This blog-entry is based on the article "Nazi-Terror is coming back to Germany".
After Mr. Böhnhardt und Mr. Mundlos would have committed suicide on 04.11.11, Ms. Zschäpe would have sent in the following days their confessing video to the media. So middle November 2011 German media discovered the existence of a right-wing terror organization: The until then unknown Nazi-group called "National Socialist Underground" (NSU) confessed to murder immigrants, a cop and confessed to carry out two bomb attacks in Germany in the time from September 2000 to April 2007. After this revelation Parliamentarian fact-finding Commissions were set up, but their work has been obstructed by the Intelligence Apparatus. This article reveals the main problems of the Parliamentarians.
The Intelligence Apparatus is not willing to inform the Parliamentarian Commission about its informers, which sale information to the Apparatus. The Undersecretary of State in the Interior Ministry, Klaus-Dieter Fritsche, said openly to the leading Commissioner Sebastian Edathy, that public weal would be more important than Parliamentarian fact-finding. Even if there were informers in the surround of the NSU, it would be legitimate to conceal that to the Commission:
Thanks to the work of the Parliamentarian investigation, it is known, that the three supposed NSU-members Böhnhardt, Mundlos and Zschäpe were "surrounded" by informers. The police in the Federal State "Thüringen" even had the suspicion, that the fugitive trio Böhnhardt, Mundlos and Zschäpe had connections to the Intelligence Apparatus and were warned about Police-activities. That suspicion based on the unsuccessful, long lasting hunt of a normally very successful special Police Unit ("fugitive unit"), and based on the reluctance of the Intelligence Apparatus to share information with the Police (bundestag). So it was not possible to arrest the trio, although they kept living in East Germany and used its right-wing network.
Destroying of files
The work of the Commissions is obstructed by the massive shredding of important files. Those files are partly connected to the trio and its surrounding right-wing supporters. Whereas the (supposed) existence of the terror-organization NSU was revealed middle of November 2011, the Apparatus kept destroying files until July 2012 (tagesspiegel). That destruction based on the order of the Interior Ministry. The order overruled the instruction of the then President of the "Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution", Heinz Fromm; therefore he resigned July 2012. Fromm said, that he was not informed about the destruction and was cheated by his own people.(welt)
Misinformation by the Secretary of the Interior
On Juli 2012, as the first information about destroyed files emerged, Home Secretary Hans-Peter Friedrich gave an interview to the German television "ARD". He blamed past "laxness" to obey to data protection regulations; the state is obligated to destroy files. Then he claimed, that there would be no connection between informants and the surround of the NSU.
After two months it came out, that there was one officially confirmed informant in the surround of the trio: Thomas Starke. He delivered them explosives (TNT) in the year 1997. During that time Starke should have been just under observation. He would have become an informer later, in the year 2000. The TNT should have been stolen from a depot of the "German Federal Armed Forces" (fr-online). The trio built bombs, which were hidden in three garages, one garage belonged a policeman (faz). The informer Tino Brandt bought an instruction book, how to build bombs (SZ). After the bombs were discovered, the trio could flee and went into the underground in the year 1998 and lived there until November 2011.
The NSU-Commission was informed about Starke not until middle of September 2012 (spiegel). The Interior Secretary of federal state Berlin, Mr. Frank Henkel, knew about him already from March 2012 on (morgenspiegel)! The telephone - protocols of Starke were destroyed as part of that shredding-campaign (welt).
The Spiegel reported about a secret letter of the "state-protection agency" of Berlin to "Federal Prosecutor's office". There the Intelligence Agency writes, that it did not want to overhand files to the office, because "it cannot be excluded", that the files fall then in the hands of the NSU-commission (Spiegel 39/2012, S. 41).
Connection to Right-wing organisation
"Thüringer Home Protection"
From 1996 to 1998 the trio was part of the group so called "Thüringer Home Protection" (THP). During that time the police feared, that its members could form a terrorist organization, because some became more and more militant and armed.(meininger tagblatt) Basically the THP was set up by informers. The leading member and informer Tino Brandt should have invested the money, he got from the Intelligence Apparatus (200.000 DM), in the build-up of the THP (wikipedia). During that time there were up to 45 informers in the THP; each fourth should have been paid by the Apparatus (TA)
"Ku Klux Klan"
The trio also had connection to the Ku Klux Klan. There are photos of Ms. Zschäpe, Mr. Böhnhardt and supposed NSU-supporters during a cross-burning in Germany (mdr) in 1996. 1998 the police found a mailing list of Mr. Mundlos. In the list stood the name “Thomas Richter”, who was an informer, leading member and founder of the Klan in Germany (spiegel). His “European White Knights of the Ku-Klux-Klan” (EWK KKK) existed from 2000 to 2003 and consisted in 19 members. Three members should have been informants and five more should have been Policemen. This provoked Commissioner Wolff to question Undersecretary Fritsche, whether there had been Ku Klux Klan member at all, who were no informers? (stern)
The founder of “White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan/Germany”, and informer Carsten Szczepanski should be one of the escape-helpers of the fugitive trio (zeit).
