9/11 - the final curtain:
20 Jul 2016
The end of a 15 years embargo on truth – an iceberg melting
That the event that has formed the modern world more than anything else was an inside job is the only plausible conclusion when analyzing the official facts as well as experts and eyewitnesses from then up till now. The evidence and the circumstances around the creation of the ¨war on terror‘ is more than enough to demand not only a new investigation but a lawful prosecution of the people in political power at the time of the attacks. The long awaited now released 28 ‚secret pages‘ are the tip of an already melting iceberg

The Twin Towers in New York on September 11, 2001, both towers burning quietly. The South Tower (left) is collapsing the whole 400 meters down to ground level around 10 seconds after this picture was taken. Shortly after, the North Tower collapses the same way.

With the July 2016 release of the 28 redacted pages from the 9/11 commission report, we now know that high-ranked Saudi government officials and individuals from the Saudi intelligence community were heavily involved in the 9/11 attacks in the United States in 2001. As were Israel‘s Mossad and the United States‘ CIA, all acting on behalf of the US military-industrial complex which has gained immense momentum through what is effectively a permanent „war on terror“. This war machine feeds corrupt politicians, controls and manipulates journalists and thrives on violence and conflicts. And it is time to break the silence.

 

The 9/11-attack was planned in the 90s as a shock therapy - a new Pearl Harbor. A war was desperately needed, were the proud American war industry not to collapse, given it no longer had a tangible enemy. Worse, the US was losing its political grip on the world, as the Soviet Union had dissolved and the Europeans and Russians were about to interact in peaceful relations. Everything, that had made America great, was about to vanish.

 

So in 2000, a new vision for America’s war industry was laid out. The right wing think-tank Project for a New American Century (PNAC), founded by prominent neo-conservatives like Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush, Richard Perle, John Bolton, Scooter Libby, Paul Wolfowitz, Robert Kagan and William Kristol, published a report after three years of intensive work, entitled ‘Rebuilding America’s Defenses’ which provided the guidelines for the rebirth of the American war industry and a way to ensure the United States would remain the world’s mightiest political and military power.

 

In neoconservative circles, it was believed that the only way forward was a “new Pearl Harbor” style event, and this was openly mentioned in the PNAC report; “this process of transformation is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor.”, the report reads.

 

And the events of 9/11 clearly had that effect. The nation went to war, and this time it was not against a single conflict against a dictator somewhere, but a persistent, worldwide, random war which could range wherever forces in the US and elsewhere deemed it fit to fight. And those who are “not with the US,are with the terrorists”. Remember that?

 

This ‘war on terror’ war has enabled the vast US war machine, backed by countries like Germany, France, England and Denmark, to bomb civilian areas in Sudan, Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq in an attempt to kill individuals pointed out to the US-intelligence community as ‚terrorists’. It’s a never-ending and diabolicalmerry-go-round - creating terror and refugees through systematically bombing civilian areas.

 

Fifteen years after 9/11 almost all our respected institutions and values have gone. The US even has a law that allows its forces to intervene militarily in Europe if a US-citizen is apprehended by the International Court of Justice in The Hague. The United Nations Security Council was overruled by the US in the illegal invasion of Iraq, and nowadays US-led western forces can bomb as they please. Even the UN Human Rights Council isnow widely seen as a joke - being headed by one of the most repressive dictatorships in the world, Saudi Arabia.

 

Now, we even stand on the brink of a new war, also fought a long way from ‘back home in the US’. The build-up of the NATO war machine in Europe has been going on for years and has been intensified with nuclear weapons under President Barack Obama. It appears this war will be conventional, fought on European soil and a lot of Europeans will die -but that’s a risk the US is prepared to accept.

 

But 15 years after 9/11 we also know who was behind the 9/11 attacks and if we don’t address the issue now, humanity will be lost.

 

America dependent on war for decades

North America as a nation is dependent on war and has been for decades. In 2014, 57 percent of the US’ discretionary budget was allocated to ‘defense spendings’, and without this war machine running, the nation would have gone broke. Out of 238 years of history, the US has been at war for 222, almost always a long way from home, and now globally defending ‘democracy and freedom’ - or so the story goes. We literally have a war-addicted nation heading NATO, which should have been a defence union serving peace after the cataclysm of World War Two.

 

Two presidents tried to warn us about this development. President Dwight Eisenhower in his ‘farewell speech’ in 1961 and John F Kennedy three months later, in his so-called ‘secret societies speech’. Both were talking about the military-industrial complex, both were talking about the American “deep state” - the CIA. But since, then no one has talked about this complex, so either the problem has gone away by itself, or the complex hastaken control.

