Subject: SLS: Gulf War Illness

Dear Denise,

Contact officer Joyce Riley immediately.
Many of her written works are available
upon request, via the Internet.  The evidence
available to me indicates that the Centers
for Disease Control ("CDC") aided and abetted a
tainted serum which was inoculated into
Gulf War soldiers.  It may have been 
anthrax, or an anthrax derivative.  Former
U.S. Senator Don Reigle from Michigan has some
crucial evidence which is found in his
testimony to a Congressional committee.

So, contact Joyce immediately, if not sooner.

I am standing by.

all the symptoms and illness' that everyone is having.  I am writing this
letter, because we have a 1 year old son, who was born with a very rare VSD
(heart defect), and had open heart surgery at 5 months of age.  Although we
have all recovered from the surgery, he is starting to have seizures, with
no explanation why.  My husband is still active duty and stationed at
Whiteman AFB, Missouri.  The doctors here are really ignorant, to say the
least and don't believe the heart defect, or any other illness' are related
to the Gulf war.  We have no defects of any kind on either side of our
families.  They offer us no explanation for anything, nor want to discuss
the subject with us.  I too have symptoms, that can not be explained, or
cured.  I e-mailed Fox News, after they aired a show on the Gulf War and
gave them my "sad" story, but got no reply.  Maybe it's because I'm a
"nobody", just another woman compl!

>>Amir: You don't believe me, well I'm telling you it was a conspiracy. I

>>Investigator: What do you mean? You pulled the trigger, it's that simple.
>>Amir: Then why didn't Raviv report me? He knew I was going to do it and he

