At no point does Ruppert’s use of Vreeland depend on the latter’s personal credibility. For a complete and accurate account of the matter, including Wing TV’s questions and Mike Ruppert’s answers, see Ruppert’s website, page: Indeed, given enough dots, one can connect any kind of picture one wants.
The job of an investigator, like that of a lawyer or an historian, is to configure an accurrate interpretation whose logic is more compelling than the others. This is achieved through a combination of sound evidence gathering and valid argumentation. Ruppert has produced both in abundance. Mar 07, Szplug rated it it was ok. Fascinating and furious, but frustrating and faulty and in desperate need of a ruthless editor. Furthermore, his accusations hinge upon a motive that was soundly undercut by the election of President Obama inand a POT that has already proven to be less severe than was required for his bloated edifice to pass the most important smell test.
Ruppert really pulled some staggering theories out of his prolix chaff, but within the next several years—at the latest—I’d not be surprised to find much of his finger-pointing to have been obviated.

In such cases, instead of finding Page In such cases, instead of finding dangerous vaccines as the cause of death the federal government could instead blame terrorists. That is, of course, unless and until they perceive that they have nothing left to lose. And the Empire has prepared for that too.
The following chapter is aptly titled Biological Warfare, and begins thus: Patrick Leahy asked Ashcroft by what authority he had decided — on his own and without judicial review — to nullify the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution.
He asked for an explanation and some description of the procedural safeguards that Ashcroft would put in place. He asked Ashcroft to appear before the Judiciary Committee and to respond in writing by November His answer came a little too late. On November 16, Patrick Leahy received an anthrax letter. That it’s only ‘historical’ or far away? May 02, Simon rated it really liked it.
Well this is an epic page tome. And it has some interesting ruppegt. And the suggestion was thus, the Taliban when they ruppery into power brought an end to the planting of Opium poppies througho Well this is an epic page tome. And the suggestion was thus, the Taliban when they came into power brought an end to the planting of Opium poppies throughout the country, and Afghanistan is the worlds major supplier of opium.
The world wide heroin trade accounts rubifon many many billions of cash. This cash needs to be laundered. And as we now know, a lot of our major big name highstreet banks are heavily involved in the laundering of drugs money. So this guy suggests that Wall Street as a w hole is utterly dependent on the cash cow that is the drug trade. And when the Taliban threatened to cut it off, something had to be done.
One year after the US lead invasion of Afganistan, many Afghan warlords who were major players in the crssing trade had been released from the jailcells where the Taliban had put them, and were put to work for the US forces as ‘liasons’. And a mass planting operation took place such that 1 year after the invasion, Afghan opium production hit an all time high. It’s certainly the only coherent argument for why we invaded Ruppedt that I’ve ever heard.

Dec 03, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: Forget about the grainy captured-from-TV video clips you’ve squinted at on various web sites. Michael Ruppert uses concrete evidence –press releases, news stories, interviews, official documents– to make his ruppery against the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks. He lays the book out in the form of a court case, having sections for motive, means and opportunity.
At the end, he ties it all muke with his summation, which ties together nicely the information that precedes it. The book is th Forget about the grainy captured-from-TV video clips you’ve squinted at on various web sites. The book is thick, at pages plus appendices. And it is dense. I don’t think I’ve read another book that presented so much information.
It’s not a happy story, by any means. But if you want to understand how Peak Oil is affecting world events, croseing who was behind the events of September 11, and more importantly why those attacks happened, I highly recommend this book.
Feb 28, Brian rated it it was amazing. This is the scariest thing I’ve ever read. Mar 13, Timothy Scott rated it really liked it Shelves: This, along withwas one of those texts that makes you critically think about the world around you. This was also written years prior to the financial rup;ert, and when reading in retrospect, it’s clear that Michael Ruppert had enough information to warn readers of the impending crisis.
The only fact he really got wrong was the amount of money he thought was at risk. It was far, far, greater than even he imagined. It’s still a relevant and informational read, minus a handful of chapters. The depth and breadth of government malfeasance did not miike after this book was written inrcossing did it stop inrupperf it hasn’t stopped in In fact, one could argue ruopert the corrupt government that existed when Michael was writing about it has became even greater today due to the financial crisis.
I followed Michael’s blog, From the Wilderness, for quite awhile. Michael himself is an alarmist, and constantly seems on edge. Sometimes his posts would make you believe you need to go buy iodine in preparation for ruppfrt war.
I say this, however, without negative connotations. If you’re more comfortable with a media-based belief system, then avoid this book.
Accept what the news tells you, and what the government tells you. Don’t ever ask questions. But if you want to be challenged, and to critically think, I highly recommend you dive into Crossing the Rubicon with an open mind.
LikeI came out of this book with a completely different mindset. It certainly changed the way I view any government report or statistic, and question anything they do. But knowledge can do that to you. Mar 03, Rachael L.
I worked for rup;ert defense contractor so I knew all about the Bush era BS and that is why was I eager to read this.
You know re-affirmation and all that.
