Now defunct Hamilton Bank: Interesting clients

As previously reported by WMR last July (Intelligence Whispers), "In 1995, a $10 million transfer was made to Houston. The source was the Saudi Royal family. The funds were transferred to Nations Bank via Banca Svizzera Italiana via SWIFT. On September 28, 1995, a $50,000 check was cashed at Nation's Bank of Pasadena, Texas. It allegedly originated from the $10 million of transferred funds from Saudi Arabia and the payee was "Fayyaz Ahmed." Fayyaz Ahmed, aka Fayez Ahmad, was also named as one of the hijackers aboard United 175 that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center

Could Patriot Act have prevented 9/11?

You know what would have prevented 9/11 from happening? If Norad came to work that day. If Standard Operating Procedures were followed, 9/11 could not have possibly happened. But lets not investigate any of that, instead, lets start illegal wars of aggression and spy on Americans to prevent the next one...

As the Senate prepares for a showdown vote to reauthorize the Patriot Act, members of the World's Greatest Deliberative Body should deliberate on this: Had it existed, could the Patriot Act have prevented the Sept. 11 massacre?

(PRWEB) January 27, 2006 -- An influential group of prominent experts and scholars have joined together alleging that senior government officials have covered up crucial facts about what really happened on 9/11. The members of this new non-partisan association, "Scholars for 9/11 Truth" (S9/11T), are convinced their research proves the current administration has been dishonest with the nation about events in New York and Washington, D.C.

More Letters to the Editor Regarding 9/11

Letters: Bush failed to act on pre-9/11 warnings - The Sheboygan Press

The latest assertion by the Bush administration is that if they had had the wire-tap capabilities before 9/11 that they've recently been exposed of using (i.e. illegal), they could very well have prevented the terrorist attacks. As one recent writer to The Sheboygan Press expressed, thousands of our fellow Americans would have been spared.

This current lie manufactured by Bush and Co. would be hilarious if not so tragic. The non-partisan 9/11 Commission published the facts surrounding the weeks and months leading up to the attacks on 9/11.

Letter to the Editor from Aspen

Citizens For 9/11 Truth Presentation in Glenwood

Editor:

"It is not merely the opinion of the editorial writer, or of the columnist, which is protected by the First Amendment. It is the free flow of information so that the public will be informed about the Government and its actions." - Murray Gurfein, former U.S. district judge, 1971.

The time is long overdue to make information available to the public that questions the official government story of the events surrounding 9/11/01. To that end, an organization called Citizens For 9/11 Truth will be presenting videos on that topic. The first showing will be on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 1 p.m. in the basement of the Glenwood Springs Library, 413 Ninth St. [Gleenwood Springs, CO] It is free and open to the public (and not sponsored by the library).

Wire Tapping, Like Everything, Justified By 9/11

Bush's repetition of 9-11 fallacy to justify NSA warrantless spying program presents media with another opportunity to challenge the claim

During his January 25 speech at the headquarters of the National Security Agency (NSA), President Bush repeated the debunked claim -- previously articulated by Vice President Dick Cheney and Gen. Michael V. Hayden, a deputy director for national intelligence and former head of the NSA -- that had the Bush administration's warrantless domestic spying program been in place before the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the NSA might have identified some of the hijackers in the United States. When several media outlets uncritically reported this claim -- as advanced by Hayden -- Media Matters for America noted that the 9-11 Commission and congressional investigators reportedly reached a very different conclusion: that the Bush administration had information on two of the 9-11 hijackers well over a year before the attacks occurred, and it was primarily bureaucratic problems -- rather than a lack of information -- that were responsible for the security breakdown.
