In one of the seemingly hundreds of amazing "coincidences" circling the events of Sept. 11, 2001, America's top expert on Osama bin Laden was killed on his second day of the job -- as head of security at the World Trade Center. His name was John O'Neill.
Only two weeks before, Mr. O'Neill had quit his job as deputy director at the FBI. He was reportedly disgusted with the Bush administration blocking his investigations of bin Laden. He actually went public with this information -- he told french authors Charles Brisard and Guillaume Dasquie (who wrote the book Forbidden Truth) "The main obstacles to investigate Islamic terrorism were US oil corporate interests, and the role played by Saudi Arabia in it."
So, who hired O'Neill to head security at the twin towers? A guy named Jerome Hauer -- the Managing Director of Kroll Associates. I'll tell you something else about Mr. Hauer. He was also a national security advisor with the National Institute of Health, and on Sept. 11, 2001 he advised the White House to take Cipro, a drug that fights anthrax.
Just who has ties to Kroll Associates and Jerome Hauer? To find out, I highly recommend the docudrama "Who killed John O'Neill?" If you can get past the painfully self-indulgent first 15 minutes or so, the facts start coming fast and furious and what began as a bad art film morphs into one of the best "follow the money" investigations of what really happened on Sept. 11, 2001. You'll want your notebook with you because the writer names names and he's done his homework.
