Forgain for one moment everything you"ve been told around September 11, 2001. Instead let"s ask ourselves one question: What was 9/11? A terrorist atrocity? An assault on America? The initially salvo in a new war? "A day that readjusted everything"?

The question may seem easy, however exactly how we answer it is of essential prominence. It determines just how we proceed with our examination of that day. And as soon as you spilgrimage away the emotional rhetoric and also the fear-inducing imagery, we"re left via a straightforward truth: 9/11 was a crime. And as via any kind of crime, there is one overriding imperative that detectives must follow to identify the perpetrators: Follow the money.

This is an investigation of the 9/11 money trail.

The 9/11 Heist

In 1998, the Port Authority of New York and also New Jersey agreed to privatize the World Trade Center, the complicated of office towers in Lower Manhattan that they had actually owned and operated because their building and construction in 1973. In April 2001 an agreement was got to via a consortium of investors led by Silverstein Properties, and on July 24th, 2001, Larry Silverstein, that already owned World Trade Center Building 7, signed a 99-year lease for the Twin Towers and also Buildings 4 and 5.

The lease was for $3.2 billion and also was financed by a bridge loan from GMAC, the commercial mortgage arm of General Motors, as well as $111 million from Lloyd Goldman and also Joseph Cayre, individual actual estate investors. Silverstein Properties only put down $14 million of its own money.

The deal was inexplicable in a variety of ways. Although the Port Authority carried only $1.5 billion of insurance coverage on the WTC complicated, which previously that year had actually been valued at $1.2 billion, Silverstein had insisted on doubling that amount, insuring the buildings for $3.55 billion. Silverstein"s insurance broker struggled to put that much coverage in location and also ultimately had actually to separation it among 25 dealers. The negotiations were so involved that only temporary contracts were in place for the insurance at the time the lease was signed, and also by September the contracts were still being finalized.

Silverstein"s team was additionally explicitly given the right to rebuild the frameworks if they were destroyed—and even to expand also the amount of retail space on the site if restructure did take area.

Within hrs of the destruction of the Twin Towers on September 11th, Silverstein was on the phone to his lawyers, trying to recognize if his insurance policies might "construe the strikes as two sepaprice, insurable cases rather than one." Silverstein spent years in the courts attempting to win $7.1 billion from his $3.55 billion insurance policy and also in 2007 walked amethod through $4.55 billion, the biggest single insurance settlement ever. As shortly as the deal was announced, Silverstein sued United and American Airlines for a better $3.5 billion for their "negligence" in the 9/11 assaults, a claim that was struck down by the courts yet is still on appeal.

Perhaps also more outrageously, in an enigma deal in 2003, the Port Authority agreed to pay back 80% of their initial equity in the lease, yet allowed the Silverstein team to keep control of the website. The deal provided Silverstein, Goldman and Cayre $98 million of the $125 million they put dvery own on the lease, and a even more $130 million in insurance proceeds that were earmarked for the site"s rebuilding.

In the end, Silverstein profited from the 9/11 attacks to the tune of $4.55 billion and counting.

But that"s the 9/11 insurance heist you experienced. There was a a lot deeper, more complex, and well-concealed heist that was ensuing behind closed doors on September 11, 2001, deep in the heart of the World Trade Center itself.

Marsh & McLennan is a diversified threat, insurance and skilled services firm with over $13 billion in annual revenue and also 57,000 employees. In September of 2001, 2,000 of those employees worked in Marsh"s offices in the World Trade Center. Marsh inhabited floors 93 to 100 of the North Tower, the specific location of the influence and explosion.

In the year before 9/11, Marsh had actually contracted with SilverStream software application to develop an digital connection between Marsh and also its clients for the function of developing "paperless transactions." SilverStream had currently built internet-based transactional and also trading platforms for Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank, Banker’s Trust, Alex Brvery own, Morgan Stanley and various other financial solutions firms that were later on connected in 9/11, but this brand-new job was unprefer anypoint that had been attempted prior to.

Richard Anattracted Grove, the salesperchild who handled the Marsh & McLennan task for SilverStream, explains.

RICHARD GROVE: In 2000 SilverStream was contracted by Marsh to carry out a technical solution beyond what we had done for any of the above-named companies; insofar as it would certainly be supplied to electronically connect Marsh to its significant organization partners using internet portals, for the purpose of creating “papermuch less transactions” and expmodifying revenue and regeneration cycles, and built from the ground up at the client’s site.

SilverStream gave a specific kind of connectivity that was supplied to connect AIG and Marsh & McLennan—the first 2 commercial carriers on the world to employ this kind of transaction—and in truth Marsh was presented via something referred to as the ACORD Award in the summer of 2001 for being the first commercial corporation to carry out so…. And what you need to take away from that is this: it suggests that no various other companies were doing this form of transactivity. So the question in your mind must be: What then were Marsh and also AIG doing, and why did they have to leverage modern technologies that no various other commercial entity on the confront of the earth required to conduct business?

Once securing the contract, SilverStream then stationed approximately 30-to-40 developers at Marsh, and also this team was led by two-to-3 supervisors, through whom I liaised to encertain distribution of the “solution” that was promised. The breakthrough team frequently worked late into the night, if not all night, and also sometimes operated salso days a week in order to adright here to Marsh’s indicated pre-September 11th deadline.

But it was not lengthy prior to severe irregularities in the billing of the account for this project led Richard Grove into the heart of a deeper mystery around the software program, and about the job-related he was involved in.

RICHARD GROVE: I first noticed fiscal anomalies with respect to the job, once I remained in a meeting on the 98th floor in October of 2000 via a gentlemale called Gary Lasko. Gary was Marsh’s North American Chief Indevelopment Officer, and that particular afternoon a colleague and also I aided him identify about $10,000,000 in suspicious purchase orders—after I well-known that specific vendors were deceiving Marsh, and particularly appeared to be selling Marsh large amounts of hardware that were not essential, as this was later on evidenced by Gary.

I carried my concerns up to executives inside of SilverStream, and I was urged to keep quiet and mind my very own organization. I went to an executive at Marsh, and he advised me to perform likewise…. But then I discussed it to a few executives at Marsh whom I could trust—ike Gary Lasko…and also Kathryn Lee, Ken Rice, Ricdifficult Breuhardt, John Ueltzhoeffer—people that ended up being also came to that somepoint untoward was going on.

