THE SCO AND 9-11: Part 2 (of a 2 Part Series)

(The following is extracted from the original report prepared by the author in August 2001. A few more notes have been added to the original report, in September 2001)


The landlocked state of Afghanistan sits at the crossroads of Central Asia, the Indian sub-continent and the Middle East. It is geo-strategically and economically important for a number of reasons. Afghanistan’s location has always been significant. It is an ideal place to create a wedge between the major Eurasian powers and to establish a permanent military presence for future operations in Eurasia.

 Secondly, Afghanistan also is a doorstep into energy-rich Central Asia, which bypasses Iran, Russia and China. This is important because an outside power such as the US can use Afghanistan to circumvent these rival powers. A pipeline corridor from the gas fields of Turkmenistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan has been a major project for the US oil companies for years. The American oil company, Unocal (a Rockefeller group company) and the Taliban were negotiating for this pipeline, (in this regard, Hamid Karzai was a former employee of Unocal.  And the US special envoy to both Afghanistan and later Iraq was none other than Zalmay Khalilzad, was also employed by Unocal).

 Once built, this pipeline, called TAPLine (Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan) will end at a port on Karachi’s coastline. It would be a major victory over competing Russia, Chinese, and Iranian energy interests in the in the Caspian Basin and Central Asia. This would be the American’s second geo-strategic victory after the opening of the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan(BTC) pipeline, another line that circumvents Russia and Iran.

 Thirdly, Afghanistan constitutes a major area of opium production. This is significant, since illegal narcotics are third in terms of global turnover, after the trade in oil and arms. It is notable that Us Secretary of State, Collin Powell paid the Taliban a sum of $20m in February 2001, as a “reward” for a job well done in ‘eradicating opium production’! (When the US invaded Afghanistan, opium production increased drastically. The income from this went to prop up the financial system on Wall Street. The effect was felt within 2 years, when the US stock markets began rising from early 2003).

 Fourthly, Afghanistan is a ‘resource-rich’ country. It has gas, and loads of other minerals. Geological surveys conducted by the Soviets in the 70s and 80s, confirmed the existence of very large deposits of copper, gold, uranium, iron ore, chrome, lithium and much, much more. It has the 2nd largest reserves of Lithium in the world. Lithium is a key raw material in the manufacture of batteries for laptops, and electric cars. (A survey done by the US Geological Survey) in 2009 reports the value of Afghanistan’s treasure trove at more than $1 trillion!

The Taliban

After the Soviet Union withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989, the country descended into a brutal civil war. In late 1995, a group of religious scholars had enough. They got together and thus was born the Taliban. Within 2 years, they managed to secure control of most of the country.

At around this time, Unocal began negotiations with the Taliban for transit rights to build a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan (with the 3rd largest gas reserves in the world) to Pakistan. Both the CIA and the ISI , along with Saudi Intelligence, backed the Taliban.

The Taliban were romanced by Unocal, being invited to the White House, and given a VIP tour of its offices in Houston, Texas.

 By mid-June 2001, the negotiations were turning ugly. Besides a transit fee, the Taliban wanted Unocal to build infrastructure in Afghanistan. Predictably, Unocal refused. Did you know that there is not even 1 kilometer of any railway lines within Afghanistan!

 At a last-ditch attempt at resolving matters, a final meeting was held in Berlin, Germany, in July 2001. The conference was a failure. Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary, Nazir Naik, who was present at this meeting was told by his American counterparts to pass on a message to the Taliban. This was the message; “Tell the Taliban that we can shower them with a carpet of gold, or we can bury them under bombs! “. If there was going to be no deal, then the Americans were planning to invade Afghanistan by not later than mid-October, to get into country before winter began.  Why this desperation? Three things i.e. the first was the ongoing economic and financial collapse in the US.

The SCO Forms

In 1996, Russian President Boris Yeltsin was very upset regarding American moves in the Caucasus. He wanted to form a counter to the US moves in Central Asia. He met the Chinese President, and this resulted in the formation of the Shanghai 5- it would be the forerunner of the Shanghai Cooperating Organization – the SCO, which would take its final form in June 2001.

