grapecrusher is right, this is 100% speculation about "dark face of jewish nationalism". Jason Bermas' documentary "Fabled Enemies" exposed 10x more information with actual facts about people/companies who create a bona fide threat. My guess is the guy either is a very poor researcher (his credentials are much worse than Robert Gates or Donald Rumsfeld who are both also terrible researchers on paper) or he is just another piece to the CIA/MI6/Mossad operations of deflecting the truth about 9/11
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Jason Bermas isn't the former director of studies at the US Army war college. There is more to come. He is writing a big article on it. Don't throw water on it yet.

The only nation that has benefited from 9/11?

WTF?

The entire purpose of 9/11 was to destroy the industrial world and to end all sovereign states.





9/11, in quite simpler terms, was also a major insurance fraud, and massive insider trading operation, and those objectives were completed essentially by 9/12/2001. Israel benefitted from 9/11 plain and simple. It was an Israeli objective to invade Iraq and that couldn't have happened without a 9/11.




My guess is the guy either is a very poor researcher (his credentials are much worse than Robert Gates or Donald Rumsfeld who are both also terrible researchers on paper) or he is just another piece to the CIA/MI6/Mossad operations of deflecting the truth about 9/11


And exactly what is "the truth" of 9/11 that you charge Sabrosky of deflecting? Also, Sabrosky even said that he didn't even know anything about 9/11 until just a few years ago.

Good to see that interview posted here. Just listened to it somewhere else & came to post it. Maybe the right people can be woken up eventually... We need more people like Dr. Alan Sabrosky who aren't afraid to say those things.

I charge that he is not looking at the banking interests of the royal families primarily:

The House of Windor (which was fabricated)

The House of Orange-Nassau

The House of Rothschild (which is really The House of Bauer)

I charge that he is not looking at the very fact of the State of Israel being a Nazi-Zionist invention which was pushed upon both groups by the same puppeteer royals.

I charge that he should examine the transfer agreement, the industrialists that created both hitler and the zionist state, and the very fact that the bilderberg group oversees all of what happens in Israel as well as their other puppet governments.

I charge that he examine why the man who says he can control the US with the zionist lightning in his eye sockets is in a perpetual coma due to a very timely stroke.

I charge that he examine Ptech and Saudi interests.

I charge that he examine the Carlyle Group, General Electric, IBM, and other international conglomerates who are responsible for the global prison tracking and enslaving grids being institutionalized in the not too distant future.

I charge that special branch and MI6 play as much part in serving the european and rockefeller bankers' fantasies with operations like 9/11 as mossad does.

I charge the very fact that leaving out the overlords and just singling out a single tentacle of the octopus lacks comprehensive analysis, logic, sensibility, and the ability to gather an overall awakening to stop the madness of less than 10,000 psychopaths.

I certainly don't subscribe to the "Israeli only", "Mossad only", or "Zionist-extremist only" models of 911.  Absolutely, any theory that doesn't take into account the Bushes, Carlyle group, Ptech/Promis, Booz Allen Hamilton, and U.S. gov't. involvement is likley entirely incomplete.

That having been said,  it seems quite possible, maybe even likely that the Israelis/Mossad and their supporters in the U.S. played a role, and perhaps a key role in the events of that day.  Sabrosky's "the Israelis did it"does seem entirely too reductionistic and given his realtionship to military and government too convenient.  Maybe, this shows how desperate the other side has become in its efforts to deflect blame/responsibility.

Are elements of the U.S. gov't. who were involved in planning and carrying out these false-flag attacks turning on their Israeli friends, or is this all just a side-show?  Unfortunately, I am beginning to suspect the latter.

The 14 Art Students, it has now been confirmed, were in the World Trade Center Towers with Construction Passes, Connection to Mossad Spy Ring


CoreOfCorruption.com - 4 Suspects in World Trade Center Before 9/11 Doing Construction
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dA9MvV-SrCo&feature=player_embedded


   Part I

October 12, 2009


 I was contacted by an individual who led me to this information about the art students living in WTC Tower 1 before 9/11.

 

In fact, in May of 2000, they were living on the 91st floor where they were doing construction and sleeping in tents. They did have construction passes. I do believe that ACE Elevator and Securicom, as well as Kroll Associates should be focused on, however, this is important information that has never been confirmed, until now.

These art students were apart of the art group, gelitin, and were pulling off a large stunt in the name of art, at least that is the official story. Gelatin is notorious for encouraging and participating in various stunts and elaborate adventures to push art into the pop culture by performing publicity stunts.

 

The project these art students from Austria and Germany were apart of was called, "The B-Thing."

    I am in the process of uploading all of the photos and information to make available to everyone online, so be looking for that soon. In the meantime, I broke the story on Kevin Barret's radio show, "Truth Jihad" which airs every Saturday on American Freedom Radio. The audio from that interview is in the Youtube clip at the top of this post, but if you want to download it, it is at the following link:
    http://radiodujour.wordpress.com/2009/10/10/art-students-camping-on-the-90th-floor/

    The art students released a book about their art event out of Austria and the book is extremely hard to come by. IN fact, it is limited release and most copies are sold, I had to search very hard to find a copy but I found one. Here is a link to one of the stores that used to sell it:
    http://www.artbook.com/3883755079.html

    The New York times did an article on the Gelatin crew made up of up to 14 Austrian and German students. You can view the original New York Times article here:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2001/08/18/nyregion/balcony-scene-unseen-atop-world-episode-trade-center-assumes-mythic-qualities.html

Again, stay tuned for more on this coming in the near future and also sign up on my newsletter here at CoreOfCorruption.com to receive the update on the sequel in the series titled, "Echoes of Treason" which is soon to be released (below video.)

 Background

Don't read this until you have viewed the above.

Here is the older information regarding this Israeli agents who laughed and danced and high-fived when the towers collapsed - for those who still think Arab terrorists with box-cutters did 9-11 - note too the articles of mine (further down) including the Israelis infiltrated at Dulles and Reagan airports on 9-11, each with illegal top security clearances - whom Attorney General Ashcroft quietly sent back home to Israel after holding them, without Guantanamo-style interrogation, for 3 months. They later were on Israeli radio and mentioned, in Hebrew, having been there to record the event.

The Israeli "art student" story, which first surfaced in 2001 in news reports, has yet to be explained by U.S. authorities.

 
A memorandum sent to the 9/11 Commission, and Senate and House intelligence committees in September 2004, suggests that young Israelis who canvassed dozens of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) offices in 2000 and 2001 trying to sell paintings to federal workers, may have been spying not only on the DEA, but also on Arab extremists in the United States - including the Sept. 11 hijackers who were living in Florida and New Jersey.

Many reports describe incidents of government employees spotting individuals in office hallways or elevators carrying large art portfolio cases. The art sellers would typically make a pitch to sell paintings, but if they were told that soliciting in government offices was prohibited, some replied that the art wasn't actually for sale but was promoting a future art show, the DEA report said.

During the first five months of 2001, according to Shea's memorandum, the "Israeli DEA Groups" visited a total of 57 DEA locations - 28 offices and 29 private residences

Other individuals that Shea calls the "Israeli New Jersey Group" were based in Bergen and Hudson counties, in New Jersey, according to the well-annotated memorandum that also cites the 9/11 Commission report, the 2002 congressional intelligence committees' joint inquiry into the terrorist attacks, newspaper and magazine reports, Fox News telecasts, 9/11 hijacker timelines, FBI suspect lists, and an East Rutherford (New Jersey) Police Department report.

Dozens of the more than 100 Israelis were stopped and questioned by DEA agents, and other federal government authorities.

 
The individuals were vague about why they were in the U.S. or what their purpose was for being here. Dozens were arrested for visa violations and deported, according to the memorandum. Many in the groups had served in the military, which is compulsory for Israeli citizens, and group leaders had been in intelligence and electronic communications units.

 
With such expertise, it strikes many as odd that the Israelis would be hawking inexpensive artwork. In the report, the DEA concluded that the agency was being spied on by the Israelis.

In 2001, a Fox News report by Carl Cameron laid out the Israeli spy scenario, however, the story was short-lived, and Shea was told by a representative at the news organization that there was outside pressure to kill the story.

 

    Wayne Madsen Online Journal

    Friday, July 17, 2009

    The way the corporate media would have it believed is that Israeli "art students" who aggressively sell cheap art door-to-door, usually at federal office buildings and the houses of government employees, are merely traveling abroad after their military service in Israel to "see the world." In fact, these "art students" are classic intelligence operatives who have appeared before and after major terrorist events and covert operations conducted by the Mossad.

    WMR has learned that an Israeli art student cased the offices of an investigator of the suspicious February 26, 2004, death of Macedonian President Boris Trajkovski. Trajkovski's Beechcraft King Air 200 crashed near Stolac, Croatia, in southern Bosnia while en route to an investors' conference in Mostar.

    After the crash, U.S. Ambassador to Macedonia Lawrence Butler quickly met with Nikolai Gruevski, the minister of finance in the VMRO-DPMNE government. Gruevski was an ardent supporter of denationalization, a globalist, and supporter of NATO membership for Macedonia. Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski, although a Social Democrat, was also seen as close to the globalists.

    Although Trajkovski, a Methodist minister, was also a member of the VMRO-DPMNE party he was viewed as less accommodating to international demands for privatization of state enterprises in Macedonia.

    After Trajkovski and his party were killed in the plane crash, Macedonian and Bosnian authorities complained that NATO's investigation of the plane crash was secretive and the two countries' aviation authorities were kept in the dark. Many Macedonian officials were opposed to allowing the United States to investigate the crash and there was confusion about who had access to the two "black boxes" on Trajkovski's plane.

    NATO troops stationed in Bosnia were the first to arrive at the crash scene.


  HUNDREDS OF MOSSAD AGENTS CAUGHT RUNNING WILD IN AMERICA
by Warren Royal

We spoke earlier about the five celebrating Israeli "movers", (Mossad agents), who were arrested and placed in solitary confinement for weeks after they were spotted in a white van suspected of attempting to blow up the George Washington Bridge.

 
We also reviewed how the Israeli owner of Urban Moving Systems - Dominick Suter - then suddenly abandoned his "moving company" and fled for Israel on 9-14. But there were still more Israeli "movers" and other Israelis whose actions raise serious suspicions. Even more suspicious is how they are always quietly released and deported.

In October of 2001, three more Israeli "movers" were stopped in Plymouth, PA because of their suspicious behavior. These "movers" were seen dumping furniture near a restaurant dumpster! When the restaurant manager approached the driver, a "Middle Eastern" man later identified as Moshe Elmakias fled the scene. The manager made note of the truck's sign which read "Moving Systems Incorporated" and called the police. When the police spotted the truck, two other Israelis - Ayelet Reisler and Ron Katar began acting suspiciously.

 
The Plymouth police searched the truck and found a video. The Israelis were taken into custody and the video tape was played at the police station. The video revealed footage of Chicago with zoomed in shots of the Sears Tower. The police quickly alerted the FBI and it was also discovered that the Israelis had falsified travel logs and phony paperwork on them. (1)

 
They were also unable to provide a name and telephone number for the customer that they claimed to have been working for. These Israelis were up to some sort of dirty business, and you can be sure it had nothing to do with moving furniture. These Israeli spies may have had a dark sense of humor. The name of their "moving company" actually contained the word MOSSAD embedded inside. Moving Systems Incorporated. MOving SyStems IncorporAteD...MOSSAD

On October 10, 2001, CNN made a brief mention of a foiled terrorist bomb plot in the Mexican Parliament building. They promised to bring any further developments of this story to their viewers, but the incident was never heard of again in America. But the story appeared in bold headlines on the front page of the major Mexican newspapers (2) and was also posted on the official website of the Mexican Justice Department. (3)

 
Two terror suspects were apprehended in the Mexican Chamber of Deputies. Caught red-handed, they had in their possession a high powered gun, nine hand grenades, and C-4 plastic explosives (great stuff for demolishing buildings!) Within days, this blockbuster story not only disappeared from the Mexican press, but the Israelis were quietly released and deported!

 
The two terrorists were Salvador Gerson Sunke and Sar ben Zui. Can you guess what their ethnicity was? Sunke was a Mexican jew and Zui was a colonel with the Israeli special forces (MOSSAD). (4)

The story in El Diario de Mexico went on to reveal that the Zionist terrorists had fake Pakistani passports on them. Can you say "false flag operation?" The probable motive of this particular botched terrorist operation was to involve oil rich Mexico in the "War on Terrorism". (The War on Israel's enemies would be a more accurate description).

 
Mexico is no military power, but the psychological trauma of an "Arab" attack on Mexico would surely have induced Mexico to provide unlimited cheap oil to her American "protector". With cheap oil flowing to America at low prices from Mexico, the US could better afford to break off relations with the oil rich Arab states in general and Saudi Arabia in particular. That's why the planners chose 15 Saudi identities to steal for the 9-11 operation.

Many Mexicans expressed shock at the release of the two Israelis. But when you learn that Mexico's Secretary of Foreign Relations is a Zionist named Jorge Gutman, it's not surprising!

 
The Zionist tentacles reach even into Mexico! La Voz de Aztlan (Mexican-American news service), in it's excellent investigative report revealed:

    "La Voz de Aztlan has learned that the Israeli Embassy used heavy handed measures to have the two Israelis released. Very high level emergency meetings took place between Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Jorge Gutman, General Macedo de la Concha and a top Ariel Sharon envoy who flew to Mexico City specially for that purpose.

     
    Elías Luf of the Israeli Embassy worked night and day and their official spokeswoman Hila Engelhart went into high gear after many hours of complete silence. What went on during those high level meetings no one knows, but many in Mexico are in disbelief at their release." (5)

In November of 2001, 6 more suspicious Israelis were detained in an unspecified mid-eastern state. They had in their possession box cutters, oil pipeline plans, and nuclear power plant plans. (6)

 
The local police called in the Feds and Immigration officials took over the scene and released the men without calling the FBI. The Jerusalem Post, the Miami Herald, (7) and the Times of London (8) all carried this amazing story and all revealed how furious FBI officials were that these terror suspects with nuclear power plant plans were allowed to go free.

 
Of course, the corruption riddled FBI would only have caved into Zionist pressure from the Justice Department's Criminal Division boss, Michael Chertoff, and also from the ADL's "partner", FBI boss Robert Mueller - who would no doubt have found a way to eventually release those Israeli terror suspects too.

In December, 2001, the Los Angeles Times published the story of how two jewish terrorists were arrested by the FBI for plotting to blow up the office of US Congressman of Arab descent - Darrell Issa (R- CA), and a California mosque. (9) Irv Rubin and Earl Kruger of the Jewish Defense League (JDL) were charged with conspiracy to destroy a building by means of explosives. This story got brief national coverage but quickly disappeared too.

 
These Zionists sure love blowing up buildings and killing innocent people don't they?

In May of 2002, yet another moving van was pulled over in Oak Harbor, Washington near the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. Fox News reported that the van was pulled over for speeding shortly after midnight. The passengers told the police they were delivering furniture, but because it was so late at night, the police weren't buying the story.


A bomb sniffing dog was brought in and the dog detected the presence of TNT and RDX plastic explosives in the truck (great stuff for demolishing buildings!) Both Fox News (10) and the Ha'aretz newspaper of Israel (11) reported that the two "movers" were Israelis.

In December, 2002, Ariel Sharon made the amazing claim that Al-Qaeda agents were operating inside of Israel. But when Palestinian authorities apprehended the suspects, they turned out to be Palestinian traitors impersonating Al-qaeda agents for the MOSSAD!

 
From the Sydney Morning Herald of Australia:

    "Palestinian security forces have arrested a group of Palestinians for collaborating with Israel and posing as operatives of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network, a senior official said yesterday. ..The arrests come two days after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon charged al-Qaeda militants were operating in Gaza and in Lebanon.

    It was considered a surprise because the Gaza Strip is virtually sealed off by Israeli troops. The hard-line Israeli leader also charged other members of the terror group were cooperating with Lebanon's Shi'ite militia Hizbollah" (12)

You know, if Sharon wasn't so dangerous, I'd almost be amused by his bullshit!

According to FOX news, throughout late 2000 and 2001, a total of 200 Israeli spies were arrested. (13) It was the largest spy ring to ever be uncovered in the history of the United States. The Washington Post also reported that some of these Israelis were arrested in connection with the 9-11 investigation. (14)

 
US. Carl Cameron of FOX News Channel did a excellent four part, nationally televised, series of investigations into this blockbuster scandal. But FOX pulled the investigative series after Zionist groups complained to FOX executives. FOX even went so far as to remove the written transcripts of the series from its website! In it's place was posted a chilling, Orwellian message which reads:

    "This story no longer exists." (15)

Fortunately for the sake of history, the FOX transcripts were copied onto to many other websites and all four parts are available for your review. (see footnotes.)

The FOX series and other mainstream news media sources revealed that many of these Israelis were army veterans with electronics and explosives expertise. Many of them failed lie detector tests. FBI agents told FOX that some of their past investigations were compromised because suspects had been tipped off by Israeli wiretapping specialists. It was discovered that Israeli companies such as Comverse and Amdocs have the capability to tap American telephones (great for blackmailing all those wife-cheating politicians!)

 
FBI agents also told FOX they believed the Israelis had advance knowledge of the 9-11 attacks. (which certainly would explain why no Israelis died in the WTC) Still another US official informed FOX that some of the detained Israelis actually had links to 9-11, but he refused to describe the nature of those links.

 
The FBI official told FOX's Carl Cameron:

    "Evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about the evidence that has been gathered. It is classified information." (16)

Then there was that small army of Israeli "art students" who were arrested for trying to sneak into secured US Federal buildings and staking out 36 Department of Defense sites. Some of these suspicious "art students" even showed up at the homes of Federal employees. (17)

 
Ron Hatchett, a Department of Defense analyst, told Channel 11, KHOU news in Houston that he believed that the "art students" were gathering intelligence for future attacks.

 
Here's an excerpt from the October 1, 2001 KHOU investigative report by Anna Werner:

    "Could federal buildings in Houston and other cities be under surveillance by foreign groups? That's what some experts are asking after federal law enforcement and security officials - nationally and in Houston - described for the 11 News Defenders a curious pattern of behavior by a group of people claiming to be Israeli art students."

    "Hatchett says they could be doing what he would be doing if he were a terrorist, sizing up the situation: "We need to know what are the entrances to this particular building. We need to know what are the surveillance cameras that are operating. We need to know how many guards are at this operation, when do they take breaks?" Says Hatchett: This is not a bunch of kids selling artwork."

    "A former Defense Department analyst, Hatchett believes groups may be gathering intelligence for possible future attacks. "Some organization, thinking in terms of a potential retaliation against the U.S. government could be scouting out potential targets and . looking for targets that would be vulnerable."

And a source tells the Defenders of another federal memo, stating that besides Houston and Dallas, the same thing has happened at sites in New York, Florida, and six other states, and even more worrisome, at 36 sensitive Department of Defense sites.

    "One defense site you can explain," says Hatchett, "well that was just a serendipitous,...Thirty-six? That's a pattern." (18)

A Federal memo stated that these "art students" may have had ties to an "Islamic terror group".

 
More likely, they were the "Islamic terror group"! Remember the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, and how the "Arab terrorists" were actually Irgun terrorists? Remember the Zionist terrorists caught in Mexico with Arab passports? Remember the official motto of the Mossad - By Way of Deception Thou Shalt Do War. Are you getting the picture? Can you say "false flag operations"?

In a follow up report a few days later, KHOU Channel 11 revealed that Dallas was also targetted:

    "11 News reported how people claiming to be "Israeli art students" might be trying to sneak into federal buildings and defense sites, and even doing surveillance. And at least one expert said he thought it could all be preparation for an attack. Well, now federal sources say they are not ruling out that all of this could be connected with the hijackings on September 11, because of events in another Texas city.

    In Dallas, the so-called students hit early this year at the city's FBI building, the Drug Enforcement Administration and at the Earle Cabell Federal building, where guards found one student wandering the halls with a floor plan of the building.

    So the Dallas INS went on the alert, finding and arresting 15 people in March. Thirteen claimed to be Israelis and two are professed Colombians. But according to sources, once again their passports were phony. And another federal source says some of those arrested also appeared to have lists of federal employees and their home addresses.

    All 15 "students" have now been deported. Now, since our first story ran Sunday night, some viewers called who said that they've been visited by people who claim to be Israeli students selling art." (19)

Absolutely mind boggling!

    *

      Why were Israeli explosives experts, posing as "art students" roaming the halls of US Federal buildings?
    *

      Why were Israeli army vets, armed with explosives and detonators, roaming the halls of the Mexican Congress?
    *

      Why were Israeli "movers" caught invans with explosives residue ?
    *

      Might some of these shady characters have once also "roamed the halls" of the World Trade Center prior to 9-11?
    *

      Why aren't "60 minutes", "Nightline", "20/20", and the rest of the Zionist media aggressively pursuing the story behind the Israeli "art students" and "movers" with 1/1,000th the zeal that they pursued Martha Stewart over allegations of insider trading (who cares?), or 1/10,000th the zeal that they pursued the Catholic Church over an occasional pedophile priest?

Funny how we never hear about the documented cases of pedophile rabbis!, or 1/100,000th the zeal that they pursue the Muslim bogeyman on a daily basis? Something smells rotten here!

One would think that these intriguing mysteries would have great TV audience appeal, especially in light of the fact that the Oklahoma Federal building was blown up in 1995 by the since executed Timothy McVeigh (dead men tell no tales), and a "John Doe # 2" of "Middle- Eastern appearance", who was never tracked down or pursued despite numerous eye-witness accounts and despite an FBI All Points Bulletin which clearly described him as such.

Of America's major networks, only FOX News made a meager attempt to investigate these mysteries, but FOX was quickly silenced by Zionist pressure. This alone is evidence of criminal activity!

 
Before his excellent work was silenced, FOX's Carl Cameron reported this amazing bit of information:

    "Investigators within the DEA, INS, and FBI have all told FOX News that to pursue or even suggest Israeli spying is considered career suicide."(20)

Did you catch that? If a Federal investigator dares to "even suggest" Israeli spying, he has committed "career suicide"!

 
And if a journalist like FOX's Cameron dares to bring this scandal to light, he is told to shut his mouth. If they persist, they may even be called "anti-Semitic" - a label which has served as the kiss of death for many a career. This means that Zionist Mafia can do whatever it wants, whenever it wants, and however it wants - including orchestrating, financing, executing, and covering up the true story of events in the Middle East, the 9-11 massacre, and the ensuing "War on Terrorism" (war on Israel's enemies).

Now do you remember the Mossad's "warning" about the 200 "Al-Qaeda terrorists" said to have been preparing major attacks in the US? (21) At the time of this writing, we are one year into the largest investigation in American history, and not one of these 200 "terrorists" has yet to be uncovered. (22)

 
But 200 Israeli spies were uncovered, among them many military members, electronics experts, wiretapping and phone tapping specialists, and explosives experts with the skill to bring down tall buildings. (23) Logic and common sense leads to the conclusion that the "200 Al Qaeda terrorists" were in reality, 200 Zionist terrorists sent to frame the Arabs for terrorist attacks and drag America into a war.

On December 11, 2002, Senator Bob Graham (D-FL), a leading member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, appeared as a guest on the PBS Newshour with Gwen Ifill. Graham surprised Ifill by expressing his belief that a foreign government or governments had to have funded and supported the hijackers.

 
Here's part of the exchange:

    IFILL: "Are you suggesting that you are convinced that there was a state sponsor behind 9/11?"

    GRAHAM: "I think there is very compelling evidence that at least some of the terrorists were assisted not just in financing - although that was part of it - by a sovereign foreign government and that we have been derelict in our duty to track that down, make the further case, or find the evidence that would indicate that that is not true and we can look for other reasons why the terrorists were able to function so effectively in the United States."

    IFILL: "Do you think that will ever become public, which countries you're talking about?"

Now listen to Graham's bombshell.........:

    GRAHAM: "It will become public at some point when it's turned over to the archives, but that's 20 or 30 years from now. And, we need to have this information now because it's relevant to the threat that the people of the United States are facing today." (24)

Senator Graham is suggesting that US intelligence knows which foreign government helped the terrorists, but the government isn't going to tell us for another 30 years!

 
Given the current state of anti-Muslim war hysteria being promoted by the media and government, common sense dictates that if an Arab government was ever discovered to have sponsored 9-11, we'd be seeing the evidence night and day on the controlled media, and hearing about it non-stop from all the President's warmongers as well as the Israeli-occupied US Congress and Senate. This alone is evidence that no Arab government was involved in 9-11.

It can't be an Arab government.

    *

      Why would any Arab government sponsor "Al-qaeda", an organization dedicated to overthrowing what it sees as corrupt, US-backed Arab governments?
    *

      What Arab government would have incentive to attack America- its best oil purchasing customer?
    *

      What Arab government would have the ability to shield itself from US media exposure?
    *

      What Arab government would be so suicidal, so hell-bent on its own destruction, as to attack a mighty nuclear superpower like the United States?
    *

      So who, if not an Arab government could be the chief sponsor of 9-11?

Again, let's go back to FOX News quoting an FBI official. Pay close attention to the specific language used:

    "Evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about the evidence that has been gathered. It is classified information." (25)

In order for evidence "linking these Israelis to 9-11" to become classified, the evidence has to have existed in the first place! Furthermore, but it must have been very, very serious stuff indeed. Only the really ugly stuff merits the distinction of being "classified!"

It may be possible that the good Senator doesn't know himself which country or countries are involved. Graham may still be under the delusion that it's an Arab government. Or, perhaps he's a disgusted patriot just trying to throw a subtle shot at Israel in his own little way, without actually having to commit "career suicide" as so many other anti-Zionist politicians have in the past.

 
History will reveal the truth one day, just as it did for Pearl Harbor. The trouble is, by that time, no one will care about 9-11 and this phony war "War on Terrorism" anymore. The American attention span does not reach "20-30 years".

 
It's closer to 20-30 minutes, about the length of an average Dan Rather, Peter Jennings, or Tom Brokaw infomercial. If even that!

History always repeats itself.

 
But who will teach this history to the American people when the Zionists control the information industry? The Zionist Mafia and their ass-kissing careerist henchmen in media, government, academia, and business have all of the bases covered.
Resist. Rebel. Cry out to all peoples and nations from the sky as the lightening flashes from the east to the west and judge the living and the dead. Or choose submission and slavery.

The light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  (John 1:5)

  The Five Dancing Israelis Arrested On 9-11


On the day of the 9-11 attacks, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the attacks would mean for US- Israeli relations. His quick reply was: "It's very good. Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)"


A Mossad surveillance team made quite a public spectacle of themselves on 9-11.

The New York Times reported Thursday that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating one another afterwards. (1)


Police received several calls from angry New Jersey residents claiming "middle-eastern" men with a white van were videotaping the disaster with shouts of joy and mockery. (2)

    "They were like happy, you know They didn't look shocked to me" said a witness. (3)

[T]hey were seen by New Jersey residents on Sept. 11 making fun of the World Trade Center ruins and going to extreme lengths to photograph themselves in front of the wreckage. (4) Witnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park after the initial impact (5).

 
Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot. (6)

    "It looked like they're hooked in with this. It looked like they knew what was going to happen when they were at Liberty State Park." (7)

One anonymous phone call to the authorities actually led them to close down all of New York's bridges and tunnels. The mystery caller told the 9-1-1 dispatcher that a group of Palestinians were mixing a bomb inside of a white van headed for the Holland Tunnel.

 
Here's the transcript from NBC News:

    Dispatcher: Jersey City police.

    Caller: Yes, we have a white van, 2 or 3 guys in there, they look like Palestinians and going around a building.

    Caller: There's a minivan heading toward the Holland tunnel, I see the guy by Newark Airport mixing some junk and he has those sheikh uniform.

    Dispatcher: He has what?

    Caller: He's dressed like an Arab. (8)

* Writer's note: Why would this mystery caller specifically say that these "Arabs" were Palestinians? How would he know that? Palestinians usually dress in western style clothes, not "sheikh uniforms"

Based on that phone call, police then issued a "Be-on-the-Lookout" alert for a white mini-van heading for the city's bridges and tunnels from New Jersey.

White, 2000 Chevrolet van with 'Urban Moving Systems' sign on back seen at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ, at the time of first impact of jetliner into World Trade Center Three individuals with van were seen celebrating after initial impact and subsequent explosion. FBI Newark Field Office requests that, if the van is located, hold for prints and detain individuals. (9)

 
When a van fitting that exact description was stopped just before crossing into New York, the suspicious "middle-easterners" were apprehended. Imagine the surprise of the police officers when these terror suspects turned out to be Israelis!

 
According to ABCs 20/20, when the van belonging to the cheering Israelis was stopped by the police, the driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers:

    "We are Israelis. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are your problem." (10)

Why did he feel Palestinians were a problem for the NYPD?

The police and FBI field agents became very suspicious when they found maps of the city with certain places highlighted, box cutters (the same items that the hijackers supposedly used), $4700 cash stuffed in a sock, and foreign passports. Police also told the Bergen Record that bomb sniffing dogs were brought to the van and that they reacted as if they had smelled explosives. (11)

The FBI seized and developed their photos, one of which shows Sivan Kurzberg flicking a cigarette lighter in front of the smoldering ruins in an apparently celebratory gesture. (12)


 The Jerusalem Post later reported that a white van with a bomb was stopped as it approached the George Washington Bridge, but the ethnicity of the suspects was not revealed. Here's what the Jerusalem Post reported on September 12, 2001:

    American security services overnight stopped a car bomb on the George Washington Bridge. The van, packed with explosives, was stopped on an approach ramp to the bridge. Authorities suspect the terrorists intended to blow up the main crossing between New Jersey and New York, Army Radio reported. (13)

    "...two suspects are in FBI custody after a truckload of explosives was discovered around the George Washington Bridge... The FBI... says enough explosives were in the truck to do great damage to the George Washington Bridge." WMV video download (545kB)

    It was reported the van contained tonnes of explosives.(14)

What's really intriguing is that ABC's 20/20 (15), the New York Post (16), and the New Jersey Bergen Record (17) all clearly and unambiguously reported that a white van with Israelis was intercepted on a ramp near Route 3, which leads directly to the Lincoln Tunnel.

But the Jerusalem Post, Israeli National News (Arutz Sheva) (18), and Yediot America, (19) all reported, just as clearly and unambiguously, that a white van with Israelis was stopped on a ramp leading to the George Washington Bridge, which is several miles north of the Lincoln Tunnel.

It appears as if there may actually have been two white vans involved, one stopped on each crossing.

 
This would not only explain the conflicting reports as to the actual location of the arrests, but would also explain how so many credible eye-witnesses all saw celebrating "middle-easterners" in a white van in so many different locations. It also explains why the New York Post and Steve Gordon (lawyer for the 5 Israelis) originally described how three Israelis were arrested but later increased the total to five.

Perhaps one van was meant to drop off a bomb while the other was meant to pick up the first set of drivers while re-crossing back into New Jersey? If a van was to be used as a parked time-bomb on the GW Bridge, then certainly the drivers would need to have a "get- away van" to pick them up and escape.

 
And notice how the van (or vans) stayed away from the third major crossing -the Holland Tunnel- which was where the police had originally been directed to by that anti-Palestinian 9-1-1 "mystery caller". A classic misdirection play.

From there, the story gets becomes even more suspicious. The Israelis worked for a Weehawken moving company known as Urban Moving Systems. An American employee of Urban Moving Systems told the The Record of New Jersey that a majority of his co-workers were Israelis and they were joking about the attacks.

The employee, who declined to give his name said:

    "I was in tears. These guys were joking and that bothered me."

These guys were like,

    "Now America knows what we go through." (20)

A few days after the attacks, Urban Moving System's Israeli owner, Dominick Suter, dropped his business and fled the country for Israel. He was in such a hurry to flee America that some of Urban Moving System's customers were left with their furniture stranded in storage facilities (21).

Suter's departure was abrupt, leaving behind coffee cups, sandwiches, cell phones and computers strewn on office tables and thousands of dollars of goods in storage. Suter was later placed on the same FBI suspect list as 9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta and other hijackers and suspected al-Qaeda sympathizers, suggesting that U.S. authorities felt Suter may have known something about the attacks. (22)

 
The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that the FBI finally concluded that at least two of the detained Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis, was a front operation. This was confirmed by two former CIA officers, and they noted that movers' vans are a common intelligence cover. (23)

 
The Israelis were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released. (24)

    "There was no question but that [the order to close down the investigation] came from the White House. It was immediately assumed at CIA headquarters that this basically was going to be a cover-up so that the Israelis would not be implicated in any way in 9/11." (25)

Several of the detainees discussed their experience in America on an Israeli talk show after their return home. Said one of the men, denying that they were laughing or happy on the morning of Sept. 11,

    "The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event." (26)

 
How did they know there would be an event to document on 9/11?

It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to connect the dots of the dancing Israeli Mossad agents - here's the most logical scenario:

   1.

      The Israeli "movers" cheered the 9-11 attacks to celebrate the successful accomplishment of the greatest spy operation ever pulled off in history.
   2.

      One of them, or an accomplice, then calls a 9-1-1 police dispatcher to report Palestinian bomb-makers in a white van headed for the Holland Tunnel.
   3.

      Having thus pre-framed the Palestinians with this phone call, the Israeli bombers then head for the George Washington Bridge instead, where they will drop off their time-bomb van and escape with Urban Moving accomplices.
   4.

      But the police react very wisely and proactively by closing off ALL bridges and tunnels instead of just the Holland Tunnel. This move inadvertently foils the Israelis' misdirection play and leads to their own capture and 40 day torture.
   5.

      To cover up this story, the U.S. Justice Department rounds up over 1000 Arabs for minor immigration violations and places them in New York area jails. The Israelis therefore become less conspicuous as the government and media can now claim that the Israelis were just immigration violators caught in the same dragnet as many other Arabs.
   6.

      After several months, FBI and Justice Department "higher-ups" are able to gradually push aside the local FBI agents and free the Israelis quietly.

Osama bin Laden was immediately blamed for the 9/11 attacks even though he had no previous record of doing anything on this scale.

 
Immediately after the Flight 11 hit World Trade Center 1 CIA Director George Tenet said,

    "You know, this has bin Laden's fingerprints all over it." (27)

The compliant mainstream media completely ignored the Israeli connection. Immediately following the 9-11 attacks the media was filled with stories linking the attacks to bin Laden. TV talking- heads, "experts", and scribblers of every stripe spoon-fed a gullible American public a steady diet of the most outrageous propaganda imaginable.

We were told that the reason bin Laden attacked the USA was because he hates our "freedom" and "democracy". The Muslims were "medieval" and they wanted to destroy us because they envied our wealth, were still bitter about the Crusades, and were offended by Britney Spears shaking her tits and ass all over the place!

But bin Laden strongly denied any role in the attacks and suggested that Zionists orchestrated the 9-11 attacks.


The BBC published bin Laden's statement of denial in which he said:

    "I was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States nor did I have knowledge of the attacks. There exists a government within a government within the United States. The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; to the people who want to make the present century a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity.

     
    That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks.... The American system is totally in control of the Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States." (28)

You never heard that quote on your nightly newscast did you?

[A] number of intelligence officials have raised questions about Osama bin Laden's capabilities.

    "This guy sits in a cave in Afghanistan and he's running this operation?" one C.I.A. official asked. "It's so huge. He couldn't have done it alone."

A senior military officer told me that because of the visas and other documentation needed to infiltrate team members into the United States a major foreign intelligence service might also have been involved. (29) Bin Laden is not named as the perpetrator of 9/11 by the FBI:

When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Ladens Most Wanted web page (30), [Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI] said,

    The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Ladens Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11. (31)

     
    "So we've never made the case, or argued the case that somehow Osama bin Laden [sic] was directly involved in 9/11. That evidence has never been forthcoming" - Dick Cheney. (32)

To date, the only shred of evidence to be uncovered against bin Laden is a barely audible fuzzy amateur video that the Pentagon just happened to find "lying around" in Afghanistan. How very convenient, and how very fake. (33)

There is no evidence, be it hard or circumstantial, to link the Al Qaeda "terrorist network" to these acts of terror, but there is a mountain of evidence, both hard and circumstantial, which suggests that Zionists have been very busy framing Arabs for terror plots against America.

    "I think there is very compelling evidence that at least some of the terrorists were assisted not just in financing - although that was part of it - by a sovereign foreign government... It will become public at some point when it's turned over to the archives, but that's 20 or 30 years from now" - Senator Bob Graham. (34)

If the sovereign foreign government mentioned by Senator Graham was an enemy of the United States the "compelling evidence" would not be kept secret for 20+ years.

One final point; at 09:40 on 9-11 it was reported that the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine claimed responsibility for the attacks (35).

 
This claim was immediately denied by the DFLP leader Qais abu Leila who said it had always opposed,

    "terror attacks on civilian targets, especially outside the occupied territories." (36)

Why would a Palestinian organization comprising of less than 500 people (37) make the suicidal move of immediately claiming responsibility for the attacks?

 
Sharon and the other Israeli leaders aspire to fulfill what the goals of the political Zionist movement have been since its origin a century ago: to turn all of historic Palestine into an exclusively Jewish state.

 
A central tenet of the Zionist ideology is expressed in the racist slogan,

    "A land without people for a people without a land." (38)

The implication of Palestinians in the 9/11 attacks would have handed Zionists a golden opportunity to achieve the above because all Palestinians would have been labeled terrorists.

    "Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."

US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring.

    "By way of deception, thou shalt do war" Motto of the Mossad

This story is so complicated and long, I've tried to break it into threads of different colors to make it easier to digest, as well as the main page, the page for the day of September 11, and the abridged timeline.
Resist. Rebel. Cry out to all peoples and nations from the sky as the lightening flashes from the east to the west and judge the living and the dead. Or choose submission and slavery.

September 1, 1992

Terrorists Ahmad Ajaj and Ramzi Yousef enter the US together. Ajaj is arrested at Kennedy Airport in New York City. Ramzi Yousef is not arrested, and later masterminds the 1993 bombing of the WTC (see February 26, 1993).

    "The US government was pretty sure Ahmad Ajaj was a terrorist from the moment he stepped foot on US soil," because his "suitcases were stuffed with fake passports, fake IDs and a cheat sheet on how to lie to US immigration inspectors," plus "two handwritten notebooks filled with bomb recipes, six bomb-making manuals, four how-to videotapes concerning weaponry and an advanced guide to surveillance training."

However, Ajaj is only charged with passport fraud, and serves a six-month sentence. From prison, Ajaj frequently calls Ramzi Yousef and others in the WTC bombing plot, but no one monitors or translates the calls until long after the bombing.

[Los Angeles Times, 10/14/01]

 
An Israeli newsweekly later reports that the Palestinian Ajaj may have been a mole for the Israeli Mossad. The Village Voice has suggested that Ajaj may have had "advance knowledge of the World Trade Center bombing, which he shared with Mossad, and that Mossad, for whatever reason, kept the secret to itself." Ajaj was not just knowledgeable, but was involved in the planning of the bombing from his prison cell.

[Village Voice, 8/3/93]

 
Ajaj is released from prison three days after the WTC bombing, but is later rearrested and sentenced to more than 100 years in prison.

[Los Angeles Times, 10/14/01]

 
One of the manuals seized from Ajaj is horribly mistranslated for the trial. For instance, the title page is said to say "The Basic Rule," published in 1982, when in fact the title says "Al-Qaeda" (which means "the base" in English), published in 1989. Investigators later complain that a proper translation could have shown an early connection between al-Qaeda and the WTC bombing.

[New York Times, 1/14/01]
 

February 26, 1993

An attempt to blow up the WTC fails. Six people are killed in the misfired blast. Analysts later determine that had the terrorists not made a minor error in the placement of the bomb, both towers could have fallen and up to 50,000 people could have been killed. The attempt is organized by Ramzi Yousef, who has close ties to bin Laden.

[Congressional Hearings, 2/24/98]

 
The New York Times later reports on Emad Salem, an undercover agent who ends up being the key government witness in the trial against the bomber. Salem testifies that the FBI knew about the attack beforehand and told him they would thwart it by substituting a harmless powder for the explosives. However, this plan was called off by an FBI supervisor, and the bombing was not stopped.

