Did Our USA President Bush [BGW968] Spike The Investigation Of Bin Laden ?
On my BBC television show, Newsnight , an USA journalist confessed that,
11.Sep.2001 -since the attacks, USA reporters are simply too afraid to ask the uncomfortable questions that could kill careers:
"It's an obscene comparison, but there was a time in South Africa when people would put flaming tires around people's necks if they dissented.
In some ways, the fear is that you will be neck-laced here USA, you will have a flaming tire of lack of patriotism put around your neck," Dan Rather said.
Without his makeup, Rather looked drawn, old + defeated in confessing that he too had given in.
"It's that fear that keeps journalists from asking the toughest of the tough questions + to continue to bore in on the tough questions so often."
My producers at Newsnight + editors at The Guardian were not so constrained.
So I was assigned to fly home to Ground Zero and ask the necessary question that could not, in the early days after the attack, leave the lips of USA reporters:
How did it happen that USA CIA +USA FBI +USA DIA Defense Intelligence Agency + our USA other extravagantly funded USA spooks could neither prevent nor learn in advance about
the most deadly attack on USA America since Pearl Harbor?
The answer was as unpleasant as the question.
If USA intelligence agencies did not see the attack coming it was because they were told not to look. Why?
From inside the USA agencies were obtained statements + documents indicating that the Bush administration blocked key investigations into allegations that
top Saudi Arabian royals + some members of the bin Laden family, not just Osama, funded + supported Al Qaeda + other terrorist organizations.

15.Aug.2004 You left out an important piece of information indicating the duplicity of USA Bush administration prior to the Iraq war: URL: https://www.inthesetimes.com/site/main/article/they_knew_0802/P80/
I still find it incredible that no one in Congress or the 11.Sep.2001 Commssion (apparently) or in the news media is interested in finding out when USA Intelligence...+ therefore the Bush [BGW968] administration...discovered that in 00.000.2000-00.000.2001 the year prior to the 11.Sep.2001 attacks over half the 11.Sep.2001 hijackers got free passage though IRAN (note: not Iraq).
Furthermore, the passports of the transitting hijackers weren’t stamped by the Iranian officials. Were these officials trying to hide something? Possibly guilt through association?
00.000.2002 prior to the vote Bush [BGW968]’s Iraq War Resolution were withheld from USA Congress, I believe.
This is a certainty.
00.000.2002 prior to the Iraqi war vote- being withheld from Congress by the Bush [BGW968] White House before -Remember this little tidbit of information-.
It is my contention that before the Iraqi war vote, the Bush [BGW968] administration was aware of this little tidbit of information about Iran’s complicity (i.e. accessories-before-the-fact) in their aiding + abetting of some 11.Sep.2001 hijackers.
Since our USA HUMINT wasn’t so hot, USA we must have received this information through SIGINT...+
we USA had broken the Iranian’s secret communication code...(when?)
It was just that we USA couldn’t put any faces to the names of the al Qaeda operatives transitting IRAN (note: not Iraq) before 11.Sep.2001 until shortly after 11.Sep.2001 when USA our intelligence agencies identified all the 11.Sep.2001 hijackers.
My guess would be that USA intelligence made this connection between over half the 11.Sep.2001 hijackers + IRAN (note: not Iraq) late in 2001 or in early 2002.
00.000.2002 -Therefore, long before the Iraq war resolution was voted on by USA Congress in- the Bush [BGW968] administration knew that the Iranian authorities were up their necks in contacts with al Qaeda.
00.000.2002 -before USA Congress voted- Do you remember reading or hearing anything about these Iran-al Qaeda connections?
00.000.200- -almost two years after the Iraq war resolution vote-In fact, it took- digging by the 11.Sep.2001 Commssion (which Bush [BGW968] + Cheney didn’t want snooping around in the first place) to reveal the Iran-al Qaeda connection. +
00.000.2004 -a week or so before the actual 11.Sep.2001 Commssion Report was released someone leaked this little tidbit of information to the press.
00.000.2004 -a week or so before the actual 11.Sep.2001 Commssion Report was released Someone in USA Bush [BGW968] White House didn’t want this Iran-al Qaeda revelation to be first discovered by people reading the report...
00.000.2004 -a week or so before the actual 11.Sep.2001 Commssion Report was released there probably would have been an even greater furor over what was definitive proof of Iranian contacts with al Qaeda pre-11.Sep.2001 versus the
15.Aug.2004 -stil-l tenuous connections al Qaeda may have had with Iraq.
By leaking this information prior to the 11.Sep.2001 Commssion report’s release, the Bush [BGW968] White House was able to have Bush [BGW968] answer with a non-answer that the
11.Sep.2001 -before- Iran-al Qaeda connection was worth studying.
Whenever this might happen is anyone’s guess.
I don’t get the feeling that the Bush [BGW968] White House is really that excited about anyone (especially in Congress) delving very deeply into this subject...do you?
