9-11 crash victim Barbara Olson arrested in Europe

by Tom Flocco

Austria--September 22, 2005--TomFlocco.com--French and American intelligence agents have arrested Barbara Olson, the wife of a former Bush administration official, a few days ago on the Polish-Austrian border, according to agents close to and with knowledge of the incident.

The alleged 9.11 Pentagon crash victim was found to be in possession of millions in fake interbank Italian lyra currency, according to the agents.

Olson was also reportedly in possession of a fraudulent Vatican passport and was held on charges of counterfeiting.

The former Fox News TV commentator and Independent Women's Forum activist was said to have called her husband Theodore Olson from her plane to seek help in countering hijackers who had allegedly taken over American flight 77 which the Bush administration said was crashed into the Pentagon- although the impact only left an opening approximately 16 feet across.

Ted Olson is the former Bush 43 Solicitor General who had previously argued the President's legal interests in the controversial Bush-Gore 2000 election recount case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Mrs. Olson's alleged cell phone call to her husband was employed by the administration and the 9.11 Commission as partial proof that American 77 crashed into the Pentagon, despite physical evidence to the contrary.

The Pentagon crash evidence was ignored and obstructed by both the Commission and previously by the Joint Congressional Intelligence Committee in its own separate probe.

Due to the ongoing sensitive nature of the arrest, investigation and questioning, one source who declined to be named for this story, told TomFlocco.com that Olson's call to her husband was a fraud and that another projectile impacted the Pentagon other than Olson's plane.

The agents were said to have closed in to arrest the former television pundit because the evidence of counterfeiting and passport violations was obvious and that the timing was right.

According to the agents, Barbara Olson is reportedly considered to be a conspirator to the obstruction of justice in the mass murders of 3,000 individuals on September 11, 2001 in the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the alleged crash in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Olson's arrest and potential appearance at trial in the United States would undoubtedly have a profound impact upon current "Able Danger" hearings in the Senate and past probes by both the Joint Congressional Intelligence Committee and the 9.11 Commission.


Barbara Olson, a conservative commentator and attorney, alerted her husband, Solicitor General Ted Olson, that the plane she was on was being hijacked during 9/11/01.

A short time later the plane crashed into the Pentagon. Barbara Olson is presumed to have died in the crash.

Her husband said she called him twice on a cell phone from American Airlines Flight 77, which was en route from Washington Dulles International Airport to Los Angeles.

Ted Olson told CNN that his wife said all passengers and flight personnel, including the pilots, were herded to the back of the plane by armed hijackers. The only weapons she mentioned were knives and cardboard cutters.

She felt nobody was in charge and asked her husband to tell the pilot what to do.

Ted Olson notified the Justice Department command center immediately.

He told CNN that his wife had originally been booked on a flight Monday, but delayed her departure because Tuesday was his birthday and she wanted to be with him in the morning.

"Okay Tom, time to put up or shut up" 22.Sep.2005 23:05


From WhatReallyHappened.com's headline:

"Okay Tom, time to put up or shut up

Tom Flocco's credibility has been called into question recently with regards to his reports of impending indictments against the White House criminals. Now Tom has confounded his supporters with this latest story, which is that Barbara Olsen, officially listed as killed on board one of the 9-11 planes after phoning her family with a cell phone, is still alive and has been arrested in Europe.

Sorry Tom, but I need to see Barbara on this one."

A border between Poland and Austria is about as probable as American intelligence officials cooperating with the French.

a Cascadian geographer currently living and working on that so-called border 23.Sep.2005 06:03


hmm the Polish-Austrian border... hmmm ... that would be Slovakia, the Czech Republic and if you were is south east Austria I gues that would be Hungary.

Please look at a map... the Polish-Austrian border has not existent since the 16th century when king Lajos was defeated by the Ottomans at the battle of Mohac and when it kinda existed it was still defind by which family owned which crown and there was still the kingdoms of Hungary and the Czechlands.

Sadly this post was already suspecious and your geographic mistake makes it look like a total joke.

Did you mean the German-Polish border maybe?

hmmm... 23.Sep.2005 08:44

don't know anything about him as person, but

tommy boy's 9-11 work is starting to make him seem like a dis-info pro tasked with throwing folks off the real story.

could it be that he's intentionally discrediting himself so as to taint the rest of us?

perhaps we're not supposed to notice that, just this wednesday, the pentagon refused to give testimony in a congressional hearing trying to find out more about their "able danger" project and the public charge that mohammed atta was in their sights way back in 1999.

