Dedication Script and Notes

1 Spy Sting or Iran memorial dedication.

2 Hans Buehler letter and enclosures received from Zurich in mailbox at top of post on Friday January 13, 1995. Swiss Radio audio tape received several days later.

3 ABC News reporters John K Cooley and James Bamford apparently were responsible for Mr Buehler contacting bill late December 1994.

4 Arthur R Morales and William H Payne sued NSA in 1997 for copies to Iran messages given to Iraq during the Irag/Iran war in New Mexico 97 cv 266.

5 Internet post in 2007 alleged that Zbigniew Brzezinski incited Saddam Hussein to attack Iran in 1980.

6 Void judgment 97 cv 266 filing in 2007 included an official court clerk stamp FILED criminal complaint affidavit against Zbigniew Brzezinski for genocide for allegedly inciting Saddam Hussein to attack Iran in 1980.

7 Court, in apparent retaliation, caused $22,036 to be stolen from our Sandia Laboratories Federal Credit Union retirement-protected savings accounts using an unstamped bogus court order with no FILED stamp.

8 Facebook email notification in June August 2012 "Shahab Mozaffari likes 'Google Aboulghassem Zirakzadeh'" show that this matter started in the summer of 1958. And that it is circulation on Facebook in Iran.

9 James Bamford stung NSA initially by informing me in his book The Puzzle Places with reference to NSF Bruce Barnes of NSA's role in discontinuance of support of machine combination and distribution subprogram library. Later by informing the world through authors Shane, Bowman, Wirbel and Grabbe of the spy sting on Iran.

Scorpion silhouette is hence given name 'James'.

Shabhab Mozafair appears to be different than Shahab Mozaffair.

Thursday October 25, 2012 latilla-snap rock assembly completed at about 10:30.

The four and two blocks in the second row were cut from the same block so as to maintain height.

outline of how the mail box stand will look.

T4 landscaper Shane Black will do the final assembly.

Old mail box support extended backwards as counterbalance.

Decision made to use two latillas 30 inches long to support mailbox.

Requirement to make the latillas run through the 11.5 inch long 6 inch snap rock demanded that they
narrowed to allow support of walls.

Two cuts then removal of wood between made room for reciprocating saw to make longitudimal cut.

Side side completed.

Two wall rocks secured with clear RTV.
