Open Letter to Kevin Ryan about Israel and 9/11

April 18, 2016


Kevin Ryan avoids the evidence of Israeli involvement in 9/11 in his book Another Nineteen.  In my open letter to Ryan, I ask him why.

During my recent tour I was often given books by friends and supporters. I have been busy reading them since I returned and just finished Another Nineteen:  Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects by Kevin Robert Ryan. 

Ryan fails to mention Israeli actors when they should be mentioned, and ignores the importance of the Israeli role when it is mentioned. 

When, for example, discussing the findings of the Congressional report on the Iran-Contra affair, Ryan wrote: "Hamilton's report mentioned that the missiles (for Iran) "were sold from Israeli stock with U.S. approval," but says nothing about what this means about the central role played by Israeli intelligence in arming Iran during the whole Iran-Contra affair. How can that be ignored?

Later, Ryan briefly mentions the Israeli company that handled passenger screening at Boston's Logan Airport on 9/11: 

United Airlines contractor Huntleigh USA Corporation performed the screening of passengers related to Flight 175. Huntleigh was bought out in 1999 by the Israeli company ICTS International.

That is all he says about the Mossad-run company that was headed by a convicted Israeli criminal from the Likud party named Menachem Atzmon. This blatant omission leaves the reader with the impression that ICTS is just another Israeli company. ICTS was, after all, the key defendant in the 9/11 tort litigation, in which every case was settled out of court. 

Why does Kevin Ryan let the Israelis off the hook in his book?  This is what I ask him in the following open letter.

Open Letter to Kevin Ryan about Israel and 9/11

     Dear Kevin,

     I just finished reading your book, which I perused very carefully. You present a lot of good information in this book as you provide your list of nineteen suspects. I think we agree on most things although it does seem that you go out of your way to avoid mentioning the many Israeli suspects.

There are a few points I would like to ask you about:

Michael Chertoff (an Israeli-American dual national), the Asst. Attorney General, who was the official responsible for investigating and prosecuting the 9/11 crimes, is not even mentioned in the book.


As Asst. Attorney General, Michael Chertoff was responsible for the criminal investigation and prosecution of the 9/11 crimes. He oversaw the wholesale destruction of evidence and the F.B.I.'s non-investigation of the crime, which resulted in no prosecution. How can Chertoff not be a suspect in the 9/11 crime and cover-up?

Question: Did you overlook Michael Chertoff or did you think his Israeli nationality and being a son of the Mossad agent Livia Eisen was not significant?

Toward the end of the book you name three "countries that benefited" from the events of 9/11: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the U.A.E. (p. 311-312), while completely omitting any mention of Israel.


LIKE ZIONIST-OWNED CBS NEWS - Kevin Ryan tries to pin the blame for 9/11 on Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the U.A.E., claiming these three nations benefited from the crime, while exonerating Israel - whose leader openly admitted that Israel benefited from 9/11. If Saudi Arabia were truly involved in the planning of 9/11 why would they allow 15 Saudi nationals to be blamed as hijackers? Why would Arabs use their own nationals as patsies in a false-flag attack? 

Question: The omission of Israel being one of the countries that benefited from 9/11 seems to be caused by self-imposed blinders. Five years before your book was published, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Godfather of the War on Terror, said these words, which were published in English shortly thereafter, about how Israel benefited from the 9/11 attacks:

"We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq."
- Benjamin Netanyahu, “Report: Netanyahu says 9/11 terror attacks good for Israel,” Ha’aretz (Israel), April 16, 2008

Kevin, were you unaware of Netanyahu's comments or did you choose to omit them for another reason?

Early on in the book you wrote: "Today, we don't have an alternative to the official conspiracy that spells out how the events of 9/11 could be the result of a conspiracy among insiders." 

Question: Does that mean that you have not read my Solving 9-11 research? My Solving 9-11 books are, in fact, very much "an alternative to the official conspiracy" and were published in book form in early 2012 - one year before your book came out. The first edition of my book was published online years earlier. I have been writing about 9-11 since September 2001 and much of my Solving 9-11 research has been published online and in print since 2001.


The Solving 9-11 books were published in 2012 and contain more than 10 years of Bollyn's original 9-11 research articles starting from September 2001. 

In your book, Israel is only listed three times in the index. On page 312, you wrote: "Israel has also been discussed in terms of the possibility that elements of its government were involved. Unfortunately, such claims are often made without supporting evidence and coherent reasoning."

Do you really think the thesis of Israeli involvement in 9/11 lacks supporting evidence and coherent reasoning?

With all the best wishes,

Christopher Bollyn
