Mossad Chief Took ‘Leave Of Absence’ During 9/11 Attacks

Fact checked
New Mossad chief took took 'leave of absence' in the planning stages of the 9/11 attacks, citing 'personal business' as his reason

Back in 2000 Yossi Cohen, who was recently appointed as the new head of Mossad, decided to take unpaid leave from the organization in order to conduct “private business” and to dedicate more time to his children. 

Shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Cohen rejoined the organisation in a new position as head of Junction’s Special Operations Center.

Could it be that this ‘leave of absence’ was a plan to oversee Mossad’s contribution to the 9/11 attacks?

Being a “private businessman” he would have had enough anonymity to travel around the US without arousing suspicion.

LOL, taking more time to spend with the family is the oldest canard in the list of political excuses and cover stories.

If he were caught, it would have distanced him from the organization and offered some plausible deniability. Lo and behold, 9/11 was a big success (for its perpetrators), and he was rewarded with a promotion. Why would they promote someone who had just taken a 2+ year leave of absence?
