CREATED TERROR PRETEXTS FOR US POLICE STATE
February 21, 2005
Michael Chertoff, President Bush’s
nominee for the next head of the Homeland Security agency was confirmed
by a vote of the full Senate on February 15, 2005.
Chertoff is the replacement for
Tom Ridge. Bush’s first choice for head of Homeland Security, New
York’s former Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, was forced to withdraw
when serious allegations were raised about his possible improprieties.
If the facts presented in this report are seriously investigated and
properly acted upon, Michael Chertoff should be immediately removed
and face criminal charges. This could be another fiasco for Bush just
as the nomination of Bernard Kerik proved to be.
Bush and Congress certainly should
not have entrusted Chertoff with being the head of the Homeland Security
Agency. Chertoff is a grave thread to the lives, welfare and freedoms
of the American people.
Chertoff has had a rapid rise to
power as an appointee of Presidents HW and GW Bush. First, as a U.S.
attorney in New Jersey (1990-1994), then as assistant Attorney General
at the DOJ criminal division heading up the investigation of 9-11
(2001-2003), and now, most recently as a federal judge in Philadelphia
(March 2003 to present). Chertoff also helped write many of the controverisal
portions of the PATRIOT Act and other new laws that even conservative
Republicans believe are unecessary police state infringements of the
Bill of Rights and Consititutional guarantees of US citizens. Chertoff
also was consulted by the CIA about torture and renditions of terror
suspects to other countries for torture.
This report presents a study of
Michael Chertoff’s role in the 1993 WTC bombing, the OKC bombing and
the 9-11 terrorist attacks as well as Chertoff’s coverup of FBI and
DOJ foreknowledge and provocation of these attacks. The information
in the report strongly implicates Chertoff in intentionally helping
create and provoke these terrorist acts and terror funding in order
to provide a pretext for much of the controversial police state provisions
in laws which Chertoff has helped write. Chertoff’s unethical and
criminal roles and conduct revealed in this report raises grave concerns
that Chertoff, as head of Homeland Security, would further attempt
to impose a US police state and continue to use illegal, unconstitutional
and immoral tactics against the America people. The recently enacted
National ID card provisions to be finally determined and enforced
by the Homeland Security agency under Chertoff are likely to be those
of a Russian style police state as revealed in this report.
A Chicago Tribune article “Trading
Privacy (Freedom) for Security” dated April 21, 1995, two days after
the OKC Bombing, carried quotes by Admiral Studeman, the acting Director
of CIA who had been appointed by HW Bush. Studeman stated that the
OKC Bombing indicated “ the true globalization of the terrorist threat.”
In other words, Studeman tried to create the public impression that
the OKC bombing was the result of global terrorist efforts, not just
those of Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols.
The title of the article “Trading
Privacy (Freedom) for Security” quoting Admiral Studeman belied the
past and future attempts of HW Bush, GW Bush and their appointee,
Michael Chertoff, to push for loss of freedoms to fight terrorism
(PATRIOT Act flaws and FISA court violations by Ashcroft and Chertoff).
In the immediate aftermath of 9-11
former President GHW Bush publicly advocated suspension of the US
Constitution and violation of laws by the DOJ and CIA and FBI agents
inside the US to allow domestic spying on Americans. This is what
Presidents GHW Bush and GW Bush and Chertoff have had in mind all
along when they intentionally helped create the terror pretexts they
have used to illegally and immorally trade American freedoms and privacy
for a false sense of security.
1993 WTC Bombing
The FBI planted and paid Emad A.
Salem in New York and New Jersey to act as an agent provocateur, to
recruit, organize and encourage Muslims to bomb the World Trade Center
(WTC) in 1993. From March through June 1993 Mr. Salem recruited seven
Muslims from the Abu Bakr mosque in Brooklyn and the al-Salaam mosque
in Jersey City, where the Muslim cleric Sheik Abdel Rahman preached
to incite violence in his terrorist cell. Salem had known Rahman from
Egypt. Salem used the seven men to scout targets, plan tactics and
obtain chemicals and parts for bombs. Salem also worked in the operation
with a Sudanese man named Siddig Ali who was a follower of Abdel Rahman.
The plans of the Salem and Rahman group also included bombings of
United Nations headquarters in Manhattan and several other buildings,
bridges and tunnels in New York
The FBI supplied a safe house for
Salem’s group in Queens. At the WTC trial US prosecutors and attorneys
acknowledged Mr. Salem's role in organizing the safe house activities,
but told the jury "he was merely providing an opportunity" to people
who already wanted to commit crimes. According to tapes played at
the trial, the FBI and US Attorneys clearly were shown to have intentionally
used Salem as a provocateur.
Michael Chertoff was the US Attorney
appointed by HW Bush and retained by Bill Clinton for New Jersey from
1990-1994. As US Attorney for New Jersey Chertoff was deeply involved
with the 1993 WTC bombing sting operation using FBI monitoring of
the Abdel Rahman and Salem’s recruited cell members at the Al Salaam
mosque in Jersey City. The US Attorney from New York who worked with
Chertoff to prosecute the 1993 WTC bombing case was Patrick Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald is also conducting the federal grand jury investigating
the illegal outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame, the wife of Ambassador
Wilson who investigated claims of uranium acquisition by Iraq. Chertoff
and Fitzgerald were fully aware of the statements made by prosecutors
admitting that the FBI intentionally had provided the safe house for
Salem terrorist recruits.
Federal trial testimony and tapes
revealed that when Salem was asked to assemble the bomb for the WTC,
Salem went to the FBI to ask that harmless powder be used to avoid
deaths. But FBI and US Attorneys involved essentially cut Salem off
and the WTC was bombed killing people in 1993. Testimony by two of
Salem’s FBI agent handlers, Mr. Anticev, and Mrs. Nancy Floyd, confirmed
that their FBI supervisors intentionally refused the agents and Salem’s
pleas to render the WTC bomb harmless.
Three years after the 1993 WTC
bombing, Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, who prosecutors said helped mastermind
the 1993 bombing, was also convicted. Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Yousef’s
uncle and an engineer trained in the US, was named by the FBI and
DOJ as another mastermind of the 1993 WTC bombing and the 9-11 attacks.
