Singh was hired as a consultant for J.P. Morgan-Chase to develop the next generation of business architecture enterprise software. The software she was seeking to implement at J.P. Morgan-Chase, one of the largest financial institutions in the world, was specialized, cutting-edge risk architecture software, that would essentially be artificially intelligent and capable of scanning through the millions of transactions taking place across the J.P. Morgan-Chase institution in real time, monitoring these transactions for suspicious activity such as rogue trading; and would then be able to alert the proper people within the J.P. Morgan institution to the problem; and potentially even stop the transactions from taking place. The importance, sensitivity, and sophistication of any such software necessarily led Ms. Singh to seek out the true leaders in the enterprise architecture software industry. Her research and due diligence into the issue, led her to a company called Ptech.
PTech’s clients included some of the most sensitive organizations and agencies in the United States government, including NATO, The U.S. Armed Forces, Congress, The Department of Energy, The Department of Justice, The FBI, Customs, The FAA, The IRS, The Secret Service, and the White House.
Likewise, the interview that we are about to present with Indira Singh gives a more informed, more detailed, account of what was really taking place on 9/11, and the software that was used to help bring that about. This is an extremely important interview for anyone interested in the serious, deep research into 9/11, and is an excellent starting point from which to begin a deeper investigation of that day.
Indira Singh: Well, they came a little late. Immediately there were some issues with how the day would proceed. For instance, they showed up without the agreed-on software in hand. The most important thing about it is that their chief scientist, Dr. Hussein Ibrahim, came. He is an Egyptian-American and he had a very good reputation in the field, very bright; someone you would like working with, very knowledgeable. But they had showed up without the software.
What I had done was I slated a work station to get off the net. After all, we were testing whether this software would meet our criteria, and if I had said it did, then that would be a big deal if it subsequently could not. So, I needed to start with an out-of-the-box version of PTech.
They did not bring that, and Dr. Ibrahim said that is not a problem. We can develop the demo on his laptop. If you know anything about these things, that is a No-no because at the end of the day he is walking out the door and I do not have anything; and he is walking away with enough of our thinking about doing operational risk.
Operational risk is about how to spot bad things that are going on in a financial institution; things like rogue trading, money laundering, and so on and so forth. It is very subtle. Our intellectual property, at least what J.P. Morgan was hiring me for, was to think, innovatively out-of-the-box in the next generation, how do you proactively design a blueprint to spot these things? That is pretty big.
These people are definitely smart enough to get an idea: “Oh, they are thinking of going down this road.” That is a big deal. I was your “risk” person so I am very aware of not to expose our intellectual property or that of the company I am consulting for. I am very protective of that.
So, they showed up without the software and that was a huge enough red flag that I began paying attention to them. A couple of the things went on and within half an hour I just walked over to the same people who had recommended them and began calling.
I said to one of them, I have the PTech people here, and the reaction was not the reaction I would have ever expected. It was, “What are they doing onsite?”
I said, you recommended them, and they said, “No, you should have come through an American distributor.”
I said, no, J.P. Morgan reserves the right to work directly with the company. And, besides which, they are a preferred vendor of IBM: their preferred vendor program. That is the way we work. We do not work for small distributors. If we are going to go with this software as a standard, we are going to go right to the source and make the agreements there.
So, I said, what is the problem? Basically, this person said, “Do not let them out of your sight.” That is when my stomach sank.
You have to understand how all of a sudden I am beginning to see these people in a different way, because when they said, “Do not let them out of your sight,” I have a Middle Eastern company there and we are taught not to discriminate and that was not something I was about to do – and to prove that they were there being evaluated, so that is never going to be a bone of contention. Although later, people made that an issue.
But if I had a problem working with a Middle Eastern company, they would have never been there in the first place, much less before Ground Zero closed. I had no problem whatsoever having them up there. I liked the idea.
Bonnie Faulkner: What do you mean PTech was a Middle Eastern company?
