I made some mistakes...

John O'Neill didn't refer to it as "Saudi Obstructionism." That is part of the title of the entry at historycommons.org. Also, he didn't "resign," but he "retired" after being put under an investigation for a trivial issue.


“There was no question that Vice President Cheney was closely monitoring what we were doing, and was not happy that we were having the inquiry at all.” - Senator Bob Graham

Talk About Closely Monitoring

Have a look at the level of detail in this FBI report about alleged AA77 hijacker Nawaf Al-Hazmi.


Page 19-- 08/272001--"20 flights were looked at" on Travelocity.com

Nawaf al-Hazmi

Both the top CIA management and FBI HQ knew on August 22, 2001 that al Qaeda terrorists Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar were inside of the US and both agencies knew that these terrorists connected to both the east Africa bombings and directly connected to the planning of the Cole bombing were inside of the US in order to take part in a massive al Qaeda attack that would kill thousands of Americans.

The CIA even knew that this attack would involve the hijacking of multiple commercial aircraft to be flown into the World Trade Center Towers, the Pentagon the US Capitol building.

So what did the CIA and FBI HQ do with this horrific information?

Agents at FBI HQ shut down the criminal investigation of Mihdhar and Hazmi by the FBI Cole bombing investigators on August 28, 2001, knowing full well that shutting down this investigation would allow this huge terrorist attack to take place. The agents at FBI HJQ who shut down this investigation were acting under orders from the CIA management, who had ordered the FBI HQ to sabotage any investigation of Mihdhar and Hazmi. When the CIA management, including George Tenet, Cofer Black and Richard Blee ordered FBI HQ to sabotage any investigation of Mihdhar and Hazmi they knew full well that sabotaging this investigation would allow this huge al Qaeda terrorist attack to take place and that many thousands of people who worked in the World Trade Center Towers would be killed in this attack

So where is this information found. By aggregating information in the 9/11 Commission report, although most of this report was a complete cover up, with the DOJ IG report, the Defense Exhibits entered into the Moussaoui trial, the account of FBI Agent Ali Soufan by Lawrence Wright, the article by Ken Silverstein in the January 2007 copy of Harpers on Richard Blee, and the Charge Sheet for Hambali snuck out of Guantanamo by Wikileaks and still kept secret by the New York Times on their own web site.

An Elaborate Paper Trail To Follow

I don't believe for one minute that poorly trained pilots would be allowed to carry out pinpoint accurate deliveries. If I were planning this much devastation I would remove the possibility of human error.

REMOTE CONTROL is the most likely method. Pre-programmed remote control removes the need for a drone pilot sitting on his big behind in a La-Z-Boy over in Nevada.

Ask yourself one question. If the Flight Termination System was perfected in the 80's and it was specifically designed to thwart hijackings, why wasn't it utilized on 9/11?

Answer: it was already in use because the FTS system was what was used to deliver the aircraft to their pinpoint accurate destinations.

I'm not being hoodwinked by the enormous elaborate paper trail. The summary shared above is TOO detailed to be attributed to an unknown entity. The patsies were being shepherded and followed through every step and mouse click. Their multiple bank accounts were being recharged in cash regularly. They rented cars and apartments and traveled freely around these United States.

I'm not buying into the connection that they were the cause of 757's arriving absolutely unmolested at the World Trade Center and Pentagon. This is a distraction away from the real perps.

Quote about Saudi Arabia...

“While I cannot talk about the details of the 28-page report since it is classified, I can say they are devoted to who funded the hijackers while they were in the United States, and point a strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the primary source,” Graham said.

Sarasota Herald Tribune

The report was issued by a previously unknown entity called “The FBI 9/11 Review Commission,” and comes at a time when there is growing media pressure on the agency to reveal what it knows about the funding for the 19 hijackers.

Even the paper trail has not been followed

because the media never followed it. Look at Brian Williams. He was suspended for lying about a personal experience. Yet we have across the board deception on 9/11 and the news companies have no problem with their conduct. 60 Minutes is a great example of shameful 9/11 reporting. Lara Logan was suspended for her flawed story on Benghazi but management evidently had no issue with the equally flawed report on Ali Soufan. The accompanying article on Logan's interview of Soufan dismissed CIA interference in the investigation of al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar as baseless. Are you kidding me? The media in this country is absurd. They get to facilitate a cover-up of 9/11 and at the same time lecture the public on believing in conspiracy theories.


Did he say the Truth Movement is going to go bonkers now?

The reason...

Why there is such a push right now to get the 28 redacted pages released is because in December 2013, a court “struck down an earlier decision that found Saudi Arabia immune from lawsuits. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it’s in the “interests of justice” to allow them to proceed.” That being said, the families have been calling for the release of the 28 redacted pages since the day it was announced that they would be classified. In late 2006, the September Eleventh Advocates (The Jersey Girls) released a petition calling for pertinent 9/11 information to be released, including the 28 redacted pages. We managed to get them 17k signatures, and nothing was done.

The 9/11 Commission apparently looked into the allegations within the 28 redacted pages, and found that they were lacking. In other words, the information in the 28 redacted page has been “debunked” by the “definitive account of 9/11″ (the 9/11 Commission’s report). So… why are there contradictions between the reports? If there’s nothing to the 28 redacted pages, why not release them?

Why the contradictions… because Philip Zelikow refused half of the interview requests for Saudi investigators. He made it difficult for people to gain access to the 28 redacted pages, and as a result, Dana Leseman went through a “back channel” to gain access to them, and Philip Zelikow fired her for it. She helped to research the material IN those pages because she came from the Joint Congressional Inquiry. Philip Zelikow and Dieter Snell took part in a “late night editing session” to remove Saudi support from the 9/11 Report, against the wishes of the staffers who worked on that aspect of the report, and relegated the information into footnotes in the back of the book.

So, this contradiction is another example of how compromised and corrupt the 9/11 Commission was. Something ALWAYS important to point out WHENEVER you get the chance.

The families want the 28 redacted pages so they can use them in a court room. Any time 9/11 has made it into a court room, information that was never available before usually comes out and sometimes it’s incriminating information (look at the Moussaoui sentencing phase). Aren’t we supposed to be supporting the 9/11 Family Members? I thought that’s something we should ALWAYS be doing with regards to the families seeking truth, accountability and justice.

I don't entirely trust Bob Graham, but I'm not doing this for Bob Graham. I'm doing it for the families.

Here’s a recent letter to the editor from the September Eleventh Advocates calling for the release of the pages (Patty Casazza is the only one listed, but both Mindy Kleinberg and Lorie Van Auken also wrote that, but because they wrote a recent letter to the editor, and you can only write one every 6 months, they took out their names).


Are the 28 redacted pages the “answer” to 9/11? HELL NO!!!
