the German researchers.

Engel, founder of Sternraute, and Karsten Nohl, chief scientist for Security Research Labs, separately discovered these security weaknesses as they studied SS7 networks in recent months, after The Washington Post reported the widespread marketing of surveillance systems that use SS7 networks to locate callers anywhere in the world. The Post reported that dozens of nations had bought such systems to track surveillance targets and that skilled hackers or criminals could do the same using functions built into SS7. (The term is short for Signaling System 7 and replaced previous networks called SS6, SS5, etc.)

The researchers did not find evidence that their latest discoveries, which allow for the interception of calls and texts, have been marketed to governments on a widespread basis. But vulnerabilities publicly reported by security researchers often turn out to be tools long used by secretive intelligence services, such as the National Security Agency or Britain’s GCHQ, but not revealed to the public.

“Many of the big intelligence agencies probably have teams that do nothing but SS7 research and exploitation,” said Christopher Soghoian, principal technologist for the ACLU and an expert on surveillance technology. “They’ve likely sat on these things and quietly exploited them.”

The GSMA, a global cellular industry group based in London, did not respond to queries seeking comment about the vulnerabilities that Nohl and Engel have found. For the Post’s article in August on location tracking systems that use SS7, GSMA officials acknowledged problems with the network and said it was due to be replaced over the next decade because of a growing list of security and technical issues.

Evolution World Tour: Foraminifera Sculpture Park, China Some of the world's oldest organisms left behind fossilized shells that, when translated to a large sculpture, bring an artistic edge to evolution

Bilal Haq, a marine geologist at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, Virginia, was visiting a lab in Qingdao, China, where fellow scientist Zheng Shouyi had completed a set of detailed, palm-size models of foraminifera—microscopic marine organisms with ornate shells. “When I saw those,” says Haq, “I said, ‘My God, those would make excellent sculptures.’”



Being a “woman of action,” as Haq describes her, Zheng persuaded the Institute of Oceanology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the city government of Zhongshan (Zheng’s ancestral home) to establish a sculpture park devoted to foraminifera, or forams. Local artisans and stoneworkers created the sculptures under Zheng’s supervision. The 2.5-acre park, featuring 114 granite, marble and sandstone sculptures of foraminifera, opened to the public in December 2009. Since then, nearly a million visitors have strolled the hillside grounds, across the bay from Hong Kong.

A tribute to foraminifera was long overdue. The tiny organisms have lived on the planet for 330 million years. Plus, they’re the artisans of the single-celled community—creating their own custom-made skeletons by extracting calcium carbonate from seawater and cementing the particles together with glue secreted by their bodies. Their shells vary from simple tubes and spheres to elaborate, multi-chambered spirals and long, striated pods. Forams “grow based on the same mathematics that the Greeks used in their sculpture and their vases and their architecture,” says Tony Arnold, a paleontologist at Florida State University, “and therefore are pleasing to the eye.”


Numbering more than 4,000 species (and over 40,000 in the fossil record), forams inhabit every ocean, subsisting on microscopic algae, bacteria and detritus, and providing food for snails, crustaceans and small fish. When they die, their shells form layers on the seafloor. Geologists use the deposits to measure the age of surrounding rock and sediment. Other scientists gather the tiny skeletons to study the history of earth’s climate. “They preserve the original carbon and oxygen isotopes of that time, which are a proxy for past temperature,” says Haq.

Moreover, paleontologists recognized these tiny skeletons could provide crucial evidence that had eluded Charles Darwin, who argued that organisms go through intermediate stages on their way to becoming a new species. But Darwin was frustrated that he couldn’t find any examples of these stages in the fossil record; he concluded that nature and time had obliterated them.

Curiosity samples methane surges in Martian atmosphere
Point to a dynamic and local process—possibly biological—that's releasing the gas.

On Earth, the majority of the methane that finds its way into the atmosphere is produced by microbes. Once in the atmosphere, the gas is broken down by a number of processes, so its continued presence there is a testimony to Earth's activity, both biological and geological.

Mars' atmosphere breaks down methane as well, but there are also low levels of methane in its atmosphere. Although this methane could come from sources that don't involve biological or geological activity, some Earth-based observations had suggested that Mars had localized sources that create plumes of methane in its atmosphere. Those are tougher to explain, but the observations have been difficult to replicate.

Now, the Curiosity rover has settled the issue, observing spikes in the atmosphere's methane concentration that seem to indicate a sporadic, local source.

Mars makes methane: sign of life or geology at work?

Today, NASA is announcing the results of a multi-year telescope survey of the …

Various measurements of Mars' atmosphere have placed methane concentrations at roughly between five and 15 parts per billion. There are a number of potentially mundane sources for this methane, from the breakdown of organic chemicals delivered by small comets and asteroids to the reaction between some minerals and water. But those processes don't really explain the apparent observations of plumes of more concentrated methane in the atmosphere, which reach levels over three times the normal background before mixing into the atmosphere.

The observations of these large-scale plumes, however, have been hard to replicate. That isn't entirely a surprise—as they're necessarily transient events—but it has left some questioning whether they actually existed.

Curiosity was equipped with hardware to sample the atmosphere and measure the amount of methane present. In its initial scans, however, methane levels were exceedingly low, at below five parts per billion. Now, with multiple measurements at different sites in the crater, the researchers running the sampling equipment have concluded that the local background levels are about 0.7 parts per billion—well below previous measurements. But they also found that the levels were not constant.

Somewhere around sol 306 (a sol is a day on Mars), levels shot up to about five parts per billion. A Martian week later, they had dropped down to about two parts per billion—much closer to background levels. The next times measurements were made, on sol 466, methane levels were over five parts per billion again, and they stayed there or higher through to sol 526. By sol 573, the levels had returned to background levels, and they've stayed there through to the last measurements included in the new paper, on sol 684.

Methane should mix rapidly with the rest of the Martian atmosphere, so the sudden surges suggest that the source of this methane is both local and focused. Based on the wind direction, the most likely site for the methane source is to the north of the rover's location. There are no correlations between the presence of high levels of methane and any of the following: relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, temperature, or radiation levels.

The low levels of background methane are roughly in line with predictions of the amount of the gas that should be generated by a UV-driven breakdown of organic material delivered by impacts. Mars is expected to get enough material through this route to fuel a constant concentration of 2.2 parts per billion, although that's likely to be an upper limit. But impacts are unlikely to produce the sort of localized surges in concentration seen by Curiosity; the breakdown is too slow, and the amount of material required should have produced an obvious impact crater near the rover. (The authors estimate that the crater would be tens of meters wide.)
