You find below onlinejournal investigative reporter Jerry Mazza's take on this ongoing legal saga that has been dragging along for years,(when did 9/11 happen again ?),and proof that the 9/11 Commission NEVER began much less completed the task of a credible 9/11 investigation.And of course as you can see from the Reuters' report on Judge Alvin Hellerstein's most recent ruling,family members of victim's of 9/11 who are or HAVE BEEN PERSISTENT IN SEEKING THE TRUTH OF WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY(MORE THAN IN RECEIVING A SETTLEMENT TO KEEP QUITE PAID BY THE BUSH REGIME FROM TAXPAYER DOLLARS),HAVE BEEN GETTING THE RUN AROUND FROM U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE ALVIN HELLERSTEIN'S COURT.
First 9/11 damages trials to begin in Sept-judge
Thu Jul 12, 2007 7:24PM EDT
NEW YORK, July 12 (Reuters) - Sept. 11 victims who sued airlines and their security contractors will have their cases heard for the first time almost six years after the hijacked plane attacks on the United States, a federal judge has ruled.
U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein, who has presided over all the lawsuits filed in Manhattan federal court by relatives of the victims, ordered six of the remaining 41 cases that have not settled to begin Sept. 4.
But in an unusual move and a blow to some plaintiffs, the judge said the trial would only address damages and a second trial would have to be held to address liability. Some of the victim's relatives had hoped the issue of blame would not have to wait for a second trial.
Damages usually decide a monetary amount to compensate for injuries or loss, while liability decides who is responsible.
The judge said while he recognized "some families wish to honor important values through the trial process," he hoped the damages trials would encourage resolutions in all the cases.
He said the damages trials would "hasten the resolution of these and many other cases and thus be a significant step in mending the wounds left open by the terrorist-related aircraft crashes of September 11, 2001."
Of the 41 cases left, claims were filed on behalf of victims of American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 that crashed into the World Trade Center in New York, as well as United Airlines Flight 93 that crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
The judge noted that many of the cases were destined to spend much longer in the courts.
"Grieving widows and friends waiting for these proceedings to bring them closure may wait too long," he said, in deciding to push ahead with the damages trials. Continued...
WTC,9/11,Logan ICTS Says 'So Sorry',Barney Frank,Ted Kennedy,John Kerry Face Psych Crisis
Cowardice,Corruption,Complicity or all 3 ?
Below are 2 historic documents of interest to 9/11 and its Logan Airport,Boston,Massachusetts connections.
One is a press release from the Israeli run U.S. penny stock 'security' company named ICTS International that 'guarded' or 'protected' both Logan and Newark, New Jersey airports on 9/11/01.ICTS International perhaps had duties in Dulles Airport as well as the Marvin Bush-Al-Sabah Securacom.So in both cases we have non-American 'security' although the Al-Sabah and Bush connection to both Dulles and the WTC security should have been scrutinized much more than W Bush allowed,including his father and ex-president George Herbert Walker Bush's role in bringing Kuwaitis to be in charge of guarding strategic U.S. airports and real estate in the first place !
For Immediate Release
INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT SECURITY FIRM EXPRESSES
CONCERN OVER TRAGEDY, RESOLVES TO PARTICIPATE
IN STRENGTHENING PROCEDURES IN UNITED STATES
Amstelveen, The Netherlands, Sept. 17, 2001 - "The recent terrorist attacks on the United States have horrified and saddened us all," said Mr. Lior Zouker, President and Chief Executive Officer of ICTS International N.V., one of the world's leading airport security firms. "We share the sorrow of all the victims' families and with people everywhere."
ICTS is a pioneer and provider of anti-terrorist security at many of the world's major airports. Founded in 1986 by highly qualified international airport security experts to advise airlines on anti-terrorist measures,ICTS has developed and implemented many advanced systems in European airports to identify and prevent terrorist threats. ICTS presently employs about 10,000 employees, in Europe and the United States. ICTS operates at 40 European airports and at 48 U.S. airports through its Huntleigh USA Corporation subsidiary.
At Boston's Logan International Airport, Huntleigh operated a checkpoint from which one of the two aircraft commandeered by terrorists departed. "All the resources and experience of our company are available to the transportation industry and to the authorities as they seek to strengthen airport security in the United States," Mr. Zouker continued. "We wish to
participate in any way we can that will move the process forward. We have dedicated our professional lives to prevent these terrible acts and look forward to participating in the solution that increases the safety and security for travelers. Our professional departments (Product Control and Training) and our personnel versed in the use of technology are ready to help take U.S. security measures to a higher level."
The financial effects on the Company of the new FAA security directives and the overall effect of the recent events on the aviation industry are uncertain........ An increased demand for security services had been experienced by ICTS in previous cases of international crisis, such as the Lockerbie event and the Gulf War.
The Company remains in close contact with the FAA and has offered the expertise and full resources of ICTS to assist in initiating and
maintaining systems to address the challenges facing the transportation industry.
ICTS International N.V. is a leading provider of advanced aviation services. It operates primarily in Europe and the United States.....
At least ICTS International issued a press release acknowledging their involvement with 9/11 security.Marvin Bush and the Kuwaiti Al Sabahs don't think their role in 9/11 any of our business.:
Bush-Linked Company Handled Security for the WTC, Dulles and United
by Margie Burns
George W. Bush's brother was on the board of directors of a company providing electronic security for the World Trade Center, Dulles International Airport and United Airlines, according to public records. The company was backed by an investment firm, the Kuwait-American Corp., also linked for years to the Bush family.
