Dear ATS 9-11-2001 Experts,

Below is the link to a recent news story that totally dumbfounds me.
Why was a whopping $5,000,000 reward paid to a 9/11 "Tipster"
who didn't do anything to prevent the attack. Usually a tipster is
someone who provides information that allows officials to prevent
a crime from being committed?

www.msnbc.msn.com...

Can someone tell me what this flight instructor did to deserve
so much money? I've read the story twice and can't figure out
what major attack he prevented with his "Tip". Thanks in advance
for any input/help. -CareWeMust

I'd call it the "feelgood spin" or "look daddy we are getting the terrorists". It's a propaganda that will become more obvious as the real truth of 9-11 unfolds...and it is unfolding faster now than I ever thought it could. So just keep a look out for these feelgood spin stories that will arise just around the time that something else might come into play.

Also it is a propaganda to feel good (and be rewarded with big bucks) if you dob in people. Just like "they" want you too.

I've also discovered some of the things, can I get reward, too?

Thanks

Now why do I get the feeling that the government wanted that news leaked? Could it be so other people will dream of hitting the jackpot with a tip? This could increase the snitch factor a lot. And it would justify arrests based on supposed tips.

Hmmm?????

Wow, that almost seems like some sort of twisted joke.

We have all these heroes who worked on the pile who are dying painfully and getting squat whilst some smart ass grass off in Minnesota gets 5 big ones.

I suppose $5million isn't much to the U.S. Government. But geezz..talk
about being in the right place at the right time. All this instructor did was
to teach a terrorist how to fly a plane and then turn him in to the Feds.
Would another plane have been hijacked on 9-11 if this Zacarias
Moussaoui character had NOT been in U.S. custody on that day? If so,
then I'd say that a reward was deserved.. but 5 million dollars?

LOL, I was getting excited about receiving the $1,200 tax rebate this
Summer, until I read this story. Now, I'm wondering if I should become
a Terrorist Hunter in my spare time. It seem to pay VERY well if you don't
mind waiting a few years for your reward.

I wonder if Odigo is eligible for the 9-11 Tip money a couple of their employees got warnings two hours before the attack? That was confirmed by Odigo, then the story vanished.

$5M should be a big deal to all taxpayers. It is our money being wasted, which could be put to far better us for our own citizens' benefit.

Is that same "flight instructor" alleged to train "Hani Hanjour" at the same time? Is that the same "flight instructor" stating Moussaoui told him he was going to run planes into tall buildings, but had no problem with "Hanjour", who he claimed had little to no English comprehension, but was going to learn how to fly a real 767 by strictly flight simulator?

This is surreal. This must be what twilight zone feels like.

OrionStars, that might be a genius of a connection drawn there man. Wow that's heavy. Do we know who this dude is?

so where's the $-dollar-two-ninety-eight, for being the 'tipster' that alerted
the Phoenix, AZ, FBI that groups of young middle eastern men were taking flight training at a host of Arizona flight schools...
and a few could use that knowledge for zealot acts of commandeering planes?

this 'tip' was mailed in April-May 1995,
so when did this minnesota flight instructor sound his concerns?? before or after the Phoenix 'tip' or even around or after the Sybil Edmond drama... ?

I agree Insolubrious

This schmuck gets $5 million and the first responders continue to die.
No help from the government.
They are the real heros of 9/11,not some jackass who picks up a phone.
But then again,the first responders dying might very well be what this sorry excuse for a government wants in the first place.With them outta the way,theres nobody left to tell the truth about what they saw that day.
This is just disgusting and a slap in the face to the first responders.

Here is an earlier article for comparison. It does not mention the name which is highly strange in this particular case. If he did not testify in court, at which time he would identified as a witness in a court of law, that immediately raises a metaphorical red flag the size of the Titanic. That meant the defendant did not have the opportunity to confront his accuser. That is illegal:

www.prisonplanet.com...

"Eagan flight trainer wouldn't let unease about Moussaoui rest
Greg Gordon
Star Tribune
Published Dec 21, 2001

The still-unidentified flight instructor became wary of Moussaoui immediately, according to Minnesota Rep. Jim Oberstar and others with direct knowledge of the briefings."

Orion Stars, it used to be illegal but not any more. They have done away with the writ of habeas corpus. I can't remember the # of the bill but it did pass, I think last spring.

You're right about that, it was 'suspended' but I think it was a defacto result of an executive order rather than legislative, I could be wrong but there's been a couple threads about it in the last year or so on the site.

If that is true, there goes everyone's constitutional rights to due process. No one can those rights away, unless the true government of this nation, we, the people, allow it.

This is a pretty fishy story.

Maybe this was some kind of a payoff?

They might have paid the guy off for something, and then put it in the news so that it looked like a legit money transfer.

No matter what, it just seems a bit wrong.

That was a great post. I agree with the Twilight Zone thing.The TZ is normal compared to "modern" life. FBI snitches get paid dont they! Hell for that kind of money I will wear a wire on my grandma


WAIT! Just had a idea..........Convert to Islam and snitch on ANYBODY with crazy plans or ideas.....I will pray 5 times a day for 5 million I will pray to Big Bird or whatever.....if you can snitch on enough people and keep a record somehow at least one will get in trouble..then CHA CHING$$$$

One purpose of this story could be to convince the people in the "they were military pilots and their were no hijackers" camp that there really was hijackers. Ofcourse I tend to be in that camp myself and Im still not buying.

The witness did not accuse the man of any crime at all.

I agree that men that were working at the pile need MUCH more attention. Why is this man a schmuck?
Clarence Prevost is a 69 year old flight instructor for Pan Am Inter. Flight Academy.

He was one of MANY people that alerted the FBI to Moussaoi's wish to fly jumbo jets.

Why was he the only one paid by the "Rewards for Justice" program? Not sure...but there were two others that were credited in tipping off the FBI.
(Tim Nelson & Hugh Sims)

Sims claimed that Prevost wasnt there, and the Nelson family is also not thrilled that Prevost got the 5Mil. (i;d be pretty pissed too)

It that in itself a conspiracy? No. Both Sims and Nelson were honored by the Senate back in 2005.

You can read it as much as you want, but will never figure it out..
That is unless you spend 5 minutes with google.

Zacarias Moussaoui was captured August 16, 2001. He recived many hours of flight training, incluiding flights in a Boeing 747 simulator(one of the largest commercial jets in the world). Furthermore he had a self-admited connection to the 9/11 attacks.

Could it be he was trying to crash one plane on another building? If so, I find it fair that the instructor, that noted and reported Moussaoui's behavior to authorities, gets some sort of reward.

Is $5M fair? Why not?
Do Tim Nelson and Hugh Sims deserve money as well? I don't know, maybe someone here knows the details of what exactly happened. Maybe they deserver $5M each as well. But the fact that they don't get any money shouldn't be a reason for the other flight instructor not to get any money either..
