Alleged Trainer Of 9/11 Hijackers a CIA Informant

I’m just a patsy!

Sakka attempts to plug holes in 9/11 official story, claims Hanjour did not pilot Flight 77

The man who claims to have trained six of the 9/11 hijackers is a paid CIA informant according to Turkish intelligence specialists, who also assert that Al-Qaeda is merely the name of a secret service operation designed to foment a strategy of tension around the world.

In a London Times report, Louai al-Sakka, now incarcerated in a high-security Turkish prison 60 miles east of Istanbul, claims that he trained six of the 9/11 hijackers at a camp in the mountains near Istanbul from 1999-2000.

Sakka was imprisoned in 2005 after being caught making bombs that he planned to use to blow up Israeli vessels.

Sakka asserts that he is a leading Al-Qaeda operative, having directed insurgency attacks in Iraq and also the beheading of Briton Kenneth Bigley in October 2004.

Some of Sakka’s account is corroborated by the US government’s 9/11 Commission. It found evidence that four of the hijackers – whom Sakka says he trained – had initially intended to go to Chechnya from Turkey but the border into Georgia was closed. Sakka had prepared fake visas for the group’s travel to Pakistan and arranged their flights from Istanbul’s Ataturk airport. The group of four went to the al-Farouq camp near Kandahar and the other two to Khaldan, near Kabul, an elite camp for Al-Qaeda fighters.

When Moqed and Suqami returned to Turkey, Sakka employed his skills as a forger to scrub out the Pakistani visa stamps from their passports. This would help the Arab men enter the United States without attracting suspicion that they had been to a training camp.

“But, as with many things in the world of Al-Qaeda, there might be smoke and mirrors,” reports the Times. “Some experts believe that Sakka could be overstating his importance to the group, possibly to lay a false track for western agencies investigating his terrorist colleagues.”

However, when one considers what other experts have said about Sakka, it appears that his intentions towards “western agencies” are anything but deceptive – since Turkish intelligence analysts concluded that Sakka has been a CIA asset all along.

Prominent Turkish newspaper Zaman reported that Sakka was hired as a CIA informant in 2000, after receiving a large sum of money from the agency. This would explain why he was “captured” but then released on two separate occasions by the CIA during the course of 2000.

Sakka was later captured by Turkish intelligence but again ordered to be released after which he moved to Germany to assist the alleged 9/11 hijackers.

Shortly before 9/11, Sakka was allegedly hired by Syrian intelligence – to whom he gave a warning that the attacks were coming on September 10th, 2001.

In his book At the Center of the Storm, former CIA director George Tenet writes, that “a source we were jointly running with a Middle Eastern country went to see his foreign handler and basically told him something big was about to go down.”

“This is very likely a reference to Sakra, since no one else comes close to matching the description of telling a Middle Eastern government about the 9/11 attacks one day in advance, not to mention working as an informant for the CIA at the same time. Tenet’s revelation strongly supports the notion that Sakra in fact accepted the CIA’s offers in 2000 and had been working with the CIA and other intelligence agencies at least through 9/11 ,” writes 9/11 researcher Paul Thompson, who was also interviewed for the London Times article.

Were the alleged “interrogations” of Sakka on behalf of the CIA merely a smokescreen to enable instructions to be passed on? This is certainly the view of Turkish intelligence experts, who go further and conclude that “Al-Qaeda” as a whole is merely a front group for western intelligence agencies used to foment a “strategy of tension” around the world.

Is Sakka still in the employ of western intelligence agencies? His apparent effort to plug the holes in the official 9/11 story is fascinating.

According to Sakka, Nawaf al-Hazmi was a veteran operative who went on to pilot the plane that hit the Pentagon. Although this is at odds with the official account, which says the plane was flown by another hijacker, it is plausible and might answer one of the mysteries of 9/11.

The Pentagon plane performed a complex spiral dive into its target. Yet the pilot attributed with flying the plane (Hani Hanjour) “could not fly at all” according to his flight instructors in America. Hazmi, on the other hand, had mixed reviews from his instructors but they did remark on how “adept” he was on his first flight.

