9.11 investigation

!? Barbara Olsen Arrested In Europe: 9/11 Breakthrough, or DisInfo...!?

According to TomFlocco.com , Sept. 22, 2005:
"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."

True or disinfo?

Just out on TomFlocco.com.

Is it truly a 9/11 breakthrough, or a disinfo ploy...?

Anyone care to research through the night and get back to us tomorrow? [Keep in mind that if it IS disinfo, one might look silly or worse if one forwards this on unchecked... :( ]

That being said, here is the full story from


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.

"Okay Tom, time to put up or shut up" 22.Sep.2005 22:58


Yes, it's one hell of a good story but I'm waiting impatiently for confirmation, or as WhatReallyHappened.com's headline says:

"Okay Tom, time to put up or shut up"

Posted Sep 22, 2005 08:56 PM PST

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.

Poland and Austria don't share a border 22.Sep.2005 23:41

Mr. Groovy

FFS, look at a map before posting shite like this.

and 23.Sep.2005 04:12


italian 'lyre' (spelled ('lire' or 'lira') is worthless.

talk about interesting "timing" 23.Sep.2005 07:15


what a coincidence, isn't it?

that the sudden appearance of Barbara Olson, on the non-existent Polish-Austrian border, happens at the same time that British troops disguised as terrorists are seized, then freed in a gigantic debacle in Basra, Iraq?

 link to www.globalresearch.ca


let's forget about the fact that the British spy fiasco PROVES that agents provocateurs have been blowing up "suicide bombs" in Iraq!!!!!

British and US complicity in fake terrorism is proven!!!!!

not to mention that the Pentagon SHUT DOWN questioning about Able Danger!!!!


so we have CLEAR KNOWLEDGE and complicity in PREVENTING the US Intelligence officers from arresting Mohammad Atta!!!!


And here is this "Tom Flocco" character talking about this ridiculous Olson crap. He is a charlatan and should be horse-whipped.

Disinfo 23.Sep.2005 08:31


A fairly accurate gauge of information sensitivity is the responce pattern.
Myself, I need more conformation from -ahem- living witnesses. If, indeed she is still alive... I wouldn't try to get a life insurance policy on her now.

hey 25.Sep.2005 02:33

and another thing

Don't they use Euros in Italy?

flocco changes story 25.Sep.2005 11:15


he's now changed it to the german polish border

What if Tom is right? 25.Sep.2005 12:50

Sick of the Back Stabbing

Do we have to wonder why we cannot manage to stop the corruption of a few sick people when we outnumber them by the billions? What if Tom is right? Makes sense to me that Olsen is still alive when it was already ousted the call didn't happen. Makes further sense that she is alive since they did not recover ONE body. What doesn't make sense is what really happened to all the people on that flight? What doesn't make sense is how Rense's site already has the headline "Olsen story has no legs", and WRH says, "Put up or shut up", and now many on this site are jumping on Tom's back and yet what do they have to counter it with? How about helping Tom out? Anyone else have important "contacts" to verify or discount this issue? Vialls is gone so there goes those valuable contacts and his incredible contribution to the truth. Who's next?

If I didn't know better I would have to say that all alternative sites that use valuable time to go after one another would be falling right into their plan to keep us all confused and trusting no one. Again more division to prevent us from ever actually working together. Divided we fall.

Stories like this are not unlike Viall's real breakthrough stories of the Peak oil scam, Hurricanes for profit etc. Finally Real breaking news. When these stories hit they also show the truth of alternative media outlets. They reveal just WHO is doing the real investigative work, WHO has the real contacts, and those who are merely "repeating" the news and riding on the coattails after someone else already did all the work.

Time may or may not tell if Tom is right on this. Either way, he did get it OUT there while the story was breaking. He did correct the border issue too and that appears to be to no avail. Everyone in this forum knows Barbara can easily "disappear" and make this bombshell wither. Time is of the essence. Unless alternative media outlets want to be seen as corrupt as mainstream media outlets they will put this story OUT there NOW with no prejudices. Because maybe, just MAYBE, seeing her picture, and reading this story, will allow the eyes of the world to help us corroborate this story from witnesses who could be out there who HAVE seen her but did not know who she was. Now that would be working together. What a novel idea...............

what back stabbing? 25.Sep.2005 14:22


I don't follow the comments by "Sick of the Back Stabbing." The original report referred to a nonexistent "Polish-Austrian border." The so-called corrected report (check the Tom Flocco web site yourself if you don't believe me) STILL refers to "millions in fake interbank Italian lyra". The FORMER Italian currency was called the lira, not lyra, and those banknotes are now worthless everywhere since the euro came into circulation last year. (Also worth noting that 1 million Italian lira used to be worth about 1000 US dollars--not exactly a fortune.)

The Flocco report suffers at the very least from quality control. Since when does an observation like that amount to back stabbing?

