The Wye River Agreement Conspiracy by rense.com? :j
It is not an "American base" in Israel, but an Israeli base, built by the US
- as a result of the 1998 signed Wyne River Agreement
- (construction was sheduled to begin in 2001 - end in 2006) to set up a alternative for the IDF bases in the Westbank.
The US then agreed to fund the infrasrtucture costs
(~ $ 266 million) and to build it up.

U.S. Begins Building Israeli Base
Israeli and American officials have broken ground for a $266 million Israeli military base that is being built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and
paid for by the United States under an agreement signed in 1998. The new base, in the southern Negev region, is replacing an Israeli Army training
site in the West Bank. Martin Indyk, the American ambassador to Israel, called the project a symbol "of America's continuing commitment to Israel's
Israeli Ministry of Defense Director Gen. Amos Yaron, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Kurtzer, and Brig. Gen. Bo Temple, commander of North Atlantic
Division, cut the ribbon July 15 for the Southern Infantry Training Base in Israel,
completing the first of three installations built under the Wye River Memorandum program.
The Nachshonim Storage Base, a $125-million base 40 minutes east of Tel Aviv. A small city in the desert, it consists of 210 buildings sitting on 400
acres of land connected by 23 kilometers (14 miles) of asphalt.
The Inauguration Ceremony IDAN Division Storage Base “Nachshonim”
[U.S. Ambassador to Israel Richard H.] JONES:
I am pleased to take part in this great event today. Over the past four and a half years since the laying of the cornerstone by my
predecessor, Daniel Kurtzer, we have watched the progress as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, its partners from the IDF and their contractors have
turned an inhospitable field into the magnificent storage facility that you see all around you.
Under the terms of the Wye River accords the United States agreed to fund several separation bases for the Israeli Defense Forces. Here at
Nachshonim we see the culmination of the largest part of that commitment - a fully operational base to store the
equipment of the entire IDAN Israeli Reserve Division.

Still isn't it a little silly storing everything in one place, it would be a great place to lob a few missiles into....

July 21, 2006 -- The son of David Gribben, Vice President Dick Cheney's boyhood friend and his chief of staff at the Pentagon and Vice President for
Corporate Affairs at Halliburton, has reportedly joined Cheney's White House staff as an assistant. The elder Gribben is an active player in the
corporate-religious tax dodge known as The Fellowship, an Arlington, Virginia-based contrivance that uses religious tax-exempt status to lobby the
U.S. and foreign governments on behalf of the military-industrial complex. With the carrying out of the Clean Break by Israel and the United States,
profits for companies like Halliburton are bound to skyrocket. The Israeli attack on Lebanon is already estimated to have resulted in $2 billion in
damage to Lebanon's infrastructure. WMR previously reported that Jacobs/Sverdrup has been promised a lucrative Pentagon contract to build a large
U.S. airbase in northern Lebanon.
The stage is set for Halliburton to move into U.S. and Israeli-occupied Lebanon.
LOL! There's nothing like unbiased reporting, and that was nothing like unbiased reporting.
Click through to the page, and the first thing you'll see is a pic of Cynthia McKinney, an extreme embarrassment to the U.S. Congress (which alrady
has a plethora of reasons to be a bit red-faced without her help), Miss Personal Entitlement Queen. The article is about how poor ol' l'il Cindy is
a victim and needs to be reelected.
The article on Halliburton is heavy with bias opinion that I am totally off balance as to what is true and what is not. Couple that with the fact
that so many doomsday prophesies involving the 'burton never came to fruition with the fact that there were several times during the Gulf War II that
the 'burton tried to save U.S. tax dollars with better decision-making and efficiency but was redirects by the U. S. Government (talk about an
organization that knows nothing of efficiency!!) and such stories are hard to take seriously.
The one thing that causes me to want to take note and watch for later developement is that Tut brought this to our attention. Otherwise I would
dismiss it out of hand.
*Please, Cynthia again? The only way that will happen is if the inner-city schools have succeeded in dumbing their students down as desired in the
last few years.*
