Did Insiders Milk Terror Plot For Criminal Trading?
Indian newspaper highlights suspicious patterns, 9/11 and 7/7 were also preceded by insider trading
Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | August 24 2006
Did criminal insider speculators with informants inside the British intelligence apparatus take advantage of their foreknowledge of the announcement of a foiled terror plot to place put options on airline stocks, reaping the benefits of their subsequent fall?
So says the India Daily, claiming strange patterns in airline stocks preceded the announcement - and that carefully placed money was waiting on the sidelines to jump in and buy the stocks as cheaper prices before they rose again in subsequent trading.
Airline stocks dropped as much as 28 per cent during morning trading following the announcement of the alleged liquid bomb plot.
Though the report can be quantified as nothing more than speculation at this point, it mirrors murmurs we've been receiving from stock brokers who also claim potential foul play.
If true it would also dovetail with similar activity prior to the 9/11 attacks and the 7/7 bombings in London.
9/11 was preceded by suspicious put options in large quantities placed on American and United Airlines which betrayed advance knowledge of the attack. The investigation as to who was responsible for authorizing the transactions led directly back to former CIA director Buzzy Krongard.
In the case of the London bombings, the pound fell 6 per cent against the dollar for no apparent reason in the 10 days before the attack.
"Currencies of established countries simply do not fall that fast based upon any kind of economic or financial analysis," said a 35 year veteran economist. "Somebody somewhere knew something. Or maybe I should say 'somebodies.'"
Since even the official investigation concluded that the alleged suicide bombers had no outside links and were 'lone wolf' operatives, though this is tempered by the fact that the ringleader Khan was an MI5 informant, then one can only assume that elements within the British government profited from their foreknowledge of the attack.
Indications are that the same criminals took advantage of the fact that the decision and timing to announce the alleged foiled plot to blow up transatlantic airliners was carefully chosen at least a week in advance according to published reports. This would have provided the insider traders with ample time to arrange the transactions.
The belief in 'coincidence' is the prevalent superstition of the Age of Science.
&I don't understand why you're taking such a belligerant tone when you're obviously the ignorant one here. &

In Business as usual 9/11 and the fall of America, I wrote, speaking of winners, include the five-year US Treasury Notes. They were bought in unusually high volume before the attack. The buyers realized sizable increases in the Notes value after the attack. But this is business as usual again. In subsequent searching I came upon a staggering statistic on who made the largest amount on US Bonds: "What one group was holding tens of thousands of short positions going into 911 that reaped about 250 billion dollars in the blink of an eye? Hint! Begins with a G and ends with a T." It was the United States government.
This comes from the (linked-above) article, Who made the AA Put Options The Days Prior to 911? The title was a query from writer John Kaminski. The response was written by Walter J. Burien, Jr., a mystery himself, if not a financial wizard. He also mentioned that on the morning of 911, US Bonds moved in 3 to 4 minutes by 1.5 points back and forth three times or $1,500 per contract in seconds three times in less than 4 minutes. If that makes your head spin, try this . . .
Most institutional traders trade in blocks of 500 to 3,000 contracts. Daily transactions are 350,000 to 400,000 contracts traded. The bond market trading was suspended about one half hour after the attack. When it reopened it moved in several days by 5 points. Someone holding 1,000 contracts would have reaped five million dollars using one million. International and domestic stock index futures would have reaped over fifteen million using one million. Guess who made the biggest killing on short international and domestic stock index positions? Well, youve got the answer to that one.
Shorting or short-selling is really, as Burien points out, the ability to sell the market (i.e. price of a stock or bond, etc.) short (for less than its value at the time) on paper, that is, even if you dont own the stock, commodity, currency, bonds, etc. By using what are called derivatives, you can actually manipulate the market.
Now that preceding short sentence contains an enormous principle with enormous consequences. You can sell a put option (that the stock will go down]) or a call option (the stock will go up) lets say for a $100 without actually owning it. If the market goes in your favored direction, you liquidate the option at $50 and make $50 on your short option.
This not only turns the market into a gambling casino, but it gives people who have the ability to control the wheel of events that could cause up or down ticks an enormous amount of power to enrich themselves, in this case the United States government. As Burien points out, A monopoly (Such as: US Composite Government Funds) controlling the swings in the markets will reap unheard of profits on each and every dramatic swing. . . ." Its also a reason to misspend however much they desire, because they have an enormous and invisible income stream.
Burien calculates the overall government investment funds to be in the trillions of dollars, with less than 450 managers controlling 80 percent of the revenue. Yet they all, as he puts it, subscribe to the same newsletter, and discuss strategy at the club. In fact, Burien quotes retired Fedmeister Alan Greenspan from the Wall Street Journal in 2000, who said he was concerned about the eighty (80) trillion dollar international derivative market. Concerned? He should have asked the SEC to outlaw it. But then why would the government slaughter its own huge cash cow?
Short-Selling to Control the US and World Economy
Again Burien points out what Greenspan didnt say was that the composite US Government investment funds were the primary user, player, manipulator, and profiteers within that 80 trillion dollar derivative market. The government investment funds are professional short players with no equal in opposition. Is that really what we want the government investment managers doing, short-selling the American economy to take in hundreds of billions every year for the last 30 years? They certainly arent suspending taxes because of it.