The involved colleagues I just stated were murdered on September 11th, and the executives that expressed dismight at my concerns are alive and also complimentary today because of it.

I feel that it’s no coincidence, as the Marsh executive who urged me to drop my line of inquiry made sure that his personnel, who I just stated, were in the office bappropriate and also early for an international conference call prior to the staff meeting upon which I was to intrude—a conference call which I was indeveloped this executive in question conducted but attended from the safety of his Upper West Side apartment.

(SOURCE: Project Constellation)

The worldwide conference contact through Marsh"s IT staff on the morning of 9/11, a meeting that included the staff who were investigating the suspicious billing on the SilverStream deal, was shown in a 2006 intercheck out with Marsh"s then-Chief Indevelopment Officer, Ellen Clarke.

Ricdifficult Grove had been asked to attfinish the meeting however was stuck in traffic on the method to the Towers once the attack started. His friends at Marsh were not so lucky: 294 Marsh employees, including every one of the participants in the conference contact in the North Tower, passed away that morning. Meanwhile the Marsh executive that had booked the meeting, the exact same one who had asked Grove to drop the problem of the billing anomalies, was safe in his apartment, attending the meeting through telephone.

So what was the task really about? Why was it so crucial for it to be finimelted prior to September 11th, and what kind of transactions did it enable? More importantly, what information was lost as soon as the information center on the 95th floor of the North Tower endured a direct hit on 9/11 and also the buildings were demolished?

A partial answer originates from reports that emerged in late 2001: that a German firm, Convar, had been hired to reconstruct financial information from the tough disks recovered at Ground Zero. The firm talks around this work-related in its promotional videos.

September the 11th, 2001. The totality human being is in shock adhering to the strikes on the World Trade Center. Convar has some options to offer.

Data stored on numerous tough drives retrieved from the fell down towers was thought to have been shed, but Convar"s professionals can render irreplaceable information readable aacquire at Europe"s just high-security information recovery facility. Burnt, crushed or dirty storage media are prepared to relinquish their tricks by the moment we end up.

(SOURCE: CONVAR - Repair & Service Center)

More details on the job-related come from an IDG News Service story posted to in December 2001. Under the headline "Computer disk drives from WTC could yield clues," the post notes: "An undescribed surge in transactions was tape-recorded before the assaults, causing speculation that someone could have profited from previous knowledge of the terrorist plot by relocating sums of money. But bereason the facilities of many type of financial providers handling the transactions were hoprovided in New York"s World Trade Center, damaged in the blasts, it has till currently been difficult to verify that suspicion."

A Reuters article from the same time, later on posted to Convar"s website, supplies revealing glimpses right into the investigation"s at an early stage results. It quotes Peter Herschel, Convar"s director at the time.

"The suspicion is that inside indevelopment about the strike was supplied to send financial transactivity commands and also authorizations in the belief that amid all the chaos the criminals would certainly have, at the exceptionally least, an excellent head start. Of course it is likewise feasible that tbelow were perfectly legitimate reasons for the inexplicable increase in business volume. It can revolve out that Americans went on an absolute shopping binge on that Tuesday morning. But at this allude there are many transactions that cannot be accounted for. Not just the volume however the size of the transactions was far higher than usual for a day choose that. There is a suspicion that these were probably planned to take benefit of the chaos."

It likewise quotes Rictough Wagner, among the providers data retrieval experts. "There is a suspicion that some world had breakthrough understanding of the approximate time of the aircraft crashes in order to move out amounts exceeding $100 million. They assumed that the records of their transactions can not be traced after the mainframes were destroyed."

Was the revolutionary electronic trading link in between AIG and also Marsh being offered to funnel money with the World Trade Center at the moment of the attack? Were the strike perpetrators hoping that the destruction of Marsh"s data center, on the 9fifth floor at the dead center of the North Tower explosion, would conceal their financial crime?

One item of corroborating evidence for this idea originates from author and also researcher Michael Ruppert, who reported in 2004 that immediately before the attacks started, computer system systems in Deutsche Bank, among SilverStream"s various other e-link clients, had actually been taken over from an outside place that no one in the office can recognize.

MICHAEL RUPPERT: Within, I would certainly guess -- I"d need to go ago and also look at the book, but it was no even more than a week of the strikes -- I was being contacted by the majority of human being, from inside official resources who were raising a lot of inquiries. This one specific perkid was exceptionally credible. They absolutely persuaded me they had actually been an employee of Deutsche Bank in the Twin Towers, and also they told me exceptionally clearly that in the moments ideal before the strikes and in the time of the strike -- there was a 40-minute home window in between the time the initially plane struck the World Trade Center and the second aircraft -- that Deutsche Bank"s computers in New York City had been "taken over." Absolutely co-opted and run. There was a enormous information purge, a enormous information downfill, and all kinds of stuff was moving.

And what this perkid said incredibly plainly was that no one in the Deutsche Bank workplaces in the towers at the time had actually the ability to proccasion what was going on from any type of of their terminals.

Sadly, no answer to the inquiries elevated by these accounts is forthcoming from Convar. After the initial reporting on the investigation, which provided that the company was functioning with the FBI to recover and also analyze the information, Convar currently refsupplies to talk around the information they uncovered.

DUTCH REPORTER: Is it true that huge amounts of money were transferred illegally out of the World Trade Center on the morning of 9/11, just prior to the attacks?

CONVAR SPOKESMAN: If you would look on the webwebsite, I would say "Yes."


CONVAR SPOKESMAN: Because that was the indevelopment from a previous release.


CONVAR SPOKESMAN: If you were to ask me today I would certainly should tell you I could not offer you any kind of extra information about that. I"m really sorry about...

DUTCH REPORTER: What if I were to ask you one year ago? What would certainly you have actually...

CONVAR SPOKESMAN: I would certainly have sassist that what we have actually there is what we sassist prior to. Yes, precisely.

