Ptech and the 9/11 Software

This morning, while looking for something else, I came across a fascinating and possibly key interview that may help to answer some important questions about the carrying out of the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

It’s a talk with Indira Singh, who as a senior risk management consultant to JPMorgan Chase & Co. was researching software to implement for the financial institution. HERE, speaking in April 2005 with Bonnie Faulkner of KPFA’s Guns and Butter program, she describes the path that led her to discover the role the Saudi-financed company Ptech played as a contractor for a number of federal agencies, how she continued an investigation into Ptech, and the resistance she encountered.

The excerpt below is only several minutes of the interview, which was featured on Episode 045 of The Corbett Report in August 2008.

Indira Singh:As we spoke, other names started to come out. My head was pretty much spinning at this point, and I said, ‘Have you reported this to the FBI?’ And the answer came back, ‘Yes, I wrote a report to the FBI,” and I said, ‘Okay, if the Boston FBI has been told, I need to speak with people there because it’s not just my group that’s been evaluating [Ptech], it’s so many other groups.

I couldn’t believe, if this was true, that Ptech was still being used by the Department of Defense. There’s something a little bizarre about this, really. I was beginning to understand, unwillingly, that the world wasn’t the way I thought of it. This was beginning to sound like a Tom Clancy novel, and I needed proof. I told [my source] I needed emails, I needed documents, I needed hard evidence.

But in the meantime I had contacted my rep at IBM, and I told him, ‘I need to walk outside and talk to you about something. If you guys are getting seriously into bed with this company [Ptech] I would suggest that you do some background investigation so that your clients — like JP Morgan and myself — don’t end up in this situation. … [He] told me [later] he wrote a quote-unquote ‘book report’ to his legal department, and he was told to just back off the whole thing. In fact, he didn’t want to have anything to do with me as I continued investigating.

In his introduction to the interview excerpts, James Corbett mentions two other episodes of The Corbett Report that provide background and context.

One is Episode 020, “Webster Tarpley on the 9/11 Drills,” from September 2004.

The other is Episode 031, “Welcome to 9/11 Truth,” from February 2008. Note that this “audio documentary” was put together after the Indira Singh’s interview with Bonnie Faulkner. Besides Singh, it features ex-CIA field agents, FBI translators, the former German Defense Secretary, the pilot who flew two of the planes used in 9/11, Congressman Curt Weldon, and others.
