The city's officer of emergency management plans to start the training exercise at Buckley Air Force Base some time after 5 p.m.
After a loud "boom," emergency responders will race to the base and could impact traffic. Military helicopters will fly "pretend" victims of a terrorist attack to the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.
The drill is a test of how well civilian and military responders work together in an emergency.
"This is the largest thing I've every done, so there's over 40 agencies in involved. We anticipate that there's over 500 responders as well as over 200 volunteers that are gonna be playing our victims," Deanne Criswell with the Officer of Emergency Management said.
Aurora's 911 operators are prepared to answer calls about the emergency drill. The city will also have recorded information about it on its phone lines and on its Web site. Click here for more information.

America’s spy chief was sent on a secret mission to Israel to warn its leaders not to launch a surprise attack on Iran without notifying the US Administration.
As Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, prepares to visit Washington, it emerged yesterday that Leon Panetta, the head of the CIA, went to Israel two weeks ago. He sought assurances from Mr Netanyahu and Ehud Barak, the Defence Minister, that their hawkish new Government would not attack Iran without alerting Washington.
Concerns have been rising that Mr Netanyahu could launch a strike on Tehran’s atomic programme, in the same way that Israel hit Saddam Hussein’s Osirak reactor in 1981. Israel has been preparing for such an eventuality. It has carried out long-distance manoeuvres and is due to hold its largest civil defence drills this summer. The country’s leaders reportedly told Mr Panetta that they did not “intend to surprise the US on Iran”.
Mr Netanyahu will leave for Washington this weekend. He will meet Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State, and Mr Obama, whom he will try to convince of the need for tougher action against Iran. Mr Obama favours trying to engage Tehran, but his efforts have been received coolly by President Ahmadinejad.
The Israeli leader is expected to insist that the US stays focused on Iran, rather than tackling stalled talks with the Palestinians.
Mr Netanyahu has held meetings with Arab leaders this week, including President Mubarak of Egypt and King Abdullah of Jordan. Both Sunni leaders share Israel’s fears of a resurgent Shia Iran.
In Aqaba, Jordan, yesterday King Abdullah told Mr Netanyahu there could be no regional peace without a Palestinian state. So far Mr Netanyahu has refused to commit to a two-state solution. Instead, he has talked about developing the Palestinian economy, with Palestinians having only limited sovereignty. That view is likely to cause confrontation with Mr Obama.
Mr Netanyahu raised the issue of Iran during a private meeting with Pope Benedict XVI in Nazareth yesterday. “I asked him as a moral figure to make his voice heard loud and continuously against the declarations coming from Iran of their intention to destroy Israel,” he said. .
“I think we found in him an attentive ear.” The Pope, who reiterated his calls for peace yesterday, did not give an account of the meeting.
A new study has found the air in Madrid and Barcelona is also laced with at least five drugs - most prominently cocaine.
The Superior Council of Scientific Investigations, a government institute, said on its website that in addition to cocaine, it found trace amounts of amphetamines, opiates, cannabinoids and lysergic acid -a relative of LSD - in air-quality control stations in the cities.
But it said there was no reason for alarm.
"Not even if we lived for a thousand years would we consume the equivalent of a dose of cocaine by breathing this air," said one of its scientists, Miren Lopez de Alda, in the statement.
The scientific group added that "in no case should these levels be considered representative of the air in the two cities".
In Madrid the test site was close to a ruined building believed to be frequented by drug dealers. And in both Madrid and Barcelona, the studies were carried out close to universities.
The group also said that the study showed higher concentrations of the components on weekends, suggesting that drug consumption was up in these periods.
Trouble is, they forgot to delete the name of the lobbying group involved in the letter from the document.
Attached to the email message they circulated when seeking signatures from other members of Congress was the document, titled, “AIPAC Letter Hoyer Cantor May 2009.pdf.”
AIPAC stands for the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, a powerful bipartisan pro-Israel lobbying group. Recently, the group found itself in the news over allegations that two former staff members were involved in espionage — though the Justice Department recently dropped the case against them and no wrongdoing was alleged against the group itself.
The file name flub was discovered by The Washington Post’s Al Kamen in his “In the Loop” Column Friday.
The email to congressmembers seeking their support said they hoped they’d sign onto “the attached letter to President Obama regarding the Middle East peace process,” which argued that the US “must be both a trusted mediator and a devoted friend to Israel” and added, “Israel will be taking the greatest risks in any peace agreement.”
