Maurice Greenberg & 9/11

Here is a list of interesting facts about a man that may lead us to the connection between the Rothschilds, the banking empire, Henry Kissinger, the insurance companies, and the 9/11 attack.

This is just facts for now; maybe later will we have some conclusions.

He was born in New York City May 4, 1925, the son of Jacob Greenberg and Ada (Rheingold) Greenberg.

He dropped to only #214 in the Forbes list of the richest people for 2006:

Maurice Greenberg was deeply involved in chinese trade in the 80s, where Henry Kissinger was one of his representatives. In the China trade, Greenberg became very close to Shaul Eisenberg, the leader of the Asian section of the Israeli intelligence service Mossad, and agent for the sales of sophisticated military equipment to the Chinese military.

He joined the insurance firm, Continental Casualty Co., in 1952. Continental executive J. Milburn Smith recommended Greenberg to the C.V. Starr insurance/spy organization, which made Greenberg its vice president in 1960, its president and CEO in 1967, and its chairman, succeeding Starr, in 1969.

From 1988 to 1995, Greenberg was a director of the New York Federal Reserve bank ­ this is the main bank through which Federal Reserve chiefs and the Bank of England execute their U.S. political-economic policy. Greenberg was deputy chairman of the New York Fed in 1992 and 1993, and New York Fed chairman in 1994 and 1995.

During 1996, while Greenberg was deputy chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), he chaired the CFR task force on intelligence, which published "Making Intelligence Smarter: The future of U.S. Intelligence."

This report mostly served to exhibit Greenberg's access to the intelligence community; but he parlayed it into a nomination by Senator Arlen Specter and others, for Greenberg to be Director of the CIA.

Kroll Associates, a security consultant firm, which was renamed to Kroll Inc. in August 2001, started in New York City in 1972. In December 1997, Kroll merged with armored car manufacturer O'Gara-Hess & Eisenhardt to form The Kroll-O'Gara Company.

O'Gara is responsible for the security of all US-Presidents since 1945.

In 1993, Maurice Greenberg's American International Group (AIG), became co-owner of the "private spy agency", Kroll Associates, as a result of rescuing Kroll from bankruptcy with a cash infusion.

Kroll was notorious during the 1980s as the "CIA of Wall Street" due to the prevalence of former CIA, FBI, Scotland Yard, British secret service and British Special Air Service men Kroll employed for corporate espionage in takeover bids, as well as for destabilization of foreign nations.

Greenberg has used his connections to covert intelligence, supranational institutions, private bankers and speculators, and his huge global cash inflow, to shape a unique personal empire. Since 1997, Frank G. Wisner, Jr., has been a board member of Kroll , and is currently Greenberg's Deputy Chairman for External Affairs.

Wisner's father was a founder of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, who killed himself over the scandal from his being duped by British-Soviet masterspy Kim Philby. Frank Wisner, Jr., is a director of the George Bush-linked energy giant Enron (a client for whom AIG negotiated payments from Peru over nationalization of Enron operations).

In the early 1990s, Miami-based private investigator Lou Polumbo joined Kroll Associates. According to sources in the industry, Polumbo brought with him a personal history of involvement with the Medallin and other South American narcotics cartels; his business included helping relocate some of the capabilities of these cartels out of Colombia.

The deal to bring Polumbo into Kroll was worked out by Avram Shalom, the former head of Israel's Shin Beth secret police. Shalom went to work for Kroll; he had been fired as Shin Beth boss due to a scandalous massacre of Palestinians in the Israel-occupied territories by his Shin Beth agents.


Nice Job, Fester. You hit the Daily Double ! !
A nice, well rounded bio to start a rap sheet on Greenberg -
( the "Shaul Eisenberg / Permindex Connection" )

Some people call him "Maurice"!
Some people call him a "Gangster of Love"...
But me, I just call him "Hanky Panky", oh yeah,
Cuz he fits 9-11 like a velvet glove.

Ol' Hanky Pank deserves a lot of credit for a nice job too,
( you know, like an "Inside-Outside" Job ? ? )


Seems Phil and the boys were musing deeply on the "terra" threat way back in 1998. What a prescient prick he is.

