How U.S. Military Intelligence Got Bollyn Banned from RMN
February 15, 2008
Note to Readers:
After 6 years, I have been permanently banned from posting on Rumor Mill News (RMN at www.rumormillnews.com ) after receiving email from a fictitious name writing from the U.S. Army Intelligence. The note began by specifically saying that the sender would recommend to Rayelan of RMN that I “not be allowed to post.”
The note came from the home of U.S. Army Intelligence at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. The note, which came through the RMN website, was a rather incoherent response to my critical article about the republishing of the anti-Islamic cartoons in Denmark.
The writer at Fort Huachuca, using the fictitious name “Herb Lane,” began his Valentine’s Day note thusly:
Personally I would recommend to Rayelan that you not be allowed to post.
I saw that this bizarre note was not really coming from a private citizen named “Herb Lane” but came from a U.S. military computer at the training center for U.S. Army Intelligence. As an American with a strong sense of the right of free speech, I was naturally incensed.
Valentine’s Day is also my birthday and I understood this was my present from U.S. Army Intelligence, where Mark Lane of American Free Press also happened to begin his career.
I posted a quick note about this hate mail from U.S. Army Intelligence on Rumor Mill News under the title “Bollyn Receives Anti-Islamic Hate Mail from U.S. Army Intelligence.”
The writer from Fort Huachuca exhibited the rabid anti-Islamic world view that has long contaminated the thinking of the U.S. military.
The writer from U.S. Army Intelligence is evidently on a first-name basis with Rayelan, who runs Rumor Mill News. In any case, Rayelan was very quick to heed his recommendation. Within hours of this posting I was permanently “decomissioned” from RMN.
When I discovered that I was unable to post on RMN, I wrote to Rayelan:
How odd. I am unable to log onto RMN the day after the U.S. Army Intelligence said I should be banned. Have I been banned from RMN? If not, how can I log on? Please advise.
Within hours I received this termination notice from Zapper, the webmaster at RMN:
…We appreciate your hard work and efforts over the years, even in the face of some pretty severe personal consequences you’ve endured.
The decision to decommision you, however, is final.
The whole story will be posted on my website on Monday, February 18.
Now for the urgent story about SSRI anti-depressants and the latest tragic school shooting, this time by my home in Illinois…
