Double Wedding

With Psychopaths Officiating


The Big Wedding

The code name for 9/11 was "The Big Wedding" as reported by the Christian Science Monitor on May 23, 2002:

"Sometime in the late summer of 2001, GID headquarters in Jordan intercepted a crucial Al Qaeda communication. This probably took place after the July 5 warning by a Phoenix, Ariz., FBI agent that Arab terrorists could be sending men to flight schools, and either before or shortly after Aug. 6, when President Bush received a CIA briefing about possible hijackings.

The intercept's content was deemed so important that Jordanian King Abdallah's men relayed it to Washington, probably through the CIA station at the US Embassy in Amman. To be sure that the message got through, it was also passed to a German intelligence agent who was visiting Amman at the time.

The message showed clearly that a major attack was planned inside the continental US. It said aircraft would be used. But neither hijacking nor, apparently, precise timing nor targets were named. The code name of the operation was mentioned: in Arabic, Al Ourush al-Kabir, "The Big Wedding."

"Catastrophic Terrorism: Elements of a National Policy"

Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, January 1993, "The Regional Defense Strategy"

The past four years have seen extraordinary changes abroad as the Cold War drew to a close. We have entered a new strategic era. The collapse of the Soviet Union -- the disintegration of the internal as well as the external empire, and the discrediting of Communism as an ideology with global pretensions and influence -- fundamentally altered, but did not eliminate, the challenges ahead. The integration of the leading democracies into a U.S.-led system of collective security, and the prospects of expanding that system, significantly enhance our international position and provide a crucial legacy for future peace. Our national strategy has shifted from a focus on a global threat to one on regional challenges and opportunities. We have moved from Containment to the new Regional Defense Strategy...

Simply put, it is the intent of the new Regional Defense Strategy to enable the U.S. to lead in shaping an uncertain future so as to preserve and enhance this strategic depth won at such great pains. This will require us to strengthen our alliances and to extend the zone of peace to include the newly independent nations of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, as these now-fragile states succeed in their struggle to build free societies and free markets out of the ruin of Communism. Together with our allies, we must preclude hostile nondemocratic powers from dominating regions critical to our interests and otherwise work to build an international environment conducive to our values. Yet, even as we hope to increasingly rely on collective approaches to solve international problems, we recognize that a collective effort will not always be timely and, in the absence of U.S. leadership, may not gel. Where the stakes so merit, we must have forces ready to protect our critical interests.


Quadrennial Defense Report (QDR) - September 30, 2001  (Note:  September 11 references throughout)

Foreword:  "The Quadrennial Defense Review and the accompanying report were largely completed before the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States. In important ways, these attacks confirm the strategic direction and planning principles that resulted from this review, particularly its emphasis on homeland defense, on surprise, on preparing for asymmetric threats, on the need to develop new concepts of deterrence, on the need for a capabilities-based strategy, and on the need to balance deliberately the different dimensions of risk. However, the attack on the United States on September 11, 2001 will require us to move forward more rapidly in these directions, even while we are engaged in the war against terrorism."

Diffusion of power and military capabilities to non-state actors. The attacks against the U.S. homeland in September 2001 demonstrate that terrorist groups possess both the motivations and capabilities to conduct devastating attacks on U.S. territory, citizens, and infrastructure. Adobe Pg. 13

Developing and sustaining regional security arrangements. U.S. alliances, as well as its wide range of bilateral security relationships, are a centerpiece of American security. The United States has enjoyed unparalleled success in building regional security arrangements. In addition, the United States has demonstrated an unmatched ability to develop coalitions of states to confront particular challenges, including Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. This ability will be critically important in responding to the events of September 11, 2001. These security arrangements and coalitions constitute a formidable combination of actual and potential power that enables the United States and its partners to make common cause to shape the strategic landscape, protect shared interests, and promote stability. Adobe Pg 14

It is clear that the roles, missions, and responsibilities of the many organizations and agencies involved in national preparedness must be clearly delineated through an integrated interagency process. The Office of Homeland Security, which is responsible for overseeing and coordinating a comprehensive national strategy to safeguard the United States against terrorism and respond to any attacks that may come, will lead this important process. Adobe Pg 27
Note:  President Establishes Office of Homeland Security - OCTOBER 8, 2001

DoD's new planning construct calls for maintaining regionally tailored forces forward stationed and deployed in Europe, Northeast Asia, the East Asian littoral, and the Middle East/Southwest Asia to assure allies and friends, counter coercion, and deter aggression against the United States, its forces, allies, and friends. Adobe Pg 28

Transforming the U.S. global military posture begins with the development of new ways to deter conflict. Deterrence in the future will continue to depend heavily upon the capability resident in forward stationed and forward deployed combat and expeditionary forces, including forcible entry forces, along with the rapidly employable capabilities that the U.S. military possess throughout the globe. Adobe Pg 33

Protecting the American homeland from attack is the foremost responsibility of the U.S. Armed Forces and a primary mission for the Reserve Components. [Comment:  WHERE ARE THE GOD DAMN NAVY AND AIR FORCE IN THIS?  Oh yeah... that's right, they are going global - no longer the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force ] Future adversaries will most certainly have a range of new means with which to threaten the United States. It is possible to identify confidently some of these means, including new techniques of terror; ballistic and cruise missiles; weapons of mass destruction, including advanced biological weapons; and weapons of mass disruption, such as information warfare attacks on critical information infrastructure. Others, like those used to attack the United States on September 11, 2001, may be a surprise. Defenses against known and emerging threats must be developed. New approaches to achieving early warning of new threats are a high priority. Adobe Pg 38.