Bollyn identifies the Mitre Corp as a likely hand in things with plenty of them ol' Jewish roots. Go figure!

THE 9/11 GANG - Exposing the Criminal Zionist Network Behind 9/11 and the "War on Terror"

by Christopher Bollyn, 7 December 2006

Given Greenberg's well established relationship with
Shaul Eisenberg
, here is a snippet that provides some invaluable background for Hank's historic association
with "the richest Jew in the world".

[For those who are not familiar with Eisenberg's mammoth ISRAEL CORP., it is an industrial behemoth which sustains our little rogue state to this very day, under the able tutelage of the "Ofer Boys". But let's save them for later.]

---"What, then, is the connection ? The facts are that in 1963 Red China and Israel were secretly engaged in back-channel joint nuclear weapons development. And what's more, the key figure in the joint Red Chinese-Israeli dealing was none other than the late Shaul Eisenberg, longtime business partner of Mossad arms procurement and finance officer,
Tibor Rosenbaum
, the driving force behind
the PERMINDEX Corporation -
[Permanent Industrial Exposition]

that was central to the JFK assassination conspiracy."


Israel's longtime middleman in the Mossad's secret dealings with China - Shaul Eisenberg - was so deeply involved in the dealings with China that when he dropped dead of a sudden heart attack at age 76 on March 27, 1997, it was not even in Israel, but in Peking. Eisenberg was closely and directly connected (at the time of the JFK assassination) to the PERMINDEX [Permanent Industrial Exposition] operation which spun the web of conspiracy in the JFK assassination. Once described by an Israeli writer as "the richest Jew in the world" Eisenberg was, as we have seen, not only a key figure in Israel's nuclear development programs but also a partner of PERMINDEX banker Tibor Rosenbaum in the Mossad financial operation known as the Swiss-Israel Trade Bank.
Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman describe Eisenberg and his long covert history as Israel's contact with Red China as follows:

"Israel's wealthiest businessman, Eisenberg was born in Europe and found refuge during World War II in the Far East. He settled in Japan, where he married a Japanese woman and made his fortune selling war surplus and scrap metal.

"Eisenberg quickly established himself as one of the leading middlemen in the region. He never lost his awareness of being a Jew, however, and his emotional ties led him to set up businesses in Israel and then to move his family there. He kept his interests in the Far East and in the late 1970s was able to pave a pathway to Beijing for Israeli military exports. "His most formidable tool was his private jet, on which he could ignore the official hostility between the two nations and fly high-level Israelis directly to China. Eisenberg made dozens of trips, carrying [security assistance] officials, army advisers, financiers, and military salesmen for what the Israelis described as their 'toughest negotiations ever'. "After making a solid initial contact, Eisenberg would leave the
coordination of hidden deals and shipments to the Mossad, which acted in its traditional role as Israel's secret alternative foreign ministry."

Eisenberg, who ran 20 companies doing business in more than 30 countries was clearly a figure of central and critical importance to the survival of Israel and its positioning in the world arena. The WASHINGTON TIMES once described Eisenberg's ensconcement in Israel after his years abroad: "Moving to Israel, Mr. Eisenberg became the most powerful tycoon in its history. The 'Eisenberg Law' was passed in the 1970's to free him of the country's massive tax burden so he would continue to operate from there...

He controlled the giant Israel Corporation holding company and held a 49 percent share in the national shipping company
ZIM, one of the largest shipping and transportative companies in the world. He also dominated Israel Chemicals.
( the two have since been merged )

Eisenberg's major role in Israel's chemical industry is interesting, of course, that in 1957, in partnership with the Rosenbaum and Eisenberg -controlled Swiss-Israel Trade Bank, Michigan industrialist Max Fisher - the political king-maker behind the Warren Commission member Gerald Ford - bought a controlling interest in the Israeli conglomerate that dominated the petrochemical industry in Israel. So Eisenberg himself had a direct link with one of the so-called "mystery men behind Gerald Ford" who told Ford "what to do and when to do it."


