In a quote in his obituary, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, characterized as “Du Bain’s longtime friend,” calls him a man of “boundless optimism, tremendous buoyancy and patriotism.”

Myron Du Bain head of SRI TWICE ,once during MKULTRA work and second time during psychic warfare research times. Today SRI connected to HAARP.

And what;s this irrelevant Haarp karapola // END COLBY


Why does Colby disrepect the US NAVY ??

NRL Scientists Produce Densest Artificial Ionospheric Plasma Clouds Using HAARP

U.S. Naval Research Laboratory research physicists and engineers from the Plasma Physics Division, working at the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) transmitter facility, Gakona, Alaska, successfully produced a sustained high density plasma cloud in Earth's upper atmosphere.

"Previous artificial plasma density clouds have lifetimes of only ten minutes or less," said Paul Bernhardt, Ph.D., NRL Space Use and Plasma Section. "This higher density plasma 'ball' was sustained over one hour by the HAARP transmissions and was extinguished only after

The third harmonic artificial glow plasma clouds were obtained with HAARP using transmissions at 4.34 megahertz (MHz). The resonant frequency yielded green line (557.7 nanometer emission) with HF on November 12, 2012, between the times of 02:26:15 to 02:26:45 GMT.

These glow discharges in the upper atmosphere were generated as a part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) sponsored Basic Research on Ionospheric Characteristics and Effects (BRIOCHE) campaign to explore ionospheric phenomena and its impact on communications and space weather.

Using the 3.6-megawatt high-frequency (HF) HAARP transmitter, the plasma clouds, or balls of plasma, are being studied for use as artificial mirrors at altitudes 50 kilometers below the natural ionosphere and are to be used for reflection of HF radar and communications signals.

Past attempts to produce electron density enhancements have yielded densities of 4 x 105 electrons per cubic centimeter (cm3) using HF radio transmissions near the second, third, and fourth harmonics of the electron cyclotron frequency. This frequency near 1.44 MHz is the rate that electrons gyrate around the Earth's magnetic field.

The NRL group succeeded in producing artificial plasma clouds with densities exceeding 9 x 105 electrons cm3 using HAARP transmission at the sixth harmonic of the electron cyclotron frequency.

Optical images of the artificial plasma balls show that they are turbulent with dynamically changing density structures. Electrostatic waves generated by the HAARP radio transmissions are thought to be responsible for accelerating electrons to high enough energy to produce the glow discharge in the neutral atmosphere approaching altitudes of nearly 170 kilometers.

The artificial plasma clouds are detected with HF radio soundings and backscatter, ultrahigh frequency (UHF) radar backscatter, and optical imaging systems. Ground measurements of stimulated electromagnetic emissions provide evidence of the strength and frequency for the electrostatic waves that accelerated ambient electrons to ionizing velocities.

The NRL team is working with collaborators at SRI International, University of Alaska Fairbanks, University of Florida, and BAE Systems on this project to synthesize the observations with parametric interactions theory to develop a comprehensive theory of the plasma cloud generation. The next HAARP campaign, scheduled for early 2013, will include experiments to develop denser, more stable ionization clouds.

OMG! DuBain was a friend of the Prince of Darkness! During their lengthy careers he (DuBain, not Satan) and Hilliard were only know to have done business together on one occasion.

Haarp is irrelevant to this discussion.

Dekkers in business with HILLIARD

Florida Air and Krause

Dekkers bragged in an interview that he wanted to start Florida Air as well and Dale Krause would become the general manager with a staff of 160 employees (1). This never happened of course.

Dale Krause had several airlines known as Krause Aviation, KRS Aviation and Venice Jet.

During the hearing of Dekkers, he was asked about the Warrior (N555HA) from Huffman Aviation which Mohammed Atta and Alshehhi abandoned in Miami on December 24, 2000. (2) Currently that airplane is registered to Krause Avaition.

Britannia and Caribe Air are interesting as well. They keep on changing companies, airplanes. It is one huge pile of planes going back and forth among the same players under different names.

The continuous saga of Khashoggi

Hopsicker says that N900SA a.k.a. Cocaine One was once owned by Genesis Aviation. Can't find a verification, however it was owned by Ramy El-Batrawi (4), who was running Genesis Intermedia for Khashoggi as well.

Myron DuBain in business with Adnan Khashoggi

2012, Sander Hicks, 'Slingshot to the Juggernaut', p. 85: "In the mid-2000s, when we were still friends, Battuello often bragged that she was a financial researcher who had been trained inside a “CIA bank.” She had cut her teeth at the United California Ban (UCB), right after former CIA director John McCone served as chairman. “UCB had been on the brink of collapse, under the weight of highly irregular loans,” Battuello told me then. UCB had been known as John McCone’s “piggy bank,” and, with businessman Myron DuBain on the board, it allegedly “attempted to recover monies looted and missing” by Saudi arms dealers, like Adnan Khashoggi and former CIA personnel."





Azima, an Iranian whose family was close to the Shah, owns a cargo airline in Miami and Kansas City, Global International Air, which was part of Oliver North's logistical network, shipping arms—including 23 tons of TOW missiles to Iran—to the Ayatollah, as well as other Iran Contra swag left behind by El-Batrawi’s cargo airline.

Azima's relationship with the CIA goes back to the 1970's. He supplied air and logistical support to EATSCO (Egyptian American Transport and Services Corporation) a company owned by former CIA agents Thomas Clines, Theodore Shackley, and Richard Secord, which was prominently involved in the activities of former CIA agent Edwin Wilson.

Yes Mr. Colby ,when thousands are to be murdered in a false flag event there are public memos released.

Roe vs Wade was decided on the constitutional penumbra of the right to privacy.

Sometimes you have only a penumbra of the weight of the evidence. When you add massive 911 foreknowlege datum

the penumbra becomes the shining light of truth you refuse/cant see.

In other words all you got is speculation, brief business relationships and questionable sources (Battuelo). And Sorry Charlie but the supposed foreknowledge of 9/11 is not directly relevant to Hiliard's business connections. And “weight of the evidence”?? LOL if you think that's in your favor you're really dreaming.

Only 30% of Americans Trust Our Government


Cheney Admits that He Lied about 9/11

Posted by Orangutan. on Fri, 03/08/2013 - 9:34am

What Else Did He Lie About?

The New York Times’ Maureen Daud writes today:

In a documentary soon to appear on Showtime, “The World According to Dick Cheney,” [Cheney said] “I got on the telephone with the president, who was in Florida, and told him not to be at one location where we could both be taken out.” Mr. Cheney kept W. flying aimlessly in the air on 9/11 while he and Lynn left on a helicopter for a secure undisclosed location, leaving Washington in a bleak, scared silence, with no one reassuring the nation in those first terrifying hours.

“I gave the instructions that we’d authorize our pilots to take it out,” he says, referring to the jet headed to Washington that crashed in a Pennsylvania field. He adds: “After I’d given the order, it was pretty quiet. Everybody had heard it, and it was obviously a significant moment.”


When they testified together before the 9/11 Commission, W. and Mr. Cheney
kept up a pretense
that in a previous call, the president had authorized the vice president to give a shoot-down order if needed. But the commission found “no documentary evidence for this call.”

