A 21 year veteran of the CIA, Robert Baer is billed as "one of America’s most elite intelligence case officers." Having worked field assignments in Lebanon, Sudan, Morocco, Iraq and other international hotspots, he was praised by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh as "perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East."

He has written multiple books based on his experiences with the agency. He has worked as a consultant on documentary and television projects. He regularly appears as a commentator on CNN and other news outlets, and he writes a regular column on intelligence matters for Time. George Clooney's character in Syriana, Bob Barnes, is based on Baer and his experiences with the CIA.

"... and 90% of what's left is in the Middle East. This is fight to the death."

"I think we've got something that utilizes your ... specific skills set.

"His moneys in a lot of dark corners."

CLOONEY: "I want you to take him from his hotel, drug him, put him in the front of a car and run a truck into him at 50 miles an hour."

"It's good to have you back in town, Bob."

Robert Baer retired from the CIA in 1997 and received the agency's Career Intelligence Medal the following year.

In short, he is a serious and well-respected career intelligence official.

All of this makes it particularly stunning that in 2008 he told a team of citizen journalists in Los Angeles that he knew a man who "cashed out" the day before 9/11.

JEREMY ROTHE-KUSHEL: …the last thing I want to leave you with is the National Reconnaissance Office was running a drill of a plane crashing into their building and you know they’re staffed by DoD and CIA…

ROBERT BAER: I know the guy that went into his broker in San Diego and said ‘cash me out, it’s going down tomorrow.’



STEWART HOWE: That tells us something.


STEWART HOWE: That tells us something.

ROBERT BAER: Well his brother worked at the White House.

Given Robert Baer's experience and training, it is difficult to comprehend just how significant the information that he just casually admits here really is. We are left with only two possibilities: either Baer is lying, or he has direct knowledge of someone "whose brother worked at the White House" who had foreknowledge of the 9/11 plot. There is no middle ground here.

The man Robert Baer claims to know is at least an accessory before the fact to the crimes of 9/11, if not an actual accomplice or co-conspirator in those crimes. By failing to report this information to the investigative authorities, Baer leaves himself open to being an accessory after the fact to those same crimes.

Title 18 Section 3 of the US Code defines the criteria for an "Accessory After the Fact" to a crime committed against the United States:

"Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact."

Given the exceptionally grave nature of this admission and its repercussions, one would suppose that Baer has been questioned by other media and/or the FBI and made to discuss in detail precisely who it was who cashed out and how he knew about the 9/11 plot in advance. But one would be wrong. Since making this stunning admission to the cameras of We Are Change Los Angeles, no one has ever asked Baer for more information about the case.

So what does Robert Baer say about the possibility of a 9/11 inside job?

In 2007, writing about the CIA's admission that they illegally destroyed the videotaped interrogations of high profile terror suspects, Baer said:

"I myself have felt the pull of the conspiracy theorists — who believe that 9/11 was an inside job, somehow pulled off by the U.S. government. For the record, I don't believe that the World Trade Center was brought down by our own explosives, or that a rocket, rather than an airliner, hit the Pentagon. I spent a career in the CIA trying to orchestrate plots, wasn't all that good at it, and certainly couldn't carry off 9/11. Nor could the real pros I had the pleasure to work with."

But just one year before he gave a very different answer to Thomas Hartmann on his radio show.

THOMAS HARTMANN: So are you personally of the opinion, obviously you can't speak for the CIA or your previous activities with the agency, but are you of the opinion that there was an aspect of "inside job" to 9/11 within the U.S. Government?

ROBERT BAER: There's that possibility. The evidence points at it.

HARTMANN: And why is not being investigated?

BAER: Why isn't the WMD story being investigated? Why hasn't anybody been held accountable for 9/11? I mean, we held people accountable after Pearl Harbor. So why has there been no change of command, why have there been no political repercussions? Why has there not been any sort of exposure on this? It really makes you wonder.

So why is Robert Baer hiding the identity of a 9/11 accomplice or co-conspirator? And will the FBI be asking him for details of this story any time soon? Until the American public show some interest in this shocking admission, it is unlikely that anything will happen.

    Good series.

