John O’Neill started his new job as head of security for the World Trade Centers on September 10, 2001, the day before he was killed there. He was a former Deputy Director of the FBI and considered by many the foremost expert on Osama bin Laden. He was also the whistleblower on secret document W199eye – a directive from President GW Bush directing the FBI and intelligence agencies to cease investigations into the bin Laden family and al Qaeda.
Just two weeks prior to the attack, O’Neill had left his job with the FBI. O’Neill had quit because he believed that the Bush administration had stymied the intelligence agency’s investigations on terrorism. O’Neill charged that it had done so even as it bargained with the Taliban on handing over of Osama bin Laden in exchange for political recognition and economic aid. In the ultimate irony, O’Neill had gone public with these charges at the same time that he was leaving the FBI to become the head of security at the World Trade Center.
“The main obstacles to investigate Islamic terrorism were US oil corporate interests, and the role played by Saudi Arabia in it,” O’Neill reportedly told the authors of an explosive new book, Hidden Truth, by intelligence analysts Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquie. Brisard met O’Neill several times last summer and reports that O’Neill complained bitterly that the US State Department – and behind it the oil lobby who make up President Bush’s entourage – blocked attempts to prove bin Laden’s guilt.
Released just last November, Brisard and Dasquie’s book was mostly ignored by the US media. But it is beginning to cause a stir. Just two days ago, the story aired for the first time on US television when CNN’s Paula Zahn interviewed former Iraqi chief U.N. weapons inspector Richard Bulter. “The most explosive charge, Paula, is that the Bush administration — the present one, just shortly after assuming office slowed down FBI investigations of al Qaeda and terrorism in Afghanistan in order to do a deal with the Taliban on oil — an oil pipeline across Afghanistan” Butler said.
Maybe part of the reason Paula left Faux news is because she knew her right wing bosses would never let her run a story like this one. But what Paula didn’t explore, or even mention, was that O’Neill was not alive to confirm or refute those charges. What CNN didn’t find interesting was the fact that John P. O’Neill was in his 34th-floor office in the World Trade Tower when the first of two hijacked planes hit the building, or that he phoned a son and a friend to reassure them he was fine.
What the US media have apparently found less interesting than the death of Clinton’s dog is that we have only the government’s version of what happened next. 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.
Can you imagine how the events following 9/11 would have differed had John P. O’Neill, former Deputy Director of the FBI and head of security at the World Trade Tower at the time of the attacks, had been alive to tell this story?
If, as many people believe, 9/11 was a false-flag operation designed to implicate Osama bin Laden (see this article on the pre-9/11 bin Laden propaganda), then a legend, or a cover story, involving bin Laden would have to be fabricated, disseminated very quickly, and swallowed whole — not just by the American people but by the people of the world. And John O’Neill was a most — if not the most — formidable obstacle in the way of such a cover story.He was not only the world’s leading expert on bin Laden, but he was also regarded as a “loose cannon”, because of his record of working outside normal channels when normal channels were “blocked”. He knew FBI investigations into bin Laden and al-Q’aeda had been shut down in the summer of 2001 and it is extremely unlikely that he would have remained quiet about it. He also knew whether or not Osama bin Laden was capable of inflicting the amount of damage the US suffered on 9/11.
In other words, if the conspirators were hoping to spread a Big Lie about Osama bin Laden, they would have had a short list of things they absolutely had to do. Surely, one of the items on that list would be to silence John O’Neill. And what better way than to entomb him at the scene of the crime?
Strangely, perhaps, John O’Neill was lured to the WTC position by his old friend Jerome Hauer, Managing Director of Kroll, the security company in charge of the entire WTC complex on 9/11. On September 11, 2001, Jerome Hauer was a national security adviser with the National Institute of Health, a managing director with Kroll Associates, and a guest on national television. His background in counter-terror and his specialized knowledge of biological warfare served him well on that day. Perhaps a little too well. As national security adviser with the NIH, Hauer advised the White House to begin taking an antibiotic effective against Anthrax on 9/11. Did he have foreknowledge of the false flag Anthrax attacks that happened a week after 9/11 that were meant to blame bin Laden, but were actually sent from a US government lab?
Which employer — if any — was Jerome Hauer representing on the morning of September 11, 2001, when he slipped the seeds of the official conspiracy theory to Dan Rather and his viewers on CBS?
