911 = JOA

"Investigators are wise to pursue the links to U.S. security firms and former CIA personnel involved in pre-9/11 protection functions. The FBI cannot or will not investigate the actual perpetrators of 9/11."   -Wayne Madsen, former NSA insider

What is a JOA? When one group assists another group for a common goal, they work together under a joint operating agreement. Competing newspapers often work together under a JOA, sharing the cost of printing. In the past, US fishing vessels often caught fish in US protected waters and delivered the catch to Russian vessels under a joint operating agreement. 

Nowadays many intelligent people wonder whether 911 was an inside job. They wonder whether the US government let it happen or helped make it happen. Logically, 911 was both allowed to happen and made to happen, under a joint operating agreement.


Top insiders from several intelligence organizations worked together towards a common goal months and possibly years before the attack occurred. Plausible denial allowed one Intel organization to deny involvement while covering for all the other groups involved. For example, the Mossad operatives caught redhanded on September 11, 2001 in Liberty State Park were detained and then released by the FBI. Although a simple criminal investigation and trial might have implicated them as accomplices (Evidence in the confiscated vans) and possibly conspirators, the FBI released them.

Former NSA insider, Wayne Madsen, said: "the FBI refuses to cooperate due to the orders coming from people like (Tom) Lantos, (John) McCain, FBI Director Robert Mueller, and others who do the bidding of the Russian-Israeli mob."

We know that FBI superiors worked in the interest of the 911 conspiracy. How can I prove this? Simple. The FBI special agents-God bless 'em---who tried to warn FBI headquarters of a terrorist plot prior to 911 were thwarted and subverted in the weeks and months before the attack. Who thwarted them? Top FBI terrorist officials like David Frasca and Marion Bowman. After 911 occurred, followed by the anthrax attacks (allowed to happen and made to happen), Bowman was promoted and given a decoration.

FBI special agent and whistleblower Coleen Rowley remarked: "Minnesota agents became so frustrated by roadblocks erected by terrorism supervisors in Washington that they began to joke that FBI headquarters was becoming an unwitting accomplice to Osama bin Laden's efforts to attack the United States."


Strange indeed that the FBI, during the late summer of 2001, underwent a change of directors. An acting-director served in the weeks preceding the "attacks." Coincidental? I think not. All part of the joint operating agreement. All part of the master plan.

Others in the joint operating agreement appear to be the CIA, Justice Department and White House. "After the September 11th 2001 Terrorist attacks, the Bush administration tried to ram the USA PATRIOT Act through Congress, that would have, if already had not, set up a police state. And we know for a fact that the PATRIOT Act had already been drafted and was sitting on Ashcroft's desk as of September 10th," said Dr Francis Boyle, law professor who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989.

Pre-knowledge of a crime, especially by the head of the Department of Justice, would indicate what? Complicity? Conspiracy? Coincidence?  High Treason?

Why didn't the watch dog bark, Sherlock Holmes wondered?  Because the dog recognized a friend who committed the crime. In other words, an inside job. If the CIA had acted prior to 911, the complete destruction of the WTC never would have occurred, a destruction that included CIA headquarters there (And the all-important SEC records in the same building, WTC-7). Do you actually believe that not a single rumor of a foreign attack on America reached CIA or Secret Service headquarters at the WTC-7? Can 19 flight school dropouts, headed by a former CIA operative living in a cave in Afghanistan, successfully destroy the CIA headquarters in New York City without any prior knowledge by this top spy organization? If so, the sorcerer's apprentice has exceeded the sorcerer by several light years. Because the sorcerer's apprentice, Osama bin Laden, remains free and the sorcerer remains powerless to catch him. Reasonable people might conclude 911 was an inside job. Especially when another CIA operative confessed that former CIA asset Osama bin Laden, was allowed to escape at Tora Bora and fled to Pakistan, another major player in the intelligence joint operating agreement.  

