9.11 investigation | government

Israeli Mossad Held Keys To NSA, DoD, NORAD, FAA Military Computer Networks on 9-11

In the wake of 9/11, during the Citizens' Commission hearings in New York, Indira Singh, a consultant who had worked on a Defense Advanced Research Project, pointed to Ptech and MITRE Corp. being involved in computer "interoperability issues" between the FAA and NORAD. At this time Ptech's ties to Arabs was the focus, when it looks like the Israelis should have been the prime suspect from day one: they run the whole U.S. "interoperability" networks for NORAD, FAA, and the DoD.

And two of the main guys are Israeli Moles: who are these Israeli Yorans? High up in Bush's DHS, though back and forth between Mossad cut out encryption companies, and U.S. governmental projects.

AFP inquired with the NSA about its use of Israeli-made security software for classified communications projects and asked why such outsourcing was not seen as a national security threat. Why is "America's cryptologic organization" using Israeli encryption codes? NSA spokesman Ken White said, er, that the agency is "researching" the matter....we'll get back to you, sometime, maybe,....
Israelis Hold Keys To
NSA/US Military
Computer Networks
Critical, Crucial US Government And Military Computer
Networks Still Using Israeli 'Security' Software
By Christopher Bollyn
American Free Press
6-16-2006

The most critical computer and communication networks used by the U.S. government and military are secured by encryption software written by an Israeli "code breaker" tied to an Israeli state-run scientific institution.

The National Security Agency (NSA), the U.S. intelligence agency with the mandate to protect government and military computer networks and provide secure communications for all branches of the U.S. government uses security software written by an Israeli code breaker whose home office is located at the Weizmann Institute in Israel.

A Bedford, Massachusetts-based company called RSA Security, Inc. issued a press release on March 28, 2006, which revealed that the NSA would be using its security software:

"U.S. Department of Defense Agency Selects RSA Security Encryption Software" was the headline of the company's press release which announced that the National Security Agency had selected its encryption software to be used in the agency's "classified communications project."

RSA stands for the names of the founders of the company: Ronald L. Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard M. Adleman. Adi Shamir, the lead theoretician, is an Israeli citizen and a professor at the Weizmann Institute, a scientific institution tied to the Israeli defense establishment.

"My main area of research is cryptography making and breaking codes," Shamir's webpage at the Weizmann Institute says. "It is motivated by the explosive growth of computer networks and wireless communication. Without cryptographic protection, confidential information can be exposed to eavesdroppers, modified by hackers, or forged by criminals."

The NSA/Central Security Service defines itself as America's cryptologic organization, which "coordinates, directs, and performs highly specialized activities to protect U.S. government information systems and produce foreign signals intelligence information."

The fact that the federal intelligence agency responsible for protecting the most critical computer systems and communications networks used by all branches of the U.S. government and military is using Israeli-made encryption software should come as no surprise. The RSA press release is just the icing on the cake; the keys to the most critical computer networks in the United States have long been held in Israeli hands.

AFP inquired with the NSA about its use of Israeli-made security software for classified communications projects and asked why such outsourcing was not seen as a national security threat. Why is "America's cryptologic organization" using Israeli encryption codes?

NSA spokesman Ken White said that the agency is "researching" the matter and would respond in the coming week.

American Free Press has previously revealed that scores of "security software" companies spawned and funded by the Mossad, the Israeli military intelligence agency have proliferated in the United States. The "security" software products of many of these usually short-lived Israeli-run companies have been integrated into the computer products which are provided to the U.S. government by leading suppliers such as Unisys.

Unisys integrated Israeli security software, provided by the Israel-based Check Point Software Technologies and Eurekify, into its own software, so that Israeli software, written by Mossad-linked companies, now "secures" the most sensitive computers in the U.S. government and commercial sector.

The Mossad-spawned computer security firms typically have a main office based in the U.S. while their research and development is done in Israel. The Mossad start-up firms usually have short lives before they are acquired for exaggerated sums of money by a larger company, enriching their Israeli owners in the process and integrating the Israeli directors and their Mossad-produced software into the parent company.

RSA, for example, an older security software company, acquired an Israeli-run security software company, named Cyota, at the end of 2005 for $145 million.

In January 2005, Cyota, "the leading provider of online security and anti-fraud solutions for financial institutions" had announced that "security expert" Amit Yoran, had joined the company's board of directors. Prior to becoming a director at Cyota, Yoran, a 34-year old Israeli, had already been the national "Cyber Czar," having served as director of the Department of Homeland Security's National Cyber Security Division.

Yoran had been appointed "Cyber Czar" at age 32 by President George W. Bush in September 2003.

Before joining DHS, Yoran had been vice president for worldwide managed security services at Symantec. Prior to that, he had been the founder, president and CEO of Riptech, Inc., an information security management and monitoring firm, which Symantec acquired in 2002 for $145 million.

Yoran and his brother Naftali Elad Yoran are graduates of the U.S. Military Academy at Westpoint. Elad graduated in 1991 and Amit in 1993. Along with their brother Dov, the Yoran brothers are key players in the security software market. Amit has also held critical positions in the U.S. government overseeing computer security for the very systems that apparently failed on 9/11.

Before founding Riptech in 1998, Yoran directed the vulnerability-assessment program within the computer emergency response team at the US Department of Defense. Yoran previously served as an officer in the United States Air Force as the Director of Vulnerability Programs for the Department of Defense's Computer Emergency Response Team and in support of the Assistant Secretary of Defense's Office.

