'Only those powerful men who know the truth will profit, and every American will have paid for it with their souls, some with their blood...'
Foreign Press Reveals Collin
Powel Negotiated Afghanistan War
The BBC and an Indian news agency in seperate stories, one months before and one shortly after the suicide air attack on America, have presented the most horrendous picture to date regarding the true nature of the terror in NYC and elsewhere:
Prior knowledge. Links to these stories are contained herein.
Those backing President Bushís request for a coalition had better make certain they are getting their fair share of the spoils of war, a war arranged months before the suicide air attacks against the US. A pact for war against the Taliban was made between the United States, CIS (Russia), Pakistan, and India to facilitate a Middle-East to S.E. Asia Oil Pipeline, which cannot take place with growing political and religious upheaval in the region at the hands of the Taliban. Iran is thought to be a covert member to the pact. The combat was initially slated for mid October. America is a Republic, and as a Republic, cannot go to war without probable cause and without the support of Congress and the people. Yet Powell scheduled a war months in advance, indicating PRIOR KNOWLEDGE that there would be probable cause by that time.
Open sources readily show to anyone who cares to look that this war is about oil, but media and government do not mention these facts as it would be inconvenient to the military industrial intelligence media complex. (The major neworks and print organs are largely owned my military contractors and/or the intelligence community.) The problem is that the ONLY logical pipeline routes to serve SE Asia and China all run through Afghanistan or along its borders, largely so close as to be visible from the border. A US-Soviet backed pipeline is considered critical, competing with a proposed Chinese backed oil pipeline project serving the same oil fields in the Caspian Sea region, which includes Iran and several former Soviet provinces. The Chinese began negotiating that project in 1997, causing a great deal of consternation for the Clinton administration and major US oil companies who stood to gain little in the project.
However, the Taliban are fomenting both religious and political instability in the region between Iranian and Pakistani Shiites and Taliban Sunni Islamic sects, with notable success. This unrest makes impractical the financial investment and international cooperation required to construct the pipeline. There is a documented history of oil company and government efforts to deal with this problem, as well as events and other ties which put the Bush family and almost every member of both Bush Cabinets in the middle of partnerships with Middle East oil players, investors, and even the financial involvement and participation by CIA and Arabian intelligence. Worse, when following the money from the illegal insider trades profiting from the air attacks of 9/11, we find the money goes through established CIA money laundering channels which again lead to the Bush dynasty cabinets.
The solution was apparantly to be death warrants for both the Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, and capitalistic terrorist Osama bin Laden, who had apparantly grown too profitable and too strong for his former CIA masters and American business partners to control. Destruction of the Taliban was imperative, but political needs would not permit a simple solution.
For Pakistan and India, long bitter rivals, to partner would require only sufficient profits to make peace between them more palatable. However, Pakistan required a significant motive beyond profits to risk internal conflict due to its nationís divided religious and political landscape, all intertwined with allegiances to the Taliban. There needed to be an extremely irresistible reason for the nationís leadership to back/support military action against what their own citizens considered a virtual spiritual ally.
In like manner, Iran required an irresistible reason to publicly support with vocal blessings American interests in any such action, and at the same time, needed a way to salve bitter wounds between the two countries which would allow future joint financial ventures once the pipelines were ready to be constructed. In similar manner, the United States needed a very powerful and irresistible reason to mobilize America into supporting such a war, a war which would be extremely difficult to prosecute, as the Soviet Union could testify of first hand, having found the Soviet-Afghanistan war to be their ëVietnam.í Red China also has a role to play, and has secretly installed thousands of Islamic Chinese troops into Afghanistan according to normally reliable sources. Yet no one admits this publicly, probably because the Chinese have yet to decide who to back, looking for the best 'cut' of oil profits and oil supply they can manage through high-level negotiations. This is a very dangerous game because the US and CIS have quietly agreed to deploy nuclear weapons in the theater, and because China, Pakistan, and India are also nuclear powers. Literally no two of the countries with nuclear arms have a history of being friendly with each other, making for very uneasy and fragile alliances.
The logical solution which would indeed provide irresistible
reasons for all concerned to cooperate, would now seem to be the horrific
terror campaign against the NYC and Washington DC by former CIA strong
man, Osama bin Laden, who perhaps is still on the payroll after all. The
family ties between former CIA Director Richard Helms and the Taliban,
chief protectors of bin Laden, and the business deals between George Bush
and Osama bin Laden's brother and other bin Laden relatives, as well as
financial partnerships involving the bin Ladens and CIA proprietaries,
gives ample reason to suspect CIA and Osama bin Laden still work together.
The question is, if the war was being secretely planned by the administration...
a war which could not be sold to Americans without such a catastrophic
event... then who really planned the 911 event?
In light of these revelations, American media needs to decide if it will continue to ignore truth and the principles of journalism for its preferred role as Fourth Estate PR spokesperson of government. Will they tell America these facts or hide what the rest of the world already knows through news agencies which have no such loyalties?
Will American politicians find themselves being asked by their constituents if they knew in advance of this death pact, and have the blood of innocents on their hands as coconspirators, or will they demand a full accounting of the facts before signing off on the blood lust boiling over as result of this war plot?
