- Americans are now beginning to pay the price for sleeping
through history classes, ignoring important information in the alternative
media and neglecting to participate in their own political process.
- They find themselves in a new war --- the War on Terrorism.
This is a war they never asked for and never envisioned, anesthetized as
we all are by the flickering tube of distraction. It is a war predicated
on the premise that a sneak attack was made on the United States September
- Unlike previous wars, there is no Berlin or Tokyo to
capture and hence, no victory to be won, except for those who profit from
war. The real victims of this war will be the average American citizen,
right along with the starving Afghan.
- This new war might well be compared to the failed War
on Drugs and the nearly forgotten War on Poverty. No clear victory has
yet been achieved over the misuse of drugs or the ravages of poverty within
our own nation. Our prisons are overflowing with drug offenders with no
appreciable lessening of either demand or supply and our basic civil rights
have been badly mauled.
- Just like those failed campaigns, the War on Terrorism
for the foreseeable future will set us all on a costly course of restrictions
on individual freedom, ever more centralized authority and omnipresent
- And where are the voices of those who would argue the
merits of this new war? The airwaves and newspapers only ratchet the fear
factor upwards each day with little or no effort to hear the many thoughtful
Americans who are asking themselves, "Do I really need to give up
my freedoms in order to save them?"
- So with flags flying on the antennae of our gas-guzzling
vehicles and love of country pulsing in our hearts, we march off to yet
another war for oil.
- Wars For Oil
- Yes, oil. Petroleum has been behind all recent wars,
beginning in the early 1940's, when a mostly rural and isolationist America
was suddenly thrown into a world war as a reaction to the Japanese attack
on Pearl Harbor. Americans mourned the loss of some 3,000 soldiers and
civilians in Hawaii and, in righteous indignation, allowed their country
to be turned into a giant military camp.
- The federal government, which had consolidated so much
power unto itself under the Depression-busting policies of President Franklin
Roosevelt, grew even stronger and more centralized under the aegis of "national
security". It all seemed quite natural and necessary at the time.
- But serious students of history now know that even that
"good war" was the result of machinations by a handful of wealthy
and powerful men. By closing off Japan's oil supplies in the summer of
1941, Roosevelt, the quintessential Wall Street insider, ensured an eventual
attack on the United States. It has now been well established that Roosevelt
and a few close advisers knew full well that Pearl Harbor would be attacked
on Dec. 7, 1941, but chose to allow it to happen to further their agenda
for launching American into war. (The details of this may be found in my
book Rule by Secrecy.) The Vietnam War was prosecuted by men who were close
to Roosevelt and the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) who had long voiced
a desire to gain control over Indochina's oil, magnesium and rubber assets.
Again a provocation was created. In August, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson
whipped Congress into a frenzy claiming that North Vietnamese gunboats
had attacked the US Sixth Fleet in the Gulf of Tonkin off the coast of
Vietnam. "Our boys are floating in the water," he cried. Congress
responded by passing the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution which bypassed the Constitution
and gave Johnson the power to wage war to stop attacks on Americans. It
was the beginning of the real shooting Vietnam War.
- And it was all a lie. No evidence has ever been brought
forward that such an attack took place. In fact, editors for US News &
World Report (July 23, 1984) called it "The 'Phantom Battle' That
Led to War."
- While America was waging war against North Vietnam, which
we were told was merely a puppet of communist Russia and China, Johnson
was encouraged by his CFR advisers to grant the Soviet Union loans at higher
levels than offered during World War II when they were our ally. US-backed
loans provided Russia with the means to build facilities which turned out
war materials that were then sent to North Vietnam for use against American
troops. This was a good example of the duplicity of our modern wars.
- The Gulf War was all about oil, from the wells in Kuwait
slant drilling into Iraq's southern reserves to the destruction of the
oil fields at its finish. Here we found a new Hitler in Saddam Hussein,
an enemy armed and financed by the CIA, an agency whose top officials have
long been connected to oil men CFR members and other globalists (See Rule
- Saddam Hussein, strapped for cash due to his eight-year
war against Iran on behalf of the US, decided to regain Kuwait as a means
of increasing his income. Kuwait had been carved out of southern Iraqi
by British troops. When asked her thoughts on this move, US Ambassador
April Glaspie replied that the US government had "no opinion"
on the matter and that the matter of Kuwait was not associated with America.
