New Bond Film Highlights 9/11 Insider Trading

Steve Watson's got the goods:

"In a twenty first century update, the new James Bond Movie, Casino Royale, directly references 9/11 and highlights the fact that massive manipulation of airline stocks prior to the attacks account for a leading motive behind the event.

The movie, based on the original 1953 novel, has been updated with a terrorism plotline in which the bad guy, Le Chiffre, is a banker to the world's terrorists and in order to stop him, and bring down the terrorist network, Bond must beat Le Chiffre in a $150 million poker game at the Casino Royale.

The movie contains a significant reference to 9/11 when M, the fictional head of MI6, tells Bond the following:

"When they analyzed the stock market after 9/11 the CIA discovered there had been massive shorting of airline stocks. When the stocks hit bottom on 9/12, somebody made a fortune."

In the film, Bond prevents the same thing happening again with the Boeing stock, by thwarting the bombing of an airbus prototype plane at Miami airport. With their prototype destroyed the company would have been near bankruptcy. Instead, someone (we later discover it's Le Chiffre) loses over a hundred million dollars betting the wrong way as Bond foils the plot.

As has been extensively reported over the past five years, multiple sources of criminal insider trading were discovered after 9/11, indicating that many different parties had prior knowledge of the attacks.

The most significant instances of this however, and ones obviously not revealed in the Bond film, are the CIA and FBI linked cases that indicate the intelligence services, at best had prior knowledge of the attacks, and at worst were involved in their orchestration.

The London Independent among others reported that the firm used to buy many of the "put" options – where a trader, in effect, bets on a share price fall – on United Airlines stock was headed until 1998 by "Buzzy" Krongard, at the time the executive director of the CIA.

Until 1997, Mr Krongard was chairman of Alex Brown Inc, America's oldest investment banking firm. Alex Brown was acquired by Bankers Trust, which in turn was bought by Deutsche Bank. His last post before resigning to take his senior role in the CIA was to head Bankers Trust – Alex Brown's private client business, dealing with the accounts and investments of wealthy customers around the world.

Other publications reported similar stories concerning FBI personnel.

On the one hand it is quite surprising to see that such a reference to the shorting of airline stocks made it into the Bond movie, primarily because the 9/11 Commission spectacularly omitted it from their investigation into the attacks.

One would think that any investigation would attempt to follow the money as it were, to trace the funding of and profits made from the attack in an attempt to discover the perpetrators. Apparently not in this case.

The Commission also failed to look into the fact that the head of the Pakistani Intelligence agency, General Mahmoud Ahmed, wired $100,000 to the lead hijacker, Mohammed Atta, in the days before 9/11. Ahmed was having breakfast on the morning of 9/11 with Porter Goss, the head of the House Intelligence Committee and the next head of the CIA.

Is the 9/11 reference a simple plot device in the Casino Royale? Is it an attempt by the script writers to further blow the whistle on the insider trading? Or is it an attempt to steam valve the information, to mix fiction with reality and thus confuse the two?

In another item of interest to Infowars readers, the film, on general release now, also features Bond being "chipped" with a tracking device in his forearm, which at one point saves his life."

steam valve

i enjoyed the steam valve reference. for the record, i have radiators on my ceiling. thanks, steve watson. you continue to provide well-written articles that i can relate to.
here i am singing a song for you.

Sounds like good 9/11 insider-trading publicity to me


New Bond Film Highlights 9/11 Insider Trading!!!

That is a very pleasant surprise! Thanks!



the put option story

There were very suspicious stock trades in the weeks leading up to 9/11, suggesting that the terrorists had purchased put options in stocks relating to 9/11 with the knowledge that their stock prices would fall. The purchases strongly suggest foreknowledge of specific details about the attacks. The occurrence of such an imbalance occurring by fluke would be extremely rare. The low probability of these trades occurring without foreknowledge cannot be brushed off as yet another bazaar coincidence that occurred on 9/11. The Chicago Tribune reported that on “Sept. 6, put volume on United Airlines was 3,150, more than four times its average daily put volume this year, according to data from the Options Clearing Corp. Put volume for Boeing on Sept. 7 totaled 27,294, more than five times its average daily put volume this year. The day before the attacks, put volume on American Airlines stock was 4,516, nearly 11 times its average daily volume for the year. The insurance industry, also expected to be hard hit by the effects of the terrorist attacks, saw similar plays on its put options. Citigroup, which has a large insurance arm, and insurance broker Marsh & McLennan Cos. experienced extraordinarily high put volumes just days before the attacks.” [42] Sources told CBS News that “they have never seen that kind of imbalance before” [43] .

