The Ugly Truth Podcast March 15, 2010
U.S. Muslim leader Salam Al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), has been highly critical of Israel. One of his more controversial proclamations came in the wake of 9/11, when he pointed a finger at Israel:
"If we're going to look at suspects [for 9/11], we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies," he said in a radio interview shortly after the attacks in 2001, according to the Los Angeles Times.9-11 Cop Who Arrested Dancing Israelis Speaks
In the first ever interview of its kind (video above), Dave Gahary speaks with the police officer responsible for arresting the "Dancing Israelis" on September 11, 2001, who were caught filming and celebrating while the WTC burned and people died. Sgt. Scott DeCarlo reveals the details of that day, details the Zionist-controlled mainstream media conveniently overlooked. DeCarlo has promised that this is his first and last interview on the subject, in the hopes of quelling ongoing interest in his role that horrible day.

The Five Dancing Israelis - 9/11/2001 - Our Purpose Was To Document The Event
The Mossad prides itself on deep infiltration and penetration into every ‘Muslim’ militant group in the world. Thus any media-hyped ‘terrorist’ attack reported by the Zionist-occupied press is doubtless a Mossad operation. All of the Mossad-engineered ‘terrorist’ attacks benefit the Zionists since it galvanizes the Western world into making Israel’s enemies their own and gives Israel a free hand in dealing with the Palestinians, who are looked upon as enemies of the world. In fact, the Zionist Jew, Dov Zakheim, along with his Mossad cohorts, should be put on trial for the theft of public funds, treason, and the murder of thousands of innocent victims at the World Trade Center on 9/11 2001. As the Pentagon’s Comptroller from 2001-2004, Zakheim oversaw three Department of Defense budgets. A study by the Defense Department’s Inspector General discovered that not only could the Pentagon not account for the trillion dollars in monies spent, but that the U.S. Army somehow lost track of 56 airplanes, 32 tanks, and 36 Javelin missile command launch-units. How is that the Zionist Jew, Dov Zakheim, got off Scott free? And where did the money and military equipment end up? I say the money ended up in the hands of the Mossad — and the equipment in the hands of the Israeli Defense Force. For they had “their man” — Zionist Jew Dov Zakheim — in the Pentagon. [Source]

9/11, Israel & the Mossad Investigated with Christopher Bollyn
Thanks to andie531 for obtaining and making available the FBI documents on the "Dancing Israelis": KURZBERG, SIVAN ET AL.
As will be shown, this FBI 'investigation' is very similar to the NIST 'investigations' into the World Trade Center (WTC) buildings collapses, in that the conclusion is politically motivated rather than evidence-based.
Section 5 even reveals how the FBI's NS-2C Unit of its "National Security Division" based at FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C., ordered FBI Newark to stop their investigation of the Israelis.
The documents were partly declassified in 2005. However, there are many parts that are still blanked out and classified until 2030 or 2035.
Apart from names of individuals, the unreleased material includes longer passages such as the section following the question:
Did the Israeli nationals have foreknowledge of the events at WTC and were they filming the events prior to and in anticipation of the explosion?" The fact that it's blanked out indicates that the answer is clearly not an emphatic "no".Nonetheless, the material that has already been released is sufficient to prove that the Israelis did indeed have foreknowledge of the attacks on the WTC.
That is of course consistent with:
- Israel's capability and history of staging false-flag terror.
- The two hours' advance warning of the WTC attack transmitted via the Herzliya / New York-based Israeli instant messaging service Odigo.
- The failure of Benjamin Netanyahu's friend Larry Silverman and his children to turn up for work that day at the World Trade Center. [Six months before the 9/11 attacks, the WTC was "privatized" by being leased to the Silverstein Group for $3.2 billion. Instead of renovation, Silverstein is rebuilding, funded by the insurance coverage on the property which 'fortuitously' covered acts of terrorism. Even better, Silverstein filed two insurance claims for the maximum amount of the policy, based on the two, in Silverstein's view, separate attacks. The total potential payout is $4.6 billion, more than enough to build a fabulous new complex and leave a hefty profit for the Silverstein Group, including Larry Silverstein himself.]
- Netanyahu's advance warning of, and Efraim Halevy's intimate knowledge of, the London 7/7 attacks.
