MAKING SURE IT WOULD HAPPEN
US officials in high positions got over 140 prior warnings about 9-11, from heads of state, and from FBI informants like Randy Glass who wore a wire recording ISI agent R.G. Abbas discussing terrorist plans to blow the WTC. Randy said his "complaints were ordered sanitized by the highest levels of government".
An NBC reporter was able to easily telephone Abbas in Pakistan, but apparently the FBI isn't interested in questioning or extraditing him.
FBI investigations were stymied, stalled, stopped, obfuscated, thwarted both before and after the fact, including FBI translator Sibel Edmunds and FBI agents Robert Wright, Kenneth Williams, John M. Cole, and Colleen Rowley who said it seemed as if a mole from Al-Qaida was running the FBI.
Harry Samit of the FBI, turned out to be star witness for Moussaoui's defense, when he " confirmed under questioning that he had attributed FBI inaction to “obstructionism, criminal negligence and careerism” in an earlier report. One FBI supervisor in Washington told Samit that he was getting unnecessarily “spun up” about his concerns over Moussaoui. This article lays out all the facts, yet still calls it "incompetence", despite the fact that Samit submitted 70-80 memos on Moussauri.
The only convicted 9-11 terrorist so far was in FBI custody at the time. Despite that, FBI supervisors blocked their concerned agents' efforts to search his belongings. It seems like THEY helped Al-Qaeda more that Moussaoui. AND, our govt officials apparently have closer ties to Al-Qaeda than Moussaoui did. He was just a "hanger on".
I'm speaking of top US attorneys James Baker and Michael Chertoff defending terrorism money laundering cases. http://www.takeoverworld.info/quiz.html I'm speaking of Porter Goss, Colin Powell, and George Tenet and others hosting "red carpet" meetings with a foreign official who FBI reluctantly confirmed was the "Al-Qaeda moneyman" after Indian intelligence published that. I'm speaking of our ex-govt officials currently working with Al-Qaeda in Chechnya, as an NGO called ACPC. http://kurtnimmo.com/?p=62
Bin Laden associate from Australia WARNED U.S. in 2000, was ignored. After 9-11, he was arrested.
Contrast that with what police can do if they suspect you have an ounce of coke in your bedroom.
How can you rationally explain this level of OBSTRUCTIONISM in fighting terrorism? How can we rationally explain this level of OBSTRUCTIONISM persists TODAY, since the key agents have gag orders preventing them from talking to people about fixing the problems?
How can we rationally explain that the supervisors who enforced the obstruction, and punished agents who desperately attempted to run around his barriers and take action, received a promotion?
Combine that with the Al-Qaeda case in Germany, which hinged on evidence from the USA. The USA declined to provide the evidence, and the men were set free. The prosecutor called that "incredible". I'd say. What possible reasons would the USA have to NOT prosecute these alleged Al-Qaeda guys? A can of worms?
At what point does "smoking gun" OBSTRUCTIONISM = COMPLICITY?
Kenneth Williams requested follow-up in his July 10 "Phoenix-Memo" (photocopy) but his concerns were also formally rejected. The request was forwarded to counterterrorism chiefs at FBI headquarters and the New York field office ... Officials had previously been unclear about when and how the suggestion was abandoned. But officials now acknowledge that the request was quickly marked "closed," and plans to pursue it were postponed indefinitely.
Williams later said that his memo was "routine" and he did not forsee attacks --- fair enough --- but Dave Frasca, supervisor of the Radical Fundamentalist Unit, chose not to connect his reports with relevant reports of other agents. He once said he never saw the reports, but that was false.
THAT'S FRASCA'S JOB -- SUPERVISE and COORDINATE!!
I WOULD THEREFORE ESTIMATE AT LEAST 150 MEMOS FROM FBI AGENTS TRYING TO PREVENT 9-11 --- AND MORE SINCE THEN TRYING TO TRACK THE CULPRITS or PREVENT FUTURE TERRORISM --- ALL WHICH ARE BEING IGNORED AND FBI AGENTS ACTUALLY SUFFER RETALIATION FOR EXPOSING THIS 'INCOMPETENCE' TOO STRONGLY.
