Movers and Shakers: Another Report of the "White Van"
As John Doraemi makes clear in this excellent analysis
there were at least two "vans" stopped, searched and seized in New Jersey on 9/11, resulting in the apprehension of at least seven suspects.
The first van, associated with the "dancing Israelis" seen filming the North Tower strike in Liberty State Park, was stopped "on Route 3 in East Rutherford around 4:30 p.m."
A second van was stopped on or near the George Washington Bridge several hours later. CNN's Deborah Feverick cited "two sources" claiming that "law enforcers found tons of explosives" inside this vehicle. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0109/11/se.04.html Dan Rather and the Jerusalem Post echoed this report.
Two events, miles and hours apart.
Now consider the Port Authority Police Department Reports, Group 2, pg. 52.
Officer John Noble records: "After the collapses I remember reports of a...white van filled with explosives in the Jersey City/Hoboken area". Noble is describing Police transmissions, not media reports. If nothing else, Noble's recollection further corroborates the seizure of at least one explosives-laden vehicle in New Jersey on 9/11. His description of a "white van" coincides with the Urban Moving Systems white 2000 Chevrolet van in the BOLO alert, but cannot be found in any reports of the GWB vehicle. According to the Bergen Record article (online version), "bomb-sniffing dogs reacted as if they had detected explosives" in the East Rutherford van, but "officers were unable to find anything". Of course, Noble may be conflating reports of the first vehicle with reports of the second later that night. But Noble refers to the "Jersey City/Hoboken area", describing the vicinity of the Holland Tunnel--a third site miles from either East Rutherford or the George Washington Bridge.
How many vans were seized? Precisely what and who did they contain? What became of the evidence? What became of the suspects? Any true investigation of the events of 9/11 must answer these questions.
