Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far
better that you fear the media, for they will steal your HONOR. That
awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a

     The urging of many in the press to not bother investigating

     The methodical exploitation of the event in Israel

     Sharon's obvious motive to turn around public opinion after
     his brutal and callous willingness to retaliate with high
     "collateral damage" to innocent Palestinian bystanders
     and non-belligerents -- which cost Israel world opinion
     Sharon's brutalized background as a "freedom fighter" killing

     Mossad's willingness to kill and deceive even allies for the
     "greater good" of defending Israel and its people
     The willingness to think big and incurr lots of deaths to
     make geopolitical gains, was when Israel attacked
     the American USS Liberty with US flag flying and
     in successive attacks to kill all witnesses -- either
     to frame Israel's enemies or because the Liberty
     may have picked up information that Israel did not
     want out.

     The fact that two of the supposed Arab/Moslem "terrorists"
     identified as having hijacked the planes for use as
     a curise missile have been found alive and well (one

     The fact that Israel also has its "freedom fighters" willing

     The fact that sophisticated psychological warfare means

     The fact that Israel's leadership is partially Trotskyite and

     The fact that many American Jews love Israel, fear for the

     The fact that the American establishment monopoly is giving
     the current administration unprecedented praise and
     popularity-generating coverage as long as he continues
     to make "let's-war, not-think" talk.
    The fact that congress was immediately ready to dump
     20 billion "to fight terrorism" rather than to "locate
     the perpetrators" -- 20 billion to the CIA which is
     heavily penetrated by Mossad.

     That is enough to to suggest suspicion is not entirely

     Mao Tse-tung and ZHou Enlai -- and China, by the

     much of the world -- and NOTE: Pakistan is something
     of a puppet of China, especially the Maoist Bhutto faction
     that has quais-returned to power with the lastest coup --
     and think of the tremendous geopolicial gain for CHina
     if the US puts ground troops in Afganistan through

     In all honesty I cannot imagin anyone in the US elite being
     willing to speak up, to take the bullets (figurative, but perhaps
     not too figurative).

     Still, if Bush could rise to this courageous act -- not of

State Department memo warned of terrorist threat

Phillip Matier, Andrew Ross, Chronicle Staff Writers
Friday, September 14, 2001

URL: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2001/09/14/MN92245.DTL&type=printable

Former U.S. Secretary of State George Shultz said yesterday that he was "startled" by a little-noticed State Department memo that was issued a week ago and warned that Americans "may be the target of a terrorist threat."

The memo, issued just four days before the attacks on New York and Washington, identified the threat as coming from "extremist groups with links to Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda organization."

"I have not idea what intelligence lies behind the warning," Shultz said, ''but they put this out because they had some sort of intelligence."

Shultz, who served as secretary of state under President Reagan, said he received a copy of the Sept. 7 "worldwide warning" in his San Francisco office on the day before the fatal attacks. The memo addressed concerns for Americans overseas and made no mention of any possible attack on U.S. soil.

Reached last night, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein said this was the first she had heard anything about the State Department warnings.

"Everyone should have been (alerted), but then you would have to ask whether they would have known what to look out for," Feinstein said.

"Of course," Feinstein said, "today is a different world, and I think a lot of things are going to change.

"Bin Laden's people had made statements three weeks ago carried in the Arab press in Great Britain that they were preparing to carry out unprecedented attacks in the U.S.," she said. "Whether that was the derivation of this (State Department ) bulletin, I don't know."

The warning dealt primarily with military bases in Japan and Korea.

But as Shultz pointed out, the mere fact that a warning was issued indicates that "something was cooking."

And indeed, in the one-page alert, the State Department said it had received information in May 2001 "that American citizens may be the target of a terrorist threat from extremist groups with links to Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda organization."

"Such individuals have not distinguished between official and civilian targets," the report said, adding, "As always, we take this information seriously. U.S. Government facilities worldwide remain on heightened alert."

"They had some sort of rumbling of something," Shultz said, "even if they didn't pinpoint it in the right direction."

U.S. State Department representative Julie Reside in Washington downplayed the significance of the bulletin yesterday, saying it was only the latest in a series of "periodically" issued public warnings by the department.

Reside said warnings are available to media organizations and on the state department's Web page.

"If it was based on intelligence, we cannot, of course, provide any details, " Reside said.

It's not the first time this year that the bin Laden organization was mentioned in a "worldwide caution." The first warning came in May, and was later updated on Sept. 7 to include the threats to U.S. military personnel in Asia.

Officials at San Francisco International Airport said they weren't aware of the State Department warning - but someone in the airport security section knew of it and passed word of the warning onto Mayor Willie Brown when he called to check on the status of flight he was planning to take to New York.

"I didn't give it much thought at the time," Brown said. "It wasn't until after the attacks that I even remembered the call."

Whether U.S. military installations around the world were aware of the memo and took extra precautions is a bit unclear. Department of Defense spokesman Glenn Flood said his agency would have received a copy of the bulletin. But, he added, "There was no order from the Pentagon for every base to go on heightened alert, because that's up to the commands in each theater, and some are on alert anyway."

State Department spokesman Richard Boucher made mention of the bulletin at a routine -- and sparsely attended -- media briefing last Friday. He explained that the department was revising a June 22 notice to include warnings about threats to the military in Japan and Korea and "to ensure that the general American public is aware of this potential danger to their safety."

Boucher declined to say whether the threat in Asia was directly linked to bin Laden.

Internet Domain Names May Have Warned of Attacks
By Jeff Johnson
CNSNews.com Congressional Bureau Chief
September 19, 2001

(CNSNews.com) - The terrorists who planned and executed the September 11 attack on America may have registered as many as 20 Internet domain names, or web addresses, that experts believe should have warned authorities of a possible assault on the World Trade Center in New York City.

Internet domain names like 'attackontwintowers.com' and 'worldtradetowerattack.com' were registered more than a year ago. It's not known at this time who registered the suspicious names or what their purpose was.

"It's unbelievable that they (the registration company) would register these domain names, probably without any comment to the FBI," according to Neil Livingstone, head of Global Options LLC, a Washington, D.C.-based counter-terrorism and investigation company.

"If they did make a comment to the FBI, it's unbelievable that the FBI didn't react to it," he added.

A spokeswoman in the FBI press office would only say that the agency will not comment on its investigation into the attacks.

According to Livingstone, at least 17 domain names, including 'pearlharborinmanhattan.com' and 'worldtradetowerstrike.com,' were registered as early as June 2000, 15 months prior to the attacks.

Two of the domain names contained the dates August 11 and September 29, which Livingstone said may have indicated the window of opportunity during which the attackers planned to strike.

He also dismissed speculation that the domain names were a reference to the bombing of the World Trade Center eight years ago. "You have two other names containing 2001, so there's no confusion over the 1993 World Trade Center attack."

To protect his sources, Livingstone would not say with which company the domain names in question were registered. He had no information about the identity of the person or people who registered the names.

