Sat down to watch a movie and thought this one
The movie itself probably deserves its own thread. Incredibly relevant topic in terms of current events.
Anyway, about half way through the movie at approximately one hour and seven minutes, Jude Law mentions the suspicious trading activity prior to the
The lines are attributable to the writer correct? The movie was written by Scott Z. Burns
So I did a search on Mr. Burns. Didnt find too much in reference to 9/11 though he also wrote the movie Contagion about which he made the following
statement, "When anthrax happened after 9/11, I can’t remember, I think two people died, and it shut down the airline industry and our government.
So the correlation between how many dead and how devastating the social impact is, that was our escalation.”
I also found this review
in which the author says in reference to the Jude Law character,
"... is suddenly unkempt and irresponsible and echoing 9/11 truther talking points."
If Scott Burns is a 9/11 realist, hes going about it in a very discreet manner.
For those who may not be familiar with the trading irregularities just prior to the 9/11 attacks, I'll provide some background information. Needless
to say, the identities of the traders were never reveled.
Profiting From Disaster?
Before attack: Many put options of hijacked planes' parent companies
An extraordinary number of trades were betting that American Airlines stock price would fall. The trades are called "puts" and they involved
at least 450,000 shares of American. But what raised the red flag is more than 80 percent of the orders were "puts", far outnumbering "call" options,
those betting the stock would rise. Sources say they have never seen that kind of imbalance before, reports CBS News Correspondent Sharyl
Suspicious profits sit uncollected Airline investors seem to be lying
In the days before the attacks, unusually high numbers of put options were purchased for the stocks of AMR Corp. and UAL Corp., the parent
companies of American Airlines and United Airlines, which each had two planes hijacked. There was no such trend involving other carriers.
Profits of doom
Investors have yet to collect more than $2.5 million in profits they made trading options in the stock of United Airlines before the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks, according to a source familiar with the trades and market data.
The uncollected money raises suspicions that the investors -- whose identities and nationalities have not been made public -- had advance knowledge of
ONE option trader recalls: "The market had been dead. Then all of a sudden there was a huge spike in trading in certain options - it just came
out of nowhere. You have to think that there was something suspicious going on."
So far the focus of the international probe into suspicious trading has centred on an extraordinary surge in trading in certain airlines and insurance
companies in the days immediately ahead of the attacks on September 11.
