QUOTE
Also,  under  NSDD  145 the Pentagon has  issued  an  order,
virtually  unknown  to all  but a few industry  executives,  that
affects  commercial communications satellites.   The  policy  was
made official by Defense Secretary Weinberger in June of 1985 and
requires  that all commercial satellite operators that carry such
unclassified  government data traffic as routine Pentagon  supply
information  and  payroll data (and that  compete  for  lucrative
government  contracts)  install costly protective systems on  all
satellites  launched after 1990.   The policy does  not  directly
affect the data over satellite channels, but it does make the NSA
privy  to vital information about the essential signals needed to
operate a satellite.  With this information it could take control
of any satellite it chooses.

    
Latham  insists this,  too,  is a voluntary policy and  that
only  companies that wish to install protection will  have  their
systems  evaluated by the NSA.   He also says industry  officials
are  wholly  behind  the move,  and argues  that  the  protective
systems  are necessary.
  With just a few thousand dollars'  worth
of  equipment,  a  disgruntled employee could  interfere  with  a
satellite's  control  signals  and disable or  even  wipe  out  a
hundred-million-dollar satellite carrying government information.
    
At best,  his comments are misleading.  First, the policy is
not  voluntary.    The  NSA  can  cut  off  lucrative  government
contracts  to companies that do not comply with  the  plan.   The
Pentagon   alone  spent  more  than  a  billion  dollars  leasing
commercial  satellite  channels  last  year;  that's  a  powerful
incentive for business to cooperate.

    
Second,  the  industry's  support  is  anything  but  total.
According  to the minutes of one closed-door meeting between  NSA
officials -- along with representatives of other federal agencies
--  and  executives from AT&T, Comsat, GTE Sprint, and  MCI,  the
executives  neither  supported  the  move  nor  believed  it  was
necessary.   The  NSA  defended  the policy  by  arguing  that  a
satellite  could  be held for ransom if the command  and  control
links  weren't  protected.   But  experts  at  the  meeting  were
skeptical.

QUOTE
These attempts to keep unclassified data out of the hands of scientists, researchers, the news media, and the public at large are a part of an alarming trend that has seen the military take an ever-increasing role in controlling the flow of information and communications through American society, a role traditionally -- and almost exclusively -- left to civilians. Under the approving gaze of the Reagan administration, Department of Defense (DoD) officials have quietly implemented a number of policies, decisions, and orders that give the military unprecedented control over both the content and public use of data and communications. For example:

**The Pentagon has created a new category of "sensitive" but unclassified information that allows it to keep from public access huge quantities of data that were once widely accessible.

**Defense Department officials have attempted to rewrite key laws that spell out when the president can and cannot appropriate private communications facilities.

**The Pentagon has installed a system that enables it to seize control of the nation's entire communications network -- the phone system, data transmissions, and satellite transmissions of all kinds -- in the event of what it deems a "national emergency." As yet there is no single, universally agreed-upon definition of what constitutes such a state. Usually such an emergency is restricted to times of natural disaster, war, or when national security is specifically threatened. Now the military has attempted to redefine emergency.

The point man in the Pentagon's onslaught on communications is Assistant Defense Secretary Donald C. Latham, a former NSA deputy chief. Latham now heads up an interagency committee in charge of writing and implementing many of the policies that have put the military in charge of the flow of civilian information and communication. He is also the architect of National Security Decision Directive 145 (NSDD 145), signed by Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger in 1984, which sets out the national policy on telecommunications and computer-systems security.

...

The powers of the president are set out in Section 606 of that law; basically it states that he has the authority to take control of any communications facilities that he believes "essential to the national defense." In the language of the trade this is known as a 606 emergency.

There have been a number of attempts in recent years by Defense Department officials to redefine what qualifies as a 606 emergency and make it easier for the military to take over national communications.

In 1981 the Senate considered amendments to the 1934 act that would allow the president, on Defense Department recommendation, to require any communications company to provide services, facilities, or equipment "to promote the national defense and security or the emergency preparedness of the nation," even in peacetime and without a declared state of emergency. The general language had been drafted by Defense Department officials. (The bill failed to pass the House for unrelated reasons.)

Should the Pentagon ever be given the green light, its base for taking over the nation's communications system would be a nondescript yellow brick building within the maze of high rises, government buildings, and apartment complexes that make up the Washington suburb of Arlington, Virginia. Headquartered in a dusty and aging structure surrounded by a barbed-wire fence is an obscure branch of the military known as the Defense Communications Agency (DCA). It does not have the spit and polish of the National Security Agency or the dozens of other government facilities that make up the nation's capital. But its lack of shine belies its critical mission: to make sure all of America's far-flung military units can communicate with one another. It is in certain ways the nerve center of our nation's defense system.

