Getting Away with 9/11

Pages: 1 2

Ten years later, there is still much we don’t know about 9/11. There is shocking evidence that Iran and Hezbollah had a role, and the FBI is still looking for three Qataris who escaped the country. Questions remain surrounding a likely Iraqi intelligence operative and a Saudi family who fled the country shortly before the attacks.

Speculation about Iranian and Hezbollah responsibility for 9/11 began to heat up after the 9/11 Commission Report was released in 2004. According to the report, 8 to 10 of the hijackers transited Iran between October 2000 and February 2001 and the Iranian border guards did not stamp their passports. Senior Hezbollah operatives, including the late Imad Mughniyah, were on some of the flights taken by the hijackers during this preparatory stage for the attacks.

Iran and Hezbollah are being sued by a team of eight law firms for their involvement in the attacks. Much of the case rests upon the sworn testimonies of two intelligence defectors. The first is a former Iranian intelligence officer named Abdolghassem Mesbahi who defected in 1996 and whose information proved Iran’s role in a 1994 bombing in Argentina. He says he had first-hand knowledge of a plan drafted by the regime to use proxies to crash hijacked airliners into targets in the U.S., including the World Trade Center and Pentagon. According to Mesbahi, Iran bought a flight simulator for Boeing 757s, 767s and 777s about 18 months before 9/11, even though it owns no such aircraft.

The second eyewitness is an intelligence defector named Hamid Reza Zakeri, who claims to have worked for a top-secret intelligence office set up under Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s authority. He says that he was in charge of security arrangements for meetings between top Al-Qaeda and Iranian officials in the months leading up to 9/11, including Ayman al-Zawahiri. He defected in the summer of 2001 and brought with him alleged intelligence documents that discuss an upcoming joint attack on the U.S. by Iran and Al-Qaeda.

Former Florida Senator Bob Graham, a co-chairman of the 9/11 Commission, is making accusations of a cover-up regarding the involvement of certain Saudis in the attacks. It has been revealed that a Saudi family in Sarasota, FL, made a speedy getaway only two weeks before the 9/11 attacks, leaving behind their belongings and a stocked refrigerator. A follow-up investigation by the FBI found that the Saudis at the home, Abdulazzi and Anoud al-Hiijjii, had been in communication with three of the hijackers who lived nearby, including Mohammed Atta. The FBI also connected them to at least 11 other suspected terrorists. They fled the U.S. for Riyadh, where Aboud al-Hiijjii’s father, Essam Ghazzawi, lives. Both Ghazzawi and Abdulazzi’s names were known to the FBI before the attacks for their possible involvement in terrorism financing. The FBI says the case is closed and the couple was exonerated.

Senator Graham says that his commission was never informed of the finding by the FBI. He says that the FBI also did not tell the 9/11 Commission about how an employee of a Saudi government contractor, Omar al-Bayoumi, sponsored the stay of two of the hijackers in the U.S. He moved to San Diego shortly after two of the hijackers arrived. He received a raise and then paid for their apartment, introduced them to other Saudis and even set up their flight lessons. Al-Bayoumi reportedly sponsored them partly from an account connected to the wife of the Saudi ambassador to the U.S.

    Being that Iran and Saudi Arabia are the greatest state sponsors of jihad terrorism on earth, why wouldn't they have been involved with the greatest jihad terrorist attack against America, is what I've thought over the years. Check out my cartoons on Iran and our 30 + year bipartisan appeasement of them.

    Overlooking the 9/11 attack was egregious blunder of the US intelligence indeed. However the shameful reaction (or rather inaction) of the US Government was even more egregious if not treasonous.

    With every new article it is getting clearer, that the main concern of the US government was not to promptly punish the enemies who dared to attack the then world super power with such a mega-act of war. Nor to win and destroy the enemy swiftly. Nor even to name the enemy correctly. Not at all.

    The main concern of the US government was to mislead American people about the real enemies, and to deny the very fact of the global war triggered by the 9/11. The cowardice of the government and adherence to old cosy relationships with Saudis, Yemen, and other islamic nations took precedent over the duty to protect the nation and to win the war on islam swiftly. And "swiftly" meant to nuke Mecca and Medina already on 9/12/2001.

    The rest is the history… The history of denial and appeasement instead of the victory and 1000 years of peace…

    My book, "Satan's Trinity: Hitler, Stalin & Muhammad, is available at For the first time in history "HSM" appear together on a book cover. The idea behind the book is to make headway against the ludicrous idea that Muhammad should be conjoined with any religious leader/founder. This book uses the specific names of Hitler and Stalin to efficiently identify the nature of Muhammad and by extension Islam. It compares the personalities and approach of each man to such categories as; war, peace, sex, torture, slavery, women, their respective childhoods and deaths, the critical affects of geography and timing, each man’s anti-social and narcissistic personalities.

