The following is an excerpt from the new book “Official Stories” by Liam Scheff, from Chapter 4: “9/11 – A Perfect Tuesday Morning.”
By Way of Deception: 9/11 and the Mossad
The countdown of the top five hits of 9/11 brings us to number three on your hit parade: Mossad with “White Van!”
Mossad, the Israeli intelligence force, has an Old Testament motto that is described two ways. Politely as, “For by wise guidance you can wage your war.” Or, from a former agent critical of the agency, “By Way Of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War.”
I didn’t know a thing about Mossad until I had to research them for what comes next. Did you know that the Israeli military attacked a U.S. ship (the Liberty) off the coast of Egypt in 1967? Injured 171 Americans, killed 34 and said it was an accident? They said they mistook it for some other country’s large military vessel. But all U.S. soldiers who were interviewed said, “No freaking way. They saw us, they shot us and they killed a lot of us.”
But, for being mistaken, if they were, Israel paid the families of soldiers, as a group, over 3 million dollars. So, I guess somebody had to save face. (Good thing, because Congress decided not to investigate what happened.)
Did you know that when he heard about what happened on 9/11, former Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said, “It’s very good….Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.” But, sympathy for who? For Israel.
That’s a funny response. But it fits with the reaction of some men who were working at a moving company in New Jersey – and that brings us to our number.
