WHEN PSYCHOPATHS RULE THE WORLD
I found it difficult to read this book in the PDF file format with the underlying pictures, so I have removed the pictures and am trying to get it formatted correctly for this page. At this time, the formatting is incomplete, if anyone would like to assist me, please feel free to email me.
The following pages separate the wheat from the chaff, the strong from the weak, the wise from the uninformed.
This is a story predicated upon real life. We, the civilian population of the world are not trained or educated in the finer distinctions of global finance. Our perception of millions, billions and trillions of dollars, let alone millions, billions or trillions of ANYTHING is hopelessly mired in the gunk of enigma. We just don’t get it. In fact our eyes generally glaze over and we’re ready to move on to the next subject of study, the next point of distinction whenever anything larger then a bread-box is mentioned. It’s just human nature.
Add to that vast sums of gold, illegal gold at that, even stolen gold, national treasury gold, and we seem to want to head for the nearest exit.
Fortunately, or unfortunately, because the choice is really yours, the events described in the following pages are true. You see, real life is a complicated and convoluted mess of various seemingly disjointed and unconnected events somehow strewn together to make up the many years we call “our life” and rarely do our lives amount to anything more then having children, working and enjoying a few pleasurable moments. We are not the elite. Their lives are things we imagine for brief moments while we’re busy living our own lives.
These people don’t walk in our footsteps but even more importantly, we don’t walk in theirs.
Take a walk with me, in theirs … GoldWarriors
On September 11, 2001 the definition of National Security changed for most U.S. citizens. For an entire postwar generation, “National Security” meant protection from nuclear attack. On that day, Americans redefined that threat. On September 11, 2001 three hijacked airliners hit three separate buildings with such precision and skill that many observers believe those flights were controlled by something other than the poorly trained hijackers in the cockpits. This report contends that not only were the buildings targets, but that specific offices within each building were the designated targets. This report makes clear the understanding that the planes were, in fact, drones, piloted by unknown individuals attached to the military industrial complex of the United States.
The offices targeted in the Twin Towers; buildings 1, 2, 6 and 7, and Pentagon unknowingly held information which if exposed, subsequently would expose a national security secret of unimaginable magnitude. Protecting that secret was the motivation for the September 11th attacks. This report is about that national security secret, its origins and impact. The intent of the report is to provide a context for understanding the events of September 11th rather than to define exactly what happened that day. This report speculates as to how the event was accomplished and provides insight into the actual reasoning used by the perpetrators to justify the attack.
Initially, it is difficult to see a pattern to the destruction of September 11th other than the total destruction of the World Trade Center, a segment of the Pentagon, four commercial aircraft and the loss of 2,993 lives. However, if the perceived objective of the attack is re-defined from its commonly suggested ‘symbolic’ designation as either ‘a terrorist attack’ or a ‘new Pearl Harbor,’ and one begins by looking at it as purely a crime with specific objectives (as opposed to a political action), there is a compelling logic to the pattern of destruction. This report provides research into the early claims by Dick Eastman, Tom Flocco, V.K. Durham and Karl Schwarz that the September 11th attacks were meant as a cover-up for financial crimes being investigated by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), whose offices in the Pentagon were destroyed on September 11th and the Eldorado Task Force, a group consisting of 55 government agencies. After many years of research, this report presents corroborating evidence which supports their claims, and proposes a new rationale for the September 11th attacks. In doing so, many of the anomalies – or inconvenient facts surrounding this event take on a meaning that is consistent with the claims of Eastman et al. The hypothesis of this report is: the attacks of September 11th were intended to cover-up the clearing of $240 billion dollars in securities covertly created in September 1991 to fund a covert economic war against the Soviet Union, during which ‘unknown’ western investors bought up much of the Soviet industry, with a focus on oil and gas. The attacks of September 11th also served to derail multiple Federal investigations away from crimes associated with the 1991 covert operation. In doing so, the attacks were justified under the cardinal rule of intelligence: “protect your resources” and is consistent with a modus operandi of sacrificing lives for a greater cause.
The case for detailed targeting of the attacks begins with analysis of the attack on the Pentagon. After one concludes that the targeting of the ONI office in the Pentagon was not random – and that information is presented later – one then must ask: is it possible that the planes that hit the World Trade Center, and the bombs reported by various witnesses to have been set off inside the buildings 1, 2, 6 and 7 and the basement of the Towers, were deliberately located to support the execution of a crime of mind-boggling proportions? In considering that question, a pattern emerges. For the crimes alleged by Eastman, Flocco, Durham and Schwarz to be successful, the vault in the basement of the World Trade Center, and its contents – less than a billion in gold, but hundreds of billions of dollars of government securities – had to be destroyed. A critical mass of brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers had to be eliminated to create chaos in the government securities market. A situation needed to be created wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could be electronically “cleared” without anyone asking questions- which happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its “emergency powers.” that very afternoon. The ongoing Federal investigations into the crimes funded by those securities needed to be ended or disrupted by destroying evidence in Buildings 1, 2, 6 and 7. Finally, one has to understand and demonstrate the inconceivable: that $240 billion in covert, and possibly illegal government funding could have been and were created in September of 1991. Filling in the last piece of the puzzle requires understanding 50 years of history of key financial organizations in the United States, understanding how U.S. Intelligence became a key source of their off-balance sheet accounts, and why this was sanctioned by every President since Truman. With that, a pattern of motivation is defined which allows government leaders and intelligence operatives to ‘rationalize’ a decision to cause the death 3,000 citizens.
The World Trade Center
There were three major securities brokers in the World Trade Center: Cantor Fitzgerald, Eurobrokers and Gabon Inter Capital. On the morning of September 11, Flight 11 hit the North Tower at 8:46 right below the floors on which Cantor Fitzgerald was situated. Cantor Fitzgerald was the US largest securities dealer in the US and arguably the primary target. Shortly after that, a massive explosion went off just under the FBI offices in the North Tower on the 23rd floor, and Garbon Inter Capital on the 25th floor, and in the basement of Tower 1 as well. The explosion caused the 22nd through 25th floors above to collapse into an inferno. Fires were reported on the 22nd floor at 8:47.10 Shortly, thereafter, at 9:03, Flight 175 hit the South Tower right below the floors on which Euro Brokers was situated. In all three cases, the explosive, fiery destruction consumed the offices in the several floors above. At 9:37 Flight 77 hit the Pentagon, targeting one of the few offices that had been moved in the newly remodeled section of the Pentagon: the Office of Naval Intelligence. Agents of the Office of Naval Intelligence had been investigating the financial transactions which in this report are linked to securities being managed by those security dealers in the World Trade Center that were targeted. Fortunately, most other agencies had not yet been moved back into the targeted section of the Pentagon. 41% of the fatalities in the Twin Towers came from two companies that managed U.S. government securities: Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers. 31% of the 125 fatalities in the Pentagon were from the Naval Command Center that housed the Office of Naval Intelligence.
39 of 40 Office of Naval Intelligence employees died. Over 660 Cantor-Fitzgerald employees died. In the vaults beneath the World Trade Center Towers, any certificates for bonds were destroyed.
Building 7 was evacuated somewhere between 9:00 and 9:30, depending on various claims. Fires and explosions spontaneously began at multiple locations inside the building prior to the collapse of either Tower. This observation is critical in that the official explanation for the fire is that they started when objects from the collapsing towers caused the fires to ignite. Witnesses leaving the building claim to have seen fires already starting, and dead bodies. The Building ultimately was destroyed in what many unofficial observers now believe was a controlled demolition. Building Seven housed the following agencies critical to investigation of financial crimes related to this history:
Export-Import Bank of the US Floor 6
US Secret Service Floors 9 & 10
Securities and Exchange Commission Floors 11,12 &13
Internal Revenue Service Floors 24 & 25
CIA Floor 25
Department of Defense Floor 25
US Secret Service Special Agent David Curran stated: “All the evidence that we stored at 7 World Trade, in all our cases, went down with the building. We lost our network, we lost all our computers, we lost all the equipment that we use as Secret Service Agents. Everything from machine guns to our shotguns to our electronic equipment that we use. A lot of cases had to be closed as a result of losing that building.”
In the midst of all this, Building 6 was destroyed by explosions from within, before being buried in the rubble of the Towers. FEMA, the agency charged with investigating the disaster, did not collect any data on this building. Building 6 was home to the U.S. Customs agency and the El Dorado Task force, an interagency money-laundering group from 55 agencies created in 1992. The El Dorado Task force was responsible for coordinating all major money-laundering investigations in the U.S. In the immediate aftermath of September 11, these groups would be redirected to investigate terrorist financing. On the same day, the Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency and for the first and only time in U.S. history invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k)2 and eased regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would allow an estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership. (The manner in which this was accomplished is explained later in the report.)
The Pentagon Was Bombed
It must be noted that the Office of Naval Intelligence in the Pentagon, which sustained a direct hit from an airliner that day, was without a doubt, a target that was pinpointed for destruction. There are a number of indicators that this was the case:
• The command centers of the US Armed forces and the Office of the Secretary of Defense are located on the River and Mall, northern facing segments of the Pentagon. This is public information. Either of those facades should have been the prime target for a well-planned attack. It needs to be remembered that the individuals responsible for September 11 had almost three years to plan their assault. The targets and methods were not haphazard.
• The western facing section of the Pentagon that was attacked had been under constructions for almost two years, and would not have been considered as a target, unless it was targeted for a specific reason.
• The Naval Command Center had been moved into that newly opened section of the Pentagon a month earlier;
• The attacking aircraft went through great effort to hit the west side of the Pentagon, under either of contentious scenarios, looping around the Pentagon by 270 degrees after approaching from the north east, or looping 360 degrees with it’s approach from the West. Under either scenario, the additional looping created an opportunity with extra flight time for defense systems to take out the attacking plane, and the hijackers took a significant risk of being shot down by executing this maneuver.
• If one looks carefully at the Koeppel flight path approach seen in Figure 1, the attacking flight path went almost directly over the Whitehouse, bypassing what should be considered a primary target, for a supposedly empty section of the Pentagon. With the alternative approach presented by the National Transportation Safety Board, the extra distance in the loop would have allowed it to hit either the White House or the Capitol had it continued straightforward.
• Derek Vreeland who claimed to be an agent for Office of Naval Intelligence had predicted the attack several weeks in advance;
• The ONI has been attributed by several sources with responsibility for leaking copies of the faxes which document the illegal transaction of 1989-1991.
Did Flight 77 “pass” on three primary targets (the White House, the Capitol, and the command centers in the north face of the Pentagon) in order to make a precision hit on what should have been known to be an empty segment of the Pentagon? Did the pilot, described as having “extraordinary skill,” after years of planning, hit a worthless target? It would seem the assumption has to be the pilot hit exactly where he wanted to hit. The planes hitting the South Tower and Pentagon maneuvered in the last moments to hit their exact target. With a world of targets available, why these?
For the majority of Americans, the unanswered questions regarding that day are legion. While many of the questions may never be answered, the extraordinary destruction experienced at specific locations in the WTC, and the peculiar targeting of the Pentagon all support a pattern of deliberate destruction of sites key to the claims of Eastman, Durham, Flocco and Schwarz. While most media reports defer to the U.S. government contention that Osama Bin Laden was behind these attacks, foreign media provided reports suggesting that the “real power” behind Al Qaeda was unknown. As shall be seen, the financial power behind the attack is the same power that created these securities, and the same power as that which founded Al Qaeda.
The CIA ~ Al Qaeda Connection
The Origins of the World Trade Center Attack
Most historians track the history of September 11th to 1998 when Osama Bin Laden declared a fatwa or jihad against the U.S., and the terrorist “Hamburg Group” lead by Mohammed Atta reportedly “offered” it’s services to Al Qaeda. However, the history which defines the motives for the September 11 attacks goes much further back in time. The answers to the questions surrounding the cause of the WTC attack will be found in events going as far back as 1990 and 1991, when the George H.W. Bush was president. To a very great degree, insight into the activities of that period are cloaked by the Executive Order of George H.W. Bush’s son, President George W. Bush, who on November 1, 2001 issued Executive Order 13233. This executive order was intended to balance the public’s right to see the records of past presidents with a need to protect national security. As a result, public records which might have shed light on the activities on 1990 and 1991 remain shielded from public access in the interest of national security and the men and women who support it. Subsequently, this reconstruction of the events from the late 1980s and early 1990s is based on news reports, books and articles.
What the public record suggests is that with the beginning of the first Bush Presidency in 1989, George H.W. Bush initiated a program of covert economic warfare to bring about the collapse of the Soviet Union. The name of this program appears to be Project Hammer (see Project Hammer Documents beginning on Page), a previously reported, multi-billion dollar covert operation, ‘third world investment program’ whose investments remain shielded. This program consisted of four major covert operations including:
• Theft of the Soviet treasury,
• Currency destabilization of the Ruble,
• Funding of the KGB Generals’ August 1991 coup against Gorbachev, and
• Takeover of the key energy and defense industries in the Soviet Union.
At its inception, the program was conducted well within policy framework of the U.S. government as defined by several Executive Orders authored by Vice President Bush and signed by President Ronald Reagan. There is good reason to believe that the plan was initially formulated by Reagan’s CIA Director, William Casey. During World War II, before Casey headed OSS operations in Europe,
he worked for the Board of Economic Warfare and his role was “pinpointing Hitler’s economic
jugular and investigating how it could be squeezed.” Many of the program operatives were probably engaged through official CIA and National Security channels. However, as a result of the experience gained by the Bush cabinet and its private sector counterparts during the secretive Iran-Contra and Ferdinand Marcos gold operations (which will be explained in short order), the execution of that program would be accompanied by two new assumptions:
1) Using covert and illegal funding for a policy not approved by Congress would remain acceptable.
Under George H.W. Bush, Congressional oversight of covert operations could be ignored with impunity;
2) The American public and their representatives in Congress were too pre-occupied with their own lives to be worried about what happened in foreign lands, even if those actions violated the law and the constitution.
Emboldened by the lack of consequences for subverting the U.S. constitution and breaking international law during the Iran-Contra scandal, the Bush administration group known as “the Vulcans” planned a bigger drive to crush the soul of Communism once and for all. This group had graced themselves with this moniker, naming themselves after the Roman god of War – Vulcan. They waged war against the Soviet Union and Iraq under George H.W. Bush, and against Iraq and Afghanistan under George W. Bush. Belonging to this group were:
• Dick Cheney
• Don Rumsfeld
• Colin Powell
• Paul Wolfowitz
• Richard Armitage
• Condoleezza Rice
The Vulcan’s drive to bring and end to the Cold War was fueled by a covert war chest invisible to congressional oversight. This war chest would be known by several names: Black Eagle Trust, the Marcos gold, Yamashita’s Gold, the Golden Lily Treasure, the Durham Trust or Project Hammer. These same Vulcans would be brought back to power in 2000 under the administration of President George W. Bush, son of President George H. W. Bush.
The covert operations conducted by the Vulcans involved – at a minimum – potential securities fraud, money laundering and violation of Foreign Corrupt Practices act. In a number of situations, murder and false imprisonment seemed to be the mainstay of efforts to prevent any remorseful participants in this operation from going public with their stories. While accomplishing its objective – bringing about the demise of the Soviet Union – the program also seems to have lined the pockets of the individuals that executed this policy, at US taxpayer expense. This was done to the tune of a mere $240 billion dollars in covert and allegedly illegal bonds, which appear to have been replaced with Treasury notes backed by U.S. taxpayers in the aftermath of September 11!
Seventeen years later in 2008, the personal financial empires of those who benefited directly from these covert securities should now stand at several trillion dollars, and are rightfully the property of various citizenries. Putin’s purge of selected oligarchs is consistent with this story.
The covert securities used to accomplish the original national security objective of ending the Cold War ended up in the vaults of the brokers in the World Trade Center, and were destroyed on September 11, 2001. They came due for settlement and clearing on September 12. The federal Agency investigating these bonds – The Office of Naval Intelligence- was in the section of the Pentagon that was destroyed on September 11. To a key group of senior National Security officials who had participated in the victory of the economic cold war in 1991, the WTC, the Pentagon, the four airliners and their occupants would became ‘collateral’ damage in the ending of the Cold War. Their deaths were required to hide the existence of the Black Eagle Trust, and the covert activities it had funded for over 50 years. The alternative view of these events suggests that the destruction of these lives and buildings constituted a cover-up of continued lawlessness by a fraternity or brotherhood of businessmen and criminals often referred to as ‘the Enterprise’ in the 1980s, but has remained in the shadows since.
The War Chest
The story of these bonds and their source of funding has been publicized on the internet for several years, but the story has never really gained much credibility (until now), even though the bonds themselves have been at the heart of several law suits and criminal proceedings. In trying to understand the origins of what seems at first glance to be a sort of cold war internet-legend, history suggests that in September of 1991, George H.W. Bush and Alan Greenspan did indeed finance $240 billion in bonds in a buyout of the Soviet Union as part of a broader program to end the Cold War through an attack on the economy of the Soviet Union. More-over, President George H.W. Bush had initiated a number of related covert operations to takeover certain sectors of the Soviet economy, and ten years later in 2001, these programs had finally come back to haunt the U.S. policy makers. Most, if not all of these programs appear to have stepped outside of the boundaries of the law. As a result, investigative agencies from Britain, Switzerland, Russia, Kazakhstan and the Philippines were putting pressure on Congress and the U.S. Department of Justice to open up the accounts in the banks used to finance these covert activities, which were being viewed as criminal activities in foreign courts. Alan Greenspan, the Treasury Department and key banks in the U.S. and Europe were being sued for gold-price fixing or illegal gold sales which appears to have it’s origins in the covert war chest used to wage this war. At the same time, the suits brought by the Holocaust survivors victims of the Marcos regime, and the US Congress under influence of pro-Israeli lobbyists were putting pressure on the Swiss banking cartel to open it’s bullion records to public scrutiny. Full disclosure by these banks during an investigation would have resulted in a major exposure of U.S. Government complicity in some of the greatest financial fraud of the 1980s and early 1990s as well as 50 years of gold bullion theft by numerous U.S. and British government agencies. Moreover, investigation into these accounts would disclose a National Security secret known as the Black Eagle fund, and virtually every covert operation since World War II. Bringing an end to these investigations and preventing this disclosure was the sole objective for the destruction of the WTC and Pentagon.
These investigative and legal pressures began to accumulate in 1997, and in February 1998, Osama Bin Laden declared his fatwa, and Atta started planning the September 11 attacks. To understand the decisions made in 1998 which brought about the attack on the World Trade Center, one must go back in history to appreciate the magnitude of exposure these bankers and government officials faced. Ten years prior to the planning that Atta was beginning, planning had begun for economic war on the Soviet Union. The source of funding for this covert war is traced to the end of World War II, but it was not until 1986 did the size of that war chest make the 1991 attack on the Soviet Union feasible. Understanding the source of that funding is absolutely critical to understanding why the World Trade Center was destroyed in 2001.
Numerous sources have documented that at the end of World War Two, the treasury of the Japanese Empire was discovered in the Philippines by a staff member of General Charles Willoughby, who was General MacArthur’s chief of Intelligence. Then known as the Golden Lily Treasure, this mass of wealth had been accumulated by the Japanese with over fifty years of its army pillaging Southeast Asia and China. It was deposited in the Philipines due to the U.S. submarine blockade of Japan. Reports vary, but documents in the public domain suggest the recovered treasure was in excess of 280,000 metric tonnes of gold, not including jewels and diamonds. After the War that staff member, Edward Lansdale and Severino Garcia Diaz Santa Romana tortured Major Kojima Kashii – General Yamashita Tomoyuki’s driver –until he revealed and created a map of the gold sites.
Lansdale briefed Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy about the findings, and a U.S. Cabinet level decision was made to confiscate the gold and cover-up its discovery. The gold would be added to the Black Eagle Trust fund. It was McCloy, along with Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson and Secretary of War Henry L Stimson who created the Black Eagle Trust. John McCloy, who had shared a box at the 1939 Olympics with Adolph Hitler, went on to become President of the World Bank. Robert Anderson would go on to operate the Commercial Exchange Bank in the British West Indies, be convicted of running illegal banking operations and tax evasion, and be sentenced to prison. A fourth member of that group – William ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan – would go on to found the CIA, distribute the gold to key banks represented by his staffers, and establish AIG as a key partner in the CIA’s covert operations.
The trust they created takes its name from the Nazi Black Eagle stamped on the gold bars of the Third Reich. Gold bullion confiscated from the Reich and not returned to its rightful owners and their heirs was the original source of funding for this trust. Over the years, the significance of the Nazi gold would pale in comparison to the confiscated Japanese treasure. As the fund grew, it was distributed in private accounts across the globe in over 100 banks, and administered by General Earle Cocke, financial advisor to every U.S. President from Truman to Clinton, until his death. Most of the individuals who controlled these accounts are long dead, and attempts by their heirs to access these accounts have been met with stonewalling, false imprisonment or death under suspicious circumstances. Santa Romano’s heirs are one example. Mrs. V. K. Durham is one such individual. Her husband,Colonel Russell Herman, controlled the Durham Trust. This report will return to their story in a little while.
John J. McCloy had long been involved in the murky world of espionage, intrigue and nazis. He spent the decade of the 1930s working out of Paris. Much of his time was spent on a law case stemming from German sabotage in World War I. His investigation took him to Berlin, where he shared a box with Hitler at the 1936 Olympics. He was in contact with Rudolph Hess before the Nazi leader made a mysterious flight to England in 1941.
From 1954 to 1970, he was chairman of the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations in New York. McCloy served as Assistant Secretary of War during World War II, president of the World Bank, and U.S. High Commissioner for Germany.
As an assistant secretary in the War Department during the war:
o McCloy blocked the executions of nazi war criminals
o Forged a pact with the Vichy Regime of pro-nazi Admiral
o Displaced Japanese-Americans in California to internment
o Refused to recommend the bombing of nazi concentration
camps to spare the inmates on grounds “the cost would be out of proportion to any possible benefits.”
o Refused Jewish refugees entry to the U.S.
The men responsible for initiating and executing the confiscation of Nazi and Japanese treasury gold represent the most senior Intelligence officers in the U.S. and Britain at the end of World War II, and the Cabinet of the President of the United States. From the Office of Strategic Services – the OSS – the decision-makers were:
• Wild Bill Donovan, the most decorated soldier of World War I and head of the OSS and his direct staff which included:
• Allen Dulles, future Director of the CIA and a principal of Bank of New York, and legal representative of Brown Brothers, Harriman.
• Henry S Morgan and Spencer Morgan. Henry and Spencer were the sons of JP Morgan, and would return from their service to manage the financial empire that would evolve from JP Morgan to ‘Morgan and Chase’ to then to ‘Chase Manhattan’ to finally what in 2008 was known as Chase.
• Paul Helliwell would become the primary covert operations banker for U.S. intelligence, setting up in Nassau Castle Bank and then Mercantile Bank and Trust. When Castle Bank needed to be closed, he set up Nugan Hand Bank. When the Nugan Hand Bank closed, he helped shift banking operations to Household Bank in Chicago, Illinois and to the notorious BCCI bank. His front man, and associate of Bill Donovan was General Earle (a.k.a. Erle) Cocke.
• General Earl Cocke would be the financial advisor to every President from Truman until Cocke’s death in the year 2000. Cocke was a true American hero in the classical sense: the recipient of the Silver Star, four Bronze Stars and four Purple Hearts. He was also the coordinator for the Black Eagle Fund and Project Hammer,
which would be used to bring down the Soviet Union and attempt to bring Soviet oil and gas resources under the control of Western investors.
• George S Moore; future President and CEO of First National City Bank of New York, which would evolve to become Citibank. Citibank would end up with over 116,000 metric tonnes of the Marcos Gold.
• General George Olmsted; was another World War II hero who subsequently was responsible for distributing
U.S. Military Assistance, later becoming President of a Washington DC based bank holding company known as International Bank, which took over the CIA’s Mercantile Bank and Trust in the Bahamas. Under Olmsted’s leadership, International Bank sold Financial General Bankshares (FGB) then known as First American, to BCCI.
• William Colby future CIA director and lawyer for Helliwell’s covert operation banks.
• William Casey, decorated World War II veteran, future Director of the CIA. Casey took over from Paul Helliwell the “Secret Intelligence Branch” of the OSS in Europe in 1945.
These men would form the core of the OSS that worked to create an “apparatus belli,”53 and virtually all of them would play a dominant role in the worlds’ most important banks. From the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) came participation and support for the OSS from John and William Keswick from the Jardine
Matheson Bank.54 The Keswick family would also control the Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation
(HSBC).55 Fifty years later, the financial institutions represented by these individuals would become the major financial banks in the world, along with the Swiss-German banks they hid their gold in.
Wild Bill Donovan, Lansdale and Santa Romana were made responsible for recovery of the treasure. They fabricated a “Communist Revolution” by the Hukbalahak rebels in order to confiscate the land where much of the gold was buried, and proceeded to mine it.56 Several sites sit on Clark Air Force Base.57 Over the
years, Lansdale’s personal account in Zurich grew to over thirty thousand metric tonnes – greater than the national treasury of any modern nation state.
Santa Romana had multiple accounts, the largest single account was valued at over 20,000 metric tonnes. While these accounts were created in their names, over time it would be shown these were actually government accounts. As a point of reference, the annual gold production of the world is estimated to be 1,200 tonnes, and in 1980 the 10 U.S. gold repository at Fort Knox held only 8,221 tonnes. There has been no public report of the Fort Knox inventory since 1980.
According to David Guyatt and Sterling and Peggy Seagrave, the Yamashita gold would become the cornerstone of the Black Eagle Fund, from which many covert operations of the U.S. intelligence would be funded. 58 The most common interpretation international law is that the gold should have been either returned to the countries from which it was stolen (as was done with the Nazi gold59), or should have been incorporated into the U.S. Treasury. With no uncertain terms, the U.S. Government’s continued efforts to stifle news on this matter provides prima facie evidence that the confiscation of this gold is illegal.
Lansdale’s operation in the Philippines gave birth to most of the common features of modern covert operations for U.S. Intelligence: bribery, theft, torture, and false flag operations. It would be Lansdale who would initiate a bond between the US intelligence organizations and the Israeli intelligence. It would be Lansdale that would set precedents for the Intelligence community to retain the services of organized crime on U.S. soil. Lansdale would hire American Mafia family heads Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, Meyer Lansky, and Lucky Luciano in the U.S. war against Fidel Castro in 1961, much as he would hire the Italian Mafia families to wage an illegal operation against the Italian Communist party.
“…the gangsters in Lansdale’s employ were the very gangsters the FBN was chasing–Carlos Marcello, Santos Trafficante, Meyer Lansky, and Lucky Luciano. … The CIA’s connection, of course, began with ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan’s old OSS and its recruitment of Lucky Luciano and the Corsican mafiosi to beat and murder Communist union dockworkers in Marseilles and elsewhere along the Mediterranean Coast, and to seize Sicily from the Communists. With CIA blessing, and using drug running as a way of financing activities, the Mafia set up drug supply routes back to the U.S. Many an FBN operation would trace the drugs back to Mafia sources, in turn supplied through Lebanon, Turkey, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in the Middle East, only to be thwarted by the far more powerful CIA stepping in and terminating the investigation on national security grounds.”60 It would be Lansdale’s team that would propose and justify sacrificing innocent U.S. civilians in order to rally the American citizenry to support an invasion of foreign soil. This was done under a program run by Brigadier General William H. Craig, who reported to Lansdale for the Cuba project.61 This project was called Operation Northwoods. Documents for this project would be accidentally released from the files of Robert McNamara into the public domain some 40 years later, exposing the degree to which Lansdale’s operatives would go to wage war. 62 In these documents, the U.S. military acknowledged it could wage a “terror” campaign against US citizens in order to justify a second invasion of Cuba. It would be the first official recognition that US intelligence operations used terrorist tactics.
It was Lansdale who oversaw the set up of assassination squads to target Fidel Castro while operating out of Florida. One of Lansdale’s proteges’ in the assassination business was Ted Shackley, would go on to set up assassination squads in Vietnam under Operation Phoenix.63 Shackley would take Felix Rodriguez with him from the Cuba Project to Laos for a secret war in support of Vietnam. Felix Rodriguez was a close confidante of former CIA Director George H.W. Bush, and maintained direct phone contact with Bush when Bush became Vice President under Ronald Reagan.64 When the U.S. intelligence funded, Iran-Contra gun running pilot was shot down in Nicaragua, it was Rodriguez that called George Bush to let him know that the pilot
had been captured alive. In Vietnam, Shackley and Rodriguez would expand their circle of operatives to include Oliver North, Richard Secord and Richard Armitage. North, Secord and Armitage had proven themselves as men who could ‘get results’ against the communists by operating outside of the rules. They would provide the second generation of U.S. black ops leadership. The ‘whatever it takes’ zeal that these men developed in service of their country was ruled unacceptable in U.S. Military courts at the Mai Lai Massacre trial65, but it was still condoned by ‘apparatus belli’ spawned by Wild Bill Donovan.
Theodore G. “Ted” Shackley, Jr. at left.
July 16, 1927 – December 9, 2002 – Shackley was an American CIA officer involved in many important and controversial CIA operations during the 1960s and 1970s. He is one of the most decorated CIA officers. He was commonly known as the “Blond Ghost” due to his dislike of being photographed. In 1976, he was appointed Associate Deputy Director for Operations, and was in charge of the CIA’s worldwide covert operations. Shackley is perhaps best known for his involvement in CIA “Black Operations”, such as “Phoenix” , “Mongoose” and “Operation Cherry.” Despite his retirement in 1979, controversy continued to surround Shackley over alleged involvement in the alleged “October Surprise” of 1980, and later the “Iran-Contra” affair of the mid eighties. He had hoped to return to the Agency, and according to Rafael Quintero, during the 1980 presidential campaign, Shackley met Bush almost every week, and his wife, Hazel, also campaigned for Bush.
His autobiography, Spymaster: My Life in the CIA, was published in April, 2005. Former CIA chief, Richard
Helms described Shackley as a quadruple threat at his inauguration into the CIA Hall of Fame in 1979. “Ted,” said Helms at the time, “Is what we call in the spook business a quadruple threat—Drugs, Arms, Money and Murder” CIA agent Ted Shackley, called the Blond Ghost, the consummate ‘spook,’ shows up in the index of practically every book ever written on the illegal drug trade, political assassination, and sabotage from the earliest days of the U.S. takeover from the French in Vietnam to Operation Mongoose and the Phoenix Program, right through Iran-Contra. He famously said: “I fought the communists for twenty-eight years. I did a lot of bad things for my country. But I loved my country and did what I thought best.”
Of course, the case is easily made that Shackley also did a lot of bad things TO his country. Jonathan Kwitny, in his book The Crimes of Patriots: A True Tale of Dope, Dirty Money, and the CIA, sums up Shackley’s career thus:
“Looking at the list of disasters Shackley has presided
over during his career, one might even conclude that on
the day the CIA hired Shackley it might have done better
hiring a KGB agent; a Soviet mole probably could not
have done as much damage to the national security of the
United States with all his wiles as Shackley did with the
most patriotic of intentions.”
While in Southeast Asia, North, Secord, Armitage, Rodriguez and Shackley would finance their operations through the Nugan Hand bank in Australia rather than with funds under congressional oversight. Nugan Hand Ltd. was founded in Sydney in 1973 by Australian lawyer Frank Nugan (who was reputedly associated with the Mafia) and former U.S. Green Beret Michael Jon Hand who operated in Northern Laos as part of the Phoenix Project. They were assisted in this by Paul Helliwell, one of the primary OSS agents in the original Yamashita gold operation. Frank Nugan’s family ran the primary supply shipping operation between the U.S. Navy base in the Philippines and 11 Australia. It is through Frank Nugan and his business partner Peter Abeles, that insight is provided to the flow of some of this Marcos treasure. Peter Abeles was reputed to be a member of what was known in Australia as the Hungarian Mafia and a partner with Henry Keswick. Sir Henry Keswick was the son of SOE officer John Keswick. The Keswick family had controlling interest in Jardine Matheson, which owned and operated Ferdinand Marcos’ gold smelting operation, which was opened in the mid 1970s. The Keswick family also had controlling interest in the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC), which was the largest holder of Santa Romana’s known gold accounts, although Citibank would be the largest recipient of the confiscated treasure.
When Romana died, the bank refused to hand over his accounts to his heirs, and confiscated his accounts.
It was Peter Abeles and Sir Henry Keswick that brought Canadian businessman Peter Munk back to business prominence from a scandalous insider-trading lawsuit in Canada in 1967. Munk would partner with Adnan Kashoggi, Sheik Kamal and Edgar Bronfmann in a series of operations which ultimately would evolve into Barrick Gold. Barrick Gold would become an investment for nearly every gold bullion bank associated with the Marcos gold recovery. These banks would loan gold to Barrick, which would then sell the borrowed gold as derivatives, with the promise of replacing the borrowed gold with their gold mining operation. The records of many of those transactions disappeared when Enron collapsed and the trading operation and all its records were taken over by UBS, another major recipient of Marcos gold. The FBI was reportedly conducting an investigation into those transactions, and the investigation files were kept on the 23rd floor of the North Tower of the WTC. A review of the personal accounts of September 11 now suggests that office was deliberately targeted with explosives prior to the collapse of the WTC.
The Nugan Hand Bank would be one of the many banks used for transferring the Marcos gold from the Philippines into covert operations. Brigadier General Earle Cocke was the President in charge of the Nugan Hand Washington Office, and would be the key manager of Project Hammer and the Black Eagle Trust. Other Nugan Hand Bank employees from U.S. Intelligence operations included:
• General Leroy J. Manor (manager of the Manila branch) former chief of staff of the U.S. Pacific; Command and deputy director for counterinsurgency and special activities; he shared his office with Marcos’s brother-in-law ;
• General Edwin F. Black (president of Hawaii branch) former commander of U.S. forces in Thailand;
• Richard Secord (all around operative with responsibilities in Iran-Contra, Vietnam assassinations, creating Mujahadeen armies in Afghanistan, and central Asia);
• Dale Holmgreen (former chairman CIA’s Civil Air Transport, manager of the Taiwan branch);
• Richard L. Armitage (was special consultant to the Pentagon in Thailand who oversaw the transfer of heroin profits from Indonesia to Shackley’s account in Tehran);
• William Colby (former director of the CIA as legal counsel);
• Rear-Admiral Earl P. Yates, the former Chief of Staff for Policy and Plans of the U.S. Pacific Command and a counter-insurgency specialist, became president of the company;
• Walter McDonald (retired CIA deputy director, headed Annapolis branch);
• Dr. Guy Parker (an expert from the RAND Corporation who came on as a bank consultant) senior Republican foreign policy adviser.
The bank was founded as a funding operation for U.S. covert operations in Australia, and was a conduit for Marcos gold. One of the objectives of the ‘bank’ was to bring about the pre-mature closure of the Australian labor government. The Whitlam government had quietly threatened to nationalize subsidiaries of American corporations. “The subsequent inquiries have established the Nugan-Hand bank was to be the organization used as cover for the operations of Task Force 157.
The Task Force 157 was a group set up by Henry Kissinger and it was set up in a quite strange way. It was a mini-CIA which was actually separate from the CIA and probably was set up by Kissinger so he could deny any connection between what the Task Force 157 was doing and the CIA. Nevertheless, the personnel of Task Force 157 included Ted Shackley, who was one of the head of sabotage operations against Cuba, he was Station Chief in Saigon during the Vietnam War, and he was the Chief of the CIA Western Hemisphere Division, so with an impeccable CIA record like that it would be very difficult to disassociate him from what the CIA was doing. The concept of Task Force 157 seems to have been two-fold: firstly, to set up operations against the Whitlam government. And secondly, to go ahead with using Australia as a base for certain clandestine U.S. operations such as arms dealing and smuggling of contraband goods.” The Nugan Hand Bank was closed in January 1980 within several days of the unsolved murder or suicide of Frank Nugan. The reasons for his murder have never been identified, but during that time, the operation was at risk of being exposed. “Bobby Inman, former Deputy Director of the National Security Agency and Deputy Director of the CIA, said on two occasions that he expressed deep concern that investigations of Nugan-Hand would lead to disclosure of a range of dirty tricks played against the Whitlam government (Australian labor government).” (The U.S. Intelligence’s modus operandi of using murder for covering its tracks is further documented when the Iran-Contra and October Surprise affairs are reviewed later in this report.) John Hand would disappear a few days
after the death of Frank Nugan, never to be seen again. Bank operations were transferred to HouseHold Bank in Page 26 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 27 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Chicago, Illinois, where William Colby would be come the unofficial counsel. There, according to Herman Skolnick, Household Bank would continue the work of Nugan Hand. Among their functions, transferring covert operations funds, assassination team funding, skimming of dope, gambling, and gun-running loot; military, civilian, international.
U.S. Military, Admirals and Generals, as well as intelligence community officials, supposedly either
“retired”, or “on leave”, operated Nugan-Hand, and aided thereafter Household and its numerous units and subsidiaries. The “tracking the money” project was conducted over-all by Household International with the assistance reportedly of Systematics, a banking computer services firm, originally a subsidiary of an Arkansas-based operation. Targeted have been the banks of both friends and enemies alike. (Vince) Foster and his crew – Hillary (Rodham Clinton) and Webster (Hubbell) – used as a cover that they were supposedly “attorneys” for Systematics. Vincent and Hillary’s role in this was arranged and supervised by a Chicago-based law firm Hopkins & Sutter.
Many units of Household Finance were shortly thereafter taken over by Harris Bank, which was then taken over by the Bank of Montreal. The Bank of Montreal would be controlled by the Bronfmann family, which became heavily invested in Barrick Gold. It would be Edgar Bronfmann that would cut a deal with the Swiss banking cartel in 1998 that would derail U.S. Congressional and Israeli pressure for an investigation into the Holocaust and Marcos gold accounts.
By the end of the 1980s, the banks that had their agents in the OSS intelligence operations at the end of World War II were the banks that would be the dominant global players by 2001.
• Morgan Guaranty Trust
• Chase Manhattan
• Jardine Matheson
The covert operations funded by the Black Eagle Trust in the 1960s and 1970s became visible stains on theglobal image of the U.S. despite all efforts to keep them under cover. In an effort to clean house, President Jimmy Carter would order the retirement of over 800 covert operatives. Many of these operatives would move into private consulting and security firms and be employed as subcontractors for covert operations. Thus began a loose association of private operatives that would be referred to as “the Enterprise” in the years to come. George H.W. Bush, having been CIA Director, had many acquaintances in this group, and would work with them to restore their influence and control over U.S. foreign policy and the foreign investment opportunities it created for their benefit.
Unlike other presidential administrations, the Reagan administration was uniquely characterized by having the Vice President – who at that time was George H.W. Bush – in control of Foreign Policy. That control was established in an agreement between Bush and Reagan prior to their election. The agreement was later formalized with Executive Order 12333. As William Casey’s biographer pointed out, Reagan “knew little about foreign policy and cared less…” and as a result sharpies around the President took over and they ran him.” In November 1980, Ronald Reagan was elected to the White House on a slim margin of votes, defeating incumbent Jimmy Carter. The few percentage points in votes which were responsible for giving Reagan and Bush the victory were attributed to President Carter’s inability to rescue and free hostages being held in Iran. The failed rescue attempt of the hostages was reported to be the responsibility of Oliver North, Richard Secord and Albert Hakim, who planned and controlled the rescue operation. In the meantime, it is reported that the release of the hostages by Iran was deliberately delayed by negotiations led by George Bush, and David Kimche of the Israeli Mossad- the Israeli equivalent of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, and Saudi businessman Adnan Khashoggi. For $40 million dollars, the Iranians would delay the release of the hostages until after the election. The men involved in this operation, referred to in the chapters of history as “the October Surprise” were:
• George HW Bush
• Adnan Khashoggi
• Oliver North
• David Kimche
• Bob Gates
• Richard Secord
• William Casey
Sixty-nine days after the Inauguration, John Hinkley attempted to assassinate President Reagan. Eight days prior to that attempt, there were a series of unprecedented policy changes that put George Bush in charge of Foreign Policy and National Security. On March 22, 1981, Bush took control of the “Emergency Crisis Management Staff,” in a Cabinet meeting. That role conferred new roles and powers on Bush, including “unprecedented powers for a vice- president.” Vice President George Bush was named the leader of the United States “crisis management ‘’ staff, as a part of the National Security Council system.
Then, on March 30, 1981, eight days after these powers were conferred on Bush, President Reagan was shot. On that day, there were actually two unsigned versions of National Security Directive 1 (NSDD1), one which made Al Haig and another which made George Bush the caretaker of the “red phone’ in case of National Emergency. The content of either version has never been released to the public.
Sixty nine days after the inauguration, the man whose operatives had bribed terrorists in violation of American policy and law, the man whose close colleagues and advisors planned a failed rescue attempt which cost the lives of US soldiers – all with the purpose of controlling the American Presidency, was now in control of US foreign policy.
The father of the assassin that put Bush in power was John (a.k.a. Jack) Hinckley, Sr., who was the owner of Vanderbilt Oil. Hinckley had been giving maximum donations every year to George H.W. Bush since he started running for Congress. “When the Hinckley oil company, Vanderbilt Oil started to fail in the 1960s, Bush, Sr.’s, Zapata Oil financially bailed out Hinckley’s company. Hinckley had been running an operation with six dead wells, but he began making several million dollars a year after the Bush bailout.” John Hinckley, Sr., had also been extensively involved in an executive position with U.S. Ministries for World Vision, a widely reported CIA front operation. After the Jonestown Massacre, World Vision took over Jonestown. In The Black Hole of Guyana: The Untold Story of the Jonestown Massacre, John Judge painstakingly documents that Jonestown was a CIA operation for converting dispossessed and lonely refugees into assassins.
In an operation that was falling under Congressional investigation, the evidence had to be eliminated – and nearly all the inhabitants were murdered to prevent disclosure.
The assassin John Hinckley’s brother Scott Hinckley, and Neil Bush were not only friends, but had recently partied together and were scheduled to have dinner with each other that very day. Also, on the very day John Hinckley attempted to kill Reagan, three Department of Energy auditors were pressuring Hinckley’s brother, Scott, with a $2 million penalty. This penalty would later disappear. George H.W. Bush, with his new found ‘Emergency’ powers, would deny Al Haig’s formal request for an investigation into the assassination attempt. The covert business dealings with the Iranians and Israelis which originated with Kashoggi and Kimche in July 1980 in Hamburg with the October Surprise arrangement, would grow into a larger covert operation over the years, and provide an opening to the Soviet KGB that would allow the U.S. to fund a coup against Gorbachev in 1991. In this operation, a number of key Bush policy advisors and operatives would conduct what they collectively viewed should be the “honorable and right” foreign policy of the U.S., rather than what Congress had determined what that policy should be by law. The October Surprise operation would grow and be overshadowed by the larger Iran-Contra operation. Members of Bush’s covert intelligence cadre sold weapons to Iran, an avowed enemy of the U.S., and illegally used the profits to continue funding anti-Communist rebels, the Contras, in Nicaragua. Viewed as anti- communists, the CIA Director characterized them as being motivated by greed. The premise of using covert funding to fight the cold war would re-emerge a few short years later when the Bush cadre decided to take on the Soviet Union.
The entire Iran-Contra operation almost fell apart in 1986 and became public when the Nicaraguan government shot down a U.S. plane carrying weapons to the Contra rebels, and captured the U.S. pilot Eugene Hasenfus. The discovery of these shipments – a violation of U.S. law – initiated a series of Congressional investigations and an investigation by an Independent Counsel. The meetings in Hamburg and Paris which were held to prevent an October Surprise were never mentioned, and the two pilots who flew Bush to Paris were immediately imprisoned and discredited when they sought to testify in front of Congress. A court would later find the charges against the pilots to be without support, but by that time their testimony had been blocked and discredited.
“Gunther Russbacher.. claimed to have videotape proof and sixteen witnesses
to his having flown George Bush to one of the October Surprise meetings.”
Ari Ben-Menashe a major Israeli coordinator of these deals, would also testify that he had personally seen George H.W. Bush at the Paris meeting. “In June, I also testified under oath, in closed session, before the Senate Foreign Relations committee. I stated unequivocally that I had, seen Bush in Paris.”
According to Ari Ben-Menashe, a major Israeli coordinator of these deals, four of the five supply chains set up to arm Iran were never investigated, and continued to operate right through the Congressional Hearings on Iran Contra. “…Tower knew perfectly well there was an ongoing arms channel. Yet the Tower Commission made no mention of it. In February 1987, while Tower was investigating a minor part of the sales to Iran, the Joint Israel-Iran Committee, together with Robert Gates, ran the biggest ever arms supply operation to Iran. The official inquiry was better than any smokescreen we … could have dreamed up.”
Quite simply, the Iran-Contra team continued to violate the law even while being investigated by Congress. There were a few indictments and convictions as a result of the Iran-Contra affair, but generally those involved were exonerated. Bush later pardoned the few lower level government officials that were indicted and convicted. Dick Cheney was one of the Congressional committee members that decided that no crimes had been committed, and that Bush was not involved. Robert Mueller, who as U.S. Attorney headed the Noriega (a related Iran-Contra inquiry) and the BCCI investigations found no evidence pointing to illegal behavior by George H.W. Bush. His subsequent investigation into Enron found no wrong doing by Enron. Mueller would later be called up to head the WTC Investigation.
To support this cover-up of the Iran-Contra operations, witnesses had to be silenced.
“Navy Lt. Commander Alexander Martin was, in effect, the chief accountant
for the Reagan/Bush drug operations run by Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, through an obscure arm of the White House National Security Council called the National Programs Office. In a radio interview with talk show host Tom Valentine last July, Martin spoke not only of drugs and money, but death. “Out of roughly 5,000 of us who 16 were originally involved in Iran-Contra, approximately 400, since 1986, have committed suicide, died accidentally or died of natural
causes. In over half those deaths, official death certificates were never issued. In 187 circumstances, the bodies were cremated before the families were notified. “Martin then said he was lying low.”
“The Manhattan D.A. who closed the American branch (of the BCCI) announced that 16 witnesses had died in the course of investigating the bank’s entanglements in covert operations of the CIA, arms smuggling to Iraq, money laundering and child prostitution.” “From October 30th to Christmas eve there were four attempts to kill, me and our friend William Smith, who everyone thinks is a high ranking Naval Intelligence officer. During that same time over fifty CIA operatives, their wives and families were killed in an attempt by the Robert Gates faction of the CIA to cover its tracks before Clinton’s team came to power. After the last attempt on my life, my husband’s SEAL team arranged safe passage for me to Vienna, Austria, where I stayed until Robert Gates was removed as Director of the CIA.”
Ari Ben Menashe writes that Amiran Nir was assassinated to prevent his testimony at the trial of Oliver North.That testimony would have implicated George H.W. Bush. Senator John Heinz and Senator Towers would later meet the same fate as Amiran Nir – death by plane crash. The pattern of taking the lives of anyone who created a risk of exposure of these National Security operations was repeated in 1991, and again in 2001.
The names of the individuals involved in the Iran-Contra scandal include:
• George H.W. Bush • Richard Armitage
• Adnan Khashoggi • Khalid bin Mahfouz
• Oliver North • Dick Cheney
• David Kimche • Farhad Azima
• Richard Secord • Alton G. Keel Jr.
• Richard Armitage • Bruce Rappaport
• Russell Hermann • Alfred Hartmann
• Bob Gates • Porter Goss
• Shiek Kamal Adham • Shaul Eisenberg
• Robert Mueller • Colin Powell
Most of these would become the key operatives in the secret war against the Soviet Union.
As the Iran-Contra operation was unfolding, on the other side of the world, another important development was occurring. Ferdinand Marcos, the pro-U.S. dictator of the Philippines was being muscled by the Bush foreign policy machine to hand-over to the U.S. by what is estimated by some to be possibly as high as an additional 73 thousand tonnes of the remaining Golden Lily Treasure. At that time, the treasure had an estimated value of $500 to $600 billion.
The individuals associated with this operation were:
• George HW Bush
• Adnan Khashoggi
• Oliver North
• Russell Hermann
• Paul Wolfowitz
U.S. intelligence operations had been siphoning off the Marcos gold for three decades.
Ferdinand Marcos, how ever, continued to discover even more of the buried treasure. Marcos had started to sell it on the market during the 1970s in bits and pieces, with the assistance of Adnan Khashoggi. For some unknown reason, the Enterprise decided they wanted it all in 1986. That reason is now known – being to fund a war against the Soviet Union. Vice President George Bush ultimately took the gold from Marcos in 1986 when Marcos was forced out of office. It is estimated that Marcos was in possession of 73,000 tonnes of gold at that time. In removing Marcos from office, the U.S. was supported by his General Fidel Ramos, who defected from Marcos’s ranks to support Corazon Aquino. Fidel Ramos was later made a Board member of the Carlyle Group. The Marcos gold was removed to a series of banks, most notably Citibank, Chase Manhattan, Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation, UBS and Banker’s Trust, and held in a depository in Kloten Switzerland. Bush administrators involved in the forced departure of Marcos were Richard Armitage and Paul Wolfowitz. Adnan Khashoggi was also involved, helping move the gold. It was at this time that Khashoggi , Shiek Kamal Adham, Khalid bin Mahfouz, and Peter Munk would create a Canadian gold mining company called Barrick Gold.
• Adnan Khashoggi was the international arms merchant that has supported the October Surprise and Iran-Contra deals and helped Marcos sell his gold on the market;
• Shiek Kamal Adham was Chief of Saudi Intelligence;
• Khalid bin Mahfouz was a Saudi investor in several Bush family companies…notably Harken Energy, and a 20% owner of the BCCI. Much later, Kashoggi and Adham would be primary investors in a Dubai base company named Oryx. Oryx, along with U.S. investor Wally Hilliard would be the owner of Huffman Aviation where Mohammad Atta and several September 11 hijackers would do their flight training. Hilliard would later be shown to have the backing of the Bush family, Jeb Bush in particular.
Barrick would become a quiet gold producing partner for a number of major banks, and its activities subject to an FBI investigation into gold-price-fixing. The records on this investigation were kept in the FBI office on the 23rd floor of the North Tower which was destroyed by bomb blasts shortly before the Tower collapsed. The ultimate destination of the Golden Lily Treasure, and the source of the ‘loaned’ gold that flooded the market for 10 years has never been officially explained.
A key player in the Marcos gold would be Banker’s Trust, which was taken over by Alex Brown & Sons, after Banker’s Trust floundered financially on its Russian loans in the mid 1990s. These Russian loans were facilitated by Enron, starting in August of 1993, and very possibly were part of the Project Hammer takeover of Soviet industry.
Alex Brown‘s involvement would bring to the forefront the names of three names of individuals who would play multiple roles in this mystery:
• Buzz Krongard
• Mayo Shattuck
• J Carter Beese Jr.
Buzz Krongard is reported as the mentor of Beese and Shattuck from their years together at Alex Brown. Additionally, he managed the merger between Bankers Trust and Deutschebank Alex Brown. Bankers Trust, Zurich was a key Marcos gold holder. Krongard would move on to become Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown, Vice Chairman of Banker’s Trust, and Executive Director of the CIA at the time of September 11. Mayo Shattuck would be reported to be the personal banker for Adnan Khashoggi and Edgar Bronfmann during their partnership at Barrick Gold. He would move on to become the CEO of Deutschebank who would resign as CEO for unexplained reasons the day after September 11, and would not be at the WTC office that day when the tower collapsed.
It was his bank that was identified as the source of the illegal stock options that indicated there was insider trading taking advantage of the September 11 tragedy. After September 11, he would immediately move over to the firm that would replace Enron as the primary oil and gold derivatives trader – Constellation Energy.
Carter Beese, before showing up to work at Alex Brown was schooled at the CIA training facilities of the U.S. War College and John Hopkins. George H.W. Bush appointed him to the board of directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation in 1992. Since 1992, OPIC has provided more than $4.5 billion in finance and insurance to more than 140 projects in Russia. He was also Chairman of Riggs Bank, as well as an SEC Commissioner (appointed by Bush.) Additionally, he was Chairman at Alex Brown from 1994 to 1997, and would move from there to also be vice-Chairman of Bankers Trust. He was also President of Riggs Capital Partners. Riggs controlled the 18 famous Riggs-Valmet consultants who set up the international financial apparatus for the Russian oligarchs and rogue KGB allowing them to steal the Soviet treasury and destroy the Russian economy. Carter Beese’s death was reported as a suicide in 2006.
What happened to the Marcos gold after it was confiscated by U.S. agents in 1986 has never been reported, but throughout the early 1990s, the world gold market would be befuddled by the mysterious appearance of thousands of tons of gold which appeared to suppress the price of gold. An initial lawsuit was opened against the U.S. Government by renowned lawyer Mel Belli, who represented a relative of the deceased Santa Romana, attempting to claim his gold from Citibank. That suit remained open in 2007. There were two subsequent lawsuits introduced in the U.S. against a number of financial institutions and Alan Greenspan to determine the source of this gold. Gold traders suspected the U.S. Treasury was the source of this gold, and contended that U.S. gold stock was being illegally manipulated for private gain by the bullion banks. The first lawsuit by Reginald Howe was seen as having merit and cause, but was denied by the court for jurisdictional reasons. A second suit by Donald W. Doyle of Blanchard in which Barrick Gold was a primary defendant was settled out-of-court in 2006 and sealed under agreement. Barrick was also mentioned in the Howe suit as a knowledgeable party. In 1992, Barrick had received special treatment from George H.W. Bush during the last several days of his Presidency, when for a nominal $10,000, Barrick received rights to mine deposits ‘valued’ at $10 billion on public domain lands in Nevada.
While there was nothing illegal to the arrangement, a special process put in place by President Bush allowed Barrick to use outside specialists to determine the value of the claim, allowing them to control the appraised value of the deposit. That special process was not made available to other mining applicants. Shortly thereafter, George H.W. Bush served on the Advisory Board of Barrick Gold. In the long term, the Barrick operation would create billions of dollars of paper gold by creating ‘gold derivatives.’ under the reports that a Nevada claim whose potential was doubted by industry experts had actually produced a fortune.
A major distribution channel for the sale of Barrick’s gold futures would be Enron. Enron would also become the vehicle by which oil and gas contracts from the former Soviet Union (vehicles for Soviet money-laundering) were processed, and it too would become collateral damage of the Cold War.
Interestingly, Barrick, which has no mining operations in Europe, uses two refineries
in Switzerland: MKS Finance S.A. and Argor-Heraeus S.A. – both on the Italian border near Milan, a few hours away from the gold depository in Zurich. The question that Barrick and other banks needed to avoid answering is: what gold was Barrick refining in Switzerland, as they have no mines in that region?
Richard Secord Mayo Shattuck, the $10 million dollar man
How Bush Whacked Barrick Gold faux-coup of August 1991 which initiated the last days of Gorbachev and the rise of Yeltsin, Bush and a cadre of rogue KGB officials built a complex international network of banks and holding companies that would be used to takeover ownership of the Soviet economy. Over 300 of these KGB traitors who supported this operation would later be re-located to the US in the early 1990s and pensioned. Periodic CIA reports to Congress would review KGB and organized crime complicity in the takeover of Russia by criminal elements, but all mention of the formidable role of the U.S. would be expunged from Congressional oversight and the public record.
In the first phase of the economic attack on the Soviet Union, George Bush authorized Leo Wanta and others to destabilize the ruble and facilitate the theft of the Soviet/Russian
treasury. This would result in draining the Russian treasury of between 2,000 to 3,000 tons of gold bullion, ($35 billion at the time). This step would be critical to prevent
a monetary defense of the ruble and destabilize the currency. The gold was ‘stolen’ in March of 1991, facilitated by Leo Wanta and signed off by Boris Yeltsin’s right hand man. The majority of the leaked reports from the CIA and FBI suggest the theft of the Russian treasury was a KGB and Communist party operation, but what those reports omitted was the extensive involvement of Boris Yeltsin, the U.S. CIA and the U.S. banking industry.
A key player on the Soviet side of this theft with Wanta was Gregori (a.k.a. Georgy, Georgii) Matyukhin, former KGB official who had been made the first Chairman of the Central Bank, and after the collapse of the economy, was made to resign “for health reasons”. In fact, it was Matyukhin who authorized large capital transfers to Chechnya, the source of the Chechen ‘advice notes’ that Kozlov attributed to as the source of the theft of the Soviet Treasury.
“It all began in the summer of 1991 when Ruslan Khasbulatov, First Deputy of Boris Yeltsin who was then Chairman of the Supreme Soviet of the RSFSR, decided to help his fellow countrymen and instructed head of the Central Bank of the RSFSR Grigory Matyukhin to provide peasant farms in Chechnya with credits…. after the fulfilment of Khasbulatov’s assignment, the tiny republic became the largest issuer in the RSFSR. The share of the incomes of the population paid through money printing exceeded 40% (17% on average across the country). The cash sums received by co-operatives in banks exceeded the cash which they returned by 50 times, which was also far above the level of other territories.” Later, it was discovered that Matyukhin was actually working for the CIA.
In the second phase, Wanta, George Soros and a group of Bush appointees would begin to destabilize the ruble. There were two major operations: the largest was coordinated by Alan Greenspan, Oliver North, and implemented by Leo Wanta. They are accused of fronting $240 billion in covert securities to support the various aspects of this plan. These bonds were created (in part or in whole) from a secretive Durham Trust, managed by ex- OSS/CIA officer, Colonel Russell Hermann. This war chest had been created with the Marcos gold and possibly augmented by illegal inverted yield curve gains on the collateral held by the U.S. during the global debt resettlement on 1989. It’s reported by Hermann’s wife, VK Durham, that Hermann was murdered because he wanted the gold to be held for the American people. V.K. Durham contends these securities are illegal because her husband’ signature was forged on the loan documents, and Photostat copies of the documents posted by Durham on the internet support her case.
The Vulcan’s Declare War on the Soviet Union
Having found a source of funding for an economic war against the Soviet Union, it appears the Bush ‘war cabinet’ who called themselves “the Vulcans” laid out a four phase strategy. These Vulcans would be the very same individuals brought back to public service by George Bush Jr eight years later, under the guidance of the elder Bush and Dick Cheney. In preparation for their war against Communism, and in the years leading up to the failed – or Brigadier General Erle Cocke’s deposition in US District Court, Southern District of New York, April 13, 2000, (provided in full in the back of this book), is a critical starting point for understanding the fund. In page 10 of the deposition, Cocke testifies he has reported on Project Hammer and the gold to every President since Truman. See also “Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold, Sterling and Peggy Seagrave,” Verso, 2005, pp 96-99; the Seagraves explain the origins of the fund and how the Secretary of War proposed the trust to Roosevelt.
The Soviet Coup
It’s All About The Money
The coup would be the third phase. The KGB was well aware of President Bush’s eagerness to see a collapse of Gorbachev. Many who observed the coup described it as faux coup, which was never intended to succeed Yeltsin himself writes in his memoirs that the coup was actually a veiled, pro-Yeltsin coup. The generals who conducted the coup said the same.
The 1991 coup against Gorbachev was engineered by KGB General Vladimir Kruchkov who reported to General Victor Cherbrikov. Both of these men were business partners with Robert Maxwell, a British financial mogul, a documented Israeli secret service agent, and a representative of U.S. intelligence interests. Maxwell assisted Cherbrikov in selling military weaponry to Iran and the Nicaraguan Contras during the course of the Iran Contra deals, and made hundreds of millions of dollars available to Cherbrikov’s Russian banks. Shortly before the attempted coup of 1991, Maxwell met with KGB General Vladimir Kruchkov on Maxwell’s private yacht. A year earlier, it had been Maxwell that initiated the dialogue about a coup with Kruchkov.
In the same month as the coup, Maxwell was in Russia and received $780 million dollars from the CIA via the Israelis to pass on to General Kruchkov. Maxwell’s chief U.S. connection was Senator John Tower, who was long time confidante of George H.W. Bush and participant in the October Surprise. After his Senatorial career, Tower actually worked for Maxwell on the Board of one of Maxwell’s smaller publishing firms – Pergamon-Brassey. In this operation, Maxwell was supported by a former four star general, a retired U.S. Air Force General and a retired British
Major General. It was Tower who released a statement exonerating Bush from involvement in the October Surprise before the Tower Commission had interviewed even a third of the scheduled
witnesses. This statement is now seen as all the more brazen in that the commission was provided
with eye-witness testimony from two individuals who said they saw Bush at the meeting, as well as being provide a list of 16 more witnesses and a video-tape. Tower had arranged for the Israeli
government to provide a $1 billion dollar loan to Maxwell in 1988, and given the generosity
of U.S. financial aid to Israel, it might be fair to argue this was a pass-through loan. Tower had introduced Maxwell to George Bush in 1976, for the sole purpose of using Maxwell as an intermediary between Bush and the Soviet Intelligence. Shortly after the coup, Maxwell died mysteriously on his yacht after attempting to blackmail the U.S. and Israeli intelligence operations. It is widely rumored that he was assassinated by either CIA or Mossad agents in lieu of them delivering his expected blackmail payment. Maxwell’s link back to George Bush died just as mysteriously. Senator Tower died in a plane crash and under suspicious circumstance in April of 1991. Maxwell’s wife was advised by a CIA agent to discourage any investigation
into her husband’s death if she valued her life. The audio tapes he kept of his phone calls with Kruchkov disappeared.
The coup was presented by the media as the haphazard, poorly organized effort of dissident hard-liners, suggesting a group of senior, hardened military officials got drunk, and in a moment of absent-mindedness, decided to overthrow the government.
“The accounts reportedly given by the three imprisoned plotters suggest that their coup was haphazardly planned. Mr. Pavlov, for example, said the plotters simply hoped that the Supreme Soviet would approve their action and that afterward “things would be worked out.” Mr. Yazov said that at a key meeting on Aug. 18 at which the coup was planned, he, Mr. Kryuchkov and a third plotter, Boris K. Pugo, former Interior Minister, who later committed
suicide, were all drunk. Mr. Pavlov told his interrogators that he also consumed “quite a decent amount of alcohol” at that meeting.”
It was widely reported that three of the nine primary conspirators committed suicide after the failed effort. What was rarely mentioned was that two of these senior veterans were thrown out of windows, and a third – Boris Pugo, shot himself in the head three times.
“What’s the hardest way to kill yourself? Three bullets to the head certainly ranks. According
to Moscow police sources, that was the actual cause of death for coup conspirator Boris Pugo, the Soviet Interior Minister who was officially described as having “committed
suicide” when the August putsch fizzled. As for two other top Communist officials reported
to have killed themselves by leaping from windows, sources say they probably were pushed in order to silence them. They apparently knew too much about the smuggling of Communist wealth out of the country as the party collapsed.”
The only individual officially linked to the death of Boris Pugo was Viktor Erin, the KGB officer personally involved in the ‘arrest’ of Boris Pugo. Erin would later become a General Director for Bank Menatep, and be accused of loan fraud and theft, as part of Putin’s crackdown on the Yeltsin gang. Rather than being a coup about ‘policy and honor,’ like so many events linked to Project Hammer, the coup was all about the money. The CIA was moving hundreds of millions of dollars to the Generals before the coup through Robert Maxwell. The people who could best explain the transactions were apparently murdered. The group responsible for the murders are then later linked via Bank Menatep to the financial groups that funded the coup. As for the other traitors in the coup, they were all released from prison two years later by Yeltsin.
The coup actually seems to have been a long time in the making, with Yeltsin having discussed the coup with Bush during his visit to the United States in June of 1991. That same summer, Yeltsin dined ‘discretely’ with the Chairman of the New York Federal Reserve, Gerald Corrigan, while the rest of the Moscow mission dined with Gorbachev. The discussions prompted by Maxwell with Kruchkov regarding Kruchkov’s interest in a coup are dated to the summer of 1990.
The coup began the dissolution of the Soviet Union and the beginning of the reign of Boris Yeltsin and his ‘family’ of Russian Mafiya Oligarchs, and President Nursultan Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan. At that point, the two out of three votes required to dissolve the Soviet Union were in the pocket of President George H.W. Bush, those being the votes of Yeltsin and Nazarbayev.
In the final phase, a series of operatives assigned by President George H.W. Bush would begin the takeover of prized Russian and CIS industrial assets in oil, metals and defense. This was done by financing and managing the money-laundering for the Russian oligarchs through the Bank of New York, AEB and Riggs Bank. All of them, notably Blackstone Investment, would be out to line their own pockets. Blackstone would ultimately turn out to be the investor behind Larry Silverman’s purchase of Building 7 of the WTC six weeks before the September 11 attack. By controlling financial interest in the loss of the WTC, this group could quiet any investment community demand for investigations into the criminals behind the WTC attack. A closer look at other activities leading up to these phases makes it clear that is was a U.S. orchestrated intelligence effort from the beginning. The economic war also involved Gerald Corrigan of the NY Federal Reserve Bank, George Soros, an international currency speculator who was responsible for crashing the British pound a few years earlier, former Ambassador to Germany R. Mark Palmer, and Ronald Lauder- financier and heir to the Este Lauder estate. Palmer and Lauder would lead a group of American
investors in an Operation 21 called the Central European Development Corporation, and combine forces with George Soros and the NM Rothschild Continuation Trust. This group ending up controlling Gazprom, the Russian natural gas giant, while the Riggs group ended up controlling Yukos, the oil giant. Ownership for both remains largely ‘hidden’ today, and its front men enduring the hardships of the Russian wrath by spending time in prison.

