About the Time Line - How to Get the Most From It                      Return to NOILWAR! Main Page

NOTE: UNDER CONSTRUCTION - and repair from hacking and Web sit hijacking. Appears someone has changed details here and there such as dates, perhaps as a tool to discredit. Rely upon the originals cited in links and report variences.

If you have come to this page by link, there is an introduction to the players and other informative  (short)  articles which introduce the time line collected at the NOILWAR! main page. This work was compiled with the help of dozens of NOILWARRIORS! who helped research suitable references. Please consider becoming a NOILWARRIOR! today.

The timeline is constructed in a way which should simplify reader review. The left hand column uses pictograms for quick visual identification by topic, and also includes a 'headline' or teaser line to summarize the value or import of the event -- an attempt to challenge the reader to learn more. The pictograms are reproduced larger when first introduced, which aids in spoting new topical elements. It should be stated that the pictograms do not always neccessarily represent the person shown, but the the person shown represents the person of interest in the time line element. For example, it would be meaningless to most readers to see an image of Osama bin Laden's Grandfather or father -- but when we see Osama's face, we understand it relates to him and his family ties. In like manner, some pictograms, such as for Unocal, sometimes stand in for broader categorical representation -- i.e., the oil industry.

Since the details and significance are at great odds with the picture presented us by government and media, I have tried to indicate appropriate resources, and have attempted to use the same resource as often as possible where multiple resources might exist, to make the reader's follow up as simplified as possible. In some cases, the resources are offered elsewhere in the form of more detailed presentations I have prepared for the purpose, such as the one on Ali Mohamed -- well worth a read. Please do follow the resources and other links, when provided, for a fuller understanding, as well as the references and links found at those destinations. Don't just take my word for it -- I come by any bias against Middle East wars honestly -- born of lies and concealments within media and government PR.

In some cases, the reference listed may be to a dead end link, or not be the only useful reference (just the one deemed most useful). This is most likely because many news organs, especially those who 'sell' their on line access, will rotate Web pages from on-line access into a 'researchers' for fee database. You can only access the page by paying a fee. Not to panic. If that happens, go to unansweredquestions.org. There you will find what is the largest collection of complete 911 related events. Paul Thompson has done a marvelous job of collecting and organizing (a very tough task) material into multiple threads, with color coding, and multiple references. He has also taken the time and (massive) Web space to reproduce the entire news article in almost every instance -- under the Fair Use law. By all means, visit his site along with mine, because his analytical commentary (italic texts) sometimes represents alternative views or questions. Indeed, about 20% or more of my time line elements came from review of his site.

The right hand column gives more details to flesh out the headline teaser, an attempt to illustrate the true meaning or questions raised by the event. Where key to understanding, there will be pointers to other related time line events. The time line is broken down into several primary sections to reflect pre and post 911 events, but each event is sequentially numbered to continue through all sections as if one.

What is not in THIS time line are elements which do not provide evidence of prior knowledge or culpability, or events which might seem related to 911 in such a way but which are less tangible, to date. For example, there are approximately a half dozen Enron projects in the Middle East and Caspian - Pakistan/India region, which represent tens of billions of dollars of investments which seem to have gone nowhere, especially since the bankruptcy of Enron. Partners and benefactors in these investments invariable include key governments, oil companies, and elite Saudi. At some point in the future, I believe, it will be possible to show these to be covert funding projects -- that ENRON was largely a CIA front operation intended to fail as a means of obscufication of the money trail. I cannot make that case well, today, however -- not in the time line. A few time line events are included which do not reveal culpability or prior knowledge but which provide important reference points in history -- such as the Afghanistan invasion by the Soviets.

Special Time Line Mysteries and Their Relevance

I further point out one more unique characteristic of the great bulk of events in the time line. The simplest way to illustrate this unique nature is to ask a question: Why is it, that whenever government and media seems blind to any possible conspiracy within government, that virtually EVERY aspect of the facts of the matter RAISE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS and can be seen as problematic, implying wrong doing, or invalidating the official story sold to us in media and by government?  I'm talking about obvious questions media refuses to ask, or asks only in passing without ever answering. It was this way with JFK, and their response was to call us conspiracy theorists for doubting the Magic bullet and lone gunman lies. It was that way with Waco, and the Oklahoma City bombing of the Murrah building (which has multiple ties to 911), and with Flight 800, Vince Foster, BCCI, the S&L failures, Whitewater, Mena Arka
s, and so forth. And, there are even ties between 911 and many of those events, as we shall see. That alone should raise huge warning flags.

That partial list of government scandal (mostly the intelligence community) is merely the tip of the iceberg. But nowhere in our flawed American history has the phemomenon been more demonstrable than in 911. Yet media questions not. But given that media is largely owned by the military industrial complex (I call it the military-industrial-intelligence-media complex, or MIIM), that should be expected - AND CHALLENGED at every opportunity. We are talking about the organized and methodical looting and destruction of America while at the same time using disinformation and lies to dumb us down to it. Draw your own conclusions about Operation Mockingbird vs. the truths revealed in international media which are found in the timeline. It seems that many nations know more about the truth of American historical events than do we Americans. Why?  Why does not media report what other nations think about us when it disagrees witht he official line? Because it exposes our Anchors and our Editors as liars, not to mention our politicians. And shades of war on Irag... take a look at the official Congressional Record on lies offered in Congress in order to foment war against Iraq, and what Congress did when those lies were discovered.

Note: For your future research convenience, the small date at page top represents the last date this page was changed on the Web site. I will incorporate such dates in the left-hand column of the timeline so you know when an element was added to the time line or modified. Please feel free to contribute suggested additions that seem verifiable to you, but understand limitations on my resources will impact my ability to review, evaluate, and use them.

Suggested Pictographic Study Paths:

All reviewers  should pay close attention to the red smoking gun -- proof that the war George Bush screams for with Iraq was planned as early as 1996 - 1997. But the oil Grand Game (international competition for control of the Caspian region) requires such a war be able to go after other regional oil producing states as well, something not possible during the first Gulf War -- no reason at the time suitable for convincing the American public and other nations to go along for the ride beyond Iraq. That is one reason why the war was cut short of going into Baghdad. The terrorism 'wild card' was not yet ready to implement, Osama bin Laden was not yet big enough -- not suitably marketable (see The Marketing of Osama bin Laden and Oil War III) as a threat; George Bush, the oil companies, and the arms industry NEEDED 911.

First time initiates   should first review the Bush family threads. There is a consistent and highly methodical pattern of inpropriety which represents profiteering and abuse of power. Some of the elements have smoking gun qaulity. Next, review the smoking gun time elements and learn why NOILWAR! exits in the first place.

NOILWARRIORS  Look for the Unocal pictogram the mystery Mr. Z and Mr. HK related events. Follow with a review of the Taliban, Osama, and George bush events. This is the fast track to understaning what is discussed in Oil War III.

Political activists  concerned about abuse of power or the NWO should review the CFR and related pictograms, the Carlyle Group, and the various federal agencies, being sure to review ANSER and PNAC. The above NOILWAR!elements would also be illuminating. Then review all the Bush and Bush cabinet member icons.

Victims of government harassment  might like to review the pictograms haveing to do with political control technology and terrorist Ali Mohamed, who apparantly has a background in CIA type psychological manipulations -- what many would call mind control.

Researchers and others  who already have a considerable understanding of the basic flaws in the official 911 story:  Focus on the smoking gun time lines as well as pictograms which seem unfamiliar or unexpected. I especially recommend the Ali Mohamed and flight school events because they each, on their own, are incredible proofs of wrongdoing and complicity on the part of the US military intelligence community; strong indications 911 was an Operation Northwoods scenario in support of oil wars and a power grab here in the US. There are significant ties being established between the terrorists and Global Hawk technology, not the least of which involves work to undercover same by a network of 200 Israeli spies operating in the US.

Pre September 11 Event Chronology

Bush family history of trading with enemy and fascism established
Photo CNN
Source: Unauthorized Biography of George Bush, Congressional Record 
Enforcing the Trading with the Enemy Act, the US Government seizes the assets of Union Banking Corporation, Prescott Bush's Nazi friendly business responsible for numerous business deals between Nazi war industry firms and US companies, arrangements and deals which continued well after America entered the war. Other Bush firms and other partners are also involved, persons who will play a role in establishing the CIA and getting George Herbert Walker Bush started in the oil industry (a CIA proprietary.)
1947
Bush family plays a role (with others) in establishing CIA

Source: Research accumulated for my book, MC Realities, perhaps best documented there. 
The mechanics and details are too complex to outline, here. But the outcome reflects the effort. The ranks of CIA over the years are filled with members of the secret society, The Skull and Bones, which is in turn tied to the German secret Thule Society, a like organization which boasted key members of the Nazi movement in Germany. Two other secret groups are also common, and the  Bush family has had connections with each: The Knights of Malta, and P2. All these groups are Satanic and Masonic in beliefs and construct . Prescott Bush , George Herbert Walker Bush and George Walker Bush were/are all members of Skull and Bones.
1961
George Herbert Walker Bush connection to CIA and Oil Industry fronts established

Source: Mark Lane, Plausible Denial, CIA operative Maria Lorenz' testimony in Liberty Lobby vs. 
E. Howard Hunt. 
George Bush works for CIA as head of South American Assassinations during Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. Stationed in Houston under cover of the Zapata Oil company, believed to be a CIA front, he will forever be entrenched as iconic power player in the oil industry. Under his direction, Operation 40, aka in later evolutions as Operation Mongoose, responsible for the failed Bay of Pigs invasion, is undertaken against Fidel Castro. Bush, in turn, reported to Richard Helms. Eventually, both Helms and Bush would be rewarded for their parts in these matters with Directorship of Agency, Bush additionally becoming Vice President and then President.
1961 
DOD establishes domestic state sponsored terrorism plan: Operation Northwoods

Source: NSA expert, James Bamford, Body of Secrets
This is a "model" plan which can generically be applied to create public support for war with a targeted nation where no legal basis for war otherwise exists. The plan calls for terrorism attacks against the United States to be staged by the military and intelligence community. They specifically call for events such as have been seen in recent history: blowing up American warships while in harbor in foreign ports; hijacking and crashing US jetliners; blowing up American government buildings; shooting American citizens on the streets, and more. The plan is submitted to President Kennedy as a means of pre staging an invasion of Cuba but Kennedy rightly rebukes the plan, which had been signed off on by all five members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Later after the Bay of Pigs fiasco, Kennedy threatens to pull out of Vietnam, and threatens to disband the CIA. The entire Operation Northwoods document is available on the Professional Paranoid Reference CD-ROM. See a sample text, here.
1963
JFK assassinated by George Bush's Bay of Pigs team.