Two former Klan-members and policemen had known one (supposed) victim of the NSU; the 2007 shoot Policewoman Michele Kiesewetter. One Policeman was even her supervisor and on duty during her assassination (wikipedia).
Protecting of informers
According the Intelligence Apparatus the trio formed a small terrorist cell ("Kleinstzelle") without many supporters. It would even not be clear, if their supposed supporters did know, that the trio were committing terrorist acts (SZ). The head of the "Federal Criminal Agency", Mr. Ziercke, said June 2012, that he has never seen such a degree of conspiracy (fr-online). The leading conservative politician, Hans-Peter Uhl, said, that even in the case of Ms. Zschäpe it could be, that she will only be convicted for arson of their apartment on 04.11.2011 (focus).
Could it be, that the apparatus is protecting its informers? It is known, that it had protected its informers in the past (spiegel). The head of the German NSU-Commission Sebastian Edathy commented, that the cooperation between the Intelligence Apparatus and Police was a disaster. As an example he spoke about the (supposed) NSU-murder of Halit Yozgat. Here the Police had its first "hot trial" (Die Zeit, 05.07.12, Nr. 28, Seite 6) in the case of the so called "Bosphorus serial murders". The murder-suspect was an officer of the apparatus itself. With support of the then Interior secretary of Hesse, Volker Bouffier, the police could not question the informers of that suspicious officer. Edathy therefore accused Bouffier, that he would have hindered the law enforcement of the police.
Edathy: "Am Ende ist das entschieden worden vom damaligen hessischen Innenminister Herrn Bouffier, heute Ministerpräsident, und der hat es so gesehen, wie der Verfassungsschutz. Und das ist, ehrlich gesagt, die Verhinderung von Strafverfolgung im Amt.” (youtube)
The result of the obstruction is a confusing general view, with many unanswered questions. It is even imaginable, that the case against the trio Böhnhardt, Mundlos and Zschäpe is partly made up the intelligence apparatus.
This article is mirrod from my blog "Friedensblick"
According to media reports Uwe Mundlos, Uwe Böhnhardt and Beate Zschäpe founded the National Socialist Underground (NSU) and committed at least ten murderers, two bomb-attacks and several bank robberies. The Neo-Nazi group built bombs in the late nineties and placed them in the public. They were subsequently searched with arrest warrants from the year 1998 on. The first deadly attack happened on 09. September 2000, the last failed attack on 04. November 2011, which resulted in the deaths of Mundlos and Böhnhardt. According to media reports Mundlos and Böhnhardt robbed a bank and fled by bikes and later by caravan. After several hours they noticed that the police was about to surround them. They phoned Zschäpe and gave her the order to ignite their apartment. Then they committed suicide. On 9th of November spiegel-Online.de reported that one person had a wound in the head and the other person had a wound in the breast. On 13th of November the prosecution Meiningen declared in contrast to the media-report, that based on the autopsy Mundlos and Böhnhardt died by direct head-shoots.
The following blog-entry is focused on the anthrax-attacks and tries to connect the dots. It will present some interesting, partly new, results, which could support deeper investigations by experts.
Project for the New American Century
This organization published September 2000 a paper, called "Rebuilding american defenses", which described their aimed revolutionary changes in US policies, but “ (...) the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” (Link to wikipedia)
The "Neo-cons" had also published following attitude towards bioweapons: "And advanced forms of biological warfare that can “target” specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool." (Link to german wikipedia)
Anthrax-letters were sent to two Senators, who were in positions to block the Patriot Act. Senator Daschle, was the Majority Leader of the Senate. Senator Leahy was the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. (Link to abovetopsecret)
According to wikipedia, the former secretary of defense, Frank Carlucci, was affiliated with the Project for the New American Century. (Link to wikipedia)
Member of this organization were the acting secretary of defense during 9/11, Donald Rumsfeld, Vice-President, Dick Cheney, and Jeb Bush, the brother of George W. Bush, who was president during 9/11. (Link to wikipedia.org)
Who benefited from the attacks?
After 2001, the civilian biodefense funding increased drastically; in the 12 years after 9/11 (including the budget of 2012), the US-government has spent $66.91 billion in biodefense (Link to upmc-biosecurity)

Colonel Robert Marr was the battle commander at NEADS on September 11, 2001. The german author Paul Schreyer suspects him to sabotage the air-defense on 911 (source). On the other hand side Miles Kara, researcher and former staff member of the 9/11 Commission, defended Marr decisions in that day (source). Nevertheless it can be said, without any doubt, that Col. Marr was lying to the 911-commission and has involved himself into contradictions (source).
