Excerpted from Chapter 20: 911: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)
Ex-Naval Intelligence officer William Cooper- author of Behold a Pale Horse- did a radio talk show in Phoenix in October 2001.
Cooper had lost both his legs when he was run off the road after exposing various elements of the Illuminati plans for New World Order. Now he suggested CIA and Israeli Mossad involvement in 911, naming Mossad operative Josie Hadas as handler for the Arab patsies involved in the hijackings. Internet and cable feeds from the broadcast were immediately cut. A few days later Cooper was gunned down at 1:00 AM in his home by Maricopa County deputies. 
While Bush propagandists hammered home the “Arab terrorist” thesis, serving up photos of 911 “hijackers” within hours and conveniently “finding” Mohamed Atta’s passport in the WTC rubble, several US agencies were quietly tracking down leads concerning Mossad spy rings active in the US on and since 911. Israelis had been detained in Detroit, Albuquerque and an unnamed West Coast city. A Ryder truck full of Israelis was caught casing Whidbey Island Naval Station in Washington. According to a May 13, 2002 Fox News report, he truck tested positive for TNT and RDX military-grade explosives. US intelligence also investigated a mysterious ring of “Israeli art students” who had infiltrated US law enforcement facilities and military bases for the past two years.
In early 2002 a group of Israelis was stopped in a Philadelphia suburb in a truck containing surveillance footage of the Sears Tower in Chicago. On 911 a group of five Israelis were detained in Hoboken, NJ for suspicious behavior.  The Jewish weekly Forward fingered them as Mossad agents. ABC News reported in June 2002 that a woman with an apartment near ground zero witnessed several Israelis in a white van videotaping the planes as they hit the WTC and celebrating the event. Der Spiegel reported that a group of Mossad agents had rented an apartment near the one used by alleged 911 hijackers Mohammed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi in Hollywood, FL just prior to 911. The Israelis conducted round-the-clock surveillance on the flight schools where Atta and al-Shehhi trained and neglected to inform US intelligence of their presence or of their activities.
Could Osama bin Laden- apparently alive and well- still be working for CIA and Mossad, as University of Ottawa Economics Professor Michel Chossudovsky has stated? According to John Trochmann of the Militia of Montana, bin Laden carries a “CIA-issue RC 58 Harris satellite phone” and his family was a primary backer of the CIA’s Iridium satellite tracking consortium. Did the CIA and Mossad deploy nineteen modern-day mind-controlled Assassins, of which fifteen just happened to be from the Muslim Brotherhood Kingdom of Saudi Arabia- whose point man in funding the Afghan mujahadeen, which constitute the core of al Qaeda, was CIA agent Osama bin Laden?
What did 911 fall guy Zaccarias Mousaui mean when he told the judge at his July 25, 2002 arraignment that he was not involved in 911, but that the US government had another person in custody who was involved and that “the government knew all about 911 plans” before the tragedy took place? Why did the CIA refuse to hand over a key al Qaeda operative to the Mousaui prosecution? What don’t they want him to tell the court?
Did the CIA- using its Carlyle Group channel headed by ex-CIA Director George Bush- hatch this brutal attack to further insert US forces into Central Asia to protect the Four Horsemen Caspian Sea black goldmine, giving Israeli butchers another pretext in their occupation of Palestinian lands and promoting a new Clash of Civilizations WWIII Crusade against pesky nationalist Muslims- beginning with an invasion of oil-rich Iraq? What of the timing of the bin Laden family investments via Carlyle? Is Osama really the black sheep of the bin Laden family?
According to the French newspaper Le Figaro, the CIA met with Osama bin Laden on numerous occasions in the months before 911. In July 2001 bin Laden underwent kidney treatment at the American Hospital in Dubai, where he was visited frequently by a CIA agent. He was also visited regularly by his Saudi extended family, who apparently had not disowned Osama as Western media had us believe.
According to the Washington Post, Qazi Hussein Ahmed- leader of the Pakistan-based Jamiaat-i-Islami which helped create the Taliban- visited CIA at Langley in July 2001. Why, the Village Voice queried, was Taliban leader Mullah Mohammed Omar’s emissary to Washington Rahmattulah Hashami rebuffed by the Bush State Department when he promised in summer 2001 to hold onto bin Laden until the CIA could apprehend him? Why, Vanity Fair asked, had the CIA turned down a similar offer from Sudan?
Newsweek wondered why top-ranking Pentagon officials suddenly canceled flight plans for September 10th? The Wall Street Journal questioned the timing of Saudi Defense Minister Prince Sultan’s canceling of a mid-September trip to Japan and wondered why Prince Turki al-Faisal- Sheik Kamal Adham’s nephew and his successor at Saudi Intelligence- who was especially cozy with the Taliban and met with Osama bin Laden regularly, suddenly resigned his post of 25 years on August 31, 2001?
While Unocal adviser and Afghan President Hamid Karzai huddled with Unocal official and Bush Afghan envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, US Ambassador to Pakistan Wendy Chamberlain busied herself meeting with Pakistan’s Oil Minister Usman Aminuddin and her Saudi counterparts to plan the new Turkmenistan-Indian Ocean trans-Afghan pipeline. In 2005 Unocal was bought by Chevron Texaco, assuring Four Horsemen control over the recently completed pipeline.