For more information, please review the following news
The first is a BBC story of a former Pakistani diplomat coming forward to tell of his countryís knowledge of the planned war, concerned perhaps that the air attacks were not as advertised. Find it at:
'America will undoubtedly have its unstoppable war thanks to the Fourth Estate, but at what price?' asks Mr. Sweeney. 'Only those powerful men who know the truth will profit, and every American will have paid for it with their souls, others with their blood.' He adds that ìIt is extremely ironic that this plan comes so close on the heels of the release of the James Bond film, The World is Not Enough, which parallels many of the key elements of the underlying story.'
Osama, In American Hospital, Meets With CIA Just Prior to 911
Indiareacts article demonstrates the war against the Taliban was being
planned approximately 4 months or more before the 911 attack. Our source
is India, Pakistan, and the British via BBC. Now from France comes yet
another acknowledgement of prior knowledge and, this time, more directly
implies actual complicity in the attack itself by the United States government.
We might well ask why these multiple news stories, all carried in the media
of our allies in ëAmericaís New Warí, are not picked
up by our ëfreedom loving peopleí who work in the American
press, a press owned by our ëfreedom loving peopleí we otherwise
know as major military contractors.
Three different French media outlets, one being Radio France International, one the print media, Le Figero, which is a much longer and more detailed story (I offer a word of caution), and the third a simplified English text version by the Agence France-Presse (Paris) article of Oct. 31, Bin Laden treated for kidney disorder in Dubai. All tell essentially the same basic story, one which proves concretely that bin Laden and CIA were still incestuously doing favors for each other just weeks before the 911 attack, and further demonstrates prior knowledge, if not outright planning of 911 by the US Government. Consider, if the US was planning the war in expectation of 911-like events caused by bin Laden months before the attack, why would the US be talking nicely with bin Laden in an American hospital roughly two months later - unless fully complicit in the attacks? The importance of the story is outlined, here, the extra details from the longer Le Figero piece...
1) Osama bin Laden left from Quetta in Pakistan and flew covertly by private Saudi jet with no registered flight plans to Abu Dubai, Saudi Arabia on or about July 4, accompanied by his lieutenant Ayman Al-Zawahari, and Egyptian, and four bodyguards, an Egyptian Doctor and male Algerian nurse.
Luxurious American Hospital of Dubai is Favorite of the Sudi Aristocracy
2) There he checked into the American Hospital of Dubai for a ten-day treatment of renal infection by 'very famous' American Doctor, Terry Calloway. It turns out that Osama has kidney failure and requires the use of a portable dialysis machine (ironically, invented by my Father in Law.) Acute renal failure can occur when such machines are not properly used and for other reasons, often requiring immediate hospitalization. Doctor Calloway has refused all calls by media.
3) While in the hospital, Osama bin Laden was visited in private for a period by a known CIA agent who subsequently spoke openly (they use the word ëbraggedí) of the meeting, and as result was immediately recalled to Washington, D.C.
Note: One reason might be to establish Osama as villain
early in the game, that when the time came, it would be easier to pin the
blame of 911 on him. This would imply the 911 attack was being planned
by the U.S. Government for years, most likely as early as the first Bush
administration and the first attack on the WTC by CIA trained and FBI hand-held
terrorists also tied to bin Laden.
4) The longer French article describes the conversation between Osama and the CIA agent as likely discussing the future attacks, and further concludes that oil interests were likely behind the attacks.
If the US was planning the war
in expectation of 911-like events caused by Osama bin Laden months before
the attack, why would the CIA be talking nicely with him in an American
hospital roughly two months later - unless fully complicit in the terrorism?
Should this be FBI's Most Wanted?

Always Follow the Money -NO MATTER WHERE IT LEADS
In the aftermath of the horror of what many are simply calling 911 we find government investigators following the money. Now that strong evidence exists that the true reason for the war is oil, and in the certain knowledge such a war could not be sold the American people without some catastrophic catalyst event, perhaps it is wise to ask if they are following ALL the money.
Indeed, proof of prior knowledge... especially the actual plotting to create the so-called war on terrorism which we are now offered as our only savior... this demands we ask. But both media and government would seem inept at the task, known to have short memories - perhaps because of who the President of the United States is at this time. I do not have a short memory in such things. I seem to recall there was once another President Bush. Iíd like to compare the two histories with respect to the money.
Media has made no secret of the fact that G.W. Bush, like his father, was involved heavily in the Oil industry. Less vocal, perhaps, that the 'family-owned' oil firms which often seemed intertwined heavily in CIA interests, a picture perhaps first presented in Mark Lane's remarkable book, Plausible Denial, which links former President George H.W. Bush to the Bay of Pigs operation and through it, to the subsequent assassination of President J.F.K. by CIA (see CIA sworn courtroom 'confession'.) Ironic to me, BTW, is that a certain recent comedic film about the BOP invasion featured JAKE and Bush (one in the same). Film scripts often have notes penned in the margins, and there is often more than one copy made. These make for very interesting reading, and often, protect their holder.
And barely a mention has been given to the fact that Dick
Cheney, who has enjoyed a role in both Bush administrations, also has an
oil industry background as head of Halliburton (a huge oil industry service
company), or that there are also ties between Cheney and the Bush family
to the drug business. This will lead us to even more cozy ties to vast
media power and, through these, more ties to CIA. So when we follow
the money, we might want to follow all of these trails.
