September 11: Who is Fooling Who?
Published on 16th September 2008
Seven years have gone since ‘terrorists’ attacked the US in September 11, 2001. After reading various reports on the ‘terrorist’ attacks, I was surprised to find out that a majority of people in the world believe that the attacks were orchestrated by one – Osama bin Laden. A close examination of the order of things in September 11 reveals the contrary. It unveils the fact that first – dirty global politics and the quest for a certain group were behind the attacks.
I don’t believe that Osama bin Laden or al-Qaeda were involved in the attacks for the facts that implicate the US government in the attacks outweigh those that implicate Osama Bin Laden and his al Qaeda.
Thierry Meyssan, a French reporter in his book 9/11: The Big Lie disputes “official” reports from the US Government that al -Qaeda masterminded the attacks. Stanley Hilton, US politician and Lawyer who sued President Bush in May 22, 2002 on behalf of the 9/11 victims also alleged that Bush and his government masterminded the 9/11 attacks.
The September 20, 2001 issue of the UK based The Economist quoted flight experts such as Bob Ayling (former chief of British Airways) expressing possibility that some of the planes used for the 9/11 attacks were pilot-less. As a result, the passengers could not control them. Since the dead tell no tales, this truth is still buried.
Other reports allege that the Israeli government was aware of the developments before hand. Otherwise, why did Israel relocate its Zim-American Israeli Shipping Company from the World Trade Centre (WTC) to Norfolk, Virginia a week before the attacks? The company’s tenancy at the towers was supposed to expire in December 2001. Why did Zim opt to lose US $ 50,000 by relocating from floor 16 and 17 of the WTC? When AFP, a France news agency queried why Zim left the building before the attack, they were told that only Shaul Cohen- Mintz, Zim’s President had the answer. The president was however unavailable for comment until December 4, 2001. Why?
Shortly before the attacks, on September 8, 2001, a global meeting on discrimination was held in Durban (South Africa.) Participants in this meeting castigated the US and Israel for human rights abuses. Were the attacks (three days later) meant to divert attention from this rebuke?
Why did Ehud Olmert, Israel’s prime minister secretly visit the US on September 10, 2001 before the attacks? Isn’t it telling that John F. Kennedy was assassinated (November 22, 1963) when Yitzhak Rabin (1922 1995) was on a visit to Dallas (US)? Isn’t it telling that Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit in London (UK) on July 7, 2005 coincided with the London bombings of transport infrastructure? Are these mere coincidences?
We should not just gulp what ‘official’ government reports tell us. We have to think outside the box. For example, was John F. Kennedy assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald as we are meant to believe by the US government? There is evidence to the contrary. He was assassinated by a hit man from a secret service (OAS) trained by Yitzhak Shamir of Israel’s Mossad. Yitzhak Shamir later rose ranks to become Israeli’s Prime Minister (1983 1984 and 1986 – 1992) according to Encyclopedia of Terrorism 2002. When US politician Robert (Bobby) Kennedy was murdered on June 4 1968, it was claimed he was felled by Sirhan Bishara Sirhan. A private investigation however revealed he was murdered by his guard Thane Eugine Caesar. Frank Mankiewicz who led Robert to the kitchen where he met his death was Mossad’s spokesperson in a US group called the Anti Defamation League.
We should not take things at face value. Who made the 9/11 attacks? Why? Why did it have to be on September 11? Is it a mere coincidence that the twin towers of the WTC formed number 11 while they were still standing? Is it a mere coincidence that the first plane to hit the towers was Flight 11? Was it mere coincidence that until Tuesday September 11 2001, eleven years had passed since George Bush (Snr) addressed the US parliament on Tuesday September 11, 1990 where he talked about the Gulf war and New World Order (a US ploy to dominate the World)? Was it mere coincidence that the construction of the Pentagon (one of the victims of the attack) begun on Thursday September 11, 1941? We need to rethink the 9/11 attacks. We should not take things at face value.
