Who Killed John O'Neil?

Ok, so this is really long... and really worth it if you have the time to pay attention. Once your into it you could safely listen while you delete spam or something. It's an extremely comprehensive account of what IS and what IS NOT known about September 11th 2001. ~ go large

John O'Neil started his new job as Head of Security at the World Trade Center on 9-11-01 His body was indentified by his employer Kroll Associates. TWO WEEKS, prior to the attack, O'Neill had left his job with the FBI. O'Neill had quit because he believed that the Bush administration had stymied the intelligence agency's investigations on terrorism. O'Neill charged that it had done so even as it bargained with the Taliban on handing over of Osama bin Laden in exchange for political recognition and economic aid. In the ultimate irony, O'Neill had gone public with these charges at the same time that he was leaving the FBI to become the head of security at the World Trade Center.

Mr. Bratton will work closely with Jerome M.

His unparalleled experience will give Kroll a singular competitive advantage in providing best-in-class services around the world. Bill's reforms and crime reduction in the five police departments that he headed - most notably in Boston and New York City, and his now famous Compstat police management system are emblematic of what Kroll will begin to offer worldwide.

"Kroll and its clients are fortunate to have a singular collection of the very best and most talented individuals in the security services arena. This is an outstanding opportunity for our two firms to combine our respective expertise in order to greatly expand the service offerings to the government and public safety sector. We look forward to working with the entire Kroll team, and in particular, Jerry Hauer."