 With the SCO being formed in June 2001, a new urgency took root in Washington. Do recall that one of America’s prime aim in Eurasia was to make sure that “no group of nations come together”, which could oust America from the region. This budding potential had to be stopped.

 Finally, when the Bush Administration assumed office in January 2001, the US military budget shot up by a crazy amount, between March and September. Most of this budget went to pay for new military equipment.  This huge increase in the Pentagon’s spending implied that America was gearing up for a major war somewhere in the world.

 The second was the formation of the SCO a month earlier, in June.

And thirdly, was to forestall China in going forward with its infrastructure investments in building a deep-sea port at Gwadar, on the coast of Baluchistan. The port at Gwadar has been under discussions for many years, but it was only in March, 2001, that China agreed to be the sole sponsor.

 A look at the map will indicate the strategic importance of Gwadar.  It has been a port since ancient times. A deep-sea port at Gwadar could provide one link in China’s overall strategic plan to develop its vast, but impoverished and land-locked western provinces. Gwadar could also become an alternative oil router to China, from the Strait of Hormuz.  China was desperately looking for alternative routes to transport its oil from the Middle East to China, by-passing the “chokepoint” of the US-controlled Malacca Strait, next to Singapore.

Gwadar could offer Central Asian nations a less costly outlet for their oil than current Western operations. The long-discussed Iran-India natural gas pipeline project could also pass through Gwadar. This could also lead to building an oil pipeline and a oil refinery.

  The Pentagon is demanding some kind of control over the 1,200 km Gwadar-area coast. The Pentagon does not want to encourage any major construction, either near the Strait of Hormuz.

America was in a corner, and was desperate to nip this in the bud. The go-ahead was given to start the invasion of Afghanistan. The key was the announcement by the Pentagon in late August that it has decided to move 60,000 troops from Europe to Asia. See article.

Back in America, the economic and financial sectors were in free fall.

The Party is over for the Dollar

There is a red alert for the dollar. For the first time in 2001, the dollar fell 10% against other major currencies, (remember the Iraq-Euro deal). And this is only the beginning. There are increasing signs that the huge capital inflows to the US from abroad that have protected the heavily indebted American economy from collapse for some time have slowed down in recent weeks.

 It is clear that not many people   realize what a dollar crash will mean: the bankruptcy of the entire world financial system. The huge current account deficit of the US – which amounted to over $450 billion in 2000 – has left the US vulnerable to a pullout of capital, which could be caused by a sharp downturn in the US economy.

And the dollar, which has been backed by the political and military power of the US, has begun to see an outflow of capital, which is quickening. The dollar, has until now, been held up by a $500 billion inflow of capital, so a very strong tidal shift is underway (Once again, due to the Iraq-Euro deal). This outflow has been signaled in some of the European press, but is now generally becoming known.

 Japanese investors are no longer investing the proceeds of their investments in the US, but taking the money home. Similar moves are happening with European investors. The truth is, that a dramatic collapse in the dollar’s value presages the collapse of the entire financial system, already rotten to the core, and utterly bankrupt. 90% of all transactions are denominated in dollars.

 Every country which is hooked into the “floating-exchange-rate” regime – which means most nations of the world – will be devastated by a dollar collapse. A report presented by the Jerome Levy Institute had some useful analysis; “Many things are converging now. Increasing number of households is no longer able to keep up debt payments. The bad loans in the banking systems are growing. The net inflow into the US cannot be maintained. In sum, all the ingredients are now present which normally characterize the inception of a self-reinforcing credit implosion.”

 Russia is getting ready for a dollar crash. On August 25, the Russian government froze all exports of gold and strategic metals. It implemented this law to bolster its own central bank gold reserves, in order to prepare for a stronger gold-backed ruble. As the dollar collapses, the ruble will become a gold currency.

 What is making a bad situation worse is the denial of this state of economy and finance by politicians in the US. These denials are a greater danger than the economic collapse itself. Nothing will be done. Or, do these lunatics have planned something we don’t know?