[New York Times, 10/28/93]

 
Why did the FBI seemingly let the terrorists go ahead with the bombing? Others suspects are ineptly investigated before the bombing (see July 1990 and November 5, 1990). Several of the bombers were trained by the CIA to fight in the Afghan war, and the CIA later concludes in internal documents that it was "partly culpable" for this bombing attempt.

[Independent, 11/1/98]

 
Ahmad Ajaj, an associate of Yousef, may have been a mole for the Israeli Mossad, and the Mossad may have had advanced knowledge of the bombing (see September 1, 1992). US officials later state that the overall mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, is a close relative of Ramzi Yousef, [Independent, 6/6/02] probably his uncle.

[Los Angeles Times, 9/1/02]

 
One of the attackers even left a message found by investigators stating, "Next time, it will be very precise." 9/11 can be seen as a completion of this failed attack.

[AP, 9/30/01]
 

January 2000 (B)

A DEA government document later leaked to the press [DEA report, 6/01] suggests that a large Israeli spy ring starts penetrating the US from at least this time, if not earlier. This ring, which will later become popularly known as the "art student spy ring," is later shown to have strange connections to the events of 9/11.

[Insight, 3/11/02]
 

February 6, 2000

India's largest newsweekly reports that it appears a recent Mossad attempt to infiltrate al-Qaeda failed when they were stopped by Indian customs officials on their way to Bangladesh. These 11 men appeared to be from Afghanistan, but had Israeli passports.

 
One expert states,

    "It is not unlikely for Mossad to recruit 11 Afghans in Iran and grant them Israeli citizenship to penetrate a network such as Bin Laden's. They would begin by infiltrating them into an Islamic radical group in an unlikely place like Bangladesh."

[The Week, 2/6/00]

 
If this shows that Mossad was trying to infiltrate al-Qaeda, did they make other attempts that succeeded, and if so, is this how they learned enough to know where to trail al-Qaeda in the US via the "art student spy ring"?
 

April 19, 2000

USA Today states that "Israeli crime groups... dominate distribution" of Ecstasy.

[USA Today, 4/19/00]

 
The DEA also states that most of the Ecstasy sold in the US is "controlled by organized crime figures in Western Europe, Russia and Israel."

[UPI, 10/25/01]

 
According to DEA documents, the Israeli "art student" spy ring" has been linked to several ongoing DEA [Ecstasy] investigations in Florida, California, Texas and New York now being closely coordinated by DEA headquarters."

[Insight, 3/11/02]

 
In addition to 9/11 connections explored later, was this spy ring meant to obstruct DEA prosecution of Israeli organized crime?
 

December 2000-April 2001

According to later German reports,

    "a whole horde of Israeli counter-terror investigators, posing as students, [follow] the trails of Arab terrorists and their cells in the United States... In the town of Hollywood, Florida, they [identify]... Atta and Marwan Alshehhi as possible terrorists. Agents [live] in the vicinity of the apartment of the two seemingly normal flight school students, observing them around the clock."

Supposedly, around April, the Israeli agents are discovered and deported, terminating the investigation.

[Der Spiegel, 10/1/02]

 
However, 80 additional agents are apprehended between June and December 2001 [Fox News, 12/12/01] and even more have been uncovered since (see May 7, 2002). Did the surveillance of Atta and others in fact end in April? Other reports have implied the story and connection (see March 5, 2002). Supposedly, the Mossad waits until late August 2001 before informing the CIA what it learns, and the CIA doesn't take the warning seriously (see August 23, 2001).
 

January 21, 2001

George Bush Jr. is inaugurated as the 43rd US President, replacing Clinton. The only major figure to permanently remain in office is CIA Director Tenet, appointed in 1997 and reputedly a long time friend of Bush Sr. FBI Director Louis Freeh stays on until June 2001.
 

March 23, 2001

The Office of National Drug Control Policy issues a National Security Alert describing "apparent attempts by Israeli nationals to learn about government personnel and office layouts." This later comes to light through a leaked Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) document called "Suspicious Activities Involving Israeli Art Students at DEA Facilities." A crackdown ensues and by June around 120 Israelis are apprehended. More are apprehended later.

[Read the document here: DEA report, 6/01]
 

June 2001 (G)

A 60-page internal memo on the Israeli "art student" spy ring is prepared by the DEA's Office of Security Programs.

[Read the memo here: DEA report, 6/01]

 
The memo is a compilation of dozens of field reports, and was meant only for the eyes of senior officials at the Justice Department (of which the DEA is adjunct), but it is leaked to the press around December 2001. The report connects the spies to efforts to foil investigations into Israeli organized crime activity involving the importation of the drug Ecstasy.

 
The spies also appear to be snooping on top secret military bases. For instance, on April 30, 2001, an Air Force alert was issued from Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City concerning "possible intelligence collection being conducted by Israeli Art Students." Tinker AFB houses AWACS surveillance craft and Stealth bombers. By the time of the report, the US has "apprehended or expelled close to 120 Israeli nationals" but many remain at large.

[Le Monde, 3/5/02, Salon, 5/7/02]

 
An additional 20 or so Israeli spies are apprehended between June and 9/11.

[Fox News, 12/12/01]
 

August 8-15, 2001

At some point between these dates, Israel warns the US that an al-Qaeda attack is imminent.

[Fox News, 5/17/02]

 
Two high ranking agents from the Mossad come to Washington and warn the FBI and CIA that from 50 to 200 terrorists have slipped into the US and are planning "a major assault on the United States." They say indications point to a "large scale target", and that Americans would be "very vulnerable." They add there could be Iraqi connections to the al-Qaeda attack.

[Telegraph, 9/16/01, Los Angeles Times, 9/20/01, Ottawa Citizen, 9/17/01]

 
The Los Angeles Times later retracts the story after a CIA spokesman says, "There was no such warning. Allegations that there was are complete and utter nonsense."

[Los Angeles Times, 9/21/01]

 
In light of later revelations of a Mossad spy ring trailing numerous Muslim terrorists in the US, it is easy to see that Mossad would have known this info. Could this be later disinformation by the Mossad to spin the spy ring story and blame Iraq for 9/11, or it is another smoking gun showing extensive US foreknowledge?
 

August 23, 2001

According to German newspapers, the Mossad gives the CIA a list of terrorists living in the US and say that they appear to be planning to carry out an attack in the near future. It is unknown if these are the 19 9/11 hijackers or if the number is a coincidence. However, four names on the list are known and are names of the 9/11 hijackers: Nawaf Alhazmi, Khalid Almihdhar, Marwan Alshehhi, and Mohamed Atta.

[Die Zeit, 10/1/02, Der Spiegel, 10/1/02, BBC, 10/2/02, Haaretz, 10/3/02]

 
The Mossad appears to have learned about this through its "art student" spy ring (see for instance, March 5, 2002). Yet apparently this warning and list are not treated as particularly urgent by the CIA and also not passed on to the FBI. It's not clear if this warning influenced the adding of Alhazmi and Almihdhar to a terrorism watch list on this same day, and if so, why only those two.

[Der Spiegel, 10/1/02]

 
Israel has denied that there were any Mossad agents in the US. [Haaretz, 10/3/02] The US has denied knowing about Atta before 9/11, despite other media reports to the contrary (see January-May 2000).

Zim-American Israeli Shipping Co. moves their North American headquarters from the 16th floor of the WTC to Norfolk, Virginia, one week before the 9/11 attacks. The Israeli government owns 49 percent of the company. [Virginian-Pilot, 9/4/01] Zim announced the move and its date six months earlier.

[Virginian- Pilot, 4/3/01]

 
More than 200 workers had just been moved out; about 10 are still in the building making final moving arrangements on 9/11, but escape alive. [Jerusalem Post, 9/13/01, Journal of Commerce, 10/18/01] The move leaves only one Israeli company, ClearForest, with 18 employees, in the WTC on 9/11. The four or five employees in the building at the time manage to escape.

[Jerusalem Post, 9/13/01]

 
One year later, a Zim ship is impounded attempting to ship Israeli military equipment to Iran; it is speculated that this is done with the knowledge of Israel.

[AFP, 8/29/02 (B)]

 
Given the Israeli government ties, the Odigo warning (see September 11, 2001 (C)), and the Israeli art student spy ring (see December 2000-April 2001), some have speculated that the move was more than just lucky.
 

September 10, 2001 (B)

An Army School of Advanced Military Studies issues a report written by elite US army officers, which is made public just prior to 9/11. The report gives the following description for the Mossad: "Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/ Arab act."

[Washington Times, 9/10/01]

 
After 9/11 and revelations of a large Mossad spy ring operating mysteriously in the US, some suggest that the Mossad did in fact do just that on 9/11.
 

September 11, 2001 (C)

Two employees of Odigo, Inc., in Israel, receive warnings of an imminent attack in New York City around two hours before the first plane hits the WTC. Odigo, one of the world's largest instant messaging companies, has its headquarters two blocks from the WTC. The Odigo Research and Development offices where the warnings were received are located in Herzliyya, a suburb of Tel Aviv.

 
Israeli security and the FBI were notified immediately after the 9/11 attacks began. The two employees claim not to know who sent the warnings. "Odigo service includes a feature called People Finder that allows users to seek out and contact others based on certain interests or demographics.

 
[Alex] Diamandis [Odigo vice president of sales and marketing] said it was possible that the attack warning was broadcast to other Odigo members, but the company has not received reports of other recipients of the message."

[Ha'aretz, 9/26/01, Washington Post, 9/27/01 (C)]

 
FTW Odigo claims the warning did not specifically mention the WTC, but the company won't say what was specified, claiming, "Providing more details would only lead to more conjecture."

[Washington Post, 9/28/01]

 
Odigo gave the FBI the internet address of the message's sender so the name of the sender could be found.

[Deutsche Presse-Agentur, 9/26/01]

 
Two months later it is reported that the FBI is still investigating the matter, but there have been no reports since.

[Courier Mail, 11/20/01]

 
Could the message have been a mass e-mail sent to a large group? Could this be related to the "art student spy ring"? Did the original senders directly inform the FBI as well, and if not, why not?
 

September 11, 2001 (G)

The 9/11 attack: four planes are hijacked, two crash into the WTC, one into the Pentagon, and one crashes into the Pennsylvania countryside. At least 3,000 people are killed. A more detailed timeline focusing on the hours of this attack appears on a separate page.
 

September 11, 2001 (W)

Five Israelis are arrested for "puzzling behavior" related to the WTC attacks. They are arrested around 4:30 P.M. after having filmed the burning WTC from the roof of their company's building near Liberty State Park, then shouting in what was interpreted as cries of joy and mockery. They were spotted by a neighbor who called the police and the FBI. The police tracked them down in a van with the words "Urban Moving Systems" written on the side.

[Bergen Record, 9/12/01, Ha'aretz, 9/17/01]

 
One man was found with $4,700 in cash hidden in his sock, another had two passports on him, and a box cutter was found in the van.

[ABC News, 6/21/02]

 
Investigators say that "There are maps of the city in the car with certain places highlighted... It looked like they're hooked in with this. It looked like they knew what was going to happen."

[Bergen Record, 9/12/01]

 
One of these Israelis later says, "Our purpose was to document the event."

[ABC News, 6/21/02]

 
The FBI later concludes at least two are Mossad agents and that all were on a Mossad surveillance mission. The FBI interrogates them for weeks.

[Forward, 3/15/02]

 
They are held on immigration violation charges and released 71 days later.

[ABC News, 6/21/02]


Their names are later identified as Sivan and Paul Kurzberg, Oded Ellner, Omer Marmari and Yaron Shmuel.

September 11 , 2001 (X)

An FAA memo written on the evening of 9/11 suggests a man on Flight 11 was shot and killed by a gun before the plane crashed into the WTC.

[See the leaked FAA memo, originally posted at World Net Daily]

 
The "Executive Summary," based on information relayed by a flight attendant to the American Airlines Operation Center, stated "that a passenger located in seat 10B shot and killed a passenger in seat 9B at 9:20 A.M.

[since Flight 11 crashed at 8:46, the time must be a typo, probably meaning 8:20].

 
The passenger killed was Daniel Lewin, shot by passenger Satam Al Suqami." The FAA claims that the document is a "first draft" and declines to release the final draft, calling it "protected information." A report in Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz on September 17 identifies Lewin as a former member of the Israel Defense Force Sayeret Matkal, Israel's most successful special-operations unit.

[UPI, 3/6/02].

 
Sayeret Matkal is a deep-penetration unit that has been involved in assassinations, the theft of foreign signals- intelligence materials, and the theft and destruction of foreign nuclear weaponry. Sayeret Matkal is best known for the 1976 rescue of 106 passengers at Entebbe Airport in Uganda.

[New Yorker, 10/29/01]

 
Officials later deny the gun story and suggest that Lewin was probably stabbed to death instead (which would still be very interesting).

[UPI, 3/6/02, Washington Post, 3/2/02]

 
Note that Lewin founded Akamai, a successful computer company, and his connections to Sayeret Mat'kal remained hidden until the gun story came to light.

[Guardian, 9/15/01]

 
Perhaps Lewin just happened to be there, and, with his past training, tried to be a hero and stop the hijack? What are the odds that an Israeli counter-terrorist expert would not only be on this hijacked flight, but also have terrorists sitting in the seats directly in front and behind him?
 

September 11, 2001 (BB)

Former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, when asked what the 9/11 attacks mean for relations between the US and Israel, replies, "It's very good." Then he edited himself: "Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy."

[New York Times, 9/12/01]

 
A week later, the Village Voice states, "From national networks to small-town newspapers, the view that America's terrible taste of terrorism will finally do away with even modest calls for the restraint of Israel's military attacks on Palestinian towns has become an instant, unshakable axiom.... Now, support for Israel in America is officially absolute, and Palestinians are cast once again as players in a global terrorist conspiracy."

[Village Voice, 9/19/01]
 

September 14, 2001 (approx.)

According to Seymour Hersh of the New Yorker, a few days after 9/11 members of the elite Israeli counter- terrorism unit Sayeret Matkal arrive in the US and begin training with US Special Forces in a secret location. The two groups are developing contingency plans to attack Pakistan's military bases and remove its nuclear weapons if the Pakistani government or the nuclear weapons fall into the wrong hands.

[New Yorker, 10/29/01]

 
There may have been threats to enact this plan on September 13, 2001 (see September 11-16, 2001). The Japan Times later notes that this "threat to divest Pakistan of its 'crown jewels' was cleverly used by the US, first to force Musharraf to support its military campaign in Afghanistan, and then to warn would-be coup plotters against Musharraf."

[Japan Times, 11/10/01]

 
Note the curious connection between Sayeret Matkal and one of the 9/11 passengers on Flight 11 (see September 11, 2001 (X)).
 

September 14, 2001 (K)

Dominick Suter, owner of the company Urban Moving Systems, flees the country to Israel. The FBI later tells ABC News that "Urban Moving may have been providing cover for an Israeli intelligence operation." Suter has been tied to the five Israeli agents caught filming the WTC attack. The FBI had questioned him around September 12, removing boxes of documents and a dozen computer hard drives. But when they returned a few days later, Suter is gone (see September 11, 2001 (W)).

Police in the Midwest stop six men carrying suspicious documents. They possess photos and descriptions of a nuclear power plant in Florida and the Trans-Alaska pipeline, and also have "box cutters and other equipment." All six have Israeli passports. They are let released the same day after their passports are shown to be valid, but before anyone interviews them. The FBI is reportedly furious about their release.

[Miami Herald, 10/3/01, Knight Ridder, 10/31/01, London Times, 11/2/01]

 
The six men may have been Mossad agents. In addition to snooping on the DEA and Muslim terrorists, some Mossad agents in the "art student" spy ring have been caught trying to break into military bases and other top secret facilities.

[Salon, 5/7/02]

 
Perhaps they were gathering information, not planning a hijack?
 

October 16, 2001 (C)

Two men, Moshe Elmakias and Ron Katar, are arrested after being found with a detailed video of the Sears Tower in Chicago. In addition, a woman named Ayelet Reisler is found with them, carrying conflicting identification information. They are arrested for illegal dumping, using a van with the name Moving Systems Incorporated. The video contains extensive zoom in shots of the Sears Tower; it is not known when the video was filmed.

[Philadelphia Mercury, 10/18/01]

 
Given the moving van cover (see September 11, 2001 (W) and [DEA report, 6/01]), and the Jewish names, it is likely these three are part of the Israeli spy ring. Could they have been videotaping the Sears Tower on 9/11 in the expectation that it would be hit by a plane? Had Flight 93 not been delayed 40 minutes on the runway and stayed on course, it would have been near Chicago at the same time as the other attacks, and it turned towards Washington 20 minutes after the FAA informed the military that the plane had been hijacked.
 

November 20, 2001

The five Israelis arrested on 9/11 for videotaping the WTC attack and then cheering about it (see September 11, 2001 (W)) are released and return to Israel. Some of the men's names appeared in a US national intelligence database, and the FBI concluded that at least two of the men were working for the Mossad, according to ABC News.

 
But the FBI says that none of them had any advanced knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, and they were released as part of a deal between the US and the Israel government. After their release they claim to have been tortured.

[Forward, 3/15/02, ABC News, 6/21/02]
 

November 23, 2001 (B)

The Washington Post reports, "At least 60 young Israeli Jews have been arrested and detained around the country on immigration charges since the Sept. 11 attacks, many of them held on US government officials' invocation of national security." An INS official who requested anonymity says the use of the term "special interest" for Israelis being held in Cleveland, St. Louis and other places means the case in question is "related to the investigation of September 11th." [Washington Post, 11/23/01] Could this be more "art school" spy ring activity?
 

December 12-15, 2001

Fox News broadcasts a remarkable series about the Israeli "art student" spy ring. The report mentions that at least 60 more Israelis have been detained or arrested since 9/11.

    "There is no indication that the Israelis were involved in the 9/11 attacks, but investigators suspect that the Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance, and not shared it."

When a government source is asked if the Israeli spies knew about the 9/11 attacks before they happened, he responds,

    "The principal question is 'how could they have not known?'"

    "Investigators within the DEA, INS and FBI have all told Fox News that to pursue or even suggest Israeli spying... is considered career suicide."

A highly placed investigator says there are 'tie- ins' between the spy ring and 9/11. But when asked for details, he flatly refuses to describe them, saying,

    "evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."

The report also reveals that Amdocs, an Israeli company, is recording virtually every phone call in the US and could be passing information on to the Israeli government (similar claims were first raised in 2000 [Insight, 5/29/00]). Fox News suggests they might be using this position to impede the 9/11 investigation.

    Fox News removes its series on the "art student" spy ring (see December 12-15, 2001) from its website after only two days, in response to pressure from the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) and others.

    (see for instance, [CAMERA, 12/12/01, CAMERA, 12/13/01]).

     
    CAMERA for instance, suggests the reporter "has something, personally, about Israel... Maybe he's very sympathetic to the Arab side."

    [Salon, 5/7/02]

     
    The head of the ADL calls the report "sinister dangerous innuendo which fuels anti-Semitism."

    [Forward, 12/21/01]

     
    Yet there doesn't appear to be any substance to these personal attacks (and Forward later reverses its stance on the spy ring.

    [Forward, 3/15/02]).

     
    Fox News also never makes a formal repudiation or correction about the series. The contents of the series continues to be mostly ignored by the mainstream media, but it makes a big impact inside the US government. For instance, an internal DEA communiqué from December 18 mentions the Fox report by name, and warns of security breaches in telecommunications as described in the Fox report.

    [Salon, 5/7/02]
     

    March 5, 2002

    It is reported that many spies in the uncovered Israeli spy ring seemed to have been trailing the 9/11 hijackers. For instance, five Israeli spies are intercepted in the tiny town of Hollywood, Florida, and four 9/11 hijackers are known to have spent time in Hollywood, Florida.

    [Le Monde, 3/5/02, Reuters, 3/5/02, Jane's Intelligence Digest, 3/15/02]

     
    In one case, some Israeli spies lived at 4220 Sheridan Street, only a few hundred feet from where Atta was living at 3389 Sheridan Street. Israeli spies appear to have been close to at least 10 of the 19 9/11 hijackers.

    [Salon, 5/7/02]
     

    March 6, 2002

    A Washington Post article completely denies the existence of any Israeli spy ring. A "wide array of US officials" supposedly deny it, and Justice Department spokeswoman Susan Dryden says: "This seems to be an urban myth that has been circulating for months. The department has no information at this time to substantiate these widespread reports about Israeli art students involved in espionage."

    [Washington Post, 3/6/02]

     
    The New York Times fails to cover the story at all, even months later.

    [Salon, 5/7/02]

     
    By mid-March, Jane's, the respected British intelligence and military analysis service, notes: "It is rather strange that the US media seems to be ignoring what may well be the most explosive story since the 11 September attacks - the alleged breakup of a major Israeli espionage operation in the USA."

    [Jane's Intelligence Digest, 3/13/02]
     

    March 11, 2002

    A newspaper reports that the DEA study on Israeli "art students" determined the "students" all had "recently served in the Israeli military, the majority in intelligence, electronic signal intercept or explosive ordnance units."

    [Palm Beach Post, 3/11/02]
     

    March 15, 2002

    Forward, a US publication with a large Jewish audience, admits that there has been an Israeli spy ring in the US. This is a reversal of their earlier stance.

    (see [Forward, 12/21/01])

     
    But, "far from pointing to Israeli spying against US government and military facilities, as reported in Europe last week, the incidents in question appear to represent a case of Israelis in the United States spying on a common enemy, radical Islamic networks suspected of links to Middle East terrorism."

    [Forward, 3/15/02]
     

    May 7, 2002

    In the middle of the night a moving truck is pulled over for speeding in Oak Harbor, Washington, near the Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. The base is the home of the advanced electronic warfare Prowler jets. A bomb-sniffing dog detects explosives on one of the men and inside the truck. High-tech equipment is then later used to confirm the presence of TNT on the gearshift and RDX plastic explosive on the steering wheel. Both men turn out to be Israeli (one with an altered passport), and in the country illegally.

    [Fox News, 5/13/02]

     
    However, later the FBI clears the two men, saying both the dog and the tests just detected false positives from "residue left by a cigarette lighter."

    [Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 5/14/02, Jerusalem Post, 5/14/02]

     
    The "art student spy ring" frequently uses moving vans as cover, and has been caught spying on the most top secret military bases.

    [Salon, 5/7/02]

     
    In a possibly related story, the Seattle FBI office that handled this case appears to have been broken into a few weeks later, and even a room containing evidence was penetrated.

    [Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 7/29/02]

     
    Does it not appear that the spy ring is still active, and the FBI is covering up for them and releasing them, no matter what they're caught doing? Why?
     

    May 7, 2002 (B)

    Salon reports on the Israeli "art student" ring. All the "students" claim to have come from either Bezalel Academy, or the University of Jerusalem. A look in the Bezalel database shows that not a single one of them appear to have attended school there. There is no such thing as the University of Jerusalem.

     
    In fact, the article points out that the sheer sloppiness and brazenness of the spy operation appears to be a great mystery, especially since the Mossad is renowned as one of the best spy agencies in the world. One government source suggests a theory to Salon that the "art students" were actually a smoke screen.

     
    They were meant to be caught and connected to DEA surveillance so that a smaller number of spies also posing as art students could complete other missions. One such mission could have been the monitoring of al-Qaeda terrorists.

    [Salon, 5/7/02]

     
    Shortly afterwards, a major Israeli newspaper publishes a story about the spy ring, but doesn't come to any conclusions.

    [Ha'aretz, 5/14/02]

     
    Could it be that Israel assisted the US in keeping an eye on the terrorists, thus allowing the US to maintain plausible deniability and a detachment if there were investigations on what the US knew?

    Saudi Interior Minister Prince Nayef blames Zionists and Jews for the 9/11 attacks.

     
    He tells journalists,

        "Who has benefited from Sept. 11 attacks? I think [the Jews] were the protagonists of such attacks."

    Nayef is in charge of the Saudi investigation into the attacks, and some US congress-people respond to the comments by questioning how strongly Saudi Arabia is investigating the involvement of the 15 Saudi 9/11 hijackers.

    Subject: JEWS DID 9-11 - NOW YOU CAN BE SURE - Air Traffic Controller Pete Zalewski was responsible for both New York Tower crashes - and also was controller for Egypt 990 crash in 1999

    Israel Defense Force Sayeret Matkal Branch - Sayeret Matkal is a deep-penetration unit that has been involved in assassinations, the theft of foreign (US) defense, financial, industrial and diplomatic secrets and the theft and destruction of foreign weapons and research facilities. They did 9-11.

    Air Traffic Controller Pete Zalewski was responsible for both New York Tower crashes - and also was controller for Egypt 990 crash in 1999, a plane loaded with the highest Egyptian military brass (see below)

    They were tough enough, bold enough, ruthless enough, and Jewish- supremacist-racist enough to do 9-11 and lie to our faces and mock us for suspecting them ever since. They are tough enough to destroy our economy and end our threat as a source of law and justice which they are doing very successfully right now. They are determined to finish us off before we can take in the facts and develop an organized response.

    But don't mind me - you just go on attending those Ron Paul, Bob Barr and Barrack Obama rallies - after all it doesn't matter whether Moslems or Jews did 9-11does it, so why should you care, right? TAfter all crime is not Jews doing 9-11, the crime in this country today is daring to point out what they have done. Ain't that right?

    Well forgive me, but you have to know. Wake up, damn it, and see who has you by the throat.

911 False Flag

From this video:

    At 8:13 Pete Zalewski sees the information on his radar screen that the transponder is no longer transmitting, that the pilot of American Airlines flight 11 is no longer responding and that the flight route has been changed.

    Instead of immediately sounding the alarm we hear that he attempted repeatedly to contact the aircraft. From 8:13 to 8:24 a.m., this Pete Zalewski supposedly called the captain of AA11, "Hello.. please respond," as opposed to the necessity of securing the airspace he has nothing better to do than try to restore contact. No! I cannot believe that. That cannot be true.

     
    If I were the head of an air traffic control center, I would replace the person when I ascertained, that an aircraft that he was responsible for just disappeared into the World Trade Center. He was also responsible for the second aircraft, United Airlines flight 175.

     
    The most interesting thing yet, which has been reported by another air traffic controller, is that he was responsible for a third plane - Egypt Airlines flight 990, two years prior, that was packed to the brim with Egyptian military officials of the highest rank. It executed a strange maneuver near the coast then sank into the Atlantic......

After watching this video listen to the details how the evidence established beyond reasonable doubt that EgyptAir 990 was taken over by remote control in the early hours of Oct. 31, 1999. I was interviewed by Giuliani here in 2006 but also by Tom Valentine's program where I was interviewed along with Chris Bollyn.

 
I had no idea until seeing the above German clip that the same JEWISH air traffic controller happened to be assigned to be ATC for Egypt Air and both WTC tower planes.


Charles Giuliani talking with Dick Eastman about 9-11 research

"Remote-Control Crash-Bombings"
by Dick Eastman

16 July 2008

    Add to this the news stories of the 94 Israelis at Reagan and Dulles airports, each with illegal top security passes at the time of 9-11 - and each quietly deported by Attorney General Ashcroft a few months after the attack.

    - Dick Eastman

Also:

    "Chris Bollyn has established that there is a connection between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Menachem Atzmon, the man who oversaw passenger screening and airport security at Boston's Logan Airport on 9/11 - Olmert and Atzmon are truly very close political allies and co-defendants in old Likud crimes."

    "...there is the very bizarre and suspicious Israeli link to the security of U.S. military computers that goes back to the early 1990s. (Remember the reports of Ptech and MITRE engaged in the basement of the FAA before 9/11?)... One must also keep in mind that 9/11 was primarily a computer crime, just like the stealing of our elections. Long before 9/11, a germ was planted in the U.S. defense computer system which allowed for a "super-user" to control the network and create the miscommunications that prevented the U.S. military from defending New York and Washington on that terrible day.

    "As I have written earlier, the members of the YORAN family from Israel are among the key suspects, along with Michael Chertoff and others. I consider the YORANS to be high-ranking Israeli moles who infiltrated the most sensitive computer networks in the U.S. government and military - Zionest agents who facilitated the terror attacks of 9/11.

    "The YORAN family includes, Dr. Chaim Yoran (a.k.a. Elad Yoran), his wife Ruth Lubelski Yoran, and their three sons: Amit Y. Yoran, Dov Yoran, and Naftali Elad Yoran.

    "...The Yoran sons, Amit and Naftali Elad, are graduates of Westpoint. From this U.S.-based launching pad they went on to take over computer security for Dept. of Defense computer networks."

For example, Forbes Magazine, in December 2001, wrote this about Amit Yoran:

    "Yoran, 32, earned degrees in computer science from West Point and George Washington University before joining the U.S. Air Force (?), where he took a job overseeing the emergency response team at the Defense Information Systems Agency ( ??). DSIA runs all military networks (!!!)."

Chamish:

    "Menachem Atzmon... was Likud Treasurer along with Olmert in the late 80s," I answered. Then he playfully announced, "Did you know he was personally responsible for security at Logan and Newark Airports on 9/11?"

That I DIDN'T know.

Here is Bollyn's report:

    OLMERT AND ATZMON
    Olmert, who has long been tarnished by allegations of financial crimes, was implicated in a financial scandal involving forged receipts for donations to the 1988 Likud campaign, of which he was co-treasurer. This affair culminated in the March 1996 conviction of three other Likudniks, including Menahem Atzmon, the Likud treasurer. Olmert was also later indicted in the Likud affair, but was acquitted.

    During the 1970s Olmert had worked in the law firm owned by another Atzmon, Uzi Atzmon.

    Menahem Atzmon, convicted in Israel, went on to become the founder and head of International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS), the parent company of Huntleigh USA, the airport security firm that ran passenger screening operations at the airports of Boston and Newark on 9/11.

    Huntleigh USA is a wholly owned subsidiary of an Israeli company called International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS) International N.V., a Netherlands-based aviation and transportation security firm headed by "former [Israeli] military commanding officers and veterans of government intelligence and security agencies."

    Menachem Atzmon, convicted in Israel in 1996 for campaign finance fraud, and his business partner Ezra Harel, took over management of security at the Boston and Newark airports when their company ICTS bought Huntleigh USA in 1999. UAL Flight 175 and AA 11, which allegedly struck the twin towers, both originated in Boston, while UAL 93, which purportedly crashed in Pennsylvania, departed from the Newark airport.

    The convicted Israeli criminal Atzmon also controls and operates the German port of Rostock on the Baltic Sea.

    Some 9/11 victims' families brought lawsuits against Huntleigh claiming the security firm had been grossly negligent on 9-11. While these relatives have a right to discovery and to know what Huntleigh did or did not do to protect their loved ones on 9-11, Huntleigh, along with the other security companies, was granted complete congressional protection in 2002 and will not be called to account for its actions on 9-11 in any U.S. court.

    Atzmon, a convicted criminal, political ally and co-defendant of Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert, was directly responsible for passenger and airline security at Boston's Logan Airport.

    ...Menachem Atzmon resigned as president of Friedman's IDF following his 1996 conviction for Israeli election campaign finance fraud. But his later U.S. activities would prove to be much more disturbing.

    Atzmon and his business partner Ezra Harel are the majority owners (57%) of ICTS-International Consultants on Targeted Security, run by "former [Israeli] military commanding officers and veterans of government intelligence and security agencies" according its Web site. In 1999, Atzmon's Netherlands-based firm took over management of security at Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts, through ICTS' subsidiary Huntleigh USA.

    This convicted Likud criminal's firm was in charge of security at Logan Airport-inspecting the validity of passports and visas, searching cargo, screening passengers-when two airliners were hijacked from there on Sept. 11, 2001, and demolished the World Trade Center towers in New York.[...]

94 Israelis at Reagan and Dulles airports, each with illegal top security passes at the time of 9-11 - and each quietly deported by Attorney General Ashcroft a few months after the attack.
 

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 100 employees at two major Washington-area airports have been arrested on fraud charges in obtaining restricted airport security badges, government sources said on Tuesday.

    The arrests will be announced by Attorney General John Ashcroft later in the day in Alexandria, Virginia, officials said.

    The arrests mark a continuing post Sept. 11 crackdown by U.S. law enforcement and transportation authorities on airport security lapses.

    Many of the charges - including those being brought against workers at Washington's Ronald Reagan National Airport and Dulles International Airport outside the capital involve allegations that suspects violated immigration and Social Security laws.

    Also, the government alleges that many arrested on Tuesday in the greater Washington area lied about criminal records while applying for security badges, the sources said.

    It was unclear initially what jobs those employees performed.

    As of last week, more than 250 people had been arrested at 11 U.S. airports on charges they fraudulently obtained credentials for access to sensitive airport areas like ramps, gates and aircraft.

    Roughly half have pleaded guilty or have plea arguments pending, authorities said. More than 70 have been deported or are awaiting deportation proceedings, 94 foreigners in the country illegally with top-security badges were at Dulles and Reagan airports on 9/11/01

 From "Zacheim - Following Zakheim and Pentagon trillions to Israel and 9-11"

July 31, 2006

Most people familiar with the 9/11 cover-up have a fair idea of some of the key players in the monumental 9/11 crime.

 
Rabbi Dov Zakheim, one of the central figures in this vile operation, isn't as well known because he's one who has always lurked in the shadows.

 
Zakheim is as powerful as he is inconspicuous, and a man of many talents:

   1.

      Graduate of the prestigious London School of Economics (PhD), and the University of Oxford (National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow)
   2.

      Former CEO of Systems Planning Corporation, a highly specialized defense technology company that manufactures a one-of-a-kind remote-piloting system for aircraft, including commercial airliners (see below)
   3.

      Senior Fellow for Asian Studies of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
   4.

      Member of the Task Force on Defense Reform (appointed by Secretary of Defense Cohen)
   5.

      Senior Advisor at the Center for International and Strategic Studies
   6.

      Former Under Secretary of Defense (appointed by George W. Bush)
   7.

      Comptroller of the Pentagon (see [1] below for performance report)
   8.

      Pioneer and prime architect of /Project for the New American Century /(PNAC), the neo-con cabal that authored /Rearming America’s Defenses/ (RAD), the bible for American global domination [2]
   9.

      Author of “Flight Of The Lavi: Inside A US-Israeli Crisis” (Brassey’s, 1996)
  10.

      Long-time Bush associate, having served as a policy advisor to the governor during the 2000 campaign
  11.

      Columnist for The Jerusalem Post
  12.

      Editorial Board member of Israel Affairs
  13.

      Ordained Rabbi
  14.

      Citizen of the State of Israel

      [How a citizen of Israel can serve as Comptroller of America’s central defense establishment is a question I shall leave to others for comment. While they ponder this perturbing oddity, perhaps they could also shed light on why every one of the following kingpins of the Bush administration are also Israeli citizens: Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Michael Chertoff, George Tenet, Elliot Abrams, Donald Kagan, Richard Haas, Kenneth Adelman, Edward Luttwak, Robert Satloff, David Frum, David Wurmser, Steve Goldsmith, and MarcGrossman.]

 

[1] ”I know Dr. Zakheim has been trying to hire CPAs because the financial systems of the department are so snarled up that we can’t account for some /_$2.6 TRILLION_/ in transactions that exist...” - Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, during testimony before the House Appropriations Committee: Fiscal Year 2002 Defense Budget Request, as given by Secy. Rumsfeld, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Hugh Shelton, and Comptroller Dov Zakheim; on Monday, July 16, 2001./ [NB: Dr. Zakheim resigned as Pentagon Comptroller and Chief Financial Officer at the beginning of March when it was revealed that the he is unable to account for the disappearance of $2.6 trillion(it’s unlikely this will receive much coverage in the mainstream media). Zakheim has since taken a lucrative position as a vice president of the mega-consultancy Booz, Allen, & Hamilton (one that also works closely with DARPA). Rabbi Zakheim is also Chief Executive Officer of SPC International Corporation (a subsidiary of the aforementioned remote-flight-control-technology firm), a company that specializes in “political, military, and economic consulting, and international sales and analysis”. In addition, Dr. Zakheim serves as Consultant to the Secretary of Defense and the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy. As the Rabbi’s record clearly shows, he has serious tenure in the US defense establishment: more than 30 years of holding assorted senior positions at the Pentagon.]


[2] Dov Zakheim is the co-author of that singularly sinister-and chillingly ominous-statement contained in Rearming America’s Defenses (RAD) re the plan for American global domination [through galvanizing American emotional support for full-scale war against oil-rich Arab states]: ”...the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, /absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event-like a new Pearl Harbor/”. The PNAC document also expressly recommends the US should seize Iraq /even if Saddam Hussein were deposed through a military coup/. [So much for bringing “freedom and democracy” to the people of that country.]

 
The good Rabbi’s involvement with PNAC, his previous directorship of a corporation that manufactures remote control flight systems, and his inability to document how the Pentagon has spent TRILLIONS of American taxpayers’ dollars suggests that real investigations into the crimes of 9/11 and the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq would put Mr. Zakheim near the top of the witness list for interrogation and potential prosecution.

 
SYSTEMS PLANNING CORPORATION

Dr. Dov Zakheim was the former CEO of Systems Planning Corporation, a company that designs and manufactures extremely sophisticated control/guidance technology that enables an external operator to fly, and land, aircraft by remote control.

 
One of the company's principal products is the Command Transmitter System (CTS), a fully redundant, self-contained, solid-state platform capable of providing totally programmable remote flight control capability, including high- precision electronic navigation.

The company's parallel product, the Flight Termination System (FTS), enables system-equipped aircraft to be safely landed on any suitable runway in the world-regardless of the availability of ground-based navigational or landing aids (VOR, ILS, MLS, etc.).

Such total independence in all flight regimes is achieved through a variety of ultra-sophisticated space-based technologies, including Mil-spec DGPS (Differential GPS, using extremely precise encrypted military "P" Code transmissions), and is accurate to within /one foot/ of the runway centerline during landing.

* The CTS/FTS remote-control system is capable of controlling up to 8 airborne vehicles-including airliners-simultaneously from ground-based or airborne (AWACS) positions.

* ["Coincidence": Operation Vigilant Guardian, one of five NORAD "war game exercises" underway on the morning of 9/11 and orchestrated byDick Cheney, involved the *simulated hijacking of commercial airliners*. At one point during the exercises, while the four "real" hijacked aircraft were airborne, as many as TWENTY-TWO independent radar blips representing "hijacked" aircraft were simultaneously displayed on FAA radar screens along the Eastern seaboard. This, obviously, created total pandemonium. Air traffic controllers who had been advised beforehand by NORAD of the "simulated hijackings", began frantically calling NORAD to determine which of the twenty-two targets were "real" and which were "exercise." All indications are that whatever it was that happened to the four real "hijacked" airliners occurred during this purposefully orchestrated melee while the order was given for the US Air Force to "stand down".]

The CTS/FTS system (subsequently improved, tested and implemented by Raytheon) allows specialist ground controllers to listen-in on cockpit conversations on the target aircraft, then take absolute control of its computerized flight control system by remote means and safely land the aircraft at any airport within range.

In other words, this technology was designed to empower "law enforcement agencies" to hijack hijackers.

[NB: The ground station technology for CTS/FTS was developed by Raytheon under an Air Force contract for the Joint Precision Approach and Landings System (JPALS) program. A government-industry team accomplished the first precision approach/auto-land by a civil aircraft using this system on August 25, 2001 at Holloman AFB, NM. 'A FedEx Express 727-200 aircraft demonstrated hundred percent system proficiency by executing six full auto-lands using the JPALS ground station'.]
 

"HOME RUN"

In partnership with Raytheon, System Planning Corporation also supplies CTS/FTS technology to commercial airplane manufacturers for installation in airliners (Boeing: confirmed; Airbus: undetermined, but highly probable given the consortium's connection to BAE, a US military contractor.)

It has been reported that DARPA's codename for the CTS/FTS system was "Home Run". Former German Secretary of Defense Andreas Von Buelow may have alluded to foreknowledge of Home Run technology in an interview he gave the German daily "Tagesspiegel" on January 13th, 2002:

    "There is also the theory of one British flight engineer: according to this, the steering of the planes was perhaps taken out of the pilots' hands, from outside. The Americans had developed a method in the 1970s, whereby they could rescue hijacked planes by intervening into the computer piloting [automatic pilot system]. This theory says this technique was abused in this case [9/11]..."

Upon deeper scrutiny this may not appear quite so much a "theory" as might first seem.

