The following is from Investigate Magazine October 2000 Ben Vidgen Ian Wishart (my fact Ian’s conclusions).
“In February of 1993 the World Trade Centre in New York was torn apart by a massive explosion. Several Muslim extremists linked to Osama bin Laden were later convicted….Two years later, US investigators caught wind of a plot by Osama Bin Laden supporters to plant bombs on 12 airliners over the Pacific Ocean, set to explode almost simultaneously.Although the plan was foiled, those responsible remain at large”.
The Plot was Operation Bojinka if you read the full details it becomes clear at the VERY LEAST they had enough information to know the style of the attack, the group involved (Yousef Ramzi was not so much an idelogical terrorist but in 1995 was described by the late Benizhir Bhutto [see foot notes in my article State of Terror Nexus 1995] as controlled by those not so much interested in Islam but Oil. This is the same reason given for John O’neil for leaving the FBI via his frustration at “oil politics” which prevented him doing his job. O’neil, who identified NY as the next target,died on September 11th on his first day on the job as head of security for the twin towers
As for the logic of the building collapsing read the rest of this artile them come back and let the late great Rik Mayall give you a lesson in simple physics and logic.
At time of 9/11 I like wise believed something was up following a July 23rd article in the Dominon reporting the sudden and unexplained withdrawl of 30,000 Syrian troops from Lebanon.
I later learned the Syrian were responding to the Operation Swift Sword and Bright Star which placed about 110,000 Commonwealth and NATO troop on Iraq door step on September 10th. The article stuck out just after learning the NZSAS were deploying offshore and expected and attack from Osama Bin Laden. My source for that claim was Norm Piree who I worked with co managing Pasta Al Dente. Norm was former ‘non badged’ member of the NZSAS.
Thus I found myself at 2:30am on September 11th working on the second chapter of what later became Stae Secrets II (my second book), were I was focusing on the role of the Brooklyn mosque in recuriting Muslim mercenarys for the CIA wars (along with right wing Neo-Nazis funded and armed by the same parties) in the Balkans and the bank Altaqwa in lugarno Switzerland (run by Ahmed Huber an Islamic devotee of Hitler) which proved to have links to the 22 subsidary firm of HSA Yemen who exported NZ dairy products to Iraq, via third parties, as part of the Food For Oil fiasco.
For me my first hand experience via these events show AT THE VERY LEAST the claims the intelligence community had no idea of the threat is simply a lie.
Its a real shame journalists like Patrick Gower and John Campbell dont ask the surviors of Christchurch March 15 attacks their thoughts about 9/11. They might learn a thing or two about how modern terrorism works from those that dont live in the sterilized pakeha version of geopolitics and once educated go and take another look at why Christchurch was our 9/11 and is part of a far larger conflict which I doubt they have the intellect or more precisely the gonads to deal with those implications.