- The $250,000 "loan" received by Bernard Kerik from Israeli billionaire Eitan Wertheimer, together with $236,000 in rent paid by Steven C. Witkoff after Kerik visited Israel from August 26-29, 2001, to meet with Wertheimer and then claimed on September 16, 2001 that a "hijacker's passport" had been "discovered."
- Along with multiple corroborating evidence much too numerous to mention in an introduction.

The FBI documents are formatted with a fixed spacing, so it is generally an easy job to determine the number of characters within the classified boxes. The beginning of each paragraph is indented by ten spaces, and there is a double-spacing between sentences. Where a paragraph starts with "(S/OC/NF)", for example, that is followed by two spaces before the start of the first sentence. The position of the last character on a line is not predictable, but sometimes the section is repeated elsewhere with the word in question appearing part-way along a line. Moreover, the FBI do not obliterate the exact same words each time a passage is repeated, so an examination of all repetitions reveals more information, such as how Paul Kurzberg worked for the "Jewish Agency".

Context of 'September 16, 2004: Israelis Arrested on 9/11 Sue the US, Claiming Mistreatment and Torture; Lawsuit Never Happens'By HistoryCommons.org
Shortly After 8:46 a.m. September 11, 2001: Neighbor Sees Suspicious Men Documenting First WTC Attack and Cheering, Calls PoliceA homemaker living near Liberty State Park, Jersey City, New Jersey sees three men behaving strangely on a nearby roof and alerts the authorities. This homemaker, who has given only her first name Maria, is called by a neighbor shortly after the first plane has hit the WTC and is told about the impact. She has a view of the WTC from her apartment building so she gets her binoculars and watches the disaster. However, she also notices three young men kneeling on the roof of a white van in the parking lot of her apartment building. Maria will later recall, “They seemed to be taking a movie.”
They are taking video or photos of themselves with the WTC burning in the background. But what strikes Maria is their expressions: “They were like happy, you know… They didn’t look shocked to me. I thought it was very strange.”
She writes down the license plate number of the van and calls the police. [ABC News, 6/21/2002]
Apparently the men leave the area a few minutes after the first attack is over. [CounterPunch, 2/7/2007] An FBI lookout bulletin for the van will be issued later in the day (see 3:31 p.m. September 11, 2001) and the three men (plus two more discovered with them) will be detained (see 3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001).
When the men detained, one of them will be found with pictures of the group standing with the burning wreckage of the WTC in the background. [Forward, 3/15/2002] At least some of the pictures were taken while standing on top of the van. [New York Times, 10/8/2001]
The lawyer for the five men will later note that one photograph developed by the FBI shows one of the men, Sivan Kurzberg, holding a lighted lighter in the foreground, with the burning WTC in the background. [New York Times, 11/21/2001]
It will apparently be determined at least two of the men are Israeli spies, but what they were doing and why will remain in dispute. One of these Israelis will later say, “our purpose was to document the event.” [ABC News, 6/21/2002]
3:31 p.m. September 11, 2001: FBI Issues Lookout Warning for White Van Possibly Connected to 9/11 AttacksThe FBI issues a BOLO (be on lookout) bulletin for three suspicious men who were seen leaving the New Jersey waterfront minutes after the first hijacked plane hit the WTC (see Shortly After 8:46 a.m. September 11, 2001).
Law enforcement officers in the greater New York City area are warned in a radio dispatch to watch for a “vehicle possibly related to New York terrorist attack.” The bulletin reads, in part: “White, 2000 Chevrolet van…with ‘Urban Moving Systems’ sign on back seen at Liberty State Park, Jersey City, NJ, at the time of first impact of jetliner into World Trade Center….
Three individuals with van were seen celebrating after initial impact and subsequent explosion. FBI Newark Field Office requests that, if the van is located, hold for prints and detain individuals.”
The van is located a short time later and five men inside it are arrested (see 3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001). [CounterPunch, 2/7/2007]
3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001: Five Apparent Israeli Spies Arrested for Puzzling Behavior at Time of First WTC AttackFive Israelis are arrested for “puzzling behavior” related to the WTC attacks.
Shortly after an FBI lookout bulletin was issued for a van with the words “Urban Moving Systems” written on the side, officers with the East Rutherford Police Department in New Jersey stop the van after matching the license plate number with the one given in the bulletin.