But when he moved his troops into Kuwait, Bush mobilized a United Nations
force against him, backed by a $4 billion secret fund provided by his business
associates in Saudi Arabia.
- Yet, as those patriotic soldiers closed in on Saddam,
the whole war stopped and George H. W. Bush's old business partner is still
in power. It appears to have been yet another provocation. And as in Vietnam,
even as we prepared to fight against Saddam, the American taxpayers backed
$500 million in loans that he used to purchase arms for use against our
- Caspian Sea Oil Coveted
- Today the real issue is the rich oil reserves of the
Caspian Sea region, the prize sought by Hitler whose drive to that area
was stopped only by the tenacious Russian defense of the Volga River city
- In the late 1970's, with the Soviet discovery of vast
untapped oil in Chechnya, the region was ripe for exploitation but control
over Afghanistan was needed to ensure the safety of a pipeline to bring
the oil to world markets. But after almost 10 years of brutal, no-quarter
fighting against Afghans and Arab mercenaries backed by the United States,
including Osama bin Laden, the Soviets were forced to withdraw. The economic
stress of this Russo-Afghan War was enough to topple communism in the early
- Now the international bankers and oilmen have a foothold
in cash-strapped Russia and the estimated $40 billion in Caspian Sea oil
is again attracting serious attention. In 1997, six international companies
and the Government of Turkmenistan formed Central Asian Gas Pipeline, Ltd.
(CentGas) to build a 790-mile-long pipeline to Pakistan and perhaps on
to the New Delhi area of India.
- Leading this consortium was Unocal Corporation, whose
president, John F. Imle, Jr., said the project would be "the foundation
for a new commerce corridor for the region - often referred to as the Silk
Road for the 21st Century."
- But problems developed with the fundamentalist Muslim
government in Afghanistan, not the least of which was the Taliban government's
treatment of women which prompted feminist demonstrations against firms
seeking to do business there. Additionally, the Taliban regime was creating
chaotic conditions by pitting the various Islamic sects against each other
in order to maintain control. In the mid-1999, Unacol withdrew from the
pipeline consortium, citing the hazardous political situation and the project
- Notice that in President Bush's declaration of war on
terrorism, he never mentioned terrorists in Northern Ireland or the Palestinian
suicide bombers. Attention was only focused on Afghanistan, the one nation
necessary to complete the lucrative pipeline. It should also be noted that
Vice President Dick Cheney headed Halliburton, a giant oil industry service
company and is generally thought to be more powerful than the president.
- Today it can be demonstrated that military action against
Afghanistan has been in the works long before the Sept. 11 attacks.
- AFGHAN ACTION PLANNED LONG AGO
- As reported by BBC's George Arney, former Pakistani Foreign
Secretary Niaz Naik was alerted by American officials in mid-July that
military action against Afghanistan would be launched by mid-October. At
a UN-sponsored meeting concerning Afghanistan in Berlin, Naik was informed
that unless bin Laden was handed over, America would take military action
to either kill or capture both him and Taliban leader Mullah Omar as the
initial step in installing a new government there.
- It should be noted, however, that American intervention
in Afghanistan began years ago, at least six months prior to the Soviet
invasion in December, 1979.
- In a 1998 interview with former National Security Adviser
Zbigniew Brzezinski in the French publication Le Nouvel Observateur, the
significant portions of which never made it to the United States, he admitted
that American activities in Afghanistan actually began six months prior
to the Soviet action.
- Brzezinski said the Jimmy Carter administration began
secretly funding opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul in July of
1979 with the full knowledge such action might provoke a Soviet invasion.
Soviet leaders at the time argued the invasion was necessary to thwart
American aggression in Afghanistan. The former national security advisor,
who helped found the globalist Trilateral Commission, expressed no regret
at this provocation, stating, "That secret operation was an excellent
idea. Itbrought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the
Soviet empire." It also produced the Taliban regime which we are fighting
today, as well as Osama bin Laden.
