subject Was Sept.11 a Cover-up of a Financial Fraud and how does that relate 
to Corzine and David Rockefeller?
mailed-by gmail.com

hide details Dec 4 (2 days ago)


While mulling over Corzine, your pension, the so called "Great Vampire Squid" 
Goldman Sachs and the "spreading of democracy" in the world (that evidently 
is, instead, spreading a Caliphate -Sharia law), we should connect the dots. 
We should re-visit that speech by David Rockefeller at the National Press 
Club. The National Press Club seemed to fully understand and agree with what 
David was referring to:

"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine 
and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and 
respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have 
been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been 
subjected to the lights of publicity during those years.But, the world is now 
more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The 
supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is 
surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past 
centuries." - David Rockefeller

Which of our elected officials, who have sworn an oath to uphold our 
Constitution, are involved in 'supranational' efforts to "march" us to a NWO?


How many 1st responders died responding to 911, how many continue to suffer 
illnesses related to 911? What happened on 911?

WHY?

Will something like this happen again?

"Federal Reserve had to cover-up the clearance of $240 Billion in covert 
securities", this was before 911

Was Larry Silverstein ever asked what he knew and when did he know it? Am I 
wrong? I don't remember him called to testify before the 911 Commission or 
congress.

Who 'happened' to be in the 'death corridor' and what were they investigating 
at the time?

Must watch, you will have no doubt that this needs to be re-opened:
9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out, Full-length
http://youtu.be/lw-jzCfa4eQ

...and this:

"The answers to the questions surrounding the cause of the WTC attack will be 
found in events during the presidency of George H.W. Bush and earlier. 
Insight into the activities of that period are cloaked by the Executive Order 
of George H.W. Bush’s son, President George W. Bush, who on November 1, 
2001 issued Executive Order 13233."

"In 1992, George H.W. Bush served on the Advisory Board of Barrick Gold. The 
Barrick operation would create billions of dollars of paper gold by creating 
‘gold derivatives’. A major distribution channel for the sale of 
Barrick’s gold futures would be Enron."

"The records on this investigation were kept in the FBI office on the 23rd 
floor of the North Tower which was destroyed by bomb blasts shortly before 
the Tower collapsed."

"The Wall Street Journal reported:

"There is every reason to believe activities in the Bank of New York in 
the aftermath of September 11th are worthy of suspicion..... At one point 
during the week after September 11, the Bank of New York publicly reported to 
be overdue on $100 billion in payments.”

It suggests that certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have 
been in collusion..."


Was September 11
a Cover-up
of a Financial Fraud?
Spanish
German
French

Russian



(The following is an attempt to present in a compact form the claims made by 
Dick Eastman, Tom Flocco, V.K. Durham, Karl Schwarz and put together in an 
the article by E.P. Heidner dated 28th June 2008 to the effect that the 
September 11th attacks were intended to cover-up the clearing of the 1991 
issuance of $240 billion in covert securities to fund an economic war against 
the Soviet Union during which "unknown" western investors bought up much of 
the Soviet industry. A crime presented by official sources as a "terrorist 
attack" and used as an excuse to attack Iraq.)
September 11

Initially the official designation of "terrorist attacks" made it difficult 
to discern a pattern. However if the destruction of the World Trade Centre, a 
segment of the Pentagon, four commercial aircraft and the loss of 2,993 lives 
is not considered as a "terrorist attack" but rather as a crime with specific 
objectives, there is a compelling logic to the pattern of destruction, not 
only of the buildings but of specific offices within each building.

If the attack on the Office of Naval Intelligence in the Pentagon was not 
random it is reasonable to assume that the planes that hit the World Trade 
Centre, and the bombs reported by various witnesses to have been set off 
inside the buildings 1, 6, 7, the basement of the Towers, the vault in the 
basement of the World Trade Centre were also deliberately targeted. Why? What 
was it that linked these targets? The destruction of the contents of the 
basement of the World Trade Centre - less than a billion in gold, but 
hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities? In addition why 
were specific brokers from the major government security brokerages in the 
Twin Towers eliminated? To create chaos in the government securities market? 
To create a situation wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could 
be electronically “cleared” without anyone asking questions? Which 
happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its 
“emergency powers” that afternoon.

There were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor 
Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and Garbon Inter Capital. On the morning of September 
11, Flight 11 hit the North Tower at 8:46 right below the floors on which 
Cantor Fitzgerald was situated. Cantor Fitzgerald as the largest securities 
dealer in the US was probably the primary target. Shortly thereafter a 
massive explosion went off under the FBI offices in the North Tower on the 
23rd floor, Garbon Inter Capital on the 25th floor, and in the basement of 
Tower 1. The explosion caused the 22nd through 25th floors above to collapse 
into an inferno. Fires were reported on the 22nd floor at 8:47. Shortly, 
thereafter, at 9:03, Flight 175 hit the South Tower right below the floors on 
which Euro Brokers was situated. In all three cases, the explosive, fiery 
destruction consumed the offices in the several floors above. At 9:37 Flight 
77 hit the Pentagon, targeting one of the few offices that had been moved in 
the newly remodeled section of the Pentagon: the Office of Naval 
Intelligence, which had been investigating the financial transactions linked 
to the securities being managed by those security dealers in the World Trade 
Center that were targeted. 41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towers came from 
two companies that managed U.S. government securities: Cantor Fitzgerald and 
Eurobrokers. 31% of the 125 fatalities in the Pentagon were from the Naval 
Command Center that housed the Office of Naval Intelligence. 39 of 40 Office 
of Naval Intelligence employees died. In the vaults beneath the World Trade 
Center Towers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed.

Building 7 was evacuated somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30. Fires and 
explosions spontaneously began at multiple locations inside the building 
prior to the collapse of either Tower. This observation contradicts the 
official explanation that the fire started when objects from the collapsing 
towers caused the fires to ignite. The Building ultimately was destroyed in 
what many unofficial observers now believe was a controlled demolition. 
Building Seven housed several agencies critical to investigation of financial 
crimes.

In the midst of all this, Building 6 was destroyed by explosions from within. 
Building 6 was home to the U.S. Customs agency and the El Dorado Task force, 
which was responsible for coordinating all major money-laundering 
investigations in the U.S. In the immediate aftermath of September 11, these 
groups would be redirected to investigate terrorist financing.

The Office of Naval Intelligence in the Pentagon, which sustained a direct 
hit from an airliner that day, was without a doubt, a target pinpointed for 
destruction. The attacking aircraft went through intricate manoeuvres in 
order to hit the west side of the Pentagon, The flight path approach shows 
that the attacking aircraft passed almost directly over the White House, 
bypassing what should be considered a primary target for a "terrorist attack" 
instead of a supposedly empty section of the Pentagon. The planes that hit 
the South Tower also manoeuvered in the last moments to hit their exact 
target.

On the same day, (September 11) the Securities and Exchange Commission 
declared a national emergency and for the first time in U.S. history invoked 
its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and eased 
regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the 
next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert 
government securities to be cleared upon maturity (September 12th) without 
the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership.

While most media reports defer to the U.S. government contention that Osama 
Bin Laden was behind these attacks, foreign media provided reports suggesting 
that the “real power” behind Al Qaeda was unknown. As shall be seen, the 
financial power behind the attack is the same power that created these 
securities, and the same power as that which founded Al Qaeda.
The Background

In order to understand why the ongoing Federal investigations into the crimes 
funded by those securities needed to be ended or disrupted by destroying 
evidence in Buildings 6, 7 and 1, it is necessary to understand how the $240 
billion in covert, and possibly illegal government funding, could have been 
created in September 1991 and also to know the background of 50 years of 
history of key financial organizations in the United States, where U.S. 
Intelligence became a key source of their off-balance sheet accounts.

The covert securities used to accomplish the original national security 
objective had ended up in the vaults of the brokers in the World Trade 
Centre, were destroyed on September 11, 2001, the day before they came due 
for settlement and clearing. Either a key group of senior National Security 
officials, who had participated in the victory of the economic cold war in 
1991, considered the deaths and destruction as ‘collateral" damage to hide 
the existence of the covert activities or the destruction constituted a 
cover-up of continued lawlessness by a fraternity or brotherhood of 
businessmen and criminals that has remained in the shadows ever since.
The Origins of the World Trade Centre Attack

Most historians track the history of September 11th to 1998 when Osama Bin 
Laden declared a fatwa or jihad against the U.S., and the terrorist 
“Hamburg Group” led by Mohammed Atta reportedly “offered” it’s 
services to Al Qaeda. However, the history which defines the motives for the 
September 11 attacks goes much further back. The answers to the questions 
surrounding the cause of the WTC attack will be found in events during the 
presidency of George H.W. Bush and earlier. Insight into the activities of 
that period are cloaked by the Executive Order of George H.W. Bush’s son, 
President George W. Bush, who on November 1, 2001 issued Executive Order 
13233. As a result public records which might have shed light on the 
activities of 1990 and 1991 remain shielded from public access. Consequently 
the reconstruction of events from the late 1980s and early 1990s is based on 
news reports, books and articles.

What the public record suggests is that with the beginning of the first Bush 
Presidency in 1989, George H.W. Bush initiated a programme of covert economic 
warfare to bring about the collapse of the Soviet Union. The name of this 
programme appears to be Project Hammer - a multi-billion dollar covert 
operation, whose investments remain shielded.