According to sworn testimony by CIA operative Marita Lorenz, and as supported by additional materials uncovered in the trial of Liberty Lobby vs. E. Howard Hunt. The same CIA agents and Cuban operatives who planned Operation Zapata (also the name of George Bush's CIA oil firm) were involved not only in the murder of JFK, but also were the principle players involved in Watergate, which was the political assassination of President Richard Nixon, who himself had played a key role in Bay of Pigs.
1960's
George Herbert Walker Bush connects with Saudi wealth, including bin Laden family

Photos - Osama bin Laden (AP), Prince Saud al Faisel (Reuters/Ali Jarekji), Kahled Mahfouz (tomflocco.com), Jackson Stephens (stephens.com)
Both the CIA and Oil industry ties enjoyed by the Bush clan would be applied to establish a long string of joint Bush-CIA-Saudi business relationships. This would involve Saudi funding of CIA proprietaries as well as partnerships with the Bush family businesses, often one in the same. It would likewise involve Bush and CIA involvements in Saudi firms, the most notable being the Royal Family's Aramco Oil company. Another notable joint investment is the Carlyle Group, which will be mentioned frequently in this work. The Saudi interests would repeatedly involve three separate Saudi families, the most powerful and wealthy of the Arab power elite: The Mahfaouz family, The Saudi Royal Family, and the bin Laden family - all three families having very close business ties, if not blood or marriage ties. These cozy Saudi and CIA relationships would later be mirrored by George Walker Bush in his business evolutions, as will be described herein. In sum total, these relationships would include CIA airlines, involve Iran-Contra, the BCCI scandal, and much more -- CIA ventures frequently involving Bush, Stephen Jackson, and/or their resources. 
1968
Osama's father, Sheik Mohammed bin Laden is killed in a mysterious airplane crash

Source: BBC biographical data 
The bulk of his wealth and power passes to Sheik Salem bin Laden, brother  to Osama bin Laden (and 53 other brothers and sisters.) The question is raised, but never answered: did CIA engineer the crash in a conspiracy favoring Salem, and could that be behind the very tight family relationships between the Bush and bin Ladens? 
1970's 
James Bath established as financial representative for elite Arabic families and Bush family. 

Source: Houston Chronicle series on Bush finances, 1992 
Bath, described generally as CIA operative, represents the interests of the Saudi Royal family, the Mahfouz family, and the bin Laden family in the US, chiefly to the Bush family. Note: the Mahfouz and bin Laden families are joined - one of Osama bin Laden's wives is the daughter of the Mahfouz patriarch. Virtually all such investments would seem to benefit CIA proprietaries, including those in Bush controlled firms. 
1970's (mid decade)
MIT educators discuss millimeter wave technology research on uninformed Islamic human guinea pigs. 

Source: conversation with former MIT faculty by this author while researching electronic weapons of political control technology.
For more information on voice to skull technology, see MC Realities
This small bit of intelligence hardly seems related to anything until we jump forward in time to the development of RAATS, described later in this time line. Millimeter wave technology lies behind the development of "voice to skull" technology, a CIA and military intelligence toy which can cause an unwitting victim to hear a voice in their head that no one else can hear. It is more commonly used to make both victims and law enforcement and medical professionals to think the that the targeted individuals are suffering schizophrenia. The MIT conversation takes on special significance only when the discussion involves a statement to the effect that "The military is selecting Islamic students for the project. This project involves non consensual subjects who will not know where the voice is coming from, or why. The question I ask, is WHY ISLAMIC VICTIMS? The answer may lie in the future... and the fact that in this time frame, most Islamic students in America are from the wealthy elite and ruling class of Arabic nations -- to include members of the bin Laden, Mahfouz, and Saudi Royal families.
1971 - 1984
Ali Mohamed becomes Egyptian Army Intelligence Officer and establishes himself with terrorist groups

Source: see my special  review - BBC photo of Ali
Ali Mohamed is a Major in intelligence with an unusual combination of skills (fluent in English, Arabic, Hebrew, and French, believed to be trained in psychological warfare, surveillance, explosives, parachute assault, and more) which would make him suitable as a spy or double agent. While serving in Egypt Ali is in a position to come  into contact with American CIA, military, and FBI operatives as well as al Jihad terrorists in Egypt who will assassinate Anwar Sadat. Evidence is that he was a double agent working within al Jihad. He will also be in a position to participate in Operation Bright Star, a joint US-Egyptian war game which will be mentioned several times in this time line. Of more importance is that Ali  is sent to the John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center at Ft. Bragg, where he trains along side of Green Beret and Delta Force units in special operations tactics expertise which will be useful later. It is possible that Ali has already been recruited by CIA.
1976
Trust Agreement for George Herbert Walker Bush protects and insures his Arabic/CIA investments.

James Bath is given 'blind trust' control of the new CIA Director's business ventures in accordance with government policy regarding office holders. However, since Bath is CIA, this is an illegal back door arrangement. Trusts are supposed to be "blind" and not subservient with or tied to the office holder in any way that allows direct or indirect control or knowledge. James A. Bake of baker and Botts is the family lawyer.
1979
Bath and bin Ladens and other wealthy Saudi invest in George Walker Bush's Arbusto Energy

Source: Houston Chronicle series on Bush finances, 1992. Photo (AP)
Arbusto is suspected of retaining CIA ties passed on from Zapata oil. Arbusto (Spanish for Bush) is a financial bust, but don't worry. They can fix it with more money from Arabs needing White House favors... It will eventually become part of the World's largest oil distribution network.
1979
Soviets invade Afghanistan -- Defense Department establishes completely autonomous secret covert Afghanistan intelligence organization code named Grey Fox.

Book cover Taliban, Ahmed Rashid
The significance of this event will not be realized for some time. Out of Grey Fox will come many of the players in 911 history, both in terms of persons and in terms of whole organizations. Speculation of the meaning of the code name may be found in the role of Osama bin Laden, who is neither black or white when first created as a person of interest in media. Grey Fox would operate in Afghanistan along side of CIA. The organizational changes which spawned Grey Fox involved creation of the same DOD command (RDJTF - Rapid Deployment Joint Task Force) under General P. X. Kelley which became the spearhead for Desert Storm and the War in Afghanistan, via Colin Powell, and Norman Schwarzkoph. Kelley, who would have overseen Grey Fox, seems to have vague ties to CIA perhaps best expressed by his affiliation with CIA enmeshed Wackenhut once he became a civilian. Kelly was also in the spheres of influance of both Donald Rumsfeld and George Bush in the 79 time frame, who would soon become CIA Director.
1979
Mr. Z is established as CIA operative within Afghanistan elite

Source to be revealed.
I arbitrarily choose to use Mr. Z instead of the individual's name for several reasons: For one, it appropriately rhymes with "mystery";  for another, a key dramatic point which underscores the conspiratorial and clandestine nature of events will be better made by revealing his identity later in the time line. Mr. Z is a pivotal and driving force behind these matters, a matter first apparent in the remarkable fast track to fame and power enjoyed by him. In 1979, the Soviets invaded Afghanistan and CIA needed a liaison between their efforts to aid the Mujahedin in that war. 

They selected Mr. Z, who was at the time a member of an elite Afghani family associated with the former King of Afghanistan. Attending college at the University of Beirut and in the US to obtain a doctorate in political science, he was given US citizenship and thrust directly into the White House, State Department, and Department of Defense as a "Special Advisor to the State Department" under President Reagan. He worked there directly with George Bush and the CIA to help establish CIA's covert funding and arming of the Mujahedin.

1979 - 1986 
Osama bin Laden joins Mujahedin, works with CIA

Source: BBC biographical data 
Osama receives CIA "security training" and other helps for the Mujahadine effort in Afghanistan. Such training is not for combatants (that training was also provided), but for "intelligence operatives." 
1980's 
BCCI bank is set up as money laundering entity by efforts of CIA and partners, acts as conduit for funds which rescue Arbusto


Source: False Profits by Peter Truell and Larry Gurwin.
BCCI is principally an Arabic operation involving the Mahfouz family and representatives of the other elite Arabic, Pakistani and other Middle Eastern families close to CIA operations abroad, as well as of the American and Pakistani intelligence agencies. This includes efforts of George Bush's Bay of Pigs cohort, Richard Helms, as well as James Bath, and Jackson Stephens, a long time Bush family friend and political ally. The bank will be used to launder money on behalf of CIA and CIA drug smugling, CIA mob partners, CIA sponsored Iran Contra operations for Oliver North, and Osama bin Laden, CIA client arms smugglers, and CIA backed dictators. A SERIES OF SUPPORT ORGANIZATIONS TO FACILITATE TRANSFERS is also established by CIA at the same time. Money is routed through BCCI conduits for investment in Arbusto, which is renamed Harken Energy. George Bush is active in the background.
1980
Mr. HK is established as CIA operative in Afghanistan

Source to be revealed.
I arbitrarily use initials here to conceal the identity of the man until revealing it will be more dramatic and make more clear the pattern of CIA manipulations of American foreign policy.  Mr. HK is a leader of one of the Afghani Mujahadine tribes, one of the stronger leaders in the war effort - much stronger than Osama bin Laden. Like Osama, he receives special training and a steady stream of war supplies from CIA. He personally knew CIA director William Casey and Vice President (at the time) George Bush. 
1981
Ali Mohamed enters US for special military training 

Source:  see my special review  Photo (US Army)
Shortly after asassination of Anwar Sadat, Egypt's head of state and key to President Carter's hard won Middle East Peace Accords, Mohamed is sent to Ft. Bragg's Special forces Officer's School as part of an international training program operated by the DOD. He graduates from the JFK Special Warfare Center and returns to Egypt. This time line will offer evidence which suggests his training involved more than stated - that Mohamed was a double agent working for United States military intelligence. The first clue is that his costly special training is not put to much use in Egypt - he soon quits the military there, and returns to the US to become a citizen. See 016c
1983-1988
Iran contra conduit operates through Dutch Resources with terrorist helpers

