September 11th, 2001

On the day of 9/11, as New York City Police Commissioner, Kerik was the first to announce the official narrative that explosives were not used to demolish the World Trade Center His department also produced the undamaged passport of Satam al-Suqami which supposedly survived the impact and fireball that destroyed both the plane's black boxes.[1]

CNN reported on 9/11 that it was getting reports of men driving a van on the New Jersey Turnpike which was pulled over for unclear reasons, and found to contain "tons of explosives".[2] Some minutes later, Kerik contradicted these earlier reports, stating that although 3 arrests had taken place, the van was not stopped on the George Washington Bridge, and that no explosives were found. He did not give a reason for the arrests.[3]

Trip to Israel

Kerik left for a four-day trip to Israel on August 26th, 2001, "where he will meet with government officials to discuss anti-terror tactics and Israeli traffickers of Ecstasy pills." [4] While there he met with Eithan Wertheimer, whose loan was involved in Kerik's later indictment.[5]

In 2009 Kerik pleaded guilty[6] before U.S. federal prosecutors to 8 charges including criminal conspiracy, tax fraud, and lying under oath.[7] Kerik was sentenced to four years in federal prison on February 18, 2010.[8]
