Developing information from previous broadcasts about operational relationships between neo-Nazis and Islamofascists, this program presents and underscores evidentiary tributaries connecting these elements in aspects of the events of 9/11. (For a good overview of some of the past and present relationships between Nazis, fascists and Islamic extremists, see: “The Swastika and the Crescent” by Martin A. Lee; Southern Poverty Law Center’s Intelligence Report. In addition, be sure to check out three very important articles by Kevin Coogan: “The Mysterious Achmed Huber: Friend to Hitler, Allah and Ibn Ladin?” ; “Report on Islamists, The Far Right, and Al Taqwa” ; and “Achmed Huber, The Avalon Gemeinschaft, and the Swiss ‘New Right’”.) ; as well as: “Islamism, Fascism and Terrorism” [Parts I-IV] by Marc Erikson [Asia Times].) After discussion of National Alliance founder William Pierce’s 1998 foreshadowing of the 9/11 attacks on New York City, the program reviews the climactic episode of Pierce’s The Turner Diaries—a low- level suicide aerial attack on the Pentagon. Interestingly (and perhaps significantly) the Pentagon attack takes place on November 9—a date with much significance for the Nazis. A German (or other European) would write November 9th as—9/11! Much of the rest of the program weighs evidence of Islamist/neo-Nazi collaboration in recent terrorist acts in the US, including the 9/11 and anthrax attacks, as well as examination of a section of The Turner Diaries describing a plan to sabotage a nuclear power plant and disrupt much of the nation’s power grid.

Program Highlights Include: Review of alleged collaboration between Al Qaeda-linked elements in the Phillipines and Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols; the inspirational role played by The Turner Diaries in the life of the late Dr. Larry Ford; Ford’s and Aryan Nations anthrax agent Larry Wayne Harris’s operations in the Henderson, Nevada area; a motel at which some of the 9/11 hijackers and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh apparently stayed; review of McVeigh’s connections with unnamed Middle Eastern personages; a recent arrest of paramilitary ultra-rightists in connection with an apparent plot to stage domestic terror incidents; the disappearance of radioactive rockets in the former USSR; an article (not included in the original broadcast) that sets forth a claim by an Al Qaeda-linked group that they were responsible for power outages in the United Kingdom and the Eastern United States; the similarity between the Hamas charter and Nazi ideology.

1. Beginning with discussion of a speech made by William Pierce 1998, the program sets forth the National Alliance leader’s eerie foreshadowing of the events of 9/11. (Pierce is the author of The Turner Diaries and Serpent’s Walk.) Pierce spoke of Osama bin Laden attacking tall buildings, such as the World Trade Center, and the coming of bio-terrorism to the U.S. “Upon perusing his speeches from 1998-99, I discovered that Pierce, who heads the so-called ‘National Alliance,’ did indeed utter some most interesting (pre-Sept. 11th–if not prophetic—remarks about Osama bin Laden and bio-terrorism. The running theme in Pierce’s commentaries is—to paraphrase his hero Hitler—that Osama Bin Laden’s warning to America is ‘I Am Coming.’ And so is bio-terrorism.” (“Neo-Nazis and 9/11” by Jack McCarthy; Counterpunch; 10/29/2001.)

2. “In one chilling commentary Pierce, (after noting that Bin Laden and the rest of the lost generation of angry Moslem youth [had] had it with their parents’ compromises and were hell bent on revenge against infidel America) issued this stark, prophetic warning in a 1998 radio address titled, ‘Stay Out of Tall Buildings.’ ‘New Yorkers who work in tall office buildings anything close to the size of the World Trade Center might consider wearing hard hats . . .’ Pierce warned. . . . [Emphasis added.]” (Idem.)

3. The Counterpunch article also discusses Larry Wayne Harris—the Aryan Nations follower implicated in the possession of bubonic plague and anthrax. “ . . . Also recall that one of Pierce’s followers, the notorious Nevada-based microbiologist [Larry] Wayne Harris, has been arrested twice over the last decade, once for possession of bubonic plague materials and the other for possessing and alleging [sic] planning to use anthrax.” (Idem.)

4. Next the broadcast highlights the similarity between the events of 9/11 and the concluding episode of The Turner Diaries—the blueprint document for the actions of Timothy McVeigh and company, as well as the Nazi terror group The Order. That Nazi tract (authored by the above-mentioned William Pierce) concludes with a low-level suicide aerial attack against the Pentagon. “I conferred privately with Major Williams of the Washington Field Command for more than an hour on the problem of attacking the Pentagon. The military’s other major command centers were either knocked out on September 8 or subsequently consolidated with the Pentagon, which the top brass apparently regard as impregnable. And it damned near is. We went over every possibility we could think of, and we came up with no really convincing plan—except, perhaps one. That is to make an air delivery of a bomb.” (The Turner Diaries; “Andrew Macdonald;” Barricade Books, Inc. [SC] 1996; Copyright 1978, 1980 William Pierce; ISBN 1-56980-086-3; p. 201.)

5. “In the massive ring of defenses around the Pentagon there is a great deal of anti-aircraft firepower, but we decided that a small plane, flying just above the ground, might be able to get through the three-mile gauntlet with one of our 60-kiloton warheads. One factor in favor of such an attempt is that we have never before used aircraft in such a way, and we might hope to catch the anti-aircraft crews off their guard.” (Idem.)

6. “Although the military is guarding all civil airfields, it just happens that we have an old crop duster stashed in a barn only a few miles from here. My immediate assignment is to prepare a detailed plan for an aerial attack on the Pentagon by next Monday. We must make a final decision at the time and then act without further delay.” (Idem.)

7. It is worth noting that The Turner Diaries features the climactic attack on the Pentagon as occurring on November 9th. That date had great significance for the Nazis. The German sailors’ rebellion that precipitated the advent of the Weimar Republic so hated by the Nazis began on 11/9. Attempting to roll back the Weimar revolution, the Nazis launched the ill-fated Beer Hall Putsch on that date, as well. Die Krystallnacht (the Night of Glass pogrom) of 1938 was launched on that date also. Interestingly, the Berlin Wall came down on November 9. A German (or other European) would write the date November 9 as—9/11! “November 9, 1993. It’s still three hours until first light, and all systems are ‘go.’ I’ll use the time to write a few pages

—my last diary entry. Then it’s a one-way trip to the Pentagon for me. The warhead is strapped into the front seat of the old Stearman and rigged to detonate either on impact or when I flip a switch in the back seat. Hopefully, I’ll be able to mange a low-level air burst directly over the center of the Pentagon. Failing that, I’ll at least try to fly as close as I can before I’m shot down.” (Ibid.; p. 202.)

