After a hastily organized summit meeting in the Azores on March 16, 2003 with his European allies, President George Bush decided to abandon diplomatic efforts for a further UN Security Council Resolution condemning Iraq's lack of progress in fulfilling existing Security Council resolutions concerning any weapons of mass destruction possessed by Iraq. In a televised address to the Nation on March 17 President Bush gave Iraq President Saddam Hussein 48 hours to leave Iraq, together with his sons, to prevent an US-led invasion. On March 19, soon after the deadline had expired, President Bush ordered surgical air strikes on Baghdad and the "second gulf war" had formally begun.
In the immediate post-Azores environment of finger pointing over responsibility for the failed diplomatic efforts to maintain global consensus over how to respond to Iraq, Europe and the world watched anxiously for the consequences of the U.S., British and Australian armed incursion into Iraq. It is necessary to analyze the global implications of the failed diplomatic efforts and the subsequent military incursion from an "exopolitical perspective," since Iraq holds special significance as a nation that once hosted an advanced race of extraterrestrials whose legacy has not been disclosed to the general public or elected government representatives.
This paper examines how the need to gain unfettered access to Iraq's extraterrestrial (ET) heritage has played a critical role in influencing U.S. foreign policy in the Persian Gulf region ever since the Carter administration. The paper analyzes how clandestine organizations based in the U.S., Europe and Soviet Union/Russia have historically maneuvered amongst themselves to gain the most strategic advantage in having access to and exploiting ET technology hidden in Iraq.
This paper argues that the need for a diplomatic solution to the recent international crisis over Iraq resulted from the desire of clandestine groups in Europe and Russia to restrict access to these sites by U.S. organizations that have grown rapidly in power and displayed an imperialistic tendency that leads to much anxiety among their European counterparts.
The paper furthermore claims that the planet is experiencing the use of "exotic weaponry" between clandestine groups struggling amongst themselves over how to share access and control of ET technology in Iraq, while suppressing the true nature of the conflict to the general public and most elected officials.
This paper also argues that an eventual post-war agreement to rebuild Iraq under an UN mandate, will mark a new phase in the efforts of clandestine organizations to coordinate their efforts in exploiting Iraq's ET heritage.
Finally, the paper claims that the U.S. triumph in launching a military takeover in Iraq generates angst among European clandestine groups concerned over the increased power and imperial pretensions of their U.S. counterparts.
In 1976, a scholar translating ancient cuneiform tests published the first of his books, The 12th Planet.
In his groundbreaking translations, Sitchin described with great precision, the technological wonders and knowledge of the ancient civilization of Sumeria. What made his work controversial was that he claimed that the Sumerians were aided in starting their civilization by an advanced race of beings called the Anunnaki (Sumerian for "those who came from Heaven to Earth").
He described technological wonders possessed by the Anunnaki, in addition to a factional war between the Anunnaki, who finally departed the planet around 1700 B.C. Furthermore, Sitchin described the home world of these beings as a mysterious planet that some call Nibiru that periodically returns to the vicinity of this solar system every 3600 years.
Sitchin's translations proved to be very controversial and mainstream archeologists dismissed the work as too speculative in its premises and conclusions. However, there were very influential clandestine organizations that took Sitchin's work much more seriously.
Ever since at least 1947, U.S. based clandestine organizations have been engaged in the reverse engineering of downed ET spacecraft and communicating with different ET races. The most prominent of these organizations was associated with a secret project named Majestic that was created by President Truman in a classified memo he signed in 1947, wherein he wrote: "Hereafter this matter shall be referred to only as Operation Majestic Twelve." Majestic was initially comprised of 12 members drawn primarily from the defense and intelligence communities.
Over time, clandestine organizations grew rapidly, due to the complexity and size of the ET presence. And they remained a public secret with their existence and composition revealed neither to the general public nor to most elected officials.
The most prominent of the reverse engineering efforts of clandestine organizations has involved a race of ETs commonly described as "Grays," similar in appearance to the ETs depicted in Spielberg's movie, "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind." The technology possessed by the Grays was far advanced to anything possessed by humanity, and efforts began immediately to learn about and reverse engineer this technology.
The content of Sitchin's work, describing an ancient ET race, would most certainly have aroused the curiosity of these clandestine organizations in the U.S. and elsewhere. The possibility that the Anunnaki described by Sitchin had attained a level of technological sophistication even more advanced than that attained by Grays was something that had to be seriously explored.
