9/11/2001 Attacks Were An Inside Job > Faux Controversies and Case Studies

Suzanne Jovin was murdered by the 9/11 perps in '98..

(1/3) > >>

Great Haku:
In 1998, Suzanne Jovin, a student at Yale University (Home of the Skull and Bones Society) was brutally murdered on the 4th of December. She was stabbed 17 times. She was finishing her senior thesis, which was due in 4 days. Suzanne Jovin's parents worked for the Max Planck Institute of Germany, her mother was a cell biologist in the department of molecular biology, which her father was the chairman of.

Jovin's body was found with none of her belongings taken and money still in her pocket, disproving any idea that it was a robbery. (http://www.yaleherald.com/article.php?Article=1515) The viciousness of the stabbing indicated that it was someone she knew. Police concluded that this was likely. (http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/Police/TipsCase1.asp)

So, who killed her? Her thesis paper was due in 4 days and she was finishing it up. This is a lead to follow, because it leads to an answer that can help you understand how the 9/11 plan was already written in 1998. They killed her for knowing too much.

Her thesis paper was on Osama Bin Laden, her thesis adviser's subject of expertise. Her thesis adviser was James van de Velde, who was the prime and only suspect of the murder. The mainstream suspicion directed onto him was the idea that he and Jovin might have had a love affair. There was no evidence of this, however. (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=23721) <That article also talks about how van de Velde was a rare Republican in the political science department of Yale, which mostly consisted of Liberal academics.


--- Quote ---    “Meanwhile, Jovin's thesis was on international terrorism, with a specific focus on a Saudi citizen by the name of Osama bin Laden. Even then, some thought that the subject matter might have gotten her killed by sparking the interest of those who sought to protect the terrorist and his work.” – Yale Hearld (12/06/02)

“She chose a subject in Van de Velde's area of expertise: the international terrorist Osama bin Laden..." – Vanity Fair (01/16/06)

This guy was the definition of 'in' when it comes to the US government. A security clearance five levels above top secret! Navy Intell! Pentagon! State Department! Rumored to be CIA! After the murder, he went back to the Pentagon to work there. (http://web.archive.org/web/20020823120227/www.yaledailynews.com/article.asp?AID=13935) He was also an interrogator of Al Qaeda suspects at Guantanamo bay. (http://www.yaledailynews.com/articles/view/9909)

So we have an idea of what might have happened. Jovin discovered some pretty damning information about Bin Laden, and would put it in her thesis, and go on to spread it around the university. What if she came across this story in her research? An article in MSNBC called "Bin Laden Comes Home To Roost"? This story was published the year of the murder! It went into detail about Osama Bin Laden's ties to the CIA.

If she had found an article like that, then she would have done further research and realized that Osama Bin Laden is a CIA/Pentagon asset that is being used as a 'boogeyman' to take the heat for the CIA's scams. She would have spread this information, and gotten the student body talking about it.

This kind of thing happening in the University of Skull & Bones would be unacceptable. If she woke enough people up to Bin Laden being a CIA asset, the entire student body would know just what happened when the 9/11 operation was executed. Her thesis adviser, a Navy Intel spook in the Pentagon, State Department, and Guantanamo who may have worked for the CIA, had to assassinate her. She was complaining about how he wasn't being supportive enough.


--- Quote ---“If the police found no evidence of a romance, they did, however, learn something else. By November, it appears, the professional relationship between Van de Velde and Jovin had broken down almost completely. Although Van de Velde had written her a glowing recommendation for graduate school in late October, Jovin began to feel that he had no time for her. According to a friend of Jovin's, she had tried repeatedly to meet with Van de Velde about her senior essay and had felt that she was rebuffed. In the weeks before she died, says this friend, "she complained bitterly about a bunch of things in that class, and especially his lack of support for her project. He had shown no interest in her work." For a college-thesis adviser basically to check out on a student trying to get feedback on her senior essay would be unusual in any case. But for Van de Velde—a devoted teacher noted for his availability, who would take his students to lunch to help them with their work, and who answered their E-mails within minutes—it would have been downright bizarre. During November, it appears that Jovin was trying to pin down a time to meet with Van de Velde. "They never did get together [then]," says Ira Grudberg. "They couldn't get the dates right and so forth."

