Vacation Notice
(My travel schedule is booked up for 08 & 09. Any extended absences from the blog will be noted here)


Write to me if you have any thoughts you'd like to share, information you want me to have or a correction to any information you see here.  I respond to all emails.  CAT  NOTE: I reserve the right to NOT respond to whack jobs that waste my time.

Eddie's GraveIt is as much about the ongoing events and behaviors of those who murdered Eddie (and others)  on the Fort Totten Eddie Peltier ArmyReservation, North Dakota today as it is about how it was that night Eddie was murdered.  How the ongoing criminal enterprise continues to flourish unabated and without a single response from the Justice Department.  Well, not surprising on that!  They would have to investigate themselves and how some of their elite were directly involved and have prospered from the corruption that exists, protected and funded by US Tax Dollars.

Even if you don't live on the Rez, it's your money, YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK.  You owe it to yourself to peek in once in awhile and see what you are paying for

Texas Monthly Magazine has done a feature on this case.  Read the October, 2006 Issue.  OR, go to the online version.  Michael Hall went to the rez and saw for himself.

Go See Alice

Despite all the denials and the outright lies on the part of Carl McKay and his gang to minimize the outright, intentional under weaving of the bullet proof vests and armor that our troops are depending on to safe life and limb, a trip to the documents Page will show you more of what really happened.  There are three documents there.  Two one-page partial transcripts between Rhea Crane, the Quality Assurance moron at SMC  and another party.  Clearly, she is aware that what they are doing is criminal as well as immoral.

The third document is 62 pages long, pdf format and details the complaint filed in Federal Court, under seal, as "Qui Tam" which is legalese for "Whistleblower". 

With all that information, and I am sure that Dorgan the Organ and the rest of them have much more of this than I do, I again ask the question:  Why are these criminals not in court?  Why, on the face of the severity of these charges, during the investigation process was someone in high position in the Federal Government pushing to get another contract into SMC?  Who was that person?  Must have been really big, because it worked!

And remember: When they tell you that the vests were tested for ballistics, they passed, that those tests are run on new vests, not the ones that would have expired from perspiration, sand, dust that would get into the lesser weave and render the vests, helmets useless.  Whatever tests they did, were just for show, not for any kind of real world event, where doubtless, they would fail, prematurely, costing life or limb.

And the contracts continue to roll on in!

Write to Dorgan the Organ, your news media and to anyone in Congress that you can reach.  Demand answers. 

I still want to know how the FBI could miss all the drugs that the SMC plant is typically rife with.  I guess the warrants were 'too specific' to allow for them to pick up what they were tripping over, eh?

A line in the Jefferson Airplane song, "White Rabbit" talks about a world that doesn't make any sense. 

"..And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small.."

You definitely will find, when you start digging for answers on this one, that you are being sent down one rabbit hole after another.  They don't want to answer. 

If there were to be a proper investigation on the SMC plant, just on the crookedness and corruption and fraud on this one case alone (and there are others, I am sure!), it would mean that a much bigger investigation would follow as you cannot look at any of these players and their corruption as isolated incidents.  It is a web of deceptions and corruptions that are in place to enrich those who have the power to stop cold, bona fide investigations and court cases, in their tracks.

Oddly enough, this investigation centers around 'weaving'.  "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." So the saying says. 

Caught up in this web of corruption are high rollers and big players from very high up the food chain in American Politics and the Justice Department. 

Read 'em and weep! RC "get killed" transcript, RC "Round Up" transcript, each runs one page.  The other one (on the documents page, SMC) is 62 pages deep.

I can just imagine ol' Crawl McKay just had his woody wither on that one.  Don't worry Crawl, you can always go Cialis!

Complicity: Where Darkness Thrives

Silence is complicity.  You may think you are playing it safe, but you are in fact, growing the very weeds that will choke the life out of your garden.  People keeping silent, especially those who do it to keep their jobs, are part of the evil that they witness when they say nothing.

