Adnan Khashoggi Linked to 9/11 Terrorists, Part 28: SPACE

By Alex Constantine

NABS, BAMBI and Space Station
Commander Rumsfeld

Walter Dornberger had a dream. The Paperclip rocket scientist and a contingent of his Nordic colleagues urged their American sponsors to head for space. Shortly after his arrival in the United States in 1947 with the assistance of the Air Force and DoD, Walter Dornberger wrote a planning paper. Karl Grossman of the Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space writes: "He projected a system of hundreds of nuclear-armed satellites all orbiting at different altitudes and angles, each capable of re-entering the atmosphere on command from earth to proceed to its target. The Air Force began early work on Dornberger's idea under the acronym NABS (Nuclear Armed Bombardment Satellites).... This concept was also taken under study by the Air Force in the 1950s. Labeled BAMBI (Ballistic Missile Boost Intercept), it was an idea that would reappear in the space-war dreams of the Reagan administration in 1983. Before a congressional hearing in 1958, Dornberger insisted that America's top space priority ought to be to 'conquer, occupy, keep, and utilize space between the earth and the moon.' In an address to a National Missile Industry Conference, he.urged that more attention be given to space weaponry."

"'Gentlemen,' he said. 'I didn't come to this country to lose the Third World War.'"1 This wasn't a rerun of Dr. Who. Dornberger was a military trailblazer, a true Nazi-American Patriot...

Dateline: Moscow.

August 12, 2001 - a month before the horrific day ... Iris Makler reported over Voice of America: "Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has arrived in Moscow for meetings with his Russian counterpart.... Mr. Rumsfeld was greeted with full military honors ... ahead of an intensive round of talks with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov.... The missile defense shield, which Washington wants to develop, is banned under the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. Washington wants to alter the treaty, but Moscow says it is the cornerstone of world peace and that abandoning it could lead to a new arms race.

"Washington says it is going ahead with its program for developing the missile shield. The Bush administration has indicated that it is prepared to unilaterally breach the A-B-M treaty if necessary. This commitment will be tested sooner rather than later. It is fast approaching the point where Washington will have to scale back its testing program, or to give six-months' notice of its intention to withdraw from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty...."

Rumsfeld's Commission for Rebuilding America's Defenses, sponsored by the Project for the New American Century, recommended, "For US armed forces to continue to assert military pre-eminence, control of space ... must be an essential element of our military strategy ... "3

Some of the panelists:

• Gen. Thomas S. Moorman Jr. (retired USAF), Booz Allen Hamilton

• Dr. Brian Dailey, Corporate VPt, Washington Office, Lockheed Martin

• Gen. Ronald Fogelman, a director of several defense firms - in 2002, these companies received over $900 million in defense contracts collectively - appointed to Rumsfeld's Defense Policy Board

• Whitten Peters, Former Secretary of the Air Force and attorney for the Williams & Connolly Law Firm

• Brig. Gen. Mike Hamel, in 2001, Director of National Security Space Integration, U.S. Air Force headquarters, Washington, D.C.

Rumsfeld’s staff director was Stephen Cambone of SRS Technologies in Washington, DC. The company's slogan: "Excellence in Advanced Technology Engineering and
Systems Solutions for the Defense, Space and Intelligence Communities." Some of Cambone's institutional affiliations:

• National Defense University, Institute for National Strategic Studies: Director of Research

• Center for Strategic and International Studies: Senior Fellow for Political-Military Studies, 1993-1998

• Project for the New American Century

Cambone was the first undersecretary of defense for intelligence, appointed in March 2003. RightWeb reports that the Rumsfeld Commission "echoed the alarmism about national security threats propagated by right-wing groups such as the Center for Security Policy (CSP)." The founder and chairman of the Center for Security Policy is Frank J. Gaffney, who writes that the CSP "prides itself on being loosely modeled on the Committee on the Present Danger," (CPD) another frothing right-wing organization known to be the model for PNAC. On the CSP advisory council and board have been at least a dozen former CPD members. RightWeb: "Before becoming undersecretary of defense for policy, Douglas Feith was the CSP's chairman and legal counsel as well as a financial contributor. And Donald Rumsfeld and Richard Cheney have long been close associates of CSP, which has been described as the 'Star Warriors Hall of Fame.'"4