According to the police report, Officer Scott DeCarlo and Sgt. Dennis Rivelli approach the van and demand the driver exit the vehicle. The driver, Sivan Kurzberg, does not obey after being asked several more times, so the police physically remove Kurzberg and four other men from the van and handcuff them. They have not been told the reasons for their arrest, but Kurzberg tells them, “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.” Again before the police have made any mention of the 9/11 attacks, another one of the arrested men says, “[W]e were on the West Side Highway in New York City during the incident.”
In fact, it will later be determined they were on the roof of a building at Liberty State Park, watching and videotaping the first crash into the WTC (see Shortly After 8:46 a.m. September 11, 2001). [Bergen Record, 9/12/2001; Ha'aretz, 9/17/2001
The FBI and additional police quickly arrive. They shut down the section of Route 3 in East Rutherford where the van was stopped and evacuate a nearby hotel as a security precaution. [Bergen Record, 9/12/2001]
One man is found with $4,700 in cash hidden in his sock, another has two foreign passports on him, and a box cutter is found in the van. [ABC News, 6/21/2002] Another has pictures of the men standing with the burning wreckage of the WTC in the background. [Forward, 3/15/2002] All five identify themselves as Israeli citizens and claim to be working for the New Jersey-based Urban Moving Systems company.
In addition to the driver Sivan Kurzberg, the others are identified as Paul Kurzberg (Sivan’s brother), Oded Ellner, Omer Marmari, and Yaron Shmuel. The men are detained but not charged. [Forward, 3/15/2002; ABC News, 6/21/2002]
The next day it will be reported that “bomb-sniffing dogs reacted as if they had detected explosives.” An investigator high up in the Bergen County law enforcement hierarchy will say in 2006, “There are maps of the city in the car with certain places highlighted…. It looked like they’re hooked in with this [referring to the 9/11 attacks]. It looked like they knew what was going to happen.…It looked like they knew what was going to happen when they were at Liberty State Park.” [Bergen Record, 9/12/2001]
The FBI will later conclude at least two of the five are Mossad agents and that all were on a Mossad surveillance mission. The FBI interrogates them for weeks. [Forward, 3/15/2002] They are held on immigration violation charges, but will be released 71 days later (see November 20, 2001). [ABC News, 6/21/2002]
3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001), and now two more Israeli men working for the same company are arrested. The two men, Roy Barak and Motti Butbul, are driving one of their company’s moving vans in northern Pennsylvania when they are pulled over and arrested at around noon on September 12, 2001. Barak has overstayed his six-month visa and Butbul has no work permit. Both were in the Israeli military, Barak as an ex-paratrooper and Butful as a cook. Barak says he worked for Urban Moving Systems since the summer of 2000.
The two are detained and sometimes kept in solitary confinement, but they later claim no ill treatment. Barak will later recall that US interrogators were most interested if he was connected to the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency. “They asked if someone sent me to the United States. They asked me if I worked in a moving company so I could monitor people’s movements.” He is given polygraph tests and claims to have satisfied his questioners except on the issue of who sent him to the US. On November 9, 2001, both are deported back to Israel. [Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 11/18/2001]
Around this time intense political pressure is put on US officials holding five Israeli men arrested for suspicious behavior at the time of the 9/11 attacks (see 3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001).
According to the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and two unidentified “prominent New York congressmen” lobby heavily for their release.
According to a source at ABC News, well-known criminal lawyer Alan Dershowitz also becomes involved as a negotiator to help get the men released. (Dershowitz will later refuse to comment on the matter.) [CounterPunch, 2/7/2007]
ABC News will later report that was “high-level negotiations between Israeli and US government officials” over the five men, resulting in a settlement. [ABC News, 6/21/2002]
Apparently the political pressure will succeed because the men will be released a few weeks later (see November 20, 2001]).
The five Israelis arrested on 9/11 for videotaping the WTC attack and then cheering about it (see 3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001) are released and deported to Israel.
Some of the men’s names had appeared in a US national intelligence database, and the FBI has concluded that at least two of the men were working for the Mossad, according to ABC News. However, the FBI says that none of the Israelis had any advanced knowledge of the 9/11 attacks, and they were released as part of a deal between the US and the Israeli government.
After their release, they claim to have been tortured. [Forward, 3/15/2002; ABC News, 6/21/2002]
September 16, 2004: Israelis Arrested on 9/11 Sue the US, Claiming Mistreatment and Torture; Lawsuit Never Happens
Four of the five Israelis arrested on 9/11 (see 3:56 p.m. September 11, 2001), Paul and Sivan Kurzberg, Omer Marmari, and Yaron Shmuel, file a multimillion dollar lawsuit against the US Justice Department.
