    Default Ptech, the CIA, FBI, SS, 911, PROMIS, Terrorists-R-US







    A complex tale by someone who knew the inside story of Ptech....a company involved in 911 planning and execution, with persons inside of it listed as terrorists, yet protected in high places....a strange tale, indeed! Their software, apparently, was a modified version of PROMIS...another long story.

    In the third 'video' which is really an audio interview of 1:50:46, is in two parts - Part I is about her helping at Ground Zero and health effects / investigations. Part II is about Ptech and the complex 'octopus' between intelligence agencies, government entities, corporations such as Ptech and others, terrorism, and spying on everything/one. Her best one-liner in the second part, which she says knowing what she knows and not hyperbole was 'where the USA is now headed will make the Third Reich look like a teaparty'. Sad, but true. It is beginning to dawn on me that the same forces that were behind 911 and its coverup were behind Trumpf....so I think the 'fourth reich' as Harry Belofonte so aptly named it recently begins in just 3.5 weeks. Welcome to the abyss. This story ties in directly, I believe, to both 911 and those around Trumpf, generally.

    Just as there are human spies and electronic spying, there is also the desire to have computer programs that can monitor [secretly to those naively using them] what the system and company using it are doing/thinking - but also to covertly take over their computers undetected - that, I believe is the essence of PROMIS and further developed by P-Tech. N.B. P-Tech is still in business under a new name!

    FTW: You said at the 9/11 Citizens' Commission hearings, you mentioned - it's on page 139 of transcript - that Ptech was with Mitre Corporation in the basement of the FAA for 2 years prior to 9/11 and their specific job was to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and the Air Force, in case of an emergency.

    Indira Singh: Yes, I have a good diagram for that.

    FTW: And that relationship had been going on mediated by Ptech for 2 years prior to 9/11. You elsewhere say that the Secret Service is among the government entities that had a contract with Ptech. Mike Ruppert's thesis in Crossing the Rubicon, as you know, is that the software that was running information between FAA & NORAD was superseded by a parallel, subsuming, version of itself that was being run by the Secret Service on state of the art parallel equipment in the PEOC with a nucleus of Secret Service personnel around Cheney. In your view, might it have been the case that Cheney was using Ptech to surveil the function of the people in FAA & NORAD who wanted to do their jobs on 9/11, and then intervene to turn off the legitimate response?
    Indira Singh: Is it possible from a software point of view? Absolutely it's possible. Did he (Cheney) have such a capability? I don't know. But that's the ideal risk scenario - to have an overarching view of what's going on in data. That's exactly what I wanted for JP Morgan. You know what's ironic about this - I wanted to take my operational risk blueprint which is for an operational event going wrong and I wanted to make it generic for extreme event risk to surveil across intelligence networks. What you're describing is something that I said, 'boy if we had this in place maybe 9/11 wouldn't have happened.' When I was going down to DARPA and getting these guys excited about creating an extreme event risk blueprint to do this, I'm thinking of doing exactly what you're saying Cheney might have already had!

    ***I believe that Dick Cheney also had the ability using evolutions of the PROMIS software, to penetrate and override any other radar computer or communications system in the government.
    - Mike Ruppert, in "Summation: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury," from Crossing The Rubicon, p.592
    [Few have grasped the overall long-term significance of the saga of PROMIS software and what it has become. When I reported on it in October 2000, after meeting with and assisting members of the RCMP's National Security Staff I was aware that - in terms of secret technologies - PROMIS and its evolutions were the lynchpin of every new military, scientific and financial advance being pursued by the US government and corporate sector. PROMIS progeny have become the "operating system" underlying data management and data mining for every major technology under development in all arenas of technological advance from medicine, to finance, to surveillance, to battlefield Command, Control and Communications or C3.
    In the long ordeal to secure a publisher for Crossing the Rubicon, my agent and I went through a number of publishers who expressed keen interest in the book. The problem was that almost every one we dealt with came back to us and said, "We'd like to publish the book but we need for you to remove certain things." By a great margin, it was our chapter on PROMIS and my many subsequent references to it that appeared to be public enemy number one for mainstream publishers (most owned by multi-national corporations).
    By definition, PROMIS progeny are the backbone of a current DoD plan to develop a "Godlike" view of all human (or battlefield) activity from space. They are also inherently a part of the data processing being envisioned for advanced space weapons requiring machines to think as they share data in virtual real time. MIT in a recent scientific publication titled "Space Weapons: Crossing the US Rubicon"(a possible tip of the hat to my book) described a number of capabilities to which FTW referred in our October 2000 story on PROMIS, including a statement that space is "the ultimate high ground."
    The MIT article also contains a reference to one of the greatest fears expressed by all who wonder what hidden technologies might be making the Neocons so brazen in their attempts at bullying the world into submission: "On the other hand, the prospect of weapons in orbit-poised to strike anywhere on the globe at any time-has elicited vigorous opposition, both in the United States and abroad."45 The Neocons have placed their faith in technologies we have only begun to evaluate and discuss, and this is an area needing much additional research by authentic journalists.
    Iran is a much more industrialized and automated nation than the ruin and rubble of Iraq. What if Donald Rumsfeld believed that he could use computers through the Internet to turn off all of the power generating stations supplying Tehran? What if Dick Cheney could shut down all of the computerized pumping, pipeline, refining and chemical technology used to keep Iran's oil flowing to the rest of the world? This is how the American, British and Israeli elites (including corporations) think and how they plan.
    All three countries have long, deep and continuous links to PROMIS software. As time passes it is beginning to appear that PROMIS is literally what made possible not only 9/11, but everything that has followed since and what is being planned.
    Recently the New York Times published a story about how the US military was envisioning a costly new "Internet" in space to control all military operations worldwide, calling it a "God's-eye view" of battle. Called Global Information Grid or GIG, this new platform performs the exact functions we described in an FTW article more than four years ago. Then we were called delusional conspiracy theorists. Four years later we are shown to have been right on the money.
    Giant, expensive technology programs like SDI and GIG are sometimes neither wasteful porkbarrels nor the actual instruments that are presented to the public; instead, they are some third thing nobody knows about. This is the way large black projects are funded.
    Total Information Awareness or TIA, an Orwellian nightmare of data mining that uses PROMIS-evolved technologies and artificial intelligence, is now operating and able to incorporate vastly divergent data bases of personal information on private citizens from computer systems using different languages in near-real-time. Every bit of personal information from grocery shopping habits to driving records, credit reports, credit card transactions and medical records is now almost instantly accessible. Access will be expedited and broadened to local law enforcement agencies when what will become a national ID card comes into being. That will happen as driver's licenses are standardized nationwide (following the recent intelligence reform act) to include a simple UPC-like code that will allow approved agencies to get all of our data. The surveillance and intervention capabilities of PROMIS progeny can now be used to prohibit a credit card purchase or (soon) prevent someone from boarding a commercial aircraft. These capabilities could also be used to empty a private bank account or - when coupled with biometric face recognition technology - prevent you from making a withdrawal from your bank or even buying food.
    In every one of these software applications there are two themes: machines that "talk" to each other and artificial intelligence. (Please see Crossing the Rubicon). As you will see below, these capabilities are now known to exist.
    TIA has been renamed several times. We know that the first software was delivered to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 2003. Its latest nom de guerre is TIE or Trusted Information Environment. According to the San Francisco Chronicle last October TIE now allows the government to access private databases without a warrant. I go one step further to assert that TIE allows access to private databases without the knowledge of the database owners, provided only one condition exists: the database can be accessed through the internet.
    And although the public face of TIA pretends that these technologies have not yet been applied, we are certain with the publication of this story that the same software the government needs is already in use by private corporations - the big ones - and we remind the reader that FTW's map of the world states that the government has been turned into a franchise operation of these corporations anyway. So where's the seam?
    What the courageous and brilliant Indira Singh has to tell us is a matter of monumental importance. Based upon these new revelations which confirm what I suggested in Crossing the Rubicon every American and quite likely every citizen of an industrialized nation should assume that all of these technologies are operational today. A bit of breathing room is left as I conclude that they have not been sufficiently deployed yet to monitor all citizens in real time. My best assumption is that right now perhaps a million or so high-interest Americans are under constant surveillance; all by computer technology which has proven so accurate that it can detect suspicious movements just by correlating gasoline and food purchases with bank withdrawals and utility consumption. [--MCR]
    FTW readers are aware that on the morning of 9/11 NORAD was engaged in multiple war games which drew fighter jets away from the doomed airliners, and polluted air traffic control screens with false information from the exercises. One of those injected blips was the so-called "phantom Flight 11," which appeared and persisted on control screens after the war games had been aborted.1 That would require exactly the kind of technology that Ptech (with whom Singh did business) and its partner Mitre had been providing to each of the three agencies involved: the FAA, NORAD, and - most significantly for Dick Cheney that morning - the Secret Service. In other words, one of the most central arguments in the Rubicon's case has just been independently validated. (See Part II)
    In this electrifying timeline-driven report, Wall Street whistleblower Indira Singh lays out the connections between the providers of this advanced software (derived from the PROMIS software stolen from the Inslaw corporation in the 1980s by the US Justice Department and others) and the network of terrorist financing (sustained with US blessing) that has pervaded U.S covert operations for years. That deep-political relationship is at its strongest in the Bush administration, whose Saudi and Pakistani ties go back decades.
    Dick Cheney, James Baker, GHWB, Dubya, and the people in and around the once and future American ruling junta have financially live links to the Muslim Brotherhood milieu that formed part of BCCI and, more recently, al Qaeda (this is also the context of a fascinatingly influential relationship among Kermit Roosevelt, GHWB, and Adnan Khashoggi). Nazis and their admirers are the third piece in the triangle, connected to Islamists since the Muslim Brotherhood's creation in 1928 by Hitler ally Hasam al-Banna, and connected to the Bush clan through decades of interdependence with American oil and intelligence elites - including the Rockefellers (Standard Oil) and the Harrimans (Brown Bros. Harriman / Kellogg Brown and Root / Halliburton).2
    Viewed in this context, the Ptech story is a chilling reminder that this network is still in charge; that it facilitated the 9/11 attacks that murdered thousands and destroyed the health of thousands more; and that "our" American defenses against sabotage are woefully dependent upon the goodwill of saboteurs (both foreign and domestic). - JAH]

    January 20, 2005, 0900 PST (FTW) - In 1995 Indira Singh started working on Wall Street (around the corner from the WTC) as a Senior Enterprise Architecture Consultant for JP Morgan. When the company was purchased by Chase Manhattan Bank in January 2001, Singh moved from enterprise architecture to a related part of Morgan's IT operations: the Operational Risk Management (ORM) group.3 ORM is the informational part of bank security, in which sophisticated software is engineered and deployed to detect malfeasance - especially money-laundering, rogue trading, and accounting fraud.4 Since the spectacular collapse of BCCI in 1991, a decade of bank failures had shown the terrible importance of such surveillance and intervention capability. At JP Morgan Chase, Singh worked on the next generation of risk software, whose function, according to Singh, was "to think about all the information going on throughout the enterprise as bank business was being conducted worldwide… If it spotted something, it would be able to react by notifying an intelligent agent or actually stop what was happening in real time."5
    In the wrong hands, such a program could have disastrous political and financial implications. From The Wilderness has published several stories about PROMIS software, the robust datamining program whose theft by the Justice Department has occasioned decades of international legal and illegal maneuvering. PROMIS is also the subject of a chapter in Crossing The Rubicon, because it took on geopolitical importance when a group of criminals connected to US intelligence modified PROMIS and sold it to foreign intelligence agencies in multiple countries as far back as the early 80s. There, it acted as a back door through which intelligence agencies stole proprietary and national-security information from those countries and dumped it into US computers. That was before artificial intelligence. In the twenty years since PROMIS was developed, artificial intelligence (AI) has potentiated such datamining programs in astonishing ways.
    Half of Crossing The Rubicon is about 9/11; the other half is about the surrounding system of deep political alliances, terrorism, narcotraffic, money laundering, bank fraud, and information technology (PROMIS) that made it possible. Following where her Ptech experience led, Singh came face to face with the monster behind a half-century of criminally funded rightwing militarism.
    The Ptech story is a crucial piece of 9/11 because the software was used to simultaneously coordinate the FAA with NORAD and the Secret Service. But it transcends 9/11 because that terror attack is continuous with preceding decades of violent Islamic extremism epitomized in the international Muslim Brotherhood, of which al Qaeda is only one, relatively recent, incarnation.6 Worse, the Muslim Brotherhood has from its first days been linked to the Nazi party and its Swiss neo-Nazi epigones.7 Anti-Soviet projects of the CIA and the Pentagon (from 11-22-63 to the Afghan War) have long been recognized as continuous with the absorption of Nazi SS personnel into what became the CIA.8 The connection of the Bush crime family to the political economy of the Nazi movement is familiar from the excellent work of former Justice Department Nazi war crimes prosecutor John Loftus and others.9 Its triangulation with the Bush-Saudi alliance forms a powerful explanatory paradigm - one to which FTW will be paying further attention in the sequel to this story.
    The following timeline is a red thread running through the larger fabric of contemporary Rightist attacks on democracy and the rule of law. Global in scope, this milieu transcends the boundaries of nation-states just as banks and multinational corporations do; it transcends the boundaries of religions as does the conceptual purview of what is universally recognized as "fundamentalism"; and it comprehends the wide range of projects that unite every domestic political assassination in America from RFK to the latest "suicided" Enemy of the State. Such a tapestry cannot hang on the single nail of an article like this one, but if we are to understand this "warthatwillnotendinourlifetimes," we need to pick up the hammer. With the Rubiconbehind us and Indira Singh at our side, we begin with her experience.

    • 1985. Egyptian banker Soliman Biheiri is introduced to members of the Muslim Brotherhood.10
    • March 19, 1986. The articles of incorporation for BMI, Inc. show that Soliman Biheiri forms Islamic investing firm Bait ul-Mal, Inc. (BMI). His partner in that venture is Hussein Ibrahim, BMI's Vice President from 1989 to 1995 and later chief scientist at Ptech.
    • 1988. Makhtab al-Khidamat (MAK) is installed as the CIA accounting mechanism through which ISI / BCCI money moves to the Pakistani Mujaheddin. In False Profits: The Inside Story of BCCI, the World's Most Corrupt Financial Empire, Peter Truell and Larry Gurwin document the close relationship between BCCI's founder Agha Hasan Abedi, and then-CIA Director William Casey. Control of the proliferating MAK recruitment centers and training camps shifted to bin Laden when Azzam was murdered, apparently on bin Laden's orders.
    • 1992. FBI agent Robert Wright begins his investigation of terrorism financing and Yassin al-Qadi.
    • 1993. WTC bombing is funded in part by BMI, the BCCI-linked shell company that includes Ptech.
    • 1995-2000. Indira Singh is Senior Enterprise Architecture Consultant at JP Morgan.
    • April 19, 1995. The Murrah Federal Building USG complex in Oklahoma City is bombed.11
    • September 1996. Ptech already working with DoD's research group, DARPA: "Ptech, based in Cambridge, Mass., offers an integrated set of object-oriented tools that enable users to create interactive blueprints of business processes. Software code can be generated from the hierarchical layout, providing rapid and consistent application development. The [Defense] Advanced Research Projects Agency is using [Ptech's program called] Framework to help transfer commercial software methodologies to the defense sector."http://www.govexec.com/archdoc/rrg96/0996rrg5.htm.
    • 1998. Yassin Al-Qadi contributes $14 million to Ptech, becoming its major investor. "Those involved in this deal from Ptech Senior Management were; Mr. Oussama Ziade (CEO); Mr. Jeff Goins (VP Marketing); and Mr. Ulf Fagerquist(Technical Adviser). Also present was a key value-added reseller of Ptech software in the business architecture space that complements technology architectures, Mr. Roger Burlton. This meeting took place in Jeddah at the offices of Mr. Al Qadi, and other locations." - Indira Singh, Advisory Report on Ptech (see August 2002, below).
    • August 7, 1998. "Terrorists bomb the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The bomb in Nairobi, Kenya kills 213 people, including 12 US nationals, and injures more than 4,500. The bomb in Dar es Salaam kills 11 and injures 85. The attack is blamed on al-Qaeda." - Paul Thompson, 911 Timeline.
    • October 1998. "FBI agents Robert Wright and John Vincent are tracking a terrorist cell in Chicago, but are told to simply follow suspects around town and file reports. The two agents believe some of the money used to finance the 1998 US embassy bombings (see August 7, 1998) leads back to Chicago and Saudi multimillionaire businessman Yassin al-Qadi. Supervisors try, but temporarily fail, to halt the investigation into al-Qadi's possible terrorist connections... a supervisor prohibits Wright and Vincent from making any arrests connected to the bombings, or opening new criminal investigations." - Paul Thompson, 911 Timeline. That supervisor - named in Crossing the Rubicon- is Supervisory Special Agent David Frasca.
    • 2000. Seeing the limitations of existing risk management software, Indira Singh begins to design a new, more agile program - an extremely adaptable enterprise architecture blueprint which, when integrated with sufficient AI, has applications far beyond JP Morgan's banking practices. These include Defense and Intelligence. Traditional enterprise architecture (e.g., Popkin Software) creates models; Singh wants to create a living, flexible surveillance and intervention system that can monitor an enterprise from within while coordinating it with the event risks of the changing outside world. That requires a core AI software component called an "inference engine."12
    • January 2001. Chase Manhattan Bank buys JP Morgan. Indira Singh moves to Operational Risk Management group within Morgan. While developing a risk blueprint program for JP Morgan, she presents the blueprint programming idea to Interoperability Clearing House, a DARPA-funded think tank for software R&D.13 Interested potential clients include CIA, through In-Q-tel14; JP Morgan itself; and, after 9/11, persons at Dowling College's School of Aviation who have probable access to DHS funds.
    • Aug. 28, 2001. Ptech CFO George Peterson Adds COO Role; Jeff Goins is promoted to General Manager, Europe; Blake Bisson joins Ptech as Vice President of Sales. Fagerquist and Goins are allegedly affiliated with a longstanding and politically potent Christian secret society called "The Fellowship" - with which Dick Cheney, John Ashcroft15 and other high US government officials16 are also affiliated. Wayne Madsen has established the involvement of the Fellowship in the rigging of the 2004 presidential election in the United States, and has linked Dick Cheney to that organization.17
    • SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
    • September 12, 2001. In-Q-Tel, the CIA's IT-seeking arm is holding funding hearings. Backed by Interoperability Clearing House, Indira Singh presents the "Blue Prophet" risk blueprint.18 When In-Q-Tel / CIA declines funding, Singh goes on to shop for an inference engine core and for funding.
    • October 2001. In the wake of traumatizing experience on 9/11 - as a civilian EMT at Ground Zero, as a career employee in the World Trade Center, and as a resident of the neighborhood - Singh's focus on "extreme event risk" is intensified. Decides ICH are "techies" who don't really understand risk. "There was a Risk technology conference on the [WTC] 106th floor on 9/11 that my team was supposed to be at... as you can imagine that wouldn't be one for my group to miss, yet we did because I was late and had spent the previous week in DC focusing on In-Q-Tel and Blue Prophet. If I had been more focused on JPM and NY the prior week, who knows... there was free breakfast and it was Windows on the World."
    • October 12, 2001. Yassin Al-Qadi is listed as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist. "The Treasury Department Press Release issued on the date of Yassin Qadi's designation as an SDGT…states that Qadi was named an SDGT on the basis that he and other well-connected Saudi citizens transferred millions of dollars to Osama bin Laden through charities and trusts like the Muwafaq Foundation… [of which] Qadi was a trustee." - Affidavit of David C. Kane, Senior Special Agent, Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement. August 14, 2003.
    • December 2001. Roger Burlton and others recommend Ptech to Indira.
    • March 20, 2002. Under Operation Greenquest, Federal agents raid approximately 100 companies and charities operating in a single office at 555 Grove Street in Herndon, Virginia, taking hundreds of boxes of documents. Yaqub Mirza, a member of the Ptech board of directors, is a central target.19 In a major story in the conservative Weekly Standard (04/08/2002, Volume 007, Issue 29), "Wahhabis in the Old Dominion: What the federal raids in Northern Virginia uncovered," Stephen Schwartz writes:
      The keystone of the Saudi-sponsored Northern Virginia network is the Saar Foundation, created by Suleiman Abdul Al-Aziz al-Rajhi, a scion of one of the richest Saudi families. The Saar Foundation is connected to Al-Taqwa, a shell company formerly based in Switzerland, where its leading figures included a notorious neo-Nazi and Islamist, Ahmed Huber. Subsequently moved to the United States, Al-Taqwa was shut down after September 11 and its assets frozen by U.S. presidential order. But operations continued, as the Wahhabi lobby shifted to its backup institutions here.Saar has also been linked to Khalid bin Mahfouz, former lead financial adviser to the Saudi royal family and ex-head of the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia. Mahfouz has been named by French intelligence as a backer of Osama bin Laden; Mahfouz endowed the Muwafaq Foundation, which U.S. authorities confirm was an arm of bin Laden's terror organization. Muwafaq's former chief, Yassin al-Qadi, oversaw the financial penetration of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania by Wahhabi terrorists in the late 1990s.

