White House whistleblower Richard Clarke corroborates key allegations about 9/11.

Ten years after 9/11 the official story is unravelling with new revelations from dissident security expert Richard Clarke, who was the Head of US Counter Terrorism at the White House at the time of 9/11.

Clarke has given this bombshell interview shown in this link  " title=" blocked::">

This interview was given to the film makers who made 911 Press For Truth providing more evidence for what many 9/11 sceptics have been saying for years: the 9/11 attacks were allowed to happen by officials in the CIA who could have stopped them, and mere incompetence cannot be the explanation. Clarke is not saying this was their intent, something that is hard to prove. But the question is now unavoidable: given that 9/11 resulted from gross misconduct by senior officials, why did America start two wars on the back of 9/11 when it should have been investigating and sacking officials at home.

Perhaps more important in the long run: why did the world's corporate media collude with an obviously flawed 9/11 story, and why did America's NATO allies fail to ask any questions before joining in?

Richard Clarke, the White House anti-terror czar had seen his power diminished by the Bush regime prior to 9/11, and after 9/11 wrote an intriguing book "Against all Enemies". This is a reference to the US oath of allegiance "against all enemies foreign and domestic". Note the "and domestic".

The book contained several bombshells but the mainstream media failed to follow up the leads Clarke offered and the book was ignored by many 9/11 sceptics because it ostensibly supported the official 9/11 story. Now Clarke is stirring things up again, drawing attention to one of the many crucial holes of the official 9/11 story: the failure to explain why the FBI was blocked from investigating some of the people who were later named as 9/11 hijackers. This was systematic and happened not to one FBI operation but to three that we know of.

Clarke has corroborated many of the claims and possibilities raised in this writer's book 911 The New Evidence. In particular he has confirmed that the CIA took a decision to protect the suspected 9/11 hijackers from investigation by the FBI, by law the lead agency in anti-terrorism matters. This bombshell confirms what many sceptics have been saying for years. Clarke concurs with 911 The New Evidence too over the three key suspects: Cofer Black, head of the CIA counter terrorism unit, the then CIA boss George Tenet (who later received a severe reprimand form his own Inspector General for undisclosed failings on 9/11) and the head of the CIA's Osama Bin Laden unit who has now been named as Richard Blee.

Clarke has confirmed that not only the FBI but the military were blocked by the CIA. The unnamed secret military unit that was also ordered off the case could be the Able danger team, who say they identified alleged 9/11 ringleader Mohammed Atta as a key terrorist well before 9/11. Or it could refer to the mysterious Catchers Mitt operation referenced in 911 The New Evidence. In one of the many unlikely coincidences of 9/11, the same operational name was attached to the reinforcement of the section of the Pentagon Wall which was hit in the attacks.