    Incidentally, for those seeking a solid introduction / overview of 9/11 suspects, Kevin Ryan’s Another Nineteen: Investigating Legitimate 9/11 Suspects stands out as a strong recommendation.

    We’ve certainly come a long way since the fear-based stuck-on-stupid cretinism that dominated the discourse fifteen years ago.

    I’m 66 years old and follow, support and enjoy the Corbett Report. The outrageous truths and acts that I’ve learned here do not surprise me. What better deniability cover than of something that’s “too unbelieveable”. And in my small world, most don’t want these questions asked, much less answered. True sheeple. And I’m the crazy one? Pass the kool-aid Rev. Jones.

  3. VoiceOfArabi says:

    Are you a “Robert Baer”, but don’t know it yet??

    What if Robert Baer changed his mind?? What if he was forced to change his mind??

    It is not until recently that I discovered that the “powers to be” still engages in the old game of “do as we say, or we kill you, and your family”.

    I use to think that killing people to silence them was a method for USSR and other dictators…

    but then i started reading for John Perkins and other writers that documents this, and i started seeing how anyone that crosses the USA dies horribly and sometimes sodomized by a stick courtesy of NATO (Libyan leader).

    Then, I started critically looking into the USA and US citizens, Martin Luther King, JFK, ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_presidential_assassination_attempts_and_plots ) and some international King Faisal of Saudi, President Jaime Roldós Aguilera of Ecuador and Omar Torrijos of Panama and that’s confirmed kills, and I have no doubt thousands of serious threats, one of the last that we know of is Air Force One continued flying while 9/11 was happening because of threats that Chaney pointed out to President Bush.

    Now.. The question….:

    Would you change your mind, just like Robert Baer did, if it is a matter of life and death???

    Would you rather live to see your grand children, or have your throat cut accidentally while shaving??

      Brother Voice–we are not dealing with Men here. No, is the answer to your question. Here’s a question for you. In 1946-1947 would you have approved of foreign nationals (Soviet Union citizens in general-/Brooklyn NY–L.A. etc-Netenyahu is from Belarus–all PM’s have been from the Soviet Union) attack and take the land of an indigenous people and ultimately put them in a literal concentration camp and impose genocide upon it’s people? Islam aside–would you have done it?

      This is a disgrace to all humanity. My friends from Palestine were driven out after 1948 when it occurred (early 1960’s). The Jews and muslims drove them out–Christians they were. Their families had lived there for thousands of years with jews and Moslems–Christians–in relative peace–as had mine (well, not with them)–here in United States (well, Canada for me–but America–I have stories about The Bureau of Indian Affairs I may share at some point).

      I believe that “The Only Democracy in The Middle East” is short lived and they have maybe 10 years at most–then–it’s over. They know it. The world is aghast at their behavior and they must get out. I believe Ukraine is their next destination—-wonderful natural resources, oil-gas–etc. perfect strategic location and they did live there at one time. Many jews once lived there–Kicked out for some reason—I can’t imagine why.

      James did a piece on Turkey/Russia and other areas but he should have looked at Ukraine–this is where the next battle shall be. Gas, Oil, essential minerals, Water and a hated people. They need a home—Putin’s discussions with Netanyahu gives me great pause. The Banksters who have stolen trillions of $$ are not Muslims or Roman Catholics.

      These are not Men brother Arabia——Parasites upon humanity. Now, what shall we do? These are not men—these are parasites. Look up the readings (I had a friend who was a Librarian Investigator–an actual degree) of Menachen Begin—he wrote in 1943 or so–“We shall create a Totalitarian Communist State (police state implied) in our new state for the Jews (even though he was an atheist–while WW2 was going on–that was the plan–my father almost died for them in WW2–forgiveness shall be hard fought).

        Hi Mohawk Man,

        Always pleasure to read your posts.

        I myself, not sure. I mean, i would certainly help someone on the street, or even fight for someones life, whom i may not even know, but I still have points were i would coward. For example, were i live now, there is a lot of injustice on and off the streets, and if i even think about speaking out, i would be disappeared in blink of an eye. So, I would love to think i am brave, however, the majority stops being brave when we know it is certain death without changing the situation. (if there is even slight possibility of changing the situation, then bravery wins).

