Government Officials Say 9/11 Was State-Sponsored Terrorism … But Disagree About WHICH Nation Was Behind Attacks

Did Iran Back 9/11 Hijackers? Saudi Arabia? Iraq? Afghanistan? America? Israel?

In December, an American court entered a default judgment against Iran for allegedly having a hand in the September 11th attacks. 1

On the other hand, a 9/11 Commissioner and the Co-Chair of Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 both say in sworn declarations that the Saudi government is linked to the 9/11 attacks. 2

Then again, right after 9/11, Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld accused Iraq of having a hand in the attacks.

People may not remember now, but – at the time – the supposed Saddam-9/11 link was at least as important a justification for the Iraq war as the alleged weapons of mass destruction. 3

Of course, the Afghanistan war was largely based upon the allegation that the leaders of that country – the Taliban – had harbored Bin Laden and other Al Qaeda terrorists. In other words, the U.S. government treated Afghanistan as being complicit in 9/11 by giving refuge to the 9/11 attackers. 4

At a minimum, America unintentionally created an atmosphere in which Al Qaeda terrorists could thrive. But numerous former U.S. military and intelligence officers think that rogue elements within the U.S. government intentionally allowed or facilitated the attacks.

A government official told Fox News:

Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.

Israelis were clearly spying on the 9/11 hijackers within America before 9/11. See this, this, this, this and this.

While many people say that Israel only spied on the hijackers – and didn’t withhold actionable intelligence from the U.S. government – others, including some former military officials (like this guy), allege that Israel withheld information from the U.S. or even had a hand in the attacks, pointing to suspicious activities regarding moving vans and explosives on 9/11. See this, this, this, this and this.

What does this mean? We don’t know for sure which nation or nations backed the 9/11 terror attacks.

But as the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 and former Head of the Senate Intelligence Committee Bob Graham told PBS Newshour in 2001, 9/11 was state-sponsored terrorism, and it is vital for America’s national security that we get to the bottom of who the backing country was (and whether more than one country was involved):

[Question]: Senator Graham, are there elements in this report, which are classified that Americans should know about but can’t?

SEN. BOB GRAHAM: Yes … I was surprised at the evidence that there were foreign governments involved in facilitating the activities of at least some of the terrorists in the United States.

I am stunned that we have not done a better job of pursuing that to determine if other terrorists received similar support and, even more important, if the infrastructure of a foreign government assisting terrorists still exists for the current generation of terrorists who are here planning the next plots.

To me that is an extremely significant issue and most of that information is classified, I think overly-classified. I believe the American people should know the extent of the challenge that we face in terms of foreign government involvement. That would motivate the government to take action.

[Question]: Are you suggesting that you are convinced that there was a state sponsor behind 9/11?

SEN. BOB GRAHAM: I think there is very compelling evidence that at least some of the terrorists were assisted not just in financing — although that was part of it — by a sovereign foreign government and that we have been derelict in our duty to track that down, make the further case, or find the evidence that would indicate that that is not true and we can look for other reasons why the terrorists were able to function so effectively in the United States.

[Question]: Do you think that will ever become public, which countries you’re talking about?

SEN. BOB GRAHAM: It will become public at some point when it’s turned over to the archives, but that’s 20 or 30 years from now. And, we need to have this information now because it’s relevant to the threat that the people of the United States are facing today.

Notes:

1 The 9/11 Commission Report states:

We have found no evidence that Iran or Hezbollah was aware of the planning for what later became the 9/11 attack.

The same lawsuit had previously named Iraq as a culprit, but dismissed Iraq when it became obvious there was no connection (see note 3).

A default judgment – such as the one against Iran – means that the defendant doesn’t appear in court, and so does not present a defense or contrary evidence. The judge instead often accepts virtually whatever the plaintiff claims, without examining or considering any contrary evidence.

2 The 9/11 Commissioner and the Co-Chair of Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 who say that Saudi Arabia is behind the 9/11 attacks are calling for either a “permanent 9/11 commission” or a new 9/11 investigation to get to the bottom of it.

