Just a heads up for what is coming up this week. A considerable amount of tweeps have started to follow me over the past week so this is for you guys.
1) Part 2 of Barret Brown Living in Denial, More details of my Conversation with him and the hack of his personal phone calls. You can find the back story here, and part 2 will be addressing his hacked phone calls-available here. Contributor Ben Grier posted the link to the post and Brown had mistaken him for me. That coudlve been resolved with Google. But fuck it, Brown doesnt do research unless he is targeting someone or creating the bibliography for his book.
2) [nano] Diamonds are Forever. I called up my good friend Pat Dollard. He was busy doing his regular daily activities; tossing dwarves into a pond, wrestling hyenas, etc. And said, “Hey, remember how much of a flop the new START treaty was? Well I got an internal document. The Russians lied to the IAEA. They slid the head of underground nuclear explosions into the pact and said he was an expert in nano diamonds.” Hmmm. Iran is their ally; they are testing underground. But I’m sure there is nothing to see here. Dollard boxed up a dwarf and Fed Ex’ed it to me. Back story on IAEA and START available here
3) Mystery Project. But I’ll give you a hint. “Ivan Petrov”, Guraba, Anwar al-Awlaki, Farrakhan, and Malcolm X. What does this have to do with the US? Stay tuned. I might have to bring John Brooks in on this. No back story available, so this should be a ton of fun.
4) Crying Wolfe. The deranged and terrible tale of a private individual targeted for total destruction. New developments required the party van to be fueled up…Don’t know the back story? I’ll give you the tl;dr version. Mike Stack retweets Anthony Weiner pic and his life has been hell ever since; including a SWAT’ting. This from the tolerant left
Matt Dawson has joined the team at PatDollard.Com. While patdollard.com is one of the most active and up to date breaking news sites on the web, we did need to add some comedy relief. That came in the form of Matt Awesome. (his real birth name). Here are some things you may not know about Matt Dawson.
Dawson lead the #occupycouch movement; the only rational response for patriots across the nation to get involved with. The response from the protesters of #occupywallstreet was instantaneous. Most observers and participants didn’t believe that the Wall Street Occupiers could become any less rational. But Dawson’s counter-movement short circuited the protesters last few brain cells and caused at least one protester to defecate on a police car. See below for early days of #occupycouch in action as started by Dawson.
As I stated earlier Matt’s birth name was “Matt Awesome”. It was later changed to “Dawson” per a court order. In the early 90’s Matt had sneaked onto the set of the hit tv series “Dawson’s Creek” and was caught red-handed trying on a cast member’s under-garments. Needless to say James Van Der Beek was not laughing when he walked in on Matt Awesome in his trailer (#occupythetrailer). However, Van Der Beek requested and eventually petitioned the Judge to lighten any sentence imposed on Awesome. Van Der Beek had every incentive to do so because Awesome had also found a deranged shrine. The subject? Mario Van Peebles. And the picture spread, dolls, and candles were the most tame objects involved. The Judge agreed it would be suitable punishment to harness Awesome with something that would follow him for the rest of his life. That sentence, with light probation (2 years), made Matt Awesome legally change his name to “Matt Dawson”.
Hope, Rage, and Chupacabras
So Dawson has now joined the team of the exhausted and overworked at patdollard.com. Aside from witty and much needed comic relief Dawson has a history of providing wildly entertaining material via The Morlock Revolt. I will not attempt to accurately describe the site here; I can not do it justice. DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for your elation and/or pissing your pants
Right out of the box Dawson releases his first commentary Hope, Rage, and Chupacabras. Countless pundits and bloggers (people in Starbucks who say they are “freelance writers”) have regurgitated every talking point while missing the mark completely. The contributors at Pat Dollard’s site take comedy relief seriously; as we do with current events. We believe if you can not handle a topic responsibly then you probably won the ’08 election.
What we get to see with Dawson’s commentary is the raw pyrotechnics; the wiring, the blasting caps, and the control box behind The Morlock Revolt. If this continues then in good faith I must request a meeting with the Judge that originally sentenced Matt Awesome. A reversal of the decision might now be necessary. In other words…Matt Awesome is already here, actually he never left. But Van Der Beek is gone and the Mario Van Peebles shrine is right where it belongs…In Dick Durbin’s basement.

You know the deal. I’ve been tracking stolen SAM’s (Surface to Air Missiles) from Libya by Al Qaeda Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) for 5 months. Strictly Right Radio was the only one to cover this topic as it happened. Now, for the first time, hear Ben Swenson and I talk about it on Strictly Right Radio. Clicking Image will open in new tab to Take That Media
The segment on Al Qaeda’s Libyan missiles starts around 18:00. But its Strictly Right, you should be listening to the whole show! And that’s exactly why I didnt edit it and cut it down :)
Behind the Scenes
Originally, a 90 minute podcast on this was supposed to be done on Pat Dollard’s Night Watch. Guess what? An hour before the show we got new intel. We then felt that we should push the show back so we could cover all of the new info we received. But once again we are scooping the mainstream media; months in advance. Stay tuned!!
