For Defense Secretary, Obama elected to continue with Bush pick Robert Gates (CFR, Bilderberger).
Hillary is not a CFR member, but husband Bill is, and her State Department is laden with CFR members, including James B. Steinberg (Deputy Secretary of State), William J. Burns (Under Secretary for Political Affairs), Susan Rice (U.S. Ambassador to the UN), Jacob J. Lew (Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources), Todd Stern (Special Envoy for Climate Change), and many others.
The Department of Homeland Security, which many Americans fear may turn our country into an Orwellian surveillance society, was conceived before 9/11 by a task force called the U.S. Commission on National Security, nine of whose 12 members belonged to the CFR.
he administration of the department under Obama is particularly heavy with CFR members, including Janet Napolitano (Secretary), Jane Holl Lute (Deputy Secretary), Juliette Kayyem (Assistant Secretary, Office of Intergovernmental Programs), and Alan Bersin (Assistant Secretary, Office of International Affairs).
Thus the CFR continues to dominate our government’s key areas: finance, defense, foreign policy, and security. To this may be added various other Obama CFR appointees, such as Mona Sutphen (White House Deputy Chief of Staff), Paul Volcker (Chairman, Economic Recovery Advisory Board), Peter Cowhey, (Senior Counsel, Office of U.S. Trade Representative), and Eric Shinseki (Secretary of Veterans Affairs).
The idea that Barack Obama became president from a “grass-roots” movement is illusory
the same Rothchild elite who run our government, mega-banks, and multinational corporations also run the major media, as an inspection of the CFR membership roster would reveal.
. A few people are added as “window dressing” to give the group distinction and a veneer of diversity. An example is movie star Angelina Jolie. No one suspects Jolie knows from about foreign affairs or is a conspirator for world government. But within the CFR are hardcore globalists who, linked with their foreign counterparts through the Bilderbergers and Trilateral Commission, head the drive for one-world government.
Though numerically small (less than 1,000 members during the Kennedy years, less than 4,500 today), this organization has dominated every administration for over seven decades.
And Reagan started the NAFTA deal with the backing up of CFR
think tank executives, lobbyist lawyers, NATO and Pentagon military leaders, wealthy industrialists, journalists, media owners and executives, university presidents and key professors, select Congressmen, Supreme Court Justices, Federal Judges, wealthy entrepreneurs, and as many as ten 9-11 Commission Members.
the CFR does have a reputation as one of the "triumvirate of elite organizations" together with the Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission. Elitism doesn't necessarily preclude the ability to provide unbiased and useful service however.
Carroll Quigley, Professor of History at Georgetown University, stated, "The Council of Foreign Relations is the American Branch of a society which originated in England and believes national boundaries should be obliterated and one-world rule established."
In 1938 the Council created numerous Committees on Foreign Relations throughout the county, in 1995 the Committees became a separate organization under the umbrella of the American Committees on Foreign Relations in Washington D.C..
CFR is linked to other groups - such as the Trilateral Commission, the Illuminati, the Skull and Bones Society, and the Bilderberg Group - and portrayed as between them seeking to impose the 'new world order'
The Council-sponsored Task Force on Transatlantic Relations is made possible by generous grants from ENI SpA and Merrill Lynch."

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
is also known as Pratt House.
Edward Mandell House, who had been the chief advisor of President Woodrow Wilson. Actually, he was more than just a prominent aide of the President; he dominated the President. He was referred to as Wilson’s "alter ego" (other self), and was credited for being the most powerful individual in the United States during the Wilson Administration from 1913 until 1921.
Republicans Eisenhower and Nixon were members of the CFR, as were Democrats Stevenson, Kennedy, Humphrey, and McGovern. (Note: We believe Kennedy became disloyal to the CFR prior to his assassination.") The American people think that they have a choice when they vote for a President, but the truth of the matter is , with few exceptions: Presidential candidates for decades have been CFR members.
the Chairman of the Board of this immensely powerful pyramid was stated as being none other than David Rockefeller himself.
"Its members have run, or are running, NBC and CBS, ‘The New York Times’, ‘The Washington Post’, ‘The Des Moines Register’, and many other important newspapers. The leaders of ‘Time’, ‘Newsweek’, ‘Fortune’, ‘Business Week’, and numerous other publications are CFR members. The organization’s members also dominate the academic world, top corporations, the huge tax-exempt foundations, labor unions, the military, and just about every segment of American life."

