In FTR #335 and FTR #336, Dave Emory continues his analysis of the Nazi tract Serpent’s Walk. These podcasts belong in fact to a wider series of shows on 9/11 that could be called, if I may, the « Connecting the Dots Series ». Published by National Vanguard Books, the same publisher as The Turner Diaries, this book is a blueprint for what is to come rather than a novel. Dave Emory begins the analysis of FTR #335 by recalling the links that exist between Osama bin Laden and Ahmed Huber. Director of the bank Al-Taqwa that helped to finance terrorist organizations such as the Hamas and Al-Qaeda, Huber has been instrumental in connecting extremist elements within the Islamic community with what can be described as the Underground Reich, a Third Reich gone underground at the end of WWII. Among others, he befriended luminaries such as François Genoud, Johannes Van Leers, Ayatollah Khomeini, Amin Al-Husseini, Youssef Nada and the Nazi émigré community in Nasser’s Egypt. Then Emory mentions stock market manipulations that happened just before 9/11, such as short selling, reinsurance fraud and other gambits. See this previous post for more details. In that field of research, the case of Larry A. Silverstein remains intriguing. He leased the WTC just before the attacks, during the summer. He was the one who had the more to gain and the less to lose with the attacks. More broadly, FTR #335 makes the connection between the Bormann Capital Network and some of the financial players who seemed to pull the strings behind the curtains, such as GM, UBS and the continuation of the previous I. G. Farben Nazi cartel. The anthrax scare around 9/11 is also brought up.
In FTR #336, Emory begins with the analysis of Timothy McVeigh’s connections to the Middle East. FBI agents with information related to these connections were prevented from testifying at his trial for the Oklahoma City bombing. Second, Emory recalls a series of elements that one has to bear in mind in order to understand the action that occured behind the scenes before 9/11. According to German investigators, some 70.000 terrorist fighters had been trained by Al-Qaeda by the year 2001. Talking about Germany, Emory recalls with great relevancy that laws in that country allow for the investigations of groups and cells who intend specifically to commit acts on German soil but not abroad. Among examples of this permissiveness, the cases of Mohammed Atta living in an appartment in Hamburg, who was surveilled but not arrested, and of an Iranian-owned airfield outside Hamburg where Middle East men learned to fly a plane strike as incompensible. In effect, pre-existing reports were showing that some Iranian airfield outside Hamburg served to smuggle nuclear material to Iran. Was it the same airfield? Finally, we must also not forget that the people who constructed the atomic bomb in Pakistan apparently had sympathies for Al-Qaeda, which kind of give shivers. Emory mentions as well other dimensions of this puzzle, such as the role played by Irak and the Libyan secret service.