8. “Thus end Earl Turner’s diaries, as unpretentiously as they began. His final mission was successful, of course, as we all are reminded each year on November 9—our traditional Day of the Martyrs.” (Ibid.; p. 205.)

9. Next, the broadcast recaps information concerning the alleged presence of Oklahoma City bomber Terry Nichols at a bomb-making and logistics planning seminar in the Philippines. Also present at this seminar were Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the first World Trade Center attack and Abdul Murad, another of the conspirators in that attack. The account comes from Edwin Angeles, the co-founder of Abu Sayaf, the Al Qaeda affiliate in the Philippines. Angeles had been subpoenaed as a defense witness by Timothy McVeigh’s counsel in the Oklahoma City bombing case. (McVeigh, Nichols and company were inspired by Pierce’s Turner Diaries. According to Carol Howe—an ATF informant who passed a polygraph examination—McVeigh’s participation in the Oklahoma City bombing was as a protégé of Andreas Strassmeier, a former German Army intelligence officer, son of Gunther Strassmeier—the son of Helmut Kohl’s chief of staff and the architect of German reunification. Gunther, in turn, was the son of one of the early members of the German Nazi party under Adolph Hitler. Note that, in the passages that follow, another of the topics allegedly discussed by the conspirators is Operation Bojinka—said to be the operational template for the 9/11 attacks. “(NOTE: Basilan Provincial Information Officer Christopher Puno was present in the ward at Basilan Community Hospital when I [Sicat] interviewed Elmina Abdul, less than two weeks prior to her death.) Elmina Abdul, widow of one of the Abu Sayyaf co-founders, Edwin Angeles, died in the pre-dawn hours of Saturday, march 30. Ten days before she died, she talked with this writer in confidence while lying on her deathbed at Basilan community Hospital. I was the last, if not the only reporter, to ever talk with her.” (“Deathbed Confession: Abu Part of Oklahoma Blast’ by Dorian Zumel Sicat; Manila Times; 4/2/2002.)

10. “ . . . Among the most interesting revelations that Angeles shared with Elmina was about a meeting between himself, Ramsey [sic] Yousef, Abdul Murad (both of whom are now serving multiple prison terms for terrorist activities, including the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993), Abdurajak Abubakar Jannalani, unidentified members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), and two men who Angeles only identified as Iraqis. The meeting, according to Elmina, was held in a warehouse near a Dole (Phil.) plant in South Cotabato, between General Santos City and Davao del Sur. There were two other men at that meeting: a man whom Angeles identified as Nichols and as ‘code name farmer,’ and another American who he did not identify by name. (It is important to note that most Filipinos commonly describe Caucasians in the country as Americans.) The meeting, according to Elmina took place in 1994. She could not remember the exact date.” (Idem.)

11. “In that meeting, according to Elmina, Angeles told her that the major topic of the discussion was the bombing of specified targets and how to build bombs. Angeles told Elmina that Nichols was later sent to a place that he (Angeles) didn’t name for more detailed instruction on how Nichols and his other ‘American’ friend could build a bomb to destroy a building in the United States. She did not specify—she could not remember—which building that was to be.” (Idem.)

12. “Elmina also told me that before he was gunned down, Edwin showed her documents that proved that he actually was a deep-cover agent for the Department of National Defense. He said that those documents were presented in court in his defense and that was the reason that he was acquitted of the charges against him. That is a matter of record. But since I have never seen the documents, I will not name the ‘high ranking’ Defense officials whose signatures were said to appear on those documents.” (Idem.)

13. “Angeles also told Elmina about Project Bojenko, an [allegedly] Iraqi-financed operation of terror that targeted several buildings in the U.S., the bombing of several US airliners, bombing US embassies overseas, and hitting other US interests. Among the buildings in the US, according to Elmina, were another attack on the World Trade Center; the Federal Buildings in San Francisco, and in ‘a place he called Uklahuma (Oklahoma). . . .’” (Idem.)

14. “ . . . Was there an international conspiracy of terror forged in a meeting in an abandoned warehouse in 1994 that included Angeles and Nichols, who he referred to as ‘the Farmer?’ Did that conspiracy include members of Al-Qaeda and the Iraqi government (or at least Iraqis)? Does the ASG actually receive financial and material assistance from Al-Qaeda and [or] Iraq in order to carry on its campaign of terror? Elmina did not give precise, clear answers to those questions. She was relating what Angeles had told her not long before he died.” (Idem.)

15. “There is one thing clear: Edwin Angeles did meet with Nichols and another ‘American’ along with some state-sponsored international terrorists. Elmina knew that she was dying. She knew that all our efforts to help her recover would not be enough to save her. She told what she knew to be the truth, as her husband told it to her.” (Idem.)

16. Reviewing another piece of information presented in FTR#’s 386 and 419, the program details information about Dr. Larry Ford, a formidable specialist in biological warfare, employee of the CIA, and participant in Project Coast (the South African biological warfare program during the Apartheid era). Like McVeigh and Nichols, Ford was inspired by 5. Note that Ford had operated in Henderson, Nevada, one of the places that Larry Wayne Harris of the Aryan Nations frequented. “ . . . What the searchers did not find was anthrax, and the fear of what remained unfound, along with dozens of other questions, set off investigations that ranged from Beverly Hills to South Africa and back to the Nevada desert . . . .” (“California doctor’s Suicide Leaves many Troubling Mysteries Unsolved” by Jo Thomas; New York Times; 11/3/2002.)

17. “ . . . After his [Ford’s] death, Detective Ray said, the authorities learned that Dr. Ford had been a consultant to Project Coast, which has been accused of creating weapons for use against enemies of apartheid. They also discovered that he had held extreme racist views and had once told a girl friend that to understand him, she should ‘The Turner Diaries,’ the anti-Semitic and white supremacist novel, popular among far-right groups, that prosecutors say inspired the Oklahoma City bombing . . . .” (Idem.)

