9.11 investigation

Did the CIA "warn" about spanish "3-11" on March 1st?

Spanish 9/11- another forthcoming cover-up?
Did the CIA "warn" about spanish "3-11" on March 1st?
By Ewing2001
March 13th, 2004
The timing, from a retroperspective look, is more than odd.

On February 29th, newspaper El Pais claimed, that 9/11 was "finalised in the Spanish Mediterranean port of Tarragona... quoting US intelligence sources."
Who are these "intelligence sources" and why did they come forward with this vague information only two weeks ago?
Was that a kind of prior knowledge or "warm-up"-announcement for this week's attack in Spain?
And what about this report on the New York Police, who "intercepted two weeks ago a van packed with half a tonne of explosives, that they said was destined for the Spanish capital"?
Spanish paper El Pais claimed at almost the same time in their article from February 29th (* reg), that "the information" about 9/11 "came from interrogations of bin Ramsi al-Shaibah (Binalshibh), now in U.S. custody, and was passed to Spanish intelligence services by U.S. counterparts".
Disturbingly, noone ever saw Ramsi Binalshibh -with one exception: The CIA.
However, there was no trial against Binalshibh yet.
Why?
The White House also refused to allow Binalshibh to testify for both of the german 9/11 trials, which tried to get some statements from him about Hamburg "suspects" Abdelghani Mzoudi and Mounir El Motassadeq. This was the only reason, why the German court acquitted Mzoudi and they might do it again for El Motassadeq.
What does the White House have to hide?
Why is George Bush not answering the 23 questions under oath and in public, compiled by the Family Steering Committee for the 9/11 Independent Commission?
Another request by Spanish judge Guillermo Ruiz Polanco, to hear more from Binalshibh about "the Tarragona meeting", was denied as well.
Also, yet another trial of the "20th hijacker", Zacarias Moussaoui, is still blocked, because Judge Brinkema is waiting for statements of Ramsi Binalshibh.
Isn't it the duty of the White House to shed more lights on the whereabouts of Binalshibh?
The 9/11 Family Members of almost 3,000 people, who died in the Sep11th attacks and the spanish (and international) "3/11"-family members of almost 200 people, who died, and more than 1,460 wounded people, deserve an answer to this question.
Millions of Spaniards, who have flooded the streets of Spanish cities, deserve an answer as well, to stop endless speculations and questions about oddities, which just don't add up:
Who is really orchestrating these attacks, which only play into the mindset of oil-globalists and many military contractors, including Bechtel, Halliburton Kellogg Brown + Root or Executive Outcomes, which employed mainly ex-Special Forces soldiers from the South African military, with ties to British SAS, and recently started to protect oil fields in Iraq?
Why should "Al-Quaeda" kill innocent civilians in Spain, who protested against the war last year?
What is the real reason for this attack, only 3 days before an election and on the same weekend of a counterterrorism conference on Thursday in Vienna, hosted by the United Nations and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe?
Who is really behind "Al-Quaeda" and why is the U.S. Intelligence not able to trace back their "emails", while at the same time "closing in" on Bin Laden, but then again not able to locate his fax-machine?
Why is the Pakistan- and Saudi connection not fully disclosed?
Would Al-Quaeda really play with this bizarre numerology: The devastating bomb blasts which shook Madrid on Thursday came exactly 911 days after the 9/11 strikes on the United States?
The "evidence" against Al-Quaeda:
Alcala de Henares, a town east of Madrid, is where investigators believe the bombs may have been put on board the trains. Then we have, in the same city, the discovery of a truck with seven detonators and a cassette recording of verses of the Koran.
Did these terrorists really have no time to remove this truck? Why is it, that they follow this "discovery" immediately with an e-mail to London-based Arabic newspaper al-Quds al-Arabi?
Why would "al-Quaeda" contact al-Quds al-Arabic, which is run by Abd Al-Bari Atwan, a loyalist of Saddam Hussein?
Abu Hafs al-Masri, the so called affiliated group of "Al-Queada", said it planted also a car-bomb in August at the JW Marriott hotel in Jakarta that killed 12 people and carried out attacks in Istanbul on two synagogues, the British consulate and the Turkish headquarters of HSBC Holdings Plc.
However, Indonesian authorities linked a different group, Jemaah Islamiyah, to the Jakarta bomb.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that all four Istanbul suicide bombers were turkish, not arabs.
What about the fact, that the offices of HSBC were being refurbished? Did they have prior notice? Is "al Qaeda" so unlucky or incompetent to hit mostly empty buildings twice in 2 double bombings?
In fact, the British Foreign Office did already post Turkey as a "danger zone" in the weeks prior to the attacks. Turkey's broadsheet paper Millyet quoted a "US secret service agent" as a source of its story for "an imminent suicide bomb". It said "authorities nationwide were alerted on November 14", one week prior the turkish attacks.
Abu Hafs al-Masri also claimed, that they caused the August 2003 blackout in the U.S. that disrupted electricity to 49 million people, that ``appears to be no more than wishful thinking,'' the FBI said in a Sept. 4, 2003 statement on its Web site.
As Iran-Contra-affair-author Barbara Honegger recognised, "al-Masri happens also to be the name of the IRAQI Ph.D. student whose 10-year-old thesis was misquoted by Blair in his hyped Iraq WMD dossier." "Another fake claim of Iraq-'Al Qaeda' links?"
CNN says there is "question as to whether it exists at all beyond one person with a computer and a fax machine".
This "group" appears to be credible?
ETA, a Marxist-Leninist group, immediately denied carrying out the spanish train attacks and Abu Hafs al-Masri doesn't look credible enough.
Who else is left?
Who else is profiting from the spanish attack?
It might work out for two clever men in Washington, Richard Perle and David Frum, who were trying to drive a wedge between Spain and France, in the name of the war on terror. They recently released a book, "How to Win the War on Terror", in which they argued, that the United States should stop supporting "a more closely integrated Europe" and "force European governments to choose between Paris and Washington".
As the Guardian pointed out, it's France that has the largest Muslim population in the European Union and, since the Basques live on both sides of the Franco-Spanish frontier, it's France that is Spain's most important European partner in dealing with the threat of Basque terrorism.

