The 1993 "bombing" of the WTC, a transparent false-flag op

Ralph Schoenman was recently in NYC for some lectures, parts of which were broadcast on local, soon to be gone, community access cable. In connection with false flag operations, Schoenman mentioned the 1993 WTC bombing and gave the documentation regarding the Times account which blew the whistle on the FBI operation.
So the truth comes out in plain sight (excuse the pun), but it doesn't matter, since it's never repeated and certainly not part of the official story, the only story that is allowed.
In his lecture Schoenman laid out his theory that the Blind Sheik was brought in to this country against Egypt's protests to serve as a patsy in these false flag operations and was aided by the CIA while in Egypt as part of a larger operation to destabilize secular Arab governments.
This reminder from 1993 brings up again the question of Clinton's involvement in these shadow operations. This false flag operation was intended to jump start the war against the Muslim community in the CIA/FBI creation of an Islamic villain and permanent war that is their mission.
Did Clinton know in advance? After the incident, what effort if any did he make to get to the bottom of it? In all likelihood, the best that can be said is that he kept a hands off approach. --Ronald

"Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart
Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast"

By Ralph Blumenthal

Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building
a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center,
and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting
harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after
the blast.

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb
and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by
an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer,
Emad Salem, should be used, the informer said.

The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of
hours of tape recordings that Mr. Salem secretly made of his
talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as
being in a far better position than previously known to foil
the February 26th bombing of New York City's tallest towers.

The explosion left six people dead, more than a thousand people
injured, and damages in excess of half-a-billion dollars.
Four men are now on trial in Manhattan Federal Court
in that attack.

Mr. Salem, a 43-year-old former Egyptian Army officer, was used
by the Government to penetrate a circle
of Muslim extremists who are now charged in two bombing cases:
the World Trade Center attack, and a foiled plot to destroy
the United Nations, the Hudson River tunnels, and other
New York City landmarks. He is the crucial witness in the
second bombing case, but his work for the Government was
erratic, and for months before the World Trade Center blast,
he was feuding with the F.B.I.

Supervisor `Messed It Up'

After the bombing, he resumed his undercover work. In an
undated transcript of a conversation from that period,
Mr. Salem recounts a talk he had had earlier with an agent
about an unnamed F.B.I. supervisor who, he said,

"came and messed it up."
"He requested to meet me in the hotel,"

Mr. Salem says of the supervisor.

"He requested to make me to testify, and if he didn't
push for that, we'll be going building the bomb with
a phony powder, and grabbing the people who was
involved in it. But since you, we didn't do that."

The transcript quotes Mr. Salem as saying that he wanted to
complain to F.B.I. Headquarters in Washington about the
Bureau's failure to stop the bombing, but was dissuaded by
an agent identified as John Anticev.

Mr. Salem said Mr. Anticev had told him,

"He said, I don't think that the New York people would
like the things out of the New York Office to go to
Washington, D.C."

Another agent, identified as Nancy Floyd, does not dispute
Mr. Salem's account, but rather, appears to agree with it,
saying of the `New York people':

"Well, of course not, because they don't want to
get their butts chewed."

The result of the explosion:
# 6 civilians killed
# Over 1,000 injured
# 105 firefighters injured - 5 admitted to local hospitals
# reinforced floors almost 30 inches think blasted away on 3 levels below grade, plus a concourse level floor, leaving a crater about 150 feet in diameter at it's largest point.
# On the B1 level, the operations control center of the Port Authority Police Department (and the fire command station forthe complex) was heavily damaged and rendered out of service.
# On the B2 level, various walls of elevator shafts and freshair plenums severely damaged, allowing smoke to enter and rise through the cores of both towers.
# Numerous concrete walls destroyed or damaged.
# 200,000 cubic feet of water poured into the lowest grade from damaged refrigeration unit supplies (from the Hudson River), sewer lines, fresh domestic water lines, steam pipes, and condensate return. Water 1.5 feet deep across the B6 level.
# 124 parked cars destroyed, 102 damaged.
# Partition walls blown out onto PATH train mezzanine.
# Numerous telephone conduits collapsed from ceiling onto cars (but phone service was not cut, miraculously).
# Fire alarm and public address systems out of service.
# Elevators out of service.
# Water cooled emergency generators shut down due to overheating when their water supply was cut. This disabled the emergency lighting.
# Sprinklers & standpipes out of service.
# 2,500 tons of rubble removed.
# Clean up effort involved 2,700 workers per day, plus a total of 160,000 gallons of cleaning fluid and 200,00 gallons of detergent.
# Restoration cost: $250,000,000.