The difficult question that true believers dare not ask themselves is this: How could ALL the top US intelligence organizations have allowed 911 to happen?  Easy to explain if one admits 911 was not only allowed to happen but made to happen through a joint operating agreement.

Consider: Mossad-the best covert spy org in the world--likely did the dirty work right here in America, and planted the charges in the recently-purchased and highly-insured Silverstein buildings. Plausible denial would allow US intel orgs to deny any culpability.

"Terrorism, particularly 'false-flag' terror in which the blame for a terror attack is wrongly assigned to the enemy, is a strategy and tactic developed and perfected by the Zionists," wrote investigative journalist, Christopher Bollyn..

The Israeli celebrants caught at Liberty State Park, like other Israelis arrested that day by honest local cops in Manhattan with vans reeking of explosives, would indicate to most unbiased observers that Israel was involved somehow. Whether Mossad or Israeli operatives helped smuggle the 19 "hijackers" aboard at Logan and Newark airport, and then alerted fellow Israelis inside the WTC to avoid work that day, is open to debate. 

For some reason, the heads of NORAD preferred to look the other way. The heads of the National Security Agency preferred to look the other way. The Pentagon preferred to look the other way, as did the CIA, as did top officials of the FBI.  Which indicates 911 was a JOA. Groups, or individuals, working together for a common goal.

True believers of the 911 fraud always ask me: What proof do I have? The proof is in the signature of the event.  Not ONE US Intel group stepped forward to stop or slow the attack but assisted it at every step of the way. True believers, good and decent Americans for the most part, thus fail to acknowledge the overwhelming agenda by the US government, a government composed of liars, profiteers, conspirators and murderers.

Not to mention a US mainstream media as guilty of fraud and disinformation as the old Soviet state-sanctioned propaganda organs, Pravda and Tass.   Long ago, in programs such as Operation Mockingbird, the CIA covertly put major publishing, newspaper, and media outlets, as well as thousands of individual reporters under direct agency control, from where they have mostly remained.

Understandably no one in the US media dare call 911 an inside job, a joint operating agreement. How could they?

But ask any true believer, whether concerned citizen or media "watchdog" or government employee, for some simple explanations: Why did Dick Cheney, acting president on September 11, 2001, refuse to testify under oath before the Kean Commission, a toothless, government appointed inquiry that flatly stated they were NOT an investigation? What exactly did Dick Cheney have to fear? And why did George Bush stonewall any inquiry of 911 until long after the WTC site had been scraped clean?  And what did US Attorney General Ashcroft know that compelled him to avoid commercial flights in the days before 911? And why wasn't NORAD in the air over Washington DC? Why did NORAD fail to protect the US Capitol for the entire thirty minutes between the last WTC strike and the Pentagon strike?  Thirty minutes and not one airplane! Was it because any NORAD pilot would have recognized that the hijacked plane (missile as Rumsfeld said) that was about to strike the Pentagon wasn't Flight 77? For that matter, where was the Secretary of Defense during that entire time?  How many orders did he issue? What were Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld doing in those thirty minutes? Nothing it seems. Nothing to stop the "attack."

Perhaps most disturbing: Why wasn't anyone fired after 911? Indeed, even more indicative:  many of those involved in key positions received rewards. For allowing or permitting or enabling or conspiring, to kill 3,000 Americans. The ultimate question remains: WHO created this master crime? WHO planned 911? WHO remains securely behind the scenes pulling the strings? Certainly someone living in a penthouse rather than a primitive cave.

Finally, the Iraq War, a war based on lies, greed and genocide, is itself a JOA. The US "All voluntary" military, together with Mossad/ IDF advisors and MI6/ SAS Brit forces, is clearly a joint operating agreement. The key to the entire imperialist venture was the false flag operation, 911.

Probably the great majority of Americans who work in the offices of the Pentagon, FBI, CIA, NORAD and National Security Agency are good, honest and decent humans. I believe they are. But the facts of 911 do not lie: top government officials worked together under a joint operating agreement, then and now, to engineer a faked attack and begin a series of wars and massive spending.
