For this new year, ‘Intel Today’ promises you some stories about an amazing woman (#9 Jeanne Vertefeuille) and ‘a bit more truth’ about how  ENIGMA (#8) was actually deciphered! And we will take a look at the KRYPTOS code!

As for story #10, I will offer you a picture right now! A picture is — indeed — worth a thousand words!


George H. W. Bush served as the DCI for 355 days, from January 30, 1976, to January 20, 1977

Last but not least, I will tell you about a true UK ‘X-file’ that should be disclosed: Lockerbie — Pan Am 103.

Warning: This is not a joke. This X-File is highly restricted and can only be read by just a few people. Not even a UK Secretary of Justice could access the document! (What is the link with the CIA anyway?)

    Not sure what to write to effected families of Lockerbie Pan Am 103 at this time but my thoughts are with you.

    Police Scotland [PS] investigation – Operation Sandwood
    As an interested observer and Scottish taxpayer, what on earth is going on ? Nearing one year late to deliver a report, this is totally unacceptable.
    Enough is enough is enough.

    Police Scotland is an organisation in a state of dysfunction and this so-called investigation proves that. These matters must be removed from all Scottish agencies with immediate effect.
    Apparently, PS at taxpayer expense have retained their own counsel to counter the professional mistrust at [Scottish] Crown office.

    So Police Scotland as an organisation does not trust the staff at every level of the Crown office.
    This proves the Scottish judicial system is not fit for purpose and dysfunctional.
    When the cops are saying Crown office is unbelievable and hostile, every solicitor could say the same noting Police Scotland evidence.

    Put everything on the internet, the whole lot.
    Nobody can argue the truth or publicly funded information.
    Call these lying political scumbags for what they are.

    Send it to me and it will be on Scribd within minutes.

    167 page Scottish police report regarding Lockerbie, June 1989 is online.
