9/11 Was An Inside Job, Says Former President of Italy

from - Mon Dec 17, 2007 at 12:07:37 PST
In the November 30 issue of Corriere della Sera, Italy's oldest and most widely read newspaper, Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga stated that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.

"All the [intelligence services] of America and Europe...know well that the disastrous attack has been planned and realized from the Mossad, with the aid of the Zionist world in order to put under accusation the Arabic countries and in order to induce the western powers to take part ... in Iraq [and] Afghanistan."

Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who was first elected president of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide election to become president of Italy in 1985, remained President until 1992. More about this former "insider" and whistleblower:

Cossiga's tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment, and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio.

This was a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 1960s, 1970s and '80s.

Gladio's specialty was to carry out what they termed "false flag" operations-terror attacks that were blamed on their domestic and geopolitical opposition.

Another translation from the Italian article:

From circles around Palazzo Chigi, nerve center of direction of Italian intelligence, it is noted that the non-authenticity of the video is testified from the fact that Osama bin Laden in it 'confessed' that Al Qaeda would have been the author of the attack of the 11 September to the Twin Towers in New York, while all of the democratic circles of America and of Europe, with in the forefront those of the Italian centre-left, now know well that the disastrous attack was planned and realized by the American CIA and Mossad with the help of the Zionist world to put under accusation the Arabic Countries and to persuade the Western powers to intervene in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In March 2001, Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra stated, in sworn testimony, "You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: to force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."

Cossiga first expressed his doubts about 9-11 in 2001, and is quoted by 9-11 researcher Webster Tarpley saying "The mastermind of the attack must have been a sophisticated mind, provided with ample means not only to recruit fanatic kamikazes, but also highly specialized personnel. I add one thing: it could not be accomplished without infiltrations in the radar and flight security personnel."

Coming from a widely respected former head of state, Cossiga's assertion that the 9-11 attacks were an inside job and that this is common knowledge among global intelligence agencies is illuminating.

It is one more eye-opening confirmation that has not been mentioned by America�s propaganda machine in print or on TV.

Nevertheless, because of his experience and status in the world, Cossiga cannot be discounted as a crackpot.

"Lieberman, when asked about his 2006 campaign, said it was important he had defeated the pro-Lamont, antiwar part of the Democratic party because once the 2008 Presidential campaign came around the Lamont part of the party would have trouble with "the American people, who know we're at war with a brutal enemy who attacked us on 9/11."

"We are at war with a brutal enemy who attacked us on 9/11."

Really, Senator Lieberman, and who would that be?

Are we back to looking for Bin Laden in Afghanistan? Have we decided to hell with Musharraf and we've invaded Pakistan to track down Al-Qaeda? Have we deposed the royal family in Saudi Arabia, where most of the hijackers came from, and we've decided to impose democracy on that country?

I'm not in favor of invading Pakistan or deposing the Saudi Arabian royal family, but as ideas they at least CONNECT with 9/11.

But Senator Lieberman didn't mean any of that, did he?

He meant to imply (to mislead, distort, to lie)... that our invading Iraq, a country that did NOT attack us, is connected to the 19 terrorist hijackers who attacked us on 9/11.

And it is not connected, is it, Senator Lieberman, or Senator McCain?

We were not attacked by a country. We were attacked by members of an organization. By 19 individuals who belonged to the terrorist group Al-Qaeda, which had safe haven in Afghanistan (not in Iraq!).

Class, what countries were the individual terrorists from?

Answer: "Fifteen of the attackers were from Saudi Arabia, two from the United Arab Emirates, one from Egypt, and one from Lebanon."

Class, and how many on that list were from Iraq?

Answer: "16."

No, Vice President Cheney, that is the wrong answer, please sit down again. What? You're going to gather your own intelligence to analyze this list? Very well. Only spend just a few billion dollars on it, alright?

In the lead up to the war, Cheney and Bush and others spent LOTS of time misleading the American people about the non-existent connection between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 attacks.

But the administration a couple of years ago let go of trying to push that connection (except for Cheney).

And on TV Bush even once admitted there was no connection, which he said in a mumbled, annoyed voice when asked the question explicitly by some reporter during a press conference. (Asked long after we'd been there, of course).

But here is Senator Lieberman SELLING THAT LIE again. And McCain smiled benignly in the background.

