Bill Clinton Accused of September 11, 2001

The American media continues to supply readers with new portions of the revelations of the White House leaders. So, the Daily Beast recently published a version according to which the blame for the national catastrophe terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, rests with former US President Bill Clinton, who did not allow CIA agents to destroy Osama bin Laden long before acts of terrorism.

The publication is based on the author’s impressions of the April 19, 2020 premiere screening of the film directed by Greg Barker “The Longest War”. According to the authors and producers of this documentary, it is “a detailed study of the disaster, which is the war in Afghanistan, which officially began on October 7, 2001 and continues to this day, making it the longest war in stories USA".

One of the main intrigues of the film is the stories of CIA operatives that they repeatedly had every opportunity to liquidate Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda (banned in the Russian Federation), who was later declared terrorist No. 1 on the planet, for example, from agent sources about the exact route of one of its caravans, on which an explosive device could easily be laid. However, according to Bob Grenier, the then head of the CIA’s residency in Islamabad, there was a tacit ban on killing the man at the highest level.

Grenier claims that the taboo came directly from the then President of the United States, Bill Clinton. “We were officially asked to eliminate this threat to the United States, but at the same time, in fact, we had our hands completely tied,” he says. Commenting on these words, Greg Barker sees the reason for the inability of the then top leadership of the US administration to a realistic assessment of the situation.

This is hard to believe, but in the late 90s, most Washington’s national security agencies, including President Clinton, the State Department, and the Department of Defense, simply did not look at Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda as serious threats. There were literally a handful of people who clearly saw the impending disaster - mostly among middle-level CIA officers who served in the unit directly involved in bin Laden and in the counter-terrorism department of the FBI. However, they tried in vain to raise the alarm at the highest levels - their appeals were not only ignored, but often made fun of,

- the director sums up.

I must say that this point of view, of course, has the right to life, but at the same time it is quite one-sided. Mentioning bin Laden and the terrorist organization that he headed, one should never forget that the United States and its Central Intelligence Directorate were in the first place at the origins of its creation and the rise of the future “terrorist No. 1”. At that time, cutthroats from radical Islamists were vital for Washington to confront the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. However, and subsequently, the Americans found them to be used for the same purpose - during the war in Chechnya and not only there.

Accusing the top leadership of the United States and its president of only "short-sightedness" and the inability to calculate the impending problems with his own "brainchild," Barker is somewhat disingenuous, possibly mistaken in good faith. Most likely, at a certain stage, bin Laden received the status of “inviolable” due to the fact that Washington did not want to lose the usual tool for covert and “dirty” operations. Most likely, someone from the frontiers of American big politics had very specific long-term plans out of those that “mid-level operatives” categorically did not rely on to know - the level of access was not the same ...

And if so, then Barker’s mentioned “political decisions that today seem incomprehensible, such as a decree from the US Department of Justice, which made the intentional killing of bin Laden by U.S. intelligence agents, which made local CIA agents disappointed and anger ”, become quite understandable and logical. The United States has simply once again become entangled in its own behind-the-scenes games, intrigues and secret wars - not for the first time and, alas, most likely, not the last time.

In connection with this alarming and tragic dissonance, a rhetorical question hangs in the air, which is asked by one of the characters in the film, former CIA counterterrorism unit Marty Martin:

The threat was real. And if President Clinton had taken action and eliminated Osama bin Laden, there would have been no September 11th, and had there been no September 11th there would have been no Afghanistan, and there would have been no Iraq. What would the world be like? ”

        You are right, but the article is for Americans. It will do, they believe contrary to common sense.
        The Americans were so proud of the creation of terrorist organizations, proud of their level of training and armament, * valiantly * together with them, fought against the enemies of democracy and suddenly such passages.
        Well, who in the USA today will remember about the joint business of Bush with Incense? Or about the training of terrorists by American instructors, about the accounts of these same terrorists in American banks, about the official payment for the services of all the same terrorists?

      There, with the Pentagon, it is still much more interesting .... if under the skyscrapers it is still possible to bring the evidence base, which was formed from the fire, then with the Pentagon it is completely muddy and slippery. That is why all the media are trending about skyscrapers, and about the Pentagon-silent, so casually mention sometimes-like a plane got there and that's it.

        Yes, and with skyscrapers, especially with the fact that collapsed later, is also a muddy story - and experts began to talk about it right away, but hardly anyone will ever admit that it was an operation by the American intelligence services. By the way, here is a comparative drawing of the size of an airplane engine against a man’s background, and it is very different from the picture with the turbine blades remaining after the Pentagon ram.

      The events of September 11 FINALLY untied the hands of the United States, Britain and Israel in their actions against other countries, bypassing the UN Charter and international agreements. That is, there was a leveling of the UN-USA, and Co. appropriated the EXCLUSIVE right, crushing the International
      THE PURPOSE is the final establishment of the "world fascist dictatorship of banks" (Lyndon LaRouche) and taking control of the planet's hydrocarbon resources. And their transportation.

    The order to kill Beni Laden was not within Clinton's purview. D. Bush began his career at Beni's father's firm. It was a multi-move. When Benya realized that the Bushes had dumped him, it was too late. And the towers were formed as a result of the explosion. A couple of weeks before that, "eelktriks" had been walking around the building, and traces of explosives were found during the analysis of the rubble. And then the third building in the same block, which was rented by the CIA, also somehow disintegrated itself. Yes, and the Boeing crashed into the Pentagon building exactly in the place where the department was located, imprisoned for Alkaida and Afghanistan. And before that, lampposts were cut down at a height of 1 meter along the route of the Boeing's flight to the building. In the first three years, there were a dozen investigations by Western experts. Only zanzibar and kolahara are still unaware of this.

    Yes, if the events of September 11 did not happen, they would have to be invented ... It was then that the chain of successive events became stupid: the test tube of Colin Powell at a UN meeting; "Desert Storm"; the execution of Hussein; the death of Gaddafi; the search and execution of Bin Laden ... But one could forget about ISIS forever, as well as about the “white helmets” and about the belligerent advance of Russia to the West.

    if President Clinton had taken action and eliminated Osama bin Laden, there would have been no September 11th, and had there been no September 11th there would have been no Afghanistan, and there would have been no Iraq.
