Let's continue with the build up to 9/11. Despite all the claims no one could have ever imagined terrorists using planes as missiles and flying them
into buildings, let's look at at Operation Bojinka in 1995.
In 1995, Ramzi Yousef, mastermind of the '93 WTC bombing, is arrested in Pakistan. Despite a massive manhunt for Yousef, he was only arrested because
a recruit turned him in. He was living in a Bin Laden owned house with his uncle Khalid Sheik Mohammed. Even though he was the most wanted man in the
world, linked to dozens of attacks including the 93 WTC bombing, the CIA tries to stop the FBI from arresting him saying they wanted to continue
tracking him. Could possibly be because he was recruited by the CIA in the late 80's or maybe because of his obvious and known connections within the
ISI. Upon his arrest, Yousef makes a confession before he even gets to the US.
The Operation Bojinka plot has two main components. On January 12, Pope John Paul II is scheduled to visit Manila and stay for five days. A series of
bombs along his parade route would be detonated by remote control, killing thousands, including the Pope. Yousef’s apartment is only 500 feet from
the residence where the Pope will be staying. Then, starting January 21, a series of bombs would be placed on airplanes. Five men, Yousef, Wali Khan
Amin Shah, Abdul Hakim Murad, Abd al-Karim Yousef, and Khalid Al-Shaikh (thought to be an alias for KSM) would depart to different Asian cities and
place a timed bomb on board during the first leg of passenger planes traveling to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Honolulu, and New York. They would then
transfer to another flight and place a second bomb on board that flight. In all, 11 to 12 planes would blow up in a two day period over the Pacific.
If successful, some 4,000 people would have been killed. A second wave of attacks involving crashing airplanes into buildings in the US would go
forward later, once the pilots are trained for it.
This second wave was a plan to dive bomb commercial airliners into US buildings. This is first learned through a Bojinka plotter Abdul Hakim Murad. A
Philippine investigator writes a memo regarding Murad's confession that says, “With regards to their plan to dive-crash a commercial aircraft at the
CIA headquarters, subject alleged that the idea of doing same came out during his casual conversation with [Yousef ] and there is no specific plan yet
for its execution. What the subject [has] in his mind is that he will board any American commercial aircraft pretending to be an ordinary passenger.
Then he will hijack said aircraft, control its cockpit, and dive it at the CIA headquarters. He will use no bomb or explosives. It is simply a
suicidal mission that he is very much willing to execute.”
This second wave was fully revealed to the US in '95. The targets in the US include CIA building, the Pentagon, WTC, Sears Tower, Congress, White
House, nuclear power plants, ... This was all discovered and shared with the US by Philippine authorities. Yousef's confession doesn't include the
second wave or Bin Laden or KSM. US authorities also verify the second wave from Yousef's computer. Odd that in '95 Newsday reported “Some crucial
computer evidence against notorious terrorist suspect Ramzi Yousef has been destroyed, and the FBI has begun an investigation into whether the CIA is
responsible…” and goes on to say the CIA “provided the FBI with a summary of the files, indicating they contained detailed information about
Yousef’s coconspirators in the United States and overseas, including their names, addresses and in some cases, even phone numbers.… But when the
CIA turned over the actual computer and disks, Justice Department experts determined that at least three separate computer deletion programs had been
used to erase some of the data, law-enforcement sources said.”
In '96, Yousef and Murad are convicted for Bojinka. The trial lasts 3 months and produces a 6,000 page transcript, but there is no mention of the
Bojinka second wave, which is basically the blueprint for 9/11. Despite Philippine investigator Rodolfo Mendoza's clearly detailed outline of the
plot, the FBI doesn't call him to testify and is not even mentioned at the trial. But Mendoza's assistant will testify but doesn't make mention of
Ramzi Yousef was protected by the CIA, ISI and the FBI. Despite being on the most wanted list, he was able to travel and continue plotting new
attacks. Yousef was also very close to alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. The CIA was monitoring Yousef and KSM for years. They could have
arrested them anytime they wanted to from the late 80's. After being known as being the man in the '93 WTC bombings, he was still free and was almost
pull off Operation Bojinka. Why was the second wave so hush hush? Why didn't the FBI or CIA want anyone to know about plans that involved commercial
airliners with us regular civilians? And how is it even possible for the President of the US and his National Security Advisor to say 6 years after
Bojinka no one could have even imagined something like 9/11?
A Bojinka plotter, Abdul Hakim Murad, also claimed responsibility for the OKC Bombing. A Philippine undercover operative says Terry Nichols met with
Murad and Yousef in the Philippines in '94 where they discussed blowing up the OKC Building and other buildings.
