Obama threatens Senate with cybersecurity executive order

==================================================================

{XANIEL’S NOTE :  ANOTHER EXECUTIVE ORDER ? 

If it were that easy to get around Congress and the Senate whenever a President wanted to get his on way,

and by doing nothing more than JUST kicking out Executive Orders at will all day long,

we would have become a Communist Enslaved Nation long ago.

HOW IS THIS PRESIDENT GETTING AWAY WITH THIS ??

130 Orwellian Executive orders so far and counting and NO ONE even seems to be trying to stop him !

I know that I’m not the only one who sees just how out of control this President has gotten.

He does’t even see himself as a President anymore. He sees himself a King or Emperor, or worst still, ‘ a god ‘

As much as our Government SUCK’s and both parties are all eating off the same plate, we still have a system that must be followed.

Whether it’s good, bad or otherwise, it’s what we still use to keep any one person or group of person’s from grabbing to much power,

(as is happening right now before our very eye’s by [the Obama] and his Marxist Administration).

How is it that (the Obama) and his so called Czars,(a name that should have been a clue to us as to where our country was headed),

are not in handcuffs being charged with so many crimes that it would take days to read them all.

Is there no one who will take the lead on all of this obvious treason and deliberate take over of our great Nation?

No one in the F.B.I,  C.I.A.,  or even the military who will stop this crazy Unconstitutional Nightmare?

What’s it going to take for people to wake up and then stand up?

Is the entire Country just going to stand by and allow all of this to happen?

There are people like me and far more intelligent people among us, doing whatever we can,

to stand against this implosion of our Nation, but we are still coming up way short.

WAKE UP, DAMN IT ! DON’T JUST STAND AROUND HOPING THE REST OF US CAN FIX THIS. IT’S GOING TO TAKE ALL OF US!

We are using every means possible,

( SHORT OF ACTUAL VIOLENCE, AS WE STILL FEEL THIS SHOULD AND CAN BE PUSHED BACK THE RIGHT AND LEGAL WAY !)

in organizing a legal stand with the Constitution as our primary weapon,

as we take a stand against this planned takeover and enslavement of our Country by the true domestic threat from with-in.

It breaks my heart that we seem to have NOBODY in our Government System strong enough,

or willing enough,

to stand up and challenge (the Obama) Regime and their Presidential Exceutive Takeover of our once free Country.

PLEASE tell me that we are not going to actually have to go into a full blown Revolution,

in order regain the Government our Forefathers had originally designed for us, are we??

This is indeed a sad, sad, time in our History that The United States of America HAS become The Enslaved States of America.

May our children and their children forgive us for allowing this to happen !}~~~Xaniel777

” It turns my stomach to see this smug treasonous

President wave like everything’s still perfect in

the Land Of The Once Free.”~~~Xaniel777 

RT News  Although the Senate voted against cybersecurity legislation demanding newregulations in cyberspace, President Obama may issue an executive order to have the bill implemented without the approval of Congress.

Regardless of Congressional rejection, Obama claims “we can’t wait,” and may issue an executive order forcing companies to implement new cybersecurity standards.

Opponents of the bill have already accused the president of making ‘ illegal power grabs ‘ with some of his previous executive actions.

To date, he has issued more than 130.

“Moving forward, the President is determined to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyber threats and we will do that,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney in an e-mail to Washington newspaper The Hill.

The bill Senate voted down would require private companies and the government to share information regarding cybersecurity threats.

It would also require better protection of critical pieces of infrastructure, like water filtration facilities and the power grid, and would give the Department of Homeland Security the authority to lead the cybersecurity team.

President Obama has long been urging Congress to pass the Cybersecurity Act of 2012, which was introduced by Senators Joe Lieberman (I-CT) and Susan Collins (R-ME).

Last year, the White House proposed its own cybersecurity legislation, presenting more than 100 briefings on the issue and testifying at 17 Congressional hearings.

Last month, an Obama op-ed in the Wall Street Journal emphasized the need for greater cybersecurity legislation.

The president painted a picture of how America’s enemies could cause widespread destruction without setting foot in the US.

All it takes, Obama said, is hackers who can break through private companies’ online security.

