Who Flew The 9-18 Plane? - Redux

Financial terrorism suspected
in 2008 economic crash

  Regardless of the report’s findings, U.S. officials and outside analysts said the Pentagon, the Treasury Department and U.S. intelligence agencies are not aggressively studying the threats to the United States posed by economic warfare and financial terrorism.

“Nobody wants to go there,” one official said.

Officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said senior Pentagon policymakers, including Michael Vickers, an assistant defense secretary in charge of special operations, blocked further study, saying the Pentagon was not the appropriate agency to assess economic warfare and financial terrorism risks.

Mr. Vickers declined to be interviewed but, through a spokesman, said he did not say economic warfare was not an area for the Pentagon to study, and that he did not block further study.

Mr. Vickers is awaiting Senate confirmation on his promotion to be undersecretary of defense for intelligence. [Full]


Of course we were the victim of a financial attack, a declaration of war, btw. I find it odd that now, two years after the question "Who piloted the 9-18 plane," was formally asked, we get this news of a "report" that adds nothing by way of discovery.   What does “Nobody wants to go there,” mean?  And, why?

 Moslems, Russia, and  China are identified as leading suspects, but there is no mention of the run on our banks, lasting just about one hour, that made a half-TRILLION dollars disappear [9-18]. 

Why not ask, "Who benefited most?"  Is that where nobody wants to go?  Bill Gertz is is possibly the best Pentagon analyst in the nation, so there's that.  But why this piece?  Does the financially strapped WaTimes need an infusion of readers badly enough to lean on Gertz for something?  Even if  once opened is found empty?  I know who my prime suspects are, and nothing's changed.  Because I know who benefited.

My redneck friend has a similar but less refined phrase. 'Nookie will make you do stupid stuff.' Thats a cleaned up paraphrase.

I always thought Soros had something to do with it.

I am just glad that the attack did not effect our election.
