FTR #336 Walking the Snake, Part 3

Lis­ten: Side 1 | Side 2

1. Sup­ple­ment­ing the dis­cus­sion and analy­sis from ear­li­er broad­casts on the sub­ject of the ter­ror­ist blitzkrieg of 9/11, this pro­gram derives its title from the Nazi tract Serpent’s Walk. It is cer­tain­ly believ­able that, like The Turn­er Diaries (also pub­lished by Nation­al Van­guard Books), the book is actu­al­ly a blue­print for what is going to take place. It is a nov­el about a Nazi takeover of the Unit­ed States in the mid­dle of the 21st cen­tu­ry. The book describes the Third Reich going under­ground, buy­ing into the Amer­i­can media, and tak­ing over the coun­try. “It assumes that Hitler’s war­rior elite – the SS – didn’t give up their strug­gle for a White world when they lost the Sec­ond World War. Instead their sur­vivors went under­ground and adopt­ed some of their tac­tics of their ene­mies: they began build­ing their eco­nom­ic mus­cle and buy­ing into the opin­ion-form­ing media. A cen­tu­ry after the war they are ready to chal­lenge the democ­rats and Jews for the hearts and minds of White Amer­i­cans, who have begun to have their fill of gov­ern­ment-enforced mul­ti-cul­tur­al­ism and ‘equal­i­ty.’” (From the back cov­er of Serpent’s Walk by “Ran­dolph D. Calver­hall;” Copy­right 1991 [SC]; Nation­al Van­guard Books; 0–937944-05‑X.)

2. In the book, the Nazi takeover takes place after a bioter­ror attack on the Unit­ed States that kills much of the Amer­i­can pop­u­la­tion. The pro­gram focus­es large­ly on some of the Ger­man con­nec­tions to the 9/11 attacks.

3. The pro­gram begins with dis­cus­sion of alleged links between Tim­o­thy McVeigh and men of Mid­dle East­ern extrac­tion. (“Jus­tice Depart­ment Won’t Let Agent Tes­ti­fy” by James Pat­ter­son; Indi­anapo­lis Star; 11/3/2001.)

4. Two FBI agents with infor­ma­tion cor­rob­o­rat­ing this account have been blocked from tes­ti­fy­ing at the state tri­al of Ter­ry Nichols. (Idem.) There are numer­ous con­nec­tions between Nazi ele­ments and Mid­dle East­ern nation­al­ist and fas­cist move­ments.

5. In the con­text of McVeigh’s alleged Mid­dle East­ern links, it is inter­est­ing (and, per­haps, sig­nif­i­cant) that a num­ber of Islam­ic indi­vid­u­als from Okla­homa are being inves­ti­gat­ed in con­nec­tion to the 9/11 attacks. (“FBI Says 20th Hijack­er Held by INS on Sep­tem­ber 11” [AP]; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 11/15/2001; p. A12.)

6. Ger­man inves­ti­ga­tors esti­mate that scores of thou­sands of ter­ror­ists have been trained in the Al Qae­da camps. (“Al-Que­da Camps ‘Trained 70,000 in Ter­ror’” by Hugh Williamson; Finan­cial Times; 11/15/2001; p. 4.)

7. The Ger­man anti-ter­ror­ist pro­vi­sions are com­ple­men­tary to the doc­u­ment­ed sup­port of Ger­man fas­cists for Islam­ic extrem­ists. “More­over, any for­mal crim­i­nal inves­ti­ga­tions of sus­pect­ed ter­ror­ists were allowed only if there was suf­fi­cient evi­dence that they might com­mit acts of ter­ror­ism on Ger­man soil. They were immune from pros­e­cu­tion if con­fin­ing them­selves to spread­ing pro­pa­gan­da or pro­vid­ing logis­ti­cal sup­port to ter­ror­ist groups abroad. Above all, a law gave legal pro­tec­tion and vir­tu­al immu­ni­ty to for­eign reli­gious organizations—an eas­i­ly obtain­able sta­tus that poten­tial­ly pro­vid­ed excel­lent cov­er for ter­ror­ist groups.” (“Sept. 11 a Wake-Up Call for Ger­many” by Eric Geiger; San Fran­cis­co Chron­i­cle; 11/3/2001; p. A4.) Despite these lim­i­ta­tions, the behav­ior of Ger­man secu­ri­ty in con­nec­tion with the 9/11 attacks is more than a lit­tle sus­pi­cious. (This should not be mis­un­der­stood as imply­ing that there are not Ger­man intel­li­gence and police oper­a­tives who are sin­cere­ly opposed to fas­cism and ter­ror.)

8. Ger­man domes­tic intel­li­gence oper­a­tives had a tip in 2000 that a Ham­burg apart­ment uti­lized by Mohammed Atta should be sur­veilled, but their efforts were frus­trat­ed. (“In Ham­burg Ter­ror Probe, Grim Lessons” by Ian John­son; Wall Street Jour­nal; 11/14/2001; p. A17.)

