The World Trade Center Attacks in Perspective

FBI informant, Emad A. Salem.

On October 27, 1993 the New York Times revealed that the FBI were in a much better position than previously known regarding events leading up to that year’s February 26 bombing of the World Trade Center’s north tower.1 The story broke thanks to the hundreds of hours of secret recordings made by FBI informer Emad A. Salem of conversations he had with FBI personnel.

Emad A. Salem, a former lieutenant colonel in the Egyptian army, arrived in the United States in 1988 and soon began working for the FBI as an informant.2 Initially Salem was assigned the task of infiltrating the Russian Mafia in New York City, focusing on the crime organization’s links to the KGB.3 In mid-June of 1992 Salem had penetrated the group responsible for the bombing of the World Trade Center. The group was having difficulties with securing remote bomb detonators (the need for more than one detonator was due to the terrorist’s plans to bomb other targets besides the World Trade Center), so Salem offered to build the bombs for them. Interestingly, not only was the bomb for the World Trade Center built by Salem, but built under the supervision of the FBI and the D.A., according to tape recordings Salem made secretly of conversations between him and his FBI handlers:

"Salem: Okay. Alright. I don't think it was. If that's what you think guys, fine, but I don't think that because we was start already building the bomb which is went off in the World Trade Center. It was built by supervising supervision from the Bureau and the D.A. and we was all informed about it and we know that the bomb start to be built. By who? By your confidential informant. What a wonderful, great case!

Anticev: Well."4

Anticev is FBI Special Agent John Anticev, one of Salem’s Bureau contacts before and after the WTC bombing. Anticev’s response of "Well" is confirmation that what Salem has just said in reference to the bomb being a product of the FBI is true.5

This is quite an eye raising admission; that the bomb that tore the North Tower’s basement apart was built by the FBI! Hold on. Here is where the story raises both eyebrows. The FBI had agreed to substitute harmless powder in the bomb, but then changed their minds and provided a real bomb, and then failed to follow the terrorists and catch them in the act of attempting to destroy the North Tower:

"He requested to meet me in the hotel," Mr. Salem says of the supervisor. "He requested to make me to testify and if he didn't push for that, we'll be going building the bomb with a phony powder and grabbing the people who was involved in it. But since you, we didn't do that."6

The tapes even recount that Salem had given the FBI the day and time for the delivery of the bomb:

"You were informed. Everything is ready. The day and the time. Boom. Lock them up and that's that. That's why I feel so bad."7

However there’s more that Salem claims he told the FBI about the bombing. He provided the actual location of the bombing:

"I told you so, that this is one of the targets," Mr. Salem says. "You forgot. You have your papers. Go back to it. World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Grand Central. Times Square."8

"I looked over my notes," one of the agents, John Anticev, says. "I didn't see anything about a target." To this, Detective Napoli, says: "I was there also. I don't remember you saying target."9

Now the FBI never contradicted Salem in the tapes saying he didn’t provide them with the day and time for the delivery of the bomb to the terrorists, just the targets. Even if Salem was confused about providing the targets to the FBI, the fact remains that the FBI did not follow the terrorists to the World Trade Center's north tower on February 26th when they knew that the terrorists were in the possession of a real bomb. A bomb the FBI gave the terrorists! Why?

The Reagan and Bush I administrations wanted Congress to pass anti-terror legislation with unconstitutional provisions that included the "resurrection of guilt by association, association as grounds for exclusion or deportation, the ban on supporting lawful activities of groups labeled terrorist, the use of secret evidence, and the empowerment of the Secretary of State to designate groups as terrorist organizations, without judicial or congressional review."10 The legislation languished in Congress, with both Democrat and Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee questioning the need for such drastic legislation.11 Not even the 1993 WTC bombing was a good enough reason to convince Congress to pass the ‘anti-terror’ legislation (only six were killed). However the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995 changed the political atmosphere on this issue (168 were killed). The next year the anti-terror legislation became law.

