A possible link has been indentified between a CIA Executive and mysterious "put" options bought and sold surrounding the 9/11 Attacks. It is
well-known that stocks for American Airlines and United Airlines experience significant deviations from normal trading in the time frame surrounding
the 9/11 Tragedy. It is now also documented that a high-level Executive for the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) may have known about the attacks.
Did A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard (CIA Executive) help some previous business associates by turning his head when CIA monitoring caused an alert? Nothing
was done to stop the attacks. Was money the motivation?
Between August 26 and September 11, 2001, a group of speculators, identified by the American Securities and Exchange Commission as Israeli citizens,
sold "short" a list of 38 stocks that could reasonably be expected to fall in value as a result of the pending attacks. These speculators operated
out of the Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany, stock exchanges and their profits were specifically stated to be "in the millions of dollars."
Short selling of stocks involves the opportunity to gain large profits by passing shares to a friendly third party, then buying them back when the
price falls. Historically, if this precedes a traumatic event, it is an indication of foreknowledge. It is widely known that the CIA uses the Promis
software to routinely monitor stock trades as a possible warning sign of a terrorist attack or suspicious economic behavior. A week after the Sept.11
attacks, the London Times reported that the CIA had asked regulators for the Financial Services Authority in London to investigate the suspicious
sales of millions of shares of stock just prior to the terrorist acts. It was hoped the business paper trail might lead to the terrorists.
Investigators from numerous government agencies are part of a clandestine but official effort to resolve the market manipulations There has been a
great deal of talk about insider trading of American stocks by certain Israeli groups both in Canada and Germany between August 26 and the Sept.11
attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Lynne Howard, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), stated that information about who made the trades was available
immediately. "We would have been aware of any unusual activity right away. It would have been triggered by any unusual volume. There is an automated
system called 'blue sheeting,' or the CBOE Market Surveillance System, that everyone in the business knows about. It provides information on the
trades - the name and even the Social Security number on an account - and these surveillance systems are set up specifically to look into insider
trading. The system would look at the volume, and then a real person would take over and review it, going back in time and looking at other unusual
Howard continued, "The system is so smart that even if there is a news event that triggers a market event it can go back in time, and even the
parameters can be changed depending on what is being looked at. It's a very clever system and it is instantaneous. Even with the system, though, we
have very experienced and savvy staff in our market-regulations area who are always looking for things that might be unusual. They're trained to put
the pieces of the puzzle together. Even if it's offshore, it might take a little longer, but all offshore accounts have to go through U.S. member
firms - members of the CBOE - and it is easily and quickly identifiable who made the trades. The member firm who made the trades has to have
identifiable information about the client under the 'Know Your Customer' regulations (and we share all information with the Securities and Exchange
Given all of this, at a minimum the CBOE and government regulators who are conducting the secret investigations have known for some time who made the
options puts on a total of 38 stocks that might reasonably be anticipated to have a sharp drop in value because of an attack similar to the 9/11
episode. The silence from the investigating camps could mean several things: Either terrorists are responsible for the puts on the listed stocks or
others besides terrorists had foreknowledge of the attack and used this knowledge to reap a nice financial harvest from the tragedy.

The paper trail continues. It seems we have reached a point where the U.S. and CIA can no longer claim they were "surprised" by the 9/11 attacks.
We had and still have systems in place that sent significant warning signs. The question now comes; "Did we see the signs and not know what they
meant?" or "Did we ignore the signs?"
It seems painfully obvious that at least some agents with the CIA knew something was about to happen. We had signs that two major airlines' stocks
were not trading normally. Were these trade deviations significant enough to cause alert? Many think so. Claims have been made that the links were
too obvious, and that the CIA intentionally allowed the attacks to continue. Would Mr. Krongard allow the attacks in order to protect his prior
Why? Why would a country attack itself, or, allow an attack without defense? Speculation is unending. Perhaps to justify a war. Perhaps to secure
initiate the New World Order. Perhaps to clear airspace for military/alien use. Perhaps to fulfill the prophecy of John Titor.
As with most things, I think the most logical starting point in this investigation is MONEY! We can now begin to look at who profited from the
attacks, and this will lead us closer to the truth and motivation than any other avenue. Was it a Radical Muslim buying "puts" or was it a CIA
Executive? When we get the answer to this question, we will be much closer to knowing who is responsible, and why.
