The Cho Seung-Hui Video Show

Kurt Nimmo | April 19, 2007


If we are to believe the emerging timeline of events, Cho Seung-Hui killed a woman and her RA in a dorm, went back to his dorm and captured a QuickTime video rant, burned a DVD, trekked to the post office with two 9mm weapons in tow, mailed the DVD, along with photos and miscellaneous writings to NBC, and then marched over to Norris Hall and killed another thirty or so people execution-style.

Add to this a bevy of “experts” on television this evening declaring Cho Seung-Hui to be obviously paranoid schizophrenic. Excuse me, but paranoid schizophrenics, minus medication, have a difficult time stitching two coherent sentences together, let alone methodically engaging in homicide, managing to escape undetected, and then recording thoughts after the fact and conjuring up the wherewithal to send out a press release.

I'm not buying it.

But what I can buy, or at least entertain, is the possibility Cho Seung-Hui is, for lack of a better term, a Manchurian Candidate. Do a Google search on Project Bluebird, the very real CIA experiments in brainwashing and multiple personality engineering.

“BLUEBIRD was approved by the CIA director on April 20, 1950. In August 1951, the Project was renamed ARTICHOKE. BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE included a great deal of work on the creation of amnesia, hypnotic couriers, and the Manchurian Candidate,” writes Colin A. Ross, MD. “ARTICHOKE documents prove that hypnotic couriers functioned effectively in real-life simulations conducted by the CIA in the early 1950's. The degree to which such individuals were used in actual operations is still classified…. BLUEBIRD and ARTICHOKE were administered in a compartmented fashion. The details of the programs were kept secret even form other personnel within the CIA…. The BLUEBIRD/ARTICHOKE materials establish conclusively that full Manchurian Candidates were created and tested successfully by physicians with TOP SECRET clearance from the CIA…. As well as being potential couriers and infiltration agents, the subjects could function in effect as hypnotically controlled cameras. They could enter a room or building, memorize materials quickly, leave the building, and then be amnesic for the entire episode. The memorized material could then be retrieved by a handler using a previously implanted code or signal, without the amnesia being disturbed. Hypnosis was not the mind control doctors' only method for creation of controlled amnesia, however. Drugs, magnetic fields, sound waves, sleep deprivation, solitary confinement, and many other methods were studied under BLUEBIRD and ARTHICHOKE.”

Before you write me off as another tinfoil hat nut case, consider this document, released from the CIA under an FOIA request. In part, the document states:

“Miss [redacted] was instructed (having expressed a fear of firearms) that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken Miss [redacted] (now in a deep hypnotic sleep). Failing this, she would pick up a pistol and fire it at Miss [redacted]. She was instructed that she would not hesitate to “kill” [redacted]. Miss [redacted] carried out these suggestions including firing the (unloaded) gun at [redacted] and then proceeded to fall into a deep sleep. After proper suggestions were made, both were awakened. Miss [redacted] expressed absolute denial that the foregoing sequence had happened.”

Of course, the existence of Project Bluebird and the search for Manchurian Candidate is hardly conclusive evidence Cho Seung-Hui was a programmed murder zombie. On the other hand, the picture painted by the corporate media, that Cho Seung-Hui was simply a mentally deranged and violent loner who stalked women and wrote disjointed plays does not make sense, especially considering his reported proficiency with handguns and the series of methodical tasks he accomplished soon after gunning down two people in cold blood.

Either way, the largest massacre in American history, carried out on the campus of a prestigious engineering school, will certainly jack up the fear ratio—to say nothing of launch yet another salvo at the Bill of Rights, two things certain to please our control freak rulers.

The Virginia Tech massacre: The true massacre is the one we are living

by Larry Chin

Global Research, April 18, 2007

Online Journal


Every bit as grotesque as the Virginia Tech massacre was the spectacle of George W. Bush grandstanding for a photo-op at the convocation for the victims of the tragedy. Bush -- the world’s premier mass murderer and war criminal, a man responsible for the massacre of tens of thousands of people; whose family has been responsible for generations of death all over the world -- should not have been permitted to speak.

