Rumsfeld, DOD officials attend meeting on erasing North American borders

Judicial Watch says Donald Rumsfeld and other U.S. Defense Department officials have met with other countries' officials to discuss effectively erasing the borders between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

The public-interest group Judicial Watch has released documents pertaining to a meeting last fall in Banff, Alberta (Canada), called the "North American Forum," which was attended by former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other high-level U.S. Department of Defense officials. According to the watchdog group, the meeting was put on by a government agency that wants to "harmonize" the laws throughout North America.

The North American Forum was sponsored by the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SSP). On its government website the SSP says it is a "trilateral effort to increase security and enhance prosperity among the United States, Canada, and Mexico through greater cooperation and information sharing."

Chris Farrell is director of research at Judicial Watch. "They want to harmonize -- that's their word -- rules and regulations and laws between all three countries and try to bring them more and more together and try to erase the boundaries and borders between the three countries," he says.

But Farrell believes some of the objectives of the SSP are not in the best interests of United States citizens. For one thing, the Judicial Watch spokesman takes issue with the idea of taking the North American "grid" the U.S. shares with Canada and integrating it fully with Mexico. "I don't know how that's in our interest," he contends.

Judicial Watch, which works to investigate and prosecutes government corruption, has questioned the fact that the Banff forum was attended by a number of high-level U.S. government and military officials.

One of the more disturbing documents from the North American Forum, the group's director of research notes, contained the phrase "evolution by stealth" in reference to important policy debates, including debate on the North American countries' integration and cooperation.

"So Secretary Rumsfeld goes up to this meeting and with him he brings the Northern Command, the military's Homeland Security command," Farrell says, "and they talk about some pretty disturbing things." Many of the topics discussed at the North American Forum involved potentially "really changing how you and I think of America when it comes to our economic and our energy independence and a variety of other issues," he contends.

We live 4 miles from Ak/Can border; in a rural area. Nobody living around here even recognizes the border unless they are travelling much further than 100 miles or so into Canada. I know Canada is alot different than Mexico but having a can/amer flag on clothesline rope is much nicer than border checkpoint. People on both sides of border travel by boat or snowmachine unimpeded on a daily basis; completely ignoring both governments. Never seen anyone ever questioned about anything, how it should be.

Nothing of the kind, I'm simply stating that part of Northcom's mission is to keep tabs on anything that involves or affects the security of the US, so intimating that "the military was there, so they must be in cahoots with these multinationalists" is either ignorant or paranoid, or both.

You've got everything you need. Joe Farah, WorldNutDaily, Jerry Corsi, and now Judicial Watch. Only one missing I think is DEBKA. Or possibly the National Enquirer.

If you had read the article at all you would have known when it happened and that the documents pertaining to the meeting were just released.

I think if there is any paranoia it is on your part. There was no way to find an inference that the military was represented as anything other than as an observer.

I read enough to find that I didn't believe it and that I don't want to fall into the Let's be scared, very scared crowd.

Why didn't you just say so in the first place. It would have saved me from waisting my time.

It's a story written by a guy who wishes he was still counting chad infested ballots in FL. Bob Woodard finds more interesting conspiracies to write about.

Don't confuse the message with the messenger. This is a Christian writer for a conservative Christian news service reporting on current news without any personal comments.

you should see the ad Larry Klayman took out in Human Events this week -- a full page attack on Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch, looking to raise funds to help him take back control of the organization. I have NEVER seen anything like it.

You answered your own implied question. Canada is not Mexico. If the day comes when 1 million + people cross the Canadian border to live in the US without our permission then people will be as concerned with that border.

Like I said in another thread, I believe I'll be leaving this country sooner rather than later.

Fine.
Do us a favor and take Alec Baldwin with you, OK?