By Thanksgiving, Jovin had become upset; her essay was due on December 8. "Suzanne indicated to us during the Thanksgiving break—we were together in California—how deeply she resented the lack of mentoring by this senior thesis advisor," her parents recall. Although Van de Velde denies having received it, Jovin's parents say she had handed in a draft on November 17. She left a second draft with Van de Velde right before the Thanksgiving holiday. Jovin told friends that Van de Velde canceled a meeting on Monday, November 30, because he hadn't read the paper yet, although he says no meeting was scheduled. At a meeting the next day, December 1, he still hadn't read it. "He'd gotten tied up over Thanksgiving and hadn't done it," says Ira Grudberg. "He was very apologetic, and he could see she was upset. That very day and night he made a lengthy review of it and met again with her on December 2, at which time he discussed it with her. She was much, much happier."

According to her parents and a close friend, however, Jovin was far from happy after that meeting. "The last time I talked to Suzanne was … on that evening, very late in the evening," the friend says. "She was still furious … and she was very insecure about what would happen." – Vanity Fair (01/16/06)

Putting even more of the suspicion onto van de Velde, he never had a confirmed alibi and his first two polygraph tests were deemed 'inconclusive'. He passed the third one, but in this one, he was not directly asked whether he killed Jovin or not. He denies the killing, but has never been officially cleared. His apartment is very close to the crime scene. At least one eyewitness saw him near the crime scene, walking near Jovin shortly before the murder.

At the time of the murder, an eyewitness heard a man and a woman arguing. (http://www.wtnh.com/Global/story.asp?S=37027)

Her files have not been released. (http://www.yaledailynews.com/articles/view/4101?badlink=1)

Killtown, who is the source of much of the evidence presented in this post, and a constant inspiration to me as a 9/11 investigator, set up a Memorial/Investigation page into Suzanne Jovin's death. The CIA website JREF launched relentless attacks on him for setting up this page, even called for him to be sued. (Would normal people care that much about a webpage? No, those JREF users were CIA fakes, the forum is a setup). JREF's CIA spooks have blood on their hands for calling for the shut down of this site, which was trying to raise awareness of the Jovin case. (http://killtown.blogspot.com/2007/02/myspace-axes-suzanne-jovin-memorial.html)

And, of course, when CIA shills call for the shut down of a site that could be harmful to their operations, "Myspace Listens". Myspace is owned by Rupert Murdoch (Not a theory, a documented fact. Look it up).

A re-investigation of all the facts indicates that van de Velde was the killer and that Jovin was killed by the perps for what was on her thesis. She was killed approximately five hours after putting her thesis in van de Velde's office, four days before it was due. She complained that he was not being 'supportive enough'. van de Velde was seen by an eyewitness walking behind Jovin 20 minutes before the murder. An eyewitness heard a man and a woman arguing shortly before the murder. van de Velde lives 3 blocks away from the crime scene. Police concluded that she was most likely killed by someone she knew. van de Velde has a deep government background and is an expert on Osama Bin Laden, the subject of Jovin's paper. 


No matter what the CIA agents at JREF/PWOT say.

No matter what Murdoch does to pages looking into this murder.

No matter what the defense contractor-run mainstream media says.

Jovin's death looks to have a link to 9/11, and both crimes must be exposed for what they are: government conspiracies.

jimd3100:
While this is fairly interesting it means absolutely nothing, and just gossip. However show me what the thesis she wrote said, and I would be interested in that. Without the thesis there is no point in looking at this any further, for any suspicion would be speculation based on the thesis. If she was killed because of the thesis I want to read it. Something like "Bin laden is a terrorist and bad" isn't going to get her killed. Frankly unless she really outed him, I can't imagine what could.  I would be extremely interested in reading her thesis, but without access to that I have no further interest in this it's nothing without it.

Well, if they killed her for her thesis, they wouldn't release it. I believe that the entire point of killing her was because they didn't want it to get out that Osama was a CIA/Pentagon asset before the 9/11 plan went into action.. Her discoveries could be spread around the University, which could be disastrous for the NWO.

She easily could have found information that could have outed Osama Bin Laden. In 1998, the year of the murder, MSNBC published a story entitled "Bin Laden Comes Home To Roost", which went into detail about OBL's CIA ties. If she had found this article and did further research on the matter, she would realize that Bin Laden was not a simple terrorist, but an intel-controlled opposition.

BRAVE NEW WORLD
By Michael Moran
MSNBC
NEW YORK, Aug. 24, 1998 - At the CIA, it happens often enough to have a code name: Blowback. Simply defined, this is the term describing an agent, an operative or an operation that has turned on its creators. Osama bin Laden, our new public enemy Number 1, is the personification of blowback. And the fact that he is viewed as a hero by millions in the Islamic world proves again the old adage: Reap what you sow.