3 This claim that Iraq is linked to 9/11 has since been debunked by the 9/11 Commission, top government officials, and even – long after they alleged such a link – Bush and Cheney themselves.

4 The Taliban allegedly offered to hand over Bin Laden to the U.S., but the U.S. refused the offer, and started bombing instead.

    9/11 was not state sponsored terrorism, rather it was carried out by a rogue network of moles inside the American defense and intelligence apparatus, loyal to privately owned banking cartels in Wallstreet and the City of London. So this can be defined as a super-national operation. We suspect those two nuclear suitcases which detonated in the basements of the towers were purchased from the Russian FSB during the 1990s , as a part of a dirty deal with Putin (the current poster boy of certain “alternative media” elements in the U.S.) : http://essential-intelligence-network.blogspot.com/2012/04/north-atlantic-sting.html

    • mothman777

      Or you could have tried saying they were some of the 1,000 nuclear suitcase bombs misleadingly revealed by CIA asset and fake Iranian double agent Khalilli to be planted all over the world by Iran in their battle for world domination.

    The invasion of Afghanistan was planned over 10 months ahead of September 11 terrorist attack. So, it could not be Taliban or al-Qaeda.

    Like the faked “Iraqi WMD”, Iraq was blamed for the 9/11 before it was invaded and occupied on 2003 “Purim night”. Later, US officials admitted that Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with the 9/11.

    Saudi Arabia was suspected of collaborating with the Bush administration – so that Muslim could be blamed for the terrorism. Howeve, no one had claimed that Saudis “masterminded the event.

    It was on May 19, 2011 – Benjamin Weiser, a Zionist Jew writer, who brought both Iran and Hizbullah into the 9/11 frame in an article in Ziocon mouthpiece, The New York Times. “Iranian officials had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks“. He also claimed that 9/11 Commision Report “found no evidence that Iran or Hezbollah was aware of the planning for what later became the 9/11 attack” – but some how his Zionist guts feeling told him that both Iran and Hizbullah did have pre-knowledge of 9/11.

    While the evidence indicates that the Israelis had prior knowledge of 9-11, commonly-held misconceptions about Israel and a general lack of understanding of Zionism’s brutal history of terrorism prevent most people from comprehending the Israeli connection. An ignorance of Zionist history, cultivated by the controlled media, prevents people from understanding the present reality. In order to understand 9-11, it is essential to have a grasp of the history of previous Israeli attacks on the United States, such as, Lavon Affair (1954), JFK assassination (1963), USS Liberty attack (1967), Operation Trojan (Libya 1986), Pan Am bombing (1988) and others.

    The Colorado Public Television has produced a documentary, entitled ‘Explosive Evidence – Expert Speak Out’. The documentary interviews over 40 Scientific experts who share their professional insights about the events of September 11, 2001.

    The documentary is produced by the Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth features dozens of credentialed experts in architecture, engineering, and other related fields who argue that the World Trade Center (WTC) Twin Towers and WTC Building 7 were not brought down on September 11, 2001, by the office fires ignited by the jetliner impacts, but rather by explosive controlled demolition. Watch the video here. Also watch another video here featuring many of the surviving clips from eyewitnesses and news footage from 9/11 that were only shown once on television and never replayed.

    Unless the government openly investigates all known state involvement then in effect it is saying “we sanction some state attacks against America but not others” … which makes no sense on its face.

  • John

    Thanks for being openly skeptical of the official 9/11 story and the official investigation. Very few others dare to reveal their doubts for fear of offending a huge crowd of conspiracy skeptics who consider the matter settled. Yes the conspiracy/truther crowd IS in trouble because they postulate alternative theories, speculating on specifics about how the attacks occurred and end up in endless debates on technicalities. Without a proper investigation this approach is doomed, because supporters of the official story can always win an argument where the proof of the truthers relies on complex speculations. Lets focus on who the hijackers were, who knew about them, who funded them and other elements of the 9/11 timeline that help connect the dots that reveal the official story/investigation to be untenable.

