The FBI's Fake Terror Plots and 9-11

Updated December 5, 2011

"Justice is incidental to law and order." 
- J. Edgar Hoover, founding director of the FBI from 1935 to 1972 

The fundamental human desire for justice motivates and unites the Occupy Wall Street movement... 

... a widespread and popular response to gross economic, social, and political injustices perpetrated by an entrenched criminal regime.

The Occupy Wall Street protests that have swept the United States since September 2011 are the result of the growing public awareness of grossly unjust government policies.  With protesters enraged by a range of issues from the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the trillion dollar bail-out of criminal bankers, the Occupy Wall Street protests are evidence that the American public outrage against the corrupt regime in Washington, D.C. is deep and widespread.

The criminal regime that has taken over the U.S. government has done so over time, gradually increasing its control.  For the criminal organization to take control of the government it was first required that they gain control over the agency that investigates and prosecutes criminal activity at the federal level.  This is the U.S. Department of Justice, which includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  The FBI is the agency of the Department of Justice that serves as both a federal criminal investigative body and an internal intelligence agency.  The FBI is specifically authorized to investigate terrorism crimes such as the false-flag terror attacks of 9/11 and the first bombing of the World Trade Center on 26 February 1993.  The FBI has changed a great deal since 9/11 and the days when it was the nation's leading crime-fighting organization.  Currently, the FBI's two top priorities are to protect the United States from terrorist attacks and against foreign intelligence operations and espionage.

While the FBI is the federal agency that is supposed to protect the U.S. from crimes of terrorism and to investigate such crimes when they occur, in reality the FBI plays quite a different role.  For at least two decades, the FBI has actually been involved in creating and causing crimes of fake terrorism.  In the early 1990s, for example, it was revealed that the FBI was deeply involved in the first false-flag terror bombing of the World Trade Center in February 1993.  This bombing was evidently an FBI/Mossad operation that was meant to be interpreted as an act of Muslim terrorism in order to prime the pump of public opinion and impress upon the American public the false notion that Arab terrorists were seeking to destroy the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.

Eight years later, when the false-flag terror attacks of 9/11 destroyed the Twin Towers, the FBI, under the leadership of Assistant Attorney General Michael Chertoff of the Criminal Division, utterly failed in its mission to investigate the crime by allowing the crucial steel from the World Trade Center and other evidence to be hastily removed and destroyed before it could be examined by forensic experts.  This was clearly a criminal act to destroy the evidence to protect the guilty.  Controlling the "non-investigation" and all access to the evidence are two essential requirements necessary to foist a false interpretation of an act of terrorism upon the public.  As the highest federal official responsible for prosecuting the crimes of terrorism, Michale Chertoff allowed the most crucial evidence to be destroyed in order to protect the real culprits.  With such a record of complicity, incompetence, and of having actually created numerous fake plots of terrorism, it is clearly Michael Chertoff, the FBI, and the Department of Justice that need to be investigated if we are to end the fraudulent nightmare known as the "War on Terror".

Chertoff told the author that he does not know who authorized the destruction of the crucial evidence from the World Trade Center although the FBI, under his command, led the 9/11 investigation.

"The target, the motive, the ideology and the plot were all led by the FBI." 
- Karen Greenberg, a law professor who studies FBI tactics, on the Newburgh Four "terror plot".

"The fact that it was all fake really doesn't matter." 
- David Raskin, lead prosecutor of Newburgh Four

"Ahmad Ajaj, a 27-year-old West Bank Palestinian being held in federal custody for conspiring to bomb the World Trade Center, may have been a Mossad mole, according to Israeli intelligence sources."
- "Mossad Linked To WTC Bomb Suspect", Village Voice, 3 August 1993

"...we was start already building the bomb which is went off in the World Trade Center. It was built by supervising supervision from the Bureau and the DA and we was all informed about it and we know that the bomb start to be built. By who? By your confidential informant. What a wonderful great case!" 
-FBI Informant Emad Salem to FBI Special Agent John Anticev

FBI Special Agent Robert Fuller was the direct supervisor of Shahed Hussain, the FBI informant who was the government's main witness against the Newburgh Four.

It should be noted that the mainstream media has reported about the FBI's role in numerous acts of fake terror going back at least as far as the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center, which killed 6 and injured more than 1,000.  Given the bureau's long record of involvement in fake terror plots and its role in the criminal destruction of crucial evidence from 9/11, it is quite clear that the FBI must be investigated by an outside agency.

The Guardian newspaper of Britain recently published 
an article, as part of a series of articles about the FBI practice of creating fake terror plots using paid informants.  This latest article is about the Newburgh Four, a group of four black men with criminal records who were entrapped by an FBI informant in a fake terror plot to bomb a Jewish synagogue in the Bronx:

So it was perhaps no surprise that in May, 2009, David Williams was arrested again and hit with a 25-year jail sentence. But it was not for drugs offences. Or any other common crime. Instead Williams and three other struggling local men beset by drug, criminal and mental health issues were convicted of an Islamic terrorist plot to blow up Jewish synagogues and shoot down military jets with missiles.

Even more shocking was that the organisation, money, weapons and motivation for this plot did not come from real Islamic terrorists. It came from the FBI, and an informant paid to pose as a terrorist mastermind paying big bucks for help in carrying out an attack. For McWilliams, her own government had actually cajoled and paid her beloved nephew into being a terrorist, created a fake plot and then jailed him for it. "I feel like I am in the Twilight Zone," she told the Guardian.

The FBI's practice of creating fake terror plots using paid informants was first revealed by Emad Salem, the Egyptian intelligence agent who was paid $1 million to serve as an FBI informant during the first bombing of the World Trade Center.  As Salem revealed by secretly taping his conversations with FBI agents, the bureau was involved in creating the bomb and could have prevented the explosion at the World Trade Center - if it had wanted to.  The FBI decision to allow the 1993 WTC bombing to go ahead indicates that people at the FBI were involved in the terrorism plot that resulted in 9/11.  The transcripts that revealed the FBI's involvement in the first bombing were published in the New York Times and Village Voice at the time and even reported by Dan Rather on the CBS nightly news in October 1993.

Michael Chertoff, the Israeli-American dual national and son of the Mossad who supervised the FBI's destruction of evidence from the 9/11 terror attacks, was involved in the first bombing of the World Trade Center as the U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, where the key evidence used in the prosecution was found.  While Janet Reno, the new U.S. Attorney General under President Bill Clinton, called for the resignations of all the U.S. Attorneys at the end of March 1993, a peculiar exception was made for Michael Chertoff, who was asked to stay in his position in New Jersey until the end of 1993.  Chertoff was kept on in his position in order to manage the investigation and prosecution, just as he did after the 9/11 attacks.  It should be noted that the acting Attorney General at the time of the bombing was Stuart Michael Gerson, who was replaced by Janet Reno on 19 March 1993.  Gerson is currently a member of the law firm of Epstein, Becker and Green.
