The CIA, Al Qaeda and 9/11

Bin Laden

When it was in the US interests, during the “Cold War”, for resistance to be given against the Soviets controlling Afghanistan, the CIA recruited some help.

The main man they sort help from was Osama Bin Laden.

As well as Bin Laden they recruited many other Muslims to join in the fight. The names of these men were kept on a computer by the CIA, in a Database, which literally translated is “AL Qaeda”.

The men of the “Al Qaeda” were financed and trained by the CIA.

Their training included combat tactics, bomb making and communication skills.

Finance included armaments and communication equipment.

After the Soviets left Afghanistan, these “mercenaries” were left with the supplies that they had been given. Their views had not changed they were the same as they were when the CIA recruited them: prevention of foreign intervention in Muslim countries.

They were now obviously opposed to the United States growing interests in the Middle East.


By now many people believe that there was more involved in the tragedy of 9/11 than what we are told.

Some of the reasons for this growing doubt are:

The fact that: explosions were heard in the basement of the buildings, just prior to the aircraft colliding with the buildings.

The belief that: Israeli owned businesses in the buildings did not open that day.

The fact that: the amount of fuel in the aircraft on its own could not have caused such destruction to the building structures.

The fact that: whilst most of the equipment in the aircraft was burnt beyond recognition, the Passport of one of the supposed terrorists was conveniently blown, virtually untouched, clear of the ground zero.

It also seems convenient that just at a time when Al Qaeda had become troublesome to the CIA; they conveniently appear to be responsible for this tragedy. Especially so, when it is reported that: on the very morning of 9/11, top CIA officials were to have breakfast with members of the Bin Laden family.


When you put all these factors together it would appear that somewhere we are not being told the whole truth.

Firstly, if Al Qaeda members were on a CIA list, the CIA would have at least a rough idea as to where these people were.

The two main reasons for the invasion of Iraq were given as firstly to capture Al Qaeda and secondly to take control of the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), held by Iraq.

The possession of the WMD proved to be untrue. Now we must also realize that because the CIA were aware, roughly, of the location of Al Qaeda, it was obvious to them prior to the invasion that there was no Al Qaeda presence in the country.

It would seem that we are constantly and continuously, deliberately being told lies.

I do not care whether the powers in charge feel that the end justifies the means.

I do not care whether the powers in charge think that the “collateral damage” will be worth it.

What I do care about is that the lives of young heroes may be lost to a cause that they were not even aware of.

What I do care about is that the lives of young heroes may be lost so that some body’s political or financial life may be improved.

It is time that the politicians trusted the people of their country to make the right choices for themselves, given all the facts. After all, isn’t that what they tell us every election time or are they admitting that at election time we are also lied to.

It is said that the truth will set us free.

Free from meaninglessly dying, free from senselessly killing and free from debt.

The politicians are supposed to be the solution, NOT the problem.

      Whatever "truths" the money men want broadcast to the slaves will be the ones politicians broadcast with all gravitas and earnestness. The only reason for war is greed, the world won't support the uppercrust and all the little people, guess who suffers.

      Bankers control us all; I am surprised they don't have a bounty on them!

      Once again you are right on with what you and all of us care about, which is justice.

      It is becoming increasingly obvious that those that 'we the people' voted into power are the true terrorist and it is time to clean our own house first!