A domain name search Tuesday indicated that hundreds of web addresses containing references to the terrorist attacks were registered in the past week, and four of the older domain names provided by Livingstone have already been re-registered.

Domain name registrants are required to use a credit card for payment, and must provide administrative, technical, and billing contact information.

That information, except the credit card data, is available to the public as long as the registration is kept current.

Livingstone indicated that the required use of a credit card should mean that authorities would at least have a starting point to investigate the registrant.

"This is something that someone should have noticed," he said, "but privacy issues probably kept it from being noticed."

Telephone calls to several domain name registration companies Tuesday were not returned.

The website for Network Solutions, the world's largest domain name registrar, included a privacy statement indicative of industry standards regarding confidentiality: "We will not share such information with other third parties, except in response to formal requests (e.g., subpoena or court order) made in connection with litigation or arbitration proceedings directly relating to a domain name registration or other services we provide."

Former CIA Director James Woolsey said current laws make it difficult for the FBI to get a warrant for electronic surveillance and wiretaps, or to recruit informants based on actions such as registering threatening domain names.

"There would not be enough material that is close enough to a specific crime for an investigation to be opened," Woolsey said.

But Livingstone believes authorities should have the right to investigate inflammatory rhetoric, even something as simple as the registration of a web address that might indicate criminal intent.

"Something like this ought to come to our attention, and we ought to investigate whether you do intend to act on it, or whether you're just a nut case out there who's just venting," he said.

The attackers might have been planning a propaganda campaign following the attacks, according to Livingstone. "Maybe their success was so overwhelming that they didn't need to use this," he said. "Or they may have decided it was too dangerous to do."

Domain names on the list provided to Livingstone by an industry insider included:

United States Ground Troops Land in Pakistan
en-route to Afghanistan Invasion

Britain Sending 50,000 Ground Troops

Turkey About to Invade Iraq in three pronged

Military experts can disclose that the U.S. 82nd
and 101st airborne divisions, or nearly half of
the airborne combat forces at the immediate
disposal of U.S. President George W. Bush, are
currently being airlifted to bases in Pakistan.

The bulk of these forces will be moved to the
northern Punjab region of Pakistan and take up
position near the city of Dera Ismail and in the
valleys at the foot of the Suleiman mountain
range, across from their main target the Afghan
city of Kandahar.

The United States also intends to lay siege to,
or capture, the Afghan cities of Medan, Galdek
and Maroof as well as the Arghastan Valley, where,
according to intelligence provided by Russia,
India and Israel, Osama bin Laden’s forces have
been concentrated in recent months.

The U.S. operations will include air bombardments
and missile strikes against Afghanistan’s
principal cities: Kabul, Jalalabad and Kandahar.

Afghanistan is not the only target. Washington is
planning a three-stage offensive against Iraq
with the participation of U.S., British and
Turkish forces.

Military sources reported back on Friday,
September 9, that the Turkish army is on a state
of war alert.

Now, our sources add that the Turkish army is
poised along its border with Kurdish northern
Iraq. It intends to invade the Shouman region and
capture the cities of Biyar and Tiwal in the
Urman district. The two cities are controlled by
Jund al-Islam, a Muslim group supposedly funded
by bin Laden.

The United States now understands that the 200
Taliban fighters who arrived there in mid-July,
puzzling many observers, were members of Bin
Laden’s general staff, pulled out of Afghanistan
two months earlier as part of his preparations
for Tuesday’s terror attacks in New York and
Washington. Now they may be targets of a
US-Turkish hunt in one prong of the thrust into

Also, Jordanian intelligence has reported a large
concentration of Iraqi forces on the main roads
leading from Iraq to Damascus and from Iraq to
the Golan Heights.

A top Israeli official said in answer to a
question from a military intelligence reporter -
"We may be back in the 1991 Gulf War, when the
administration of Bush Sr. depended heavily on an
Arab coalition and demanded that Israeli stand
aside. We were therefore prevented from fighting

Looks like Bush gave Taliban $43 million in May.


USA: Bush's Faustian Deal With the Taliban

by Robert Scheer
Los Angeles Times
May 22, 2001

Note: This column written in May is highly relevant to today's news.--Ed.

Enslave your girls and women, harbor anti-U.S. terrorists, destroy every vestige of civilization in your homeland, and the Bush administration will embrace you. All that matters is that you line up as an ally in the drug war, the only international cause that this nation still takes seriously.

That's the message sent with the recent gift of $43 million to the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan, the most virulent anti-American violators of human rights in the world today. The gift, announced last Thursday by Secretary of State Colin Powell, in addition to other recent aid, makes the U.S. the main sponsor of the Taliban and rewards that "rogue regime" for declaring that opium growing is against the will of God. So, too, by the Taliban's estimation, are most human activities, but it's the ban on drugs that catches this administration's attention.

Never mind that Osama bin Laden still operates the leading anti-American terror operation from his base in Afghanistan, from which, among other crimes, he launched two bloody attacks on American embassies in Africa in 1998.

Sadly, the Bush administration is cozying up to the Taliban regime at a time when the United Nations, at U.S. insistence, imposes sanctions on Afghanistan because the Kabul government will not turn over Bin Laden.

The war on drugs has become our own fanatics' obsession and easily trumps all other concerns. How else could we come to reward the Taliban, who has subjected the female half of the Afghan population to a continual reign of terror in a country once considered enlightened in its treatment of women?

At no point in modern history have women and girls been more systematically abused than in Afghanistan where, in the name of madness masquerading as Islam, the government in Kabul obliterates their fundamental human rights. Women may not appear in public without being covered from head to toe with the oppressive shroud called the burkha, and they may not leave the house without being accompanied by a male family member. They've not been permitted to attend school or be treated by male doctors, yet women have been banned from practicing medicine or any profession for that matter.

The lot of males is better if they blindly accept the laws of an extreme religious theocracy that prescribes strict rules governing all behavior, from a ban on shaving to what crops may be grown. It is this last power that has captured the enthusiasm of the Bush White House.

The Taliban fanatics, economically and diplomatically isolated, are at the breaking point, and so, in return for a pittance of legitimacy and cash from the Bush administration, they have been willing to appear to reverse themselves on the growing of opium. That a totalitarian country can effectively crack down on its farmers is not surprising. But it is grotesque for a U.S. official, James P. Callahan, director of the State Department's Asian anti-drug program, to describe the Taliban's special methods in the language of representative democracy: "The Taliban used a system of consensus-building," Callahan said after a visit with the Taliban, adding that the Taliban justified the ban on drugs "in very religious terms."

Of course, Callahan also reported, those who didn't obey the theocratic edict would be sent to prison.

In a country where those who break minor rules are simply beaten on the spot by religious police and others are stoned to death, it's understandable that the government's "religious" argument might be compelling. Even if it means, as Callahan concedes, that most of the farmers who grew the poppies will now confront starvation. That's because the Afghan economy has been ruined by the religious extremism of the Taliban, making the attraction of opium as a previously tolerated quick cash crop overwhelming.

