Iran’s Dirty 9/11 Secrets

Pages: 1 2

It has taken nearly ten years, but the real story of Iran’s direct, material involvement in the 9/11 conspiracy is finally coming to light. And it’s being revealed not by the U.S. government or by Congressional investigators but by private attorneys representing families of the 9/11 victims in U.S. District Court.

Just one week before the 9/11 Commission sent its final report to the printers in July 2004, diligent staffers discovered a six-page classified National Security Agency analysis summarizing what the U.S. intelligence community had learned about Iran’s assistance to the 9/11 hijackers.

They happened upon the document by chance. It had been tucked away at the bottom of the last box in the last stack of classified documents they were reviewing. But it was so explosive that several Commissioners pushed hard to make sure the information it contained was included in the final report, despite intense push back from the intelligence community.

The page and a half section that made the final cut (see pages 240-241) details repeated trips to Iran by 8-10 of the “muscle” hijackers between October 2000 and February 2001. Flying in from Saudi Arabia, Damascus, and Beirut, the future hijackers were accompanied by “senior Hezbollah operatives” who were in fact agents of the Iranian regime.

The information was so explosive that the CIA lobbied hard to get it expunged from the final report, in part because they had detected some of the movements as they were occurring but failed to appreciate their import. “They saw them as travel through Iran, not travel to Iran,” a senior 9/11 Commission staffer told me at the time.

By the time the staffers had read into the 75 source documents on a Sunday morning out at NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, MD, the Commission was pushing up against the end of its mandate and could not do any additional work. The information was so serious and had such clear geopolitical import that it “requires further investigation by the U.S. government,” they concluded. Many of the Commissions and senior staff who were aware of the document find assumed someone else would pick up the ball.

But as attorney Thomas Mellon, Jr. and his colleagues representing Fiona Havlish and other 9/11 widows and family members discovered, no such investigation was ever carried out. Not even the Congressional intelligence committees would go near the subject, despite direct appeals from the Havlish plaintiffs and a review of many of the original still-classified documents cited in the report.

I was engaged by the Havlish attorneys in 2004 to carry out the investigation the 9/11 Commission report called on the U.S. government to handle. We had no governmental authority, hardly any budget, and no access to classified intelligence or intelligence assets. But what we found and made public starting this May is enough to hang a fish. Put simply:

• The Islamic Republic of Iran helped design the 9/11 plot;

• provided intelligence support to identify and train the operatives who carried it out;

• allowed the future hijackers to evade U.S. and Pakistani surveillance on key trips to Afghanistan where they received the final order of mission from Osama bin Laden, by escorting them through Iranian borders without passport stamps;

• evacuated hundreds of top al Qaeda operatives from Afghanistan to Iran after the 9/11 just as U.S. forces launched their offensive;

• provided safe haven and continued financial support to al Qaeda cadres for years after 9/11;

• allowed al Qaeda to use Iran as an operational base for additional terror attacks, in particular the May 2003 bombings in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Key elements of our proofs are in bullet points at the end of this article. For those wishing a more detailed account, here is a partially-redacted affidavit I provided to the Court that traces the Islamic Republic of Iran’s relationship al Qaeda back to the early 1990s.

Panic at CIA

As the Havlish case was getting closer to making its information public last year, certain old guard elements within the CIA went into a panic mode, apparently worried that their failure to act on indicators and warnings in 2000 and 2001 would come to light and ruin their post-Agency careers. I can now reveal that they made several attempts to suborn two of the Havlish witnesses who were located overseas.

In the first attempt, in August 2010, an individual presenting himself as a CIA official, told our witness that the Agency wanted to “break” the Havlish litigation against the Islamic Republic of Iran, and considered the witness’s testimony to be crucial to the lawsuit’s success.

    This is bull%. all of a sudden they found the secrets documents. The agencies would have discovered this years ago if it were true…

    • Ronald W. Carnine

      I hate to tell you this, but secret documents are nothing new in our gov't. Even on the local level top admin. official lie and hide. Our dept. for yrs. took numerous reports of burglaries etc and marked them as unfounded. Why? To keep the required FBI reports from showing an increase in crime. It works the same way at the Fed. level, reports that they want unseen seem to disappear to the bottom of the infinite pages of reports. I could see this happening to the secret documents as they relate to nation of Iran. Iran's president is insane and plots our destruction in any way he can. This is nothing too surprising.

