Chapter II – The Planes of 9-11
The Planes of 9-11
A little-known and privately-held aircraft leasing company created by the Israeli military intelligence is connected to the Mossad-run airport security and passenger screening company at the center of the “false flag” terror network of 9-11.
I am not like those who claimed to be 9-11 researchers, but who now say they have “moved beyond 9-11.” How can anyone abandon the pursuit of the truth about 9-11 before the crime has been solved? During the decade after the terrorist attacks in which some 3,000 innocent people died, not one victim’s lawsuit went to trial. All but one of the 9/11 families had been pushed into out-of-court settlements. In May 2011 U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein said he would impose a time limit of one month on the trial for the family of Mark Bavis, the only family that had not settled.
How can Americans tolerate such injustice for the 9/11 families? How can we forget the hundreds of people who were roasted alive in the burning twin towers? How can we ignore the death and destruction that we, as a result, have wrongfully inflicted on the innocent people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and Palestine? Who can accept corrupt and irresponsible administrations dragging our military from one illegal war to another in the utterly fraudulent “War on Terror,” which the Bush administration promised will last for generations?
Vice President Dick Cheney said the U.S. must be prepared to fight the “War on Terror” for decades.
If we, as Americans, don’t demand the truth about 9-11, who and what do we really stand for? The policies of the Bush and Obama administrations were based on an unproven interpretation of the events of 9-11. What does it mean to be a citizen of “the land of the free and the home of the brave” if we allow our minds and our nation to be so easily hijacked by government lies and propaganda? After being attacked by undercover police at my home in August 2006 and maliciously prosecuted in a seriously flawed trial, I increased my efforts to solve 9-11. As the cover-up became more obvious and the guilty parties revealed themselves it made sense to intensify the pressure, not give up.
I cannot abide mass murder, occupation, and genocidal wars of aggression. Nor can I accept the corruption of our values and destruction of our basic American rights to suit an artificially imposed “War on Terror.” With the passage of time, it has become quite clear that 9-11 was carried out in order to kick-start the perverse Zionist Zeitgeist known as the global “War on Terror” with its pre-planned wars of aggression, conquest, and occupation.
Guantanamo – An affront to American values
In December 2001, veteran German intelligence professionals told me that 9-11 had been executed by a state-sponsored criminal network and had required years of planning. Eckehardt Werthebach, the former president of Germany’s domestic intelligence service, Verfassungsschutz, told me in 2001 that “the deathly precision” and “the magnitude of planning” of the 9-11 attacks would have required “years of planning.” Such a sophisticated operation, Werthebach said, would require the “fixed frame” of a state intelligence organization, something not found in a “loose group” like the one allegedly led by Mohammed Atta while he studied in Hamburg.
If Werthebach’s analysis is correct, and I have every reason to believe it is, the official version is nothing but a pack of lies. This would mean that the members of the criminal network are still occupying the highest positions of power in the U.S., Israel, and other nations. The members of this network are dedicated to preventing the evidence from being released because it would expose the real perpetrators. This is the only logical reason why the 9-11 evidence has been suppressed, the investigation controlled, and the litigation and discovery processes obstructed.
At this point, it should be clear that 9-11 will never be solved by the federal government, politically appointed investigators, law enforcement agencies, or the corrupt courts. These controlled agencies, like the Zionist-controlled media, are only interested in controlling the information and preventing the real truth from being revealed. This crime will only be solved by concerned and dedicated independent researchers.
THE ZIONIST STRATEGY
9-11 was a very sophisticated operation, as Werthebach said, which required the “fixed frame” of a state intelligence organization. It was carefully planned years in advance and carried out for one strategic purpose: to kick-start the Zionist-planned “War on Terror.”
The rabid Zionist Neo-Cons who dominated the Bush administration pushed the “War on Terror” with its criminal wars of aggression, occupation, and Balkanization in the Middle East as the strategic response to 9-11. Likewise, the Zionist media moguls, who dominate the U.S. mass media, promoted the “War on Terror” as the suitable and proper response to the terror atrocity, a crime of mass murder which they refused to investigate.
An Israeli official named Oded Yinon revealed the Zionist strategy to Balkanize the entire Middle East into ethnic mini-states in the early 1980s. The plan for a global “War on Terror” to accomplish this goal has been articulated since the mid-1980s ad nauseam by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister of the extreme right-wing Likud party. The Israeli military’s plans to realize these strategic goals had evidently been in the works for at least three decades before 9/11.
