1997Catastrophic Terrorism:Elements of a National PolicyByAshton B. Carter, John M. Deutchand Philip D. ZelikowA Report ofA Project of the John F. Kennedy School of GovernmentThis report is the sixth in a series of Preventive Defense Project reports on key applications of Preventive Defense. We are grateful to our colleagues in the Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group and the Visions of Governance for the Twenty-First Century for their collaborationReaders should imagine the possibilities for themselves, because the most serious constraint on current policy is lack of imagination. An act of catastrophic terrorism that killed thousands or tens of thousands of people and/or disrupted the necessities of life for hundreds of thousands, or even millions, would be a watershed event in America’s history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented for peacetime and undermine Americans’ fundamental sense of security within their own borders in a manner akin to the 1949 Soviet atomic bomb test, or perhaps even worse. Constitutional liberties would be challenged as the United States sought to protect itself from further attacks by pressing against allowable limits in surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and the use of deadly force. More violence would follow, either as other terrorists seek to imitate this great "success" or as the United States strikes out at those considered responsible. Like Pearl Harbor, such an event would divide our past and future into a "before" and "after." The effort and resources we devote to averting or containing this threat now, in the "before" period, will seem woeful, even pathetic, when compared to what will happen "after." Our leaders will be judged negligent for not addressing catastrophic terrorism more urgently.In an address at the U.S. Naval Academy, President Clinton announced on May 22, 1998, that we must approach the new terrorist challenges of the 21st century "with the same rigor and determination we applied to the toughest security challenges of this century."Thomas Barnett while at the Naval War College in Newport RI, received the assignment in May of 1998 for the Year 2000 International Security Dimension Project.That project evolved into the New Rulesets Project:http://www.channelingreality.com/The_Coup/Barnett_NPg1.htm - presentation on "Military in the 21st Century" basically globalization of the military - leaving behind a crippled ground force for U.S. territorial defense."I like to describe the brief in this presentation as the product of about a six-year conversation with Art Cebrowski in addition to a long mentoring relationship I’ve had or enjoyed with Hank Gaffney at the Center for Naval Analyses and a similar relationship with retired four-star admiral Bud Flanagan recently of Cantor Fitzgerald. The way I like to describe the conversation with Art is to note that we came to the war college at roughly the same time - summer 1998. He had a list of things he wanted us to study. At the top of that list obviously: net-centric warfare. At that point more glimmer in his eye than the dogma it has become around Washington. At the bottom of that list was a very odd subject - the potential for the year 2000 problem to serve as a security situation around the planet. As the most recent hire and the professor with the least standing, I was given that project. It turned out to be the most fascinating project I’d ever done. It was a grand exploration of how we think about instability and crisis in this interconnected world. And that is really how Art Cebrowski really saw it. He saw it as a heuristic opportunity - an opportunity for teaching-learning because he knew there’d be unprecedented discussions between the defense dept and the rest of the U.S. government, between the government and the private sector and between America and the world. So we created a project and we called it the Year 2000 International Security Dimension Project.New Rulesets is about "Visions of Governance in the Twenty-First Century"Market Based Governance: Supply Side, Demand Side, Upside, and Downside, eds.

Enron's Pug Winokur, Shadow Government Insider
POWER SCAM: THE ENRON BUSH CONNECTION
Enron's Pug Winokur, Shadow Government Insider
On the Enron corporate website, one of the Board of Directors, Herbert S.
"Pug" Winokur, Jr., is described as Chairman and CEO of Capricorn Holdings,
Inc., and Former Senior Executive Vice President, Penn Central Corporation.
As the Insiders' Insider, "Pug" Winokur has been such a permanent fixture
in the Washington Old Boy Network that he's even mentioned in a 1978 book
by Daniel Guttman called "The Shadow Government."
[The Shadow Government of the United States and the Decline of America
[ The Shadow Government http://www.trufax.org/constit/shadow.html ]
[ The Shadow Government of the USA http://jeffshaw.blogspot.com/ ]
Historically Winokur's Capricorn Holdings was used as an investment vehicle
in NHP, an apartment management firm headed by Roderick Heller III.