Befpre up click on my face and call me naive, let me concede some points. Yes, the West needed Josef Stalin to defeat Hitler. Yes, there were times during the Cold War when supporting one villain (Cambodia’s Lon Nol, for instance) would have been better than the alternative (Pol Pot). So yes, there are times when any nation must hold its nose and shake hands with the devil for the long-term good of the planet.

But just as surely, there are times when the United States, faced with such moral dilemmas, should have resisted the temptation to act. Arming a multi-national coalition of Islamic extremists in Afghanistan during the 1980s - well after the destruction of the Marine barracks in Beirut or the hijacking of TWA Flight 847 - was one of those times.

BIN LADEN’S BEGINNINGS

Terrorist backer?Click here for a list of attacks that Bin Laden is suspected of financing

 
 

As anyone who has bothered to read this far certainly knows by now, bin Laden is the heir to Saudi construction fortune who, at least since the early 1990s, has used that money to finance countless attacks on U.S. interests and those of its Arab allies around the world.

As his unclassified CIA biography states, bin Laden left Saudi Arabia to fight the Soviet army in Afghanistan after Moscow’s invasion in 1979. By 1984, he was running a front organization known as Maktab al-Khidamar - the MAK - which funneled money, arms and fighters from the outside world into the Afghan war.

What the CIA bio conveniently fails to specify (in its unclassified form, at least) is that the MAK was nurtured by Pakistan’s state security services, the Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI, the CIA’s primary conduit for conducting the covert war against Moscow’s occupation.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
By no means was Osama bin Laden the leader of Afghanistan’s mujahedeen. His money gave him undue prominence in the Afghan struggle, but the vast majority of those who fought and died for Afghanistan’s freedom - like the Taliban regime that now holds sway over most of that tortured nation - were Afghan nationals.

Yet the CIA, concerned about the factionalism of Afghanistan made famous by Rudyard Kipling, found that Arab zealots who flocked to aid the Afghans were easier to “read” than the rivalry-ridden natives. While the Arab volunteers might well prove troublesome later, the agency reasoned, they at least were one-dimensionally anti-Soviet for now. So bin Laden, along with a small group of Islamic militants from Egypt, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestinian refugee camps all over the Middle East, became the “reliable” partners of the CIA in its war against Moscow.

WHAT’S ‘INTELLIGENT’ ABOUT THIS?

Though he has come to represent all that went wrong with the CIA’s reckless strategy there, by the end of the Afghan war in 1989, bin Laden was still viewed by the agency as something of a dilettante - a rich Saudi boy gone to war and welcomed home by the Saudi monarchy he so hated as something of a hero.

In fact, while he returned to his family’s construction business, bin Laden had split from the relatively conventional MAK in 1988 and established a new group, al-Qaida, that included many of the more extreme MAK members he had met in Afghanistan.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Most of these Afghan vets, or Afghanis, as the Arabs who fought there became known, turned up later behind violent Islamic movements around the world. Among them: the GIA in Algeria, thought responsible for the massacres of tens of thousands of civilians; Egypt’s Gamat Ismalia, which has massacred western tourists repeatedly in recent years; Saudi Arabia Shiite militants, responsible for the Khobar Towers and Riyadh bombings of 1996.

Indeed, to this day, those involved in the decision to give the Afghan rebels access to a fortune in covert funding and top-level combat weaponry continue to defend that move in the context of the Cold War. Sen. Orrin Hatch, a senior Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee making those decisions, told my colleague Robert Windrem that he would make the same call again today even knowing what bin Laden would do subsequently. “It was worth it,” he said.

“Those were very important, pivotal matters that played an important role in the downfall of the Soviet Union,” he said.

HINDSIGHT OR TUNNEL VISION

It should be pointed out that the evidence of bin Laden’s connection to these activities is mostly classified, though its hard to imagine the CIA rushing to take credit for a Frankenstein’s monster like this.

It is also worth acknowledging that it is easier now to oppose the CIA’s Afghan adventures than it was when Hatch and company made them in the mid-1980s. After all, in 1998 we now know that far larger elements than Afghanistan were corroding the communist party’s grip on power in Moscow.

Even Hatch can’t be blamed completely. The CIA, ever mindful of the need to justify its “mission,” had conclusive evidence by the mid-1980s of the deepening crisis of infrastructure within the Soviet Union. The CIA, as its deputy director Robert Gates acknowledged under congressional questioning in 1992, had decided to keep that evidence from President Reagan and his top advisors and instead continued to grossly exaggerate Soviet military and technological capabilities in its annual “Soviet Military Power” report right up to 1990.

