"... the Western mass democracies were subjected to brainwashing"

 9-11: Germans Read How U.S. Gov't Lies German
 Minister's Interview
 [Source: Tagesspiegel, Jan. 13, 2002]

 The following interview with Mr. von Buelow appeared in the 
 German daily 'Tagesspiegel,' on Jan. 13. 2002

 Q: You seem so angry, really upset. 

 Von Buelow: I can explain what's bothering me: I see
 that after the horrifying attacks of Sept. 11, all
 political public opinion is being forced into a
 direction that I consider wrong.

 Q: What do you mean by that?

 Von Buelow: I wonder why many questions are not asked.
  Normally, with such
 a terrible thing, various leads and tracks appear that
 are then commented on, by the investigators, the
 media, the government: Is there something here or not?
 Are the explanations plausible?  This time, this is
 not the case at all. It already began just hours after
 the attacks in New York and Washington and-

 Q: In those hours, there was horror, and grief.

 Von Buelow: Right, but actually it was astounding:
 There are 26 intelligence services in the U.S.A. with
 a budget of $30 billion-

 Q: More than the German defense budget.

 Von Buelow: --which were not able to prevent the
 attacks. In fact, they didn't even have an inkling
 they would happen. For 60 decisive minutes,  the
 military and intelligence agencies let the fighter
 planes stay on the ground, 48 hours later, however,
 the FBI presented a list of suicide attackers. Within
 ten days, it emerged that seven of them were still

 Q: What, please?

 Von Buelow: Yes, yes. And why did the FBI chief take
 no position regarding
 contradictions? Where the list came from, why it was
 false? If I were the
 chief investigator (state attorney) in such a case, I
 would regularly go to
 the public, and give information on which leads are
 valid and which not.

 Q: The U.S. government talked about an emergency
 situation after the attacks: They said they were in a
 war. Is it not understandable that one does not tell
 the enemy everything one knows about him?

 Von Buelow: Naturally. But a government which goes to
 war, must first establish who the attacker, the enemy,
 is. It has a duty to provide evidence. According to
 its own admission, it has not been able to present any
 evidence that would hold up in court.

 Q: Some information on the perpetrators has been
 proven with documents. 
 The suspected leader, Mohammad Atta, left Portland for
 Boston on the 
 morning of Sept.  11, in order to board the plane that
 later hit the World Trade Center

 Von Buelow: If this Atta was the decisive man in the
 operation, it's really
 strange that he took such a risk of taking a plane
 that would reach Boston
 such a short time before the connecting flight. Had
 his flight been a few
 minutes late, he would not have been in the plane that
 was hijacked. Why
 should a sophisticated terrorist do this? One can, by
 the way, read on CNN
 (Internet) that none of these names were on the
 official passenger lists. None of them had gone
 through the check-in procedures. And why did none of
 the threatened pilots give the agreed-upon code 7700
 over the [Steuerknueppel: STEERING NOB?] to the ground
 station? In addition: The black boxes which are fire
 and shock proof, as well as the voice recordings,
 contain no valuable data-

 Q: That sounds like-

 Von Buelow: --like assailants who, in their
 preparations, leave tracks behind them like a herd of
 stampeding elephants? They made payments with credit
 cards with their own names; they reported to their
 flight instructors with their own names. They left
 behind rented cars with flight manuals in Arabic for
 jumbo jets. They took with them, on their suicide
 trip, wills and farewell letters, which fall into the
 hands of the FBI, because they were stored in the
 wrong place and wrongly addressed. Clues were left
 behind like in a child's game of hide-and-seek, which
 were to be followed! There is also the theory of one
 British flight engineer: According to this, the
 steering of the planes was perhaps taken out of the
 pilots' hands from outside.  The Americans had
 developed a method in the 1970s, whereby they could
 rescue hijacked planes by intervening into the
 computer piloting [automatic pilot system]. This
 theory says, this technique was abused in this case.
 That's a theory....

 Q: Which sounds really adventurous, and was never

 Von Buelow: You see! I do not accept this theory, but
 I find it worth considering. And what about the
 obscure stock transactions? In the week prior to the
 attacks, the amount of transactions in stocks in
 American Airlines, United Airlines, and insurance
 companies, increased 1,200%. It was for a value of $15
 billion. Some people must have known something. Who?

 Q: Why don't you speculate on who it might have been.

 Von Buelow: With the help of the horrifying attacks,
 the Western mass democracies were subjected to
 brainwashing. The enemy image of anti-communism
 doesn't work any more; it is to be replaced by peoples
 of Islamic belief. They are accused of having given
 birth to suicidal terrorism.

 Q: Brainwashing? That's a tough term.

