I'll add more to this thread later this evening when I get a chance to sit down. Alot of this information has long since vanished from the internet, and sources from websites that are now long gone or literally had their site hacked or shut down like FTW and the Memory Hole so sourcing some of the articles and quotes is a pain in the neck, but any help with that would be greatly appreciated.

After we invaded Afghanistan, we installed a former consultant to UNOCAL as their new president. Check this Creep out...
Quote:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamid_Karzai
Hamid Karzai /ˈhæmɪd ˈkɑːrzaɪ/ (Pashto/Dari: حامد کرزی‎, born 24 December 1957) is an Afghan politician who was the leader of Afghanistan from 22 December 2001 to 29 September 2014, originally as an interim leader and then as President for almost ten years, from 7 December 2004 to 2014. He comes from a politically active family; Karzai's father, uncle and grandfather were all active in Afghan politics and government. Karzai and his father before him, Abdul Ahad Karzai, were each head of the Popalzai tribe of the Durrani tribal confederation.

In the 1980s Karzai was active as a fundraiser for the mujahideen who were fighting to expel Soviet Army troops during the Soviet–Afghan War (1979–1989). After the Soviet withdrawal, the Islamic State of Afghanistan was established and then it was replaced in 1996 when the Taliban came to power and established the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. In July 1999 Karzai's father was assassinated and Karzai succeeded him as head of the Popalzai tribe. In October 2001 the US invasion of Afghanistan began and Karzai became a dominant political figure after the removal of the Taliban regime in late 2001.[1] During the December 2001 International Conference on Afghanistan in Germany, Karzai was selected by prominent Afghan political figures to serve a six-month term as Chairman of the Interim Administration.[2]

He was then chosen for a two-year term as Interim President during the 2002 loya jirga (grand assembly) that was held in Kabul, Afghanistan. After the 2004 presidential election, Karzai was declared winner and became President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. He won a second five-year term in the 2009 presidential election; this term ended in September 2014.[3]

...Electoral fraud[edit]

Under Karzai's administration, electoral fraud was so apparent that Afghanistan's status as a democratic state came into question.[108][109] Furthermore, a special court set up personally by Karzai in defiance of constitutional norms sought to reinstate dozens of candidates who were removed for fraud in the 2010 parliamentary elections by the Independent Electoral Commission.[110]

Financial ties with CIA and the government of Iran[edit]

On 28 April 2013, The New York Times revealed that from December 2002 up to the publication date, Karzai's presidential office was funded with "tens of millions of dollars" of black cash from the CIA in order to buy influence within the Afghan government. The article stated that "the cash that does not appear to be subject to the oversight and restrictions." An unnamed American official was quoted by The New York Times as stating that "The biggest source of corruption in Afghanistan was the United States."[111]

On 17 June 2013, Senator Bob Corker put a hold on $75 million intended for electoral programs in Afghanistan after his inquiries of 2 May, 14 May and 13 June to the Obama Administration regarding the CIA "ghost money" remained unanswered.[112]

Karzai also admitted that his office received millions of dollars in cash from the Iranian government.[113] Karzai stated that the money was given as gifts and intended for renovating his Presidential Palace in Kabul."This is transparent. This is something that I've even discussed while I was at Camp David with President Bush."[114]

Corruption[edit]

Main article: Corruption in Afghanistan

According to The New York Times, many members of the Karzai family have mixed their personal interests with that of the state, and become hugely influential and wealthy by murky means.[115] In 2012 Afghanistan was tied with Somalia and North Korea at the bottom of Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index,[116] and it ranked 172/175 in 2014.[117]

Mahmoud Karzai, the brother of President Karzai, was implicated in the 2010 Kabul Bank crisis. Mahmud Karzai was the 3rd largest shareholder in the bank with a 7% stake. Kabul Bank incurred huge losses on its investments in villas in Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The real estate investments were registered in the name of Kabul Bank chairman, Sherkhan Farnood. Mahmud Karzai bought one such villa from Farnood for 7 million dirhams using money borrowed from Kabul Bank and in a matter of months sold it for 10.4 million dirhams.[118] Mahmud Karzai's purchase of the 7% stake in Kabul Bank was also financed entirely through money lent by Kabul Bank with the shares as collateral.[118]