The security company, formerly named Securacom and now named Stratesec, is in Sterling, Va.. Its CEO, Barry McDaniel, said the company had a ``completion contract" to handle some of the security at the World Trade Center ``up to the day the buildings fell down."
Alito helped Stratesec
by margieburns on Sun 26 Feb 2006
An emailer reminds me that Judge Alito has already done a judicial favor for the Bush family:
Back in the day, there was an extremely ill-managed security company, now defunct, named Stratesec. As some readers may recall, the company boasted in its SEC filings of fulfilling every big security need from fences to guards to armored vehicles to electronic badging and access control. The company succeeded in attracting a string of investors and backers, and from 1993 to 2000, its board of directors included Marvin P. Bush, youngest brother of George W. Bush.
The company touted longstanding relationships to a few major security clients, and listed several of the biggest, some of whom paid millions for security services, on its public filings. The list of big names for several years, prominently displayed with illustrations on the IPO brochure, included the World Trade Center, Dulles and Reagan National Airports, and United Airlines.
Stratesec started out as a company called Securacom. The original company was the well-regarded engineering firm Burns & Roe Securacom* which did some of the security detailing for the World Trade Center. However, in 1992 – soon after the first Gulf War -- Burns & Roe became Securacom: its management changed hands accompanying an infusion of capital from the ruling family of Kuwait, the Al Sabahs, two of whom joined its board. At this time Marvin Bush also joined the board, clearly connecting family and Al Sabah interests and presumably part of a bigger package of Bush family rewards after the U.S. kicked Iraq out of Kuwait........
All three companies were headquartered at the Watergate, in office space leased by the Saudi and Kuwaiti governments.
Stratesec is bankrupt and no longer exists; Commander Aircraft later became Aviation General, also bankrupt; and the Watergate has been sold to new owners. The Watergate building also housed one of the numerous branches of Riggs Bank, which has been effectively dismantled by SEC action. The head of the SEC during this operation was longtime Bush supporter William O. Donaldson, a classmate of Jonathan Bush, uncle to George W. and a Riggs executive.
Well-connected Riggs was widely considered to be an Agency bank (CIA) and was the bank used by about 95% of foreign embassies in Washington. Saudi accounts at Riggs were linked by investigators to some of the 9/11 hijackers.
Mishal al Sabah, a younger member of the ruling al Sabah family, was a son of one Emir and son-in-law (then ex-son-in-law) of the Emir who recently died. Mishal al Sabah served as officer and director in all three of Wirt Walker’s companies off and on for years and even lived with Walker when he first came to the U.S. He is now abroad and unlikely to return to the U.S., according to private sources, since he faces arrest on contempt charges stemming from a federal civil lawsuit in which he and Walker are defendants.
The second document is an official letter sent by Massachusetts Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy as well as Representative Barney Frank,et.al.,shortly after 9/11/01 relating to the need for money for psychological counseling for their Massachusetts constituents immediately following the disaster.

Congress of the United States
Washington, DC, 20515
October 16, 2001
The Honorable John Ashcroft
Attorney General of the United States
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.
Washington, DC 20530-0001
Dear Attorney General Ashcroft:
We are writing to draw your attention to unmet crime victim service needs of family members, friends, and colleagues of Massachusetts victims of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
Over 70 residents of Massachusetts were aboard the two flights that crashed into the WTC. Massachusetts, through its proximity to New York City, is home to many family members of victims who worked in the WTC. In addition, several of the companies that had office space in the WTC were Boston-based companies. As a result, Massachusetts organizations and agencies that provide service to victims of crime are providing needed assistance to hundreds of family members, friends, and colleagues of victims of the September 11 attacks.
As you know, the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) was established by the 1984 Victims of Crime Act and provides substantial funding to state victim assistance and compensation programs. We urge you to consider allocating some funds from the $40 billion emergency supplemental bill that Congress passed to respond to the terrorist attacks to OVC to support critical victim services. OVC funds two major formula grant programs -- Victim Compensation and Victim Assistance. Through these initiatives, it directs funding to victim services programs on the front lines that provide specialized homicide bereavement, crisis response, and hate crime victim services to the many families across the country who need and will be needing services as a result of the attacks on September 11.
In Massachusetts, victim services programs were already stretched beyond their capacity with the general crime victim population before September 11, but the demands being made on these organizations since then are enormous. Without the assurance of additional federal or state funding, Massachusetts crime victim service agencies have stepped up to meet the needs of the families of the over 70 victims from our state on the two doomed flights that originated from Boston's Logan Airport and the Massachusetts residents and companies in the WTC. Counselors have logged tremendous hours of overtime working directly with families of victims; one agency has established a Terrorist Attack Support Group; another has dispatched bilingual counselors to schools to calm the special fears of immigrant children.
To meet the overwhelming and continuing demand for victim services in the wake of the terrorist acts, agencies in Massachusetts and nationwide are in need of emergency funding. It is our sincere hope that additional funding will be allocated to OVC for these purposes. We appreciate your attention to this matter.

Subject : barney frank defends jonathon pollard,not 911 victims
So where is Barney Frank(and Ted Kennedy and John Kerry and Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani)while families of 9/11 victims have gone begging for disclosure ?