What’s the hardest way to kill yourself? Three bullets to the head certainly ranks.
In 1988, Riggs Bank, under the direction of Jonathon Bush and J Carter Beese, would purchase controlling interest in a Swiss company named Valmet. Stephen Curtis, a lawyer from Dubai, controlled Valmet. Curtis died in a helicopter crash in 2005, shortly after telling a friend that if he died in the near future, it would not be an accident. In early 1989, the new subsidiary of Riggs called Riggs-Valmet would initiate contact with a group of KGB officers and their front-men to start setting up an international network for moving money out of the former Soviet block countries. In 1989, Jonathon Bush as an ‘official’ representative of his brother, would tour Eastern Europe and the Ukraine. In November 1989 George H.W. Bush appears to have arranged for Alton G. Keel Jr, a former National Security Agency Director and a minor player in the Iran-Contra scandal, to go to work at Riggs Bank, where Jonathon Bush – George’s brother was an executive Vice President. Keel would head up the International Banking Group. This bank would later be used to funnel money to mujahedin terrorists in Bosnia by Richard Perle, but for now, its target was to become the controlling owner of a small Swiss bank operation known as Valmet. The Riggs-Valmet operation, as it became known, would become the ‘consultants’ to the World Bank and to several KGB front operations run by future Russian oligarchs Khordokovsky, Konanykhine, Berezovsky and Abromovich. The Riggs-Valmet agents would advise the top four oligarchs in how to construct their vast money laundering schemes, and would provide guidance to western investors by touring Russian oil and gas operations to provide guidance on investing. These soon to be Russian
oligarchs had been set-up as front men by KGB Generals Aleksey (a.k.a. Alexei) Kondaurov; and Fillipp (a.k.a. Phillip) Bobkov, who would also sponsor Anton Surikov, also reported as an agent for Western Intelligence. Both Kondaurov and Bobkov previously reported to Victor Cherbrikov, who worked with Robert Maxwell. Both Bobkov and Kruchkov (the August coup leader) were ideologically aligned, and worked together on structuring the Communist Parties economic activities starting in October 1990. Kondaurov and Alexandre Konanykhine would bring a here-to-fore unknown politician and construction foreman named Boris Yeltsin from the hinterlands of Russia to the forefront of Russian politics through generous campaign financing, providing 50% of Yeltsin’s campaign funding. In the meantime, Riggs Bank was quickly solidifying banking relations with a couple more of the old Iran-Contra scandal participants: Swiss bankers
Bruce Rappaport, and Alfred Hartmann. It is through this group that George Soros was engaged, who then opened a second front assault on the ruble. Rappaport and Hartmann would also extend their operations network to include of the Bank of New York, and from Israel, The Eisenberg Group. It is at this stage of the operation that three more groups would be brought into the plan by Rappaport and Hartmann: The Russian Mafiya, the Israeli Mossad, and the Rothschild family interests represented by Jacob Rothschild.
Soros and Rapport would ensure that the Rothschild financial interests would be the silent backers for a number of the undisclosed deals. By example, ten years later when Vladimir Putin sent Khordokovsky to prison for money laundering and tax evasion, Khordokovsky would identify Jacob Rothschild as his major silent partner, and ‘sign over’ his shares in the oil giant Yukos to Rothschild before he went to prison. The Rothschild interests would also been seen on the board of directors of Barrick Gold, which may have been used to launder Russian and Philippines
treasury gold, and later on the Board of the mercenary operation Diligence whose Russian arm would be a Russian mercenary operation known as Farwest Ltd. Farwest was controlled by Anton Surikov, another ex KGB/CIA agent sponsored by Bobkov and Kondaurov.
Rappaport would also introduce an American gentleman named “Bob Klein” to the Russians and his Bank of New York partners. Klein worked with the operation for several years, and when the Feds began its inquiries into the Bank of New York money-laundering scandal in the late 1990s, no one could prove Bob Klein ever existed, and he simply vanished. No one ever thought to suggest that the presence of this “spook” indicated this was an intelligence operation from the very beginning.
In the fourth phase of the secret war, the Enterprise worked on several fronts to take over key energy industries. On the Caspian front of this economic war, James Giffen was sent to Kazakhstan to work with President Nazarbayev in various legal and illegal efforts to gain control of what was estimated to be the world’s largest untapped oil reserves -Kazak oil in the Caspian. Despite much testimony to the contrary, the U.S. government would deny that Giffen was working on its behalf. Giffen would later be tried in the U.S. for money laundering
and corrupt practices. Giffen was convicted but apparently never sentenced. This is a common technique used by the U.S. Department of Justice where the silence of the convicted
party is required. The illegal flow of money from the various oil companies would reach a number of banks. These same oil interests would engage March Rich and the Israeli Eisenberg Group, owned by one of the Mossad’s key operatives, Shaul Eisenberg, to move the oil. (The Eisenberg Group would at some point own almost 50% of Zim Shipping, which mysteriously and inexplicably moved out of the World Trade Center a few weeks before the September 11, attacks.)

Meanwhile, across the Caspian Sea, Bush had assigned a wide array of former Iran-Contra operatives to take a role in Azerbaijan, with the thought of first disrupting the flow of oil to Russia, and then creating an opportunity to build a pipeline from the Caspian to the Black Sea, and later taking over rights to oil plots on the western shelf of the Caspian. Initially, he sent in the covert operatives Richard Armitage and Richard Secord who worked with their old colleague from the Mossad, David Kimche, and their old arms running colleagues Adnan Kashoggi and Farhad Azima to hire, transport, and train several thousand Al Qaeda mercenaries to fight on behalf of the Azeri freedom fighters. Osama Bin Laden was reported to have been part of this mercenary force set up by Armitage and Secord. Osama Bin Laden had been retained by the CIA to recruit Afghan mercenaries
starting in 1979. The recruiting role would later be transferred from Bin Laden to a company called the Allied Media Corp. Coincidentally,
the Allied Media Corp. would be linked through the Moroccan American Chamber of Commerce to Hassan Erroudani, a Florida business partner of Mohammed Atta, the agent reportedly
and allegedly responsible for the September 11th attacks. Of course Atta was not responsible nor was he on the plane. In a second
wave of the Azeri operation, Bush would support the creation of the US Azerbaijan-American Chamber of Commerce and its Advisory Board which included Dick Cheney, Richard Armitage, Richard Perle and Karl Mattison of the Riggs Bank.
Those were the major operations launched to collapse the Soviet economy and take over it’s key assets. These operations were assisted
by a range of allies of the Bush strategy, and traitors to the Soviet Union. As the Soviet Union collapsed, they would line their own pockets, and those of their western backers.
On the Soviet – Russian side of these activities, the record shows that the early oligarchs were sponsored and protected by two KGB Generals:
• Generals Aleksey (a.k.a. Alexei) Kondaurov
• Fillipp (a.k.a. Phillip) Bobkov
These generals, in turn, would be sponsors for the Yeltsin family oligarchs and indirectly accused of arranging for Muslim terrorist
activities to enhance the political future of the Yeltsin family. The individual sponsored by them to coordinate private military activities was Anton Surikov.” He would be a founder of the Russian
private military group named Farwest Ltd. Farwest was an ex-KGB/Russian military operation which would be reported to be used by the Yeltsin family to hire phony “Muslim terrorists” for the purpose of enhancing the Yeltsin family control on the Russian
economy. Members of Far West would be reported by French and US agencies to have dealings with Shamil Basayev, who was trained at CIA funded camps in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Besides his connections to Afghanistan, Basayev was an associate of the Al Qaeda operative Abu Hafs. According to local reports, Abu Hafs was allowed to escape by American forces, and according to one report, was actually captured and released by American forces in Georgia. It pays to have friends in high places.
Page 50 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 51 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Basayev would be reported to be paid by Far West to wage Muslim attacks on Russian civilians. Adnan Khashoggi was reported to be the intermediary for that arrangement, with the meeting taking place at his villa on the Mediterranean. Farwest is financially linked to Alexei Kondaurov and Khordokovsky through The Institute of Globalization Studies (IPROG) for which Surikov works. Far West has received clearance from the CIA to work for Halliburton and Diligence. Diligence and its sister company New Bridge would demonstrate the Western political and financial muscle working with the Yeltsin family. Its key members would include:
• Chairman Richard Burt, Director of Deutschebank Alex Brown, thus linked to Carter Beese, Mayo Shattuck and Buzz Krongard;
• Neil Bush, son of President George HW Bush;
• Ed Rogers, lobbyist and US spokesperson for Shiek Kamal Adham and Adnan Khashoggi, and the Russian Alpha Group. As spokesperson for the Alpha Group, this high level lobbyist represented one of the major Russian crime organizations;
• Lord Powell, who was previously reported on the Advisory Board of Barrick, is widely reported as a spokesperson for the Rothschild family investments;
• William Webster, former Director of the CIA and Director of the FBI
These men, with Halliburton, would become the employers of Far West . In doing so, they would demonstrate their willingness to hire and retain political terrorists. Ultimately the Bush organization partnership with Farwest demonstrates:
• that Adnan Khashoggi, a key participant in multiple aspects of the 9/11 motive and planning, clearly had no hesitation to facilitate operations which result in political
terror and mass murder, and a documented track record of doing just that!
• that the Bush family financial apparatus, including Dick Cheney, conducts on-going business with an organization (Farwest) that arranges contract political terror
using Muslim terrorists with the same background as Al Qaeda, and is a major drug conduit!
• that the Russian/Israeli Mafiya family (the Yeltsin Family in particular) that has reaped billions of dollars from Bush largesse since 1991 uses the same political terrorist professionals as the Bush led intelligence operations!
• that the Bush apparatus belli had other channels besides Richard Armitage and Richard Secord to hire Al Qaeda trained mercenaries!

and the Bush Crime Family
In the late 1980s, under Gorbachev, Generals Bobkov and Kondaurov sponsored
several bright young “Russian’ entrepreneurs, and arranged for them to work with a group of consultants out of Switzerland know as Riggs- Valmet.
This was the very same Riggs operation set up by George Bush in 1988 under the watchful eye of his brother and former National Security Council director. The names of these first generation oligarchs were:
• Mikhail Khordokovsky
• Alexander Konanykhine
• Boris Berezovsky (Berezovskii)
• Roman Abramovich
Alexander Konanykhine would be responsible for up to half of the campaign financing for an unknown Russian Congressman from the remote regions of Russia known as Boris Yeltsin. Yeltsin would win the election and become President of Russia. Under KGB protection, Konanykhine opened a series of banks used for moving Russian money out of Russia, most notably the Russian Exchange Bank, the European Union Bank and his partnership with Mikhail Khordokovsky in the Bank Menatep. The European Union Bank was actually a money laundering operation in Antigua run as an internet bank. The computers used to operate the bank were traced to Val Kulkov, an associate of Konanykhine, at Suite 347, 1429 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC. The internet address for the bank belonged to a block of Internet addresses owned by a company called Aegis. Thayer Equity Investors, of 1445 Pennsylvania Avenue, which controlled Aegis at the time, is located on the third floor of the same building. Thayer Equity’s address was also used at one time by the Hohlt Group, which now resides at 1433 Pennsylvania Avenue, virtually right down the hallway. Interest is taken in these groups, because the men who control them are major financial power brokers of the U.S. Republican Party: Frederick Malek (Thayer Equity) and Richard Hohlt (the Hohlt Group). Hohlt is a reported associate of Richard Armitage.
Oligarch Mikhail Khordokovsky would be responsible for setting up the primary financial organization
for taking over Russian oil and gas industries, as well as moving money out of the country: Bank Menatep. Over time, Riggs would reduce its control of Bank Menatep from 51% to a public 4%, although total ownership of the institution remains cloaked by offshore privacy allowances. Khordokovsky’s dealings would also involve a takeover of the gas industry: Gazprom, and with it AEB, which had been originally controlled by Palmer and Lauder.
Oligarch Roman Abramovich worked with Valmet-Riggs to buy into the Siberian oil giant Sibneft. Abramovich started with an energy trading company called Runicom which was owned totally by Valmet-Riggs. The true beneficial owners of Runicom were never disclosed. Abramovich ran his operations out of the offices of one of the Swiss subsidiaries of Bruce Rappaport, the former BCCI and Iran-Contra banker. Their start-up business was trading oil and gas. As part of his trades, he would soon engage and partner with Oligarch Boris Berezovsky.
Oligarch Boris Berezovsky reportedly received his start as a used car dealer, with strong Mafia connections. He too would be reported to have received guidance from Riggs-Valmet, and would become partners with Roman Abramovich.
His role appears to have been providing the ‘muscle’ behind various financial takeovers where there was a reluctance to sell.
The four of them would control the Russian oil and gas industry, and be front men for the hidden beneficiaries set up under the guidance of the consultants of Riggs-Valmet. This report
speculates that the hidden beneficiaries, if ever found, would ultimately expose the illegal beneficiaries of the Black Eagle Trust, Project Hammer etc., and would be one and the same as the beneficiaries of the $240 billion security clearance in the aftermath of September 11th.
South of Russia, in Kazakhstan, President Nursultan Nazarbayev was working initially with James Giffen to open the oil flow to western
economies. Shortly after Giffen established a foothold, Nazarbayev was working with Shaul Eisenberg, Marc Rich, Dick Cheney and George Soros. The FBI investigation into James Giffen’s activities that might have violated
the U.S. Corrupt Practices act had its records
stored on the 23rd Floor office of the FBI in the World Trade Center. The scope of the Giffen trial was limited by the court to activities from 1994 and forward, against the protests of Giffen’s lawyers. The lawyers contended they needed the scope of Giffen’s activities opened as far back as 1991, so that Giffen could show he was working under White House directives. Pulitzer prize winner Seymour Hersh reported that there were thousands of illegal oil swaps made during the early years under President Nazarbayev’s – but none of these ever came to light during the Giffen trial.

