NB: A new feature is being launched in the “News and Supplemental” Category. For some time, “Pterrafractyl” has been contributing very informative comments. That contributor will now be posting articles as a guest author in the “Pterrafractyl’s Nest” section.
COMMENT: In the blizzard of anti-Semitic propaganda (cloaked as “anti-Zionist” propaganda) circulating in the “Truther” milieu, the story below has been totally eclipsed.
In point of fact, the Islamist attackers were deeply associated with Nazi and fascist elements, who had motive enough to try and divert public opinion from the facts. The Bush administration also had profound involvement with the elements targeted by the Operation Green Quest raids of 3/20/2002. Those links to the SAAR network, plus the numerous intelligence failures of which the administration was guilty gave Dubya, Grover Norquist and disinformation master Karl Rove abundant motive for dragging red herrings across the investigative pathway.
Pinning blame on “Da Jooz” attacks serves the interests of all guilty parties. Indeed, Achmed Huber–a director of al-Taqwa, protege of Omar Amin (nee Johann) von Leers (Goebbels’ chief anti-Semitic propagandist) and liaison between Islamists and European and American neo-Nazis, floated disinformation blaming the attacks on the “Mossad” shortly after the attacks.
Huber also indicated that elements in the Bush administration and other elite Washington circles shared his anti-Semitic views and saw the 9/11 attacks as a vehicle for increasing anti-Israeli propaganda.
EXCERPT: The 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre’s twin towers and the Pentagon were humiliating blows to the intelligence services, which failed to foresee them, and to the defence forces of the most powerful nation in the world, which failed to deflect them.
The Telegraph has learnt that two senior experts with Mossad, the Israeli military intelligence service, were sent to Washington in August to alert the CIA and FBI to the existence of a cell of as many of 200 terrorists said to be preparing a big operation.
“They had no specific information about what was being planned but linked the plot to Osama bin Laden and told the Americans that there were strong grounds for suspecting Iraqi involvement,” said a senior Israeli security official. . . .
. . . America’s intelligence agencies are being widely blamed for their failure to predict the attacks, or anything like them, and for not discovering any of the terrorist cells before the hijackings on Tuesday. Some of those who took part had lived in the US for months, or even years.
Evidence that a clear Israeli warning was delivered to American authorities, but ignored, would be a further blow to the reputation of the CIA, which is under fire for its failure last week.
An administration official in Washington said: “If this is true then the refusal to take it seriously will mean heads will roll. It is quite credible that the CIA might not heed a Mossad warning: it has a history of being overcautious about Israeli information.” . . .
