Tarpley maintains that the September 11 attacks were engineered by a rogue network of the military industrial complex and intelligence agencies. His writings and speeches describe a model of false flag terror operations by a rogue network in the military/intelligence sector working with moles in the private sector and in corporate media, and locates such contemporary false flag operations in a historical context.
"On September 11, 2001 [Paul Bremer] had been working as managing director and "senior political advisor" at the insurance giant Marsh & McLennan. The company had its offices in the North Tower of the World Trade Center and was devastated by the attacks. In the first few days, 700 of its workers were unaccounted for; in the end 295 were confirmed dead. Exactly one month later, on October 11, 2001, Paul launched Crisis Consulting Practice, a new division of Marsh specializing in helping multinational corporations prepare for possible terrorist attacks and other crises. Advertising his experience as ambassador-at-large for counterterrorism under the Reagan administration, Bremer and his company offered clients comprehensive counterterrorism services, from political risk insurance to public relations and even advice on what to stockpile."--"Noelle Knox, "Companies Rush to Account for Staff," USA Today, September 13, 2001; Harlan S. Byrne, "Disaster Relief: Insurance Brokers AON, Marsh Look to Recover, Even Benefit Post-September 11," Barron's November 19, 2001.
"After Paul Bremer replaced General Jay Garner as the top U.S. envoy, Bremer spent his first four months in Iraq almost exclusively focused on economic transformation, passing a series of laws that together make up a classic Chicago School shock therapy program. Before the invasion, Iraq's economy had been anchored by its national oil company and by two hundred state-owned companies, which produced the staples of the Iraqi diet and the raw materials of its industry everything from cement to paper to cooking oil. The month after he arrived in his new job, Bremer announced that the 200 firms were going to be privatized immediately. "Getting inefficient state enterprises into private hands," Bremer said, "is essential for Iraq's economic recovery."
"The most widely recognized case of blowback was provoked by Bremer's first major act, the firing of approximately 500,000 state workers, most of them soldiers, but also doctors, nurses, teachers, and engineers. 'De-Baathification,' as it was called, was supposedly driven by a desire to clean out the government of Saddam loyalists. No doubt that was part of the motivation, but it does not explain the scale of the layoffs or how deeply they savaged the [Iraq] public sector as a whole, punishing workers who were not high-level officials." --Naomi Kline, The Shock Doctrine, page 444.
