Did Mary McCarthy leak to comply with the Nuremberg obligation?
It is bound to be awkward indeed to take her to court for revealing
war crimes. And she will have earned not only a badge of courage but
also exculpatory evidence in the event there are prosecutions - here
Mary McCarthy is an independent thinker, which she proved during her
tenure as Senior Director for Intelligence Programs at the White
House from 1998 to 2001. There she achieved some notoriety for the
personal letter she sent President Bill Clinton, criticizing the
flimsiness of the "intelligence" that led to the cruise missile
strike on the Sudanese pharmaceutical plant that some suggested
might be producing chemical warfare agent. She was correct.
In 2004, when the torture of prisoners was depicted in the leaked
photos from Abu Ghraib, that Mary McCarthy returned to the CIA from
a sabbatical that followed her stint at the White House.
Mary McCarthy assumed a position in the office of CIA Inspector
General John Helgersen, who is responsible for internal
investigations of wrongdoing by the agency and has extraordinary
access to secrets deprived to others under the need-to-know
principle. It is well known that agency personnel, who witnessed
torture by the US military in Guantanamo, for example, complained to
superiors and to the White House. It is a safe bet that some agency
officers also registered objections to "extraordinary rendition,"
including kidnapping and transporting "terrorist suspects" to so-
called black prison camps for interrogation - "with the gloves
off," In addition, some CIA officers may have learned of the
warrantless eavesdropping in violation of NSA's "eleventh
commandment" - thou shall not spy on Americans.When Mary McCarthy
came on board, she no doubt gained inside insight into complaints of
a variety of abuses.
Those who have worked with her testify to her respect for law
and regulation. That she had more than passing interest in, and
respect for the law is suggested not only by her decision several
years ago to attend law school at night, but also by the hackles she
reportedly raised among testosterone-laden operatives who saw her in
her White House role as an annoying hindrance to aggressive tactics
against terrorists. Given the courage and independence she showed
in Mary McCarthy's earlier professional life together with her
sensitivity to the law, it is a safe bet she tried hard to get
management to address the more egregious abuses - torture and
rendition, for example. It is equally likely that she got no help
from former director George Tenet or current director Porter Goss,
both of them on the end of a tight leash held by Vice President Dick
The recent Washington Post report, quoting intelligence officials to
the effect that "the White House has recently barraged the agency
with questions about the political affiliations of some of its
senior intelligence officers"
18 US Code 2441 (the War Crimes Act of 1996 condemning torture) and
the "Nuremberg obligation" to do what one reasonably can to prevent
the commission of international crimes like torture.

Washington bureau chief Philip Taubman were summoned to an oval

to dissuade the Times from publishing the warrantless eavesdropping
story, which then appeared 11 days later. In order to avoid the
embarrassment of not having carried such a critical story by one of
its own writers, the Times told the White House that the story was
about to be published. The Times bowed for over a year to White

U.S. Officials Aided WTC Hijackers To Remain In Country Illegally
Prior To 9/11
Former immigration officer for Homeland Security incriminates

