New Version Of "What Hit The Pentagon?"

Numerous criticisms have been received of "What Hit the Pentagon?". Some pointed to errors, some were unfounded. The new version, version 4, has now been placed at the Journal of 9/11 Studies. I have attempted to correct errors and have added a preface to help explain the purpose of the paper.


If this proves to provoke further criticism, a version 5 may well be produced, as I regard this issue as extremely important. The fact that explosives were used at the WTC is now widely accepted by the truth movement, as the science is now well understood. In the case of the Pentagon attack, however, there is a lack of cohesion in the movement because widely differing views are held. This damages our credibility. The paper provides a study of evidence to show what can, and more importantly, what cannot, be scientifically proved. It makes the case for avoiding asserting to the public what cannot be proved. It is important to avoid action which will impede progress toward a new investigation, with the hope of prosecution of those responsible for 9/11.

Tehran clashes 'left 13 dead'

Iran's state media has said that at least 13 people were killed on Saturday as police and pro-government militia clashed with protesters gathering over the disputed presidential election.

Television reports on Sunday blamed rioters and "terrorist groups" for the previous day's violence, saying two petrol stations and a mosque had been set alight, and a military outpost attacked.

(*I should point out that I'm posting off of Al Jazeera , because I didn't like the smell of THIS story >>> http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/133504 /

Iranian 'Anti-Israel' Rally Turns on Regime , or it's implications ; Iran's annual Quds Day – a national “holiday” of anti-Israel rallies and speeches – has taken a new turn this year, with protesters shouting down the Iranian regime instead of the Jewish state. According to Israel National News sources

update (*from al jazeera article) : Government-run television said members of the exiled Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK)opposition group were arrested in connection with Saturday's unrest.

The report claimed they were acting under British influence.

State Says Forced Injections, Quarantines For “Rapidly Spreading Germ,” But Not Swine Flu

Health authorities in Massachusetts have indicated that they will impose quarantines and mandatory vaccinations in the event of the H1N1 virus mutating into a lethal germ, but that forcible injections are not on the agenda for the swine flu outbreak as it stands.

Concerns about mandatory vaccination programs have been growing worldwide over recent weeks as governments have failed to unequivocally state that the swine flu shot will be voluntary, while ordering enough batches to inoculate their entire population.

These fears have been heightened by warnings from whistle blowers that law enforcement and military officials have been running drills focused around quarantining people who refuse to take the vaccine.

Ahmadinejad: We don't need nuclear weapons

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Thursday that Iran had no use for nuclear weapons, adding that the Islamic Republic would "never" abandon its disputed nuclear program to appease Western critics.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Obama Scraps Land Missile Shield in E. Europe, says Iranian Missile attacks (?) can be Deterred by Sea

President Barack Obama has scrapped an expensive ($56 bn so far) and probably useless "missile shield" program in the Czech Republic and Poland to which Russia had vehemently objected, and which had increasingly been described as aimed not at Russia but at Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With its horrendous failure rate, and bad engineering, this system should be scrapped, period, end of discussion.

Pelosi sounds alarm over angry tone of US politics

The angry tone of US politics, notably in a feud over health care, risks inciting violence like the unrest that led to high-profile slayings in the 1970s, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday.

"I saw this myself in the late 80s in San Francisco, this kind of rhetoric was very frightening, and it created a climate in which violence took place," the top Democrat told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if Pelosi is secretly praying for violence of such magnitude that Obama will have his excuse to declare martial law.

Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb

Iran experts at the U.N nuclear monitoring agency believe Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and worked on developing a missile system that can carry an atomic warhead, according to a confidential report seen by The Associated Press.

Responding to the AP report, the agency did not deny the existence of a confidential record of its knowledge and assessment of Iran's alleged attempts to make nuclear weapons. But an agency statement said the IAEA "has no concrete proof that there is or has been a nuclear weapon program in Iran."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note how the language is shaped here.

"...quite likely to be nuclear"...."...probable testing..."

The IAEA should simply release this report, so that people can see if it is anywhere near as damning regarding the Iranian nuclear power program as this article makes it appear. The US press is already twisting it to read the way they want it to.