Indira: That is what, subsequently, was revealed in the phone call: that their financier, their funders, their investors were all Saudis. And I said, so what?
They said, “One Saudi has been placed on the U.S. terror list October 12, 2001.”
It got very quiet, and I said, you better have proof of that because having thrown that into my lap now, this is not something that I can ignore. I have to follow up on it. This is not something I can ignore, pretend would go away, or have someone else handle. This is risk management; the highest levels of one of the largest banks in the world. It is my responsibility to deal with this and I said, how can I get proof of this?
That is when they started saying, “You need to talk to a Jeff Goins,” who was one of the only three people in PTech who knew of this relationship, as he was that well-hidden within PTech. So I subsequently called Jeff Goins and I said if this is true, did you not report this? PTech is a private company so this relationship would have been privy only to those on the inside.
I said, did you report it anywhere, that someone who has been placed on the U.S. terror list is key funder – angel investor – to a company whose software is utilized at the highest levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in this country, including the Secret Service, the FBI, the Department of Defense, the House of Representatives, the Treasury Department, the IRS, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Air Force, and last but not least, the Federal Aviation Administration?
Remarkably enough, considering the bombshell information provided by this corporate whistleblower, Indira Singh, about this company which actually operated in the basement of the FAA with complete and total access to every operational detail including their management of interoperability systems with NORAD, that could have directly affected the response of NORAD on 9/11. Absolutely nothing has resulted from the FBI investigation of this company and its links to terror.
Again, the importance of all of this information cannot be underestimated. Special Agent Robert Wright said he was investigating a company with 26 subsidiaries and when he was referring to that, he was referring to BMI, the large organization which had PTech as one the jewels in its crown. It later came out that the head of the 9/11 Commission, Governor Kaine, actually sold the piece of property in New Jersey through BMI, Inc. What does it mean that Robert Wright’s investigation into BMI and PTech and the global terrorist financiers was “shut down”? And that the person who was appointed to head the 9/11 Commission, after Kissinger did not make the grade with the 9/11 victims’ family members, actually had dealings with that company? For more information on that, please look into FBI agent Robert Wright, and the claims that he made in September 2002; that the FBI was continuing to protect terrorists from criminal investigations.
Exhaustive investigation has lead to the uncovering of a massive laundering and profitting of drugs, and child sex trafficking. In the 80's and early 90's there was a very large child sex ring investigation that led straight to the top rungs of the white house, wherein well known politicians were sexually abusing kids and using drugs at private parties in the 80's. It reached the front page of the Washington Times, as well lead to a large investigation and subsequent coverup. Proof exists that money that was being used to front the "Freedom Fighter" muhjahadeen (later to become al Qaeda) and the Nicuraguan contras was from drug and child sex trafficking.
...Epstein's longtime corporate attorneys, Darren Indyke and Jeffrey Schantz, have hired criminal defense attorneys, according to The New York Times. A Yahoo Finance investigation reveals Indyke’s and Schantz’s deep involvement in Epstein’s business transactions and their personal relationships with the disgraced financier. Our findings suggest that Epstein was by far the lawyers’ biggest client. In fact, we were unable to find records of their work with any clients other than Epstein or his associates. Indyke’s signature in particular spans across numerous filings involving Eptein’s foundations, trusts, entities, and business dealings.
Indyke, a 54-year-old Long Island native, has been by Epstein’s side since at least 1995, according to public records. Indkye’s name appears on charitable filings, real estate records, trademark filings, and other business matters related to Epstein and his inner circle.
He has also done work for Wexner and for the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who has been accused in civil lawsuits of enabling Epstein’s exploitation of young girls. (She has not been criminally charged and denies wrongdoing.) Indyke also signed a deed that certified the sale of a Palm Beach home that had belonged to the late Arnold Paul Prosperi, an associate of Epstein’s who visited him frequently in jail.
The day Epstein went to jail in July 2008, Indyke himself was there to visit — he visited his client at least 38 times over the 13-month period, according to jail logs.
