Painwashing is brainwashing: repeating the same painful stories over
and over again to individuals (in this case a jury) till their resistance to
questioning gives in. The hurtful repetition induces a kind of trance. And in
the flood of emotionally-charged 9/11 recollections, rational logical questioning
of who was responsible for what is disappeared. Repeating the effects of the
tragedy becomes a false proof of guilt for the patsy Zacarias Moussaoui. It
also attempts to hypnotize the country into the 9/11 trance once again.
It’s not unlike stunning the defendant himself with a painful jolt of
electric via the alleged stun belt under his clothing, till he does and says
what is expected of him, reported in my Online Journal article, Was
Moussaoui outfitted with a hidden ‘stun belt’ at trial?
Actually, the jury “painwashing” was duly noted by U.S. District
Court Judge Leonie Brinkema, after complaints from defense lawyers “that
a stream of victim-impact testimony last week would be overly prejudicial to
the jury that must decide if Moussaoui is to be executed,” as reported
in an MSNBC.com article, Moussaoui
jury to hear painful testimony – Judge warns against using emotion Sept.
11 accounts to influence jury.
The article reports, “The wrenching first-person account of the day’s
horrors came on the same day that the judge in the death-penalty trial warned
prosecutors against relying too heavily on such emotional testimony to influence
Moussaoui’s jury. . . . Brinkema acknowledged that there is no way to
avoid emotional testimony in this case, but reminded prosecutors that overly
prejudicial testimony can be grounds for overturning a death sentence on appeal.
“You may pay a price for that down the road,” the Judge told prosecutors.”
The price would be condemning the wrong person to death and letting the real
culprits go free.
Another challenge to the prosecution’s tactics came from Kristen Breitweiser,
who lost her husband, a financial executive, on 9/11. She said, “I certainly
wasn’t invited to give a witness impact statement. I certainly don’t
know anyone who was invited. When it comes to 9/11 and the government, everything
is nontransparent.” I quoted Mrs. Breitweiser in an earlier Online Journal
article on the over-zealous testimony of New York’s former mayor, Rudy
Giuliani slavering witness for Moussaoui prosecution.
Again she had a very different notion of events and said, “Can someone
please explain to me why Rudy Giuliani gets to give a victim's impact statement
at the Moussaoui penalty phase hearing? Which family member did Guiliani lose
in the attacks?
“Forgive me, but Giuliani is the person responsible for deciding to locate
NYC's emergency command center in the World Trade Center along with a diesel
fuel tank (against the advice of certain FDNY officials) before 9/11.”
For the full thrust of her reasoning, check the article.
It also Interesting that in a New York Daily News article, Snubbed
kin air outrage at 9/11 trial, “Wayne Myers, a Manhattan psychiatrist,
said he can understand why relatives would want to directly help convince the
jury to condemn Moussaoui to death. ‘You have the ability to exact some
revenge. It gives a belated chance to master some control over the situation.’"
That is psychologically true. Obviously it’s not a reliable path to legal
truth. It offers an opportunity for victims’ families, as tragic as they
are, to go for the only so called “perpetrator' offered to them.”
Better him than no one," must go through their minds. Yet, keep a bit of
the past in your mind about Moussaoui. It’s major. And it hasn’t
been brought to the jury’s attention.
U.S. Gave Top Secrets to Moussaoui in 2002
As of September 27, 2002, in an explosive New York Times article,
U.S. Gave Secrets to Terror Suspect by Philip Shenon, the reporter tells us,
“Although Mr. Moussaoui, 34, a French national, has admitted that he is
a member of Al Qaeda and is loyal to Osama bin Laden, he has insisted that
he had nothing to do with the Sept. 11 attacks.” Remember that: insistence
he had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks. Then ask, what occurred in
the interim to turn his testimony totally around? Could it possibly be brainwashing,
Also, the occasion for Shenon’s article is that “Federal prosecutors
mistakenly turned over 48 classified F.B. I. reports to Zacharias Moussaoui
in what a federal judge described as a grave security breach, the government
acknowledged in court documents released today.
“The reports, which were summaries of interviews related to Mr. Moussaoui’s
case and the bureau’s larger investigation of the terror network of Al
Qaeda, were retrieved in search of his jail cell this summer on the order of
the judge, Leonie M. Brinkema.” Once more, Judge Brinkema to the rescue,
this time to save the FBI’s strange gaff.
“Judge Brinkema ordered the searches, which took place over several days,
after determining that ‘significant national security interests of the
United States could be compromised if the defendant were to retain copies of
this classified information.’” Could it be the FBI wanted Moussaoui
to see these papers, to further incriminate him with possessing information
he originally did not have?