Exactly how “adept” one has to be to pull off maneuvers that would be impossible for veteran crack fighter pilots is not explored in the Times report.

Vaccinations at Gunpoint in a Brave New Orwellian World

Children herded like cattle into Maryland courthouse for forced vaccinations as armed police stand guard

Following the State of Maryland’s threats against parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated, children were herded into a Price George County courthouse being guarded by armed personnel with attack dogs. Inside, the children were forcibly vaccinated, many against their will, under orders from the State Attorney General, various State Judges and the local School Board Director, all of whom illegally conspired to threaten parents with imprisonment if they did not submit their children to vaccinations.

The State of Maryland has now turned to Gestapo tactics to force its medical will upon the People, stripping parents of any right to decide how they wish to protect their own children from infectious disease.

Health authorities in Maryland there have already announced their intent to essentially kidnap parents and throw them in jail, removing them from their children for up to thirty days if they continue to refuse to have their children vaccinated.

This will all be conducted at gunpoint, with armed personnel and attack dogs at the ready, making sure nobody steps out of line, and suppressing any attempt at public dissent against the Orwellian vaccination policies.

The entire campaign against these parents is blatantly illegal. There is no law in Maryland requiring the vaccination of children, thus parents who refuse to do so may not be legally charged with violating any law. Instead, Maryland health and school authorities are threatening to charge the parents with child truancy violations, criminalizing them for daring to protect their children from the dangerous chemicals found in vaccines including thimerosal, a chemical additive containing a neurotoxic form of mercury.

The methods of organized medicine is becoming apparent

As more and more parents are becoming informed about the dangers of vaccinations and their link to autism, state health authorities are increasingly turning to “Gunpoint Medicine” to force the People to submit to the poisons of conventional medicine. Parents who attempt to save their children from deadly chemotherapy chemicals are being arrested and having their children kidnapped by Child Protective Services.

The American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) announced its strong opposition to the Maryland “Gunpoint Medicine” vaccination campaign. In a press release published Nov. 16, the AAPS states:
“The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons today condemned the “vaccine roundup” executed in Prince George’s county Maryland this week, and promised to do everything it can to support parents who refuse to immunize their children.”

“This power play obliterates informed consent and parental rights,” said Kathryn Serkes, director of policy for the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), one of the few national physician groups that refuse corporate funding from pharmaceutical companies. Read the rest of the press release.

Conventional (pharmaceutical) medicine is the only system of medicine in the world that is so unpopular with informed consumers that it must be administered at the barrel of a gun.

At the Nov. 17th event in Maryland, activists Jim Moody and Kelly Ann Davis from SafeMinds were able to get in front of TV news cameras and voice their opposition to the coerced vaccination policy. Yet, amazingly, most parents just lined up like cattle ready to be branded, not bothering to question the sanity or legality of the very system in which they were now agreeing to participate.

A health freedom blog called Center for the Common Interest also covered the event.
What’s next for Gunpoint Medicine?

As the truth continues to emerge about the extreme dangers of vaccinations and pharmaceuticals, “Big Pharma” is becoming increasingly desperate to coerce the public into relying on its products. It is now working closely with state authorities (including Governors of several states) to mandate the use of vaccinations on young children. This results in the criminalization of parents who refuse to subject their children to these dangerous chemicals.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has already criminalized nutritional supplement companies who dare to tell the truth about the health benefits of their supplements.

What’s most interesting about this issue of using the threat of imprisonment to force vaccinations upon children is not necessarily who is speaking out against it, but who has chosen to remain silent?

The American Medical Association, for example, has said nothing in opposition to the policy.

Neither has the Food and Drug Administration.

Where is the outrage from the Maryland Hospital Association?

None of these organizations seem to have a problem with Gunpoint Medicine. All of these organizations are closely tied to “Big Pharma”. They’re all in favor of vaccinations for all, it seems, and I have no doubt that some individuals in these organizations (especially the AMA) are strongly in favor of the Gunpoint Medicine coerced vaccination policy being played out in Maryland right now.