THE HOAX OF 9-11
9-11 is, in fact, a gigantic hoax. Only by exposing the terrorist masterminds behind 9-11 will we reveal the criminals behind the fraudulent “War on Terror” and the epidemic of “false flag” terrorism that plagues the world. False flag terrorism is a crime designed and committed with the intention that the blame will fall on a targeted faction, state, or organization. The media outlets, which the criminals control, facilitate the blame game by promoting the false version and stifling any independent investigation or truthful analysis of the crime.
After all, 9/11 remains an unsolved crime. It is, however, rather obvious who is responsible for blocking discovery and obstructing justice for the victims and their relatives. At every critical point where the events and circumstances of 9-11 should have been investigated and discussed, there has been a Zionist, a dedicated devotee of the State of Israel, occupying a key position and acting as the controller and censor of evidence – the gatekeeper of information.
I have seen this pattern in earlier cover-ups. The same pattern was used with the sinking of Estonia in the Baltic Sea (1994) and the U.S. government’s (NTSB) investigation of the downing of TWA Flight 800, two of the most egregious examples of government cover-ups in modern times. In each case, the three critical phases of the cover-up: investigation and access to evidence, media interpretation of the event, and related litigation, were all tightly controlled to prevent any meaningful discovery of what had really caused the disaster.
Bernard S. Loeb, Director of Aviation Safety at the NTSB, summarized the TWA 800 investigation: “We cannot be certain that this, in fact, occurred, but of all the ignition scenarios we considered, this scenario is the most likely.”
The people who are preventing the discovery of the facts in such cases are actually complicit in covering-up crimes of mass murder. Logically, there can be no reason for dedicated Zionists to obstruct the investigation of 9-11 other than to conceal the evidence of Israeli and Zionist involvement in the crimes.
Michael Chertoff, as Assistant Attorney General, headed the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice. Chertoff oversaw the non-investigation of 9-11 which resulted in the massive destruction of the steel – crucial evidence – from the World Trade Center. Chertoff went on to head the Department of Homeland Security, where he continued to control access to the evidence through the Sensitive Security Information (SSI) program.
The FBI, for example, under the command of the Israeli dual-national Michael Chertoff, is responsible for the confiscation of the crucial evidence from 9-11, evidence which has been withheld to this day. This evidence includes video tapes of the Pentagon attack and physical pieces from the different aircraft involved. This evidence is critical to prove what happened and which aircraft were involved in the attacks – but the FBI has refused to release this evidence. Neither President George W. Bush nor the U.S. Congress demanded that they do so. Under President Barack Obama the 9/11 cover up and the war in Afghanistan continued. The destruction and suppression of crucial evidence from 9-11 and the lack of a real investigation indicate that a culture of corruption and lack of transparency exist at all levels of government.
The appointed federal judges Alvin K. Hellerstein and Michael B. Mukasey, and the former assistant attorney general Michael Chertoff, who now heads Homeland Security, have not worked since 9-11 to hide the critical evidence and block discovery in order to protect fanatical Arab Muslims or conspiratorial Jesuits. The efforts of these dedicated Zionists have been exerted to protect Israel, the foreign state to which they are wholeheartedly devoted.
U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein managed the 9-11 tort litigation in which not one single wrongful death case went to trial in the decade following the atrocity. Hellerstein has close family ties to Israel – and the Israeli defendant ICTS.
The Zionist role in 9-11 cover-up is obvious. The players who are involved in obstructing justice are known. Patriotic Americans must not abandon the pursuit of the truth. For those who died on 9-11 and in its aftermath, for our nation and our posterity, we are obliged to find and expose those who are responsible for the crimes and cover-up of 9-11.
THE EVIDENCE OF ISRAELI INVOLVEMENT
I have pursued the leads of Israeli involvement simply because the evidence indicates that the Israeli military and intelligence had prior knowledge and involvement in 9-11. The five jubilant Israeli Mossad agents who were caught celebrating and filming themselves in front of the destruction of the World Trade Center, and their subsequent public statements, clearly indicate that the Mossad had prior knowledge of 9/11.
