1. "He is expected to present his final report to the U.N. General Assembly in October."
And until then? And once the "report" is filed, what then?
"As a matter of international law, the U.S. drone campaign in Pakistan is ... being conducted without the consent of the elected representatives of the people, or the legitimate Government of the State," Emmerson said in a statement issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva.
It is being done without the consent of the American people who aren't supposed to even know about it except when it makes the *current* administration look "tough on terror". But there's barely a peep. And this is how buy-partisanship is achieved.
By the way, some recent research turned up the fact that Porter Goss, a co-sponsor of the USA PATRIOT Act and a co-chair of the Joint 9/11 Intelligence Inquiry was having breakfast with a one General Mahmud Almed-----get this---who is identified by the FBI as one of the chief money men behind the hijackers----- on the morning of 911.<<-----Please re read that!
Porter Goss (of Operation 40- the grandaddy spooks) holds a mini press conference outside the Capitol presumably after the first and second planes hit -and before/during flight 77 hit--(goss@0:29):
I think that's flight 77. And that is an explosion before 77 hits. And this is one of the most important tv clips aired on that day, and few have either seen or remember it.
Check out who was in Operation 40:
Frank Sturgis (who would later become one of the Watergate burglars); Felix Rodriguez (a CIA officer who later was involved in the capture and summary execution of Che Guevara); Luis Posada Carriles (held in the US in 2010 on charges of illegal immigration, he is demanded by Venezuela for his key role in the execution of the 1976 Cubana Flight 455 bombing); Orlando Bosch (founder of the counterrevolutionary Coordination of United Revolutionary Organizations, that organized the 1976 murder of Chilean former minister Orlando Letelier); Rafael 'Chi Chi' Quintero; Virgilio Paz Romero; Pedro Luis Diaz Lanz; Bernard Barker; Porter Goss; and Barry Seal. Members took part in the April 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion directed against the government of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro.
The only known picture of Op 40:
Seal is seated third from left. Sitting right next to him (second from left) is Porter Goss. Beside Goss is notorious "freedom fighter" Felix Rodriguez (front left), a Cuban vice cop under the corrupt Mob-run Batista regime in Cuba who later became an Iran Contra operative and a confidant of the first George Bush.
On the other side of the table is the the only spook celebrant displaying any regard for tradecraft... Covering his face with his sport coat is Frank Sturgis, famous for being one of the Watergate burglars.
