Odigo says workers were warned of attack

By Yuval Dror


Odigo, the instant messaging service, says that two of its workers received messages two hours before the Twin Towers attack on September 11 predicting the attack would happen, and the company has been cooperating with Israeli and American law enforcement, including the FBI, in trying to find the original sender of the message predicting the attack.

Micha Macover, CEO of the company, said the two workers received the messages and immediately after the terror attack informed the company's management, which immediately contacted the Israeli security services, which brought in the FBI.

"I have no idea why the message was sent to these two workers, who don't know the sender. It may just have been someone who was joking and turned out they accidentally got it right. And I don't know if our information was useful in any of the arrests the FBI has made," said Macover. Odigo is a U.S.-based company whose headquarters are in New York, with offices in Herzliya.

As an instant messaging service, Odigo users are not limited to sending messages only to people on their "buddy" list, as is the case with ICQ, the other well-known Israeli instant messaging application.

Odigo usually zealously protects the privacy of its registered users, said Macover, but in this case the company took the initiative to provide the law enforcement services with the originating Internet Presence address of the message, so the FBI could track down the Internet Service Provider, and the actual sender of the original message

This is interesting. So, instead of contacting the FBI, CIA, NSA or any other American three letter agency, they contacted Israeli security services? Then the Israelis brought in the FBI? Hmmm...weird.

Anyone who recieves this kind of thing will contact agencies of the country he is in, don't you agree?


Odigo, which has a satellite office in Israel, said employees there received pop-up text messages containing advance warning of the attacks but said the IMs did not mention the World Trade Center specifically, or any other targets.

Manhatten......


Odigo, which champions seamless interoperability between IM providers, has about 80 employees, the bulk at its Manhattan headquarters.





He said the employees who received the IM messages were not familiar with the sender. After the attacks, the employees notified Odigo management, who turned the information over to Israeli law enforcement authorities.

The Questions still stands i guess.


Great point griff.

And why Odigo? As you stated, it was not the only (and not even most popular) messaging service that was of Israeli origin.
Edit
What "Manhatten"???? If you will read my quote or the article it clearly says that workers in Israel recieved the message.

If someone sent you a U2U that said there was going to be an attack, would you call the fbi right away?

From what i read (partly in the article that you posted!) the following happened:
Two workers in Israeli office received warnings about something that is going to happen in US (or even New York.) Two hours later planes (or whatever suits you the best) started crashing all over US. Those guys went to their management and they contacted local security and those alerted FBI. I do not know what you find suspicious in actions of all the people involved in the story (except the sender/s of course).

The only thing i find puzzling is the reason why they got it, not their reaction. Also what was in those messages might be interesting.

I admit that does make a difference. At least the angle I was shooting for. Thanks for pointing it out. Now it doesn't look as suspicious as I thought at first.

And this is how Alex Jones presents this story...(Martial Law 9/11)




Odigo admitted publicly... that yes, they got a warning, an Instant Message, hundreds of their employees, in the Towers, and told them, to leave the building, 4 hours before the planes slammed into it. This is on the record and cannot be ignored


And people wonder why some of us think Alex Jones is a lunatic of the first order?

First, the call goes to employees in Israel. Second, it did not say a word about the Towers being a target or even the scope of the attack. Third, Odigo did not have hundreds of employees, let alone hundreds of them in the Towers. BUT, thats how Mr. Jones decided to sensationalize the story.........

I wouldnt believe him if he said the sky was blue.



P.S. And of course, if Im an Israeli citizen living in Israel and I get a message like that....the FBI is the FIRST people I would call...........


(the P.S. was sarcasm for those of you who are deficient in recognizing it)

Yes Ultima, The NWO "Java Division" got the word late on September 10th NOT to take their carts to the WTC complex.

Sweet Jesus this is fresh.

Gee you just have to keep proving how immature you really are and that you cannot have an adult discussion and post evidence.

More unanswered questions, inconsistencies and contradictions. Nothing to question here right???

I am glad they alerted law enforcement so we could learn where those messages originated. That cleared up the mystery right away...oh wait we still don't know who sent that message 7 1/2 years later??? Complete transparency in the investigation.

That is foreknowledge plain and simple.

I am sure there are some here who will claim Osama himself texted the company.

And it is entirely possible they figured out exactly where it came from. Does not mean that the authorities are going to take out an ad in the New York Times to publicize it.

Then again, the individual(s) who sent it, could have masked their IP's....

oh Ultima.. your post about the coffee cart workers are evidence. Evidence the supports another theory.

U2U me if you're interested in that theory.

You going to back up your coffee cart claim with a source?

probably not.

WOW!

Notice that in any thread that mentions ISRAEL's connection to September 11th. 2001 really makes these debunkers mental and childish.

Their tactics to obsefucate the truth is becoming quite transparent to all people.

The childish part is in the way in which it is presented.

It is ok to now say you would have done this or that, so lets look at it again, morning of September 11 2001 some workers working for a company in Israel receive a text message warning them their is going to be an attack on the US.

Pre 9/11 a warning about an attack on the US meant an attack on US interests somewhere in the World? am i right? IE an Embassy or a ship, soldiers based anywhere.

Post 9/11 a warning would also mean it could be inside the US, Nobody really dreamt before 9/11 that a major attack like this was possible anywhere in the World never mind the US itself.

Before 9/11 if you received a message like that you would be in no real hurry to tell anyone, because it would at first appear to be a joke (first impression of anyone IMO) then after time to think, you consider telling someone at least just in case.

After 9/11 you would think it was a joke for a lot shorter time and even if a joke would tell someone almost right away.

Can you see where im going with this?

Its fine for us to say what we would do now, the attack has happened, we know what happened to an extent and we can comment, its so easy for joe blogs to say i would have called yada yada first, but none of us can really truthfully say what you would have done before 9/11 none of us.

Imagine for a second if ATS was around in 2000, and someone came on here like people do everyday with some kind of claim, be it an earthquake, UFO flyover all over the world, the person who did that like now would have had mixed reactions, some would take note, others would rip them for it as happens every day, evidence would be demanded, u2u's sent to mods asking for evidence of who they are etc.

So i ask you to answer with total truth, if on the morning of 9/11 pre attack, you receive a text message warning of an attack on the US, what would you do? and to be honest if you lie your kidding yourself.