The Great Ruble Scam
Connecting Bush To 911
With an understanding of the economic war being waged on the
Soviet Union, the focus needs to turn to reports that on September 11, 1991, President George Bush was responsible for issuing
$240 billion dollars in secretive bonds
as a part of this attack.
There are six lines of evidence from eight sources that suggest this was indeed the case. Many of these instances are corroborated with documents available on the internet, presented by those making the claims.
1. There has been a body of investigative reporting that suggests that between
1991 and 1992, the ruble was under a massive attack, with an unknown source of funding. The capital flight from the Soviet Union in U.S. dollars was estimated by Fidel Castro at $500 billion, and by Gorbachev at one trillion
dollars. Somebody had to put up the lion’s share of funding for those dollars. The most authoritative source on the subject, Claire Sterling, writes that unknown intelligence operations were behind the attack.
“The fact that scarcely anyone outside Russia has heard of the Great Ruble Scam may be explained partly by its seemingly unbelievable details, but partly,
too, by Western reluctance to touch exquisitely sensitive political nerves. Western governments rejoicing in the collapse of the evil empire wanted to assume, and to all appearances did assume, that all the evils in an emerging democracy emanated from politicians identified with the fallen communist state. Not one was prepared to acknowledge indelicate evidence to the contrary.
The ability of three or four characters to mount such a planet wide operation, their extraordinary impact on what was still a world superpower, and their singular immunity from beginning to end suggest the guiding hand of not just one, but several intelligence agencies.”
Documentation supporting the contention that there was ‘cash’ in this order
of magnitude floating around Russia in 1991 and 1992 is also found in Stephen Handelman’s book Comrade Criminal. Handelman, who appears to have had access to KGB files brought back to the U.S. after the collapse of the Soviet Union, notes that prior to 1991, the Russian Communist Party had a reserve of 435 billion rubles of ‘freely convertible hard currency,” and that in the summer after the coup, there were unnamed individuals in Russia who could provide up to 300 billion rubles on a months notice. In the former instance
435 billion rubles in July of 1991 converts into $240 billion. This fund was converted and moved out of the Soviet Union, and the ruble scam would have needed to provide hard dollars in that order of magnitude. A year later, Handelman’s second examples suggests criminal individuals had at their disposal
$3 to $4.5 billion on short notice. By comparison, at the same time, the U.S. Congress could not pass a $10 billion appropriation bill due to mandatory
budget ceiling constraints.
Page 56 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 57 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
2. Andrei Kozlov, First Deputy Head of Russia’s Central Bank, was heading an investigation into the loss and reported the theft at 400 billion rubles from the Central Bank in 1991. (Not to be confused with a similar scam run out of Chechnya in 1992 on a much smaller order of magnitude.) These rubles were stolen by someone putting hard currency securities in remote Chechen banks as collateral for Russian loans and then making the collateral notes disappear from the remote banks at the same time the funds were being withdrawn. While the black-market value of a ruble was about $1, the ‘official’ conversion rate at the time was 1.8 rubles/dollar. Using the official US dollar equivalent for 400 billion rubles, the theft converted to $222 billion. Kozlov was gunned down shortly after announcing he was close to understanding where the 400 billion rubles went. The head of the Central Bank at that time – former KGB official Georgy Matyuhin – who authorized these credits, on behalf of Yeltsin an at the request of Yeltsin’s First Deputy, Khasbulatov was retired after he was reported to be a CIA asset.
3. Mrs. V.K. Durham, wife of Russell Herman, who was a fund controller for the CIA’s covert fund, has contended in sworn testimony that George H.W. Bush, Oliver North and Alan Greenspan forced her husband into relinquishing
the funding for the bonds on that date. They later forged Hermann’s signature on related financial transactions. She also claims they were responsible for his death three years later because Hermann believed these funds were the property of the U.S. citizens rather than the private slush fund of the Bush circle, and protested the manner in which they were being used. Wanta has since maintained a similar stance, that the earnings from his covert operations
should be public funds rather than a covert slush funds used by U.S. presidents.
4. Several sources from the Office of Naval Investigation (ONI) have released over 100 pages of bank transactions
detailing transactions in the range of 100s of billions of dollars. These are the same files released also by Derek Vreeland from a Canadian prison, from which he warned his guards about the forthcoming attack on the World Trade Center. Vreeland contended he was an ONI operative. The files cover three periods of transactions which correspond to this covert war on the Soviet Union; While the transactions do not directly show securities going to the Soviet Union, they do support the theory that the Bush Vulcans were spending massive amounts of cash in a manner inconsistent with US Federal budget spending caps in effect at the time, and moving massive funding into covert accounts at key trust funds – most notably Pilgrim Investments, to the account of “Jorge” Bush. (Jorge is Spanish for George)
• the first series of transactions in August to October 1989 coincides with the Mexican and Latin American debt resettlement. During this period it has been contended that Bush was responsible for generating 300 hundred billion dollars in illegal earnings by making other countries debt collateral disappear for a few months, while whoever was holding this collateral profited from August 11 to October 6 on what is known as a period of a rare the “inverted yield curve.”
• the second series of transactions from September 24 to October 10, 1990 period would most likely represent funding for the purchase of the Soviet gold treasury, and the movement of Communist Party funds out of the Soviet
Union. Leo Wanta reports having started his efforts at this time.
• the third series of transactions from May 27-28th 1991 would most likely represent funding for his Ruble destabilization
Page 58 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 59 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
5. Documents released from Leo Wanta’s files for these bonds provide
great detail about the Soviet deals:
• These bonds were used to fund an undesignated “joint venture” with Russia.
Coincidentally, On 14 September 1991, Vladimir Shcherbakov, the last First Deputy Prime Minister of the Soviet Union, formed the International
Foundation for Privatization and Private Investment (FPI) with two other partners. The second partner has never been revealed. The third partner was the now notorious Austrian firm, Nordex GmbH. The International Foundation for Privatization and Private Investment (FPI)would be one of the major organizations involved in the Bank of New York money- laundering scandal and a major crime front. Interpol would be reported as making Marc Rich one of the founders of Nordex. Marc Rich would be pardoned by President William
Clinton, presumably for his services to the US in arranging for the collapse of the Soviet Union, although the reasons for his pardon have never been made public.
• These bonds were backed by Swiss gold held in vault in the free trade zone in Kloten, Switzerland.
The Kloten repository resides at the Zurich airport, which the Marcos gold hoard as well as the stolen Soviet treasury gold was reported as being stored at.
“… tons of the loot was liberated by Ferdinand Marcos before his ouster. Billions of dollars worth were shipped overseas by American intelligence agents and the Mafia. Much of the horde was cabbaged away in a high-security, subterranean storage cache buried beneath the Zurich airport.
• The bonds were made conditional to loan acceptance by government
officials in the USSR.
• These bonds provided, in part, of payments of currency from Lehman
of at least $100 million per day for an indefinite period of time.
• These bonds provided, cash funneled to Russia through the Deutschebank.
6. Depositions on Project Hammer seems inextricably linked to the same banks and funds as the information being documented by Vreeland, ONI and Wanta:
• General Earl Cock’s deathbed deposition in April 2000 describes Citibank’s and John Reed’s central involvement in Project Hammer in the last quarter of 1991 as being funded with $223 billion dollars, of mostly CIA moneys. Cocke also references the use of baby bonds to collaterize these funds, which are 10 year bonds. Cocke describes the source of these funds as “accounts, participants or players” with the accounts converting to bank ownership upon the death of the controlling party, and then to the government. This matches exactly what Sterling and Peggy Seagrave claim happens to the gold accounts opened by agents of the US;
• Roelfo Van Rooyen’s deposition in 1995 describes Project Hammer as a 1991 CIA operation.

WHY September 11th
The Cover-up Of The Black Eagle Trust and Project Hammer
With the bonds out in the market, they sat for ten years, like a ticking time bomb. At some point, they had to be settled -or cashed in, on September 11, 2001. The two firms in the U.S. most likely to be handling them would be Cantor Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers – the two largest government securities firms in the U.S. The federal agency mostly involved in investigating those transactions was the Office of Naval Intelligence
On that day, those same three organizations: the two largest government securities brokers and the Office of Naval Intelligence in the US took near direct hits. Actually, the jetliners hit immediately below the targeted offices, assuring
that the flames would engulf the floors above. This targeting strategy was also used on the 23rd floor of the North tower, which was an FBI evidence repository holding information on allegedly illegal gold transactions.
The attacks had a related agenda. It seems that the covert Cold War operation started in 1989 had resulted in a series of foreign and U.S. allegations of financial impropriety, and as a result there were at least nine federal investigations being conducted into bank accounts
related to these operations. All of these investigations were initiated, in 1997-98 timeframe, which was the same year that Osama
Bin Laden – after twenty years of recruiting Mujahadeen for the U.S. covert wars – announced a fatwa against the US. (A key understanding here is that federal investigations are preceded by a period of ‘quiet’ investigation before an official investigation is publicly announced.)
1. The Marcos Gold Hearing began in Los Angeles, in August 1997. The banks and accounts involved in that hearing, were the Swiss banks: UBS, and Bank Julius Baer.
2. The Eizenstatz Report and a public campaign waged by the Simon
Wiesenthal Center launched suits against three Swiss banks.
3. The Reginald Howe suit- in which the U.S. bullion banks were accused of dumping U.S. Treasury gold on the market illegally. The Reginald Howe & GATA Lawsuit was filed on Jan 8, 2000 naming Deutschebank (a.k.a. Deutschebank Alex Brown), U.S. Treasury, Alan Greenspan, Federal Reserve, Citibank, Chase, as defendants. Also mentioned as having non-public knowledge of the scheme are Gerald Corrigan and Barrick Gold. (The 2000 filing suggests
investigations began long before.)
4. The Bank of New York money laundering scandal: the Department of Justice was under pressure to investigate accounts of multiple individuals who benefited from these transactions: Loutchansky, Marc Rich and Berezovsky (Berezovskii.) The FBI investigation started in the Fall of 1998, The investor lawsuit was opened in September 1999. These investigations involved accounts at Credit Suisse, Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), Dresdner Bank, Westdeutsche Landesbank and Banque Internacionale of Luxembourg All of these individual would at some point be mentioned as playing a role in the money laundering scandal at the Bank of New York, that would ultimately be reopened in 2002, after being buried for three years by federal prosecutor Mary Jo White, a first cousin to former President George Bush.
5. The Avisma law suit was filed Aug 19, 1999 naming as defendants Bank Menatep, Harvard Institute for International
Development, and the Bank of New York;
6. The federal investigation of Konanykhine’s European Union Bank: The Konanykhine investigation was begun by the INS in February 1999. Other banks included in that investigation would have been the European Union Bank and Bank Menatep.
7. Richard Giffen/Mobil Oil scandal- The FBI Probe began in 1999, and would have involved accounts at Credit Suisse, Bank of New York, Cayman Islands, and the Deutsche Bank (a.k.a. Deutschebank Alex Brown).,
8. Yeltsin’s UBS accounts were being investigated for bribery.
9. Kevin Ingram would testify that he had advised Bob Graham in advance that the World Trade Center was to be attacked. This Deutsche Bank executive was convicted of laundering money for weapons purchases for Muslim terrorists through Pakistani agents; The Ingram investigation was begun by the FBI as early as July 1999, and involved the Deutschebank (a.k.a. Deutschebank Alex Brown).
The records for some of these investigations resided in Building Six, Building Seven and on the 23rd Floor FBI office in the North Tower. The account structure set up by the U.S. intelligence operations
was besieged by investigations from nine different directions,
any one of which may have exposed the source of that funding, and traced it to its Black Eagle Fund origins. Those investigations
needed to be diverted.
What happened inside the buildings of the World Trade on September
11 is difficult, but not impossible to discern. The government has put a seal on the testimony gathered by the investigating 911 Commission, and instructed government employees to not speak on the matter or suffer severe penalties, but there are a number of personal testimonies posted on the internet as to what happened in those buildings that day. Careful reconstruction from those testimonies
indicates the deliberate destruction of evidence not only by a targeted assault on the buildings, but also by targeted fires and explosions. In the event that either the hijacking failed, or the buildings were not brought down, the evidence would be destroyed by fires. In addition to the investigative evidence being destroyed, the Federal Register reported that the physical securities held by the brokers in their vaults had been destroyed.
What would be even more revealing would be the actions of the Federal Reserve Bank and the Securities and Exchange Commission on that day, and in the immediate aftermath. As one of many coincidences on September 11, the Federal Reserve Bank was operating its information system from its remote back-up site rather than it’s downtown headquarters. The SEC and Federal Reserve system remained unfazed by the attack on September 11. All of their systems continued to operate. The two major security trading firms had their trade data backed up on remote systems. Nevertheless, the Commission for the first time invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k)2 and issued several orders to ease certain regulatory restrictions temporarily.
Page 64 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 65 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
On the first day of the crisis, the SEC lifted “Rule 15c3-3 – Customer Protection –
Reserves and Custody of Securities,” which set trading rules for the following processes:
1. The [seller] is not permitted to substitute other securities for those subject to this agreement an therefore must keep the [buyer’s] securities segregated at all times, unless in this agreement the [buyer] grants the [seller] the right to substitute other securities;
2. Notification in the event of failure to make a required deposit;
3. Physical possession or control of securities;
4. Required Disclosure;
5. Control of securities/Requirement to reduce securities to possession or control.
Simply, GSCC was allowed to substitute securities for the physical securities destroyed
during the attack. “…collateral substitutions can and should be made with regard to immediately maturing collateral.”
Subsequent to that ruling, the GSCC issued another memo expanding blind broker settlements. A “blind broker” is a mechanism for inter-dealer transactions that maintains
the anonymity of both parties to the trade. The broker serves as the agent to the principals’ transactions.
“The only repo transactions entered into by blind brokers should be those done in direct furtherance of clean-up and reconciliation efforts. No new blind brokered business should be executed.”
At this point in time, the Federal Reserve and its GSCC had created a settlement environment totally void of controls and reporting – where it could substitute valid, new government securities for the mature, illegal securities, and not have to record where the bad securities came from, or where the new securities went – all because the paper for the primary brokers for US securities had been eliminated.
This act alone, however was inadequate to resolve the problem, because the Federal Reserve did not haveenough “takers” of the new 10 year notes. Rather than simply having to match buy and sell orders, which was the essence of resolving the “fail” problem, it appears the Fed was doing more than just matching and balancing – it was pushing new notes on the market with a special auction. It appears some of the beneficiaries wanted to cash out!
“Acute settlement problems with the on-the-run ten-year note led the U.S. Treasury to reopen the issue on October 4 and hold an unusual “snap” auction of new ten-year securities.”
If the Federal Reserve had to cover-up the clearance of $240 Billion in covert securities,
they could not let the volume of capital shrink by that much in the time of a monetary crisis. They would have had to push excess liquidity into the market, and then phase it out for a soft landing, which is exactly what appears to have happened. In about two months, the money supply was back to where it was prior to 9/11. How the Federal Reserve managed this feat is explained in the following section.

The Federal Reserve and the Three Card Monte
America, You’ve Been Bushed
On of the most common scams on the streets of urban America is a set up of three card Monte. The intricacies of the scam are legion, but essentially, the dealer’s sleight of hand which fools the mark is covered by a rapid rotation of the three cards. It was the rapid rotation of the securities settlement fails in the aftermath of September 11th that appears to have allowed the Bank of New York and the Federal Reserve to engage in a securities refinancing that resulted in the American taxpayer refinancing
the $240 billion originally used for the Great Ruble Scam.
A review of the explanations for the actions of the Federal Reserve after September 11th exposes an amazingly complex web of analysis and speculation. The reports published by the Federal Reserve argue that the Federal Reserve’s actions increasing the monetary supply by over $300 billion were justified to overcome operational difficulties in the financial sector. While impressive as the reports are, what is noted by the casual reader is that all of the Federal Reserve analysis is speculative and suggestive, using phraseology such as “may have,” “likely,” “presumably,” or “should have.” There are few – if any – definitive statements about root cause and the appropriateness of the Federal Reserve response.
The general perspective of the industry is captured in such comments as:
“The destructive force of the attacks themselves caused severe disruptions to the U.S. banking system,
particularly in banks’ abilities to send payments. The physical disruptions caused by the attacks included outages of telephone switching equipment in Lower Manhattan’s financial district, impaired records processing and communications systems at individual banks, the evacuation of buildings that were the sites for the payments operations of large banks, and the suspended delivery of checks by air couriers.”
Liquidity Effects of the Events of September 11, 2001, James J. McAndrews and Simon M. Potter,
FRBNY Economic Policy Review / November 2002, p. 59
“Following September 11, open market operations were aimed at satisfying the financing needs of the severely disrupted government securities dealer community, leaving to the discount window the task of elastically providing balances to satisfy demand at the target rate. The huge additions of funds following September 11 were therefore a by-product of operating procedures designed to target the overnight funds rate.”
Payment System Disruptions and the Federal Reserve Following September 11, 2001, Jeffrey M. Lacker,

of Monetary Economics, Volume 51, Issue 5, July 2004, Pages 935-965
“Fails rose initially because of the destruction of trade records and communication facilities. They remained high because the method typically used to avert or remedy a fail—borrowing a security through a special collateral repurchase agreement—proved as costly as failing to deliver the security.”

Reading statements like this are suggestive that there were massive, wide spread disruptions in the system. These were the conditions that “led policymakers to depart so significantly from previous debt management practices.”
Page 68 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 69 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
While the facts presented by the Federal Reserve analyst’s reports are true, as presented they tend to distort what really happened in the aftermath of the attack. In truth, while the analysts reported disruptions at over 800 banks, a deeper look at the reports indicated that only “a few’ were seriously disrupted. The order of magnitude of disruption at any bank was never quantified, with the exception of one. Even that statement however, detracts from the data which suggest that the disruptions were essentially concentrated in one bank – the Bank of New York. (The same Bank of New York was being investigated for money laundering charges in relation to the economic
pillaging of Russia by criminal oligarchs who were financed with the covert securities purportedly being laundered in the aftermath of September 11th.) This is because while the Fed was reporting outstanding accountbalances over $100 billion per day (while not identifying the banks involved), the Wall Street Journal reported:
“At one point during the week after September 11, BoNY publicly
reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments.”
The Deutschebank, which sat inside the World Trade Center and was totally decimated, reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of only two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub, reported no such increase in its account balance. No one has publicly asked: why is it that these other two banks were not seriously disrupted, while the Bank of New York – which had no structural
damage, seemed unable to operate? Understanding what was happening at the BoNY becomes critical to understanding the securities settlement issues:
GSCC and several dealers could not verify what came into and what left their custodial accounts at BoNY, they could not advise BoNY of securities they expected to receive, and they could not give BoNY instructions for delivering securities. Additionally,
GSCC was unable to verify the movement of funds into and out of its account at BoNY (GSCC Important Notice GSCC068.01).
In a world of coincidences, The Bank of New York (which had over 8,000 employees in its downtown location), lost three employees
that day. One of those three employees was a man who was in the best position to explain how the attacks would have impacted BoNY. His name was Michael Diaz-Piedra III, a former
West Point graduate and son of a Cuban exile. Michael was the Vice-President of Disaster Recovery Planning for the Bank of New York. In the aftermath of September 11, he was reported as being an employee of Bank of America, or holding another position at the BoNY.
Finally, with respect to the Bank of New York operations and the level of disruption experienced on September 11th, an important element needs to be highlighted. Disruptions to the financial system were attributed to the loss of the communications hub in downtown Manhattan. The telephone network operations center (NOC) or hub was decimated when the WTC collapsed onto it. However, the BoNY Funding Transfer operations, which reportedly
could not communicate with the Fed, were located in Utica, New York, and had none of its communication abilities impaired. Moreover, the four BoNY back-up datacenters were all located within 46 miles of Manhattan, and could and did deliver data on tape regularly to the Fed via courier. In a reported setting of half truths and speculation by Federal Reserve analysts made to appear as facts, review of the reports of the financial aftermath of September 11th suggest:
• The disruptions to the U.S. financial system were not as widespread as the reports from the Federal Reserve would have the public believe, but that the public had to be made to perceive a widespread need for declaring a national financial emergency, suspending
key provisions of the Federal Reserve
Act and driving the ‘ten-year special
rate’ to almost zero.
• Certain key unknown figures in the Federal Reserve may have ‘conspired’ with key unknown figures at the Bank of New York to create a situation where $240 billion in off balance sheet securities
created in 1991 as part of an official covert operation to overthrow the Soviet
Union, could be cleared without publicly
acknowledging their existence.
• These securities, originally managed by Cantor Fitzgerald, were cleared and settled in the aftermath of September
11th through the BoNY. The $100 billion account balance bubble reported by the Wall Street Journal as being experienced in the BoNY was tip of a three day operation, when these securities were moved from off-balance-
sheet to the balance sheet. (The off-balance-sheet process is described by banking advisor to the US Presidents
Earl Cocke, who admitted under sworn testimony to managing Project Hammer funds – the suspected source of these illegal securities.)
• By reducing the ‘ten-year special rate’ to almost zero, the Fed structurally
increased the number of refinancing
(Repo) settlement fails. Under the umbrella
of this artificially created statistical bump of fails, the high level of fails due to the laundering of the $240 billion was able to be processed unnoticed.
• The cover for this bubble is found in the footnotes to the BoNY annual and quarterly reports, which report that the BoNY took over $330 billion of commercial securities business from U.S. Trust between June and October of 2001, although the assets under control of U.S. Trust in 2000 were reported by two sources as $80 billion or $86 billion.

Federal Reserve Manages The Fire
In the Aftermath of September 11
There were two key disruptions reported in the financial markets:
1. Excessive account balances in a few banks reportedly contributing to an increase in the account
balance in a wide array of banks which required a massive infusion of credit to stabilize the Federal Reserve system. These accumulations started appearing on September 12th and ran through the 18th,. They resulted in the addition of $300 billion to the US monetary supply, which initiated the on-set of the sub-prime market.
2. A reported excessive number of fails in securities settling requiring the lifting of controls on settlements.
There were two reasons reported for these fails:
• Missing trade data due to loss of communications and data;
• Refinancing (Repo) settlements had lost any financial incentive to avoid fails because the special
rate for 10 year notes was dropped to almost zero.
The first wave of fails is attributed to the BoNY situation.
“In the absence of complete information on deliveries into and out of its account at BoNY on September 11, and as a result of its assumption of settlement fails on the starting legs of blind-brokered
RPs, GSCC recorded (after the close of business on September 11) $266 billion in transactions
that apparently failed to settle…. Continuing connectivity problems prevented GSCC from giving BoNY delivery instructions after the close of business on September 11 and prevented it from acquiring information on activity in its account at BoNY during the day on September 12. Consequently, GSCC recorded $440 billion in settlement fails as of the close of business on September 12.”
Page 72 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 73 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Excessive Balances Increasing
the Supply of Money
On over-riding consideration in the Fed’s management of the aftermath of September 11th was the concentration in account balances at the Federal Reserve.
“It is clear that the concentration in account balances at the Federal Reserve—rising more than fourteen- fold from its normal levels on the days following the terrorist attacks—was a most unusual event…. If a large proportion of the balances in the banking system concentrate in one bank’s account, then other banks will face, all else being equal, higher costs of making payments, or alternatively may face liquidity
constraints on their borrowing, which could preclude their submission of further payments.”
It may seem a small detail, but note the qualifying statement: “all else being equal.” An alternative explanation could be to move off-balance sheet liabilities to the balance
sheet and claim the offsetting claims are in the rubble of the World Trade Center.
Chart (at right) taken from [Liquidity Effects of the Events of September 11, 2001, James J. McAndrews and Simon M. Potter, Federal Reserve Bank of New York Economic
Policy Review, November 2002, p.64.
Page 74 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 75 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
A key consideration is the pre-9/11 daily average for this balance: “For commercial banks, these balances consist of either required reserve balances, excess reserve balances, or service-related balances.3 These balances and service-related balances for August 2001 averaged $14.65 billion per day. This makes the actual surges due to the attack show a net impact of $352 billion on the account balance over the remainder of the week .
What appears to be the case is that the Federal Reserve imbalances reported on three consecutive days in the aftermath
were largely concentrated at the Bank of New York, which is reported to represent over 90% of the imbalance, suggesting the Bank had been the recipient of massive fund transfers, and unable to send out transfers.
“At one point during the week after September 11, BoNY publicly reported to be overdue on $100 billion in payments.
This supposedly was due to major communication and system failures.
“The crucial government bond processing, for example, had a system in which a second computer was receiving and processing all the data going into the main computer, making it ready to pick up at a moment’s notice…. As it turned out, though, even the expensive backup system was unable to get the government bond business up and running smoothly. That is largely because of problems maintaining the communications links that receive information on trades from its customers and report their positions back to them. ‘’In many cases our backup sites were dealing with our customers’
backup sites,’’ Mr. Renyi said. And though the bank had established communications lines in advance connecting these various backup centers, they often were of low capacity and typically had not been fully tested and debugged. Even a week after the attack, the Bank of New York was having
trouble with some crucial communications links, like its connection to the Government Securities Clearing Corporation, a central part of the government bond market. On several days that week, the bank had to drive computer tapes with its trades to G.S.C.C. offices.”
“On September 11, we were able to continue processing, as our funds transfer business unit is in Utica, New York, until the telecommunications lines went down later in the day in lower Manhattan. After that, excess liquidity quickly built up because we were unable to process all securities and cash transactions
in a normal manner. The increase in the balance sheet went away very quickly, however, as we returned to normal processing by Friday and handled the backlog over the weekend.”
In fact, none of the BoNY’s systems failed or went non-operational.
“Bank executives argue that some of the criticism has taken on some aspects of urban legend, especially the notion that the bank was in disarray because the main backup for its computer center in Lower Manhattan was at another location in Lower Manhattan. The bank says that all of its several computer centers in Manhattan were always set to revert to centers outside the city in case of emergency, and they did on Sept. 11.”
Even more to the point, the Bank’s Fund Transfer operations are located in Utica New York, and its communication systems remained untouched.
Where the inconsistent reporting gets interesting is that
Todd Gibbons of the BoNY reported an “increase” in the
volume of securities on September 11.
Page 76 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 77 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
There is every reason to believe activities in the BoNY in the aftermath of September 11th are worthy of suspicion.
“The contingency site muse be able not only to accommodate normal business loads, it must be able to accommodate extreme business surges, such as we saw in the first day in the equities market. Our contingency plans had included the ability to handle a great amount of excess capacity;
and we were able to handle the increase in volumes….”
However, the overall volumes for the day were 25% less than normal and one third of the volume or $400 billion came in after normal business hours in very few transactions. As seen in the chart below, overall transactions for the day were seemingly down even more significantly than volume, but the transactions that came in after closing were extremely large, averaging in size in packages of $35million or more. This would be consistent with a hypothesis that $240 billion of securities were being
pushed surreptitiously into the money supply. Additionally, the conflicting information from the BoNY and Fed suggest the activity in the bank was different that that being reported to the public.
“August 2001, the value of Fedwire funds transfers averaged more than $1.6 trillion per day, while banks held about $15 billion on account.
The value of funds sent on September 11 was $1.2 trillion, about three-fourths of the average for the benchmark period. However,
unlike volume, the value of funds sent had returned to normal levels on the twelfth and was then at elevated levels for the next seven business days.”
[Liquidity Effects of the Events of September 11, 2001, James J. McAndrews and Simon M. Potter, Federal Reserve Bank of New York Economic Policy Review, November 2002, p65. ]
The Federal Reserve, without providing the detail required to substantiate
it’s claims, would have the public believe that there were widespread liquidity issues, when in fact the issues were very concentrated primarily, if not singularly, in the BoNY, which has been the subject of an ongoing major money-laundering investigation for many years. These account balance issues resulted in the defacto expansion of the monetary supply, details of which are no longer reported by the Federal Reserve. The reported cause of this market malfunction is seemingly suspect. By comparison, the Deutschebank which sat inside the World Trade Center reported no such account balance increase, and JP Morgan, the other of two clearing banks which uses the same traders and communications hub reported no such increase in account balance. Additionally, while problems were being documented between the BoNY and GCSS, no other institution had those problems.
“…it is worth noting that settlements occurred at the major large-value private sector settlement systems (the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation
and the Clearing House Inter-bank Payments System [CHIPS]) on the eleventh and subsequent days.”210

In the aftermath of September 11th, the analysts at the Fed attributed the security settlement failures to two causes:
• the initial inability to match up trades with correspondent data, and,
• the use of ‘strategic’ fails by brokers in the aftermath, when the special rate on securities was so low that there was no incentive to avoid the refinancing fail. This reduction in the special rate was attributed to operations to increase liquidity in response to excess balance issue discussed in the section above.
One key Federal Reserve researcher summarized it accordingly:
“Fails rose initially because of the destruction of trade records and communication facilities. They remained high because the method typically used to avert or remedy a fail—borrowing a security
through a special collateral repurchase agreement—proved as costly as failing to deliver the security. The U.S. Treasury responded
to the fails problem by reopening the on-the-run ten-year note. The increased supply made borrowing the note more attractive
The standard remedy for a fail—borrowing a security through a special collateral repurchase agreement— fell apart when the Fed dropped the special rate to nearly zero. As a result, a second, ongoing ‘wave’ of ‘fails’ was created by removing the incentive for regular traders to avoid fails. It is this structurally created second wave that masked the underlying wave of fails due to the loss of the covert funding notes.
“The Desk “had to accept the vast majority of propositions – even those offered at rates well below the new 3 percent target level – in order to arrange RPs of sufficient size.”
(Markets Group of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York 2002, p. 24) On Wednesday, the Desk accepted all propositions submitted, the lowest of which was 3⁄4 percent: see Table 2. The effective federal funds rate sank to 11⁄4 percent on Tuesday and below that on Wednesday.)
“The incentive of a seller to borrow securities to avoid or cure a fail declines with the specials rate for the security. When the specials rate is near zero, a seller has little to gain lending money (at nearly no interest) to borrow the needed securities.
13 This suggests that market participants may have little incentive to break daisy chains and round robins when the specials rate for a security is near zero. This aspect of the market is important to understanding the fails problem after September 11…. the specials rate for a security will be driven to its lower limit more frequently when the fed funds rate, and hence the general collateral rate, is lower. This follows because the gross compensation earned by a lender of securities at any given specials rate is the difference between the general collateral rate and the specials rate.”
As shown in the following chart, the specials rate dropped by 200 -300 basis points, creating a disincentive to resolve short term, repo fails and creating a statistical flurry of fails.
[When the Back Office Moved to the Front Burner: Settlement Fails in the Treasury Market after 9/11, Michael J. Fleming and Kenneth D. Garbade,
FRBNY Economic Policy Review / November 2002, p 41.]
Page 80 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 81 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
The response of the Fed in bringing a new issue to the market at this time seems to have inadvertently been the source of continued lower “special rates” on the ten year note, and exacerbated the fail problem through the end of the year. In the extended condition of a high level of settlement fails, it would require little effort to ‘statistically hide’ the settlement of the remaining $240 billion that may not have been cleared in the immediate aftermath. The three week lull of fails in October could easily represent the 30 day short term refinancing of the debt. As the debt came back to the market for permanent refinancing, a shortage of investors
would result in more fails.
The critical perspective here is that in making the original paper on $240 Billion in covert notes disappear in the rubble of the World Trade Center, it would be implausible to refinance them in a few days without the financial world taking note. Notes could conceivably be refinanced
for 30 days in the repo market, and the final refinancing extended for weeks, possibly months.
There is a contention that at the core of the September 11th attack, someone was planning to cover the 1991 issuance of $240 billion in covert securities used to finance the collapse the Soviet Union. The facts surrounding the financial aftermath of September 11 suggest this is not only possible, but that reports describing the aftermath have deliberately been misleading.
• The US dollar money supply was significantly increased in the aftermath of 9/11;
• The bank at the core of the illegal money laundering by ex-Soviet criminals was the source of the increased money supply (BoNY);
• The generally disseminated rationale for BoNY’s operational problems seems to have affected
no other bank in a similar manner or magnitude and is inconsistent with reports on the BoNY operations in the aftermath;
• A key witness who might provide insight to these issues is a statistically aberrant death;
• The source of the BoNY’s $330 billion increase in assets is cloaked under the privilege of “private banking;”
• The only alleged “severe” disruption to the financial systems was the Federal Reserves account balance and the securities trading fails – both systems required to hide the laundering
of $240 billion in covert securities. This is not a ‘proof’ that $240 billion was laundered, but it provides probable cause for paying serious attention to Durham’s claim that it was indeed what happened. When one looks deep enough into the murky cloud of black ops and secret financing – the world of Durham’s husband – her claims regarding 1991 and 2001 begin to gather credibility.

• Mohammed Atta, reportedly responsible for coordinating the attacks, trained his men and himself at the Huffman
Aviation -Flight Training school. That school was funded by Wally Hilliard, with Oryx Corporation. Oryx was founded by Adnan Khashoggi and Sheik Kamal Adham, director of Saudi intelligence (1963-79). Khashoggi was the individual that brokered the meeting between terrorists and the Yeltsin Family. Khashoggi was also extensively
involved in the following Bush operations: October Surprise, Iran-Contra, Azerbaijan, Barrick Gold, Marcos Gold.
• Mohammed Atta during his time in the U.S. remained a close friend of Wolfgang Bohringer, an apparent CIA agent.
• Hilliard, nominal owner of the training facility which acted as cover for the terrorists, is a significant investor in a small California defense/electronics company (Spatialight, Inc.) with Farhad Azima, another of the Iran-Contra/
Azerbaijan group. Azima’s role had been to coordinate air transportation for covert US intelligence operations for Iran-Contra and Azerbaijan.
• Hilliard is reported as a close friend of CIA agent Mark Schubin, whose father was a KGB colonel.
• Hilliard is also strongly linked to the Jeb Bush political machine in Florida, and has had his commercial
transport operations endorsed by that group.
• Mohammad Atta, as can best be determined, received funding from three foreign intelligence agencies aligned with the US: Pakistan, Syria and Germany. His father contended he actually worked for a fourth – the Mossad!
• Director of the ISI (Pakistani) Intelligence (director-general Lt-Gen Mahmud Ahmad. The week of September 11, General Ahmad was meeting with Bob Graham, Porter Goss and Richard Armitage. Gen Mahmud Ahmad
was responsible for having $100,000 transferred to Mohammed Atta.
• While in Germany, Atta worked as an employee of Tatex Trading which was owned primarily by Mohamad Majed Said, a former head of Syria’s General Intelligence Directorate.
• In coming to Germany, Atta was funded with a scholarship and employed as a tutor by an organization known as Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft. Subsequent
Internet reports linked the Carl Duisberg Society to administration by the U.S. Information Agency, but this had not been verified by any government
documentation. There are Internet reports that the scholarship was jointly funded by US AID. The more interesting aspect of Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft is that it’s Managing Director is Bernd Schleich, the same individual
who is Managing Director of InWEnt (Internationale Weiterbildung und Entwicklung. If one investigates the activities and research of InWEnt, it appears to be a commercial intelligence operation that does studies on such matters as money-laundering, weapons trades, drug smuggling, and anthrax control in such places as South America, Central Asia and Africa.

• Mohammed Atta’s father claimed his son was working for the Mossad. Supporting this view, Atta was reported as having left phone records of call to a company named “Virtual Prototypes.” Virtual Prototypes Inc. would later change its name to eNGENUITY
Technologies. It seems as though the type of work done at eNGENUITY was of more interest to the Israeli government, than it might be of use to a group such as Al Qaeda, as the Israelis made significant purchases from eNGENUITY three years later.
• Mohammed Atta would be discovered to be a legal business partner to Hassan Erroudani, who through the Moroccan
American Chamber of Commerce would be associated with the Allied Media Group, a major recruiter for US Defense organization and private security firms. Their customers would include:
• US Army
• US Treasury
• Department of Justice
• Department of State
•Young & Rubicam
• Burson Marsteller
Atta and his sponsor’s were not jihadists.
As a “terrorist pilot” he spent his last year in the U.S. in the companionship of two CIA pilots (Schubin and Bhoringer). He trained his team at a facility financed by a known financier for CIA operations (Khashoggi). He was a business partner with a CIA recruiter (Erroudani). He was funded by up to four pro-CIA intelligence agencies.

