9/11: A U.S. DEEP STATE INSIDER SPEAKS Old school. Top clearance. Extremely discreet. Attended secret Deep State meetings on 9-11. Tired of all the lies. The following is what’s fit to print without being redacted.

Part 1 THE PHONE CALL. Up next.

“An emergency phone conference was held in the early afternoon of 9/11 based on the fact that WTC Building Number Seven was still standing. Demolitions were engineered to cause the building, as well as the others, to fall into its own footprint. I attended this call.”

Part 2 On WTC7: “No plane hit Building Number Seven.” “The CIA was brought to cover it up. The CIA set up failed asset bin Laden to blame as misdirection, then pulled the plug on Building Number Seven.” “The CIA doctored boarding tapes to show Arabs entering the planes.”

Part 3 On Mullah Omar: “Our CIA Arabists knew that if we blamed Osama, who was innocent of 9-11, Mullah Omar would not give him up in violation of the laws of Islamic hospitality. Mullah Omar requested evidence: then he would turn Osama over. Of course, we did not want that.”

Part 4 On heroin: “The Afghanistan heroin war was justified by 9-11. No one in Afghanistan was involved in 9/11. No member of Islam was involved. We invaded Afghanistan for only one purpose, which was to restart heroin production shut down by a righteous act of Mullah Omar.”

Part 5 On CIA and heroin: “CIA heroin plantations in Afghanistan funded external, clandestine operations and lined some important people’s pockets. That was common practice when the CIA ran the heroin operation in the Golden Triangle.”

ORDER IT NOW

Part 6 On MOTIVE: “It was never in the U.S. strategic interest to lay a curse on Islam in the West.” “9-11 was a kind of Gulf of Tonkin false flag operation justifying a war on Islam and the invasion of Iraq, followed by other invasions of Islamic nations.”

Part 7 Afghanistan-Iraq: “The Taliban loved us as they did not know that we lured Russia into Afghanistan. It was idiotic to think that they wanted to hurt their ally on 9-11.” “With Iraq invaded over a new falsity, the neocons created a war of hatred against Islam.”

Part 8 Who’s in charge: “The apex of the U.S. command structure is not the presidency. It’s the Deep State. I use that term even though we did not as it is commonly used.”

    Thank goodness the apex of the command structure is the Deep State, otherwise the USA would be even more misruled than it is now.

    Though, if you think 9/11 was about heroin revenue, you are lost. Heroin only matters as it pertains to trying to rot out Russia and China with drug addiction. The sole reason for 9/11 was to prevent gaz pipelines from SouthPars/NorthDome to either China or to EU which were not under US control.

    Jesus Christ, the incessant 9/11 bloviation across US media makes me want to barf. Postmodern culture loves nothing more than an anniversary, another chance to reform some Very Important memory, hopefully after a round number of years. For some reason the 9/11 slogan has changed from “never forget” to “always remember”. The power of positive thinking I guess? Hopefully the perpetrators of 9/11 will be brought to justice some time before September 2051, so we won’t have to listen to their wall to wall diamond jubilee of self congratulation and fairytale maintenance.

    The perps have been busy making us safe for 20 years and now they want to make us safer than ever, both from an invisible pandemic and from the domestic terrorists who for some reason think that the Constitution is still the law of the land. Thank “G-d” the Taliban won the Afghan war just in time for the troops to come home. Safety will of course require the abolition of Liberty, but there is a word for this, the word is progress.

    I really don’t know about this heroin trade business. Why is it needed? Why would you need to work on the heroin trade when you can just order up another container of fresh money by placing a simple phone call to get in on this continual Federal Reserve money printing business? Unless there are heroin connoisseurs in the CIA who do poppy field management as vocation.

    Well, for now, this is just another narrative based on some tweets. Thankfully it makes basic sense and does not involve magical technology from the future twenty years in the past.

    How doe the Anthrax attacks (complete with “take your Cipro” warnings prior to them even taking place) fit in?

    Here is another narrative. Nothing new, but “repeating the basics” matters:

    A newly declassified pre-9/11 report exposes Al-Qaeda ‘sleeper’ cells across US, so why was the intelligence not acted on?

    By late 1999, with clear insinuations of majo Al-Qaeda plots in the offing, the National Security Agency and CIA began monitoring an “operational cadre” consisting of, among others, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar. They attended a conference convened by the terror group in Malaysia in January 2000, and when two FBI agents assigned to the station learnt the pair had entry visas to the US, they demanded the information be passed to their headquarters.

