FTR #443 The Serpent’s Diaries Pt. II (Neo-Nazis and 9/11)

MP3 Side 1 | Side 2

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 Har­ris, an Aryan Nations activist, had been appre­hend­ed try­ing to trans­port weapons-grade anthrax. See FTR#’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 Nations 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.

    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
    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:

    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

    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.”
