The Israeli Origin of the War on Terror

October 21, 2018

How Zionist Terrorists Tricked the U.S. into Waging War for Israel

“With Sharon’s backing, terrible things were done. I am no vegetarian, and I supported and even participated in some of the assassination operations Israel carried out. But we are speaking here about mass killing for killing’s sake, to sow chaos and alarm, among civilians, too. Since when do we send donkeys carrying bombs to blow up in marketplaces?"
– Mossad officer, quoted in Ronen Bergman’s Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations

The War on Terror doctrine was launched at an Israeli conference in July 1979.  The terrorism conference/propaganda offensive was hosted by the Jonathan [Netanyahu] Institute and was organized by Menachem Begin, the self-proclaimed "Father of Terrorism," and included the most notorious Israeli masterminds of terrorism.  Just three months earlier, the Israeli military created an underground terrorist organization in Lebanon that killed thousands of people with car and truck bombs over the next four years.  The theme of the Begin/Netanyahu propaganda offensive, however, was that the Soviet Union was behind international terrorism.  Understanding this important part of Israeli history will help one grasp the true nature of the fraudulent War on Terror.  It also explains why the Zionist-controlled media is constantly fueling hostility between the United States and Russia.

The 9-11 false-flag terror operation and the War on Terror that followed in its wake will certainly go down in history as two of the most costly and evil frauds in history. The invasions and military operations that have been carried out in the aftermath of 9-11 have cost trillions of dollars and destroyed millions of lives, yet the origin of the War on Terror is not well understood by the public. 

The fact that the origin of the fraudulent War on Terror is not well known is the main reason it has been able to go on for more than 17 years with virtually no resistance from the public. I wrote a book entitled The War on Terror: The Plot to Rule the Middle East (2017) in order to try to rectify the apathy that is caused by general ignorance of the fraudulent nature of the war.

To grasp the utter fraudulence of the War on Terror it is helpful to go back to its origin in Israel when it was launched at a four-day "international propaganda offensive" at the Jonathan [Netanyahu] Institute before a select group of people in July 1979.

In the summer of 1979, a group of powerful and influential people joined to launch an international propaganda offensive to promote and exploit the issue of 'international terrorism.' The propaganda 'blitz' originated in Jerusalem. The conspiratorial network included present and former members of the Israeli and United States governments, new right politicians, high-ranking former United States and Israeli intelligence officers, the anti-détente, pro-cold war group associated with the policies of Senator Henry M. Jackson, a group of neoconservative journalists and intellectuals associated with Commentary magazine, and reactionary British and French politicians and publicists.

This 'anti-terrorist' propaganda campaign was and is being conducted in a style reminiscent of wartime 'psychological warfare' by journalists serving as conduits and spreaders of misinformation originating in Jerusalem.
Philip Paull, International Terrorism: The Propaganda War

It can be rightly said that the War on Terror was born at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism in July 1979. The conference was arranged by the Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin, the former leader of the terrorist Irgun, along with Moshe Dayan, and hosted by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father Ben-Zion at an institute called the Jonathan Institute.

Menachem Begin, who became Israel's prime minister in 1977 had a long history of terrorism, including the bombing of Jerusalem's King David Hotel in 1946.

There is very little written about the Netanyahu Institute conference on terrorism since it was not a public event but rather a kind of conspiratorial "propaganda offensive" that included "seven hundred invited foreign journalists, influential friends of Israel, and top-ranking members of the Israeli military, diplomatic, and intelligence establishment."

Four former chiefs of Israeli military intelligence participated in the conference. Shimon Peres, then head of the opposition party, also participated. George H.W. Bush, who was a presidential candidate at the time, attended and spoke on the final day of the conference.

The purpose of the conference was to launch a new construct to be promoted by the global media: the doctrine of waging war on terrorism, i.e. the War on Terror. 

The only published material I have found about this conspiratorial conference organized by Menachem Begin, the self-proclaimed "Father of Terrorism," is a master's thesis written in 1982 by Philip Paull at San Francisco State University, entitled International Terrorism: The Propaganda War. The quoted material in this article comes from this thesis.