There is evidence known to the FBI and Chertoff that also shows Khalid
Mohammed was behind the planning for the OKC bombing with Terry Nichols.
Khalid Mohammed was captured in 2003 in Pakistan. Khalid has since
been tortured by the CIA with methods reviewed by Alberto Gonzales
and Michael Chertoff at DOJ, according to published statements by
US authorities, to extract details of Khalid’s role in the 1993 WTC
and OKC bombings as well as being the architect for the 9-11 attacks.
Three of the men Salem recruited
at the Brooklyn Abu Bakr mosque were allowed by the FBI and US Attorneys
to go free and roam the streets. They were Anas and Asad Siddiqy and
Mohamed Chafti. They later were seen very close to the OKC bombing
in April 1995 with Timothy McVeigh. These three men were arrested
on the day of the OKC bombing and then released after intervention
by the FBI, DOJ and CIA. The FBI 302 reports of their arrest were
kept hidden from the public in the office of FBI OKC bomb task force
inspector Danny Defenbaugh until the reports were found and released
in early 2001. The witness to the three men in OKC being with McVeigh,
Debbie Burdick, was intimidated and coerced by FBI agent Odom to not
talk about her eyewitness account during and after OKC bombing federal
trials. FBI agent Odom was working with DOJ prosecutors in Denver
at the federal trials of McVeigh and Nichols when Odom called Burdick.
It seems that Khalid Mohammed and
Ramzi Yousef had kept in contact with the Siddiqys because a letter
from Khalid to the Siddiqys was found on Ramzi’s computer when confiscated
by the FBI and CIA in the Philippines in January 1995. Plans for the
OKC bombing and the 9-11 style attacks were also found on the same
computer shortly after Khalid and Ramzi had met in the Philippines
with the other OKC bombing participant, Terry Nichols.
Former Egyptian army sergeant Ali
Mohammed was captured and tried in 1998 for his role in the 1993 WTC
and the Tanzanian and Kenyan embassy bombings. Ali Mohammed trained
the Middle Eastern recruits of the FBI and Chertoff’s provocateu,
Emad Salem, in bomb making and planting skills for the 1993 WTC bombing.
When finally arrested Ali Mohammed was carrying training manuals on
how to build and plant bombs in public buildings. Ali Mohammed has
also written training manuals along with Mohammed Atef for bin Laden
Ali Mohammed worked for US Special
Forces, the CIA and then the FBI all while Ali was close to bin Laden
and Dr. Ayman Zawahiri and Khalid Mohammed. In fact with the knowledge
of the FBI, Ali Mohammed squired Zawahiri and Khalid around the US
and in Oklahoma City in MarchApril 1995 to survey terror targets
and set up terror underground networks.
Although convicted, the details
of Ali Mohammed’s plea bargain and detention arrangements with Attorney
General Reno are still secret. Ali Mohammed knows a great deal about
US sting operations of the FBI, the CIA and US attorneys.
Abdul Rahman Yasin was another
bomb maker in the 1993 WTC bombing who lived in Jersey City. FBI agents
picked up Yasin after the WTC bombing and had Yasin retrace for the
FBI where and how the WTC bomb had been built in New York and New
Jersey. Yasin had acid burns on his legs and jeans from the bomb making
efforts. With the full knowledge and approval of the US Attorneys
involved in the case, Yasin was set free and encouraged to leave the
US. Yasin left and went to Iraq where reporter Leslie Stahl later
interviewed Yasin in 2000. Stahl did a documentary on the story and
also interviewed US Attorneys who acknowledge that they had agreed
to release Yasin to go to Iraq.
The credit card of another FBI
informant, Melvin Lattimore, was used to purchase the bomb making
materials for bomb makers Salem, Yasin and Ramzi Yousef. This information
was disclosed during testimony of a BATF agent at a felony gun violation
trial in OKC for Lattimore in 2001. Lattimore was also seen helping
McVeigh, Iraqi agents and the three 1993 WTC suspects/informants in
OKC- the Siddiqys and Chafti-during the 1995 OKC bombing operation.
Lattimore is a Black Muslim from St. Louis. Lattimore was also 20th
9-11 hijacker Zacarias Moussaoui’s roommate in Norman OK while he
attended the Airman flight school on instructions from Khalid Mohammed.
Lattimore was also visited in Norman, OK apartments by two other 9-11
hijacker pilots, AlHazmi and AlShehhi. Lattimore, like the Siddiqys
and Chafti, is still free to roam America’s streets this very day.
Attorney Lynne Stewart had been
representing Muslim cleric Abdel Rahman for the 1993 WTC bombing until
Stewart was indicted based on DOJ wiretaps (approved by Ashcroft and
known to Chertoff) of Stewart’s conversations with Rahman. The indictments
alleged that Stewart had passed critical information to Rahman’s terrorist
supporters while Rahman was in prison.
On February 10, 2005 Lynne Stewart
was convicted of two of the original four charges against her. Stewart
and her defense attorney Michael Tigar plan to appeal and strongly
claim that Stewart did not knowingly break any laws if any and that
the wiretaps of her are an infringement of attorney-client privilege.
The Stewart appeals case will likely revolve around whether or not
the charges she was convicted of were valid and whether or not the
wire taps used in her case were in fact legal or constitutional. The
judge in her case threw out two of the more serious charges against
Stewart in 2003.
During the wiretaps of conversations
between Rahman and Lynne Stewart, the FBI and DOJ and especially Chertoff
and Ashcroft could have learned of information communicated to Lynne
Stewart by the Muslim cleric Abdel Rahman revealing possibly incriminating
details of how the FBI and DOJ knew in advance of the 1993 WTC bombing
through monitoring of Rahman’s cell with FBI informants and paid provocateurs
that included the bomb maker Salem and very possibly the Siddiqys,
Mohammed Chafti and Melvin Lattimore.
