Leak highlights family tied to 9/11 hijackers, sheds light on royals immersed in Florida real estate. Deena Sabry, Shirsho Dasgupta Miami Herald Members of one of the wealthiest Saudia Arabian families, the husband of a Jordanian princess and the son of a Saudi businessman who had been investigated for ties to the 9/11 attackers all rub shoulders in Florida corporation records and the secretive world of offshore havens, a new leak of documents reveals.

Leak highlights family tied to 9/11 hijackers, sheds light on royals immersed in Florida real estate

The documents come from a cache of records — dubbed the Pandora Papers — from 14 financial services firms from across the world that were leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, who in turn shared the documents with the Miami Herald and other news outlets. Setting up offshore companies or trusts is not illegal: It is a way to minimize taxes, and companies may have legitimate reasons to be secretive about their ownership. Recent investigations like OpenLux and the 2017 series Panama Papers, however, reveal how bad actors also sometimes use these havens to launder illicit cash and evade taxes. Fifth richest. WATCH: 9/11 Truth – Lessons Learned? An Oral History of The Onion’s 9/11 Issue. On September 27, 2001, the satirical newspaper The Onion published a new issue following a brief hiatus due to the September 11th terrorist attacks.

An Oral History of The Onion’s 9/11 Issue

It was a precarious time in comedy, with many humorists having yet to return and guys like Letterman and Jon Stewart deciding to play it straight instead of crack a joke. But in their first issue back, The Onion did what it always did — it told jokes. With headlines like “Life Turns Into Bad Jerry Bruckheimer Movie” and “Not Knowing What Else to Do, Woman Bakes American-Flag Cake,” The Onion found the pitch-perfect way to approach humor in a very sensitive time.

Now, nearly 20 years later, the issue is widely considered to be an important part of comedy history — even an important part of the broader cultural history surrounding 9/11. While The Onion’s headquarters back in 2001 may have been in downtown Manhattan, to get the proper context for their landmark issue, the story doesn’t begin in New York. “HOLY FUCKING SHIT: Attack on America” Complete 911 Timeline. This timeline is meant to be a comprehensive resource for anyone attempting to understand 9/11 and the “war on terrorism” in general.

Complete 911 Timeline

Polls show that Americans are extremely uninformed about 9/11. A third of Americans can’t even correctly guess the year 9/11 took place and about half of all Americans mistakenly believe Saddam Hussein had a role in the attacks. But it is vital for everyone to understand 9/11, what led to it, and what the fallout from it has been. Terrorism directly and indirectly affects our lives in many ways and dominates the political discourse. Those of us working on the 9/11 timeline are striving to boil the news on terrorism down to a reasonable level so citizens can stay well informed.

We strive to be objective and keep any layers of interpretation as thin as possible. REVIEW: “Unanswered Questions: What the September 11th families asked and the 9/11 Commission ignored“ Edward curtin It is impossible to overemphasize the importance of this book.

REVIEW: “Unanswered Questions: What the September 11th families asked and the 9/11 Commission ignored“

It is a tour de force that blows away twenty years of U.S. government lies and obfuscations about the mass murders of September 11, 2001, the foundational event of recent times that claimed thousands of victims whose relatives still cry out for truth and justice. Reading Unanswered Questions will roil you to the depths of your soul and illuminate your mind as Ray McGinnis presents fact after fact backed up by almost one thousand endnotes and twelve years of meticulous research. There is nothing speculative about this book. It is not a “conspiracy theory.” 14 ways official reports agreed with “conspiracy theorists” on 9/11.

14 ways official reports agreed with “conspiracy theorists” on 9/11

Licensed under Adobe Stock As part of our season marking the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 “terrorist attacks”, OffG is going to be highlighting some of the research papers and scientific studies done over the years. These studies have been key in pointing out logical flaws and impossible physics used to support the official narrative. Our first paper is “Fourteen Points of Agreement with Official Government Reports on the World Trade Center Destruction”, which was first published in 2008. Authored by five key names in the 9/11 truth movement, Steve Jones, Frank Legge, Kevin Ryan, Anthony Szamboti and James Gourley, this paper collates all the statements from both FEMA and NIST that actually agree with the so-called “conspiracy theorists”, and highlights the holes in the official story. We’ll post the 14 points summarised, and then embed the whole paper below. 1.

Everything Points to Thierry Meyssan Being Right About 9/11. Good Science vs Bad Science and Propaganda: A review of Seven. Dr Piers Robinson Among the many controversies surrounding the events of 9/11 one of the most prominent has been the question of how, many hours after the collapse of the Twin Towers, the 47-storey WTC7 building suffered a total collapse, all in a matter of seconds.

Good Science vs Bad Science and Propaganda: A review of Seven

The persistence of this controversy is hardly surprising. WTC7 was not hit by an airplane, it had suffered from only a few isolated office fires whilst multiple sources on the day were foretelling the collapse of the building, even though in history no steel-framed skyscraper had ever been brought down by fire alone. Questions were hardly mitigated by the remarkable length of time it took NIST (the National Institute for Standards in Technology) to publish their investigation of the collapse nor their eye-brow raising conclusion.

And prior to this the 9/11 Commission Report had entirely ignored WTC7. This then brought the building down symmetrically, in a manner consistent with controlled demolition, in under 12 seconds. Review: Seven. Kevin Ryan The new film Seven (trailer above), directed by Dylan Avery, examines the story of the scientific study of World Trade Center building 7 (WTC 7) recently published by the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Review: Seven

The study was led by structural engineering professor J. Leroy Hulsey and took nearly five years to complete. Operation Encore and the Saudi connection: A secret history of the 9/11 investigation. Behind the scenes, a small team of FBI agents spent years trying to solve a stubborn mystery — whether officials from Saudi Arabia, one of Washington’s closest allies, were involved in the worst terror attack in U.S. history.