For that reason, the opium ban will not last unless the U.S. is willing to pour far larger amounts of money into underwriting the Afghan economy.

As the Drug Enforcement Administration's Steven Casteel admitted, "The bad side of the ban is that it's bringing their country--or certain regions of their country--to economic ruin." Nor did he hold out much hope for Afghan farmers growing other crops such as wheat, which require a vast infrastructure to supply water and fertilizer that no longer exists in that devastated country. There's little doubt that the Taliban will turn once again to the easily taxed cash crop of opium in order to stay in power.

The Taliban may suddenly be the dream regime of our own war drug war zealots, but in the end this alliance will prove a costly failure. Our long sad history of signing up dictators in the war on drugs demonstrates the futility of building a foreign policy on a domestic obsession.

A flying mystery object was captured on video just moment after a second aircraft crashed into New York's World Trade Center, it can be revealed.


Stills from a video taken by GAMMA PRESS USA -- showing the twin towers from an east angle -- clearly show an unknown object moving at a 90 degree angle to the second plane's flight path.

Was a military jet following the second plane? Is the object a radar-guided missile that was fired at the airliner -- but arrived seconds late? Is the object a post-event distortion by a GAMMA PRESS editor? Could the image be a giant piece of debris racing toward the horizon?

The mystery surrounding the video intensified in and out of official government over the weekend.

A close examination of the footage appears to first show the object flashed by sunlight -- above the left tower -- a full 10 seconds after impact of the second airliner. The mystery object quickly streeks across the the back of the right tower before swooping down at a rapid clip and out of the camera's frame.

The video featuring the mystery object has so far failed to catch the attention of the nation's main press.

It should be noted that no reports from countless bystanders or other video footage has backed up the GAMMA video, which was running at FOXNEWS.COM as of Sunday evening [

Alleged Hijackers May Have Trained at U.S. Bases

Sept. 15 —  U.S. military sources have given the FBI information that suggests five of the alleged hijackers of the planes that were used in Tuesday’s terror attacks received training at secure U.S. military installations in the 1990s.

        THREE OF THE alleged hijackers listed their address on drivers licenses and car registrations as the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla.—known as the “Cradle of U.S. Navy Aviation,” according to a high-ranking U.S. Navy source.
        Another of the alleged hijackers may have been trained in strategy and tactics at the Air War College in Montgomery, Ala., said another high-ranking Pentagon official. The fifth man may have received language instruction at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Tex. Both were former Saudi Air Force pilots who had come to the United States, according to the Pentagon source.
        But there are slight discrepancies between the military training records and the official FBI list of suspected hijackers—either in the spellings of their names or with their birthdates. One military source said it is possible that the hijackers may have stolen the identities of the foreign nationals who studied at the U.S. installations.

The five men were on a list of 19 people identified as hijackers by the FBI on Friday. The three foreign nationals training in Pensacola appear to be Saeed Alghamdi and Ahmad Alnami, who were among the four men who allegedly commandeered United Airlines Flight 93. That flight crashed into rural Pennsylvania. The third man who may have trained in Pensacola, Ahmed Alghamdi, allegedly helped highjack United Airlines Flight 75, which hit the south tower of the World Trade Center.

Military records show that the three used as their address 10 Radford Boulevard, a base roadway on which residences for foreign-military flight trainees are located. In March 1997, Saeed Alghamdi listed the address to register a 1998 Oldsmobile; five months later he used it again to register a second vehicle, a late model Buick. Drivers licenses thought to have been issued to the other two suspects in 1996 and 1998 list the barracks as their residences.
NEWSWEEK visited the base early Saturday morning, where military police confirmed that the address housed foreign military flight trainees but denied access past front barricades. Officials at the base confirmed that the FBI is investigating the three students.
It is not unusual for foreign nationals to train at U.S. military facilities. A former Navy pilot told NEWSWEEK that during his years on the base, “we always, always, always trained other countries’ pilots. When I was there two decades ago, it was Iranians. The shah was in power. Whoever the country du jour is, that’s whose pilots we train.”
Candidates begin with “an officer’s equivalent of boot camp,” he said. “Then they would put them through flight training.” The U.S. has a long-standing agreement with Saudi Arabia—a key ally in the 1990-91 gulf war—to train pilots for its National Guard. Candidates are trained in air combat on several Army and Navy bases. Training is paid for by Saudi Arabia.

'CIA worked with Pak to create Taliban'
Sanjay Suri, London
March 06, 2001 11:40 Hrs (IST)

THE CENTRAL Intelligence Agency (CIA) worked in tandem with Pakistan to create the "monster" that is today Afghanistan's ruling Taliban, a leading US expert on South Asia said here.
"I warned them that we were creating a monster," Selig Harrison from the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars said at the conference here last week on "Terrorism and Regional Security: Managing the Challenges in Asia."

Harrison said: "The CIA made a historic mistake in encouraging Islamic groups from all over the world to come to Afghanistan." The US provided $3 billion for building up these Islamic groups, and it accepted Pakistan's demand that they should decide how this money should be spent, Harrison said.
Harrison, who spoke before the Taliban assault on the Buddha statues was launched, told the gathering of security experts that he had meetings with CIA leaders at the time when Islamic forces were being strengthened in Afghanistan. "They told me these people were fanatical, and the more fierce they were the more fiercely they would fight the Soviets," he said. "I warned them that we were creating a monster."
Harrison, who has written five books on Asian affairs and US relations with Asia, has had extensive contact with the CIA and political leaders in South Asia. Harrison was a senior associate of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace between 1974 and 1996.

Harrison who is now senior fellow with The Century Foundation recalled a conversation he had with the late Gen Zia-ul Haq of Pakistan. "Gen Zia spoke to me about expanding Pakistan's sphere of influence to control Afghanistan, then Uzbekistan and Tajikstan and then Iran and Turkey," Harrison said. That design continues, he said. Gen. Mohammed Aziz who was involved in that Zia plan has been elevated now to a key position by Chief Executive, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, Harrison said.
The old associations between the intelligence agencies continue, Harrison said. "The CIA still has close links with the ISI (Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence)."
Today that money and those weapons have helped build up the Taliban, Harrison said. "The Taliban are not just recruits from 'madrassas' (Muslim theological schools) but are on the payroll of the ISI (Inter Services Intelligence, the intelligence wing of the Pakistani government)." The Taliban are now "making a living out of terrorism."

Harrison said the UN Security Council resolution number 1333 calls for an embargo on arms to the Taliban. "But it is a resolution without teeth because it does not provide sanctions for non-compliance," he said. "The US is not backing the Russians who want to give more teeth to the resolution."
Now it is Pakistan that "holds the key to the future of Afghanistan," Harrison said. The creation of the Taliban was central to Pakistan's "pan-Islamic vision," Harrison said.
It came after "the CIA made the historic mistake of encouraging Islamic groups from all over the world to come to Afghanistan," he said. The creation of the Taliban had been "actively encouraged by the ISI and the CIA," he said. "Pakistan has been building up Afghan collaborators who will sustain Pakistan," he said.