It should be noted that the Jerusalem conference that brought us the War on Terror was in fact an Israeli "propaganda offensive" organized by the most notorious Zionist masterminds of terrorism: Menachem Begin, Moshe Dayan, and Shimon Peres, along with the heads of Israeli military intelligence. 

Among other terrorist crimes, Menachem Begin was responsible for the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946 and the massacre of the entire Palestinian village of Deir Yassin in April 1948. Moshe Dayan was minister of defense when the Israeli military attacked the defenseless USS Liberty on June 8, 1967, killing 34 crewmen and wounding 174. Both Dayan and Shimon Peres were involved in the Lavon Affair in the summer of 1954 when a group of Egyptian Jews was recruited by Israeli military intelligence to plant bombs inside American and British civilian targets in Egypt:  cinemas, libraries, and American educational centers.

The Israeli terrorists who arranged the "propaganda offensive to promote and exploit the issue of international terrorism" at the Jerusalem conference in July 1979, had certainly not changed their evil ways. Just three months before the conference, the Israeli military chief-of-staff, Rafael Eitan, had established an Israeli underground terrorist organization called the Front for the Liberation of Lebanon from Foreigners, which carried out bombing operations in Lebanon from 1979 through 1983. 

Many of these Israeli bombings involved truck and car bombs. It was toward the end of this period of Israeli terror bombings in Lebanon, in which thousands were killed, that two truck bombs struck the barracks housing "peacekeepers" of the Multinational Force in Lebanon (MNF), killing 241 U.S. Marines and 58 French soldiers on October 23, 1983. According to Caspar Weinberger, United States Secretary of Defense at the time, there is no knowledge of who carried out the bombing that resulted in the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.

Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of Defense, said there is no knowledge who carried out the bombing.  So, who did it?

Thanks to Ronen Bergman's recent book, Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations (2018), we now know that Rafael Eitan, the Israeli chief-of-staff, was running a massive terrorist bombing campaign using car and truck bombs in Lebanon at precisely the time the U.S. Marines were killed. Furthermore, according to former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, in his 1990 book By Way of Deception, Israeli intelligence knew the specific time and location of the bombing that killed the Marines but only gave general information to the Americans before the attack, which was worthless.

Paull's thesis, International Terrorism: The Propaganda War, examines how the Netanyahu Institute used misinformation to exaggerate the terrorism threat. One of the main points of the misinformation was to link terrorism to the Soviet Union. In this way the Israelis could delegitimize the Palestinian Liberation Organization in the West as a puppet of Moscow.

A key conference slogan, 'The PLO-Moscow Connection,' for example, has helped to brake the momentum of the Camp David accords. Extending the Camp David spirit would have meant a partial recognition of the PLO's legitimacy by the Begin administration. The 'Moscow-PLO Connection' denied the PLO any semblance of legitimacy labeling it a mere puppet of Moscow, 'terrorists' manipulated by the KGB.

The Jerusalem Conference also helped to revive the anti-Soviet alliance between Israel and the United States by charging the Soviets with responsibility for 'funding, training, and equipping international terrorism.'  This new charge helped keep the United States and the Soviet Union at each other's throats, thus preventing them from agreeing on a diplomatic solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East.  (Paull, p. 95)

Although the Zionist masterminds behind the War on Terror no longer blame Russia for being behind international terrorism, their reason for blaming the Soviet Union, i.e. Russia, has not changed.

As Paull wrote:

The Israeli conference organizers in turn, could use [Sen. Henry] Jackson and the Commentary group around Podhoretz to help prevent a pro-Arab tilt in Washington, keep United States armaments flowing to Israel, and most important, maintain anti-Soviet hostility in Washington. Relaxation of superpower hostility could trigger a thaw in U.S.-Soviet relations, and a settlement in the Middle East which would include the Palestinians would then be conceivable. This was a development the Begin administration wished to avoid at all costs. (Paull, p. 16)

In 1979, the arch-terrorist Menachem Begin and his fellow Likud extremists wanted to "maintain anti-Soviet hostility in Washington" in order to prevent "a settlement in the Middle East which would include the Palestinians." 