In reference to the Zim shipping company, it will be recalled, that it was Zim, jointly owned by Eisenberg and the Israeli government, that hired French General Maurice Challe, one of the leading conspirators in the PERMINDEX backed OAS, after Challe was released from prison for his involvement in plots against Charles DeGaulle. So clearly, Eisenberg was most definitely a "man in the middle" in many ways in relation to key players and events that have been linked to intimate circles of conspiracy that led to the JFK assassination.

However, despite all of Eisenberg's vast wealth, according to the Washington Times, "What made [Eisenberg] most interesting were his links to the Israeli secret service,
the Mossad . Israeli intelligence sources say he shared information with the Mossad for decades and employed
many former senior intelligence and army officers."


The "official" story is that Eisenberg's dealings with China
(at least in the realm of arms transfers) began only in 1979.
Uri Dan, writing in the NEW YORK POST, reports that at that time, then-Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin got U.S. approval for authorizing Eisenberg to undertake a $10 billion 10-year deal to modernize the Chinese armed forces thereby "strengthening the counterbalance to Soviet military might." Dan describes this deal as "one of the most important in Israeli history" and that "the Chinese insisted on absolute secrecy... [but that] secrecy was no problem for Eisenberg."

It appears that Israel had already calculated that it simply could not open up direct diplomatic relations and business deals with Red China until - at first - the United States had already opened the door. In 1969, Yigal Allon, then Israel's deputy prime minister, had said publicly, "Perhaps, when a positive change occurs in the relations between the USA and China, some sort of change will occur in the Chinese attitude toward us."

Thus, after Richard Nixon, as U.S. President, did open the door to Red China, Israel's maneuvering began and Eisenberg launched on the secret "official" deals that ultimately became part of the public record. In fact, it was only well after Eisenberg's secret (but really not so secret) arrangement of the first arms sales to China was set in motion in 1979 that the major media in the West began reporting ( without any comment) about the revelations of Israel's arms deals with Red China - the giant Asian colossus that we had otherwise been told was hostile to tiny Israel.


The first notation of an important arms relationship between China and Israel came in the staid and little-read (but highly influential) British journal, JANE's DEFENSE WEEKLY, in November of 1984 [995] - five years after Eisenberg's "official" entree into dealings with China on behalf of Israel. While Jane's estimated that the Israeli arms trade with China might be as high as $3 billion, Israel's annual arms exports were approximately $4 billion at that time, which means that fully 75 % of Israel's arms exports were headed for China, clearly its best customer.

It was some three months later that the general public heard mainstream media report about Jane's revelations of the Israeli-Red Chinese arms deals.

On January 24, 1985, for example, the WASHINGTON TIMES reported that "Israel is believed to have about 200 military advisers in China and to be filling arms orders from Peking worth more than $1 billion." The TIMES reported that a Chinese Embassy spokesman said that his government was not buying arms from Israel; at the same time an Israeli Embassy spokesman in Washington said he could "neither confirm nor deny" the reports about joint Chinese and Israeli arms transfers.

Thus, after nearly forty years of covert dealings between the Mossad and the Chinese intelligence service that had never been reported in the press, the Western media began to advise its readers that - lo and behold - Israel had been selling billions of arms to China since the deal was first set in place by Shaul Eisenberg in 1979. However, the secret relationship, as we have seen,
was one which seems to have been cemented firmly by about 1963 - probably on November 22 when John F. Kennedy's plans for a military attack on Red China's nuclear facilities came to an abrupt end. And less than one year later
Red China exploded it's first nuclear bomb................

Anybody wanna buy a used Eisenhower model
"military industrial complex",
otherwise known as PERMINDEX ?

Maybe ol' Hanky Pank might just have enough scratch ?

Or maybe our old Port Authority, Lewis Eisenberg ?


Quas, you are cornucopic as usual. Been some time since I read Piper's book on the Israeli turkey shoot job on JFK. Time to revisit it.

No luck on a google image search for Shaul E. Odd that. You wouldn't perchance have an image you could paste-o do you? Gracias.

Holy Hell, Fester! ! !

