Obama’s VP Needs to Come Clean On 9/11 Bagman Mahmood Ahmed
August 23, 2008
Now that Joe Biden is Obama’s running mate and may soon be the vice president of the United States, he needs to answer a few questions.
As 9/11 Truth movement member Jon Gold notes, the following questions were asked by the Family Steering Committee, an independent, nonpartisan group of individuals who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001.
Why did Mahmood Ahmed, Director of Pakistan’s secret service, the ISI, order Saeed Sheikh to wire $100,000 to hijacker Mohamed Atta?
What was Mahmood Ahmed’s relationship with Al Qaeda?
Where did the money come from?
Did officials in Pakistan know in advance about the terrorist attack?
On September 11th, Mahmood Ahmed had a breakfast meeting in Washington, D.C., with House and Senate Intelligence Committee chairmen, Rep. Porter Goss and Senator Bob Graham. What were they discussing?
The 9/11 Commission also presumably heard about Lt. Gen. Ahmed from FBI Whistle-blower Sibel Edmonds during her 3 1/2 hours of testimony. At the insistence of the families. They may have also heard of Lt. Gen. Ahmed during a meeting with the Pakistani ISI. The 9/11 Commission did not answer the families’ question, and did not mention Lt. General Mahmood Ahmed in their report even though they were mandated to give a “full and complete accounting” of the 9/11 attacks.
As the New York Times reported September 13, 2001, Joe Biden, as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, met with Mahmood. Ahmed also met with George Tenet, CIA head, senators Bob Graham and John Kyl, Rep. Porter Goss, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, and Secretary of State Colin Powell.
It is common knowledge that Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, going under the name Mustafa Muhammad Ahmad, sent about $100,000 from the United Arab Emirates to Mohammed Atta, a fact confirmed by Dennis Lormel, director of FBI’s financial crimes unit. Former Pakistani president Purvez Musharraf told the London Times Sheikh was recruited by MI6, took an active part in demonstrations against the Serbs in relation to their role in Bosnia, was sent Kosovo to join the jihad alongside Harkat ul-Ansar, later Harkat ul-Mujahedeen, and attended ISI training camps. Muslim convert Aukai Collins, who fought with Islamic Chechen irregulars, claims Harkat ul-Ansar received support from Osama bin Laden, the documented CIA asset.
It is highly unlikely Biden, as chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, is ignorant of these facts. Biden needs to come clean on his meetings with Mahmood Ahmed. Considering Biden’s reticence, his harsh words for Pakistan, documented in Jason Bermas’ Fabled Enemies documentary, certainly ring hollow and his exchange with truth activist Luke Rudkowski on the subject raises more questions than it answers.