 

This complex was founded during the Cold War, where immense fortunes were made from preparing for a possible war, and the secret communities and secret weapon programs that were involved. There was practically no limit to the resources used by the Pentagon and the CIA to detect and fight communism and the show even beyond our planet in the so-called “space race”. As the Cold War disappeared, so did the prospects of maintaining these positions of power. And the brilliant answer was an eternal ‘war on terror’, launched right after the ‘catastrophic and catalyzing’ events of 9/11.

 

Very soon after 9/11, the first hints of Saudi involvement in the events surfaced. Two dozen members of Osama bin Laden’s family were urgently evacuated with private jets from the United States in the first days following the attacks. Later it came to light that 11 of the 19 hijackers had got the Visa-papers at the american consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, same place used for doing the paperwork in the trafficking of the Mujahedeen-fighters in the 80s.

The Israeli spy ring

But the Saudi’s were not alone in this. A 61-page DEA task-force report addresses an massive Israeli spy ring of more than 120 agents, discovered operating in the United States in 2001. 14 Israeli ‘Art Students were according to several researchers inside the twin towers with construction passes and were reported to be active agents in electronic surveillance units of the Israeli military.

 

These details of a spy ring that operated across the United states employing intelligence agents posing as “art students” to gain access to sensitive U.S. government offices, defense companies, and the private homes of employees of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), started to emerge in early 2002, clearly suggesting involvement of the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad too. The report was later confirmed by the transcript of a four part Fox News Report on ‘Israeli spying in the US’.

 

Also, confirmed by senator Al Franken in 2004, a number of mostly jewish individuals were being warned not to go to work on 9/11 - they got ‘the jew call’ - another strong suggestion of Israeli involvement in the events. Clearly someone way up in the american circles of power knew - a fact also proved by the massive high-level insider trading on the very day, laid bare by German investigative journalist Lars Schall and several independent university studies.

 

An operation like those attacks, which incorporated international ties, falsified ID’s and years of traveling, planning and preparation, is simply not possible without the knowledge of various intelligence communities. And the US intelligence communities knew, something was going on. They delivered dozens of memos to President Bush W Bush on the security briefings, especially that on August 6, 2001 when they delivered a briefing with the headline: “Bin Laden Determined To Strike in US”. 

 

At least someone was determined, that’s for sure. But it certainly wasn’t Bin Laden doing the insider trading on the New York Stock Exchange, and no one has ever accused him of being behind the many warnings to stay away from the Towers on 9/11. And it was definitely not Osama bin Laden who called the Danish prime minister on 9/11, a few minutes before the first tower collapsed, telling him that both towers were going to come down. Still, someone did, and he wasn’t Saudi Arabian either.

 

A deliberate take over of power

The information surrounding the whole event point conclusively to the fact that this was a deliberate attempt totry ad take over political and military power worldwide - a process now taking place under the disguise of the ‘war on terror’, where president Bush left the rest of the world with two options: “You’re either with us, or with the terrorists/against us” [delete as appropriate. pt]. The whole scenario is like a badly composed Hollywood B-movie, where a bunch of bad guys plan to take over control of the world.

 

In 1976-77 George H.W. Bush was director of the CIA, and according to journalist Wayne Madsen and others he used the Saudi intelligence service as “his own private CIA” to run black operations disapproved of - or even totally without knowledge of - the US Congress.These operations, we now know, were almost always connected to drug smuggling or gun running and were often used to initiate regime changes in countries criticalof the USA. Through the Saudi intelligence services, the criminal US-neocons literally got themselves a ‘black CIA’ to do the dirtiest of their already very dirty business.

 

The Bush and Bin Laden families had been doing businesses for more than 20 years, and the young George W. Bush, later president, founded his first oil company partly with money from the Bin Laden family. Also the Bush empire had been growing businesses with the Saudi royal family and numerous princes in Saudi Arabia. The Bin Laden family was even an official investor in the Carlyle Group until the fall of 2001 where the relationship became too embarrassing and the family withdrew its money.

 

Through the 90s as the US war industry was fighting for survival, PNAC and others were advocating for an invasion of Iraq, as it was seen as the only realistic way for the future of the military-industrial complex in the US to be assured. Moreover, a US presence in Iraq would give access to huge oil resources and pave the way for decades of new business-making conflicts. Shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, the PNAC even sent a letter to President George W. Bush, advocating “a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq”, or “regime change”. 