18. It should be noted that Ford’s tracks led to Nevada, where he apparently had been in contact with right-wing extremist groups. (Henderson, Nevada, was also where Larry Ford, an Aryan Nations activist, had been apprehended trying to transport weapons-grade anthrax. See FT

R#’s 89, 419.) “Perhaps the deepest fear in the entire affair was that Dr. Ford had been working with anthrax. That trail, too, has run cold. After Dr. Ford’s suicide, the police got tips that he had buried anthrax in a gold mine. They searched fruitlessly in California. Four months later, documents in a Nevada trash dump showed that Dr. Ford had been in touch with people involved in anti-tax and antigovernment groups. Some of them had tried to use bacteria to extract gold from dirt.” (Idem.)

19. “In December 2000, investigators searched a derelict gold milling site outside Henderson, Nev. They found a separator funnel, a white liquid and Dr. Ford’s business card. A federal agent said they also found directions for making chemical and biological weapons, including anthrax. But that was all. The site’s proprietor had recently died of unrelated causes.” (Idem.)

20. A 2002 article focuses on the Oklahoma City bombing and a possible link between that attack and some of the hijackers implicated in the 9/11 attacks. A motel located at some distance from Norman, Oklahoma (where some of the alleged hijackers apparently took flight training) may provide documentation of connections between Atta and accused 20th hijacker Zaccarias Moussaoui. Atta allegedly tried to book rooms at this motel with Moussaoui and another of the suspected hijackers. This is significant for several reasons. For one thing, the motel was farther away than other, reasonably-priced motels. Atta, for whatever reason, wanted this motel. As stated above, the following account may establish a hard link between Atta and Moussaoui. This same motel was apparently frequented by Mujahid Menepta, an associate of Mousssaoui, who visited the motel in the time before the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. This same motel was also reported to have been host to Tim McVeigh and alleged Middle Eastern and/or Iraqi nationals, with whom he may have been conspiring. It is also worth noting that legal authorities in this country do not appear to be overly eager to pursue these leads, perhaps out of a desire to avoid having to reopen the investigation into the Oklahoma City bombing. Atta and associates were also reportedly interested in pursuing crop dusting aircraft—the type of plane used in the attack on the Pentagon in The Turner Diaries. “What happened at the nondescript roadside motel outside Oklahoma City was just a fleeting encounter during the twisted cross-country odyssey of the terrorists who would carry out the September 11 attacks. Mohammed Atta, alleged leader of the plot, and two companions wanted to rent a room, but couldn’t get the deal they wanted, so they left.” (“The Terrorist Motel” by Jim Crogan; L.A. Weekly; 7/26/–8/1/2002.)

21. “It was an incident of no particular importance, except for one thing. The owner of the motel remembers Atta being in the company of Zacaraias Moussaoui, the so-called “20th hijacker,’ who was arrested prior to “September 11 and now faces conspiracy charges in connection with the terror assaults.’” (Ibid,; p. 1.)

22. “If this recollection is correct, the entire incident, and its absence from the public record, raises new questions about the FBI investigation of Moussaoui and even the 1995 destruction of the Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Already the FBI has endured a withering political and media critique for failing to aggressively investigate Moussaoui and his contacts during his four weeks in custody prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Some FBI officials have responded by characterizing Moussaoui as only a minor player. But the report from the motel owner, if proven, could change that. And it also could force the FBI to reopen its investigation of Middle Eastern connections to the 1995 Oklahoma City blast, because convicted bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols reportedly stayed at the same motel, interacting with a group of Iraqis during the weeks before the bombing.” (Ibid.; p.1)

23. “At press time, the erratic Moussaoui, who is representing himself, was attempting to plead guilty and bring his trial to a close. The 34-year-old French citizen of Moroccan descent had previously filed some 94 hand-scrawled, rambling motions attacking the government’s case and its right to prosecute him.” (Idem.)

24. “But that circus obscures a conundrum of a different sort. The government’s case, outlined in its new six-count conspiracy indictment, is largely circumstantial, lacking any definitive link between Moussaoui and the 19 hijackers identified by federal authorities. All of which makes the apparent shelving of the Moussaoui-Atta sighting all the stranger. In fact, even though multiple sources contend that the FBI interviewed the motel owner, there’s no indication that prosecutors were told. It’s possible that the FBI found the motel owner’s identifications wrong or his story unreliable. But it’s still odd that, in interviews with the Weekly, Justice Department prosecutors seemed to know nothing about the motel encounter, especially because agents reportedly told the motel owner they would pass the information on to Moussaoui’s defense time.” (Ibid.; pp. 1-2.)

25. “The motel co-owner, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the incident occurred around August 1, 2001, just six weeks before 9/11. ‘They came in around 10 or 11a.m. and started talking to my desk clerk,’ he said. Even though he was working about 10 feet away from the trio, the owner didn’t really pay any attention at first. ‘They were asking my clerk, who no longer works here, about a weekly rate for our rooms.’(The former clerk could not be reached for comment.)” (Ibid.; p. 2.)

26. “The motel, explained the owner, sets aside some rooms with small kitchenettes to rent on a weekly basis. ‘But they were all taken.’ He said the clerk explained the situation, but the visitors were persistent. ‘Finally, my clerk asked me to talk to them.’” (Idem.)

27. “The motel owner said that Moussaoui and a man who appeared to be Marwan al-Shehhi—who helped crash a jetliner into the south tower of the World trade Center—were friendly and said a few things, but Atta was clearly the leader. ‘He did most of the talking and seemed very serious,’ said the owner, adding, ‘I was standing face to face, about two feet away from Atta, and talked to the three of them for about 10 minutes. Atta asked if he could rent one of the other rooms at a weekly rate, and I told him no.” (Idem.)

28. “ ‘I asked him what they were doing here in the area. And Atta told me they were going to flight school. I thought he meant [Federal Aviation Administration] training in Oklahoma City. But Atta told me no, they were taking flight training in Norman.” (Idem.)

