President Bush’s chief counter-terrorism adviser
President Bush’s chief counter-terrorism adviser Richard Clarke has revealed that the CIA under George Tenet attempted to recruit some of the 9/11 "Al Qaeda" terrorists prior to the attack of September 11, 2001, but that after the attempt failed, Tenet and his senior CIA staff covered up the botched recruitment effort.
The revelation is yet one more nail in the coffin of what has become the most discredited U.S. government report since the infamous Warren Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
In fact, the Warren Report received another blow after it was revealed that First Lady Jacqueline revealed in 1964 to historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. that she believed that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was behind the assassination of her husband in Dallas.
The revelations by Mrs. Kennedy and Clarke show that the United States government cannot be trusted to investigate misdeeds carried out with the full knowledge and support of senior officials of the CIA and the White House.
The 9/11 attack represents one such high-level
Ever since the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993, O’Neill’s pursuit of Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda had been dogged.
After further terrorist attacks at,
...O’Neill’s biggest problem was not Al Qaeda,
it was resistance from top officials inside the U.S. government.
Both have said that their committee was lied to
by government officials and that important information was covered up and
not released to committee investigators…
Zelikow was appointed as the executive director of the 9/11 Commission and he had the task of avoiding any investigations that would look at the roles of,
...in crafting the ingredients that permitted the 9/11 attacks to be carried out without a hitch.
Zelikow has a storied career at debunking any
theory that does not comport with government doctrine, including his many
years of attacking anyone who disbelieves the Warren Commission’s myths
about the assassination of President Kennedy.
According to U.S. intelligence sources, the FBI and Justice Department sat on volumes of translations of Arabic telephone intercepts gathered before the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center from U.S.- and Sudan-based Muslim militants who once worked for U.S. intelligence in the mujaheddin war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
The critical intelligence, which demonstrated a link between the CIA and "Afghan Arab" muhajeddin forces, including those loyal to Osama bin Laden, was never introduced into the trial of the Brooklyn - and Jersey City-based cell that included,
The New York and New Jersey cell also included
Ali Mohammed, a graduate of the U.S. Army’s Special Forces School at Fort
Bragg, North Carolina, who, while an active duty member of the Special
Forces, secretly traveled to Afghanistan to train Bin Laden’s forces and
provided him with special intelligence on U.S. "soft targets" for terrorist
attacks, and Wadih el-Hage, Osama bin Laden’s personal secretary, who was
also a resident of the United States.
Fitzgerald went on to become the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois and cut his teeth indicting and having convicted two successive Illinois governors for corruption,
Both cases were
politically-tainted show trials.
A CIA source involved with the Bosnia Defense Fund, used to collect donations from Arab and Muslim countries for the Bosnian war against Serbia and Croatia, revealed that the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FINCEN) was concerned that money transferred by Riggs Bank to the Bosnian Defense Fund’s account at the Central Bank in Sarajevo, was "bleeding" to terrorist elements believed to be linked to Osama bin Laden and "Al Qaeda."
Riggs was the major bank serving Saudi
ambassador to the U.S. Prince Bandar and his wife Princess Haifa and it was
a bank with family ties to
George H.W. and
George W. Bush.
The Bosnia link to "Al Qaeda" was important. In
fact, bin Laden had reportedly not only visited Bosnia, but carried at least
one Bosnian diplomatic passport and had interfaced with Bosnian diplomats in
Two internal U.S. government documents revealed that among the 120 Israeli “art students” who attempted to penetrate the security of dozens of Federal office buildings and who visited the homes of scores of U.S. law enforcement personnel during 2000 and 2001 were some who used addresses and mail drops in southern Florida and Texas near those used by a number of the 9/11 hijackers.
The information came from a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Report drafted in June 2001 on the activities of the art students and a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) list of the hijackers and other terrorist suspects, including a known Mossad agent, Dominick Suter, who ran an Israeli moving company in Weehawken, New Jersey.
The FBI list was accidentally released in early
October 2001 on a Finnish government web site.
All five were deported to Israel without ever having been formally charged.
The DEA memo specifically stated that the
Israelis casing federal offices and employees’ homes may have had ties to an
“Islamic fundamentalist group.”
"Our Purpose was to document the ’Event’"
Survivors or the World Trade Center collapse and
first responders with the New York Police Department, New York-New Jersey
Port Authority Police, New York Fire Department, and others were not invited
to the tenth anniversary ceremonies at "Ground Zero" on September 11, 2011.
Americans of all
ages and backgrounds are now subjected to intrusive body searches at
airports that would have been seen as outrageous abuses of government
authority fifteen years ago.
There was little forensic
evidence to prove Bin Laden was killed. In any case, most of the members of
US Navy SEAL Team 6, which carried out the attack on Bin Laden, were
recently in an attack on their helicopter in Afghanistan.
