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 11, 2001.
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 fear.
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
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
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
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
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
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
Rule by Secrecy).
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,
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
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 forces.
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 of Stalingrad.
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 1990’s.
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
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,
Unocal withdrew from the pipeline consortium, citing the hazardous
political situation and the project languished.
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.
In 1998, Dick Cheney, now US
vice-president but then chief executive of a major oil services
company, remarked: "I cannot think of a time when we have had a
region emerge as suddenly to become as strategically significant as
the Caspian." But the oil and gas there is worthless until it is
moved. The only route which makes both political and economic sense
is through Afghanistan.
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
At a UN-sponsored meeting concerning Afghanistan in Berlin,
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
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. It brought 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 in Afghanistan.
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.
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 on Cuba.
Under consideration in "Operation Northwoods" were plans:
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
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 airliner.
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 dollars.
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.
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
fourth reportedly crashed in western Pennsylvania after passengers
attempted to fight the terrorists.
But a series of disturbing questions have arisen. Among them:
* 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
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?
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 were responsible?
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
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
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
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
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 aerial explosion?
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 airlines 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
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.

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

Osama bin Laden’s brother, Salem, to open a partnership with

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
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

million dollar profit. The stock dropped when the Iraqi invasion

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.
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

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 known 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
It has been confirmed by the senior Bush’s chief of staff that
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,
"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
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
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
"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
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
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 station KSFO.
More ominous was a piece in the Sept. 28 edition of the Washington
Post stating that officials with the instant messaging firm of
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 Koryagina, 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. Koryagina was re-interviewed and
asserted the "powerful group" behind the attacks will make new
"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. Koryagina’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.
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
Israeli employees of the WTC were absent the day of the attack. This
information spread across the Internet but was quickly branded a
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
"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
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.
Indeed, recent news reports contended that not all of the hijackers
knew their mission would end in death.
REMOTE CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT A REALITY
Thanks to newly revealed technology, it is now possible to theorize
that none of the hijackers intended to die.
Global Hawk is the name of the latest version of a high-altitude,
long-endurance unmanned air vehicle (UAV), in other words, a
unmanned drone plane that can take off, conduct missions such as
photographing battlefields and land by remote electronic control.
This Buck Rogers equipment made its first operational flight Oct. 7
when it was used for reconnaissance over Afghanistan in preparation
for US air and missile strikes against the Taliban regime.
But this remote-controlled plane, similar to a Boeing 737 commercial
airliner, was successfully tested earlier this year, first at
Edwards Air Force Base and later at Edinburgh Air Force Base in
Prior to leaving Australia, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister
for Defense Dr. Brendan Nelson said,
"Global Hawk will create
aviation history again during its return journey to become the first
unmanned aircraft to fly non-stop from Australia to the United
States west coast."
When news of Global Hawk was first released, there was speculation
that the UAV technology might be used to thwart airline hijackings.
Once a hijacking took place, the Global Hawk technology would be
triggered and the captured plane flown to a landing at a safe
location regardless of the actions of the flight crew or the
In fact, following the attacks, the New York Times on Sept. 28 in an
article on increasing air safety, mentioned,
probably far in the future, allowing air traffic controllers to land
distressed planes by remote control".
This made it seem such technology is not yet available, yet earlier
this year, a former chief of British Airways suggested that such
technology could be used to commandeer an aircraft from the ground
and controlled remotely in the event of a hijacking.
Needless to say, there are those today who question if Global Hawk’s
true first operational use might have been conducted on Sept. 11.
After all, as all experienced aviation and military persons well
know, if a technology such as Global Hawk is publicly revealed, it
most probably has been in secret use for several years.
regardless of how the planes with the terrorists were controlled, it
is clear that their managers had information, if not help, from