29. “ ‘I said I didn’t understand why they wanted to rent one of my rooms, since we were about 28 miles from Norman and there are a lot of reasonably priced motels a lot closer. But he said they had heard good things about my place and wanted to stay there. I told them I was sorry, but we couldn’t accommodate them. Atta finally said okay. Then they all thanked me for my time and left.’” (Idem.)

30. “After the attacks, said the motel owner, he recognized his visitors in photos from television reports. ‘I was really stunned,’ he said. Then he decided to call the FBI hot line. The motel owner said he didn’t hear right back from the FBI. In the interim, he also spoke to a former law-enforcement officer who was investigating reported sightings of Mujahid Abdulquaadir Menepta at the same motel during the mid-1990’s. Menepta, reportedly a friend of Moussaoui’s, was arrested 30 years ago in Colorado for aggravated robbery and served more than three years in prison.”(Idem.)

31. “After September 11, Menepta publicly defended Moussaoui, calling him a ‘scapegoat.’ The FBI arrested him as a material witness and subsequently charged Menepta with a federal gun violation. He pleaded guilty and in April 2002 was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison. He was never charged with any terrorism-related crime. But during the preliminary hearing on the gun charge, Alcohol, Tobacco and firearms Agent Jeffrey Whitney testified that a confidential source placed Menepta at a meeting of a radical Islamic group in St. Louis where he allegedly threatened to shoot any police officer who entered the mosque. Menepta’s attorney challenged the credibility of this report in court.” (Ibid.; pp. 2-3.)

32. “A former desk clerk at the motel—a different clerk from the one who purportedly dealt with Atta and Moussaoui—told the Weekly that he remembered Menepta because in 1994 and 1995—prior to the Oklahoma City attack—Menepta frequently visited the motel office. There, he bought coffee and talked for hours to this clerk.” (Ibid.; p. 3.)

33. “The clerk and his wife, who both formerly worked at the motel, said they picked Menepta’s picture out of a photo lineup prepared by a law-enforcement officer who had interviewed the motel owner. This officer, who also spoke to the Weekly on condition of anonymity, said that after the motel owner told him about the Moussaoui sighting, he contacted a member of Oklahoma’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, which includes the FBI. The FBI finally acted on the tip. The motel owner said that on December 19, 2001, he went to FBI offices in Oklahoma City for a formal interview, where he was debriefed by an FBI agent and by Oklahoma City Police Sergeant Jerry Flowers. ‘We talked for several hours, and I told them everything I knew.’ The motel owner said he would have taken a polygraph exam but was not asked to do so. The Weekly’s law-enforcement source corroborates the December 19 interview.”(Idem.)

34. “The motel owner never heard from prosecutors in Moussaoui’s case but got one more call from the FBI several weeks later. ‘The agent told me they had passed on a copy of my statement to Moussaoui’s defense team, and I might be getting a call from them. But I was under no obligation to talk to them. However, I don’t know if that was the truth. Since then, I have never heard from anyone connected to Moussaoui’s case.’”(Idem.)

35. The account takes up the issue of some allegedly Middle-Eastern associates of McVeigh. (One should take the tentative description of the men as “Iraqis” with a grain of salt.) This does not mean that the Iraqi government was implicated, necessarily. It may mean that the directors of the conspiracy sought to provoke hostility between the U.S. and Iraq and the other Muslim peoples of what the Nazis called “The Earth Island.” Recall that Edwin Angeles also saw Yousef, Murad and Nichols in the company of “Iraqis” and that Larry Wayne Harris also warned of Iraqi bio-terrorists. These accounts should be viewed in the same light. (Note that counterterrorism expert Rita Katz in her book Terrorist Hunter observed that Iraqi nationals had been employed by the Al Taqwa/SAAR milieu to make it appear that Iraq was behind their activities.) “One reason for the FBI’s apparent lack of interest might be this motel’s alleged connection to Timothy McVeigh and a group of Iraqis who worked in Oklahoma City. According to the motel owner and other witnesses and investigators interviewed by the Weekly, McVeigh and several of these Iraqis were motel guests in the months preceding the 1995 bombing. Witnesses also claimed they saw several of the Iraqis moving barrels of material around on the bed of a truck. The motel owner said the material smelled of diesel fuel and he had to clean up a spill. Diesel fuel was a key component of the truck bomb that blew up the Federal Building.” (Idem.)

36. “The motel owner said he and his staff reported this information to the FBI in 1995. ‘We did have an ATF agent come out and collect the originals of the room registrations for that period, but we never heard back from them. And I never could get the registrations returned.’ He added that his previous experience with the FBI made him reluctant to contact them about Moussaoui. ‘But I decided it was my duty to tell them what had happened. So I did.’” (Idem.)

37. “Former Oklahoma City TV reporter Jayna Davis also interviewed motel staff and former guests. In the process, she collected signed affidavits about their contacts with McVeigh and the Iraqis. She tried twice to give the Bureau this information, but the FBI refused to accept her materials. (The Weekly first reported on her investigation in an article published in September 2001.)” (Idem.)

38. “The Weekly’s law-enforcement source said he has reviewed Davis’ material and considers it credible. ‘Last December I personally took the documents to the Joint Terrorism Task Force,’ he said. ‘I told them they should do their own investigation.’ The response was not encouraging. He said he was later informed that the Bureau brought in an analyst, ‘but I was told it would probably go nowhere. They were afraid the whole Oklahoma City bombing can of worms would be opened up and the FBI would have to explain why they didn’t investigate this material before.’” (Ibid.; pp. 4-5.)

39. “The Weekly contacted numerous local and federal investigators and agencies, including the Oklahoma task force, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the FBI and the Justice Department. All declined to comment. Prosecutors on the Moussaoui case also declined official comment, but their reactions suggested they knew nothing of the motel encounter.” (Ibid.; p. 5.)

40. “After being told about the motel owner’s interview and allegations, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Spencer responded with a one-word question about the sighting: ‘When?’ Spencer then declined further comment. Another Moussaoui prosecutor, David Novak, also declined comment. But Novak wanted to know the name of the motel owner.” (Idem.)

41. “Other substantial connections already tie the Sooner State to Moussaoui and, separately, several 9/11 hijackers.” (Idem.)