PS: To Wikileaks-You suck. I’m one guy with a phone and a computer. You are a worldwide organization with hundreds of thousands of (stolen) intelligence docs in your possession. I can do more to make the world a more open and safer place by noon than you have done in your entire history. Your implosion is a shining example of why we don’t let asshats like you obtain intel.
On March 26 of this year we reported on Al Qaeda stealing surface to air missiles (SAM’s) from munitions depots in Libya. Moammar Gaddafi in an act of desperation opened up munitions depots. His intention was to let his supporters arm themselves. Instead Al-Qaeda Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) ended up acquiring everything from shoulder-fire man portable units to old Soviet SCUDS. From our March 26th report (“When did Officials know? Al Qaeda Steals Libyan Missiles”):
“Someone is not being totally honest. On March 25, 2011 AFP (via Breitbart.com) reported a story of Justice Secretary Ken Clarke warning of another Lockerbie style attack. This was a very specific warning considering the broad scope of possible threats to civilians. Thats because Clarke and other officials had already received the report of Al-Qaeda stealing nearly 100 Surface to Air Missiles from Libyan munition dumps.”
The day after we began to investigate the claims leaders in Niger and Chad had tried to alert the press of the theft; also included in our report in the above links. They were ignored. For the past 5 months the media largely ignored all claims of SAM thefts. But now that the turmoil has settled down the confirmation of the missing missiles is now coming to light.
Also in our March report the main concern was the current No-Fly zone imposed by NATO. This tactic would push commercial airliners away from central north Africa. In doing so the north shores would have a much more crowded airspace with more planes. All of which would become easy targets for any radical with a shiny new SAM. The revamping of Sudanese Air Traffic Control addressed these concerns; something we referenced in our initial report. In the reports below we finally see the news agencies addressing this issue as a plausible threat and serious concern; 5 months later. The main stream media has seen the tarnishing and fine patine of the Arab Spring materialize. Now the news is about the dangerous results produced. The hope of freedom and democracy is barely visible under the quickly corroding surface of the Arab Spring.
Breaking News!! (Not Really) The press starts to investigate claims
CNN finally dispatched reporters to cover this lead just 5 months after the original story broke (as referenced above). In the report CNN innacurately cites the number of Libyan SAM’s to be at least 20,000 units. While this is fairly close the real number of working units is more in the range of 12-14 thousand units. CNN also adds that figure in for a little bit of sensationalism. The entire stockpile has not fallen into the hands of Al Qaeda (AQIM). The current figure from on the ground intel operatives is approximately 19 units. Click Image for Video and full report
No Evidence of Missing Missiles-But Black Market “Prices Dropping“. Uhhh What?
Strictly Right Radio Co-Host Ben Swenson brought this to my attention. Swenson was the first one that I called in March after meeting with my internal investigative team. On Aug. 25 The Associated Press reported the State Department position that chemical and nuclear material in Libya were secure. Fine. Nukes were not the issue here. After all, Al Qaeda doesnt own haz-mat radiation rated suits so they cant handle the material anyways. The main question at hand was; have Islamic Fundementalists obtained any sophisticated weapons? From the AP report regarding missiles and rockets:
The fate of thousands of rockets is less clear, and other U.S. intelligence officials and counterterrorism experts criticized slow work by State Department to locate and buy back dangerous munitions like the estimated 15,000 to 25,000 shoulder-fired missiles in Gadhafi’s weapons stores.
Two U.S. officials said the prices of such missiles in the region have fallen, suggesting that some of Gadhafi’s weapons may already be reaching the market, though there is no sign that al-Qaida-linked terrorists have managed to buy any.
That was August 25 2011. Do you see how fast things change in the Intelligence community? Compare this report to the CNN one from today. The AP report from August was leaning towards the reality that as long as the nuke material was ok most of the other weapons probably fell under the same status. The State Department echoed this sentiment days later in the daily press briefing. This will be addressed in the next post. I cant give all the good stuff away now :) This barely scratches the surface
Coming up-Behind the Scenes in N. Africa and US Intel Community
In the next installment we will go over:
1) The route that the stolen man portable air defense systems (MANPADS)
2) Where some units are now residing in Sub-Saharan Africa
3) What the State Dept. knew vs. what they told journalists
4) The details of the Intel briefings in the U.K. and the U.S. from March 2011. A true secret intelligence tell-all
5) Destination Gaza: The closest vantage point for radicals to strike Israel
6) Iran attempts to take a leadership role amongst those holding the SAM’s
7) Dismantling SCUD warheads and salvaging parts vs. MANPADs kept in working order
Tonight on Pat Dollard’s “Night Watch” we discuss the recently declassified CENTCOMM report regarding Gen. Stanley McChrystal and the charges and concerns risen during Rolling Stone’s “investigative” report The Runaway General. It turns out that after more than a year Gen. McChrystal and team were absolved of any wrong-doing. Rolling Stone was wrong? You dont say! We also debunk Rolling Stone’s “Kill Team” article and offer a follow up to the original debunking: “Anti-Government Forces the Real ‘Kill Team’ in Afghanistan”