In turn, NHP's assets included oft-purloined and defaulted HUD Section 8
subsidy housing, a notorious and well-known vehicle for fraud and money
Winokur was also on the Board of Directors of Harvard Endowment Fund,
which purchased 50 percent of NHP, making the prestigious Harvard a
prototypical, but very low-profile, slum landlord. (See Bushwhacked:
HUD Fraud, Spooks and the Slumlords of Harvard")
It should also be noted that George Bush Jr. attended Harvard Business
School. Later, after Bush joined Harken Energy Corp and became a director,
the largest stock position and seat on the board was acquired by Harvard
Ironically, from 1988 to 1997, Winokur was also the Chairman and CEO of
DynCorp, one of the government's largest contractors in data acquisition
Since DynCorp had a contract from the Department of Justice, Winokur
would have profited from the DoJ Asset Seizure Program, as well as HUD's
Operation Safe Home seizures which targeted low-income tenants and
mortgage holders in the inner cities.
In addition DynCorp is one of the lead contractors for the new phony War
on Drugs in South America called "Plan Colombia," another tax-payer
supported scam to bring monies into DynCorp's coffers.
Now there's a guy who understands that the only way to do a deal is to
get it rigged from the very beginning.

(Enron Auditer & Finance) had entirely too much Stock

BUSHWHACKED: HUD Fraud, Spooks and
the Slumlords of Harvard
by Uri Dowbenko
Part 3 -- http://www.conspiracydigest.com/bushwhacked3.html
The Harvard-Bush Connection
Since historically the Chinese Opium Trade and the African Slave Trade
have provided the financial foundation for the Boston "Bluebloods," it should
come as no surprise that the Harvard Endowment Fund and the Harvard
Management Corporation are involved in what can be characterized as shady
enterprise at best -- or criminal activity at worst.
In 1989, the Harvard Endowment Fund, became the 50% owner of HUD
subsidy (Section 8) and non-subsidy apartment buildings through its purchase
of NHP, an apartment management firm, headed by Roderick Heller III.
Since their plan was to do an Initial Public Offering (IPO) or a merger
for NHP, they tried to run up the value by aggressive acquisition of more
apartments, preferably with HUD issued mortgage insurance which could be
defaulted on -- with little or no consequence.
Unfortunately for Harvard, HUD had initiated its new open-disclosure
and performance-based auction under the direction of Hamilton Securities.
When the private market firms battled it out, Harvard was outbid by GE,
Goldman Sachs and Black Rock and its sour grapes apparently turned to
In 1996, according to Fitts, Rod Heller told her that the government
had a "moral obligation" to him and his investors (Harvard Endowment) to
renew or roll over the subsidies with them to maintain their profits.
In other words, an open auction-free marketplace was not acceptable to
the Harvard Boys, since they were operating their business of HUD-backed
corporate welfare-subsidies under what Heller claimed was "an understood
The HUD portfolio of distressed properties had traditionally been
managed to derive profits for private business -- like Harvard Endowment Fund
-- and not the US taxpayers. Since Harvard was used to rigging profits
through politics, not fair business practices, it started losing income
because there were less management fees and the value of its stock started
In 1991, Harvard and Heller asked Fitts to do an investment bank with
them. At the last minute, Harvard Management Company honcho Michael R.
Eisenson told her he wanted 20% of her new company's stock, and the deal was
On the first large HUD loan sale, Eisenson complained to Fitts, "I
don't like this" --referring to Hamilton's use of optimization software to
auction HUD mortgages -- "because the only way we can win is by paying more
than our competitors. We prefer a bid process where we can win by 'gaming it'
because we are 'smarter.'"
For those unfamiliar with Soviet (or is it Harvard-Mob?) terminology,
"smarter" is code language for saying "we can rig it." And "gaming it" means
finding a way of manipulating the players to get control of them, rather than
using the competitive process of free market capitalism.
Eisenson was obviously quite at home with the proverbial "fix."
And who is Mike Eisenson? He was the lead investor who eventually sold
Harvard's share of NHP to the Denver-based AIMCO. His other claim to fame is
that he was on the board of directors of the infamous Harken Energy which
rigged an insider stock deal on behalf of George W. Bush -- not
coincidentally a Harvard grad.