    The Mahdi-ists in Iran have been killing US troops and citizens since the RR administration. Or maybe everyone has forgotten the Iraniac Hostage crisis? There's ample evidence that the Iranian government is heavily involved in global terrorist acts against the US and others it despises.
    What are we going to do about it? Nothing during this administration. Maybe after the election and the entire Intel community is purged of failed leaders like clueless Brennan, we might do something…or at least buy a clue?

    • Holly

      Yes, maybe we could bring back G.W who couldn't understand the difference between Iraq and Iran and bombed Iraq for what Iran was doing. Maybe G.W knew the difference but was betting on stupidity of his base and most Americans not to realize that Iran and Iraq are two different countries. All through his presidency W. protected the real terrorists such as Ghazaffi and Iranian dirty Mullahs and killed innocent people.

      Wrong..Obama supports Iran. If he wanted Iran gone, he would have supported the students in 2009 when they tried to overthrow the government. Nor will he interfere in Syria because he condones their governments. He goes against those governments who pose no danger to us and are in fact friendly to us (Egypt) and we did bring prisoners to Libya for rendition. He takes no action against regimes who are the real threat–Iran and Syria. Siding with the enemy?

      • trickyblain

        Obama is also against sunshine, puppies, kittens and ice cream.

        Note that when Obama "interfered" in Libya, he was demonized by the right. And now he's being demonized for not interfering. They guy ciuld propose that kids be encouraged to exercise and eat right and he'd be demonized. Oh, wait.

      And a "wala' wa bara' to you there Haji.
      The copious evidence against the Mahdi-ist Supremacists in Iran over the last 30+ years speaks for itself. The only thing that jihadist swine understand is lead and fire.

            The British in India were scrupulous in using mutton fat so as to offend neither Hindu nor Muslim. The Mutiny was instigated by wahhabists who went on to found the Deobandi school, which is what trains the elites and jihadists in Pakistan.
            We should reinstate Arthur McArthurs methods of dealing with the Moros, and burn the bodies of any jihadists with a pigs ear in their mouths.

    USA is afraid of attacking Iran, just because of having numerous long range Scud missiles that can destroy Saudi's oil platform, causing the oil price to sky rocket and stay there for long time, because rebuilding platforms take time. Shah of Iran was removed by brainless people in White house, now I want to know how they will remove the evil regime that planted 32 years ago, and let us not forget the good old USA DID change the regime for just sake of poor Iranian people!!! What a joke!!!

  • myohmy

    Our government should assasinate Ahmedinejad instead of trying to bomb their nuke facilities. If you had a neighbor that was trying to kill your family would you try to find his gun and destroy it? No, you'd take him out and solve the problem. Take Ahmedinejad out and if other muslim lunatics take his place take them out one by one until nobody wants that job anymore. And if other muslims attack us for killing their lunatic in charge of nukes send them all to paradise. Allah won't have enough virgis to give all of them their 72. Islam is not a religion, it's an evil cult and it should be banned before the entire world is in another world war. We don't need to send an army to kill Ahmedinejad, a couple of missiles will do just fine.

  • dotherightthing4

    Totally believable. I read the book written by Jayna Davis "The Third Terrorist" about the Oklahoma City bombing. Our government has lied and covered up SO much it is unbelievable. After her LONG investigation she found that Osama bin Laden was NOT financed by the Saudis but by Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria. The real bad guys in the OK bombing were indeed Iraqis from The Republican Guard in Iraq. They were here masquerading as maintenance men. Remember the sketch that circulated afterwards of a Middle Easter man seen at the hotel with Timothy McVeigh–he was real.
    Anyway, I find this totally believable. If they release it and acknowledge it, it means they have to act–it they claim ignorance–they can get away with inaction. See no evil!!

    • Zeidgeist

      In the same way that Libya were NOT behind the Lockerbie bombing. Is was the PLO the codename for the atrocity was "Arafat", hardly a name that would be natural for a Libyan operation. We should speak to Meghrani before he finally croaks as he would have nothing to gain. I think that the Dhimmis of the US and UK governments know far more than we realise.