They claim they were arrested illegally, then held without charge and interrogated and tortured for months.
Their lawyer claims the case will serve as a venue to debunk theories that Israel was behind the 9/11 attacks. [Ha'aretz, 9/16/2004; Jerusalem Post, 9/16/2004]
Forward, a publication geared towards the Jewish population in the US, reported in 2002 that the FBI concluded at least two of the five were Mossad agents and that all were on a Mossad surveillance mission. [Forward, 3/15/2002]
As of early 2011, there have been no further media reports about this lawsuit.
9-11 WTC Biggest Gold Heist in History: $300 Billion in Bars
Robert Torricelli Smear Campaign Lead by The New York Times Cost Him His Re-electionIt's amazing how this country changed after 9/11. The USA Patriot Act, all 342 pages of it, was presented to Congress just 19 days after 9/11. That sprawling piece of legislation contains more than 150 sections and amends more than 15 federal laws. It was pre-written and just waiting for 9/11 so that it could be quickly passed and signed into law. How else could the government strip the people of its liberties without a fight? Then on November 25, 2002, the Homeland Security Act was signed into law, creating the Department of Homeland Security. The ultimate mission statement of this agency, with its $40 billion budget, will be turned inward and used as a federal police department and a standing army against U.S. citizens. It is a private army for an oppressive government that doesn't have the good of U.S. citizens at heart.
The DHS has turned local law enforcers into soldiers. Thousands of local police departments nationwide have been amassing stockpiles of military-style equipment in the name of homeland security, aided by more than $34 billion in federal grants since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The buying spree has transformed local police departments into small, army-like forces and has put intimidating equipment into their hands, jeopardizing public safety and civil rights while creating an expensive false sense of security.
That America ever existed without such an agency, I mean, wow how did we do it? How did we put on our shoes and pull up our pants without yet another body of bloated law enforcement? Obviously we need to grow the government so that we can fight about how to increase the tax burden even further and force even more Americans to suffer. Seems like a good idea to me, you know. Never mind, we should just round everyone up and chip them, scrap all personal and individual rights, and just use them as slave labor...but wait no, then they wouldn't be paying 'taxes' and they would cost us instead of supplying us with income. No, better to leave them like free-range cattle and just slowly whittle away at individual freedom, until one day everyone is nothing more than wage slaves, working just to pay taxes and to eat so they can work some more, to pay more taxes....oh wait, that's already here isn't it?
What the DHS has really accomplished since its inception is to slowly abrogate the rights of the citizens in the name of the so-called "War on Terror."
When the government fears the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny.
People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.
Democratic New Jersey Senator Robert Torricelli attempted to uncover the facts surrounding the 9/11 tragedy in a speech before the Senate on September 26, 2001. Torricelli addressed the Senate again on February 5, 2002, calling for an “open” Board of Inquiry on 911, saying:
“President Bush has suggested that we hold private hearings regarding the 9/11 tragedy. This is not how we conduct the Government. Our accountability is to the people of our country. Yet the administration claims that such hearings would be a distraction from the war on terrorism. That is not our history or how we conduct our Government. Accountability is at the core of any representative government. This Nation needs an independent board of inquiry to determine the events of September 11.”Torricelli served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Jersey's 9th district from 1983 to 1997 and as the United States Senator from New Jersey from 1997 to 2003, until a smear campaign headed by the Zionist-run New York Times forced him to withdraw from the race for re-election.
Late in an increasingly competitive race against Republican Doug Forrester in 2002, Torricelli suddenly withdrew after disclosure of illegal contributions to his campaign by David Chang, a businessman connected to North Korea. Torricelli had previously denied this and a number of other charges. In his withdrawal speech on September 30, 2002, he stated that despite leaving public office in a different way than he had planned, he was proud of his service. Shortly thereafter, the New Jersey Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the Democratic Party could legally replace Torricelli's name on the ballot with that of former U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, ironically a longtime Torricelli nemesis, with whom he had often publicly feuded. New Jersey Republicans had contested the Torricelli–Lautenberg swap on the grounds that the deadline for ballot changes had long passed. It seemed apparent to many that Torricelli had only made his decision after local polls showed, for the first time, that the scandal had damaged his re-election chances beyond repair. On July 30, 2002, Torricelli received a formal letter of admonishment from the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Ethics, for his involvement with David Chang, and for the acceptance of gifts including a CD player, television, and earrings.