The documents that bear Indyke’s and Epstein’s names speak to where the latter hoped to exert or build his influence and how Indyke helped Epstein do so. Indyke has been involved with virtually all of Epstein’s business dealings in the last two decades — his name appears as the treasurer and vice president of Epstein’s three most prominent nonprofits: The C.O.U.Q. Foundation, Gratitude America Ltd., and the J. Epstein Virgin Islands Foundation, also sometimes known as Enhanced Education. The latter two charitable giving organizations are registered in the U.S. Virgin Islands, while the C.O.U.Q. Foundation, defunct since 2012, was based in New York State.
The foundations' giving records show donations to colleges, research foundations, and arts organizations. Other beneficiaries include the Clinton Foundation, Friends of the Israel Defense Forces, and the Edge Foundation, an educational research organization that recently scrubbed Epstein from its website. Indyke was listed as the treasurer of Gratitude America, which received a $10 million donation from an entity tied to private equity billionaire Leon Black of Apollo Management, according to a 990 form.
During Indyke’s 20-plus years with Epstein, he has also been connected with other associates of the now-deceased financier. He’s on documents connected to Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s former girlfriend, as well as Les Wexner, the L Brands CEO whose money Epstein managed. Indyke has also been tied to Lesley Groff, a longtime Epstein assistant, as well as Arnold Paul Prosperi a disbarred attorney who visited Epstein multiple times in jail. Indyke’s name appears as a trustee on Maxwell’s nonprofit, the Max Foundation, which made small donations from 2002 to 2010 but has been largely dormant in recent years.
The March 31, 1995 issue of the Palm Beach Post reported Epstein was one of 14 guests invited to Clinton’s fundraising dinner at Perelman’s Palm Beach home Casa Apava. After a full day of campaigning in Florida and a round of golf, the article stated, Clinton arrived at the mansion “on an island that reaches from the ocean to the Intracoastal” for the “three-hour dinner.” Among the guest list: singer Jimmy Buffett (who was a late addition), Miami Vice actor Don Johnson, actor Michael Douglas’ then-wife Deandra, DNC co-chair Don Fowler, business executive Bob Kanuth, and Clinton’s college friend and the dinner’s organizer Paul Prosperi. To attend, the Palm Beach Post reported, each guest donated $100,000 to the DNC.
Clinton’s Monday statement also insisted he only took “a total of four trips” with Epstein in 2002 and 2003—to Europe, Asia and Africa—“which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation.” During “every leg of the trip,” Clinton said, he was with staff, foundation supporters, and Secret Service agents.
Epstein was visited by Clinton college pal Arnold Paul Prosperi at least 20 times in Palm Beach County Jail while he was serving time for procuring an underage prostitute. Prosperi reportedly ran Clinton’s campaign for student body president while at Georgetown University and later went on to raise funds for him.

Almost a decade after Jeffrey Epstein was first accused of preying on young women, he still had access to the inner sanctum of Apollo Global Management. Leon Black, Apollo’s billionaire chairman, met with the financier from time to time at the company’s New York offices, and he allowed Epstein to pitch personal tax strategies to the firm’s executives, according to people familiar with the matter.
Epstein cultivated a number of prominent Wall Street figures over the years. Yet his association with Black stretches back more than two decades and ran deeper and longer than even some at Apollo initially believed. For instance, in 2015, Black dispatched Apollo co-founder Marc Rowan to attend a meeting at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion with Edmond de Rothschild Group to discuss how the two firms could work more closely, two people said. Ariane de Rothschild and Cynthia Tobiano represented the European banking dynasty at Epstein’s home, the people said, though no follow-up meetings or deals ensued.
Epstein and Black have been acquaintances since at least the early 1990s. The relationship deepened as Black became one of the wealthiest and most powerful people in finance. Black is worth $6.5 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, having built Apollo -- along with Rowan and Josh Harris -- into one of the world’s largest private equity firms. The company reported that it raised more than $12 billion in the second quarter, bringing assets under management to about $312 billion.