42. “According to the Moussaoui indictment, on September 29, 2000, Moussaoui made e-mail contact with Airman Flight School in Norman. Then, on February 23, 2001, he flew from London to Chicago and then to Oklahoma City. What he did in the next few days is unknown or at least not accounted for in the indictment. But on February 26, Moussaoui opened a bank account in Norman, depositing $32,000. From February 26 to May 29, he attended flight school in Norman. Then he suddenly quit the school. Between July 29 and August 4, Moussaoui made calls from public pay phones in Norman to Germany. On August 1 and 3, Ramzi Bin al-Shibh wired Moussaoui a total of about $14,000 from two train stops in Germany to somewhere in Oklahoma. This wire transfer does imply a connection to terrorist plotters because al-Shibh, an alleged al Qaeda member, wired money to other hijackers. On August 3, Moussaoui purchased two knives in Oklahoma City. And on August 10 or 11, an acquaintance drove Moussaoui from Oklahoma to Minnesota for enrollment in a new flight school. Authorities arrested Moussaoui in Minnesota on August 17 on an immigration violation. As has been widely reported, Moussaoui attracted attention because he said he was interested in flying a plane but not learning how to take off or land. He was in federal custody when the 9/11 attacks occurred.” (Idem.)

43. “As for the terrorists who took part in 9/11, Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi visited the Airman Flight School in Norman in July 2000, according to the Moussaoui indictment. (The mo

tel owner identifies al-Shehhi as the third person with Atta and Moussaoui when they allegedly inquired about a room.) And on April 1, 2001, Nawaf al-Hazmi, who helped hijack American Airlines Flight 77, which crashed into the Pentagon, was stopped for speeding in Oklahoma and given two tickets. The Oklahoma State trooper found no outstanding warrants and turned al-Nazmi loose. The media has since reported that the CIA had been tracking al-Hazmi, but never told the immigration service or the FBI that he was a suspected terrorist during his 21-month U.S. stay. Authorities have never publicly accounted for Atta and al-Shehhi’s whereabouts during the time of the alleged motel encounter.” (Idem.)

44. “The Moussaoui indictment lays out a tantalizing possible association between Atta and Moussaoui, but never puts the two in the same place at the same time. The link could exist, however, along a dusty Oklahoma roadside, off Interstate 40, at a small motel that is indistinguishable from hundreds of others, except for its possible connection to terrorists.” (Idem.)

45. Returning to the subject of The Turner Diaries, the program excerpts a section of the book, dealing with the sabotage of a major nuclear power plant. In connection with this excerpt, consider the following: the economic damage done to the country and the resultant strain placed on the population and the panic generated in the public as a result of the sabotaging of the plant. The Turner Diaries describes a campaign of terror launched on the general population that corresponds closely to the principles of “total war” enunciated and formalized by Von Clausewitz. Nuclear terrorism is a possibility that has been very much on the minds of both the Al Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood milieu and the American authorities charged with protecting the country. One of the possibilities that should be seriously considered is that domestic fascist and white supremacist elements might operate in tandem or in parallel with Islamofascist operatives in an attack on the U.S. Notice also that the Order undertakes the gambit of using what is, in effect, a “dirty bomb” in order to realize the goal of sabotaging the plant. “ . . . And if I can figure a way to take out the Evanston Project, that’ll be a capital loss of nearly $10 billion in one stroke-not to mention the economic damage which will result from the loss of electrical power to industrial plants throughout the Great Lakes region. . . .” (The Turner Diaries; “Andrew Macdonald;” Copyright 1978, 1980 William Pierce; accessed at: www.geocities.com/barindog7/Turner3.htm; p. 9 of the online segment [Chapter XIV].)

46. “ . . . We want to hit the new nuclear power complex at Evanston during the next six weeks, while they’re still guiding tourists through it. After the first of June, when it will be closed to the public permanently, knocking it out will become much more difficult. The Evanston Power Project is an enormous thing: four huge nuclear reactors surrounded by the biggest turbines and generators in the world. And the whole thing sits on concrete pilings a mile out in Lake Michigan, which supplies the cooling water for the reactors’ heat exchangers. The Project generates 18,000 megawatts of electrical power-almost 20 billion watts! Incredible!” (Ibid.; p. 11.)

47. “The power is fed into the power grid which supplies the entire Great Lakes region. Before the Evanston Project went into operation two months ago, the whole Midwest was suffering from a severe power shortage—much worse than we have here, which is bad enough. In some areas factories were restricted to operating only two days a week, and there were so many unexpected blackouts in addition that the region was on the verge of a real economic crisis.” (Idem.)

48. “If we can take out the new power plant, things will be even worse than they were before. In order to keep the lights on in Chicago and Milwaukee, the authorities will have to steal power from as far away as Detroit and Minneapolis, where there is none to spare. All of that part of the country will be hit hard. And it took 10 years to design and build the Evanston Project, so they won’t be able to remedy the situation very soon. . . .” (Idem.)

49. “ . . . In essence, my idea is this: Since there’s no way a single tourist can sneak in enough explosive material to wreck the place—nor any way he can position the small amount he could sneak-in so it would be really effective, like punching a hole in one of the reactor pressure vessels, we may as well forget about explosives. Instead, we’ll try to contaminate the plant with radioactive material, so that it can’t be used.” (Idem.)

50. “What makes this idea attractive is that we have a source, inside the Organization, for certain radioactive materials. He’s a chemistry professor at a university in Florida, and he uses the materials in his research. We can easily pack enough of a really hot and nasty radionuclide—something with a half-life of a year or so—into a cane or a crutch, together with a small explosive charge for dispersing it, to make the entire Evanston Power project uninhabitable. The plant won’t be damaged physically, but they’ll have to shut it down. Decontamination will be such an enormous task that the plant may very well stay closed permanently. . . .” (Ibid.; p. 12.)

51. “The whole plan is pretty scary, but it has one big advantage: the psychological impact on the public. People are almost superstitious in their fear of nuclear radiation. The anti-nuclear lobby will have a field day with it. It will catch people’s imagination to a far greater extent than any ordinary bombing or mortar attack. It will horrify many people—and it will knock more of them off the fence.” (Idem.)