BUT CAN THAT STILL BE CALLED INCOMPETENCE?! I THINK NOT.
I will not tolerate reprisals or intimidation by any bureau employee against those who make protected disclosures, nor will I tolerate attempts to prevent the employees from making such disclosures," FBI Director Robert Mueller told the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 6, 2002. "I want people in the field to tell me what is happening," he continued. "And I encourage, welcome the criticism, the insight, the suggestions, whether it be from the organization or from without the organization." Yet Mueller is the one accused of blocking new info by field agents.
FBI supervisors and others got PROMOTIONS and LARGE BONUSES after the bloody outcome. (World Net Daily)
FBI Supervisory Special Agent Michael Maltbie --- who removed certain information from the 26-page FISA application in the Moussaoui case --- got a promotion.
Maltbie's boss, Dave Frasca got a promotion too.
In order to alter the vital information, they had to have read the memos.
FBI's Radical Fundamentalist Unit in Washington D.C. - by Globalresearch
... Dave Frasca "threw up roadblocks and undermined Minneapolis' ... It is of course impossible to believe that Dave Frasca on his own, is just sitting on this information and not doing anything with it, unless ordered to do so. ...unnamed higher ups .. actually chastised the Minneapolis agents ... for attempting an end-run around Frasca ... Frasca "undercut" the search warrant application ... made damaging changes to the text ...
Even after the World Trade Center was hit, Agent Rowley was warned to "do nothing" . ...why would he deliberately sabotage the case ... jokes were made that FBI Headquarters personnel were "spies" or "moles" who were actually "working for Osama Bin Laden."
Apparently no one mentioned that it could be the other way around i.e., Bin Laden working for the CIA/FBI.
The notion that Bush cabinet members were urging the CIA/FBI chiefs to keep a lit on local FBI investigative actions to arrest or curtail terrorist plots was, at the time, an unthinkable thought. That after all, would not be a joke. It would be one of the most murderous, diabolical cover up committed against American citizens by an American President and cabinet.
BUT NOT WITHOUT PRECEDENT: See Operation Northwoods
previous: John Roberts, a unit chief in the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility, said he knew of senior executives at the FBI who were promoted and got "thousands of dollars in cash awards" while they were under internal investigation for misconduct in the Ruby Ridge case and so-called "Pottsgate" retirement party at Quantico
Would YOU have gotten a promotion (within plant safety for example) if you killed 3000 people at work by disconnecting the fire alarms?
FBI Agent's Report in July "Was Very Specific" "I haven't got any smoking gun. I haven't even got a cap pistol," he said. In general, Porter Goss said, "I have not found a single instance of omission yet where someone had something they should have sent to someone else or anything that is an obvious failure." (Goss of course got a big promotion, too.)
Senator says FBI memo 'takes your breath away'
Sibel Edmunds, who has more Justice Dept. gag orders on her than anyone in US history, cannot even testify fully to Congress on criminal espionage she observed at work, ironically due to "National Security". The 9-11 Commission took her testimony for 3 hours, and boiled it down to one vague sentence about "FBI should follow procedures".
Robert Wright and other military officials have briefly gone public about obstruction, but were censored and punished.
ROBERT WRIGHT'S STORY IS DIFFICULT TO PIECE TOGETHER because he is on government orders to remain silent. Wright did say that FBI bureaucrats "intentionally and repeatedly thwarted his attempts to launch a more comprehensive investigation to identify and neutralize terrorists." Wright was careful not to illegally disclose any confidential details about what he knew, but tears filled his eyes as he apologized to the families of September 11 victims for the Bureau's mistakes leading up to 9/11.
WHOSE SECURITY is protected by Edmunds' and Wright's enforced silence?
