9.11 investigation | government

Why hasn't the Federal government followed up on the health of Ground Zero workers ?

CNN spotlighted ground zero rescue workers and local residents last night, showing many are sick of respiratory diseases and dying of cancer. This article explains why the Federal government has not followed up on their health, despite rescuers were told to weak masks, and as you saw, many did not.
I think the government has not helped the 911 rescuers and the residents surrounding Ground Zero because they do not want to draw attention to the dust that is highly poisonous. They do not want further investigation because the entire attack is so full of unanswered questions. the fact that they made local workers stay silent about the events that day, official do not talk orders is highly suspect. Please read the articles below. There is much more information gathered from the internet, if you need.

More Ground Zero workers die of Cancer: WHY? Larry Silverstein admitted pulling building 7

 http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2006/01/331836.shtml

Was WTC 7 an act of ARSON and an act of Government Terrorism?
This article refutes Larry Silversteins "explanations" for his saying buildind seven was pulled. In fact did he not only prifit tremendously gaining a 1/2 billion so did the mortage holder, who made several actions in 2000 highly suspect of preknowledge of the attack:

NY Fed. Reserve, Peter Peterson, and Blackstone/TRW at WTC7 13.Jan.2006 12:14

"As a result, the new owners are not required to make any payments under their lease, but they will be able to collect on the loss of the buildings that collapsed or were otherwise destroyed and damaged in the attacks."

Ostensibly the 'owners' would additionally be the mortgage holders, right? That would be Peter Peterson's large entirely private investment vehicle Blackstone.

First in power in the Nixon admin, like so many others involved in 9-11 activities, Peter Peterson was was made Chair of the NY Fed. Reserve on Jan. 1. 2000 (the NY Fed is the only one in the 'faux federal' system of any massive monetary scale or importance).

His Blackstone corp already fully owns the military contractor TRW, does lots of black ops presumably...

In 2000, Blackstone bought up the WTC7 morgage! It made sure to take the full mortgage instead of all for multiple investors like before. It bought them all out to have the full mortgage on the building.

In 2000, Blackstone invested 25 million dollars in the Bush crime family's Carlyle Corporation, positioned to become the world's largest private military contractor after 9-11.

In 2000, Blackstone invested in Aviall, Inc., the world's largest buyer/seller network corporation of USED AVIATION PARTS.

Peterson's Blackstone has connections with Kissinger Associates...


An angle worth further investigation...




Is The Sunday Herald a reputable paper?

What are we to make of this?

Sunday Herald - 02 November 2003

Five Israelis were seen filming as jet liners ploughed into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001 ...

Were they part of a massive spy ring which shadowed the 9/11 hijackers and knew that al-Qaeda planned a devastating terrorist attack on the USA?

Neil Mackay investigates...

THERE was ruin and terror in Manhattan, but, over the Hudson River in New Jersey, a handful of men were dancing. As the World Trade Centre burned and crumpled, the five men celebrated and filmed the worst atrocity ever committed on American soil as it played out before their eyes.

Who do you think they were? Palestinians? Saudis? Iraqis, even? Al-Qaeda, surely? Wrong on all counts. They were Israelis - and at least two of them were Israeli intelligence agents, working for Mossad, the equivalent of MI6 or the CIA.

Their discovery and arrest that morning is a matter of indisputable fact.


It has always been a long-accepted agreement among allies - such as Britain and America or America and Israel - that neither country will jail a "friendly spy" nor shame the allied country for espionage. Chip Berlet, a senior analyst at Boston's Political Research Associates and an expert in intelligence, says: "It's a backdoor agreement between allies that says that if one of your spies gets caught and didn't do too much harm, he goes home. It goes on all the time. The official reason is always visa violation."

What we are left with, then, is fact sullied by innuendo. Certainly, it seems, Israel was spying within the borders of the United States and it is equally certain that the targets were Islamic extremists probably linked to September 11. But did Israel know in advance that the Twin Towers would be hit and the world plunged into a war without end; a war which would give Israel the power to strike its enemies almost without limit? That's a conspiracy theory too far, perhaps. But the unpleasant feeling that, in this age of spin and secrets, we do not know the full and unadulterated truth won't go away. Maybe we can guess, but it's for the history books to discover and decide.

9/11: did Israel sacrifice the twin towers?

On November 2nd 2003, The Sunday Herald published its investigation into the mystery surrounding the five Israelis seen filming as jet liners ploughed into the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, asking whether they were part of a massive spy ring which shadowed the 9/11 hijackers and knew that al-Qaeda planned a devastating terrorist attack on the USA.

