Did the Government ENTRAP the 9/11 Hijackers?


We've all seen it on television. The defense attorney argues his client was "entrapped". That is, that it wasn't the defendant's idea to commit the crime, but that the police planted the idea and urged him to do it.

Many of us have heard allegations that post-9/11 arrests of suspected Al Qaeda members were based on very thin information. Did you realize that all or virtually all of these arrests occurred due to entrapment? For example:

  • The Washington Post ran a story about one alleged threat entitled "Was it a terror sting or entrapment?", showing that the U.S. government lent material support to the wanna-be terrorists, and put violent ideas in their heads
  • There are numerous other instances of entrapment of peaceful or mentally incompetent people who are then arrested as "terrorists" (see this and this)

But surely 9/11 was different, right?. Without doubt, the hijackers were bloodthirsty militant Muslims who, solely due to their crazy beliefs and dark hearts, decided to attack and kill Americans. Right?

Maybe. But let's take a look at the facts before deciding:

  • An Al Qaeda operative very close to one of the top Al Qaeda leaders was a CIA informant
  • The former president of Italy said that U.S. and Israeli intelligence services were behind the 9/11 attack, and that that fact is widely known by the intelligence services of all of the western nations
  • According to intelligence officials in India, Pakistan's military chief of intelligence wired $100,000 to the lead hijacker days before 9/11 (mentioned here in a news roundup). This is especially interesting because: That particular chief of intelligence was appointed to that position with the approval of the U.S., and the intelligence chief had held "consultations" with his U.S. counterparts at the CIA and the Pentagon during the week prior to September 11

Given the above-described information, and the government's history of entrapping peaceful or mentally incompetent people and placing violent ideas in their heads - and plans and resources in their hands - is it possible that any of the participants in the 9/11 attacks who were not government agents were entrapped by those who were?

Note: I am not arguing that the hijackers' names should be cleared or that they are good people who were victimized. Anyone who took a single life on 9/11 is a murderer and a scoundrel. I am, instead, simply asking who the true masterminds of 9/11 were, and who provided the resources to carry out the plan.

bin Laden in Rawalpindi (Pakistan) on 9/10/2001

One more tidbit: Osama bin Laden, according to a news report on CBS was in Rawalpindi, Pakistan undergoing kidney treatment in a military hospital. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2002/01/28/eveningnews/main325887.shtml

to quote:

"He was getting medical treatment with the support of the very military that days later pledged its backing for the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan. Pakistan intelligence sources tell CBS News that bin Laden was spirited into a military hospital in Rawalpindi for kidney dialysis treatment."


And this article from Michel Chossudovsky http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO311A.html

To quote:

"It should be noted, that the hospital is directly under the jurisdiction of the Pakistani Armed Forces, which has close links to the Pentagon. U.S. military advisers based in Rawalpindi. work closely with the Pakistani Armed Forces. Again, no attempt was made to arrest America's best known fugitive, but then maybe bin Laden was serving another "better purpose"."

A day before 9/11? I wonder if Osama left that hospital alive?

Or did they shut him up permanently then?

My best guess is that the 19 flunkeys (if there even were 19)

like Atta were duped into doing things that set them up to be fall guys/patsies. The guys who were arrested after 9/11 & had show-trials were probably encouraged, entrapped, framed, etc.

Hijackers Were Testing Aviation System Against Threats

I believe that the 9/11 hijackers were brought into the U.S. by covert operatives working for criminal elements within government/industrial/financial complex and were asked to pose as potential terrorists (behave provocatively, enroll in flight schools, carry out attention getting 'dry-runs' on pre-9/11 flights, etc.)

This mock behavior would be viewed in hindsight or by real-time legitimate surveillance as genuine terrorist behavior.

On 9/11, they may or may not have participated in mock hijack simulations on flights (depending on if calls from flights were genuine) containing pilotless navigation systems that guided the planes into targets.

After 9/11, any provocative mock behavior would seem like smoking gun behavior of genuine terrorists and create an appearance of realism.

The hijackers were NOT radical. They were alcohol consuming, drug using, skirt chasing consumers of adult merchandise who liked to gamble, among other things.

Yes, good post!