I have quite a bit of loyalty to Flocco. However, you are correct. It is possible that typos are involved in the almost funny missing border, though it sort of shows to me that he relied more exclusively on the "source" that passed it on, which shows the source may have compromised or disinfo being passed along to do just what we assume: discredit him.

Still, come on! Flocco is all over the global pedophile elite, a story that neocon neo-pedophiles don't want touched. I can't fathom a purpose to "outing themselves" on links between Bohemian grove, organized kidnapping and pedophila, etc., particluary when Flocco's more "lefty" take joins well with Alex Jones more "libertarian" take of the Bohemian Grove and 9-11.

The above is rather embarassingly sloppy.

this story 24.Sep.2005 00:43

is vaguely reminiscent...

...bringing to mind that cock-up over the national guard document purporting to show how dumb-ya was a.w.o.l. from his alabama unit. if you'll recall, the document turned out to have been forged (and intentionally released); but the woman who wrote the original confirmed that the information on it was 100% accurate. the problem was that karl rove had set us up. he had his soldiers drag us onto the carpet for using the forgery and we were made to look like hateful cheats, which then put the whole subject off-limits for any further discussion in the media.

and, in this case, we know that those phone calls of barby's from the plane definitely did not take place, and hence, she is more than likely a co-conspirator in the 9-11 ops.; but we are going to have to document every charge we make against her, or we're going to end up looking like fools again and thus lose any chance of finding out what really happened that fateful day.

i'm prepared to give tommy the benefit of the doubt for now; but he's going to have to start putting up real empirical evidence. at which point he's going to have to get himself some deep, deep cover, or some very powerful friends (and, preferrably both).

but, even then, would he, or any one with that kind of info. ever be safe again? i think we all know the answer to that question. so, the fact is, this movement is in desperate need of an insider, a deep throat if you will, who's willing to both blow the whistle and risk their life for the truth. at this point, however, i don't see any one even resembling that kind of person.

Oh please 24.Sep.2005 12:57


Oh, please. Check your freakin sources, Tom! Passing on incorrect information not only makes you look stupid, but it helps to further muddy already muddy water. Don't be part of the problem.

Barbara's Opus Dei Job 26.Sep.2005 03:00

I met the creepy Ted 7+ years ago in the subway system of DC before he was famous. He was illegally leafletting white women to have as many children as possible to prop up Social Security. I didn't know who he was but he resembled doctor killer Paul Hill. I got in his face and accused him of imposing mother-killing pregnancies just to resupply pedophile priests, Bushes (my ex boyfriend ran into Neil at a Bangkok child brothel), and sweatshops. I also described the gruesome pregnancy-caused facial cancer that killed my best friend. He woodenly retorted, "Pregnancy is good for women." After 9/11 I noticed childless ballerina Barbara never risked her own bod! Read "Unholy Trinity" by Marc Aarons and John Loftus about the Vatican ratline that printed up fake IDs to smuggle 10,000 Nazis to North America to help the CIA and GOP. These criminals dressed up like priests and nuns! I read somewhere that Ted and Barbara were actually estranged, so perhaps to avoid an embarrassing and unannullable breakup, Barbara volunteered for undercover work and she made her infamous 9/11 call from Cheney's bunker! Maybe, her new Opus Dei job is Pope Nazinger's embassy ho!

Flocco's source (and Flocco) corrected their mistakes on the border issue and the spelling of Olson's name within 24 hours. And you all will note that the story said "INTERBANK lyra [sic] notes". Still, considering that it's a little odd that Flocco (who I would guess is an Italian-American) misspelled an Italian word, and with a "y" yet, I think that he needs to clean up his act a little bit --- even if he needs to haul ass to get something on the Net before the "Nazi firewalls" go up.

So far this is unconfirmed? 16.Oct.2005 08:11

Ohio Reader

I'd have to say that a story beginning with "So far this is unconfirmed" is a little suspicious--no, a lot suspicious. The editor should have required the writer to confirm the material BEFORE running the story. That's such basic journalism that it's hard to imagine any publication--even a shoddy one--going with this kind of hearsay until it had been checked out thoroughly. As we can see by the other comments, there are several other reasons to be skeptical of this story. Even if all this turns out to be true, it remains a bad story.
