September Morn

(They) danced until the night
Became a brand new day
Two lovers playing scenes
From some romantic play
September morning
Still can make me feel that way

The Globe remembers the victims of 9/11 as they peel back the layers of time but stop short of searching for the landing gear and missing steel (even the photo is a mind fuck).

Yup, coming up on that again, and its at the time incalculable aftermath.


"American Pravda: 9/11 Conspiracy Theories


The 9/11 attacks themselves had astonished me as much as everyone else on the HBD list, but aside from carefully reading the developing story in the New York Times and my other morning newspapers, I was too busy with my work to otherwise follow the topic. At first, everyone seemed certain that there would soon be a wave of follow-up attacks by the dozens or perhaps even hundreds of other Islamic terrorists remaining in our country, but nothing like that ever happened. After a few weeks had gone by without any further explosions, even small ones, I told the other HBD listmembers that I now strongly suspected every last Al Qaeda terrorist in America had probably died in the suicide attacks of September 11th, and there wasn’t a single remaining operative left behind to commit further mayhem. Many of the others disagreed with me, but as the months and eventually the years went by, my surprising hypothesis turned out to be correct.

There was one important exception to this pattern, but it actually served to confirm the rule. As I wrote a few years ago in my original “American Pravda” article:
Consider the almost forgotten anthrax mailing attacks in the weeks after 9/11, which terrified our dominant East Coast elites and spurred passage of the unprecedented Patriot Act, thereby eliminating many traditional civil-libertarian protections. Every morning during that period the New York Times and other leading newspapers carried articles describing the mysterious nature of the deadly attacks and the complete bafflement of the FBI investigators. But evenings on the Internet I would read stories by perfectly respectable journalists such as Salon’s Laura Rozen or the staff of the Hartford Courant providing a wealth of additional detail and pointing to a likely suspect and motive. 
Although the letters carrying the anthrax were purportedly written by an Arab terrorist, the FBI quickly determined that the language and style indicated a non-Arab author, while tests pointed to the bioweapons research facility at Ft. Detrick, Md., as the probable source of the material. But just prior to the arrival of those deadly mailings, military police at Quantico, Va., had also received an anonymous letter warning that a former Ft. Detrick employee, Egyptian-born Dr. Ayaad Assaad, might be planning to launch a national campaign of bioterrorism. Investigators quickly cleared Dr. Assaad, but the very detailed nature of the accusations revealed inside knowledge of his employment history and the Ft. Detrick facilities. Given the near-simultaneous posting of anthrax envelopes and false bioterrorism accusations, the mailings almost certainly came from the same source, and solving the latter case would be the easiest means of catching the anthrax killer. 
Who would have attempted to frame Dr. Assaad for bioterrorism? A few years earlier he had been involved in a bitter personal feud with a couple of his Ft. Detrick coworkers, including charges of racism, official reprimands, and angry recriminations all around. 
When an FBI official shared a copy of the accusatory letter with a noted language-forensics expert and allowed him to compare the text with the writings of 40 biowarfare lab employees, he found a perfect match with one of those individuals. For years I told my friends that anyone who spent 30 minutes with Google could probably determine the name and motive of the likely anthrax killer, and most of them successfully met my challenge. 
This powerful evidence received almost no attention in the major national media, nor is there any indication that the FBI ever followed up on any of these clues or interrogated the named suspects. Instead, investigators attempted to pin the attacks on a Dr. Steven Hatfill based on negligible evidence, after which he was completely exonerated and won a $5.6 million settlement from the government for its years of severe harassment. Later, similar hounding of researcher Bruce Ivins and his family led to his suicide, after which the FBI declared the case closed, even though former colleagues of Dr. Ivins demonstrated that he had had no motive, means, or opportunity. In 2008, I commissioned a major 3,000-word cover story in my magazine summarizing all of this crucial evidence, and once again almost no one in the mainstream media paid the slightest attention.
Unlike the 9/11 attacks themselves, I had closely followed the Anthrax terrorism, and was shocked by the strange silence of the government investigators and our leading newspapers. At the time, I generally assumed that the attacks were totally unconnected with 9/11 and merely opportunistic, but I simply couldn’t understand how a few minutes a day of reading Salonand the Hartford Couranton the web could seemingly solve the front-page whodunit that was baffling everyone at the FBI and the New York Times. It was around that point when I started to wonder whether the elite media publications I had always relied upon were merely “Our American Pravda” under a different name.

Moreover, a 2014 book by Prof. Graeme MacQueen that I only very recently discovered has made a reasonably persuasive case that the Anthrax killings were intimately connected to the 9/11 attacks themselves, greatly magnifying the malfeasance of our media elites.

In theoretical physics, new scientific breakthroughs often occur when known objects are found to behave in inexplicable ways, thereby suggesting the existence of previously unsuspected forces or particles. In evolutionary biology, when a biological organism appears to be acting against its own genetic interests, we may safely assume that it has probably fallen under the control of a different organism, typically a parasite, which has hijacked the host and is directing its activities toward different ends. While I couldn’t be entirely sure what was happening to the politics and media of my own country, something very odd and disturbing was certainly taking place.

Things soon became even much worse. Since the 9/11 attacks had apparently been organized by Osama bin Laden and he was based in Afghanistan under Taliban protection, our attack on that country at least seemed rational. But suddenly there also soon appeared talk of attacking Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, which made absolutely no sense whatsoever.

At first I couldn’t believe what was taking place, simply awed by the breathtaking power and dishonesty of “our American Pravda,” with the establishment media so easily transforming black into white and night into day. Once again, quoting from my original article of that title:
The circumstances surrounding our Iraq War demonstrate this, certainly ranking it among the strangest military conflicts of modern times. The 2001 attacks in America were quickly ascribed to the radical Islamists of al-Qaeda, whose bitterest enemy in the Middle East had always been Saddam Hussein’s secular Baathist regime in Iraq. Yet through misleading public statements, false press leaks, and even forged evidence such as the “yellowcake” documents, the Bush administration and its neoconservative allies utilized the compliant American media to persuade our citizens that Iraq’s nonexistent WMDs posed a deadly national threat and required elimination by war and invasion. Indeed, for several years national polls showed that a large majority of conservatives and Republicans actually believed that Saddam was the mastermind behind 9/11 and the Iraq War was being fought as retribution. Consider how bizarre the history of the 1940s would seem if America had attacked China in retaliation for Pearl Harbor. 
True facts were easily available to anyone paying attention in the years after 2001, but most Americans do not bother and simply draw their understanding of the world from what they are told by the major media, which overwhelmingly—almost uniformly—backed the case for war with Iraq; the talking heads on TV created our reality. Prominent journalists across the liberal and conservative spectrum eagerly published the most ridiculous lies and distortions passed on to them by anonymous sources, and stampeded Congress down the path to war. 
The result was what my late friend Lt. Gen. Bill Odom rightly called the “greatest strategic disaster in United States history.” American forces suffered tens of thousands of needless deaths and injuries, while our country took a huge step toward national bankruptcy. Economics Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz and others have estimated that with interest the total long-term cost of our two recent wars may reach as high as $5 or $6 trillion, or as much as $50,000 per American household, mostly still unpaid. 
Meanwhile, economist Edward Wolff has calculated that the Great Recession and its aftermath cut the personal net worth of the median American household to $57,000 in 2010 from a figure nearly twice as high three years earlier. Comparing these assets and liabilities, we see that the American middle class now hovers on the brink of insolvency, with the cost of our foreign wars being a leading cause. 
But no one involved in the debacle ultimately suffered any serious consequences, and most of the same prominent politicians and highly paid media figures who were responsible remain just as prominent and highly paid today. For most Americans, reality is whatever our media organs tell us, and since these have largely ignored the facts and adverse consequences of our wars in recent years, the American people have similarly forgotten. Recent polls show that only half the public today believes that the Iraq War was a mistake. 
Author James Bovard has described our society as an “attention deficit democracy,” and the speed with which important events are forgotten once the media loses interest might surprise George Orwell.
As President George W. Bush began inexorably moving America toward the Iraq War in 2002, I realized with a terrible sinking feeling that the notoriously pro-Israel Neocon zealots had somehow managed to seize control of the foreign policy of his administration, a situation I could never have imagined even in my worst nightmare.

Throughout the 1990s and even afterward, I’d been on very friendly terms with the Neocons in NYC and DC, working closely with them on issues relating to immigration and assimilation.  I and my other DC friends were well aware of the fanatical views most Neocons held on Israel and Middle Eastern policy. Indeed, their foreign policy obsessions had been a regular staple of our jokes and ridicule, but since it seemed unimaginable that they would ever be given any authority in that sphere, their beliefs had seemed a relatively harmless eccentricity. After all, could anyone possibly imagine fanatical libertarians being placed in total control of the Pentagon, allowing them to immediately disband the American armed forces as a “statist institution”?

Moreover, the complete ideological triumph of the Neocons after the 9/11 attacks was all the more shocking given their recent political missteps. During the 2000 presidential campaign, nearly all of the Neocons had aligned themselves with Sen. John McCain, whose battle with Bush for the Republican nomination had eventually turned quite bitter, and as a consequence, they had been almost totally frozen out of high-level appointments. Both Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld were then widely regarded as Bush Republicans, lacking any significant Neocon ties, and the same was true for all the other top administration figures such as Colin Powell, Condeleeza Rice, and Paul O’Neil. Indeed, the only Neoconservative figure offered a Cabinet spot was Linda Chavez, and not only was the Labor Department always regarded as something of a boobie prize in a GOP Administration, but she was ultimately forced to withdraw her nomination due to her “nanny problems.” The highest-ranking Neocon serving under Bush was Rumsfeld Deputy Paul Wolfowitz, whose seemingly inconsequential appointment had been almost totally ignored by everyone.

Most of the Neocons themselves certainly seemed to recognize the catastrophic defeat they had suffered in the 2000 election. Back in those days, I was on very friendly terms with Bill Kristol, and when I stopped by his office at the Weekly Standard for a chat in the spring of 2001, he seemed in a remarkably depressed state of mind. I remember that at one point, he took his head in his hands and wondered whether it was time for him to just abandon the political battle, resigning his editorship and taking up a quiet post at a DC thinktank. Yet just eight or ten months later, he and his close allies were on their way to gaining overwhelming influence in our government, an eirie parallel to Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Lenin in Zurich. The totally fortuitous 9/11 attacks and the outbreak of war had suddenly allowed a small but committed ideological faction to seize control of a gigantic country.

A thorough account of the Neocons and their takeover of the Bush Administration in the aftermath of 9/11 is provided by Dr. Stephen J. Sniegoski in his 2008 book The Transparent Cabal, conveniently available on this website:

Oddly enough, for many years after 9/11, I paid very little attention to the details of the attacks themselves. I was entirely preoccupied with building my content-archiving software system, and with the little time I could spend on public policy matters, I was totally focused to the ongoing Iraq War disaster, as well as my terrible fears that Bush might at any moment suddenly extend the conflict to Iran. Despite Neocon lies, shamelessly echoed by our corrupt media, neither Iraq nor Iran had had anything whatsoever to do with the 9/11 attacks, so those events gradually faded in my consciousness, and I suspect the same was true for most other Americans. Al Qaeda had largely disappeared, with Bin Laden perhaps hiding in a cave somewhere. Despite endless Homeland Security “threat alerts,” there had been absolutely no further Islamic terrorism on American soil, and relatively little anywhere else outside the Iraq charnel house. So the precise details of the 9/11 plots had become almost irrelevant to me.

Others I knew seemed to feel the same way. Virtually all the exchanges I had with my old friend Bill Odom, the three-star general who had run the NSA for Ronald Reagan, had concerned the Iraq War and risk it might spread to Iran, as well as the bitter anger he felt toward Bush’s perversion of his beloved NSA into an extra-constitutional tool of domestic espionage. When the New York Times broke the story of the massive extent of domestic NSA spying, Gen. Odom declared that President Bush should be impeached and NSA Director Michael Hayden court-martialed. But in all the years prior to his untimely passing in 2008, I don’t recall the 9/11 attacks themselves even once coming up as a topic in our discussions.

During those same years, I’d also grown quite friendly with Alexander Cockburn, whose Counterpunch webzine seemed a very rare center of significant opposition to our disastrous foreign policy towards Iraq and Iran. I do recall that he once complained to me in 2006 about the “conspiracy nuts” of the 9/11 Truth movement who were endlessly harassing his publication, and I extended my sympathies. Each of us move in different political circles, and that brief reference may have been the first and only time I heard of the 9/11 Truthers during that period, causing me to regard them more like an eccentric UFO cult than anything else.

Admittedly, I’d occasionally heard of some considerable oddities regarding the 9/11 attacks here and there, and these certainly raised some suspicions. Most days I would glance at the Antiwar.com front page, and it seemed that some Israeli Mossad agents had been caught while filming that plane attacks in NYC, while a much larger Mossad “art student” spy operation around the country had also been broken up around the same time. Apparently, FoxNews had even broadcasta multi-part series on the latter subject before that expose was scuttled and “disappeared” under ADL pressure.

But I wasn’t sure about the credibility of those claims, though it did seem plausible that Mossad had known of the attacks in advance and allowed them to proceed, recognizing the huge benefits that Israel would derive from the anti-Arab backlash. I think I was vaguely aware that Antiwar.com editorial director Justin Raimondo had published The Terror Enigma, a very short book about some of these strange facts, bearing the provocative subtitle “9/11 and the Israeli Connection,” but I never considered reading it. In 2007, Counterpunch itself published a fascinating follow-up story about that arrest of that group of Israeli Mossad agents in NYC, who were caught filming and apparently celebrating the plane attacks on that fateful day, which turned out to be a much broader operation than I had previously realized. But all these details remained a little fuzzy in my mind next to my overriding concerns about wars in Iraq and Iran.

However, by the end of 2008 my focus had begun to change. Bush was leaving office without having started an Iranian war, and America had successfully dodged the bullet of an even more dangerous John McCain administration. I assumed that Barack Obama would be a terrible president and he proved worse than my expectations, but I still breathed a huge sigh of relief every day that he was in the White House.

Moreover, around that same time I’d stumbled across an astonishing detail of the 9/11 attacks that demonstrated the remarkable depths of my own ignorance. In a Counterpunch article, I’d discovered that immediately following the attacks, their supposed terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden had publicly denied any involvement, even declaring that no good Muslim would have committed such a deed.

Once I checked around a little and fully confirmed that fact, I was flabbergasted. 9/11 was not only the most successful terrorist attack in the history of the world, but may have been greater in its physical magnitude than all such previous terrorist operations combined. The entire purpose of terrorism is to allow a small organization to show the world that it can inflict serious losses upon a powerful state, and I had never previously heard of any terrorist leader denying his role in a successful operation, let alone the greatest in history. Something seemed extremely wrong in the media-generated narrative that I had previously accepted. I began to wonder if I had been as deluded as the tens of millions of Americans in 2003 and 2004 who naively believed that Saddam had been the mastermind behind the September 11th attacks. We live in a world of illusions generated by our media, and I suddenly felt that I had noticed a tear in the paper-mache mountains displayed in the background of a Hollywood sound-stage. If Osama was probably not the author of 9/11, what other huge falsehoods had I blindly accepted?

A couple of years later, I came across a very interesting column by Eric Margolis, a prominent Canadian foreign policy journalist purged from the broadcast media for his strong opposition to the Iraq War. He had long published a weekly column in the Toronto Sun and when that tenure ended, he used his closing appearance to run a double-length piece expressing his very strong doubts about the official 9/11 story.

In addition, an old friend of mine with strong connections to elite French circles at some point shared what he regarded as an amusing anecdote. He mentioned that at a private dinner party in Paris attended by influential political and media figures, France’s former Defense Minister had told the other disbelieving guests that the Pentagon had been struck by a missile rather than a civilian jetliner. My friend explained that the minister in question was widely regarded as extremely intelligent and level-headed, thereby proving that even the most highly reputable individuals may sometimes believe in utterly crazy things.

But I interpreted those same facts very differently. France probably possessed one of the four or five best intelligence service in the world, and surely a French Defense Minister would be privy to better information about true events than a typical media pundit. In fact, one of the earliest books sharply questioning the official 9/11 narrative was 9/11: The Big Lie by French journalist Thierry Meyssan, which appeared in 2002 and similarly argued that the Pentagon had been struck by a missile, perhaps suggesting that it may have been partly influenced by leaks coming from French Intelligence.

I eventually shared that account of the French minister’s private opinions with a very well-connected American individual, someone in our elite Establishment with whom I’d become a little friendly. His reaction made it clear that he held the same highly unorthodox views about the 9/11 attacks, although he had never publicly voiced them lest he risk losing his elite Establishment membership card.

Over the years, all these discordant claims had gradually raised my suspicions about the official 9/11 story to extremely strong levels, but it was only very recently that I finally found the time to begin to seriously investigate the subject and read eight or ten of the main 9/11 Truther books, mostly those by Prof. David Ray Griffin, the widely acknowledged leader in that field. And his books, together with the writings of his numerous colleagues and allies, revealed all sorts of very telling details, most of which had previously remained unknown to me. I was also greatly impressed by the sheer number of seemingly reputable individuals of no apparent ideological bent who had become adherents of the 911 Truth movement over the years.

I certainly attempted to locate contrary books supporting the official 9/11 story, but the only one widely discussed was a rather short volume published by Popular Mechanics magazine, whose lead researcher turned out to be the cousin of Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff. None of the writers appeared to have any serious academic credentials, and they seemed to generally ignore or deflect some of the strongest pieces of evidence provided by the numerous scholars and experts involved in the 9/11 Truth movement. Hence, I hardly found their analysis persuasive, and half-wondered whether Homeland Security had quietly arranged the publication, which might help explain the extremely odd nepotistic coincidence. Popular magazines simply do not carry the scientific weight of research professors at major universities. Perhaps the holes in the official 9/11 narrative were so numerous and large that no serious scholar could be found to defend it.

When utterly astonishing claims of an extremely controversial nature are made over a period of many years by numerous seemingly reputable academics and other experts, and they are entirely ignored or suppressed but never effectively refuted, reasonable conclusions seem to point in an obvious direction. Based on my very recent readings in this topic, the total number of separate near-fatal anomalies in the official 9/11 story has now grown enormously long, probably numbering in the many dozens. Most of these individual items seem reasonably likely and if we decide that even just two or three of them are correct, we must totally reject the narrative that so many of us have believed for so long. The numerous Griffin books, beginning with his important 2004 volume The New Pearl Harbor, provide a very helpful evolving compendium of these. Although they all contain a great deal of overlap I might emphasize Debunking 9/11 Debunking, a 2007 reply to the Popular Mechanics volume, and The New Pearl Harbor Revisited published in 2008 as among the more important ones. For those too cheap or impatient to click a button and order something from Amazon, I’m pleased to offer three of the shorter ones in my selection of Controversial HTML Books:

Now I am obviously just an amateur in the complex intelligence craft of extracting nuggets of truth from a mountain of manufactured falsehood. Although the arguments of the 9/11 Truth Movement seem quite persuasive to me, I would obviously feel much more comfortable if they were seconded by an experienced professional, such as a top CIA analyst. A few years ago, I was shocked to discover that was indeed the case.