AND WHY DID THEY NOT PROTEST THE MANIPULATION AND INTIMIDATION OF 9/11 FAMILIES OF VICTIMS BY BUSH APPOINTED SETTLEMENT ATTORNEYS ?
The Bush regime and the attorneys on their payroll with connections to AIG CEO Greenberg represent the biggest beneficiaries of the 9/11 disaster,(pre-9/11 lease holders of the WTC that include Greenberg associates Silverstein and Israeli-Australian billionaire Frank Lowy as well as long time W Bush associate Steve Schwarzman of Blackstone 'hedge fund'),and the Israeli and Kuwaiti Al Sabahs and the Bushes who were actually part of 911 'security' !
Is China's investment in Blackstone a Bush payback to Schwarzman?
by Peter Cohan
This Blackstone investment -- for a non-controlling stake -- is clearly a bargaining chip in the economically tense relationship between China and the U.S. We need China, since it's financing a big chunk of the $8.8 trillion U.S. federal debt -- it owns $350 billion worth of U.S. Treasury securities.
But China also accounts for a share of the politically sensitive U.S. trade deficit. And due to what Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson considers China's artificially low currency, this trade deficit is not going away. Somehow China, which is coming to the U.S. for trade talks,thinks that having its State Investment Company buy $3 billion worth of Blackstone Group at 95.5% of the IPO price will mollify its critics.
One thing for sure -- China's stake will help Blackstone avoid the problems that Carlyle Group encountered in its efforts to buy companies in China. I guess China would be better off if Blackstone owned the U.S. government. Then again, given that Steve Schwarzman raised $1.2 million last month for Republicans during a New York fund-raiser at his 34 room apartment featuring his Yale dorm mate -- George W. Bush -- maybe China's investment in Blackstone is Bush's payback for Schwarzman's fund-raising.
And doesn't Barney Frank realise that his Florida Democratic colleague Tim Mahoney(who replaced Mark Foley over his male intern hustling scandal) and his VFIN or vFinance has been involved with the very dirty 'pump and dump' and money laundering with offshore accounts and Dubai and Kuala Lumpur connections that fraudulent penny stocks such as Securacom and ICTS International represent ? Then
maybe Barney really didn't know his gay friend ran a male brothel from Frank's residence.......
I really don't know,I just thought maybe,instead of writing letters in defense of Israel's American spy, Pollard,maybe Frank should go march in Israel's gay parade or defend Washington and the Beltway's prositution industry and their affluent heterosexual or whatever clientele and politicos.Barney Frank, I'm afraid,has more in common with Jeff Gannon or James Dale Guckert,(the right wing 'gay' fascist who posed as a White House reporter and had more access to the W Bush White House than Monica Lewinski ever did at the Clinton White House),than he does with American victims of 9/11 or U.S. penny stock fraud that ICTS and Securacom also represent !
Barney Frank sits quietly as family members of 9/11 victims are harrassed by the court and attorneys with close ties to 9/11 economic beneficiaries who are paid by the U.S. government to aid in cover up and John Kerry who voted for the war until he voted against it and Ted Kennedy are culpable I'm sorry to say as are Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani !
It would appear a cover up of the 9/11,WTC, Pentagon, Dulles,Logan,Newark airports'etc. tragedy of 9/11/01 has continued to this day.
And U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein's court and proceedings have aided the W Bush and 9/11 Commission's agenda of sweeping the airlines and their 'security',(that includes Marvin Bush and Al Sabah of Kuwait links through Securacom and Israeli links through ICTS International),under the rug.
Perhaps the judges or his wife's emotional ties to Israel and the far right Israelis of ICTS International with their political and economic and high level security ties to Israel is a conflict of interest as both Jerry Mazza, Christopher Bollyn and others have argued......
Menachem Atzmon of ICTS International has had direct familiar and business and legal and political ties with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert ! Ehud Olmert has close business and probable economic connections to Frank Lowy an Israeli-Australian billionaire who had WTC property along with Silverstein and his ties to Greenberg of AIG insurance giant and with ties to the government and Bush regime attorneys and law firm of (Traurig Greenberg ), who have worked side by side Judge Alvin Hellerstein's court to block discovery and thus disclosure and closure for family members of 9/11 victims at every step of the way !
9/11 and the Greenberg Familia
By Jerry Mazza
Online Journal Associate Editor:
Greenberg’s Law Firm Connections to Bush
According to http://www.sourcewatch.org, the Greenbergs were and are connected to the Bush Familia via their Miami-based law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, a 1,350-lawyer, full-service international firm. Here are a few connects . . .
1) G-T represented George W. Bush in the Bush-Gore 2000 Florida election vote recount.
2) They personally represent Florida Governor Jeb Bush.......
5) The firm has prominent administrative positions in Massachusetts 9/11 Fund, which also involves Bush family banking house Brown Brothers Harriman (the same BBH involved with Prescott Bush’s bankrolling the Nazis in World War II).
6) Traurig Greenberg works with 9-11 victims on planning their US government “hushmail/bribery estates.” That is, to receive the money, the victim’s family must sign an agreement never to sue the government for any reason. Victim-wife Ellen Mariani is currently being legally harassed for not signing and for holding the Bush government’s feet to the fire.