It wasn’t too long ago that Americans would have stood up and rallied against this kind of medical tyranny. People would have been marching in the streets, demanding their health freedom. But today, it’s a different America. The People are drugged up on pharmaceuticals and dosed on fluoride. They’re too intoxicated to think straight.

The “free” America we all once knew is long gone, and it has been replaced with The United States of Corporate America, where police tactics are now used to enforce hazardous public health policies and perform large-scale medical experiments. That’s what modern vaccines are, after all: A grand medical experiment whose effects will only become known after a generation of mass poisoning has come and gone.

Don’t tase me drone!

UN declares stun guns to be instruments of torture while Taser rep says “it’s not real pain” and puts drone craft into development

They Live Taser Saucer To Become A Reality

by Steve Watson

One of the biggest Taser representatives outside the US base has declared the company’s intention to produce and sell internationally a small airborne drone version of the weapon that can administer electrical jolts of 50,000 volts.

Antoine di Zazzo has told the AFP that his French company is “developing a mini-flying saucer like drone which could also fire Taser stun rounds on criminal suspects or rioting crowds. He expects it to be launched next year and to be sold internationally by Taser.”

The idea conjures up memories of the flying saucer spy drones from the 1988 dystopian cult classic movie They Live. The opening of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four also features the idea of police flying overhead and snooping into homes. Now this nightmare vision is set to become reality.

With 250,000 Taser stun guns in use all over the world from North America, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand, to name just a few of 70 or so countries, it hardly takes a stretch of the imagination to foresee the take up of Taser’s airborne drones.

In addition we have also seen moves by police forces around the world to test and use flying drones. Most recently controversy was raised after it was discovered that Houston police have been secretly testing spy drones that use a high-powered cameras designed to look into buildings or even follow people in moving cars.

Drone Planes are not new to the United States. The military has been using drones for secret war zone surveillance for years; drones were also used to put out the California wildfires last month. The drones used for the test in Houston weigh only 40 pounds, but can carry 15 pounds more in gear. They are able to stay airborne 15 to 24 hours without landing.

Reports from June indicated that the Department of Homeland Security used a spy drone to stake out the property of income tax protestors Ed and Elaine Brown before they were arrested in September. In April the British press reported on a British amateur inventor who won a contract with the US government for a 3ft-wide flying saucer contraption, a cross between a hovercraft and a helicopter, which is being considered as a surveillance tool.

We have also recently seen drones used to keep tabs on concert goers in Britain. Such devices have since been deployed by police in areas of the UK for “tackling anti-social behaviour and public disorder”. Other reports have highlighted interest in drones and testing by police departments nationwide. Some protestors are even adamant that they have witnessed tiny insect like drones in deployment at anti war rallies. Such creations are certainly in development if not already in deployment.

Taser has been mired in controversy, since the wide uptake of its stun guns by police forces, due to the level of pain the devices inflict and the amount of deaths that have occurred after their use. Last week a perfectly healthy 20 year old man died in police custody after being shocked with a taser. Another 36-year-old man died Saturday five days after an altercation with police who used a Taser to subdue him. Last month a Polish man was killed at Vancouver airport after being stunned up to 4 times.

Further questions have been raised over more frequent police use of tasers. The guns are supposed to be the last response before lethal action, however, we have increasingly reported cases where police use them without warning and in non threatening situations.

Amnesty International has said there have been about 300 deaths around the world after Taser use and has called for it to be suspended while a full investigation into the impact is conducted.

On Friday, a UN Committee said the stun gun “causes acute pain, constituting a form of torture”.

Despite this Antoine di Zazzo of Taser International says that no death has been attributed to the use of the gun and that the controversy is caused by misunderstanding of new technology.

When asked about the UN verdict on the weapons di Zazzo replied “You cannot call it real pain,” and added that far from causing death, the gun “saves lives”.

How long will it be before small flying saucer drones are zipping around our cities zapping people in order to “save lives”?

Gore Remains Silent on Topics During Meeting with Bush

Together again, joining forces in unity on global warming to save the American people from this terrifying threat to our very existence?