Chertoff was directly involved
in the prosecution of the Moussaoui case and sought to limit the testimony
of AlQaeda leaders, bin Alshibh and Khalid Mohammed to such an extent
that the federal judge in the case threatened to throw out the case
and moved to severely restrict if not kill the government’s continuance
of the case. Chertoff may have sought to limit the testimony of Khalid
Mohammed in the Moussaoui case in part because of torture of Khalid
ratified by DOJ attorneys but also because Khalid would be in a position
to describe facts pointing to FBI and DOJ foreknowledge information
of the 1993 WTC, the OKC and the 9-11 attacks. Chertoff handled the
appeal of the DOJ case against Moussaoui in the 4th Circuit court
of Appeals now before the Supreme Court. Chertoff with Ashcroft’s
and now Alberto Gonzales’ help may likewise be trying to stifle this
type of information from coming out in the Rahman case by the wiretapping
and indictment of Lynne Stewart.
Since Chertoff was the US attorney
in New Jersey fully aware of FBI monitoring of Rahman’s cell with
informants and at a mosque in New Jersey, it is entirely possible
that even Chertoff would not want incriminating information brought
out by Lynne Stewart in Rahman’s trial. The complete story of the
roles of Chertoff and Fitzgerald and other US Attorneys with Ali Mohammed,
Emad Salem, Yasin, the Siddiqys, Chafti, Melvin Lattimore, and others
is one that the DOJ, FBI and Chertoff, Ashcroft and now Gonzales do
not want exposed in a federal trial of Rahman represented by Lynne
Protecting Terror Financiers and
Nuclear Arms Traffickers
Dr. Magdy Elamir, a prominent Egyptian
neurologist from Jersey City, was sued by New Jersey for skimming
over $16 million from an HMO he operated.
According to a June 20, 2000 article
in “The Record” of Bergen County, New Jersey, Michael Chertoff was
the defense attorney for Dr. Magdy Elamir.
The lawsuit alleged that Dr. Elamir
"caused more than $5.7 million to be paid by wire transfers to unknown
parties where the beneficial owner of the account is unknown.”
An August 2002 Dateline NBC reported
that bin Laden funded the HMO owned by Dr Elamir and the money skimmed
from the HMO by Dr. Elamir was transferred overseas to fund bin Laden
terror activities. The Dateline story was based on intelligence documents
furnished by the chairman of the House International Relations Committee
Ben Gilman, R-New York. Dr. Elamir also funded the Jersey City Al
Salaam mosque led by Muslim cleric Abdel Rahman and his terror cell
who helped carry out the 1993 WTC bombing. Recall that while US attorney
for New Jersey from 1990 to 1994 Michael Chertoff knew of the FBI
use of Emad Salem as a provocateur associated with the Al Salaam mosque
and Abdel Rahman.
Dr. Elamir also owned MRI centers
in New Jersey including Paterson New Jersey where 7 of the known 9-11
hijackers lived. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission revoked his license.
It has been reported that Elamir personnel at the MRI centers had
unlicensed and untrained access to nuclear materials. Michael Chertoff
not only defended Dr. ElAmir against the New Jersey HMO fraud case
but Chertoff also weighed in to publicly assert that nuclear licensing
requirements may not have applied to Dr. Elamir’s MRI centers.
As the result of a federal sting
operation named Diamondback, between the fall of 1998 and June 2001,
a group of Middle Eastern men including Dr. Magdy Elamir and his brother
Mohamed Elamir were named as suspects seeking to arm Osama bin Laden
by trying to buy millions of dollars of weapons including stinger
missiles and components for nuclear bombs, nuclear bomb triggers and
weapons grade plutonium.
Dateline NBC aired two documentaries
on the Diamondback sting operation: “On the trail of arms merchants”
(August 2002) and “Stinger missile sting operation” (March 2003).
One of the men in the arms deal
sting, Raja Ghulam Abbas, a Pakistani ISI agent, was inexplicably
allowed to return to Pakistan.
Two others named in the illegal
arms deal were the US citizens Dr. Magdy Elamir and Dr. Elamir’s brother,
Mohamed Elamir, an engineer and a US citizen. A federal agent who
was conducting the Diamondback sting was told at one point by federal
authorities to not pursue with Mohamed Elamir where the arms to be
procured in the deal were going.
After Michael Chertoff took over
the DOJ criminal division in June 2001, no DOJ charges were filed
against Dr. Magdy Elamir or Mohamed Elamir for their role in trying
to buy nuclear weapons for bin Laden in New Jersey. There also was
no adequate effort made to apprehend the Pakistani ISI agent Raja
Abbas. Because the Diamondback case was handled as a criminal case
rather than a counter terrorism case, Chertoff was also in a position
to control and limit prosecution and arrests in the Diamondback case
so that Magdy Elamir and Mohamed Elamir would not be charged or go
Dr. Magdy Elamir has not been arrested
by the FBI nor charged or prosecuted by the DOJ under Chertoff even
though the intelligence documents provided by Congressmen Gilman show
that Dr. Elamir funneled millions of dollars from fraudulent HMO and
MRI companies to fund terrorist activities for cleric Abdel Rahman
in the 1993 bombing and also for bin Laden.
With no arrest, no charges filed
against and no prosecution of Mohamed Elamir or of Dr. Magdy Elamir
in the Diamondback case, Michael Chertoff was also able to avoid being
publicly implicated in court as having known the details of Mohamed’s
brother’s (Dr Magdy ElAmir) activities to skim HMO funds and transfer
the funds to bin Laden AND to the Al Salaam mosque of Abdel Rahman
used to carry out the 1993 WTC bombing during the FBI and Chertoff
directed sting operation with provocateur Emad Salem, Ali Mohammed,
Melvin Lattimore, the Siddiqys, and others.
It is ironic that Chertoff was
a defense attorney for likely terrorist Dr. Elamir just as Lynne Stewart
was a defense attorney for a terrorist advocate, Abdel Rahman, who
was caught in a sting operation mounted by Chertoff and FBI provocateurs
who were intentionally not stopped from carrying out the WTC bombing.
While Stewart has been indicted on disputed and thrown out charges
using highly questionable wiretaps known about and possibly authorized
by Chertoff, Chertoff has yet to be asked to explain his improprieties,
conflicts of interest and immorality for helping to promote the 1993
WTC bombing and for not having Chertoff’s client Dr. Elamir and his
brother Mohammed Elamir adequately investigated and charged when Chertoff
was head of the criminal division of DOJ.
