Bulletin N° 582
20 September 2013
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
Three questions this week in mid-October:
1) After the history of the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty,
or, if the abvove Internet address is blocked,
or, if this also fails,
is another “Red Flag” operation possible ?
2) Is Larry Summers the right man to bring financial closure to the American Empire?

Discussing economic espionage and, perhaps, sabotage by the NSA against the corporations and innovators of competitor nations.
3) Can the US Military save the world?
In Danny Davis' words the Army's incompetent top brass "replicate themselves." Tackling the root of the problems takes one beyond the particular institutions themselves, but I wanted to hear Danny's institution specific suggested fixes. Especially so because he's one of those rare officers, still in uniform, who dare to think out loud what their colleagues think privately about the failures of the system. And it's helpful to be reminded that high ranking military officers are not, by definition, our saviors.
This is part two of our 'Two Colonels' double-feature.
