Pakistan Marriott False Flag, Goldman Sachs and Buffett +

Marriott-attack, 9/11 executed by US: SJC

LAHORE - Lawyers have drawn parallels between the Marriott-attack and 9/11 blaming America for executing both of them.Chairman Save Judiciary Committee (SJC) Abdul Rashid Qureshi and secretary Mian Jamil Akhtar through a statement on Monday ruled out suicide bomb at Marriot and maintained that it was an attack which was operated automatically. Expressing their sympathies with the victim families, they said the eyewitnesses and the circumstances do not lead to believe that it was a suicide attack but the one operated automatically in which America is directly involved.....(cont...)

Kazakhstan, NATO hold joint military exercises
ILI MILITARY RANGE, Kazakhstan, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Kazakhstan held joint military exercises with NATO on Tuesday, a move likely to irritate Russia which sees the Central Asian state as part of its traditional sphere of interest.
Moscow, already angry at NATO's support for Georgia after Russia's military conflict with the Caucasus state, has accused the Western alliance of trying to poach its traditional allies.
Oil-rich Kazakhstan, which has manoeuvred carefully between Russia and the West, used Tuesday's war games with NATO to call for closer ties with the military bloc

Homeland Security Detects Terrorist Threats by Reading Your Mind (update)
Baggage searches are SOOOOOO early-21st century. Homeland Security is now testing the next generation of security screening — a body scanner that can read your mind.
Most preventive screening looks for explosives or metals that pose a threat. But a new system called MALINTENT turns the old school approach on its head. This Orwellian-sounding machine detects the person — not the device — set to wreak havoc and terror.
MALINTENT, the brainchild of the cutting-edge Human Factors division in Homeland Security's directorate for Science and Technology, searches your body for non-verbal cues that predict whether you mean harm to your fellow passengers.
It has a series of sensors and imagers that read your body temperature, heart rate and respiration for unconscious tells

Massive open-source games could harness 'wisdom of crowds' in world problems
One game, set in 2019, is called Superstruct and asks players to imagine and help find solutions to five "super-threats" looming over the population -- including global food shortages, crippling pandemics, super-hackers derailing public infrastructure, mass homelessness and a global fuel war.

The Coming War Might Be A Hot One Part Four
The current Bush administration poured vast funds into Pentagon procurement, especially after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. But then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his top Department of Defense lieutenants were enamored of high-tech, almost science-fiction wonder schemes that cost the Earth.......Therefore, even in fighting guerrilla conflicts, there is no alternative to having a large force of state-of-the-art battle tanks and armored personnel carriers. This wisdom is not unique to the U.S. military. It also is shared by the top military planners of Russia, India and China. It would take a very rash person to bet against all of them and claim confidently they are wrong.
