Is there anything substantive on the JFK case?
Now, let me do a bit of oral history:
On 9/11/2001 I was in federal jail, serving a short sentence for trespassing
into a Navy base in Vieques.
The day before one of my comrades (from my organization, from my committe)
was found guilty of a felony charge of assault on a military officer, during
an anti-military confrontation in the UPR. So the mood was gloomy among us.
We were also waiting for news on a flash strike planned as a result of the
guilty veredict, which we expect to cause some trouble.
At around 800am I went outside to the closed in "yard", with a pulp novel (I
think one on the US special forces) and cigarettes. After a while my
cellmate, also from my org, comes and tells me that a plane had crashed into
one of the buildings.
I said "wow" and continued reading. A crash however spectacular, was nothing
compared to what I had in my mind at the moment. Then came the second plane,
and I went back inside to watch tv. The tvs were set on CNN, Fox News, ABC
News, and MSNBC. I might be mistaken, but one was set on the BBC for the
Now, we started speculating. Was it the Chileans? Naw, we thought, they are
not prone to suicide stuff, and they would have done something on the 30th
anniversary in any case. Then I mentioned that the DFLP had done some air
stuff with ultralights, and they had Syrian-trained pilots. But again, the
DFLP is not prone for the suicide stuff.
Then the news started chanting "Usama", "Osama", "Ushama", "Benladen", "Ben
Laden", "Ben Ladin", "Benladin", "Binladen" "Bin Laden"...
Immediately one of us, an older man, said: "If it was him, it was the CIA".
I didn't pay much attention then. But it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to
see the truth in that, a truth more and more evident with the events that
have happened since, in particular the non-capture of Usama ben Ladin.
But my one single memory is seeing a huge fire in the Washington Mall, with
the comments speculating as to what was it, and the "news ticket" saying
there had been car bombs in the Dept of State and the FBI building. I have
not seen a single re-mentioning of those two things (obviously, the bombs
didn't happen, but I saw the fire with my eyes), and not even an explanation
during that day.
Why? Why were news organizations informed that car bombs had gone off when
none had? What was that fire?
Anyone else remember this fire? Am I crazy?
And of course, the glaringly obvious questions, some raised in Farenheit
911, as to how the Ben Ladin family was extracted out of the USA when even
air ambulances couldn't fly.
