Al-Qaeda nukes may have reached US shores
UNGA session possible terror target 

Naveed Miraj © November 10, 2001, Frontierpost.com, Pakistan.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani and American investigators converge that Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network may have successfully transported several nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons of mass destruction to the United States, The Frontier Post learnt Friday.

Already on high alert, United States security officials are having sleepless nights that Al Qaeda can strike in New York again on the occasion of United Nations General Assembly session.

Investigators from Pakistan’s ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) and American FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) are jointly probing into the possibilities of Al Qaeda possessing nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.

They have reached a conclusion that at least two briefcase nuclear weapons may have reached the US shores, sources close to these investigators revealed to this scribe.

The investigators have been able to identify at least one briefcase weapon acquired by Al Qaeda from Central Asian rogue groups.

The weapon identified is small 8-kilogram device that carries at least 2 kg of fissionable plutonium and uranium.

The device, of Russian make, carries a serial number 9999 and manufacturing date October 1988.

The design of the device is simple.

The radioactive materials consist of Uranium and Plutonium both kept in separate compartments.

At the top of the two compartments is placed the charging mechanism.

The charging mechanism can be activated through a timer or even through a cell phone command.

Besides nuclear devices, a chemical and a biological weapon have also been identified to be in the hands of Al Qaeda activists.

They are said to be in possession of at least 70 capsules, also of Russian origin, containing a very lethal biological agent.

Broken in a crowded place, this capsule can cause deaths on a huge scale.

It melts human body meat to the bone.

Another chemical agent in the hands of Al Qaeda operators is called Vipera Lebentina Venema.

A derivative of snake poisons, this venom developed in USSR attacks through skin.

Most probable way of using this agent is through mail as with Anthrax.

US security agencies are already on high alert and realise that Al Qaeda can strike in New York again on the occasion of UN General Assembly.

Analysis of the recent statements released by Osama bin Laden carried out by US agencies has shown that the terrorist network can pick up an important occasion like the UN General Assembly session to retaliate against US strikes on Afghanistan.

BATH, W. AND FinCEN 
Houston Chronicle (Copyright 1992, 6/4/1992)

 
Federal authorities are investigating the activities of a Houston businessman -- a past investor in companies controlled by a son of President Bush -- who has been accused of illegally representing Saudi interests in the United States.
 
The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network -- known as FinCEN -- and the FBI are reviewing accusations that entrepreneur James R. Bath guided money to Houston from Saudi investors who wanted to influence U.S. policy under the Reagan and Bush administrations, sources close to the investigations say.
 
FinCEN, a division of the U.S. Department of Treasury, investigates money laundering. Special agents and analysts from various law enforcement agencies, including the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Customs Service, are assigned to work with the FinCEN staff.
 
The federal review stems in part from court documents obtained through litigation by Bill White, a former real estate business associate of Bath.
 
White contends the documents indicate that the Saudis were using Bath and their huge financial resources to influence U.S. policy.
 
Such representation by Bath would require that he be registered as a foreign agent with the U.S. Department of Justice. In general, people required by law to be registered are those who represent a foreign entity seeking to influence governmental action or policy.
 
An Annapolis graduate and former Navy fighter pilot, White, 46, claims that Bath and the judicial system, under the veil of national security, have blackballed him professionally and financially because he has refused to keep quiet about what he regards as a conspiracy to secretly funnel Saudi
dollars to the United States.
 
White became entangled in a series of lawsuits and countersuits with Bath, who for some six years has prevailed in the courts. White says the legal action has financially devastated him and Venturcorp Inc., the real estate development company in which he and Bath were partners.
 
In sworn depositions, Bath said he represented four prominent Saudis as a trustee and that he would use his name on their investments. In return, he said, he would receive a 5 percent interest in their deals.
 
Tax documents and personal financial records show that Bath personally had a 5 percent interest in Arbusto '79 Ltd., and Arbusto '80 Ltd., limited partnerships controlled by George W. Bush, President Bush's eldest son. Arbusto means bush in Spanish.
 
Bath invested $50,000 in the limited partnerships, according to the documents. There is no available evidence to show whether the money came from Saudi interests.
 
George W. Bush's company, Bush Exploration Co., general partner in the limited partnerships, went through several mergers, eventually evolving into Harken Energy Corp., a suburban Dallas-based company.
 