William Christison had spent 29 years at the CIA, rising to become one of its senior figures as Director of its Office of Regional and Political Analysis, with 200 research analysts serving under him. In August 2006, he published a remarkable 2,700 word article explaining why he no longer believed the official 9/11 story and felt sure that the 9/11 Commission Report constituted a cover-up, with the truth being quite different. The following year, he provided a forceful endorsement to one of Griffin’s books, writing that “[There's] a strong body of evidence showing the official U.S. Government story of what happened on September 11, 2001 to be almost certainly a monstrous series of lies.” And Christison’s extreme 9/11 skepticism was seconded by that of many other highly-regarded former US intelligence officers.

We might expect that if a former intelligence officer of Christison’s rank were to denounce the official 9/11 report as a fraud and a cover-up, such a story would constitute front-page news. But it was never reported anywhere in our mainstream media, and I only stumbled upon it nearly a decade later.

Even nearly all of our supposed “alternative” media outlets were nearly as silent. Throughout the 2000s, Christison and his wife Kathleen, also a former CIA analyst, had been regular contributors to Counterpunch, publishing many dozens of articles there and certainly were its most highly-credentialed writers on intelligence and national security matters. But editor Alexander Cockburn refused to publish any of their 9/11 skepticism, so it never came to my attention at the time. Indeed, when I mentioned Christison’s views to current Counterpuncheditor Jeffrey St. Clair a couple of years ago, he was stunned to discover that the friend he had regarded so very highly had actually become a “9/11 Truther.” When media organs serve as ideological gatekeepers, widespread ignorance becomes unavoidable.

For those so interested, Christison’s 2006 article mentioned the strong evidence he found in a C-Span broadcast of a two-hour panel discussion on the September 11th terrorist attacks, and especially cited the documentary Loose Change as an excellent summary of many of the flaws in the official 9/11 case. The full “Final Cut” version of that film is conveniently available on YouTube:

With so many gaping holes in the official story of the events seventeen years ago, each of us is free to choose to focus on those we personally consider most extreme and obvious. Danish Chemistry professor Niels Harrit was one of the scientists who analyzed the debris of the destroyed buildings and detected the residual presence of nano-thermite, a military-grade explosive compound, and I found him quite credible during his hour long interview on Red Ice Radio. The notion that an undamaged hijacker passport was found in an NYC street after the massive, fiery destruction of the skyscrapers is totally absurd, as was the highly incriminating contents of the hijacker luggage recovered in a lost airline bag. And the testimonies of the dozens of firefighters who heard explosions just before the collapse of the buildings seems totally inexplicable under the official story. The sudden total collapse of Building Seven, never hit by any jetliners is also extremely implausible.

Let us now suppose that the overwhelming weight of evidence is correct, and concur with high-ranking former CIA intelligence analysts, distinguished academics, and experienced professionals that the 9/11 attacks were not what they appeared to be. We recognize the extreme implausibility that three huge skyscrapers in New York City suddenly collapsed at free-fall velocity into their own footprints after just two of them were hit by airplanes, and also that a large civilian jetliner probably did not strike the Pentagon leaving absolutely no wreckage and only a small hole. What actually did happen, and more importantly, who was behind it?

The first question is obviously impossible to answer without an honest and thorough official investigation of the evidence. In the absence of that, numerous, somewhat conflicting hypotheses have been advanced and debated within the confines of the 9/11 Truth community. But the second question is probably the more important and relevant one, and I think it has always represented a source of extreme vulnerability to 9/11 Truthers.

The most typical approach, as generally followed in the numerous Griffin books, is to avoid the issue entirely and focus solely on the gaping flaws in the official narrative. This is a perfectly acceptable position but leaves all sorts of serious doubts. What organized group would have been sufficiently powerful and daring to carry off an attack of such vast scale against the central heart of the world’s sole superpower? And how were they then able to orchestrate such a massively effective media and political cover-up, even enlisting the participation of the American government itself?

The much smaller slice of 9/11 Truthers who choose to address this “whodunit” question seem to be overwhelmingly concentrated among rank-and-file grassroots activists rather than the prestigious experts, and they usually answer “inside job!” Their widespread belief seems to be that the top political leadership of the Bush Administration, probably including Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, had organized the terrorist attacks, either with or without the knowledge of their nominal but ignorant superior, President George W. Bush. The suggested motives included justification for military attacks against various countries, supporting the financial interests of the powerful oil industry and military-industrial complex, and enabling the destruction of traditional American civil liberties. Since the vast majority of politically-active Truthers seem to come from the far left of the ideological spectrum, these sorts of notions seem logical and almost self-evident.

Although not explicitly endorsing those Truther conspiracies, filmmaker Michael Moore’s leftist box office hit Fahrenheit 9/11seemed to raise such similar suspicions. His small budget documentary earned an astonishing $220 million by suggesting that the very close business ties between the Bush family, Cheney, the oil companies, and the Saudis were responsible for the Iraq War aftermath of the terrorist attacks, with the domestic crackdown on civil liberties being part-and-parcel of the right-wing Republican agenda.

Unfortunately, this apparently plausible picture seems to have almost no basis in reality. During the drive to the Iraq War, I read Times articles interviewing numerous top oil men in Texas who expressed total puzzlement at why America was planning the attack, saying that they could only assume that President Bush knew something that they themselves did not. Saudi Arabian leaders were adamantly opposed to an American attack on Iraq, and made every effort to prevent it. Prior to his joining the Bush Administration, Cheney had served as CEO of Halliburton, an oil services giant, and his firm had heavily lobbied for the lifting of U.S. economic sanctions against Iraq. Prof. James Petras, a scholar of strong Marxist leanings, published an excellent 2008 book entitled Zionism, Militarism, and the Decline of US Power in which he conclusively demonstrated that Zionist interests rather than those of the oil industry had dominated the Bush Administration in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

As for Michael Moore’s film, I remember at the time sharing a laugh with a (Jewish) friend of mine, both of us finding it ridiculous that a government so overwhelmingly permeated by fanatically pro-Israel Neocons was being portrayed as in thrall to the Saudis. Not only did the plot of Moore’s film indicate the fearsome power of Jewish Hollywood, but its huge success demonstrated that most of the American public had apparently never heard of the Neocons.

Bush critics properly ridiculed the president for his tongue-tied statement that the 9/11 terrorists had attacked America “for its freedoms” and Truthers have reasonably branded as implausible the claims that the massive attacks were organized by a cave-dwelling Islamic preacher. But the suggestion that that they were led and organized by the top figures of the Bush Administration seems even more preposterous.

Cheney and Rumsfeld had both spent decades as stalwarts of the moderate pro-business wing of the Republican Party, each serving in top government positions and also CEOs of major corporations. The notion that they capped their careers by joining a new Republican administration in early 2001 and immediately began organizing a gigantic false-flag terrorist attack upon the proudest towers of our largest city together with our own national military headquarters, hoping to kill many thousands of Americans in the process, is too ridiculous to even be part of a leftist political satire.

Let’s step back a bit. In the entire history of the world, I can think of no documented case in which the top political leadership of a country launched a major false-flag attack upon its own centers of power and finance and tried to kill large numbers of its own people. The America of 2001 was a peaceful and prosperous country run by relatively bland political leaders focused upon the traditional Republican goals of enacting tax-cuts for the rich and reducing environmental regulations. Too many Truther activists have apparently drawn their understanding of the world from the caricatures of leftist comic-books in which corporate Republicans are all diabolical Dr. Evils, seeking to kill Americans out of sheer malevolence, and Cockburn was absolutely correct to ridicule them at least on that particular score.

Consider also the simple practicalities of the situation. The gigantic nature of the 9/11 attacks as postulated by the Truth movement would have clearly required enormous planning and probably involved the work of many dozens or even hundreds of skilled agents. Directing CIA operatives or special military units to organize secret attacks against civilian targets in Venezuela or Yemen is one thing, but ordering them to mount attacks against the Pentagon and the heart of New York City would be fraught with stupendous risk.

Bush had lost the popular vote in November 2000 and had only reached the White House because of a few dangling chads in Florida and the controversial decision of a deeply divided Supreme Court, so most of the American media regarded his new administration with considerable hostility for those reasons. If the first act of such a newly-sworn presidential team had been directing the CIA or the military to prepare attacks against New York City and the Pentagon, surely those orders would have been regarded as issued by a group of lunatics, and immediately leaked to the hostile national press.

The whole scenario of top American leaders being the masterminds behind 9/11 is beyond ridiculous, and those 9/11 Truthers who make or imply such claims—doing so without a single shred of solid evidence—have unfortunately played a major role in discrediting their entire movement. In fact, the common meaning of the “inside job” scenario is so patently absurd and self-defeating that one might even suspect that the claim was encouraged by those seeking to discredit the entire 9/11 Truth movement as a consequence.

On the other hand, it does seem entirely plausible that Cheney, Rumsfeld, and other top Bush leaders may have been manipulated into taking certain actions that inadvertently furthered the 9/11 plot, while a few lower-level Bush appointees might have been more directly involved, perhaps even as outright conspirators. But that is not the normal meaning of the “inside job” accusation.

So where do we now stand? It seems very likely that the 9/11 attacks were the work of an organization far more powerful and professionally-skilled than a rag-tag band of nineteen random Arabs armed with box-cutters, but also the attacks were clearly not the work of the American government itself. So who actually attacked our country on that fateful day seventeen years ago, killing thousands of our fellow citizens?

Effective intelligence operations are concealed in a hall of mirrors, often extremely difficult for outsiders to discern, and false-flag terrorist attacks certainly fall into this category. But applying a different metaphor, the complexities of such events may be seen as a Gordian Knot, almost impossible to disentangle, but which may sometimes easily be cut by asking the simple question “Who benefited?”

America and most of the world certainly did not, and the disastrous legacy of that fateful day have transformed our own society and much of the entire world. The endless American wars soon unleashed have already cost us many trillions of dollars and set our nation on the road to bankruptcy, while killing or displacing many millions of innocent Middle Easterners. Most recently, that flood of desperate refugees has begun engulfing Europe, and the peace and prosperity of that ancient continent is now under severe threat.

Our traditional civil liberties and constitutional protections have been drastically eroded, and our society placed on the road to becoming an outright police state, with American citizens now passively accepting unimaginable infringements on their personal freedoms, all originally begun under the guise of preventing terrorism.

I find it difficult to think of any country in the world that clearly gained as a result of the 9/11 attacks and America’s military reaction, with one single, solitary exception.

During 2000 and most of 2001, America was a peaceful prosperous country, but a certain small Middle Eastern nation had found itself in an increasingly desperate situation. Israel then seemed to be fighting for its life against the massive waves of domestic terrorism that constituted much of the Second Intifada.

According to many analysts, Ariel Sharon had deliberately provoked that Palestinian uprising in September 2000 by marching to the Temple Mount backed by a thousand armed police, and the resulting violence and polarization of Israeli society had successfully installed him as Prime Minister in early 2001. But once in office, his notoriously harsh measures failed to prevent a wave of continuing attacks, increasingly made by suicide-bombers, and there was a widespread opinion that the violence would soon trigger a huge outflow of Israeli citizens, perhaps producing a death-spiral for the Jewish state. Iraq, Iran, Libya, and other major Muslim powers were supporting the Palestinians with money, rhetoric, and sometimes even weapons, and it appeared that Israeli society was beginning to crumble. I remember hearing from some of my DC friends that numerous Israeli policy experts were suddenly seeking berths at Neocon thinktanks so that they could relocate to America.

Sharon was a notoriously bloody and reckless leader, with a long history of being willing to undertake strategic gambles of astonishing boldness, sometimes betting everything on a single roll of the dice. He had spent decades seeking the Prime Ministership, and having finally obtained it, he now had his back to the wall, with no obvious source of rescue in sight.

The 9/11 attacks changed everything. Suddenly the world’s sole superpower was fully mobilized against Arab and Muslim terrorist movements, especially those connected with the Middle East. Sharon’s close Neocon political allies in America used the unexpected crisis as an opportunity to seize control of America’s foreign policy and national security apparatus, with an NSA staffer later reporting that Israeli generals freely roamed the halls of the Pentagon without any security controls.

Meanwhile, the excuse of preventing domestic terrorism was used to implement newly centralized American police controls that were employed to harass or even shut down various anti-Zionist political organizations. One of the Israeli Mossad agents arrested by the police in New York City as he and his fellows were celebrating the 9/11 attacks and producing a souvenir film of the burning World Trade Center towers told the officers that “Terrorism is now America’s problem.” And so it immediately became.

General Wesley Clark reported that soon after the 9/11 attacks he was informed that a secret military plan had somehow come into being under which America would attack and destroy seven major Muslim countries over the next few years, including Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Libya, which coincidentally were all of Israel’s strongest regional adversaries and the leading supporters of the Palestinians. As America began to expend enormous oceans of blood and treasure attacking all of Israel’s enemies after 9/11, Israel itself no longer had as much need to do so, and partly as a consequence, almost no other nation in the world has so enormously improved its strategic and economic situation during the last seventeen years, even while a large fraction of the American population has become completely impoverished during that same period and our country burdened with an insurmountable national debt. A parasite can often grow fat even as its host suffers and declines.

As I have emphasized, for many years after the 9/11 attacks I paid little attention to its details and had only the vaguest notion that there existed an organized 9/11 Truth movement. But if someone had ever told me that the terrorist attacks had been false-flag events and someone other than Osama had been responsible, my immediate guess would have been Israel and its Mossad.

Certainly no other nation in the world can remotely match Israel’s track-record of remarkably bold high-level assassinations and false-flag attacks, terrorist and otherwise, against other countries, certainly including America and its military. Furthermore, the enormous dominance of Jewish and pro-Israel elements in the American establishment media and increasingly that of many other major countries in the West has long ensured that even when the solid evidence of such attacks were discovered, very few ordinary Americans would ever hear of them.

The pattern of behavior is really quite remarkable. During the 1940s, even prior to the establishment of the State of Israel, the various Zionist factions assassinated Lord Moyne, the British Minister for the Middle East and Count Folke Bernadotte, the UN Peace Negotiator, and made unsuccessful attempts to kill President Harry S. Truman and British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin, while even discussing the possible assassination of Prime Minister Winston Churchill. There seems considerable evidence that the Israeli Mossad subsequently played a central role in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy because of the enormous pressure he was applying to persuade Israel to abandon its nuclear weapons plans. Mossad defector Victor Ostrovsky warned the American government that Israel was planning to assassinate President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s due to the bitter conflict over financial aid, and apparently those warnings were taken seriously. As recently as 2012, the editor of the main Jewish newspaper in Atlanta publicly called for the assassination of President Barack Obama over his policy differences with Israel.

The history of military and terrorist attacks is even more striking. One of history’s largest terrorist attacks prior to 9/11 was the 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem by Zionist militants dressed as Arabs, which killed 91 people and largely destroyed the structure. In the famous Lavon Affair of 1954, Israeli agents launched a wave of terrorist attacks against Western targets in Egypt, intending to have them blamed on anti-Western Arab groups. In 1950, there are strong claims that Israeli Mossad agents launched a wave of false-flag terrorist bombings against Jewish targets in Baghdad, successfully using those violent methods to help persuade Iraq’s large thousand-year Jewish community to emigrate to the Jewish state. In 1967, Israel launched a deliberate air and sea attack against the U.S.S. Liberty, intending to leave no survivors, and ultimately killing or wounding over 200 American servicemen before word of the attack got out and it was called off.

The enormous extent of pro-Israel influence in world political and media circles meant that none of these brutal attacks ever drew serious retaliation, and in nearly all cases, they were quickly thrown down the memory hole, so that today probably no more than one in a hundred Americans is aware of them. Most of these secret attacks against American and other Western targets came to light due to chance circumstances, so we may easily suspect that many other attacks of a similar nature have never become part of the historical record.

Once we accept that the 9/11 attacks were probably a false-flag operation, an absolutely central clue to the likely perpetrators has been their extraordinary success in ensuring that such a gigantic wealth of enormously suspicious evidence has been totally ignored by virtually the entire American media, whether liberal or conservative, left-wing or right-wing.

The only other such extreme cases that come to my mind almost invariably involve either Jewish issues or Israel. For example, virtually no Americans are today aware of the close Nazi-Zionist economic partnership of the 1930s that was a crucial factor in the creation of the State of Israel. Similarly, although our Western media has enshrined it as one of the central events of the twentieth century, there seems a good likelihood that the Jewish Holocaust of the Second World War is either substantially or almost entirely fraudulent. Even highly successful false-flag terrorist operations will tend to leave behind many individual clues, and possessing the media power to cause this evidence to vanish from perceived reality is an extraordinarily useful tool for such situations.

Meanwhile, in the particular case at hand, the considerable number of zealously pro-Israel Neocons situated just beneath the public surface of the Bush Administration in 2001 would have greatly facilitated both the successful organization of the attacks and their effective cover-up and concealment, with Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, Scooter Libby, and Richard Perle merely among the most obvious names. Whether such individuals were knowing conspirators or merely had personal ties allowing them to be persuaded to take steps furthering the plot is entirely unclear.

Most of this information must surely be obvious within knowledgeable circles, and I strongly suspect that many individuals who had paid much greater attention than myself to the details of the 9/11 attacks may have quickly formed a tentative conclusion along these same times. But for obvious social and political reasons, there is an enormous reluctance to publicly point the finger of blame towards Israel on a matter of such enormous magnitude, so except for a few fringe activists here and there, they kept their suspicions to themselves and simply remained silent.

Meanwhile, the leaders of the 9/11 Truth movement probably feared they would be destroyed by media accusations of deranged anti-Semitism if they did expressed a whisper of such suspicions. This political strategy may have been necessary, but by failing to name any plausible culprit, they created a vacuum that was soon filled by “useful idiots” of the “inside job” persuasion, who pointed an accusing finger at Cheney and Rumfeld, and thereby did so much to discredit the entire 9/11 Truth movement.