    “We’ve got to tell the Bureau about this. These guys clearly are bad … We’ve got to tell the FBI.” And then [the CIA officer] said to me, ‘No, it’s not the FBI’s case, not the FBI’s jurisdiction’,” Mark Rossini, one of the FBI agents in question, has alleged. “If we had picked up the phone and called the Bureau, I would’ve been violating the law. I … would’ve been removed from the building that day. I would’ve had my clearances suspended, and I would be gone.”

    The CIA moreover allegedly refused to cooperate with the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Able Danger program, which was tracking potential terrorists in the US. A former member, Anthony Shaffer, alleges that Langley perceived Able Danger to be encroaching on its turf, and he was told by an Agency operative that “[we] will never give you the best information from [Alec Station] or anywhere else … because if you were successful in your effort to target Al-Qaeda, you will steal our thunder.”

    Not only that, from Peter Lance’s “Triple Cross”:

    “April 21, 2000: “Weeks after Boesen’s chart is declassified, the 2.5 terabytes of data gathered by the Able Danger operation are ordered destroyed by the Pentagon. Lt. Col Anthony Shaffer and Cong. Curt Weldon (R-PA), who later investigates the data destruction, now believe that elements in the Department of Defense may have been embarrassed at the revelation that Ali Mohamed, honorably discharged as a U.S. Army sergeant after his service at the JFK SWC on Fort Bragg,
    was also a top-tier al Qaeda spy. Between April and September 2000, three separate meetings in which Shaffer seeks to brief the FBI on the Able Danger findings are cancelled by lawyers for the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).”

    Shaffer also claims that Able Danger identified many of the individuals responsible for 9/11 prior to the attacks, including members of the “Brooklyn cell” such as Mohammed Atta – who, it was reported in the days after, was under CIA surveillance in Germany in January 2000 until he left for the US in June.

    Richard Clarke also wasn’t informed of Hazmi and Midhar’s entry to the US, despite Agency chief George Tenet calling him at the White House several times a day and meeting with him in person every other day to discuss intelligence on Al-Qaeda “in microscopic detail”. Had he been told at any point prior to 9/11, even a week before, he believes the attacks could’ve been averted – a view shared by numerous senior FBI officials.

    It could have been averted so easily that some must have wanted it to not be averted.

    As someone said about whether Israel knew: “How could they NOT have known?”

    Clarke contends this decision was made at the highest levels of the CIA, and has pointed to a far more sinister explanation than mere internecine rivalry – Langley was using them in a secret operation of some kind.

    In response to immense pressure from the still-grieving families of 9/11 victims, President Biden has moved to declassify a trove of documents related to the attacks. Whether the truth will finally emerge two decades on from that fateful day remains to be seen.

    After the event (documented by dancing Israelis), the Deep State nodes were packed into even MORE bureaucracy delivered by Bushco like a steaming pizza of goodness, namely the Hiterlian-name “Department of Homeland Security”. It’s gone even been more downhill since.

    Who would the President report to (other than God)? Or do they just keep him out of the communications loop.

    The Prez is basically the guy who reads the memos, thinks them over, selects one of them (basically greenlighting something that he has no direct influence over), then reguritates it on TV while looking serious or emotive depending on need. Without teleprompter if he’s good.

    George the Elder was a Deep Stater and had serious clout. Bush Junior, well, nah. Remember Ari Fleischer with “don’t say anything yet” message board on 9/11.

  11. @Pelayo

    It says the invasion of Afghanistan (not 9/11) was about heroin. It’s established the invasion of Afghanistan was planned prior to 9/11. As was the invasion of Iraq.

  12. “It’s the Deep State. I use that term even though we did not as it is commonly used.” So what do they call themselves? I imagine not too many people attended this phone call that you speak of so wouldn’t this person be found easily? The US government gives out top level security clearances to people and then it castrates them for the rest of their lives. Any documented proof on these assertions? It is true that the CIA loves heroin, just look at their success in Afghanistan, and no one who observed Trump’s presidency should be able to believe that the president is in charge. Why did they want to demolition WTC 7? It sounds like 9/11 truthers are being trolled. They might as well come out and do a tell all with documents since they probably outed themself.

    George W. Bush has nominated white people (it is obvious who he meant) as the next big terror threat on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. They have a new 9/11 called 1/6th so they’ll always have the local American population to terrorize for money.