“Seems as though someone forgot to change the name or something,” Kamen quipped. “AIPAC? The American Israel Public Affairs Committee? Is that how this stuff works?”
The practice of lobbyists writing letters for congressmembers — to which they affix their names — is not uncommon. The custom was prominently in view during the scandal involving fallen power-lobbyist Jack Abramoff, whose staff were sometimes responsible for drafting letters that found themselves on congressional letterhead. Abramoff pled guilty to fraud and corruption charges in 2006.
An email to Hoyer’s press secretary was not immediately returned. The spokesperson for Cantor could not immediately be reached for comment, nor could a spokesperson for AIPAC.
The letter follows as a GIF. The PDF version can be downloaded here.

What Did Nancy Know?And other not-so-mysterious mysteries
May 15, 2009
The brouhaha over what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) knew about torture, and when she knew it, is typical of the American "debate" over the events of the past eight years — the long Bush Interregnum, when we slipped into an alternate universe, and Bizarro World ethics displaced our regular moral compass, effectively inverting traditional concepts of right and wrong. Typical in that the real issues are avoided, or not mentioned at all.
We keep hearing arguments from defenders of the administration’s "enhanced interrogation techniques" that go something like this: you have to remember that everything was different way back then, the smoke was still rising from the ruins of the World Trade Center and if you had asked the archetypal man-in-the-street if it was okay to torture the terrorists, nary a single one of them would have said no. Everyone — or so the argument goes — is forgetting what it was like.
To begin with, it doesn’t matter what the man-in-the-street believes is justifiable — quite aside from its dubious utility, torture is flat-out wrong under any and all circumstances. Period.
Yet this argument makes a valid point, albeit one that fails to justify torture: the elected leadership of the country, and much of the US population, went collectively mad in the weeks — and years — after the worst terrorist attack in American history. It isn’t at all hard to believe that Pelosi, too — being human, all too human — was swept up in the hysteria, and went along with those "enhanced interrogation techniques" without uttering a word of protest.
On the other hand, Pelosi contends — well, it’s hard to say what she contends, because her story keeps changing. First she said she knew nothing about it. Then she said she knew about the "enhanced" techniques, but only that this was an option, not that they were going to be used or had actually been used. Now she’s changed her story yet again, and is claiming that the Bush administration "misled" her, and carried out these torture sessions before she was briefed. Regardless of what shape her story takes on any particular day, what she says and what the CIA documents say can’t both be true. Somebody is fibbing, bigtime — and I don’t think it’s Leon Panetta over at the CIA.
By all means, let us have a "truth commission," as Speaker Pelosi has advocated, with one difference: it ought not to be mandated or controlled in any way by Congress — since we don’t know how many members, or which ones, are implicated in these crimes.
Instead, let an independent commission made up of professional researchers and investigators in this field, along with competent academics, hold public sessions at which the testimony of witnesses can be heard. And as long as we’re in an investigative mood, there’s plenty in the legacy of the Bush years that cries out for a vigorous probe. Here’s my own personal wish list:
Let’s investigate the "intelligence" that got us into the Iraq war — starting with the Niger uranium forgeries [.pdf]. You’ll recall the once-famous "sixteen words" uttered by Bush in the course of a speech, in which he claimed that the African nation of Niger had been the site of an attempt by Saddam Hussein to procure uranium ore. The "intelligence" behind this assertion turned out to be a very crude forgery, the provenance of which has remained a mystery to this day — although we have a few important clues. In any case, that’s not the only example of outright fraud when it comes to "evidence" of Iraqi WMD, proffered during the run-up to the invasion, only the most glaring.
Remember Ahmed Chalabi, the smooth-talking slickster and neocon hero who bamboozled us out of millions in exchange for phony "intelligence" purportedly "proving" Iraq was harboring all kinds of WMD? He disappeared for a while, after characterizing himself and his confreres as "heroes in error," and popped up months later as a possible oil minister in the new Iraqi government. Right before he disappeared, however, the CIA raided his Iraqi headquarters and stories appeared in the American media reporting that he was suspected of committing espionage against the United States: the Iranians apparently learned through Chalabi that the Americans had broken their code and were eavesdropping on the internal deliberations of the Iranian government. The Iranians changed their code, and an invaluable window on the Iranian leadership was closed. Chalabi dropped out of sight, resurfacing as putative oil minister — and that was the last we heard of the probe into Chalabi’s activities.