      "Men like al-Rajhi, Mahfouz, and al-Qadi are the big players in the financing of Islamic extremism. And their paths repeatedly lead back to Northern Virginia. They don't play for small stakes: Saar received $1.7 billion in donations in 1998, although this was left out of the foundation's tax filings until 2000."
    • March 2002. "Searches by FBI agents and Bosnian police in Sarajevo uncover numerous handwritten Arabic documents detailing the origin and history of the al Qaida organization. Among the recovered files is a copy of a 1988 handwritten draft listing wealthy financiers of Osama bin Laden's mujaheddin operations in Afghanistan, referred to within al Qaida as the "Golden Chain." This list contains 20 names with a parenthetical after each name, likely indicating the person who received funds from the specified donor. "Osama" appears after seven of the listings. While Ptech President Yassin al Qadi does not appear on this list, he has ties to the listed Yussef Nada20 and Golden Chain businessmen. He invested millions of dollars in BMI and funded a Turkish firm run by senior al Qaeda figures."
    • April 28- May 2, 2002. In a private meeting at a conference in San Antonio, Texas,21 industry leader Dr. John Zachman suggests Singh use Ptech, citing their relationship to IBM, a strategic partner of JP Morgan Chase.
    • May 2002. Dr. Hussein Ibrahim, co-founder of BMI and Ptech's chief scientist, and a delegation of other Ptech personnel come to JP Morgan at Singh's invitation, to demonstrate why Singh's blueprint project should buy Ptech software for its inference engine core. But the Ptech delegation has come to the Morgan offices unprepared, and they behave strangely: Singh's suspicions are aroused when Ibrahim offers to demonstrate the software on his laptop, using proprietary JP Morgan data. This would have compromised JPM information security and is entirely outside industry protocols ("a show-stopper"). In an adjoining room, Singh calls Roger Burlton, who runs Business Process Renewal in Vancouver. He tells her, "Don't let them out of your sight and don't let them leave with anything." Burlton recommends that she speak with Jeff Goins, a former Ptech employee. Goins informs Singh that Saudi terror financier Yassin Al Qadi is an investor in Ptech. Al Qadi claims to have met Dick Cheney in Jeddah before he became vice president, and that they still maintain "cordial relations." Singh confirms that Goins had taken his concerns to an FBI agent, and arranges to speak with that agent.
    • May 30, 2002. Agent Robert Wright of the Chicago FBI holds a press conference on the steps of the Capital and bursts into tears apologizing to the 9/11 families. Wright says his ten-year investigation into terrorism financing by Yassin Al-Qadi - whom he called bin Laden's banker - had been repeatedly shut down, that he had been censured for pushing it, and that if he had been able to continue and shut down the funding to al Qaeda, 9/11 would not have happened.
    • June 2002. Indira Singh is dismissed from JP Morgan.
    • June 2002. FBI validates everything Singh has said about Ptech, and passes her a copy of a news segment on Ptech by Joe Bergantino of WBZ TV, a CBS affiliate in Boston, which is set to air on September 11, 2002. Toward the end of his investigation, Bergantino contacts Rita Katz of the SITE Institute to validate some information. A former colleague of Katz notifies the White House that Bergantino's program will break the Ptech story.22
    • August, 2002. The White House intervenes to quash the story, and it never airs. Singh and Bergantino suspect that Jeff Goins, a Ptech vendor, makes a deal with Osama Ziade around this time. Goins handles an active White House account with Ptech, and he, too, alerts the WH about the story. Singh learns that the WH prevented several other journalists from going ahead with the Ptech story, including ABC's Brian Ross and John Miller,23 and NBC's Lisa Myers.24 Singh writes an Advisory Report on Ptech and, acting on information from Jeff Goins, she advises GHWB in that report that there is a related threat on President GWB's life.
    • September 2002. Singh delivers her report to GHWB. The persons of interest at Ptech remove their files and leave.
    • November 2002. Still no raid. Singh threatens to send her report to ten Chief Intelligence Officers per month until something is done (i.e., until Ptech is raided). She begins by personally bringing the Ptech story to Charlie Lewis, a Chief Technology Architect for Air Products and Chemicals (a powerful company which had earned over 5.7 billion dollars in sales during 2000); to the CIO ofGartner (a major enterprise architecture / IT firm); to the CIO of the U.S. Department of Defense; and to John Osterholz, DOD Director of Architecture and Interoperability.
    • December 6, 2002. Ptech is raided by Operation Greenquest, but the White House announces that Ptech is clean - on the very day of the raid: "The material has been reviewed by the appropriate government agencies, and they have detected absolutely nothing in their reports to the White House that would lead to any concern about any of the products purchased from (Ptech)."
      http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea...1206-4.html#17.
    • April 2003. Singh is debriefed at the National Threat Assessment Center (CERT).

    From Wall Street to the Wilderness
    Early in the game, as the shady background of Ptech began to emerge, Indira Singh came to a point of decision. Should she go forward with Ptech's product, or reject the company? Were the allegations about Ptech serious, or were they disinformation from competitors engaged in commerce interference? She sought out the FBI agent to whom Jeff Goins had spoken. He sent her a video documentary produced by Joe Bergantino for WBZ TV, a CBS affiliate in Boston, about an Islamist charity called CARE International.

    "The people in the video that the FBI were looking for right after 9/11 were Ptech employees: Muhammed Mubayyid and Suheil Laher, who had also worked for CARE International. But this was not the Care International everyone knows. This CARE listed its corporate office in the same suite as Al Khifah's Boston office25 - whose more famous location was the Al-Khifah Refugee Centre in Brooklyn's Atlantic Avenue, where mujaheddin recruits were processed for the CIA's Afghani "Operation Cyclone." It was later named as the locus of the 1993 conspiracy to bomb the World Trade Center.26 Muhammed Mubayyid, a Ptech employee and former treasurer of CARE, has donated money to Al Khifah's Brooklyn office.
    Recall the notorious intransigence of the FBI in the 1993 WTC case - using Egyptian informant Emad Salem, the Bureau had successfully infiltrated the terrorist cell responsible for the bombing and secretly recorded myriad hours of the cell's planning discussions. It has never given a satisfactory account of its failure to act on that abundant advance information. As documented in Crossing The Rubicon, the same deeply disturbing obstructionism pervades the behavior of middle and high officials in the FBI's before and after 9/11/01.
    This is the same FBI.
    Indira took Joe Bergantino's video report down to Virginia and interviewed Ptech employees herself. Having confirmed fears, she demanded the FBI agent who gave her Bergantino's report re-open an investigation into Ptech. He said he couldn't. She told him to tell his supervisor. He already had, and was told there was nothing they could do. The FBI was one of Ptech's clients.
    Her next stop was Mark Coughlin, the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at JP Morgan Chase. His particular position equipped him to understand the kind of damage the firm might suffer if it were to adopt a malicious program with Ptech's computational power. Moved and alarmed, Coughlin called Security, the General Auditor, and the CEO.
    They contacted the FBI - at a very high level - who validated all of Indira Singh's claims about Ptech.

    Coughlin was shaken. He sent her to William Moran, the General Auditor, who refused to meet with her until she had been debriefed by his security people. "They treated me like I was crazy, like I was the terrorist." And when the meeting finally happened, it was an Orwellian horror show. He asked where she had gotten her information, and as she named her individual sources Moran answered each name the same way, over and over: "That person should be killed... that person should be killed… that person should be killed."27
    Hateful words, motivated by a terrible fear of the truth.

    CODA: Knowledge is Power
    The computational power of the Ptech evolution of PROMIS software represents of a daunting new surveillance-and-intervention capability in the hands of the same elites who planned 9/11, prosecute the subsequent resource wars, and are presiding over what may become a full economic and military disaster for the resource-consuming citizens of America and the world. Since the "War On Terror" and this coming dollar / natural gas collapse will necessitate new levels of domestic repression, this is just the capability those elites require. Ptech is Total Information Awareness.

    It combines datamining, artificial intelligence, and "interoperability," the capacity for one program to read, operate, and modify the source codes of other programs. Datamining is a technique for detecting and extracting meaningful patterns hidden within vast quantities of apparently meaningless data. Applications include policing and case management (where PROMIS -- Prosecutor's Management Information System began), aviation (Mitre), banking and risk management (JP Morgan), enterprise architecture and knowledge management (Popkin), the gathering and sifting of political and industrial intelligence information (FBI, RCMP, et al.), and a wide range of military applications (NORAD, Navy, etc.).
    Programs based on datamining are powerful analytical tools; finding meaningful patterns in an ocean of information is very useful. But when such a tool is driven by a high-caliber artificial intelligence core, its power gets spooky. The datamining capability becomes a smart search tool of the AI program, and the system begins to learn.
    In recent decades, great strides have been made by the mutually fertile disciplines of mathematics, computer science, and neuroscience. Among the results has been a new discipline called cognitive neuroscience, which constitutes a powerful new understanding of the way the human brain works (see Churchland, Gazzaniga, etc.) While this has illuminated some very fundamental and grand issues of philosophy, it also has applications so practical that they have reshaped our world. "Neural Network" programming is modeled on the computational techniques used by the human brain - an electrochemical computer that uses neurons instead of semiconductors; the firing or non-firing of neurons instead of ones and zeros.
    With neural networking, software has become much smarter than it had been. Now it can perform multiple, related operations at the same time through parallel processing; now it can learn from setbacks, and use genetic algorithms to evolve its way out of limitations. Now it can respond to more kinds of data from the electronic environment, including "fuzzy" values that don't come in discreet numerical packages. This kind of computational power supports an inference engine that can digest the mined data into results that are not only descriptive of the system's present state but predictive for imminent and, to some degree, even middle-term outcomes. That's why the same family of programs that does enterprise architecture, which is descriptive (and prescriptive if you take its descriptions as a mandate for cutting costs by firing people - "process management"), comes to include risk management software, which is predictive of the future. It extrapolates from current trends in a more than quantitative way.
    Conventional electronic surveillance finds patterns in the data of other instruments; Ptech's Framework can exploit the patterns it detects and extrapolate future probabilities. Then it can integrate itself with the computers from which it's getting the information and intervene in their functioning. The result is a tool for surveillance and intervention. The program can identify suspect streams of cash in a banking network and allow a bank officer to freeze the suspect assets. Of course, a user could direct the same program to prevent detection. It can discover salient anomalies in a person's movements through a city and either flag those anomalies for further scrutiny, or erase them from the record. And it can find errant flights in an air traffic map and initiate an intercept response. Or not.
    Additional Reading on PROMIS and Its Evolutions:



    1 Crossing the Rubicon, p. 444 (quoting from Air War Over America, p. 59): "Could Deskins and her colleagues have been confused by one of the radar injects left in place by the maestro? A subsequent statement by General Arnold suggests that at least some of the exercises continued to run well into the attacks. United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center at 9:03 AM with 65 people aboard. Two 767s were gone, and it was anyone's guess what might happen next. "I thought it might be prudent to pull out of the exercise [Vigilant Guardian] which we did." Arnold says. "We called NORAD, and they were well aware of what had happened obviously. … As we pulled out of the exercise we were getting calls about United Flight 93 and we were worried about that." Here Arnold states that Vigilant Guardian was not terminated until about the same time that the first reports of Flight 93's hijacking, which we have already established occurred at around 9:16 or 54 minutes after it had been known that Flight 11 was a hijack. Why did it take so long?"

    What this all means is that, according to all official accounts, we have the exercises called off by 9:16 - well before 9:25 when "Phantom Flight 11" comes on the scene [-MK].

    6 National Commission On Terrorist Attacks Upon The United States. Public Hearing
    Wednesday, July 9, 2003. 253 Russell Senate Office Building, Washington, DC
    Panel 1: Terrorism, Al Qaeda, And The Muslim World. Testimony of Dr. Mamoun Fandy: "Prince Nayef of Saudi Arabia finally admitted that the Muslim Brotherhood is the mother of all problems in the Arab world. And Saudi Arabia hosted the Muslim Brotherhood during the Arab Cold War that was between Nasser and King Faisal in the '70s. And, in fact, the Muslim Brotherhood, one can argue that they hijacked the total educational Saudi system and turned it around to produce what we know as al Qaeda. The Muslim Brotherhood was the first Islamic organization with global reach, in fact. With its headquarters now next to CENTCOM in Qatar, under Sheikh Qaradawi, practically the Muslim Brotherhood has global reach. It has offices in Germany. It has offices in Virginia next door. It has offices in Yemen and other places. So unless we really consider the Muslim Brotherhood as part of that larger network, we fail to understand this whole organization. The Muslim Brotherhood is responsible for the civil war in Algeria, responsible for its civil war in Yemen, and responsible for the current situation that we see in Egypt and in Saudi Arabia."

    7 See Marc Erikson, "Islamism, fascism and terrorism (Part 2 of 3)," Asia Times, November 5, 2002: "During the 1936-39 Arab Revolt, Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, head of German military intelligence, sent agents and money to support the Palestine uprising against the British, as did Muslim Brotherhood founder and "supreme guide" Hassan al-Banna. A key individual in the fascist-Islamist nexus and go-between for the Nazis and al-Banna became the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el-Husseini - incidentally the later mentor (from 1946 onward) of a young firebrand by the name of Yasser Arafat.
    "Having fled from Palestine to Iraq, el-Husseini assisted there in the short-lived April 1941 Nazi-inspired and financed anti-British coup. By June 1941, British forces had reasserted control in Baghdad and the mufti was on the run again, this time via Tehran and Rome to Berlin, to a hero's welcome. He remained in Germany as an honored guest and valuable intelligence and propaganda asset through most of the war, met with Hitler on several occasions, and personally recruited leading members of the Bosnian-Muslim "Hanjar" (saber) division of the Waffen SS.
    "Another valued World War II Nazi collaborator was Youssef Nada, current board chairman of al-Taqwa (Nada Management), the Lugano, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, and Bahamas-based financial services outfit accused by the US Treasury Department of money laundering for and financing of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda."