Coptic Christian citizens of America
should no longer trust the FBI and Michael Chertoff at Homeland Security
for protection now that a Coptic Christian family in New Jersey connected
to the Egyptian based Al Salaam mosque has been murdered in their
own home by Muslim extremists. The Coptics from Egypt had been working
to convert Muslims to Christianity at the Al Salaam mosque of Egyptian
cleric Abdel Rahman, the same mosque that had been supported by the
Egyptian bin Laden terror backer, Dr. Magdy Elamir who was protected
by Chertoff. Some of the Christian Coptics recruiting Muslims as Christian
converts at the Al Salaam mosque also likely had been informants to
the FBI about terror activities at the mosque at the time Chertoff
and the FBI were using Emad Salem and the mosque to carry out the
1993 WTC bombing.
A similar group of Coptic Christians
from Egypt in OKC had been informants to the FBI concerning ME and
Iraqi suspects. Some of these suspects turn out to actually have been
FBI informants and provocateurs in the OKC bombing. But now that they
have seen what has happened to their Coptic brothers in New Jersey,
they now should know that they too could be murdered, especially since
it is also now known that the FBI and Chertoff betrayed the Coptics’
good efforts to help and try to provide information that could have
been used to stop and prosecute many more of those involved the 1993
WTC and 1995 OKC bombings. But this information was not used because
the FBI and DOJ Attorneys like Chertoff did not want to publicly expose
their knowledge of the use of FBI provocateurs in both attacks.
9-11 hijacker Mohamed Atta was
known to his friends and associates in Cairo and Hamburg by exactly
the same name as Dr. Elamir’s brother, namely, Mohamed El Amir. Atta’s
father, an attorney in Cairo, is also named Mohamed El Amir. Dateline
NBC reported that Magdy’s brother, Mohamed El Amir was an engineer
in Cairo, Egypt, the same place that Mohamed Atta also studied engineering.
Atta shares the same surname as
Dr. Magdy Elamir and the exact same name as Magdy’s brother Mohamed
The FBI stated in a September 27,
2001 press release that Mohamed Elamir was an alias of Atta’s.
The 9/11 Commission Report indicated
that Mohamed Elamir Atta visited at least seven other 9-11 hijackers
living in an apartment in Paterson, New Jersey, the location of one
of Dr. Magdy Elamir’s MRI centers publicly defended by Michael Chertoff:
“Within a few weeks, Hanjour, Hazmi,
and several other operatives moved to Paterson and rented a one-room
apartment. When their landlord later paid a visit, he found six men
living there-Nawaf al Hamzi, now joined by his younger brother Salem,
Hanjour, Moqed, probably Ahmed al Ghamdi, and Abdul Aziz al Omari;
Hazmi’s old friend Khalid al Mihdar would soon join them.”
9-11 Drugs, Arms Trafficking and
Attorney General Ashcroft put Chertoff
in charge of the entire DOJ investigation of the 9-11 attacks. Chertoff
may well have known of the connections of Mohamed Elamir Atta, Mohamed
Elamir, and Dr. Magdy Elamir in New Jersey with each other and the
9-11 hijackers, possibly even before the 9-11 attacks.
The New Yorker described Chertoff’s
role in the 9-11 investigation on November 5, 2001:
“Since the September 11th terrorist
attacks, Chertoff’s office has become the funnel for what is probably
the most important criminal investigation in American history, as
prosecutors and F.B.I. investigators pour in to seek the boss’s approval.
…For day-to-day decisions, Chertoff has the last word…”
Chertoff intentionally squelched
and covered up Saudi financing and money laundering, drug and arms
trafficking, and terror ties to 9-11 as identified by Ms. Indira Singh
and by FBI translator Sibel Edmonds. As part of this ongoing cover-up,
Chertoff would have known of and likely been involved in the decision
by Attorney General Ashcroft to place a rare state secrets gag order
on Sibel Edmonds.
Indira Singh was a business associate
of a Saudi financed US company, the Ptech Corporation having terror
ties to bin Laden and the 9-11 attacks. Indira Singh independently
corroborated Sibel Edmonds’ assertions of drug trafficking, money
laundering and arms trafficking ties of US officials and business
entities, Saudis and US Air Force officers to the 9-11 attacks. Singh
identified that one of these entities was the Ptech Corporation.
Indira Singh’s and Sibel Edmonds’
evidence and allegations point directly to DOJ criminal cover-up by
Ashcroft and by Michael Chertoff when Chertoff was head of the DOJ
criminal division. Although Ashcroft placed Edmonds under a DOJ gag
order, Singh gave testimony to the 9/11 Citizens' Commission, Sept
9, 2004 in New York. Singh read an open letter from Edmonds, and added,
"what I have uncovered in Ptech connects with some of the things that
she has discovered. Sibel is not allowed to disclose content but she
can ask me questions. I know some of the things that she mentioned
there connect directly to what I discovered."
Despite Indira Singh’s and Sibel
Edmond’s testimony, their testimony was intentionally left out of
the commission’s final report as a result of the Bush administration.
Federal judge Reggie Walton is
the judge used by Ashcroft and Bush to uphold the DOJ’s gag order
on Edmonds and block Sibel Edmond’s testimony about corrupt US officials
involved in money laundering, drug trafficking, arms trafficking tied
to the 911 attacks, AlQaeda, and the Turkish American council. GW
Bush and Ashcroft were also involved in having federal judge Reggie
Walton block the lawsuit filed against Iraq by 20 OKC bombing victims.
Evidence in the OKC bombing case exposed the FBI and DOJ’s foreknowledge
and use of the same provocateurs and informants in the OKC bombing
that had also worked with Chertoff during the 1993 WTC bombing Melvin
Lattimore, Anas and Assad Siddiqy and Mohammed Chafti , the recruits
of Emad Salem for Chertoff and the FBI.