The only suspicious airline trades that occurred were the two companies whose planes were hijacked on 9/11. Marsh occupied the exact floors that were impacted in the North Tower . Citigroup had incriminating files destroyed in the collapse of WTC 7. The 9/11 commission report deals with this anomaly by declaring that “some unusual trading did in fact occur, but each such trade proved to have an innocuous explanation” and that “further investigation has revealed that the trading had no connection with 9/11. A single U.S.-based institutional investor with no conceivable ties to al Qaeda purchased 95 percent of the UAL puts on September 6 as part of a trading strategy that also included buying 115,000 shares of American on September 10. Similarly, much of the seemingly suspicious trading in American on September 10 was traced to a specific U.S.-based options trading newsletter, faxed to its subscribers on Sunday, September 9, which recommended these trades. These examples typify the evidence examined by the investigation.” [44]

This example is typical of the 9/11 Commission’s pre-determined conclusion that the attacks were committed solely by Al Qaeda. They concluded that the trades must have been a strange coincidence because “ U.S. -based” institutions could not have possibly had foreknowledge of the attacks.

insider trading

Happy to see someone can discuss the details about insider traading.

There is a lot of potential here because it's a lot easier for the public to consider that financiers are involved in a scam than they can believe that hundreds of engineers are.

About a year ago I met a union official who was open to learning more about this. I believe it's terrible that the unions with all their resources don't investigate why union members died on 9/11.Even if they don't agree beforehand to necessarily release their findings, unions should do their own research. Even if a strong case cannot be made on this aspect, it hardly begins to counter our other findings.

I asked my friend Kyle Hence to refer me to whomever he felt had done the best work. He put me in contact with a grad student in journalism who was preparing an article. The fellow never published it because various experts convinced him his argument was too shaky. I'm looking for anyone with more time than me who can carry the ball on this.

Kevin Barrett profiled in Anderson Cooper CNN blog:

That is a HUGE story re: Cooper & Barrett!!! It needs it's own



The new delayed blog system sux. Fewer people go through the trouble of blogging here anymore. We are missing out on good info due to 911blogger beuracracy.

keep in mind that Anderson

keep in mind that Anderson Cooper almost worked for the CIA. he claims he even had an interview but turned them down. very interesting that he would take notice of Barrett.

Hey, I think that is excellent news re: Barrett!!!


hit the comments section, we

hit the comments section, we seem to be losing.

My 2 cents...

I have done some of my own "research" on Mr. Barrett and his views regarding 9/11. I have to say he certainly has his facts in order. "Shocking" is the best word to describe my findings.

I was particularly shocked to find that given the overwhelming evidence suggesting government complicity, we have heard very little from the democrats on this issue. Not even a call for a new investigation! Why are the democrats so silent on the issue of 9/11 Truth?

I strongly suggest that more Americans look closely into this story. Thank you Mr. Cooper for shedding at least some light on this issue.


Trying to sound moderate in hopes my comments get published.

I may be too new to this blog to know if the last season of the TV spy thriller "24" was discussed - the POTUS himself was taking orders directly from a rogue network, while playing the "mole" that derails CTU (Counter Intelligence Unit) efforts to stop Russian-separatist terrorists from attacking Americans with nerve gas to create an international incident. At season's end the POTUS is caught confessing on a wire worn by his wife and taken into custody.

Considering FOX produces this, it's anybody's guess as to what, if anything other than veggie entertainment, might be behind it. I guess it has a big following so the writers must discuss it in the media a bit, but who knows, secrecy may be more important to their job security than to the alphabet spooks they write about.

i saw the entire season of

i saw the entire season of 24 last year and the producers obviuosly know all about false flags. there was a wink and nod the entire season. seriously, check for a video called "24-false flag".

2nd season the best

I believe it was the second season of 24 in which the plot revolved around shady oil cartels plus top government officials engineering a nuclear false-flag event against the US in order to start a war in the Middle East.

Judge: FBI must correct

Judge: FBI must correct disclosures on evacuation of Saudis after 9/11
A U.S. district court judge has ordered the FBI to correct disclosures regarding the US government's evacuation of Saudi royals and bin Laden family members after the September 11 attacks in 2001, a conservative, non-partisan group announced today.

"Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Richard W. Roberts of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has ordered the Federal Bureau of Investigation to submit 'proper disclosures' to the Court and Judicial Watch by December 15, 2006 concerning the U.S. government's evacuation of Saudi royals and members of the bin Laden family from the United States immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks," the group said in a press release obtained by RAW STORY.

Judicial Watch notes that Judge Roberts criticized "the adequacy of redaction descriptions, the accuracy of the sworn statement submitted with the documents, the validity of exemption claims, and other errors in the FBI’s disclosures.

Excuse my ignorance but

Excuse my ignorance but isn't that F+cking BIG NEWS ????
Did not understand everything. Am from Germany....
Is it or is it not ?? :)

it is and it isnt. first, we

it is and it isnt. first, we already know that the U.S. flew a bunch of Saudis and members of the Bin Laden family out of the country after 9/11, we just dont know exactly how many and exactly who. also, Judicial Watch is a front group in my opinion(the way Tom Fittion salivated over the blurry "Flight 77" footage and how it would "put to rest" conspiracy theories proved my suspicions were dead on), i dont trust them or their new owner and neither does the previous owner.

That is a great order given to the FBI by the judge, but like

Chris suggests, their is something fishy about Judicial Watch & its newest President, Tom Fitton.