Towers collapse "too methodical"

Photo of 2nd plane.
Shallow angle of impact.

A PsyOpNews.com Alert
Van Romero, vice president forresearch at New Mexico Institute of  Mining and Technology
says the collapse of the twin towers resembled those of controlled implosions used in planned demolition.

"My opinion is, based on the videotapes, that after the airplanes hit the World Trade Center there were some explosive devices inside the buildings that caused the towers to collapse," Romero said.

A demolition expert, Romero is a former director of the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center at Tech, which studies explosive materials and the effects of explosions on buildings, aircraft and other structures.

He said he and Denny Peterson, vice president for administration and finance, were en route to an office building near the Pentagon to discuss defense-funded research programs at Tech. Romero told the Albequerque
Journal that he based his opinion on video aired on national television broadcasts.

The detonations could have been caused by a small amount of explosive put in more than two points in each of the towers, he said. "It could have been a relatively small amount of explosives placed in strategic points," Romero said.

DETROIT, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- A lead engineer who worked on
New York's World Trade Center Towers expressed shock
Tuesday that the 110-story lanmarks in Lower Manhattan
collapsed after each tower was struck by a hijacked
passenger jetliner.

Constructed and operated by the Port Authority of New York and

to face problems from intense air pressure caused by high-speed

problem of terrorism on high-rises at a conference in Frankfurt,
Germany, last week, Chicago engineer Joseph Burns told the
Chicago Tribune.

Burns said Robertson told the conference, "I designed it for a
(Boeing) 707 to hit it."

"Fire melts steel," Burns told the Tribune, speculating that the
impact from the planes had damaged sprinkler systems in both towers.

"You never know in an explosion like that whether they get cut
off," Burns said.

The World Trade Center was designed by architect Minour
Yamasaki of the Rochester Hills, Mich., firm, Minoru Yamasaki and
Associates, was known for its sweeping use of glass.

Because of the buildings' heights, engineers used tubular
construction of tightly spaced steel columns. The floor trusses
were built across to this central core.

Yamasaki, who died in 1986, also designed the McGregor Memorial
Conference Center at Wayne State University, the Reynolds
Aluminum building in Southfield, Mich., and the 30-story
Consolidated Gas Co. Building in downtown Detroit.

Militants who carried out the 1993 attack on the symbol of
America's financial prowess said they had wanted to bring the New York
tower to the ground.

Near Washington, part of the 6.5 million-square-foot Pentagon
collapsed after the nerve center of U.S. military forces was hit by
a plane, causing a huge fire.

High rises, office buildings, courts, city halls, museums, sports
stadiums and other public buildings were closed coast-to-coast
as a precaution. The Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., the
largest shopping mall in the United States, was evacuated after
the morning attacks.

"While we have not received any threats we believe this is a
prudent precaution," said Maureen Bausch, vice president of marketing
and business development.

The Fitzgerald Theater in Minneapolis canceled a Talking Volumes
Book Club event featuring author Salmon Rushdie. Rushdie, who
was marked for death by Islamic fundamentalists several years
ago, was unable to travel because of the nationwide ground stop
that halted commercial air traffic ordered by the Federal Aviation

Washington was 'warned of hijack risk'
Thu Sep 13 15:21:15 2001

Washington was 'warned of hijack risk'
(Filed: 13/09/2001)


THE American government was warned eight years
ago that the Pentagon and White House were
vulnerable to attack from hijacked jets.

Military adviser Dr Marvin Cetron says he prepared a
250-page report for the US intelligence agencies in
1993 which detailed his concerns - but it was ignored.
"I said ... aircraft could hit the White House or the
Pentagon - making a left turn at the Washington
Monument and running into the White House, or a right
turn and going into the Pentagon," Dr Cetron said.

He added: "They understood and they ignored it, they
took it out of the final draft. I think the reason they
didn't want that published is because they felt they
couldn't do anything about it. It would scare people and
the flying public, which it probably would have, and
therefore why worry about it."

Republican Senator Wayne Allard, a member of the
US administration's armed forces committee, said he
was part of various hearings where the suggestion of
possible attacks from hijacked jets were made. He said
the warnings were similar to the terror attacks which
saw four planes hijacked to deadly effect, but not
exactly the same.

He added: "Obviously it's hard to evaluate the
likelihood of something like ... I think it's a shock to all
of us, even though we talked about various scenarios
that terrorists may use to cripple the United States."

Asked how clear were the warnings he got while sitting
on the intelligence committee he replied: "They weren't
clear, they were just speculations. They were
suggestions of what could happen. "Then you're faced
with what is the likelihood - what's a reasonable
approach to try and defend yourself."
Anti-Attack Feds Push Carnivore
By Declan McCullagh

2:00 a.m. Sep. 12, 2001 PDT

WASHINGTON -- Federal police are reportedly increasing
Internet surveillance after Tuesday's deadly attacks on the
World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Just hours after three airplanes smashed into the buildings
in what some U.S. legislators have dubbed a second Pearl
Harbor, FBI agents began to visit Web-based, e-mail firms
and network providers, according to engineers at those
companies who spoke on condition of anonymity.

An administrator at one major network service provider
said that FBI agents showed up at his workplace on Tuesday
"with a couple of Carnivores, requesting permission to place
them in our core, along with offers to actually pay for circuits and costs."

The person declined to say for publication what the provider's
response was, "but a lot of people" at other firms were
quietly going along with the FBI's request. "I know that they
are getting a lot of 'OKs' because they made it a point to
mention that they would only be covering our core for a few
days, while their 'main boxes were being set up at the Tier 1
carriers' -- scary," the engineer said.

The FBI's controversial Carnivore spy system, which has been
renamed DCS1000, is a specially configured Windows computer
designed to sit on an Internet provider's network and monitor
electronic communications. To retrieve the stored data, an agent
stops by to pick up a removable hard drive with the information
that the Carnivore system was configured to record.

Microsoft's Hotmail service has also been the target of increased
federal attention, according to an engineer who works there.

"Hotmail officials have been receiving calls from the San Francisco
FBI office since mid-(Tuesday) morning and are cooperating with
their expedited requests for information about a few specific accounts,"
the person said. "Most of the account names start with the word 'Allah'
and contain messages in Arabic."

By Tuesday evening, nearly 12 hours after the twin attacks that
crippled Manhattan and left Washington deserted by mid-afternoon,
it was unclear who was responsible. The Washington Post, citing
anonymous government sources, reported that former Saudi
businessman Osama bin Laden appears to be the prime suspect.

In February, U.S. officials claimed that bin Laden had turned to
data-hiding steganography software to conceal communications
with his operatives by means of public websites.

