David Kris gaining support for post as deputy AG



By Al Kamen
Senate Republicans are said to be lining up behind David Kris, now assistant attorney general for the National Security Division, for the still-vacant deputy attorney general post, our colleague Carrie Johnson reports. Kris, confirmed in his current job by a 97-0 Senate vote, had also worked for the Clinton and Bush Justice Departments until 2003 as a top national security official. Kris, a strong advocate of the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, received substantial national attention in 1996 for a blistering critique of the Bush administration's justifications of its warrantless wiretapping program.

The long-awaited announcement is not expected until later this year, long after the department announces a place that is not Manhattan for the trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. In the meantime, acting deputy AG Gary Grindler is putting together his staff from within the department, naming, among others, Lisa O. Monaco, a former Enron prosecutor, to be acting principal associate deputy attorney general -- she'll need to get a very big name plate or use very small print -- and former Guantanamo task force chief Matthew Olsen to be associate deputy attorney general.

WARNING-ADVISORY TO CONGRESS:

David Kris is one of the Bush-Cheney holdovers responsible for THIS:

SECRET HOMELAND-LED PROGRAM SILENTLY TORTURES, IMPAIRS, 'SLOW KILLS' AMERICANS WITH NATIONWIDE CELL TOWER MICROWAVE/LASER 'DIRECTED ENERGY' WEAPON SYSTEM: VETERAN JOURNALIST

• Secret Bush-Cheney legacy multi-agency federal-local program uses cell tower/GPS satellite microwave/laser electromagnetic precision "directed energy" RF radiation attack system to silently torture, impair, subjugate "targeted" citizens -- and oversees local police-protected "community watch" vigilante harassment, vandalism, and financial sabotage campaigns.

• Electromagnetic and social neutralization, elimination of "dissidents," undesirables. POLITICAL LEADERS MAY BE TARGETS.

• Why so many cell towers saturate the American landscape -- urban and rural.

• Weapon system patents reveal silent, powerful attack system in YOUR backyard.

• American human rights atrocities, ideological purge, under the cover of national security.
