Is another 9/11 set to unfold?

Is another 9/11 set to unfold?

Earlier this year, quite by happenstance, I read a book written by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter James B. Stewart.

“Heart of a Soldier” tells the story of two men who, well before it happened, foretold not only of the terrorist attack of 9/11 but also the 1993 bombing in the World Trade Center parking garage that preceded it.

One of the men, Rick Rescorla, was chief of security for Morgan Stanley with an office in the World Trade Center. He died on 9/11, but not before he shepherded all but six of Morgan Stanley’s 2,700 employees to safety because of a well-prepared and well-executed evacuation plan. He’d have made it out, too, had he not gone back in the building looking for those six.

The other man, Daniel J. Hill, is still alive.

With another Sept. 11 approaching I wanted to talk to The Man Who Predicted 9/11.

Although the primary focus in Stewart’s book is on Rescorla — a bona fide hero for his actions on 9/11 — I found Hill to be an even more fascinating character.

It was Hill who converted to Islam as a young U.S. Army paratrooper stationed in Beirut in 1958. It was Hill who learned fluent Arabic. It was Hill who joined the Mujahedeen Freedom Fighters in Afghanistan and fought the Soviet invasion there in the 1980s. It was Hill who personally met Osama bin Laden. It was Hill who used information from Islamic extremists to warn Rescorla that terrorists would use the underground parking garage for a car bomb attack on the World Trade Center. It was Hill who asked the U.S. government to assist him in an assassination attempt on bin Laden in 1998 (the request was rejected). And it was Hill who warned the FBI just weeks before Sept. 11, 2001, that his Mideast contacts told him “something big” was about to happen in the United States, in New York, Washington, D.C., or Philadelphia — maybe all three.

Through the Internet I managed to contact Hill at his home in Florida. He’s 71 now. I asked him if his reputation as a terrorism prognosticator without parallel has changed his life much.

“Oh, that blew over pretty fast,” he said. “Most of the people even in my hometown don’t know any of that stuff.”

He didn’t want to talk about the past. He wanted to talk about the future.

The very near future.

The man who predicted 9/11 is worried that its sequel is imminent.

“Muslims that I talk to say things like, ‘America thinks they’re safe now. They’ve forgotten about 9/11. But watch, Daniel. Stay near your TV. It’s going to be bigger than 9/11,’ ” he said.

Hill said the next terrorist attack will involve suitcase nuclear bombs that will be detonated in small, low-flying two-seater private airplanes manned by men hanging onto the belief that, like the 9/11 hijackers, they are about to die as martyrs and enter paradise.

He is not alone in suggesting such a scenario. A 2007 book, “The Day of Islam,” spells out the details, as do any number of Internet sites about a plot called “American Hiroshima.”

The nukes, he said, will be detonated over New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Miami, Houston, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

I asked Hill, “Why now?”

“Eight years from 1993 to 2001, eight years from that 9/11 to this 9/11,” he said. “Symbolism. They’re big on symbolism.”

“Ramadan started two weeks ago Saturday,” he said, referring to the Muslim holy month of fasting. “It always hits around Ramadan.”

Eight years ago, Hill predicted the attack would come on Oct. 16 — almost in the middle of that year’s Ramadan (the timing of Ramadan varies from year to year). He was about a month off.

“I don’t know the second, hour or day. I just know they have the means, will, motivation and desire to do it,” he said, noting that it’s believed that years ago the suitcase nukes, acquired from former USSR operatives, were smuggled into America across the Mexican border.

Hill said he has warned the FBI, the CIA and others in government. For the past two years, he’s sent out proposals for a book on the subject. All he’s gotten back are rejections.

“To most people, I am a deviant personality,” he said.

But there’s no arguing his credentials.

“I’m a Muslim,” he says. “I’m a special ops expert, I’m a terrorist and I’ve lived among Muslims. I fought the Russians with the same guys we’re now fighting in Afghanistan. I met Osama. I volunteered to assassinate him. I know (the enemy) so well because I’ve worked, slept and prayed alongside them for years. I’ve become one of them. I know their nature, I know their culture, I know how they think. I can quote the Koran like a Southern Baptist minister can quote the New Testament. I know these are people who do not tire, who do not quit. There are odds this won’t happen, but they aren’t big odds.”

“I hope you’re wrong,” I told him.

“Yeah. I hope so, too,” he said.

    That’s a fascinating possibility Watcher,

    Such a wide spread event could bring to an end our present government and put us under the military depending on the timing of the attack in Washington DC. But because it would be so wide spread and so devestating I personally don’t see it happening quite yet.

    I think that the powers that be have things pretty well mapped out for the near future with such things as a financial collapse, a new currency and a flu pandemic that will bring about the next stage of control over the masses.