In other words, Cheney pretended that Bush had authorized a shoot-down order, but Cheney now admits that he never did … and Cheney acted as if he was the president on 9/11.

Cheney lied about numerous other facts related to 9/11 as well. For example, Cheney:

  • Falsely claimed that spying on Americans, torture, the Patriot Act, the Afghanistan war, the Iraq war and the “war on terror” were all necessitated by 9/11 … when none of it was true


when they were interviewed by the 911 Commission, as that was one of the stipulations Bush and Cheney insisted on also.

The stipulations they stuck to were

- no oath would be taken

- no recordings of the interview would be taken

- no transcript would be taken by a stenographer

- they would be interviewed together in the oval office

and the 911 Commissioners just rolled over and accepted them.

Yes Cheney and Bush were lying sacks of [faeces] but little [if any] of the excepted narrative of 9/11 is based on their word alone, as your own source pointed out the 9/11 Comm. put the lie to the claim about the shoot down order.

FTR #484 3rd Interview with Daniel Hopsicker

Posted by FTR ⋅ November 16, REALAUDIO

Intro­duc­tion: Flesh­ing out dis­cus­sion in FTR#’s 482, 483, this pro­gram fea­tures more infor­ma­tion from Daniel Hop­sicker, the author of Wel­come to Ter­ror­land: Mohamed Atta and the 9/11 Cover-up in Florida. Mr. Emory con­sid­ers this vol­ume to be one of the most impor­tant books about 9/11. Be sure to check out Daniel’s web­site. In addi­tion to fur­ther dis­cus­sion about the numer­ous evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries run­ning between the Iran/Contra scan­dal and the milieu in which the 9/11 hijack­ers oper­ated in Florida, the pro­gram details the extra­or­di­nary back­ground of the asso­ciates of Wally Hilliard, Rudi Dekkers and Arne Kruithof. Hilliard’s asso­ciate Mark Shu­bin has, as Mr. Emory says, more con­nec­tions than a switch­board, includ­ing con­nec­tions to Ken­neth Good, an asso­ciate of Neil Bush (the President’s brother) in the crim­i­nal activ­i­ties sur­round­ing the Sil­ver­ado Sav­ings and Loan in Col­orado. Much of the pro­gram cen­ters on the pro­found Ger­man links to the hijacker milieu in Florida, includ­ing Arne Kruithof’s asso­ci­a­tion with Pas­cal Schreier. Daniel notes that some of Atta’s Ger­man asso­ciates in Florida were the sons and daugh­ters of promi­nent Ger­man industrialists.

Pro­gram High­lights Include: The links of Kruithof’s part­ner Glenn Good­man to air units appar­ently involved in the Iran/Contra-related drug traf­fic; Jeb Bush’s endorse­ment of Dis­cover Air, one of Hilliard’s bogus air­lines; Pas­cal Schreier’s wife’s pur­chase of another of the strange avi­a­tion schools through which the 9/11 hijack­ers tran­sited; Jeb Bush’s role in the spir­it­ing away(to Wash­ing­ton, D.C.) of the Venice Police Department’s files on Rudi Dekkers; the remark­able story of Hilliard pilot P.J. Kahn—licensed to fly reg­u­larly into Havana, Cuba; alle­ga­tions that Rudi Dekkers is Ger­man, not Dutch; Dekkers asso­ciate Rick Boehlke’s work for a wealthy Ger­man indus­tri­al­ist named Folker, who was buy­ing up large amounts of prop­erty in the Pacific North­wes; Iran/Contra oper­a­tive Diet­rich Reinhardt’s busi­ness asso­ci­a­tion with Rudi Dekkers; the unusual cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the crash of Arne Kruithof’s plane—it was com­pacted before the FAA could deter­mine the cause of the crash!.

1. The pro­gram begins by review­ing some of Wally Hilliard’s back­ground and, in par­tic­u­lar, his stew­ard­ship of Huff­man Avi­a­tion, the flight school through which sev­eral of the 9/11 hijack­ers infil­trated the United States. (The descrip­tions for FTR#’s 482, 483 con­tain mate­r­ial about some of Hilliard’s back­ground and activities.)

2. Fur­ther devel­op­ing the extra­or­di­nary, cloak-and-dagger milieu in which Hilliard oper­ated, the pro­gram sets forth the col­or­ful espi­onage back­ground of Hilliard asso­ciate Mark Shu­bin. “Mark Shu­bin was Hilliard’s busi­ness part­ner in a num­ber of air­planes, includ­ing a $35 mil­lion Gulf­stream. Shu­bin lived in Miami. We had heard a num­ber of dif­fer­ent sto­ries about him, each more lurid than the next. . . . The true story was that Shubin’s father was indeed a KGB Colonel impris­oned after being caught by his own gov­ern­ment spy­ing for the United States. He and his fam­ily, includ­ing young Mark, had been ‘traded out’ of Rus­sia in the spy exchange involv­ing Fran­cis Gary Pow­ers, the pilot of a U-2 shot down over Rus­sia in a famous inci­dent in 1960.”

(Wel­come to Ter­ror­land Mohamed Atta & the 9–11 Cover-Up in Florida; by Daniel Hop­sicker; Mad­cow Press [HC]; Copy­right 2004 by Daniel Hop­sicker; ISBN 0–9706591-6–4; pp. 262–264)

3. “After set­tling in Amer­ica, the KGB Colonel’s son grew up to become a CIA pilot fly­ing U-2’s over Rus­sia, where his native Russ­ian lan­guage skills proved use­ful. We were already well into spy lore, and we’d barely sat down. ‘Wally was manip­u­lated by some­body with a lot of power,’ said Mark Shu­bin. ‘He was black­mailed. Rudi was the one per­son who knew what was going on.’” (Ibid.; p. 264.)

4. “Shu­bin had quite a bit of busi­ness with Wally Hilliard, we learned. He had a com­pany, Sky Bus, Inc., whose planes were shared in com­mon with Hilliard’s Plane 1 Leas­ing to Sky Bus between March and August 2000. Plane 1 Leas­ing remained an ‘owner of sorts.’ Two of the planes that flowed from Hilliard’s Plane 1 Leas­ing, tail num­bers N11UN and N111UN, were listed as being owned by both Plane 1 Leas­ing and Sky Bus. We thought the ‘UN’ des­ig­na­tion on the tail num­ber might be a clue. We were right. We dis­cov­ered Shu­bin had estab­lished a com­pany called ‘Inter­na­tional Diplo­matic Courier Ser­vices,’ on August 28, 2001.” (Idem.)

5. “We asked an avi­a­tion busi­ness owner about the planes with ‘UN’ num­bers. Coy Jacob said the last let­ters in an ‘N’ num­ber are picked by the indi­vid­ual plane owner. So Shu­bin and Hilliard’s two planes either flew for the UN or were try­ing to look like they did. Then we rec­og­nized the name of another busi­ness part­ner of Shubin’s, a man who gained a bit of fame dur­ing the Sav­ings and Loan Scan­dal of a decade ago. Mark Shu­bin was in busi­ness with the noto­ri­ous Ken Good.” (Idem.)