In the Murrah Federal Building bombing incident it is known that there were two other bombs located in the building that were larger than the initial bomb that exploded. This news was suppressed by the national media, but managed to leak out through the local media in Oklahoma City.12 The unexploded bombs are not to be confused with the TOW antitank missile that was revealed seven years after the incident to have been found during the Murrah Federal Building rescue operations.13 Since the two bombs found were said by the authorities to be larger than the first that exploded, then one of those bombs could not have been a TOW missile, since a TOW missile would not come anywhere close to destroying one-third of the Murrah Federal Building. Furthermore, the Oklahoma City media reported authorities saying two bombs larger than the first were found, not one bomb with less destructive power than the bomb that went off. The FBI also refused the testimonies of 22 eyewitnesses that contradicted the official narrative of the Oklahoma City bombing.14

What we have then beginning in the early 1990s is a pattern of FBI malfeasance in both the 1993 WTC bombing and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The question is how far does this malfeasance go? Could the bombings actually have been FBI operations carried out by proxy groups? What would be the motive for such actions? The ramming through of unconstitutional ‘anti-terror’ legislation by Congress is in itself not an answer. If elements within the FBI were being used to set off bombs in the 1990s to compel Congress into passing anti-terror legislation, the same question still stands: Why?

The answer lies in what happened in 1991. Remember that year? 1991 should bring immediately to mind a pivotal event from that year: the supposed collapse of the USSR. Why do I say supposed? Because the USSR did not collapse in December 1991, it fractured itself for strategic deception purposes only. The USSR is still around, though no one talks about it.15 That is why ‘former’ communists continue to be ‘elected’ as the chief executives of the ‘former’ Soviet republics, including ex-KGB officer Vladimir Putin. 

The fraudulent ‘collapse’ of the USSR (and East Bloc) couldn't have been pulled off until both political parties in the United States (and political parties elsewhere in the West) were co-opted by Marxists, which explains why verification of the ‘collapse’ was never undertaken by the West, such verification being (1) a natural administrative procedure (since the USSR wasn’t occupied by Western military forces); and (2) necessary for the survival of the West. Recall President Reagan's favorite phrase, "Trust, but verify". 

It gets worse--the ‘freed’ Soviets and West also never (1) de-Communized the Soviet Armed Forces of its Communist Party officer corps, which was 90% officered by Communist Party members; and (2) arrested/de-mobilized the five million vigilantes that assisted the Soviet Union's Ministry of the Interior and police control the populations of the cities during the period of ‘Perestroika’ (1986-1991)!

There can be no collapse of the USSR (or East Bloc nations) without...

Verification, De-Communization and De-mobilization.

The West never verified the collapse of the USSR because no collapse occurred, since if a real collapse had occurred the West would have verified it, since the survival of the West depends on verification. Conversely, this proves that the political parties of the West were co-opted by Marxists long before the fraudulent collapse of the USSR, since the survival of the West depends on verification.

The 1993 WTC bombing, the bombings of the American embassies in Africa in 1998, the 2000 USS Cole bombing in Yemen and finally the 9/11 attacks were all false-flag operations setting up the stage for the ‘War on Terror’, an operation being carried out by the Marxist co-opted governments of the West in alliance with the USSR and other Communist nations, the purpose being to (1) destroy the prominence of the West in the eyes of the world, where the West is seen (i) invading nations without cause; (ii) causing chaos around the globe; and (iii) killing over one-million civilians and boasting of torture; (2) close off non-Russian supplies of oil for export, thereby increasing the price of oil, the higher price allowing oil exporting Russia to maintain economic stability while she modernizes and increases her military forces; (3) destroy the United States Armed Forces via the never-ending ‘War on Terror’; the ultimate purpose of the aforementioned to (4) bring about the demise of the United States in the world, opening up a political void to be filled by a new pan-national entity composed of Europe and Russia (replacing the European Union), a union ‘From the Atlantic to Vladivostok’;16 which will (5) see the end of NATO.

I now direct the reader’s attention back to FBI Special Agent John Anticev. Due to his smashing performance five years earlier in the 1993 WTC bombing incident, Anticev was assigned to investigate the 1998 American embassy bombings in Africa!17