 Von Buelow: Yes? But the idea of the enemy image
 doesn't come from me. It
 comes from Zbigniew Brzezinski and Samuel Huntington,
 two policy-makers of
 American intelligence and foreign policy. Already in
 the middle of the 1990s, Huntingon believed people in
 Europe and the U.S. needed someone they could hate -
 this would strengthen their identification with their
 own society. And Brzezinski, the mad dog, as adviser
 to President Jimmy Carter, campaigned for the
 exclusive right of the U.S. to seize all the raw
 materials of the world, especially oil and gas.

 Q: You mean, the events of Sept. 11--

 Von Buelow: --fit perfectly in the concept of the
 armaments industry, the
 intelligence agencies, the whole
 military-industrial-academic complex. 
 This is in fact conspicuous. The huge raw materials
 reserves of the former
 Soviet Union are now at their disposal, also the
 pipeline routes and-

 Q: Erich Follach described that at length in
 {Spiegel}: "It's a matter 
 Of military bases, drugs, oil and gas reserves."

 Von Buelow: I can state: the planning of the attacks
 was technically and
 organizationally a master achievement. To hijack four
 huge airplanes within
 a few minutes and within one hour, to drive them into
 their targets with
 complicated flight maneuvers! This is unthinkable,
 without years-long support from secret apparatuses of
 the state and industry.

 Q: You are a conspiracy theorist!

 Von Buelow: Yeah, yeah. That's the ridicule heaped [on
 those raising these
 questions] by those who would prefer to follow the
 official politically
 correct line. Even investigative journalists are fed
 propaganda and
 disinformation. Anyone who doubts that, doesn't have
 all his marbles! That
 is your accusation.

 Q: Your career actually speaks against the idea that
 you are not in your
 right mind. You were already in the 1970s, state
 secretary in the Defense
 Ministry; in 1993 you were the SPD [Social Democratic
 Party] speaker in the
 Schalk-Golodkowski investigation committee-

 Von Buelow: And it all began there! Until that time, I
 did not have any great knowledge of the work of
 intelligence agencies. And now we had to take note of
 a great discrepancy: We shed light on the dealings of
 the Stasi and other East bloc intelligence agencies in
 the field of economic criminality, but as soon as we
 wanted to know something about the activities of the
 BND [German intelligence] or the CIA, it was
 mercilessly blocked. No information, no cooperation,
 nothing! That's when I was first taken aback.

 Q: Schalck-Golodkowski mediated, among other things,
 various business deals
 abroad. When you looked at his case more closely-

 Von Buelow: We found, for example, a clue in Rostock,
 where Schalck organized his weapons depot. Well, then
 we happened upon an affiliation  of Schalck in Panama,
 and then we happened upon Manuel Noriega, who was for
 many years President, drug dealer, and money
 launderer, all in one, right? And this Noriega was
 also on the payroll of the CIA, for $200,000 a year.
 These were things that really made me curious.

 Q: You wrote a book on the dealings of the CIA and Co.
  In the meantime, you have become an expert regarding
 the strange things related to intelligence services'

 Von Buelow: "Strange things" is the wrong term. What
 has gone on, and goes
 on, in the name of intelligence services, are true

 Q: What would you say determines the work of
 intelligence services?

 Von Buelow: So that we don't have any
 misunderstandings: I find that it makes sense to have
 intelligence services....

 Q: You don't think much of the earlier proposals by
 the Greens, who wanted
 to dismantle these agencies?

 Von Buelow: No. It is right to take a look behind the
 scenes. Getting intelligence about the intentions of
 an enemy, makes sense. It is important
 when one tries to put oneself into the mind of the
 enemy. Whoever wants to
 understand the CIA's methods, has to deal with its
 main tasks, {covert operations}: below the level of
 war, and outside international law, foreign
 states are to be influenced, by organizing
 insurrections, terrorist attacks, usually combined
 with drugs and weapons trade, and money laundering. 
 This is essentially very simple: One arms violent
 people with weapons. Since, however, it must not under
 any circumstances come out, that there is an
 intelligence agency behind it, all traces are erased,
 with tremendous deployment of resources.  I have the
 impression that this kind of intelligence agency
 spends 90% of its time this way: creating false leads.
 So that, if anyone suspects the collaboration of the
 agencies, he is accused of the sickness of conspiracy
 madness. The truth often comes out only years later.
 CIA chief Allen Dulles once said: In case of doubt, I
 would even lie to the Congress!

 Q: The American journalist Seymour M. Hersh, wrote in
 the {New Yorker,} that even some people in the CIA and
 government assumed, that certain leads had been laid
 in order to confuse the investigators. Who, Herr von
 Buelow, would have done this?

 Von Buelow: I don't know that either. How should I? I
 simply use my common sense, and-See: The terrorists
 behaved in such a way to attract attention. And as
 practicing Muslims, they were in a strip-tease bar,
 and, drunken, stuck dollar bills into the panty of the

 Q: Things like that also happen.

 Von Buelow: It may be. As a lone fighter, I cannot
 prove anything, that's beyond my capabilities. I have
 real difficulties, however, to imagine that
 all this all sprung out of the mind of an evil man in
 his cave.