      • dotherightthing4

        You know, sometimes I feel I don't know what is real anymore. Initially I thought Wikileaks was a bad thing but now I think maybe it is just opening our eyes to the lies and duplicity. From my heart, I tell you, I am an honest person and how man can deal in such evil, lies and double dealing. It just does not compute. How does one live with one's self. I can not wrap my head around any of it. To plan murders.. I read and read but it seems everybody is many faces.

    Unmentioned in this informative article is (Iran's ally) Syria's role in the 9/11 plot. According to a document released by Germany's Chancellor Merkel to a Chicago Tribune correspondant the hijackers stateside made 66 calls to Syria. Timmerman does say that some of them passed through Damascus.. I believe thaf the Assads (father and son) had a hand in the plot as well. What say you Mr. Timmerman?

    It is our killer instincts which must be harnessed if we expect to survive in a war with the Jihadists. Our weapons are only our tools. It is a hard heart that kills. If our killer instincts are not clean and strong we will hesitate at the moment of truth. We will not kill the Jihadists. We will then become dead or enslaved Americans. Because there are a billion Muslims and on a few of us who will fight! Do you understand? This is a deadly game that we must not lose? Enough of this whining and grieving almost 10 years later. Time to increase the Jihadist body count significantly! Start with exterminating Hezbolla and Hamas.

    Excuse me but the 9/11 hijackers trained here in the U.S. And it was bush who allowed his Saudi buddies fly out of the country right after the attacks. Oh, and where are Iraq's WMDs? You people have no shame and the stupidity of your audience has no limit.

    You can also say Iranians are responsible for the following crimes too:
    . Dropping Atomic booms on Japanese cities by US
    . Genocide of 6 million Jewish in WWII by Germany
    . Conducting the largest slavery operation on the earth by US
    But incase of 9/11 Bush knew about it more than everyone else. It was planed by him and was performed by his oil relatives, Saudi Family.

    • 9-11 Infidel

      Nah…That's your story….emphasis on story….The evidence against the Mahdi-ists is overwhelming. You on the other hand are a moron. Please go prattle about elsewhere.

  • News Reader

    Here are some facts;
    1- Fifteen out of Nineteen Hijackers were from Saudi Arabia.
    2-Osama did not need to be financed by any government,his family is very rich.
    3-Timothy McVeigh was from Mid West, not Middle East.
    4-Timothy and Osama both graduated from same college ( HATE COLLEGE)
    4-Jimmy carter is responsible for this mess in today's Middle East, by removing Shah of Iran.( ask Shah's wife, she will tell you who is behind it, Jimmy and his Human rights)
    5-In 2004 the government of president Khatami of Iran had offered to Exchange the family members, friends and relatives of Osama who tried to ran into Iran from Afghanistan for the members of Terrorist group MKO in Iraq. ( MKO has killed few Americans in Iran in 1970s). George Bush ignored the offer.
    5-I dislike politics, and bad reporters with short memories.
    6- I forgot to mention that Iranians were behind of assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 1963. Some body just found some papers which proves that.
    7-Mr. Kenneth Timmerman, what are you drinking these days?

  • socius

    Wow. This is all completely illogical and baseless assumptions. Of course these "private investigators" are smarter than the CIA and Mossad. Lol. Not. It's ridiculous because almost all the points made here are completely untrue. Iran evacuated al-Qaeda from Afghanistan? Al-Qaeda views Iran as an even bigger enemy to them than the united states. Iran captured fleeing al-Qaeda members and was going to turn them over to the united states until they labelled Iran as part of the axis of evil.

    Iran then held many of Osama bin ladens family captive as a deterrent for al-Qaeda attacks on Iran. Iran had also been supporting the afghan resistance movement against the Taliban for countless years before and after the invasion by the united states. There were no Iranians in any of those suicide attacks, nor have their been any as far back as I can recollect.

    This article is filled with so many falsehoods that it makes fox news look like a credible news source in comparison. Lol.

    Reading some of the posts in here makes me sad- really. I am a (degree'd) historian and I realize that most in here are not; I am old now, and know that most in here are not. But the bread crumb trail has been pretty easy to follow
    The rise of the modern jihad dates back to the return of Khomeini to Iran, from France. This was a move, incidentally, aided and abetted by the Carter administration which chose to turn its back on the Shah, who had been a reliable ally. Iran is the original tumor.
    Iran, enthusiastically backed by Russia, is the chief source of the problem in the middle east, and until we wake up to this threat, we, and our allies, particularly Israel, will remain in danger.

