Saudi 9/11 Collusion Included Aid to Hijackers, Cash for al-Qaeda – Lawyer

0

from Sputnik News:

New York District Judge George Daniels has struck down a Saudi bid to drop several lawsuits by families looking for compensation over Riyadh’s alleged role in the terror attacks against the US on September 11, 2001. Speaking to Sputnik, attorney and 9/11 families representative Andrew Maloney explained what exactly his clients were looking for.

Sputnik: How many families are involved in the lawsuit?

Andrew Maloney: There are several thousand families. Almost 3,000 people were killed on September 11, and there have been over a hundred [other] people who have died – rescue workers who have become sick from the rescue efforts; there are also numerous, literally thousands of people who were injured, and they’re all part of the lawsuit.

Court Rules There Is Enough Evidence for Victims to Sue Saudi Arabia for Role in 9/11

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

New York, NY — Last year, for the first time since that fateful September morning 16 years ago, families of victims of the 9/11 terror attacks used a new law to go after Saudi Arabia in lawsuits for their role in the attacks. After evidence was revealed during the lawsuit showing the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington may have funded a “dry run” for the hijackings carried out by two Saudi employees, Saudi Arabia went into panic mode. In response, Saudi Arabia quickly attempted to use their pull inside the United States to have the lawsuits thrown out. However, this attempt has now failed.

According to Reuters, “U.S. District Judge George Daniels in Manhattan said the plaintiffs’ allegations “narrowly articulate a reasonable basis” for him to assert jurisdiction over Saudi Arabia under the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), a 2016 federal law.”

No evidence hijackers crashed planes on 9/11: Experts

0

from Press TV:

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 in the United States were covert operations carried out by Israeli elements in the name of Islam to provoke the US to wage wars against Muslim nations and Israel’s adversaries, experts say.

“This was a false flag operation; elements of the US government protected it and the team that carried it out was primarily consisting of agents of Israel,” said Kevin Barrett, an author and 9/11 researcher in Madison, Wisconsin.

“Saudi Arabia and Iran have nothing to do with this; Saudi Arabia was used to set up the hijacker patsies,” Barrett told Press TV on Friday. “This was an operation against the entire Muslim world.”

Q: THEIR ‘BIGGEST FEAR’… HAS COME TRUE

from SGT Report:

Q posted something very significant on March 17th. “Their biggest fear”, referring to the treacherous Zionist cabal, is a “public awakening”. In this micro-doc I explain how their worst fear has come true. And as fate would have it, the great awakening is due in large part to their biggest illusion, the events of 9/11. Ironic.

“So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known.” Matthew 10:26

The storm is coming.

ANOTHER EX-CIA OFFICER SPEAKS ON 9/11 & ISIS: “STORIES MANUFACTURED BY A SMALL NUMBER OF PEOPLE”

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

*This is an older article of ours that we are republishing to bring awareness to the fact that multiple studies have now determine that 9/11 was a controlled demolition. The latest piece of evidence comes from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, by Dr. J Leory Husley and his team of researchers, who have confirmed that the official explanation surrounding World Trade Centre Building 7 and why it fell is completely false. He is the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department Chair at the University, and he made a presentation of the findings of the study live on September 6, 2017, at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. It included the detailed findings and conclusions he and his team found as well as the next steps for the study, which included peer review as well as an open period for feedback and criticism. You can read more about that here.

We’re living in an age where Western governments advocate for complete transparency, yet they punish whistleblowers who come forward to reveal important information that the public has a right to know about. The world is dying for information, which is why we have brave souls like Edward Snowden and Julian Assange (to name a few) doing the work that they are doing. Over the past few years alone, we’ve seen many insiders share information in order to educate the masses about what’s really happening on our planet. Simply put, our word is shrouded by secrecy. According to the estimates of some historians, the United States classifies more than 500 million pages of documents every single year, which is why organizations like Wikileaks, and whistleblowers from various agencies, remain so important to us all.

“The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda, and any informed intelligence officer knows this. But, there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an intensified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive TV watchers to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the United States.”

I’ve shared this quote multiple times. It reveals a truth which various politicians, academics, and other professionals have been trying to impress upon us for years: the war on terror is a fabrication. It is based on false premises and used to justify the invasion of other countries for ulterior motives. Of course, this is a perspective you’ll never see on mainstream news.

One of the most recent person making noise from the world of intelligence is Amaryllis Fox, a former CIA clandestine service officer. When she was a teenager she worked with the Burmese democracy movement, which landed her a short stint in a Burmese prison at the age of 18. She eventually developed an algorithm to predict terrorist activity under thesis advisor Dan Byman, a leading thinker on terrorism and US security policy at Oxford university. Soon after, she began work as a political and terrorism analyst for SE Asia, commuting between Langley and Georgetown to finish her degree in 2004. Following graduation, she moved into the operational training program and served as a Clandestine Service Officer overseas, for approximately 10 years. You can learn more about her journey in this TEDx talk she gave a few years ago.