The text message warnings of the attacks sent over the Mossad-controlled Odigo instant messaging system several hours prior to the attacks are further evidence of Israeli prior knowledge. Furthermore, the Israelis have a long history of committing “false flag” terror attacks, particularly against American targets. The Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 and the Israeli terrorist bombings of U.S. and British civilian targets in Egypt during the 1954 Lavon Affair are the first that come to mind.
The USS Liberty after the Israeli attack that killed 34 U.S. servicemen and wounded 171. “The [Israeli] ground control station ordered the aircraft to attack and sink the target and ensure they left no survivors,” Steve Forslund, a former USAF intelligence analyst told the Chicago Tribune.
If the evidence indicated that Saudis, Pakistanis, or even Jesuits were behind the attacks, I would investigate them. The evidence, however, points to Israelis being involved – so I look there. There has been no independent investigation of 9-11 done by the controlled media other than Carl Cameron’s now deeply-buried four-part series on FOX News in December 2001. Think about this for a minute. The mass media in the land of the “free press” has not done any independent investigation about the crime of the century.
The evidence of Israeli involvement in 9-11 is too obvious, so senior editors in the controlled media don’t let their journalists even approach the subject. The journalists of the “free press” in the United States are, unfortunately, confined to the same “Auschwitz of the Mind” as the American public they write for. They know very well that to touch the subject of Israeli involvement in 9-11 would be like touching a live wire. Likewise, when it comes to tracking the Israeli criminal network that has operated in the United States for decades, the U.S. media is simply a dog that won’t bark – or hunt.
The extent of Zionist control over the U.S. mass media, including the Internet, is astounding. The mass media has effectively prevented most Americans from understanding who is really behind the false flag terror attacks of 9-11, and, by extension, the illegal and genocidal wars in Afghanistan, Palestine, Lebanon, and Iraq. The controlled media has also left Americans with an extremely distorted view of the Middle East, Zionism, and the history of the Zionist state, Israel.
Jews from Eastern Europe created an empire of their own in Hollywood in the early 1900s and have influenced how Americans see the world ever since.
ISRAEL – A TERRORIST STATE
Israel is a nation which was founded by terrorists, ruthless men with histories of committing genocidal crimes and false flag terror attacks. Israel was created in 1948 in Palestine on land that had been “ethnically cleansed” of its indigenous Christian and Muslim inhabitants.
Ariel Sharon, the former prime minister who has been in a coma since January 4, 2006, is a prime example of an Israeli terrorist. Sharon came to power in early 2001, about the same time as George W. Bush, some eight months before 9-11. Sharon is a well-known terrorist and génocidaire, i.e. a person who has been involved in genocide.
Sharon has supervised numerous terrorist atrocities, such as the 1982 massacre in Sabra and Shatila refugee camps, in which thousands of innocent people were massacred. Sharon is a Zionist extremist who believes that every Jew should live in Israeli-occupied Palestine. Realistically, what else besides terrorism and bloodshed should one expect from such fanatical and genocidal terrorists?
Ariel “Arik” Sharon (smiling on left) with Moshe Dayan and members of his notorious “anti-terror” Unit 101 (1953-56) which committed a number of atrocities such as the Qibya Massacre of October 1953 in which 69 Palestinians were killed, many whose houses were blown up over their heads. Forty-five houses, a school, and a mosque were destroyed. Sharon, a well known terrorist, became Israel’s prime minister in 2001.
The sons and daughters of the original Zionist terrorists have occupied the highest positions of power in the Israeli government. Tzipora Malka “Tzipi” Livni, for example, the foreign minister (2006-09), is the daughter of the former terror chief of the Irgun. Born in Tel Aviv in July 1958, “Tzipi” is the daughter of Eitan Livni (born Yerucham Bzozowitch in Grodno) a Polish-born Irgun terrorist associated with the King David Hotel bombing.
Steven Erlanger, in a New York Times article about Livni entitled “Israel’s Top Envoy,” dated February 5, 2006, wrote:
Tzipi Livni, 47, is the first woman to serve as Israel’s foreign minister since Golda Meir. Some think she may be the first since Ms. Meir to be prime minister.
She is also a deeply Israeli figure, the daughter of Zionist guerrillas – terrorists in some eyes – who met in the Irgun, the underground organization that fought the British and the Arabs, and that blew up the British headquarters in the King David Hotel in 1946, killing 91 people.
Her father, Eitan, was the Irgun’s head of operations, and on his gravestone is the map of Greater Israel, extending over both sides of the Jordan River. Erlanger suggests that blowing up a hotel and killing 91 people is only seen as a terrorist act “in some eyes.”
