Obama's Ambassador Pick Howard Gutman Faces Questions Re US Crimes in Belgium

US President Barack Obama's just-announced choice for US Ambassador to Belgium, Howard W. Gutman, found himself immediately facing a major set of embarrassing questions about criminal charges against the US government which are pending in Belgium, charges involving threats of political murder by US political figures, and illegal US blocking of EU websites.

Almost immediately after his selection as the new US Ambassador to Belgium, Howard Gutman found himself thrown into the middle of a major international legal case, regarding the Bush-era US efforts to silence and possibly murder a political refugee from the US who is now an EU citizen in Belgium, Dr Les (Leslie) Sachs.

With some irony, both Howard Gutman and Dr Les Sachs are graduates of Harvard University, both have Jewish heritage (with Sachs being non-Zionist), and both are veterans of the US Department of Justice.

But now, despite all this in common, Howard Gutman will be representing the US in Belgium, as the US government itself faces criminal conviction in Belgium for seeking to have Sachs murdered and forcing him to become a refugee, for spreading lies and criminal libel about Sachs, and for illegally ordering Google and search engines to block the journalism of Sachs from search results.

The pending criminal charges in Belgium including likely charges against US federal judges, a number of US lawyers, and also the right-wing author and political financier Patricia Cornwell, who has long been involved in spending very large sums to attack and destroy the political refugee Sachs, even after Sachs was able to escape to Europe.

Howard W. Gutman is a lawyer from the Washington, DC, Williams & Connolly law firm, who was a major fundraiser for Obama's campaign, leading to Gutman being rewarded with the position of Ambassador to Belgium.

Gutman and his Williams & Connolly law firm seem quite embarrassed and flustered by the whole legal situation of the US facing criminal charges for banning Sachs' freedom of speech and trying to have Sachs murdered, and have so far not been willing to comment on the case.

Just below are some of the questions served on Gutman about this major US-Belgian-EU legal controversy, first some questions served on Gutman by European journalists including this writer, and then the text of a fax to Mr Gutman sent to him directly by the political refugee Dr Les Sachs himself.

Press query - Howard Gutman in legal case regarding criminal acts in Belgium

Dear Mr Gutman,

Interviewing you about the major legal firestorm into which you step, as you arrive in Belgium as the new US Ambassador for President Obama, regarding the European criminal charges against a number of US figures, associated with quite serious criminal acts that were operated under the supervision of the US Brussels Embassy under your predecessor Sam Fox of the Harbour Group.

Would like to have your comments - or document your stonewalling - regarding your US government committing terrorist acts to murder a political refugee from the US and now EU citizen in Belgium, who is under the protection of members of the Belgian royal household, after former Ambassador Sam Fox oversaw crimes toward having this victim assassinated.

These crimes are verified by DOJ staff as well as the police files here. We already have files from DOJ proving terrorist felonies, scanned and available online, link just below.

This refugee from the US is a fellow graduate with you of Harvard University, a fellow veteran with you of DOJ where he won an award, and also shares Jewish heritage with you.

Yet your government has committed a series of terrorist acts to murder him, because he is a journalist critic of your regime. We want to know your position on these US terrorist crimes in Belgium, as you take up your position.

Eric H Holder Jr is currently developing his own position, which seems to be that there should first be Belgian criminal charges against the US government, before Holder feels strong enough to prosecute felonies involving both US intel agents and US federal judges. Which is going to land you right in the soup.

We have a number of preparatory stories online in independent media before the actual legal procedures begin, but this situation will be front-page across Europe as the formal legal process gets underway. - You can find our own stories via the link below, please note especially these two articles:
« Two EU Writers Under Threat of Murder »
« US Justice sources: US 'Trials' of Political Refugee in Europe Were Both Fraudulent »

The legal charges involve not only threats of political murder, but also your US judges illegally blocking European websites from web search engines, and criminal libel by US media figures, and dishonest US college professors, who have published lies and hoaxes on the internet, to support the victim being murdered in Belgium.

