Cheney authorised the torture of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

The confession by Cheney that the criminal case against KSM is built on evidence acquired through torture gives us some of the best evidence so far in support of the 9/11 Truth Movement's claim that a new investigation of 9/11 is urgently needed.

Dick Cheney has admitted in an ABC television interview that he personally authorised the water-boarding of the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM).

This is surely prima facie evidence for criminal charges. As noted in a recent Raw Story piece, after World War II Japanese soldiers were tried and convicted of war crimes in US courts for water-boarding.

Wikipedia defines water-boarding as:

a form of torture that consists of immobilizing a person on their back with the head inclined downward and pouring water over the face and into the breathing passages. Through forced suffocation and inhalation of water, the subject experiences the process of drowning and is made to believe that death is imminent.

In 1968, a U.S. soldier was court-martialed for water boarding a Vietnamese prisoner.

The efficacy of torture methods for extracting useful information from prisoners has been thoroughly debunked by experienced interrogators and Cheney's claim that the program has been "very effective" is ridiculous in the light of the multitude of implausible confessions made by KSM, including plots to assasinate Jimmy Carter, Bll Clinton and Pope John Paul II. He claimed to have personally beheaded Daniel Pearl, as well as overseeing the Bali Sari Club bombing in 2002. He most astounding confession was a plan to bomb the Plaza Bank in Washington State, which was founded three years after his arrest.

More recently the withdrawal of confessions by KSM and four others has made a complete mockery of the Guantanamo Bay trial.

The very notion that the primary purpose of torture is to extract information is false. Torture is a tool of intimidation and totalitarian control, nothing more, As the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services director told Congress:

"... torture is the deliberate mental and physical damage caused by governments to individuals to ... terrorize society."

From the entry 'A heart to heart talk with Fair Dinkum Leon'.

Almost two months since the last broadcast! How the hell can you expect people to donate when you don’t broadcast? Looks like the ship of truth has sprung a leak. This broadcast has been part of my life almost since its inception…it is one of the few alternative news sources that hasn’t gone off the deep end, by dilution credible information with crap e.g. Fairdinkum Radio and Info Wars…Pittard started FR with some incredibly interesting material, but then he flipped…Today he sounds like a fundamentalist preacher, the Christian equivalent to a Fanatical Islamist. As an atheist, I think he’s really ###### up a potentially good show. As for Info Wars, all they would have to do to improve is dump Alex Jones, what a shit-for-brains. I reckon Jones and Pittard are allowed to proliferate, because they’re so stupid and harmless. I suppose they have some entertainment value, and along with David Icke are living examples of how low the alternative media has sunk. Truth News Radio is, or should I say was, way ahead of them all ahead of them all in terms of credibility How sad that its come to this.

Not quite right - it’s interconnected. The temperature required depends on altitude and relative humidity . See the table on this page.

The altitude is given in pressure levels, for a conversion use annother table like this one. The relative humidity is given with respect to water here.

Now do the math: At 12000 ft (around 650 hPa) you can easily get ice supersaturation and ergo persistent trails at -40° C if the RH is 60%.

At 37000 ft (lower than 250 hPa), you actually need -50° C at the same RH - but only -45° C if the RH is close to 100%.

In a nutshell: persistent trails need certain combinations of altitude, temperature and humidity. That’s what you want to consult the Appleman Chart for.

From the entry 'Contrails dissipate quickly whereas chemtrails linger?'.

Persistent spreading contrails require -50 c and 150% Relative humidity with regards to ice. It’s quite easy to make a list of regular “sprayers” that create this type of contrail in altitudes of 12,000 to 37,000 feet, in conditions extremely far outside that of which is needed for this type of contrail to exist in the first place.

SEO

webdesign
I thought SEO was obsolete until I met websem. They gave me a detailed web
design concept and an extensive digital marketing plan, yet I still
couldn’t believe the results when I saw them. It was like planting a tree
and watching it grow right before your eyes! Now I look and feel like I
deserve that 73% increase in sales!