. The masterminds behind this great conspiracy have absolute control of all of our mass-communications media, especially television, the radio, the press, and Hollywood. We all know that our State Department, the Pentagon, and the White House have brazenly proclaimed that they have the right and the power to manage the news, to tell us not the truth but what they want us to believe.
our so-called leaders in Washington, who we elected to safeguard our nation and our Constitution, are the betrayers and that behind them are a comparatively small group of men whose sole-objective is to enslave the whole world of humanity
Task Force Report by Jeb Bush, Chair, Thomas F. III McLarty, Chair, and Edward Alden, Director
In New York it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a front for J. P. Morgan and Company.
the original plans for the Royal Institute of International Affairsand the Council on Foreign Relations were drawn up at Paris.
nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.
David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Bill Clinton, Brent Scowcroft
To fulfill his global vision, Rhodes established the Rhodes Trust. The inner circle of this "secret society" - "The Society of the Elect" -- included freemason Lord Alfred Milner, William T. Stead and Reginald Baliol Brett (titled Lord Esher). When Rhodes died in 1902, he left the "Society," the Rhodes Trust and the leadership primarily in the "hands" of Lord Milner. This Round Table Group would eventually establish numerous international branches. In the U.S.A, it would be called the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).
"By 1915, Round Table Groups existed in seven countries, including England...(and) the United States.... Since 1925, there have been substantial contributions from wealthy individuals, and from foundations and firms associated with the international banking fraternity, especially... organizations associated with J. P. Morgan, the Rockefeller and Whitney families...."
That same year, President Wilson signed the Federal Reserve Act with the guidance of Frank Vanderlip, president of Rockefeller’s National City Bank
To build the envisioned network of global support, it would spend tens of millions of dollars annually from the major tax-exempt foundations such as the Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations.
"...the real menace of our republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, State and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of self-created screen. It seizes in its long and powerful tentacles our executive officers, our legislative bodies, our schools, our courts, our newspapers and every agency created for the public protection."
"The argument that the two [political] parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."
"One of Professor Quigley's most shocking revelations," wrote Dr. Monteith,

"was the fact that the American Communist Party was partly financed by J. P. Morgan and Company.... J. P. Morgan and his associates financed the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, conservative groups, liberal organizations, communist groups and anti-communist organizations. Thus we should not be surprised to learn that someone purchased Professor Quigley's publisher and destroyed the plates to the first half of his book so it couldn't be reprinted."
That sounds like communitarianism
"The powers of financial capitalism has another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole...
Each central bank... sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards...."
"In 1924, the chairman of the board of the Midland Bank said, "...banks can and do create money... And they, who control the credit of the nation, direct the policy of Government and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people."
How much debt do we have?
"During the early decades of the 20th century," explained Dr. Monteith, "the three largest banks in the US were owned by the Rockefellers, the Morgan's, and the Mellon's." Contrary to popular speculations, the powerful European central banks preceded the House of Rothschild. Jewish banks "never controlled the financial institutions of the world."
We all know that our State Department, the Pentagon, and the White House have brazenly proclaimed that they have the right and the power to manage the news, to tell us not the truth but what they want us to believe. They have seized that power on orders from their masters of the great conspiracy and the objective is to brainwash the people into accepting the phony peace bait to transform the United States into an enslaved unit

ARE THE AGING ELITE “FEASTING ON YOUNG BLOOD”? ROCKEFELLER RESEARCH ADVANCED ETERNAL QUEST
Some of the wealthiest foundations on the planet have sponsored on-going research that dates back to the 1950s where-in scientists attempted to transfuse the vital, healthy blood of young individuals into older, and more fatigued recipients.

And apparently, it has demonstrated considerable positive effects – at least in lab studies with mice.
spending tens of thousands of dollars for the procedures and young-person-blood, and repeating the exercise several times a year,” Bercovici reported.
For instance, a 1943 report from the Rockefeller Foundation discusses their involvement with “mining blood” for its qualities, both known and unknown:

“Thus, what started as an inquiry into the practicability of using animal plasma as a blood substitute for transfusion purposes, has developed into a program of “mining” blood for its individual substances and for testing these concentrates for therapeutic and prophylactic use.

Knowledge gained in a laboratory devoted wholly to problems of pure science has been turned quickly and effectively to meet immediate human needs…”

The Rockefeller Foundation and just a few other key foundations have dominated the restructuring of scientific research, and the funding and direction of research and development.

