    Palin’s husband refuses to testify in probe

    Palin’s husband refuses to testify in probe

    By MATT VOLZ, Associated Press Writer

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s husband has refused to testify in the investigation of his wife’s alleged abuse of power, and a key lawmaker said Thursday that uncooperative witnesses are effectively sidetracking the probe until after Election Day.

    Todd Palin, who participates in state business in person or by e-mail, was among 13 people subpoenaed by the Alaska Legislature. McCain-Palin presidential campaign spokesman Ed O’Callaghan announced Thursday that Todd Palin would not appear, because he no longer believes the Legislature’s investigation is legitimate.

    Sarah Palin initially welcomed the investigation of accusations that she dismissed the state’s public safety commissioner because he refused to fire her ex-brother-in-law, a state trooper. “Hold me accountable,” she said.

    But she has increasingly opposed it since Republican presidential candidate John McCain tapped her as his running mate. The McCain campaign dispatched a legal team to Alaska including O’Callaghan, a former top U.S. terrorism prosecutor from New York to bolster Palin’s local lawyer.

    Earlier this week, Alaska Attorney General Talis Colberg said the governor, who was not subpoenaed, declined to participate in the investigation and said Palin administration employees who have been subpoenaed would not appear.

    State Sen. Bill Wielechowski, a Democrat, said the McCain campaign is doing all it can to prevent the Legislature from completing a report on whether the GOP’s vice presidential nominee abused her power as governor.

    Wielechowski, a member of the panel that summoned the witnesses, told The Associated Press that the witnesses can avoid testifying for months without penalty and that court action to force them to appear sooner is unlikely.

    Palin fired Walt Monegan in July. It later emerged that Palin, her husband, Todd, and several high-level staffers had contacted Monegan about state trooper Mike Wooten. Palin maintains she fired Monegan over budget disagreements, not because he wouldn’t dismiss her former brother-in-law.

    Wooten had gone through a nasty divorce from Palin’s sister before Palin became governor. While Monegan says no one from the administration ever told him directly to fire Wooten, he says their repeated contacts made it clear they wanted Wooten gone.

    Alaska Senate President Lyda Green, a Republican foe of Palin, said Wednesday that the investigation is still on track.

    “The original purpose of the investigation was to bring out the truth. Nothing has changed,” she said.

    Without the testimony, the retired prosecutor hired to head the investigation could still release a report in October as scheduled, based on the evidence he’s already gathered. As of Thursday, Steven Branchflower had interviewed or deposed 17 of the 33 people he had identified as potential witnesses in the probe.

    The Legislature does not have the leverage to compel any witness to testify before Nov. 4, said Wielechowski, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    Wielechowski said he did not know whether Branchflower has enough material for a complete and fair report with so few witnesses. But he said delaying the probe, which began as a bipartisan effort, would only politicize the matter more.

    “It would be to appease the McCain camp,” Wielechowski said. “They’re doing everything they can to delay.”

    Ignoring a legislative subpoena is punishable by a fine up to $500 and up to six months in jail under Alaska law. But courts are reluctant to intervene in legislative matters and the full Legislature must be in session to bring contempt charges, Wielechowski said. The Legislature is not scheduled to convene until January.

    Palin’s Telling Freudian Slip

    Somebody please tell Sarah Palin that she is running for vice president, not for president.

    At a recent rally, she referred to what she hopes will be the “Palin and McCain administration.”

    I hope she ran the new order of the ticket past John before going public with it…

    But then Palin can be excused for aiming for the presidency, and refusing to bother with the vice presidency. After all, not so long ago, she had no idea what the vice president does:

    Europe: Target of Terror

    The Dangerous Game of the Secret Services

    Residenz Verlag (St. Poelten/Vienna), September 2008 , 344 p., 21.90 Euro

    On Sale since 10th September 2008, the book is already sold out and a
    second edition is being printed.


    Berlin daily JUNGE WELT wrote: “A polit thriller par excellence”

    Willy Wimmer, member of German parliament (CDU), said: ,,I wished this
    book got in the hand of every member of our parliament.”


    Europe in the crosshairs of terrorists: Following the bomb attacks in
    Madrid (March 2004) and London (July 2005), security agencies of
    various countries have to raise alarms on an almost regular basis.

    Legions of police and military forces had to protect the Olympic Games
    in Greece, the FIFA World Cup in Germany and the European Football
    Championship in Austria and Switzerland, and for many leading
    politicians, an Islamist dirty bomb attack is only a matter of time.

