(Excerpted from Chapter 20: 911: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)
On the morning of September 11, 2001, two American and two United airliners were hijacked after departing East Coast airports. At 8:30 AM the first plane crashed into the south tower of the New York World Trade Center (WTC).
Within the hour, another smashed into the north tower, while a third allegedly hit the Pentagon. The fourth crashed into a Pennsylvania field. Within the next hour both WTC towers, along with WTC #7, had collapsed into rubble. Over 2,500 were dead and Americans everywhere recited the collective mantra, “Things will never be the same”.
Actually things had changed very little. Fifteen of the nineteen alleged hijackers were born in Saudi Arabia, where the House of Saud dictatorship has financed Muslim Brotherhood Assassins and CIA covert operations since its inception for the benefit of the Eight Families and their Four Horsemen- whose ARAMCO oilfields are protected via US military occupation of the Kingdom.
The Assassins this time were members of al Qaeda, the cadre of former Afghan mujahadeen fighters which the CIA trained, then used to carry out proxy wars in Bosnia, Kosovo, Albania, Macedonia, Chechnya, Dagestan, Indian Kashmir, East Turkistan Province in China, Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Somalia, Algeria and Uzbekistan. The CIA brought al Qaeda spiritual leader and Sadat assassin Sheik Abdul Rahman to the US to recruit Islamic fundamentalists willing to fight in these CIA wars. 
Al Qaeda is headed by Osama bin Laden, who built many of the CIA’s mujahadeen training camps in Afghanistan. Bin Laden was House of Saud point man in recruiting Arab fighters for CIA shenanigans in Central Asia and the Balkans. Bin Laden’s brother Salem was a business partner and good friend of James Bath. His father Mohammed provided seed money for Bush’s Arbusto Energy. The bin Laden family fortune was managed by Carlyle Group where George Bush Sr. worked.
According to a PBS spokeswomen, within three days of 911 both Vice-President Dick Cheney and Queen Elizabeth II called PBS to request copies of two video documentaries the station had done – one on bin Laden and the other on Islam. Since US intelligence knew all it needed to know of their foot soldier bin Laden, Cheney and Her Majesty were more concerned with what the US public had already been told of the Saudi paymaster so they could factor this into their forthcoming public relations blitz.
Bin Laden’s second in command was Ayman al-Zawahiri who heads Egyptian Islamic Jihad- a Muslim Brotherhood front- whose Assassins had help from CIA in escaping justice in Egypt so they could go to Albania to fight with the Kosovo Liberation Army. Al-Zawahiri’s sidekick Ali Mohammed came to the US in 1984. He trained terrorists in Brooklyn and Jersey City on weekends and instructed US Special Forces at Fort Bragg.  He was later involved in the US Embassy bombings in Africa. According to the FBI, five of the nineteen alleged hijackers who carried out the 911 attacks were trained by the US military- three at Pensacola Naval Air Station and two at other facilities. 
Alleged 911 ring leader Mohammed Atta received the $100,000 he needed to plan and carry out the terror attacks from Standard Chartered accounts in gold bullion haven Dubai- where US Naval vessels often berth. Standard Chartered was founded by the Illuminated Cecil Rhodes, is a London “gold-fixer” and prints Hong Kong’s currency. The accounts were controlled by 911 paymaster and UAE citizen Mustafa Ahmed al-Hawsawi. According to British MP Michael Meacher in an article for The Guardian, M16 recruited up to 200 British Muslims to fight in Afghanistan and Yugoslavia. Meacher says a Dehli-based foundation describes Omar Saeed Sheikh- the man who beheaded US journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002- as a British agent. He says it was Sheikh who, at the behest of Pakistani ISI General Mahmood Ahmed, wired $100,000 to Mohammed Atta before 911, a fact confirmed by Dennis Lomel- director of FBI’s financial crimes unit.  An October 11, 2001 article in The Times of India verifies this.
At a June 25, 2002 conference in Calgary, University of Ottawa Economics Professor Michel Chossudovsky and former Los Angeles police officer Michael Ruppert corroborated this information based on ABC News reports. They added that ISI Chief Ahmad was in Washington on September 4, 2001 meeting with CIA Director George Tenet, Assistant Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Senator Joe Biden (D-DE) and the heads of two Congressional intelligence committees.  The New York Times reported on February 17, 2002 that the two Congressmen Ahmed met with were Joint Senate Intelligence Committee Co-Chairs Florida Senators Bob Graham and Porter Goss, the latter a former CIA operative who was appointed Bush Jr. CIA Director in 2004.
When President Clinton and his Defense Secretary Cohen pressed UAE officials to crack down on the al Qaeda money shuffle, a senior UAE sheik told them it was difficult to discern between the criminal money and that going to fight CIA proxy wars in Bosnia and Chechnya. 