More quietly, they have also been responsible for suppressing many cures and breakthroughs that did not meet their agenda. Those fruits have been enjoyed behind the veil, if at all.
• Clive McCay, a biochemist and gerontologist at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, was the first to apply parabiosis to the study of ageing. In 1956, his team joined 69 pairs of rats, almost all of differing ages3. The linked rats included a 1.5-month-old paired with a 16-month-old — the equivalent of pairing a 5-year-old human with a 47-year-old. It was not a pretty experiment.

Outreach initiatives target ... educators, students; religious and congregational leaders, state and local officials, and nonprofit, civic, and community leaders.

He was among those mentioned to succeed David Rockefeller as President of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Allison coined the phrase "Thucydides Trap" to refer to when a rising power causes fear in an established power which escalates toward war.
Allison attributes such viewpoints to the dominance of economists such as Milton Friedman, statesmen such as Robert McNamara and Henry Kissinger, disciplines such as game theory, and organizations such as the RAND Corporation.
It must be noted, however, that an imaginative analyst can construct an account of value-maximizing choice for any action or set of actions performed by a government
Also, Allison notes that "rational" analysts must ignore a lot of facts in order to make their analysis fit their models.

RAND Corporation is an American nonprofit global policy think tank originally formed by Douglas Aircraft Company to offer research and analysis to the United States Armed Forces.
RAND Corporation ("Research and development")
Michael D. Rich is president and chief executive officer of the RAND Corporation.
Its American locations include: Santa Monica, California (headquarters); Arlington, Virginia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; the San Francisco Bay Area; and Boston, Massachusetts
The RAND Gulf States Policy Institute has an office in New Orleans, Louisiana. RAND Europe is located in Cambridge, United Kingdom, and Brussels, Belgium
RAND Australia is located in Canberra, Australia
RAND publishes the RAND Journal of Economics, a peer-reviewed journal of economics.
General Henry H. Arnold, commander of the United States Army Air Forces, established Project RAND with the objective of looking into long-range planning of future weapons.
In March 1946 Douglas Aircraft Company was granted the contract to research on intercontinental warfare by adopting operations research. In May 1946 the Preliminary Design of an Experimental World-Circling Spaceship was released.
In May 1948, Project RAND separated from Douglas and became an independent non-profit organization as Douglas Aircraft feared it would create conflicts of interest jeopardizing future hardware contracts. Initial capital for the split was provided by the Ford Foundation
RAND was created after individuals in the War Department, the Office of Scientific Research and Development, and industry began to discuss the need for a private organization to connect military planning with research and development decisions
mutually assured destruction (MAD), developed under the guidance of then-Defense Secretary Robert McNamara
and based upon their work with game theory
Chief strategist Herman Kahn also posited the idea of a "winnable" nuclear exchange in his 1960 book On Thermonuclear War. This led to Kahn being one of the models for the titular character of the film Dr. Strangelove, in which RAND is spoofed as the "BLAND Corporation"
Important contributions are claimed in space systems and the United States' space program, in computing and in artificial intelligence
RAND also contributed to the development and use of wargaming.

RAND, a shadowy think tank in Santa Monica, California.
the military fell in love with RAND.
RAND began consulting on everything from propeller turbines to missile defense.
RAND bragged about its intellectual genealogy, tracing a direct line from its president, Frank Collbohm, to Isaac Newton. Whether or not that claim was true, the institute secured a reputation as the place to dream up new ways to wage wars and keep enemies at bay.
Pravda nicknamed RAND "the academy of science and death and destruction." American outfits preferred to call them the "wizards of Armageddon."
In 1957, the Air Force hired the think tank to create spy satellites. Within two years, it developed CORONA—a covert system that aimed to send camera-carrying satellites into orbit on the backs of missiles.
CORONA became the backbone of American intelligence on the Soviet Union. Researchers watched troops march along the Russian border with China and spied on cities they'd never seen before. They could even count the fruit in Soviet orchards and analyze their crops.
By the early 1960s, RAND had established itself as a fixture of U.S. policy. Branching out from straight rocket science, the think tank had become the center of the nation's nuclear strategy.
One high-profile RAND genius, John Williams, developed game theory to predict how the cagey Soviet Union might act during conflict.