For at least four years while living
in Hamburg during the 1990’s terrorist ringleader Mohamed Atta was part of a ‘joint venture’
between the U.S. and German Governments,
the MadCowMorning News has learned, an elite international
‘exchange’ program run by a little-known private organization with close ties to powerful American
political figures like David Rockefeller and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The jointly-funded government effort picked up the tab for Atta on sojourns in Cairo, Istanbul, and Aleppo in Syria during the years 1994 and 1995 and employed him as a ‘tutor’ and ‘seminar
participant’ during 1996 and 1997. Note that Atta’s German sponsorship may have dated to 1992 (when the elder George Bush was in office, the Project for a New American Century’s blueprint
for US control of the MiddleEast was formulated by Paul Wolfowitz in 1992, when he was working
for the elder Bush. The possibility that the 1992 sponsorship of Atta by his mysterious German
benefactors and Wolfowitz’s 1992 projections are connected is not one to be too readily
Moreover Atta’s financial relationship with the U.S.-German government effort may even have extended back to his initial move from Egypt to Germany in 1992, after being ‘recruited’ in Cairo by a mysterious German couple dubbed the ‘hijacker’s sponsors’ in a recent news account in the Chicago Tribune. In the years before he became a ‘terrorist ringleader,’ Atta was enjoying
the patronage of a government initiative overseen by the U.S. State Department and the German
Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, the German equivalent of the U.S. Agency currently supervising the secretive bidding race for tens of billions of dollars of post-war reconstruction contracts in Iraq, the Agency for International Development.”
The organization that apparently sponsored Atta’s travels was the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft (its American component is the Carl Duisberg Society)—named for one of the principal figures in the founding of I.G. Farben. News that Mohamed Atta had been on the payroll of an elite international
program known as the ‘Congress-Bundestag Program first surfaced a month after the 9/11 attack in a brief seven-line report by German newspaper Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung on 10/18/2001 under the headline ‘Atta was Tutor for Scholarship Holders.’
The story quoted a spokesman for ‘Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft,’ described as a ‘German international further education organization,’ as having admitted paying Hamburg cadre principal Atta as a ‘scholarshipholder’ and ‘tutor,’ as the spokesman put it, between 1995 and 1997.”
But the shocking revelation that Atta had therefore been on the payroll of a joint U.S.-German government program was concealed by the newspaper through the simple expedientof neglecting
to mention that the ‘Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft’ was merely a private entity set up to administer
an official U.S. and German government initiative. The U.S. end of the program is run out of an address at United Nations Plaza in New York by CDS International.
The letters stand for Carl Duisberg Society, which is also the name of its German counterpart
in Cologne, the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft. Both are named for Carl Duisberg, a German chemist and industrialist who headed the Bayer Corporation during the 1920’s. CDS International, states the organization’s literature, provides opportunities for young German
These young German engineers earn real world experience and are given assignments to contribute from the start,’ a program spokesman enthused in a newspaper interview . . .” Having
powerful friends in such high places may also explain the curious omissions in a second story about Mohamed Atta’s time in Germany which appeared in The Chicago Tribune, headlined ‘9/11 Haunts Hijacker’s Sponsors; German Couple Talks , of Living with Pilot Atta.’ The March 7, 2003 article describes the 1992 meeting in Cairo which led Mohamed Atta to move to Hamburg, between Atta and a German couple, which the paper does not name, who ran an international student exchange program, which the paper also leaves anonymous. During a visit to the Egyptian capital in fall 1991, said the Tribune, the German couple had stayed with friends who knew Atta’s father, a Cairo lawyer, and his father’s friends had then introduced the German couple to Atta. ‘Atta who had recently graduated with a degree in architectural engineering from the University of Cairo, told the couple he wanted to study architecture in Germany, but he had no particular idea where he should go,’ the paper reported . . .” In this first conversation, we suggested he continue his studies in Hamburg and offered him a place to live at our house,’ the paper quotes the German wife telling investigators from the BKA, the German equivalent of the FBI. Atta, she states, accepted their offer right away. Why did an (unnamed) German couple, running an (unnamed) international exchange program leap at the chance to engage a young man who was not even considered promising
enough to gain entrance to a local Cairo graduate school? The Tribune doesn’t say.” After studying German in Cairo, Atta arrived in the country on July 24, 1992, according to investigators’ records, and then lived rent-free for at least the next six months in the couple’s home in a quiet, middle-class neighborhood. It is more than curious that although Tribune correspondent Stevenson
Swanson cites the German couple for ‘having played such an important role in Atta’s move to Germany,’ he never gives their names, nor that of the organization they worked for. But since just two years later, Atta was on the payroll of the ‘Congress-Bundestag Program,’ it is reasonable to conclude that this same government-funded program was responsible for bringing him to Germany
in the first place, under the aegis of an unnamed German couple.
His elite sponsors are apparently powerful enough to keep the organization’s name out of the newspapers, or at any rate, out of the Chicago Tribune.”

The Final Analysis:
911 Was Made In America
History has many interpretations, and the information in this book has been just one of many – an interpretation pieced together from the bold admissions and revelations of insiders, whose stories have been ignored and suppressed by the major media organizations. It is an interpretation of history that suggests a few determined men strove to change the world in defense of western capitalism in ways which they felt needed to be hidden from the public. Whatever emotion or logic that was adequate to cause them to hide their actions from the public was not strong enough to prevent them from committing the acts. In changing the world, terrible crimes were committed for the good of the American public, without the American public having a say in what it thought was in its best interest. To cover-up these crimes, thousands of innocent people had to be murdered. Hundreds of thousands of people across the globe have been subjected to the terrors of wars funded by this operation. The ‘few good men’ responsible for these events make sure no one knows who is responsible, because in their hearts, they know that what they do is not acceptable to the American public.
The alleged statements by Bush and Reagan, at right, are testimony to that point.
Sarah McClendon: “What will the people do if they ever find out the truth about Iraq-gate and Iran contra?”
George H.W. Bush: “Sarah, if the American people ever find out what we have done, they will chase us down the streets and lynch us.”
Ronald Reagan: “If such a story gets out, we’ll all be hanging by our thumbs in front of the White House…”
Page 88 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 89 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
It might be fair to rationalize their crimes as collateral damage in a war to preserve the American standard of living, and that because they risk their lives to serve the American public, they are ‘entitled’ to reap the spoils of war. If thousands had to die to enrich the life and secure liberty for millions, is that not an acceptable sacrifice?
It might also be fair to suggest that these agents are nothing more than a criminal association of sociopaths and psychopaths, out to enrich themselves by means of violence, and who have murdered hundreds of thousands, destroyed the livelihoods of tens of thousands, and caused endless misery, pain and death for millions in foreign lands. As a brotherhood
always at war, they live under a motto of ‘results at any cost’ and they spin a web of deceit which allows the American public to tolerate their crimes.
It might be fair to view the politicians who use them as ‘realists,’ who accept the existence of both kinds of men, and use them to preserve and protect the American public, and like generals in war, be forced to make the ‘hard decisions’ on behalf of the citizenry.
It might also be fair to view the politicians as ‘opportunists’ who use the agents for their own personal gain. Most of these politicians made their fortunes by capitalizing on the death and misery of war which they forced others into unwillingly and through deception. They have insider trading knowledge of secret funds that in actuality belong to the American
public, and unlimited personal access to those funds.
Page 90 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 91 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Regardless of any personal interpretation, the process for ascertaining truth which has held consistent with the values of the American public
has been a trial by jury, where the prosecutors and defense abide by the law to conduct a fair and impartial hearings of the facts. This book is based on hearsay evidence, and as a result, proves nothing. Hopefully,
what it does is define hypotheses to be proven by subsequent archive research.
Americans had a chance in the 1980s to set the system straight, to enforce the law and prosecute those responsible for the Iran-Contra crimes. Americans could have sent a message that criminal behavior by its leaders is unacceptable. By not stopping this organization at that time, Congress and the American public allowed this criminal syndicate of American ‘heroes’ to continue to wreak even more havoc on the world in the name of the American public.
This assault on the Constitution, freedom, democracy, the Geneva Convention, and the rule of domestic and international law has continued
unabated for over 50 years. By refusing to re-open the widely discredited inquiry called the 911 Commission, and by refusing to address
the covert funding that feeds this syndicate without accountability
and with total impunity, the Congress seemingly becomes co-conspirator to past and future crimes.
Ronald Reagan was correct: America will never make concessions to terrorists; to do so would only invite more terrorism. Once we head down that path, there would be no end to it, no end to the suffering of innocent people, no end to the bloody ransom all civilized nations must pay.”
Reagan didn’t know he was talking about our own elected and un-elected leaders, politicians and administrators at the time.
Page 92 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 93 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Before his death, General Erle Cocke testified that he thought the whole operation had become too big for anyone to determine how to bring closure to it, and that those who wanted to see it ended just gave up. Given the thousands of people who have been murdered
to keep this secret, and given the way witnesses
that could implicate this group are treated, maybe those that gave up were encouraged to do so.
Two questions remain:
1. Does the American public want to bring an end to this covert war, and ,
2. Is there a way to bring this to closure?
Two American Presidents – Kennedy and Carter – tried to bring this organization under control, and both were beaten by the machine. Hopefully, the lessons of their shortcomings will provide success in a third attempt.
If there is no third attempt then the America we all believed in, the America we all hope for, is gone forever. With the many revelations surrounding the events of 911 the only “next step” is a Fascist Totalitarian Regime that uses Police State tactics and however sadly that may be for us, I think we can already see the writing on the wall. I’d like to thank JP Heidner, Barbara Honegger, David Ray Griffin and Captain Field McConnell, without whose contributions this book would not have been possible. Peggy and Sterling Seagraves’ book, “Gold Warriors” was a significant contribution as well.
It wouldn’t have been possible without the Bush/Cheney Crime Syndicate either but my thanks here is certainly not going to be forthcoming.
Now comes the next half of this book where we speculate on exactly how this event was done using a sophisticated energetic nano-composite and drone aircraft; Operation Northwoods 911.
Page 94 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 95 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
On September 11, 2001, the United States government held a series of military exercises and drills. Operation Northern Vigilance was a NORAD operation, which involved deploying fighter aircraft to the northwestern part of North America, specifically Alaska and Northern Canada. The exercise was one part simulation, one part real world. It was in response to a similar test acted out by Russia on September 11, where long-range bombers were dispatched to Russia’s high north. The exercises were immediately called off after the news of the terrorist attacks and all simulated information was purged from NORADs computer screens. However, the event was a distraction for the US government on 9/11.
Operation Northern Vigilance was not the only US exercise planned for September 11. A series of war games were also acted out, specifically Global Guardian. Global Guardian is an annual, command-level exercise held in the United States. It is an important task, and the purpose of the drill is to test and validate US nuclear command, control
and execution procedures. Vigilant Guardian is an exercise that was run in conjunction with Global Guardian. It involved a simulated bomber attack from the former Soviet Union. The drill was conducted in real time, and appeared legitimate in offices and on computers, but without any planes in the air. One of the drills included was a traditional simulated hijacking.
The National Reconnaissance Office drill that was being conducted on September 11, 2001, is the strangest. In the exercise, a simulated small aircraft crashed into one of the towers at the NRO headquarters. No plane was involved in the drill, but to simulate damage from the crash, some stairwells and exits were closed off. A bioterrorism
exercise was planned for September 12, 2001. It was named Operation Tripod and included a real life test of the US plan to distribute antibiotics to an entire city population during a bioterrorism attack. These US military drills set the stage for 911 and were an integral part of the event although they’re never mentioned by the media.
Operation Northwoods 911
Page 96 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 97 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
On September 11, at least five different “war games” were being
conducted by the military and intelligence agencies. These exercises included simulations of 9/11 type events, a plane into building scenario near Dulles Airport in Virginia, and deployment of fighters to northern Canada and Alaska (which reduced the number of fighters that were available to protect the US). It seems that these exercises were the means used to paralyze the air defenses, thereby ensuring the success of the “attacks.” The British Navy was conducting exercises in the Indian ocean near the Middle East. A biowar exercise was also about to start in New York City.
Who has the power to coordinate all of these exercises? Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah or Dick Cheney and the White House National Security Council?

It’s difficult to know where to start with 911 since my belief is that it was a vast conspiracy spanning 30 years.
Perhaps we’ll start there. A 30 year conspiracy.
Bob Kerrey, the man who headed the US government investigation into 911, in an unrehearsed 1 minute, 23 second video taken in a hotel or convention center lobby stated emphatically that, “911 was a 30 year conspiracy” and I’ve thus been forced to investigate this event from that perspective. While I try to avoid planes, no planes, cell phone calls, no cell phone calls, thermate, thermite and other normally debated issues it’s quite difficult to avoid those issues completely, so here we go.
First, here’s a link to the short video of Kerrey:
Dead Men Tell No Tales And They Can’t Talk
Seven Raytheon employees were killed on 911 on three hijacked planes. They were senior management employees involved with the technology used to fly commercial jumbo jets by remote control. What are the chances that on 911 seven employees of the same company involved in the same advanced technology which might be directly related to the events of 911 were killed on three separate planes on the same day?

The Controlled Impact Demonstration
“They Were Drones”
The significant question, asked by a news reporter during a 2001 George Bush interview
just after the events of 911 was, “in the case of a hijacking can we take over and command
commercial planes from the ground and fly them and land them safely, thereby preventing
a hijacking.” Our president answered in the negative stating that the technology to do so
was still several years off. That was a lie. It wasn’t the first lie nor was it the last.
In 1984 at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, NASA, Boeing and the Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) teamed up in a unique flight experiment called the “Controlled
Impact Demonstration,” (CID), to test the impact of a Boeing 720 aircraft using
standard fuel with an additive designed to suppress fire. The additive FM-9, a high
molecular-weight long chain polymer, when blended with Jet-A fuel had demonstrated
the capability to inhibit ignition and flame propagation of the released fuel in simulated
This isn’t about fuel tests of course. It’s about the ability to taxi, take off, fly and land commercial
jets without human pilots. It’s about the ability to taxi, take off, fly and crash commercial
jets. This is something we’ve been doing since the mid-1980s, perhaps before.
On the morning of December 1, 1984, a remotely controlled Boeing 720 transport took
off from Edwards Air Force Base (Edwards, California), made a left-hand departure and
climbed to an altitude of 2300 feet. It then began a descent-to-landing to a specially prepared
runway on the east side of Rogers Dry Lake. Final approach was along the roughly
3.8-degree glide slope. The landing gear was left retracted. Passing the decision height
of 150 feet above ground level (AGL), the aircraft was slightly to the right of the desired
path. Just above that decision point at which the pilot was to execute a “go-around,” there appeared to be enough
altitude to maneuver back to the centerline of the runway. Data acquisition systems had been activated, and the
aircraft was committed to impact. It contacted the ground, left wing low. The fire and smoke took over an hour to
This flight, called the Controlled Impact Demonstration (CID), was the culmination of more than a year of preparation
in a joint research project by NASA and the FAA to test the effectiveness of anti-misting kerosene (AMK)
in a so-called survivable impact. Added to typical Jet A fuel, the AMK was designed to suppress the fireball that
can result from an impact in which the airstream causes spilled fuel to vaporize into a mist. It also tested the remote
controlled flight of jumbo jets, publicly, although the public wasn’t informed by the media.
The plane was also instrumented for a variety of other impact-survivability experiments, including new seat
designs, flight data recorders, galley and stowage-bin attachments, cabin fire-proof materials, and burn-resistant
windows. Crash forces were measured, and a full complement of instrumented crash test dummies was carried on
the flight. Also tested were the technical aspects of flying commercial jets by remote con
The aircraft was remotely flown by NASA research pilot Fitzhugh (Fitz) Fulton from the NASA Dryden Remotely
Controlled Vehicle Facility at Edwards AFB. Previously, the Boeing 720 had been flown on 14 practice flights
with safety pilots onboard. During the 14 flights, there were 16 hours and 22 minutes of remotely piloted vehicle
control, including 10 remotely piloted takeoffs, 69 remotely piloted vehicle controlled approaches, and 13
remotely piloted vehicle landings on the abort runway with one remotely piloted crash.

the prepared impact site. The wing openers, designed to tear open the wings and spill the fuel, are
clearly seen on the ground just at the start of the bed of rocks.

The Controlled Impact Demonstration proves that not only could large Boeing commercial jets be flown but that they could be piloted from start to finish; taxi, take-off and landing. More importantly, this demonstration proves we had these capabilities as early as the mid-1980s. And what’s absolutely critical to this analysis is that we could, using remote controlled Boeings, crash these things anywhere we chose to, even into buildings.
Page 108 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 109 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
The QRS-11 allows a Boeing commercial jet to be controlled and flown from the ground and can be programmed from the ground to securely lock out the pilots ability to control and fly the plane. An individual on the ground or in an aircraft can take command of a Boeing commercial jet and lock out the pilots ability to fly making the commercial
jet effectively, a missile. Up to 8 commercial planes can be flown from the same computer terminal based on technology available in 2001.
In 2005 the State Department prepared civil charges against Boeing alleging 94 violations of the Arms Control Act because the company sold commercial airliners without obtaining an export license for a tiny gyrochip, the QSR-11, that has defense applications.
The company faced a potential fine of as much as $47 million, and the case could have been another enormous blow to the company’s fragile relations with the federal government. In pursuing Boeing over exports of 96 jets to China and other countries between 2000 and 2003, the government resurrected a thorny and highly politicized issue:
How should the U.S. protect dual-use technology that has both military and commercial applications without damaging its increasingly globalized trade?
To Boeing, the case is fallout from an overzealous application of export controls that threatened to derail overseas sales by treating commercial airplanes on a par with fighter jets. In September 2003, two 737 jets went to China only after President Bush personally signed off on the deliveries. Though the central national-security issue ultimately
was decided in Boeing’s favor, the State Department alleges that between 2000 and 2003 the company showed “a blatant disregard for the authority of the Department,” misrepresenting facts and making false statements
on shipping documents to get around the export restrictions. Boeing claims it ignored State Department edicts because its lawyers advised that the department was “without legal authority” to regulate the exports. That open defiance of the State Department was the crux of the case.
Though a Boeing document erroneously refers to the chip as “relatively unsophisticated” technology, the gyrochip also has been used to help stabilize and steer guided missiles. In the draft charging letter, the State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls alleges that between 2000 and 2003 Boeing broke export control laws in shipping to China and other countries what was then classified as militarily significant technology. Further, it claims the company did so deliberately and repeatedly even after it had been warned to stop.
Boeing “was aware that a [State] Department export license was required but chose to export without authorization
by using false statements on documents,” the charging letter alleges. Boeing managers declared on shipping certificates that no export license was required, even after the State Department had told the company otherwise, according to the letter. Boeing eventually acknowledged to the State Department that it had exported 96 aircraft and 27 spare gyrochip-equipped flight boxes without export licenses.
The QRS-11 chip, made by a unit of BEI Technologies in Concord, Calif., is just over 1-½ inches in diameter and weighs about 2 ounces. It sells for between $1,000 and $2,000. Described as “a gyro on a chip,” it is used to help control the flight of missiles and aircraft. On Boeing jets, three BEI microchips are embedded in an instrument box made by French avionics firm Thales. Acting together, the three chips provide a three-dimensional positional reading, telling the pilot through the flight display the precise yaw, roll and pitch of the airplane. This no-moving-parts electronic-sensor system acts as a back-up to a spinning gyroscope. Because of its use in guided missiles, the sensor is classified as a significant military item. Export-control regulations dictate that any larger system containing the sensor — even a commercial airplane — also must be considered a military item.

A Critical Piece Of The Puzzle
It is reported that the US company Raytheon landed a 727 six times in a military base in New Mexico with- out any pilots on board. This was done to test equipment making future hijackings more difficult, by allowing ground control to take over the flying of a hijacked plane. [Associated Press, 10/2/2001; Der Spiegel (Hamburg), 10/28/2001] Seven Raytheon employees
with possible ties to this remote control technology program appear to have been on the hijacked 9/11 flights. Sometime before April of 2001 a specially designed Global Hawk plane flew from the US to Australia without pilot or passengers. [Independent Television News, 4/24/2001] However, most media reports after 9/11 suggest such technology is currently impossible. For instance, the Observer quotes an expert who says that “the technology is pretty much there” but still untried. [Observer, 9/16/2001] An aviation-security
expert at Jane’s Defence Weekly says this type of technology belongs “in the realms of science fiction.” [Financial Times, 9/18/2001; Economist, 9/20/2001] Even President Bush appears to deny the technology currently exists. He gives a speech after 9/11 in which he mentions that the government would give grants to research “new technology, probably far in the future, allowing
air traffic controllers to land distressed planes by remote control.” [New York Times]. These are LIES. So let me ask you, “why would George Bush LIE” about the ability to remotely fly commercial jets from the ground and more importantly, why would he lie about a Gyro Chip designed specifically to allow air traffic controllers the ability to take command
of a hijacked airliner? I want the reader to understand that it’s my contention the planes were flown by remote from the start and they were commanded by remote from the ground locking out the pilots ability to fly.

NO IMAGES exist of any of the alleged hijackers actually boarding the planes. None. They are seen only at the terminal
and only 2 of them are captured on airport video. They are seen entering a security check point but not passing
through that check point and actually boarding the planes.
Speaking from his Cairo home, Mr Atta described hearing about the attacks after returning from a holiday on the Red
Sea on the evening of September 12. “My daughter called and said she was going to drop in. She stood at the door
and said ‘turn on the TV’,” he said. Amid images of the jets crashing into the Twin Towers, he saw his son’s passport
photograph. “As I saw the picture of my son,” he said, “I knew that he hadn’t done it. My son called me the day after
the attacks on September 12 at around midday. We spoke for two minutes about this and that.” When asked where his
son was, Atta’s father replied, “Ask the Mossad.” (Cont’d Page 114) Alive
And his address has changed. Not to Paradise in the Sky, or Virgin City, but Orlando, a long, long
way from heaven. Atta’s current address (image above), if Florida Division of Corporate Records
can be believed, is 4124 West Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL., the location of an International House
of Pancakes. It’s well known amongst intelligence agencies that the Mossad has infiltrated every
Arab political organization on earth, especially those in the Middle East. Was Mohamed Atta an
intelligence operative? The evidence seems to indicate that he was and this is discussed in great
detail further on in this book. Still, the idea that the “Mohamed Atta” who is alleged to have flown
Flight 11 into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 had been listed as a corporate officer in
a Florida company, without it having become public knowledge by now, seemed a tad unlikely,
perhaps even a little far-fetched, except that it’s not.

Many of the men named by the FBI as hijacker’s in the suicide attacks on Washington and New York have turned up alive and well. The identities of four or more of the 19 suspects accused of having carried out the attacks are now seriously in doubt.
Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately
crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September. His photograph was released, and has since appeared in newspapers and on television around the world. Except that he told journalists that he had nothing to do with the attacks
on New York and Washington, and had been in Morocco when they happened. He has contacted both the Saudi and American authorities, according to Saudi press reports. He acknowledges that he attended flight training school at Daytona Beach in the United States, and is indeed the same Waleed Al Shehri to whom the FBI has been referring. But, he says, he left the United States in September of 2001, became a pilot with Saudi Arabian airlines and is currently on a further training course in Morocco.
Abdulaziz Al Omari, another of the Flight 11 hijack suspects, has also been quoted in Arab news reports. Abdelaziz
Al Omari says he is an engineer with Saudi Telecoms, and that he lost his passport while studying in Denver. Another man with exactly the same name surfaced on the pages of the English-language Arab News. The second Abdulaziz Al Omari is a pilot for Saudi Arabian Airlines, the report says. Meanwhile, Asharq Al Awsat newspaper, a London-based Arabic daily, says it has interviewed Saeed Alghamdi. Khalid Al-Midhar may also be alive He was listed by the FBI as a hijacker in the United flight that crashed in Pennsylvania. And there are suggestions that another suspect, Khalid Al Midhar, may also be alive. FBI Director Robert Mueller has acknowledged
publicly that the identity of several of the suicide hijackers is in doubt.
Sunday, 23 September, 2001, 12:30 GMT 13:30 UK – “Hijack ‘suspects’ alive and well”
What do we know about Mohammad Atta? Well, we know quite a bit and we discuss Atta in depth further on in this book. One day after the 9/11 Commission Report says the terrorist ringleader finished making withdrawals in Virginia Beach, VA. totaling $18,000 from a SunTrust Bank account, on April 5th, 2001 Hassan Erroudani, an Orlando
man with close ties to the CIA and the Moroccan Embassy in Washington D.C., filed incorporation papers (image at right) with the state of Florida listing the President of KARAM LLC as “Mohamed Atta.” Incorporation
documents give the names of the KARAM LLC’s officers as Hassan Erroudani, Mohamed Atta, and Jamal Erroudani. Karam LLC was delisted in 2002 by the state of Florida for failing to file an annual report. When the firm filed for reinstatement on January 13, 2003, it once again listed “Mohamed Atta” as a corporate officer.
But Atta had now been demoted to Company Secretary and he moved to the Pancake House, ostensibly to learn the fine art of pancake preparation and table bussing.
Daniel Hopsicker, an internet blogger, spoke with KARAM LLC principal and founder Hassan Erroudani, who he reached by phone at his Orlando home. Hopsicker hadn’t counted on either Erroudani’s flat refusal to answer any questions about the “Mohamed Atta” listed as an officer in his company, or his tone of evident hostility. Hopsicker had been nothing if not polite, even to the point of suggesting a reason for why the whole thing might be just a big misunderstanding…
“Was it perhaps just a case of two different men with similar names?” he asked politely.
Ennoudani’s forceful response: “I don’t have anything to say about that.”
And then he hung up.
Why would someone do that… unless they possess what is commonly known as guilty knowledge? His behavior seemed both inexplicable and suspicious. Who exactly is Mohamed Atta? According to Wikipedia Mohamed Atta varied his name on documents, also using “Mehan Atta”, “Mohammad El Amir”, “Muhammad Atta”, “Mohamed El Sayed”, “Mohamed Elsayed”, “Muhammad al-Amir”, “Awag Al Sayyid Atta”, “Muhammad
al-Amir”, and “Awad Al Sayad”. In Germany, he registered his name as “Mohamed el-Amir Awad el-Sayed Atta”, and went by the name, “Mohamed el-Amir” at the Technical University of Hamburg. In his will written in 1996, Atta gives his name as “Mohamed the son of Mohamed Elamir awad Elsayed.” When he came to the United States, he used the name “Mohamed Atta.” Atta also claimed different nationalities, sometimes Egyptian and other times told people that he was from the United Arab Emirates.
It’s this writers belief that Mohamed Atta is still alive, living in Israel or an Arab country or maybe somewhere else under an assumed name with incalculable wealth derived from a deep cover covert operation which we uncoverd in the preceding pages that. Or, he was murdered by the perpetrators of the events of 911. To Mr. Atta, wherever you are and whoever you are, you were a key participant in the greatest crime ever perpetrated and you’ll have to live with that … or you were murdered with it…
And then he hung up

Not known for its public displays of new weaponry, Israel’s military sent a message to Iran recently by unveiling its latest “breakthrough” in unmanned aircraft, the Heron TP, nicknamed Eitan, which is Hebrew for “strong.” The Eitan (next page) is the world’s largest drone—with a wingspan of 86 feet that makes it nearly the size of a Boeing 737 jetliner. It can remain airborne for about 20 hours and fly as far as the Persian Gulf, which means it’s capable of entering Iranian airspace. Not only can the Eitan perform surveillance and carry communications-jamming equipment, but it can also launch air-to-ground missiles. Palestinians say Israel first used the drone during its last offensive in the Gaza Strip. Israeli military commanders have not publicly confirmed the Eitan’s offensive capabilities.
The IAI Heron (Machatz-1) is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle developed by the Malat (UAV) division of Israel Aerospace Industries (not pictured). It is capable of Medium
Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) operations of up to 52 hours’ duration at up to 35,000 feet. It has demonstrated 52 hours of continuous flight, but the effective
operational maximal flight duration is less, due to payload and flight profile. On September 11, 2005 it was announced that the Israel Defence Forces purchased US$50 million worth of Heron systems. The Machatz-1 has a winspan of 54 feet, 5 inches and a length of 27 feet, 10 inches.
The Northrop Grumman (formerly Ryan Aeronautical) RQ-4 Global Hawk (known as Tier II+ during development) is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) used by the United States Air Force and Navy as a surveillance aircraft. In role and operational design, the Global Hawk is similar to the Lockheed U-2, the venerable 1950s spy plane. It is a theater commander’s asset to provide a broad overview and systematic target surveillance. For this purpose, the Global Hawk is able to provide high resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) — that can penetrate cloud-cover and sandstorms — and Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR) imagery at long range with long loiter times over target areas. It can survey as much as 40,000 square miles (100,000 square kilometers) of terrain a day.
Missions for the Global Hawk cover the spectrum of intelligence collection capability to support forces in worldwide peace, crisis, and wartime operations. According to the Air Force, the capabilities of the aircraft allow more precise targeting of weapons and better protection of forces through superior surveillance capabilities. The Global Hawk costs about $35 million USD (actual per-aircraft costs; with development costs also included, the per-aircraft cost rises to $123.2 million USD each.The Drunken Lunatic Nuclear Armed State Unveils

These are not small aircraft and any one of them could easily be mistaken for a large commercial airliner to the
untrained civilian eye gazing over Washington, New York or Maryland. Where drones are not normally expected a
civilian could easily see one of these drones slightly redesigned to look like a commercial jet, the Global Hawk or the
Eitan (below) as an example, flying at maximum speed of 497.1 mph (432.0 kn, 800.0 km/h;) or cruising speed of 404
mph (351 kn; 650 km/h) and mistake it for a commercial airliner. With a range of 15,525 mi (13,491 nmi; 24,985 km)
at an endurance of 36 hours and a service ceiling of 65,000 ft (19,812 m) these drones could essentially be launched
from almost anywhere on the planet and hit the Pentagon, or anything else that was targeted.
Who knows what’s designed into the Eitan?
Page 12 0 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 121 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
The Heron TP family of drones, of which Eitan is the latest, are designed as surveillance planes. They have a lot of stamina, and Eitan can stay in the air for 24 hours. It has a payload of 1000kg, according to some sources, while others say it can take 1000kg of sensors. The meanings are relevant, because there’s a big difference
between a combat load of that size and cameras.
The furor about its range is based on the ongoing “debate” about whether Israeli planes can reach Iran. The Iranians say they can’t, the Israelis say they can. This fascinatingly unproductive debate has somehow managed
to overlook the fact that any combat plane can refuel in the air. Hence the great interest in the long range drone.
In point of fact, systems like Eltan are much more effective as spotters than they can be as combat aircraft. They can’t evade interceptors, with a low airspeed of 207kmh (130 mph). This one, however, has advanced thermal and other sensors which could operate as a source of targeting data for an attack.
In practice, most drones operate as advanced reconnaissance, and the portable drones, little things with good real time cameras, are getting some respect and affection from the grunts in Afghanistan because of their reliability
and saving a lot of extra sore feet on patrols. Al Jazeera has an article which is a bit more focused than other regional news on the subject. The topic of an attack on Iran more or less drowns out other information. The actual information on public offer appears to come from a brief broadcast on intel.livetv, and it’s not very long, or very specific. This YouTube video, with Eitan at the start, contains most of the “news” which is getting sprayed around the world with such uninformative zeal.
Wikipedia has more specifications which are better definitions of Eitan’s actual
functions. More importantly, the Wikipedia article’s also related to the commercial prospects of this potentially very useful plane, which appears to be one of the primary drivers of its sudden rise to fame.
Israel Aerospace Industries is exporting versions of these planes. The long range and high sensor payloads create a different type of operational paradigm
for many services, allowing for prolonged surveillance, and apparently
much more information in terms of types of data it can acquire. Eitan has a distant cousin in the form of the American Global Hawk, a long range, high yield drone which can be adapted to a range of functions including theoretical combat capabilities, but it’s not configured or powered like a Global Hawk.
This is a medium range plane, and its most likely combat role would be supporting
ground forces and assisting some air operations, which it appears to be equipped to do very effectively. It’s not designed as a natural participant in combat. It has no obvious hard points, and a single prop driven plane would require some modifications to lug any weapon with major combat capability long ranges for 24 hours. In missions outside Israel it would need to operate under the wing of the air superiority of the Israeli Air Force.
The YouTube video is mainly newsworthy for its comprehensive documentation
of the fact that nobody in the Middle East seems to be able to get out of the unproductive cliché conflict mode of the last nearly 70 years. The comments on the thread are more revealing than the video. Eitan is seen as a direct threat, whether it is one or not. It’s supposed to be able to “hit” Iran.
Very likely the Eitan will be able to hit Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen,
Somalia and maybe even the USA if we threaten to stop our yearly $3 billion to $5 billion dollar

An eyewitness from the Pentagon has come forward with an astonishing account that debunks the official 9/11 story and corroborates the hypothesis that an unmanned and weaponized Global Hawk drone was involved in the attack.
Nearly 5 years after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, Samuel L. Danner has come forward with testimony which, if accurate, completely debunks the official version that a hijacked Boeing 757 flew into the 5-sided military
fortress housing the U.S. Department of Defense.
Danner, a civilian pilot and electrical engineer from Hagerstown, Maryland, says he was trying to get out of Washington
on the morning of 9/11 after hearing of the attacks on the World Trade Center. Having made a wrong turn, Danner wound up heading south on Washington Blvd. (Virginia Highway 27), the highway that passes alongside the western side of the Pentagon. It was from the shoulder of Highway 27, across from the Pentagon, that Danner says he observed the approaching aircraft involved in the attack.
Danner’s eyewitness account corroborates the theory that an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), known as Global Hawk, was flown by remote control into the newly renovated section of the Pentagon, the fortress of the Department
of War that was built on a low lying area formerly known as Hell’s Bottom. Although Danner’s testimony is unique in its detail and description of the aircraft, it is supported by an abundance of photographic evidence and numerous statements made by other eyewitnesses.
Now a multi-billion dollar defense project involving contractors like L3 Communications Titan Group, Northrop Grumman Systems Corp., and Raytheon, the Global Hawk is a 44-foot long jet-powered surveillance UAV with a 116 foot wing span that can fly 15,000+ miles at an altitude of 65,000 feet at over 400 miles per hour. At the time of the attack, however, the U.S. Air Force had only 6 Global Hawks in service that we know of. Two of the original
Global Hawks reportedly crashed, one at China Lake, California, another “somewhere overseas,” according to a spokesman at Edwards Air Force Base where the aircraft is tested. That doesn’t mean there weren’t more, it means we don’t know if there were.
“Two Global Hawk crashes occurred in the Central Command Area of Operation, which is Southwest Asia,” a spokesman for the U.S.A.F. later told AFP. “Both these crashes occurred during support for Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, which started after September 11th,” he added.
The evidence supporting the theory that a Global Hawk was flown into the Pentagon by remote control has been investigated by American Free Press. While Danner’s testimony corroborates this hypothesis, which is supported by evidence, there is not a single piece of evidence, physical or photographic in the public domain to support the government version that a Boeing 757 crashed into the Pentagon.
Danner, who was diagnosed with a form of lymphoma in September 2004, contacted 9/11 researcher Eric Hufschmid,
author of Painful Questions, on June 29. Danner’s initial wide-ranging two-hour conversation with Hufschmid
is available online at http://www.erichufschmid.net.An Eyewitness To The crimeI see Drones
Page 124 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 125 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Asked why he finally decided to come forth with his ground-breaking testimony, Danner told AFP, “It’s been bugging
me.” Danner said his son had shown him the 9/11 video called Loose Change by Dylan Avery on the Internet. “It made so much sense to me,” Danner said. “It got me upset, in a good sense, in a patriotic sense. I asked myself
why I didn’t come out with this earlier?” Danner told AFP that being a 53-year old lymphoma patient going through chemotherapy had motivated him to come forward with his testimony. Since coming forward with his account, Danner has been the guest on several of Michael C. Piper’s radio programs on Republic Broadcasting Network, which are archived athttp://mp3.rbnlive.com/Piper06.html
The government version that a Boeing 757 hijacked by Arabs hit the Pentagon is “a big bogus lie,” Danner says. About the five video frames released by the government and the official explanation,
Danner says: “That’s a lie if I ever saw one. The American people need to know.”
“It was not a Boeing 757 that hit the Pentagon,” Danner told AFP, “No way.” In fact, Danner’s description of the aircraft that struck the Pentagon fits precisely with that of a Global Hawk, a relatively
unknown UAV which was still being tested in 2001.
Danner, a certified pilot who no longer flies due to his illness, has had a lifelong interest in aircraft, both military and civilian, and has attended military air shows at Andrews AFB outside Washington.
“I like airplanes,” Danner says, and his ability to identify aircraft quickly and accurately is central to the credibility of his testimony. He was, however, not familiar with the Global Hawk at the time. As he drove south on the west side of the Pentagon shortly after 9:30 a.m. on 9/11, Danner noticed a strange object in the air. He noticed that other drivers were also distracted by the object, which he described as an unidentified flying object. Danner
pulled over on the right hand shoulder, stopped his car, and got out to observe the approaching aircraft. From this position, with the Pentagon on his left, he recalled his observations of the aircraft he says struck the Pentagon.
Danner described the object as a white aircraft, without any cockpit
or fuselage windows, which came at him very fast. It was “bigger
than a Gulfstream 300,” he said, and had only one engine located on the rear section between a V tail, which reminded him of a Beechcraft Bonanza. The aircraft had a “funny looking front” with the shape of “a humpback whale,” he said. He saw the aircraft finish a tight descending turn to the right as it approached the Pentagon. As it leveled off just off the ground he said he heard “a high pitched whine” as the single engine aircraft “spooled up.”
“It was real low,” he said as it turned and dove toward the Pentagon over the highway cloverleaf southwest of the Pentagon. Danner said the aircraft had approached from the north and had made a 270 degree turn done while descending.
“It looked like it was under perfect control,” Danner said, adding that he did not see any windows on the cockpit or the fuselage. Danner estimated that the aircraft was traveling about 200 mph as it made the tight turn and then accelerated as it leveled out and aimed itself at the Pentagon. The engine configuration reminded Danner of an older Boeing 727, which has a turbine jet engine located on the back of the plane above the fuselage. “That was the only engine I saw,” Danner said, “there was none affixed to any fore or aft wings.
“It had a V tail,” Danner told AFP, “it had a Bonanza V tail.”
Danner, who estimates that he was less than 500 feet from the path of this aircraft, noted that it was very quiet: “There wasn’t the roar noise that you get with a jet at full throttle. This thing knew how to fly quietly â€“ I mean I could hear the whine and I knew it was jet powered.” Danner’s description of the aircraft’s small size is confirmed by early eyewitness reports. One witness, Steve Riskus, has previously confirmed to AFP that the plane was very quiet. “There was a four-engine jet above us,” Danner said, which looked to him like a Boeing 707 or a DC-8 at about 15,000 feet. He said this plane may have been controlling the windowless drone by “flying it by camera.” Danner noticed that people at the Pentagon were aware of this plane overhead. Danner said he had contacted some of the people he met on the lawn of the Pentagon to encourage them to come forward with their testimony.
Danner says the aircraft flew with remarkable precision as it leveled
off and went right into the southwestern facade of the Pentagon.
The impact created a “brilliant white flash” that he described as “a phosphorous kind of flash.” This suggests the UAV carried high energy explosives or a depleted uranium (DU) missile. If a DU missile was used, this could explain the source of Danner’s lymphoma. If he was contaminated by DU at the Pentagon crash site, the other people in the proximity would also have been affected.
Wearing his emergency medical technician (EMT) shirt that he carried in his car, Danner went directly to the crash site expecting
to find wreckage, debris, wounded and dead. “I didn’t find anything,” Danner says. “I was there to rescue, but there were no bodies and no substantial pieces of wreckage.” Rather than finding
wreckage of a Boeing 757, passengers and luggage, Danner found “a bunch of sheet metal” and a bent and damaged 3-foot engine that was missing its turbine blades. Danner said he stood two feet away from the 3-foot engine. The engine was found about 25 feet from the exterior wall and appears to have bounced off the two-foot thick limestone-clad wall.
At the scene of the crash Danner recalls smelling gun powder or cordite. The white flash he saw suggests that the aircraft was weaponized with a missile. A DU missile launched as the aircraft approached the building would explain
the brilliant white flash, the hole pierced through three rings of the Pentagon, and the huge explosion. Later, Danner participated in the retrieval of small pieces of the aircraft from the lawn with Pentagon personnel. He said he found small pieces of shredded aluminum and bits of carbon fiber and polymer resins. The Global Hawk has an aluminum fuselage and carbon fiber wings. “We were told to pick up every piece of debris,” Danner said, which they put into trash bags. Danner said the scene felt more like a crime scene than a crash scene and he was mystified by the way the evidence was being removed rather than flagged and documented. From the image on this page, taken just after the bombing and before the building facade had fallen, one can easily see that a Boeing commercial jet did not strike the Pentagon. Whether it was, a missile dropped by a drone which then flew over the building, a missile launched from an off-shore vessel, a drone packed with explosives, bombs planted in the building or something else entirely, we do know it was not a Boeing commercial passenger jet.

