Who Killed John O'Neill?

by lesfrerespetards (lesfrerespetards [at]
If you believe the media, John P. O'Neill was simply another innocent
victim killed in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
But you don't need much imagination to suspect something deeper was at
Clearly, O'Neill was a man Osama bin Laden wanted dead. O'Neill had
been a Deputy Director of the FBI, and Osama bin Laden's main pursuer
in the US government. O'Neill had investigated the bombings of the
World Trade Center in 1993, a US base in Saudi Arabia in 1996, the US
embassies in Nairobi and Dar-Es-Salaam in 1998, and the USS Cole last

But once the first plane hit the North Tower, Osama bin Laden wouldn't
be the only man to profit from O'Neill's death. At the moment of
impact, O'Neill became the man who knew too much.

Just two weeks, TWO WEEKS, prior to the attack, O'Neill had left his
job with the FBI. O'Neill had quit because he believed that the Bush
administration had stymied the intelligence agency's investigations on
terrorism. O'Neill charged that it had done so even as it bargained
with the Taliban on handing over of Osama bin Laden in exchange for
political recognition and economic aid. In the ultimate irony, O'Neill
had gone public with these charges at the same time that he was leaving
the FBI to become the head of security at the World Trade Center.

"The main obstacles to investigate Islamic terrorism were US oil
corporate interests, and the role played by Saudi Arabia in it,"
O'Neill reportedly told the authors of an explosive new book, Hidden
Truth, by intelligence analysts Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquie.
Brisard met O'Neill several times last summer and reports that O'Neill
complained bitterly that the US State Department - and behind it the
oil lobby who make up President Bush's entourage - blocked attempts to
prove bin Laden's guilt.

Released just last November, Brisard and Dasquie's book was mostly
ignored by the US media. But it is beginning to cause a stir. Just two
days ago, the story aired for the first time on US television when
CNN's Paula Zahn interviewed former Iraqi chief U.N. weapons inspector
Richard Bulter. "The most explosive charge, Paula, is that the Bush
administration -- the present one, just shortly after assuming office
slowed down FBI investigations of al Qaeda and terrorism in Afghanistan
in order to do a deal with the Taliban on oil -- an oil pipeline across
Afghanistan" Butler said.

Maybe part of the reason Paula left Faux news is because she knew her
right wing bosses would never let her run a story like this one. But
what Paula didn't explore, or even mention, was that O'Neill was not
alive to confirm or refute those charges. What CNN didn't find
interesting was the fact that John P. O'Neill was in his 34th-floor
office in the World Trade Tower when the first of two hijacked planes
hit the building, or that he phoned a son and a friend to reassure them
he was fine.

What the US media have apparently found less interesting than the death
of Clinton's dog is that we have only the government's version of what
happened next. O'Neill is reported to have called FBI headquarters, and
then re-entered one of the towers to help others. The official story is
that O'Neill was inside when the buildings collapsed.

How convenient for the Bush administration that Mr. O'Neill would not
only die in the attack, but also that he would make such a call. Not
only was the Bush administration's most dangerous critic forever
silenced, but he also provided the administration the perfect story to
explain his death.

Can you imagine how the events of the past four months would have
differed had John P. O'Neill, former Deputy Director of the FBI and
head of security at the World Trade Tower at the time of the attacks,
had been alive to tell this story?

Can you imagine the uproar this story would be causing if Bill Clinton
were still president?

As things stand, only time will tell if O'Neill's story is investigated
by the US press that found Monica Lewinsky worthy of two years of our
lives. Certainly, the authors who have reported it are credible. Till
the late 1990s, Brisard was the director of economic analysis and
strategy for Vivendi, the giant French conglomerate that owns Universal
Studios and effective control of USA Networks. He also worked for
French secret services (DST), and wrote for them in 1997 a report on
the now famous Al Qaeda network, headed by bin Laden. Dasquie is an
investigative journalist and publisher of Intelligence Online, a
respected newsletter on diplomacy, economic analysis and strategy. And
Richard Bulter, who put the story in play on the US cable networks, is
hardly an excitable conspiracy nut.

Perhaps the CIA will investigate. But I wouldn't expect much from them.
After all, they were apparently unable to penetrate the same Al Qaeda
network that welcomed in John Walker, a confused 20 year old kid from
California, who is reported to have met bin Laden himself.
Just for a few moments, let’s delve into the world of the conspiracy theorist and make a few assumptions.
Let’s start by assuming that the real motives for the 9-11 attacks were much more than just a desperate attack by Islamic extremists on the West and the real motives and perpetrators are much more sinister - as well as being conveniently covered by a smokescreen of government and media lies.
Let’s say for example - there is a secret government whose aim is control of the world’s remaining resources and ultimately total global domination - as Osama Bin Laden himself said “a government within the government”. This so called “Secret Government” used various intelligence agencies to arrange the attacks, deliberately arranged the collapse of the buildings and arranged a convenient cover story to justify the immediate invasion of Afghanistan. The immediate benefits of this being control of the vast oil resources in the Caspian Basin, not to mention the massive strategic benefits gained by controlling this area.
Suppose a high ranking figure in the FBI is doing his best to track down the leading figures of modern-day Islamic terrorism and just happens to start poking his nose in to business that may cause “issues” for your hidden agenda - what do you do?
Suppose this same FBI character decides to start blabbing to some French intelligence experts about how his efforts to investigate the terrorist activities of one former CIA asset, Osama Bin Laden, are being blocked - what do you do?
Smear him and/or damage his reputation
Make it impossible for him to continue in the FBI
Have him permanently removed from the equation.
The Hit?
Shortly after leaving the FBI, John O’Neill was offered a job offering three times the salary he had previously received - approximately $300, 000
The job was head of security for the World Trade Center.
His first day was the 11th Sept.
He apparently went back into the building to help with the rescue operation and was killed when the building collapsed on top of him
Is this just a coincidence? If it is, it’s a very big one. We’ve all seen films, usually featuring organized crime conspiracies where the whistle blower just happens to get killed in a crash just before giving evidence - is it beyond the realms of possibility that this could be a similar situation?
Hopefully, this will at least have given you some insight into the life of a very brave man.

Who gave the decision of John O'Neills resignement to stop investigating Al-Aqueada accounts?
Who gave the decision to give him a security job at the World Trade Center?
Did John O'Neill meet anyone of the FEMA in the night of September 1oth?

Well I don't know what to say, but I guess I wonder how much the government really knows about what happened on sept 11 or what caused it for sure.

great story A-
by marz
Boy, you are right. If I was the government and I wnated to silence or kill one person, I think the best way to do it would be to make a hugely elaborate scheme involving multiple airplanes, dozens of people, the death of thousands and cost a huge sum of money while risking the future of the entire leadership.

Of course some governments would just quietly make the individual disappear.

Maybe that is too simple.
