Maurice Strong - Canadian billionaire also involved in Canada's Liberal Party scandals and BNP Paribus.In a nutshell, Maurice Strong's Buttonwood Global Custodians’ offices on the 79th floor of the WTC were missed by the plane which hit the 89th floor and killed all the Cantor Fitzgerald employees on the 101st floor and higher, except for the lucky six. BNP Paribus almost had a lock on carbon e-trading and only had one competitor, Cantor Fitzgerald, which was suddenly wiped out, except for the lucky six.
The "mob", represented by Christopher Bruno, 34, of Bethpage, L.I., caught on an FBI tape claiming to be "...the Osama bin Laden of gambling."
BNP Paribus, the French bank involved in the Oil for Food scandal.
6 Cantor Fitzgerald carbon credit traders who were on an annual fishing trip on 9/11 and escaped death, except that the trip was canceled at the last second due to "bad weather" which allowed them to race back to...New Jersey. One of the Cantor traders is the brother of mobster Bruno.
4 sons of Harry Reid, minority leader of the U.S. Senate.
Saddam Hussein, imprisoned and awaiting trial.
Daiwa bank, kicked out of the US for fraud.
Enron, banrupt company that did I don't know what, exactly.
Many other players.
Strong wanted his Buttonwood Global Custodians / BNP Paribus to be the only player. Now it suddenly was.
The lucky 6, led by Joseph Noviello, just happened to have an office set up in Rochelle Park, N.J., "where we had duplicates of everything that was destroyed at our offices in the world Trade Center." Within 2 days, they were up and running again.
Cantor Fitzgerald has a subsidiary in the UK called Cantor Index Limited, a licensed bookmaker that takes bets on things like the winner of the U.S. presidential election which might be affected by terrorist attacks.
Four years after 9/11, Cantor Fitzgerald seems to have "morphed" into Maurice Strong's "Global Hub for Carbon Commerce".
Of 36 people arrested in a series of gambling raids in New York, 6 were Cantor executives.
What the article would have us believe is that the attack on the WTC was a successful effort to take control of world-wide carbon trading and wireless gambling. Uh huh.
Read it, it's a hoot.