26 May 2005
Mary Schneider, a woman works 31 years for the federal government,
finds out crucial evidence about 9/11and tries to report the
bombshell news to her bosses. But instead of being given a medal of
honor, she's immediately fired and told point blank to keep her
She then launches a highly critical web site, providing solid
evidence that the Bush administration aided Osama bin Laden's
brother, Khalil, out of the country on September 16, 2001, before he
could be questioned, even though top officials knew he had terrorist
ties and had funded terrorist organizations abroad.
Further, she gives explicit details how U.S. officials accepted
bribes for giving phony marriage certificates to illegal Muslims
prior to 9/11 in order to allow them to remain in America unnoticed.
The evidence she provides links the marriage scam to Mohamed Atta,
named by the government as the ringleader of the 9/11 terrorists.
Her evidence further shows that government officials not only knew
that Atta resided in Florida as early as 1997, but that officials
even assisted him financially in remaining in America illegally.
To add more fuel to the fire, she names "big time names," revealing
that former FBI Director Louis Freeh, Attorney General John
Ashcroft, FBI Director Robert Mueller and numerous U.S. senators and
congressmen knew before the September 11 attacks that U.S.
immigration officials were bribed by an illegal Moroccan Muslim
linked to Osama bin Laden's half-brother, Khalil.
Mary Schneider of Orlando, a former citizenship and immigration
officer for the Department of Homeland Security, thought she was
doing the right thing and thought she acted with good intentions.
She thought she was being patriotic, thought she was acting for God
and country when she blew the whistle on rampant corruption within
the immigration division of the newly formed Homeland Security
Instead, Schneider walked right into the middle of a hornet's nest.
Instead she walked right in the middle something high level
officials like Ashcroft and others desperately have tried to keep
So, instead of being encouraged to testify about what she knew about
9/11, government agents were instructed to "put the screws" to
Schneider. They were instructed to keep her quiet at all costs, even
if it meant harassing her and discrediting her to the point of
complete social, emotional and financial ruin.
And one year after Schneider blew the whistle, the government has
pretty much succeeded. One year later she finds herself in
seclusion, the victim of harassment, left penniless and over
$200,000 in debt from legal bills.
Her only marginal victory thus far came in March when a federal
appeals court kept alive her case against the Department of Homeland
Security, remanding it back to the lower court for further
testimony. Whether it's a victory for the underdog or just delaying
the inevitable, remains to be seen. But in the meantime, Schneider
fights on from her only remaining battle station, her web site,
trying to raise needed money for her defense.
"After suffering unending illegal punishments of continuous
retaliations and reprisals, I am being severely punished, again, by
these traitors, fired without compensation, $200k in debt from
continuing forced litigation, soon to be out on the street
penniless, destitute after 30 years of federal service, for working
around the clock 24/7 trying to protect you, your loved ones and all
of our beloved Americans," said Schneider as she not only tries to
get her job back but tries to alert her fellow citizens about
rampant government corruption concerning the events surrounding 9/11.
"My greatest concern and deepest heartache is realizing that, after
all of my efforts, these on-going, extensive, insidious treason
conspiracies by traitors to our constitution, to our rule of law,
reneging on their sworn oath to protect and defend the American
people, of corrupt federal officials giving aid and comfort to
illegal Muslims with green cards and United States citizenship after
they have committed numerous felonies, will not be exposed and
stopped until further innocent blood is shed on our soil and more
innocent blood is shed on foreign soil.
"And still to this day, three years after the September 11 attacks,
ongoing briberies and cover-up conspiracies continue unabated, in
blatant, egregious violations of Title 18 of the United States Code,
sections 1001 and 1425(b)."
After first learning of the possible government connection with the
9/11 hijackers and Khalil bin Laden, information that has
subsequently been verified by numerous sources, Schneider
immediately notified the FBI New York City Joint Anti-Terrorism and
the Ft. Lauderdale, Florida Department of Justice Inspector
General's (IG) office.
But instead of holding her supervisors accountable, they were all
exonerated without serious investigation as Schneider was first put
on leave and then fired for her whistle blowing. Feeling betrayed,
she contacted almost every lawmaker on Capital Hill but still to
this day nobody has mounted a serious campaign to get to the bottom
of her story.
Schneider said even the mainstream media ignored her, adding that
their refusal to "cover her story" is the main reason most Americans
remain unaware of her plight as well as the "real truth behind 9/11
and the Bush administration."...
Cover-up concerning the flight schools in Florida
As the result of a two-year investigation, an intrepid journalist,
Daniel Hopsicker, has disclosed evidence of a cover-up concerning
the flight schools in Florida that trained three of the four
terrorists who piloted the hijacked planes. Daniel Hopsicker saw
Venice, Fla., as the biggest unexploded crime scene in the September
11, 2001 attacks
Hopsicker discloses evidence that shatters the FBI's timeline of
Mohamed Atta's movements.
Hopsicker demonstrates that Atta's relationship with flight school
executive Rudi Dekkers was not what he testified it was under oath.
Hopsicker provides testimony of FBI witness intimidation.
Hopsicker simultaneously shows, that the CIA "was actually running
the operation" that brought Arab pilot trainees into Florida.
The journalist traces the ownership of flight schools, airlines and
planes from Washington State, to Las Vegas, to an extremely wealthy
man named Wally Hilliard. Hilliard had invested heavily in Huffman
Aviation and it was there that Britannia Aviation worked under
Huffman's FAA license. At a town hall meeting, the Britannia
representative let on that the company had done aviation maintenance
for Caribe Air while at Venice Airport, not realizing that it would
quickly be recognized as a CIA proprietary airline by local
In his December 29, 2003 Hopsicker said:: "I discovered that we were
dealing with flight school owners who are CIA assets. ... Mohamed
Atta was in this country as a result of a program being run through
the Central Intelligence Agency." He is so confident of his evidence
that he wants his day in court. "Sue me," Hopsicker said on
radio, "if this is incorrect information." On the same broadcast,
the journalist told listeners what he thought were the broad
strategic considerations: "Somebody in the U.S. government was
trading with Osama bin Laden and the deal, almost, very likely, was
oil and heroin for guns and training. Either the CIA was secretly
trading with Osama bin Laden or people who were able to manipulate
the CIA were trading with Osama bin Laden. And his people, the
representatives of his drug-trafficking Islamic organization, turned
around and double-crossed us."
Hopsicker's unnamed source places Atta at Maxwell Air Force Base's
International Officer's Training School, and the author covers the
significant leaks made by individuals in the military regarding
Hopsicker writes that Hilliard and Dekkers were implicated in a
federal complaint accusing them of making "unauthorized and
unsupervised flights," without an operating certificate, during
April and May of 1999. Hopsicker's sources tell him that Hilliard
and Dekkers were "ferrying Saudi princes" all over the United
Hopsicker writes it was just a strange coincidence that of the over
220 flight schools in Florida.
Daniel Hopsicker takes on increased significance given at least
three considerations: 1) the FBI's investigation of 9/11, according
to a regional FBI office, was directed from the White House; 2) the
investigation was impeded by the shift of resources to the
subsequent anthrax attacks; and 3) the records from the Venice
police station and from Huffman Aviation were deemed so sensitive
that the president's brother, Governor Jeb Bush, personally escorted
them to Washington immediately after the attacks.
Why did Jeb Bush and federal agents seize records from Huffman
Aviation - Florida flight school of Mohammed Atta, and other 9/11
hijackers - in the middle of the night following the attacks of
September 11th and load them onto a C-130? And why did Jeb Bush
know, hours after the attack, where to look?
"Whatever secrets Dekkers may possess about the terrorists, records
from his flight school were deemed sensitive enough to have merited
being escorted back to Washington by Florida Governor Jeb Bush
aboard a C-130 cargo plane, which left Sarasota less than 24 hours
after the September 11 attack."
Governor Jeb Bush has never been asked to publicly testify by anyone
about where he took all the Florida flight school records pertaining
to both dead and remaining Muslim pilots still in Florida.
The documents, confiscated by Governor Bush, would reveal whether
the alleged hijackers possessed the necessary skill to fly jumbo
jets, but also information regarding their test scores, personality
ratings, residences, financial payment records and flight training
after-action reports, etc. All this, while also having met in
private with his brother, President George W. Bush, the night before
the attacks at the Colony Beach and Tennis Club at Longboat Key,