Back to spanish paper El Pais. One of their contributors is Marco S. Vicenzino, lawyer and admitted to the New York State Bar. Vicenzino is also contributing to Fox News, Al Jazeera, Dubai TV, Saudi TV and Kuwait TV. He is also term member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and involved in fund-raising and developing research projects for security policy and civil-military relations in Latin America; developing "The Next Generation Strategic Thinkers Program".
Co-founder and board member of El Pais is Diego Hidalgo. His new book, "The Future of Europe", explores the economic and social problems of member countries of the European Union. Other publications include "The European Monetary Union: The Conflict of Creating First and Second Class Citizens in the EU". Hidalgo is also a Founding Director and Senior Fellow of The Gorbachev Foundation of North America. Other members include John M. Deutch, former Deputy Secretary of Defense, and former Director of the CIA.
Deutch is also member of the CFR. On October 17, 2000, CFR-head Peter G. Peterson of Blackstone Group, L.P., purchased, the participating mortgage secured by 7 World Trade Center, a building, which was controlled by real estate developer Larry Silverstein, a building that collapsed under undisclosed circumstances on Sep11th, never hit by any plane, on 5:25 PM on Sep11th.

An interesting team.
The NeoCons hijacked the US Government almost 3 years ago.
In their documents of their related think-tank PNAC ("Rebuilding America's Defenses"), they described in September 2000, why they needed a "process of transformation", which "...is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor."
After 9/11, is this now the spanish Pearl Harbour?
Apparently it was also the same neocon-gang around Douglas Feith, Lewis "Scooter" Libby (also under investigation for the Wilson/Plame-Traitorgate), William Luti, Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz, who misled the U.S. Nation with fake evidence against Iraq, as recently reconfirmed by former Pentagon staff member Karen Kwiatkowski, who was closely working under them and resigned under protest exactly 1 year ago.
"It wasn't intelligence?it was propaganda. . . they'd take a little bit of intelligence, cherry pick it, make it sound much more exciting, usually by taking it out of context, usually by juxtaposition of two pieces of information that don't belong together."
Kwiatkowski is not alone.

Former UN-Inspectors Hans Blix ("The war in Iraq was illegal"), Scott Ritter ("Bodyguard of lies"), J?rn Siljeholm ("Powell bluffed the UN"), Jacques Baute ("I want the actual documentary evidence"), Richard Butler ("Howard should resign"), David Kay ("There were no stockpiles"), Peter Franck ("A big bluff"> and many more, shared their doubts about WMD, against the White House.
Currently, in Australia, Philip Flood, the director-general of the intelligence agency ONA, is under fire. In England, Tony Blair, strongly lacked credibility.

Meanwhile, there have been reports that U.S. forces have unloaded a large cargo of parts for constructing long-range missiles and weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the southern ports of Iraq, by themselves.
In a letter, last week released by the Senate Armed Service Committee, it turns out that the Policy Counter Terror Evaluation Group, the rump intelligence unit that was the basis for Douglas Feith's Office of Special Plans, held formal briefings for the NSC and Vice President Cheney's staff. Feith, is also the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy who built the OSP and its intelligence unit into the "lie factory" that produced bogus intelligence on Iraq.
The Neocons have yet to testify at both 9/11 Commission and Iraq Inquiry. They had plenty reasons for the Sep11th attacks, they also planned a war against Iraq, before Sep11th.

Alcala de Henares, center of the current investigation in Spain, contains a military academy. In 1994, after serving as the military headquarters of Alcal?, the Ministry of Public Works, Transportation and the Environment (M.O.P.T.M.A.) and the reopened University of Alcal? restored it, returning it to its original use as a university building.

In 1948, EZAPAC, which operates under the direct control of the Air Force Reaction Forces, performed their first parachute jump with their highly successful parachute unit (1st Airborne Troops Battalion of the Air Force).

In 1952 the unit moved its base of operations to Alcala de Henares, where it was once again redesignated. In 1989, EZAPAC was deployed to Namibia as part of a UN peacekeeping force. EZAPAC operators provided security for a Spanish Air Force detachment flying humanitarian relief supplies to refugees in the country.
Since August of 1993, EZAPAC has supported both of NATO's IFOR and SFOR missions in Bosnia.
Officially, Spain does not think it was al-Qaeda behind this week's attack. The United States thinks otherwise.

Why?
Is the world ready for the real truth or is this just the beginning of yet another cover-up?

Probably the bogus war on terrorism has to continue. Probably we will also have an april-surprise, a may surprise and finally an october surprise. The world is either too coward, too deceived, manipulated, brainwashed or all of this, to wake up.

"America is now the only global superpower, and Eurasia is the globe's central arena. Hence, what happens to the distribution of power on the Eurasian continent will be of decisive importance to America's global primacy and to America's historical legacy." Zbigniew Brzezinski, CFR

"Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is a very real prospect of a new world order." George Herbert Walker Bush

"The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly...it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over." Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister

"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."
Henry Kissinger
