Who needs this memo when, as Micheal Ruppert writes:
As reported in the respected German daily Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung (FAZ) on Sept. 13, the German intelligence service, the BND, warned both the
CIA and Israel in June of 2001 that Middle Eastern terrorists were planning to hijack commercial aircraft to use as weapons to attack important
symbols of American and Israeli culture.
The story specifically referred to an electronic eavesdropping system known as Echelon, wherein a number of countries tap cell phone and electronic
communications in partner countries and then pool the information. The BND warnings were also passed to the United Kingdom.
According to a Sept. 14 report in the Internet newswire online.ie, German police, monitoring the phone calls of a
jailed Iranian man, learned the man was telephoning USG intelligence agencies last summer to warn of an imminent attack on the WTC in the week of
Sept. 9. German officials confirmed the calls to the USG for the story but refused to discuss additional details.
According to a story in Izvestia on Sept. 12, Russian intelligence warned the USG that as many as 25 pilots were training for missions involving the
crashing of airliners into important targets.
In an MSNBC interview on Sept. 15, Russian President Vladimir Putin stated he had ordered Russian intelligence to warn the USG "in the strongest
possible terms" of imminent assaults on airports and government buildings before the attacks on Sept. 11.
Conclusion: From just these five press stories, then, the USG had received credible advance warnings, some from heads of state, that commercial
aircraft would be hijacked by as many as 25 hijackers at airports, with Boston a strong candidate, during the week of Sept. 9…
No known preventive measures were taken.
The documented pre-Sept. 11 insider trading that occurred before the attacks involved only companies hit hard by the attacks. They include United
Airlines, American Airlines, Morgan Stanley, Merrill-Lynch, Axa Reinsurance, Marsh & McLennan, Munich Reinsurance, Swiss Reinsurance, and Citigroup.
Throughout the world the independent media organizations have done an outstanding job of picking up and reporting on independently published stories
which the major media overlooked. One of the most outstanding examples of this was a July 16, 2002 piece posted at the web site of Portland Indymedia
(www.portland.indymedia.org) that reproduced the following short article originally found at The Memory Hole.
“NPR interview on 9-11 confirmed attack was ‘not entirely unexpected.'
“It's certainly one of the most disturbing and important indications that the government knew the attacks of
September 11, 2001, were coming. On that morning, National Public Radio (NPR) was presenting live coverage of the attacks on its show Morning Edition.
Host Bob Edwards went to a reporter in the field—David Welna, NPR's Congressional correspondent—who was in the Capitol building as it was being
evacuated. Here is the crucial portion of Welna's report:
”'I spoke with Congressman Ike Skelton—a Democrat from Missouri and a member of the Armed Services
Committee—who said that just recently the Director of the CIA warned that there could be an attack—an imminent attack—on the United States of this
nature. So this is not entirely unexpected.'
Ms. Rice perjured the 9/11 Commisson and the American people.
There will be another 'terrorist' attack and the US government will suspend the election...
September 2001 was a repeat of 1933...