The story exploded onto the international agenda, attracting record numbers of visitors to this website and provoking a stormy debate that raged across the world's media. To give readers a flavour of the investigation's impact, listed below is a selection from the hundreds of news organisations, weblogs and newsgroups that responded to an article that woke a world from its slumbers.

The PNAC plan, which is in the process of being implemented to the letter, called for a "New Pearl Harbor" as the essential trigger for its implementation.

The Signatories to the PNAC plan include most of those who worked within the power positions to direct the activities surrounding 9/11 and the lead up to the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.

GW's youngest brother, Marvin Bush, was the director of a casualty insurance company with coverage of the World Trade Center. That the coverage was stopped sometime before 9-11. Also Marvin Bush was a director of a firm that was involved with the security of the World Trade Center.

John O'Neill:

He was Director of Counterterrorism at the New York offices of the F.B.I. until he resigned in August 2001. One of the world's top experts on Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda, he grew to believe that "all the answers" regarding what they needed to destroy Al Qaeda lay in Saudi Arabia. However, starting in January 2001, Bush blocked all efforts by Mr. O'Neill to investigate Saudi ties to bin Laden. In the summer of 2001 O'Neill declared that the main obstacles to his investigation were U.S. oil interests. In late August, a frustrated O'Neill quit the FBI and took a position as head of security for the World Trade Center.

O'Neill became the head of Security at the World Trade Center, and about his first day of work was 9-11. He was outside one of the buildings when he phoned a son and a friend to reassure them he was fine.

O'Neill is reported to have called FBI headquarters, and then re-entered one of the towers to help others. The official story is that O'Neill was inside when the buildings collapsed.

How convenient for the Bush administration that Mr. O'Neill would not only die in the attack, but also that he would make such a call. Not only was the Bush administration's most dangerous critic forever silenced, but he also provided the administration the perfect story to explain his death.

9/11 - A New Jersey homemaker witnesses a group of young men on top of a white van celebrating while they were filming themselves with the burning WTC in the background in which they were later arrested and identified as Israeli citizens -- with some later found to be Israeli spies -- and they were found with large amounts of cash, a box cutter, multiple foreign passports, maps linking them to the blasts, and that bomb-sniffing dogs reacted as if they had detected explosives in their van

The five men -- Sivan and Paul Kurzberg, Oded Ellner, Omer Marmari and Yaron Shmuel -- were arrested eight hours after the attacks by the Bergen County, N.J., police while driving in an Urban Moving Systems van.

'A Scary Situation' Steven Gordon, the attorney for the five Israeli detainees, acknowledged that his clients' actions on Sept. 11 would easily have aroused suspicions. "You got a group of guys that are taking pictures, on top of a roof, of the World Trade Center. They're speaking in a foreign language. They got two passports on 'em. One's got a wad of cash on him, and they got box cutters. Now that's a scary situation."

While many have denied these events occurred, note these Mainstream Media accounts:

Since their arrest, plenty of speculation has swirled about the case, and what the five men were doing that morning. Eventually, The Forward, a respected Jewish newspaper in New York, reported the FBI concluded that two of the men were Israeli intelligence operatives.

Vince Cannistraro, a former chief of operations for counterterrorism with the CIA who is now a consultant for ABCNEWS, said federal authorities' interest in the case was heightened when some of the men's names were found in a search of a national intelligence database.

Israeli Intelligence Connection?

According to Cannistraro, many people in the U.S. intelligence community believed that some of the men arrested were working for Israeli intelligence. Cannistraro said there was speculation as to whether Urban Moving had been "set up or exploited for the purpose of launching an intelligence operation against radical Islamists in the area, particularly in the New Jersey-New York area."

According to ABC's 20/20, when the van belonging to the cheering Israelis was stopped by the police, the driver of the van, Sivan Kurzberg, told the officers:

"We are Israelis. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are your problem."

The police and FBI field agents became very suspicious when they found maps of the city with certain places highlighted, box cutters (the same items that the hijackers supposedly used), $4700 cash stuffed in a sock, and foreign passports. Police also told the Bergen Record that bomb sniffing dogs were brought to the van and that they reacted as if they had smelled explosives.

The FBI seized and developed their photos, one of which shows Sivan Kurzberg flicking a cigarette lighter in front of the smouldering ruins in an apparently celebratory gesture.

The Jerusalem Post later reported that a white van with a bomb was stopped as it approached the George Washington Bridge, but the ethnicity of the suspects was not revealed. Here's what the Jerusalem Post reported on September 12, 2001:

American security services overnight stopped a car bomb on the George Washington Bridge. The van, packed with explosives, was stopped on an approach ramp to the bridge. Authorities suspect the terrorists intended to blow up the main crossing between New Jersey and New York, Army Radio reported.