Bush, known informally as George Jr., is a shareholder and director of Harken, which has been granted lucrative offshore drilling rights off the coast of Bahrain in the Persian Gulf. One of the top shareholders of Harken, a public company, is Saudi businessman Abdullah Taha Bakhsh.
 
Bush said that to his knowledge, Bath's investment was from personal funds, and no Saudi money was invested in Arbusto.
 
Bath, 55, a former U.S. Air Force pilot, declined to comment for the record. Spokesmen for FinCEN and the FBI also declined to comment.
 
According to a 1976 trust agreement, drawn shortly after Bush was appointed director of the Central Intelligence Agency, Saudi Sheik Salem M. Binladen appointed Bath as his business representative in Houston. Binladen, along with his brothers, owns Binladen Brothers Construction, one of the largest construction companies in the Middle East.
 
According to White, Bath told him that he had assisted the CIA in a liaison role with Saudi Arabia since 1976. Bath has previously denied having worked for the CIA.
 
In a sworn deposition, Bath said he was the sole director of Skyway Aircraft Leasing Ltd., a company that a court document shows is owned by Khaled bin Mahfouz. Bin Mahfouz had been a major shareholder in the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, a banking empire that has been accused of money laundering and of using Mideast oil money to seek ties to
political leaders in several countries. Mahfouz and his family own the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia.
 
In 1990, Bath bought the Express Auto Park garage at Hobby Airport for $8.4 million, which included a $1.4 million loan provided by Mahfouz, according to transaction documents. Bath received a 5 percent interest in the companies that own and operate Houston Gulf Airport after purchasing it on behalf of Binladen in 1977. After Binladen died in 1988, his interests in
the airport were taken over by Mahfouz, according to court documents.

CORRECTION: NMN published the following article "Reagan Leta Atta Walk Free". The  Jerusalem Post 11/7/01 reports the Atta who walked free was not that Atta involved in WTC. 

Justice Ministry: WTC bomber was never held in Israel
By Arieh O'Sullivan, Jerusalem Post 11/7/01

There is no connection between the Mohammed Atta who kidnapped a passenger jet and flew it into the World Trade Center and a Palestinian of a similar name who was once extradited to Israel for blowing up a bus in the West Bank, the Justice Ministry announced today.
 
The report has been appearing on the so-called Internet rumor mill.

A Justice Ministry spokeswoman said terrorist pilot Mohammed Atta was never in Israeli custody.

The report is apparently based on the fact that, in 1990, the United States did extradite someone called Mahmoud Abed Atta to Israel to stand trial for an April 1986 machine gun attack on an Egged bus in Samaria which killed the driver.

Justice Ministry officials said he was eventually freed after the Supreme Court ruled there were faults in the extradition process. His whereabouts today are not known. 

That man, a Palestinian born in Ramallah, was 36 years old at the time and would be 47 today. The terrorist pilot the FBI identified as Mohammed Atta was just 33 years old and an Egyptian.

"It's not the same person. It's obviously two different men with similar names," the spokeswoman said

REAGAN LET ATTA WALK FREE

In case you didn't know ...

Terrorist pilot Mohammad Atta blew up a bus in Israel in 1986. The Israelis captured, tried and imprisoned him. As part of the Oslo agreement Israel had to agree to release so called "political prisoners." However, they would not release any with "blood on their hands." A well meaning American President, Ronald Reagan and his Secretary of State George Shultz "insisted" that all be released.

Thus Mr. Atta was freed and eventually "thanked the US" by flying an airplane into tower one of the World Trade Center. This was reported by many of the networks at the time that the terrorists were first identified.

It was censored in the USA from all later reports.

The American public should be made aware of this fact.

JAMES PATTERSON: Justice Department won't let agent testify 
November 03, 2001  

While Terry Nichols, already convicted on federal charges in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, returned to court Monday to face the state's case against him, the government was squirming to squelch evidence that Nichols and Timothy McVeigh did not act by themselves.

