  • Timeline The Search For The Northwest Pa...

    The search for a sea route across the top of the world linking Europe to Asia - the fabled Northwest Passage - was one of the most difficult and dangerous in the history of exploration. 2005 marks the 100th anniversary of Roald Amundsen's discovery of the elusive route. The original 1845 expedition led by Sir John Franklin resulted in Franklin and his entire team of 128 men disappearing whilst searching for the passage. What happened to Franklin's expedition is one of the Arctic's most enduring mysteries, Was the expedition poisoned by its own supplies? Did some members of the expedition commit cannibalism or were they killed by the local Inuit? It wasn't until 1903, that an expedition finally found a way through which was lead by Roald Amundsen. His success owed much to the experience of those who had gone before him. But unlike them, he also understood that to survive in such conditions, he had to learn from the native Inuit. The skills Amundsen learnt in the Arctic would later pave the way for his successful assault on the South Pole. The two-part series concentrates on these two famous expeditions. The stories are told using dramatic reconstructions, CGI and documentary techniques. New information sheds light on what happened to Franklin's expedition and also shows how Amundsen was able to succeed when so many before had failed. Documentary first broadcast in 2005.

    Franklin's lost expedition was a British voyage of Arctic exploration led by Captain Sir John Franklin that departed from England in 1845 aboard two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. A Royal Navy officer and experienced explorer, Franklin had served on three previous Arctic expeditions, the latter two as commanding officer. His fourth and last, undertaken when he was 59, was meant to traverse the last unnavigated section of the Northwest Passage. After a few early fatalities, the two ships became icebound in Victoria Strait near King William Island in the Canadian Arctic, in what is today the territory of Nunavut. The entire expedition, comprising 129 men, including Franklin, was lost.

Steed's most famous assistants were intelligent, stylish and assertive women: Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), and later Tara King (Linda Thorson). Later episodes increasingly incorporated elements of science fiction and fantasy, parody and British eccentricity. The Avengers ran from 1961 until 1969, screening as one-hour episodes its entire run.

  • Operation Mind Control - Researcher's Ed...

    1978: Operation Mind Control by Walter Bowart

    The book is out of print, but a “Researchers Edition“ (2nd ed. 1994) is online. Walter Bowart was the first author to argue that the U.S. government conducted covert psychological experiments on unwitting Americans; he did so armed with key documents he had obtained under FOIA.

    Bowart coined the name “Cryptocracy” a compound of “crypto”, meaning “secret,” and “cracy,” meaning “rule, government, governing body.”

    “The ‘cryptocracy’ then is the secret government whose identity and whereabouts have slowly and reluctantly been hinted at by the Congress through its investigations into Watergate, the CIA, and the rest of the intelligence community. . . The cryptocracy invades the privacy of citizens and corporations. It meddles, often violently, in the internal politics of foreign countries, and has hired, trained, and equipped mind-controlled assassins for the murder of heads of state. . . . The story within the story, I discovered, is an astonishing one of a psychological war waged by the U.S. cryptocracy against the American people.”

    This Cryptocracy, he argues, has waged a psychological war against the American people, by invading the privacy of citizens and corporations, and meddling, often violently, in the internal politics of foreign nations using trained mind-controlled assassins for the murder of heads of state. Bowart notes that the CIA is near the top of the pyramid, but it is not alone.

    Richard Condon, author of the (fictional) Manchurian Candidate (1959) wrote the forward to Bowart’s book in 1977:

    “. . .the American secret police has endowed hundreds of scientist at American universities to unravel methods for fracturing American minds. . .this research in so many great halls of learning has exceeded a cost of untold secret millions of dollars. . .indicates that this Grockian entertainment being produced by our secret police is a matter of ambitious policy rather than the happenchance of cloak-and-dagger adventure.”

    “In this book W.H. Bowart has proven each step of this official, terminal, government anarchy even though that appears to be a contradiction in terms. To alter and control human minds is the ultimate anarchy. What is offered by official apologists as a tribute to the deeds of daring-do by romantic spies are acts of hatred and sadism against all people in an insane and degraded determination to extirpate conscience from society.”