TCM Breaking News reported that the van was laden down with tonnes of explosives (13).

What's really intriguing is that ABC's 20/20, the New York Post, and the New Jersey Bergen Record all clearly and unambiguously reported that a white van with Israelis was intercepted on a ramp near Route 3, which leads directly to the Lincoln Tunnel.

But the Jerusalem Post, Israeli National News (Arutz Sheva), and Yediot America, all reported, just as clearly and unambiguously, that a white van with Israelis was stopped on a ramp leading to the George Washington Bridge, which is several miles north of the Lincoln Tunnel.

It appears as if there may actually have been two white vans involved, one stopped on each crossing. This would not only explain the conflicting reports as to the actual location of the arrests, but would also explain how so many credible eye-witnesses all saw celebrating "middle-easterners" in a white van in so many different locations. It also explains why the New York Post and Steve Gordon (lawyer for the 5 Israelis) originally described how three Israelis were arrested but later increased the total to five.

From there, the story gets becomes even more suspicious. The Israelis worked for a Weehawken moving company known as Urban Moving Systems. An American employee of Urban Moving Systems told the The Record of New Jersey that a majority of his co-workers were Israelis and they were joking about the attacks.

The employee, who declined to give his name said: "I was in tears. These guys were joking and that bothered me. These guys were like, "Now America knows what we go through."

A few days after the attacks, Urban Moving System's Israeli owner, Dominick Suter, dropped his business and fled the country for Israel. He was in such a hurry to flee America that some of Urban Moving System's customers were left with their furniture stranded in storage facilities.

It was later confirmed that the five detained Israelis were in fact Mossad agents. They were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released. Some of the movers had been kept in solitary confinement for 40 days.

Several of the detainees discussed their experience in America on an Israeli talk show after their return home.

Said one of the men, denying that they were laughing or happy on the morning of Sept. 11, "The fact of the matter is we are coming from a country that experiences terror daily. Our purpose was to document the event."

How did they know there would be an event to document on 9/11?

It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to connect the dots of the dancing Israeli Mossad agents

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information."

US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report.

In fact, he said, the nature of the investigation changed after the names of two of the five Israelis showed up on a CIA-FBI database of foreign intelligence operatives, he said. At that point, he said, the bureau took control of the investigation and launched a Foreign Counterintelligence Investigation, or FCI.

FBI investigations into possible links to the September 11 attacks are usually carried by the bureau's counterterrorism division, not its counterintelligence division.

"An FCI means not only that it was serious but also that it was handled at a very high level and very tightly," the former official said. That view was echoed by several former FBI officials interviewed.

According to ABCNEWS sources, Israeli and U.S. government officials worked out a deal -- and after 71 days, the five Israelis were taken out of jail, put on a plane, and deported back home.

The men all underwent at least two polygraph tests each, the lawyer added. He said one of the Israelis took the test seven times, a very unusual total according to several polygraph experts interviewed by the Forward. All failed their tests.

One survivor held up his medications before 911, 2 bottles.
He held up a cardboard poster after 911, showing over ten medications he now has to take.

Asbestos Abatement Saftey Equipment was my favorite thing to sell 21.Feb.2006 16:22

G. Samuel

The twin towers were designed on the basis of using Asbestoes and the towers were full of Asbestos!

What better way to get rid of Asbestos filled towers but to let the attacks happen. The state trucked it all away, the owners of the building even got insurance monies that we all absorbed in our current insurance rates, and they got justification to start the "New American Century", war, as laid out by Pearl and Wolfawitz.

What a nice tidy package and it only cost 2700 lives plus the rescuers now dying of "Mesothelioma"! History shows that sacrificing some of your population for what you want is sometimes worth it to those who are willing do anything to get what they want! They stopped digging for fallen fire fighters the day after Scotia banks 300m in Gold was found! Why do you think the fire fighters attacked the NYPD with their fists and had that massive fight at the gate. The search was shut down by the NYPD because now that the money was found, it was more important than any fire fighter whom might still be alive. Then again, Oil in the middle east is more improtant then the 2700+ lives still dying in the way of sick rescuers. "The need of the many out weigh the need of the few"! Spok said that.

Asbestos abatement would have been to expensive and the owners of the buildings would have had to pay Billions for the clean up and then re-insulate with another material. According to the safety regulatory bodies of all states, asbestos abatement workers must replace with new, all their saftey equipment after every coffee and lunch breaks. I loved selling Asbestos abatement products for just that reason $$$.

They knew it 911 was going to happen! How else did the 6 Israli Mossad agents know to have video camera perched at the trade towers the moring of 9-11 while witnesses saw them cheering the planes on. The NYPD eventually arrested the Israli Mossad agents as neighbors called the police.
