At this stage in the campaign, the claim that Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are virtually identical in every way can scarcely be denied. From their positions on healthcare, the implementation of economic austerity, and perpetual warfare, the Presidential candidate and the President himself are mirror images of one another with the minute exception of the political presentation of those polices and the much-exploited physical differences hyped by the media.

However, while Obama’s expansion of war and wholesale slaughter is accomplished through deceit and other covert forms of treachery, Mitt Romney’s war psychosis is manifested much more openly. As I detailed in my last article, “Open War Policy Revealed by Romney’s NeoCon Advisers,” Romney’s sprint toward a third world war of a potentially thermonuclear variety could scarcely be more clear, quite the rarity for Romney.

With this in mind, I have written two articles dealing with Romney’s foreign policy advisers and their own ideological leanings. After all, regardless of the potential resting in the office of the President, the fact is that a President’s inner circle of advisers, as well as his cabinet, are, generally speaking, the foot soldiers in whatever foreign entanglements the country is set to find itself in.

Unsurprisingly, Romney’s foreign policy team is made up mainly of Neo-Cons left over from the boy Bush Administration, as well as other raving war hawks, Zionists, and imperialists.

In this regard, I encourage the reader to access my articles, “Open War Policy Revealed by Romney’s NeoCon Advisers,” (linked above) “Romney’s Foreign Policy Advisers Exposed As Globalists,” and “Mitt Romney’s 13 Globalist ‘Working Groups’ Exposed” for a summary of these individuals and their organizational memberships, affiliations, and past careers.

Yet, out of all the advisers listed as part of Romney’s foreign policy team, one member, Dov Zakheim, bears special notice, not least of which because he is considered to be the top adviser working amongst the publicly acknowledged branch of the team.

Zakheim also bears special mention because of his special place in 9/11 NeoCon fame, although his role in the events of that day are rarely discussed.

As many may be aware of, on September 10, 2001, Pentagon Chief and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference where he announced that 2.3 trillion dollars had simply gone missing from the Pentagon. Such an announcement would have been a major scandal had it not been for the tragic events that unfolded the next day, which forever overshadowed the missing money – yet another fortunate coincidence for a group of individuals who experienced an unbelievable amount of fortunate circumstances on or around 9/11.

9/10, interestingly enough, as Veterans Today reports, “was the first and last time that any significant political figure has ever chosen to announce major bad news on a Monday.” While this author could not confirm if this statement is actually true, VT is correct in the point that it is highly irregular behavior to announce information that would put the reigning administration in a bad light on a Monday, the biggest news day of the week. It is well known both in the halls of government and the mainstream media that evidence of scandals are always revealed on Fridays (particularly the evenings) so that the story gets lost over the weekend of partying, vacationing, entertainment, and varied schedules of news consumption amongst the general public. Thus, Rumsfeld’s announcement was an abrupt departure from public relations tradition.

The relevant factor in this context is that Dov Zakheim was the Comptroller of the Pentagon during the period that this enormous sum of money went missing. (It should be noted that Susan Lindauer, CIA whistleblower, claims the sum was actually 9.1 trillion dollars.)

Of course, the missing money was being tracked. Certainly Rumsfeld and Zakheim would not announce the loss of trillions of dollars without simultaneously announcing that an investigation was already underway.

However, on 9/11, yet another fortunate coincidence (from the standpoint of those individuals responsible for the missing $2 trillion) occurred. According to Barbara Honegger, a retired Senior Military Affairs Journalist at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterrey, California, the accountants who were working on uncovering the evaporated trillions were killed in the attack on the Pentagon. To this writer’s knowledge, the missing money has never officially been found.

The events surrounding 9/11 which indicate the falsity of the official story can, in no way, be summed up in this article. However, one more interesting and coincidental circumstance in relation to the events of 9/11 and Dov Zakheim must be mentioned.

Before becoming Pentagon Comptroller, Zakheim was CEO of System Planning Corporation International (SPC International), a company which specializes in the development, manufacture, and production of defense technology for the US Military and US Government as well as other major corporations. The “About SPC” section of the SPC website states:

Our customer base includes federal, state and local government agencies, major defense contractors, architectural and engineering firms, and other commercial enterprises. These clients’ demands have always been diverse, and as a result SPC boasts tremendous capabilities across many disciplines.

Furthermore, the site states:

Initially, SPC staff focused on research and studies in the areas of arms control; nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare; advanced technologies; ballistic missile defense; and continuity of government. Soon, SPC branched into the manufacture of electronic systems, prototyping and manufacturing radar systems to precisely measure the radar cross section (RCS) of the new generation of stealth platforms. As a result of this work, SPC emerged as a major leader in the low-observables community.

SPC is not just one more subsidiary wing of DARPA, nor is it merely an enterprising corporation with lucrative government contracts and connections. SPC boasts on its own website of having improved

radar measurement technologies for U.S. stealth bombers; created the first patented cargo tracking device—GlobalTrak®—for the intermodal trade industry; assessed emergency preparedness plans across the nation; hosted State Department events for ambassadors and world leaders; and provided staffing support and technical expertise for DARPA programs and system/technology offices.