In June 2005, Yoran joined the board of directors of Guardium, Inc., another Mossad-spawned "provider of database security solutions" based in Waltham, Massachusetts.

Guardium is linked with Ptech, an apparent Mossad "cut out" computer security company linked with the 9/11 attacks.

Ptech, a computer software company in Quincy, Mass., was supposedly a small start-up company founded by a Lebanese Muslim and funded by a Saudi millionaire. Yet Ptech's clients included all the key federal governmental agencies, including the U.S. Army, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Naval Air Command, Congress, the Department of Energy, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, NATO, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Secret Service and even the White House.

The marketing manager at Ptech, Inc. when the company started in the mid-1990s, however, was not a Muslim or an Arab, but an American Jewish lawyer named Michael S. Goff who had suddenly quit his law firm for no apparent reason and joined the Arab-run start-up company.

Goff was the company's information systems manager and had single-handedly managed the company's marketing and "all procurement" of software, systems and peripherals. He also trained the employees. Goff was obviously the key person at Ptech.

In the wake of 9/11, during the Citizens' Commission hearings in New York, Indira Singh, a consultant who had worked on a Defense Advanced Research Project, pointed to Ptech and MITRE Corp. being involved in computer "interoperability issues" between the FAA and NORAD. At this time Ptech's ties to Arabs was the focus, and Goff was out of the picture.

"Ptech was with MITRE Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 9/11," Singh said. "Their specific job is to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and the Air Force in the case of an emergency. If anyone was in a position to know that the FAA that there was a window of opportunity or to insert software or to change anything it would have been Ptech along with MITRE."

The Mossad-run Guardium company is linked with Ptech through Goff Communications, the Holliston, Mass.-based public relations firm previously run by Michael S. Goff and his wife Marcia, which represents Guardium. Since being exposed in AFP in 2005, however, Michael's name no longer appears on the company website.

Although he and his brother reportedly grew up in Pound Ridge, New York during the 1970s and 1980s, the heads of the Jewish community told AFP that they had never heard of him. One said that she had conducted a survey of the Jews living in the small village of Pound Ridge in the 1970s and she would have remembered if a wealthy Israeli family named Yoran had been found.

Why did the locals in Pound Ridge NOT remember the Yorans?

Probably because they were NOT in Pound Ridge - but in Israel. The Pound Ridge address was used to give the appearance that the Yorans were Americans. I spoke with Elad and he has a distinctive Israeli accent - not what you would expect for a guy who grew up in a posh Yankee village.

So, who are the Yorans? Who are their parents and why did they come to the United States? To raise a couple high-level moles to infiltrate the most sensitive U.S. computer networks? How could they have lived for 20 years in Pound Ridge and NOT be remembered.
So what's the point 16.Jun.2006 16:27

the patriot guy

Thanks for the update, this was fun and another piece of the puzzle, but didn't we know this was a US/Mossad job from day one?

I mean, pre 9/11, I was a vaguely normal middle management career computer geek. Now I am an obsessed conspiracy theorist who can't get anybody to look at any of the evidence, ever the WTC-7 no brainer.

My prayer is that some eyes will finally open and sheople will start to see what really happened here, but my gut says that I should navigate away from this website and concentrate on keeping my job.

REJOINDER to above, and like, comments 16.Jun.2006 17:36

You know, I've noticed that especially on this Portland Indy Media website - which, by the way, long ago put me on the 911 trail, and for which I'll be forever grateful to this site - when there's a posting of really ANY of the typical, larger alternative media subjects - viz. 911, Oklahoma City bombing, Holocaust revisionists, FEMA camps, fake terrorism, you name it - that there are IMMEDIATE comments to such postings that belittle, contradict, criticize, ridicule and/or
minimize what are usually, at least in MY opinion, very valid, helpful postings.

This has happened to me when I've gotten my OWN post on this site.

So why is that? Is it the powers that be, and their paid minions, that have created all these lies, including the very NOTION of terrorism?

I swear to God there are people with security clearances sitting full-time at
computer monitors adding "patriotic" comments to postings on many sites such as this one.

(I may as well mention, that one of MY MO's is lack of any reluctance to state the obvious.)

So how about some comments?

just keep it up 16.Jun.2006 20:22

truthliness

don't be intimidated by those who are seeking to enslave the planet. these are in fact lunatics (including those who post negative comments here) who will never see their ultimate goals realized. the bilderbergers and the like are seeking to implement a one world tyranny and thus far have come an extraordinarily long way, but people are waking up in droves and the so called "NWO" will not come about without a large scale Revolution getting in its way.

be hopeful. we are stronger than they think.

We have to win them over one by one 17.Jun.2006 00:19

The thing that makes bringing people around to 911 is that they start out assuming that it is YOU who are deluded and anything you show them would be far fetched and improbable. They try to see some tiny flyspeck way out in the distant cosmos and miss the big elephant turd right in their face.

When they see the elephant turd they react with shock and revulsion. They get wierded out and disoriented. Then they get mad after realizing how they'd been played for a sucker. And then they join us and we carry on, winning over more and more every day, one by one.

more parts of the conspiracy 18.Jun.2006 14:21

indymedia is in on it too

The software that runs most of indymedia-php- is also Israeli. And Google is also in deep with the Israelis. Instant messaging and internet firewalls- more Israeli trash. Even cellphones are part of the Israeli conspiracy.
We'll have to do a lot of divesting to rid ourself of this Israeli influence
