Summary Of A Few Indications
Of Prior 911 Knowledge

Expert: Russia Knew in Advance, Encouraged Citizens to Cash Out Dollars
Sept. 17, 2001 Russian press accounts and other activities by the Russian government this summer indicate that the Russian government knew in advance that something would happen to America, including a "financial attack" against the U.S.
During the past three months, Russian media and officials have encouraged citizens to cash out U.S. dollars pending an economic collapse there after an "attack."
Israeli Intelligence Agency warned CIA of attacks
9/17/01 Mossad officials traveled to Washington last month to warn the CIA and the FBI that a cell of up to 200 terrorists was planning a major operation, according to a report in the Sunday Telegraph here yesterday.
The paper said the Israeli officials specifically warned their counterparts in Washington that "large-scale terrorist attacks on highly visible targets on the American mainland were imminent." They offered no specific information about targets, but they did link the plot to Afghanistan-based terrorist Osama bin Laden, and they told the Americans there were "strong grounds" for suspecting Iraqi involvement.
Israeli Security Issued Urgent Warning to CIA of Large-scale Terror Attack
ISRAELI intelligence officials say that they warned their counterparts in the United States last month that large-scale terrorist attacks on highly visible targets on the American mainland were imminent.
The attacks on the World Trade Centre's twin towers and the Pentagon were humiliating blows to the intelligence services, which failed to foresee them, and to the defence forces of the most powerful nation in the world, which failed to deflect them.
The Telegraph has learnt that two senior experts with Mossad, the Israeli military intelligence service, were sent to Washington in August to alert the CIA and FBI to the existence of a cell of as many of 200 terrorists said to be preparing a big operation.
Echelon Gave Authorities Warning Of Attacks By Ned Stafford Sept. 13, 2001
FRANKFURT, GERMANY - U.S. and Israeli intelligence agencies received warning signals at least three months ago that Middle Eastern terrorists were planning to hijack commercial aircraft to use as weapons to attack important symbols of American and Israeli culture, according to a story in Germany's daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ).
The FAZ, quoting unnamed German intelligence sources, said that the Echelon spy network was being used to collect information about the terrorist threats, and that U.K. intelligence services apparently also had advance warning. The FAZ, one of Germany's most respected dailies, said that even as far back as six months ago western and near-east press services were receiving information that such attacks were being planned.
Some Got Warning - Don't Go Downtown on Sept. 11 Sept. 12, 2001
Federal investigators have received evidence that some Middle Easterners in the New York area were warned ahead of time to stay out of lower Manhattan the morning of Sept. 11, the Daily News has learned.
The FBI was able to confirm several such warnings occurred but has been unable to discover the source of the warnings.
Calendar Showed Plane Crashing Near Manhattan
NewsMax Wires Thursday, Sept. 27, 2001 A calendar which was printed in Egypt and for the month of September shows a crashing passenger plane with Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop - and which was printed in May, a full three months before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on America
Germans Tie Terror Groups to Pre-Attack Stock Trading By William Drozdiak Washington Post
BRUSSELS - The president of Germany's central bank said Saturday there was mounting evidence that people connected to the attacks in New York and Washington sought to profit from the tragedy by engaging in "terrorism insider trading" on European stock and commodity markets.
Tom Kenny, a member of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) "National Urban Search and Rescue Team" during an interview on national TV with CBS News anchor Dan Rather.
According to Kenny, FEMA sent the Urban Search and Rescue Team to New York City the night before the attacks occurred! Mr. Kennedy tells Dan Rather, "We're currently one of the first teams that was deployed to support the City of New York in this disaster. We arrived on late Monday night [September 10] and went right into action on Tuesday morning" [September 11]
In August 2001, Drs Garth Nicholoson and Nancy Nicholson, two of the worldíís most distinguished Mycoplasma researchers on Gulf War Syndrome, informed Pentagon officials that they had ""confirmed intelligence that on September 11, 2001, a terrorist strike against the Pentagon would be made.""
They cited their sources as including ""individuals in key intelligence positions and one high-level African diplomat."" Their information was passed to the Inspector General of the U.S. Army Medical Corps and the National Security Council.
""Unfortunately it was ignored,"" says Dr Garth Nicholson.