Currently, the Eurasian continent has been moving into a step-by-step economic rejuvenation, which would make Eurasia a power. The core development of Eurasia revolved around building inter-connectedness (or a Eurasian Land Bridge), which would connect the two ends of Eurasia with each other, through the Central Eurasian region. This development has been re-named the BRI today. A Eurasian Land Bridge would lessen the strangle hold that the maritime powers (such as the US Navy) holds over the maritime trade routes, and if implemented, would have the potential to reduce the strangle hold that the US Navy currently holds over its economic rivals, with a resulting decline in their global dominance.  These two networks see themselves as a maritime power to rule the world. And they see such development as a threat in the long-term, to their continued ability to rule this planet, as a maritime, financial power.  One needs to revisit the book “ The Grand Chessboard “ By Zbigniew Vrzezinski, and pull a few quotes :-

1. “For America, the chief geopolitical prize is Eurasia – – – America’s global primacy is directly dependent on how long and how effectively its preponderance on the Eurasian continent is sustained”;

“In this context, how America ‘manages ‘ Eurasia is critical. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world’s most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa’s subordination – – – “.

“About 75% of the world’s people live in Eurasia, and most of the world’s physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for about 60% (now 75%) of the worlds GNP and about 75% of the world’s known energy resources. Eurasia is also the location of most of the world’s politically assertive and dynamic states. All but one of the world’s nuclear powers are located in Eurasia. The world’s two most populous aspirants to regional domination are global influence are Eurasian. All of the world’s political and economic challengers to American primacy are Eurasian”.

 “In brief, for the US, Eurasian geo-strategy involves the purposeful management of geo-strategically dynamic states – – – to put it into terminology that goes back to the most brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geo-strategy are to :-

1. Maintain security dependence among the vassals (the EU, Korea, and Japan)

2. To keep tributaries pliant and protected (the above plus others such as Israel, the Arab world)

3. To keep the barbarians from coming together (Russia, China, Iran).

Maritime Power vs Land-Based Powers

Look at the map below. Up until the 15th Century, the two outer ends of Eurasia were connected by the Silk Route running from China to Europe, via central Eurasia (Turkey and Central Asia). Trade was conducted overland. When the Ottoman Empire came into being in 1453, European states such as Portugal, Spain, France and Britain began searching for new routes to the east via the seas. Thus, began the rise of the maritime powers. By the 19th century, Britain became the dominant global power due to its control over the maritime routes. In the meantime, the over-land corridor between China and Europe withered away. Further, Britain would not allow any threat to its Empire by allowing any Eurasian power to build such transportation corridors that would threaten its hold over international trade. Even today, most of the world’s trade (90%) is conducted over maritime routes. Even the First World War was precipitated by Germany building a railway line from Berlin to Baghdad. The British Empire ruled the seas, and this fact enabled its domination as a global power. British power declined by the 1930s, only to be replaced by another rising maritime power- the United States, which would become a dominant global power- which is now being challenged by several Eurasian nations.

 The US could not allow these Eurasian powers from coming together. And so, the Rockefeller family put into motion a series of events, starting from 9/11 to the Invasion of Afghanistan, in order to neutralize this Eurasian threat to their dominance of Eurasia.

 Therefore, we see such Rockefeller agents such as Henry Kissinger and Zbigniew Brzezinski who say “break it up’ and the only way to do that is to start a war. In the last century, the world has witnessed two such wars over this issue. The British organized World War One to prevent France, Germany, Russia, and the Ottoman Empire from cooperating around such ideas as the Trans-Siberian Railroad, or the Berlin-Baghdad Railroad. World War 2 started as a geopolitical war. New York and London had worked together to put Hitler into power in January 1933, with the intent that Hitler would attack Western Europe and the Soviet Union. Why? To blow up Eurasia. And they succeeded brilliantly. We are now headed for the potential THIRD geopolitical war in a hundred years. Both the networks want to start this, to prevent the nations of Central Asia as being a fulcrum point for bringing East Asia and Western Europe into economic harmony.