“In a future conflict, an adversary unable to match our military supremacy on the battlefield might seek to exploit our computer vulnerabilities at home,he wrote. “Taking down vital banking systems could trigger a financial crisis. The lack of clean water or functioning hospitals could spark a public health emergency. And as we’ve seen in past blackouts, the loss of electricity can bring businesses, cities and entire regions to a standstill.”

But those who voted against the bill said the legislation would burden businesses with unnecessary and ineffective regulations.

Only 52 Senators voted for the bill.

And rather than wait for Congress to come to an agreement on cybersecurity, Obama could make a move that would enrage the bill’s opponents, bypassing the Senate’s decision and implementing the new laws without approval.

Even Senator Collins, one of the bill’s creators, who has been fiercely lobbying for its support, is against the principle of forcefully implementing it.

I’m not for doing by executive order what should be done by legislation,” she said.

Summer stalemate continues in preparation for autumn regime changes

 

 

From Benjamin Fulford’s Blog

By Benjamin Fulford – August 08, 2012

War and rumors of war continue to be promoted by terrorist states like the US, Israel and their secret ally Iran as the desperate criminal cabal that seized power in the West continues to hope they can trigger World War 3 and thus avoid bankruptcy.

There are also continuing rumors of horrific new terrorist attacks by the cabal and their “Al CIA da” subsidiary (a nuclear attack on London being one possibility) in a desperate attempt to implement their plan for a fascist New World Order world government.

Their desperation and cynicism has reached the point that corporate propaganda media outlets do not even seem to notice as they report their governments are fighting “Al Qaeda” in Afghanistan even as they finance it in Syria and Libya.

The 150 nations BRICS alliance, for its part, continues to refuse to support terrorist financing groups like the European Central Bank and the Federal Reserve Board and is instead promoting the universal human goals of peaceful, environmentally friendly development.  

Under the surface, meanwhile, power struggles continue in preparation for regime changes in China, the US and the EU this fall.

Das Papieren, Bitte!  German for, “Hand over your papers!”

 

From Half Past Human.com

By Clif High – August 06, 2012

It happened to me today; I ran smack into the fascistic wall being built around the USA, formerly known as the ‘land of the free’.

While ALL of the patriotic rhetoric of my youth is suspect, I had not anticipated ever running into the dreaded ‘ papers check ‘…that in the old Nazi movies begins with the phrase:

Das papierien, bitte!

Of course, they do say, ‘please’, but it is a command nonetheless. “Hand over your papers!”.

In this instance is was a drivers license that was demanded, but the sense is the same….das paperien, bitte!

Get used to it.

For the remaining months that government has (above ground), at least here in the former land of the free range deluded patriot, the screws are tightening down all over.

Government is force.

But, they can never actually afford to use force against more than a few citizens at a time without risking the ‘ Anaheim response ‘ in which local residents battle police over brutal tactics being applied en masse, otherwise known as rebellion, or even worse, revolution.

You see, they, the government HAS to be sneaky about their use of force, usually targeting people that they make into object lessons in order to coerce the rest of us into staying under control.

But that is breaking down.

Probably due to teevee and the baby boom generation and beyond being desensitized to threats as a result of warped brains, but the cause is actually not pertinent.

Government is scared.

The systems of control are breaking down, so the natural response of the control freak is to try to grasp harder than ever as they feel the control leaking from their fingers… which leads inevitably to:

Das papierien, bitte!

So there I was, innocently minding my own business when the demand came.

First I could not believe it….here, in America? Demands for identity papers?

“Who asks ?” I ask?

Thurston County (state of Washington, Pacific Northwest USA) commissioners demand, came the response.

My own county commissioners?!?

Now they are fascists! It was simply inconceivable!

While I had, of course, prepared myself for the inevitable intrusion of federal fascism into my life these remaining 8/eight months, it had never, in my wildest imaginings, occurred to me that it would be my own county commissioners who would sell my body to FEMA for harvest.

But that is where we are heading. No doubt.

It has to do with the level of oppression that the government HAS to use in order to maintain control.

You see, the more desperate (and dangerous) they get, the more that the control freak becomes obsessed with minutia and triviality.

As a military brat in the American Zone of Occupation in Southern Germany in the 1960’s, I had occasion to reside in an apartment building that also housed an aged SS Colonel.

We eventually got to talking over time, and one thing he said has always stuck with me.