After searching for what seems like an eternity over the
past year, I have finally, at YOUR own request, unearthed a TOTALLY AWE INSPIRING photograph of the legendary SHOUL EISENBERG - the only one I've ever seen !

The main reason it took so long to find is, although I had often searched the web under the 'SHOUL' (rhymes with GHOUL) handle, I never searched IMAGES under that spelling.

I found it on a very exotic looking website. Maybe our linguistic 'History Worm' will be able to help us translate it. You'll be able to make out a reference to "Mossad", however.

Though it may be a recent entry, I am forwarding this in
it's own native format, for you, and all the world to finally see -
an EXTREMELY RARE photograph of the ultra-secretive Shoul Eisenberg ! The Richest Jew in the World ! !

I feel like I just found the Ark of the Covenant !

I will get back to you after I finish jumping up and down on
my bed, and go pop open a beer to celebrate. I can't help it,
I can't wait, I'm posting it right up top !



Quasimodo, oy vey! TRULY you haf done it dis time vid your unruly researching skills! Your Uncle Fester is not best pleased to have missed dis here scoop!

Still, I send you an E-brew and thanks for this fine and very funky find.

Yes, Eisenberg was a close friend of Kissinger’s. He was the main weapons supplier to Cambodia's genocidal Khmer Rouge regime in the 1970s. The weapons, manufactured in the U.S., went to Israel, then China, then Cambodia.

During World War II, Eisenberg made his primary bases of operation in Japanese-occupied Shanghai, and in Japan itself. (He married a Japanese woman.)

Zionist terrorism was born in the Jewish community of Shanghai. There, Eisenberg-- along with Imperial Japanese military intelligence units-- formed units of the Irgun and the Shanghai Betar.

The Polish Zionist Yakob Jabotinsky (a supporter of Mussolini) founded Betar in the 1930s to liquidate British people in Palestine and get the land ready for Zionist occupation.

Using knowledge gained from the Imperial Japanese, the Irgun and Betar terrorist gangs moved out of Shanghai after World War II, and started to kill Arabs and Brits in Palestine. Later the two gangs merged to form the murderous Likud Party.

Eisenberg also sold weapons to Central America's most bloodthirsty dictatorships, including Anastasio Somoza in Nicaragua.

Kissinger, plus Ford's long-time Michigan financial backer, industrialist Max Fisher (Jew) were both financially linked to Eisenberg.

Ford's supposed "grand moment" was the repatriation of the crew of the U.S. "merchant" (spy) ship, the SS Mayaguez from Khmer Rouge forces in 1975. This was a lie. It was a Kissinger-Eisenberg ruse to build up Ford's support after the American military defeat in Vietnam. That ruse cost the lives of 41 U.S. Marines, plus countless Cambodian military forces and civilians.

As alluded to above, Kissinger allowed Eisenberg to modernize China's armed forces with $10 billion in Israeli and U.S.-designed weapons, re-exported through Israel.

Logistics were no problem, since Eisenberg's Israel Corporation owned a 49 percent share in Zim Shipping, the world's third largest shipping company.

Today Mossad uses Zim Shipping to smuggle weapons throughout Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka. Mossad has an office (a “surveillance station”) close to Zim shipping’s Mekong port facilities in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Space is too limited here, but I believe Mossad assassinated India’s Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. To explain why, I’ll have to do a post about it in my own blog.

On September 28, 2005 a Zim Shipping vessel (the "Zim Asia") collided with a Japanese fishing vessel, killing seven Japanese sailors 25 miles off the Nosappu Cape in northern Japan. The "Zim Asia" was full of North Korean weapons bound for Serbia, all under the guidance of Mossad. Its captain, Moshe Ben David, skipped out and let the Japanese die. Israel later allowed him to be arrested in Haifa, because Israel is taking steps to sink its claws into Japan.

>>>Sorry for skipping around so much. I’m just saying that Eisenberg’s influence lives on.

I think I’ll write a detailed post about him.

Thanks AZ, for those peripherals on Shoul Eisenberg.
The Shanghai angle is simply astounding. I think we are BOTH trying to say Eisenberg's influence lives on,
to put it mildly. Do I see a family resemblance here ?