At the time of 9/11, Marsh"s chief of risk management was Paul Bremer, the former regulating director of Kissinger and also Associates that went on to overcheck out the US occupation of Iraq. On the morning of 9/11 he was not in his office at Marsh & MacLennan, but at NBC"s TV studio, wright here he was delivering the main story of the attack.

NBC4 ANCHOR #1: Can you talk to us a small little bit about...around...who could...I mean, tbelow are a restricted variety of groups who might be responsible for somepoint of this magnitude, correct?

PAUL BREMER: Yes, this is an extremely well-planned, exceptionally well-coordinated assault, which says it is extremely well-organized centrally, and tbelow are only three or four candidates in the world really that could have conducted this attack.

NBC4 ANCHOR #2: Bin Laden involves mind right amethod, Mr. Bremer.

PAUL BREMER: Indeed, he definitely does. Bin Laden was involved in the first strike on the World Trade Center which had actually as its intention doing specifically what taken place here, which wregarding collapse both towers. He certainly has to be a prime suspect. But there are others in the Middle East, and there are at least two says, Iran and Iraq, which have to at least remajor on the list of potential suspects.

NBC4 ANCHOR #2: I do not recontact anypoint prefer this. Pearl Harbor taken place a month before I was born and also I hear my parental fees talk around that as a seminal occasion in their stays all the time. I"m not mindful of anything choose this in the United States prior to. Americans are now -- I think it"s fair to say -- really scared. Should we be?

NBC4 ANCHOR #1: This is a day that will certainly adjust our lives, isn"t it?

PAUL BREMER: It is a day that will certainly adjust our resides, and also it"s a day once the battle that the terrorists claimed on the United States -- and also after all, they did declare a war on us -- has been lugged home to the United States in a much more dramatic method than we"ve seen before, so it will certainly readjust our stays.

9/11 Insider Trading

On September 12, 2001, prior to the dust had actually even settled on Ground Zero, the Securities and also Exadjust Commission opened up an investigation right into a chilling proposition: that an unrecognized group of traders through development knowledge of the 9/11 plot had made millions betting versus the carriers affiliated in the strikes.

ANTONIO MORA: "What many type of Wall Street experts think is that the terrorists made bets that a variety of stocks would certainly view their prices fall. They did so by buying what they call "puts." If you bet ideal the rewards have the right to be huge. The dangers are likewise huge unless you recognize something poor is going to occur to the agency you"re betting versus.

DYLAN RATIGAN: This could extremely well be insider trading at the worst, a lot of horrific, a lot of evil usage you"ve ever seen in your whole life.

ANTONIO MORA: One instance, United Airlines. The Thursday prior to the strike even more than two thousand contracts betting that the stock would go down were purchased. Ninety times even more in sooner or later than in 3 weeks. When the industries reopened, United"s stock dropped, the price of the contracts soared, and also someone may have made most money, rapid.

DYLAN RATIGAN: $180,000 transforms into $2.4 million as soon as that airplane hits the World Trade Center.

ANTONIO MORA: It"s virtually the very same story with Amerihave the right to Airlines.

DYLAN RATIGAN: That"s a fivefold increase in the value of what was a $337,000 profession on Monday (September 10, 2001).

ANTONIO MORA: All of a sudden becomes what?

DYLAN RATIGAN: $1.8 million.

ANTONIO MORA: And there"s much more, including an extraordinarily high variety of bets versus Morgan Stanley and also Marsh & McLennan, 2 of the World Trade Center"s biggest tenants. Could this be a coincidence?

DYLAN RATIGAN: This would certainly be among the many extrasimple coincidences in the history of mankind if it was a coincidence."

Although the put options on Amerihave the right to and United Airlines are usually cited in referral to the 9/11 insider trading, these trades just represent a fraction of the suspicious trades leading approximately the assault. Between August 20th and also September 10th, abcommonly big spikes in put option task showed up in trades involving dozens of different carriers whose stocks plunged after the strike, consisting of Boeing, Merrill Lynch, J.P. Morgan, Citigroup, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, Munich Re and the AXA Group.

Traders weren’t simply betting versus the suppliers whose stocks dove after 9/11, but. Tbelow was also a sixfold boost in contact options on the stock of defense contractor Raytheon on the day before 9/11. The choices permitted the traders to buy Raytheon stock at $25. Within a week of the attack, as the American military began deploying the Raytheon-supplied Tomahawk missiles they would certainly ultimately usage in the intrusion of Afghanistan, the company’s share price had swarm up 37% to over $34.

The SEC weren"t the only ones interested in this certain 9/11 money trail, either. Investigations into potential insider trading before the strikes were opened by authorities about the globe, from Belgium to France to Germany to Switzerland to Japan. It wasn"t long prior to this worldwide financial manhunt began yielding clues on the trail of the terror traders.

On September 17th, Italian Fopower Minister Antonio Martino, addressing Italian Consob"s own examination right into potential 9/11 trading, said: "I think that tbelow are terrorist claims and also institutions behind speculation on the worldwide markets."

By September 2fourth, the Belgian Finance Minister, Didier Reynders, was confident enough to publicly announce Belgium"s "strong suspicions that British industries might have been used for transactions."

The president of Germany"s central financial institution, Ernst Welteke, was the many adamant: "What we discovered renders us certain that people linked to the terrorists need to have actually been trying to profit from this tragedy."

These foreign leaders were not alone in their conviction that insider trading had actually taken area. University of Chicback finance professor George Constantinides, Columbia University regulation professor John Coffee, Fight It Out University law professor James Cox and other academics and popular options traders prefer Jon Najarian all expressed their belief that investors had traded on development knowledge of the attacks.

The scale of the SEC examination was extraordinary, examining over 9.5 million securities transactions, including stocks and alternatives in 103 different companies trading in seven markets, 32 exchange-traded funds, and also stock indices. The probe attracted on the assistance of the legal and also compliance staff of the 20 biggest trading firms and also the regulatory authorities in ten foreign federal governments. The Commission coordinated its investigation with the FBI, the Department of Justice, and also the Department of the Treasury.

The outcome of this investigation?

"We have actually not arisen any type of evidence saying that those that had actually development knowledge of the September 11 assaults traded on the basis of that information."