    Just because you’re ill informed doesn’t make someone else a liar.

    Building 7 was the backup site for the Navy doing the investigation into the missing \$2+Trillion Donald Rumsfeld announced on national TV 9/10/2001. The Pentagon hit was exactly where the Navy team had all their primary records and all their investigators. Building 7 had to be taken out to also get rid of their backup records.

  18. @El Dato

    Slow-walked what exactly?

    The hit on the pentagon was for all the marbles. Rumsfeld let the cat out of the bag the day before and it was time for a cleanup operation. If you’re going to be brazen enough to use a missile to take out the investigators and their records, then taking out their backup site is a natural follow on.

    To me, 9/11 was always about the money. It’s ALWAYS about the money and money brings in banking and banking brings in jews. 9/11 was a coordinated cleanup operation to get rid of the asbestos liability the towers represented by turning that liability into a jewish profit via insurance. Those towers were wired for demolition as was building 7.

    That bit of clean up allowed the pentagon to continue their fraud to the present day with the total unaccounted for standing at above \$20Trillion now. I’d bet a huge portion of that money went to Israel and for the unaccountable real gov’t of the US colloquially known as the deep state.

    That missing money is paying for black ops, a mercenary force completely undiscovered waiting to take over soon to convert the soft military dictatorship the US has been since the JFK hit into a real open for everyone to see hard military dictatorship any day now. As the economy gets worse with all the currency printing and its inevitable hyperinflation, the deep state KNOWS that things are going to unravel and they are going to clamp down to formally take over obviating the theater of elections, presidents, congress, courts, etc.

    The virus, the hyperinflation, the withdrawal from Afghanistan are all part of the plan to focus on the US, at least for a time, so the military can take over and then go after China and Russia. They know the Chinese system is so efficient that they can’t compete unless they get rid of the inbuilt inefficiencies the current US gov’t represents. They will nationalize every weapons manufacturer, install a CBDC to turn all civilians into slaves to work exclusively for their goals of being more like China. Screw all that always ridiculous democracy bullshit.

    The Deep State is a Turkish term, derin devlet in the original. There’s an American equivalent of much longer standing, precisely defined and characterized. Fletcher Prouty coined the term. CIA bought up or stole the books in which he coined it.

    But here it is.

    https://www.ratical.com/ratville/JFK/ST/ST.html

    The Secret Team is CIA and its illegal domestic moles infiltrating every usable government organization. Dulles called these moles focal points.

    The deep state is CIA. That where the impunity cancer metastasizes from. Moynihan had the right idea. He submitted a bill, S.236, outlawing CIA’s two critical functions: Stasi-style blacklisting and covert operations.

    You want to hold still for more of this shit and just keep whispering “deep state?” What you’re talking about is fucking CIA. You can say it. It’s not like Frau Blucher’s name making the horses whinny. You want to stop this shit, you don’t storm CIA’s bribed and blackmailed puppet rulers in the Capitol. You raze the NHB, draw and quarter the SIS scumbags. You turn Langley into a theme park of totalitarian crime.

    Art, drugs, and weapons are the three major black markets worth hundreds of billions each year. Drug trafficking has been used for insurgencies since WWII. The Viet Minh offensives always took place during the opium harvesting season; a winter crop, it is harvested March-April. One harvest outfitted a full division. The opium from Afghanistan provides over 80 percent of the street heroin in Europe and North America; Mexican heroin barely provides for 5,000 American addicts. I was in Vietnam in 1971 and the production and sale of heroin was very sophisticated. It was sold in 1g plastic vials with a screw top. You can’t do anything like that without high-level protection.

    My grandfather was a tiny little low level numbers guy, working for Meyer Lansky. Jewish Mafia, hard as fuck. Back then there was actually a sort of camaraderie between the Italian and Jewish Mafia? Why? Because, among other things, Lansky had dirty pictures of J Edgar Hoover. The first director of the FBI, who stayed at the job for 48 years. And at least 3 Presidents I know of were scared shitless of him. He was a deranged gay crossdresser, too, who liked to get sucked off by little boy twins. One would suck, the other would read Bible verses to him at the same time. I’m not making this shit up- its no secret at all. Use wikipedia, read up on J Edgar Hoover. I double dog dare you. Everything I mentioned is there. All of it. I just summarized it. Hidden in plain sight. It turns out there was no need to hide it, because kids are so fucking stupid these days that they think this shit started in 2001. Not quite.