Certainly the giant physical bodies possessed by this ancient race of ETs - the Anunnaki - suggested they had reached an evolutionary level in biological terms that was more evolved than the Grays, who appeared to be suffering genetic problems. If the technological accomplishments of the Anunnaki matched their biological evolution, then the Anunnaki would have technology far surpassing anything currently possessed by any of the clandestine organizations around the planet created to study and reverse engineer ET technology.
Even more perplexing for clandestine organizations, was the idea that this advanced race could one day return to the Earth and again interact with humanity as they did in the remote past. The idea that the Anunnaki's home world periodically returns to this solar system would most surely have attracted attention in terms of any possible time line and what it meant for humanity.
One way of confirming Sitchin's hypotheses would have been to use the recently pioneered "remote viewing programs" that had been secretly sponsored in the early 1970s by a number of U.S. government and military intelligence agencies. It is likely that these and other intelligence gathering efforts confirmed the validity of some if not most of Sitchin's hypotheses.
If so, then there would have been tremendous foreign policy implications. U.S. and European clandestine organizations would undoubtedly have made it a top priority to gain access to these ancient ET sites in southern Iraq to learn about the advanced technology used by the Anunnaki. Furthermore, they would have been interested in learning more about the purported home world of the Anunnaki in case it did, indeed, return to the vicinity of this solar system in the near future.
The problem, however, was that at the time Sitchin's first book appeared, the Cold War still existed and Iraq was firmly in the Soviet sphere of influence. After a left wing coup in 1958 that deposed the Western leaning King, Iraq nationalized its oil industries and moved firmly into the Soviet camp. In 1968, the radical socialist Ba'ath Party came to power and increased ties with the Soviet Union, developing a socialist system that was secular and dependent on Warsaw Pact countries, The Soviet Union (now Russia) would undoubtedly have known about Sitchin's work and would have been working to confirm it, if Sitchin's hypotheses were true. The Soviet Union had a powerful political advantage in gaining access to these ET sites, if and when they were found, and exploiting whatever technology lay within.
With the unlikelihood that Iraq would cooperate with U.S./European clandestine organizations in gaining access to these ancient ET sites, these secret groups in the U.S. and Europe had a disturbing policy dilemma confronting them. If the international status quo remained, then at some point the Soviet Union might find these ET sites, and reverse engineer whatever technology existed and thereby eradicate whatever technological advantages the West might hold. Furthermore, if the home world of this race did return, then the Soviet Union would be best placed to respond to whatever contingences this created.
Given the above scenario, it would have been scarcely imaginable that U.S. and European clandestine groups wouldn't have developed a top secret set of foreign policy goals whose aim it was to bring about U.S./European access to Iraq's buried ET technology. This would have to be achieved without provoking a Cold War confrontation with the Soviet Union, who would have been aware of the West's goals and resolutely opposed to U.S./European access.
U.S. and European-based clandestine organizations have, since at least the end of the Second World War, coordinated among themselves a joint policy in gaining access to and reverse engineering ET technology found around the planet. The most prominent international forum is undoubtedly the Bilderberg Group which holds closed meetings on an annual basis.
These meetings provide the opportunity for the leading industrialists, politicians, media magnates and military figures from different Western nations to meet and coordinate policies that have global significance ranging from financial and economic policy, to orchestrating political events in order to bring about favorable international conditions for their various agendas. Less well known is that the Bilderberg Group has played a key role in ensuring global non-disclosure of the ET presence and the true extent of ET intervention in human affairs.
Organizations such as the Bilderberg Group and other U.S./European based clandestine organizations design foreign policy goals that are "secret" insofar as these are not revealed to elected public officials and revealed only to those officials who are bound by secrecy oaths not to disclose information about the ET presence and technology. In this way, it has been accurately reported that clandestine organizations have long been able to orchestrate international crises to bring about political conditions that fulfill their foreign policy goals.
The success of the secret foreign policy goals of U.S./European clandestine groups in gaining access to Iraq's ET heritage, and preparing for the possible return of the Anunnaki, lay in promoting international conditions that would allow U.S./Europe to gain unfettered access to Iraq without provoking Soviet intervention and a full scale crisis in the midst of the Cold War. The way in which this could be done would be to promote a series of regional crises that would compel Iraq's staunchly secular socialist regime to take military advantage of these crises.
The solution to the U.S,/European policy dilemma was to sponsor upheaval in Iraq's main rival and regional powerhouse, Iran, that would force Iraq into a military confrontation with its more powerful neighbor, and thereby create opportunities for greater European influence in Iraq.