 
It's been reported that the German national carrier Lufthansa, seriously concerned that one of its own aircraft might be "rescued" by the Americans without its authority, had every one of its Home Run-equipped Boeing aircraft stripped of the American flight control computers. It's reasonable to presume that Herr Von Buelow - the Secretary of Defense and Minister of Science and Technology at the time-would have known all about this mammoth but secretive task (how very clever-and discreet-of Von Buelow to "drop" the information into the middle of an interview about the 9/11 attacks).

 
Lufthansa aircraft (and possibly others) are now effectively impervious to Home Run take-overs, but that is more than can be said for the American aircraft fleet.

In order to make Home Run truly effective, it had to be completely integrated with all onboard systems, and this could only be accomplished with a new aircraft design, several of which were on the drawing boards at that time. Under cover of extreme secrecy, the multinationals and DARPA went ahead on this basis and built "back doors" into the new computerized flight control systems.

There were two very obvious hard requirements at this stage: 1) a primary control channel for use in taking over the flight control system and flying the aircraft back to an airfield of choice, and 2) a covert audio channel for monitoring flight deck conversations. Once the primary channel was activated, all aircraft functions came under direct ground (or AWACS) control, permanently removing the hijackers and pilots from the control loop.

It needs mention that this was not a system designed to "undermine" the authority of the flight crews, but rather, implemented as a "doomsday" device in the event the hijackers began to shoot passengers or crew members, possibly including the pilots.

 
Based on the reasonable assumption that hijackers only carry a limited number of rounds of ammunition, and many modern airliners carry in excess of 300 passengers, Home Run was envisaged as a system that could be used to fly all the survivors to a friendly airport for a safe landing.

System Activation

Activating the primary Home Run channel is reportedly fairly straightforward.

A transponder, as many readers know, is a combined radio transmitter and receiver which operates automatically-in the case of 9/11, relaying data between the four aircraft and air traffic controllers on the ground. The transmitted signals represent a unique "identity" for each aircraft, essential in crowded airspace to avoid midair collisions-and equally essential for Home Run controllers trying to lock onto the correct aircraft.

Once the correct target aircraft is located by radar, the Home Run duplex data bus "piggy backs" the transponder channel and assumes direct control from the ground. This could explain why NONE of the four aircraft sent the special "I have been hijacked" transponder code (7500), despite 'multiple activation points' for this distress transmission on all four aircraft-and despite being flown by combat-hardened ex-fighter pilots.

 
Because the transponder frequency had already been piggy-backed by Home Run, transmission of the special hijack code was rendered impossible. This was the first hard proof that the target aircraft had been hijacked electronically from the ground, rather than by Arab patsies toting box-cutters.

The Home Run listening device on the flight deck utilizes the cockpit microphones that normally feed the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR), one of two black boxes armored to withstand heavy impact and thereby later provide investigators significant clues to why the aircraft crashed. However, once plugged into Home Run, the CVRs are bypassed, and voice transmissions are no longer recorded on the 30minute continuous-loop recording tape.

If Home Run is active for more than thirty minutes, there will therefore be no audible data on the Cockpit Voice Recorders. Crash investigators are said to have recovered the CVRs from the Pentagon and Pittsburg aircraft, and publicly confirmed that both are completely blank.

 
The only possible reason for this is data capture by Home Run, providing the final hard proof that the attack aircraft were hijacked electronically from the ground, rather than by "Arab terrorists".

Discussion

It is not being suggested that remote circumvention and take-over of the four airliners' controls is definitely what happened on 9/11.

 
But if this scenario seems improbable, one must necessarily consider the probability of four airliners being taken over simultaneously, casually flown around a large swath of the country for almost two hours under the vigilant eye of NORAD, and then used as missiles-all without a single fighter being scrambled to intercept any of them.

Since this is what actually happened, we have no choice but to consider other "implausible" scenarios. And since the official scenario is itself an unsubstantiated-and truly farfetched-"conspiracy theory," other competing scenarios should also receive serious attention.

The public's reluctance to question official doctrine on this matter is a symptom of the societal role for which most of us have been bred and trained: to be ever-faithful hounds, tails thumping the floor as we contentedly slurp the hand of class authority.

 
Such credulity also becomes inevitable when the alternative is so unbearable: if someone in Bush's position is capable of lying to us about something as huge, as gut-wrenchingly horrible as 9/11, then everything we believe about this country-about the nature of civilization itself-might just be childish nonsense.

Most people simply don't have the guts to go there. Given a desperate enough need to sustain the childish belief in government-as-benevolent-father, a person will adapt that belief to any circumstance. The behavioral end result can resemble courage; indeed, we are taught to regard it as the DEFINITION of courage. Actually, it's one of cowardice's darkest moments. Even a casual examination of Nazi Germany, where this phenomenon was rampant, will drive this point home.

It's almost funny, the way people readily see the threat of technological circumvention presented by Diebold's electronic voting machines, yet when the subject switches to Systems Planning Corporation's Flight Termination System, which is every bit as real, and to the exactly parallel possibilities it represents vis-a-vis 9/11, they suddenly retreat into profound and combative denial.


It's as if a threshold has been crossed into a realm of possibilities too vile to entertain, so they simply don't. Never mind that this country's operatives have been traveling the world, perpetrating similar horrors, for all of the past century.

Rather than acknowledge the possibility of a unifying pattern, Joe Sixpack would much rather 'shoot the messenger.' Every so often, such people establish a new high-water mark for cowardice and facultative stupidity, and the present is definitely one of those times.


After all, the official 9/11 scenario they cling to with such desperate faith comes from only one source: the Western "intelligence community"-the most brazen, systematic, resourceful, and interlocked association of habitual liars this world has ever seen.

As should have been made clear by any number of intelligence scandals over the years, the credibility of this bunch goes past zero into the negative: pending airtight proof, anything they say should be reflexively deemed a lie.

 
You may remember that the FBI also provided the identities of "the 19 hijackers" within hours-information that soon also became quite suspect, especially considering there was NOT ONE Arab name on any of the flight manifests (miraculously, they even found paper passports that had survived fireballs, Arabic flight manuals conveniently left in the trunks of cars, etc., etc.)

At least seven of the hijackers are still alive in the Middle East-a pretty good alibi, wouldn't you say? Several of these ex-suspects had their passports or other IDs stolen from them over the years, and it's entirely possible that all 19 hijackers had stolen identities, meaning they could have come from anywhere-or been absent altogether.


Our media were pretty slack about acknowledging this at the time, and since then have dropped this ball entirely. What's really amazing is that not one mainstream journalist has asked how these 19 alleged hijackers boarded their aircraft when their names were not on any of the passenger manifests.

Rather than allow the "intelligence community" to render every detail of our comprehension on this matter, we would be much wiser to carefully identify and discard every assumption they hand us.

Subject: Chertoff, Zakheim, Perle, Wolfowitz and a hundred others in high places have Dual US-Israeli Citizenship - where does their loyalty lie? (UK Telegraph blog)

Dual Citizenship - where does the loyalty lie?
UK Telegraph blog
17 May 2008

In this increasingly mobile world more and more people are acquiring dual citizenship.


Usually it's simply their adopted country and their native country but in some cases, particularly in the USA, there is another motive for duality.

Take a look at these people who currently or have recently held positions of great influence and power in the American administration and ask yourself where do their loyalties lie?

Puzzling too is the fact that under US law if you take up the citizenship of another country you relinquish your US citizenship. So how do these people achieve the impossible?

 
If you are a supporter of the Israeli state how do you feel about the USA being infiltrated and usurped by its friend 'ally'?
 

Dual Citizenship - Loyal to Whom?
(With all acknowledgements to Dan Eden who has produced a very comprehensive and revealing article)

 
Michael Mukasey
Recently appointed as US Attorney General. Mukasey also was the judge in the litigation between developer Larry Silverstein and several insurance companies arising from the destruction of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001.
 

Michael Chertoff
Former Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, at the Justice Department; now head of Homeland Security.
 

Richard Perle
One of Bush's foreign policy advisors, he is the chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board. A very likely Israeli government agent, Perle was expelled from Senator Henry Jackson's office in the 1970's after the National Security Agency (NSA) caught him passing Highly-Classified (National Security) documents to the Israeli Embassy.

 
He later worked for the Israeli weapons firm, Soltam. Perle came from one the above mentioned pro-Israel thinktanks, the AEI. Perle is one of the leading pro-Israeli fanatics leading this Iraq war mongering within the administration and now in the media.
 

Paul Wolfowitz
Former Deputy Defense Secretary, and member of Perle's Defense Policy Board, in the Pentagon. Wolfowitz is a close associate of Perle, and reportedly has close ties to the Israeli military. His sister lives in Israel. Wolfowitz came from the above mentioned Jewish think-tank, JINSA. Wolfowitz was the number two leader within the administration behind this Iraq war mongering.

 
He later was appointed head of the World Bank but resigned under pressure from World Bank members over a scandal involving his misuse of power.
 

Lawrence (Larry) Franklin
The former Defense Intelligence Agency analyst with expertise in Iranian policy issues who worked in the office of Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith and reported directly to Feith's deputy, William Luti, was sentenced January 20, 2006,

    "to more than 12 years in prison for giving classified information to an Israeli diplomat" and members of the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Franklin will "remain free while the government continues with the wider case" and his "prison time could be sharply reduced in return for his help in prosecuting" former AIPAC members Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weissman, [who] are scheduled to go on trial in April [2006].

     
    Franklin admitted that he met periodically with Rosen and Weissman between 2002 and 2004 and discussed classified information, including information about potential attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq. Rosen and Weissman would later share what they learned with reporters and Israeli officials."

(source: sourcewatch.com).
 

 
Douglas Feith
Under Secretary of Defense and Policy Advisor at the Pentagon. He is a close associate of Perle and served as his Special Counsel. Like Perle and the others, Feith is a pro-Israel extremist, who has advocated anti-Arab policies in the past.

 
He is closely associated with the extremist group, the Zionist Organization of America, which even attacks Jews that don't agree with its extremist views. Feith frequently speaks at ZOA conferences. Feith runs a small law firm, Feith and Zell, which only has one International office, in Israel.

 
The majority of their legal work is representing Israeli interests. His firm's own website stated, prior to his appointment, that Feith "represents Israeli Armaments Manufacturer." Feith basically represents the Israeli War Machine. Feith also came from the Jewish thinktank JINSA. Feith, like Perle and Wolfowitz, are campaigning hard for this Israeli proxy war against Iraq.

Feith was investigated by the FBI under suspicion of leaking classified information to Israel, being that he was Larry Franklin's boss when Franklin leaked those documents to Rosen and Weissman of AIPAC. For that he was forced to leave the National Security Council. Feith was also investigated by the Senate Intelligence Committee for sexing up 'intelligence' that was used to justify invading Iraq.
 

Edward Luttwak
Member of the National Security Study Group of the Department of Defence at the Pentagon. Luttwak is reportedly an Israeli citizen and has taught in Israel. He frequently writes for Israeli and pro-Israeli newspapers and journals. Luttwak is an Israeli extremist whose main theme in many of his articles is the necessity of the U.S. waging war against Iraq and Iran.
 

Henry Kissinger
One of many Pentagon Advisors, Kissinger sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle. For detailed information about Kissinger's evil past, read Seymour Hersch's book (Price of Power: Kissinger in the Nixon White House). Kissinger likely had a part in the Watergate crimes, Southeast Asia mass murders (Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos), Installing Chilean mass murdering dictator Pinochet, Operation Condor's mass killings in South America, and more recently served as Serbia's Ex-Dictator Slobodan Milosevic's Advisor.

 
He consistently advocated going to war against Iraq. Kissinger is the Ariel Sharon of the U.S. Unfortunately, President Bush nominated Kissinger as chairman of the September 11 investigating commission. It's like picking a bank robber to investigate a fraud scandal. He later declined this job under enormous protests.
 

Dov Zakheim
Dov Zakheim is an ordained rabbi and reportedly holds Israeli citizenship. Zakheim attended Jew's College in London and became an ordained Orthodox Jewish Rabbi in 1973. He was adjunct professor at New York's Jewish Yeshiva University. Zakheim is close to the Israeli lobby.

Dov Zakheim is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and in 2000 a co-author of the Project for the New American Century's position paper, Rebuilding America's Defenses, advocating the necessity for a Pearl-Harbor-like incident to mobilize the country into war with its enemies, mostly Middle Eastern Muslim nations.

 
He was appointed by Bush as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. At that time he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. Actually, nearly three years earlier, Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10, 2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. That story, as mentioned, was buried under 9-11's rubble. The two sums disappeared on Zakheim's watch. We can only guess where that cash went.

Despite these suspicions, on May 6, 2004, Zakheim took a lucrative position at Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the most prestigious strategy consulting firms in the world. One of its clients then was Blessed Relief, a charity said to be a front for Osama bin Laden. Booz, Allen & Hamilton then also worked closely with DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is the research arm of the Department of Defense.

 
Judicial Inc's bio of Dov tells us Zakheim is a dual Israeli/American citizen and has been tracking the halls of US government for 25 years, casting defense policy and influence on Presidents Reagan, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. Judicial Inc points out that most of Israel's armaments were gotten thanks to him.

 
Squads of US F-16 and F-15 were classified military surplus and sold to Israel at a fraction of their value.
 

Kenneth Adelman
One of many Pentagon Advisors, Adelman also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle, and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor, who supported going to war against Iraq. Adelman frequently is a guest on Fox News, and often expresses extremist and often ridiculous anti-Arab and anti-Muslim views.

 
Through his racism or ignorance, he actually called Arabs "anti-Semitic" on Fox News (11/28/2001), when he could have looked it up in the dictionary to find out that Arabs by definition are Semites.
 

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby
Vice President Dick Cheney's ex-Chief of Staff. As chief pro-Israel Jewish advisor to Cheney, it helps explains why Cheney is so gun-ho to invade Iran. Libby is longtime associate of Wolfowitz. Libby was also a lawyer for convicted felon and Israeli spy Marc Rich, whom Clinton pardoned, in his last days as president.

 
Libby was recently found guilty of lying to Federal investigators in the Valerie Plame affair, in which Plame, a covert CIA agent, was exposed for political revenge by the Bush administration following her husband's revelations about the lies leading to the Iraq War.
 

Robert Satloff
U.S. National Security Council Advisor, Satloff was the executive director of the Israeli lobby's "think tank," Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Many of the Israeli lobby's "experts" come from this front group, like Martin Indyk.
 

Elliott Abrams
National Security Council Advisor. He previously worked at Washington-based "Think Tank" Ethics and Public Policy Center. During the Reagan Administration, Abrams was the Assistant Secretary of State, handling, for the most part, Latin American affairs. He played an important role in the Iran-Contra Scandal, which involved illegally selling U.S. weapons to Iran to fight Iraq, and illegally funding the contra rebels fighting to overthrow Nicaragua's Sandinista government.

 
He also actively deceived three congressional committees about his involvement and thereby faced felony charges based on his testimony. Abrams pled guilty in 1991 to two misdemeanors and was sentenced to a year's probation and 100 hours of community service. A year later, former President Bush (Senior) granted Abrams a full pardon. He was one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews in the Reagan Administration's State Department.
 

Marc Grossman
Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. He was Director General of the Foreign Service and Director of Human Resources at the Department of State. Grossman is one of many of the pro-Israel Jewish officials from the Clinton Administration that Bush has promoted to higher posts.
 

Richard Haass
Director of Policy Planning at the State Department and Ambassador at large. He is also Director of National Security Programs and Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).

 
He was one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews in the first Bush (Sr) Administration who sat on the National Security Council, and who consistently advocated going to war against Iraq. Haass is also a member of the Defense Department's National Security Study Group, at the Pentagon.
 

Robert Zoellick
U.S. Trade Representative, a cabinet-level position. He is also one of the more hawkish pro-Israel Jews in the Bush (Jr) Administration who advocated invading Iraq and occupying a portion of the country in order to set up a Vichy-style puppet government. He consistently advocates going to war against Iran. {now head of the World Bank - Peter M.}
 

Ari Fleischer
Ex- White House Spokesman for the Bush (Jr) Administration. Prominent in the Jewish community, some reports state that he holds Israeli citizenship. Fleischer is closely connected to the extremist Jewish group called the Chabad Lubavitch Hasidics, who follow the Qabala, and hold very extremist and insulting views of non-Jews.

 
Fleischer was the co-president of Chabad's Capitol Jewish Forum. He received the Young Leadership Award from the American Friends of Lubavitch in October, 2001.
 

James Schlesinger
One of many Pentagon Advisors, Schlesinger also sits on the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor, who supported going to war against Iraq. Schlesinger is also a commissioner of the Defense Department's National Security Study Group, at the Pentagon.
 

David Frum
White House speechwriter behind the "Axis of Evil" label. He lumped together all the lies and accusations against Iraq for Bush to justify the war.
 

Joshua Bolten
White House Deputy Chief of Staff, Bolten was previously a banker, former legislative aide, and prominent in the Jewish community.
 

John Bolton
Former UN Representative and Under-Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. Bolton is also a Senior Advisor to President Bush. Prior to this position, Bolton was Senior Vice President of the above mentioned pro-Israel thinktank, AEI.

 
He recently (October 2002) accused Syria of having a nuclear program, so that they can attack Syria after Iraq. He must have forgotten that Israel has 400 nuclear warheads, some of which are thermonuclear weapons (according to a recent U.S. Air Force report).
 

David Wurmser
Special Assistant to John Bolton (above), the under-secretary for arms control and international security. Wurmser also worked at the AEI with Perle and Bolton. His wife, Meyrav Wurmser, along with Colonel Yigal Carmon, formerly of Israeli military intelligence, co-founded the Middle East Media Research Institute (Memri),a Washington-based Israeli outfit which distributes articles translated from Arabic newspapers portraying Arabs in a bad light.
 

Eliot Cohen
Member of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board under Perle and is another extremist pro-Israel advisor. Like Adelman, he often expresses extremist and often ridiculus anti-Arab and anti-Muslim views. More recently, he wrote an opinion article in the Wall Street Journal openly admitting his rascist hatred of Islam claiming that Islam should be the enemy, not terrorism.
 

Mel Sembler
President of the Export-Import Bank of the United States. A Prominent Jewish Republican and Former National Finance Chairman of the Republican National Committee. The Export-Import Bank facilitates trade relationships between U.S. businesses and foreign countries, specifically those with financial problems.
 

Steve Goldsmith
Senior Advisor to the President, and Bush's Jewish domestic policy advisor. He also served as liaison in the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives (White House OFBCI) within the Executive Office of the President.

 
He was the former mayor of Indianapolis. He is also friends with Israeli Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert and often visits Israel to coach mayors on privatization initiatives.

Joseph Gildenhorn
Bush Campaign's Special Liaison to the Jewish Community. He was the DC finance chairman for the Bush campaign, as well as campaign coordinator, and former ambassador to Switzerland.

     How a citizen of Israel can serve as Comptroller of America’s central defense establishment is a question I shall leave to others for comment. While they ponder this perturbing oddity, perhaps they could also shed light on why every one of the following kingpins of the Bush administration are also Israeli citizens: Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Michael Chertoff, George Tenet, Elliot Abrams, Donald Kagan, Richard Haas, Kenneth Adelman, Edward Luttwak, Robert Satloff, David Frum, David Wurmser, Steve Goldsmith, and MarcGrossman.

I certainly don't subscribe to the "Israeli only", "Mossad only", or "Zionist-extremist only" models of 911.  Absolutely, any theory that doesn't take into account the Bushes, Carlyle group, Ptech/Promis, Booz Allen Hamilton, and U.S. gov't. involvement is likley entirely incomplete.

That having been said,  it seems quite possible, maybe even likely that the Israelis/Mossad and their supporters in the U.S. played a role, and perhaps a key role in the events of that day.  Sabrosky's "the Israelis did it"does seem entirely too reductionistic and given his realtionship to military and government too convenient.  Maybe, this shows how desperate the other side has become in its efforts to deflect blame/responsibility.

Are elements of the U.S. gov't. who were involved in planning and carrying out these false-flag attacks turning on their Israeli friends, or is this all just a side-show?  Unfortunately, I am beginning to suspect the latter.

I agree 1,000%

 I actually didn't see that you had posted something.

Ok, I see what you wrote. I didn't see any focused points.

 First off I don't claim that only Mossad pulled off this operation. I am saying this was a Zionist/Israeli/American Zionist operation. The Pentagon was completely infiltrated by Dual citizen Israelis and Zionists.
Ptech was a Mossad front.

The transfer agreement is mainline history. It's not some secret knowledge that you have learned. Abe Foxman wrote the forward for a book about the transfer agreement so TPTB want it out there.

I charge that you are willfully ignoring the staggering evidence against Zionist Jews and shifting it on to all of the Christians and Muslims you can find while ignoring the masterminds and key players in the crime and cover up.

I charge that you are a professional troll and this Sobrosky thing has really got your panties in a bunch.

I charge that the media would have gladly gone after Bush and Cheney if it was found that 911 was a US/CIA orchestrated false flag.(see Watergate,Iran Contra, Lewinskygate, pentagon papers etc) I charge that the American media is controlled by Zionists and know the attacks would lead back to Israel and American Zionist Jews in the US government/intelligence agencies.

As for your "wall of text contest"...go nuts. I think what lightcaster posted above is sufficient for me.

I actually didn't see that you had posted something.

Ok, I see what you wrote. I didn't see any focused points.

 First off I don't claim that only Mossad pulled off this operation. I am saying this was a Zionist/Israeli/American Zionist operation. The Pentagon was completely infiltrated by Dual citizen Israelis and Zionists.
Ptech was a Mossad front.

The transfer agreement is mainline history. It's not some secret knowledge that you have learned. Abe Foxman wrote the forward for a book about the transfer agreement so TPTB want it out there.

I charge that you are willfully ignoring the staggering evidence against Zionist Jews and shifting it on to all of the Christians and Muslims you can find while ignoring the masterminds and key players in the crime and cover up.

I charge that you are a professional troll and this Sobrosky thing has really got your panties in a bunch.

Well that is I guess a plausible scenario, unfortunately as explained, sobrosky limits his investigation and therefore does not take into account bilderberg which created israel and the mossad, like they created the cia and refined mi6. obviously you want to keep this charade up to willfully limit the extent of the issue and take a simplistic view of targeting just one tentacle of the octopus. so since you seem to only understand walls of text and still deny just replying to the focused critique of the guy that has my panties in a bunch (ouchy ouchy) I will comply to your only form of communication with the text walls.

happy reading

the truth does not fear investigation, so please stop willfully limiting your investigation

The National Archives has just received the materials of the 9/11 commission.
http://www.archives.gov/

These are the notes and interviews and reports the 9/11 commission is now letting the public see, that they based their story on.

Lets grab one and take a look.....

In this "Memorandum for the Record" is reported a discussion among Banking experts, assisting the 9/11 Commission. This occurred on March 8 2004
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

Who are these experts? Well turns out there are three...

"Present, non-Commission: John Byrne (ABA), Nick Caruso (Riggs), Allen Able (Price Waterhouse Coopers)"
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

Here's some Nuggets from this memorandum...

"The purpose of this interview was to engage representatives of the banking industry on the changes in anti money laundering (AML) and anti terrorist financing (ATF) compliance since 9/11, with a particular focus on the USA PATRIOT Act (USAPA)."

Here they admit that the money laundering bills were already written and have nothing to do with terrorism.....

"The USAP was a compilation of old AML bills that "never would have seen the light of day" were it not for 9/11."
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

"The panel characterized the USPA as an "understandable knee jerk reaction" to the attacks, but they characterized it as not thought through. Byrne noted that you had to look hard to find anything really related to terrorist financing within the USPA, although the account opening requirements may be useful in
that regard."


"The panel noted that while the USPA doesn't have much specific to terrorism in it, it is generally perceived that way, particularly to bank management. As a result, it has bolstered compliance resources at the banks."

"With regard to good things coming out of the USAPA, the panel said that the 319(b) sharing provisions, which allows banks to obtain financial information from other banks for the purpose of investigating suspicious activity, was very helpful. The only problem is that it does not cover foreign banks that operate in the US."
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

Now it gets really good......cover up time....

"9/11 hijackers

"Each member of the panel was familiar with the 9/11 hijackers financial transactions and each has come to the conclusion that a better scrutiny of the financial transactions would not have resulted in discovering them."
page 3/4
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

Oh really?............................




Who are these guys again?

"Present, non-Commission: John Byrne (ABA), Nick Caruso (Riggs), Allen Able (Price Waterhouse Coopers)"
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

Byrne is at the time Senior Counsel and Compliance Manager with the American Bankers Association.

Able represents Price Waterhouse Coopers.... "PricewaterhouseCoopers (or PwC) is the world's largest professional services firm."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PricewaterhouseCoopers#Politics_and_public_service

And Caruso evidently represents Riggs Bank!! But in what way? Who is this guy?...Because the bank, is the corrupt bank of the ruling elites who were using it to assist the hijacker patsies. Isn't that interesting? But should they be here at all considering they are involved in at least a passing way?  I mean how obvious can a cover up get? Don't they even care how this appears? Are they even being questioned or are they just giving advice?

"The panel noted that while the USPA doesn't have much specific to terrorism in it, it is generally perceived that way, particularly to bank management. As a result, it has bolstered compliance resources at the banks."
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

Bolstered compliance resources at the banks? Hey that just minded me of this article about how this Byrne guy left the ABA for a job at Bank of America.....can't blame a guy for going where "resources are being bolstered".

"John Byrne Joins Bank of America from ABA"
"Will play key Anti-Money Laundering role at bank"


"CHARLOTTE – Bank of America announced today the appointment of John J. Byrne to the position of Anti-Money Laundering Strategy Executive in the bank’s Compliance Risk Management Division."
http://newsroom.bankofamerica.com/index.php?s=press_releases&item=7095

I don't know who this Nick Caruso is that is representing Riggs, I'm wondering if it is in fact a David Caruso who was hired from the secret service shortly before this meeting to clean up Riggs...

"David Caruso
Chief Executive Officer"


"Prior to forming the Dominion Advisory Group in May 2005, David was the Executive Vice President, Compliance & Security of Riggs Bank NA. In 2003, he was hired to build a regulatory compliance, investigations, and security department in response to the 2003 enforcement actions against Riggs. David led the development and implementation of a Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)/AML program across all consumer, commercial, investment and international business lines. He was also responsible for reporting on the bank's efforts to resolve its regulatory challenges to the Board of Directors, senior examination and headquarters staff of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and Federal Reserve Bank, senior Department of Justice officials and the staff of several Congressional committees."

"David began his career as a Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service before being hired to manage the anti-money laundering and enhanced due diligence group at JP Morgan & Company."
http://www.dominion-advisors.com/company/leadership

I mean, how many Caruso's could there be at Riggs top management in 2004? Anyone know if Nick and David are two different people?

Remember this meeting with the 9/11 commission was 3/8/04.  Two months later this comes out....

Fed Orders Riggs to Take Corrective Measures

By Kathleen Day
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, May 14, 2004; 12:43 PM

Riggs Bank agreed yesterday to pay a record $25 million in civil penalties for what federal regulators called a "willful, systemic" violation of anti-money-laundering law.

Regulators said the bank failed to report, detect or even look for clearly suspicious transactions in accounts related to foreign embassies.

Riggs officials have acknowledged years of deficiencies in reporting to law enforcement hundreds of millions of dollars in suspicious financial transactions by foreign customers, particularly those connected with the embassies of Saudi Arabia and Equatorial Guinea.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, in a consent order yesterday, said Riggs also failed to identify or monitor such activities as a transfer of more than $1 million from an Equatorial Guinean account to a private investment company owned by the Riggs manager supervising the account. It also cited tens of millions of dollars in cash withdrawals and the writing of dozens of sequentially numbered cashier's checks on Saudi accounts.

Riggs agreed to the fines without admitting or denying guilt.

"The facts of this case demonstrate Riggs's systemic failure to comply with its obligations under the Bank Secrecy Act," FinCen director William J. Fox said in a prepared statement. He said the problems at Riggs are not typical of the banking industry, though some members of Congress have wondered if they are more widespread.

"The risks of that business became apparent after Sept. 11, when the FBI began combing the bank's records. In July, regulators had become so concerned about the bank's lack of controls that the comptroller issued a consent order, and in recent weeks the comptroller designated Riggs a "troubled institution." That means Riggs can make no management changes without the approval of the federal government."

"In addition to announcing Joe Allbritton's departure, Riggs has said it will give up most of its international banking business, which accounts for 23 percent of its $4.2 billion in deposits, by the end of September."

"The Allbritton family will continue to control 43 percent of the company's stock."

http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A27015-2004May14?language=printer

Here's a little more on this Bank that is "helping" the 9/11 commission......

"In 1909, Riggs' president formally presented to the U.S. Congress a plan for economic relief. Many financial reforms were implemented as a result of this plan, including the establishment of the Federal Reserve in 1913."

"A Saudi named Omar al-Bayoumi housed and opened bank accounts for two of the 9/11 hijackers. About two weeks after the assistance began, al-Bayoumi's wife began receiving monthly payments totaling tens of thousands of dollars from Princess Haifa bint Faisal, the wife of Saudi ambassador and Bush family confidant, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, through a Riggs bank account."

"Upon discovery of these transactions, the FBI began investigating the bank for possible money-laundering and terrorist financing. Although the FBI and later the 9/11 Commission ultimately stated that the money was not intentionally being routed to fund terrorists, investigators were surprised to see how lax the safeguards at Riggs Bank were. Several Saudi accounts were discovered to have financial improprieties, including a lack of required background checks and a consistent failure to alert regulators to large transactions, in violation of federal banking laws."

"Many of these transactions involved Prince Bandar personally, often transferring over $1 million at a time. According to British investigations on the Al Yamamah deal, reported by The Guardian, Bandar would have received over $ 1.5 billion in bribery from BAE Systems, laundered through the Riggs Bank"

"Riggs Bank was fined $25 million for violations of money-laundering laws. A long running Justice Department investigation was wrapped up quickly in Feb. 2005 with Riggs pleading guilty and paying a $16 million fine for violations for the U.S. Bank Secrecy Act after a Wall Street Journal article reported 12/31/04 that Riggs had extensive ties to the CIA, including that several bank officials held security clearances."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riggs_Bank

"The probe had started post 9/11 when most of the hijackers turned out to be Saudis and there were suspicions they might have been receiving funding via the Saudi embassy."

"Mr Caruso had never spoken before in detail before about the Saudi embassy accounts he was asked to look at in 2003 by Riggs Bank - bankers to Prince Bandar and his embassy in Washington."

"Mr Caruso confirmed to us that the accounts we were interested in had been used as a personal piggy bank by the Prince."
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/panorama/6718831.stm

"Riggs Bank in America was the banker to Prince Bandar and his embassy in Washington. Among its accounts was one in the name of the Saudi Ministry of Defence and Aviation."
http://www.wsws.org/articles/2008/apr2008/bae-a15.shtml

"Some of that money was traced to Omar al-Bayoumi, a resident of San Diego for a number of years."

"Al-Bayoumi told some people he was a student at San Diego State University, and others that he was a pilot for the Saudi national airline. Neither account was true."

"He did, however, work for Dallah Avco, an aviation-services company contracted to the Saudi Ministry of Defence and Aviation."
http://archives.tcm.ie/businesspost/2002/12/01/story734144528.asp

The FBI states that al-Bayoumi assisted the 9/11 hijackers that the CIA were monitoring, and is a Saudi Intelligence agent who introduces them to an FBI Informant who becomes their landlord.
http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php/topic,51281.msg450648.html#msg450648

Prince Bandar himself here admits Saudi Arabia were monitoring these hijackers "with precision".

"Speaking to the Arabic satellite network Al-Arabiya on Thursday, Bandar -- now Abdullah's national security adviser -- said Saudi intelligence was "actively following" most of the September 11, 2001, plotters "with precision."

"If U.S. security authorities had engaged their Saudi counterparts in a serious and credible manner, in my opinion, we would have avoided what happened," he said.
http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/11/01/saudiarabia.terrorism/index.html

Wouldn't it be interesting to see what Prince Bandar told them? His interview is one of the documents they  released. Bush says, that's his buddy, and therefor falls under "National Security". Here's what it says.....
"Pages: 3
ACCESS RESTRICTED
The item identified below has been withdrawn from this file:
Folder Title: Prince Bandar
Document Date: 10-07-2003
Document Type: Memo of Conversation"

http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-01177.pdf

"Dropping the account of a politically exposed person (PEP) can be an administrative burden for banks requiring thorough documentation to satisfy bank examiners."

"For instance, when Riggs Bank hired David Caruso in 2003 to head its beleaguered anti-money laundering compliance division, he made a decision to close over 100 PEP accounts."

"In 2003, Washington, D.C.-based Riggs Bank was slapped with a regulatory consent order and in the following year was fined $25 million for failing to report suspicious transactions made with accounts for governments and PEPs from several countries, including Saudi Arabia and Equatorial Guinea. Riggs was also found to be hiding accounts for Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. The bank’s regulatory woes led to the institution agreeing to sell itself to PNC Financial Services Group in 2004."

"That includes caution in closing an account, since closing it can tip off a PEP that he or she is being investigated and compromise a government investigation, said Lee. “[Also] to close [a PEP account] in such as way that the PEP knows that there have been SARs filed could be a government violation, so it can be tricky.”

"Lee recommends that a bank contact FinCEN and ask it to act as a liaison with law enforcement before closing the account. “The government may want the account to stay open so it knows what’s going on in the account.”
http://www.dominion-advisors.com/system/files/DA_Fortent-2007_05_08.pdf

"Administration officials reluctantly confirmed to NEWSWEEK that money had moved from Princess Haifa's account to al-Bayoumi, but they stressed that they do not know the purpose of the payments or whether any Saudi officials were even aware of them. "The facts are unclear, and there's no need to rush to judgment," said one administration official. In meetings with intelligence committee leaders, Vice President Dick Cheney, Attorney General John Ashcroft and others have adamantly rejected attempts to declassify the information, citing national-security concerns."

"Senate Intelligence Committee co-chairman Robert Graham of Florida, a Democrat, and Richard Shelby of Alabama, a Republican, believe that the FBI failed to fully investigate 9-11. The lawmakers suspect that the administration does not want to look too closely at Saudi connections to the hijackers."
http://cernigsnewshog.blogspot.com/2007/06/bandar-gate-usa-riggs-bank-connection.html

"Isikoff said the timing of the Riggs Bank payments, which began just a couple months after they arrived in the United States, has raised questions about whether Saudi government money found its way to the two hijackers."
http://edition.cnn.com/2002/US/11/23/saudi.fbi.911/index.html

In 1997 Riggs bought an interesting investment company....

"Chairman and CEO Jonathan Bush founded J. Bush & Company in 1970. Mr. Bush has longstanding family and professional ties to Connecticut. He serves on the Boards of Directors of the United Negro College Fund and Yale New Haven Hospital. Mr. Bush is the son of the late Senator Prescott Bush, and the brother of former President George Bush."

"J. Bush & Company, Inc., is headquartered in New Haven, Connecticut. Since 1997, J. Bush & Company has been an independent wholly owned subsidiary of Riggs Bank, the second oldest commercial bank in the nation."

"We currently require a minimum investment of $1 million. Our annual fees are based on a percentage of assets under management."
http://www.georgesinger.com/riggsbank/3investments/03_11_02__jbush.html

Oh and the head of the SEC at this time 2003-2004 was a fellow named William H. Donaldson, who was a fellow classmate of Jonathan Bush at Yale and.....

"Donaldson graduated with a bachelor's degree in American Studies from Yale University in 1953 and was a member of Skull & Bones."

"On February 28, 2003, investment banker William H. Donaldson became the 27th Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. He was nominated to the position by President George W. Bush on December 10, 2002."
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=William_H._Donaldson

But according to this 9/11 commission memorandum, that Riggs bank assisted them with.........

"9/11 hijackers"

"Each member of the panel was familiar with the 9/11 hijackers financial transactions and each has come to the conclusion that a better scrutiny of the financial transactions would not have resulted in discovering them
." page 3/4
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00018.pdf

That's a nice spin, but the facts of 9/11 are most if not all of the so called hijackers were under surveillance by the CIA, but the CIA has officially only admitted they were tracking two. Oh...and they "accidentally" let those two into the country. And they finally, supposedly, told the FBI about them in August a few weeks before 9/11. This is admitted in the Senate congress joint investigation. Also in the joint inquiry was this...

"The Chief of the FBI’s Financial Review Group – which had been only a section in the FBI’s White Collar Crime Unit before September 11-- and the Director of the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) both testified before the Joint Inquiry that, prior to September 11, they had capabilities to develop leads on terrorist suspects and link them to other terrorists and to terrorist funding sources."

"They both agreed that they would have been able to locate Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar in the United States in August 2001, if asked, through credit card and bank information. The use of these capabilities in the first weeks after September 11 enabled the FBI, with assistance from the Secret Service, to connect almost all of the 19 hijackers to each other very quickly by linking bank accounts, credit cards, debit cards, address checks, and telephones. Despite the existence of those capabilities, the FBI did not seek their assistance in the search for al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar in late August 2001."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf



"They both agreed that they would have been able to locate Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar in the United States in August 2001, if asked, through credit card and bank information."

And the 9/11 commission is trying to say they wouldn't have found these guys? They're spinning...no actually lieing .......trying to imply these terrorists weren't even known. They were, and they could have been easily found. They are covering this up disgracefully.

Re: Sabrosky's focus on Israel concerning 9/11
« Reply #100 on: April 25, 2010, 04:22:22 PM »
Let's take a look at another MFR the 9/11 commission has released, this one concerning al-Bayoumi and his links with the government of Saudi Arabia. They have a different take on this guy than the FBI documents released and the Senate and congress joint Inquiry, according to this 9/11 commission MFR, he's just a nice buffoon. The 9/11 commission states that the hijackers had no assistance from any government or government officials. This is another cover up the Commission was assigned.

If you don't like what the FBI is finding you might want to take the leader off the case and put him thousands of miles away ...let's say...Paris...and replace him with a yes man that will tell you what you want to hear. It looks like their own document says that he is not the expert that knows the details of this investigation........


<<redacted>> was an FCI agent prior to 9/11. Today he is working in counterintelligence again. Immediately after 9/11, the FBI took 9 FCI agents off the JTTF and assigned them to work Pentbom.

<<redacted>> was assigned to the Bayoumi team. He became the team leader when the head of the squad was reassigned as the Assistant Legat in Paris. When he took over as team leader, <<redacted>>sent a summary package to Ryan Plunkett in NY. <<redacted>> said he did not know a lot of the details of the investigation because he was mostly involved with managing the team. <<redacted>> took over the team in April 2002. He said that <<redacted>>would know more about Bayoumi than he did, and so would agents <<redacted and redacted>>.

<<redacted>> were the FBI agents who found Bayoumi's address in
England. They found this information through <<redacted>> who owns a <<redacted>> in downtown SanDiego and had Bayoumi's address.


<<redacted>>does not believe there is anything suspicious about Bayoumi. He stated that initial reports about Bayoumi  financing the hijackers' apartment in San Diego were not accurate. Moreover <<redacted>> said that Isamu Dyson was <<redacted>> and therefore his recollection is somewhat suspect. <<redacted>> believed the Joint Inquiry put far too much emphasis on Dyson's account of events.

<<redacted>> thought that Bayoumi tried to act like a "big shot", but he was nothing more than that. <<redacted>>said he has been working foreign counter-intelligence since 1997, and if Bayoumi was a <<redacted>> then he was the sloppiest <<reacted>> <<redacted>> had ever seen. <<redacted>> believed that Bayoumi might simply have tried to "juice up" his image with <<redacted>> but that was the extent of his work for <<redacted>>. <<redacted>> believed that the meeting at the Mediterranean restaurant was simply happenstance. Although we will likely never know what was discussed at the meeting at <<redacted>> just prior to Bayoumi running into the hijackers, <<redacted>> believed it was unlikely that Bayoumi received any instructions. <<redacted>> conceded that the discrepancy between the accounts of Bayoumi and Dyson as to whether they visited the King Fahad Mosque after meeting the hijackers could be significant, but he would be inclined to believe Bayoumi. <<redacted>>knew nothing about the reporting that Bayoumi told others he was traveling to Los Angelos that day to pick up visitors at the airport.

