Star's Dad Joins Accused Nazi, Fraudster in Extradition Fight

SYDNEY (AFP)—The father of Oscar-nominated Hollywood actress Michelle Williams joined an accused Nazi war criminal and an alleged fraudster Wednesday in a combined bid to prevent their extradition from Australia.

Stock market high-flyer Larry Williams, 65, whose daughter was nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in the 2005 film “Brokeback Mountain,” is wanted in the United States on tax evasion charges.

Although their cases are unrelated, all three argue that their extraditions are unlawful because they were ordered by a magistrate.

Their lawyer argues that magistrates do not have the authority to hear extradition applications unless state parliaments pass legislation giving them such powers.

Williams, a Virgin Islands resident, was arrested while passing through Sydney in May 2006. The US Internal Revenue Service alleges that he evaded more than 1.5 million dollars in tax between 1999 and 2001.

Williams had challenged a decision by Australia’s justice minister to allow a magistrate to rule on his extradition.

Now he has teamed up with Charles Zentai, accused in Hungary of torturing and murdering 18-year-old Jewish man Peter Balazs in Budapest during World War II, and Vincent O’Donoghue, wanted by Irish authorities for allegedly obtaining property by false pretences, to avoid being extradited.

Zentai, who is aged in his 80s and sickly, has denied the allegations brought against him by the international Jewish human rights organization, the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

The trio’s battle landed in Australia’s High Court after they lost appeals in a lower court.

The case continues.

The Sacramento Police Department is developing an unmanned aircraft to be used for surveillance at crime scenes and other emergencies.

The department is seeking approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to operate the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), which will be unveiled Thursday at a press conference, officials said.

The 12-pound aircraft will have the ability to transmit real-time video and infrared images to police officers on the ground and in helicopters, Police Chief Albert Najera said. Officials see the drone as a cost-effective alternative to police helicopters.

Similar devices are being tested in Miami and Houston, but no police departments have put unmanned aircraft into use.

“It’s mind-boggling when we start brainstorming of how we can use it,” Najera said.

“A FOX NEWS CONNECTION TO THE ORLANDO TRIPLE MURDER-SUICIDES”

Ray Cline died in 1996 – not much thought is given to his enormous influence on the present.

Dr. Cline of the Center for Strategic and International Studies was one of the three most important geopolitical strategists in history.

His primary contribution is the realization – founded upon a complex mathematical model – that the United States will not maintain control of the world forever. According to Cline’s math, China and Russia will, at some time in this century, pass the US by and come to dominate the world’s resources.

(See, for instance, Ray S. Cline, World Power Trends and U.S. Foreign Policy for the 1980s, Boulder, Colo.: Westview Press, 1980. Also on quantifying and projecting geopolitical capabilities of states, cf. Karl Deutsch, Analysis of International Relations, Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice Hall, 1968.)

To allay this transfer of power, or at least to dampen its effects, Cline maintained that America needs to maintain control of 17 key points on the globe – not all of the land, sea and air as Nazi geopolitcal strategist Karl Haushofer maintained …

So Bush insisted on war with Iraq – it was inevitable, the core covert agenda written by Dr. Cline – a Neo-Cons’ geopolitical muse. But Iraq is only indirectly critical to American hegemony in the Middle East – the key point of interest in the world is Saudi Arabia and ITS oil supply, not Iraq’s. This is why we maintain an impossible amiable relationship with the Saudis, and turn Iraq next door into an armed camp. In Iraq, the US military is setting itself up as sentry over the region because Dr. Cline did his math …

Cline’s work gave rise to the Project for the New American Century, a CSIS spin-off.

PNAC PUT A HAPPY FACE ON DR. CLINE’S CONCLUSIONS CONCERNING THE MAINTENANCE OF WORLD POWER AS AMERICA UNDERGOES GRADUAL DECLINE.

Here is some background on Dr. Ray Cline, who has determined many of the foreign policy travesties of the Bush administration., and whose immense influence has largely gone unrecognized. He was a seminal figure in the globalization process:

“Professor Cline’s study was undertaken in the wake of Vietnam and the Arab oil shock. It was a period when ‘the U.S. finds itself in a state of markedly diminished influence and strategic confusion.’

“Cline’s model was an attempt to quantify the overall power of 50 nations of the world comprising 90 percent of the world population at the time. The variables measured for each nation were: population, territory, economic capability, military capability, strategic purpose and the will to pursue national strategy.

“Cline’s conclusion was in order to contain the totalitarian threat the U.S. needed to form a limited system of core alliances patterned after the Athenian League. He then proceeded to outline the make up of this new ‘Oceans Alliance’ based on a calculation of perceived power. If it could have been attained the ‘Oceans Alliance’ would have contained 26 nations possessing 70 percent of the perceived power at the time, and thus, would have successfully contained the foe.

“Of course, the development of geopolitical theories did not come to a halt in the 1970s with the ideas of Professor Cline, but rather the development was radically changed by the growth of something called globalization and the end of the cold war. In order to understand the current word scene we must explore, at least briefly, how these events impacted the times. … ”

Allen Dulles with Ray Cline

Ray Steiner Cline was born in 1919. He studied at Harvard University before joining the Office of Strategic Services during the Second World War. In 1944 he was appointed as Chief of Current Intelligence. Later he was sent to China where he worked with John K. Singlaub, Richard Helms, E. Howard Hunt, Mitchell WerBell, Paul Helliwell, Robert Emmett Johnson and Lucien Conein. Others working in China at that time included Tommy Corcoran, Whiting Willauer and William Pawley.