The primary focus of this secret agenda was that the Shah of Iran would be toppled, and replaced by a fundamentalist Islamic regime that would create havoc and uncertainty in the Persian Gulf region.
Editor's Note: I am wondering if those reading this report are beginning to question the ethics of our country in dealing with other regimes, as / am. We put the Shah of Iran in power after getting rid of Mossadegh. It would appear that the world changes at our discretion. What's wrong with this picture?
The second part of this dual strategy was for France to give asylum in October 1978 to an exiled Islamic cleric, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, who would be given free rein to play a destabilizing role by advocating a radical Islamic State in Iran and undermining attempts to create a liberal secular state by moderate reformers.
The success of this clandestine dual-pronged strategy ultimately led to the collapse of the Shah's regime, who had to flee Iran. Three days after the Shah's departure, Ayatollah Khomeini triumphantly flew from France to millions of admiring supporters. The Shah of Iran had been "sacrificed" and liberal Iranian reformers "betrayed" so a series of regional crises in the Persian Gulf could be orchestrated by U.S./European clandestine organizations that would allow them to gain a strategic foothold, in Iraq.
The new Iraqi regime under Saddam Hussein decided to launch a devastating attack in September 1980 on its larger and more powerful neighbor, Iran, that resulted in a long eight-year war that quickly ground down into a stalemate. Western states, (including the U.S.) and along with wealthy Arab states, began to support Saddam's regime with technology, finances and secret armaments. The end of the long Iran-Iraq war in 1988 occurred almost simultaneously with a rapidly transforming political climate.
Despite its tacit support for Iraq in the Iraq-Iran war, the United States had a distinct disadvantage to its European partners/rivals in gaining access to Iraq's ancient ET sites who had a longer history in assisting Iraq's socialistic regime. The Iraq socialist system, its history of human rights abuses and brutal policies, its strong link with the Soviet Union, and strong opposition to the state of Israel, made it difficult for the U.S. to formally improve its relationship with Iraq's regime.
The U.S. Congress, like most institutions comprising elected government representatives, was simply unaware of the need for U.S. foreign policy to have a cooperative relationship with Saddam's regime in order to exploit the latter's ET assets. Congress would have revolted at any attempt to assist what appeared to be a brutal regime run by a despotic ruler. This meant that U.S. based clandestine groups had to "orchestrate" international events in a way that would fulfill the secret policy goal of gaining unfettered access to Iraq's ET heritage.
Under the first President Bush, Iraq and Kuwait became engaged in a diplomatic crisis over the overproduction of oil by Kuwait in 1991. This meant that world oil prices were deflated and Iraq's oil production would not be sufficient to generate the necessary revenue for Iraq to begin the difficult reconstruction process after its costly war with Iran. This resulted in making Iraq more dependent on Western states and clandestine organizations, a fact that displeased Saddam Hussein, given his awareness that financial independence would give him maximum negotiating power over whom he allowed to exploit the ET resources on his territory.
Given the history of Kuwait's antagonistic relationship with Iraq, the "risk taking" personal psychology of Saddam Hussein, and a recent statement by the U.S. Ambassador to Iraq that "Kuwait was not associated with America," it may well have been predicted that Saddam would interpret this as a green light to invade.
President Bush was a former head of the Central Intelligence Agency and, therefore aware of and most likely a member of, U.S. based clandestine organizations set up to reverse engineer extraterrestrial technology. It is undoubtedly the case that Secretary Baker, as close friend and former chief of staff for President Bush, would also have been aware of the need for U.S. access into Iraq to reverse engineer whatever ET technology existed. Key figures in the Bush administration were most likely aware of any time line that existed in terms of a possible return of the Anunnaki to Earth.
The conflict over Kuwait was an ideal opportunity to lull Saddam into taking the risk of military intervention in order to bring about the desired U.S. intervention and control over whatever significant ET sites existed in Iraq.
While such a conspiratorial orchestration of international events that led to the "first Gulf War in 1991" is undoubtedly controversial for many readers, it is very consistent with the way in which the ET presence has been systemically suppressed globally.
The policy of non-disclosure of the ET presence to the mass media and most elected public officials is made possible by the ability of clandestine organizations to control the media by manipulating evidence, intimidating reporters with threats of ridicule or dismissal for investigating UFO reports, and ensuring censorship by editors and media owners.
The same clandestine groups responsible for this global policy of non-disclosure have the power to orchestrate international crises and events to bring about favorable policy outcomes. This ability is largely due to officials in clandestine organizations being appointed rather than elected. This gives them great freedom in formulating and implementing public policy without the oversight and accountability that elected officials experience.
