With Kevin Ryan’s new book, probably the most accurate, informative and crucial work on the September 11th attacks to date, some other articles of Kevin’s are receiving more attention.
Here is what what is known about the massive insider trading that occurred related to firms and airlines involved (destroyed) in the WTC attack:
In the early days just after 9/11, financial regulators around the world gave testimony to unprecedented evidence for informed trading related to the terrorist attacks of that day. One central bank president (Welteke) said there was irrefutable proof of such trading. This evidence led US regulators to vow, in Congressional testimony, to bring those responsible to justice. Those vows were not fulfilled, as the people in charge of the investigations let the suspects off the hook by conducting weak inquiries and concluding that informed trading could not have occurred if it was not done directly by Osama bin Laden or al Qaeda.
The “exhaustive investigations” conducted by the FBI, on which the 9/11 Commission report was based, were clearly bogus. The FBI did not interview the suspects and did not appear to compare notes with the 9/11 Commission to help make a determination if any of the people being investigated might have had ties to al Qaeda. The Commission’s memorandum summary suggests that the FBI simply made decisions on its own regarding the possible connections of the suspects and the alleged terrorist organizations. Those unilateral decisions were not appropriate, as at least three of the suspected informed trades (those of Walker, the Viisage trader, and Wellington Management) involved reasonably suspicious links to Osama bin Laden or his family. Another suspect (Elgindy) was a soon-to-be convicted criminal who had direct links to FBI employees who were later arrested for securities-related crimes.
It amazes me that all this information has been published openly for 13 years now, and the cover-up of same has been glaring with Bush and Cheney on the record telling the senate not to investigate the September 11th attacks. And yet Americans just don’t get it. They don’t want to get it. They get lost in the bogus theories and disinformation and like morons paint everyone with the same ignorant brush. Half the country shouts nonsense against, and half for — with very few people pursuing the real leads.
Like Kevin Ryan, my pick for the most credible, knowledgeable person concerning the 9/11 cover up. Thanks, Kevin. Maybe we’ll have justice some day.
