I have contacted your office on February 7, 2007 to inform you of a crime related to one committed in Manhattan. I was greeted by the typical cynicism expected from a DA’s office but what was appalling is the fact that the person on the other side of the line identified himself as Mo Greenberg and today I learn that no such name exists at your office.

The crime took place in New York on September 11, 2001; the attacks on the World Trade Center. There is no need to name the victims individually; there were close of 3,000 deaths not to mention the other loses.

The criminal believed to be behind the crime, even though not indicted by the State of New York or the Federal Government, is Osama Bin Laden and his Al-Qaida organization.

As a consequence, the Federal government launched military actions against Afghanistan since their rulers, the Taleban, harbored a criminal. The Taleban, by harboring Bin Laden, were determined to have aided and abetted the criminal.

During those military actions in Afghanistan, more New Yorkers, who either are members of the permanent military or the National Guard, lost their lives in Afghanistan; they could also be considered victims of the crime I am reporting.

The crime from a Federal perspective falls somewhere between dereliction of duty and high treason, from a New York law perspective, the crime of aiding and abetting a felon took place.

Alas the Federal government, who I contacted and has knowledge of the crime, is dragging its feet and there is evidence that it is even shielding the perpetrators.

I am contacting you because the original crime took place in Manhattan, and the victims are mostly Manhattan residents, thereby giving you jurisdiction, and through your elected office and the people’s trust, giving you the obligation to investigate and prosecute.

After close to a year of research, I can say with a high degree of accuracy that the Bush administration was the closest to apprehending Bin Laden on or around September 26, 2001, two weeks after 9/11 and ten days prior to military actions against Afghanistan.

On September 21, 2003, the Bush administration launched a sting operation, with the help of Saudi intelligence, which was originally designed to capture Bin Laden; after 9/11 the operation evolved into two parts.

The first part was to tape him confessing to his guilt.

The second part was to capture him.

The first part was successfully executed on September 26, 2001. The result was the grainy videotape of Bin Laden confessing at a dinner meeting to Khaled Al-Harbi and providing proof of detailed prior knowledge. My work is the closest to an authentication of that tape put forth in the public domain.

The Bush administration had 4 days advance knowledge of the date of the meeting, 24 hours advance knowledge of the location of the meeting, and knew that Bin Laden would be in that village for at least 3 hours if not overnight since his family lived in that village too.

Intelligence operatives were in the same room as Bin Laden for 3 hours on September 26, 2001 and chose only to tape him. The obvious explanation is, if they had captured him or killed him, the Bush administration could not have launched military actions against Afghanistan ten days later.

The analysis of the tape shows that an intelligence operative was left behind in that village to alert the special forces of when Bin Laden returned to visit with his family. It is then that the second part of the sting operation would be implemented; his capture.

Bin Laden returned the evening of November 2, 2001. The weather was freezing rain. Despite the inclement weather, two Special Forces helicopters were dispatched, a predator prototype (the most sophisticated at the time in the Air Force arsenal, specifically designed to operate in bad weather), and F-14 jets circulated overhead.

Due to the bad weather, the airspace shrunk and brought the aircrafts too close to each other, while the helicopter is equipped with a collision avoidance system, the Predator drone is not. The drone collided with one of the helicopters and they both crashed.

The second helicopter rescue the crew of the first and an F-14 destroyed the crashed helicopter shortly after.

The capture mission failed.

Bin Laden is still free because of the premeditated decision to tape him instead of capturing when the Bush Administration had its best chances.

But that is not the end of it; there is another incident that qualifies as premeditated aiding and abetting.

Since Bin Laden is still free, the videotape resulting from the first part of the sting operation can be described as a sensitive by-product of a failed intelligence operation that was designed, in its totality, to capture him.

Buckling under pressure from the Muslim and Arab streets for proof that Bin Laden is responsible for 9/11, the Bush administration released the only evidence it had of his guilt. The White House and the Pentagon tell us that there was ample deliberation, indicating a premeditated act, of the consequences of its release; the videotape was released on December 13, 2001.

The one major consequence they don’t want anyone to know about is how Bin Laden would react when viewing the tape. Inevitably, Bin Laden was to see that tape and he would quickly realize that it was taped covertly. He would realize how close intelligence operatives were to him; basically they could have captured him.

The only time Bin Laden took exception to his own security rules in meeting visitors – he went to this visitor in accommodation to the visitor’s handicap (paraplegic) while other visitors were always brought to him under a strict security protocol – he gets taped covertly confessing by intelligence operatives.

The very serious consequence of releasing the tape is that security around Bin Laden will get even tighter and no one would ever get close to Bin Laden again regardless of how honest the effort is by this administration or any future one.

The most wanted man in America for a crime committed in New York is still free as a result of deliberate and premeditated acts by the Bush administration and the second of which insured that he would never be caught.

After reading the above, and the articles referenced below, you might still say that this is a Federal crime and thereby outside your jurisdiction. There might be ground for that argument if it were not for the fact that the entity that is to prosecute the criminal is the entity suspected in aiding and abetting him.

You might also say that the material I used is classified; it is not. All the material is public domain.

I have shared my research material with Patrick Fitzgerald and I know that it ended up in a sealed investigative file at the DoJ. A Freedom of Information Act to the FBI revealed that all material relating to the videotape is in such file and could not be released.

If such an investigation were launched the day the tape aired on December 13, 2001, such an investigation, if serious, would have concluded by now.

This is a very serious matter upon which any law abiding citizen should act. I have done my share and the work referenced below is almost a roadmap for a special prosecutor to follow. I don’t think more can be expected from a private citizen.

The laws of the State of NY gives you the jurisdiction if the will is there; those who voted you in office expect you to.

Please feel free to contact me to answer any questions you may have and for any assistance you might need.