Not only FBI, but FDNY fire fighters remain under a gag order (Rodriguezvs-1.Bush.pdf, p. 10) to not discuss the explosions they heard, felt and saw. FAA personnel are also under a 9/11 gag order."Why Did the Trade Center Skyscrapers Collapse?"
John O'Neill is on a permanent gag order. The late John O'Neill was called "too much of a maverick" in his pursuit of Al-Qaeda, if you can believe that. O'Neill, an FBI legend, was just too dedicated to tracking the Al-Qaida. He was disciplined and pulled off the Yemen-Al-Qaida money trail by his superiors under Clinton, due to Ambassador Barbara Bodine's complaints who THWARTED the investigation. He finally quit the FBI, going to work at World Trade Center Security, where he believed Al-Qaida would strike.
His first day --- and last day --- on the job was Sept 11. His body was found in some rubble, after he had emerged and made a phone call, and gone back in to help.
WHO IS JEROME HAUER?
Jerome Hauer is a Bio-Warfare expert who is well known in New York City for having created former mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) in World Trade Center 7 – the building that inexplicably imploded in a freefall on September 11, 2001, without having been hit by an airplane. Hauer’s corporate affiliations include SAIC, Batelle, CSC-DynCorp, Hollis-Eden, and one of the nation’s most powerful private investigative and security firms Kroll Inc.(Wall Street's "private eye"), among others. Now BioPort has been added to his resume.
On the eve of 9/11, in NYC, Hauer was having drinks with his close friend, the recently retired FBI Agent and “Osama-Chaser,” John O’Neil. At that time O’Neil was the head of security at the World Trade Center complex, a position Hauer had helped him to get. O’Neil died in the World Trade Center on 9/11, and it was Hauer who identified his body.
What famous-name person was the principal of a Kuwaiti-backed company which had the contract for WTC security up to fiscal year 2000-2001?? Securacom allegedly disabled key security systems and removed bomb-sniffing dogs, during the week prior to Sept 11, for various maintenance, and ran evacuation drills where people had to leave the building, all of which could have provided a cover to facilitate the obvious engineered demolition.
Answer: Marvin Bush
In late July 2001, Republican David Schippers contacted the Justice Dept, trying to prevent 9-11. FBI agents in Chicago and Minnesota had been developing extensive information on the planned attack for many months.
However, the FBI pulled them off the terrorist investigation and threatened them with prosecution under the National Security Act if they go public. Schippers tries to persuade the govt to take action, but is ignored by Ashcroft.
Schippers is or was representing 10 FBI agents in a lawsuit, including Robert Wright.
A former U.S. Army corporal, Timothy McNiven, blew the whistle on a 1976 government funded study of "Perfect Terrorist Plan" to topple the Twin Towers using jetliners, Arab terrorists and box cutters.
Federal Agents visited his home and demanded his ID back, or they would "tear the place up".

Critics in Congress have been silenced and even had comments deleted from the Congressional Record.
Destroying the Evidence - Atta Papers Destroyed on Orders of Pentagon
Why would critics and witnesses be silenced?
So the truth doesn't come out?
What's the Truth?
The trail of Al-Qaeda leads to Washington --- not merely to Bush --- but to the White House and to the Military-Industrial-Security Complex.
In addition, 9-11 is an International process, which is ongoing. Other nations are having their own terrorist events, some with rumors and evidence of internal sources. There is a period of preparation and planning, and there is the propaganda and legal changes and military changes which follow.
For example, the Beslan incident at the school in Russia. Explosives were stored inside the school. For construction. Connections btw. supposed terrorists and govt. Same for an apt bombed in Moscow.
Indonesian insiders say the Bali hotel bombing terrorists are connected to Intelligence.
Indonesia and Australia are putting in their own type of Police State security measures.
The London bombing has several very questionable aspects, including reports showing that the bombs blew the train floors UP, meaning that bombs were placed under the carriage. In that case, the killed "terrorists" were decoys.