The question is how would they be able to achieve that? One of the key weapons for them is Israel. They could induce Israel to start a war in the Middle East, which Israel could not win, now. They have the ability to win a war, BUT THEY COULD NOT OCCUPY AND HOLD TERRITORY. They would be destroyed by the attempt to occupy and hold adverse territory. They would be forced to go nuclear, which would be sufficient to throw the whole region into flames for decades.

 The other option is to cause a terrorist attack on American soil – a mini “Pearl Harbor”-, a shocking incident, or series of incidents, which would then be blamed on Muslims. This would give the Americans a pretext to bomb and occupy certain areas of the Middle East, as a first step in taking physical control of the region, the very heart of Eurasia. This would provide an ideal grip on the throat of the world’s oil supplies, thus threatening the economic existence of both Asia and Europe. This would be a prelude to attaining financial, economic and political supremacy over all these regions, thus maintaining their grip on global power.

At the same time, Israel would be able to expand its physical size, as it would not have attention focused on itself. The link between a weakened financial system, and an aggressive and expanding Israel is too strong to ignore.

The Event

On September 11, 2001, at 8.45 am, in New York City, a hijacked plane crashed into one of the World Trade Center twin towers. Less than 20 minutes later, a second plane crashed into the second tower. A short while later, a third hijacked plane crashed into the Pentagon building in Washington. Simultaneously, a car bomb went off outside the State Department building in Washington. Not long thereafter, a fourth plane crashed into the grounds in Pennsylvania.

 It was, without doubt, a shocking event. Played live on TV networks to a global audience, it held the entire world glued to their TV sets. Immediately, the first suspects were Muslim groups, most notably Osama bin Laden.

 So, the question is WHO DID IT?

An attack by an outside power would be dangerous to them. Nobody has, as yet, defeated America in war. So, it was an inside job.

 Did you know that the World Trade Center was built in 1970?  It was pushed through by the Governor of New York State (at that time, Nelson Rockefeller), and financed by a consortium of banks led by Chase Manhattan, the Rockefeller family bank, headed at that time by David. These towers were nicknamed “Nelson” and “David”!

At one level, these attacks were meant to be symbolic – The Pentagon, State Department, and Wall Street. These represented symbols of American power. We can understand the first two targets. But why specifically the World Trade Center? Here are the reasons:-

 The World Trade center complex was operating at a loss for many years. It was sold to a Manhattan property mogul, Silverman, a few months earlier. Secondly, In April 2000, the dot-com bubble burst. This created a rising vacancy in the commercial real estate market in Manhattan, and other urban areas within the US.

 With the knowledge that the overall property market was in decline within the US, the Rockefellers knew that they had to hold up the Manhattan property values. The US commercial real estate markets always followed the Manhattan commercial real estate market. By bringing down the two towers, in addition to building no 7(which was not hit by any plane, but still collapsed in the same way as the  twin towers!), this created a removal of a lot of office space. Presto! No more vacancies. This held up the real estate values within Manhattan, and the rest of America.

  CIA Agent Confesses On Deathbed: ‘We Blew Up WTC7 On 9/11’