Through the years, RAND's sphere of influence became more visible. In the 1960s, Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara hired scores of its young researchers—dubbed the "Whiz Kids"—to reorganize the Pentagon.
Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb in 1964. The movie's title character, a deranged Nazi scientist, was modeled after RAND's eccentric Herman Kahn.
Kahn's apocalyptic scenarios didn't end there. He also dreamed up the Doomsday Machine, a device that could destroy all life on Earth, which Kubrick used in Dr. Strangelove
the creation of a worldwide packet-switching system was left to the Pentagon, which devised ARPANET, the predecessor to the Internet.
Nixon tapped RAND for ideas
50 percent of RAND's current $223 million budget still comes from federal funding
RAND did establish the discipline of studying terrorism in the 1970s, long before the United Nations even had a working definition for the word
John Nash "“ RAND was the motherland of game theory during the 1950s and 1960s, and among its most prominent players was John Nash—the soulful subject of the book and movie A Beautiful Mind. Nash came up with what is now called the Nash equilibrium, which is used to determine the stability of competition.
Thomas Schelling "“ Schelling was an economist who came to RAND shortly after Nash's frenzied departure. His game theory concocted a worldview of aggression and counter-aggression that was heavily influential during the Vietnam War.
n Ford Foundation became a major player(edited)
The interlocks between the trustees at Rand, and the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie foundations were so numerous that the Reece Committee listed them in its report (two each for Carnegie and Rockefeller, and three for Ford). Ford gave one million dollars to Rand in 1952 alone, at a time when the chairman of Rand was simultaneously the president of Ford Foundation

ZeroTrilateralComission - Last Monday at 4:02 PM
ohn Lewis Gaddis's assessment in his book, The Cold War: A New History, that, in promoting the interests of the Air Force, RAND concocted an "unnecessary Cold War" that gave the dying Soviet empire an extra 30 years of life.
RAND was a free-standing division within the Douglas Aircraft Company which, after 1967, merged with McDonnell Aviation to form the McDonnell-Douglas Aircraft Corporation and, after 1997, was absorbed by Boeing. Its first head was Franklin R. Collbohm, a Douglas engineer and test pilot
Most RAND analyses were formal, deductive, and mathematical but rarely based on concrete research into actually functioning societies. RAND never devoted itself to the ethnographic and linguistic knowledge necessary to do truly empirical research on societies that its administrators and researchers, in any case, thought they already understood.
AND's research conclusions on the Third World, limited war, and counterinsurgency during the Vietnam War were notably wrong-headed. It argued that the United States should support "military modernization" in underdeveloped countries, that military takeovers and military rule were good things, that we could work with military officers in other countries, where democracy was best honored in the breach. The result was that virtually every government in East Asia during the 1960s and 1970s was a U.S.-backed military dictatorship, including South Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Taiwan.
RAND researchers tended to lump all human motives under what the Canadian political scientist C. B. Macpherson called "possessive individualism" and not to analyze them further. Therefore, they often misunderstood mass political movements, failing to appreciate the strength of organizations like the Vietcong and its resistance to the RAND-conceived Vietnam War strategy of "escalated" bombing of military and civilian targets.
RAND debate on the nature of the Soviet Union or on the validity of existing American policies to contain it. RANDites took their cues from the military's top echelons.
skewed toward mathematical economists rather than people with historical knowledge or extensive experience in other countries
Other major figures were Bruno Augenstein who, according to Abella, made what is "arguably RAND's greatest known -- which is to say declassified -- contribution to American national security: ... the development of the ICBM as a weapon of war"

This entry is a pile of worthless PR shit. It seems the vigilant editing by the RAND Corporation's in-house flunkeys can't be stopped, there are too many of them and they have more riding on it than we do, so I move to flag it for everything under the sun and protect the tags.
Blatant PR
RAND originally meant Research And No Development.
ou cannot claim all the achievements of people (in particular university professors) who've been technical consultants to RAND at some point as achievement of RAND. For instance indicating that RAND (or its researchers) have invented game theory is rather ridiculous, game theory was around before RAND even existed.
The same is true for linear programming, which was used in WW2.
Should someone mention that they're evil and conservative and run the world along with international zionist protocols of the ancient floppy disk? 'Coz that's sort of a "fun fact" about RAND...—Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.169.5.26 (talk • contribs)

HR1995 is RAND https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/110/hr1955/text
GovTrack.us

We're really not even going to say it's 'conservative', out of sheer terror of the dreaded 'PoV'? Surely 'conservative' is innocent enough. I agree with Bananafish that the corporate twaddle is unacceptable: the entire section seems to be sourced almost exclusively from Rand's own bumf, and that won't do.
I think the explanation of the origin of the name "RAND" in the article is incorrect. It is often stated as Research ANd Development
Although it is true that ctrl-f for "acro" finds zero results in the current version as of this writing, the first 5 words of the article are "RAND Corporation (Research ANd Development)". :wink:
Also similar to RAND, but in the United States, also, are the MITRE Corporation and the MIT Lincoln Laboratories.