Congressman: FBI Ignored Repeated Warnings NY Times Dec. 24, 2001
The FBI ignored several specific and sometimes frantic warnings of a Minnesota flight instructor who told the bureau that an Arab man could be planning to use a 747 jumbo jet as a flying "bomb."
The flight instructor notified the FBI about the unusual behavior of Zacarias Moussaoui, now under federal indictment for his membership in the Al-Qaeda network and his alleged role in the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
The flight instructor at the Pan Am International Flight Academy near Minneapolis became suspicious when Moussaoui said he wanted to learn how to fly large jet aircraft, but insisted he did not need to know how to take off or land.
In October, reports first surfaced about the flight instructor's tip-off to the bureau.
But the New York Times reported this weekend that the instructor's information was much more specific and serious.
Rep. James L. Oberstar, D-Minn., and other officials were briefed by the flight school, and Oberstar's revelations paint a picture of the FBI's negligence.
Oberstar said the instructor made a very blunt warning to the FBI. Oberstar quoted the instructor as telling the FBI: "Do you realize that a 747 loaded with fuel can be used as a bomb?"
Suppressed Details of Criminal Insider Trading Lead Directly Into CIA's Highest Ranks 10-9-01
(FTW) - Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prized unclaimed -- the firm used to place the "put options" on United Airlines stock was, until 1998, managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director position at the Central Intelligence Agency. Until 1997 A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. A. B. Brown was acquired by Banker's Trust in 1997. Krongard then became, as part of the merger, Vice Chairman of Banker's Trust -AB Brown, one of 20 major U.S. banks named by Senator Carl levin this year as being connected to money laundering. (Trading is monitored real-time to detect any unusual "insider trading". Short sales on the airline was 1200 times more than usual.)
The Failure Of Government By Joseph Farah
The FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies also knew that two of the hijackers were in the country, according to the Los Angeles Times. They were on a terrorist watch list. But the airlines were not notified.
In addition, the FBI and CIA were well aware of bin Laden's plans to hijack U.S. airliners. The plot was uncovered six years earlier in the Philippines when police found detailed information on a laptop computer belonging to a bin Laden operative, Ramsi Youssef. The plan called for hijacking U.S. airliners and crashing them into U.S. buildings including the World Trade Center and Pentagon.
In case the FBI and CIA had just forgotten about Project Bojinka, which I sincerely doubt, they should have received a reminder with the 1999 publication of Yossef Bodansky's book, "Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America," in which he spells it out. The original plan called for the hijacking of 11 airliners at once.
In other words, had the FBI and CIA simply added two plus two, the threat of hijackings would have been obvious. But there was even more.
The FBI had several terrorists under surveillance, according to the Oct. 1 issue of Newsweek. They intercepted communications just prior to Sept. 11 that suggested something very big was about to happen.
Still, there were more clues. Zacarias Moussaoui was arrested after flight trainers tipped off the feds that he wanted to learn how to fly a 747 but wasn't interested in takeoffs or landings. Zacarias was traveling on a French passport. When contacted, the French government reported that he was a suspected terrorist.
There were even more reasons to be on high alert - and specifically to be thinking about the threat of dramatic hijackings.
The question then is: Were they ignored? And, if so, why? But there is evidence that the threat wasn't ignored - at least not entirely.
A day after the attack, the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Mayor Willie Brown was called eight hours before the hijackings and warned by his security staff not to travel.
On Sept. 27, the London Times reported that Salman Rushdie got a similar warning about avoiding U.S. and Canadian airliners. That warning, said Rushdie, came from no less authority than the Federal Aviation Administration.
Now, you're probably wondering why Willie Brown and Salman Rushdie are more important to the U.S. government than you and me and Barbara Olson. I'm wondering the same thing.
These selective warnings - and I have no doubt there were many more we have not yet heard about - suggest strongly that the FBI, CIA and other federal agencies had the information, knew something big was up, something that involved terrorist attacks on airliners, but failed to disclose the information to the airlines and the flying public in general.
I think heads should roll at the FBI and CIA. I think there ought to be an investigation into what the FAA knew and when it knew it. I think, once again, the federal government has neglected its main responsibility under the Constitution - protecting the American people from attack.
CIA Agent 'Met Bin Laden In July' Oct. 31, 2001
Le Figaro today claimed that a CIA agent met Osama bin Laden in a Gulf hospital as recently as last July and received "precise information" about an imminent attack on the US.
