911blogger: TREASON IN THE WHITE HOUSE
Treason in the White House: History Will Expose You
Why did Bush stop The Senate And Congressional Intelligence joint inquiry investigators from interviewing an Informant who was the landlord of some alleged hijackers who the CIA "accidentally" let into the country?
This isn't a "conspiracy theory" it's a fact. From the report by THE HOUSE PERMANENT SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE AND THE SENATE SELECT COMMITTEE ON INTELLIGENCE...
"The Administration has to date objected to the Inquiry’s efforts to interview the informant in order to attempt to resolve those inconsistencies. The Administration also would not agree to allow the FBI to serve a Committee subpoena and deposition notice on the informant. Instead, written interrogatories from the Joint Inquiry were, at the suggestion of the FBI, provided to the informant. Through an attorney, the informant has declined to respond to those interrogatories and has indicated that, if subpoenaed, the informant would request a grant of immunity prior to testifying."
Because our fearless king is a traitor who is protecting Saudi Arabia.
How did those alleged hijackers end up with a U.S. Intelligence asset as a landlord? They were taken there by a Saudi Arabian Intelligence agent. Named Omar al-Bayoumi. BTW, the FBI had already done an investigation on this guy back in the late 90's because of his suspicious activities. Bush doesn't want you to see this stuff, doesn't want you to know who really funds Al Qaeda, because it blows the whole myth. You see, our King is a traitor who is protecting this other country, and their agents who have ties to "al Qaeda".
From senate intelligence investigation:
"In June 2002 testimony before the Joint Inquiry, DCI Tenet said:
"Once in the U.S., the hijackers were careful, with the exception of minor traffic violations, to avoid drawing law enforcement attention and even general notice that might identify them as extremists. They dressed in Western clothes, most shaved their beards before entering the U.S., and they largely avoided mosques."
"FBI Director Mueller appeared to concur:
"While here, the hijackers effectively operated without suspicion, triggering nothing that would have alerted law enforcement and doing nothing that exposed them to domestic coverage. As far as we know, they contacted no known terrorist sympathizers in the United States."
This is what is known as getting caught in a lie.....
"However, the Joint Inquiry review of documents and interviews of FBI personnel indicate that the six hijackers who served as the leaders and facilitators of the September 11 attacks were not isolated in the United States, but instead maintained a number of contacts in the United States before September 11."
"In a written response The FBI acknowledged that:
. . . the hijackers ‘may have had contact’ with subjects of prior or current counterterrorism investigations in San Diego. Such contact occurred principally through the hijackers’ attendance of religious services at various mosques in San Diego, some frequented by subjects of FBI counterterrorism investigations."
"At a Joint Inquiry hearing in October 2002, FBI Director Mueller commented on his earlier testimony about the hijackers conduct in the United States:
"When I say that the hijackers did “nothing that exposed them to domestic coverage” . . . and when I say that the hijackers “contacted no known terrorist sympathizers in the United States,” I meant in the context of the hijackers not
contacting — before 9/11 — terrorist sympathizers on whom we had technical or other form of coverage. The point being that had they done so, we might have been able to identify them as a result of that coverage. When making that statement, I did not have in mind what may have been known to the Bureau about persons such as al-Bayoumi a Saudi living in California, who may have assisted hijackers, al-Hazmi and al-Midhar. I can see, however, how the statement could be subject to an alternate interpretation that even as of June 18 we had uncovered no persons who had had contact with the hijackers and were “terrorist sympathizers.” I can assure the Committee that I had no intent to mislead."
More from the Joint Senate Intelligence report......
"A person the FBI interviewed after September 11 says that he was with al-Bayoumi when the latter met al- Hazmi and al-Mihdhar. This person says that al-Bayoumi invited him to travel to Los Angeles, explaining that he had business at the Saudi Consulate. When they arrived at the consulate, al- Bayoumi met with someone behind closed doors. Al-Bayoumi and the person with whom he had traveled to Los Angeles went to a restaurant, where they met al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar."