Israel DID 9/11 (Israeli Mossad) Dr. Alan Sabrosky
Source] Kerik’s story is obvious: seduced, first, by being around the Saudi’s and their infamous lifestyle, then by Giuliani, one of the most controversial figures in history and, finally, thrown into the 9/11 conspiracy.
By Veterans Today
March 11, 2010
THE MYTH OF POOR BERNIE KERIK AND THE 9/11 COVER-UP
One of the strangest things seen in America in recent days was the press coverage of the sentencing of Bernie Kerik as a crooked cop. Day in, day out, Fox News does little but talk up the heroics of Bernie Kerik and how he is being wrongfully persecuted by the courts. There is much more to this story than Fox will report or than Fox is able to hide.
What is now obvious is that Kerik’s threat is that he is the only important character central to the 9/11 case to be going to jail.
How did a poor boy with a GED go from dog handler for the army in Korea to, according to Rupert Murdoch, “one of America’s greatest heroes?” According to Kerik’s bio, his 3 year stint as a dog handler had him as one of the most experienced trainers of Special Forces though he was neither Ranger nor Special Forces qualified, thus making his bio a total fiction.
Compare the fates of Kerik and Erik Prince of Blackwater. ABC News accusations tied Prince to murders and gun running as part of a “crusade to eliminate Muslims.” Witnesses mysteriously disappeared and Blackwater was tied to one scandal after another. Prince, millionaire long before Blackwater and son-in-law of the Amway/GOP Christian extremist billionaire, Dick DeVos of Grand Rapids, Michigan, simply changed the name of his company, first Xe, then Parvel and the billions keep rolling in. Kerik, for 1% of Prince’s transgressions, goes to prison.
What was Kerik really and why is Fox News so terrified of him and what he could say?
He was a “fixer” and and the only real gangster in the whole Bush mob. He played the street thug among a pack of blowhards, their “go to” guy when dirty work had to be done; but, in the end, showed his colors: phony, crybaby and fraud. His short stint in the Army and his inflated resume landed him a job cleaning up messes for the Saudi Royal family, a job even a rat would vomit over. Another of my closest friends held a similar job during much the same time.
No Hollywood scandal sheet could match the stories of utter debauchery working for the Saudi royals supplies. My guess is that working for the Saudis touched him as it has so many others, that close to that much corruption and hypocrisy. Giuliani and Bush would be just another pair of “whore-mongering princes” to Kerik.
Kerik, who went from “bankrupt” as a cop to “stock manipulation” millionaire days later, picked up a 1.2 billion dollar contract training the Iraqi police. Senior American military officials who met with Kerik while he was “touring” Iraq indicated that he was “utterly unqualified and without any substance whatsoever.” They called his entire operations “a sham.”
Lt. Gen. Sanchez said of Kerik:
The former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq took aim at Bernard Kerik in an exclusive interview with the Daily News Sunday, calling his efforts to train Iraqi police in 2003 “a waste of time and effort.”Other sources indicate Kerik was trying to take over the black market and prostitution trade in Baghdad. Mysterious and unauthorized raids on whore houses thru Iraq by “police trainers,” along with massive financial irregularities in everything Kerik touched in Iraq, paints a picture Fox News also seems to have missed.
Retired Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, the top military leader in Iraq from June 2003 to June 2004, blasted the former police commissioner for failing to produce results while Kerik was the interim minister of interior in 2003.
“I would be hard-pressed to identify a major national-level success that his organization accomplished in that time,” Sanchez told The News a day before his new memoir, “Wiser in Battle” hits bookstores nationwide.
“He is a very energetic guy. He is very confident – overconfident to an extent – and he is very superficial in his understanding of the requirements of his job,” Sanchez said. “His whole contribution was a waste of time and effort.”
Sanchez said when Kerik left Iraq, after just 90 days, he checked the Interior Ministry’s inventory to see what equipment was bought for the Iraqi police. Sanchez said he was “shocked” to find out that the only thing on the books was 50,000 Glock pistols.
“When I was informed of the exorbitant prices that were being paid for these pistols, my first reaction was that there had to be some impropriety, but I had no evidence to substantiate it,” he wrote.
Sanchez also told The News that he was “flabbergasted” when he heard that Kerik was nominated secretary of Homeland Security. The nomination was dropped days later, after Kerik admitted to hiring an undocumented nanny, and in November he was indicted for bribery and tax evasion.
