The Computer Crimes of 9/11: How Critical U.S. Airport Computers Were Compromised with Israeli Spyware
November 7, 2016
Israeli Transtech Control "Airfield Management" software provided by a senior Israeli spymaster was running on the computer systems of many of the airports and U.S. Air Force bases involved in the events of 9/11.
"The deathly precision" and "magnitude of planning" behind the 9-11 attacks would have needed "years of planning." Such a sophisticated operation would require the "fixed frame" of a state intelligence organization, something not found in a "loose group" of terrorists like the one allegedly led by Mohammed Atta while he studied in Hamburg.
- Eckart Werthebach, former president of German intelligence service to Christopher Bollyn, December 2001
"It's really a big breakthrough to have a company from Israel controlling so many airports."

When former German intelligence chief Eckhart Werthebach told me in 2001 that the 9/11 terror attacks would have needed “years of planning" and required the “fixed frame" of a state intelligence organization, it raised two obvious questions: Which state intelligence organization would plan and carry-out such a false-flag terror atrocity? And why?

As the evidence I present in the Solving 9-11 set of books reveals, Israeli military intelligence is the prime suspect of being the state-run organization behind the atrocity that ushered in the fraudulent War on Terror. The men who have controlled Israeli military intelligence since the inception of the War on Terror ideology would, therefore, be chief among the suspected masterminds of the false-flag terrorism of 9/11.
Major General Shlomo Gazit is one of the suspected masterminds. As former director of Israeli military intelligence (DMI, 1974-79) Gazit restructured the signal intelligence and cyber-espionage agency he oversaw in the wake of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Following his term as DMI, Gazit went on to participate in the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism, the propaganda offensive that launched the War on Terror in July 1979.
Shlomo Gazit (1926– ) Born in Istanbul, Turkey, Gazit immigrated to Palestine in 1933. During the early 1960s, Gazit was representative of Military Intelligence (MI) in Paris. After returning to Israel in 1964 (after JFK assassination), Gazit headed the Research Department of MI until 1967. Following the Six-Day War he became the first coordinator of Israeli government operations in the occupied territories. After the Yom Kippur War, Gazit was director of MI from 1974 to 1979.
Seven years later, Gazit, the man who had reformed the super-secret agency that creates Israeli spyware, started a company that provided Israeli control software to scores of U.S. airports and Air Force bases. Gazit is the key person who connected Israel's military spyware with some of the airports involved in the events of 9/11.
1979 - THE PROPAGANDA OFFENSIVE
The War on Terror ideology was rolled out onto the world stage in a well-planned propaganda offensive in July 1979, headed by Menachem Begin, the notorious Zionist terrorist. Begin's propaganda event was hosted by the Jonathan (Netanyahu) Institute, an organization set up by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father for the purpose of promoting the War on Terror ideology.
Benjamin Netanyahu and his father Benzion, born Mileikowsky in Warsaw, Poland, arranged the Jerusalem Conference with Menachem Begin in 1979 that heralded the beginning of the propaganda offensive behind the War on Terror.
"The conference organizers expect the event to initiate a major anti-terrorist offensive," Ian Black wrote in the Jerusalem Post after the first day of the conference.
"The use of the military term 'offensive' is accurate," Philip Paull wrote in his 1982 thesis "International Terrorism": The Propaganda War. "Four former chiefs of Israeli military intelligence participated in the conference: Gen. Chaim Herzog, Maj. Gen. Meir Amit, Lt. Gen. Aharon Yariv, and Maj. Gen. Shlomo Gazit."
The fact that the four former chiefs of Israel's Directorate of Military Intelligence attended the three-day conference indicates they were involved in the planning and preparation of this "propaganda offensive."
Shlomo Gazit had just concluded a five-year term as DMI in February 1979. Israel’s DMI oversees Aman, an independent military intelligence body of the Israel Defense Forces which has its own special commando forces and field-reconnaissance unit, the Sayeret Matkal, and its own intelligence collection agency, Unit 8200.
UNIT 8200 – ISRAEL’S SPYWARE AGENCY
Unit 8200, the central military intelligence agency and largest unit of the Israeli Defense Force, is responsible for collecting signal intelligence and code decryption.
In 1974, after Israel was caught off guard by invasions from Egypt and Syria in 1973, Shlomo Gazit was assigned to reform the intelligence agency, which he renamed Unit 8200. One of Gazit’s reforms made the spy agency completely departmentalized, so that various teams in the unit wouldn’t know what other teams were doing.
"While Israel’s Mossad spy agency is as legendary as 8200 is anonymous, '90 percent of the intelligence material in Israel is coming from 8200,' says Yair Cohen, who served 33 years in 8200 – the last five (from 2001-2005) as its commander.'There isn’t a major operation, from the Mossad or any intelligence security agency, that 8200 is not involved in.'" Richard Behar reported in "Inside Israel's Secret Startup Machine" in Forbes.
Yair Cohen was the commander of Unit 8200 when 9/11 occurred. Cohen is head of intelligence and cyber solutions at Elbit Systems Ltd., an Israeli company with a history of involvement in U.S. elections.
Unit 8200 is comparable in function to the National Security Agency in the United States, an agency whose data collection Unit 8200 seems to have complete access to.
Robert David Steele, a former CIA case officer, told Christopher Ketcham, author of "An Israeli Trojan Horse," that "Israeli penetration of the entire US telecommunications system means that NSA's warrantless wiretapping actually means Israeli warrantless wiretapping."
Ketcham explains how that is:
Since the late 1990s, federal agents have reported systemic communications security breaches at the Department of Justice, FBI, DEA, the State Department, and the White House. Several of the alleged breaches, these agents say, can be traced to two hi-tech communications companies, Verint Inc. (formerly Comverse Infosys), and Amdocs Ltd., that respectively provide major wiretap and phone billing/record-keeping software contracts for the U.S. government. Together, Verint and Amdocs form part of the backbone of the government’s domestic intelligence surveillance technology. Both companies are based in Israel – having arisen to prominence from that country’s cornering of the information technology market – and are heavily funded by the Israeli government, with connections to the Israeli military and Israeli intelligence.

