Before such issues had been fully explored, however, the investigation was shut down. Following what ABC News reported were "high-level negotiations between Israeli and U.S. government officials", a settlement was reached in the case of the five Urban Moving Systems suspects. Intense political pressure apparently had been brought to bear. The reputable Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported that by the last week of October 2001, some six weeks after the men had been detained, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and two unidentified "prominent New York congressmen" were lobbying heavily for their release. According to a source at ABC News close to the 20/20 report, high-profile criminal lawyer Alan Dershowitz also stepped in as a negotiator on behalf of the men to smooth out differences with the U.S. government. (Dershowitz declined to comment for this article.) And so, at the end of November 2001, for reasons that only noted they had been working in the country illegally as movers, in violation of their visas, the men were flown home to Israel.
The technology revolution has transformed organizations across the private sector, but not ours, not fully, not yet. We are, as they say, tangled in our anchor chain. Our financial systems are decades old. According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. We cannot share information from floor to floor in this building because it's stored on dozens of technological systems that are inaccessible or incompatible.

Pentagon's finances in disarray
By JOHN M. DONNELLY The Associated Press 03/03/00 5:44 PM Eastern
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The military's money managers last year made almost $7 trillion in adjustments to their financial ledgers in an attempt to make them add up, the Pentagon's inspector general said in a report released Friday.
The Pentagon could not show receipts for $2.3 trillion of those changes, and half a trillion dollars of it was just corrections of mistakes made in earlier adjustments.
Each adjustment represents a Defense Department accountant's attempt to correct a discrepancy. The military has hundreds of computer systems to run accounts as diverse as health care, payroll and inventory. But they are not integrated, don't produce numbers up to accounting standards and fail to keep running totals of what's coming in and what's going out, Pentagon and congressional officials said

No, there are not. There is a lot of baseless innuendo deeply rooted in anti-semitism, but no legitimate questions.
Pointing out the obvious anti-semitism in the OP is NOT derailing the thread.

I'm asking you why you're taking this BBC report seriously when you conspiracy people are ALSO saying the BBC had foreknowledge of the WTC 7 collapse, which necessarily means they're involved in the conspiracy too.

Mossad tried to notify American authorities off an up-coming attack but were rebuffed by the FBI, the CIA and others. What Mossad did not know was that Bush and his V.P. were planning a false flag op. Mossad did not have the airplanes, a missile for the Pentagon, weapons grade thermate, could not set the date for the War Games, give the Stand-Down Order, remove jet fighter cover from D.C. and lower the Pentagon's anti-airplane defense or lose the Pentagon's camera footage of the attack, could not put the "White Plane" over D.C. or orchestrate the cover-up or a hundred other things that only the U.S. Government could do on 911 and after. As we get nearer the truth about 911 the guilty are looking desperately to find someone, anyone to put the blame on. The Jews are an easy target, too easy. The last thing in the World Mossad would do is attack the U.S. The risk would far outway any possible gain. It would be suicidally stupid.

Well ............. This case is dead end. We can't do anything. There is nothing we can do. I have just found out that the 'Dancing Israelis, Urban Moving System and Dominic Suter' Case had been cleared by both US and Israel government.
...I hate to dissappoint you, guys but this is a dead end. I'm going to do some research on future terrorist attack allegedly going to happen in Montreal which might cost 9000 lives.
