1/19/2015: When I first started writing articles in 2005, I probably promulgated many popular theories because of my ignorance. I cringe when I read some of my early efforts. I could cleanse my own archives but it would be like trying to capture feathers in a whirlwind because my articles are on other web sites. While many of the issues that appear in this multi-part article remain true, I have engaged in further, more objective research and no longer support the same conclusions that I arrived at when I began writing on the internet. People perpetuate false information, often unknowingly, because he/she is quoting or relying on other people’s information. Each of us needs to engage in independent objective research, and always use critical thinking when reading the "research" of others.


George W. Bush, portraying himself as just a regular down-to-earth guy, took office 20 Jan 2001 and immediately installed several controversial neoconservatives into the Pentagon and into the White House as defined in Bush’s War of Terror, part 6. The new administration did not have to formulate an agenda as it was already completed and is entitled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century”. This blueprint for transforming America into a global hegemony was created in September 2000 by the Washington based Project for a New American Century when it appeared that their presidential puppet might just win the election. That victory was finally cinched when the Florida voting fiasco [i] was ultimately settled in court. [ii] Incidentally, Florida’s governor Jeb Bush is a charter member of the Project for a New American Century.

This nefarious group’s proposal for American military action briefly includes the following:

“Establish four core Missions for U.S. military forces:”

·        Defend the American homeland.

·        Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars.

·        Perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions.

·        Transform U.S. forces to exploit the revolution in military affairs to ensure long term superiority of U.S. forces.

America’s transformation, per the document, also recommends the following:

·        Increase military spending.

·        Build American military bases in Central Asia and the Middle East.

·        Remove all non compliant regimes.

·        Control of all the world’s energy sources.

·        They are willing to use nuclear weapons to achieve American hegemony.

·        Control the New International Commons of space and cyberspace.

·        Play a permanent role in the Middle East which transcends the regime of Saddam Hussein. [iii]


Again in “Rebuilding America’s Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century” we find the following statement: “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” [iv]  

So unless there is a catastrophic Pearl Harbor style event their self serving American transformation may require more time than their greedy globalist patience will allow.  But those who govern cannot simply schedule a catastrophic event for the benefit of the elitist agenda, right? Wrong – it has been successfully accomplished before. [v] So if a speedy transformation is paramount, an active well trained, well connected terrorist group or even another country could conceivably be hired, provoked or coerced into an attack. This scenario seems totally unthinkable to the average citizen. We readily resist those “crazy conspiracy” possibilities, even when confronted by substantial reliable evidence, that those we’ve entrusted with our liberties would abuse our confidence. And not merely abuse our trust but bring us great bodily harm and totally escape culpability. Therein exists their opportunity to regulate our reality for their perverted purposes, aided and abetted by a compliant, complicit cheerleading media. Too many Americans are in a perpetual state of denial and prefer emotional comfort rather than facts as if ignorance will somehow protect them from all the consequences.

Terrorist activities are not new; we have experienced their wrath. However, our homeland, though infiltrated by professed or surreptitious enemies, has, until recently, remained unscathed as far as what we consider actual warfare except for the Civil War. Our more than adequate yearly intelligence budget of $30 billion dollars should guarantee some measure of security. [vi] Yet, our security was breached which should send up big red flags for anyone who has spent the necessary time to evaluate the probabilities. Either there was high level complicity or prior knowledge in the attack of 11 September 2001 or there was extensive, all encompassing lack of competence in several areas. In as much as the Project for a New American Century provided their completely unpublicized agenda in advance we at least have a reliable list of suspects for this crime. Here, again, all perpetrators continually rely on their victim’s naivety and skepticism.

We also have the usual, more overt, suspects – people who have or are suspected of perpetrating previous acts of terror against our country. This list would include Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaeda network. Al Qaeda is merely a term meaning the database, a listing of the individuals that the CIA trained to fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Whatever their origin, we have the good guys and the bad guys. The good guys are supposed to scrutinize the actions and mentality of the bad guys to prevent the bad guys from doing bad things – the reason for that extraordinary yearly intelligence budget. It should also be noted that there is a perpetual wavering between the good and bad guys. Sometimes America supports and even sponsors the bad guys if it is beneficial for the elite agenda. For instance, the Taliban was in a favored position from about 1994 to 1998.

One very skilled good guy was FBI agent extraordinaire John P. O’Neill, formerly the Director of Counterterrorism in the New York office. He was an absolute expert on our archenemy/terrorist, Osama bin Laden, a Saudi Arabian. John O’Neill was obsessive in his bin Laden investigations. He spent long hours and demanded a great deal from himself. He was flamboyant, energetic and an effective, brilliant investigator. He felt that it was possible to destroy the Al Qaeda network but that the work had to begin in Saudi Arabia – where else if that is where Osama was from. However, in January 2001, incoming president, George W. Bush, immediately stopped all attempts by John O’Neill in his investigation of Saudi and bin Laden connections. [vii]

There are very good reasons why Bush hindered the investigations. George W. Bush had a long term business relationship with Salem bin Laden, the older half brother of Osama and the head of one of the world’s biggest construction companies. His company, which he took over after the death of his father in 1972, helped to build the U.S. airfields during the first gulf war. Salem bin Laden was an investor in George W. Bush’s oil company – Arbusto Energy Company in Texas. Another one of Bush’s financial backers was James Bath, a Houston aircraft broker who also had ties to Salem bin Laden. In fact, it was on behalf of Salem bin Laden that James Bath purchased the Houston Gulf Airport.