THE FRAUDULENT WAR ON TERROR
The Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism in July 1979 is the event that marks the birth of the fraudulent War on Terror. Philip Paull, who studied the propaganda offensive that began with the conference concluded, "The entire notion of 'international terrorism' as promoted by the Jerusalem Conference rests on a faulty, dishonest, and ultimately corrupt information base."
The fact that Menachem Begin, the prime minister and founder of the Likud party, headed the committee that organized the conference and that four former directors of Israeli military intelligence participated, indicates that this deceptive propaganda offensive to push the War on Terror stratagem had been planned at the highest level of the Israeli government and military intelligence.
"The Father of Terrorism" Menachem Begin was the Israeli prime minister who arranged the 1979 propaganda offensive behind the War on Terror. Since 1979, Benjamin Netanyahu has been the leading advocate of the War on Terror.
It is also clear that the Jerusalem conference was just the beginning of the Zionist war agenda that we know as the Global War on Terror. In the years following the conference, Benjamin Netanyahu produced a series of books in which he called for the United States and its allies to deploy their militaries in the Middle East to wage war against "terrorist" groups and the nations that host them.
The Israeli plan to make the War on Terror operational called for an act of catastrophic terrorism to occur in the United States. A spectacular act of terrorism would be needed to sway political and public opinion behind supporting a massive U.S. military intervention in the Middle East.
Images of the aircraft said to be United Airlines Flight 175 impacting the South Tower
As we can see from The Medusa Touch, a 1978 film made by Arnon Milchan, a senior Israeli intelligent agent, the idea of crashing large passenger aircraft into high-rise towers was evidently running through the minds of the Israeli terrorism planners prior to the Jerusalem conference.
Israeli intelligence agent Arnon Milchan's first film featured a passenger aircraft flying into a high-rise tower - in 1978.
The fact that the Israeli plan was to attack the tallest towers in New York City was then leaked by Isser Harel, the former spymaster and head of the Mossad, in comments he made in 1980 to Michael Evans, an American Zionist.
With the understanding that an Israeli plan was in the works to launch the War on Terror by using aircraft to attack high-rise towers in New York City, it is very interesting to look at what Shlomo Gazit did after he retired as director of Israeli military intelligence in 1979.
After leaving his position as DMI, Shlomo Gazit moved to Boston, where he was a visiting fellow at Harvard's Center for International Affairs for one year. As The Harvard Crimson reported in October 1979, "Major General Shlomo Gazit says he left his post as head of Israeli Military Intelligence to come to Harvard because 'I felt tired and felt in urgent need for recharging my batteries.'"
Gazit left Harvard in 1980 and returned to Israel, where he became president of Ben Gurion University from 1981-1985. He also served as the director-general of the Jewish Agency from 1985-1988 and as a senior research fellow at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University from 1988.
What is most interesting is that in 1986, Shlomo Gazit co-founded (with Simcha Ohrenstein) a company called Transtech Control Ltd., which develops and markets control and monitoring software systems for airports. Transtech offers products for airfield visual navigation aids and airfield operational elements. The company provides software and services to airports worldwide. Transtech’s headquarters and R&D facilities are located in Herzliya, Israel. Gazit is the chief technology officer for the company, responsible for research and development of the software the company provides. Transtech Control Ltd. owns two subsidiaries: Transtech Airport Solutions Inc., in Windsor, Connecticut, which oversees customer technical support, sales, and marketing; and Calsys, located in Ashkelon, Israel, which develops the distributed airport radar.
As the Jerusalem Post reported on Transtech in 2004:
When Transtech Control was founded by Ohrenstein and Shlomo Gazit (the company's CTO) in 1986, most people told them that a small Israeli company had no chance to break into the extremely conservative US airport control market. Even today, the industry is dominated by just a few giants. Ohrenstein and Gazit ignored their critics, however, and today - 15 years on - Transtech's control systems can be found in 120 airports across the world, including Beijing and JFK, San Francisco, Denver and LA.
"It's really a big breakthrough to have a company from Israel controlling so many airports," says Ohrenstein, 53. "We've become a world leader in this niche."
As Chief Technology Officer and the Vice President for Research & Development, Gazit is the person who connected the agency that produces spyware Israeli software to the computer networks at scores of airports across the United States, including critical U.S. military bases, in 2001.
Transtech’s client list in 2003 (the earliest list available online) shows that the Israeli control software was being used at dozens of U.S. airports, civilian and military. Among the airports listed in 2003 are a few noteworthy ones: Newark, Holloman Air Force Base (AFB), Tinker AFB, Hill AFB, Davis Monthan AFB, Fort Hood Airport, Edwards AFB, Seymour Johnson AFB, Otis AFB, Little Rock AFB, Fort Knox, Pope AFB, Johnstown Airport, Altus AFB, Fort Bliss, Westover AFB, and Pease AFB.
The fact that the Transtech control software running on the computer networks of these airports came from an Israeli spymaster who had managed the military intelligence agency that creates spyware leads me to think that the software he provided had secret spyware functions which were exploited on 9/11.
As a 2005 FBI report states: "Israel has an active program to gather proprietary information within the United States. These collection activities are primarily directed at obtaining information on military systems and advanced computing applications that can be used in Israel’s sizable armaments industry." A key Israeli method, warns the FBI report, is computer intrusion.
What better way to gain access to a computer network than to have your own spyware running on it?