Nichols' attorneys asked Judge Ray Dean Linder if former FBI Agent Dan Vogel could testify that he had received 22 affidavits from Oklahomans who had seen McVeigh in the company of Middle Eastern men in the months, weeks, and days leading up to the bombing, and on the day of the attack.
Nichols' attorney, Barbara Bergman, said Agent Vogel, who has since retired, also wanted to testify that he had sent the 22 affidavits he got from former TV investigative reporter Jayna Davis to FBI Agent Henry C. Gibbons. But the FBI has not shared those affidavits with anyone, and may have destroyed them.

On Monday, Judge Linder ruled that Vogel could not testify for Nichols' regarding the affidavits because the Justice Department doesn't want the former FBI agent to be heard.
"The ruling was that he (Linder) would not permit him (Agent Vogel) to testify because the Department of Justice had taken the position that it would not authorize his testimony," Bergman said Thursday.
Is our own Justice Department so terrified of the truth that it won't let a retired FBI agent testify about affidavits regarding the Oklahoma City bombing? Can the government legally do this? It can try, Bergman says.

"The Supreme Court said (in United States vs. Touhy) that a state court judge could not hold an employee of the Department of Justice in contempt for failing to comply with a subpoena if they had been ordered not to provide the information by their superior," Bergman said. "Tom Majors, who is an assistant U.S. attorney, testified at Monday's hearing that he had received a letter from the Department of Justice refusing to authorize such testimony."

Like Vogel, Davis has been trying to get this story out. The former reporter, who prepared a series of investigative reports about the bombing for KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City and testified before a grand jury in the case, met with Larry Andrews of the Oklahoma District Attorney's Office in 1997.
She gave Andrews summaries of recorded statements with more than two dozen witnesses who identified several Arab men tied to various stages of the bombing plot. Also included in that packet were 200 pages of police and court records along with statements by law enforcement and intelligence sources that corroborated aspects of the eyewitnesses' testimony. In September of 1997 on the eve of Nichols' trial, Davis tried to turn the same evidence over to the FBI but they refused to take it.
Davis' attorney, W. Dan Nelson, has sworn in an affidavit that he was there when his client also turned over the 22 affidavits to Vogel. Here's a portion of Nelson's affidavit:

"In connection with my representation of Ms. Davis, on January 28, 1999, I attended a meeting with Ms. Davis and her husband, Drew Davis, at the Oklahoma City FBI Offices at 50 Penn Place. We met with Dan Vogel, a Special Agent of the FBI.

"The purpose of the meeting was for Ms. Davis to turn over to the FBI via Mr. Vogel copies of affidavits she had obtained from various individuals who had information that appeared to be relevant to the bombing. During the course of the meeting, Ms. Davis provided Mr. Vogel with twenty-two sworn affidavits. She also expressed concern about the safety of one of the witnesses."

In the time since Vogel turned over the affidavits to his superior, neither of the defense teams for McVeigh nor Nichols has seen them. There's not much doubt of McVeigh's or Nichols' complicity in the bombing, but withholding evidence that implicates other suspects in a murder case is obstruction of justice. It matters not if the entity withholding that evidence is the Justice Department.

"What are they hiding?" said Chicago attorney David P. Schippers, lead impeachment lawyer against President Clinton. "What are they hiding that they won't let an agent testify? There is no excuse for it; none whatever.

"You know the more things change, the more they stay the same," Schippers said. "I thought that was just confined to the Justice Department under Clinton. Apparently the Justice Department thinks they run the entire country."

My Dunno Sheet By William Safire

"Don't just write what you know," a great editor once instructed me about reporting an emerging story. "Make a list of what you don't know."

I came to call that a "dunno sheet." Abe Rosenthal's advice is again a useful reminder of how much is going on about which we have yet to learn. Here's part of my dunno sheet about the current hostilities:

1. With almost 700 suspects picked up in the U.S. and more in Europe, is anybody singing in jail? Have they been assigned wired Arabic-speaking cellmates? Are Muslim clerics being asked to help de-program any fanatics? Are we recruiting those we release for double-agent work?

2. How many secret "findings" were signed by Presidents Clinton and Bush since 1995 authorizing C.I.A. covert action in Afghanistan — and were those antiterrorist missions carried out?

3. How many U.S., British and possibly French commandos are reconnoitering in Afghanistan now, and have they made contact with anti- Qaeda Afghans or Taliban discontents willing to be bribed to reveal hideouts? Are commando-diplomats making deals with local warlords for them to be part of post-Taliban rule?