The spark of the conversation had been when I, rather rudely, asked him why he had been a Nazi?

Didn’t he know they were the bad guys?

His response was unexpected in that he told me he joined the SS to save his life and that of his wife.

“You see”, he said, “we had always planned to get out of Hitler’s vision, but we left it too late.”

He went on to say that one day it dawned on him just how late it was when he went to buy ‘ postage coupons ‘ (stamps to us), only to find that he had to sign his name on a government form to send a letter outside the country.

It was then that he decided to join the Nazi apparatus as a safety measure.

His thinking being that he (and his wife) would then be part of  ‘ them ‘, rather than ‘ against them ‘.

“Und so kinder”, he said to me, “when you see that they want your papers to mail a letter, it is too late to get out.”

Today i had the same shocking insight when they demanded my papers to dump my trash at the local landfill.

I shit you not. Some nutter fascist Thurston County commissioner (acting for Agenda 21 at the local level here in WA State) has decided that before citizens can throw away their trash, or recycling, they must present their identity papers.

So, I had, on the spot, early on a Monday morning, after a terrible weekend with no sleep, to decide how to respond.

The way my brain saw it at the time, there were 3/three basic options: I could comply (nope, that did not feel right);

or I could fight it, which of course meant NOT dumping the trash,

and probably would lead to me being involved with politics trying to defeat the retarded politician county commissioner dumb enough to put his name to this ‘ papers to dump trash policy ‘, and, also given the touchy state of the militarized police…..;

or, option 3.

It was option 3 that I chose….to scam the system.

Actually I was pretty proud of my poor brain for coming up with it…but what I did was to claim ‘ federal protected class ‘ status….

“sorry, I am illegal, and have no driver’s license”.

The idea was to have one part of the system now dealing with another.

“ok”, said the Land Fill employee. “But I have to fill in something here to let your truck get by, so what’s your name?”.

“Barak Rodrigues”.

He did not bat an eye, and typed it in.

“Address?” he asked.

“Don’t got one. Homeless”.

“Ok, fine” he said, and passed my truck on through.

Today’s drive to the landfill changed everything about the USA for me.

Das papierien, bitte!

Oh, and if you had been wondering….now we know…it is too late to get out.

SHTF Plan - When The Shit Hits the Fan, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You - Preparedness, Planning, News, and Commentary

From SHTFplan

Mac Slavo – August 6th, 2012
SHTFplan.com

Full-scale depopulation procedures have been implemented as Population Reduction, Geoengineering, Land Grabs, and Criminal Banking Scams rule the populace.

All human activity will soon be under surveillance and the remaining world population of 1 Billion will exist in Mega-Cities controlled by oligarchs tracking the RFID Chipped Population – the “Useless Eaters” as the elite have termed us.

The future of humanity will be a world in which oligarchs decide who lives and who dies.

This Winter, The Intel Hub’s Shepard Ambellas and renowned filmmaker Jason Bermas (9/11 Loose Change, Fabled Enemies, and The Invisible Empire) join forces to expose the elite’s plans for taking control of every aspect of our lives.

WATCH Shade: The Motion Picture (Official Movie Trailer):

Website: http://www.shadethemotionpicture.com

With appearances from leading contrarian thinkers and alternative media personalities that include Webster Tarpley, Alex Jones, Dan Dicks, and Mark Dice, Shade promises to take us to the very top of the world’s power infrastructure.

Those at the top of this pyramid quite literally decide who lives and who dies on planet earth, as they strive maintain complete control of what we eat, how we transact, where we travel, who we communicate with, and who goes to war and when.

Shot from multiple locations such as Maui Hawaii, Chantilly Virginia, several locations in Arizona, Texas, and more, the filmmakers stop at nothing to bring you the compelling details of an overarching diabolic agenda.

This agenda – Does not involve you, or your family.

In fact it involves the systematic extermination of 90% of the earth’s population.

The “Useless Eaters”

The bottom line is, that if you’re not privy to the agenda of the elite, then you are one of the “useless eaters” that is and always has been nothing more than a means to an end.

The America and Israel Global War Project: “Mad Dog” Leaders Threaten Humanity

 

From Global Research.ca

by Stephen Lendman – August 05, 2012

A common thread defines Obama and Netanyahu. Their agenda threatens humanity. Both head modern-day Spartas.