Karzai has admitted that there is widespread corruption in Afghanistan, but has blamed the problem largely on the way contracts are awarded by the international community, and said that the "perception of corruption" is a deliberate attempt to weaken the Afghan government.[119][120]

Unocal connection[edit]

There has been much debate over Karzai's alleged consultant work with Unocal (Union Oil Company of California since acquired by Chevron in 2005). In 2002, when Karzai became the subject of heavy media coverage as one of the front runners to lead Afghanistan, it was reported that he was a former consultant for them.[121][122][123] Spokesmen for both Unocal and Karzai have denied any such relationship, although Unocal could not speak for all companies involved in the consortium.[124] The original claim that Karzai worked for Unocal originates from a 6 December 2001 issue of the French newspaper Le Monde,[124] Barry Lane UNOCAL's manager for public relations states in an interview on the website Emperor's Clothes that, "He was never a consultant, never an employee. We've exhaustively searched through all our records."[125][126] Lane however did say that Zalmay Khalilzad, the former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, was a Unocal consultant in the mid-1990s.[127]

Taliban connection[edit]

In October 2013, Karzai's administration and the Afghanistan Intelligence agency were found to be communicating with the Pakistani Taliban about the shifting of power that may occur when the U.S. Forces withdraw in 2014.[128] Karzai himself was in London at the time of the discovery, to participate in talks with Pakistan and the U.S. on the possible location of Taliban leader Mullah Baradar. At the time, it was unknown if Karzai was directly involved or even knew of such communications.

Cheney ordered United 93 to be shot down
Quote:www.usatoday.com
Vice President Cheney ordered United 93 to be shot down
Before the passengers forced the crash of United 93, then-vice president Dick Cheney gave the approval for the plane to be shot down before it could reach Washington, the 9/11 report said.

“The Vice President authorized fighter aircraft to engage the aircraft,” the report said.

However, the report added, the Air Force fighters that were airborne at the time probably would not have found and reached United 93 in time. Military “officials have maintained consistently that had the passengers not caused United 93 to crash, the military would have prevented it from reaching Washington, D.C.,” the 9/11 report said. “That conclusion is based on a version of events that we now know is incorrect.”

I will never forget, and America shouldn't either, when Rudolph Giuliani told us that they came into his Emergency Management HQ in WTC 7 and told them to evacuate because it was GOING to collapse. Throw in Silverstien's famous 'Decision was made to pull it.." quote and the footage of the emergency responders on the street telling people to stand back because the building was going to collapse, as well as the countdown heard on their radio transmissions, you can't get any more damning than that.
You can actually see the central support columns give way just before the near free-fall uniform collapse of the WTC 7 building...

WTC was likely the target for Flight 93, since it never made it to NYC, the building was 'pulled' anyway despite minimal damage...

Are you aware of the statements made by Paul Laffoley who said that during the construction of the WTC towers, workers for the Bin Laden Construction group were openly questioning the reasoning behind placing explosives in a building that had not been constructed yet? The nefarious elements didn't place explosives, they simply had to wire them up. The shelf life of the explosive Simtex for example, actually had to be chemically reduced to prevent stockpiling. The demolition charges were ALREADY in place, and the mysterious white vans that were arriving an leaving the WTC complex at the wee hours of the morning in the weeks prior to 9/11 were simply wiring them up. The weekend before 9/11, there was an unprecedented power down of the complex which shut down the various security systems and the Bomb Sniffing dogs were removed despite a heightened security level, this is likely when the actual initiators were placed.

There was supposedly an alternative ending to that episode, but I've only seen one of them so I don't know if that is valid or not. Did the episode you watched actually have an explosion at the end?
