Stocks inquiry
Millions of shares sold before disaster


THE CIA has asked the City regulators in London to investigate suspicious sales of millions of shares before last Tuesday's attacks in America in the belief that the paper trail will lead to the terrorists.

American authorities are investigating unusually large numbers of shares in airlines, insurance companies and arms manufacturers that were sold off in the days and weeks before the attacks.

They believe that the sales were by people who knew about the impending disaster.

911 - News Russian style (so called "khaltura")

Как сообщает НТВ.Ру со ссылкой на западные СМИ, расшифрован черный ящик "Боинга-757", рухнувшего в Пенсильвании утром 11 сентября. Доподлинно стало известно, что пассажиры сорвали планы террористов.

Смотрим источник.

Как сообщает MIGnews со ссылкой на The Times, после расшифровки "черного ящика" самолета "Боинг-757", рухнувшего в Пенсильвании утром 11 сентября, стало известно, что пассажиры сорвали планы террористов.

Смотрим МИГНьюс:

Как сообщает "The Times", после расшифровки "черного ящика" самолета "Боинг-757" (рейс #93), потерпевшего крушение в Пенсильвании утром 11 сентября, и проведения тщательной экспертизы, стали известны имена четырех пассажиров, которым удалось вытеснить террористов из кабины пилотов и направить самолет на землю

Характерно, что Мигньюсы ссылку на Таймс не поставили, зато НТВ-шники ее нашли. Но, видать, посмотреть поленились.


A series of dramatic telephone calls to relatives and emergency operators show how the four were locked in a desperate struggle with the hijackers<...>
FBI investigators have used recordings and recollections of the telephone calls to piece together the final terrifying moments aboard Flight 93 and are now convinced that the terrorists would have crashed the aircraft into the White House had the passengers not fought back.

То есть речь (пока) идет ТОЛЬКО о телефонных звонках. Никаких черных ящиков.

Оно и понятно, ведь:

-- Technicians have examined the so-called black boxes from United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania during Tuesday's terrorist attack, but the FBI and the boxes' manufacturer aren't saying what information was recovered.

Демократия в действии. Кабул. Сентябрь 1979

Кусок из книги M. Hassan Kakar "Afghanistan.The Soviet Invasion and the Afghan Response, 1979-1982" (1995)

On the day when Taraki’s plane was about to land at Kabul airport, Sarwari had arranged that a death squad would gun down Amin when he was on his way to receive Taraki. But in this game Amin proved superior to his rivals. Since the official next to Sarwari in AGSA worked secretly for him, Amin knew of Sarwari’s moves against him. Also, through the efforts of Sayyed Daoud Tarun, Amin was informed of Taraki’s moves. Amin had received an encoded telegram from Tarun in Moscow, stating that the Moscow meeting had decided on his elimination. Although barred from the meeting, Tarun knew of its content through a minute intelligence device that he had planted in his master’s (Taraki’s) pocket. Tarun served more as an attendant of Taraki than as a member of the delegation. Not long afterwards, what had allegedly gone on in Moscow was known in Kabul, and the news of the meeting between Taraki and Karmal spread like wildfire. On the day of Taraki’s arrival in Kabul, Amin had taken control of the airport, replacing its personnel with persons loyal to him. He himself wore an armored shield under his clothes. On that occasion no incident occurred.

Дружба народов. Кабул. Декабрь 1979

Другой кусок оттуда же.

Если пытаться перевести на сегодняшний язык, то непонятно, кто из действующих лиц "террорист", кто "борец с террором".

All this time President Amin was lying half-conscious in the palace, incapacitated by KGB agents. Around one o’clock that day, Amin, with a number of his leading party and government officials, had been poisoned when consuming a special luncheon that the palace had arranged in honor of Ghulam Dastagir Panjsheri, a member of the central committee of the party. Panjsheri had returned from a long trip to the Soviet Union. Although not on good terms with Amin, Panjsheri had told him that he had brought good tidings and wished to discuss them with him and other comrades. Since Panjsheri was the only one who did not consume the poisoned food, he was suspected. Some kind of light poison had been mixed with the soup and ashak (a special Afghan dish) served by two Russian girls who were working as waitresses in the palace. Also, “a number of Afghan leaders were arrested at a Soviet-hosted reception staged at the Intercontinental Hotel. . . . Similarly, Afghan army liaison officers were isolated at a reception party.”

The chief cook of the palace was Michail Talebov, a native of Soviet Azerbaijan, who, as a lieutenant colonel, was in the pay of the KGB. He had been employed at the urging of Soviet advisers. Amin was unwilling to have either the waitresses or the cook, but his Soviet comrades had told him that because his personal safety was a matter of utmost significance, these persons were necessary to perform such sensitive jobs. Amin was still reluctant to accept the advice. At last he acquiesced, but he made it known that they were welcome only until he found some trustworthy Afghan employees.
