Amir Hekmati (28) zum Tode verurteilt

TEHERAN – Er sei der «Zusammenarbeit mit einem feindlichen Land und der Spionage für die CIA» schuldig befunden worden. In Iran Grund genug, den iranisch-stämmigen Amir Mirsai Hekmati zum Tode zu verurteilen.


Iran Captive Amir Hekmati:
Intelligence Analyst for Six3 Systems in 2011
by John Stanton
[This is an update to Iran Should Release Amir Hekmati: A Hapless Product of the US Army’s Human Terrain System]
Amir Hekmati is currently on death row in Iran for allegedly spying for the United States of America. In addition to being a former member of the US Army’s Human Terrain System—and trained as a cultural intelligence collector– he was most recently a former employee of Six3 Systems located in McLean, Virginia. His title with the company was Intelligence Analyst with a US Army contract expiration date of 9/23/2011 and a government contactor ID that was set to expire in November 2011. At one point earlier, Hekmati owned a company called Lucid Linguistics whose purpose was to improve the US military’s ability to communicate in the Middle East.
All of which makes the focus on his links to KUMA LLC video games rather absurd as a lead story pushed by many media outlets around the world.
Six3 Systems is a portfolio company held by GTCR, a private equity company, which does have a former high level CIA employee in its leadership ranks (see below). The GTCR description of Six3 Systems is as follows: “Six3 Systems is a high-end national security and defense intelligence services provider focused on developing and acquiring specialized capabilities that cater to the security intelligence community, Department of Defense and civilian security agencies. This national security and defense company is primarily focused on opportunities involving biometrics security, advanced data interpretation and analysis, cyber security and security intelligence / counterintelligence operations, training and support.”
The CEO of the company is Robert Coleman. His experience includes “…his tenure at the White House National Security Council Crisis Management Center during the Reagan and Bush I administrations, where he developed systems to assist in the collection and dissemination of critical intelligence data. He has additional experience supporting national security efforts while working for SAIC and Raytheon Technical Services.” The Vice President for Business Development is Ryan Wagener who is a former CACI employee. He “…leads all activities associated with pursuing and winning new business in the Intelligence, Defense, and Civilian markets…Wagener brings 16 years of experience in the intelligence and national security federal contracting community.”
Six3 Systems biometrics guru is Mike Zembrzuski. He is “a former commander of the Army’s premier counterintelligence battalion in CONUS, Mike led the Army effort to integrate missions with the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Forces. He is an acknowledged expert in the areas of homeland security and technology protection and has extensive experience at the highest levels of the U.S. Government. His overseas experience is remarkable, with deployments to Afghanistan, Bosnia, Croatia, Guantanamo, and Iraq, along with service throughout Europe.”
Tom Ladd, executive vice president for ISR is the “former CEO of BIT Systems, a leading provider of Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) and Software development solutions to the Intelligence Community and DoD. As one of the three founders of BITS, Mr. Ladd was responsible for the day to day running of BITS including hiring, new business efforts, human resources, accounting, and contracts. Mr. Ladd began his career at CIA as a technical weapon’s analyst. He spent three years supporting weapons inspections and finished his career at CIA as the Branch Chief for the Missile Systems Branch, responsible for the assessment of foreign ballistic and cruise missile capabilities.”

Iran Should Release Amir Hekmati:
A Hapless Product of US Army’s Human Terrain System
by John Stanton
“The poor guy,” said a source.
Nathan Hodge writing for the Wall Street Journal has confirmed that Amir Hekmati worked for BAE System’s as a member of the US Army’s Human Terrain System. “An industry official familiar with his civilian contracting work said he was involved in training for the Human Terrain System, a U.S. Army program to provide cultural advice to military units, before went to work for the Army,” Hodge writes. “Troy Rolan, an Army spokesman, confirmed Mr. Hekmati’s employment there, and said he left the Army in June 2011.
This is disturbing news indeed.
Human Terrain System program manager Colonel Sharon Hamilton announced in public at a Special Operations conference before the 2011 holidays that the Human Terrain System (HTS), Version 2.0, is now officially an intelligence collection activity.  According to some, this leads back to the murky intelligence activities of a former HTS employee named Stephen James “Banger” Lang.
In a recent video, Hamilton discusses HTS 2.0 pointing out that the Office of the Secretary of Defense/Intelligence gave marching orders to HTS leadership to figure out how HTS can evolve to support Special Operations Village Stability Operations, and work other Human Terrain projects within the Pentagon’s Geographic Combatant Commands. The “power of HTS”, she points out in the video, is the ability to determine the how’s and why’s of indigenous populations and feed that information to commanders before negotiation, invasion and occupation. The wording Hamilton uses is interesting as such information, going forward, would have to be gathered covertly, one assumes.
If HTS is going to support USSOCOM, which is not confined to one continent, then the classification level of program participants would have to rise beyond the “secret” level. And in fact, that is happening as CGI/Oberon Associates, now in possession of $227 million (US) to run the program, brings in a bundle of new contractors in the form of sub-primes or individual contractors.
The history of HTS is, quite simply, grotesque and an embarrassment to the US military and the men and women who tried, but failed, to get the program to work. It has been a disaster for Civil Affairs as millions have been burned to make HTS work that should have gone to Civil Affairs units at Fort Bragg and elsewhere.  For years critics of the program—the most vociferous from within HTS—argued that HTS always was an intelligence program run out of US Army TRADOC, G2. There are some 70 articles written over a three year period that report on the program’s failings, deaths, inadequate recruiting and training, allegations of fraud, waste and abuse, murder, hostages, sexual harassment, and more. Those pieces also offer recommendations for improvement. Numerous investigations run by the DOD-IG, the US Army CID, and the US Congress Office of Special Counsel have been conducted on HTS 1.0.
If the Iranians new how screwed up HTS 1.0 was and the inadequate training Hekmati received they would set him free. He is the product of damaged US Army and Pentagon leadership. Give the poor guy a break.