Ptech was a Boston software firm
financed by Saudi businessman Yassin Al-Qadi, a key financial backer
of Osama bin Laden. Ptech's clients included many 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.
Ptech was an outside contractor
with strong terrorist ties that was in a position to have infiltrated
and sabotaged and taken advantage of information from government computer
systems vital on 9-11. Ptech was in the FAA building for two years
before 9/11. Ptech worked on interoperability of the FAA with NORAD
and the Air Force during emergencies like 9-11. Ptech had the opportunity
to know intimate procedures at FAA and NORAD, to add or change software,
and to mine databases in a way that may have helped the 9-11 hijackers
and planners. In October 2001 the chief financier of Ptech Corporation,
Yassin Al-Qadi was formally designated as a terrorist financier under
the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. Al-Qadi was also
a key financial backer of Osama bin Laden. The Bush administration
delayed investigating Ptech after October 2001. A government investigation
did not start until August 2002 when a Boston WBZ-TV investigation
called attention to Ptech.
WBZ-TV started its investigation
based on reliable and accurate information given to WBZ-TV about Ptech’s
terror connections by the Ptech business associate Indira Singh.
Federal authorities told WBZ-TV
not to air the story in September 2002 because it would jeopardize
their investigation and would threaten national security. But Joe
Bergantino, the WBZ-TV reporter who did the story, has said he now
believes the government's demand to hold off on the story was instead
Ptech whistleblowers initially
went to FBI agents in 2001, but the whistleblowers say that the FBI
and DOJ (Chertoff’s criminal division) did nothing adequate to respond
and investigate. Then the whistleblowers went to US Customs agents
working under operation Greenquest and these agents finally raided
Ptech in December 2002 after the Bush DOJ and FBI deliberately waited,
delayed and stalled for a year and a half. The impedance, delay and
stalling by the FBI and DOJ however continued after the Customs raid
on Ptech as the FBI then stepped in and unsuccessfully tried to take
control of the case.
In October 2001, Chertoff was appointed
head of Operation Greenquest, a multi-agency initiative to target
sources of funding for terrorist organizations, according to a U.S.
Customs Service press release. Chertoff told the Associated Press
on Oct. 25, 2001 that, “The lifeblood of terrorism is money, and if
we cut the money we cut the blood supply.”
But this is an exceptionally hypocritical
statement given Chertoff’s legal defense of Dr. Magdy Elamir and Chertoff’s
knowledge that Dr. Elamir was sending money skimmed from a New Jersey
HMO to bin Laden and to the terrorist cell of Abdel Rahman at the
Al Salaam mosque whose members Chertoff had used to blow up the WTC
with Emad Salem and the FBI in 1993. But just as bad, and perhaps
even more hypocritical if not corrupt, is the fact that while also
head of Greenquest, Chertoff, the DOJ and FBI impeded and sabotaged
the efforts of Customs agents investigating Ptech and the very agents
who had set up Greenquest in the first place! Former U.S. Customs
chief Robert Bonner created Operation Greenquest just after the September
11 terror attacks to be a high-profile federal task force targeting
the financiers of Al Qaeda and other international terrorist groups.
But as noted, in October 2001, Chertoff was appointed head of Operation
Greenquest. When the Customs task force was folded into Homeland Security,
the FBI and DOJ (criminal division and 9-11 team headed by Chertoff
at the time) demanded that the White House instead give the FBI and
DOJ total control over Greenquest and the Ptech investigation.
Homeland Security officials accuse
the FBI (and DOJ) of intentionally sabotaging Greenquest investigations
by Customs and Homeland security agents by not turning over critical
information to their agents and obfuscating FBI failure to actively
pursue terror finance cases. “They [the FBI] won’t share anything
with us,” said a Homeland Security official. “Then they go to the
White House and they accuse us of not sharing … If they can’t take
it over, they want to kill it.”
What further bolsters Homeland
Security officials assertions of deliberate FBI and DOJ (Chertoff)
sabotage of the Ptech investigation is the fact that even after WBZ-TV
finally ran its story on Ptech and after the Greenquest raid, there
still have to this date been no charges or indictments against Al-Qadi
or anyone else connected with Ptech.
On May 13, 2003 John Ashcroft and
Tom Ridge stepped into the cover-up by Chertoff and Bush by signing
a "Memorandum of Agreement” between DOJ and Homeland Security, formally
taking control of the Ptech investigation from the Department of Homeland
Security (DHS), giving it to the FBI and DOJ, and further giving the
FBI unprecedented unilateral control of all terrorist-financing investigations
and operations. According to the memorandum, "all appropriate DHS
leads relating to money laundering and financial crimes will be checked
with the FBI."
Chertoff and the FBI strongly impeded
and obstructed the US Customs and Homeland Security operation Greenquest
investigating the Saudi, Ptech and other terror money sources for
9-11. The DOJ, Chertoff and FBI were given control of the Ptech investigation
and Greenquest based on the agreement signed by Ridge and Ashcroft.
To make doubly sure that nothing is done by the backdoor by Homeland
Security to reveal the DOJ and FBI sabotage and cover-up of the Ptech
investigation and other Saudi backing of terror finances, Chertoff
has now been put in place at Homeland Security to replace Tom Ridge.
FBI and DOJ (Chertoff) sabotage
of terror funding investigations does not just end with Ptech and
Greenquest. It is even more disturbing that no charges or indictments
have been made against bin Laden terror financier Al-Qadi when one
considers the fact that the 1998 FBI operation Vulgar Betrayal confiscated
over $1.4 million in terror funds part of which were directly linked
to Saudi Arabian businessman Yassin Al-Qadi long before his role at
Ptech came up. Investigators believe Al-Qadi provided as much as $3
billion to the AlQaeda terrorist network up until the Vulgar Betrayal
Chicago FBI agent Robert Wright
over the objections of FBI intelligence officers initiated the criminal
investigations under Vulgar Betrayal. Wright has said FBI intelligence
types did not want their probes of terrorist suspects interrupted
or ended by the suspects' arrests for criminal activities. Wright
further has stated that FBI management "intentionally and repeatedly
thwarted and obstructed" his attempts to expand the investigation
to ARREST other terrorists and seize their assets.