    9 John Buchanan and Stacey Michael, "Bush - Nazi Dealings Continued Until 1951 - Federal Documents," The New Hampshire Gazette Vol. 248, No. 3, November 7, 2003: "After the seizures in late 1942 of five U.S. enterprises he managed on behalf of Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, failed to divest himself of more than a dozen "enemy national" relationships that continued until as late as 1951, newly-discovered U.S. government documents reveal.
    Furthermore, the records show that Bush and his colleagues routinely attempted to conceal their activities from government investigators.
    Bush's partners in the secret web of Thyssen-controlled ventures included former New York Governor W. Averell Harriman and his younger brother, E. Roland Harriman. Their quarter-century of Nazi financial transactions, from 1924-1951, were conducted by the New York private banking firm, Brown Brothers Harriman.
    The White House did not return phone calls seeking comment.
    Although the additional seizures under the Trading with the Enemy Act did not take place until after the war, documents from The National Archives and Library of Congress confirm that Bush and his partners continued their Nazi dealings unabated."
    10 Stephen Schwartz, "Wahhabis in the Old Dominion: What the federal raids in Northern Virginia uncovered,"Weekly Standard 04/08/2002, Volume 007, Issue 29
    [EXCERPT: ] The keystone of the Saudi-sponsored Northern Virginia network is the Saar Foundation, created by Suleiman Abdul Al-Aziz al-Rajhi, a scion of one of the richest Saudi families. The Saar Foundation is connected to Al-Taqwa, a shell company formerly based in Switzerland, where its leading figures included a notorious neo-Nazi and Islamist, Ahmed Huber. Subsequently moved to the United States, Al-Taqwa was shut down after September 11 and its assets frozen by U.S. presidential order. But operations continued, as the Wahhabi lobby shifted to its backup institutions here.
    Saar has also been linked to Khalid bin Mahfouz, former lead financial adviser to the Saudi royal family and ex-head of the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia. Mahfouz has been named by French intelligence as a backer of Osama bin Laden; Mahfouz endowed the Muwafaq Foundation, which U.S. authorities confirm was an arm of bin Laden's terror organization. Muwafaq's former chief, Yassin al-Qadi, oversaw the financial penetration of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania by Wahhabi terrorists in the late 1990s.
    […]

    A major personality on the ground in Virginia is an individual named Jamal Barzinji, whose office in Herndon was a major target of the raids. In 1980, he was listed in local public records as a representative of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), an arm of the Saudi regime with offices in Virginia. WAMY has been deeply involved in providing cover for Wahhabi terrorism. The 2002 entry in the U.S. Business Directory lists the president of the WAMY office in Annandale, Va., as Abdula bin Laden--the terrorist's younger brother.
    Barzinji serves as a trustee and officer of the Amana Mutual Funds Trust, a growth and income mutual fund headquartered in Bellingham, Wash., conveniently near the Canadian border. Amana's board also includes Yaqub Mirza, a Pakistani physicist who shares Barzinji's Herndon office address and who is widely described as a financial genius. Another board member and tenant in the Herndon office is Samir Salah. He formerly ran a branch of Al-Taqwa in the Caribbean, heads a financial firm linked to Saar, and directs Dar al-Hijra, a mosque in Falls Church, Va., notable for hardline Wahhabi preaching. Salah is also deeply involved with Taibah International Aid Association, a Virginia charity with a Bosnian branch that is being investigated by authorities in Sarajevo.
    11 "Another exhibit from the defense motion is an affidavit filed by Edwin Angeles, a founder of Abu Sayyaf, a Filipino terrorist group. Angeles, who was assassinated by former comrades, wrote in 1996 that he was at a 1991 meeting in Davao City, attended by Yousef, Murad and Nichols, at which, they discussed 'bombing activities, providing firearms and ammo' to terrorists and 'training in bomb making and handling' of explosives. Nichols, he claimed, was introduced to him as 'the farmer.'"

    "I believe that Dick Cheney also had the ability using evolutions of the PROMIS software, to penetrate and override any other radar computer or communications system in the government."
    - Mike Ruppert, in "Summation: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury," from Crossing The Rubicon, p.592
    [At the heart of our story is a program (we'll call it Ptech, after the company that produced it) that combines artificial intelligence, datamining, and "interoperability," the capacity for one program to read, operate, and modify the source codes of other programs. The computational power of the Ptech evolution of PROMIS represents a daunting new surveillance-and-intervention capability in the hands of the same elites who planned 9/11, prosecute the subsequent resource wars, and are presiding over what may become a full economic and military disaster for the resource-consuming citizens of America and the world. Since the "War On Terror" and the coming dollar/fossil fuel collapse will necessitate new levels of domestic repression, this is just the capability those elites require. Ptech is the functional equivalent of Total Information Awareness.
    The human side of Ptech is where the thievery and murder come in: among the financiers and programmers of Ptech are apparent members of an international network of organized criminals involved in decades of narcotraffic, gunrunning, money laundering, and terrorism. Their personal and professional connections reach up into the highest levels of the American government, and their activities are still underway.
    The issue of Saudi complicity in the attacks of 9/11 has played out into two different views. The first is the idea that the Saudis were solely responsible. This has been pumped up by Fox News and largely accepted as gospel in certain parts of the mainstream media. The second view is that the Saudis were set up to take the fall for having pulled off 9/11, covering up U.S. complicity. Neither view is correct, and both depend on a mistaken view of that country as a monolithic, homogeneous actor on the world stage. The opposite is true.
    At the top of Arabian society is the giant royal House of Saud, descendants of Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud, a charismatic warlord who used religious and marital alliances to consolidate his military conquests and, eventually, found a modern state on the Arabian Peninsula in 1932. Ibn Saud's success was partially dependent on his powerful religious allies, the inheritors of a doctrinaire form of Islam founded by the cleric Mohammed bin Abdul Wahhab (1702 - 1793). That coalition became increasingly unstable with the massive influx of oil wealth that began shortly after the first Arabian discoveries by SoCal (now Chevron) and Texaco, also in the 1930's.
    Like virtually all Islamic states, Saudi Arabia has been the target of ongoing efforts by American intelligence aimed at suppressing any stirrings of incipient secular leftism. This is opposed, we believe, to what may be convenient and clandestine support for "al-Qaeda" terrorists (i.e. fundamentalists), acting as US proxies, who might destabilize the kingdom in advance of the US carving off only those regions with oil reserves. Socially polarized oil wealth, the ever-changing Arab-Israeli conflict, and American geopolitical maneuvering configure a daunting matrix of hidden forces that can't be fully understood or managed - not least because the intelligence elements are often double or triple agents with inscrutable loyalties.
    The Ptech story is of intense interest for its implications about US government guilt in 9/11. As Ralph Schoenman, Michel Chossudovsky, Paul Thompson and others have argued, "al Qaeda" is not only traceable to CIA activity in Pakistan and Afghanistan during the Soviet period, it is also a current tool of American imperial ambitions. That directly contradicts the official story, in which al Qaeda is the foreign devil incarnate, a militant hate group formed straight from the soil of Saudi ideology - with no economic grievances, no interests in common with anyone in the non-Muslim world, and above all, no connections to the United States through funding, personnel, armaments, drug trafficking, visa assistance, or communications. It certainly is a militant hate group, but the rank and file may be totally unaware of real connections between their own leaders and the people they oppose with their very lives. These disturbing links would be just as agonizing - and just as unthinkable - for American citizens as they would be for a militant Islamist teenager in a ski mask jumping hurdles at some secret training camp.
    Beneficiaries of the Ptech-connected MAK charities, the young men in Hezbollah and Hamas are fighting in land disputes, not heady ideological quests. They are also bitter, bereaved, murderous bigots with all the psychic rigidity and hysteria found in fundamentalists from Oklahoma to Hebron to Jeddah. Their hatred of the American national security state is surely absolute, but they are also beneficiaries of the Pentagon's need for an Enemy. That means that they can expect the United States to provide covert help of some kind at crucial points in the game. And the most despicable element in the American side of that process is the Bush-Cheney junta itself, which used its own assets inside the terrorist network associated with Osama bin Laden to murder three thousand civilians in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania as a pretext for unending warfare. This was done for reasons of state. But it was also done for personal gratifications including vast sums of money, permanent blackmail over those involved, and a heroin-like rush of criminally insane individual power. Sophisticated or naïve, cynical or grandiose and idealistic, each person involved betrayed humanity. And the apparatus that permitted this remains in place - as do most of the personnel.
    The solution to the Ptech problem is not just to get all that creepy software the hell off the computers. The bigger solution is transparency and disclosure, de-militarization and political internationalism; localization of production and exchange; and a more equitable distribution of resources and opportunity. As Stan Goff has explained in these pages, the word opportunity does not necessarily refer to competition for purchasing power and domination. It means the opportunity to grow Haitian rice in Haiti and sell it in Haiti, without having to contend with the export dumping of American corporate agribusiness. It means the chance to maintain a tribal existence in an Afghanistan that is neither the proving ground for a US-Soviet proxy war nor the playground of American-funded drug lords. And though all ideals are warped by the rigors of practice, this was the point of President Kennedy's de-escalation in Laos, his Alliance for Progress in Latin America, and his refusal to invade Cuba:
    What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children--not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women--not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.
    Now let's get back to the business of sticking up for people who were murdered on 9/11 and in its aftermath, and to diminishing the present danger. - JAH].
    January 27, 2005, PST 0900 (FTW) - Ptech - the software company whose major investors and directors are strongly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood - produced software that derived from PROMIS, had an artificial intelligence core, and was installed on virtually every computer system of the U.S. government and its military agencies on September 11, 2001.
    This included the White House, Treasury Department (Secret Service), Air Force, FAA, CIA, FBI, both houses of Congress, Navy, Department of Energy, IRS, Booz Allen Hamilton, IBM, Enron and more.
    Whoever plotted 9/11 definitely viewed the FAA as an enemy that morning. Overriding FAA systems would be the most effective way to ensure the attacks were successful. To do this, the FAA needed an evolution of PROMIS software installed on their systems and Ptech was just that; the White House & Secret Service had the same software on their systems - likely a superior modified version capable of "surveillance and intervention" functions.
    Ptech is enterprise architecture software, which Indira planned on customizing to use as "risk architecture" software.
    Enterprise architecture software is designed with the express purpose of knowing everything that is going on throughout the entirety of the enterprise in real-time. In the case of Ptech software installed on Whitehouse, Secret Service, Air Force and FAA systems, the enterprise included all of the data produced by those agencies in real-time.
    Maybe this is why Ari Fleischer stated the Whitehouse didn't view Ptech as a threat; quite to the contrary.1 The Ptech software was a vital asset needed for the White House to execute the 9/11 plot, and may still be in place for possible use against professionals in government and military positions trying to do their jobs in the future.
    The FAA & Ptech
    In the 9/11 Commission report a "phantom flight 11" was added to the official version of what happened that day. A tape was played at the final commission hearing on June 17, 2004, of a woman from the FAA telling NORAD that flight 11 was still airborne at 9:24 am, long after it had actually struck the WTC. Originally this was reported to be the time when the FAA notified NORAD that flight 77 was off course and headed to the Pentagon.

    This information was used by the commission to claim NORAD had never been informed that flight 77 was headed towards Washington D.C., leaving the FAA holding the bag for the penetration of the most heavily guarded airspace in the world. The commission's report states they were "unable to identify the source of this mistaken FAA information."

    It has been clearly documented that "false blips," or radar injects, were placed on FAA radar screens on the morning of 9/11 as part of the Air Force war games that morning.2 "Phantom flight 11" fits the description of a "false blip." If it was, in fact, a radar inject, that would explain why the 9/11 commission was unable to locate the source of the "mistaken FAA information." The 9/11 war games are classified and specific information regarding such details is not publicly available. We do know by the time "phantom flight 11" appeared on FAA screens - 9:24 am - the war games had reportedly been called off.3
    So what was it doing there?
    FTW's position is that "phantom flight 11" was injected onto FAA radar screens by "the maestro"4 using Ptech software to override FAA systems. Let's examine the feasibility of such a scenario.
    Ptech had been working on the data blueprint of the FAA's entire network for 2 years prior to 9/11. Their confidential business plan lays out just how much access they had to the FAA's data systems.
    Ptech Inc. Confidential Business Plan: Page 37 of 46 11/7/2001
    The FAA recognized the need for leveraging its IT investment, with a means of centralizing activities and introducing consistency and compatibility within the operating systems environment. A Ptech consulting team was organized to use activity modeling to identify key functions that could be examined for improvement in network management, network security, configuration management, fault management, performance management, application administration, network accounting management, and user help desk operations.5
    What the above tells us is that Ptech had access to the entire informational barn door of the FAA's data systems. In an amazing exchange published in part 1 of this series,FTW editor Jamey Hecht was able to confirm a central thesis of Crossing the Rubiconwhile interviewing Wall St. Whistleblower Indira Singh. Indira is an IT professional who started First Boston's first Information Technology group in 1975 and had worked on Wall St. until 2002. She's been an IT consultant for Banker's Trust, the U.N., JP Morgan, and American Express. In 1988 she started TibetNet - a derivative of DARPA's Internet, the service you are likely reading this report on at the moment. The exchange was as follows:
    Jamey Hecht: You said at the 9/11 Citizens' Commission hearings, you mentioned - its on page 139 of transcript - that Ptech was with Mitre Corporation in the basement of the FAA for 2 years prior to 9/11 and their specific job was to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and the Air Force, in case of an emergency.

    Indira Singh: Yes, I have a good diagram for that…

    Jamey Hecht: And that relationship had been going on mediated by Ptech for 2 years prior to 9/11. You elsewhere say that the Secret Service is among the government entities that had a contract with Ptech. Mike Ruppert's thesis in Crossing the Rubicon, as you know, is that the software that was running information between FAA & NORAD was superseded by a parallel subsuming version of itself that was being run by the Secret Service on state of the art parallel equipment in the PEOC with a nucleus of Secret Service personnel around Cheney.
    …In your view, might it have been the case that Cheney was using Ptech to surveil the function of the people who wanted to do their jobs on the day of 9/11 in FAA & NORAD, and then intervene to turn off the legitimate response?
    Indira Singh: Is it possible from a software standpoint? Absolutely it's possible. Did he (Cheney) have such a capability? I don't know. But that's the ideal risk scenario - to have an over-arching view of what's going on in data. That's exactly what I wanted for JP Morgan.
    You know what's ironic about this; I wanted to take my operational risk blueprint which is for an operational event going wrong and I wanted to make it generic for extreme event risk to surveil across intelligence networks. What you're describing is something that I said, 'boy if we had this in place maybe 9/11 wouldn't have happened.' When I was going down to In-Q-Tel and getting these guys excited about creating an extreme event risk blueprint to do this, I'm thinking of doing exactly what you're saying Cheney might have already had! [emphasis added]
    -- end of transcript
    Ptech was working with Mitre Corp. in the FAA and, according to Indira, Ptech was the Alpha dog in that relationship. Mitre has provided simulation & testing technologies for the Navy.6 They provide multiple FAA technologies and boast in their annual reports that their two biggest clients are DOD & FAA. Mitre knew the FAA's technological enterprise inside and out, including any simulation-and-testing (war game) technology operated by the FAA.
    This was the perfect marriage to ensure that the capacity to covertly intervene in FAA operations on 9/11 existed - in the middle of simulated war games.It is also the perfect marriage to ensure that the command and control of these capabilities was readily available to Dick Cheney via Secret Service Ptech software in the Presidential Emergency Operations Center, the bunker to which Cheney was "rushed" by the Secret Service. As already pointed out in part 1 of this series, Ptech does what Total Information Awareness (TIA, the DARPA program to monitor all electronic transactions in real-time) is supposed to do. (There are an undetermined number of other software programs in the hands of an undetermined number of corporations also capable of this. Again, enterprise architecture software is designed with the express purpose of knowing everything that is going on throughout the entirety of the "enterprise" in real-time.
    In the case of Ptech software, installed on White House, Secret Service, Air Force and FAA systems (as well as most American military agencies), the enterprise included all of the real-time data of the above mentioned agencies. Indira has confirmed Ptech software could have been set up to allow Dick Cheney to surveil and intervene on FAA radar screens.
    As documented by former Bush counter-terrorism advisor Richard Clarke in his book,Against All Enemies, on 9/11 the Secret Service had the capability of seeing FAA radar screens in real time; and as documented by Mike Ruppert in Crossing the Rubicon, Secret Service has the authority to take supreme command over any and all American agencies - including the Air Force.
    9/11 is a prime example of what Indira Singh calls "extreme event risk." In the months prior to the attack, she was working on a program capable of providing data in real time to prevent these types of events from happening. She had pitched this very idea just one week before 9/11 at In-Q-Tel Headquarters (CIA) in Virginia, giving a final presentation for an ICH (Interoperability Clearinghouse) project code named "Blue Prophet." Indira explained to CIA why she was supporting ICH in this project.
    She told the In-Q-Tel team, "The intelligence and other agencies need this now." One of the men with CIA looked at Indira with what she describes as the "blackest, coldest look anyone has ever given her."
    They weren't interested in Blue Prophet's software for interoperability or risk, but rather the data it would produce because the data would point in the right directions. That data was very predictive, producing quality real-time intelligence. This is one week before 9/11. If In-Q-Tel already had this capability, it's no wonder they would be wary of someone like Indira - the woman from New York in Risk Management who resided a few minutes' walk from the Twin Towers.
    Debriefed by Secret Service - looking for a PROMIS
    It was Indira Singh whose investigative research into Ptech laid the groundwork for this series. One of the first reporters Indira contacted was Joe Bergantino, a 20-year veteran investigative reporter for a CBS affiliate in Boston.

    "There are some great people in mainstream media," says Indira, and according to her, Joe is one of them. Joe told her that Ptech's CEO Oussama Ziade had stated, "If it wasn't for that woman in New York, none of this (the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) raid) would be happening". Neither Joe nor Indira liked the way that sounded.
    Joe contacted Senator Grassley's office. A Secret Service agent, Charlie Bopp, was reassigned to Grassley's office, and put in charge of the Ptech file. An initial meeting was scheduled with Indira in January 2003.
    Indira showed up with what she called, "A major Ground Zero attitude." She was supposed to be on the 106th floor of the WTC on 9/11 but instead responded as a civilian EMT that morning. This was very personal for her. Charlie understood and nevertheless made the arrangements for a debriefing at the Secret Service's National Threat Assessment Center (NTAC) in April 2003.
    During the debriefing Indira was asked by a member of the Secret Service, "Is Ptech PROMIS?"
    "I already knew what had happened to Danny Casolaro, and they were asking me if I had copies of Ptech," Indira told FTW.
    Danny Casolaro was the investigative journalist mysteriously "suicided" in a West Virginia hotel room while investigating the theft of PROMIS software. Casolaro's investigation had uncovered a shadowy network he called "the Octopus" that seemed to have its hands in everything from drug trafficking and money laundering, all the way up to political assassinations and coups d'etat. When Casolaro's body was discovered, his arms were violently slashed and all the documents he traveled with were missing. He had told friends and relatives if anything happened to him they shouldn't believe it was by accident.

    Being asked such a loaded question, she responded with her Ground Zero attitude saying:

    "You have a copy of the software, why don't you tell me? This is not about the software guys, ok - was it a PROMIS? It was a place you could hide a PROMIS, a place you can drop a PROMIS."