George Bush Gets bin Laden Funds
The Houston Chronicle ran a series of articles starting in June 4, 1992 which attempted to follow the Bush oil investment trail, only to discover what are now seen as financial ties to capitalistic terrorist, Osama bin Laden. According to the Chronicle, entrepreneur James R. Bath, a man involved in CIA proprietaries, guided money to Bush oil firms from Saudi investors in hopes of influencing U.S. policy under President Reagan and Vice President Bush. He brought more than the bin Laden Brothers, to include players from CIA money laundering conduites via the BCCI scandal.
The Bush family, of course, claims no knowledge of where
Bath got his money, assuming it his own. Personally, I find this incredulous
given the many ties to CIA any examination will reveal, in light of the
expertise the elder Bush has in setting up and funding CIA proprietaries.
So, of course, we must presume there was no foreknowledge to the significance
of this investment relative to our war on terrorism. At least we are told
we must. But we might be smarter to consider the entire collective of facts
which strongly suggest other than claimed by the Bush family. Here are
a few excerpted quotes (italics added.)
...documents indicate that the Saudis were using Bath and their huge financial resources to influence U.S. policy. Such representation by Bath would require that he be registered as a foreign agent with the U.S. Department of Justice (he was not so registered.)
According to a 1976 trust agreement, drawn shortly after Bush was appointed director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Saudi Sheik Salem M. bin Laden appointed Bath as his business representative in Houston. (in other words, Bath, who had CIA ties, first entered into the bin Laden relationship while the elder Bush was still likley doing CIA work and headed for Directorship of CIA) Bin laden, along with his brothers (specifically to include Osama bin Laden), owns bin Laden Brothers Construction, one of the largest construction companies in the Middle East.
'When Bush (the Father) ran for President a decade later, several people connected with BCCI offered to help. One intriguing example is Mohammed Rahim Motaghi Irvani, an Iranian immigrant with multiple ties to BCCI, as noted in Chapter 6. In 1987, Irvani wrote to James A. Baker, III, Bushís campaign manager, saying he would like to help in the race (another middle east attempt at influence on the White House?) The letter was forwarded to Baker by former CIA director Richard Helms (a long-time CIA fellow and friend to George Bush who was also associated with the Bay of Pigs operation), with a note describing Irvani as 'a man of substance and decency.''
Indeed, among the figures Bush dealt with indirectly when he ran oil companies was Saudi banker Khaled Bin Mahfouz who, Intelligence Newsletter has learned, is currently under house arrest in a hospital in Taef at the behest of the American author-ities. The latter are looking into contribut-ions Mahfouz is said to have made to welfare associations close to terrorist Osama Bin Laden.
Harken officials, in extensive interviews, maintain that Bahrain wanted a small company (which contradicts what Bahrain officials were indicating prior to the decision) that would devote full attention to the project, a point Bahraini Oil Minister Shirawi confirms. To find one, he turned to a longtime friend, Michael Ameen, a Houston oil consultant who had worked in the Mideast for Mobil Corp. and Arabian American Oil Co. (Aramco).
bin Laden Investments in Biological Research - or Biowarfare?
Now comes The Boston Herald (Bin Ladens Own Stake in Mass. Biomedical Firm, Jonathan Wells/Jack Meyers, Sep 25, 2001) which breaks a story about a very strange biomedical firm and its very unusual investors. Turns out, with further investigation on my part, to go much deeper than the simple but provocative headline would indicate. Not only is the bin Laden family and the same Mafouz from Harken and BCCI money laundering adventures investing in this firm, but also a certain Prince Faisal of Saudi Arabia, who has since been found to also be more recently investing in Harken. In fact, there are more than a dozen Middle-Eastern investors, and at least one mystery investor whos' identity is withheld even on SEC filings - $50M worth of hidden investing.
This firm is particularly strange because it has lost $240M, never making a profit in more than 6 years. These losses were racked up in 'research' which has been essentially unproductive, its only commercially available produc involving research and licenses on the work of others, and for which it has only three clients - clients chiefly given them by one of the license holders. Despite this clear failure to become a sucessfull company, it is paying the top two corporate officers obscene 6 figure (nearly 7) salaries. There is even a $190K loan to the top officer which has risen to a quarter million dollar debt because there have been no payments whatsoever for years. This for a company with only 50 employes, which according to the math from official SEC filings, earn an average well below $20K per year. What kind of high-tech biomedical specialists can you hire for that?
More interesting is that other investors include DOD and military contractors, and key managers come from both Eli Lilly, where they worked under George Herbert Walker Bush, and/or from appointments and/or positions with the National Academy of Science/Institute of Medicine or National Institute of Health under the first Bush Administration. There are a lot of very interesting financial transactions and business decisions to explore, including a bank loan adjusted over and over again, real estate and other transactions where money goes one way, then comes back, and a curious move from one facility to another, and then back again in a matter of months. More interesting than this, is a $1M bank account in a German Bank which has been FROZEN by the German Government in August of 1997. Very interesting, because the firm reports no business in Germany. These curiosities and others make a half-dozen 'indicators' that a firm is a front operation, and so far, the closer I look, the more such indicators I find. The question is, a front for whom, and for what?