This unfortunate conspiracy of silence finally ended in 2009 when Dr. Alan Sabrosky, former Director of Studies at the US Army War College, stepped forward and publicly declared that the Israeli Mossad had very likely been responsible for the 9/11 attacks, writing a series of columns on the subject, and eventually presenting his views in a number of media interviews, along with additional analyses.

Obviously, such explosive charges never reached the pages of my morning Times, but they did receive considerable transitory coverage in elements of the alternative media, and I remember seeing the links very prominently featured at Antiwar.com and widely discussed elsewhere. I had never previously heard of Sabrosky, so I consulted my archiving system and immediately discovered that he had a perfectly respectable record of publication on military affairs in mainstream foreign policy periodicals and had also held a series of academic appointments at prestigious institutions. Reading one or two of his articles on 9/11, I felt he made a rather persuasive case for Mossad involvement, with some of his information already known to me but much of it not.

Since I was very busy with my software work and had never spent any time investigating 9/11 or reading any of the books on the topic, my belief in his claims back then was obviously quite tentative. But now that I have finally looked into the topic in much greater detail and done a great deal of reading, I think it seems quite likely that his 2009 analysis was entirely correct.

I would particularly recommend his long 2011 interview on Iranian Press TV, which I first watched just a couple of days ago. He came across as highly credible and forthright in his claims:

Here’s a highly controversial clip from a much longer radio interview he did in 2010:

Sabrosky focused much attention upon a certain portion of a Dutch documentary film on the 9/11 attacks produced several years earlier. In one fascinating interview, a professional demolition expert named Danny Jowenko who was largely ignorant of the 9/11 attacks immediately identified the filmed collapse of WTC Building 7 as a controlled-demolition, and the remarkable clip was broadcast worldwide on Press TV and widely discussed on the Internet.

And by a very strange coincidence, just three days after Jowenko’s broadcast video interview had received such heavy attention, he had the misfortune to die in a frontal collision with a tree in Holland. I’d suspect that the community of professional demolition experts is a small one, and Jowenko’s surviving industry colleagues may have quickly concluded that bad luck might come to those who rendered controversial future opinions on the collapse of the three World Trade Center towers.

Meanwhile, the ADL soon mounted a huge and largely successful effort to have Press TV banned in the West for promoting “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories,” even persuading YouTube to entirely eliminate its huge video archive of its past shows.

Most recently, Dr. Sabrosky provided an hour-long presentation at this June’s Deep Truth video panel conference, during which he expressed considerable pessimism about America’s political predicament, and suggested that the Zionist control over our politics and media had grown even stronger over the last decade.

His discussion was soon rebroadcast by Guns & Butter, a prominent progressive radio program, which as a consequence was soon purged from its home station after seventeen years of great national popularity and strong listener support.

The late Alan Hart, a very distinguished British broadcast journalist and foreign correspondent, also broke his silence in 2010 and similarly pointed to the Israelis as the likely culprits in the 9/11 attacks, and those interested may wish to listen to his extended interview.

One of the first writers to explore this topic was journalist Christopher Bollyn, and the details contained in his long series of newspaper articles are often quoted by other researchers. In 2012, he gathered together this material and published it in the form of a book entitled Solving 9-11, thereby making his information on the possible role of the Israeli Mossad in the attacks available to a wider audience. However, his volume severely suffers from the typical lack of resources available to the writers on the political fringe, with very poor organization and frequent repetition of the same points due to its origins in a set of individual articles. So those who purchase it should be forewarned about these severe stylistic weaknesses.

Probably a much better compendium of the very extensive evidence pointing to the probable Israeli hand behind the 9/11 attacks has been more recently provided by French journalist Laurent Guyénot, both in his 2017 book JFK-9/11: 50 Years of the Deep State and also his 8,500 word article “9/11 was an Israeli Job” that is being published as a companion piece to this one. His background in 9/11 Truth issues vastly exceeds my own very limited investigation of the subject and he provides a far greater wealth of detail than I could possibly include in this simple summary. While I wouldn’t necessarily agree with all his claims and analysis, the overall account is certainly consistent with my own.

I think I might as well add a couple of nuggets of my own in support of the Israeli Mossad Hypothesis.

We would normally expect that terrorist attacks resulting in the complete destruction of three gigantic office buildings in New York City and an aerial assault on the Pentagon would be an operation of enormous size and scale, involving very considerable organizational infrastructure and manpower. Yet in the aftermath of the attacks, the US government undertook great efforts to locate and arrest the surviving Islamic conspirators, but scarcely managed to find a single one. Apparently, they had all died in the attacks themselves or otherwise simply vanished into thin air.

But oddly enough, without making much effort at all, the American government did quickly round up and arrest some 200 Israeli Mossad agents, many of whom had been based in exactly the same geographical locations as the purported 19 Arab hijackers. Furthermore, NYC police arrested some of these agents publicly celebrating the 9/11 attacks, while others were caught driving vans in the New York area containing explosives or their residual traces. Most of these Mossad agents refused to answer any questions, and many of those who did failed polygraph tests, but under political pressure all were eventually released and deported back to Israel.

There is also another fascinating tidbit that I have very rarely seen mentioned. One month after the 9/11 attacks, an Israeli intelligence officer and a local Jewish activist were caught attempting to sneak weapons and explosives into the Mexican Parliament building, a story that naturally produced several banner-headlines in leading Mexican newspapers at the time but which was totally ignored by the American media. Eventually, under massive political pressure, all charges were dropped and the Israeli agent deported back home. I remember first encountering this extremely suspicious incident in the early 2000s on an fringe Hispanic-activist website, and the scanned front pages of the Mexican newspapers reporting the dramatic events were once available elsewhere on the Internet, but after all these years I can no longer easily locate them. The details of this incident are obviously rather fragmentary and perhaps garbled, but certainly quite intriguing.

One might speculate that if Islamic terrorists had followed up their 9/11 attacks by also destroying the Mexican parliament building a month later, Latin American support for America’s military invasions in the Middle East would have been enormously greater. Furthermore, any scenes of such massive destruction in the Mexican capital by Arab terrorists would surely have been broadcast non-stop on Univision, America’s dominant Spanish-language network, fully solidifying Hispanic support for President Bush’s military endeavors.

I must once again emphasize that my expertise on 9/11 issues is extremely limited and I doubt that I’ve spent more than just a few weeks of my total time reading and researching that complex topic, most of that only very recently. I am sure that numerous readers far more knowledgeable than myself will notice various serious errors in my discussion and generously assist in correcting those. Furthermore, my preparation of this analysis was unfortunately cut short by the approach of an particular anniversary date, so that under different circumstances my presentation would have been far more complete and more polished. But I felt there would be some benefits in making this material immediately available to others, even though many might already be familiar with most or all of this information.

Readers should therefore regard this as a preliminary version of my article, which I may render into a more polished form within the next couple of days, a practice that I have never previously followed.

"American Pravda: 9/11 Conspiracy Theories" (Unz).  "9/11 Was an Israeli Job" (Guyénot) (too much 'truther' crap, the best of which only proves Khazar foreknowledge, an issue which isn't in doubt).  There are two big problems with this, one rhetorical, and one based on the mechanics of any possible conspiracy, based on years of examples of conspiracies that we have all seen.  The rhetorical problem is, again, that this kind of speculation plays right into the hands of the supremacist Khazars, who will say 'see, the goyim keep making up these ridiculous lies against us based solely on their irrational Jew-hatred, meaning that anything else they say about us, including, say, any criticisms of what Israel is doing to the Palestinians, or criticisms of the constant warmongering to trick Americans into fighting Wars For The Jews, is similarly motivated and suspect!'  The conspiracy problem is that there is no evidence that the Jews had sufficient control over the gatekeepers like NORAD, control which would have been required for the whole conspiracy to work.  There is lots of evidence of Jewish/Israeli foreknowledge of 9/11, but 9/11 had to be an inside job of the American government at many levels, which had more to do with deep structural/spiritual problems within Assholia (and failure to admit these problems leads to typical Assholian lack of discipline in analyzing the real problem).  And again, criticizing without hard evidence just plays into their hands and allows them to deflect all criticism of what we all know they are actually doing.  The Unz essay is particularly clumsy (he's promising possibly to rewrite it), where the 'turn' in the argument - where he moves from setting up the conclusion to the conclusion itself - is very weak:
"Cheney and Rumsfeld had both spent decades as stalwarts of the moderate pro-business wing of the Republican Party, each serving in top government positions and also CEOs of major corporations. The notion that they capped their careers by joining a new Republican administration in early 2001 and immediately began organizing a gigantic false-flag terrorist attack upon the proudest towers of our largest city together with our own national military headquarters, hoping to kill many thousands of Americans in the process, is too ridiculous to even be part of a leftist political satire.

Let’s step back a bit. In the entire history of the world, I can think of no documented case in which the top political leadership of a country launched a major false-flag attack upon its own centers of power and finance and tried to kill large numbers of its own people."
What Unz calls "too ridiculous to even be part of a leftist political satire" I consider to be normal operating procedure in the Assholian government, with many, many examples.  Still, Unz at his worst still has his moments (and note that he points out that American authorities could easily arrest the real perps of the anthrax attacks if they wanted to, as identifying them is a no-brainer):
". . . the complete ideological triumph of the Neocons after the 9/11 attacks was all the more shocking given their recent political missteps. During the 2000 presidential campaign, nearly all of the Neocons had aligned themselves with Sen. John McCain, whose battle with Bush for the Republican nomination had eventually turned quite bitter, and as a consequence, they had been almost totally frozen out of high-level appointments. Both Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld were then widely regarded as Bush Republicans, lacking any significant Neocon ties, and the same was true for all the other top administration figures such as Colin Powell, Condeleeza Rice, and Paul O’Neil. Indeed, the only Neoconservative figure offered a Cabinet spot was Linda Chavez, and not only was the Labor Department always regarded as something of a boobie prize in a GOP Administration, but she was ultimately forced to withdraw her nomination due to her “nanny problems.” The highest-ranking Neocon serving under Bush was Rumsfeld Deputy Paul Wolfowitz, whose seemingly inconsequential appointment had been almost totally ignored by everyone.

Most of the Neocons themselves certainly seemed to recognize the catastrophic defeat they had suffered in the 2000 election. Back in those days, I was on very friendly terms with Bill Kristol, and when I stopped by his office at the Weekly Standard for a chat in the spring of 2001, he seemed in a remarkably depressed state of mind. I remember that at one point, he took his head in his hands and wondered whether it was time for him to just abandon the political battle, resigning his editorship and taking up a quiet post at a DC thinktank. Yet just eight or ten months later, he and his close allies were on their way to gaining overwhelming influence in our government, an eirie parallel to Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Lenin in Zurich. The totally fortuitous 9/11 attacks and the outbreak of war had suddenly allowed a small but committed ideological faction to seize control of a gigantic country."
and (if you've read this blog, which most of my critics clearly haven't, you will know I've been droning on about as cruise missile fired from Fort Meade or Andrews Air Force Base for years):
"In addition, an old friend of mine with strong connections to elite French circles at some point shared what he regarded as an amusing anecdote. He mentioned that at a private dinner party in Paris attended by influential political and media figures, France’s former Defense Minister had told the other disbelieving guests that the Pentagon had been struck by a missile rather than a civilian jetliner. My friend explained that the minister in question was widely regarded as extremely intelligent and level-headed, thereby proving that even the most highly reputable individuals may sometimes believe in utterly crazy things.

But I interpreted those same facts very differently. France probably possessed one of the four or five best intelligence service in the world, and surely a French Defense Minister would be privy to better information about true events than a typical media pundit. In fact, one of the earliest books sharply questioning the official 9/11 narrative was 9/11: The Big Lie by French journalist Thierry Meyssan, which appeared in 2002 and similarly argued that the Pentagon had been struck by a missile, perhaps suggesting that it may have been partly influenced by leaks coming from French Intelligence."
Now, this is good, really good, the kind of analysis I'd like to see more of, comparing the attacks on American legislatures, and the 'unity' it provokes, to a similar issue in Canada:  "9/11 Truth: War on Terror or “War on Democracy”? The Physical Intimidation of Legislatures" (McQueen) (my emphasis in red): --xymphora

"..... The fall of 2001

A. The 9/11 Events:

I begin with the attacks of September 11, 2001, crucial to the War on Terror.

Most of you remember these events and are aware of how shocking they were to the general population in North America. But perhaps you do not all recall the nature of the shock delivered to Congress.

Democrat Tom Daschle, who was Senate Majority Leader on September 11, 2001, recalls being at the Capitol with other members of Congress when the assaults on the Twin Towers took place. He watched them on television like most Americans, as stunned and puzzled as anyone. But his television viewing was interrupted when a guard ran into the room and announced that there was a plane headed toward the Capitol and that an immediate evacuation of the building was necessary.

This was, says Daschle, the first time in history the entire U.S. Capitol had been evacuated. There appears to have been no clear protocol. Daschle says it was a scene of “total chaos.” Elected representatives, both senators and members of the House, fled in confusion. Many had difficulty getting reliable information about what was happening and did not know what to do or where to go.

This was a frightened and intimidated legislature.

Later in the day, when things in Washington had settled down somewhat, many of those who had fled reassembled on the steps of the Capitol building. A few brief speeches were made, after which, as we can see and hear in precious video footage, members of Congress broke into a singing of God Bless America, followed by emotional embraces.

He is saying: “We, Republicans and Democrats, House and Senate, stand strongly united behind the President and will work together to ensure that the full resources of the government are brought to bear.”Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, Democrat, at the podium on the steps of the Capitol, Sept. 11, 2001, just before the singing of God Bless America. He is saying: “We, Republicans and Democrats, House and Senate, stand strongly united behind the President and will work together to ensure that the full resources of the government are brought to bear.”

A powerful feeling of unity is evident in the record of this event. Tom Daschle said that he had never in his life experienced the sense of unity he felt on September 11, 2001. Like others on the steps of the Capitol that evening, he seems to have been almost euphoric. We were, he says, one family.

I draw your attention to the emergence of a pattern that is common in societies experiencing danger and that characterizes affected populations in the War on Terror.

First, there is the sense of threat. The population then goes through a phase of intense, felt unity. Party loyalties and ideological divides are cast aside. There are solemn declarations, there is singing, there is the calling down of blessings on the nation, there is hugging and there are tears.

I am not mocking members of Congress, or any other group that unites under threat. This seems to be an aspect of our nature as human beings. But bear in mind that while these social adjustments may help a society gear up for a response to an attack, they can also leave a population vulnerable to manipulation. At such moments dissent is discouraged and critical thinking is in short supply. Passion and calls for loyalty are the order of the day.

The consequences can be very serious.

Bush (Republican, President) embracing Daschle (Democrat, Senate Majority Leader).

The photograph of George W. Bush and Tom Daschle, top Republican and top Democrat, embracing shortly after 9/11, tells the story. The act is a symbolic statement of unity, but like many symbolic statements it tells us a tale with very practical implications.

The U.S. Constitution gives to Congress the power to declare war. Aware of the desirability of involving Congress, the White House immediately took advantage of the shock delivered by 9/11 and asked Congress for a bill explicitly allowing the President to use armed force in response to the attacks. Tom Daschle was one of the few people who could have stopped such a bill. The Democrats had a majority in Senate and he, as Senate Majority Leader, could have urged them to vote as a bloc against the bill. But the hug indicates, the sense of being one family, the feeling of unity, was strong. Not only did Daschle not rise to the occasion and oppose such a bill, he immediately offered to put it forward, thus guaranteeing its acceptance.

This extremely dangerous legislation, “Authorization for Use of Military Force, 2001” was proposed to and passed by both House and Senate on September 14, 2001. There was only one vote against the bill—by Barbara Lee, later Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. The bill provided cover for the immediate invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and simultaneous preparations for the invasion of Iraq. It also handed to Bush the power to decide who was responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Remember: people who want war may purposely create a sense of threat and a feeling of unity. And they will typically do so in order to achieve a particular reaction. This is the triad I am drawing your attention to: Threat, Unity, Reaction.

The reaction may express itself outwardly in foreign policy or inwardly in domestic policy. Frequently, the outward and inward moves are simultaneous. Outwardly, the enraged nation throws itself on the nation or group it decides was responsible for the attack. Inwardly, the population agrees that this is a time for unity, not a time for debate and dissent but for gathering as one people, with the surrender of individual freedoms and civil rights as needed to mobilize for violence.

We do not need to speculate about whether this condition was achieved in the American people on 9/11. A poll was initiated on that very day, in the evening of 9/11. (Washington Post-ABC). According to those who conducted the poll, nearly nine in ten Americans supported military action against whoever was responsible for the attacks and two out of three Americans were willing to surrender civil liberties to fight terrorism.

Now, you may be thinking, what’s the big deal? The threat-unity-response triad makes sense: an attacked group unites and, when united, acts to deal with a serious threat. The triad is compatible with the official story of 9/11 and does not by itself mean that dissenters are right and that the day’s events were an inside operation.

You would be right in thinking that I have said nothing to this point that indicates the official story of 9/11 is false. My preliminary aim has been simply to point to the triad, which becomes visible again and again in the War on Terror—and to emphasize how populations and their elected representatives may, at such times, be vulnerable to manipulation.

Now, if we wish to go further and ask if 9/11 was a fraud we will need to look at the evidence. This is not difficult: fourteen years of research by a wide variety of people has given us plenty of evidence. In today’s talk, however, I am discussing four events, and I have little time to discuss details of 9/11. So let me restrict myself to a few brief comments.

Many of you will know, if you have looked into this issue even superficially, that the destruction of the World Trade Center, and especially of three buildings (WTC 1, 2 and 7), is regarded by many of us as providing the strongest evidence against the official account. I realize that many people “tune out” when building collapses are discussed (inner voice: “What do I know about buildings? My God, I hope they aren’t going to ask me to remember my high school physics!”).

But there are very good reasons to pay attention to the destruction of these buildings. Covert operations are typically characterized not only by lying, but by the laying down of false trails and the creation of pseudo-mysteries and diversion. So complex and contradictory is the evidence encountered that it is very often difficult to prove an event was based on deception even when we feel sure this is the case. When we do get such proof it makes sense to try to persuade people to look at it. The destruction of the WTC buildings is one such instance. In my view the official explanations of their destruction have been provento be false. If you wish to read an admirable summary of the evidence against the official account of the WTC destruction, I refer you to a recent publication that can be obtained from the website of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. It is entitled, Beyond Misinformation: What Science Says About the Destruction of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7.

As this publication makes clear, the official account of the destruction of these buildings is based on repeated violations of the laws of physics and of basic principles of scientific investigation and thought. In contrast, the hypothesis that the three buildings were brought down by planted explosives and other agents of destruction is robustly supported. Evidence against the official account and in favor of the dissident account is copious, varied, and mutually corroborating.

