75 Years Ago — US Detonates First Nuclear Weapon (July 16 1945)

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

Robert Oppenheimer

INTEL TODAY — Happy 4 Years Anniversary!

“History is moving pretty quickly these days, and the heroes and villains keep on changing parts.”

Ian Fleming

“If there is no such thing as ‘the Truth’ about the past, and therefore, a fortify, if there is no obligation to seek such truth, we are left only with clashing opinions. (…) But, if there is such a thing as the ‘Truth’ about the past, and if one party claims to possess it, yet without sufficient grounds, the possibility remains of questioning that claim and showing it to be mistaken or inadequate.”

Miroslav Volf — The End of Memory: Remembering Rightly in a Violent World

July 14 2020 — Today, our blog celebrates  its 4th anniversary! Let us take this opportunity to reflect about TRUTH. Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today Continue reading

Lockerbie — Three Decades of Lies: J’Accuse…! [Chapter IX – Diabolical Endgame]

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.”

Montesquieu

“The Devil’s cleverest wile is to make men believe that he does not exist.”

Charles Baudelaire — “Le Joueur Généreux” (Le Figaro –1864)

“The Scottish Criminal Case Review Commission’s decision to refer the Megrahi case back to the courts really isn’t a surprise. Issues of concern in the Lockerbie bombing trial include not least the witness payments to Tony Gauci. So back the case goes and while it may resolve some aspects relating to Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, I won’t hold my breath that it’ll cast any more light on Lockerbie. Sadly, this review will clarify some questions regarding Megrahi, but I very much doubt it’ll provide closure on Lockerbie.”

Kenny MacAskill — Former Cabinet Secretary for Justice (2007–2014)

“No court is likely get to the truth, now that various intelligence agencies have had the opportunity to corrupt the evidence.”

Oliver Miles — Former British ambassador to Libya

July 13 2020 — On March 11 2020, the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission [SCCRC] decided to refer the Lockerbie case back to the High Court of Justiciary for determination.  As a result of the Commission’s decision, Mr. Megrahi’s family was therefore entitled to instruct an appeal against his conviction.

Lockerbie — Will Xander Cage tell us the truth about Pan Am Flight 103 ?

Rory McCann (as Tennyson) leans close to Becky and whispers: “Can you tell me the real reason behind the crash of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie?”

Nina Dobrev (as Becky) whispers back: “No.”

xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017)

“We crave truth. We cannot function without it. And when our eyes are opened to truth we shade our faces in fear of the blindness that comes along…when we finally know reality. Truth does not taste well to the faint of heart. But Dr Ludwig De Braeckeleer (Intel Today) keeps on telling it as will I.”

FBI Whistleblower Dr. Frederic ‘Fred’ Whitehurst

July 12 2020 — Thank God, it is Sunday. As I write a new book on Lockerbie, I wish that Steven Spielberg had not given up on his project to tell the true story of Pan Am Flight 103! But perhaps, it is time for a new generation to speak for themselves? With their on words and in their own way. Why not?  Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

France — Chinese Moles Inside the DGSE? [UPDATE — Two former DGSE officers sentenced to 8 and 12 years in prison for treason]

“Two French agents in our service and probably one of the spouses of these agents are accused of serious acts likely to be considered acts of treason, on suspicions of delivering information to a foreign power. (…) The compromised information could undermine the security of the state.”

Florence Parly  — French Armed Forces Minister (May 24 2018)

“They are trying to learn what other powers intend to do in terms of politics, diplomacy, etcetera, while of course continuing their hunt for economic information.”

Alain Chouet — Former head of intelligence and security at the DGSE

“Contrary to other Western Intelligence Services, the DGSE masters all the intelligence collecting methods: human sources (HUMINT), technical sensors (SIGINT and satellite imagery), operational means and open-source processing. Intelligence collected through collaboration with other Services, national and foreign, is positively increasing.”

DGSE : Who we are?

DGSE Headquarters 141 Boulevard Mortier, Paris XX, France

May 26 2018 — Two ex-DGSE agents are suspected of “extremely serious” treason on behalf of a foreign power, widely believed to be China.

Bob Woodward : “Role Of Steele Dossier In Russia Probe Needs To Be Investigated” [UPDATE : Steele ordered to pay damages over ‘inaccurate’ dossier claims]

“Had Orbis been given the opportunity to respond in a private session, the statements by the Primary Sub-Source would be put in a different light. The Primary Sub-Source’s debriefings by Orbis were meticulously documented and recorded.”

Counsel for Christopher Steele and Orbis Business Intelligence (December 10 2019)

Lawyer Hugh Tomlinson: “But none of these documents [mentioned in the rebuttal to the IG report] exist, so they have all been destroyed?”

Christopher Steele :“They no longer exist. That is my assertion, indeed my assertion under oath.”

British Court (March 18 2020)

“I think it was the CIA [John Brennan] pushing this, real intelligence experts looked at this and said no, this is not intelligence, this is garbage and they took it out. But in this process, the idea that they would include something like that in one of the great stellar intelligence assessments as Mueller also found out is highly questionable. Needs to be investigated.”

Bob Woodward (April 2019)

April 26 2019 — “Watergate” journalist Bob Woodward told this week’s edition of “Fox News Sunday” that the role the Steele dossier played in the origin of the Trump-Russia investigation is “highly questionable” and “needs to be investigated.” Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

5G Belgium — The Unfathomable Hypocrisy of the Belgian Green Party [UPDATE]

“Brussels Environment has modified the software against the advice of the developers. If we were using a method scientifically correct, the Telecom operators would have to drastically reduce the power input of their antennas, with negative consequences for the network. Our administration is solely responsible for this decision, knowing full well that the method cannot be scientifically justified.”

Brussels Environment Director Frédérique Fontaine — Letter to the Environment Minister (July 3 2015)

August 8 2019 — The incompetence and dishonesty of the Belgian Green Party will never cease to amaze me. When they are not spreading Fake News in the media, they are busy destroying environmental laws they take credit for having written. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading
