Too Bad for the General, Live by the Sword.....

A U.S. general was killed and more than a dozen people were wounded on Tuesday, including a German general, in the latest insider attack by a man believed to be an Afghan soldier, U.S., German and Afghan officials said.

The U.S. Army said late on Tuesday the slain general was Major General Harold Greene, a senior officer with the international military command ISAF. He was the most senior U.S. military official killed in action overseas since the war in Vietnam, military officials said.


Hats off to all the families of those killed and wounded in this latest attack on the occupiers. Perhaps you don't deserve the pain you are now going through but most likely you did support these men in their supporting roles in this new world disorder.

The general took his chance. He hoped to comfortably retire one day soon, living out his illusion of patriotic mayhem in personal peace. He lost in the game. Too bad. Not every puppet makes it.

  1. Kenny, when the U.S. dropped the first bomb in Afghanistan right after 9/11 I told everyone the U.S. had lost "the war." And that de facto reality would manifest itself when the first high ranking officer was killed. It took awhile, but it is working out. It's not going to be pretty.

  2. I can not confirm it, but this guy looks loke a Jew. Also his last name of Greene, could be a shortened version of Greenwald, a popular Jewish name.

    Gaza conflict: 360-degree panorama of flattened town of Khuza'a, Gaza

    A special 360 camera captures the impact Israeli air strikes and tanks on Khuza'a, Gaza ahead of Tuesday's 72-hour ceasefire

    Devastation wrought by an earlier bombardment of Khuza'a, a small farming town less than half-a-mile from Gaza's south-eastern border with Israel, is plain to see.

    A furious assault that residents say began on July 20 levelled much of Khuza'a - leaving whole streets flattened, once-grand mosque domes reduced to ground level and the local council's "Bon Voyage Khusa'a" sign lying crumpled in bits like an unfortunate joke at the town entrance.

    One man recalled counting 360 shell attacks in a single hour.

    Most of the town's 14,000 inhabitants fled in three separate phases, with returning survivors describing how the town, a few miles north of Rafah, came under fire from all directions.

    As the Israeli army mostly held its fire during a seven-hour "humanitarian window" on Monday, it continued its bombardment of the south-eastern city of Rafah, where unconfirmed reports suggested a British aid worker had been killed on Sunday.

    So this is what self-defense looks like?

    My mind is still reeling from the total and complete devastation.

  4. I have sympathy for the family, but I do not mourn this man's loss. There was a sure way for the family to have kept him: stop his support of murder and mayhem by the Imperium.

    He sure is no hero.

  5. Meanwhile, there's a nasty rumour going around that the head of ISIS/ISIL is a Mossad agent:

      This article appears in the December 20, 2002 issue of Executive Intelligence Review.

      Mossad Exposed in Phony `Palestinian Al-Qaeda' Caper

      by Michele Steinberg and Hussein Askary

      The United States government has been provided with concrete evidence that the Israeli Mossad and other Israeli intelligence services have been involved in a 13-month effort to "recruit" an Israeli-run, phony "al-Qaeda cell" among Palestinians, so that Israel could achieve a frontline position in the U.S. war against terrorism and get a green light for a worldwide "revenge without borders" policy. The question: Does the United States have the moral fiber to investigate?

      Evidence of the Israeli dirty tricks burst onto the public scene on Dec. 6, when Col. Rashid Abu Shbak, head of the Palestinian Preventive Security Services in the Gaza Strip, held a press conference revealing the details of the alleged plot, as his agency had put the pieces together. The revelations undermine the "big lie" that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has used to justify new brutal attacks on Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip and other occupied areas. Sharon claimed on Dec. 4 that Israeli intelligence had "hard evidence" of al-Qaeda operations in the Gaza Strip. Now, the top Palestinian leadership has shown the United States and other nations how Israeli intelligence entities were creating that al-Qaeda link!

    Could be just a matter of being in the wrong place (UK controlled compound) being guarded by Afghan soldiers and having one of those Afghan soldiers getting lucky and shooting indiscriminately at a group of people and killing a US 2-star general. Could be. On the other hand…maybe he was taken out. What might the motive be? Maybe money.

    Sometimes google autocompletes some pretty interesting stuff.
    Greene was a proponent of DCGS-A. “Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene, the Army’s deputy for acquisition and systems management, said the Defense Common Ground System “replaced nine different intelligence systems.” “This really is a change in methodology,” Gen. Greene said. “It reduces the amount of hardware we have to buy and the footprint on the ground.”

    In the above article we are led to believe “combatants” tell a far different story. Some seem to like Palantir better.
    I typed in “DCGS-A vs” and Goog autocompleted Palantir. To keep things simple lets just say Palantir is Peter Theil and In_Q-Tel. For those who care Theil is the other PayPal moneybags and In-Q-Tel is the CIA front for startups and investing.

    So who is the biggest contractor for DCGS-A that the recently deceased 2-Star general preferred. That would be Raytheon But they do have subcontractors such as Mantech .

    Palantir and Raytheon both have office in the UK as a side note.

    There really is a lot more digging to do but there are others more capable and have a bigger voice. I will leave you with this little bit of trivia. MG General Greene is survived by his spouse, Susan Myers who is a Vice President at Mantech (specifically Program management support services, Systems integration, services)

  7. Anonymous is on the trail above. Last night, a simple search brought me to http://heavy.com/news/2014/08/major-general-harold-greene-dead-dies-killed-kabul-military-shooting/ (Five Fast Facts You Need to Know...) which in turn brought me to http://usarmy.vo.llnwd.net/e2/c/downloads/271929.pdf and http://www.army.mil/article/28600/RDECOM_senior_leader_promoted_to_Brigadier_General/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ManTech_International about which:

    "ManTech has grown to become one of the U.S. government’s leading providers of technologies for national security programs supporting the United States Intelligence Community and Departments of Defense, State, Homeland Security and Justice; the Space Community; and other government agencies. ManTech started the business of Personnel Security Investigation in 2000.[3] They specialize in software development, enterprise security architecture, information assurance, intelligence operations support, network and critical infrastructure protection, information technology, communications integration and engineering support."

    Enterprise security architecture was the buzz phrase used by a couple of early 9/11 whistleblowers (Indira Singh) (Richard Grove). Tread lightly and bring your own clew.

    Where the fellow whose death is the subject was shot by an insider masquerading as something else, this could be a rats' nest of international intrigue and espionage, since this fellow obviously -- by virtue of his knowledge, degrees and assignments -- knew mountains about the deep workings of battlefield intelligence, software, and much much more, this isn't about the fact that he was high-ranking, or about Afghanistan.

    This may be about the mega-high-tech battlefield being warmed up for global dominance of Eurasia and the space over it.

    Or it might not.

  8. Okay, so I went looking some more.. back to the initial reports about the shooting.

    Double-check me, but apparently we have a convoy of VIPs going through a checkpoint where the alleged perp poisoned the regulars and then hid himself along with his NATO-supplied standard-issue assault weapon and popped out at the right moment to wound a large number of people but kill the Maj. General with several shots to the back and one to the back of the head.

    I guess this is just lucky spray shooting by Rafiqullah, but I've never fired one of those things.

    The most recent article I found is from that stalwart of truth in news owned by Amazon [ http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/new-insider-attack-in-afghanistan-as-investigators-probe-killing-of-us-general/2014/08/06/c8bbd680-1d62-11e4-82f9-2cd6fa8da5c4_story.html ] but we learn a lot by looking at the early propaganda.

    The authors cover issues related to immigrate, and national security.

    Mentioned "under the fold" is the brush-off that the shooting was "an act of opportununity" by Martine von Bijlert, of the Afghan Analysts Network.

    Who is this lady? Well, she co-wrote a piece for CFR. http://www.cfr.org/afghanistan/presidential-elections-bring-stability-afghanistan/p32680 and the link there brings us here https://www.afghanistan-analysts.org/about-us-2/about-aan/ where we discover that

    "She grew up in pre-revolutionary Iran (1972-78). As an adult she has since then spent well over a decade working and living in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan.

    Martine studied Sociology of Non-Western Societies at Leiden University in the Netherlands (1988-94) Her interest in the region was rekindled when she visited Quetta to study the situation of Afghan refugees in Pakistan (1990 and 1992/3).

    She subsequently worked as Community Development Officer for MEDAIR in Grozny (1995) and Kabul (1997-1998); as an Asylum Officer for the Immigration and Nationalisation Service in the Netherlands (1996-1997 and 1999-2000); as Political Secretary for the Netherlands Embassy in Tehran (2001-2004); as Political Adviser to the EU Special Representative for Afghanistan in Kabul (2004-2008); and since 2008 as an independent analyst on Afghanistan, still largely based in Kabul. In 2009, she co-founded the Afghanistan Analysts Network."

    So this was probably a dead-end alley, an exercise in nothing. But a Dutch sociologist who grew up in Iran now hangs out in Afghanistan.

  9. Aris, Ed...good research. Whether the shooting was a random or planned opportunity or Greene was targeted, the back story of companies vying for billions in contracts is important. Greene's wife, a former Colonel, working for a company her husband endorses and has influence in procurement is in my opinion a conflict of interest. But these kinds of things are fairly typical and open questioning is rare even with competitors.

    Having worked for many years at a small company that supplied some commodities to the military and where I was the main contact in dealing with them, it was often a fluster cluck of waste and maneuvering to get that piece of the pie, especially with the larger corporations who had money to throw around and to hire ex-military officers to help them out.

    Here is a couple other acquisition funny business stories:
    The Dry Run
    And this Reeks of not quite right. I wonder if his "suicide" was inspiration for any House of Cards plot lines.

    Ed

    I at first thought there something else going on but am reassured by the "no conspiracy quotes" in the article.
    "...an “act of opportunity” by a soldier who happened to be in the base and was not an indication of any broader conspiracy." By Martine Van Bijlert

    and "Officials said there was no indication that he was part of a conspiracy or had Taliban sympathies." So there is nothing to see here.