Note that IAEA's official position is that the IAEA "has no concrete proof that there is or has been a nuclear weapon program in Iran", yet the servile media headlines the story "Nuke agency says Iran can make bomb."

IAF chief: We must make every effort to stop delivery of S-300s

Israel needs to make every effort to stop the S-300 missile defense system from reaching countries where the air force may need to fly, IAF commander Maj.-Gen. Ido Nehushtan has told The Jerusalem Post in an exclusive interview.

"We need to make every effort to stop this system from getting to places where the IAF needs to operate or may need to operate in the future," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...where the IAF needs to operate or may need to operate in the future"

Could this guy be any more obvious if he tried?!?!?!?

And so, Commander Nehustan, just what is your game plan for preventing Russia from delivering these weapons, if diplomacy doesn't work (and it appears that Netanyahu's visit last week to Moscow bore no fruit on the issue), then what?

War with Russia?!?

Didn't think so.

This story appears to have been engineered to justify pushing up a strike against Iran. Were I a betting person, I wouldn't be against some kind of "October Surprise", after Ahmedinejad's ministers have met with US diplomats on the first of October regarding their nuclear reactor program.

Nano Particles used in Untested H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccines

Vaccines which have been approved by the responsible government authorities for vaccination against the alleged H1N1 Influenza A Swine Flu have been found to contain nano particles. Vaccine makers have been experimenting with nanoparticles as a way to “turbo charge” vaccines for several years. Now it has come out that the vaccines approved for use in Germany and other European countries contain nanoparticles in a form that reportedly attacks healthy cells and can be deadly.

Why Is Obama Still Using Blackwater?

Two years ago on September 16, 2007, on a steamy hot Baghdad day with temperatures reaching 100 degrees, a heavily armed Blackwater convoy entered a congested intersection at Nisour Square in the Mansour district of the Iraqi capital. The once-upscale section of Baghdad was still lined with boutiques, cafes and art galleries dating back to better days. The ominous caravan consisted of four large armored vehicles with machine guns mounted on top.

"My father took on this job because he thought he is doing the best thing for peace, for everyone, and also for Israel," Nicole Goldstone told Army Radio.

What to do with US traitors who wage Wars of Aggression? 1: Truth & Reconciliation. 2: Prosecution.

A traitor is one with allegiance to the US who wages war against the United States. Lying the American public into war that takes trillions in long-term costs and kills over 5,000 US troops is treason. US political “leaders” who wage illegal and horrific Wars of Aggression, the worst crime a nation can commit, are actively attacking our Constitution and values. Neither political party will prosecute these crimes.

So what do we do?

Offer Truth and Reconciliation.

Terrance Yeakey Truth

Most people today believe someone other than James Earl Ray shot Martin Luther King. They have judged the facts, not the standard news media spin. Someday the world opinion will do an about-face and swing in favor of another unjustly convicted man, Tim McVeigh. If AP and the talking heads would only report the truth about ANFO and its impotency, most of the thinking public would have to conclude that Tim McVeigh could not be guilty of murdering anyone. This is already a known fact, but the media are suppressing it. Contrary to news reports, the persons found guilty could not have been solely responsible. An Oklahoma City police sergeant became aware of this before anyone else, apparently during the first hour of rescue. He paid for that discovery with his life.

FLASHBACK - Candidate Carter: 1 Apologize'

The furor began when Carter was asked in Indianapolis to explain his recent statement that there was "nothing wrong with ethnic purity being maintained" in neighborhoods. Carter replied that he wholeheartedly supports open-housing laws that make it a crime to refuse to sell or rent a house or apartment on the grounds of race, color or creed. But he opposes Government programs "to inject black families into a white neighborhood just to create some sort of integration." Said he: "I have nothing against a community that is made up of people who are Polish, or who are Czechoslovakians, or who are French Canadians or who are blacks trying to maintain the ethnic purity of their neighborhoods. This is a natural inclination."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Linked in relation to Carter's comment this week about opposition to Obama being rooted in racism.

