APPENDIX B2

OBSTRUCTION OF INVESTIGATIONS
PRIOR TO 9/11

And Reasons to Doubt the Official
Legend of Osama Bin Ladin

The consistent high-level obstruction of U.S. counterterror field investigations prior to September 11, which might have uncovered the plot before its execution.

(The "B"-Series is in development.  Please see Updates.)

For now we are working through the following material:

...allegations of blocked investigations prior to 9/11... 
• Has Someone Been Sitting on the FBI? (Nov 2001)
Greg Palast on BBC Newsnight reveals incoming Bush Administration issued Jan 2001 order to "back off" on investigations of Saudi and Bin Laden family funding of terror networks. 
(View extract of a sample 199i document from Clinton era)
• Interview with Palast on FBI obstruction & Florida election 
• FBI told to "Back Off" Bin Laden Family in Jan 2001 
• John O'Neill: timeline and sources (background story here)  After claiming oil was the motive behind high-level obstruction of FBI terror investigations, top Osama hunter John O'Neill resigned, took a job as WTC security chief, and died on his second day in the office (Sep 11, 2001)
• David Schippers: Former Clinton impeachment attorney alleges government obstructed FBI's pre-9/11 efforts (Oct 2001)

• "In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper—either here in the United States or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere—that mentioned any aspect of the Sept. 11 plot." -- FBI Director Robert Mueller, at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, April 19, 2002, on evidence linking the 19 alleged hijackers to the Sept. 11 attacks. Question: How does this square with the certainty about hijacker identities, let alone the many stories of advance warnings and near-misses that could have stopped them?

• John Roberts: retired FBI Internal Affairs chief, who " is not permitted to discuss the Edmonds case," says he found cases since Sept. 11 where people were involved in misconduct and were not reprimanded but promoted ("Lost In Translation," CBS, Aug 2004)
• Long list of promotions of FBI and other officials responsible for pre-9/11 obstruction 
• Robert Wright: FBI muzzles agent Robert Wright, who claims he could have stopped 9/11 (LA Weekly, Aug 2002) 
• FBI still refuses to release Robert Wright whistleblower charges (Mar 2003)
• Robert Wright timeline
• Steve Butler: Air Force Colonel disciplined for saying Bush had prior knowledge of 9/11 (June 2002)
• Sibel Edmonds: Ashcroft "retroactively classifies" (!) revelations "...even basic facts that have been posted on websites and discussed openly in meetings with members of Congress for two years. The Department of Justice also invoked the seldom-used ''state secrets" privilege to silence Edmonds in court..." 
• Indira Singh: breaking the PTECH scandal (Dec 2002)
• "FBI shuts down investigation into Boston terror cell."
• Sarshar Behrouz: FBI translator says FBI had Apr 2001 tip of coming suicide attacks - not pursued (Apr 2004)
• Whistle-blowing said to be factor in FBI firing of translator Edmonds (NYT, July 29, 2004)
• Edmonds claims FBI knew of 9/11 plans in April 2001, cites racketeering and criminal conspiracy (Aug 2004)

...material questioning official legends about Osama Bin Ladin and al-Qaeda... 
• Who is Osama Bin Laden? by Michel Chossudovsky
• Review of Dollars for Terror - The United States and Islam by Carol Brouillet
• When Osama Bin Ladin was Tim Osman by J. Orlin Grabbe (How Osama went on a weapons shopping tour of U.S. bases in the mid-1980s)
• Bin Ladin in the Balkans (news archive, TENC)
• CIA Met Bin Ladin in Dubai in July 2001?! (Translation of the Le Figaro report of Oct 2001 - CIA denies)
(news archive, TENC)
• CIA Met Bin Ladin in Dubai in July 2001?! (Translation of the Le Figaro report of Oct 2001 - CIA denies)
• CBS reports Osama was in Pakistani military hospital for dialysis treatments on the evening of Sept. 10 (Jan 2002)
• In Pakistan newspaper interview, Bin-Ladin claims he had nothing to to do with the attacks (Ummat, Oct 2001) - or is this a fake?
• Was the Bin Ladin "confession video" a fake? (Nov 2001)

• Mystery of Ali Mohamed, convicted al-Qaeda operative, U.S. sergeant and probable U.S. army intelligence agent by Xymphora - a typical story?

On November 19, 2004, the "Justice for 9/11" Steering Committee submitted a Citizens' Complaint and Petition to the offices of the Attorney General of New York State, Eliot Spitzer, citing probable cause for an independent grand jury investigation to examine unsolved crimes committed in connection with the events of September 11, 2001. We are publishing the complete Complaint and Petition online in this space as a living, growing document. 

Nine members of September 11 families, Ground Zero first responders, and citizens of New York have signed on as the first complainants. We call on citizens to support this action, to initiate similar actions in other states, and to sign the online petition of solidarity.