52. An interesting footnote to recent terrorist incidents concerns a claim of responsibility by an alleged Al Qaeda affiliate for the power blackouts in the U.S. and Britain last summer. Were Islamist elements acting out some of the particulars of The Turner Diaries, as apparently happened on 9/11? Were neo-Nazi elements undertaking these actions as a realization of The Turner Diaries? Were neo-Nazi/white supremacist elements executing the blackouts and misrepresenting themselves as Islamists in order to maximize civil and international conflict between Muslims and non-Muslims? In the latter context, one should consider that the goal of The Order in The Turner Diaries is the fomenting of civil chaos and resultant government repression, in order to create a revolutionary reaction against, and overthrow of, “the System.” (This concept will be examined at greater length in future programs.) “An obscure terrorist group linked to al Qaeda claimed responsibility on Sunday for the twin truck bombings at two synagogues that killed 23 people and wounded more than 300 here on Saturday, and Turkish officials said they had evidence that suicide drivers had carried out the blasts. . . . The group [Abu Hafs al-Masri Brigades] had made the claim by e-mail. The group has been identified with al Qaeda in the past. The group has made previous claims that turned out to be unsubstantiated—it took responsibility for the Aug. 5 bombing of the Marriott Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, and even the blackouts last summer in the United States and Britain. [Italics are Mr. Emory’s].” (“Al Qaeda Allies Say they Set Off Blasts.” By Craig S. Smith [New York Times]; San Francisco Chronicle; 11/17/2003; p. A3.)

53. The prospect of renewed action by domestic fascist terrorists is not one to be too readily dismissed. “One evening two winters ago, a man in Staten Island, N.Y., absent-mindedly flipped through his mail. Inside one envelope was a stack of fake documents, including United N

ations and Defense Department identification cards, and a note: ‘We would hate to have this fall into the wrong hands.’ It had. The package, intended for a member of a self-styled militia in New Jersey, had been delivered to the wrong address.” (“Domestic Terrorism Fight Comes Under Fire” by Scott Gold; Los Angeles Times; 1/7/2004; p. A1.)

54. “From that lucky break, federal officials believe they may have uncovered one of the most audacious domestic terrorism plots since the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 people. Starting with a single piece of mail, investigators discovered an enormous cache of weapons in Noonday, in East Texas, including the makings of a sophisticated sodium cyanide bomb capable of killing thousands of people.” (Idem.)

55. “Three people—William Krar, a small-time arms dealer with connections to white supremacists; Krar’s common-law wife, Judith L. Bruey; and Edward S. Feltus, the man who was supposed to have received the forged documents—pleaded guilty in the case in November. They are being held in a Tyler, Texas, detention facility and are scheduled to appear before a federal judge for sentencing next month.” (Ibid.; pp. A1-A9.)

56. “But what is typically the end of a criminal case may be only the beginning in this one. Some government investigators believe other conspirators may be on the loose. And they readily acknowledge that they have no idea what the stash of weapons was for—though they have tantalizing and alarming clues of a ‘covert operation or plan,’ according to an FBI affidavit. . . .” (Ibid.; p. A9.)

57. “ . . . Feltus, 56, of New Jersey, has pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting the transportation of false identification documents and faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison, Featherston said. According to the FBI affidavit, Feltus has told investigators that he is a member of a group called the New Jersey Militia, which, according to its website, believes the federal government has grown too powerful and says it is ‘ready, as a last resort, to come to our nation’s defense against all enemies, foreign or domestic. . . .’” (Idem.)

58. The dimensions of the weapons cache that authorities found in Texas (in a storage facility rented by Bruey) is stunning. “ . . . Investigators found nearly 500,000 rounds of ammunition, 65 pipe bombs and briefcases that could be detonated by remote control. Most distressing they said, was the discovery of 800 grams of almost pure sodium cyanide—material that can only be acquired legally for specific agricultural or military projects.” (Idem.)

59. “The sodium cyanide was found inside an ammunition canister, next to hydrochloric, nitric and acetic acids and formulas for making bombs. If acid were mixed with the sodium cyanide, an analysis showed it would create a bomb powerful enough to kill everyone inside a 30,000-square-foot facility, investigators said. Also discovered were anti-Semitic, anti-black and antigovernment books and pamphlets, according to the FBI’s affidavit. . . .” (Idem.)

60. After discussing apparent code phrases and rendezvous points to be utilized in concert with other, like-minded elements, the article goes on to comment: “The clues, wrote FBI Special Agent, Bart B. LaRocca in the affidavit, suggested an ‘involved criminal scheme which could potentially include plans for future civil unrest and/or violent civil disorder against the United States government.’” (Idem.)

61. “ . . . Officials say the case was at one point included in President Bush’s daily security briefings, but it remains virtually unknown outside East Texas—even though, critics point out, it represents an instance in which federal authorities actually discovered a weapon of mass destruction. . . .” (Idem.)

62. Another consideration to be weighed against the background of the present discussion is the porous security surrounding nuclear munitions in the former Soviet Union (among other countries.) “In the ethnic conflicts that surrounded the collapse of the Soviet Union, fighters in several countries seized upon an unlikely new weapon: a small, thin rocket known as the Alazan. Originally built for weather experiments, the Alazan was transformed into a terror weapon, packed with explosives and lobbed into cities. Military records show that at least 38 Alazan warheads were modified to carry radioactive material, effectively creating the world’s first surface-to-surface dirty bomb. The warheads are not known to have been used. But now, according to experts and officials, they have disappeared. . . .” (“Dirty Bomb Rockets Vanish” by Joby Warrick; The Washington Post; 12/7/2002; P. A1.)

63. The broadcast concludes with a passage that illustrates the ideological correspondence between neo-Nazi political philosophy and that of Islamists and Islamofascists: “The Hamas charter sees Jews as the ultimate enemy: they ‘have used their wealth to gain control of the world media, news agencies, the press, broadcasting stations, etc. . . .They were behind the French revolution and the Communist revolution. . . . They instigated World War I. . . . They caused World War II. . . . It was they who gave the instructions to establish the United Nations and the Security Council to replace the League of Nations, in order to rule over the world through them.’” (Militant Islam Reaches America; by Daniel Pipes; W.W. Norton & Co. [SC]; Copyright 2002, 2003 by Daniel Pipes; ISBN 0-393-32531-8.)