Top IDF officer: Iran has taken over Hezbollah

A senior Israel Defense Forces officer said Thursday that all five incidents of rocket fire from southern Lebanon into Israel since the end of the 2006 Second Lebanon War have been carried out in absolute defiance of Hezbollah directives and that Iran had taken control over the Lebanese militia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hey, Haaretz, does this "senior Israel Defense Forces Officer" really exist?

Because if he really did exist, wouldn't you name him as your source?

Of course, this article doesn't even pretend to be journalism.

This looks to be yet another pathetic excuse for yet another invasion of Lebanon, which could well escalate into an attack against Iran, as Iran is blamed as the culprit for having "taken over" Hezbollah.

Ayalon to Jewish Leaders: Fight UN Report Hard

One day after the publication of the United Nations report by Judge Richard Goldstone, which blamed Israel for “war crimes,” Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon met with the heads of the Jewish community in New York and exhorted them to fight the report.

"The Goldstone report should be treated like the U.N.'s Resolution 3379 that compared Zionism to racism,” Ayalon told the local leaders. “That is why we must commit ourselves and act with all our force against the report, with the purpose of removing it and torpedoing it,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Goldstone report should be screamed from the rooftops in every corner of the world, and read and taught in every high school class in the US, to demonstrate what US taxpayer's money going to Israel really buys.

And it sure as heck isn't peace in the region.

Proxy war feared in Yemen Iran, Saudi Arabia

Fierce battles between government troops and Shiite rebels in the northern mountains of Yemen are fuelling fears of regional instability and a possible proxy war between Shiite-dominated Iran and Sunni-led Saudi Arabia.

In an effort to forestall Yemen's collapse, the United States has equipped and trained local security forces, while Saudi Arabia and Iran are waging proxy ideological battles by backing different elements in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now we're involved with yet another Middle Eastern war in behalf of another crooked tin-pot dictator with absolute contempt for his people, and have placed "advisors" who have "equipped and trained local security security forces"?!?

Does anyone at the US State Department have any remote recollection of just how brilliantly well that kind of tactic went when we were propping up the Shaw of Iran?

Apparently, not.

When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.

Obama: Health Reform a 'Defining Struggle of This Generation'

Calling health insurance reform a "defining struggle of this generation," President Obama told thousands of college students Thursday that Congress must resist scare tactics and false accusations to do a makeover.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear President Obey-me.

Insurance corporation profits are not, repeat not, the "defining struggle of this generation."

What arrogant nonsense, even from you.

I know you think you have the divine right to tell Americans what they should think is important or not, but common sense has to tell you that the real defining struggle for the new generation is how to avoid being killed and crippled in all the wars the US Government is trying to start to distract from their total failure with the economy.

The defining struggle of this generation is how to reverse the trend towards tyranny; a trend YOU YOURSELF PROMISED YOU WOULD REVERSE IN YOUR CAMPAIGN SPEECHES, only to support fully now that you are in office.

You promised you would end the wars. The wars continue. Indeed they escalate!

You promised you would end torture. The torture continues.

You promised you would end warrantless spying on Americans. The spying continues.

Only 8 months into the job and you are a total failure as President.

The defining struggle of this generation is how to fire you and all your enablers, and get back the Constitutional Republic the Founding Fathers created for us.

Unbelievable - Vehicle Tracking, Taxing Bill In House

A Member of Congress proposes to use taxpayer money to fund the development of technology to track motorists as part of a new form of taxation. US Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-Oregon) introduced H.R. 3311 earlier this year to appropriate $154,500,000 for research and study into the transition to a per-mile vehicle tax system. The "Road User Fee Pilot Project" would be administered by the US Treasury Department. This agency in turn would issue millions in taxpayer-backed grants to well-connected commercial manufacturers of tolling equipment to help develop the required technology. Within eighteen months of the measure's passage, the department would file an initial report outlining the best methods for adopting the new federal transportation tax.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Instead of toying how better to tax the already taxed-to-death American, how about coming up with plans which eliminate these wars without end, and putting that money into infrastructure, and true health care reform?