The North Tower being demolished on 9/11.

But if these three buildings were brought down not by plane strikes but by controlled demolition, through preparations made well before the attacks, this means that the entire official narrative is false and the founding event in the War on Terror is a fraud. Moreover, since discovering that the official account is false is not actually difficult, we must assume that the U.S. government agencies that promote the fraudulent event, including the FBI, are aware of the fraud and have been engaged in a major cover-up. They are, at the very least, accessories after the fact.

Let me sum up my observations and claims to this point:
  1. Observation: there is a taboo in place in Canada (as in the U.S.) that punishes people, including members of Parliament, who raise questions about the FBI account of 9/11.
  2. Observation: a familiar pattern of human history becomes clear to those who study the 9/11 event: threatleads to feelings of unity, and feelings of unity facilitate and shape the reaction: (a) the sacrifice civil rights at home and (b) a willingness to use force against a perceived enemy.
  3. Observation: In the case of the 9/11 event in the U.S. the reaction phase encouraged (a) a willingness at home to surrender traditional rights and freedoms and (b) a willingness to use military force abroad.
  4. Claim: the 9/11 attacks were not carried out by Islamic extremists but were managed from within the U.S. to manipulate the population and to intimidate the U.S. Congress into supporting the reaction desired by the perpetrators.
B. The 2001 Anthrax attacks:

Very shortly after the 9/11 attacks there was a second set of attacks in the U.S. Envelopes containing deadly anthrax spores were sent through the mail.

This set of attacks appeared at the time to be the second punch in a one-two punch attack. After all, the attacks began a mere week after 9/11 and the perpetrators clearly wanted to be seen as the same Muslim extremists who had carried out the first attack.

Here, for example, is the letter sent to Senator Tom Daschle:

Note the date, 9/11, at the top. Note the attempt to look like a Anthrax note
Muslim extremist. Most of the U.S. population assumed this was, indeed, a second blow by the same Muslim extremists alleged to have carried out the 9/11 attacks. We know this from a poll carried out in mid-October, 2001.

What were the effects of the anthrax attacks and who was the perpetrator?

The main effect was to keep up the momentum established by the 9/11 attacks. The external aspect of the reaction to 9/11 was directed toward those thought responsible: this reaction supported the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. The first bombs were dropped on Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, two days after the first death in the U.S. from anthrax. The anthrax attacks kept al-Qaeda and Afghanistan in the crosshairs.

And as October of 2001 progressed another possible perpetrator appeared on the scene. According to this hypothesis al-Qaeda was providing the foot-soldiers—the people who wrote the letters and mailed them—but the sophisticated anthrax spores had to have been produced by a state, which was collaborating with al-Qaeda in this deadly attack.

The enemy state was said to be Iraq.

The Iraq hypothesis flourished briefly in October and November of 2001 in partnership with the al-Qaeda hypothesis. During that period, as the invasion of Afghanistan proceeded, support was given to preparations for the invasion of Iraq.

But I spoke earlier of a pattern, and the pattern includes not only attack on enemy states but also sacrifice of civil rights at home. Here is where the anthrax attacks scored their biggest victory.

Attorney General John Ashcroft had introduced what would later be called the Patriot Act shortly after 9/11 and had made it clear to Congress that he wanted it passed immediately. But there was resistance. Both the population at large and Congress began to recover from the 9/11 attacks, and as they did so their willingness to sacrifice civil rights began to diminish. The anthrax attacks saved the day for Ashcroft by ensuring that both population and Congress remained sufficiently intimidated to accept the Patriot act. The act was passed on October 26, 2001. The connection between its passage and the anthrax attacks is very clear.

There were two powerful Democratic senators whose actions were slowing down passage of the Patriot Act. One was Tom Daschle, whom I have mentioned previously. The second was Patrick Leahy, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Anthrax letters were sent out to Daschle and Leahy immediately after they resisted a deadline for passage of the bill proposed by Vice-President Dick Cheney.

How odd that al-Qaeda and Iraq would have had a special hatred of Democratic senators who slowed down the Patriot Act!

But, of course, the anthrax letters were not sent by al-Qaeda and Iraq. According to what we have since learned, no Muslim had anything whatsoever to do with the attacks.

If you want to know more about this topic, please read my book, The 2001 Anthrax Deception. Since the publication of that book there have been further developments, including the emergence of a highly placed FBI whistle-blower, that have supported the book’s claims.

What do we know about the perpetrators? Studies of the physical characteristics of the anthrax spores quickly ruled out al-Qaeda and Iraq as sources of these spores and showed that the anthrax came from a highly secure laboratory within the U.S. military-industrial complex. This is not controversial, having been acknowledged by the FBI, the White House and the Department of Homeland Security. 

So the perpetrators were not Muslim extremists but they pretended to be, and whoever they were they had access to the heart of the U.S. intelligence and military community. It is, therefore, clear that the anthrax attacks were an “inside job” and a “false flag operation.”

The true perpetrators are still at large, the FBI having led the public on a multi-year wild goose chase.

As far as the intimidation of Congress is concerned, the process stared with 9/11 but was continued by means of the anthrax attacks. Concrete barricades and yellow crime scene tape marked off the Capitol. Congress members were told by the FBI not to wear their Congressional pins publicly or to use their Congressional license plates. They were told they must hide their identities as elected representatives.

When Tom Daschle’s office received an anthrax letter in mid-October the stuff was so sophisticated it contaminated the whole building. The Hart Senate building was closed down for several months while it was cleaned. Some senators remained without computer access and proper office space as the Patriot Act was being pushed through. The anthrax attacks ensured that the passage of the Patriot Act took place in an atmosphere of urgent and ongoing threat to Congress.

Now, note that the lies pushed in October-November of 2001 to frame Afghanistan and Iraq for the anthrax attacks (Iraq as sponsor, al-Qaeda as client) belonged to the same repository of lies that was used over a period of years to justify the 2003 attack on Iraq. The two main deceptions were (a) that Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction” and (b) that Iraq was a sponsor of al-Qaeda.

The Centre for Public Integrity in the U.S. did a study a few years ago of these two sets of false statements. The study found that during the two years following 9/11 top Bush officials made 935 false statements on these two topics.

When Colin Powell gave his deceptive performance before the UN Security Council just before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, holding up his little vial of simulated anthrax, he was still making these two sets of false statements and he was still warning the world that Iraq might attack the U.S. with anthrax.


"Facts That Disprove the Official 9/11 White House “Conspiracy Theory”: Why Are Good Americans Silent?

by Dr. Gary G. Kohls

Over the past 17 years since 9/11/01, the title question has plagued the tens of thousands of committed groups of highly intelligent and thorough truth-seeking scientists, physicists, architects, engineers, pilots, ex-military officers, ex-intelligence agents, firefighters, demolition experts, psychologists, medical professionals, etc, etc who have absolute proof that the official Cheney/Bush White House story about what happened on 9/11/01 was a “Big Lie”, that was so easily perpetrated on a fearful, gullible and mainstream media-saturated public that was very willing to suspend their critical thinking skills and throw their trust onto authority figures that would tell them what they were supposed to believe, even if it was contrary to what they actually saw with their own eyes. Unfortunately, those pseudo-authority figures that have the power to dominate the media, also have a long history of being serial liars – and they have hidden ulterior motives and a willing mainstream media machine on which to perpetuate the lies. 

Millions of clear-headed people all over the world have gradually begun to disbelieve the Big Lies about 9/11 and have started to pay attention to the evidence that disproves the lies, even though they are big ones. The truth has a way of getting out – albeit usually too slowly – and thus these truth-seekers have seen through the propaganda that launched and perpetuated the lies.  These clear-headed folks, with the unassailably truthful facts on their sides – all easily provable in a court of law – are naturally wondering what is going on with the perpetuation of the White House 9/11 Myths, and why has the truth been forbidden to be spoken of in average newspapers and media outlets like the ones in my home town?

Billions have seen the suffering, despair and slaughter of innocent Muslim women, children and old men that have been driven from their homes by US soldiers and their lethal high-tech weaponry.

Observers with open eyes and open hearts have seen the rape, pillage, plunder, deaths and decapitations (documented following US drone strikes and mortar attacks) of innocents, families, tribes, cultures, societies, religious sects and infrastructure, predictably provoking violent reprisals (including retaliatory beheadings) from justifiably angry victim-members of the invaded homeland who naturally desire revenge and retaliation against the homicidal “christian” invaders and occupiers that drew “first blood”.

Qui Bono (Who Benefitted)?

Many observers know the names of the military, economic, corporate and political entities that were the beneficiaries from the post-9/11 wars. Those wars lavishly enriched them all, but it was at the expense of the doomed, deceived and psychologically deadened boots on the ground that did the dirty work for the perpetrators, all of whom were safely back in America orchestrating the chaos.
Many of us know the names of the war-profiteering oil cartels, weapons manufacturers, gun runners, the rent-a-mercenary corporations and all the other multinational and American corporations that enjoyed huge stock market gains back then – not just from the wars but also from the rumors of war – again at the expense of the soldiers and the deceived and pseudo-patriotic citizens watching the exciting carnage on TV.

The American Empire, the Pentagon, Full Spectrum Domination, “The New Pearl Harbor” and “Corporate Personhood”

A few observers also saw the connections between the pro-corporate, proto-fascist think tanks of the past few decades that include this short list of easily recognizable NeoConservative groups: Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute, American Conservative Union, Americans for Tax Reform, American Legislative Exchange Council, American Family Association, the Chamber of Commerce, Christian Coalition of America, Club for Growth, Eagle Forum, Family Research Council, National Taxpayers Union, the various pro-Israel lobby groups, among about 800 others. And, of course, neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party are innocent in the active participation in the post-9/11 war-mongering activities.

Full Spectrum Domination for the US, Facilitated by a “New Pearl Harbor”

The leaders of the think tanks represented by the above short list seem to be peopled largely by draft-dodging Chicken Hawk insiders from the Cheney/Bush administration – that are consistently pushing for American military and economic hegemony abroad. The type of hegemony in secretly called “Full Spectrum Domination”, which seems to be the operating principle that every Pentagon subsidiary endorses and which is pushed by every talking head retired general on Fox TV that has undeclared financial ties to the weapons industry that will automatically prosper in any perpetual war or “rumor of war” scenario.

Many of the Cheney-Bush insiders that gained tremendous political power after the stolen election in 2000 were members or had close connections to the nefarious Project for the New American Century – PNAC – that published in its manifesto “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force” exactly one year prior to 9/11/01. The following indicting sentence from their manifesto reveals its intent: “the process of transformation (i.e., achieving full spectrum planetary dominance by the US military), even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor“. It doesn’t take a genius to decide what group should be at the top of the list when the international war crimes tribunal starts to subpoena people to testify.

Interested in knowing who are the folks from PNAC? Immediately below, Pilots for 911 Truth has provided us with a list of the operatives that deserve to have their day in court to clear their names. They will have some pretty tough explaining to do. Check this out for much more. Here is the short list:
Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton, Scooter Libby, Richard Armitage, Richard Perle, Dov Zakheim, Gary Bauer, William Kristol, William Bennett, Norman Podhoretz, Jeanne Kirkpatrick, James Woolsey, Robert Bork’s daughter Ellen, Charles Krauthammer, Jeb Bush, Steve Forbes, Rudy Boschwitz and Vin Weber. No progressives were members of this NeoConservative think tank. (You can see the rest of the list of Republican members here). 
Fair-minded readers will agree that it is extremely important that voting Americans be mindful that every future election will be targeted by the NeoConservative 9/11 planners (including the old members of the PNAC noted above) that continue to actively work to achieve and maintain not only foreign, but also domestic full spectrum domination in the White House, the Supreme Court, the Senate and the House of Representatives as well as in all the state legislatures.

Most of PNAC’s blind supporters (mostly GOP voters) happen to be pro-war, climate-change deniers, supporters of polluting corporations (that they probably own stock in) and are quite willing to risk the destruction of the planet if profits can be made – thus ignoring the suffering of the “non-believers” whom the radical religious right-wing truly believe will be “left behind” to suffer and burn after the “Rapture” lifts the true believers to heaven.

It doesn’t look good for democracy if punitive, compassionless politicians and their cunning psychopathic corporate paymasters are to gain total control in what is shaping up to be a rolling, coup d’etat that was dramatically facilitated by the 2016 election of the sociopathic, historically-illiterate Donald J. Trump. (Recall that sociopathic, non-human corporations were deemed by the Supreme Court to have the same rights and privileges of actual persons – but few of the responsibilities – in the Citizens United vs. the FEC ruling in 2010.

9/11 Truth-seekers and Many Eye-Witnesses are Willing and Eager to Testify Before an International Criminal Court

Many of the members of the 911 Truth-seeking groups listed in paragraph one above are articulate, highly intelligent, scientifically and historically astute, very professional, and are not totally unselfish in their concern over the future of America and the earth. They want a truly independent commission with subpoena power to get to the bottom of what really happened on 9/11/01.

A multitude of experts are ready to be subpoenaed and to testify about the science of controlled demolition, the impossibility of office fires or even jet plane impacts in bringing down massively steel-reinforced concrete skyscrapers and the impossibility of amateur Cessna pilots flying commercial jets, much less guiding them into buildings at high speed.

Hundreds of well-informed eye-witnesses are ready to testify about the multiple explosions that they heard both prior to the plane’s impacts into the two twin towers and also the multiple explosions just prior to the freefall collapse of each of the three skyscrapers, 1, 2 and 7 as the disintegrated into fine powder and fell directly into their footprints in less than 12 seconds.

Three thousand professional architects and engineers who know everything there is to know about the construction and demolition of high-rise, steel-reinforced skyscrapers maintain a comprehensive website. (Google it at www.ae911truth.org for everything one needs to know about what really happened on 9/11/01.) These professionals are willing to testify about the robust construction of the three over-engineered WTC towers that were each designed to withstand jet airliner impacts and office fires without falling down. These professionals will testify about the impossibility of the absurd official Cheney/Bush White House “pancake theory” and the fact that the ONLY WAY to bring down steel-reinforced skyscrapers is by controlled demolition by highly trained teams of demolition experts.

Professionals with various areas of expertise are ready to testify to the impossibility of a 100,000 pound aluminum commercial jet with a 124 foot wing-span and 44 foot high tail section disappearing into the Pentagon through a 16-foot diameter hole in its outer wall, leaving no debris on the unscathed lawn outside the wall. These professionals are especially eager to question the total disappearance of the two virtually indestructible titanium engines that left no holes and broke no windows in the Pentagon’s outer ring. And they will question why the 80+ video-cameras all around the Pentagon were confiscated immediately by the FBI and still have not been released to the public.

The obvious conclusion: no 757 hit the Pentagon; therefore a remote-controlled military missile likely did the damage.

Experienced pilots and on-the-ground eyewitnesses are ready to testify about the impossibility of a commercial jet disappearing into a 15 foot-wide smoking slit at Shanksville, PA, with no plane parts, no debris, no luggage, no body parts, and no frantic search and rescue at the site, proving that no jet plane crash had occurred there, contrary to what was portrayed in the fictitious Hollywood movie, Flight 93. The Shanksville site now has a national monument that is obviously designed to perpetuate the Big Lie.

Scientists and communication experts are ready to testify to the fact that the cell phone calls from flight 93 were hoaxes, only partly because it was impossible to have made cell phone calls from a 2001 phone from a jet traveling 500 miles per hour at 30,000 feet.

Patriotic 9/11 truth-tellers – typically unfairly painted as being unpatriotic – have been marginalized as “conspiracy theorists” by truth-obscurers in order to discredit and demean them and their unwelcome message.

Being ”Good Germans” Means Believing in the Validity of “My Country, Right or Wrong” Patriotism

The ethically invalid belief in “my country, right or wrong” patriotism – a common American trait – was also fervently believed by most patriotic “Good Germans” during Hitler’s 12 year-long “Thousand-year Reich”. Not wanting to come face-to-face with unpleasant truths about the criminality of police state fascism, most Good Germans (essentially 100% “christians”), contrary to what Jesus would have wanted them to do, (i.e., resist tyranny, but by nonviolent means).

Unfortunately, most Good German “christians” preferred to maintain their silence (and ignorance) about what the Nazis were doing in their name.

Most Good German christians did not want to know about the atrocities that their soldier sons were committing in the invaded and occupied territories during WWII, and they felt threatened by the whistle-blowers who were asking questions. Thus most Good Germans stayed in denial about the Jewish Holocaust and the death camps, despite the cattle car caravans that always came back empty of their human cargo. They stayed silent about the over-powering stench of burning flesh that was so prominent in the smoke that was coming out of the barbed-wire enclosed extermination camp stacks.

Those who questioned Hitler’s white supremacist henchmen about the “theories” of mass exterminations might have been labeled as “conspiracy theorists” if the Gestapo had ever thought of such a cunning concept.

The CIA’s Invention of the “Conspiracy Theorist” Smear Campaign to Discredit Dissenters

In his 2013 book, Conspiracy Theory in America, author Lance deHaven-Smith traced the term “conspiracy theory” back to a CIA propaganda campaign that was designed to discredit doubters of the Warren Commission’s fake search into who assassinated President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The use of the pejorative term is obviously a tactic to shame and humiliate those who saw through the ulterior motives of the commission, and thus effectively censor out or even banish anyone who questions an official government account.

The Warren Commission, to its eternal shame, ignored the testimony of a multitude of eye witnesses to the crime that proved that there were shooters both behind and in front of Kennedy’s motorcade. Many witnesses, none of whom were called to testify, heard shots coming from the grassy knoll in front of the motorcade. Their testimony was unwanted and therefore ignored. The “Lone Gunman” account was preferred by the true orchestrators of the Kennedy assassination as being easier to explain and defend even though it was just another Big Lie that was designed to obfuscate the truth.

One of those 1963 eye-witnesses in Dallas, Texas was an emergency room physician that attended Kennedy’s dying body. He would have testified to the commission that there was a tiny entry wound in JFK’s throat as well as a large exit wound that blew off the back of his head (depositing a chunk of his brain on the trunk of the limousine – which Jackie Kennedy was filmed retrieving in the famous film of the assassination by Abraham Zapruder).

Anyone with discerning eyes who watched the film saw JFK’s head being thrown violently backwards from the head shot, thus proving that that shot had come from the front (as did the neck shot), thus disproving the single shooter theory and proving that the assassination of JFK was indeed a conspiracy (i.e., more than one entity plotting the evil deed).