Source:Virtual Truth Commission
CIA, fond of establishing air-operations for fun and profit, works closely with Oliver North and General Richard Secord to establish illegal arms shipments to Iran using proprietaries established on Dutch soil. Dutch laws are particularly lax when Dutch nationals are involved in Dutch firms doing business overseas, which makes it a perfect spot to set up an air operations. Such operations typically take on the appearance of an air transport, air maintenance, or air training facility - more commonly all  of the above. Regardless, it will need some local Dutch born cut outs to 'own' the companies. By 1986, CIA was working in Holland with terrorist arms dealer Manzer Al-Kassar. Remember this when we start talking about the terrorist flight schools in Florida, both of which were started by Dutch nationals who seem to be tied to Iran Contra and CIA affairs. BCCI handles the money.
1984  Oct.
CIA  cuts deal with Pakistan ISI that involves control of Afghanistan opium trade

Source: Center for Research on Globalisation; Michel Chossudovsky
Professor of Economics, University of Ottawa
In exchange for help in arming and training  Afghani resistance fighters, Pakistan's CIA (ISI) is given a lucrative (multi billion dollar) import/export partnership agreement for Afghani produced drugs. This provides unprescedented power and wealth only as long as cooperation between CIA, ISI, and Mujahideen (Osama bin Laden) is workable. BCCI handles the money. Opioum output increases 400% during the war years. By 1999, the United Nations official findings are ISI is taking in $2.5 billion a year in illicit drug money.
1984 through 1994
CIA initiates indoctrination of future terrorists in Afghanistan through textbooks

Washington Post, 3/23/02, CBC, 5/6/02 
Under the Reagan/Bush and Bush administrations CIA's USAID has the University of Nebraska create and print millions of 'special' textbooks for Afghan school children. Given  to an eager and poor schoolsystem in the guise of charity to aid children, they are filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings. Math illustrations are made with tanks, missiles and land mines.  These books were promoted and used right up to 2002, when...  George Bush, ignoring his father's own complicity, ordered less violent versions stating "respect for human dignity, instead of indoctrinating students with fanaticism and bigotry."  The University of Nebraska will later recieve $1M from Unocal to train Afghani for pipeline construction. Other Unocal money will be used to teach English to Islamic 200 Islamic students at U of N , all of whom simultaneously take paramilitary training which includes nightime parachute courses.
1984
Ali Mohamed quits Egypt military and looks for 'employment' - officially establishes role as double agent

Source:  see my special review
Mohamed first goes to work for EgyptAir as a counterterrorism security expert. This is interesting because it likely gave him access to EgyptAir flight officer rosters and may have been related to any subsequent use of RAATS technology on the copilot of EgyptAir Flight 990 (see time line 009.)  After a short stint at EgyptAir, he establishes a relationship with CIA as 'informant 'on Middle East terrorist group activities - according to Larry Johnson, former CIA staffer and Deputy Director at the State Department's Office of Counter Terrorism, who described him as him a 'double agent.' 
1984
Ali Mohamed is 'fired' by CIA to establish plausible denial - continues to work with CIA and/or other US intelligence groups

Source:  see my special review
Ali is somewhat publicly released from CIA and is allegedly put on a watch list as being untrustworthy - after only 30 days. Though he provided information on a new german cell of Hezbollah, he apparantly revealed to that group that he was also working for CIA. Doing so would perfectly fit the role of a double agent, and as he was not killed, it seems likely that his role was accepted by the other side - which should have made him very attractive to CIA. His termination itself serves to strengthen his image as double agent. What happens next demonstrates his termination was staged. CIA, instead of putting him on a watch list, obtains a special VISA for entry into the US through CIA's Clandestine Operations Group. In truth, no Federal Agency was advised to watch out for Ali, at all.
1986 - 1989
Ali Mohamed returns to US - joins US military intelligence

Source:  see my special review
Though he held the rank of Major in the Egyptian Army, Mohamed joins in the US Army as an enlisted man - which is also quite a departure from the alternative of terrorist informant. Unlike normal trainees, he is immediately promoted to Sergeant and is assigned to Special Operations at Fort Bragg with a Secret clearance, eventually becomming an instructor at the JFK SWTC. These are the first solid indicators (there will be more) that he has been working for US intelligence all along: placement at the same camp and duty section as he had attended before is like getting struck by lightening; a meteoric rise in rank is common for intelligence operatives; foreign national military members who are recent citizen converts are not readily granted security clearances unless there is a reason.  The best clue may be this: his Commander, Lt. Col. Robert Anderson, was personally convincedthat Mohamed was an operative of U.S intelligence, presumed to be CIA. While at Ft. Bragg, Ali will be assigned to Operation Bright Star under mysterious circumstances and with mysterious outcome. He will also trip Army Intilligence tripwires twice for illegally going to Afghanistan to fight Soviet s along side of Mujahadine (where he is thought to have first met Osama bin laden). However, Army Intelligence takes no actions whatsoever. Ali is known  to have contacted the Army's CIA Liason Officer while at Ft. Bragg, as well, and in the same time frame, he went directly to CIA fronts operating in support of the Mujahadine in New York. There he met, befriended, and helped set up and train the terrorist cell which bombed the WTC in 1993.
1987 - 1988
The bin Ladens and other wealthy Saudi again invest in Bush's failing firm.

Source: False Profits by Peter Truell and Larry Gurwin 
Arbusto is reborn as Harken Energy, now even more suspiciously looking like a CIA enmeshed operation. This money comes through BCCI and CIA conduits, and is soon followed by some fantastic financial windfalls, again thanks to special ties with the Arabic elite. The struggling Harkin will undergo a number of evolutions, takeovers, and acquisitions until it is the world's largest gasoline distribution network by the end of 2002.
1988
Osama bin Laden forms Al Qaeda (Translates as "The Base")

It is not a terrorist group, yet.
1988
Almost exactly 20 years after his father's death by air crash, Sheik Salem bin Ladin is also killed in a mysterious airplane crash

Source: PBS news archives 
This crash is in Texas, after he, the brother of Osama, visited with the Bush family, presumably regarding oil deals. The question is raised, but never answered: did someone engineer the crash because a deal could not be reached? Could the deal have involved creating a new 'terrorist' personna for Osama bin Laden in future events? The bulk of the Wealth and power of the bin Ladens is now passed on to a mere handful of the many heirs, but Osama inherits a sizable fortune as well as interests in the businesses being run by the other brothers. The annual income stream alone would make Donald Trump envious.
1988 late
Ali Mohammed, while still in US Army, goes to Afghanistan to fight Soviets

Source:  see introduction
Mohamed's commanding officer confirms that Ali, despite military regulations against it, went to Afghanistan on leave where he fought the Soviets along side of Islamic fundamentalists, returning with souvenirs taken from killed Russian troops. Offical requests to investigate him were ignored by Army Intelligence, and as result, was no formal action taken against him. This further illustrates his "anointed" status as a intelligence operative. It is here where experts agree Ali likely first met Osama Bin Laden.
1989
Someone shifts gears and key people change positions and relationships
Something happened in 1989 - a milestone was reached, or a key event took place:  The Berlin Wall fell and Boris Yeltzin was elected to head the Soviet Union on their way to the communist regimes fall from power. This freed up US intelligence and military resources and signaled a scramble for assets a strong Soviet state would normally protect: Caspian and Middle East oil resources. Thus, 'phase two' could begin.

US military openly embraces "Revolution in Military Affairs", sees citizens as next enemy

Source: Suggest my own Proparanoid Newsletter free sample issue on political control technology, or my book, MC Realities
RMA is a  broad term but overly concerns itself with the notion that the military must prepare for a war with American patriots, survivalists, constitutionalists, militiamen, retired military, and the religious right. It responds by putting a lot of energy into weapons of political control technology which can only be described as Orwellian and draconic in nature - pure military-police state weapons which include mind control technology. Very active in this effort are DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) and the ANSWER Institute, a military-intelligence think tank essentially CIA led. 

Their handiwork includes HAARP and Command Solo, which have the earmarks of outright mind control projects, not to mention RAATS. Out of this environment comes the infamous "Shoot Americans" questionnaire given to military personnel, which also asks if soldiers would be willing to swear allegiance to the United Nations if the President abdicates power to the UN. Why would the military think you and I are going to be their enemy in the future? What do they know about the future that they are not telling? What actions are they taking now which insures that future? Could it have anything to do with Operation Northwoods?

Ali Mohamed implicated in WTC terrorist group training and planning after police investigate one of the terrorists for murder of a Jewish Rabbi

Source:  see my special review
The significance is that FBI was brought into the matter because of the terrorist angle, and the results of that were telling:  FBI took no actions against Ali or any of the terrorists, suggesting complicity and foreknowledge of Ali's double agent role. Further, they kept all such evidence out of the courtroom in the murder case, though it was good enough to use in the WTC trials some years later. The nature of the evidence involved several top secret and classified documents and videos from Ft. Bragg, including some dealing with Operation Bright Star. They also involved plans on how to destroy skyscrapers described as 'pillars of (our) civilization.' Ali Mohamed was clearly implicated by these materials as source of classified materials, trainer in explosives, surveillance, and other skills, and as taking part in planning sessions. Yet FBI ignored this?

The Bahrain government had already expressed favoritism for their traditional exploration partner, the huge Amoco Oil firm well equipped for ocean exploration, presumably through contracts with CIA's Global Marine; Harken had absolutely no experience or assets related to exploration, being a tiny land drilling operation of no notable success. Again, BCCI and Arabic players in that scandal, and additional CIA interests, were involved. But most key was retired Mobil Oil executive, Mike Ameen, who was working under the Bush administration as consultant to the US ambassador to Bahrain. It was he who put Harken's name into the hat. All concerned insist the deal has nothing to do with the fact that the Bush family is White House power.