Begin's Likud party is still in power in Israel.  Today, the Likud is headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, who hosted the conspiratorial terrorism conference back in 1979. This is why the Palestinians are still locked out of any political process and why the Zionist-controlled media continues to spew anti-Russian propaganda – four decades after the War on Terror was born at the conference at the Netanyahu Institute.

The Zionist Myths We Live Under

July 11, 2018

Definition of myth
1 a : a usually traditional story of ostensibly historical events that serves to unfold part of the world view of a people or explain a practice, belief, or natural phenomenon
Source:  Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Alfred and Monika Schaefer are siblings from a German-Canadian family who grew up in Alberta, Canada. They are both currently on trial in Munich, Germany. Monika has been jailed since January 3, 2018 - held without trial - charged with Volksverhetzung, or "incitement to hatred."

Monika supposedly committed this crime when she made a video in which she describes asking her Mother questions about what she knew and saw about alleged German atrocities during World War II. Monika's essential crime is that she challenges the holocaust myth, which makes her guilty of heresy in occupied-Germany.

See: "Sorry Mom, I was wrong about the Holocaust"

Let's be clear about this, the Holocaust myth or narrative, which is taught to young students in Europe, is a very real "incitement to hatred" -- hatred for the German people. This myth, which is considered sacred and cannot be challenged, is supported by the power of the German state, which is still an occupied nation operating under the laws of the occupiers - 73 years after the war. There is still no peace treaty legally ending the war, which leaves Germany in a kind of legal limbo that keeps the occupying power in control.

Like the 9/11 myth, the Holocaust myth is the Zionist narrative that has been imposed on the world in order to gain support for the Zionist agenda. The Holocaust myth is designed to get global sympathy and support for the Zionist state of Israel. The 9/11 myth is designed to get global military support to wage war against Israel's enemies. Both have been very successful - for Israel. Israel, however, is the only one who benefits from these myths.  The rest of us, burdened by these myths, pay a very high price.

How long must we be burdened under these Zionist myths? When will it end?

Philip Zelikow, the Zionist Jewish author of the 9/11 myth (i.e. 9/11 Commission Report) said this about "public myths" in contemporary political history:

This idea of “public presumption” is akin to William McNeill’s notion of “public myth” but without the negative implication sometimes invoked by the word “myth.” Such presumptions are beliefs, 
(1) thought to be true (although not necessarily known to be true with certainty), and 
(2) shared in common within the relevant political community.
- Philip Zelikow, "
Thinking About Political History," October 15, 1998

When Zelikow says these "public myths" are beliefs shared in common within the relevant political community, he means the controlled media and politicians who duly promote and support these myths - without question. This is exactly what we have seen with the 9/11 myth in the U.S. Congress for the past 17 years. Not a single politician has dared to challenge the obvious lies of the 9/11 myth. Not one congressman calls for an end of, or even a debate about, the utterly fraudulent War on Terror, which is now the longest foreign war in U.S. history - and the most expensive!

The "relevant political community," (i.e. the Zionist-controlled media and politicians) says nothing about the abundant evidence that proves that the official 9/11 myth is nothing but a pack of lies. You could throw one hundred solid scientific proofs showing that the 9/11 myth is false but the edifice of lies would still be standing within the media's "reality" and the halls of Congress because the power behind the myth is the power behind our government. The Zionist myths will therefore persist as long as the Zionists control these fundamental elements of our nation - the media and the government.

This means that we will be burdened under these myths, the holocaust, 9/11, the Kennedy murders and their magic bullets, etc., until the Zionist power is uprooted and removed from all positions of influence in our political systems, in Germany, the United States, and elsewhere.

The Zionist myths are essential for them to control our nations. Proving that the myths are not true is not enough. The controlled media and government are obviously completely deaf to our pleas for truth and justice, and will remain so until the Zionist power is removed.