On November 28, 2001 the Bush White House quietly celebrated the official opening of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium pipeline- the Bechtel-built Mossad-guarded pipeline through Turkey to the Black Sea. Bush stated, “The CPC project also advances my Administration’s energy policy by developing a network of pipelines that includes Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan, Baku-Supsa and Baku-Novorossiysk.”
Bush’s closest confidant at the White House was said to be Condaleeza Rice, who sat on Chevron’s board before becoming a Stanford University expert on Central Asia and Kazakhstan. Did Bush bring Rice on board knowing US troops would soon headed to Central Asia? Was it mere coincidence that Uzbekistan, which Trilateral Commission founder and BP Amoco board member Brzezinski identified as the key country in his global chess game, was suddenly receiving US bases? Why did US military exercises begin in the region months before 911?
The Guardian of London reported that US Army Rangers were training in Afghan neighbor Kyrgyzstan in the summer of 2001. There were Montana media reports of Uzbek and Tajik troops training in Alaska and Montana prior to 911. In early September 2001 the British deployed thousands of troops to Oman under the guise of Operation Swift Sword, while the US sent 17,000 troops to Egypt, ostensibly to take part in Operation Bright Star. Were these forward troops deployed in anticipation of wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?
A July 2001 meeting in Berlin attended by former US Ambassador to Pakistan Tom Simmons, former Assistant Secretary of State for South Asian Affairs Karl Inderfurth and former State Department South Asian expert Lee Coldren involved Russian and Pakistani intelligence officials. According to Michael Rupert, the US delegation informed their Pakistani and Russian counterparts of US plans to bomb Afghanistan come October 2001. 
Canadian Vision Television discussed the US Central Asian agenda on its January 28, 2002 program Insight Media File, which suggested CIA involvement in the 911 attacks. US Naval Intelligence Officer Lieutenant Delmart Vreeland had alerted Canadian authorities to the possibility of terror attacks on the US and Canada. Vreeland was en route to Russia and China to retrieve documents relating to Russian and Chinese responses to the US missile defense program.
Vreeland was detained by Canadian authorities and jailed. His 8-11-01 prison letter specifically mentions the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the White House, the Sears Tower, the Royal Bank of Canada and the Ottawa Parliament as possible terrorist targets in the “days ahead”. His letter said the plan was to, “Let one happen. Stop the rest.” The letter was admitted as evidence for the defense by a Canadian court. The US Defense Department has confirmed Vreeland’s rank. 
Despite Vreeland’s warning and those of numerous governments around the world, on 911 the Air Force National Guard was ordered to stand down from standard procedure of intercepting any plane that strays from its designed flight path, much less jumbo jets flying towards the World Trade Center and Pentagon. While much political hay was made by Bush cronies about last-ditch failed attempts to scramble fighters to shoot down the planes, the fact is that fighters should have automatically intercepted those planes.
Someone in the Executive Branch had to have ordered those planes to stand down. Even when token jets were scrambled, they flew from Otis Air National Guard Base in Falmouth, MA and Langley Air Base in Hampton, VA. Meanwhile two combat-ready squadrons- the 121st Fighter Squadron of the 113th Fighter Wing and the 321st Marine Fighter Attack Squadron- sat grounded at Andrews Air Force Base, a mere fifteen miles from the Pentagon.
According to an August 22, 2002 AP story a “top US intelligence agency was planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant aircraft would crash into one of its buildings”. The Washington Post reported on September 16, 2001 that American Flight 77, which allegedly crashed into the Pentagon, was piloted by Charles Burlingame, whose previous job was as F-4 fighter pilot for the US Navy. In this capacity Burlingame drafted an emergency response plan to the crashing of a plane into the Pentagon. The morning Burlingame’s plane apparently did just that, Pentagon medic Matt Rosenberg was studying Burlingame’s draft in Corridor 8 of the building.
Dick Cheney would have been in charge of the planned 911 “exercise”, since on May 8, 2001 he had been named by Bush to head the Office of Domestic Preparedness (ODP), which would identify US vulnerabilities to domestic terrorism. Cheney’s ODP was running four different exercises on 911: Operation Northern Guardian, Operation Vigilant Guardian, Operation Vigilant Warrior and Operation Northern Vigilance.
The latter removed all fighter jets from the East Coast and sent them to Canada and Alaska. The first two simulated hijackings of commercial airliners in the Northeast. The third may have been the strike component. NORAD was briefed to expect these exercises. That morning their radars showed twenty-two hijacked planes.  They didn’t know which ones were really hijacked and which ones were part of the “exercise”.
On September 10, 2001 members of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees leaked a memo which alleged lead hijacker Mohammed Atta sent to the man which US intelligence now deems the “mastermind” of 911- Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. The memo used language which one would associate with a military exercise, stating that “the match is about to begin. Tomorrow is ‘zero hour’.” Cheney was outraged that the memo had been leaked and ordered the FBI to investigate members of the Congressional committees. All information regarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammad is still classified.