George Walker Bush becomes stockholder and serves on Board of Directors of Caterair, employs 911 terrorist

Caterair, a Carlyle Company, would be extremely well placed to serve CIA interests, especially were CIA interested in smuggling large quantities of drugs into the country on aircraft that happened to serve meals in flight - or more to the point, interested in finding ways to smuggle things on and off of airliners, such as terrorists or box cutters? Guess who else gets a job at Caterair while Bush is there? A name scrawled on a note found in the car of one of the 911 hijackers is traced to an Islamic airport security guard suspected of aiding the terrorists in their plans, and who worked for Caterair at the same time George Bush sat on the firm's Board. The note was with a carton containing box cutters and cockpit pictures. 

The suspect is still in "custody as a material witness" Of course, that simply means he can't tell what he knows about any possible connection between 911 and the now defunct Caterair. These facts may have nothing to do with 911 - the  question would be moot if there were not also significant indicators that perhaps the terrorists were NOT passengers as claimed by FBI. That is taken up elsewhere in the time line. But there could certainly be a relationship, one which would allow the smuggling of terrorists, devices, or weapons onto American Airlines flights: Caterair was absorbed by Sky Chefs and their conglomarate holding company which undertook an exclusive10-year world-wide contract to service all American Airlines flights in 1992 - While George Bush was with Caterair. Sky Chefs was not only the food handling service for American Airlines, but also, for United Airlines. Thus all four 911 flights were serviced by a firm which had hired one of the 911 terrorists .

Palestinian Talat Othman and a group of Arabs meet with George Bush and his National Security Adviser three times in 1990, including one two days after the invasion. Othman is a member of the Board of Directors of Jr. Bush's own Harken Energy (established with the help of Jackson Stephens.) Of course, Bush sold his shares in Harken just the month before the invasion, pocketing $848,000 before oil industry stock fell dramatically because of the invasion - leaving his investors with 45 cents on the dollar. In violation of SEC laws, Bush does not report the sale for eight months - the purchaser is never disclosed. 

Harken apparently enjoyed the unusual and creative talents for fraud of Arthur Andersen, who apparently let a few math errors slip with overvaluation of worth to the tune of nearly ten million dollars. Obviously, this was not a case of insider trading, or Enron style bookkeeping. We know this, because George Bush is an honest man, just like his father. Othman, on the other hand, is close buddies with the Mahfouz family, and the bin Ladens. He is also a member of the NWO think tank known as the Middle East Policy Council along side of a whole slew of Bush croneys who happen to be kingpins in the Carlyle Company.

Ali returns to Afghanistan and fights once more against the Russians, then helps Osama relocate from Afghanistan/Pakistan to the Sudan. He is then sent to Kenya where he establishes a new terrorist cell which he trains and provides with cover operations (fronts.) This group will be sent to Somalia and will be responsible for the deaths of US Marines in the battle which is the basis for the motion picture, Blackhawk Down. Finally, he organizes a meeting between the top three terrorist organizations in the world and strikes an accord between them: 

Ali Mohamed's al Jihad from Egypt joins with Hezbollah backed by Iran with Osama bin Laden to form what we now call al Qaeda. As a double agent, he acts more like agent provocateur establishing the power base of terrorism (al Qaeda literally means 'the base'.) He passes up an opportunity to get the top terrorists in a single action. If a double agent, this is proof positive that the US government is empowering terrorism as a puppet partner rather than fighting it as an enemy. In this act, he also turns over his own NY area cell who will soon attack the WTC, giving Osama bin Laden his first active US terrorist cell.

Yet one of the authors will subsequently write 'Targets such as the World Trade Center not only provide the requisite casualties but, because of their symbolic nature, provide more bang for the buck. In order to maximize their odds for success, terrorist groups will likely consider mounting multiple, simultaneous operations with the aim of overtaxing a government's ability to respond, as well as demonstrating professionalism and reach.' If this was not held back for use in a Northwoods scenario or censored because someone knew it was to be used, then at the very least the government was clearly aware of the dangers of a 911 style attack and did nothing to prevent it.

Two questions: Why would an assassination attempt against Osama bin Laden fail to make the news? Why would America's top undercover double agent be assigned to protect him - and do such a great job when there is a bounty on his head in virtually every quarter? Answer: CIA and the US government does not really want to get bin Laden, but they did want to get better control of him. A botched (deliberately, perhaps) assassination gives Ali an opportunity to be promoted to a position of influance. If so, Osama is now under the influance of two persons capable of mind control methods.

This is a strong indicator Ali is sanctioned, blessed, operated by, and a double agent for the FBI, if not CIA and/or Army. The evidence recovered from the murder of the Jewish Rabbi clearly showed Ali had been instrumental in all elements of the WTC attack except execution, yet he was not even indicted. The FBI even admited in court it had a secret informant who it never introduced - an inside agent who even provided video of terrorist meets before 911, and in agent provocateur style, trained and helped terrorists plan the attacks and make explosives. So I must ask why FBI allowed the blast to take place in the first place if they had that level of intelligence? The answer is political control through repressive ligislation beneficial to FBI powers which resulted immediately after the blast - it had already been written. Further, I ask why the FBI at first acted as if they did not know who carried out the attack or how, spending a great deal of public relations to show how hard they were investigating the matter.  In fact, it was only by the means of magically obtaining the serial number of the axel of the truck used to house the bomb that they 'caught' the terrorists. This only makes sense if they were covering up their own Northwoods-like culpability.

Remember that Ali and al-Zawahiri have been identified as psychologists adept in manipulating the mind using intelligence community methods. Remember that al-Zawahiri is one of Osama bin Laden's top aids, and his personal physician. In 1995, Ali would host and manage a visit and tour of the United States by al-Zawahiri in order to raise funds for bin Laden's organization through the guise of charity donations. Money from this trip would be used to fund the bombing of the Egyptian Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan later in the year, killing 17 persons. The US has all along been aware of al-Zawahiri's role and importance with respect to bin Laden. It is inconceivable that the American intelligence community would not be aware of and disinterested in his visit to the United States - at a time the WTC bombing trial is taking place. It is even more inconceivable that they would not take an interest in anyone helping him, and in keeping track of the money they raised in any such visit. Yet it is clear that al-Zawahiri and Ali Mohamed have a truely magical mystery tour, one without so much as a "What's up Doc?" by US intelligence. This is a strong indicator Ali is a double agent, and perhaps al-Zawahiri, too.

I maintain OKC was undertaken by the US military to prove to Al Qaeda that we would allow them to conduct terrorism in the US because it benefited an Operation Northwoods type plan. By having some of their operatives peripherally involved but simultaneously protecting them in any subsequent investigation, a mutual trust is assured. If nothing else, such trust is gained by means of a blackmail insurance policy whereby the other party can demonstrate your own criminality. These kinds of "self mutilation" operations are not uncommon in the world of covert operations involving otherwise unlikely bed partners.

Osam bin Laden repeatedly uses CIA provided satellite phone to make calls -- calls are monitored but not used to locate and get bin Laden

Source: Sunday Times
O.J. Simpson was located by cell phone by local law enforcement... so why did CIA not use the tech to locate bin Laden? In fact, Osama stopped using the phone once he realized it could so be used -- after CIA passed up the chance. Bin Laden's calls completely identify a world-wide network of agents world wide -- 260 calls to Great Britain, 200+ to Yemen, 131 to the Sudan, 106 to Iran, 67 to Azerbaijan, 59 to Pakistan, 57 to Saudi Arabia, and 88 to other countries including the US. -- but CIA also does not go after them, either. Why? 

Also of importance in this matter is the fact that not one phone call goes to Iraq -- Iraq remains very carefull to avoid linkages with terrorism. Some other pretext for war with Iraq must be employed. News reports indicate the phone was given to Osama by 'a friend', but because complete intelligence is indicated on use of the phone, it seems clear the phone was 'hot' at the outset, which means the freind was a CIA operative -- perhaps Ali Mohamed. Regardless, if CIA can plant a phone in Osama bin Laden's hands, why can't they get him? Because they do not want to, despite President Clinton's orders

In response to the US proposal, the Sudanese Minister said "We said he will go to Afghanistan, and they (US officials) said, "Let him."î 

Amazing how effective the intelligence community and State Department can be when they are trying to get a terrorist, isn't it? But I suspect that only applies to a Bush Administration... In addition to this refusal, for the second time (see  ), the SU also refuses to accept Sudan's massive intelligence files on bin Laden and hundreds of his operatives. The Sudan next tries to give the files to Brittish MI6, but they also refuse. No one wants bin Laden caught -- at least no one who will profit by joining in the war effort against the oil countries.

The move in starts in Feb., 2001 and was expected to be completed by Fall, but by Nov 11, the Wedge struck by Flight 77 is still essentially empty. Why? The whole project AND the time lines make sense in light of an Operation Northwoods scenario.

He then describes the Caspian oil reserves as the key to control of all of Eurasia.?US global primacy depends on control of the Caspian.?He then laments that this goal cannot be met "except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat." So, if you are the US and you want control of the region, you must manufacture or sponsor that threat and market it for maximum effect -- ala Operation Northwoods. Brzezinski is not only a member of teh Council on Foerign Relations, but he contributes significantly to its direction, having worked closely with its founding leaders, the Rockefeller's, et al, and being a  Trustee of the CFR's policy think tank, the Center for Strategic and International Studies. When he talks, people listen. The question is, did they decide to foment terrorism in order to take advantage of his strategic plan for world domination?

The actual compound, like the anthrax used against Dashle, comes ONLY from a U.S. military research facitliy. Also, as in the dashle case, a word is used and misspelled identically in the accompanying message: 'penacilin'.  What is remarkable about this event is that FBI never investigates the matter? That might make sense if the attack was meant as a warning frohe US intelence community to the Israeli -- lay off with the 200 man spy ring  targeting US terrorists and their military-intelligence contacts.

This group is founded by an interesting cadre of people, all of whom have played an important role in this time line: Richard Perle, a George W Bush "thinker," architect of the 'total war' concept; future Vice President and former Secretary of Defense, Dick Cheney; Donald Rumsfeld; Paul Wolfowitz, Lewis Libby, Cheney's chief of staff, CIA super lawyer William J Bennett, Reagan's education secretary, and MR. Z. Even Jeb Bush and Dan Qayle are members, along with some very powerful people from media and defense contractors. PNAC recommended a number of policies which the Bush Adminstration has readily adipted and pushed through: an increase in arms-spending by $48b in support of multiple front wars; development of "bunker-buster" nuclear weapons; to make "star wars" a national priority; the targeting of Iraq and other Islamic states in the guise of combating terrorism. Pilger writes:As for Iraq's alleged 'weapons of mass destruction', these were dismissed, in so many words, as a convenient excuse, which it is. "While the unresolved conflict with Iraq provides the immediate justification," it says, "the need for a substantial American force presence in the Gulf transcends the issue of the regime of Saddam Hussein."