7) Bush still owes the Greenberg Traurig firm nearly $1 million for work done by dozens of lawyers and paralegals, leaving questions why a Republican candidate would hire a Democratic lawyer from a Democratic firm. See Greenberg Traurig link above for more scandals.
Greenberg’s Relationship to Larry Silverstein
On July 24, 2001, six weeks before 9/11, Larry Silverstein took control of the lease of all the WTC buildings. This followed the Port Authority decision on April 26.
According to democraticunderground.com, the three companies who originally insured the WTC were AIG, Marsh and ACE, all run as mentioned by the Greenbergs at the time. They then sold stakes of the original contract to their competition, a technique called reinsuring.
Once the Towers came down, the reinsurers got caught holding the bag. This would inextricably tie the Greenbergs to Silverstein and the larger conspiracy of 9/11. If they had no foreknowledge of events to occur, why would the Greenbergs have unloaded so many stakes in their contract?
According to Michel Chossudovsky in Financial Bonanza behind the 9/11 Tragedy, “On October 17, 2000, eleven months before 9/11, Blackstone Real Estate Advisors, of The Blackstone Group, L.P, purchased, from Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, the participating mortgage secured by World Trade Center, Building 7.1.” [Blackstone in 2000 also purchased a 50 percent stake in Universal Studios, producers of the myth-perpetuating Flight 93.]
“April 26, 2001 the Port Authority leased the WTC for 99 years to Silverstein Properties and Westfield America Inc.
“The transaction was authorised by Port Authority Chairman Lewis M. Eisenberg. This transfer from the New York and New Jersey Port Authority was tantamount to the privatisation of the WTC Complex. The official press release described it as ‘the richest real estate prize in New York City history.’ The retail space underneath the complex was leased to Westfield America Inc.
“On 24 July 2001, 6 weeks prior to 9/11 Silverstein took control of the lease of the WTC following the Port Authority decision on April 26.
“Silverstein and Frank Lowy, CEO of Westefield Inc. took control of the 10.6 million-square-foot WTC complex.
"Lowy leased the shopping concourse called the Mall at the WTC, which comprised about 427,000 square feet of retail space.”
“Explicitly included in the agreement was that Silverstein and Westfield ‘were given the right to rebuild the structures if they were destroyed.'’
ICTS International N.V. - Investigation
By of Possible Tax Violations.... on 6/30/2007 5:37:31 PM
E-mail: endoscam (at) lycos.com
I found this from last year re ' ICTS International N.V. - Investigation of Possible Tax Violations by a Subsidiary'.
It appears the U.S. government has been very 'liberal' about Mr.Atzmon and various shady Israeli and Middle East characters using U.S. penny stocks for years for fraud or money laundering and it all came home to roost when these jerks were allowed to guard Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank's chicken coop,I mean Logan Airport,on 9/11.Mr.Barney Frank may now be the gambling industry's best friend but so far he has been U.S. penny stock fraud's best friend and he has so far aided the W Bush administration's efforts to cover up for the Securacom penny stock scam of Marvin Bush and the Al Sabah royalty of Kuwait who 'guarded' Dulles and the WTC as well as Menachem Atzmon et.al.'s possibly Mossad connected ICTS that 'protected' Newark and Logan Airports.He has also played like he doesn't know Florida Congressman Tim Mahoney bought his seat with monies made in the same dirty criminal business.
Was 911 paid for with U.S. penny stock fraud ? Why did the NASDAQ decide to delist ICTS International on June 5 of this year when they announced they were going to do so last year ? Was it because of ICTS's appeal of the decision ? Both the U.S. SEC of now Chairman Christopher Cox(who lied about 'WMDS' in Iraq and 'naked short selling' of U.S. penny stocks)as well as NASDAQ have been negligent to a point of treason or criminal negligence in my opinion in allowing these worthless criminal penny stocks to continue and defraud investors as a reward for their incompetence,(at best),on 911.
ICTS International N.V. - Investigation of Possible Tax Violations by a Subsidiary
BusinessWire News ReleasesPublished: 08/18/06 12:00 PM EDTRating:
ICTS International N.V. (ICTS), today reported that the principal reason the Company is delayed in the filing of its annual report on Form 20-F is as follows. Last year the Company's subsidiary ICTS USA, Inc. filed a refund claim with the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") in an amount in excess of $2 million which was to be reflected on the December 31, 2005 year end financial statements as a receivable. The refund was not received and the Company made a demand to the IRS for the refund. Thereafter, by letter dated August 15, 2006, the Company was advised that a criminal investigation by the United States Department of Justice, Tax Division is ongoing by a grand jury regarding possible criminal tax violations by the subsidiary for the tax years 2002 and 2003 regarding certain royalty payment made to the Company. As a result of the investigation the Company believes that the refund had been put on hold.
Mr. Menachem Atzmon, the Chairman of the Company's Supervisory Board stated that, "The Company is unaware of any wrong doing by its subsidiary. The subject matter of the investigation, the royalties, was dealt with great care, and was subject to a study prepared by the Company's auditors, being one of the big five. The Company adopted the auditors recommendation and recorded the royalties accordingly. The process was fully transparent and was reviewed by the government agencies for which it was providing services. The Company has filed its tax returns in full compliance with law, under the guidance of its auditors. The Company will take all the necessary steps to collect the sums due under the terms of the law. I wonder if there is any connection between these events and the Company's claims against the government, which are due to be heard in November?"