On the second floor of the DCA's four-story headquarters is a new addition called the National Coordinating Center (NCC). Operated by the Pentagon, it is virtually unknown outside of a handful of industry and government officials. The NCC is staffed around the clock by representatives of a dozen of the nation's largest commercial communications companies -- the so-called "common carriers" -- including AT&T, MCI, GTE, Comsat, and ITT. Also on hand are officials from the State Department, the CIA, the Federal Aviation Administration, and a number of other federal agencies. During a 606 emergency the Pentagon can order the companies that make up the National Coordinating Center to turn over their satellite, fiberoptic, and land-line facilities to the government.

On a long corridor in the front of the building is a series of offices, each outfitted with a private phone, a telex machine, and a combination safe. It's known as "logo row" because each office is occupied by an employee from one of the companies that staff the NCC and because their corporate logos hang on the wall outside. Each employee is on permanent standby, ready to activate his company's system should the Pentagon require it.

The National Coordinating Center's mission is as grand as its title is obscure: to make available to the Defense Department all the facilities of the civilian communications network in this country -- the phone lines, the long-distance satellite hookups, the data transmission lines -- in times of national emergency. If war breaks out and communications to a key military base are cut, the Pentagon wants to make sure that an alternate link can be set up as fast as possible. Company employees assigned to the center are on call 24 hours a day; they wear beepers outside the office, and when on vacation they must be replaced by qualified colleagues.

These facts were not lost on the Defense Department or the White House. According to documents obtained by Omni, beginning on December 14, 1982, a number of secret meetings were held between high-level administration officials and executives of the commercial communications companies whose employees would later staff the National Coordinating Center. The meetings, which continued over the next three years, were held at the White House, the State Department, the Strategic Air Command (SAC) headquarters at Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska, and at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in Colorado Springs.

The industry officials attending constituted the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee -- called NSTAC (pronounced N-stack) -- set up by President Reagan to address those same problems that worried the Pentagon. It was at these secret meetings, according to the minutes, that the idea of a communications watch center for national emergencies -- the NCC -- was born. Along with it came a whole set of plans that would allow the military to take over commercial communications "assets" -- everything from ground stations and satellite dishes to fiberoptic cables -- across the country.

A major part of the report also contains an analysis of how to make commercial satellites "interoperable" with Defense Department systems. While the report notes that current technical differences such as varying frequencies make it difficult for the Pentagon to use commercial satellites, it recommends ways to resolve those problems. Much of the report is a veritable blueprint for the government on how to take over satellites in orbit above the United States. This information, plus NSDD 145's demand that satellite operators tell the NSA how their satellites are controlled, guarantees the military ample knowledge about operating commercial satellites.

The Pentagon now has an unprecedented access to the civilian communications network: commercial databases, computer networks, electronic links, telephone lines. All it needs is the legal authority to use them. Then it could totally dominate the flow of all information in the United States. As one high-ranking White House communications official put it: "Whoever controls communications, controls the country." His remark was made after our State Department could not communicate directly with our embassy in Manila during the anti-Marcos revolution last year. To get through, the State Department had to relay all its messages through the Philippine government.

Turns out, of course, by its own admission NCC was active on 911. Was it participating in the war games that day?

From a NCC "Fact Sheet:"

QUOTE
Fact Sheet

National Coordinating Center Purpose: The National Coordinating Center (NCC) is a joint industry and Government staffed organization that assists in the initiation, coordination, restoration, and reconstitution of national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) telecommunications services and facilities under crisis or emergency conditions.

Background: In 1982, the President’s National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) recommended the government establish a mechanism by which the telecommunications industry and Federal Government representatives could coordinate initiation and restoration of NS/EP telecommunications services.

In 1984, the NCC commenced operations. Since that time, the NCC has responded to a full range of emergencies—from catastrophic hurricanes and other natural disasters to terrorist attacks and wartime activities. The NCC is part of National Communications System (NCS) in Arlington, Virginia.

Full-time telecommunications industry and Government representatives staff the NCC and serve as liaisons with their parent organizations. The cooperation fostered between the telecommunications industry and the Government in the NCC has provided an operational focal point for all Government/ industry NS/EP telecommunications response across the spectrum of emergencies.