Memo to President Trump

July 9, 2018

Robert D. Steele asked me to submit a memo to President Trump, that he would get to the president about Zionist/Israeli involvement in 9/11.  The following is my memo:

To: President Donald Trump
From: Christopher Bollyn, Author of Solving 9-11: The Deception that Changed the World
Date: July 6, 2018
Subject: U.S. Middle East Policy

"We have spent $7 trillion – trillion with a T – $7 trillion in the Middle East.  You know what we have for it?  Nothing!  Nothing."
- President Donald Trump, April 28, 2018
Graphic:  Washington Post

Dear Mr. President,

As you have said very clearly, the United States is bogged down in a costly quagmire in the Middle East, engaged in covert military operations in countries where there is no real U.S. interest. We have gained nothing from 17 years of war in which untold thousands have been killed or maimed and entire nations have been devastated.  Our Middle East policy is disastrous and must be changed. If we don't change our policy we can only expect more of the same – thousands more dead, millions more refugees, trillions more wasted.

Why are Americans being sent to wars where there is no U.S. national interest? Whose interest is being served by these military interventions? The American people have been led to believe that the War on Terror is a good thing, while our military operations leave utterly destroyed cities and infrastructure in their wake. U.S. military intervention has contributed to a humanitarian crisis across the region and beyond. The wars have created millions of refugees who have become a burden to other countries. If the War on Terror is a good thing, why has it caused so much suffering and chaos?

In order to correct our policy we need to understand who got us into this mess in the first place. The 9/11 terror atrocity and War on Terror plots were both conceived by Israeli military intelligence in the 1970s under the leadership of Menachem Begin, the self-proclaimed "Father of Terrorism" and founder of the Likud party who became prime minister in 1977.  The War on Terror doctrine was rolled out in a "propaganda offensive" in July 1979 at a Netanyahu Institute conference in Jerusalem. The Israeli trick was to get the U.S. military to neutralize and fragment its enemies, most notably Iraq and Syria, under the pretext of fighting terrorism. Since 1979, this devious plan has been openly promoted by Benjamin Netanyahu.  9/11 was a false-flag operation designed to kick-start the long-planned War on Terror. On 9/11, War on Terror proponent Netanyahu told the New York Timesthat the terror atrocity was "very good" for U.S.-Israeli relations.

The Israelis have a long history of using false-flag terrorism against the United States:

·         1954 July – The Lavon Affair:  Israeli agents place bombs in U.S. and British libraries and institutions in Egypt in a false-flag operation meant to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood. 

·         1967 June – Israeli aircraft and ships attack the defenseless USS Liberty, killing 34 and wounding 171, with the intention of sinking the ship – with no survivors – and the blame being assigned to Egypt. 

·         1983 October – A truck bomb kills 241 Marines in their barracks in Beirut. Former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky says Mossad knew the details of the truck, the time, and location of the bombing, but only gave a general warning to the Americans. A nebulous "Islamic Jihad" group is blamed; Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger says U.S. has no knowledge about who really did the bombing.

·         1986 February – Mossad plants a radio relay device in an apartment in Tripoli, Libya, to send fake messages that appear to be coming from the Libyan government; U.S. intelligence is successfully tricked and President Reagan orders bombing of Libya based on Mossad's fake messages.

1978 – Israeli agent Arnon Milchan's first film features a Boeing 747 crashing into the PanAm building.

1979 July – Netanyahu Institute hosts conference on terrorism calling for U.S. military intervention in Middle East.

1979 – Isser Harel, founding chief of Israeli intelligence, predicts 9/11 attacks in New York City.

1982 February – Israeli Likud strategist Oded Yinon publishes plan (in Hebrew) calling for the “dissolution of Syria and Iraq" and Balkanization of all Arab states.

1983 – Israel creates foe for War on Terror: Under Ehud Barak, Israeli military intelligence (AMAN) begins arming and training Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's anti-Western Hezb-i-Islami terrorists in Pakistan, including Osama bin Laden.

1987 – Two of Isser Harel’s senior Mossad agents, Avraham Shalom Bendor and Zvi Malkin, obtain security contract for World Trade Center; Port Authority cancels contract when their criminal history is discovered.

1990 – Rejected by Port Authority due to criminal conviction in Israel, Mossad's Shalom Bendor goes to work for Jules Kroll.

