When Terror Drills Turned Real: 9-11, the London Bombings & the Sinking of Estonia
the official dive for evidence to the wreck of Estonia, on which more
than 852 people are known to have died, the crucial locking bolt from
the bow visor, which officials blame for having caused the catastrophe,
was thrown back into the sea.
The bolt from the Atlantic lock had been detached by divers and brought
to the surface for investigation only to be thrown back to the sea by
B�rje Stenstr�m, the Swedish navy commander who was the head of the
technical group of the international investigation commission.
Stenstr�m's throwing the bolt back to the sea was clearly the
destruction of "one of the most important pieces of evidence," according
to his own scenario of what had caused the sinking.
The Cult of the Bow Visor
Estonia's bow visor,an example of seen open here, is blamed by corrupt investigators for
causing the sinking. The crucial evidence that would prove otherwise was
thrown back into the sea. The Swedish government's effort to support
their "official lie" with a computer simulation of the sinking has
failed because the model of the vessel simply won't sink absent a hole
below the waterline.
The Estonia Catastrophe
The unexplained sinking of the Baltic ferry Estonia on its way to
Stockholm from Tallinn in late September 1994 is the third mega-disaster
(not in chronological order) that occurred within the framework of a
The day before it sank Estonia had also been the scene of a terrorism
exercise in which the scenario was a terror bombing of the ferry.
Looking at the NATO military assets that were assembled nearby and the
terrorism drill that had just been conducted on the ship, the stage was
clearly set and the actors were in place for what turned out to be a
The Estonia catastrophe is Europe's worst maritime disaster since World War II. 852 people
are known to have died when Estonia sank in the early hours of
September 28, 1994, but more than 1,000 may have perished, if, as
reported, some 150 Iraqi Kurds were being smuggled to Sweden in one of
the trucks on its car deck.
Scores of people died in the frigid water of the Baltic Sea waiting for
rescue boats and helicopters that came too late. More than ninety bodies
were retrieved from the life rafts.
The Toll - The bodies of some of the Estonia victims retrieved from the Baltic Sea.
NATO's "Search & Rescue" Exercise
Although it is seldom mentioned, the Estonia catastrophe occurred on the first day of a 10-day NATO naval exercise called Cooperative Venture 94,
in which more than 15 ships and "a number of maritime aircraft" were
prepared to conduct "humanitarian and search and rescue operations" in
The NATO exercise, which involved 10 NATO member states and the Baltic
"partner" nations of Russia, Sweden, Poland, and Lithuania, was to be
staged in the Skagerrak, between Denmark and Norway, and the Norwegian
Sea, according to the NATO press release about the exercise from September 16, 1994.
The NATO nations who participated in the exercise were Belgium, Canada,
Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, United Kingdom,
and the United States. Many other allies and partners sent observers to
the exercise, according to the NATO press release.
The fact that Estonia sank as the submarines, ships, planes, personnel,
and satellites from the navies of 14 nations were preparing to begin
their 10-day "search and rescue operations" exercise off the coast of
Sweden raises several obvious questions that deserve to be answered:
First and foremost, if NATO had 15 ships and a number of aircraft
assembled and prepared to conduct "search and rescue operations," why
didn't NATO assist in the early morning rescue operation for the victims
from the Estonia catastrophe?
The Swedish rescue helicopters were ill-prepared and ill-equipped, which
resulted in a fatal delay for those waiting to be rescued.
"Were there specially-equipped rescue helicopters or other aircraft that
could have assisted?" Drew Wilson, author of The Hole (2006), a book
about the Estonia catastrophe, wrote:
Survivors who didn't
die from hypothermia while floating on upturned boats or flotsam in the
biting water waited four-six hours for rescue. NATO search-and-rescue
personnel and equipment could have saved some lives. Flying time was
under 1 hour. Why didn't they respond to the distress traffic? What
The evidence indicates that the Mayday signals from Estonia had been jammed, as were all radio communications in the area.
"A series of comprehensive malfunctions in regional communication
systems all at once, and all at the exact time the ferry had sunk
suggest involvement by a military or intelligence services," Wilson
writes in The Hole. "Was a distress call intentionally blocked? If so,
why? Communications throughout the Northern Baltic Sea were disrupted
during the time of the accident."
As Wilson documents, VHF Channel 16, the international Mayday channel,
and Channel 2182 were blocked. "Signal jamming of all radio
communications apparently occurred on the Southern coastline of Finland
as the accident unfolded."
The NSA of the United States, the intelligence and spy agency which
monitors signal intelligence around the world, reportedly has a file of
documents about the Estonia catastrophe which remain classified more
than 13 years after the passenger and car ferry supposedly sank due to a
faulty bow visor. Why would the NSA maintain top-secret files about an
innocent ship wreck in the Baltic Sea in 1994?
