The Dots Of Those
Who Are Connected
By David Truskoff

connecting the dots at the very beginning.
On the 27th of February 1933,
the Reichstag (German parliament) caught fire. Hitler described the
fire as a "beacon from heaven". History shows that it removed
many obstacles to the Nazi power grab and led directly to the rise of
Hitler and the brutal killing spree that followed. Communists were blamed,
and many were rounded up and imprisoned, but evidence shows the Nazi’s
were responsible for the fire. "You are now witnessing the beginning
of a great epoch in German history...This fire is the beginning,"
Hitler told a news reporter at the scene. What followed was death, destruction,
and horror. The Bush family is all too well acquainted with that part
of history as Prescott Bush (GW’s grandfather) was instrumental
in bringing Hitler to power. One former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor
insisted that Prescott Bush should have been prosecuted for, "giving
aid and comfort to the enemy."
(I can not believe that the
Republican Party of Connecticut still has the annual Prescott Bush honor
Shortly after George Bush
was inaugurated on January 20, 2001, the US stock market seemed to be
crumbling. The 171.32-point drop on August 30, 2001 left the Dow down
more than 500 points for that week alone. Markets the world over caught
the jitters and showed signs of crashing. Close to $5 trillion in paper
wealth was wiped out. Personal debt, caused by credit card and ballooning
mortgages was rising by an average of 8.2% a month. Thousands of workers
were being laid off. Americans were unhappy. They did not feel that
they had elected GW Bush, but that the election was stolen and Bush
was appointed by a stacked Supreme Court. He had no mandate from the
people. There was an American mind lock and a yawning void waiting to
be filled by a political explosion. The explosion came on September
There were people who knew
a way to save Bush and the empire. Names jump at you. Larry Silverstien.
Rupert Murdoch, Frank Lowy, Lewis Eisenberg, among others.
There is nothing really new
here. It has all been written about before, but facts are piling up
and now that the big payoff has occurred on May 24,2007 and the money
trail becomes more visible, it all must be brought before the world
again, and again and again. We must not allow 9/11/01 to simply pass
into history. Those who suffered the unspeakable crimes that followed
scream for justice.
As the reign of the Bush
family comes to an end and the empire shudders and shakes, perhaps a
new Nuremberg Tribunal will mete out punishment for those responsible
for the tens of thousands who died and the suffering of millions of
others as a result of that awful Tuesday 9/11/01.
The deadly dust had not yet
settled when the drums of war began to beat. Murdoch’s pro Israel
New York paper, (New York Post, 9/12/01) headlined "Kill THE BASTARDS.
An editorial stated, "The response to this unimaginable 21st-century
Pearl Harbor should be as simple as it is swift-- kill the bastards.
A gunshot between the eyes, blow them to smithereens, poison them if
you have to. As for cities or countries that host these worms, bomb
them into basketball courts."
That kind of inciting gutter,
journalism was poured into the eyes and ears of people the world over
via the Murdoch Media Empire and there was no letup for years. The Muslim
community was astounded by the hate of Fox news and other Murdoch outlets.
Murdoch’s unabashed support of Bush and his own devotion to Israel
made him a well-known figure to those who took control of the World
Trade Center shortly before its destruction.
Larry Silverstein and Frank
Lowy, who leased the WTC property six weeks before 9/11, insisted on
the unusual insurance coverage under Terrorist acts, added to the contract.
Port Authority Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg approved the transfer of
the leases. One has to wonder how that all came down.
On March 19.2001, Lewis M.
Eisenberg released this statement, " re: Net Lease of World Trade
"In connection with the net lease of the World Trade Center, on
February 22, 2001, the Port Authority entered into an exclusive negotiating
period with Vornado Realty Trust. During this period, Port Authority
staff and its advisors, JP Morgan, Cushman & Wakefield and Milstein
Brothers Realty Advisors have worked with representatives of Vornado
to complete the contract and associated transactional documents.
In view of the lack of a final agreement at this time, the Port Authority's
Board of Commissioners has instructed staff and our advisors to engage
in exclusive negotiations with Silverstein Properties and Westfield
America to conclude a 99-year net lease transaction."
In February of 2002 Silverstein
Properties were granted a $861 million settlement from Industrial Risk
Insurers to rebuild on the site of WTC 7. Silverstein Properties investment
in WTC 7 was approximately $386 million. Silverstein Properties gained
almost half a billion. More litigation was to follow.
It is well known that Murdoch,
Silverstein and Eisenberg were members and supporters of many right
wing Zionist organizations. It is also well known that Ariel Sharon,
the man responsible for the massacre at Sabra and Shatila, and Murdoch
were friends and Sharon looked to Murdoch for support. Murdoch was also
a friend and supporter of Benjamin Netanyahu who said on the day of
the 9-11 attacks, "It's very good (for American and Israeli relations)…Well,
it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)."
As soon as I heard about
the Mossad agents being present and taking pictures across from the
twin towers on 9/11/01 I immediately thought of The Lavon affair in
1954. The Israeli secret service set up a spy ring in Egypt with the
purpose of blowing up US and British targets. The operation was code-named
"Susanah." The terrorist hits were to be blamed on the regime
of Egyptian President Gamal Abdul Nasser, with the purpose of alienating
the US and Britain from Egypt and Nasser. A bomb exploded prematurely
and the ring was discovered. Israel denied knowledge and kept the information
from its own citizens until the secret could be kept no longer.
On 9/11/01 police received
several calls from angry New Jersey residents claiming "middle-eastern"
men with a white van were videotaping the disaster with shouts of joy
and mockery. The men in the white van were stopped and arrested in East
On 9/12/01, The New York
Times reported that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed
at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating
one another afterwards. The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that
the FBI finally concluded that at least two of the detained Israelis
were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency,
and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis,
was a front operation. Two former CIA officers confirmed this, and they
noted that movers' vans are a common intelligence cover. The Israelis
were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released. If by
their own admission, "they were there to document the event"
does that not mean, to any intelligent person, that they knew in advance
what was going to happen?
After 9/11 on a PBS documentary Silverstien admitted that he made the
decision to have the building WTC 7 "pulled." meaning he planned
to have it taken down well before the disaster. Not Silverstein himself
or his daughter who normally would be in the building were present on
On May 24, 2007 an AP story
stated, "The builders of the World Trade Center site and seven
insurers have reached a $2 billion settlement that ends all outstanding
legal battles over its multibillion-dollar policy, state officials said
Gov. Eliot Spitzer and state
Insurance Superintendent Eric Dinallo announced the settlement after
leading two months of talks with the insurers, trade center developer
Larry Silverstein and the site's owner, the Port Authority of New York
and New Jersey.
The $2 billion, added to
$2.55 billion already paid out since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that
destroyed the trade center, is about $130 million less than the amount
awarded to rebuild the site after the trial in 2004.
So those connected all got
what they wanted. Silverstein got his money. He will rebuild and hold
a 99-year lease. Murdoch sold a lot of papers and got the hate Palestinians
propaganda into high gear. The Israelis got millions more of American
taxpayers dollars and as Benjamin Netanyahu said, "a lot of sympathy".
Bush became the ‘war’
President and The Commander in Chief.
No one except a seemingly
deranged man (Zacarias Moussaoui) went to jail.
Tens of thousands have died
in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the oil barons are running amuck. Murdoch’s
media still controls the minds of millions of people. Realists are wondering
are the people going to allow the 9/11 commission report to stand? Should
we not be demanding a new investigation? Do we not owe that to the children
of Iraq and the millions of other suffering people including Americans?
