9/11 Evidence

Full article: 9-11/Insider Trading

The German Central bank studied the possibility of insider trading. Welteke stated that the German researchers found “almost irrefutable proof of insider trading”,[1] stating that “What we found makes us sure that people connected to the terrorists must have been trying to profit from this tragedy.”[2]


Welteke resigned in April (by 16) after it was publicised that he and his family had accepted a €7,600 free stay in Berlin's top Adlon Hotel.[3]