Of course, that would be logical.

No more than 20 meters past the former Israeli watchtower, in an empty lot, is the memorial for the victims of the 1982 Lebanon Civil War massacre.

The massacres perpetrators were of the predominantly Christian Phalange party: supplied, supported and supervised by on-looking Israeli soldiers.

As the month of Ramadan draws to a close, many Palestinians are devoting the last ten days of the holy month to gaining more spiritual enrichment through I’tikaf or uninterrupted spiritual engagement.

Many people are going for I’tikaf this year, motivated by a desire to gain Allah’s blessing and also encouraged by a relative relaxation of the normally harsh Israeli restrictions on the entry of Palestinians to al-Quds.

The Israeli occupation authorities this year allowed men over 50 and women over 45 to enter Jerusalem on Fridays. However, worshipers are still subjected to meticulous and often humiliating searches.

2009– Year of the Slave

So, what is a slave? How do we define a slave? What test do we use to tell if someone is a slave. What makes them different from free people?

Free people can say “no”. Free people can refuse demands for their money, time, and children. Slaves cannot. There is no freedom without the freedom to say “no”. If someone demands that you do something and you can say “no” and refuse to do it, then you are a free human being. If you can be forced to do something or surrender something that you do not wish to, then you are a slave. No other test need be applied.

Freedom is the freedom to say "no."

Insurance Company Must Pay $10 Million For Revoking Policy Of Teen With HIV

The South Carolina Supreme Court has ordered an insurance company to pay $10 million for wrongly revoking the insurance policy of a 17-year-old college student after he tested positive for HIV. The court called the 2002 decision by the insurance company "reprehensible."

That appears to be the most an insurance company has ever been ordered to pay in a case involving the practice known as rescission, in which insurance companies retroactively cancel coverage for policyholders based on alleged misstatements - sometimes right after diagnoses of life-threatening diseases.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Report: Gen. McChrystal Seeking Another 40,000 Troops for Afghanistan

Despite claims earlier in the day from President Barack Obama that no ‘immediate decision’ was pending on Afghanistan, Fox News is quoting sources in the government as saying General Stanley McChrystal has already made his long-awaited troop request, and it’s a doozy.

Gen. McChrystal is now ‘privately’ requesting another 40,000 troops for the eight year old war, which would bring the overall US presence there to well over 100,000 troops, and nearly triple the number in the nation with President Obama was elected last November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

40,000 more troops? From where, without a draft?!?!?

The only way this might be possible is the hiring of more mercenaries for hire, and I'm sure that the corporate owners of those"rent-a-soldier" companies are salivating, hearing this request from Mc Crystal.

White House: Criticism of Obama not based on race

Webmaster's Commentary:

5 Reasons for Caution in the Stock Market and Housing Casino. Public Private Investment Program gives it a go. $64 Million Gives you Access to $1.3 Billion in Unpaid Principal.

It is official that the stock market has gone into full casino mode. Since the March low the S&P 500 has rallied to the tune of 60 percent. The only other time you will see such a fierce rally was during the Great Depression. Yet what people fail to see in the current system is the massive amounts of government sponsored juice and housing-roids that are making the system act like it just drank 10 cans of Red Bull. Ultimately after all this partying runs its course, another deep hangover is going to happen. Interestingly enough, if you look at the market sentiment in 1929 you would be hard pressed to find dissenting voices. Those that did make any noise were pushed to the back and the media simply did not cover their warnings.

Iran attack: Israel ex-min sees end-yr deadline

Israel will be compelled to attack Iran's nuclear sites if Western powers cannot agree crippling sanctions against Tehran by the end of the year, a former Israeli deputy defense minister said on Wednesday. Ephraim Sneh, who holds no position in the current Israeli government and was speaking in his personal capacity, told Reuters it was not clear the United States and European Union had the decisiveness to take such steps, which should include tougher banking and oil curbs, by year's end.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel, the US, Germany, France, and the UK cannot possibly get the sanctions from the UN Security Council, because Russia and China will veto.