She offers a comment on terrorism rhetoric which really stood out for me: “Those are stories manufactured by a really small number of people on both side that amass a great deal of power and wealth by convincing the rest of us to keep killing each other.:

She is speaking to ‘false flag terrorism,’ the idea that terrorist activities are created, or that ‘terrorists’ are forced into certain situations, or brain washed, by Western military and intelligence agencies in order to convince the masses that there is a constant terror threat. That we are pitted against each other on purpose by a small group of elite people who have lots of power.

While she doesn’t go into as much detail as others have and is not really considered a “whistleblower,” she offers important truths nonetheless.

As far as her comments regarding a ‘very small group of people’ are concerned, perhaps the video below, taken from the Thrive documentary, could provide some insight as to who these people are.

‘It’s Just a Matter of Time’ – Cybersecurity Expert Warns About Cyber 9/11

0

from Sputnik News:

With modern network-connected infrastructure being vulnerable to cyberattacks, Lars Hilse, a digital strategy consultant and expert on cyber terrorism, shared his thoughts with Sputnik about how online terrorism and crime could evolve and how cryptocurrencies could make cyberspace a safer place.

Sputnik: In 2014 you wrote that the next 9/11 would be a cyber version of the 9/11 attack. Can you tell us about that theory and to what extent your prediction has come true?

Lars Hilse: It came true to a small degree in the 2015 attacks on the television network TV5Monde in France. In March 2015, we had a physical attack by the cyber caliphate that took down 11 satellite TV stations. With the ever-increasing complexity of our operating systems, the likelihood of network-connected infrastructure such as power, electricity and water supply is open to attack by cyber attackers. With all this infrastructure being so vulnerable, I think it’s just a matter of time before somebody has the “clever” idea” to take it all out.

Sputnik: What can you say about the hacks we have recently seen surrounding cryptocurrency, such as that of the Japanese exchange Coincheck, which was hacked for $530 million? What is the chance of ever finding those who stole all that money? 

Lars Hilse: I would tend to say that we’ve seen hiccups in the development of this system, but we’ve also seen hiccups in the distribution of money. Even today, central banks are still trying to make their money less counterfeitable. I think the Internet wasn’t made with security in mind, that’s why we are going to see more such hiccups along the way until someone finds a solution essentially building Internet on top of the Internet, which does have security and allows us to do sensitive things. But the hacks, I think, are difficult to trace. […] It’s just a matter of time until the insurance industry picks up on this and insurance products will be available to counter such risks.

Sputnik: We have recently seen a huge plunge in cryptocurrency rates. Do you have any thoughts about what has happened on the Bitcoin market recently and how susceptible virtual money really is to criminal manipulation and insider trading? How can people protect themselves against this?

Saudi Arabia Asks for All 9/11 Lawsuits to Be Dropped

0

from The Anti Media:

Michael Kellogg, a lawyer hired by Saudi Arabia, has asked the American judge tasked with the case looking into the Kingdom’s involvement in the 9/11 attacks in US in 2001 to drop any lawsuits linking the Kingdom to the attacks.

The request was made during the local hearings in Manhattan, New York investigating the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, according to Bloomberg.

Kellogg told the US District Judge George Daniels at the start of the hearing, which lasted all day yesterday, that “conclusions, speculation, hearsay, are not enough” to link Saudi Arabia to the attacks.

He also said there is no evidence of Saudi Arabia’s involvement or support of Al-Qaeda.

He argued that the victims have not provided any evidence to back their cases and “reports from the 9/11 Commission, FBI, CIA and 9/11 Review Commission found no proof Saudi Arabia backed the attacks”.

Lawyers for the 9/11 victims and their families claim Saudi Arabia directed money through its charities to the terrorist group. They supported their case with sworn statements from two former FBI officials and former Florida senator Bob Graham, an ex-chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence, in which they provide their opinions that Saudi officials in the US provided support to two of the 11 September hijackers.

Letting It Happen: JFK’s Murder, 9/11 and the False Flag Playbook

from The Sleuth Journal:

All it takes to carry out plots such as the JFK assassination and September 11, is for the authorities tasked with defense to orchestrate a way to let down their guard without being exposed for criminal negligence.

Look at how John F. Kennedy was killed. Everything about the president’s motorcade that afternoon in Dallas was wrong. For starters, the windows in the president’s limo were down. That goes against all common sense given where the president was and how many threats existed against him.

There were also open windows in the office buildings along the route. A basic rule in Secret Service procedure is no open windows. But it appears that at least one open window existed that day because shots were fired from the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository.

Videos and photographs from onlookers show numerous windows open in several others, including the Dal Tex Building, which may have harbored additional shooters.