6. Next, the pro­gram high­lights the activ­i­ties of one of Hilliard asso­ciate Mark Shubin’s partners—Ken Good. Good had been one of Neil Bush’s cronies in the Sil­ver­ado Sav­ings and Loan deba­cle. (For more about the Sil­ver­ado case, see—among other programs—Miscellaneous Archive Show M43—avail­able from Spit­fire, as well as FTR#249.) “Ken­neth Good was a big part of the Sil­ver­ado Sav­ings and Loan col­lapse. He was in busi­ness with Neil Bush. In fact, Ken Good had been so clearly a Bush fam­ily retainer that it strained credulity to think that Shubin—and Wally Hilliard—now were not sim­i­larly con­nected. In 1983, Neil Bush, Pres­i­dent George H.W. Bush’s son, and our cur­rent president’s brother, became part­ners in an oil ven­ture with Ken Good and William Wal­ters, a Den­ver devel­oper.” (Ibid.; pp. 264–265.)

7. “Two years later, Bush joined the board of Sil­ver­ado, a Den­ver S&L to which Wal­ters and Good already owed more than $100 mil­lion that was never to see the light of day again. Neil Bush received a $100,000 ‘gift’ from Good, as well as other major finan­cial assis­tance. Yet he was press­ing Silverado’s management—without men­tion­ing these favors—to let Good off the hook on his debts. There was no con­flict of inter­est. It was all just a coin­ci­dence.” (Ibid.; p. 265.)

8. “By the late sum­mer of 1988, exam­in­ers made ready to seize the com­pany. But then they got a phone call from the White House, accord­ing to TIME mag­a­zine. The elec­tion was too close; Silverado’s col­lapse would inevitably have spot­lighted the Repub­li­can candidate’s son, whose con­duct had cer­tainly been uneth­i­cal and pos­si­bly ille­gal. So the bank board’s seizure of Sil­ver­ado was delayed. When Sil­ver­ado finally col­lapsed, it cost U.S. tax­pay­ers over $1 bil­lion. But it hadn’t been anybody’s fault. . .” (Idem.)

9. “The Hous­ton Post’s Peter Brew­ton, who broke the CIA-Mob con­nec­tion to the Sav­ings and Loan Scan­dal, said Neil Bush’s Sil­ver­ado part­ners ‘all had con­nec­tions to indi­vid­u­als or S&L’s in Texas that did busi­ness with orga­nized crime fig­ures or CIA oper­a­tives. Good is one Sil­ver­ado bor­rower who got a large loan at a Texas S&L con­nected to (Her­man) Beebe, allegedly con­nected to the under­world.’ Her­man Beebe was an inti­mate, as they say, of New Orleans ‘Mafia King­fish,’ Car­los Mar­cello. So Ken Good hung with both the Bushes and the Mob. Ken Good cost Amer­i­cans over $132 mil­lion, just from loans from Sil­ver­ado.” (Idem.)

10. More about Good’s oper­a­tions with Shu­bin

and the extra­or­di­nary irreg­u­lar­i­ties that char­ac­ter­ized the busi­nesses through which Atta and asso­ciates infil­trated the United States. Again, note the numer­ous evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries run­ning in the direc­tion of the Iran-Contra affair. “ . . . Shu­bin and Good’s part­ner­ship seemed to share a lot in com­mon with Hilliard-Dekkers and Richard Boehlke’s. Good’s air­line, Express One Inter­na­tional, sup­plied both air­craft and crews to Sky Bus, the way Boehlke had for Dekkers and Hilliard. And Shubin’s Fort Laud­erdale based car­rier was soon-to-be-bankrupt, a fate which Atta’s Florida asso­ciates seem to face with an awful reg­u­lar­ity. Good’s Express One—drat the luck—will itself soon be bank­rupt, and in bank­ruptcy pro­ceed­ings the company’s lead­ing lessor will be revealed to be Finova Cap­i­tal, A Cana­dian com­pany ‘linked’ top the CIA, and which also financed Iran Contra-era pro­pri­etary air­lines like Richard Secord’s South­ern Air Trans­port.” (Ibid.; p. 266.)

11. The aura of inter­na­tional intrigue sur­round­ing Hilliard, Dekkers and com­pany is height­ened by dis­cus­sion of one of Hilliard’s pilots—Pakistani P.J. Kahn. “ . . . P.J. Kahn, we knew, had crashed one of Wally’s Lear jets in Sep­tem­ber of 2002, with eight doc­tors on board. All eight needed treat­ment. Other than that, he was a mys­tery, a Pak­istani national who had some­how ingra­ti­ated him­self with south­ern Florida’s movers and shak­ers. ‘Hilliard signed a con­tract with P.J. Kahn, who bought the old Air Florida Cer­tifi­cate,’ said an avi­a­tion observer. ‘P.J. Kahn moved in with Mr. Hilliard’s back­ing. He’s an Arab oper­a­tor with a license to fly (an air­line). Kahn’s got a con­tract with the U.S. Trea­sury For­eign Assets Con­trol to fly directly to Havana. He has spe­cial per­mis­sion as an autho­rized car­rier to fly direct to Havana.’ We were puz­zled. For­eign nation­als aren’t allowed to own U.S. air car­ri­ers. Also, U.S. air car­ri­ers aren’t sup­posed to be fly­ing to Havana. Puz­zle­ment turned to incredulity when we heard from sev­eral peo­ple that P.J. Kahn had dis­ap­peared. ‘I heard he has to flee the coun­try for some rea­son,’ shrugged an avi­a­tion insider in Naples, who would say no more.” (Ibid.; p. 267.)

12. In FTR#483, we exam­ined Hilliard’s and Dekkers’ Florida Air, an air­line that was still­born from a busi­ness stand­point. Despite the fact that it was appar­ently lit­tle more than a dummy com­pany, it received the endorse­ment of then Florida Sec­re­tary of State Kather­ine Har­ris, who presided over the theft of the 2000 Florida vote. Another of Hilliard’s bogus airlines—Discover Air—also received a celebrity endorse­ment from a big-name Florida politi­cian, Gov­er­nor Jeb Bush (another of the President’s broth­ers). “ . . . Hilliard’s lat­est ill-starred avi­a­tion enter­prise also offered com­muter ser­vice under the name Dis­cover Air. After not one ticket was sold on its inau­gural route, it went—almost immediately—out of busi­ness. Notwith­stand­ing this uniquely dis­mal record, for rea­sons unknown, Florida polit­i­cal lumi­nary Gov. Jeb Bush stepped for­ward to tour its facil­i­ties and praise its com­pletely un-praiseworthy man­age­ment.” (Ibid.; p. 328.)

13. Jeb Bush also was present when the FBI carted-off all of the Venice (Florida) police department’s files on Huff­man Avi­a­tion. “ . . . We wanted to know if Dekkers had any local ‘pri­ors.’ But it made Sergeant Marty Tre­anor sigh. Then he started to say some­thing, thought bet­ter of it, and sighed again. He said he couldn’t tell us if Dekkers had been in any trou­ble in Venice, because all of his files were gone. ‘Gone?’ ‘The FBI took all our files, every­thing. They loaded the files right out­side this win­dow,’ said Tre­anor, indi­cat­ing a park­ing lot out­side the sta­tion, ‘into two Ryder trucks, then drove them right onto a C-130 mil­i­tary cargo plane at the Sara­sota air­port, which took off for Wash­ing­ton with Jeb Bush aboard.’ We will come back to visit the ques­tion of the Gov­er­nor of Florida’s national secu­rity respon­si­bil­i­ties. The impor­tant point was that tak­ing files was a lot dif­fer­ent than copy­ing them. The FBI wasn’t tak­ing any chances.” (Ibid.; p. 31.)

