In commerated the 10th aniversay of 9/11, I created this thread to understand why lead to the 9/11 events and how did the U.S. failed to act on the threat and what did we do to make sure that the threat would happened on U.S. soil again like 9/11. I was debating this on class today what lead to 9/11, why did the U.S. failed to act on the threat and how it should be prevented? Who's resposible for this and why? From the 1990s to now. like isolationism, war on terror, Clinton, etc and so on.

Illegal invasions, western imperialism and the occupation of holy lands. Strategic advantage, economic interests and perception.

Sometimes fact can be stranger than the fiction.

For 10 years the events of that day have been lingering in the background. For many years we have constantly heard and read in the media about '9/11 this', '9/11 that', War on Terror, Terror Attack.

For years we have had '9/11' burnt into our minds. We have been psychologically conditioned, we have been indoctrinated to remember. It was something important.

9/11 was not a terrorist attack. It was a warning of a future event. Look and you shall find.

These are from UK terrorist reports from '99 and 2000.

This is from 1999, 2 years before ;

THE COOPERATION BETWEEN THE U.S. AND THE UK PROVED TO BE
INVALUABLE TO THE USG IN ITS INVESTIGATION INTO USAMA BIN LADEN
AND HIS AL-QAEDA ORGANIZATION. THE U.S. AND UK CONTINUE TO WORK
CLOSELY TOGETHER TO ENSURE THAT KHALID AL-FAWWAZ, ABDEL MOHAMMED
ABDUL ALMAGID BARY, AND IBRAHIM EIDAROUS, ALL OF WHOM HAVE
INDICTED IN THE U.S. ON TERRORISM-RELATED CHARGES, ARE
SUCCESSFULLY EXTRADITED.
wikileaks.cabledrum.net...

and from the year 2000

IN APRIL, IN RESPONSE TO A REQUEST FROM THE UNITED STATES,
THE GREATER MANCHESTER POLICE CONDUCTED SEARCHES AT TWO
LOCATIONS IN MANCHESTER IDENTIFIED AS RESIDENCES OF TWO
INDIVIDUALS IDENTIFIED HAS HAVING BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH USAMA
BIN LADEN AND AL-QUEDA. IN NOVEMBER, TWO INDIVIDUALS WERE
ARRESTED IN BIRMINGHAM FOR CONSPIRACY TO CAUSE EXPLOSIONS
UNDER THE PREVENTION OF TERRORISM ACT.
and
COOPERATION WITH THE U.S. IN THE INVESTIGATION OR
PROSECUTION OF ACTS OF INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM AGAINST U.S.
CITIZENS OR INTERESTS: COOPERATION BETWEEN THE USG AND HMG
HAS BEEN INVALUABLE TO THE UNITED STATES IN CONNECTION WITH
ITS INVESTIGATION INTO USAMA BIN LADEN AND AL-QAEDA
ORGANIZATION.
wikileaks.cabledrum.net...


then there was this report 5months before 9/11

THERE HAVE BEEN REPORTS FROM VARIOUS SOURCES THAT
DURING THE TALIBAN DELEGATION VISIT TO QATAR THE
TALIBAN AND QATARIS MAY DISCUSS A TRIBUNAL OF MUSLIM
SCHOLARS TO TRY USAMA BIN LADEN IN QATAR. REPORTEDLY,
UNDER THIS FORMULA, IF THE U.S. OFFERED SUFFICIENT
EVIDENCE AT THE TRIAL, THEN UBL COULD CONCEIVABLY FACE A
SENTENCE BY THE ISLAMIC TRIBUNAL.

12 Trillions worth of oil and gas to be controlled in the caspian sea lead to 911. Unocal, represented by Karzai, was in negotiations with the Taliban for a Trans-Afghanistan pipeline. Negotiations broke down. Then America had to go to Afghanistan. But a pearl harbour like event was needed to justify invasion. So the 911 false flag operation was kicked off, in the wake of which Karzai, who was in close contact with Unocal as mentioned earlier, became president of Afghanistan and has been reelected in 2009 in what has been said to be a fraudulent election.

It was designed to look like a terrorist attack to achieve a political agenda.

Iraq was always top of the agenda when it started trading oil in euros instaed of the mighty dollar. This peed off the US Government who needed a reason to invade iraq, lo and behold 911 was born and soon afte,r iraq took the kicking.
