FTR #325 The Past Is Prologue

MP3 Side 1 [1] | Side 2 [2]
RealAu­dio [3]

The first pro­gram record­ed after the 9/11/2001 ter­ror­ist attacks on the World Trade Cen­ter and the Pen­ta­gon, FTR-325 repris­es sec­tions of two pro­grams record­ed in July of 2001. Mr. Emory sug­gests that the events delin­eat­ed in the two pro­grams might be seen as fore­shad­ow­ing the attacks.

1. The first half of the broad­cast con­sists large­ly of an excerpt of FTR-310. In July, Bush select­ed Robert Mueller, a mem­ber of his father’s Jus­tice Depart­ment, to be FBI direc­tor. (“S.F. Pros­e­cu­tor Mueller Picked to Lead FBI, Mend Its Image” by Zachary Coile and Bob Egelko; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 7/6/2001; pp. A1-A12.)

2. In his work for the Bush Jus­tice Depart­ment, Mueller was less than vig­or­ous in his role over­see­ing the pros­e­cu­tion of Gen­er­al Nor­ie­ga of Pana­ma, the bomb­ing of Pan Am Flight 103 and the BCCI case. (“In the Run­ning for FBI Direc­tor” by Sta­cy Finz; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 7/1/2001; pp. A1-A6.) All three of those inves­ti­ga­tions over­lap the Iran-Con­tra inves­ti­ga­tion and the elder Bush was prin­ci­pal­ly involved in that imbroglio. Full dis­clo­sure con­cern­ing the BCCI case could lead to inves­ti­ga­tion of James R. Bath, the North Amer­i­can busi­ness rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Bin Laden fam­i­ly and one of the financiers of George W.’s first oil ven­ture. (See Bush-Bin Laden con­nec­tions [4].)

3. Bin Laden’s forces have for­mal­ly tak­en cred­it for bomb­ing the U.S.S. Cole dur­ing the cam­paign. (“Islam­ic Mil­i­tants Brag They Bombed War­ship Cole” by Diana Elias [AP]; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 6/20/2001; p. A8.) Mr. Emory has spec­u­lat­ed that the Cole bomb­ing may have been exe­cut­ed for the ben­e­fit of the Bush cam­paign. (See also: FTR-256 [5], Lec­tures 9 [6], 10 [7].)

4. In that con­text, the broad­cast sug­gests the pos­si­bil­i­ty that some of the dif­fi­cul­ties that the FBI (among oth­er insti­tu­tions) has encoun­tered in con­nec­tion with the Cole bomb­ing may result from obstruc­tion by the Bush camp. (“U.S. Faces Hur­dles in Approach to USS Cole Probe” by David S. Cloud and Neil King, Jr.; Wall Street Jour­nal; 7/6/2001; p. A10.) The late John O’Neill (head­ing the Bin Laden inves­ti­ga­tion for the Bureau) was the focal point of appar­ent coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence activ­i­ty dur­ing the sum­mer of 2000. In August of 2001, O’Neill was appoint­ed direc­tor of secu­ri­ty for the World Trade Cen­ter and he was killed in the attack of Sep­tem­ber 11. It is Mr. Emory’s opin­ion that O’Neill was “dou­bled on” and (prob­a­bly) delib­er­ate­ly elim­i­nat­ed by a fas­cist fifth col­umn with­in this country’s polit­i­cal and nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ments.

5. This fifth col­umn, Mr. Emory believes, works for the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion. The eco­nom­ic and polit­i­cal com­po­nent of a Third Reich gone under­ground, the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion con­trols cor­po­rate Ger­many and much of the rest of the world. Cre­at­ed and run by Mar­tin Bor­mann, the orga­ni­za­tion­al genius who was the “the pow­er behind the throne” in Nazi Ger­many, the Bor­mann group is a pri­ma­ry ele­ment of the analy­sis pre­sent­ed in the For the Record pro­grams.

