THIS DAY IN HISTORY
Al-Qaeda Tried To Destroy WTC With Help Of FBI? Two terrorists parked a van filled with explosives in an underground garage, but failed to destroy the Twins. By Mladen Starčević. Translated by Karmen Horvat
Ramzi Yousef and Eyad Ismoli parked their red van in an underground garage of the World Trade Centre North Tower on February 26, 1993. They stepped outside, gazed at each other, lit a 60-metre fuse and walked away.
Twenty minutes later, at 12:17 hours, the bomb made a 30 mete hole through four underground concrete stories, killing six and injuring 1,042 people.
Smoke of the explosion went up the stairs all the way to the 93 rd floor, but the Twins were left standing, probably to Yousef and Eyad`s disappointment.

On Feb. 26, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Huntington Beach, delivered a 60-minute speech detailing how the Bush administration has “intentionally obstructed Congress” in its investigations for the past seven years.
The first part of Rohrabacher’s speech covered his investigation of the ties between 1995 “Oklahoma City bomber and murderer Terry Nichols” and Al Qaeda’s terrorist leader Ramzi Yousef, “the mastermind of the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993,” who were both in Cebu City in the Philippines during the same time frame, both using similar bombs, two years apart, to blow up American targets.

On February 26, 2008, Congressional Representative Dana Rohrabacher of California made some very interesting observations on the House floor; *
"In my tenure as a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, both as chairman and ranking member of an investigative subcommittee, I have witnessed firsthand behavior by the Bush administration which I find deeply troubling.
The disdain and uncooperative nature that this administration has shown toward Congress, including Republican Members, is so egregious that I can no longer assume that it is simply bureaucratic incompetence or isolated mistakes. Rather, I have come to the sad conclusion that this administration has intentionally obstructed Congress' rightful and constitutional duties.
Tonight I will discuss some serious examples of this administration's contemptuous disregard for the authority delegated to Congress by the Constitution. This bad attitude has consistently manifested itself in a sophomoric resentment toward Congress' constitutional role as an equal branch of government. The result has been an executive branch too insecure to let Congress do its job, an executive branch that sees Congress, even when Republicans held the majority, as a rival and a spoiler, rather than as elected representatives of the American people playing a rightful role in establishing policy for our great country.
Unfortunately, when the President of the United States rejects the legitimacy of congressional prerogatives, there are serious consequences. Tonight, I will provide examples of how this administration for the past 7 years has undercut congressional investigators, has lied to Members of Congress, and has forged ahead with secret deals in spite of efforts and pleas by Congress to be informed, if not involved.

THE NIGHTMARE of many years ago was reliving itself that Black Tuesday. I was on a business trip in Minneapolis. As I was driving, two radio program hosts went hysterical about a fire in one of the towers of the World Trade Center. A few minutes later, they became even more hysterical as a plane had crashed into the second tower.
Project Bojinka! This was one of the plans I had discovered on the computer of Ramzi Yousef in 1995 at the Josefa Apartments in Manila when a fire, accidentally triggered by Abdul Karim Murad and Yousef, attracted the attention of security personnel who called the police. Murad was apprehended while Yousef was able to escape to Pakistan where he was ultimately caught.
Ok, I've just put together some sources, as always. A lot of stuff, as always, too. Make up your mind and decide what this means!

Brooklyn. The Brooklyn connection is a smoking gun, a direct trace to false flag operations!

"They were talking all the time about targeting American symbols," says the
FBI undercover informant, "the Empire State Building, the Statue of
Liberty. A few of the guys came to the mosque to pray and go home. But
others gathered to conspire in small groups, talking in deep, low voices.