In 1986, a small company called Spectrum 7 (George W. Bush, Chairman
and CEO) was acquired by Harken Energy Corp. After Bush joined Harken, the
largest stock position and seat on its board was acquired by Harvard
Management Co. The oil and gas, real estate and private equity portion of
Harvard Endowment also acquired. Warren Buffet's position in NHP, one of the
largest owners of HUD Section 8 subsidized properties in 1989.
Then the Hamilton Securities initiated HUD loan sales were slowed down
and cancelled, and, of course, Harvard's capital gains were ensured through
an IPO of NHP and through a sale to AIMCO.
The Harken Board gave the Junior Bush $600,000 worth of company stock,
plus a seat on the board, plus a consultancy worth $120,000 a year -- despite
suffering losses of more than $12 million dollars against revenues of $1
billion in 1989.
In 1987 when creditors were threatening to foreclose, the Junior Bush
himself made a trip to Arkansas to meet criminal-banking kingpin Jackson
Stephens, whose Stephens Inc. arranged financing for the faltering Harken
Energy from a subsidiary of the Unon Bank of Switzerland (UBS). Stephens Inc,
of course, had ties to the notorious CIA money laundry bank, the Bank of
Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), where drug trafficking and
arms-smuggling profits mingled freely with looted S&L and fraud-scam proceeds.
Then 1990 Bahrain awarded an exclusive drilling rights contract to
Harken and the Bass brothers added more equity to the deal. Six months later
George Bush Jr. sold off 212,140 shares grossing him $848,560.
When Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait the Harken stock dropped suddenly.
The SEC was not notified, and no action for insider trading was taken against
the Junior Bush. Why? SEC chairman Richard Breeden was a faithful Bush
Today Eisenson, formerly one of the lead investors in NHP and Harken
and one of the primary portfolio managers of Harvard Management, runs a
private equity portfolio called Charlesbank Capital Partners LLC, Boston
which manages $1.4 billion in real estate investments for the Harvard
One of the partners of a company doing business with NHP, Scott
Nordheimer actually admitted to Fitts in June 1996 -- "We tried to get you
fired through the White House and that didn't work. So now the Big Boys got
together, and you're going to jail." Shortly thereafter the qui tam lawsuit
with the bogus whistle-blower charges was filed against Hamilton.
In this complicated story, there's another part of the puzzle which
needs exposure. The Hamilton Bushwhack involved Cargill personnel falsely
accusing the following companies of financial improprieties: Hamilton
Securities, as well as investment bankers Goldman Sachs and Black Rock
Financial, a subsidiary of PNC.
Goldman Sachs has been touted as one of the largest contributors to the
Democratic National Committee and the Clinton-Gore Presidential Campaign.
Was the Hamilton Bushwhack just another outward sign of a covert power
struggle? Because of its implications, it had the potential to lead to
Clinton's impeachment on serious fund raising violations -- a much more
significant charge than the Monica Lewinsky Sexcapades used in the Ken Starr
More Spooky Harvard Connections
The key to the mystery of the Hamilton Bushwhack may ultimately be
found in the relationship between 1) government guaranteed/insured mortgages,
2) asset seizure/forfeitures, and 3) the private companies whose profits
derive from an inside track with both government programs.
More lucrative than mere corporate subsidies, there are entire segments
of mega-business which depend on these government insider deals.
For example, besides Harvard, the other primary investor in apartment
management company NHP was Capricorn Investments and Herbert S. "Pug"
Winokur, former Executive Vice President and Director of Penn Central
Corp, CEO of Capricorn Holdings Inc. and managing partner of three Capricorn
Investors Limited Partnerships, is one of those insiders who may have
benefited from the outrageous assault on Hamilton's open bid auction for
defaulted HUD mortgages.
Not incidentally, from 1988 to 1997, because of his large investments,
Winokur was also the Chairman and CEO of DynCorp, a US government contractor
whose customers include Department of Defense, NASA, Department of State,
EPA, Center for Disease Control, National Institute of Health, the US Postal
Service and other US Government agencies.