    Indira told FTW, "I was going to use Ptech software for risk surveillance at JP Morgan - Duh!"
    By the very nature of risk surveillance, it is necessary to use PROMIS progeny based on artificial intelligence to achieve the capabilities we are describing. Charlie Bopp and those present for Indira's debriefing knew this, but they wanted to talk about the software and not the people behind the software. That is extremely significant. In part 1 of this series we've shown how the major people behind Ptech link to the Muslim Brotherhood, elements of the Saudi Royal Family, as well as Dick Cheney and the powerful American 'Christian' cult known as "The Fellowship," or, "The Family."
    Indira wanted to name names, but Charlie wouldn't let her. "We can't investigate the people behind Ptech," said Charlie. "Just trust me, let's focus on the software." They gave no reasoning for this, they just said, "we can't."
    "Well if you can't talk about the people behind this, it's a waste of time because with software like that you can't find trapdoors now. This is live stuff!" Singh toldFTW. "You can't prove an intelligent agent [a small software component that reaches out to claim or insert information from another system - Ed.] went out and sent information somewhere. It's like proving you ate a piece of cake when you were 10 years old, unless you have video of it, it's not going to happen. It's that ephemeral." [emphasis added]
    In other words, PROMIS-based activity leaves no footprints.
    This means trapdoors are no longer necessary, or at least, no longer detectable. If Indira is correct, there would have been no "fingerprints" left of any kind showing just what Ptech software was used for on 9/11 and who used it.
    "These guys debriefing me were from Military Intel, so they were trying to find out what I knew," says Singh. According to her, August of 2002 (the month before the story on Ptech was shut down by the White House, and three months before Ptech was raided) was a significant month. There were supposedly leaks of some kind coming out of the Persian Gulf. She was asked if Ptech software could have been the source of those leaks.
    Singh responded, "Well if Military Intel are using Ptech in the Gulf, obviously! YES!"
    During one of the initial meetings Indira threw a hat on the table from FDNY Engine 4, Ladder 15 and said, "I want you to put this on your desk, so any time you think of playing some political games you remember there were real people down there."
    Indira Singh was done playing games.
    Muslim Brotherhood, Christian Cultists, and Nazis
    In part 1 of this series we documented the extensive ties from the Muslim Brotherhood running through Ptech. The Brotherhood was founded by Hassan Al-Banna and expanded with the help of Mahmoud Abu Saud of the House of Saud.7

    This extensive network runs through various shell organizations and charities with interlocking boards, such as the New Jersey based real estate investment company BMI, CARE International, and the Northern Virginia based SAAR network - named after al Sulaiman Abdul Al-Aziz al-Rajhi, a scion of one of Saudi Arabia's richest families. Heading the SAAR network (renamed Safa) is Yakub Mirza, who also sits on the board of Ptech. It is of interest to note that claims against Al-Rajhi Banking & Investment Corp. for funding and supporting terrorism were recently dismissed by U.S. District Judge Richard Casey.
    One of the central funding mechanisms in this nexus is the Al Taqwa Bank of Switzerland - now Nada Management - which the Department of Treasury says funds Al Qaeda.
    Hitler supporter Albert Friedrich Armand Huber (aka Ahmed Huber) and Youseff Nada sit on the board of Al Taqwa. Nada reportedly helped the Grand Mufti escape from Nazi Germany when the Third Reich was teetering on the brink of collapse, and Ahmed Huber knew the Grand Mufti quite well; so well in fact, it was the Mufti who convinced Huber to convert to (the Brotherhood's form of) Islam.
    Huber has spoken publicly of a "New Right" marriage of Nazi ideology and Islamist fascism. He has both a picture of Adolph Hitler and Osama bin Laden in his Swiss home.
    Al Taqwa is a "hawala," a bank conducting transactions leaving no paper trail through a "good faith" global network that transfers funds - no questions asked.8 Bank Al Taqwa is located in the Bahamas; the parent company, Nada Management, is based in Lugarno, Switzerland, and is linked to the Royal Family of Liechtenstein.
    Al Taqwa has done business with Asat Trust. The now deceased Prince Emanuel von und zu Liechtenstein became a board member of Asat Trust in May 1970 and stayed until November 1990, when he was replaced by Martin Wachter, the trust's current director.9
    Asat Trust is on the American and U.N. terror list. According to the American Jewish Daily Forward, copies of business registration documents on file with authorities in Liechtenstein show that Asat Trust has been intimately involved with the Al Taqwa network during the last 30 years, registering changes in company names, personnel and financial structure.10
    Most frightening of all is that this network seems to have links back to the powerful American Christian cult known as "The Fellowship," or "The Family." This organization is tied to American 'Christian' men of high political power including John Ashcroft, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, multiple Congressional members and prominent business leaders. Some "Family" members have stated they would love to have Osama bin Laden as a guest speaker because of the covenant he has with his followers. Doug Coe, the Family's leader who was praised by George H.W. Bush at the 1990 National Prayer Breakfast for his "quiet diplomacy," openly admires Hitler's "covenant."11
    Yassin Al Qadi - the Saudi terrorist financier who funded Ptech and BMI - claimed to have met Dick Cheney in Jeddah before he became Vice President and the two "still share cordial relations." When Cheney's office was asked to comment on this, spokeswoman Jennifer Miller Wise stated the Vice President gave her no reason to believe he had met with Al Qadi before he assumed office.12
    That is a non-answer; "no reason to believe" he met Al Qadi leaves no reason to believe he didn't. Regardless, there are more transparent connections between elements of Saudi and American elites.
    In November of 2001, Halliburton was awarded a $140 million contract to develop an oil field in Saudi Arabia by the kingdom's state-owned petroleum firm, Saudi Aramco, and a Halliburton subsidiary, Kellogg Brown & Root, along with two Japanese firms, hired by the Saudis to build a $40 million ethylene plant.13
    Dick Cheney is, of course, the former CEO of Haliburton.
    As recently as 1991 ARAMCO had Khalid bin Mahfouz sitting on its Supreme Council or board of directors. Mahfouz, Saudi Arabia's former owner of the nation's largest bank, has been reported in several places to be Osama bin Laden's brother in law. However, he has denied this and brought intense legal pressure to bear demanding retractions of that allegation.14 He also denies any involvement in financing terror organizations.
    One journalist who was sued by bin Mahfouz, Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, is counter suing in New York Federal Court. She is the only one of some 30 authors not to retract claims that Mahfouz has financed Al Qaeda operations as published in her book, Funding Evil: How Terrorism is Financed and How to Stop it.
    Khalid bin Mahfouz has major partnership investments with the multi-billion dollar BinLadin Group of companies and is a former director of BCCI, the infamous criminal drug-money laundering bank which performed a number of very useful services for the CIA before its 1991 collapse under criminal investigation by the legal apparatus of multiple countries.15
    George Herbert Walker Bush, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney all have extensive ties to the Saudi Royal family and Saudi elites, who in turn have questionable ties to terrorist financiers such as Yassin al-Qadi. It is therefore not unreasonable for Dick Cheney to have met al-Qadi while in Jeddah while CEO of Haliburton.
    This is the reality of the world we live in; where a covert international power structure supercedes the interests of nation states, and the misnomer of "national security" is used to keep this network's secrets hidden from the prying eyes of authentic journalists and the public at large.

    1 On the very day the FBI raids Ptech, Ari Fleischer - president Bush's press secretary - gives Ptech a "clean bill of health" by stating: "The material has been reviewed by the appropriate government agencies, and they have detected absolutely nothing in their reports to the White House that would lead to any concern about any of the products purchased from (Ptech)."

    Ptech and the Journey of a Wall Street Whistleblower


    Accountability, Begin Questioning

    The Journey of a Wall Street Whistleblower
    A 911truth.org Exclusive Report
    By Michael Kane
    “Ptech had all the markings,” said Indira Singh. All the markings of a CIA front company.
    “I think there is a CIA within the CIA,” Indira told From the Wilderness (FTW). “I think there is a Shadow CIA that does the Iran-Contra type of things–they get funding from illicit methods–and that the Saudi’s are in on it. They might have trained some operatives, and later it backfired – it was blowback within blowback, perhaps.”
    “What I do know, what the money trails do show, is that the Saudi’s are complicit. In other words, the ones that are extremely fundamentalist, the ones that promote Wahabiism-I’m not saying it’s all of them, but parts of them–are working hand-in-hand, lock step with elements within American intelligence whether it’s official or unofficial. There’s proof of that.”
    March 2, 2005 (911truth.org): Wall Street whistleblower Indira Singh has had her professional life ripped away from her because of keeping the promise she made to some 3,000 victim’s who died at Ground Zero on 9/11. She made that promise at Ground Zero on 9/11 as a civilian EMT. Indira was supposed to be on the 106th floor of the World Trade Center that morning, but she was late. “I made a promise,” said Indira during a lengthy FTWinterview, “that if anything fell into my lap, I wouldn’t look the other way–and I’m keeping that promise.”
    Something did fall into her lap . . . something big.
    Editor’s Note: In this special report, Michael Kane recounts the story of JP Morgan IT professional, Indira Singh, a heroic 9/11 whistleblower who was fired, harassed, and physically threatened for exposing the Saudi/terrorist-linked origins of one of the government’s most pervasive software systems, and thereby offering the 9/11 Commission more truth than it ever wanted to know.

    Indira is an IT professional who started First Boston’s Information Technology Group in 1970 and had worked on Wall Street up until 2002. She has been an IT consultant for Bank Trust, the U.N., JP Morgan, and American Express. In 1988 she started TibetNet, a derivative of the Defense Advanced Research Project (DARPA) Internet, the service on which you are likely reading this report at the moment.
    On 9/11/2001, Indira worked for JP Morgan in a field called Risk Management, involving computer systems and programs designed to keep JP Morgan’s entire information and financial structure safe. She had also worked with a Defense Advanced Research Project – DARPA-funded technology group, with close ties to the CIA. This provided her with contacts deep within the government and corporate America. She was working on a program for JP Morgan – the next generation of risk software – whose function was to think about all the information going on throughout the enterprise as bank business was being conducted worldwide.
    It would detect money laundering and other crimes in real time and then do something about it; perhaps alert an “intelligent” software agent or a person, or shutdown the transaction immediately. This capability could be accomplished by using an evolution of PROMIS software. FTW has extensively covered the PROMIS software controversy, the software stolen by the Justice Department from Inslaw which over the past two decades has evolved and merged with artificial intelligence.
    “We were moving into the realm of much smarter software – next generation software – that would collect information on the fly and sort of think about it,” said Indira. The CIA was interested in the technology behind Indira’s risk application at one point. So was the Defense Department.
    Indira’s vision was to create software that could respond to “extreme event risk.” 9/11 was an extreme event. Risk Management involves devising ways to stop big problems from happening throughout the enterprise. She needed a company to provide a key piece of this enterprise software
    “All the industry gurus recommended Ptech.”
    Indira was unsure whether Ptech was right. After all, they were a small company, and with software this expensive you couldn’t afford to choose wrong. But everywhere she looked boosted her confidence in Ptech, especially when viewing their list of prominent clients.
    The White House, Treasury Department (Secret Service), CIA, FBI, both houses of Congress, Air Force, Navy, Department of Energy, IRS, Booze Allen Hamilton, IBM, Enron and even NATO all used, and as of this writing, some still use Ptech software.
    IBM, a global strategic partner with JP Morgan, had selected Ptech for their Preferred Vendor program.
    All of this convinced Indira that Ptech was the right choice. After getting the extensive site clearance JP Morgan required, Indira invited Ptech to the premises for a one-day evaluation of their software. But according to Indira, everything was wrong that day. They didn’t come with anything needed to do the one-day evaluation, but Ptech’s chief scientist, Dr. Hussein Ibrahim, suggested to Indira that they develop the software on his laptop.
    “If you know how these things are conducted, that was a show stopper,” says Indira. Ptech would have been able to walk away with the blueprint to Indira’s program on their laptop, and JP Morgan would have been left with nothing. Indira decided Ibrahim’s proposition was a definite deal breaker.
    Risk blueprints worth millions of dollars aren’t given away at an introductory meeting; the industry doesn’t work that way. To this day Indira is unsure of why Ibrahim would have even suggested this. “He’s not a stupid man,” she said, “he knows this is not how business is conducted.”
    Her Investigation Begins
    With Ptech’s people still in the office, Indira called Roger Burlton, who runs Business Process Renewal in Vancouver. Roger told Indira, “Don’t let them out of your sight and don’t let them leave with anything.”
    This was coming from one of the men who recommended Ptech to Indira in December of 2001, and was using them himself. But a lot had transpired since then. This was now May of 2002; just two months earlier Yaqub Mirza, who was on the board of Ptech, was the target of a terror-financing raid. Indira tells this reporter that she felt Roger knew more at the time than he let on to.
    Roger recommended Indira speak to Jeff Goins, a former Ptech employee. This is where Indira first heard of Saudi terror financier Yasin Al Qadi and that he had been (and may have continued to be) an investor in Ptech. Al Qadi said he met Dick Cheney in Jeddah before he became Vice President, and that they still maintain “cordial relations.” Indira confirmed that Jeff had taken his concerns to the FBI. In short order, Indira was talking to the FBI agent Jeff had spoken with.
    “If there is an ongoing investigation that is fine,” Indira told the FBI, “but you have to give me something to hang my hat on to pass on to my superiors. Otherwise I’m just passing on propaganda and I won’t be caught dead doing that.” The FBI agent sent her a video produced by Joe Bergantino’ for CBS in Boston, on Care International.
    “The people in the video that the FBI were looking for right after 9/11 were Ptech employees.” Muhammed Mubayyid and Suheil Laheir, who were both Ptech employees, formerly worked for Care International.
    But this is not the Care everyone knows. This Care listed its corporate office in the same suite as Al Kifah’s Boston office. Al Kifah was a Muslim organization whose Brooklyn office was named as the locus of the 1993 conspiracy to bomb the World Trade Center. Muhammed Mubayyid, who is still employed by Ptech and used to be the treasurer for Care, once made a donation to Al Kifah’s Brooklyn office.
    We should not forget the FBI had completely infiltrated the terrorist cell responsible for the ’93 bombing with Egyptian informant Emad Salem. The FBI had dropped him from their payroll right when the informant himself was designing the bomb used in the WTC bombing.
    Before it was Al Kifah, Indira says, Care was part of Maktab al-Khidamat (MAK), the accounting mechanism put in place by the CIA in 1988 to pass BCCI money through to the Pakistani ISI when bin Laden was the U.S.-Intel “fair-haired boy.” In late 1993, Care and Al Kifah both launched efforts to make the Islamic religious movement more high-tech. A Care document announcing the project says, “It is the duty of every Muslim, especially those with the latest technical expertise from the U.S., to contribute this knowledge that Allah has bestowed on them.”
    So is that why MAK was being run out of Ptech under its new co-opted name, Care International?
    “Your country is not the country you think it is,” says Indira.
    She took Joe Bergantino’s report down to Virginia and interviewed Ptech employees herself – to get it straight from the horse’s mouth. Having further confirmed her worst nightmares, she demanded the FBI agent who gave her Bergantino’s report re-open an investigation into Ptech. He said he couldn’t. She told him to tell his supervisor. He already had, and was told there was nothing they could do.
    Remember, the FBI was one of Ptech’s clients – or was it the other way around? “What do you do when the FBI tells you, ‘Indira, you’re in a better position to investigate this than we are'”?
    Sent to the Principal’s Office
    Indira brought all of her information to Mark Coughlan, Chief Information Officer (CIO) at JP Morgan. Instantly he called Security, the General Auditor, and the CEO of JP Morgan/Chase. The next day Mark told Indira he had nightmares. “A CIO will know the type of damage that an enterprise architecture firm with that kind of software can do,” says Indira.
    They contacted the FBI. Mark informed her the FBI had confirmed everything she had put on the table.
    “Everything!” exclaimed Indira in shock. “Even all the bits and pieces I wasn’t sure about?” Mark sent Indira to the General Auditor.
    Before the General Auditor would meet with her she was sent through his security people. “They treated me like I was crazy, like I was a terrorist.” She finally met with Bill Moran, General Auditor of JP Morgan/Chase who, in no uncertain terms, threatened her. He asked where she had gotten her information. As she named her individual sources Moran said, “That person should be killed,” to each name she mentioned.
    According to Indira, the Chase mentality was, “Shut up and stay in your place.” Indira told this reporter that JP Morgan was a great corporation which encouraged individuality and creativity until it merged with Chase. However, Senate Investigations headed by Carl Levin revealed JP Morgan was one of the main banks involved in laundering drug money, as was Chase. Corruption was no stranger to JP Morgan, nor to Chase. Bill Moran told Indira if she shut up about Ptech, she would have a long and prosperous career at JP Morgan/Chase.
    Indira no longer works there.
    “But Indira, everyone knew what Ptech was about!”
    The same industry gurus who told Indira to use Ptech were now telling her, “But Indira, everyone knew what Ptech was about.”
    “Well I didn’t!” yelled Indira during her testimony to the first 9/11 Citizens Commission on September 9, 2003, in NYC, “and neither did the 3,000 that were murdered on 9/11.”
    What exactly does that mean? Everyone knew what?
    When Ptech first popped up on the scene in 1994 they were a very small company but incredibly well funded. They put up huge hospitality booths at industry trade shows and at the time they had only one client – RJ Reynolds. They started to get very prestigious clients that other, more experienced and reputable American software firms were going after.
    So who’s playing who here? That was the question Cynthia McKinney had for Indira at the 9/11 Citizens Commission hearings. Are we really to believe every major government and military agency in America has been duped into opening their informational barn doors to Saudi terrorists?
    “It had all the markings,” said Indira. All the markings of a CIA front company.
    “I think there is a CIA within the CIA,” Indira told FTW. “I think there is a Shadow CIA that does the Iran-Contra type of things–they get funding from illicit methods–and that the Saudi’s are in on it. They might have trained some operatives, and later it backfired-it was blowback within blowback perhaps.”
    “What I do know, what the money trails do show, is that the Saudi’s are complicit. In other words, the ones that are extremely fundamentalist, the ones that promote Wahabiism-I’m not saying it’s all of them–but parts of them are working hand-in-hand, lock step with elements within intelligence, whether it’s official or unofficial. There’s proof of that.”
    Ptech is the information architecture extension of that hand-in-hand relationship.
    The CEO of Ptech is Oussama Ziade. Al Qadi visited Ptech in 1994 and provided $5 million to start up the company, a quarter of the $20 million Ptech raised from about 50 “angel” investors, according to CNN. Al Qadi was introduced to Ziade through BMI, Inc. of New Jersey, a critical component of this nexus that will be discussed later in this report.
    “What we tried to do is keep (Al Qadi) interested, because he’s connected to a lot of VCs (venture capitalists) in Saudi Arabia,” Ziade said. “He’s known as an international businessman that has connections.” CNN says according to “all accounts,” Al Qadi showed little interest in the company and never invested in Ptech again.
    But according to Indira, Al Qadi funded Ptech well into 1999, and beyond that funded the 2001 Horizons Software venture, the Arabic version of the Ptech software. Hussein Ibrahim spent most of 2001 setting up Horizons in Cairo, Egypt.
    Additionally, Al Qadi’s lawyer said he had “sold his stake” in Ptech by 1999, but if this is true, how can CNN say he “showed little interest” and “never invested in Ptech” after 1994? While CNN may technically not be lying, their reporting is askew.
    Beyond this, Al Qadi is linked to the Saudi royal family.
    Al Qadi’s wife is part of the Jamjoom family, and her father,Qadi’s father-in-law,is a former high-ranking Saudi finance minister. This is the same Royal family with whom the Bush family and Dick Cheney are certainly no strangers. This comes from a Department of Treasury report produced on July 14, 2003. Indira was able to get her hands on a copy of the report, which this reporter reviewed on January 21, 2005.
    The BMI Octopus
    At the same time Indira had stumbled onto Yasin Al Qadi, Robert Wright was on the stairs of the Capitol in tears apologizing to the 9/11 victim’s’ family members for a fouled up investigation into Yasin Al Qadi, and much more. Indira didn’t know of Agent Wright until seeing him on television.
    “When Agent Wright said he was investigating a company with 26 subsidiaries, it was BMI, and Ptech was their crown jewel.” Though Ptech wasn’t a direct subsidiary of the New Jersey Islamic banking firm BMI, Dr. Hussein Ibrahim, Ptech’s chief scientist who inexplicably asked Indira to develop JP Morgan’s software on his laptop, was vice president of BMI from 1989 to 1995. BMI had also leased computer equipment to Ptech, and as mentioned earlier, it was BMI that introduced Ptech to Yasin Al Qadi.
    Al Qadi was an investor in BMI. The FBI says other BMI investors include Mousa Abu Marzouk, who operates openly as a top Hamas leader based in Damascus, Syria, and is designated by the Treasury as a terrorism sponsor. In 1999, a BMI employee told the FBI that the company might have financed the bombings of U.S. embassy in East Africa in 1998, according to a sworn FBI statement.
    Agent Wright had been investigating the president of BMI, Inc., an Egyptian citizen named Soliman Bihieri, who was later convicted of lying about his ties to terrorist leaders. Wright was working with Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, an FBI Agent born in Egypt. The code name of the operation was “Vulgar Betrayal.”
    Agent Abdel-Hafiz, by what may be more than just coincidence, was a friend of one of BMI’s accountants. Because of this, he was asked by Agent Wright to have a meeting with Bihieri and wear a wire, but Hafiz refused.
    “It’s hard to emphasize how odd it was for an FBI agent to refuse to cooperate with an investigation when he had been approached by a grand jury subject,” said Mark Flessner, the former prosecutor involved in the Vulgar Betrayal investigation. “It was surreal. I’ve never heard it happening in the history of the FBI.”
    When this hit the news, FBI Agent Carmody from Tampa, Florida alleged Abdel-Hafiz had also refused to record a phone conversation with Sami Al-Arian in 1998, a claim Hafiz denies.
    Agent Abdel-Hafiz claims he feared for his life and felt the FBI could not protect him if he wore a wire on Soliman Bihieri. He referenced threats made to him when he first started working for the FBI as a translator in 1995, saying he felt the FBI didn’t take adequate steps to ensure the safety of his ex-wife. But that was before Hafiz became a full-fledged FBI agent in 1996.
    Astonishingly, after this occurred Agent Abdel-Hafiz was promoted to one of the FBI’s most important anti-terrorism posts, the American Embassy in Saudi Arabia. The day he arrived, the USS Cole was bombed in Yemen. He quickly became involved in that investigation, and was later promoted to Assistant Legal Attach? in Riyadh with a GS 14 ranking-the second highest level an agent can obtain. He was at that post on September 11, 2001.
    Sound Fishy?
    We can add FBI Agent Gamal Abdel-Hafiz to our list of those inexplicably promoted for so called “failures” around terrorism investigations and 9/11. This list includes General Richard B. Myers, General Ralph “Ed” Eberhart, and FBI Special Agent Dave Frasca.
    Ultimately, the Vulgar Betrayal investigation was discontinued. Agent Wright spoke out about how his investigation was blocked and thwarted, writing a manuscript titled, “Vulgar Betrayal.” Attorney Larry Klayman of the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch has said the “Vulgar Betrayal” manuscript hits Bush and Cheney “hard,” and former Attorney General John Ashcroft is not spared, either. This leaves little doubt as to the origins of the obstruction of Wright’s investigation. Wright was eventually barred from speaking to the media.
    But it gets murkier.
    According to Indira Singh, Governor Kean, who headed the 9/11 Commission, sold a piece of property in New Jersey through BMI, Inc. This was revealed in the same Treasury Department report referenced earlier, from July 14, 2003. Regardless of whether Kean knew the extent of BMI’s ties to funding terrorism, this is a direct and unacceptable conflict of interest. Imagine how embarrassed Governor Kean would have been if his own Commission revealed he had sold land through a terror-linked organization. He should have immediately recused himself from the Commission or publicly promised to get to the bottom of what BMI really was. It’s not surprising that neither BMI nor Ptech are mentioned in the final 9/11 Commission report.

