ASBESTOS ABATEMENT OR DEMOLITION? - LVI Services, a company that provides "total turnkey demolition services," did extensive asbestos abatement work in the World Trade Center prior to 9-11, according to Engineering News-Record. This photo from the LVI Services website depicts LVI workers doing asbestos abatement. Oddly, Burton Fried, then head of LVI, in an interview with the author, denied that his company had done the work in the Twin Towers.
Workers like these would have been needed to apply the explosive coating of nano-thermite to the undersides of the floorpans and other surfaces of the Twin Towers. The workers that prepared the surfaces for demolition would not have known they were applying an explosive coating and were probably told that it was a rust-proofing primer or something of that sort. In such an operation there is deception on every level. Even Burton Fried may have been duped.
The nano-thermitic material found in the dust samples released more energy per gram than any other known explosive used in demolition and detonated at the unusually low temperature of 430 degrees Celsius.
Immediately after 9-11, a leading engineering magazine in the United States reported that LVI Services, a company that does demolition set-up work, had done extensive asbestos abatement work in the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. As I pointed out in my 2009 article "Who Put Super Thermite in the World Trade Center":
Two days after 9-11, Engineering News-Record (ENR) reported that an asbestos abatement and demolition company called LVI had done extensive asbestos abatement work in the World Trade Center:
AMEC Inc., Turner Corp. and Bovis Lend Lease were set to assume "lead roles" in the cleanup effort, says Lee Benish, AMEC vice president. "From the very beginning, we've been deeply involved with the city department of emergency services," he says. "They're sorting through who will be doing what." LVI Services Inc., New York City, which has done extensive asbestos abatement work on the towers in the past, is involved in similar work now as well as other cleanup efforts.
In 2000, LVI did about $3 million in R&D work for the U.S. Army, the largest part of the company's military contract of $3.2 million. Fedspending.org records show that LVI did Applied Research and Exploratory Development (R&D) work for nearly $3 million that year. Neither Burton Fried, then head of LVI, nor the company spokesman were willing to discuss the work LVI had done for the U.S. Army.
In 2011, LVI was taken over and Burton Fried, age 71, was ousted. Fried tried to sue the new management of the company claiming that he had been the victim of age discrimination. The court ruled against Fried and in favor of the new management and this ruling was upheld in an appeal in 2012.
It is interesting to note that LVI Services, a suspect in the 9-11 crime, was taken over by companies that have other 9-11 insiders as directors. Apollo Investment Corp., for example, one of the companies that took over LVI, has Alvin "Buzzy" Krongard on the board of directors of its management company, Apollo Global Management, LLC. Apollo was founded in 1990 by former Drexel Burnham Lambert "banker" Leon David Black and two of his partners from DBL.
On July 31, 2004, Alvin Bernard Krongard married Cheryl Gordon (née Cheryl Gruetzmacher). Cheryl Gordon was, at that time, a senior executive for Apollo Management.
Although I was unable to reach Burton Fried for this article, I did get through to "Buzzy" Krongard, the executive director of the C.I.A. from March 2001 to September 2004. I began by asking Krongard why Apollo had taken over LVI services and ousted Burton Fried. Krongard said that this decision had been made before he joined the board of Apollo, although he could not give the date he had joined the board. He then asked his wife if she remembered the date but they were unable to recall the year. Finally, he simply said he had joined the board when the company went public. It must not have been very long ago because, according to the court documents from October 2011 (Burton T. Fried vs LVI Services, Inc.), Fried worked for LVI until November 30, 2010.
Krongard confirmed that as executive director he had been the "chief operating officer" of the C.I.A. during and after 9-11, and that in that role he had overseen the C.I.A.'s transition to a covert war-fighting agency with the power to launch Hellfire missile strikes from drones. He also said that the C.I.A. is an agency that carries out covert operations for the executive branch and takes its directives from the White House.
THE FOOD CHAIN OF 9-11 INSIDERS
The new president and C.E.O. of LVI services is Scott E. State. State is the former chairman and CEO of MACTEC, Inc., an Atlanta-based engineering, environmental, and construction services firm that was recently taken over by another 9-11 insider, AMEC. AMEC is the British engineering company closely tied to BP (formerly British Petroleum) and N.M. Rothschild & Sons that played a key role in the 9-11 clean-up. AMEC was also the London-based company that had done the construction work on the section of the Pentagon that was destroyed in the 9-11 attack. AMEC, which earned huge amounts of money on both sides of the 9-11 atrocity was headed by Sir Peter Mason, Knight of the British Empire, from 1996 to 2006.
THE ROTHSCHILD CONNECTION TO AMEC
AMEC is closely connected to the Rothschild banking family. During the period that Mason was CEO of AMEC, Jock Green-Armytage, a director and non-executive director of NM Rothschild & Sons Limited, and director of Rothschild's asset management business in the 1990s, became chairman of AMEC. Green-Armytage had served as a non-executive director at AMEC since 1996 and was both chairman of its audit committee and its senior non-executive director when he was appointed chairman in 2004.
Since January 2003, Sir Peter Mason has served the British Empire as a "Senior Independent Director" of BAE Systems, Inc. London-based BAE Systems is one of the largest defense firms in the United States and the world. It might come as a surprise to see that Michael Chertoff, the former U.S. Assistant Attorney General is the Chairman and Secretary of the board of directors of BAE Systems, Inc., the American branch of BAE. Another member of the BAE board is former congressman Lee Hamilton, the vice chairman of the extremely incomplete and flawed 9-11 commission report.
Michael Chertoff, the U.S. government official who oversaw the destruction of crucial evidence from the 9-11 crime scenes, is now chairman of the board of directors of Britain's BAE Systems, Inc., one of the largest defense contractors for the Pentagon.
Lee Hamilton and Anthony Zinni are also on the BAE Systems, Inc. board. What a small world.
Another odd relationship with BAE Systems concerns Webster Tarpley. Tarpley's wife and daughter worked for Gene S. Sachs, the "preferred agent" of BAE Systems North America in 2010 and probably still do. Mr. Sachs had completed more than 275 assignments for BAE in twenty states of the United States between 2005 and 2010. When listening or reading Tarpley's comments on 9-11 or the Middle East one should keep in mind his family connections to BAE Systems. These connections are anything but coincidental.
It is certainly not unusual to see so many key players in the 9-11 false-flag terror atrocity and cover-up belonging to the board of Britain's BAE Systems. It brings to mind the old saying, "Nothing binds people more closely than a crime committed together."
