Chertoff Predicts “Simultaneous LA/San Francisco Dirty Bombs”
Someone I know attended a talk which Homeland Security Head Michael Chertoff gave at the University of Southern California on July 20th on port and supply-chain security and public infrastructure protection.
My contact reported to me today by email that Chertoff spoke about more “gut feelings” that he (Chertoff) has about a simultaneous Los Angeles / San Francisco dirty bomb attack that “our enemy is surely planning”.
I’ve had a hunch for a long time that the next false flag attack will be on the West Coast, so that it seems that the whole country is under attack, and not just the East Coast.
My own opinion? I was raised in the L.A. Harbor area and know from first hand accounts that huge amounts of shipments have been being diverted to Ensenada, Mexico harbor, and other small harbors south of the border, for over a year now. Especially oil tanker shipments. This hints that this is being done because the next 9-11 could be a “dirty bomb” nuke in the L.A. or Long Beach harbors.
This hunch was only fortified when I recalled the drills on just such an ship dirty bomb attack drill in a South Carolina harbor in late 2005. Adding to the suspicions, a 4 star general, Kevin Byrnes, who was set to oversee this “drill”, would have nothing to do with it. Instead he was soon fired.
As reported at the time…
“News is flying in regard to the nuclear terror drill set for this month. It is feared by informed researchers that an actual nuclear detonation may be piggybacked on the drill, as was the modus operandi in the 9/11 and 7/7 inside jobs. As reported at this site,(www.total411.info) the drill, involving a nuclear warhead being smuggled into Charleston, South Carolina is to involve the Atlanta-area FEMA office and be run out of Fort Monroe, Virginia.Today, the four-star general in charge of Fort Monroe was fired. Anonymously-sourced and speculative reports on the leading alternative media websites posited General Kevin Byrnes was fired for attempting to prevent the drill from going live.”http://www.arcticbeacon.com/articles/article/1518131/31291.htm
Now a Washington Times report, also anonymously-sourced, highlights the flimsy basis on which he was fired — adultery. Not the Jeff Gannon kind of military adultery popular that same year with Gannon/Guckert’s over 200 unaccounted for visits to the White House, but involvement, while separated from his wife, with a woman in a separate command.
It also turns out Rumsfeld tried to chase him out of the military three years ago. Looks like he finally found a pretext.
From WashTimes August 10, 2005 :
“An official announcement yesterday did not specify why Gen. Kevin P. Byrnes, 52, was removed from his command of all soldier training and doctrine development, but two retired Army officers said it was for having an extramarital affair. Adultery is illegal in the military, constituting conduct unbecoming an officer. The sources said they think the woman was not a subordinate of Gen. Byrnes at U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, Fort Monroe, Va. It is rare in modern times for the Army to relieve a four-star general. … Gen. Byrnes, one of only 11 four-star Army generals, was nearing the end of a three-year term at U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command when Gen. Peter Schoomaker, the Army chief of staff, relieved him of command yesterday.”http://www.huffingtonpost.com/arianna-huffington/at-rummys-bizarro-penta… http://www.arcticbeacon.citymaker.com/articles/article/1518131/31291.htm http://www.whatdoesitmean.com/index796.htm
Rumsfeld’s reason? Gen. Byrnes had been under investigation for some time and had been in the throes of a divorce. A number of officers went to bat [for Byrnes] in 2002 when Mr. Rumsfeld threatened to end his career as lieutenant general. Mr. Rumsfeld was upset at Gen. Byrnes for fighting proposed troop cuts being outlined by the defense secretary’s aide, Stephen Cambone. Then-Army Secretary Thomas White and top generals interceded and convinced Mr. Rumsfeld to keep him. Shortly thereafter, Gen. Byrnes won nomination to a fourth star and the TRADOC command.
And, like the several drills occuring on 9/11, the Fort Monroe Casemate for August 5 reports a series of terror drills at the base on August 17.:
“An anti-terrorism exercise to test the effectiveness of installation plans and procedures in response to a terrorist attack will take place here Aug. 17. A series of live emergency response drills are scheduled throughout the day, according to Bill Moisant, Fort Monroe’s anti-terrorism officer. …Impacts could include extremely thorough security checks at gates, restricted movement near emergency response drill sites and temporary closure of some customer service activities. Moisant explained that the Fort Monroe Crisis Action Team, first responders, supporting agencies, and assigned and tenant organizations will be evaluated on their ability to respond to a simulated terrorist incident. He said the exercise could involve City of Hampton police and fire officials, as well as other off-post agencies.[,..] Exact times and locations of exercise site events are not indicated due to OPSEC requirements. Cooperation by personnel and agencies affected by the exercise is greatly appreciated. The exercise is not open to the general public or local news media.”http://www.total411.info/2005/08/key-general-fired-as-nuke-terror-drill.html<
What I find the strangest of all, is the fact that this Chertoff warning, given at a talk to a USC DHS think tank named CREATE, wasn’t reported at all. I watched the networks, kept an eye on the local papers and websites for a whole week, and nothing mentioned. I think this is odd considering the neocons and their partners in the media have been in overdrive in recent months with the fear mongering. Why leave this out?
I did a little more digging, and took a good look at the CREATE website. I find it very telling that the “team” that makes up CREATE are all ex-employees of some nefarious group and most seemed educated in either Israel or cold war East Germany. i.e. STASI.
Here’s a sample of some of the players involved..
DETLOF VON WINTERFELDT
Director of Create
Who just happened to be educated in Hamburg, Germany. Von Winterfeldt has also worked or consulted for…
Battelle-Pacific Northwest Laboratories,
Nuclear Research Facility, Juelich, Germany

Isaac Maya – Director of Research
Dr. Maya is a Fellow in NASA’s Center for Program/Project Management, and was an Astronaut Candidate Finalist in 1992. He has 10 inventions in the chemical engineering, electronics, medical, nuclear fields, and over 100 total publications, including over 50 refereed journal and conference publications
Lawrence C. Bank- Case Studies Team
Being we’ve now had TWO strange bridge collapses in the past 7 months, I find it a bit coincidental that Mr. Bank specializes in bridges. And let’s not forget his education….
“Dr. Bank received his BSc degree cum?laude from the Technion in Israel in 1980, and his MS and PhD degrees from Columbia University in New York City in 1982 and 1985, respectively. Prior to studying at the Technion, Dr. Bank studied in the Schools of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Cape Town in South Africa before emigrating from South Africa in 1976.”
In 1994?1995 Dr. Bank was a Visiting Associate Professor at the Technion in Israel, and in 2003-2004 he was the UPS Foundation Visiting Professor at Stanford University.
Associate Director for External Relations
Kelly Gribbben, Prior to joining CREATE, Kelly consulted for a biomedical company in Irvine.
For the previous six years, Kelly was Director of Corporate Communications for an NYSE-traded international pharmaceuticals company, ICN Pharmaceuticals
Vicki M. Bier- Case Studies Team
Who wrote an interesting white paper called ” Balancing Terrorism and Natural Disasters; Defensive Strategy with Endogenous Attacker Effort,” in press, Operations Research and happened to received a Women’s Achievement Award from the American Nuclear Society, 1993
There are many more interesting characters you can take a look at at CREATE’s website
I think this is something that needs to be paid attention to and passed along the net as widely as possible. We all know the Mossad planned to blow up a bridge or two on 9-11 and were stopped. Could that plan still be in the works?
If a dirty bomb did detonate, it would cause mass evacuation and there just happens to be 3 or 4 bridges in the immediate vicinity…. Pass it on amigos!
