Berlin -- In Germany, where war plans for Afghanistan were already being discussed in July and where several of the "Arab hijackers" lived and studied, intelligence experts say the terror attacks of September 11 could not have been carried out without the support of a state secret service.
Eckehardt Werthebach, former president of Germany's domestic intelligence service, Verfassungsschutz, told AFP that "the deathly precision" and "the magnitude of planning" behind the attacks of September 11 would have needed "years of planning."
Such a sophisticated operation, Werthebach said, would require the "fixed frame" of a state intelligence organization, something not found in a "loose group" of terrorists like the one allegedly led by Mohammed Atta while he studied in Hamburg.
Many people would have been involved in the planning of such an operation and Werthebach pointed to the absence of leaks as further indication that the attacks were "state organized actions."
"Ninety-five percent of the work of the intelligence agencies around the world is deception and disinformation," Von Bülow said, which is widely propagated in the mainstream media creating an accepted version of events. "Journalists don't even raise the simplest questions," he said adding, "those who differ are labeled as crazy."
Both Werthebach and Von Bülow said the lack of an open and official investigation, such as congressional hearings, into the events of September 11 was incomprehensible.
AFP asked Von Bülow about the Taliban's ban on opium production: "Seventy percent of the drug trade is licensed by the intelligence agencies," Von Bülow said, and they are interested in keeping the drug traffic "running through their mills."
"The BND (German secret service) is steered by the CIA and the CIA is steered by Mossad," Von Bülow said.
Horst Ehmke, who coordinated the German secret services directly under German prime minister Willi Brandt in the 70s, predicted a similar terrorist attack in his novel, Torches of Heaven, published last year (LT: 2000 ß), in which Turkish terrorists crash hijacked planes into Berlin.