Although this sounds choose the investigation did not discover evidence of insider trading, a 2nd look reveals the trick; they are not saying that tright here was no insider trading, just that tbelow is no proof that "those who had advancement understanding of the September 11 attacks" participated in such trading. But this begs the question: Who had actually that breakthrough knowledge, and also how did the SEC identify this?

The 9/11 Commission Report begs the question also more blatantly in their therapy of the anomalous put alternative activity on United Airlines stock on September 6: 95% of the puts were inserted by "a single U.S.-based institutional investor through no conceivable ties to al Qaeda." Aacquire, it is taken as a foregone conclusion that a lack of ties to "al Qaeda" implies tbelow could not have actually been advancement understanding of the strike, also if the proof mirrors insider trading took area.

To be sure, insider trading practically definitely did take place in the weeks prior to 9/11. Although some have actually supplied the Commission report to conclude that the story was debunked, the intervening years have actually seen the release of not one, not two, but 3 sepaprice scientific records concluding via high probcapacity that the anomalous trading was the outcome of advance understanding.

In "Unusual Option Market Activity and the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001," College of Chicearlier professor Allen Poteshguy concluded: "Examicountry of the option trading leading up to September 11 reveals that tbelow was an unusually high level of put buying. This finding is consistent via informed investors having actually traded alternatives in advance of the attacks."

In "Detecting Abnormal Trading Activities in Option Markets," researchers at the College of Zuaffluent provided econometric techniques to confirm inexplicable put choice activity on the stocks of essential airlines, banks and reinsurers in the weeks prior to 9/11.

And in "Was Tbelow Abnormal Trading in the S&P 500 Index Options Prior to the September 11 Attacks?" a team of researchers concluded that abnormal task in the S&P index choices market around the time of the strike "is continuous via insiders anticipating the 9-11 assaults."

The just question, then, is that was profiting from these trades and also why was no one ever before indicted for their participation in them?

One lead is gone after by researcher and author Kevin Ryan. In "Evidence for Informed Trading on the Attacks of September 11," he examines an FBI briefing document from 2003 that was declassified in 2009. It explains the results of FBI investigations into 2 of the pre-9/11 trades that the Bureau had actually figured out as suspicious, consisting of the purchase of 56,000 shares of Stratesec in the days prior to 9/11. Stratesec provided security devices to airports (including, ironically, Dulles Airport, and also the World Trade Center and United Airlines) and saw its share price nearly double as soon as the industries re-opened up on September 17th, 2001.

The trades traced ago to a couple whose names are redacted from the memo, however are conveniently identifiable from the unredacted information: Mr. and also Mrs. Wirt D. Walker III, a remote loved one of the Shrub family and organization companion of Marvin Bush, the President"s brother. The record notes that the pair were never before even interperceived as part of the examination because it had actually "revealed no ties to terrorism or various other negative indevelopment."

In addition to begging the question, this characterization is provably false. As Ryan detailed in a conversation via financial journalist Lars Schall:

KEVIN RYAN: "Wirt Dexter Walker at Stratesec hired a number of world from a firm dubbed The Carlyle Group, and The Carlyle Group had Bin-Laden family members members as investors. Also Wirt Walker"s fellow (inaudible) director James Abrahamboy was a close organization associate of a male named Mansoor Ijaz, a Pakistani businessguy and Mansoor Ijaz declared to have the ability to contact Osama Bin-Laden on multiple occasions.

So tright here does seem to be some circumstantial evidence shown that these world were connected to Al-Qaeda, at leastern to the allude wbelow we have to investigate.

LARS SCHALL: And isn"t it additionally true that some members of the Bin-Laden family members were actually in Washington at the gathering of The Carlyle Group on 9/11?

KEVIN RYAN: That"s true. The Carlyle Group had a meeting at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington on September 11th and current tbelow were former President George H. W. Bush, James Baker and the brother of Osama Bin-Laden. I believe his name was Salem, I can not recall his specific name. But they were tbelow, investors from the Bin-Laden family members meeting via Carlyle Group representatives in Washington on September 11th."

(SOURCE: Terror Trading 9/11)

Was this why the FBI believed much better of questioning him over his highly profitable purchase of Stratesec shares ideal before 9/11?

The CIA figures prominently in another line of examination. One suspicious United Airlines put choice purchase that was investigated by the FBI affiliated a 2,500-contract order for puts in the days before 9/11. Instead of handling the purchase via United Airlines" residence exchange, the Chicback Board of Options Exadjust, the order was separation right into five 500-contract chunks and also run with five different choices exhchanges all at once. The unexplained order was brokered by Deutsch Bank Alex. Brvery own, a firm that till 1998 was chaired by A.B. "Buzzy" Krongard, a former consultant to CIA director James Woolsey that at the time of 9/11 was himself the Executive Director of the CIA.

MICHAEL C. RUPPERT: So best after the strikes of 9/11 the name Buzzy Krongard surfaced, it was prompt study that revealed that Buzzy Krongard had been allegedly recruited by CIA Director George Tennant to come to be the Executive Director at (the) CIA, which is the number three place, right before the strikes.

And Alex Brown was among the many subsidiaries of Deutsche Bank, (which was) among the main vehicles or instruments that taken on every one of these criminal trades by civilization who obviously kbrand-new that the assaults were going to take place wbelow, how and involving specific airlines.

(SOURCE: Terror Trading 9/11)

Perhaps the many frank admission of insider trading is noteworthy for 3 things: It was recorded on video, it has never been investigated by any agency or legislation enforcement main, and it was made by previous CIA agent and frequent foreign policy commentator Robert Baer, the real-life catalyst for the character depicted by George Clooney in "Syriana." Talking to citizen journalists after a speaking event in Los Angeles in 2008, Baer was taped on video making a startling assertion about 9/11 insider trading:

JEREMY ROTHE-KUSHEL: ...the last point I want to leave you through is the National Reconnaissance Office was running a drill of a airplane crashing into their structure and you know they"re staffed by DoD and CIA...

ROBERT BAER: I understand the male that went into his broker in San Diego and shelp "Cash me out, it"s going down tomorrow."



STEWART HOWE: That tells us something.


STEWART HOWE: That tells us somepoint.

ROBERT BAER: Well, his brother operated at the White Housage.