That's exactly how it worked

That's exactly how it worked for Lee Harvey Oswald. He thought he was working for the government to identify gaps in security, but they were actually creating a backstory for a patsy. I think the most likely scenario for at least some of the 19 is that they believed they were playing "Red Team" in a drill.


that is one of the most interesting theories I've heard in a while!

And go get 'em on your lawsuit!!!

Thanx GW

By night, they were gambling, bar hopping, adult merchandise purchasing wild boys.

By day, these hijackers who supposedly lived in the shadows to evade detection, were doing their best to set off alarms AND create a history to be used as propaganda after 9/11 by the governement in support of their myth.

The following activity may have been at the direction of the patsies government tied handlers, supposedly to test the aviation system's awareness of provocative behavior (what the patsies may have believed they were doing) and to leave people like James Woods a story to tell Bill O'Reilly later on.

Late April-Mid-May 2000: Atta Leaves Numerous Clues While Seeking Crop-Dusting Airplane Loan

Mohamed Atta reportedly has a very strange meeting with Johnelle Bryant of the US Department of Agriculture (incidentally, one month before the official story claims he arrived in the US for the first time). According to Bryant, in the meeting Atta does all of the following:

He initially refuses to speak with one who is “but a female.”

He asks her for a loan of $650,000 to buy and modify a crop-dusting plane.

He mentions that he wants to “build a chemical tank that would fit inside the aircraft and take up every available square inch of the aircraft except for where the pilot would be sitting.”

He uses his real name even as she takes notes, and makes sure she spells it correctly.

He says he has just arrived from Afghanistan.

He tells about his travel plans to Spain and Germany.

He expresses an interest in visiting New York.

He asks her about security at the WTC and other US landmarks.

He discusses al-Qaeda and its need for American membership.

He tells her bin Laden “would someday be known as the world’s greatest leader.”

He asks to buy the aerial photograph of Washington hanging on her Florida office wall, throwing increasingly large “wads of cash” at her when she refuses to sell it. [ABC News, 6/6/2002]

After Bryant points out one of the buildings in the Washington photograph as her former place of employment, he asks her, “How would you like it if somebody flew an airplane into your friends’ building?”

He asks her, “What would prevent [me] from going behind [your] desk and cutting [your] throat and making off with the millions of dollars” in the safe behind her.

He asks, “How would America like it if another country destroyed [Washington] and some of the monuments in it like the cities in [my] country had been destroyed?”

He gets “very agitated” when he isn’t given the money in cash on the spot.

Atta later tries to get the loan again from the same woman, this time “slightly disguised” by wearing glasses. Three other terrorists also attempt to get the same loan from Bryant, but all of them fail. Bryant turns them down because they do not meet the loan requirements, and fails to notify anyone about these strange encounters until after 9/11. Government officials not only confirm the account and say that Bryant passed a lie detector test, but also elaborate that the account is consistent with other information they have received from interrogating prisoners. Supposedly, failing to get the loan, the terrorists switched plans from using crop dusters to hijacking aircraft. Other department employees also remember the encounter, again said to take place in April 2000. The 9/11 Commission has failed to mention any aspect of Johnelle Bryant’s account. [Washington Post, 9/25/2001; ABC News, 6/6/2002; London Times, 6/8/2002] Compare Atta’s meeting with FBI Director Mueller’s later testimony about the hijackers: “There were no slip-ups. Discipline never broke down. They gave no hint to those around them what they were about.” [CNN, 9/28/2002]


"This mock behavior would be

"This mock behavior would be viewed in hindsight or by real-time legitimate surveillance as genuine terrorist behavior."

But this assumes that the "hijackers" behaving in this incriminating manner in the months leading up to 9/11 were who they are portrayed to be. Where is the hard evidence that they were not imposters who had simply stolen the identities of patsies?

There are two methods of "sheep-dipping" a patsy: one is to manipulate a real patsy to get him to behave the way you want; the second is to simply murder an anonymous patsy, steal his identity, and have one of your own agents who looks similarly go about and behave in an incriminating manner.

I believe both methods were used with Oswald, and both were also used with the "hijackers" who were running around the US before 9/11 behaving in such a bizarre manner.

(Note that there are plenty of dark-skinned Israelis available to pose as Arab "hijackers" in service to MOSSAD....)