    I see that kind of wide spead destruction described in this article and mass deaths occuring after the servants return, after they’ve warned the people and about the time we flee Babylon. Such an event would support us in our exodus.

  2. I agree Malachi

    Mrs Watcher and i were just talking about that.

    If such an event would be that devastating, then it will not happen until after the servants return to warn the people.

    However something with less of an impact could happen.

    something greater than what happened with the twin towers but not great enough to cause the fall of Babylon could happen.

    The exciting thing to me is that if we are quickly approaching the time when the secret combination is planning on doing something astronomical, then that is a sign that the servants must be here are very close to returning so that they can give the voice of warning.

    Section 84 reminds us that it is the servants that warn the inhabitants of New York and Boston before the desolation of abomination is triggered.

    Furthermore, it reminds us that it is the Lords servants and not the secret combination that rend the kingdoms of the world,

    114 Nevertheless, let the bishop go unto the city of New York, also to the city of Albany, and also to the city of Boston, and warn the people of those cities with the sound of the gospel, with a loud voice, of the desolation and utter bolishment which await them if they do reject these things.

    115 For if they do reject these things the hour of their judgment is nigh, and their house shall be left unto them desolate.

    116 Let him trust in me and he shall not be confounded; and a chair of his head shall not fall to the ground unnoticed.

    117 And verily I say unto you, the rest of my servants, go ye forth as your circumstances shall permit, in your several callings, unto the great and notable cities and villages, reproving the world in righteousness of all their unrighteous and ungodly deeds, setting forth clearly and understandingly the desolation of abomination in the last days.

    118 For, with you saith the Lord Almighty, I will rend their kingdoms; I will not only shake the earth, but the starry heavens shall tremble.

  3. Malachi says:

    How do you see the servants bringing Babylon down?
    Like Elijah calling fire down from Heaven?
    Do you see the servants bringing it down physically?
    Or is their job to seal up the wicked to their fate(D&C 1:8)and the wicked bring down the wicked (Rev 17 & 18)?

  4. I am frankly clueless

    the following verse sounds to me like the good old fashioned power to control the elements like Elijah had is going to be used… pretty powerful stuff if it involves shaking the earth and heavens…

    Or perhaps the verse could be interpreted to mean that first he will use the servants to rend their kingdoms and then God will shake the earth and the heavens..

    “For, with you saith the Lord Almighty, I will rend their kingdoms; I will not only shake the earth, but the starry heavens shall tremble”

    another possible TYPE is john the baptist who very methodically began the process

    He was ordained “to overthrow the kingdom of the Jews, and to make straight the way of the Lord before the face of his people, to prepare them for the coming of the Lord, in whose hand is given all power.”

  5. NEPT says:

    I have always been enamored with the following verse; perhaps it is relevant to this discussion:

    Wherefore, he will preserve the righteous by his power, even if it so be that the fulness of his wrath must come, and the righteous be preserved, even unto the destruction of their enemies by fire. Wherefore, the righteous need not fear; for thus saith the prophet, they shall be saved, even if it so be as by fire (1 Nephi 22:17).

  6. Malachi says:

    I think the fall of Babylon is actually a part of the warning process. I don’t think that we have created a Zion yet. We flee Babylon at the threat of it’s fall. It’s fall is a motivation for us see who will actually have the faith necessary to heed the warnings, go to the land of Zion to become a blessed sanctified people

    Hi Nept: I have liked that verse for a long time also.

    I think 1 Ne 22:11-16 sets the stage and tells us that Zion is established but hasn’t become terrible to the nations yet (as described in D&C 45:66-71). This is Zions great test when a great army comes into America (as described in Joel 1&2) and in the process of cleansing the wicked from off the face of the promised land they want to utterly destroy Zion.

    I got to go to work and I really haven’t had time to re-read these thoughts, hope they make sense.

  7. As far as the possibility of something major happening this year, and pretty soon, the following two posts may be of interest

    “Rumor: Between Rosh Hashana and Sukkot

    A thoughtful person notified me that there is a rumor that “something big” will happen between Rosh Hashana and Sukkot.

    Research revealed that Rabbi Shimon Dahan, known as “the Rabbi who foresaw the Tsunami”, is saying that he has been informed from Above that there will be an atomic blast during that span of time. Something which will unify the hearts of Israel and cause Mashiach to come.

    Quite a juicy statement!

    And my sources tell me it might even be bigger than that.”

    “Breaking! Russian source reports Netanyahu ready to attack Iran…..secret meeting with Russia was to let them know.” Russian media on Thursday continued to cover Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s mysterious visit to Moscow, that was leaked to the media from his office.

    Kommersant newspaper quoted “experts” as saying they believe a visit of this kind could have stemmed from urgent circumstances, “for example, in the event that Israel plans to attack Iran”.,7340,L-3775025,00.html