There is reason to believe that the plan was initially formulated by 
Reagan’s CIA Director, William Casey. Many of the programme operatives were 
probably engaged through official CIA and National Security channels. 
However, as a result of the experience gained by the Bush cabinet and its 
private sector counterparts during the secretive Iran-Contra and Ferdinand 
Marcos gold operations, the execution of that programme would be accompanied 
by a new assumption that the use of covert and illegal funding for a policy 
not approved by Congress would remain acceptable.
The Source of the Funds

Numerous sources have documented that at the end of World War II, the 
treasury of the Japanese Empire was discovered in the Philippines by Edward 
Lansdale a member of the staff of General Charles Willoughby, who was General 
MacArthur’s chief of Intelligence. Lansdale and Severino Garcia Diaz Santa 
Romana tortured Major Kojima Kashii, General Yamashita Tomoyuki’s driver, 
until he revealed the sites of the gold. Then known as the "Golden Lily 
Treasure", this mass of wealth had been accumulated by the Japanese over 
fifty years from the pillaging of Southeast Asia and China by its army and 
had been deposited in the Philippines due to the U.S. submarine blockade of 
Japan. Reports vary, but documents in the public domain suggest the recovered 
treasure was in excess of 280,000 metric tonnes of gold.

Lansdale briefed Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy about the 
findings, and a U.S. Cabinet-level decision was made to confiscate the gold 
and cover-up its discovery. The gold would be added to the Black Eagle Trust 
fund which took its name from the Nazi Black Eagle stamped on the gold bars 
confiscated from the Reich and was the original source of funding for the 
trust. Over the years, the significance of the Nazi gold would pale in 
comparison to the confiscated Japanese treasure. As the fund grew, it was 
distributed in private accounts across the globe in over 100 banks, and 
administered by General Earle Cocke.

Lansdale and Santa Romana were made responsible for recovery of the treasure. 
They fabricated a “Communist Revolution” by the Hukbalahak rebels in 
order to confiscate the land where much of the gold was buried, and proceeded 
to mine it.




The Yamashita gold would become the cornerstone of the Black Eagle Fund, from 
which many covert operations of the U.S. intelligence would be funded. Under 
international law the gold should have been either returned to the countries 
from which it was stolen (as was done with the Nazi gold), or should have 
been incorporated into the U.S. Treasury. The U.S. Government’s continued 
efforts to stifle news on this matter provides prima facie evidence that the 
confiscation of this gold was illegal.

The men responsible for initiating and executing the confiscation of Nazi and 
Japanese treasury gold represent the most senior Intelligence officers in the 
U.S. and Britain at the end of World War II, and the Cabinet of the President 
of the United States. The financial institutions represented by these 
individuals would become the major financial banks in the world, along with 
the Swiss-German banks where they hid their gold.

Lansdale’s operation in the Philippines gave birth to most of the common 
features of modern covert operations for the U.S.Intelligence and initiated a 
bond between the US intelligence organizations and the Israeli intelligence. 
He also set precedents for the Intelligence community to retain the services 
of organized crime on U.S. soil and to use drug running as a way of financing 
activities,
The covert operations funded by the Black Eagle Trust in the 1960s and 1970s 
became visible stains on the global image of the U.S. despite all efforts to 
keep them under cover. In an effort to clean house, President Jimmy Carter 
would order the retirement of over 800 covert operatives. Many of these 
operatives would move into private consulting and security firms and be 
employed as subcontractors for covert operations. Thus began a loose 
association of private operatives that would be referred to as “the 
Enterprise” in the years to come. George H.W. Bush, having been CIA 
Director, had many acquaintances in this group, and would work with them to 
restore their influence and control over U.S. foreign policy and the foreign 
investment opportunities it created for their benefit.

Meantime Ferdinand Marcos, the pro-U.S. dictator of the Philippines, 
continued to discover even more of the buried treasure. and had started to 
sell it on the market during the 1970s with the assistance of Adnan 
Khashoggi. US Intelligence operations had been siphoning off the gold for 
three decades. However in 1986 Vice President George Bush took over the gold 
from Marcos and the gold was removed to a series of banks, notably Citibank, 
Chase Manhattan, Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation, UBS and Banker’s 
Trust, and held in a depository in Kloten Switzerland. What happened to the 
Marcos gold after it was confiscated by U.S. agents in 1986 has never been 
reported, but throughout the early 1990s, the world gold market would be 
befuddled by the mysterious appearance of thousands of tonnes of gold which 
appeared to suppress the price of gold.

In South east Asia operations were financed through Nugan Hand Bank in 
Australia which would be one of the many banks used for transferring the 
Marcos gold from the Philippines into covert operations. Frank Nugan’s 
family ran the primary supply shipping operation between the U.S. Navy base 
in the Philippines and Australia. Frank Nugan's business partner, Peter 
Abeles, and Henry Keswick, together with Canadian businessman Peter Munk, 
would link with Adnan Kashoggi, Sheikh Kamal and Edgar Bronfmann in a series 
of operations which ultimately would evolve into Barrick Gold.

In 1992, George H.W. Bush served on the Advisory Board of Barrick Gold. The 
Barrick operation would create billions of dollars of paper gold by creating 
‘gold derivatives’. A major distribution channel for the sale of 
Barrick’s gold futures would be Enron. Enron would also become the vehicle 
by which oil and gas contracts from the former Soviet Union (vehicles for 
Soviet money-laundering) were processed. Barrick, which has no mining 
operations in Europe, used two refineries in Switzerland: MKS Finance S.A. 
and Argor-Heraeus S.A. – both on the Italian border near Milan, a few hours 
away from the gold depository in Zurich. The question that Barrick and other 
banks needed to avoid answering is: what gold was Barrick refining in 
Switzerland, as they have no mines in that region?

Barrick would become a quiet gold producing partner for a number of major 
banks, and its activities became subject to an FBI investigation into 
gold-price-fixing. The records on this investigation were kept in the FBI 
office on the 23rd floor of the North Tower which was destroyed by bomb 
blasts shortly before the Tower collapsed. The ultimate destination of the 
"Golden Lily Treasure", and the source of the ‘loaned’ gold that flooded 
the market for 10 years has never been officially explained.

The records of many of those transactions disappeared when Enron collapsed 
and the trading operation and all its records were taken over by UBS, another 
major recipient of Marcos gold. The FBI was reportedly conducting an 
investigation into those transactions, and the investigation files were kept 
on the 23rd floor of the North Tower of the WTC. A review of the personal 
accounts of September 11 now suggests that office was deliberately targeted 
with explosives prior to the collapse of the WTC.

Another key player in the Marcos gold was Banker’s Trust, which was taken 
over by Alex Brown & Sons, after Banker’s Trust floundered financially on 
its Russian loans in the mid 1990s. These Russian loans were facilitated by 
Enron, starting in August of 1993, and very possibly were part of the Project 
Hammer takeover of Soviet industry.

Amongst those brought into the picture by the involvement of Alex Brown was 
J. Carter Beese who was Executive Director of the CIA at the time of 
September 11. He was appointed by George H.W. Bush to the board of directors 
of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation in 1992. Since 1992, OPIC has 
provided more than $4.5 billion in finance and insurance to more than 140 
projects in Russia. He was also Chairman of Riggs Bank and also President of 
Riggs Capital Partners. Riggs controlled the famous Riggs-Valmet consultants 
who set up the international financial apparatus for the Russian oligarchs 
and rogue KGB allowing them to steal the Soviet treasury and destroy the 
Russian economy. Carter Beese’s death was reported as a suicide in 2006.

It appears that in September 1991, George H.W. Bush and Alan Greenspan did 
indeed finance $240 billion in bonds in a buy-out of the Soviet Union as part 
of a broader programme to attack the economy of the Soviet Union. In addition 
President George H.W. Bush had initiated a number of related covert 
operations to take over certain sectors of the Soviet economy,

The covert business dealings with the Iranians and Israelis which originated 
with Kashoggi and Kimche in July 1980 in Hamburg under the October Surprise 
arrangement, would provide an opening to the Soviet KGB that would allow the 
U.S. to fund a coup against Gorbachev in 1991. It would grow into a larger 
covert operation over the years, and be overshadowed by the larger 
Iran-Contra operation. Members of Bush’s covert intelligence cadre sold 
weapons to Iran, an avowed enemy of the U.S., and illegally used the profits 
to continue funding anti-Communist rebels, the Contras, in Nicaragua.

The entire Iran-Contra operation almost fell apart in 1986 and became public 
when the Nicaraguan government shot down a U.S. plane carrying weapons to the 
Contra rebels However the Iran-Contra team continued to violate the law even 
while being investigated by Congress.

Emboldened by the lack of consequences for subverting the U.S. constitution 
and breaking international law during the Iran-Contra scandal, the Bush 
administration group known as “the Vulcans” planned a bigger drive to 
crush Soviet Russia.

The programme also seems to have lined the pockets of the individuals that 
executed this policy, at US taxpayer expense. This was done to the tune of 
the $240 billion dollars in covert and allegedly illegal bonds, which appear 
to have been replaced with Treasury notes backed by U.S. taxpayers in the 
aftermath of September 11.
The Vulcan’s Covert Economic War on the Soviet Union

In 1988, Riggs Bank, under the direction of Jonathan Bush and J Carter Beese, 
would purchase controlling interest in a Swiss company named Valmet. In early 
1989, the new subsidiary of Riggs called Riggs-Valmet would initiate contact 
with a group of KGB officers and their front-men to start setting up an 
international network for moving money out of the former Soviet block 
countries.

In the first phase of the economic attack on the Soviet Union, George Bush 
authorized Leo Wanta and others to destabilize the ruble and facilitate the 
theft of the Soviet/Russian treasury. This would result in draining the 
Russian treasury of between 2,000 to 3,000 tonnes of gold bullion, ($35 
billion at the time). This step would prevent a monetary defence of the ruble 
and thus destabilize the currency. The gold was ‘stolen’ in March of 
1991, facilitated by Leo Wanta and signed off by Boris Yeltsin’s right hand 
man. The majority of the leaked reports from the CIA and FBI suggest the 
theft of the Russian treasury was a KGB and Communist party operation, but 
what those reports omitted was the extensive involvement of Boris Yeltsin, 
the U.S. CIA and the U.S. banking industry.