Inexplicably, there were no Secret Service agents walking, running, or driving beside the president’s limo. How could that happen if someone did not see to it that officers were ordered to step down in the line of duty? How could Kennedy have been left so vulnerable? Why were the servicemen riding behind him and in front of him, when the only place they should have been is in the direct line of fire? Their only job was to protect him and they failed in an astonishingly pathetic way.

To make matters worse, Dallas officials publicized the route before the president’s arrival. Kennedy’s upcoming trip to Dallas was first announced to the public in September 1963. The exact motorcade route was finalized on November 18 and announced to the public a few days before November 22. On the day of the parade, the limo itself was directed to take a wide left turn on Elm Street, slowed to less than 15 mph (when it should have been going at least 45 mph), and ultimately came to a complete stop near the infamous Grassy Knoll. This sequence of events created a kill zone that made the president a sitting duck.

Also conspicuous is that no assailant was caught at the scene of the crime. Oswald supposedly had enough time to race down four flights of stairs and grab a Coke before encountering a Dallas police officer in the lunchroom. The officer questioned him and then let him go out the front of the building. According to the Warren Commission, after Oswald left the depository, he walked seven blocks before getting on a bus.

When the bus got stuck in traffic, Oswald walked to a nearby bus station, hailed a taxi, took it several blocks past his rooming house, and then hiked back to the rooming house. He arrived at his rooming house around 1:00 pm (30 min after Kennedy was shot). According to his housekeeper, Oswald left within 5 minutes and went outside by the bus stop. At 1:15 pm, Oswald purportedly shot and killed officer J.D.

Tippit. After killing Tippit, Oswald was seen traveling on foot toward the Texas Theater. About 1:35 pm, a manager of a Hardy’s Shoe Store noticed him and called the authorities. He was arrested soon thereafter by some of the most prepared and punctual police officers conceivable.

Where was the Secret Service in all of this? They had basically melted away as a defense shield for the president and had all but vanished as a pursuer of his killers after his death.

Furthermore, it is not gossip to point out that the Secret Service, the night before the assassination, apparently got blitzed till 4:00 am in a nightclub. Eyewitnesses claim that several of them were drinking Everclear, which is close to pure alcohol. The Secret Service later testified that this outing did not compromise their performance, but there is a reason why drinking during a presidential detail is against the law. Their lethargy was painfully evident when they allowed the First Lady to almost exit the vehicle after the shots were fired. Jackie Kennedy scrambled to the back of the limo to grab a piece of her husband’s skull and almost fell out of the moving car entirely. If the Secret Service were doing their job, she would have been pinned to the floor of the limo and protected from gunfire immediately. Undeniably, that was one glaring mistake that would not have been made by an elite unit of bodyguards.

And where was the surveillance intelligence leading up to the parade?

Oswald was recognized as a potential assailant by multiple agencies both inside and outside of Dallas. In fact, it has been discovered that actual warnings were sent to the FBI by Oswald (or an Oswald imposter) stating that he wanted to kill Kennedy. How could a blatant Communist sympathizer such as Lee Harvey Oswald, if he were the lone assassin, be able to get within 1,000 feet of the man he had proclaimed was his target just weeks before?

These questions are worth asking. In High Treason, authors Robert Groden and Harrison E. Livingston include a quote by JFK assassination researcher, Col. Fletcher Prouty, who said, “This is the greatest single clue to the assassination. Who had the power to call off or drastically reduce the usual security precautions that always are in effect whenever a President travels?…the power source that arranged that murder was on the inside…They have the means to reduce normal security and permit the choice of a hazardous route. It also had had the continuing power to cover up that crime.”

Turning now to September 11, it appears that the same playbook was used during the “terrorist” attacks as was employed during the JFK murder. In both cases the conspirators merely let down their guard to allow an attack to occur under their watch.

Where was the air force? Is it not the best in the world? Where were our top gun pilots? Where were our state of the art fighter jets and super advanced radar systems? How could we allow our airspace to be invaded on such a catastrophic level? For Christ’s sake, the Pentagon was hit. This is one of the most well defended fortresses in the history of nations.

Yet the world was told that the shield of protection around it simply faltered. Why were there no scrambled aircraft to intercept that out of control 747 before it reached the walls of our Bastille? Dazed and confused war games is not a legitimate answer.

And how could there be no video footage of this mammoth airliner crashing into the Pentagon? Is not the modern Pentagon complex one of the most photographed areas imaginable? There must have been thousands of cameras pinpointed on that building; yet to this date, there has never been an unambiguous tape of a plane hitting the Pentagon- not a single frame. (We do know that at least 80 cameras in and around the site were confiscated by the FBI, never to be seen again.)