14. Return­ing to a sub­ject cov­ered in—among other pro­grams—FTR#477, the broad­cast fleshes out Atta and company’s Ger­man con­nec­tions. Through­out the milieu through which the 9/11 hijack­ers infil­trated, one finds Ger­mans. Hilliard’s and Dekkers’ part­ner (in Florida Air) Rick Boehlke worked for a wealthy Ger­man indus­tri­al­ist who was buy­ing large amounts of prop­erty in the Pacific North­west. (It is worth not­ing in this regard that White Suprema­cists have long focused on the Pacific North­west as an area that could be turned into “an Aryan home­land.” Is it pos­si­ble that Boehlke’s Ger­man bene­fac­tor was involved with such a scheme? Note, also, that an acquain­tance of Dekkers alleged that he told her he was Ger­man, not Dutch. “Who had Rudi Dekkers and co. been work­ing for? We didn’t know any­one you could just walk up to and ask. We maybe got a clue from Mike Pick­ett, the avi­a­tion exec­u­tive who had watched Rick Boehlke with the same amaze­ment with which avi­a­tion pro­fes­sion­als in Florida watched Dekkers. ‘When Boehlke came in he was just a restau­ra­teur at the Gig Har­bor air­port,’ he said. ‘Then he became the Gen­eral Man­ager for a Ger­man named Folker, a Ger­man indus­tri­al­ist buy­ing up all the land in that area.’ [Empha­sis added.] More Ger­mans. Jes­sica Daley, an attrac­tive air­line pro­fes­sional in her late twen­ties, worked for Rick Boehlke at Har­bor Air and later trans­ferred and worked for Rudi Dekkers at Florida Air. While Har­bor Air was going under, Boehlke told Jes­sica to fly down to Florida and see Rudi. ‘When I walked into his (Rudi’s) office he was yelling and scream­ing at peo­ple,’ she recalled. ‘He said, ‘Peo­ple call me a bas­tard Nazi because I’m loud and I’m Ger­man. And I’m very demand­ing.’ Dekkers told her he was Ger­man, not Dutch, Jes­sica said.” (Ibid.; pp. 233–234.)

15. Arne Kruithof—the other “Magic Dutch Boy” at whose schools many of the 9/11 hijack­ers trained—also had a Ger­man con­nec­tion. The pro­gram focuses on Kruithof’s Ger­man asso­ciate Pas­cal Schreier. Schreier and Kruithof had a busi­ness in Ger­many called “Avi­a­tion Aspi­ra­tions.” Author Hop­sicker spec­u­lates about the pos­si­ble role of Avi­a­tion Aspi­ra­tions in get­ting trainees from Europe to the U.S. “Spec­u­la­tion about [Arne] Kruithof cen­tered on his rela­tion­ship with Rudi Dekkers, and also to another part­ner, Pas­cal Schreier. A Ger­man national liv­ing in Munich, Schreier and Kruithof had a co-venture, called Avi­a­tion Aspi­ra­tions. Accord­ing to its lit­er­a­ture the com­pany pro­vided finan­cial assis­tance and a ‘Men­tor Pro­gramme.’ About their ‘men­tor­ing pro­gramme,’ the company’s lit­er­a­ture said: ‘The help is both finan­cial and prac­ti­cal. We now pro­vide one-to-one prac­ti­cal assis­tance from expe­ri­enced Pro­fes­sional Pilots (our Men­tors) whom we have estab­lished through­out the world.’ ‘Men­tor’ sounded a lot like ‘han­dler’ to us. Were we being too cyn­i­cal? French News­pa­per Le Monde had reported that Osama bin Laden’s brother Yeslam sent stu­dent pilots to Venice for train­ing. Noth­ing more about this mech­a­nism has sur­faced. Was Avi­a­tion Aspi­ra­tions the vehi­cle that had been used to insert Yeslam bin Laden’s pilots into the Venice flight schools?” (Ibid.; pp. 294–295.)

16. Schreier’s wife took over another of the highly unusual “flight schools” through which many of the hijack­ers passed. That school—Professional Aviation—was another of the schools at which Atta had enrolled. “Schreier’s job was recruit­ing flight stu­dents from his Munich base. Had he recruited in Ham­burg? We didn’t know. We did know that the company’s motto was ‘Bet­ter train­ing because we care.’ Who was Pas­cal Schre

ier, and why did he care? ‘Pas­cal Schreier has an infe­ri­or­ity com­plex.’ Venice Air­port insider Max Burge told us. ‘He’s 6’2” blond, good-looking, Ger­man, and you could see it in him. Rudi And Arne, too.’ We didn’t get to meet him, but we learned a few inter­est­ing tid­bits to share. ‘Pas­cal Schreier is mar­ried to a lady who took over the 135 School at Port Char­lotte,’ said one avi­a­tion source.” (Ibid.; p. 295.)

17. “Pascal’s wife, San­dra K. Hamouda, who was half-French and half-Tunisian, now owned the flight school in Punta Gorda once known as Pro­fes­sional Avi­a­tion, the one which went bank­rupt in Feb­ru­ary 2001, while Mohamed Atta and all those Tunisians were there. Now it appeared that they’d kept the school in the fam­ily.” (Idem.)

18. It appears that Schreier, Hilliard and Dekkers were also in busi­ness together. “Later, we learned that the new own­ers of Huff­man Avi­a­tion were from the largest flight school in the Nether­lands, which used to train up in Lake­land, Florida. It was near Rot­ter­dam, the city from which Arne Kruithof hailed. Pas­cal Schreier was also appar­ently involved with Wally and Rudi’s failed avi­a­tion ven­tures. The true name of their flop air­line, which flew as Florida Air, was Sun­rise Air­lines. And Pas­cal Schreier owned a com­pany called Florida Sun­rise with an address at the Venice Air­port. It was too close for coin­ci­dence.” (Idem.)



21. Sup­ple­ment­ing dis­cus­sion in FTR#483, the pro­gram sets forth the unusual cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the crash of Kruithof’s plane. Recall that Dekkers was also in a near-fatal air crash at around the same time. Dekkers’ heli­copter went down when he was en route to a con­fronta­tion with Wally Hilliard over their busi­ness part­ner­ships. The wreck­age of Kruithof’s plane was com­pacted before the FAA could exam­ine it—a highly irreg­u­lar set of cir­cum­stances. “ . . . There were sus­pi­cious irreg­u­lar­i­ties in the offi­cial inves­ti­ga­tion into Kruithof’s plane crash that observers at the air­port said had never before hap­pened. With­out any find­ing on the cause of the crash. . . before inves­ti­ga­tors were even able to get a look at the downed the plane, the wreck­age was gone. Things like that weren’t sup­posed to hap­pen. ‘Even though the FAA hadn’t yet deter­mined the cause for the crash,’ said one shocked observer, ‘the plane was almost imme­di­ately dragged off to be com­pacted.’ He looked stunned. ‘That’s not just irreg­u­lar. It’s highly irreg­u­lar. We’re all kind of won­der­ing just what the hell’s going on.’” (Ibid.; pp. 293–294.)