In November 1989 George H.W. Bush appears to have arranged for Alton G. Keel 
Jr, a minor player in the Iran-Contra scandal to go to work at Riggs Bank, 
which would become the controlling owner of a small Swiss bank operation 
known as Valmet. The Riggs-Valmet operation, would become the 
‘consultants’ to the World Bank and to several KGB front operations run 
by future Russian oligarchs Khordokovsky, Konanykhine, Berezovsky and 
Abromovich. These soon-to-be Russian oligarchs had been set-up as front men 
by KGB Generals Aleksey (Alexei) Kondaurov; and Fillipp Bobkov, who 
previously reported to Victor Cherbrikov, who worked with Robert Maxwell, a 
British financial mogul, an Israeli secret service agent, and a 
representative of U.S. intelligence interests, who had been introduced to 
George Bush in 1976 by Senator Tower for the sole purpose of using Maxwell as 
an intermediary between Bush and the Soviet Intelligence. Maxwell assisted 
Cherbrikov in selling military weaponry to Iran and the Nicaraguan Contras 
during the course of the Iran Contra deals, and made hundreds of millions of 
dollars available to Cherbrikov’s Russian banks. These two would bring a 
previously unknown politician and construction foreman named Boris Yeltsin 
from the hinterlands of Russia to the forefront of Russian politics through 
providing 50% of Yeltsin’s campaign funding.

In the second phase, there were two major operations: the largest was 
coordinated by Alan Greenspan, Oliver North, and implemented by Leo Wanta. 
George Soros and a group of Bush appointees who began to destabilize the 
ruble. They are accused of fronting $240 billion in covert securities to 
support the various aspects of this plan.These bonds were created (in part or 
in whole) from a secretive Durham Trust, managed by ex-OSS/CIA officer, 
Colonel Russell Hermann. This war chest had been created with the Marcos 
gold.

Shortly before the attempted coup of 1991, Maxwell met Kruchkov on 
Maxwell’s private yacht. Shortly afterwards, Maxwell died mysteriously on 
his yacht while Senator Tower died in a plane crash under suspicious 
circumstances in April of 1991.

In the meantime, Riggs Bank was quickly solidifying banking relations with 
two of the old Iran-Contra scandal participants: Swiss bankers Bruce 
Rappaport, and Alfred Hartmann. Through this group George Soros opened a 
second front assault on the ruble. It is at this stage of the operation that 
three more groups would be brought into the plan by Rappaport and Hartmann: 
The Russian Mafiya, the Israeli Mossad, and the Rothschild family interests 
represented by Jacob Rothschild.

Soros and Rappaport would ensure that the Rothschild financial interests 
would be the silent backers for a number of the undisclosed deals. The 
Rothschild interests would also be seen on the board of directors of Barrick 
Gold.

In the fourth phase of the secret war, the Enterprise worked on several 
fronts to take over key energy industries. On the Caspian front of this 
economic war, James Giffen was sent to Kazakhstan to work with President 
Nazarbayev in various legal and illegal efforts to gain control of what was 
estimated to be the world’s largest untapped oil reserves - Kazak oil in 
the Caspian. The illegal flow of money from the various oil companies would 
reach a number of banks. These same oil interests would engage March Rich and 
the Israeli Eisenberg Group, owned by one of the Mossad’s key operatives, 
Shaul Eisenberg, to move the oil. (The Eisenberg Group would at some point 
own almost 50% of Zim Shipping, which mysteriously and inexplicably moved out 
of the World Trade Center a few weeks before the September 11 attacks.)

Like the other events linked with Project Hammer, the coup was all about the 
money. The coup began the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the beginning 
of the reign of Boris Yeltsin and his ‘family’ of Russian Mafiya 
Oligarchs, and President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan. In the final 
phase, a series of operatives assigned by President George H.W. Bush would 
begin the takeover of prized Russian and CIS industrial assets in oil, metals 
and defence. This was done by financing and managing the money-laundering for 
the Russian oligarchs through the Bank of New York, AEB and Riggs Bank.

A closer look at other activities leading up to these phases makes it clear 
that is was a U.S. orchestrated intelligence effort from the beginning. The 
economic war involved Gerald Corrigan of the NY Federal Reserve Bank, George 
Soros, an international currency speculator who was responsible for crashing 
the British pound a few years earlier, former Ambassador to Germany R. Mark 
Palmer, and Ronald Lauder-financier and heir to the Estee Lauder estate. 
Palmer and Lauder would lead a group of American investors in an Operation 
called the Central European Development Corporation, and combine forces with 
George Soros and the NM Rothschild Continuation Trust. This group ending up 
controlling Gazprom, the Russian natural gas giant, while the Riggs group 
ended up controlling Yukos, the oil giant. Ownership for both remains largely 
‘hidden’ today, while its front men endure the hardships of the Russian 
wrath by spending time in prison.

Meanwhile, across the Caspian Sea, Bush had assigned a wide array of former 
Iran-Contra operatives to take a role in Azerbaijan. Initially, he sent in 
the covert operatives Richard Armitage and Richard Secord who worked with 
their old colleague from the Mossad, David Kimche, and their old arms running 
colleagues Adnan Kashoggi and Farhad Azima to hire, transport, and train 
several thousand Al Qaeda mercenaries to fight on behalf of the Azeri freedom 
fighters! Osama Bin Laden was reported to have been part of this mercenary 
force.
The September 11th Cover-up of the Black Eagle Trust and Project Hammer

Ten years later in 2001, these programmes had finally come back to haunt the 
U.S. policy makers. Most, if not all of these programmes appear to have 
stepped outside of the boundaries of the law. As a result, investigative 
agencies from Britain, Switzerland, Russia, Kazakhstan and the Philippines 
were putting pressure on Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice to open 
up the accounts in the banks used to finance these covert activities. 
Pressure was being put on the Swiss banking cartel to open its bullion 
records to public scrutiny. Full disclosure by these banks during an 
investigation would have resulted in a major exposure of U.S. Government 
complicity in some of the greatest financial frauds of the 1980s and early 
1990s as well as 50 years of gold bullion theft by numerous U.S. and British 
government agencies. Moreover, investigation into these accounts would 
disclose a National Security secret known as the Black Eagle fund, and 
virtually every covert operation since World War II. Bringing an end to these 
investigations and preventing this disclosure was the sole objective for the 
destruction of the WTC and Pentagon.

These investigative and legal pressures began to accumulate in 1997, and in 
February 1998, Osama Bin Laden declared his fatwa, and Atta started planning 
the September 11 attacks.

With the bonds out in the market, they had sat for ten years, like a ticking 
time bomb. At some point, they had to be settled - or cashed in, on September 
12, 2001. The two firms in the U.S. most likely to be handling them would be 
Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers – the two largest government securities 
firms in the U.S. The federal agency mostly involved in investigating those 
transactions was the Office of Naval Intelligence. On September 11 those same 
three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the 
Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took near direct hits.

What happened inside the buildings of the World Trade on September 11 is 
difficult, but not impossible to discern. The government has put a seal on 
the testimony gathered by the investigating 911 Commission, and instructed 
government employees to not speak on the matter or suffer severe penalties, 
but there are a number of personal testimonies posted on the internet as to 
what happened in those buildings that day. Careful reconstruction from those 
testimonies indicates the deliberate destruction of evidence not only by a 
targeted assault on the buildings, but also by targeted fires and explosions. 
In the event that either the hijacking failed, or the buildings were not 
brought down, the evidence would be destroyed by fires.

Even more revealing would be the actions of the Federal Reserve Bank and the 
Securities and Exchange Commission on that day, and in the immediate 
aftermath. As one of many coincidences on September 11, the Federal Reserve 
Bank was operating its information system from its remote back-up site rather 
than it’s downtown headquarters. The SEC and Federal Reserve system 
remained unfazed by the attack on September 11. All of their systems 
continued to operate. The two major security trading firms had their trade 
data backed up on remote systems. Nevertheless, the Commission for the first 
time invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) 
and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions 
temporarily.

On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted “Rule 15c3-3 -Customer 
Protection--Reserves and Custody of Securities,” which set trading rules 
for the certain processes. Simply GSCC was allowed to substitute securities 
for the physical securities destroyed during the attack.

Subsequent to that ruling, the GSCC issued another memo expanding blind 
broker settlements. A “blind broker” is a mechanism for inter-dealer 
transactions that maintains the anonymity of both parties to the trade. The 
broker serves as the agent to the principals' transactions.

Thus the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment 
totally void of controls and reporting – where it could substitute valid, 
new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to 
record where the bad securities came from, or where the new securities went 
– all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been 
eliminated.

This act alone, however was inadequate to resolve the problem, because the 
Federal Reserve did not have enough “takers” of the new 10 year notes. 
Rather than simply having to match buy and sell orders, which was the essence 
of resolving the “fail” problem, it appears the Fed was doing more than 
just matching and balancing – it was pushing new notes on the market with a 
special auction.

If the Federal Reserve had to cover-up the clearance of $240 Billion in 
covert securities, they could not let the volume of capital shrink by that 
much in the time of a monetary crisis. They would have had to push excess 
liquidity into the market, and then phase it out for a soft landing, which is 
exactly what appears to have happened. In about two months, the money supply 
was back to where it was prior to 9/11.

It was the rapid rotation of the securities settlement fails in the aftermath 
of September 11th that appears to have allowed the Bank of New York and the 
Federal Reserve to engage in a securities refinancing that resulted in the 
American taxpayer refinancing the $240 billion originally used for the Great 
Ruble Scam.

The reports published by the Federal Reserve argue that the Federal 
Reserve’s actions increasing the monetary supply by over $300 billion were 
justified to overcome operational difficulties in the financial sector.

