Adnan Khashoggi Linked to 9/11 Terrorists, Part 36:
Who Mentored Michael Hayden?

By Alex Constantine

The planning for September 11, 2001 was as meticulous
as any covert action planned by the US
military/intelligence corps. Every participant had an
assigned role - most roles were minor and sheltered by
"need to know" - and there were many participants. But
pinning down lead personnel, many of them Iran-contra
holdovers (backgrounds, actions on that day,
subsequent statements and lies and interaction with
other operatives) simplifies the process of
understanding why the Trade Center towers fell. 

The war games and terror drills planned for that
morning are considered integral to the actual covert
operation by most 9/11 skeptics, so this is is a
likely place to start putting holes in the strategic
defense shield of diversions and cover stories that
protect the true terrorists. 

On August 21, 2002, AP reported (and the truth
movement bit), "in what the government describes as a
bizarre coincidence, one U.S. intelligence agency was
planning an exercise last Sept. 11 in which an errant
aircraft would crash into one of its buildings....
Adding to the coincidence, American Airlines Flight 77
- the Boeing 767 that was hijacked and crashed into
the Pentagon - took off from Dulles at 8:10 a.m. on
Sept. 11, 50 minutes before the exercise was to

The exercise was organized by John Fulton at the NRO,
a DoD-CIA adjunct. Fulton's resumé states that he has
some 25 years in the intelligence community. He is a
former mission director for "our nation's satellite
imagery program," as well as director "of the National
Security Space Master Plan for the U.S. Department of
Defense and Intelligence Space Communities under the
auspices of the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense
(Space)." In the commercial sector, Fulton holds a
variety of patents related to "smart GPS." He is
currently chief of the Strategic War Gaming Division
of the NRO, "a member of U.S. Joint Forces Command's
Project Alpha - a prestigious 'think tank' for
advanced concepts related to such issues as homeland

Has any federal agency in existence ever prepared for
an airplane accidently crashing into it? Edward Jay
Epstein found that this exercise "begs the question
why the NRO, which is concerned with real-time
intelligence from satellites at a time of a national
emergency, would be concerned with an unintentional
rather than intentional crash. The real issue is what
intelligence, or risk assessment data, caused the CIA
and NRO to conduct this simulation."3 

At 9:00 am yet, coincident with the devastation in

The odds of an airplane falling on the NRO building
accidently were fairly infinitesimal, so the drill was
indeed a "bizarre" coincidence. It's doubtful that
Fulton, a risk assessment specialist, would bother
with this highly improbable "exercise" ... unless
directed to do so ... 

NRO spokesman Art Haubold said: "Agency chiefs came up
with the scenario...."

Back to Peter Teets. Highlights from his biography,
posted at the NRO site: "Peter B. Teets is the retired
President and Chief Operating Officer of Lockheed
Martin Corporation .... He is Under Secretary of the
Air Force ... As National Reconnaissance Office
Director, he is responsible for the acquisition and
operation of all United States space-based
reconnaissance and intelligence systems. ... Mr. Teets
began his career with Martin Marietta, Denver,
Colorado, in 1963... In 1970, he began managing the
inertial guidance system to the Titan IIIC launch
vehicle until 1975, when he became Program Manager for
the company's Transtage Project and Director of Space
Systems. Five years later, Mr. Teets became Vice
President of Business Development for Martin Marietta
Denver Aerospace... Following two years in these
positions, Mr. Teets became President of Martin
Marietta Denver Aerospace, and in 1993, President of
the company's Space Group. After the Lockheed Martin
merger in 1995 and until 1997, Mr. Teets served as
President and Chief Operating Officer in the
Information and Services Sector...."4

Peter Teets reported "directly to the Secretary of
Defense and the Director of Central Intelligence."
Donald Rumsfeld, George Tenet. 

Who else is a "chief?" The deputy director of the NRO
at the time was Dennis D. Fitzgerald: "Mr. Dennis
Fitzgerald was appointed Deputy Director of the
National Reconnaissance Office on 10 August 2001" -
that is, appointed by George Tenet. One month before
the airstikes. Agent in place. Mr. Fitzgerald is also
the deputy assistant to the secretary of the Air Force
Intelligence Space Technology division, and "director
of "the Office of Development and Engineering (OD&E),
Directorate of Science and Technology (DS&T), Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA)." CIA ... DS&T ... Dr. Ruth
David's old bucket shop ...  He received four master's
degrees from John Hopkins University. 

