Warning signs that the U.S. is about to get hit again?

An interesting little item on Northeast Intelligence:

... Quote:
29 August 2007: In the weeks preceding the 2001 attacks on America, there were very significant financial warning signs that something big – and bad – could be about to happen. Huge surges in purchases of “put options” on stocks of United Airlines and American Airlines, the two airlines used in the attacks, and “put options” on Merrill Lynch & Co., and Morgan Stanley, stocks of two financial services companies hurt by the attack were noted. Put options are essentially “bets” that a stock or stock index will drop on or before a certain date; the larger the drop, the bigger the gain for the purchaser of the option.


This is another intersting thing:

Aug. 27, 2007 - Al Qaeda has an active plot to hit the West. The United States knows about it but doesn’t have enough tactical detail to issue a precise warning or raise the threat level, says Vice Admiral (ret.) John Scott Redd, who heads the government’s National Counterterrorism Center. In an interview at his headquarters near Washington, D.C., Redd told Newsweek’s Mark Hosenball and Jeffrey Bartholet that the country is better prepared than ever to counter such threats. But he also believes another successful terror attack on the U.S. homeland is inevitable. Excerpts:

Ok, are we about to get hit again? If this is the case, would it be prudent for the government to say something? Are there any good conspiracy theorists in the house?

Omgosh TC - the second half of your first quote (that isn't posted here) is even more telling than what you posted.

I am trying to wrap my mind around this one.....

Even if this has nothing to do with a terror attack, something is up, something big.

Here's an article I think is trying to discredit the concern over the put/call thing if anyone can make heads or tails out of it.:ws

The same people that placed put options in 2001. The SEC knows but has never made it public. My bet is on CIA Inc.

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) -- Langley Air Force Base will ground its jets next week.

The Air Force says the service's Air Combat Command has ordered all jet fighters and bombers to remain grounded so airmen can review safety procedures and protocol.

Langley is home to three fighter squadrons, which fly the F-15 Eagle and F-22A Raptor..............


Let's open the window.

I dont know why people get their panties in a bunch when some morons buy put options. Making money off options is really very little and difficult thing to do. Especially in a directional trade. If they really had the big jock strap, they'd go for futures and take short positions where they can make a windfall if they do tank.
