FBI mole had contact with bin Laden years before 9/11: US media

- February 28, 2014 - Updated 120 PKT - From Web Edition

WASHINGTON: An informant working for the FBI had contact with terrorist leader Osama bin Laden eight years before the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, The Washington Times and NBC reported.


An FBI mole inside the al-Qaeda terrorist network met with bin Laden and knew that he wanted to finance attacks.


The FBI informant had worked as a driver and a confidant of the radical Egyptian preacher Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind shiekh serving life in prison for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Rahman allegedly told the informant "If you need money, go directly to Osama and tell him that I sent you."


According to the reports, neither Congress nor the 9/11 Commission knew about the mole despite extensive investigations into the attack, which killed nearly 3,000 people.


The 9/11 Commission made serious accusations against the FBI and the CIA. It said during the administration of president George W Bush and his predecessor, Bill Clinton, there were 10 missed opportunities to uncover plans for the attacks. (Monitoring Desk)

MMMMMMMMMMM Yeah........ Sure...!!! B4 nine 11... Osama wuz werkin for the CIA...WTF... running the war against the USSR Cybele Edmonds, the FBI translator, who became a whistle-blower and "the MOST GAGGED WOMAN in AMERICA" stated that Osamma was on the CIA payroll ON nine/11... To me this sounds like more of the same... Gov. disinformation...!!!!!!!!!1

The US government didn't have to discover the attack. It planned the attack, likely with support from KSA, who produced most of the alleged hijackers - assuming that any planes actually did hit the towers, which, given the towers' perfect implosions despite uneven loading, does not seem likely. No debris of the airplanes was visible in the rubble.

Of course CIA operatives had direct contact with Bin Ladin themselves, who do you think taught HIM his war Craft and how to operate US Stinger Missiles? Bin Ladin was a CIA operative with the code name Archer!

This show US crime, if US had compelled Israel to withdraw from occupied lands and settled Palestine dispute as well as accepted the just demand of Al Qaeda the world could have been saved. US committed crime by not addressing root causes.
