McLeod's Views

In 2005 Judi McLeod & David Hawkins wrote an article - titled '9/11 and the Mob' - purporting to explain the "true life stranger than fiction" story of Cantor Fitzgerald Securities, its subsidiary eSpeed and the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre. After sketching the effect of the attack on the World Trade Centre on Cantor Fitzgerald, their corporate rivals and tangential links of a staff member to gambling interests, McLead and Hawkins concluded "It is even possible that this is not mob related? If this is mob, did the mob know of the impending attack on 9/11? The terrorist-piloted plane hit Cantor Fitzgerald directly–one floor below where they were located. This would be the worst possible spot because the flames would go up and engulf everything." [3]

"Could this really be only sheer coincidence? No suicide jockey flying a plane for the first time coincidentally hit right where the mob knew they would hit. What are the odds of a six-member executive team surviving the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center while almost 800 of their employees burned or jumped 103 stories to their death? The plane had to be aimed very carefully which implies GPS and targeting not a nut flying for the first time. Do you buy the story that they found Mohammed Atta’s suicide note and luggage, including a will but not two black boxes? Canada Free Press did. Not anymore," McLead and Hawkins wrote. [4]

In March 2006 McLeod complained that the "Spanish-Language media has been tagged as chief organizer" of the massive protests by the Latino community over proposals to toughen immigration policy. In particular McLeod singled out Telemundo Chicago and focused on its owners NBC and GE. Tracing the companies corporate shareholdings, McLeod concluded that "Swiss Jews, an Irish/Canadian manager, and a Califormia Jew run Lazard, Barclays, GE and NBC all the way up to the not-so Spanish media that is run by people that do not speak Espanola. Missed by the mainline media is the identify of the forces who instigated, ordered then gave the explicit how-to instructions, which were followed to the letter by tens of thousands of protesters."