Four years later, Donald Rumsfeld was still pursuing Dornberger's vision. James Wilsdon, co-author of Masters of the Universe: Science, Politics, and the New Space Race, wrote in a March, 2004 Guardian op-ed column: "Plans for Gulf war II were first rolled out on the boardroom table of a neo-conservative think-tank in Washington a couple of years before George W Bush was elected. That much we already know. What has been overlooked is that the same group of Republican party strategists proposed another target for military occupation - space."5

Outsourcing Big Brother: Office of Total Information
Awareness Relies on Private Sector to Track Americans

By Adam Mayle and Alex Knott
The Center for Public Integrity
December 17, 2002

... The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
(DARPA), which oversees the Total Information
Awareness System (TIA), awarded 13 contracts to BOOZ
ALLEN & HAMILTON amounting to more than $23 million.
Lockheed Martin Corporation had 23 contracts worth $27
million; the Schafer Corporation had 9 contracts
totaling $15 million. Other prominent contractors
involved in the TIA program include SRS Technologies,
Adroit Systems, CACI Dynamic Systems, Syntek
Technologies, and ASI Systems International.

TIA itself was first proposed by an employee of a
private contractor. John Poindexter, who worked on
DARPA projects for Syntek, an Arlington, Va.-based
technical and engineering services firm, suggested the
program in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist
attacks. Poindexter, who headed the National Security
Council during the Reagan administration, was
convicted in 1990 on five felony counts for his role
in the Iran-Contra scandal. The convictions were
overturned in 1991 because he had been given immunity
for his testimony during the congressional
investigation of the affair. On Jan. 14, 2002, he
returned to the government as the director of the
Information Awareness Office.

TIA draws heavily on the private sector. Five of the
eight contractors identified by the Center are
involved in evaluating future contracts for the
program. Grey E. Burkhart, an associate of BOOZ ALLEN
HAMILTON, identifies himself on his resume as
“assistant project manager” of TIA system
implementation. Even the phrase “Total Information
Awareness” has a private pedigree—Visual Analytics,
Inc., a Poolesville, Md.-based software developer and
DARPA contractor, has applied for a trademark for the

Top 100

10: BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON - Booz Allen of McLean, Va.,
moved up a notch this year on Washington Technology's
Top 100 list. It is now ranked at No. 10 with $924.8
million in federal prime contracting revenue. The
company's annual revenue increased from $2.2 billion
in 2003 to $2.5 billion in 2004. The company grew at a
16 percent rate overall last year, Picarelli said.

Booz Allen's primary customers include the military,
intelligence community and the departments of Health
and Human Services, Homeland Security and Justice,
Picarelli said. The company's business with Health and
Human Services is mainly with the Centers for Disease
Control, the Food and Drug Administration and the
National Institutes of Health....

BOOZ ALLEN has established a strong niche for itself
doing complex, high-end work for the federal
government, said John Allen, co-chief executive
officer of the investment banking firm Windsor Group
LLC, Reston, Va. ... The company has the intellectual
capacity to tackle successfully large and complex
organizational and cultural transformations for its
customers, Sweeney said. BOOZ ALLEN "has a deep bench
of business strategists," he said. ...

The Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center tapped
the company to provide a system that uses space-based
capabilities to increase data flow to and from the
theater of operations. As lead systems engineering and
integration contractor, the company is responsible for
oversight, guidance and coordination of all systems
engineering activities for the Transformational
Communications Milsatcom project. ...