Eitan Livni (born Yerucham Bzozowitch in Grodno, 1919) was head of operations for the Irgun. Livni was part of the Irgun mission sent to Britain in the 1940s to kill British political and military leaders.
The fact that the Israeli political leadership and military command decided to launch a vicious attack on a defenseless U.S. reconnaissance ship, the USS Liberty, off the coast of Gaza and kill every man on board illustrates that the Israelis are fully capable of committing such atrocities in their attempts to blame their enemies and achieve their strategic goals. Dedicated Zionists will either deny or defend these acts of Israeli false flag terrorism as the “pragmatic” thing to do — and attack those who disagree as anti-Semitic.
FALSE FLAG TERROR – AN ISRAELI SPECIALTY
The Zionist-controlled media adamantly refused to conduct its own investigation of 9-11, the seminal event of the “War on Terror”. Controlled news outlets like the New York Times promoted the pre-planned wars of aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq with propaganda pieces and false reports about weapons of mass destruction, such as those provided by Judith Miller.
False flag terror acts are an Israeli specialty, as Dr. Kaasem Khaleel points out in his book Wrongly Blamed (2007). “Public terror was invented by the Israelis,” Khaleel wrote citing Christopher Sykes’ book Crossroads to Israel:
To achieve their political goals, Zionists are dependent on terror. These terror acts are used as a distraction. Even though the Israelis are the sources, they effectively blame others. The fabricated terror they commit is an assault on people’s intelligence. Thus people are being purposely misled regarding the real source of these crimes.
The Zionist-controlled media has purposely misled the public about 9-11 for the same reason as the Zionist judges, investigators, and commissioners: to protect the evidence of Israeli involvement from being exposed.
Judith Miller of the New York Times lied about weapons of mass destruction in order to build public opinion for the pre-planned Zionist war of aggression against Iraq.
Deception comes naturally to Judith Miller, the daughter of William Miller, a Jew from Pinsk, Russia. Bill Miller was a New Jersey nightclub owner who made it big as entertainment director of the Sahara, Dunes, Flamingo, and International hotels in Las Vegas.
The controlled U.S. media works with the Zionist criminal network and allows it to flourish by failing to investigate, identify, or report on the companies and individuals involved.
THE PLANES OF 9-11
9-11 was an act of false flag terror in which four allegedly “hijacked” airplanes were used as weapons of mass destruction. There are, however, many unanswered questions about the airplanes involved. There are many observations about these planes which suggest they were not the civilian airliners they are said to have been. The plane that struck the South Tower, for example, had unusual shapes, bulges, and holes, which have led many analysts to believe it was a Boeing 767-300 refueling tanker that had been disguised as a 767-200 United Airlines passenger jet.
Images of the plane that struck the South Tower
Durable parts from the two jets that struck the twin towers, such as landing gear and engines, supposedly landed on buildings and streets of Manhattan. On these engines and landing gear are many numbered time-tracked parts which could prove precisely which aircraft they had been put on and when they had been serviced, but the FBI has refused to present this evidence to make its case. Why wouldn’t the FBI present this evidence if it had it?
The jet engine that landed on Murray Street contains specific numbered and time-tracked parts which would identify exactly which aircraft struck the World Trade Center. Why has the U.S. government withheld this evidence?
The only possible explanation for the FBI’s failure to present this evidence is that the evidence does not match the planes they claim hit the buildings or “crashed” in Pennsylvania. If the planes that were involved in the attacks on the World Trade Center were, in fact, not United Airlines Flight 175 and American Airlines Flight 11, but remotely-controlled tankers painted to look like civilian aircraft, who could have produced such disguised planes and inserted them into the NORAD anti-terrorism exercise that was taking place in the airspace of the East Coast on the morning of 9/11?
ISRAEL AIRCRAFT INDUSTRIES (IAI)
Given the evidence of Israeli prior knowledge, the obvious questions arise: Did the Israelis have the means to carry off such a complex operation? And if they had the means, is there a link between their capability and the events of 9-11? The answer to both questions is yes.
The Israeli military and its intelligence agencies have long had the capability to convert and disguise large-body aircraft in the United States, and their companies that do this kind of work are connected to International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS), the Israeli airport security company that is a prime suspect in the “false flag” terrorism. ICTS was a key defendant in the 9-11 litigation until Judge Hellerstein allowed them to be dismissed from the case in May 2011.