>proof enough that another person was superimposed over Amir, he provides the
>coup de grace.
>>Amir On The Kempler Film:
>>Shamgar Investigators (SI): In one of the segments you are filmed shoulder
>to shoulder with three policemen.
>>Amir: I saw the picture in the newspaper. Very strange.
>>SI: Do you recall what they said in this segment?
>>Amir: I want to see that tape,  there are some really weird things in it.
>>SI: What's weird?
>>Amir: I look weird in it, I don't know.
>>SI: Really?
>>Amir: What I'm wearing, the shirt. It's not just that they colored it in,
>they colored it blue in the papers. That's nonsense. I have to see the tape.
>>SI: A tricot shirt.
>>Amir: You see that it was rolled up to here (half way). In the paper you
>don't see that.
>>SI: And in the paper you are shooting from the left. But it wasn't that way.
>>Amir: I shoot from the left hand?
>>SI: You have to see the tape.
>>   Amir notes that his shirt was rolled up past his elbows, yet in the
>still of the Kempler film published in Yediot Ahronot, the shooter is
>wearing a long sleeved shirt. As soon as I read this quote, I rewatched the
>Kempler film. There was Amir either wearing a short sleeved shirt or as he
>claims, a long sleeved shirt rolled up. The conspirators botched another
>detail of the Kempler film stills.
>>   And worse, the Shamgar Commission knew it but never entered the fact
>into the public records. Instead the commission curtly and quickly dismissed
>all evidence of a conspiracy. But it was the commission's investigators who
>pointed the fact out to Amir that he appeared in the film's still picture
>shooting with the wrong hand.
>>   And what does Amir mean that his shirt was colored in? In the film he is
>wearing a distinct blue shirt. Is that wrong as well? Not likely, as we
>shall see. Amir seems to be saying that his shirt's color was altered or
>enhanced but someone else at the murder scene thought it was blue.
>>Who Was That Usher?
>>SI: You spoke of someone in a beret who tried to remove you or something
>like that. We don't know who he is.
>>Amir: Yes, he was some kind of usher. I don't exactly know what he was.
>>SI: You said he wore a tricot shirt with a beret on its side.
>>Amir: He stood there all the time. He was an older man.
>>SI: And what is this that suddenly he said, "Tell them to come to you?"
>>Amir: Just interesting.
>>SI: Were there barriers up?
>>Amir: Not yet. They began tearing down barriers. They photographed me from
>the moment I arrived.
>>SI: We don't see you arriving. We see you at a later stage on the potted
>>Amir: The potted plant was at the end, a minute or two before.
>>SI: We see you five minutes before.
>>Amir: Yes, that's the potted plant I sat on...
>>SI: Alright, now you're standing two metres from the scene. People are
>approaching you and you have to explain your presence. Did you say you were
>a chauffeur?
>>Amir: No, because they'd ask to see my license and things could get messy.
>I thought I'd just act innocent, say I wanted to see Rabin...I hung around
>the cops saying nothing. So if they said that everyone had to leave, they
>would think I belonged there...Shulamit Aloni arrived and the usher
>appeared, causing a small problem.
>>SI: What did he do? What did he say?
>>Amir: He said (to unidentified security personnel), "Did you block the back
>of the parking lot?" They answered no. So he announced over his radio that
>it should be barricaded there.
>>SI: Who are you talking about, the usher in the beret you just showed us?
>>Amir: Yes, I think. I thought it was strange that he was a civilian
>ordering policemen around. But I thought he was an organizer of the
>demonstration. Then he sent a policeman to clear out the crowd. Another
>policeman and a driver were ordered to leave.
>>SI: Did the bodyguard beside Rabin's car see you?
>>Amir: Yes, but he didn't point me out. He gazed at the crowd.
>>SI: Were the barriers up?
>>Amir: There weren't any. There were lots of policemen and no one could get
>in. After the driver left, the usher came up to me and asked, "Was he one of
>yours?," meaning the policeman. Then I understood he bought my act.
>>SI: Did he ask you about the driver?
>>Amir: I don't know. I don't like to lie so I said, "I don't know him. He
>was here by the car all the time." The usher made a round and came back to
>order another driver beside me out. Then a policeman came and escorted him
>away. He shouted, "No, no. The one in the blue shirt."
>>SI: To you?
>>Amir. Don't know but he pointed in an odd way, like this, he pointed a bit