    So nothing to see here either. The alleged shooter was killed by other Afghan soldiers and his name will not be released. Coalition high ranking officers don't travel throughout a war zone with a security detail and there was no need for public affairs (photographers/videographers) to be present when multiple high ranking officers from various coalition partners visit the MFNDU because there just wouldn't be any photo opportunities.

  11. Aris, it is difficult to tell if your tongue is protruding into the side of your cheek. I'm going to assume that it is. By definition, a traveling general must have bodyguards (except maybe if your name was Patton, or Yamamoto). Everyone ranking below him is probably armed or at least has ready access to a weapon. These "insider" Afghan attacks are not rare. The press and photography are perhaps not on the road with them, but the travel schedule must have been known or publicized or discovered by electronic surveillance. There is, of course, nothing in the records that would suggest a Zionist capability or tendency for espionage, the use of their inherent ability to appear Arabic, or any Zionist presence in the Afghan/Pakistani region. These are figments of our anti-Semitic tendencies. And it could just as easily have been of some other nationality.

    Now, as for corruption in the defense procurement industry, entire libraries have been devoted to it, and there are multiple specialists in the field of journalism (and a couple of well-known blogs) devoted to the topic. We could jump on that merry-go-round and try to follow the people and the dollars through the revolving doors, but that strikes me as being in the same vein as trying to decide if there were planes or not on 9/11.

    What I am saying is simply this: Maj. Gen'l Greene's depth of understanding and insight -- into the covert high-tech capacitors of all that software, engineering, systems architecture and whatever else has been folded into that pie by In-Q-Tel companies and their hidden companies -- is something that may have needed to be masked or submerged by assassination masquerading as a war zone incident (no previous examples, I'm sure). Find someone who knows. Find the Singh or Grove who can explain it. Who benefits and how is an open question. We out here in the cheap seats don't get to ask and don't get to see and understand until after all the shooting is over and then only if someone was paying attention. But the shooting may be about to begin and Israel is a snake who has close ties to Russia, China and the US. Someone is playing for a high stakes advantage.

    I'll tell you what I am thinking: We still don't know why General John Wheeler ended up in a landfill in Delaware, and the investigation that should have occurred got buried by high-end operatives too. So Kenny is right. This is like a high-level mafioso getting "offed" by another one.

    1. Tongue in cheek yes.

      I believe Wheeler was a message well received. He had a lot of folks in his corner with his efforts with Vietnam Memorial Wall. His dump in the dump and the video of him wondering around the parking garage said "shut up" to the people who knew what he knew. But I have no idea what he knew.

      Patton... I don't know maybe he was a Brass Target.

      There are no good guys. Or I should say there are no good guys that we will ever hear about.

  12. Okay, I went back for a third view... back to the beginning again but this time to focus on this fellow Greene and where he'd been and what he was working on. The core phrases and words seemed to be these: Program Executive Officer for Intelligence, Electronic Warfare and Sensors… and he spent four years as the U.S. Army's Project Manager, Battle Command.

    And I found this:

    “Part of the reason green-on-blue attacks have subsided since 2012 is because security measures were put in place to prevent such incidents following the spike (there were only two  green-on-blue attacks in 2008, five in 2008 and 2009, and 16 in 2011, according to a tally compiled by the Long War Journal). Among the changes to security were “guardian angels,” or NATO soldiers who watch over NATO and Afghan troops. Then-U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced the plan in August 2012, according to Foreign Policy.”

Others should have an equal whack at the topic JUST ON GENERAL PRINCIPLES even if it doesn't pertain to why this fellow was shot in the back four times. Have fun, folks...

    2. Thanks for the links, Aris. I've lived in and worked in this area for decades, so I fully appreciate that the cerebro-technical end of the military-industrial-intelligence Goliath is right here. When you meet a vaunted Rear Admiral (retired) carrying a handful of fiber-optic nanoseconds as her trademark, handing them out to guests and well-wishers, and you understand that this very small woman crafted computerized firing solutions for WWII battleship guns that threw a shell that weighed as much as a 1958 Dodge sedan 25 miles into a target that was moving in three dimensions, and when you realize that she was a consultant to one of the largest computer companies in the world (now defunct) and that she coined the term "bug", and when you get fired from the highest-paying job you'd ever held by the back-room arrangements of a secret leadership run by the VP of Procurement for Raytheon when it was brought to his attention that you'd co0authored a document that derailed the Pentagon's plans for population relocation and the hospitalization on the East Coast of radiation burn injuries resulting from the use of battlefield nukes in the Fulda Gap, then you get a sense of the power of the companies that stand -- along with their very own tiny airbase -- in the shadow of the history of the Minutemen.

      You are right; the issue of what Greene understood and the software built into the system is very much tied into the same stuff used on 9/11. I strongly urge people to spend some time browsing those links; we are talking about something that integrates information from a wide and broad array of inputs (words, voice, images, data) and brings it in pictorial format to a desktop computer.