Highlights: During the recovery efforts following the terrorist’s attacks of September 11, 2001, the NCC provided national and regional level support for response and recovery efforts to government and industry organizations and personnel. The NCC prioritized the communications assets, and restoration efforts, thereby ensuring NS/EP telecommunications needs and national priorities were met. A major accomplishment was ensuring the successful opening and continued operation of the financial markets.

In support of Presidential Decision Directive 63 (PDD-63), the NCS designated the NCC an Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) for the telecommunications sector. In June 1999, NSTAC concurred with that designation. The ISAC achieved initial operating capability March 1, 2000.

The NCC served as the collection point for network status for the telecommunications industry during the Year 2000 (Y2K) rollover. Over 80 companies nationally and internationally provided status updates into a Y2K database located in the NCC.

Industry Representatives (as of 1/9/06) – Americom, AT&T, AT&T Wireless, Avici, BellSouth, Boeing, Cincinnati Bell, Cingular Wireless, Cisco Systems, Computer Sciences Corporation, Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association, EDS, Intrado, Level 3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, Lucent Technologies, McLeod USA, Motorola, Nextel, Nortel Networks, Northrop Grumman, Qwest, Savvis, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Sprint, Telecommunications Industry Association, United States Telecommunications Association (USTA), VeriSign, Verizon.

Federal Participants (as of 5/17/05) – Department of State, Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Transportation, Federal Communications Commission, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Federal Reserve Board, General Services Administration, National Security Agency.

NCC, which basically has full access to all the satellites employed by all the communications companies in America, was admittedly active, perhaps even involved in the many war games (a minimum of five, "all hijacks") on that day, and ensured "national priorities" were met on 9/11.

It "provided national and regional level support for response and recovery efforts to government and industry organizations and personnel."

Your airwaves were hijacked that day, of that we can be certain.

Needless to say, this dovetails nicely with NBBT/NPT and helps explain the impossible cell phone calls from 30,000 feet.

Yeah. NCC may be the missing link. Admits to being active on 911. Says it made sure "national priorities were met." And basically puts all the nations satellite and telecommunications under one roof with the DoD, NSA the CIA, amongst others.

Just remember I was the first to start talking about it, to bring it up. biggrin.gif

Excellent, George. I want to dove tail the below in this thread as I believe they may be relevant.

1: Peter Dale Scott says COG was in effect on 9/11:

QUOTE
Cheney-Rumsfeld surveillance plans date back to 1980s
By Peter Dale Scott
-Guest Columnist-
Updated Feb 7, 2006, 10:19 am 

Revelations that the National Security Agency (NSA) has engaged in warrantless eavesdropping in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act prompted President George Bush to admit in December that in 2002 he directly authorized the activity in the wake of 9/11.
But there are reasons to suspect that the illegal eavesdropping, and the related program of illegal detentions of U.S. citizens as well as foreign nationals, began earlier. Both may be part of what Vice President Dick Cheney has called the Bush administration’s restoration of “the legitimate authority of the presidency”—practices exercised by former president Richard Nixon that were outlawed after Watergate.

In the 1980s, Richard Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld discussed just such emergency surveillance and detention powers in a super-secret program that planned for what was euphemistically called “Continuity of Government” (COG) in the event of a nuclear disaster.

At the time, Mr. Cheney was a Wyoming congressman, while Mr. Rumsfeld, who had been defense secretary under President Gerald Ford, was a businessman and CEO of the drug company G.D. Searle. Overall responsibility for the program had been assigned to Vice President George H.W. Bush, “with Lt. Col. Oliver North ... as the National Security Council action officer,” according to James Bamford in his book, “A Pretext for War.”

These men planned for suspension of the Constitution, not just after nuclear attack, but for any “national security emergency,” which they defined in Executive Order 12656 of 1988 as: “Any occurrence, including natural disaster, military attack, technological or other emergency, that seriously degrades or seriously threatens the national security of the United States.” Clearly, 9/11 would meet this definition.

2: Background on COG, "The Armageddon Plan"

QUOTE
Published in the March, 2004 issue of The Atlantic
The Armageddon Plan
by James Mann

At least once a year during the 1980s Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld vanished. Cheney was working diligently on Capitol Hill, as a congressman rising through the ranks of the Republican leadership. Rumsfeld, who had served as Gerald Ford's Secretary of Defense, was a hard-driving business executive in the Chicago area—where, as the head of G. D. Searle & Co., he dedicated time and energy to the success of such commercial products as Nutra-Sweet, Equal, and Metamucil. Yet for periods of three or four days at a time no one in Congress knew where Cheney was, nor could anyone at Searle locate Rumsfeld. Even their wives were in the dark; they were handed only a mysterious Washington phone number to use in case of emergency.