Source: Senate Intelligence Committee document
The report is discounted for several reasons, one being that the terrorists are not actually al Qaeda -- but it later turns out, they are. In fact, subsequent investigations reveal this was the time frame when al-Qaeda planned the 911 attack.  FBI will claim that this report was thouroughly investigated by 'many agencies' which is curious given that CIA has not passed anything along to FBI. Why thiis one?  Perhaps so that it couldeasily dismissed on the surface and then used after 911 to embarass FBI into a cooperative spirit with respect to any 'earnest' investigation into 911. A similar ploy was used in the JFK assassination by linking Oswald to FBI payroll, causing J. Edgar Hoover to perform poorly in the subsequent investigation.

1998 Aug 7 - 
Four US Embassies (Kenya, Nairobi, Tanzania, and Dar es Salaam) are bombed by Al Qaeda with help of Ali Mohamed. Mohamed and others are arrested and pleads guilty at a pretrial hearing. Many mysteries abound.

Source: see my special review
On Aug. 7 of 1998, two trucks filled with explosives drove to the exact spots where Ali Mohamed and Osama bin Laden had planed, and took out the two US embassies, leaving 224 dead and nearly 5,000 nearby local citizens injured. The day after the bombing, FBI obtained a special secret warrant from a secret Federal Judge under FISA, the Federal Surveillance Intelligence Act, and visited Ali's home in California. There they found more training manuals of the sort found almost a decade earlier. This is all-too convenient, just the sort of thing a double agent would leave behind for FBI to "find" in order to justify extraction if and when needed, for any reason. A real terrorist would not leave such clues lying about in such an obvious place. 

But I will not rank this as an indicator, here -- better ones await. So they called Ali at his current location in Kenya, where he was working for Osama in the planning of yet another attack. Just as they had done in 1994, they asked if he could return to the US to answer some questions. Just as in 1994, Ali happily obliged, an act already described as more double agent like than terrorist like. You don't just walk into the jaws of an enemy who might suspect you for crimes for which you know you are guilty. But Ali did, twice.  Ali admitted to the FBI  he knew who was involved in the bombing but refused to name names (official version of the story.) This makes no sense, either. Why would a terrorist as smart in the ways of intelligence and law be so foolish. Any such statement would only lead to trouble. It did:

He was prevented from leaving the US and was, by May of 1999, giving testimony before a Grand Jury. He admitted nothing useful in open court.-- but lied to the Grand Jury over some unstated but verifiable matter. That should have been a trivial matter, but it would be leveraged into something else. Ali was charged along with 16 others charged with the Embassy bombings in 2000.

Source: BBC
The document examines the workability of using anthrax by mail as a weapon, and involves the same people who ultimately were tied to the actual military-grade anthrax used against Dashel and others after 911. It is also the same anthrax strain given over to CIA for delivery to various research laboratories, including one in England. That is interesting because other reports on anthrax attacks on news resources in Florida have connections to Brittains. The British speculate (using American experts) that the attacks were a CIA project that got out of hand.

Five Saudi billionairs and several Islamic banks are involved. While the Saudi Government places Mahfouz under house arrest, the US seems to take no notice, does not ask Saudi for documentation which would have led to Islamic charities and other fronts, nor does it seek to freeze the funds involved at the time.  Mahfouz soon enters the hospital with a serious illness and the house arrest is lifted.

Exactly two years PRIOR to the 911 attack, CIA/military intelligence think tank begins work on Homeland Security


Source: my research into the Anser Institute, documented in article in The Professional Paranoid Newsletter, Vol 3, Issue 3.
Understand the significance in the actions of the folks behind Homeland Security, the Anser Institute. Not only did someone start working on Homeland Security as a department and policy before it was needed, but they started two years TO THE DAY before the attack that would allow government to introduce the concept, policy, and department. It is almost as if someone had asked, "How long will it take to set this up?" and gotten the answer "I'd say two years," and then responded, "Great. Two years would make it Sept. 11, 1999. Start it then..." 

If this notion seems oblique. Ask yourself this:  When the OKC blast happened... when 911 happened... in both instances, how was it that specific "antiterrorism" legislation (which reduced civil liberties and could be described as more draconian police-state enforcement than antiterrorism) just "happened" to have been already written and needed only to be introduced on the floor of the House and Senate for discussion and voting?  This is what is meant by "prior knowledge." SOMEONE in government knows EXACTLY what will happen, and when, and is using that to create public policy and law IN ADVANCE as response. Operation Northwoods in action. Further, it is not even WHEN as much as WHO: Top CIA and military intelligence people, to include scientists involved in political control technology (non lethal weapons and electronic mind control technology) such as RAATS -- not to mention Global Hawk. I'm sure all those toys are being designed to combat terrorism.  See next

While this illustrates Pakistan is not an ally, I believe the story is a plant to be used as an excuse for CIA failures, and possibly, for later use to justify actions against Pakistan to include war based on support of terrorism: a) CIA does not need ISI for such a mission because it already has its own operatives in place;b) Bob Woodward has been tied to the intelligence community; c) He was instrumental in the Watergate assassinion of President Nixon by George Bush's Bay of Pigs (JFK assassins) operatives; d) He himself fails to question the need for ISI participation due to preexistence of CIA operatives mentioned in his own article designed to showcase CIA participation in war on terrorism; e) The Washington Post is keystone of CIA's Project Mockingbird to infiltrate media and disinform America. Regardless, it is clear the reported facts contradict one another.

Egyptair Flight 990 is thrown into a dive into the Atlantic by a "praying copilot," killing all aboard


Source: assorted news (Time, ABC, etc.), Map (NTSB)
Was this a test of RAATS or Global hawk technology? Analysis of the Islamic "prayer" by some accounts almost sounds more like an answer to God than a prayer to Him, with a final "acceptance of his will" at the critical moment, repeated endlessly. That, and the fact that the Egyptian  copilot was in Egypt at the same time frame as the terrorist pilots of 911 leads us to ask if perhaps Egyptair 990 was not some form of test of "Voice of God" technology (RAATS) to see if a pilot could be forced to crash his plane thinking it was God's will. Keep in mind that RAATS can be injected into a victim without their knowledge. Further, Flight 990 went down almost immediately above very sophisticated military intelligence communications and research laboratories located on Long Island. Both RAATS and Global hawk would require sophisticated communications to work at a distance. The significance of this event lays in the fact that there was an unusually a large number of Egyptian military and intelligence officers on board Flight 990. Most of th ese were associated with Operation Bright Star, and may have been in a posiiton to put two and two together when the court records of Ali Mohamed's guilty plea was made public.

Boeing announces Air Force ability to 'wrap' avionics software with alternate functions without apparant changes

Source: Boeing Press Release
This illustrates the military is developing software techniques which allow modification of commercial aircraft avionics systems with new capabilities in a way which is transparant (and thus, if needed, undetectible.) If Global Hawk technology were installed on the 911 aircraft it would be imperative to enable their functions remotely without the pilots awareness of the modifications having been made. Technology such as described in this release would be imperative. This announcement comes just weeks after the mysterious crash of Egyptair Flight 990 which might have been a test of Global Hawk using this 'wrap' capability.

The cover story, once reported, is that the destruction was accidental, due to inadvertant capture of al Qaeda emails not authorized under the specific Carnivore warrant in use. In trying to delete the illegal capture, all email was accidentally destroyed. Two problems with this: a) FBI would not destroy such evidence, even if illegally obtained (it never has in the past) though it might not use the evidence in court; b) FBI denied in the same article that the destruction had taken place, contradicting its own explanation. Thus, we must ask what information was actually destroyed, and why? Could it have been related to 911 or implicated Federal or corporate conspirators in some way?

Hamburg Cell terrorist brags publicly that he will kill thousands in New York, specifically mentioning the WTC. This disproves government's claims that they could not know the date or target of the 911 attacks because the terrorists themselves did not know until hours beforehand. CIA ignores event

Marwan Alshehhi, one of the 911 hijackers, bragged to a librarian that, regarding the WTC, 'There will be thousands of dead. You will think of me... You will see, in America something is going to happen. There will be many people killed." Though there seems to be no public record indicating that this matter was reported to German or American authorities at the time, it still disproves US claims of poor intelligence about targets and dates. If the attackers themselves knew more than a year in advance, and were publicly bragging even a little, then intercepts of communications and surveillance should have provided enough clues to at least provide some needed details. Also - see next for even more blatant bragging and threats by Mohamed Atta.
2000 April - May
Mohamed Atta and fellow hijackers attempt to borrow money from a bank in Florida with ties to Jeb Bush. In the interviews, he makes chilling comments and threats in the form of questions. These again show the terrorists were not as careful and tight lipped as government claims.
Again, this does not result in useful intelligence at the time, being reported after 911. Again, however, it does show government claims of secrecy and hijackers being unawares of their targets are false. Moreover, it seems a flagrant attempt to get reported to FBI. Using his real name and identification, the questions included: a) Asking about security of the WTC and other landmarks; b) How she would like it if someone flew a plane into her friend's building; c) How would America like it if another country destroyed Washington; d) What would prevent him from cutting her throat and taking the money from the bank vault. Amid all this, he discusses both his association with and faith in al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden and his travels in the Middle East and Europe. 

He also tried to buy an aerial photograph of Washington, D.C. on her wall for increasingly large sumes of cash. Why would he need to borrow money ($65,000) in the first place - he has regularly gotten hundreds of thousands as neeed, will get $100,000 more in roughly 30 days from supporters in Pakistan (see   )? Why would he seek a loan from a bank to do it when he would clearly not be able to meet the minimum requirements for employment, residency, income, and prior credit history? Why did he utter such dangerous questions and comments?  I believe he was playing with the US intelligence community, taunting them, because he knew they would take no action to stop him. That is the big "Why?" of this whole matter. See June 2000 for Bush ties.