In Washington, use of data-scrambling encryption software is
also frequently mentioned in conjunction with terrorists.
"Uncrackable encryption is allowing terrorists Hamas, Hezbollah,
al-Qaida and others to communicate about their criminal intentions
without fear of outside intrusion," then-FBI Director Louis Freeh
told a Senate panel last year. "They're thwarting the efforts of
law enforcement to detect, prevent and investigate illegal activities."

Those comments, and the prospect of congressional reaction to
Tuesday's terrorist attacks, have prompted some civil libertarians
to fret about possible domestic regulation of encryption products.

A few years ago, one House committee approved a bill that would
have banned any encryption product without a back door entrance
for the federal government. By Tuesday afternoon, at least one
NBC affiliate had interviewed defense expert Jim Dunnigan, who
warned that "PGP and Internet encryption" would be blamed for
the attacks.


(page 2)

"Those of us who value our liberty, even in the face of danger,
will need to be vigilant in the days to come," says Thomas
Leavitt, an online activist who co-founded Webcom.

Other civil libertarians say it's a mistake to believe that the U.S.
government will overreact to Tuesday's disasters.

Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center
said he believes that the better approach is to argue that the
U.S. must not allow a terrorist attack on our form of open
government to succeed.

It's too early to tell whether he's right or not, but by late Tuesday,
operators of anonymous remailers were already so worried
about being conduits for terrorist communications -- or being
blamed for the communications, rightly or wrongly --that they
pulled the plug.

Operator Len Sassaman said in a post to a remailer-operators
list: "I don't want to get caught in the middle of this. I'm sorry.
I'm currently unemployed and don't have the resources to
defend myself. At this point in time, a free-speech argument
will not gain much sympathy with the Feds, judges and general

Remailers forward messages but remove the originating information,
so that the resulting e-mail is anonymized. They customarily don't
keep logs, so if the system works as designed, it should be nearly
impossible for anyone to find who sent the message.


How Will the CIA Explain that Sadam Husein is CIA
How will the CIA explain that Osama bin Laden is a CIA Plant
Tue Sep 11 18:28:41 2001

How will the CIA explain that Osama bin Laden was and is a CIA creation from the Afghan conflict of the 1980s. How does the CIA explain that Sadam Hussein is a CIA product of the 1970's CIA orchestrated Iraqi coup, and Sadam Hussein has always been a personal business partner of George Bush Senior in their clandestine Oil Monopoly even during the staged CIA Gulf War that was used to experiment with exotic diseases and mind control technology on American, Allied, and Iraqi Troops. How does the CIA explain that Khomeini was also a CIA/OSS/KGB, agent and by product of the planned over throw of Iran by the Global Elites. So we the American People Ask, who is behind the CIA, and how much longer are we the American People going to put up with this agency (Conspirators Associated Internationally) of internationalist hit men and criminals who only represent the International Banking Elites while they rob, murder, and heinously experiment on the American Tax Payers who are forced to pay for the CIA's extensive crimes, mass murders, mass mind control activities, and child pedophile programs? How much longer until the American People finally wake up to these Elitist Gangsters? In the mean time, George Bush Senior and sons can blatantly manipulate the American Political System while George Bush Senior and Sons are fully liable for multiple billion dollar bank fraud rippoffs, with the Help of the Mafia, the CIA, and the Elitists Global Banking Hierarchy. How Much Longer. And, don't forget the thousands of CIA crimes, including the entire Vietnam Undeclared War that was a CIA staged and orchestrated Police Action and Diversion in order that the CIA could utilize American young men and women to act as bullet stoppers so that the CIA could take over all South East Asian Narcotics operations for the Global Elites so that the Elites could have complete control over all global drug trade. And, don't forget that the Elites created Communism and they still control all Communism World Wide. Divide the World Down the Middle, and then create planned Political Conflicts between both sides in order so that the Elites Global Banking system can make trillions in war loans and debts from all of the enslaved and participating countries, and economies. Perpetuated Profit as long as the Slave Masses don't figure it out, don't do anything about it, and they are forced to have to go along with it, generation after enslaved and blind generation.


The government knew all along:

Time for the dismantling of the 2nd Amendment.

"All warfare is based on deception. Therefore, when capable, feign
incapacity, when active, inactivity. When near, make it appear that you are
far away; when far away, that you are near. Offer the enemy a bait to lure
him, feign disorder and strike him. When he concentrates, prepare against
him; where he is strong, avoid him.... Pretend inferiority and encourage his
arrogance. Keep him under strain and wear him down. When he is united,
divide him. Attack where he is unprepared; sally out when he does not expect
you. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme skill." -- Sun Tzu,
"The Art of War."

"Gentlemen, Comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about glasnost,
perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for
outward consumption. There will be no significant internal change within the
Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the
Americans and let them fall asleep." -- Mikhail Gorbachev, former President
of the Soviet Union, to the Politburo in November of 1987.

U.S. equipped terror sponsors
Clinton exported NSA-ducking phone, high-tech encryption devices to Syria



By Paul Sperry
2001 WorldNetDaily.com

WASHINGTON -- The dozen or so Islamic terrorists who pulled off the plot to
strike at America's nerve centers in New York and Washington spent months,
if not years, researching, planning and coordinating the surprise attacks,
U.S. security officials say. And they did it completely in secret, using
the world's most sophisticated telecommunications equipment, some secured
by advanced encryption technology that most armies don't have.

Where did they get such state-of-the-art, military-related gear?

First, you have to appreciate the high degree of communications activity
their mission required at each stage.

In researching their targets, the terrorists picked ones relatively easy to
hit at high air speeds, yet ones that would produce big casualties and
provide symbolic blows to American morale.
They had to pick airports close by, with weak security. They had to find
jets with enough heft and wingspan and fuel to cause major damage, yet not
so large that they required extra crew.

The Boeing 757s and 767s they hijacked were big, but all had just two
pilots and no flight engineers, making it easier for terrorists to take the
cockpits. And the heisted jets were from the same family of aircraft,
obviating additional cockpit training.

They also apparently studied passenger traffic patterns of airlines in
order to pick flights with relatively few people aboard. All four flights
had light passenger loads. The Boeing jets have roughly 160-seat
capacities, yet American Flight 11 carried 81 passengers; American Flight
77, only 58; United Flight 175, 56; and United Flight 93, a skeletal 38.

Fewer passengers, fewer heroes to worry about.

More key, the terrorists needed to select transcontinental flights with big
fuel loads to turn the planes into giant petro-bombs. All four flights
were bound for California. They also had to know flight patterns, and how
to blind air-traffic controllers to the hijackings by turning off the
planes' transponders, which send such warning signals, among other aviation

In planning the attack, they had to fashion weapons that they could sneak
past airport security. Transportation Department officials think that they
may have hedged their bets and even planted security people on the inside
at Logan and Dulles airports, so that guards would look the other way when
they came through metal detectors at the terminals.