    • Lee

      The most focused argument is from the “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth.”
      They only stick to the facts and to the laws of science to claim simply that the report from NIST is flawed. That’s where it needs to start. The main stream needs to hear facts from experts before the accusations of false flag operation.

      I personally have come to the conclusion that this was a Mossad/CIA operation based on the American Neoconservative goals set by the Bush administration and Dick Cheney in particular.

  • Terrence

    Israel mossad watched the US false flag itself and used blackmail to get the destruction of Iraq and now wants Iran destroyed.

  • san

    Everybody and their grandmother understands that the official 9/11 story doesn’t fit the facts. What remains a mystery, is the reason why the majority of people in the army, in the police, in the press, and other people still prefer to pretend they believe in absurd lies rather than confront reality.

    Perhaps people need to believe in a nice story more than they need the truth.

  • Odin

    Zionists planned 911 with help of some high ranking US government officials including Cheney and Bush family members especially former head of CIA Bush Snr, George Bsh Jnr’s knowledge was limited before 911. CIA/Mossad agents under the guise of Al Qaeda trained paid and controlled the useful idiot muslim terrorists. Mossad agents and CIA black ops planted explosives in world trade centres. Larry Silverstein was let in on the plot by zionist buddies and made billions. Zionists own and control america. Once the land of the free now the home to the slave.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GD_vwzjdTi4 Mark

    911 = mossad = Israel.

    Watch the movie “911 missing links” to learn the truth

    • David Currie

      I agree that 911missinlinks.com explains who did 911 explicitly. However, I do not agree that it claims Israel did it. Rather it was international Zionism which was behind the attacks, not just the Zionist state. Israel could be destroyed, and international Zionism would still control the world, because its primarily based in the City of London and NYC, along with Hollywood for mind controlling the masses. Israel is NOT a “Jewish state” no mattter how many times people say it is. The House of Rothschild created Israel as their Zionist state center of world terrorism, and Jewish people are brainwashed into thinking its their state. The Ashkenazi Jews who control Israel have no connection to the biblical Jews, and therefore no historic biblical claim on Israel. International Zionism was created as a psyop to use Jews as scapegoats, and most Jews are not Zionist, while most Zionists are not Jews. International Zionism, the international bankers who created it, and the illuminati families who control the world are the enemy of all freedom loving people.

  • common sense

    If you want to prove the world trade centers were destroyed by nukes or other demolition means you must scoure the area for remaining evidence. 10 years later and there is still dust, rocks, glass, debris, and paper on all the surrounding buildings. You think cleanup crews are that good? Think again. The cleanup crews were just there to make a living, not hide evidence, like all migrant workers.. No joke. You can find pieces of the world trade center on surrounding rooftops in the smallest of crevices and ductwork. Find undocumented debris, and have it analyzed by a university without telling them where the sample came from. You will have all the evidence in the world at that point. US and Israeli weapons leave very specific signatures of chemical composition. Once that signature is identified in a rock sample from new york. People will start to hang themselves.

  • W0X0F

    We know that a memo came out in August, 2001 about plane hijackings and crashing them into buildings. The focus then was on hijackings out of the Philippines with west coast targets.
    The US capitol, White House, Pentagon and FBI HQ have been protected by defensive missiles since the middle 1990’s.

    Our government knew an attack was coming, and that it would behoove them to have our defenses stand down in order to get a “New Pearl Harbor” so they could execute their preplanned war on Iraq.

    The surprise to the government was that the three towers were imploded. Who did it?

  • mothman777

    That’s right, watch the film ‘911missinglinks’ and you will see exactly which nation did 911; Israel did it. Watch the film and then come back and I guarantee you will not be able to justifiably or reasonably say there is any room for doubt. Please tell every serving member of the US military services to see this film and then put a real government in power in the US, because if you don’t, then Israel will lead the US into WWIII and that will be the end of the US.