And who was this person al-Bayoumi met at the Saudi Consulate before picking up the alleged hijackers? It is well documented that it was Fahad al Thumairy. Investigators asked al Thumairy about his connection with these hijackers and al-Bayoumi. The Saudi Government refused to let investigators interview him alone. Saudi Gov officials were always present. Thumairy denied knowing any of these people, and was shocked when investigators informed him they had his telephone records and the phone records of Bayoumi which proved they were in contact with each other quite often. He thought he had "diplomatic imunity" from that stuff. He had nothing more to say. This is documented in Philip Shenons' book, and the FOIA documents at intelwire.
Page 309 of Shenons book describes how investigators found in classified FBI reports details of an interrogation of an Arabic speaking taxi driver from Los Angelos who was arrested on immigration charges a few months after 9/11. The driver, Qualid Benonmrare, had done chauffeur work for the Saudi consulate, and Thumairy. He was shown a series of photographs of young arab men and asked if he recognized any of them. He shocked the investigators by immediatly picking out the two hijackers Hazmi and Mihdhar, when he realized what he's done he nervously backtracked and denied knowing the pair. He was asked about his ties to Thumairy and he said that the Saudi diplomat introduced him before 9/11 to "two Saudis", who had just arrived in the U.S. and needed help. The investigators believed these were the two terrorists Thumairy claimed to have never met.
Bayoumi admitted knowing Thumairy but only as an Iman at the Mosque. However Thumairy denied knowing both Bayoumi and the two alleged hijackers. Thumairy is a lier.
When al Thumairy tried to re enter the U.S. in 2003 this happend...
"A Saudi consular official was held for two days and expelled from the United States this week because he was suspected of having links with terrorist organizations, the Los Angeles Times reported on Saturday.
"Fahad al Thumairy, 31, arrived on a flight from Frankfurt on Tuesday at Los Angeles International Airport to learn that his visa had been revoked in March, the newspaper reported."
"A State Department spokeswoman declined to comment on the matter on Saturday, and neither the Department of Homeland Security nor the King Fahd Mosque could be reached for comment. The Department of Justice and the Saudi consulate did not immediately return calls seeking comment."
"In May 2003, the State Department refused reentry to the chief imam of the King Fahd Mosque in Culver City, Fahad al Thumairy, who also was a Saudi diplomat at the consulate in Los Angeles. The Sept. 11 commission report later said the State Department had determined "he might be connected with terrorist activity."
"The report also said that two of the Sept. 11 hijackers, Nawaf Alhazmi and Khalid Almihdhar, "spent time at the King Fahd mosque and made some acquaintances there." Al Thumairy, who reportedly led an "extremist faction" at the mosque, denied knowing the two hijackers. While his denial was "somewhat suspect," the report said there was no evidence connecting him to the hijackers."
Back to the Senate Intelligence report.....
"According to several FBI agents, the meeting at the restaurant may not have been accidental. In fact, the FBI’s written response to the Joint Inquiry refers to the restaurant encounter as a “somewhat suspicious meeting with the hijackers.” According to another person the FBI interviewed after September 11, al-Bayoumi said before his trip that he was going to Los Angeles to pick up visitors."
"When al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar moved to San Diego, al-Bayoumi gave them considerable assistance."
But al-Bayoumi claims he's just a nice guy that enjoys helping strangers, and attends schools that have no records of him.....in other words he's also a lier.
"Newsweek said Mr al-Bayoumi was believed by some local Muslims to be working for Saudi intelligence. Mr al-Bayoumi claimed to be studying at San Diego university but it has no records of him.
"On September 11, Mr al-Bayoumi was studying for a business degree at Aston University, Birmingham. British police questioned him, but he reportedly claimed that he met al-Hazmi and al-Midhar by accident and was simply shown Arab hospitality."
"Congress is preparing a report into the September 11 investigation criticising the administration for failing to pursue leads that point to the Saudi establishment. The FBI is also frustrated that its inquiry into the Saudi role was stymied for political reasons."
Back to the Senate Intelligence report....