In fact, the FBI acknowledged that it was “dangerous” for this
material to be in Moussaoui’s possession, especially since he was the
only person charged in an American court in the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Could
the FBI be that dumb? Or was their plan, as I said, to bury Moussaoui
deeper in that misplaced information?
Judge Brinkema revealed the story at the request of Moussaoui’s court
appointed lawyers, “Over the protests of the prosecutors, who have not
revealed how the mistakes were made.” What’s more, “Justice
Department officials said . . . that the errors involving the documents were
now the subject of an internal investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”
Well good luck with that one. Any results yet, several years later?
Moussaoui obviously had no clearance to see the highly classified materials.
The documents were given to him “in the pretrial discovery process, in
which prosecutors are required to provide defendants with evidence that they
may use against them at trial.” Didn’t anybody look at what was
in the boxes? This was Mr. 9/11 about to go on trial.
Yet the Justice Department said that the prosecutors in Alexandria “were
convinced that Mr. Moussaoui had not read the documents at issue, since they
were among huge stacks of paper and computer disks that had been provided to
him after he announced in April that he wanted to act as his own lawyer and
fire his court-appointed defense team.” Not to worry, I guess. He’s
a slow reader.
But, in fact, he’d been given millions of documents and pieces of evidence,
some which could have been passed on some way if that were his purpose. Yet
a department official said, “But that doesn’t mean we’re trying
to excuse this. It’s a grand mess-up.” Yet the government didn’t
want to release this embarrassing information, even though that could have compromised
Originally, it was only two documents in question. A week later it was another
five. Several days later, it was five to seven documents. But one of the pair
of missing documents “is the most critical (for reasons I [US Attorney
Paul J. McNulty] can explain in a more secure form).” Ah, the old more
Yet on Sept. 5, McNulty wrote to the Judge again, asking for 43 classified
documents to be gotten back from Moussaoui. Probably totally fed up with the
feds’ bungling, Brinkema ordered “that United States Marshals Service
seize any box of evidence that contained F.B.I. interview summaries.”
Sure, take the guy’s mattress. How about his shorts?
Nevertheless the judge commented that “Mr. Moussaoui had been ‘cooperative’
[imagine] during the early searches ‘and the deputies were able to cover
all of the CD ROM’s’ on which some of the documents were stored.”
And this is the guy to whom we want to give a fatal hot shot. A person we have
been—what should I call it— brain/painwashing (?) into redacting
his original plea of non-involvement with 9/11 for almost three years.
Judge Brinkema May Call Richard Reid as Witness
A very reliable source, in fact the person that suggested my article headline,
Candidate, wrote to me that, “Defense lawyers have already said they
think the jury should spare Moussaoui's life because of his limited role in
the attacks, evidence that he is mentally ill and because his execution would
only play into his dream of martyrdom.”
And guess what? “On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema issued
an order requiring an unidentified individual to be produced for testimony.
The order apparently applied to would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid. Defense lawyers
issued a subpoena last week seeking his testimony. Prosecutors had opposed the
”Moussaoui testified previously that he and Reid were going to hijack
a fifth plane on Sept. 11 and fly it into the White House. The defense lawyers,
who have tried to discredit their client's credibility, have said Moussaoui
is exaggerating his role in Sept. 11 to inflate his role in history.
”Alas, I think Madame Leonie is on to something . . . Richard
Reid's ‘antics’ not only parallel those of Mr. Moussaoui, but tend
to support another gem: that Reid, too, was hypno-programmed to advance the
trumped-up Osamadunnit myth, which in turn matches up with the fact that most
of those beneath Mohammed Atta were actually ‘hypno-robots,’ programmed
to perform sans conscious knowledge of same.”
Back at the Courthouse Came More Pain
In a full court emotional press, children testified, grandfathers, mothers,
wives, voices from the Towers crying for help. And, for the first time ever,
the battered black box from Flight 93 appeared like the Holy Grail for the jury
to hear. Neil A. Lewis wrote about it in the yesterday's New York Times,
in his article Final
Struggles on 9/11 Plane Fill Courtroom.
This would be the first and last time the purported black box tape
would be heard in public said Judge Brinkema, though a nine-page transcript
would be released. Remember that voice-cloning technology that the folks from
Los Alamos designed? A sampling of any voice can be used to clone that voice,
with which any person can then speak any words desired.
That aside Neil Lewis reports, “The release of the transcript comes as
Universal Studios is about to release a film about the event called ‘United
93,’ the trailer of which some moviegoers found too disturbing. The transcript
may provide another template against which to measure the film’s accuracy.”
