Entwined in the many conspiracy theories that state 9/11 was something other than what we were told, there is a story about Israeli men that were arrested on the George Washington Bridge, who had a van full of explosives and were going to detonate.
Here is one example of the report that ran on the mainstream media:
Shortly after many of the stories appeared — they were retracted or never spoke of again.
What does this allegedly prove? Many claim that Israel (an ally of the United States) had foreknowledge of the attack, and may have even played a role in. The public story we were told, which led to the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan, was that it was Al-Qaeda.
This story also relates to what has been dubbed the “Five Dancing Israelis” who were found to be videotaping the aftermath of the attack on 9/11, and were shouting joyous praises and dancing in the streets, but that story is also highly controversial.
I filed a FOIA request to multiple agencies regarding the above, to see if they may have anything specifically on the explosive found on the George Washington Bridge. Below, you will find the results:
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Records
FBI Response – No Records October 2014 [ 2 Pages, 0.3MB ] – The FBI claims that they have no records pertaining to this incident.
National Security Agency (NSA) Records
NSA Response – Glomar Response November 2014 [ 2 Pages, 0.2MB ] – In a bit of a surprise, the NSA gave GLOMAR response to this request, meaning, they will neither confirm nor deny anything exists. Having so much time pass after this alleged incident, and the fact that it apparently didn’t happen, wouldn’t they just say they had “No Records”?
Office of the DIrector of National Intelligence (ODNI)
ODNI Response – No Records November 2014 [ 2 Pages, 0.3MB ] – The ODNI claims that they have no records pertaining to this incident.