Most importantly, according to SEC registration documents (S-1),
DynCorp is the prime servicer on the Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture
Fund, having procured a five year contract with the Department of Justice
worth $217 million from 1993 to 1998. This 1000 person contract required
staffing at over 300 locations in the US and involved support of DoJ's
drug-related asset seizure program. According to SEC documents, DynCorp's
personnel supports "US Attorney Offices that are responsible for
administering the federal asset forfeiture laws."
In other words, DynCorp could have profited first from a successful
seizure of HUD loan sales. Then, DynCorp could have also profited from HUD
"Operation Safe Home" seizures, which target low-income tenants, mortgage
holders and apartment owners. And, since the company has the expertise and
personnel, DynCorp could also have targeted these communities with private
surveillance teams and non-lethal weapons to effect asset seizures using the
phoney War on Drugs as a rationale.
By all accounts, there is at least a major conflict of interest in
Winokur's investments in HUD low income housing and his role in Department of
Imagine -- if you're Winokur, you can make money on defaulted HUD
mortgages, guaranteed by US taxpayers, as well as by kicking out low-income
housing tenants because of drug-related "asset seizures." The
criminal-corporate-government scams don't get any better.
In the case of Hamilton's open-bid auction process on defaulted HUD
mortgages, the potential $4.7 billion seizure of HUD loan sales would have
been a major plum for DynCorp as the prime servicer of the DoJ Asset
By the way, Winokur also had the "foresight" not to board the ill-fated
flight to war-torn Yugoslavia, which took Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown's
There are other spooky connections. According to Newsweek (Feb. 15,
1999), Reston, Virginia based DynCorp is a $1.3 billion firm, which also
trains police in Haiti and works on coca eradication in Colombia, where three
of its American pilots have died since 1997.
Reliable sources allege this shadowy outfit may be a CIA-military
proprietary, in other words, a privatized entity useful for "plausible
deniability." At any rate, it also provides "Yankee Mercenaries" for the
Colombian campaign against drug trafficking. Employing about 30 US Vietnam
War veterans, DynCorp has a $600 million contract to run and maintain the
planes and helicopters used in "anti-drug" efforts in Peru, Bolivia and
Colombia, according to the World Press Review (Nov. 1, 1998).
Postscript: Who says (corporate) crime doesn't pay? According to the
Harvard University Gazette, in June 2000, Herbert S. Winokur Jr. was named to
join the seven-member Harvard Corporation, the University's executive
Doing Business with the Feds
Imagine having to wait more than 4 years to get paid on an invoice.
For more than $2 million.
From the US Government.
That, in short, is what happened to Hamilton Securities.
Doing business with the US Federal Government should come with a
WARNING: Saving money for the taxpayers can be hazardous to your health.
"HUD is withholding about $2 million of funds owed to Hamilton for
services performed for HUD," says Hamilton's President Catherine Austin
Fitts. "We also understand that this with-holding is at the request of the
Justice Department and the HUD Investigator General."
"As the lead investment banker on $10 billion of loan sales, we have
been able to preserve the integrity of these transactions. We intend to take
whatever steps necessary to recover our shareholders" and employees value as
we have done for the US taxpayers. The unsealing of the qui tam lawsuit
should free HUD to meet its outstanding contractual obligations to Hamilton
as quickly as possible."
Toward a Positive Future
And what is Catherine Austin Fitts doing now?
Besides trying to recover her life, she's moving ahead with her new
company called Solari Inc., and her vision, the Solari Investment Model,
community-based programs for local equity building and investment.
"Solari is an investment advisory service, which plans to re engineer
investment and financial structures at a local level, so that new technology
can be integrated into communities to increase jobs and ownership," says
"Over the last ten years, we have prototyped a substantial number of
transactions, venture capital and portfolio strategy to determine the ideal
way to refinance communities in the stock market," she continues. "Our
intention is to create a fund which can finance local development -- and
maintain local control -- through an investment model geared for breakthrough
transformations with individual, organizational and community change."
