9/11 AND THE WHO
OF THE FIVE W’S

These letters flitted across my dream screen in October, 2001, a month after 9/11, while I was investigating and writing about oil at the heart of 9/11 and the U.S. attack on Afghanistan.

In POLITICAL DIARY, the digital publication I founded in the aftermath of the 2000 presidential elections to wake journalists, politicians, and citizens to the truth-telling power of dreams, I penned (PD #5 — The Complicity Connection/From the Editor) about the dream clue:

“I expected to write a story detailing the role the Central Intelligence Agency played in Afghanistan since 1979: how this shadow government operating at the behest of elected presidents {and their corporate masters} implemented U.S. geopolitical interests—training rebels, nurturing Islamic fundamentalists notably Osama bin Laden, and creating the Taliban to do the bidding for UNOCAL so the U.S. oil company could build a $2-billion dollar pipeline through Afghanistan to the huge markets of Asia.”

Discovering  a covert action arm of the CIA was eye-opening for this reporter, schooled in social welfare reporting. Discovering there was more to CIA operations than intelligence gathering and spying was a big step in my awakening to Deep Politics.

Still, after nearly a decade as a political reporter in Washington, D.C. followed by more than a dozen years calling on dream guidance in all phases of my life, I sidestepped the message of the three letter dream — a certain clue to the Who of the five W’s a journalist seeks to answer in any story.

Denial — or perhaps healthy caution — spread through mind and writing. In PD #5 Editor’s Letter, I made a U-turn, back to the secure, safe perch of a month earlier:

“We (a human rights activist and I) had met at a Media Alliance event about Afghanistan a week after 9/11 and I decided to investigate. However, I admit I thought it preposterous the U.S. — the Bush Administration and/or the CIA — had foreknowledge of or involvement in the events of September 11.

“I would look into the oil connections and Bush family and associates financial dealings. I would, I thought to myself, sidestep the Complicity Connection and let {him) investigate that piece of the pie.”

In PD #5, I wrote 8,000 words debunking the mainstream media mantra about the bumbling intelligence agencies, asking, “What did the CIA know and when did it know it.”

The lengthy exploration did contain a few nuggets:

– A half dozen top CIA operatives from the Reagan-Bush and Bush 1 administrations held key posts for Central Asia in the Bush 2 State Department.

Bush’s team in the State Department are “the very same individuals who indoctrinated Osama bin Laden under the Administration of his father {a one-time CIA director},” wrote Yoichi Clark Shimatsu, former general editor of The Japan Times Weekly in a September 20, 2011 article.

– The importance of the UNOCAL pipeline. (I discovered later its partner was Enron, whose financial fortunes. I would conclude, were linked to the pipeline.)

–The decades-long working triangle of the U.S.-Pakistani-Saudi Arabia intelligence agencies, creators of the “enemy” blamed for 9/11.

– A recitation of U.S. planned or executed false flag operations, including Operation Northwoods, eerily like what occurred on 9/11.

I also urged an independent Citizen’s Commission to investigate 9/11. Yet, the question I proposed for its investigation mirrored the media/congressional line: What did the CIA knew and when.

Perhaps, the U-turn was justified caution rather than real-time fear. After all, as a political reporter in the nation’s capital, I covered domestic matters, not foreign policy. And then, until the 2000 presidential election and illuminating dreams predicting the recount results, I wrote about metaphysical matters.

So, perhaps, hesitancy was smart and professional.

By Spring, 2002 intuitive and investigative ducks lined up.

The post-9/11 dreams about oil and the CIA awakened me and permitted journalistic consideration of an alternative story-line to the government/media mantra 9/11 was a terrorist attack by a previously unnamed group of Islamic fundamentalists called al-Qaeda.
