One Down (Spitzer) - 100More 911 Kingpins To GoBy Douglas Herman3-13-8
Lots of crocodile tears shed for the former "fallen" governor, Eliot Spitzer. Lots of laughter too, thanks to the sexual jokes of late night talk show hosts and the millions of lewd and rude comments on Internet forums. Lots of hand wringing and head-shaking too, especially from the so-called progressive new sites, like the New York Times and the Huffington Post, bemoaning the fate of the so-called liberal reformer.
At Huffington Post, Alec Baldwin penned a lament called: Reflections On A Fallen Hero, while columnist Nora Ephron wailed, predictably: "So goodbye. I feel sad. I liked him. It's tragic."
Tragic? Certainly, but not in the way these highly paid pundits think.
Funny how so many of these otherwise intelligent people, many of them NEW YORKERS, hardly realize that their former attorney general, Eliot Spitzer, ignored and, indeed, possibly conspired in the 911 mass murder that took the lives of nearly 3,000 New Yorkers. Truly New Yorkers must either be some of the dumbest people in the world or those most in denial.
According to Jon Gold: "In November of 2004, an independent inquiry into the events of 9/11 entitled 'Citizens' Complaint & Petition' was submitted to Eliot Spitzer's office. This document contained great detail about the glaring questions still unanswered and listed damages suffered by so many people. There were 100 signatures from prominent Americans such as Howard Zinn, Daniel Ellsberg, Ralph Nader, John Gray, Ray McGovern, Medea Benjamin, and Ed Asner. The Complaint also had 48 victims' families as signatories. Spitzer's top prosecutor, William Casey, personally received the document. However, this has been met with a deafening silence. No action was ever taken."
What-or who-- was this so-called reformer trying so desperately to hide? Whose involvement in the crime and why?
According to journalist and publisher Sander Hicks, the former governor was no white knight, no reformer, no caped crusader, but rather a deep dark shadowy figure on a sinister steed. Exactly the sort of the duplicitous, cowardly, hypocritical poseur he eventually was revealed to be. If it took a hooker to take him down, so be it and thank God. One down, and another hundred shadowy characters to go.
Do a simple Google search of Who Did It?-- Conspirators and scroll down the list of benefactors, while asking yourself why didn't Spitzer do his damn job?
Hicks reported: "In 2004, Eliot Spitzer was asked to investigate 9/11 by 66% of New Yorkers. Those pleas were ignored."
Added Hicks, in an earlier feature for the New York-based Megaphone: "His own attorney general, Andrew Cuomo, (then) investigating the governor's office's misuse of state troopers to monitor political rival Joe Bruno. To minority leader James Tedisco, Spitzer recently snapped, 'I'm a fucking steamroller, and I'll roll over you.' "
Steamroller? Of course the current karmic steamrolling of Spitzer won't bring back a single dead New York firefighter or the fading health of a single first responder.
Added Hicks, of the shady deals behind the 911 tragedy: "Silverstein put up only $14 million of his own money, (to acquire the WTC complex) and his friends at the powerful investment bank Blackstone Group kicked in another $111 million. After 9/11, Silverstein demanded a whopping $7 billion insurance payout, in the form of two $3.5 billion payment. Spitzer got involved behind the scenes, filing a "friend of the court" brief on Silverstein's behalf. The court ended up agreeing with Spitzer and Silverstein, over-turning the decision of a lower court. Spitzer helped midwife a fat compromise and an eventual $4.5 billion payout for Silverstein."
Funny, in every major crime, EXCEPT 911, investigators are always instructed to follow the money and conclude just who exactly benefits.
World Trade Center Building 7, ostensibly a US government building, victim of several suspicious fires (Arson?) and soon evacuated on 911, collapsed at 5:20 PM without being hit by an airplane. According to Hicks, 37 eyewitnesses working on the ground as firefighters, first responders and reporters recalled being warned in advance that WTC-7 was coming down. The official story determined a fire ignited a fuel tank in the building, resulting in a sudden collapse at the free fall speed of gravity.
"WTC 7 was the NY headquarters of CIA and the SEC office investigating Enron," said Hicks.
So why didn't the New York state attorney general, Eliot Spitzer, demand a full investigation? Why, conversely, did Spitzer literally serve as a whore for private citizen Silverstein in secret, rather than serve his public duty as top cop? Petitioners demanded he do his sworn duty. Instead the so-called reformer looked the other way, retired to the Mayflower hotel to be serviced by a gilded hooker, and shafted American citizens.
In truth, Spitzer is only one of more than a hundred powerful and well-connected "persons of interest" involved in some way with the 911 crime and subsequent cover up. A person of interest is someone detectives interview to get the bigger picture and hopefully apprehend the true criminals. Not surprisingly, for lack of evidence, the FBI no longer considers Osama bin Laden the mastermind behind 911.
Spitzer, had he done his duty at any time in his career, might have helped solve a perplexing crime rather than muddy the waters, Some will claim that was Spitzer's sole purpose.
Many top New York officials, former and current, also share Spitzer's murky connection to the 911 crime and the aftermath. Wrote John Albenese: "Bernard Kerick was having affairs in a hotel room overlooking ground zero! How romantic! Where was his summer home, overlooking Auschwitz?"
Meanwhile millions of gossip-starved Americans hotly debate the predicament of Spitzer's former call girl, 'Kristen.' I'd predict a quarter million dollar spread in some men's magazine and a million dollar book deal. Crime does pay, extremely well, a lesson learned well on 911.