The Bunker Buster
One of the most highly anticipated weapons to be used in the war on terror, Massive Ordnance Penetrator or MOP is witnessing an urgent push by the Pentagon to be inducted into the U.S armed forces. The colossal super bunker buster, MOP is designed to penetrate and obliterate underground hardened enemy bunkers and installations and can punch through 10,000 pounds of reinforced concrete.
The U.S Department of Defense has allocated an urgent $52 million budget for the MOP and expects it to be operational under various commands by early summer next year. The MOP is considered to be the largest and most powerful non-nuclear weapon in the U.S arsenal and is said to be delivered to its targets by only B-52 bombers and B-2 Stealth Bombers, due to its massive size. The bomb weighs about 30,000 pounds and carries a warhead equivalent to 5,300 pounds of explosives. It is widely speculated that, the MOP has been designed to destroy the underground nuclear facilities currently under operation in Iran and North Korea, though there has been no official word on the intended targets.
According to Kenneth Katzman (Congressional Research Service), “I don’t really see it as a near-term indication
of anything being planned. I think certainly down the road it has a certain deterrent factor. It adds to the calculus, let’s say, of Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong Il.”
The Massive Ordnance Penetrator can penetrate upto 200 feet underground and is guided by an extremely sophisticated
GPS system, thereby enhancing the weapons
accuracy. The MOP is said to be ten times more powerful and destructive than the bunker busters it is designated to replace.

The Clock Lady
Arab Terrorists Don’t Plant Bombs Inside The Pentagon
Barbara Honegger, the Clock Lady, served as Special Assistant to the Assistant to the President and White House Policy Analyst (1981-83); was the pioneering Irangate author and whistleblower on the October Surprise (Tudor, 1989) and in the Iran-Contra expose documentary film “Cover-Up,” and was called as a researcher-witness at both the October 23, 2004 and August 27, 2005 Los Angeles Citizens 9/11 Grand Jury hearings held at Patriotic Hall in Los Angeles, California.
Barbara Honegger makes the best case yet for US government complicity in the events of 911. In fact, Honegger sets the stage for a scenario that indicates with clarity that the US government was directly and solely responsible for the events of 911.
World 9/11 truth authority Prof. David Ray Griffin has included the core finding of Honeggers white paper – evidence for inside-the-building bombs at the Pentagon on 9/11, paralleling the already-well-known inside-the-building explosives at the WTC that morning – in his latest and most definitive expose book on September 11th, “The New Pearl Harbor Revisited” (Chapter 2, ‘Reports of Bombs’). In a previous book, Griffin said that any serious reinvestigation of 9/11 should include the information and analysis contained in Honeggers White Paper. Honegger’s two-hour under-oath videotaped interview and testimony of key Pentagon eyewitness April Gallop, cited in the next chapter, formed the basis for a critical new 9/11 lawsuit filed in Manhattan on Dec. 15, 2008.
The Pentagon was first attacked shortly after 9:30 a.m. – well before 9:37:46, when the Official Lie says a plane hit the building from the outside. The Pentagon was first attacked much earlier than the 9/11 Commission and official
cover story claim. The Pentagon and mainstream media first reported 9:43 as the time of alleged Flight 77 impact (some reports, reportedly also quoting official sources, were as late as 9:48 and 9:47). Over time, the time given by officials for the claimed outside impact on the building moved earlier and earlier, finally down to 9:37, but has never come close to the actual time of the first violent event at the Pentagon — shortly after 9:30 a.m.
Clearly, if the official story that Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at almost 9:38 were true, Flight 77 could not have been the source of massive damage to the west side of the building which occurred between five and eight minutes earlier.
There are converging lines of evidence of a 9:30 -to- 9:32 a.m. violent event at the Pentagon on September 11, well before the Official Story says anything hit the building:
Multiple standard-issue, battery- and/or electric-operated wall clocks on the walls of the area of the Pentagon attacked on 9/11 — including one in the heliport just outside the west wedge — were stopped between 9:30 and 9:32-1/2 by a violent event, almost certainly a bomb or bombs inside the building and/or in a truck or construction
trailer parked right outside the west face. The first Associated Press report, in fact, stated that the Pentagon had been damaged by a “booby trapped truck.” The Navy posted the stopped heliport clock on an official website and another of the stopped clocks was in the 9/11 display at the Smithsonian Institution. These are just some of the west-section Pentagon clocks – as well as an inside-the-building victim’s wrist watch – that were stopped between 9:30 and 9:32-1/2 on September 11.

We Have Bombs In The House!
The witness has requested that his name not be used just yet,
but is willing to testify to a grand jury
or independent official investigation
April Gallop, an Army employee with a Top Secret clearance, was at her desk in the Army administrative offices in the west section of the Pentagon on 9/11, the area of the building most heavily destroyed and with the most casualties, when what she said sounded and felt “like a bomb” went off. “Being in the Army with the training I had, I know what a bomb sounds and acts like, especially the aftermath, and it sounded and acted like a bomb,”
In a videotaped interview Gallop stated: “There was no plane or plane parts inside the building, and no smell of jet fuel.” In those two hours of videotaped testimony, Gallop states that the explosion went off at the precise instant she hit the ‘power on’ button on her computer in the Army administrative area, to which she had just returned that morning after months of pregnancy and childbirth leave, and that the explosion stopped her wrist watch just after 9:30 a.m. She has kept the stopped wrist watch in a safe deposit box as evidence of the exact moment of the initial explosion.
The FAA’s Timeline document “Executive Summary—Chronology of a Multiple Hijacking Crisis –– September 11, 2001” includes: “0932: ATC (Air Traffic Control) AEA reports aircraft crashes into west side of Pentagon.” The time is the critical fact here, not the claimed cause, which was taken from the official story and not the result of any ATC eyewitnesses.
Denmark’s soon-to-be Foreign Minister Per Stig Moller was in a building in Washington, D.C. on 9/11 from which he looked out, heard an explosion and saw the smoke first rise from the Pentagon. He immediately looked at his wrist watch, which read 9:32 am. He gave radio interviews in Denmark the next morning in which he stated that the Pentagon had been attacked at 9:32. On August 27, 2002, then White House Counsel and now Attorney General Alberto Gonzales gave an audiotaped Secretary of the Navy lecture at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif., a DoD educational institution, in which he clearly and explicitly states that “The Pentagon was attacked at 9:32”. A tape of this segment of his talk was played at the 9/11 Emergency Truth Convergence at American University in Washington, D.C. in July 2005, and is on the public record.
The Pentagon was attacked by bomb(s) between 9:30 and 9:32 a.m., possibly followed by an impact from an airborne
object significantly smaller than Flight 77, a Boeing 757. We have already seen that Army employee April Gallop, whose watch was stopped by the violent event at the Pentagon shortly after 9:30, says that her military training and experience led her to immediately determine the source of the initial explosion was a bomb.
Barbara Honegger claims to have interviewed an Army auditor from Ft. Monmouth, New Jersey, who was on temporary duty assignment at the Pentagon before, on and after 9/11. He was in the Army financial management spaces only minutes before the Pentagon explosion on the morning of 9/11. He had just returned to his temporary office on the ground floor of the adjacent south side of the Pentagon by the cafeteria when he heard an explosion and felt the building shake. Immediately afterwards, he said, hundreds of panicked Pentagon personnel ran by him down the corridor just outside his office and out the South Entrance, yelling “Bombs!” and “A bomb went off!”
Page 142 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 143 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
This Army financial management/audit area is part of, or contiguous to, the Army personnel offices, which was one of two main west section offices heavily destroyed in the Pentagon attack, the other being the Naval Command Center. The day before 9/11, September 10, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld held a press conference at which he acknowledged that the Pentagon was “missing”—could not account for and needed to “find” — $2.3 Trillion dollars.
Were the auditors who could “follow the money,” and the computers whose data could help them do it, intentionally
targeted? It is worth noting that the Pentagon’s top financial officer at the time, Dov Zakheim, who also acknowledged the “missing” trillions, had a company that specializes in aircraft remote-control technology. As remnants
found in the Pentagon wreckage have been identified
as the front-hub assembly of the front compressor of a JT8D turbojet engine used in the A-3 Sky Warrior jet fighter and in Air Force A-3 Sky Warriors — normally piloted planes — were secretly retrofitted to be remote-controlled drones and fitted with missiles in a highly compartmented
operation at an airport near Ft. Collins-Loveland
Municipal Airport in Colorado in the months before 9/11, the question further arises as to whether Pentagon auditors and their computerized data were intentionally targeted on 9/11.
The Ft. Monmouth Army auditor and his two colleagues were also eyewitnesses to multiple teams of bomb- sniffing
dogs and their K-9 handlers in camouflage uniform at the Pentagon metro station just outside the Pentagon at approximately 7:30 am on 9/11. He said that K-9 bomb squads had not been at the Pentagon metro stop before 9/11, or since, but only that day. Since K-9 dog squads don’t usually search for airliners, but bombs, a bomb attack
was clearly anticipated. Ms. Gallop said she also saw the bomb sniffing K-9 teams that morning, from the top of the Pentagon metro stop looking down.
The Day The Pentagon Was Attacked!

Survivor eyewitnesses from inside the west section of the Pentagon reported that the blast caused its windows first to expand outwards, and then inwards. Multiple witnesses said they smelled cordite after the initial explosion at the Pentagon, an explosive which has a distinct and very different smell from that of burning jet fuel. And as we have already noted, Ms. Gallop said there was no smell of jet fuel inside the most damaged section of the building shortly after the first violent event that stopped her watch there shortly after 9:30am.
Even Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld told Sam Donaldson in an ABC News interview shortly after 9/11 that he first thought a bomb had gone off in the building. Donaldson: “What did you think it was?” Rumsfeld: “A bomb? I had no idea…”
It is important to note that bomb explosion(s) at 9:32am on the ground floor of the west section of the Pentagon are not inconsistent with there having also been a later, or even near-simultaneous, impact by some airborne object — a piloted plane, unmanned drone, or missile — into the same or nearby section of the building, which may have been the cause of the collapse of the west wall section approximately 20 minutes after the initial violent event. Indeed, if a heat-seeking missile hit the building after the bomb(s) went off, the heat from the explosion(s) would become the target for the missile. Recall that the A-3 Sky Warrior planes were retrofitted shortly before 9/11, not only enabling them to be remotely controlled but also fitted with missiles. The round-shaped exit hole in the inner
wall of the “C” Ring is evidence that a missile or a piloted or pilot-less remote-controlled plane significantly smaller than Flight 77 also struck the building subsequent to bombs going off and penetrated the inside of the third ring, as bomb detonations would not have resulted in such a near-symmetrical round-shaped opening unless they were carefully shaped charges.
Outwards and Inwards?
I Had No Idea!

“According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion
in transactions,” is what Rumsfeld said on national television on September 10th, 2001. And from PBS we learn that this figure came from a report of the Pentagon’s inspector general. “Its own auditors admit the military cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends,” reports CBS News Correspondent Vince Gonzales. Such a disclosure
normally might have sparked a huge scandal. However, the commencement of the attack on New York City and Washington on the following morning would assure that the story remained buried …
Was part of the reason for the Pentagon attacked to hide the loss, misplacement or more likely the purposeful
misdirection of $2.3 trillion in US taxpayer dollars? Were the financial investigators in the Office Of Naval Intelligence getting close to discovering the truth?
Was there far more then $2.3 trillion dollars involved?
I believe there was.

And Bombs Explode

Honegger interviewed the then Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations on 9/11, Robert Andrews
— the top civilian official in charge of special operations under Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld — a former Green Beret whose office was on the second floor of the south section of the Pentagon, adjacent to the west section.
While drawing the path that he took that morning on a sketch of the Pentagon, he revealed the following:
Immediately after the second World Trade Center attack of 9:03 am, Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld left his office on the Potomac side of the Pentagon and went (merely) across the hall on the same floor to his Executive Support
Center (ESC), which is set up for teleconferencing. There, he joined the teleconference of top government officials run by Richard Clarke out of the White House Situation Room media room. Clarke, in his book Against All Enemies, confirms that Rumsfeld was among the first officials on this teleconference shortly after the second WTC tower was hit. Clarke’s account and Andrews’ confirmation of it are completely at odds with the official cover story and the 9/11 Commission, which claim that no one could locate Secretary Rumsfeld until approximately
10:30am when he walked into the National Military Command Center (NMCC).
The fact that Rumsfeld, the military’s top civilian official, was on Clarke’s teleconference with the top official of the FAA, Director Jane Garvey, also puts the complete lie to the official cover story that Air Force interceptors weren’t scrambled in time because the military and FAA “couldn’t talk each other” on 9/11. The top-most officials of the Pentagon
and FAA were talking to one another constantly on Clarke’s teleconference from as early as 9:15. This taped Clarke teleconference is the “Butterfield tape” of 9/11. [During the 1970s Watergate scandal, secretly-made tapes of President Nixon’s Oval Office conversations revealed by Alexander Butterfield were the “smoking guns” which forced Nixon to resign or face certain impeachment and trial in the Senate.]
Immediately after the second WTC tower was struck at 9:03 am, Andrews and his aide left his office and ran as fast as they could down to the Secretary of Defense’s West section Counterterrorism Center (CTC), arriving at approximately
9:10. While he and his aide were in the CTC, a violent event caused the ceiling tiles to fall off the ceiling and smoke to pour into the room. Andrews immediately looked at his watch, which read approximately 9:35am but which was set fast to ensure timely arrival at meetings, so the actual time was closer to 9:32. He and his aide then immediately evacuated the CTC with the goal of joining Rumsfeld in his Executive Support Center (ESC) across the hall from Rumsfeld’s main office. He said that Rumsfeld
was already on the White House teleconference when they arrived. En route to Rumsfeld’s ESC, Andrews said when he and his aide entered the corridor on the inside ring of the west section, “we had to walk over dead bodies” to get to the inner courtyard. (Note: This is two rings further in towards the center from the inner most hole made by whatever allegedly impacted the Pentagon that morning.)
Once in the inner courtyard, Andrews and his aide ran as fast as they could to Rumsfeld’s Executive Support Center, where he joined Rumsfeld as his special operations/counterterrorism adviser during Clarke’s White House teleconference. Andrews also said that Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld spoke with President Bush while in the Pentagon Executive Support Center. Whether this was via the teleconference or by phone or other means was not stated. The fact that Rumsfeld personally communicated with Bush on 9/11 while Rumsfeld was in his Pentagon ESC was published on an official DoD web site.
I have written communications from a former U.S. military helicopter pilot and current executive director of one of the US’s premier aviation societies who personally knows and communicates regularly with the highest-ranking
first responders at the WTC on 9/11, that the New York City Fire Department — presumably its Fire Chief, who reported to then mayor Rudolph Giuliani — ordered the doors to the roofs of the WTC towers locked, which blocked the only avenue of escape for victims above the plane impact floors, ensuring their horrific deaths; that at least one of the two New York Police Department helicopters seen hovering near the burning towers on television footage that morning, and probably both, was equipped with a winch and jump seat designed for the rescue of victims
and in fact was the same helicopter and crew that had rescued victims from the burning WTC1 in 1993, and that these Police Department helicopters were ordered by the Fire Department not to try to rescue victims from the towers,
even though there were heliports on the roofs and the winch and jump seat could have been dropped outside the windows on the sides of the towers where victims were waiting to be rescued; and that the Fire Department also explicitly refused the help of large numbers of military helicopters, whose pilots spontaneously converged on the New York area only to be ordered to wait at a nearby base.
WTC janitor William “Willy” Rodriguez, the last non-emergency response person to leave the WTC alive on 9/11, has testified that he was in the first basement level of the WTC when an immense explosion went off below him in the yet-deeper subbasement level(s) of the building a few seconds before the plane hit the tower high above. As Robert Andrews revealed that the west side basement level of the Pentagon was damaged at approximately 9:32 am and as we know that the cause of the 9:32 Pentagon attack
was not an impact event but explosives, there are thus eye- and ear witness reports of bombs going off in both the Pentagon and the WTC underground level(s) before both buildings were hit by anything from the outside.
As no “outside” terrorist, al Qaeda or otherwise, could have had access to either the Pentagon or the sustained advance access needed to pre-place explosives inside the WTC, only domestic insiders could have pre-placed the explosives in both the Pentagon and the WTC. Further, because the WTC1 deep-basement explosions(s) experienced
by Willy Rodriguez happened before the tower
The National Military Command Center (NMCC) is located in the Joint Staff area of the Pentagon. The NMCC is responsible for generating Emergency Action Messages (EAMs) to launch control centers, nuclear submarines, recon aircraft and battlefield commanders worldwide.
Page 15 0 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 151 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
was hit by a plane; as any incoming
plane not controlled by the same party that triggered the sub-basement detonation(s) could have veered off from the building at the last second, ruining the plane-impact-as-cover-story for the later building collapse; and as the sub-basement explosions were necessary for the actual later collapse of the buildings by controlled
demolition, the same domestic U.S. insiders had to have controlled both the sub-basement detonations and the incoming plane(s). Thus, even if al Qaeda hijackers were on the incoming planes, they were not in final control of the impact of the planes into the buildings, which had to have been 100 percent guaranteed by domestic U.S. insider controllers to ensure that, once the WTC1 sub-basement explosions went off, the plane did not veer off and miss the building and ruin the plane-impact-and-fires cover story for the building collapse.
This fact is critical, as it may take jurisdiction for the mass murders at the WTC out of the hands from the Bush Administration’s FBI, which oversees crimes committed in the air, as a cogent legal argument can be made that the real crime of controlling the plane into the towers was committed on the ground, in a terrestrial bldg. or vehicle, where its true controllers almost certainly resided. If so, this would place the crime of the WTC mass murders squarely with the State of New York, as murder is a State crime and multiple/mass murders are the sum of individual State crimes. Because the controllers of the timing of the basement level explosives had to have also been the controllers of the final approach of the planes, and the former was arguably, and provably with legal discovery and subpoena power, on the ground and not in the air, a Manhattan grand jury can be given the case and pull jurisdiction for the Bush-Cheney Reichstag Fire out of their federal hands.
Because the real modus operandi at the Pentagon and WTC are so similar, it is logical to deduce that the same domestic-US terrorists were responsible
for pre-placing and detonating the bombs—both inside the WTC and inside the Pentagon. That is, a single group of US-domestic conspirators —not al Qaeda or any other outside terrorists
— must have planned both the WTC and Pentagon attacks and controlled
both the approaching planes and the inside-the-builing explosions in real time on 9/11.
In addition to the already legion evidence
that Flight 77 did not hit the Pentagon – i.e. the small hole in the west side of the Pentagon being not nearly large enough for the plane’s fuselage, let alone wing width; no damage to the lawn where Flight 77 allegedly struck and skidded before hitting the building; wrecked plane parts at the site identified as being
from an A-3 Sky Warrior, a far smaller plane than that of Flight 77, a Boeing 757; Pentagon requests to TV media on the morning of 9/11 not to take up-close images, etc. — there is also official evidence that Flight 77 did not hit the building:
In the Air Force’s own account of the events of 9/11, Air War Over America,
the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) general
who finally ordered interceptor jets scrambled on 9/11, although too late, Gen. Larry Arnold, revealed that he ordered one of his jets to fly down low over the Pentagon shortly after the attack there that morning, and that this pilot reported back that there was no evidence that a plane had hit the building. This fighter jet — not Flight 77 — is almost certainly the plane seen on the Dulles airport Air Traffic Controller’s screen making a steep, high-speed 270 to 330-degree descent before disappearing from the radar. [When a plane flies low enough to go undetected, usually at or below 500 feet, it is said to be flying “under the radar.” Note: The Pilotsfor911truth website and their “Pandora’s Black Box” video have determined from official
data released by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) that the true altitude/height of the plane represented by the blip was 476 feet – way to high to have hit the Pentagon at all, let alone the ground floor, but, significantly, in just the height range to been seen by controllers to have just gone off radar and be said to have crashed. Military pilots — like the one sent by Gen. Arnold on 9/11 to report on the Pentagon’s damage — are trained to fly at approx. 500 feet above ground in order to evade radar detection. In fact, when the Air Traffic Controller responsible for the plane and her colleagues watched the extremely difficult 330-degree maneuver (originally claimed to be a 270-degree maneuver, since updated) on her screen, they were certain that the plane whose blip they were watching perform this extremely difficult feat was a US military aircraft, and said so at the time. It almost certainly was.
Thus, the likely reason the Pentagon has refused to lower the current official time for “Flight 77” impact, 9:37, to 9:32 am—the actual time of the first explosions there—is that they decided to pretend the blip represented by Arnold’s surveillance jet approaching just before 9:37 was “Flight 77.” As the official cover story claims that the alleged 9:37 impact was the only Pentagon attack that morning, yet by the time Arnold’s surveillance jet arrived
The NMCC staff provides continuous operation monitoring, reporting, training,
maintenance management, and coordination for all communications-electronics
activities and systems supporting the NMCC to ensure minimum essential
National Military Command System (NMCS) connectivity for the Single Integrated Operational Plan execution, worldwide situation monitoring, and crisis management. It also provides Joint Staff with ADP operations, support and information relating to operational capabilities of the United States in the area of nuclear command and control, primarily missile warning systems of the Integrated Tactical Warning and Attack Assessment (ITW/AA) network.
William Rodriguez is a hero of 9/11 and one of the last to escape the north tower before its collapse. He was interviewed by the 9/11 Commission only to have his testimony left out. He contends that massive explosions were going off in the basement of the tower prior to the impact and ‘collapse’.
Page 152 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 153 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
on the scene the violent event had already happened, the Pentagon cannot acknowledge
the earlier 9:32 time without revealing
an attack on the building prior to the alleged impact.
It is significant that the The 9/11 Commission
Report ignores the testimony of Secretary
of Transportation Norman Mineta to its own commission and did this only for the testimony of Secretary Mineta. The clear reason for this blatant and targeted censorship
is that Mineta’s eyewitness testimony is extremely dangerous to the official cover story. The portion of Mineta’s testimony that is particularly dangerous is his claim that Vice President Cheney, in charge in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center (PEOC) beneath the White House since before
Mineta arrived in the PEOC at 9:20am, insisted to an incredulous “young man” that “the orders (given earlier by Cheney to this same individual) still stand” when the man told Cheney that the presumed plane they had been tracking as a blip on a screen was 50, then 30, and finally just 10 miles from Washington—orders which could only have been not to shoot down the plane. Otherwise there would have been no reason for the agent to ask Cheney if they “still” stood, despite the plane’s being almost upon the capital where Cheney himself was. This is critical because of the timing that can be inferred from Mineta’s testimony:
As Mineta arrived at the PEOC at 9:20 am, and as Mineta estimated the “still stand?” interaction between Cheney and the agent happened 5 to 6 minutes after that, or about 9:25, it can be inferred based on the officially given speed of the plane represented by the blip of 540 mph that whatever that fast-approaching blip represented, it arrived
in the vicinity of the Pentagon at approximately 9:32—nowhere close to the original official cover story time of 9:43, or even the six-minute-earlier time the Pentagon finally settled on for an alleged impact time of 9:37.
The Anthrax Connection
Real Terrorists Don’t Use Anthrax
Any evidence linking 9/11 to the anthrax letters – dated September 11 but sent in mid- October and only to Democratic
leaders in Congress, no Republicans – is direct evidence of an inside job because that particular type of anthrax is known to have been of the highly controlled “Ames strain” developed by the US Army at Ft. Detrick, Maryland, and at the University of Iowa in Ames, Iowa. It was also high-spore-count, military-grade weaponized anthrax refined according to a trade secret reportedly held by William Patrick, former Ft. Detrick bioweapons expert,
mentor of Steven Hatfill, the only “person of interest” stalked by the FBI as a suspect in the still “unsolved” anthrax case, and the close friend and colleague of Bush Administration bio-counterterrorism expert Jerry Hauer, a signer of the PNAC manifesto calling for “a new Pearl Harbor.”
On September 11, this same Jerry Hauer personally delivered anti-anthrax Cipro to Vice President Cheney’s staff at the White House. Why? The conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a suit against Vice President Cheney and other Bush Administration officials demanding to know why Cipro was delivered to the executive mansion –– and only to the executive mansion — on the day of the attacks. So far the response has been deafening silence. On September 10, the day before 9/11, FEMA and other emergency response personnel arrived in New York City for a counter-bioterrorism
exercise called “Tripod II” claimed by the Bush administration to have been scheduled to begin September
12. There is reason to believe that the bio-agent this drill was to practice defending against was anthrax, as Jerry Hauer was also a major planner of the New York City exercise. And there is also a strong possibility the true start date for the exercise was September 11, as many “exercise” personnel were already in place in New York City on September 10. As the Air Force’s war game scenario had just “come to life” in real attacks on 9/11, were Hauer and Cheney worried that the same thing might be about to happen with their counter-bioterrorism “exercise” Tripod II? Is this why the anti-anthrax drug Cipro was distributed to the White House, “just in case”? If so, it would be strong evidence that Tripod II was on the scenario of defending New York City against an anthrax attack. Was the “vector,” or delivery vehicle, for that emergency response exercise scenario anthrax attack to have been by air via hijacked plane(s)?
Notably, in their book on bioterrorism, “Germs,” Judith Miller and William Broad claim, apparently from inside sources, that Ramzi Yousef’s plans for the first World Trade Center attack in 1993 included explosively pushing
large quantities of cyanide out into New York City. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the “mastermind” of 9/11, is RamziYousef’s uncle. Finally, former New York City mayor Rudolf Giuliani testified to the 9/11 Commission that when WTC7, the location of his emergency operations center, collapsed on 9/11, he moved those operations to the command and control center set up on Pier 92 for the “Tripod II” bio-terrorism exercise and that it worked even better than the original. Giuliani told the 9/11 Commission, “The reason Pier 92 was selected as a command
center was because on the next day, on September 12, Pier 92 was going to have a drill. It had hundreds of people there—from FEMA, from the Federal Government, from the State [Dept.], from the [New York] State Emergency Management Office—and they were getting ready for a drill for biochemical attack. So that was going
be the place they were going to have the drill. The equipment was already there, so we were able to establish a command center there that was two and a half to three times bigger than the command center that we had lost at 7 World Trade Center. And it was from there that the rest of the (9/11 and subsequent) search and rescue effort was completed.”
December 17th, 2010 – The House of Representatives just voted, 384 to 0, to honor Norman Yoshio Mineta’s accomplishments. One of his greatest accomplishments was keeping quiet about what he knows about 911.
Anthrax is a type of infection most often considered very deadly. It is caused by a kind of bacterium known as Bacillus anthracis. Anthrax outbreaks
have been recorded throughout history, with the latest having been in 2001 when Anthrax spores were used as a biological weapon. The spores in powder form were enclosed in letters and mailed to several people via U.S. mail, killing 5 individuals in the process. It was considered to have been part of the terrorist attacks closely related to the onslaught on the World Trade Center in September 11 of that year.

Barbara Honegger’s Conclusion
It Was Pinky & the Brain …
Covert elements of the US military and intelligence community, not al Qaeda, had the access to plant explosives
inside its own most heavily defended world headquarters, the Pentagon. The US military and intelligence community,
not al Qaeda, had the access to plant the explosives Willy Rodriguez heard and felt go off deep in the sub-basement of the World Trade Center. The US military and intelligence community, not al Qaeda, had the sustained access weeks before 9/11 to also plant controlled demolition charges throughout the superstructures of WTC 1 and WTC2, and in WTC7, which brought down all three buildings on 9/11. The US military and intelligence community,
not al Qaeda, had access to the sulfur-enhanced military-grade thermite (thermate) detected in the WTC needed to melt the steel found molten deep in its basements weeks later. The US military and intelligence
community, not al Qaeda, would have chosen
the least populated and most reinforced section of the Pentagon––its newly upgraded west wedge—to strike, minimizing casualties.
Real terrorists would have maximized them. Real terrorists also would have maximized casualties at the World Trade Center by placing explosives so as to allow the building to fall haphazardly on other buildings and streets around it, not bring it down neatly by controlled demolition into their own footprints, which minimizes casualties. A US military
plane, not one piloted by al Qaeda, performed the highly skilled, steep, high-speed 270 to 330-degree dive towards the Pentagon that Dulles Air Traffic Controllers were sure was a military plane as they watched it on their screens that morning. Only a military aircraft, not a civilian plane flown by al Qaeda, would have given off the “Friendly” signal needed to disable the Pentagon’s anti-aircraft missile batteries as it approached the building. Only the US military, not al Qaeda, had the ability to break all of its Standard Operating Procedures to paralyze its own emergency response system on 9/11. Only the US military, not al Qaeda, had access to the weaponized, military-
grade US Army “Ames strain’ anthrax contained in letters mailed only to Democratic Congressional leaders. It is absurd to believe that al Qaeda would target only Democrats, especially as the US leadership at the time of the attacks was Republican. When he received the anthrax letter dated September 11, then Senate Democratic leader Thomas Daschle was calling for a Congressional investigation of 9/11 and had already been warned off from “looking too closely at” 9/11 by personal calls from both President Bush and Vice President Cheney. When he received his anthrax letter, another Democratic leader, Senator Patrick Leahy, was leading the Congressional resistance to the PATRIOT Act, a premeditated assault on Americans’ privacy and civil liberties justified by “al Qaeda’s” attack clearly Bush Administration well before 9/11 and “in the can” awaiting its “New Pearl Harbor” trigger event.
And who in the U.S. military, intelligence and military contractor chains of command and U.S. civilian leadership are among the prime suspects for these acts of High Treason? First and foremost are the signers of the pre-9/11 Project for a New American Century (PNAC) manifesto calling for “a new Pearl Harbor” to catalyze its global domination agenda:
1. Vice President Dick Cheney;
2. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld;
3. then Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz;
4. Richard Perle, then head of Secretary Rumsfeld’s Defense Policy Board;
5. Jerry Hauer, one of the government’s top bio-terrorism experts who reportedly took anti-anthrax Cipro to the White House on 9/11.
Hauer had been director of NYC Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM), whose personnel were moved to a New York pier on 9/11 just before its offices were destroyed by pre-placed controlled demolition charges. A central
player in scripting the bio/chem terrorism attack
scenario for the Sept. 10/11/12 TRIPOD II exercise
in NYC, Hauer is also an expert in the response to building collapses (New York Times, July 27, 1999). It was Hauer who insisted, despite the 1993 terrorist attack on WTC1, that Giuliani still locate his Office of Emergency Management,
from which a response
to another terrorist attack would have to be orchestrated, in WTC7 next door, and also Hauer who zealously pushed the ‘bin Laden did it and planes-and-fires brought down the Towers’ official story on CBS News on 9/11 in the immediate aftermath of the attacks before anyone without inside knowledge could have possibly determined the actual cause of the collapses, taking pains to state that explosives were not involved, when they were. The OEM opened on the 23rd floor of WTC7 in June 1999, where Hauer, its director, had his office. Hauer was also managing director of Kroll Associates before and on 9/11, the company that provided ‘security’ for the World Trade Center, including all three buildings brought down by controlled demolition that morning, and thus had complete access to pre-place the explosive charges he adamantly insisted on national TV on 9/11 were not involved. Hauer became a National Security adviser to the National Institutes of Health on Sept. 10, the very day TRIPOD II personnel arrived in New York City, from which new NIH post he managed the Bush Administration’s ‘response’ to the imminent anthrax attacks and the initial cover up of the inside job anthrax killers.
Gary Bauer, the right-wing ‘family values’ zealot who ‘happened’ to be one of the ‘witnesses’ to immediately claim publicly to have seen ‘Flight 77 hit the Pentagon’, proven by the evidence to be a physical impossibility; and then National Security Council Middle East adviser Zalmay Khalizad, soon to be the first US Ambassador to Afghanistan after 9/11 and then US Ambassador to Iraq – the very two countries whose invasions were rationalized
as retaliation for the 9/11 attacks. During the Cold War, Khalizad was reportedly a liaison to then CIA “bag man” Osama bin Laden in the CIA-Pakistani ISI covert war against the Soviets in Afghanistan, the crucible from which al Qaeda emerged. ‘Al Qaeda’, in fact, was originally the CIA-ISI list of anti-Soviet foreign fighters in Afghanistan.
Jerry Hauer with Rudolph Giuliani. Now there’s a pair with a flair – for crime.
Gary Bauer is the onetime president of the Family Research Council, founder of the Campaign for Working Families PAC, former presidential candidate, and an enthusiastic
supporter of traditional marriage and turning over Roe v. Wade. He’s also a criminal complicit in the events of 911.

Another key suspect is Air Force General William Hayden, now Director of the CIA and then head of the National Security Agency (NSA), which tapped the calls of lead hijacker Mohamed Atta and 9/11 “mastermind” Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the day before 9/11, and surely on many other occasions before 9/11 as well — all almost certainly without FISA warrants as required by law. These pre-9/11 warrant-less NSA taps put the lie to President
Bush’s claim that he initiated the program of warrant-less NSA taps of al Qaeda suspects because of — and thus only after—9/11. Yet another key suspect is Army Lieutenant General William “Jerry” Boykin, the radical Christian fundamentalist Special Operations commando recently proposed to head the Army’s Special Operations Command. Yet another is the Pentagon’s POP2 office, which reportedly plans and scripts “false flag” operation — attacks orchestrated by the US military but made to appear perpetrated by an outside enemy to justify US military “retaliation.” Yet another suspect is Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) Iran expert Lawrence “Larry” Franklin, who was “loaned” to Perle and Wolfowitz’s neocon co-conspirator Douglas Feith and arrested for passing
national security secrets to Israeli operatives at a meeting of top American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) personnel. Franklin also was and is an officer in the Air Force Reserves, which directed NORAD’s “Vigilant Guardian/Vigilant Warrior” wargame exercises on 9/11.
Scrutiny should also be leveled at the scriptwriters for the NORAD and NRO emergency response exercises planned for and held on 9/11, especially members of their lead “White Teams,” which set the content and then oversee both “Red Team attackers” and “Blue Team defenders” on the actual day of an exercise, in this case on 9/11 itself. And every one of the as-yet-to-be-identified “top Pentagon officials” who on Sept. 10, the day before 9/11, according to Newsweek, suddenly cancelled their already-booked flights for September 11. Also National Military Command Center (NMCC) commander Brig. Gen. Montague Winfield, who on that same day, September
10, asked his deputy, Navy Capt. Charles Leidig to take over for him the next morning between 8:30 and 10:30 – precisely the time window of the “game” whose details and date had been given to Atta.
Further investigation should be directed at the (government) “agency” the 9/11 Commission revealed, without identifying it by name (probably the CIA), took out the vast majority of the put options on American Airlines, United Airlines, Boeing and Morgan Stanley Dean Witter in the few days before 9/11.
Also, Michael Chertoff, US Attorney for the District of New Jersey during the first 1993 attack on the World Trade Center who, as a private attorney, represented Egyptian-born US resident Magdy Elamir, under investigation for illegally diverting millions of dollars and whose brother, Mohammed Elamir, funded arms smugglers linked to al Qaeda. Significantly, Mohamed Atta’s name in his country of birth, Egypt, was also Mohamed Elamir. In other words, the very man President Bush put in charge of the entire 9/11 “investigation” and who is now Director of Homeland Security — the top official charged with defending the U.S. mainland from an attack by al Qaeda — may have himself been directly involved with Al Qaeda and even with Mohamed, and Atta.
And FBI headquarters supervisor David Frasca and his deputy Michael Maltbie, who ignored 70 pleas by Zacarias Moussaoui’s FBI interrogator to let him investigate the contents of Moussaoui’s computer before 9/11. Attention should especially be directed to Phillip Zelikow, NSC adviser along with Zalmay Khalizad to then NSC Adviser Condoleezza Rice before and on 9/11. Zelikow both orchestrated The 9/11 Commission Report cover up of the administration’s inside job and, at Rice’s personal request, rewrote the Bush administration’s official national strategic plan draft to better match the global domination agenda of the pre-9/11 PNAC manifesto.
Zelikow specializes in political mythologies, clearly the most important qualification for his selection as executive
director of the Official Myth of Sept. 11 – The 9/11 Commission Report. Only someone in the inner circle of the actual criminal conspiracy would be trusted with this mission. These are just some of the names being knitted into the scroll of the September 11 Truth Revolution.
The Authors Opinion
On The Honegger Report
Heroes Go Unnoticed
Barbara Honegger is a hero, a heroine, a woman seeking the truth. For that reason alone I have to give her all the credit she’s due. She get’s it all just about right when it comes to the Pentagon and the Twin Towers.
Unfortunately she does fail in regard to pinpointing exactly why and who was responsible for 911 because she leaves George Bush out of the equation and she seems not to know much about the SEC, the Federal Reserve, the military brass, the banks, the gold and the securities.
That’s OK, she did a wonderful job on a subject that’s a minefield of lies. In the following pages we explore why 911 was a necessary appurtenance
to the vast global financial manipulations that have been going on for the last 30 years or more. When National Security is at stake, or when your ass is in the ringer, the sacrifice of almost 3,000 Americans seems like a small price to pay if you’re a criminal psychopath. These people are criminal psychopaths. Let’s make no mistake on that issue. Anyone with the force of character and determination (it’s called moxie) to sacrifice almost 3,000 innocent Americans, or even 1, and then to further
murder half a million children with sanctions and execute another 1 million or more with bullets, and to do so by sending young, uneducated, generally less mature American men into a battle zone to get the job done, is a criminal psychopath. This, done under the guise of Patriotism and Nationalism is the stuff the Third Reich was made of.