Saudi Royal Family arranges for trip to Afghanistan on Royal aircraft by Osama bin Laden's mother. They play two cards: a) She is given a message for Osama to lay off Saudi targets in exchange for no crackdown on his followers in Saudi Arabia; b) they offer CIA an opportunity to put a tracking device in her luggage. CIA turns down the offer, makes no attempt to track the aircraft or othewise take advantage.

source: New Yorker
Once it becomes public, the Saudi state the CIA did not take them seriously. The CIA claims the offer was void of details. But what details are needed? You give them a device frequency and you start monitoring it. It seems clear CIA was not interested in getting at bin Laden all along. Further, why did the Saudi ask for a device? Does Saudi Intelligence not own their own?  Perhaps this was a test of US seriousness to get bin Laden?  If so, the CIA was too stupid to see it and fell for the bait and gave the wrong answer. No one has ever found the Arabic mind to be inferior to the Western mind, well able to look ahead at enemy strategies, meanings, and likely moves.

Further, Sudan offers for the third time to share its volumous files on al Qaeda and bin Laden operatives while in Sudan, but the US again declines.

This again demonstrates getting bin Laden and destroying al Qaeda is not the goal. Why? It also reveals the deciet implicit in US foreign policy and public statements in that the Sudan is not given a clean bill of health. To do so would mean an appology was in order for the missile attacks in 1998.

Global Hawk flies from Florida (Eglin) to Portugal by operators in a trailer in Southwestern Va

Source: Washington Post
This demonstrates the capability of Global Hawk and its operational readiness well before 911 and within six months of Egyptair's mysterious Flight 990 crash . All news and military accounts of this test are unusually vague about the trailer in Virginia, perhaps because it may have been manned by CIA operatives. If so, perhaps it was training for missions on 911. That notion seems underscored by the fact that after 911, the military removed all Web pages referring to this flight, even those not mentioning the trailer (typical military overkill.) However, one remains cached, here.

Mohamed Atta gets $100,000 from Pakistan ISI Director General Mahmud Ahmad. The deal is exposed in Indian media and Ahmad resigns. The man who actually wired the funds for Ahmad is later tied to and convicted for the kidnapping and murder of Daniel Pearl in early 2002. 

Source: The Times of India
This illustrates how connected 911 is to Pakistan, the ISI, and to CIA, who has at every step worked with ISI and Ahmad to: a) establish a working three-way relationship with the Mujahadine; b) establish a three-way working relationship with the Taliban; c) establish a three-way working relationship (pre al Qaeda) with Osama bin Laden; d) and establish a three-way working relationship with drug smuggling operations out of Afghanistan. CIA is not going to invest that kind of effort and money (billions annually) on someone without keeping an eye on them and without sanctioning their every move. No one in that position would think otherwise, and would be extremely foolish to do something not in line with their master's wishes -- something so easily detected as to have a newsman in another country uncover it. 

MORE TO THE POINT - this shows that it was not Afghanistan and the Taliban (and perhaps not even Osama bin Laden) who were behind 911, but implies instead that it was Pakistan. Yet in the war on terrorism, the US, with full knowledge of these facts, elected to war with Afghanistan rather than Pakistan. Indeed, it is this one event which gave the US the needed blackmail leverage to force Pakistan to join the US in that war (for the oil) or itself be targeted. It probably will still be targeted at some point in the future when the US government decides it is appropriate to "remember" this event and others like it -- after the pipeline is built or underway, no doubt.

Governments response through disinformation is to debunk the claim as an urban legend in media. Yet if media had cared to check, they would have found it true -- the debunkers were eventually debunked when the names were found true. There is no known evidence that the FBI has investigated to see who registered these names. Note the date seems only somewhat finalized at this tim according to the names.

This makes no sense because FBI informants in such matters are generally held under a tight reign. FBI should have been well aware of what was going on, here -- but later claim that their informant had never even mentioned the men. Yet it is known that in one instance an FBI agent called Shaikh and was told he could not talk because Khalid was in the room. Someone is lying at FBI about something, for some reason. Why? Why did the hijackers unanimously make themselves so conspicuous -- contrary to all training and their own religious convictions?

Ali Mohamed pleads guilty to terrorism and avoids a trial which would lead to his intelligence community ties and role as a double agent, agent provocature

Source: Oct 24 pretrial hearing transcripts, see my special review
Ali Mohamed was charged along with 16 others charged with the Embassy bombings on this date. The list of codefendants include all of Osama's top organization as well as actual bombing participants, and Osama, himself. Of course, only four of the defendants were actually in custody beyond Ali (17.) In some respects, it was a show trial in favor of American foreign policy, as some of the participating lawyers so stated publicly (ibid.)

But the strangest thing is that Ali Mohamed, unlike his four associates, pled guilty. Why is this so strange?  Because terrorists benefit several ways from having trials, and a guilty plea insures there will be no such trial, and no such benefits. A trial gives the terrorist an opportunity to express their political cause publicly. Moreover, it forces the prosecution to reveal what it actually knows in order to gain a guilty plea. This, in turn, reveals intelligence gathering methods and, often, operatives involved in that effort. It can aid the terrorist organization in finding and killing (literally) information leaks and improving security methods. So while the others did their duty to their cause, Ali Mohamed, an acknowledged expert at such matters who even coached other terrorists in them, did not. Why? This is yet another indicator.

Could it be that he was CS-1, the double agent? His convenient stupidity in stating that he knew who did the bombing, followed by his convenient agreement to return to the US for questioning, followed by his convenient lies to the Grand Jury, allowed Ali to be arrested and made safe from reprisals. Please note that his arrest was kept secret for almost two years (1) before he was actually tried; his case was officially listed as "The United States vs. John Doe." Once this trial went to court, it would most surely reveal who CS-1 was, especially if CS-1 was actually one of the defendants. If Ali was a double agent, this move brings the spy in from the cold, a key indicator. But there is one more reason, one even more important...

By avoiding going to trial either as a witness for the prosecution or as defendant, Ali Mohamed also avoids having to reveal the full extent of his role... of CIA's role... of FBI's role... of the US Army's role in fomenting, supporting, aiding, and abetting of terrorism against the United States. CS-1 cannot be questioned in open court, and no specific evidences from within these agencies can be subpoenaed as result. Ali could have, and prosecution could have gone after him and his employers as a double agent. This is why these actions are not only indicators of Ali's double agent role, but of a Northwoods scenario.

Pentagon holds detailed emergency drills based on premis of hijacked airliner crashing into Pentagon.

Yet after 911, a Pentagon spokesman and all of government will claim there was no way they could have known such an event was possible. ìThe Pentagon was simply not aware that this aircraft was coming our way, and I doubt prior to Tuesday's event, anyone would have expected anything like that here." It is more serious than this. The planning for the drill involved a 3-D mockup of Pentagon and nearby skyscrapers -- but in only one quadrant - that used by the 911 plane to hit the Pentagon. Such modling would only be need if planning a specific attack, not planning for any given possible plane crash. See special report, here. (go to bottom)

911 Hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan Alshehhii fly a small plane from the Florida flight school to the Miami International Airport. Stalling out the engine on the tarmac taxiway, they simply abandon the plane, virtually guaranteed to force an FAA investigation of them and the school. It never happens. But the event may hold hidden clues...

This is an extremely serious matter. They disobeyed tower instructions, violated FAA rules and regulations, and forced passenger jets to taxi around the small plane until it could be towed away. The plane's ID was used to track them to the flight school, the matter threatening the entire training program and terrorist mission, not to mention the risk of having the flight school shut down. But someone apparantly put the skids on the investigation. Likely, a phone call was made, and that was the end of that. Who would have such juice within the Federal system? Because of other revelations in this time line involving Atta, the art students, Raytheon, and the flight schools,, I specualte the matter my represent a test of Global Hawk technology on his plane to demonstrate to his satisfaction that it worked.

Source: London Times 9/26/01
The significance of this item lies in the multiple ways it refutes FBI claims regarding what they knew or didn't know prior to 911, as well as the actual entry dates of the terrorists. It implyies multiple persons assuming the same identities at the same time - allowing them to be in two places at once. However, among those involved, one does not find the names of the ring leaders such as Mohammed Atta. But the most significant matter this reveals is that it puts a big question mark on the actual identities of the 911 hijackers. The British press has questioned the validity of FBI claims that the 19 named men were actually correct, given the false identities used and other issues such as raised elsewhere in this time line and on the NOILWAR! pages.

Source: San Antonio Express-News 9/22/01
It turns out that these men seem to have their identities reversed, and one of them is later claimed by FBI not to have been one of the terrorists, but a different Islamic with the same name - despite the fact that that person, alive and well in Saudi Arabia, can prove he was never in the US. All of these things combine to illustrate FBI cannot make a clear case for the identity of the hijackers, their known entry dates into the US, and whereabouts, as claimed.  But there is something more to this story in terms of relevance. The date of this event is after the Israeli art student spy ring had come under scrutiny by Federal agents, and before they were arrested. The location is one where the art students were active. My special report on the art student matter reveals a likelihood that the Israelis wanted the US intelligence community to discover what they were doing, in essence leading them to discover the terrorists and ties to flight schools, and possibly, Global Hawk facilities located in the same area. See the special report for details.

The ring is unusually focused on two primary but related targets: The US Military intelligence community AND Islamics suspected of terrorist ties - largely because of their relationships to each other. Since spy rings operate with a SINGLE mission, this inherently implies that there is a DIRECT RELATIONSHIP in the Israeli's mind between the terrorist and the US military-intelligence community. My special report reveals the ring may have deliberly tried to attract US attention to lead FBI to the terrists and expose their partnership with US resources.

Yet the government, after 911, will claim that key bin Laden messages were not decoded or even translated because analysts (a manpower-based, not computer based solution) were too swamped. This gives way to the slogan, "at CIA, we work harder, so our computers won't have to."

This revelation comes from General William Kernan, Commander in Chief of the Joint Forces Command, the military command structure responsible for coordinating air-sea-land forces in time of conflict. This, and other news revealed by Agence France-Presse in the coming months, such as Osama bin Laden's meet with CIA Station Chief in the American Hospital of Dubai just prior to 911, are just a few of the reasons France and much of Europe failed to sign on to the Bush oilwars. Ironically, many of the stories released in France came from news organs controlled by the Carlyle Group. This is not as odd as it seems, however, since the Bush-Laden infected firm would likely wish the Europeans to sit these wars out - to allow t he US to be the virtually lone gun in town to control Iraq's oil and the Afghanistan pipeline. Only Britain as an ally makes sense, since on of the other Carlyle biggies is John Major, former Prime Minister of Britain.