Hence the CIA’s cunning ploy (frequently using the pejorative “conspiracy theorist” term) to discredit those who had taken on as their duty to question what was indeed another of the Big Lies that regularly come from political entities that want our trust and votes. Big Lies also come in advertising campaigns from corporations that want our trust and money; from government and military entities that want our taxes, trust and allegiance; and from the for-profit media entities that want our trust and purchases. All those entities were somehow involved in the crime – and the cover-up – of the events of 9/11/01.

Both the Warren Commission and the 9/11 Commission were, in effect, saying:
“Hey you American idiots, listen up. How many times do we have to tell you that this case is closed? We got our crazed lone gunmen; now just be obedient Good Americans and resume your brain-numbing shopping, amusements, celebrity worship and vegetating on the couch cheering for your favorite professional football, baseball, hockey or basketball team. 
“Just move on. There’s nothing to see here.”


"Government Hid and Destroyed 9/11 Evidence

September 9, 2016

Source: Washington's Blog

Presumption of a Cover-Up …

Judges and lawyers know that – if someone intentionally destroys evidence – he’s probably trying to hide his crime. American law has long recognized that destruction of evidence raises a presumption of guilt for the person who destroyed the evidence.

So what does it mean when the US government intentionally destroyed massive amounts of evidence related to 9/11?

Judge and Prosecutor Destroy Evidence

For example, it was revealed in May that the judge overseeing the trial of surviving 9/11 suspects conspired with the prosecution to destroy evidence relevant to a key suspect’s defense. And see this

(The Defense Department has also farmed out most of the work of both prosecuting and defending the surviving 9/11 suspects to the same private company. And the heads of the military tribunal prosecuting the 9/11 suspects said that the trials must be rigged so that there are no acquittals.)

Destruction of Videotapes

The CIA videotaped the interrogation of 9/11 suspects, falsely told the 9/11 Commission that there were no videotapes or other records of the interrogations, and then illegally destroyed all of the tapes and transcripts of the interrogations.

9/11 Commission co-chairs Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton wrote:
Those who knew about those videotapes — and did not tell us about them — obstructed our investigation.

Daniel Marcus, a law professor at American University who served as general counsel for the Sept. 11 commission and was involved in the discussions about interviews with Al Qaeda leaders, said he had heard nothing about any tapes being destroyed.
If tapes were destroyed, he said, “it’s a big deal, it’s a very big deal,” because it could amount to obstruction of justice to withhold evidence being sought in criminal or fact-finding investigations. 
Destruction of Air Traffic Control Tapes

The tape of interviews of air traffic controllers on-duty on 9/11 was intentionally destroyed by crushing the cassette by hand, cutting the tape into little pieces, and then dropping the pieces in different trash cans around the building as shown by this NY Times article (summary version is free; full version is pay-per-view) and by this article from the Chicago Sun-Times.

Black Boxes

The FBI long ago found and analyzed the “black box” recorders from the airplanes which hit the Twin Towers, but has consistently denied that they were ever found.  And see this.

Pentagon Fibs

The 9/11 Commissioners concluded that officials from the Pentagon lied to the Commission, and considered recommending criminal charges for such false statements.

Soviet-Style “Minders”

The chairs of both the 9/11 Commission and the Official Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 said that Soviet-style government “minders” obstructed the investigation into 9/11 by intimidating witnesses (and see this).

In other words, the minders obstructed witnesses from openly and candidly talking about what they knew.

Undermining Investigation

President Bush and Vice-President Cheney took the rare step of personally requesting that congress limit all 9/11 investigation solely to “intelligence failures.”

The administration also opposed the creation of a 9/11 commission. Once it was forced (by pressure from widows of 9-11 victims) to allow a commission to be formed, the administration appointed as executive director an administration insider, whose area of expertise is the creation and maintenance of “public myths” thought to be true, even if not actually true, who was involved in pre-9/11 intelligence briefings, and who was one of the key architects of the “pre-emptive war” doctrine. This executive director, who controlled what the Commission did and did not analyze, then limited the scope of the Commission’s inquiry so that the overwhelming majority of questions about 9/11 remained unasked (see this and this).

The administration then starved the commission of funds. The government spent $175 million – over $300 million in today’s dollars – investigating the Challenger space shuttle disaster. It spent $152 million on the the Columbia disaster investigation. It spent $30 million investigating the Monica Lewinsky scandal. But the government only authorized $15 million for the 9/11 Commission.

The government also failed to provide crucial documents to the 9/11 investigators. And see this.

The government refused to share much information with the Commission, refused to force high-level officials to testify under oath, and allowed Bush and Cheney to be questioned jointly.

Moreover, as reported by ACLUFireDogLakeRawStory and many others, declassified documents shows that Senior Bush administration officials sternly cautioned the 9/11 Commission against probing too deeply into the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The 9-11 Commission took this warning to heart, and refused to examine virtually any evidence which contradicted the administration’s official version of events. As stated by the State Department’s  Coordinator for Counterterrorism – who was the point man for the U.S. government’s international counterterrorism policy in the first term of the Bush administration –“there were things the [9/11] commissions wanted to know about and things they didn’t want to know about.

Saudi Role

Investigation into Saudi government aid to 9/11 conspirators was also obstructed.
For example, Philip Shenon – the 20-year New York Times reporter who wrote a book on the 9/11 Commission – reports:
The [911] commissioner said the renewed public debate could force a spotlight on a mostly unknown chapter of the history of the 9/11 commission: behind closed doors, members of the panel’s staff fiercely protested the way the material about the Saudis was presented in the final report, saying it underplayed or ignored evidence that Saudi officials – especially at lower levels of the government – were part of an al-Qaida support network that had been tasked to assist the hijackers after they arrived in the US.In fact, there were repeated showdowns, especially over the Saudis, between the staff and the commission’s hard-charging executive director, University of Virginia historian Philip Zelikow, who joined the Bush administration as a senior  adviser to the secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, after leaving the commission. The staff included experienced investigators from the FBI, the Department of Justice and the CIA, as well as the congressional staffer who was the principal author of the 28 pages. 
Zelikow fired a staffer, who had repeatedly protested over limitations on the Saudi investigation, after she obtained a copy of the 28 pages outside of official channels. Other staffers described an angry scene late one night, near the end of the investigation, when two investigators who focused on the Saudi allegations were forced to rush back to the commission’s offices after midnight after learning to their  astonishment that some of the most compelling evidence about a Saudi tie to 9/11 was being edited out of the report or was being pushed to tiny, barely readable footnotes and endnotes. The staff protests were mostly overruled.
Indeed, an FBI informant hosted and rented a room to two hijackers in 2000. Specifically, investigators for the Congressional Joint Inquiry discovered that an FBI informant had hosted and even rented a room to two hijackers in 2000 and that, when the Inquiry sought to interview the informant, the FBI refused outright, and then hid him in an unknown location, and that a high-level FBI official stated these blocking maneuvers were undertaken under orders from the White House.

As the New York Times notes:
Senator Bob Graham, the Florida Democrat who is a former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, accused the White House on Tuesday of covering up evidence ….The accusation stems from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s refusal to allow investigators for a Congressional inquiry and the independent Sept. 11 commission to interview an informant, Abdussattar Shaikh, who had been the landlord in San Diego of two Sept. 11 hijackers.
Letting Terrorists Go Free

A former FBI translator who Senators Leahy and Grassley, among others, have claimed is credible, and who the administration has gagged for years without any logical basis — has stated that “this administration knowingly and intentionally let many directly or indirectly involved in that terrorist act [September 11th] go free – untouched and uninvestigated”?

Destruction of Physical Evidence

The former head of fire science and engineering for the agency responsible for finding out why the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7 collapsed on 9/11 (the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology) – who is one of the world’s leading fire science researchers and safety engineers, with a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering – wrote that evidence necessary to determine the cause of the collapse of the World Trade Centers was being destroyed. And see this.

In addition, the official investigators themselves were largely denied access to the site and the evidence contained there, or even access to such basic information as the blueprints for the World Trade Center.

The government has also refused to release the computer models showing how the trade centers fell, making it impossible for anyone to double-check its assumptions.

Whether you believe the Twin Towers and World Trade Center building 7 were brought down with explosives or by airplanes and fires, destroying evidence prevented engineers and scientists from figuring out what went wrong … to prevent skyscrapers from collapsing in the future.

In addition, the government has refused to release many of the videos and photographs taken on 9/11 in response to Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) inquiries. And lawyers and researchers who have reviewed videos produced by the government in response to FOIA requests have told Washington’s Blog that the government produced intentionally degraded versions which make it impossible to see or hear details.

9/11 Commissioners Disgusted … and Call For a New Investigation

The 9/11 Commissioners publicly expressed anger at cover ups and obstructions of justice by the government into a real 9/11 investigation:
  • The Commission’s co-chairs said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”
  • The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) – who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry – said “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened“. He also said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”
  • The Co-Chair of the congressional investigation into 9/11 – Bob Graham – and 9/11 Commissioner and former Senator Bob Kerrey are calling for either a “PERMANENT 9/11 commission” or a new 9/11 investigation to get to the bottom of it
  • 9/11 Commissioner John Lehman says that a new investigation should be “vigorously pursued
Planting False Evidence

Planting false evidence is another act which creates presumption of guilt.

The type of torture used by the U.S. on alleged surviving 9/11 co-conspirators is of a special type. Senator Levin revealed that the the U.S. used Communist torture techniques specifically aimed at creating FALSE confessions. (and see this,thisthis and this).

According to NBC News:
  • Much of the 9/11 Commission Report was based upon the testimony of people who were tortured
  • At least four of the people whose interrogation figured in the 9/11 Commission Report have claimed that they told interrogators information as a way to stop being “tortured”
  • One of the Commission’s main sources of information was tortured until he agreed to sign a confession that he wasNOT EVEN ALLOWED TO READ
  • The 9/11 Commission itself doubted the accuracy of the torture confessions, and yet kept their doubts to themselves
Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Seymour Hersh – who broke the Iraq torture and Vietnam massacre stories – writes:
Many of the investigators believe that some of the initial clues that were uncovered about the terrorists’ identities and preparations, such as flight manuals, were meant to be found. A former high-level intelligence official told me, “Whatever trail was left was left deliberately — for the F.B.I. to chase“.

"9/11 – The Art Of Blaming Others – Isn’t 15 Years Of the Dick and Don Psyop Enough?

By Bernie Suarez
September 9, 2016

Several years back, when pressed by an activist about the need for true justice and accountability for the events of September 11, 2001 9/11 commissioner Bob Kerry stated that 9/11 is a “30-year-old conspiracy.” But what exactly did Kerry mean by this? I believe there are only two possibilities. Either he meant that:

a- The 9/11 event took 30 years to plan or,

b- He meant that the investigation time-period is expected to last for 30 years.

I believe he meant choice ‘B’ only because choice ‘A’ would implicate foreknowledge and amount to accusing the U.S. government of orchestrating 9/11, something we wouldn’t expect Kerry to do if he was expecting to keep his position as a 9/11 commissioner. So if Kerry is telling us that 9/11 will take 30 years to solve, this is sort of an admission that 9/11 is not meant to be solved now. It also implies that other things have to happen to kill time until we arrive at the 30-year mark.

If Kerry was correct in this “30-year” time span then that means we are only halfway in this time-table. Frankly, it would be interesting to get Kerry under oath explaining exactly what he meant by this. Nevertheless, if Kerry is correct then (again) here we are at the halfway mark.

Fifteen years later humanity is certainly much more politically awakened. The world is packed with information. Access to that information is easier now more than ever and knowledge of the world we live in is spreading faster than ever. All of these developments and realities also present a problem for the ruling elite which to this day is still protecting the 9/11 “official” story. And if indeed we have fifteen more years of disinformation ahead of us, then shouldn’t we do our best to confront the tactics that so far have made us all look the other way when looking to assign blame for the event? In fact, for fifteen years we’ve been told that no one should dare to blame our government or blame anyone in particular until we have all the facts, unless of course you blame Bin Laden and al-Qaeda. Put another way, blaming the US government for 9/11 is considered almost blasphemous today. The masses have been conditioned to not question who actually did 9/11. And now, after fifteen years I believe it’s time to confront who did 9/11 by pointing out some of the very tricks they (those who did 9/11) have used to mislead us all these years. I call this the art of blaming others. An art that the perpetrators have become very good at.

As to the question of who did 9/11, given what we know today about the events of 9/11, it is not unreasonable to suggest that the heaviest evidence of guilt today points squarely at the two men who were in charge of the entire country on that day, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. Cheney was acting as commander in chief after Bush was sent off to read stories to children, and as the Secretary of Defense, Rumsfeld was in charge of the entire US military and Department of Defense on that day. Once you truly understand this power combination of Cheney and Rumsfeld, which I refer to as “Dick and Don,” you have to come up with a realistic and believable scenario to prove that someone on dialysis living in a cave halfway around the world could outsmart and outmaneuver these two powerful men in control of the greatest military and intelligence force ever assembled in the history of humanity.

Of course we’re not just talking about two men, with the Bush administration came a deeply connected network of criminals; many of them part of the same boys club, many having worked with and for each other, many owing each other favors and all on the same page ready to cover each other’s behinds if necessary. Understanding this Deep State criminal network is the key to understanding who did 9/11. When you study it and understand how the ranking system works in this criminal Neocon network then it will become clear that Cheney and Rumsfeld were indeed very likely the top two masterminds of the entire operation with everyone else playing out their roles as instructed. Now to further demonstrate this hypothesis and build our case let’s explore some elements of 9/11 and apply the problem solving principle of Occam’s razor to them. That is, we’ll search for the explanation with the least amount of assumptions or the simplest explanation.

We’ve already discussed the positions held by Cheney and Rumsfeld on the day of the attack and the likelihood that their duel leadership was at the controls of the associated tightly knit criminal network in position that day. By applying Occam’s razor now let’s demonstrate how this team of criminals had all the means to execute 9/11 and how improbable if not impossible it is that they could ever have been outperformed by a sick and dying man on dialysis living in the caves of Afghanistan.

Since the attacks of September 11th were airliner related let’s look to the sky and consider who was in charge of the sky. It is undeniably documented that many war games were going on that morning, many of them conveniently were simulating a hijacking scenario (Operation Vigilant Guardian and many other operations) and these games perfectly played into the engineered confusion taking place at various air command centers who were contacted about the hijacked planes. Again, all of this not-so-coincidental engineered and convenient confusion made the execution of the attacks perfectly possible. The magnitude and frequency of the convenient mistakes, deliberate confusion and downright non-action documented on that day cannot be attributed to chance when looking for the simplest explanation and when looking at functional capacity of the US military and DOD as a whole on that day. This topic of deliberate war games and confusion which made it as difficult as possible for anyone to mount a successful and timely response to the reported hijackings that morning, I feel, is one of the most important pieces of the puzzle for understanding who did 9/11.

In charge of all those war games was the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). And the person in command of NORAD was General Ralph Eberhart, another piece of the criminal network controlled by Cheney and Rumsfeld. As a group called ‘Pilots for 9/11 Truth’ thoroughly demonstrate (in the video below), US air command response to the notification of multiple hijacked planes was deliberately sloppy and slow and at one point deliberately misleading information was even confirmed to have come from Washington D.C. seemingly designed to sabotage the speed and effectiveness of any potential air defense response to the hijacked planes. Applying Occam’s razor, only Dick and Don and their immediate network of players including Eberhart would have been able to impact this non-response in such a way, again, making the seemingly desired attacks possible, or as we shall see later, making the NARRATIVE of the desired attack possible.

In a 2004 Senate hearing, Senator Mark Dayton put it this way regarding the towering non-response by NORAD to the known hijackings:
This country and its citizens were completely undefended … for 109 minutes.
In his book Another Nineteen author and researcher Kevin Ryan states the following regarding NORAD, the lies told by General Eberhart and the suspiciously convenient failures of the entire US air defense the morning of September 11th:
The timeline showed that NORAD was notified about the hijacking of Flight 175 at 8:43 am, a full twenty minutes before it impacted the south tower of the World Trade Center (WTC). Moreover, F-15 interceptor jets from Otis Air Force Base (AFB) were said to be airborne by 8:52, having been scrambled in response to the first hijacking. This allowed twice the time needed for the jets to reach New York City before Flight 175 crashed.
Eberhart added that NORAD was notified about the hijacked Flight 77 coming into Washington at 9:24 am, fourteen minutes before it impacted the Pentagon. He told the Senate Armed Services Committee (repeatedly) that this was a “documented notification”. If true, interceptor jets from Andrews AFB, only ten miles from the Pentagon, could have easily reached the errant airliner given this lead time. 
Although the military might use the excuse that Andrews AFB was not technically under the command of NORAD, the 9/11 Commission said that Eberhart’s statement was simply not true. In fact, both Commission counsel Dan Marcus and team leader John Farmer were later very blunt about this being false. Therefore, it is clear that Eberhart should be charged with related crime. It is illegal to make any materially false statement or representation in testimony to the United States Congress. And that was not the only false statement that Eberhart apparently made to the senators.
The story told by NORAD and Eberhart later changed to perfectly fit the official story told by the 9/11 Commission Report. Ryan states in his book:
The fourth and final story from NORAD was the official account given by the 9/11 Commission Report, now supported by NORAD. In this explanation NORAD received “no advance notice” on any of the last three hijacked airliners. Instead of 20 minutes of notice of Flight 175, 14 minutes notice on Flight 77, and 47 minutes notice on Flight 93, we were told that NORAD was not notified about any of them until it was too late. The military was off the hook entirely. 
All the evidence for notification and response, which had constituted the official account for nearly three years, had been thrown out the window. In place of these documents and testimonies, new explanations were given for why the scrambled aircraft never reached the hijacked airliners. These included unbelievable claims of communication failures and misdirection of the scrambled jets, as well as the introduction of a never-before mentioned “Phantom 11” scenario.
In light of the big picture painted here, the theory that Bin Laden along with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed were somehow the supposed masterminds of this event becomes a truly ridiculous proposition with nearly zero percent probability of that being the case for the reasons already stated.

And this theory is just one of four theories which have circulated over that past 15 years which I want to discuss here. Each of these theories, I firmly believe, have been put out by the same criminal network that did 9/11 and the primary goal is to keep both Cheney and Rumsfeld as well as the rest of the network from having to go to jail for the rest of their lives or face execution. The original intent and attempted survival of this criminal Neocon network is another key to understanding 9/11.

So let’s examine these four intelligence-engineered blame-game theories and explore how for 15 years these theories have been adopted by even well-meaning truth seekers. All four of these theories have one simple common denominator that everyone should look for and that most people miss every time even though it’s hidden in plain sight. They all point the blame for 9/11 AWAY from Dick and Don, the two most powerful men in America the day of the attacks and the two men with the means, the motive (which we’ll discuss later) and the opportunity to coordinate such an attack.