Thomas Moorman Profile

Before joining BOOZ ALLEN HAMILTON to work with
government and industry aerospace clients, Moorman
served as the Vice Chief of Staff of the Air Force.
Over the course of his military career, he served in a
wide variety of senior command and staff positions
with the Air Force and the National Reconnaissance
Office (NRO). Most notably he was the Commander of Air
Force Space Command during Operation Desert Storm,
which was described by many as "the first space war."
In this capacity, he was responsible for providing Air
Force space systems support to U.S. and Coalition

Moorman has also led a number of critical
space-related studies over the years. In 1994, he
chaired a study that examined the future of the
country's space launch capability. This study resulted
in the decision to develop the current family of
launchers — the Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle.
Since joining Booz Allen, he has led several other
high visibility, high impact, space studies, including
the Space Industrial Base Study, the Space Systems
Development Growth Study, and the Assured Access to
Space Study, a recently completed update to the 1994

Moorman has served on a number of commissions and
advisory groups, including the Commission to Assess
United States National Security Space Management and
Organization, also known as the Rumsfeld Space
Commission. He has received numerous national awards
over the course of his career, published articles on
space and national security topics, and is a frequent
speaker and panelist in a variety of forums.


After a period of relative peace and prosperity, the
U.S. now faces dangerous new adversaries, who engage
in terror and deception, in a war against the very
freedoms that democracies hold dear. Armed services
must be able to anticipate uncertainty and move
swiftly against aggressors who would destroy liberty
and freedom.

But traditional ways of defense won't work against an
enemy using nontraditional methods—only a transformed
military that combines strategic advantages and
effective technologies with new capabilities and
innovative ideas can meet today's immense challenges.

Booz Allen Hamilton has made support for national
defense a core mission ever since 1940, when founding
partner Edwin Booz helped U.S. Secretary of the Navy
Frank Knox gear up for World War II. Working in
partnership with our clients, Booz Allen has helped
numerous military organizations get ready to face the
defense requirements of the 21st century. ...

Stephen Cambone

"Cambone has stealthily positioned himself as the most
powerful intelligence operator in the Bush

The Secret World of Stephen Cambone

by Jeffrey St. Clair, CounterPunch
February 7th, 2006

[Torture Czar Cambone]