The Israeli military has spawned several aircraft leasing and maintenance companies in the United States since the late 1960s. There is, in fact, a network of Israeli-controlled aviation companies operating in the United States which were all started by Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI), now known as Israel Aerospace Industries. Israel Aircraft Industries is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Israeli Defense Ministry, which produces and maintains planes and missiles.
One of the Israeli military’s aviation companies spawned in the United States is or was an aircraft leasing company named ATASCO, which began operating in the United States in the early 1970s. I began investigating ATASCO in August 2006. As a matter of fact, I spoke with Shalom Yoran, the Israeli chairman of this now defunct Israeli company, about six hours before three undercover police arrived at my house and, without cause or provocation, TASERed me and broke my elbow in front of my family on August 15, 2006.
I had come across Shalom Yoran’s name while researching Amit and Naftali Yoran, the suspicious young Israelis who oversaw cyber-security for the U.S. government and military computers prior to and after 9-11.
Shalom Yoran has an extremely suspicious and unusual profile for an Israeli immigrant to the United States. He was in the original Israeli air force of 1948 and is a founder and former head of Israel Aircraft Industries. Yoran was instrumental in building the IAI into an internationally recognized company and the largest industry in Israel.
Shalom Yoran (born Selim Sznycer, Poland) wearing a fake British uniform in Palestine, 1946. Yoran became the co-founder and head of Israel Aircraft Industries and Bedek.
Before Yoran emigrated to the United States, which is very unusual for Israelis of his age and with his high-level military background, he had spent the previous ten years as senior vice president of IAI and as president of IAI’s parent company, Bedek. Israelis like Yoran don’t usually come to America as immigrants – they are sent there on a mission.
Israel Aircraft Industries was established in 1953 as Bedek Aviation Company, five years after the establishment of the State of Israel. Today, Bedek is the senior group of Israel Aerospace Industries and specializes in aircraft operation, conversion, maintenance, and overhaul. In 1975, when Yoran “left” Bedek and IAI at the unusually young retirement age of fifty, the corporation had 22,000 employees, of which 4,000 worked in the Bedek Division. In reality, Yoran didn’t leave Bedek and IAI at all; he was sent by the Israeli military to the United States to manage one of their most important operations – ATASCO.
In his on-line biographies, Yoran says he was appointed to this position: “When he retired at the age of fifty [ca. 1975], he was appointed the President of Atasco, an American Flight company for cargo shipment and maintenance.”
His 2003 biography on the website of Tel Aviv University (TAU) has a similar tale: “At the age of fifty, Shalom Yoran retired from the Israel Aircraft Industries. In 1978 he moved to the U.S. where he became chairman of ATASCO USA – a private aircraft trading and service company. ATASCO bought and leased airplanes to major airlines around the world. The company also had an aircraft maintenance and modification plant in Smyrna, Tennessee.
“Shalom Yoran continues to be chairman of ATASCO USA,” the 2003 TAU entry noted. How could an Israeli be appointed to be president or chairman of an “American” company, unless that company were actually an Israeli company disguised as an American company? And why would an Israeli company doing business in the United States want to disguise the fact that it is Israeli-owned in the first place?
THE ATASCO-BEDEK CONNECTION
ATASCO USA was, of course, created and owned by the Israeli military and connected to the Mossad, but this information is not easily found. There has only been one article that I have found that mentions what ATASCO has been doing for the past 36 years in the United States, since it was first created by the Israeli Defense Ministry in 1971. That article, entitled “Ugandan Plane Deal Believed Key to Israeli Spy Operation,” was published in the Washington Post of September 11, 1978.
This investigative article, which involved an international team of journalists that included an Israeli, focused on the “mysterious Israeli tycoon and the Mossad, Israeli’s intelligence service,” and how they had provided the Ugandan dictator Idi Amin with two Boeing 707 jetliners as part of an Israeli effort to spy on Libya. The “big winner” and tycoon in this Mossad spying operation was Shaul Nehemia Eisenberg (1921-1997), “the reclusive Israeli entrepreneur at its center.”