Operation Encore and the Saudi connection: A secret history of the 9/11 investigation

This is their story. On the morning of Sept. 11 last year, about two dozen family members of those killed in the terror attacks filed into the White House to visit with President Donald Trump. It was a choreographed, somewhat stiff encounter, in which each family walked to the center of the Blue Room to share a moment of conversation with Trump and the first lady, Melania Trump, before having a photograph taken with the first couple. Still, it was an opportunity the visitors were determined not to squander. CIA Issues Posthumous Apology After New Evidence Clears Osama Bin Laden Of Involvement In 9/11 Attacks. LANGLEY, VA—Admitting that the organization had erroneously rushed to judgment in response to an unimaginable tragedy, CIA director Gina Haspel issued a posthumous apology Wednesday to the family of Osama bin Laden in light of new evidence which conclusively clears the former Al Qaeda leader of any involvement whatsoever in the 9/11 attacks.

CIA Issues Posthumous Apology After New Evidence Clears Osama Bin Laden Of Involvement In 9/11 Attacks

“The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency extends its most sincere and heartfelt apologies not only to Mr. bin Laden, but also to his grieving family and the many friends who stood by his side,” said an emotional Haspel, acknowledging for the first time that the CIA had based its entire 9/11 investigation on the testimony of a single, questionably reliable eyewitness who later recanted. “Our organization acted in haste and without full knowledge, and in doing so, took the life of a loving husband, father, businessman, and highly effective community organizer. US DOJ Agrees to “Comply with Law” Re WTC 911 Grand Jury Petition.

The world of the Criminal Cabal, that is responsible for the thousands of deaths in New York back in September 11, 2001 and millions more in the subsequent War of Terror that the Bush-Cheney administration launched against Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere, is shrinking.

US DOJ Agrees to “Comply with Law” Re WTC 911 Grand Jury Petition

Recently, Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, a nonprofit public interest organization, has announced its receipt of a letter from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, which stipulated its commitment to abide by the law.

The fate of United Airlines Flight 93, the last of the four hijacked planes to go down in the United States on 11 September, holds no mystery for Lee Purbaugh.

He saw what happened with his own eyes. He was the only person present in the field where, at 10.06am, the aircraft hit the ground. "There was an incredibly loud rumbling sound and there it was, right there, right above my head – maybe 50ft up," says Purbaugh, who works at a scrapyard overlooking the crash site. "It was only a split second but it looked like it was moving in slow motion, like it took forever. I saw it rock from side to side then, suddenly, it dipped and dived, nose first, with a huge explosion, into the ground. Apart from, here and there, a finger, a toe or a tooth, all that remained of the 44 souls aboard, churned into the soil or hanging from the branches of nearby trees, were small pieces of tissue and bone. Which is not to assert that the "hero" story is untrue, or even implausible. 1. Explosive Lawsuit Shows Saudi Arabia Funded a "Dry Run" for 9/11—2 Years Before Attacks. New York, NY — For the first time since that fateful September morning 16 years ago, families of victims of the 9/11 terror attacks are using a new law and are going after Saudi Arabia in lawsuits for their role in the attacks.

New evidence in one major lawsuit now reveals the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington may have funded a “dry run” for the hijackings carried out by two Saudi employees. Congress hands Obama first veto override. Congress overwhelmingly rejected President Barack Obama’s bid to derail legislation allowing families of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks to sue the government of Saudi Arabia, handing him the first veto override of presidency during his final year in office. The Senate took the first step Wednesday, voting 97-1 to override Obama's veto of the 9/11 bill. The House quickly followed with a 348-77 vote. Story Continued Below The sweeping popularity of the legislation — known as the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act — made it basically inevitable that the measure would ultimately become law, despite fierce objections from the Obama administration.

The bill, known informally as JASTA, sailed through the Senate with no objections in the spring and was voice-voted in the House earlier this month. “This legislation is really about pursuing justice,” said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), one of the chief sponsors of the bill, along with Sen. Maryland Sen. Trump: Only Explosives Could Have Brought Down World Trade Towers. Major media ‘memory hole’ US presidential candidate’s expert opinion on WTC Of special note on this September 11, 2001 interview with Donald Trump is the Republican presidential candidate’s important remark concerning how the World Trade Center Twin Towers were likely brought down–through controlled demolition. This prescient observation is being intentionally overlooked by major media in the wake of 9/11’s fifteenth anniversary.

Many of these ‘news’ outlets chose instead to single out a brief and arguably unrelated comment by Trump early on in the exchange–‘bragged’ that he ‘owned the tallest building’ in Manhattan next to the WTC– while failing to recognize and highlight his much more important expert opinion concerning the World Trade Center’s fate alongside those of its inhabitants.

The Joy of Conspiracy Denial. - Advertisement - Recently I read another stinging rebuke of the 9-11 conspiracy theorists for their frightful mishandling of evidence, their will to believe only what gives them psychological comfort, and their general state of delusion. Teaching 9/11 to Conspiracy Theorists. This article was originally written in November 2015. Many have accused this author of teaching “conspiracy theories” to college students. Contrary to critics’ assertions, however, events such as the Sandy Hook School massacre or Boston Marathon bombing were never addressed in any courses taught at his former university. Only in the last college class he taught over a twenty year career in academe (13 of which were spent at Florida Atlantic University) did he have a chance to carefully examine and discuss September 11, 2001, or, more specifically, the US government’s official 9/11 conspiracy theory.
