BND Files on Postwar Gestapo and SS Agents Purged During Ernst Uhrlau’s Directorship

Chief of the Ham­burg police dur­ing a peri­od in which Ger­man intel­li­gence had mem­bers of the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, Ernst Uhrlau was appoint­ed spe­cial advis­er to the Chan­cel­lor on intel­li­gence mat­ters in 1998. He became head of the BND in 2005. Dur­ing Uhrlau’s tenure as BND direc­tor, files on BND offi­cers with SS and Gestapo back­grounds were shred­ded.


FTR #761 The Adventures of Eddie the Friendly Spook, Part 7: Why the NSA Should Be Spying on Germany and Its Chancellor

This pro­gram high­lights German/Underground Reich con­nec­tions to both the 9/11 attacks and the Okla­homa City bomb­ing. Of par­tic­u­lar sig­nif­i­cance is Ernst Uhrlau: chief of Ham­burg police at the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the 9/11 cell under sur­veil­lance, appoint­ed coor­di­na­tor of intel­li­gence for the Ger­man chan­cel­lor in 1998 and head of the BND in 2005. The son of Chan­cel­lor Kohl’s chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing and BND may well have been manip­u­lat­ing Mohamed Atta.


Memo to Merkel: Get a Grip!

It should come as no sur­prise that the NSA would tar­get Ger­many as a “hot spot” for elec­tron­ic sur­veil­lance. We call atten­tion to Ernst Uhrlau, chief of police in Ham­burg dur­ing the time Ger­man intel­li­gence had the Ham­burg cell of 9/11 hijack­ers under sur­veil­lance, lat­er spe­cial advis­er to Chan­cel­lor Hel­mut Kohl on intel­li­gence mat­ters (the son of whose chief of staff may have mas­ter­mind­ed the Okla­homa City bomb­ing), and even­tu­al­ly head of the BND!

FTR #750 Surveying the Scene with Daniel Hopsicker

This broad­cast catch­es up with some areas of research and inter­est on the part of the hero­ic inves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ist Daniel Hop­sick­er. We then revis­it­ed the cir­cum­stances of Ruki Dekkers, one of Atta’s clos­est asso­ciates. Although he was arrest­ed for drug traf­fick­ing, informed sources expressed skep­ti­cism that he would ever go to tri­al. Much of the pro­gram focused on the Boston Marathon bomb­ing of April 2013, espe­cial­ly the links between the bombers, their fam­i­ly and ele­ments asso­ci­at­ed with CIA.


“U‑2, Brut?”: Baby Face Snowden and the Destabilization of Obama

Pre­vi­ous­ly, we not­ed that Ron Paul backer Snow­den decamped to Hong Kong and leaked infor­ma­tion about U.S. hack­ing of Chi­nese com­put­ers just as Pres­i­dent Oba­ma was meet­ing with the Chi­nese prime min­is­ter Xi. Now, infor­ma­tion about NSA spy­ing on Ger­many hits the papers, just as Oba­ma is prepar­ing to meet with Ger­man Chan­cel­lor Angela Merkel, caus­ing fur­ther embar­rass­ment. This has all the ear­marks of a U‑2 style intel­li­gence desta­bi­liza­tion oper­a­tion. UPDATED ON 8/30/2013.


Huffman Aviation a Factor in Legal Struggle over Classified Documents

While the media are pre­dictably obsess­ing on the NSA/PRISM non-scan­dal, more impor­tant secre­cy issues have emerged. It devel­ops that some Sara­so­ta-based Saud­is who fled short­ly after the 9/11 attacks were indeed con­nect­ed to peo­ple impli­cat­ed in the attacks, includ­ing indi­vid­u­als who were part of Mohamed Atta’s Huff­man Avi­a­tion milieu.


German Intelligence, The National Socialist Underground and 9/11

Two inves­ti­ga­tions may well dove­tail. We’ve cov­ered the 9/11 attacks for years, begin­ning with analy­sis well before the events them­selves. We note, also, our recent posts about the intel­li­gence-linked Nation­al Social­ist Union neo-Nazi group in Ger­many. Ger­many Watch has pre­sent­ed a work­ing hypoth­e­sis that NSU’s mur­ders were cov­er­ing-up oper­a­tional ele­ments in the attacks.


Rudi Dekkers Enters a Sealed Plea: May Never Go to Trial

For years, we’ve cov­ered the hero­ic, lone­ly research done by Daniel Hop­sick­er on the 9/11-relat­ed flight schools in South­ern Flori­da. One of the prin­ci­pals in the intel­li­gence-com­mu­ni­ty-con­trolled drug traf­fick­ing milieu through which Mohamed Atta and asso­ciates infil­trat­ed the Unit­ed States was recent­ly arrest­ed in Hous­ton for drug smug­gling. Dekkers has entered a seal plea agree­ment, which will like­ly mute any pub­lic dis­clo­sure of the find­ings in the case.


Falling to Earth: September 11th Flight School Operator Rudi Dekkers Arrested for Drug Trafficking

Long able to escape legal ret­ri­bu­tion for his actions, Huff­man Avi­a­tion oper­a­tor Rudi Dekkers appears to have run out of luck. The Dutch/German pilot who ran the flight school through which 9/11 hijack­er Mohammed Atta and his Ger­man and Aus­tri­an asso­ciates infil­trat­ed the Unit­ed States has been arrest­ed in Hous­ton for drug traf­fick­ing. It remains to be seen what comes of this inves­ti­ga­tion, but the impli­ca­tions are poten­tial­ly stag­ger­ing.


Mohamed Atta and German Intelligence

The BND–the Ger­man intel­li­gence ser­vice that evolved from Hitler’s East­ern Front intel­li­gence organization–may well have played a role in the 9/11 attacks. 9/11 hijack­er Mohamed Atta trav­eled under the aus­pices of the Carl Duis­berg Gesellschaft and appears to have made con­tact with his Ger­man spon­sors while study­ing Ger­man at the Goethe Insti­tute of Cairo. The Goethe Insti­tute is wide­ly viewed as a front for Ger­man intel­li­gence. Atta enrolled at the Goethe Insti­tute after being encour­aged by his father, who, accord­ing to Daniel Hop­sick­er, was seen in South Flori­da with Atta.
