In September 1991, shortly after the end of the cold war, a cabal of elite bankers and intelligence spooks led by George H. W. Bush financed a 240 billion dollar covert operations warchest through the purchase of ten-year securities that were scheduled to come due on September 12th, 2001.
Overall a critical mass of brokers from the major government security brokerages in the Twin Towers had to be eliminated to create chaos in the government securities market. A situation needed to be created wherein $240 billion dollars of covert securities could be electronically “cleared” without anyone asking questions- which happened when the Federal Reserve declared an emergency and invoked its “emergency powers” that very afternoon.
On September 14th The Securities and Exchange Commission declared a national emergency and for the first time in U.S. history invoked its emergency powers under Securities Exchange Act Section 12(k) and eased regulatory restrictions for clearing and settling security trades for the next 15 days. These changes would have allowed the estimated $240 billion in covert government securities to be cleared upon maturity without the standard regulatory controls around identification of ownership. The Towers needed to be demolished to create a big enough mess, that the illicit activities taking place behind the scenes that morning could be hidden in the confusion of that day.