ICTS Directors under Investigation by Israeli Securities Authority
Israel 2003:Ezra Harel,Menachem Atzmon detained on 7/6/2007 8:59:48 PM
E-mail: endoscam (at) lycos.com
So the Israelis who guarded Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank's and Senators John Kerry's and Edward Kennedy's Logan Airport near Boston on 911 and who claimed to be going into railroad security(gawd help us)as recently as 2005 were 'detained' by Israeli authorities on suspicion of 'securities fraud in 2003 ! And this is the scum who NASDAQ and the SEC allowed to defraud investors and Americans and to brazenly apply to the IRS for a $2 million tax refund for their efforts !
Does anyone know if these three stooges who pretend to watch out for the interests of Massachusetts citizens(and investors interests in the case of Congressman Barney Frank)have been tested for brain activity in the last few years ? Can either of the three put ICTS International and Logan Airport and 911 and U.S. securities fraud into one coherent sentence !?
Having grown up American and to have had such respect for the Kennedys and remembering some of Kerry's eloquent statements during the time of San Antonio,Texas Democratic Congressman Henry Gonzalez's IraqGate investigations,I am more than a little disillusioned.
Oh.ICTS International also appears to be the 'security' corp that also allowed 'shoe bomber' Richard Reid to travel safely from the Netherlands(where ICTS is officially headquartered) to Israel and then supposedly to meet with Palestinian Moslems
then return safely to Tel Aviv Airport and safely back to Europe before being taken into custody - NOT BY ICTS OF COURSE - by airline passengers !
Anyone wish to 'invest' in the 'security' company that sent thousands to their deaths while running a stock fraud upon Americans and insisting the IRS owes them money when in fact they owe victims of 911 as well as their stock scam money in my opinion but W Bush has given them immunity in and through the 'Patriot Act' ! :
ICTS International N.V.; Certain ICTS Directors under Investigation by Israeli Securities Authority with Respect to an Unrelated Company
Business Wire, May 30, 2003
AMSTELVEEN, Netherlands--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 30, 2003
ICTS International N. V. (NASDAQ: ICTS), a leading provider of advanced aviation services, today reported that on Sunday, May 25, 2003, Mr. Ezra Harel, the Chairman of ICTS International N.V. was detained and subsequently released on bail in Israel by the investigative authorities of the Israeli Securities Authority in connection with a criminal investigation under Israeli law involving an unrelated company in which Mr. Harel was a former director and controlling shareholder.
Mr. Menachem Atzmon, a director of ICTS International N.V. was also detained and subsequently released on bail in the same matter. Mr. Atzmon may be deemed a former controlling shareholder of the unrelated company. The substance of the Israeli Securities Authority's questioning of Mr. Harel and Mr. Atzmon is not known, since a gag order is in effect in connection with the investigation.
Mr. Lior Zouker, the President of ICTS stated that "ICTS has no indication that the investigation involves ICTS."
If a poll were taken of Americans' opinion of allowing Kuwaiti and Israeli owned companies,(incorporated in the U.S. to take advantage of the corrupt U.S. penny stock market and worthless shares they can sell or dump on defrauded investors they can lure into their scam),to guard some of America's most important airports and real estate - their reaction based upon the POLLS TAKEN DURING Dubai Ports scandal -would be a resounding NO !
And yet that is exactly what ex U.S. president George Herbert Walker Bush arranged with the apparent complicity of Bill Clinton administration immediately after the first WTC bombing in 1993 ! The Bush family and members of the Kuwaiti Al Sabah royal family were quick to buy the security for the WTC and to get the contract for both Dulles and the U.S. Los Alamos nuclear RESEARCH CENTER IN NEW MEXICO AS WELL !
And it should be added that the mad blind moslem sheik who helped orchestrate or cheerled the 1993 WTC bombing had ties to George Herbert Walker Bush and his CIA'S WAR AGAINST THE GODLESS RUSSIAN COMMIES IN AFGHANISTAN OF THE 1980'S.He received a visa to enter the U.S. while George Herbert Walker Bush was president from the U.S. Embassy in Sudan even though he was involved in the assasination of Sadat in Egypt !
It appears neither the Bushes nor the Clinton's have really wished us Americans well - or they certainly have a funny way of expressing it.
Senator John Kerry assured ..............
What happened on 9/11/01 at Logan,Dulles and Newark airports is surely as important as Washington crossing the Delaware or incidents of our self destructive civil war or Pearl Harbor for that matter.
It does us all injustice to protect ICTS International,an Israeli penny stock incorporated in thee U.S. and STILL LISTED ON THE PINK SHEETS although they were delisted from NASDAQ only on June 5,2007 ! It does us all injustice that Menachem Atzmon friend of Israeli Prime Minister and other powerful Israelis who form ICTS's executives have supposedly been given immunity from all culpability for 9/11 by the Patriot Act and that Massachusetts and New York politicians have aided in the cover up !
ICTS International at the very least has defrauded Americans and possibly others who bought their worthless shares on NASDAQ or its OTCBB penny market or now the scammy pink sheets where they don't have to report their financial activities ! It appears they also filed a false claim with the U.S. IRS for $2 million as well !