Her far-reaching vision is an inspiration. "By creating one or two
Solari Stock Corporations (one for real estate and one for venture capital)
through a community offering, and swapping non-voting stock for outstanding
debt," says Fitts, "the community can lower short term debt service and
realign interests between numerous constituents who can be positioned in a
win-win financial model."
The problem, in one sense, is simple. The old model -- the
Soviet-inspired centralized command & control system which rules Washington,
its agencies and the beltway bandits feeding at the trough of corporate
subsidies -- must give way to the new paradigm of the neighborhood investment
model. It's a foregone conclusion: the corrupt system which guarantees
profits to insiders will be swept into the ashcan of history, just as the
Soviet Union and its proxies' brand of communism has been discredited
forever. It's just a matter of time.
In the end -- by building an alignment between spirituality and the
material world -- Catherine Austin Fitts believes that "everyone can prosper
through actions which integrate our spiritual principles in the material
world in which we live and work."

DynCorp, according to Alex Cockburn and Jeff St. Clair, is the nation's twenty-second largest defense contractor with 1998 U.S. Government contract revenues of $475 million. DynCorp, which currently has between 300-600 contracted employees in Colombia, is performing functions like crop eradication (using defoliants - like Vietnam), to sophisticated aerial reconnaissance, to combat advisory roles training military and possibly even paramilitary forces.
When the history of the Colombian War is written it may well be noted that the first U.S. casualties were actually three DynCorp employees killed when their reconnaissance aircraft crashed on a mountaintop in the drug growing regions last summer. DynCorp employees have been described as being arrogant and more than willing to get "wet" by going out on combat missions and engaging in firefights.
A British source reminded us recently that DynCorp Chairman, Pug Winokur, begged out of Commerce Secretary Ron Brown's ill fated last flight in the Balkans.
The same Pug Winokur is on the board of Harvard Endowments which had a behind the scenes hand in destroying the economic research conducted by former Assistant Secretary of Housing, Catherine Austin Fitts in 1996. That research was beginning to illuminate how the drug trade generates profits for Wall Street through the subsidized HUD housing market where Harvard is a heavy investor. . . .

DynCorp, a Delaware corporation, oversees its international operations from its offices in Fort Worth.
The suit filed last August by Lubbock lawyer Kevin Glasheen alleges that DynCorp engaged in racketeering activities in violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and that Johnston was terminated because he refused to commit an illegal act. If Johnston had not reported his fellow employees' alleged unlawful activities, he could have been charged under federal law with misprision of a felony, says Glasheen, a shareholder in Fadduol, Glasheen & Valles in Lubbock.
Glasheen says the issues addressed in the case involve "leading-edge stuff" in employment law. "This is going to be a case of first impression," he says.
Among the allegations in the suit are that the corporation and its employees engaged in peonage and slavery, sexually exploiting children, dealing in obscene material and procuring fraudulent identification documents.
The suit alleges that DynCorp employees purchased the passports of women and girls from Serbian Mafia members who brought them into Bosnia from other Eastern European countries. The corporation's employees sometimes resold the passports, alleges Richard Hardy, an associate with Fadduol, Glasheen who also represents Johnston.

Bush: No 'Fishing' For Info Allowed in Enron Debacle
By Ken Fireman
Newsday Washington Bureau - January 16, 2002
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration feels under no obligation to catalog
all of its contacts with Enron and will resist any "fishing expedition"
aimed at forcing such disclosure, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said
Fleischer also said the Enron affair was of "a totally different nature"
than the Whitewater controversy that embroiled former President Bill Clinton
because "nobody has made any suggestions of wrongdoing by anybody in the
Fleischer's comments, made to reporters as the presidential party flew back
to Washington from New Orleans, came on the heels of a series of disclosures
about previously unknown contacts between the energy company and senior
Over the past six days, the administration has revealed that top Enron
executives called Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill, Treasury Undersecretary
Peter Fisher, Commerce Secretary Don Evans and White House Budget Director
Mitch Daniels. The calls were made in late October and early November, when
Enron was spiraling toward bankruptcy.