Barbara Honegger is right. So is April Gallop. So is Willy Rodriguez. There were
bombs in the Pentagon. There were bombs in the Twin Towers. There were bombs
everywhere and the Twin Towers were demolished by something other then commercial
jets in what was so obviously a controlled demolition. Nevertheless, people
still suffer from cognitive dissonance and see 19 Muslims gypsy’s from a cave in
Afghanistan as the masters of illusion.

Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)
We do know, for example, that the Israeli government has supported the extra-judicial
murder of quite a few people but that’s history you can discover for yourself. Recently we all saw that the Israeli government murdered, again extra-judicially, a Hamas member in Dubai. The Mossad operatives used stolen passports from several
countries including Ireland, Australia and even Israel. Perhaps the 19 Islamic
hijackers never boarded the planes and the real perpetrators were using stolen passports as their identification? That seems to be the case since the majority of the hijackers are still alive and living and working in various countries and most have, in fact, reported their passports stolen at some point. Were the planes remotely flown drones and the hijackers covert operatives that disappeared back into the civilian population? Very likely they were and very likely they did.
A Dubai Extra-Judicial Assassination
This Ain’t Pinky & The Brain
Dressed in tennis gear and carrying racquets and balls, the guests who wandered through the lobby of Dubai’s al-Bustan Rotana hotel on Jan 19 couldn’t have looked less threatening. But within hours they and nine accomplices had carried out the ruthlessly efficient assassination of the Hamas military Commander Mahmoud
al-Mabhouh, who had just a few seconds’ warning of his fate as the killers overpowered him in his room.
The murder bears the hallmarks of a meticulously-planned operation by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad. The alleged hit team, travelling on forged British, Irish, German and French passports, spent no more than 19 hours in the Gulf state, killing Mr Mabhouh just five hours after he had flown in from Syria. After trawling through dozens of hours of CCTV footage, investigators have been able to piece together a minute-by-minute reconstruction of how the hit unfolded.
The 11-strong team (a total of 23 agents participated) arrived in Dubai in the early hours of January 19th, 2010, on flights from France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland,
dressed as business people with trolley bags and laptops and blending in perfectly with other passengers. As they checked into several different hotels, a young woman carrying a false Irish passport in the name of Gail Folliard, was filmed accepting the help of a porter to carry her bag. A man using the name Kevin Daveron, and using another fake Irish passport checked into a different room in the same hotel ten minutes later, and at 2:29am a man using a French passport under the name Peter Elvinger arrived at the airport with a jumper slung casually over his shoulders.
15 of the 23 suspected Mossad Operatives who participated in the extra-judicial execution of Mr. Mabhouh.
Page 162 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 163 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
‘Elvinger’, who is now thought to be the leader of the squad, was met on his arrival by another member of the team, before the two left the airport in opposite directions. After a few hours sleep the team began to assemble for instructions at a shopping centre, though at no point did any of them call each other – instead they used a series of telephone numbers in Austria, which was described by Dubai investigators as a ‘command centre’ for the operation.
‘Elvinger’, now dressed in a striped T-shirt, carrying a rucksack, and wearing a cap to disguise his features, arrived around 10:30am, followed by five other members of the team including the woman. Two hours later the suspects left, one of them carrying shopping bags, and headed back to their hotels, where they began to check out at around 1:30pm. ‘Daveron’ went straight to another hotel, where he disappeared into the lavatories, emerging in a wig and glasses, and then on to a third hotel to meet up with the team again. At 2:00pm, more than an hour before their target had even arrived in Dubai, the first of several surveillance teams arrived at the al-Bustan Rotana hotel dressed in their tennis gear.
Another team had been sent to an alternative hotel in case Mr. Mabhouh checked in there but they left when they later received a call to say their intended victim had checked in at the al-Bustan. Quite why Mr Mabhouh risked travelling to Dubai from Syria, his home of the past 20 years, remains a mystery, though there have been suggestions
that he could have been lured there on the pretext of carrying out an arms deal for Hamas.
He arrived in Dubai using the name Mahmoud Abdul Ra’ouf Mohammed at 3:20pm and was immediately spotted
at the airport by a member of another surveillance team who had been expectantly lying in wait. As he arrived at the al-Bustan hotel, the ‘tennis players,’ one of whom appeared to be wearing a false moustache and glasses, got into the lift with him and followed him to room 230. They then passed on the details of the room number to ‘Elvinger,’ possibly using a radio worn on the wrist, enabling ‘Elvinger’ to check into room 237, across the corridor
from Mr Mabhouh.
At 4:00pm a new surveillance team arrived at the hotel wearing track suits, T-shirts and caps and carrying shoulder
bags, to help the tennis players keep an eye on their target. Mr. Mabhouh left the hotel at 4:23pm, followed closely by one of the surveillance team, just before ‘Elvinger’ arrived to check into room 237 where he was joined by the woman and ‘Daveron’. While the Hamas leader was out, the hit squad busily got to work trying to break into his room. Four burly men, with caps pulled down over their faces, arrived at 6:32pm, followed by another woman wearing a floppy hat, who has not been identified, and a man in a straw boater who took over surveillance from the tennis players.
The assassins tried to break into Mr. Mabhouh’s room, and attempted to re-program the door lock as the innocent-looking couple kept lookout in the hallway. They were disturbed by a guest returning to her room and police believe
they had to abandon their original plan – probably involving lying in wait for Mr. Mabhouh inside his room – and decided instead to fool him into opening it when he returned.
When Mr. Mabhouh arrived back at the hotel at 8:24pm, dressed in a checked shirt, jacket and jeans and carrying a white plastic bag, he had just minutes to live. After he went back to his room, the female member of the hit team emerged from her room, grinning broadly, as the four burly members of the alleged assassination team went to work. Footage of what happened next has not been released by police, but at some point during the 22 minutes which followed, Mr. Mabhouh probably opened his door to his killers, who pinned him down and suffocated him.
They somehow managed to lock the door from the inside and put the latch and chain in place before they left. Tellingly,
when the four alleged assassins caught a lift back down to the lobby, one of them was wearing a bandage on his arm. By 10:30pm the woman and ‘Daveron’ were at Dubai airport to catch a flight to Paris, followed over the next 12 hours by the rest of the team, who flew to such scattered destinations as Frankfurt, Hong Kong and South Africa.
By the time Mr. Mabhouh’s body was found at 1:30pm on January 20th, when he failed to check out of his room, his killers were thousands of miles away.
The assassination was, as the Dubai authorities have been at pains to point out, “carried out by a professional team that is highly skilled in these kinds of operations.”
What other species does this sort of thing?

SMACSONIC ® (SMACTANE)
A Viscoelastic Material With Energetic Nano-Composite Potential
Statement by Airforce Top Gun and commercial pilot Captain Field McConnell:
“SMACSONIC® can be installed in aircraft insulation because it looks like regular insulation and it can be used as a thermal, a vibrational or a sound insulation, but also, if you hit it with a certain type of electro-magnetic energy
or electronic trigger, you can cause the entire fuselage of the aircraft that’s surrounded by the insulation to reach fifty-eight hundred degrees Fahrenheit;
literally instantaneously which blows the tail off the airplane like it did the seven fifty-seven at Shanksville.
It turns what’s left of the aircraft into a missile that burns up and turns into plasma before any of the big parts hit the ground.”
From the SMAC web site:
SMAC personnel are specialists in bonding elastomer to other materials, including steel, copper,
bronze, aluminium, titanium, composite, polyamid, PTFE and glass. We develop our own compounds
and finished products to verify compliance with customer specifications.
Key here is the aluminum component
which would, of course, allow for an energetic nano-composite, an explosive to be made out of an entire commercial jet or droned aircraft. This would account for the fact that the planes that struck the Twin Towers appeared to be absorbed by the buildings. The planes, if you watch the many vid
eos, simply melted into the buildings. These planes did not display the normal characteristics of large jumbo jets hitting stationary building structures at all. Something else happened. Again, the planes virtually disintegrated. Since few of us have ever actually witnessed a commercial jet hitting a stationary structure at speed, we haven’t a clue what it “should” look like. There are numerous images of various plane crashes across the internet and studying them portrays reality. Commercial jets do not disintegrate when they come into contact with stationary structures or even the ground, at speed.
This would also account for the very brief but clearly visible flash seen just before each plane comes into contact with the Twin Towers. This flash is visible in every video regardless of where the video originated. Each and every video shown globally contains the split second flash at the nose of the plane just a millisecond prior to impact. This could be why the planes simply melted into the Twin Towers. Smac.

Ten Direct Connections
Between NIST and Energetic Nano-Thermates
“Was the steel tested for explosives or thermite residues? …
“NIST did not test for the residue of these compounds in the steel.”
NIST Responses to FAQs, August 2006
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has had considerable difficulty determining a politically
correct sequence of events for the unprecedented destruction of three World Trade Center (WTC) buildings
on 911. But despite a number of variations in NIST’s story, it never considered explosives or pyrotechnic materials
in any of its hypotheses. This omission is at odds with several other striking facts; first, the requirement of the
national standard for fire investigation (NFPA 921), which calls for testing related to thermite and other pyrotechnics,
and second, the extensive experience NIST investigators have with explosives and thermite materials.
One of the most intriguing aspects of NIST’s diversionary posture has been their total lack of interest in explosive
or pyrotechnic features in their explanations. Despite the substantial evidence for the use of explosives at
the WTC, and the extensive expertise in explosives among NIST investigators, explosives were never considered
in the NIST WTC investigation. Only after considerable criticism of this fact did NIST deign to add one small
disclaimer to their final report on the towers, suggesting they found no evidence for explosives.
The extensive evidence that explosives were used at the WTC includes witness testimony, overwhelming physical
evidence and simple common sense. There is also substantial evidence that aluminothermic (thermite) materials
were present at the WTC, and the presence of such materials can explain the existence of intense fire where it
would not otherwise have existed. Additionally, despite agreement from all parties that the assumed availability
of fuel allowed for the fires in any given location of each of the WTC buildings to last only twenty minutes (NIST
2007), the fires lasted much longer and produced extreme temperatures (Jones and Farrer et al 2008).
These inexplicable fires are a reminder that the WTC buildings were not simply demolished, but were demolished
in a deceptive way. That is, the buildings were brought down so as to make it look like the impact of the
planes and the resulting fires might have caused their unprecedented, symmetrical destruction. Therefore, shaped
charges and other typical explosive configurations were likely used, but there was more to it than that. Those committing
the crimes needed to create fire where it would not have existed otherwise, and draw attention toward the
part of the buildings where the planes impacted, or in the case of WTC 7, away from the building altogether.
This was most probably accomplished through the use of nano-thermites, which are high-tech energetic materials
made by mixing ultra fine grain (UFG) aluminum and UFG metal oxides; usually iron oxide, molybdenum oxide
or copper oxide, although other compounds can be used (Prakash 2005, Rai 2005). The mixing is accomplished
by adding these reactants to a liquid solution where they form what are called “sols”, and then adding a gelling
agent that captures these tiny reactive combinations in their intimately mixed state (LLNL 2000). The resulting
“sol-gel” is then dried to form a porous reactive material that can be ignited in a number of ways.
The high surface area of the reactants within energetic sol-gels allows for the far higher rate of energy release than
is seen in “macro” thermite mixtures, making nano-thermites “high explosives” as well as pyrotechnic materials
(Tillitson et al 1999). Sol-gel nano-thermites, are often called energetic nanocomposites, metastable intermolecular
composites (MICs) or superthermite (COEM 2004, Son et al 2007), and silica is often used to create the
porous, structural framework (Clapsaddle et al 2004, Zhao et al 2004). Nano-thermites have also been made with
RDX (Pivkina et al 2004), and with thermoplastic elastomers (Diaz et al 2003). But it is important to remember
that, despite the name, nano-thermites pack a much bigger punch than typical thermite materials.
NIST was working with
to test and characterize
these sol-gel nano-thermites
at least as early as 1999
Page 170 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 171
It turns out that explosive, sol-gel nano-thermites were developed by US government scientists, at Lawrence
Livermore National Laboratories (LLNL) (Tillitson et al 1998, Gash et al 2000, Gash et al 2002). These LLNL
scientists reported that —
“The sol-gel process is very amenable to dip-, spin-, and spray-coating technologies to coat surfaces. We have
utilized this property to dip-coat various substrates to make sol-gel Fe,O,/ Al / Viton coatings. The energetic coating
dries to give a nice adherent film. Preliminary experiments indicate that films of the hybrid material are selfpropagating
when ignited by thermal stimulus” (Gash et al 2002).
The amazing correlation between floors of impact and floors of apparent failure suggests that spray-on nano-thermite
materials may have been applied to the steel components of the WTC buildings, underneath the upgraded
fireproofing (Ryan 2008). This could have been done in such a way that very few people knew what was happening.
The Port Authority’s engineering consultant Buro Happold, helping with evaluation of the fireproofing
upgrades, suggested the use of “alternative materials” (NIST 2005). Such alternative materials could have been
spray-on nano-thermites substituted for intumescent paint or Interchar-like fireproofing primers (NASA 2006). It
seems quite possible that this kind of substitution could have been made with few people noticing.
Regardless of how thermite materials were installed in the WTC, it is strange that NIST has been so blind to any
such possibility. In fact, when reading NIST’s reports on the WTC, and its periodic responses to FAQs from the
public, one might get the idea that no one in the NIST organization had ever heard of nano-thermites before. But
the truth is, many of the scientists and organizations involved in the NIST WTC investigation were not only well
aware of nano-thermites, they actually had considerable connection to, and in some cases expertise in, this exact
technology. Here are the top ten reasons why nano-thermites, and nano-thermite coatings, should have come to
mind quickly for the NIST WTC investigators.
1. NIST was working with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories to test and characterize these sol-gel nanothermites,
at least as early as 1999 (Tillitson et al 1999).
2. Forman Williams, the lead engineer on NIST’s advisory committee, and the most prominent engineering expert
for Popular Mechanics, is an expert on the deflagration of energetic materials and the “ignition of porous energetic
materials”(Margolis and Williams 1996, Telengator et al 1998, Margolis and Williams 1999). Nano-thermites are
porous energetic materials. Additionally, Williams’ research partner, Stephen Margolis, has presented at conferences
where nano-energetics are the focus (Gordon 1999). Some of Williams’ other colleagues at the University
of California San Diego, like David J. Benson, are also experts on nano-thermite materials (Choi et al 2005, Jordan
et al 2007).
3. Science Applications International (SAIC) is the DOD and Homeland Security contractor that supplied the
largest contingent of non-governmental investigators to the NIST WTC investigation. SAIC has extensive links
to nano-thermites, developing and judging nano-thermite research proposals for the military and other military
contractors, and developing and formulating nano-thermites directly (Army 2008, DOD 2007). SAIC’s subsidiary
Applied Ordnance Technology has done research on the ignition of nanothermites with lasers (Howard et al
In an interesting coincidence, SAIC was the firm that investigated the 1993 WTC bombing, boasting that — “After
the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, our blast analyses produced tangible results that helped identify those
responsible (SAIC 2004).” And the coincidences with this company don’t stop there, as SAIC was responsible
for evaluating the WTC for terrorism risks in 1986 as well (CRHC 2008). SAIC is also linked to the late 1990s
security upgrades at the WTC, the Rudy Giuliani administration, and the anthrax incidents after 9/11, through
former employees Jerome Hauer and Steven Hatfill.

advisory committee, and the most prominent

4. Arden Bement, the metallurgist and expert on fuels and materials who was nominated as director of NIST by President George W. Bush in October 2001, was former Deputy Secretary of Defense, former director of DARPA’s
office of materials science, and former executive at TRW.
Of course, DOD and DARPA are both leaders in the production and use of nano-thermites (Amptiac 2002, DOD 2005). And military and aerospace contractor TRW has had a long collaboration with NASA laboratories in the development of energetic materials that are components of advanced propellants, like nano-gelled explosive materials
(NASA 2001). TRW Aeronautics also made fireproof composites and high performance elastomer formulations,
and worked with NASA to make energetic aerogels.
Additionally, Bement was a professor at Purdue and MIT. Purdue has a thriving program for nano-thermites (Son 2008). And interestingly, at MIT’s Institute for Soldier Nanotechnology, we find Martin Z. Bazant, son of notable “conspiracy debunker” Zdenek P. Bazant (MIT 2008), who does research on granular flows, and the electrochemical
interactions of silicon. Zdenek P. Bazant is interested in nanocomposites as well (Northwestern 2008), and how they relate to naval warfare (ONR 2008). MIT was represented at nano-energetics conferences as early as 1998 (Gordon 1998).
Bement was also a director at both Battelle and the Lord Corporation. Battelle (where the anthrax was made) is an organization of “experts in fundamental technologies from the five National Laboratories we manage or co-manage for the US DOE.” Battelle advertises their specialization in nanocomposite coatings (Battelle 2008). The Lord Corporation also makes high-tech coatings for military applications (Lord 2008). In 1999, Lord Corp was working with the Army and NASA on “advanced polymer composites, advanced metals, and multifunctional materials” (Army 1999).
5. Hratch Semerjian, long-time director of NIST’s chemical division, was promoted to acting director of NIST in November 2004, and took over the WTC investigation until the completion of the report on the towers. Semerjian
is closely linked to former NIST employee Michael Zachariah, perhaps the world’s most prominent expert on nano-thermites (Zachariah 2008). In fact, Semerjian and Zachariah co-authored ten papers that focus on nano-particles made of silica, ceramics and refractory particles. Zachariah was a major player in the Defense University
Research Initiative on Nanotechnology (DURINT), a groundbreaking research effort for nano-thermites.
6. NIST has a long-standing partnership with NASA for the development of new nano-thermites and other nano-technological materials. In fact, Michael Zachariah coordinates this partnership (CNMM 2008).
7. In 2003, two years before the NIST WTC report was issued, the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) and NIST signed a memorandum of understanding to develop nano-technologies like nano-thermites (NIST 2003). Together, NIST and UMCP have done much work on nano-thermites (NM2 2008).
8. NIST has their own Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST 2008). Additionally, NIST’s Reactive
Flows Group did research on nanostructured materials and high temperature reactions in the mid-nineties (NRFG 1996).
9. Richard Gann, who did the final editing of the NIST WTC report, managed a project called “Next-Generation Fire Suppression Technology Program”, both before and after 9/11. Andrzej Miziolek, another of the world’s leading experts on nano-thermites (Amptiac 2002), is the author of “Defense Applications of Nanomaterials”, and also worked on Richard Gann’s fire suppression project (Gann 2002). Gann’s project was sponsored by DOD’s Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), an organization that sponsored a number of LLNL’s nano-thermite projects (Simpson 2002, Gash et al 2003).
10. As part of the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer, NIST partners with the Naval Surface nano
NIST has their own
Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology
Additionally, NIST’s Reactive Flows Group
did research on nanostructured materials
and high temperature reactions
in the mid1990s

Warfare Center at Indian Head (NSWC-IH) on Chemical Science and Technology (FLCTT 2008). NSWC-IH is probably the most prominent US center for nano-thermite technology (NSWC 2008). In 1999, Jan Puszynski, a scientist working for the DURINT program, helped NSWC-IH design a pilot plant to produce nano-size aluminum powder. It was reported that “At that time, this was [the] only reliable source of aluminum nanopowders in the United States” (SDSMT 2001), however, private companies like Argonide and Technanogy were also known to have such capabilities.
Among an interesting group of contractors that Naval Surface Warfare Center at Indian Head hired in 1999 were SAIC, Applied Ordnance, Battelle, Booz Allen Hamilton, Mantech, Titan, Pacific Scientific Energetic and R. Stresau Laboratories
for “demolition materials” (NSWC 2000).
A tragic coincidence left William Caswell, an employee of Naval Surface Warfare Center at Indian Head, dead on the plane said to have hit the Pentagon (Flight 77). He had for many years worked on “deep-black” projects at NSWC-IH (Leaf 2007).
The presence of Pacific Scientific Energetics (PSE) in this list of 1999 NSWC-IH contractors is interesting because PSE was the parent company of Special Devices,
Inc (SDI). SDI specializes in explosives for defense, aerospace and mining applications, and was acquired in 1998 by John Lehman, 9/11 Commissioner, member of the Project for a New American Century, and former Secretary of the Navy (SDI 2008). Lehman divested in 2001.
With this in mind, it is worthwhile
to reiterate that nano-thermite materials were very likely used in the deceptive
demolition of the WTC buildings, but most certainly played only a part in the plan. However, other high-tech explosives were available to those who had access to nano-thermite materials at the time. Like SDI, several other organizations with links to military, space and intelligence
programs (e.g. In-Q-Tel, Orbital Science) have access to many types of high-tech explosives to cut high-strength bolts and produce pyrotechnic
events (Goldstein 2006). These organizations also have connections to those who could have accessed the buildings, like WTC tenant Marsh & McLennan and former NASA administrator and Securacom director, James Abrahamson.
In any case, it is important for those seeking the truth about 9/11 to consider what organizations and people had access to the technologies
that were used to accomplish
the deceptive demolition of the WTC buildings. It is also important to recognize the links between those who had access to the technologies, those who had access to the buildings, and those who produced the clearly false official
To that end we should note that NIST had considerable connections to nano-thermites, both before and during the WTC investigation. It is therefore inexplicable why NIST did not consider such materials as an explanation for the fires that burned on 9/11, and long afterward at Ground Zero. This fact would not be inexplicable, of course, if those managing the NIST investigation knew that they better not look for or test for such materials.

According to the official story, teams of four and five Islamic hijackers took over Flights 11, 175, 77, and 93. Victims lists for the four planes
published by CNN and elsewhere are free of Arab names. This fact has been highlighted as suspicious by some researchers describing the lists
as passenger manifests. However, these lists are not passenger manifests, but lists of victims, and hence include an implicit rationale for excluding
alleged hijackers. In a different part of the CNN.com website not directly referenced by the above-mentioned flight victims pages — entitled
“September 11: A Memorial” — CNN describes its criteria for including persons in its memorial in a pop-up window labeled “About this site”:
• CONFIRMED DEAD Includes victims who have been confirmed dead by a coroner’s office or the Defense Department. It also includes those
a court has declared legally dead, even if no body has been recovered. Once the court has made such a finding, a death certificate can be issued.
• REPORTED DEAD Includes those whose deaths have been reported by family, employers, mortuaries, places of worship or by the airlines
that listed them as aboard one of the four flights. Includes people for whom memorial services have been held, even if their bodies have not been
recovered or positively identified. (Those identified by federal authorities as the hijackers are not included).
Of the 19 identities assigned by the FBI to the alleged suicide hijackers of the four commandeered jetliners, at least six have been disputed. The
FBI’s September 14, 2001 press release identifying the suspects included names and, in some cases, other personal details. The FBI’s September
27, 2001 press release included color photographs for each of the 19 suspects.
A handful of reports, most from one to two weeks after the attack, identified at least six men living in the Middle East whose names — and in some
cases other identifying details such as actual passport photographs — matched those on the FBI’s list.
However, 6 of these men are still alive and as we’ve seen earlier in this book, Mohamed Atta’s father claims his son is also still alive. When asked
where his son was, Atta’s father stated, “ask the Mossad.”
Abdulaziz Alomari was identified by the FBI as the hijacker who accompanied Mohamed Atta from the connecting flight from Portland and
helped him hijack and pilot Flight 11 into the North Tower. Abdulaziz told the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper: “The name [listed
by the FBI] is my name and the birth date is the same as mine, but I am not the one who bombed the World Trade Center in New York.” Saudi
Embassy officials in Washington defended the innocence of Alomari, saying that his passport was stolen in 1996 and that he had reported the
theft to the police.
Saeed Alghamdi, a Saudi Airlines pilot, was identified by the FBI of being a hijacker of Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania. Alghamdi was
“shocked and furious” to learn this three days after the attack, noting that his name, place of residence, date of birth, and occupation matched
those described by the FBI. “You cannot imagine what it is like to be described as a terrorist – and a dead man – when you are innocent and alive,”
said Alghamdi, who considered legal action against the FBI.

In July of 2006 a large collection of documents
was published on a website containing
prosecution and defense exhibits for the trial
of Zacarias Moussaoui. Included in the prosecution
exhibits are a set of Flash presentations
detailing the government’s account of
the passengers on all four commandeered
jetliners. I’ve downloaded those exhibits and
portions of the FBI Moussaoui

Al-Hamzi was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 77, thought to have crashed into the Pentagon.
Al-Hamzi said: “I have never been to the United States and have not been out of Saudi Arabia in the past two years.”
Al-Nami was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 93. Al-Nami said: “I’m still alive, as you can see. I was shocked to see my name mentioned by the American Justice Department. I had never even heard of Pennsylvania where the plane I was supposed to have hijacked.”
Waleed Alshehri, a Saudi Arabian pilot, was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 11. Alshehri turned up in Morocco after the attack where he contacted both the Saudi and American authorities to tell them he was not involved in the attack.
Abdulrahman al-Omari, a Saudi Airlines pilot, was identified by the FBI as one of the hijackers of Flight 11. After learning this, he visited the US consulate in Jeddah to demand an explanation.

Ameer and Adnan Bukhari were named by CNN as suspected hijackers of Flight 175, the jetliner which crashed into the South Tower, in an article dated 9/13/01. In a correction, CNN stated that Ameer Bukhari died in a small plane crash in Florida, and that Adnan was still alive in Florida, having passed a polygraph test to confirm his innocence.
In spite of the widespread circulation of the news stories referenced above noting problems with the FBI’s identification
of the alleged hijackers, neither the FBI nor the 9/11 Commission addressed the issue. The 9/11 Commission
Report simply repeats the official narrative with the FBI’s original set of 19 suicide hijackers in Chapter 1 and goes into great detail about the men in Chapter 7 and in the Notes.
In 2006, the BBC published an effective repudiation of its 2001 coverage of the identities story, deferring to the 9/11 Commission and boasting that it “carried the full report, executive summary and main findings” while failing to note the Commission’s silence on discrepancies in the FBI’s identifications. In contrast to its earlier investigative
journalism, the BBC now simply parroted the FBI: “The FBI is confident that it has positively identified the nineteen hijackers responsible for the 911 terrorist attacks. Also, the 911 investigation was thoroughly reviewed by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States and the House and Senate Joint Inquiry. Neither of these reviews ever raised the issue of doubt about the identity of the nineteen hijackers.
The apparent discrepancies in the FBI’s identification of suspects raises many questions but provides few answers.
The failure of official agencies to address this issue may appear suspicious, but it may reflect an opinion that the “hijackers alive” story doesn’t pose a threat to the official account. It appears that what we have here is a case very similar, strangely identical to the Mossad Operation in Dubai where in an extra-judicial execution numerous agents used stolen and faked passports of people who were, in fact, still alive. There’s a method to the madness and I’ve been asked why Intelligence Operatives would use the identification of actual living people when they could just as easily use passports of dead or wholly made-up people, and of course they could. But if these operatives were to do that they would then risk their covert operation being discovered and possibly even falling apart completely were they to be checked and discovered by airline personnel, police or security staff at airports, train stations and bus depots.
The Flight Manifest
As we’ve already discussed, the airlines, CNN, the FBI and other sources have made various lists available detailing
the passengers on the 4 planes, Flight 11, Flight 77, Flight 93 and Flight 175. There’s been a great deal of controversy surrounding these manifests but as far as I can tell I’ve managed to find the actual manifests. Below is the actual Manifest released by Amercan Airlines for Flight 77. I’ve circled the Al-Hamzi brothers names even though we know they weren’t on the flight.

Late in the day on 9/11, CNN put out a story that began: “Barbara Olson, a conservative commentator and attorney, alerted her husband, Solicitor General Ted Olson, that the plane she was on was being hijacked Tuesday morning, Ted Olson told CNN.” According to this story, Olson reported that his wife had “called him twice on a cell phone from American Airlines Flight 77,” saying that “all passengers and flight personnel, including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed hijackers. The only weapons she mentioned were knives and cardboard box cutters.”
Ted Olson’s report was very important. It provided the only evidence that American 77, which was said to have struck the Pentagon, had still been aloft after it had disappeared from FAA radar around 9:00 AM. Also, Barbara Olson had been a very well-known commentator on CNN. The report that she died in a plane that had been hijacked
by Arab Muslims was an important factor in getting the nation’s support for the Bush administration’s “war on terror.” Ted Olson’s report was important in still another way, being the sole source of the widely accepted idea that the hijackers had box cutters.
However, although Ted Olson’s report of phone calls from his wife has been a central pillar of the official account of 9/11, this report has been completely undermined. Olson began this process of undermining by means of self-contradictions. He first told CNN, as we have seen, that his wife had “called him twice on a cell phone.” But he contradicted this claim on September 14, telling Hannity and Colmes that she had reached him by calling the Department
of Justice collect. Therefore, she must have been using the “airplane phone,” he surmised, because “she somehow didn’t have access to her credit cards.” However, this version of Olson’s story, besides contradicting his first version, was even self-contradictory, because a credit card is needed to activate a passenger-seat phone.
Later that same day, moreover, Olson told Larry King Live that the second call from his wife suddenly went dead because “the signals from cell phones coming from airplanes don’t work that well.” After that return to his first version, he finally settled on the second version, saying that his wife had called collect and hence must have used “the phone in the passengers’ seats” because she did not have her purse. By finally settling on this story, Olson avoided a technological pitfall. Given the cell phone system employed in 2001, high-altitude cell phone calls from airliners were impossible, or at least virtually so (Olson’s statement that “the signals from cell phones coming from airplanes don’t work that well” was a considerable understatement). The technology to enable cell phone calls from high-altitude airline flights was not created until 2004.
However, Olson’s second story, besides being self-contradictory, was contradicted by American Airlines. A 911 researcher, knowing that AA Flight 77 was a Boeing 757, noticed that AA’s website indicated that its 757s do not have passenger-seat phones. After he wrote to ask if that had been the case on September 11, 2001, an AA customer
service representative replied: “That is correct; we do not have phones on our Boeing 757. The passengers on flight 77 used their own personal cellular phones to make out-going calls during the terrorist attack.” In response to this revelation, defenders of the official story might reply that Ted Olson was evidently right the first time: she had used her cell phone. However, besides the fact that this scenario is rendered unlikely by the cell phone technology employed in 2001, it has also been contradicted by the FBI. Olson’s Story Contradicted by the FBI? Yes, exactly.
The most serious official contradiction of Ted Olson’s story came in 2006 at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called 20th hijacker. The evidence presented at this trial by the FBI included a report on phone calls from all four 9/11 flights. In its report on American Flight 77, the FBI report attributed only one call to Barbara Olson and it was an “unconnected call,” which (of course) lasted “0 seconds” as can be clearly seen in the FBI trial exhibit on the facing page. According to the FBI, therefore, Ted Olson did not receive a single call from his wife using either a cell phone or an onboard phone.
Back on 911, the FBI itself had interviewed Olson. A report of that interview indicates that Olson told the FBI agents that his wife had called him twice from Flight 77. And yet the FBI’s report on calls from Flight 77, presented
in 2006, indicated that no such calls occurred.
This was an amazing development: The FBI is part of the Department of Justice, and yet its report undermined the well-publicized claim of the DOJ’s former solicitor general that he had received two calls from his wife on 911. Ted Olson’s story has also been quietly rejected by the historians who wrote Pentagon 911, a treatment of the Pentagon attack put out by the Department of Defense.
According to Olson, his wife had said that “all passengers and flight personnel, including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed hijackers.” This is an inherently implausible scenario. We are supposed to believe that 60-some people, including the two pilots, were held at bay by three or four men (one or two of the hijackers would have been in the cockpit) with knives and boxcutters. This scenario becomes even more absurd when we realize that the alleged hijackers were all small, unathletic men (the 9/11 Commission pointed out that even “the so-called muscle hijackers actually were not physically imposing, as the majority of them were between 5’5” and 5’7” in height and slender in build”, and that the pilot, Charles “Chic” Burlingame, was a weightlifter and a boxer, who was described as “really tough” by one of his erstwhile opponents. Also, the idea that Burlingame
would have turned over the plane to hijackers was rejected by his brother, who said: “I don’t know what happened in that cockpit, but I’m sure that they would have had to incapacitate him or kill him because he would have done anything to prevent the kind of tragedy that befell that airplane.”
Obviously Barbara Olsen’s phone calls were a figment of someone’s wild imagination. What’s certain, beyond any doubt, is that the government version of this conspiracy is also wild imagination.

Of the 1765 reported deaths in Word Trade Centers One and Two, 721 of those deaths were at Cantor-Fitzgerald and Eurobrokers and 39 of 40 Office Of Naval Intelligence financial fraud investigators were killed as well. Seven Raytheon employees were also killed on three of the four planes and all seven were working on technology associated with remote commercial jet flight and engineering and applied science related to drones. The one person that could have enlightened the world to the financial
frauds at BoNY associated with 911, Michael Diaz-Piedra, and who had insider knowledge was also killed. Diaz-Prieta was a former West Point graduate and son of a Cuban exile. Michael was the Vice-President of Disaster Recovery Planning for the Bank of New York. In the aftermath of September
11, his death was mis-reported first as being an employee of Bank of America (below) rather then Bank Of New York and then as being in “money planning” at Bank Of New York (above).

What Actually Happened On 911
At this point I think it’s safe to say that the reader can easily see how 911 was pulled
off using the QRS11 Gyro Chip to command and control the planes from the ground
at take-off. It’s unlikely the planes even had pilots. Large commercial jets, Boeings
in fact, were not only equipped with ground command gyro chips but the advanced
technology used to do so has been known and in practice at least since the mid-1980s
as established by the Controlled Impact Demonstration.
Smacsonic lining the bulkheads caused the planes to literally melt into the buildings
and the plasma generated from the intense heat of the energetic nano-composite Smac
caused enormous fires; an uncontrolled conflagration.
Mohamed Atta was not a Muslim terrorist but rather a CIA/Mossad asset with a clear
agenda; to fool the public and establish a relationship to Osama bin Laden who, in his
very first video in September of 2001 made the very clear claim that he had nothing to do
with the events of 911 and that his religion, Islam, prevented him from harming innocent
people. Not so for the very Anglo perpetrators of the attacks on September 11th.
The banking community, the SEC, the Federal Reserve, the military, the
intelligence community and the political elite were intricately

The CIA Denies Earl Cocke, Jr., Exists (at right)
Erle Cocke Jr., 78, War Hero Who Led American Legion
By ERIC PACE
Published: April 26, 2000
Erle Cocke Jr., a decorated World War II soldier who was the national commander of the American Legion in 1950 and 1951, died on Sunday at his home in Chevy Chase, Md. He was 78. The cause was cancer.
Mr. Cocke, at age 29, became the youngest person to command the American Legion, the country’s largest veterans’
organization. A native of Dawson, Ga., Mr. Cocke graduated from the University of Georgia in 1942 and was commissioned a second lieutenant in the Army infantry. He worked his way through the ranks, becoming a rifle company commander, a battalion executive officer and then a battalion commander. He was wounded three times, was captured by the Germans and escaped three times. He narrowly escaped being executed by the Waffen SS after he was captured the third time, with his unit, in 1945.
Mr. Cocke and several others had escaped but were recaptured by SS troops. They were ordered executed, and he was left for dead among a group of American soldiers shot in a German village by a firing squad. Hours later, a villager, Lukas Walters, found him and hid him in a barn. A farmer, Karl Bart, tended his wounds until he was rescued. Mr. Cocke would spent 14 months in 27 hospitals, 11 in the United States. He underwent 17 major operations.
His former division commander, Maj. Gen. Anthony C. McAuliffe, said later that Mr. Cocke had ‘’displayed courage of the highest degree, enthusiasm and excellent judgment.’’ He left the service as a major after receiving the Silver Star, the Purple Heart with three clusters, the Bronze Star and the French Croix de Guerre. In 1999 he said: ‘’I would have apologized the rest of my life if I had not been in World War II. I owed my government that much. That was my opportunity to contribute.’’
After the war, he earned a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard University. He was a farmer and railroad executive when he was elected commander of the Legion. He was outspoken in the post, urging more than once that the Soviet Union be expelled from the United Nations. Mr. Cocke headed a Legion drive to oust Secretary of State Dean Acheson and a campaign to have all members of the Communist Party in the United States arrested and tried for treason. He also called for an end to the nation’s foreign economic aid program. In 1951, when President Harry S. Truman relieved Gen. Douglas MacArthur of command in Korea and the Far East, Mr. Cocke came out in support of the general’s proposal to use Chiang Kai-shek’s troops in Taiwan to open a second front against the Chinese Communists on the mainland. Mr. Cocke also backed MacArthur’s demand for the authority to bomb Chinese bases in Manchuria.
Later that day Truman canceled a meeting with Mr. Cocke. Some days later, Mr. Cocke, in a speech at a Legion convention in Florida, contended that soldiers, not ‘’swivel-chair politicians or striped-pants diplomats’’ should make the United States’ war decisions.Nonetheless, Truman would later appoint Mr. Cocke to be a consultant for the Defense Department. President Dwight D. Eisenhower named Mr. Cocke an alternate representative to a session of the United Nations General Assembly. He also held a World Bank post in the Kennedy and Johnson administrations and was a friend of President Jimmy Carter. Mr. Cocke was active in Democratic politics, was a brigadier general in the Georgia National Guard and was president of the lobbying firm Cocke & Phillips.
He is survived by his wife, Madelyn; three daughters, Elise C. Cocke, Jennifer C. Carpenter and Carolyn C. Whitsett;
six grandsons; and a sister, Alice C. Cofield. Photo: Erle Cocke Jr. (Associated Press, 1950)

The Vreeland Prison Memo At Left
Mike Vreeland is referenced in the text of this book. He was jailed in Canada prior to 911 and had warned both the jailers and his attorney regarding the planned attacks on 911.
WILDCARD: Down the rabbit hole
with the man who says he tried to
warn the world about 9/11
A GNN Special Report
By Sander Hicks
[Reprinted as originally published by the Guerilla News Network Sept. 26, 2002.http://www.guerrillanews.com/intelligence/doc749.html]
Part One: A White Knight?
Delmart “Mike” Vreeland wants to meet me in the parking lot of the Loblaw grocery store on Lake Shore Drive in Toronto. I arrive as a silver Lincoln circles the parking garage. I park and the car silently glides to me. The passenger
door opens. Vreeland is sitting in back, hair cropped short into a Caesar cut, wearing a tight black ribbed t-shirt and black parachute pants. He looks like Eminem. He leans forward and says, “Lock your car. Get in.”
As a black storm builds out in the harbor, we head to a big tourist restaurant on the waterfront called “Docks.” Vreeland buys us two beers each, we drink and talk. He wonders aloud if anyone is tailing us. Suddenly everyone around me is middle-aged, dressed inconspicuously and wearing sunglasses. The storm breaks and we run inside. The middle-aged men follow us in, still wearing their sunglasses.
That night the limo takes me, Vreeland, Vreeland’s son, and the son’s best friend up north to a resort lodge. Vreeland
feels safer there. He says he’s buying a condo for $600,000, in one lump sum to be wired over. From where? He won’t say. Does it have to do with his work with former U.S. Treasury operatives, people who claim to be attempting
to recover over $27.6 trillion lost in 1993 when a secret Israeli/Palestinian peace deal went awry? (Yes, that’s right, $27.6 trillion) Perhaps . . . or perhaps it’s just another Vreelandism: a wild story that dissolves in the waters of scrutiny.
Vreeland and his supporters claim that there are falsifications in the Navy’s file on him. Perhaps anticipating this, on August 21, 2001, after his note was sealed and in the hands of his jailers, Vreeland called the U.S. Navy office
of Personnel Service Detachment in Norfolk, Virginia. He spoke with Petty Officer Terry Gilford. Through a 3-way connection with his attorneys, he was able to make an audio recording and transcript of this conversation. This tape has been copied and submitted to court as an exhibit.
The Petty Officer cheerfully helped Vreeland confirm that the records did show him joining the Navy in 1985, to be kicked out five months later in 1986. How do you explain the records that showed Vreeland’s rank as “Lieutenant,”
a rank that usually takes years to obtain? Petty Officer Gilford admitted that something smelled funny. Gilford suggested that perhaps Vreeland was in a “low-key type field” or got his rank through unusual means. “You’re a fishy guy, sir,” said Gilford, who agreed with Vreeland several times throughout the conversation that the records appeared to have been tampered with. When Vreeland confirmed Gilford’s name, Gilford said, perhaps
half joking, “I don’t know if I wanna tell you my name now.”
Who is Mike Vreeland and how is he connected to 911?