22. Kruithof’s busi­ness part­ner Glenn Good­man was another of the highly inter­est­ing peo­ple in the Venice/Naples area. “ . . . Kruithof’s plane crash also threw a spot­light on the pilot of the downed plane, Glenn Good­man, the pilot at the con­trols of the downed Beech D-18. Good­man and Kruithof were part­ners in Arne’s flight school at the Venice Air­port, just like Rudi and Wally were in theirs. . .” (Ibid.; p. 295.)

23. “ . . . Kruithof and Good­man formed ‘Florida Flight Main­te­nance,’ in July of 2000, just as Mohamed Atta and Mar­wan began train­ing at the Venice Air­port. Good­man also owned a DC-3 that sat at the Venice Air­port for two years before being donated to an air museum in July, 2000, called the ‘Florida Mil­i­tary Avi­a­tion Museum.’ This was a major red flag. Donat­ing planes and then get­ting them back from air muse­ums is a ruse which has been used to pro­vide planes over the years to a rich and col­or­ful crop of elite deviants with intel­li­gence con­nec­tions.” (Idem.)

24. Once again, we find evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries run­ning in the direc­tion of the Iran/Contra scan­dal. “A mil­i­tary flight museum was the same venue used by the CIA in the past to ‘lib­er­ate’ mil­i­tary planes and heli­copters in var­i­ous sor­did para­mil­i­tary schemes. It was being used right next door in Char­lotte County, we remem­bered, to ‘re-assign’ 23 heli­copters to new bil­lets. Also trou­bling was the fact that as Goodman’s com­pany was closed invol­un­tar­ily by the State of Florida on Sep­tem­ber 21, 2001. Was it’s clo­sure 9/11-related? [Empha­sis added.]” (Idem.)

25. “Known as N90079, Inc., the com­pany was named for the ‘N-Number’ of the business’s sole asset, the aging DC-3. Because the com­pany never filed an annual report, much about it remains a mys­tery. When we ran the plane’s reg­is­tra­tion, or ‘N’ num­ber, we dis­cov­ered that the plane’s col­or­ful his­tory has included long stints in exotic locales. It spent quite a bit of time, for exam­ple, back in the 80’s, in Manuel Noriega’s Panama. The DC-3 could be traced back to an infa­mous South Florida Cus­toms air­plane ‘bone yard,’ where ‘planes with check­ered pasts’ sit in a fenced stor­age yard, like the sis­ter ship to the famous C-123 shot down over Nicaragua in 1986 with Eugene Hasen­fus aboard. Prob­a­bly just a coin­ci­dence.” (Ibid.; p. 296.)

26. In FTR#’s 482, 483, we exam­ined the highly irreg­u­lar oper­a­tions out of Char­lotte County air­port. This pro­gram high­lights still more irreg­u­lar­i­ties around the Char­lotte air­port. Again, note that the milieu in which Jamie Hill and com­pany oper­ated is also con­nected to the milieu of the Iran-Contra affair. “ . . . Jamie Hill had been a tar­get of the Char­lotte County Sheriff’s inves­ti­ga­tion, we’d learned. ‘He’s got seven heli­copters sit­ting on his prop­erty today that don’t belong to him,’ one local law enforce­ment source stated. ‘He’s got mil­lions of dol­lars of air­craft parts with the num­bers filed out.’ Jamie Hill’s part­ner in the com­pany strongly sus­pected of hav­ing been a con­duit for the dis­ap­pear­ance of 23 heli­copters from the County Sheriff’s Air Wing turns out to be another noto­ri­ous covert oper­a­tive with a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence at the Char­lotte County Air­port. Diet­rich Reinhardt’s name, which could have been lifted straight out of tran­scripts of the Iran Con­tra Hear­ings, had also been linked with Barry Seal’s infa­mous Mena, Arkansas cocaine smug­gling.” (Ibid.; p. 126.)

27. “We dis­cov­ered that one of Reinhardt’s com­pa­nies active at the Char­lotte County Air­port, Caribe Air, had been doing busi­ness with Rudi Dekkers’ Huff­man Avi­a­tion. Caribe Air was an espe­cially noto­ri­ous CIA pro­pri­etary whose past included ‘blem­ishes’ like hav­ing all its air­craft seized at Mena, Arkansas after gov­ern­ment pros­e­cu­tors accused the com­pany of using its planes to trans­port cocaine worth bil­lions of col­lars into the U.S.” (Ibid.; pp. 126–127.)

28. “It was begin­ning to feel like Old Home Week in Char­lotte County. Reinhardt—apparently not con­tent with the dis­tinc­tion of being busi­ness part­ners with a man sus­pected of mak­ing heli­copters disappear—was linked to the man who trained both pilots who crashed air­lin­ers into the Twin Tow­ers of the World Trade Cen­ter. Dekkers had had a ‘main­te­nance con­tract’ with Reinhardt’s com­pany. This is no doubt just another freak coin­ci­dence. Why would Diet­rich Rein­hardt know Rudi Dekkers? . . .” (Ibid.; p. 127.)

29. “Rein­hardt had also oper­ated the now-defunct St. Lucia Air­ways, referred to as a CIA pro­pri­etary com­pany in a Sen­ate intel­li­gence com­mit­tee report. Reports in The Wash­ing­ton Post linked St. Lucia planes to the deliv­ery of Hawk and TOW mis­siles to Tehran, Iran in

1985 and 1986 as part of the covert arms-for-hostages deal between the United States and Iran. But busy guys like Diet­rich are hard to get on the phone. The Post reported, ‘Attempts to reach Rein­hardt by tele­phone in Frank­furt, Ger­many, were unsuc­cess­ful. His tele­phone had been dis­con­nected.’ Was Diet­rich Rein­hardt Ger­man?” (Idem.)

Azima's relationship with the CIA goes back to the 1970's. He supplied air and logistical support to EATSCO (Egyptian American Transport and Services Corporation) a company owned by former CIA agents Thomas Clines, Theodore Shackley, and Richard Secord, which was prominently involved in the activities of former CIA agent Edwin Wilson.

Herald-Tribune: Sarasota family had 'many connections' to 9/11 terror attacks

Posted by Orangutan. on Wed, 04/17/2013 - 6:42pm

Herald Tribune - Sarasota Florida

By Michael Pollick

Published: Tuesday, April 16, 2013

The Al-Hijji family abruptly left this home at 4224 Escondito Circle in Prestancia, Sarasota at least a week before the attacks on Sept. 11,2001. - HERALD-TRIBUNE ARCHIVE

Contrary to previous statements made by the FBI to the news media, a family living in the south Sarasota neighborhood of Prestancia had “many connections” to the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, according to newly released FBI documents.

The family, Anoud and Abdulazziz al-Hijji, had links to 9/11 hijackers — including Mohamed Atta and Marwan al-Shehhi, who trained at a Venice flight school in preparation for the assault on New York and Washington, D.C., that killed 2,996.

Anoud al-Hijji is the daughter of Esam Ghazzawi, a powerful Saudi businessman with long ties to the Saudi royal family. The al-Hijjis have denied any involvement or relationship with the 9/11 hijackers.