- By 1984, with Vice President George H. W. Bush overseeing
the Afghan situation, bin Laden was in charge of the Maktab al-Khidamir
(MAK) which funneled money, arms and manpower from the outside world into
the war against the Soviets. He soon helped form a polyglot formation of
Arabic troops from Egypt, Pakistan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestinian refugee
camps, whom the CIA found easier to deal with than the Muslim fundamentalists
- There should be considerable soul-searching about America's
role in arming and training an international group of Muslim extremists
in Afghanistan long after their comrades destroyed the Marine barracks
in Beruit and hijacked numerous airliners.
- Little noticed in the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks were
reports that China had signed a pact with the Afghans and was quietly inducted
into the controversial World Trade Organization, action which under normal
circumstances would have drawn widespread protest. Although such a pact
is unconfirmed at this time, Pakistani General Pervez Musharraf, chairman
of their joint chiefs and chief of the Pakistani Army Staff, this years
visited China at their request and discussed matters of mutual interest.
- Although, it is claimed that Pakistan is aiding the US
in the current War Against Terrorism, the State Department's coordinator
for counterterrorism, Michael Sheehan, told a Senate Foreign Relations
subcommittee that Pakistan supports and trains terrorist groups in Afghanistan
- This raises the specter of Chinese intervention should
US forces become bogged down in mountainous Afghanistan. This prospect
is particularly unsettling as back in 1555, the French prophet Nostradamus,
who has been proven correct in so many of his prophecies, predicted that
America and Russia would go to war against a coalition made up of Arab
nations and China. Until just recently, such a notion seemed absurd.
- WOULD AMERICANS ATTACK AMERICANS?
- The WTC/Pentagon attacks provided a convenient excuse
to launch the pre-laid plans for military action against Afghanistan. But
were they simply allowed to happen or were they contrived? The question
becomes: Would any American allow an attack on fellow Americans just to
further his own business or political agenda?
- The answer, unfortunately, appears to be "Yes."
- Incredibly, 40-year-old government documents thought
to have been destroyed long ago recently were made public show the US military
in the early 1960's proposed making terrorist attacks in the United States
and blaming them on Fidel Castro.
- These documents are discussed in a recent book on the
National Security Agency (NSA) entitled Body of Secrets: Anatomy of the
Ultra-Secret National Security Agency by James Bamford.
- These documents were produced beginning in late 1961
following the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba that spring. President
John F. Kennedy, angered by the inept actions of the CIA, had shifted responsibility
for Cuba from that agency to the Department of Defense. Here, military
strategists considered plans to create terrorist actions which would alarm
the American population and stampede them into supporting a military attack
- Under consideration in "Operation Northwoods"
- * to create "a series of well-coordinated incidents"
in or around the US Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to include inciting
riots, blowing up ammunition stores, aircraft and ships.
- * to "develop a Communist Cuba terror campaign in
the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington."
- * to "sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida
(real or simulated)..foster attempts on the lives of Cuban refugees in
the United States"
- * to explode bombs in carefully chosen locations along
with the release of "prepared documents" pointing to Cuban complicity.
- * to use fake Russian aircraft to harass civilian airliners.
- * to make "Hijacking attempts against civil air
and surface craft" even to simulating the shooting down of a civilian
- Kennedy rejected Operation Northwoods and senior military
officers ordered the documents destroyed. But someone slipped up and the
papers were discovered by the Assassination Records Review Board and recently
released by the National Archives. More recently, according to The New
York Times (October 28, 1993), an informant named Emad Salem early in 1993
was involved with Middle Eastern terrorists connected to Osama bin Laden
to develop a bomb for use against New York's World Trade Center. Salem,
a former Egyptian Army officer, wanted to substitute a harmless powder
for the explosive but his plan to thwart the attack was blocked by an FBI
official who apparently did not want to expose the inside informant. The
attack was allowed to proceed.
- The February 26 explosion in the WTC resulted in six
deaths, more than 1,000 casualties and damage in excess of half billion
- We now see that creating crises to further political
goals is a methodology well understood and utilized in the 20th century.
Is this the game today? Let's examine the Sept. 11 attack.
- QUESTIONS OVER 9-11
- Superficially, it all seemed straightforward enough.