Kerik, among other crimes, stands convicted of lying to get himself confirmed as Director of Homeland Security. Why would Bush want a now convicted felon, someone rated as “useless” by Bush’s most senior military commanders in the administration’s most important post? What needed skills did he bring that any other convicted felon couldn’t, especially a more successful criminal?
Pimp, bagman and self promoter? Was this on the resume from that period? He could have been a real hero: he had the makings of it but was seduced by lesser men, hardly men at all — Giuliani, Bush and so many others, people he must have felt sick being around, a pack of “girlie men” as our “Governator” would call it.
THE PHONY 9/11 “HERO” GAME
The only real fame that has stuck to Kerik from 9/11 is his use of an apartment meant for fire fighters working at “ground zero” for “nooners” with his multiple mistresses.
Bernie Kerik, who counts Rudy Giuliani not only as his friend but his mentor, is also the subject of a lawsuit brought by book publisher Judith Regan against the News Corporation (owner of Fox News) for encouraging Regan to mislead federal investigators about her sexual relationship with Kerik during his bid to become the Homeland Security Secretary.You might think Fox News would remember this when talking about Kerik’s supposed 9/11 heroics. Their memory is conveniently short it seems.
News Corp. allegedly did so in order to protect Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign. (Regan and Kerik reportedly used an apartment near Ground Zero, that was supposed to be used by exhausted 9/11 rescue workers, for their sexual affair).
9/11 brought out every profiteer and con artist America had.
Guiliani and Kerik built a billion dollar empire out of nominating themselves as heroes of 9/11, when hundreds of others died serving the city of New York while they played the crowd and ran back and forth to Washington. Giuliani and Kerik would have ended up, had things not gone bad, with all the Blackwater or Dyncorp contracts, worth tens of billions, had it all not come crashing down.
Kerik actually got a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth for, well, hanging out with Giuliani and Bush, much the same way he hung out with the Saudis. Perhaps the queen could arrange a knighthood for Tiger Woods, Silvio Berlusconi or Rupert Murdoch. Giuliani got a knighthood also, for “helping the British relatives of 9/11 victims.”
What next, a sainthood for Al Capone and Meyer Lansky or a posthumous Nobel Prize in Medicine for Dr. Mengele?
You have to give Giuliani credit. Not only did he push to have as many terrorist suspects arrested as possible, in massive sweeps, but has had the foresight to come in behind them and represent the same “terrorists” through his law firm. I love moral flexibility of this kind, as does Liz Cheney, who called him on this.
However, Rudy’s big liability is always going to be Kerik.
Dan Collins writes of Kerik:
What’s really amazing here is that this cheap crook and charlatan should have achieved such wealth and lofty position in the first place. While Kerik has left an impressively long trail of wrongdoing, it bears the fingerprints of a petty criminal. During the period the former New York City police commissioner was raking in megabucks, he shortchanged the government by a little less than $200,000, according to the prosecutor.The same press that is crying over Kerik going to jail for corruption while NYC police commissioner is also attacking anyone asking for a new investigation of 9/11.
There was an off-the-books nanny, bogus charitable deductions, the unreported free use of a car and, of course, the well-known apartment renovations paid for by a construction company with suspected mob ties. Kerik earned well over half a million dollars from his best-selling rags-to-riches memoir, but he only thought to conceal about $70,000 of his book income from the government.
There’s little doubt Bernie had bigger dreams. He set up a Delaware corporation to park income from his lucrative post-9/11 speaking engagements. He also created an offshore account for himself by forming a shell corporation in the Cayman Islands.
Kerik’s greatest strength was loyalty to the boss, combined with a low cunning that enabled him to manipulate people.
An eyewitness to the latter quality was Judith Regan, the hotshot book editor who published Kerik’s memoir. Regan was one of two women Bernie was making love to in an apartment overlooking the ruins at Ground Zero that a developer had donated for the use of rescue workers in need of rest.
She split with Kerik when it dawned on her that Bernie wasn’t going to leave his wife, as promised.
“The night I was done with him was the day of the New York marathon,” she told HuffPost blogger Len Levitt. “The guys from his detail took me to the tent he was in. He started crying, ‘I love you. You can’t leave me.’ He was crying in front of everyone inside the tent.”
“He cries on cue,” Regan lamented. “He did it when he was interviewed on 60 Minutes. He did it when he went on Oprah and he spoke about his mother.”
