“To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards out of men.”

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

WHY I AM FIGHTING

1.  Blinding Laser Weapons pose a real and present threat to our aircrews and troops.  Their effects can be indiscriminate without causing total blindness.  Current treaties banning their use contain loopholes that are being exploited.  It is my duty and responsibility to alert others to potential threats that may prove to be a danger to them.  It is my goal to do whatever necessary to ensure our troops have the best protection available.

2The KAPITAN MAN and other Russian ships owned by the Far East Shipping Company (FESCO), as well as others, pose a clear and present danger to the National Security of the United States.  As a United States Naval Officer and Intelligence Officer it is also my duty and responsibility to protect our National Security in accordance with my oath, “..to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”

3No man or woman who serves this country in uniform should ever be treated in a manner such as I have been.  No member of the United States Armed Forces should ever be betrayed and abandoned by our government for the sake of political convenience.    I will do whatever is necessary to ensure that all service men and women are afforded the same Constitutional Rights that every other United States citizen enjoys.    

 

THE STORY

In April 1997, the White House, Department of State, Department of Defense (DOD) and the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) orchestrated a cover-up of an Act of War in U.S. waters in which a U.S. Naval Intelligence officer and a Canadian Air Force pilot were permanently wounded.  As a result our National Security has been compromised, and it continues to be on an almost daily basis, with impunity.   Yet once again the Clinton Administration chose to hide the truth, this time because the perpetrators were Russian and the “Cold War” was supposedly over.  I know for a fact that this is not entirely true, a U.S. Naval Officer literally has the scars from this hostile act committed in U.S. waters to prove it.  Considering the magnitude of this incident one would have to be incapable of logical thought to conclude that the final decision wasn’t made by the President himself.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise to those who have faithfully served in the military of their country, that a man who failed to heed the call himself, who was called the “Commander-in-Chief,” would hesitate to abandon one of his own men.

Jdw1His name is Lieutenant Jack Daly.  He is an active duty regular U.S. Naval Intelligence Officer who, prior to his transfer to San Diego in 1998, was stationed at the Canadian Pacific Maritime Forces Command Base, Esquimalt, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.  His intelligence liaison assignment with the Canadian Armed Forces was under the auspices of the Chief of Naval Operations/Intelligence Directorate (CNO/N2) Foreign Intelligence Liaison Officer (FILO) program, managed by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI).  Jack was wounded along with a Canadian Air Force pilot, Capt. Patrick Barnes, aboard a Canadian helicopter on 4 April, 1997, when we were lased (shot/targeted) with a laser by the Russians while on an ONI tasked surveillance flight over the Russian merchant ship KAPITAN MAN just five nautical miles north of Port Angeles, WA in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  As result of this surveillance, both Capt. Barnes and Jack suffered irreparable eye injuries resulting in permanent retinal damage.  Capt. Barnes has been permanently grounded from this incident and has lost all flight qualifications.  He will never fly again.  Both suffer constant agonizing pain in their eyes and their vision continues to worsen from this incident, with little expected relief as there is no known effective medical treatment. Pentagon spokesman, Ken Bacon, reported on 26 June 1997, that their injuries were healed. This is absolutely false!

PatBarnesLT Daly and Capt. Barnes were victims of a an act of war, or an act of terrorism and at a minimum, a crime. The use of lasers to ward off surveillance is a violation of the “Certain Conventional Weapons Convention, Protocol – IV.”  The intelligence community has evidence that this vessel and others like her are associated with the Russian military.  Therefore, this incident can be considered an act of war. Since it has affected the policies of two nations (Canada and the U.S.), by definition it could be considered a terrorist act.  Under current federal law it is a felony to point lasers at aircraft.  It is entirely possible that someone onboard the KAPITAN MAN was using a laser designed to record the acoustic signature of the propeller on the USS Ohio, which was outbound on the surface at the time. When they flew over the KAPITAN MAN it was turned on them knowing that it would cause harm. This was the tactic that the Russians had used numerous times in the past. 

These claims are not without substantiation and there is documentation to support the events as they have transpired.  The recent release of BETRAYAL: How the Clinton Administration Undermined American Security, by Bill Gertz of the Washington Times, reveals the secret decisions made by White House and State Department officials, that allowed the Russian crew of the KAPITAN MAN to get away with committing a hostile act in U.S. waters.  This website provides further evidence revealing how LT Daly and Capt. Barnes were betrayed in the process by the Clinton Administration.
