by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:
On September 12, LaRouchePAC will host a webcast covering one aspect of the crimes of 9/11, the takedown of Thin Thread, the surveillance system developed by an NSA team working under Bill Binney, which would have alerted U.S. intelligence to the 9/11 attack in time to preempt it. And, in the Southern District of New York Manhattan federal court, on September 10—now, some 19 years later—a Magistrate Judge finally granted the 9/11 families the ability to depose some of the Saudis active in the plot which murdered 3,000 Americans. Prince Bandar, the former Saudi Ambassador to Washington and close colleague of the Bush family, is one of the individuals to be deposed.
As former CIA Director John Brennan testified to Congress, it was British intelligence and their NATO colleagues who first demanded Donald Trump’s head, saying that if Trump’s alleged connections with Russia did not become a primary investigative mandate, the “special relationship” between the United States and Britain might be ended.
What’s the connection?
On August 16, 2013, at a LaRouche PAC webcast, Lyndon LaRouche declared war on the authors of 9/11 and condemned the ongoing coverup being conducted by Barack Obama and then FBI Director Robert S. Mueller. This declaration followed years of investigation of the attacks conducted by LaRouche and his colleagues at Executive Intelligence Review. Here is what LaRouche said:
“The authors are the British Queen and the Saudi kingdom…. 9/11 was a combination of the British Queen, of the military units of the British Empire, and the Saudi kingdom. And these are the forces which continue to the present time…. So, what you already have, is you have a Presidency of the United States now, that at the highest level, is covering up for the role of the British monarchy and the Saudi kingdom in 9/11. They’re all guilty! The whole crowd are guilty; they’re traitors to the United States. And they committed high crimes, and not just misdemeanors….
“Who are the people who covered up the lie of 9/11? 9/11 was done by no one but the British Queen, the BAE military capacity, and the Saudi kingdom, and they did it explicitly. And George Bush’s family was an integral part of the accomplices. If you want to talk about this issue, that’s what you have to bring forth. Everything else is a fraud; everything else is fake!”
In December 2000, the editors of EIR submitted a detailed memorandum to then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, demanding that the government of Great Britain be placed on the U.S. government’s list of State Sponsors of Terrorism.
The document was exclusively based on evidence of the British protection and sponsorship of major terrorist organizations presented by governments from around the world. Among the terrorist attacks conducted from safe havens in London were the 1997 Luxor, Egypt massacre of Japanese tourists, carried out by Islamic Jihad; a large number of brutal Chechen separatist attacks on Russian civilians throughout the Caucasus region; narco-terrorist assaults by two of the most notorious cells in South America—Peru’s Sendero Luminoso and the Colombian FARC. The memo identified Osama bin Laden by name, and stated that he maintained a residence in England, and a propaganda office in London, led by radical jihadists, who later turned out to be on the payroll of Britain’s MI5 and MI6.
Albright ignored the memorandum, and as the direct result, opportunities to take punitive action against the “Londonistan” terrorism hub were missed.
In a dossier published just before LaRouche’s dramatic August 2013 webcast, EIR noted that “the wellspring of all significant international terrorism today is the Anglo-Saudi imperial alliance, expressed most vividly in the 1985 Al-Yamamah arrangements between London and Riyadh that persist to this day. Al-Yamamah (“The Dove”) was ostensibly an arms-for-oil barter deal, first brokered by then–Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States Prince Bandar bin-Sultan and then–British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Under the cover of the arms-for-oil deal, over the succeeding 28 years, hundreds of billions of dollars in cash have been squirreled into offshore banks accounts in such notorious havens as the British and Dutch Caribbean Islands, Switzerland, and Dubai.