Bush Sends Money to Taliban While Planning War
But there are still more oil ties to follow. If it helps media to remember, the US under Bush as President would funnel millions of dollars, arms, and covert intelligence and other assistance through CIA to help the Afghani Mujahadene fight Soviet forces in what would prove to be Russiaís Vietnam. While a ëvictoryí, a chief benefactor of all the training, weapons, and money would prove to be Osama bin Laden, essentially a CIA backed operative. The establishment of the Taliban was thus assured, thanks to bin Laden, CIA, and George H.W. Bush.
And just in time to turn, and bite the hand of the son
of the man who fed them? What it is, and what it seems, are often two different
things. Since the war, money continued to flow to the Taliban from the
current Bush administrations - right up until the air attacks of 911.
Even while Colin Powell was arranging for war with the Taliban, we were
sending them money. Here are excerpts from TASHKENT, Aug 08, 2001 (Itar-Tass
The George W. Bush administration is to provide additional financial assistance to the people of Afghanistan... The total volume of U.S. financial help to Afghanistan will amount to over 132 million dollars this year. Thus, the USA will become the world's biggest financial source for Afghanistan.
The trillion dollar gas and oil fields (an arbitrary dollar estimate, perhaps) in Iran and the Caspian Sea region to its north... and the pipeline to serve these fields may be financial incentive enough for such a double cross, but there is an icing to the cake. Everybody makes money in a war - if they are a part of the military industrial intelligence media complex (MIIM - a term I first coined in 1996 in my unpublished book, Fatal Rebirth). But some people want more than their fair share. Just in time for a looming oil shortage caused by the conflict, which always spells profits in the oil industry, certain CIA entwined oil industry players are shifting into high gear...
The Bush-bin Laden investments in Harken Energy didnít really seem to go anywhere, the company certainly not immediately taking advantage of its Middle-East oil leases except to attract investors. After all, it was a land drilling operation when founded, and had no experience, expertise, or floating drill rigs. But a ënewí focus was established for Harken Energy once it was put the hands of a ëblind trustí as required when entering public office. This new direction was to enter into offshore exploration, regardless of any inherent abilities or resources to do so. But it happens you can subcontract such things. One such company you can subcontract with is Global Marine.
Same Investors, Oil Companies Merge, Poised for War Profits
Who is Global Marine?
A company which coincidentally was formed within months of the formation
of CIA, and which was essentially a Union Oil holding by the time it got
rolling. In 1973 it undertook a contract for CIA to design, have built,
and operate the Glomar Explorer (virtually all Global Marine vessels are
named Glomar something or other.) Construction was contracted to be undertaken
at Howard Hughes Shipyards.
Glomar Explorer & Howard Hughes' HK-1 (Spruce Goose)
Howard was, along with his immense corporate wealth, by now himself largely at the disposal of CIA interests, best seen perhaps by diversion of part of his TWA Airline Holdings to CIA proprietorship in the form of what would eventually become Evergreen Corporation. Evergreen even wound up with Howardís most prized possession, the Spruce Goose flying boat, now in a museum an hours drive from where I type this. Another example is the Hughes Medical Center in Florida which retained the name, but became the favorite haunt of mysterious guests, many of whom checked in never to be seen again in their original persona or state of being. Take that any way you like, and it would be correct (for more on Hughes and CIA, see Jim Hougan, Spooks.)
1973 was a magical year, for it marked not only CIA ties to the Global Marine, but a long 18 year period where the company did not make a profit, according to the Corporate web site. One might ask how a major corporation could survive 18 years of red ink, and still continually add new ships to its inventory, which it dispatched to points around the world. The answer might have to do with bottomless CIA funding (why the name Evergreen was selected for CIAís Airline, Iím told ), and the need to have cover operations near hot spots where agents might need to be inserted, listening posts and supply lines established, and emergency extraction made easy.
This can certainly be argued over by those disposed to protest the notion as mere speculation - but one stark fact fuels this speculation. CIA lost the right to have and endlessly fund proprietaries in 1984 - and so, a few years later, Glomar Marine filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection. This effectively neutralized debt while keeping the firm and its ships afloat, and when considered with the prior 18 year financial red ink magic, certainly gives one pause to consider.
Miraculously, the company instantly took off once more, almost as if there had never been any downturn in its business. Something about a Bush-CIA-driven Gulf War and oil crises at the time seems to have played a role - a war which was, by the way, on the heels of record low prices for crude (which seemed to have no useful impact on the high prices at the pump, which would skyrocket anyway with the war.) Remember that formula: Low Crude Price = War = High Crude Price = Profits.
Of course, CIA also directly helped Global Marineís finances even in the tough times and beyond, in that it continued to pay them handsomely for the Glomar Explorerís operation through 1995 - but this also insured CIA ties remained within the corporate umbrella. Of course, this begs the question - did CIA walk away from a good thing just because the contract expired? Perhaps that question can be answered by the reader once seeing where history is taking us.
Especially with respect to the first Gulf War. Looking back, how might Kuwait adequately thank the US - specifically to thank CIA for manipulating American public opinion and other favors, the Bush family, and friends? Well it may have actually started right after the war, and if so, it would seem to continue to this day - but the answer will need to be unfolded slowly... by jumping ahead to the aftermath of 911.