    “. . . the astonishing information published in this seminal work of investigative reporting, concerning avenues taken to decision and execution by our secret police to fracture or dissolve human minds, then to operate a Yo-Yo, for purposes of counter-intelligence military ‘efficiency,’ and the destruction of democratic institutions, was drawn directly from federal records and from official laboratory archives of the highest educational purpose — as well as from the reviving memories of those who had already undergone the dehumanizing process.”

    “The prostitution of the mind by our secret police preceded the murder of the mind. The advanced techniques now available to ‘magnetic and attractive’ political personalities, it was necessary to turn out the laboratories of science as a pimp turns out his heartless whores upon the winter streets; our hallowed educators, army and navy and air force commanders and personnel, the beloved medical profession, august and inspiring temples of the law, our esteemed statesmen, and all Americans living and dead. Each one of those groups is involved in this dismembering of the mind.”

    “‘Brainwashing’ per se is no news to any of us. Controlled assassins are not known to us only through fiction. Advertising assaults on behalf of poisonous materials to induce us successfully to buy and consume are early on bastions of mind control.”

    “No one — not anyone — needs theologians to answer the question: ‘Where does the soul live?’ We know the soul lives in the mind because the soul is the mind of intent, of hope, of purpose, of achievement by the spirit beyond achievement by physical action.”

    “W.H. Bowart’s book is also a freezing vision of the mutations of the aspirations of science. Scientists, educators, and their leaders, The Great Men, Having stumbled upon the possibility of controlling the human mind might well have withheld this knowledge from the secret police and brought it forward for all to share, would you not say? If the means are at hand actually to enter and control the mind — not through the far-off smoke signals of psychiatry and psychoanalysis — can we conceive of what might be found in terms of medical triumphs, the conquest of pain and of group hatreds, and mental energy released by unraveling the Garden knots of mental perplexity. . .

    “The question the book puts is this: do you wish this immeasurably important technique to remain as a weapon to be used against you and your children by what Bowart calls the Cryptocracy, or do you wish to use it as a universal key to unlock a thousand new chances that your children will not be murdered in future wars? Today our secret police and our military establishment have demonstrated [ . . .] the powers to create assassins out of our children. The expansion of these powers, which are able to turn young men and women into murderous criminals at will, goes on unchecked by the oft-called ‘investigative’ press, by ‘morals at the bar, in the pulpits, in high government, and on campuses. 

    “Zombie is a quaint, old- fashioned folklore word which [. . .] becomes obscene when our children’s minds are being controlled by any one of dozens of federal secret police agencies. The murders of a few hundred humans by a few hundred other humans is commonplace enough but, for the flavor of horror and terror, of endless nightmare rampant upon a landscape of what was once American democracy, consider this expansion of the Brzezinski epigraph which cannot be repeated often enough: ‘In the technetronic society the trend would seem to be toward the aggregation of the individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities, effectively exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotion and control reason.’”

    Walter Bowart calls attention to the fact that the scientific reports, CIA documents, and histories of CIA’s mind control projects, ignore almost entirely the human factor. “There is no written record of the mental anguish, the torture to the soul that comes from loss of memory and the resulting identity crisis. That mental anguish is the story of mind control.” In his book, Bowart tells the stories told by the “failures” of Operation Mind Control — “failures because the victims remember something; for where mind control is successful there is no memory left.”

    -------------------------------------------------------

    To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he’s doing is good… Ideology – that is what gives devil doing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others’ eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors…