        That said, there is certain bravery in a crowd, and i guess that’s why i am here.

        With regards to religion, my views are as follows:

        All religions, initially, was a way (method) to live a better life. They are meant to be a code of conduct between one person and God (who and whatever that god maybe). It was never meant as a tool to crowd control, or repress the masses.

        Islam as a religion, was hijacked about 1150 years ago by power hungry politicians no different than the politicians we have today.

        I am sure you can document the same with other religions, like Judaism and Christianity and many other religions. You can easily find this out by reading history, some of which is clearly stated, and some others you will have to read between the lines.

        The cancer we have in Israel is as Jewish as ISIS is Muslim.

        Both are political movements disguised in religion. (interestingly enough, they both support each other right now 🙂 )

        Israel will not go anywhere by choice.. but there is a large chance it will implode. Israel is like a mini USA, in terms that a “mad” powers to be controlling the rest of the country. The only difference is, USA is more than 300 million people, with less than 1 % nasty people. Israel only 6 million people, so the nasty ones stick out like a sore thumb, and people can see this clearly (decent Jews know Israeli government is sick, and many rejects their methods, but have not got enough courge to do anything about it yet)

        I am hoping that one day Israeli government will implode, and get replaced by a better government. One that accepts Christians, Jews, Muslims, etc, etc accepts all people as they are regardless of religion or race. if you belong to the land, then it is your country with equal rights.

        Something interesting about Israeli check points. Are they really about security?
        No. There are two types of check-points: for pedestrians and for cars only. They are very different.

    I was somewhat aware of Robert Baer but hadn’t comprehended the significance of his admissions until now.

    I’m truly stunned.

  5. Sonex says:

    As much as Donald Trump gets vilified by the lame stream media, and even alternative media, he surprisingly said while campaigning in South Carolina that he will get to the truth of who was behind 911 if elected. On 911, he publicly stated that “those buildings should never have come down.” Given his knowledge of construction, he obviously suspected something. Supposedly, the Trump campaign has been receptive of 911 “truthers”.

    Any thoughts as to whether he will really come through?

    • Octium says:

      Given that Rudy Giuliani is involved with 9/11 crimes and is good mates with Trump, I would have thought the answer to that one would be obvious?

      • ralphodavis says:

        Nuff said on compatriot opportunist buddy Rudy. Trump, too, feels the Bern.

        @ 1:08 in this Syriana trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTa2PTcycyI is a snippet essence of a great soliloquy on ‘corruption’. Maybe the best ever on film. This is a principle only too well integrated into the Donald’s real-world persona. Fear no departure from status quo on account of Trump. He knows what gets you fired, ..and dead, all too well.

        I confess to loving this film and its tawdry cousin: Body of Lies. They represent the epitome of modern geopolitical intrigue as limited-hangout within the entertainment complex. Fictionalized: the CIA’s clinically proven best way to implant a desired mindset targeting a specific audience. You can see well trained Baer doing exactly that in the interview clip. Once an agent…

        So, beautifully crafted, scripted and cast by the best co-opted talent that Federal Reserve notes can buy. It just doesn’t get any better than this candy-apple psy-op masterpiece. If only reality were so f’n witty & pretty. Oh, well.

        Of course Syriana lost money and is much too convoluted, (read complex and nuanced), for the limited attention span of the average thrill seeking viewer. But, do see it if you haven’t made the attempt. I doubt that Hollywood will ever make better confessional propaganda.

    • mik says:

      Trump is also floating the idea that elections will be rigged. Conspiracy theory?
      I wouldn’t be surprised at all that someone talking about election rigging or maybe even some other conspiracy, could now be marked as Trump supporter.

      I think that is the whole idea.
      Take over the idea, narrative.