inside the government.
Early on, the Bush White House issued a statement stating that
credible evidence showed that the hijackers had access to the top
secret codes of Air Force One, in which the President fled from
Florida to Louisiana and on to Nebraska. This statement made the
President’s zig-zag journey of 9-11 more like that of a careful and
prudent commander than a fleeing coward.
White House officials later said this information was untrue,
leaving the public with the question of what else has the Bush
people told us that is untrue, or that the their first statements
were true, raising the possibility that there may have been inside
help in obtaining the codes.
It is certainly true that various agencies knew for some time that
suspected terrorists were operating in the United States.
As early as 1995, it was known within police and military circles
and reported in VFW and American Legion publications that some 5,000
former Iraqi prisoners of war had been allowed in this country by
the Clinton Administration beginning in 1993. Most had worked with
the CIA at one time or another and were allowed in this country to
avoid death at the hands of a vengeful Saddam Hussein.
Many of these men had been with the Iraqi Republican Guard which
blew up the Kuwaiti oil fields at the end of the Gulf War, so they
obviously were trained in explosives.
They were "resettled" in various US cities and where they formed
cells. These cities included New York City, Boston, Washington, D.
C., Miami, New Orleans, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco,
Seattle, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Kansas
City and more.
These men participated in fundraising activities for the HAMAS and
Hezballah terrorist chains. They have been connected to
Laden through a Cebu City connection in the Philippines, the
location that convicted bomber Terry Nichols visited with his
Philippine wife. At least 12 of these former POWs are believed to
have been involved in the Oklahoma City bombing.
Although this may seem a strange and unreported connection, there is
a wealth of information linking Iraqi operatives to Timothy McVeigh.
In fact the Oct. 29 edition of U.S. News & World Report revealed
that "top Defense officials" believe McVeigh was acting as an agent
for Iraq, an astounding development in light of the extent the
government continued to deny any conspiracy other that aid from
These same trained soldiers reportedly created a number of
clandestine laboratories to produce biological warfare germs,
including anthrax, bubonic plague, various hemorrhagic fevers and
other deadly combinations.
FBI MOVES SLOWLY -- AND IN THE WRONG DIRECTION
In 1996, The FBI finally was moved to action concerning the
biological threat. Ohio microbiologist Larry Wayne Harris had tried
to alert the public to the danger of anthrax being smuggled into the
United States by Muslim extremists but was demonized by the mass
media as a conspiracy buff. In 1998, Harris, along with Nevada
microbiologist William Leavitt, was arrested by the FBI in Las Vegas
for possessing anthrax cultures.
The mass media broadcast this news widely, repeating the
government’s charge that the men were testing the deadly toxins in
preparation for an attack on New York. These allegations were
quietly dropped only a few days later when it was found that the men
possessed a harmless veterinary anti-anthrax vaccine. They were
attempting to find their own antidote to anthrax, a dangerous
disease the government continued to dismiss in the mid-1990s. (US
News & World Report, March 2, 1998 and March 9.)
It is interesting that at that same time, several people were
warning that an anthrax vaccine ordered for all US military
personnel was actually going to be used to spread the disease and
provoke a United Nations takeover once enough US soldiers were
incapacitated. It was claimed that this plan would be set in motion
by an emergency blamed on foreigners which would hasten the use of
the vaccine. Several military persons were brought before a court
martial for refusing to take the vaccine.
And what of Osama bin Laden? What did he have to say about all this?
Don’t look to the corporate mass media to inform you as they have
all agreed not to broadcast anything that might detract from the
official government story, even though it is acknowledged that
Bush’s media denunciations of bin Laden have been more filled with
adjectives like "evil" and "evildoer" than specific evidence.
Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting
(FAR) noted that on Oct. 10,
network executives representing ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox and
involved in a conference call with National Security Adviser and
Council on Foreign Relations heavyweight Condoleeza Rice.
apparently agreed to limit how and what they broadcast regarding bin
Laden or his Al Qaeda group. Bush people even tried unsuccessfully
to have al Jazeera, called the "CNN of the Mideast," broadcasting
from Qatar tone down its coverage of bin Laden. They were more
successful with members of our Congress, when they threatened to cut
off intelligence reports if they spoke offhand to the media.
The next day, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer, already on the
record saying Americans "need to watch what they say," extended this
constraint by contacting major newspapers asking that they not print
full transcripts of bin Laden’s interviews.
According to a FAR news release,
"The point is not that bin Laden or
Al Qaeda deserve ’equal time’ on US news broadcasts, but that it is
troubling for government to shape or influence news content.
Withholding information from the public is hardly patriotic. When
the White House insists that it’s dangerous to report a news event
"in its entirety", alarm bells should go off for journalists and the
American public alike."
OSAMA BIN LADEN REPLIES
Here’s what bin Laden did say in an
interview on Sept. 28, according
to the Pakistani newspaper Ummat,
have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in
the United States. As a
Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of
these attacks, not do I consider the killing of innocent women,
children and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly
forbids causing harm to innocent women, children and other people.
Such a practice is forbidden even in the course of battle. It is the
United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women,
children and common people"
In this interview, apparently suppressed in the United States,
Laden unsurprisingly blamed the attacks on Israel, claiming,
that is going on in Palestine for the last 11 months is sufficient
to call the wrath of God upon the United States and Israel (and)
what had earlier been done to the innocent people of Iraq, Chechnya
(A full text of this interview may be found at
Bin Laden went on to state,
"we are not hostile to the United
States. We are against the [US Government] system which makes other
nations slaves to the United States or forces them to mortgage their
political and economic freedom."
One cannot, of course, take bin Laden at face value, but then the
same could be said for the US Government which has been caught in so
