CIA — Lulu got fired… Would rather play than sniff bombs

“Sometimes, even after testing, our pups make it clear being an explosive detection K9 isn’t for them.”

CIA — Twitter

“Lulu just… wasn’t into it.”

Lulu got fired from the CIA because she would rather play than sniff bombs. Nevertheless, officials at the C.I.A. wished her all the best in the future. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

The Los Alamos Primer — Section III

“In a great number of cases, I have seen Dr. Oppenheimer act — I understand that Dr. Oppenheimer acted — in a way which was for me was exceedingly hard to understand. I thoroughly disagreed with him in numerous issues and his actions frankly appeared to me confused and complicated. To this extent I feel that I would like to see the vital interests of this country in hands which I understand better, and therefore trust more. In this very limited sense I would like to express a feeling that I would feel personally more secure if public matters would rest in other hands.”

Edward Teller — Oppenheimer’s security hearing in 1954

Oppenheimer’s former colleague, physicist Edward Teller, testified on behalf of the government at Oppenheimer’s security hearing in 1954.

The ‘Los Alamos Primer’ is perhaps the most important single document of the 20th Century. Yet, it is a rather simple document that could have been written by many others “elsewhere”, and possibly several years earlier. Thus, the History of this world could have been drastically different. In this post, I  discus the  Section III of the  document: Fast Neutron Chain Reaction. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

COLD CASE — Who smeared Richard Feynman? [FBI FILES]

“The author repeatedly invokes Eisenhower’s name in awe and respect, and offers to swear either on a Bible or to the President himself. The author talks of Feynman’s “long hatred of Republicans,” but knows that Feynman registered as a Republican in 1956 — which the author believes to have been part of a long-game deception to infiltrate the government. The author could be faking it, of course, but it doesn’t read like that to me.”

Alex Wellerstein — The Nuclear Secrecy Blog

In March 2012, the website MuckRock filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to obtain and release Feynman’s full FBI file. Obviously, someone really did not like Feynman and told the FBI that he was a risk to the US National Security. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

MI5 Boss : “More attacks are inevitable.”

“They [staff at MI5] are constantly making tough professional judgements based on fragments of intelligence; pinpricks of light against a dark and shifting canvas. (…) The threat is multi-dimensional, evolving rapidly and operating at a scale and pace we’ve not seen before.”

Andrew Parker — Head of MI5

PT/35(b) — The Most Expensive Forgery in History [Lockerbie]

“Without PT/35(b), there would have been no indictment.”

Richard Marquise — FBI Agent who led the US side of the Lockerbie investigation

“I regard the Lockerbie verdict against Megrahi as a ‘Grand Monument to Human Stupidity’.  Indeed, the written opinion of the Lockerbie judges is a remarkable document that claims an ‘honoured place in the history of British miscarriages of justice.’ If the SCCRC Commission accepts the application for a full review, the infamous Zeist verdict doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of surviving.”

INTEL TODAY — July 5 2017

“If Ludwig is correct — and he usually is — and the type of copper used in PT35b can be dated 1989 / early 90s, then it adds enormously to the evidence that the fragment was not found by Hayes in May 1989 as claimed. I have consistently claimed this since 2002 but following on from John Ashton’s achievements re the tinning this could be the biggest breakthrough to date.”

George Thomson — Lockerbie Investigator (October 4 2015)

“Once more, careful analysis of tiny bits of evidence and expert opinions appears to show that police and other officials have misrepresented and distorted the facts. It brings us back, yet again, to the question: can all of these misrepresentations of evidence really be adequately explained by stupidity?”

Paul Feeney — British Terrorism Expert

DP/508 A

PT/35(b) is a small fragment of a circuit timer that was allegedly found among the debris of Pan Am 103 near the town of Lockerbie. After more than ten years of investigation, I have come to the conclusion that PT/35(b) is a forgery that was planted among the debris to implicate Libya in the bombing of Pan Am 103 and to steer the investigation away from the original suspects.

The Real Story Behind Netflix’s Narcos

“What we’ve learned is that if you look at history what happened with the Medellin Cartel after we took them down, Cali Cartel got stronger, right? Then we take them down, and North Valle Cartel takes over. We’re taking down cartels, and another cartel is born.”

Javier Pena — Former DEA officer

The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)’s Javier Pena was one of two US agents who was instrumental in bringing down Pablo Escobar and the notorious Medellin Cartel. Pena and his partner Steve Murphy, both depicted in Narcos, were consultants on the show’s first two seasons. After the death of Escobar, the real-life Pena went back to Colombia to crack the Cali Cartel. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

Maltese Investigative Blogger Killed in Car Bomb

The best way to think of Daphne Caruana Galizia is as a one-woman WikiLeaks, crusading against untransparency and corruption in Malta, an island nation famous for both. To John Dalli, a former European commissioner whom she helped bring down in a tobacco lobbying scandal, Galizia is “a terrorist.” To opposition MPs, she’s a political force of nature, one who fortunately has her guns aimed at the other side of the aisle. “She single-handedly brought the government to the verge of collapse,” says one MP. “The lady has balls,” says another.

Daphne Caruana Galizia — 26 August 1964 – 16 October 2017

VALLETTA  – Daphne Caruana Galizia — Malta’s best-known investigative journalist — was killed on Monday (October 16 2017) when a powerful bomb blew up her car. Galizia was 53 and leaves a husband and three sons. Follow us on Twitter: @INTEL_TODAY Continue reading

One Year Ago — BELGIUM — Europe’s Most Wanted

“Mr Atar’s situation is being followed closely. Repeated requests made by Belgium to the Iraqi government to consider an early release for humanitarian reasons have been fruitless so far.”

The Los Alamos Primer — Section II

“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

“I don’t want to see that son-of-a-bitch in this office ever again.”

US President Truman (About Oppenheimer to Undersecretary of State Dean Acheson)

Julius Robert Oppenheimer (April 22, 1904 – February 18, 1967) was an American theoretical physicist and professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. Oppenheimer was the wartime head of the Los Alamos Laboratory and is among those who are credited with being the “father of the atomic bomb” for their role in the Manhattan Project, the World War II undertaking that developed the first nuclear weapons used in the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The ‘Los Alamos Primer’ is perhaps the most important single document of the 20th Century. Yet, it is a rather simple document that could have been written by many others “elsewhere”, and possibly several years earlier. Thus, the History of this world could have been drastically different.
