2001- Profiting From September 11
In an unprecedented move that would puzzle many, President Bush immediately has all the steel from the world trade center shipped out and sold to China before any of it could be thoroughly examined. The President then hired the company Controlled Demolition Inc., to perform the cleanup of the World Trade Center. Controlled Demolition Inc. had financial ties to Dick Cheney and had also been hired to demolish the Murrah Building in Oklahoma after the blast in 1995.
After the attacks, Larry Silverstien alone collected 8 billion dollars in insurance on his original 14 million dollar investment made into the twin towers just two months prior to the attacks.
Building 7, which was not hit by a plane, had housed offices for the IRS, Secret Service, CIA, Department of Defense, and Securities and Exchange Commission. Lost forever, were thousands of SEC case files on corporate fraud including those related to the activities of Worldcom and Enron, as well as the case files of the trillions of dollars missing from the Pentagon that Donald Rumsfeld had announced the day prior to the attacks.
And as far as the unusual trading in the US stock options market for put options betting that American Airlines stock would drop that also took place the day prior to the attacks, as well as the similar unusual trades on the Chicago Board Options Exchange four days before the attack betting that United Airlines would drop; after the attacks, the stock prices did fall and translated into a hefty profit for someone. The names of the persons or entities who bought the put options that profited from this disaster were deemed classified by the CIA.
2001- Amerithrax Concludes
Immediately after the passing of the Patriot Act and the anthrax story, it became clear that, despite the repeated attempts in October to blame the attacks on al-Qaeda and Iraq, the spores had been prepared in a U.S. laboratory serving the military and intelligence communities. This was admitted by the FBI and Homeland Security by the end of 2001 after the spores were traced. The FBI concluded that a scientist (Dr. Bruce Ivins) from the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases was the “lone wolf” perpetrator. It was eventually also revealed that both George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were put on Cipro on September 11. This was explained as standard protocol following a terrorist event.
2001- Patriot Act Signed Into Law
President George W. Bush signs the Patriot Act into law on October 26, 2001. The title of the Act (USA Patriot Act) is a contrived three letter initialism (USA) preceding a seven letter acronym (PATRIOT), which in combination stand for Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001.
Those opposing the law have criticized its authorization to search a home or business without the owner’s or the occupant’s consent or knowledge; the expanded use of National Security Letters, which allows the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to search telephone, e-mail, and financial records without a court order; and the expanded access of law enforcement agencies to business records, including library and financial records.
The Patriot Act increases the government’s power to spy in the following areas:
- Records searches. It expands the government’s ability to look at records on an individual’s activity being held by a third parties. (Section 215)
- Secret searches. It expands the government’s ability to search private property without notice to the owner. (Section 213)
- Intelligence searches. It expands a narrow exception to the Fourth Amendment that had been created for the collection of foreign intelligence information (Section 218).
- “Trap and trace” searches. It expands another Fourth Amendment exception for spying that collects “addressing” information about the origin and destination of communications, as opposed to the content (Section 214).
The result is unchecked government power to rifle through individuals’ financial records, medical histories, Internet usage, bookstore purchases, library usage, travel patterns, or any other activity that leaves a record. Making matters worse: The government no longer has to show evidence that the subjects of search orders are an “agent of a foreign power,” a requirement that previously protected Americans against abuse of this authority. The FBI does not even have to show a reasonable suspicion that the records are related to criminal activity, much less the requirement for “probable cause” that is listed in the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution. Judicial oversight of these new powers is essentially non-existent.
The Patriot Act violates the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. The Fourth Amendment, which protects us from unreasonable seizures and searches and prohibits the issuing of a warrant without “probable cause” (as defined by the Attorney General), is undermined in the act, which states that if the warrant keeps any tangible property or wire or electronic communication from being seized, it can be delayed. The court can extend the delay indefinitely. The Fifth Amendment protects our right to habeas corpus, due process, and keeps our private property from being taken for public use without “just compensation.” Not only is compensation not mentioned in the act, judicial review and habeas corpus are explicitly disregarded. There is also no right to appeal in such a case, and the final word is left to the Supreme Court with its “Rule of Decision.”
