9/11: Bin Laden Admitted 9/11 IN ADVANCE -- 3 weeks bfore 9/11, unprecedented attacks on USA
ABC News, Wash DC Local Channel 7 ^ | Sept 11, 2001 | ABC News

Posted on 09/14/2009 8:09:32 AM PDT by Moseley

Osama Bin Laden PRE-ANNOUNCED the 9/11 attacks 3 weeks in advance, promosing "unprecedented attacks" on the US 3 weeks before 9/11.

This is reported at the end of this clip from ABC News, local Channel 7 from Washington, DC, broadcast on the evening of 9/11 2001.

Osama Bin Laden promised that Al Qaeda would attack the US in an unprecedented way BEFORE it happened.

Not only has Al Qaeda repeatedly and proudly admitted that Al Qaeda planned, funded, and executed the 9/11 attacks on the United States, but Osama Bin Laden announced (admitted) the 9/11 attacks 3 weeks in advance, BEFORE it happened.

Also note that the day before 9/11, Bin Laden and his team broke camp and headed for the hills to hide. They did not live in caves. They lived in sprawling, sophisticated training camps and operational camps, under the protection of the Afghanistan government, and with the help of the Afghanistan government and the Pakistan intelligence agency ISI.

It was only the day before 9/11 that Al Qaeda went into hiding. HOW DID THEY KNOW the day before 9/11 to go hide in the mountains?

After it became clear that George Bush would take serious actons, not just a slap on the wrist, Bin Laden and the Taliban denied involvement in 9/11 for about 2 months. They tried to talk the USA and world community OUT of an attack on the USA.

However, once the coalition of nations invaded to liberate Afghanistan, Bin Laden and Al Qaeda dropped that attempt, and proudly admitted that they attacked the USA on 9/11

Great. Now the MSM will have more reason to blame the Bush Administration. After all with 3 weeks notice they should have been able to stop the attacks.

HOW DID THEY KNOW the day before 9/11 to go hide in the mountains?

Pheromones.

Obama announced many times his desire to attack the West and the US beginning with his August 1996 fatwa entitled "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places."

Three months? Try three years...

In 1998, an Arab intelligence officer, who knows Saddam personally, predicted in Newsweek: "Very soon you will be witnessing large-scale terrorist activity run by the Iraqis." The Arab official said these terror operations would be run under "false flags" --spook-speak for front groups--including bin Laden's organization.

Then there were the predictions by an Iraqi with ties to Iraqi intelligence, Naeem Abd Mulhalhal, in Qusay's own newspaper several weeks before the attacks that stated bin Laden would “demolish the Pentagon after he destroys the White House and ”bin Laden would strike America “on the arm that is already hurting.” (referencing a second IRAQI sponsored attack on the World Trade Center). Another reference to New York was “[bin Laden] will curse the memory of Frank Sinatra everytime he hears his songs.” (e.g., “New York, New York”) which identified New York, New York as a target. Mulhalhal also stated, “The wings of a dove and the bullet are all but one and the same in the heart of a believer." which references an airplane attack.

The Arabic language daily newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabic also cited the cooperation between Iraq, bin Laden and Al December 1998 editorial, which predicted that “President Saddam Hussein, whose country was subjected to a four day air strike, will look for support in taking revenge on the United States and Britain by cooperating with Saudi oppositionist Osama Bin-Laden, whom the United States considers to be the most wanted person in the world.” This info is in the link provided below. How could these people have had foreknowledge without Iraq being involved?

Source for this info

Warning...slow loading .pdf file. This was from a lawsuit filed against Iraq after 9/11...the court ruled against Iraq.

There was also another lawsuit filed by the family of John O’Neill (a former FBI agent who captured Ramzi Yousef after the 1993 WTC bombings) after he died in the WTC on 9/11. His personal files from his years of traveling around the world investigating al-Qaeda are were used as evidence in the lawsuit. The evidence includes documents unearthed in the headquarters of the Mukhabarat (Iraq's intelligence service) and information gleaned from the interrogation of both al-Qaeda and Iraqi prisoners. (Link below). It also quotes Vincent Cannistraro, the former CIA counter-terrorism chief, who stated in October 2000 that Iraq had been wanting to carry out terrorist attacks, and that the Iraqi military had been in contact with Osama bin Laden.

We know from these IIS documents that beginning in 1992 the former Iraqi regime regarded bin Laden as an Iraqi Intelligence asset. We know from IIS documents that the former Iraqi regime provided safe haven and financial support to an Iraqi who has admitted to mixing the chemicals for the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center. We know from IIS documents that Saddam Hussein agreed to Osama bin Laden's request to broadcast anti-Saudi propaganda on Iraqi state-run television. We know from IIS documents that a "trusted confidante" of bin Laden stayed for more than two weeks at a posh Baghdad hotel as the guest of the Iraqi Intelligence Service.

BGHater, the trouble is that people are trying to form opinions and conclusions based on “facts” that are 99% false.

The flight recorders have all been recovered. In fact, there are simulations available on YouTube reconstructing the exact flight of the aircraft, down to the exact movements of the control stick and every control on the “dash board” inside the cockpit, available on You Tube.

They have split second to split second the exact movements of the aircraft and the motion of every control in the cockpit, and have posted reconstructions of this information on the internet.

As for the passport of the hijacker, remember WHERE that was. He was in the cockpit, at the top of the fuselage and at the front of the fuselage. When the jet fuel exploded — in the wings — what do you think happens to the objects in front?

Yes, you are right. I do not meant to suggest that 3 weeks ahead is the earliest warning that we had.

I am only saying that the 9/11 Truthers are nuts when Osama Bin Laden actually TOLD US 3 weeks ahead of time that he was going to attack us.

The trouble is... We only knew that Bin Laden would do something, somewhere, somehow, sometime. No specifics.

Of course the black box was found I remember hearing them. And I figured that passport photo above was photo shopped.