    The investigation of Timmerman and his results confirms again the involvement of the Mullahs in 9/11.

    Iranian Resistance was repeating from the first days the involvement of the Mullahs of Iran in 9/11,

    I wrote many posts on FrontPage from 2004.

    the preparation and trainings were done in a base of Passdaran (Qods Forces) some 12 Km from GHOM (the Mullahs Qoranic schools City).

    I remember that in that base the guys were training to injure by the plastic knives (the type of the knives that you get in your air trip during the lunch.

    They were training also to fly only, landing had no importance for the trainees and the instructors.

    Mullah Khatami (the Mullahs President of that time) came to US on September 1997, US administration and Clinton and US State Dept. of Madelin Albright welcomed him to USA and opened the doors of USA to the Iranian Regime with the minimum of precautions.

    Louise Freeh the FBI DIRECTOR of that time was forced to resign because he had found the solid materials of the Iran's involvement in the Khobar Towers bombing of Arabi Saudi where 19 Americans were killed and 72 wounded.

    The 9/11 terrorists traveled to USA (By LA Airport) without no control.

    All the preparations of 9/11 were fulfilled during the Albright-Clinton / Khatami friendly relationship.

    With arrival of GWB the high ranked staffs of State Dept. and CIA and FBI were the same as Clinton's period.

    I remember that anybody who tried to inform USA authorities and USA Embassies about 9/11 was ignored before 9/11 and Grilled and expelled after 9/11.

    Denouncing Iran's hands in 9/11 became a crime in USA.

    I suggest to TIMERMAN to talk to EX FBI Director (Louise Freeh) and Colonel Martins of Pentagon ( Anti-Terrorist EXPERT and WMD expert of US MP).

    You have the best anti-terrorist experts and investigators in your FBI, CIA, and ARMY, they say that they are all short circuited by the influence of State Dept. in different administrations.

    State Dept. files terrorist any non American who persists to prove the involvement of the Mullahs on terrorism and 9/11.

  • matt

    So they could build the bomb using US soldiers as human shields in Iraq and Afghanistan to prevent an Israel strike on their nuclear program, like Opera or Orchard. The false intelligence on the WMD's came from Iraqis that were Iranian agents, who after the fall soon changed sides. Now you know why they are so smug.

    • SAM000

      State Dept is overrun by the Iranian lobbies.
      The Iranian lobbies in the State Dept occupy the key positions and operate very cleverly, they provide the reports and files about the Iran and Iraq without engaging their own responsibility, they subcontracts the studies about Iran and Iraq to the US based companies under the label of "Strategical Studies", in fact those companies belong to Iran's intelligence services.

      One of those lobbies is present now in this forum under the screen name of "NEWS READER".

      If you google "RAY TAKEYH" or "TRITA PARSI" or NIAC you will be surprised, all these persons are Iranian Intelligence's staffs in USA who have privileged access to your government and congress and senate.

    This past Friday night, Judge Andrew Napolitano, on the "Freedom Watch" show
    on the Fox News channel, asked the question, "Has any government employee
    been fired (since 9/11) for performing their job(regarding 9/11) in an irresponsible manner?" He answered his own question, "No." This is a big part of the problem.

Not forgetting of course, the monies, training( Al-Quds, Hezbollah) and arms (EFP's component parts for VBIEDs, IED's, RPGs etc.) supplied by the Mahdi-ists in Iran.

  • sam000

    Ten years after 9/11 the BIG QUESTION is always present.

    9/11 could be AVOIDED or not?

    An small part of the released intelligence demonstrates clearly that 9/11 was an STATE TERRORISM.

    An State Terrorism of this dimension has always multiple actors, The terror commander and terrorized nation.
    the only before-ACTION relationship between these two actors is the "Appeasement".

    Look at the warm relationship of Clinton Administration and Iran's Mullahs.

    Why the high ranked US Officers should repeadedly neglect the CODES?

    Why the High ranked Directors and their administrations should barrage the real investigation.

    Why the High ranked Directors and their administrations should put the maximum pressure on the victim's families who want to find the truth?

    The answer of all these QUESTIONS is, 9/11 was the fruit of USA APPEASEMENT of the Iranian regime and continuation of the same politics till now.