Subsequently, Hussein did go ahead with a war with Kuwait in August 1990, but he unfortunately found that the U.S. was resolutely opposed to this invasion. The U.S. led multinational military intervention that began in January 1991 ultimately led to the expulsion of Iraq from Kuwait and resulted in the U.S. for the first time having a strategic foothold in Iraq.
Unfortunately for the secret policy goals of the first Bush administration, it was not able to force regime change in Iraq. This meant U.S. based clandestine groups were now in a strategic bind in terms of accessing and exploiting the ET technology under the control of Saddam's regime. Another obstacle to their plans to gain access to ET technology in Iraq was the surprise election of President Bill Clinton in 1992. Unlike the first President Bush, Clinton was not privileged to information concerning the clandestine programs involving ET technology.
There is evidence that ever since the Kennedy administration, there has been a policy of not disclosing full details of the reverse engineering of ET technology to sitting Presidents since this threatened the non-disclosure policy of the ET presence.
The election of the second Bush administration meant the agenda of clandestine U.S. organizations for gaining access to Iraq's ET heritage could resume. Many former officials from the first Bush and earlier Republican administrations supporting regime change in Iraq, were appointed in the new administration. As a result of their association with the Department of Defense, many, if not all of these, would have been familiar with secret activities to reverse engineer ET technology and the true reason motivating regime change in Iraq.
These officials included Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and his deputy Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy Secretary of State, Richard Armitage, Richard Perle, chairman of the Defense Policy Board, a Pentagon advisory panel, and finally Vice-President Richard Cheney, who was Secretary of Defense in the first Bush regime.
The terrorist attacks on September 11 provided the vehicle for the Bush administration gaining support for eradicating global terrorism. Once the Bush administration could make a plausible case that Iraq was a sponsor of global terrorism, and that it had concealed its weapons of mass destruction (involving a threat to the U.S.), it could develop the necessary public support for invading Iraq.
In the build up to the threatened preemptive war in Iraq, a number of events had occurred that indicated that clandestine European/Russian organizations were at odds with their U.S. partners/rivals. Germany was the first major nation that publicly committed itself to ruling out a preemptive war against Iraq, irrespective of progress in the weapons inspection process that began after passage of Resolution 1441 on November 8, 2002. Germany's staking out the "extreme position" made it possible for France, and then Russia, to take up the more moderate position of only calling for military intervention if Iraq failed to comply with Resolution 1441.
France and Russia, effectively stymied U.S. efforts in passing a further resolution calling for international military intervention in Iraq to remove any proscribed weapons of mass destruction.
If the diplomatic maneuvering was simply about weapons of mass destruction, then it was fair to say that the U.S. was acting in an imperialist manner in demanding a further Security Council Resolution to bring about closure to the weapons inspection process. However, since Western intervention in Iraq has long been secretly motivated by gaining access to Iraq's treasure house of ET technology, the diplomatic behavior of France, Russia and Germany needs to be understood in this context.
Many have viewed the diplomatic opposition by the powerful trio of France, Russia and Germany to a U.S. led preemptive war as being clearly in the interests of the world community united against the horror of an unnecessary war that would devastate the Persian Gulf region. There is, however, evidence that what secretly motivated these nations is the awareness that U.S access to ET technology in Iraq would constitute a threat due to the growing power of U.S. based clandestine organizations and their secret reverse engineering projects.
A preemptive war that amounted to a unilateral takeover of Iraq by the U.S. and Britain, was something that European/Russian organizations could not support given the opportunities this would give to the U.S. in increasing its technological advantages and global dominance.
It is very likely that European/Russian clandestine organizations had "publicly signaled" to their U.S. counterparts that this preemptive strike on Iraq was unacceptable. The destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia on February 1 was very likely a result of the clandestine struggle over who would have access to control over Iraq's ET heritage. In a report to NASA by Larry Park, a Systems Failure Analyst attempting to identify the cause of the Columbia disaster, he claims that the disaster was caused by a freak convergence of scalar electromagnetic energy in the mesosphere that struck the Shuttle during its return to Earth. Park's report points to the possible use of "scalar weaponry" in the destruction of Columbia.
Such weaponry uses an innovative form of electromagnetic energy that, according to a retired U.S. army colonel and scientist, Thomas Bearden, was also used in the destruction of the Challenger Space Shuttle and other U.S. "accidents" over the last three decades that these scalar weapons have been developed and used throughout the world.