Since 9/11, The US Govt Has ‘Lost’ $58,000 —EVERY SINGLE SECOND

0

by Rachel Blevins, The Free Thought Project:

The U.S. government went from missing $2.3 trillion on the day before 9/11, to missing more than $30 trillion today—costing Americans $58,386 every second.

When U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld revealed that the Pentagon was missing $2.3 trillion on Sept. 10, 2001, it seemed like a massive amount—little did the American people know that the events that would occur the next day would wipe the missing money from the headlines, and over the next 16 years, the amount of money the government is missing would increase at a rate in excess of $58,000 per second.

While $2.3 trillion may seem like a lot, another government agency admitted to losing triple the amount in 2009, when former Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman admitted that the Federal Reserve could not account for $9 trillion.

“I have a copy of the Inspector General Act here in front of me. It says, among other things, that it’s your responsibility to conduct and supervise audits and investigations related to the programs and operations of your agency,” Former Rep. Alan Grayson said during a special hearing.

“That’s correct,” Coleman replied.

“So I’m asking you, if your agency has, in fact according to Bloomberg, extended 9 trillion dollars in credit—which, by the way, works out to $30,000 for every single man, woman and child in this country—I’d like to know, if you’re not responsible for investigating that, then who is?” Grayson inquired.

“We have responsibility for the Federal Reserve’s programs and operations—to conduct audits and investigations in that area,” Coleman replied. She went on to claim that she could not comment about specific details while the Federal Reserve was in the middle of a review.

Even when Rep. Grayson specifically asked, “Are you telling me that nobody at the Federal Reserve is keeping track on a regular basis of the losses that occur on what is now a 2-trillion-dollar portfolio?” IG Coleman refused to give him a straight answer.

Doug Casey on What Happens After the Next 9/11

by Doug Casey, International Man:

Is a police state in the US possible? Absolutely.

That’s because people are essentially the same the world over, regardless of their culture, religion, race, or what-have-you. A certain percentage of them are sociopaths.

There is a standard distribution of sociopaths across time and space. It’s a function of Pareto’s Law, better known as the 80-20 rule. 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Another 20% are responsible for 80% of the crime. 20% of the population always winds up with 80% of the wealth. And so forth, through all areas of human endeavor. This observation can be represented by a bell-shaped curve—a “standard distribution”—with a small minority at each extreme, but the large majority in the middle. The people who will take us to a police state are sociopaths—criminal personalities who don’t respect the liberty or property of others. And sociopaths gravitate towards government, and eventually come to control it.

My view is that 80% of human beings are basically decent, get along, go along types. 20% are what you might call potential trouble sources, that can go either way. But then you take 20% of that 20% and you’re dealing with the sociopaths.

When social conditions reach a certain stage these really bad guys come out from under their rocks and take advantage of the situation. We’re seeing that right now in the US, across the political spectrum. Just as we’ve seen in the past in hundreds of places throughout history.

A major tipping point occurred sixteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, with the attacks in New York and Washington. They were disastrous. But not nearly as disastrous as the government’s reaction to them.

Among them the creation of the Department of Homeland Security. Anybody that speaks German knows that a reasonable translation of Homeland Security is Geheime Staatspolizei, which is usually abbreviated to Gestapo. Anybody that goes through airline security these days should ask themselves, “Where the hell did they find these people? Didn’t they have jobs before they went to work for this moronic agency?” The answer is that there are people out there who like wearing costumes, are willing to boss, herd, interrogate, and go through the dirty laundry of their fellow citizens. They take their jobs seriously and you better not even look at them sideways. There’s no reason to believe it’s going to get better as they groove into their jobs, and their employer cements itself into place. More likely the trend will accelerate.

Is America currently a police state? Well, let’s see. You can still get in your car and go anywhere, although you might be stopped by the police and you might be detained if your papers aren’t in order. Or the officer thinks you’re not properly respectful. Or you have “too much” cash.

Was there any particular day that Germany became a police state in the 1930s? I’m not sure you can put your finger on any one particular day, even after Hitler was legally and democratically elected. It was a progression, with new laws, new regulations, new taxes every day. While more fear and hysteria were worked up among the populace. Kristallnacht didn’t occur the day after the National Socialists took power.

It’s a case of the frog being put in a kettle of water where the temperature is gradually raised to a boil. That’s what’s occurring in the US. After 9/11, in addition to Homeland Security, we got the Patriot Act, with, among other things, its suspension of habeas corpus. That means that the government can lock anybody up for any reason and not even have to tell them why. Accuse them of being an “enemy combatant”—a neologism that justifies anything, and is robotically and thoughtlessly accepted by Boobus americanus—and anything is possible. Including a trip to a CIA black site in some Third World hellhole. This is something I thought was settled in Western Civilization with the Magna Carta and King John. But we’re going backwards in most areas of personal freedom. And America, of all places, is leading the way—even while falling behind economically.