Given that context, a decision was made to provide America’s potential enemies with the arms, money - and most importantly - the knowledge of how to run a war of attrition violent and well-organized enough to humble a superpower.

That decision is coming home to roost.

The only source of her thesis was van de Velde, who claimed to be reading the unfinished conclusion of Jovin's work. Only one problem.. It is known that Jovin never gave him the conclusion. This indicates that he spread false evidence, making him even more of a suspect in this case.

She was killed, no suspects, after writing a thesis about Bin Laden and giving it to her thesis adviser, a deep government Navy Intelligence man and Bin Laden expert with a security clearance level five levels above top secret. van de Velde is never cleared, none of his polygraph tests are compelling, he has no alibi, his apartment is blocks away, and an eyewitness saw him walking behind Jovin approx. 20 minutes before the murder. Another eyewitness heard a man and a woman arguing before the murder. After the murder, van de Velde goes to work in The Pentagon.

It really stinks to me like a black-ops assassination.

Discounting sourced research out of hand...  I guess everyone who wrote a report on bin Laden and handed it to a known intelligence agent got killed, and that is why we should ignore this one.
 
I find this info very interesting, Jim.  Sorry, your opinion is that it is pointless.  It seems very well researched.  You seem to have an interest in silencing this line of thought.  You call it rumour and gossip, but GH has included many MSM links.  The only thing that I think is missing is an interview with an acquiantance of Jovin's, which is really the best you can expect if she was killed to silence her research.  The perp would have taken it(duh).  I can't believe you are here telling someone their research "means absolutely nothing".  How about a link to verify that crappy opinion?  Your proof that Jovin's thesis wasn't the reason for her death is that you can't find her thesis anywhere?  Wow...  ::)
I certainly wouldn't call it nothing, at the very least this is a good start.  Great Haku needs to interview some acquaintances and see if the girl said anything to them about her research.

Let me add something...Notice that van de Velde worked for U.S. Naval Intelligence and was at Stanford.

On April 4, 1992 Andreas Drexler placed an ad for his 1974 Impala on a usenet site.  Two weeks later he would leave the campus of Stanford University in this same car and drive across country.  Inside the Impala Drexler had at least one firearm and over 2,000 rounds of ammo.  The following day, 4/23/92, he would fatally shoot his ex-girlfriend Susan Clements and her friend Steven Molen in Eigenmann Hall Dormitory on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington, Indiana. 

After shooting Molen and Clements, Drexler fled into the night with his gun, leaving behind the Impala and his extra ammo.  Instead of returning to the car he ran to a nearby neighborhood, in a city he did not know and fatally shot himself while cowering behind the shrubs of a small house.  Andreas Drexler was a German national studying computer science at Stanford University.  He has been credited with developing the first model of MURPHI, a computer language designed as a “DEBUGGING AID” for computer programs.   

According to the copyright for Murphi,  “The new version was almost entirely reimplemented by Ralph Melton during the summer and fall of 1992.”  Meaning, of course, that Mr. Melton and the Murphi team reworked Andreas Drexler’s original program immediately after his death.  The group acknowledges in this same document that they received financial support from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the U.S. Office of Naval Research.

Less than 7 months prior to Drexler's rampage, another brilliant foreign born student killed his research team at Iowa University.  According to the NYT Gang Lu was one of only three hundred research experts on plasma energy(1990).  He shot and killed four people before leaving Van Allen Hall and killing an administrator before shooting himself as police closed in.  Gang Lu sent five letters to the University prior to his rampage...several were for the media.  Gang Lu was working under a contract from NASA.  I wonder who kept Gang Lu's plasma notes?


Now, let's overlay the Gang Lu and Andreas Drexler "events" and see if a familiar picture develops.  Drexler left stanford(where he worked for DARPA and Naval Research) and killed a man and woman in a dorm before fleeing on foot.  Gang Lu sent letters to the media before going into a University hall and gunning down multiple people.  Both killed themselves as police closed in.  Both were foreign nationals.  Doesn't sound too much like Cho at VT.  I can throw in another foreign national who killed people on campus(but was apprehended by classmates before he could kill himself). 