I am still reeling from my previous discovery. That old adage about a picture and a thousand words is true as it ever was, especially when we learn to identify an image with an identity , or name. Until we get familiar with these characters as a face and a name, they will always be floating above and below any radar of detection leading to final justice.

I've been trying to limit my discussion here to an Eisenberg - Greenberg nexus, in order to establish it as yet another cornerstone of 9-11. Towards that end, I have run across a very juicy, ( if somewhat scattered ) thread at Portland Indy, from last year, that ties together a ton of loose ends.
It suddenly reminded me of Poseidon.

I offer it here to further establish, and embellish, a tangible "Permindex Connexion". I have therefore 'cached' it
for Shoul Eisenberg and Maurice Greenberg, respectively,
( and with all due respect, for certain ).
2006.06.23 - 9-11, Goldman Sachs, Kroll, AIG, Silverstein

BTW- if you get a chance to troll around on that Turkish website, ( a superb site ! ) you can click some of it up in English, but unfortunately not the Shoul-Mossad article.
For that feat, we must await the advent of History Worm.
( He owes me one, anyway )

Grazii for that E-Beer, Uncle Fess ! I was so excited,
I spilled it all over my keyboard !


Quas & AZ, great, great stuff! So much to digest. LOVE the graphic. Homemade? I couldn't find such a site, but would love the whole set.

I'd heard of Lewis Eisenberg and the WTC-Port Authority deal to fatten Larry Silverstein's bank account through the Bollyn interviews at So satisfying to pair the info with that on Papa Shoul.

Think we're should consider switching to a red wine, rather than the beer, for such hearty fare. May I humbly suggest a 1997 Barons de Lafite Rothschild Reserve Speciale Bordeaux. Think the 2001 vintage is still a little raw.

When the stakes are ready, I'll shell out for the 1874 Chateau Mouton Rothschild at $ 6258.00 per unit!

My Turk Azari friend is going to look at it tomorrow. That 911Houseofcards site is a house of mirrors - good thing I brought by hammer!

Thanks for your generous offer, but I think the "stakes"
are a little too high, if you get my drift.

Think I'll pass on the pricey Mogen David wannabes.
My taste for blood is strictly into Dago Red.

Can ya fetch me somethin' in a ' 69 Chianti,
for 9.99 tops, with lots of Sicilian mud in it ?

If you can line that up, we can all have a slug of it,
and maybe a few hands of Pinochle, eh ?

But we'll need a special deck, won't we ?

My dear Papa always told me, " be careful what you ask for, sonny boy, or you just might..."
collect whole house, action parts sold separately

( and spare me those cheesy dead links, will ya ? )


Quas, your wish is my command.

We do need a label and a nom du grape. How many hogsheads shall I put ya down for. This stuff will to need to fester a while. Sweet dreams.

Festering Fester:

After a gander at your commodious jug, I am puzzled as to exactly what it may contain, ( although it very well could be where the original 'Grapes of Wrath' are stored ).

It might pass for a Tuscan Chianti, but appears more to be a 'Nero', or 'dark one'. This type is not to be confused with what an infamous Emperor drank , while fiddling, as Rome burned.

I've decided to forego a Chianti for something more akin
to the appearance of your contents, of more recent vintage,
and pending substantial further "festering".

At 19.99 tops, the above label should serve us well for a
"nom du grape" and house of origin. An overall excellent
'Indicazione Geografica Tipica' insures plenty of residual mud, from the poor, but happy feet of those who trampled it.

Product Name: Nero D'Avola Miceli / Sicilia Rosso I.G.T.

This rich red wine is from the nero d’avola grape, Sicily’s own; the grapes are grown in some of the island’s best vineyards. The wine was given an 8-day maceration on the skins, then matured in oak barrels for 12 months and in stainless steel tanks for a further 6 months. Miceli nero d’avola displays a forward, lively character: a wine in every sense Sicilian.

See ya later for Pinochle.
I hope you'll be playing with a full deck, for a change.

