Someone, who knew in advance of the 9/11 attack, made money on the stock market by selling short on affected stocks.

We have never been told who. We the people have never demanded to know.

Bloomberg data show that on 6 September, the Thursday before that black Tuesday, put-option volume in UAL (United Airlines) stock was nearly 100 times higher than normal — 2,000 versus 27 on the previous day.

On 6 and 7 September, the Chicago Board Options Exchange handled 4,744 put options for United Airlines' stock, translating into 474,000 shares, compared with just 396 call options, or 39,600 shares. On a day that the put-to-call ratio should have been roughly 1:1 (no negative news stories about United had broken), it was instead 12:1.

On 10 September, another uneventful news day, American Airlines' option volume was 4,516 puts and 748 calls, a ratio of 6:1 on yet another day when by rights these options should have been trading even.

No other airline stocks were affected that week — only United and American were shorted.

The Chicago Board Options Exchange is investigating (?) each of these trades and at this time is declining to offer comment on its progress.  They know that Martha Steward had deception on her mind when she sold her IMC stock, but they don't want to tell us who new we were going to be attacked? The American people are idiots if they arn't calling for answers on this.

Is it possible to trade stock without identifying oneself? Did someone front for the terrorists? Has anyone else heard more recent news on this investigation?