To support joint and combined command and control and to enable a common relevant operational picture of the battlespace, the Department will enhance end-to-end interoperable communications for secure planning and operations. These communications will provide shared situational awareness and integration of joint fires, maneuver, and intelligence. Adobe Pg 42

Americas Forum Transition Report - 2001

The Americas Forum: This report was generated by the Americas Forum, a group of hemispheric policy professionals dedicated to a sustained engagement of U.S. interests in the Americas. The Americas Forum has been meeting monthly in Washington, D.C. since January 1993, and is co-chaired by Otto Reich, President, RMA International, and Georges Fauriol, Director, Americas Program, Center for Strategic & International Studies.

Georges Fauriol, Sr. Vice President of the International Republican Institute (IRI)   (funded by NED)

The Western Hemisphere:
An American Policy Priority

  • engage early to achieve a free trade area in the Americas, and prepare for the scheduled western hemispheric political summit in April in Quebec City;

  • request inter-agency assessment of regional defense and security policy, as well as the war on drugs;

  • request the Department of the Treasury to lead an inter-agency review of the status of and outlook for dollarization and its relationship to other U.S. strategic interests;  (Note: could it be that some of that $12 billion cash that was flown to Iraq - was actually moved to Latin America for "dollarization"?)

  • request the Department of Energy to refine the anchors of a Hemispheric Energy Policy, integrated into other regional priorities;

  •  formulate functional regional policy interests, especially technology, the environment, and education.

Energizing the Western Hemisphere to the front rank of this country’s foreign policy concerns will stand in stark contrast to the relative neglect there in recent years. This will provide a vivid example, perhaps the most personal one from President-elect George W. Bush, of the kind of sustained leadership required to carry our nation’s interests successfully into the new world of the
st Century—the “Century of the Americas”.  (note: Rockefeller's Council of the Americas)

TRADEProvide the President with the credibility necessary to make a comprehensive statement of his vision for the hemisphere at the Quebec City Summit of its chief executives scheduled for April 20-22 of 2001.

Promptly seek from Congress fast-track authority; deploy administration leadership for energetic, unceasing efforts toward consummation of an all embracing Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) by the agreed-upon date of 2005 (or possibly earlier).

Argentina: Representing a significant regional relationship, the U.S. backed an IMF $40 billion loan, in which U.S, European, and Argentine banks will participate. It will meet Argentina’s financing needs and further liberalize the economy, but failue could have implications for financial markets and political stability.

The link between a democratic community and regional security: The effectiveness of inter-American politico-security institutions to insure better multilateral cooperation has become an indispensable, long-term counterpart to the economic community now emerging in this Hemisphere through an FTAA.

  • Defend a democratic regional community,

  • Counteract anti-free market forces,

  • Promote a secure and prosperous Western Hemisphere as a unique strategic national advantage, that could become a serious liability if ignored.

HEMISPHERIC ENERGY POLICY and short-term winter U.S. shortfalls —

Encourage the President to capitalize on the Western Hemisphere’s relative energy self sufficiency, with Canada, Mexico, and Venezuela representing strategic partners.

Rand - A Bipartisan Report to the President Elect on Foreign Policy and National Security  Transition 2001

"On Iraq, we recommend that you be prepared to use the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and seek an understanding with Saudi Arabia and others to expand oil production; and, if provoked by Saddam Hussein, that the United States attack a wider range of strategic and military targets to demonstrate resolve and deter further challenges.

New Global Agenda. The end of the Cold War and recent changes in the global economy have expanded the international agenda. Globalization will have a growing impact on definition of U.S. "foreign policy", on the instruments available, the relative degree of control over events exercised by government as opposed to the private sector and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), and interconnections between events in different parts of the world.

Fosterning Global Economic Order. We recommend that early in your administration, you see "fast track" trade negotiating authority from Congress; secure support from key allies on management on multilateral negotiations; enagage U.S. groups with critical interests; and work to ensure that less influential countries and NGOs gain appropriate access to the negotiations.... we recommend that you take proactive measures to extend and deepen economic ties with Latin America, and especially with Mexido, for the purposes of fostering a stable, democratic, and free-market-oriented hemisphere. The key components of this policy would include efforts to promote balanced and sustainable economic development, to ensure monetary stability, and to extend and deepen free trade areas throughout Latin America, and to promote a hemispheric security community.

Asymmetric Warfare. During your administration, key challenges to the security of the United States, its allies, and its friends can come from so-called asymmetrical warfare, conducted by a variety of countries and non-state actors, in part as a response to U.S. military dominance. Three areas are most important: terrorism, cyber threats to critical infrastructure, and WMD...