Eisenberg was, as the Washington Post reported in 1978, the central figure in the Mossad spying operation on Libya:
The chief Eisenberg firm in these deals was Aircraft Trading and Services Inc., or Atasco. Headquartered in Asia House, Eisenberg’s luxury building in Tel Aviv, Atasco also has branches in the “Eisenberg Building” in New York and in London.
Atasco was put together in 1971 by executives of Israeli Aircraft Industries, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Israeli Defense Ministry that makes planes and missiles.
Eisenberg got into Atasco as an equal partner with Israeli Aircraft for $500,000 in cash. After the 1973 Middle East War, Israeli Aircraft, staggered by scandals, sold its share in Atasco to Eisenberg, leaving him its sole owner.
The rest of Atasco’s original capital, $5 million, came from the U.S. Export-Import Bank, which is supposed to make loans to promote American exports.
The Ex-Im Bank certainly found the right man in Eisenberg. He quickly turned into an eager customer for Pan American Airways’ used Boeing 707s.
Atasco bought 12 or 15 of the advance series “C” 707s that Pan Am was selling and purchased six out of ten earlier series “C” 707s being sold by the airline.
At its Israeli hangars, currently jammed with 707s bearing obscure markings, Atasco remodels the interiors to suit customers, and paints on their proud colors – Iran Air, Tarom of Romania, Uganda Airlines.
In May 1976, Atasco sold the 707 that was once Pan Am’s “Clipper Jupiter” to a firm in Zurich, which dealt it on to Amin.
Intelligence sources say that the head of this Zurich firm is a 15-year veteran of Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and the firm is an agency “laundry.” It exists, these sources say, to pass on Mossad funds for deals in which the Israeli secret service is interested.
The Washington Post, one of the most important newspapers in the United States, is a leading national newspaper of record. Oddly, however, the extremely important information contained in this article about ATASCO was never repeated in any of the subsequent articles in which this mysterious company was mentioned, for example, when Gerald L. Gitner, an aviation executive with Pan Am, TWA, and a host of smaller airlines, was appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ATASCO USA, Inc.
In 1986, when Gitner became CEO of the Israeli-owned company with a documented history of murky business, the company was described as a New York aircraft leasing and brokerage company. ATASCO’s previously published history of involvement in Mossad operations was never mentioned. Gitner, who was CEO of Mossad’s “privately held” aircraft leasing and maintenance company until 1990, was involved in the dismemberment and selling off of the assets of the once prosperous Pan Am and TWA airlines.
In October 1986, when Gitner was appointed CEO of the Mossad-run ATASCO U.S.A. Inc., he was or had been a senior executive with PanAm Corporation and TWA. He was the president of Texas Air Corporation, the holding company for Continental Airlines and New York Air, when he was appointed president and CEO of ATASCO U.S.A., “a private aviation concern involved in commercial aircraft leasing and heavy aircraft maintenance.”
Gitner was also co-founder and president of People Express Airlines. The Houston Chronicle of October 3, 1986, however, only identified ATASCO as “an aircraft leasing and brokerage company.”
EISENBERG – “WORLD ENTREPRENEUR”
In November 1982, when Eisenberg became involved in the Tregaron deal and tried to take over a large piece of prime real estate in Washington, D.C., the Washington Post wrote about Mossad’s “world entrepreneur” and their point man in China – and Panama:
Eisenberg was profiled in a 1981 Business Week article as a businessman of enormous wealth, diversity of business interests, and a proclivity for secretiveness in his dealings. He owns a worldwide network of corporations. His largest company, United Development Inc., was set up in Panama in 1960.
Eisenberg essentially acts as a middleman, according to reports on his dealings, assembling consortiums of manufacturers, builders and banks to construct industrial facilities of all types.
Since Eisenberg was the “sole owner” of ATASCO since 1973, the Mossad’s “aircraft trading and services” company naturally began its murky business on the American continent in Panama. In 1978 the Washington Post reported that there were “frequent but unsubstantiated reports that Eisenberg operates mostly from Central America.” Eisenberg was also the “Panamanian honorary general consul in Tel Aviv,” the Post reported.
The first mention of ATASCO other than the 1978 article in the Washington Post was in the New York Times on October 29, 1981, when it reported that Emery Air Freight had purchased a Boeing 727-100 from Atasco-Panama.
IDF – ISRAELI DRUG FORCES?
Israel Aircraft Industries also has a branch, IAI Sucursal Colombia, in Bogota, Colombia. Colombia is a nation better known for the production and distribution of cocaine than aircraft. Why would IAI establish aircraft leasing and maintenance facilities in Colombia and Panama?
