In the USS LIberty affair, the father of US presidential candidate John McCain led what some might call an 'investigation", the Naval Court of Inquiry, but what others would call a "whitewash" to help cover up the fact that combined elements of the IDF savagely and brutally attacked the Liberty, killing 34 US personnel and wounding 174.
In the USS Cole affair, FBI agent John O'Neil
led the investigation and was getting background and info on the true attackers of the Cole when he was recalled to DC to never return to Yemen.
Why was the Cole sent to Yemen to refuel? Refueling is normally done at sea, so why send a US ship alone, to Yemen for refueling?
Was the upcoming US presidential election a factor?
Was a "false-flag" needed to help teh Bush/Cheney Junta win the election?
Some sources, like the NYT, issued hit pieces on O'Neil, while others, praised him for his tireless efforts in investigating the Cole attack.
However, upon arriving in Yemen, he complained about inadequate security. As his team investigated, O'Neill came into conflict with Barbara Bodine, the U.S. ambassador to Yemen. The two had widely divergent views on how to handle searches of Yemeni property and interviews with citizens and government officials, and they only grew further apart as time progressed.
After a month in Yemen, O'Neill returned to New York 20 pounds (9 kg) lighter than when he left. He hoped to return to that country to continue the investigation, but was blocked by Bodine and others. He continued to investigate the Cole bombing, but eventually decided that the FBI investigation in Yemen must be pulled out due to inadequate security.
A New York Times report of August 19, 2001 suggested that O'Neill had been the subject of an "internal investigation" at the FBI.
But others praised John's work in Yemen:
But John gained the respect, and he was on the ground over there for a substantial period of time.
He gained the respect gradually of the president of the highest government officials over there, and we've seen the fruits of those relationships -- and we still are.
Did John suspect Israeli involvement in the USS Cole bombing? That seems to be the case, as the US ambassador to Yemen, Bodine, appealed to Secretary of State Albright to deny O'Neill's return to Yemen to continue the investigation.
Bodine wanted O'Neill to drop his bodyguards and he became suspicious of Mossad assassination. Bodine and Madeleine Albright finally went to the FBI Director, Louis Freeh, to remove John O'Neill from Yemen.
O'Neill retired from the FBI in August 2001 and took a job with the WTC in New York. He was appointed by Kroll Associates, namely by the controversial managing director Jerome Hauer.
Who is Jerome Hauer?
Jerome Hauer's deep family roots in the New York Jewish community. Hauer's mother, Rose Muscatine Hauer, is the retired Dean of the Beth Israel School of Nursing and the Honorary President of the New York Chapter of Hadassah, the Daughters of Zion movement that is one of the central Zionist organizations involved in the creation and maintenance of the State of Israel.
Jerome Hauer is the son of the late Milton G. Hauer and Rose Muscatine who married April 4, 1949. His mother's parents, Hyman David Muscatine (1881-1964) and Rebecca Bertha (nee Gartner), were Hebrew-speaking Zionists. They both came to the United States in 1908-1909; Hyman from "Russia Poland" in 1908 and Rebecca from the Austrian Empire in 1909.
O'Neill was sent to the WTC just a day before the 9/11 attacks by the son of an avid Zionist involved in a movement that fought for the creation of Israel and is still invovled in seeing that apartheid state expand and thrive.
A job in which O'Neill, like many others, were killed on 9/11 by a foreign government working in concert with subversive elements within the US government.
Peeling back these layers is like peeling back the skin on an onion; It will make your eyes water from the pain. The pain of knowledge.
