The level of suspicion and surveillance created by the [US false flag operation and call to arms] Bali bombings, created by [ the Coalition of the Killing and Australian's complicity to go to war on Iraq] means that all Australian's suffer the loss of their human rights, civil rights and their democratic rights, as well as those Australian's who lost their life in Bali.
This loss was self- inflicted by John Howard the nations leader let there be no doubt about that.
Four months after the [USA, CIA, false flag, call to arms] Bali bombings, in the midst of an unprecedented national security alert, counter-terrorism teams have been set up in all states and territories to capture suspected plotters [scapegoats and patsies.]
[Just plain murder, fear-mongering, reichstag, propaganda, all created by the Coalition of the Killing to bolster support and quell dissent for their illegal and degrading resource war's in the Middle East.]
More than 45 specialist officers in the joint counter-terrorism teams will complement tactical response teams, which deal with hostage, siege and terrorist situations.
The investigative units were foreshadowed last year as part of an overhaul of national security programs.
The teams will be under the command of the Australian Federal Police, which is funding all positions, in an attempt to unite the disparate, and often voluminous, intelligence reports about significant arrests, criminal trends and suspicious transactions.
A NSW Police spokesman said lawyers for the Commissioner, Ken Moroney, signed a memorandum of understanding with the AFP on Tuesday - the last jurisdiction to do so.
Each team will operate under its state's criminal laws.
In NSW, officers will have recourse to the Terrorism (Police Powers) Act, a powerful law passed before Christmas to address perceived loopholes after the [USA, CIA, false flag and call to arms] Bali [reichstag.]
It gives NSW officers, acting on intelligence from the [CIA] AFP and possibly ASIO, the right to conduct raids - or search people, property and vehicles - [fishing expeditions] without having to immediately obtain a warrant. [?]
Using state-based laws also allows operatives to detain suspected terrorists [scapegoats and patsies] for offences [false flag operations and state terror] not obviously related to their more sinister activities. [Nothing, or if anything at all, an alleged thought-crime, no method, at no place and no time.]
In other words if they raid someone's home and they were wrong then they would grab you for anything they can find to prove their case.
Although the AFP is leading the operations, the memorandums stipulate that each team has a board of management to ensure effective use of resources.
Each team will be linked to the AFP's Transnational Crime Co-ordination Centre, a 24-hour response desk - opened last December - aimed at bolstering the sharing of critical terrorism-related information. [Just plain rubbish.]
At a Senate estimates hearing last week, the AFP's Commissioner, Mick Keelty [Guilty], said the joint teams aimed to stop attacks before they occurred. [Just plain rubbish.]
Keelty [Guilty] said the teams were designed to work proactively on the intelligence that arises from federal, state and territory police operations [government operations], as well as from intelligence provided by the Australian intelligence community [CIA].
An official from Austrac - the financial transaction monitoring agency - would support the teams, he said.
Mr Keelty also revealed that international terrorism experts [CIA, FBI, MI5 ] had been seconded to improve investigative techniques and broaden the appreciation of how terrorist cells set up and operate. [Just plain rubbish.]
This includes three officers from London's Metropolitan Police, with possible future attachments from the FBI, as well as German and Dutch agencies.
The formal establishment of the teams comes only days after Australia's security intelligence chief warned that the threat to Australia remained, [he should know he helped creat it] having increased last November after credible, non-specific information [?] of an attack over Christmas.
ASIO's director, Dennis Richardson, said Osama bin Laden would try to use events linked to the Iraq crisis to recruit followers. He also warned that the timing of the war might affect planned terrorist attacks. [Planned false flag operations.]
[Now we all know that Osama bin Laden who works for the CIA was never in any way, shape or form linked to Iraq. Keywords: Links, Cells, Plots, Jihad, Training Camps.]

SKIPPY: Propaganda and you guessed it, Sheep shit! Why do you lie like that?
Al-Qa'ida or poor people without hope?
Anyone contemplating war without a UN sanction is nothing more than a common criminal and not acting in accordance with the law. Isn't Richardson the head of ASIO? A law enforcement agency? Al-Qa'ida is a Coalition of the Killing demon made up by the CIA. These people are just scapegoats, patsies, and peasants."
Doom gloom and 'Boom' Downer shakes the room?
"Optimism is better and so is 'constructive feedback' because using constructive feedback means that the negatives also have a role in the construction of a nation. In short we have all the time in world to solve problems properly and that is what our leaders should be focusing on when they decide to inform all Australians. Hey what's the rush?" He said.
Hypocrisy not Democracy? No Blood for Oil!
Howard has refused to back down on the threat of war despite hundreds of thousands of Australians rallying against it. The question is why?

War: Part one The human cost
On the road to Basra, ITV was filming wild dogs as they tore at the corpses of the Iraqi dead. Every few seconds a ravenous beast would rip off a decaying arm and make off with it over the desert in front of us, dead fingers trailing through the sand, the remains of the burned military sleeve flapping in the wind. "Just for the record,'' the cameraman said to me. Of course. Because ITV would never show such footage.

"If there is a target person the police would have powers in relation to that type of person," Mr Costa said.

It could set a negative precedent for upholding the hard-won right to demonstrate in the street."
Give peace a chance
PIERS AKERMAN DT 28 Nov 02: JUSTICE John Dowd should be removed from the bench. His crime? Stupidity.