After leaving their day jobs Cheney and Rumsfeld usually made their way to Andrews Air Force Base, outside Washington. From there, in the middle of the night, each man—joined by a team of forty to sixty federal officials and one member of Ronald Reagan's Cabinet—slipped away to some remote location in the United States, such as a disused military base or an underground bunker. A convoy of lead-lined trucks carrying sophisticated communications equipment and other gear would head to each of the locations.

Rumsfeld and Cheney were principal actors in one of the most highly classified programs of the Reagan Administration. Under it U.S. officials furtively carried out detailed planning exercises for keeping the federal government running during and after a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. The program called for setting aside the legal rules for presidential succession in some circumstances, in favor of a secret procedure for putting in place a new "President" and his staff. The idea was to concentrate on speed, to preserve "continuity of government," and to avoid cumbersome procedures; the speaker of the House, the president pro tempore of the Senate, and the rest of Congress would play a greatly diminished role.

The inspiration for this program came from within the Administration itself, not from Cheney or Rumsfeld; except for a brief stint Rumsfeld served as Middle East envoy, neither of them ever held office in the Reagan Administration. Nevertheless, they were leading figures in the program.

A few details about the effort have come to light over the years, but nothing about the way it worked or the central roles played by Cheney and Rumsfeld. The program is of particular interest today because it helps to explain the thinking and behavior of the second Bush Administration in the hours, days, and months after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Vice President Cheney urged President Bush to stay out of Washington for the rest of that day; Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld ordered his deputy Paul Wolfowitz to get out of town; Cheney himself began to move from Washington to a series of "undisclosed locations"; and other federal officials were later sent to work outside the capital, to ensure the continuity of government in case of further attacks. All these actions had their roots in the Reagan Administration's clandestine planning exercises.

Whoa! I had heard that COG took place on 911 with select Republicons being ferreted away somewhere. Apparently, some key Dems heard and were pissed largely b/c it was a strictly Republicon endeavor.

Back to NCC. I think this is a key breakthru, at least for the F93 fake phone calls, if not for NBBT. NCC was the missing link. It is the place where the military and the kept broadcast media and telecommunications industry overlapped. It was self-admittedly aspiring to make sure that "national interests were met" on 911.

NCC is the missing link. Now you have the means by which the junta fudged the phone calls and, if you will, the footage. salute.gif

George Hayduke, good line of inquiry.
Obv the 'hard facts' are missing- likely not to be found -- but here's some more red meat to toss your way: the NRO was holding a 'plane-crash-into-building' scenario that self-same day, the morning of 9/11 --- the NRO is not just the "Nat'l Recon Agency" == its staff, from the AirForce, CIA, and NSA, team with private companies, like Orion Scientific, etc, to monitor satellite and other imaging and communications channels. Much of the public jobs of intel/com management was "outsourced" to private companies, created and staffed by former DoD officials, who realized it was more lucrative to leave the public sector, create private firms and then sell the same services back via easily-obtained govt contracts.
So as you examine the NCC, also look for 'asteroids' of private firms who could serve as a cut-out. Usual suspects of course include HicksAssociates, BoozAllen, etc.

The fact that Richard Clarke had activated CoG on morning of 9/11 (testified by Hughes, Bush, Clarke) is enough to tell you that there were assets poised to seize control of gov't, if need be, on 9/11. TOmmy Franks has words to say on that topic, vis=a=vis 'a nother 9/11"

Mr. Chairman and members of the Committee:

It is an honor to appear before you again representing the outstanding men and women of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and United States Space Command (USSPACECOM).

<snip>

Air Sovereignty.

The traditional NORAD mission of aerospace control, or more specifically airspace sovereignty, remains a fundamental priority. The United States must maintain the radar systems, aircraft and command and control capabilities, which serve as pillars for homeland defense. In addition, we must continue to pursue improved space-based surveillance, intelligence and communications capabilities as essential contributions for NORAD mission success.

Force Enhancement. Our force enhancement efforts over the last decade have helped us "operationalize" space. Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation satellites and our Satellite Communications (SATCOM) systems are fully integrated into the warfighting capabilities of all our Services and Unified Commands. The readiness of our military forces depends on the modernization of these systems.

GPS has become a way of life for both our military and commercial industry around the world. From precision farming to financial transactions to surveying remote parts of the earth's surface, every sector of our society relies on the timing and navigation services provided by this system. As a result, we have initiated a modernization program that will provide a more robust anti-jam capability for our warfighters and additional civil signals for aviation, safety-of-life

services and other commercial enterprises. We appreciate Congress' continued support in sustaining and modernizing this national resource.

