In spite of a 20-month campaign of intimidation by one of the most powerful prosecutors in America, author Peter Lance has succeeded in getting the updated edition of Triple Cross, his book on the 9/11 terrorist attacks, released to the public.
Originally published in 2006, Triple Cross: How Bin Laden's Master Spy Penetrated the CIA, the Green Berets, and the FBI details the incredible story of Ali Mohamed, the Egyptian who managed to penetrate the deepest levels of the U.S. intelligence community and provide vital assistance to Al Qaeda terrorist operations for years prior to the 9/11 terror attacks — while on the U.S. government's payroll.===snipped===> "And Ye Shall Know The Truth And The Truth Shall Set You Free"
On June 13, Peter Lance filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility requesting an investigation of Fitzgerald's attempts "to use the authority of his office to intimidate me and my publisher."
In his complaint, Lance asked the OPR to investigate "the twenty (20) month campaign
by Patrick Fitzgerald, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, to kill the hardcover and paperback editions of my HarperCollins (HCP) investigative book Triple Cross."
Mr. Lance's complaint continues:
As you'll see from the thirty-two (32) pages of letters sent by Mr. Fitzgerald from October 2007 to June 2009, he has attempted to use the authority of his office to intimidate me and my publisher; threatening repeatedly to sue for defamation and other relief if we did not stop publication of the book, which was critical of Mr. Fitzgerald's performance in office.
On November 16, 2007, Fitzgerald sent HarperCollins a 16-page "demand" letter, using the fax machine of the U.S. Attorney office in Chicago. "I believe," Lance says in his complaint, "that Mr. Fitzgerald's intent in using Dept. of Justice resources to send a letter purporting to press his personal claim, was a clear attempt to intimidate me and chill my publisher."
Lance, a five-time Emmy award-winning investigative reporter, has produced in Triple Cross a carefully researched and meticulously documented bombshell that threatens to explode the careers of current and former high-level government officials who are culpable of negligence and/or malfeasance (and in some cases much worse) in relation to some of the most important terrorist attacks on the United States over the past two decades.
It represents an enormous multi-year investigative effort by Peter Lance to connect the dots, showing the important linkages tying together several of the most important terrorist attacks on America: the 1990 assassination of Rabbi Meier Kahane, the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. Ali Mohamed played a key role in all of these cases — and others besides.
Lance is one of the few investigative journalists from the mainstream media to delve into the abundant evidence (which The New American covered extensively over a period of years) showing the connections of Ali Mohamed and convicted 1993 World Trade Center bomber Ramzi Yousef to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
Instead of investigating this evidence, the federal government has gone to great lengths to bury it. Patrick Fitzgerald's lawsuit threat appears to be the latest effort in this ongoing cover-up.

For sure there is a concerted strategy to manipulate global perception. And the mass media are operating as its compliant assistants, failing both to resist it and to expose it. The sheer ease with which this machinery has been able to do its work reflects a creeping structural weakness which now afflicts the production of our news.

From an operational standpoint, perhaps it would behoove U.S. to make a more direct hypothesis in that Ali Mohamed was nothing more but a liaison being used to setup a front operation as to allow a much larger 'piggy back operation' to unfold hidden in the background using the front operation as an excuse and deception for the attacks made against WTC on the 11th September 2001.
