4 hijacked planes without the support of a secret service," Ehmke
said, although he did not want to point to any particular agency.

European intelligence experts dismiss the Bush "war on terrorism" as
deception and reveal the realpolitik behind the aggression against
Berlin - In Germany, where war plans for Afghanistan were already
being discussed in July and where several of the "Arab hijackers"
lived and studied, intelligence experts say the terror attacks of
September 11 could not have been carried out without the support of a
state secret service.
Eckehardt Werthebach, former president of Germany's domestic
intelligence service, Verfassungsschutz, told AFP that "the deathly
precision" and "the magnitude of planning" behind the attacks of
September 11 would have needed "years of planning."
Such a sophisticated operation, Werthebach said, would require
the "fixed frame" of a state intelligence organization, something not
found in a "loose group" of terrorists like the one allegedly led by
Mohammed Atta while he studied in Hamburg.
Many people would have been involved in the planning of such an
operation and Werthebach pointed to the absence of leaks as further
indication that the attacks were "state organized actions."
Andreas von Bulow served on the parliamentary commission which
oversees the three branches of the German secret service while a
member of the Bundestag (German parliament) from 1969 to 1994, and
wrote a book titled Im Namen des Staates (In the Name of the State)
on the criminal activities of secret services, including the CIA.
Von Bulow told AFP that he believes that the Israeli intelligence
service, Mossad, is behind the September 11 terror attacks. These
attacks, he said, were carried out to turn public opinion against the
Arabs, and boost military and security spending.
"You don't get the higher echelons," von Bulow said, referring to
the "architectural structure" which masterminds such terror attacks.
At this level, he said, the organization doing the planning, such as
Mossad, is primarily interested in affecting public opinion.
The architectural level planners use corrupt "guns for hire" such as
Abu Nidal, the Palestinian terrorist who von B'low called "an
instrument of Mossad," high-ranking Stasi (former East German secret
service) operatives, or Libyan agents who organize terror attacks
using dedicated people, for example Palestinian and Arab "freedom
The terrorists who actually commit the crimes are what von Bulow
calls "the working level," such as the 19 Arabs who allegedly
hijacked the planes on September 11. "The working level is part of
the deception," he said.
"Ninety-five percent of the work of the intelligence agencies around
the world is deception and disinformation," von Bulow said, which is
widely propagated in the mainstream media creating an accepted
version of events. "Journalists don't even raise the simplest
questions," he said adding, "those who differ are labeled as crazy."
Both Werthebach and von Bulow said the lack of an open and official
investigation, such as congressional hearings, into the events of
September 11 was incomprehensible.
AFP asked von Bulow about the Taliban's ban on opium
production: "Seventy percent of the drug trade is licensed by the
intelligence agencies," von B'low said, and they are interested in
keeping the drug traffic "running through their mills."
"The BND (German secret service) is steered by the CIA and the CIA is
steered by Mossad," von Bulow said.
Horst Ehmke, who coordinated the German secret services directly
under German prime minister Willi Brandt in the 70s, predicted a
similar terrorist attack in his novel, Torches of Heaven, published
last year, in which Turkish terrorists crash hijacked planes into