Security Forces Detain German Diplomats near Blast Site in Damascus

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian security forces arrested several individuals who were in a car belonging to the German embassy parked near the site of the yesterday deadly blast in Damascus.

According to FNA dispatches from Damascus, the detainees were trying to provoke anti-regime sentiments after the blast.

The Syrian security forces arrested the passengers of the car immediately.

A suicide blast went off at a busy intersection in the Syrian capital Friday, killing 25 people and wounding at least 46 others.

Syrian state media said an attacker blew himself up near a school and police station in the central district of Midan in Damascus.

A bus carrying policemen appeared to be the target of the attack.

State television showed people carrying human remains, and others shouting the blast was the work of terrorists. The footage also showed damaged vehicles, including what appears to be a police bus with shattered windows and blood in it.

„Soldaten sollten dem Töten ein Ende bereiten“

Der Emir von Katar spricht sich in einem Interview für eine Intervention arabischer Truppen in Syrien aus

Der Emir von Katar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, ist ein mächtiger und einflussreicher Mann. Sein unmittelbares Herrschaftsgebiet die Halbinsel Katar ist weltweit durch ihren Fernsehsender al-Jazeera bekannt. Dass der Emir auf den Fernsehsender Einfluss nimmt, ist längst bekannt, das zeigte sich im letzten Jahr beim Personalwechsel an der Spitze des Senders und das wurde zuvor schon durch WikiLeaks-Dokumente nahegelegt, die den Sender als „außenpolitisches Instrument“ unter der Kontrolle des katarischen Herrscherhauses schildern.

Zuletzt machte die Intervention der Nato-Mächte im Verbund mit arabischen Staaten, darunter Katar, in Libyen auf den Einfluss Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thanis aufmerksam; Katar kam eine Schlüsselrolle bei der Entscheidung der Arabischen Liga zu, die für eine Einmischung zugunsten der Rebellen plädierte – was schließlich ausschlaggebend für das Zustandekommen der UN-Resolution war. Später hieß es, dass Katar den Rebellen Waffen lieferte, „verbotenerweise“, wie eine Schweitzer Zeitung schrieb. In Tunesien soll katarisches Geld der islamistischen Partei Ennahda beim Wahlkampf geholfen haben.

Katar, das legen Berichte des letzten Jahres nahe, baut sich mehr und mehr als regionalerPlayer auf – mit guten, in manchen Fragen engen Beziehungen, zu den USA, deren Luftwaffe auf der Halbinsel eine für den Persischen Golf strategisch wichtige Basis, die Al-Udeid Air Base, nutzen.

Angesichts dessen ist es durchaus bemerkenswert, wenn Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani beim Interview mit dem US-Fernsehsender CBS („60 Minutes“) die Frage „Würden Sie eine Intervention arabischer Staaten in Syrien befürworten?“ damit beantwortet, dass er sich für den Einsatz arabischer Soldaten in Syrien ausspricht:….

US Marine Corps probes ‚Taliban desecration‘ video


Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)


The US military has said it is investigating a video that appears to show a group of Marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters.

The Marine Corps said the actions portrayed in the clip, which was posted online but has not yet been verified, were not consistent with its values.

The footage shows four men in military fatigues appearing to urinate on three apparently lifeless men.

A man’s voice is heard saying: „Have a great day, buddy.“

The men lying on the ground have brown skin, bare feet and are dressed in loose-fitting outfits. One appears to be covered in blood.

The origin of the video is not known, nor is it clear who posted it online.

The men in military fatigues seem aware that they are being filmed.

Pentagon spokesman Capt John Kirby said in a statement: „We are deeply troubled by the video.

„Whoever it is, and whatever the circumstances – which we know is under investigation – it is egregious behaviour and unacceptable for a member of the military.“

Marine Corps headquarters at the Pentagon said in a statement: „The actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps. This matter will be fully investigated.“

A spokesman for the Taliban in Afghanistan told the BBC his group „strongly condemns this action and it is not a human action. It’s a wild action that is too shameful for us to talk about“.

Afghan Member of Parliament Fawzia Kofi said ordinary Afghans, no matter how they felt about the Taliban, would be upset by the video.

„It’s a matter of a human being, respect to a human being,“ she told the BBC.

„I believe that the brutal acts that the Taliban did here during their government and even now is condemned by Afghans. So is watching a brutal act by international forces. We condemn that as well,“ she added.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (Cair) said the video, if verified, showed behaviour that was totally unbecoming of US military personnel.

„It’s a disgusting, immoral video. Something that no military would be proud of and I think the least of which would be the American military,“ the council’s spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told the BBC.

„It’s unbecoming for any military personnel anywhere in the world, and in fact could be in violation of international laws of war, besides being in violation of the American uniform code of military justice.“—-