>at someone. The policeman came back to me and asked, "Where is your car?" I
>said, "Here, here." He said, "Good" and left. I continued standing in the
>same spot. 
>>   Amir says he was photographed from the moment he arrived. But by whom?
>He appears in the Kempler film that was released publicly only for the last
>five minutes before the shooting. He managed to get into the sterile zone
>because no barriers were put up. Then an "usher" in civilian clothes cleared
>out everyone around Amir, including policemen and chauffers but left him in
>>   Obviously if this "usher" was clearing out all the other drivers, Amir
>should have been removed with them. One driver suspected Amir of something
>and shouted to a policeman that he is the one who should be escorted out.
>Minutes before the assassination, all unauthorized personnel were removed
>from the killing zone except Amir by an "usher" of whom the Shamgar
>Commission investigators had no knowledge whatsoever.
>>Amir On Like Minded Friends
>>Amir: I got to the demonstration and saw a friend from Likud youth on a
>bus. He told me that Itamar Ben Gvir wanted to kill Rabin tonight. "You know
>about this, of course," he said. "I told the police about it." I laughed. In
>recollection I can't figure this one out. But there were a lot of strange
>things...I walked to the stage but security was too tight so I walked
>towards the parking lot. I saw a friend of mine behind there. A real left
>winger from law school. So I walked around and entered from the other side
>and just as I arrived, they began removing people from there.
>>   Admittedly, the left wing friend from school could have been in the
>murder zone quite by accident. Or, perhaps he was surveilling Amir. But the
>fact that Itamar Ben Gvir was there is more than merely significant. He was
>a highly publicized extremist, famous for stalking and harassing Rabin. He
>threatened to kill Rabin that night and the police were informed. Therefore,
>they must have been on high alert against the possibility of a religious Jew
>in his twenties shooting Rabin. You would think...
>>   But Gvir and Amir were not the only young potential religious assassins.
>Buried in the police records of the assassination night is the report of
>police officer Shlomo Eyal who wrote, "During the rally I spotted two young
>men in kipas carrying bags who looked out of place. With the help of a
>uniformed policeman, I checked the bags and examined their IDs. One was
>named Noam Freidman. We let them go."
>>   Noam Freidman is another political murderer. In March '97, it looked
>like Prime Minister Netanyahu was not going to convince his cabinet to
>support an Israeli withdrawal from Hebron. The cabinet was evenly divided on
>the issue and its fate lay with three fence sitters.
>>   Then a soldier arrived in Hebron and started shooting up the marketplace
>in front of cameras from three international networks. He was apprehended
>after killing one Arab and wounding six. The Arabs were about to riot when
>the PLO's intelligence chief Jibril Rajoub arrived from Jericho twenty
>minutes later. After he calmed the situation down, all three wavering
>cabinet ministers chose to support withdrawal.
>>   By the next day, it was obvious to many that there was much wrong with
>the scenario. Freidman was expelled from his yeshiva a year before for
>"unstable behaviour" and was admitted to a government psychiatric hospital
>for six months. He was released and shortly after, decided to join the army.
>The recruiting center was warned in a letter from the city of Maaleh
>Adumim's social welfare department not to accept Freidman nor ever "place
>him in any position requiring a weapon." Yet despite his long stay in the
>hospital, his disturbing school record and a municipal warning, Freidman was
>drafted. After his attempted massacre, the IDF promised a full explanation
>of his inexplicable recruitment. It was never released.
>>   Suspicions rose that the IDF deliberately recruited unstable young men
>for devious purposes. These suspicions were reinforced by the impossibility
>of Jibril Rajoub's appearance in Hebron. At the time, the city was in
>Israeli hands and Rajoub had no right to be in it without prior permission.
>So what was he doing there? He explained to the newspaper Kol Ha'ir that he
>heard about the shooting over the radio and immediately travelled to Hebron
>at 180 km/hr. And no one saw him do it. Even at this breakneck illegal
>speed, he could not have made the ninety minute trip in twenty minutes. In