But the family abruptly left the Prestancia home that they had lived in for six years roughly a week before the 9/11 attacks, leaving behind clothes, food, children's toys and other living essentials.

In the newly declassified documents, the FBI's Southwest Florida Domestic Security Task Force reported that the exit was done “quickly and suddenly.” The family left no forwarding address at the time, according to Realtors and property managers who were interviewed by the federal agency.

After being alerted to the family's hasty exit by nearby residents and investigating the circumstances and participants, the FBI said it concluded that the family had no connection to the terrorists.

“At no time did the FBI develop evidence that connected the family members to any of the 9/11 hijackers,” Steven E. Ibison, the FBI special agent in charge of the agency's Tampa field office, said in a Sept. 15, 2011, statement made in response to media questioning about the al-Hijjis at that time.

But portions of the FBI documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act by BrowardBulldog — a journalism organization led by former Miami Herald reporter Dan Christensen, who has been investigating the attacks — seem to directly contradict those statements.

“Further investigation of the (name deleted) family revealed many connections between the (name deleted) and individuals associated with the terror attacks on 9/11/2001,” a portion of declassified FBI documents state.

The agency redacted many of the names in the 31 pages released under exemptions that protect people's names in law enforcement records. But it is clear who the subjects are because the documents specifically cite the al-Hijjis' residence, which was 4224 Escondito Circle in Sarasota's “Estates at Prestancia” development at the time FBI agents were investigating.

Though the FBI stands by its statements, the documents renew questions — previously raised by former Florida governor and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham and others — that the U.S. has not fully disclosed the extent of its knowledge about links between the 9/11 attacks and Saudi officials.

A majority of the terrorists who orchestrated and participated in the attacks were Saudis.

The story of the Prestancia home came to the fore again this week because of a story by BrowardBulldog. Christensen and his organization has been litigating with the federal government in an effort to obtain classified FBI reports that illustrate the relationship between the al-Hijjis and the 9/11 terrorists.

Abdulazziz al-Hijji could not be reached for comment, but in email correspondence with The (London) Daily Telegraph a year ago, he strongly denied any involvement in 9/11.

“I have neither relation nor association with any of those bad people/criminals and the awful crime they did,” al-Hijji wrote.


Among the more explosive revelations in the BrowardBulldog story is that an unidentified “family member” — purportedly of the al-Hijji family — was a flight student at Venice's Huffman Aviation, according to the FBI documents marked “secret” but with the word since crossed through.

Huffman gained notoriety in the wake of 9/11 as the place where suicide hijackers Atta and al-Shehhi learned to fly. Those two men were in the cockpits when jets slammed into the World Trade Center towers.

The story also references documents detailing a third person on a redacted FBI list as having “lived with flight students at Huffman Aviation” and being “arrested numerous times by the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.”

The BrowardBulldog noted that the recently released FBI documents disclosed nothing about Wissam Hammoud, an al-Hijji friend who is now serving a 21-year prison sentence for weapons violations and for attempting to kill a federal agent.

Hammoud, 47, and an “international terrorist associate,” according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, told investigators after his 2004 arrest that al-Hijji may have known some of the hijackers and that he considered Osama Bin Laden “a hero.” Though he acknowledged knowing Hammoud well, al-Hijji denied knowing 9/11 participants or revering Bin Laden in an interview with Christensen last year, the BrowardBulldog reported.

Hammoud was arrested in Sarasota County during July 1995 for driving with a suspended license, according to County Clerk of the Court records. He was subsequently given probation and the case was closed.


Though much about the allegations and evidence connecting the home in Prestancia to the 9/11 attacks is not new, the matter has lingered because of a lack of closure.

Questions remain, too, for Pat Gallagher, who was among the Prestancia residents who contacted the FBI in the aftermath of the terror attacks after “suspicious activity” — the agency's phrase — at the al-Hijji residence at Escondito Circle, including the family's sudden exit.

Though the house has since been sold twice, at the time it was owned by Ghazzawi, an importer and exporter whose circles included the Bin Laden Group.

Ghazzawi's influence also extends to his children. His 42-year-old son, Adel, is a board member of the New York-based think tank EastWest Institute, which counts the likes of Michael Chertoff, a director of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush and co-author of the Patriot Act, and retired Gen. James L. Jones, a former national security adviser to President Barack Obama, among its members.

The younger Ghazzawi operates Conektas, a firm in the United Arab Emirates that helps multinational companies establish businesses in the Middle East.

Abdulazziz al-Hijji was completing undergraduate work at the University of South Florida when he lived in the Ghazzawi house. He went on to receive a bachelor's in computer science.

FBI records indicate that he took a job after graduation with the Saudi oil concern Aramco in London, though he no longer appears to be working there, BrowardBulldog reported.

Interviewed by the FBI, Anoud al-Hijji said the family's flight was a “regularly scheduled departure.”

But the FBI conducted a substantial investigation centered on the al-Hijji household.

Six weeks after 9/11, agents found that Prestancia's digital scan system had picked up at least two license plates registered to Atta and Ziad Jarrah, another 9/11 terrorist, who had allegedly visited the Escondito Circle house in the months leading up to the attacks. The men purportedly identified themselves to security guards.

But the declassified FBI records say the agency “appears not to have obtained the vehicle entry records of the gated community.”

Graham — the former head of the Senate Intelligence Committee and chairman of the joint congressional inquiry into U.S. intelligence gathering surrounding the terrorist attacks — said he remains convinced that the federal government at several levels has failed to divulge all it knows about 9/11 and its Saudi connections.

He contends that 28 pages of a final report to Congress were censored because they dealt with the Saudi role in 9/11.


The U.S. and Saudi Arabia have had a special and mutually beneficial relationship since 1957, when the Saudi king made a state visit to President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

King Saud visited the U.S. with an entourage of at least 60, one of whom appears to have been Esam Ghazzawi's father, Abbas.

At the time, Eisenhower agreed to sell Saudi Arabia up to $500 million worth of weapons in exchange for permission to maintain an airbase in Saudi territory.

The deal did not gel overnight. Abbas Ghazzawi apparently worked on it, after flying into New York from Madrid on Jan. 25, 1957, according to a passenger list kept by U.S. officials. The elder Ghazzawi was accompanied by three other Saudis, including a man who would later serve as Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the U.S., Faisal al-Hegelan.

The Ghazzawi family's ties to America grew stronger years later when, in 1970, 17-year-old Esam Ghazzawi married American Deborah G. Browning. Their first child, Adel, was born that year on Nov. 19.

The family later established what has been a long presence in Southwest Florida, through the purchase of a pair of bayfront lots on Longboat Key's Putter Lane. Neighbors had little interaction with the man they referred to as “the Arab.”

“That's what we called him,” said former neighbor Betty Blair. “We didn't know his name. All we knew was his kids were in camp so he came for the summer. Two little boys.”

Esam and Deborah Ghazzawi bought the Prestancia home in September 1995, records show.

Five months earlier, Anoud Ghazzawi married al-Hijji. He was 19 and she was 17, their Sarasota County marriage license shows.

