ERSKINE OVERNIGHT IS ARCHIVED @
TED GUNDERSON WILL BE MY GUEST @ 10PM (Pacific) tonight 11/15
911 Appears to have been a set up from our own government who had knowledge if
not complicity fully 6 months prior to 911. We MUST have a full complete and
honest investigation. To date the 911 investigation costs are 4 million whereas
43 million was spent to investigate Monica & Bill. I was no fan of Clinton, but
these charges MUST be examined. If we are to remain a free Republic we must have
a full and open inquiry.
TOP-LEVEL Sources Confirm AFP Exclusives-
Feds Knew of 9-11 and did nothing
There is compelling evidence that U.S. authorities had specific advance warning
about 9-11 and other forthcoming terrorist attacks on American soil-but failed
By Joseph R. Corson
Federal officials are trying to intimidate an individual who-six months prior to
the 9-11 tragedy-had provided, through multiple venues, early warning, based on
inside information, that terrorists reputedly connected to al Qaeda were
planning massive attacks on American soil.
On Jan. 8, 2003, high-ranking FBI official Ted Gunderson (ret.) visited American
Free Press headquarters on Capitol Hill in Washington and provided detailed
documentary material that unveils a remarkable series of events.
Gunderson has compiled evidence demonstrating beyond any question that the FBI
is now engaged in a clear-cut effort to cover up its foreknowledge of specific
allegations about then-impending terrorist attacks of the type that happened on
Sept. 11, 2001.
Gunderson's charges are particularly powerful precisely because of who he
(Gunderson) happens to be: a 27-year FBI veteran who capped his career in the
bur eau as senior special agent in charge of the Los Angeles office of the FBI.
In Los Angeles, Gunderson had over 700 people under his command and operated a
$22 million budget. Previously he served as special agent-in-charge of FBI
offices in such major cities as Memphis and Dallas.
Following his retirement, Gunderson served as security coordinator for the Pan
American Games, appointed by the U.S. attorney general, Griffin Bell, to the
post, and later was a consultant to the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Committee and
the California Narcotics Authority. Today, Gunderson operates an international
security consulting agency based in Los Angeles. He is also a correspondent for
Gunderson has his own "inside" knowledge of the al Qaeda network going back to
the days when purported al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was still officially
allied with the United States.
As AFP reported on Jan. 7, 2002, Gunderson met bin Laden in the spring of 1986
when bin Laden-traveling under the name "Tim Osman"-visited the United States
under State Department and CIA sponsorship for the purpose of securing arms and
aid for Afghan rebels fighting against the Soviet occupation forces in
Thus having forged contacts with persons connected to bin Laden's al Qaeda
network, Gunderson was well positioned to learn-in the wake of the 9-11
attacks-stunning information pointing toward negligence by U.S. authorities,
including the FBI, in failing to respond to early warnings about possible
Here's the remarkable story that Gunderson provided to AFP, based on information
he has gleaned from several sources, including, most specifically, the source
that AFP has chosen to dub "Paul Revere":
As early as February of 2001-seven months before 9-11-"Paul Revere" (hereinafter
"Revere") provided information outlining his contact with sources inside an
Islamic group called "the Base" (al Qaeda) and indicated that he, "Revere," had
learned that this group was planning a terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
In his letters, copies of which are in the hands of AFP, "Revere" said he could
provide the specific name of a certain individual in the "Base" who:
• Was coordinating forthcoming terrorist attacks on the United States;
• Had information on the movement of Soviet-made shoulder-fired missiles into
the United States;
• Was coordinating forthcoming skyjackings;
• Was coordinating bombings and espionage; and
• Knew the identities of "sleepers" (i.e. deep cover, long-term foreign agents)
operating in the United States and overseas.
In his letters, "Revere" stated that he would not divulge specific details
unless the U.S. government granted immunity from prosecution to his sources.
"Revere" indicated that his sources could also furnish information concerning
the handling of false identifications and passports for the group. Next,
"Revere" sent a certified letter to a member of Congress in an effort to
expedite the reporting of this information to the appropriate authorities. AFP
has a copy of this letter.