Was Barbara Really on Flight 77?? 26.Sep.2005 02:53

Heil Mary

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 is a LIAR and Here's PROOF! 27.Sep.2005 18:32

Larry Lawson hitech1@bluemarble.net

I've documented the COINTELPRO FRAUDS that Flocco uses when he wrote his "Bush Indicted' B.S. and they are the SAME tainted sources for the Barb Olsen story. Stew Webb and Tom Heneghen are PAID GOVT. LIARS!! When I went to Flocco's forums area and exposed him THERE, he FLED his own website then LIED about what happened there. His new website won't allow outside input.

The documentation I have is linked and lengthy. So if you just click this group URL you can copy and past what you want. I'm available for more info at:  hitech1@bluemarble.net

Barbara Olson arrested 30.Sep.2005 12:46

Chris D.

I don't believe the story. I think she's dead. I guess the caveats are, however, is that the story of her death is as credible as the following:

- That a passport from a burning jet can be found in a pile of rubble in downtown Manhattan
- That Air Force jet that can fly at 1800 mph would only fly 325 mph while buildings are burning in New York and DC.
- That cell phone calls can be made from airplanes.
- That a plane highjacked by terrorists that was going to take out the WTC would fly all the way to northernmost tip of the Hudson valley, make an impossible turn and then fly straight south when a simple turn out of Logan airport could have crashed the plane into the North tower in twelve minutes.
- That another highjacked plane out of Logan would wander half way down the eastern seaboard before turning around and move to hit the South tower when the action of the above would have shortened the trip.
- That a passenger on a highjacked plane would make a phone call to his mother and introduce himself using his full name.
- That a highjacker who was rated as a terrible pilot by his instructor could turn a jumbo jet on a sweep and dive into the Pentagon at 530 miles per TWO FEET above the ground.....and not damage cable spools and grass on the front lawn.
- That debris from an airliner that crashed would be scattered over a seven mile debris field.

Face it, folks, Barbara Olson is dead. The story is false. Let's hope to God that it is more true than what we've been given about this fateful day in American history.

Barbara Olson Outs Herself 01.Oct.2005 08:38


If Olson is indeed alive, she must have been looking over her shoulder for the last four years because she would be a "loose thread." The careful planners of 9/11 and coverup do not like loose threads. The best way to "out" (there is no good way) would be with a quasireligious phony passport, plenty of counterfeit currency, etc, so as to attract as many as possible frontier police and bureaucrats to get in the way of the spooks. And then have one friend among this crowd to leak the incident to Flocco.

You can still exchange old lira. 06.Oct.2005 14:49


You can still exchange old lira.

"June 30, 2002 is the last day for changing old currency to Euro at any bank. Thereafter: old currency can continue to be exchanged at national central banks and some specially designated banks."

polibte si prdel! 07.Nov.2005 00:55


Before you blockheads start discovering plots and coups and everybody-lied-to-us's, have a damn close look at a map of Europe (should be more recent than 1914, though) to learn that there is no Polish-Austrian border. When you stop mixing up Czechia with Chechnya and Slovenia with Slovakia, then anyway the best thing you can do is to drink a nice cup of STFU and poke your noses back to your lousy and petty American troubles that the outer world doesn't give a fuck about.

Transylvania 08.Nov.2005 16:27


Dear Honza,
I wish I could speak Transylvania the way you handle the American vernacular. Are you the editor that altered the Flocco dispatch. Be advised that your "petty" American problems have had a historical tendency to influence affairs in Transylvania. LOL

Tom Flocco is an idiot. 26.Nov.2005 00:12

Rob Adcox

Flocco claims that Barbara Olson faked her death and is being held in Poland on charges of counterfeiting. He goes on to say that no airliner hit the Pentagon on 11 Sept. 2001. Um, Mr. Flocco: how many people do you suppose reside in or near the nation's capitol? Do you suppose that maybe -JUST maybe- someone saw an airplane fly towards the Pentagon that morning, and heard and explosion followed by a lot of smoke? And would it be reasonable to conclude, sir, that an airplane did indeed crash into the building? It's more than a little difficult to fake an airliner crash WHILE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITNESS THE EVENT, SIR. Since your premise is that the 11 Sept. attacks were fake, is there any reason to believe that Barbara Olson was arrested for counterfeiting? As a person with a Bipolar disorder, I feel uniquely qualified to ask you a question: Are you nuts? Perhaps you needs my meds more than I do. I can endure the hallucinations if your delusions are so serious that they impair your thinking to the extent that you believe an airplane never hit the Pentagon and Barbara Olson is running around Western Europe engaging in counterfeit and sneaking into the Vatican. Please crawl back into your think tank and don't come out until you can think of something that DOESN'T sound like a headline for the Weekly World News. Writing isn't your forte.

If "Thousands witnessed the jet going into the Pentagon"...` 26.Nov.2006 06:29

Mrs Patrick Campbell

then where are the videos of it? There were a few video security cameras(for one, there were some installed at a nearby gas station) focused right on the sight but we have never seen anything showing a plane going into the building. Just something showing smoke.