I mean most of the liars in the Republicans party who continue to hawk this war and claim it's for our safety no longer try to tie Iraq with 9/11.

They usually do the song and dance about "the war on terror" and we have to fight it everywhere, and now there IS Al-Qaeda in Iraq, though it wasn't there before we invaded. And if we don't fight them over there, we'll have to fight them here. (That last bellicose bromide is said often by McCain.)

I just found Lieberman intoning "the American people... know we're at war with a brutal enemy who attacked us on 9/11" to be enraging. Enraging. We've gone past that lie.

Japan attacked us at Pearl Harbor. Then we attacked back. We didn't react to Japan's attack by bombing Korea, did we? Or by invading China? Or by attacking Connecticut, who elected the dense and smiling Mr. Lieberman. Elected him over and over again.

Bush and Cheney sold this war first for our self-defense (we were in DANGER from Saddam, and we had to act IN THE NEXT TEN MINUTES OR ELSE). Then when there were no WMD's, the justification changed to we were creating democracy there. Then we were babysitting a civil war (well other people said that, Bush kept saying it wasn't true). Now it's calmer there, but it's hardly safe, and so what is the result of that? Now we're to be there for ever and ever? At billions a week, or is it a billion a minute by now?

I find it appalling and shocking that we are in a war, with men and women dying and being horribly maimed, when it was undertaken under false pretenses. And when as many of us believe, our being there as an occupier makes us less and less safe, and creates more terrorists. It's not a good bargain. You break it, you own it, said ex-Secretary of State Colin Powell, referring to the Pottery Barn Rule. How I wish we had invaded Pottery Barn. Then at least we'd have some nice merchandise, and could use some of it to give as Christmas presents.

And Lieberman just re-brought out that old, biggest lie about the war again, the supposed connection between our Iraq and 9/11. Enough with that lie.

Senator Lieberman is despicable."

First, a few questions-

If this is a "set up" as you claim, why do you only call the Republican's liars? Do you really think something of this magnitude does not include Dems., too?

"All the intelligence agencies in Europe & America knew about the planned attacks", (according to the Italian president). If all the intelligence agencies the world-over were supposedly wrong about WMD'S, what makes this information accurate?

Maybe Iraq did become a haven for Al-Quida but at least they are all there and not here.

Yes, we did to attack "in 10 minutes" not WAIT for years when it would have been too late.

And when Pearl Harbor was attacked we DID NOT attack Japan back. Japan WAS NOT the first target. American forces were sent to Europe FIRST to fight in Germany.
This you did not KNOW???

They lied, they lied, they lied - is that your impression Shoes, of Ozone Al on foreign ground screaming of how our Pres. lied with his eyes and veins protruding from his raging, angry face?

FUNNY HOW some stupid people really believe that the government has the time & manpower to listen in our their everyday phone conversations & think their privacy is taken away yet plaster all of their personal information all over the internet...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people are concerned with waterboarding terrorist for 35 seconds when those same terrorists strap themselves with bombs, blow up innocent victims, hang our troops burnt bodies from bridges,etc...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people are outraged because the name of Valarie Plame (covert???) was leaked yet are not outraged when The New York Slimes has many times leaked secret information on their front pages...

And speaking of Mrs. Plame, FUNNY HOW HER husband was the one sent (by who & WHY him) to research the "yellowcake". Teams of special agents the world over couldn't get it straight yet this man manages to "talk to a few locals" in a "few days" and convinces everyone that his information was gospel word

FUNNY HOW some stupid people think that George Bush committed a crime when he fired attorney generals yet many presidents did the same in the past (oh, that's right, he didn't do it WHEN the other president's did, hence a crime)...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people think that Bush lied about the level threat during Katrina. And just what would be the purpose of that? Oops, forgot. It's because Bush hates blacks...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people don't believe our President when he warns of another country being a threat but believes the asshole head of the country that has vowed to wipe western civiliation off of the face of the earth...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people blame Bush when the economy is bad but give him no credit when it is good...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people blame Bush when the price of gas goes up but give him no credit when the prices go down...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people bitch about Halliburton receiving no bid contracts (especially Dems., particulary loud-mouth Murtha) when Murtha receives hundreds of million of dollars for his pet projects in Johnstown, Pa., (along with lots of other senators and their pet projects). For the first 12 YEARS after one of his pet project centers was formed in Johnstown (Concurrent) they DID NOT have to compete for contracts. Maybe that is why Mr. Loud-Mouth complains about all the money spent in Iraq. It leaves less for him to hog up (hence, King of Pork)...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people are so desperate that they bring up an issue of a lie about the Clinton's destroying White House property before they left...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people think we should sit back and wait (yet again) to be hit before we go on the attack...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people believe that all of the intelligence ALL OVER THE WORLD were wrong about WMD's in Iraq. Does anyone think that maybe during the months & months of warnings we gave them that we were going to attack (in our RUSH to war) bought them time to move those WMD's...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people forget that MANY leading Dems. spoke out about how Saddam was a grave threat & how he was capable of building nuclear weapons WAY BEFORE George Bush was ever president...

