The Questions of 9/11 are Still Unanswered

It’s not unjustifiable or irrational to argue that the 9/11 attacks
were designed and intended to rescue Israel from a political
dissolution which was seen by many thinkers as its ultimate destiny,
and to promote the cordial coalition of Bush and Bin Laden families.
It’s no wonder that 9 years after the attacks on New York’s Twin Towers
and Pentagon, Osama Bin Laden, who is introduced as an Islamic
fundamentalist and terrorist that masterminded and directed the 9/11
attacks, hasn’t been arrested or killed yet.

For those who are familiar with the world of journalism, it’s
comprehensible that Osama Bin Laden was simply a name which should have
been put forward to become the target of ad hominem attacks by the
mainstream media of the Bilderberg Group to appease the pain of
Americans who couldn’t digest the tragic loss of life in a chain of
suicidal attacks which were carried out by the agents of a political
entity which has so far succeeded in surviving thanks to the ignorance
of taxpayers who don’t know where their taxes go.

Two days after the attacks, President George W. Bush said on
September 13, 2001 that finding Bin Laden is the administration’s first
priority. These are his words: “the most important thing for us is to
find Osama bin Laden. It’s our number one priority and we will not rest
until we find him.”

6 months later, everything changed. These are the words of President
George W. Bush, too: “I don’t know where he is. I have no idea and I
really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”

The priority changes in 6 months. Isn’t it ridiculous? No.
Realistically, it’s simply painful. The mission has been accomplished
and Osama Bin Laden, a political scapegoat, has been vilified and
stigmatized to the extent that every American would point the finger of
suspicion at him. No-body would think of any other possibility. Osama
Bin Laden, an internationally renowned terrorist, had carried out the
attacks. So, there should be a War on Terrorism in which the culprits
of 9/11 attacks would be punished categorically.

But, what is the reality behind the tragic terrorist attack on the United States?

1- Ex-President George W. Bush knew in advance that the 9/11 attack
would take place. The story of President Roosevelt’s being aware of the
December 7, 1941 Attack on Pearl Harbor happened once again and Mr.
Bush betrayed his nation reprehensibly.

Sterling D. Allan has enumerated a number of evidences and reasons
which indicate that President Bush had foreknowledge of the attacks and
also had planned a certain agenda for his consecutive public reaction.
This is one of the most insightful arguments he puts forward: “He
(Bush) is the only one who could have given permission to U.S. military
jets to intercept and shoot down the hijacked planes thereby averting
every target hit after the first. It is likely that he knew that other
hijacked planes were in the air, and he could have given the command to
intercept and shoot down if necessary. His known behavior constituted
gross negligence at best, and given what he most probably knew;
treason.”

2- American researchers Allan Wood and Paul Thompson point to the
same issue that Allan had highlighted earlier. At approximately 8:48
A.M. on the morning of September 11, 2001, the first footages of the
burning World Trade Center were aired on live television. “By that
time, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the North American
Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD), the National Military Command
Center, the Pentagon, the White House, the Secret Service, and Canada’s
Strategic Command all knew that three commercial airplanes had been
hijacked…So why, at 9:03 a.m.—fifteen minutes after it was clear the
United States was under terrorist attack—did President Bush sit down
with a classroom of second-graders and begin a 20-minute pre-planned
photo op? No one knows the answer to that question” they note in a
research project carried out for the History Commons.

3- President Bush had planned to pay a visit to Booker Elementary
School in Sarasota, Florida on September 11 morning. The plan had been
scheduled since August but was “only publicly announced on the morning
of September 7″, according to Allan and Thompson.

As reported by Daily Telegraph on December 16, 2001, official
accounts, including the words of Bush himself, say Bush was first told
of the attacks after he arrived at the school. According to reports by
the ABC News and Washington Times, ex-President arrived at school
shortly before 9:00 A.M. Alan Wood and Paul Thompson state that there
are at least four reports which demonstrate that Bush was told of the
first crash before he arrived at school. UK’s Observer reported on
September 16 that “Bush was driving to the school in a motorcade when
the phone rang. An airline accident appeared to have happened. He
pressed on with his visit.”