At one point, you’ll recall, the FBI was running lie-detector tests on Pentagon employees to determine if any of them had leaked information to Chalabi. That’s one investigation that needs to be resumed.
By the way, another possibly related investigation into Israeli spying activities in the US — the same probe that led to the indictment of Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman, two top AIPAC officials — is still ongoing. According to former DIA analyst Pat Lang, writing on his Sic Semper Tyrannis blog:
"Sources familiar with the FBI investigation of the AIPAC espionage case, say that the investigation is continuing even though the charges against Rosen and Weissman were dropped. Harman was interviewed by DoJ prosecutors after the Rosen/Weissman charges were dropped.
"Sources indicate that based on multi-agency reports of Israeli espionage activities in the US prior to 9/11, George Tenet as DCI ordered his senior staff to assemble for him a study of all the files available concerning the history of Israeli espionage activities in the US. The resulting study shocked him."
That’s one subject on which we’ll never see a congressional investigation, of that you can be sure. Fortunately, however, when it comes to all of the above topics, and more, we have a source of investigative reporting that is on the ball and on the War Party’s case. Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about Antiwar.com.
From the Niger uranium forgeries to the "Mohammed Atta in Prague" story, from the Scooter Libby case to the Rosen-Weissman-AIPAC spy nest, Antiwar.com has gone where most "mainstream" media outlets were very slow to tread. We nailed Scooter Libby from day one, and were all over the Niger uranium forgeries with reportage and detailed analysis, while the "mainstream" never covered the story in depth.
What’s important in running a news portal and commentary site such as this is that the editors know what’s going to be significant — before it becomes a big deal. A good example of our news judgment in this regard is our comprehensive coverage of the AIPAC spy scandal, the arrest and conviction of former Pentagon analyst Larry Frankliln, and the long legal process following the indictment of Rosen and Weissman — which we reported and commented on every step of the way, while the "mainstream" ignored it after the indictments went down. Our persistence paid off when Rep. Jane Harman was caught red-handed talking to "a suspected Israeli agent" offering her assistance in getting lenient treatment for Rosen and Weissman in exchange for AIPAC’s help in securing the chair of the House intelligence committee. As the Harman scandal roiled official Washington, regular readers of this site had a fuller understanding of the context in which it was occurring.
There’s a lot more going on than they want us to know — that is a given. The key to discovering it is to look behind the headlines, at the larger narrative taking shape, a method that gives our readers the real lowdown on what the War Party has in store. That’s what the spirit of independent journalism is all about, and it’s alive and well here at Antiwar.com — but only as long as our money holds out, and it’s going fast.
We depend entirely on the generosity of our readers to keep going, and our current fundraising drive is now going full-gear. I know you’ve been hectored endlessly for the past couple of days, but believe me, it’s necessary — because if we don’t make our fundraising goal, the spirit of independent journalism as represented by this web site is going to wilt considerably. So don’t delay — contribute today.

Karl Rove will be interviewed today as part of a criminal investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys during the presidency of George W. Bush, according to two sources familiar with the appointment.
Rove, a former senior aide to Bush, will be questioned by Connecticut prosecutor Nora R. Dannehy, who was named in September to examine whether former Justice Department and White House officials lied or obstructed justice in connection with the dismissal of federal prosecutors in 2006.
Robert D. Luskin, an attorney for Rove, declined to comment. Tom Carson, a spokesman for Dannehy, also declined to comment.
Dannehy has operated mostly out of the public spotlight, issuing subpoenas for documents through a federal grand jury in the District. But in recent weeks, she has interviewed other government aides, including former White House political deputies Scott Jennings and Sara Taylor.
Dannehy also has reached out to representatives of former senator Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.) and his chief of staff, Steve Bell, to determine whether New Mexico U.S. Attorney David C. Iglesias was removed improperly.
The firings were the focus of a lengthy report released last fall by the Justice Department's inspector general and the department's Office of Professional Responsibility. Investigators there uncovered improper political motivations in the dismissal of several of the nine fired federal prosecutors.
But the department's own probe was thwarted in part because its investigators did not have the authority to compel testimony from Bush White House advisers and lawmakers.
Legal experts say that a particular source of interest for Dannehy will be statements that officials made to the inspector general and to Congress about the episode, which could lead to charges of perjury or obstruction of justice. Outcry over the firings contributed to the departure of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, his chief of staff, D. Kyle Sampson, and Deputy Attorney General Paul J. McNulty.