 

The letter suggested that “any strategy aiming at the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq,” even if no evidence surfaced linking Iraq to the September 11 attacks. The letter warned that allowing Hussein to remain in power would be “an early and perhaps decisive surrender in the war on international terrorism”.

 

Back in 1998, the PNAC had written exactly the same to president Clinton: “We urge you to turn your Administration’s attention to implementing a strategy for removing Saddam’s regime from power. This will require a full complement of diplomatic, political and military efforts”. The letter as signed by Donald Rumsfeld and Paul Wolfowitz, later Secretary and Deputy Secretary of Defense in the Bush-administration.

 

The evidence surfacing shortly after 9/11 didn’t point to Iraq, but towards Saudi Arabia and Israel. While the evidence involving Israel is yet to be addressed, the engagement of the state of Saudi Arabia is now out in the open.

 

„A long and sordid history of financing global terror“

According to US Senator Bob Graham, who has long fought for the declassification of the 28 Saudi’ pages: “The Saudis have a long and sordid history of financing global terror movements, providing the seed money for Al Qaeda as far back as the 1980s, and also providing startup capital for the Taliban [in Afghanistan].”

 

This 15-year embargo on the truth, Graham says, offers functional “immunity” to the Saudi regime, still complicit in “funding terror organizations such as ISIS,” and which is “training the next generation of terrorists in mosques and schools”.

 

What Graham points out should be obvious to anyone at this point of time, regardless of the 28 pages: That through decades of co-operation with the corrupt Saudi dictatorship the criminal American neocons have gained not only immense personal fortunes, but a global political leadership that seems to have blinded the democracies in the West. Everything in the ‘Rebuilding Americas Defences’ has come through, even the ‘new Pearl Harbor’.

 

Through a strategy of mostly proxy wars, the US was ready to invade Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran in October 2001, in all cases to install a US-friendly regime and m¡aintain the Petrodollar-business. The ‘War on terror’ made it all possible, and all the mentioned countries are now on their knees.

 

From the Pentagon Papers (2012) published in 2015 by Judicial Watch we know that the US was willingly and heavily arming groups like Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafists in northern Iraq because these groups were fighting against the declared US enemy, democratically elected President Bashar al Assad in Syria. The many different groups armed by both the CIA and Pentagon are now even sometimes fighting each other..

 

Again: Proxy war to secure american interests

This is exactly what happened in Afghanistan in the 80s; a proxy war to secure American interests. On October 6, 2009, then- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated on CBS, that Al Qaeda in Afghanistan was created by the United States:

 

“It seemed like a great idea, back in the 80s to - embolden - and train and equip - Taliban, mujahidin, jihadists against the Soviet Union, which had invaded Afghanistan. And with our help, and with the Pakistani support-- this group-- including, at that time, Bin Laden, defeated the Soviet Union. Drove them out of Afghanistan, eventually”, Clinton said in CBS News Special Report: The Road Ahead.

 

But that was only partly true. Apparently she forgot the famous interview with President Jimmy Carter’s security advisor, Zbigbiew Brzezinski in ‘Le Nouvel Observateur’, Paris on 21. January 2007. When asked about the Mujahedeen, Brzezinski said: “According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980. That is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.”

 

So not only did the US arm and create Al Queda, but it was not in order to support the resistance against the Sovjet occupation of Afghanistan, it was to provoke the occupation. A proxy war, and the makers of this plan are to be found in the dark circles in the upper echelons of the American political, military and intelligence community - the military-industrial complex which two presidents have tried to warn us against. The military-industrial complex which no one even discusses anymore. Either the problem is gone or these powers already have taken over.

 

The fact is the western mainstream media in general is controlled by powers very friendly to the US, and its silence and ignorance around 9/11 is just one example. According to Watergate-journalist Carl Bernstein 400 american journalists were on the payroll of the CIA in 1974 when the cold war were at its height and in 2015 a widely known German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, published a book where he laid open the ongoing and very active role of the CIA in German news organisations.

 

The CIA works on behalf of the American war machine, and operates at every level: Media, politicians and NGO’s and has done so for decades. Through this almost complete control it has succeeded in changing a prosperous future in Europe, with co-operation and open borders throughout the continent, into a likely disaster. Already, millions have died in this diabolic invention, the ‘war on terror’, declared by a country desperately dependent on war. To think that this machine could not be behind 9/11 is, in light of the facts, naive. This machine thrives onwar, and the politicians going along with it are making millions by pretending that we are all the good guys. Reality says differently, and it is time to break the silence.