(SOURCE: WeAreChangeLA debriefs CIA Case Officer Robert Baer around evident Mossad and White Housage 9/11 foreknowledge)

This truly exceptional statement bears even more scrutiny. If Baer is to be believed, a former CIA agent has actually first-hand also knowledge that a White Housage insider had foreknowledge of the attacks, and also to this particular day not only has actually Baer never before revealed the identification of this person, yet no one has questioned him around his statement or also attempted to pursue this lead.

So just how is it feasible that the SEC overlooked, ignored, or sindicate decided not to seek such leads in their investigation? The just possible answer, of course, is that the examination was deliberately steered away from such persons of interemainder and any type of relations that would lead ago to foreexpertise by government agencies, federal agents, or their associates in the service people.

Unfortunately, we will certainly likely never before check out documentary proof of that from the Commission itself. One researcher requesting access under the Freedom of Information Act to the documentary proof that the 9/11 Commission used to conclude tbelow had actually been no insider trading got a response that declared "that the potentially responsive documents have been destroyed."

Instead, we are left through resources that refusage to be determined, saying that CBOE records of pre-9/11 options trading have actually been destroyed and second-hand also accounts of traders that had heard talk of an occasion in development of 9/11.

In a round-about method, perhaps the 9/11 Commission reveals more than it lets on when it tries to dismiss out on key insider trades through the pithy observation that the traders had actually no conceivable ties to Al Qaeda. If those via foreknowledge of the assaults weren"t associated to Al Qaeda, what does that say about the identity of the actual 9/11 perpetrators?

ANTONIO MORA: ABC News has currently learned that the Chicback Board of Options Exreadjust introduced their examination right into the unexplained trading last week. That may have offered them enough time to speak anyone from profiting from death right here in the UNITED STATE It might also give investigators, Peter, a "warm trail" that can lead them to the terrorists.

PETER JENNINGS: Thanks very a lot. As a reminder of the complications right here, the Secretary of the Treasury sassist here today of this investigation, "You"ve gained to go with ten veils before you can obtain to the actual resource."


PETER JENNINGS: Thanks, Antonio.

PTech and also Vulgar Betrayal

PTech was a Quincy, Mass.-based agency specializing in "enterpincrease design software program," a kind of powerful computer system modeling regime that permits large-scale institutions to map their systems and employees and to monitor them in genuine time. The person running this software has a "God"s-eye" see of processes, personnel and also transactions, and also the capability to usage this information to foresee difficulties prior to they take place and also to intervene to soptimal them from happening.

As a senior consultant working on risk management for JPMbody organ at the moment of 9/11, Indira Singh was searching for precisely this form of software program to implement the bank"s next-generation risk blueprint. In her search for the ultimate danger administration software application, PTech"s name was floated as the ideal candidate for the job.

INDIRA SINGH: I had a good life. I did "risk" at JP Mbody organ Chase, just to take a break from all the hefty stuff. What I"d perform wregarding devise a method to monitor everything going on in a really huge firm to speak huge troubles from happening. Tright here is that bit cloud tbelow and my extremely bizarre picture of just how I think around this trouble. I am a perkid that was merging two disciplines: Risk Management and also something called "Enterprise Architecture" which is fairly esoteric however at the end of the day, we look for to proccasion huge troubles from happening all over in a huge global enterprise.

At JP Morgan I was functioning on the following generation "hazard blueprint" which is all about just how to prevent these things from happening. Bad service practice such as money laundering, rogue trading and also massive computer failures, anything you might imagine (that) might go wrong.

I had actually the majority of leeway consulting as a "Senior Risk Architect" to think out of the box and also actually gain my ideas applied. I was funded out of a strategic fund, I reported to the directors and also I was pretty happy. JP Mbody organ thought very very of me and they were thinking of funding, in conjunction via my project in D.C., the next-generation hazard software.

What I must execute (and) what I did was (find) a really smart item of software program. Really, really smart. It"s project would be to think about all of the indevelopment and this is where you might attach a dot. The job of this software program would be to think about every one of the indevelopment that represented what was going on in the enterprise at any type of provided time as bank business was being transacted world-wide. For instance, it would (act) as a monitoring software application that tried to find trading patterns that indicated that someone was up as well no excellent and also then do something about it: sfinish a message somewbelow, send transaction information somewbelow, probably shut their system dvery own, perhaps shut an additional system down, maybe begin something else up somewhere else. This type of capcapacity is exceptionally, exceptionally necessary in today"s civilization.

However before this sort of software program is not uncovered in Microsoft or not even in IBM. A tiny group of incredibly esoteric software program service providers make this type of enterpclimb software and it is exceptionally pricey. So you can not afford to pick wrong and I asked all my colleagues who were sector gurus; what would they recommfinish for this?

My buddies recommfinished PTech.

Indeed, it"s not challenging to watch why PTech came so highly recommfinished. Given the nature of this sensitive risk-management work, only a company with suffer delivering software to large organizations with keys to defend would certainly fit the bill, and in this regard PTech did not disappoint. Their client roster had a veritable who"s that of top-level corpoprice and governmental clients: the FBI, the IRS, NATO, the Air Force, the Naval Air Command also, the Departments of Energy and Education, the Postal Service, the US House of Representatives, the Department of Defense, the Secret Service, even the White Housage.

From the inner sanctum of the White Housage to the headquarters of the FBI, from the basement of the FAA to the boardroom of IBM, some of the best-secured institutions in the human being running on some of the most-protected servers housing the the majority of sensitive information invited PTech right into their middle. PTech was given the keys to the cyber kingdom to develop detailed pictures of these institutions, their weaknesses and also vulnerabilities, and to display how these troubles can be exploited by those of ill intent. But favor all such units, it can be exploited by those of ill intent for their own functions, too.

Given the nature of the indevelopment and secrets being preserved by its clients, it must come as no surpclimb that many of PTech"s optimal investors and also employees were males with backgrounds that need to have been elevating red flags at all levels of the federal government. And as it transforms out, at least among these men did raise red flags via a pair of diligent FBI field agents.

