Important article from Whitney Webb:

Newly Released FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks
“…hundreds of Israeli nationals were arrested in the aftermath of the attacks.”

In total, the FBI reported that four items related to explosives were found in the [van] and are labeled in the report as “Fabric Sample (Explosive Residue),” “Control Swabs – SA [ – ] Gloves,” “Control Swabs – (Bomb Suits),” and “Blanket Samples For Explosive Residue.” In addition, a VHS tape and some still photographs found in the van “were sent to Laboratory Examiner [ redacted ] (Explosives Unit).”

…A former Urban Moving Systems employee later contacted the Newark Division with information indicating that he had quit his employment with Urban Moving Systems as a result of the high amount of anti-American sentiment present among Urban’s employees. The former employee stated that an Israeli employee of Urban had even once remarked, “Give us twenty years and we’ll take over your media and destroy your country” (page 37 of the FBI report).

FOIA Release of 9/11 Dancing Israelis thru the FBI

Urban Moving Systems:

The building and all of its contents had been abandoned by…the owner of Urban Moving Systems. This [was] apparently being done to avoid criminal prosecution after the 09/11/2001 arrest of five of his employees and subsequent seizure of his office computer systems by members of the FBI-NK on or around 09/13/2001.”

The company’s owner — Dominik Otto Suter, an Israeli citizen — had fled to Israel on September 14, 2001, two days after he had been questioned by the FBI. The FBI told ABC Newsthat “Urban Moving may have been providing cover for an Israeli intelligence operation.” Surprisingly, since at least 2016, Suter has been living in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he works for a contractor for major tech companies like Google and Microsoft. According to the public records database Intelius, in 2006 and 2007 Suter also worked for a telecommunications company — Granite Telecommunications — that works for the U.S. military and several other U.S. government agencies.

Judge Orders US Government to Stop Suppressing Evidence of Torture and Abuse

Occupy Houston assassination plot records won’t be released

(CN) – The FBI was right to withhold records about an alleged murder plot targeting the leaders of Occupy Houston, to protect its informants, a federal judge ruled.
Plaintiff Ryan Noah Shapiro is a doctoral student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research includes “the policing of dissent … especially in the name of national security” and “examining FBI and other intelligence agency efforts to preserve domestic surveillance capabilities while simultaneously subverting the Freedom of Information Act,” according to his MIT profile.
Shapiro sent the FBI three Freedom of Information Act requests in early 2013, asking for records about “a potential plan to gather intelligence against the leaders of [Occupy Wall Street-related protests in Houston] and obtain photographs, then formulate a plan to kill the leadership [of the protests] via suppressed sniper rifles.”

This is Obama’s FBI and Obama’s “Justice Department” helping domestic terrorists who had plotted to kill Occupy leaders. Why aren’t they being prosecuted? Why aren’t they under arrest?

The bullshit fake “alternative” media doesn’t even touch this because it’s Obama’s jurisdiction. They can’t just blame it all on Bush. This is what partisan, two-party schizoid politics has done to this country. Domestic terrorists go free without consequence, and the so-called “liberal left”  won’t even talk about it.

The most outrageous hypocrisy never, ever fazes the reptiles who control the USA or Israel.

US helped Israel with H-bomb – 1980s report declassified

“It’s our basic position that in 1987 the Department of Defense discovered that Israel had a nuclear weapons program, detailed it and then has covered it up for 25 years in violation of the Symington and Glenn amendments, costing taxpayers $86 billion,” Smith said during a hearing in late 2014 before Judge Tanya Chutkan in US District Court for the District of Columbia.

MOHAMED-ATTA

 

Miami Herald actually doing its job:

Documents cite ‘many connections’ between 9/11 figures, Florida family

Ghazzawi, advisor to a senior Saudi prince, owned the upscale south Sarasota home where his daughter, Anoud, and her husband, Abdulaziz al-Hijji lived prior to 9/11. Law enforcement sources have said that after 9/11 investigators found evidence — telephone records and photographs of license tags and security gate log books — showing that hijack pilot Mohamed Atta, former Broward resident and fugitive al Qaeda leader Adnan Shukrijumah and other terror suspects had visited the home. The home is about 10 miles from the Venice airport, where Atta and the two other hijack pilots trained.

Now you know that none of this made it into the “9/11 Commission” investigation (cover-up).  It is still greatly censored with numerous boxes of documents remaining classified.

Hardy said the file consists of 80,266 pages, divided into 411 “individual documents sections,” burned onto three CDs in a searchable format.

Everyone in this country should watch this DemocracyNow clip and try to understand where we are now as a nation.  Washington has unilaterally declared both the environmental movement and the animal rights movements to be the “greatest terrorist threats” that the United States faces.  Neither movement has terrorized anyone.  The terror is directed in the other direction, and that is state terror, state repression in the service of ensuring profits to the industries without accountability for their practices.

People who have drawn slogans on sidewalks with chalk, according to Ryan Shapiro, have been charged with “terrorism.”  Those who take undercover video of the most horrific animal abuses are treated as “terrorists.”  This insanity is the current law of this land.   Clearly this is fascism.  It is an unholy corporate/state abuse of power and erasure of the First Amendment of the Constitution.

Why Did the FBI Label Ryan Shapiro’s Dissertation on Animal Rights a Threat to National Security?

Here is an example of the FBI perpetrating dirty tricks against US citizen activists in the service of corporate factory farms.  Your tax dollars at work funding the secret police smear campaigns:

“Organizers of the Animal Rights Movement can be discredited and removed from the scene by planting rumors that they are plants and informants.” -FBI Memo, May 12, 2005

Antiwar.com Under Surveillance

American Conservative:

“In May, with considerably less fanfare, Antiwar.com announced it was suing the FBI, demanding the release of records the editors believe the agency has been keeping on founder and managing editor Eric Garris and editorial editor Justin Raimondo. The suit stems from a 2004 memo a reader found through an unconnected FOIA request and passed along to Antiwar.com in 2011. The heavily redacted 94-page document clearly states the FBI had secretly investigated and monitored the website and declared—despite acknowledging there was no evidence of any crime—that further surveillance of Antiwar.com was necessary to determine if “[redaction] are engaging in, or have engaged in, activities which constitute a threat to national security on behalf of a foreign power.”

When contacted by this writer—who is also a regular contributor to Antiwar.com—the FBI press office declined comment, citing pending litigation.”