As with the period just prior to the Gulf War, the price
of crude has now dropped dramatically. An article in the Sept. 26 US Today
says about oil prices based on OPECs decision not to cut production (and
thus drive prices even lower):
Suspicion they would do that sent prices to new lows Tuesday, as investors tried to get ahead of the news, says Cameron Hanover Daily Energy Hedger newsletter. That was after a huge sell-off Monday, which resulted in the biggest 1-day drop in crude-oil prices since the Gulf War in January 1991
Well, if it is, then it might be time to do something really interesting if you are an oil industry player - like for Global Marine to merge with Sate Fe Industries, an American company which happens to have been a sole proprietorship of the Kuwaiti Petroleum Corporation. You guessed it - an interesting little investment in the American oil industry by Kuwait, one which might be seen as a thank you in the context of our earlier question.
Who is Santa Fe? Well, coincidentally, it is another company which grew from a Union Oil beginning and which was founded in, coincidentally, in 1946 within months of the founding of CIA. Unlike Global Marine, Santa Fe specialized in land drilling rigs - until about the time that it became a wholly owned subsidiary of, coincidentally, Kuwaiti Petroleum Corporation in 1981. Like Global, it enjoyed dramatic success, even in the time frame that Global was sinking into the sea of Chapter 11.
Now one unusual feature of this particular Kuwaiti firm doing business in America, is that it is neither incorporated and operated out of America or out of Kuwait. Instead it is operated out of CIAís preferred place to run its own wholly owned operations, the Cayman Islands. Now if CIA was somehow involved, that would be a good thing, because it could then fund a lot of black project stuff without having to trouble Congress one whit about oversight, legality, etc. I sleep better at night...
Perhaps we should next ask about Union Oil, but then we would just get into the Rockefeller Familyís vast holdings in ALL oil companies, and of course, their money and influence goes just about anywhere and everywhere one might look. That would include the (Senator) Rockefeller Commission on Assassinations which elected not to tell us about Marita Lorenze, who testified before it on JFK. It would also include the principle force behind the NWO movement in the United States, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the international Cabal of the Bilderbergers.
Perhaps we should ask if Penzoil and or Harken Energy have been, are, or will be investing in or doing business with the new Global Marine/Santa Fe Entity, Global Sante Fe. It will also be interesting to see if perhaps the new entity will move offshore to the Cayman Islands, which was where Sante Feís corporate registry was maintained. You canít tell these things by the name, apparently.
So there we have the oil industry/CIA/Bush/Middle-East/bin
Laden relationships x 2, once for George Herbert walker and once for George
Walker, each with the help of Bath, Powell, Cheney, and Baker. I consider
it a fragmentary bomb shell packed with little exploding bomblets of coincidence
and convenience. But it does not end there.
Yet More War Profits with White House Ties
T V Parasuram (PTI - a Hindu Television Network, India)
reports from Washington, September 28, that in the war on terrorism, defense
spending will benefit the Carlyle Group, a Washington D.C. bank specializing
in buyouts of defense and aerospace companies. A major investor in
the Carlyle Group is the bin Laden Brothers. Parasuram cites as their source
Wall Street Journal intelligence dispatches (like a wire service.)
In recent years, former president George H W Bush, ex-secretary of state James Baker and ex-secretary of defense Frank Carlucci have made the pilgrimage to the bin Laden family's headquarters in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). Ex-president Bush makes speeches on behalf of Carlyle Group and is senior adviser to its Asian Partners Fund, while Baker is its senior counselor and Carlucci is the group's chairman.
What I fear, is that someone figured out what such an
event might should best be. They next figured out how to engineer it, to
fund it, and to execute it - in a way that made profits. Did Osama bin
Laden act alone? Was he the architect? Follow the money. Look who
benefits. Look at whoís fingerprints are on the war plans. These
are the people who have much to answer for... before I will sign off on
this war. Unless someone can answer some tough questions about all this,
Iíd rather sign off on the arrest warrant of the entire White House
Family Ties: Taliban and Former CIA Director Richard Helms
the Village Voice, an article entitled Mondo Washington: The Accidental
Operative, by Camelia Fard & James Ridgeway, Additional reporting:
Ariston-Lizabeth Anderson and Rouven Gueissaz. This piece documents how
closely the CIA and the Taliban, and perhaps, Osama bin Laden really are,
and hints at the value of Afghanistan to CIA as a tactical opportunity
to capture a new drug supply. It turns out that the niece of former CIA
Director Richard Helms is the defacto ambassador to the Taliban, and thus,
the principle political buffer between the US and Osama bin Laden. Moreover,
it highlights how badly the administration and intelligence community does
NOT want Osama bin Laden captured and brought to justice. Please consider
these startling excerpts, italics added:
June 6, 2001. On this muggy afternoon, a group of neatly attired men and a handful of women gather in a conference room at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (often looked on as a CIA think tank and recruiting ground.) The guest list includes officials from the furthest corners of the world?Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, and Turkey?and reps from the World Bank, the Uzbekistan chamber of commerce, the oil industry, and the Russian news agency Tass, along with various individuals identified only as 'U.S. Government,' which in times past was code for spook.
Laili Helms, his niece by marriage, is an operative, too - but of a different kind...Note: Convenient answer. Rather than take away the capability of bin Laden to direct his people abroad (and perhaps, to communicate with his CIA overseers), a line is drawn in the sand demanding that which was not possible. Why not take the gear and still seek the man, having weakened his ability to avoid capture and engage in terrorism in the process? Perhaps because getting the man is NOT the actual goal. Perhaps he is more useful where he is, doing what he does?