senior RAND economist supporting a militaristic philosophy of U.S. foreign policy
Game theory was studied and promoted by the RAND Corporation as a way to model human behavior and
influence government policy. As noted in The Trap,
when RAND's analysts tried the games on their own secretaries, they disobeyed the ground rules that
they should behave selfishly and try to outwit their opponents, choosing to co-operate every time.
This did not, in the eyes of the analysts, discredit the theory, but instead proved that the
secretaries were unfit subjects.
the Rand Corporation was responsible for inventing the Missile gap and denying that it was false

History
I can't find ANY mention of Rand's heavy involvement with US strategic policy in the 1950s-1970s, which is REALLY REALLY disturbing because they basically defined nuclear policy for that era. Rand CAME UP WITH mutually assured destruction, and yet there is nary a mention here. History_of_nuclear_weapons. This makes me suspicious of corporate whitewashing.
Why does this article read like a public relations blurb for a cosmetics firm? We are talking about one of the leading progenitors of military activity (war)
RAND's greatest triumphs were the war in Iraq and the economic policies of the Bush administration. Now both are in ruins. But for the foreseeable future we will live with the consequences of RAND’s thinking, just as we have for the past 60 years
The company's role in the torture of enemy combatants in Vietnam
Also there is nothing here about the Pentagon Papers (except connecting them with Ellsberg), the escalation of the Vietnam war & Rand's involvement in SE Asia, support for military juntas in general. Rand Corp's role in influencing the arms race, the spawning of the Hudson Institute... Introducing any of these topics each of which is germane to any historical look at the Rand Corporation would elicit some critical analysis
Eisenhower's famous warning about the military-industrial complex was said to have stemmed from this disagreement with people in RAND.
The Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) was another idea that came out of RAND
RMA doctrines would allow the United States to sweep over the Iraqi forces in the Iraq War.

“We’re all the bastard children of RAND and we don’t even know it,” remarks Abella, as he charts how RAND started off as an organization centered around building new weapons for the military but ultimately expanded into politics, science, history and economics and was closely allied with the Ford, Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations. RAND’s decision in the 50’s to re-model the globe towards a new world order changed everything, with the development of “rational choice theory,” which turned people from being citizens into consumers, as rights and responsibilities were replaced with choices and people’s lives slowly came to be dominated not by integrity or what they stood for, but by what they spent their money on.

RAND’s ultimate goal was to have technocrats running every aspect of society in pursuit of a one world government that would be administered under “the rule of reason,” a ruthless world where efficiency was king and men were little more than machines, which is why RAND studied the social sciences because they were at a loss to work out how to deal with people and how human beings did not always act in their own predictable self-interests. There is no place for love, empathy or selflessness in the new world order that RAND and the Ford Foundation are working to create, and patriotism and altruism are adversarial to their aims.
promoting nuking the entirety of Eastern Europe as well as China in case of problems in Western Europe, a policy that could easily have sparked off a catastrophic nuclear holocaust. RAND researchers believed that as long as 10
Millioin lived the war was won
John Williams advocated pre-emptive nuclear strikes on the Soviet Union, to make sure the United States would be the only country with the supreme power to impose its will on the rest of the world.
Gulf of Tonkin attack and the planned Operation Northwoods false flag were both initially proposed in RAND documents
, highlighting the total immorality with which RAND war games its scenarios, many of which are ethically repugnant in that they nonchalantly promote the genocide of entire populations with little regard for the consequences.
RAND truly is a shadow government because it serves as a revolving door between the two, and how RAND is the cradle of the military-industrial complex and the birthplace of the technocratic elite that we are now fighting against.

A comprehensive unknown threat detection experiment is proposed to quantify a classifier’s ability to detect previously unseen threats."

Skunk Works is an official pseudonym for Lockheed Martin's Advanced Development Programs (ADP)
SR-71 Blackbird, the Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, and the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II,
"Skunk Works" was taken from the moonshine factory in the comic strip Li'l Abner.
The designation "skunk works" or "skunkworks" is widely used in business, engineering, and technical fields to describe a group within an organization given a high degree of autonomy and unhampered by bureaucracy, with the task of working on advanced or secret projects.
In 1955, the Skunk Works received a contract from the CIA to build a spyplane known as the U-2 with the intention of flying over the Soviet Union and photographing sites of strategic interest.
The D-21 drone, similar in design to the Blackbird, was built to overfly the Lop Nur nuclear test facility in China
Kelly Johnson headed the Skunk Works until 1975. He was succeeded by Ben Rich.

