There remain many unanswered questions about 911, and a new report has surfaced suggesting that Osama bin Laden and his number 2 Al Qaeda commander Ayman al-Zawahiri worked with secret NATO forces for 3 months after 911 to sow discord and upheaval in the Caucasus. The claim is being made by Sibil Edmonds, who Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg has claimed has "information far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers."

On the Lew Rockwell radio program, Edmonds claimed, "For the past 11 years I have been emphasizing that my State Secrets Privilege & Gag Orders had to do with the FBI files (covering period 1996-2002 February) on covert-terrorist operations in Caucasus and Central Asia backed, managed and armed by US actors. These US-NATO directed operations in the region involved Bin-Laden and mainly Zawahiri."

Osama bin Laden was an anti-Soviet guerrilla fighter in Afghanistan in the 1990s and worked extensively with NATO and US intelligence agencies during that period.  However, it would be extraordinary if he continued to be used even as it developed that he and Zawahiri were the 911 masterminds.

There exists a preponderance of evidence that the 911 story is incomplete, and that what happened on that day may have involved culpable negligence on the part of US officials and agencies, and even direct support for the planning and runup to the attack.

9/11 Commission co-chair Lee Hamilton has said, "I don’t believe for a minute that we got everything right,’ and that the commission was designed to fail in its mission.