Ten years later(After Drexler) a naturalized U.S. citizen from Nigeria opened fire at the Appalachian School of Law, killing three and wounding several others.  After running out of ammo he was subdued by fellow students.  He later told reporters that, “I was sick, I was sick.  I need help.”  Peter Odighizuwa also told the judge, “I was supposed to see my doctor.  He was supposed to help me out…I don’t have my medication.”  In this same article “Peter O” is described as a quiet loner by some, and “abrasive” by others who claimed he had several outbursts in class.

The judge at his preliminary hearing assigns Peter O an attorney named James C. Turk Jr., saying, “Once you’ve talked with him, I’m sure you’ll see he can help you.”  James C. Turk Jr. is the son of the Honorable James C. Turk a U.S. District Judge in Virginia.  His mother is Barbara Turk who is president of the Saint Albans foundation, which seeks charity support of St. Albans Hospital in Radford, Virginia.  The Saint Albans Behavioral Hospital is where Cho Seung-Hui was ordered for treatment by a Virginia court in 2005.  Peter O escaped a death sentence by admitting his guilt, which is quite lenient for a state which has a strong history of capital punishment.  According to Wikipedia, Virginia has executed more people than any other state in the union, including Texas.  One of his victims was L. Anthony Sutin, an expert on constitutional and election law and former assistant attorney general(In the Clinton Administration) who was a vocal critic of the 2000 presidential election.  Peter O now claims James Turk is involved in a government conspiracy to suppress information about his case.  MKULTRA?

College's C.I.A. Links Cause Furor, and Soul-Searching

By WILLIAM GLABERSON,
Published: June 20, 1991
The disclosure that a college president worked secretly for the Central Intelligence Agency while on leave has touched off a furious battle here, complete with stolen documents, bitter personal attacks, international outrage and an intense debate over ties between intelligence agencies and academia.

The dispute about links between the C.I.A. and the Rochester Institute of Technology has led to calls for the resignation of the president, M. Richard Rose, and prompted an unusual public defense by the C.I.A. of its need for contact with academia -- the "cloak and gown" relationship, as it was described in a document stolen from the president's office and mailed to the local press.

The controversy began with the news in April that Mr. Rose, who was a Deputy Secretary of Defense in the Nixon Administration, was working at the C.I.A. during a four-month leave, and that even university trustees had not been informed of his whereabouts until he was already at work at C.I.A. headquarters in Langley, Va.

A C.I.A. spokesman, Mark Mansfield, and critics of the agency agree that Mr. Rose may be the highest-level sitting academic official ever to have been identified as having such close ties to the agency...

Project roots out terrorists on college campuses

Issue date: 9/4/06 Section: News

For the past five years, the FBI and the Education Department secretly scrutinized tens of millions of federal financial aid and college enrollment records in search of terrorists.

   The effort, dubbed "Project Strike Back,'' was created by the department's Office of Inspector General. After Sept. 11, 2001, its main mission of agency oversight and loan-fraud investigations was expanded to include counterterrorism work.

   At the time, investigators believed some funding for the 9/11 attacks came from identity theft and fraud, criminal activity the Education Department had experience investigating, according to a still-secret memo obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.

   The department's central database stores information on all of the roughly 14 million students who apply for financial aid each year, even after they have repaid the loans.

   To search for "potential terrorist activity,'' the FBI gave the department what the bureau considered suspicious names to run through its databases, said bureau spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan. The bureau made requests as recently as February.
...
   However, the Education Department is steadily expanding its records on students, to the point that it could soon make a student's "permanent record'' a reality. It has already expanded its records system to include more electronic information, such as photos, scanned documents and audio and video from its investigations.  ??? Implies on campus investigators.

And the department envisions a database that would track individual students' enrollment, performance and financial aid information from elementary school to college and beyond to ensure greater accountability from colleges and universities that receive substantial federal grants.

It is well established that the intelligence agencies recruit on college campuses.  They also fund research and monitor students(Everyone knows that COINTELPRO cut it's teeth in the sixties infiltrating the college campus peace and civil rights movements).  You need to bring some evidence when you want to knock down someone else's research.  You have proven nothing, except that you don't believe this girl was murdered for her research.  At least Great Haku provides circumstantial evidence...you provide shit.  You saying that without the paper the theory is bogus is like me saying, "If flight 77 didn't crash into the pentagon, then show me where it is..."    How about some constructive criticism?

Good work Great Haku!  Do some follow up or get a character witness and you will have me sold 100%.  Consider interviewing police or social contacts of the victim(was she in a sorority?).  Find out if she had a friend at work.  Very interesting.  Don't stop digging until you can convince Jim.  ;)
