"The 9/11 attacks were a global state terror operation permitted by the administration of the USA, which had foreknowledge of the operation yet remained intentionally unresponsive in order to make war against Afghanistan and Iraq," Imposimato declared in a letter published on Sunday by the Journal of 9/11 Studies
As a former state prosecutor, Imposimato has extensive experience investigating high-profile crimes, including the kidnapping and assassination of Italian Prime Minster Aldo Moro
and the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II. He also worked on the Anti-Mafia commission as a Senator, giving him a wealth of knowledge on the inner workings of organized crime syndicates.
"Italy too was a victim of the 'strategia della tensione' (strategy of tension) of the CIA, enacted in Italy from the time of the Portella della Ginestra massacre in Sicily in 1947 until 1993," he wrote, recounting the decades of clandestine violence carried out by Western intelligence agencies in the Mediterranean. These terror attacks
, conducted under the codename "Gladio", were condemned by the European Parliament
in 1990, but a criminal investigation has yet to be initiated.
Imposimato pointed to a number of facts that contradict the official 9/11 story, including the free-fall collapse of WTC Building 7
, the report that the CIA met with Osama Bin Laden
in a Dubai hospital in July 2001, and the overwhelming evidence of insider trading
before 9/11 that never led to criminal charges.
In addition, Imposimato made a stunning revelation. "I have collected in Italy evidence that the Iraq War was decided on by the U.S. Government before the 9/11 attacks with the help of the Italian Secret Service," he wrote.
"The only possibility for achieving justice is to submit the best evidence concerning the involvement of specific individuals in 9/11 to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and ask him to investigate," Imposimato concluded.
Will the families of the ten Italian citizens
and thousands of other victims who were killed in the 9/11 attacks ever find justice? If the tragic events were assisted by criminal elements of the U.S. Government, as Imposimato alleges, then the perpetrators may still be on the loose -- and the "strategy of tension" may be far from over.