4. Has our bombing knocked out all Taliban broadcasting facilities? Has the Voice of America taken sides and broadcast Muslim clergy condemning as blasphemous the suicide-murderers' path to paradise? Are fearful Czechs trying to run Radio Free Europe out of Prague?

5. What vital information is being held back from the F.B.I. and C.I.A. by our Arab coalition "partners"? Did the U.S. share intelligence with Saudi, Egyptian and Jordanian spymasters that compromised the few Western sources in the Arab world?

6. Has Prime Minister Tony Blair secretly told President Bush that — absent absolute proof of Saddam Hussein's participation in the Sept. 11 attack — he should count Britain out of any move on nuclear or germ weapons being produced in Iraq? Has planning for "Phase II" — the removal of Saddam — been iced at the Pentagon?

7. What rule of engagement has been given our special forces regarding Osama bin Laden and his top aides — to kill or to capture? Do the potential benefits to us of interrogation outweigh the benefit to him of a trial's world forum and subsequent slaughter of hostages?

8. What anti-terrorist help have the Saudis, Egyptians and Yemenis warned us not to ask them for, and what arguments are going on within the Bush administration about why we have so far supinely acceded to their demands?

9. What, if any, is the role of James Baker, Brent Scowcroft and Edward Djerijian in trying to persuade Bush to appease "the Arab street" by pressuring Israel to give up its own war on terrorism? Will bin Laden's belated, televised embrace of the Palestinians panic the coalitionary White House into giving Hamas a terrorist victory that would further radicalize Muslims around the world?

10. What secret negotiations are underway with Russia to prevent the escape of Al Qaeda leadership to Chechnya? We want to stop that, but wouldn't bin Laden's presence give Vladimir Putin an excuse to obliterate all separatists there?

11. Since the two major stockpiles of anthrax spores are in Russia and Iraq, what help are Putin and his ex- K.G.B. associates giving us in tracking the source of terrorism's latest weapon?

12. With the Islamic Bomb in Pakistan's hands, and with unstable Indonesia ripe for radicalization, what feverish planning to enlist China's vast spy network is underway in our National Security Council — right now, in advance of Bush's trip to Shanghai?

I don't have the answers to this barrage of questions; indeed, that's why they are on the "dunno sheet." And when it comes to troop movements and the interrogation of suspects and the bribery of warlords, we should not know the answers yet because that might endanger lives.

But because the answers are hidden does not mean the answers do not exist. One by one, they will all spill out, in glorious or infuriating detail. Some will generate great pride and the awarding of medals for courage; others will cause much embarrassment, debate and the launching of Congressional investigations into "secret agreements."

Are we, as a nation, doing the right thing in counterattacking in great force? Yes. Are we forming alliances and cutting corners that will make us proud tomorrow? Dunno.

The program was called 'Continuity of Government.' In the words of a report by the Fund for Constitutional Government, 'succession or succession-by-designation would be implemented by unknown and perhaps unelected persons who would pick three potential successor presidents in advance of an emergency. These potential successors to the Oval Office may not be elected, and they are not confirmed by Congress.' According to CNN, the list eventually grew to 17 names and included Howard Baker, Richard Helms, Jeanne Kirkpatrick James Schlesinger, Richard Thornberg, Edwin Meese, Tip O'Neil, and Richard Cheney.'

THE CIA'S "CLEAR VISION".  CIA TESTS BOMBLETS TO DISPENSE BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS (NEW ANTHRAX STRAINS):

Click. Department of Defense briefing re: biological warfare research:
Q. ...on the issue of making bomblets, which are some of the pieces of technology that other countries have done to dispense biological weapons, has the United States made these small bomblets for experimenting or any other reason?
A. Clarke (DOD representative):  That comes under the Clear Vision program, which is a CIA project, so you should direct your questions over there.

Click. In a program codenamed Clear Vision, the CIA built and tested a model of a Soviet-designed germ bomb that agency officials feared was being sold on the international market. The CIA device lacked a fuse and other parts that would make it a working bomb, intelligence officials said.

Click. From what has been released to the public, it appears that expert studies are only addressing a single warhead on a missile. If a terrorist nation made a biological attack there would be scores of small canisters, or bomblets, on each missile. Countermeasures would not be necessary. The sheer numbers would overwhelm even the planned C-3 configuration.