Wright staked his reputation and
career on his complaints against FBI management when he wrote a memo
91 days before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks warning that Americans
would die as a result of the FBI’s failure to adequately pursue investigations
of terrorists living in the country. Wright held a news conference
after the 9-11 attacks with his attorney David Schippers to air his
complaints. Wright indicated that 9-11 could have been avoided if
the FBI had allowed Wright to continue his criminal investigations
and arrest known Hamas terrorists and terrorist financiers that Wright
was investigating for over four years.
Wright’s attorney, David Schippers
was the legal counsel for the House managers during the trial of Clinton
in the US Senate. Ashcroft and DOJ attorneys like Chertoff have repeatedly
and aggressively rebuffed Schippers’ and Wright’s attempts to correct
the problems identified by Wright at the FBI and DOJ that led in part
In response to Wright’s news conference,
John Collingwood, assistant director of the FBI's office of public
and congressional affairs, sent a letter to Schippers in May 2002
that explicitly told Wright not to disclose the contents of Wright’s
memo - in writing or verbally - to anyone not approved by the FBI.
The Collingwood letter also contained what Wright and his attorneys
considered an intimidating threat.
Hamas cells in the US that were
investigated by FBI agent Robert Wright of Chicago and FBI agents
in Florida and OKC for years before 9-11 are part of the terror underground
railroad/network set up in the US in 1995 by Khalid and Ali Mohammed
and Zawahiri to work with Iraqis, AlQaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic for
terror activities in the US. This was fully known to the FBI, CIA,
Ashcroft, Gonzales and Chertoff and is the result of White House approved
corrupt policy of intentionally permitting known terror groups to
operate for years in the US, to track them allegedly for intelligence
purposes, without getting them off the streets even NOW. This policy
practiced by Chertoff, the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton and Bush White
Houses strongly contributed to the 1993 WTC and 1995 bombings as well
as the 9-11 attacks.
Chertoff may really in fact know
where terrorist money was/is coming from and going via semi-legit
organizations, terror business operations possibly like Ptech, Saudi
financiers, drug trafficking, and money laundering via banks infiltrated
by US intelligence and US criminal elements. But Chertoff has tried
to steer Congress away from learning what he knows by publicly trying
to persuade the Senate Banking Committee (looking into the terrorists’
money trail in the aftermath of 9-11) into believing it is not possible
to know in sufficient detail:
"Frankly, we can't differentiate
between terrorism and organized crime and drug dealing."
“These groups don't hold themselves
independently: They work with one another. Terrorists get engaged
in drug activity. They have relationships with organized crime."
These statements by Chertoff to
Congress sound eerily like the assertions and allegations of Indira
Singh and Sibel Edmonds because they are based on the same evidence-
evidence that Chertoff, Gonzales, Ashcroft and GW Bush are trying
to cover-up and hide and that Singh and Edmonds are trying to expose
to save America from corruption.
Protecting Bush and Saudi Terror
GW Bush ordered the FBI (and DOJ)
to stop investigating all Saudi business and money ties to terrorists
as soon as Bush became President in early 2001. Ever since becoming
President Bush has used Chertoff in more instances than just the Ptech
case to make sure the Saudi terror backer ties to 9-11 and to Bush
were hidden before, during and after 9-11. Here is an excerpt from
a speech given by John Loftus, a former Deputy US Attorney, in August
2004 that describes the effect of Bush orders to lay off investigations
of Saudi backers of terrorism:
“So I had all my friends in the
FBI and CIA send in these files. I said, “Why haven't you prosecuted
this guy (Saudi financial terror backer)?...“We'd love to. We've tried
to prosecute him but we were told we couldn't touch him because he
gets all of his money from the Saudis, and we are all under orders
not to do anything to embarrass the Saudi government.”
John Loftus was a US prosecutor
and has been a longtime lawyer for whistleblowers in the American
GW Bush had ties to the companies
in the US funneling Saudi money to AlQaeda via HolyLand Foundation
and InfoCom in Dallas, which also ran a website for Iraq and was represented
by close Bush friends and attorneys at Akin and Gump (law firm known
for representing drug dealer king pins). Saudi Royal banker Khalid
Bin Mahfouz was on the board for both of these companies. Mahfouz
was involved with GW and HW Bush in the BCCI scandal, and Harken and
Arbusto oil companies. Mahfouz was a defendant in a trillion dollar
lawsuit by 9-11 families and he has been linked to financing of the
bombing of the USS Cole.
InfoCom and HolyLand were raided
by the FBI on Sept 5, 2001, just 6 days before 9-11 and at the time
Michael Chertoff was head of the DOJ criminal division. A federal
grand jury under the control of Chertoff was conducting a grand jury
investigation for InfoCom and Holyland at the time.
The FBI’s OKC Bomb task force inspector
Danny Defenbaugh was tracking the AlQaeda front organizations in Dallas
connected to these companies for several years prior to 2001 as SAC
of the Dallas FBI office. Defenbaugh was tracking the AlQaeda financiers
like at Holyland and InfoCom and AlQaeda members including bin Laden’s
personal secretary El Hage using Dallas police officers. In early
2001 the FBI 302 reports showing the arrest and release but involvement
of three men in the OKC bombing were found hidden in Defenbaugh’s
office. Emad Salem had recruited the same three men for the FBI and
Chertoff to help carry out the 1993 WTC bombing. They were Anas and
Asad Siddiqy and Mohammed Chafti who had rented a car in Dallas and
were fleeing to Dallas when they were arrested in Dallas the day of
the OKC bombing The Siddiqys continued to work with Khalid Mohammed
after the 1993 WTC bombing on the plans for the OKC bombing and for
the 9-11 attacks. This was known to the FBI and CIA and likely Chertoff
going back to 1995 and also may have had a bearing on the raid of
InfoCom and HolyLand just 6 days before 9-11 in Dallas.