What appears to be the case is that the Federal Reserve imbalances reported 
on three consecutive days in the aftermath were largely concentrated at the 
Bank of New York, which is reported to represent over 90% of the imbalance, 
suggesting the Bank had been the recipient of massive fund transfers, and 
unable to send out transfers.This supposedly was due to major communication 
and system failures.In fact, none of the Bank of New York's systems failed or 
went non-operational.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

"There is every reason to believe activities in the Bank of New York in 
the aftermath of September 11th are worthy of suspicion..... At one point 
during the week after September 11, the Bank of New York publicly reported to 
be overdue on $100 billion in payments.”

It suggests that certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have 
been in collusion with key unknown figures at the Bank of New York to create 
a situation where $240 billion in off balance sheet securities created in 
1991 as part of an official covert operation to overthrow the Soviet Union, 
could be cleared without publicly acknowledging their existence.These 
securities, originally managed by Cantor Fitzgerald, were cleared and settled 
in the aftermath of September 11th through the Bank of New York. The $100 
billion account balance bubble reported by the Wall Street Journal as being 
experienced by the Bank of New York was the tip of a three-day operation, 
when these securities were moved from off-balance-sheet to the balance sheet.

The above gives an idea of the intricate activities both to perpetrate and 
then to cover the crime, which was then used under its "terrorist attack" 
label as an excuse for the attack on Iraq.

(The above answers the question "Why 9/11?". For how it was done.

Why did the US attack itself and destroy the world Trade Centers? The
fleecing of America:
http://truthaddictsanon.blogspot.com/2006/03/167-billion-in-gold-removed-from-world.html

The gold was taken before the WTC were destroyed. The building
destruction was only the cover up. Those that lost their lives were
casualties of a crime instigated by the Bush Admin.

In every crime there is a motive. The motive here was 166 BILLION 800
million dollars plus another 2.5 billion in insurance money that Mr.
Silverstein collected from insurance on the WTC buildings themselves.

  • Cryptome A report in the Washington Post asserted that the Central Intelligence Agency had placed agents on the staff of UNSCOM, the United Nations unit that had been assigned to inspect Iraqi weapons production facilities under UN Security Council resolutions. Claims that the weapons inspectors were being used by the CIA had been circulating for months. Indeed, Saddam Hussein had created a major crisis when he decided not to permit American members of the team into Iraq because they were, according to him, CIA agents. Two things made the Post story interesting. First, it provided some hints as to how the U.S. had used UNSCOM remote monitoring to intercept Iraqi communications. Second, the Post story appears to have originated within official Washington circles and has not been met with a spate of denials.
  • The New York Times broke a story late in the week that claimed that Chinese intelligence had penetrated Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and that it had, over many years, extracted technical information on the construction of miniaturized nuclear warheads. Such miniaturization is critical for the construction of warheads with multiple, independently targeted, re-entry vehicles (MIRVs), which the United States and Soviet Union had built, but which China had not been able to construct until they had allegedly stolen plans from Los Alamos. Apparently, the theft had been discovered in 1995, but according to these reports, the Clinton Administration had deliberately ignored the warnings because creating a public crisis would interfere with the Administration's plans for engagement with China. The Administration did not deny the espionage claim, but did state that they had tightened security.
  • The New York Post published a story claiming that a book written by Gordon Thomas would claim that Israel's Mossad had tapped Monica Lewinsky's phone (along with another, unnamed intelligence agency) and had recorded her having phone sex with the President. The story went on to claim that Mossad had used the tapes to blackmail Clinton. The President then called off a hunt for a suspected Israeli mole in the White House because of Israeli threats that they would release the tapes. In a later interview, Thomas backed off the blackmail claims, stating that Danny Yatom, head of Mossad at the time, had ruled out blackmail. He continued to maintain that Mossad had obtained the tapes.
  • Last weekend, the Washington Post broke a story stating that the United States had temporarily halted the sale of aircraft to Greece. The reason was that evidence had come to light that Greece, a U.S. ally and member of NATO, had provided the Russians with extremely sensitive codes that would enable someone to jam NATO aircraft. In exchange, according to the reports, Russia gave Greece a system known as SPN-2, which would interfere with the targeting capabilities of NATO aircraft. Presumably, Greece would have used this system against Turkey. Once the reports surfaced, Washington asserted that weapons sales to Greece would resume, because the reports were inaccurate and the transaction had not taken place.

 

 

Email-ID 1313332 Date 2011-09-06 18:14:04 From mike@yahoo.com To responses@stratfor.com

In a few days it will be the tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001. How 
well has the US government’s official account of the event held up over the 
decade?

Not very well. The chairman, vice chairman, and senior legal counsel of the 
9/11 Commission wrote books partially disassociating themselves from the 
commission’s report. They said that the Bush administration put obstacles 
in their path, that information was withheld from them, that President Bush 
agreed to testify only if he was chaperoned by Vice President Cheney and 
neither were put under oath, that Pentagon and FAA officials lied to the 
commission and that the commission considered referring the false testimony 
for investigation for obstruction of justice.

In their book, the chairman and vice chairman, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, 
wrote that the 9/11 Commission was “set up to fail.” Senior counsel John 
Farmer, Jr., wrote that the US government made “a decision not to tell the 
truth about what happened,” and that the NORAD “tapes told a radically 
different story from what had been told to us and the public.” Kean said, 
“We to this day don’t know why NORAD told us what they told us, it was 
just so far from the truth.”

Most of the questions from the 9/11 families were not answered. Important 
witnesses were not called. The commission only heard from those who supported 
the government’s account. The commission was a controlled political 
operation, not an investigation of events and evidence. Its membership 
consisted of former politicians. No knowledgeable experts were appointed to 
the commission.

One member of the 9/11 Commission, former Senator Max Cleland, responded to 
the constraints placed on the commission by the White House: “If this 
decision stands, I, as a member of the commission, cannot look any American 
in the eye, especially family members of victims, and say the commission had 
full access. This investigation is now compromised.” Cleland resigned 
rather than have his integrity compromised.

To be clear, neither Cleland nor members of the commission suggested that 
9/11 was an inside job to advance a war agenda. Nevertheless, neither 
Congress nor the media wondered, at least not out loud, why President Bush 
was unwilling to appear before the commission under oath or without Cheney, 
why Pentagon and FAA officials lied to the commission or, if the officials 
did not lie, why the commission believed they lied, or why the White House 
resisted for so long any kind of commission being formed, even one under its 
control.

One would think that if a handful of Arabs managed to outwit not merely the 
CIA and FBI but all 16 US intelligence agencies, all intelligence agencies of 
our allies including Mossad, the National Security Council, the State 
Department, NORAD, airport security four times on one morning, air traffic 
control, etc., the President, Congress, and the media would be demanding to 
know how such an improbable event could occur. Instead, the White House put 
up a wall of resistance to finding out, and Congress and the media showed 
little interest.

During the decade that has passed, numerous 9/11 Truth organizations have 
formed.
There are Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Firefighters for 9/11 
Truth, Pilots for 9/11 Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth, Remember Building 
7.org, and a New York group which includes 9/11 families. These groups call 
for a real investigation.


David Ray Griffen has written 10 carefully researched books documenting 
problems in the government’s account. Scientists have pointed out that the 
government has no explanation for the molten steel. NIST has been forced to 
admit that WTC 7 was in free fall for part of its descent, and a scientific 
team led by a professor of nano-chemistry at the University of Copenhagen has 
reported finding nano-thermite in the dust from the buildings.

Larry Silverstein, who had the lease on the World Trade Center buildings, 
said in a PBS broadcast that the decision was made “to pull” Building 7 
late in the afternoon of 9/11. Chief fire marshals have said that no forensic 
investigation was made of the buildings’ destruction and that the absence 
of investigation was a violation of law.

Some efforts have been made to explain away some of the evidence that is 
contrary to the official account, but most of the contrary evidence is simply 
ignored. The fact remains that the skepticism of a large number of 
knowledgeable experts has had no effect on the government’s position other 
than a member of the Obama administration suggesting that the government 
infiltrate the 9/11 truth organizations in order to discredit them.

The practice has been to brand experts not convinced by the government’s 
case “conspiracy theorists.” But of course the government’s own theory 
is a conspiracy theory, an even less likely one once a person realizes its 
full implication of intelligence and operational failures. The implied 
failures are extraordinarily large; yet,
no one was ever held accountable.

Moreover, what do 1,500 architects and engineers have to gain from being 
ridiculed as conspiracy theorists? They certainly will never receive another 
government contract, and many surely lost business as a result of their 
“anti-American” stance. Their competitors must have made hay out of their 
“unpatriotic doubts.” Indeed, my reward for reporting on how matters 
stand a decade after the event will be mail telling me that as I hate America 
so much I should move to Cuba.

Scientists have even less incentive to express any doubts, which probably 
explains why there are not 1,500 Physicists for 9/11 Truth. Few physicists 
have careers independent of government grants or contracts. It was a high 
school physics teacher who forced NIST to abandon its account of Building 
7’s demise. Physicist Stephen Jones, who first reported finding evidence of 
explosives, had his tenure bought out by BYU, which no doubt found itself 
under government pressure.









We can explain away contrary evidence as coincidences and mistakes and 
conclude that only the government got it all correct, the same government 
that got everything else wrong.

In fact, the government has not explained anything. The NIST report is merely 
a simulation of what might have caused the towers to fail if NIST’s 
assumptions programed into the computer model are correct. But NIST supplies 
no evidence that its assumptions are correct.

Building 7 was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report, and many 
Americans are still unaware that three buildings came down on 9/11.