"Since September 11, the FBI has learned that al-Bayoumi has connections to terrorist elements. He has been tied to an imam abroad who has connections to al-Qa’ida. Further, the FBI’s Executive Assistant Director for Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence described in testimony before the Joint Inquiry FBI contacts “with the [ redacted] government about collection on a person named [redacted ], who has ties to al-Qa’ida, who has ties to al-Bayoumi.”
Did you catch that? The FBI Informant that Bush is protecting and that we taxpayers rewarded with $100,000 is friends with terrorists according to the Senate Intelligence committee.
"Despite the fact that he was a student, al-Bayoumi had access to seemingly unlimited funding from Saudi Arabia. For example, an FBI source identified al-Bayoumi as the person who delivered $400,000 from Saudi Arabia for the Kurdish mosque in San Diego. One of the FBI’s best sources in San Diego informed the FBI that he thought that al-Bayoumi must be an intelligence officer for Saudi Arabia or another foreign power."
So why is Bush protecting Saudi Arabia? Because he has to. He can't allow the Intelligence informant to be interviewed. If he's not interviewed then it was just a "coincidence" that these monitored terrorists who were "accidentally" let into the country were living with an intelligence asset. Keep the myth that they were "al Qaeda" bad guys funded by the evil "al qaeda" leader Bin Laden. We had no intelligence on them once they were accidently let into the country. That is the official story you know, it's all a big "coincidence".
He can't let the informant be interviewed if he is also a CIA asset, because then the whole myth of "these guys were accidentally let into the country and we couldn't find them" is exposed for the lie that it is. All the alleged hijackers were heavily monitored and tracked more than a year before 9/11.
There is also the possibility this informant is a Saudi Intelligence asset, or both. He certainly knew and worked with the Saudi intelligence asset al-Bayoumi.
He is a living symbol of the CIA and Saudi Intelligence and how they work together. The USSR superpower was brought down by the CIA/Saudi Intelligence network. It's a proven fact they work together.
And who is the biggest Saudi Intelligent asset of them all? Bin Laden. The Bin Laden family is extremely wealthy and powerfull. However, they owe everything they have, everything, to the Saudi Royal family. They would be nothing without the Saudi Royal family. They are also friends of the Bush family.
And you are supposed to believe O. Bin laden wants to overthrow the royal family!
It's a well known fact that Bin Laden is a Saudi Intelligence asset. But you are supposed to believe that "well, yea, he was during the Afghan war against the Soviets, but then he turned on them." Really? When exactly did he turn? Because, I'm guessing never, which might explain this from the Senate Intelligence report......
"According to a U. S. Government official, it was clear from about 1996 that the Saudi Government would not cooperate with the United States on matters relating to Usama Bin Ladin[redacted redacted redacted] reemphasized the lack of Saudi cooperation and stated that there was little prospect of future cooperation regarding Bin Ladin. [redacted] told the Joint Inquiry that he believed the U.S. Government’s hope of eventually obtaining Saudi cooperation was unrealistic because Saudi assistance to the U.S. Government on this matter is contrary to Saudi national interests.
You see these Saudis with "Links to Al Qaeda" are not the only ones that are documented as being protected by Lord Bush, there is also the leader of the group of Saudis Bush let fly out of the Country just after 9/11, Prince Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz, who was later fingered by inmates in Guantanamo as their boss.
"Abu Zubaydah has made startling revelations about secret connections linking Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Osama bin Laden. CIA men flew Zubaydah to an Afghan complex fitted out as a fake Saudi jail chamber, where "two Arab-Americans, now with Special Forces," pretending to be Saudi inquisitors, used drugs and threats to scare him into more confessions."
"Yet when Zubaydah was confronted by the false Saudis, writes Posner, "his reaction was not fear, but utter relief." Happy to see them, he reeled off telephone numbers for a senior member of the royal family who would, said Zubaydah, "tell you what to do."The man at the other end would be Prince Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz, a Westernized nephew of King Fahd and a publisher better known as a racehorse owner. His horse War Emblem won the Kentucky Derby in 2002. To the amazement of the U.S., the numbers proved valid. When the fake inquisitors accused Zubaydah of lying, he responded with a 10-minute monologue laying out the Saudi-Pakistani-Osama triangle, according to the book."