<<redacted>> did not think Bayoumi was very intelligent. He described him as a "flim-flam man."  I did not think that Bayoumi even knew that Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Midhar were connected to al Qaeda. He did not think it would be out of line for Bayoumi to have asked Modhar Abdullah for generic help for visitors, or that the hijackers may have approached  Bayoumi looking for help with housing in San Diego.
http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-00454.pdf

And yet, there are a bunch of FBI documents produced during the investigation that Bayoumi and his replacement Osama Basnan were both agents working for Saudi Arabia.

Here's one report, the title of which admits there are connections between the hijackers and the Saudi Arabian Government.....

Connections of San Diego PENTTBOMB Subjects
to the Government of Saudi Arabia

http://intelfiles.egoplex.com/2002-10-09-FBI-Saudi-Links-May-Be-Conflated.pdf

4.  Associations: Closely associated with <<redacted>>Ambassador Prince Bandar).

5. Telephonic Contacts: 27 calls between<<redacted>>Cell phone and the Saudi Embassy in WDC (4/2000 to 4/2002); eight calls between <<redacted>> cell phone and Princess Haifa's office (12/2000 to 412002); 17 calls from <<redacted>>home to the Saudi Consulate in LA (8/2002). Claims to have been in telephonic contact with King Fahd's grandson or great grandson.

That  was Osama Basnan they are describing who replaced Bayoumi...
Osama Basnan
http://www.historycommons.org/context.jsp?item=a101792basnanblindsheikh

now they are describing al-Bayoumi......

Background: Citizen of Saudi Arabia; DOB <<redacted>>entered the U.S. via Los Angeles in 1993 on a student visa, met with Flight #77 hijackers Nawaf A!-Hazmi and Khalid AMihdhar in L.A. in January 2000 just after their arrival; invited Al-Hazmi and AI-Mihdhar to San Diego; arranged an apartment for the hijackers in his complex, occasionally paid rent on the hijacker's apartment, hosted a party/reception for them and cosigned their apartment lease as guarantor Detained and interviewed for seven days <<redacted>>.http://intelfiles.egoplex.com/2002-10-09-FBI-Saudi-Links-May-Be-Conflated.pdf

Let's take a closer look at this.....5. Telephonic Contacts: 27 calls between<<redacted>>Cell phone and the Saudi Embassy in WDC (4/2000 to 4/2002); eight calls between <<redacted>> cell phone and Princess Haifa's office (12/2000 to 412002); 17 calls from <<redacted>>home to the Saudi Consulate in LA (8/2002). Claims to have been in telephonic contact with King Fahd's grandson or great grandson.

Who is Princess Haifa? She is the wife of Prince Bandar, and her brother was head of Saudi Intelligence. Here you can watch Prince Bandar himself confess, I mean admit, that Saudi Arabia Intelligence were tracking all the 9/11 "plotters" with precision.

http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/11/01/saudiarabia.terrorism/index.html#cnnSTCVideo

Bandar -- now Abdullah's national security adviser -- said Saudi intelligence was "actively following" most of the September 11, 2001, plotters "with precision."
http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/meast/11/01/saudiarabia.terrorism/index.html

These guys were working with a so called FBI Informant. And so who was that "FBI" informant really working for? Saudi Intelligence or CIA? According to Bush it's no ones business.

"The Administration has to date objected to the Inquiry’s efforts to interview the informant in order to attempt to resolve those inconsistencies. The Administration also would not agree to allow the FBI to serve a Committee subpoena and deposition notice on the informant. Instead, written interrogatories from the Joint Inquiry were, at the suggestion of the FBI, provided to the informant. Through an attorney, the informant has declined to respond to those interrogatories and has indicated that, if subpoenaed, the informant would request a grant of immunity prior to testifying."
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/fullreport_errata.pdf

And what was that informants FBI handler working on at the time? He was trying to tell his bosses about that money flow from the Saudi Arabian embassy evidently........

"Government officials told U.S. News that Butler disclosed that he had been monitoring a flow of Saudi Arabian money that wound up in the hands of two of the 9/11 hijackers. The two men had rented a room from a man Butler had used as a confidential informant, the sources say. According to officials familiar with his account, Butler said that he had alerted his superiors about the money flows but the warning went nowhere. "Butler is claiming ... that people [in the FBI] didn't follow up," says a congressional source. Adds another: "He saw a pattern, a trail, and he told his supervisors, but it ended there."[/i]
http://www.usnews.com/usnews/news/features/saudi_021129.htm

We can prove the CIA was also aware of all the hijackers but since they will admit only being aware of these two I'll just use these two as examples of how they kept this information for themselves in order to keep tabs on what they were up to.

This according to the Senate Congress joint inquiry....

"The CIA and NSA had sufficient information available concerning future
hijackers al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi to connect them to Usama Bin Ladin, the East Africa embassy bombings, and the USS Cole attack by late 2000, and there were at least three different occasions when these individuals should have been placed on the State Department’s TIPOFF watchlist and the INS and Customs watchlists. Nonetheless, this was not done, nor was the FBI notified of their potential presence in the United States until late August 2001."


"It was not until September 11, 2001 that the Los Angeles FBI field office was asked to conduct a search. Other FBI offices with potentially useful informants, such as San Diego, were not notified prior to September 11."

Neither was INS asked by the FBI to use means available to it, including a search of the Law Enforcement Support Center’s database, to locate al-Mihdhar and al-Hazmi when the FBI was looking for them in the United States in August 2001. INS and FAA officials who testified at the Joint Inquiry’s October 1, 2002 hearing asserted that their agencies might have been able to assist the FBI in locating the two if the FBI had told them of the purpose and importance of the search.
http://www.gpoaccess.gov/serialset/creports/pdf/part1.pdf

And then there is this document from the inquiry....


"Discussion: By early January 2000, CIA knew al-Mihdar's full name and that it was likely Nawaf's last name was al-hazmi, knew that they had attended what was believed to be a gathering of al-Qaida associates in Malaysia, was aware that they had been traveling together, and had documents indicating that al-mihdhar held a U.S. B-1B-2 multiple entry visa that would allow him to travel to and from the United States until April 6, 2000. CIA arranged surveillance of the meeting and the DCI was kept informed as the operation progressed."

"Despite having all this information and despite the republication of CTC guidance regarding watchlisting procedures in December 1999, CIA did not add the names of these two individuals to the State Department, INS, and U.S. Customs Service watchlists that are used to deny individuals entry into the United States. The weight of the record also suggests that, despite providing the FBI with other, less critical, information about the Malaysia meeting, the CIA did not advise the FBI about al-Mihdhar's U.S. visa and the very real possibility that he would travel to the United States. The CIA stated its belief that the visa information was sent to the FBI and produced a cable indicating that this had been done."

The FBI, for its part, had no record the visa information was received.
http://intelfiles.egoplex.com/911project/jci-midhar-hazmi.pdf

Maybe the CIA was deliberately keeping info from the FBI in order to keep their little secret surveillance of the hijackers secret...there is no maybe about it. Here it is from the DCI.....his own mouth admitting it.....

...........The DCI told the Joint Inquiry:
      "We had at that point the level of detail needed to watchlist al-Mihdhar- that is, to nominate him to the State Department for refusal of entry into the U.S. or deny him another visa. Our officers remained focused on the surveillance operation and did not do so."

« Reply #101 on: April 25, 2010, 04:23:10 PM »
Here's one of the BIGGEST smoking guns of 9/11, thanks to the FBI and FOIA
http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20080216195228169

* Around 10:00 a.m. on the morning of 9/11, a housekeeper at the Park Inn in Boston went to clean the room that hijackers Wail and Waleed Alshehri used the night before. She was confronted by a foreign male who told her that someone was still sleeping in the room and that she should come back around 1:00 p.m. The FBI was obviously puzzled by this, as the FBI’s timeline entry for this event ends with five question marks.

 * Some credit cards used by the hijackers were still used in the US after 9/11. For instance, a credit card jointly owned by Mohamed Atta and Marwan Alshehhi was used twice on September 15. This helps confirm news reports from late 2001 that hijacker credit cards were used on the East Coast as late as early October 2001. At the time, a government official said that while some of the cards might have been stolen, “We believe there are additional people out there” who helped the hijackers.

* Security camera footage obtained by the FBI after 9/11 indicated that Khalid Almihdhar and possibly Salem Alhazmi cased Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C., the evening before 9/11. This fits the account of a security guard , related in Unsafe at Any Altitude by Joe and Susan Trento, who independently claimed to have seen two hijackers, Salem’s brother Nawaf and Marwan Alshehhi, casing Dulles Airport the night before 9/11. This guard claims the two hijackers were part of a group of five men, three of whom were dressed in United Airlines ramp worker uniforms, that behaved suspiciously. Despite a lawsuit by 9/11 victims’ relatives against United Airlines and others for negligence, the US government has never revealed the existence of this video footage which might support claims that the hijackers had inside help.

* New evidence suggests that some of the hijackers were assisted by employees of the Saudi government. It has previously been reported that Omar al-Bayoumi, a Saudi who was paid by the Saudi government despite not doing any work, assisted hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi when they first moved to the US. The FBI timeline shows that when these two hijackers moved into their first San Diego apartment, they indicated that they had been living with Bayoumi in the apartment next door for the previous two weeks. In fact, they had been with him in that apartment since January 15, 2000, the very day they first flew into the US, arriving in Los Angeles. The timeline also reveals that hijacker Hani Hanjour was seen in Bayoumi’s apartment.

* The new book The Commission by New York Times reporter Philip Shenon published last week further reveals that Bayoumi had close ties to Fahad al-Thumairy, a radical imam working in the Saudi consulate in Los Angeles. For instance, Bayoumi frequently called al-Thumairy while living next door to the two hijackers, and also frequently called the Saudi embassy in Washington, D.C. The book also reveals that the 9/11 Commission was aware of “explosive” revelations about the ties between Bayoumi, Thumairy, and the two hijackers, but the commission’s final report omitted “virtually all of the most serious allegations against the Saudis,” due to diplomatic considerations. Now, thanks to this FBI timeline, we are discovering more of this suppressed evidence relating to Saudi Arabia.

* The FBI timeline shows other intriguing hints that the hijackers had associates in the US. For instance, on September 8, 2001, hijackers Majed Moqed and Hani Hanjour went to a bank with an unnamed Middle Eastern male. This man presented a Pennsylvania driver’s license for identification, but none of the 9/11 hijackers have been reported to have a driver’s license from that state. There is also a highly redacted section hinting that a woman in Laurel, Maryland, was helping Middle Eastern men and may have had links to hijackers Mohamed Atta and Ziad Jarrah.

* Several months ago, the London Times reported on an al-Qaeda leader imprisoned in Turkey named Luai Sakra. Sakra claims to have trained six of the hijackers in Turkey, including Satam Al Suqami. The FBI’s timeline supports his account, because Al Suqami’s passport record indicates he spent much of his time between late September 2000 and early April 2001 in Turkey. Furthermore, Sakra claimed that Al Suqami was one of the hijacker leaders, and not just another “muscle” hijacker as US investigators have alleged. The FBI’s timeline supports this, because it shows that Al Suqami was frequently on the move from 1998 onwards, flying to Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Iran, Malaysia, as well as Turkey, and he travelled to most of these countries more than once. This is particularly important because contributors to the History Commons have put together evidence suggesting that Sakra was a CIA asset before 9/11, which would suggest that Al Suqami and other hijackers were actually trained by a CIA asset.

FORGET WTC7! THIS IS HUUUUUGGGGE

Hijackers having inside help at the airports? Their credit cards being used AFTER 9/11?
Hijackers having men inside their hotel rooms as they were in the air?

How come more truthers dont talk about this? Hell how can anyone buy the official story after seeing this?

« Reply #102 on: April 25, 2010, 04:23:55 PM »
I don't believe any of this was ever reported on, which means it was successfully kept from the press, and it seems to be news worthy, I'd never heard of any of this until seeing this recently released folder from the 9/11 commission files.

Here is the folder on Intervia......

http://www.scribd.com/doc/16803340/T7-B21-Intervia-Fdr-Entire-Contents-Pakistani-Travel-Agency-Booked-7-AA-11-OneWay-NoShows-on-911-at-4am-And-Withdrawal-Notice

Actually I believe the correct spelling is Interavia (it's spelled both ways in reports)

Read the files yourself, and see if you come to a different take on what is in this folder. From the FBI files (CIA and NSA files non existant or withdrawn).........

"FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
09/15/2001
"As part of her employment Emley was reviewing booking records and discovered that, on September 11, 2001, a company had booked a number of seats on American Airlines Flight 11. Interavia Pakistan, Ltd, (IPL) Karachi, Pakistan, had booked 7 seats on AA flight 11, bound from Boston to Los Angeles. The reservation had been made at 9:03 GMT
.<<edit:--that is 4:03 AM NY Time, just a few hours before the hijackings>>

reservations were made in a block of 4 and a block of 3 in the following names: Mr. K. Cooper,  Mrs. S. Cooper, Ms. A. Cooper,  Ms. P. Cooper....  Ms. 0. Noris, Ms. E. Noris, Ms. W. Noris. At the same time reservations for the listed subjects were also made on Trans World Airlines (TWA) flight 342, bound from Los Angeles to St. Louis. Both sets of reservations were made for flights on September 11, 2001. AA flight 11 was scheduled to depart at 7:45 a.m. eastern standard time....TWA flight 342 was scheduled  to depart at at 7:55 pacific standard time."

"In reviewing the record Emley realized that it was impossible for the passengers to use both reservations and became suspicious. Emley compared the reservations to a list of passengers who died on AA flight 11 which had been posted on the CNN web site. Emley was unable to locate the passengers listed on the reservations on the CNN list. Emley advised since the reservations are made via the Internet that they could be made from any computer with an Internet connection. All that would be needed is IPL's user ID and password. In addition Worldspan records indicated that no tickets were issued by IPL for the reservations and they were not paid for in advance. Records did indicate that AA had confirmed both reservations, AA record locater DUMSJF. Emley also advised the names on the reservations could be changed by any AA ticket agent. This is not the normal practice but does happen from time to time. In addition any individual with access to the AA ticketing system and knowledge of its use could change the reservations prior to the passengers arrival at the ticket counter. Worldspan does not receive information from the airlines which would indicate if a passenger took a particular flight or if changes to the reservation are made through the airline. In researching the reservation history of IPL Emley discovered that they have been a customer for approximately one year. Records indicate that IPL always makes same day reservations. Emley discovered that most flight reservations made by IPL are within 12 hours or less of the flight. In addition IPL normally makes reservations once daily and only logs on to the site for about thirty minutes. Emley provided information regarding the flights booked by IPL for September 15, 2001. Most of the flights booked had circuitous or conflicting times and/or routes. None of the flights booked for September 15, 2001 originated in North America."

This travel Agency in Karachi Pakistan is making suspicious reservations. But it was still going on after Sept 11, so there could be a non nefarious reason for it, however it can't be ignored. And in fact in the documents the agency is listed as a suspect.

But in other documents it says the tickets were actually purchased, not just reservations, but purchases made for flight 11.......

"AFTER SEPT 11 CRASHES SHE DID COMPUTER SEARCH AND FOUND THAT A COMPANY INTERAVIA-PAKISTAN LTD, BASED IN KARACHI PURCHASED TICKETS THE NIGHT BEFORE SCHEDULED FLIGHTS. USUALLY THE NAMES ARE COOPER AND NORRIS. ON FLIGHT AA11, INTERVIA PURCHASED 4 TICKETS IN NAME OF NORRIS, 3 IN COOPER. THERE ARE SEVERAL INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS IN BOUND TODAY WHERE INTERVIA PURCHASED TICKETS. INFO PASSED TO KC COMMAND POST."

Because of this...."Worldspan does not receive information from the airlines which would indicate if a passenger took a particular flight or if changes to the reservation are made through the airline." I think American Airlines would have better information on wether a ticket purchase was actually made or any other changes.

From FBI Documents...
"PENTTBOMB; MAJOR CASE #182
Synopsis: Provide information regarding suspicious airline reservation activity of Interavia Pakistan, Ltd., a travel agency located in Karachi, Pakistan. Lead Control #KC 670."


"On September 22, 2001 Emley contacted KCD and advised IPL placed a number of airline reservations via the Worldspan web in The manner in which the reservations were made was similar to the reservations placed on September 11, 2001 and prior activity of IPL. A single group of passengers was booked on multiple flights with conflicting departure times and cities."

By the way, there are some interesting facts pertaining to the passenger loads on the planes. Because of these reservations, a theory presented was maybe they were doing that to make a light aircraft load in order to make it easier to hijack, but that was ruled out quickly due to this not being the case with the other flights, but they did check to see if the loads were lighter than usual, and the answer was no. So some of you might not like it, but this is good to know because a good debunker will use this against you if you claim the passenger load was way to light, this also shows how they considered this agency and it's strange bookings a suspect and worthy of investigation, they, at the least, would want to know what this company is doing this for.....

"Details: During the early stages of this investigation, questions arose concerning the relatively low number of persons known to be aboard American Airlines (AA) flights 11 and 77 on 09/11/2001. One of the theories proposed was the suspected hijackers and/or unknown associates purchased multiple tickets on the flights in an attempt to ensure the number of passengers aboard each flight remained tactically manageable. A second, and tactically similar theory, was the suspected hijackers specifically chose AA flights 11 and 77 on 09/11/2001 knowing the passenger load was typically low. As a result, the Dallas Division (Dallas) tasked itself to determine: (1) if the passenger count on AA flights 11 and 77 on 09/11/2001 was within normal limits; (2) the number of persons who canceled."

"Dallas initially contacted AA to obtain the percentage of capacity for AA flights 11 and 77 on all Tuesday mornings from 01/09/01 through 09/04/01 (passenger load). Upon receiving the data from AA, it was determined the average passenger load for AA flights 11 and 77 on Tuesdays was 38% and 26% respectively. It was further determined the average passenger load for AA flights 11 and 77 on 09/11/2001 was higher than normal at 53% and 38% respectively. Based on the foregoing information, it was not apparent the suspected hijackers booked multiple tickets as a tactical strategy."

"Information obtained from AA reservation records indicated 164 reservations made for AA flight 11 departing Boston, MA on 09/11/2001. Of the 164 reservations made, 65 persons canceled their reservations prior to departure, 82 persons were on board the aircraft, and 17 persons were no shows."

"Further review of the above-referenced records revealed K. Cooper, S. Cooper, A. Cooper, P. Cooper, E. Noris, 0. Noris and W. Noris all reserved seats on AA flight 11 through travel agency Intervia Pakistan (Private), Ltd. Standing alone, the fact seven (7) persons all made travel reservations through the same travel agency is not unusual. In the instant case, however, the following travel inconsistencies /necessarily require the need for further inquiry:
(1) All seven (7) person's reservations were made under the same AA Personal Name Record (PNR);
2) All seven (7) persons have a link to a relevant country in that the travel agency is located in Pakistan;
(3) All seven (7) persons failed to show up for AA flight 11 on 09/11/2001;
(4) In violation of standard AA policy, no first names were given for any of the seven (7) persons making the reservations;
(5) Against the standard AA practice, no information relating to credit cards, addresses, or telephone numbers is contained in the PNR for any of the seven individuals;
(6) The tickets reserved show no return flight (i.e., one way travel);
(7) No previous travel history exists on AA for any of the seven (7) individuals
(8   Of the seven (7) persons making reservations, three (3) hold the last name of Noris and four (4) hold the last name of Cooper. None of the said names being normally associated with Pakistan."


"Set Lead 7: ISLAMABAD AT KARACHI, PAKISTAN Conduct logical investigation to obtain additional identifying information on K. Cooper, S. Cooper, A. Cooper, P. Cooper, E. Noris, 0. Noris and W. Noris. Referenced individuals are believed to have made reservations through Intervia Pakistan (Private), Ltd., on American Airlines flight 11, departing Boston, MA on 09/11/2001. None of the seven (7) referenced individuals showed up for the flight. Assess the possibility the referenced travel agency or employees/officials thereof may, have been involved in, or have had knowledge of, the criminal conspiracy occurring on 09/11/2001, and/or other future acts."

It looks to me like the NSA is keeping information on this to themselves, they sure didn't offer anything.....

SOooooooo? What happened? What did they find? That's what the 9/11 commission asked. And the answer seems to be............ huh? Intervia? What's that?

From the very first document, a hand written note of 9/11 commission:

"Topic: Suspicious Booking on AA #11, made by a travel agency in Karachi Pakistan at 4:00AM 9/11 for 7 people, they were no shows.
1/11/2004  Tom Eldridge called CIA, they checked Intervia travel agency. Nothing Found.
1/11/2004 Tom E. is sending Doc request of Intervia to NSA
3/1/04- Meeting w/ Front office. PZ assigned Team Dieter and 1(A) to look into what happened w/ the investigation of this agency."

http://www.scribd.com/doc/16803340/T7-B21-Intervia-Fdr-Entire-Contents-Pakistani-Travel-Agency-Booked-7-AA-11-OneWay-NoShows-on-911-at-4am-And-Withdrawal-Notice

The Front Office.....
"The front office consisted of Philip Zelikow, Executive Director; Christopher A. Kohm, Deputy Executive Director; Daniel Marcus, General Counsel and Steven M. Dunne, Deputy General Counsel. The front office dealt not only with administrative issues involving the structure and personnel of the commission, they also provided guidance to the commissioners on policy, strategy, and legal issues."
http://www.archives.gov/legislative/research/9-11/commission-series.html

1(A) would be....
"Team 1A split from Team 1 to focus on al Qaeda's role in the organization of the 9/11 Attacks. These files contain intelligence cables and reports; FBI 302s; memos and prints from the Automated Case System; handwritten notes of interviews; briefings; and foreign trips; drafts of statements and final report chapters; correspondence with agencies including document and briefing requests; memorandum for the record of interview including with FBI field office personnel and agents involved with the PENTTBOM investigation;"
http://www.archives.gov/legislative/research/9-11/commission-series.html

PZ would be Philip Zelikow, the executive Director running the commission and Dieter would be Dieter Snell. It's interesting that Snell was assigned to look into this investigation. According to Shennons book "The Commission" it was Snell even more than Zelikow that wanted the Saudi roll in 9/11 minimized as much as possible, and that was kept quite in the report. See pages 398-399 of the Book.......

http://www.amazon.com/Commission-Uncensored-History-11-Investigation/dp/0446580759#

This also was kept quite, even more so.  I never even heard of this stuff until seeing this folder.

Later another hand written note from the commission says this...

"-No evidence that the FBI tasked either itself or the CIA to look at Intervia.
-No Indication that the Chicago Field Office did a study of the No Shows."

http://www.scribd.com/doc/16803340/T7-B21-Intervia-Fdr-Entire-Contents-Pakistani-Travel-Agency-Booked-7-AA-11-OneWay-NoShows-on-911-at-4am-And-Withdrawal-Notice

Am I supposed to believe that the investigation stopped suddenly and ended for no reason? Maybe it ended for a good reason. But it ended. Why? What was found? There is a problem if the CIA is saying in 2004 that they have nothing on Intervia. How could that be if there was an investigation? It seems as if this investigation was either stopped (for some reason) or the results of it are not to be produced for some reason.
 
The little I could find on Interavia Pakistan Ltd....

"Registered Office Address: BEAUFORT BUILDING, I.I.CHUNDROGAR ROAD, KARACHI

CEO NAME: TARIQ MUMTAZ

CEO ADDRESS: 19/A, 9TH CENTRAL STREET, DEFENCE HOUSING AUTHORITY, KARACHI"
http://www.pakboi.gov.pk/pak/xdetail.asp?ComID=14138

Is it to much to ask the commission to tell us what they found? I'm guessing the answer is "we don't know, they wouldn't tell us". Which would make them worthless, and that certainly wouldn't be the case............would it?
 
What am I to make of this hand written note....

"No evidence that the FBI tasked either itself or the CIA to look at Intervia."
http://www.scribd.com/doc/16803340/T7-B21-Intervia-Fdr-Entire-Contents-Pakistani-Travel-Agency-Booked-7-AA-11-OneWay-NoShows-on-911-at-4am-And-Withdrawal-Notice

How could this be? CIA director Tenet is a national hero who was awarded the presidential medal of freedom award  ::) and FBI Director Mueller who's first day on the job was Sept 4, solved 9/11 in a few hours.   ::) If this is true....-"No evidence that the FBI tasked either itself or the CIA to look at Intervia." , and no investigation was done, it's incompetence to the utmost extreme, or it was deliberately stopped for some reason.

Just a few months after this note....
"3/1/04- Meeting w/ Front office. PZ assigned Team Dieter and 1(A) to look into what happened w/ the investigation of this agency."

The Commission was closed. According to their assignment this should not be another unanswered question.....

"The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9-11 Commission), an independent, bipartisan commission created by congressional legislation and the signature of President George W. Bush in late 2002, is chartered to prepare a full and complete account of the circumstances surrounding the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, including preparedness for and the immediate response to the attacks."

"On July 22, 2004 the Commission released its public report"
http://www.9-11commission.gov/

Perhaps there is an innocent answer for all this, but these released notes just bring more questions, there are no answers in this folder.

Re: Sabrosky's focus on Israel concerning 9/11
« Reply #103 on: April 25, 2010, 04:26:22 PM »
Released from the 9-11 Commission records....

In October 2001, the respected and well informal French weekly newspaper "Le. Canard Enchains" reported in an article titled "DGSE knew a lot about Bin Laden" that among several intelligence memos passed to the CIA and the FBI by the French DGSE (Direction Generalc de la Securitc Exterieure, French external intelligence agency), was a classified report dated January 5, 2001 titled "Projects of plane hijackings by radical Islamists that could affect American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Air France, Lufthansa".

Our investigation confirmed the existence of this intelligence report and the fact that these warnings were shared with US intelligence. The Deputy Director of the DGSE Counterterrorism unit confirmed to me that this memo, as many others, was passed to their US counterparts, the CIA and the FBI. I understood the transmission of these reports occurred within days after they were issued by the DGSE.

We have also acquired a classified DGSE "Summary Report" titled "Al-Qaida, vector of action for Usama Bin Laden" dated July 12, 2001 (Internal DGSE reference number 00280/GT). This report, classified "Confidential Defense" contains a hand-written reference to the January 5, 2001 report. The July 12, 2001 classified report notes that the Al-Qaida network "could be used to obtain the release of Islamist leaders currently detained or prosecuted abroad (including Sheikh Omar Abdcrrahmanc, detained in the United States for his participation in the World Trade Center bombing)". This information is consistent with projects detailed in the August 6, 2001 PDB (paragraph 9, page I). The July 2001 report is part of the set of memos that were passed to US intelligence. This report was passed to the CIA and FBI within days after it was issued.

Another intelligence warning was given to the United States by the French intelligence in the case of the Zacarias Moussaoui in August 2001. I testified before the Joint Inquiry Committee of the US Congress in June 2002 and gave a detailed account of the timing and content of the information passed by the French intelligence (DST, Direction dc la Surveillance du Tcniloire, internal intelligence service in charge of counterterrorism) after the arrest of Moussaoui by the INS on August 16, 2001. Responding to a request for information, the French DST passed "unambiguous" intelligence to the United States on August 22, 2001, through the FBI legal Attache in Paris. According to a direct witness and high ranking member of the DST (name of whom was given to the Committee), information included Moussaoui trainings in Afghanistan in 1998 and 2000 in a camp controlled by Al-Qaida and contacts with Al-Qaida leaders in Europe. It also included a twenty-page interrogation of his brother and visa details. Despite receipt of this information, the FBI legal counsel retracted a request for a search warrant of Moussaoui's belongings (FISA special surveillance measures) on the ground that information on his involvement in terrorism was "insufficient" or "inadmissible". I've also informed the Joint Inquiry Committee that several communications occurred between the DST and the FBI on Moussaoui after the first transmission and prior to 9/11. According to the DST source, the French intelligence "didn't understand" at that lime why the FBI couldn't act upon that situation given the consistent evidence provided by them.

Our investigation has further determined that the use of airplanes as weapons has been widely known for years within the intelligence community in the United States, France and other countries, as a potential strategy to be carried out by Usama Bin laden and his terrorist network. This trend emerged after the Bojinka plan was uncovered in the Philippines in 1995, details of which appear in numerous reports from the CIA and the FBI after that date.

Add this to the pile.....
Yet another flight instructor telling how Hani Hanjour was a terrible pilot.....


I first flew with Hani Hanjour on 21 May 1998. I instructed him for about four months, during that time I knew him only professionally, he was generally quiet and his English was poor. He told me that he was single, and that he went to the mosque in Phoenix every Friday. He was not well educated nor was he very intelligent. His general attitude was unlike most European and American students who invariably are concerned about the cost of their training and wish to complete their training as quickly as possible. For these reasons most western students are highly motivated. Hani Hanjour was not a motivated student. And, whilst he did not seem rich, he did not seem concerned at the cost of his training.

As a person I found Hani Hanjour fairly easy to get along with. He smiled often and was easy going. I did not think that he was the type of person to become an airline pilot. He was a follower and not a leader, had few opinions of his own and had, in my view, almost no initiative. Consequently I very seriously doubt that he had  any organizational or leadership role in the events of September 11th.

As a pilot, Hani Hanjour was very poor. His knowledge of the academic
side of training was weak, his flying skills were marginal but most significantly his judgment was very poor. He told me about one flight, in which he had almost run out of fuel while on a solo cross-country. What struck me most when he was recounting this story was that he did not seem to care. To most pilots such an event would teach them a lesson they would never forget, for Hani Hanjour it seemed mildly amusing. On one occasion when Hani Hanjour and I were about to fly I double checked the fuel (as all pilots and flight instructors always do prior to a flight) and noticed that there was almost no fuel; Hani Hanjour was ready to fly. I questioned him about the lack of fuel and again he seemed mildly amused rather than appalled by his possibly life-threatening mistake (again).


In retrospect, Hani Hanjour was not someone cut out to be a pilot. He had
no motivation, a poor understanding of the basic principles of aviation and poor judgment combined with poor technical skills. His personality was weak and I have no doubt that he could have been easily persuaded to do almost anything - clearly he was.

I don't know how I missed this one.  I don't think that it's a stretch that this was another motive for the global crime syndicate to arrange for anti-terror investigator John O'Neill's murder.


Summary of Michael Riconosciuto's Information
Presented in Terrorism Cover Up in America

    By Ted Gunderson
    http://educate-yourself.org/tg/TCUriconosciutosummary.shtml
    Sept. 30, 2003

    Michael Riconosciuto, an inmate at the FCI in Allenwood, Pennsylvania, who has contacts in the Middle East, informed this reporter that in March 2001 (well prior to September 11), he informed the FBI of the identity of the organizer of certain terrorist activities in the United States, the identities of those who furnished false identification to the terrorists, an aviation company with which the terrorists were dealing, information concerning the smuggling of shoulder-fired missiles into the United States, and other sensitive matters. The FBI agent who interviewed Riconosciuto later admitted that he did not follow up on any of this information. According to Riconosciuto, if properLy investigated, the events of 911 may not have occurred. Riconosciuto also made a confidential source inside the terrorist group available to the FBI. When interviewed by the FBI, this person reportedly was threatened with prosecution and deported. Riconosciuto claimed that the same FBI agent later told him that he (Riconosciuto) was wasting his time, that he was a conspiracy theorist seeking publicity, that he did not investigate Riconosciuto's information, and threatened him with prosecution

    Details

    Michael J. Riconosciuto, who has been in federal custody since 1991, furnished the following information to Ted Gunderson on January 3,4, and 5, 2003:

    1. He has been active in the intelligence community for years, and has a number of contacts in the Middle East, including individuals who have been, or are now actively involved, with AI Qaeda, the Islamic Jihad (Committee), and the International Islamic Front

    2. In February 2000, he learned that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) were interested in interviewing him by telephone. At the time, Riconosciuto was at the FCI in Coleman, Florida. As soon as he agreed to the interview, he was told by a Bureau of Prisons (BOP) staff member that he should not have agreed to the interview, was threatened by staff and other inmates, and told not to cooperate with the RCMP and a homicide detective from Hercules, California, who was working with the RCMP. The subject of the interview related to the murder of one of Riconosciuto's friends, and national security issues in the U.S and Canada. The BOP staff threatened him with administrative reprimands.

    3. In spite of the threats, Riconosciuto agreed to the interview on February 7,2000. Within one hour following the interview, he was charged with a disciplinary infraction.

    4. This infraction was expunged at a BOP hearing on February 11,2000.

    5. Within an hour of this hearing, the FBI charged Riconosciuto with solicitation of murder; the charge relating to the expunged incident.

    6. Because of this allegation, Riconosciuto was placed in solitary confinement for several months.

    7. Upon his return to the general prison population, Riconosciuto was transferred to the FCI Allenwood, Pennsylvania, with the reputation of being a "threat" to BOP staff members.

    8. On February 5, 2001, Riconosciuto wrote a certified letter (Exhibit A) to his attorney, Don Bailey, that he had contact with someone in an Islamic group called the "Base" (AI Qaeda), and that said group was currently in preparation for an attack in the United States, but would not divulge specific details unless the U.S. Government granted immunity from prosecution to his sources. In this letter, Riconosciuto also stated that he had an inside source who could furnish information concerning the handling of false IDs and passports for the group.

    9. On February 13, 2001, Riconosciuto sent a certified letter (Exhibit B) to Congressman Bryan Baird (D- W A), in an effort to expedite the reporting of his information to the appropriate authorities. Note in the referenced exhibit the urgency of the matter according to Riconosciuto, and his identification of sources (one of which has been intentionally blanked by this reportei}

    10. On February 19,2001, Louis Buffardi, a second attorney of Riconosciuto's, wrote to Secretary of State Colin Powell, with a cc to Attorney General John Ashcroft (Exhibit C), to the effect that he had a client with information concerning an imminent terrorist attack in the United States, and Buffardi asked that someone other than the FBI obtain the details from his client.

    11. I. On February 20, 200 I, Riconosciuto filed BOP Form 148 (Exhibit D), for use of a private telephone to handle sensitive conversations relating to matters mentioned in 8, 9, and 10, above. Riconosciuto informed this reporter that among his. reasons for this request was also the fact that he had a 30-hour "window" relati_g to the shipment of 37 Soviet-made missiles (StreIa-3 and Igla-9) that had been shipped from Bulgaria to Colombia, and thence, to Canada, destined for Thabet Aviation in Quebec City. He further informed this reporter that attorney Buffardi passed this information to the FBI and U.S. Attorney in Chicago, Illinois.

    12. Once he received his private telephone, Riconosciuto told this reporter that he had conversations concerning the afore-mentioned topics with, among others, John O'Neill, former FBI terrorist expert in charge of security for the World Trade Center. Others with whom Riconosciuto talked included:

    13. On an unrecalled day in March 2001, Riconosciuto was visited by Special Agent (SA) Keith Cutri of the Williamsport, Pennsylvania, FBI resident agency.

    14. Riconosciuto furnished SA Cutri with the identification of an individual in New Jersey (unidentified herein to eliminate damage or complications to future official investigations) who:

        a. Was coordinating forthcoming terrorist attacks on the United States.
        b. Had information on the movement of Soviet-made shoulder-fired missiles into the United States.
        c. Was coordinating forthcoming skyjackings.
        d. Was coordinating bombings and espionage.
        e. Knew the identities of "sleepers" in the United States and overseas.

    15. Riconosciuto also furnished SA Cutri with information on a false IDl ring in Montreal, Canada, and in New Jersey, and could furnish the exact false ID of 30 terrorists who had been chosen for actions inside the United States.

    16. Riconosciuto further told SA Cutri that the 37 Soviet-made missiles were being handled through Thabet Aviation in Quebec City, Canada, which also brokered old but serviceable aircraft (Swearingtons, DC-9s, 747s, and high-performance military) to be used in drug-running and future terrorist attacks in a so-called "40 minute" war scenario by using aircraft as flying "missiles".

    17. Riconosciuto further informed SA Cutri that terrorists were taking flight-training in various types of aircraft brokered by Thabet, and if given immunity for himself and his contacts, he would provide specific information where said training was taking place and the identities of the students involved.

    18. [blacked out area for the sanitized public report]

    19. In his discussion with SA Cutri, other than the immunity request, RicQnosciuto attached no other conditions to his possible future cooperation with the FBI.

    20. [blacked out ]

    21. In the period between his March 2001 interview by SA Cutri and September 13, 2001, Riconosciuto heard nothing from the FBI or any other federal agency.

    22. Riconosciuto was shocked by what happened on September 11, 2001, especially in view of the information he furnished to SA Cutri in March. In his opinion, if properly handled, 911 would not have happened.

    23. On September 13, 2001, SA Cutri and a second, unidentified FBI agent inter viewed Riconosciuto in the Legal Room of FCI Allenwood. In spite of what had just taken place in New York and Washington on September 11, and the information Riconosciuto had already volunteered in March,
    SA Cutri: posed the following questions and accusations to Michael Riconosciuto:

        a. Wanted to know why Riconosciuto was bothering the FBI and wasting its time.
        b. Accused Riconosciuto of seeking publicity.
        c. Accused Riconosciuto of being "anti-FBI' and "anti-government".
        d. Called Riconosciuto a "conspiracy theorist".
        e. Called Riconosciuto a "know-it-all",
        f. Called Riconosciuto a "hoaxer" and threatened him with prosecution.
        g. Stated that he discontinued inquiry into the information Riconosciuto gave him in March, 2001 because information Riconosciuto gave him about a staff member at FCI Coleman was untrue.
        h. Stated that Riconosciuto was still under investigation because of threats he made against a staff member at Coleman. Riconosciuto took this as a threat.

    24. In view of 23, above, Riconosciuto stated that he did not wish to continue this interview without the presence of his counsel, to which SA Cutri replied that as a prisoner, he did not have an absolute right to counsel, which Riconosciuto interpreted as another threat.

    26. [blacked out ]

    27. [blacked out]

    28. In the summer of 2002, Riconosciuto secured the assistance of Senator George Allen (R- VA) in an attempt to nail down the date in March 2001 on which he was interviewed for the first time by SA Cutri. Attached as Exhibit F is a copy of the FBI's official response. Note that while it confirms the September 13, 2001 interview, it "dances" around specific dates of any other interviews.

    29. In view of the above, on September 23, 2002, this reporter wrote a letter (Exhibit G) to Senator Allen, asking him to contact the FBI to determine the exact date that Riconosciuto was interviewed in March 2001, and whether or not this interview took place as a result of attorney Buffardi's letter to Secretary of State Powell.

    30. According to Riconosciuto as well as an independent source, following the letter referenced above, and without warrants, the FBI seized the computers and other items from persons who were in contact with Riconosciuto, but who are not professionally knowledgeable about "terrorism". The FBI also demanded all letters, documents, correspondence, books, etc., and also inquired about any "Arab" contacts of Riconosciuto's about whom they might be knowledgeable. They were also told that Riconosciuto and Ted Gunderson were making irresponsible statements about the terrorism "issue" and that any help given to Riconosciuto or Gunderson might have criminal consequences.

    31. It is this reporter's professional opinion that the possible purpose of such raids and seizures are part of a campaign to eliminate any trace or proof of official knowledge of the type claimed by Riconosciuto, with specific reference to his interview by SA Cutri in March 2001. This view is reinforced by President Bush's recent "go-ahead" to the formation of an official board of inquiry into the failings of U.S. intelligence that allowed 911 to happen.

Riconosciuto's Letter, The Smoking 'Howitzer' of 9-11?

Michael Riconosciuto's 2/5/2001 Letter Warning of Planned
Hijack Plane Attacks in the U.S. by Al Qaeda Terrorists

    [Editor's Note: This letter was sent U.S. certified mail (#7000 0600 0027 1175 1175) by Michael Riconosciuto, who is incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Allenwood, PA, .to his attorney, Don Bailey, on February 6, 2001, seven months before planes struck the twin towers of World Trade Center in New York City. The original four page letter was hand written by Riconosciuto and can be viewed at these links: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4 and certified proof of post mark. I typed the letter shown below without changing abbreviations, contractions, or misspelled words in order to match the original handwritten copy as accurately as possible. .Square bracketed items, "[ ]", are informational clarifications by me, Ken Adachi (or indicate blacked out words). Ted Gunderson included a copy of this handwritten letter as "Exhibit A" in a large multi page report ( Ted Gunderson 9-11 Terrorists' Report) presented to 155 U.S. Senators and members of Congress, to every congressional committee, to the Department of Justice, and to numerous members of the Executive Branch in Washington D.C. on January 7, 2003; two days after interviewing Michael Riconosciuto at FCI in Allenwood.

