It�s not unjustifiable or irrational to argue that the 9/11
attacks were designed and intended to rescue Israel from a political
dissolution which was seen by many thinkers as its ultimate destiny, and to
promote the cordial coalition of Bush and bin Laden families. It�s no wonder
that nine years after the attacks on New York�s Twin Towers and Pentagon, Osama
bin Laden, who is introduced as an Islamic fundamentalist and terrorist that
masterminded and directed the 9/11 attacks, hasn�t been arrested or killed yet.
For those who are familiar with the world of journalism, it�s
comprehensible that Osama bin Laden was simply a name which was put forward to
become the target of ad hominem attacks by the mainstream media of the
Bilderberg Group to appease the pain of Americans who couldn�t digest the
tragic loss of life in a chain of suicidal attacks, which were carried out by
the agents of a political entity which has so far succeeded in surviving thanks
to the ignorance of taxpayers who don�t know where their taxes go.
Two days after the attacks, President George W. Bush said on
September 13, 2001, that finding bin Laden is the administration�s first
priority. These are his words: �the most important thing for us is to find
Osama bin Laden. It�s our number one priority and we will not rest until we
Six months later, everything changed. These are the words of
President George W. Bush, too: �I don�t know where he is. I have no idea and I
really don�t care. It�s not that important. It�s not our priority.�
The priority changes in six months. Isn�t it ridiculous? No.
Realistically, it�s simply painful. The mission has been accomplished and Osama
bin Laden, a political scapegoat, has been vilified and stigmatized to the
extent that every American would point the finger of suspicion at him. Nobody
would think of any other possibility. Osama bin Laden, an internationally
renowned terrorist, had carried out the attacks. So, there should be a War on
Terrorism in which the culprits of the 9/11 attacks would be punished
But, what is the reality behind the tragic terrorist attack
on the United States?
1- Ex-President George W. Bush knew in advance that the 9/11
attack would take place. The story of President Roosevelt�s being aware of the
December 7, 1941 Attack on Pearl Harbor
happened once again and Mr. Bush betrayed his nation reprehensibly.
Sterling D. Allan has enumerated a number of evidences and
reasons which indicate that President Bush had foreknowledge of the attacks and
also had planned a certain agenda for his consecutive public reaction. This is
one of the most insightful arguments he puts forward: �He (Bush) is the only
one who could have given permission to U.S. military jets to intercept and
shoot down the hijacked planes thereby averting every target hit after the
first. It is likely that he knew that other hijacked planes were in the air,
and he could have given the command to intercept and shoot down if necessary.
His known behavior constituted gross negligence at best, and given what he most
probably knew; treason.�
2- American researchers Allan Wood and Paul Thompson point
to the same issue that Allan had highlighted earlier. At approximately 8:48 a.m. on the morning of September 11,
2001, the first footages of the burning World Trade
Center were aired on live
television. �By that time, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the North
American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the National Military Command
Center, the Pentagon, the White House, the Secret Service, and Canada�s
Strategic Command all knew that three commercial airplanes had been hijacked . .
. So why, at 9:03 a.m.�fifteen
minutes after it was clear the United States was under terrorist attack�did
President Bush sit down with a classroom of second-graders and begin a 20-minute
pre-planned photo op? No one knows the answer to that question� they note in a
research project carried out for the History Commons.
3- President Bush had planned to pay a visit to Booker
Elementary School in Sarasota, Florida, on September 11 morning. The plan had
been scheduled since August but was �only publicly announced on the morning of
September 7,� according to Allan and Thompson.
As reported by Daily Telegraph on December 16, 2001,
official accounts, including the words of Bush himself, say Bush was first told
of the attacks after he arrived at the school. According to reports by the ABC
News and Washington Times, ex-President arrived at school shortly before 9:00 a.m. Alan Wood and Paul Thompson state
that there are at least four reports which demonstrate that Bush was told of
the first crash before he arrived at school. UK�s Observer reported on
September 16 that �Bush was driving to the school in a motorcade when the phone
rang. An airline accident appeared to have happened. He pressed on with his
The History Commons researchers believe that �claims of
Bush�s ignorance become harder to believe when one learns that others in his
motorcade were immediately told of the attack.�
They quoted Kia Baskerville, a CBS News producer, who was
traveling with Bush that morning who received a message about a plane crash �as
the presidential motorcade headed to President Bush�s first event.� Baskerville
said, �Fifteen minutes later I was standing in a second grade classroom
[waiting for Bush�s entrance]� which means she got the news at about 8:47,
right as the story was first being reported.
