Subject: Theos-World "Seeds of Fire", a new book.
Gordon Thomas since recently has a book out where he claims that
Beijing had an actual role in the Sept. 11 attack on America.
In "Seeds of Fire," Thomas purports to show how Beijing is
positioning itself to become America's "new major enemy."
Thomas points out that on Sept. 11, a transport plane from
landed in Kabul. A Chinese delegation had gone to Afghanistan to
a deal with the Taliban - reportedly brokered by Osama bin
Laden - to
provide the Afghans with missile-tracking technology,
art communications and air-defense systems. In return, says
the Taliban would order Muslim separatists in northwest China to
In a Sept. 13 report, the Washington Post confirmed that Beijing
just signed a deal with the Taliban to provide Afghanistan "with
needed infrastructure and economic development assistance."
Due to the fall of the Taliban at the hands of opposition forces
the United States, however, "the goods were never delivered,"
tells in this new book.
The delegation, says Thomas, included senior officers of the
Liberation Army and the Bureau of State Security, as well as
from two of China's leading defense contractors.
In his book, Thomas contends that hours after the plane landed in
Kabul, CIA Director George Tenet received a coded "red alert"
from Israeli Mossad agents that presented a "worst case
that China would use a surrogate, bin Laden, to attack the United
Thomas also claims that the head of Pakistan's intelligence
was in Washington to meet with Tenet on Sept. 11, and that he
Tenet that day on the links between bin Laden and China.
The intelligence agent "told that China had made a decisive
decision," wrote Thomas. "It was prepared to infuriate America
its allies in supporting bin Laden and the Taliban because
Afghanistan fitted into China's own long-term strategic plans."
Saying that bin Laden has traveled to China numerous times to
with officials there, Thomas contends that "almost certainly he
talked to them about obtaining" material to build weapons of mass
China's President Jiang Zemin, adds Thomas, waited three days to
contact Bush about the Sept. 11 attack and told the U.S.
that, vis-à-vis the war on terrorism, China would find itself in
a "difficult situation, given our well-known position of opposing
interference in the internal affairs of any country."
Washington sources say that Bush "gritted his teeth and said he
push on without China," Thomas writes.
On the lighter side, Chinese filmdirector Long Zanxu just offered
Jenna Bush the part of heroine Nancy Lee in a 100-million-yuan
million-dollar) production called "Hero Defending Country", no
PS o yes, and there is one book I can heartely recommend to
David Sereda's , "Face to Face With Jesus Christ".