2001- Amerithrax Reaches Congress
Two more anthrax letters, similar to the ones sent to media companies and bearing the same Trenton postmark, were dated October 9, three weeks after the first mailing. The letters were addressed to two Democratic Senators, Tom Daschle of South Dakota and Patrick Leahy of Vermont. At the time, Daschle was the Senate Majority leader and Leahy was head of the Senate Judiciary Committee. On October 15, 2001, Leslie Grant, the intern working for Tom Daschle, opened a letter to the senator to find two grams of B. anthracis spores along with the following text:
The preparation of anthrax spores in the Daschle letter was, unlike the text of the letter, extremely sophisticated. Due to the aerosolized (“floaty”) nature of the prepared spores, a characteristic not easily achieved since in nature the spores tend to clump, many people in the Hart Senate building tested positive for exposure. There was general shock as it was discovered that the spore preparation, behaving essentially like smoke, had quickly drifted off and contaminated much of the building.
At least 22 people developed anthrax infections, 11 of whom contracted the especially life-threatening inhalational variety. Five died of inhalational anthrax: Robert Stevens; two employees of the Brentwood mail facility in Washington, D.C. (Thomas Morris Jr. and Joseph Curseen) and two whose source of exposure to the bacteria is still unknown. The Hart Senate building had to be closed and the senators with offices there relocated.
The unopened Leahy letter was discovered in an impounded mailbag that had been misdirected to the State Department mail annex in Sterling, Virginia, because a ZIP code was misread; a postal worker there, David Hose, contracted inhalational anthrax.
All the letters were copies made by a copy machine, and the originals were never found. Each letter was trimmed to a slightly different size. The senate letter uses punctuation, while the media letter does not. The handwriting on the media letter and envelopes is roughly twice the size of the handwriting on the senate letter and envelopes.
The envelopes addressed to Senators Daschle and Leahy had a fictitious return address:
Franklin Park NJ 08852
Franklin Park, New Jersey exists, but the ZIP code 08852 is for nearby Monmouth Junction, New Jersey. There is no Greendale School in Franklin Park or Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, though there is a Greenbrook Elementary School in adjacent South Brunswick Township, New Jersey.
2001- Congress Threat Level Rises
The Intelligence Agencies noted that terrorist retaliation was expected now that Afghanistan was being bombed. Congress was said to be a prime target. Members of Congress were advised to hide their identities. “On Capitol Hill members of Congress were discouraged from wearing their congressional pins when they are away from the Capitol.” Moreover, they were “advised for security reasons to avoid using license plates or anything else that would identify them as members of Congress.”
On October 11 the FBI issued its most specific warning since 9/11, saying that “additional terrorist acts could be directed at U.S. interests at home and abroad over the ‘next several days.’” The warning included all types of terrorist attacks and specifically referred to the Capitol as a possible target. Mention was made of crop-duster planes, which were being reported widely in the news as especially effective methods of delivering large quantities of biological or chemical agents.
2001- Afghanistan- Operation Enduring Freedom
The September 11 attacks were blamed on Osama bin Laden. Even though Osama bin Laden was from Saudi Arabia (as well as the highjackers), he was believed to be living or hiding in Afghanistan. President Bush demanded that the Taliban, hand over bin Laden. The Taliban declined to extradite him unless they were provided clear evidence of his involvement in the attacks, which the US dismissed as a delaying tactic.
On 7 October 2001, President Bush launched Operation Enduring Freedom with the United Kingdom and thus, began the invasion of Afghanistan. To justify the War, the Bush administration claimed that Afghanistan only had “selective sovereignty”, and that intervention was necessary because the Taliban threatened the sovereignty of other states.
The combat operations that took place on 7 October 2001 included a mix of strikes from land-based B-1 Lancers, B-2 Spirit and B-52 Stratofortress bombers, carrier-based F-14 Tomcat and F/A-18 Hornet fighters, and Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from both U.S. and British ships and submarines.
The initial military objectives of OEF, as articulated by President George W. Bush in his address to the country on Oct 7, included the destruction of terrorist training camps and infrastructure within Afghanistan, the capture of al-Qaeda leaders, and the cessation of terrorist activities in Afghanistan.
2001- Amerithrax Begins
October 3 would mark the first diagnosis of anthrax following the September 11 attacks.
On September 30, photo editor Robert Stevens, who worked at the Sun tabloid, published by AMI, came down with “flu-like symptoms” and crawled into the backseat of his car to rest, letting his wife take the wheel. He had inhalation anthrax. His illness would be diagnosed on October 3 and he would die on October 5.
A set of anthrax letters had been sent by US mail to various media companies. The letters had a Trenton, New Jersey postmark dated September 18, 2001. It is not known how long it took the letters to reach their destination or when the letters were actually opened, as the symptoms of anthrax can take several days to develop.
Five letters are believed to have been mailed at this time to ABC News, CBS News, NBC News and the New York Post, all located in New York City, and to the National Enquirer at American Media, Inc. (AMI) in Boca Raton, Florida.