The paper reveals in its series that the military will accept a new mission to procure oil supplies by force of arms, including a blueprint for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Army War College, for instance, argues the legitimacy of "shooting in the Persian gulf on behalf of lower gas prices", and proposes a that such a conflict would need to be sold to the American people on some other basis or pretext (such as terrorism or weapons of mass destruction.) The Defense Policy Board, a civilian advisory panel (think tank) made up of defense contractors, ex military leaders, and Bush-Cheney cronies of the New World Order variety, advises for such wars and privately among its own members discusses selling of Iraqi oil franchises to the rest of the world. James Baker and the Council on Foreign Relations (NWO group) promote the idea of war for oil in a special report to Dick Cheney entitled Strategic Energy Policy Challenges For The 21st Century. This revelation alone is sufficient reason why other nations wanted nothing to do with the Bush oil wars. Of course, American media did not report these facts, thought the rest of the world was aware of it.

Though nothing concrete will seem to come from the effort (too little, too late), SCO's goal indicates their intelligence agencies were aware of US plans for Oilwars. Somewhere along the way, Colin Powell would find a way to convince the Russians to cooperate, breaking up the SCO's unity. 

As an aside, this did not apparently deter the Chinese, who had their own Caspian - South East Asia pipeline project on the table. Usually reliable intelligence (open) sources report a small contingent of half a million Chinese soldiers were positioning themselves on the border between China and Afghanistan just prior to hostilities, there, some advance reconnaissance operatives actually killed in early Coalition bombing. However, Bush visited China and worked some magic of his own with respect to Chinese-American relations, and China did not intervene, nor did anyone officially acknowledge their presence at the border. Thus it remains unverified.

More interesting, perhaps, is that these are also the same cities where the 200 Isreali art student spy ring operated, demonstrating they were on the trail of the 911 hijackers and were trying to lead FBI to discover what they knew - that the military industrial complex had forged an alliance with al-Qaeda.

This could only be true of an Operations Northwoods plot.

Multi jurisdictional Task Force shuts down 500 Islamic Web sites

The peculiar event led by FBI does not make the American News despite the implications with respect to Constitutional violations. Later, it is discovered the event is directly related to the events of 911, implying the government had prior knowledge to the attack. Shutting down the sites prior to the attack would have no effect on any such attack, but would prevent or hinder Arabic interests from communicating with each other after the attack and comparing notes - which might have made it possible to discover they (the greater Islamic community) were being set up as fall guys for an Operation Northwoods like crime -- and flee.

Series of stock trades to profit by 911 attacks take place using CIA money laundering conduits

Source: Michael Ruppert and Tom Flocco, From The Wilderness 
The laundering firms involved were started by and managed by top CIA officials who go back to BCCI and beyond, basking in the shadow of Jackson Stephen's handiwork in those matters. The trades involve stocks of the airlines involved, insurance companies covering the WTC, and stock market firms based in the WTC buildings. The money is absorbed by, and remains in these conduits to this day.

One possible reason: it allows unusual activities designed to control access to newsworthy items which might naturally evolve on the day of and in the aftermath of 911 -- given the ties of the alleged terrorists to air training schools in Florida and the presence of George Bush on that date. It may account for the C-130 used by Jeb Bush in those investigations, as described in the next section.

Pakistani military hospital treats Osama day before attack - US media suppreses story

Source: Reuters Wire Service
As in the American Hospitial of Dubai, Osama bin Laden was recieveing the best of medical care the very day prior to the attack - this time at a Pakistani military hospital, attended and gaurded by America's allies in the war against Afghanistan. As before, it was treatment for his kidneys.This shows complicity of the Pakistani government in the protection of Osama bin Laden, implied in the earlier Dubai hospital visit when Saudi jets secretly flew him from Pakistan to the American Hospital of Dubia for treatment. It also shows there is no reason to assume that Osama bin Laden was ever in Afghanistan subsequent to 911. His "filmed" interviews could have been taken anywhere. Since all of this was done for Osama by America's ally, and is knwon to the US but not protested, we must presume that it is being done with the blessings of the US Government - as illustrated by the CIA's blessings of the Dubai visit.

September 11 and Post 911 Events

2001 Sept 11
Pakistani General who is the head of Pakistani Intlligence (ISI) is visiting Washington D.C. on September 11 - having lunch with Senators

Source: Washington Post
General Mohamed Ahmed, as head of ISI, is extremely likely to already at be aware that the US is to have a war with Afghanistan over terrorism, and thus, that Osama bin Laden is the lynch pin. We must therefore ask just how concidental is it that a) He allows Osama bin Laden safe access to a Pakistani military hospital the day before the attack; b) he himself is in Washington on the day of the attack; c) he is lunching with two Florida Senators that day; d) he has personally profited handsomely from his relationship with CIA, Osama bin Laden, and the Opium franchise in Afghanistan. Likely, CIA insured he would be here that day in order to be in a position to blackmail Pakistan into fuller cooperation in the long term should their Islamic populatin balk at US military adventures in the region against Islamic nations. Indeed, immediately after this visit, Ahmed is arrested in Pakistan and thrwon into prison for his profiteering -- silencing him from telling of CIA's part in the entire matter from day one. In like manner, both Florida Senators will now be less likely to interested in a protest against any fishy smells from the White House.

Though he has privately confided in friends that he beleives that terrorists will once again attack the WTC to finish the job, he fearlessly accepts his responsibility and takes the elevator up to his offices, from whence he shall never return. Many view the arrangement for this job offer and his death as an orchestrated murder -- a means of getting rid of someone who knew too much, someone who, if alive after 911, would point fingers at George Bush.

Two hours before the WTC attacks, an Israeli firm located two blocks from the WTC towers gets an email warning specifically about the attack

Source: Yuval Dror,Ha'aretz Daily, Israel 
This indicates, as discussed earlier, the Israelis knew precisely the details of the attack, as well as who was behind them -- both through their spying upon US terrorists and their American military intelligence helpers and through monitoring of stock trades. We might ask why they would not warn the world, instead of only their own people. The only logical answer is that to do so would embarrass the White House and severely damage relations with the US... if in fact, the White House or US military or intelligence community was, in fact, involved in an Operation Northwoods event. Clearly, the Israeli understood the complete picture, thanks to the efforts of the 200 man spy ring DOJ elected to kick out of the country rather than prosecute for spying. Of course, the Israeli are getting some benefit from terrorism, too - the dismantling of Arafat's power base, and with it, Palestinian autonomy and sovereignty as result of the wave of suicide bombing.

40 minutes before the first plane hits the WTC, the National Reconaissance  Office (NRO - spy sattelite agency) begins  a scenario drill (war game) involving  a pasenger jet striking a building.

The NRO is a spy organization which rival's CIA in size which would seem to operate America's spy satellites. However, the agency and its huge facilities and staff were created after the end of the coldwar leaving many  to speculate they are really an agency designed to spy on Americans - as the name itself implies. CIA Officer John Fulton works at NRO as Chief of their Gaming Division. A National Law Enforcement and Security Institute document states "On the morning of Sept 11th, 2001, Mr. Fulton and his team were... were running a pre-planned simulation to explore the emergency response issues that would be created if a plane were to strike a building..." The operation had been planned for months.

Terrorist hijack planes, Air Defense Command is notified, but Air Force is ordered to stand down

Best single source for review: Award winning Canadian journalist,
William Thomas
Well documented in fragments, no news media has dared print the full story: FAA notification to Norad per established procedure was at 8:38 AM, and this should have immediately set into play preexisting orders to launch aircraft - set procedures which DO NOT REQUIRE PRESIDENTIAL DECISIONS, even to include the decision to shoot down an airliner, which can be made by Air Defense Command. The Miami Herald noted Sept 14 that 18 minutes later that fighter jets were scrambled from Otis AFB on Cape Code despite two other ready interceptor squadrons located closer.  The scrambled jets were still 70 miles away when the second tower was hit; The Cape Cod Times reported Sept. 16 these jets were capable of Mach 2 speeds but were ordered to stay below the speed of sound; The jet heading for Washington D.C. was reported on that course more than twenty minutes before jets were scrambled from nearby Langley another twenty minutes AFTER the jet struck the Pentagon (same source.) Two scrambled jets at Andrews AFB were not launched, held on the ground despite constant requests from pilots. The Andrews AFB 321st Fighter Incerceptor Squadron's Web site, which had boasted "24 hour round-the-clock ready-to-fly" capabilities and an "antiterrorism mission" was taken down on Sept. 12th.  Perhaps they were afraid someone would notice the problematic contradictions implied.

WTC and Pentagon attacked, Osama blamed immediately

Hours later, Osama bin Laden and 19 specific operatives are named as responsible by FBI. There are many problems with the speed, accuracy, and means of this revelation which suggest it was both a planned and staged Operation Northwoods style attack. Just a few of these are detailed in this time line. Many others are not, not the least of which is that miraculously, though not one iota of a shred of anything else from any person in the airplane that hit the towers or who was on the floors hit by the planes has been found, an entire Passport of one of the hijackers is found in the street beneath the dust and debris. Oddly, the same remarkable type of clue is used to identify Al Qaeda bombers in other terrorist attacks. How convenient that fate is so ironic and consistent. Apparently, someone thinks we will buy any magic bullet lie they can fabricate, time and time again.

footnote: Could The Voice of God (RAATS) or Global Hawk have caused or at least insured 911 missions were carried out? 

For more information, see MC Realities.
Shortly after 911 a wave of suicide bombings in Israel begin. As with 911, these have only negative repercussions for the political and social groups responsible for the terrorism. Only the Israeli benefit from the bombings, by taking more control of Palestinian territory and destroying the political power base of the "legitimate" Palestinian movements of Arafat. Not since the Japanese Kamikaze pilots of WWII have so many elected to kill themselves in "combat." The difference, however, is that a declared war existed in WWII and the Kamikaze knew they were loosing the war. Yet they elected to attack military units, those forces which directly threatened their national sovereignty. 