With the Commission itself saying it was misled, one of the prime sources on 9/11, Kerik himself, now a convicted felon, should be drowning in questions and accusations, not accolades for a petty crook. Especially with the revelations that the Commission entirely missed the impossible controlled demolition of Building 7, something that had to have been supervised by Kerik, something that required weeks of preparation, and something now tearing America apart.
Why doesn’t the press mention that President Bush actually nominated this convicted felon to head the Department of Homeland Security? Instead we got Michael Chertoff, who represents the companies making body scanners, and is now tied to another great coverup, the “crotch bombing” of Detroit last Christmas.
WHEN THE PRESS CRUCIFIED EVERYONE ELSE, WHY NOT KERIK?
Normally, the press would be calling Kerik:
- reputed mobster
- Giuliani “bag man”
- “violated the public trust”
- phony hero/glory hound
- corrupt public official
- convicted felon
- possible organized crime “associate
- crooked cop
WHY DOES THE JUDGE DUMP ON KERIK?
We move into the area of conjecture. Kerik was arrested and jailed by the same administration that appointed him head of Homeland Security. It doesn’t take much imagination that his conviction or rather “plea agreement” is after a cover-up and shoody investigation. This would have angered a judge, knowing a serious criminal was getting a short sentence and would be free to pick up his hundreds of millions in “ill gotten gains” the moment he left his “country club” prison.
Sources indicate that Giuliani and Kerik had remade New York City into the Chicago of the 1920s but on a scale unimagined. 9/11 theorists all believe that having Giuliani and Kerick in place made the attacks possible. The revelations on Building 7 and the now public statement of Silverstein admitting to a sinister controlled demolition, inconsistent with any possible engineering reality, normal fire fighter tactic or any other human possibility.
We are left with incontrovertible evidence of something extremely wrong, involving Giuliani and Kerik personally, involving billions in possible insurance fraud and something mysteriously timed to an “unexpected” disaster. All the “Fox News” subterfuge in the world can’t talk there way out of this one. Is all the press supporting Kerik a way of trying to make him keep his mouth shut? Was the prison sentence a way of pressuring him to talk?
Anyone really involved in 9/11, especially anyone involved in perjured testimony to the 9/11 Commission, should face a lot more than a few years in prison, perhaps even the death penalty.
There is simply no way to explain 9/11 and “pulling down” a 47 story building with 10 minutes of preparation without conclusively proving nearly everyone that profited from 9/11, the Iraq War or who pushed forward draconian legislation wasn’t involved in planning the attacks themselves.
Let’s stop kidding ourselves: this is where it goes, no other explanation is possible, and Bernie Kerik may be the key to all of it. Why else would the press care about someone who is so very “yesterday” when we have troops fighting a major war in Afghanistan, a war the press has pushed aside to plea for the freedom of a corrupt public official at the center of the 9/11 controversy?
WHY KERIK, NOT BUSH OR CHENEY?
In some ways, Kerik is a victim. He is the “wrong side of the tracks” guy, no Yale education, no time in Congress, and a history of getting his hands dirty. Kerik was the “garbage man” and, in the end, was tossed on the scrap heap himself. It was expected Kerik would get a presidential pardon from Bush. When that didn’t happen, obvious ripples of fear went through the communities that Kerik could testify against the massive insurance ripoff at the World Trade Center (recently leased and over-insured against terrorism and then almost immediately attacked); or the endless other machinations originating from New York City where Kerik, not only a Giuliani business partner but Bush insider, would have been consulted continually.
He was the only “street smarts” in the entire deluded Bush organization. The continual orchestrations of the press look like what they are: a press controlled by Israeli/Zionist interests, which seems, for some unknown reason, to have nothing in the world to talk about but defending a guy who knows too much, way too much, who someone seems very afraid of.
Kerik’s story is obvious: seduced, first, by being around the Saudi’s and their infamous lifestyle, then by Giuliani, one of the most controversial figures in history and, finally, thrown into the 9/11 conspiracy.
I can imagine how it might have gone:
“Our people will be out of the buildings, and if we don’t do this, Israel may fall, Islam will take over the world, and America might become Socialist. If we hadn’t rigged the last election, Gore would be in office right now and Communist China would be running Wall Street. You don’t want that do you?”Throw hundreds of millions at anyone, drown him in medals, honors and continual meetings with even the most incompetent and idiotic of presidents, and few could keep any sense of honor or decency. The real fear today is that Bernie Kerik may actually be some of what he says he is, a hero. If this is true, it will blow America off the map with a scandal only an alien invasion could overshadow.
