At 11am, on the morning of 9/11, the Bush administration had announced that Osama was behind the attacks.
by Michel Chossudovsky
This article below entitled Who is Osama bin Laden? was drafted on September 11, 2001. It was first published on the Global Research website on the evening of September 12, 2001.
Since 2001, it has appeared on numerous websites. The original September 11, 2001 posting is one of the most widely read articles on the internet, pertaining to Al Qaeda.
From the outset, the objective was to use 9/11 as a pretext for launching the first phase of the Middle East War, which consisted in the bombing and occupation of Afghanistan.
Within hours of the attacks, Osama bin Laden was identified as the architect of 9/11. On the following day, the “war on terrorism” had been launched. The media disinformation campaign went into full gear.
Also on September 12, less than 24 hours after the attacks, NATO invoked for the first time in its history “Article 5 of the Washington Treaty – its collective defence clause” declaring the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon “to be an attack against all NATO members.”
What happened subsequently, with the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq is already part of history. Iran and Syria constitute the next phase of the US adminstration’s military roadmap.
9/11 remains the pretext and justification for waging a war without borders.
Mike McRoberts investigates whether our elite SAS troops in Afghanistan have taken prisoners and handed them over to authorities known for torture. 60 Minutes has exclusive footage from Afghanistan, shot by freelance journalist Jon Stephenson, who has been pursuing this story for years. Stephenson will show you evidence that he says points to New Zealand’s complicity in the mistreatment of innocent people. Watch this story now. Take No Prisoners
On Wednesday 6th April 2011, in closed session, read to Select Committee on the 8th floor Parliament ‘Beehive’ buildings Wellington, the following statement concerning the relationship between New Zealand’s Security Intelligence requirements, the Bill, and use of the 911 War on Terror as mandate for expansion of powers.
It is offered for the record here, because the papers and reference work submitted were tabled, therefore are now on NZ Parliamentary record.

Submission on the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service Amendment Bill
My name is Roger Morris. I am an artist , and I wish to speak toward power becoming more secretive, and its practitioners less accountable in a very dangerous world.
I note the advice of the Privacy Commissioner that review of security laws should take up to three years.
As far as I can judge, in according these POWERS to our State Security Service, we are relying on a trust that operational and Director behavior will prove honorable to the task, an honor historically proven susceptible to centralized power and external influence.[War Terror, Ahmed ZAOUI],
I recognize a violent world within which Intelligence allegiances, militarism and secrecy play an ever wider, ever more personally invasive role. Not necessarily protective of individual citizens rights involved in genuine advocacy.
A world dominated by the central narrative WAR on TERROR.
From which, in essence, the needs of this Bill derive.
A narrative now widely understood to be deceptive.[Weapons of Mass Destruction.]
Within this, New Zealand’s part becomes less its own and more one in alliance with a dominating world view. That world view encompasses reduction of Habeas Corpus rights on a global citizenship. Has mandated authority for itself to conduct illegal Wars, pre-emptive strikes, Occupation, Torture, Extraordinary Rendition and targeted assassination of suspects without trial.
This SIS Bill appears to streamline interoperability and compliance with outside agencies involved in the war on terror.
It appears to narrow power to the singular [Director], with no, or lesser, independent or Judicial review.
5AA The Director may delegate powers to a specified class of employees of the service.
Where is that class specified?
It is conceivable other intelligence services could be delegated power under this specified class to act within NZ Jurisdiction, who could also, in turn, purport or have purport, another person entirely unknown to act within NZ Jurisdiction.
5AA A person purporting to act under any delegation under this section is, in the absence of proof to the contrary, presumed to be acting in accordance with the terms of the delegation.
What if they are not?
Why would a person ‘purporting’ to act under delegation be presumed to be acting under delegation?
Of lesser concern, 5AAB allows for a director to initiate delegation, but not necessarily notify the next director.
However, these are material questions probably easily answered.
My primary concern is, that by enacting the BILL – even though I can see it as proper with regard combatting genuine high crime – notwithstanding that, but with regard the War on TERROR, by signing, we as a nation show further acceptance of and compliance with another BEHAVIOR altogether.
It is THAT connection that disturbs me.
If we accept and participate in WAR based on false premise – actually known deceptions [WMD’s. No fore-knowledge of 911];
a WAR declared illegal by the United Nations; a WAR that has killed and maimed and displaced millions of people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan; now rapidly SPREADING; if we use that impetus – the WAR on TERROR – to empower our own state security apparatus to strengthen ITs power to surveil its own population,
what does that say to the purpose of surveillance?
In the world of technology and high crime, as said, I have nothing against enabling Law agencies tools to fight criminality at these levels – legitimate concerns balanced –
But the WAR on TERROR is something ELSE. It is a Fear based Narrative constructed to facilitate Wars of Aggression and used to justify greater State Secrecy and powers of Surveillance/information gathering worldwide, and now here through this Bill.
It is also a fast Devolving Fabrication. One built upon the Greater Deception of 911 itself. Something our Parliament has not confronted in any perceivable manner, but,
as the growing Forensic and other evidence gathered in the past ten years clearly show,
one which HAS to be contended with by the Representatives of the people of New Zealand, if we are going to continue to use it as justification for expansion of security LAW .

I wish to place on record the following items to back my statements that the ‘War on Terror’ is known Fabrication , and the 911 Commission Report an unproven THEORY needing immediate International re- Investigation ≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈≈

That “Weapons of Mass Destruction” were known by the Bush administration, through its intelligence and other agencies NOT to exist, but that that information was suppressed and the WMD lie was constructed to advance and conduct the Illegal Wars in Afghanistan and IRAQ. Now Pakistan Yemen and where else will be known in time.

Chapter 7, pp 89 ” It was not for lack of trying by those of us at mid-level, below the leadership. We raised the alarms. Alas, Republicans at the command level chose not to act.Instead, throughout the summer of 2001, the U.S. threatened Iraq with military retaliation “worse than anything they’d experienced before,” if a 9/11 style of attack occurred. Yes, U.S. intelligence abhorred the concept of a 9/11 attack, including my own handlers[Dr. Richard Fuisz, and Paul HOVEN]. But a handful of puppeteers controlling the stage at the highest levels of Government aggressively prepped some factions of U.S. intelligence to accept War with Iraq as the inevitable outcome of a 9/11 strike. In which case, they made no effort to block 9/11, so that they could fulfill their quest. It’s critical to understand that Intelligence is not a monolithic mega-entity but a community of factions, broken down into small teams. Once advance warnings about the World Trade Center enter into the equation, it becomes entirely conceivable that some different team within a competing faction, called an orphan, might have entered the world Trade Center in the midnight hours, and positioned explosives throughout the buildings, with the intention of maximizing the demolition impact whenever the hijacked airplanes struck the buildings.”

Foreknowledge of Building 7’s Collapse
Dr. Graeme MacQueen
Even though World Trade Center Building 7 is said to have been the first steel-framed building in history to undergo total collapse due to fire, there were many people who knew the building was going to collapse long before it did. In this presentation, the evidence for this peculiar foreknowledge will be summarized and its significance discussed. The argument will be made that it is impossible to explain this foreknowledge on the basis of the collapse hypothesis offered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The only hypothesis that explains this foreknowledge is the controlled demolition hypothesis.
Yet another professional discusses his analysis of WTC dust, where he found evidence of nanothermite, a military grade explosive many scientists, physicists and engineers now believe may have been used to bring down the Twin Towers and WTC 7.