>>    So what was this killer doing that night at Kings of Israel Square? As
>researcher Yechiel Mann observes, "He wasn't there to celebrate peace or to
>hear Aviv Gefen." 
>>Amir On Arabs
>>   Avishai Raviv's superiors, Agents Kheshin and Barak testified to the
>Shamgar Commission that he reported only on Amir's violent intentions
>towards Arabs and not on his violent intention towards Rabin. Amir, they
>insisted, was a potential threat to Arabs. He tells a different story.
>>SI: Did you organize against Arabs?
>>Amir: No, no. This is nonsense from the media.
>>SI: This wasn't the media, rather what others said in their investigations.
>>Amir: I said we have to protect settlements. But hurt Arabs. In wartime,
>yes but never kill them before, God forbid...I'm alright with the enemy.
>>Amir On Eyal
>>   Yigal Amir was supposed to have been an active member of the extremist
>group, Eyal. That is the image of him spread by the Israeli media. This
>image went a long way to explaining his shooting of Rabin. But he doesn't
>agree with it.
>>SI: Did Kach or Eyal members come to your seminars?
>>Amir: They came just one sabbath but I threw them out. I really gave it to
>them. I can't stand their types, just don't publicize that fact.
>>SI: There were youths who came to Hebron on the Sabbath and overturned
>market stalls.
>>Amir: Not with my group, never. Ask anyone. I didn't let anyone near them.
>Once, at Orient House some of them tried causing chaos but I gave it to them
>but good because I can't stand that kind of nonsense...I wasn't familiar
>with extremist groups...Don't believe me, but I'm not a radical.
>>   Then what was he? Do moderates gladly accept the blame for murdering the
>prime minister? While Amir's claim of not harming Arabs is borne out by
>ample testimony, his non-association with radical groups, especially Eyal,
>does not jibe with the facts. He may have been trying to protect people from
>arrest by association with him. Then again, consider his testimony regarding
>Avishai Raviv.
>>Amir on Raviv:
>>Amir: I became acquainted with Avishai Raviv at university. He was nothing
>on campus. He would organize sabbath events and people didn't come. I came
>because it was important for me to see the places. I didn't admire him for
>his organizing talents...He was on the fringes before he met me. Only
>through my seminars did he gain legitimacy. I didn't understand why he would
>destroy it all the time with his publicized swearing-in ceremonies and the
>like. Now I understand a lot of things, many more things...After the
>Goldstein (massacre), Raviv moved to Kiryat Arba and everyone told me he
>worked for the Shabak. Despite the rising suspicions, I got to know him as a
>person and I was a bit opposed to it all...After Goldstein there were a lot
>of arrests and people suspected Raviv was behind them. So they told me not
>to befriend him. I answered that even if he is a Shabak agent, he's a human
>being...Avishai Raviv helped me a lot. He brought me a cellphone, he brought
>me lots of things...I have friends who are spiritual pals, who I can talk to
>and Avishai was a friend like that. He's immature and does a lot of stupid
>things but he's a good guy and I appreciate his character. There are very
>positive sides to it. He would arrange visits to childrens' hospitals and
>old folks homes just to make everybody happy. I still believe in him. I know
>he has a good heart.
>>SI: There were witnesses who saw you and Raviv discussing murdering Rabin
>with a group of Kahanists.
>>Amir: It's true that Avishai Raviv also said that Rabin needed to be
>murdered but I wasn't sitting with this group.
>>SI: Did you ever hear Avishai Raviv say that Rabin needed to be killed?
>>Amir: Yes, I heard that lots of times.
>>   According to Amir, Raviv was a hapless organizer, on the fringes of
>university life until he came along and legitimized him. And all the while
>he was boosting Raviv's career, he knew he was a Shabak agent. Even so, he
>didn't mind Raviv supplying him with 
>>a cellphone and other goods because Raviv was basically good-hearted, even
>though he constantly expressed his view that Rabin had to be murdered.
>>   What we have here is one inconsistent story. If Amir knew Raviv was a
>Shabak agent, he should have had nothing to do with him. His excuse that
>even spies are people doesn't remotely wash... unless he had his own Shabak
>>Amir On The Shabak
>>"In the past year I had exact information about Rabin's movements. I knew
>which rally he would appear at, where he was going, every place he went."
>-Yigal Amir
>>Amir: They pressed the Shabak into service against the people. And what are
>they doing after the assassination? Repressing the people more. It's absurd.
>It wasn't their incitement that caused me to do what I did...The head of
>Shabak said a lone gunman would never murder Rabin. So he incited lone
>gunmen to try.
>>SI: Where did you hear he said that?
>>Amir: It was around. People think Rabin was killed because the Shabak
>didn't interfere with the murder. I say they couldn't have stopped it.
>>   A rather mixed message but after all the fluff is off the cake, Amir is
>saying the Shabak had nothing to do with the murder. He has chosen to
>forgive Raviv for being a Shabak agent and probably ratting on the people
>who came to his seminars and he has chosen to forgive the head of the Shabak
>who he claims indirectly incited him to murder Rabin. He is being a might
>too gracious about the intelligence apparatus which manipulated him into
>prison for life.
>>   He takes the same attitude with the previous intelligence agency he,
>definitely, worked directly for.
>>Amir on Riga, Latvia.
>>SI: We want to hear about your emissarial work in the Soviet Union in '92.
>There are a thousand and one speculations about this period. What did you do
>>Amir: The Liaison Office isn't so secret anymore. Once it was secret. They
>wanted organizers for Zionist activities and Hebrew teachers, all kinds of
>things. They asked my army unit (the religious Yeshivat Hesder) to send
>people. Every two months, they would change staff and I went with my friend
>Avinoam Ezer. When we got there, they were working with 15 year olds, trying
