CIA recruiting at Virginia Tech

"The single shooter was unusally effective at killing, almost as if he had been trained to do so." --mparent7777

From November 2005 . . .

For the second time this year, the Central Intelligence Agency will be coming to Virginia Tech to recruit students.

And for the second time this year, they will be met with protests from students who view the CIA as an immoral organization that engages in torture and murder.

Nicholas Kiersey organized a protest last spring when the CIA came to campus. He released the following statement Monday about the CIA's trip to Torgeson 3100 Thursday at 7 p.m.:

"Blacksburg, VA November 13, 2005 - A coalition of concerned graduate students and campus organizations at Virginia Tech are this Thursday staging a 'teach in' to protest CIA recruitment on campus. Planned events also include the protest of a 'career information' session to be held by the CIA later that evening.

On November 2nd, 2005 the Washington Post published an article entitled “CIA Holds Terror Suspects in Secret Prisons”. The article reported that the CIA has set up a covert network of secret prisons and interrogation centers, known as “black sites”, in several countries around the world, including several democracies in Eastern Europe and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Prisoners at these facilities are held indefinitely and often in isolation, without due process of the law. Moreover, CIA interrogators working at these sites are permitted to use the CIA's approved "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques," some of which are prohibited by the U.N. convention and by U.S. military law. Among the tactics approved for use are "waterboarding", intended to induce in prisoners the idea that they are drowning.

While intelligence officials defend the unrestricted operation of these sites as necessary for the successful defense of the country, it should be noted that both the sites and the suspected practices carried out at them would be illegal if operated within the USA, which is a signatory to the U.N. Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. Importantly, the same is true for the democratic host states in Eastern Europe where some of these sites are located.

The 'Teach In' will take place on Thursday, Nov. 17, 5-6.30pm, in Torgerson 3100. The event will feature talks by Virginia Tech instructors and the presentation of a draft letter to President Steger's office, signed by a number of concerned Virginia Tech faculty and students.

The letter will request that Virginia Tech place a moratorium on all CIA activities on Virginia Tech's campus until such time as a thorough and independent investigation certifies that the organization has been thoroughly reformed and no longer engages in practices that contravene international law and basic standards of human rights.

The CIA's scheduled 'career information' session will take place at 7pm in the same location.

Sponsoring campus organizations include: The International Club and Amnesty International at Virginia Tech."

The Virginia Tech massacre occurred on April 16

quasimodo

The big questions that should be on EVERYONE's mind is:

(1) WHO got shot/died, and who didn't.

(2) Who BENEFITS?!

(3) This is obviously a "professional" job --- WHO is COVERING UP, feeding us with disinformation.

The answer to question (1) leads to (2) which naturally leads to the answer of question (3).

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Folks, we solved the case with Columbine, Katrina, Asian "Tsunami" of 2004, USS Liberty, Project Northwoods, 9/11 --- we can solve this also!!!

"Tsunami" of 2004? Do you think Joe Vialls was correct? There's no evidence it was deliberate...

As for this new massacre, there's surely much more to it than the media is saying. Let's see how long it takes for the media to start talking about gun control.

This will never rightly be a gun control story i will venture.
Events of 1970 are sure going around again. This swing of history has it's own twists and turns but the first thing i though about upon hearing the news on the radio this morning was Kent State and National guardsmen gunning up a crowd of anti-war protesters there. Not the same thing i will admit but the same sorts of terror effects will ensue from this i think. And i do think this will be used to REMOVE your right to arms and there protections.

Events not Virgina Tech will never get through this. 20x Anna and Imus just left for his Island never to be seen again.

Now the NEWS is all that much harder to get on the events of Dire Importance for all.

Who Gains? Always ask this first.

First you take D.C. Then you take New York.

Former Tech student is guilty in planted-bomb case

Friday, February 16, 2007

By Shawna Morrison

UPDATED 3:59 p.m.

A former Virginia Tech student pleaded no contest this morning to planting a homemade bomb in someone else's Blacksburg apartment in June.

Janaka Nuwan Kumara Siriwardena, 21, of Sterling cut a window screen to get inside the Orchard Street apartment, where he placed a homemade bomb and a bag full of a white substance. He then told Blacksburg police that he had been inside the apartment and seen those items.

Police searched the apartment and questioned the residents and found inconsistencies in Siriwardena's story. When police talked with him a second time, he confessed.

Siriwardena was found guilty this morning of manufacturing an explosive device, burglary and making a false police report. The white substance was thought to be cocaine so Siriwardena was charged with possession of a controlled substance, but that charge was dropped after the white powder was analyzed and found not to be a drug.

Siriwardena will be sentenced in April, after a background report has been completed.

If Americans were to read (if they could read) "The Kent State Coverup," by Joseph Kelner and James Munves, they'd realize that the "official" story again is a lie. The students were on their way to class (not protesting) earlier in the day with the the National Guard killers close by. Seemingly oblivious to what was about to take place, the students had no idea that one of the killers would accidently fire off a round (.45 caliber mind you--definitely meant to kill and not "deter") to start a chain reaction that became the reason for the slaughter and maiming of one of the first justifiable murders on our home ground resulting in increased reasons to justifiably taking away our guns. Those damn students. Why couldn't they just have stayed home!