 Q: Mr. von Buelow, you yourself say that you are alone
 in your criticism.
 Formerly, you were part of the political
 establishment, now you are an outsider.

 Von Buelow: That is a problem sometimes, but one gets
 used to it. By the way, I know a lot of people,
 including very influential ones, who agree with me,
 but only in whispers, never publicly.

 Q: Do you still have contact with old SPD companions,
 such as Egon Bahr and
 former Chancellor Helmut Schmidt?

 Von Buelow: There are no close contacts any more. I
 wanted to go to the Last SPD party congress, but I was

 Q: Can it be, Mr. von Buelow, that you are a
 mouthpiece for typical anti-Americanism?

 Von Buelow: Nonsense, this has absolutely nothing to
 do with anti-Americanism. I am a great admirer of this
 great, open, free society, and always have been. I
 studied in the U.S.

 Q: How did you get the idea that there could be a link
 between the attacks and the American intelligence

 Von Buelow: Do you remember the first attack on the
 World Trade Center in

 Q: Six people were killed and over a thousand
 wounded,by a bomb explosion.

 Von Buelow: In the middle was the bombmaker, a former
 Egyptian officer. He
 had pulled together some Muslims for the attack. They
 were snuck into 
 the country by the CIA, despite a State Department ban
 on their entry. At the same time, the leader of the
 band was an FBI informant. And he made a deal with the
 authorities: At the last minute, the dangerous
 explosive material would be replaced by a harmless
 powder. The FBI did not stick to the deal. The bomb
 exploded, so to speak, with the knowledge of the FBI.
 The official story of the crime was quickly found: The
 criminals were evil Muslims.

 Q: At the time Soviet soldiers marched into
 Afghanistan, you were in the cabinet of Helmut
 Schmidt. What was it like?

 Von Buelow: The Americans pushed for trade sanctions,
 they demanded the boycott of the Olympic games in

 Q.... which the German government followed...

 Von Buelow: And today we know: It was the strategy of
 the American security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, to
 destabilize the Soviet Union from neighboring Muslim
 countries. They lured the Russians into Afghanistan
 and then prepared for them a hell on earth, their
 Vietnam. With decisive support of the U.S. 
 intelligence agencies, at least 30,000 Muslim fighters
 were trained in Afghanistan and Pakistan, a bunch of
 good-for-nothings and fanatics who were, and still are
 today, ready for anything. And one of them is Osama
 bin Laden. I wrote years ago:' 'It was out of this
 brood, that the Taliban grew up in Afghanistan, who
 had been brought up in the Koran schools financed by
 American and Saudi funds, the Taliban who are now
 terrorizing the country and destroying 

 Q: Even though you say, for the U.S. it was a matter
 of raw materials in the region, the starting point for
 the U.S. aggression, was the terrorist attack which
 cost thousands of human lives.

 Von Buelow: Completely true. One must always keep this
 gruesome act in mind. Nonetheless, in the analysis of
 political processes, I am allowed to look and see who
 has advantages and disadvantages, and what is
 coincidental. When in doubt, it is always worthwhile
 to take a look at a map, where are raw materials
 resources, and the routes to them? Then lay a map of
 civil wars and conflicts on top of that-they coincide.
 The same is the case with the third map: nodal points
 of the drug trade. Where this all comes together, the
 American intelligence services are not far away. By
 the way, the Bush family is linked to oil, gas, and
 weapons trade, through the bin Laden family.

 Q: What do you think of the Bin Laden films?

 Von Buelow: When one is dealing with intelligence
 services, one can imagine
 manipulations of the highest quality. Hollywood could
 provide these techniques. I consider the videos
 inappropriate as evidence.

 Q: You believe the CIA is capable of anything,
 [wouldn't stop at 

> Von Buelow: The CIA, in the state interests of the
 U.S., does not have to abide by any law in
 interventions abroad, is not bound by international
 law; only the President gives orders.  And when funds
 are cut, peace is on the horizon, then a bomb explodes
 somewhere. Thus it is proven, that you can't do
without the intelligence services; and that the
 critics are {nuts,} as Father Bush called them, Bush
 who was once CIA head and President.  You have to see
 that the U.S. spends $30 billion on intelligence
 services, and $13 billion on anti-drug work. And what
 comes out of it? The chief of a special unit of the
 strategic anti-drug work declared, in despair, after
 30 years of service, that in every big,
 important drug case, the CIA came in and took it out
 of my hands. (Rosalinda: Michael Levin)
 Q: Do you criticize the German government for its
 reaction after Sept. 11?

 Von Buelow: No. To assume that the government were
 independent in these
 questions, would be naive.

 Q: Herr von Buelow, what will you do now?

 Von Buelow: Nothing. My task is concluded by saying,
 it could not have been
 that way [according to the official story] Search for
 the truth!
