The Truth About Khalid Sheik Mohammed And 11th Sept 2001 Prefix
Lets start off Sept 11th 2001 Terrorist Attacks in New York, USA was “A False Flag Terrorist Attack” upon United States of America, concocted by a handful of Israelis and dual passport Americans and carried out by the resources of the Mossad, CIA, US Military, FBI and NSA with all other agencies and Government Depts falling in line behind them and the Official Story released to the Mainstream Media. With Vice President Dick Cheney transferring all operational powers over the Police, FBI, CIA, NSA, Secret Service, US Military over to himself for the day, and ran Anti - Terrorism Drills / Exercises with the US Military as cover for this “False Flag” Terrorist Attack to go ahead. By Dick Cheney running these drills – exercises at the same time as the real suppose to be Terrorist Attack happening he tied up America’s resources from fighting back. What Dick Cheney did was to commit “Treason” he helped stage a Terrorist Attack against his own country, killing his own people in cold blood.
Then to cover his crimes up he authorized the set up of an assassination squad to go about and kill any World Leader, Politician, Journalist, TV Producer, Independent Bloggers – Reporters in the world who tried to expose Bush – Cheney crimes and this “False Flag” Terrorist Attack. Please read more here: - Seymour Hersch: 'Executive Assassination Ring' Reported Directly to Cheney Office” "They’ve been going into countries, not talking to the ambassador or the CIA station chief, and finding people on a list and executing them and leaving"
While all this was happening already drawn up and sitting on the desks of Attorney Generals Office was (Patriot Terrorism Laws) already written, drawn up ready to be introduced into certain countries that had already fallen to these Nazi – Fascist murdering, thieving dogs who had secretly already decided to turn their countries into Police States without the consent of the people of the country. Countries included: - United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, England, Germany, France, Holland, Denmark, and Italy.
Motive behind Sept 11th 2001 Terrorist Attacks
Realization of the goals as formulated in the policy paper Clean Break,
As well as the realization of the goals of the Project of the New American Century.
It all comes down to the strengthening of the American global supremacy by creating an excuse for obtaining a larger military presence in the Middle East where some 60 percent of the global oil reserves are located (PNACgoal), as well as improvement of the geo-strategic position of Israel by eliminating its most important enemies (Iraq, Iran, Syria –> Clean Break-goal). The link with oil explains why people like Dick Cheney were on-board somebody who made his career in the oil business and perfectly understood that oil was becoming scarce in the near future ('peak-oil'). So after the 11th Sept 2001 Terrorist Attacks United States of America declares A War On Terror upon the Whole World, using Terrorism as an excuse to cover the above goals, ambitions, objectives. The American people would not of went along with their plans unless a pretext – excuse was used to justify the coming Wars aboard.