    About…

    This Site

    Michael Corbin [1955-2008] was a Denver Radio Talk Show Host who ran a show called 4ACLOSER LOOK (4acloserlook.com).
    Mike and I were in the middle of a number of projects – covering current stories linked to my own ongoing 9/11 investigations – when he passed away, suddenly, on March 16, 2008.
    This site will present some key aspects of those updates planned for 2008. The post on the Home Page pretty much covers all the angles of those updates.
    Mike involved me when he smelled a connection to 9/11 and he was never wrong. Mostly however, I passed along my findings to him.
    Around Thanksgiving 2007, Mike began confiding some troubling items of a personal nature to me. I tend to consider this “blowing off steam” and didn’t pay attention. Perhaps I should have.
    Circumstances of his death

    One of his guests had remarked that when new material had been discovered and Mike did a show on the new material, that was always a time Mike faced new security challenges.
    I was not that particular guest, but whenever I got on air, I would be subject to the same, and so would Mike.
    Needless to say, before we got on air, we did a “security check” to ensure we felt “covered”. In January 2008, Mike was not covered, and he knew it and told me about it, and felt he was under attack. Less than 8 weeks later he was dead.
    None of us who really knew what he was working on, are yet convinced all questions have been answered concerning his demise. The controversy is covered at rememberingmichael.blogspot.com.
    On March 17, 2008, I had few choices regarding memorial websitearrangements at the time – the days immediately following his death were more importantly spent on chasing down the facts surrounding his sudden and strange demise before any cover stories, if applicable, could gel.
    My work with Mike at 4ACLOSERLOOK

    Mike and I had worked in three ways:

    1. investigative journalism
    2. the larger (global) political and economic contexts, drawing irrefutable links to the scientific elite and their methods of social engineering used by the corporate, military, medical, intelligence and entertainment establishments
    3. local activism, exposing and challenging the aspects of this rearing its head in Colorado.

    The bulk of my investigative work with him never made it on air, on purpose, reserved as it is for 9/11 litigation.
    Some of the last cases we worked on will be referred to here, so that his supporters and listeners may have some idea of what actually went on behind the scenes regarding the content of Mike’s life’s work, especially the material he was working on with his guests, when he suddenly died.
    The post on the HOME PAGE touches on many of the angles. Mike knew, as almost few others do, how to tread the fine line between putting a story out, and holding back litigation quality evidence to preserve it for a courtroom.

    The latest nail in the coffin for 9/11 justice

    606
    2008June 5, 2008REFERENCE: MICHAEL CORBIN, Denver Radio talk Show host [1955-2008]
    Today, Mike’s 4 A Closer Look would have covered this topic – and we would have invited these to participate:


    I can imagine Mike coming up with a title for the show, perhaps an intro set to the tune “Thank GOD I’m a country boy” and it might have been: “Thank GOD for the Constitution – we can always count on it to set elite criminals and their terrorist mobsters free.”
    The gist of the radio show with the late Michael Corbin would have been this:
    These guys set free yesterday are connected with PTECH – they were jailed in JANUARY 2008 for indictments stemming from terrorism financing (9/11) charges. The first thing they did was praise the US Constitution for setting them free.
    It is my contention, and also Mike’s, that the Constitution would have seen them hung for treason; it was a Purchased Court, Judge, and Corrupt Lawyers that set them free.
    JUDGE SAYLOR in Massachusetts decided that none of the exhaustive and compelling evidence linking these men to 9/11, or Osama Bin Laden or any other Specially Designated Global Terrorist Entity could be admitted in his court. Therefore these alleged 9/11 terrorists were set free.
    The first time something like this happened, in 2003, Judge Leonie Brinkema in Virginia, had just given their other compadre of the complex terror financing network, Enaam Arnaout (Head of Benevolence International Foundation), a slap on the wrist, a very light sentence.
    Judge Brinkema also refused to connect the Arnaout case to 9/11, although the evidence was overwhelming. Once again, no 9/11 related evidence was allowed in her courtroom. And there were reams of it, indisputable, indictable evidence, going back at least a decade.
    In 2004, using similar twisted legal and political machinations directly from the White House, the 9/11 Commission (headed by Governor Kean, also a business compadre with the same network of people let go yesterday) was permitted to exclude terrorism financing evidence – until their hotly contested final report was amended in August 2004 with a weak essay that wasn’t worthy of grade school.
    When I questioned the FBI in 2003 about that miscarriage of 9/11 justice, Eanaam Arnout’s Benevolence International Foundation, the response was that until people woke up and saw what was going on, it would be all over for America.
    I disagreed and exhorted them to be more aggressive about prosecuting, to fight through the corruption in their own organizations which made that task disheartening and almost impossible. After all, 3,000 people were murdered and it didn’t just happen because of a few disgruntled Islamo-fascist terrorists, each case they won would lead to the next, all the way up the ladder. There is no Statute of Limitation on murder, they had time on their side, I said.
    With this latest nail in the coffin for 9/11 justice, I see how right they were. But that is not why I am writing this … I’m writing because of another kind of fraud that speaks of a bigger miscarriage of justice in this country – the fraud of the alternative press.

    The last time we had a miscarriage of 9/11 justice was in December 2007, when the HOLYLAND FOUNDATION of RICHARDSON TEXAS trial was dismissed.
    This group in BOSTON is linked with the HOLYLAND FOUNDATION in RICHARDSON TEXAS. This was revealed on air with MIKE. PRIOR TO THE SHOW I REVEALED THE EVIDENCE AND TOLD HIM TO KEEP A COPY, BECAUSE THAT EVIDENCE WAS “golden”.
    Somewhere, the pay-meisters behind the shadowy, strange 9/11 truth out disinformation movement must be gloating. Mike is suddenly dead and all his files gone.
    This miscarriage of 9/11 justice is a classic case of how and why people get the government and the country they deserve, and not for lack of trying to be aware citizens, and not for lack of a free press.
    From what I’ve experienced in most of the alternative press these past 5 years – that amorphous body that claims independence to cover “the truth and nothing but the truth” on all matters from 9/11, Iraq to the tooth fairy – is for the most part easily “manipulated” by the same forces that handle the Mainstream Press.
    In fact, most are even more compromised than the oft-maligned corporate funded Mainstream Press. In the cases where I’ve experienced this, it’s all about greed and power, and occasionally, pure insanity.

    So many of those “fighting-the-good fight to be free press” will drop their ethics for that quickie-but-dirty dime. Those that never did, e.g., Michael Corbin, the Denver radio show host are always aware they may end up “suddenly dead” at a relatively young age. (ref:http://rememberingmichael.blogspot.com)
    One would think the alternative media would not be the ones to malevolently characterize well-researched, and curiously, still current links to their White House buddies on both sides of the political aisle, not to mention their Chicago political mob pay-meisters, where so much of this disinformation was coordinated for so long.
    Yet none other than the very alternative press, many of whom stole from Michael Corbin, characterized such links as ‘paranoia’. Cui bene?
    Perhaps the people who really lost on 9/11, family members and friends, would be interested in the 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden evidence against this street-level, low-layer of the 9/11 terrorist plot that got set free yesterday?

    But they – and I mean the Four Jersey Girls (now three?), that bastion of courage and 9/11 morality – somehow managed to “look the other way” on exactly this evidence.
    Predictably, they got nowhere, and are back at the litigation table, looking for terrorism financing pay dirt. Where? Once again, as of April 2008, nothere.

    This is what the citizens and all the 9/11 families get for not paying attention – for not “following the money”..for not understanding that all the evidence they ever needed – all this time – was right in the NY and Boston and Chicago law enforcement files.
    But no, “let’s start yet another investigation” (where now, Mars perhaps?) – useless, unending and unyielding churn.
    The 9/11 evidence always was, is and will be right here, right here at home. Already on file. And this overturned 9/11 terrorism financing case proves it.
    We must be realistic, there are many reasons those flogging for latter-day 9/11 limelight don’t “follow the money”. You can’t get most people to follow two dimes rolling on a sidewalk, they’re more interested in televised pictures of big explosions, and what all those images prove, or not, instead of focusing on the real, litigation quality evidence at hand right under their noses in Boston and New York and Chicago and Richardson, Texas – all linked – already exposing “the King’s key players” behind 9/11.
    EATING YOUR CAKE AND HAVING IT TOO:

    And, this is precisely why Ms. Bonnie Faulkner, would have been invited to have her say, if Mike were alive and this played out on air: KPFA, the flagship of American Public (free?) Radio, decided to take hours of 9/11 terrorism financing evidence – and instead of a compelling case for terrorism financing involving the American political elite, their MENA, Asean, and European power-mongers – KPFA decided to focus on just my paltry experience as a miserable volunteer EMT at Ground Zero, where I knew something about Building 7 being pulled.
    Someone might remember all this has something to do with FISA, a four letter word beginning with F far more vulgar than the other one associated with George Carlin. I have my 7 unmentionable words that will get you under surveillance, and one of them is outing the truth behind FISA that protects the 9/11 terror financiers, both 2004 Kerry, his latter day equivalent (oh wake up, get over it), Bush and their band of merry thugs all the way back to BCCI – even further.
    No one in this country has been treated to a proper rendition of the bogus FISA flag applied to terrorism financing litigation in this country, what the controversy is really all about, WHO IT WAS DESIGNED TO ULTIMATELY PROTECT… and why no litigation for 9/11 will ever hit and stick in a courtroom in these United States.
    … we see the people kept stupidly mesmerized on the one hand with fears of rights taken away. So cleverly exploiting all those fears is nothing less than a bogus application of the FISA argument, which DOESN’T APPLY at all. In the mean time, rights are stripped and it’s got nothing to do with FISA. You lose again.
    The Administration on both sides of the aisle have vested interests in keeping the FISA argument alive, in play, and partisan politics all in a rage over it, as though it has ANYTHING TO DO WITH CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, GIVEN THE EVIDENCE AND PROOF AVAILABLE.
    It’s a bogus argument, and the entire body of ALTERNATIVE PRESS, and MOVIE MAKERS, and DOCUMENTARIANS could NOT hold forth a single intelligent discourse on WHY IT DOES NOT APPLY.
    FEW of the illustrious and dedicated 9/11 Truth Out movements or the Alternative Press outlets who speak of 9/11 to this day, can wrap their brains around the bogus nature of the FISA argument, they settled for the “Demolition Derby” avenue.
    So, KPFA – like most everyone else from the Mainstream and Alternative Press, participated another “smoke and mirror” exercise: “Where’s the beef” – it’s all been carted off – by now, you’re likely buttering your toast and stirring your coffee with material from the 9/11 crime site’s physical evidence.
    Where’s the Beef?

    It’s like this:
    You know someone was murdered, and you have the primary weapon/mechanism of injury, but you think the deed was done with more than one weapon. Additionally, you have “confessions in writing”, a “diversity of written evidence regarding the plot”, from the perps and all their accomplices, not to mention the corroborating testimony of several “eye-witnesses” to these “confessions in writing” and “diversity of written evidence”.
    Here are my questions:

    • Do you let the damn perps free because you don’t have that potential second weapon?
    • Do you say, hmmm, we have seen the buildings come down from the airplanes, and we have all this stellar evidence regarding terrorism financing that implicated everyone, but you know, we really aren’t going to do something about it, until we can figure out if there were bombs in the buildings ahead of time (second weapon).
    • Do you propose we should know what the perp said to someone 10,000 miles away 10 years ago, and until they have that there will be no criminal case.

    Yeah that’s the ticket! Welcome to the 9/11 Truth Out Movement, it moves – IMO like greased “something” that’s for sure – wasting no time ensuring (in the Name of The Victims) every single conceivable angle is covered, have they gotten to the Little Green Men from Mars yet.

    Even the missing 9/11 terrorism financing evidence carted out of the FBI by those paid off by that USA “Mr. Keep A Lid on It” out of Sacramento doesn’t make a difference.


    Here’s the beef:

    The money trails already on file are the “confessions in writing” etc. so get a grip and pay attention where you need to, those of you who have lost, you don’t also have to be losers.


    Furthermore, explain this one to me – or better yet, yourselves: those waiting for magic to appear wrt. their second weapon – bomb – theories, other than wasting 7 precious litigative years, understand full well their bomb theories lead to the same places of elite evil the money trails – already on file – lead. So my question is, who the heck is PAYING YOU for your useless, justice-delaying charades? Hollywood – the backbone of the Military Industrial Intelligence Entertainment complex?


    It proved to be playing a role THEN in 2004, and it certainly proves so NOW in 2008, both election years.
    By way of some explanation, in following the money behind what passes for “Public Radio” these days, Mike Corbin, a civilian from Texas and I found “Public Radio” more in the pockets of the euphemistic “Boys from Texas” than anyone could imagine. This realization, in 2005, made those very few of us with 9/11 justice on our minds (not selling books, personal enlightenment agendas, or milking Internet hits) a minority destined to either “wait for Godot” or go do it ourselves.
    With Ptech and this group of alleged terrorism financiers, a political “smarmy army”, could always be counted on to play the “anti-Muslim witch-hunt” card. Indeed in this case, we have the presence of two females manning that “gas pump”.

