Just when we think the 9/11 story has gotten as bad as it possibly can get, something else comes along. In this case, a new revelation has coincided with my reading "The New Pearl Harbor" by David Ray Griffin.
I encourage everyone to read this book. For those who have not done so, we begin in Pakistan. How many readers have heard, or have at least suspected, that the United States created the Taliban?
"Impressed by the ruthlessness and willingness of the then-emerging Taliban to cut a pipeline deal, the State Department and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence agency agreed to funnel arms and funding to the Taliban." Ibid, p. 90; "Taliban", Ahmed Rashid, quoted by Ted Rall, San Francisco Chronicle, November 2, 2001.
Some readers may know that Unocal was involved in the proposed pipeline, but how many people know that Hamid Karzai of the Northern Alliance, who became Prime Minister of Afghanistan post-9/11, formerly advised Unocal on the proposed Trans-Afghanistan Pipeline (TAPI)?
How many readers believe that everything in the Middle East can be boiled down to one three-letter word, o-i-l? Oil is the simple explanation, but there is much more to our involvement in Middle Eastern and Central Asian affairs than that. Unfortunately, Trump has fallen prey to ignorance because, while claiming to have declared war on the opioid epidemic, he has committed to an increased presence in Afghanistan while hoping to convince our "partner", Pakistan, to help in the supposed War on Terror, seemingly unaware that our troops are standing guard over poppy fields. And, our involvement in drug trafficking is not a new concept; our major bankers made their fortunes on opium before the United States even declared its independence from Great Britain:
So, what does any of this have to do with Imran Awan, who reportedly first went to work for Robert Wexler in 2004? Just this:
According to Awan's LinkedIn profile, he began working for Congress in January 2000, which should raise everyone's eyebrows. David Ray Griffin and many others have linked both World Trade Center bombings with the attack on the USS Cole so that, if Awan and/or Pakistan was involved in September 11th, we must also look at any possible links to Yemen.
Which brings us to our favorite CIA operative, Evan McMullin. He states on Twitter that his job was to convince al-Qaeda operatives to work for the United States. In what capacity? Where did he recruit these members of al-Qaeda? Pakistan? Afghanistan? Both? Does he know the Awan brothers? Could he have been working to secure the TAPI pipeline? Or, was McMullin following the age-old CIA tradition of drug-running?
"The New Pearl Harbor" covers every conceivable angle of the 9/11 attacks and, again, I encourage everyone to read it. Griffin goes into minute detail, and the bibliography is fifty pages long! Getting back to the focus of this article, our involvement with the ISI and the Taliban/al-Qaeda is of grave concern, as is Pakistan's evident infiltration of our intelligence community and whatever role McMullin played in all of this.
It was only a couple of months ago when I wrote a series on the 9/11 attacks, detailing all of the problems with the official account of that day. When we add Imran Awan to the mix, the result is indescribably disturbing. If we operate under the premise that one or more factions within our government orchestrated or at least allowed September 11th to occur, then positioning one or more ISI agents where they can monitor intelligence in the preceding months makes perfect sense. And McMullin's possible involvement is absolutely chilling.
Drugs and oil. Are these the reasons 2,997 people were murdered? The reason we continue to sponsor terrorism while claiming to be at war with it? The reason we continue to protect drug routes while claiming we care about the "opioid epidemic"? And, given this latest twist, I now believe more firmly than ever that Robert O'Neill is an annuitant. He did not kill Osama bin Laden. My regular readers will recall the following article from Seymour Hersh:
Now that we know how closely the United States works with Pakistan's ISI, O'Neill's claim is all the more ridiculous. Would we really jeopardize our relationship with our "partner" by invading Pakistan's air space and storming a compound where the ISI was guarding bin Laden? The Obama Administration's story is now nothing short of ludicrous.
The key to unlocking this mess is Evan McMullin. As I have stated previously, he did not just pop up out of nowhere last year. What does he know? We need to find out.