Could Israel and Fox News arrange that?
The Patsy- The Bernard Kerik Story- The Weak Link in 911 cover up
The 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty killed 34 American servicemen. After the ship was disabled by aircraft cannon, rockets and napalm, Israeli torpedo boats were sent in.
President Lyndon Johnson and his defense secretary, Robert McNamara, ordered that the inquiry conclude the incident was an accident. In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy's inquiry to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."
It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins. “Why would our government put Israel’s interests ahead of our own?,” Moorer asked from his wheelchair at the news conference. He was chief of naval operations at the time of the attack.Moorer, who long held that the attack was a deliberate act, wanted Congress to investigate.
Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.
Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot's radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.
The pilot's protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities. Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery.

Why did Israel try to sink a naval vessel of its benefactor and ally?
Most likely because ‘Liberty’s’ intercepts flatly contradicted Israel’s claim, made at the war’s beginning on 5 June, that Egypt had attacked Israel, and that Israel’s massive air assault on three Arab nations was in retaliation. In fact, Israel began the war by a devastating, Pearl-Harbor style surprise attack that caught the Arabs in bed and destroyed their entire air forces.
The Electronic Intifada has obtained, and today publishes in full, a document prepared for pro-Israel activists by the public relations firm The Luntz Research Companies and The Israel Project. The document spells out the tactics that Israel and its US advocates should use to maintain support for Israel and its hardline policies.
The document, entitled “Wexner Analysis: Israeli Communication Priorities 2003,” counsels pro-Israel advocates to keep invoking the name of Saddam Hussein, and to stress that Israel “was always behind American efforts to rid the world of this ruthless dictator and liberate their people.” Despite his solid support for Israel and Ariel Sharon, the document warns pro-Israel advocates not to compliment or praise President Bush. At the same time it acknowledges that Yasser Arafat has been a great asset to Israel because “he looks the part” of a “terrorist.” The installation of Mahmoud Abbas as Palestinian prime minister, and potential replacement for Arafat, comes “at the wrong time,” because he has the potential to improve the image of the Palestinians, and that could put the onus on Israel to return to negotiations. The document advises supporters of Israel to appear to affect a “balanced” tone, but admits that in arguing for Israel’s policies, the illegal “settlements are our Achilles heel,” for which there is no good defense.
The document was commissioned by the Wexner Foundation, a private foundation that funds, among other pro-Israel initiatives, “Birthright Israel,” a program that pays for young American Jews to take free trips to Israel. The Israel Project is an initiative of pro-Israel organizations, political consultants and businesspeople. The Luntz Research Companies is a leading public relations and opinion research firm.
Here is some of the key advice the document provides to Israel and its advocates:
- “Iraq colors all. Saddam is your best defense, even if he is dead. The worldview [of] Americans is entirely dominated by developments in Iraq. This is a unique opportunity for Israelis to deliver a message of support and unity at a time of great international anxiety and opposition from some of our European “allies.” For a year - a SOLID YEAR - you should be invoking the name of Saddam Hussein and how Israel was always behind American efforts to rid the world of this ruthless dictator and liberate their people.”
- “The fact that Israel has remained relatively silent for the three months preceding the war and for the three weeks of the war was absolutely the correct strategy - and according to all the polling done, it worked. But as the military conflict comes to a close, it is now time for Israel to lay out its own “road map” for the future which includes unqualified support for America and unqualified commitment to an ongoing war against terrorism.”
- “It DOES NOT HELP when you compliment President Bush. When you want to identify with and align yourself with America, just say it. Don’t use George Bush as a synonym for the United States. Even with the destruction of the Hussein regime and all the positive reactions from the Iraqi people, there still remains about 20% of America that opposes the Iraqi war, and they are overwhelmingly Democrat. That leaves about half the Democrats who support the war even if they don’t support George Bush. You antagonize the latter half unnecessarily every time you compliment the President. Don’t do it.”
- “SECURITY sells. Security has become the key fundamental principle for all Americans. Security is the context by which you should explain Israeli need for loan guarantees and military aid, as well as why Israel can’t just give up land. The settlements are our Achilles heel, and the best response (which is still quite weak) is the need for security that this buffer creates.”
