I have just received a phonecall from Mike Ruppert. The FTW offices have been burglarized, the doors smashed with sledgehammers and every computer broken. Mike's fine (thank God!!!) and I believe we know who did it but FTW is non-operational at this moment. However, the blog is up and running.

Thank you for you patience.

Thank you Gail. The sympathy and outrage are appreciated.

Fortunately, as I said, it looks as though the authorities have a handle on this incident. We can all get back to our usual worries and preparations.

Sorry this has happened to From The Wilderness. So long as everyone including you at FTW is okay, that is the most important thing!

Remember how I told you about those illegal loggers that live in ........ [name removed by ftw admin]-hope that wasn't it-or anyone watching my machines...on the other hand could be anyone in the govenment-look at it as a sign of how effective he is becoming.Please notify all the people that are subscribers.

FTW admin adds: Thank you. Bear in mind the police seem to know who this was. We should hold off on speculation, however natural it may be.

I also fear for the staff. Especially I am worried about Catherine after her expose. Take more precautions for your own safety.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. I'm not entirely suprised, but saddened. Let us know how we can help get you back up and running.

I also hope you folks at FTW will talk to us about who did this and how we can fight back.

My thoughts are with you all at FTW

Thank you, Tiguhs, for using the word 'likely.' We need to avoid leaping to conclusions here.