In fact, since the government controls economic reports, not to mention media coverage, and wealth (your and my and everybody elses wealth), they can fix the economic environment to profit enormously while everyone else is going down the drain. For instance, Burien mentions that in the three months prior to 9/11, they increase[ed] their short positions to the largest diversified short positions ever held by them.
The government, in short, is playing us, not just the economy. Our assets constitute the economy, mega biz-man or working stiff or retired senior living on Social Security. By the way, its Trust Fund [excess of income over yearly pay-outs] is invested to keep it healthy, solvent. If youre at the bottom of the work force, skating around poverty, this short-selling could land you in the middle of it.
For instance, Burien notes, as the market dove lower and lower, in a quick yo-yo fashion, the government investment funds through the use of derivatives transfers that wealth into their management accounts and hands . . ." So, even though government investment portfolios take a dive on their actual stock holdings, their derivative profits, the betting sideshow, will by far offset the losses, or even yield a net profit on losses overall. But you wont see these profits. Theyre gone, as mentioned, via cash withdrawals and transfers to look like operating losses. What youll see is a hole in your portfolio, in your wallet, in your economy, in your governments ability to sustain social or other programs.
So, bottom line you, the public, provide the cash, i.e., liquidity, and the substantial US government investment funds have the absolute financial control. In fact, Burien points out that any commodity, International Stock market, or corporate complexs value can be strongly suppressed or over inflated for years by a monopoly using derivates, that is, controlled by paper transactions for commitments to buy or sell without physical ownership of what is bought or sold. Now, if thats not the greatest scam on the planet, Im George W. Bush. A truly scary thought.
In fact, whether prices go up or own, these guys stand to win, because theyre moving as a body,
controlling the game and raking in the winnings with their derivatives stick. So if we look at who held the majority of short derivatives on domestic and international stock index markets before 911, and then raked in more than a trillion bucks in profits in just weeks from those markets pursuant collapse, you would find in that golden group the Shining behind 911.
How to Stop the Stealing
The hitch, Burien points out, in finding out the Shining is that the government controls the release of that info: the federal Securities and Exchange Commission and Commodities Futures Trading Commission. Theyve got it locked up tighter than a Chase safe. In fact, the airline shorting I wrote about originally is small change next to this rake-off.
You would need to be very connected in the financial community to produce what Burien calls a generic report, one that did not violate brokerage and member houses nondisclosure agreements. But in all likelihood, even if some strong-minded folk could produce it, they would be dead, Burien suggests. So anonymity would have to be maintained as well in creating and releasing a generic report with findings that government funds were derivative benefactors. The resulting international public outcry would be deafening, as in a revolt!
Additionally, what Burien has the vision to see here is that government was/is preparing for an uprising in America. So they created a patsy, a diversion, a far away enemy, to distract the homegrown dissatisfaction. Since government circles run on the greed factor, that greed has eaten into the body politic and has feasted on the health and ethics of the people. And in some way, some part of the public realizes that and wants change.
To counter that vocal displeasure, the derivatives takeover of Americas wealth has happened almost wholly on paper and through manipulating, as Burien says, the legislature, the judiciary, and Attorney Complex over the last 60 years, and with the cooperation of the syndicated news media and education. With the conquest being done by transferring the wealth on paper, the consequences for the takers was virtually nonexistent! And quiet.
It would take a court order from a competent jurisdiction to pry open how government investment funds are handled by private managers. Management basically waves enforcement nondisclosure rules when it comes to handling government funds. An intentional cover-up on any emerging disclosure would look like the highest form of treason.
According to Burien, The showing of derivative transactions both on the domestic and international fronts would burn the governments façade alive. Based on the fund tracker, government fund accounts were holding their largest short positions ever going into 911. As always, while everybodys looking at planes, hijackers, politicians, falling buildings and the like, it comes down to following the money. Once the trail is exposed, its a whole new ballgame.
But the current players dont want a revolt on their hands, despite the fact that theyve been playing us for some 60 years. They would and are working towards a country absolutely controlled, tight as a drum. And they will get even more vicious as they are cornered, like the wounded animals they are.
Who Is Walter Burien?
As to Burien, you may be wondering who he is. According to the brief resume in his article,
Walter Burien (AKA: Bubien) was a CTA (Commodity Trading Advisor) of 14 years (1978-92).
He was National Sales Manager: US Trading Championship Money Managers Verified Ratings 10 years. (1982-1992) Tenant - 1WTC, NY, NY 1979 81.
He also lists a video release (not clear if it was his or one in which participated) on 12/12/03 TNT (The National Tea-Party) Self Sufficiency in Government Without Taxation.
Somehow, two years later he was jailed for over a year, i.e., held captive by forced incarceration from 11/23/05 - 01/09/06.
The titular reason for Buriens jailing involved a long-standing custodial case, concerning his son Walter, Jr. Perhaps it was used as an opportunity for reprisal regarding his observations on short-selling and the US government and/or the elimination of taxation in the/his video.
It also seems as if he could use a first-rate battery of lawyers to protect his civil as well as whistleblower rights. The story of his jailing is at his website http://CAFR1.com. His website also contains some brilliant observations on CAFRs, the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report of every state in the union for a number of years. The federal government also produces a CAFR annually.
Buriens email is WalterBurien@CAFR1.com. Regardless of the vagaries of his custodial case, it is my contention that Walter Burien is a fearless and brilliant patriot under fire. I personally thank him for his information and insights into short-selling America. This is another terrible business as usual.
Don't believe anything they say.
And at the same time,
Don't believe that they say anything without a reason.