Great Britain is also putting Police State-style security measures, in place, AND Martial Law type rules where the executive overrules Parliament.
This fake "War on Terror" is a coordinated global G8 Event.
Making a Killing provided a glimpse of a shadowy, legitimized global financial network that is employed by criminals of all kinds to carry out or manage the profits from all manner of nefarious activity. It documented how the Bush Administration in 2001 undermined, stalled and withdrew from a global effort to clamp down on money laundering.
the largest, most globalized and heinous case of insider trading in economic history
Large-scale intelligence operations may be compartmentalized, with a small group "in the know" and other participants partially or completely out of the loop. So it's disingeneous to blame "the guv-mint" as a whole, especially for incompetence, though it seems like most government officials are either asleep or timid about stating the obvious.

Sept. 11's Smoking Gun: The Many Faces of Saeed SheikhPaul Thompson says --> If you read just one thing at his website, please read this essay.
Kidnapper and Executioner of Daniel Pearl tied to our ISI ally. FBI Robt. Mueller won't look there.
Don't mind the length and complexity. Saeed Sheikh's story is not just mildly interesting. Understanding the history of this young man may not only explain many mysteries of 9/11, including solid evidence of foreign government involvement in the attacks, but may also reveal if nuclear war in the near future is likely. No kidding. Please read! Note that this was first written in September 2002 but has been thoroughly overhauled based on exposure to additional evidence.

HE ALMOST SPELLS IT OUT - TERROR SOURCES BEING IGNORED. IGNORED, Paul, you said it. YET HIS INCOMPREHENSIBLE CHICKENSHIT CONCLUSION IS GOVT. "FAILURE", SAME AS THE bogus 9-11 COMMISSION.

February 26, 1993: WTC Is Bombed but Does Not Collapse, as Bombers Had Hoped
Salem testifies that the FBI knew about the attack beforehand and told him they would thwart it by substituting a harmless powder for the explosives. However, an FBI supervisor called off this plan, and the bombing was not stopped.
Several of the bombers were trained by the CIA to fight in the Afghan war, and the CIA later concludes, in internal documents, that it was “partly culpable” for this bombing.
1994: US Declines to Accept Documents Exposing Saudi Scandals and Ties to Islamic Militants
Mohammed al-Khilewi, the first secretary at the Saudi mission to the United Nations, defects and seeks political asylum in the US. He brings with him 14,000 internal government documents depicting the Saudi royal family's corruption, human-rights abuses, and financial support for Islamic militants. He meets with two FBI agents and an assistant US attorney. “We gave them a sampling of the documents and put them on the table,” says his lawyer, “but the agents refused to accept them.”
FBI agents are “ordered not to accept evidence of Saudi criminal activity, even on US soil.”

Before Sept 11, 2001: Congressman Says US Intelligence Not Interested in Informant Who Could Pinpoint bin Laden's Location
Rohrabacher concludes, “that our intelligence services knew about the location of bin Laden several times but were not permitted to attack him ... because of decisions made by people higher up.” [Speech to the House of Representatives, 9/17/01]
Congressman Dana Rohrabacher in Afghanistan in 1988.
"Dana Rohrabacher says the Taliban are devout traditionalists—not terrorists or revolutionaries. He believes a Taliban takeover [of Afghanistan] would be a positive development."
With no shame, Dana publicly blamed Clinton for being "too soft" on the Taliban. (Slick Willy wasn't "too soft", he was a collaborator, just like Bush.)
Rohrabacher’s post-Sept. 11 finger-pointing was a fraud designed to distract attention from his own ongoing meddling in the foreign-policy nightmare. Federal documents reviewed by the Weekly show that Rohrabacher maintained a cordial, behind-the-scenes relationship with Osama bin Laden’s associates in the Middle East—even while he mouthed his most severe anti-Taliban comments at public forums across the U.S.