In the same year, Prince Turki, head of Saudi intelligence, reputedly came up with a scheme to capture bin Laden on his own; after consulting with the Taliban he flew his private plane to Kabul and drove out to see Mullah Omar at his HQ. The two men sat down, as Helms recounts the story, and the Saudi said, 'There's just one little thing. Will you kill bin Laden before you put him on the plane?' Mullah Omar called for a bucket of cold water. As the Saudi delegation fidgeted, he took off his turban, splashed water on his head, and then washed his hands before sitting back down. 'You know why I asked for the cold water?' he asked Turki. 'What you just said made my blood boil.'
Early this year, the Taliban's ambassador at large, Hashami, a young man speaking perfect English, met with CIA operations people and State Department reps, Helms says. At this final meeting, she says, Hashami proposed that the Taliban hold bin Laden in one location long enough for the U.S. to locate and destroy him. The U.S. refused, says Helms, who claims she was the go-between in this deal between the supreme leader and the feds...
Perhaps we should ask why we are really going to war,
and who really ordered the 911 attacks. As my friend and author Alex
Constantine has said in his own newsletters on topic...
The entire case against Osama Bin Laden rested on the claim that the identities of the hijackers were known. That claim fell apart when even the US admitted that the hijackers had used phony identifications with the stolen identities of mideastern arabs on them. Moreover, the hijackers had made a conspicuous display of themselves in various locales to make sure that the stolen identities would be remembered. The forged IDs wreck any chain of evidence that leads from the hijackers to those who controlled them.
This was in 1988, just as the elder Bush was heading to the White House and just months away from the first Gulf War. The death may have helped secure a scandal-free ride for Elder Bush... may have represented a solution to a rift between the bin Laden Brothers and the Bush Oligarchy... may have marked or even caused the turning of Osama against the US for reasons of revenge... or may have been completely accidental as NTSB would tell us. But NTSB has no credibility, having repeatedly been shown to falsify or cook official NTSB investigations when politically expedient. The following excerpts from PBS Frontline (found in REVEALING articles from the Progressive Review) will not only confirm these facts, but will likely teach you more about the bin Laden family in 60 seconds than all of media has told you in the many weeks after 9-11. I wonder what they don't want you to know, and why...
Errata: Other news accounts specify the aircraft was a homebuilt ultralite, and that the NTSB did not investigate the crash because they do not investigate ultralight crashes. There is disinformation afoot, obviously, because NTSB DOES investigate such crashes. Further, the details about the BAC 1-11 seem quite pointed. Also, many of the news accounts (today) make it out to be Osama's Father, not his Brother (I originally repeated that error, here.) The crash in 1968 was Osama bin Laden's Father. There is obviously more to this story than history has elected to record... which leads me to ask WHY.
...Like his father in 1968, Salem died in a 1988 air crash...in Texas. He was flying a BAC 1-11 which had been bought in July 1977 by Prince Mohammed Ben Fahd. The plane's flight plans had long been at the center of a number of investigations. According to one of the plane's American pilots, it had been used in October 1980 during secret Paris meetings between US and Iranian emissaries. Nothing was ever proven, but Salem bin Laden's accidental death revived some speculation that he might have been "eliminated" as an embarrassing witness. In fact, an inquiry was held to determine the exact circumstances of the accident. The conclusions were never divulged... There was also a political aspect to Salem bin Laden's financial activities...
Of course, we donít know Harken was (or is) used
by CIA, only that CIA seems to be involved peripherally in every aspect,
just as seen for his Fatherís companies. But we do know this from
excerpts From a HOUSTON, March 15 PRNewswire - Harken Energy Corporation
security issues surrounding its (Harken) Colombian Operations have increased significantly in the recent past... In addition to these security issues, the Company has also become the subject of media focus in Colombia that may further complicate its security position in the country... The Company is also currently analyzing and upgrading its security procedures and will initiate immediate action to expand security measures for both personnel and field operations... Mikel D. Faulkner, Harken's Chairman and CEO stated, 'Although we expect to continue our efforts in Colombia, presently, the Company must focus more management time and financial resources on the recently increased security issues confronting our personnel and operations.'
As I explore the oil profit motive, know that others have explored the drug profit motive. Afghanistan has only one cash crop, and it is poppy fields which are used only to make heroin. Once again, it is the same players: Bush, Cheney, Baker, and CIA - but a whole different set of corporate players, though they, too, are from the oil industry, and they, too, are very involved in both the Gulf War and our war on terrorism.

From Newsweek we learn that the
ehe Pentagon has turned over military records of five men to the FBI. In
an article Alleged Hijackers May Have Trained at U.S. Bases, by George
Wehrfritz, Catharine Skipp and John Barry <http://www.msnbc.com/news/629529.asp>,
THREE OF THE alleged hijackers listed their address on drivers licenses and car registrations as the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla.óknown as the ìCradle of U.S. Navy Aviation,î according to a high-ranking U.S. Navy source. Another of the alleged hijackers may have been trained in strategy and tactics at the Air War College in Montgomery, Ala., said another high-ranking Pentagon official. The fifth man may have received language instruction at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Tex. Both were former Saudi Air Force pilots who had come to the United States, according to the Pentagon source.