    Known as "America's leading judge-buster," the late Sherman H. Skolnick, one of America's most courageous, and outrageous journalists, suddenly became ill in May of 2006, was rushed to the hospital, and passed away shortly after. Overthrow of the American Republic is a collection of Skolnick's Internet writings that also include 24 articles that were never published on his website. Included are: Coups and Counter-Coups . Disclosures and Financial Crisis? . Black Tuesday: The Big Lie and Dark Truth . Anthrax Frame-Up? . Is the U.S. Presidency Cursed? . FBO Sought Clamp on Bush Stories . Secret Transcripts Expose Bush . Democrats and GOP in Secret Iraq Deal . The Fake Money Business . The Pedophile/Homosexual Underground . Disasters of Convenience . U.S. Civil/Military Insurrection? . The Bush/Blair Bribery Affair . U.S./IRAQ Plots and Secret Weapons . Saddam Hussein and the Exit Money . The Judges and the Shadow Government . The Making and Breaking of Empires .Fraud upon the Court From 1958 to the time of his death, Sherman H. Skolnick was a court reformer, and from 1969 to 1993 alone, twenty judges and over forty attorneys went behind bars as a result of Skolnick's public exposure of their crimes. In 1963 he founded the Citizen's Committee to Clean Up the Courts, a public interest group researching and disclosing certain instances of judicial bribery and political murders. From 1995 on, he was producer/moderator of "BROADSIDES," a one-hour weekly taped public access Chicago Cable TV Show that reached an audience of 400,000 viewers. Judges on the take, some of them termed "banksters" or "banker-judges," drew the attention not only of Skolnick's seasoned Jewish humor but also of his relentless and feared public exposure mechanisms. Since 2003, the learned Skolnick found a home for the last years of his investigative reporting in the Toronto-based internet talk radio and magazine, http: //www.cloakanddagger.de (http: //www.cloakanddagger.ca). He also contributed to http: //www.rense.com and his reports appeared on many other websites. Together with Cloak and Dagger host Lenny Bloom, Skolnick further penned the Middle Finger News series. On his website, Skolnick caricatured himself as Sherlock Holmes peering through his magnifying glass. This symbol has now been transported to the covers of Dandelion's latest compilation of his writings, where it will continue to serve as a reminder of a man who consistently refused to be politically correct even when he knew the consequences of not toeing the party line, and who worked meticulously and indefatigably for the cause of justice.

    BBC BOOK AT BEDTIME

    LINK TO SITE TO CONTINUE:

    Catch-22 is a satirical war novel by American author Joseph Heller. He began writing it in 1953; the novel was first published in 1961. Often cited as one of the most significant novels of the twentieth century, it uses a distinctive non-chronological third-person omniscient narration, describing events from the points of view of different characters. The separate storylines are out of sequence so the timeline develops along with the plot.

    The novel is set during World War II, from 1942 to 1944. It mainly follows the life of antihero Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forces B-25 bombardier. Most of the events in the book occur while the fictional 256th US Army Air Squadron is based on the island of Pianosa, in the Mediterranean Sea, west of Italy, though it also covers episodes from basic training at Lowery Field in Colorado and Air Corps training in Santa Ana, CA. The novel examines the absurdity of war and military life through the experiences of Yossarian and his cohorts, who attempt to maintain their sanity while fulfilling their service requirements so that they may return home.

    In 1994 Heller published a sequel, Closing Time.

    Undoubtedly the “Bible” of conspiracy books, the completely revised and updated Fourth Edition landmark book is filled with information not previously disclosed. It names one of the contenders for the White House who is closely related to one of the oldest “300” families whose fortune was derived from opium trade with China, and no, it is not any of the Bush clan.

    The origin of the Committee of 300 is described, how it has evolved from an opium trading company with a Royal Charter to become the de-facto secret upper-level parallel government of the United States and the world, with only Russia and China standing in opposition to it. A highly organized secret society with tentacles reaching into every level of government in the United States and indeed, the world, backed by massive financing and run by men of the highest education and intelligence, with vast resources at their disposal, manages the thousands of major political and economical and contrived situations.

    In the FOURTH EDITION there is listed some very prominent men who came forward to support the existence of the “300.” One of them predicted twenty years ago that “The United States will be turned into a welfare state” and that “with the exception of Russia all nations would unite in a world alliance (The One World Government).”

    Perhaps the most startling admission of the existence of the super-secret organization came from President Wilson in the last days of his presidency: “Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere, so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” The “power” Wilson was talking about is the Committee of 300 and Wilson knew he did not dare to mention it by name.

  • THE TARGETED DESTRUCTION OF ABEL DANGER:...

    November 6, 2019

    Field McConnell, a career military and commercial pilot, a figure in the 9/11 truth community and co-founder of the alternative news website, Abel Danger was arrested on Monday in Wisconsin, where he resides. He’s awaiting extradition to Broward County, Florida, where he will be held without bail on three felony charges until trial, which could mean several months.

