You may have already heard that 20-year
Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer, the second-ranking
civilian in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence, and former CIA clandestine
services case officer (Robert Steele) stated that "9/11
was at a minimum allowed to happen as a pretext for war", and
it was probably an inside job (see Amazon Customer Review dated October
However, no one has noticed that Mr. Steele posted the following additional
comment on February 3, 2007:
1) 9-11 was planned and executed by Bin Laden with direct
assistance from elements of the Pakistani government.
2) No fewer than 9, some say 11, governments warned the US at the
highest levels. I believe that Dick
Cheney saw this as a gift of heaven, and organized the 9-11 exercises
so as to have complete operational control of the U.S. government,
and he "let it happen."
3) I believe that Larry Silverstein, new owner of the World Trade
Center, NOT the U.S. Government, was briefed on this by the Mossad,
and saw an opportunity to solve his asbestos problem at taxpayer expense.
I believe that Larry Silverstein, in partnership with the security
firm managed by a Bush family member, installed the controlled demolitions
and "pulled" all three buildings, murdering the people in them, in
order to clear the area for rebuilding and get the $7 billion in insurance
money. I believe that ... the insurance company executives are in
cahoots with Silversten and got major kick-backs, because there is
no way a serious insurance company investigation could have ignored
the evidence of thermite being briefed to the Senate this very week.
4) Finally, I do think there is evidence of CIA and FBI blundering
about and aiding "assets" who participated in the first World Trade
Center car bombing, but it is very important to distinguish between
bureaucratic incompetence; Dick Cheney's deliberate decision to let
it happen; and Larry Silverstein's alleged dmurder of all those people
This has NOT been properly investigated, and it needs to be.
I am not yet sure which
of Mr. Steele's new conclusions I agree or disagree with; but, for
the sake of completeness, I have posted his update.
