Cheering Movers and Art Student Spies: Was Israel Tracking the Hijackers Before the 9/11 Attacks?

A new article in the newsletter Counterpunch examines unresolved questions over whether Israeli agents were tracking the 9/11 hijackers before September 11th. ABC’s 20/20, The Forward, and Salon.com have all covered the story. But where’s the follow up? We speak to the author of the article, Christopher Ketcham; Counterpunch editor Alexander Cockburn, and Marc Perelman, the Forward reporter who did one of the first reports on the story in 2002.

Were Israeli agents tracking the 9/11 hijackers before September 11th? In 2002, ABC’s 20/20 Salon.com and The Jewish newspaper The Forward all did this story. But where’s the follow up?

Freelance journalist Christopher Ketcham has just published a comprehensive piece on this story in the newsletter Counterpunch. The article highlights various interconnected stories: The five Israeli “movers” who witnesses say were cheering after the first plane struck the World Trade Center; the so-called Israeli art students who were living in concentrated areas where hijackers were living around the United States and how two of the hijackers ended up on the Watch List weeks before 9/11.

Christopher Ketcham, the author of the article, joins us on the line from upstate New York. Alexander Cockburn also joins us on the line. He is the editor of Couterpunch where the piece is published. And with us here in the firehouse studio is Marc Perelman he is the reporter who did one of the first reports on the story for The Forward in 2002.

* Marc Perelman. Diplomatic Correspondent for The Forward. He broke the story about Israeli spies in 2002.

* Alexander Cockburn. Editor of Counterpunch.

* Christopher Ketcham. Freelance journalist. Author of “What Did Israel Know in Advance of the 9/11 Attacks?” in the latest edition of CounterPunch’s print newsletter.

an international inside job performed by cheney and kissinger

the Mossad/Israel theory

Anyone who reads this please look into www.iamthewitness.com with Daryl Bradford Smith. And don't just look, listen to some of the interviews. The interviews are great. He interviews people we know like Ray McGovern and Christopher Bollyn. Bollyn is the reporter investigating an Israeli role in 9/11. At first the site and his topic appear ludicrous. But as you learn more and more about what exactly the radical aspect of Zionism is, it slowly becomes credible. Your first visit to the site is like the first time you were presented with the idea that 9/11 was planned.

People accuse him of anti-semitism, but such accusations are akin to calling 9/11 Truth activists tin-foil nuts. He is not anti-semitic. He is trying to look into the more radical elements of Zionism just like there are radical elements of Christianity and Islam. I personally don't believe our government alone was capable of carrying out 9/11, and Smith does well to reveal the Israeli fingerprints. (Larry Silverstein for one) Needless to say, the Mossad would have a strong motive in carrying out 9/11 because it turned most Americans against Muslims and led to the war in Afghanistan and Iraq (and Iran?). All of this benefits Israel, and we would be wise to thoroughly investigate this possibility.

Fighting terror with torture: As Bush determines what is acceptable, Israel’s decisions offer insight.

Fighting terror with torture
As Bush determines what is acceptable, Israel’s decisions offer insight.

Mohammed Barghouthi, a Palestinian Authority official interrogated by Israel for several weeks last summer, demonstrates the position he was held in during questioning.

JERUSALEM | Long before the Bush administration launched its war on terrorism, opened secret detention centers or debated the wisdom of harsh interrogation techniques, Israel wrestled with similar questions about protecting itself.

President Bush soon must prepare an executive order that will outline what methods the CIA can use under a law signed last week. Backers of the law contend that their measure will prevent the use of the most contentious methods, such as “water-boarding.” But the law gives the president broad discretion to decide what tactics to approve, and Israel’s experience could provide guidance.

Since Israel’s Supreme Court curbed the use of extreme techniques in 1999, human rights studies suggest that interrogators are relying more on psychological tricks, informants and electronic surveillance to solicit information.

The Case Against the Mossad and Israel: Wolfowitz, Silverstein and the Dancing Israelis

Although the Mossad's warnings regarding 9/11 appear to exonerate it, that is not the case. Former Mossad case officer Victor Ostrovsky in his two excellent books By Way of Deception and The Other Side of Deception demonstrates that the Mossad often uses useless warnings as a way of making themselves look innocent when in fact the opposite is true:

http://www.marwenmedia.com/articles_images/BookReview.html

"Admony, then the head of Mossad, decided they would simply give the Americans the usual general warning, a vague notice that they had reason to believe someone might be planning an operation against them. But this was so general and so commonplace, it was like sending a weather report; unlikely to raise any particular alarm or prompt increased security precautions. In the six months following receipt of this information, for example, there were more than 100 general warnings of car-bomb attacks. One more would not heighten US concerns or surveillance."

"Admony, in refusing to give the Americans specific information on the truck, said, "No, we're not going to protect the Americans. They're a big country. Send only the regular information."

Once one understands the methodology of the Mossad and its management of false flag attacks - as well as the massive involvement of the US - Israeli axis in manufacturing the "War on Terror" - to accept the idea that the Mossad is innocent because it gave weak and useless warnings to its partner in crime the CIA becomes absurd.

Police: Enough evidence found to indict Katsav on sex charges
By Yuval Yoaz and Jonathan Lis, Haaretz Correspondents

The team investigating President Moshe Katsav for alleged rape and other charges presented its intermim findings to Attorney General Menachem Mazuz on Tuesday.

Investigators believe the material collected so far contains enough evidence for at least three charges in the affair.

Israel's "Clean Break" + PNAC's "Rebuilding America's Defenses" = 9/11?

I'm sure most here are familiar with PNAC's "Rebuilding America's Defenses (RAD)" paper, which states "...the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor." However, we never hear much about an Israeli policy paper that preceded PNAC's RAD plan by four years entitled "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm".

The excerpt from the article below explains how Israel's "Clean Break" policy paper and PNAC's "RAD" plan are intimately related:

ONCE A COMPANY MAN, ALWAYS A COMPANY MAN, September 6, 2006

[SNIP]

The $64,000.00 question of “Who done it?“ is found in the brainchild of Richard Perle and Benjamin Netanyahu…”A Clean Break”, the founding document of PNAC.

A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm

Commonly referred to as the "Clean Break" report, was prepared in 1996 by a study group led by Richard Perle. The other participants were James Colbert, Charles Fairbanks, Jr, Douglas Feith, Robert Loewenberg, Jonathan Torop, David Wurmser and Meyrav Wurmser
