Takichi Nishiyama, “Okinawa Secret Pact Scandal”

PDF: http://html.doam.org/archiv/textea/okinawa/takichi_nishiyama2007.pdf

INTERVIEW/ Takichi Nishiyama: Secrets protection law will silence government critics

Takichi Nishiyama, a former investigative journalist, warns that the state secrets protection bill approved by the Abe Cabinet on Oct. 25 will pave the way for “a secretive state that stifles criticism.”

“Democracy in Japan will be in name only, not in substance,” said Nishiyama, 82, who revealed the secret agreements reached by Japan and the United States concerning Okinawa’s reversion to Japanese sovereignty in 1972.

The bill, submitted to the Diet the same day, will toughen penalties on public servants who leak “specified secrets” that could jeopardize Japan’s national security.

Critics say the legislation leaves room for arbitrarily designating confidential information and will hamper the people’s right to know.

Excerpts from Nishiyama’s interview follow.

* * *

In the half century after the end of World War II, Japan has not produced an active grass-roots movement that seeks official and accurate information from the state authorities.

The freedom of information law that took effect in 2001 did not provide for the people’s right to know. And it did not become a major issue when a revised bill including that right was scrapped.

The Japanese seem less interested in demanding the public disclosure of government information compared with other countries.

Few people appear interested in the state secrets protection law. The media, let alone the public, lack the power to pursue the problems inherent in the legislation.

Many secret agreements were concluded (about Okinawa) because the government had little regard for the people.

The Japanese government will try to protect secrets related to its alliance with the United States. The nuclear issue and the secret agreements concerning Okinawa both fall into this category.

The more Japan and the United States become inextricably linked in military terms, the more the conflicts with the Constitution will emerge.

After the Abe administration’s legislation is enacted, the designation of specified secrets can be renewed every five years. If it is extended every time it expires, information inconvenient to the government will never be disclosed.

A secretive state that stifles criticism will emerge, and the state authorities will tighten their control over the people’s access to information. Democracy in Japan will be in name only, not in substance.

Genuine secrets can result from diplomatic negotiations. But it is imperative the public is completely and accurately informed of the outcomes of such negotiations. If the government lies about the negotiations, it should be considered a political crime.

In that sense, the secret agreements on Okinawa constitute a most serious political crime.

While the Tokyo District Court and the Tokyo High Court both said secret deals were concluded, the Liberal Democratic Party government has continued to deny their existence.

The current administration, which has continued to lie to the Diet, is not qualified to submit the bill.

Nishiyama was a reporter for the Mainichi Shimbun and was arrested in 1972 on suspicion of getting a Foreign Ministry clerk to show him confidential diplomatic cables in relation to the secret Japan-U.S. agreements about Okinawa. A guilty verdict against him for violating the National Civil Service Law was finalized in 1978, four years after he left the newspaper.