    On Feb.. 13, 2001, Riconosciuto sent a certified letter ("Exhibit B" in Gunderson's Report) to his congressman, Bryan Baird (D-WA), to expedite contact with appropriate authorities to report his intelligence information. Louis Buffardi, a second attorney working with Riconosciuto, sent a letter on February 19, 2001 to Secretary of State Colin Powell and Attorney General John Ashcroft ("Exhibit C" in Gunderson's Report) reporting that he had a client who possessed highly detailed information about an imminent terrorist attack to take place on the United States, but requested that some agency other than the FBI should debrief his client. On February 20, 2001, Riconosciuto requested from the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) ("Exhibit D") a private, unmonitored telephone line to convey sensitive information about 37 Soviet-made missiles being shipped from Bulgaria to Colombia and finally to Quebec City within a 30 hour 'window' of opportunity of interdiction. Attorney Louis Buffardi passed this same information along to the FBI and the US Attorney's Office in Chicago, Illinois, while Riconosciuto spoke directly over the phone with John O'Neill, former FBI terrorist expert in charge of security for the World Trade Center ( killed in the WTC attacks).

    On an unspecified date in March, 2001, Riconosciuto was paid a visit by FBI Special Agent Keith Cutri from the Williamsport, PA FBI office. Riconosciuto identified for Cutri an individual in New Jersey who: (1) was coordinating forthcoming terrorist attacks on the U.S.; (2) had information on the movement of Soviet-made shoulder-fired missiles coming into the U.S.; (3) was coordinating skyjacking operations, bombings, and espionage in the U.S.; and (4) knew the identity of "sleepers" in the U.S. and overseas. Riconosciuto also gave Cutri information about a false ID ring operating in Montreal and New Jersey and gave him the exact fake ID's of 30 terrorists who had been chosen for carrying out operations inside the United States. Riconosciuto told Special Agent Cutri that Thabet Aviation of Quebec City, Canada was brokering older D.C.-9's, 747's, and other high performance military aircraft that could be used for terrorist attacks and he knew the names of terrorists who were taking flight training in the US for those very types of aircraft. Riconosciuto indicated that Thabet Aviation was the company scheduled to receive the 37 Soviet-made, shoulder-fired missiles. Riconosciuto's only request of the FBI was immunity from government prosecution for himself and his informants. From the end of the interview with Cutri in March, 2001, until September 13, 2001, Riconosciuto did not hear one word from the FBI, Special Agent Keith Cutri, or any federal investigative agency.

    On September 13, 2001, two days after the attacks of Sept. 11, Cutri returned with another FBI agent to talk with Riconosciuto and accused Riconosciuto of being "anti-FBI"; "anti-government"; a "conspiracy theorist'; a "know-it-all"; a "hoaxer"; and a "publicity seeker" who wanted to "bother the FBI and waste its time". Cutri told Riconosciuto that he discounted his terrorist information because the info Riconosciuto had provided about a prison staff member at Coleman, Florida FCI was "untrue". He also warned Riconosciuto that he was under investigation by the FBI for "threats" made against that staff member at Coleman (this trumped up charge by prison officials at Coleman and the FBI was designed to intimidate Riconosciuto and sequester him in solitary confinement for 7 months. Riconosciuto was later acquitted of the charge at a BOP hearing).

    The stonewalling, obfuscations, non-response, denials, feigned ignorance, and threats emanating from the FBI, from the Justice Department, and from high government officials in both the Legislative and Executive branches following this Sept. 13 meeting between Michael Riconosciuto and the two FBI agents (including the non-reportage of Riconosciuto's dead-on warnings by major newspapers in the United States approached by Gunderson) leave no doubt that Ted's 9-11 Cover Up Report contains the most powerful documentation to date of the government's complicity and fore knowledge in the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Further details can be read from Ted Gunderson's full public report titled: Terrorism Cover up in America which will posted in its entirety at this web site and at www.tedgunderson.com . Ted's Summary of Michael Riconosciuto's information in the report is listed here. ..Ken Adachi]

    Posted Sept. 27, 2003

    2/5/2001

    Don,

    I have written to the editor of Insight magazine to request a copy of the Wackenhut letter, and the taped telephone conversation transcript. The Wackenhut letter makes reference to Dr. Harry Fair, describing me as a potential national resource because of certain of my technical abilities. Dr. Fair is the former head of tactical technology research for DARPA. At the time Dr. Fair made this characterization of me, he was in this position. This is a very strong statement for a govt. agency department head to go on record with. It is also significant that the govt. prevented this type of information from being in front of the jury in my case! The motion in liminal filed by the govt, and granted by the judge, contains some of the most bizarre legal reasoning I have ever encountered. The taped conversation was a telephone call I had with an FBI agent to make a pretrial proffer. One of the significant things about my pretrial proffer is that every single detail of it turned out to be true. The only fault in its accuracy is that my proffer was an understatement. Even as such, the US Attorney in charge of drug prosecutions stated that my pretrial proffer was, "a lot of garbage and delusional"! The US Attorney in charge of drug prosecutions actually testified at my trial, so these remarks are part of the actual trial record. My detailed and specific proffer was given almost five years prior to some of the parties I named were indicted on the same charges I outlined in my proffer.

    The material contained in my pretrial proffer (the Abell/Cali cartel connection), had it been acted on in a timely manner by the govt., would have led to the interdiction of over 200 tons of cocaine. Most of the bad acts charged in the indictment against Abbell et. al., occurred a significant time after my original proffer. A question that needs to be addressed is the legality of the US Attorney interfering with my proffer.

    To facilitate my pretrial proffer, I did the following:

        1) I had Ted Gunderson as an investigator to help independently corroborate key points of my proffer.

        2) I had Alan Boyak, an attorney and former DEA agent, prepare the pretrial proffer. Alan also had direct knowledge of some of the key points in my proffer because he had worked cases against some of the targets when he was a DEA agent.

        3) The head of the intelligence unit of the Tampa Bay Fla. Police Dept. offered to be the intermediary for the deal.

    The govt. reacted to my proffer by:

        1) Threatening Ted with arrest and banning him from visiting me in the county jail before and during my trial.

        2) Refusing to allow Alan Boyak to attend any of the pretrial proffer meetings with my other attorneys.

        3) Formally demanding that the Tampa Bay P.D. refrain from interfering with a case outside of their jurisdiction.

        4) Filed a motion with the court for 4141 and 4142 competency hearings. This go vt. motion questioning my competency was based in part on the govt's stated position that my proffer was delusional.

        5) The AUSA prosecuting my case flew to Los Angeles from Seattle and presented Robert Booth Nichols with a copy of my pretrial proffer where I had named Nichols and his associates as targets.

    I would have been declared incompetent had not the series of articles appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle outlining the bio warfare projects at the Wackenhut /Cabezon joint venture. My claim to have been involved in bio warfare work was cited, by the govt, in the motion for the competency hearing These clearly documented my claim concerning bio warfare work. When the forensic evaluation was sent to the court, it established that "...some of my most unlikely sounding claims turned out to be true upon checking with collateral sources. The govt. response was that so what if it is true, it is not relevant to their case in chief which is a drug case.

    My proffer was never reconsidered by the govt after the determination of my competency. The fact of the matter is that I have a solid established record of reliability in the counterintelligence field. This is clearly documented in my central file. The US Attorney handling my pretrial proffer certainly had this information available to him at the time. The glaring question is why did the AUSA reveal the details of my pretrial proffer to potential targets!?

    As I have stated to you in past letters,and telephone calls, I have been attempting to proffer against Nichols and his crew. The DOJ/BOP [Department of Justice/Bureau of Prisons] has consistently interfered with all of my attempts in this proffer. I have stated that I need you to facilitate my communication with other parties that have direct knowledge against Nichols et. al.

    Things have now come to a head! I now have contact with an operative that is in an Arabic group known as The Base. They are presently engaged in preparation for a major attack in the US. [..blacked out words..] currently represents the Abuhouran brothers, two of the brothers are incarcerated in the US. The third is a fugitive facing 15 years jail time in the US. We have an insider to this group that handles fake ID and passports for the group's operations. I also have contact with one of the parties that supplies explosives materials to this group. I am deliberately keeping myself with a paucity of specific details until the govt issues an immunity agreement with my contacts. If the govt will not issue the immunity agreement, no more details of these ongoing activities will be forthcoming from anybody. My bonafides are:

        1) I have family members in the [..blacked out..] leadership (..blacked out..) a Christian militia group

        2) Thirty-four days before the two US Embassy bombings in East Africa happened, I notified the FBI in Miami! Two days before these bombings occurred, I made an emergency request of BOP staff at FCI Coleman to make an overseas telephone call to ECOMAG security headquarters to warn African officials. The BOP categorically turned me down on this call. I have the documentation on all of this.

        3) In the 1980's, Ted Gunderson , myself, and Ralph Olberg were involved in negotiations with the Afghan Mujahadeen on behalf of the US govt. Ted will verify that we had these meetings and that OSAMA BIN LADEN was present in the US under the name of TIM OSMAN. Mr. Osman was taken to special demonstrations at US military bases.

        4) I have an exemplary track record in the counter intelligence field.

    Mr. [..blacked out..] is flying out to visit me this week. This letter is my authorization for you to discuss the details of all my written and oral communications with him. The Abuhousan Brothers are writing similar letters to their attorneys: [..blacked out words..] to authorize them to speak to both you and [..blacked out words..] on this matter. This authorization will also include your access to documents.

    As soon as we learned that an actual attack was in the works, we realized we can't fool around with this. On the other hand, we don't want to get screwed by the govt.

    Mike Riconosciuto

    P.S. Somebody just got certiorari on the PLRA exhaustion of administrative remedy requirements. Notice on this enclosed.

The Riconosciuto Letters, Exhibit "B"

Urgent Feb. 14, 2001 Warning to Congressman of 'Planned Attacks in the U.S.'

    " This needs to be dealt with ASAP. If not dealt with in a timely fasion, this opportunity will be gone." ...Michael Riconosciuto

    [Editor's Note: Exhibit "B" is the second handwritten letter by Michael Riconosciuto (held in federal prison in Allenwood, PA) in Ted Gunderson's report Terrorism Cover Up in America. It was sent from Riconosciuto by certified mail (#7000 0600 0027 1175 6538) to Congressman Brian Baird (D-WA) on February 14, 2001 (The original handwritten letter can be viewed here: Page1, Page 2, and the certified proof of mailing). Mike Riconosciuto had been an intelligence asset for the U.S. government for a long time, but ran afoul of the Big Boys because of the work he had done for them in opening a 'back door' for the (privately owned and proprietary) PROMIS software. Mike was subpoenaed to appear before the Brooks Congressional Committee investigating the government's role in the Inslaw Case which involved the PROMIS software. Three weeks before he was to testify in front of the committee, Mike got a telephone call from a Department of Justice official named Peter Videnieke, who, according to Michael Riconosciuto, told him that if he testified before the committee, he would have to 'suffer the consequences'. Riconosciuto testified anyway and shortly afterwards, his small trailer workshop/lab in northern Washington state (Riconosciuto is a scientist by profession) was raided by federal agents. .

    Riconosciuto suddenly found himself the target of an indictment for operating a "methamphetamine lab". Apparently, possession of common (& legally obtained) chemical solvents that could be used during one of many steps involved in meth production, is enough to get you convicted these days for running a meth lab, despite the absence of evidence of the drug itself (the feds having destroyed all of Mike's lab glassware; glassware that could have established the absence of illegal drug residues, which you would expect to find in abundance for a 'meth lab' operation). Mike's trial set a new mark for prosecutorial and judicial abuse even by federal 'railroading' standards. He was given a 30 year sentence for a first time drug offence.

    Riconosciuto's intelligence contacts continued after he was incarcerated and his investigative probes into the activities of Robert Booth Nichols (Cabazon Indian reservation scandal) led to an trusted inside source that was providing high level information about planned attacks in the U.S. by Islamic radicals. Riconosciuto and his lawyers were doing their best to bring this valuable information to the attention of the appropriate government agencies and the highest political figures with the authority to take action, but they were met with either stone silence, a perfunctory listening (FBI), or outright dismissal (FBI, DOJ). Mike was particularly weary of the FBI, because they kept betraying him. For example, they turned over a copy of Mike's intelligence info given to federal investigative authorities about Robert B. Nichols to Robert B. Nichols!

    In this letter, Riconosciuto calls Rep. Baird's attention to the "extreme urgency" and "time sensitive" nature of the planned terrorists attack information. He says that his Islamic source has "a chillingly accurate track record with his information" and is prepared to reveal much greater information if the government would consider his proffer and provide immunity from prosecution. At the same time, Riconosciuto's lawyers were also trying to bring this critical intelligence to cabinet level officials and influential Congressional politicians as other Exhibits in this Report will reveal. The greatest stonewalling, however, was yet to greet Ted Gunderson by Administration officials and the mainstream media following the WTC attacks, which Riconosciuto's warnings-had they been heeded and investigated- could have stemmed the attack. You cannot help but draw the conclusion that very powerful forces in this country wanted the 9-11 attacks to take place and they were doing their best to ignore anyone who was trying to warn them...Ken Adachi]

    Congressman Baird,

    Enclosed are copies of a recent series of articles that appeared in the Washington Times' Insight Magazine. The documents, that appear in the photo were taken from me during my trial, As a consequence, I did not have benefit of this material for my defense. Now, years later, this material shows up in the media. Of particular note, is the letter on Wackenhut stationary that refers to Dr. Fair's characterization of me as a potential national resource because of my technical ability. This is significant because it is in direct opposition to what was presented to my trial. jury. Also enclosed, is the paperwork trail on the initial contact I had with the Canadian RCMP/NSIS [Royal Canadian Mounted Police/National Security

    The treatment I received at FCI Coleman was in large part retaliation against me for cooperating with the RCMP/NSIS investigation. The FBI has lodged formal protest to the Canadian govt. for this RCMP investigation. The charges brought against me by the FBI at Coleman were found to be absolutely baseless. The timing of the events leading up to these charges is highly suspicious looking and beyond mere coincidence,

    Things are not alright in my case. The BOP [Bureau of Prisons] response to your inquiries have been mere bureaucratic cover responses. My present problems are too numerous to address in one letter. As per my last conversation with Barry, I will keep my letters basically confined to a single issue.

    The issue I wish to address here is of extreme urgency because it is time sensitive. As is apparent from the Insight series, my claims check out. Yet, the US govt. refuses to deal with me in a straightforward manner when I proffer information. As I previously stated, I have been cooperating with U.S. Customs agents against Robert Booth Nichols and his group. There is some reason that Mr. Nichols and associates seem to be immune from prosecution. In my efforts to help work a case against Nichols, I have come across some important intelligence leads.

    Recently, one of these contacts has found himself in a very unique position with a major Islamic radical group. This party is presently involved in providing ID's and passports. Very recently, he has been put in a position of trust with this group. The significant issue here is that this party has contacts with the principals of numerous cells in the organization. It is extremely rare that one source is able to penetrate across many different cells in one of these organizations! This is a rare and valuable asset. This needs to be dealt with ASAP. If not dealt with in a timely fashion, this opportunity will be gone. This source, and several others, report of planned attacks in the US. One of these sources is [...blanked out words...] . This party has a chillingly accurate track record with his information. Several very credible lawyers have attempted to get the DOJ [Department of Justice] to move on this situation. They went to the DOJ, and then finally to Senator Santorum. They were referred to Senator Patty Murray because I am from Washington State. We were told to contact a Mr. McMackin (202-224-2621). I have recently gotten ahold of a retired CIA Terrorism specialist. He is making a referral to a current case officer. This may take some time.

    Time is of the essence here. Will you please find someone in Senator Murray's office that is able to handle this information. I will attempt to call Barry in the Olympia office on Tuesday 2/20/01. Someone in a position of authority, capable of acting on this, needs to come and interview me on this.

Coleman Testimony On
CIA's PAN AM 103 Drug
Smuggling Corroborated
http://www.rense.com/general/cole.htm
From NewsHawk Inc. <hawknews@iname.com>
4-18-00 

Respondent Virginia McCullough is fully-conversant with the details the PAN AM Fl. 103 crash, and knowledgeable about CIA drug smuggling operations which were a major factor in the tragedy.
 
Former DIA agent Lester Coleman, unsurprisingly, was recently incarcerated on bogus charges as a way to shut him up, after he blew the whistle on massive CIA drug smuggling activity directly responsible for certain airport security anomalies/breeches, which enabled explosives to be smuggled aboard Fl. 103. The plane blew up over Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988.
 
Coleman's crucial statements on the CIA drug smuggling have now been corroborated by a PAN AM baggage handler based in Frankfurt, Germany named Roland O'Neill.
 
Palestinian terrorists based in Germany penetrated the CIA drug operations, and switched a bag containing drugs to be smuggled with one containing Semtex explosives. the rest is history--a history of 270 innocent human beings blow to shreds in an incident of horrendous brutality--all made possible by the filthy international drug dealing of OUR Central Intelligence Agency!

Subject: Coleman Corraborated on CIA's PANAM 103 Drug Smuggling Date: Mon, 17 Apr 2000 10:47:32 -0700 From: virginia.mccullough@netzero.net To: <hawk_news@yahoo.com
 
John:
 
I think it is very important to present a "full" and complete picture of Lester K. Coleman in order to understand why he is so important to understanding "the big picture". To that end I am going to type in an article about Coleman from the London Times dated Monday, July 22,1991. The article carries no byline and reads as follows:
 
US DRUGS STING 'GAVE PAN AM BOMBER COVER'
 
The London Times 7-22-91
 
A former American intelligence officer who worked for a secret unit, four of whose members have been killed, in hiding abroad because of allegations he has made about the Lockerbie bomb disaster.
 
Lester Knox Coleman, formerly with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) is a key witness behind allegations that negligence on the part of the US government led to the placing of a bomb on board Pan Am flight 103 which exploded over Lockerbie in Scotland on December 21, 1988, killing 270 people.
 
Mr. Coleman, aged 47, worked until May 1990 with the secret unit Middle East Collection 10 (MC10). For most of his six years with the DIA he was in Cyprus, running a network of agents in Beirut, whose mission was to find American hostages held by extremists. Two senior MC10 members, were Matthew Kevin Gannon and Major Charles Dennis McKee. Both were on flight 103 and had just returned from a mission in Beirut. Also on board was Khaled Nazir Jaafar, a Lebanese agent for the American Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
 
Mr. Coleman was a unique insight into DIA and DEA operations in the Middle East because he worked for both organizations in Cyprus. While still a DIA agent -- usually paid in travelers cheques sent from the Luxembourg branch of the now collapsed Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) -- he was seconded twice to the DEA, from February to September 1987 and April to May 1988.
 
According to an affidavit by Mr. Coleman given to Pan Am lawyers in Brussels on April 17 this year [1991], the DEA, with the narcotics squad of the Cypriot national police, the German BKA police and British customs, ran a "drugs sting operation" through Cyprus and airports in Europe including Frankfurt. It involved delivering heroin from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon to the United States, particularly to Detroit, Houston and Los Angeles, where there are large Lebanese communities.
 
The explanation for this operation, which was officially codenamed Khourah, was provided by Ronald Caffrey, acting assistant administrator of the operational division of the DEA, in a US government submission dated March 20 this year [1991]. He said the drugs operation was "a controlled delivery".
 
His statement said: "In a controlled delivery, a law enforcement agency permits and monitors shipment of contraband, including drugs, to move from a source or transit location to its intended destination. Use of this technique is sometimes essential to enable law enforcement agencies to identify and arrest high-ranking members of trafficking organizations, rather than simply arrest low level couriers."
 
Mr. Coleman, with his knowledge of this type of operation, believes that flight 103 was being used by the DEA as a "controlled" flight in which Khaled Jaafar, a DEA courier, was allowed to carry his luggage through Frankfurt without being subject to normal security checks. He knew Jaafar was one of many agents involved in drug operations.
 
In a telephone conversation last October with a BKA officer in charge of investigations at Frankfurt Rhein-Main airport, Mr. Coleman said he was told that BKA had "serious concerns" that a US drugs sting operation out of Cyprus had been used by terrorists to place the bomb on flight 103, by switching bags.
 
According to reports last year, the security of flight 103 had already been compromised by a mysterious man with an American accent using the pseudonym David Lovejoy, who had reportedly telephoned the Iranian embassy in Beirut on December 20, 1988, the day before the Lockerbie flight, to tip them off that US agents Gannon and McKee would return from a mission in Beirut to the US on flight 103.
 
Mr. Coleman said: "Individuals involved in drug sting operations would arrive at Larnaca (in Cyprus) on the ferry from Jounich (in Lebanon) and be escorted by officers of the Cypriot national police to the offices of Eurame Trading Company in Nicosia, a DEA proprietory company." Mr. Coleman saw Khaled Jaafar on at least three occasions in the Eurame offices and knew him to be a DEA courier.
 
The DEA has denied it was involved in a drugs sting operation at any time around the Lockerbie incident. But James Shaughnessy, lead counsel for Pan Am, said in his latest affidavit dated May 3 [1991]: "The DEA's denial is incredulous....simply false." Pan Am's affidavit refers to a telephone conversation between a senior officer of British customs' investigations branch and Michael Jones of Pan Am Corporate Security in London in which he asked: "Have you considered a bag switch in Frankfurt due to the large amounts of Turkish workers?"
 
The Beirut end of MC10 had been "blown". There were five key members of the MC10 cell in Cyprus and Beirut, according to Mr. Coleman. Apart from Mr. Coleman there were Werner Tony Asmar, a German Lebanese, Charlie Frezeli, a Lebanese army officer, and two more Lebanese who worked with Asmar. Asmar was killed in a bomb explosion at his office in east Beirut on May 26, 1988. Frezeli was shot dead at his home in east Beirut in November 1989. When Asmar was killed, the DIA ordered Mr. Coleman home.
 
Those, like Mr. Coleman and the Pan Am lawyers who are convinced there is a link between the Lockerbie bomb and "Operation Khourah" were not helped by the so-called Aviv report, which claimed that a rogue CIA unit permitted the bags switch, knowing it contained a bomb. The report, produced by Isaeli investigator Juval Aviv was discredited. Now, however, a judge in a US court has ruled that the US government must produce all relevant documents relating to the practice of drugs sting operations through Frankfurt and elsewhere in Europe. _____
 
END OF ARTICLE
 
 
 
It is VERY important to read the preceding article closely and then re-read it again. Next one must compare the information in the article to an affidavit Coleman introduced in Adversary Proceeding No. 86-0069 in the case entitled INSLAW, INC, plaintiff V. USA and the USA DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
 
The affidavit reads as follows:
 
I, LESTER K. COLEMAN, being duly sworn do hereby state as follows:
 
1. I am currently self-employed as a freelance writer, editor, and security consultant. I am a United States citizen and am temporarily residing outside of the United States.
 
2. In November 1984, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) offered me a position in human intelligence operations in the Middle East. I was raised in the Middle East, where I lived in Iran, Libya and Saudi Arabia. I speak three dialects of Arabic and some Farsi. I accepted the position and received training from the DIA. I was assigned to a Middle East intelligence unit.
 
3. Between February and September 1987, I was seconded by DIA to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Nicosia, Cyprus, reporting to the DEA Country Attache, Michael T. Hurley.
 
4. After a cover assignment in the United States, I was again seconded to the DEA in Nicosia, Cyprus, in early 1988.
 
5. During April and May 1988, I worked in the offices of EURAME Trading Company, Ltd., in Nicosia, Cyprus, a DEA proprietary company. On or about May 29, 1988, because of my concern about poor security in the DEA operation in Cyprus, I returned to the United States, having previously obtained the concurrence of the DIA.
 
6. During my two stints as a DIA covert intelligence officer seconded to the DEA in Nicosia, Cyprus, I became aware of the fact that DEA was using its proprietary company, EURAME Trading Company, Ltd, to sell computer software called PROMISE or PROMIS to the drug abuse control agencies of various countries in the Middle East, including Cyprus, Pakistan, Syria, Kuwait and Turkey.
 
7. I personally witnessed the unpacking at the Nicosia, Cyprus, Police Force Narcotics Squad of boxes containing reels of computer tapes and computer hardware. The boxes bore the name and red logo of a Canadian corporation with the words "PROMISE" or "PROMIS" and "Ltd" in the company name.
 
8. The DEA objective in inducing the implementation of this computerized PROMIS[E] system in the drug abuse control resources available to the United States Government by making it possible for the United States Government to access sensitive drug control law enforcement and intelligence files of these Middle East governments.
 
9. It is also my understanding that third-party funds were generally made available for the purchase of these computer software and hardware systems. One third-party funding source was the United Nations Fund for Drug Abuse Control in Vienna, Austria.
 
10. As DEA Country Attache for Cyprus, Michael T. Hurley had overall responsibility for both the EURAME Trading Company, Ltd, and its initiative to sell PROMIS[E] computer systems to Middle East countries to drug abuse control.
 
11. In 1990, DEA reassigned Hurley to a DEA intelligence position in Washington State.
 
12. I became aware in 1991 that Michael Riconosciuto, known to me as a long-time CIA asset, was arrested in Washington State by DEA for the manufacturing of illegal chemical drugs. I had also become aware of the fact that Riconosciuto made a sworn statement, prior to his arrest, about his participation in a covert U.S. intelligence initiative to sell INSLAW's PROMIS to foreign governments.
 
13. In light of Hurley's personal involvement in the U.S. Government's covert intelligence initiative to sell PROMIS[E] software to foreign governments and his reassignment to a DEA intelligence position in Washington State in advance of the DEA's arrest of Riconosciuto, the arrest of Riconosciuto should be regarded as suspect. I do not believe that Hurley's posting to a drug intelligence position in Washington State in advance of Riconosciuto's arrest on drug charges in merely coincidental. Rather, the probability is that Hurley was reassigned to Washington State to manufacture a case against Riconosciuto in order to prevent Riconosciuto to become a credible witness about the U.S. Government's covert sale of the PROMIS software to foreign governments.
 
14. The investigative journalist Danny Casolaro contacted me in Europe on August 3, 1991. Mr. Casolaro had leads and hard information about things that I know about, including Department of Justice groups operating overseas, the sale of PROMIS[E] software by the U.S. Government to foreign governments, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), and the Iran/Contra scandal. I subsequently learned of Mr. Casolaro's death in Martinsburg, West Virginia, one week later, on August 10, 1991. I contacted INSLAW in October 1991, after learning about Mr. Casolaro's death under suspicious circumstances.
 
FURTHER AFFIANT SAYETH NOT. Signed by Lester K. Coleman
 
This, then, was Danny Casolaro's Octopus. Casolaro had been interviewing Michael Riconosciuto since approximately May of 1990; Casolaro had also met with and interviewed Michael's wife, Bobbie. Both Riconosciutos had told Casolaro the same thing they have repeatedly told me about the downing of Pan Am 103. Michael Roconosciuto claimed to be an intelligence officer monitoring the hostage situation in Iran staying at the apartment of Robert Booth Nichols and Ellen Hopko Nichols located near the Nicosia, Cyprus airport. This group of people, according to Michael, were also involved in the "controlled drug operation" run by the DIA. Riconosciuto stated that they were paid with unsigned BCCI travelers checks. Shortly before the Lockerbie crash Riconosciuto returned to his home in Oregon. He knew that the McKee team would be returning to the United States to "blow the whistle" on the drug operation run by George W. Bush. Riconosciuto told me that when the warning came to the unit in Nicosia that there might be a bombing of Pan Am #103, Robert Booth Nichols told Rinconosciuto that he would change the reservation for the McKee team to another flight, just as FBI agent Revell's son had done. The night of the Lockerbie crash, Bobbi Riconosciuto was watching the television with their children when she learned of the crash and heard that the McKee team went down with others on board. She woke Michael up and told him. Michael broke from Robert Booth Nichols from that point forward because he held Nichols responsible for betraying the McKee team.
 
Robert Booth Nichols became the key source for Danny Casolaro who had contacted Lester K. Coleman seven days before his murder in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Nichols stated, in a lawsuit against the FBI and FBI agent Thomas Gates, that he has had no source of income for the past twenty+ years and yet his concealed weapons permit shows that he maintains many residences around the world. Sam Giacana was Nichols business partner and it is rumored that his mentor is the head of Yakuza in Hawaii. Nichols' lawsuit was sustained by a declaration submitted by the former head of the LA FBI, Ted Gunderson. Gunderson has stated to me and others that he owes his life to Nichols because he called off a mob hit on Gunderson. Gunderson also states that he is nothing but a private investigator but documents out of his own files show his intelligence connections.
 
270 people were killed on Pan Am 103 and the United States government is continually silencing witnesses who could tell the truth about what happened. Lawyers who hold the Coleman documents out for ransom, judges to use the law to torture and imprison individuals who would expose the intelligence prostitutes who whore for drugs, arms, power and money, and an apathetic public are the ones who are responsible for the murder of those who died at Lockerbie. Let Lester K. Coleman testify. Let Michael Riconosciuto testify. MAKE Robert Booth and Ellen Hopko Nichols testify. FORCE Michael T. Hurley to testify. MAKE THEM TELL THE TRUTH!! If the families of the victims want to really know what happened they should demand the head of Danny Casolaro's Octopus.

Lester Coleman Incarceration Update
 
 
To: RuMills List <RuMills@egroups.com Date: 4-17-00 From: Doretta Wildes <dorettaw@earthlink.net Reply-To: RuMills-owner@egroups.com
 
Les called today expressing a need for reassurance that we have not given up on him. I told him to rest assured. His attorney (Mike Meehan) has contacted his doctor and arrangements have been made to get him his meds tonight. Meehan anticipates that Les will be moved to NY soon to appear before Judge Thomas Platt on Thursday (4/20).
 
Les tells me that he shares a cell with two others and that they are not treated very well.
 
Spoke with Ian Fergeason's wife who is making arrangements to forward me articles that appeared in a Glasgow newspaper. I will post them as they're received.
 
As yet unable to locate an address for Judge Platt. He is not listed as a judge in the Southern District Courts of NY. Will try to find an address in the Eastern District Courts. If any of you can do this quicker than I, go ahead.
 
I could also use help contacting Pacifica Radio (1-800-735-0230) based somewhere on the West Coast. The contacts there are Amy Goodman and Maria Carrion. Have left messages, but without a call back thus far.
 
All for now. Say prayers for Les and his family.
 
Blessings, Doretta

Les's attorney in Kentucky, Mike Meehan, has provided the appropriate way to address letters to Platt. See below. But don't expect to talk to the judge or fax him info. He will accept letters only.
 
Hon. Thomas C. Platt U.S. District Court Eastern District of New York 2 Uniondale Avenue Uniondale, NY 11553
 
(516) 292-1835 - Court Clerk's Office (516) 485-6508 - His Secretary's number (516) 486-6949 - Courtroom Deputy Number
 
By tomorrow, I should have a letter drafted out and will post it. Your letter should be RESPECTFUL but TO THE POINT. The main point being that Les has a family to care for and poses no threat to society at large. Throwing him into a federal prison is cruel given his circumstances; particularly since he is trying to appeal the perjury conviction, having pleaded guilty under duress. Also, Les still suffers the physical and emotional effects of his stay in the New York federal prison a few years ago, for which he requires treatment.
 
Let lawyers argue the legal points with Platt. Stick to the HUMAN SIDE OF HIS STORY, which is compelling in and of itself. Don't threaten Platt or wag your finger under his nose. That won't help Les. As I said, I will draft a letter which you are welcome to use as a template.
 
Just so that you know what sort of person Platt is, however, click on the following url:
 
http://www.copi.com/octopus/PlAttitude.html
 
This is apparently about a complaint filed against Platt for his decisions and specious reasoning in several cases, one of which was Les's case. This is a federal judge who has demonstrated contempt for basic human rights as well as the law of the land. How can this be? I think we all know.
 
Blessings to you. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT EVERY LETTER COUNTS. The greater our show of support, the better for Les in the long run.

23 May 2008
Col Lang Harper

I wanted to flag your attention, and the attention of your readers, to some new dramatic developments in a story you reported last year. The U.S. Department of Justice is agressively pursuing their case against BAE Systems, the British arms company, which is accused of paying billions of dollars in bribes to Saudi officials, including the former Ambassador in Washington, Prince Bandar. Bandar alone is said to have received over $2 billion in BAE kickbacks, for his role in the "Al Yamamah" deal between Britain and Saudi Arabia (I hear that the actual figure paid to Bandar and some of his henchmen was closer to $10 billion).

 On May 12, two top executives of BAE, Chairman Mike Turner and an outside director who is also vice chairman of Barclay's Bank, were detained by U.S. officials as they arrived at Houston and Newark airports, respectively. They were handed grand jury subpoenas, and had their laptops, cell phones and papers temporarily confiscated. The latest from the DOJ is that the career prosecutors are so furious at the British government's stonewalling, that they are threatening RICO prosecutions against BAE.

Remember, that the real story behind the BAE "Al Yamamah" scandal is that, under the arms-for-oil barter deal, the British accumulated well-over $100 billion, in off-the-books, offshore funds, that have been used to finance covert operations, for the past 23 years (the deal was first signed in 1985, and has been regularly updated ever since).

The other nagging matter around the BAE case is that Prince Bandar "inadvertently" helped finance the 9/11 attacks, through funds provided by him and his wife to two Saudi intelligence operative in California, who, in turn, bankrolled two of the hijackers. This sordid tale is spelled out in Philip Shenon's admirable expose of the 9/11 Commission investigation, in the 2008 book, The Commission--The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation.

My own sources have independently corroborated much of what Shenon reports. For their part, the Saudis and the British are not at all happy about what is going on at the DOJ. The Sunday Telegraph and other British papers have been ranting about the "heavy handed" treatment of the BAE execs, and they worry about a deeper rift, going into the upcoming G-8 summit in Japan in early July. A treaty is pending before the U.S. Senate, that would give British arms manufacturers equal access to Pentagon contracts, and a hearing was held this past week on the treaty at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

 Biden, Lugar and Feingold all expressed apprehension over the treaty, and there is fear that the BAE flap will further complicate its passage. Again, the biggest aspect of the BAE/"Al Yamamah" story is the offshore fund.

To summarize: BAE delivered about $40 billion in arms and services to Saudi Arabia. BAE padded the bills substantially, up to nearly $80 billion. The pad was used, in part, to bribe Saudi officials who helped swing the deal, including Bandar and Prince Turki bin-Khaled, a top official of the Saudi Ministry of Defense. That part is fully detailed in the Guardian and other British coverage of the BAE scandal, going back three or four years.

 What is not covered in the British press is the fact that Saudi Arabia paid for the arms with oil. The oil was sold on the spot market, and this generated an estimated (in current dollars) $160 billion in cash. I am told by former U.S. Treasury Department officials that the funds generated from the oil sales, after BAE got their cut, went into offshore bank accounts. Those funds were invested by the usual hedge funds, etc. in places like the Cayman Islands, BVI, etc., and the profits over the past 23 years from those investments, multiplied the size of the fund tremendously.
 I look forward to any comments on this very big story, that has never gotten adequate media or Congressional attention, in my humble opinion.


Just to show, BAE for those that don't know is the leading weapons manufature for the U.K. and "The Queen"...

So U.S. sold weapons to Israel/Iraq while The Qeen sold weapons to the Saudi's, hegamony complete...

‘Scandal of the Century’

Executive Intelligence Review

by Jeffrey Steinberg

On June 6, the British Broadcasting Corporation aired a sensational story, revealing that the British arms manufacturer BAE Systems, had paid more than $2 billion in bribes to Saudi Arabia’s national security chief and longtime Ambassador in Washington, Prince Bandar bin-Sultan, over a 22 year period. The BBC revelations were further detailed on June 11, in a one-hour Panorama TV documentary, provocatively titled “Princes, Planes and Pay-offs,” which detailed a more than decade-long probe by the Guardian, BBC, and the British Serious Fraud Office (SFO), into the al-Yamamah arms contract, a nearly $80 billion, 22-year long deal between BAE Systems and the Saudi government, in which British-made fighter jets and support services were provided to the Saudi Kingdom, beginning in 1985.

Every British government, from Margaret Thatcher, through John Major, to Tony Blair, has been thoroughly implicated in the BAE-Saudi scandal. In December 2006, Britain’s Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, ordered the SFO probe shut down, declaring that any further investigation would gravely jeopardize British national security. Prime Minister Blair fully backed his Attorney General, and is now scrambling to complete the fourth phase of the al-Yamamah deal before he leaves office next month.

Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar and former British PM Thatcher were at the center of creating the BAE arms-for-oil money-laundering scandal.

The furor that followed the Goldsmith announcement triggered a number of international investigations into the BAE Systems scandal, including by the Swiss government and the OECD (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development, the so-called “rich nations” club). More recently, the U.S. Department of Justice has reportedly opened a probe into money laundering and possible violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, on the part of the British and the Saudis. The estimated $2 billion in cumulative payoffs to Prince Bandar, for his role in brokering the al-Yamamah deal, went through the Saudi government accounts at Riggs Bank in Washington, D.C., thus opening the U.S. jurisdiction.

While the various British investigations into the al-Yamamah (Arabic for “the dove”) arms deal did unearth a vast network of front companies, offshore shells, and corrupt politicians, who benefitted richly from the deal, EIR’s own preliminary investigation into the scandal has uncovered a far more significant story, one that will send shock waves through the City of London financial circles, as well as top figures within the British monarchy, who are all implicated in a far bigger scheme that goes to the very heart of the Venetian-modeled Anglo-Dutch Liberal system of global finance, which is now on its last legs.

Al-Yamamah
In 1985, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in part frightened by the ongoing war between its neighbors Iran and Iraq, which had reached a highly destructive phase known as the “war of the cities,” sought to purchase large numbers of advanced fighter jets to build up their Royal Air Force. Initially, the Saudis sought approval from the Reagan Administration to purchase American-made F-15 fighters. The Saudi F-15 deal required Congressional approval, and the America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) waged a massive effort to kill the sale. According to several well-informed Washington sources, Howard Teicher, a senior official on the Reagan National Security Council (director of Near East and South Asia, 1982-1985; senior director, Politico-Military Affairs, 1986-1987), also played a pivotal role in the AIPAC effort, which ultimately succeeded in killing the deal. Teicher, according to the sources, withheld information from Reagan, stalling a Congressional vote until AIPAC had fully mobilized, and then convinced the President to withdraw the request, rather than face an embarrassing defeat in the Congress.

Other sources have offered a slightly different version of the failure of the F-15 deal, claiming that intelligence community estimates, since the mid-1970s, had warned of instability in the Persian Gulf, and that there were, therefore, other reasons to question the advisability of the sales of advanced U.S. military technology to Saudi Arabia, particularly after the Khomeini Revolution in Iran.

Whatever the reason, the F-15 deal failed. The very next day, after the Reagan Administration threw in the towel, Prince Bandar, the Kingdom’s de facto chief diplomat to Britain, the Soviet Union, and China, as well as the U.S.A., flew to London to meet with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. British arms sales did not require parliamentary approval, and the British government, in 1966, had created an agency, the Defence Export Services Organization (DESO), to hawk British arms around the globe. BAE Systems had been created in 1981, when Thatcher privatized the British arms manufacturing industry, which had, only four years earlier, been nationalized under the Labour government. And BAE Systems, the largest arms manufacturer in Europe, dominates the British defense sector.

The Bandar trip to London to confer with Thatcher had been in the works for months. A Ministry of Defence briefing paper, prepared for the Thatcher-Bandar sessions, stated, “Since early 1984, intensive efforts have been made to sell Tornado and Hawk to the Saudis. When, in the Autumn of 1984, they seemed to be leaning towards French Mirage fighters, Mr. Heseltine paid an urgent visit to Saudi Arabia, carrying a letter from the Prime Minister to King Fahd. In December 1984, the Prime Minister started a series of important negotiations by meeting Prince Bandar, the son of Prince Sultan…. The Prime Minister met the King in Riyadh in April this year and in August the King wrote to her stating his decision to buy 48 Tornado IDS and 30 Hawk.”