The Ultimate Triumph of the Strategy of Tension
12 September 2011
Obama underscored the continuity of his policies with those of his predecessor
by celebrating with him the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks
and of imperial
After years of employing the fascistic “strategy
of tension” in Western Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America,
the neo-conservatives who dominated the
Bush administration on the eve of
September 11, 2001, were confident that the ultimate act of destroying the
World Trade Center in New York and bombing the Pentagon, in addition to
destroying a yet unknown target by United flight 93 - shot down by U.S. Air
Force fighter-interceptors over Pennsylvania - would bring about the sea
change foreseen by the neo-conservatives.
The geo-social-political “Armageddon” hoped for by such neo-fascist philosophers as Professors Samuel Huntington and Bernard Lewis would be a final battle that would see the downfall of Islamic governments and regimes from Morocco to Indonesia and the triumph of “western civilization.”
In fact, “western civilization” is code for the
twin pillars of capitalist-backed militarism and Zionism.
The September 11, 2001, false flag attacks in New York and Virginia succeeded in laying the groundwork for a concerted disinformation, psychological warfare, and propaganda campaign that, ten years following 9/11, are being cited by the corporate media as having ”changed the world.”
Even the date, 9/11, was chosen as a
psychological warfare tool, 9/11 being the emergency phone number used by
Americans to call for assistance from law enforcement and other emergency
However, there were thousands of more facts
presented by those who contradicted the official version of 9/11 than any
dubious explanations presented in the official 9/11 Commission report and
other government documents, including those from the U.S. Senate
Intelligence Committee and the National Institute of Standards and
All of the fear stories were rank nonsense and
not based on any facts.
Nothing was mentioned about Israel’s role in the anthrax attacks and the two failed airplane bombings. The only individuals arrested on 9/11 for suspicion that they were involved in the 9/11 attacks were five employees of Weehawken, New Jersey-based Urban Moving Systems. FBI agents who visited the firm’s warehouse in Weehawken not only found bomb-making materials but traces of anthrax.
The owner of the firm, Dominick Suter, was later
discovered in a joint CIA-FBI counter-intelligence database to be a Mossad
agent. Some of the Israeli “movers” arrested were also found to be in the
It was an Israeli aviation security company, ICTS International, replete with ex-Mossad and ex-Shin Bet officers in its management, that handled airport security at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle Airport and Amsterdam’s Schipol International Airport, where Richard Reid, the “shoe bomber” and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the “underwear bomber,” attempted their amateurish bombing attempts on American Airlines flight 63 and Northwest Airlines flight 253, respectively.
ICTS also shared security responsibilities at
Boston’s Logan Airport on September 11, 2001, the airport where American
Airlines flight 11 was allegedly hijacked by Mohammed Atta and flown into
the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
Even statements by
Binyamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak on American television that 9/11 was
beneficial to Israel were ignored by the media. Those who were brave enough
to point out
Israeli connections to 9/11 were intimidated by the old canard
that they were “anti-Semitic.”
Similar stories, such as the following, also quickly evaporated into the ether:
Osama bin Laden, the accused mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, was a character directly out of Hollywood central casting. Bin Laden initially denied he had anything to do with the attacks.
In an interview carried by the September 28, 2001 edition of the Pakistani newspaper Ummat Karachi Bin Laden stated,
Even FBI director Robert Mueller stated, the,
Few media outlets reported on Bin Laden’s longstanding ties to the U.S. intelligence community, links that were maintained after the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
According to classified documents from French intelligence, Al Qaeda and Bin Laden had still been under the operational control of U.S. and British “security services” until 1995, fully two years after the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. As of 1996, the U.S. State Department continued to refuse to list Al Qaeda as a terrorist organization.
Bin Laden’s past ties to the CIA may have sealed his fate.
Just as with others who worked for the CIA and were then discarded like garbage, including,
...Osama Bin Laden may have been used as a convenient decoy by the actual perpetrators of 9/11, those who wanted to blame Arabs and Muslims as part of their "grand schemes” the Project for the New American Century that hoped for a “new Pearl Harbor,” those who wanted a “clash of civilizations” between Judeo-Christianity and Islam, and those who saw a continued strategy of tensions to bring about their agenda.
The strategy of tension would not end with 9/11 and would be repeated in the following years in,
The real architects of 9/11 are still at-large and continue their strategy of tension campaign.
On September 11, 2011, many of the key perpetrators will gather at the “Ground Zero” site in New York to publicly honor those who were killed in the attacks, but privately celebrate their accomplishments over the last ten years.
The corporate media will continue to propagate the myth of 9/11 and the public, they hope, will continue to accept the official version of the events.