Reliable and secure SATCOM systems are also key to our military's readiness. We continue to exploit our current SATCOM fleet while developing new, technologically advanced systems. Over the past year, we worked with the other Commanders in Chief to revalidate SATCOM requirements. We reaffirmed the need to modernize our capabilities with a blend of military, civil and commercial systems. As we update our satellites, we cannot forget the user terminals. All aspects of SATCOM must be synchronized for maximum utility. We need your continued support to make this critical modernization effort a reality.

Over the past decade, a significant amount of radio frequency spectrum has been reallocated from the DoD to the Federal Communications Commission for auction to the private sector. Our space and air systems depend upon the spectrum to perform our missions. In order to maintain our state of readiness, we need to carefully consider the national security implications of spectrum reallocations. The FY99 Defense Authorization Act restored some of the spectrum previously reallocated. We appreciate Congress' help; however, we face continued requests for expanded non-federal civil and commercial use of this limited spectrum. For instance, there is a proposal being considered to accelerate the reallocation of the Space Ground Link Subsystem frequency, which supports our on-orbit satellite systems. If this proposal is implemented without adequate alternative spectrum for critical military functions, it will limit our ability to effectively command and control our space assets.

I haven't checked but I'd be willing to wager that after 9/11 Eberhart's concerns were eliviated.

Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation satellites and our Satellite Communications (SATCOM) systems are fully integrated into the warfighting capabilities of all our Services and Unified Commands.


NCC is that integration, it provides the means of "unified command" of the nation's entire communications systems via total control of all the satellites orbiting at least America of not beyond.

Re: NRO --In the war games parties played both the agressor and the defender, as must have been the case within NRO's planes-into-tower "exercise." What must be determined is if some within NRO were tasked with playing the aggressor and remote control hijacking planes and then trying to crash them into some bldgs somewhere. According to Ruppert in his "Rubicon" we can presume this is the case.

Yeah, Jack, welcome and I've been intrigued by the possibilities inherent to the NRO 9/11 "exercise" since I first read about it in the USA Today years ago.

Re: COG --Remember all the reports of explosions on Capitol Hill. There were reports of bombs detonating at Congress and elsewhere, thus leading to the evacuation of the government in general that day. The question should become whether ordinance was exploded elsewhere around D.C. that day to usher in the entirely Republicon COG plans. Likely, in my opinion. Note how the kept media never followed up on those initial reports of explosions. In my opinion this lack of coverage should not be seen as coincidental and dismissed.

We should open a whole new thread on COG.

Back to NCC: You guys saw that Raytheon and Boeing were both on the list of "industrialists" housed in the NCC, next to the CIA and NSA and alongside every single satellite service provider, broadcast media logistics company and telecommunication company in the country?

I'm telling you, I'm stoked about this. NCC cracks the case. It puts all the potential players on that day under one roof and gives them all incredible powers. It's the missing link.

This thread is getting sort of out of hand in some ways. Let's keep it focused on NCC and the nation's satellite, broadcast media logistics and telecommunications systems. Please.

About National Coordinating Center
The National Coordinating Center (NCC) was established in 1984 as a result of a National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) recommendation to develop a joint government-industry national coordinating mechanism to respond to the Federal Government's National Security and Emergency Preparedness (NS/EP) communications service requirements. Composed of up to 30 industry chief executives representing the major communications and network service providers and information technology, finance, and aerospace companies, the NSTAC provides industry-based advice and expertise to the President on issues and problems related to implementing the NS/EP communications policy. By virtue of its mandate to address NS/EP communications issues, the NSTAC's partnership with government through the National Communications System (NCS) is unique in two ways - direct industry involvement with both the defense agencies and the civil agencies comprising the NCS; and regular, sustained interaction between industry and the NCS member departments and agencies.

NCC's goal is to ensure that the government's communications infrastructure is available to make an immediate and coordinated response to all emergencies, such as natural disasters, domestic terrorism, man-made disasters or cyber attacks. The NCC also functions as an Information Sharing and Analysis Center, which gathers information about vulnerabilities, threats, intrusions and anomalies from various telecommunications and government sources and analyzes the data to mitigate the effects on the communications infrastructure. This information is ultimately provided to the President of the United States and his national security team.


Could NCC have been how the Pres had so-called "footage" of the F11 impact a day b4 the Naudet bros. turned their footage over to the gov't?

Are you allowed to say Naudet on the Internet without being sued?

This is interesting.