Not only is this man not the legitimate president of the United States, he is a brazen criminal, and an enthusiastic proponent of mass violence and slaughter. He is a killer, a murderer.

Not a day goes by that Bush, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and other members of the most openly criminal administration in modern history do not give orders to slaughter, bomb, shoot, torture, and destroy. Tens of thousands of innocent people have been killed, and are being killed as you read this, in Iraq. Three thousand people were murdered in cold blood, on US soil, on 9/11. All of this blood is on Bush-Cheney’s hands. Then there are the many deadly and growing societal afflictions that have helped fuel a culture of hatred: a corporate media that glorifies violence, killing and war, The Sopranos, Quentin Tarantino, and TV shows such as 24; corporate interests that profit from everything from weapons (the “defense” industry) to murder-spree video games that are the daily addiction of children.

This, too, is Bush-Cheney’s American dystopia, made possible by the fine example set by what is a mafia by every definition.

There are few differences between the mentally ill Cho Seung-Hui and the mentally ill George W. Bush, but these differences are important.

The cold-blooded killing spree that has been carried out by Bush (and his ilk) is not recognized, even as the destruction continues, and his body count builds by the hour.

The very existence of Bush, his massacres, do not grip the acquiescent and ignorant American people with fear. And except for those families that have been direct victims of Bush-Cheney’s criminality, such the family of Pat Tillman, America is not demanding justice, not rushing en masse to grief counselors, not “asking why,” not asking to stop it.

Bush, with sneering contempt, is roaming freely through the campus that is the world, loaded with weapons.

CIA recruiting at Virginia

Tech from 2005


For the second time this year, the Central Intelligence Agency will be coming to Virginia Tech to recruit students. And for the second time this year, they will be met with protests from students who view the CIA as an immoral organization that engages in torture and murder.

Nicholas Kiersey organized a protest last spring when the CIA came to campus. He released the following statement Monday about the CIA's trip to Torgeson 3100 Thursday at 7 p.m.:

"Blacksburg, VA November 13, 2005 - A coalition of concerned graduate students and campus organizations at Virginia Tech are this Thursday staging a 'teach in' to protest CIA recruitment on campus. Planned events also include the protest of a 'career information' session to be held by the CIA later that evening.

On November 2nd, 2005 the Washington Post published an article entitled “CIA Holds Terror Suspects in Secret Prisons”. The article reported that the CIA has set up a covert network of secret prisons and interrogation centers, known as “black sites”, in several countries around the world, including several democracies in Eastern Europe and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Prisoners at these facilities are held indefinitely and often in isolation, without due process of the law. Moreover, CIA interrogators working at these sites are permitted to use the CIA's approved "Enhanced Interrogation Techniques," some of which are prohibited by the U.N. convention and by U.S. military law. Among the tactics approved for use are "waterboarding", intended to induce in prisoners the idea that they are drowning.

While intelligence officials defend the unrestricted operation of these sites as necessary for the successful defense of the country, it should be noted that both the sites and the suspected practices carried out at them would be illegal if operated within the USA, which is a signatory to the U.N. Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. Importantly, the same is true for the democratic host states in Eastern Europe where some of these sites are located.

The 'Teach In' will take place on Thursday, Nov. 17, 5-6.30pm, in Torgerson 3100. The event will feature talks by Virginia Tech instructors and the presentation of a draft letter to President Steger's office, signed by a number of concerned Virginia Tech faculty and students.

The letter will request that Virginia Tech place a moratorium on all CIA activities on Virginia Tech's campus until such time as a thorough and independent investigation certifies that the organization has been thoroughly reformed and no longer engages in practices that contravene international law and basic standards of human rights.

The CIA's scheduled 'career information' session will take place at 7pm in the same location.

Sponsoring campus organizations include: The International Club and Amnesty International at Virginia Tech."