    As with any crime, when a political group resorts to that vulgar strawman of a defense, they are betraying our entire country, not to mention justice for the 3,000 people who were murdered.
    In my book, murder is still a crime with no statute of limitations. There will never be justice for them, until the police evidence already gathered is litigated somewhere.
    I always told Michael I would hold one card back. People tend to forget where I had been e.g., the Credit Risk and other Risk areas of the largest banks. It is not understood by many for how long I had been enrolled in writing reports to the Feds on exactly how those irregular activities that escalated with ENRON actually worked. They did leave an indictable trail, and erasing the trail left a bigger mess known as Ground Zero.
    It has been said that those who can connect 9/11 with Enron will bring down the house – assuming of course I, (a human being, not a ghoul), am OK with that- not by poking at Taliban meetings in Texas and DC, or ranting on about Unocal, and Unocal’s strange love for Yaqub Mirza of Ptech, nor even Enron’s servers being used to serve Eastern European porn including kiddie porn, that Daniel Akamai (a 9/11 victim on AA flight 11), was purportedly “investigating” with Lew Perdue (Mr. Mirza’s other business venture) – but with hard evidence.

    The card I withheld connects this sorry mess in Boston to the unholy tangle of financial networks that implicate key politicians in this country at the top, both sides of the aisle. The Government did prevent the political whores comprising the 9/11 Commission from pulling on the string connected to Ptech – but not for long.
    There are other weak points – a very specific one involving Enron – will expose the same group of people, the same names – including this sorry bunch with their newly found love for the US Constitution. And, it includes “Chicago”.
    The alternative press that stole from Mike won’t be able to steal that last hope for 9/11 justice and destroy it.

    Perhaps, it’s time to play that 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden and ENRON evidence where it will be heard, judged and tried: in a Consitutionally sanctioned court of public opinion, since we can’t get it done right in a Court of Purchased Law of the Land.
    DISINFORMATION GHOULS will give this topic a wide berth as they forge ahead with their serial mess-making activities. I can only offer this: what goes around comes around and I know you’re all feeling a little queasy deep down inside where your truth lies, right about now. Ignore it, it’s what you people do best.

    Default Danny Casolero and Michael Corbin - 2 [of many] Victims of the 'Octopus'

    The Right Thing For Michael

    Originally posted at: http://rememberingmichael.wordpress.com

    MAY 2008
    I counted at least a thousand emails between Mike Corbin and myself this past year, though I was over a thousand miles away. He was my security, even though I was over a thousand miles away. We knew that 9/11 was considered “oh so 7 years ago” and people could care less, though every day, another nail was being pounded in the coffin of America in the name of 9/11. We talked about the National Bucket of Mindless Sand into which so many had firmly planted their heads. We talked about whether I should publish my two books that hold ligtigation quality evidence, or hold the line and have it tried in a Court of Law. We talked about howthe entire legal system had been taken over, “covertly compromised”. We had names, dates, events, we had their methodology, their signature.
    The 1-2 punch we discussed in December was this: first, to expose the “same group”that had systematically taken over the Federal Court system (top down), the DOJ, the police departments, the medical examiners offices. We knew of “good guys” in the system who told us things, and had a list of who the bad guys were. We knew who was next. We knew how they did this in Texas, and we were examining closely the situation in Alabama. Those of you who know Mike well understand the Alabama connection TO MICHAEL, and if you don’t, start doing your homework.
    Once that was on the table, I might have had a shot at bringing a 9/11 case to court. My 9/11 file is “a huge thorn” in the side of those that would destroy the value proposition known as America. Mike and I were in the process of getting licenses that would give the evidence we had more clout in a court of law.
    Every single conversation we had was about strategy, tactic and information focused on stopping this national nightmare – we had the right stuff to do just that. I had the evidence, and one person – with immense talents – who couldn’t be bought. Problem was Mike was beset – like so many of us doing this on our own – by personal problems.
    But Mike and I had other conversations, and this is the point of this post. Like Mike I had been threatened, even from within the 9/11 “truth out” movement. E.g., “Indira, you were at GZ I want you to say that you know they pulled building 7.” Well, I do know they pulled it, but I’d ask them. “Why?”, “Well, Indira if you say that, then we can say, ‘See, Indira Singh sez there were bombs in the building beforehand'”. I would always bristle at this sly non-sequitur, and Mike was the only one who’d understand that was pure disinformation at work. Get it? Then, that disinformation group would get nasty, because I didn’t go along.
    We both knew that the “professionals” who intend on a hit, do NOT threaten. If it happened, it would be quiet, cunning and untraceable, and filled with “plausible deniability” and likely involve someone who got CLOSE to the victim.
    So knowing the threats got close to home, Mike and I had this pact:
    (1) If either one of us were found dead of “suicide”, it was to be considered murder, no if’s and’s or but’s.
    (2) If either one of us were found “suddenly dead”, it would require investigation no matter what.
    (3) If we had an illness and then died, we would have a chance to discuss this, to remove from the field any painful and hard questions that would have difficult and expensive answers.
    What I find absolutely reprehensible is that Mike’s death needed to be reported to the Medical Examiner’s office on two counts according to Colorado State Law:
    (1) His was an unattended death.
    (2) His brain death in the hospital occurred within 24 hours, if not sooner.
    In addition, when I was calling the Denver ME’s office, while others were setting up this blog, there was an intersting division of opinion: some said yes, one investigator said that Michael died in the hospital when the plug was pulled. I spoke with a hospital adminsitrator, and when I informed her of Mike’s background, the sort of work he did, and the threats against him, she instantly gave me three numbers of Denver investigators, a good invedstigative news person, and another PI type contact.
    I also asked the ICU to check and run toxicology tests. I asked those close to Mike to do an autopsy, and not just one person.
    You see, no one is saying that Mike did not suffer a massive stroke… but people, people, get a grip, hypertension, smoking – yes we all know, and those of us WITH medical training know for a fact that what Mike was complaining of prior to his death was more symptomatic of something else. No one gets to discuss ad infinitum, and for years, that they are having a stroke. It doesn’t work that way. Believe it or not.
    Therefore my stance is: I HAVE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.
    I have passed this on to the family, ostensibly Mike’s legal heirs, and to Mike’s law enforcement resource who is listed on his website 4acloserlook. [Interestingly, the domain registration was due to expire the day after Mike died. I renewed it, so the PUBLIC would still have access to the files.]
    MOST ALL of those around Michael are the stuff of which America is made, and the people for whom this fight goes on. Truly I have never met such an amazing group elsewhere in my travels. It has been my privilege to know them, and I think that was Micahel’s best legacy. This evil has met its match.
    But, some IMO are not.
    Were an investigation to be conducted, they would start with those who had some odd, close, physical access to Michael. I wish to heck this would start happening NOW, if only to lay these questions to rest, before any trail, if such exists, gets any colder.
    Otherwise, I’ll just chalk this up to another win for the National Bucket of Mindless Sand.

    After a day of research, I can not find any public interviews or written/internet statements by Indira Singh after Micheal Corbin's death...and this worries me. If anyone know of anything she has publicly stated after 2008, kindly let me know. I respect her highly and think what she had to say and her research is second to none.

    1986-October 1999: New Jersey Firm Investors List Is ‘Who’s Who of Designated Terrorists’


    Soliman Biheiri.[Source: US Immigrations and Customs]BMI Inc., a real estate investment firm based in Secaucus, New Jersey, is formed in 1986. Former counterterrorism “tsar” Richard Clarke will state in 2003, “While BMI [has] held itself out publicly as a financial services provider for Muslims in the United States, its investor list suggests the possibility this facade was just a cover to conceal terrorist support. BMI’s investor list reads like a who’s who of designated terrorists and Islamic extremists.” Investors in BMI include:[US CONGRESS, 10/22/2003]
    Soliman Biheiri. He is the head of BMI for the duration of the company’s existence. US prosecutors will later call him the US banker for the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Egyptian militant group. Biheiri’s computer will eventually be searched and found to have contact information for Ghaleb Himmat and Youssef Nada, leaders of the Al Taqwa Bank, which is founded two years after BMI (see1988). After 9/11, the US and UN will designate both Himmat and Nada and the Al Taqwa Bank as terrorist financiers, and the bank will be shut down (see November 7, 2001). US prosecutors say there are other ties between BMI and Al Taqwa, including financial transactions. Biheiri also has close ties with Yousuf Abdullah Al-Qaradawi. Qaradawi is said to be a high-ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a shareholder in Al Taqwa, and has made statements supporting suicide bombings against Israel. In 2003, US investigators will accuse Biheiri of ties to terrorist financing. He will be convicted of immigration violations and lying to a federal agent (see June 15, 2003). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003; FORWARD, 10/17/2003] Biheiri will be convicted of immigration fraud in 2003 and then convicted of lying to federal investigators in 2004 (see June 15, 2003).
    Abdullah Awad bin Laden, a nephew of Osama bin Laden. He invests about a half-million dollars in BMI real estate ventures, earning a profit of $70,000. For most of the 1990s he runs the US branch of a Saudi charity called World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY). He is investigated by the FBI in 1996 (seeFebruary-September 11, 1996), and WAMY will be raided by US agents in 2004 (see June 1, 2004). The raid is apparently part of a larger investigation into terrorism financing. In 2001, at least two of the 9/11 hijackers will live three blocks away from the WAMY office (see March 2001 and After). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003; WASHINGTON POST, 4/19/2004]
    Nur and Iman bin Laden, two female relatives of Osama bin Laden. Abdullah Awad bin Laden will invest some of their money in a BMI real estate project. While their bin Laden family ties are intriguing, neither have been accused of any knowing connections to terrorist financing. [WASHINGTON POST, 4/19/2004]
    Mousa Abu Marzouk. He has identified himself as a top leader of Hamas. The US declares him a terrorist in 1995 (see July 5, 1995-May 1997). BMI makes at least two transactions with Marzouk after he is declared a terrorist. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003]
    Yassin al-Qadi, a Saudi multimillionaire. His lawyers will later claim he has no terrorism ties and had only a passing involvement with BMI and liquidated his investment in it in 1996. However, another company operating from the same office as BMI is called Kadi International Inc. and lists its president as al-Qadi. Al-Qadi is also a major investor in the suspect computer company Ptech (see 1994; 1999-After October 12, 2001). Al-Qadi and BMI head Biheiri have financial dealings with Yaqub Mirza, a Pakistani who manages a group of Islamic charities in Virginia known as the SAAR network (see July 29, 1983). These charities will be raided in March 2002 on suspicions of terrorism ties (see March 20, 2002). Shortly after 9/11, the US will officially declare al-Qadi a terrorist financier (seeOctober 12, 2001). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003]
    Saleh Kamel. BMI allegedly receives a $500,000 investment from the Dallah Al-Baraka banking conglomerate, which is headed by Kamel. For many years before 9/11, Omar al-Bayoumi, an associate of 9/11 hijackers Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi, will receive a salary from Dallah, despite apparently doing no work. Some will accuse al-Bayoumi of involvement in funding the 9/11 plot, but that remains to been proven (see August 1994-July 2001). Kamel reportedly founded a Sudanese Islamic bank which housed accounts for senior al-Qaeda operatives. He is a multi-billionaire heavily involved in promoting Islam, and his name appears on the Golden Chain, a list of early al-Qaeda supporters (see 1988-1989). He denies supporting terrorism. [US CONGRESS, 10/22/2003; WALL STREET JOURNAL, 6/21/2004]
    The Kuwait Finance House. According to Clarke, this organization is alleged to be a BMI investor and the “financial arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait. Several al-Qaeda operatives have allegedly been associated with the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood, including Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, Suliman abu Ghaith, Wadih El-Hage, and Ramzi Yousef.” In 2003, an apparent successor entity to the Kuwait Finance House will be designated as a terrorist entity by the US. A lawyer for the Kuwait Finance House will later say the bank has never let its accounts be used for terrorism. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003; US CONGRESS, 10/22/2003; WALL STREET JOURNAL, 4/20/2005]
    Tarek Swaidan. He is a Kuwaiti, an associate of al-Qadi, and a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. It is unknown if he has made any denials about his alleged associations. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003]
    Abdurahman Alamoudi. For many years he runs the American Muslim Council, a lobby group founded by a top Muslim Brotherhood figure. US prosecutors say he also is in the Brotherhood, and has alleged ties to Hamas. In 2004, the US will sentence him to 23 years in prison for illegal dealings with Libya (see October 15, 2004). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 6/21/2004; WASHINGTON POST, 10/16/2004]
    The International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the Muslim World League, closely connected Saudi charities suspected of financing terrorism. They give BMI $3.7 million out of a $10 million endowment from unknown Saudi donors. The Financial Times will later note, “While it is not clear whether that money came from the Saudi government, [a 2003] affidavit quotes a CIA report that says the Muslim World League ‘is largely financed by the government of Saudi Arabia.’” Both organizations consistently deny any support of terrorism financing, but in early 2006 it will be reported that US officials continue to suspect them of such support (see January 15, 2006). [FINANCIAL TIMES, 8/21/2003] In 1992, a branch of the IIRO gives $2.1 million to BMI Inc. to invest in real estate. The money disappears from BMI’s books. In October 1999, BMI goes defunct after it is unable to repay this money to the IIRO branch. The IIRO branch gives BMI the rest of the $3.7 million between 1992 and 1998. BMI will use the money to buy real estate (see 1992). Eventually, some of this money will be given to Hamas operatives in the West Bank and spent on violent actions against Israel. This will eventually lead to legal action in the US and a seizure of some of the money. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11/26/2002; WASHINGTON POST, 8/20/2003; WASHINGTON TIMES, 3/26/2004; WASHINGTON POST, 4/19/2004] By 1992, BMI has projected revenues in excess of $25 million, based largely on their real estate investments in the US. [US CONGRESS, 10/22/2003] In early 1999, months before BMI goes defunct, the FBI hears evidence potentially tying BMI to the 1998 US embassy bombings (see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998), but an investigation into this will not be pursued (see Early 1999). It should be noted that BMI had many investors, and presumably most BMI investors would have had no suspicions that their money might be used to fund terrorism or other types of violence.

    Mid-1990s: Al-Qadi Claims Good Relationship with Cheney


    Saudi multimillionaire Yassin al-Qadi will say in an interview shortly after 9/11, “I have also met with US Vice President and former Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney in Jeddah [Saudi Arabia] when he came for a lecture organized by the Dallah Group. I spoke to him for a long time and we still have cordial relations.” The US had named al-Qadi a supporter of terrorism and frozen his assets two days before (see October 12, 2001). Oussama Ziade, CEO of Ptech, a US computer company that al-Qadi had invested in (see 1994) and that will be raided for suspected terrorism ties (see December 5, 2002), later will claim that al-Qadi “talked very highly of his relationship” with Cheney. Ziade will claim he only knew al-Qadi for a few years starting around 1994, so presumably the contact between al-Qadi and Cheney happens during the mid-1990s. A newspaper will report later that when a Cheney spokeswoman is asked about his possible ties to al-Qadi, she replies that “she had no reason to believe the vice president had met with al-Qadi”. Al-Qadi claims to be a respected businessman who met other important leaders such as ex-President Jimmy Carter. [ARAB NEWS, 10/14/2001; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003; COMPUTERWORLD, 1/17/2003] The US will declare al-Qadi a terrorism financier shortly after 9/11 (seeOctober 12, 2001), and the Dallah Group will be accused of funding al-Qaeda (see November 22, 2002).

    1992: Militant Financial Front Said to Fund Terrorism Through Real Estate Investments in US


    The Barnaby Knolls housing development, another Washington, DC, suburb funded by BMI Inc.[Source: Susan Biddle/ Washington Post]BMI Inc., is a New Jersey-based Muslim investment firm. Some of the lead investors have been suspected of supporting terrorism and other types of violence in the Middle East (see1986-October 1999). In 1992, a branch of the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), a Saudi charity gives $2.1 million to BMI to invest in real estate. The money disappears from BMI’s books. By 1996, the CIA will secretly report that the IIRO supports terrorism financing in many locations around the world (see January 1996). In October 1999, BMI will go defunct after it is unable to repay this money to the IIRO branch. Additionally, the IIRO branch will give BMI over a million dollars between 1992 and 1998. BMI uses some money from the IIRO and other investors to build houses in Oxon Hill, a Washington, D.C., suburb. Many well to do Muslims invest in the housing development because BMI advertises itself as investing according to Islamic principles. Most of the small investors as well as the middle class Americans who buy the Oxon Hill houses do not realize that the profits from the property sales go to Mousa Abu Marzouk, a known leader of Hamas. Marzouk is said to make $250,000 in profits from BMI real estate deals in the early 1990s. In 2004, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement court declaration will assert that significant amounts of cash obtained from BMI by Marzouk is eventually used “in furtherance of Hamas terrorist operations.” [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11/26/2002;WASHINGTON POST, 8/20/2003; WASHINGTON TIMES, 3/26/2004; WASHINGTON POST, 4/19/2004]By the end of 1992, BMI will have projected revenues in excess of $25 million based largely on their real estate investments in the US.