Earlier this month, Vice President Dick Cheney's office reluctantly
disclosed - under prodding by Rep. Henry Waxman of California, the ranking
Democrat on the House Government Reform Committee - that he or his staffers
on an energy policy task force had six meetings with Enron executives last
The disclosures have whetted Waxman's appetite. He has written to several
top administration officials demanding more information about their contacts
But Fleischer said that while the administration will respond to specific
questions, especially if they involve allegations of wrongdoing, it does not
feel obligated to explain - or even to investigate internally - the totality
of its contacts with the Houston-based company.
"If there's a suggestion of wrongdoing, we will pursue it," he said. "But in
the absence of that, it's like saying how many times was the White House
contacted by this company or this union. What's the specific question, other
than contact? Because communication is the normal business of government."
When asked how investigators could possibly know if there were any
wrongdoing if they did not first know about the contact, Fleischer said,
"And that is the difference between an open-ended fishing expedition and
answering specific questions when somebody has a suggestion of wrongdoing."

In Congressional Testimony on February 7, 2002, Herbert S. ("Pug") Winokur, Chairman of the Enron Finance Committee, gave an opening statement that he had been "misled" by Enron management, Enron's auditor Arthur Andersen and Enron's counsel Vinson & Elkins.
Every trucker and teacher in my West Tennessee home of Hickory Valley knows that Mr. Winokur's whining is yah-yah.
We are paying $150,000 a year to our Congressman and two Senators to help Mr. Winokur and his pals steal from us. Congress is stalling for time. While Mr. Winokur and his pals dish out "yah-yah" their colleagues shred documents, transfer assets and stolen cash gets tucked away.
As an Assistant Secretary in the first Bush Administration, I cleaned up the Iran Contra financial fraud known as the S&L crisis and the HUD scandal. That was another very expensive stink engineered between Houston and Wall Street banks, just like Enron.
Later as the head of my own private investment bank, I helped clean up the BCCI stealing. With many years experience dealing with high stakes stealing, rest assured you can trust your intuition --- Congress and the Department of Justice has taken the art of cover up and providing air cover to white collar criminals to new heights of mendacity.
Did your Congressional representatives and Attorney General press for seizures of records and cash for the last few months while the money was getting away? No siree!
While Mr. Winokur was spinning his yah-yah, the Wall Street law firms of Sullivan & Cromwell and Covington & Burling were quietly closing the transfer of the Enron Online trading operation to UBS, one of the largest Swiss banks. While Mr. Winokur's whining distracted us through C-SPAN, Wall Street got safely away with the family jewels and dirty laundry.
Not a word did we hear on Thursday about getting back cash or holding up any transfers to a Swiss bank until we are sure we have the investigatory control necessary to protect our interests.
Everyone here in Tennessee knows the expression "Possession is 99% of the law." The real deal is that the Swiss now have possession.
Us folks here in West Tennessee are busy. As I drive all over the country, folks say the same thing wherever I go. We are pressed for time. Somebody has to do the real work while our leaders are preoccupied with stealing our money and keeping us in the dark.
We have more important things to do then to spend hours listening to yah-yah constructed by a team of fancy lawyers whose core competency is lying for money. To buy groceries and health care insurance we need cash. That takes a lot of time if you do it with honest work.
To help my fellow citizens hold Mr. Winokur and our representatives accountable, I drafted a list of follow up questions for Mr. Winokur. I have sent them to him at his last posted e-mail address.
As I finished the questions an e-mail came in from the Chief Information Officer of the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding a prior inquiry I made regarding DynCorp's management of sensitive information systems at the SEC.
Winokur's firm is the lead investor in DynCorp and he is on the DynCorp board. Mr. Winokur's involvement in DynCorp as well as his leadership of the largest private endowment investors in the country, the Harvard Endowment, are integral to his role in the Enron affair and his ability to ensure that no Congressman dare cross him and his pals.
For a copy of the SEC's letter to me, my response to the SEC see Sludge Report #123 You Cant Touch Pug Winokur
My prayer is that these materials will be useful to exercising your responsibility as a citizen, or as a shareholder or constituent in any of the organisations and companies in which Mr. Winokur has power and influence to manage resources on your behalf.
Now its your turn. Do your duty.

