White House whistleblower Richard Clarke corroborates key allegations.
Ten years after 9/11 the official story is unravelling with new revelations from dissident security expert Richard Clarke, the then head of counter terrorism at the White House.
Clarke has given a bombshell interview to the film makers who made 911 Press For Truth providing more evidence for what many 9/11 sceptics have been saying for years: the 9/11 attacks were allowed to happen by officials in the CIA who could have stopped them, and mere incompetence cannot be the explanation. Clarke is not saying this was their intent, something that is hard to prove. But the question is now unavoidable: given that 9/11 resulted from gross misconduct by senior officials, why did America start two wars on the back of 9/11 when it should have been investigating and sacking officials at home.
Perhaps more important in the long run: why did the world's corporate media collude with an obviously flawed 9/11 story, and why did America's NATO allies fail to ask any questions before joining in?
Richard Clarke, the White House anti-terror czar had seen his power diminished by the Bush regime prior to 9/11, and after 9/11 wrote an intriguing book "Against all Enemies". This is a reference to the US oath of allegiance "against all enemies foreign and domestic". Note the "and domestic".
The book contained several bombshells but the mainstream media failed to follow up the leads Clarke offered and the book was ignored by many 9/11 sceptics because it ostensibly supported the official 9/11 story. Now Clarke is stirring things up again, drawing attention to one of the many crucial holes of the official 9/11 story: the failure to explain why the FBI was blocked from investigating some of the people who were later named as 9/11 hijackers. This was systematic and happened not to one FBI operation but to three that we know of.
Clarke has corroborated many of the claims and possibilities raised in this writer's book 911 The New Evidence. In particular he has confirmed that the CIA took a decision to protect the suspected 9/11 hijackers from investigation by the FBI, by law the lead agency in anti-terrorism matters. This bombshell confirms what many sceptics have been saying for years. Clarke concurs with 911 The New Evidence too over the three key suspects: Cofer Black, head of the CIA counter terrorism unit, the then CIA boss George Tenet (who later received a severe reprimand form his own Inspector General for undisclosed failings on 9/11) and the head of the CIA's Osama Bin Laden unit who has now been named as Richard Blee.
Clarke has confirmed that not only the FBI but the military were blocked by the CIA. The unnamed secret military unit that was also ordered off the case could be the Able danger team, who say they identifed alleged 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta as a key terrorist well before 9/11. Or it could refer to the mysterious Catchers Mitt operation referenced in 911 The New Evidence. In one of the many unlikely coincidences of 9/11, the same operational name was attached to the reinforcement of the section of the Pentagon Wall which was hit in the attacks.
Here are the key quotes from Clarke:
"George Tenet followed all of the information about al-Qaeda in microscopic detail," (contradicts Tenet's own statements and the general Washington line that no-one senior was aware of the Al Qaeda threat)
"It's not as I originally thought, which was that one lonely CIA analyst got this information and didn't somehow recognize the significance of it," Clarke said during the interview. "No, fifty, 5-0, CIA personnel knew about this. Among the fifty people in CIA who knew these guys were in the country was the CIA director... We therefore conclude that there was a high-level decision inside CIA ordering people not to share that information," (this refutes the tired old incompetence argument, it is also illegal in itself under the Clinto terrorism directives)
"It is also possible, as some FBI investigators suspect, the CIA was running a joint venture with Saudi intelligence in order to get around that restriction ... These are only theories about the CIA's failures to communicate vital information to the bureau ... Perhaps the agency decided that Saudi intelligence would have a better chance of recruiting these men than the Americans. That would leave no CIA fingerprints on the operation as well."
If you substitute Mossad for the Saudis, you have the explanation for the dancing Isrealis, apprehended for filming and celebrating as the Towers collapsed and released later on orders from the Bush administration. The existence of just such a Mossad/CIA 9/11 operation was claimed soon after 9/11 by UK journalist Gordon Thomas, based on his Mossad and CIA sources.
Former Counterterrorism Czar Accuses Tenet, Other CIA Officials of Cover-Up
as long as there remain questions, and doubt about the "official" story........ investigations and discussions will go on. Those that prefer to accept what they are told like non thinking, non questioning sheep.......that is your choice.

that is NOT the truth. That is YOUR OPINION. and as such.......is what it is. Everyone has one. The real TRUTH is a lot more difficult to ascertain in current day politics.
