2 December 1997, New York: My last and clearest 9/11 warning given in a Brooklyn factory

I gave my last and most specific 9/11 style attack warning whilst working at a print factory in Brooklyn, specifically asking several people to pass my urgent and desperate warnings to authorities. The two machine operators I was training had asked if I would be visiting the World Trade Centre (WTC) and I gave an emphatic “No!” in answer. I repeated my 9/11 style hijacking fears to them, saying I expected the group that bombed the WTC in 1993 to try again but using a hijacked civilian airliner as a missile. I told them I conceived the danger after seeing the complete absence of any security whatsoever at Logan airport.

They asked why I could not report it myself - I explained I was a in a foreign country and approaching any security agency with such a warning could have dire consequences for me if misunderstood. That’s when they decided to call Mr. Barkochba, saying: 

"This is the man to tell."  

I repeated my warning in detail to Mr. Barkochba and asked if he knew any security services. He responded that he did know ‘some important people in that field’ and that he would tell them - a vague but authoritative answer. Knowing this was to be my last business trip to the USA and my last chance to give my warning about a 9/11 style attack I also told Mr Barkochba about my recent visit to Yemen. I told him I’d given the same warning whilst in Yemen and that I’d been taken to a very unusual meeting on the last day of my visit there. Although my suspicions from Yemen were very vague I thought giving Mr Barkochba that detail would guarantee my being contacted by his security service contacts.

That was when I felt I’d done everything I could to passed on my warnings about and fears of terrorists using a hijacked civilian airliner to attack the World Trade Centre.

I’d warned the airline inside Logan airport; I’d tried to pass on a warning to security service in Canada (via Bob Wilton of Sunworthy Decorative printers in Toronto) and now in New York I'd warned a man who intimated he had direct connections to the secret services. I gave Mr Barkochba my business card and ask him to identify me to the security services as the origin of this warning - I wanted them to contact me so I could share my fears directly.

‘Barkochba’ is Aramaic language for “Son of a Star” and has huge historical significance leading me to believe it is a nom-de-guerre. Please see "The Bar Kochba Revolt: A Disaster Celebrated by Zionists” for further context.

A second suspicion I have about my visit to Ultra Flex is that my visit there was a deliberate setup by Dave Dean (my employer’s ex-Special Forces US salesman) to see if I would repeat the 9/11 warning I had given in Yemen. My reasoning for that suspicion is:

· I was sent to Ultra Flex after my role had been changed from international service technician to domestic British sticky tape salesman
· I was given the wrong name - Ultra Creative rather than Ultra Flex
· The machine operators I was training asked me if I would visit the World Trade Centre
· The wide web flexographic plate mounting machine I was installing would be pointless unless they had a wide web flexographic printing press - typically twenty metres long and one or two stories high - but I don’t recall seeing any printing press at the Ultra Flex factory

It should be relatively easy for US authorities to establish whether Ultra Flex did have a flexographic printing press in their factory in 1997 - if they didn’t then that effectively establishes that my visit there was a setup by Dave Dean and my Father, John Heaford.

The next morning when visiting the Empire State building I did consider going to the WTC to repeat my warning, but again a fear of being misunderstood (making a threat rather than giving a warning) prevented me. I had a good job, travelling the world and I did not want to risk that. I gave what I thought were sufficient warnings, but I was wrong. I am sorry.

I never received any response to my 9/11 style attack warnings, despite two people (Sunworthy factory manager Bob Wilton and Ultra-Flex business partner Dan Barkochba) saying they’d pass my warnings and business card to security services contacts. No one appeared interested or to care. That December 1997 business trip was the last time I was in the United States of America.