Those behind the attack of 9/11 include this Bor­mann fifth col­umn, the forces grouped around the Bush polit­i­cal camp as well as some of the Islam­ic extrem­ist forces that con­sti­tut­ed the tac­ti­cal arm of the oper­a­tion. This admit­ted­ly com­pli­cat­ed hypoth­e­sis is detailed in greater length in an ongo­ing series of pro­grams about 9/11.

6. The major focal point of the first side of FTR-325 con­cerns the pos­si­bil­i­ty that the appoint­ment of Mueller as head of the FBI may have been in antic­i­pa­tion of the attacks. Mr. Emory believes that it may have been nec­es­sary to maneu­ver a Bush (Senior) insid­er into posi­tion at the FBI, in order to assure oper­a­tional secu­ri­ty and to have some­one who would not inves­ti­gate the Bush/Bin Laden busi­ness con­nec­tions. (These con­nec­tions are devel­oped fur­ther in FTR-329 [8].)

7. The sec­ond side of the broad­cast con­sists large­ly of an excerpt of FTR-315. This pro­gram excerpt high­lights the death of the author of a book that alleges that, among oth­er things, George W. Bush had busi­ness con­nec­tions with the fam­i­ly of Osama Bin Laden. (“Arkansas: Author of Book Dies” [AP]; New York Times; 7/21/2001; p. A10.)

8. J.H. Hat­field, the author of For­tu­nate Son: The Mak­ing of an Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent, died from what police report­ed as an appar­ent drug over­dose. (Idem.) Mr. Emory spec­u­lates that Hat­field may have been elim­i­nat­ed in order to fur­ther obscure the Bush/Bin Laden con­nec­tion, per­haps in antic­i­pa­tion of the 9/11 inci­dent.

9. The pro­gram then excerpts FTR-277, dis­cussing the evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries con­nect­ing Bush Sr., Bush Jr., ele­ments of the CIA, the Iran Con­tra scan­dal, the oil busi­ness and the fam­i­ly of Osama Bin Laden. The dis­cus­sion reviews the links between alleged CIA oper­a­tive James R. Bath, BCCI and Arbus­to Ener­gy, George W’s first oil com­pa­ny. (For­tu­nate Son; J.H. Hat­field; St. Martin’s Press; copy­right 2000 [HC].) (The Out­law Bank; Jonathan Beat­ty and S.C. Gwynne; copy­right 1993; Ram­jack [pub­lished in the Unit­ed States by Ran­dom House].)

10. Next, the broad­cast reviews the close con­nec­tion between the Bin Laden fam­i­ly and King Ibn Saud, the founder of Sau­di Ara­bia. (“Mil­lion­aire, Ter­ror­ist, Fugi­tive” by Robin Allen; Finan­cial Times; 4/14–4/15200; p.10.)

11. Ibn Saud, in turn, was close to the Third Reich. (The Secret War Against the Jews: How West­ern Espi­onage betrayed the Jew­ish Peo­ple; Copy­right 1994 [HC]; St. Martin’s Press; ISBN0-312–11057‑x; p, 21.) (See also: FTR #’s 29, 216.)

12. Ibn Saud was also close to Allen Dulles, who in turn was deeply involved with Third Reich indus­try and finance. (Idem.) (See also: RFA #’s 1, 2, 10, Mis­cel­la­neous Archive Show M‑11, FTR #’s 29, 114, 121, 186, 248.) Dulles was also heav­i­ly involved with the Bush family’s Third Reich com­pa­nies.

13. Next, the pro­gram repris­es infor­ma­tion pre­sent­ed in FTR-308. The U.S. recent­ly donat­ed $43 mil­lion to the Tal­iban (who are shel­ter­ing Osama Bin Laden, want­ed by the Unit­ed States for, among oth­er things, bomb­ing the destroy­er U.S.S. Cole dur­ing the height of the 2000 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign.) (“Bush’s Faus­t­ian deal with the Tal­iban” by Robert Scheer; Los Ange­les Times; 5/22/2001; p. A15.) Now, of course, Bin Laden is the chief sus­pect in the attacks of Sep­tem­ber 11. (Record­ed on 9/16/2001.)