    Well, Iran MIGHT have be somehow involved, but we don't know. The main point is, we had no way of knowing given the BUSH/CHENEY myopic focus on Iraq which, by they way, happens to be Iran's mortal enemy. The war of ultimate distraction.

    That little bitty country will again have to show us how. They did it 35 years ago at Entebbe and they'll do it again soon in Iran.

    That Little Bitty Country
    Showed Us How C. 1976

    I’d been wondering what had happened to our world
    As if someone turned it upside down and got it all unfurled
    Any bum who had a gun could have his day
    And all the sheep in leader’s clothes would look the other way

    But that little bitty country showed us how
    You don’t talk to bullies, you don’t bow
    You move like a man and you mow’em down
    The Rescue at Entebbe is renowned

    The bullies with their guns took the plane
    They had grenades and acted bold with blazing eyes, insane,
    The innocent a board were bound for France
    They had no chance

    But that little bitty country showed us how
    You don’t talk to bullies, you don’t bow
    You move like a man and you mow’em down
    The Rescue at Entebbe is renowned

    The bullies made demands, acted tough
    A hundred souls they herded in a hanger, handled rough
    With not a friend between, a thousand leagues away
    That little bitty country decided what to do that day

    Yes that little bitty country showed us how
    You don’t talk to bullies, you don’t bow
    You move like a man and you mow’em down
    The Rescue at Entebbe is renowned

    Across the sea we celebrated in the sun
    200 years since we had dealt with bullies and had won
    While we rejoiced and waved our flags, they flew their planes at night
    They did what seemed impossible, they saved their kin; they won their fight…
    That little bitty country showed us how.

    It's common knowledge that the Bin Laden family

    when all flights in the country were grounded.

    "The 9/11 attacks and intelligence failures in Iraq showed the U.S. intelligence community to be broken" So our intelligence service just got broken as if it was like a car or a computer or something? That's an oversimplification that is impossible. The more likely explanation is that our intelligence agencies were sabotaged from within. Will we ever get the truth? I think not. Both our political parties are what's broken and corrupt. At the top there isn't much difference between them. We're goiing to have to elect some average citizens with real patriotism and courage to break the system of secrecy and lies from the people running our government at this time. We'll never get the truth from them until we vote them out of office and arrest them. The things we are seeing happening around us today could not possibly happen without assistance from high government offices. We see thing every day that defy common sense. Are we to believe our leaders are just plain stupid? No but they believe we are stupid. All career, establishment politicians need to go. We need a government composed of WE THE PEOPLE, not career politicians.

    • aspacia

      myohmy, there were huge intelligence failures. Our government was warned by the FBI agent ONeil (sp) numerous times, but like the UN we want the oil to the peril of our citizens.

    I always figured the Bush administration was not exactly truthful regarding all the players of 911 and the real agenda for the Iraq War. Maybe the Saudi connection is a real smoking gun of a coverup by all concerned.

    Those who perpetrated the attacks on American buildings on 9/11 are not only evil for what they did, but also for sending men to kill themselves doing so.

    The subject the government and the news media always deliberately avoided like the plague subsequent to the 9/11 jihad attacks was the fact that without millions of Muslim non-violent stealth and deceptive jihadists already living in the USA as a convenient fifth column with their thousands of mosques and madrassas, the 9/11 jihad attacks would have been completely impossible. Thus, there was definitely a concerted effort made by the government and the news media to attempt to control perceptions and maintain the status quo, and whoever is behind it are incredibly incompetent useful idiots.

    It's also kind of funny that all members of Congress sound like pre-programmed robots when discussing Islam and our so-called misnamed “war on terror,” as they all conspicuously use the same exact talking points and they also all adhere to the manifestly false paradigm whereby Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, which also underscores our two fantasy based nation-building missions in Afghanistan and Iraq that inevitably turned into the two biggest strategic blunders ever in US history.

    In any event, the logical thing to do post 9/11 wasn't to double the size, scope, and power of the federal government and usurp Americans heretofore constitutionally protected rights like Dhimmicrats on steroids, as growing government isn't the solution to anything much less protecting the homeland from jihad. The logical solution instead was to outlaw Islam on the grounds that it is incompatible with all other cultures and then to ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP, as zero Muslims living in America as a subversive fifth column translates into zero jihad attacks. Indeed, all the massive expansion of the federal government has managed to accomplish besides balloon the national debt, was to create a false sense of security so that we could continue accommodating mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage.

    Indeed, Congress is currently appointing commissions to figure out ways to slash federal spending, why is no one suggesting outlawing Islam, banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage ASAP, and then dismantling the immense Department of Homeland Security and the National Intelligence Directorate, which are both incompetent jokes, by the way, as a way to cut federal spending?
