Preliminary Hearing: Day Three

On the third day of the preliminary hearing yesterday, Wednesday, the entire day was about two different witnesses.

The first was a John Smith working in the NSA, who testified on documents found in Sitchin's home after his arrest in August. The second was a worker in the NYC DA's office who said that she was part of Sitchin's "group".

John Smith (from NSA) talked at length of the many documents. According to him, they found a plan to "destroy" the government in late 2011 and 2012 if the nation did not recognize the 'major threat'. Smith told the court a shocker. He said that according to one paper, Sitchin believed that a planet will cause problems for the Earth when it 'gets closer' in the year 2012. Sitchin believes in aliens, the NSA detective said. On cross, the defense asked what the NSA has to do with the case. He said he would not respond. The Judge did not order him to do so, so the rest of that cross-examination was over.

The second witness, a Jane Doe from the NYC DA's office, admitted she was part of the 'takeover group'. She said that she along with Sitchin and several others, had at least five meetings in March, April, and May 2007 to discuss the takeover plans. According to the story, Sitchin was planning to dismantle the government by destroying the White House and the Supreme Court building in late-2011.

Cross was interesting during this hearing. The defense asked just how many meetings there were and where they were, but no solid answer came out. Jane Doe was asked what kind of explosives would be used and how Sitchin could get past hundreds of Secret Service agents to do such a massive operation. Nothing.

Sorry for the late post, but I am currently in a recess for today's hearing which will likely end in a few minutes.