Let me be clear about my point. I am not saying that some black op group in 
the neoconservative Bush administration blew up the buildings in order to 
advance the neoconservative agenda of war in the Middle East. If there is 
evidence of a coverup, it could be the government covering up its 
incompetence and not its complicity in the event. Even if there were definite 
proof of government complicity, it is uncertain that Americans could accept 
it. Architects, engineers, and scientists live in a fact-based community, but 
for most people facts are no match for emotions.

My point is how uninquisitive the executive branch including the security 
agencies, Congress, the media, and much of the population are about the 
defining event of our time.

There is no doubt that 9/11 is the determinant event. It has led to a decade 
of ever expanding wars, to the shredding of the Constitution, and to a police 
state. On August 22 Justin Raimondo reported that he and his website, 
Antiwar.com, are being monitored by the FBI’s Electronic Communication 
Analysis Unit to determine if Antiwar.com is “a threat to National 
Security” working “on behalf of a foreign power.”

Francis A. Boyle, an internationally known professor and attorney of 
international law, has reported that when he refused a joint FBI-CIA request 
to violate the attorney/client privilege and become an informant on his 
Arab-American clients, he was placed on the US government’s terrorist watch 
list.

Boyle has been critical of the US government’s approach to the Muslim 
world, but Raimondo has never raised, nor permitted any contributor to raise, 
any suspicion about US government complicity in 9/11. Raimondo merely opposes 
war, and that is enough for the FBI to conclude that he needs watching as a 
possible threat to national security.

The US government’s account of 9/11 is the foundation of the open-ended 
wars that are exhausting America’s resources and destroying its reputation, 
and it is the foundation of the domestic police state that ultimately will 
shut down all opposition to the wars. Americans are bound to the story of the 
9/11 Muslim terrorist attack, because it is what justifies the slaughter of 
civilian populations in several Muslim countries, and it justifies a domestic 
police state as the only means of securing safety from terrorists, who 
already have morphed into “domestic extremists” such as 
environmentalists, animal rights groups, and antiwar activists.

Today Americans are unsafe, not because of terrorists and domestic 
extremists, but because they have lost their civil liberties and have no 
protection from unaccountable government power. One would think that how this 
came about would be worthy of public debate and congressional hearings.


Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was appointed by President Reagan Assistant Secretary 
of the U.S. Treasury and confirmed by the US Senate. He was Associate Editor 
and columnist with the Wall Street Journal, and he served on the personal 
staffs of Representative Jack Kemp and Senator Orrin Hatch. He was staff 
associate of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, staff associate 
of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress, and Chief Economist, Republican 
Staff, House Budget Committee. He wrote the Kemp-Roth tax rate reduction 
bill, and was a leader in the supply-side revolution. He was professor of 
economics in six universities, and is the author of numerous books and 
scholarly contributions. He has testified before committees of Congress on 30 
occasions.

[Analytical & Intelligence Comments] 9/11

our allies including Mossad, the National Security Council, the State 
Department, NORAD, airport security four times on one morning, air traffic 
control, etc., the President, Congress, and the media would be demanding to 
know how such an improbable event could occur. Instead, the White House put 
up a wall of resistance to finding out, and Congress and the media showed 
little interest.

During the decade that has passed, numerous 9/11 Truth organizations have 
formed.
There are Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Firefighters for 9/11 
Truth, Pilots for 9/11 Truth, Scholars for 9/11 Truth, Remember Building 
7.org, and a New York group which includes 9/11 families. These groups call 
for a real investigation.


David Ray Griffen has written 10 carefully researched books documenting 
problems in the government’s account. Scientists have pointed out that the 
government has no explanation for the molten steel. NIST has been forced to 
admit that WTC 7 was in free fall for part of its descent, and a scientific 
team led by a professor of nano-chemistry at the University of Copenhagen has 
reported finding nano-thermite in the dust from the buildings.

Larry Silverstein, who had the lease on the World Trade Center buildings, 
said in a PBS broadcast that the decision was made “to pull” Building 7 
late in the afternoon of 9/11. Chief fire marshals have said that no forensic 
investigation was made of the buildings’ destruction and that the absence 
of investigation was a violation of law.

Some efforts have been made to explain away some of the evidence that is 
contrary to the official account, but most of the contrary evidence is simply 
ignored. The fact remains that the skepticism of a large number of 
knowledgeable experts has had no effect on the government’s position other 
than a member of the Obama administration suggesting that the government 
infiltrate the 9/11 truth organizations in order to discredit them.





The practice has been to brand experts not convinced by the government’s 
case “conspiracy theorists.” But of course the government’s own theory 
is a conspiracy theory, an even less likely one once a person realizes its 
full implication of intelligence and operational failures. The implied 
failures are extraordinarily large; yet,
no one was ever held accountable.

Moreover, what do 1,500 architects and engineers have to gain from being 
ridiculed as conspiracy theorists? They certainly will never receive another 
government contract, and many surely lost business as a result of their 
“anti-American” stance. Their competitors must have made hay out of their 
“unpatriotic doubts.” Indeed, my reward for reporting on how matters 
stand a decade after the event will be mail telling me that as I hate America 
so much I should move to Cuba.

Scientists have even less incentive to express any doubts, which probably 
explains why there are not 1,500 Physicists for 9/11 Truth. Few physicists 
have careers independent of government grants or contracts. It was a high 
school physics teacher who forced NIST to abandon its account of Building 
7’s demise. Physicist Stephen Jones, who first reported finding evidence of 
explosives, had his tenure bought out by BYU, which no doubt found itself 
under government pressure.

We can explain away contrary evidence as coincidences and mistakes and 
conclude that only the government got it all correct, the same government 
that got everything else wrong.

In fact, the government has not explained anything. The NIST report is merely 
a simulation of what might have caused the towers to fail if NIST’s 
assumptions programed into the computer model are correct. But NIST supplies 
no evidence that its assumptions are correct.

Building 7 was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report, and many 
Americans are still unaware that three buildings came down on 9/11.

Let me be clear about my point. I am not saying that some black op group in 
the neoconservative Bush administration blew up the buildings in order to 
advance the neoconservative agenda of war in the Middle East. If there is 
evidence of a coverup, it could be the government covering up its 
incompetence and not its complicity in the event. Even if there were definite 
proof of government complicity, it is uncertain that Americans could accept 
it. Architects, engineers, and scientists live in a fact-based community, but 
for most people facts are no match for emotions.

My point is how uninquisitive the executive branch including the security 
agencies, Congress, the media, and much of the population are about the 
defining event of our time.

There is no doubt that 9/11 is the determinant event. It has led to a decade 
of ever expanding wars, to the shredding of the Constitution, and to a police 
state. On August 22 Justin Raimondo reported that he and his website, 
Antiwar.com, are being monitored by the FBI’s Electronic Communication 
Analysis Unit to determine if Antiwar.com is “a threat to National 
Security” working “on behalf of a foreign power.”

Francis A. Boyle, an internationally known professor and attorney of 
international law, has reported that when he refused a joint FBI-CIA request 
to violate the attorney/client privilege and become an informant on his 
Arab-American clients, he was placed on the US government’s terrorist watch 
list.

Boyle has been critical of the US government’s approach to the Muslim 
world, but Raimondo has never raised, nor permitted any contributor to raise, 
any suspicion about US government complicity in 9/11. Raimondo merely opposes 
war, and that is enough for the FBI to conclude that he needs watching as a 
possible threat to national security.

The US government’s account of 9/11 is the foundation of the open-ended 
wars that are exhausting America’s resources and destroying its reputation, 
and it is the foundation of the domestic police state that ultimately will 
shut down all opposition to the wars. Americans are bound to the story of the 
9/11 Muslim terrorist attack, because it is what justifies the slaughter of 
civilian populations in several Muslim countries, and it justifies a domestic 
police state as the only means of securing safety from terrorists, who 
already have morphed into “domestic extremists” such as 
environmentalists, animal rights groups, and antiwar activists.

Today Americans are unsafe, not because of terrorists and domestic 
extremists, but because they have lost their civil liberties and have no 
protection from unaccountable government power. One would think that how this 
came about would be worthy of public debate and congressional hearings.


Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was appointed by President Reagan Assistant Secretary 
of the U.S. Treasury and confirmed by the US Senate. He was Associate Editor 
and columnist with the Wall Street Journal, and he served on the personal 
staffs of Representative Jack Kemp and Senator Orrin Hatch. He was staff 
associate of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, staff associate 
of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress, and Chief Economist, Republican 
Staff, House Budget Committee. He wrote the Kemp-Roth tax rate reduction 
bill, and was a leader in the supply-side revolution. He was professor of 
economics in six universities, and is the author of numerous books and 
scholarly contributions. He has testified before committees of Congress on 30 
occasions.

For anyone unaware, Whitley Strieber is a famous American writer.
Some of his novels have been made into feature films you may have seen in
prior years.
His following article is about the THIRD World Trade Center building
that later in the afternoon of 9/11, also collapsed straight down into its
"footprint" (just as the first two WTC buildings collapsed straight down
early that morning).
Incredibly, the Bush appointed 9/11 Investigation Commission totally
ignored the collapse of Building 7 - as if it never happened!)

THE 911 SCRIPT AND THE AGE OF TERROR
28-Feb-2007

I must admit that I have been deeply shocked by a story that appeared
today on my website, to the effect that the BBC reported the collapse of
WTC Building 7 23 minutes before it actually took place. Previously, the
BBC claimed that it had lost all of its 9/11 coverage, but this video has
now surfaced. I watched it myself, and sat there with my blood literally
running cold as I saw their reporter saying that Building 7 had collapsed
while it was still visible behind her, perfectly intact.

Now, why wasn't this just a simple mistake? CNN was reporting rumors that
Building 7 might be about to collapse an hour before it happened.
But the BBC reporter is clearly seen reading from a teleprompter.
Obviously, she was reading something written on it, and not making up what
would have then seemed to be a wild tale. In other words, she was reading
a script, and that script had been put up on her teleprompter early. Not
only that, she was sitting in front of a live image of the still-intact
Building 7.