To see and feel the simplicity of this argument more clearly close your eyes and imagine yourself reading this story two three or even four hundred years from now in the very distant future. Try to imagine how simple this logic really is when you remove current day propaganda and emotions from the equation. The emotions, rebuttals, name-calling, propaganda and lies act as signal disrupters to the otherwise very easy logic (think Occam’s razor) needed to solve the riddle of who did it.

9/11 blame-game: 4 theories commonly told

1 – Bin Laden and al-Qaeda did 9/11- box cutters and all!

As already discussed earlier, application of simple logic and reason and taking all logistical and tactical realities into account there is almost no mathematical probability of this scenario playing out in the real world. First, Bin Laden was also known as CIA asset Tim Osmond and in addition to being armed and trained by the US in the 1980s when he was part of the Mujahideen fighting force in Afghanistan, he (Bin Laden and his family) was intricately connected to both Cheney and Bush as well as many in the Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld Neocon network.

The very morning of September 11th members of the Carlyle group including George HW Bush himself was meeting with Bin Laden’s brother Shafig Bin Laden talking business! It doesn’t get any more obvious than this. Yet through the magic of cognitive dissonance most Americans will shut their minds off and refuse to look at this evidence because it forces them to face the reality of 9/11. That it was a well-planned false flag attack coordinated by a network of criminal in the Bush administration with the cooperation of many Deep State operatives and corporate entities spanning various countries to accomplish all the goals set forth by this network long before September 11, 2001.

Of all the theories, once a person begins to think on their own, this is usually the first theory they let go due to the obvious evidence. Anyone can see that Bin Laden could not have placed all those explosive devices and all the military grade thermite (or nano-thermite) and cutter charges in the three towers that dropped controlled demolition style (WTC 1,2,7). Let’s look at some other theories commonly circulated and believed that are designed to (again) point the finger away from Dick and Don.

2 – Bin Laden did it but the government let it happen – negligence theory!

This second theory is common among people who see what happened but don’t want to be on record as “blaming the US government” directly. Perhaps they are afraid of getting fired or losing friends or whatever. This is a middle of the road approach for people who don’t want to go “too far.” It feels “safer” and less prone to “conspiracy theories.” We often hear Hollywood celebrities and people on TV talk this way.

Now I want to pose an argument for suggesting that this “negligence” theory could very well be and (IMO) likely is yet another psyop that the perpetrators were working on long before 9/11 actually happened. I firmly believe this is why certain pieces of information ping-ponged back and forth between FBI and CIA. In some case lower level informants either intentionally or unintentionally released information intended to give credibility to the official story.

Some reading this may not necessarily agree with what I’m about to say but all I can say is hear me out. I believe the criminal network that did 9/11 especially the intelligence services (George Tenet) and many others connected to intelligence carefully planned a trail of “evidence” to:

a. Give the official story authenticity

b. Demonstrate that, yes, Bin Laden did it but only because of deliberate negligence and incompetence on the part of the US military and DOD.

Think of how clever of a strategy and how effective this strategy proved to be (or would prove to be).

I personally believe this is yet another key to understanding 9/11. The criminals knew they would have to answer (JFK style) to the world forever regarding every detail of this event so why not leave a trail to show the world how it happened. THIS my friends, I believe is why the terrorists were allowed into the country and freely given visas, places to live even flight training. The men had to don the role to make the story real. THIS my friends, is where the whistleblower testimony of (think CIA asset Colonel Anthony Shaffer!) “Operation Able Danger” comes into play. Man blows cover on  operation that REALLY shows the terrorists REALLY were here and planning the attacks. End result? Operation looks and feels real and hundreds of millions of people therefore BELIEVE the story. Ta-da!

Pardon the sarcasm but I truly believe this “negligence” theory was carefully planned. We already discussed earlier the “failures” of NORAD to respond to the hijackings. Similarly the entire posture of the Bush administration post-9/11 was one of “gee, we failed didn’t we?” Let that sink in.

3 – Israel did it, Mossad surprised the US on 9/11!

The third theory that I believe is part of the pre-planned strategy by the 9/11 criminal network to keep the blame on others instead of Dick and Don and their network is what I’ve been calling for some time now the “Israel did it” psyop.

This theory is much more clever and sophisticated than the first two that we’ve discussed so far because this one directly appeals to those already awakened to the fact that 9/11 was an inside job.

This movement seeks to supplant already established knowledge about 9/11, it ridicules most of the scholars and researchers who have put out films and books about 9/11 and labels them all as trolls.

The “Israel did it” movement seeks to reboot and redefine the 9/11 truth movement so that people can  “wake up” to the “new” reality that Israel actually did 9/11. Famously this movement cites the “dancing Israelis” and the Zionist-related players involved in the Dick and Don criminal network as “proof” that the Zionist are secretly the ones calling all the shots. They claim that anonymous Zionist elements (who no one ever actually identifies!) are secretly telling the CIA and EVEN the Pentagon and US military what to do.

Another reason why this third Dick and Don deep state tactic is effective with many people is that it is based on partial truth (think cognitive infiltration). A partial truth is always MUCH more easy to convince someone of. The intelligence community knows this. They know that Israeli Mossad and Zionist elements WERE in fact involved in 9/11. This is enough to convince some people into buying into the entire theory. When it’s all said and done, as with the first two psyop theories, again Cheney, Rumsfeld and their Deep State criminal network get a free pass.

4 – Saudi Arabia did it – we have the “proof” – the 28 pages psyop!

Last but not least, as if the last three psyop theories were not enough, today in 2016, right at the halfway mark of the supposed 30-year 9/11 conspiracy we are now seeing alive and well what I call the “28 pages” psyop. Yes, the 28 pages I believe is an absolute 100% psyop to fool honest truth seekers into thinking that – “ooh, since they tried to censor these 28 pages, it must be truthful information that will help us figure out who did 9/11.”

Here’s a simple question for all truth seekers. If the 28 pages truly revealed who did 9/11 and it spelled out “D-I-C-K   C-H-E-N-EY” and “D-O-N-A-L-D   R-U-M-S-F-E-L-D or any of the criminals who made this event happen, do you really think the mainstream media would be bragging about this paper and happy to tell you about it?? Not a chance in the world! This is the SAME mainstream media and government that buries any truth that exposes them and that sabotages their new world order plans.

Please think with wisdom here my friends. Why let them fool you yet again? There’s no way these evil ruling elite would EVER allow the “28 pages” or ANY document to be released that actually incriminates them. Knowing this, is anyone surprised that the 28 pages implies that Saudi Arabia funded 9/11? Is anyone surprised that the 28 pages reinforces the official story lies of 9/11? Is anyone surprised that the 28 pages exonerates Dick and Don and their Deep State network that had the means, the motive and the opportunity?

What about motive?

Finally, of all the options here, yes one could say that Saudi Arabia could have had some motive since the post-9/11 war on terror has benefited them in their immediate region. We’ve seen (Shiite) enemies of the UAE destroyed, they’ve received arms from the West and they’ve solidified their position in the Middle East.

Likewise Israel (think Great Israel) has benefited from 9/11 as their plans to break up their neighboring countries has gone pretty well. As I’ve said many times Israel is almost inseparable to the US and I think of them as a Zionist led (or occupied) US military base in the Middle East.

However, neither Saudi Arabia or Israel have military bases all over the world and neither of them get billions of dollars a year to fight the war on terror like the Pentagon and DOD get with the post-9/11 Pentagon Slush Fund.

It was the Bush Neocon PNAC think tank that planned US military global domination to be triggered by “a new Pearl Harbor.” Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld and their Deep State criminal network had been planning this globalization and this display of US military might on innocent nation states long before 9/11. Iraq and Afghanistan had long been in their crosshairs. Many companies tied to the Bush administration made a lot of money from the invasion and destruction of Afghanistan and Iraq and later the Obama war years.

The police state which stifled all of our freedoms and stripped away the Constitution was all implemented as a result of 9/11 and that mostly benefited those in power here in the US. The rest is history. The criminals have gotten away with torture, murder, theft, war crimes, illegal prisons, state secrecy, a brutal police state, the launching of a Hitler-like surveillance state, destruction of free speech and criminalization of dissent.

But it doesn’t end there, right? These criminals which are not limited to Cheney and Bush as we’ve seen during the 8 horrifying years of CIA Manchurian candidate Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama, the crimes of the Obama administration have actually surpassed the crimes of the Bush administration and that is because in the end the Deep State is much deeper than any one of us can imagine. These people continue to meet in secret (CFR, Bilderberg) planning how they will rule the world, and they continue to carve out their new world order plans (Agenda 2030, global police, carbon taxes, etc.) all while trying to depopulate the planet (force vaccination, chemtrails, forced GMO and more) so that they can enjoy it for themselves.

This, my friends, is the story of 9/11. At least a brief version of it. One must see the bigger picture to then more easily fit the pieces together and connect the dots in a manner consistent with the most likely scenario requiring the least amount of assumptions.

If you agree please share this 15th anniversary 9/11 message.


"9/11 Patriotism Psychosis Dominates NFL Opening Day – Incomprehensible Distortion Of Reality

By Bernie Suarez
September 11, 2016

With the National Football League (NFL) season now officially begun and with opening day Sunday taking place today September 11th all over America, the NFL and all of its sports media pundits are jumping on this opportunity to sell the 9/11 official story, especially the emotional memory attached to the event. All around the league teams and players are doing notable things to sell the official story to the young generation. Sadly, or should I say deceptively, all of these events are designed to draw attention away from the quest for identifying the real perpetrators who did 9/11 and they are designed to draw attention from any critical questions that shine the spotlight on 15 years of deception and lies from our (U.S.) government like:
  1. Why did Bush and Cheney get away with not testifying under oath?
  2. Why did Bush and Cheney get away with testifying only with both of them in the same room?
  3. Why did Bush and Cheney insist the interrogation not be recorded?
  4. Why was the 9/11 Commission underfunded and set up to fail?
  5. Why have most of the questions posed by the victims’ families never been answered?
  6. Why is almost every part of the official story based on unproven lies, inconsistencies and false claims yet no one has been held accountable for these lies?
  7. Why has all of the government junk science been proven wrong yet the government still asserts these are the scientific explanations?
  8. Why has no one been criminally prosecuted for specifically lying to the 9/11 Commission?
  9. Why has no one been criminally prosecuted for the put options placed on United and American airlines and evidence of foreknowledge?
  10. Why hasn’t anyone been criminally prosecuted for the colossal failures of our air defense system that day?
This list could go on seemingly forever as the unsolved issues with 9/11 go on and on. Humanity is crying for justice once and for all but unfortunately that justice seems nowhere in sight. As I discussed some time back one of the reasons for this is that the Pentagon is regularly pouring money into the sports leagues to promote the US military and patriotism, whether it’s college sports or the pro leagues like Major League Baseball (MLB), the NBA or NFL.

And so on this anniversary of 9/11 the very Pentagon squarely at the center of the attack on their own building on 9/11 and the same DOD deeply connected to the orchestration of the Operation Northwoods-style 9/11 seems to be pouring out the money again as players and teams around the NFL are doing all kinds of little things to commemorate 9/11 but in a way that not only does not demand answers but instead ONLY focuses of “paying tribute to the heroes.” The much more important notion of actually solving 9/11, asking any tough questions, demanding real answers or even paying attention to the unanswered questions of the family members of those who lost loved ones is not even mentioned. In fact, in some cases the entire event is one big fun opportunity to market items.

But the hypocrisy and in-your-face psyop doesn’t end there. Barack Obama and 9/11 co-conspirator George Bush himself will chime in at a league level in psyop ceremonies that will involve every NFL team. All in the name of diverting everyone’s attention to worshiping the very “heroes” who Bush and his administration murdered on that day when they blew up the WTC towers. And for good measure they’re even throwing in a little typical American sports US military worship!

As if the propaganda flying all over the place in the NFL this weekend is not enough, just to rub it in even further, they are also doing damage control with the Colin Kaepernick recent backfiring. Since the recent failure the mainstream media propaganda machine sustained when a two-week campaign to demonize San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for not standing up during the playing of the National Anthem actually backfired, we now see them going into damage control this weekend putting out stories about how Shaquille O’Neal is now saying “I would never do that.

For anyone not familiar with the story, for about two weeks now the media has been attacking Kaepernick after he took a stand against the violent police state by not standing up during the playing of the National Anthem. Kaepernick has since been attacked every single day by the media, the local police union, and the media even reported how some fans were “burning” his jersey. Hoping the propaganda would catch on further the media recently suffered a major setback when it was reported that Kaepernick’s jersey is suddenly the top selling jersey in the league and other players in the league decided they would join his protest of the National Anthem. Obviously this is not what the mainstream media had planned, so on this propaganda weekend this is why they are throwing in this damage control story about Shaquille O’Neal making these comments disagreeing with Kaepernick, a story which is completely unrelated to 9/11 but it reaffirms the “patriotism” the league is selling to its fans as a smokescreen to the 9//11 crimes and to reiterate the 9/11 official story.

Unfortunately this is the degree to which the Pentagon is pouring money into these sports leagues. The Pentagon needs to keep the young men (especially) and women brainwashed about 9/11 lest they actually wake up and realize the Pentagon was at the center of perpetrating the event and they need to keep up the military worship to keep recruitment going.

Americans are by far and without question the most brainwashed human beings on planet earth as they worship the very terrorists who have murdered and funded the murder of millions of innocent people around the globe with their military occupations and regime change strategies all for the purposes of their global domination plans and the coming global order.

Sports, as proven this weekend, is once again the cornerstone of this mass brainwashing as sports zombies root for their favorite team (symbolically) alongside the very terrorists who murder, rape, and torture the innocent in the name of American might.

Let’s remember that often THE greatest victims are the very US military people in uniform being worshiped. As most of them will eventually find out once they get out of the military, veterans are later treated like criminals and terrorists. Many “war” related veterans will be diagnosed with mental disorders and tagged as unfit to own a gun. No country turns their back on their own veterans like the US.

In the end the ONLY winners here is the very ruling elite who create these wars and the very ruling elite that planned and executed 9/11 and ultimately this is the biggest tragedy of this weekend’s 9/11 psyop ceremonies.

This is a sad story to watch but it is up to us to keep the flames of truth and the torch of freedom and free speech burning by exposing this mass hypocrisy and propaganda staged by the Pentagon, the mainstream and the powers that be in these sports leagues.

It’s been 15 years of lies and millions have died because of 9/11 not just the “heroes” the Bush administration blew up in the WTC towers and their own employees they blew up with their cruise missile into at the Pentagon. It’s also the millions of people terrorized by their “moderate rebels/al-Nusra/ISIS/Muslim brotherhood, etc.” proxy armies that regularly switch their names, have overlapping allegiance and are funded, trained, armed and supplied by the US.

The whole thing is an ugly story that wont end until we find a way to stop the US military-Pentagon war machine and the intelligence-mainstream media psyop machine. Until we can accomplish this the most effective thing we can do is keep sharing the truth with others so that others can see what is truly happening for themselves.


"Cognitive Infiltration – Countering US Government Vicious Pentagon 9/11 Lies

By Bernie Suarez
September 11, 2016

This presentation was originally intended as an open letter to truth seekers at the group called Truth Action Project (TAP). I now want to share this information with everyone. Continuing with this year’s  Truth and Art TV 9/11 15th anniversary ‘throwing down the gauntlet‘ series, the purpose of this article is to help others finally lay to rest the Pentagon lies that have circulated the 9/11 truth movement for so many years. After reviewing this, sadly some will cling on to the official story lies. A reminder that cognitive dissonance and willful ignorance occurs amongst truth seekers as well. Others still pushing the official story of course are actually agents of the State and this presentation will hopefully sharpen our discernment to be able to identify these entities.

On this 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks we continue to see the 9/11 truth movement constantly attacked with disinformation to keep everyone divided. This is classic Cointelpro tactics used by the US government for years since 1956. The primary goal of this program was (or should I say is) to infiltrate groups and CONTROL the opposition they represent. The fact of the matter is that the battle for truth never ends, and given the recent disinformation about the Pentagon 9/11 story posted on the website 911tap.org here and here I want to post this rebuttal for all truth seekers to see and recognize the truth about the Pentagon 9/11 story that is staring you right in the face.

We all agree that the US government and their mainstream media is lying about the events of September 11th 2001 and anyone who chooses to believe a segment of this story is willfully choosing to believe a lie told to you by the very same element who is lying about WTC destruction on that day.

Let that sink in.

We’re not going to get into the impossibilities of a 757 jumbo jet being flown by a Middle Eastern man (Hani Hanjour) with very little flying experience and no experience whatsoever flying a jet this large pulling off a 220 degree turn and precisely flying this jet into the Pentagon. And we’re not going to talk about a jumbo jet packed with people, luggage and fuel flying at impossibly low levels without shattering into pieces (as confirmed by experts and pilots all over the world), all while knocking down FIVE light poles and still somehow perfectly steering the plane conveniently into the section of the Pentagon that had been under construction at least since the early ’90s, all while leaving a small hole that coincidentally would nicely fit a hole that would be left there by… say a missile? What are the odds?! But don’t worry, we’re not going to get into missiles, deliberate war games or missing planes in this letter.

I want to begin instead by doing what TAP did, and that is by pointing everyone to the so-called “30 witnesses” who the anonymous writer is claiming proves the 9/11 “official story” correct. We know with certainty based on all eyewitness accounts that A plane flew toward the Pentagon. As Citizens Investigation Team (CIT) and Craig Ranke proved beyond a shadow of a doubt, that plane was moving relatively slow, a factor we won’t put too much value on here since “fast” and “slow” sometimes means different things to different people.

However, not up for debate and clearly reiterated by many witnesses, the plane that flew toward the Pentagon flew NORTH of the Citgo gas station. This is completely contrary to the official story lies and is 100% verified by several Pentagon police officers (officers Lagasse and officer Brooks – See images below) and numerous eyewitnesses including many eyewitnesses who were located at the Arlington Cemetery which is even farther north of the Citgo gas station. It has been determined that for the workers at the Arlington Cemetery to have seen the approaching plane the official story MUST be false since the official story claims a south side approach.

Also not up for debate is that many eyewitnesses saw the plane do a flyover at the last minute. That is, the plane flew OVER the Pentagon; and just as it flew over, there was a large explosion as the approaching plane continued on. This is factual and documented by many accounts.


After reading this article the author of the TAP articles endorsing the Pentagon official story wrote back asking for proof of my statement that “many” eyewitnesses saw the plane do a flyover.