Big Brother #1984 #1776

Big Brother #1984 #1776

Total: mucho ruido de fondo para contaminar el sonido real, esa cosa denominada “realidad”. El asunto consiste en desviar la atención elevando el nivel del “problema”, desviando la atención desde la masa apática hasta los administradores del régimen sistemático. Como si el “problema” consistiera básicamente en un enredo de la altas esferas, donde la élite de la dominación burocrática se entretuviera espiándose entre sí por puro aburrimiento y los ciudadanos que integran la masa sucia fueran meros espectadores poco atentos, devaluados, obviados descaradamente, prescindibles, de la resolución de divergencias menudas sobre temas menores que solo incumben a los “altos”. Los “medios” y los “bajos” al margen, pero no, la verdad es fundamentalmente otra y es que los gobiernos que resultan de nuestros votos en nombre de la seguridad nacional se dedican a espiarnos a nosotros con una intensidad y una dedicación obsesivas, financiando sus actividades ocultas y secretas con el producto del sudor de nuestra frente via impuestos, todo muy legal a simple vista, pero NO. Porque los fondos provienen de actividades legales, alegales e ilegales. Así se practica una delincuencia de “alto vuelo” en nombre del pueblo y para el pueblo, cuando la verdad es que la rebaja indecente de nuestras libertades civiles es una obscenidad inadmisible, regular desde la mentira, inventar alegremente “norma” desde la trampa y el atajo para resolver pretendidamente problemas “creados” por injerencias bélicas, políticas suicidas, megalomanías personales, narcisismos de pacotilla, estrategias de intervención bizarras, intromisiones económicas intolerables y perversas, obscenidad inadmisible como digo con la coartada de asegurar nuestra seguridad. Esta vigilancia obstinada, practicada por una porción menor de funcionarios con privilegios legales, formales y morales desorbitados, que actuan con una impunidad repugnante, todo un poder enfrentado al primer poder de la ciudadanía soberana, afecta inaceptablemente a todos y cada uno de los “ordenes” de nuestra vida e influye en TODO, porque al final lo regula TODO, desde el precio del pan hasta la dirección de la investigación tecnológica, TODO, en su propio beneficio, NO en el nuestro. No cumplen con su obligación, no rinden cuentas, ocultan actividades e información a los dirigentes, gestionan la información proporcionando datos irrelevantes, falsos o contaminados, para impulsar desde los gobiernos ( así legalizan sus actividades como se blanquea el dinero ), proyectos y planesparticulares, privados, participando en un juego de poder atroz que ocasiona males infernales. Si los gobiernos actuales ( con el respaldo de la ciudadanía ) no responden de inmediato poniendo verdadera LEY y verdadero ORDEN en esos complejos escindidos del poder real constituido, delincuentes globales, actuantes por su cuenta, utilizando el poder judicial para regular democráticamente ese CISMA peligrosísimo, corremos el peligro real, creerme, de perder nuestras libertades, nuestras democracias, nuestros sueños y esperanzas. RESCATEMOS NUESTRAS LIBERTADES YA, AHORA. Atentamente.

Iran-Contra Redux? Prince Bandar Heads Secret Saudi-CIA Effort to Aid Syrian Rebels, Topple Assad


The Wall Street Journal recently revealed new details about how Prince Bandar bin Sultan al-Saud — Saudi’s former ambassador to the United States — is leading the effort to prop up the Syrian rebels. Intelligence agents from Saudi Arabia, the United States, Jordan and other allied states are working at a secret joint operations center in Jordan to train and arm hand-picked Syrian rebels. The Journal also reports Prince Bandar has been jetting from covert command centers near the Syrian front lines to the Élysée Palace in Paris and the Kremlin in Moscow, seeking to undermine the Assad regime. “Really what he’s doing is he’s reprising a role that he played in the 1980s when he worked with the Reagan administration to arrange money and arms for mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan and also worked with the CIAin Nicaragua to support the Contras,” says Wall Street Journal reporter Adam Entous. “So in many ways this is a very familiar position for Prince Bandar, and it’s amazing to see the extent to which veterans of the CIA were excited to see him come back because, in the words of a diplomat who knows Bandar, he brings the Arabic term wasta, which means under-the-table clout. You know his checks are not going to bounce and that he’ll be able to deliver the money from the Saudis.”

JUAN GONZÁLEZ: At the G-20 Summit in Saint Petersburg, Russian and China officials, as well as U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, are urging the United States not to bomb Syria in response to last month’s chemical weapons attack. The U.N.’s Ban Ki-moon said, quote, “Let us remember: Every day that we lose is a day when scores of innocent civilians die. There is no military solution.” Ban Ki-moon has repeatedly said a U.S. strike without authorization from the U.N. Security Council would be illegal. But on Thursday the Obama administration declared there is, quote, “no viable path forward” in the U.N. Security Council on Syria. U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power has accused Russia of holding the U.N. Security Council hostage.

SAMANTHA POWER: I was present in the meeting where the U.K. laid down the resolution. And everything in that meeting, in word and in body language, suggests that that resolution has no prospect of being adopted by Russia, in particular. And our view—again, our considered view, after months of efforts on chemical weapons and after two-and-a-half years of efforts on Geneva, on the humanitarian situation, is that there is no viable path forward in the Security Council.

AMY GOODMAN: That’s U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power.
