International intelligence agencies and governments are realizing why Bush was more interested in "My Pet Goat" on the morning of 9-11.
World leaders suspect the Bush administration of involvement in the
911 attacks. The first skeptics to question what role the Bush administration
played in the 9-11 terrorist attacks were a few Cabinet ministers in the governments
of America's NATO allies. They included German Science and Technology Minister
Andreas Von Bulow and British Environment Minister Michael Meacher. They were
joined by Belgian European Parliament Member Paul Lannoye.
However, in recent months the former Cabinet ministers have been joined in
their skepticism about the "official" version of the 911 events by
Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez and Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad.
In March, Chavez said Venezuela will open an official investigation into the
9-11 attacks. Now, Chavez has been joined by Ahmedinejad, who in a recent letter
to President George W. Bush, asked, "Why have the various aspects of the
[9-11] attacks been kept secret?" Ahmedinejad indicated that the attacks
could not have been carried out without the knowledge of the U.S. "security
The fact that the Venezuelan and Iranian leaders suspect Bush administration
complicity in 9-11 is interesting. These leaders have at their disposal two
highly-capable intelligence agencies. A major priority of the intelligence services
of Venezuela and Iran (DISIP and VEVAK, respectively) is counter-intelligence
against the United States. However, that is not likely where Venezuela and Iran
may have gleaned information about who was behind the 9-11 attacks. Venezuela
and Iran are members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)
and a major priority of their intelligence services is collecting information
on oil deals, including the Bush administration negotiations with the Taliban
in Tashkent and Berlin prior to 9-11 that quickly went sour and likely provided
the impetus for the Muslim insurgents to attack New York and Washington on 9-11.
VEVAK, a sworn enemy of the Taliban and Al Qaeda, had successfully penetrated
the Taliban's and Pakistan's security services and would have been well aware
of the attack plans and any U.S. foreknowledge of them, including knowing about
money movements from Pakistan to the hijackers in Florida. DISIP was well aware
of the smuggling of cocaine from Colombia, trans-shipped on a Saudi diplomatic
Boeing 737 through Venezuela, by Saudi Royal family members who then used the
proceeds to support Al Qaeda's attack on America.
As more and more governments are wrested from the control of the global neo-cons
-- Italy, Britain, Mexico, and others -- additional intelligence may be obtained
from various espionage agencies that will prove that the Bush administration
was not an idle bystander in the events that led up to 9-11.
