The intelligence committees of the Senate and House of Representatives plan to hold a series of hearings through the end of the year, with the proceedings to be opened to the public from the end of this month. The probe is touted to be a thorough investigation into the events of September 11 and whether or not they could have been prevented. As independent research has highlighted, the Bush administration not only had prior knowledge of the terrorist attacks, but actually ran the entire operation. This will strike the naive reader as a bold statement indeed. The information I cite that enables me to make it is as voluminous as it is disturbing. If you are unaware of such documentation, I suggest you make time for a visit to the prior knowledge archive.

The investigation is set to be a complete whitewash. The recent media blitz concerning what the government knew before 9/11 was an orchestrated campaign to put the real evidence of government complicity in the shadows. This enabled the CIA and the FBI to dismiss this watered down issue as one 'intelligence failure' after another.

The House and Senate committees comprise of several well-meaning representatives with good voting records and honourable reputations. However, both groups are dominated by individuals who owe allegiance to interests that directly conflict with the promise of a balanced inquiry.

The Carlyle Group, a secretive Washington, D.C., investment firm managing some $14 billion in assets, including stakes in a number of defense-related companies, is making substantial profits from the war on terrorism. Carlyle also donated a total of over $57,000 to various members of the two panels who, if this were not a dummy operation, would be required to investigate them. Carlyle number just one of numerous companies feeding the war machine that have bankrolled the make-up of the 9/11 probe. If the war on terrorism took a blow from this investigation, so would these representative's bank balances. Where is the incentive for a fair hearing? Where is the balance?

Many of the committee members have already stated their position on pre-9/11 warnings. They have rubbished the very issue they are about to 'investigate.' Likewise, several had a direct hand in crafting the USA Patriot Act. This legislation defines anyone who breaks the law as a terrorist and allows the authorities to search your home without you even knowing about it. These people are put in office to uphold the US Constitution and yet have actively dissected it. September 11th justified the Patriot Act in their eyes. They are not about to humiliate themselves by questioning this justification.

Furthermore, a disturbing majority of the House and Senate representatives hold membership to elite organisations publicly sworn to destroying America in favour of a globalist one world order system. This trend ranges from the now public US centred Council on Foreign Relations through the Trilateral Commission to the quasi-secret internationalist Bilderberg Group. At the end of the spectrum we even see occult influences like Skull and Bones along with the Freemasons. The justification for a zealously ordered One World Government is chaos. Terrorism is the premier method for fomenting this chaos. As a result, any proper investigation that would reveal the source of terrorism is out of the question.

The souls of our 'representatives' have already been bought and sold. This is why the House and Senate investigations will only achieve their original agenda, to shut down the 9/11 case for good. The whitewash conspiracy will dwarf the Warren Commission, enabling the globalist's terrorism paradigm to rage on. This only emphasises the importance of the underground media in reaching out to the people with the truth.

Well, initially he didn't look like too much of a bad guy, but then I found his actual website & I wonder exactly how devoted  to this 9-11 probe he actually is:

"While some critics have tried to make political hay with the outrageous suggestion that the president was given specific information that could have prevented the tragedies of last Sept. 11, this is no time to revert to partisan politics." As chairman of the House Terrorism and Homeland Security Subcommittee, I can say that the intelligence information was as vague and nonspecific as most everything else coming out of the intelligence community on terrorism at that time. That said,  we should not be distracted from the critical issues we need to address by political mudslinging." For this reason, Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and I, along with several other colleagues, have introduced a bill that will make great strides in eliminating the stovepipes that exist in the intelligence and law
enforcement worlds with respect to  the sharing of vital information and helping various computer systems communicate together."

The company paid him $1.3 million in 1999, according to the financial disclosure statement Harman filed during her 2000 House race. She declined to list his salary in her 2000 filing The couple also have a variety of other investments to supplement Harman's Congressional salary, and her financial disclosure statement revealed a net worth of more than $53 million. Her husband's holdings in Harman International Industries alone are worth between $50 million and $100 million, up significantly from between the $10 million and $50 million she estimated in 1999. The Harmans also have investment funds with holdings in commercial real estate property throughout the Washington, D.C., as well as Mexico, Argentina, Germany and Italy."

"The Intelligence Committee is a key one for the congresswoman, who as the representative of the 36th District, has major  intelligence equipment contractors as her constituents. The new generation of spy satellites, a top-secret project out of a low-profile federal agency called the National Reconnaissance Office, is believed to be bigger in scope than the Manhattan Project, with a cost estimated at $25 billion over 20 years. Two contractors
from El Segundo, Raytheon and Boeing, are  involved in building the new satellites. Harman's position on the Intelligence Committee means she is one of the few people in the country who is regularly briefed on this highly

RON WYDEN (http://wyden.senate.gov/)

WYDEN CALLS FOR TERRORIST TRACKING SYSTEM
U.S. Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) today introduced legislation creating a national Terrorist Identification Classification System, or "TIC List," to track and share information about known and suspected international terrorists and terrorist organizations that might threaten United States citizens or interests. Wyden, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, proposed the creation of a centralized database comprised of terrorist-related information from the entire U.S. intelligence community and accessible to Federal, State and local law enforcement agencies. The Chair of the Select Committee on Intelligence, Sen. Bob Graham (Skull and Bones, CFR), is a cosponsor of the bill.

Inhofe has also already declared his bias...

Infohe Blasts Bush Critics on Intelligence Briefing
It is especially outrageous for them to insinuate that President Bush could have prevented the September 11 attacks. Spreading such an obvious lie is despicable."

"During the 99th Congress (1985-86), Lugar served as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, restoring its power and  eminence and earning the moniker of "most influential Republican voice in foreign policy on Capitol
Hill," from New York Times journalist R.W. Apple Jr."

"As a Navy ensign in the late 1950s, Lugar served in the highly sensitive position of naval intelligence briefer. He arose at  2:30 a.m., memorized overnight intelligence reports from around the globe and summarized them
verbally for Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Arleigh Burke, the CIA Director, cabinet secretaries, and members of Congress."