many lies and deceit in the past that it is surprising that anyone
pays any attention to official pronouncements.
EXAMINING US NEO-COLONIALISM, I.E. FOREIGN POLICY
What should be thoughtfully considered is the dismal record of
United States foreign policy since World War II. This policy, as
confirmed by the New York Times years ago, has been in the hands of
Council on Foreign Relations elite since at least 1939.
This elite and its associates includes former Presidents Bush and
Bill Clinton, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon, virtually
every CIA director as well as a considerable number of familiar past
and present government officials such as,
James A. Baker III
Frank C. Carlucci
This policy has been one of neo-colonialism, that is the subjugation
and control of other nations through military dictators or wealthy
families supported by, and often placed in power, by the US military
or intelligence services.
The results of this neo-colonial policy has been dismal at best
and catastrophic at worst. Never mind the historical aggression
displayed by American foreign policy in the Mexican War of 1848 and
the Spanish-American War of 1898. Consider this policy since World
In 1951, when Iran’s Prime Minister Mohammed Mossadegh
nationalized the oil industry in that Mideast nation, he was deposed
by a coup instigated by the CIA and the Shah came to power, assuming
complete control in 1963. Thousands of Iranians, perhaps millions
died during the repressive rule of the Shah and his SAVAK secret
police. The Shah was finally forced out in 1979 by the Ayatollah
Khomeini, who became the US’s latest foreign enemy despite the fact
that he had been on the CIA payroll while living in Paris.
was granted asylum in the United States.
In Guatemala in 1954, again the
CIA toppled the popularly elected
government of Jacobo Arbenz, which had nationalized United Fruit
property. Prominent American government officials such as former CIA
Director Walter Bedell Smith, then CIA Director Allen Dulles,
Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs John Moors Cabot and
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles were all closely connected to
United Fruit. An estimated 120,000 Guatemalan peasants died in the
resulting military dictatorships.
Fidel Castro, with covert aid from the
CIA, overthrew the military
dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista and instituted sweeping land,
industrial and educational reforms as well as nationalizing American
businesses. Swiftly labeled a communist, the CIA then organized
anti-Castro Cubans resulting in numerous attacks on Cuba and the
failed Bay of Pigs Invasion in 1961. The island nation has been the
object of US economic sanctions since that time.
More than 3,000 persons died in the wake of an invasion of the
Dominican Republic by US Marines in 1965. The troops ostensibly were
sent to prevent a communist takeover, although later it was admitted
that there had been no proof of such a takeover.
Also in 1965, the US began the bombing of North Vietnam after
President Johnson proclaimed the civil war there an "aggression" by
the north. Two years later, American troop strength in Vietnam had
grown to 380,000. US dead by the end of that Asian war totaled some
58,000 with casualties to the Vietnamese, both north and south,
running more into the millions.
In 1973, the elected government of Salvador Allende in Chile was
overthrown by a military coup aided by the CIA. Allende was killed
and some 30,000 persons died in subsequent violence and repression,
including some Americans.
In 1968, General Sukarno, the dictator of Indonesia, was
overthrown by the General Suharto, again with aid from the CIA. Suharto proved even more dictatorial and corrupt than his
predecessor. A reported 800,000 people died during his regime.
Another 250,000 persons died in 1975 during the brutal invasion of
East Timor by the Suharto regime aided by the US Government and
In 1979, the powerful Somoza family, which had ruled
since 1937, was finally overthrown and Daniel Ortega was elected
president. CIA-backed Contra insurgents operating from
fought a protracted war to oust the Ortega government in which an
estimated 30,000 people died. The ensuing struggle came to include
such shady dealing in arms and drugs that it created a scandal in
the United States called Iran-Contra, which involved selling arms to
Iran and using the profits to support the Contras.
US Marines landed in
Lebanon in 1982 in an attempt to preventing
further bloodshed between occupying Israeli troops and the Palestine
Liberation Organization. Thousands died in the resulting civil war,
including several hundred Palestinians massacred in refugee camps by
Christian forces. Despite the battleship shelling of Beirut,
American forces were withdrawn in 1984 after a series of bloody
attacks on them.
In 1983, US troops invaded the tiny Caribbean island nation of
Grenada after a leftist government was installed. The official
explanation was to rescue a handful of American students who
initially said they didn’t need rescuing.
For nearly 20 years, during the 1970s and 1980s, the US Government
gave aid and arms to the right wing government of the Republic of El
Salvador for use against it leftist enemies. By 1988, some 70,000
Salvadorans had died.
More than one million persons died in the 15-year battle in
between the Marxist government aided by Cuban troops and the
National Union for the Total Independence of Angola, supported by
South Africa and the US Government.
When Muammur al-Qaddafi tried to socialize the oil-rich North
African nation of Libya beginning with his takeover in 1969, he drew
the wrath of the US Government. In 1981, it was claimed that Qaddafi
had sent hit teams to the United States to assassinate President
Reagan and in 1986, following the withdrawal of U.S. oil companies
from Libya, an air attack was launched which missed Qaddafi but
killed several people including his infant daughter.
In 1987, an Iraqi missile attack on the US frigate Stark resulted
in 37 deaths. Shortly afterward, the Iraqi president apologized for
the incident. In 1988, a US Navy ship shot down an Iranian airliner
over the Persian Gulf resulting in 290 deaths. The Reagan
Administration simply called it a mistake.
Thousands of freedom seeking Chinese were killed in
Tiananmen Square in 1989 after hardliners conferred with former
President Richard Nixon on how to deal with the dissidents. Nixon,
of course, was the only US president to resign under threat of
About 8,000 Panamanians died over Christmas, 1989, when President
George H. W. Bush sent US troops to invade that Central American
nation to arrest his former business partner, Manuel Noriega. The
excuse was that Noriega was involved in the importation of drugs to
the United States. U.S. News & World Report noted that in 1990, the
amount of drugs moving through Panama had doubled.
Iraqi casualties, both military and civilian, totaled more than
300,000 during the short Persian Gulf War of 1991. It has been
estimated that more than one million Iraqis, including women and
children, have died as a result of the continued missile and air
attacks over the past decade as well as economic sanctions against
Also in 1991, the United States suspended assistance to

