Shilling the Shell Game
James talked in the post below this one about Kevin Barrett's nutty comments about Hezbollah and Hamas being heroes, in the context of Barrett's endorsement (with reservations) of The Shell Game. Barrett mentioned some other criticism of Alten's book, and for the fun of it, I checked out the site he referenced. Wow, it's almost enough to make me feel sorry for a fruitcake like Alten.
I am glad that you believe Israeli agents were following the hijackers before 9-11, but I am surprised that you don’t seem to be aware of the Israeli spies high-fiving it while taping the attacks themselves (google “dancing Israeli spies”) which pretty much proves they had foreknowledge and were actually probably taping the results of their own efforts while working for the Mossad— as in it is very likely that they planted the explosives themselves in the World Trade Center buildings 1, 2 and 7 (which was not even hit by a jet)– all buildings owned by Larry Silverstein, who is best friends with super Zionist hawk Netanyahu— one of the writers of PNAC (Project for New American Century— the blueprint for 9-11 and rolling out the war on the Middle East, starting with Iraq and Afghanistan as called for in this document which was based on “A Clean Break” which was based on “The Wolfowitz Doctrine”). As you can probably see by now, I firmly believe that the Israelis and Israeli-Americans, such as Silverstein, such as Netanyahu, such as Wolfowitz, such as Perle, and their colleagues actually orchestrated 9-11. In their PNAC doctrine, they stated that they needed a “Pearl Harbor-style event” to happen to start on the empire building, and so that was 9-11.
But even if the Israeli agents were just “following” the hijackers as you believe, then doesn’t that make them complicit collaborators? Or at the very least, why didn’t they directly tell authorities which could have prevented 9-11 from happening? Please don’t tell me they wanted not to reveal that they were Israeli spies! Surely there could be a way around that! At the very least, like for instance when the Israeli company Odigo (actually a front for the Mossad) headquartered in WTC got the warnings that there was going to be a hit— couldn’t any of the Mossad agents who knew what was about to happen have at least anonymously called into the building authorities and the NYC police and NY fire dept to warn people of a bomb or something (instead of just calling their own pals at Odigo)?
Lotsa fish in that barrel, let me get my shotgun! To take the easy ones first, Benjamin Netanyahu was not one of the writers of PNAC; it would be strange indeed for an Israeli politician to be writing for the Project for a New American Century. PNAC did not say they needed a "Pearl Harbor-style event"; they said that their goals would have to be achieved over a period of time absent a new Pearl Harbor.
Odigo was not headquartered in the WTC. The warning they received was sent to two Israeli employees of the company, and was not anywhere near as specific as is commonly claimed:
Diamandis today in a telephone interview also said the warning message did not identify the World Trade Center as the attack target. Diamandis declined to reveal any other information contained in the message, including whether the warning named the targets for the attack.
"Providing more details would only lead to more conjecture," he said.
He did confirm that soon after the terrorist attacks on New York, the Odigo employees notified their management, who contacted Israeli security services. In turn, the FBI was informed of the instant-message warning.
Note as well the comments on Barrett's post, which contain the usual "Israelophobia" from the anti-semitic wing of the Troofers:
what kind of neocons? if they are of the Bush/Cheney/Rice/Rumsfeld ilk only and not of the Zakheim/Zelikow/Feith/Netanyahu ilk, then i have no desire to read this book.
Wendy Campbell at the above URL engages in an email exchange with anti-Semitic, Zionist shill Steve Alten and gets him to reveal his True Shillness, and who he is really working for (Israel and their American “fifth column”). I know the other day I was being all nice and mellow, and saying how we should not overly concentrate on calling out the shills, but some people are so damn transparent that you could pretty much spray paint “SHILL” on their front lawns, and do so with little guilt or doubt.
A democracy that allows it's military to censor the news or anything else ? Sorry, but Israel is a bandit-nation.
Like I say, it's hard not to feel a little sorry for Alten, but then again he is a nutcase himself.