"In January 1974, Mr. Fitzgerald joined the CIA and
has subsequently spent the majority of his career in
DS&T/OD&E with duty in the National Reconnaissance
Office (NRO)."5 

George Tenet appointed these NRO officials, and they
reported to him directly. Tenet's fingerprints are all
over 9/11. He is on intimate terms with many of the
ranking perpetrators:

• Washington Post columnist Vernon Loeb reported on
October 7, 1999 that the year before, DCI George Tenet
"brought in Wall Street heavyweight A.B. 'Buzzy'
Krongard to serve as his 'counselor'.... The man who
helped underwrite Microsoft and AOL as head of Alex
Brown & Co." was "helping Tenet & Co. start up a CIA
venture capital firm called In-Q-It [the nascent
In-Q-Tel] that's supposed to keep the agency abreast
of computer technology..."6 In December 1998,
according to USA Today, "CIA Director George Tenet and
his executive director, Buzzy Krongard, called on
[Norman] Augustine, the respected builder of Lockheed
Martin," to assist in the start-up of In-Q-Tel.7

• General Mahmoud Ahmad, the 9/11 black bag man, was
in the U.S. when the attacks occurred. He arrived on
official business on September 4, 2001 for
consultation with George Tenet.8  9/11 scholar Michel
Chossudovsky: "Everything indicates that CIA Director
George Tenet and ISI Chief General Mahmoud Ahmad, had
established a close working relationship. General
Mahmoud had arrived a week prior to September 11 for
consultations with George Tenet. Bear in mind that the
CIA's George Tenet, also has a close personal
relationship with President Bush. Prior to September
11, Tenet would meet the President nearly every
morning at 8:00 a.m. sharp, for about half an hour."9
(Incidentally but significantly, Mahmoud Ahmad, as the
September 10, 2001 Pakistani newspaper reported, held
his “most important meeting” with Marc Grossman, US
Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs. Marc
Grossman is an executive vice president of the Cohen
Group, named after former Secretary of Defense William
Cohen, CEO - in 1987, Cohen sat on the bipartisan
Senate select committee that investigated the
Iran-contra arms-fund transfers, and signed signed off
on the majority report. Also at the Cohen Group, count
senior counselor Paul J. Kern, former Commanding
General, Army Materiel Command (AMC); James M. Loy,
Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security (2003-2005);
Joseph W. Ralston, former Commander, U.S. European
Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, NATO;
Harry D. Raduege, Jr., Director, Defense Information
Systems Agency (2000-2005), Commander, Joint Task
Force – Global Network Operations (2004-2005); James
M. Bodner, Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense
for Policy (1998-2001)l George Robertson, Secretary
General, NATO (1999-2003), Minister of Defense, UK
(1997-1999), Member, House of Commons, UK

• After Bush announced his decision to place Michael
Hayden in the DCI slot in May 2006, the outgoing NSA
director told reporters: "When I returned from Korea
in 1999 to take the position at NSA, I was befriended
most of all by two people - George Tenet, who was then
DCI, and Porter Goss, then Chairman of the House
Intelligence Committee. Both of these men befriended
me and mentored me and supported me."10 Hear that?
Tenet was Hayden's mentor.

• Reporter Wayne Madsen reported on May 25, 2006 that
a "confidential 'France Only' report of the French
intelligence service, Direction Generale de la
Securite Exterieure, [stated] that the CIA and
Britain’s MI-6 maintained effective control of an
important Al Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan as
late as 1995, fully two years after the 1993 bombing
of the World Trade Center." Tenet was deputy director
of the CIA at the time. "The CIA and MI-6 permitted
control of training operations at Darunta, an 'Arab
Afghan' base located near the camp of Osama Bin Laden
and used to manufacture explosives and chemical
weapons and train in their use, to pass to the control
of Ibn Cheikh, a Libyan leader of Al Qaeda."11 "Osama
bin Laden and his global network of lieutenants and
associates remain the most immediate and serious
threat." - George Tenet, June 2001 12

• Bush and Tenet sent SAIC's David Kay to Iraq for the
futile secret mass death cachés.