The website lists several areas of expertise taken up by SPC including, Advanced Systems Technology, Air Warfare Systems, Conference and Event Planning, Creative Solutions, Cyber Security, Fire, EMS, and Emergency Preparedness, Program Management, Radar and Measurement Technology, Security Design and Integration, and Supply Chain Security.

Of special interest to this topic of conversation, however, is a little known system under the “Radar and Measurement Technology” classification known as the Flight Termination System (FTS). The FTS, designed by SPC’s Radar Physics Group, is a system which is used to destroy target drones or other aircraft in the event of a malfunction or a miss during military or weaponry testing. The FTS is, essentially, a war game technology that is designed to act as a backup in the event of the failure of the weapons being tested. Simply put, if the weapon is unable to shoot down the aircraft or drone, or if there is a reason why the aircraft cannot be landed safely in this event, the FTS would be in place to bring that craft down so as not to allow an off-site disaster resulting from the aircraft.

Yet the FTS is only one component of the technology as its main function is to terminate the aircraft. The FTS also consists of the Command Transmitter System (CTS) which functions as a remote controlling technology.

The SPC website describes the CTS as providing “remote control and flight termination functions through a fully-redundant self-contained solid-state system . . . . .”

Even more so, the FTS contains components that involve “custom control, interface, and monitoring subsystems.”

Thus, the FTS is a fully developed system that is capable of monitoring, remote controlling, interacting, and terminating aircraft. Not only that, but the system can be used on commercial and military jets in addition to the standard drone aircraft.

Some description of the FTS, its capabilities, and tests conducted on it can be found in the report entitled, “Enhanced Flight Termination Systems Study” produced by the Range Commanders Council, posted on the Army’s own .mil website.

In addition, as the 9/11-related encyclopedic website states, the FTS can be used on a wide range of aircraft which include large passenger jets.

According to, documents formerly posted on the SPC website confirmed that both Eglin Air Force Base and Florida-MacDill Air Force Base have been official customers of SPC and the FTS technology. Florida-Macdill, as claimed by 911Review, was part of a Boeing/Pentagon tanker lease agreement which saw at least 32 Boeing 767 aircraft transferred to the US Military.

As stated by 911Review, “The Boeing lease deal involved the replacement of the aging KC-135 tanker fleet with these smaller, more efficient Boeing 767s that were to be leased by Dov Zakheim’s group.” Thus, there is now the suggestion that the US military was in possession of Boeing 767 aircraft outfitted with the FTS/CTS technology, manufactured by Zakheim’s company.

Also related to the SPC/Zakheim/9/11 connection is the fact that the organization contracted to aid and oversee the investigation into the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, TRIDATA Corporation, is actually subsidiary of SPC. Thus, TRIDATA would have gained significant knowledge of the makeup, structure, and other relevant information to use in the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center in 2001.

In the end, we have an individual currently serving as a top foreign policy advisor to a serious presidential candidate who was also a member of the Project For A New American Century, the organization that, one year before 9/11, lamented the absence of a “new Pearl Harbor” in order to further their goals for an America more to their liking.

This same individual was then the Comptroller of the Pentagon when 2.3 trillion dollars came up missing, where the investigators appointed to sort out the discrepancy were killed on 9/11, and the story itself was announced in a very questionable manner the day before one of the largest events in American history.

Furthermore, this individual was the former CEO (and thus had very close ties) to a Corporation which itself is closely related to the shadow government, military-industrial complex, and intelligence agencies and that also developed and produced technology that could control and terminate with drones and civilian jet planes, a technology which many revisionist historians have suggested was used to guide the planes into the World Trade Center 1 and 2. This individual, through his relationship to SPC and TRIDATA, would also have access to pertinent information regarding the World Trade Center which would have been necessary in order to execute the controlled demolition that took place on 9/11.

It should also be mentioned that Zakheim was also a Senior Vice President at Booz Allen Hamilton, a firm notorious for its connections to the US Intelligence community. Based in McLean, Virginia, BAH has an official global staff of around 18,000 people and has numerous connections with the major intelligence agencies such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), National GeoSpatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), National Security Agency (NSA), National Counterterrorism Center, the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and most of the Pentagon’s combatant centers. These, of course, are only the publicly admitted official connections that have made their way into the light. We can only assume that BAH is even more connected than they are letting on. In fact, it is safe to assume that BAH is nothing more than a wing of the American Intelligence community.

Regardless, to have, at one time, assumed a position of such importance in a company so connected to domestic and international intelligence, would no doubt be considered an enormous advantage if one were planning a false flag attack on the scale of 9/11.

Anyone with this many ties to such a horrific crime and acts of outright treason must be, at the very least, viewed with much skepticism in terms of his true motives. In addition, any candidate who requests or accepts Zakheim’s advice and management in his run for the Presidency or, even more worrisome, his Cabinet, must likewise be subjected to intense scrutiny and criticism.