Eventually, US troops were deployed.

As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated during the
"My government is the world’s leading purveyor of violence."
He did not say "my country" or "my people," it is
the government, or
rather those who control it, that are responsible. Although we the
distracted and unaware citizens who claim to live in a democracy
must take our fair share of the blame.
Is there precedence in history for what is happening to America
today? So much so that there is not enough space to present it all.
Nero burned Rome, blamed it on his enemies and took dictatorial
But consider what happened just last century. On February 27, 1933,
the German Reichstag or Parliament was destroyed by fire. Hitler and
his Nazis blamed the destruction on communist terrorists. They even
caught one, a retarded Dutch youth named Marinus van der Lubbe who
carried a Communist Party card. After some time in custody, the
youth confessed to being the arsonist.
However, later investigation
found that one person could not have started the mammoth blaze and
that incendiaries had been carried into the building through a
tunnel which led to the offices of Hitler’s closest partner,
Less than a month later, on March 24, 1933, at Hitler’s urging, a
panicky German Parliament voted 441 to 94 to pass an "Enabling Act"
which was the starting point for Hitler’s dictatorship. As a result
of this act, Germans soon saw gun confiscation, national identity
cards, racial profiling, a national security chief (Heinrich Himmler)
and later, mass murders and incarcerations in concentration camps.
One of the western leaders who supported Hitler and his policies was
Prescott Bush, grandfather of President George W. Bush.
He must have
taken notice of Hitler’s method for gaining unwarranted power.
I read for the first time Göbbels'
hand-written entry about the Reichstag fire. As he described it, he
was at his home with Hitler on that evening of February 27, 1933,
when the phone rang at nine o'clock. It was the prankster "Putzi"
Hanfstängl, saying: "The Reichstag's on fire." Göbbels remembered
that he'd been had twice by Hanfstängl already that week, and he
thought this was another prank, so he just put the phone down.
Hanfstängl phoned again and said, "You'd better listen to what I'm
saying, The Reichstag's on fire." Göbbels realized this could be
serious after all, so he made a phone call to the police station at
the Brandenburg Gate, which confirmed that the Reichstag was on
fire. Thereupon he and Hitler jumped into a car and drove straight
to the Reichstag where they found their worst fears confirmed. This
is in the hand-written diary, it is obviously genuine, and it
confirms what we know from other sources.
Since the Reichstag fire, the Bush family and their associates in
Council on Foreign Relations,
Trilateral Commission and
Bilderbergers have often mimicked
Hitler’s tactics of creating a
problem, offering a draconian solution and advancing their agenda
through any resulting compromise.
The real enemy is whoever is behind the Sept. 11 terror attack.
bin Laden, so closely connected to the financial interests of
Bush family and the CIA, may be the mastermind or he may be a
convenient scapegoat, yet another provocation to stampeded Americans
into another war for oil.
We must thoughtfully consider where the real source of terror lies
- with one bearded fanatic in an impoverished Middle Eastern
country or with those who would profit while shredding the US
Constitution in the name of defending freedom.