In the late 1990s, Robert Wbest and John Vincent—FBI special agents in the Chicearlier area office—were running an investigation right into terrorist financing dubbed Vulgar Betrayal. From the extremely start, the investigation was hampered by higher-ups; they were not even provided access to the computer devices required to carry out their occupational. Thstormy Wideal and Vincent"s foresight and also perseverance, but, the examination managed to score some victories, including seizing $1.4 million in terrorist funds. According to Wappropriate, "these funds were connected directly to Saudi businessman Yasin al-Qadi."

Yasin al-Qadi is a multi-millionaire businessman and philanthropist that, according to service associates, favored to boast of his partnership through previous Vice President Cock Cheney. But in the late 1990s he was sanctioned by the UN Security Council for his suspected links to Al Qaeda, and also after 9/11 he was put on a terrorist watch list by the US Treasury for his suspected ties to terrorist financing.

Throughout the 1990s, as Vulgar Betrayal was being thwarted from opening a criminal investigation right into his tasks, the Qadi-backed investment firm Sarmany Ltd. ended up being an "angel investor" to a software application startup called PTech, providing $5 million of the initial $20 million of capital that obtained PTech off the ground.

At the moment, PTech"s CEO denied that al-Qadi had any type of involvement via the firm other than his initial investment, however the FBI now maintains he was lying and also that in fact al-Qadi continued investing millions of dollars in the firm through assorted fronts and also investment vehicles. Company insiders told FBI officials that they were flown to Saudi Arabia to satisfy PTech"s investors in 1999 and also that al-Qadi was introduced as among the owners. It has likewise been reported that Hussein Ibrahim, PTech"s chief scientist, was al-Qadi"s representative at PTech and al-Qadi"s lawyers have admitted that al-Qadi"s representative might have actually continued to sit on PTech"s board also after 9/11.

Ibrahim himself was a former president of BMI, a New Jersey-based genuine estate investment firm that was also one of the initial investors in PTech and offered financing for PTech"s beginning loan. PTech leased office space and computer tools from BMI and BMI common office area in New Jersey with Kadi Internationwide, owned and operated by none other than Yassin al-Qadi. In 2003, counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke said: "BMI organized itself out publicly as a financial services provider for Muslims in the USA, its investor list says the possibility this facade was simply a cover to conceal terrorist support."

Suheil Laheir was PTech"s chief architect. When he wasn"t creating the software that would certainly carry out PTech with in-depth operational blueprints of the most sensitive agencies in the UNITED STATE federal government, he was composing posts in praise of Islamic holy battle. He was likewise fond of quoting Abdullah Azzam, Osama Bin Laden"s mentor and the head of Maktab al-Khidamat, which was the precursor to Al-Qaeda.

That such an unlikely actors of personalities were provided access to some of the many sensitive agencies in the UNITED STATE federal federal government is startling sufficient. That they were operating software program that enabled them to map, analyze and accessibility eexceptionally process and procedure within these agencies for the objective of finding systemic weak points is equally startling. Most disturbing of all, though, is the connection between PTech and the incredibly agencies that so remarkably "failed" in their duty to defend the American public on September 11, 2001.

BONNIE FAULKNER: Could you describe the partnership of PTech with the FAA? PTech operated via the FAA for numerous years, didn’t they?

INDIRA SINGH: Yes. It was a joint project in between PTech and also MITRE. It is interesting. They were looking at, basically, holes in the FAA’s interoperability with responding via various other agencies—law enforcement—in the case of an emergency such as a hijacking.

They were searching for the escalation process—what people would carry out, how they would respond in situation of an emergency—and discover the holes and also make referrals to resolve it. Now if anyone was in a place to understand also where the holes were, PTech was, and also that is specifically the point: if anybody was in a place to create software program to take benefit of those holes, it would have been PTech.

BONNIE FAULKNER: Was tbelow a recommendation to PTech having operated in the basement out of the FAA?

INDIRA SINGH: Yes. Typically, bereason the scope of such tasks are so over-arching and wide-ranging, when you are doing an enterpclimb style job, you have accessibility to just how anypoint in the organization is being done, where it is being done, on what units, what the indevelopment is. You have carte blanche.

If it is a significant project that spends a number of years, the team that comes in has, literally, access to almost anything that they desire bereason you are operating on a blueprint level, on a enormous range. So, yes, they were everywhere, and also I was told that they were in places that forced clearances. I was told that they had actually log-on access to FAA trip control computers. I was told that they had passwords to many type of computer systems that you might not, on the surconfront, think has actually anything to perform with finding out holes in the system, however let’s say you isolated component of an alert process that was mediated by computer and you wanted to investigate it better, then you would certainly commonly obtain log-on accessibility to that computer. From that, ago upstream or downstream. So, who knows?

From my very own endure I can have actually access to virtually anypoint I wanted to in JP Mbody organ Chase. And did not, for the reason that if anything went wrong, I did not want to have actually the access. But if you were up to no good as an enterprise architect through such a manday, you generally could have access to anypoint.

So that was really behind PTech? Did Ziade, Ibrahim and also the others somehow evade the due diligence of every one of the government agencies and also multinational corporations that PTech contracted with? Did PTech simply happen to end up working on the interoperability of the FAA and the Pentagon systems on the morning of 9/11? Did al-Qadi"s friend Dick Cheney really recognize nopoint of Qadi"s relationships or activities? Was this all some devious Al Qaeda plot to infiltrate crucial systems and agencies of the US government?

Not according to the human being that were really investigating the firm.

INDIRA SINGH: Who"s really behind PTech is the question. Correct. I asked that of many type of knowledge human being who came to my aid as I was being blackdetailed and also I was told: "Indira, it is a CIA clandestine procedure on the level of Iran-Contra." And I have actually factor to believe this bereason CARE Internationwide is a renamed variation of Al Kifah, which was the finding arm for WTC 93, prior to Al Kifah it was called Maktab al-Khidamat which was the resources arms for the Afghani mujahidin. It was exactly how the moneys obtained to Osama Bin-Laden via the Pakistani ISI.

I asked the FBI in Boston: ""How come Mak was being run out of Ptech and also 9/11?" and also that jived via the majority of what intel was informing me that "it"s a CIA front, shut up and also go ameans." At that level I shelp "Well why does not the FBI take advantage of their celebrated distinction through the CIA" and I was told "because at that level they job-related together."

