How 9/11 mastermind revealed to mafia capo an Al Qaeda plot to bring down airliner
The Daily Mail ^ | July 14, 2013 | Laura Collins

The FBI had advance warning of an al-Qaeda plot to bring down a commercial airliner on American soil just weeks before the 1996 TWA 800 crash that claimed 230 civilian lives.

Now, a series of previously-confidential FBI documents obtained by investigative journalist Peter Lance and seen by MailOnline, provide compelling evidence that the crash was an act of terror orchestrated by the man now believed by many to be the true architect of 9/11.

Speaking to MailOnline Lance said: ‘Who wants to have an act of terror on their watch especially an act of terror where an argument could be made that they could have stopped it?

‘The FBI were warned from their own guy. What happened was exactly what he had predicted, exactly. All the dots were connected.’

Al-Qaeda never claimed responsibility for the aircraft crash. The official cause of the disaster remains an explosion of a fuel tank due to a short circuit aboard the plane.

In a chilling twist, the source of the FBI intelligence was mafia capo, Gregory Scarpa Jr. The son of one of the mob’s most prolific killers hoped that co-operating in the federal sting would lead to a lighter sentence for his own crimes.

The arrangement came about when, in the winter of 1996 Scarpa Jr found himself in a cell on the 9th floor tier of the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) the federal jail in lower Manhattan, between al Qaeda terrorists Ramzi Yousef and Abdul Hakim Murad.

I knew it couldn’t have been the central fuel tank. How? Because if it was every ambulance chasing lawyer would be suing Boeing, TWA, FAA,...whomever has deep pockets.

And the class action lawsuit would have been so high profile it would have rivaled the OJ Simpson trial.

Pretty good read, but for those of us who are Pilot’s and Own our own Planes, we knew this was a COVER-UP a long time ago.

I think we all knew, but it’s nice to have it confirmed. Maybe not nice because it further erodes our faith in government.

First error. The so called plot to crash a plane into CIA HQ claims that building is in Fairfax Va. Did they close the shop in Langley? Also the supposed excuse that explosive material may have been brought on board by a soldier returning from Afghanistan. Really?? The NTSB actually said that?? What units of the US Armed Forces were operating in Afghanistan in 1996.? Why would Ramzi Yousef trust Gregory Scarpa with this information? Did al Queda have some connection to the Columbo Family? Maybe Scarpa sr. the so called Grim Reaper gave classes to al Queda on whacking people. And Kallstrom to this day stands by the Bureau’s and NTSB’s finding and IIRC he lost family on TWA800.

The FBI was too busy hounding Christian extremists like David Koresh and Randy Weaver, trying to goad them into terrorist acts, that they completely missed the real threat to Americans.

Like of like they did on Obama’s watch with the Boston Marathon bombers.

”TWA 800…what had to be done has been done.”’

An intercept in Baluchi points to Yousef and makes perfect sense. But we still have 140 witnesses who saw a missile.

Remember, there was another airliner that went down a couple of weeks later on takeoff. The explanation on that one was pretty lame also.

Clinton's strategy was to deny it was terrorism so he wouldn't have to actually do anything.

This article is dated 14 July 2013. Although interesting and seemingly factual, nothing will come of it.

Why would Ramzi Yousef trust Gregory Scarpa with this information?

The article explains the connection and the motive. It was to be used as a "Get out of jail FREE card."

Try the Agents with Willful Dereliction of Sworn Duties, then try and imprison them.

And I’m sure Jack Cashill’s name is mentioned nowhere in this piece

Thanks for the ping. I think it was the accidental launch of a U.S. Navy anti-aircraft missile.