As if the U.S. government owes them something for their outrageous 'security' services provided on 9/11/01 ! In many ways 9/11 was funded by U.S. penny stocks at least as much as by Saudi royal money given to some 9/11 perpetrators as well as the $70,000 senr from Dubai and cashed by Lebanese-American Titan Corp 'contractor' Makram Chams at his convenient Kwik Check business in Venice,Florida !
And since 9/11 and the immunity from prosecution given to them post 9/1,Menachem Atzmon and his Israeli 'business partners' have continued to act as a multi-national 'security' company and to contract out to European and British airports and rail security service needs including the London 'tube' that was bombed on 7/07/05 ! Now it appears they are also involved with Fortress GB that provides 'security' to the Glasgow Airport as well !
They also allowed 'shoe bomber' Richard Reid to travel to Israel some months before he showed up at the Charles De Gaule Airport of Paris,France to board an American Airlines flight to the U.S. with his 'shoe bomb' ! Not very responsible on the part of American Airlines either who continued to employ ICTS both in the U.S. and internsationally in Europe long after the role they played in the 9/11 disaster itself !
So ICTS besides having contributed substantially to the 9/11 disaster is a U.S. penny stock that bought Huntleigh rent-a-cops with money at least in part from defrauded investors ! This,Barney Frank,is even more rigged than the internet gambling you wish to 'regulate'.This penny stock fraud with worthless shares issued in the U.S. aids international money laundering as much as internet and other gambling operations - and you have never done a thing to regulate U.S. penny stocks ! Why !?
Choosing 9/11 victim lawsuits for trial?
By Jerry Mazza
Online Journal Associate Editor
Jun 29, 2007, 01:05
That headline,that question is why we're here in Judge Hellerstein's courtroom... Of course, the usual suspects have been rounded up, lawyers for the airlines, the plaintiffs,a US attorney, fewer citizen onlookers, including myself, notebook open. Yet what I will hear will leave me as chagrined as June 14's double-sized gathering reported in The 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund: cui bono?
This time, Judge Hellerstein is to announce a number of remaining victims cases to be tried for victims families that have not accepted fund money, but wish to take their loved one's case to court for further inquiry, perhaps even for justice.....
Somehow, it seems that the money won't help those folks, those holdouts, get through the day and over the loss. Yet despite that fact, the good judge tells us, admitting it will probably come back to haunt him,that 'money is the universal lubricant'....
That reminder leads the judge to a somber lecture that life is short. And out of the mundane you can fashion something different, a memory for a different degree of pain for each person......
Then, rather than announce the cases chosen, the good judge asks both teams of lawyers what is the quickest, most efficient way to have some cases heard and -- subtext -- the whole bunch over with,'a wrap' as they say in the film business.......
In fact, whose case, whose justice is worth more or less, the firefighter rushing to apocalypse or the flight attendant in it; the husband/father or mother/wife or single individual sitting at his/her desk in the Twin Towers or the Pentagon or in a lost airliner over a field, or worse, flown to some dark nowhere?...........
And, yet, when one of the lawyers stands and insists his client's wish for trial is based on principle, not on money, the judge recites an anecdote. He remembers that when he was a lawyer and clients came to him, saying it was not the money, it was the principle for which they were bringing suit, that when his first bill came, it was a matter of money, how much would it cost, and soon the principle went out the window....
Yet,when another lawyer reminds the judge, who has actually thrown out a name himself, Mariani, that is Mrs. Ellen Mariani,by the way the first litigant ever in the fund's history. And then the lawyer suggests that Miss Mariani is not willing to appear in court. But that is Miss Mariani he is speaking of, the step-daughter of Mrs. Mariani, the original litigant, whose name was taken off her own case, and replaced by her step-daughter?s, Miss Mariani or Loren Peters. Is a lawyer of his accomplishment not aware of who is who?
In fact, when this hour and a half of kangaroo is over, I go over to him and ask him. As some of his distinguished colleagues look on, I ask if he has willfully mistaken Miss Mariani, who was party to having Mrs. Mariani?s name removed from her own two suits, one against the government, one against United Airlines, and replaced with her own, Loren Peters? Has he found a convenient obfuscation to silence the one voice that has cried the longest and the loudest for a trial in a court of law to find out what went wrong on that day to take her husband?s life? Yes, that voice is, was, and will be, Mrs. Mariani.
This in spite of the back-room dealings aided and abetted by Greenberg-Traurig lawyers, and various famous and infamous legal beagles to bring Miss Mariani into the case, and have Mrs. Mariani vanish in obscurity. But here is one person who remembers, who respectfully reminds, who respectfully stands perhaps for thousands, perhaps millions who remember who said what first, and what will not be surgically removed with a slip of the tongue, if that is all it was, though I doubt it. The history is long and complex as Tom Flocco will tell you in NH widow fights 9/11 estate challenge linked to President Bush.
For instance . . .
Mariani knows a witness to the encounter who personally met and conversed with Lauren Peters since she was also in Boston's Greenberg Traurig office with Mariani's step-daughter on the same day and recognized Peters.
The woman is also a 9-11 widow and has told several others about the incident in Greenberg's Boston office, after introducing herself to Peters since she recognized a photo of Neil Mariani on a pin Peters was wearing when they met outside Bakinowski?s office.
During a recent deposition under oath, Peters denied knowing Bakinowski but said she may have met someone named Greenberg in Boston but couldn't recall the meeting, according to Mariani, speaking exclusively to TomFlocco.com.