According to the official story, about 19 suicidal Middle Eastern terrorists,
their hearts full of hatred for American freedom and democracy, hijacked
four airliners, crashing two into the twin towers of New York City's World
Trade Center and a third into the Pentagon. The fourth reportedly crashed
in western Pennsylvania after passengers attempted to fight the terrorists.
- But a series of disturbing questions have arisen. Among
- * Why was the US military preparing war plans against
Afghanistan months before the Sept. 11 attacks? Were they just looking
for some event to propel the normally disinterested American public into
a war as in the past?
- * How could paper documents incriminating bin Laden be
found intact at the WTC but the plane's black recording boxes designed
to withstand crashes were damaged beyond use?
- * Even days and weeks after the WTC attack, why were
news cameramen prevented from photographing the ruins from certain angles,
as complained about by CBS Correspondent Lou Young, who asked, "What
are they afraid we're going to see?"
- * Why has the NYPD liaison to the FBI been sent packing
as a "security risk" as reported in the Oct. 16 New York Times?
Whose security is at risk? The FBI? What is it that the bureau does not
want NYPD to know?
- * How could an obviously sophisticated terrorist plan
involving perhaps as many as 100 persons and in the works for five years
escape the notice of our intelligence services, especially the FBI and
CIA? And why, instead of cashiering those responsible for this intelligence
failure and totally restructuring these agencies, are we doubling their
budgets? Will we now get twice as much failure as before?
- * Why did the South Tower collapse first when it was
not as extensively damaged as the North Tower which burned for almost an
hour and a half before collapsing?
- * Why did many witnesses claim to hear further explosions
within the buildings? And why did the destruction of the WTC towers appear
more like a controlled implosion than a tragic accident?
- * Why did FBI Director Robert Mueller acknowledge that
the list of named hijackers might not contain their real names? Doesn't
everyone have to show a photo ID to claim a boarding pass? Where was the
- * Why was there a discrepancy of 35 names between the
published passenger lists and the official death toll on all four of the
ill-fated flights? Internet Columnist Gary North reported, "the published
names in no instance match the total listed for the number of people on
board." Why the discrepancy?
- * As none of these listed passengers had an Arabic-sounding
names, how did the government know which were the hijackers?
- * Why did the seat numbers of the hijackers given by
a cell phone call from Flight Attendant Madeline Amy Sweeney to Boston
air traffic control not match the seats occupied by the men the FBI claimed
- * Since Saudi Arabia's foreign minister claimed five
of the proclaimed hijackers were not aboard the death planes and in fact
are still alive and a sixth man on that list was reported to be alive and
well in Tunisia, why are these names still on the FBI list?
- * Why were none of the named hijacker's names on any
of the passenger list? If they all used aliases, how did the FBI identify
them so quickly?
- * Why did one of the named hijackers take luggage on
a suicide flight, then leave it along with an incriminating note in his
car at the airport?
- * As for the overall investigation into the September
attacks, by late October U.S. authorities conceded that most of their promising
leads for finding accomplices and some of their long-held suspicions about
several suspects have unraveled, according to The New York Times. Since
more than 800 people have been arrested and more than 365,000 tips have
been received from the public, why has nothing substantial has been forthcoming
in the largest U.S. criminal investigation in history?
- * Why are none of the nearly 100 people still being sought
by the Federal Bureau of Investigation seen as a major suspect?
- * Why are we bombing Afghanistan when apparently none
of the listed hijackers were Afghans, but instead Arabs from various Middle
Eastern nations? Since Iraq was implicated in the 1993 WTC attack, why
are we not bombing that "rogue" nation?
- * Why does the heavy drinking and searching for hookers
by some of the hijackers in Boston, as reported by Reuters New Service,
sound more like mercenaries carousing before a mission than pious religious
fundamentalists about to meet their maker?
- * How did the terrorists obtain top-secret White House
and Air Force One codes and signals, the excuse for hustling President
Bush all across the country on Sept. 11? Was this evidence of an inside
job or was it, as reported by Fox News, evidence that former FBI employee
and double agent Robert Hanssen delivered an updated version of the purloined
computer software Promis to his Russian handlers who passed it along to
bin Laden? Does this software, which was stolen from a US company during
the Reagan Administration by Justice Department officials under Attorney
General Ed Meese, allow outsiders carte blanch entrée to our top
security computers? (Hanssen's last job before being arrested as a spy
was to upgrade the FBI's intelligence computer systems.)