    A closer look, however, reveals that Western double agents played
    important roles in all attempted or conducted attacks on the European
    continent. Islamic fundamentalism has become reality; its terrorist
    potential, however, is fostered mainly by US-American and British
    secret services who try to drag Europe deeper and deeper into their
    worldwide war. The threat of Al-Qaeda serves to justify the countries’
    growing intrusion into people’s privacy. The total surveillance state
    (as devised in George Orwell’s 1984) is no longer a horrible utopia,
    but a governmental program – at least in Germany.


    Apocalypse Now
    “Lying with the truth” (Adorno): The shrill warnings of our
    politicians against the ultimate attack bear both propaganda and

    The Al-Qaeda Phantom
    Osama bin Laden’s notorious organisation is an invention of US foreign
    policy. Leading figures, including the alleged second man Ayman
    al-Zawahiri, are in fact double agents.

    Operation Gladio
    In the Cold War era, NATO installed secret units which were also
    involved in attacks in Italy (Bologna, Brescia) and Germany
    (Oktoberfest in Munich).

    Operation Balkans
    In the wars following the disintegration of Yugoslavia, US
    intelligence and Jihadists joined their forces against the Serbs. The
    “holy warriors” of this joint venture were involved in almost every
    attack or attempted attack on European soil.

    Hamburg: Double Atta
    The September 11, 2001 attacks were allegedly planned in Hamburg. At
    that point, however, the terrorist cell in the city’s Harburg district
    had already been under observation for years. Here, the group’s
    alleged leader, Muhammed Atta, had a look-alike before 9/11.

    Madrid: Traces of Dynamite
    Veterans of the Bosnian war played an essential role in the train
    bombings on March 11, 2004. Spies of the Spanish secret service had
    contributed the dynamite.

    London: MI6 and Dr. No
    The man pulling the strings behind the attack on London’s public
    transport network on July 7, 2005 was Haroon Rashid Aswat. In the
    1990s he supported the Kosovo-Albanian guerrilla group UCK on behalf
    of MI6.

    Milan: An Agent Quits
    At the beginning of 2003, the CIA kidnapped radical Imam Abu Omar in
    broad daylight and deported him to the Ramstein military base in
    Germany and from there to a torture prison in Afghanistan – an act of
    revenge in an ugly war among allies. The preacher had been spying for
    the US in Albania and wanted to quit. In arresting him the US secret
    service also prevented the Italian police from accessing a bigger
    Islamist underground network.

    Cologne: The Ballack Bomber
    In the summer of 2006 police found a bomb suitcase at Cologne main
    station. The two alleged assassins were from Lebanon, which was about
    to become the next place of action in the German Bundeswehr’s fight
    against international terrorism. The two assassin’s mentor was a
    member of US-funded Sunni group Fatah al-Islam; he was killed by the
    Lebanese army before the suitcase bomber trial began.

    Ulm: The German 9/11?
    An alleged mega-attack could be thwarted in September 2007. The three
    terrorists were led by a convert from the German city of Ulm who had
    been trained in praying and bomb constructing by an agent of the
    German State Security.

    Istanbul: Whisky and Koran
    Louai Sakra is said to have been involved in attacks on Western
    institutions in Istanbul. He confessed to haive trained the 9/11
    suicide bombers. After his arrest, he admitted to enjoying alcohol,
    pork meat – and working for three secret services.

    Vienna: All Beginnings Are Difficult
    Construing something like an “Austrian branch of Al-Qaeda” is a tough
    task. Some public servants still try their best.

    Digital Fascism
    Increasingly radical suggestions for the protection of countries
    (complete video surveillance, access to private computers for
    authorities, secret data police, internment camps, preventive killing)
    are a serious threat to democracy. They way to this hell is paved by
    inside jobs of the secret services.

    The author

    Jürgen Elsässer wrote more than a dozen books, mainly on geopolitcs.
    Licensed editions available in French, Italian, Japanese, Serbian,
    Turkish and Polish.

    His book “How Jihad came to Europe. Jihadists and intelligence on the
    Balkans” (published in 2005 by NP-Buch, St. Pölten) also came out in
    France, Poland, Turkey and Serbia. A critic of Deutschlandfunk stated:
    “Such revelations really get under your skin. Thanks to Jürgen
    Elsässer, who researched into this topic for almost ten years, all
    these facts are now collected in a comprehensible, clear book. It
    should really make international headlines and cause a big stir. And
    most of all it should encourage us to question our sacrosanct
    political networks and taboos.” France’s minister of the interior
    Jean-Pierre Chevenement called this book a ” gold mine full of

    The extensive insights and contacts the author gathered while working
    for the parliamentary control commission for the intelligence service
    BND also helped him in the writing of this book. Moreover, lawyers and
    other parties involved in the German Islamist trials contributed
    valuable information.