Salem, a very experienced pilot, died in an unfortunate “freak” plane crash near San Antonio on 29 May 1988. Arbusto later became Bush Exploration when George H. W. Bush became vice president. The company was close to financial collapse in September 1984 when it merged with Spectrum 7 Energy Corporation owned by William DeWitt and Mercer Reynolds. They immediately made George W. Bush president of the company and gave him over 13% of the stock. Spectrum merged with Harken Energy in 1986 and in 1990 received a huge contract with the government of Bahrain to drill for off-shore oil which tiny Harken had never before done. This was possibly at the request of President George H. W. Bush (1989-1993) through the Saudi government with whom President Bush was closely allied. The unsuccessful project was soon abandoned. [viii]

Prior to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, George W. Bush sold his 212,140 shares of Harken stock on 20 June 1990. They sold at $4 a share for a total of $848,560 which was $318,430 more than they were worth. George is just really lucky that people were looking the other way when this insider trading occurred. Heck, Martha Stewart wasn’t even accused of insider trading but was guilty of lying about it. [ix] I suppose this suggests that there are laws for the politically connected and then there are laws for successful business women which may be the same as the laws for the really regular folks. A book entitled: Fortunate Son: George W. Bush and the Making of an American President was written by James Howard Hatfield and gives more details about this. Unfortunately this author will not be able to supply any more details than what is in the book as he was found dead on 18 July 2001 at the age of 43 in a motel room from an apparent prescription drug overdose, an open and shut case – no police need investigate! [x]

There were business ties between the bin Laden and the Bush families as recent as 1995 when the bin Ladens invested $2 million dollars into the Carlyle Group of which George H. W. Bush is a board member. The bin Laden and the Bush families apparently severed their relationship in October 2001. This was at the same time that the Carlyle Group went public with their privately held United Defense Industries, a defense contractor that produces missile launch systems – the ones that are on U.S. war ships in the Arabian Sea. [xi] This was also a month after several members of the bin Laden family left the United States, without being questioned about their relative – the prime suspect in the 9/11 attack. They left on a private jet before any one else was allowed to travel by air after 9/11.

In 1990 George W. Bush was appointed to the board of the Carlyle Group’s subsidiary, Caterair, an airline catering company. He served in this capacity until he was elected governor in 1994. After he became governor, Carlyle was awarded two lucrative business deals involving Texas state funds. In 1996 the University of Texas Investment Management Company (UTIMCO) awarded very “lucrative contracts to private firms to invest portions of UT’s $14 billion endowment.” “The board (which is appointed by the governor’s handpicked UT System Regents) of UTIMCO awarded many of these contracts to firms close to W. – including Carlyle.”  “As of May 2001, Carlyle controlled more than $15 million of University of Texas public endowment funds. This includes $10.5 million that is commingled in the same Carlyle Partners II Fund where the bin Ladens parked their money.” “UTIMCO's chairman, Tom Hicks, now owns the Texas Rangers; his purchase of the team made Governor Bush a very rich man.” [xii] In the same month that George W. was elected president, the Teacher Retirement System of Texas chose Carlyle to invest $100 million dollars of its pension funds. [xiii]

So, it is no surprise that John O’Neill was severely hampered in his attempts to investigate the bin Ladens. There were some minor infractions that the emotionally distraught O’Neill found difficult to deal with including trumped up charges involving the compromising of top secret information. He felt that there were some treasonous activities in the highest levels of government and was threatening to go public. [xiv] He was also financially strapped and had hoped to replace Richard Clarke who had asked Condoleezza Rice for a different assignment. Frustrated over these issues, O’Neill resigned from the FBI on 22 August 2001 and began his new job in the private sector as the head of Security at the World Trade Center where he would make twice what he made at the FBI Wonder who made him that lucrative offer? He was relieved to leave the stress and recent frustrations associated with his job at the FBI and with the additional income felt he and his long time girl friend could marry. His new office was on the 34th floor of the North Tower. He died 11 September 2001 along with many other unsuspecting American citizens.

John O’Neill was not the only FBI investigator who could have provided or tried to provide information that could have prevented the 9/11 attack. There were many forewarnings. Some of the warnings were legitimate and others were questionable and amounted to pointing fingers, perhaps to divert attention from the guilty or complicit. On 16 September 2001 the London Daily Telegraph said that two senior experts from Mossad, the Israeli military Intelligence Service, went to Washington in August 2001 to warn the FBI and the CIA of a 200 member cell of terrorists lead by Osama bin Laden who were planning a big operation. These Mossad operatives also suspected Iraqi involvement. They provided no names or other pertinent details. Credibility is extremely questionable considering that Osama and Saddam were bitter enemies. This appeared to be planted propaganda rather than actual “intelligence”.

In spite of numerous forewarnings from many sources – nothing was done. One need only “google” the two phrases: forewarnings and 11 September 2001 to find a myriad of information about this. One can only question why. Why wouldn’t a government take every precaution to protect the country they have sworn allegiance to? If no precautions were taken, we must assume that our leaders have a higher allegiance to another cause.

Most of us will remember exactly how we spent that day and recall the minute that we became aware of what had happened on 11 September 2001. It was orchestrated and carried out with the greatest precision. The right people in the right places were necessary to carry out this event.