Only the New York Post and NBC News letters were found; the existence of the other three letters is inferred because individuals at ABC, CBS and AMI became infected with anthrax. Scientists examining the anthrax from the New York Post letter said it appeared as a clumped coarse brown granular material looking like dog food.
The New York Post and NBC News letters contained the following note:
The image of the original note is the one that was sent to NBC addressed to Tom Brokaw.
2001- The Patriot Act Deadline Hits A Snag
In the Washington Post October 3 article: “Anti-terrorism Bill Hits Snag on the Hill; A dispute Between Senate Democrats, White House.” The article’s author, John Lancaster noted that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick J. Leahy accused the White House of reneging on an agreement.” The issue was “a provision setting out rules under which law enforcement agencies could share wiretap and grand jury information with intelligence agencies.” Leahy had been under the impression that his negotiations with the White House had produced an acceptable compromise; suddenly he discovered the compromise had been rejected.
Attorney General John D. Ashcroft accused the Senate of delaying legislation that he says is urgently needed to thwart another terrorist attack. Ashcroft said that the Senate was not moving with sufficient speed and that “Talk” would not prevent terrorism, adding that he was deeply concerned with the rather slow pace at which the legislation was moving.
The Washington Post reported that Senate Majority Leader Thomas A. Daschle supported Pat Leahy and said that he “doubted the Senate could take up the legislation before next week.” In other words, both Leahy and Daschle intended to violate Cheney’s October 5 deadline.
2001- Pressure To Meet New Patriot Act Deadline
On September 30 a major administration offensive began, with the aim of putting pressure on Congress to meet Cheney’s new deadline of October 5. Among the members of the executive branch stepping forward were, in addition to Ashcroft, White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson. Card said on television that “terrorist organizations, like al Qaeda…have probably found the means to use biological or chemical warfare.” Tommy Thompson, trying to strike a more reassuring note, assured his television viewers that “we’re prepared to take care of any contingency, any consequence that develops for any kind of biological attack.”
The first line in the Washington Post’s October 1 article on the topic was: “Bush administration officials said yesterday there will likely be more terrorist strikes in the United States, possibly including chemical and biological warfare, and they urged Congress to expand police powers by Friday [Oct. 5] to counter the threat.”
An op-ed by Maureen Dowd appeared in The New York Times on September 26 with the title, “From Botox to Botulism.” The article’s theme was that naïve “boomers” were living in the delusion that “they could make life safe.” Upper middle class New York women were carrying Cipro, Dowd claimed, in their “little black Prada techno-nylon bags” due to widespread fears of an anthrax attack. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) was the antibiotic recommended at the time against anthrax.
On September 27 The New York Times followed Dowd’s article with, “Anthrax Scare Prompts Run on Dubious Drug.” “We can’t keep it in stock,” says Sebastian Manciameli, a pharmacist at Zitomer Pharmacy on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, referring to Cipro.
2001- Patriot Act Deadline Extended
Congress had not been prepared to pass the Patriot Act as quickly as Ashcroft wanted and failed to meet his September 21 deadline. By September 24 the legislation had run into trouble, coming in for criticism in committees of both Senate and House. Ashcroft kept pushing. “Terrorism is a clear and present danger to Americans today,” he said, adding that “each day that so passes is a day that terrorists have an advantage.”
On September 25 questions and criticisms continued to arise around the Patrioit Act, so Bush and Cheney entered the fray. Bush said: “we’re at war…and in order to win the war, we must make sure the law enforcement men and women have got the tools necessary.” Cheney, at a lunch with Republican senators, asked them to do their best to get the legislation through Congress by October 5.
2001- Tools For Counter-Terrorism by John Podesta
On September 19, 2001, former chief of staff and aide to Bill Clinton, John Podesta writes an OP ED in the Washington Post titled “Tools For Counter-Terrorism”. In the article, Podesta illustrates his six point plan to regulate the post 9/11 internet world suggesting that American’s emails and communications should be surveilled.
Tools For Counter-Terrorism by John Podesta (Summarized)
While the administration and Congress have to be mindful of the technological challenges ahead, a number of steps should be taken to strengthen our capacity to conduct surveillance while preserving America’s constitutional principles.
1. First, current statutes set standards that apply only to wiretaps of traditional hardware devices and not to software programs… Such telephone-era laws should be clearly updated to apply to the Internet era, ….. The wiretapping statute should apply equal standards to hardware and software surveillance.