On July 3, 2013, Lockheed Martin announced that it was partnering with DreamHammer to use the company's software for integrated command and control of its unmanned aerial vehicles.
On March 3, 2012, the U.S. Justice Department said that Lockheed Martin had agreed to settle allegations that the defense contractor had sold overpriced perishable tools used on many contracts. The DoJ said the allegations were based specifically on the subsidiary Tools & Metals Inc's inflation of costs between 1998 and 2005, which Lockheed Martin then passed on to the U.S. government under its contracts. Further, in March 2006, Todd B. Loftis, a former TMI president, was sentenced to 87 months in prison and ordered to pay a fine of $20 million following his guilty plea
On February 20, 2013, Lockheed Martin Corp complied with the U.S. District Court in New York, agreeing to pay a $19.5 million lawsuit to conclude a securities fraud class-action legal battle that had accused the company of deceiving shareholders in regards to expectations for the company's information technology division.

On December 20, 2014, Lockheed Martin Integrated Systems agreed to settle a False Claims Act lawsuit paying $27.5 million to finalize allegations that it had knowingly overbilled the taxpayer for work performed by company staff who did not hold the relevant, essential qualifications for the contract
In 2013, Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan criticized the company's F-35 fighter jet program. The general said: "I want them both to start behaving like they want to be around for 40 years...I want them to take on some of the risk of this program. I want them to invest in cost reductions. I want them to do the things that will build a better relationship. I'm not getting all that love yet." The criticism comes in the wake of previous criticism from former Defense Secretary Robert Gates regarding the same program
Lockheed Martin received $36 billion in government contracts in 2008 alone, more than any company in history.

On April 4, 1975, a C-5A aircraft operated by the United States Air Force and manufactured by petitioner Lockheed Aircraft Corp. crashed near Saigon, South Vietnam. 1 Almost 150 people died in the crash, including Ann Nash Bottorff, a civilian employee of the United States Navy. The United States paid death benefits to Bottorff's survivors under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act
The crash occurred during a mission to evacuate over 250 orphans from Vietnam shortly before the fall of Saigon. The incident is discussed in greater detail in Schneider v. Lockheed Aircraft Corp., 212 U.S. App. D.C. 87, 90-91, 658 F.2d 835, 838-839 (1981) (per curiam), cert. denied, 455 U.S. 994
In this case, the parties have agreed that the Government will pay only a part of Lockheed's settlement with Bottorff. See App. 105-106; Brief for United States 4, and n. 4. The agreement establishing the proportion the Government will pay was filed under seal in the District Court.

Rep. Kay Granger of Fort Worth occupies a powerful seat on the defense appropriations subcommittee.

Granger received $125,300 in campaign contributions from Lockheed during the 2016 election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
“NATO members are considering the shifts of U.S. priorities, and many see a great need to shoulder more of their own defense burdens,” she said. “This is significant. In fact, if NATO members fulfill their own stated pledges to spend 2 percent of their GDP on defense, it could result in a $100 billion increase in spending across the alliance.”
Lockheed may have significant business to gain from this spending boost. In 2016, more than 40 percent of the company’s business — more than $12.7 billion — came from international customers, Hewson said.

Israel is surrounded by CENTCOM countries
On 7 February 2007, plans were announced for the creation of a United States Africa Command which transferred strategic interest responsibility for all of Africa to the new USAFRICOM, except for Egypt