Six days later, one of the attorneys who had received the letter from "Revere"
sent a letter to Secretary of State Colin Powell, with a copy to Attorney
General John Ashcroft, advising that he had received information concerning an
imminent terrorist attack on the United States. The attorney specifically
requested that an agency other than the FBI obtain the details from "Revere."
AFP also has a copy of this letter.
One day later, "Revere" made contact with a number of individuals-the two
aforementioned attorneys and two additional attorneys, all of whose names are
also known to AFP-as well as John O'Neill, the FBI terrorism expert who was
known for being keen on the capture of bin Laden.
Subsequent to the contact from "Revere," O'Neill re tired from the FBI and
assumed the post as chief of security for the World Trade Center just one day
before the Sept. 11, 2001, mass murders. Tragically, O'Neill died in the World
Trade Center attack. Following 9-11, numerous sources in the mainstream media
indicated that O'Neill had been disillusioned with the FBI's failure to pursue
In his conversations with O'Neill and others, "Revere" advised that he had
learned that a shipment of 37 Soviet-made Strela-3 and Igla-9 missiles had been
shipped from Bulgaria to Colombia and thence to Canada, destined for Thabet
Aviation in Quebec City.
One of the attorneys passed this specific information on to the office of the
FBI and to the U.S. attorney in a major Midwestern city, the location of which
is known to AFP. During the next six weeks-the end of March 2001-a special agent
from an FBI office visited "Revere." The FBI office and the name of the agent
are known to AFP. At that time "Revere":
• Provided the agent the name of the specific aforementioned individual (located
in the previously referenced state on the Eastern seaboard) who was planning the
attacks on the United States;
• Provided the agent information on a false identification ring operating in
Montreal and in the state located on the Eastern seaboard;
• Indicated to the agent that he could furnish the exact false identification of
terrorists who had been chosen for future actions inside the United States;
• Advised the agent that the 37 Soviet-made missiles were being handled through
Thabet Aviation in Quebec City and that this firm also brokered old but
serviceable aircraft (Swearingens, DC-9s, 747s and high performance military) to
be used in drug-running and future terrorist attacks in a so-called "40-minute
war" scenario by using aircraft as flying missiles; and
• Informed the agent that terrorists were taking flight training in various
types of aircraft brokered by Thabet, and that, if given immunity for himself
and his contacts, he would provide specific information where said training was
taking place and the identities of the students involved.
Between the date of the March interview and Sept. 11, 2001, "Revere" heard
nothing further from the FBI or any other federal agency. However, just days
after the Sept. 11 attacks, "Revere" was again visited by the FBI agent and
another unidentified agent. At that time they accused "Revere" of being
"anti-government" and threatened him with prosecution. The agents also made
additional threats of possible retaliation against "Revere," the specifics of
which are known to AFP but cannot be revealed in order to protect the identity
In the months that followed, "Revere" secured the assistance of a United States
senator, whose name is known to AFP, in seeking to secure from federal records
the specific date in March of 2001 on which he ("Revere") had first been
interviewed by the FBI agent. AFP is in possession of a copy of the FBI's
official response which specifically acknowledges the date of the second
interview, but which does not acknowledge the earlier interview in question.
The FBI letter admits that "Revere" had met with the FBI on a number of
occasions but does not acknowledge the first meeting described by "Revere." It
was after this that the FBI:
• Seized the computers and other items without a warrant from per sons who were
in contact with "Revere"-none of whom, quite notably, is knowledgeable in any
way about "terrorism" or the 9-11 attacks;
• Demanded all letters, documents, correspondence, books, etc. and inquired
about any alleged "Arab" contacts of "Revere"; and
• Advised these individuals that "Revere" had been making irresponsible
statements about the is sue of terrorism and that if these individuals provided
"Revere" any assistance that they might suffer criminal legal consequences.
Asked Gunderson: "Is the purpose of these raids and the FBI's reluctance to
confirm the March 2001 meeting with 'Revere'-six months prior to 9-11-part of a
campaign to eliminate any trace or proof that the FBI had official knowledge of
the impending attacks?"
