Our memory for recent and past events is short. Our own media does nothing to connect the dots or the associations between people of influence: Unless there's a position to target a person.... a person or persons involved eventually in a various string of events receives discretionary type of reporting.... disconnected from the larger picture and briefly focus on some point which seems of no consequence, while we're distracted by other events reported in the same disconnected way. I have found a quilter........ yes a woman skilled in quilting crafts..... who is also a rather remarkable researcher and brings together pieces of the puzzle which so many of us could not see before, and which some of us had guessed at but couldn't quite put together. Her copywrite information is presented here, as a courtesy to the readers or moderators on this board concerning her generous sharing of her material: I will post in a separate thread, her material, in hopes it may flow easier for the readers .......those who wish to refresh their own memory or history leading to the present wars. It is my hope that discussion will be kept to this thread as a parrallel to that so that that thread is not broken up from the flow of her well researched information. For the sake of referral, I will number each addition to that thread so that a quick reference may be made between it and this for the sake of discussions: Thereby, hopefully, maintaining the integrity and focus of her well researched articles. God bless.