9. In addi­tion, Ger­man offi­cials were remark­ably slow to inves­ti­gate an Iran­ian-owned air­field out­side of Ham­burg, at which Mid­dle East­ern stu­dents were giv­en fly­ing lessons. (Ibid.; p. A18.)

10. An Iran­ian-owned air­field out­side Ham­burg (the same air­field?) with con­nec­tions to Islam­ic extrem­ists has been used to smug­gle nuclear mate­ri­als to Iran. (“Islam­ic Iran’s Amer­i­can Base” by Ken­neth R. Tim­mer­man; Amer­i­can Spec­ta­tor; 12/1995.)

11. Intrigu­ing­ly, the air­field appears to be asso­ci­at­ed with the Mostazafan Foun­da­tion, head­ed by Mohsen Rafiq-doust, the for­mer min­is­ter of Iran’s bru­tal Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guards. (Idem.) The Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guards seized the hostages from the U.S. embassy in Tehran in 1979. (It should be not­ed that the col­lab­o­ra­tion between the Reagan/Bush cam­paign and the Iran­ian fun­da­men­tal­ists in delay­ing the release of those hostages has come to be known as “the Octo­ber Sur­prise.”

12. An Islam­ic cen­ter in Potomac, Mary­land, car­ries anti-Semit­ic lit­er­a­ture penned by Achmed Huber, who has termed the Aya­tol­lah Khome­i­ni “the liv­ing con­tin­u­a­tion of Adolf Hitler.” (Idem.) (Huber is con­nect­ed to Ger­man Nazi ele­ments, as well as an alleged fund­ing con­duit of Al Qae­da being inves­ti­gat­ed in con­nec­tion with the insid­er trad­ing that took place pri­or to 9/11.) (The fas­cist Third Posi­tion extols Khome­i­ni as a role mod­el.)

13. Known for efforts to acquire nuclear tech­nol­o­gy, Al Qae­da has been alleged to have the sym­pa­thies of peo­ple asso­ci­at­ed with the con­struc­tion of Pak­istan’s atom­ic bomb. In that con­text, Pakistan’s atom­ic bomb was con­struct­ed with the fun­da­men­tal assis­tance of a Ger­man, Ernst Pif­fl. (“Ger­man Tech­nol­o­gy Behind Pak­istani Bomb” La Repub­li­ca; 5/29/98; p. 2.)

14. Iraq has been known for its efforts to acquire weapons of mass destruc­tion and for its sup­port of Islam­ic ter­ror­ists. Recent­ly, it has been report­ed that Iraqi agents have been very active in Ger­many. (“Iraq Slipped Secret Agents Into Ger­many” by Hugh Williamson and Philip Jak­lin; Finan­cial Times; 11/1/2001; p. 3.)

15. It would appear that Ger­mans are con­tin­u­ing to assist the Iraqis with their efforts at pro­duc­ing chem­i­cal and bio­log­i­cal weapons and mak­ing them avail­able to ter­ror­ists. (“Defec­tors Cite Iraqi Train­ing for Ter­ror­ism” by Chris Hedges; New York Times; 11/8/2001; pp. A1-B2.)

16. In that con­text, one should remem­ber the pro­found Ger­man Nazi con­nec­tions to Iraq, dat­ing back to World War II. In Ger­many itself, a bur­glary by some­one rep­re­sent­ing him­self as a com­mon thief pre­sent­ed the Ger­man author­i­ties with 40 pages of doc­u­ments, alleged­ly deal­ing with Al Qae­da oper­a­tions. (“In Ger­many, a Cache of Sept. 11 Evi­dence” by Ian John­son, William Boston and Mar­cus Walk­er; Wall Street Jour­nal; 10/17/2001; p. A22.)

17. In con­trast with its pro­fessed efforts to do every­thing pos­si­ble to neu­tral­ize ter­ror­ist ele­ments oper­at­ing from Ger­man soil, Ger­many has proved less than vig­or­ous in insti­tut­ing finan­cial trans­paren­cy laws that would have fur­thered that goal. (“Ger­man Banks Balk at Moves to Track Cash” by Mar­cus Walk­er; Wall Street Jour­nal; 10/29/2001.)

18. Germany’s ret­i­cence in that regard is note­wor­thy, because Ger­many appears to have been the finan­cial hub of the oper­a­tion. (“Data Point to Ger­many as Attack Finance Hub” by Ian John­son, David S. Cloud; Wall Street Jour­nal; 9/26/2001; p. A3.)

19. Among the recip­i­ents of Ger­man funds in the Unit­ed States, Zacarias Mous­saaoui has been sus­pect­ed of involve­ment with the 9/11 attacks. (“Man Held in U.S. Was Wired 2 Large Sums from Ger­many” by Philip Shenon; New York Times; 10/16/2001; p. B8.)