Somebody wrote that script and did so while Building 7 was still standing.
How could they know that it would collapse, even if it was unstable, even
if there was a fire in the cellars?

No, the author of the script did not think the building had collapsed. He
knew that it would, and the statement was read early as a miscue.

If the BBC had not lost the video of that entire day, it would be easier
to believe that this was some sort of a mistake. But the idea that an
organization like the BBC, which prides itself on the record it keeps,
would lose an entire day of some of the most historic footage it has ever
shot is just very difficult to believe. It seems more likely that there
was something on that footage that they wanted to bury.

As, indeed, there was.

I have long since abandoned the US media as a lost cause. Thank God we
have the internet, because the American press are just a bunch of whores,
frankly. I spent 45 minutes yesterday with CNN Headline News today,
looking for news of Iran. 31 of those minutes were spent on Anna Nicole
Smith, and the rest was fluff.
Pravda did better during the height of the Soviet Union. At least it
didn't insult the intelligence of its readers, but only bored them with
its obvious lies. The American media goes it one better, by ignoring the
real news and running the silly stuff. And the papers that should be doing
better, such as the New York Times, have been singing the "no conspiracy
here" song since the days of the Kennedy assassination. Because of what
appears to be an almost surrealistic belief that people cannot do bad
things in concert, they missed Watergate. And they are missing 9/11 as
well. They all are, and, in the end, they will be abandoned by the public
because their silence and refusal to investigate are, in effect, lies
spoken without words on behalf of what is coming to seem a devastating and
widespread conspiracy against the lives of thousands of people, against
western civilization and against human freedom at the deepest level.
At present, virtually every street in Britain is watched by video, and
there is a bill on its way into parliament that will ban public
photography. Can you imagine, not being able to take a picture outdoors?
What madness is this, what evil insanity? But it's real, and it doesn't
end in Britain. Last October, without debate and in the dead of the night,
the president was given the power by language buried in the budget bill to
use the military as a police force within the United States, and to
nationalize the National Guard without consulting governors. In other
words, the Posse Cometatus Act of 1878 and the Insurrection Act of 1807
were usurped without a single word of debate and without the least whisper
from the American press.
To its credit, the New York Times did pick up on this story recently,
reporting the event on February 19, many months after it happened. But why
wait? These two acts are cornerstones of American freedom, but they have
gone the way of habeas corpus, sacrificed to what now appears to be a
self-generated war on terror, the purpose of which could not be more
clear: it is not to protect us, it is to take away our freedom and turn
this country into a dictatorship, and its little sisters the United
Kingdom and Australia into the bargain.




And the scale of the thing is terrifying. If the BBC was reading a script,
as it must have been, then they were all reading scripts, and not one
reporter has come forward, not one editor, and there is not a breath of
suggestion in the 9/11 Commission report that any such thing might have
been happening.

And yet, one cannot forget that there was substantial trading in puts on
the stock of insurance companies and airlines prior to 9/11, and that some
of this trading was traced to individuals who had been associated with the
CIA, as Jim Marrs reports in the Terror Conspiracy.
One also cannot forget that Condoleezza Rice testified before the 9/11
Commission that the National Security Council was blindsided by the
attack, even as the 11 memos warning of it that the FAA sent to her while
she was its chairman were classified until after the last presidential
election.

How long can this go on? How much more can we stand? I find it utterly
fantastic that conservatives are not outraged about the usurpation of
Posse Cometatus and the Insurrection Act, and the attack on habeas corpus,
not to mention the wholesale use of torture and atrocity as a matter of
national policy.

The Bush presidency is a burnt-out rump, it would seem, reduced to this
odd recent practice of sending its officials into harmis way in the
apparent hope that any misfortune befalling them will gain it some
sympathy, even as the president prepares for the future by buying a large
estate in Paraguay. (However, he might have done a little more research
about that country before he bought, given that the Colorado Party, which
has been in power since it was set up by Nazi sympathizers and German
immigrants in 1947, is now facing a serious threat from Msgr. Fernando
Lugo MEndez, a populist bishop who is likely to win the next general
election.)

And then there is the terrifying prospect that another 9/11 will take
place, but this time one so terrible that we will all desperately cleave
to authority in the hope of preserving our lives, no matter who we think
might be responsible. Anything less than a nuclear attack on one or more
American cities would drive Bush from office, because it would reveal his
entire anti-terrorism apparatus for the gimcrack sham that it is.

And when I say sham, I mean sham. Right now, they are just getting around
to installing equipment that would detect nuclear weapons being brought,
for example, into the Port of Los Angelesoequipment that should and could
have been in place every American port six months after 9/11.

So it's perfectly possible that nuclear weapons are already in our cities,
and have been there for years. As the Bush presidency winds down, the only
real question is, will they be used to bring the American people to heel,
or will he choose the Paraguay option?
I used to believe that the Administration let 9/11 happen so that it could
have an excuse to attack Iraq and destroy our freedoms. Condoleeza Rice
ignored the FAA warnings because she knew that an attack would transform
an unpopular president into a beloved leader-which it did...for a time.
Given this latest piece of news, I think that anybody who seriously thinks
that the whole event wasn't carefully planned and fed to us as a scripted
"news event" needs to have their head examined. It was planned, period.
Otherwise this reporter wouldn't have been announcing one of the disasters
before it happened. It's inescapable.
This gets me to a subject I have been visiting for years, the Valerie
Plame affair. As I write this, a Washington jury is deciding the fate of
Administration scapegoat Lewis Libby. If he is convicted, it will be for
lying to a grand jury and to the FBI, not for the real crime, which was
revealing the agent in the first place. And, presumably, that will be an
end to the matter.
But, hold on, it might be something similar to Condi Riceis ignoring those
FAA memos. How, you may ask? This is how: Valerie Plame was a non-official
cover, which is a CIA officer working abroad outside of the diplomatic
context. She was an "energy consultant" for a front company called
Brewster Jennings & Associates, which was allegedly involved in, among
other places, Iran. Shortly after she was 'outed,' there were brief
stories here and there in the media to the effect that US intelligence in
Iran had been compromised. Of course, the moment the Iranians discovered
that the Brewster Jennings employees in that country were actually US
agents, they would all have been rounded up.

Given the extraordinary fact that 9/11 now appears almost certainly to
have been pre-scripted and therefore planned, dare we ask the question:
was Valerie Plame's name revealed IN ORDER TO destroy our intelligence
apparatus in Iran?

This would put out our intelligence eyes in a very crucial respect. It
would make it impossible for us to find the vents and air intakes of
buried Iranian nuclear facilities, meaning that we cannot send
conventional bunker buster bombs down those points of access. As Iran has
buried and hardened its crucial facilities against any conventional attack
except one that uses those weak points, we have been left helpless. There
is only one type of weapon available to us that will certainly disrupt the
centrifuges crucial to the manufacture of U-235. They must be shaken so
hard that they break, and right now the only weapon in any western arsenal
that will guarantee this without causing massive collateral damage is a
neutron bomb.

So, if somebody has been spoiling for a nuclear war--dare I say in hopes
of inducing the Rapture--then the destruction of US intelligence
capabilities in Iran would be the best possible way to gain that result.
And the leaking of Valerie Plame's name might have been what would get
that job done.

Too conspiratorial, Mr. Reporter? Time to snort derision at the internet
nut? YOU do your homework--but of course you won't, because you report to
an editor who is telling you to turn up your nose, and if you fight back,
you'll lose your job. And as for that editor--who calls the shots in his
life?

Well, that's easy, because we're now down to about twenty high-level
managers across the whole American press! The outrageous flaunting of the
Sherman Anti-Trust act over the past few years has enabled this situation
to be engineered.

So, do we have a free media? Of course not. And will they continue to
march to the tune of higher powers? Certainly they will.

And the situation is dangerous right now. It is very dangerous. A few days
ago the president of Iran announced that his country would not stop its
nuclear weapons program. Middle Eastern elements threatened devastating
retaliation if Iran is attacked.

If it is attacked, and the attack is nuclear, then I fear that we can
expect a nuclear attack in the United States, from a bomb or bombs that
have been put in place, or allowed to be put in place, by our nation's
enemies, who, I believe, are shockingly close to home.
If you want to know what will happen after that - well, I suggest you read
the script.

1. THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS PROVIDE AN OBJECTIVE SAMPLING OF THE EMBASSY'S KNOWLEDGE OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE VARIOUS TRADING AND INVESTMENT FIRMS ASSOCIATED WITH SAUL N. EISENBERG IN THE REPUBLIC OF KOREA (ROK) OVER THE PERIOD 1953--1978. THE INFORMATION WAS DRAWN FROM VARIOUS MEMORANDA OF CONVERSATION, OFFICIAL CABLE AND AIRGRAM TRAFFIC AND COUNTRY TEAM SOFT FILES. IN COMPILING THIS OVERVIEW OF EISENBERG'S ACTIVITIES, WE HAVE FOCUSED MORE ON THE MODUS OPERANDI EMPLOYED THAN THE SPECIFIC SUCCESSES HE AND HIS GROUP HAVE ACHIEVED. 2. SAUL (OR SHOUL) NEHIEMIS EISENBERG WAS APPARENTLY BORN IN MUNICH, GERMANY, OF POLISH PARENTS ON 22 SEPTEMBER 1922 OR 1921. CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 02 SEOUL 02939 01 OF 04 110708Z IN HIS DEALINGS WITH ROK OFFICIALS, EISENBERG HAS USUALLY IDENTIFIED HIMSELF AS AN ISRAELI CITIZEN BUT HAS IMPLIED THAT HE ALSO ENJOYS U.S. CITIZENSHIP OR U.S. ALIEN RESIDENT STATUS. WHILE LITTLE OF HIS EARLY LIFE IS KNOWN TO EMBASSY SEOUL, IT APPEARS THAT EISENBERG CAME TO THE ROK FROM JAPAN WHERE EISENBERG, WITH HIS FATHER, ESTABLISHED A TRADING AND/OR LOAN BUSINESS SUBSEQUENT TO JAPAN' SURRENDER IN 1945. PRIOR TO 1945, EISEN- Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 BERG IS BELIEVED TO HAVE RESIDED IN CHINA. EISENBERG APPARENTLY MAINTAINED OFFICIES OF EISENBERG AND COMPANY, INC., IN BOTH TOKYO AND SEOUL DURING THE PERIOD OF THE EARLY 1950'S WHILE BROADENING HIS EXPORT-IMPORT AND CAPITAL EQUIPMENT LOAN ACTIVITIES IN EUROPE, SOUTH AMERICA, AND SOUTHEAST ASIA. AT SOME POINT EISENBERG BECAME THE HONORARY ISRAELI CONSUL IN PERU AND HE HAS CALIMED LOCALLY TO HAVE EXTENSIVE BUSINESS DEALINGS IN LIMA, PERU, SINCE AT LEAST 1965. 3. THE EISENBERG COMPANY LTD., WITH ALLEGED INTERNATIONAL HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK CITY, REGISTERED ITS KOREA BRANCH IN SEOUL, ROK, IN AUGUST 1953 SHORTLY AFTER THE ROK GOVERNMENT TRANSFERRED FROM ITS TEMPORARY CAPITOL IN PUSAN TO SEOUL. AT THAT TIME THE EISENBERG FIRM CLAIMED TO BE UNDER THE TECHNICAL DIRECTION OF THE LISBONA COMPANY OF LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, AND IN REGISTERING AS A TRADING FIRM IN THE ROK, THE EISENBERG FIRM CLAIMED TO BE PRINCIPALLY INVOLVED IN IRON ORE SALES FROM INDIA AND AUSTRALIA TO JAPANESE STEEL FIRMS. DURING THIS EARLY PERIOD OF CONTROL OF THE ROK BY THE LIBERAL PARTY OF PRESIDENT YI SUNG-MAN, THE EISENBERG FIRM SERVED AS AN OFFER AGENT FOR SEVERAL WEST EUROPEAN AND U.S. MANUFACTURING FIRMS AND SUCCEEDED IN ESTABLISHING A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH ROKG BUREAUCRATS RESPONSIBLE FOR PROCUREMENT. WHILE THE FIRM WAS REASONABLY SUCCESSFUL AS A COMMISSION OFFER AGENT, EISENBERG'S CONTINUED FOCUS ON LARGE CAPITAL EQUIPMENT SALES, COMPLETE WITH LOAN PACKAGE COMMITMENTS, DID NOT BEAR FRUIT UNTIL THE ADVENT OF CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 03 SEOUL 02939 01 OF 04 110708Z THE PAK CHONG-HUI GOVERNMENT OF 1962 WITH ITS EMPHASIS ON ACCELERATED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT. 4.

OVER THE PERIOD 1961-1974 EISENBERG AND HIS LOCAL ORGANIZATION WERE QUITE VOCAL IF REPETIVE IN THEIR CRITICISM OF THE PATTERN OF U.S. GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE TO THE ROK. EISENBERG CHARACTERIZED THE U.S. ECONOMIC POLICY TOWARD THE ROK TO ANY KOREAN OR, FOR THAT MATTER, AMERICAN, WHO WAS WILLING TO LISTEN, AS HORT-SIGHTED AND COUNTERPODUCTIVE. THE THRUST OF THE EISENBERG SELF-PROMOTION CAMPAIGN WAS THAT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT SYSTEMATICALLY RETARDED KOREAN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BY FOCUSING ON THE CONTROL OF INFLATION AND BASIC INFRASTURCTURE PROJECTS RATHER THAN PROMOTING AN EXTENSIVE INDUSTRIAL PROGRAM WHICH HE CLAIMED WOULD SPUR BROADER GROWTH AND PROVIDE THE ROK WITH FULL EMPLOYMENT. EISENBERG ACKNOWLEDGED THAT LARGE CAPITAL LOANS FOR PLANT CONSTRUCTION WOULD PROBABLY BRING INFLATION AND LARGE BUDGET DEFICITS AND DRIVE UP THE DEBT SERVICE RATIO BUT HE EXPLAINED THAT THIS WAS A NECESSARY IF NOT DESIRABLE SITUATION FOR ANY DEVELOPING ECONOMY. HE CHARGED THAT CONSERVATIVE U.S. GOVERNMENT POLICIES DISCOURAGED THE INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS (PETROCHEMICAL, ETC.) WHICH WOULD ALLOW THE KORENS TO REDUCE THEIR DEPENDENCE ON EXPENSIVE FOREIGN-SOURCED Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 Sheryl P. Walter Declassified/Released US Department of State EO Systematic Review 20 Mar 2014 CHEMICAL AND INDUSTRIAL MATERIALS. THE EISENBERG LINE STRESSED THE REQUIREMENT TO MOVE AWAY FROM U.S. EQUIPMENT SOURCES, INCLUDING PROJECTS SUPPORTED AT LOWER FINANCING COSTS BY U.S. PUBLIC FUNDING, AND INTO A GREATER DEPENDENCE ON WEST CONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 04 SEOUL 02939 02 OF 04 110744Z WUROPEAN PLANTS AND EQUIPMENT WHICH, THOUGH THEY MIGHT COME AT HIGHER COSTS, WOULD NOT INCLUDE FOREIGN GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE AND LOCAL SUPERVISION. EISENBERG WAS NOT ABOVE IMPLYING THAT THE U.S. GOVERNMENT SYSTEMATICALLY EXPLOITED THE KOREAN ECONOMY BY LIMITING OVERALL INDUSTRIAL EXPANSION AND RESERVING THE FEW APPROVED INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS FOR U.S. EQUIPMENT. HE CLAIMED THAT U.SM CONCERNS OVER ROK FOREIGN INDEBTEDNESS WERE MISPLACED AND THUS TRIED TO DISCREDIT THE JOINT U.S. AND ROK SUCCESS IN LIMITING INFLATION. 6. EISENBERG'S STRONGEST CONTENTION - THAT THE U.S. EXERCISED A POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC STRANGLEHOLD ON ROK ECONOMIC PLANNERS TO THE DETRIMENT OF KOREA AS WELL AS HIS OWN EUROPEAN MANUFACTURERS - FOUND FAVOR WITH MANY KOREANS AND ALLOWED EISENBERG IN THE LATE 1950'S TO DEVELOP STRONG FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH KEY ROK ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL POLICY MAKERS WHO LATER CAME TO DOMINATE THE POST 1961 MILITARY JUNTA DECISION-MAKING PROCESS. IN THE 1961-1966 PERIOD EISENBERG SUCCEEDED IN DRAMATICALLY EXPANDING HIS ACTIVITIES AND WAS ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH SEVERAL LARGE INDUSTRIAL PROJECTS. HE REPIED PRINCIPALLY ON HIS LONG AND CLOSE ASSOCIATION WITH THE THEN DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER (MINISTER FOR ECONOMIC PLANNING) CHANG KI-YONG AND THROUGH CHANG'S GOOD OFFICES WAS ABLE TO STRIKE VALUABLE RELATIONSHIPS WITH SSANGYONG BUSINESS GROUP CHAIRMAN KIM SONGKUN AND PAK CHONG-HUI CONFIDANT YI HU-RAK.

EISENBERG WAS IN A POSITION TO OFFER THE GOVERNMENT AND ITS POLITICAL AND FINANCIAL MANAGERS LARGE CAPITAL EQUIPMENT PROJECTS TAILORED TO DESIGNATED ROK PRIVATE BUSINESS INTERESTS. THE CENTRAL THEME OF THE EISENBERG APPROACH WAS TO EXPRESS SYMPATHY WITH THE ROK GOVERNMENT'S REQUIREMENT FOR LARGE CAPITAL LOANS WHILE ACKNOWLEDGING THE UNAVAILABILITY OF THESE FUNDS FROM NORMAL COMMERCIAL SOURCES. EISENBERG STRESSED THE REQUIREMENT FOR PRIVATELY-ORGANIZED LOANS WHICH THE ROK GOVERNMENT COULD INDEPENDENTLY ADMINISTER AND NOTED THAT THE ATTENDANT AUTONOMY OF ACTION ALLOWED THE GOVERNMENT TO ALLOCATE THE FUNDS AS IT (AND THE DRP FINANCE COMMITTEE) CHOSE IN SELECTING THE RECICONFIDENTIAL CONFIDENTIAL PAGE 02 SEOUL 02939 03 OF 04 111516Z PIENT PRIVATE INDUSTRY FIRM. 7. THE COMMISSIONS ON THE EISENBERG CAPITAL EQUIPMENT SALES TENDED TO BE EXCESSIVE BY ANY YARDSTICK AND OFTEN THE EUROPEAN EQUIPMENT SUPPLIER WAS PRESENTED THE CHOICE OF EITHER PROVIDING REASONABLE QUALITY EQUIPMENT TO THE KOREANS AT A NET LOSS OR INSTALLING SUB-STANDARD EQUIPMENT IN ORDER T ASSURE THE MANUFACTURER A PROFIT ON THE SALE. DURING THIS PERIOD EISENBERG SUCCESSFULLY PROMOTED MAJOR LOANS FOR DOZENS OF POWER GENERATION, STEEL MANUFACTURING, AUTO AND TRUCH ASSEMBLY, CEMENT AND PETROCHEMICAL MANUFACTURING, RAILROAD EXPANSION, SHIPBUILDING, MINING AND INDUSTRIL MACHINERY PROJECTS. BY 1965 EISENBERG'S SEOUL OFFICE WAS PROMOTING A LOAN PROGRAM WHICH INVOLVED NO FEWER THAN 30 SEPARATE LOANS FROM WEST GERMAN, FRENCH, ITALIAN AND AUSTRIAN SOURCES WITH A TOTAL VALUE OF EXCESS OF $500 MILLION.