- * If United Flight 93 crashed as the result of a struggle
between heroic passengers and the hijackers, why did witnesses tell of
a second plane which followed it down, falling burning debris, no deep
crater and crash wreckage spread over a six-mile area indicative of an
- * Why did news outlets describe the throat-cutting and
mutilation of passengers on Flight 93 with box cutters when Time magazine
on Sept. 24 reported that one of the passengers called home on a cell phone
to report, "We have been hijacked. They are being kind."?
- As Internet pundit Gary North stated, "We need a
theory of the coordinated hijackings that rests on a plausible cause-and-effect
sequence that does not assume the complete failure of both check-in procedures
and the on-board seating procedures on four separate flights on two separate
airlinesI don't see how anyone can make an accurate judgment about who
was behind the attacks until he has a plausible explanation of how hijackers
got onto the planes and were not removed."
- But the federal government aided by a sycophantic mass
media did not allow such rational thinking to interfere with a rush to
judgment that Osama bin Laden was the culprit behind the attacks.
- BIN LADEN AND HIS FRIENDS
- As in the JFK assassination, authorities had a suspect
even before anyone knew for certain what had happened. He was the son of
a wealthy Middle Eastern oil family, Osama bin Laden, who during the Russo-Afghan
War of the 1980s, received arms and financing from the US Government. Despite
the fact that bin Laden has denied any knowledge of the attack, he was
presumed guilty by both the government and the press. No other interpretation
of the attack was allowed in the corporate mass media.
- Bin Laden is a made-to-order enemy, the man reportedly
behind the 1993 WTC attack and a fugitive from United States justice for
more than a decade. It has been noted that the government apparently has
spent more time and money chasing Microsoft's Bill Gates than in capturing
- This may be due to the business connections between our
new terrorist enemy and wealthy American companies.
- According to several reports, including Jonathan Beaty
and S. C. Gwynne's book The Outlaw Bank: A Wild Ride into the Secret Heart
of the BCCI (New York: Random House, 1993) and American Free Press (October
15, 2001), the reincarnation of the Washington newspaper The Spotlight,
Bush family friend James R. Bath used money from Osama bin Laden's brother,
Salem, to open a partnership with George W. Bush in Arbusto Energy, a West
Texas drilling company. Bush believed the word "arbusto" to mean
Bush in Spanish, although it generally refers to a "shrub".
- According to The Houston Chronicle, Salem bin Laden named
Bath his business representative in Texas shortly after the senior Bush
was named CIA director by appointed President Gerald Ford in 1975. It was
the Bush family, particularly Jeb and Neil, who were involved in the savings
and loan debacle from 1989 to 1993 that cost taxpayers more than $500 billion.
- Through a tangled web of Texas oilmen, wealthy Saudi
sheiks and unscrupulous bankers connected to BCCI, the younger Bush eventually
gained a sizable interest in a new oil company called Harken Energy. Two
months before Saddam Hussein sent Iraqi troops into Kuwait, Bush sold two-thirds
of his Harken stock, netting himself nearly a one million dollar profit.
The stock dropped when the Iraqi invasion began.
- It should be noted that during the Persian Gulf War,
it was Binladen Brothers Construction (now the Binladen Group) that helped
build airfields for US aircraft. The bin Laden brothers were then described
as "a good friend of the US government".
- Later the bin Laden firm continued to be hired to construct
an American air base in Saudi Arabia despite the fact that Osama had already
been blamed for terrorist acts such as the truck bombing of the Khobar
Towers at the Dhahran base which killed 19 Americans. A WorldNetDaily writer
commented, "So let's get this straight. Osama blows up our facilities,
and his family gets the contract for rebuilding them. Do you get the feeling
there is more going on than meets the eye?"
- Osama's older brother, Salem, was killed in the strange
crash of an ultralight aircraft in 1988. The single-passenger craft suddenly
and inexplicably veered into high-voltage electric power lines near San
Antonio, Texas. The BCCI bank was closed by federal investigators in 1991
after suffering some $10 billion in losses. BCCI was a Pakistani-run institution
with front companies in the Cayman Islands that used secret accounts for
global money-laundering and was used by U. S. intelligence to funnel money
to bin-Laden and the Mujahideen in Afghanistan fighting against the Soviet-backed
- Another close connection between bin Laden and the Bush
family is a $12-billion private international investment firm known as
the Carlyle Group. Although it has removed its web site since the Sept.
