This came to me in an email from a colleague:
It’s one of those times when an innocuous comment in an unrelated news
report triggers a revelation.
In the article at http://afrocubaweb.com/news/israelispying.htm there is
the following paragraph:
“To make the situation worse, a private security company called ICTS,
owned by an Israeli, Ezra Harel, and registered in the Netherlands, was
employed at Charles de Gaulle airport to screen passengers boarding US
planes. Most of its personnel are ex-Shin Bet officers. The company
covers security at Boston’s Logan airport, where the American Airlines
plane came down after flight attendants and passengers overpowered Reid.”
The point of the article was that ICTS knew shoe bomber Richard Reid was
dangerous, but allowed him on board a flight from Tel Aviv to Paris.
Maybe they did and maybe they didn’t. But the idea that an Israeli owned
company had inside access to the airport used to launch an abortive
terror attack brought to mind the strange message Odigo Systems, another
Israeli owned company with offices near the World Trade Towers, received
that http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/9-11_warnings_odigo.html warned
of the impending attacks before the hijacked planes had even left the
So, I went back to another story that had surfaced briefly, reported at
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=26626 about how
at least one hijacker had smuggled a GUN aboard one of the hijacked
planes. Even prior to 9-11, getting a gun on board a passenger plane
represented a serious lapse of security. I wondered why this story of a
gun was being concealed behind talk of box cutters and screwdrivers.
Then I went back to the http://afrocubaweb.com/news/israelispying.htm
first article and its mention that ICTS handled security at Logan International Airport, from which two of the 9-11 hijacked planes had departed.
Sure enough, a visit to ICTS’ own web site confirms that ICTS is in fact an Israeli owned company, and that it sells services to every airport from which the hijacked planes operated, including security, sometimes through wholly owned subsidiaries like
Huntleigh USA Corporation.
It has been suggested that the incredible feat of hijacking four
aircraft without a single arrest at the gate would require the resources
of a nation-state. This is even more true with the revelation that at
least one gun had managed to be aboard a hijacked plane. One company had
automatic inside access to all of the airports from which hijacked
planes departed on 9-11, and to the airports used by Richard Reid, the
shoe bomber. An Israeli company. One that Mossad agents could easily
find employment with without the management knowing who they were or
what their purpose really was.
But one thing is clear. By virtue of the Odigo warning, someone knew
enough about the planned attacks to warn Odigo before the planes had
even departed the airport gates, yet they did not call the Israeli
security company at the airports which could have stopped the flights
Think about that one for a while.
Hours before the House version of the first Patriot Act went to a vote,
“technical corrections” were inserted into the body of the legislation
whereby foreign security companies such as ICTS-International would be
immune from lawsuits related to the events of 9/11. Talk about not being
available for deposition! This “Patriot” act legislative sleight of hand
occurred before the inception of the 9/11 Commission when Fearless
Leader George W. Bush was still resisting the very IDEA of an
investigation into 9/11. Hence, in the face of an institutional
cover-up, citizens were denied the possibility of a discovery process
which is normally afforded to litigants. Without such discovery process,
ICTS-International would never be compelled by a court of law to give
testimony and show evidence related to the missing airport video
surveillance tapes of 9/11 or any other aspect of security measures in
place on 9/11. [rense.com]
“Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell
you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.”
US official quoted in Carl Cameron’s Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring.
“Investigators within the DEA, INS and FBI have all told Fox News that
to pursue or even suggest Israeli spying … is considered career suicide.”
Carl Cameron, as quoted in The
Spies Who Came In From The Art Sale
“While I agree with you, if I say anything about US geopolitical
interests with Israel, I might as well clean off my desk.”