Is airlifting drugs a central part of the IAI operations in Latin America? Does the Mossad use IAI facilities in Colombia to run its own drug smuggling routes to fund its operations? Does Mossad drug smuggling involve American politicians (and intelligence agencies) which it controls through criminal complicity?
Israel is deeply involved in the Colombian drug trade. Here a Colombian military chief tries out Israeli weapons during a visit to Israel.
There are a number of indications that the Mossad is deeply involved in the Colombian drug trade. The horde of Mossad operatives who were disguised as Israeli art students in the years prior to 9-11 were known to have been targeting the offices and personnel of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Why would the Mossad be seeking to penetrate the DEA if it were not involved in drug smuggling?
It is also well known that Israeli gangs are heavily involved in illicit drug smuggling. A disproportionately large number of Israelis have been arrested in Europe and the United States with large amounts of narcotics and synthetic drugs such as Ecstasy. Are these the small fry of a much larger Israeli presence in the illegal drug trade?
The rumors about the Bush and Clinton families being involved in large scale drug smuggling operations are legion. From George H.W. Bush’s days in the Texas oil business and as head of the CIA to his position as a director of the Prozac giant Eli Lilly and Company, the drug trade is a central part of the Bush family legend.
The allegations about Governor Bill Clinton’s involvement in the drug smuggling operation in Mena, Arkansas are also legion. Aircraft were used to smuggle drugs and weapons through the airport in Mena in the 1980s while Gov. Clinton protected the entire operation. “Given the scope and implications of the Mena story, it may be easy to understand the media’s initial skepticism and reluctance,” Sally Denton and Roger Morris wrote in their July 1995 article “The Crimes of Mena”:
Mena, from 1981 to 1985, was indeed one of the centers for international smuggling traffic. According to official I.R.S. and D.E.A. calculations, sworn court testimony, and other corroborative records, the traffic amounted to thousands of kilos of cocaine and heroin and literally hundreds of millions of dollars in drug profits. According to a 1986 letter from the Louisiana attorney general to then U.S. attorney general Edwin Meese, [Adler Berriman Seal, or “Barry”] Seal “smuggled between $3 billion and $5 billion of drugs into the U.S.”
Adler Berriman Seal had been a pilot with TWA from 1966 to 1974, according to his on-line biography. Gitner, who began his career at TWA in 1968 was a vice president when he also left TWA in 1974 to join the much smaller Texas International Airlines.
The numerous reports and allegations of involvement in drug smuggling are what the Bush and Clinton families have in common. These are the families which have dominated the executive branch of the United States government since 1981. There was either a Bush or Clinton in the White House from January 1981 until January 2009. Is the illegal drug business the central criminal activity that the Bush and Clinton families have participated in with the Israeli Mossad?
If the reports, allegations, and rumors are true, the illegal drug trade is where the interests of the Bush family, the Clintons, the CIA, and the Mossad all come together. This would explain the choice to invade and occupy Afghanistan, where opium production is now at record levels after having been nearly eradicated under the Taliban regime. This would also explain the unusual pressure to medicate the 9-11 relatives with mind-altering drugs like Prozac. It appears that drug smuggling could very well be the illegal enterprise at the center of the criminal network behind 9-11. This is a subject that certainly deserves further investigation.
“CLIPPER JUPITER” AND ZIMEX AVIATION
In the 1978 article about Eisenberg and the Mossad the Washington Post reported that ATASCO had sold the Boeing 707, which had been Pan Am’s “Clipper Jupiter,” to a firm in Zurich, which had immediately transferred ownership to Idi Amin in Uganda:
Intelligence sources say that the head of this Zurich firm is a 15-year veteran of Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and the firm is an agency ‘laundry.’ It exists, these sources say, to pass on Mossad funds for deals in which the Israeli secret service is interested.
Pan Am’s “Clipper Jupiter,” with tail registration number N766PA, was sold to a Zurich-based company called Zimex Aviation on May 12, 1976. The same day, Zimex Aviation transferred the plane with a new tail number, 5X-UAL, to Uganda Airlines.