Not to defend Clinton, the Al-Qaeda collaborator. THE FACT OF ROHRABACHER blaming Clinton for working with the Taliban while he himself was negotiating clandestine oil pipeline deals with the Taliban, coupled with the point that one Taliban official actually warned the US in July, and of the CIA and Pentagon working with actually Al-Qaida elements under both parties I doubt Clinton was really much upset about being "smeared". But the next note just adds to the intrigue.
Plenty of other people knew in advance about 9-11 brewing. What was Dana's point about his "omen", besides self-aggrandizement?
September 9, 2001: Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R), who has long experience in Afghanistan and even fought with the mujaheddin there, later claims he immediately saw the (CIA hit) assassination of Northern Alliance leader Ahmed Shah Massoud (September 9, 2001) as a sign that "something terrible was about to happen." He is only able to make an appointment to meet with top White House and National Security Council officials for 2:30 PM on 9/11, when it's too late.
It was our ISI that hit Masood, or Al-Qaida via our ISI ... the ISI works for CIA. Many state the obvious, this was removing Masood to pave the way for Unocal execs Hamid Karzai and Zalmay Khalilzad to run Afghanistan. (Masood had promised to bring freedom and democracy to Afghanistan. Social Democracy is what the US originally overturned.) How could Rohrabacher NOT know that this ISI hit was CIA?
Aug 2, 2001: US Official Secretly Meets Taliban Ambassador in Last Attempt to Secure Pipeline Deal
September 9, 2001 (F): A formal National Security Presidential Directive describing a "game plan to remove al-Qaeda from the face of the Earth" is placed on Bush's desk for his signature. "To be truthful about it, there was no way we could have got the public consent to have suddenly launched a campaign on Afghanistan but for what happened on September 11." How did Bush expect to get public support for his plan to invade and conquer Afghanistan if 9/11 didn't happen?
September 10, 2001: A fifth grader in Dallas, Texas casually tells his teacher: "Tomorrow, World War III will begin. It will begin in the United States, and the United States will lose." The FBI investigates and decides "no further investigation [is] warranted."
September 10, 2001 (B): An Army School of Advanced Military Studies
issues a report written by elite US army officers, which is made public
just prior to 9/11. The report gives the following description for
the Mossad: "Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target
US forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act." [Washington
Times, 9/10/01] After
revelations of a large Mossad spy ring operating mysteriously in the
US, some suggest that the Mossad did in fact do just that on 9/11.
September 10, 2001 (C): In
a speech to the Department of Defense, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld
announces that the Department of Defense "cannot track $2.3 trillion in
transactions." CBS later calculates
that 25% of the yearly defense budget is unaccounted for, and quotes a
long-time defense budget analyst: "[Their] numbers are pie in the sky.
The books are cooked routinely year after year." Coverage of this
rather shocking story is nearly nonexistent given the events of the
next day. [Department
Defense speech, 9/10/01, CBS,
September 10, 2001 (E): Attorney General Ashcroft rejects a proposed $58 million increase in financing for the bureau's counter-terrorism programs. On the same day, he sends a request for budget increases to the White House. It covers 68 programs, but none of them relate to counter-terrorism. He also sends a memorandum to his heads of departments, stating his seven priorities - none of them relating to counter-terrorism. This is more than a little strange, since Ashcroft stopped flying public airplanes in July due to terrorist threats (see July 26, 2001) and he told a Senate committee in May that counter-terrorism was his "highest priority." [New York Times, 6/1/02, Guardian, 5/21/02] Was he starving current departments for funds, with an eye to creating a new Homeland Security Department?
September 10, 2001 (G): A sixth-grade student of
Middle Eastern descent in Jersey City,
Jersey, says something that alarms his teacher at Martin Luther King
Jr. Elementary School. "Essentially, he warned her to stay away from
lower Manhattan because something bad was going to happen," says Sgt.