Terrorists, however, ignore military targets and attack only innocent civilians. Why, unless to benefit the one attacked?  In the US, the benefactor is the military industrial complex - which responded through the Bush administration with an endless draconian legislative responses which destroy civil liberties and support a military-police state. Most of these were already written and ready to be introduced to the Congressional floors. RAATS technology may lie behind this illogical and irrational wave of attacks which no sane person could otherwise rightfully sanction or commit. Global Hawk technology, on the other hand, needs no political context to argue its possible existence and use. As shown elsewhere in this time line, the opportunity and ability to employ it would seem to exist.

FBI and Jeb Bush seize all terrorist flight school records in Florida in nightime raid


Source: Investigative author Daniel Hopsicker, Madcowprod.com;
There are four remarkable points to this remarkable event. One - that all the records were quickly boxed up and put into Ryder trucks. The FBI does not use Ryder trucks. It has its own. Two - these two trucks were then driven aboard an unmarked C-130 aircraft. Driving the trucks aboard instead of transferring the boxes indicates there would be no official vehicles waiting at the other end of the flight to offload the cargo. Three - FBI is not known to own or operate, or lease, or need a military C-130 cargo plane. CIA does, and they are unmarked. Four - George Walker Bush's brother, Governor of Florida, was aboard the plane. Jeb Bush has no authority or purpose in an FBI raid, certainly not that portion of it involving transportation of documents. Something is very suspicious about this event. It MIGHT make sense if the flight schools were actually CIA proprietaries and/or could be traced somehow directly or indirectly to the Bush Empire of Crime In America, and that information needed to be sanitized prior to actually making records available to FBI. That Jeb Bush is personally involved is quite suggestive.

The most interesting part is who, where, and how: Who is a Saudi Prince, the son of Saudi Arabia's National Defense Minister, and the son of a Saudi Army commander, and their entourage. Investigative journalist William Thomas claims this included Abdullah bin Laden, son to Osama. BBC news, on 6 Nov, claims 11 bin Laden family members are present. This makes one thing clear. On the day of 911, these Arabs were in Florida at the same time as George Walker Bush, and likely, given their "hall pass" out of the country and high-level credentials as representatives of a foreign power, had been meeting secretly with Bush about something. Perhaps it was to watch live television coverage of 911? Recall that twice, George Bush stated publicly he watched the FIRST airplane crash into the WTC LIVE AS IT HAPPENED. Where, is they flew from out from the same airport that housed the two terrorist flight training schools. How, is by a Lear Jet directly associated with CIA proprietaries and one of the flight schools where the terrorists trained

FBI lists all 19 hijacker names, orders Airlines not to release hijacker names

Source: Results of this author's inquiries to FBI and the airlines
Because of the speed of the release of names, and comments by FBI, it would appear that the names were taken directly from the passenger lists, with some research and adjustment for alias' which may have been used in at least some instances. They implied as much in press statements. Some curious questions arise, but media asks them not: If FBI is releasing the names, why are the airlines forbidden by FBI to release the same names or even the alias' used?  Why does the FBI refuse to answer this simple question? Inherent in the silence and the question are the implications that the names may not appear on the manifest, at all. In such a case, then, we would have to ask how it was that FBI came up with the names so quickly? It also implies that perhaps there were no hijackers on board as passengers, at all. Perhaps the hijackers gained access in some other way, such as through food delivery (which is why George Bush and one of the hijacker's simultaneous employment at Caterair is a bit suspicious.) Note this took place AFTER the Arabs had safely left America with George Bush's "hall pass" described above.  Their hall pass might really be suspicious if after "We now know it was Islamic terrorists.".

They could not have kept secret an operation that required such a degree of organization and sophistication.'  Perhaps they had help from a major intelligence agency in their efforts... such as CIA and the US military?

He strongly doubts the position of the American government as to the complicity of Osama bin Laden (alone,) stating it would have taken "years of planning" and massive resources such as only possible with "STATE ORGANIZED ACTIONS". He does not identify the state, but his hash comments could easily be taken to imply domestic state sponsored terrorism. He wisely leaves open the possibility that Islamic nations might be involved, but does not demonstrate any faith in their skills and ability to do so.

Bush-Baker Caspian pipeline ties confirmed

The George Bush Administration clears the last remaining obstacles and the Caspian Pipeline Consortium begins operations. This is not the Afghanisan pipleline, but runs from the Caspien to Europe, funded and promoted by many of the same players as the Afghanistan pipeline. Though one of the largest pipeline ventures in the world, it is largely ignored by media in the US. Perhaps it is because the law firm representing the Consortium (BP and many American oil company partners) in the venture is Baker-Botts, the law firm of James A. Baker, Secretary of State under President George Herbert Walker Bush, and Secretary of the Treasury under George Walker Bush. His firm has traditionally also been the law firm for the Bush family as well as Dick Cheney interests, and represented the Bush/Cheney campaign in the Florida vote count challenges. It also represents the Carlyle Group. Money from oil, money from elections, money from war... a real win-win situation all the way around.

Terrorist Flight Schools in Florida demonstrated to be CIA operations 

Source: Investigative author Daniel Hopsicker, Madcowprod.com;
A number of proofs are uncovered by investigative author Daniel Hopsicker which prove ties. The significance is this: Osama bin Laden, if a legitimate self-respecting terrorist, would NEVER select a training ground without investigating it thoroughly, first. ONLY IF WORKING WITH CIA FROM THE START would he send his front-line attack cell into the jaws of CIA. Further, ONLY if CIA was working with and towards the SAME GOAL as the terrorists, would they overlook their presence and not seek to uncover and thwart their plants. This is proof that 911 was DOMESTIC STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM of the Reichtags Fire variety. It is an Operation Northwoods in action. The proofs offered include: access to CIA aircraft; CIA trained pilots; co-ventures in other CIA proprietaries; proprietaries with direct ties to prior CIA operations to include drug smuggling, Iran Contra, Mena Arkansas, and thus, our key man in things that go bump in the night, Jackson Stephens, who's  seat of power is located an easy drive away from the flight training schools.

Terrorist flight schools established as having ties to Bush family, and more
   Same plane - 3 'airlines'
Source (photo also): Investigative author Daniel Hopsicker, Madcowprod.com;, Harper's Magazine, June 25.  Jeb - AP photo
In a continuation of the above item, some of these same connections (Caribe Air and offshoot Caribe Airlines) are today controlled by a sister firm (Banc Caribe) which, in turn, is directly associated with money laundering for Osama bin Laden, and Enron, whose many offshore ventures used "Caribe" as part of their corporate naming structure. Caribe Air is also connected (by owner/operator ties) to various CIA proprietaries operating out of the nearby Charlotte County Airport (Florida) from which additional ties to the activities of Mohamed Atta were discovered. Finally, additional investment partnership ties exist to include joint interest in Florida Air (now Triple Diamond) and Discover Air. 

To these firms, can be connected Florida's Secretary of State, Katherine Harris, and, indirectly, Jeb Bush. Harris, now a Congresswoman as of the most recent election, is described frequently as "sexual partner" to Jeb Bush, and was key in removing 57,000 voters from the election fray that catapulted George Bush into the White House under questions of vote fraud. She was also co-chairwoman for the Bush campaign in Florida (where Jackson Stephens help was greatly appreciated.) No wonder whe was rewarded with a 'vote' to become a US Congresswoman.

Both Harris and Jeb Bush provided testimonies for Discover Air, and flew on the airline despite three significant problems: 1) Discover Air was not properly certified to carry passengers, and, 2) not one single ticket had been purchased,by the paying public, and 3) worse, one of their Lear Jets was earlier confiscated for drug smuggling by DEA. The confiscated plane came from the same source as planes used by Barry Seal to smuggle drugs into Mena Arkansas. This story is still developing...

Mohammed Atta said to be member of Saudi Royal family - fact suppressed by American media

Hopsicker discovers foreign media is saying what American media is not, and finds an American eye witness to revelations that not only was Atta a member of the Royal family, but that while training at Huffman Aviation in Florida, he was at all times accompanied by a Saudi-state provided body guard. This would make it awfully hard for Atta to be a"legitimate" terrorist since his every action would be known subject to Saudi scrutiny and examination. The only way Atta could get away with it is if there was some conspiracy between the Saudi government (Royal family) and others (such as CIA, Bush family) to STAGE a terrorist event. In the same time frame, Atta's German connections are also traced back to US intelligence.

This book describes Bush administration negotiations with the Taliban for ending civil war and allowing the pipeline to through Afghanistan to Pakistani sea ports - negotiations which took place right up to the month before the 911 attacks, in which US diplomats warned the Taliban that they could choose between "a carpet of gold" or "a carpet of bombs.") Not since Al Capone have such 'generous terms' in business tactics been used. Only now, instead of machine guns brandished by hardened criminals from the underworld, it the the US military brandished by a hardened criminal from the White House.

Mr. HK is non other than Hamid Karzai, the new Prime Minister of Afghanistan. This is a very fortunate post, because the road to leadership of the new Afghan "Republic" is paved with nearly a dozen assassinations of anyone who might have legitimately stood between Karzai and his CIA sponsored position of power. Strange that almost all of these assassinations were by bombs and blamed on Osama bin Laden, who ironically seems to have, by these assassinations, made it possible for CIA to have its way in the end. Karzai, former Unocal Advisor and architect of Centgas, now stands ready to implement any subsequent pipeline deals directly at the source. American Media hardly notices his CIA or oil industry past. The White House makes no mention of it, either. Oddly, Osama bin Laden no longer seems interested in assassinations in Afghanistan, now that CIA's man is installed.

This is unheard of and unprecedented, and has significant political ramifications under any circumstance. The significance is even greater, now, especially in the wake of 911 and the pre 911 ejection by the US of 200 Mossad agents who were spying on terrorists in the United States. Both of these events are clear indicators that Israel knows who and where the terrorists are, and also understands in a concrete way that they the US is not targeting them, but helping them. Thus we concretely know that there were and likely, still are members of the US military intelligence community working with terrorists in the United States. Israel has elected to defend itself.  Since Israel is being targeted by terrorists from the same organizations, as well, it must unilaterally act to protect itself, even to the point of risking political confrontation with the United States.