So before you and your colleagues at Williams & Connolly jump on the web and start reading 'law professor' articles on this case, please note that you are likely reading deceptive criminal lies bought by bribery or corrupt influence.

For example, there is false material originating with law Prof Roy Girasa of Pace Univ, working for the friends of Bush to spread lies to murder this victim. Prof Girasa himself now faces criminal charges in Belgium. Prof Girasa is simply a liar and hoax-maker prostituting his 'law professor' identity, and his lies were used to generate other lies and hoaxes on the web. (Feel free to share this with Prof Girasa, we have long been in touch with him, and we have already called him a liar in print.)

If you see any news story or law professor article that tries to claim the case is about some trivial 'plagiarism accusations', you are reading a libellous hoax.

The case is about anti-Semitic threats, extortion, and threats of murder by friends of US Virginia judges, of a quite significant journalist, whose writings have now been exterminated from the internet under illegal orders by US federal judges who want to kill this man.

Another criminal libel spread by your judges and media, is the libel that this journalist Dr Les (Leslie) Sachs, was a 'cyberstalker' because he published accounts and proof of how your US figures threatened to murder him.

The legal process of criminal charges against the US government and US political figures, may commence about the time of your installation and reception here.

Your mafia federal judges from Virginia, even sent harassing e-mails to Belgium, about how they were ordering the victim's websites blocked from search engines, to help kill him.

Thus, very historically this legal case involves criminal and terrorist acts not only by a political fundraiser bribing the Bush family, but also criminal acts of terrorism and harassment committed by federal judges in Virginia.

The funding for the attacks on this dissident mostly came from the right-wing author and financier Patricia Cornwell, who gave the Bush family a USD 1 mill. 'gift' to help ensure she would not be criminally prosecuted under the Bush presidency.

In the initial crimes against the journalist Sachs, as DOJ confirms, Cornwell's lawyers bribed federal Judge Payne to instantly ban the freedom of speech of Sachs, and then friends of Judge Payne - criminals also operating a fake 'foundation' - threatened to torture Sachs to death in a Virginia jail cell, claiming that, without trial or appeal, Sachs almost instantly 'agreed' to have his publishing company destroyed, his freedom banned for the rest of his life, and to pay lifelong extortion money to the friends of the Judge. - Sachs was able to make a narrow to escape to Europe to save his life, where he did much journalism about the corruption of Cornwell and your US judges.

Sachs' journalism about the corruption of 4th Circuit Appeals Judge Harvie Wilkinson, led to Wilkinson not being appointed to the Supreme Court by President Bush. - It seems Wilkinson now wants Sachs banned and dead, and in 2007, Wilkinson supervised a new fake 'proceeding' with 4th Circuit Judges Hudson and Moon, ordering search engines to block the European websites of Sachs.

Cornwell was invited by the judges and by US intel agencies, to commit new counts of perjury and spread hoax 'stalking' stories, to help justify the blocking of the websites of Sachs, so the murder of the journalist Sachs could be completed. - Patrick Fitzgerald took part, representing US intel, supporting these crimes to have Sachs banned and murdered. - The scheme was orchestrated by the WilmerHale law firm and by lawyer Jimmy Morris in Richmond, working as partners with the CIA. - Sam Fox oversaw these criminal acts from the US Brussels Embassy office where you are now heading yourself.

As part of this scheme of racist murder against Sachs, US intel agents and WilmerHale took part in criminal threats and intimidation of Belgian lawyers who had earlier promised to help Sachs against your US government's crimes.

As this whole criminal scheme is now coming unravelled, WilmerHale has now fired the two main lawyers, led by Joan Lukey, who were working to have Sachs murdered. - The NY Times has fired a journalist who sent Sachs hate mail and published lies and libels about him. - Some of the stories that were telling lies about Sachs are being removed from the web by corporate media, who had been spreading the hoax 'stalking' libel and also the 'plagiarism accusation' hoax.