9/11 and the Greenberg Familia
By Jerry Mazza
Online Journal Associate Editor

Democratic Underground Demopedia reports in Who Killed John O’Neill that at the time of 9/11, AIG, the world’s largest insurance company, and subsidiaries Marsh McLennan, ACE and Kroll, were run by the Greenberg family. With Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member Maurice “Hank” Greenberg as the AIG godfather, the Familia’s tentacles curled around the heart of the tragedy.

Hank’s son Jeffrey, a CFR member as well, was chairman of Marsh & McLennan, situated on floors throughout the North Tower of the World Trade Center as well as the top floors of the South Tower. Marsh also had ties to the CIA. Son Evan Greenberg, a CFR member, was CEO of ACE Limited, situated in Tower 7, which also contained AIG subsidiary Kroll, closely related to the CIA, also with an office in Tower 7.

Tower 7 also contained offices of the FBI, Department of Defense, IRS (which contained prodigious amounts of corporate tax fraud corporate, including Enron’s), US Secret Service, Securities & Exchange Commission (with more stock fraud records), and Citibank’s Salomon Smith Barney, the Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management and many other financial institutions.

Greenberg’s cousin, Alan “Ace” Greenberg, was former CEO of Bear Sterns, where the Bush family, Cheney family George Schultz, James Baker, et al, did business. It is the leading brokerage firm of the great and all-powerful Bush Familia.

Also reported by Democratic Underground, AIG’s Kroll “provided protection services,” among other things, to high level Americans at home and abroad. Kroll had military teams in their company and merged with Armor Holdings on August 23, 2001, adding Defence Systems Limited, another private military corporation, to their operation, and an ex-KGB team called Alpha Firm earlier acquired by Defense Systems Limited. These four teams could have been used on 9/11,
part of a “corporatizing” of black ops in tandem with military teams.

According to whistleblower Richard Grove, who worked as a senior manager for SilverStream Software on Marsh and AIG accounts, Kroll also managed the Enron fraud once Kenneth Lay stepped down.

Marsh, immediately after 9/11, established a specialized terrorism team called Marsh Crisis Consultancy (led by L. Paul Bremer III), adding the teams Control Risks Group, a British ex-SAS team and Versar, bio-terrorism and homeland defense team. These players could have known each other from 9/11, bringing in new assignments and profits.

Democratic Underground also reports, AIG allegedly was laundering drug money, and was involved in the Afghanistan oil and gas pipelines. Greenberg and the Adnan Khasshogi family allegedly benefited from the Afghanistan narcotics trade and interests in the oil and gas pipelines, as well.

Greenberg’s Law Firm Connections to Bush

According to, the Greenbergs were and are connected to the Bush Familia via their Miami-based law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, a 1,350-lawyer, full-service international firm. Here are a few connects . . .

1) G-T represented George W. Bush in the Bush-Gore 2000 Florida election vote recount.

2) They personally represent Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

3) They hired son of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Election Day 2000 -- after which Justice Scalia cast one of the 5 to 4 deciding votes that placed Bush in the White House.

4) They partially funded/sponsored a delegation to Israel by House-Senate Armed Services Committee members and government contractors to witness and be briefed on interrogations resistance procedures and torture techniques.

5) The firm has prominent administrative positions in Massachusetts 9/11 Fund, which also involves Bush family banking house Brown Brothers Harriman (the same BBH involved with Prescott Bush’s bankrolling the Nazis in World War II).

6) Traurig Greenberg works with 9-11 victims on planning their US government “hushmail/bribery estates.” That is, to receive the money, the victim’s family must sign an agreement never to sue the government for any reason. Victim-wife Ellen Mariani is currently being legally harassed for not signing and for holding the Bush government’s feet to the fire.

7) Bush still owes the Greenberg Traurig firm nearly $1 million for work done by dozens of lawyers and paralegals, leaving questions why a Republican candidate would hire a Democratic lawyer from a Democratic firm. See Greenberg Traurig link above for more scandals.