Edgar Martinez, deputy director of police services for the Jersey City
Police Department. [Insight,

September 10, 2001 (L): At
least two messages in Arabic are intercepted by the NSA. One
states "The match is about to begin" (bin Laden apparently uses

zero hour." Later reports [Reuters,

They were sent between someone in Saudi Arabia and someone in
September 10, 2001 (O): There is a possibility that FEMA's National Urban Search and Rescue Team arrived in New York the night before the attacks. FEMA member Tom Kennedy says in a CBS interview on September 13: "We're currently one of the first teams that was deployed to support the City of New York in this disaster. We arrived on late Monday night [September 10] and went right into action on Tuesday morning [September 11]." FEMA officials said Kennedy misstated his team's arrival date. [CBS, 9/13/01, link is to an audio file] The Boston Herald later says Kennedy's name is actually Tom Kenney, and his wife claims he merely confused the dates. [Boston Herald, 9/5/02] Even if true, perhaps they had other reasons to be in New York that day? When did FEMA in fact go into action?
September 11, 2001 (B): A number of
the hijackers appeared to drink alcohol heavily in bars and watch strip
shows - strange behavior for Muslim radicals. On September 10, three
terrorists spend $200 to $300 apiece
on lap dances and drinks in the Pink Pony, a Daytona Beach, Florida
strip club. While the hijackers had left Florida by this time,
Atta is reported to have visited the same strip club, and these men
appear to have had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.
September 11, 2001: Warren Buffett, possibly the second richest man on Earth [Salon, 8/31/99], schedules a morning charity event inside Offutt Air Force Base in Nebraska. A number of CEOs who would otherwise have been in the WTC attend. Attendees had just arrived when the first WTC attack occurs. This base is the center of the nation's military defenses, and the same base that Bush will fly to later in the day. The timing, probable attendance, and location of the meeting is curious, to say the least, as is the total lack of any mention of the meeting anywhere, except for one aside by a business leader (Anne Tatlock, CEO and President of Fiduciary and Franklin) explaining why she survived the WTC attack.Sept 11, 2001: The 9/11 Attack: 3,000 Die in New York City and Washington, D.C.
September 11, 2001 (G): The 9/11 attack: four planes are hijacked, two crash into the WTC, one into the Pentagon, and one crashes into the Pennsylvania countryside. At least 3,000 people are killed. A more detailed timeline focusing on the hours of this attack appears on a separate page. According to officials, the entire US is defended by only 14 fighters (two planes each in seven military bases). [Dallas Morning News, 9/16/01] And "they no longer included any bases close to two obvious terrorist targets - Washington, DC, and New York City." A defense official says: "I don't think any of us envisioned an internal air threat by big aircraft. I don't know of anybody that ever thought through that." [Newsday, 9/23/01]
Oct 9, 2001: Afghan Pipeline Idea Is Revived
7 of the 19 dead hijackers turned up still alive ... they phoned in. The British Guardian newspaper originally reported that. American press reported that briefly too, but then it disappeared.
As Donald Rumsfeld said: There are things we know.
There are things we know we don't know.
And there are things that we don't know we don't know. (and there are things they don't want YOU to know)
Well, there are many, many things we don't know about 9-11.
As Jim Hoffman points out on http://911research.wtc7.net/, there are many things we will never know because they destroyed the evidence as part of the act, and destroyed the rest later in a rushed demolition and removal of evidence.
There are relevant facts which are shrouded in secrecy ("national security"), investigations not undertaken, questions evaded, "trick" questions Bush won't answer, handpicked 9-11 Commission (as oily as Bush & Cheney, with their own ties to the Afghan pipeline) and their Official Final Report exonerating everyone except "combined human shortcomings" ... and stupid Democrats.
Inconsistent public statements by Bush and crew alternately blames "the previous administration" for "mistakes" and then exonerates Clinton and praises him ... depending on the situation. Who's at fault? Clinton? Bush? Democrats? FBI? CIA? God? Satan? Muslims? Gays and Lesbians? The ACLU? Imperialism? Hard to tell.