I wonder how many soldiers died as the result of nobody speaking out, even though many knew, about the cost cutting corners taken so that Crawl McKay and his buddies could defraud the government? 

The Feds like to say that there is no evidence anyone was injured or died as the result of the under spec kevlar in vests, helmets and plates.  That is a cover up statement if ever one was!  Saying "There is no evidence" means "See No Evil."  They choose not to look.  By not looking they cannot find.  Ergo: "We can find no evidence.." the unsaid part (because we won't look).

They want us to take their word for it that they 'tested' the under spec product and it worked fine.  I cannot take their word for it.  The parameters of those tests, if in fact they did run them, had to be jimmied to produce the result that would let SMC and therefore, the government, off the hook.

They never, I guarantee you, tested any of the armor worn by any of the soldiers that were injured or killed.  That might have shown that the armor itself, under spec as it was, failed and life or limbs were lost as the result. 

Choosing only to test a piece of fabric close to the desired weave, under optimal circumstances and nowhere near battle or front line conditions, is not a test to prove anything true.  Rather, that is the kind of test you run in a magic act, to distract the audience, the nation, away from the real issues and problems these under woven items create. 

I wonder how many survivors and vets would like to know what the factory runs were and how bad they got hurt because of that?  Who speaks for them?  Certainly not the government which only wants to protect itself from accountability.

They either never test the protective gear when a soldier is wounded or dies; or if they do, they ignore what they find.  How many soldiers got the 20/21 weaves?  How many got the ones as low as 10?  You think they will tell us?  Never!  They cover up, and cover up.  That is what they do. 

How can they come to the assumption that no one was injured or killed when clearly, the specification listed as 'critical' was treated as a joke by the honchos at SMC?  Why would you assume, when the documents state that anything less than that "critical minimum', would in fact fail; how could you assume without testing the existing failures, that none  in fact did fail?  How could you assume that the threshold for failure being crossed so hard, would not lead to failure?  Only Government double-speak on that one.  They don't want us to know, and they don't want us to ask.  But they can't stop us.

How many families are told the truth?  Where would they go for answers?  Well, you can start here.  I have more documents to post. 

Remember when you read these documents that the government contract specified that the critical minimum was 35x35 on the weave.  That was not 'optimal', not 'optional' but critical minimum because anything less was failure. 

Weave runs went out that were as low (so far, the document is 93 pages and I am only on page 5) 21 x 20.  I really wonder how our government 'tested' that for protection.  I wonder if any of them would be willing to wear a vest made of that low of a weave, and take a couple of bullets, just to prove that they believe it was 'good enough'.  Don't hold your breath.

And those of you that held your tongues, stayed silent, didn't 'snitch', ever wonder how many soldiers died and bled because of your silence?  Maybe you should. 

Silence is the biggest part of any evil.  Without silence, evil would not be able to exist and thrive.  Your silence will not get you into Paradise.  There is a rough road ahead for all of you, lined by the dead and the broken bodies of the soldiers you failed to protect.  They trusted you and you failed them and your nation. 

Our government has failed us all.

Silence no more.  Raise your voices and speak the truth. Raise your voices and demand that our government, at all levels, be held to account.

Why was Poopsie allowed to steer that raid and investigation from the outset?  Does he hold some special place in the hearts of Federal Law Enforcement?  If so, why?  He was defrocked as a cop for corruption, and that should be something they already know.  (They do, but they like 'em like that!). 

Teach your children now, before it is too late, the ways of courage and light.  Or carry on with your cowardly ways and watch as they become you, quicker than you can bury them.

I am going to post the documents as they come in.  Keep checking the documents page for more updates.  Government cannot conspire against the people unless the people do nothing to stop it.  You, me, all of us, can work together to hold these people accountable for their crimes of corruption, indecency and the deaths of so many whom we may never know, who could have survived, could have come home, if not for the greed of a few small men.

You know where to find me.
