As terrified workers jumped from the burning towers on 9/11, five Mossad agents celebrated the event across the river in New Jersey. They high-fived each other, danced and took photos of themselves in obvious delight. Notified, the police apprehended them. They had Palestinian clothing in their truck. They failed lie detector tests, but were released. Back home they admitted on Israeli television they had come to New York "to record the event."
Two hours before the first plane struck the World Trade Center, the Mossad-owned Odigo messaging system advised its members "to the precise minute" the time of the attack.
These events in particular caused Christopher Bollyn, an independent journalist, to suspect that Israel was a key player behind 9/11.
In his book Bollyn proposes that "9-11 was an elaborate false-flag deception carried out by Israeli military intelligence and Zionist agents" in the United States. He states that "Israeli nationals or dedicated Zionists [can be found] at every key point of the 9-11 matrix."
The author begins with a short review of Israel's successful false flag operations. He then traces the germ of the 9/11 project to Mossad head Isser Harel, who informed an American visitor in 1979 that "your tallest building will be the...symbol they [the terrorists] will hit."
The next step was getting control of security for the World Trade Center, which the Mossad actually did-briefly-in 1987, under the name of Atwell Security. This company soon lost its contract due to the criminal past of one of its officers.
Thereafter, according to Bollyn, the Mossad worked through dual-allegiance Americans like Jeremy Kroll and Maurice Greenberg. Indeed, Kroll Associates was in charge of security at the World Trade Center from the early 1990s until after 9/11. The first plane hit the security rooms of a Greenberg company in the North Tower. This truly was, says Bollyn, "an amazing coincidence."
At this crucial point, however, Bollyn's storyline breaks down. He may infer, but does not even suggest, that Kroll Associates allowed Mossad agents into the buildings to rig them for demolition. …