    According to State of the Nation (SOTN), McConnell had been housing investigative reporter, Timothy Holmseth and the two had been working to expose the “legal muscle” behind the global child exploitation and pedophilia blackmail operation headquartered in Broward County of which Jeffrey Epstein was a part.

    SOTN writes, “Not only was Holmseth onto the Epstein deep back story where it concerned high-profile Florida child kidnappings and killings Pedogate-style, such as the Caylee Anthony murder (Orlando, FL) and Haleigh Cummings kidnapping (Putnam County, FL), he was also onto the highly-organized Broward County child exploitation ring…

    “What Field also knew was that the Florida franchise connected directly to the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, the Podestas, and many other Democrat VIPs as well as to Epstein and Company. State Senator Lauren Book is a key player in this Broward operation, especially where it concerns passing critical legislation in Tallahassee…”

    Field’s former associate, David Hawkins joins Jason Goodman on Crowdsource the Truth to make sense of it all.

    Jason says that details of Field’s arrest aren’t clear. Apparently, he violated a court order, possibly a temporary restraining order in connection with broadcasting on the topic of a Broward County attorney, Kim Picazio. The latter has been in a legal dispute for 10 years with Timothy Holmseth, who remains at large.

    It appears that Picazio obtained a court order to prevent Field from broadcasting about her over the Internet. Jason says, “Even if that court order was obtained through…fraudulent allegations…once the order is in place, it is a very poor decision to defy the court order, because it opens up the door for the police to come and arrest you and charge you with defying the court order, the consequences of which are going to jail.”

    David Hawkins explains how the website he founded with Field McConnell in 2006 was named after the Able Danger data mining project, allegedly set up by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Henry Shelton.

    Over time, David began to wonder whether Able Danger “was a trap or you might call it a sandbox into which people who might have a valid line of inquiry that would expose the conspirators behind 9/11 could be seduced, if you will and they’re neutralized.

    “And of course, there’s a variety of ways of neutralizing people. You can kill them but that might be a little clumsy. You can bankrupt them, you can put them in jail, right? Etcetera, etc…

    “So, I think the idea of a sandbox being created and called Able Danger to attract people like me, perhaps Field McConnell and people like you into the sandbox, where we can be surveilled and watched, not necessarily on a hourly basis but to see if any of the writings that I developed at Abel Danger – spelled A-B-E-L would lead them to suspect that I was getting closer to the real conspirators behind 9/11 – and move in some way to neutralize them.

    “So, I think they’ve hijacked and sabotaged the Abel Danger I created for cloud-centric crime-scene investigation.

    David goes on to describe some of the agents of this “sandbox” and it includes many of the same figures, entities and technologies that we find in the Epstein saga.

    “I would like to know the entire circumstances that led Field to believe he could make these kinds of statements in violation of a court order and whether or not he was coerced or tricked into making them…it’s such a blindly stupid error, to make those kind of comments and then repeat them against a court order, there is something else at play…”

    SOTN echoes these thoughts and adds, “Such an arrest, given the flakiness of the charges in the context of today’s utterly lawless cyber-space, must be to some extent for the impactful effect(s) on the Alt Media space. Clearly, the attorney who triggered these warrants — Kim Picazio — has a reputation for using the law to strong-arm anyone who crosses her. Such abuse of the legal system occurs regularly in dark blue Broward County…

    “Because Field McConnell is quite well-known throughout the Alt Media space, the severity of this arrest and detainment without bond will reverberate loudly among the many truth writers and speakers. The NWO perps who are pushing this malicious prosecution aim to intimidate every alternative new website on the Net. The truth will not be tolerated where it concerns such topics as Pedogate.”

    I Spy is an American television secret-agent buddy adventure series. It ran for three seasons on NBC from 1965 to 1968 and teamed US intelligence agents Kelly Robinson (Robert Culp) and Alexander "Scotty" Scott (Bill Cosby), traveling under cover as international "tennis bums". Robinson poses as an amateur with Scott as his trainer, playing against wealthy opponents in return for food and lodging. Their work involved chasing villains, spies, and beautiful women.