The kamikaze pilots also had to log many hours on computer flight
simulators with high-level graphics capability, to practice hitting their
targets at full throttle. A Continental Airlines captain, who's flown both
757s and 767s, told WorldNetDaily he thinks they may have even added the
World Trade Center and Pentagon to the simulator's visual database.

"At the airspeed of those strikes, which hit their targets dead on, the
hand-eye coordination demands would be too high for casual flying skill --
with, or without, an autopilot engaged," he said.

They had to practice, moreover, navigating the jets to abruptly change
their course, by as much as 180 degrees in some cases, after take-off.
Flying them at low altitudes was also something they had to work on.

Synchronized terrorists

Finally, in executing their murderous missions, the 12 or so terrorists had
to coordinate their activities, flawlessly, within a roughly two-hour
stretch. And, for the most part, they did. They all got to the airport on
time, they all got through security, they all boarded their flights, they
all hijacked their flights and, with the exception of one group, they all
hit their targets.

Pulling off such a complex plot would have generated an inordinate volume
of communications -- whether by radio, cell phone, land line, fax or modem
-- among the terrorists, among their Middle-Eastern sponsors and among
commercial contacts here and abroad.

But somehow eavesdroppers at the super-secret National Security Agency --
with their billion-dollar satellite "birds" and other surveillance
technology -- were deaf, dumb and blind to the wicked plot.

"The real issue in this tragedy is how the hell were these people able to
plan and coordinate such a strike over a period of months without the NSA
intercepting their signals?" demanded Peter M. Leitner, a senior strategic
trade adviser at the Defense Department.

Leitner, who reviews commercial license applications for exports of some of
the most sophisticated military-related technology, thinks he knows the

"The technology that would allow these terrorists to mask their
communications was given away, hand over fist, by the Clinton
administration," he said in an interview with WorldNetDaily.

Leitner says the previous administration rubber-stamped the shipment of
top-end military-related telecommunications equipment to Syria, which is on
the FBI's list of sensitive countries that pose a threat to U.S. security.

"Syria is a terrorist-supporting nation," he said.
"They provide infrastructure to bastards like [Osama] bin Laden. They
provide backup and support and communications abilities to these terrorist

So what kind of gear has Syria -- and likely bin Laden, by way of Syria --
gotten from America?

Spread-spectrum radios "We're giving them spread-spectrum radios, which are
almost impossible to break into.
We're giving them fiber optics. We're giving them a high level of
encryption. We're giving them computer networks that can't be tapped,"
Leitner said.

Spread-spectrum radios, originally designed for military use only, change
their frequency constantly.

"Bin Laden's cells aren't having any trouble communicating anymore,"
Leitner said.

Bin Laden, the world's No. 1 terrorist and the Pentagon's chief suspect in
Tuesday's attacks, is known to use portable satellite telephones, advanced
encryption cell phones and other encrypted telephony equipment, as well as
secure computer networks -- all compliments of U.S. technology, Leitner says.

"If people are worried about how these people were able to coordinate and
communicate something like this -- which had to be pretty extensively
coordinated -- without it being intercepted, it's because of the crap we've
been selling these people," he said.

"How can you penetrate their networks when you can't even eavesdrop on
their conversations?" he said.

"You can't stop them when they're coming right at your building," he
said. "But, damn it, you should be able to stop them months in advance by
breaking up their networks."

Leitner posits that the NSA wasn't able to detect the Islamic terrorists'
plot because of the "high quality of the communications gear that they've
been acquiring over the last couple of years, thanks to the Clinton
administration's decontrols on advanced telecommunications equipment."

Terrorists' secured telecom gear "makes it infinitely more difficult to get
even early warning signs" about their activities, he said.

Tuesday's attacks took the entire U.S. government, including the
intelligence community, by surprise.

"We had no specific warning of the U.S. attacks," said Sen. Richard
Shelby, R-Ala., ranking minority member of the Intelligence Committee.

Complete surprise

The Pentagon issued an alert of "Threat Con Alpha" the day before the
attack, which meant that no threats were on the horizon. The same alert
was issued the morning of the attack.

"We got no word of anything," Leitner said.

"We weren't warned of anything," another Pentagon official told WorldNetDaily.

Asked Tuesday if he had any inkling of the plot, Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld dodged the question: "We don't discuss intelligence matters."

Three weeks ago, some overseas papers quoted bin Laden saying that a major
strike against the U.S. was coming soon. But there were no
specifics. And bin Laden reportedly sent an e-mail to unknown government
sources three days ago warning holy hell would break out.
But again, he didn't say how, when or where.

Still, it's baffling that the U.S. intelligence community didn't pick up,
early on, any specifics of the complex and long-planned plot through
electronic intercepts and signals intelligence.

But it's actually not that baffling, Leitner asserts, against the backdrop
of loose government controls on dual-use telecom exports.

"I've testified to Congress that it will take serious numbers of body bags
before we wake up to the need to tighten dual-use export controls," he
said. "Unfortunately, we've got them now."

"This is so tragic and yet so preventable," he said. "Now we're going to
have to knock out their [terrorist] camps, just like we had to bomb the
Iraqi's several times now to try to take out the fiber-optics network that
the Chinese are installing in Iraq's air-defense systems."

"Yet, it was the Clinton administration that gave the Chinese the
technology to give to Iraq," he noted.

The Bush administration apparently hasn't woken up, either.

Wake-up call

In June, Leitner was asked by the Commerce Department to OK a new round of
exports of dual-use telecom equipment to Syria. He denied the request, and
was asked to reconsider. He denied it again, arguing in a letter to Karen
Vogel, the Commerce export licensing officer who requested the approval, that:

"Doing so vastly upgrades the C3 and C41 systems of the Syrian military and
Intelligence Services. My concerns are also obviously compounded by the
fact that Syria is one of the foremost state sponsors of terrorism."

Leitner continued: "Since an 'upgraded telecom infrastructure' will also
greatly facilitate Syrian planning, coordination, secrecy and execution of
terrorist acts, as well as direct military communications, I see absolutely
no basis for any position other than a denial."

"The technology that would allow these terrorists to mask their
communications was given away, hand over fist, by the Clinton administration."
-- Peter M. Leitner, senior strategic trade adviser, Department of Defense

Vogel argued in an earlier letter that her request came on the heels of
eight previous approvals of licenses for similar exports to Syria.

"There's still a lot of things inside the government involving national
security that have just got to be changed," Leitner said.

Another senior Pentagon official who specializes in counterterrorism says
his own faith in the U.S. intelligence community has been shattered.

"This full-court press by terrorists blows the hell out of the line that
we've been hearing for years from the intelligence community that if they
try anything big, we'll know about it and warn you.
Anything bigger than a couple of people, don't worry, we'll know about it,"
he said. "Well, I guess they didn't."

Call from US Carrier PROVES gov't had prior knowledge!!

[ -- Go to: info@inforadionet.com
4/19/01 page:

then select UNWO to HEAR THE CALL!]