Greenberg’s Relationship to Larry Silverstein

On July 24, 2001, six weeks before 9/11, Larry Silverstein took control of the lease of all the WTC buildings. This followed the Port Authority decision on April 26.

According to, the three companies who originally insured the WTC were AIG, Marsh and ACE, all run as mentioned by the Greenbergs at the time. They then sold stakes of the original contract to their competition, a technique called reinsuring.

Once the Towers came down, the reinsurers got caught holding the bag. This would inextricably tie the Greenbergs to Silverstein and the larger conspiracy of 9/11. If they had no foreknowledge of events to occur, why would the Greenbergs have unloaded so many stakes in their contract?

According to Michel Chossudovsky in Financial Bonanza behind the 9/11 Tragedy, “On October 17, 2000, eleven months before 9/11, Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, of The Blackstone Group, L.P, purchased, from Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, the participating mortgage secured by World Trade Center, Building 7.1.” [Blackstone in 2000 also purchased a 50 percent stake in Universal Studios, producers of the myth-perpetuating Flight 93.]

“April 26, 2001 the Port Authority leased the WTC for 99 years to Silverstein Properties and Westfield America Inc.

“The transaction was authorised by Port Authority Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg. This transfer from the New York and New Jersey Port Authority was tantamount to the privatisation of the WTC Complex. The official press release described it as ‘the richest real estate prize in New York City history.’ The retail space underneath the complex was leased to Westfield America Inc.

“On 24 July 2001, 6 weeks prior to 9/11 Silverstein took control of the lease of the WTC following the Port Authority decision on April 26.

“Silverstein and Frank Lowy, CEO of Westefield Inc. took control of the 10.6 million-square-foot WTC complex.

"Lowy leased the shopping concourse called the Mall at the WTC, which comprised about 427,000 square feet of retail space.”

“Explicitly included in the agreement was that Silverstein and Westfield ‘were given the right to rebuild the structures if they were destroyed.'’

“In this transaction, Silverstein signed a rental contract for the WTC over 99 years amounting to 3.2 billion dollars in installments to be made to the Port Authority: 800 million covered fees including a down payment of the order of 100 million dollars. Of this amount, Silverstein put in 14 million dollars of his own money. The annual payment on the lease was of the order of 115 million dollars.

“In the wake of the WTC attacks, Silverstein is suing for some $7.1 billion in insurance money, double the amount of the value of the 99 year lease.” In fact, some $5 billion was actually returned, given the multiple court-case protests of the insurers.

“The mortgaging of the WTC was handled by The Blackstone Group, headed by Peter J. Peterson, current head of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The Blackstone Group also bought a piece of Kroll in 1993 at the very same time AIG took over majority control. Henry Kissinger sits on the board of the Blackstone Group.”

By his own admission Silverstein had Tower 7 pulled by controlled internal demolition eight hours after the first two hits. No plane hit Tower 7. There were two small fires in it that were under control. In fact, it takes weeks, months to set up a building to be pulled. So his order to “pull it” catches him in a huge lie. Tower 7 may have been the nexus of the operations. That may have been the real reason to pull it. In fact, it may have been set up weeks in advance with Towers 1 and 2 for demolition. Ironically, Tower 7 is the only tower that has been rebuilt, and more opulently than its predecessor, although tenancy is about 18 percent.

Towers Taken Down for Profit and to Blame Muslims

Given the involvement of the Greenbergs and Silverstein, and other commercial entities that stood to profit hugely, it is difficult to believe 9/11 occurred at the hands of 19 rag-tag Muslims with box-cutters and the help of their leader, Osama bin Laden, sitting in a cave somewhere in Afghanistan with his laptop and dialysis equipment. The real reasons behind 9/11 were financial greed and the willingness to demonize Muslims for the “Pearl Harbor-type” act that would instigate America to wage a war on terror, pursuing PNAC’s (Project for a New American Century) goal of World Hegemony.

The latest documentary on the WTC, The 911 Mysteries from, provides highly convincing proof that the buildings were taken down in six fatal steps. They involved the use of high-powered explosives, including thermite and/or thermate, with techniques more advanced than those of traditional controlled-demolition companies, most likely the military’s, given their bunker buster technology. The six steps are . . .

