Shout-Out to Fort Huachuca

I checked my sitemeter this morning and it appears that I've had quite a number of visits from the folks at "" -- that's the Army's ISP, "143.81.248.# (Headquarters, USAAISC)" located at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Fort Huachuca is the home of the 111th Military Intelligence Brigade, which conducts training in training in human intelligence (e.g. interrogation, counter-intelligence), imagery intelligence, and electronic intelligence and analysis, etc.

A little over one year ago, it was reported that Blackwater was one of five companies in line for portions of a $15 billion Pentagon contract to counter "narco-terrorism"; four of the five already had operations in Arizona, while Blackwater did not.

Also, since 2004, there have also been allegations that Fort Huachuca has been linked to the teaching of abuse or torture techniques that were used in Abu Ghirab and elsewhere. In October 2007, two Roman Catholic priests, Louie Vitale and Steve Kelly, were sentenced to 5 months imprisonment for trespassing after refusing to depart the installation when authorities refused to accept a letter that would have formally acknowledged a link between Fort Huachuca and training in torture methods.