WHILE ONLY A FEW OF THE PROPOSED PROJECTS WERE APPROVED IN THAT YEAR, A PATTERN OF REGUAL EISENBERG INVOLVEMENT IN SEVERAL CAPITAL EQUIPMENT PROGRAMS EACH YEAR WAS ESTABLISHED WHICH WAS NOT ALTERED UNTIL THE EARLY 1970'S. EISENBERG LOANS INCLUDED THE ILL-FATED INCHON IRON AND STEEL CO EQUIPMENT PROGRAM WHICH WAS APPROVED BY THE ROK GOVERNMENT IN 1965 FOR $9.2 MILLION.

THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT APPARENTLY INCLUDED FRENCH AS WELL AS ITALIAN FINANCING AND REPORTEDLY INVOLVED A COMMISSION TO EISENBERG OF $3 - $6 MILLION, A MAJOR PORTION OF WHICH WAS REPORTEDLY DONATED TO THE DRP FINANCE COMMITTEE. EISENBERG INVESTED SOME OF HIS PROFITS IN THIS UNDERTAKING AND AS OF 1972 APPARENTLY STILL OWNED, ON PAPER, 12 PERCENT OF THE FIRM. THE AUTO MANUFACTURING COMPANY WAS ACTUALLY A KNOCK-DOWN ASSEMBLY OPERATION WHICH INCLUDED VERY LITTLE CAPITAL EQUIPMENT.

THE PATTERN OF EUROPEAN CAPITAL EQUIPMENT LOANS AS ARRANGED BY EISENBERG WAS CHARACTERIZED BY THEIR LOW EQUIPMENT QUALITY, RELATIVELY HIGH EQUIPMENT AND FINANCING COSTS AND THE WELLOILED RELATIONSHIP AMONG EISENBERG'S SUPPLIERS, THE ROKG BUREAUCRACY AND THE SELECTED ROK PRIVATE INDUSTRY CONCERNS WHICH BENEFITTED FROM EISENBERG'S INTEREST IN THE ROK. PERHAPS THE MOST UNFORTUNATE BENEFACTOR OF EISENBERG'S ACTIVITIES IS THE GOVERNMENT-OWNED NATIONAL ELECTRICAL UTILITY, KOREA ELECTRIC COMPANY (KECO). THIS FIRM WAS THE RECIPIENT OF TEN OR MORE EISENBEG ARRANGED THERMAL POWER PLANTS OVER THE PERIOD 1965-1975 WHICH WERE UNIFORMLY OVERPRICED AND MEDIOCRE IN QUALITY.

WHILE THIS DISASSOCIATION MAY BE DUE IN PART TO EISENBERG'S DECLINING POPULARITY AND HEIGHTENED PROFILE, THE MAJOR REASON FOR EISENBERG'S REDUCEC USEFULNESS IS THE STRENGTH OF THE ROK ECONOMY TO INCLUDE ITS ABILITY TO SECURE PRIVATE SOURCE CAPITAL FINANCING AND THE DECLINING REQUIREMENT FOR "HIGH COST, HIGH RISK" LOANS AS ARRANGED BY EISENBERG AND COMPANY. 9.

Ex-C.I.A. Chief, in Book, Assails Cheney on Iraq 

By SCOTT SHANE and MARK MAZZETTI
Published: April 27, 2007
WASHINGTON, April 26 - George J. Tenet, the former director of central
intelligence, has lashed out against Vice President Dick Cheney and other
Bush administration officials in a new book, saying they pushed the country
to war in Iraq without ever conducting a "serious debate" about whether
Saddam Hussein posed an imminent threat to the United States.

The 549-page book, "At the Center of the Storm," is to be published by
HarperCollins on Monday. By turns accusatory, defensive, and modestly
self-critical, it is the first detailed account by a member of the
president's inner circle of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the
decision to invade Iraq and the failure to find the unconventional weapons
that were a major justification for the war. 

"There was never a serious debate that I know of within the administration
about the imminence of the Iraqi threat," Mr. Tenet writes in a devastating
judgment that is likely to be debated for many years. Nor, he adds, "was
there ever a significant discussion" about the possibility of containing
Iraq without an invasion.

Mr. Tenet admits that he made his famous "slam dunk" remark about the
evidence that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. But he argues that the
quote was taken out of context and that it had little impact on President
Bush's decision to go to war. He also makes clear his bitter view that the
administration made him a scapegoat for the Iraq war. 

A copy of the book was purchased at retail price in advance of publication
by a reporter for The New York Times. Mr. Tenet described with sarcasm
watching an episode of "Meet the Press" last September in which Mr. Cheney
twice referred to Mr. Tenet's "slam dunk" remark as the basis for the
decision to go to war.

"I remember watching and thinking, 'As if you needed me to say 'slam dunk'
to convince you to go to war with Iraq,' " Mr. Tenet writes.

As violence in Iraq spiraled beginning in late 2003, Mr. Tenet writes,
"rather than acknowledge responsibility, the administration's message was:
Don't blame us. George Tenet and the C.I.A. got us into this mess."

Mr. Tenet takes blame for the flawed 2002 National Intelligence Estimate
about Iraq's weapons programs, calling the episode "one of the lowest
moments of my seven-year tenure." He expresses regret that the document was
not more nuanced, but says there was no doubt in his mind at the time that
Saddam Hussein possessed unconventional weapons. "In retrospect, we got it
wrong partly because the truth was so implausible," he writes.

Despite such sweeping indictments, Mr. Bush, who in 2004 awarded Mr. Tenet a
Presidential Medal of Freedom, is portrayed personally in a largely positive
light, with particular praise for the his leadership after the 2001 attacks.
"He was absolutely in charge, determined, and directed," Mr. Tenet writes of
the president, whom he describes as a blunt-spoken kindred spirit.



But Mr. Tenet largely endorses the view of administration critics that Mr.
Cheney and a handful of Pentagon officials, including Paul D. Wolfowitz and
Douglas J. Feith, were focused on Iraq as a threat in late 2001 and 2002
even as Mr. Tenet and the C.I.A. concentrated mostly on Al Qaeda. 

Mr. Tenet describes helping to kill a planned speech by Mr. Cheney on the
eve of the invasion because its claims of links between Al Qaeda and Iraq
went "way beyond what the intelligence shows."

"Mr. President, we cannot support the speech and it should not be given,"
Mr. Tenet wrote that he told Mr. Bush. Mr. Cheney never delivered the
remarks.

Mr. Tenet hints at some score-settling in the book. He describes in
particular the extraordinary tension between him and Condoleezza Rice, then
national security adviser, and her deputy, Stephen J. Hadley, in internal
debate over how the president came to say erroneously in his 2003 State of
the Union address that Iraq was seeking uranium in Africa.

He describes an episode in 2003, shortly after he issued a statement taking
partial responsibility for that error. He said he was invited over for a
Sunday afternoon, back-patio lemonade by Colin L. Powell, then secretary of
state. Mr. Powell described what Mr. Tenet called "a lively debate" on Air
Force One a few days before about whether the White House should continue to
support Mr. Tenet as C.I.A. director.

"In the end, the president said yes, and said so publicly," Mr. Tenet wrote.
"But Colin let me know that other officials, particularly the vice
president, had quite another view."

He writes that the controversy over who was to blame for the State of the
Union error was the beginning of the end of his tenure. After the
finger-pointing between the White House and the C.I.A., he wrote, "My
relationship with the administration was forever changed."

Mr. Tenet also says in the book that he had been "not at all sure I wanted
to accept" the Medal of Freedom. He agreed after he saw that the citation
"was all about the C.I.A.'s work against terrorism, not Iraq."

He also expresses skepticism about whether the increase in troops in Iraq
will prove successful. "It may have worked more than three years ago," he
wrote. "My fear is that sectarian violence in Iraq has taken on a life of
its own and that U.S. forces are becoming more and more irrelevant to the
management of that violence."

Mr. Tenet says he decided to write the memoir in part because the infamous
"slam dunk" episode had come to define his tenure at C.I.A.

He gives a detailed account of the episode, which occurred during an Oval
Office meeting in December 2002 when the administration was preparing to
make public its case for war against Iraq.

That Cheney cartel is lying about Sept Eleven


These are facts, not opinions:
o Hijacked airliners flew all around the eastern U.S. for hours without
any military response??? How could Osama bin-Forgotten make our air
force stand down, or did Cheney do that???
o The Pentagon was struck by a *hijacked* airliner 45 minutes after two
other *hijacked* airliners struck the WTC, without the airliner being
intercepted, approached, chased, or even seen by our air defenses?
o The Gov't still refuses to release clear video of whatever happened at
the Pentagon to this day, six years later??? Why???
o

The Bush/Cheney regime is using 9/11 as a pretext to brazenly subvert our
U.S. Constitution, launch illegal invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq,
(Iran?), & grant themselves dictatorial powers here at home! They have
committed high treason & must be impeached & imprisoned while we still
have the Bill of Rights!
I urge everyone to watch "Loose Change" free on the web for proof that
9/11 was a *false-flag* attack! Also Google terms like *911 truth* &
visit www.911truth.org www.911blogger.com www.ae911truth.org & other
patriotic, resistance sites!

The massive WTC-7 building was 350 feet from the nearest tower, was
not hit by a plane, yet it imploded in a controlled demolition at 5:20
pm??? It housed many gov*t offices, & the over-insured owner said the
building was *pulled.* Why???
