We already have some good threads going on the wargames, but this is a failry unique observation, so thanks Vic.
Yes, the Comverse/Amdocs phone system compromise story is real, reported shortly after 9/11 by Fox News, in a three-part series. The first thing
widely speculated on regarding war games was that perhaps the terrorists learned of their being planned and moved to synch the attack in with this
knowing the wargames woud hinder the defense.
Tying this story into that thinking is interesting, as the people who would recieve this inside dirt first would be the Israeli government, or some
other elite grouping there, which has rather disturbing implications. So 4 things I'd like to add:
1) I can't rule out that the phone problem is what got the wargames leak out there to the (external?) 9/11 planners, but it's not the only or most
likely possibility, depending on who organized it.
2) It hasn't been shown to my satisfaction that the wargames actually had any real effect on the air defenses. What's been reported is exagerrated -
we ony know so much. It may be worse than we think, or an opertional coicidence with only apparent
relevance to the attacks. Anybody know more?
Pop in to this thread:
The real 911 smoking gun
3) Combined with other oddities like the "art student" spy ring story, Israeli operatives apparently trailing the hijackers, the "high-fiving"
Mossad movers, (and other oddities like the mural-painted would be van bombs in NY?) - some interesting combos emerge...
4) And there's often more to the story's emergence than we see up front. Ex: According to Mike Ruppert (FWIW not universally trusted), the Amdocs
story was leaked to Carl Cameron himself directly by Dick Cheney. Why? Dunno, but with international politics and power at work in the shaping of
9/11, possibly multiple parties involved in different aspects of the succesful attack/failed defense, there might be a use for threats, checkmates,
silent bonds of distrust and cross-implication and such?