20. In the wake of the attacks, a Ger­man roo­mate of the hijack­ers in Flori­da has indi­cat­ed that numer­ous oth­er Ger­mans and Aus­tri­ans came and went with­out arous­ing sus­pi­cion. The ques­tion aris­es whether, per­haps, there was con­crete assis­tance for the attacks by agents of Ger­man intel­li­gence and/or the Under­ground Reich.

When Thorsten Bier­mann arrived at the Flori­da Flight Train­ing Cen­ter a year ago for a six-week course for an instru­ment license, he was pleased to be housed with three oth­er Ger­man-speak­ing stu­dents in a school-owned apart­ment with­in walk­ing dis­tance of the air­field. . . .

. . . . But the Lebanese left a night­mare lega­cy when he turned in his key. He was Ziad Samir Jar­rah, one of the sus­pect­ed Sept. 11 air­plane hijack­ers, and the young Ger­man has been taint­ed by asso­ci­a­tion.

Because Bier­mann hails from Ham­burg, where Jar­rah and at least two oth­ers iden­ti­fied by the FBI as hijack­ers lived, his name turned up on an FBI watch list. His bank account was frozen and police pored over his trans­ac­tions. Jour­nal­ists have showed up with cam­eras at his moth­er’s house in their hunt for accom­plices in the ter­ror attacks.

Ger­man police have noth­ing on him, but they have warned him he may still be brand­ed an unde­sir­able in U.S. immi­gra­tion com­put­er records.

The shad­ow cast over Bier­man­n’s rep­u­ta­tion has dis­cour­aged him from pur­su­ing his life­long desire to work for an air­line. He is left with a tedious job in a med­ical insur­ance office while he waits to see if dis­tract­ed FBI agents will clear his name.

“It was a coin­ci­dence that both Jar­rah and I were from Ham­burg; maybe that is what raised sus­pi­cion,” said Bier­mann, not­ing that none of the oth­er Ger­mans or Aus­tri­ans who moved in and out of the apart­ment he shared with Jar­rah had been placed on the FBI watch list. . . .

“Sus­pi­cion Hangs Over Hijack Suspect’s Ex-Room­mate” by Car­ol J. Williams; Los Ange­les Times; 11/15/2001; p. A4.

21. Ziad Jar­rah, the sus­pect allud­ed to in the pre­vi­ous point of dis­cus­sion, had an uncle with links to the Libyan secret ser­vice. (“Ger­mans Probe Stasi’s Link With Sus­pect” [AP]; Wall Street Jour­nal; 11/5/2001; p. A17.) The Libyan secret ser­vice was put togeth­er by Gestapo chief Hein­rich Mueller, the con­sum­mate­ly skilled and dead­ly chief of secu­ri­ty for the Bor­mann orga­ni­za­tion.

22. Per­haps because of foot drag­ging and (pos­si­bly) com­plic­i­ty on the part of the Ger­mans in con­nec­tion with the inves­ti­ga­tion, FBI per­son­nel in Ger­many have been at log­ger­heads with their hosts. (“Ten­sions Erupt Between Ger­mans and FBI” by by Hugh Williamson and Philip Jak­lin; Finan­cial Times; 10/16/2001; p. 5.)

23. A Ger­man intel­li­gence agent con­sid­ered expert on the sub­ject of Arab ter­ror­ism was mur­dered in Libya, appar­ent­ly by the Bin Laden net­work. (“FBI Probe Into WTC Attack Pro­vides Fresh Lead in Case of Mur­dered Ver­fas­sungss­chutz Agent” by J. Hufelschulte & C. Thal­mann; Focus; #41 [10/8/2001]; p. 36.)

24. A sus­pect in his death car­ried the same name as a sus­pect in the World Trade Cen­ter attack. (Idem.)

25. Like the mur­dered Ver­fas­sungss­chutz offi­cial, FBI agent John O’Neill (in charge of the Amer­i­can inves­ti­ga­tion and killed in the WTC attacks) appears to have been “dou­bled on” by ele­ments in his own com­mand and oper­a­tional struc­ture. In a book recent­ly pub­lished in France, O’Neill stat­ed that the inves­ti­ga­tion into Bin Laden had been frus­trat­ed by Amer­i­can cor­po­rate con­nec­tions to Sau­di Ara­bia and “oil.” (“Oil Diplo­ma­cy Mud­dled U.S. Pur­suit of Bin Laden, New Book Con­tends” by Ethan Bron­ner; New York Times; 11/12/2001; p. B6.)

26. O’Neill resigned his posi­tion at the FBI in protest over the obstruc­tion and believed the Saud­is to be deeply com­plic­it in the event. (Idem.)