What an incredible coincidence, a multi-media campaign to brain/pain/wash the
public concerning the events of Flight 93. Another template to generate emotional
But what about subjecting the black box itself to an independent investigation,
conducted by critics as well as bobbing heads, given the fact that the original
Zapruder film of the Kennedy Assassination was totally manipulated by the CIA
by the day after the murder. See Professor James Fetzer’s amazing book
The Great Zapruder Film Hoax from Cat Feet Press.
How About Some Alternative Information?
In fact, speaking of media materials, I wonder why they don’t show the
jury the DVD of “Loose
Change’s Part 2,” and look at some alternative evidence and
thinking. LC’s clear, logical and concise 90 minutes proves to even the
nearly deaf, numbed and almost blind, that Towers 1 and 2 fell because of a
series of heavy internal detonations. Fire alone, especially not a half to an
hour and a half’s worth, has never in history taken down steel-framed
buildings, in this case redundant steel buildings.
The 9/11 liners, most likely remote controlled A-3 Sky Warriors, 60 percent
the size of 757s, weren’t carrying passengers or terrorists. They acted
as a dramatic, shock and awe-inspiring diversion from the internal explosions
and planned demolition, including Silverstein’s Tower 7, which wasn’t
even hit, but “pulled.” The names and pictures of terrorists, pulled
out of a hat, had, according to FBI Chief Robert Mueller, no real basis in fact.
And don’t forget old Marvin Bush, the president’s brother, who
was on the board of Securacom, the company that did security for the WTC from
the early 1990s through 9/11, and for the armed forces as well and Dulles Airport.
After 9/11, Securacom was let go. They served their purpose. And they changed
their name to Stratesec. Catchy isn’t it. And they were delisted from
the stock exchange in 2002.
What’s more, it was an A3 that hit the Pentagon as well, flown by remote
control, and firing a bunker-buster into the West Wing wall before the craft
hit and collapsed into three rings and through some 12 feet of solid concrete
and steel. The debris of the A3, including its two JT8D engines, was removed
by 500 FBI men within 15 minutes and transported to the North parking lot and
removed to an undisclosed location. Part
of a JT8D engine was also found in a wire garbage holder on Murray Street near
the Twin Towers conflagration. See them side by side in the link.
Flight 93 was en route to San Francisco and diverted to Cleveland where it
landed at Hopkins Airport at 10:45 AM, evacuated by 11:15 AM. I believe the
voice tape is a sham, a CIA audio fiction, not unlike the Hollywood analog to
come. F93’s 200 passengers were unloaded within a half hour, and brought
to an old NASA facility nearby. Where those people and Flight 77s passengers
were really taken has yet to be revealed. All that was found in Pennsylvania,
where 93 supposedly went down, was a smoking hole in the ground filled with
More Food for Thought
And then there were those millions and million of dollars made on the Stock
Exchange in puts days before 9/11. Puts are bets and the betting was that prices
would go down on the stock of American Airlines, United Airlines, even Morgan
Stanley, one of the investment companies located in the Towers. To this day,
$2.5 million dollars in put’ profits remain unclaimed. Was that suspicious
foreknowledge of events for private profit mentioned at the trial?
And then there was the gold, baby, the gold. Follow the shiny stuff. Was this
Rudy Giuliani claimed they reclaimed some $230 million in gold from the rubble
of the Towers. Later, an abandoned 10-wheel delivery truck and a fleet of cars
were discovered in a tunnel between Buildings 4 and 5, running it seemed from
the soon to tumble South Tower, the second hit. Bottom line, it was really more
like $160 billion in gold that had been stored under the Towers by various banks
and corporations. So, where did the gold go after it left the 10-wheel truck?
Perhaps it was the ultimate pay-off for the high-level government participants
This is evidence the jury should be looking at and evaluating as well, not
just the beleaguered Moussaoui, the guy that gave the FBI back more than a million
pieces of 9/11 terror evidence, the same they “mistakenly sent him,”
the guy who has redacted his statement of having nothing to do with 9/11 as
of Sept 2002. Brain/pain/washing anybody?
So shower the lies off your brains, members of the jury, people of
America. Remember the five fake terror hijacking drills that drained all the
fighter planes from the Northeast seaboard, including New York City. The few
planes left arrived too late there to shoot the liners down. Wash off that pain
which ignorance perpetuates, jurors and fellow citizens. Deprogram your brains
one and all from the 9/11 myth. You can do it. I believe in you, god knows.
You can save yourself and send Bush, Cheney and their vicious Company to the
rock pile or lethal needle once and for all.
In short, don’t let the wrong man die. If you do, as Judge Brinkema would
say, “You may pay a price for that down the road.” A very big price
-- I might add: your country.
