Death

Last week, a celebrated and influential Pentagon insider and defense contractor was found dead in Delaware. The body of John P. Wheeler was discovered as a garbage truck dumped its load at a landfill. The death has been ruled a homicide, and thus far the investigators who are piecing together the case have offered no clear motive or reason for his mysterious murder.

In seemingly unrelated news, there has been a sudden die-off of birds and fish in the southern United States that has a lot of people talking about the apocalypse. First 5,000 blackbirds plummeted to the earth in Arkansas, littering the ground with their corpses and even hitting passers-by. Then a few days later, 500 red-winged blackbirds and starlings were found dead in nearby Louisiana. And 80,000 drum fish died in an Arkansas river close to where the blackbirds died.… Continues …

Fahrenheit 451 All Over Again: Operation Dark Heart

Unsuccessful at stopping Wikileaks' release of sensitive information in July of this year, the Pentagon has decided to go old school and just burn Lt.

Julian Assange: Soon-to-be-whacked?Julian Assange: Soon-to-be-whacked?

Julian Assange is making himself very inconvenient for the establishment right now. When his website Wikileaks recently released documents to the media regarding the war in Afghanistan, it caused a firestorm of debate and criticism at the worst possible time for the US military, which is trying desperately to drum up more support for their efforts in that part of the world. Some are now saying that the "hit list" of Task Force 373 could amount to war crimes.

The Pentagon has opened an inquiry aimed at finding the source of Wikileaks' information. But they may have bigger problems on the horizon: the whistleblowing site has three times as much classified information relating to the Iraq war, Newsweek has learned. When and how this cache of documents will ultimately be released has yet to be determined, but we can almost certainly assume that the US government is scrambling to learn everything they can in order to limit the political and intelligence fallout.