  • Helen

    if these govt oficials dont have the balls to speak about isrls benefit with all that has happened after 911 then they need to resign or hung for treason.. everyone knows it was the zionists back isrl and the missad and the bankers who pulled this off, it is time to start hanging some of them and then go after the bush’s and the channeys

  • Adam Evenson

    I am glad to see the world of intelligent citizens waking up so dramatically. I had just about lost all faith in humanity for any hope of being anywhere akin to me, until day 9-11 came along and put pressures on humanity to be as I am. It’s been a long time coming, but humanity is proving, very powerefully, that at least a large segment of it is exactly as I am, and embodies the moral characteristics that I cherish, which are all the virtues that the Bible names, among them being truth, honesty, justice and compassion. It’s a thrilling prospect for me. It could at least restore a few kilowatts of my hope in a humanity that has dwindled almost to absolute zero. The last hope I had was in babies, and then humanity began to slaughter them mercilessly. I am still contemplating the end of humanity for it. It is my biggest quandary. If I decide to end it, humanity will be no more. And so, a few kilowatts of hope, within me, are important.

  • hawaii guy

    It doesn’t matter, it might have mattered 10 years ago, but today people in power are beyond the law. Were done as a nation, we are all dead inside. Time to move passed this as frustrating as it is. Those who know will never convince those who can’t get past the aluminum and barium barrier sprayed over our heads every night.

  • SaulRosenberg

    It’s time for everyone to let go of “who caused 9/11?”.
    Why do I say this?
    Because the official story is what is being taught. People as a whole do not care who is responsible for 9/11. Them thar Muslims did it and that’s that.
    We lost. Truth lost. It’s time to get over this and move on.
    If one examines the “Holocaust©”, it’s obvious that six million Jews weren’t killed, or there were not the amount of WMD’s in Iraq as claimed (or insert your own historical fiction here)…but you know what…they own the media and the educational books/system and that’s that.
    People are stupid; get over it and move on.
    Just try to be vigilant as to not be caught in one of their schemes.

    • MC

      It’s not possible to “just move on”, because every facet of our lives is affected by this power grab. Don’t you see that you can’t just avoid getting caught up in their schemes? Do you pay taxes? Do you eat GMO foods? Do you have loans with interest? Do you buy clothing made by children working as slaves in other countries? The power of the elite is increasing exponentially, and the “just move on” attitude feeds right into what they want. No way are they getting away with murdering 3000 Americans and many more in the wars! Our lives are far from free of this group and their schemes. There is no reason they wouldn’t pull something like this and worse, again, if it serves their plans. Sorry, but but we cannot move on until the people of this planet see justice and truth regarding 911.

  • hawaii guy

    Ps “Al-Qada” isn’t a real group or ideology, it was a fabrication of our wonderful govt. It is loosely based on Salafist muslim extremism, but I think its closer to zionist mossad than anything.

Our justice department has been running interference for the Bush criminal cabal and anyone else with a picture of J. Edgar Hoover in drag. Local police officials and their deputies, patrolmen, and children are sacrificed on the streets to facilitate the drug cartels for the top drug people and the congress is too busy mewling and cringing to do jack. You people have had 11 years to kick congress into line. if I tried to do it alone, I would be arrested. Jesus is not going to come down and save your sorry butts.

    It isn’t as if any rational person still believes the USA is a free country. Think about it. No-warrant wire taps, indefinite detention of citizens without charges, approval of rendition of prisoners and torture, stop and frisk without probable cause, search and seizure without a warrant, no-knock entry, confiscation and destruction of cameras that might have been used to film police acting illegally, police brutality, police shootings that go without investigation, managed news, and the civil-rights destroying “Patriot” Act.

    Acts of police behaving illegally, with shootings, Tasers, and unwarranted violence now appear almost daily. Rarely are these offenses punished. Most often “an investigation” is claimed, but soon forgotten.

    

In addition, the USA, with 5% of the world population, has 25% of all of the prisoners in the world. That means the USA has the most people in prison of any nation in history. Even by percentage of residents incarcerated, not just sheer numbers. USA is # 1

.

    Does any of that sound like a free country?

    As Dwight D. Eisenhower said about communism, “It’s like slicing sausage. First they out off a small slice. That isn’t worth fighting over. Then they take another small slice that isn’t worth fighting over. Then another and another. Finally, all you have left is the string and that isn’t worth fighting over, either.