Thatcher also had every reason to feel confident that Bandar would be the perfect interlocutor between Saudi Arabia and Great Britain in the deal of the century. At age 16, several years after his father, Prince Sultan, had been named Minister of Defense of the Kingdom, the Prince was sent to England to study at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell, the elite officer’s training school for future RAF pilots. At least one senior American intelligence official has reported widespread rumors that Bandar was recruited by MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service, before he finished his RAF training. Other sources, intimately familiar with the goings-on at BAE Systems, report that the “private” aerospace giant has a sales force made up almost exclusively of “lads” recruited to MI6 before their hires.

Whether or not these reports are accurate, Bandar certainly is a serious Anglophile. The best accounts of his adventures in England appear in the 2006 book, The Prince—The Secret Story of the World’s Most Intriguing Royal (HarperCollins, New York), by William Simpson, a Cranwell classmate, and still-intimate pal of the Prince. Simpson, who wrote the book with the full cooperation of Bandar, recounted his friend’s intimate ties with every occupant of 10 Downing Street.

“In London,” Simpson reported, “Bandar would breeze into Number Ten with uninhibited panache. From Margaret Thatcher to John Major to Tony Blair, Bandar’s access was extraordinary.” By Prince Bandar’s own account to Simpson about al-Yamamah, “When we first made the agreement, we had no contract. It was a handshake between me and Mrs. Thatcher in Ten Downing Street.” It was months before the final details of the al-Yamamah deal were finalized, and the contracts signed. But even before the ink had dried, Britain had provided the initial delivery of Tornado jets—from the inventory of the RAF.

By the time the formal Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the British and Saudi defense ministers on Sept. 25, 1985, the original order had been expanded to 72 Tornado fighter jets and 30 Hawk training aircraft, along with other equipment and services. There have been two subsequent deals, al-Yamamah II and III, and al-Yamamah IV, worth as much as $40 billion in additional arms deliveries, is in the final stages.

Oil-For-Aircraft
The al-Yamamah deal was structured as a barter arrangement. While the Saudis did agree to pay cash for certain services and infrastructure construction under separate sub-contracts—and those cash payments went, in part, to “consulting fees” or bribes, including the $2 billion to Prince Bandar’s accounts at Riggs Bank, and similar reported payments to the Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet and the Dutch Royal Consort, Prince Bernhard—the essential contract involved the Saudi delivery of oil to Britain, in return for the fighter jets.

And here is where the story gets really interesting.

Saudi Arabia agreed to provide Britain with one tanker of oil per day, for the entire life of the al-Yamamah contracts. An oil tanker holds approximately 600,000 barrels of oil. BAE Systems began “official” delivery of the Tornado and Hawk planes to Saudi Arabia in 1989. BAE Systems now has approximately 5,000 employees inside Saudi Arabia, servicing the contract.

Is it possible to place a cash value on the oil deliveries to BAE Systems? According to sources familiar with the inner workings of al-Yamamah, much of the Saudi oil was sold on the international spot market at market value, through British Petroleum and Royal Dutch Shell.

EIR economist John Hoefle has done an in-depth charting of the financial features of the oil transactions, based on BP’s own daily tracking of world oil prices on the open market. Using BP’s average annual cost of a barrel of Saudi crude oil, Hoefle concluded that the total value of the oil sales, based on the value of the dollar at the time of delivery, was $125 billion. In current U.S. dollar terms, that total soars to $160 billion (see accompanying charts).

Based on the best available public records, the total sticker price on the military equipment and services provided by BAE Systems to Saudi Arabia, over the 22-year period to date, was approximately $80 billion. And those figures are inflated by billions of dollars in slush fund payouts. Indeed, the latest limited-damage scandal around al-Yamamah erupted in November 2006, when a Ministry of Defence document leaked out, providing the actual sticker price on the fighter jets. The figure confirmed the long-held suspicion that the prices of the jets had been jacked up by at least 40%.

BAE Systems, a crown jewel in the City of London financial/industrial structure, secured somewhere in the range of $80 billion in net profit from the arrangement—in league with BP and Royal Dutch Shell! Where did that money go, and what kinds of activities were financed with it? The answer to those questions, sources emphasize, holds the key to the power of Anglo-Dutch finance in the world today.

Prince Bandar’s biographer and friend William Simpson certainly provided an insight into the inner workings of the al-Yamamah project: “Although al-Yamamah constitutes a highly unconventional way of doing business, its lucrative spin-offs are the by-product of a wholly political objective: a Saudi political objective and a British political objective. Al-Yamamah is, first and foremost, a political contract. Negotiated at the height of the Cold War, its unique structure has enabled the Saudis to purchase weapons from around the globe to fund the fight against Communism. Al-Yamamah money can be found in the clandestine purchase of Russian ordnance used in the expulsion of Qaddafi’s troops from Chad. It can also be traced to arms bought from Egypt and other countries, and sent to the Mujahideen in Afghanistan fighting the Soviet occupying forces.”

In effect, Prince Bandar’s biographer confirms that al-Yamamah is the biggest pool of clandestine cash in history—protected by Her Majesty’s Official Secrets Act and the even more impenetrable finances of the City of London and the offshore, unregulated financial havens under British dominion.

The Saudi Side of the Street
For its part, the Saudi Royal Family did not exactly get ripped off in the al-Yamamah deal. When the contract was signed in 1985, according to sources familiar with the arrangement, Saudi Arabia got an exemption from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). The barter deal with BAE Systems did not come under their OPEC production quota. In other words, Saudi Arabia got OPEC approval to produce 600,000 barrels a day, above the OPEC ceiling, to make the arms purchases.

According to the Energy Information Administration, a branch of the U.S. Department of Energy, over the life of the al-Yamamah program, the average cost of a Saudi barrel of crude oil, delivered to tankers, was under $5 a barrel. At that price, the annual cost to the Saudis for the 600,000 barrels per day was $1.1 billion. Over the duration of the contract to date, the cost to the Saudis of the daily oil shipments was approximately $24.6 billion. The commercial value, in current dollars, as noted above, was $160 billion.

The Saudis have forged a crucial partnership with the Anglo-Dutch financial oligarchy, headquartered in the City of London, and protected by the British Crown. They have, in league with BAE Systems, Royal Dutch Shell, British Petroleum, and other City giants, established a private, offshore, hidden financial concentration that would have made the British East India Company managers of an earlier heyday of the British Empire, drool with envy.

At this moment, there is no way of calculating how much of that slush fund has been devoted to the clandestine wars and Anglo-American covert operations of the past two decades. Nor is it possible to estimate the multiplier effect of portions of those undisclosed, and unregulated funds having passed through the hedge funds of the Cayman Island, the Isle of Man, Gibraltar, Panama, and Switzerland.
What is clear, is that the BAE Systems scandal goes far beyond the $2 billion that allegedly found its way into the pockets of Prince Bandar. It is a scandal that goes to the heart of the power of Anglo-Dutch finance.

There is much, much more to unearth, now that the door has been slightly opened into what already appears to be the swindle of the century.

Prince Bandar Biography
  

 His Royal Highness
Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud

His Royal Highness Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz was appointed Secretary-General of the National Security Council by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah on October 16, 2005.  Prior to his appointment, Prince Bandar served as the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the United States of America from October 24, 1983 to September 8, 2005.

Prince Bandar was born in Saudi Arabia on March 2, 1949, at Taif, the summer capital of the Kingdom, the son of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Defense and Aviation, and Inspector-General. He is married to Princess Haifa Bint Faisal. He has four sons and four daughters.

 
...

Prince Bandar graduated from the British Royal Air Force College at Cranwell, England, in 1968 and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF). He received pilot training in the United Kingdom and the United States, and has flown numerous fighter aircraft including the JP 3-4, T-38, T-33, F-5, F-53/55, F-102, and the F-15. During his seventeen-year military career he attained the rank of lieutenant colonel, commanded fighter squadrons at three RSAF bases, and undertook program management responsibilities in the major RSAF modernization project Peace Hawk. In addition, Prince Bandar carried out special assignments in Washington, DC, during the debates between the U.S. administration and the Congress concerning the sale to Saudi Arabia of F-15s in 1978 and of AWACs in 1981. In 1982 he was assigned to Washington, DC, as the Kingdom's defense attaché.

Anglo-Dutch Financier Cartel Escalates Attacks on Africa
May 18 (EIRNS)—Frantic that African nations will partner with Asia, to avoid the certain death of nation-states which the Anglo-Dutch imperial crowd is causing, via the IMF and WTO, the imperialists, in the past week, have escalated their campaign against two nations in particular, Sudan and Zimbabwe.

Sudan: As made explicit by the City of London's mouthpiece, the Economist, on May 15, the Anglo-Dutch are now targetting Sudan (which is the nation with the largest land area in Africa—bigger than Western Europe), for dismemberment, resulting from conflicts between the government and regions of the country outside the capital, Khartoum, and between the government and neighboring countries.

The Economist and the anglophile press generally, are pushing the idea that the Darfur conflict could spark a national or regional war, citing an abortive attack on the capital that took place on May 10-11. The Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), a rebel group based in Darfur, but which promotes a national cause (arguing that the government is not sharing the wealth with outlying regions), attempted an attack against Khartoum by driving across the country; the JEM reached the neighboring city of Omdurman, before they were dispersed by government forces. The attack made no military sense, but came in the context of the Anglo-Dutch strategy to set up the nation for fragmentation. The JEM has vowed to continue attacks throughout the country, a shift from their past position of pretending to fight for the rights of the Darfur region, in western Sudan, along the border with Chad.

The Economist gameplan shows that the campaign carried out by Western nations against Sudan, charging genocide, was only a pretext for destroying the country.

...
Is BAE Money Behind Latest Sudan Destabilization?
May 12 (EIRNS)—In light of charges that the government of Chad played a role in the recent rebel military actions in targetting the Sudanese capital of Khartoum, the question must be asked: Was BAE slush fund money behind this latest destabilization?
As EIR documented last year, BAE Systems, the British defense and aerospace giant, has used the "al-Yamamah" deal with Saudi Arabia, and other arms-for-oil barter deals with other countries, to build up a massive off-budget covert fund, which has been used to run British intelligence operations around the globe, since 1985. EIR's estimate is that al-Yamamah alone generated $100 billion in untraceable offshore funds to finance such operations.

In his authorized biography, The Prince, by William Simpson, Prince Bandar freely admitted that the al-Yamamah fund was a geopolitical covert program, involving Saudi Arabia and Great Britain, and that one of the covert programs run through the operation was the arming of Chad, to repel Libyan invaders.

Evidence related to the Duke Cunningham-MZM CIA contracting scandal was heard this morning in extraordinary secrecy by a panel of 6th Circuit Court of Appeals Judges in Pasedena. See, http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/state/20070805-9999-1m5secret.html

The extreme secrecy is highly unusual. Veteran lawyers could not remember another time when the appeals court held a completely closed hearing.

The subjects to be discussed are transcripts and documents related to the February guilty plea of Thomas Kontogiannis, a New York developer who admitted to a single count of money laundering in the Cunningham case. Kontogiannis' checkered past includes convictions for bribery and bid-rigging, an estimated $70 million fortune, and a knack for staying out of prison.


The reason this is being kept under wraps that is Greece, like Turkey, has been buying GOP Congressmen and CIA officials . . . with Saudi money, as part of an enormous multinational arms and political influence buying scheme being operated by the Saudi Royal Family in several western countries, particularly focused on the US and UK.

Thomas Kontogiannis' motives in bribing Cunningham has long been obscure. A month ago, it finally came out that Kontogiannis' interest in the matter was arms transfers to his native Greece. According to details that have slowly trickled out of the case, the Saudis are lurking in the background of this, apparently as bankers for the deal.

Mr. Kontogiannis was acting as an agent for the Greek military, which we are now told was seeking backroom business with General Dynamics and other U.S. defense contractors. See, http://news.aol.com/story/_a/disgraced-former-us-rep-duke-cunningham/n20070719164509990014

The lure of Saudi money appears to be key to these bribery and intelligence scandals, which also connects to the Valerie Plame mega-scandal and falsification of Iraq WMD intelligence by San Diego-based defense contractor, MZM.

This is just another side of the same scandal that snared Dennis Hastert, Jerry Lewis, and several dozen other Republican big-wigs and ranking members of various committees, along with the CIA #2, Dusty Foggo. This appears to be part of the American tie-in to the monster scandal in the UK involving BAE, a big British (and US) defense contractor, the Saudi Royal family, and an $80 billion slush fund, Yamamah ("The Dove", rhymes with "Ya mama"), which has been buying western politicians and intelligence services since the mid-1970s.

In 1976, CIA Director George Herbert Walker Bush first entered into an illegal deal with Saudi Intelligence Chief, Prince al-Turki, to continue covert Agency operations banned by Congress in exchange for Saudi money. In 1982, he was picked as Reagan's running mate, and, using Saudi funding, went on run a series of notorious "rogue" intelligence operations out of the Office of the Vice President. See, http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x1281780

This has been an ongoing conspiracy. Today, it also touches on the scandal surrounding the sudden firing early this year of US Attorney Carol Lam, who was forced out by AG Gonzales just two days after the arrest on February 13 of Dusty Foggo, chief lieutenant to CIA Director Porter Goss. Eight days later, Kontogiannis cut a deal with prosecutors in the Cunningham case, and was offered an unusually light sentence for his role in bribing the Congressman.

TPM Muckraker has been on-top of this story. Consider this Josh Marshall column from last March about Kontogianni and the connections which had then first emerged about MZM owner Mitchell Wade, and his partner, Brent Wilkes, have with corrupt elements of US intelligence and the Saudi Royals

Justin Rood fills in the answer to that last question, here http://www.tpmmuckraker.com/archives/000391.php


Cunningham, Felon Met With Saudi Crown Prince

By Justin Rood - April 17, 2006, 1:06 PM Over the weekend, a new profile by Copley News Service added to our understanding of former GOP Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham's "Co-conspirator #3," the mysterious Thomas Kontogiannis. Today, we can add a bit more. Recall that Kontogiannis bribed Cunningham through purchasing a yacht from the congressman -- and paying several hundred thousand dollars more than it was worth. His finance company also handled some of Cunningham's questionable mortgages. But reporters and investigators have struggled to understand what Kontogiannis was getting from Duke for all the money he spent on the lawmaker. The latest theory seems to be that Duke was introducing him to world leaders. As Copley reports:

Cunningham "introduced him to people. It was like he had a congressman on retainer," added.

The Copley story notes that he twice accompanied Cunningham to the White House, and kept a picture of himself meeting President Bush in his house. Now, TPMmuckraker has learned he apparently met the man who would shortly become king of Saudi Arabia. It's been known that Kontogiannis, a wealthy businessman and two-time felon, in 2004 accompanied Cunningham and a Saudi constituent, San Diego real estate mogul Ziyad Abduljawad, to Saudi Arabia. Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) also went. Abduljawad paid for the trip. Until now, we haven't known much about the trip -- who the group met with, why, what they talked about. Cunningham is said to have gone in order to promote U.S.-Saudi ties, or some other such pap. Beyond that, we've had nothing. I called Calvert last week to ask him more about the trip. (He's the only one of the crew who's talking these days: Cunningham's in the pen, Abduljawad declined an interview, Tommy K's lawyer doesn't return calls.) Calvert's memory wasn't perfect, but he had some details to share. The group met with Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah -- then the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, and now its king. Kontogiannis was at the meeting, Calvert recalled, although "he didn't say anything, as I remember," the lawmaker told me. Copley now tells us its sources say Tommy K's purpose "appeared to center on an oil business he owned in Europe." That's not much to go on. The group also met with "ministers of various government institutions within Saudi Arabia," Calvert said. He recalled Kontogiannis being present for "some" of those meetings. As for what was discussed, Calvert recalled only that a number of the ministers pressed Cunningham to help ease post-9/11 restrictions on student visas for Saudis. With Abdullah, Calvert said the discussion was "primarily social," and "trying to build a better relationship with the United States." Now a U.S. citizen, Kontogiannis is worth about $70 million, Copley reporter Joe Cantlupe tells us. He spent over $300,000 on Cunningham. "What Kontogiannis, 59, got from the relationship with Cunningham remains unclear," Cantlupe writes, but notes that the businessman visited the White House twice with the Duke. And now we know they visited the Saudi crown prince together also. Was that it? He bought Cunningham -- a well-positioned but hardly towering member of the U.S. House -- to meet world leaders?


Bottom-line: MZM-Cunningham appears to be part of the American side to the monster scandal involving multi-billion dollar kickbacks from defense contractors to the Saudi Royal family, which has been in turn buying western politicians and intelligence officials for decades.

Over the years, the Yamamah slush fund has bankrolled a series of Saudi black operations from Pakistan's nuclear program, to the BCCI rip-off, to the Iran-Contra operation, to the creation of al-Qaeda and political influence buying in the US and UK by various factions of the Royal family.
Every time the US and Britain puts together an arms deal with the Saudis, and now with third-countries such as Turkey and Greece, the overpricing and kickbacks funds a black program, often inside the US and Britain.


.....

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/state/20070805-9999-1m5secret.html

It is widely believed that Kontogiannis is cooperating with the government and will testify in an upcoming trial of Poway defense contractor Brent Wilkes and John Michael, who is Kontogiannis' nephew and is charged with conspiracy to bribe Cunningham, money laundering, three counts of unlawful monetary transactions and obstruction of justice.

Wilkes is accused of plying Cunningham and CIA official Kyle “Dusty” Foggo with bribes in return for lucrative contracts. Foggo and Wilkes are childhood friends from Chula Vista who were associates of the former Republican congressman.



“It's almost Orwellian double-speak,” said Gregg Leslie, the legal defense director for The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. “They say, 'We need secrecy, but the reason we need secrecy is also secret, so we can't tell you.' ”



There is so much payoff money flying around , but it seems they were funding the "hijacker" part at the very least. They never name the "two hijackers" that received the money. Only how they could have gotten it. The Riggs "Bank" is pretty obvious as a replacement for the CIA BCCI "bank"

December 4, 1999: Saudi Ambassador’s Wife Gives Funds that Are Possibly Passed to 9/11 Hijackers

Prince Bandar (pictures of his wife and Osama Basnan are not available). [Source: Publicity photo]Princess Haifa bint Faisal, the wife of Prince Bandar, the Saudi ambassador to the US, begins sending monthly cashier’s checks of between $2,000 and $3,500 (accounts differ) to Majeda Dweikat, the Jordanian wife of Osama Basnan, a Saudi living in San Diego. Accounts also differ over when the checks were first sent (between November 1999 and about March 2000; a Saudi government representative has stated December 4, 1999
Basnan’s wife signs many of the checks over to her friend Manal Bajadr, the wife of Omar al-Bayoumi. The payments are made through Riggs Bank, a bank which appears to have turned a blind eye to Saudi embassy transaction and also has longstanding ties to covert CIA operations (see July 2003).

Some later suggest that the money from the wife of the Saudi ambassador passes through the al-Bayoumi and Basnan families as intermediaries and ends up in the hands of the two hijackers. The payments from Princess Haifa continue until May 2002 and may total $51,000, or as much as $73,000.

While living in the San Diego area, al-Bayoumi and Basnan are heavily involved in helping with the relocation of, and offering financial support to, Saudi immigrants in the community

In late 2002, al-Bayoumi claims he did not pass any money along to the hijackers. [Washington Times, 12/4/2002] Basnan has variously claimed to know al-Bayoumi, not to know him at all, or to know him only vaguely. [ABC News, 11/25/2002; Arab News, 11/26/2002; ABC News, 11/26/2002; MSNBC, 11/27/2002] However, earlier reports say Basnan and his wife were “very good friends” of al-Bayoumi and his wife. Both couples lived at the Parkwood Apartments at the same time as the two hijackers; prior to that, the couples lived together in a different apartment complex. In addition, the two wives were arrested together in April 2001 for shoplifting

August 27, 2002: Close Relationship Between Saudi Ambassador and Bush Raises Questions  Prince Bandar, Saudi ambassador to the US, meets privately for more than an hour with President Bush and National Security Adviser Rice in Crawford, Texas. [Daily Telegraph, 8/28/2002] Press Secretary Ari Fleischer characterizes it as a warm meeting of old friends. Bandar, his wife Princess Haifa, and seven of their eight children stay for lunch.

July 2003: Saudi Embassy in US Found to Be Passing Money to Suspect Charities through US Bank that Has CIA Ties

In late 2002, US federal banking investigators began looking into transactions at Riggs Bank because of news reports that some money may have passed from the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington through Riggs Bank to the associates of two 9/11 hijackers in San Diego

But in July 2003, the probe expands as investigators discover irregularities involving tens of millions of dollars also connected to the Saudi embassy. The Wall Street Journal will later report, “Riggs repeatedly failed in 2001 and 2002 to file suspicious-activity reports related to cash transactions in the low tens of millions of dollars in Saudi accounts, said people familiar with the matter.” Riggs Bank “handles the bulk of [Washington’s] diplomatic accounts, a niche market that revolves around relationships and discretion.
Newsweek will later report that “investigators say the embassy accounts show a large commingling of funds with Islamic charities that have been the prime target of US probes.” In one instance, on July 10, 2001 the Saudi embassy sent $70,000 to two Saudis in Massachusetts. One of the Saudis wrote a $20,000 check that same day to a third Saudi who had listed the same address as Aafia Siddiqui, a microbiologist who is believed to have been a US-based operative for 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed
The Wall Street Journal will later discover that Riggs Bank “has had a longstanding relationship with the Central Intelligence Agency, according to people familiar with Riggs operations and US government officials” (see December 31, 2004). The relationship included top Riggs executives receiving US government security clearances. Riggs also overlooked tens of millions of dollars in suspicious transactions by right wing dictators from Africa and South America such as former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet.

Former Ptech Officer Arrested for SBA Loan Fraud
http://boston.fbi.gov/dojpressrel/pressrel09/bs071509.htm

Indictment Unsealed Charges Former Ptech President with Dealing in Assets of Specially Designated Global Terrorist

BOSTON—A former resident of Somerville, Mass. who has been living in South Korea was arrested today after arriving at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.

An indictment, originally returned on March 1, 2007, was unsealed today charging Buford George Peterson and Oussama Abdul Ziade, both former officers of Ptech, Inc., a computer software company that was principally located in Quincy, Mass., with making false statements to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in connection with a loan application in the amount of $650,000 for Ptech submitted under a program offered to assist small businesses economically harmed by the attacks of September 11, 2001. The indictment charges Peterson and Ziade with falsely representing the identities of Ptech’s major shareholders in this loan application to conceal the ownership interest in Ptech held by a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, Yassin Kadi aka Yassin Al-Kadi aka Yassin Al-Qadi aka Yassin Qadi (Kadi) through Sarmany Limited, a company Kadi owned and controlled. Ziade served as Ptech’s President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of its Board of Directors from February 1994 to 2003 while Peterson served as Ptech’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer from February 2001 to August 2002.

Acting U.S. Attorney Michael K. Loucks; Bruce M. Foucart, Special Agent in Charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement - Office of Investigations in Boston; Warren T. Bamford, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - Boston Field Office; and Susan Dukes, Special Agent in Charge of the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation - Boston Field Office, announced today that a seven-count indictment, originally returned on March 1, 2007, was unsealed charging Peterson and Ziade with making false statements to the SBA in Ptech’s loan application in January 2002 when they falsely represented the identity of the major stockholders of Ptech (those owning 20 percent or more of stock) by omitting in Ptech’s stock ownership table any reference to Sarmany Limited, a company owned and controlled by Kadi. The indictment also charges Ziade with engaging in transactions involving, and dealing in, the property of Kadi, a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, and making false statements to law enforcement during the investigation of Ptech.

According to the indictment, beginning in or about 1994 and continuing until or about 2001, Kadi, a Saudi Arabian national, invested approximately $10 million dollars in Ptech through companies he owned, controlled or in which he held a beneficial interest. On Oct. 12, 2001, pursuant to Executive Order 13224, entitled “Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism,” which was issued in response to the attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States government designated Kadi as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. As a result, any transaction involving, or dealing in, any interest in any property, direct or indirect, held by Kadi, and subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, was prohibited.

As of Oct. 12, 2001, the date of Kadi’s designation, Kadi owned and controlled a large percentage of Ptech common shares. The indictment alleges that “Kadi held that interest in the names of [foreign] entities he owned and controlled or in which he held a beneficial interest...  At the time of his designation, Ziade knew that Kadi held an interest in Ptech stock issued in the names of Kadi’s entities.” According to the indictment, “on or about Nov. 29, 2001, Ziade drafted a capitalization table identifying Kadi as the owner of approximately 9.9 million dollars worth of Ptech common shares, which had been issued by Ptech in the names of Kadi’s entities.” The indictment further alleges that Ziade “engaged in transactions designed in whole or in part to conceal the source and ownership of Ptech's assets and common stock.”    

If convicted on these charges, Peterson faces up to 30 years in prison, to be followed by five years of supervised release and a $1 million fine.

Also unsealed today was a criminal complaint issued on July 27, 2005 charging Ziade with attempting to engage in transactions involving, and dealing in, the property of Kadi, a Specially Designated Global Terrorist; knowingly making false statements to the SBA in a loan application submitted on behalf of Ptech; and making false statements to law enforcement. Ziade, a Lebanese national, has been living outside of the country since 2005.

If arrested and convicted of the charges in the indictment, Ziade also faces up to 30 years in prison, to be followed by five years supervised release and a $1 million fine.  

The case was jointly investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation. The Medford Police Department, Massachusetts State Police, U.S. Secret Service, Office of Foreign Asset Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury, and U.S. Small Business Administration also provided assistance in the investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys B. Stephanie Siegmann and Jeffrey Auerhahn of Loucks’ Anti-Terrorism and National Security Unit.

The details contained in the indictment are allegations. The defendants are presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.



Feds: Former Quincy execs hid ties to man on terror list
http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view/20090715feds_former_quincy_execs_hid_ties_to_man_on_terror_list/srvc=home&position=recent
By Associated Press Wednesday, July 15, 2009 - Added 1h ago  

Federal authorities have accused two former executives of a Massachusetts software company of concealing financial ties to a man on the government’s terrorism list. The Quincy office of PTech, Inc., was raided by federal agents in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. [ Indictments were unsealed Wednesday against PTech’s former chief executive, Oussama Ziade, and former chief financial officer Buford George Peterson. They are accused of trying to conceal in a loan application an approximately $10 million financial interest in the company held by Yassin Kadi (KAH’-dee). Kadi is a Saudi Arabian on the Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists. The U.S. Attorney’s office says Peterson was arrested Wednesday after arriving at New York’s Kennedy Airport. It wasn’t known if he has an attorney. Prosecutors said Ziade is living overseas. [Yeah in the House of Saud!]



Recent cyberattacks provide pretext for sweeping new Internet snooping powers by the government
http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_4898.shtml
By James Corbett Online Journal Guest Writer Jul 13, 2009, 00:24


On Friday, July 3, while most Americans were preparing for a weekend of fireworks and hot dogs, the Obama administration had an ominous message: they are going ahead with a Bush-era plan to allow the NSA even more power to invade, intercept and analyze the data of anyone visiting a government website, ostensibly to help prevent a major cyberattack.

The timing of the announcement -- the day before a long holiday weekend -- seemed unusual, but less than 24 hours later just such an attack began to unfold on a series of websites in America and South Korea, including those of the White House, Pentagon, New York Stock Exchange, Treasury Department, Secret Service and Washington Post, amongst others.

The attack itself turns out to have been fairly innocuous -- a run of the mill DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack that did not even employ the latest malware, but you wouldn’t know that from reading the sensational reporting in the controlled corporate media. The VOA reports that the ‘Internet attackers’ have struck again. US State Department under cyberattack for fourth day blares a headline from the AFP.

Blame for the attack is now falling on North Korea, but what North Korea has to gain by taking down The Washington Post’s website is anybody’s guess (perhaps Kim Jong-il was giving his own pronouncement on the recent revelation that the Post was selling access to high-level politicians to lobbyists for $250,000 a pop). The big winner in this attack, it seems, is the federal government, which has been preparing to unveil an Internet surveillance spy grid for years, but has virtually no mandate to do so from a public that has become tired of invasive government snooping.

Various government stooges have been trying to drum up support for their Orwellian police state fantasy for years by warning of the coming ‘cybergeddon’ at the hands of ‘cyber terrorists.’ In 2003, former National Security Agency (NSA) Director Mike McConnell was going on international fear mongering trips, warning of attacks “equivalent to the attack on the World Trade Center in New York” unless a new agency were created to deal with the threat. The ‘cyber 9-11’ meme has carried on ever since, with hysterical coverage of Chinese cyber warriors and teenage hackers, attempting to rally the public into supporting a new front in the War on Terror: cyberspace.

Of course, exactly as was the case of 9/11, which was used as a pretext for introducing and passing (before anyone had time to read it) the voluminous, labyrinthine, constitution-destroying USAPATRIOT Act, so too will the ‘cyber 911’ be used to justify an iPATRIOT Act that will destroy any vestige of legal red tape preventing the government from tracking, tracing and controlling every movement of every citizen in cyberspace forever.

That this legislation exists and is, in fact, merely waiting for a large cyberterrorist incident to justify rushing it into law was actually admitted last year by former Counter Terrorism Czar Richard Clarke to Lawrence Lessig. “I was having dinner with Richard Clarke and I asked him if there is an equivalent [to the USAPATRIOT Act],” Lessig recounted to a technology conference in California last year. “Is there an i-PATRIOT Act just sitting waiting for some substantial event as an excuse to radically change the way the Internet works. He said, ‘Of course there is.’”

The three prongs of the attack on Internet freedom and privacy come from the military, the NSA and the Executive/Legislative branches of government. In 2003, the military labeled the Internet itself an enemy weapons system and ever since then there has been growing momentum behind various military, intelligence and governmental schemes to track and trace all movements of all Internet users, American or foreign. Last year, the Air Force attempted to establish its own cyber command, resulting in military turf wars that spawned last month a new U.S. Cyber Command and the further militarization of cyberspace. The military has even threatened a military response against any would-be hackers of government systems (unless you are North Korean, evidently).

At the same time, the NSA is jockeying to launch a new system dubbed Einstein that would see all telecoms route data traveling to or from government networks through an NSA monitoring box. This is on top of existing programs like Pinwale and Stellar Wind, which have already given them legal access to secretly spy on billions of communications records. Now Mike McConnell is back on the fear mongering trail telling anyone who will listen that if the NSA doesn’t have the authority to examine everyone’s search history, private emails and file transfers, then there will be a (you guessed it) “cyber 9/11.”

The third prong of the attack comes from America’s own elected representatives. Even back in 2007 the powerful think tank known as the Center for Strategic and International Studies was already preparing for the coming Obama presidency, convening a yearlong panel that issued a report called Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency, which contained the following chilling passage under the heading Regulate cyberspace: “Voluntary action is not enough. The United States must assess and prioritize risks and set minimum standards for securing cyberspace in order to ensure that the delivery of critical services in cyberspace continues if the United States is attacked.”

Now, Jay Rockefeller is attempting to do just that with a bill that would kick start this process of setting ‘minimum standards’ for cybersecurity over to an advisory panel filled with globalists, corporate chieftains and hand-picked academics. Rockefeller tried to drum up his own support for the bill by reaching new heights of hysterical fear mongering over the Net, even going so far as to say the Internet should never have existed. Obama is getting in on the act as well, threatening to pick a new ‘cyber czar’ who is conspicuous for having taken every opportunity during his time in Congress to vote for the expansion of NSA spying programs and authorities.

The entire cyberterror hysteria seems to have reached a peak in the last month, with the announcement of U.S. Cyber Command, the impending vote on Rockefeller’s bill and the naming of Obama’s cyber czar expected to occur in the near future.

Up until last week, there has only been one problem: there has been no clear mandate for any of this hysterical rush toward increased government snooping and regulation on the Internet. The American public is becoming disgusted with Obama’s continuation of the NSA spying program and has been unwilling to get behind giving up their online liberties in exchange for protection from the threat of teenage hackers and Russian spambots. The former head of the National Cybersecurity Center resigned this March citing “threats to the democratic process from the NSA’s attempts to dominate all governmental cybersecurity efforts. Wired even ran a story detailing how the U.S. Cyber Command is an agency without a purpose, function or mission that has been trying to find a reason for existing.

Now along comes a relatively unsophisticated DDOS attack from what may or may not be North Korea (there is no proof for the origin of the attack other than the government’s say-so) and suddenly it all seems justified: the creation of new branches of the military to deal with cyberwarfare and even create sophisticated new cyberweapons for destroying hackers and rogue governments; the NSA programs to track and trace all searches, file transfers and communications of seemingly everyone on the planet; Rockefeller’s legislation to appoint big business and globalists to advise on mandatory communications regulations. It seems that Obama and the NSA have more to gain from these attacks than do the North Koreans.

Of course, the capability (and presumably the intention) to monitor every electronic communication passing through the United States in real time has long existed. What we are seeing now is the revelation of long-established policies and technologies to a public that may have rejected them before. The Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA) of 1994 already mandated that every communications device in the country be accessible by law enforcement, and it has now been mainstream news for years that the FBI can (and has) dialed into cellphones to listen in on any conversations taking place within reach of the microphone . . . even if the power is turned off. In 2006, an AT&T whistleblower revealed an NSA spy room directly in the data hub monitoring every email, every phone call and every fax traveling through that hub. In 2008, it was admitted that part of the NSA’s efforts to catch Al-CIAda included agents passing around particularly humorous phone sex conversations between US military overseas and their wives back home.

No, the capability of spying on all communications of all Americans is not being developed now; that has already happened. Right now we are witnessing the implementation of the phase in which the capability to track and trace all communications are being introduced to the public and justified on the grounds of national security. Expect to see an increasing number of media-hyped “cyberattack” stories before the cyber 9/11 makes the iPATRIOT Act a reality.

Of course, it should be obvious by now that those in charge of multi-billion dollar agencies are in positions to directly materially benefit from just such large, stunning cyberattacks, opening the door to the false-flag mentality by which attacks are to be welcomed for their transformative nature. Certainly the NSA is not building a $1.6 billion data center to sit on their hands waiting for an attack, nor are the governments of the UK, Canada, Ireland and many other countries suddenly considering draconian new e-spying legislation for the fun of it.

For those who are interested in how a false-flag cyber terrorist attack could be generated, the PTech story remains a crucial piece of the puzzle. The technology exists for those in the know to commit sophisticated, convincing and devastating attacks through the government’s own cyber infrastructure. The only question is who has the means, motive and opportunity to use it.

FBI’s role in 9/11 investigation needs investigation
http://www.madcowprod.com/mc4522004.html

"The project included incident investigation, law enforcement, military aviation systems, highly sensitive information, especially if you wanted to exploit the FAA’s current capabilities and holes… to jam or slow down U.S. military response to a domestic hijacking, for example.”

Just the portion of the story above the waterline and already public record is shocking enough:

Briefly, Saudi “money man” Yasin al-Qadi, named by the Bush Administration as a financial backer of the al-Qaeda terrorist network, had funded a software start-up in Boston named Ptech, reported the Boston Globe over a year ago.

 Al-Qadi, a Saudi businessman whose US assets were frozen after the Sept. 11 attacks amid allegations that he has funded terrorist groups, is from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he also headed the Saudi-based Muwafaq (Blessed Relief) Foundation.

Treasury officials allege the “charity” is an al-Qaeda front used to funnel millions of dollars to the terrorist organization, and Al-Qadi was named a Specially Designated Global Terrorist by the United States on October 12, 2001. A US Treasury Department statement stated that "Muwafaq is an Al-Qaeda front that receives funding from wealthy Saudi businessmen"
"Somebody musta paid Osama for the heroin."

But it’s the unreported story that has the potential to lead to the explosive charge that the FBI’s role in the 9/11 investigation itself needs investigation.

Ptech’s customers included sensitive government and intelligence agencies such as the FBI and the Air Force. “But until last fall,” the GLOBE reported on Jan. 22, 2003, “few seemed aware an early financial backer of Ptech was Yasin al-Qadi, a Saudi businessman named as a suspected terrorist financier by the Bush Administration in October 2001.”

Reports of ineptitude at FBI headquarters have already surfaced in numerous places: in Phoenix, Chicago, and Minneapolis, for example. What makes reports of the Boston FBI’s bungled investigation into Ptech different is the unmistakably dark suggestion that this poor performance may have been intentional.

Why would the Boston FBI do such a thing? Maybe because they were shielding a money laundering vehicle, goes the allegation, that was created back in the 1980's as part of the CIA’s program of arming the Afghan mujahedeen.

Can you say BCCI? .

The tale begins almost right after the 9/11 attack, when, in October of 2001, handful of ex-Ptech employees alerted the FBI to evidence indicating that the firm had Saudi terror connections.
    

  
 


Saudi terrorists, Saudi money, and JP Morgan Chase

Almost a year later the Boston FBI had still done nothing about it. They had, in fact, shut down their cursory investigation and taken no action.  

Thus Ptech was still operating at the highest levels of American society in the Spring of 2002,  when the firm showed up hustling business at the door of Wall Street’s JP Morgan Chase. The question is “why?”

On its surface, the answer appears to be “money.” Lots and lots of Saudi money.

Indira Singh, who later became a whistleblower, was an unwitting eyewitness to the “train wreck.”  

 “I invited Ptech to come down and give a presentation and a customized demo to JP Morgan Chase,” states Singh, who was a consultant to the bank on “risk architecture,” an arcane software specialty which calculates enterprise risk. In one of the story’s many ironic twists, Singh was at the time designing a system to help JP Morgan Chase detect terrorist money laundering.

When Ptech showed up, Singh quickly realized that she was witnessing her worst fears about compromised security come true.  “Within half an hour on the premises, I knew something was up,” she says. “They had almost immediately raised about six of my red flags, to the point where I walked over to my desk and picked up the phone, and began making phone calls.”

She talked with a respected industry figure who had once worked at Ptech. “He was shocked to learn that I had invited Ptech on the premises. He told me the company belonged to Yasin Qadi.”

In the course of what would otherwise have been just another day at the bank, Indira Singh made the amazing discovery that the firm in front of her at the moment was owned by Saudis, including Yasin Qadi, with suspected as well as proven ties to the terrorists who carried out the 9/11 attack.

All this left her feeling more than a little surprised.
 

'Chief Thug' at J.P. Morgan Chase

Moreover, she learned, Yasin Al-Qadi had been fingered by the Bush Administration in October 2001, over six months before.  So how was it that Ptech was still making presentations to top American companies six months later?  

The industry source Singh had consulted on Ptech had more bad news than just Yasin Qadi. “There were several people at Ptech who were targets of Operation Greenquest, a Dept of Treasury terrorism investigation,” she told us, “and that the company’s funding vehicle, BMI, was also under investigation. The list just went on and on and on. It was a spider’s web of connections.”

When Singh flew to Washington D.C. to meet some of the ex-Ptech employees to verify their allegations, she received another shock. “I met with five extraordinarily scared people. These people were scared for their lives, and for their families. Some were about to leave the country. They told me, ‘Indira, you don’t know who you’re dealing with.’

Sadly, when she told us what happened next, it came as no surprise:  When Singh alerted authorities, and her employer, what she encountered was the inexplicable wrath of a top Wall Street Bank, as well as an official wall of silence at the FBI.

“I took everything I had at that point back to my boss at JP Morgan Chase,” she states. “He didn’t want to deal with it. So I called his boss,  because at this point I realized I was sitting on dynamite.”

“The various heads of the security functions at the bank set up an interview with me, and it quickly  escalated to the bank’s General Auditor, who introduced himself to me as JP Morgan Chase’s ‘chief thug.’”


We didn’t know banks like JP Morgan had thugs, we said.

“He introduced himself as the General Auditor,” said Singh, “but he said, for the real purposes of what he does at JP Morgan Chase, I am the ‘chief thug.’”

“He basically told me to keep my mouth shut and look the other way, and enjoy a wonderful life here at JP Morgan, and if I didn’t I was out.”

Alerting the bosses at one of America’s largest banks to a terror threat had certainly produced a strange result. Singh had entered a hall of mirrors, especially after she discovered that the terrorist threat was real.
 

A 'problem' with the Boston FBI

“By that time, I had already talked with my boss’s boss, to whom I had originally gone,” she says. “He told me, it was all true. He said, ‘everything you laid out on the table was true.’”

When attempts to intimidate her into silence failed, she became another American hero speaking out despite the consequences, which will be described in a future report.