Israel is very much involved in Washington’s war on Syria. At issue is destroying another independent state, murdering thousands, planning more wars, and threatening the entire region and beyond.

Iran is next in line. Saber rattling combines with war by other means. It includes sanctions, subversion, instability, cyberwar, targeted assassinations, other disruptive actions, and relentless scoundrel media vilification and fearmongering.

On August 3,

 

Haaretz headlined “King Bibi in trouble.” Poll numbers show a 60% disapproval rating. It’s not for institutionalized militarism and belligerence. It’s about new budget cuts hardening neoliberal harshness.

Most Israelis are fed up with what harms their well-being. Their narrow definition omits likely blowback from regional wars and more planned. Conflict rages cross border in Syria. If attacked, Hezbollah can respond in kind.

Key is whether Israel plans bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities. Doing so is lawless, madness, and self-destructive. Nonetheless, heated rhetoric suggests it’s possible.

On August 2,

 

Haaretz headlined “Ex-Mossad chief said what should be clear to everyone – Israel has never been so close to attacking Iran,” saying:

According to Ephraim Halevy, “if I were an Iranian, I would be very worried about the Israeli talk about a possible attack, because Israel’s threats sound serious and credible to me.”

No longer publicly active, he may or may not know what’s planned. Haaretz said he’s not “another establishment stooge.” Nor is he “gung-ho.”

He’s wise enough not to reveal state secrets. Perhaps he commented because someone asked. Once a Mossad insider, always one. Iranian officials will parse his comments carefully.

On August 1, Mossad-connected

 

DEBKAfile (DF) headlined “(Ayatollah Ali) Khamenei Warns Iran’s Top Leaders: WAR IN WEEKS,” saying:

Before Friday, July 27 prayers, he “summoned top Iranian military chiefs for what he called ‘last war council.’ “

DF claims he told them “(w)e’ will be at war within weeks.” Allegedly he ordered high alert readiness, fortifying Iran’s nuclear facilities, and retaliatory responses.

Only high level insiders know Israeli intentions. Saber rattling and inflammatory rhetoric went on for years. It’s heard regularly now. So far, belligerence hasn’t follow bluster. Whether things now are different remains to be seen.

On August 3,

 

Haaretz headlined “As Netanyahu pushes Israel closer to war with Iran, Israelis cannot keep silent,” saying:

“Why aren’t ministers and defense officials standing up right now, when it is still possible, and saying: We will not be a party to this megalomaniacal vision, to this messianic-catastrophic worldview?”

As important is why militarism, belligerence, and denigration of Muslims define Israeli policies. Why is war institutionalized?

Why does a nation treat one-fifth of its people like fifth column threats? Why are non-Jews persecuted? Why do decades of occupation repression continue?

Why do only elitist Jews matter at the expense of all others? Why does a tiny state threaten other regional nations? Why do world leaders permit it? How can any responsible official contemplate catastrophic war if launched?

Haaretz suggests “Netanyahu has a historical mindset (and) outlook under which….Israel is ‘the eternal nation’ and the United States” is just one among many.

In other words, “(w)e are everlasting, we are an eternal people, and they, despite all their strength and power, are merely temporary and ephemeral.”

Megalomania and delusions of grandeur define this type thinking. Past leaders governing this way perished by the same sword they lived by. It always turned out that way.

Tiny Israel is a dot in an ocean of justifiable resentment. One step too far may bite back harder than what Netanyahu and others around him imagine.

His governing style is autocratic, said Haaretz. He thinks he holds Israel’s destiny in his hands. He may end up fiddling while it burns. His hermetic worldview rigidity may end up its undoing.

He’ll take an entire nation and others over a cliff with him. Perhaps he’ll end up like Caligula. Delusions of grandeur and tyrannical harshness got him assassinated. His own Praetorian Guard did him in.

Netanyahu heads Israel’s most extremist ever government. It’s racist, repressive, elitist and fascist. Democracy is more hypocrisy than real.

Hardliners around him share his vision. Most Israelis want peace, not war. They have no say. Their fate hangs in his hands. It’s their country, their security, and their future.

Don’t they understand the consequences of attacking Iran? Have they no sense that “bomb or be bombed” rhetoric is belligerent bombast? Don’t they know destructive policies sometimes follow?

