[casi] US killed own WMD planters by friendly fire

Pentagon Whistleblower Reveals CIA/ DoD Fiascos

In a world exclusive, Al Martin has published a news story about a
Department of Defense whistleblower who has revealed that a US covert
operations team had planted “Weapons of Mass Destruction” (WMDs) in Iraq –
then “lost” them when the team was killed by so-called “friendly fire.”

The Pentagon whistleblower, Nelda Rogers, is a 28-year veteran debriefer for
the Defense Department. She has become so concerned for her safety that she
decided to tell the story about this latest CIA-military fiasco in Iraq.

According to Al Martin, “Ms.Rogers is number two in the chain of
command within this DoD special intelligence office. This is a ten-person
debriefing unit within the central debriefing office for the Department of

The information that is being leaked out is information “obtained while she
was in Germany heading up the debriefing of returning service personnel,
involved in intelligence work in Iraq for the Department of Defense and/or
the Central Intelligence Agency.

“According to Ms. Rogers, there was a covert military operation that took
place both preceding and during the hostilities in Iraq,” reports Al Martin, an online subscriber-based news/analysis service which provides
“Political, Economic and Financial Intelligence.”

Al Martin is a retired Lt. Commander (US Navy), the author of a memoir
called “The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran Contra Insider, " and he is
considered one of America's foremost experts on corporate and government

Ms. Rogers reports that this particular covert operation team was manned by
ex-military personnel and that “the unit was paid through the Department of
Agriculture in order to hide it, which is also very commonplace.”

According to Al Martin, “the Ag Department has often been used as a
paymaster on behalf of the CIA, DIA, and NSA and others."

Accordng to the Al Martin story, another aspect of Ms. Rogers'
report concerns a covert operation which was to locate the assets of Saddam
Hussein and his family, including cash, gold bullion, jewelry and assorted
valuable antiquities.

The problem became evident when “the operation in Iraq involved 100 people,
all of whom apparently are now dead, having succumbed to so-called ‘friendly
fire.’ The scope of this operation included the penetration of the Central
Bank of Iraq, other large commercial banks in Baghdad, the Iraqi National
Museum and certain presidential palaces where monies and bullion were

“They identified about $2 billion of cash in US dollars, another $150
million in Euros, in physical banknotes, and about another $100 million in
sundry foreign currencies ranging from Yen to British Pounds,” reports Al

“These people died, mostly in the same place in Baghdad, supposedly from a
stray cruise missile or a combination of missiles and bombs that went
astray,” Martin continues. “There were supposedly 76 who died there and the
other 24 died through a variety of 'friendly fire,' 'mistaken identity,' and
some of them – their whereabouts are simply unknown.”

Ms. Rogers’ story sound like an updated 21st Century version of Treasure
Island meets Ali Baba and the Bush Cabal Thieves, writes Martin.

“This was a contingent of CIA/ DoD operatives, but it was really the CIA
that bungled it, Ms. Rogers said. They were relying on the CIA’s ability to
organize an effort to seize these assets and to be able to extract these
assets because the CIA claimed it had resources on the ground within the
Iraqi army and the Iraqi government who had been paid. That turned out to be
completely bogus. As usual.”

“CIA people were supposed to be handling it,” Martin continues. “They had a
special ‘black (unmarked) aircraft to fly it out. But none of that happened
because the regular US Army showed up, stumbled onto it and everyone
involved had to scramble.

These new Iraqi “Asset Seizures” go directly to the New US Ruling Junta. The
US Viceroy in Iraq Paul Bremer is reportedly drinking Saddam Hussein’s $2000
a bottle Napoleon era brandy, smoking his expensive Davidoff cigars and he
has even furnished his Baghdad office with Saddam’s Napolean era antique

The Iraq Debacle Du Jour has evidently been extensively documented by the
DIA debriefing teams with “extensive tape recordings of interviews with the
Iraqi returnees, the covert operatives (as well as their affidavits).”

Al Martin has dubbed this “Operation Skim Iraq.”