After talking to the Boston FBI, Singh said she had been ''shocked'' and ''frustrated'' to learn that the FBI had not alerted any of the government agencies using Ptech software that there were questions about the company's ties to suspected terrorist fund-raisers.

The story is just the latest in a series of embarrassments for the Boston FBI office, including the scandal over the agency's coddling of murderous organized crime informants, which led to an until-now inexplicable threat by President Bush to use “executive privilege” to cloak details about the Boston FBI from Congressional investigators.

Still, when we first heard whistleblower Indira Singh tell her story it sounded so incredible that we would have found it unbelievable…except that we had already encountered stories like it in Venice, of witnesses bullied and intimidated by authorities into silence.

For example, the FBI was all over tenants at the Sandpiper Apartments across the street from the Venice Airport, to keep them from talking about Mohamed Atta’s two-month long ‘shack-up’ with an American girlfriend named Amanda Keller.

In addition to warning Keller not to talk, a warning she took so seriously she left town and disappeared from view, FBI agents bullied and intimidated apartment residents who remembered the pair, and even the apartment manager of the complex, Charles Grapentine, an ex-marine, who told us grimly, "They called me a liar, and told me to keep my mouth shut. Nobody likes to hear that: that they didn't see something they know they saw.”

Atta and Amanda’s next door neighbor, a 50-year old housewife named Stephanie Frederickson, confirmed the apartment manager’s remarks.

"The question they asked was always the same," she told us. "You aren’t saying anything to anybody, are you?"

Now, it seems that FBI agents in Boston were engaged in equally-dubious behavior. Mistakes, malfeasance, and even missed opportunities to avert the Sept 11 attack… There’s been a regular drumbeat of depressing news about the FBI.

Singh told us that disgruntled Boston FBI agents told her privately that their hands were tied on Ptech, because, they said, “Saudis have been given a free pass for 9/11.”

“And that,” says Singh, “is when I began to get really scared.”
 

we need one

The PTech connection?
http://thephoenix.com/Portland/News/72381-PTech-connection/
By DAVID S. BERNSTEIN  |  November 24, 2008



Between late 2002 and early 2003, the now defunct Fleet Bank in Boston attracted the attention of federal anti-terrorist investigators. The investigators were seeking to disrupt the flow of cash to Islamists suspected of plotting violence.

Over the course of three months, 20 Fleet Bank accounts were shut as part of that effort. One of those belonged to Aafia Siddiqui, a 1995 MIT graduate well-known among many in Greater Boston's Muslim community.

The Pakistan-born Siddiqui has since achieved international notoriety. Siddiqui was captured this summer in Afghanistan and was this week found mentally unfit for trial, where she faced a staggering array of charges. In plain language, those charges allege her to have been a kingpin of international terror finance. FBI Director Robert Mueller called Siddiqui an al-Qaeda operative. The CIA said her arrest was "the most significant capture in five years" of the war on terror.

Siddiqui's Boston ties, and the allegations that she was using Fleet Bank to finance and arm terrorists, made local headlines.

The identities of most of the other targeted Fleet customers remain unknown — except for reports that at least five of those accounts were held by employees of a small Boston-area software company called PTech. PTech itself was raided by federal authorities on suspicion of terrorist-funding ties in December 2002.

One PTech employee was very public about his allegations that federal investigators had shut down his and other PTech workers' accounts unfairly, and from purely anti-Arab motivations. He is Hassan Aljabri — now the president of the Roxbury mosque's board of directors.

Aljabri gave nearly $50,000 to the mosque between 2000 and 2002. He was one of several PTech employees who were actively involved with the mosque, including the company's CEO, who donated more than $10,000.

PTech's chief architect, Suheil Laher, is the long-serving Muslim chaplain at MIT. Although he holds no title with the Islamic Society of Boston or the Muslim American Society of Boston (MAS-Boston), Laher is active in both. He is also closely related by marriage to Anwar Kazmi, who has been the mosque's primary local fundraising coordinator, and Salma Kazmi, who until last year was the spokesperson and assistant director for the project.

Also working at PTech, as network administrator, was Saladin Ali-Salaam — son of Muhammad Ali-Salaam, the Boston Redevelopment Authority employee who played a key role in the mosque's development.

No charges were brought against PTech.

Federal authorities, however, have not stepped back their claims that PTech was largely funded by Yassin al-Kadi, a person the federal government considers a "specially designated terrorist."

Aljabri and the others whose accounts were closed were not charged with crimes.

Community complaints led the state's then–attorney general, Thomas Reilly, to investigate Fleet's action in closing the accounts.

The attorney general's investigation concluded that the accounts were closed for proper reasons, not due to discrimination.

MAS-Boston's executive director, Bilal Kaleem, calls the PTech raid and the closing of the PTech employees' bank accounts examples of "post-9/11 fears gone wild."

But at least three individuals connected with PTech have faced charges or accusations of aiding terrorists. Two of those individuals were convicted of related charges.

PTech board member Suliman Buheiri was convicted in 2005 in Virginia federal court, and served 13 months, in relation with business he did with HAMAS leader Mousa Abu Marzook.

PTech employee Muhamed Mubayyid was convicted this year in Boston federal court, and is currently in federal custody, for charges relating to his role with Care International, a Brighton-based organization (not affiliated with the larger, better-known charity CARE International).

Federal prosecutors claim that the nonprofit solicited and distributed money "supporting and promoting Islamic holy war" across the globe from 1999 to 2003. Laher also worked at Care, but was never implicated in any wrongdoing.

Yakub Mirza, a PTech investor and advisory board member, has been accused in a 2003 FBI affidavit of leading a network funneling money to Islamic terrorist groups.

Neither collectively nor individually do these cases suggest a vast conspiracy. What they do suggest is something that was going on in Boston, unbeknownst to most of us, in late 2002 — which was, after all, a year after terrorists flew airplanes out of Logan Airport and into the World Trade Center.

Fleet Bank was tracking accounts of suspected terrorist funders. Federal agents were preparing to raid PTech, and were building a case against Care International. Nets were closing around others suspected of terrorist links, who had passed through or had connections with Boston.

And, at the same time, the Roxbury mosque was heading toward final city approval. In fact, the groundbreaking with Mayor Thomas Menino took place just weeks before the PTech raid.

It is perhaps not surprising, in the relatively small Muslim population of Boston, that some of these circles overlapped, and in some cases continue to overlap. Critics have pointed to this overlap with suspicion, suggesting that extremists are infiltrating the mosque leadership. Mosque supporters have warned against assigning guilt by association.

By CURT ANDERSON, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - An investigation into al-Qaida's financial backers led federal agents to a Massachusetts software firm whose customers include the FBI (news - web sites), Air Force and Navy as well as several Fortune 500 companies.

Agents from the Customs Service, FBI, Internal Revenue Service (news - web sites) and other agencies, armed with a search warrant, went to the Quincy, Mass., offices of Ptech Inc. late Thursday to look for information on Yasin al-Qadi, officials said Friday.

Al-Qadi is on a Treasury Department (news - web sites) list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists, whose assets the United States wants frozen.

No arrests were made, but agents recovered evidence from Ptech, which consented to the search. Officials would not specify what was found. U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan of Boston said the search involved "an ongoing financial crime investigation" but said an affidavit supporting the warrant was sealed by court order.

Al-Qadi, who is from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, heads the Saudi-based Muwafaq (Blessed Relief) Foundation, which Treasury officials allege is an al-Qaida front used to funnel millions of dollars to the global terror organization.

Federal law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said al-Qadi once was a major investor in Ptech. They want to know whether al-Qadi still has a relationship with the company and whether information from the search could lead to other entities with which he was involved.

Joseph Johnson, vice president of professional services at Ptech, said al-Qadi has no ties to the company but "may have had something to do with it nine years ago," when the company started.

"There isn't anything going on here," Johnson said. "We're a small software company. What we do doesn't give us access to information that is top secret."

Ptech provides sophisticated financial tracking and budgeting software to big companies and to numerous government agencies, including the FBI, Energy Department, Air Force, Navy, NATO (news - web sites), IRS and U.S. House. Business clients include IBM, Weyerhauser and Aetna, according to the company Web site.

The software is not involved in classified areas but handles sensitive government data.

The company's software code was checked by the government to determine if outsiders could read or steal any sensitive data from the government, or embed the code with something destructive, officials said. Those checks began months ago, when the probe of Ptech started.

"The material has been reviewed by the appropriate government agencies, and they have detected absolutely nothing in their reports to the White House that would lead to any concern," said White House spokesman Ari Fleischer (news - web sites).

No one answered the door or the phone Friday at the home of the company's chairman and chief executive officer, Oussama Ziade. A man who answered the phone at the home of vice president Hussein Ibrahim said Ibrahim was unavailable. Neither Ziade nor Ibrahim appear on any government lists of suspected terrorists.

Public records in Massachusetts say Ptech has ties to BMI Inc., a now-defunct Secaucus, N.J., company that law enforcement officials also have linked to al-Qadi. Johnson said he had no knowledge of a BMI connection; the records show BMI financed Ptech computer and telephone equipment during the 1990s.

The investigation is part of a broader Customs-led program known as "Operation Green Quest," a multiagency task force that has served 114 search warrants in the past 14 months involving suspected terrorist financing networks. The effort has resulted in 50 arrests, 28 indictments and the seizure of about $27.4 million, Customs officials said.

1996: Vulgar Betrayal Investigation Launched

Vulgar Betrayal, the most significant US government investigation into terrorist financing before 9/11, is launched. This investigation grows out of investigations Chicago FBI agent Robert Wright had begun in 1993 (see After January 1993), and Wright appears to be the driving force behind Vulgar Betrayal. He later will say, “I named the case Vulgar Betrayal because of the many gross betrayals many Arab terrorists and their supporters” committed against the US, but the name will later prove to be bitterly ironic for him. Over a dozen FBI agents are assigned it and a grand jury is empanelled to hear evidence. Wright will be removed from the investigation in late 1999 (see August 3, 1999), and it will be completely shut down in early 2000 (see August 2000). [Federal News Service, 6/2/2003; Chicago Tribune, 8/22/2004; LA Weekly, 8/25/2004; Judicial Watch, 12/15/2004] The investigation will first identify suspected terrorism financier Yassin al-Qadi as a target in 1997, but it will run into many obstacles in investigating him and others. Assistant US attorney Mark Flessner, the lead prosecutor for Vulgar Betrayal, will later claim that supervisors at the Justice Department’s headquarters obstructed the investigation because it appeared to trace terrorism financing to important figures in Saudi Arabia, a key US ally. Wright will later state that had the leads into al-Qadi and others been fully investigated, “I believe the FBI could have identified other significant links to Osama bin Laden, links which may have been addressed to prevent future attacks against the United States by bin Laden and his terrorist trainees.” [Federal News Service, 6/2/2003; Chicago Tribune, 8/22/2004]

April 1998: FBI Agent Stifles Investigation into Ptech Figures

FBI agent Robert Wright will later recall that at this time, he is pleasantly surprised when FBI management provides his Vulgar Betrayal investigation with a 10 year veteran agent to assist with his efforts. According to Wright, the unnamed agent is assigned to “investigate a company and its 20-plus subsidiaries which were linked to a major financer of international terrorism.” However, Wright and fellow agent John Vincent will soon become dismayed when they realize the agent is not actually doing any work. He merely shuffles papers to look busy when people walk by. He will continue to do no work on this important assignment until the Vulgar Betrayal investigation is effectively shut down one year later (see August 3, 1999). Wright will claim in 2003, “The important assignment he was given involved both the founder and the financier of Ptech.” Presumably these could be references to Oussama Ziade, the president and chief founder of Ptech, and Yassin al-Qadi, apparently Ptech’s largest investor.

Early 1999-March 21, 2000: Muslim FBI Agent Refuses to Wear Wire in Meeting with BMI Head; FBI Infighting Follows

Gamal Abdel-Hafiz. [Source: Charles Ommanney]
Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, the only Muslim FBI agent in the years just prior to 9/11, becomes involved in FBI agent Robert Wright’s Vulgar Betrayal investigation in early 1999. An accountant working for BMI Inc., an investment firm with connections to many suspected terrorism financiers (see 1986-October 1999), tells Abdel-Hafiz that he is worried that BMI funds had helped fund the 1998 US embassy bombings in Africa (see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998). BMI president Soliman Biheiri hears that Abdel-Hafiz had been told about this, and wants to meet with him to discuss it (apparently without realizing that Abdel-Hafiz is an undercover FBI agent). Wrights asks Abdel-Hafiz to wear a wire to the meeting, but Abdel-Hafiz refuses to do so. This leads to infighting within the FBI. On July 6, 1999, Abdel-Hafiz files a religious discrimination complaint, accusing Wright of making derogatory comments to fellow agents. [Frontline, 10/16/2003] On March 21, 2000, Wright makes a formal internal complaint about Abdel-Hafiz. FBI agent Barry Carmody seconds Wright’s complaint. Wright and Carmody accuse Abdel-Hafiz of hindering investigations by openly refusing to record other Muslims. In an affidavit, Wright claims that Abdel-Hafiz refused to wear the wire “based on religious reasons saying, ‘A Muslim doesn’t record another Muslim.’” Abdel-Hafiz does not deny the quote, but claims it was taken out of context. [Wall Street Journal, 11/26/2002; ABC News, 12/19/2002; Frontline, 10/16/2003] Federal prosecutor Mark Flessner and other FBI agents back up the allegations against Abdel-Hafiz. [ABC News, 12/19/2002] Carmody will also claim that, in a different investigation, Abdel-Hafiz hindered an inquiry into the possible ties to Islamic militants of fired University of South Florida Professor Sami al-Arian by refusing to record a conversation with the professor in 1998. [Tampa Tribune, 3/4/2003] Complaints to superiors and headquarters about Abdel-Hafiz never get a response. [Fox News, 3/6/2003] “Far from being reprimanded, in February 2001 Abdel-Hafiz [is] promoted to one of the FBI’s most important anti-terrorism posts, the American Embassy in Saudi Arabia, to handle investigations for the FBI in that Muslim country.” [ABC News, 12/19/2002; Frontline, 10/16/2003] In 2003, FBI agent John Vincent will complain, “Five different FBI field divisions complained of this agent’s activities, and the FBI headquarters response was to promote him to a sensitive position in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.” [Federal News Service, 6/2/2003] Abdel-Hafiz will be suspended in February 2003 over charges that he faked a break-in of his own house in order to collect $25,000 in insurance benefits and then failed an FBI polygraph test when asked about it. In January 2004, the FBI’s Disciplinary Review Board will reinstate him after deciding there was insufficient evidence in the case. [Tampa Tribune, 3/4/2003; Frontline, 10/16/2003]

----------------------------------------------
 
August 3, 1999: Wright Removed from Vulgar Betrayal Investigation

Chicago FBI agent Robert Wright is abruptly removed from the Vulgar Betrayal investigation into terrorism financing (see 1996). The entire investigation apparently winds down without his involvement, and will shut down altogether in 2000 (see August 2000). A New York Post article will state, “[T]he official reason was a fear that Wright’s work would disrupt FBI intelligence-gathering. My sources find this dubious: After years of monitoring these individuals, the bureau had likely learned all it could.… [But] conversations with FBI personnel indicate that he was told informally that his work was too embarrassing to the Saudis. In support of this is the fact that Wright was shut down as he seemed to be closing in on Yassin al-Qadi.” [Washington Post, 5/11/2002; New York Post, 7/14/2004] Wright later will claim that a reason he is given for being taken off the investigation is a recent dispute he is having with a Muslim FBI agent who refuses to wear a wire (see Early 1999-March 21, 2000). [Federal News Service, 6/2/2003] He is also accused of sexually harassing a female FBI agent. This charge is investigated and later dropped. [Chicago Tribune, 8/22/2004] Wright is removed from counterterrorism work altogether and remains that way at least through early 2002. [Associated Press, 3/15/2002] In September 1999, he will hire Chicago lawyer David Schippers, famed as House investigative counsel in the Clinton impeachment, to help fight the closure of the investigation. Although Schippers is known as an enemy of President Clinton, Wright will say, “I’m confident President Clinton had absolutely nothing to do with the lack of support and eventual closure of the Vulgar Betrayal investigation.” [Federal News Service, 6/2/2003; CNN, 6/19/2003]

August 2000: Vulgar Betrayal Investigation Shut Down

Frances Townsend. [Source: White House]
Vulgar Betrayal, the most significant US government investigation into terrorist financing before 9/11, shuts down. FBI agent Robert Wright launched the investigation in 1996 (see 1996) and was removed from the investigation in late 1999 (see August 3, 1999). Apparently the investigation accomplished little after Wright’s departure. [LA Weekly, 8/25/2004; Judicial Watch, 12/15/2004; Robert G. Wright, Jr., v. Federal Bureau of Investigation, 5/16/2005] A March 2000 affidavit named Yassin al-Qadi as a source of terrorist funds in Chicago, but no charges are brought against him. [ABC News, 12/19/2002] Mark Flessner, an assistant US attorney assigned to Vulgar Betrayal in 1996, later will recall, “Vulgar Betrayal was a case where the FBI’s intelligence agents would not cooperate with the criminal agents trying to put these guys in jail. They refused to let us arrest them. They only wanted to watch them conduct their business.” He will also claim that Frances Townsend, a Justice Department official working a variety of posts, helps close down the investigation. He will say Townsend did not share information but “deliberately obstructed it. And I found that very disconcerting.” He will claim that she completely supports FBI intelligence agents and refuses to share their information with the Vulgar Betrayal investigation. A federal grand jury was impaneled in 1996 to support Vulgar Betrayal, but without the information from FBI intelligence, Flessner did not have enough evidence to return indictments. “I couldn’t even get permission to do the basic things you do, such as collecting phone numbers from their targets’ incoming and outgoing calls, and addresses from their mail.” With the shut down of the investigation in 2000, Flessner will resign from the Justice Department in frustration. After 9/11, Townsend will be appointed President Bush’s Homeland Security Adviser and counterterrorism director for the National Security Council. [LA Weekly, 8/25/2004]

February-March 2001: Politicians Warned about Terrorism Funding in US

In September 1999, FBI agent Robert Wright hired David Schippers as his lawyer to represent him in his troubles with the FBI (see August 3, 1999). Schippers was the House Judiciary Committee’s chief investigator in the Clinton impeachment trial. Schippers later will claim that at this time he begins contacting congresspeople that he knows from the impeachment trial with concerns about terrorism. He later recalls, “I was talking primarily about the infiltration of Hamas [inside the US]—how they’re moving the money. I have evidence on that. I have all kinds of material.” In an obvious reference to the Vulgar Betrayal investigation, he also will assert that he knew US intelligence had “established the sources of the money flow of bin Laden” as early as 1996, but by 1999 had faced high-level obstructions into investigating these matters. But he will claim, “I couldn’t get anybody to talk to me.” [WorldNetDaily, 10/21/2001; Ahmed, 2004, pp. 258-260] Schippers later claims he will continue to warn politicians about terrorism funding in the US, while also warning them about a potential al-Qaeda attack on lower Manhattan based on information he will receive in May 2001 (see May 2001; July-Late August 2001).

------------------------------------------------
 
May 2001: Clinton Impeachment Lawyer Learns About Al-Qaeda Manhattan Attack Warning

David Schippers, the House Judiciary Committee’s chief investigator in the Clinton impeachment trial, was hired to represent FBI agent Robert Wright in September 1999 (see August 3, 1999). After 9/11, Schippers will claim that he began privately informing congresspeople about Wright’s investigation into terrorism financing in the US in early 2001, but found little interest (see February-March 2001). Schippers appears to have had different sources than Wright who began telling him about attack warnings. Supposedly, the first warning was based on a secret February 1995 report which stated that bin Laden was planning three attacks on the US: the bombing of a federal building in the heartland of the US, shooting down or blowing up an airplane, and a massive attack in lower Manhattan. Schippers believes the first warning was a prediction of the April 1995 Oklahoma City bombing (see April 19, 1995) and the second was a prediction of the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800 (see July 17, 1996-September 1996). In some versions of this warning, the Manhattan attack was meant to be caused by a “dirty bomb” - explosives mixed with radioactive materials - but other accounts described the use of planes as weapons instead. He says one of his sources for this early warning was Yossef Bodansky, director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare. Schippers will claim that his sources continued to uncover further information. The Manhattan warning “had started out just a general threat, but they narrowed it and narrowed it, more and more with time,” until the “same people who came out with the first warning” tell him in May 2001 that “an attack on lower Manhattan is imminent.” Schippers speaks to several FBI agents directly, and hears that “there are [other agents] all over the country who are frustrated and just waiting to come out.” They are frustrated by “a bureaucratic elite in Washington short-stopping information,” which gives “terrorism a free reign in the United States.” Schippers later claims that some FBI agents later told him that before 9/11, “they had [Mohamed] Atta in their sights.” They also had attempted to “check out” the names and activities of “very strange characters training at flight schools.” He will claim that “FBI agents in Chicago and Minnesota” tell him “there [is] going to be an attack on lower Manhattan.” Schippers will later claim that he will attempt to contact Attorney General John Ashcroft and other politicians about this warning in coming months, but that they will show little interest (see July-Late August 2001). [WorldNetDaily, 10/21/2001; Indianapolis Star, 5/18/2002; Ahmed, 2004, pp. 258-260]

SECOND SAUDI WITH POSSIBLE LINK TO TERROR TIED TO PTECH
http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1P2-7763215.html
The Boston Globe (Boston, MA) | January 21, 2003


A second Saudi Arabian businessman with apparent ties to an organization alleged to have funded terrorism is listed in corporate filings as a director of a key early investor in Ptech, the Quincy software company searched by federal investigators last month.

Ptech came under scrutiny chiefly because of the role of an early financial backer, Yasin al-Qadi. He helped run a charity, the Muwafaq Foundation, that the Bush administration has alleged financed Al Qaeda, the terror organization. Al-Qadi, who has denied being connected to terrorism, previously served as a director of Ptech investor ...

   I just heard about this story on the radio the other night, and it's mindboggling, at least as much from the standpoint that it's probably WORSE than the Sible Edmonds tale, AND that it's not being discussed much here

I can't believe I haven't seen it discussed here, or am I just going senile?

LOOK at this, from two friking years ago, almost!

Mr. JOE BERGANTINO (Reporter, WBZ-TV): The worst-case scenario is that this is a situation where this was planned for a very long time to establish a company in this country and in the computer software business that would target federal agencies and gain access to key government data to essentially help terrorists launch another attack.

ARNOLD: Part of what concerns experts is the nature of Ptech's software. They say it's used to broadly assess strengths and weaknesses across organizations.

Ms. INDIRA SINGH (Risk Management and Computer Systems Consultant): The Ptech consultants and employees come into contact with the most sensitive information in an organization.

ARNOLD: Indira Singh was one of the first people to raise alarm about Ptech. She's a risk management and computer systems consultant. Singh was working with a major Wall Street bank and was thinking of using Ptech's software and consulting services. While checking on the company, she talked to an ex-employee. She says that person told her that some people at Ptech were concerned that one of its central investors was Yasin al-Qadi, who the FBI suspects of financing terrorist groups. Singh says she was told that at least several other employees and executives had ties to organizations suspected by the US government of funding terrorism. Singh says given that Ptech was doing work for the FBI, the Air Force, Navy and a host of other agencies, she became very concerned.
http://www.globalsecurity.org/org/news/2002/021208-secure01.htm

there's is a TON of material on this

it involves, again FBI malfeasance/collusion, ties to Saudi financing of terrorism........you know, the USUAL. but I have NEVER heard this story, though I'm sure it's been discussed here....I just missed it, I guess

Daniel Hopsicker, who's one of those who blew the lid on that plane out of Florida, and the CIA connections to Atta's flight school (also ignored by mainstream hoes), has some interesting material on the whistleblower Singh, who, incidentally, lives near the WTC, helped during the week after, and is now ILL from breathing that air Christie Whitman assured all was perfectly safe.

FBI's continuing investigation of Boston-area software company Ptech and its possible ties to terrorism
http://www.globalsecurity.org/org/news/2002/021208-secure01.htm
NPR Weekend All Things Considered December 8, 2002 (8:00 PM ET)

STEVE INSKEEP, host: People who tipped off the FBI about a Boston-area software company say federal authorities failed to properly investigate suspicions of terrorism. On Friday, the FBI raided the computer software company Ptech, which was a military contractor. Authorities insist the company never had a chance to obtain classified information, but some security experts suggest otherwise. NPR's Chris Arnold reports.

CHRIS ARNOLD reporting:

First, it's important to stress that no Ptech employees have been arrested, and authorities do not officially characterize the raid into the company's offices as a terrorism investigation. So the company, which has a number of Muslim employees, may well be innocent of any wrongdoing. But there have been some troubling questions raised about Ptech by its own employees and others close to the company. The story sounds like something out of a Tom Clancy novel on cybersnooping. Joe Bergantino is a reporter with the Boston CBS affiliate WBZ-TV. He's been working on the Ptech story for months, but he says he held off airing it at the request of federal investigators.

Mr. JOE BERGANTINO (Reporter, WBZ-TV): The worst-case scenario is that this is a situation where this was planned for a very long time to establish a company in this country and in the computer software business that would target federal agencies and gain access to key government data to essentially help terrorists launch another attack.

ARNOLD: Part of what concerns experts is the nature of Ptech's software. They say it's used to broadly assess strengths and weaknesses across organizations.

Ms. INDIRA SINGH (Risk Management and Computer Systems Consultant): The Ptech consultants and employees come into contact with the most sensitive information in an organization.

ARNOLD: Indira Singh was one of the first people to raise alarm about Ptech. She's a risk management and computer systems consultant. Singh was working with a major Wall Street bank and was thinking of using Ptech's software and consulting services. While checking on the company, she talked to an ex-employee. She says that person told her that some people at Ptech were concerned that one of its central investors was Yasin al-Qadi, who the FBI suspects of financing terrorist groups. Singh says she was told that at least several other employees and executives had ties to organizations suspected by the US government of funding terrorism. Singh says given that Ptech was doing work for the FBI, the Air Force, Navy and a host of other agencies, she became very concerned.

Ms. SINGH: I called the FBI directly.

ARNOLD: Singh says she'd learned that an ex-Ptech employee had also called the Boston office of the FBI months before, soon after the attacks on September 11th. So when she called that same office in May of this year, she hoped to hear that Ptech had been investigated and cleared of suspicion or was being aggressively looked into. She doesn't believe that it was.

Ms. SINGH: None of that was done. And the language, the kind of language law enforcement, counterterrorism and the FBI agents themselves were using basically indicated to me that absolutely no investigation was going on, that it was totally at a standstill, at which point my hair stood on end.

ARNOLD: A spokesperson for the FBI denies that the bureau failed to follow up on leads. Singh says she and others had to apply further pressure before the government started aggressively investigating the matter nearly a year after the FBI was first notified.

Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge said Ptech's software has now been scrutinized and it in no way jeopardizes the security of the country. But some security experts think the government is downplaying the potential threat. John Pike is a defense and intelligence analyst who heads up GlobalSecurity.org, a Washington-based non-profit policy group.

Mr. JOHN PIKE (GlobalSecurity.org): When you look at all of the different military security agencies that they have as customers, it's very difficult to imagine how they would not be encountering sensitive information, classified information.

ARNOLD: Indira Singh now believes that some Ptech employees had access to lots of information that could be dangerous in the hands of terrorists. She says Ptech did work for the Department of Energy in which it essentially blueprinted the process for nuclear waste disposal. She says Ptech employees could have learned how nuclear waste is transported and where it's stored. The company denies any ties to terrorist groups. Chris Arnold, NPR News, Boston.

I charge that he is not looking at the banking interests of the royal families primarily:

The House of Windor (which was fabricated)

The House of Orange-Nassau

The House of Rothschild (which is really The House of Bauer)


Why would Sabrosky want to discuss these things with regards to 9/11. There's no need to discuss these things when talking about 9/11. Alex Jones doesn't even bring up the House of Orange or the House of Rothschild in connection to 9/11.

We have the names, we know their roles and most of the key players are from the Jewish Zionist community, and these just no reason to make it any more complicated than that.


I charge that he is not looking at the very fact of the State of Israel being a Nazi-Zionist invention which was pushed upon both groups by the same puppeteer royals.


The State of Israel being invented along with Nazi collusion is common knowledge among historians and intellectuals, and has little if anything to do with 9/11.


I charge that he should examine the transfer agreement, the industrialists that created both hitler and the zionist state, and the very fact that the bilderberg group oversees all of what happens in Israel as well as their other puppet governments.


The history of Germany and Jewish relations and WW2 have very little, if nothing at all to do with 9/11 directly.


I charge that he examine why the man who says he can control the US with the zionist lightning in his eye sockets is in a perpetual coma due to a very timely stroke.


There is a new leader and government of Israel, but many of the players are the same players, expecially here in the US.



I charge that he examine Ptech and Saudi interests.


I'd love for someone to show me how the Muslim Brotherhood and Saudi Arabia benefitted from 9/11.


I charge that he examine the Carlyle Group, General Electric, IBM, and other international conglomerates who are responsible for the global prison tracking and enslaving grids being institutionalized in the not too distant future.


I charge that special branch and MI6 play as much part in serving the european and rockefeller bankers' fantasies with operations like 9/11 as mossad does.




I charge the very fact that leaving out the overlords and just singling out a single tentacle of the octopus lacks comprehensive analysis, logic, sensibility, and the ability to gather an overall awakening to stop the madness of less than 10,000 psychopaths.

To be fair, it would be different if Sabrosky had written an article called "the Dark face of the New World Order" then you could criticize him for not subscribing to your multi-cultural views of the power structure. But he didn't write about the NWO, he wrote about Jewish Nationalism.

Before TIU-French Connection interviewed Dr. Sabrosky, I posed request for Sabrosky to give us more information on why he feels that Israel was behind 9/11.
If you listen to the interview, Sabrosky addressed my query it in the first five minutes: we don't need a lot of information to figure out who and why 9/11 was done. Keeping it simple stupid, stating who benefited directly, and working backwards from there sheds the need to bring up stuff like PTECH when doing an interview that needs to reach as many people as possible and have it be coherent as possible.

Actually, He charges Israel af being in complete control of the US on 9/11 until today. He quotes the stroke man as most do without also quoting so many others who benefitted from 9/11. If you are unaware how Saudi Arabia benefited from getting US bases out of their land, stopping all mid east countries from undercutting their oil pricing schemes, becoming eyond scrutiny of their clear human right violations, and getting awarded huge carlyle contracts for perpetual wars are rebuilding then you probably have not been paying attention. Also there are over 100 sourced references to Saudi involvement with the events of 9/11 themselves. Not mentioning Saudi Arabia concerning 9/11 is like not mentioning Japan with Pearl Harbor, it is beyond surreal.

9/11 was the new world order, it is impossible to think it was anything but, it established a global surveilllance and prison grid for everyine. it allowed a pre-emptive war doctrine. the euro banking interests at the most basic level can be exposed along with the director of the CIA in the short selling. He is not just talking about 9/11, he is talking about an all encompassing control structure over the US, there is no way to rationalize a control structure over the US without mentioning Windsor (Philip and Lizzie) /Rothschild (Evelyn)/Orange-Nassau (Beatrix).
All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Good article but he doesn't get in to the Israeli connection.

He wrote an article last year that connects the dots between this group and Israel.

Cheney secret team involved saboteurs as well as assassins
By Wayne Madsen
Online Journal Contributing Writer
http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_4942.shtml

(WMR) -- WMR has learned from U.S. and foreign intelligence sources that Dick Cheney’s super-secret clandestine operations team, primarily made up of Department of Defense Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) personnel, in some cases worked closely with their Israeli commando counterparts to carry out sabotage against Iranian and Pakistani nuclear facilities, as well as assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists, other individuals who were knowledgeable about the role of Israelis in supplying nuclear materials to Pakistan and Iran, and commit terrorist attacks on civilian aircraft.

Although the CIA decided against working closely with the Cheney-directed JSOC team, agency officials were well-aware of its operations and special relationship with Mossad “Kidon” department, which is responsible for conducting assassinations and kidnappings. “Kidon” is the Hebrew word for bayonet.

During the time Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was in charge of the Pentagon, his neoconservative subordinates, including Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith, authorized the entrance into the Pentagon of top Israeli Defense Force and Mossad officers, including Kidon personnel, according to information obtained by WMR. There were no records maintained of the Israeli visits or the identities of the visitors in what was described by Pentagon officials as a complete violation of Pentagon security procedures.

The operations of the JSOC-Mossad team were coordinated by the Office of Special Plans, a unit that operated as a CIA rival under the direction of Feith and other pro-Israeli elements within the Office of the Secretary of Defense, including Feith’s deputy, William Luti, a close adviser to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Gingrich recently called for stepped up U.S.-led sabotage against Iranian targets. The JSOC-Mossad team also utilized the services of the Iranian terrorist organization, the Mojahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), designated as a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department, to coordinate sabotage and assassinations inside Iran.

Because of the rift between the CIA under George Tenet and the Department of Defense under Rumsfeld and his neocon deputies, the CIA backed off the operation for two major reasons: the CIA did not trust the Mossad and Langley saw Cheney as a major threat to more legitimate CIA operations.

In February 2007, Radio Farda, a neocon contrivance operated under the aegis of the State Department, broadcast a news item that Dr. Ardeshire Hassanpour, 44, a nuclear scientist at Iran’s uranium enrichment facility in Isfahan, died from “mysterious causes.” Hassanpour died on January 18, 2007, and it is believed by many that the scientist was one of many “enemies” assassinated by the joint U.S.-Israeli assassination and sabotage team operating under the aegis of Cheney’s office in the White House.

Cheney’s team reportedly struck earlier, on December 23, 2002, when a Russian-built Antonov An-140 crashed into the side of a mountain in central Iran while on its final approach to Isfahan airport. Between 44 and 48 people aboard the aircraft were killed, including 6 Russians and a number of Ukrainian engineers. A woman and child were also on board. The plane was en route to Isfahan from Kharkiv after making a refueling stop in Turkey. Although press reports stated that on board the aircraft were Ukrainian and Russian engineers, the fact that the plane was heading to Isfahan, a major Iranian nuclear research and engineering site raised eyebrows at the time.

The Iranian newspaper, Jam-e-Jam, reported that Mossad agents operating in Turkey had sabotaged the aircraft while it was being refueled in Turkey.

In February 2002, Iran AirTour flight 956 a Tupolev Tu-154, crashed into the side of a mountain near Khorramabad, 270 miles southwest of Tehran, killing all 119 passengers and crew on board. Residents of a village near Khorramabad said they heard a “big explosion.”

On January 9, 2006, a Falcon jet carrying 11 members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) crashed near Orumiyeh, capital of Iran’s West Azerbaijan province. The ground commander for IRGC’s forces, General Ahmed Kazemi, was one of the victims. The joint JSOC-Mossad team, operating from neighboring Azerbaijan, where the Mossad and CIA have major stations, is suspected of being behind the crash. WMR is aware that JSOC personnel, some ex-Delta Force contractors operating under journalistic cover, had already been in Iran to identify “soft targets” for assassinations and sabotage. These personnel allegedly reported directly to Colonel Steven Bucci, the personal military assistant to Rumsfeld at the Pentagon.

On February 19, 2003, another plane, a Russian-built Ilyushin-76, carrying elite IRGC soldiers crashed into a mountain in central Iran. The plane was transporting 302 members of the IRGC from Zahedan in southeastern Iran to Kerman, 500 miles southeast of Tehran.

On November 27, 2006, an Antonov-24 of the IRGC crashed at Meharabad International Airport in Tehran after its engines caught fire on take-off. 36 IRGC members and the crew died. The plane was en route to Shiraz on a “military mission.”

On December 8, 2005, an Iranian C-130 military aircraft transporting a number of journalists from Meherabad Airport to Bandar Abbas crashed into a 10-story building after take-off from the airport. One hundred eight passengers and crew were killed as well as 34 on the ground. The plane was attempting to make an emergency landing when it crashed. The Iranian journalists and photographers, 68 in total, were en route to Chabahar to cover a military exercise. The JSOC-Israeli team is also suspected of being behind the crash of the journalists’ plane.

On May 30, 2009, a bomb was found onboard Kish Air flight Y9-7030 MD-82 with 131 passengers. The bomb on the plane, which was en route from Ahvaz, Khuzestan to Tehran, was successfully defused after the plane made an emergency landing. The bomb incident took place just prior to the Iranian presidential election.

And in what may represent a warning by the special U.S.-Israeli assassination and sabotage unit not to probe too deeply into its past clandestine work, a Caspian Airlines Tupolev-154 crashed on July 15 75 miles northwest of Tehran after take-off from Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran en route to Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. Iran and Armenia maintain close relations. All 168 people on board the plane were killed. Caspian Airlines is an Iranian-Russian joint venture airline. An eyewitness is reported by the AP as saying the tail section of the plane burst into flames as it circled for a place to make an emergency landing prior to crashing near the city of Qazvin.

There are also suspicions that the JSOC-Israeli team, with the then-involvement of the CIA, was operational under Cheney’s aegis prior to 9/11. On July 11, 2001, Ali Mahmudi Mimand, the “father of Iran’s missiles,” including the Shihab III medium range missile, was reportedly killed in a mysterious explosion at the Shahid Hemat Industrial Group, south of Tehran. Mimand was chief of Iran’s secretive “Zelzal” missile development group. The JSOC-CIA-Mossad team is believed to have been behind the assassination of Mimand.

The JSOC-Mossad team is also strongly believed by some U.S. intelligence sources to have been behind the February 12, 2008, car bombing assassination of Hezbollah military commander Imad Mugniyeh in Damascus and the poisoning deaths of a number of targets, including Palestinian President Yasir Arafat who was reportedly blood poisoned at his headquarters in Ramallah on the West Bank.

Poisoning with a later conclusion of “death by natural causes” was a favorite method employed by the JSOC-Mossad team. Their fingerprints are suspected in the May 11, 2007, poisoning of Kyrgyzstan Prime Minister Almaz Atambayev when he declared, in the same month, that the U.S. airbase at Manas could not be used in any attacks on Iran. The poison team may have also been behind the sudden death in December 2006 of Turkmenistan’s dictator Saparmurat Niyazov or “Turkmenbashi.” Niyazov maintained a position of strict neutrality and forbid the U.S. from using Turkmenistan territory for military operations in Afghanistan or the use of Turkmen airspace in operations against Iran.

Fast cancer agents, courtesy of the JSOC-Mossad team, also reportedly took the life of Tajikistan’s Islamic opposition leader Said Abdullo Nuri who died from cancer on August 7, 2006, at age 59. Nuri favored establishing an Islamic state in Tajikistan and was seen as close to Iran.

WMR previously reported that the JSOC team carried out the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in Rawalapindi on December 27, 2007.

The Cheney joint Pentagon-Israeli team goes to the heart of covert activities conducted by the Bush-Cheney administration. The Obama administration has shown every indication of protecting Cheney and other top Bush administration officials from scrutiny. Obama recently extended Cheney’s Secret Service protection by six months, an indication that the White House is concerned that international arrest warrants for homicide may soon be issued against the former Vice President.

THE SECRET TEAM?!?!?!?!?!?

PART I
The Secret Team

http://www.ratical.org/ratville/JFK/ST/STchp1.html

Chapter 1      The "Secret Team" --
The Real Power Structure




          The most remarkable development in the management of America's relations with other countries during the quarter-century since the end of World War II has been the assumption of more and more control over military, financial and diplomatic operations at home and abroad by men whose activities are secret, whose budget is secret, whose very identities as often as not are secret -- in short, by a Secret Team whose actions only those implicated in them are in a position to monitor and to understand.

          For the purposes of this historical study, the choice of the word "Team" is most significant. It is well known that the members of a team, as in baseball or football, are skilled professionals under the direct control of someone higher up. They do not create their own game plan. They work for their coach and their owner. There is always some group that manages them and "calls the plays". Team members are like lawyers and agents, they work for someone. They generally do not plan their work. They do what their client tells them to do. For example: this is true of agents in the Central Intelligence Agency. It is an "Agency" and not a "Department" and its employees are highly skilled professionals who perform the functions their craft demands of them. Thus, the members of the highest level "Secret Team" work for their masters despite the fact that their own high office may make it appear to others that they, themselves are not only the Team but the Power Elite. This recalls a story related by the Rt. Hon. Lord Denning, Master of the Rolls, of Great Britain, during WW II.