Because InfoCom and HolyLand Foundation
were allowed to operate by the FBI and DOJ for years with known terror
connections and ties to Bush and the Saudis friend of Bush, and because
no indictments of Bush business associate Mahfouz and Bush attorneys
representing these companies were ever handed down, there is a very
strong suspicion that any evidence that the federal Grand jury may
have gotten from the FBI raid on the companies just before 9-11 was
redacted, manipulated or slanted by Chertoff and the DOJ to protect
the FBI, DOJ, Bush, the Saudis and Khalid Mahfouz. Was evidence also
confiscated from these companies that implicated Bush, the FBI, DOJ,
CIA and Chertoff in prior knowledge and possible provocation of the
9-11 attacks, provocation like was done in the 1993 WTC bombing by
Chertoff and the FBI??
It is very conceivable Ashcroft,
Chertoff, Gonzales and the FBI have now likely scrubbed any evidence
seized at InfoCom and HolyLand that might have been incriminating
to the FBI, DOJ, Bush, the Saudis and Bush attorneys.
GW Bush and HW Bush have a long
history of dealing with Saudi terror backers and Saudi financing via
BCCI connections to James Bath, Saudi Khalid Mahfouz, and FBI director
Robert Mueller while he was at DOJ.
Besides Khalid Mahfouz, GW Bush
has had long standing ties to terrorist backer Sami Al Arian. GW Bush
met with Al Arian several times and took campaign contributions from
him when Bush had been previously warned by the Secret Service that
Al Arian was a terrorist
Sami Al Arian and his terror cell
group in Florida was investigated and tracked by the FBI in Florida
for over 13 years before Al Arian was arrested after 9-11. Al Arian
and his group were associated with the OKC bombing, the 9-11 attacks
and funding of the terrorist groups, Hamas, AlQaeda and Islamic Jihad.
Al Arian and his terror cell in
Florida were tracked but intentionally and knowingly allowed to operate
in Florida by Chertoff, the FBI and DOJ as enablers for AlQaeda, Hamas
and Islamic Jihad in Florida for years. FBI and Israeli intelligence
agents jointly monitored Al Arian’s group in Florida for over 13 years
and information gleaned from the group was passed on to the FBI office
in OKC warning them of an attack on OKC’s federal building three days
before the OKC bombing. This joint operation and the information it
developed was available to and likely known to Chertoff while he was
head of DOJ’s criminal division.
Chertoff and Porter Goss directly
assisted Bush in keeping the 28 missing pages out of the 9-11 Congressional
report. According to public statements by Senators Bob Graham and
Richard Shelby, these 28 missing pages referred directly to the Saudi
money, drug and arms trafficking ties to 9-11 and GW Bush. The missing
pages also refer in part to the InfoCom and Holyland Foundation case
as well as the allegations of Sibel Edmond, Indira Singh and FBI agent
Robert Wright about Ptech and its bin Laden, AlQaeda financier, Yassin
Qadi. They also refer to Saudi funding of 9-11 hijacker pilots AlMhidhar
and AlHazmi while living in an apartment provided by an FBI informant
and provocateur in San Diego, Abdusattar Sheikh.
The DOJ, Chertoff and the FBI directly
prevented FBI agents from testifying at the 9-11 Congressional hearings.
The agents were in a position to testify about their tracking of 9-11
hijacker terrorists AlMhidhar and AlHazmi and their monitoring of
the Saudi money connections to the these hijackers. Porter Goss and
his director, James Lewis, helped Bush, Ashcroft and Chertoff cover-up
and impede the 9-11 Congressional investigation while Goss was Chairman
of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of the 9-11 attacks.
My attorney Mike Johnston and I had direct communications with James
Lewis during the Lewis and Goss cover-up in the 9-11 Congressional
hearings and report. Now as head of the CIA, Goss is in a position
like Chertoff to perpetrate and cover up more terror pretexts as an
excuse for laying the groundwork for a police state in America.
Using Nazi Trained Muslim Brotherhood
The CIA, the DOJ, the FBI and US
Presidents including HW Bush, GW Bush and Clinton, have used Nazi
and German (West and East-STASI) trained and backed members of the
Muslim Brotherhood for decades for operations in the US, the ME, Afghanistan
and Israel according to a public speech entitled ” Muslim Brotherhood, Nazis and Al Qaeda” given by John Loftus in
Israel in August 2004. As a former US prosecutor with the DOJ’s Nazi-hunting
unit, Loftus was granted access to classified CIA and NATO archives.
Many of the participants known
to the CIA, FBI and DOJ (Chertoff) who carried out the 9-11 attacks,
the OKC and the 1993 WTC bombing were members of the Muslim Brotherhood
who also had prior and distinct connections to the CIA and German
intelligence. Khalid Mohammed, Mohammed Elamir Atta and FBI informant
Melvin Lattimore were all members of the Muslim brotherhood with prior
FBI and CIA connections. Khalid Mohammed and Mohammed Atta were funded
first by Iraq and Sadam Hussein and the Muslim Brotherhood, then by
Al Fatah (Melvin Lattimore was
the North American recruiter for Al Fatah), PLO, PLFP and Hamas and
even AlQaeda are all direct out growths of the CIA used, supported,
nurtured and preserved elements of the Nazi based Muslim brotherhood
going back to World War II.
9-11 hijacker Mohammed Atta was
funded by Saddam Hussein and Pakistan directly through the Muslim
Brotherhood according to documents reported on in late 2003 by Scott
Wheeler of Insight magazine.
Phoenix FBI agent Ken Williams
and other FBI agents were authorized by Janet Reno to make payments
to Hamas in the US to track Hamas operations but nothing was done
about Hamas at the time or for years afterwards.
The FBI tracked and monitored Hamas
operations in Florida and OKC connected to the OKC bombing and the
9-11 attacks for over 13 years but did nothing about Hamas.
Hamas cells in the US that were
investigated by FBI agent Robert Wright of Chicago and FBI agents
in Florida and OKC for years before 9-11 are part of the terror underground
railroad/network set up in the US in 1995 by Khalid and Ali Mohammed
and Zawahiri to work with Iraqis, ALQaeda, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad
for terror activities in the US. This is fully known to the FBI, CIA,
and Chertoff and is part of the corrupt and arrogant policy of letting
known terror groups to operate for years in the US without getting
them off the streets even NOW. The White House, the FBI and CIA wrongly
think they have enough control of these groups "to keep anything bad
from happening with a 99% certainty" (quote from Dale Watson on PBS
documentary in 2003).