Airline Passenger Lists May Offer Suggestive Clues to Deciet
NEW! 10/31/2001 The following letter to the FBI regarding a very simple, logicl, and OBVIOUS question NO ONE IN MEDIA has DARED to ask. Almost immediately after the attack, the government was citing Islamic terrorists, soon enough producing names and telling us what flight they were believed to be on. Of course, there was the issue of falsified passports and other documents which led to some general embarassments, but the investigation rolled on - seeming to ignore a couple of fairly basic facts. For instance, the official lists of passengers released by the airlines included NO ARABIC NAMES. FBI, in turn, lists a number of alias' for the terrorists, but NO NON ARABIC NAMES. Here begines the simple basis for challenging the very notion of who actually was involved, and how the aircraft were actually hijacked.
Oct. 31, 2001
Unit Chief of The Press Office
In the matter of the 9/11 attack on America, there is a problem which seems to impact significantly on FBIís investigation and which makes little sense to this investigative writer. As your office is no doubt aware, I am a harsh critic of flawed FBI investigations, especially relating to air crashes such as Flight 800. Once again, FBI would seem to have left itself open to criticism by failing to publicly address fine points which critically undermine credibility when examined by simple deductive critique. Given the tremendous implications of this particualar case, I hope FBI can for once provide answers which do not inspire further challenges, and which instead restore faith in Agency.
FBI public press release statements of 9/14 and 9/17 of this year list 19 Arabic terrorists named exclusively with Arabic names and alias'. The airlines provide passenger lists listing ONLY non Arabic names. The airlines claim their public lists, each short of manifest counts by at least six names per aircraft, are incomplete due to ëfamily wishes.í This implies that all remaining names on their lists do NOT contain the names of terrorists, but are legitimate passengers. It is presumed that FBI would have by now dutifully verified the identity and legitimacy of each and every passenger against possible hijackers. Why have not the airlines updated their public lists now that FBI has released the terroristís names, and why do they still maintain that it is a matter of family wishes, failing update their lists despite public statements that such updates are policy?
It is conceivable that some of the missing names were of Arabic hijackers, but pending FBI findings, it may have been considered unwise to mention Arabic sounding passengers publicly who might later prove innocent in the final analysis. If this is so, why not simply so state? Has FBI requested the airlines NOT to so state Arabic names for such a reason? If so, why has this fact, and updated passenger lists including hijacker's names not been made public now that hijackers have been identified?
If the above is not true, the conclusion is that perhaps the remaining names were not Arabic, or at least not in sufficient quantity to match the number of claimed terrorists. Can the FBI state categorically that the terrorists boarded under non-Arabic surnames, and if so, which names on the passenger lists, published or withheld? If so, why has this information not been made public in the form of updated passenger lists, as it would help the public to contribute useful information on hijackers and their helpers per FBI requests?
If nothing thus far is true, the hijackers were not on the passenger list at all. This would mean they had to have covertly entered the aircraft and remained concealed until time of hijacking. There is only ONE possible way to achieve this I am aware of, being familiar with this class of aircraft via the Flight 800 investigation - that they boarded secretly and evaded flight crews until the time of their attack by means of boarding through the process of meal delivery, or possibly cargo delivery. Did the hijackers in fact sneak on board, and if so? If so, by what means, and by what evidence is this known? Why has FBI failed to report this publicly? Surely any security policy changes required to prevent future abuses of the sort have by now been implemented, or have they? If not, why not?
Further, such access would preclude the need for limiting weapons to ëknivesí and would allow firearms and other tools of the trade. Such weapons would make sense only if the hijackers were passengers. If FBI is to admit that covert entry was applied, how does FBI explain the limited weaponry applied?
Please clarify the above problems,
because in the absence of any explanation, FBI would seem caught in a catch
22 situation. FBIís whole argument that Arabs hijacked these planes
would seem to have no basis in fact, despite any supportive evidence uncovered
elsewhere. Either they were on the plane, or they were not. If they were,
then you must have evidence of it in the passenger lists. If you do not,
then you must state how they might have been able to covertly gain entry
and hide, and why they did not have better weapons. If you cannot do either,
then from whence came the notion of Arabic terrorists in the first place
- since all other evidence came after public statements to that effect?

NOILWAR! is a non-profit group of Americans and other citizens around the world seeking... 'To inform and educate the American Public about the existence of prior knowledge of the war by government, and the oil profit motive which lies behind it, in an effort to force media and government to acknowledge and answer these charges before spilling blood, and to insure that the true cause and source of the air attacks of 911 are known before targeting any group or nation. We do so in the belief that government in a Republic must be challenged at all times to insure that it is subject to the will of the people for the good of the people. It is not the other way around, nor is it to be a government working for the good of corporate or foreign interests.'

'Only those powerful men who know the truth will profit, and every American will have paid for it with their souls, some with their blood, all with blood and oil on their hands.' He adds that ìIt is extremely ironic that this plan comes so close on the heels of the release of the James Bond film, The World is Not Enough, which parallels many of the key elements of the underlying story.'