My response?

Technically speaking he’s correct! It should technically read many people holdassert or believe and only a couple of people actually “saw” the flyover, or what they describe as a plane continuing. Just like the bogus witnesses who claim they “saw” the impact, again, it’s fair to point out that very few people “saw” anything due to where they were and that’s the point. Many people simply ASSUMED that the plane hit. But I digress. Many of those that believe the plane (or a plane) flew right over were inside the Pentagon and that makes them very credible. Had an actual plane crashed into the building they were in, ALL OF THEM would have confirmed this. This is a huge piece of the puzzle people!

If you watch the video ‘National Security Alert’ below (for example starting at 57:10) you’ll find the quote from witness Eric Dihle who was at the Pentagon. He states that:
Some people were yelling that a bomb had hit the Pentagon and that a jet kept on going!!
Obviously this implies that at least several people (although they are unidentified) either saw or had every reason to believe the plane continued on. This is huge! And this completely debunks the government’s version of the story, and as truth seekers that’s all we should care about.

All that said, this leaves us with enough evidence to discard the ridiculous “official story” some to this day are STILL trying to sell to the American people that implies that American Airlines flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon which is entirely scientifically impossible according to the details of the government’s account. The fact that so many people confirm a NORTH side approach of a relatively slow moving plane banking to the right, again, entirely proves the official story to be a lie and this is really what matters. Anyone defending this lie should be suspected of being an agent for the Deep State. These agents commonly infiltrate other truth seeking groups for the sole purpose of creating controlled opposition to the story.

Regarding the so-called “30 witnesses”

Many of these witnesses are actually not witnesses to the ACTUAL impact of the approaching plane. The reason for this is because of the obstructing tree line.

Pentagon official story “witnesses” exposed!

These are just the “witnesses” mentioned in the recent TAP article

Janet– When speaking freely she says “Then we heard the huge crash saw this fireball and flameand smoke.” She’s then prodded into saying she actually saw a plane by the interviewer who seems to be trying to put words in her mouth (Possibly lying or coerced?).

Barbara– “we saw it go down below the side of the road and we saw the fire that came up after that.” — Didn’t actually see the plane impact.

Ed Hudson– “I didn’t actually see the impact ”

Alan Wallace – “there was a flash.. crunch .. fireball ” — Notice he didn’t see actual impact

Don Wright– saw a plane – no evidence he actually saw the impact – “it dipped down- came down right over 395 and right into the Pentagon” — Seems to be assuming the obvious based on the explosion and the timing. (It is not clear)

Mark Petitt– “I could have been mistaken” – “I saw the plane coming down”- Again he does not describe actual impact!

Michael Kelly– only “heard” what he thinks was a plane hit.

Mike Walters – I call this guy Harley guy part 2 – He was working for USA Today at the time (and today is still part of the mainstream media!!!)- Later admitted to CIT he didn’t actually see the impact! Was exposed contradicting himself. Walters then later changed his testimony yet again claiming he saw the entire impact including the “American Airlines logo.” Do you believe this mainstream media clown?

Mike Walters #2 — LOL – Same guy counted twice – watch CIT video!

Jamie McIntyre — Saw “very small parts of the plane” on heliport. None of the tiny parts placed there by those agents that were running around illegally tampering with evidence and carting off a large piece under a large blue tarp (remember that?) were seen by reporters or anyone at the scene in the early moments. See video below where the CNN reporter says “from my CLOSE UP inspection there’s no evidence of a plane having crashed ANYWHERE NEAR the Pentagon”!

Don Chauncey — saw big yellow fireball (not the impact).

Tim Timmerman– Says he saw plane actually hit — Dubious? Hearsay? Agent?

Joel Sucherman – Claims saw body and tail of plane of AA – Dubious? Hearsay? Agent?

Aziz Alhallan – Claims saw plane — Dubious? Hearsay? Psyop agent?

Lloyd England– LOL! — This is the guy who admitted when he didn’t know the cameras were rolling that all of this event was completely staged! Must watch CIT video below!!

Do you know anyone still pushing the Pentagon official story? Well guess what? They are working for the same big people this scumbag fake cab driver Lloyd England is working for or perhaps they are simply being fooled. Don’t let anyone tell you this powerful confession somehow doesn’t count.

Let’s call out the liars in their deception.

Another dubious “witness” not listed in the 911TAP article is:

Keith Wheelhouse— Not listed in TAP article — Claims he saw 2 planes including a C130 shattering into building — This wildly dubious account was proven false because no one else saw 2 planes or a C130. CIT interviewed him and blew his story open.

As you can see only 3 names on the list posted on TAP website would need to be interviewed one on one to elicit whether they ACTUALLY saw the impact or not. Until then, all of this is hearsay. To this date no one has actually disproved the many eyewitnesses who confirm the flyover, and that leaves plenty of reason to doubt any claims that anyone TRUTHFULLY is telling they actually saw the impact of any plane.

In a post-Sandy Hook, Post-Boston bombing, Post-160+ Obama mass-shooting psyop era is anyone shocked to think the government would post crisis actors to “tell the story” matching the official story of 9/11??

And don’t let them fool you when they borrow “David Chandler’s” name. Check out this link herewhere I discuss ‘Laying the Pentagon Debate to Rest- David Chandler vs CIT’ – In his presentation Chandler even admits that it’s impossible for flight 77 to have impacted. He makes a case for a plane hitting but ADMITTEDLY based on ASSUMPTIONS. Chandler actually admits these assumptions.

Check it out for yourself. Chandler does this because I believe he is an honest man as I personally interviewed Chandler along with Andy Steele when Andy and I hosted the 9/11 Freefall radio show back in 2011-2012. (Yes! I’ve volunteered with AE for several years myself!)


No organization has done more to advance 9/11 truth (in my opinion) than AE 9/11 Truth, and part of their success is that they push out topics that are not focused on the science of the WTC destruction. Groups like 911 Truth Action Project can also be an effective group but if they are going to allow disinformation like this so soon, then this is an ominous sign for this group.

Some of you may know that here in Los Angeles just last year we had a very obvious infiltration of We Are Change Los Angeles when former Organizer “Ed” decided to start spreading lies about the Pentagon and ignoring the evidence. He then along with another agent “Nelson” asserted that ONLY “Israel did 9/11,” which is another major psyop to beware of. Before you knew it they were laughing off and mocking anyone who dared question many of the recent false flag psyop events of the past few years or anyone who thinks that the new world order is real. The goal was to blame “Israel” for everything. They only wanted to talk about 9/11 and only about how “Israel did 9/11” but in order to do this they had to push the official story lies of the Pentagon. With no evidence whatsoever of course, one day Ed was even trying to place Israeli vans in Shanksville, PA!!

Beware! I firmly believe this is all part of an Intelligence operation to break up truth groups locally. It almost worked with our group. Everyone was fighting but we did overcome this. We pushed him out by starting a new official chapter of We are Change here in Los Angeles. Today the group is thriving while his group fizzles away. But I digress.

As a result of all this we then came up with a saying here in LA:

“Without the Pentagon lies the Israel did it movement dies.”

The Bush Neocons orchestrated 9/11 particularly Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney along with their huge network of criminals tracing back to the Ford and Nixon administration. They did it with the help of elements in Israel, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, UK and others. And they are the same ones who have everyone chasing the “28 pages” that supposedly prove that “Saudi Arabia” did it (another psyop!).

I highly recommend reading Another Nineteen by Kevin Ryan where Ryan blows the criminal network wide open. David Ray Griffin and many other like Peter Dale Scott have described this criminal network that to this day is putting out disinformation through the US military and their Intelligence, dividing truth seekers with disinformation so that no one gets at the truth about the Deep State that we are fighting against.

This open letter is intended with love, kindness and concern.

We are all fighting the same enemy. I do not wish to attack any groups just shine the light on disinformation on the elements who invade well meaning groups and then let the truth seekers decide for themselves.

The Facts Of 9/11 Must Be Suppressed
The towers didn't fall down.
They blew up.

One day when I had nothing to do, I watched a video in which John McMurtry tried to explain why the facts of 9/11 are suppressed.

McMurtry expresses himself in long sequences of long words, in complex paragraphs peppered with academic jargon but no explanation of what these specialized words mean. It's easy to see why they call him "Professor."

The video runs for almost an hour, and I suppose he finally comes to a coherent point, but I can't tell you for sure, because I fell asleep long before the end. But that's probably all right, because I must have needed the sleep.

I don't mean to be harsh on Professor McMurtry, for I admire what he's doing. Too few of our smartest people have said in public what they all must know in private: that the official story of 9/11 is impossible to believe if you know anything at all about it.

It seems to me that those with academic credentials ought to be leaders in all realms of thought, especially the search for truth, and certainly including the truth about 9/11. Too many of them have failed us by pretending we already have the truth, when clearly we don't.

I give Professor McMurtry a world of credit for standing up and speaking out. I only wish we could all understand what he has to say.


Why the Facts of 9/11 Must be Suppressed

I have my own notion of why the facts of 9/11 must be suppressed, and I can explain it in five short paragraphs:

(1) The official story of 9/11 has been used to justify drastic military actions by the United States and its allies, actions which have brought death, destruction, and chaos to Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, and many other countries.

(2) The same story has also been used to justify drastic changes in domestic policy, in the United States and in much of the world. These changes have resulted in the persecution, incarceration, torture, and death of many innocent people, not to mention the erosion of civil rights and the perversion of the democratic process in every nation that once enjoyed it.

(3) If it were widely and clearly understood that the official story of 9/11 is not only obviously false but a carefully crafted fiction, the military actions described above would be seen as unjustified acts of mass murder, war crimes and crimes against humanity; the policy changes would be seen as acts of treason; the people responsible for these actions might be in danger of accountability; and the new policies themselves might even be in danger of reversal, in which case the people who benefit from these policies might need to find a new way to feed at the public trough.

(4) If the official story were true, the facts of 9/11 would support it, and independent research would confirm it. Therefore the facts would be widely publicized and independent researchers would be encouraged. But none of this is happening, and that's because the facts of 9/11 undermine the official story, and the independent researchers destroy it.

(5) Therefore the facts and the independent researchers must both be suppressed. Otherwise the new policies would be in danger, the people who implemented them would be in danger, the people who profit from them would be slightly inconvenienced, and the perpetrators of 9/11 might actually be brought to justice.


Some Facts of 9/11 that Must Be Suppressed

We now come to the part of the story that cannot be told in an hour, or even six hours.

The following list contains some facts of 9/11 that defenders of the official story wish you didn't know, some questions they wish you wouldn't ask, some thoughts they wish you wouldn't entertain, some conclusions they wish you wouldn't draw ... and some hints that could help you talk yourself out of taking it seriously, which is exactly what they want you to do.

-- It is not unthinkable, unknown, or even uncommon for a government to attack its own people, blame the attack on an enemy, and use the attack as a pretext for a war which would otherwise be considered unjustified. Such an attack is often called a "False Flag" attack, and the trick has been played again and again throughout American History. Fortunately, most Americans are well-enough educated to be virtually unaware of history, so they can't even imagine such a thing.

-- In 2000, a think tank called the Project for a New American Century (PNAC) published a position paper called "Rebuilding America's Defenses," (RAD) which called for enormous and rapid increases in US military spending in order to secure "full spectrum dominance" over the entire world, but noted that "the process of transformation is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor." Of course, having called for a major attack, they sat back and waited to see what would happen.

-- A year later, following the theft of the 2000 Presidential election, several PNAC members, signatories of RAD, occupied key positions in the Bush administration, including Dick Cheney as Vice President, Donald Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense, and Paul Wolfowitz as Assistant Secretary of Defense. These men were perfectly positioned to prevent the attacks, if they had wanted to do so. They were also legally obligated to prevent them, whether they wanted to do so or not. But patriotic Americans are smart enough not to know this.

-- In July of 2001, the Italian city of Genoa hosted an international economic summit. The Italian government, fearing a potential terrorist attack, installed anti-aircraft batteries around the city. What could this mean? If your mind was warped, you might think that since no terrorist group has an air force, the Italians must have been worried about terrorists flying hijacked airplanes.

-- During the Genoa summit, President Bush and the rest of the American delegation didn't sleep at the hotel with all the other delegates. They stayed on an aircraft carrier offshore, where anti-aircraft security was even better. If you've had too much to drink, you might assume the Americans were even more worried than the Italians.

-- Less than two months later, Bush and others in his administration claimed to have been caught by surprise, and said no one could have imagined terrorists using a hijacked airplane to attack a building. And you might wonder: if they were so afraid of it in July, why couldn't they imagine it in September? But that's a lunatic thought.

-- According to the official timelines, the FBI knew the names of all 19 hijackers before the FAA knew that 4 airplanes had been hijacked. You might ask yourself how the FBI knew the identity of the hijackers before the FAA knew the planes had been hijacked, but only if you were hallucinating.

-- We have never seen any credible video evidence that any of the 19 hijackers were in any of the airports from which the hijacked flights originated, on the day of the attacks. Shortly after the attacks, FBI agents were reportedly working double-shifts, scanning the airport security videos for signs of the hijackers. But later, we were told no security videos from those airports were available, because their recording systems had failed. If you were unreasonably suspicious, you might wonder whether this was true.

-- Shortly after the FBI identified the dead hijackers, at least six of them contacted major news agencies to say that they were still alive, that they'd had nothing to do with the attacks, and that they were surprised to see their names and faces on the news. The FBI never changed its original list, nor did it acknowledge that its list could not possibly be correct. But fixation on such minor details is a sure sign of mental illness.

-- The World Trade Center complex consisted of seven buildings, and all seven were destroyed on 9/11, although only the Twin Towers (Buildings 1 and 2) made an impact on the news cycle. But it would be silly to think the other 5 buildings were deliberately ignored.

-- The official report of the 9/11 Commission, which claims to be a complete account of the events of the day, fails to mention the destruction of Buildings 3, 4, 5, and 6, which were also never mentioned in any official reports. This is only to be expected, because the other buildings were less than 100 stories tall.

-- The 9/11 Commission also failed to mention the destruction of Building 7, which was the subject of a subsequent NIST report. The existence of the NIST report proves beyond any doubt that the 9/11 Commission did not tell us the whole story, although the Commission specifically claimed to have done so. But nobody in his right mind would be concerned about such an irrelevant detail.

-- The destruction of Building 7 was reported by both BBC and CNN, more than twenty minutes before it happened. To this day we have had no credible explanation for how this could have happened. But only a crackpot would expect or require one.

-- The jumbo jet that allegedly hit the Pentagon left a hole much smaller than itself, but immediately after the crash, no airplane parts could be seen outside the building. If you wonder why not, you are seriously deranged.

-- We were told that the plane nearly melted on impact, flowed through the small hole in a semi-liquid state, and wound up inside the building, where none of it was found because it had vaporized. And you might wonder how the plane could have melted, when all the other planes that have ever crashed, in the entire history of aviation, have crumpled and broken apart -- but only if you were unhinged.

-- According to the official story, the hijackers who attacked the Pentagon were identified by DNA analysis of their remains. You might be tempted to ask: What can vaporize an airplane while leaving human DNA intact? But that's a stupid question.

-- After Flight 93 crashed at Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the first responders on the scene could find no wreckage, no luggage, and no passengers. But only a fool would ask whether an airplane had crashed there at all.

-- Even though the plane dove so deeply into the Shanksville soil that none of it could be seen by any of the eyewitnesses, a passport and a bandana which belonged to one of the hijackers were recovered from the scene. If you were paranoid, you might wonder whether the passport and the bandana had been planted.

-- The alleged hijacker pilots could barely fly single-engine Cessnas and had no experience in the cockpits of large airliners. And yet they are said to have flown with speed and precision that our most proficient pilots cannot match. If you have no imagination, you might wonder how they did it.

-- All four of the alleged flight paths would have been impossible, because no jumbo jet can fly at the speeds indicated by the official story (more than 500 miles per hour) except at high altitude. Such speeds are simply not possible at or near sea level, for planes which are not designed for it. So, if you are mentally ill, you might wonder what actually hit the buildings.

-- President Bush and Vice-President Cheney testified before the 9/11 Commission on terms that they themselves set: behind closed doors, together, and not under oath, with no notes or recordings permitted to be kept. Therefore the Commission may have conducted the only criminal investigation in history in which suspects were allowed to stipulate the conditions under which they would cooperate. But you won't allow this thought to cross your mind unless you are profoundly anti-American.

-- The 9/11 Commission was nominally headed by Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton, but it was actually run by Philip Zelikow, a specialist in the creation and maintenance of public myths who came to the attention of the PNAC crowd after publishing a paper about catastrophic terrorism and the political uses to which it could be put. None but the most unbalanced would see anything wrong with this.

-- Zelikow began the investigation with a detailed outline of the final report, with chapter titles, section headings, sub-headings, and even sub-sub-headings. And he did his best to keep his outline secret from the Commission staff, some of whom thought they were engaged in a legitimate investigation. But why should he have shown it around? What good would that have done?

-- When an independent researcher asked why the FBI's Most Wanted list had an entry for Osama bin Laden but did not say that he was wanted in connection with the 9/11 attacks, an FBI spokesman revealed that the FBI has no hard evidence linking bin Laden to the attacks. But hard evidence isn't all it's cracked up to be.

-- You may recall that Afghanistan was bombed, invaded, and occupied for allegedly harboring the mastermind behind the attacks. But you have never seen any evidence supporting the assertion that Osama bin Laden was connected to 9/11. The FBI would happily show you some, if it had any. But it doesn't, so let's not dwell on it.

-- Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds testified to Congress for more than 3 hours. When she was finished, her testimony was stricken from the record and she was hit with a State Secrets gag order. Years later, she defied that order and revealed facts which had been kept under wraps for too long, including that Osama bin Laden had enjoyed "an intimate relationship" with the CIA until 9/11. She's what you'd call a seriously disgruntled former employee.

-- An extensive body of evidence indicates that explosives were used in the destruction of the World Trade Center. This evidence includes eyewitness testimony, mainstream media news reports, forensic examination of the remaining steel, and videos in which we can see and hear explosions. According to the defenders of official story, none of this evidence exists. Clearly it would be unpatriotic, and very rude, to contradict them.

-- Five of the nine 9/11 Commissioners are on record as saying they didn't get the story right, that they had been lied to, that the Commission had been set up to fail, and so on. And another would-be Commissioner resigned at the outset, calling the Commission "a national disgrace." But only a madman would expect such honest people to believe the story they've been telling.