    Characters and settings

    I Spy broke ground in that it was the first American television drama to feature a black actor (Cosby) in a lead role. Originally an older actor was slated to play a fatherly mentor to Culp's character. After seeing Cosby performing stand-up comedy on a talk-show, Sheldon Leonard decided to take a chance on hiring him to play opposite Culp. The concept was changed from a mentor-protégé relationship to same-age partners who were equals. It was also notable that Cosby's race was never an issue in any of the stories. Nor was his character in any way subservient to Culp's, with the exception that Culp's "Kelly Robinson" was a more experienced agent. (Culp revealed in his audio commentary on the DVD release that he and Cosby agreed early on that "Our statement is a non-statement" regarding race, and the subject was never discussed again.) As a strait-laced Rhodes Scholar fluent in many languages, Cosby's "Scotty" was really the brains of the team. His partner was the athlete and playboy who lived by his wits.


    I Spy was a trailblazer in its use of exotic international locations in an attempt to emulate the James Bond film series. This was unique for a television show, especially since the series actually filmed its lead actors at locations ranging from Spain to Japan, rather than relying on stock footage. (Compare with the recent series, Alias, which also utilized worldwide settings but rarely filmed outside the Los Angeles region, and I Spy's contemporaries Mission: Impossible & The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (Also on NBC), which were completely filmed on the Desilu and MGM back lots.) Each season the producers would select four or five scenic locations around the world and create stories that took advantage of the local attractions. Episodes were filmed in Athens, Rome, Florence, Madrid, Venice, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Acapulco, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Morocco.


    The success of the show is attributed to the chemistry between Culp and Cosby. Fans tuned in more for their hip banter than for the espionage stories, making I Spy a leader in the buddy genre. The two actors quickly developed a close friendship that mirrored their on-screen characters, a friendship that would last until Culp's death in 2010. The show also coined unique phrases that, briefly, became catchphrases, such as "wonderfulness". Wonderfulness was used as the title of one of Cosby's albums of stand-up comedy released concurrently with the series. Cosby also occasionally slipped in bits of his comic routines during his improvised badinage with Culp. (In one episode Scott, being interrogated under the influence of drugs, says his name is Fat Albert.) Many details of Cosby's life were also written into his character. Scott does not drink or smoke—while Kelly Robinson does both. There are frequent references to Scott's childhood in Philadelphia and attending Temple University (Cosby is sometimes seen wearing his own Temple sweatshirt), and in the "Cops and Robbers" episode, Scotty returns home to Philadelphia to revisit his old neighborhood.


    It's All Done with Mirrors Episode aired 13 April 1966

    Sinister Soviet scientist Dr. Karolyi kidnaps Kelly and brainwashes him into believing Scott is a traitor who must be killed.

    Nowhere Man is an American television series that aired from 1995 to 1996 starring Bruce Greenwood. Created by Lawrence Hertzog, the series aired Monday nights on UPN. Despite critical acclaim, including TV Guide's label of "The season's coolest hit," the show was cancelled after one season.

    Overview

    Nowhere Man is the story of photojournalist Thomas Veil, who discovers that his life has been abruptly "erased": his friends claim not to know him, his wife claims not to recognize him and is living with another man. His ATM cards and credit cards no longer work. His best friend turns up dead. His private studio is now owned by someone else. His mother, recovering from a stroke, is incapable of confirming his existence. He is ejected from his favorite restaurant as a total lunatic. In the course of a single evening, every trace of Tom's identity is gone.


    Tom believes this is a conspiracy related to a photograph he took a year earlier, depicting four men being hanged in South America by what appear to be US soldiers. The only evidence Tom has of his past are the negatives of that photograph. A mysterious organization covertly pursues Tom in search of the negatives. The series revolves around Veil's attempts to get his life back by trying to find out more about the organization, while also trying to keep the negative safe.


    In the final episode, "Gemini", it is revealed that Tom had been captured by the organization prior to the events of the series' first episode, and that all his memories of his life, including his marriage and even his name, had been implanted as part of a brainwashing experiment known as Project Marathon. He learns that he is actually a covert government operative codenamed "Gemini", and is part of a secret task force called "Heritage House", which was formed to investigate the organization and Project Marathon. He also learns that his copy of the "Hidden Agenda" photograph, as well as his memories of having taken it, have been altered, and that the original negative shows that the four men being lynched are actually U.S. senators being murdered by the organization.