You are duly warned
The relentless approach of global feudalism:
“In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had
another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of
financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of
each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be
controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting
in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and
conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International
Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by
the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.”
~ Prof. Carroll Quigley (Tragedy & Hope)
“The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission – founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller – and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens.”
. Johannes B. Koeppl, Ph.D., former German defense ministry official
and advisor to former NATO Secretary General Manfred Werner (2001)
“The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost
continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.”
~ Zbigniew Brzezinski.
David Guyatt On PROJECT HAMMER
Covert Finance, the Parallel Economy & Elite Actions
by David Guyatt
Project Hammer is all about money. Stupendous great gobs of money. So much money, in fact, that it will challenge
whatever reality you thought you had about the over-world of banking, finance and economics.
It is also about the nether world of international banking and finance, a world that is said not to exist in reality. But exist it does. More often than not this never-never-land of international banking is concealed from public view by the judicious use of two sets of books. It is also eclipsed from interested investigators by a never-ending series of real frauds that result in arrest and imprisonment of numerous scam artists. This creates the clever illusion that the only thing going on are artful scams designed to fleece the unwary.
Such swindles fall under the general category of “High Yield Investment Programmes,” “Front End Fee” frauds and “Prime Bank Note” schemes. Numerous law enforcement cases such as these, when twinned with dire “beware”
warnings published on FBI, US Treasury and other websites, easily lead one to conclude that there are no such things as “real” trading programmes. And the powers that be don’t at all object to this conclusion being reached. It is the old case of hiding trees in a forest.
A key point to keep to the fore in what follows is that trading programmes operate “off-ledger.” That is to say the banks and central banks that operate them run two sets of books – one set for public scrutiny and another set for private viewing only. Another fact to bear in mind is that authorised programmes generate quite spectacular profits for very little, in fact, miniscule risk, and those that are invited to participate as funders, accumulate capital at a shockingly rapid rate. One reason, perhaps, why the wealthy get altogether wealthier as the poor sink ever lower into the mire of poverty.
The financial, banking and economic shadow-world in which Project Hammer lived, breathed and manufactured money “out of thin air” is the dirty little secret of the western economy. It is a form of money creation that is effectively
unchallenged by any form of oversight or accountability as we understand it. “Hammer” and numerous other transactions like it are based on what are known as “Collateral Trading Programmes” – although many other descriptive names and terms are also used. 
The reason for such programmes is to create vast pools of ready money that are earmarked for use in sanctioned (authorised) operations and projects. On the plus side, many beneficial projects throughout the world get funded as a result of programme trading. On the negative side, there are more shadowy projects. Included in the latter category are certain black operations.
The amalgamated pool of funds created and now held in dormant and orphaned bank accounts run to trillions of dollars, according to insiders. At the low end of estimates there is believed to be enough to pay off the US national debt plus some change. At the higher end, estimates range up to hundreds of trillions of dollars. I have been repeatedly told, almost matter-of-factly, that the higher estimates are closer to the truth. I simply don’t know how big the sums amount to but I can document $12 trillion. This sum is revealed in the late Baron Krupp papers that form part of the exhibits of companion volume to this dossier, THE SECRET GOLD TREATY (http://www.deepblacklies.co.uk).
Many different sources say that programmes are also used to launder money by spinning it through a programme cycle until it is pristine clean. Drugs, guns and the usual array of dirty money transactions are said to feature.
Page 302 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 303 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Since US dollars are the corner-stone of all programme activity, Uncle Sam naturally gets a bite of the action. A percentage of the proceeds are collected via private tax treaties negotiated with off-shore entities. These treaties also help to shield the reality of these programmes from public awareness. There are unsubstantiated rumours that some of the tax take occasionally gets “diverted” for altogether private purposes. It is an allegation that is impossible to stand up, however.
London and Zurich are key centres for programme activity although transactions are usually booked through off-shore entities. London & Zurich are also gold centres and more than one credible source confirms that black gold form an important part of programme trading activity. There are also good reasons to suppose that part of Uncle Sam’s share of trading profits are credited to the Exchange Stabilisation Fund. Here it is pooled with other funds and used to shore-up the American economy by – amongst other manoeuvres – manipulating the gold price to keep it below a pre-determined price. Trading programmes are the preserve of many governments, their treasury departments
and the top international banks which by very nature have the necessary mechanisms in place to enable trading to take place efficiently and secretly. Banks from G7 nations dominate. It follows therefore, that a number of problems occur as a consequence of the multi-jurisdictional nature of supervision, and although safeguards are in place to ensure that “clean” money is fed into the system, this doesn’t always happen. Funds of suspect origin do enter the system and are made pristine clean by this form of paper alchemy.
Large sums of “black” gold, cash or other forms of convertible assets are used as “collateral” to initiate trading programmes. There are also certain classes of government issued Treasury Notes and Bonds that are privately lodged into major western banks. These “treasuries” are never meant to see the light of day but are, in turn, used by major banks to back the issuance of their own bank debentures “off-ledger” in substantially leveraged amounts that can run into tens of trillions of dollars – or their foreign currency equivalents. In turn, this bank “paper” is traded in pre-arranged “buy/sell” transactions at steep discounts (cents on the dollar) of the face value of the issued
bank debentures. The trading of the paper between banks – using proxies – is arranged and coordinated so that the traded obligations effectively “wash out” or are otherwise cancelled, although other scenarios exist where issued paper is purchased at a fair market value and held to maturity. In the past trading was paper based but today everything is electronic “screen-based” and consequently, the credits traded have a life of milliseconds.
The difference between the buy and sell price – usually known as the “spread” (in the case of Hammer this was said to be many percentage points) generates a “fallout” – a term that implies profit. In other transactions, most notably “Jacobe,” the spread was represented to be at least 10% on a planned face value issuance of US$27.5 trillion according to documents I have seen. This would have created a fallout of US$2.75 trillion. However, for reasons yet unknown to this writer it seems that the Jacobe programme, privately hailed as the largest programme “ever put together” was, for reasons that are still inexplicable, only two thirds completed.
Less grand but just as interesting in other respects was the fallout from Project Hammer that is said to have totalled
over US$220 billion. In fact, the precise sum is US$ 223,104,000,008.03. 
THE NUGAN HAND BANK CONNECTION
One of the central characters associated with Project Hammer was Brigadier General Erle Cocke. Back in 1966 along with his sleeping partner General Eugene Phillips, Erle Cocke established the Washington based consultancy
firm Cocke & Phillips International. This was at the height of the Vietnam war and just a few months after cold warrior Paul H Nitze, issued the directive authorising the establishment of the US Navy’s clandestine intelligence
collection programme – more commonly known as Task Force 157.
TF 157 would later feature in the Nugan Hand Bank affair exposed by Wall Street Journal investigative reporter Jonathan Kwitny, in his book THE CRIMES OF PATRIOTS. Task Force157 came to an end on the instruction of Admiral Bobby Ray Inman once he discovered the full involvement of ”rogue” CIA agent Edwin Wilson in the Task Force. Wilson was responsible for so much intrigue and illegality that one could shake a stick at it. He was eventually arrested, tried and imprisoned where he remains to this day fighting for release. Many now believe that he was working on orders from above but in a deniable role and was cynically sacrificed to save other more prominent players.
During his investigation, Jonathan Kwitny learned that General Erle Cocke ran Nugan Hand Bank’s Washington office. Cocke’s partner, General Philipps denied this saying they had merely rented office space to Nugan Hand Inc’s., Hawaii President, General Edward Black – a former OSS, CIA and senior military officer. This proved to be untrue however. Kwitny learned that papers filed with the U S Treasury listed General Cocke as the “person in charge” of Nugan Hand’s Washington office. Cocke claimed that someone else must have filed these papers without his knowledge or consent.
In April 2000, Cocke gave a deposition running to 67 pages concerning his knowledge and involvement in Project Hammer. Ten days later he died from Pancreatic cancer. His explosive deposition reveals him as a very significant
and highly connected player in a world few of us are familiar with
Cocke fought in three wars: WWII, Korea and Vietnam. During WWII he was an artillery officer and a division staff officer and was a POW under the Germans. He worked for General MacArthur during the Korean war and for General Westmoreland in the Vietnam war. Highly decorated for his service he was awarded a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and cluster, a Purple Heart with three clusters, a Croix de Guerre plus a Chevalier Legion of Honour (France) and a Medal of Honour from the Philippines. He was the youngest National Commander of the American
Legion and prior to his death also became the oldest National Commander. In addition he was distinguished by the Red Cross with the medal Cruz Roja and was made an Honourable Comrade of the Nationalist Chinese Air Force. He was a Shriner Mason of many years standing (where he held a semi-official voluntary position for that organisation) and was a Grand Commander of the Knights of Malta – the secretive Vatican Order that boasts numerous members who serve – or are closely affiliated with – western intelligence and military services. Intriguingly,
he claimed to have been the first Protestant “in 1200 years to be so honoured.”
In 1959 and again in 1960 he was a member of the U. S. delegation to the General Assembly of the United Nations
holding the rank (and pay grade) of Ambassador. After that he was the first full time U. S. alternate Executive
Director of the World Bank, a position he held for four years from 1961-4. Pressed about this in more detail Cocke responded saying: At that time I owned 28 percent of the stock and, of course, I had all kinds of people in the Treasury tell me what to do. Don’t get me wrong, I made all the decisions. But I was the executor, I was the delivery.
He also confirmed that he had worked for every US President:
…from Truman to date. At some stage of the game I worked for all of them. I have to admit that some of them were very minor chores and others were important.
In addition to his many abilities and accomplishments listed above Erle Cocke was above all other things a banker, a profession that ran in the family. His great grandfather put a bank “together in 1867” which was then the only bank in Georgia. His grandfather founded a bank in about 1890 and his father was President of Fulton National Bank (which became Bank of America) and was, at one time, the President of the American Bankers Association and Chairman of the FDIC.
Asked about his own knowledge of banking Cocke said he had taken all the normal banking courses and added:
I understand banking. I can teach banking – you understand what I am saying – at the college level.
This banking expertise was at the core of his firm, Cocke & Phillips International which began life as a:
Page 304 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 305 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
…normal American firm, lobbying firm here in Washington, and we grew into banking particularly. The UN contacts, and the World Bank contacts, sometimes they help those people for 10 years.
In a similar vein he undertook all sorts of “chores” for some of the government intelligence agencies. He explained
this as follows:
One thing is if they trusted you, they practically came in and said what do I do? I mean, you didn’t argue with them. You sort of proceeded with the program and gave them a few choices, of course. But [they] practically always followed what we did. I was administrator, arbitrator. I was [the] moderator, bringing people together.
Asked if that experience “would be true in the financial and banking world in particular?” Cocke replied:
“Oh, yes. I have been able to close things that other people can’t close.”
As we shall see, Cocke’s ability to “close” things other people could not close did not extend to Project Hammer, a financial operation that, according to Cocke, deeply involved Citibank and its Chairman, John Reed. Cocke said he could get to see any President without any trouble, but complained that he could not get to meet John Reed.
Having briefly examined General Cocke’s background and Vitae, let’s now return to that stupendous sum of “black” money mentioned earlier. For purposes of clarity this amount was referenced in Erle Cocke’s deposition. If, as we have said, this amount was stealthily “magicked” into being as a result of an exotic form of financial smoke and mirrors the question is where did it go? According to Cocke this sum was lodged in:
…30 some odd accounts together.
Asked where these accounts were located, Cocke responded saying:
In almost one solid block at Citibank.
General Cocke’s questioner, a Washington attorney then asked: ”Would they have been in control of Mr. Reed” – meaning former Citibank CEO and Chairman John Reed. Cocke responded as follows:
A Probably not all because there were so many different participants involved, and in different locations, countries, that I would say no, he did not have complete control, but everybody recognized it wouldn’t be settled until it got to him.”
Q And these were, you say, accounts for various people around the world?
Q Produced as a result of what?
A Well, most of them figured that greed in particular was mighty high. And, if they put up this amount of money, then I am going to get this kind of money coming back. That’s the way practically all of it was. I hate to use the word sole, but present might be a better word.
Q Were these accounts for the benefit of people who had engaged in some kind of trading program?
A They were all to get in the trading program. I haven’t found anybody that didn’t go in wanting to increase their income and their greed in the highest bracket if they could possibly put up money.
Q What I am understanding from you is that whatever these individuals, corporate entities, or even government,
they believed apparently by putting these funds with Citibank as part of this effort, they would then receive later down the road a pay off?
A That is correct.
Q As a result of Citibank’s management of these funds, is that fair to say?
A Yes, basically the whole trading bloc in a nutshell.
During the course of his deposition, General Cocke was asked if he knew who “created” Hammer “to begin with…?” He admitted that he didn’t know and was even reluctant to make a guess but added that whoever set it in motion “had to have been somebody at a pretty high level.” He then made the interesting observation that whoever
it was who had authorised “the original structure” that it had “obviously got way out of proportion as time went by.” The implication was that some of the money – the fallout – got diverted from its original intention.
More than a few of those involved in Project Hammer, at various levels, have told me that they believe some of the pool of money created by the Hammer project was “diverted” and used to rescue many of the worlds major banks who by the very end of the 1980’s faced insolvency following reckless lending policies throughout the late Seventies and early-middle Eighties. it is certainly true that at that time many major banks like Citibank, HSBC, Chase, BoNY and others stood teetering on the very brink of disaster.
Another view is one that has been expressed by Daniel Hughes, of Hughes Oil Company, a Florida based Corporation.
Hughes had been heavily involved in finding collateral to place in a number of trading programs over several years. This has cost him tens of thousands of dollars since most of these were illegitimate rather than genuine. It is a fate that waits for untold thousands of unsuspecting investors who step into this shadowy realm unprepared.
Even so it seems that Hughes did play a part in attempting to place collateral in Project Hammer. He believes that the funds diverted from Project Hammer ended up in a CIA controlled Swiss bank account in the name of late Howard Hughes. Based on years of investigation, Hughes believes that Project Hammer involved the trading of US$13.6 trillion in debentures resulting in a “fallout” of about US$1.1 trillion which was stashed in the Howard Hughes account in Credit Suisse. Whilst there is no hard corroboration in support of this claim it remains an intriguing
possibility. More so for in his deposition, General Cocke indicated that black money generated by trading programmes might be hidden in dormant accounts, and a Howard Hughes account set up thirty years ago would clearly fall into that category.
According to Erle Cocke plus others I have spoken with, Project Hammer began life as an authorised but secretive
trading programme aimed at repatriating dollar assets that dated back several decades. Cocke confirms this when asked:
Q — what the overall objectives of Project Hammer were?
A Well, it was mainly to bring monies back to the United States from all types of activities, both legitimately and illegitimately. Not that they were in the smuggling business per se, but they were all in the arms business, they were all retracing dollars of one description or another that had accumulated all through the forties and fifties really. And that probably is as broad a definition as I can give you. And all kinds of nationalities were involved, all kinds of people were involved…”
Page 306 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 307 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Cocke was then asked who would have been behind the Hammer project. Would it, the questioner asked, have involved:
Q … various agencies of the U. S. Government?
A Yes. Obviously, the CIA, the FBI, the National Security Agencies of all types, Pentagon in the broadest sense of it and as such, and the Treasury, Federal Reserve. Nobody got out of the act, everybody wanted to get in the act.
CITIBANK ARE THE “CHEESE”
Cocke was then asked who the “dominant participant” was in “terms of running this project, this vast project?” The general is in no doubt about his reply when he says that, based on his own investigation, it was: “Citibank of New York, in both their Athens, Greece office and in their New York City office.” He also acknowledged that Hammer was part of “an ongoing long term kind of project.”
Cocke went on to reveal that Citibank were “…going to be the trustees. They were going to be running the program.
They were going to be the disbursing agency. They were the cheese.”
Asked to identify which principal officer in Citibank handled Project Hammer, Cocke responded that “from all records, communications and contacts, John Reed was Vice President, but he was the lone coordinator, for a better
Reed, who was Citibank’s President and Chairman during this period has formally denied his involvement in Project
Hammer. In a deposition sworn in December 2000, Reed states that he has “no recognition or knowledge of anything purportedly known as project Hammer.” Nor did he have “any recognition or knowledge” of any person named Erle Cocke. His deposition goes on to list a number of other items, people and allegations that he also had “no recognition or knowledge” about.
For their part, Citibank in a letter dated December 12th 2000 state that they “never issued commercial instruments on the basis of its possession of quantities of gold made available to it by agencies of the U.S. Government and the Federal Reserve in order to ensure the solvency of Citibank in the 80’s and other bullion banks.”
This denial, although emphatic, is interesting. Research shows that gold recovered by the forerunner to the CIA, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was deposited in Citibank (and many other banks, too) not in the name of the OSS or CIA but in the name of one of their operatives, Severino Garcia Santa Romana.
On his death in 1974, some – but not all – of Romana’s “assets” appear to have been illegally acquired by former Philippines President, Ferdinand Marcos, who was at one time Santa Romana’s attorney. According to Santa Romana’s widow, her husband gave Marcos a limited Power of Attorney for use solely in the Philippines, since he travelled abroad regularly. Marcos, somehow, seems to have made use of this to gain control over Santa Romana’s gold and other assets.
It also appears likely, based on documents in this writer’s possession that considerable quantities of gold once held by Santa Romana were later placed under the control of former CIA covert operator, Major General Edward Lansdale. These assets were, however, lodged with the Union Bank of Switzerland. Again it is worthy of note that they were placed in Ed Lansdale’s name not in the name of a U S Government Agency. These assets are very clearly off the books.
Large quantities of gold held by Citibank remained in the account names of Severino Garcia Sta. Romana and Jose Antonio Diaz De La Paz (the latter being a well -known a.k.a for Santa Romana) under reference codes “Fanerst
King Fisher” and “Burgst Harbour King” respectively.  These have been the subject of a legal wrangle between Santa Romana’s heirs and Citibank’s John Reed.
The fact that the gold held by Citibank and others may not have been in the name of the Central Intelligence Agency or the Federal Reserve but rather was in Santa Romana’s name may have been all Citibank needed to wriggle out of a poorly crafted question.
THE ILLUMINATI ANGLE
The gold “connection” remains unclear. However, there is reason to suppose that the dollar “assets” that date back to the 1940’s and 1950’s as earlier discussed by General Erle Cocke may relate in part, to vast quantities of gold looted during WWII by the Japanese plunder teams known as the Golden Lily and also by the Nazi’s in Europe.
That substantial amounts of gold bullion were ransacked and then hidden throughout the Philippines prior to wars end is now undeniable. This, however, was “black” gold, meaning it did not appear on official statistics or in treasury department lists. Santa Romana was an OSS officer operating in the Philippines during the war and learned where the Japanese had buried plundered gold and other valuables.
But there are other aspects to the Santa Romana gold story that are only now coming to the surface. They reveal a shocking secret that, if true, could shake the foundations of our belief and change the way in which we view the world we live in.
According to Santa Romana’s widow, Luz, her husband told her that he was a member of the Illuminati – a very secretive elite group that dates back to 1776 when it was founded by Adam Weishaupt at the University of Ingolstadt,
Germany. According to those who have researched it, the purpose of the Illuminati was to set in motion, in secret, a New World Order of world revolution.
This, however, does not fully tally with what Santa Romana told his wife about them. According to Luz the purpose
of the Illuminati was based on the knowledge that the royal families of Europe were aware that they were losing political and effective control of their nations. But it was the possible loss of control over the wealth of their kingdoms that bothered them most. Consequently they founded the “Illuminati” and set in motion long-term plans aimed at secretly taking control of world finances, especially gold and other precious metals.
In time the royal families who sat at the centre of the Illuminati movement were forced to expand and take into membership political and business leaders. At some point in the early twentieth century two fifty year plans were set in motion aimed at cornering the worlds precious metal reserves.
The foregoing is the account given to Luz by her husband Santa Romana. How true it is remains to be seen and it is not hard to view it as disinformation told by Santa Romana to his wife to conceal his real motives – whatever they may have been.
More intriguing still is Luz’s account that her late husband was the one time “head” of the Trilateral Commission
– an elite group that is known to have tentacles deeply embedded in the Marcos gold story of later years. Again, there is no corroborating evidence and the fact that the Trilateral Commission was founded only in 1973 – whereas Santa Romana died in 1974 – suggests this is unlikely.
However, it is more than a little curious that whilst the great bulk of gold that eventually (and undoubtedly) came to be controlled by Santa Romana resulted from plunder during WWII, he did have substantial gold deposits dating
back further than that.
Page 308 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 309 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
Papers relating to the “estate” of Santa Romana purport to show a gold account at the Union Bank of Switzerland, Zurich, containing 8,000 metric tonnes that was valued at US$10 billion. The account dates back to 1920. Such a quantity of gold dating from that period represents a massive holding far surpassing that held today by the worlds leading central banks.
It is also at least interesting that, again according to the account of his wife, Santa Romana was, as a young boy, adopted by his great uncle in Hawaii who was married to the last Hawaiian princess. The couple had remained childless throughout their marriage leading to the decision to adopt the young Santa Romana. According to Luz, it was this “royal” connection that gave Santa Romana entrée into the Illuminati said to have once been dominated by royal families.
Interestingly, during the course of my on-going investigation into Project Hammer, a number of others involved in this program I have spoken with have told me, quite independently of the Santa Romana story, that the Hammer program – and numerous other collateral trading programs associated with it – have enormously powerful “gold trusts” of royal origin sitting behind them.
Perhaps the Hammer program was to generate enough money to buy substantial quantities of black gold stashed in the Philippines to ensure it is kept out of circulation – thus protecting the gold price to some degree? Perhaps it had more to do with the secret acquisition of vast amounts of this black gold in line with what Santa Romana told his wife? Perhaps the assets in question were not just gold but included pre-war US Treasury obligations (Bonds and Notes) that are now coming to light in the Philippines but which are said by US authorities to be fraudulent. What ever is the case, it is certain that substantial quantities of “black” gold are used to underpin (collateralise) certain trading programs and the funds thus generated are earmarked for use in other secretive operations?
This whole subject remains an ongoing investigation. The deeper I dig the murkier it becomes. Stories of warehouses
full of banknotes waiting to be laundered by a trading programme so that they can re-enter the financial system as clean as a whistle are commonplace. Foreign exchange transactions involving billions of dollars in equivalent currency and which trade at huge discounts – unknown in the official marketplace – are also not uncommon.
It is also a fact that many of those involved in trading programmes are members of government intelligence and security organisations.
EXECUTIVE OUTCOMES, SANDLINE, AND THE STASI
Another individual who has played a considerable role in Project Hammer is South African, Rolf van Rooyen, who operated a number of business entities including one called “Oceantech” and another called “Eastech International
Bank.” At one time van Rooyen worked for South African intelligence and is also believed to have been CIA at the time Project Hammer was in process.
Of significance is the fact that General Cocke and van Rooyen knew each other, although Cocke says he only spoke to him on the phone but never “shook hands with him.” During a police interview in Germany in 1995, van Rooyen when questioned about Project Hammer responded:
If you are referring to Operation Hamer (sic) it is an extremely large, very delicate operation in co-operation with the authorities of various countries in which Oceantech is involved.
Van Rooyen then proceeds to identify: “America, England, Germany, France, Italy…” as being involved. He also told German police that from the very first day he began investigating Project Hammer that
We realised that it was a direct state matter and that the U.S.A., the CIA and several other groups in the secret service were involved, as well as very, very high-coupled people in the American Government.
The latter are rumoured to include George H. W. Bush, James Baker III. Former Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen
and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.
During his deposition Erle Cocke was asked if he considered van Rooyen’s foregoing statement to be accurate. Cocke replied saying “He is not too far off. I am sure he flavoured it up a little bit, yes.”
Working alongside van Rooyen was South African intelligence operative Riaan Stander. Both Stander and van Rooyen were board members of the “Eastcorp Syndicate” which boasted almost two dozen other companies in its stable.  Included were Intercol Pty, Ltd., Cavo Shipping – which conducted intelligence gathering missions for governments – and Bridge S. A. The latter was registered in Monrovia, Liberia.
According to Peter Goslar, once a close friend of Riaan Stander, other board members of Bridge S. A., were Colonel
Tim Spicer and Mick Ranger “of Sandline fame.” In a letter written to a Washington law firm involved in a lawsuit involving Project Hammer, Goslar fingers Bridge S A – and hence van Rooyen and Riaan Stander – as “part of the “Executive Outcomes operation.”
But there is more. During several daylong meetings I had with Peter Goslar in late June 2001, he handed me hundreds of pages of documents he had retrieved from Riaan Stander’s private papers. These included documents showing a Mexican entity called Ro-Mar Pharmaceuticals that van Rooyan told German police was the “money power” behind Eastech International Bank. The money Ro-Mar Pharmaceutical claimed to control was represented
by over US$100 billion in gold. Other papers clearly show van Rooyen and Stander engaged in Collateral Trading Programmes involving Latin American Governments, most notably Argentina – once the preferred bold-hole of notorious Nazi’s like Martin Bormann.
Another document from the batch I received from Peter Goslar was a list of companies listed under the heading “United Kingdom Network” and identified this “network” as being part of “The Palace Group.” An interesting description, I think. In any event, listed under this “group” were twenty-four business entities including Sandline International, Diamond Works, Branch Mining Ltd and Bridge International. The list also included Defence Systems
Ltd as a part of The Palace Group and identified it as a division of Vickers – Britain’s oldest and most distinguished
armaments manufacturer and which resides at the very centre of the United Kingdom’s Establishment.
During one of our meetings, Peter Goslar told me he was a personal acquaintance (perhaps even a friend) of former East German spy-master, Marcus Wolf, who headed the East German security apparatus known as the Stasi. Peter also claimed to know several former Stasi operatives. He also spoke German fluently in addition to Afrikaans and his native English tongue.
I later was told that a Peter Goslar was briefly mentioned in the autobiography written by Marcus Wolf entitled MAN WITHOUT A FACE. Discussing the fall from grace of West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt in 1977, following the discovery that his personal secretary, Dagmar Kahlig-Scheffler was a spy working for the Stasi. Wolf explains that Chancellor Schmidt’s spy-cum-secretary was caught when her Stasi control officer, Peter Goslar
came under suspicion by West German counterintelligence.
I asked Peter if he was the same Peter Goslar identified by his “friend” Marcus Wolf. He denied that it was him. Non-the-less, he told me that Rolf van Rooyen was still living in Germany and was under the protection of two former Stasi agents. And we do know that the Stasi worked closely and in the shadows with South African intelligence
on a variety of projects, mostly weapon related. Curious.

The “Palace group” meanwhile, contains all the guile and charm of a privatised off-the-books appendage of Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS). On the other side of the Atlantic, General Cocke and his firm Cocke & Phillips International has many similarities as its foregoing British cousin and probably was (and is – the firm remains
active) one of the CIA’s private off-the-books companies. This conclusion is not only drawn from Cocke’s affiliation with the known CIA entity, Nugan Hand Bank, but another CIA front company called Associated Traders
ATC, as it is known, came into brief prominence some years ago following a series of articles written by syndicated
columnist, Jack Anderson naming Associated Traders as an a gun running, money laundering “off-the-books” CIA front. Then in 1988 a US$4 million lawsuit was filed that involved Associated Traders. By 1990, Director of the CIA, William Webster, issued an Affidavit calling for a sweeping gag order by asserting that it was a matter of national security. Of interest is the fact that more than one source has told me that Associated Traders Corporation was General Cocke.
The foregoing connections could easily be typified as part of the Anglo-American-African covert intelligence relationship that continues to conceal many sins. There is reason to suppose that part of funds derived from the Project Hammer financial trading programme went to fund certain military and intelligence operations in South African. These are thought to have included financing of the so called “Hammer Units” that are alleged to have engaged in brutal beatings and assassinations throughout South Africa prior to the collapse of the Apartheid regime. It is also believed that Hammer funds were used to finance the purchase of arms given to the Inkatha Freedom Party that was engaged in widespread acts of bloody violence during 1992 and 1993 as discussed in the 1994 Report of the Goldstone Commission of Inquiry that named Eastech, VAN Rooyen and Stander.
Another aspect of Project Hammer may have involved the desire to plunder South Africa of much of its available mineral wealth prior to the country coming under control of the ANC in 1994. In the hard-hitting and suppressed book GLITTER & GREED written by Australian investigative reporter, Janine Roberts, the Oppenheimer family and De Beers arranged that a:
fabulous multi-billion Rand stockpile of the finest gems was shipped out prior to the 1994 elections and that the mines producing the best gems were put into overdrive in both South Africa and Namibia so that as many as possible
of the better gems were extracted as fast as possible. 
I have also been told that large quantities of South African gold were also surreptitiously shipped out of South Africa at around this time – presumably for similar reasons. It is also of interest to note that mounting evidence points to the conclusion that since 1995 the price of gold has been kept purposely low as a result of a conspiracy engineered by the US Treasury department in collaboration with leading international banks. The result has been that the cost of extracting gold for many South African gold mines is no longer cost effective.
Could some of this alleged “missing” South African gold be related to a transaction that van Rooyen and Stander entered into in 1991? This involved Eastech International Bank agreeing to purchase 5,000 metric tonnes of gold at a 4% discount from the prevailing Second London fix – at a cost of about US$50 billion. This gold was held in the free zone area beneath Zurich’s Kloten airport. The contract, which was to be governed by the “canton-laws of Zurich” runs to six pages and each page bears the official stamp of the Swiss police authorising and validating the transaction.
It remains unclear if van Rooyen and Stander were acting on their own behalf or were fronting for someone else in this transaction. Van Rooyen, at least, has been fingered as a CIA asset in addition to his South African intelligence
affiliations. Might they have been operating as a deniable cut out” for the US Treasury Department who wished to get delivery of this gold?
Perhaps the Chinese Government was party to the transaction instead. Eastech International Bank was, after all, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sino-Eastech, an entity which van Rooyen told German police investigators was “established in China” and which “operates from Xin Xong and was originally established by the General Staff of the 7th military power in China.” In operating their bank, Van Rooyen and Stander liased with a Chinese Army General who van Rooyen declined to name saying he wasn’t “sure what his name is.” His German police interrogator,
displaying a well honed sense of official disinterest in such diplomatic incongruities, rapidly moved on to other issues.
By 1995 Eastech International Bank had begun to hit the radar screen of regulatory authorities around the world that viewed it with suspicion. But by then it seems probable that much of Project Hammer’s South African objectives
had been fulfilled. Fearing the worse, Rolf van Rooyen left South Africa and travelled to Germany. And according to his one time friend, Peter Goslar, that is where he still lives albeit protected by former members of East Germany’s Stasi spy-network.
It remains to be seen whether the sanctions busting objective of the South African end of Project Hammer was a simple case of certain Elites making sure they got all the mineral wealth they needed from South Africa before turning the country over to the ANC and Nelson Mandela in 1994. What is known is that the price of gold entered a new round of price manipulation beginning in 1995 which continues to this day.
Over the last two years, the Gold Anti Trust Action Group (GATA) have demonstrated that the manipulation of gold price has been orchestrated by the US Federal Reserve working in collusion with leading Wall Street and international banks. Many of those banks quoted by GATA as being party to the price manipulation conspiracy – for that is what it amounts to – are also major players in Trading Programmes.
In any event, the depressed price of gold has made many South African mines uneconomic to operate and one cannot help but ask if this was by design? Southern hemisphere nations may sit on much of mineral wealth of the planet but the northern hemisphere industrialised nations appear intent to continue to control and exploit it.
THE FRENCH CONNECTION – AGAIN
Project Hammer and Jacobe have the appearance of being “umbrella” operations geared, in the narrow sense at least, to generating funds for particular authorised projects. Once the proper authorisation has been issued programmes
such as these seem to broaden in scope and greater effort goes towards creating deniable slush funds for use in any number of ways as the occasion demands. When you think about it, this makes considerable sense for those who engage in the game of black operations and political manipulation.
In addition to its authorisation to repatriate dollars dating back to the 1940’s and 1950’s, as explained by General Cocke, could Project Hammer have had other purposes? Could it, for example, have been used to finance another
project, one that had specific East German connotations and which might explain the Stasi connection more fully?
It is certainly interesting that on the 6th February 1989, the French Central Bank, the Banque de France, issued an International Certificate of Deposit for 620,000 kilograms of 99.99% pure gold. At that time, 620 metric tonnes of gold had a market value of about US$7 billion. A king’s ransom.
The certificate is almost identical to dozens I have on file and which I have written about and also reproduced in my book, THE SECRET GOLD TREATY. As I explain there, certificates of this nature invariably contain spelling
mistakes or other obvious typographical flaws which can be used to deny the validity of the certificate in the event it ever reaches public attention.
Page 312 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 313 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
This was a technique developed by Britain’s secretive Special Operations Executive (SOE) in WWII. SOE agents parachuted into France and elsewhere in occupied Europe, were taught to insert pre-arranged spelling errors on messages they sent by radio in the event they were captured by the Nazi’s. This would immediately alert SOE that the agent was in custody and that German Counter-intelligence wished to use the agent to feed false information back to HQ.
In any event, the Banque de France certificate mentioned above was in the name of Erich Honecker, the then East German Head of State (see exhibits). Six months later, in a trumpet of media coverage, Honecker was ousted from power. A month after that, the Berlin Wall – the very symbol of Communism throughout the world – was opened. The reopening was abruptly followed by its complete demolition at the hands of a euphoric public. Germany,
which had been divided for over thirty years was, at least, reunified.
By many accounts, Project Hammer began trading in November 1989, but was being set up a lot earlier than that. Few of those involved in the transaction on the peripherary know for certain what assets were used to collateralize
the transaction, although “black” gold has been mentioned in numerous telephone conversations and correspondence. All parties are certain, however, that an element of the backing collateral was cash. What we do know if that Citibank had accounts in the name of Jose Diaz and Severino Santa Romana. These were bullion
accounts dating back to the years that Santa Romana, General Edward Lansdale and others were engaged in recovering gold stashed on the Philippines by the Japanese plunder teams known as the Golden Lily. Some of Santa Romana’s gold was, at some point in history, converted to cash. This along with gold and other plunder was deposited in well over a hundred bank accounts located in over forty countries throughout the world. These were the deniable assets that made up a particular CIA slush fund known to insiders in the black gold market as the “Black Eagle Fund” – a name that was based on the symbol of the Nazi Eagle.
Part of these assets were placed under the control of the late Baron von Krupp. Baron Krupp’s personal attorney, Carl Hermann Letemeyer, of the private Zurich based law firm of Senn, Christians & Letemeyer handled the Baron’s estate following his death. Documents I published in THE SECRET GOLD TREATY reveal that out of a fortune of just over $12 TRILLION that the late Baron controlled, slightly over $110 billion was earmarked for one Clemente Santiago, a relative of Candelaria Santiago who was the most “trusted lady” of the late President Marcos of the Philippines.
Baron Krupp’s incredible fortune was undoubtedly largely composed of Santa Romana’s plunder later acquired by deception by President Marcos, who had earlier been Santa Romana’s lawyer in the Philippines, prior to his rise to political office. Stories about “Marcos gold” in reality speak of Santa Romana’s gold, and the OSS/CIA’s gold – although Marcos did recover vast quantities for himself via a Philippine Army battalion dedicated to locating
and recovering WWII plunder.
A memorandum under the letterhead of Senn, Christians & Letemeyer and signed by Carl Herman Letemeyer (see exhibits) lists four banks accounts which collectively have balances of US$71 billion. The bulk of this was listed as being held in account number 4 77 22 P at Standard Chartered International Truste Limited, London. US$9 billion is shown under account number LVI 820975 TI at Citicorp, New York. US$12 billion is listed for Bank of China, Hong Kong, under account number 5555 201HE and US$3 billion in the Bank of East Asia, Hong Kong, account number 78 9520 37 0. The memorandum is dated 3rd October 1989 right in line with the Hammer and Jacobe trading programmes.
This is more than interesting. Other information provided to me shows that Standard & Chartered Bank was deeply involved in the Jacobe programme. According to a detailed memorandum in my possession, the Trustee of the Jacobe programme had “arranged that the monies be funneled through a Trust account…” of this bank.
Citibank, according to General Cocke and many others who were involved, was “the cheese” behind the Project Hammer programme. And then there is the Chinese connection to van Rooyen’s Eastech International Bank and van Rooyen’s and Stander’s involvement with both Hammer and Jacobe.
The foregoing has merely scraped the surface of what is an exceptionally complex and extensive story. A great deal of further investigative work is required to plumb the depths in order to present a more comprehensive account.
Presently there are more questions than answers. Project Hammer and Jacobe, meanwhile, are only two of many other trading programmes presently under investigation by this writer. Others with names like Redhead, Grandmother and Graystone also need investigating.
These programmes eclipse more secrets than you can wag a dog’s tail at. They represent the very pinnacle of covert funding for deniable government operations. Slush funds that have been generated by this process are regularly said to be in the many trillions of dollars. This is confirmed in the deposition of General Cocke who argues that the Hammer programme “expanded” by Dan Hughes in 1989, would have “enhanced” over the decade and now is worth over one thousand billion dollars. It is also confirmed by the documents issued by the late Baron von Krupp’s Swiss lawyer which reveal “profits” in excess of US$12 trillion.
Amounts of this magnitude could punch a massive hole through the shortfalls in social welfare programmes around the world. Famine could be virtually eradicated from the face of the earth and death from easily cured diseases in the southern hemisphere, in particular – which spiral for lack of money – could easily become a thing of the past. All this could be achieved if these huge gobs of money were brought in from the cold and placed on-ledger. But there appears no will to do this. Too many difficult questions and harder to justify explanations block the way. How would G7 governments explain to a cynical public that decades of drug money and illegal weapon sales proceeds had been laundered with their blessing (albeit in secret) in order to win the cold war and also to artificially prop up a political system that we call Capitalism, that would otherwise collapse under its own inherent flaws?
It took the CIA over six months to respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking information on Project Hammer and Jacobe. The request was denied under exemptions (b)(1) and (b)(3) of the FOI Act. Section
(b)(1) of the Act applies to material that is “properly classified pursuant to an Executive order in the interest of national defence or foreign policy,” and exemption (b)(3) applies to the CIA Director’s statutory obligation to “protect from disclosure intelligence sources and methods, as well as organization, functions, names, official titles, salaries or numbers of personnel employed by the Agency…” Appeals are in progress.
 “Credit Enhancement Business” is another term that has been used. Others include “Capital Accumulation & Structured Debt Programmes.”
 Others involved believe this sum represents a part of the fallout from the Jacobe transaction and not Hammer.
 This information is drawn from a letter dated December 20, 1995 from C.E. (Jim) Brown (the second husband of Santa Romana’s widow, Luz) which is addressed to the US Justice Department. Sta. Romana also used J Antonio Diaz as another a.k.a. In fact he used many different names and entities to conduct his business.
 Of the many activities that Stander and van Rooyen were engaged in, including gold dealing, setting up banks in Switzerland and Latin America, trading Prime Bank Debentures plus numerous other “business” opportunities, they were also putting together a deal to sell a consignment of Glock pistols.