Mariani told us that Greenberg-Traurig attorney Daniel Bakinowski met with her late husband's daughter Lauren Peters in February 2003. However, before that time, Ms. Peters supported Mariani's suit against United Airlines (by law Peters participates in any settlement or judgment).
Since the meeting with Bakinowski, Peters has continued to press for administrative and financial control of Neil Mariani's estate, accusing the New Hampshire widow of incompetence in her capacity as estate administratix because Mariani refused to accept a financial settlement from the 9-11 Victim Compensation fund.? And so on. Read it all, right through the abundant Bush-Greenberg-Traurig relationships, which are notoriously abundant.
For instance . . .
a) Greenberg Traurig lawyer Barry S. Richard represented George W. Bush as his lead Florida attorney in the Bush-Gore 2000 election recount in the Sunshine State. And well into his presidency, Bush still owed the Greenberg firm nearly one million dollars for work done by dozens of lawyers and paralegals -- leaving some to question why a Republican candidate would hire a Democratic lawyer from a Democratic firm when the presidency hung in the balance. Greenberg's Richard also represented Bush's brother, Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
b) On Election Day, November 7, 2000, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's son John Scalia accepted a position with Greenberg-Traurig; and on November 8 -- the day after the election, Greenberg Traurig partner Barry Richard said he was called about representing George W. Bush in the Florida presidential recount which ultimately led to the 5-4 Supreme Court vote placing Bush in the presidency. The timing of these actions raises significant questions about inner machinations between Bush-Cheney 2000 and Greenberg Traurig -- if not the Supreme Court itself.
c) Greenberg-Traurig attorney Eric MacLeish chairs the board of the Massachusetts 9/11 Fund to benefit 170+ families in the state who lost loved ones in the attacks.......
d) Three months before the September 11 attacks, Alberto Jose Mora -- counsel to the Washington, DC office of Greenberg Traurig -- was appointed by President Bush to be the General Counsel of the Department of the Navy. The position also places Mora with the responsibility of legal oversight for the elite Office of Naval Intelligence which assumed a joint intelligence role with the CIA and FBI prior to the September 11 attacks.
e) Raquel A. Rodriguez, another Greenberg Traurig attorney, represents Florida Governor Jeb Bush as his personal general counsel.
f) Jack Abramoff, Washington lobbyist for the Greenberg Traurig firm, raised $100,000 in bundled $2,000 dollar individual contributions for this year?s Bush-Cheney 2004 election campaign, raising him to the elite status of Bush "Pioneer" fundraiser.
g) Greenberg Traurig partially financed a congressional-defense contractor delegation trip to Israel......
And so as I look the lawyer in the face . . .
He tells me he can't talk about Miss Mariani's case or her condition, which has in fact lasted over a long period of time, pre-dating the awful events of 9/11 and precludes her from appearing. And who am I, he asks, asking these questions? And I offer my hand, my name, my ethnicity (the same as his), my country (the same as his), my profession (writer), and that I am a friend of Mrs. Mariani, and share a mutual desire to see justice served......
For justice as truth, both begin in the heart, with compassion and an honest desire for equality. Justice and truth do not begin or end in the grease pit, among the lubricators, the fabricators. Justice, as portrayed in its mighty statue, must be blind to rich and poor, to the powerful and the powerless. For justice as truth holds the scales of our lives and their quality. Justice must hold that scale high as the nearby Brooklyn Bridge, as high as the fallen towers once were or those liners that did not down them, as high as the sky grayed with gases and that awful cloud.

Shoe bomber's terror connections
Richard Reid got big welcome from Hamas in Gaza

FROM DEBKA INTELLIGENCE FILES
The shoe bomb case has also sent ripples through U.S.-Israeli relations. Sources report the angry tone taken by U.S. officials with Israeli security officers and Ariel Sharon himself over the Reid affair. They believe Israeli intelligence services knew six months ago about Reid's suspected involvement in terrorist activities as well as the real purpose of his Gaza visit – but said nothing. Had Israel spoken up, or at least dropped some hint about Reid, he never would have been allowed to board the American Airlines plane. Washington would have tipped off French authorities, which would have picked Reid up immediately on his arrival in Paris.
To make the situation worse, a private security company called ICTS, owned by an Israeli, Ezra Harel, and registered in the Netherlands, was employed at Charles de Gaulle airport to screen passengers boarding U.S. planes. Most of its personnel are ex-Shin Bet officers. The company covers security at Boston's Logan airport, where the American Airlines plane landed after flight attendants and passengers overpowered Reid. The Americans believe someone at ICTS must have known that Reid planned to take that flight and passed it on to Israel, which withheld information that could have prevented a major air disaster.
The Israeli response to U.S. allegations is no less harsh. They admit letting Reid board an El Al flight from Amsterdam to Tel Aviv in July, although an armed sky marshal was ordered to sit next to him. This was a calculated risk to find out who Reid's contacts were in Israel and the Palestinian territories and the only way to cover his movements effectively.

Israeli Run Company at Glasgow Airport...