"Zubaydah, writes Posner, said the Saudi connection ran through Prince Turki al-Faisal bin Abdul Aziz, the kingdoms longtime intelligence chief. Zubaydah said bin Laden "personally" told him of a 1991 meeting at which Turki agreed to let bin Laden leave Saudi Arabia and to provide him with secret funds as long as al-Qaeda refrained from promoting jihad in the kingdom. The Pakistani contact, high - ranking air force officer Mushaf Ali Mir, entered the equation, Zubaydah said, at a 1996 meeting in Pakistan also attended by Zubaydah. Bin Laden struck a deal with Mir, then in the military but tied closely to Islamists in Pakistans Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), to get protection, arms and supplies for al-Qaeda. Zubaydah told interrogators bin Laden said the arrangement was "blessed by the Saudis," according to Posner."
"Zubaydah said he attended a third meeting in Kandahar in 1998 with Turki, senior ISI agents and Taliban officials. There Turki promised, writes Posner, that "more Saudi aid would flow to the Taliban, and the Saudis would never ask for bin Ladens extradition, so long as al-Qaeda kept its long-standing promise to direct fundamentalism away from the kingdom."
On July 22, 2002, Prince Ahmed was felled by a heart attack at age 43
The others Zubaydah named also quickly died. Remember the interrogation of Zubaydah was videotaped.
According to this declassified FBI document as you can see on page 11/224 Prince Ahmed bin Salman bin Abdul Aziz, who Zubaydah named as his boss and even gave his phone number, was the leader of the Saudis that were allowed to leave the country immediatly after the attacks of 9/11.
Having it on videotape that you let the boss of the "Al Qaeda" inmates leave the country immediatly after 9/11 is not something you want hanging around for all history if you're the President is it?
The 9/11 commission asked the CIA about this. And what did the CIA do? They destroyed the tape and didn't respond. And you were told the tapes were destroyed because they showed torture. Here is the memo Phillip Zelikow made in order to cover his own ass which proves this.
Who is Al Qaeda? And who Fiances them?
It's a terrorist group, run by Intelligence agencies. Always has been.
Who financed Ramzi Yousef? Bin Ladens' brother in law Mohammed Jamal Khalifa.
"Khalifa started the Benevolence International Corporation in the Philippines in 1988, apparently to recruit people for the war against the Soviets. In 1992, that group folded visible operations while another group known as the Islamic Benevolence Committee renamed itself to Benevolence International Foundation. The remains of the Benevolence International Corporation have been accused of assisting the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the Operation Bojinka plot that was foiled in 1995. "
"U.S. and Filipino investigators accused Khalifa of once being an important lieutenant of Osama bin Laden's Al-Qaeda organization, which was based in Sudan at the time he allegedly was involved in terrorist plots."
"Khalifa was arrested in Saudi Arabia shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, but was released without charges being filed."
But when you get exposed you get dead. Like the folks Zubaydah fingered.
"On January 31, 2007, Khalifa was murdered by 25 to 30 armed men while visiting a gemstone mine he owned in Sakamilko, near the town of Sakaraha in southern Madagascar. He had recently called in local police to evict people who had been working the gem mine in his absence. Though all his belongings had been stolen there is some conjecture that the death was politically motivated."
"The Benevolence International Foundation was a purported nonprofit charitable trust based in Saudi Arabia. It was a front for al-Qaeda and is now banned worldwide by the United Nations Security Council Committee . It had already been banned by the US Department of the Treasury. It was founded by Adel bin Abdul-Jalil Batterjee of Jeddah, who is now personally embargoed by the UN and by the US."
"Benevolence International Corporation is said to have been started in 1988 by Mohammed Jamal Khalifa of Jeddah, the brother in law of Osama bin Laden. Meanwhile, another group known as the Islamic Benevolence Committee was founded in both Jeddah and Peshawar, Pakistan by Batterjee. The group was a "charity" that openly supported fighters against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan."
And who was paying Mr al-Bayoumi? Dallah Al-Baraka.
"Al-Bayoumi was assistant to the Director of Finance for Dallah Avco, a DBG company that works with the Saudi aviation authority. The Wall Street Journal has reported that the United States believes the Dallah al-Baraka Bank, another DBG company, was also used by al-Qaeda."
