The CIA, Al Qaeda and 9/11
Central Intelligence Agency
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.
- Who is the Terrorist?
Why is it when the US is trying to fight a war on terror, they are themselves using terror tactics? Who is and what should be done about it?
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.
- Is the War, on Terrorists or Terror?
We are told that we are winning the war on terror. Is this true? What will define success and is it possible to have two winners?
- Nationality of Terrorism
Why is it that Israel are so quick to apportion blame for the attempted diplomatic killings? Why are the US in support? Is there a war on terror or just excuse?
- Chemical Weapons: What to Believe?
With troubles escalating in the Middle East what is the talk of chemical weapons and what role is the US playing?
- Who is Safe from Terrorism?
Are we safe from terrorism? This true story may give you doubts. Why wasn't this reported in the US media?
- The Facts, the True Facts and nothing but the Facts
We are regularly given scientific reports. Some of these reports seem to contradict each other. When these reports are given they should mention who funded the research, so that we may better judge the truth.