While here, they made an effort to blend in, driving popular cars like a Volkswagen Beetle, a Jeep Grand Cherokee and a Chevy Tahoe.

But they did not stay completely under the collective radar. FBI documents reference a dispute with the Prestancia Community Association over unpaid homeowner dues.

The Ghazzawis were frequent visitors to the al-Hijji household, neighbors, acquaintances and an attorney familiar with the case said.

Carla DiBello knew the al-Hijjis and met Esam Ghazzawi on several occasions. “I remember him being very eccentric. He loved going to big dinners and always had a lot of security,” said DiBello, who now lives in Beverly Hills and is in charge of developing business for Kim Kardashian Productions.

As for how Esam Ghazzawi made his living, “all I know about him was that he worked for the King of Saudi from what Anoud told me, but she was always very secretive about what her dad did for them,” DiBello said.

Ghazzawi is still active in business in the Middle East, and sits on the board of the London subsidiary of EIRAD, which makes connections for global firms.

When United Parcel Service wanted to do business in Saudi Arabia, for instance, EIRAD became its handler.

When the al-Hijjis left Southwest Florida for Saudi Arabia “on or about 08/27/2001,” according to the FBI documents, they flew first to Washington, where they met Esam Ghazzawi.

When Ghazzawi left the U.S., Adel Ghazzawi apparently took over the family's affairs here.

It was Adel, then 30 and an American citizen, who tried to get a Prestancia lien lifted so the house could be sold. The lien came after the series of brushes with Prestancia's community association.

“The HOA had great difficulties with them,” said Jone Weist, at that time property manager for much of Prestancia. “It was nothing criminal, but this is not a neighborhood where you let the grass grow for a month.”

Problems mounted when the family departed in 2001, leaving a large mound of garbage at the curb. Eventually, a foreclosure lawsuit was filed.

When not helping his family, Adel Ghazzawi worked with Conektas, a company that “assists multinationals in developing synergistic relationships with credible partners to successfully penetrate and establish solid businesses in the Middle East region.”

“Adel has a vast wealth of business, family and personal relationships within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” his biography reads.

On the EastWest website, Ghazzawi says he has raised more than $1 billion for Middle Eastern projects.

The family ultimately settled the homeowner case and sold the house in September 2003 for $440,000, to Joel Schemmel, records show. Schemmel has since sold the property, according to the county.


Because Floridians made up his former political constituency and many of the 9/11 terrorists lived in the Sunshine State just prior to the attacks, Graham has made it a personal mission to delve into the connections between the attacks and Saudi Arabia.

Graham, 76, says that neither he, nor his staff, ever received any information regarding the alleged activities in Prestancia from the FBI or other law enforcement.

The FBI contends there is a good reason for that.

“At no time did the FBI develop evidence that connected the family members to any of the 9/11 hijackers,” Ibison said in 2011.

Now, despite the documents from their files, the agency is standing by its assessment.

“What Ibison said back then, that is the conclusion, knowing everything we know today,” David Couvertier, an FBI spokesman, said Tuesday. “The Bulldog is getting information that was already taken into consideration.”

But Graham is unswayed.

In an interview Tuesday, Graham said he is “extremely pleased” with the FBI's release of new documents.

“Basically, they said they had conducted an investigation and hadn't found anything,” Graham said. “Now we know that as far back as April of 2002, they had a statement in their files written by a responsible law enforcement official, who I cannot name, saying there were many connections between the hijackers and this family in Sarasota.”

“There are more than those 30-some pages of documents which would indicate that the public statements of the FBI are not accurate,” Graham said.

The FBI has a credibility problem

The typical FBI message amounts to trust us even if there is no reason to do so. The FBI has never explained to the public why the UBLU obstructed the investigation into al-Hazmi and al-MIhdhar. The FBI has continuously promoted Dina Corsi who played a key role in preventing criminal agents from being involved in the search for them. She has never had to explain her conduct to the public. Al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar tie into Graham's linkage of high level Saudi support. Evidently it was just a huge coincidence that the UBLU protected two guys who lived with FBI informant Abdussattar Shaikh. Nobody at the FBI has to explain any of this. Instead a spokesman issues an authoritative statement and that is good enough. It is definitely good enough for most US "journalists" who evidently have no curiosity about this story at all. That definitely includes Steve Coll who refers to the al-Hazmi/al-Mihdhar issue as an unforced error. Kurt Eichenwald in 500 Days praises the CIA for warning the Bush administration but he has zero to say about CIA/FBI obstruction.

Think about it this way. Imagine if we were to learn the CIA and FBI knew the ID of two Boston Marathon bombers months ago but continually prevented agents from pursuing leads. When the public finds out an FBI spokesman says "There is no substance to these allegations. We had no idea." And then the US media says "Good enough for us. Who are we to question the intelligence community?" The same media then goes on and on about how much they care about the victims even though they were unwilling to do the one thing they had the capacity to do and that is get answers as to how and why people were murdered.

A Saudi family abruptly moves out of a Sarasota, Florida, residence linked to individuals who will later be accused of being among the 9/11 hijackers. The residence is owned by a Saudi couple, Esam Ghazzawi and his American-born wife, Deborah, and is occupied by Esam’s daughter, Anoud, and her husband, Abdulaziz al-Hijji. An unnamed counterterrorism officer will, in 2012, describe, “The car registration numbers of vehicles that had passed through the Prestancia community’s North Gate in the months before 9/11, coupled with the identification documents shown by incoming drivers on request, showed that Mohamed Atta and several of his fellow hijackers [Marwan al-Shehhi, Walid al-Shehri, and Ziad Jarrah]—and another Saudi terror suspect still at large [Adnan Shukrijumah]—had visited 4224 Escondito Circle on multiple occasions.” The counterterrorism officer will also say that “link analysis… tracked phone calls—based on dates, times, and length of phone conversations to and from the Escondito house—dating back more than a year before 9/11. And the phone traffic also connected with the 9/11 terrorists—though less directly than the gate logs did.” [Broward Bulldog, 3/12/2012] According to the Broward Bulldog, “The counterterrorism agent said Ghazzawi and al-Hijji had been on a watch list at the FBI and that a US agency involved in tracking terrorist funds was interested in both men even before 9/11.” [Broward Bulldog, 9/8/2011]

Residence Hastily Abandoned - A suspicious neighbor, Patrick Gallagher, will email the FBI on the day of the 9/11 attacks, but apparently the FBI will not investigate until about a month later, after Larry Berberich, senior administrator and security officer of the Prestancia gated community, contacts local law enforcement. According to Berberich and the counterterrorism officer: “[T]here was mail on the table, dirty diapers in one of the bathrooms… all the toiletries still in place… all their clothes hanging in the closet… TVs… opulent furniture, equal or greater in value than the house… the pool running, with toys in it. The beds were made… fruit on the counter… the refrigerator full of food.… It was like they went grocery shopping. Like they went out to a movie.… [but] the safe was open in the master bedroom, with nothing in it, not a paper clip.… A computer was still there. A computer plug in another room, and the line still there. Looked like they’d taken [another] computer and left the cord.” [Broward Bulldog, 9/8/2011] The family also leaves three vehicles and “huge piles of trash in front of the… home.” [Broward Bulldog, 9/13/2011]