"The Feds discovered that al-Bayoumi had once claimed to be an employee of Dallah Avco, a Saudi aviation-services company suspected of having ties to Al Qaeda. The firm's owner, Saudi billionaire Saleh Abdullah Kamel, has denied the accusation."
"Dallah Al-Baraka, is a Saudi Conglomerate founded and owned by Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel In 1975, Dallah Avco was formed to specialize in the construction, operation and maintenance of airport based projects. Its continued success in winning several contracts with the Saudi Ministry of Defense and Aviation, catapulted the group to grow and diversify extensively."
"Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel is a Saudi businessman, chairman and founder of the Dallah al Baraka Group (DBG). He is of also the chairman of the General Council for Islamic Banks. He is estimated to be worth about $2.6 billion. Most of Kamel's business work focus on coded TV channels, trade and civil services."
Sheikh Saleh Abdullah Kamel also helps fund the Saudi Intelligence run group we call today "al Qaeda".
"The "Golden Chain" is a list of purported sponsors of al Qaeda that was seized in March of 2002 raid by Bosnian police authorities of the premises of the Benevolence International Foundation in Sarajevo."
"Adel bin Abdul-Jalil Batterjee is a noted Saudi Arabian businessman and philanthropist, most widely known as the incorporator of the U.S., Canadian, and Saudi Arabian branches of the purported terrorist funding conduit Benevolence International Foundation. Batterjee is free in Saudi Arabia, but is under a worldwide travel ban, financial embargo, and weapons embargo by the UN Committee and a financial embargo the US Department of the Treasury."
"As of 2002 Batterjee was head of the Al Shamal Islamic Bank in Sudan and was one of its largest shareholders. According to a 1996 U.S. State Department factsheet the bank was capitalized with $50 million by Osama bin Laden and other National Islamic Front members. Al-Qaeda members who were funded via this bank included Jamal al-Fadl and Wadih el-Hage."
Are you starting to see how "Al qaeda" is funded and who funds them? Here is someone else who funds them and this will be in the Senate Intelligence report in 30 years when the 28 pages Bush demanded be redacted finally see the light of day......
“About two months after al-Bayoumi began aiding Alhazmi and Almihdhar, NEWSWEEK has learned, al-Bayoumi's wife began receiving regular stipends, often monthly and usually around $2,000, totaling tens of thousands of dollars. The money came in the form of cashier's checks, purchased from Washington's Riggs Bank by Princess Haifa bint Faisal, the daughter of the late King Faisal and wife of Prince Bandar, the Saudi envoy who is a prominent Washington figure and personal friend of the Bush family. The checks were sent to a woman named Majeda Ibrahin Dweikat, who in turn signed over many of them to al-Bayoumi's wife."
"According to then-Sen. Bob Graham (D-FL), who served as a co-chair of the 9/11 Congressional inquiry that preceded the 9/11 Commission, during the period of Alhazmi and Almihdhar’s arrival in the US, Bayoumi had an “unusually large number of telephone calls with Saudi government officials in both Los Angeles and Washington.”
Princess Haifa bint Faisal also happens to be the sister of the head of Saudi Intelligence at the time.
The 9/11 commission was a coverup. And this is just one of the coverup assignments it had. The 9/11 Commission report said there was no Saudi Arabian assistance to the hijackers and had nothing to do with 9/11.
So you might be asking, why would Saudi Arabia want to attack the U.S.? Well, they probably wouldn't, but an attack in the U.S. can only be stopped by the U.S. and if the people running the Government (PNAC) want an attack in order to carry out their imperialist objectives they have a "great" opportunity. Might even want to get some anthrax cooked up too, in order to help the case for war against Iraq. Since they know Iraq isn't involved in this upcoming "event".
Al Qaeda is a terrorist group run and financed by Intelligence agencies. Does that mean there are not crazy "terrorists"? Yes there is. And Saudi Arabia and the U.S. would love you to join "Al Qaeda" if you fit that description. After all, what's the point of a Military Industrial Complex if you can't use it?