So what did the 9/11 Commission need to say about PTech? Absolutely nothing. The co-chair of the commission, Thomas Kean, had been involved in a $24 million real estate transaction via BMI, one of the PTech investors, however no cite was made of that at the time and the Commission never looked right into PTech or its activities on 9/11.

At the same time, Cheney"s friend al-Qadi has because been rerelocated from the Swiss, European, UN Security Council and also US Treasury terrorist sanctions lists.

And Robert Wright? After Vulgar Betrayal was shut dvery own, the FBI did inevitably raid PTech"s workplaces in December 2002...yet not before the agency was offered breakthrough warning of the "rassist." The very following day then-Homeland Security chief Tom Ridge claimed that PTech "in no way jeopardizes the protection of the country."

Oussama Ziade is still wanted by the FBI for lying about al-Qadi"s involvement with the agency, yet the case is currently cold.

ROBERT WRIGHT: To the families and also victims....of September 11th...on behalf of John Vincent, Barry Carnaby and myself...we"re sorry.

The Pentagon"s Missing Trillions

DONALD RUMSFELD: The topic today is an devil that poses a risk, a severe threat, to the protection of the USA of America. This devil is one of the world"s last bastions of main planning. It governs by dictating five-year plans. From a solitary capital, it attempts to impose its requirements throughout time areas, continents, seas and also past. With brutal consistency, it stifles totally free assumed and also crushes brand-new ideas. It disrupts the defense of the USA and locations the stays of men and womales in unidevelop at risk.

(SOURCE: Defense Company Practices)

On September 10, 2001, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld declared a brand-new war. Not a war on a shadowy terrorist company in Afghanistan, or also a war on terror, yet a war on the Pentagon itself.

DONALD RUMSFELD: The devil is closer to home. It"s the Pentagon administration.

(SOURCE: Defense Business Practices)

Perhaps it is no surprise that Rumsfeld felt compelbrought about declare a battle on the Pentagon"s bureaucracy. The issue of the Pentagon"s $2.3 trillion accountancy nightmare had actually been dogging him given that his confirmation hearings in January of 2001. Although Rumsfeld was interested in pushing forward a modernization of the military that was projected to cost an additional $50 billion in funding, that agenda was politically difficult in the challenge of the Department of Defense"s monupsychological budacquire problem.

SEN. BYRD: How have the right to we seriously take into consideration a $50 billion boost in the Defense Department budget when DoD"s own auditors—once DoD"s very own auditors—say the department cannot account for $2.3 trillion in transactions in one year alone.

Now, my question to you is, Mr. Secretary, what execute you plan to execute about this?

DONALD RUMSFELD: Decline the nomination! (Laughs.) (Laughter.) Ah! Senator, I have actually heard --

SEN. BYRD: I don"t want to see you do that! (Laughter.)

SEN. LEVIN: (Sounds gavel.) We"ll stand adjourned, in that case! (Laughter.)

DONALD RUMSFELD: Senator, I have heard some of that and read some of that, that the department is not capable of auditing its publications. It is -- I was going to say "terrifying."

(SOURCE: Defense Secretary Nomicountry Hearing Jan 11 2001)

"Terrifying" only starts to explain the difficulty.

The Department of Defense"s very own Inspector General report for Fiscal Year 1999 detailed that the Defense Finance and Accounting Service had actually processed $7.6 trillion of department-level bookkeeping entries in that year. Of that amount, just $3.5 trillion could be effectively accounted for. $2.3 trillion in transactions were fudged to make entries balance, run through without proper documentation, or made up completely. The Inspector General"s office did not even examine the various other $1.8 trillion in transactions because they "did not have actually enough time or staff to review" them.

In 2002 one DFAS accountant blew the whistle on the problem and also the cover-up that was underway to speak investigators from finding out wright here the money went.

VINCE GONZALES: $2.3 trillion via a "T." That"s 8,000 dollars for eextremely guy, woman and also son in America. To understand how the Pentagon can shed track of trillions, consider the case of one military accountant who tried to uncover out what taken place to a mere $300 million.

JIM MINNERY: We know it"s gone, yet we don"t recognize what they spent it on.

VINCE GONZALES: Jim Minnery, a previous Naval turned whistlebreduced, is risking his job by speaking out for the first time about the millions he noticed were missing from one defense agency"s balance sheets. Minnery tried to follow the money trail, also crisscrossing the country looking for records.

JIM MINNERY: The director looked at me and shelp, "Why do you treatment around this stuff?" That took me aago, you know. My supervisor asked me why I care around doing an excellent job.

VINCE GONZALES: He was reassigned, and also states officials then extended up the problem by simply composing it off.

JIM MINNERY: They"ve acquired to cover it up.

As Comptroller of the Pentagon from 2001 to 2004, Dov Zakheim was the man tasked through addressing this problem.

DONALD RUMSFELD: There are all kinds of long-standing rules and regulations about what you deserve to do and what you can"t perform. I recognize Dr. Zakheim"s been trying to hire CPAs bereason the financial systems of the department are so snarled up that we can not account for some $2.6 trillion in transactions that exist, if that"s believable. And yet we"re told that we can not hire CPAs to aid untangle it in many respects.

REP. LEWIS: Mr. Secretary, the initially time and also the last time that Dov Zackheim and also I broke breview together, he told me he would have actually a manage on that 2.6 trillion by currently. (Laughter.) But we"ll comment on that a tiny --

DONALD RUMSFELD: He"s gained a handle; it"s just a tiny hot. (Laughter.)

(SOURCE: Testimony before the Housage Appropriations Committee: FY2002 Spending Plan Request)

From 1987 to 2001, Zakheim headed SCOMPUTER Internationwide, a subsidiary of System Planning Corporation, a defense contractor offering airwarfare, cybersecurity and progressed military electronic devices to the Department of Defense and DARPA. SPC"s "Radar Physics Laboratory" emerged a remote regulate mechanism for airborne vehicles that they were marketing to the Pentagon before 9/11.

Zakheim was additionally a participant in drafting "Rebuilding America"s Defenses," a paper that dubbed for a sweeping transformation of the US army, including the implementation of the $50 billion missile defense routine and also increased use of specialized military technologies. The paper also detailed exactly how "progressed develops of biological warfare that can target specific genokinds might transdevelop organic warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."