By Baxter Dmitry   July 14, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – 79-year-old retired CIA agent, Malcom Howard, has made a series of astonishing claims since being released from hospital in New Jersey on Friday and told he has weeks to live. Mr. Howard claims he was involved in the “controlled demolition” of World Trade Center 7, the third building that was destroyed on 9/11. Mr. Howard, who worked for the CIA for 36 years as an operative, claims he was tapped by senior CIA agents to work on the project due to his engineering background, and early career in the demolition business. Trained as a civil engineer, Mr. Howard became an explosives expert after being headhunted by the CIA in early 1980s. Mr. Howard says has extensive experience in planting explosives in items as small as cigarette lighters and as large as “80 floor buildings.” The 79-year-old New Jersey native says he worked on the CIA operation they dubbed “New Century” between May 1997 and September 2001, during a time he says the CIA “was still taking orders from the top.” Mr. Howard says he was part of a cell of 4 operatives tasked with ensuring the demolition was successful. Mr. Howard says the World Trade Center 7 operation is unique among his demolitions, as it is the only demolition that “we had to pretend wasn’t a demolition job”. He claims he had no problem going through with the deception at the time, because “when you are a patriot, you don’t question the motivation of the CIA or the White House. You assume the bigger purpose is for a greater good. They pick good, loyal people like me, and it breaks my heart to hear the shit talk.” But even he admits that now, looking back, “Something wasn’t right.” “No good has come from this. This isn’t the America we envisioned.” Explaining how the building was bought down, Mr. Howard says, “It was a classic controlled demolition with explosives. We used super-fine military grade nanothermite composite materials as explosives. The hard part was getting thousands of pounds of explosives, fuses and ignition mechanisms into the building without causing too much concern. But almost every single office in the Building 7 was rented by the CIA, the Secret Service, or the military, which made it easier.” Mr. Howard explains that WTC 7 was “loaded with explosives in strategic places” in the month leading up to the day that changed the course of American history. On September 11th, while the North and South towers burned, fuses were ignited in World Trade Center 7, and nanothermite explosions hollowed out the building, destroying the steel structure, removing the reinforcements, and allowing the office fires to tear through the rest of the building, hollowing it out like a shell. World Trade Center 7 collapsed into its own footprint at 5:20pm, seven hours after the destruction of WTC 1 and 2. The building shocked witnesses by coming down at the speed of freefall, indicating that it encountered zero resistance on the way down. Mr. Howard and his colleagues had done their job. “When the building came down, it was such a rush. Everything went exactly to plan. It was so smooth. Everybody was evacuated. Nobody was hurt in WTC 7. We were celebrating. We kept watching replays of the demolition, we had the whiskey and cigars out, and then all of a sudden the strangest thing happened. We all started to worry that it looked a bit too smooth. We watched the tape again and again and again and we started to get paranoid. It looked like a controlled demolition. We thought shit, people are going to question this. And then we heard that people from the street were reporting that they heard the explosions during the afternoon. When we were told that the BBC botched their report and announced to the world that the building collapsed 20 minutes before it actually did… At that point we really thought the gig was up.” According to the official 9/11 report issued by the government, WTC 7 collapsed due to “uncontrolled fires” that were caused by debris that floated over from WTC 1 and 2, which had been hit by passenger planes. If the official narrative was true, WTC 7 would be the first tall building in the world to ever collapse due to uncontrolled fires, and the only steel skyscraper in the world to have collapsed into itself, due to “office fires.” Mr. Howard and his colleagues feared the public would see through the official narrative and rise up against the government, demanding to be told the truth. “There were so many loose ends, so much evidence left behind. We thought the public would be all over it. We thought there would be a public uprising that the media couldn’t ignore. They’d be funding investigations and demanding to know why they were being lied to. We thought they’d find chemical composites in the area that would prove Building 7 was blown up.  “We thought there would be a revolution. It would go all the way to the top, to President Bush. He’d be dragged out of the White House. “But none of that happened. Almost nobody questioned anything. The media shot down anyone who dared question anything they were told.” Follow the money Mr. Howard claims he has “no direct knowledge” about the destruction of North and South Towers of the World Trade Center, explaining that “CIA operations are very specific” and that it is common to be working on a larger project while only understanding a small piece of the puzzle. [9/11: Larry Silverstein Designed New WTC-7 One Year Before Attacks] But he has advice for investigators seeking to understand the entire puzzle and work out who was behind the most devastating attack on American soil in history. “Follow the money.” “When you want to find out who is behind something, just follow the money. Look at the trades made just before 9/11. These are the guys that knew what was coming. The sons of CIA agents, government officials. Close relatives of the most powerful men in America. Cheney, Rumsfeld. They all got rich. It wasn’t just the contracts awarded to their friends in the construction business and the wars and the kickbacks.” “It was insider trading.” Many countries including Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Monaco launched insider trading investigations in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, believing that if they could prove Al-Qaeda operatives profited on the stock market then they could prove the terror organization was behind the attacks. And all the evidence pointed to heavy insider trading around 9/11. Italy’s foreign minister, Antonio Martino, said: “I think that there are terrorist states and organizations behind speculation on the international markets.” German central bank president, Ernst Welteke, said his researchers had found “almost irrefutable proof of insider trading.” Even CNN reported that regulators were seeing “ever-clearer signs” that someone “manipulated financial markets ahead of the terror attack in the hope of profiting from it.” Mr. Howard says that a serious study of who profited on the stock market from 9/11 would “tear the heart out of the oligarchy in America.” “There is only one organization that spans the entire world, and let me tell you now, it isn’t and it never was al-Qaeda.” It’s the CIA. “There could never be a real investigation. The entire shadow government, as you call them now, are implicated.” The 79-year-old, spending his final weeks at home, said he doesn’t expect to be taken into custody following his confession because “then they’d have to go after everyone else. They will just use the media to attack me. They are all on the payroll to suppress everything around 9/11.” Authors Note: The CIA is an entity created by Nelson Rockefeller from various parts of the family’s oil companies. And the Rockefeller Family still calls the shots at the CIA, even to the present.