On March 5, 2003, an unusual amount of seismic activity had begun occurring around the planet. While much speculation surrounded the cause and seriousness of these seismic anomalies, it is worth exploring whether the anomalies were caused by advanced weapons technology that was either being tested or extensively used around the planet.
The existence of advanced weaponry that could produce seismic activity, volcanic eruptions and severe weather conditions was publicly acknowledged by a speech given by former Secretary of Defense, William Cohen in 1997, where at a conference discussing the threat posed by global terrorism, he said, "Many others (terrorists) are engaging even in an eco-type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes and volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves..."
Cohen's speech was NOT widely reported and, indeed, has been withdrawn from the public archives of the Department of Defense, thereby suggesting that the development and use of such technology remains highly classified. In a number of books and papers discussing "scalar weapons" which are capable of the effects described by Cohen, Tom Bearden suggests that such technology has been developed for decades by the former Soviet Union and other states.
He provides extensive evidence that seismic and weather anomalies over the last thirty years have often been caused by these scalar weapons that involve the use of highly charged electro-magnetic energies. Bearden also believes that such technology may well be used during the Iraq war and involve urban populations centers coming under attack.
If anomalous seismic activity since February 5 was caused by scalar weaponry, then it is very likely a secret war is occurring between clandestine groups over access and control of ET technology in Iraq. It is also likely that European/Russian clandestine organizations are active in such a war that is being used to curtail U.S. efforts to take sole control of Iraq's ET heritage.
If a secret war is, indeed, occurring, then it is likely that in the interim before a new agreement is reached over the access of ET technology in Iraq, there will continue to be a violent struggle between secret organizations that is kept from the public arena. Given the power of the "exotic" weaponry possessed by these groups, this means that the planet is entering a very dangerous period ahead. As long as disagreement exists, and the U.S. continues to project its power and control around the planet, violent opposition by non-U.S. based clandestine groups is likely to occur.
The failure of a diplomatic solution to the Iraq crisis has ushered in a period of intense conflict between U.S. based clandestine organizations with their former partners and now rivals in continental Europe who have aligned themselves with Russia.
There is evidence that powerful exotic weapons, such as scalar electromagnetic devices, are being used around the planet in an effort to warn the U.S. about overstepping itself, and to "encourage" a diplomatic solution to the current crisis over access and control of Iraq's ET heritage. In the context of heightened tension and uncertainty following the U.S. led invasion of Iraq, the following policy recommendations can be made to help navigate through the dangerous times ahead:
1) Full public disclosure of the ET presence in human affairs and the historical role played by different ETs in their interaction with humanity is necessary.
2) Full disclosure needed of all astronomical data that can confirm whether a tenth planet to the solar system exists that has an orbit of approximately 3600 years.
3) Full public disclosure of reverse engineered or ET based technology currently possessed by clandestine organizations is immediately required.
4) A UN mandate for administrating a postwar Iraq, in order to ensure cooperation and consensus among major powers over how Iraq's ET heritage is used to benefit all humanity is important.
5) Appointed officials in clandestine organizations need to be fully accountable for their actions and policy to their respective national legislatures and/or executive branches of government.
6) Executive and/or Congressional oversight of U.S. based clandestine organizations is required to ensure these groups operate within guidelines that are consistent with constitutional procedures and societal values.
In the present political climate where the Bush administration appears intent on a unilateral foreign policy supported by a small number of loyal allies, there is likelihood of increased global conflict given the threat posed by U.S. clandestine organizations gaining a strategic advantage over their European/Russian rivals. If predictions that the home world of the advanced race of ETs described by Sitchin is soon to reappear are accurate, this may help explain the intensified conflict between U.S. and European/Russian clandestine organizations that currently exists.
All clandestine groups may be jockeying for the best position in a race for ET technology and knowledge that may be necessary in a forthcoming ET confrontation/encounter that will determine the future of human civilization as we know it.
The U.S. led invasion of Iraq represents success of a decades-long secret policy aimed at securing U.S. access to Iraq's ET heritage. The price paid for America's triumph is European/Russian anxiety over what the U.S. intends to do with the strategic advantage it will soon enjoy.

Editor's Note: I believe
that every citizen of every country should have a chance to read
this profound yet disturbing information about the ET Presence
(past, present, and future) being withheld from humanity by secret
organizations throughout the world. It also appears that some
of our leaders are not being honest with us about the true motives
for the war with Iraq.
