Aussie Govt. Whitewashes FBI Assassination Rendition Try For Former Spy

Gwenyth Todd in Iraq
Five years ago, an American woman serving in Bahrain single handedly stopped the United States government from a criminal attack on Iran and a series of “false flag” terror attacks on American troops and ships in the region.

American Neocons and Israeli lobby decided this was their last chance to start a war, one that would saddle the next president with a disaster of unprecedented proportions, fighting 3 wars during America’s Bush driven economic collapse.

Aussie Govt. Whitewashes FBI Assassination Rendition Try For Former Spy Gwyneth Todd…
Former NSC Desk Chief Angered At Cover-Up

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Today, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that the government of Australia found FBI agent Bill Spenser, who calls himself “William Phelps” and identifies himself as a US passport official “not guilty of serious wrongdoing” in his attempt to enter the home of Gwyneth Todd, wife of a senior Australian defense official and associate editor of America’s military and intelligence publication, Veterans Today.

”I can’t imagine why America allowed him to get away with it, and even further I can’t imagine how Australia would allow an American to run roughshod over them,” Ms Todd, who lives in Canberra, told The Age yesterday.

The Age revealed the FBI intrusion days after it occurred and  earlier this  month received a copy of the Defence Security Agency investigation  into  the matter, via freedom of information laws.

The investigation relied solely on the evidence of the US embassy and  the  federal police, and found that: ”The visit to [Ms Todd's] home by  Mr Spencer  was legitimate and within his authority in Australia.”

That is a view disputed by Saskia Hufnagel from Griffith University’s  Centre  of Excellence in Policing and Security, who said Mr Spencer’s  actions might  have breached Australian sovereignty. ”

If there was an ongoing American investigation and they were questioning this lady as part of the American investigation and they didn’t ask the Australian police … then they breached Australian sovereignty,” she said.

Mr Spencer’s actions, while not illegal, were questionable, she said.  ”He  is, in some way, exerting US powers in a country which is not a US jurisdiction.”

The AFP has also been forced to reject claims by Defence that they cleared Mr  Spencer’s improper visit.

The government failed to consult Todd as to the nature of the occurrence and simply accepted a blanket denial from the US government.  Spenser or “Phelps” as he calls himself is not authorized to work in a law enforcement capacity in Australia.  Representatives of the US embassy had claimed that the Australian Federal Police had authorized “Phelps” or “Spenser,” we aren’t sure if that is his real name either, to question Todd.

Belgium: Exxon-Mobil Manager Shot Dead

Update: Better Translation

Cryptogon reader D has submitted a better English translation of the story:

Sunday night a top executive of the petro-chemical company ExxonMobil was shot dead in the street in Neder-over-Heembeek, near Brussels. Nicholas Mockford was shot in the head twice, when he and his wife were leaving an Italian restaurant around 22h. Witnesses saw two men running away carrying a motorcycle helmet.

The man died on the way to the hospital. His wife Mary was beaten and covered in blood. Police and DA’s office are saying that at this point they aren't excluding any possibilities, from a hit to a carjacking gone wrong. Although the violence used appears to be disproportionate for a carjacking, especially knowing that the killers left the Lexus ATV behind.

Investigators are doing everything they can to locate the perpetrators. They are going through his work at his firm in the hope of finding a clue. ExxonMobil is the company that owns Esso, Mobil and Exxon gas stations.

There’s nothing in English on this yet. All I have is the badly machine translated article from linked below.

Searching around, I found a 2010 tradeshow reference to a Nicholas P. Mockford, Marketing Technical Support Manager, Intermediates Technology, ExxonMobil Chemical Europe Inc.

Via: Translate (Original):

In the Brussels Neder-over-Heembeek is Sunday a top executive of the oil company Exxon Mobil shot dead on the street. Nicholas Mock Ford got two bullets in the head when he was around 22 hours with his wife, an Italian restaurant left. Witnesses saw two men running away with a motorcycle helmet.

The man died on the way to hospital. His wife Mary was beaten and was covered in blood.