A U.S. Navy serviceman stationed on an aircraft carrier called his
family in the United States well PRIOR to Tuesday's horrendously
catastrophic events in New York City and at the Pentagon, and ALERTED
THEM that "something big" was about to go down in a major urban area!

Even MORE astounding: This person further noted that the carrier was
being diverted from its previous mission and was heading directly to the
East Coast as a result of the incident that was going to occur!

Beyond the merest shadow of a doubt this proves conclusively that
elements of the U.S. government's intelligence and military sectors HAD
PRIOR KNOWLEDGE that a massive act of terrorism/war was about to be
unleashed against America!


What's more: given the fact that according to information made public in
the New York times on Oct. 28, 1993 it is PROVEN one FBI agent John
Anticev and bureau associates were HEAVILY involved with Islamic
extremists in EVERY STAGE of the bombing of the World trade Center in
1993, providing funds, equipment, supplies, support and training to the
actual perpetrators, we have EVERY REASON to believe the same state of
affairs exists regarding Tuesday's mass atrocities in NYC and D.C.

The Bush Administration and the globalist/NWO factions it's fronting for
NEEDED a massive, earthshaking act of terrorism unleashed upon a major
U.S. metropolitan area, in order to generate and galvanize support among
the people for implementation of martial law conditions within the
territory of the United States, and DRASTIC, SEVERE curtailment of
Constitutional rights and civil liberties.

The destruction, death and devastation wrought in New York and D.C.
Tuesday are in EVERY WAY the BushMob's "burning of the Reichstag."

Feds KNEW what was coming -- and what's more, certain factions clearly
assisted, aided and abetted the actual perpetrators of Tuesday's mass

AGAIN: We now have solid proof, with regard to the content of the call
made by the Navy serviceman to his parents BEFORE Tuesday's events
unfolded, that some elements of the federal government KNEW BEFOREHAND a
major terrorist incident was going to occur!

The Bush Administration must be turned out NOW. They are in EVERY WAY

Explosives Planted In Towers, N.M. Tech Expert Says

By Olivier Uyttebrouck
Journal Staff Writer
 Televised images of the attacks on the World Trade Center suggest that explosives devices caused the collapse of both towers, a New Mexico Tech explosion expert said Tuesday.
 The collapse of the buildings appears "too methodical" to be a chance result of airplanes colliding with the structures, said Van Romero, vice president for research at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
 "My opinion is, based on the videotapes, that after the airplanes hit the World Trade Center there were some explosive devices inside the buildings that caused the towers to collapse," Romero said.
Romero is a former director of the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center at Tech, which studies explosive materials and the effects of explosions on buildings, aircraft and other structures.
 Romero said he based his opinion on video aired on national television broadcasts.
 Romero said the collapse of the structures resembled those of controlled implosions used to demolish old structures.
 "It would be difficult for something from the plane to trigger an event like that," Romero said in a phone interview from Washington, D.C.
 Romero said he and another Tech administrator were on a Washington-area subway when an airplane struck the Pentagon.
 He said he and Denny Peterson, vice president for administration and finance, were en route to an office building near the Pentagon to discuss defense-funded research programs at Tech.
 If explosions did cause the towers to collapse, the detonations could have been caused by a small amount of explosive, he said.
 "It could have been a relatively small amount of explosives placed in strategic points," Romero said. The explosives likely would have been put in more than two points in each of the towers, he said.
 The detonation of bombs within the towers is consistent with a common terrorist strategy, Romero said.
"One of the things terrorist events are noted for is a diversionary attack and secondary device," Romero said.
 Attackers detonate an initial, diversionary explosion that attracts emergency personnel to the scene, then detonate a second explosion, he said.
 Romero said that if his scenario is correct, the diversionary attack would have been the collision of the planes into the towers.
 Tech President Dan Lopez said Tuesday that Tech had not been asked to take part in the investigation into the attacks. Tech often assists in forensic investigations into terrorist attacks, often by setting off similar explosions and studying the effects.

     Office of the Press Secretary
     For Immediate Release August 10, 1999

     The Briefing Room
     2:43 P.M. EDT

MR. TOIV: We're going to start the briefing, but actually, David
is going to pick it up -- he has an announcement.

MR. LEAVY: Thank you, Barry. The United States has designated
Ariana Afghan Airlines under the Taliban sanctions today, blocking all of
Ariana's assets within U.S. jurisdiction and making clear that no U.S.
entity or individual can engage in business transactions with Ariana Afghan
Airlines. These sanctions are in response to the Taliban's continued
provision of safe haven to Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network.
These sanctions are going into place immediately.

Just in way of background, Ariana is the only international
carrier with regular flights in and out of Afghanistan. As such, we're
concerned about the role it may play in ferrying material, personnel and
Finances to the Taliban. As part of our strategy to isolate bin Laden and
his supporters, we'll continue to apply sanctions against him and

The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets and Control,
OFAC, is reviewing reports that some foreign banks, businesses and
individuals, including persons in the Middle East, are acting for or on
behalf of Mr. bin Laden and providing material or financial support for his
violent acts. Should these reports prove true, and if these entities and
individuals do not cease their support to Osam bin Laden, they could face
the same sanctions as the announcement today.

Q What can you tell us about these possible threats of strikes
across the border into U.S. interests in Pakistan?

MR. LEAVY: There was a report yesterday that I would steer you
away from. There's no substance to it. I think, as you all know from
dealing with us, we don't comment on commando raids or special operations,
but I wouldn't give any credence to this particular report.

Q The State Department today said that extremists in
Afghanistan may be planning attacks against U.S. interests.

MR. LEAVY: Yes, the State Department put out, I think,
yesterday, a general travel warning. But I think you're referring to the
Qatari television story.

Q No, no, no, I wasn't. I was referring to the State Department.

MR. LEAVY: I think, as they've done several times in the last
several weeks, given the increased threat from Mr. bin Laden and his
terrorist network, they want to make clear to all travelers overseas to
proceed with caution.

Q What's the practical application of the airline sanctions?
Does that airline operate in the United States?

MR. LEAVY: Yes -- let me just -- the Treasury has identified
about $500,000 so far in U.S. money that would be blocked. Beyond that,
though, Josh, it's really an important signal to send that we will not
allow the infrastructure of these terrorist networks to operate unabated;
that we will take action; that when we have identified businesses or
persons who are affiliated with bin Laden or supporting his network, we
will act.
Just to give you a little bit more, Ariana has regular flights to
India and the United Arab Emirates. We'll be talking with those countries
in the days ahead to apply similar sanctions.

Q Was that half a million dollars?

Q They don't fly in here?

MR. LEAVY: Ariana does have some money in the U.S., which is now
blocked, some assets. And we've identified about $500,000, half a million
so far.

Q But they don't fly in and out of here?

MR. LEAVY: They do not fly in and out of the United States that
I'm aware of. I'll check that, Mara.

Q Do you have specific information that they, in fact, have
done something to supply Osama bin Laden?

