Did You Know?

Acting Joint Chief of Staff General Richard B. Myers stated that he saw a TV report about a plane hitting the WTC but thought it was a small plane. So he went ahead with his meeting. By the time he came out of the meeting the Pentagon had been hit.

The Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was at his desk when the Pentagon was hit. After he was notified, he went to the war room.

Mohamed Atta had attended International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama; Abdulaziz Alomari had attended Aerospace Medical School at Brooks Air Force base in Texas; Saeed Alghamdi had been to the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. These are all names of identified hijackers, so why has the U.S. government attempted to deny the match? As early as three days after the 9/11 attacks, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III claimed that these findings were new and had not been known by the FBI previously. This claim is a lie.

At a time when the U.S. intelligence community was on alert for an imminent Al-Qa'eda attack, the Bush Administration made it easier for Saudi visitors to come to the U.S. under a program called U.S. Visa Express, introduced four months before September 11th. Michael Springmann, former head of the Visa Bureau at the U.S. Consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia said that he was repeatedly ordered by high-level State Department officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants. His complaints to higher authorities at several agencies went unanswered. In a Canadian Broadcasting Company interview, he indicated that the CIA was indeed complicit in the attacks.

FBI Agents are said to be in the process of filing a law suit against their employer for the right to go public.

From day one, there has not been a shred of publicly available evidence against Osama bin Laden. Up until mid December, there was nothing but the continued repetition of his name. The official documents detailing allegations against bin Laden provide no convincing evidence.

Pakistan's Intelligence Agency (ISI) was indirectly involved in September 11th. The US government protected ISI's Director-General Mahmoud Ahmad, and itself, by asking him to resign quietly after it was discovered that he funneled $100,000 to Atta before 9/11, thus blocking a further inquiry and a potential scandal.

The USA and Osama bin Laden are not the enemies they pretend to be. Senior members of the Bush administration have close links to the bin Laden Family, and this relationship is still going on behind the scenes implicating the Bush Administration, the CIA, George H. W. Bush, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and The United Arab Emirates in the atrocities.

Osama bin Laden's close working relationship with the CIA began in the 1980's. The claim that they have since fallen out is a lie. According to the mainstream media spin, this is OK, because the rest of the family has disowned Osama for his terrorist activities and anti-US views. This spin is also a lie.

The "blowback" thesis is a fabrication. The evidence amply confirms that the CIA never severed its ties to the "Islamic Militant Network." Since the end of the Cold War these covert intelligence links have not only been maintained, they have become increasingly sophisticated.

Executive CIA Director AB "Buzzy" Krongard was one of those who profited from selling short on American and United Airlines shares.

There were also unusual trades on several companies occupying the World Trade Center, including Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co., and Merrill Lynch & Co. These multiple, massive and unprecedented financial transactions point unequivocally to the fact that the investors behind these trades were speculating in anticipation of a mid-September 2001 catastrophe that would involve both United and American Airlines and offices in the Twin Towers. To date, both the Securities & Exchange Commission and the FBI have been tight-lipped about their investigations of trades.

Tom Kenny, who was with a rescue squad from FEMA, told Dan Rather of CBS News that, "We arrived on Monday night (September 10th) and went into action on Tuesday." How is it possible for high government officials to have been caught by surprise as some claimed?

Both the US and the USSR are responsible for the rise of religious extremism, terrorism and civil war within Afghanistan since the 1980s. The US, however, is directly responsible for the cultivation of a distorted 'jihadi' ideology that fueled, along with US arms and training, the ongoing war and acts of terrorism within the country after the withdrawal of Soviet forces.