Filed under:Fake Terror London
July 3, 2007 - 10:59
Fortress GB is an Israeli-run company doing business in Great Britain. It is on the same floor, in the same building, as ICTS UK, which is another Israeli transportation security firm. ICTS UK Ltd.and Fortress GB Ltd. are both located on the 1st floor of Tavistock House South, which is exactly where the bus blew up on July 7. An Israeli man answered the phone at Fortress GB and was noticeably reluctant to answer any questions about who ran the company although he did admit that a lot of Israelis worked there. The secretary at ICTS UK Ltd., however, quickly told me that the companies are related.
These Israeli security firms need to be investigated in light of the London bombings, because they provide "security technology" for the tube lines that were bombed. They have perfected their "security" skills in Israel and Iraq and then apply them in Britain and the U.S.A. This is a pattern. The same thing happened at Heathrow when the PanAm flight went down, the same thing occurred at Boston and Newark airports on 9/11.
Isn't it time for nations to use their own brains and people to protect their citizens and stop outsourcing their most fundamental obligations to dodgy Israeli "security" firms?
Who guards the guards?
(Chris Bollyn is a writer/photographer for American Free Pres[http://www.americanfreepress.net] in Washington DC, and 'one of the most tenacious of false-flag terror researchers' (T.G.) - and was recently assaulted by the FBI.)
ICTS UK Ltd is another Israeli-run 'transportation security' company with offices in London. Although the company's registered address is listed as 8 Baker Street, they operate, however, from an office on the first Floor of T@vi st0ck House South. Curiously, this is the exact same location that Fortress GB operate from. More curious still, T@vi st0ck House is the exact location where the number 30 bus exploded on 7th July.
Given that both companies provide
'transportation security' services, operate from the same floor of the same office complex, and given that both are owned and run by Israelis, only a hardened 'coincidence theorist' would deny that there is evidence indicating tangible links between the two. Indeed, one could be forgiven for believing that the same people are behind Fortress GB Ltd and ICTS UK Ltd.
As Christopher Bollyn points out, these companies merit being investigated because "they provide 'security technology' for the tube lines that were bombed." Bollyn also points out that these Israeli companies perfect their 'security' skills in Israel and Iraq and then apply them in Britain and the USA.
ICTS International were the company who ran the security arrangements at ALL the airports from where the hijacked airliners departed from on the morning of September 11th, 2001.
'... Fortress GB, a smart card technology developer and integrator for ICTS Europe. ICTS Europe is an Israeli security company based in the Netherlands, a subsidiary of which is Huntleigh. Huntleigh was the security contractor at Logan Airport on 9/11 that failed to provide us with CCTV evidence of hijackers. The London Underground is one of Fortress GB's clients and according to their press release they provide smart card technology (personal details and biometric information) for contractors that operate in Tube stations.'
Fortress GB Ltd,
1st floor, South block D, Tavistock House, Tavistock Square, London WC1H9LG.
Concerning how quickly the search turned to Luton on July 7th:
'Luton is interesting because an office of ICTS (the Israeli security firm) is about a mile from a Thameslink station. ICTS is actually located in the Luton and Dunstable NHS Hospital. It seems a little odd that this firm that handles security for the Stansted airport would be located at the Hospital.
ICTS UK Ltd, Security control Room, Lewsey Road LU4 ODZ'
Confirmed. ICTS is in charge of security at Glasgow airport.
Quote:Re-opening of American Airline's seasonal stations
American Airline also reopened their daily seasonal flights from Glasgow and Rome. ICTS Europe is providing the security services at these locations.
Straight from the horse's mouth.

'Saudi Flights' on Mob, CIA-Linked Air Charters
July 12 2007
by Daniel Hopsicker
The owner of one of the air charter companies involved in the airlift of Saudi Royals and bin Laden family members out of the U.S. after the 9/11 attack has been identified in numerous published reports as a business partner and “close associate” of New England Mob Boss Raymond J. (Junior) Patriarca, the MadCowMorningNews has learned.

Sheiks on a Plane: FBI Docs Expose Anatomy of a Cover-Up
The MadCowMorningNews has obtained the first photo ever published (at right) of the never-before-seen Learjet that flew the so-called Saudi "phantom flight" from Tampa Florida... a flight FBI and Bush Administration officials for more than three years denied ever took place.
Last week’s newly-released FBI documents on flights out of the U.S. after the 9/11 attack by Saudi Princes and bin Laden family members generated headlines about the FBI's admission that Osama bin Laden may himself have chartered one of the planes.
But the documents contain an even-more startling revelation: the Bush Administration, the FBI, the FAA, and even defense contractor Raytheon knowingly lied in repeated denials of newspaper and magazine accounts of the "phantom flight."

FBI seizes records of students at flight schools
By BARRY KLEIN, WES ALLISON, KATHRYN WEXLER and JEFF TESTERMAN
© St. Petersburg Times,
published September 13, 2001
Federal agents worked furiously Wednesday to determine if the hijackers responsible for the worst attack in U.S. history learned how to fly in Florida.
At an aviation school in Venice, FBI agents seized files on two former students, one from Egypt and the other from the United Arab Emirates. The FBI says both men are suspects in the assault that leveled the World Trade Center and sent shock waves around the world.
Mohamed Atta, 33, may have guided American Airlines Flight 11 into the first of the two towers that later collapsed, killing what officials assume will be thousands of office workers and hundreds of their would-be rescuers, the Boston Globe reported. He has been linked to at least six other suspected hijackers who boarded the two doomed flights at Boston's Logan Airport..............
