Former Ptech Officer Arrested for SBA Loan Fraud

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!]

Special thanks to Please Wake Up! for leaking the info...


I just heard on the news that there are possible arrests to be made at P-Tech in terms of security briefs ... re: Homeland Security, terrorism   

It means nothing to me at this point considering that I haven't had time to mull over all the info in this thread ... but it caught my eye.

Carry on...

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.

U.S. Military to Install Global Internet Architecture Giving a “God-like” View of Planet
http://www.infowars.com/u-s-military-to-install-global-internet-architecture-giving-a-god-like-view-of-planet/
Chris Paine Infowars July 13, 2009

“Possibly the single most transforming thing in our force,” Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld has said, “will not be a weapons system, but a set of interconnections.”

Anyone who has ever been a fan of the Terminator mythos knows about the all seeing, all knowing global computer network known as Skynet. Well, the U.S. Military is working on the real deal! The GIG, or Global Information Grid is a worldwide surveillance network that will give anyone linked into it instant information, at the users request, about anything, anytime, anywhere in the world! This project, which began in 2003 under the guidance of Donald Rumsfeld, will give users a “God-Like” view of the entire world.   
   
   
   The Global Information Grid, which began in 2003 under the guidance of Donald Rumsfeld, will give users a “God-Like” view of the entire world.
   


Robert J. Stevens, chief executive of the Lockheed Martin Corporation, the nation’s biggest military contractor, said he envisioned a “highly secure Internet in which military and intelligence activities are fused,” shaping 21st-century warfare in the way that nuclear weapons shaped the cold war. Every member of the military would have “a picture of the battle space, a God’s-eye view,” he said. “And that’s real power.”

But wait, there’s more!

It seems the U.S. Air Force is investing huge sums of money, which began at a summit at the University of North Dakota, into the development of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Army! Thats right folks, and there is a flavor for everyone planned for full force deployment by 2047! Not only is their the Predator and Global Hawk that the world has grown so familiar with, but they are also developing mid- and short-range UAVs as well. All of which are currently capable of autonomously taking off, flying en route to the “mission area” and landing, allowing for minimal human interaction. The real crazy stuff comes in the form of Fly insect-shaped UAV designed for espionage. These micro-sized vehicles are capable of full audio and video transmission making secrecy a thing of the past!

As if that wasn’t enough, the payload on each of these machines vary from Infrared/Electro-optical missiles to being able to deploy nanomachine weapons engineered in various different ways. Able to infect the target(s) resulting in whatever devious malaise they are programed with and ultimately resulting in death.

There you have it folks, if they have their way, there will be a global government able to know everything your doing at anytime of the day as well as all your personal information. Able to respond to any threat instantly, allowing the elitist scum to kick back and relax while anyone defying their wishes is eradicated by an unmanned vehicle using any number of weapon types, including nanomachines, to finish the job. Include the eugenics going on today and the successful depopulation of the planet and you have a corporate elitist theme park!

Look at what these assholes were arrested for:

"...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."

WTF?

Their business went up 1,000% at least since 9/11!!!

They helped pull off 9/11!!!

This is just like Silverstein getting insurance money for his participation in 9/11!!!

bwaaaahahaa!!!

There has to be a Full Fledged US Attorney who is overseeing the case, who could it be?

This case is being overseen by many, including Holder himself! No f-ing way it is not!

Do not let Boston FBI cover this up AGAIN!!!

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

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.

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.”

FBI shut down investigation into Saudi Terror Cell in Boston
http://www.madcowprod.com/index45.html
February 5, 2004 -- Venice, Florida. by Daniel Hopsicker



A software company called Ptech, founded by a Saudi financier placed on  America’s Terrorist List in October 2001, had access to the FAA’s entire computer system for two years before the 9/11 attack.

Last week, when the National 9/11 Commission held hearings on The Aviation Security System and the 9/11 Attack, government and aviation officials described a system unprepared for the events that unfolded on September 11. None of them, however, mentioned security breaches involving  “Saudi terrorists in the basement of the FAA.” 

Yet that's what happened, according to a high-level risk analyst who had troubling dealings with the firm.

"Ptech had a couple of very troubling client relationships," states risk architect and whistleblower Indira Singh, "one of which was with the FAA. One of the 'persons of interest' in the investigation had a team in the basement of the FAA for two years."

"P-tech worked on a project that revealed all information processes and issues that the FAA had with the National Airspace Systems Agency, NAS," Singh said.

How far can this go?

We all know that ultimatley, all investigations are going to lead back to 9/11, and once that happens, they stop investigating.  

Will Cheney//Bush Administration officials be arrested and given subpoenas?