3- Since the mainstream media are accustomed to withholding
crucial and vital information from their addressees and usually propagate and
disseminate what is in line with their imperialistic interests, not many people
heard about Osama bin Laden�s taped statement which was released shortly after
the 9/11 attacks took place. Here is what bin Laden stated about the attacks.
He astutely gave the clue to the main culprit behind the terrorist attacks and
one could simply trace the footsteps of that perpetrator should some
intelligence and cleverness were employed: �I was not involved in the September
11 attacks in the United
States nor did I have knowledge of the
attacks. There exists a government within a government within the United States.
The United States
should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself, to the
people who want to make the present century a century of conflict between Islam
and Christianity. That secret government must be asked as to who carried out
the attacks . . . The American system is totally in control of the Jews, whose
first priority is Israel,
not the United States.�
4- It is an undeniable fact that even if the War on
Terrorism, sparked by the 9/11 attacks, takes decades to be accomplished as a
mission on the agenda of the U.S. administration, Osama bin Laden will not be
the culprit who will be arrested as the man behind the terrorist attacks. Bin
Laden will beneficially serve for the United
States as someone who can portray a distorted, horrifying
and appalling image of Islam and what is coined by the U.S. think tanks as Islamic
Although bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, which all of us know was
founded and funded by CIA, has been introduced as the terrorist who directed
the 9/11 attacks, we should never forget that good friends never betray each
other. bin Laden is a good friend of the United States who sacrificed his
innocence at the cost of rescuing the Bush administration from public scrutiny.
As reported by Denver Post�s columnist Cindy Rodr�guez, �in
1978, Bush and Osama bin Laden�s brother, Salem
bin Laden, founded Arbusto Energy, an oil company based in Texas.�
The Denver Post�s report includes some more interesting
facts regarding the connection between Bush and bin Laden families: �Several
bin Laden family members invested millions in The Carlyle Group, a private
global equity firm based in Washington,
DC. The company�s senior advisor
was Bush�s father, former President George H.W. Bush. After news of the bin
Laden-Bush connection became public, the elder Bush stepped down from Carlyle.�
Interestingly, on Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Carlyle
Group, including Bush senior, and his former secretary of state, James Baker,
held a meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., along with Shafiq
bin Laden, another one of Osama bin Laden�s brothers.
And finally, it�s helpful to refer to Rick Wiles�
investigative research in which some new dimensions of Bush family�s
connections to bin Laden family has been revealed: �One of President Bush�s
earliest financial backers was James Bath, a Houston aircraft broker. Bath served with President Bush in the Texas
Air National Guard. Bath
has a mysterious connection to the Central Intelligence Agency.�
�According to a
1976 trust agreement, Salem bin Laden appointed
James Bath as his business representative in Houston. Revelation about Bath�s relationship
with the bin Laden financial empire and the CIA was made public in 1992 by Bill
White, a former real estate business partner with Bath. White informed federal
investigators in 1992 that Bath told him that he had assisted the CIA in a
liaison role since 1976 - the same year former President George Herbert Walker
Bush served as director of the CIA,� notes Wiles in a 2001 American Freedom
What is clear is that War on Terrorism was a project which
was launched to salvage Israel
from political dissolution or at least hold up its collapse. It�s also a
definite reality that the U.S.
administration would never target the main hands behind the 9/11 attacks,
because these hands have been shaken by the U.S. bigwigs several times. Osama
bin Laden was a name to entertain the global public opinion. As the Press TV
columnist Mohioddin Sajedi noted in his recent article, Israel was the
sole winner of 9/11 attacks. Remember those five dancing Israelis who cheered
victoriously while capturing videos of the collapsing Twin Towers.
That�s the reality.