1993 February – Zionists manage prosecution of WTC bombing: Israeli-American Michael Chertoff, U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, plays key role in prosecution. Zionist Judge Michael Mukasey presides over case against "Blind Sheikh." FBI informant Emad Salem is paid one million dollars for his testimony. Media leads public to believe that Muslims want to destroy the Twin Towers.

1993 – After first WTC bombing Kroll Associates gets security contract for the Port Authority and the WTC.

1994 – After losing Saudi and Pakistani support, the Israeli-trained "remainder of Hezb-i-Islami merges into al-Qaeda and the Taliban."

1998 December – Philip Zelikow’s Catastrophic Terrorism Study Group publishes report "Imagining Transforming Event" in Foreign Affairs(CFR). Co-authors Ashton Carter and John Deutch work for Global Technology Partners, an exclusive affiliate of Rothschild N.A.

2000 September – A Neo-Con group, Project for the New American Century (PNAC) suggests that "a catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor" may be necessary to facilitate "the process of transformation" they call for in U.S. military policy.

2001 – Israeli Mossad company ICTS controls security screening at U.S. airports on 9/11. Directors include Yair Shamir, son of notorious Israeli terrorist and assassination chief Yitzhak Shamir.

2001 – Israeli intelligence creates false histories for alleged hijackers. Israeli spies posing as "art students" live near hijacker patsies. Duplicate documents are used to create false histories, standard procedure for Mossad false-flag operations.

2001 – Ronald Lauder manages Gov. Pataki’s privatization scheme which includes WTC property. Lauder funds Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy at Mossad center (IDC) where Israeli Major General Daniel Rothschild heads Institute for Policy and Strategy.

2001 July 24 – Larry Silverstein gets lease for World Trade Center. Silverstein obtains lease thru fellow Zionist agent Lew Eisenberg, chairman of the Port Authority. Silverstein and Eisenberg are both members of UJA board, major Zionist fundraising organization.  Since 1996, Silverstein maintains very close contact with Netanyahu; every Sunday afternoon Netanyahu calls Silverstein.

2001 September 11 – Ehud Olmert, Israel’s deputy prime minister, is on an unreported visit in New York City. Why is it kept secret? While all civilian planes are grounded, at 4:11 p.m. on 9/11 an El Al Boeing 747 takes off from JFK bound for Tel Aviv. The flight is authorized by the direct intervention of the U.S. Department of Defense.

9/11 – Alex Brown, a firm with ties to Israeli military intelligence and Yair Shamir’s company Scitex bought many of the suspicious "put" options. "Buzzy" Krongard, executive director of the CIA, headed AB until 1998. His wife works for Rothschild Asset Management.

9/11 – Israeli government receives the names of 4,000 Israelis believed to be in the area of the WTC or Pentagon on 9/11. Odigo, an Israeli messaging company, is used to send warning several hours before attacks. Four Israelis die at WTC.

9/11 – Five Israelis working for Urban Moving Systems are arrested on 9/11 after being seen photographing and celebrating the attack on the WTC. The fake moving company is later found to be a front for the Mossad. Two of the Israelis are known Mossad agents.

9/11 – Israeli military chief Ehud Barak interprets 9/11 on BBC World and Sky News networks in London, blaming Osama bin Laden and calling for U.S. to "launch an operational, concrete, war against terror." Barak is Netanyahu's commander in the Sayeret Matkal, a covert commando force of Israeli military intelligence. Other Israeli commandos (e.g. Daniel Lewin) are involved in 9/11.

9/11 – Netanyahu praises 9/11 atrocity to New York Times: “It's very good… it will generate immediate sympathy.” In 2008, he says in Israel: "We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq."

9/11 – An Israeli son of the Mossad controls 9-11 investigation. Attorney General John Ashcroft puts Israeli dual-national Michael Chertoff in charge of FBI investigation. “For day-to-day decisions, Chertoff has the last word.” Destruction of crucial evidence begins immediately. FBI oversees confiscation of evidence and non-investigation.

