Rep. Curt Weldon Refers To The 93 Bombings As Something We Should Know About

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I would like to know why you and others in your administration invoke 9/11 as justification for the invasion of Iraq... when no respected journalist or other experts confirm that such a link existed?

BUSH: And I made a tough decision. And knowing what I know today, I would make the decision again. Removing Saddam Hussein makes this world a better place and America a safer country.
WELDON: We've received assurances that the hearings will go forward.

But the other thing that we have to look at, Lou, and you have had another guest on your show recently, why did the 9/11 Commission pick 1996 and not go back beyond that? There is some very interesting material that needs to be tied in. The '93 attack on the Trade Center. The blind Sheiks trial. None of that was looked at by the 9/11 Commission, and the American people need to ask the question why.

It was the FBI that bombed

It was the FBI that bombed the World Trade Center in 1993:

None of this would be known today if it were not for the FBI's undercover agent Emad A. Salem taping his conversations with his FBI handlers (unbeknownst to them). Salem thought that the FBI might try to pin it on him so he took measures to protect himself. Indeed, without the FBI the '93 WTC bombing would never have happened, as it was agent Salem who built the bomb for the would-be Muslim "terrorists." Salem wanted to use fake ingredients for the "bomb" but the FBI ordered him to make a real one. When the making of the bomb was complete Salem told the FBI that they could now arrest the would-be terrorists, but the FBI told Salem that the bombing is to go forward. After agent Salem went public with his tapes in a news conference the FBI found it necessary to pay him over a million dollars just to shut him up.

On the above webpage you can find the below two audio clips from one of Emad A. Salem's recorded conversations with one of his FBI handlers, FBI Special Agent John Anticev:

The above clip is an excerpt from the below longer clip:

The above clips were recorded from a broadcast on WBAI Radio in the city of New York which aired this taped conversation between Emad A. Salem and FBI Special Agent John Anticev.

The below transcript is from 2:57 to 4:31 min:sec from the longer clip (SalemWBAI.mp3):

FBI Special Agent John Anticev: But, uh, basically nothing has changed. I'm just telling you for my own sake that nothing, that this isn't a salary, that it's--you know. But you got paid regularly for good information. I mean the expenses were a little bit out of the ordinary and it was really questioned. Don't tell Nancy I told you this. [Nancy Floyd is another FBI Special Agent who worked with Emad A. Salem in his informant capacity.]

Emad A. Salem: Well, I have to tell her of course.

Anticev: Well then, if you have to, you have to.

Salem: Yeah, I mean because the lady was being honest and I was being honest and everything was submitted with a receipt and now it's questionable.

Anticev: It's not questionable, it's like a little out of the ordinary.

Salem: Okay. Alright. I don't think it was. If that's what you think guys, fine, but I don't think that because we was start already building the bomb which is went off in the World Trade Center. It was built by supervising supervision from the Bureau and the D.A. and we was all informed about it and we know that the bomb start to be built. By who? By your confidential informant. What a wonderful, great case!

Anticev: Well.

Salem: And then he put his head in the sand and said "Oh, no, no, that's not true, he is son of a bitch." [Deep breath.] Okay. It's built with a different way in another place and that's it.

Anticev: No, don't make any rash decisions. I'm just trying to be as honest with you as I can.

Salem: Of course, I appreciate that.

Anticev: And as far as the payments go, and everything like that, they're there. I guarantee you that they are there.

It wasn't any of us

It wasn't any of us researchers here at ARG, but 'Able Danger' that found the Mohamed Atta link to Al-Farooq Mosque.

During the CIA's Jihad, Al-Farooq Mosque & the Alkifah Refugee Center in Brooklyn were [the blind sheik] Rahman's key bases of operation and a springboard for "the string of jihad offices that had been set up across America with the help of Saudi and American intelligence." Rahman didn't just pop up in Brooklyn by accident. Rahman received four visas from "CIA agents acting as consular officers at American embassies in Khartoum and Cairo."

What could the 9-11 Commission possibly want to hide about the '93 WTC bombings? Well, the FBI totally screwed it up. According to the Thursday October 28, 1993 New York Times on Page A1, the FBI did more than just allow the bombing to happen. They found an informer, told him to build the bombs, and when the informer secretly recorded his FBI master telling him to use real explosives insted of the fake harmless powder that was part of the "sting", they "called it off".

From where we sit, it looks like it's the Legend that might crash next.

Awoken Research Group, the

Awoken Research Group, the FBI didn't "totally [screw] ... up" its job on the World Trade Center in 1993. The FBI did a marvellous job in getting itself, and the U.S. government, more funding, power, and control in 1993. Far from being a screw-up, such staged terrorism has been a classic modus operandi used by the U.S. government over and over again to obtain more funding, power, and control.

Terrorism is the health of the state.

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."--H.L. Mencken, "Women as Outlaws," A Mencken Chrestomathy (1949), p. 29. This essay was first published in The Smart Set, December 1921.

"Government seems important to a people to the degree that it takes away their production in taxes. Correlary: The more the government takes the larger proportion of a people work for the government. Correlary: Without war or threat of imminent danger the government can't take a very large proportion of a people's production in taxes. Correlary: Without war or threat of imminent danger, government is not important. Correlary: Without war or the threat of imminent danger, the government will create them."--Steve Solomon,

"In some ways [Julia] was far more acute than Winston, and far less susceptible to Party propaganda. Once when he happened in some connection to mention the war against Eurasia, she startled him by saying casually that in her opinion the war was not happening. The rocket bombs which fell daily on London were probably fired by the Government of Oceania itself, 'just to keep people frightened.' This was an idea that had literally never occurred to him."--George Orwell in his book 1984

Weldon Gets His Chance To

What we have here, in my

What we have here, in my opinion, is a huge similarity between '93 and '01 regarding secondary government branches stumbling into CIA ops.

In '93, it was the FBI that stumbled into the CIA's al Faroong mosque network via Rahman [the blind sheik] .

In 2000, it was Able danger that stumbled into the CIA's al Faroong mosque network via Rahman [the blind sheik].