CAUTION - Possible Disinformation Through Carlyle Group
author (H. Michael Sweeney) is considered by many to be an expert on disinformation
as applied by the intelligence community. It therefore behooves us, on
behalf of NOILWAR!,
to consider the role of disinformation carefully in this matter - not just
in the stories fed us by media, but also the possibility that the very
evidential resources presented on this page might themselves be part of
some clever disinformation ploy. Always judge the merits of any argument
for or against a controversial topic by the quality of the source cited,
the content thereof, and the relevance to known facts, and with logic.
It is for example, consider the articles from Indiareacts and the BBC which started interest in and belief in the oil war concept, and which caused strong questions to be raised about so many of governmentís more dubious claims regarding the terrorism. It is conceivable that some foreign power or other interested party might have planted these stories for some ulterior motive not yet apparent. I have tried to analyze for such a possibility by asking who would gain? Finding no obvious takers, I tried to force fit players such as subversive elements within Indiaís own political nightmares, Pakistan and its own internal contenders for power, and so forth. Still not reasonable fit.
The fact is, that the entire matter can certainly be other than the stories present. Just because I can find no such reason does not mean it might not exist. Frankly, I would hope that one does exist - that indeed, terrorism alone is responsible for 911 and all that followed. I would happily accept the charge of being fool if it guaranteed my world was as media and government tells me. That would mean no traitors in government and profiteers from war - at least not deliberate profiteers. But there is one very logical way to find out. Demand answers.
That is the whole purpose of NOILWAR!
Our government and media must be forced to acknowledge these charges of apparent crimes of conspiracy and defend themselves against them. Let them prove there is disinformation and the cause. If they cannot, and the stories are legitimate, they stand condemned as charged. But unless a criminal conspiracy is charged, they cannot and need not put on a defense, and continue to get away with the crime. But as it happens, upon hearing that such charges might be levied, a good conspiracy can find yet one more way to avoid getting caught in their crimes. It is found in the element present in every government fostered conspiracy, the element called DISINFORMATION.
So perhaps the charges implied due by the BBC and Indiareacts and the rest are true, but by clever use of disinformation, the conspirators will be able to wriggle out of being charged at all. There are a number of rules and traits of disinformation which can be used, but there is one which seems to work perhaps best of all, and it is called ëthe strawman.í That is where you create or find a weakness in the truth-seekerís argument or case, and destroy it utterly, making them seem foolish in their effort. You then apply another rule which is ëassociation with old charges.í Should they find or bring up any new evidence, you attack them and their message by bringing up how foolish they were in the first attempt. In such a manner, even a smoking gun can be ridiculed and ignored by media and an unwary public. That is why understanding disinformation and knowing what to do about it is so important.
In the matter of prior knowledge, I have discovered what appears to be a possible attempt at disinformation. Find it here in the story of Osama bin Laden in the hospital being visited by a talkative CIA agent. When I first read the story, I had a couple of gut-level reactions which suggested it might be disinformation. But the story came from multiple mainstream media outlets with extremely good credentials, so I decided the wise thing was to report its existence and ramifications. YOU, the reader, deserve to form your own opinions by having both sides of the story.
Examining the story in question, there are several points
that, as I had indicated, represent warning bells of possible disinformation.
1) Too many details. Liars tend to embellish with lots of details as if the added realism will convince all the better. Most stories of this type stick to minimal basic facts and focus on the main points. This one gives names of peripheral persons, methods of travel, and so forth, all unnecessary EXCEPT that they paint a picture that would be appreciated by anyone looking for a conspiracy;
And, as stated, new information has come up. It was pointed
out to me that Oliver Burkeman and Julian Borger wrote a piece for the
well-known UK media giant, The Guardian, a piece called The Presidentís
Club. This article fits well with other revelations here about the
financial rewards due those pressing the war, in that it focuses on The
Carlyle Group - the epitome of the military industrial complex Eisenhower
warned us about in his farewell address. By coincidence, also written on
October 31, 2001, the piece happens to mention a very interesting fact.
Figero, one of the French sources for the story on Osama in the hospital
is controlled by The Carlyle Group. I suspect the others may be, as well.
Bingo - the straw man is destroyed, and all other evidence becomes moot, associated with old charges. Iím sorry, but that wonít work, if that is the game. We do not rest our case on Osamaís hospital stay. We rest it on a larger body of cumulative and mutually supportive facts of the matter. Disinformationalists may be able to destroy one element, but as long as we demand full explanations and ourselves warn of possible disinformation, they can only win by successfully defending against the full charges - not by simply destroying their own straw man created for the purpose.
But before we throw out the Osama hospital story entirely, understand that the other possibility is that the basic story is true, but that this ëextra-paddedí version of it was released to use the strawman tactic to destroy its value. Perhaps Osama was in the hospital. Perhaps he did meet with CIA. Perhaps the story was about to come to light and they could not stop it. But perhaps someone wants us to think it did not happen, so they released the story themselves before anyone else could, adding details (too many details) which could later be found untrue by on-the-spot investigating reporters (working for controlled media, of course.) Or, perhaps the whole story is true. Time will tell - but only if we demand it happen. Do not fear disinformation - deal with it!
All in all, it is very interesting to see all the twists and turns the other side is willing to go through to sell us ëAmericaís New War.í Iím rushing out to buy the super economy size right now. How about you, my fellow ëfreedom loving people?í
