The U.S. Department of Labor gave millions of dollars to a joint venture that included a Yemeni charity with extensive links to Al Qaeda. At least $3.5 million was allocated by the Labor Department to fund a three-year partnership between the Charitable Society for Social Welfare (CSSW), based in Yemen, and CHF International, a Maryland-based foundation, to fight child labor and child trafficking starting in fiscal year 2008. The money was provided through a grant by the Labor Department's Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor, and Human Trafficking (OCFT), according to a Labor Department press release, the agency's Web site and Middle Eastern news sources. CSSW, based in Yemen, was founded by Abdul Majid Al Zindani, a veteran of the jihad against the Soviet Union and its civil war aftermath. Zindani was an associate of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, according to published reports and exclusive documents obtained by INTELWIRE. The U.S. government believes he is an Al Qaeda recruiter and fundraiser.

I do not believe I have ever heard this though touted on MSM as this would be giving too much information to the drones.

Oh yea, the steel "got weak" theory may suffice simple minds but to those of us whose minds aren't clouded by gov lies and fairy tales combined with rhetoric spewed by those for nefarious purposes, those lies do not and never will suffice simply because its not the truth.

Could you clarify what you meant by bombs being 'planted' in 1993 ?
Terrorists funded by Al Qaida planted a truck bomb in the underground parking lot of the north tower in 1993 to get it to fall over into the south tower. It blew up and smashed the bejesus out of the basement levels but it didn't destroy the building.
1993 WTC bombing
[color=gold]Rep. Dana Rohrabacher links WTC 1993 bombing to OKC bombing and 9/11 in 15th anniversary speech - February 26, 2008
On February 26, 2008, [color=gold]Congressional Representative Dana Rohrabacher of California made some very interesting observations on the House floor;
So what is my point with this long and winding post? Fifteen years after the WTC 93 bombing, and we still don't know the truth. Nearly thirteen years following OKC, and we still don't know the truth. There are troubling parallels and repeating patterns and players in multiple terrorist incidents in the US, and US intelligence agencies are one of the repeating elements, with deeply placed "informants" in key positions every time.
According to Richard Labeviere in his book, "Dollars for Terror" (pp. 220-221), Yousef was recruited by the CIA;
"Ramzi Ahmed Youssef does not come across as a lost soul or a fanatic ready to make the supreme sacrifice; he is characterized rather as "a top terrorism professional", according to the FBI's notes. Youssef had a collection of forged passports and borrowed names ... A former mujaheddin of the Afghanistan "holy war", he apparently learned the arts of bomb-making, urban guerilla warfare, disguise and forged identity papers in Peshawar, Pakistan. A classified FBI file indicates that he was recruited by the local branch of the CIA."
[color=gold]So now we have two CIA agents, one a CIA/FBI agent, linked to the WTC 93 bombing and 9/11.
To even things out we have Emad Salem, bomb-maker, [color=gold]FBI informant, deep withing the WTC 93 plot.
Further, there is another FBI asset/informant deeply involved in the OKC bombing, a German national by the name of Andreas Strassmeir (also Strassmeyer). Strassmeir lived for a time at Elohim City, and on April 8, 1995 was witnessed at the Lady Godiva strip club in Tulsa, in the company of Timothy McVeigh, bragging to one of the waitresses that she would remember him on April 19, '95, and would remember him for the rest of her life.