Sanctions placed by said countries cannot work, because other countries will be glad to pick up the slack by providing Iran with whatever is being sanctioned.

So short of an outright attack, the only trick left in the bag is a naval blockade, which will, accurately, be interpreted by Iran as an act of war, and then we're off and running.

Steve Rosen Accuses AIPAC of Espionage

Steven J. Rosen’s defamation lawsuit against the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) is now entering a critical phase. A series of cross-filings stakes out the critical court terrain. Rosen intends to show that obtaining and leveraging classified U.S. government information in the service of Israel is common practice at AIPAC. He claims it was unfair for AIPAC to fire and malign him in the press after he was indicted on espionage charges in 2005. AIPAC’s defense team is committed to getting the case thrown out on technicalities before it goes to trial early next year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell
you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."
US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

Black Sea Crisis Deepens As US-NATO Threat To Iran Grows

Tensions are mounting in the Black Sea with the threat of another conflict between U.S. and NATO client state Georgia and Russia as Washington is manifesting plans for possible military strikes against Iran in both word and deed.

Abkhazian President Sergei Bagapsh ordered his nation's navy to respond to Georgia's forceful seizure of civilian ships in neutral waters, calling such actions what they are - piracy - by confronting and if need be sinking Georgian navy and coast guard vessels. The Georgian and navy and coast guard are trained by the United States and NATO.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Interesting timing here; right on cue....

One has to wonder if we're looking for a military confrontation between Israel and the US against before the end of this year.

Right now, I wouldn't bet against that.

World to America: We Want Our Gold Back

The world is preparing to abandon the U.S. dollar and the UK pound. Pronouncements from Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, Switzerland and Germany have made clear that the Anglo-Saxon financial system’s doom is only a matter of time.

A huge announcement out of Hong Kong rattled the financial world on September 3. Although big media relegated the story to the back pages, it should have been front and center! What’s the news? China is demanding its gold back.

“Hong Kong is pulling all its physical gold holdings from depositories in London,” reported MarketWatch (emphasis mine throughout).

Israel: UN Gaza Report "Makes A Mockery Of History"

President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that the Goldstone report, which accuses Israel of committing war crimes during its military offensive in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip earlier this year, "makes a mockery of history."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Shimon Perez; this report doesn't make a "mockery of history" (which every Israeli justification of the wounding and killing of innocent non-combatants does): it tells history, for once, so that the international community has absolutely no doubts whatsoever as to what was done in the latest attack against Gaza.

All of the screaming, moaning, and lying on the part of the Netanyahu government cannot and will not change that.

Intelligence Agencies Say No New Nukes in Iran

The U.S. intelligence community is reporting to the White House that Iran has not restarted its nuclear-weapons development program, two counterproliferation officials tell NEWSWEEK. U.S. agencies had previously said that Tehran halted the program in 2003.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This, being the truth, will simply be disregarded by Israel and the US, as the war drums bang ever more incessantly toward an attack against Iran.

Sheriff says using military weapon on crowds ‘isn’t controversial’

The purchase of the so-called “sonic weapon” by the sheriff’s department set off shockwaves after it was reported last week by East County Magazine in California. The weapons, formally known as “long-range acoustic devices,” are used in the Iraq theater as a deterrent against crowds and emit an intolerable noise that can be targeted with extreme accuracy.

“If you accidentally flip that switch and someone is within a 30-foot range, they can have their eardrums burst, bleeding in the inner ear, and it can result in an aneurysm or death,” Examiner.com reporter Kim Dvorac said in a radio interview Wednesday cited by the magazine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what has got the San Diego Sheriff's department so potentially terrified of its own people that their response to that terror was the purchase of this weapon?

German workers 'trigger' earthquake by drilling

Rudolf Braun, an expert in the safety of geothermal energy projects, there was no question that geothermal energy projects were capable of triggering small earthquakes.

“You need to have some weak earthquakes in order to create a geothermal reservoir containing enough water to generate commercial amounts of power,” he said. “You need to have some small seismic disruptions to achieve this. So the question is not whether or not they cause earthquakes but to what degree they might cause damage.”