ZeroLockheed - Today at 1:41 AM
USCENTCOM mission is to direct and enable military operations
The CENTCOM Area of Responsibility (AOR) includes countries in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, most notably Afghanistan and Iraq
Of all six American regional unified combatant commands, CENTCOM is among the three with headquarters outside its area of operations (the other two being USAFRICOM and USSOUTHCOM). CENTCOM's main headquarters is located at MacDill Air Force Base, in Tampa, Florida. A forward headquarters was established in 2002 at Camp As Sayliyah in Doha, Qatar, which in 2009 transitioned to a forward headquarters at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.
established on January 1, 1983
"central" area of the globe located between the European and Pacific Commands. When the hostage crisis in Iran and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan underlined the need to strengthen U.S. interests in the region, President Jimmy Carter established the Rapid Deployment Joint Task Force (RDJTF) in March 1980. Steps were taken to transform the RDJTF into a permanent unified command over a two-year period
The first step was to make the RDJTF independent of U.S. Readiness Command, followed by the activation of CENTCOM in January 1983. Overcoming skeptical perceptions that the command was still an RDJTF in all but name, designed to support a Cold War strategy, took time.
Operation Provide Comfort, implemented to provide humanitarian assistance to the Kurds and enforce a "no-fly" zone in Iraq, north of the 36th parallel, began in April 1991.
no fly zone creates war bc it needs troops to maintain
Operation Northern Watch replaced Provide Comfort, with a focus on enforcing the northern no-fly zone
From April to July 1999, CENTCOM conducted Exercise Desert Crossing 1999, centered on the scenario of Saddam Hussein being ousted as Iraq’s dictator. It was held in the offices of Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, Virginia.:6–7 The exercise concluded that unless measures were taken, “fragmentation and chaos” would ensue after Saddam Hussein's overthrow.
Special Operations Forces raids
In July 2015, 50 CENTCOM military analysts signed on to a classified complaint to the Pentagon's Inspector General that their intelligence reports were being inappropriately manipulated by members of CENTCOM. They were subsequently joined by civilian and Defense Intelligence Agency analysts working for CENTCOM. Members of the groups began anonymously leaking details of the case to the press in late-August
US Central Command attempted to portray a rosy image of the fight against the Islamic State by altering some reports to seem more positive, while burying other reports to keep them from the press and Congress
The analysts specifically alleged that the conclusions of both their reports about the readiness of indigenous forces to face ISIS, and about the effectiveness of the American air campaigns over Syria and Iraq, were completely reversed by the Administration before distribution(edited)

What matters is not past mistakes but future opportunities. This describes the view of General Joseph Votel, current head of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM)
bland language and penchant for deceptive euphemisms.
To say that a military officer presiding over an AOR plans and conducts operations is a bit like saying that Jeff Bezos sells books.
To command CENTCOM is to function as a proconsul, to inhabit as a co-equal the rarified realm of kings, presidents, and prime ministers. CENTCOM commanders shape the future of their AOR ― or at least fancy that they do.
In that sense, the term represents the latest incarnation of the informal empire that American elites have pursued in various forms ever since U.S. forces “liberated” Cuba in 1898
For CENTCOM, history is a record of events selected and arranged to demonstrate progress.
Setbacks, disappointments, miscalculations, humiliations: you won’t hear about them from CENTCOM.
Like Broadway’s Annie, down at headquarters in Tampa they’re “just thinkin’ about tomorrow,” which “clears away the cobwebs, and the sorrow, till there’s none!”
Give the Vietnam War the CENTCOM treatment and you would end up with something like this: “Responding to unprovoked North Vietnamese attacks and acting at the behest of the international community, a U.S.-led coalition arrived to provide security to the freely-elected South Vietnamese government, conducting counterinsurgency operations and assisting host nation security forces to provide for their own defense.”)
, CENTCOM “has continued to provide security to the new freely-elected governments” of Afghanistan and Iraq whitewashes history in ways that would cause the most shameless purveyor of alt-facts on Fox News to blush.
Rather than providing security, CENTCOM has undermined it.
American military professionals prized brevity and directness in their writing. Not so the present generation of generals who are given to logorrhea.
it’s the movie Groundhog Day transposed from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, to Tampa and then to Afghanistan, Iraq, and other countries where the bodies continue to pile up.

Bullshit is everywhere


What the CENTCOM commander says matters less than what CENTCOM forces do. What they are doing is waging an endless war of attrition.
Serial disappointments leave intact the conviction that persistence will ultimately produce a happy ending.

They employ language that suggests discrimination, deliberation, precision, and control as the qualities that define the American way of war. They steer clear of using terms like attrition.

CENTCOM is clueless because the United States doesn't have a clue about what to do in the Middle East. U.S. Central Command—part warfighter, part cheerleader; part Nate Silver and part Mister Magoo—is overwhelmed by more than a half dozen conflicts, a buffeted and overwhelmed jack-of-all-trades that everyone relies on and yet doesn't really have the brainpower to do the job
It would indeed be inspiring if the command followed some dogged path toward improving security or reducing the carnage. But all of this evidence indicates it is just unfocused and cliched; preparing to prepare, fighting to make and remake maps, and announcing progress on the way to nowhere.
The ISIS intel scandal is 'directly at the heart of Central Command'
top military officials have pressured intelligence analysts into conforming their reports to a more positive narrative of the fight against the militant group ISIS
"Gen. Sanchez is now in charge of overall operations, paying close attention to big-picture items, such as working out relations between the new civilian government and its security forces, and the American military. Gen. Metz is the No. 2 officer, running day-to-day operations.

