Skip to comments.There’s New Information About The CIA’s Involvement With Two 9/11 Terrorists

On August 17, Vivek Ramaswamy was interviewed by Tucker Carlson. At the very beginning, Ramaswamy spoke candidly about 9/11: “I didn’t suggest it. I explicitly said that the government absolutely lied to us. The 9/11 Commission lied. The FBI lied to us.”
After dropping that bombshell, Ramaswamy went on to describe a scenario that he says “doesn’t make much sense on the face of it.” He explained how a 42-year-old Saudi Arabian graduate student went to Los Angeles International Airport and, while there, met up with two Saudi nationals who went on to hijack a plane on 9/11, which they then crashed into the Pentagon.
The graduate student claimed the encounter happened “randomly,” after which he “takes them to his house, spends lots of time with them [and] integrates them into them into the community.” On 9/11, the two young terrorists killed themselves and everyone else on board a commercial jet they hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon.
If your interest is piqued by what Vivek had to say, here’s the rest of the story.
The Saudi man who “randomly” encountered the two young terrorists is al-Bayoumi, and it turns out that he was working with Saudi intelligence. Nevertheless, neither the FBI nor the 9/11 Commission found anything suspicious about this “random” encounter or the prolonged contact between al-Bayoumi and the two young terrorists. We learned about this only because, after 20 years, the FBI declassified a tranche of 9/11 files.
The “random” airport encounter happened in January 2000. The terrorists, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf al-Hazmi, arrived in the U.S. after attending an al-Qaeda terrorist summit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, earlier that month.

While in Kuala Lumpur, they were under CIA surveillance, and the CIA tracked them as they entered the U.S.
Once they were in the U.S., the CIA continued to track the two men. In fact, the CIA had set up a unit named Alec Station, to track Al Qaeda and its chief, Osama bin Laden. However, the CIA did not inform the FBI that two terrorists had entered the U.S.
Ramaswamy mentions that the public was made aware of the “random” January 2020 encounter because of declassified FBI documents. However, a second source of information has also surfaced.
This second source is a 21-page document prepared by Don Canestraro, a former high-ranking DEA agent, that was filed in 2021 at the Guantanamo Bay naval base in Cuba, where the cases of the 9/11 defendants are (still!!) being heard. It was on the public docket but went unreported because it was almost completely redacted.

JAMIE GORELIK and her Memo comes to mind on why the FBI wasnt informed
Well, if you consider the track record of the FBI, you can kinda see the point of not telling them things.
Why would this be surprising or unusual? It is the job of intelligence agencies to do exactly that.
The failure was to figure out what they intended, and to stop them before it happened.
It is not like the Texas "Draw Mohammed" attack stopped by a Garland police officer/gunfighter.
In that case, the FBI agent egged on the terrorists, traveled with them, and was supposed to be videoing their attack. After Officer Greg Stevens killed both of the ISIS recruited terrorists in a close range gun fight, the FBI agent fled, but was caught at gunpoint by other members of the security force. He proved his FBI bonifides, and was let go.
Some thoughts/ideas/possibilities that have come to my attention include that the FedGOV was aware of these terroristic personalities, but they got outplayed.
Of course, maybe things went down pretty much as planned by the TLAs.
And someone relied on plausible deniability to escape accountability.
Which, some will insist, is truly implausible.
The more we learn, the more this 9/11 episode is beginning to look (and smell, and feel) like the murders of JFK, RFK, etc.
“Why would this be surprising or unusual? It is the job of intelligence agencies to do exactly that.”
Sorry, but when 2 terrorists infiltrating our country meet an intelligence agent at the airport, and that person provides them with material support, it’s completely logical to conclude the intelligence agent was their HANDLER.
Lol, what network? They just landed in the USA. Any network they had been a part of was outside our borders, so he couldn’t have been working to infiltrate that.
And any network they hooked up with inside our borders, well, he apparently facilitated connecting them with, since they didn’t appear to know anyone else here until he was kind enough to take them in and introduce them around.
Boogieman, you are smarter than that. You infiltrate the network by befriending them and gaining their confidence. It is basic intelligence work, as old as humankind.
I should not assume other people have any understanding of how intelligence gathering works, or of basic intelligence gathering techniques.
“You infiltrate the network by befriending them and gaining their confidence. It is basic intelligence work, as old as humankind.”
Ok, basic intelligence work = meeting 2 guys who are infiltrating a foreign country, at their entrance to that foreign country (which is not your country), and providing material support to help them infiltrate that country, but no, you are really not helping them, well you are helping them, but not because you want to help them, but just because you want them to think that you want to help them. Really you want to stop their plans. Except you never lift a finger to stop their plan.
The speed at which the government presented the list of names & photos of the. hijackers is the tell
Do we even have a CIA anymore? They sure are keeping a low silhouette. They don’t seem to GAS who is coming across the Rio Grande or the Canadian Border.
Vivek is a very limited hangout: He was adamant that of course there wasn’t an inside/domestic involvement.
Here is what the problem is...
Those two hijackers were being tailed by Malaysia on behalf of the CIA.
They were met at the airport by an Iraqi. They stayed at one point in the apartment of an Iranian diplomat (THAT story was quashed early on) and attended the terror summit where a plot (which was successful) to bomb the USS Cole was discussed; the treated plot to bomb the USS The Sullivan’s failed when the dingy with the explosives sank in Port of Aden, Yemen. The explosives, which were shaped, were made under the instruction of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, that is, Gen. Soleimani, who also was involved in the Saudi Hezbollah plot bombing of Khobar Towers.....the Iraqi driver later fled Malaysia back to the Middle East where he was detained by Jordan. In his “pocket litter” was found contact information for people connected to the first WTC bombing in 1993 and the NY Landmarks Plot. Despite this, the Democrats on the 911 Commission omitted him from the main report and he appeared only in the footnotes that the press studiously ignored.
Don Canestraro, sounds familiar, wonder if he is related to the highly questionable guy Vince Cannistraro, who was a US official also frequently quoted by the press in terrorism cases.
Most common sense explanation of Saudi involvement in 9/11 is that they penetrated Al Queda and provided the planning to carry out 9/11 as it brought the USA into direct conflict with Al Queda (an enemy of the royal family).
This also explains how Bush received a call on his private cell # warning him - Prince Bandar was his buddy.
