On February 26, 1993 our country was attacked by Muslim radicals. The roots of the attack were in the aftermath of the Meir Kahane assassination attempt. Many of the key players in the WTC 93 blast were present at the trial of the killer of Kahane. Kahane was an unsympathetic victim and many were glad to be rid of him. Many Jews including myself viewed him as a nut. The notion of a Jewish authoritarian theocracy is not the desire of the vast majority of Orthodox Jews. However, the government never explored links to a wider plot.
Laurie Mylroie has an excellent book explaining the probable links of the WTC-93 crew to Saddam Hussein. The important part to know is that many of the key members of Al Queda are Baloch. The Baloch are yet another example of an indigenous minority
that is well off the beaten path of self absorbed Marxists who rail about contrived ones 24/7 365 days aa year. The key figure in the WTC-93 plot was none other than Ramzi Youseff. Youseff was caught in the Philipinnes where he was planning a massive attack with ten airliners called bochinka. Hussien had a history of lengthy ties in the Balloch community via his intelligence services.
By mere coincedence Ramzi Youseff's uncle happens to be none other than Al Queda number three man Khalid Sheik Mohammad. For those of you unfamiliar with that name he was the dishevled terrorist who was caught almost three years ago with a serious resemblence to a disgusting porn star Ron Jeremy. This resemblence was pariodied in local talk radio for weeks after the captire.
I was on hand and in the WTC on February 26, 1993. I was on my way to buy theatre tickeds at the discount booth at the WTC. Obviously, I wasn't able to purchase those tickets. However, the notion that the facility had been bombed never dawned on me. I had believed that an accident had happened in the Path Station or an underground power plant. I found out that the WTC had been bombed when coworkers told me. They greeted my arrival with astonishment as if they had seen a ghost. All the local radio was knocked out but via the radio I heard the news.
The only injury I suffered that day was to my pride. I called up my date who had zero sympathy as she was well aware that was where the discount tickets were. I was ordered to go to the box office and pay full price. The next day I went out on the date and the subject of the explosion was never mentioned, for my own safety.
In the comming days we were lulled to sleep with the laughable prospect of Keystone Jihadists. The main culprit was caught trying to get a 500 dollar deposit on a van he blew up. Of course the dimwit sang and a cast of charachters was brought before the media. Most notable is SheiK Omar Abdel Rahman the blind incoherent cleric who dresses like Santa Claus and has a good friend in Commie attorney Lynne Stewart who is more incoherent than Rahman. I have met Stewart in person and she is uglier in person than on TV and is quite creepy even amongst deranged Commie types i Union Square.
We were lulled into a laughable business as usual life goes on period. The bombing became part of local jokes. The media portrayed the attempt as futile and nothing short of an atomic blast would bring the buildings down. Bill Clinton never visited the site in 1993. The matter was handled as a criminal affair. Meanwhile our enemies regrouped and came up with a bigger and better plan to attack the same facilities.
Clinton's one attempt to do something about Bin Ladden came at the apex of the Lewinsky scandal. One can hear the confirmation of Mansour Ijaz's points about the Sudanese offering Bin Ladden to the USA in Clinton's own voice on the web. This is not to blame Clinton for 9-11 as nobody could have grasped this. However, the unhinged left likes to blame Bush who was President for months for a plan that took years to execute.