9/11 – Two Zionist-owned junkyards manage hasty destruction of evidence. To allow larger ships bound for Asia to load at Hugo Neu the Claremont Channel has been dredged prior to 9/11. Hugo Neu creates a global trading division in 1999, headed by two veteran ferrous metal traders from Marc Rich and Glencore AG in Switzerland. Steel evidence is shipped to Asia although scrap iron price is at the lowest level in 50 years.

Post 9/11 – Zionist with conflict of interest presides over 9/11 lawsuit:  Judge Alvin Hellerstein manages 9-11 tort litigation, while his son is lawyer in Israel with firm that represents ICTS, key defendant in 9/11 litigation. Hellerstein dismisses ICTS and every 9/11 case is settled out of court.

Post 9/11 – Zionists manage compensation funds: Kenneth Feinberg and Sheila Birnbaum oversee compensation settlements for 9/11 families. Not a single case goes to trial. No 9/11 discovery occurs in court.

2003 March – Zionists control 9/11 myth:  Appointed director of 9/11 Commission, Philip Zelikow frames the agenda and decides what evidence the commission sees. A specialist in "public myths," Zelikow comes to commission with complete outline of report – before staff even begins working.

Until 2011 – Israelis construct 9/11 memorial and legacy: WTC memorial is designed by Israeli Michael Arad, son of Moshe Arad, former Israeli ambassador to the United States.

Until today – Controlled media ignores crucial 9/11 questions and evidence. Media pushes false narrative about 9/11 and the War on Terror while ignoring evidence that disproves the official myth.

My Only Question about the 9/11 Narrative: Is it True – or False?

May 3, 2018

False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil. 
- Socrates

A detainee in Guantanamo Bay called Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), who is supposedly "the mastermind" of the terror attacks of 9/11, is now after many years back in the news. There have been recent reports that he may have suffered brain damage during interrogation sessions at a CIA black-site in Poland, where the detainee was held after being arrested in Pakistan in March 2003. So, fifteen years after he was abused during interrogation, the military is only now trying to determine if his brain has been damaged?

The detainee said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11

In an April 30, 2018, article entitled "Lawyers: Scan suggests alleged 9/11 plotter suffered head injury in CIA custody," Carol Rosenberg of the Miami Herald (McClatchy) writes from Guantanamo, Cuba, that brain scans conducted on the man said to be Khalid Sheik Mohammed, accused of orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, show damage consistent with abuse he might have suffered in CIA custody.

"You've heard endlessly about waterboarding," former Vice President Dick Cheney said at a speech in 2009 at the American Enterprise Institute. "It happened to three terrorists. One of them was Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, who has also boasted about his beheading of Daniel Pearl."


In 2007, the detainee said to be KSM supposedly confessed to being the mastermind of 9/11:

I was the Operational Director for Sheikh Usama Bin Laden for the organizing, planning, follow-up, and execution of the 9/11 Operation… I was the Military Operational Commander for all foreign operations around the world…

I was Emir (i.e., commander) of Beit Al Shuhada (i.e., the Martyrs' House) in the state of Kandahar, Afghanistan, which housed the 9/11 hijackers. There I was responsible for their training and readiness for the execution of the 9/11 Operation. Also, I hereby admit and affirm without duress that I was a responsible participant, principal planner, trainer, financier (via the Military Council Treasury), executor, and/or a personal participant in the following;

I was responsible for the 1993 World Trade Center Operation.

I was responsible for the 9/11 Operation, from A to Z.
- Supposed confession of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, read by a Personal Representative in a closed-door hearing in Guantánamo Bay, March 10, 2007, "Verbatim Transcript of Combatant Status Review Tribunal Hearing for ISN 10024"

This is supposedly a confession read by a third person on behalf of a detainee who obviously does not speak English very well and who does not even identify himself in the process. He is simply called Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, although he is neither identified nor sworn in during the hearing. A further contradiction is that KSM was reported to have been killed in Pakistan in September 2002. The real KSM also graduated from college in North Carolina with an engineering degree, which suggests that he would have better English skills than the unidentified detainee said to be "the mastermind" of 9/11.

Photographs of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed


The evidence suggests that the person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is actually someone else, perhaps an Ahmed Qudus (also Qadus) who was arrested in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, in March 2003. Faced with so many contradictions in the reports about KSM, in March 2007 I called the engineering faculty of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University where KSM earned his degree in mechanical engineering in the 1980s.