          Winston Churchill had left the Admiralty to become Prime Minister. Frequently he would come down to the Admiralty basement on his way from #10 Downing Street, to his underground, bomb-proof bedroom. He made it his practice to visit the Officer in Charge for up-to-date Intelligence and then stroll into the Duty Captain's room where there was a small bar from which he sometimes indulged in a night-cap, along with his ever-present cigar.

          On this particular night there had been a heavy raid on Rotterdam. He sat there, meditating, and then, as if to himself, he said, "Unrestricted submarine warfare, unrestricted air bombing -- this is total war." He continued sitting there, gazing at a large map, and then said, "Time and the Ocean and some guiding star and High Cabal have made us what we are."

          This was a most memorable scene and a revelation of reality that is infrequent, at best. If for the great Winston Churchill, there is a "High Cabal" that has made us what we are, our definition is complete. Who could know better than Churchill himself during the darkest days of World War II, that there exists, beyond doubt, an international High Cabal? This was true then. It is true today, especially in these times of the One World Order. This all-powerful group has remained superior because it had learned the value of anonymity. For them, the Secret Team and its professionals operate.

          We may wish to note that in a book "Gentleman Spy, the Life of Allen Dulles" the author, Peter Grose cites Allen Dulles response to an invitation to the luncheon table from Hoover's Secretary of State, Henry L. Stimson. Allen Dulles assured his partners in the Sullivan & Cromwell law firm, "Let it be known quietly that I am a lawyer and not a diplomat." He could not have made a more characteristic and truthful statement about himself. He always made it clear that he did not "plan" his work, he was always the "lawyer" who carried out the orders of his client whether the President of the United States, or the President of the local bank.

          The Secret Team (ST) being described herein consists of security-cleared individuals in and out of government who receive secret intelligence data gathered by the CIA and the National Security Agency (NSA) and who react to those data, when it seems appropriate to them, with paramilitary plans and activities, e.g. training and "advising" -- a not exactly impenetrable euphemism for such things as leading into battle and actual combat -- Laotian tribal troops, Tibetan rebel horsemen, or Jordanian elite Palace Guards.

          Membership on the Team, granted on a "need-to-know" basis, varies with the nature and location of the problems that come to its attention, and its origins derive from that sometimes elite band of men who served with the World War II Office of Strategic Services (OSS) under the father of them all, General "Wild Bill" William J. Donovan, and in the old CIA.

          The power of the Team derives from its vast intragovernmental undercover infrastructure and its direct relationship with great private industries, mutual funds and investment houses, universities, and the news media, including foreign and domestic publishing houses. The Secret Team has very close affiliations with elements of power in more than three-score foreign countries and is able when it chooses to topple governments, to create governments, and to influence governments almost anywhere in the world.

          Whether or not the Secret Team had anything whatsoever to do with the deaths of Rafael Trujillo, Ngo Dinh Diem, Ngo Dinh Nhu, Dag Hammerskjold, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, and others may never be revealed, but what is known is that the power of the Team is enhanced by the "cult of the gun" and by its sometimes brutal and always arbitrary anti-Communist flag waving, even when real Communism had nothing to do with the matter at hand.

          The Secret Team does not like criticism, investigation, or history and is always prone to see the world as divided into but two camps -- "Them" and "Us". Sometimes the distinction may be as little as one dot, as in "So. Viets" and "Soviets," the So. Viets being our friends in Indochina, and the Soviets being the enemy of that period. To be a member, you don't question, you don't ask; it's "Get on the Team" or else. One of its most powerful weapons in the most political and powerful capitals of the world is that of exclusion. To be denied the "need to know" status, like being a member of the Team, even though one may have all the necessary clearances, is to be totally blackballed and eliminated from further participation. Politically, if you are cut from the Team and from its insider's knowledge, you are dead. In many ways and by many criteria the Secret Team is the inner sanctum of a new religious order.

          At the heart of the Team, of course, are a handful of top executives of the CIA and of the National Security Council (NSC), most notably the chief White House adviser to the President on foreign policy affairs. Around them revolves a sort of inner ring of Presidential officials, civilians, and military men from the Pentagon, and career professionals of the intelligence community. It is often quite difficult to tell exactly who many of these men really are, because some may wear a uniform and the rank of general and really be with the CIA and others may be as inconspicuous as the executive assistant to some Cabinet officer's chief deputy. Out beyond this ring is an extensive and intricate network of government officials with responsibility for, or expertise in, some specific field that touches on national security or foreign affairs: "Think Tank" analysts, businessmen who travel a lot or whose businesses (e.g. import-export or cargo airline operations) are useful, academic experts in this or that technical subject or geographic region, and quite importantly, alumni of the intelligence community -- a service from which there are no unconditional resignations. All true members of the Team remain in the power center whether in office with the incumbent administration or out of office with the hard-core set. They simply rotate to and from official jobs and the business world or the pleasant haven of academe.

          Thus, the Secret Team is not a clandestine super-planning-board or super-general-staff. But even more damaging to the coherent conduct of foreign and military affairs, it is a bewildering collection of semi-permanent or temporarily assembled action committees and networks that respond pretty much ad hoc to specific troubles and to flash-intelligence data inputs from various parts of the world, sometimes in ways that duplicate the activities of regular American missions, sometimes in ways that undermine those activities, and very often in ways that interfere with and muddle them. At no time did the powerful and deft hand of the Secret Team evidence more catalytic influence than in the events of those final ninety days of 1963, which the "Pentagon Papers" were supposed to have exposed.

          The New York Times shocked the world on Sunday, June 13, 1971, with the publication of the first elements of the Pentagon Papers.[1] The first document the Times selected to print was a trip report on the situation in Saigon, credited to the Secretary of Defense, Robert S. McNamara, and dated December 21, 1963. This was the first such report on the situation in Indochina to be submitted to President Lyndon B. Johnson. It came less than thirty days after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and less than sixty days after the assassinations of President Ngo Dinh Diem of South Vietnam and his brother and counselor Ngo Dinh Nhu.

          Whether from some inner wisdom or real prescience or merely simple random selection, the Times chose to publish first from among the three thousand pages of analysis and four thousand pages of official documents that had come into its hands that report which may stand out in history as one of the key documents affecting national policy in the past quarter-century -- not so much for what it said as for what it signified. This report is a prime example of how the Secret Team, which has gained so much control over the vital foreign and political activities of this government, functions.

          Most observers might have expected that the inner group of men who had worked so closely with President Kennedy for three years would have lost heart in those days following his tragic death. On the contrary, they burst forth, as though from strong bonds and fetters and created this entirely new report, thus shaping the future of the Indochina conflict. Their energy and their new sense of direction seemed almost to rise from the flame of Kennedy's tomb in Arlington.

          During those hectic months of late summer in 1963 when the Kennedy Administration appeared to be frustrated and disenchanted with the ten-year regime of Ngo Dinh Diem in Saigon, it approved the plans for the military coup d'état that would overthrow President Diem and get rid of his brother Nhu. The Kennedy Administration gave its support to a cabal of Vietnamese generals who were determined to remove the Ngos from power. Having gone so far as to withdraw its support of the Diem government and to all but openly support the coup, the Administration became impatient with delays and uncertainties from the generals in Saigon, and by late September dispatched General Maxwell D. Taylor, then Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), and Secretary of Defense McNamara to Saigon.

          Upon their return, following a brief trip, they submitted a report to President Kennedy, which in proper chronology was the one immediately preceding the remarkable one of December 21, 1963. This earlier report said, among other things "There is no solid evidence of the possibility of a successful coup, although assassination of Diem and Nhu is always a possibility." The latter part of this sentence contained the substantive information. A coup d'état, or assassination is never certain from the point of view of the planners; but whenever United States support of the government in power is withdrawn and a possible coup d'état or assassination is not adamantly opposed, it will happen. Only three days after this report, on October 5, 1963, the White House cabled Ambassador Lodge in Saigon: "There should be... urgent covert effort . . . to identify and build contact with possible alternate leadership." Knowledge of a statement such as this one made by the ostensible defenders and supporters of the Diem regime was all those coup planners needed to know. In less than one month Diem was dead, along with his brother.[2]

          Thus, what was considered to be a first prerequisite for a more favorable climate in Vietnam was fulfilled. With the Ngo family out of the way, President Kennedy felt that he had the option to bring the war to a close on his own terms or to continue pressure with covert activities such as had been under way for many years. Because the real authors were well aware of his desires, there was another most important statement in the McNamara-Taylor report of October 2, 1963: "It should be possible to withdraw the bulk of U.S. personnel by that time...." [the end of 1965] This statement came at a key point in time.

          Like the others, it was written by Secret Team insiders who knew the President's mind and how far they could go in setting forth ideas which he would accept and yet be acceptable to their own plans. Reports such as the October 2, 1963, document were not written in Saigon and they were not written by the men whose names appeared on them.

          This pivotal report was written in Washington by members of the ST. Although it contained a lot of updated material from Saigon (some of which had been transmitted to Saigon verbatim for the express purpose of having to then re-transmitted back to Washington for inclusion in the report -- with the all-important Saigon dateline), one may be certain that this report contained a skillful mixture of what the President wanted to hear and what its authors in Washington wanted the President to read. Therefore, when it included the blunt and unequivocal statement that "it should be possible to withdraw the bulk of U.S. personnel by that time", the authors, cover and undercover, were in tune with the times. They knew the President was favorably considering means to extricate the United States from Vietnam.

          The ST had had its day with Kennedy on the beaches of the Cuban Bay of Pigs. Kennedy had minutely reviewed that debacle, and from that time on he was ever alert for the slightest sign of any undercover operation that might expand and get so out of hand as to involve this country in any more such disasters. The Team had come a long way since that dismal period in April 1961, and had learned well how to use and thrive with Jack Kennedy, in spite of his caution. One way to do this was to be certain to spell things correctly -- meaning hewing close to his line while retaining ST initiative. It is a safe bet to say that this forecast of personnel withdrawal by the end of 1965 was the maneuvering time they wanted and what Kennedy would accept, in their language, so that he too would have time to get re-elected and then carry out his own decisions as he had related them to Senator Mansfield. It appears that Kennedy felt that with the obstacle of the Diem regime out of the way, he would have the opportunity to disengage this nation from the war that he had so far been able to keep from becoming a runaway overt action. Up to the end of 1963, all U.S. Army troops in South Vietnam, with the exception of a small number in the Military Advisory and Assistance Group (MAAG) and a few other such positions, were there under the operational control of the CIA. This was flimsy cover and it was a poor device to maintain that the United States was not overtly involved in military activity in Indochina; but the device did achieve its purpose of keeping the level of the war to a minimum.

          Within thirty days of the Taylor-McNamara report, Diem and his brother were dead. The Government of South Vietnam was in the hands of the popular and powerful General Duong Van "Big" Minh. Minh was a strong enough man to have made Vietnamization work. But within another thirty days President Kennedy was dead, and the Government of the United States was in the hands of Lyndon B. Johnson. "Big" Minh may have been the man Kennedy wanted in Saigon, but he did not last long with the new Johnson Administration. Four days after Kennedy's death, on November 26, 1963, President Johnson issued an order reaffirming United States policy in South Vietnam and at the same time referring to the new Government of General Minh as a "provisional government", presaging and assuring the inevitability of another change in the near future. President Johnson's advisers wanted a "benevolent" military regime in Saigon, and they wanted one which would be more suitable than Minh's. Kennedy would have had Minh rally around him a popular and strongly independent Vietnamese administration. After Kennedy's death, U.S. policy called for leadership in Saigon which would accept continuing United States participation in the internal affairs of that Government.

          Less than fifteen days after the death of Kennedy, Secretary of Defense McNamara was on his way back to Saigon to assess the situation under General Minh and to report to the new President of the United States. This time, the McNamara report was, to quote The New York Times, "Laden with gloom". His assessment laid the groundwork for the long haul and included decisions to step up the covert war against North Vietnam in early 1964 and to increase American aid to South Vietnam. Within ninety days the Government of "Big" Minh was eased out of office and replaced by the more tractable General Nguyen Khanh.

          There are those who say that because he had approved certain covert operations in Indochina, President Kennedy was planning to expand the war. It is true that accelerating cover operations is like stoking the fire; but we should weigh Kennedy's actions against the fact that the United States had been actively involved in clandestine operations in Indochina since 1945 as well as in other areas of the world for many years, and that these activities did not signify that the administration concerned had embarked upon a course leading to open warfare.

          The paramount condition underlying any approval for clandestine operations is absolute control at the top. The ST will come up with operational schemes all the time and will seek approval for as many as it believes it can get away with. The only way to cope with this is for the President to make it clear that there will be no covert operations without proper approval and that he will always be in a position to cancel or disapprove of any and all operations as he sees fit. Truman and Eisenhower knew this and practiced it. Kennedy learned it at the Bay of Pigs. Eisenhower had terminated major operations in Tibet, Laos, and Indonesia without escalating them into open war. Until his death Kennedy had held the line at the limited level of covert activities in Indochina, and American participation there was restricted to an advisory capacity. (Of course, we all recognize that this advisory role was, in many cases, pure combat.)

          Clandestine operations that are small and strictly controlled with a fixed and time-limited objective can be terminated at any time, whether they succeed or fail. However, clandestine operations that become large, that are permitted to continue and to be repeated, that become known or compromised -- and yet still continue, as in Laos -- are very dangerous and can lead to open hostilities and even war. Thus, when the ST proposed a vastly escalated covert campaign against North Vietnam in December 1963, they were laying positive plans for the major military action that followed in 1965.[3] Within thirty days after Kennedy's death all of this changed drastically. In his report of December 21, 1963, McNamara stated: "Viet Cong progress had been great during the period since the coup. We also need to have major increases in both military and USOM (United States Operations Mission) staffs."

          Later, he added, "Our first need would be immediate U-2 mapping of the whole Laos and Cambodian border, and this we are preparing to do on an urgent basis." And then, "One other step we can take is to expand the existing limited but remarkably effective operations on the Laos side, the so-called Operation HARDNOSE... Plans to expand this will be prepared and presented for your approval in about two weeks." And further, "As to the waterways, the military plans presented in Saigon were unsatisfactory, and a special Naval team is being sent a once from Honolulu to determine what more can be done."

          Then he noted: "Plans for covert action into North Vietnam were prepared as we had requested and were an excellent job. . .General Krulak of the JCS is chairing a group that will lay out a program in the next ten days for your consideration." All of these statements were evidence of typical, thorough ST groundwork.

          McNamara closed out this report -- which was so vastly different from the earlier October 2 one that he and Maxwell Taylor had submitted to President Kennedy -- by saying: "We should watch the situation very carefully, running scared, and hoping for the best, but preparing for more forceful moves if the situation does not show early signs of improvement."

          This was not the report of a group that was planing to wind down the war. It was a report that delineated various avenues of endeavor and that looked well into the future. This was the first such report made to President Johnson, and it was not designed to be reassuring. On the same day that the McNamara report was being handed to President Johnson, a former President was writing a totally different statement for the readership of the general pubic. President Harry S. Truman, observing the turn of events since the death of President Kennedy, and pondering developments since his Administration, wrote for the Washington Post a column also datelined December 21, 1963:

          For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the government... I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak-and-dagger operations. Some of the complications and embarrassment that I think we have experienced are in part attributable to the fact that this quiet intelligence arm of the President has been so removed from its intended role that it is being interpreted as a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue and a subject for cold war enemy propaganda.

          Truman was disturbed by the events of the past ninety days, those ominous days of October, November, and December 1963. Men all over the world were disturbed by those events. Few men, however could have judged them with more wisdom and experience than Harry S. Truman, for it was he who, in late 1947, had signed unto law the National Security Act. This Act, in addition to establishing the Department of Defense (DOD) with a single Secretary at its head and with three equal and independent services -- the Army, Navy, and Air Force -- also provided for a National Security Council and the Central Intelligence Agency. And during those historic and sometimes tragic sixteen years since the Act had become law, he had witnessed changes that disturbed him, as he saw that the CIA "had been diverted" from the original assignment that he and the legislators who drafted the Act had so carefully planned. Although even in his time he had seen the beginning of the move of the CIA into covert activities, there can be little doubt that the "diversion" to which he made reference was not one that he would have attributed to himself or to any other President. Rather, the fact that the CIA had gone into clandestine operations and had been "injected into peacetime cloak-and-dagger operations", and "has been so much removed from its intended role" was more properly attributable to the growing and secret pressures of some other power source. As he said, the CIA had become "a symbol of sinister and mysterious foreign intrigue".

          There can be no question that the events just prior to this statement heavily influenced his arriving at these disturbing conclusions. It is possible, but quite improbable, that Harry Truman knew about the McNamara report of the same date. But the coincidence between the appearance of Truman's commentary and of McNamara's report is compelling, especially since McNamara's report was the first selected by The New York Times for publication in its expose of the Pentagon Papers.

          Now that the McNamara report has been published and has emerged from the depths of security, it can be added that this pivotal report was not written by McNamara; it was not even written in Saigon. This report, like the one dated October 2, was actually written by a group of ST and near-ST members and was drafted by them solely to impress upon the new President their idea of the increasing gravity and frightful responsibility of the war in Indochina. It was not for nothing that the Times noted that this report was "laden with gloom" and that it offered nowhere any easy or quick panacea for early victory in Indochina. It was not untended to do so. In fact, it did just the opposite. It left no room for any course of action other than eventual escalation of the war. This report and the ones that followed close upon it were carefully and skillfully written to instill into the new President an indelible belief that the war in Vietnam was the greatest issue facing the Free World. They hammered home the fanciful belief that if South Vietnam fell before the onslaught of Communism, the whole world would be engulfed.

          As was common with reports such as this one, the first time McNamara saw it was during a few days stopover in Honolulu on his return trip from Saigon. It had been put together from many sources and drafts, primarily from the CIA and other secret-operations related areas, by the office of the Special Assistant for Counterinsurgency and Special Activities (SACSA) in the Joint Staff under the skilled and dedicated direction of Major General Victor H. Krulak. General Krulak was the same man who was designated in the body of the report to chair "a group that will lay out a program of covert action in North Vietnam in the next ten days".

          In Pentagonese for highly classified matters, General Krulak's office in the Joint Staff was described as being responsible for serving as the JCS point of contact, in his field of interest, with related activities in the Military Departments, the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), and other agencies of the government. This was the unclassified way of saying that his office was the point of contact within the DOD for the CIA. His contacts in this select circle in the OSD were such men as Major General Edward G. Lansdale, who was McNamara's special assistant for all matters involving the CIA and special operations; William Bundy, who appears throughout the Pentagon Papers as one of the key men of the ST and was at that time a recent alumni of the CIA, with ten years in that Agency behind him; John T. McNaughton, another member of the ST and a McNamara favorite; Joseph Califano, who moved from OSD to the White House; General Richard G. Stilwell of the White House Special Committee (details to follow), and others.

          The preparations for and the writing of such influential reports as this one attributed to McNamara was a work of skill, perseverance, and high art. Whenever it was decided that McNamara would go to Saigon, select members of the ST sent special messages to Saigon on the ultra-secure CIA communications network, laying out a full scenario for his trip. The Secretary of Defense and his party would be shown "combat devastated villages" that had paths and ruts that had been caused by the hard work and repeated rehearsals -- not battles -- that had taken place in them between "natives", "Vietnamese soldiers", and Americans. McNamara would be taken on an itinerary planned in Washington, he would see "close-in combat" designed in Washington, and he would receive field data and statistics prepared for him in Washington. All during his visit he would be in the custody of skilled briefers who knew what he should see, whom he should see, and whom he should not see.

          In many cases even the messages relayed from Saigon, ostensibly written by and for McNamara while he was there, had been sent to Saigon from Washington before he had arrived there. When a total communications system such as that available to the ST exists all over the world and is concealed by secrecy, it is not difficult to yield to the urge to "play God" and make everything come out as desired.

          While McNamara was on his trip, the Special Assistant for Counterinsurgency and Special Activities and his staff, augmented by CIA and others, were working around the clock on the report. There were times when General Krulak himself stayed at his desk for thirty-six hours or more to keep a full staff going while secretaries and typists were shuttled to and from their homes for rest periods to get the massive report done in time.

          While all of the writing was under way, cartographers and artists were working on illustrative material for the final report and for the big briefing charts that became a part of McNamara's personal style. The final report, perhaps two inches thick, was printed and bound in a legal-size, black goatskin cover, with the name of the President engraved in gold on it.

          The finished report was rushed by helicopter to Andrews Air Force Base, about twenty miles from the Pentagon, and placed aboard a military jet fighter for a nonstop, midair-refueled flight to Honolulu, where it was handed to Mr. McNamara and his staff. He familiarized himself with the report while his jet flew him to Washington, where he disembarked at Andrews Air Force Base, trotted (with the report tucked under his arm) to the waiting Presidential helicopter and was whisked to the White House lawn to be greeted by the President. As soon as he got into the White House, an aide distributed the closely guarded and controlled copies of the report to those who had the need to know, and discussions began.

          This recapitulation is worth setting forth in detail because it underscores not only the resourcefulness of the ST but its ability to perform super-miracles in an age when mere miracles are commonplace. The ST always fights for the minds, the time, and the attention of the top-echelon men. It moves fastest and most adroitly when others are off guard. This report of December 21, 1963, was absolutely crucial to the interests of the ST. Twenty-five years of driving, devoted work by ST members through a whole generation of critical events culminated in the Vietnam war. Never before in all the long history of civilization was a country to devote so much of its resources, its men and their lives, its money, and its very prestige in so strange an event as that which is called "The War In Vietnam". It made the coups d'état in Guatemala and Iran, the rebellion in Indonesia, the escape of the Dalai Lama and the underground war in Tibet, the Bay of Pigs, and the wasting war in Laos all pale before its magnitude.

          President Johnson, for all his experience and native ability, had not yet been singed by the fire of experience as had Jack Kennedy in Cuba or Eisenhower by the U-2. Johnson was a natural "wheeler dealer", with courage and a flair for getting things done; but he had not yet learned how to say "No" and make it stick, rather, he had the inclination to defer the issue to a later day. This was the ideal formula for the ST, and they struck while the iron was hot.

          There is another important factor to weigh in considering the agility and cunning of the ST. In bureaucratic Washington, few things are worth more than prior information. If a subordinate knows now what his boss is going to know tomorrow, he is in the same position that the gambler would like to be in if he knew which horse was going to win in a future race. The ST has set itself up through the use and control of intelligence data, both real and manufactured, to know now what its bosses are going to know later. This applies most significantly in such events as the McNamara report.

          As anyone who has perceived the full significance of the routine described earlier will realize, the ST knows what the report of the Secretary of Defense is going to be even before he does, and therefore, before all the rest of official Washington does. This twenty-four to forty-eight hour lead-time of critical and most influential knowledge is a most valuable commodity. Many staffs who have no real responsibilities in the covert activities of this nation break their backs for a glimpse of what the ST is doing, and for this special privilege they pay one way or another.

          At other times the Team will extract from a report such as has been described a few paragraphs that will be skillfully leaked to the press and to selected businessmen. Background briefings are held, most frequently in some quiet conference room in the New State Building or perhaps in the big executive dining room Allen Dulles had in the old "E" Street headquarters of the CIA; and there a sub-staff of the ST will pour over the language of a brief item designed especially for "Periscope" in Newsweek, or perhaps for its old favorite, Joe Alsop.

          In any event, advance top-level information is a most valuable and saleable commodity. But nowhere is it more valuable than in the White House itself and in the offices of the Secretary of Defense and of the Director of Central Intelligence. McGeorge Bundy, Mike Forrestal, Joe Califano, Maxwell Taylor, and the others always looked good when they could sit down, calm and composed, with the President and with Rusk and McNamara, already knowing what was in the reports these men were pouring over page by page. McNamara would give one of his classic "fully charted" briefings of his trip, utilizing for his purpose the originals of the artwork in his report, and have the President and other Cabinet officers hanging on his every word -- words he had been learning and rehearsing while he sped by jet from Honolulu. At the same time, the ST members were secure in their knowledge that they already knew every word that McNamara was going to say and that they had staff studies and Presidential messages already drafted to send to the Ambassador and the commanders in Indochina.

          It may seem strange to readers of the Pentagon Papers to note how often a report from the chairman of the JCS to the Secretary of Defense would be followed the next day by one from the Secretary of Defense to the President -- and then almost on the same day, by a lengthy message to the ambassador in Saigon. What may seem even more strange is that the reply from the ambassador would follow, with all of its detail, within twenty-four hours. This was not a miracle. This was preplanning by the ST. The whole thing was done at the same time, and even the reply from the ambassador had been anticipated by a closely guarded message via CIA channels to a CIA man on the embassy staff in Saigon, giving him the language to use for the ambassadors reply almost as soon as the President's wire arrived. The ST seldom left anything to chance, and since they had the means of the "Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", they made it a way of life to use it.

          The Pentagon Papers reveal in the total listing of names of the principal writers of those papers a good compilation of key members of the ST at that time. However, it would be very misleading to accept this list as complete and meaningful for anything more than this one area of activity. Furthermore, some of the most influential members of the Team are not even mentioned in those pages. There were and are many men who are not in government who are prime movers of Secret Team activity.

          Only one month after McNamara's report, General Maxwell D. Taylor, then Chairman of the JCS, kept the ball rolling with a report to Secretary McNamara, dated January 22, 1964. It is important to keep in mind that Maxwell Taylor was on the same trip to Saigon with McNamara that resulted in the October 2, 1963, report, the one that contained the "home by end of 1965" theme. Now, less than four months later, he was saying: "It would be unrealistic to believe that a complete suppression of the insurgency can take place in one or even two years." And further, "The United States must make plain to the enemy our determination to see the Vietnam campaign through to a favorable conclusion. To do this, we must prepare for whatever level of activity may be required and, being prepared, must then proceed to take actions as necessary to achieve our purposes surely and promptly."

          "The JCS believe that our position in Cambodia, our attitude toward Laos, our actions in Thailand and our great effort in South Vietnam do not comprise a compatible and integrated policy for Southeast Asia. U.S. objectives in Southeast Asia cannot be achieved by either economic, political or military measures alone. All three fields must be integrated into a single, broad U.S. program for Southeast Asia."

          Later, we shall deal in more detail with this new "military" line, which Taylor was here expounding. But while we are weighing these words, we should note that the U.S. military -- more precisely, that part that was closely affiliated with the CIA (and by 1964, General Taylor must be considered to be among them) -- was underscoring here in the United States as well as overseas the new political-social-economic role of the Army. This subject is only inferentially introduced in Taylor's report; but as we shall see later, it had become a dominant theme in the peacetime-operations Army procedure of this period.

          At the same time it should be noted that Taylor, operating most certainly under the provisions set forth by President Kennedy in his National Security Action Memorandum #55 of June, 1961[4], is strongly announcing his support of covert actions against North Vietnam. This would have been quite uncharacteristic and unthinkable in the Army before this time. It became Secret-Team-type doctrine, because the Team knew all too well that covert operations of sufficient size and volume could be exploited.

          Like the carbon rods in a nuclear reactor, to raise or lower the level of "radioactivity" or to heat up a latent insurgency situation to the level desired, this has been done in Laos for fifteen or more years. The policies that have been used in Indochina create and generate more combat than they quench. It has been said that the Vietnamese war is one of "re-counter", the idea being that if you hit someone -- even little, starving, terrorized, and homeless natives -- long enough, they will eventually fight back with whatever bits of remaining strength they have. Thus, Taylor's following words take on certain special significance:

          It is our [JCS] conviction that if support of the insurgency from outside South Vietnamin terms of operational direction, personnel and material were stopped completely, the character of the war in South Vietnam would be substantially and favorably altered. Because of this conviction, we are wholly in favor of executing the covert actions against North Vietnam which you have recently proposed to the President. [These were the covert actions which the group chaired by General Krulak had developed.] We believe, however, that it would be idle to conclude that these efforts will have a decisive effect on the Communist determination to support the insurgency; and it is our view that we must therefore be prepared fully to undertake a much higher level of activity, not only for its beneficial tactical effect, but to make plain our resolution, both to our friends and to our enemies.

          Following this statement, which like others was written by his special staff and by his CIA associates, General Taylor listed ten activities which he said the United States must make ready to conduct in Southeast Asia. One of these was to "... commit U.S. forces as necessary in support of the combat action within South Vietnam." He added, "The past few months have disclosed that considerably higher levels of effort are demanded of us if U.S. objectives are to be attained."

          In the inner chambers of the Government, where secret operations are cloaked in sufficient cover-story language to keep even the experts and top echelon leaders in a state of unreality, nothing ever more closely approached the "emperor's new clothes" syndrome than did the ST's work on Johnson, Rusk, McCone, and McNamara.

          Townsend Hoopes, who spent years in the Pentagon in this awesome environment, wrote in the Washington Post of August 17, 1971, "The altered alignments in the Communist world were much clearer in 1964 than in 1960, making it, again in theory, easier for Johnson to take a fresh look. But the abrupt and tragic way in which he had come to the White House, the compulsions of the 1964 presidential campaign, and his own lack of a steady compass in foreign affairs (not to mention the powerful and nearly unanimous views of his inherited advisers) effectively ruled out a basic reappraisal of our national interests in Vietnam. Like each predecessor, Johnson decided, as one analyst put it, "that it would be inconvenient for him to lose South Vietnam this year".

          There is a fine point to add to Mr. Hoopes' perceptions. Johnson not only did not make "a basic reappraisal of our national interests in Vietnam", but he did not check out the compass to assure himself that the Ship of State was on the same course that it had been sailing before he took the helm of office. He never took the time nor made the effort to check out the ST. He just took it for granted that it was on the same course after Kennedy's death as before. This was his first big oversight.

          The point is subtle, and the change was at each turn slight; but the long-range course was being altered dynamically. Each report he received gave the semblance of normalcy, and each report was a reasonable part of the pattern with which he was somewhat familiar. No one would deny that Lyndon Johnson was not an intimate of Jack Kennedy's and that, especially in matters pertaining to Vietnam, he really did not know the Presidents mind. The fact that he had been to Vietnam may actually have been more of a cover story and a handicap for him than a view of reality.

          Brainwashing was the business of the ST in South Vietnam. No less than Robert McNamara, Robert Kennedy, Vice-President Johnson, and John McCone were thoroughly indoctrinated on South Vietnam by hardheaded experts who thought nothing of sharpening the scenarios skillfully drawn for consumption by top-level officials. Allen W. Dulles meant it when he called his book The Craft of Intelligence. To him and his inner ring of confidants and paramilitary experts, big-time intelligence was craftily managed. As a result, these carefully drawn reports told the President that things were getting much worse in Southeast Asia and that there was a strong possibility of a Communist take-over of all of South Asia if South Vietnam and Laos and then Cambodia succumbed to the insurgency which, the Team said, was running rampant there.

          After the reports and briefings of December 1963 and January 1964, it became evident that Johnson was giving way before the pressures of the CIA and the "military" who were working with the Agency.

          It is essential that the term "military" be clarified for use throughout this book. Many military men are regularly assigned to the CIA, in their primary roles as intelligence experts, for their own experience and training and to flesh out areas where the Agency can use them. These are legitimate military assignments, and such men are openly identified with the CIA. There is another group of military men who are fully assigned to the Agency, meaning their pay and allowances are reimbursed to the parent service by the CIA, but they appear to be with regular military units or other normal assignments so that their assignment to the CIA will not be revealed to those unwitting of their real task.

          These men are on cover assignments. Some of them are completely detached from the service for the period of their assignment although they will get promotions and other benefits similar to those of their contemporaries. Then there are other military personnel working with the CIA who are really Agency employees but who are permitted to wear the uniform and rank or grade of their Reserve or National Guard status. And lastly, there are other CIA personnel who for special reasons are permitted to assume the uniform or at least the identity of one of the military services, with rank as is necessary, even though they have no real service connection.

          There are few of these latter individuals; but they do exist. It is also true that for certain practical purposes nearly all CIA personnel carry the identification of the Department of Defense or some other government agency in order that they will have simple cover for such things as credit cards and banking accounts so they will not have to reveal their employment with the CIA. This category is simply a technical expedient and is not intended in the first instance to be used for clandestine purposes.

          This strong military bias of the Agency plays a very important part in the operations of the ST and will be discussed more fully in later chapters. It probably played an impressive role in the winning of President Johnson's mind soon after be took office. He no doubt, as did most others, looked to such men as General Maxwell Taylor, General Victor Krulak, General William Rosson, General Edward Lansdale, General William Peers, General Richard C. Stilwell, General William Dupuy, and many many others as straight-line military officers. Although without question they all were military men, they all also had assignments of various types that made them effective CIA operators. By the very nature of their work, they worked with, for, and in support of the CIA. It was their first allegiance. Those mentioned above form but a brief list of the great number of senior officers in this category.

          After these first reports of December 1963 and early 1964, the next round of Secret Team maneuvers was planned as they worked to up-grade the war. It became time for McNamara to bring things up to date with the White House. On March 16, 1964, he made a report to the President, "On Steps to Change the Trend of the War". This report was long and discursive. It even included the line, "Substantial reductions in the numbers of U.S. military training personnel should occur before the end of 1965." Notice how the words were put! This report had the ring of the old "home by the end of 1965" report of October 2, 1963, but with a significant difference. In October, Taylor and McNamara had said to Kennedy that it should be possible to withdraw the bulk of U S. personnel. The key word is "personnel", as opposed to the March 16 "military training personnel".

          The Vietnam war has always been a most unusual one from the standpoint of its being a non-typical war. A very large number of U.S. personnel in this war were not military. There were thousands from other government agencies. There were tens of thousands of civilian workers of all kinds. The helicopter maintenance support alone required fantastic numbers of civilian maintenance personnel and contract workers. Kennedy knew this, and when he was told that "U.S. personnel" would be coming home, he knew that meant a comprehensive and meaningful number. However, when McNamara told Johnson that "substantial reductions in. . . military training personnel" would take place, he was talking about a small slice of the pie.

          Even if all of the training personnel came home, there would still be a lot of U.S. manpower there. The distinction was meaningful. It was brainwashing and misleading, and intentionally so. Lines such as this were added simply for flavoring. The ST writers would not expect the President to notice the difference. He would hear the words "reductions" and "personnel" only.

          Meanwhile, the ST had a safety valve in their report in the event they had to account for this report at a later date, something they always planned for, but seldom, if ever, had to do. After all of the words, recent history of Indochina involvement, and some philosophizing continued in this lengthy McNamara report, the final paragraph held the meat of the proposition:

          12. To prepare immediately to be in position on 72 hours notice to initiate the full range of Laotian and Cambodian "Border Control" actions beyond those authorized in Paragraph 11 above and the "Retaliatory Actions" against North Vietnam, and to be in a position on 30 days' notice to initiate the program of "Graduated Overt Military Pressure" against North Vietnam.

          This was another big step forward on the way to inevitable escalation. It is one thing for a nation to plan for a clandestine operation with an agent or agents and to arrange for its success, or in the event of failure, to totally deny involvement. All such activities are planned in such a way that the nation taking the action may be able to disclaim plausibly to the entire world that it had anything to do with such an action. But the action above is serious international business, because at the very root of the plan is the intent to violate the sovereignty of another nation. Wars have been started by such events. When a nation feels that it must resort to clandestine activities, it does so with great caution and then only with agents who are specially prepared for such work. In no case, or in the very rarest cases, are members of the diplomatic service and of the uniformed military service ever used for such acts. Honor and honesty in the society of nations demand that the diplomatic corps and the military services be beyond reproach. The paragraph quoted above from McNamara's March 16 report not only proposed more or less routine covert activity against Laos, Cambodia, and North Vietnam, but it added that the United States should plan for "overt military pressure" against North Vietnam, thus carrying through the momentum of action initiated with his December 21, 1963, report. The die was cast. The Gulf of Tonkin incident occurrect on August 4, 1964, and from that time on to the President's announcement of the massive build-up of forces, there could be no doubting the course laid out for the United States in Indochina.

          This course was set by the winds of change as this Government responded to and reacted to various intelligence-data inputs from as far back as 1945. Vietnam was not so much a goal as it was a refuge and backlash of everything that had gone wrong in a quarter-century of clandestine activities. There can be no questioning the fact that Vietnam inherited some of the Korea leftovers; it inherited the Magsaysay team from the Philippines with its belief in another Robin-Hood-like Magsaysay in the person of Ngo Dinh Diem; it fell heir to the Indonesian shambles; it soaked up men and materials from the Tibetan campaign and from Laos in particular, and it inherited men and material, including a large number of specially modified aircraft, from the Bay of Pigs disaster. In its leadership it inherited men who had been in Greece in the late forties or during the Eisenhower era and who felt that they knew Communist insurgency when they saw it. The nation of South Vietnam had not existed as a nation before l954, rather it was another country's piece of real estate. South Vietnam has never really been a nation. It has become the quagmire of things gone wrong during the past twenty-five years.

          In the August 7, 1971, issue of The New Republic, the Asian scholar Eugene G. Windchy says, "What steered the nation into Vietnam was a series of tiny but powerful cabals." What he calls a sense of tiny but powerful conspiracies, this book puts all together as the actions of the Secret Team. That most valuable book by David Wise and Thomas B. Ross calls this power source "The Invisible Government", and in the chapter on the various intelligence organizations in the United States they use the term "Secret Elite".

          The CIA did not begin as a Secret Team, as a "series of tiny but powerful cabals", as the "invisible government", or as members of the "secret elite". But before long it became a bit of all of these. President Truman was exactly right when he said that the CIA had been diverted from its original assignment. This diversion and the things that have happened as a result of it will be the subject of the remainder of this book.

This is a gross and crafty misnomer [Pentagon Papers], since all too few of those papers actually were bona fide military papers. They may have been written under Pentagon headings; they may have been signed by "military" officers or "military department civilians", but for the most part they were not actually military papers. They represent the papers of a small group of civilians, some of whom worked in the Pentagon, and their military [real and cover] counterparts.

The Pentagon Papers' account and the subsequent NBC-TV presentation of the assassination of the Ngo brothers are both excellent representations of what happened during those grim days in Washington and Saigon. The only problem is that neither one is a complete and accurate account of what really took place, especially in Washington.

McNamara used to make the distinction that the war against North Vietnam was "sophisticated". Whereas the war in the South was "unsophisticated". The feeling was that there was an element of design and control over the war in the North which was not possible in the South. Walt Rostow had his own term for this. He liked to say that the war in the North was a sort of game of tit-for-tat. His idea was that if they hit us, we'd hit back. This type of game is all the more "sophisticated" when we hit clandestinely; they strike back overtly and then we strike back, claming they hit first!

See clarification on pages 115 and 401.

Wayne Madsen's scenario seems very plausible, Cheney and his secret team mangaing events from the secret bunker (read control and command center).  Mossad/Israeli/ American Zionist-extremist agents were just part of the plan, one of the groups Cheney's crew was coordinating with -- and a devil's (Machiavellian) bargain the Israelis/Zionists struck with the Neocon gang it was. I really doubt Dick Cheney has any special love for Jews, Israel, or "Zionism."

Office of Special Plans, a unit that operated as a CIA rival under the direction of Feith and other pro-Israeli elements within the Office of the Secretary of Defense

I think Madsen was trying to show that Cheney's group was actually run by ardent Zionist Douglas Feith. Cheney's group was actually just another Zionist operation. JSOC was a rouge Zionist commando unit run by both Pentagon(Pentagon was completely infiltrated by fanatical Zionists) and Mossad. Sounds like an out of control situation.

I see your point though. That's just my interpretation of the article.

I don't think Cheney was taking orders from Feith, but I could believe they were working together - each for their own interests. If that was what Madsen was implying I think he was wrong, but I have great respect for him and I think 99% of this info. is probably correct.

I saw Madsen's article today about Cheney's secret team.
9/11 Coordinated by Cheney says Wayne Madsen
http://granddelusion.wordpress.com/

Good article but he doesn't get in to the Israeli connection.

He wrote an article last year that connects the dots between this group and Israel.

Cheney secret team involved saboteurs as well as assassins

You do realize that it makes it difficult for people like Wayne Madsen to expose the fact that there is Israeli involvement as we all know along with Pakistani, Saudi, German, British, and mostly US involvement if you misinterpret his work and say: 'see he is saying it is primarily israel that controls everything".

i mean wtf? are you capable of realizing that a global elite answers to no specific population and only get into the club if they can prove how much they can squash their own populations.