I just don't get what's gonna happen when the people doing the prosecuting were the ones committing the crimes in the first place - lol - should be getting vvveerrryyy interesting now with this PTECH minion arrested and charged

I wonder if he'll rat on other 9/11 insiders to save himself

But Sane, we all know Holder is a tool and a relic from the Clinton Administration...Someone I personally am not relying on to do the right thing and prosecute.

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

John Vincent. [Source: Patriot TV]
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. [Federal News Service, 6/2/2003]

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).

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 ...

Indira Singh/PTech deep moles in FAA help accomplish 9/11! WTF??
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x2203166
Thu Aug-12-04 03:02 PM

   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. Now that I think of it, I HEARD her on the radio.....Sirius Left

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.

IBM To Deliver World’s First 20 Petaflop Supercomputer By 2012


IBM will attempt to break its own record in petaflop/s by 2012, when it has promised to deliver a new supercomputer that will work approximately 20 times faster than its Roadrunner system. The 20 petaflops supercomputer, dubbed “Sequioa,” will be housed by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, and will be used primarily in simulations of nuclear weapons.
 
By comparison, Roadrunner, the supercomputer at Los Alamos National Laboratory, has a top performance of 1.105 petaflop/s, while the Jaguar supercomputer at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (developed by Cray), posted a top performance of 1.059 petaflop/s. Both systems are operated by the U.S. Department of Energy.
 
The Sequoia system will include 1.6 million processor cores, 96 racks, and over 98,000 computing nodes. The supercomputer is part of an agreement between IBM and the U.S. Department of Energy on the next generation BlueGene systems that will go beyond any performance level we see today.
 
In addition to Sequoia, IBM will also introduce Dawn, a smaller supercomputer that will be delivered this year, with a performance of 500 teraflop/s. Dawn will also be used by the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) in nuclear simulations.
 
These simulations are only the beginning, and represent only a small fraction of what these supercomputers could provide. These systems could ultimately be used in more accurate predictions of weather phenomena, but also in creating climate change models or to predict earthquakes.
 
According to last year’s Top 500 Supercomputers, nine of the ten supercomputers of the world are located in the United States, seven of them being operated by the Department of Energy.
 
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory hosts the IBM BlueGene/L system, the fourth most powerful in the world. The most powerful system outside the United States, and the largest to be operated with Windows HPC 2008 operating system, is the Chinese Dawning 5000A at the Shanghai Supercomputer Center.

IBM To Build 20 Petaflop "Sequoia" Supercomputer For US DoE

Computing giant IBM, otherwise known as Big Blue, has announced that it will be building the world's fastest supercomputer called Sequoia, with a processing power of 20 Petaflops, for the US government by 2012.

The massive computer will be used in the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California to crunch data in relation with America's military arsenal (nuclear simulation tests) although other civilian uses could be envisaged.

IBM says that Sequoia could match in one hour, what the world population's armed with calculators could achieve in 40 years or so, delivering the processing power of 2 million laptops (assuming each of them has a processing power of 10 Gigaflops). By the time it is released, it will be more powerful than the current Top 500 most powerful super computers put together.

Big Blue has already delivered the first computer that broke the Petaflop barrier and current record holder.. The Roadrunner was delivered last year to the US Department of Energy of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico (ed: DoE gets all the new toys) and is built on AMD Opteron and Cell processors.

Sequoia will be made up of 100,000 PowerPC processors (still unannounced) with 16 cores running at significantly faster speeds than 850MHz and having access to 1.6 Terabyte worth of memory. Its power consumption will be slightly more than the current generation of super computer and it will have the same carbon footprint.

IBM Sequoia: Faster Than the Fastest 500 Supercomputers, Combined


20 petaflops. That's the speed rating of IBM's slated Sequoia supercomputer, the future world's fastest supercomputer that promises to be faster than every system on the Top500 supercomputer list, combined.

So what's all that actually mean? IBM offered us some more tangible ways to wrap your mind around 20 quadrillion mathematical processes per second.

    • If each of the 6.7 billion people on earth had a hand calculator and worked together on a calculation 24 hours per day, 365 days a year, it would take 320 years to do what Sequoia will do in one hour.


    • 20 petaflops could offer a 50x improvement in our capability to predict earthquakes, allowing scientists to predict an earthquake's effects on a building-by-building basis across an area as large as Los Angeles County.

    • 20 petaflops could also provide a 40x improvement in our capability to monitor and forecast weather. This would allow forecasters to predict local weather events that affect areas 100 meters to one kilometer in size, down from their current ten-kilometer ability.

The Sequoia will be powered by 1.6 million cores (specific 45-nanometer chips in development) and 1.6 petabytes of memory. It will be housed in 96 refrigerators spanning roughly 3,000 square feet.

It's for the U.S. Government who will use the system for "uncertainty quantification (UQ) studies" and weapon science calculations. [IBM Supercomputing]