The grave fellow in the business suit sitting between
two uniformed generals at the witness table during the
senate hearings about the abuse of Iraqi prisoners of
war at Abu Ghraib was Dr. Stephen Cambone, the
undersecretary of defense for intelligence, known
throughout the Pentagon as Donald Rumsfeld's "chief
henchman". In his testimony before the committee,
Cambone was unapologetic and almost as dismissive as
the ridiculous Sen. James Inhofe about the global
disgust which erupted over the abuse and murder of
Iraqi prisoners of war. Cambone, an apex neo-con and
veteran of the Project for the New American Century,
evinced disdain not only for the senatorial inquiry
but also at a squeamish Lieutenant General Antonio
Taguba, who sat next him, looking as if he suspected
that he might well be the next one leashed to
Cambone's bureaucratic pillory....??Cambone's
fingerprints are all over the occupation and the
interrogation scandal. For him, there's no turning
[Most powerful spook in the Bush administration]
?Cambone has stealthily positioned himself as the most
powerful intelligence operator in the Bush
administration. On May 8, 2003, Rumsfeld named him
Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, a new
position which Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul
Wolfowitz described thus: "The new office is in charge
of all intelligence and intelligence-related oversight
and policy guidance functions". In practice, this
means that Cambone controls the Defense Intelligence
Agency, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency, the
National Reconnaissance Organization, the National
Security Agency, the Defense Security Service and
Pentagon's Counter-Intelligence Field Activity.
Cambone meets with the heads of these agencies, as
well as top officials at the CIA and National Security
Council twice a week to give them their marching
[Cambone and Bob Woodward]
?One senate staffer tells us he has more operational
sway than George Tenet or Condi Rice. His rise to
power has been quiet, almost unnoticed until the Abu
Ghraib scandal forced him briefly into the spotlight.
Indeed, prior to the events of May, Cambone completely
evaded detection by Bob Woodward, who in two thick
volumes on Bush's wars failed to mention the name
Cambone once. Of course, this may reveal more about
Woodward than Cambone's skill at bureaucratic
[Neo-Con Credentials]
?Yes, Cambone has neo-con credentials. He got his
masters and doctorate at Claremont College in southern
California, an elite Straussian enclave. He went on to
draft sections of the Project for a New American
Century's 2001 Report, Rebuilding America's Defenses,
a document notable for recommending that the US
develop ethnic and race-based weapons. But more
crucial for the speedy trajectory of his career is
Cambone's resume as a devout Rumsfeldian. In 1998,
Rumsfeld selected Cambone to serve as staff director
of the Rumsfeld Commission on Ballistic Missile
Defense, the Congressionally-appointed panel which
justified implementation of the Strategic Defense
Initiative on the grounds that the US was vulnerable
to strikes from missiles freighting nuclear, chemical
and biological weapons launched by rogue nations, such
as North Korea, Iran and Iraq.??Cambone was no
newcomer to the Star Wars scheme. From 1982 through
1986, he toiled at Los Alamos developing policy papers
about the need for space-based weapons. In 1990,
George Bush, Sr. picked Cambone to head up the
Strategic Defense Initiative Office at the Pentagon.
After Bush lost, Cambone migrated to the Center for
Strategic and International Studies, a DC holding pen
for hawks, where he continued to hammer away in essays
and speeches about the windows of vulnerability in the
skies over America.?
[Chief Strategist for SDI Implementation]
?Rumsfeld first brought Cambone into his inner circle
not as an overlord for intelligence, but as the chief
Pentagon strategist for pushing SDI through
Congress....??After 9/11 Rumsfeld moved Cambone over
to work on war planning and intelligence as Deputy
Secretary of Defense for Policy, where he labored
under the neo-con luminary Douglas Feith. There's
reason to believe that Cambone's real mission was to
keep tabs on Feith, a notorious hothead and Cheney
loyalist whom Rumsfeld distrusts. ...

Cambone and Feith reportedly soon developed an equally
acrimonious relationship. But as Feith's star fell,
Cambone's rose. In July 2002, Rumsfeld moved Cambone
to the Office of Analysis and Evaluation, where his
mission was to implement Rumsfeld's plan to reorganize
the military and trim some of its most highly-prized
weapons systems. "Cambone loomed as a huge threat to
the generals", a senate staffer told us. ...

[Death Squads]
?In April of 2003, Rumsfeld placed Cambone in charge
of counter-terrorism teams operating under the
code-name "Grey Fox". This covert operation is a kind
of sabotage and assassination squad run out of the
civil wing of the Pentagon. ... When questioned about
Gray Fox, Cambone snapped, "We won't talk about those
things".??However, military officers did talk about
Gray Fox. ... "If we find a high-value target
somewhere, anywhere in the world, and if we have the
forces to get there and get to them, we should get
there and get to them", the official said. "Right now,
there are 18 food chains, 20 levels of paperwork and
22 hoops we have to jump through before we can take
action. Our enemy moves faster than that".??Aside from
guarding Rumsfeld from assaults from within the
Pentagon, Cambone's main role seems to be cutting
through red tape and bothersome codes of conduct, such
as the Geneva Conventions, to institute legally
questionable policies....

