Headlines of interest, early to mid September 2015…

Wayne Madsen ReportSeptember 11-14, 2015 — SPECIAL 9/11 REPORT ON STOCK PUT OPTIONS

In 2009, I sent a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the SEC asking for all relevant materials concerning a footnote in the 9/11 Commission report. Specifically, I told the SEC, I wanted to know if the newsletter cited in the report as being the ostensible cause behind the placement of put options on airliners might have any connection to Baltimore. Several months later, I got a letter back stating that all relevant records had been destroyed. I had waited eight years to make my request, because it had been announced that such 9/11 records were to be sealed for that amount of time. Now the SEC was alleging that the records, important enough to seal for eight years, were destroyed.

This year, some of the facts I was seeking have come to light. Documents have surfaced through other FOIA attempts that confirmed my suspicion that the newsletter company that published the seemingly well-timed advice to short airline stocks was indeed Agora Publishing, headquartered in the Mount Vernon section of Baltimore.

It has been asserted numerous times, but never definitively confirmed, that the infamous airline put options were primarily placed through Alex Brown & Sons in Baltimore, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bank. On 9/11, a former chairman of Alex Brown, A. B. Krongard, was the sitting executive director of the CIA. Krongard was well-known around Baltimore to have a handful of close proteges who had thrived under his tutelage. One, Mayo Shattuck III, was CEO of Alex Brown on 9/11 and was suddenly not its CEO a few days later, having unexpectedly resigned on 9/12/01 or perhaps 9/13. Another, Carter Beese Jr., was a venture capitalist who went to work as a commissioner at the SEC and had also served as president of Riggs Capital Partners. Beese was found hanging by a dog leash in a kitchen of a bungalow along Pacific Coast Highway in California in April 2007. The third, Gregory Barnhill, a career investment banker, also allegedly committed suicide in September of 2012. Barnhill was a founding partner of Agora Publishing and was listed as treasurer of it board of directors up until his death…

A 1996 Baltimore Sun article describing the launch of the International Youth foundation contains the following sentence: “The party was sponsored by Alex. Brown & Sons, which was represented by its chairman and CEO, A.B. “Buzzy” Krongard and his wife, Pat, as well as firm members J. Carter Beese and Greg Barnhill.”

The implication here is clear. For years, 9/11 researchers have tried to tie the suspicious transactions to Buzzy Krongard’s circle of influence. Now we see that the official explanation for the transactions (or alibi, if you prefer) – a newsletter called “Options Hotline” (a California-based Agora title) – can also be tied to Krongard’s circle of influence.

For 9/11 researchers, a new burning question is whether the original investigators realized this connection and documented it anywhere. The newly unearthed documents claim the SEC interviewed or examined 55 people who purchased puts. Did they inquire if these individuals had any relationship with Greg Barnhill and/or Agora beyond being simple newsletter subscribers?
