When U.S. Intelligence Is Not Too Smart

I noticed that the sign proclaiming Taliban Mission to the United Nations was no longer in the window in August 2001. So why didn't the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency believe that something was going to occur? Because the American intelligence agencies are populated by agents, who cannot think out of the box.

What is not known to the vast majority of Americans is that the Taliban operated openly in the United States prior to 9-11. Thousands of American citizens knew about it. Now why would I mention this at the present time?

Several weeks ago I spoke to a retired former employee of the Department of Justice. While we were engaged in conversation I stated that the intelligence services of the United States were incompetent and spent tens of billions of dollars on satellites, drones and computers to obtain foreign sources of intelligence, but that the United States was totally incompetent because the Taliban operated openly on 41st Road in Flushing Queens- prior to 9-11.

This fellow became highly incensed when I told him about the Taliban Mission to the United Nations being located in Flushing, Queens on 41st Road- in plain view of not only the residents of this street, but also of the thousands of Q58 bus riders each day, who took the Q58 bus to its last stop.  The Taliban even had a sign in the window, Taliban Mission to the United Nations. The Taliban was not recognized by the United Nations as the lawful government of Afghanistan- because the United States used its influence to deny the Taliban admission to the United Nations as the lawful government of Afghanistan. The former Justice employee retorted:  “How do you know that it wasn’t the FBI, CIA or some other intelligence agency operating?”

Well here is the reason. If the United States were operating a covert operation posing as the Taliban, it would not advertise so openly. Especially because a call to the Pakistan Mission to the United States asking if the Taliban Mission was in Flushing would settle the matter- because Pakistan was the only government to recognize the Taliban.

Also it would not be located on a block, which proudly displayed in restaurant windows entire roasted pigs hanging from hooks with the head of the pig resting on a plate. There were even cooked pig intestines displayed on a plate. But here is the major reason- the Muslim population in Flushing, Queens is barely negligible. The true center of Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Indonesia, is not in Flushing but in the Jackson Heights-Elmhurst section of Queens. I have met natives of Afghanistan in the local McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts; some wear the full burqua.

Now if the Taliban were seeking to gain converts or desired to live in a neighborhood with other citizens of Afghanistan, they would live in a neighborhood of New York City where their compatriots lived. But there is one other reason why it could not be an American intelligence service. The Taliban were not in their Flushing office in August 2001- one month before the hijacked airplanes hit the World Trade Center. The Taliban knew that something was going to occur soon- so they departed.

Perhaps they did not know exactly what event was going to occur or the exact date.  But the Taliban Mission to the United Nations knew that something bad was going to occur in September 2001 because I noticed that the sign proclaiming Taliban Mission to the United Nations was no longer in the window in August 2001.

So why didn't the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency believe that something was going to occur? Because the American intelligence agencies are populated by agents, who cannot think out of the box.  They could not believe that people would hijack an airplane and fly the plane into a building to declare war on the United States.

The more important question is:  Why didn't the various American intelligence agencies investigate the disappearance of the Taliban Mission to the United Nations? Were the telephones of the Taliban Mission to the United Nations tapped?  If they were tapped, what did the taps reveal? If the telephones were not tapped, why not? After all, the United States knew that Al Qaeda was running training camps in Afghanistan and that Bin Laden was in Afghanistan.

The United States knew that Bin Laden had declared war on the United States and had ordered terrorist acts against the United States. Why didn't the United States take precautions when the Taliban left the United States?