[Cambone Organized the Torture Centers]
?In August 2003, as the occupation of Iraq began to
turn bloody, Cambone ordered Brigadier General
Geoffrey Miller, former commander of the detention
facility at Guantanamo, to go to Iraq along with a
team of experienced military interrogators, who had
honed their inquisitorial skills with the torture of
al-Qaeda and Taliban detainees captured in
Afghanistan. His instructions were to "Gitmoize" the
interrogations at Abu Ghraib and other prisons,
including the notorious Camp Cropper on the outskirts
of the Baghdad Airport, where the Delta Force
conducted abusive interrogations of top level members
of Saddam's regime.?
[William Boykin]
?Cambone's top deputy inside the military is none
other than Lt. General William Boykin, the Christian
warrior, whom Cambone and Rumsfeld elevated to the
position to the position of intelligence czar for the
US Army last fall. Boykin rose to this lofty eminence
after he went on a revival tour of evangelical
churches in Oregon, where he disclosed the top secret
intelligence that the US "had been attacked because we
are a Christian nation". Boykin also leaked the news
that Bush's war on terrorism was actually "a war
against Satan".
?Boykin calmed the congregations by saying there was
little reason to fear because the Christian god is
mightier than Allah. ... It now turns out that Boykin,
the Islamophobe, played a central role in the torture
scandal now gripping the Bush administration. Last
summer, Boykin briefed Cambone on a list of
no-holds-barred interrogation methods that he thought
should be used to extract more information from Iraqi
detainees.??These included humiliation, sleep
deprivation, restraint, water torture, religious
taunting, light deprivation, and other techniques of
torture that have since come to light. A few weeks
after this crucial meeting in June, Cambone sent
General Miller to Iraq with instructions to oversee
the implementation of the Boykin interrogation plan in
order to "rapidly exploit internees for actionable
intelligence". According to Lt. General Antonio
Taguba, who investigated the abuses at Abu Ghraib,
Miller then instructed the Military Police to become
"actively engaged in setting the conditions for
successful exploitation of internees". The grim trio
of Cambone, Boykin and Miller also conspired to put
the control of the detention facilities in Iraq under
the tactical control of military intelligence. At Abu
Ghraib, the job fell to Col. Thomas M. Pappas,
commander of the 205th Military Intelligence Brigade,
a move that Lt. General Taguba called contrary to
established military doctrine.??It now seems likely
that Cambone was only the one to invite Israeli advice
(and perhaps interrogators) on how to extract
information from Iraqi detainees. Before the Abu
Ghraib scandal broke, Cambone freely admitted to the
Washington Times that he was taking advice from the
Israelis and sharing intelligence with them on the
mechanics of occupation and interrogation. "Those who
have to deal with like problems tend to share
information as best they can".

[SRS & Missile Defense/SDI]??These days advancement
through the ranks of the Pentagon often goes
hand-in-hand with opportunities to deliver sweetheart
deals to corporate allies. Here too Cambone has not
disappointed his backers. From 1986 to 1990, Cambone
worked as a top lobbyist for SRS, a murky software
company with deep roots in the Pentagon and CIA.
Although Cambone left SRS for government work, he
didn't forget his old employers. With Cambone's
approval, the Pentagon awarded SRS a $6 million
contract to provide management support for the Missile
Defense Agency, the wing of the Defense Department
charged with managing the SDI program and the
development of space-base weapons.??In addition, SRS
benefited from Cambone's transfer to the spying wing
of the Pentagon. An SRS subsidiary called Torch
Concepts was hired by the Pentagon to conduct a data
mining foray into passenger records of JetBlue
airlines. Bart Edsall, SRS's vice-president, described
the work Torch did this way: "the company got a
contract from the Pentagon to work with the Army to
ferret information out of data streams [in an effort
to detect] abnormal behavior of secretive people".
Sound familiar? It should. The scheme was essentially
a privatized version of the kind of work that John
Poindexter wanted to conduct with his discredited
Total Information Awareness operation. No surprise
that the contracts for this outsourced form of
snooping should fall to SRS. It is already the primary
private contractor working with the Information
Awareness Office of DARPA, the agency which Poindexter
ruled and which continues the nefarious work of prying
into the private lives, including travel, health and
financial records, of American citizens.?
[Stephen Cambone Should be Fragged]
?As Rumsfeld's hatchetman, Cambone has become so hated
and feared inside the Pentagon that one general told
the Army Times: "If I had one round left in my
revolver, I'd take out Stephen Cambone". This raises
the concept of fragging to an entirely new
level.??Excerpted from Jeffrey St. Clair's Grand Theft