      For whistle-blowing we have Wikileaks and Assange.
      For eavesdropping we have Snowjob.
      We will have moron Drumpf for conspiracysts

    I like this video series, and this one with Robert Baer pretty much confirms 9/11 was an inside Israeli/Saudi job, however Robert Baer isn’t a suspect, or even a co-conspirator, he chats with the guys from loose change and obviously is open enough to talk to them and must feel a kind of kinship with them, enough so that he shares personal info, but this personal info doesn’t mean he knew on that Sept 10 that the towers were coming down and stayed quiet. The man is obviously well connected and knows many people, and he simply admits that he knows somebody that knew, but that doesn’t make him a suspect, or co-conspirator, he’s simply acknowledging to the boys from loose change and he’s basically saying :”hey guys, I’m one of you and here’s a little tidbit that confirms your theory, keep up the good work”

  8. HomeRemedySupply says:

    At the “Jewish Community Center of San Francisco” Robert Baer talks about his role as a CIA operative.

    Bob Graham is there and the 28 pages are discussed.

    In the video, he gloats about his ability to “lie” and to “misdirect” his entire life, a master at deception while appearing affable.

    Baer mentions the USS Liberty, but then again he says some “CIA type stuff” (non-answers, distractions, hyperbole, possible lies, opaque).

    What is also interesting is that Robert Baer gets lots of play in the Press and a lot of support.
    His books… …Interviews with the Press… …His supposed acumen on Saudi Arabia and Arabic…(when he mentions the Royal Family being 60,000, I am a bit skeptical on that hyperbole)…

    – Sibel Edmonds and Robert Baer –
    I compare Robert Baer’s limelight in the Press and book support to the support which Sibel Edmonds received.
    Sibel was suppressed by the government and media. Publishers don’t really want to deal with Sibel.
    Where is Sibel’s movie with a big name star?

    …The George Clooney / Matt Damon movie “Syriana” based on Robert Baer.

    As a matter of speculation…
    Robert Baer has a supposed acumen about Saudi Arabia, despite the silliness that this is “old” acumen because he left the Mideast in the late 90’s. He says he speaks Arabic.
    If he was “still on a ‘payroll'” (whether by favors or by cash), he could be an asset, a public celebrity in order to portray a certain agenda.
    And in fact, I think that is what he currently does.
    He pipes out public stories which suit the covert agendas.
    So, my bet is that he currently is a CIA asset.

      Hi HomeRemedySupply,

      Although i suggested that ROBERT BAER may have been a coward who changed is mind to save his life above.. what i really think is he is an agent who is paid to muddy the water, just as you stated above.

      I wrote my opinion above just to highlight that many people are being killed when they speak out, from small “no body” on the street, to kings and presidents”

      My gut feel is, ROBERT BAER is still on the payroll to create confusion, and misinform.

    • Cu Chulainn says:

      there was a Hollywood movie about Sibel, it was called Kill the Messenger

      notable about the movie–it used Sibel’s legitimate story for partisan purposes, and to legitimate the bogus Valerie Plame

    “I don’t believe that the World Trade Center was brought down by our own explosives, or that a rocket, rather than an airliner, hit the Pentagon….”

    Q. Do you believe WTC was brought down by SOMEBODY ELSE’S explosives?
    Q. Do you believe a CRUISE MISILE dressed up to look like a plane, rather than a rocket, hit the pentagon?
    Q. Have you seen any hard evidence (surveillance video, wreckage etc.) to prove an airliner hit the pentagon?

    “I spent a career in the CIA trying to orchestrate plots, wasn’t all that good at it, and certainly couldn’t carry off 9/11. Nor could the real pros I had the pleasure to work with.”

    Q. The incompetence, lack of imagination and mental limitations of yourself and your peers notwithstanding, is it possible that a slightly more capable group with sufficient ambition and resources DID “carry off 911”?

    This clown is a barely adequately trained gate keeper (i.e. con artist). Say just enough credible stuff to gain our confidence so you can lead us down the garden path.

    They DID pull it off. By control of the MEDIA, the public’s experience of the events was shaped and, therefore, the beliefs & opinions of the people were controlled. It’s that simple.

    — Jeremy Rothe-Kushel and Bruno Bruhwiler —
    I sure admire these guys. I miss them.
    They are icons.
    One cool example… Vice President Joe Biden cornered.

    After awhile, being a strong activist can zap the air out of your lungs. Often other aspects of one’s life become neglected and need to be addressed. Then it is up to others to carry the torch.
