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.

This was “not acceptable to the Administration and would have been severely detrimental to the leadership at DoD [Mr Rumsfeld at the Defence Department]”. He added 34 . He also claimed that one reason Mr Cheney and Mr Rumsfeld did not want the innocent detainees released was because “the detention efforts would be revealed as the incredibly confused operation that they were”.” He alleged that for Mr Cheney and Mr Rumsfeld “innocent people languishing in Guantánamo for years was justified by the broader War on Terror and the small number of terrorists who were responsible for the September 11 attacks”.. Colonel Wilkerson. asserted “He had absolutely no concern that the vast majority of Guantánamo detainees were innocent . so be it.. Little or no evidence was produced as to why they had been taken.

Something else had to be going on something was missing. 36 . The President's Real Goal in Iraq The official story on Iraq has never made sense. As it turns out. those missing pieces have finally begun to fall into place. In recent days. it was hard to believe that smart people in the Bush administration would start a major war based on such flimsy evidence.

Once that is understood. is intended to mark the official emergence of the United States as a full-fledged global empire. should it come. That may be true. other mysteries solve themselves.

It advocates the "transformation" of the U. For example. 40 . That's exactly the message being preached by Rumsfeld and others. the Bush administration has tried to accomplish. The administration has taken that course. that 2000 report reads like a blueprint for current Bush defense policy. the United States would have to increase defense spending from 3 percent of gross domestic product to as much as 3. It recommended that to project sufficient power worldwide to enforce Pax Americana.8 percent of GDP."The challenge of this coming century is to preserve and enhance this 'American peace.

To the contrary.But he also argues that the United States. willingly embraces the idea that the United States would establish permanent military bases in a post-war Iraq. It is not something that he or others have dared to discuss honestly with the American people. Candidate Bush certainly did not campaign on such a change. "We're Gary Cooper." Accepting the Cooper role would be an historic change in who we are as a nation." he says. a position calculated to appeal to voters leery of military intervention. for example. has no choice but to act anyway. 44 . understanding its connotations.

the events of Sept. 11 have given those advocates of empire a new opportunity to press their case with a new president. To the chagrin of some. we are really debating the role that the United States will play in the years and decades to come. But with the end of the Cold War and the disappearance of the Soviet Union. the increase in our defense budget from 1999-2003 will be more than the total amount spent annually by China. according to some. as a democracy.
