ISRAELIS were 9-11 short sale stock buyers, betting on WTC terror strikes, story killed...

Between August 26 and September 11, 2001, a group of speculators, identified by the American Securities and Exchange Commission as Israeli citizens, sold "short" a list of 38 stocks that could reasonably be expected to fall in value as a result of the pending attacks. These speculators operated out of the Toronto, Canada and Frankfurt, Germany, stock exchanges and their profits were specifically stated to be "in the millions of dollars."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A reader asked a cogent question of how it was possible to know that Bernie Madoff's wife withdrew $15 million days before he confessed to his ponzi scheme, yet nobody ever found out who shorted the stocks of the airlines involved with 9-11.

So I dug this out in reply, and especially in light of Bernie Madoff's scam-capades, decided to relink it here to the front page.
