,,, it is a fraud. It has taken me all afternoon with Apple getting my MobieMe and .Mac accounts changed:
I’m writing this with tears in my eyes,my fam and I came down here to London,England for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off us but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.
We’ve been to the embassy and the Police here but they’re not helping issues at all and our flight leaves in less than 3hrs from now but we’re having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let us leave until we settle the bills.
We are in distress.
Of course, if you really want to send me some cash, send it to west Virginia where I am.
This was an interesting, long article at Truthout.com… Certainly worth reading before we send troops to Iran in the future (and who knows?, we’ll probably add Yemen, too if Joe Lieberman gets his way).
Read the clips then go over to Truthout and read the whole thing. Then wonder why we get involved in this crap!
The article ends:
This is not the first time that Giraldi has been tipped off by his intelligence sources on forged documents. Giraldi identified the individual or office responsible for creating the two most notorious forged documents in recent U.S. intelligence history.In 2005, Giraldi identified Michael Ledeen, the extreme right-wing former consultant to the National Security Council and the Pentagon, as an author of the fabricated letter purporting to show Iraqi interest in purchasing uranium from Niger. That letter was used by the George W. Bush administration to bolster its false case that Saddam Hussein had an active nuclear weapons programme.
Giraldi also identified officials in the “Office of Special Plans” who worked under Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith as having forged a letter purportedly written by Hussein’s intelligence director, Tahir Jalail Habbush al-Tikriti, to Hussein himself referring to an Iraqi intelligence operation to arrange for an unidentified shipment from Niger.
This from McClatchy (only a clip… there’s a lot more):
Bernie Madoff, the biggest self-confessed fraudster in US history, will spend the rest of his life in prison, having defrauded his investors to the tune of $65 Billion.
According to the BBC, US District Judge Denny Chin said that Madoff’s crimes were “extraordinarily evil.”
If only some of the other extraordinarily evil criminals of the last decade could get theirs… say, for starting wars without cause where Americans died by the thousands… then I might believe in a just society again.