And, finally, the sheer shock value.

It was a psychological attack, creating panic within the American population. The idea was to use this attack to make the population malleable, to accept what Washington was planning to do next, in terms of draconian legislation. The aim was to militarize the US domestically. One cannot fight wars of looting globally, while loudly proclaiming the advantages of democracy and freedom, domestically. The American population had to be suborned. A short while later, the Patriot Act was passed, which meant turning America into a police state.

Barely a month later, the US invaded Afghanistan.

U.S. Army Special Forces and U.S. Air Force Combat Controllers with Northern Alliance troops on horseback

Within Afghanistan, a group that was fighting the Taliban for control of the north was called the Northern Alliance. Prior to the New York attack, the leadership of the Northern Alliance was opposed to American intervention in Afghanistan. In this regard, Pakistan’s ISI , along with the CIA carried out a assassination on its key leader, Ahmed Shah Masood, on Saturday 8th September. It neutralized the one force in Afghanistan, other than the Taliban, that would oppose the US.

The Saudi Connection

 Blame was laid on Osama bin Laden, and Al Qaeda. But, American media and intelligence also laid blame on Saudi Arabia. The US said that 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudi nationals. To refute this lie, the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia called up a press conference, and told the audience the all the hijackers are alive and well. And that they are in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, he granted permission for the press to go and interview them! So, why was Saudi Arabia blamed?

 In 1998, due to low prices and a deteriorating financial situation, then Crown Prince Abdullah started the Saudi Gas Initiative, or the SGI. He invited the world’s major oil companies to invest in the gas resources of the country. Four separate ventures were created. Many oil companies bid for various parts of these 4 ventures. David Rockefeller was not thrilled. He informed Abdullah that the US oil companies considered Saudi Arabia to be in their sphere of control, and wanted all these ventures to go to American companies, on an exclusive basis. When Abdullah refused, a covert war began between the two houses. Starting in 1999, it ended in 2007. This was a deadly war conducted in the shadows. Saudi Arabia was put under the spotlight, and any chance to blacken their name was not passed up, including Michael Moore’s spin job, “Farenheight 9/11.

Here are some other points. When Bush took office in Washington, on January 20, 2001, the first thing he did was increase the Pentagon’s budget. It went up by 300% between March and September. Did he know something that no one else did?

That Tuesday, September 11, while the towers were burning, two planes landed at Kandahar airport, in Afghanistan, at 2pm local time. They had arrived carrying executives from 2 Chinese state-owned companies, to sign economic and security accords with the Taliban.

And lastly, this attack on September 11 was known in advance to senior Rockefeller family members, by at least 6 to 9 months. They called it “the event”!

So, dear reader, there you have the truth of the matter of 9-11. Also remember, that New York would not allow any outside power/intelligence agency to mount such an operation against in within the USA. These are not how things are done at the highest levels of power in the world.