    ***********************************************************************************
    U.S. President Harry S Truman said that Hoover transformed the FBI into his private secret police force:

    … we want no Gestapo or secret police. The FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.[97]

    Hoover consequently amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten others, including multiple sitting presidents of the United States.
    ***********************************************************************************

    Later in life and after his death, Hoover became a controversial figure as evidence of his secretive abuses of power began to surface. He was found to have exceeded the jurisdiction of the FBI,[3] and to have used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders,[4] and to collect evidence using illegal methods.[5]

    Sexual blackmail was his forte, a technique he learned from Meyer Lansky- the Jewish Mafia Boss. He tried to have MLK Jr Killed, and Albert Einstein too. This was not necessarily because of overt racism, as much as it was because they were staunch socialists.

    ***********************************************************************************
    Hoover consequently amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten others, including multiple sitting presidents of the United States.
    ***********************************************************************************

    During the 1930s, Hoover persistently denied the existence of organized crime, despite numerous gangland shootings as Mafia groups struggled for control of the lucrative profits deriving from illegal alcohol sales during Prohibition, and later for control of prostitution, illegal drugs and other criminal enterprises.[41]

    ***********************************************************************************
    Many writers believe Hoover’s denial of the Mafia’s existence and his failure to use the full force of the FBI to investigate it were due to Mafia gangsters Meyer Lansky and Frank Costello possession of embarrassing photographs of Hoover in the company of his protégé, FBI Deputy Director Clyde Tolson.
    ***********************************************************************************

    Hoover often praised local law-enforcement officers around the country, and built up a national network of supporters and admirers in the process. One whom he often commended for particular effectiveness was the conservative sheriff of Caddo Parish, Louisiana, J. Howell Flournoy.[36]

    It is never one thing. Critical heuristic.

    9/11 was “about” some very power East Coast figures thinking that the WTC was an architectural monstrosity and long wanting to get rid of it. Was it only “about” that? No, of course not.

    Was it only about Israel bringing the US on board with their greater Israel project? If you say yes, you are not “lost” but you are missing lots.

    (It was also “about” creating a jobs program for mostly black and brown people who would then be in a position to humiliate mostly (middle class) white people on a daily basis for 20 years and counting.)

  42. JLK says:

    Was it only about Israel bringing the US on board with their greater Israel project? If you say yes, you are not “lost” but you are missing lots.

    It’s pretty obvious that the damage from the original plan was augmented to cause additional casualties, whether by wiring the buildings to implode, blocking certain exits or both.

    There are a lot of indications that the Israelis, who clearly knew of the original hijacking plan, were caught by surprise at the totality of the damage and casualties, and hence “hooked” like the Saudis because their operatives were in place dancing and taking photos, and their security companies were in change of screening the original airports. That’s not how it appears to the public, but the Israeli (and Saudi) angle can be ramped up at any time to put the squeeze on both or either of them by the Deep State.

    That’s an educated guess on my part, but I’ve been to Jewish gatherings in the ’00s where hints were made that everything is in jeopardy, it’s that way the underbelly of international politics works, and the Jewish neocons aren’t on TV every week like they used to be.

    We wouldn’t read such things in the media.

    You forget the “Maine’.
    Some people speculate a false flag was used to justify the Spanish American war.

    They play both sides… and maybe the third and fourth! “If it’s good for Jews” / Israel.

    It’s important to remember that the sabotage stunts and AMERITHRAX were integral parts of the same CIA war propaganda spectacle.

    Because now CIA is rolling out their germ warfare vaudeville show again. They tried a second time with H1N1/Pandemrix but that was a flop. Now they scaled up their vaccination racket Biothrax, with universal forced vaccination, and they’re using it to make new domestic boogiemen, ‘the unvaccinated.’

    It’s the same cheap trick over and over by the same CIA pukes. It’s not gonna stop till we drag them out of Langley and hang em.

    Why the heroin trade fields in Afghanistan??? The same way the Golden Triangle was used to fund clandestine CIA operations in Asia (and many suspect all the gold that Japan stole in Asia and was never returned – mainly to China and Korea and the Philippines – after WW2 was taken to do the same thing). The same way cocaine traffickers worked with the CIA in Central and South America.

    CIA and Secret Service were in Building 7… it was very busy

    Very large portions of building 7 were gov’t offices, city, state and federal. Hitting it got rid of lots of evidence.