The History Commons researchers believe that “claims of Bush’s
ignorance become harder to believe when one learns that others in his
motorcade were immediately told of the attack.”

They quoted Kia Baskerville, a CBS News producer who was traveling
with Bush that morning who received a message about a plane crash “as
the presidential motorcade headed to President Bush’s first event.”
Baskerville said, “Fifteen minutes later I was standing in a second
grade classroom [waiting for Bush’s entrance]” which means she got the
news at about 8:47, right as the story was first being reported.

3- Since the mainstream media are accustomed to withholding crucial
and vital information from their addressees and usually propagate and
disseminate what is in line with their imperialistic interests, not
many people heard about Osama Bin Laden’s taped statement which was
released shortly after the 9/11 attacks took place. Here is what Bin
Laden stated about the attacks. He astutely gave the clue to the main
culprit behind the terrorist attacks and one could simply trace the
footsteps of that perpetrator should some intelligence and cleverness
were employed: “I was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the
United States nor did I have knowledge of the attacks. There exists a
government within a government within the United States. The United
States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within
itself, to the people who want to make the present century a century of
conflict between Islam and Christianity. That secret government must be
asked as to who carried out the attacks… The American system is totally
in control of the Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United
States.”

4- It is an undeniable fact that even if the War on Terrorism,
sparked by the 9/11 attacks, takes decades to be accomplished as a
mission on the agenda of U.S. administration, Osama Bin Laden will not
be the culprit who will be arrested as the man behind the terrorist
attacks. Bin Laden will beneficially serve for the United States as
someone who can portray a distorted, horrifying and appalling image of
Islam and what is coined by the U.S. think tanks as Islamic
fundamentalism.

Although Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, which all of us know was founded
and funded by CIA, has been introduced as the terrorist who directed
the 9/11 attacks, we should never forget that good friends never betray
each other. Bin Laden is a good friend of the United States who
sacrificed his innocence at the cost of rescuing Bush administration
from public scrutiny.

As reported by Denver Post’s columnist Cindy Rodríguez, “in 1978,
Bush and Osama bin Laden’s brother, Salem bin Laden, founded Arbusto
Energy, an oil company based in Texas.”

The Denver Post’s report includes some more interesting facts
regarding the connection between Bush and Bin Laden families: “Several
bin Laden family members invested millions in The Carlyle Group, a
private global equity firm based in Washington, DC. The company’s
senior advisor was Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush.
After news of the bin Laden-Bush connection became public, the elder
Bush stepped down from Carlyle.”

Interestingly, on Sept. 11, 2001, members of the Carlyle Group,
including Bush senior, and his former secretary of state, James Baker,
held a meeting at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., along
with Shafiq bin Laden, another one of Osama bin Laden’s brothers.

And finally, it’s helpful to refer to Rick Wiles’ investigative
research in which some new dimensions of Bush family’s connections to
Bin Laden family has been revealed: “One of President Bush’s earliest
financial backers was James Bath, a Houston aircraft broker. Bath
served with President Bush in the Texas Air National Guard. Bath has a
mysterious connection to the Central Intelligence Agency.”

“According to a 1976 trust agreement, Salem bin Laden appointed
James Bath as his business representative in Houston. Revelation about
Bath’s relationship with the bin Laden financial empire and the CIA was
made public in 1992 by Bill White, a former real estate business
partner with Bath. White informed federal investigators in 1992 that
Bath told him that he had assisted the CIA in a liaison role since 1976
– the same year former President George Herbert Walker Bush served as
director of the CIA,” notes Wiles in a 2001 American Freedom News
report.

What is clear is that War on Terrorism was a project which was
launched to salvage Israel from political dissolution or at least hold
up its collapse. It’s also a definite reality that the U.S.
administration would never target the main hands behind the 9/11
attacks, because these hands have been shaken by the U.S. bigwigs
several times. Osama Bin Laden was a name to entertain the global
public opinion. As the Press TV columnist Mohioddin Sajedi noted in his
recent article, Israel was the sole winner of 9/11 attacks. Remember
those five dancing Israelis who cheered victoriously while capturing
videos of the collapsing Twin Towers. That’s the reality.