You can educate yourself about the facts here, with articles and scanned copies of DOJ and police files, linked here:


The financier author P Cornwell is most closely associated with the Bushes, but she has also long been known with being a donor to Hillary and her husband, and our understanding is that Hillary would also tend to cover for Cornwell, maybe herself even favour having Sachs being banned and murdered - you will please inform us if that is not her position as State Dept Secretary, once you join Hillary's team.

We want to know if your position would be to try to put an end to these crimes, and to end the violation of Belgian and European laws, whereby the US and now the Obama government, are illegally blocking this man's websites to enable his murder.

Or, Mr Gutman, if you will yourself join the US criminals who are telling lies about Sachs and trying to assassinate him.

We are sure this is a difficult matter for your Williams Connolly firm, which is also likely afraid to deal with the issue of Virginia federal judges involved in extortion and threats of assassination against a political dissident. - Likely you will also want to stay mum about these terrorist criminal acts, but that is going to be difficult given the position you are taking. We will follow up with you in a few days, and we invite any comment of any type from you and your colleagues.

Re: Howard W Gutman role in criminal charges in Belgium
- US government crimes of terrorism and extortion
- illegal US 'orders' to suppress European websites for terrorist purposes

Mr Gutman,

Your own actions and words with regard to the US terrorist crimes committed against me in Belgium, will come to define your entire life and career. Thus it is good you are already informed about the international legal proceedings involving you, right upon your arrival in Belgium.

What you do or don't do, will shape and define the image of the Barack Obama government in Europe – whether, as some Europeans already fear, Mr Obama is just another salesman for a corrupt US political mafia, a US mafia which is even willing to murder European citizens like myself, and brazenly violate EU laws, with the US suppressing European websites to kill innocent people.

Moreover, European businesses are already pulling back from doing enterprise in the US, because of fear that your US federal judges are corrupt, and merely a gangster's mafia for insider US interests.

And now, there will be EU legal proceedings about your US federal judges who menace to murder me, your US judges who held two fake 'show trials' to spread criminal libels about me, your US judges who illegally order the blocking of my EU internet sites and even send harassing e-mails to Belgium. Now as the EU courts proceed to convict your US political figures and judges of terrorist crimes and criminal libel against me – now, business people across Europe will know from these trials, that they should be in total fear of corruption by US judges; that if they dare to visit the US, they too might experience violation of all their human rights, and threats of torture and murder by US judges – just as I have suffered these terrorist offences, not only inside the US, but with your gangster judges and government even criminally harassing me in Belgium.

Mr Gutman, you are already fully aware that your US government and political figures, are guilty beyond any shadow of doubt, of quite serious criminal and terrorist offences against me, as DOJ staff confirm. These crimes extend far beyond the crimes of the drug-addled political financier Patricia Cornwell, and extend through to your US federal judges who took Cornwell's bribery money, your multiple US lawyers engaged in fraud and extortion crimes, and your US government agents who have engaged in criminal acts of extortion and spreading criminal libel since I arrived as a political refugee in Europe.

Mr Gutman, these criminal acts of the friends of George Bush and the George Bush government and Bush's corrupt Ambassador Sam Fox, have now become criminal acts of the Obama government, with every day that you continue your government's criminal offences against me.

Every day that your Obama regime continues to impose the illegal blocking of my own journalism sites from Google and the internet search engines, every day that Holder delays the prosecution of these crimes, every such day is a new criminal and terrorist act against me, a crime toward having me murdered.

Mr Gutman, you know what is your own moral and legal obligation, as you now assume a role as Ambassador of the US government that has been threatening to murder me; and severely violating international treaties and EU laws, by blocking my websites as part of this scheme to carry out the threats to kill me. If you walk into the Embassy job without demanding public prosecution of those who attacked me, you are wilfully guilty of taking on a role of propagandist and accessory to international acts of terrorism and extortion.