In 1946 Cline was assigned to the Operations Division of the War Department General Staff to write its history. Cline joined the Central Intelligence Bureau in 1949 and eventually became Chief of the Office of National Estimates. He also served in Britain (1951-53) under Brigadier General Thomas Betts. Cline became Chief of station in Taiwan in 1957. A post he held for over four years.

In 1962 Cline was appointed as Deputy Director for Intelligence for the CIA. He became disillusioned with Lyndon B. Johnson and he requested a move from Washington. In 1966 Richard Helms managed to arrange for Clines to become Special Coordinator and Adviser to the Ambassador in the U.S. Embassy in Bonn. From 1969 until his retirement in 1973, he was Director of the Bureau of Intelligence and Research at the Department of State during the Richard Nixon administration.

Cline played an important role in the forming of right-wing organizations such as the World Anti-Communist League and its U.S. chapter, the U.S. Council for World Freedom.

Cline has written several books including including World War Two, War Department (1951), World Power Assessment (1975), CIA: Reality v Myth (1981), Central Intelligence Agency Under Reagan, Bush and Casey (1982), Terrorism: The Soviet Connection (1985), Secrets, Spies and Scholars: The CIA from Roosevelt to Reagan (1986), Western Europe in Soviet Global Strategy (1987), Central Intelligence Agency: A Photographic History (1989), Chiang Ching-Kuo Remembered: The Man and His Political Legacy (1993).

In his book The Power of Nations in the 1990s: A Strategic Assessment (1995): “Americans must at long last face up to geopolitical verities. It is easy to recognize that the United States and the whole Western Hemisphere are outclassed by the great Eurasian-African landmass in terms of territory, economic resources, and population. To maintain access to resources and friends, Americans must have bases abroad, air power, and, above all, the mobility and power of a superior three-ocean navy.”

Cline also served as Vice President of the Veterans of the Office of Strategic Services and was the founder and president of the National Intelligence Study Center and president of the Committee for a Free China.

Ray S. Cline died on 15 March, 1996 in Arlington, Virginia.

Ray Cline was a founding member of the Committee on the Present Danger, an anti-Soviet group that promoted the policy of containment militarism. Cline served on the board of the Consortium for the Study of Intelligence, a decade-long project of the military strategy think tank, the National Strategy Information Center (NSIC). (16) Cline was also a close associate of Maj. Gen. John K. Singlaub and was involved with the activities of Singlaub’s U.S. Council for World Freedom and its parent organization, the World Anti-Communist League.

I have a “conspiracy theory” – Italy, like the United States, is not “on the brink” of fascism – it has been deeply entrenched there (and here) for decades. Those who speak of the “brink” are incompetent researchers, especially those who attempt to fit anti-fascism to the shallow, dissociative, self-censorious rhetoric of the Chomsky-led establishment left. My “theory” suggests that if smug, pleasure-seeking, self-involved proles across the political spectrum do not wise up real fast – and stop acting like ducks hit over the head – Nazi Germany will seem like a putting green. It already does, if one stops trying on new clothes at the mall and starts paying attention to the murder of the world going on all around us. – AC

ROME (Reuters) – A local politician has shocked Italians and Jews by proposing that immigrants be treated with the same severity the Nazis used when they occupied the country.

Giorgio Bettio, a city councillor in the northern city of Treviso, said during a council meeting earlier this week: “With immigrants, we should use the same system the SS used, punish 10 of them for every slight against one of our citizens.”

His comments revived memories of the 1944 Ardeatine Caves massacre, when Hitler ordered that 10 Italians be executed for each of the 33 German soldiers killed in a partisan attack against occupying forces on a Rome street.

Immigration has been a burning issue in the rich northern Veneto region where Treviso is located. Tensions have flared regularly between residents and immigrants, some of them seeking work in the area’s factories and fields.

Bettio, a member of the anti-immigrant Northern League, was roundly condemned by politicians and editorialists.

“Even if he was drunk or his brain short-circuited … he must be condemned without appeal,” Il Giornale, a conservative newspaper which normally supports the Northern League, said in a front-page editorial on Wednesday.

A leader of Rome’s Jewish community, described the comments as “abhorrent”.

Bettio told Reuters by telephone that he was “agitated and mad” when he made the remarks because an Asian immigrant had threatened his mother.

“I certainly made a mistake in citing the SS,” Bettio said, adding that he believed “the whole thing has been blown out of proportion” by national politicians and the media.

While parliamentarians accused Bettio of fomenting racism and asked that the government formally censure him, the episode again put the spotlight on Italy’s immigration problems.

Many Italians, worried by rises in crime rates and unemployment, have called for crackdowns on immigrants.

Social Affairs Minister Paolo Ferrero attacked the Northern League, saying it was using immigrants as scapegoats for social problems “just as the Nazis used Jews as scapegoats for all the social problems of their era”.

Anti-foreign sentiment in the Veneto region has spread fast in response to growing immigration, mainly from eastern Europe.

Some 40 towns in the region recently issued “anti-drifter” ordinances to keep out the poor, homeless and unemployed.

Those rules state that foreigners can apply for residency only if they have a regular job, earn an income of at least 5,000 euros a year per family member, live in an “adequate” home and are not deemed to be “socially dangerous”.

Last month, the mayor of another small town in the Vento region put up provocative billboards advising fellow citizens to emigrate in protest at what he says is the government’s soft policy on immigration.
