Many of you will be aware that I have long questioned not only the official version of 9/11, a story with more imponderables than the Warren Report, but also the "official alternative" view of the 9/11 truth movement. According to that view, the "reigning alternative" view, at the deepest level of the plot, some rogue element within the US government is usually cited as implicated in the plot, either in its planning or execution, or by allowing a plot others had hatched to go forward as a means of pursuing geopolitical goals in the Middle East and central Asia. For the 9/11 truthers, the deeper level is revealed by signatures of controlled demolitions in the twin towers, or, in some versions, by the deployment of "nanothermite."

I have not subscribed completely to this view, as there are some classes of evidence that, to my mind, are simply not adequately explained by any controlled demolition hypothesis, namely, what Dr. Judy Wood has referred to as "the toasted cars," the "Dustification" of the towers, and "the jumpers," i.e., the people seemingly hurling themselves out of the towers to their deaths. While I have a number of problems as well with aspects of Dr. Wood's presentation and some massive questions concerning her book, I do think that the case for directed energy weaponry in the case of the Twin towers has not been adequately examined. Indeed, when 9/11 occurred, I was - as I was as a child when President Kennedy was murdered - home, and watched it happened. My immediate reaction then was that the collapse of the towers was just not right, and was not the signature of an ordinary controlled demolition. That was, and remains, my opinion.

The possibility, then, of the use of such an extraordinary technology has thus always implied for me the existence of a third layer to the plot, one unknown to the other two(whatever those other two were). And that third layer always for me seemed to be possibly linked to one of the three countries whose intelligence services attempted to warn the USA of something dire about to transpire. Such intelligence warnings indicate, that at least at some level, these nations had knowledge of some sort of the plot. Those nations whose services warned the USA of immanent danger were Russia, Israel, and Germany.

At the visceral level, I have a great deal of difficulty believing that any of these three countries or their militaries or intelligence services would be involved in such a plot, so for me this always left the possibility that one was faced with a truly rogue group, with some powerful penetration into the intelligence networks of those countries, and with some powerful toys and, by implication, very deep pockets, an entity that might not even be a nation-state in the conventional sense at all.

Now, interestingly enough, there is this report from Mike Ruppert:

9/11 Attacks: Criminal Foreknowledge and Insider Trading lead directly to the CIA's Highest Ranks

What interests me here is not so much the CIA allegations - these after all have become somewhat commonplace and predictable -  but rather this one little sentence that hangs in mid-air, as it were, in an article otherwise devoted to rehashing the usual stories - true and necessary stories to rehash, to be sure - about the Dulles Brothers, Wall Street, and Sullivan and Cromwell. The sentence is this:

On September 29, 2001 - in a vital story that has gone unnoticed by the major media - the San Francisco Chronicle reported, "Investors have yet to collect more than $2.5 million in profits they made trading options in the stock of United Airlines before the Sept. 11, terrorist attacks, according to a source familiar with the trades and market data.

"The uncollected money raises suspicions that the investors - whose identities and nationalities have not been made public - had advance knowledge of the strikes." They don't dare show up now. The suspension of trading for four days after the attacks made it impossible to cash-out quickly and claim the prize before investigators started looking.

"... October series options for UAL Corp. were purchased in highly unusual volumes three trading days before the terrorist attacks for a total outlay of $2,070; investors bought the option contracts, each representing 100 shares, for 90 cents each. [This represents 230,000 shares]. Those options are now selling at more than $12 each. There are still 2,313 so-called "put" options outstanding [valued at $2.77 million and representing 231,300 shares] according to the Options Clearinghouse Corp."

"...The source familiar with the United trades identified Deutsche Bank Alex. Brown, the American investment banking arm of German giant Deutsche Bank, as the investment bank used to purchase at least some of these options..."

As reported in other news stories, Deutsche Bank was also the hub of insider trading activity connected to Munich Re. just before the  (Emphasis added)

This weird relationship and involvement of Deutschebank has, to my mind, never been adequately explained, and it is a perplexing one, for in the mad dash to assign ultimate blame to "neo-conservatives" or "the plan for the new American century" or "rogue elements in the CIA", we are forgetting the possibility that there may be yet another layer to the whole scenario, and yet another player on the block.

It is to my mind highly suggestive that in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy, that Germany has once again stepped up its efforts to repatriate its gold from the US New York Federal Reserve Bank, that the financial games being played in Europe with the economies of whole countries are, to my mind, for the sole geopolitical purpose of tying Germany to the debtor nations of Europe in order to keep Germany in the EU...

...and there's that disturbing Deutschebank connection in deep history, via Dr. Hermann Josef Abs, to the likes of Hitler, Bormann, Prince Bernhard... yea, I went there. But I did so because 9/11 continues to have a foul odor to it, and I don't mean just the odor of radical Islamicists, or rogue American neo-conservatives either... It continues to have, for me, the odor of the first shots in a "covert civil war" within the New World Order crowd.

See you on the flip side.