11 attacks, it is know that Carlyle directors include former Reagan Secretary
of Defense Frank Carlucci, former Bush Secretary of State James Baker and
former Reagan aide and GOP operative Richard Darman. The New York Times
reported that former President Bush was allowed to buy into Carlyle's investments
which involve at least 164 companies around the world.
- According to the Wall Street Journal (Sept. 28, 2001),
"George H. W. Bush, the father of President Bush, works for the bin
Laden family business in Saudi Arabia through the Carlyle Group, an international
consulting firm." It has been confirmed by the senior Bush's chief
of staff that Bush sent a thank you note to the bin Laden family after
a social visit in early 2001.
- With such connections and his son as a sitting President
of the United States, the senior Bush's Carlyle involvement was questioned
by Larry Klayman, chairman and general counsel of Judicial Watch, who said,
"Any foreign government or foreign investor trying to curry favor
with the current Bush Administration is sure to throw business to the Carlyle
Group. And with the former President Bush promoting the firm's investments
abroad, foreign nationals could understandably confuse the Carlyle Group's
interests with the interests of the United States government."
- After detailing some of the Carlyle/bin Laden investments
in several businesses, including aerospace industries, writer Michael C.
Ruppert commented, "In other words, Osama bin Laden's attacks on the
WTC and Pentagon, with the resulting massive increase in the US defense
budget, have just made his family a great big pile of money."
- What makes these business dealings that entangle former
and current American political leaders with Middle Easterners even more
suspect was the announcement that several US firms were being investigated
for short selling stocks just prior to the Sept. 11 attacks.
- SELLING STOCKS SHORT INDICATES FOREKNOWLEDGE
- Short selling of stocks involves the opportunity to gain
large profits by passing shares to a friendly third party, then buying
them back when the price falls. Historically, if this precedes a traumatic
event, it is an indication of foreknowledge. It is widely known that the
CIA uses the Promis software to routinely monitor stock trades as a possible
warning sign of a terrorist attack or suspicious economic behavior.
- A week after the Sept. 11 attacks, the London Times reported
that the CIA had asked regulators for the Financial Services Authority
in London to investigate the suspicious sales of millions of shares of
stock just prior to the terrorist acts. It was hoped the business paper
trail might lead to the terrorists. The Times said market regulators in
Germany, Japan and the US all had received information concerning the short
selling of insurance, airlines and arms companies stock , all of which
fell sharply in the wake of the attacks.
- City of London broker and analyst Richard Crossley noted
that someone sold shares in unusually large quantities beginning three
weeks before the assault on the WTC and Pentagon. He said he took this
as evidence that someone had insider foreknowledge of the attacks.
- "What is more awful than he should aim a stiletto
blow at the heart of Western financial markets?," he added. "But
to profit from it. Words fail me."
- The US Government also admitted it was investigating
short selling, which evinced a foreknowledge of the tragedy. There was
unusually heavy trading in airline and insurance stocks several days before
Sept. 11 which essentially bet on a drop in the worth of the stocks. It
was reported by the Interdisciplinary Center, a counter-terrorism think
tank involving former Israeli intelligence officers, that insiders made
nearly $16 million profit by short selling shares in American and United
Airlines, the two airlines that suffered hijacking, and the investment
firm of Morgan Stanley, which occupied 22 floors of the WTC.
- Apparently none of the suspicious transactions could
be traced to bin Laden because this news item quietly dropped from sight,
leaving many people wondering if it tracked back to American firms or intelligence
- According to web writer and former LA policeman Michael
C. Ruppert, these transactions were handled primarily by Deutsche Bank-A.
B. Brown, a firm which until 1998 was chaired by A. B. "Buzzy"
Krongard, who today is executive director of the CIA.