Bush alternately defends Muslims and hugs them, but also blames Muslims. At the same time, other Republicans and Republican talking heads compare Muslims to Satan or claim that Islam itself is a Terrorist religion -- unlike the Judeo-Christian Bible which is "devoid of killing and revenge". :-)
Neo-con zombie drones figure out the coded message -- forget what liberals say, hate Muslims.
And hate French, immigrants, blacks, you name it. Hate everyone. Just like Christ said.
Which is it? Are Muslims human, like Bush says ... or demons? Is torture punishable, or policy?
Be careful, because if you get caught or framed torturing, Bush and Rummy will leave you hanging out to dry, like Gen. Janis Karpinski who explained to Alex Jones that prison abuses occurred in areas controlled by Intelligence where she was forbidden to intervene in stopping torture by senior officers.
Local talk radio "suggests" that IF another terrorist attack occurs, which Cheney's crystal ball says is only a matter of time, local people might take random vigilante action against Muslims (what about people who "look Muslim"?) .. but he doesn't actually endorse that ... he only justifies it.
Top neo-cons agree -- one more terrorist attack, goodbye Constitution, goodbye Congress, goodbye America. A military state. Will they really do it?
But, there are many things we DO know.(many of these things are detailed on other specific pages)
We know of a lawsuit brought by 9-11 widows against the alleged Saudi backers of Al-Qaida was successfully blocked, by the Saudis' attorney who is the President's own family attorney, James A. Baker III. Baker claims Saudi officials have (link to page 1) diplomatic immunity. Covering up the terrorism money trail!
As Alex Jones asked, how "in bed with the terrorists" does one have to be before people see it?We know that many of the hijackers and their associates once worked for the Pentagon, FBI, or CIA as "operatives", some had "paid govt informants" as their handlers, some got documented "training" at US military bases (with one such recruiter gone public, Col Steve Butler), and they were hanging out in Florida and elsewhere with Iran-Contra figures tied to the CIA and previous Bush administration with Clinton links.
A group of "terrorists" even hung out on one of the casino "cruise ships to nowhere" tied to one of the many scandals surrounding Jack Abramoff and Tom Delay.
Did they play roulette before they crashed the planes? Did they get lucky, or lose their ass? Did they go just for the free drinks? Maybe the terrorists just wanted to study the Koran and plot Jihad on an offshore resort run by Republicans who are tied to Iran-Contra and to arms dealer Kashoggi?
WERE they even real terrorists? Dupes? Patsys?
We KNOW that some "terrorists" had front groups set up by top Republicans. Grover Norquist, anti-tax-for-the-rich guy, arch neo-con policy writer, close colleague of Karl Rove, religious Christian, was also the consultant for a non-profit set up by one alleged group of terrorists.
(I say alleged because Professor Al-Arian's wife says he's straight -- he was an Arab advocate -- pro-Palestinian -- AND there are pics of Professor Al-Arian on www.madcowprod.com posing next to "W" Bush.
So either he's another fall guy, someone who crossed the wrong person and got stung, or IF he really DID funnel money to bona-fide terrorist groups ... that means that (never-charged) Grover Norquist really was supporting a terrorist network.)
We KNOW that Michael Chertoff has a connection to terrorist funding.
Before Chertoff became DHS director, this prosecutor popped up to play defense attorney for a doctor who founded an HMO in NJ, no prior experience, but suddenly got the entire New Jersey State Medicaid contract, netting millions. He's accused of funnelling money to "unknown persons" outside the US. Why did Chertoff pop up out of nowhere to defend him? Why not defend Prof. Al-Arian too? My gut tells me the doctor who should never have gotten the crooked contract with New Jersey was with Al-Qaida, but Al-Arian is a peaceful Palestinian advocate is getting framed.
We know that facts within the 9-11 Commission Report contradict each other and contradict other facts and contradict timelines from other government agencies, like FAA and NORAD. Mike Ruppert wrote a Book on that.