Chertoff, the DOJ, the FBI and
the CIA knew and covered up the fact they knew that an East German
STASI agent (members still in the new republic of Germany) helped
train the Hamburg cell of Mohammed Atta, AlShehhi and Ziad Jarrah.
Terrorists Ramzi Yousef and Khalid Mohammed were likely trained by
terrorist Abu Nidal for Iraq and by Egyptian CIA and FBI operative
Ali Mohammed The FBI intentionally helped populate three Abu Nidal
terror cells in the US in 1995 according to Congressional testimony
by FBI director Louis Freeh. While acting as the assistant Attorney
General of the DOJ, Chertoff played a major role in reformulating
U.S. anti-terrorism policy. Chertoff was one of the chief architects
of Title III of the USA PATRIOT Act, also known as the International
Money Laundering Abatement and Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001.
PATRIOT Act and Police State
Chertoff did in fact help write
the many objectionable "sunset" parts of the PATRIOT Act that Gonzales
wants restored when they expire because they have proclaimed (as an
excuse) that the US is in a never-ending, perpetual war with terrorism.
They want to suspend the US Constitution in favor of military law
at the event of another major terror attack just as General Tommie
Franks has publicly warned.
Chertoff not only helped develop
illegal and unconstitutional police laws for a US police state at
DOJ, but Chertoff now, as Homeland Security Chief will carry out these
same police state laws. Chertoff will willingly carry out and extend
the perverted legal umbrella legalese excuses provided in the Alberto
Gonzales memo that proclaimed Bush, as President, is above the law
during an unending, self-declared war on terrorism.
Further evidence of Chertoff’s
desire to establish a US police state is provided by the fact that
Chertoff will be using ex-KGB and STASI chiefs to work under Chertoff
at Homeland Security. The Foreign Press Foundation reported on December
16, 2004 that the Chertoff-led US Homeland Security agency had hired
Soviet secret service KGB chief, General Yevgeni Primakov, as well
as the ex-boss of the East German intelligence, Marcus Wolfe.
It is clear that Chertoff’s rapid
rise to the position of Homeland Security Director is in part because
of Chertoff’s willingness to help illegally, immorally and intentionally
provoke and not try to stop the 1993 WTC, the 1995 OKC and 9-11 attacks.
Chertoff has deliberately used these intentionally orchestrated attacks
to provide the pretexts to falsely justify writing unconstitutional
laws and lay the groundwork for a US police state. But his rise is
also attributable to Chertoff’s willingness to do unethical political
and legal favors for those who put him in his new position.
When Chertoff was named by Bush
to head the Justice Department’s Criminal Division it was reported
that Chertoff had squelched an indictment of New Jersey Senator Torricelli
as a reward for Torricelli’s support of key Bush legislation the Democratic
Party leadership opposed.
Nick Acocella, editor of the New
Jersey based “Politifax”, has said that at the height of the Torricelli
scandal, and while Chertoff was U.S. attorney, Acocella saw Torricelli
and Chertoff embrace and huddle at a South Jersey banquet. Normally
a federal prosecutor like Chertoff would have been expected to keep
a safe distance from Torricelli since Torricelli was the target of
criminal investigations making headlines in the New Jersey media.
Of course, one should not forget
that Chertoff was also the US prosecutor investigating and controlling
the outcome of the investigations into Whitewater and the Vince Foster
death, cases that raised serious questions about both Democratic and
Republican corruption and criminal behavior in high places.
Respected columnist Robert Novak
reported in a January 2005 column
that as head of the DOJ criminal division in 2001, Chertoff had been
calling the shots to have Presidential Executive privilege invoked
and to deny materials requested in 13 subpoenas by the House Government
Reform Committee concerning the FBI’s shocking misuse of the mob in
Boston decades earlier including a time period when former President
HW Bush was running the mob and CIA affiliated Boston Fruit Company
(1963). In one case an innocent man went to prison on murder charges
because of lies told by an FBI informant. Two of the FBI’s undercover
men, including the notorious Whitey Bulger, committed murder without
Novak wrote that Novak had listened
to Chertoff at a 2001 Christmas party explain why Chertoff was for
using executive privilege. Novak heard Chertoff argue that there never
was any need for the executive branch to grant demands for documents
from the legislative branch. During Chertoff’s last year at DOJ, Chertoff
was frequently the man who rejected requests for documents. The watchdog
organization Judicial Watch provided substantial evidence of IRS harassment,
but Chertoff made the decision to not investigate the Clinton administration’s
alleged misuse of Internal Revenue Service scrutiny on critics of
Bill Clinton. The watchdog organization Judicial Watch had provided
substantial evidence of IRS harassment that Chertoff chose to disregard.
Judicial Watch raised concerns
(Chertoff’s Crimes ) again
about Chertoff during the Senate confirmation hearings for Chertoff’s
nomination to the federal Circuit Court. In May of 2003, Judicial
Watch Chairman Larry Klayman and President Tom Fitton presented Senate
Judiciary Committee members with a detailed chronology of alleged
Justice Department misuse of organized crime operatives by the FBI
and other U.S. government agencies in the District of New Jersey while
Mr. Chertoff served as the U.S. Attorney there from 1990 to 1994.
It was a scenario very reminiscent of the Boston FBI and mob scandal
that Chertoff had tried to stonewall in 2001. Senators Leahy and Hatch
announced an investigation into the matter three days later but the
inquiry only consisted of asking Chertoff about the charges, which
Chertoff denied. Chertoff was then quickly confirmed as a federal
Michael Chertoff said very clearly
during his confirmation hearings on Capitol Hill that he strongly
supports President Bush's devastating amnesty/"guestworker" plan for
illegal aliens. With Chertoff backing this terrible policy position,
it is all but a certainty that Homeland Security under Chertoff will
not adequately protect our borders and will not protect Americans
from 12-16 million unscreened illegal immigrants already here, some
of whom are terrorists and terrorist sleepers.