>to convince them to immigrate. I thought this was all wrong, that it was
>smarter to target older students. So I went out in the street with a kipah
>on my head and found them. I was a real attraction, a Yemenite with a kipah
>and eventually gathered 100 students around me for social events. It was a
>huge success.
>>   Repeated within months of arriving back in Israel. As far as anyone
>recalls, Amir was a shy, introverted boy in highschool yeshiva and far from
>a gregarious soldier. However, his personality changed drastically in Riga.
>It is most unlikely that on his own initiative he went out on the streets
>collecting students. Nativ was an intelligence branch, not a free school.
>Amir was given practical training in social organization and returned to
>Israel with a new character and perhaps a mission he didn't understand.
>>SI: Were there bodyguards there?
>>Amir: Now you're jumping ahead.
>>SI: We understand you went through a personal security course.
>>Amir: Nothing, not a thing. Just minor security training. What are you
>implying? We didn't have weaponry, just tear gas.
>>   Nativ members are not known for their openness. Even after over forty
>years of existence, little is known of its operations. Amir, almost
>certainly was on some kind of intelligence mission in Riga, however minor.
>Back in Israel, he duplicated his successes in Latvia on the campus of Bar
>Ilan University. He became an attraction in Israel even before the murder.
>After that, he became a worldwide attraction. And all because of a shooting
>that continues to confuse him.
>>Yigal Amir On The Shooting
>>SI: Try and recall exactly who said `They're blanks' or what was said.
>Everyone says they heard something different. And try to recall if you said
>>Amir: I didn't say a word. And I wouldn't have said anything because it
>might have warned them. It's absurd that I would have said anything.
>>SI: Maybe immediately after to save yourself, for example?
>>Amir: No. The blanks shout happened before I was pushed to the ground. It
>was during the shooting. It's difficult for a person to shoot and shout,
>you're concentrating so much. 
>>SI: In the army they shout "Fire, fire," while shooting.
>>Amir: Only in dry runs. I didn't shout anything. I distinctly remember that
>someone on my right shouted it.
>>SI: What were his exact words?
>>Amir: "It's a blank, it's not real." I'm not sure of the exact words but
>that was the message.
>>SI: Not something like, "Cease fire?"
>>Amir: No, no. It was, "It's a blank, it's not real."
>>SI: How did the shots sound to you?
>>Amir: I'm not positive. I remember I shot, they pounced on me and I got off
>two more shots. I recall the first thing the police asked me on the ground
>Was if I had shot a blank or not. I didn't answer but then I remembered
>someone shouting `blank' while I was shooting. It stuck in my mind; "What is
>he trying to do to, screw up my mind?" I don't know, it was very weird. It
>didn't make sense that a bodyguard at the moment they're shooting at his
>prime minister would ask if it was a blank. He would first count on the
>worst case. Unless he was expecting something else.
>>SI: None of the bodyguards said it was him.
>>Amir: Does it appear likely to you that he would admit it today? They'd
>finish him off.
>>   Why is Amir so certain that if a bodyguard admitted to shouting,
>`They're blanks,' he'd me killed? That's a rather harsh penalty for shouting
>two words. Amir does know more than he is telling, probably a great deal
>more. But he is either too frightened, too threatened, too intimidated, too
>brainwashed, too drugged or too ignorant to say anything resembling the
>whole truth.
>>   There was no reason for the Shabak to keep Amir locked up in solitary
>confinement for a month after the murder. He had already cooperated with the
>police and confessed. He should have seen his lawyer and family within days.
>But it was a month before the Shabak felt he was ready to speak to
>civilians. One can easily imagine the kinds of gruesome pressure applied on
>him to stick to one self-incriminating story.
>>   But the investigators refused to give up. They wanted to solve the
>central mystery of the `blanks' shout and ideally, they wanted Amir to
>confess to the shouting. The questioning continued during the next session.
>>SI: You know we have witnesses who say you did the shouting.
>>Amir: I've heard that but it's not true. It was someone to my right, one of
>the bodyguards. I'm not sure if it was the one in the black suit or the
>other one, but it was one of them. I was shocked. Instead of acting to help
>him, they shouted that the bullets were blanks. There very strange things
>going on there.
>>SI: What strange things?
>>Amir: While I'm shooting, he shouts, "They're blanks." I don't remember if
>I heard it after the first shot or the second or third.
>>SI: Some say it was the police who shouted it.
>>Amir: Not the police. No, no. It was a bodyguard. When I heard the shout, I
>was shocked. What, didn't I check the bullets? A bodyguard when he hears a
>shot, he doesn't stop to ask if they're blanks. He may as well just go home
>for a nap if he does that. He has to take action.
>>   The Shabak is trained to shoot an assassin in 0.8 seconds. It takes
>longer to shout
>>"They're blanks. They're not real." Had the bodyguards shot instead of
>shouted, Amir could not have fired the alleged two more rounds. He realizes
>that something is terribly wrong but stops well short of saying that
>perhaps, he did shoot a blank just like the bodyguard(s) said.
>>   Someday, he might draw just that conclusion if he puts what happened
>after he "shot" Rabin in proper perspective.
>>Amir: I aimed at his spinal cord, not at his heart, his spine...I wanted to
>paralyse him, not kill him. After the shot, I stopped shooting to see what
>kind of reaction, bodily reaction there was.
>>SI: Was there any reaction?
>>Amir: Nothing, he continued standing in the same way. Then they jumped on
>me from the sides and I shot twice more. But I don't remember anything about
>those shots. I never even saw Rabin's back.
>>   Amir aimed for the spine and shot Rabin in the back. But to his
>surprise, Rabin didn't even flinch. So he fired again while being pounced on