Ruppert cited a BBC report by Gregg Palast, which details how the Bush Administration ordered curtailment of an FBI investigation of the bin Laden family. Minneapolis FBI whistle-blower Colleen Rowley and Robert Wright- who worked for the bureau in Chicago- described the same unnamed superior who “obstructed”, “deliberately thwarted” and “intimidated” their attempts to track down US-based al Qaeda operatives. Wright was investigating an al Qaeda money laundering ring based in Chicago which may have been plugged into the Nugan Hand/Bank of Cicero/CIA/P-2 black network which bases in Chicago- often disguising its dirty transactions via the freewheeling Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
Chossudovsky stated his belief that 911 served the US in its quest to control both Central Asian oil supplies and the Afghan opium trade. He told the Calgary crowd, “Osama bin Laden is and remains to this day a CIA asset. Even now his al Qaeda operatives are working with the Kosovo Liberation Army who are US allies and with the US-backed forces in Macedonia. Members of al Qaeda have been protected as they moved into Kashmir where they are now fomenting conflict between India and Pakistan.” He also noted that Vienna, VA-based spook outfit MPRI- which trained the Bosnian rebel army- serves as military adviser to both Pakistan and India and would benefit financially from a war between those nations, a war which he believes is being fomented by a mysteriously at-large Osama bin Laden and his ilk.
Many of the alleged hijackers were in the country on legitimate US visas. Most were issued at the US consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. According to Mike Springmann, Chief of the Visa Section at Jeddah during the late 1980’s, CIA officials ran roughshod over the visa operation, often overruling Springmann’s decisions not to issue visas to people he considered dangerous. Often CIA officials would stamp the questionable applicants’ visas themselves in clear violation of US law. 
Bush blocked Secret Service investigations into US-based al-Qaeda terrorist “sleeper” cells while he continued to negotiate secretly with Afghan Taliban officials. The last meeting, headed by Bush NSA and former Unocal official Zalmay Khalilzad, was in August 2001 just five weeks before the terror attacks.  The Unocal-led consortium offered the Taliban, through current Afghan President Hamid Kharzai, $100 million to run its natural gas pipeline from Turkmenistan to the Indian Ocean. The Bush team offered additional aid to the Taliban, whom they’d already given over $132 million in 2001, and told them, “You either accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you under a carpet of bombs.”
Considering the history of CIA/Four Horsemen/Eight Families treachery in the Middle East and the toll these schemes have taken on the Arab world, one could easily interpret 911 as an Arab response to US imperialism. The trouble is, that explanation defies the facts.
Mohammed Atta’s father, a prominent Cairo physician, said his son was afraid of flying and insists that he was not a trained pilot. Atta believes his son was kidnapped and made a patsy by the Israeli Mossad. He believes Israelis used his son and the other 18 Arabs’ identities as cover to carry out the 911 plot because this would turn Americans against the Arab world, enhance the Israeli bargaining position vis-à-vis the Palestinians and draw the US further into the Middle Eastern cauldron. Atta’s father stated, “This was done by Mossad using American pilots.”
Lending credence to the doctor’s charges is the assertion that the official passenger flight logs for all four American and United flights which became fuel-air bombs on 911 listed no Arab passengers.  The Dallas Morning News reported that in July 2001 a federal task force pulled the plug on over 500 Arab websites in the US when they raided InfoCom Corporation in Texas. Did the Feds want to silence cyber-chat concerning the actual whereabouts of the “hijackers”? Reports emerged from the Arab world that many of them had been sighted after 911. Some were even interviewed by Al Jazeera.
According to Daniel Hopsicker, who wrote Welcome to Terrorland…, Mohamed Atta began working for the US government in Hamburg in 1992. He was later enrolled in an elite officer training course at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, AL. Hopsicker says Atta had pilot licenses from six countries and wonders why, except to establish a paper trail, he would even have needed to attend flight school.  Atta spoke Hebrew, snorted coke and lived with a stripper. He met with various German and Swiss nationals just prior to 911 and was part of an email discussion on the Middle East that included numerous employees of US defense contractors. Atta and up to seven other 911 hijackers had received flight training at US military facilities. Atta was part of an elite international exchange program run by the American/German Congress-Bundestag Program- an organization with close ties to both David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger. The group funded Atta trips to Istanbul, Cairo and Damascus; where Atta played Islamic fundamentalist, possibly in the role of infiltrator. 
Rep. Curt Weldon (R-PA) wrote in his 2005 book that two weeks after 911 he presented the Administration with a chart showing that Atta and other hijackers were being monitored as part of the Pentagon’s Able Danger program. In September 2006 the Pentagon Inspector General put out a statement denying Atta’s existence on this chart. An infuriated Weldon stated, “I am appalled that the DOD IG would expect the American people to actually consider this a full and thorough investigation”. 
The Florida flight school where the 911 hijackers trained was Huffman Aviation- co-owned by Wally Hilliard, a friend of Bill Clinton, and Rudy Dekkers, who met with Atta less than one month prior to 911. One Huffman employee told Hopsicker, “Early on I gleaned that these guys (the hijackers) had government protection…They were let into the country for a specific purpose. It was a business deal.”
Huffman’s hangar at Venice Airport is used to maintain the planes of Caribe Air, a known CIA-front airline which had twenty of its planes seized by federal authorities at Mena, AR after they were found to have curried billions of dollars worth of cocaine. Hopsicker says Caribe could also be tied to Enron, since many of that now-defunct company’s Caribbean tax shelters had the word “Caribe” in their name.