Terrorism Links Alleged by FBI Informant - In addition to the visitor logs and call records, FBI informant Wissam Taysir Hammoud will allege that al-Hijji has links to the 9/11 hijackers. In 2004, the FBI and the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office will interview Hammoud at the Hillsborough County Jail. Hammoud will tell them that al-Hijji introduced him to Adnan El Shukrijumah, that al-Hijji considered Osama bin Laden a “hero,” that al-Hijji may have known some of the 9/11 hijackers, that al-Hijji talked about “going to Afghanistan and becoming a freedom fighter,” and that al-Hijji tried to recruit him. At the time of the interview, Hammoud will be serving a 21-year sentence for attempted murder and weapons violations, and is classified as an “International Terrorist Associate” by the US Bureau of Prisons. [Broward Bulldog, 3/12/2012]

Al-Hijji Professes Innocence - Responding to the allegations in email correspondence with the London Daily Telegraph in 2012, al-Hijji will acknowledge having been friends with Hammoud, but will say the other allegations against him are false: “I have neither relation nor association with any of those bad people/criminals and the awful crime they did,” he will say. “9/11 is a crime against the USA and all humankind, and I’m very saddened and oppressed by these false allegations.” [Broward Bulldog, 3/12/2012]

FBI Repeatedly Denies 9/11 Links - Following news reporting on the events, the FBI will say in a prepared statement given to the Tampa Bay Times that the related leads “were resolved and determined not to be related to any threat nor connected to the 9/11 plot,” and that “[a]ll of the documentation pertaining to the 9/11 investigation was made available to the 9/11 Commission” and the Joint Inquiry. [Tampa Bay Times, 9/13/2011] And in a letter denying records requested under the Freedom of Information Act, the FBI will say, “At no time during the course of its investigation of the attacks, known as the PENTTBOM investigation, did the FBI develop credible evidence that connected the address at 4224 Escondito Circle, Sarasota, Florida to any of the 9/11 hijackers.” [Broward Bulldog, 2/20/2011] OOPS !!!

Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Disputes FBI Statements - Senator Bob Graham (D-FL), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, will deny that the Joint Inquiry received information regarding the Saudis and the Escondito Circle address, and will press the FBI to provide the records it says it turned over. The FBI will delay turning these records over for several months, and when it finally does provide two classified documents from 2002 and 2003 to Graham, Graham will say, “An important investigative lead was not pursued and unsubstantiated statements were accepted as truth.” The Broward Bulldog will also report that Graham says, “[T]he agent suggested that another federal agency be asked to join the investigation, but that the idea was ‘rejected.’” Graham will attempt to interview this agent, but find he has been ordered by FBI headquarters not to talk [ Broward Bulldog, 2/20/2011]



Florida al-Qaeda fugitive Esam Ghazzawi linked to BCCI and two dead Saudi Princes

This follows up my posting yesterday, which examined the Miami Herald report Wednesday that the FBI had covered up the escape of a Saudi financier living in Florida who had hosted Mohamed Atta at his Sarasota villa in the months leading up to the 9/11 attacks. See, http://journals.democraticunderground.com/leveymg/595

Esam Ghazzawi, his daughter, Anoud, and her husband, Abdulazzi al-Hiijjii suddenly disappeared on August 30, 2001, leaving behind a million dollar, fully furnished Sarasota home, several automobiles, and their personal belongings. For ten years, the FBI withheld information from Congressional investigators and the public that Ghazzami has been visited by Atta and another hijacker, and phone records showed numerous calls to other figures involved in the 9/11 attack.

Ghazzawi linked to BCCI and two dead Saudi Princes

Background checking since yesterday’s news account reveals evidence that Ghazzawi, who was on US government watch-lists along with his daughter and son-in-law, has a long history of association with Saudi financiers linked to terrorism and major global bank frauds in the 1980s and 1990s. He now lives openly in Jeddah and owns the posh Orient Restaurant in Khobar, KSA. Most intriguingly, he is mentioned in a 1997 London court document as having held funds for Prince Fahd bin Salman, a member of the Saudi Royal family who died suddenly at the age of 46 on July 24, 2001.

Prince Fahd's father Salman is the governor of Riyadh and brother of King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. The eldest of four brothers, and born in 1955, Prince Fahd acted as deputy governor of Riyadh's Eastern Region during the Gulf War of 1991. Little has ever been written about the death of Fahd, but his involvement with BCCI was noted several years earlier in connection with a law suit in London. Reprinted at: http://www.sauduction.com/issues/11


Private Eye reports: "Prince Fahd bin Salman, eldest son of ... Prince Salman, the governor of Riyadh ... a court case brought by the BCCI liquidators over the little matter of $397,000 owed to the rogue bank. Since 1994 the liquidators had been seeking repayment of this money under a guarantee given by the prince for the overdraft of an offshore company, Colchest Corporation N.V. In an unusual response, Prince Fahd sought to offset against this debt money held at another BCCI branch in the name of one Esam Ghazzawi, claiming that this was his money. The court of appeal rejected this suggestion on the basis that it was unclear who owned what in the Ghazzawi accounts."

Prince Fahd’s death five weeks before Ghazzami suddenly fled his Sarasota home, barely 6 weeks before 9/11 might not in itself be more than coincidence. However, the unfolding story takes a particularly sinister turn when one realizes that Faud’s older brother, Prince Ahmed bin Salman died almost exactly a year later (November 17, 1958 – July 22, 2002), and his death has been labeled the first of a series of post-9/11 U.S. targeted killings of prominent figures identified as having had leading roles in the attacks.

In his 2003 book Why America Slept, author Gerald Posner writes that Prince Ahmed bin Salman had had ties to al-Qaeda and had advance knowledge of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. When 9/11 figure Abu Zubaydeh was captured, Posner claims that he revealed to American interrogators the identity of a number of top al-Qaeda backers, including Prince Ahmed, and the head of the Pakistani Air Force, who died with his family and closest aides in a February 2003 mid-air transport plane explosion.

To the timeline of events leading up to 9/11, including the 08/30/2001 flight of Ghazzawi and his family, we must now add the death five weeks earlier of Prince Faud and the death almost a year to the day of his older brother, Prince Ahmed. Their father is a co-director of the Saudi intelligence service along with Prince Turki bin Faisal, who suddenly resigned his 25 year commission as the Director of the Saudi General Intelligence agency and departed his long-time post in Washington suddenly on September 4, 2001. That is another important date that should put on anyone’s 9/11 timeline.

It is now past time for the redacted material in the 9/11 Report about Saudi al-Qaeda finance to be released, and the case reopened to examine new evidence.


OOPS !! adnan khashoggi BCCI


Esam Ghazzawi and his American-born wife, Deborah, and is occupied by Esam’s daughter, Anoud, and her husband, Abdulaziz al-Hijji. An unnamed counterterrorism officer will, in 2012, describe, “The car registration numbers of vehicles that had passed through the Prestancia community’s North Gate in the months before 9/11, coupled with the identification documents shown by incoming drivers on request, showed that Mohamed Atta and several of his fellow hijackers [Marwan al-Shehhi, Walid al-Shehri, and Ziad Jarrah]—and another Saudi terror suspect still at large [Adnan Shukrijumah]—had visited 4224 Escondito Circle on multiple occasions.