According to the French daily, the agent met Bin Laden while he was being treated at the American Hospital in Dubai for a kidney infection. The agent was subsequently recalled to Washington.
A French secret service report on 7 September warned of possible attacks, and that the order to act would come from Afghanistan. Le Figaro says very precise information on targets for attack was communicated to the CIA.
Schippers: Government Prior Knowledge Of Pending Attack
Transcript of Interview of David Schippers, Attorney for FBI Agents, By Alex Jones 10-10-01
AJ: Now later you got it from FBI agents in Chicago and Minnesota that there was going to an attack on lower Manhattan.
DS: Yes - and that's what started me calling. I started calling out there. First of all, I tried to see if I could get a Congressman to go to bat for me and at least bring these people out there and listen to them. I sent them information and nobody cared. It was always, "We'll get back to you", "we'll get back to you", "we'll get back to you." Then I reached out and tried to get to the Attorney General, when finally we got an attorney general in there that I would be willing to talk to. And, again, I used people who were personal friends of John Ashcroft to try to get him. One of them called me back and said, "Alright, I have talked to him. He will call you tomorrow morning." This was like a month before the bombing. The next morning I got a call. It wasn't from Ashcroft. It was from somebody in the Justice Dept.
AJ: One of his handlers.
DS: Yes, and I started telling him the situation and he said, "You know we don't start our investigations at the top." I said I would like to talk to the Attorney General because this is vital. He said, "We don't start our investigations at the top. Let me look into this and I will get back to you." As I sit here today, I have never heard from him.
AJ: Again, David Schippers, you are big in Washington, you were the top lawyer that got Clinton impeached, you are highly respected, you know the Senators, the Congressmen. You're calling up. You've got these FBI agents and others feeding you this information. They're being pulled off the cases, they're angry. That's even been in the news now, from Minnesota and Florida and Illinois. They know what's going to happen. The Sudanese in '96 and '98 tried to arrest Bin Laden for Clinton, tried to give us the names of Al Qaeda, Clinton wouldn't take it.
DS: Didn't want any part of it.
AJ: We're talking to David Schippers. We're discussing FBI agents across the country having prior knowledge of the attacks, trying to get these guys arrested or even to get a warrant, knowing they were associates of Bin Laden, others being trained at the Pensacola Naval Air Station, Clinton not wanting the names of Al Queda when they had the chance, there is so much evidence of prior knowledge. How did this happen with the Bush administration, when you are trying to get to Ashcroft and telling them that there is a plan to attack lower Manhattan very soon and what was the intel you were getting from these agents?
DS: Well, a lot of this wasn't coming from the agents. When the bomb hit (WTC attack) and everybody said we have to find the money (trail) and stop the money. The only place the money was actually identified and stopped was in Chicago. There was actually a lawsuit, a case filed here in Chicago, in which money that had been earmarked for Hamas, to be used for terrorism, was grabbed by the United States government - and seized and forfeited, and that was here in Chicago.
AJ: But that agent had to go through a lot of grief to get that done.
DS: An agent actually filed the affidavit. I'm not talking about anything that is confidential. This agent here in Chicago filed the affidavit where he laid out the whole way that the money moves, the way that it is handled, how it comes out of the middle east into Chicago area and into the United States, how it is covered, how the operatives are covered, how the money is transferred back and where it's kept while its here. And that affidavit ran like 30 pages - laying it out. And he had to go through hell on earth in Washington, he had to fight like a tiger - everybody in his own bureau and in the Dept. of Justice was against him - and still is.
AJ: Now the FBI agents in Minnesota knew about this and had the evidence but they couldn't even get a wiretap or a warrant to search these guys.
DS: Exactly.
AJ: We're talking about some of the actual hijackers.
DS: Exactly. And this woman who was talking to me, she had other contacts, who were in Naval Intelligence and other areas, and she was reporting that there was one of these terrorists who was involved in the bombing in Oklahoma City - was working at the Boston airport. A friend of mine who happens to be an agent had information that there were Hamas operatives working in baggage and areas at O'Hare Airport with free access to any part of the airport. But no one would listen. They just said it's not true, it can't happen that way. I'll tell you something. I don't know if it was because Clinton and his boys didn't want the United States to realize that Flight 800 was a terrorist attack and that Oklahoma City was a terrorist attack because they didn't want to admit that the intelligence of the United States was totally destroyed.
