The Legend of 9/11
Teryang posted this article on another thread last night (thanks).....it is very long (85 pages), but it drives to the heart of the whole 9/11 issue and how all explantions of the event (Israeli's, Saudi Arabia, the Bush administration) are part of a unified field theory. This is the most enlightening and disturbing article I have read about 9/11 and how the story was changed after the reporting of Omar Saeed as the conduit between Atta and the ISI. I also understand now why an investigation was delayed.....the story was still in progress until a few months ago.

This really challenges EVERYTHING you think you know about 9/11/




There's Something About Omar:
Truth, Lies, and The Legend of 9/11
by Chaim Kupferberg

http://globalresearch.ca/articles/KUP310A.html


It was almost an afterthought. On March 1, 2003, the War On Terror had finally served up the alleged paymaster of 9/11 - a shadowy Saudi by the name of Mustafa Ahmed al-Hisawi. Yet his arrest just happened to coincide with the capture of a much bigger fish - the reported 9/11 mastermind himself, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed - thus relegating Mustafa Ahmed to the footnote section of the "official" 9/11 Legend. But there was another, more explosive side to this tale. Only seventeen months before, a former London schoolboy by the name of Omar Saeed Sheikh was first exposed as the 9/11 paymaster, acting under the authority of a Pakistani general who was in Washington D.C. on September 11, meeting with the very two lawmakers who would subsequently preside over the "official" 9/11 congressional inquiry. Omar Saeed, as reported back then by CNN, was acting under the alias of...Mustafa Ahmed. So where is Omar now? Sitting in a Pakistani prison, awaiting his execution for the kidnapping of Daniel Pearl - while another man fills the shoes of his pseudonym. What follows is a reconstruction of one of the most extensive disinformation campaigns in history, and the chronicle of a legend that may now shine a devastating spotlight on some of the cliques behind 9/11 - and the FBI Director covering the paper trails.

<snip>

In short, Clarke and O'Neill would theoretically be conducting their activities in "plain sight." Under the cover of counter-terrorism, O'Neill would be building a terror legend fit for the New World Order - in the same manner that Oliver North in the '80s employed the cover of counter-terrorism to conduct, on behalf of Vice-President Bush, the illegal arms dealing operations popularly known as Iran-Contra (for which North took a decidedly light rap as the designated patsy). The main difference would be that where North would eventually be tagged as the moron of Iran-Contra, O'Neill would take his place as the martyr of 9/11.

<snip>

This relatively recent campaign to subvert the left with visions of a Jewish neocon/Zionist conspiracy dovetailed nicely with a more longstanding covert campaign - dating back more than thirty years - to build up a small but powerful right wing contingent of Jews to wean the rest from their knee-jerk liberalism (and thereby sap the strength and vigor of the traditional Democrat wing). The species of the Jewish "neo" conservative is best represented by Irving Kristol, a self-admitted former Trotskyite who had been a member of the "left-wing" Congress of Cultural Freedom (later exposed as a CIA front) before making a "sudden" right turn in the late sixties, bringing along with him a few other like-minded "disillusioned" Jews from CIA-funded "leftist" groups. The typical neo-conservative was "neo" in the sense that he would continue to hold liberal social values while espousing hard right (i.e. pro-corporate) economic views and a hawkish foreign policy - pretty much the course that American society has taken in the thirty-odd years since Kristol made his ideological "shift."
Though the history is far more complex and detailed than indicated above, the crux of the point is this: in order to neutralize the influential American Jewish community on the subject of civil rights and domestic dissent (where they historically predominated), it was not sufficient only to wean the Jews from the left, but to turn the left against the Jews by now slurring them as right wing, Zionist "imperialists" (best exemplified by Richard Perle, who is actually more a product of the national security community than of the Jewish community).
In concert with this strategy was a plan - also dating back more than thirty years - to wean the South from the Democrats by promoting a fundamentalist Christianity that grew in counter-point to the overall loosening social values. The typical fundamentalist Christian Republican would hold conservative social views while espousing hard right (i.e. pro-corporate) economic views and a hawkish foreign policy (best exemplified by John Ashcroft, who is actually more a product of a deeply cynical political community than of the community of belief).


more, much more.........

1. Before wading into 85 pages, would you please summarize
What's the gist of this article that "changes everything"?

If it's "gov. negligence, CIA negligence, bureaucratic snafus, or criminal neglect", just say so.

2. Thrust of the Article
There are competing theories about who did it, but the underlining thesis of the "War on Terror" is unquestioned.

The focus of the article addresses our media's role in the transformation of some of the official key 9/11 players and the ongoing modification/reconstruction of the "9/11 Legend".

The author makes no attempt to promote his theory of who, how and why....just that the power elites have promoted conflicting theories to suit the audience that they are marketing their version to.

I probably am not doing justice to the article, but the points that are made have me questioning everything, including Graham and O'Neil's role in 9/11. Ultimately, he seems to argue that those that know are compromised into silence.

3. I don't see why you'd question THEIR role in 9/11
"the points that are made have me questioning everything, including Graham and O'Neil's role in 9/11. Ultimately, he seems to argue that those that know are compromised into silence."

Graham is CIA; his family owned the CIA's newspaper (WP - STILL the CIA's most-trusted paper to plant stories in).

O'Neil's situation is a little murkier in my mind. Sounds like a possible double-out or something similar.

4. what's a "double out?"
I too, found that article FASCINATING.

Dont' quite know what to make of it. O'Neill as willing "dupe" to help build the Osama legend, so by the time 9-11 rolled around they'd have someone "high profile" to blame.

So, was O'Neill truly hunting or was he playing along, then disposed of after his usefulness?

There could also be some clever disinformation woven into this story.

Hard to tell, but would like to hear more insight from others.

Captain Mike