FUNNY HOW some stupid people STILL cannot accept the fact that Gore and Kerry LOST so the next best thing they can do is to declare war on the President-eveything he says will be a lie and everything he does will be a crime. Easy enough. Easy to accuse and point the finger and place the blame. Much tougher to defend yourself. After all, we know the bad news always grabs the headlines. Remember the Duke rape case? Easy for her, tougher for the rich white boys. Anybody crying RACISM here???...

FUNNY HOW some stupid media people made the war a first story when things were bad but now that the war is going better & violence is down not so much of a big story anymore...

FUNNY HOW the Dems. were going to end this war because that is what "the people want". The Dems. were voted in because people were tired of the WAY the war was being fought NOT because they wanted the US to immediately pull out.
But since the Dems. sold their souls to MoveOn., Code Pink, the Daily Kos, George Soros,etc.,they are caught between a rock and a hard place. They can't seem to make the anti-war far-left crowd happy because they can't end the war (in spite of the fact, they "think" that is what the people really want)...

FUNNY? No, not really. Disgusting is a much description the thses STUPID people...

Now, before you label this man a moron note that he is a top pentageon advisor on counter-terrorism strategy, a former Green Beret, former CIA operative, THE principal strategist for THE biggest covert program in CIA history.

I have a question, Shoes. Al-Quida may be responsible for the killing of Benazir Bhutto. Is this the same Al-Quida that the Bush administration uses to SCARE us with or is this a different one?

Shoes4Industry said...

That's a great question, Lee. We will probably never know.

We would suggest going to see (if you haven't already) the movie "Charlie Wilson's War." It might give you some insight into how the US was responsible for creating an environment in Afghanistan after the Russians were defeated, where al Qaeda could flourish.

Sharing a recent Letter to the Editor I read in the newspaper -

The tragic assassination of Benazir Bhutto has reminded tens of millions of amnesiacs in our country that there still is a war on terror going on. The Democrats and their outriders in the liberal media are hugely disappointed, because when the issues of terrorism and national security domiate attention, it cuts against their plans for a coronation on Jan. 20, 2009.

To his everlasting credit, George W. Bush has kept our nation free from an Islamic terrorist attack for more than 2,300 days. For the last 365 of those days, the U.S.Army and Marine Corps have equaled in Iraq the turnaround Gen. Matthew Ridgway accomplished in Korea. Korea ended in stalemate; Iraq now seems destined to become much more than that. We are winning the war.

The Democrats counter this good news with denial, treasonous leaks, undermining attacks and, as a last resort, silence. But the ill-starred Madame Bhutto went and got herself killed, and silence no longer is an option. At least not for the next few news cycles.

Shoes - "No comment WTC7? Here's my comment"
When will SOMEONE, ANYONE find SOMEONE or ANYONE that was involved in the "inside job" that have managed to have never leaked this before and STILL stays silent years later? This conspiracy you believe had to have involved a hell of alot of people. WHO are they, WHERE are they?

How about the same al-Qaeda that is responsible for attacks all over the WORLD. The same al-Qaeda that you claim is NOT a threat, the same al-Qaeda that you claim the Bush administration uses just to try to SCARE us. The same al-Qaeda that you claim doesn't even exist.

"Who was the President on 9/11?"
Yes, it was Bush. But that attack certainly was not planned in only 7months. It happened on Bush's watch BUT it was PLANNED on Clinton's watch. But since being popular and well-liked was Clinton's sole purpose, he failed the do the job of breaking up the 9/11 plot.