Janette MacKinlay, February 26, 1948 – December 9, 2010
Janette lived across the street from the World Trade Center in 2001 and was not merely a witness to the attacks, but survived, along with her fellow artist and companion, Jim Lecce, when their artloft’s windows were broken and their apartment filled with dust and debris when the World Trade Center towers came down. Janette’s book, “Fortunate: A Personal Diary of 9/11” is a vivid account of her experiences. She has told her story many times, in presentations, to radio, television and print media. Janette also changed as her story, and the larger story have continued to unfold over the years, granting her more and more insight into her own experience, that of other survivors, and victims’ family members, as well as a deeper understanding of the larger political realities that continue to be discovered by the truth movement.
When she was suddenly diagnosed with brain cancer last February,
she knew instantly what the cause was – 9/11, the dust…

Brigadier General Erle Cocke’s deposition in US District Court, Southern District of New York, April 13, 2000,
April 13, 2000, (as provided in photostat version in Guyatt’s Project Hammer Files), is a critical starting point for understanding the fund. In page 10 of the deposition, Cocke testifies he has reported to every President since Truman. See In Gold Warriors: America’s Secret Recovery of Yamashita’s Gold, Sterling and Peggy Seagrave, Verso, 2005, pp 96-99, the Seagraves explain the origins of the fund and how Secretary of War proposed the trust to Roosevelt.
see “Wall Street counts the cost,” September 13, 2001, BBC News: “Bond trader Cantor Fitzgerald – the largest dealer in US government bonds – appears to have suffered the heaviest losses for a single firm….ICAP, formerly Garban-Intercapital, the world’s largest inter-dealer broker….” From “Intra-Day Behavior of the Federal Funds Market’, Leonardo Bartolini, Svenja Gudell, Spence Hilton, Krista Schwarz, Federal Reserve Bank of New York, May 2005 one finds: “Euro Brokers, one of the largest brokers of federal funds.”
As the largest trader of US securities, over time, most of these securities would end up being held by Cantor, on behalf of their owners. There are however, additional activities identified at Canto-Fitzgerald which suggests a very strong connection to the US Intelligence world.
a. Cantor Fitzgerald has what is described in the press as a long-standing relationship with the Office of Naval Intelligence, the one and only intelligence group that had offices remaining in the section of the Pentagon that was struck by the attacking flight. see At The Pentagon, Quirky PowerPoint Carries Big Punch: In a World of‘Gap’ States, Mr. Barnett Urges Generals To Split Forces in Two, Greg Jaffe, Staff Reporter Of The Wall Street Journal, May 11, 2004 .
b. A group of Cantor Fitzgerald executives and traders had been the primary ‘financial/private sector’ participants in economic war games the year earlier, and in 1997 as well. These war games had been set up, and participated in by various U.S. intelligence agencies and the Council on Foreign Relations, and run out of the Cantor Fitzgerald
offices. It is of notable coincidence that the few published notes on the games indicated the primary trades analyzed during the games were trades in government securities, oil and gold. The coincidence is rooted in the observation that it is these three types of assets that have become the focal point of nearly any and all contrarian theories explaining the events of 9/11.See CFR Bankers Plan for Financial Crash, Richard Freeman, Executive Intelligence Review, July 28, 2000; Thomas P.M. Barnett, the Pentagon’s New Map.
c. At least seven of the top Cantor Fitzgerald executives were absent from the office at the time of the attack. The President of Cantor Fitzgerald was taking his child to a first day of kindergarten, and six more executives were scheduled for a fishing trip that day. The trip was reportedly cancelled due to inclement weather at 8:00 am, but every picture of the WTC that day shows cloudless skies. One of the three, Retired Admiral William (a.k.a. Bud or Bill) Flanagan, is identified as a member of the Board of Directors of the Washington Group International. Bill Flanagan’s role in this theory is of import because he seems to have 1) had a major role in the ‘economic war games’ which may have been conducted from the Cantor offices simultaneously with the other six simulations being executed that day, 2) had corporate responsibility for two firms that benefited financially from the tragedies of 9/11 (Titan and CACI), and 3) had responsibility for a third firm that may have played a role in the actual attack (Raytheon) see: Fort Collins, Colorado, May 26, 2005, TomFlocco.com. Flanagan would then become a VP of Titan Corp., the Defense contractor responsible for those contractors charged in the Abu Ghraib torture cases.
The issue of explosions within the WTC is contentious, although most of the literature focuses on Building 7. Little focus is placed on the events in the North Tower, 22nd through 25th floors. The initial contention that the FBI offices on the floor were destroyed by explosives to cover up evidence crimes by US officials were initially made by Dick Eastman. [See WTC Attack Destroyed Criminal Evidence , Dick Eastman,
He references a report by Peter Jennings about the discrete FBI offices in the building, not listed on the formal occupant roster. The facts which support his theory are:
1. There was an inexplicable patter of death below the crash in the North Tower, compared to the South Tower. “Among the occupants under the impacted floors in WTC 1, 72 people died, whereas under the impacted floors in WTC 2, 4 people died. Some fraction of the deaths below the impacted floors in WTC 1 occurred in the elevators, which were carrying people at the time of impact.” [NIST NCSTAR 1-7A (Draft) ,Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation of the World Trade Center Disaster, Analysis of Published Accounts of the World Trade Center
Evacuation (Draft), Rita F. Fahy, National Fire Protection Association, Guylène Proulx, National Research Council Canada, September 2005, page 2.] Moreover, this pattern of deaths is concentrated in the occupants of the lower floors of the North Tower. With Empire Health reporting the loss of 9 employees and two subcontractors for “unknown Reasons.” “At Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, nine employees and two consultants died: “Some deaths are understood: One man, for example, stayed on the 27th floor with a disabled friend; both died. Other deaths remain a mystery. “We suspect some were in elevators” when the plane hit, vice president Deborah Bohren said. “But we don’t really know.” [World Trade Center Locked Stairwells/Evacuation Problems, Accumulating Comments on…. (c) 2001, Mike Barkley]
2. There is eye-witness testimony that the 22nd through 25th floors were ripped open, although nothing like this is reported elsewhere in the World Trade Center.
• 22nd floor ripped open
“First plane hit our building at 8:45. We decided to evacuate from the 22nd floor after 15 minutes. The delay was because we did not know the extent of the damage; part of the 22nd floor was sheared away…” http://www.huemer.com/ [Inside the North Tower: Witness Accounts, Floors 59-02, http://911stories.googlepages.com/insidethenorthtower:

[9/11 NY Aircraft ‘Witnesses’, April, 7 2006 –Analysis, Nico Haupt April 7, 2006http://www.911closeup.com/nico/witness_contradictions.html]
• 23rd floor ripped open
Page 408 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope Page 409 Murdering Liberty Killing Hope
“We made it up to the 22nd floor. We stood there for a couple minutes. I believe Andy Desperito talked to the battalion
through the fire warden phones. We did locate somebody at the end of the hall, but everything was blown out. The ceiling had fallen. The drop ceiling had blown to the floor. Some of the walls were blown out. So Andy and I had crawled down the hallway to get to the Port Authority command post.” [Firefighter LONG]
• 25th floor ripped open
“When we finally got to the door at the 24th, two women were holding the door open and screaming as they looked down the hall. Morbid curiosity got the best of me. I peeked my head through the door and saw that ceiling had caved in from the above floors. It looked like a tornado had come through the place.” [http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PASCDiscuss/message/7,”From:firstname.lastname@example.org, “Date: Mon Sep 17, 2001 5:25 pm , “Subject:
3. There is the inexplicable coincidence that an explosion has occurred on the floor with the command center, underneath the FBI Offices. It was an explosion that prevented the occupants of the hardened control room from escaping. “The bomb that went off on the 23rd floor of the North Tower near the moment of the first plane hitting the building was revealed indirectly on the 60 Minutes program a week or so later– John Tebeak (Sp.?) the new wtc security chief being interviewed tells of his rescue of Port Authority workers on the 22nd floor totally buried in debris when the bomb-demolished 23rd-floor roof collapsed on them — 30 stories below the airliner crash! (I have this on tape, and have made the transcript, and can put you in touch with Steve in Maine who has the actual video. ) [Is there a connection between the 23rd-floor destruction and a phantom missile that people are claiming to see hitting the building along with the first plane that crashed. People were dead, rescuers had to dig through rubble to rescue the Port Authority personel on the floor below those 23rd-floor government offices (disguised as health insurance offices) where information in the above two cases were being stored. Subject: [CINDS] Frank Levi — small jet/missile seen flying directly over AA-77 to trick radar/ /
OTHER “REMOTEJACK” REMOTE-CONTROL CRASHJACKINGS DOCUMENTED. The destruction on the 22nd floor is attributed in the 9/11 Report to fuel fireballs from the elevator shaft, however, one internet blogger
has articulated to improbability of a fireball on the 22nd floor. “As we know, three shafts continued from the impact zone down to the basement. These three shafts were also the only ones reaching from impact zone to the 22nd floor. It’s important to note that Cars 6 and 7 didn’t stop on floor 22. Only Car 5, 48, 50 and the elevators of Bank B did. So there were no doors or framing which could be blown out in the case of Car 6 and 7. The only one remaining for the official version to be true, is Car 50, the main freight elevator. But the witness also describes looking down and just seeing cables. Obviously the car would be in the shaft somewhere, most likely out of sight, but the witness describes seeing the elevator cables, which if severed as they were in the case of car 50, would not just be hanging there. So elevator 6 and 7 had no door framings, and the remaining elevator 50 had no cables still hanging inside the shaft. It seems that Yarembinsky is not talking about one of these three elevators, which would of course be in contradiction to the official version. Despite this, from firefighter Dunne and Bessler we know also, that more than one elevator was affected. So more than elevator 50. This then must be 6 and 7, as no other shaft reaches the impact zone. This would mean that two separated fireballs, one in the shaft of Car 50, one in the shafts of Car 6 and/or 7, traveled down the shafts and both exploded on floor 22. This would be an incredible
coincidence. An even greater coincidence considered that there were no openings on floor 22 for Car 6 and 7, making it even less probable that the overpressure of an explosion in shaft 6 and 7 would go this way. This is highly unlikely, and it’s reasonable to consider that the elevators the firefighters are describing are not 6 and 7, and likely not 50. This would lead to the question how the fuel got there. So both variants, that 6,7 and/or 50 where the origin of the damage on floor 22 or other elevators caused this, both variants contradict the official version. Because
it was assumed that shaft 6 or 7 were the origin of the explosion, how could the fireball explode on the 22nd floor and on basement-levels without exploding on all the levels between?” [The Basement Explosions, Member No.: 1,085, Nov 2 2007,http://z10.invisionfree.com/Loose_Change_Forum/index.php?showtopic=18745, Nov 2 2007,] 8.47 a.m. WTC security radio report, PA Channel X – “…?…There is a [b]fire on 22.”; 8.47 a.m. WTC security radio report, PA Channel X- “….?…on the 22nd floor a lot of debris.” (NIST NCSTAR1-8, p.194)
“When hijacked American Airlines Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at more than 500 mph, slamming through concrete and corridors, spewing fuel and fire, it destroyed much of the Navy Command Center. It smashed directly into the offices of the CNO-IP. …Even in the acronym-happy Pentagon, the term CNO-IP is obscure. It stands for Chief of Naval Operations Intelligence Plot. Its small, typically young staff keeps a round-the-clock watch on geopolitical developments and military movements Brilliant futures were forged in the CNO-IP.
Adm. Bobby Ray Inman, later deputy CIA director, served there; so did Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.). Radi, who stood the Intelligence Plot watch in his twenties, later moved to the White House Situation Room. In mid- August, …the CNO-IP was moving to renovated offices in the Navy Command Center, on the first floor of the D-Ring, on the Pentagon’s west side. One hundred twenty-five Pentagon workers were killed that day. Forty- two died in the Navy Command Center. Seven served in the Intelligence Plot.” [The Last Watch, Richard Leiby, Washington Post, 1/20/2002]
“In fact, it appears that such bogus gold certificates are being used in some interesting ways by certain Wall Street and Washington types to artificially prop up the U.S. economy to cover up the fraudulent numbers…. I now have in my possession evidence, and sent it out overnight to 10 other secure sources to protect the information, that a 10-year Brady Bond deal was being worked on and closed toward in the end of 1991, or was to have matured and been due somewhere on or after September 11, 2001…. Part of the story can be found by looking into Securities and Exchange Commission v. John D’Aquisto Securities. The name of John D’Aquisto (convicted) also appears numerous times as do Merkav International and Marion Aiken (convicted), First Guilford Financial Limited, London, but domiciled in Isle of Man … along with three of its officers Steve Billand, Charles A.M. Duncan, Jeff Muller, and others related to other companies in Russia, Australia, Ireland, the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Ontario, all patterns to look for in picking up the trails of such scams. It is the “multi-jurisdiction” facet that makes these deals hard to detect, track and litigate for fraud. It is by design and intent so they can perpetrate
fraud and get away with it. One of the D’Aquisto documents was from a “Bay State Trust” based in Zurich, dated 10 September 1991, and just more of a trail that needs to be fully investigated due to the contents of that letter.” Part 4: More reasons to not investigate 9-11, Karl W. B. Schwarz.

“Barry Jennings…described what he saw when he got down to the lobby: “It was totally destroyed, it looked like King Kong had been through it and stepped on it and it was so destroyed I didn’t know where I was. It was so destroyed that had to take me out through a hole in the wall, a makeshift hole I believe the fire department made to get me out.” [http://www.prisonplanet.com/audio/190607clips2.mp3] The key to this information is that the individual testifies this all happened BEFORE either tower collapsed, thus building 7 was at that point completely undamaged from any falling debris or resulting fires.” [9/11 Bombshell: WTC7 Security Official Details Explosions

WTC 7 was also the storage facility for millions of files pertaining to active cases involving international drug dealing, organized crime, terrorism and money laundering.” From PBS Documentary:
Silverstein, FDNY Razed WTC 7, Jeremy Baker; “WTC 7 had a clandestine CIA bunker on the 23rd floor, and offices were occupied by the Department of Defense (DOD), INS (Immigration & Natural Services), the IRS (Internal Revenue System), as well as some of the banks involved in shady wire transactions to the supposed Arab terrorists involved in 9/11. Additionally, the SEC had much of its filings in WTC 7 – including Enron’s SEC filings.
WTC 7 was likely a central planning station for what really happened on 9/11.” From 9-11 Science Report, Dr, Stefan G.E. Grossman, Appendix D; “Maybe no financial institution lost more critical documents than the Securities and Exchange Commission, which had its New York regional office at 7 World Trade Center. While the regulatory agency was fortunate in that it lost no employees in the terror attacks, it suffered setbacks in a number of long-running securities investigations.” From http://www.thestreet.com/markets/matthewgoldstein/10041194.html; “Regardless of what the regulators say, they lost a ton of files,” says Bill Singer, a New York securities lawyer, who says one case he had pending before the SEC quickly settled because so many of the original documents were destroyed. “In my opinion it was a wholesale loss of documents.” From http://www.thestreet.com/markets/matthewgoldstein/
“What’s curious, especially given all the Wall Street scandals later in the year, is that Building 7 was where the SEC was storing files related to numerous Wall Street investigations. All the files for approximately 3,000 to 4,000 SEC cases were destroyed. Some were backed up in other places, but many were not, especially those classified
as confidential. [National Law Journal, 9/17/01] Lost files include documents that could show the relationship
between Citigroup and the WorldCom bankruptcy. [The Street, 8/9/02] The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission estimates over 10,000 cases will be affected. [New York Law Journal, 9/14/01] The Secret Service also lost investigative files. Says one agent: “All the evidence that we stored at 7 World Trade, in all our cases, went down with the building.” From Tech TV, 7/23/02; “It is also eventually revealed that there was a secret CIA office in Building 7” from CNN, November 4, 2001”

“All the command centers save the Navy’s were on the River or Mall sides; the National Military Command Center
could have been decimated as the Navy Command Center was, a disaster that could have effectively shut down the Pentagon as the first American war of the twenty-first century…. When Flight 77 hits the Pentagon, it misses the parts of the building known to house the military’s most senior leaders. Journalist and author Steve Vogel later says, “The hijackers had not hit the River or Mall sides” of the building, “where the senior military leadership had been concentrated since 1942.” At the time of the attack, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld is “sitting in the same third-floor office above the River entrance as every secretary of defense since Louis Johnson in 1949, a location that had been a matter of public record all that time.” From Steve Vogel, The Pentagon: A history (New York: Random House, 2007), pp. 431 and 449.,
The Last Watch, Richard Leiby, Washington Post, January 20, 2002. “In mid-August, …the CNO-IP was moving
to renovated offices in the Navy Command Center, on the first floor of the D-Ring, on the Pentagon’s west side.”
The evidence presented by the National Transportation Safety Board is ‘compelling,’ and this suggests a flight approach at level for which there can be no witnesses other than the testimony their documents provide. The alternative
flight path is drawn from testimony of hundreds of on-ground individuals. Cases can be made for the credibility of either, but the only real issue is whether a loop occurred, and that is not in dispute.

Oliver North would reference the use of Marcos Gold for illegal, covert operations. “In 1985, [Oliver North] attempted to sell 44 tons of Marcos bullion, worth $465 million, on the black market. He blithely suggested skimming
$5 million to finance the Nicaraguan contra war, but the deal fell through when North, true to form, stiffed the Israeli middlemen on the Marcos payroll. Tapes and documents implicating American officials in the gold transfers were withheld from the Iran-contra committee by Major General Colin Powell, Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger and William Odom, director of the NSA. “It wasn’t so much the mention of gold that concerned them,” say Thompson and Kanigher. “It was Marcos talking (on tape) about contributions to U.S. presidential campaigns and the use of the gold proceeds to fund illegal arms deals.” [Iran-Contra Connections to the Oklahoma

It is the contention of this report that these funds, identified through time by various operatives, are one and the same in origin.
Technically, it can be argued that what was done was legal and justified by any number of Executive Orders. Arguments
along those lines seem to convince courts to shut down and/or seal investigations, and make it convenient for judges and legislators to look away. The essence of argument against the covert activities is that all of these funds are all ‘secret’ because the U.S. has no right to the funds under international law. If an argument can be found to justify the retention of the gold, the subsequent arguments which would need to be addressed contend that the ‘secret’ funds violate Constitutional requirements for waging war and separation of powers. One would then need to address illegal profiteering from public funds, and dereliction of duty for lack of oversight. It seems that when people ‘disagree’ with the management of this fund, their rights are denied in the interest of ‘national security’. When a fund that was created in the interest of defending democracy is used to subvert it – it needs to be exposed for what it is.

An argument can be made for the reported explosions in the basement that they were set to destroy the vault shared by all the financial organizations in the WTC, thus destroying certificates required to settle the loans.. “The difficulty with lost certificates was dramatically demonstrated during the September 11,2001, tragedy when thousand of certificates were destroyed in vaults maintained by broker-dealers.” From the Federal Register / Vol. 67, No. 151 / Tuesday, August 6, 2002 / Notices.

and conditions murky, but it is also still far from clear how much French gold was returned to France, how much found its way to the American reserves, and how much was turned into “Swiss gold”.

The history of Bush / Reagan relationship is intriguing. Reagan did not want Bush as his VP. Reagan disliked Bush, and was reluctant to appoi nt him as Vice President. Rockerfeller told him that if he didn’t take Bush in the Vice-President’s slot, “The only way you will see the inside of the White House is as a tourist.” Later, his support for Bush slid significantly. See also: Haines, Joe. Maxwell. Boston: Houghton-Mifflin, 1988 . 21-2; 171-2; 382-6; 402-5. “ It was 1988 when Reagan first began to seem to “backslide” on Bush. He refused to endorse Bush versus the other Republican Presidential contenders in the GOP primaries in 1988, then refused to even say whether he’d voted for Bush that year. Then, in 1992, he told Clinton he voted for him instead of Bush.”

a fairly good relationship,” North writes before explaining Noriega’s proposal. If U.S. officials can “help clean up his image” and lift the ban on arms sales to the Panamanian Defense Force, Noriega will “’take care of’ the Sandinista leadership for us.” North tells Poindexter that Noriega can assist with sabotage against the Sandinistas,

“Saudi financier Adnan Khashoggi is charged by the State of New York in aiding and abetting former Filipino first lady Imelda Marcos in hiding billions from her country after she and husband Ferdinand Marcos were forced to flee the island nation. The charges are brought by New York Attorney General Rudolph Giuliani, who apparently
has a personal score to settle with Khashoggi after Khashoggi defeated Giuliani’s client John Tumpane in a business lawsuit. After a long and heated court battle, during which time Khashoggi was forced to stay in New York City under house arrest, the jury acquits Khashoggi of all charges. According to a former Army intelligence officer, Giuliani gets the indictments filed after months of effort by threatening George Bush that if he doesn’t stop blocking the indictment, that he will call a press conference and complain that the White House is interfering with the criminal justice system merely to protect Bush’s friend Khashoggi.

The doubtfulness of the claim was documented in the Canadian Mining Hall of Fame profile of Peter Munk: “ Munk then turned his attention to a Nevada heap-leach project producing a mere 40,000 oz. gold each year. The industry doubted its potential…”[Canadian Mining Hall of Fame,
“…over 300 KGB generals and colonels were allowed to enter the United States and were provided with very comfortable homes, mostly in northern Virginia. Most KGB generals now get a check for $12,000 a month from the Agency. KGB colonels get $8,000 a month plus a panoply of favors. Most of these guys are now in the

his office.“ [From The Conspirators: Secrets of an Iran-Contra Insider, by Al Martin
A classic example of hiding this from the public was the case of Karon von Gerhke-Thompson. She has been retained by Russian oligarch Alexander Knonaykhine, to arrange for “passports and visas.”. “Concurrently, I was a business partner of the late U.S. Attorney John M. Mitchell, Chairman of Global Research International, and a principal in the firm of Murphy and Associates, Inc., founded by Admiral Daniel J. Murphy, U.S. Navy Retired and former Chief of Staff to then-Vice President Bush…. This project was brought to me by Carter Cornick, Eugene
Propper and Jonathan Ginsberg of the Washington, DC. based law firm of Ginsberg, Feldman and Bress. Cornick, Propper and Ginsberg wanted my help in assisting them in accessing officials who could facilitate a favorable negotiation climate for the establishment of a bank and expedite the procurement of the passports.” [Statement of Karon von Gerhke-Thompson, Vice President, First Columbia Company, Inc.] Her Congressional
testimony was discouraged by everyone, including the CIA, as indicated in her Congresional testimony. All traces of Karon Von Gerhke-Thompson and First Columbia Company had disappeared by 2004, according to Alan Block and Constance Weaver.

“Valued at $35 billion, Russia’s gold reserves were estimated to be 100 million troy ounces – just under 3000 tonnes. Then in September 1991, a palpitating Grigory Yavlinski, the economic supremo, revealed to delegates at the Group-of-Seven industrial countries meeting in Bangkok, that a mere 240 tons were all that was left. Two months later, in November, even that had disappeared. “Not a gram of gold remains; the vaults are empty,” said Victor Geraschenko, chief of Gosbank, the Russian Central Bank.” See Gangster’s Paradise, David Guyatt, 1997

This possibility is mentioned in that the dates on the bank transactions in the files made public by ONI show
three phases of activity. The earliest set of dates seem to correlate with the resolution of the third world debt
issue, which was conducted in an extremely secretive manner. Without any public documentation on Bush’s
role in this effort, it can only be viewed as a possible ‘augmentation,’ and theoretical at best.

Bohringer’s status as pilot for Viktor
Kozeny reinforces the contention he is CIA, as Kozeny has multiple indications he was an agent for Western Intelligence: 1) Kozeny received funding for his Azerbaijan bribery and money laundering efforts to purchase SOCAR, the Azerbaijan State Oil Company, from AIG. AIG has been, since WWII, a major CIA intelligence operation.
History records that the OSS learned that in the 1940’s that the Nazis owned 45% of the world’s insurance companies, and used the background files from these companies to plan their espionage and bombing raids. With this lesson, when William ‘Wild Bill’ Dovovan created the CIA, part of his legacy was an extensive partnership with AIG. [see “The Secret (Insurance) Agent Men,” Mark Fritz. The Los Angeles Times 2000 September 22, 200] 2) Kozeny’s contact at AIG was Frank Gardiner Wisner [see Capturing the Pirate of Prague, Rob Urban and David Glovin, International Eurasian Institute for Economic and Political Research, Bloomberg Markets, February 23, 2006] Frank G Wisner was head of Office of Strategic Services operations in southeastern Europe at the end of World War II, and the head of the Directorate of Plans of the Central Intelligence Agency during the 1950s.]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Wisner] 3) One of Kozeny’s key promoters was Senator George Mitchell. Mitchell had served in the U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence Corps from 1954 until 1956, and later served on the Iran-Contra Senate Hearings and while challenging some of Oliver North’s assumptions about patriotism, inevitably
supported the conclusions of the committee. 4) When Kozeny and his investment ‘partners’ were brought to US court for money laundering and bribery, Judge Shira A. Scheindlin dismissed most of the charges. [see Federal Prosecutors Hope To Revive Oil Bribery Case, Free Internet Press, 2007-08-23].
Scheindlin is the same judge that dismissed charges against Osama Awadallah, who was an associate of the two San Diego based September 11 terrorists. Her ruling prevented the FBI from collecting information on the two terrorists. 5) Kozeny was initially funded by loans from Alpha Bank, which is represented in the US by ex- Bush administrators Lanny Griffith and Ed Rogers of Barbour, Griffith and Rogers [Seller of Privatization Securities Is Indicted in the U.S., Gretchen Morgenson, New York Times, October 3, 2003]. Kozeny used his scam proceeds to repay Alpha Bank. It is of related note that Alpha Bank funds a fellowship for Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft, which also funded Mohammed Atta’s entrance to Germany.

“The organization that apparently sponsored Atta’s travels was the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft (its American component is the Carl Duisberg Society)—named for one of the principal figures in the founding of I.G. Farben. “News that Mohamed Atta had been on the payroll of an elite international program known as the ‘Congress- Bundestag Program first surfaced a month after the 9/11 attack in a brief seven-line report by German newspaper Frankfurter Algemeine Zeitung on 10/18/2001 under the headline ‘Atta was Tutor for Scholarship Holders… Atta had therefore been on the payroll of a joint U.S.-German government program was concealed by the newspaper through the simple expedient of neglecting to mention that the ‘Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft’ was merely a private entity set up to administer an official U.S. and German government initiative,” (For the Record, #408, Recorded on 4/27/2003, http://spitfirelist.com/f408.html)

In all these cases, the reference to the CIA should be carefully weighed with the consideration that U.S. Intelligence
operations are organizationally fluid. Like Task Force 157, (see Note 75) it would be fair to assume that most of these operations require plausible deniability, and are not standard CIA payroll operations.

Raytheon deaths as reported by the Associated Press, 9/25/2001, Intelligence Surveillance Reconaissance Journal,
3/2002, CNN, 9/2001 and Chicago Tribune, 9/16/2001. As details of the passengers on the four hijacked flights emerge, some are shown to have curious connections to the defense company Raytheon, and possibly its Global Hawk pilotless aircraft program. Stanley Hall (Flight 77) was director of program management for Raytheon
Electronics Warfare. One Raytheon colleague calls him “our dean of electronic warfare.” [Associated Press, 9/25/2001] Peter Gay (Flight 11) was Raytheon’s vice president of operations for Electronic Systems and had been on special assignment to a company office in El Segundo, California. [Associated Press, 9/25/2001] Raytheon’s
El Segundo’s Electronic Systems division is one of two divisions making the Global Hawk. [Intel- ligence Surveillance Reconaissance Journal, 3/2002] Kenneth Waldie (Flight 11) was a senior quality control engineer for Raytheon’s electronic systems. David Kovalcin (Flight 11) was a senior mechanical engineer for Raytheon’s electronic
systems. [CNN, 9/2001] Herbert Homer (Flight 175) was a corporate executive working with the Department
of Defense. [CNN, 9/2001; Northeastern University Voice, 12/11/2001] A surprising number of passengers, especially on Flight 77, have military connections. For instance, William E. Caswell was a Navy scientist whose work was so classified that his family knew very little about what he did each day. Says his mother, “You just learn not to ask questions.” [Chicago Tribune, 9/16/2001]

As reported by Captain Field McConnell and Air Accident Digest: “Anti-terrorism auto-land system. On this side of the Atlantic, aircraft manufacturer Boeing has received a patent for a system that, once activated, removes all control from pilots and automatically returns a commercial airplane to a predetermined landing location. The uninterruptible autopilot would be activated either by pilots, by onboard sensors, or remotely by radio or satellite links, if terrorists attempt to gain control of the flight deck. Once the cockpit door is unlocked, for any reason, Boeing says “the chances of safely bringing the vehicle to a stop where authorities can help resolve the threat onboard the vehicle greatly decreases.” Assuming the sanctity of the cockpit is breached, the system could include manual switches for pilots to hit, or a remote link whereby airline or government officials at ground facilities would monitor the aircraft and command the automatic control mode. Had such a system been installed on the 9/11 aircraft, the terrorists might have been able to kill the pilots, but the aircraft would not have been used for attacking the twin towers of the World Trade Center, or to hit the Pentagon. The fourth airplane that crashed into a field also would have been recovered to a safe landing site under the concept envisioned by Boeing.”
It is reported that the US company Raytheon landed a 727 six times in a military base in New Mexico with- out any pilots on board. This was done to test equipment making future hijackings more difficult, by allowing ground control
to take over the flying of a hijacked plane. [Associated Press, 10/2/2001; Der Spiegel (Hamburg), 10/28/2001] Several Raytheon employees with possible ties to this remote control technology program appear to have been on the hijacked 9/11 flights (see September 25, 2001). Earlier in the year, a specially designed Global Hawk plane flew from the US to Australia without pilot or passengers. [Independent Television News, 4/24/2001] However, most media reports after 9/11 suggest such technology is currently impossible. For instance, the Observer quotes an expert who says that “the technology is pretty much there” but still untried. [Observer, 9/16/2001] An aviation-security expert at Jane’s Defence Weekly says this type of technology belongs “in the realms of science fiction.” [Financial Times, 9/18/2001; Economist, 9/20/2001] Even President Bush appears to deny the technology currently
exists. He gives a speech after 9/11 in which he mentions that the government would give grants to research “new technology, probably far in the future, allowing air traffic controllers to land distressed planes by remote control.” [New York Times]

As reported in Defense Udate: Weighing over four tons, Heron TP – also dubbed Heron 2 or “Eitan”, by its Israeli Air Force (IAF) designation – is designed to fly at high altitude on missions spanning over several days. Israel was seeking a MALE UAV capability for many years, in fact, the first application of an armed MALE UAV was considered in the mid 1990s, as an alternative for the Arrow ballistic missile defense system, also developed by IAI. Eitan, derived from the `heron TP platform, was developed under an Israel Ministry Of Defence (IMOD)

The Pentagon Aattack Papers by Barbara Honegger Published in the 9/11 Expose Book The Terror Conspiracy by Jim Marrs and on the Web at [Patriotsquestion911.com]
Prof. David Ray Griffin has included the core finding of Honeggers white paper – evidence for inside-the-building bombs at the Pentagon on 9/11, paralleling the already-well-known inside-the-building explosives at the WTC that morning – in his latest and most definitive expose book on September 11th, “The New Pearl Harbor Revisited”
(Chapter 2, ‘Reports of Bombs’). In a previous book, Griffin said that any serious reinvestigation of 9/11 should include the information and analysis contained in Honeggers White Paper. Honegger’s two-hour under-oath videotaped interview and testimony formed the basis for a critical new 9/11 lawsuit filed in Manhattan on Dec. 15, 2008

Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe

James R. Gourley and Bradley R. Larsen Pp 7-31
We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center. Examination of four of these samples, collected from separate sites, is reported
in this paper. These red/gray chips show marked similarities in all four samples. One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a fourth about a week later. The properties of these chips were analyzed using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy (XEDS), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The red material contains grains approximately 100 nm across which are largely iron oxide, while aluminum is contained in tiny plate-like structures. Separation of components using methyl ethyl ketone demonstrated that elemental aluminum is present. The iron oxide and aluminum are intimately mixed in the red material. When ignited
in a DSC device the chips exhibit large but narrow exotherms occurring at approximately 430 °C, far below the normal ignition temperature for conventional thermite. Numerous iron-rich spheres are clearly observed in

the residue following the ignition of these peculiar red/gray chips. The red portion of these chips is found to be an unreacted thermitic material and highly energetic.

Backup Communications System Was ‘Miraculously’
Switched on for ‘Exercise Mode’ and Ready for Use on 9/11
A special backup network that allows communications between government and military agencies to continue during emergencies was “miraculously” switched on the day before 9/11, and so was already operational when the terrorist attacks in New York and at the Pentagon took place. The Special Routing Arrangement Service (SRAS) was, for reasons unknown, turned on for “exercise mode” on September 10, 2001, and was therefore ready to be utilized the following day, when there was a national emergency like that for which it was intended.
WTC7 Security Official Details Explosions Inside
Building 7 BEFORE Towers Collapse
The individual in a second clip detailed hearing further explosions and then described what he saw when he got down to the lobby:
“It was totally destroyed, it looked like King Kong had been through it and stepped on it and it was so destroyed
i didn’t know where I was. It was so destroyed that had to take me out through a hole in the wall, a makeshift hole I believe the fire department made to get me out.”
He was then told by firefighters to get twenty blocks away from the area because explosions were going off all over the World Trade Center complex.
The key to this information is that the individual testifies this all happened BEFORE either tower collapsed, thus building 7 was at that point completely undamaged from any falling debris or resulting fires. It also means that explosions were witnessed in WTC7 up to eight hours before its collapse at around 5.30pm.

This is the “forward” typically at the beginning of a book. I decided to place it at the end so you can consider it the “Backward.”
This book has been almost 9 years in the making.
In 2002 I decided to prove that 19 Muslims with box cutters hijacked 4 Boeing commercial jets from US international airports and crashed them into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center Twin Towers. In late 2005, stunned by the evidence I had uncovered and realizing this would become a full-time endeavor I decided to examine everything ever written, filmed or photographed on this subject.
After almost 9 years I have read literally everything ever written on the subject of 911; I’ve watched hundreds if not thousands of hours of video and saved many of the videos to my computer and watched them again. I’ve carefully examined many thousands of photos. Thanks to todays technology and large storage drives I’ve downloaded and own almost everything there is on the subject of 911. In July of 2010 I downloaded 1000s of videos released by NIST under Freedom Of Information Act requests that litigated in favor of release. I’ve purchased David Ray Griffins many books, the NIST report and FEMA documents. I’ve downloaded the hundreds of FEMA pictures made available in 2005 and the Sonnenfeld images as well. I’ve copied the FBI Moussaoui Trial transcripts and downloaded the FBI trial exhibits. There isn’t much I don’t have or haven’t seen on the subject of the events of 911. More importantly,
I’ve scoured the internet for difficult to find data, things not generally pursued, pages rarely viewed and I’ve taken the time to read everything, even the seemingly unimportant things. This process, over many years, has led to this book. It’s not all-inclusive; that would require volumes, but it collects
a wealth of lesser known information along with some data and statistics already known and I believe it successfully makes the argument, as many before me have, that 911 was an inside job.
911 was NOT a Muslim terrorist event and I have ended up proving to my own satisfaction that it was as American as Apple Pie and Mom.
Yes, 911 was made in America.
Examining the evidence even in a cursory manner leaves the unmistakable impression that not only couldn’t a band of gypsy terrorists pull this off but that even a foreign country could not have pulled this off with such precision right here at home on American soil. This event was perpetrated by the Highest Office in the land, the Office of The President of The United States with the assistance of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Reserve Banks, the US military Command and Control and 4 and 5 Star Generals. This was a National Security Black Ops event and everything that attempts
to prove otherwise is disinformation. This book proves this beyond any doubt at all. It’s with great sadness that I must inform you that the country
I thought I lived in actually never existed in my lifetime. I’m not certain we’ll ever recover from the events that took place prior to and on 911 and it’s with even greater sadness that I’m compelled to inform the reader that the events of 911 continue today. The Sub-Prime crisis of 2004-2008 and the Bond defaults of 2011-2012, which of course haven’t yet occurred as of this writing are the natural progression of and directly related to the vast financial
manipulations orchestrated by these elected and non-elected criminals.
I don’t believe in God.
If you do, you’d better start praying. The People that pulled off 911 are still in charge… and they’re fucking psychopaths!
