One World Trade Center Becomes New York City’s Tallest Skyscraper, Floors Still Being Added (VIDEO)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 29, 2012

By DAVID B. CARUSO

NEW YORK — One World Trade Center, the monolith being built to replace the twin towers destroyed in the Sept. 11 attacks, claimed the title of New York City’s tallest skyscraper on Monday, as workers erected steel columns that made its unfinished skeleton a little over 1,250 feet high, just enough to peek over the roof of the observation deck on the Empire State Building.

FBI And CIA ‘Turf War’ Scuppered Secret Plan That Could Have Thwarted 9/11, David Davis Claims

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 28, 2012


Is this just politics within politics or another drama? Otherwise why has it taken so long to come out?:

Infighting between US intelligence agencies delayed a secret plan to tap every phone in Afghanistan that could have helped prevent the September 11 attacks, a senior Conservative MP has claimed.

Speaking in the House of Commons on Wednesday evening, David Davis, the former shadow home secretary, said the American government then attempted to cover up its embarrassment by shutting down a series of court cases, including one in London, that arose from the intelligence operation.

Davis was using the case to provide a warning against proposals by the British government to bring in similar powers in courts that would suppress any embarrassing intelligence failures.

He told MPs that in 1998, the Taliban decided Afghanistan needed a new phone network. As no domestic companies had the necessary expertise, they invited foreign companies to bid for the rights to build the network. The company they chose was called Telephone Systems International.

Based in New Jersey, TSI was owned by one Ehsanollah Bayat, a Kabul-born American citizen – who unknown to the Taliban was also an FBI informer. Read the rest of this entry »

Romania CIA Prison: Central Intelligence Agency Used Secret Makeshift Prison For Its Most Valuable Detainees (VIDEO)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 8, 2011

WASHINGTON — One of the CIA’s most important secrets in the war on terrorism was hiding in plain sight, on a leafy residential street along a busy set of train tracks in Romania’s capital. There, tucked in the basement of a government building, the CIA ran a clandestine prison, former U.S. intelligence officials said.

For years, the building – codenamed Bright Light – housed some of the CIA’s most important terror suspects, including Khalid Sheik Mohammad, the mastermind of 9/11. Even after the detainees were shipped off to Guantanamo Bay in 2006 and reports about the prison began to surface, the Romanian government repeatedly denied any knowledge of its existence.

A joint investigation by The Associated Press and German public television, ARD Panorama, however, located the former prison and unearthed details of the facility where harsh interrogation tactics were carried out.

The Romanian prison was part of a network of so-called black sites that the CIA operated and controlled overseas in Thailand, Lithuania and Poland. All the prisons were closed by May 2006, and the CIA’s detention and interrogation program ended in 2009.

Unlike the CIA’s facility in Lithuania’s countryside or the one hidden in a Polish military installation, the CIA’s prison in Romania was not in a remote location. The building is used as the National Registry Office for Classified Information, which is also known as ORNISS. Classified information from NATO and the European Union is stored there. Former intelligence officials both described the location of the prison and identified pictures of the building.

Honoring the Memory of 9/11 By Honoring the Memory of 9/12

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 12, 2011


What does honoring the memory of 9/11 actually mean? This actually does mean to attempting not to repeat this kind of incident in the future and that is only possible through conversion­. The basis of any problem and solution is the individual­. The present world situation is the result of our way of thinking. Some people are using their maximum effort to divide people and to control others to be so called powerful. If everybody thinks about each other we would not have problems, but we are habitual in our thinking and define everything according to ourselves or group or community or country. Religious persons are also dividing people in the name of religion. The basic of every religion is the same – love. Religion is religion if it unites people and not if divides people. We therefore, need conversion from leaders to masters, religious persons to spiritual persons to achieve a level of World Peace. http://ram­kshrestha.­wordpress.­com/2011/0­3/27/overc­oming-new-­decade-cha­llenges/

9/11 The day America, and the world, changed forever

9/11 Terror attacks: Aerial images taken by the NYC Police Aviation Unit and show the aftermath of the terror attack from the sky (Pic: Rex Features)

It was the day that changed America, and the world. ­A shocked America suddenly discovered it was under ­attack, not by a foreign ­power but by Al Qaeda terrorists, some of whom had lived and worked in the United States.

Unable to fly to America because all transatlantic flights were cancelled, I was called in to present emergency news bulletins on BBC television channels.

We immediately showed the ­unforgettable images of aircraft fully loaded with fuel slicing into the Twin Towers and ­exploding, reducing two of the world’s tallest ­buildings to dust.

Then in the next few hours we were to hear of the astonishing heroism of New York City firefighters and others who risked their lives at the heart of an unimaginable catastrophe.

President George W Bush declared a “Global War on Terror” and promised to fight “the Axis of Evil”. It proved to be a conflict without end. Read the rest of this entry »

Osama Bin Laden Killed By Navy Seals in Firefight – ABC News

Osama Bin Laden was killed not by a drone strike, but up close during a firefight with U.S. troops. He was not living in a cave when he died, but in a million-dollar mansion with twelve-foot walls less than 100 miles from the Pakistani capital.

The U.S. had been monitoring the compound in Abbottabad for months after receiving a tip in August that Bin Laden might be seeking shelter there. He had long been said to be in the mountainous region along the Afghanistan, Pakistan border, hiding in a cave as the U.S. sought to kill him with drone strikes from above. Instead, he was in a house eight times larger than its neighbors, with walls more than 12 feet tall and valued at $1 million. The house had no phone or television and the residents burned their trash. The house had high windows and few points of access, and U.S. officials concluded it had been built to hide someone.

Mr Blair arrived two hours before his hearing was set to begin, pausing briefly to allow photographers to take his picture.

In contrast to his previous evidence session, he was not greeted by hundreds of protesters as he got there before most had assembled.

Andrew Murray, chairman of the Stop The War Coalition, said the former prime minister had “sneaked in under cover of darkness”.

He called on the panel to challenge Mr Blair to “tell the truth” about the legality of the war.

Another protester, Chris Nineham, told Sky News there remained “scepticism” about the hearings.

“There have been four of these inquiries and the truth hasn’t come out,” he said.

Mr Blair has been recalled to explain possible gaps and inconsistencies almost a year on from his last session before Sir John Chilcot and his panel. Read the rest of this entry »