Therefore it is interesting to find out more about the background of this important person of history.
What did Col. Marr before he came to NEADS?
The immense costs of the "War on Terror" has been presented as an argument against the fact-based conclusion, that 9/11 was a work from inside the USA. The question of such critiques is: "Why should the USA destabilize its own economy?" (Discussion in KPFA, "911´s footprint", time-index 36:45 and 51:25).
This blog-entry will focus on reasons, why the "War on Terror" actual helps the economy and asks, who benefits from the attacks.
1. Without creditors - no economic growth
Christopher F. Aguilar wrote an outstanding article (source) about the events inside the white house from the eyes of the naval aide of Vice-President Cheney, Doug Cochrane. As his interview with the 911 Commission is still not being published, this 911blogger entry is going to highlight three significant points from above article:
1. First Attack in the television?
Cochrane says, that after he "received a call from the White House situation room informing him that an airplane had hit the World Trade Center. American Airlines Flight 11 struck the World Trade Center's north tower at 8:45 a.m. He ran to the situation room to verify the information, but by then it was already appearing on CNN."
This statement is problematic, because there were no recording of the first attack in the television until hours after the attack happened. Nevertheless President Bush himself confirms Cochranes account! President Bush holded a town hall meeting, which was aired December 4, 2001, where he had this to say:
Colonel Robert Marr was the battle commander at NEADS on September 11, 2001. During the 911-events he was in the "battle-cab". In a different location was the so called "operational floor". The "norad-tapes" are from this "operational floor".
Marr had an important and responsible position on 911 and was interviewed on October 27, 2003, by the 911-Commission staff. In this interview Marr gave some extraordinary statements. On January 24, 2004, he was interviewed a second time, where he gave contradictory statements.
"Ušće Tower ...
(...) is the tallest skyscraper in Belgrade, capital of Serbia, and belongs to the tallest skyscrapers in the Balkans. (...) The original building was 105 m tall.
The testimony of Norman Mineta is widely discussed and known at 911blogger. For example "Mineta's Testimony CONFIRMED".
Nevertheless there are important statements made by important FAA-personal, which need to be contributed to the discussion:
Mike Weikert was in charge in the FAA-Headquarter for the "primary net" (hijack-net). In his statement to the 911 commission, he describes, what happened shortly before the Pentagon attack. He says, that the FAA-Headquarter tried to "raise" the White House, Defense Department, and that Belger was monotoring "both nets":
"We were trying to raise them when we were tracking the plane that crashed in the Pentagon. Belger was in the room at the time. He was monitoring both nets." source
Monte Belger Acting (FAA Deputy Administrator) cannot remember speaking with Mineta, but can recall reports of a "high speed VFR", which flow eastward in this time:
Jim Naurekas is editior of the magazine "extra", which stands for fairness and accuracy in reporting, and part of an (US) american based media watch group. In connection with the media-coverage of the uprising in Egypt, he was asked by Al Jazeera, what role the media plays in the US. His answer from New York, time-index 06:30:
"Well, I think, in any country, in any society, the media are an important institution for maintaining the stability of the people, who are in power. And the US is no exception to that. We have a media, that is very commercialized, very corporate. There is only a very marginal public sector in US-Media and so you have in the US a media, which is closely allied with the corporate establishment, which in turn has in very close tie to government."
The head of FAA, New York, Mister McCormick, speaks about the time as the observed Flight 175 was heading toward New York ...
"Probably on of the most difficult moments of my life was the 11 Minutes from the point I watched this aircraft, when we first lost communications until the point the aircraft hit the WTC. For those 11 Minutes, I knew, we knew, what was going to happen, and that was difficult." http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0208/12/lt.12.html
Who was in charge to get military assistance for Flight 175 according to FAA-controllers?
Mister LaCates: "He believes that the OMIC (Operations Manager in Charge) has the responsibility and operational knowledge to contact the military." http://media.nara.gov/9-11/MFR/t-0148-911MFR-01164.pdf
Mister Rosenberg: "It would be OMIC who would have responsibility and operational knowledge on what channels to go through to get military assistance" http://www.scribd.com/doc/17053279/T8-B2-FAA-NY-Center-Martin-Rosenberg-...
This article discusses the statements of two important persons with regard of foreknowledge about the unfolding crisis.
In the 911-commission reports stands ...
"Shortly after the second attack in New York, a senior Secret Service agent charged with coordinating the President’s movements established an open line with his counterpart at the FAA,who soon told him that there were more planes unaccounted for—possibly hijacked— in addition to the two that had already crashed."
This account is based on the statement of the senior Secret Service agent, Nelson Garabino. He says his FAA-counterpart, Terry van Steenbergen, said (a few minutes after the second plane crash) to him, that ...
"... there were 4 planes believed to be hijacked and 2 outstanding believed to be travelling to D.C"
Mister van Steenbergen describes the moments ...