1. Pre-collapse sub-basement explosions
2. Pre-collapse interior blasts
3. Pre-collapse ground level explosions
4. Top level collapse initiation
5. Mid Collapse Squibs (explosions)
6. Final time-delayed rolls (explosions)

Without all these steps, the Towers could never have free-fallen in 10 seconds, the speed of gravity. Any obstacles or pancaking had to be eliminated otherwise the number of seconds of fall would increase dramatically. The documentary also reminds us that on February 13, 1975 there was a major fire on the 11th floor of the North Tower that did not topple it, though the loss was estimated at over $2 million, no mean event. Check it out.

It is possible that in 1996, when Securacom took over WTC security and installed a new $8.3 million security system, that the explosives and charges were also put in place. Sitting on the board of Securacom was the director Marvin Bush, George Bush’s younger brother.

In any case, this is patently the confluence of the military/industrial complex with a healthy dose of Wall Street, earning millions if not billions in put and call options on companies involved with the catastrophe, including airlines on the down (put) side and military suppliers on the up (call) side. In addition, there is the missing gold from the basement of Tower 4, $200 million of which was retrieved, and an untold amount stolen.

The real bottom line was that the Towers were two financial white elephants. And both Silverstein and Greenberg had to know that. The tenancy was dropping. They were out of date. And most dangerously, they were asbestos bombs, loaded with the dangerous building material when they were completed in 1972-73.

By law the buildings could not be taken down by internal demolition. And since it would cost a billion dollars or more to take the towers down beam by beam, it would be at great loss to the Port of Authority or its leaseholder. Thus the reasons are obvious to take WTC down in act of terror also a false-flag operation. Remember, the concept for the WTC Towers originated with the Nelson and David Rockefeller, members of the Council on Foreign Relations and among the world’s elites. A “New Pearl Harbor” would serve those interests well.

Additional Connections to Greenberg

John O’Neill, mentioned in the first paragraph, was the FBI anti-terror chief who spent years trying to track down bin Laden and “al Qaeda” members. At every point, he was stopped or frustrated by his superiors. Finally, O’Neill parted company with the FBI. Jerome Hauer, who formerly worked for Kroll, got him the job as chief of security at the WTC. On 9/11, O’Neill lost his life in the North Tower.

Mr. Hauer’s job as Kroll chief was also held by Michael Cherkasky, who came out of the New York County District Attorney’s Office, which also brought us Rudy Giuliani, Elliot Spitzer and Patrick Fitzgerald. Mr. Cherkasky also brought Mr. Spitzer into the NYC County DA’s office. Today Cherkasky is a substantial contributor to Spitzer’s campaign for New York State Governor. Cherkasky was bumped up to head Marsh McLennan in 2004.

As an aside, there were about 200 electrical engineers working in the World Trade Center around the time. Additionally, AMEC and Tully Construction played a major role in the clean up of Ground Zero and both have specialized controlled demolition companies.

Lastly, can you believe that one of the Council on Foreign Relations members who engaged President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran in a debate about the holocaust at CFR’s reception last week was none other than Hank Greenberg, who said he witnessed the Dachau camp as Germany fell? Could it all possibly be payback and then some?

Quas, was wondering if you'd ever turned up a Turkish speaker to do the translation on the Shoul thing. I might be able to locate on here if I am able to make a mental note which is doubtful.

Yo, Unkle Fester ! Great to hear from ya, old timer ! I got becalmed in the Great Chum Slick and I was hittin' the Nero pretty hard, so that Shoul thing kinda got past me. The link to the website is still up there, if you got a good Turkish hookah to smoke it out with. Be my guest! Lost track of History Worm about a coons' age ago. Boy did we ever used to go at it, eh ? But I seem to recall it was Claymore said he had a Turk friend that might take a look at it. Its a fabulous website, much of it available in English, and well worth the effort, for anyone looking for a total blast on Masonic tradition. But it was that one specific article on Eisenberg that I wanted translated most of all. Thanks for the follow up - Catch ya round, old timer !