    1994: Ptech Founded with Support from Suspected Terrorism Financiers


    Oussama Ziade.[Source: Beta Consulting]Ptech is founded in 1994 by Oussama Ziade, Hussein Ibrahim, and James Cerrato. Ziade came from Lebanon to study at Harvard University. As the Associated Press will describe it, Ptech’s “idea was to help complicated organizations like the military and large companies create a picture of how their assets—people and technology—work together. Then the software could show how little changes, like combining two departments, might affect the whole.” They raise $20 million to start the company. A number of Ptech employees and investors will later be suspected of having ties to groups that have been designated by the US as terrorist organizations: [CNN, 12/6/2002; WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003]
    Yassin al-Qadi, a Saudi multimillionaire. He will invest $5 million of Ptech’s start-up money. The US will declare him an al-Qaeda financier shortly after 9/11 (see October 12, 2001). In 1998, al-Qadi will come under investigation by FBI agent Robert Wright (see October 1998) for potential ties to the 1998 US embassy bombings (see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998). Al-Qadi is also a major investor in BMI Inc., an investment firm with connections to a remarkable number of suspected terrorist financiers (see 1986-October 1999). Al-Qadi later will claims that he sold his investment in Ptech in 1999, but there will be evidence he may continue to hold a financial stake after that year, and even after the US will officially declare him a terrorism financier (see 1999-After October 12, 2001). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; WASHINGTON POST, 12/7/2002; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003]
    Gamel Ahmed, Ptech’s comptroller in the mid-1990s. One al-Qadi loan Wright will investigate also involves Ahmed. [ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003]
    Hussein Ibrahim, Ptech vice president and chief scientist. He also serves as vice president and then president of BMI from 1989 until 1995. He has no known direct terrorism finance connections, but it has been reported that al-Qadi brought Ibrahim into Ptech as his representative. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003]
    Soliman Biheiri. He is the head of BMI and a member of Ptech’s board. US prosecutors will later call him the US banker for the Muslim Brotherhood, a banned Egyptian militant group. He will later be convicted for lying and immigration fraud (see June 15, 2003). [FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE, 6/17/2005]
    Abdurahman Alamoudi. He is one of Ptech’s founders, as well as an investor in BMI. In 2004, the US will sentence him to 23 years in prison for illegal dealings with Libya (see October 15, 2004). [WASHINGTON POST, 10/16/2004; FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE, 6/17/2005]
    Muhammed Mubayyid and Suheil Laheir. Neither have any known direct ties to terrorism financing. However, both are longtime Ptech employees whom formerly worked for Care International, a Boston-based suspect Islamic charity (not to be confused with a large international charity having the same name). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002] In 2005, Mubayyid will be charged with conspiring to defraud the US and making false statements to the FBI. Care International had previously been the Boston branch of the Al-Kifah Refugee Center (see [a0493kifahboston]]) and a recruitment office for Mektab al Khidmat (MAK), the precursor organization to al-Qaeda (see1985-1989). Laheir, Ptech’s chief architect, wrote many articles in support of Islamic holy war. He frequently quoted Abdullah Azzam, bin Laden’s mentor. [ASSOCIATED PRESS, 5/13/2005; FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE, 6/17/2005]
    Yaqub Mirza. He is a Ptech investor and on a Ptech advisory board. He directs SAAR, a multi-million dollar network of companies and charities in Herndon, Virginia (see July 29, 1983). In March 2002, US investigators will raid the SAAR network for suspected terrorism ties (see March 20, 2002). In late 2002, the Wall Street Journal will report, “US officials privately say Mr. Mirza and his associates also have connections to al-Qaeda and to other entities officially listed by the US as sponsors of terrorism.” [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003]
    BMI itself directly invests in Ptech. It also gives Ptech a founding loan, and leases Ptech much of its office and computer equipment. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003] Ptech president Ziade and other Ptech employees will claim that all of their ties to suspected terrorist financiers are coincidental. By 2002, Ptech will have annual revenues of up to $10 million. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002] Ptech’s potential ties to suspected terrorist financiers will be of particular concern because of its potential access to classified government information (see 1996-1997).[WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; BOSTON GLOBE, 12/7/2002] Joe Bergantino, a CBS journalist who will be the first to report on Ptech, will say of Ptech in 2002, “The worst-case scenario is that this is a situation where this was planned for a very long time to establish a company in this country and in the computer software business that would target federal agencies and gain access to key government data to essentially help terrorists launch another attack.” [NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO, 12/8/2002]

    Shortly After March 1994: US Learns Bin Laden Gave Prominent Muslim Activist Money for ‘Blind Sheikh’


    Alamoudi, center, with Vice President Gore, left, and President Clinton, right. This picture is from a 1997 American Muslim Council newsletter and was presumably taken around that time. [Source: CAIR]Abdo Mohammed Haggag, speechwriter for the “Blind Sheikh,” Sheikh Omar Abdul-Rahman, makes a deal and agrees to testify against Abdul-Rahman in an upcoming US trial. [NEW YORK TIMES, 6/26/1994] He soon reveals that bin Laden has been paying for Abdul-Rahman’s living expenses since Abdul-Rahman moved to the US in 1990 (see July 1990). This is one of the first things that causes US intelligence to become interested in bin Laden. [MILLER, STONE, AND MITCHELL, 2002, PP. 147-148] Further, Haggag reveals that the money was funneled through Abdurahman Alamoudi and his organization, the American Muslim Council. “Investigators tried to prove Alamoudi was a terror middleman but could not find ‘smoking gun’ evidence. That allowed Alamoudi to became a politically connected Muslim activist and co-founder of the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Council, which helps the US military select Muslim chaplains.” [NEW YORK POST, 10/1/2003]This same year, Alamoudi will be one of the founders of Ptech, a US computer company with suspected terrorism ties (see1994). It will later be alleged that he was able to operate with impunity for years due to his close ties to Grover Norquist, a powerful Republican lobbyist (see March 20, 2002). In 2004, the US will sentence him to 23 years in prison for illegal dealings with Libya (see October 15, 2004).

    1995-1998: Alleged Ties Between Al-Qadi Charity and Terrorist Groups Are Uncovered; No Action Taken


    Beginning in 1995, evidence begins to appear in the media suggesting that a Saudi charity named the Muwafaq Foundation has ties to radical militants. The foundation is run by a Saudi multimillionaire named Yassin al-Qadi.
    In 1995, media reports claim that Muwafaq is being used to fund mujaheddin fighters in Bosnia (see 1991-1995).
    Also in 1995, Pakistani police raid the foundation’s Pakistan branch in the wake of the arrest of WTC bomber Ramzi Yousef (see February 7, 1995). The head of the branch is held for several months, and then the branch is closed down. [CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/29/2001]
    A secret CIA report in January 1996 says that Muwafaq is has ties to the Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya militant group and helps fund mujaheddin fighting in Bosnia and at least one training camp in Afghanistan (see January 1996).
    In February 1996, bin Laden says in an interview that he supports the Muwafaq branch in Zagreb, Croatia (which is close to the fighting in neighboring Bosnia). [GUARDIAN, 10/16/2001]
    A senior US official will later claim that in 1998, the National Commercial Bank, one of the largest banks in Saudi Arabia, ran an audit and determined that the Muwafaq Foundation gave $3 million to al-Qaeda. Both al-Qadi and the bank later claim that the audit never existed. Al-Qadi asserts he has no ties to any terrorist group. [CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/29/2001] In 2003, former counterterrorism “tsar” Richard Clarke will elaborate on this allegation, saying to a Senate committee, “Al-Qadi was the head of Muwafaq, a Saudi ‘relief organization’ that reportedly transferred at least $3 million, on behalf of Khalid bin Mahfouz, to Osama bin Laden and assisted al-Qaeda fighters in Bosnia.” [US CONGRESS, 10/22/2003] (Note that bin Mahfouz, a Saudi billionaire, denies that he ever had any sort of tie to bin Laden or al-Qaeda and has not been officially charged of such ties anywhere.) [BIN MAHFOUZ INFO, 11/22/2005]
    Al-Qadi will claim that he shut down Muwafaq in 1996, but it is referred to in UN and German charity documents as doing work in Sudan and Bosnia through 1998. [GUARDIAN, 10/16/2001; BBC, 10/20/2001]
    Shortly after 9/11, the US Treasury Department will claim that Muwafaq funded Maktab al-Khidamat (MAK)/Al-Kifah (the predecessor of al-Qaeda), al-Qaeda, Hamas, and Abu Sayyaf (a Philippines militant group with ties to al-Qaeda), and other militant Islamic groups. [FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE, 6/17/2005]
    However, despite all of these alleged connections, and the fact that the US will officially label al-Qadi a terrorism financier shortly after 9/11 (see October 12, 2001), the Muwafaq Foundation has never been officially declared a terrorist supporting entity. An October 2001 New York Times article will say that the reason, “administration officials said, was the inability of United States officials to locate the charity or determine whether it is still in operation.” But the same article will also quote a news editor, who calls Muwafaq’s board of directors “the creme de la creme of Saudi society.” [NEW YORK TIMES, 10/13/2001]

    1996-1997: Ptech Begins to Get US Government Contracts


    Ptech logo. [Source: Ptech]Ptech is a Boston computer company connected to a number of individuals suspected of ties to officially designated terrorist organizations (see 1994). These alleged ties will be of particular concern because of Ptech’s potential access to classified government secrets. Ptech specializes in what is called enterprise architecture. It is the design and layout for an organization’s computer networks. John Zachman, considered the father of enterprise architecture, later will say that Ptech could collect crucial information from the organizations and agencies with which it works. “You would know where the access points are, you’d know how to get in, you would know where the weaknesses are, you’d know how to destroy it.” Another computer expert will say, “The software they put on your system could be collecting every key stroke that you type while you are on the computer. It could be establishing a connection to the outside terrorist organization through all of your security measures.” [WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002] In late 1996, an article notes that Ptech is doing work for DARPA, a Defense Department agency responsible for developing new military technology. [GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE, 9/1/1996] In 1997, Ptech gains government approval to market its services to “all legislative, judicial, and executive branches of the federal government.” Beginning that year, Ptech will begin working for many government agencies, eventually including the White House, Congress, Army, Navy, Air Force, NATO, FAA, FBI, US Postal Service, Secret Service, the Naval Air Systems Command, IRS, and the nuclear-weapons program of the Department of Energy. For instance, Ptech will help build “the Military Information Architecture Framework, a software tool used by the Department of Defense to link data networks from various military computer systems and databases.” Ptech will be raided by US investigators in December 2002 (see December 5, 2002), but not shut down. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 12/6/2002; CNN, 12/6/2002; NEWSWEEK, 12/6/2002; BOSTON GLOBE, 12/7/2002] A former director of intelligence at the Department of Energy later will say he would not be surprised if an al-Qaeda front company managed to infiltrate the department’s nuclear programs. [UNLIMITED (AUCKLAND), 12/9/2002]Ptech will continue to work with many of these agencies even after 9/11. After a Customs Department raid of Ptech’s offices in late 2002, their software will be declared safe of malicious code. But one article will note, “What no one knows at this point is how much sensitive government information Ptech gained access to while it worked in several government agencies.” [WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002]

    April 1998: FBI Agent Stifles Investigation into Ptech Figures


    John Vincent.[Source: Patriot TV]FBI agent Robert Wright will later recall that at this time, he is pleasantly surprised when FBI management provides his Vulgar Betrayal investigation with a 10 year veteran agent to assist with his efforts. According to Wright, the unnamed agent is assigned to “investigate a company and its 20-plus subsidiaries which were linked to a major financer of international terrorism.” However, Wright and fellow agent John Vincent will soon become dismayed when they realize the agent is not actually doing any work. He merely shuffles papers to look busy when people walk by. He will continue to do no work on this important assignment until the Vulgar Betrayal investigation is effectively shut down one year later (see August 3, 1999). Wright will claim in 2003, “The important assignment he was given involved both the founder and the financier of Ptech.” Presumably these could be references to Oussama Ziade, the president and chief founder of Ptech, and Yassin al-Qadi, apparently Ptech’s largest investor.[FEDERAL NEWS SERVICE, 6/2/2003]

    October 1998: Vulgar Betrayal Investigation Nearly Shut Down


    Mark Flessner.Two months after the US embassy bombings in Africa (see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998), FBI agent Robert Wright and his Vulgar Betrayal investigation discover evidence they think ties Saudi multimillionaire Yassin al-Qadi to the bombings. Since 1997, Wright had been investigating a suspected terrorist cell in Chicago that was connected to fundraising for Hamas. They discovered what they considered to be clear proof that al-Qadi and other people they were already investigating had helped fund the embassy bombings. Wright asks FBI headquarters for permission to open an investigation into this money trail at this time, but the permission is not granted. Wright will later recall, “The supervisor who was there from headquarters was right straight across from me and started yelling at me: ‘You will not open criminal investigations. I forbid any of you. You will not open criminal investigations against any of these intelligence subjects.’” Instead, they are told to merely follow the suspects and file reports, but make no arrests. Federal prosecutor Mark Flessner, working with the Vulgar Betrayal investigation, later will claim that a strong criminal case was building against al-Qadi and his associates. “There were powers bigger than I was in the Justice Department and within the FBI that simply were not going to let [the building of a criminal case] happen. And it didn’t happen.… I think there were very serious mistakes made. And I think, it perhaps cost, it cost people their lives ultimately.” [ABC NEWS, 12/19/2002] Flessner later will speculate that Saudi influence may have played a role. ABC News will report in 2002, “According to US officials, al-Qadi [has] close personal and business connections with the Saudi royal family.” [ABC NEWS, 11/26/2002] Wright later will allege that FBI headquarters even attempted to shut down the Vulgar Betrayal investigation altogether at this time. He says, “They wanted to kill it.” [ABC NEWS, 12/19/2002] However, he will claim, “Fortunately an assistant special agent in Chicago interceded to prevent FBI headquarters from closing Operation Vulgar Betrayal.” [FEDERAL NEWS SERVICE, 6/2/2003]He claims that a new supervisor will write in late 1998, “Agent Wright has spearheaded this effort despite embarrassing lack of investigative resources available to the case, such as computers, financial analysis software, and a team of financial analysts. Although far from being concluded, the success of this investigation so far has been entirely due to the foresight and perseverance of Agent Wright.” [FEDERAL NEWS SERVICE, 5/30/2002] When the story of this interference in the alleged al-Qadi-embassy bombings connection will be reported in late 2002, Wright will conclude, “September the 11th is a direct result of the incompetence of the FBI’s International Terrorism Unit. No doubt about that. Absolutely no doubt about that. You can’t know the things I know and not go public.” He will remain prohibited from telling all he knows, merely hinting, “There’s so much more. God, there’s so much more. A lot more.” [ABC NEWS, 12/19/2002]

    Early 1999: FBI Fails to Pursue Possible Connection Between BMI and Embassy Bombings


    BMI Inc. is a New Jersey-based investment firm with connections to a remarkable number of suspected terrorist financiers (see1986-October 1999). In 1999, a former BMI accountant contacts the FBI and says that he believes BMI is supporting terrorism. He claims that money he “was transferring overseas on behalf of the company may have been used to finance the embassy bombings in Africa.”(see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998) US investigators establish a financial link between BMI and an Islamic charity named Mercy International. A Nairobi, Kenya, branch of that charity helped support the embassy bombings. FBI agent Robert Wright’s Vulgar Betrayal investigation had recently discovered evidence suggesting a link between Saudi multimillionaire Yassin al-Qadi and the embassy bombings (seeOctober 1998), and al-Qadi is a major investor of BMI. The Vulgar Betrayal investigation begins looking at this new possible link. BMI president Soliman Biheiri hears that FBI agent Gamal Abdel-Hafiz has been told about this, and he asks to meet with Abdel-Hafiz to explain. Apparently, he does not realize that Abdel-Hafiz is an undercover FBI agent. Wright asks Abdel-Hafiz to wear a wire to the meeting, and Abdel-Hafiz refuses to do so (see Early 1999-March 21, 2000). Apparently the meeting with Biheiri never takes place and the possible connections between BMI and the embassy bombings are not fully investigated before 9/11.

    Early 1999-March 21, 2000: Muslim FBI Agent Refuses to Wear Wire in Meeting with BMI Head; FBI Infighting Follows


    Gamal Abdel-Hafiz. [Source: Charles Ommanney]Gamal Abdel-Hafiz, one of only a few Muslim FBI agents in the years just prior to 9/11, becomes involved in FBI agent Robert Wright’s Vulgar Betrayal investigation in early 1999. An accountant working for BMI Inc., an investment firm with connections to many suspected terrorism financiers (see 1986-October 1999), tells Abdel-Hafiz that he is worried that BMI funds had helped fund the 1998 US embassy bombings in Africa (see 10:35-10:39 a.m., August 7, 1998). BMI president Soliman Biheiri hears that Abdel-Hafiz had been told about this, and wants to meet with him to discuss it (apparently without realizing that Abdel-Hafiz is an undercover FBI agent). Wrights asks Abdel-Hafiz to wear a wire to the meeting, but Abdel-Hafiz refuses to do so. This leads to infighting within the FBI. On July 6, 1999, Abdel-Hafiz files a religious discrimination complaint, accusing Wright of making derogatory comments to fellow agents. [FRONTLINE, 10/16/2003] On March 21, 2000, Wright makes a formal internal complaint about Abdel-Hafiz. FBI agent Barry Carmody seconds Wright’s complaint. Wright and Carmody accuse Abdel-Hafiz of hindering investigations by openly refusing to record other Muslims. In an affidavit, Wright claims that Abdel-Hafiz refused to wear the wire “based on religious reasons saying, ‘A Muslim doesn’t record another Muslim.’” Abdel-Hafiz does not deny the quote, but claims it was taken out of context. [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 11/26/2002;ABC NEWS, 12/19/2002; FRONTLINE, 10/16/2003] Federal prosecutor Mark Flessner and other FBI agents back up the allegations against Abdel-Hafiz. [ABC NEWS, 12/19/2002] Carmody will also claim that, in a different investigation, Abdel-Hafiz hindered an inquiry into the possible ties to Islamic militants of fired University of South Florida Professor Sami al-Arian by refusing to record a conversation with the professor in 1998. [TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/4/2003]Complaints to superiors and headquarters about Abdel-Hafiz never get a response. [FOX NEWS, 3/6/2003] “Far from being reprimanded, in February 2001 Abdel-Hafiz [is] promoted to one of the FBI’s most important anti-terrorism posts, the American Embassy in Saudi Arabia, to handle investigations for the FBI in that Muslim country.” [ABC NEWS, 12/19/2002; FRONTLINE, 10/16/2003] In 2003, FBI agent John Vincent will complain, “Five different FBI field divisions complained of this agent’s activities, and the FBI headquarters response was to promote him to a sensitive position in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.” [FEDERAL NEWS SERVICE, 6/2/2003] Abdel-Hafiz will be suspended in February 2003 over charges that he faked a break-in of his own house in order to collect $25,000 in insurance benefits and then failed an FBI polygraph test when asked about it. In January 2004, the FBI’s Disciplinary Review Board will reinstate him after deciding there was insufficient evidence in the case. [TAMPA TRIBUNE, 3/4/2003; FRONTLINE, 10/16/2003]