    Tom finds out the negative "Hidden Agenda" photograph is not real and the whole thing was a set-up. He questions the "number two man at the FBI" at gunpoint, but the man kills himself rather than risk revealing information under torture. The series ends with Tom watching a videotape that had been in the FBI man's possession, a film that finally explains everything; it shows "Tom" sitting in a chair under the influence being brainwashed into believing he's "Thomas Veil" and the life he's been living. The tape reveals that he works for the FBI and this is all a training exercise.


    1 "Absolute Zero" Tobe Hooper Lawrence Hertzog August 28, 1995

    Thomas J. Veil is a photojournalist living in Evanston, Illinois. During a quiet dinner with his wife Alyson (Megan Gallagher), Veil goes to the bathroom for a smoke.

He begins to unravel as he discovers that his wife is a part of whatever is happening to him. After being confined to Calaway Psychiatric Hospital, he is placed in the care of a Dr. Walter Bellamy (Michael Tucker), who may or may not be trying to help him get better. As he commiserates with fellow patient Eddie Powers (Ted Levine), who mysteriously seems to understand what Veil is going through, Veil begins to realize that his former life has been erased by a shadowy conspiracy and that his troubles are tied to a photograph he took entitled "Hidden Agenda".

    Agafia Karpovna Lykova (born 17 April 1944) is a Russian Old Believer, part of the Lykov family, who has lived alone in the Taiga for most of her life. She currently resides in the Western Sayan mountains, in the Republic of Khakassia. Lykova became a national phenomenon in the early 1980s when Vasily Peskov published articles about her family and their extreme isolation from the rest of society. Lykova is the sole surviving member of the family and has been mostly self-sufficient since 1988, when her father died. In 2014, she wrote a letter that was published online, requesting anyone to come to her home to be her helper as her "health is waning".

    Early life

    Lykova was born in a hollowed out pine washtub in 1944 to Karp Osipovich Lykov and Akulina Lykova. She was their fourth child, and the second to be born in the Taiga.


    Lykova lives 3,444 ft (1,050 m) up a remote mountainside in the Abakan Range, 150 mi (240 km) away from the nearest town. For the first 35 years of her life, Lykova did not have contact with anyone outside of her immediate family. Information about the outside world came from her father's stories and the family's Russian Orthodox Bible. 


    In the summer of 1978, a group of four geologists discovered the family by chance, while circling the area in a helicopter. The scientists reported that Lykova spoke a language “distorted by a lifetime of isolation” that sounded akin to a “slow, blurred cooing.” This unusual speech led to the misconception that Lykova was mentally disabled. Later, after observing her skill in hunting, cooking, sewing, reading and construction, this original misconception was revised. Peskov's book reports that Lykova's vocabulary expanded as she made further contact with the larger world, and he reports many of her uses of "unexpected" words in conversation.


    Isolation

    In 70 years, Lykova has ventured out of the family settlement six times. The first time was in the 1980s, shortly after Vasily Peskov's articles about the family's isolation turned them into a national phenomenon. The Soviet Government paid for her to tour the Soviet Union for a month, during which time she saw planes, horses, cars and money for the first time. Since then, she has only left to seek medical treatment, visit distant relatives and to meet other Old Believers.

    Lykova prefers her life in the Taiga to life in the larger towns or cities. She claims that the air and water outside of the Taiga makes her sick. She also said that she finds the busy roads frightening. In 2011 Agafia formally re-joined Belokrinitskaya branch of Russian Old Believers Orthodox Church during a visit by Metropolitam Korniliy (Titov) coincidental with her 69th birthday. In 2014, she wrote a letter that was published online, requesting anyone to come to her home to be her helper as her "health is waning". She claimed in that letter to have "a lump on [her] right breast", a possible sign that she has developed cancer. 


    In January 2016, it was reported that Lykova was airlifted to a hospital due to leg pain. Agafia was treated at a hospital in Tashtagol, and planned to return to the wilderness once emergency services were able to airlift her home.