MR. LEAVY: The appropriate authorities, both at Justice, State
and Treasury made a determination that -- if you remember about a month
ago, the President signed sanctions on the Taliban, which basically blocked
any of their assets or their business dealings with the United States.
Under that provision and those orders, the appropriate authorities were
looking at additional entities -- they identified Ariana as one that has
supported or is linked to the bin Laden network. They made that
determination over the weekend and we're taking the action today.

Q So you do have specific information that they have helped
supply materials to Osama bin Laden?

MR. LEAVY: We wouldn't be taking the action today if they
weren't affiliated and supporting the bin Laden network and the Taliban. I
don't have any specific examples I'm prepared to go into today, but we
wouldn't be taking this action if there wasn't significant concern.

Q Do we know his whereabouts?

MR. LEAVY: I don't want to comment on his whereabouts right now.
I do know where we want him to be, and that's justice and in New York --
brought to justice. All right.

TOP_VIEW has just conducted a brief yet immeasurably important phone
interview -- set up by a trusted and totally reliable intermediary already
known to us -- with an Air Force Reserve intelligence specialist.

The interview was carried out this evening, over two days after the
incredible death and devastation that took place in New York City and
Washington D.C.

Our Air Force source told us his superiors had activated him at about 10 AM
Tuesday morning.

He absolutely refused to permit us to record the conversation, even though
he was speaking into some kind of electronic gizmo that substantially
altered the sound of his voice; making him sound like Darth Vader with a
serious chest cold. Some portions of his statements were unintelligible, and
he refused to repeat several of these. Although this source was somewhat
taciturn and close-lipped, for the most part he was cooperative in terms of
giving us enough time to transcribe what he was saying. Overall what is
stated plainly and unequivocally is of absolutely paramount importance for
every single person in this nation and the world: certainly among those of
us who value our inalienable human rights and liberties and want them to
remain un-imperiled, un-abrogated and unabridged.

TOP_VIEW: We'd like to hear what you have to say about the events on
Tuesday. First of all, I assume you have knowledge of the events that goes
above and beyond what the public is being told by the media and the

Intel source: That's quite correct.

TOP_VIEW: Can you -- are you able and willing to relay this information to

Intel source: Well, that depends. Some of it. You're going to publish this?

TOP_VIEW: On the Internet.

Intel source: It's essential that nothing which could possibly be used to
identify myself or "**" (our intermediary) is made public.

TOP_VIEW: We totally understand. Completely. That's exactly how it will be,
and --

Intel source: You've known "**" a long time?

TOP_VIEW: For about 6 years, sir.

Intel source: So... he'll vouch for you? (Chuckles) Fire away.

TOP_VIEW: Well... it's becoming increasingly clear that certain federal
government sectors had prior knowledge of the destruction carried out on
Tuesday. Would you concur with this?

Intel source: (unintelligible)

TOP_VIEW: Excuse me? I didn't understand you.

Intel source: Never mind.

TOP_VIEW: Is it true that our government knew what was going to happen?

Intel source: You could say that. Actually there are certain (pause) groups
in our government who pretty much ran the whole show.

TOP_VIEW: Are you saying that there was cooperation and collaboration
between elements of our government and the perpetrators?

Intel source: No. What I'm saying is that these groups (within the federal
government - TV) were the perpetrators of the action, right down the line
from top to bottom.

TOP_VIEW: This is really incredibly shocking, what you're saying here. Did I
understand correctly, that you say elements of the federal government were
the prime force behind these so-called terrorist attacks Tuesday?

Intel source: That's correct. Absolutely.

TOP_VIEW: God, what a horrifying thing to come to grips with! What is your
feeling about this sir, and exactly why are you even talking to us about
this? Are you positive about what you're saying?

Intel source: (laughs) What should I answer first? I would never make this
kind of statement without being fully certain it was factual. My own feeling
is that it's completely sickening. It's repugnant and unacceptable and I'm
completely opposed to what was done. But it's true and we all have to deal
with it. There are forces within our government who are completely
determined to change the structure of our society at the most basic level,
and these are the kind of things they're going to be doing to make sure that
(fundamental changes in our society) happens.

TOP_VIEW: What's going on in the military right now with regard to what's
occurred? Do many military higher-ups know this, and if so what's their

Intel source: (unintelligible)

TOP_VIEW: Excuse me?

Intel source: I said some do know and some don't. Some wouldn't believe it,
just like many citizens wouldn't believe it. There are certainly lots of
conflict going on at the upper levels of the military right now between
people aware of the true facts.

TOP_VIEW: What about yourself?

Intel source: I consider myself to be a patriotic American who believes
strongly in the Constitution. I'll do whatever is in my power to uphold and
defend those principles, and so will many others.

TOP_VIEW: Well that's something I wanted to get to. The primary motivation
for an atrocity of this magnitude would seem to be to soften up the country
for some serious curtailment of civil liberties, in the name of protecting
us from such "terrorist" attacks. I've likened it to Hitler's burning of the
Reichstag in Germany.

Intel source: That's a good comparison. (Unintelligible)... one of the main
reasons the action was carried out Tuesday. There's also other agendas
having to do with control of the Middle East oil fields, and things related
to that (issue).

TOP_VIEW: Well, are people such as yourself in any way prepared to, or able
to, oppose these forces?

Intel source: Speaking for myself, I'd say there's a lot I'm prepared to do
and will do. Speaking to you is one of those things. And there are many more
like me.

TOP_VIEW: Now, how does the attack on the Pentagon figure into this whole

Intel source: I can't discuss that at all.

TOP_VIEW: Can you some time in the future?

Intel source: Maybe. I think I'll need to sign off here soon.

TOP_VIEW: Is there anything else in particular you'd care to say, any advice
or whatever?

Intel source: I'd say that our way of life is facing the biggest threat in
our history, and the enemy is very much within. VERY MUCH WITHIN.

TOP_VIEW: So it boils down to: what happened on Tuesday was an inside job?

Intel source: Absolutely. All the way down the line and to a much higher
level than most of you could ever imagine. There's a very intense struggle
going on within our government like I said.

TOP_VIEW: It's a struggle we're all involved in, sir.

Intel source: That's quite true.

TOP_VIEW: It seems very clear to me that the Bush administration was way
involved in the attacks. Would that be correct? They obviously want to bring
about the exact kind of fundamental social restructuring that you mentioned.

Intel source: It's a good bet. Right now, it's best we cut this short.

TOP_VIEW: Good night and thank you very much for speaking with us.

This concluded our short but vastly significant interview with a patriotic
Air Force intelligence officer.

Folks, we've heard it from the proverbial horse's mouth. Americans are in
the most critical struggle in our entire history, and the enemy is a
deceptive, malevolent and indeed demonic force deeply ensconced within the
very fabric and structure of our federal government, and which also infests
even our news and information sources, our entertainment, our schools and
workplaces and many other aspects of our life and our society.

As our source stated: "the enemy is very much within."
