Who is Delmart Edward Joseph Michael Vreeland II?
Something about the events of September 11 really bugs me. Nobody
from the federal government has apologized! Should they? Yes! Why?
The Constitution of the United States begins this way: "We the
People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the
common defense, …" So much for domestic tranquility and
providing for the common defense. Washington has failed us
Maybe I missed something. Have you heard any of the D.C. Big Wigs
apologize? Has George W. told anyone how sorry he is that the
government screwed up? Has Bill Clinton admitted he was wrong to cut
all those military and intelligence budgets? Has anyone been fired
for this catastrophe?
Think about it: Doesn't this all out war on terrorists that's
slated to go on for years seem a bit overblown? When was the last
time a world leader told everyone, "If you're not with us, then
you're against us?" Yet George W. recently said that he doesn't care
about Osama Bin Laden anymore. It's quite odd. Don't you wonder?
Consider this: http://www.dictionary.com/
defines conspiracy as "… an agreement, between two or more persons,
to commit a crime in concert, as treason; a plot." "Theory" is
defined as "a concept that is not yet verified but that if true
would explain certain facts or phenomena." However, put those two
words together and you have another matter entirely. A "conspiracy
theory" is something only lunatics give any credence.
Consider some facts then, no theory here: On September 11, 2001
commercial airliners were used to attack the United States.
Within a few days the U.S. produced a list of 22 Middle
Eastern hijackers and Osama Bin Laden, a one time CIA ally, was
fingered as the mastermind behind the attacks. As many as 1000
individuals were "detained" because they had contact with the
The September 11 carnage was the consummation of a carefully
executed plan, a conspiracy. The government's explanation for who
did it and how it was done is their "conspiracy theory."
Let's view the government's conspiracy theory through the same
eyes they view the theory that Oswald was not the only shooter, or
the theory that Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols did not act alone.
The federal government would have us believe an enormously wealthy
cave dweller halfway around the world orchestrated the activities of
two dozen religious fanatics who the mainstream media tell us
belonged to "tribes". This evil mastermind, using his laptop
computer, saw to it that these violent suicidal villains, and their
1000 accomplices, went unnoticed in a foreign land for at least two
years as they learned how to fly commercial jets and prepared to
destroy famous landmarks in the most powerful nation on the planet,
one of which was already bombed on February 26, 1993. All the while,
tens of thousands of our own operatives using the world's most
sophisticated surveillance technology, members of over three dozen
known intelligence and security agencies that are funded by tens of
billions of tax dollars, had no clue the September 11 attack was
coming. A conspiracy theory indeed!
What if, as happened prior to the Oklahoma City bombing, the
government received "credible" information that a terrorist attack
was imminent? What if they chose to ignore "credible" information
just like they ignored it regarding the Murrah Building? Even worse,
what if they chose to bury it and eliminate the people who knew?
Delmart Edward Joseph Michael Vreeland II is a Lieutenant who
worked for the United States Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). He
has asked for political asylum in Canada. I had the opportunity to
interview Lt. Vreeland in several phone conversations.
"Mike" Vreeland was born in Mason, Michigan in 1966. He liked to
play ice hockey and do the things boys do, but he was not your
average young man. Vreeland had an IQ of 171 and started college
while he was finishing high school. He graduated from college and
enlisted in the United States Navy in 1984.
Eventually Vreeland became a member of an Unofficial Intelligence
Investigation Division (UID). In September of 2000 Vreeland was sent
to Moscow to work with a Canadian systems analyst named Marc
Bastien. They worked together closely for three months analyzing
weapons systems. Vreeland came into possession of documents
intercepted from a foreign agent that foretold of a September 2001
attack on the World Trade Center in New York City. He alerted his
superiors and was ordered to return to North America with the
papers. Bastien remained in Moscow. On December 4, 2000 Vreeland
arrived in Toronto to meet his contact and forward the
documentation. However, his contact's behavior spooked Vreeland and
he substituted meaningless backup documents for the originals.
Vreeland then made contact with his superiors who ordered him to set
up a new meeting for December 6, 2000 to deliver the genuine
information. Again sensing trouble Vreeland went to the second
meeting without any documents. He was met by Canadian authorities
who arrested and jailed him on charges of fraud, uttering threats,
obstruction of justice, using false identification and interfering
with an officer in the line of duty. Vreeland hid the documents
intercepted in Moscow in a secure location where they remain
Canada has laws similar to those of the United States regarding
how long someone may be kept prisoner without allowing him to
exercise his rights to a hearing and/or other legal remedies.
Vreeland was confined by a high level bureaucracy as well as his
cell. His lawyers made numerous attempts to speak with the Solicitor
General of Canada and the Director of the Canadian Security
Intelligence Service (CSIS), the Canadian equivalent of the CIA.
They contacted officials in the National Security Intelligence
Service (NSIS) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, all to no
avail. He was illegally imprisoned for 15 months.
In June and July of 2001 Vreeland wrote a 37 page document
addressed and intended to be sent to Admiral Vernon Clark, Chief of
Naval Operations. It recounted the information on the intercepted
documents and was to serve as a warning of the coming attacks. In
August of 2001 Vreeland wrote a note with specifics of the attacks
and asked that it be sent to the CSIS. The existence of this note
was not revealed publicly until September 14, 2001.
Vreeland's day in court came in early January of 2002 after an
exhaustive Constitutional motion had been filed with the Canadian
judicial system. The Navy denied Vreeland was an intelligence
operative and said he was merely a run of the mill seaman who was
discharged in 1986 for failure to do his job. They supplied 56 pages
of documentation they said were Vreeland's complete Navy personnel
file. However, the pages were carelessly selected from over 1200
pages that comprise Vreeland's actual military record. Each of them
was numbered and it was clear that over a thousand were missing.
Furthermore, sloppy editing revealed that Vreeland had been given
medical exam by Navy doctors in 1990, four years after his supposed
discharge. The Navy has refused to furnish the remaining
In a court room proceeding on January 10, 2002 Vreeland's lawyer
Paul Slansky had an opportunity to prove Vreeland's claim that he
still worked for the Office of Naval Intelligence and was not let go
for poor performance. The presiding judge agreed to let Slansky call
the Pentagon from the filled courtroom. With at least six witnesses
listening to a speaker phone, Slansky called information and asked
for the main number at the Pentagon. He then called the Pentagon and
asked the operator to see if Lt. Delmart Vreeland was employed
there. All of Vreeland's information was supplied, his rank as a
Lieutenant, his office number, and his direct phone number. These
events and the Navy's problem with his personnel file are all a
matter of court record.
Vreeland was finally released March 13, 2002 by a Toronto
Superior Court. All the charges against him have been dropped. He
has a May 6, 2002 court date to set his extradition hearing for
sometime in September.
Vreeland is now, quite ironically, living in the World Trade
Center in Toronto and is seeking permanent refugee status in Canada.
He hopes to be in a witness protection program and wants the
protection of the United Nations. The United States Navy wants him
for credit card fraud and continues to try to extradite him.
Lieutenant Delmart "Mike" Vreeland fears for his life. He has
good reason. Marc Bastien was murdered on December 12, 2000, eight
days after Vreeland left Moscow.