One segment documents the following exchange, from the morning of September 11, 2001:
Dan Rather: Based on what you know, and I recognize we’re dealing with so few facts, is it possible that just a plane crash could have collapsed these buildings, or would it have required the, sort of, prior positioning of other explosives in the, uh, in the buildings? I mean, what do you think?
Jerome Hauer: No, I, uh, my sense is just the velocity of the plane and the fact that you have a plane filled with fuel hitting that building, uh, that burned, uh, the velocity of that plane, uh, certainly, uh, uh, had an impact on the structure itself, and then the fact that it burned and you had that intense heat, uh, probably weakened the structure as well, uh, and I think it, uh, was, uh, simply the, uh, the planes hitting the buildings, and, and causing the collapse.
Jerome Hauer is certainly a remarkable guest, isn’t he? On the very morning of the event, he had the whole thing figured out. The collapse was simply due to the planes hitting the buildings, just the velocity of the plane and of course the fact that it was filled with fuel, and the fact that it burned and of course you had that intense heat which must have weakened the structure … It’s incredible, of course. It’s also half of the official story!
But let’s get back to the attack itself. Who did it? Who could have done it? If you were watching CBS that morning, you would have heard this:
Dan Rather: What perspective can you give us? I mean, there have been these repeated reports that, well, yes, Osama Bin Laden, but some think he’s been over-emphasized as, as responsible for these kinds of events. I know many intelligence, uh, people at very high levels who say, listen, you can’t have these kinds of attacks without having some state, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, somebody involved. Put that into perspective for us.
Jerome Hauer: Yeah, well I’m not sure I agree that, umm, this is necessarily state-sponsored. Umm, it, as I mentioned earlier, certainly has, umm, the, uh, fingerprints of somebody like Bin Laden.
And that, of course, is the other half of the official story.
How did Dan Rather happen to have a guest with him on the morning of 9/11 who knew the entire official story before it became public knowledge? Jerome Hauer was introduced to CBS’s viewers as a former director of NYC’s OEM. Strangely, perhaps, CBS News audiences were not told he was also a managing director of the security company responsible for the twin towers. And of course no one was told to start taking Cipro — except the White House.
Planting The Seeds
The twin disintegrations of the twin towers certainly looked like explosives-driven demolitions to many reporters who covered covered them live — but Jerome Hauer assured Dan Rather and his viewers that it was just caused by the intense heat that weakened the structure! The attack of 9/11 was of such scope and ferocity that it was virtually unimaginable — except to the people who planned it — just a day before it happened. But when it did happen, Jerome Hauer was able to contradict the intelligence experts and claim it bore the fingerprints of somebody like Bin Laden!
Jerome Hauer knew the entire official story before it became public knowledge. Jerome Hauer helped the official story become public knowledge!
Watering The Seeds
In November of 2001, Jerome Hauer participated in the Council on Foreign Relations’ “Independent Task Force on America’s Response to Terrorism”, along with Henry A. Kissinger and others; their task included the following items:
- Release a White Paper explaining our goals and rationale for the war in Afghanistan, and outlining the evidence that the al-Qa’eda network was responsible for the 9/11 attacks
- Disseminate stories of particular victims to convey the range of people killed in the 9/11 attacks — stress range of religions, races, income levels, etc.
- Counteract [the] myth that Mossad was behind the attacks by showing Jews killed, etc.
- Routinely monitor the regional press in real time to enable prompt responses
They did a fine job. We never hear any mention of Israel and 9/11 in the same sentence. And thanks to the ADL, B’Rin B’Raith and AIPAC, the spectre of anti-Semitism accusations and expert propaganda is a tight nut to unscrew.
A Seattle woman who was a close informant of former FBI agent and Al Qaeda hunter John O’Neill during the crucial months prior to the 9/11, said they both provided vital information in an attempt to stop the attack but were blocked by officials in the New York and Washington bureaus every step of the way.The informant’s earth shattering revelations and hard evidence, including names, dates, locations, motives and sordid dealings of known terrorists, may once and for end all speculation that the FBI overtly tried to thwart O’Neill’s investigation, as well as even show authorities worked closely, assisting known terrorists in bringing about 9/11 as well as other previous terrorist attacks.