... Governments are less in control of foreign policy than they were a few years ago; global politics is increasingly being shaped by nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and by private-sector and financial entities that transcend traditional state borders.... Resentment of globalization is on the rise and has produced increased anti-Americanism, since Washington is perceived as its architect.

We do recommend that you create a new body, within the NSC, charged with strategic analysis, long-range planning, and assessments of tradeoffs among the multiple issues that make up "national security"... This new body--Strategic Planning Office--can provide you and the members of the NSC with a broad, long-term perspective; it should also draw upon the work of the National Intelligence Council (NIC).

Finally, because of changes in global society and the nature of American involvement and presence, U.S. foreign policy will now be importantly affected by decisions made and carried out by non-governmental organizations (NGOs)."

The Corporate-U.S. Takeover of the Iraq Economy

"Bremer was in charge from May 6, 2003 to June 28, 2004. He had complete legislative, executive and judicial authority over Iraq. Bremer had four decades of corporate and government experience, working with Kissinger as managing director of Kissinger and Associates, as well as working in government with George Shultz and Donald Rumsfeld.

Prior to the invasion, Bearing Point received a $250 million contract from US AID to develop a blueprint for the remaking of Iraq's economy into a 'free-market' economy friendly to U.S. corporate interests. Bremer's job was to implement the Bearing Point plan. Juhasz points out that while there may have been an inadequate military plan, there was in fact a plan for the takeover and remaking of the economy of Iraq."

Bremer had the power to create laws by issuing "binding instructions or directives." Bremer issued 100 Orders, Juhasz in 2005 interview describes some of the key orders:

PBS Special Report - The Lost Year in Iraq

2002 - National Security Strategy of the United States


The great struggles of the twentieth century between liberty and totalitarianism ended with a decisive victory for the forces of freedom—and a single sustainable model for national success: freedom, democracy, and free enterprise. In the twenty-first century, only nations that share a commitment to protecting basic human rights and guaranteeing political and economic freedom will be able to unleash the potential of their people and assure their future prosperity.

People everywhere want to be able to speak freely; choose who will govern them; worship as they please; educate their children—male and female; own property; and enjoy the benefits of their labor. These values of freedom are right and true for every person, in every society—and the duty of protecting these values against their enemies is the common calling of freedom-loving people across the globe and across the ages.

We will defend the peace by fighting terrorists and tyrants. We will preserve the peace by building good relations among the great powers. We will extend the peace by encouraging free and open societies on every continent.

Terrorists are organized to penetrate open societies and to turn the power of modern technologies against us.


America will encourage the advancement of democracy and economic openness in both nations, because these are the best foundations for domestic stability and international order. We will strongly resist aggression from other great powers—even as we welcome their peaceful pursuit of prosperity, trade, and cultural advancement.

Finally, the United States will use this moment of opportunity to extend the benefits of freedom across the globe. We will actively work to bring the hope of democracy, development, free markets, and free trade to every corner of the world. The events of September 11, 2001, taught us that weak states, like Afghanistan, can pose as great a danger to our national interests as strong states. Poverty does not make poor people into terrorists and murderers. Yet poverty, weak institutions, and corruption can make weak states vulnerable to terrorist networks and drug cartels within their borders.

The United States will deliver greater development assistance through the New Millennium Challenge Account to nations that govern justly, invest in their people, and encourage economic freedom.

We are also guided by the conviction that no nation can build a safer, better world alone. Alliances and multilateral institutions can multiply the strength of freedom-loving nations. The United States is committed to lasting institutions like the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, the Organization of American States, and NATO as well as other long-standing alliances.

The U.S. national security strategy will be based on a distinctly American internationalism that reflects the union of our values and our national interests.

We will work with regional institutions, such as the Summit of the Americas process, the Organization of American States (OAS), and the Defense Ministerial of the Americas for the benefit of the entire hemisphere.

We will promote economic growth and economic freedom beyond America’s shores. All governments are responsible for creating their own economic policies and responding to their own economic challenges. We will use our economic engagement with other countries to underscore the benefits of policies that generate higher productivity and sustained economic growth, including:

• pro-growth legal and regulatory policies to encourage business investment, innovation, and entrepreneurial activity;

• tax policies—particularly lower marginal tax rates—that improve incentives for work and investment; rule of law and intolerance of corruption so that people are confident that they will be able to enjoy the fruits of their economic endeavors;

• strong financial systems that allow capital to be put to its most efficient use;

• sound fiscal policies to support business activity;

• investments in health and education that improve the well-being and skills of the labor force and population as a whole; and

• free trade that provides new avenues for growth and fosters the diffusion of technologies and ideas that increase productivity and opportunity.

The lessons of history are clear: market economies, not command-and-control economies with the heavy hand of government, are the best way to promote prosperity and reduce poverty. Policies that further strengthen market incentives and market institutions are relevant for all economies—industrialized countries, emerging markets, and the developing world.