    1999-After October 12, 2001: Al-Qadi Continues to Fund Ptech


    After a 2002 US government raid on the offices of Ptech, a Boston based computer company (see December 5, 2002), Ptech officials will downplay any connection between Ptech and Yassin al-Qadi, a multimillionaire suspected of financing groups that have been officially designated as terrorist organizations. For instance, Ptech vice president Joseph Johnson will say al-Qadi had no ties to the company but “may have had something to do with it [in 1994].” Al-Qadi was one of Ptech’s biggest initial investors in 1994, if not the biggest investor (see 1994). [ASSOCIATED PRESS, 12/7/2002] However, there is considerable evidence al-Qadi is still involved in Ptech at least through 1999. Company insiders will later tell investigators that they were summoned to Saudi Arabia in 1999 to brief Saudi investors in Ptech. They are introduced to al-Qadi, who is described as an owner of Ptech. A photograph taken at this meeting shows al-Qadi with Ptech CEO Oussama Ziade and others. [WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002] Most media accounts say al-Qadi invested about $5 million in Ptech in 1994, one quarter of the company’s start-up money. But one account claims that al-Qadi invested an additional $9 million indirectly through BMI, the New Jersey-based investment firm with ties to several individuals suspected of financing Islamic militant groups (see 1986-October 1999). Swiss investigators also allege that al-Qadi transfers $2 million to Ptech between 1997 and 2000.[FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE, 6/17/2005] There are even allegations that al-Qadi continues to support Ptech after the US officially designates him a terrorist financier on October 12, 2001. In late 2002, CNN will report, “Sources said Ptech executives are believed to have been aware of al-Qadi’s suspected connections but did not sever their relationship with him.” [CNN, 12/6/2002] Al-Qadi will deny allegations that he had any interest in Ptech after 9/11. But in late 2002 al-Qadi’s lawyer will concede that it is possible an al-Qadi representative continued to sit on Ptech’s board after 9/11. [NEWSWEEK, 12/6/2002]

    October 12, 2001: US Declares Al-Qadi Terrorist Financier


    Yassin al-Qadi. [Source: Arab News]Yassin al-Qadi is included in a new US list of 39 individuals and organizations designated by the US as connected to terrorism (see October 12, 2001). The US officially declares him a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” and his US assets are frozen. [CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/14/2001;CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/29/2001] Al-Qadi says he is “horrified and shocked” by the allegations.[CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/16/2001] There have been several accusations that al-Qadi laundered money to fund Hamas and al-Qaeda. He headed the Muwafaq (Blessed Relief) Foundation, a Saudi-based charity. Treasury officials allege it has funneled millions of dollars to al-Qaeda (see 1995-1998). [CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/16/2001; CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/29/2001] An investigation into his al-Qaeda connections was canceled by higher-ups in the FBI in October 1998 (seeOctober 1998). In late 2002, Saudi Arabia will freeze al-Qadi’s accounts, an action the Saudis have taken against only three people. However, he has yet to be charged or arrested by the Saudis or the US.

    Shortly After October 12, 2001: Software Company Whistleblowers Ignored


    Yassin al-Qadi, a Saudi multimillionaire businessman, was officially declared a terrorist financier in October 2001 (seeOctober 12, 2001). [ARAB NEWS, 9/26/2002] That same month, a number of employees at Ptech, a Boston-based computer company that al-Qadi and other individuals suspected of financing officially designated terrorist groups invested in (see 1994), tell the Boston FBI about the connections between Ptech and al-Qadi. However, FBI agents do little more than take their statements. A high-level government source later will claim the FBI does not convey the Ptech-al-Qadi link to Operation Greenquest, a Customs Department investigation into al-Qadi and other suspected financiers, and none of the government agencies using Ptech software are warned about the possible security threat Ptech represents. [BOSTON GLOBE, 12/7/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002]According to a private counterterrorism expert involved in investigating Ptech at the time, “Frighteningly, when an employee told [Ptech president Oussama Ziade] he felt he had to contact the FBI regarding al-Qadi’s involvement in the company, the president allegedly told him not to worry because Yaqub Mirza, who was on the board of directors of the company and was himself a target of a [Greenquest] terrorist financing raid in March 2002 (see March 20, 2002), had contacts high within the FBI.” [NATIONAL REVIEW, 5/27/2003] A Ptech investigation will finally begin in 2002 after more whistleblowers come forward (see May-December 5, 2002).

    May-December 5, 2002: US Investigators Pressed to Look Into Ptech


    Indira Singh. [Source: Michael Kane]In October 2001, Ptech insiders attempted to warn the FBI that suspected terrorist financier Yassin al-Qadi had funded Ptech (see Shortly After October 12, 2001). Then Indira Singh, an employee at JP Morgan Chase bank, develops her own suspicions about Ptech after her bank assigned her to investigate Ptech for a potential business deal. In May 2002, she speaks with the FBI about her concerns. Weeks later, she learns the FBI still has not told any other government agencies about the potential Ptech security threat. She later will recall, “the language, the kind of language law enforcement, counterterrorism, and the FBI agents themselves were using basically indicated to me that absolutely no investigation was going on, that it was totally at a standstill, at which point my hair stood on end.” She contacts a Boston CBS television station, WBZ-TV, and a reporter for the station named Joe Bergantino begins investigating Ptech. [BOSTON GLOBE, 12/7/2002;NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO, 12/8/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002] Around the same time, a former government official with contacts in the Bush administration tells officials at the National Security Council about the Ptech allegations. By late August, Operation Greenquest then opens its own Ptech investigation. The FBI then tries “to muscle its way back into the probe once it [becomes] clear that [Greenquest is] taking the case seriously.” [NEWSWEEK, 12/6/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002] Beginning in late November, US agents begin calling Ptech officials and asking them if they have ties to money laundering, thus tipping them off. Ptech will also be notified when a December raid will be occurring before it happens. [ASSOCIATED PRESS, 1/3/2003] WBZ-TV prepared a story on Ptech, but withheld it from the public for more than three months after receiving “calls from federal law enforcement agencies, some at the highest levels.” The station claims the government launched its Ptech probe in August 2002, after they “got wind of our investigation” and “asked us to hold the story so they could come out and do their raid and look like they’re ahead of the game.” [BOSTON GLOBE, 12/7/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002]

    Late 2002: FBI Agent Wright Not Allowed to Continue His Financial Investigations


    Robert Wright, the FBI agent in charge of some groundbreaking investigations into charity fronts before 9/11, has been suspended and under investigation since at least early 2001 (seeAugust 2000 and January-March 2001). However, at this time, his suspension is cleared and he is allowed to work as an FBI agent again. But he is specifically prohibited from working on topics he was investigating before, such as BMI and Yassin al-Qadi. He is not even allowed access to his own files from before his suspension. Wright will later be fired and then reinstated, but it does not appear he is ever able to continue his charity front investigations (see April 30, 2005-October 19, 2005). [KATZ, 2003, PP. 186]

    December 5, 2002: Software Company with Access to Government Secrets Raided


    FBI agents raid Ptech offices. [Source: ABC News]Federal agents search the offices of Ptech, Inc., a Boston computer software company, looking for evidence of links to Osama bin Laden. A senior Ptech official confirms that Yassin al-Qadi, one of 12 Saudi businessmen on a secret CIA list suspected of funneling millions of dollars to al-Qaeda, was an investor in the company, beginning in 1994. Ptech appears to have connections to other potential terrorist financiers (see 1994). In particular, there seem to be many ties between Ptech and BMI Inc., a New Jersey-based company whose list of investors has been called a “who’s who of designated terrorists and Islamic extremists” (see 1986-October 1999). [NEWSWEEK, 12/6/2002; WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002] A former FBI counterterrorism official states, “For someone like [al-Qadi] to be involved in a capacity, in an organization, a company that has access to classified information, that has access to government open or classified computer systems, would be of grave concern.” [WBZ 4 (BOSTON), 12/9/2002] On the day after the raid, US authorities will claim that Ptech’s software has been scrutinized and poses no danger. But security expert John Pike comments, “When you look at all of the different military security agencies that they have as customers, it’s very difficult to imagine how they would not be encountering sensitive information, classified information.” [NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO, 12/8/2002]The search into Ptech is part of Operation Greenquest, which has served 114 search warrants in the past 14 months involving suspected terrorist financing. Fifty arrests have been made and $27.4 million seized. [FORBES, 12/6/2002] However, the raid appears to have been largely for show. Ptech was notified by US officials in November that they were being investigated, and they were told in advance exactly when the raid would take place (seeMay-December 5, 2002). Top officials in the US government appear to have made up their minds before the results of the raid can even be examined. White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer comments on the Ptech raid only hours after it ends: “The one thing I can share with you is that the products that were supplied by this company to the government all fell in the nonclassified area. None of it involved any classified products used by the government. The material has been reviewed by the appropriate government agencies, and they have detected absolutely nothing in their reports to the White House that would lead to any concern about any of the products purchased from this company.” [WHITE HOUSE, 12/6/2002] The fact that the raid takes place at all appears to be due to the persistence of Operation Greenquest investigators, who are engaged at this time in a bureaucratic battle with other investigators over who will control US government investigations into terrorist financing (see After March 20, 2002-Early 2003). Greenquest will lose this battle early in 2003 and get shut down (see May 13-June 30, 2003). In his 2003 book Black Ice, author Dan Verton will call Ptech an “innocent” casualty of Operation Greenquest’s “scorched-earth” tactics. [VERTON, 2003, PP. 223] No charges will be brought against Ptech, and the company will continue fulfilling sensitive government contracts under a new name (see May 14, 2004).

    June 15, 2003: BMI Leader Arrested and Imprisoned


    Yaqub Mirza.[Source: Publicity photo, via Byrd Business Review]Soliman Biheiri, the former head of BMI Inc., a New Jersey-based investment firm with ties to many suspected terrorism financiers (see 1986-October 1999), had left the US immediately after a raid of the SAAR network in March 2002 (see March 20, 2002). On this day, he returns to the US and is immediately arrested and interviewed by Customs agent David Kane. Biheiri tells Kane that he has longstanding ties to leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, a radical Muslim group banned in Egypt. Agents are able to search his laptop computer, and discover ties with Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzouk. He is also connected to two principals of the banned Al Taqwa Bank (see November 7, 2001), Youssef Nada and Ghaleb Himmat, when their addresses are discovered on his computer as well. Agents say there are “other indications” of connections between Al Taqwa and Biheiri’s company BMI, including financial transactions. [FORWARD, 10/17/2003; WALL STREET JOURNAL, 6/21/2004; ASSOCIATED PRESS, 10/12/2004] An e-mail is also discovered showing Biheiri was involved in Saudi multimillionaire Yassin al-Qadi’s financial dealings with Yaqub Mirza, the director of the raided SAAR network. The US froze al-Qadi’s assets in late 2001 (see October 12, 2001). [WALL STREET JOURNAL, 9/15/2003] Biheiri will be convicted of immigration fraud in October 2003.

    May 14, 2004: Ptech Continues Business with US Government Under New Name


    A newspaper article reveals that Ptech, the Boston-based computer company with ties to Yassin al-Qadi and other suspected terrorist financiers (see 1994), is still continuing its business under a different name. The article states, “Although no one associated with the company has been charged, the US attorney’s office has never issued a statement exonerating the company or ending the investigation.” Ptech is now called GoAgile. The company lost many customers in the wake of the widely-publicized raid on its offices in 2002 (see December 5, 2002). However, CEO Oussama Ziade states, “We still have government agencies as customers, including the White House.”[PATRIOT LEDGER, 5/14/2004; FRONTPAGE MAGAZINE, 6/17/2005]

    August 21, 2004: 9/11 Commission’s Terrorist Financing Conclusions at Odds with Media Accounts


    The 9/11 Commission releases a report on terrorism financing. Its conclusions generally stand in complete contrast to a great body of material reported by the mainstream media, before and after this report. For instance, while the report does mention some terrorism-supporting organizations in great detail, such as the Global Relief Foundation or Al Barakaat, many seemingly important organizations are not mentioned a single time in either this report or the 9/11 Commission Final Report. The Commission fails to ever mention: BMI, Inc., Ptech, Al Taqwa Bank, Holy Land Foundation, InfoCom, International Islamic Relief Organization, Muslim World League, Muwafaq (Blessed Relief) Foundation, Quranic Literacy Institute, and the SAAR network or any entity within it. Additionally, important efforts to track terrorist financing such as Vulgar Betrayal and Operation Greenquest are not mentioned a single time. [9/11 COMMISSION, 7/24/2004, PP. 61; 9/11 COMMISSION, 8/21/2004, PP. 134-5 ] Some select quotes from the report:
    “While the drug trade was an important source of income for the Taliban before 9/11, it did not serve the same purpose for al-Qaeda. Although there is some fragmentary reporting alleging that bin Laden may have been an investor, or even had an operational role, in drug trafficking before 9/11, this intelligence cannot be substantiated and the sourcing is probably suspect.” Additionally, there is “no evidence of [al-Qaeda] drug funding after 9/11.” [9/11 COMMISSION, 8/21/2004, PP. 22-23 ]
    “[C]ontrary to some public reports, we have not seen substantial evidence that al-Qaeda shares a fund-raising infrastructure in the United States with Hamas, Hezbollah, or Palestinian Islamic Jihad.” [9/11 COMMISSION, 8/21/2004, PP. 24 ]
    “The United States is not, and has not been, a substantial source of al-Qaeda funding, but some funds raised in the United States may have made their way to al-Qaeda and its affiliated groups. A murky US network of jihadist (holy war) supporters has plainly provided funds to foreign mujaheddin with al-Qaeda links. Still, there is little hard evidence of substantial funds from the United States actually going to al-Qaeda. A CIA expert on al-Qaeda financing believes that any money coming out of the United States for al-Qaeda is ‘minuscule.’” [9/11 COMMISSION, 8/21/2004, PP. 24 ]
    The notion “that bin Laden was a financier with a fortune of several hundred million dollars” is an “urban legend.” “[S]ome within the government continued to cite the $300 million figure well after 9/11, and the general public still [incorrectly] gives credence to the notion of a ‘multimillionaire bin Laden.’” [9/11 COMMISSION, 8/21/2004, PP. 20, 34 ] (A few months after this report, it will be reported that in 2000 over $250 million passed through a bank account jointly controlled by bin Laden and another man (see 2000).)
    “To date, the US government has not been able to determine the origin of the money used for the 9/11 attacks.… Ultimately the question of the origin of the funds is of little practical significance.” [9/11 COMMISSION, 8/21/2004, PP. 144 ]
    “The US intelligence community has attacked the problem [of terrorist funding] with imagination and vigor” since 9/11. [NEW YORK TIMES, 8/22/2004]
    According to the New York Times, the report “largely exonerate[s] the Saudi government and its senior officials of long-standing accusations that they were involved in financing al-Qaeda terrorists.” [NEW YORK TIMES, 8/22/2004] Author Douglas Farah comments on the Commission’s report, “The biggest hole is the complete lack of attention to the role the Muslim Brotherhood has played in the financing of al-Qaeda and other radical Islamist groups. While the ties are extensive on a personal level, they also pervade the financial structure of al-Qaeda.… According to sources who provided classified briefing to the Commission staff, most of the information that was provided was ignored.… [T]he Commission staff simply did not include any information that was at odds with the official line of different agencies.” [FARAH, 8/27/2004]

    The 'take home' story about P-Tech [simplifying greatly] is that it was their software which on 911 allowed [or controlled] coordination between the FAA, the Secret Service (and V.P. Chaney), and NORAD. P-Tech was financed by, among others, Bin Laden's banker and someone other parts of the government had labelled as a known financier of terrorists [remember that Sibel Edmonds has stated that she had proof that Bin Laden was working with/for the CIA at least up until the date of 9-11-01]. The nature of P-Tech software architecture was such that it could monitor secretly all conversations and information flow; control it [allow or not allow it - replace 'unwanted' information with 'other' information], and even control operational systems. It seems from the evidence available that P-Tech was a technology 'asset' of the U.S.C.I.A. and was using a more advanced version of PROMIS software, The company also had friends and protectors in the U.S.F.B.I. Not all parts of the complex puzzle have been figured out, and many who have pieces of the puzzle are not allowed to speak what they know. Some have been silenced. Some have been killed. Others have scattered or been scattered to the winds. The list of corporations [ENRON, IBM, Booz-Allen-Hamilton, and many, many others]and government agencies including, but not limited to: the White House, Congress, Army, Navy, Air Force, NATO, FAA, FBI, US Postal Service, Secret Service, the Naval Air Systems Command, IRS, and the nuclear-weapons program of the Department of Energy, the Department of Justice, Customs] that were using P-Tech software to CONTROL their systems is quite amazing, more so when one knows a little about their pedigree and financing (Those systems were designed to monitor in a manner that was invisible to those using them and even to control secretly from OUTSIDE]. Even more disturbing is the cover-up of who/what P-Tech was, was doing, and who they were doing it for. How did P-Tech get the highest security clearances possible? Why was no one involved in or with the company ever prosecuted? - in fact, there were no trials - only some sham 'investigations'. P-Tech is another important piece of the puzzle that is 911 and certainly a very sinister one. Indira Singh was actively speaking out about P-Tech until her main research partner and alternative media host died [she suspects was killed] in 2008. I can not find any trace of her speaking publicly since. M. Ruppert was also very interested in investigating P-Tech, but committed suicide a few years ago - at least partly from despair that the 'bad guys' were winning the 'game' they had rigged. There is even the possibility that P-Tech software [or one of their sister companies doing similar work] provided the software that monitored and/or controlled much of what happened on 911 - even possibly control of the movements of the planes. Those who would know in the government are certainly not telling what they know; instead are trying to resist any information on this and other related subjects coming to public awareness.

    It is beginning to dawn on me that the same forces that were behind 911 and its coverup were behind Trumpf....so I think the 'fourth reich' as Harry Belofonte so aptly named it recently begins in just 3.5 weeks. Welcome to the abyss. This story ties in directly, I believe, to both 911 and those around Trumpf, generally.
    The election was rigged. Trump is a continuation of the NWO trajectory, which is the Fourth Reich.

    Thanks for putting this up. Ptech had drifted out of my mind. I had not heard of Indira Singh before. Her presentation was eye opening to say the least. I really did not understand what PROMIS is until this.