- Besides Krongard, other prominent Americans connected
to both the CIA and Wall Street power include Clark Clifford (who was a
key player in gaining legitimacy for the BCCI), John Foster and Allen Dulles
(Allen oversaw the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion and sat on the Warren Commission),
Bill Casey, David Doherty, George Herbert Walker Bush, John Deutch, Nora
Slatkin and Hank Greenburg.
- As detailed in Rule by Secrecy, the CIA historically
has been top heavy with members of the Wall Street elite who desire to
advance their globalist agenda. It also operates a number of front companies
which themselves deal in stocks and bonds. I am absolutely convinced that
the Central Intelligence Agency had complete and perfect foreknowledge
of the attacks, down to the date, time, place and location," Ruppert
told OnLine Journal on Oct. 12.
- There were other indications of foreknowledge. San Francisco
Mayor Willie Brown stated on that on Sept. 10 he was warned by his personal
"airport security" not to fly the next day., according to radio
- More ominous was a piece in the Sept. 28 edition of the
Washington Post stating that officials with the instant messaging firm
of Odigo in New York confirmed that two employees in Israel received text
messages warning of an attack on the WTC two hours before the planes crashed
into the buildings. The firm's vice president of sales and marketing, Alex
Diamandis said it was possible that the warning was sent to other Odigo
members, but they had not received any reports of such.
- Military forces had been on a heightened state of alert
for several days before the attack and several psychics claimed to have
had a premonition that something was afoot.
- Even the Russians got in on the act. Dr. Tatyana Koragina,
a senior research fellow at the Institute of Macroeconomic Researches which
is a part of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development, gained credibility
due to her July prediction that an unusual catastrophe would strike America
in late August ruining the economy.
- In a Pravda interview, she stated, "The US has been
chosen as the object of financial attack because the financial center of
the planet is located there. The effect will be maximal. The strike waves
of economic crisis will spread over the planet"
- Following the Sept. 11 attacks, Dr. Koragina was reinterviewed
and asserted the "powerful group" behind the attacks will make
new strikes. "When [Americans] understand after the upcoming, new
strikes, that their government can guarantee them nothing, they will panic
- causing a collapse of their financial system."
- Asked who was really behind this odious plan, she replied
it is not the 19 terrorists identified by the FBI but rather a larger group
seeking to reshape the world. She said this group of extremely powerful
private persons hold total assets of about $300 trillion and intend to
legitimize their power under a new global government.
- Some took Dr. Koragina's eerily correct predictions as
evidence that Russia itself may be behind some of the current events. It
is a fact that Russia has backed several state sponsors of terrorists,
including Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, North Korea and Cuba.
- ISRAELI FOREKNOWLEDGE?
- But let us not forget the indications that someone in
Israel had foreknowledge of the attacks. And there were questions concerning
the number of Israeli citizens killed in the attacks. The day after, the
Jerusalem Post claimed two Israelis died on the hijacked airplanes and
that 4,000 were missing at the WTC. A week later, a Beirut television station
reported that 4,000 Israeli employees of the WTC were absent the day of
the attack. This information spread across the Internet but was quickly
branded a hoax. On Sept. 19, the Washington Post reported about 113 Israelis
were missing at the WTC and the next day, President Bush noted more than
130 Israelis were victims. Finally, on Sept. 22, the New York Times stated
"There were, in fact, only three Israelis who had been confirmed as
dead: two on the planes and another who had been visiting the towers on
business and who was identified and buried."
- Of all the nations of the world, Israel probably profited
the most from the events of Sept. 11.
- A permanent American military force in the Middle East
is now assured, offering an umbrella of protection to that small nation
despite the anger engendered in Arab states. After Ariel Sharon's provocative
visit to the Muslim mosque in Jerusalem resulted in widespread violence
by Palestinians, world opinion began to shift away from uncritical support
of Israel. It has been reported that the Bush Administration was beginning
to seriously consider support for a separate Palestinian state.
- Israel's powerful and effective intelligence agency,
the Mossad, is not beyond suspicion, according to the US Army's School
of Advanced Military Studies. The Washington Times on Sept. 10, just 24
hours before the attacks, ran an article quoting officers of the school
as describing the Mossad as "Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability
to target US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act."
- It is generally known that the Mossad has penetrated
every Arab and Muslim organization and would have had little problem in
finding any number of fanatics to carry out a suicide mission in the belief
they were serving Allah.
