Deconstructing the 9/11 Dot Disconnection: a book review by Erik Larson

It is a non-controversial fact that the NSA, CIA and FBI missed a number of opportunities to disrupt the 9/11 plot. Many, but not all, of these failures were documented by the four main investigations that dealt with pre-9/11 intelligence failures: those by the Congressional Joint Inquiry, the 9/11 Commission, the Department of Justice Inspector General and the CIA Inspector General. The best-known investigation, the 9/11 Commission, ultimately concluded that 9/11 was preceded by “four kinds of failures: in imagination, policy, capabilities, and management” (339). This is the narrative largely held to by mainstream politicians and media, but these explanations do not credibly account for what happened at the NSA, CIA and FBI in the years, months and weeks leading up to 9/11. This has been demonstrated by a number of researchers, but Kevin Fenton’s* book, Disconnecting the Dots, has the most comprehensive documentation and in-depth analysis to date. Primarily using the official reports, the available source records and some reporting by mainstream media and journalists, Fenton documents how specific CIA and FBI officials engaged in deliberate efforts to protect the 9/11 plot from discovery and disruption by FBI investigators, and that the most probable explanation is that this was done in order to enable the 9/11 attacks.

Sibel Edmonds and John Cole- Oct 23, 2009 Interview by Scott Horton

Oct 23, 2009 FBI whistleblowers Sibel Edmonds and John Cole were interviewed by Scott Horton for AntiWar Radio. This post preserves the transcript, with links to the original and the audio. Edmonds and Cole discuss criminal networks and activities they became aware of during their time at the FBI. These networks involved members of Congress and State and DOD officials, and their counterparts in Israel, Pakistan, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Criminal activities include trafficking in nuclear secrets, bribery, blackmail, money laundering, using radical Islamists as proxies and more. FBI investigations into these activities were consistently obstructed and shut down by higher-level officials.

Decoding Scheuer’s Call for Osama to Kill More Americans – Corbett Report

“CIA analyst Michael Scheuer’s recent call for bin Laden to kill more Americans would be shocking if we hadn’t already heard it dozens of times before from other “War on Terror” advocates. “It’s an absurd situation,”Scheuer told FOX News personality Glenn Beck on his program last week. “Only Osama can execute an attack that will force Americans to demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, and with as much violence as necessary.”

Beck and Scheuer: Bin Laden Attack Needed for the Good of the Country

July 1, Glenn Beck hosted Michael Scheuer, former head of the ‘Alec Station’ Bin Laden unit. Scheuer claims “The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.” while Beck nods approvingly.

June 10, 2009, Beck smeared the entire 9/11 Truth Movement by falsely claiming that the despicable racist Holocaust Museum shooter Von Brunn is a hero of ‘9/11 Truthers’, and that Truthers are “like Al Qaeda! They’d like to destroy us, and they will work with anyone. There are also people like white supremacists or 9/11 truthers that would also like to destroy the country. They’ll work with anybody they can.”

The 9/11 Truth Movement is working to establish Truth and Justice- we are demanding answers and accountability and the movement as a whole is non-violent.

If Beck agrees with Scheuer, it would seem that he himself is an advocate of violence and destruction as a political tactic, i.e. terrorism.