The prosecutor firings also are the subject of intense interest from the House Judiciary Committee, which sued former Bush aides Harriet E. Miers and Joshua B. Bolten for access to testimony and documents. Rove is also tentatively scheduled to provide closed-door testimony to House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and other members of the panel next month.

Motorola, Caterpillar, Veolia, the Tesco supermarket chain, and other companies across the world that do business with Israel are suffering losses due to a global boycott in support of Palestinian rights.
The protest, organised by the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, is part of a drive to “Hang Up On Motorola” until it ends sales of communications and other products that support Israel’s military occupation of Palestinian land.
Inside the meeting, the Presbyterian, United Methodist and other churches urged shareholders to support their resolution, which calls for corporate standards grounded in international law. Doing the right thing could also reduce the risk of “consumer boycotts, divestment campaigns and lawsuits”.
Although Motorola executives deny it, such risks must have played a part in their decision to sell the department making bomb fuses shortly after Human Rights Watch teams found shrapnel with Motorola serial numbers at some of the civilian sites bombed by Israel in its December-January assault on Gaza.
The US protests are part of a growing global movement that has taken international law into its own hands because governments have not. And, especially since the attacks on Gaza, the boycotts have been biting.
There are three reasons why.
First, boycotts enable ordinary citizens to take direct action. For instance, the New York group Adalah decided to target diamond merchant Lev Leviev, whose profits are plowed into colonising the West Bank.
During the Christmas season, they sing carols with the words creatively altered to urge shoppers to boycott his Madison Avenue store.
The British group Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine teamed up with Adalah and others to exert public pressure on the British government regarding Leviev. The British Embassy in Tel Aviv recently cancelled plans to rent premises from Leviev’s company Africa-Israel.
There are other results. Activists in Britain have targeted the supermarket chain Tesco to stop the sales of Israeli goods produced in settlements.
In a video of one action — over 38,000 YouTube views to date — Welsh activists load up a trolley with settlement products and push it out of the shop without paying.
All the while, they calmly explain to the camera just what they are doing and why, as they pour red paint over the produce — and as British Bobbies quietly lead them away to a police van.
The result of such consumer boycotts? A fifth of Israeli producers have reported a drop in demand since the assault on Gaza, particularly in Britain and Scandinavia.
The second reason boycotts are effective is the visible role of Jewish human rights advocates, making it harder for Israel to argue that these actions are anti-Semitic.
For example, British architect Abe Hayeem, an Iraqi Jew, describes in a passionate column in the British Guardian exactly how Leviev tramples on Palestinian rights, and warns Israeli architects involved in settlements that they will be held to account by their international peers.
In the US, Jewish Voice for Peace has led an ongoing campaign to stop Caterpillar from selling bulldozers to Israel, which militarises them and uses them in home demolitions and building the separation wall.
The third, key, reason for the growing success of this global movement is the determined leadership of Palestinian civil society. The spark was lit at the world conference against racism in Durban in 2001. In 2004, Palestinian civil society launched an academic and cultural boycott that is having an impact.
In 2005, over 170 Palestinian civil society coalitions, organisations, and unions from the occupied territories, within Israel, and in exile issued a formal call for an international campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) until Israel abides by international law.
The call sets out clear goals for the movement and provides a framework for action.
In November 2008, Palestinian NGOs helped convene an international BDS conference in Bilbao, Spain, to adopt common actions. This launched a “Derail Veolia” campaign. The French multinational corporation, together with another French company, Alstom, is building a light railway linking East Jerusalem to illegal settlements.
The light rail project was cited by the Swedish national pension fund in its decision to exclude Alstom from its US$15 billion portfolio, and by the Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council in its decision not to further consider Veolia’s bid for a $1.9 billion waste improvement plan. There were active grassroots campaigns in both areas.
Other hits: Veolia lost the contract to operate the city of Stockholm subway and an urban network in Bordeaux. Although these were reportedly “business decisions” there were also activist campaigns in both places. The Galway city council in Ireland decided to follow Stockholm’s example.
Connex, the company that is supposed to operate the light rail, is being targeted by Australian activists.
The “Derail Veolia” campaign has been the movement’s biggest success to date. Veolia and its subsidiaries are estimated to have lost as much as $7.5 billion.
As one of the BDS movement leaders, Omar Barghouti, put it: “When companies start to lose money, then they listen”. Perhaps governments will too.