 

The release of the 28 pages, overdue since 2003, is a great step forward. But tens of thousands of documents are still kept secret because of ‘national security’.

 

For instance, still missing from public scrutiny are documents about the involvement of government-sponsored Saudi religious institutions in supporting al Qaeda as well as documents about Al-Qaeda’s wealthy Gulf donors and support by Islamic banks and financial institutions.  And there is also no mention of the fact that 11 of the 9/11 ‘hijackers’ got their visa papers at the American consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia - same place that arranged the papers for thousands of Mujahedeens in the 80s.

 

It is increasingly clear that insiders in the American state apparatus played a major role in the 9/11 event, now proven with very likely co-operation from associates at government level in S,audi Arabia - a country defendingWahhabism - the most perverted form of Islam - and systematically - with bombs and terror - trying to destroy all opponents. A country that should be put before the International Court in The Hague along with the most likely perpetrators behind 9/11 and the defenders of wars based on lies. We even know where to start: Bush,both senior and junior, Tony Blair and Anders “Fog of War” Rasmussen, Dick Cheney andColin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz - the rest will come along as we go.

 

If you look at the greater picture, the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel have been systematically killing millions of people for decades, boosting the war industry, first and foremost in America, but also in countries like Sweden, Germany, England, France and others, where both selected politicians and journalists are equally controlled, both groups being rewarded with personal wealth and a jet-set life.

 

Based on evidence and simple logic we can exclude the official 9/11 story as an outrageous conspiracy theory. But would the powers that be lie to us on this scale on such a grave matter? And if so, why?

 

In October 1990, a 15-year-old girl stood crying before the American House of Representative’s Human Rights Caucus. She testified that Iraqi soldiers who had invaded Kuwait on August 2nd that year, tore hundreds of babies from hospital incubators and killed them. Television flashed her testimony around the world and Saddam Hussein was now portrayed by U.S. president George Bush not only as “the Butcher of Baghdad” but “a tyrant worse than Hitler”. 

 

Coalition forces invaded Kuwait City on February 27, 1991 - but the story about the babies was fantasy. The young girl had been instructed by Hill & Knowltons Washington office, a public relations firm hired to rally the U.S. populace behind Bush’s policy of going to war. The man running Hill & Knowlton’s Washington office was Craig Fuller, one of Bush’s closest friends and inside political advisors. A full-scale invasion based on a deliberate lie.

 

On February 5th, 2003, Colin Powel stood for the United Nations, presenting ‘evidence’ of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Only we now know he too, lied.

 

Powell played an intercept of a conversation between Iraqi army officers about the UN inspections. However, when he translated what they were saying, he knowingly embellished it, turning it from evidence Iraq was complying with U.N. resolutions into evidence that Iraq was violating them.

 

The whole U.S. case—relating to biological weapons—was based on the direct knowledge of a single agent known as Curveball, whose credibility had previously been cast in serious doubt. It was all lies, not a single such weapon was found,  either by the weapon inspectors or by the western forces, which invaded Iraq in 2003. A full-scale invasion based on a deliberate lie.

 

The initial attack on Iraq cost far more than the lives of 100,000 people and the wounding of even more. It is still seen by many as the world’s largest terrorist attack ever - at least that’s how it feels when you’re at the wrong side of the bombs.

 

At least twice in recent history the US has sent the world into wars based on deliberate lies. So why not on 9/11?

 

But now, It seems for an increasing number of people around the world the case of 9/11 is solved, and the story about the 19 hijackers with box cutters, remotely controlled from a cave in a mountain in Afghanistan by the ultra-bad Osama bin Laden, is regarded as what is is - a fairy tale. And the official explanation, an insult to common intelligence.

 

The iceberg is melting. Lies may have been travelling half way around the world for decades, but now, the truth has finally got its boots on.

  1. *Freut* mich, dass “es sich doch noch jemand antut” dieses doch noch weitgehend tabuisierte bzw. manchmal brutal unterdrückte Thema aufzugreifen. Artikel ausgedruckt zum genaueren Studium …

    (Verlinkte) Quellenangaben scheinen im online-Artikel zu FEHLEN ?

  2. “Based on evidence and simple logic we can exclude the official 9/11 story as an outrageous conspiracy theory. … And the official explanation [is] an insult to common intelligence.”
    = BEAUTIFUL. I’ve never seen it summed up better. (Oh, if common sense/intelligence were only more common!)