The “15-year veteran of Mossad” would be Hans Ziegler, who headed Zimex as reported in The Oregonian on August 22, 1988:
Charles Hanner, then a Page [Airways] vice president, testified by deposition that he had been introduced to Amin by Hans Ziegler, a veteran agent of Mossad, the Israeli military intelligence service. Ziegler’s Swiss company, Zimex Aviation, had sold a number of aircraft to Middle Eastern potentates and to Amin’s friend Moammar Khadafy, the Libyan dictator.
ATASCO TIES TO 9-11
Gitner reportedly stayed with ATASCO from October 1986 through December 1989. In 1989, Gitner was appointed to head Presidential Airways of Herndon, Virginia. Gitner later served on the board of directors of another Mossad-run company, ICTS, which was one of the key defendants in the 9/11 litigation. Along with a handful of senior Israeli Mossad veterans, Gitner was a director of ICTS from at least 1997 through 2005. Most significantly, he was a director of the Israeli parent company which was responsible for airline security and passenger screening at Boston’s Logan Airport on 9-11.
International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS) International, N.V. is the Mossad-run company that owns Huntleigh USA, the airline security company that oversaw the passenger screening operations at Boston’s Logan Airport on September 11, 2001. How would Gitner be a director or CEO of a Mossad-run company like ATASCO or ICTS if he were not working for the Mossad? Has Gerald Gitner from Boston been working with the Israelis since he began at TWA in the late 1960s? Is this the reason he left TWA and began working for Texas International?
BOEING 767 CONVERSIONS – BEDEK’S SPECIALTY
IAI is “a world leader in aircraft conversion and modernization programs, unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), communication programs and defense electronics,” according to the company’s website. Shalom Yoran’s company, Bedek Aviation Group, reportedly converted its first Boeing 767 from a passenger to cargo jet in early 2000. The converted passenger jet was the first of eleven 767s to be converted for Airborne-Express, according to the Jerusalem Post of April 4, 2000. “Bedek is one of the world’s leaders in plane conversions,” the Israeli newspaper reported.
In early 2001, Bedek delivered a refurbished Boeing 707 refueling tanker for the Israeli air force, according to the Jerusalem Post of February 22, 2001. “The number of [Israeli] refueling tankers is classified,” the Post reported. “The first 707 air refueling tanker converted for the Air Force was delivered twenty years ago.” This Israeli report indicates that Bedek has been converting Boeing aircraft into tankers since the early 1980s.
“The main benefit of this present aircraft is in its versatility, its quick conversion from a refueling tanker to a cargo jet. In this way, the aircraft can be used as a cargo plane in times of peace and a refueling tanker in an emergency,” an IAI statement said.

IAI IN MIAMI – COMMODORE AVIATION
“Boeing has been working with Israel Aircraft Industries Ltd. for 30 years,” the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported in October 1998.
Miami International Airport has long been the site of one of Bedek’s maintenance stations, along with Paris, Moscow, Baku, and Baikal, according to the Jerusalem Post of January 13, 1995. The Bedek operation in Miami was known as Commodore Aviation. IAI and Bedek had “offices in Arlington, Va.; New York City; Princeton, N.J., for its Galaxy Aerospace subsidiary; and in Miami for its Commodore Aviation unit,” according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer article from 1998.
Florida Governor Jeb Bush made a four-day trade mission visit to Israel in November 1999 during which he appealed to the state-owned Israel Aircraft Industries to expand their business operations in Florida. IAI’s Miami-based Commodore Aviation was already the largest Israeli business presence in Florida in 1999 with about 500 employees, the Stuart News (Florida) reported.

In 2003, Commodore Aviation, “part of IAI’s Bedek Aviation Group,” pulled out of Miami, reportedly owing nearly a million dollars to the Miami airport, and moved to Rome, New York, where it renamed its operation the “Empire Air Center.”
“Commodore has been searching for a new location since June 2002 and owes $800,000 in back rent to Miami International Airport, where it’s currently based,” South Florida CEO reported in May 2003, when it announced Commodore Aviation’s move to New York and its name change.
Like ATASCO, Commodore has been generously funded by the U.S. taxpayer. Commodore Aviation actually made money by its move to the former Griffis Air Force Base, where it operates in a massive hangar in which B-52 bombers and tankers were once serviced. The move profited Commodore, which received some $25 million in grants and tax incentives from federal and New York government sources, the Jerusalem Post reported on November 21, 2003. “The whole relocation didn’t cost IAI one dollar,” said Gerry Stoch, New York state’s economic attache in Israel.