REPORT TO SOLARI ACTION NETWORK
February 8, 2002
Mr. Herbert S. ("Pug") Winokur Chairman, Finance Committee, Enron in response to his Congressional testimony today:
Today in testimony you said that the Enron bankruptcy was a result of Enron management, their auditor Arthur Andersen and outside general counsel Vinson Elkins misleading you and the other directors and not doing their job properly.
Can you explain:
1. Why your company DynCorp uses Arthur Andersen as it auditor? I am assuming that you as a lead investor and member of the DynCorp board would not jeopardize your investment and shareholder's investment by retaining an auditor who had misled you and a board in a manner that would lead to such a collapse.
2. Why as a member of Harvard Corporation's board would you have less foresight than your largest money manager Highfields Capital as well as your fellow board members who had the foresight to make substantial profits from selling or shorting Enron stock while you and your board members were in this state of "unaware" you so well described? How is that Highfields had access to this information and you did not?
3. As a member of Harvard Corporation's board and a GP of Capricorn Holding's partnerships, are you taking the appropriate action to have Vinson & Elkins and Arthur Andersen removed from any relationship or work for any of the investments of these entities? Under the laws governing your responsibilities, what is the liability to you and your fellow fiduciaries of permitting these firms to continue if --as you say -- they are responsible for causing the biggest bankruptcy in history and doing so by helping management mislead their own board.
4. Is the timing of the Power's report of the Enron board special committee and your testimony after Arthur Andersen and Enron documents have been shredded and Enron Online (the Enron group with all the large mysterious trading with Citigroup, JP Morgan-Chase, UBS, DeutscheBank and the other large banks active with Enron in the offshore derivative and gold markets) transferred more than coincidental?
5. Given the performance of Enron's auditor Arthur Andersen, do you believe that the federal government should continue to outsource large amounts of its most sensitive information systems, procurement and accounting and payments systems and/or advisory work related to same to Arthur Andersen? What about other auditors who have participated in significant restatements of earnings and who have significant corporate relationships with companies that can benefit from access to sensitive government information or trading on inside information?
6. Do you believe that it is a conflict of interest for your company DynCorp to manage many of the information systems for the people working on criminal and civil investigations (Department of Justice, SEC and FBI) of you and your colleague's role in Enron fraud and shredding of documents/obstruction of justice as well as fraud and obstruction of justice by Enron's auditor Arthur Andersen and attorneys Vinson & Elkins?
7. Would you care to comment on why the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Department of Defense (DOD) and some of the other federal agencies for which your company DynCorp manages highly sensitive information systems are reported to be missing so much money; over $3 trillion since fall of 1997? Do you have any idea where that money is or if it was laundered out of the country into offshore accounts? As a highly experienced financial fiduciary with intimate knowledge of the federal information systems as the former Chairman and current board member of DynCorp, perhaps you could illuminate for us some of the ways that this much money could be fraudulently moved out of the bank accounts held by the NY Fed and its members as depository and trustee for the US Treasury and federal agencies and moved off shore through thousands of off shore subsidiaries and special purpose entities?
8. In light of the fact that the federal government is paying millions to have private contractors manage their accounting and information systems, yet those systems never seem to work and now trillions are missing, would you care to comment as to whether outsourcing our governments financial systems to private contractors whose investors profit from the same or other companies selling good and services to these same agencies makes sense?
9. As chairman of the Enron finance committee and a member of the executive committee are you responsible to ensure that the board hires and retains management, auditors and attorneys who do not mislead the board or others? If that is not your responsibility, whose responsibility is it?
10. Under the standards of sound fiduciary management, you as board member and chair of the Finance Committee are responsible to ensure that the company's finances are properly managed. If you are someone who is so easily misled by management, attorneys and auditors do you consider yourself competent to serve on any boards of directors of organizations with large financial and resource responsibilities? Based on the results to shareholders, creditors and taxpayers, do you draw any connection between the performance of Enron or government agencies such as DOD and HUD losing billions of other people's money and your performance as board member or contractor?
10. Do you believe that Enron should continue to serve as a government contractor when its management, auditors and lawyers are people who you believe would mislead their own board?