The detainee called KSM (left) and Ahmed Qadus (right) both in March 2003 when KSM was reported to have been arrested at the Qadus home in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The Qadus family told the Guardian that only Ahmed was arrested and taken away from their home. Is the detainee called KSM really Qadus?

David E. Klett, a retired professor of thermodynamics, had the real KSM in several of his classes. Asked about the photos of the person said to be the terror mastermind KSM, Klett said, "I did not recognize that person. I never saw that face before."

There are many questions about this detainee called Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and how he has been handled. Is he really KSM? Is he really the mastermind of 9/11? If so, why has he not been put on trial after 15 years in U.S. custody? Why is he kept incommunicado in Cuba?


Above and beyond these questions, however, is one we need to ask about this detainee and his supposed role in 9/11: Is it true, or is it false? Either the detainee said to be KSM is in fact the mastermind of 9/11, or he is not. This needs to be determined and proven.

If it is true, why has he not been put on trial after 15 years? If he is indeed the mastermind of 9/11, why has he not been properly interrogated to find out how the terror attacks were planned and carried out? Why is he being held in a kind of legal limbo at a military base in Cuba? Don't we deserve to know more about the person who is supposedly behind the crimes of 9/11?

The person said to be Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, is like a linchpin in the whole sordid saga of 9/11. Either he is who they say he is, or he is not. Likewise, by extension, either the official 9/11 saga is true – or it is false.

This is much more than an academic exercise. This is nothing less than the most important historical and political question of our time. If the official narrative about 9/11 is true, why has the government failed to prove or prosecute their case after more than 16 years? Why has there been no criminal investigation? Why was crucial evidence from the World Trade Center destroyed starting on the first day?

If, on the other hand, the official story is false, it means we have been deceived from the very beginning and have been tricked into fighting numerous wars across the Middle East under the pretext of waging the Global War on Terror. According to President Trump, these wars have cost the U.S. some $7 trillion in 17 years. 


Someone at the FBI, or elsewhere in government, needed to make sure that al Qaeda members were left in place – either to perpetrate the attacks or to take the blame for them afterwards.
- Michael Ruppert, Crossing the Rubicon, 2004

Rather than getting a blue-ribbon investigation of 9/11, we were given a prepared narrative blaming a nebulous group called al Qaeda, supposedly headed by a wealthy Saudi named Osama bin Laden. Before the dust had even settled in New York City the blame was being assigned to bin Laden on BBC World and Sky television by Ehud Barak, the former prime minister of Israel. Barak, conveniently in London, blamed bin Laden and said it was time for the U.S. to begin an "operational war against terrorism." While the al Qaeda connection to 9/11 has never been proven, it has been the focus of the official narrative from the beginning.

How was this done? Over a period of years prior to 9/11 a whole host of terrorist bombings were blamed on al Qaeda. The detainee called KSM supposedly confessed to 29 of them, going back to the first bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993. The 19 alleged hijackers were like actors on a stage, positioned and prepared to take the blame for the 9/11 crimes. If you are willing to accept that Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda carried out 9/11, without seeing any evidence to prove the allegations, you can probably be misled with more unproven details connecting this suspect with this person or event. It then becomes a matter of missing the forest for the trees. This is the purpose of all the noise, discussion, and leaks about who knew what when about the 19 hijackers and their plot.

The alleged Arab hijackers were monitored by cells of Israeli "art student" spies.

If, however, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is not the real mastermind of 9/11 the question remains: who is behind the positioning and preparation of the narrative about the 19 alleged hijackers? Who was the hidden hand preparing the Arabs to take the blame for the crime? Was this the real reason the Israeli "art students" lived near the alleged hijackers?

Putting the blame on the targeted foe is the whole purpose of false-flag terrorism, but the deception only succeeds with an audience who is willing to accept an unproven allegation as true. The false narrative fails as soon as one looks for proof and finds there is none. This is exactly what we find with the official narrative of 9/11: volumes of allegations, but no solid evidence.  

So, we must ask: Is it true, or is it false?
