Forewarned Bombing of U.S. Embassies in Africa Advance information of the al Qaeda bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa was provided to FBI agents in the New York City offices by a former Mafiosi, Gregory Scarpa, Jr., who had infiltrated the al Qaeda cell headed by Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and planner on the simultaneous bombings of 12 U.S. airliners departing Far East locations. Despite the enormous value of the information inadvertently provided by Yousef, despite the enormous consequences if the information was not immediately provided to other government departments so actions could be taken to minimize the success of the terrorist attacks, high-level FBI-DOJ personnel "deep-sixed" the data; keeping it secret. The reason for withholding the information was to prevent Scarpa from being recognized as creditable. Scarpa was scheduled to testify in several murder trials about the series of murders that his Mafia capo father, known as The Killing Machine, committed with a key FBI supervisor in the New York City FBI offices. If Scarpa had been recognized as providing information about al Qaeda planned terrorist attacks that the entire U.S. government had been unable to obtain, and obviously, creditable and loyal to the United States, his testimony about the murders perpetrated by the FBI supervisor with Scarpa/s father would have high credibility. That would expose the series of murders by a key FBI supervisor and the years of cover-ups of such crimes by high FBI-DOJ personnel who knew of the relationship. In addition, other criminal activities that were part of the culture of those people long in control of the U.S. Department of Justice would be exposed. In a cavalier manner, high-level FBI-DOJ personnel willingly acted to sacrifice the victims from the forewarned terrorist attacks. This culture is not difficult to understand if the history of such contempt was recognized as exposed by the heroic efforts of many former government agents. There is a long history of similar consequences from cover-ups, and these are especially detailed in the books related to this site written by a former federal agent and his long list of insider sources.