Werner Hummel, the German investigator,
said that his Group had documentation showing that the regional
telephone network servicing the catastrophe site failed just as it was
needed most. The malfunction was truly a startling coincidence. The
telephone company stated its entire radio communications network, for
unknown reasons, had been down from 1:03 to 1:58 a.m. � almost exactly
the time the Estonia first encountered trouble until the time it
disappeared from radar.?
Didn't the NATO communications
units prepared for the "search and rescue" exercise overhear the
distress calls coming from Estonia? NATO, with state-of-the-art
satellite and airborne surveillance assets in place over the Baltic Sea
certainly must know who was blocking the SOS calls.
Why has this information been kept secret since 1994? Blocking SOS calls
and jamming distress signals is a violation of international law. Why
has this crime not been investigated?
The intentional blocking of the Mayday signals from Estonia points to
complicity in mass murder. "Naval exercises are meant to be as realistic
as possible," Olivier Schmidt, author of The Intelligence Files:
Today's Secrets, Tomorrow's Scandals, writes.
What was the "search and rescue" scenario of NATO's Cooperative Venture
94 exercise, which was commanded at sea by the Dutch submarine commander
Gijsbert Goofert Hooft?
I sent a series of pertinent questions to Robert Pszczel, NATO's press
officer for Baltic issues, about NATO's response to the Estonia
Did NATO have any naval assets in the Baltic Sea on the night of
September 27-28, 1994 and what actions did NATO take in the immediate
aftermath of the Estonia disaster?
Did NATO pick up the Mayday signals being sent (and jammed) from
Estonia? Why didn't NATO assist, given the urgent need to retrieve
hundreds of freezing people from life rafts? What was the scenario of
NATO's search and recovery exercise?
Despite telephone calls and email exchanges with the press office at
NATO headquarters, Robert Pszczel failed to respond to a single question
about NATO's response to the Estonia catastrophe for this article.
Drew Wilson ran into the same wall of silence at NATO when he asked questions about Estonia for his book The Hole.
If NATO has a reasonable explanation for its failure to respond and
assist during Europe's worst maritime disaster since World War II, why
is it unwilling to provide it? To whom is this organization
had 14 ships, submarines, aircraft, and personnel from the United
States, Europe, Sweden, and Russia assembled near the scene of the
sinking of Estonia, Europe's worst maritime disaster since World War II.
The purpose of the NATO exercise included "search and rescue"
operations, yet when disaster struck, NATO did nothing to help. Why?
What was NATO doing that was more important than saving the lives of
their citizens? Why won't they even talk about it? If not the citizens,
to whom is NATO accountable? What kind of organization is this?
Estonia's Bomb Drills
The Estonia ferry had been the object of bomb threats and had
participated in at least two terror bomb exercises in 1994, one in
February and another just the day before it sank.
On February 2, 1994, Estonia was the subject of a major mock bomb
exercise conducted with RITS, Sweden's maritime fire and rescue agency,
and the Stockholm police. The Stockholm police had requested to take
part in the exercise and used bomb-sniffing dogs to find explosives. The
terror simulation involved a scenario in which "bombs" had been placed
in the sauna and swimming pool area on the lowest deck, below the
waterline in the bow of the ship. A second "bomb" was placed in the
sleeping quarters on the first deck, also below the waterline.
In the Estonia terrorism scenario, the explosives in the sauna were to
be found by the dogs, while the second "bomb" was to explode. The
purpose of this terrorism drill was to train with the ship's crew and
include shore-based terrorism experts and police with bomb-sniffing
dogs, brought to the ship by helicopter. In the simulation, the "bombs"
were set to explode about half way between the Estonian and Swedish
coasts, which is where the ship actually sank in September 1994 after a
similar mock bomb threat exercise.
When Estonia sank, another mock bomb exercise on the ship had just been
concluded. Survivors from the sinking actually reported hearing two huge
explosions immediately before the ship listed to starboard. Several
crew members testified to having heard the coded fire alarm "Mr.
Skylight to No. 1 and 2" over the ferry's public address system at about
1:02 a.m. after the vessel had listed severely.
This is the exact same message for the crew that was used during the
previous bomb drill in February 1994. "Mr. Skylight" was a signal for
the fire fighters to proceed to their fire stations 1 and 2 and prepare
for damage control. The fact that this coded alarm was given indicates
that there was damage caused by a fire or explosion that required
immediate attention. The ferry sank within 30 minutes.
Eyewitness testimony from survivors plus the fact that the ship sank
extremely quickly strongly suggest that explosives were used to tear a
large hole in the hull below the waterline. Swedish policemen who had
just conducted training involving a mock bomb threat on the ferry were
returning home when Estonia sank. Of the 70 policemen, only 7 survived.
Bomb hole in the hull of Estonia
Estonia was being used to ferry drugs and Soviet military contraband,
which probably included advanced space weapons technology, when she
sank. The highest officials in Swedish customs, the government, and
military were aware of the sensitive and illegal shipments that put the
ferry at risk. Is this why they are so dedicated to protecting the lies
about the sinking?