    Feds: Men got terror ideas from underground novel

    By GREG BLUESTEIN – Associated Press | AP – 54 mins ago

    GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) — In the violent underground novel “Absolved,” right-wing militia members upset about gun control make war against the U.S. government. This week, federal prosecutors accused four elderly Georgia men of plotting to use the book as a script for a real-life wave of terror and assassination involving explosives and the highly lethal poison ricin.

    The four suspected militia members allegedly boasted of a “bucket list” of government officials who needed to be “taken out”; talked about scattering ricin from a plane or a car speeding down a highway past major U.S. cities; and scouted IRS and ATF offices, with one man saying, “We’d have to blow the whole building like Timothy McVeigh.
    ….

    Prosecutors said that Thomas was the ringleader and that he talked of carrying out the sort of actions described in “Absolved,” an online novel written by former Alabama militia leader Mike Vanderboegh. In the book, the militia members build rifle grenades and drop explosives from crop dusters.

    In the book’s introduction, Vanderboegh calls it a “cautionary tale for the out-of-control gun cops of the ATF.”

    For that warning to be credible, I must also present what amounts to a combination field manual, technical manual and call to arms for my beloved gunnies of the armed citizenry,” he writes. “They need to know how powerful they could truly be if they were pushed into a corner.”

    In an interview, Vanderboegh said he didn’t know the four men and bears no responsibility for the alleged plot.

    “I’m glad that the FBI has apparently short-circuited some weak-minded individuals from misinterpreting my novel,” he said.

    Last year, Vanderboegh was denounced for calling on citizens to throw bricks through the windows of local Democratic headquarters across the country to protest President Barack Obama’s health care plan. Several such incidents occurred. Vanderboegh has also appeared as a commentator on Fox News Channel.

    Another AK Militia Activist And Sovereign Citizen Linked To Schaeffer Cox Arrested
    share
    Jillian Rayfield November 3, 2011, 6:02 AM

    A member of the Alaska militia movement and a sovereign citizen connected with Schaeffer Cox was arrested on a weapons charge while trying to cross into Canada.

    Mary Ann Morgan, a resident of Kenai, Alaska, was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, according to the criminal complaint. She had been convicted in 2001 of interfering with a child custody agreement and finished serving probation in 2003, but under Alaska law is still forbidden from ever possessing a firearm.

    Morgan’s ties to the Alaska militia movement run pretty deep. For one thing, she has reportedly been a frequent poster on the Google forum for the Alaska Citizens Militia. The group was started by Norm Olson, who the Southern Poverty Law Center reports also started the Michigan Militia, though he was kicked out after touting this theory about the Oklahoma City bombing: “The Japanese government had bombed the federal building there as a return favor for the sarin gas subway attack that he said the U.S. government carried out in Tokyo.”

    In her postings, Morgan has referred to President Obama as “the illegal in the White House,” and praised Schaeffer Cox as “a man with much Godly Wisdom.”

    Cox, the leader of the Alaska Peacemakers Militia and a sovereign citizen in his own right, was arrested in March for allegedly stockpiling weapons in a plot to kill several state officials. Prior to his arrest, Cox put himself on trial in a common-law court, after he received a misdemeanor weapons charge for failing to notify a police officer that he was carrying a concealed weapon. Cox skipped out on his February court date because he didn’t believe the court had the authority to arrest him, and was eventually arrested as part of the larger FBI investigation into the plot.

    ….

    Recall that Norm Olson was McVeigh’s mentor too: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/34070149/ns/us_news-life/print/1/displaymode/1098/

  4. Yikes. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that investigators apparently have reasons to believe that the missing Malaysian Airlines flight, flight MH370, remained in the air for up to four hours after its last confirmed location and could have made it all the way to Pakistan:

    Slate
    The Mystery of Flight MH370, Already Unprecedented, Just Got Even Bigger

    By Josh Voorhees
    March 13 2014 10:25 AM

    The at-times chaotic and nearly always confusing search for flight MH370 is now almost a week old, and authorities seem no closer to determining what happened to the jetliner that vanished from civilian air traffic radar roughly an hour after it left Kuala Lumpur. In the meantime, the already unprecedented aviation mystery seems to grow by the day with new possible theories emerging as fast if not faster than existing ones can be dismissed.

    Yesterday, hopes for finding the missing Boeing 777 were briefly stirred by reports from China that its satellites had spotted a “suspected crash area at sea” near the plane’s last known position. But by this morning (our time), those had been largely extinguished after a search of the area turned up empty. “There is nothing,” Malaysian civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman told reporters Thursday. “We went there, there is nothing.”

    Meanwhile, a report in the Wall Street Journal raised the possibility that the missing plane had remained in the air for roughly four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, a theory that if true would suggest the aircraft could have traveled another 2,200 nautical miles based on the jet’s cruising speed. That means the jetliner could have reached points as far away as the Indian Ocean, the border of Pakistan, or even the Arabian Sea, according to the paper.

    The report, which cited “two people familiar with the details” of the investigation, was said to be based on data transmitted by the plane’s engines back to their manufacturer, Rolls-Royce. Such transmissions happen periodically during a flight so the company can monitor the engine’s health. As unimaginable as the idea of a passenger plane traveling 2,000-odd miles unnoticed might be, the questions such a detour would raise would be even more pressing (emphasis on the rather terrifying anonymous quote mine):

    The investigation remains fluid, and it isn’t clear whether investigators have evidence indicating possible terrorism or sabotage. So far, U.S. national security officials have said that nothing specifically points toward terrorism, though they haven’t ruled it out.

    But the huge uncertainty about where the plane was headed, and why it apparently continued flying so long without working transponders, has raised theories among investigators that the aircraft may have been commandeered for a reason that appears unclear to U.S. authorities. Some of those theories have been laid out to national security officials and senior personnel from various U.S. agencies, according to one person familiar with the matter. At one briefing, according to this person, officials were told investigators are actively pursuing the notion that the plane was diverted “with the intention of using it later for another purpose.”