"Restructure America"s Defenses" was a white paper developed by the Project for a New Amerideserve to Century, a group established in 1997 through the goal of projecting American worldwide prominence into the 2first century. Joining Zakheim in the group were a host of other neocons that ended up populating the Bush administration, consisting of Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Jeb Bush, and also Donald Rumsfeld. In their September 2000 record, the group lamented that their plan for transcreating the military was not most likely unless a defining event took location, one that would galvanize public opinion: "he process of transdevelopment, also if it brings revolutionary adjust, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and also catalyzing event—like a brand-new Pearl Harbor."

DONALD RUMSFELD: We know that the thing that tends to register on civilization is fear, and also we know that that has a tendency to take place after there"s a Pearl Harbor, often tends to happen after there"s a crisis. And that"s also late for us. We"ve obtained to be smarter than that. We"ve obtained to be wiser than that. We have to be more forward-looking.

There"s a wonderful book on Pearl Harbor by Roberta Wohlstetter, and a forward by Dr. Schelling, that talks about this difficulty of seeing points occur and not integrating them in your mind and also saying, "Yes, we need to be doing something around that currently," that I rereview periodically bereason it"s so important.

The assault on the Pentagon struck Wedge One on the west side of the building. An office of the UNITED STATE Army dubbed Reresource Services Washington had actually simply relocated earlier into Wedge One after renovations had actually taken area tbelow. The office was staffed with 45 accountants, bookkeepers and also budacquire analysts; 34 of them were killed in the assault.

A 2002 follow-up report from the DoD Inspector General on the missing trillions listed that a better $1.1 trillion in consisted of bookkeeping entries were processed by the Pentagon in fiscal year 2000, but they did not even attempt to quantify the missing funds for 2001. The Secretary of the Military, Thomas White, later defined they were unable to produce a financial report for 2001 at all because of "the loss of financial-management personnel continual in the time of the Sept. 11 terrorist assault."

Before ending up being Secretary of the Army, Thomas White was a senior executive at Enron. Enron was among the biggest energy carriers in the people, posting a $111 billion profit in 2000 prior to being exposed as an intricate corporate audit fraud in 2001. The SEC, which investigated the Enron scandal, lived in the 11th to 13th floors in World Trade Center Building 7, and their workplaces were destroyed on 9/11, damaging 3,000 to 4,000 documents on energetic investigations in the procedure.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Rumsfeld"s War on the Pentagon"s Bureaucracy did not yield the outcomes he promised. By 2013, the unaccountable money in the Pentagon"s coffers had actually reach $8.5 trillion.

REPORTER: The latest scandal to hit Washington originates from a report revealing the Pentagon "misplaced" $8.5 trillion. Military leaders have additionally been found ordering subordinates to medical professional publications to hide the absent money. This is the conclusion of a unique report by Reuters.

One previous Pentagon employee, Linda Woodford, said she invested 15 years there falsifying financial documents. Woodford had a task checking Navy bookkeeping documents against numbers offered by the Treasury Department. She sassist money was missing from the report eexceptionally month.

(SOURCE: $8.5 Trillion Missing From Pentagon Budget)

GAYANE CHICHAKYAN: National security professional Steve Miles is below through me to help us crunch these numbers. $8.5 trillion unaccounted for?

STEPHEN MILES: That"s the majority of money. This is the type of thing that you would certainly think would certainly carry Capitol Hill to a screeching halt. There"d be hearings practically eexceptionally day. You"d have miscellaneous committees looking into it. Namong that. It just leads to massive waste and there have the right to be all sorts of fraud that you do not understand about.

Just one instance, once the Inspector General looked at Iraq -- which was the majority of money, however in the grand scheme just a section of the money the UNITED STATE spent -- what they uncovered was around $50 billion of the money the U.S. spent there was wasted and about $6 billion was completely lost. They had actually no principle wright here it went, it was entirely unaccounted for. Placed that in perspective. That"s around the amount of money that various other countries would certainly spfinish on their defense, complete. And that"s just the loose pocket adjust that we shed in the couch.

GAYANE CHICHAKYAN: One thing I found incredibly exciting in this report is that the Pentagon reportedly offers typical operating procedure to enter false numbers, or so-dubbed "plugs," to cover lost or absent information in their audit in order to submit a balanced budobtain to the Treasury. So they deserve to create in everything.

STEPHEN MILES: This is probably the the majority of shocking part of this. They get to the end of the day and also they say, "Oh, there"s money absent, what perform we do?" "Well, we"ll simply put a number in there that says it"s tbelow and we"ll type it out later on." Aacquire this is the form of operating exercise that if you did it in your very own business—if you try to perform it with your very own taxes for the government—they"d haul you off to jail.

But then, offered that the trillions have actually never been accounted for, and given that American defense spfinishing soared to document levels after the assault, maybe Rumsfeld"s war on the Pentagon, the one he announced on September 10th, did well after all. And probably September 11th was the essential battle in that war.

DONALD RUMSFELD: Some could ask, how in the people might the Secretary of Defense attack the Pentagon in front of its people? To them I reply, I have no desire to attack the Pentagon; I desire to liberate it.

No Conclusion

Insurance scams and insider trading, digital fraud and Vulgar Betrayal, lacking money and also evidence damaged. Tright here are at leastern 8.5 trillion factors to investigate the money trail of 9/11.

See more: Monday Your Week Presented By Will Ferrell Httpstcokq7Xjgqg65

Curious, then, that the US government"s final word on the strikes, the 9/11 Commission Report, concluded that the money trail was not worthy of investigation at all. In Chapter Five of the report, the commission noted: "To date, the U.S. government has not been able to determine the beginning of the money supplied for the 9/11 strikes. At some point the question is of bit helpful definition."

9/11 was a crime. And as eincredibly detective knows, the first dominance of criminal investigation is to follow the money. So why did the 9/11 Commission particularly reject this rule?

The answers to 9/11 are not going to come from the suspects of the crime. Instead, it"s as much as investigators to continue to unearth the true proof on the 9/11 money trail.
