don't have time to elaborate - see for yourself. This guy was the one Able Danger team briefed who decided it was not worthy of inclusion into the 9/11 report or even to the ears of comittee members since it did not fit their conclusions about Atta. THIS NEEDS TO P*O*P!
I read a book about Ramzi Yousef.
The FBI said, of the 75,000 bombings/explosions they investigated, Yousef was the most experienced.
He's said to have been able to take down an airliner using an explosive mix hidden in a contact lens case and a watch.
So writer/reporter Peter Lance was interviewed by Snell:
This was long before Jayna Davis' intriguing book The Third Terrorist which was the object of one of your earlier interviews. She agrees with me on the Yousef-Nichols connection, but we disagree as to Yousef's paymaster. She suggests it was Iraq. I say OBL and furnish proof in the form of evidence showing that Yousef's Manila cell was financed directly by bin Laden via his Saudi brother in law Mohammed Jamal Khalifa.
However, in 2003, in neither case -- OKC or TWA #800 did I have the level of evidence I uncovered in the Spring of 2004. Much of it is in the pages of Cover Up or on my website under FBI #302's.
FP: Can you give us some of the specifics?
Lance: In the weeks prior to the downing of TWA 800 the FBI was alerted by Colombo crime family member Gregory Scarpa Jr. that Ramzi Yousef -- who was in a cell next to Scarpa Jr. at New Yorks Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) -- was arranging to have his al Qaeda cohorts plant a bomb aboard a U.S. airliner. The reason? To provoke a mistrial in the Bojinka case, the first of two federal trials facing Yousef.
Yousef even shared with Scarpa the intricate details of his schematic of the same Casio-nitro bomb trigger device, he had placed aboard PAL #434 in December 1994.
Keep in mind that had the Bojinka plot been fufilled, up to a dozen U.S. jumbo jets would have had their center wing fuel tanks blown apart by Casio watch-nitroglycerine bomb triggers placed in the life jacket pouches of seats located over the tanks.
Yousef's only mistake with PAL #434 was in bomb placement, not bomb design.
Now, in the spring of 1996, weeks prior to Yousefs trial for the Bojinka plot, the bomb maker began sending elaborate notes and bomb schematics to inmate Scarpawho -- unknown to Yousef -- had begun working as an informant for the FBI, and passed them on to his Bureau contacts.
I believe it was mewzilla?
Weldon is on Hannity Radio right now
... foreshadowing ping ...
"I know NNN-NUTHINK!"
part of your question is answered in your #7,the mother of all inaction
Ramzi Yousef (1993 WTC) and Terry Nichols (OKC) crossed paths in the Phillipines. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (9/11)was Yousef's uncle. It is interesting to note that Yousef entered the United States on an Iraqi passport and had been known among the New York fundamentalists as "Rashid, the Iraqi". Another name that could be thrown into the mix is Abdul Rahman Yasin, a U.S. citizen who moved to Iraq in the 1960's and returned to the U.S. in 1992. After the 1993 WTC bombing, Yasin fled to Iraq and was given monthly salary and housing by Saddam Hussein's regime.
Gorelick and OKC:
Thank you for posting those links, ravingnutter. I'm going to steal them :-)
I'm also saving them to Word the way you taught me to do.
Many of my friends have read The Third Terrorist at my insistence . Although they originally thought I was off my rocker, every single one of them came away convinced after reading that book.
Thank you. I wish I Knew better how to archive this stuff.
Hope I didn't miss him; will go listen now.
OF, was "Snell" the name of the other person the caller on the talkshow named in addition to Gorelick?
The plot was uncovered when a Pakistani national, Abdul Hakim Murad, was discovered mixing a bomb in his Manila apartment. He later confessed to Philippine authorities that he was part of a conspiracy to deploy five-man teams to plant bombs on 11 planes operated by United, Delta and Northwest airlines. The plot had included a dry run in which a small bomb was exploded under a seat on a Philippine Airlines flight to Tokyo, killing a Japanese businessman. It was orchestrated by Ramzi Yousef, who was convicted later of plotting the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
This is absurd. It should be clear to lawyers like Gorelick and Schnell that interested parties like themselves shouldn't be serving on the Commission.
Great find and post, Enchante.
Heads up for the rest of you.
A long read, but the last part ties in with what has been exploding all of the 911 traitors this week.
This type of stuff is Hannity's strength...breaking news and information that the MSM just doesn't want to be known...I'm still a Dittohead at heart, but being Hannitized isn't too bad either
Thanks - and the Peter Lance book -- "Cover Up" -- looks very very promising... I'm going to hurry and order from Amazon:
Bump for later . . .