    Rolls-Royce, however, isn’t talking on the record about what data it may or may not have received and Malaysian officials were quick to dismiss the WSJ report as inaccurate at a press conference today. Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, the chief executive of Malaysia Airlines, told reporters that the last technical data received from the plane was less than 30 minutes after takeoff. “That was the last transmission,” he said. “It did not run beyond that.”

  5. It’s increasingly looking like sabotage…

    Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 radar evidence suggests ‘sabotage’
    ‘We are looking at sabotage, with hijack still on the cards,’ senior Malaysian police official says

    Thomson Reuters Posted: Mar 14, 2014 2:14 AM ET Last Updated: Mar 14, 2014 10:59 AM ET

    An investigation into the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner is focusing more on a suspicion of foul play, as evidence suggests it was diverted hundreds of kilometres off course, sources familiar with the Malaysian probe said.

    In a far more detailed description of military radar plotting than has been publicly revealed, two sources told Reuters an unidentified aircraft that investigators suspect was missing Flight MH370 appeared to be following a commonly used navigational route when it was last spotted early on Saturday, northwest of Malaysia.

    That course — headed into the Andaman Sea and towards the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean — could only have been set deliberately, either by flying the Boeing 777-200ER jet manually or by programming the auto-pilot.

    A third investigative source said inquiries were focusingmore on the theory that someone who knew how to fly a plane deliberately diverted the flight hundreds of miles off its scheduled course from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

    “What we can say is we are looking at sabotage, with hijack still on the cards,” said the source, a senior Malaysian police official.

    One of the most baffling mysteries in the history of modern aviation remains unsolved after nearly a week.

    Investigators were still looking at “four or five” possibilities, including a diversion that was intentional or under duress, or an explosion, he said. Police would search the pilot’s home if necessary and were still investigating all 239 passengers and crew on the plane, he added.

    ..

    So it’s now down to “four or five” possibilities. And odds are none of them are listed here:

    Boston Globe
    9 crazy conspiracy theories about Malaysia Airlines flight 370
    Posted by Jack Pickell March 12, 2014 12:12 PM

    By Chris Caesar, Boston.com Staff

    While investigators are stumped over the fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, the lack of evidence as to what happened hasn’t stopped wild – and I mean WILD – speculation as to the fate of the missing jet and its 239 passengers and crew members.

    It’s not unusual for mysterious or dramatic aviation accidents to catch the imaginations of the conspiratorially inclined – the Korean Air Lines Flight 007, Pan Am Flight 103, and TWA Flight 800 tragedies spurred all kinds of claims of conspiracy, and last week’s apparent tragedy in the Gulf of Thailand is no different.

    Conspiracy theorists took to social media this week to contribute their own ideas as to why Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared.

    1. Aliens are involved:

    2. The passengers are still alive:

    3. There’s a Snowden connection: Reddit user Dark_Spectre posted an unusual theory on the website’s conspiracy boards, related to 20 employees of the Texas-based Freescale Semiconductor who were reportedly on the flight:

    “So we have the American IBM Technical Storage Executive for Malaysia, a man working in mass storage aggregation for the company implicated by the Snowden papers for providing their services to assist the National Security Agency in surveilling the Chinese.. And now this bunch of US chip guys working for a global leader in embedded processing solutions (embedded smart phone tech and defense contracting) all together..on a plane..And disappeared.. Coincidence??

    Dark_Spectre goes as far as to suggest those chip experts may have been kidnapped by Chinese or American authorities:

    “Perhaps a little fast and furious dive under the radar to a flat water landing to rendezvous with a Chinese ship or sub for transport to a black-site for advanced interrogation, scuttling the plane along with the remaining passengers.(any oceanic trenches in fuel capacity distance?) What would 200 lives be to the Chinese intelligence community for the chance to find out ‘exactly’ the depth and scope of our intrusion.”

    Yeah, because that would definitely be the easiest way of doing that.

    “US intelligence got late wind that their flying brain-trust of 21 were going to be arrested/detained and interrogated upon landing in China and the US intelligence community deemed the risk too great to their Asian based espionage programs and took appropriate action to “sanitize” the plane in flight.”

    So far, there is no evidence of an explosion.

    4. Iranians kidnapped engineers:

    5. Passengers were taken to Pyongyang:

    6. The Illuminati is involved:

    7. There’s a new Bermuda triangle:

    8. The plane is in Vietnam, where it is waiting to be used as a weapon:

    9: There was some kind of miniature hydrogen bomb controlled by an iPhone app and it created a miniature black hole:

    Now, obviously we should never discount the possibility that Illuminati aliens are running around setting off miniature hydrogen bombs controlled by iPhone apps to create black holes. It would explain a lot. So could the Illuminati aliens have been interested in those 20 employees working at a US defense contractor that makes embedded processors? If so, what other apps might have been on that alien iPhone?

  6. Surprise surprise: Eric Frein, the Pennsylvanian cop killer that spent over a month hiding in the woods, killed those cops because he wanted to ignite a revolution. Why would such an act start a revolution? Who knows, but that was apparently his plan:

    ABC News
    Eric Frein ‘Mom and Dad’ Letter Brings More Terrorism Charges
    Nov 13, 2014, 5:42 PM ET
    By AARON KATERSKY

    Accused Pennsylvania cop killer Eric Frein has been charged with two additional counts of terrorism, stemming from a letter officials say he addressed to “Mom and Dad” that was found during a search of his computer.

    “I am sorry,” the letter read, in part. “You guys are great parents, I am just not a good son. I squandered so much opportunity and support and rarely tried my best at anything.”

    The letter appears to have been written in December of last year and amended in October of this year during the 48-day manhunt for the suspect, officials said.

    “Our nation is far from what it was and what it should be,” it read. “I have seen so many depressing changes made in my time that I cannot imagine what it must be like for you. There is so much wrong and on so many levels only passing through the crucible of another revolution can get us back the liberties we once had. I do not pretend to know what the revolution will look like or even if it would be successful.

    “Tension is high at the moment and the time seems right for a spark to ignite a fire in the hearts of men. What I have done has not been done before and it felt like it was worth a try.”

    Based on the letter calling for revolution, prosecutors said his alleged shooting of two state troopers was “intending to influence the policy of government.”
