Recognizing the Deception
During the second Gulf War the Turkish Grand National Assembly failed to approve a government motion authorizing the deployment of some 60,000 U.S. soldiers for military action against the regime of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Denied access to Turkish territory, the Pentagon was forced to drop its plans to invade Iraq from the North, and instead redeployed its troops in Kuwait.
The troops in the North were Saddam’s loyalists as Saddam himself was from Tikrit which is far North of Baghdad. These Northern Iraqi troops had the advantage of witnessing what was happening in the battle to the south long before the battle reached them. The U.S. and coalition forces were making the Russian supplied military weapons look like toys. Indeed the Iraqi tanks were being decimated by our M1 Abrams tanks from miles away and the M1 Abrams were safely out of reach of return fire. Seeing this, the troops in the North took off their uniforms and decided to blend back into society rather than fight. The knew they were going to lose.
This is exactly what Morgellons Watch did, they shut down operations, however, they and their kin did not go away, they are among us, setting up IED’s all along the Morgellons highway. Why did they shut down? It is my belief that they did so because folks around that time were talking about tracking them down to find out who exactly was behind the site. There is no anonymity on the web. Hosting sites are paid for with credit cards, websites have weblogs which record IP addresses for all in-coming and out-going requests. Internet service providers assign IP addresses to individuals when they connect (even if they are non-static dynamic IP’s) and this information is recorded and logged as to who had which IP and when. And finally, information can be obtained via courts, even Presidents of the United States have learned they can be forced to submit to subpoena requests. The Morgellons Watch folks took off their uniforms and returned to society, our society.
However, even while Morgellons Watch was up and running there were certain folks running misdirection campaigns and even conning people on forums to divulge their personal information through various sleazy tricks to gather information on who’s who. Many of you old timers know just what I am talking about. Also, there were others who would recommend dangerous “cures” with the intent to harm (I could recite some of these outlandish suggestions but do not want some desperate sufferer to try such a thing). As time went on I became more and more able to recognize these posers and still see them today. They create user ids on various forums years in advance (and have many laying around for the future) and then they will post some misdirection knowing people trust a user that’s been on the forums for years and not some newbie that just registered. This is very much like a sleeper cell. I am not saying the CDC is behind this activity, I don’t believe that is the case at all.
The CDC Study – Misdirection?
Now, I have been told by folks and so have many other people that the CDC found nothing. I am sure the people who were told this earnestly believe and trust the information they were given. I even relayed on this very blog such un-sourced information, but will be much more careful in the future. However, the beauty of true misdirection is making those you are attempting to misdirect not only buy into the misdirection but also to make them carry the water and thus misdirect others unintentionally. Needless to say, I have become very untrusting when it comes to anything to do with information regarding Morgellons, just as you should not believe everything I say.
See this post for instance (click here), by a supposed participant in the CDC trial claiming that the CDC found nothing. Maybe this person is on the “up and up” but I see several red flags. For instance, claiming that Dr Michelle Pearson of the CDC called her many times over a weekend almost in a panic to see if she was clearing up? Now, to my knowledge, the CDC certainly wasn’t treating anyone. This makes it sound like they were secretly trying to cure people without the participants knowledge. Such a statement ends up spawning even more far fetched rumors making our community look even more “crazy” than it already is. So, one has to ask themselves, Does this seem credible? What possible motive could be behind this? Finally, and maybe this is sheer coincidence, the person signs their full name as "Anna R. Key" which I immediately recognized as "anarchy". Have I become too skeptical? Maybe, but I really don’t think so. I’m not picking on anyone here, this is but one example, I see things on forums every day that I call into question but never openly speak about.
So, my approach is to believe nothing I hear regarding the CDC study or for that matter much of anything else. I’m sorry I posted once before that I too have heard they found nothing because I feel we might be being used. I apologize to you, the readers for doing that. Perhaps the idea is to leak out the information that "we found nothing" and let it percolate through the entire community and then nine months or so later post exactly that; "We found nothing". This way the outrage and surprise will have been mitigated long before the announcement. We will all think to ourselves "No kidding, we already knew this …". Enough said on this issue.
Forget the CDC study and the rumors. There’s so much misdirection going on it’s not worth following. Even the misdirection that there are cover-ups makes us look foolish and more likely to be in need of psychiatric drugs and the accompanying diagnosis to go with them. I try desperately to stay away from conspiracies and all that nonsense but felt this post was needed. If you read some of the replies on the link above from the supposed CDC study participant you can see how careful and how “eyes wide open” we need to approach things.
Instead, let’s focus on getting better. And if "Anna R. Key" is legit, my apologies. I am certainly not saying this person is associated with Morgellons Watch. Nevertheless, I don’t believe 90% of what I read regarding Morgellons. I have great hope however for our future, I’m just very skeptical of most of what goes on, more so on forums than anywhere else.
We all have a responsibility to openly call into question nonsense, because nonsense hurts our cause tremendously and prevents otherwise interested parties from joining in so as not to be discredited by mere association. If I have offended anybody please accept my apologies in advance.