2. Second, the same legal standards should apply to law enforcement’s access to e-mails, telephone calls and cable services… under the current Cable Act, for example, .. law enforcement cannot gain access to subscriber records unless the customer can first contest the issue in court.
3. Third, current law needs to be updated to govern when law enforcement can track the identity of those with whom we communicate. Our “trap and trace” rules come from the era of the traditional telephone network, … state or federal court should be able to issue an order to trace a communication to its source, regardless of whether that communication has been channeled through various telephone or Internet providers.
4. Fourth, current law provides the Justice Department with the ability to seek an order for a “roving tap” to follow the person not the telephone, but, as the attorney general has suggested, that authority may need to be expanded to cover more circumstances… including authorizing roving wiretaps under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
5. Fifth, a constitutional framework needs to be established in law to govern the disclosure to and use by law enforcement of encryption keys held by third-party custodians.
6. Finally, Congress needs to fully fund the FBI’s Technical Support Center, established in the Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, to give the FBI the tools it needs to deal with terrorists employing sophisticated new technology, including encryption.
In the end, we will never know whether these measures would have prevented the terrorist attacks of last week. But we can be confident that these tools, coupled with support from our high-technology community, can help prevent future attacks.

2001- The Patriot Act Announced
Attorney General John Ashcroft announced on September 17, that he would soon be sending an anti-terrorism proposal to the U.S. Congress and that he would ask Congress to enact the legislation by Friday, September 21. Given the length, complexity and importance of the bill (the Patriot Act). He was asking Congress to act with blazing speed.
On the same day, September 17, an article by Rick Weiss appeared in the Washington Post entitled, “Bioterrorism: An Even More Devastating Threat.” Weiss explained that:
“Biological attacks can be far more difficult to respond to than conventional terrorist attacks. For one thing, they are covert rather than overt; for days, no one would know that one had occurred. That’s a huge problem for a disease like anthrax.”
2001- Attacks On September 11
On September 11, 2001, four passenger airliners operated by two major U.S. passenger air carriers (United Airlines and American Airlines)—all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for San Francisco and Los Angeles—were hijacked by terrorists.
Two of the planes, American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175, were crashed into the North and South towers, respectively, of the World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan. Within an hour and 42 minutes, both 110-story towers collapsed at free-fall speed into their own footprint. The event was aired on live television as the second plane hit and each tower fell.
A third plane, American Airlines Flight 77, was crashed into the Pentagon (the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense) in Arlington County, Virginia, which led to a partial collapse of the building’s west side.
The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was initially flown toward Washington, D.C., but crashed into a field in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after its passengers thwarted the hijackers.
No plane hit building 7, but at 5:20 pm building 7 collapsed into its own footprint in 6 and ½ seconds at free fall speed. Building 7 was an Emergency Command Center that had bullet and bomb resistant windows, It’s own air and water supply and protection from 160mph wind.
This was the single deadliest terrorist attack in human history and the single deadliest incident for firefighters and law enforcement officers in the history of the United States, with 343 and 72 killed, respectively. The attacks resulted in 2,977 victim fatalities and over 25,000 injuries.
2001- US Stock Options Market
Like four days before in Chicago, unusual trading in the US stock options market occurs. An extraordinary number of trades were betting that American Airlines stock price would fall. The trades are called “puts” and they involved at least 450,000 shares of American Airlines. A very unusual event, which immediately caused alarm bells to go off.
2001- Chicago Board Options Exchange
On Friday, September 7, 2001, unusual trading was noticed on the Chicago Board Options Exchange. An extremely unbalanced number of trades betting that United Airline’s stock price would fall occurred all at once.
2001- Robert S. Mueller Becomes Director Of FBI
President George W. Bush nominates Robert Swan Mueller III for the position of FBI director on July 5, 2001. The Senate unanimously confirms Mueller as FBI director on August 2, 2001, voting 98–0 in favor of his appointment. He had previously served as acting deputy attorney general of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) for several months before officially becoming the FBI director on September 4, 2001.
2001- The Twin Towers
Since the government built the Twin Towers, the taxpayers owned them. The government, under George W. Bush decided to lease the towers for 99 years. They were leased to Larry Silverstein on July 24, 2001 and he became landlord. Silverstein immediately began to replace the security personnel, and placed insurance policies on the towers to cover for acts of terrorism.
The President’s younger brother, Marvin P. Bush was the director of Securacom, and Wirt D. Walker III, a cousin of the Bush brothers was CEO of Securacom. The Securacom company provided electronic security for the World Trade Center and Washington’s Dulles Airport. Securacom installed an 8.3 million dollar security system in the World Trade Center.
