Kompass, field operations director at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, passed a confidential internal report on the abuse of children by French troops in CAR to the French authorities in 2014 after the UN failed to raise the alarm and stop the exploitation. The alleged abuse involved hungry children – as young as eight – in the M’Poko camp for displaced people, coerced into sex in return for food or a little money.
Instead of investigating those allegedly responsible for what proved to be an even wider crime – including the involvement of its peacekeepers – the UN’s Office for Internal Oversight Services launched an internal investigation into Kompass’ conduct. Accusing the former Swedish diplomat of leaking, it condemned his “misconduct”, suspended him from his job, humiliatingly marched him out of his office, and demanded his resignation.
“…the very inventor of the Bacharach Hi-Flow Sampler, an engineer named Touché Howard, had been attempting to blow the whistle for years…”
There are no conspiracies in America, of course.
“Dr. David Allen, then-head of EPA’s Science Advisory Board, has led an ongoing, three-year effort to cover up underreporting of the primary device, the Bacharach Hi-Flow Sampler, and a second device used to measure gas releases from equipment across the natural gas industry. Allen is also on the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin, where he has been funded by the oil and gas industries for years.”

Many may know John Kiriakou as the only CIA employee who saw the inside of a jail cell as a result of the extensive torture conspiracy. Only, Kiriakou was imprisoned for exposing it to the public, not for participating in it. This miscarriage of justice was sickening at the time and widely reported. But inside the belly of the beast, Kiriakou was much more involved in the CIA’s so-called “War on Terrorism” than many may have realized.
Paul Jay and The Real News just produced a must-see 10-part interview with Kiriakou, from his home, where he remained under house arrest—an American political prisoner.
What caught my attention was the name Abu Zubaydah (or Zubaida). Kiriakou was the guy who actually captured Zubaydah in Pakistan. Zubaydah has been a glaring red flag in the government’s 9/11 story since his capture. My first email to Kiriakou explains a few of the reasons why:
Subject: Abu Zubaydah
It doesn’t seem like you were in on these revelations, but Zubaydah was reported to have linked Al Qaeda directly to the Saudi and Pakistani governments. Moussaoui did likewise. The cover-up of 9/11 is all about this link to Saudi government officials who allegedly helped the hijackers in the US. That makes the cover-up of the 28 pages (and more) high Treason. Comment?
It is my view that the CIA snatched Zubaydah from FBI and tortured him in order to shut him up, and not to get information. We have heard nothing further publicly from Mr. Zubaydah since. Have we?
“Zubaida expresses great relief at [believing he was in Saudi Arabian custody] and, under the influence of the “truth serum” sodium pentothal, tells his interrogators to call Prince Ahmed bin Salman, a nephew of the Saudi king. He provides telephone numbers from memory and says, he will tell you what to do. He proceeds to give more information and phone numbers, claiming ties with higher-ups in both the Saudi and Pakistani governments. He also names:
Pakistani Air Force chief Mushaf Ali Mir, who is said to be closely tied to the fundamentalists in the ISI.
Saudi Intelligence Minister Prince Turki al-Faisal.
Prince Sultan bin Faisal, another nephew of the Saudi King.
Prince Fahd bin Turki, another member of the Saudi royalty.
9/11 Rosetta Stone?
According to [Gerald] Posner, Zubaida claims that all of these people were intermediaries he dealt with in the frequent transfer of money to al-Qaeda. The phone numbers and other details he provides are consistent with information already known by US intelligence. Zubaida then lays out many secrets about the 9/11 attacks. One unnamed investigator will later call them The Rosetta Stone of 9/11.”
To my surprise, Kiriakou responded, and quite candidly. Here is his statement, which he gave me permission to publish:
Subject Re: John Kiriakou “Abu Zubaydah”
You raise a lot of good and very important questions.
I’ve come to the conclusion that because virtually everything the CIA has told the American people since 9/11 has been a lie, there is no reason to believe anything else they tell us.
I, for one, believe that every American has the right to know exactly what is on those 28 pages. I’ve not seen them, but I believe they are about Saudi government culpability in the attacks. But I doubt that any of our elected officials have the guts to tell us.
All the best,
How many others in the government know this quite well, but are unable to speak out on it due to the retribution that would inevitably come from simply telling the truth? The government’s persecution of whistleblowers is another lever of power, which allows official conspiracies to occur, and even to thrive.
