A DOD whistleblower detail an attempt by a covert
U.S. team to plant weapons of mass destruction in
Iraq. The team was later killed by friendly fire due
to CIA incompetence. Pentagon Whistleblower
Reveals CIA/ DoD Fiascos 20.06.2003 [08:07]

In a world exclusive, Al Martin Raw.com has published
a news story about a Department of Defense
whistleblower who has revealed that a US covert
operations team had planted "Weapons of Mass
Destruction" (WMDs) in Iraq -then "lost" them when
the team was killed by so-called "friendly fire."

The Pentagon whistleblower, Nelda Rogers, is a
28-year veteran debriefer for the Defense Department.
She has become so concerned for her safety that she
decided to tell the story about this latest CIA-military
fiasco in
Iraq.

According to Al Martin Raw.com, "Ms.Rogers is
number two in the chain of command within this DoD
special intelligence office. This is a ten-person
debriefing unit within the central debriefing office for
the Department of Defense.

The information that is being leaked out is information
"obtained while she was in
Germany heading up the
debriefing of returning service personnel, involved in
intelligence work in
Iraq for the Department of Defense
and/or the Central Intelligence Agency.

"According to Ms. Rogers, there was a covert military
operation that took place both preceding and during
the hostilities in
Iraq," reports Al Martin Raw.com, an
online subscriber-based news/analysis service which
provides "Political, Economic and Financial
Intelligence."

Al Martin is a retired Lt. Commander (US Navy),
the author of a memoir called "The Conspirators:
Secrets of an Iran Contra Insider, " and he is
considered one of
America's foremost experts on
corporate and government fraud.

Ms. Rogers reports that this particular covert
operation team was manned by ex-military personnel
and that "the unit was paid through the Department of
Agriculture in order to hide it, which is also very
commonplace."

According to Al Martin Raw.com, "the Ag Department
has often been used as a paymaster on behalf of the
CIA, DIA, and NSA and others."

Accordng to the Al Martin Raw.com story, another
aspect of Ms. Rogers' report concerns a covert
operation which was to locate the assets of Saddam
Hussein and his family, including cash, gold bullion,
jewelry and assorted valuable antiquities.

The problem became evident when "the operation
in
Iraq involved 100 people, all of whom apparently
are now dead, having succumbed to so-called
'friendly fire.' The scope of this operation included
the penetration of the Central Bank of
Iraq, other
large commercial banks in
Baghdad, the Iraqi
National Museum
and certain presidential palaces
where monies and bullion were secreted."

"They identified about $2 billion of cash in US
dollars, another $150 million in Euros, in physical
banknotes, and about another $100 million in
sundry foreign currencies ranging from Yen to
British Pounds," reports Al Martin.

"These people died, mostly in the same place in
Baghdad, supposedly from a stray cruise missile
or a combination of missiles and bombs that went
astray," Martin continues. "There were supposedly
76 who died there and the other 24 died through a
variety of 'friendly fire,' 'mistaken identity,' and
some of them - their whereabouts are simply
unknown."

Ms. Rogers' story sound like an updated 21st
Century version of
Treasure Island meets Ali Baba
and the Bush Cabal Thieves, writes Martin.

"This was a contingent of CIA/ DoD operatives, but
it was really the CIAthat bungled it, Ms. Rogers said.
They were relying on the CIA's ability toorganize an
effort to seize these assets and to be able to extract
these assets because the CIA claimed it had
resources on the ground within the Iraqi army and the
Iraqi government who had been paid. That turned out
to be completely bogus. As usual."

"
CIA people were supposed to be handling it," Martin
continues. "They had a special 'black (unmarked)
aircraft to fly it out. But none of that happened because
the regular US Army showed up, stumbled onto it and
everyone involved had to scramble.

These new Iraqi "Asset Seizures" go directly to the
New US Ruling Junta. The US Viceroy in Iraq Paul
Bremer is reportedly drinking Saddam Hussein's
$2000 a bottle Napoleon era brandy, smoking his
expensive Davidoff cigars and hehas even
furnished his Baghdad office with Saddam's
Napolean era antique furniture

The Iraq Debacle Du Jour has evidently been
extensively documented by the DIA debriefing
teams with "extensive tape recordings of
interviews with the Iraqi returnees, the
covert operatives (as well as their affidavits)."

Al Martin Raw.com has dubbed this "Operation
Skim
Iraq."