Iran threatens no one. It’s nuclear program is peaceful. Every Israeli and Western leader knows it. Saying otherwise hides dark side intensions.

Why don’t knowledgeable people speak out? Why don’t opposition officials do it? Why don’t they stand up for what’s right? Why don’t they stop this madness before it’s too late?

Have they no sense of the stakes? Don’t they care enough to try? Are loyalty and daily priorities more important than survival? Are millions of Israeli lives and others in the region unimportant?

Why haven’t Israelis protested publicly en masse? Why won’t they act in their own behalf?

Poet Hayyim Bialik (1873 – 1934) once wrote about “with heart’s blood and marrow pay(ing) the price of the blaze.” A century later he’d have had weapons of mass destruction in mind.

A Final Comment

IDF chief of staff General Benny Gantz believes Iran won’t develop nuclear weapons. He’s concerned about launching an attack. He called Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other Iranian leaders rational. They’re not dangerous extremists bent on war.

Netanyahu is mirror opposite. He said governments make policies, not generals. Their job is taking orders and obeying. Other times they’re asked for advice. Prime ministers and cabinet members can accept or reject it.

George Clemenceau once said “(w)ar is too important to be left to the generals.” In Israel, some have more good sense than politicians. The same holds for America. Delusional leaders can’t wait to shed more blood.

Gantz calls unilateral Israeli action ill-conceived. Other current and past IDF generals and intelligence officials share his view. Many in America feel the same way.

Instead of waging wars, preventing them should be prioritized. When leaders able to cause mass destruction behave like delusional mad dogs, stopping them matters most.

CIA Instructions to Media Assets

 

From Real History Archives

This document caused quite a stir when it was discovered in 1977. Dated 4/1/67, and marked “DESTROY WHEN NO LONGER NEEDED”, this document is a stunning testimony to how concerned the CIA was over investigations into the Kennedy assassination. Emphasis has been added to facilitate scanning.

CIA Document #1035-960, marked “PSYCH” for presumably Psychological Warfare Operations, in the division “CS”, the Clandestine Services, sometimes known as the “dirty tricks” department.

RE: Concerning Criticism of the Warren Report

1. Our Concern. From the day of President Kennedy’s assassination on, there has been speculation about the responsibility for his murder. Although this was stemmed for a time by the Warren Commission report, (which appeared at the end of September 1964), various writers have now had time to scan the Commission’s published report and documents for new pretexts for questioning, and there has been a new wave of books and articles criticizing the Commission’s findings. In most cases the critics have speculated as to the existence of some kind of conspiracy, and often they have implied that the Commission itself was involved. Presumably as a result of the increasing challenge to the Warren Commission’s report, a public opinion poll recently indicated that 46% of the American public did not think that Oswald acted alone, while more than half of those polled thought that the Commission had left some questions unresolved. Doubtless polls abroad would show similar, or possibly more adverse results.

2. This trend of opinion is a matter of concern to the U.S. government, including our organization. The members of the Warren Commission were naturally chosen for their integrity, experience and prominence. They represented both major parties, and they and their staff were deliberately drawn from all sections of the country. Just because of the standing of the Commissioners, efforts to impugn their rectitude and wisdom tend to cast doubt on the whole leadership of American society. Moreover, there seems to be an increasing tendency to hint that President Johnson himself, as the one person who might be said to have benefited, was in some way responsible for the assassination. Innuendo of such seriousness affects not only the individual concerned, but also the whole reputation of the American government. Our organization itself is directly involved: among other facts, we contributed information to the investigation. Conspiracy theories have frequently thrown suspicion on our organization, for example by falsely alleging that Lee Harvey Oswald worked for us. The aim of this dispatch is to provide material countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit the circulation of such claims in other countries. Background information is supplied in a classified section and in a number of unclassified attachments.