AHN | Nov 27, 2007

Washington, D.C. (AHN) – Former Vice President Al Gore refused to disclose the points of discussion on the table during his meeting with political rival President Bush. The meeting was due to President Bush’s scheduled congratulatory meeting for the Nobel Prize winners, set right after the one-on-one between the rivals.

After the conclusion of the ceremonial recognition of the laureates, Al Gore told reporters that he would not reveal any details about what was discussed with the president. He did say, however, that the meeting was “very cordial” and “substantive”, according to the Baltimore Sun.

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino addressed the press on behalf of the meeting, where Gore and President Bush were seen standing side by side in front of the flashing cameras.

“[We] have a great tradition in this country of political rivals being able to put the past behind them and to work together for the benefit of the American people,” Perino said.

Perino said that the one-on-one, which was initiated by President Bush, was held “because [Gore] was part of the award winners, and because [President Bush] wanted to talk with him,” as quoted by the United Press International.

Gore and President Bush have had a long-standing rivalry, starting with the controversial U.S. presidential elections in which Bush beat Gore by a slim margin, after a questioned recount.

Al Gore has then left politics, and is now known to be an environmental activist, spearheading the climate change issue mostly with his book-turned-award-winning-documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The film has earned him multiple awards, including an Emmy and an Academy Award.

He was recently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work on the climate change campaign. He received the award together with the International Panel on Climate Change.

He has also been known to be one of the harshest critics of Bush’s environmental policies.

Gore mum after first secretive sitdown with Bush

  

Global warming brings them together in unity again.

Al Gore had hoped to leave his 40-minute Monday afternoon meeting with President Bush inconspicuously, exiting out the White House west entrance to avoid the awaiting press corps.

It was Gore’s first return to the White House since George W. Bush took office.

The president was officially honoring the 2007 U.S. Nobel prize winners.

But the private meeting afterward with Gore symbolically stood as an effort to put a cordial end note on the bitterest presidential election in modern history.

The two men had met before, most recently during the funeral of President Gerald Ford. But Monday marked their first private sit-down since 2000.

But the man who was almost president would not speak of the symbolism of the day, nor the content of the conversation.

He smiled, greeted veterans in the press corps, and said Bush was “was very gracious in setting up the meeting” and that the two spoke of global warming the “whole time.”

It was global warming that, in the end, cooled tensions between the one-time opponents.

For Gore, 2007 has been a year of redemption. His documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” won an Oscar and he went on to win a Nobel Peace Prize for helping to bring international attention to climate change.

Bush, meanwhile, has seen his popularity plummet and his presidency shackled to the success and failure of the war in Iraq.

For some time relations between Bush and Gore were cold. The only White House comment following Gore’s wining of the Nobel prize was: “We’re sure the vice president is thrilled.”

But Monday, Bush’s press secretary Dana Perino said that she did not believe there was any “bad blood’’ between Gore and the president.

“I know this president does not harbor any resentments. He never has,” she added.

After the September 11 attacks, Gore publicly referred to Bush as his commander-in-chief.

But the partisan détente did not last long, as Gore became increasingly critical of the president during the Iraq war.

Monday seemed, at minimum, to mark a quieting of the divide.

“The president didn’t make a calculated decision to invite Al Gore to the White House,” Perino said.

“He invited him because he’s one of the Nobel winners,” adding that it was the “gentlemanly thing to do.”
After the meeting, the former vice president strolled calmly out of the White House grounds, hand-in-hand with his wife Tipper, who placed her arm around Gore and repeatedly patted his side for encouragement.

Reporters pressed him as he walked up the street towards a building on 17th.

But Gore would not be drawn, saying only his talk with Bush was “very nice, very cordial,” that it was a “very good and substantive conversation.”

Then he disappeared into the building, a lone bodyguard closing the door behind him.

“It’s remarkable that, in our system of government, we have this tradition, where political rivals can put that behind them and get together and have a good conversation and, all for the good of — in this case, Al Gore is focusing on climate change. The president has had a full seven years, with one more year to go. And I think that they’ll probably have a good meeting.”
