Ben Vidgen who specialised in counter terrorism as political science student talks (and in 1995 complete 1 30,000 word dissertation on History of Middle eastern & Western European terrorism -overseen by Dr Vincent orange) terrorism and about the lessons of 9/11 visa the need to protect civil liberties abuse and preventing profiteering during a global crisis.
Ben talk about shutting down of the Convar cyber forensic and the story he published in October 2000 The Pacific Jihad warning how civilian aircraft would be used in terror attack and the interview he held with (now a former) Security Intelligence Service Middle Eastern Desk Officer James Adams on terrorism and inside trading.
Vidgen looks at his 1995 article State of Terror where he warned on the rise of right wing terror (identifying in his 1999 best seller State Secrets Gun City owner David Tipple , the man who armed the March 15th Chch shooter’s links to those arming right wing mercenary forces and Islamic militants) and he talks of the expert and world leader who warned 911 was coming as that authorities were being prevented from investigating the issue due to “the politics of oil”. The show looks at how House of Saud and the US Military Industrial complex funded Osama Bin Laden who after 9/11 was used as the pretext for the invasion of Afghanistan and he look at how the fraud of Weapons of Mass Instruction in Iraq led to the invasion of Iraq on the lie Iraq was behind 9/11.
Ends the show with a “smoking gun” looking at how Anthrax attacks in the USA soon after 9/11 when in an interview with NBC’s Meet The Press on December 9, 2001, then-Vice President Dick Cheney said,“It’s been pretty well confirmed that (Atta) did go to Prague, and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in (the Czech Republic) last April, several months before the attack”. Except the Anthrax was identified independently by the Federation of American scientist were traced to Fort Detrick and how this key fact combined with the Jane Intelligence report showing how a 9/11 terrorist Mohammed Atta was under surveillance by Czechoslovakia (meeting with Iraqi diplomat Ahmad Samir Al-Ani and the man “Atta” was identified for the Czechs by Israeli agents despite Atta reportedly not being knowing to western intelligence and that the actual Atta was getting a ticket in Florida on the day the man getting ‘anthrax’ from a Iraqi colonel was identified in Czechoslovakia.