Thank You Jimmy Carter - Media trying to polish the turd!

Of the angry opposition the president's been facing, Carter said: "I think it's based on racism. There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh? Then who voted him into office?

What Obama is doing is recycling Israel's favorite tactic, which is to scream "Anti-Semite" at every criticism.

For example....

"Why did you kill Rachel Corrie?"

"You're an anti-Semite!"

"Why did you commit war crimes in Gaza?"

"You're an anti-Semite!"

"Why are you building illegal settlements on Palestinian land?"

"You're an anti-Semite!"

"Why do you persist in defying the United Nations?"

"You're an anti-Semite! And so is the United Nations!!!"

Now obviously Obama cannot use the word "Anti-Semite". He uses a different word, "Racist", but the intent is the same.

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end the wars?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end the torture?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why didn't you keep your promise to end domestic spying?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why are you looting the people to make the bankers richer?"

"You must be a racist!"

"Why are you selling us health care reform that doesn't reform anything except the costs (upward)?"

"You must be a racist!"

And so forth and so on, etc.

It is an old trick, and it is a sign of the government's desperation to play this card, since it is already so worn out from Israel's constant over-use.

Last Saturday sent a clear message that the entire American people are united against a common enemy, the government. The government's plan is apparently to try to split us back up along racial lines (See Pills Limbaugh's

comment about needing segregated buses lower down).

History has shown that the US Government will gladly create racial tension between whites and blacks in order to keep us all their slaves!

Do NOT fall for it. You are smarter than that!

Pound Whacked After Mervyn King Admits : Quantitative Easing Isn’t Working

The pound is getting whacked after Mervyn King implicitly admitted that despite printing £175 billion of he might still need to cut rates or even effectively charge banks for putting cash on deposit with the central bank.

We are entering into a monetary policy twilight zone where the governor of the Bank of England, in the words of the FT, has to “entertain more outlandish concepts like negative rates”.

Truth is stubborn and not relative

Interpretations change, perceptions change, knowledge accumulates and grows, but the truth, the real underlying fundamental truth, stays the same.
At the time, when the people still believed the earth was flat, the people had no way to figure it out, since communication was slow and traveling around the world very hard. But no matter what the people believed, the earth was still a sphere and rotating around itself and the sun...
The truth about what happened in reality on the real September 11, 2001 in New York and Washington, this truth also stays the same, for everyone to uncover, recognize and accept.
Afterwards everyone has to adjust his or her belief-system about the world around him to the new found facts, and then decide where to go from there.

Racism isn't the engine driving opposition to Obama

As the president's approval ratings fall and rise and fall again, some of his supporters in journalism and politics are returning to days of old when the label "racist" could end any discussion and force the accused either into stunned silence, or groveling repentance.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Limbaugh: We need segregated buses

In a remark extraordinary even by the standards of conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh, the right-wing radio heavyweight declared on his program Wednesday that the United States needed to return to racially segregated buses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The plan appears to be to try to split America into tiny pieces along racial lines so that we cannot stand up to the government.

Pretty obvious.

Pretty pathetic.

I presume that everyone reading this, regardless of race, is far too smart to fall for such an ancient and obvious trick.

Thanks for Voting for Obama

....the Left has tipped its hand, believing it has a mandate from the American people to quickly ram the last vestiges of socialism down its throat. Obama may have been disingenuous on the campaign trail – with the exception of a few "gaffs" such as the Joe the Plumber remark – but he has exposed himself since taking office, and we owe it all to John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Ottawa sends body bags to Manitoba reserves

Aboriginal leaders in Manitoba are horrified that some of the reserves hardest hit by swine flu in the spring have received dozens of body bags from Health Canada.

The body bags — which were sent to the remote northern reserves of Wasagamack and God's River First Nation — came in a shipment of hand sanitizers and face masks.

'Don't send us body bags. Help us organize; send us medicine.'—Grand Chief David Harper

Grand Chief David Harper, who represents northern First Nations, says body bags send the wrong message and no one can understand why Ottawa would do such a thing.
