Among the initial discoveries, said Corsi, is
the existence of an internal Intranet website that never has
been revealed to Congress or the public.
"This private internal website," he claims,
"undoubtedly contains a wealth of documentation that the FOIA
request has so far intentionally excluded."
Corsi told WND the documents reveal hundreds
of internal meetings, memoranda of understanding and other
referenced agreements that have not been disclosed.
"We have here the beginnings of a whitewash,"
he said, "in which SPP evidently thinks the public will be
hoodwinked by a 'Myths vs. Facts' document posted for public
relations purposes on their public website."
Among the documents is an organizational
chart accompanied by a listing of trilateral Mexican, Canadian
and U.S. administrative officers who report on multiple cabinet
level "working groups."
The government watchdog Judicial Watch
announced today it has
of the same documents, including the organizational chart,
which can be seen
in this pdf file, on page seven.
"There is no specific authorization for this
massive administrative-branch integration with Mexico and Canada
other than what amounts to a press conference jointly issued by
President Bush, Mexico's President Vicente Fox, and Canada's
then-Prime Minister Paul Martin on March 23, 2005, at the end of
their summit in Waco, Texas," Corsi said.
Corsi added that even the "Myth
vs. Facts" blurb on the SPP.gov website admits the SPP is
neither a treaty nor a law.
"The Bush administration is trying to create
the infrastructure of a new regional North American government
in stealth fashion, under the radar and out of public view,"
Corsi claims. "Where is Congress, asleep at the wheel?"
The SPP organizational chart Corsi obtained
shows 13 working groups covering a wide range of public policy
issues, including Manufactured Goods; Energy, Food &
Agriculture; Rules of Origin' Health; E-Commerce;
Transportation; Environment; Financial Services; Business
Facilitation; External Threats to North America; Streamlined &
Secured Shared Borders; and Prevention/Response within North
U.S. administrative-branch officers
participating in these working groups are drawn from the U.S.
departments of State, Homeland Security, Commerce, Treasury,
Agriculture, Transportation, Energy, Health and Human Services,
and the office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
The released documents affirm that
counterparts from official governmental agencies in Mexico and
Canada are combined with the U.S. administrative branch to form
new trilateral "working groups" that actively rewrite U.S.
administrative law to "harmonize" or "integrate" with
administrative law in Mexico and Canada.
"What we have here amounts to an
administrative coup d'etat," Corsi told WND. "Where does the
Bush administration get the congressional authorization to
invite two foreign nations to the table to rewrite U.S. law?"