3. Action. We do not recommend that discussion of the assassination question be initiated where it is not already taking place. Where discussion is active [business] addresses are requested:

a. To discuss the publicity problem with [?] and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors), pointing out that the Warren Commission made as thorough an investigation as humanly possible, that the charges of the critics are without serious foundation, and that further speculative discussion only plays into the hands of the opposition. Point out also that parts of the conspiracy talk appear to be deliberately generated by Communist propagandists. Urge them to use their influence to discourage unfounded and irresponsible speculation.

b. To employ propaganda assets to [negate] and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passing to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories. In the course of discussions of the whole phenomenon of criticism, a useful strategy may be to single out Epstein’s theory for attack, using the attached Fletcher [?] article and Spectator piece for background. (Although Mark Lane’s book is much less convincing that Epstein’s and comes off badly where confronted by knowledgeable critics, it is also much more difficult to answer as a whole, as one becomes lost in a morass of unrelated details.)

4. In private to media discussions not directed at any particular writer, or in attacking publications which may be yet forthcoming, the following arguments should be useful:

a. No significant new evidence has emerged which the Commission did not consider. The assassination is sometimes compared (e.g., by Joachim Joesten and Bertrand Russell) with the Dreyfus case; however, unlike that case, the attack on the Warren Commission have produced no new evidence, no new culprits have been convincingly identified, and there is no agreement among the critics. (A better parallel, though an imperfect one, might be with the Reichstag fire of 1933, which some competent historians (Fritz Tobias, AJ.P. Taylor, D.C. Watt) now believe was set by Vander Lubbe on his own initiative, without acting for either Nazis or Communists; the Nazis tried to pin the blame on the Communists, but the latter have been more successful in convincing the world that the Nazis were to blame.) b. Critics usually overvalue particular items and ignore others. They tend to place more emphasis on the recollections of individual witnesses (which are less reliable and more divergent–and hence offer more hand-holds for criticism) and less on ballistics, autopsy, and photographic evidence. A close examination of the Commission’s records will usually show that the conflicting eyewitness accounts are quoted out of context, or were discarded by the Commission for good and sufficient reason.

c. Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States, esp. since informants could expect to receive large royalties, etc. Note that Robert Kennedy, Attorney General at the time and John F. Kennedy’s brother, would be the last man to overlook or conceal any conspiracy. And as one reviewer pointed out, Congressman Gerald R. Ford would hardly have held his tongue for the sake of the Democratic administration, and Senator Russell would have had every political interest in exposing any misdeeds on the part of Chief Justice Warren. A conspirator moreover would hardly choose a location for a shooting where so much depended on conditions beyond his control: the route, the speed of the cars, the moving target, the risk that the assassin would be discovered. A group of wealthy conspirators could have arranged much more secure conditions.

d. Critics have often been enticed by a form of intellectual pride: they light on some theory and fall in love with it; they also scoff at the Commission because it did not always answer every question with a flat decision one way or the other. Actually, the make-up of the Commission and its staff was an excellent safeguard against over-commitment to any one theory, or against the illicit transformation of probabilities into certainties.

e. Oswald would not have been any sensible person’s choice for a co-conspirator. He was a “loner,” mixed up, of questionable reliability and an unknown quantity to any professional intelligence service. [Archivist’s note: This claim is demonstrably untrue with the latest file releases. The CIA had an operational interest in Oswald less than a month before the assassination. Source: Oswald and the CIA, John Newman and newly released files from the National Archives.]

f. As to charges that the Commission’s report was a rush job, it emerged three months after the deadline originally set. But to the degree that the Commission tried to speed up its reporting, this was largely due to the pressure ofirresponsible speculation already appearing, in some cases coming from the same critics who, refusing to admit their errors, are now putting out new criticisms.

g. Such vague accusations as that “more than ten people have died mysteriously” can always be explained in some natural way e.g.: the individuals concerned have for the most part died of natural causes; the Commission staff questioned 418 witnesses (the FBI interviewed far more people, conduction 25,000 interviews and re interviews), and in such a large group, a certain number of deaths are to be expected. (When Penn Jones, one of the originators of the “ten mysterious deaths” line, appeared on television, it emerged that two of the deaths on his list were from heart attacks, one from cancer, one was from a head-on collision on a bridge, and one occurred when a driver drifted into a bridge abutment.)

5. Where possible, counter speculation by encouraging reference to the Commission’s Report itself. Open-minded foreign readers should still be impressed by the care, thoroughness, objectivity and speed with which the Commission worked. Reviewers of other books might be encouraged to add to their account the idea that, checking back with the report itself, they found it far superior to the work of its critics.