Military to use Burton as a training ground for a week
by Bryn Mickle
The Flint Journal
Wednesday May 13, 2009, 7:15 AM
BURTON, Michigan -- The black helicopter crowd's worst fears of a New World Order are coming true.
The military is invading Burton.
But it promises to only stay a week.
The U.S. Special Operations Command is using Burton as a training ground for military exercises.
Sometime over the next day or two, a military spokesman said residents may see low-flying helicopters buzzing overhead.
People may even catch a glimpse of special operations forces, but the goal is to keep the exercise as low key as possible.
"Chances are that most people won't see them," said Naval Lt. Nathan C. Potter, a spokesman for the exercises.
Citing safety and security concerns, the military is being mum on details about the exercises, including the size of the force being trained.
There's also no word on where exactly the operations will take place, although Potter said soldiers could be working in neighborhoods and industrial sites.
"It will be very sporadic," he said.
The goal is to prepare troops for unfamiliar urban areas.
Once they are finished in Burton, Potter said the soldiers will be ready to be deployed overseas.
The military approached Burton officials with the request to train there about three months ago, said Burton police Lt. Tom Osterholzer.
Although officials are being cautious about the details, Osterholzer said they opted to notify the public to allay any fears once people start seeing helicopters.
Burton and Flint police will provide traffic control for some of the exercises and 911 operators at the Flint and Genesee County dispatch centers have been alerted in case of panicked calls.
"It's an honor to help these guys," said Osterholzer.
Not everyone is as enthusiastic.
"It scares me," said Jennie Moench of Swartz Creek.
Moench questioned whether the military is getting ready for action in a new theater outside of Iraq and Pakistan and wonders why it chose Burton.
"Would you see this happening in a wealthy city?" said Moench, a member of the area Peace Triangle group that has protested the U.S. presence in Iraq for about seven years.
But Burton resident Leroy Cronkright believes the city is providing an important service to the military.
"Nowadays, almost everything (soldiers do) is cities and towns," said Cronkright, a Navy veteran who served in the 1960s.
Sonia Flagg said she would have been caught offguard by the sight of helicopters over her yard, but likes the idea.
"Somebody's got to do it, so why not Burton," said Flagg.
"Young kids will love watching the helicopters fly around and everything."
Potter said the military appreciates the local help and said such training exercises are critical to the ability of soldiers to operate overseas.
Similar operations have been run in other cities around the nation.
"We're not trying to cause a disturbance," said Potter.
Scouts To Fight Terrorism - DHS is training teenage scouts how to conduct armed raids on terrorists and drug dealers
Terrorist described as “disgruntled Iraq war veteran” in role play
Thursday, May 14, 2009
The Department of Homeland Security is training teenage scouts how to conduct armed raids on terrorists and drug dealers.
In a program which officials have described as “about being a true-blooded American”, boys and girls as young as fourteen are being put through their paces by DHS Border Patrol agents.
The New York Times Reports:
The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters.
The training, which leaders say is not intended to be applied outside the simulated Explorer setting, can involve chasing down illegal border crossers as well as more dangerous situations that include facing down terrorists and taking out “active shooters,” like those who bring gunfire and death to college campuses.
Some youngsters have described the program as enjoyable due to the fact that they get to shoot guns and learn about discipline.
Eyebrows will be raised over the nature of the role play situation however, due to the fact that in at least one instance the “terrorist” to be neutralized was described as a “disgruntled Iraq war veteran”.
“Put him on his face and put a knee in his back,” a Border Patrol agent explained. “I guarantee that he’ll shut up.”
Given recent concerns over the DHS definition of “right wing extremists” and the agency’s penchant to affiliate veterans, gun owners, Ron Paul supporters and even those who question the mainstream media with terrorists, one wonders exactly who the boy scouts are being trained to target.
The Explorer program also touches close to home with recent concerns regarding President Barack Obama’s promised “civilian national security force”.
“Our end goal is to create more agents,” said April McKee, a senior Border Patrol agent and mentor at the session.

A chilling exposé of corporate corruption and government cover-ups, this account of a nationwide child-trafficking and pedophilia ring in the United States tells a sordid tale of corruption in high places. The scandal originally surfaced during an investigation into Omaha, Nebraska's failed Franklin Federal Credit Union and took the author beyond the Midwest and ultimately to Washington, DC. Implicating businessmen, senators, major media corporations, the CIA, and even the venerable Boys Town organization, this extensively researched report includes firsthand interviews with key witnesses and explores a controversy that has received scant media attention.