"And the two-star is Maj. Gen. David Petraeus. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld brought the 101st Airborne Division commander back to Iraq to overhaul the flawed training of Iraqi police, army and civil defense corps units.

"All three generals report to Gen. John P. Abizaid, chief of U.S. Central Command."
United States Air Forces Central Command is the air component of United States Central Command, a regional unified command. USAFCENT is responsible for air operations (either unilaterally or in concert with coalition partners) and developing contingency plans in support of national objectives for USCENTCOM's 20-nation area of responsibility in Southwest Asia. Additionally, USAFCENT manages an extensive supply and equipment-prepositioning program at several AOR sites.

It conducts overt and covert illegal regime change operations based on deceit and lies. The members don't serve the interests of the American people. Its presence in Syria is completely illegal and against international law. It violates international law and gets away with it because the fake news media covers for them. It is responsible for the destruction of Iraq and Libya, illegal wars.
I saw few posts today about the USA dropping white phosphorus bombs on civilian areas in Raqqa Syria .. the comments on those posts : made by American men ( most of them in the army or navy ) just made me sick to my stomach .. Burn baby burn ! Shake and bake ! What a beautiful sight ! Looks like 4th of July fireworks ! Let it rain fire ! ... well , my apologies in advance to all my descent American friends here , but I have to say this to any American celebrating their governments war crimes : You trailer trash Yankee Doodle bastards , with no culture , brains , dignity or class!

Mattis' father moved to Richland, Washington to work at a plant supplying fissile material to the Manhattan Project
"You know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know, it's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot some people."
In July, he was recommended by Defense Secretary Robert Gates for nomination to replace David Petraeus as commander of United States Central Command,
He took command at a ceremony at MacDill Air Force Base on August 11
he was perceived to be too eager for a military confrontation with Iran
o served as a member of the General Dynamics Board of Directors
ZeroWarPigs - Today at 6:00 PM
Mattis was a board member of the Silicon Valley biotech company Theranos
Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes asked Mattis, who had expressed interest in testing Theranos's technology in combat areas, to help. Within hours, Mattis forwarded his email exchange with Holmes to military officials, asking "how do we overcome this new obstacle." In a July 2013 letter from the Department of Defense approving his possible employment by Theranos, Mattis was given permission with conditions. He was cautioned to do so only if he did not represent Theranos with regard to the blood testing device and its potential acquisition by the Departments of the Navy or Defense.
Mattis, in a January 2017 phone call with Saudi Arabia's deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, "reaffirmed the importance of the U.S.–Saudi Arabia strategic relationship"
June 3, Mattis said the United States regarded North Korea as "clear and present danger" during a speech at the international security conference in Singapore
Mattis ha.s voiced support for a Saudi Arabian–led military campaign against Yemen's Shiite rebel

Mattis stated that the Obama administration "may have pulled our troops out too rapidly"
Mattis believes that Iran is the principal threat to the stability of the Middle East
Mattis argued for providing weapons to Syrian rebels, as a way to fight back against Iranian proxies in Syria.

Look at all the weapons the US gave to ISIS !


Speaking at a conference sponsored by The Heritage Foundation in Washington in 2015 Mattis stated that he believed that Russian President Vladimir Putin's intent is "to break NATO apart.
criticized China's island-building activities, saying: "The bottom line is ... the international waters are international waters."

Mattis was endorsed by Henry Kissinger
Yemen raid, it launched a series of operations on a scale rarely seen in the Obama years. It stepped up air strikes in Iraq and Syria, killing many Islamic militants but also hundreds of civilians.
He wants to kick ass
He rarely drinks and has little in the way of a social life(edited)
In Iraq, his radio call sign was Chaos.
I saw a poster on the wall quoting Mattis’s advice on how to succeed in Iraq: “Be polite, be professional, but always have a plan to kill everyone you meet.”
Mattis was in charge of four regiments—about twenty-five thousand marines.
Dowdy said that he’d grown up in a one-parent family, and he didn’t want his men’s children to lose their fathers for no good reason. With that, Mattis said that he was replacing him. Dowdy pleaded with him to reconsider, reminding Mattis of a principle that he often preached: the man on the ground knows best. But Mattis said it was too late, that he needed to “go away.”
The former American general I spoke with agreed: “We didn’t have enough boots on the ground.” As the American military raced through the Iraqi heartland, it left an opening for a violent insurgency, which took nearly eight years to subdue.