-- Five young men were seen dancing and celebrating as the attack on the WTC unfolded. They were found, arrested, and interrogated, but ten weeks later, after considerable political and diplomatic pressure, they were released, having failed multiple polygraph tests. If you have no moral compass, you might see something unseemly in this.

-- It turned out that these men were Israelis and some of them were connected to the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad. After they returned to Israel, they appeared on television and explained that they were in NYC on 9/11 because "our purpose was to document the event." You might think this indicates foreknowledge, but only if you're anti-Semitic.


This list above is woefully incomplete, and some of the items I have omitted may be more important than any of the items I have included.

There are so many missing items that I wouldn't have time to list them all, even if I tried. And you wouldn't have time to read them all, either.

If I added another 20 or 50 items to the list, it would still only amount to the tip of an iceberg.

Furthermore, it could be argued that each item on my list is itself the tip of an iceberg.

For instance, the story of the five dancing Israelis is the tip of the iceberg called "Israeli complicity." But I would have to be anti-Semitic to tell you more about that.




The DEA found Israeli bomb experts amongst a traveling art troupe.

No wonder they where dancing.



Tomorrow is the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 Atrocity....the mass murder of over 3,000 innocent Americans who were working in or happened to be visiting the WTC on September 11, 2015.  I have always been amazed at how the criminally complicit Western Main$tream Media has been able to divert public focus away from the individuals who were wantonly and cold bloodedly murdered on that day.  The perps particularly don't like photos being shown of the "jumpers"....they insist it's "insensitive".....not as insensitive as forcing them to leap from a 100 story building, perhaps, but insensitive just the same.  That's why I'm showing the photos of the jumpers.  These were real human beings....just going about their daily routines...when the perps decided to use their atrocious deaths as a pretext to set in motion the PNAC "attack 7 countries in 5 years" goal that the neocons in the Pentagon had set for the US military.

The story is that people were exiting the buildings in an orderly fashion after the "planes hit" but were ordered back into the buildings by some anonymous voice on a loudspeaker in order to keep the casualty numbers as high as possible.  I remember commenting on forums that if we could find out who made the announcements to return to the buildings...we would be on the way to solving the crime.  But, like so many other pieces of blatant evidence and clues, lying in plain sight....this clue was studiously ignored by the "investigation".

I was watching Dateline NBC" on TV last night.  I like the way the police on the episodes always meticulously examine all the evidence in the the murder under investigation.  No evidentiary stone is left unturned.  The case inevitably ends up in an open court where the evidence is presented and the perp is invariably convicted....and appropriately sentenced Even though the Dateline stories are based on true cases....this kind of "justice" is only meant for the peons and the middle class in the United States.  The elite, the deep state, with its corrupted and subverted agencies like the CIA can get away with the kind of atrocities that happened on 9/11 and afterwards...including the wanton murder of millions in far away countries on the basis of lies.

Each person in the photographs above deserved  precisely the kind of investigation depicted on "Dateline".....preserved crime scene, following up all leads.....identifying and pursuing "persons of interest"....arrest, charging and open trial of ALL suspects....with presentation of ALL relevant evidence.  That Americans can't see the discrepancy between the justice depicted on shows like Dateline...and the "justice" afforded to the 9/11 victims is one of the most disturbing things about US society.

Why weren't the victims in the above photographs given that kind of (i.e., real) "justice"?  Indeed, they haven't received any justice at all to this day....and their spirits are screaming for justice from their graves...if they even have any graves....

As a yearly substitute for justice, the still powerful perps of 9/11, who run the rogue Deep State government that still controls the US to this day...drag out any number of distractions, distortions and red herrings.  This year, they seem to be going with the "Let's blame the Saudis" caper.  Any false hood, no matter how transparent and venal is preferable to justice for the victims.

Yes there's justice for the victims on "Dateline", but no justice for the fallen of 9/11.  I have an idea...why doesn't "Dateline" cover what happened on 9/11!?  Oh, I forgot...NBC is the same TV network that recently lied about Erdogon's whereabouts the night of the attempted coup...thus outing themselves as assets of the CIA.


Northerntruthseeker Rant For Sunday, September 11th, 2016

"The oddest part of my viewing of the 9/11 events (while at home that day from my regular two-day-a-week adjunct teaching position) is that waaaay before the scene with the girl reporter saying that Building 7 had also fallen into its basement like a deflated stack of pancakes was that by then it seemed pretty clear from the amateurish (almost slapsticky) reporting amid the terrified confusion shown by the people caught unaware on the street that it all must have been a joke on the stoopids of the USA USA USA! I mean, steel-reinforced pillars melting from aircraft fires? Multi-story buildings disintegrating in under 10 seconds? NORAD flummoxed over and over by cave-dwellers wielding box-cutters who flunked flight school (and probably every other school they attended)? That Pentagon strike sealed the deal for this ex-DoD contractor. It was almost too much that I knew the NORAD procedures which were clearly in abeyance that day. Let alone the Pentagon's.

The next day in class when my students begged for my opinion about the somewhat obvious well-planned implosion of the buildings, I had no difficulty agreeing with them that it violated the laws of physics let alone those of common sense - and the deplorable condition of the American economy came up in class discussion right after that. Thus the Dubya "Go shopping!" dictum drew gasps and outbursts of stunned laughter from the room's sharpies. Yeah. You suckers better start borrowing and spending hard....." -- Only Damn Fools and Old Fools Fools Still Believe the Official 9/11 Story

9/11 Revisited

"Since the towers fell on 9/11, the American people have been treated like enemy combatants, to be spied on, tracked, scanned, frisked, searched, subjected to all manner of intrusions, intimidated, invaded, raided, manhandled, censored, silenced, shot at, locked up, and denied due process.

In allowing ourselves to be distracted by terror drills, foreign wars, color-coded warnings, underwear bombers and other carefully constructed exercises in propaganda, sleight of hand, and obfuscation, we failed to recognize that the true enemy to freedom was lurking among us all the while.

The U.S. government now poses a greater threat to our freedoms than any terrorist, extremist or foreign entity ever could.

While nearly 3,000 people died in the 9/11 attacks, the U.S. government and its agents have easily killed at least ten times that number of civilians in the U.S. and abroad since 9/11 through its police shootings, SWAT team raids, drone strikes and profit-driven efforts to police the globe, sell weapons to foreign nations, and foment civil unrest in order to keep the military industrial complex gainfully employed. (Syria’s bloody civil war in which CIA-armed militias have been fighting FBI-armed militias is a prime example of the government’s Machiavellian schemes gone awry.)

No, the U.S. government is not the citizenry’s friend, nor is it our protector, and life in the United States of America post-9/11 is no picnic.

Here’s an A-to-Z primer to spell out exactly what government tyranny means post 9/11.....



"9/11 Truth Activists and Researchers Prepare for the 15th Anniversary

By Derrick Broze
September 1, 2016

As the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaches, the 9/11 Truth movement is preparing to host protests and conferences around the United States. 

Fifteen years of lies. Fifteen years of “War on Terror.” Fifteen years of warrantless domestic surveillance. Fifteen years of increasing militarization of the police. Fifteen years of manufactured terrorists and false flag terror attacks.

Each of these dilemmas can be traced back to the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York City. From the moment the news pundits decided that Osama Bin Laden was responsible for bringing down the World Trade Center towers, attacking the Pentagon, and other attempted attacks – the American people have been fed a lie. For the last 15 years thousands of documentaries (a few of higher quality than others), researchers, firefighters, architects, engineers, pilots, psychologists, and 9/11 victims’ family members have analyzed, questioned and challenged the official version of events.

The growth of the movement seeking truth about 9/11/01 has manifested in a wide range of alternative theories about what may have actually taken place that day. Some of these theories examine the physical aspects of the collapse of the Twin Towers and the lesser-known World Trade Center 7, which also collapsed despite not being hit by a plane or consumed by a burning inferno as originally reported. These theories encompass a wide set of beliefs, including the idea that nuclear weapons, military explosives, or some type of “directed energy” or exotic weapons were used to drop the towers at nearly free fall speed.

There are theories about elements of the U.S. government either allowing or participating in the planning of the attacks. There are theories about people in positions of power or influence being warned not to go to work on 9/11, theories about whether or not the planes were even real, and theories on the possibility that the event was a psychological and spiritual attack on the human psyche itself.

For all the theorizing, the area where the official story is showing the strongest signs of cracking is in the discussion of who financed and supported the attacks. Indeed, on Friday July 15, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) published the newly declassified 28 pages of the 2002 Joint Congressional Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001. The 28 pages were classified by former President George W. Bush shortly after the report was released in 2002.

The long-classified pages make up the bulk of a section titled “Part 4: Finding, Discussion and Narrative Regarding Certain Sensitive National Security Matters.” Former Senator Bob Graham, a previous chair for the House Intelligence Committee who has been extensively involved in the fight to release the pages, told CNN that he was “very pleased” by the announcement.

“It is going to increase the questioning of the Saudis’ role supporting the hijackers,” Graham told CNN. “I think of this almost as the 28 pages are sort of the cork in the wine bottle. And once it’s out, hopefully the rest of the wine itself will start to pour out.”

Despite the release of the 28 pages, many Americans and researchers of the 9/11 attacks are not prepared to end their search for truth. Although the Saudi government continues to deny any wrongdoing, the documents show clear ties to Saudi Arabia. Still, many in the 9/11 Truth movement are cautious of the 28 pages, with some calling the whole fiasco a psychological operation being conducted on the American people. What is the purpose of the PsyOp? The idea would be that “the powers that wish they were” allow a controlled release of the low hanging fruit (28 pages) and focus attention on Saudi Arabia rather than possible connections to the U.S. government, Pakistan, or Israel.

The fact that these pages would be released at all should be celebrated, but we must not allow the 9/11 Truth Movement to rest for a single moment. With the 15th anniversary approaching this a grand  opportunity to have conversations about the many, many questions surrounding the attacks. After all, even if the Saudis were involved, it does not explain how the buildings could fall at near free-fall speed or how or why World Trade Center 7 fell despite not being hit by a plane.

Regardless of whether or not you believe the 28 pages are the end of the 9/11 Truth search or just another distraction, the American people are tired of being lied to by their government. There is a growing discontent in the nation right now and many of the crimes perpetuated by the government against the people have been allowed in the name of keeping people safe from terror attacks. Simply put, exposing 9/11 destroys the whole Police and Surveillance State.

For 15 years architects, engineers, actors, scientists, pilots, firefighters, activists, and family members of the victims have raised a wide range of questions related to the funding of the attacks, the physics of the buildings’ collapse, the possibility of controlled demolition or other exotic weapon used to bring the buildings down, and much, much more.

For the 15th anniversary, the collective “9/11 Truth” movement will descend on New York City to protest and rally in the streets. If you have questions about 9/11 please come to New York City or organize in your city. Activists with We Are Change NYC will rally at Ground Zero and other important sites throughout the city on Saturday September 10 and Sunday September 11.

In addition to street action, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, the Lawyers Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, and other co-sponsors have organized the Justice In Focus: 9/11 Symposium. The conference will feature keynote addresses from respected legal figures, as well as panel discussions on the role of the Deep State and the significance of the recently declassified 28 Pages, presentations by movement leaders and researchers, and day-long evidentiary hearings on the World Trade Center’s destruction, which will be conducted by a panel of lawyers. (FB Event)

Speakers and panel discussions will include:

"6 Hard Facts Americans Forgot About 9/11 After Being Reminded Every Year to “Never Forget”

By Matt Agorist
September 11, 2016

On this, the 15th anniversary of one of the most tragic days in recent American history, U.S. citizens will be bombarded with patriotic imagery, messages, and the oft-repeated 9/11 slogan of “Never Forget.”

Over the course of the day, mainstream media and the like will show the horrific images of planes crashing into towers and the disturbing scene of ground zero in the aftermath.

In the midst of all the grieving, the flag waving, and the speeches from opportunistic presidential hopefuls, there will be an uncomfortable moment of silence. This silence, however, will not be in remembrance of the victims that day, but rather the complete lack of coverage given to the unanswered questions and suspicious facts surrounding that fateful morning.

A slew of unprovable conspiracy theories is associated with the events leading up to and occurring on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. However, the Free Thought Project does not delve into such speculation. We only deal in facts.

The list below contains six hard-hitting facts that the mainstream media and the political powers have relentlessly attempted to keep hidden from the public.

Fact 1:

Coming in at number 1 is perhaps one of the most perplexing of all the facts. Amazingly enough, some folks still believe that only two towers fell that day. The fact that Tower 7, a 47-story building, collapsed, was but a small blip in the media. Since 9/11, World Trade Center Tower 7 is rarely, if at all mentioned in the mainstream media.

Insanely enough, when Tower 7 is mentioned to some people, they think that it’s a conspiracy theory that it fell. 

However, Tower 7, which was not hit by a plane, in fact, collapsed into its own footprint at free-fall speed. 

The National Institute of Standards and Technology, (the government agency assigned to investigate the building collapse in the video above) attributes the collapse to the failure of a single column, in a complex scenario involving thermal expansion of beams supporting the column, caused by office furniture burning; a theory that is largely disputed by many experts.

Fact 2:

BBC, CNN, FOX, and MSNBC reported the collapse of WTC 7 — well before it happened.

Fact 3:

The 9/11 Commission was railroaded. Not only were the commissioners given extremely limited funds to conduct their investigation, but they were also met with dead ends in almost every direction.

For starters, only $15 million was given to investigate 9/11. Compare that to the over $60 million that was spent investigating Clinton’s affairs with Monica and the travesty becomes greater. This was the largest act of murder in recent US history, and more money was spent investigating a philandering president!

Also, Senator Max Cleland, who resigned from the 9/11 Commission after calling it a “national scandal,” stated in a 2003 PBS interview,
I’m saying that’s deliberate. I am saying that the delay in relating this information to the American public out of a hearing… series of hearings, that several members of Congress knew eight or ten months ago, including Bob Graham and others, that was deliberately slow walked… the 9/11 Commission was deliberately slow walked, because the Administration’s policy was, and its priority was, we’re gonna take Saddam Hussein out.
In 2006, the Washington Post reported that several members of the 9/11 Commission suspected deception on part of the Pentagon. As reported,
Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon’s initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.
Fact 4:

Staying on the topic of the 9/11 commission, in 2004, President George Bush and VP Dick Cheney told the Commission that they would not be formally interviewed in relation to the attacks on September 11.

On April 27, 2004 the White House released a statement saying there would be no recording or formal transcription of the interview. The duo also demanded to be interviewed together, against the wishes of the commissioners.

According to the New York Times, 
Under a pact with the White House that allowed all its 10 members in the interview, the commission is permitted to take a note taker, but not a recording device. The panel said it did not press for a formal transcription of the session, letting the White House decide.
Fact 5:

After the myriad of holes began to form in the official narrative, several dedicated engineers and architects took to their own investigation. Today, there are over 2,300 architects and engineers who’ve signed on to the initiative, all declaring the official story to be false.

Fact 6:

The US government admitted they covered up the fact that the Saudi Arabian government supported the hijackers.

“I had to stop every couple pages and…try to rearrange my understanding of history. It challenges you to rethink everything.” – Congressman Thomas Massie describing his experience reading the 28 pages in March 2014.

“The 28 Pages” – part of an 838-page Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Community Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 11, 2001 – have been kept almost entirely classified since 2002.

Former Sen. Bob Graham, a co-chairman of the investigation committee and strong advocate of declassifying the information, said, “The 28 pages primarily relate to who financed 9/11 and they point a very strong finger at Saudi Arabia as being the principal financier.”

In July, the 28 pages were finally released, although many parts are still redacted. They show that Graham was right—several figures in the Saudi Arabian government provided assistance to the 9-11 hijackers from within the U.S.

“There is information, primarily from FBI sources, that at least two of those individuals were alleged by some to be Saudi intelligence officers,” reads the first of 28 pages. “The Joint Inquiry’s review confirmed that the Intelligence Community also has information, much of which has yet to be independently verified, indicating that individuals associated with the Saudi Government in the United States may have other ties to al-Qa’ida and other terrorist groups.”

As your social media news feeds begin filling up with patriotic memes reminding you to pledge your unwavering support for the warfare state, share this article to show what it means to be a real “patriot” — a person who’s not scared to stand up for the truth, even when the truth is unpopular.


With the Anniversary of 911 coming, it makes me wonder when the truth will surface. So many questions that go unanswered....

A New Strategy for 9/11 Truth

"9/11’s Known Knowns

September 11, 2016
Source: Who What Why, Russ Baker

Years of willful deception, the sands of time, and simple neglect all tend to cloud our perception of the reality of history. This is especially true for politically radioactive topics like 9/11.

With the debate over 9/11 heating up as the 15th anniversary of that fateful day draws near, it’s a good time to get back up to speed. WhoWhatWhy believes there are essential pillars of the 9/11 debate that must be acknowledged by all parties before any healthy discussion of that paradigm-changing topic can take place.

What follows is a refresher list of “known knowns” — select, broad aspects of 9/11 that are at present beyond reasonable doubt:

•  The money trail was never followed to its logical conclusion. The 9/11 Commission concluded  the question of who funded the attacks “was of little practical significance.”

•  The Bush White House pushed back against any independent investigation into 9/11.

•  Once the White House agreed to an independent investigation, it provided a budget of $3 million, or 27% of the amount requested by 9/11 Commission co-chairs, Thomas Keane and Lee Hamilton.

•  The Bush White House’s first choice to lead the 9/11 Commission was the highly controversial Henry Kissinger. Under intense pressure due to conflicts of interest, he resigned a month later.

•  The 9/11 Commission was compromised by having White House policy advisor Philip Zelikow as its executive director. He was alleged to have been in close contact with controversial White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove throughout the investigation.

•  The 9/11 Commission — the only independent investigation into the greatest terror attack in US history — began with a particularly benign mandate. The Preface to the report asserted: “Our aim has not been to assign individual blame,” but “to identify lessons learned.”

•  Saudi agents — some with ties to the White House — sent financial and logistical support to men who then provided that support to the hijackers. That’s according to the Congressional 2002 Joint Inquiry report, multiple media accounts and at least one FBI agent who worked on 9/11 cases.

•  Efforts to further investigate Saudi nationals were resisted by the White House and CIA over and over again.

•  Indian intelligence, corroborated by the FBI, showed a wire transfer of $100,000 from the phone of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Mahmud Ahmad to 9/11 lead hijacker Mohammed Atta in 2000. Ahmad (also reported as Ahmed) was in Washington D.C. on the morning of the attacks, meeting with US lawmakers.

•  The $100,000 transaction was never mentioned in the 9/11 Commission report — and Ahmad was never detained for questioning.

•  The “28 pages” from a redacted chapter of the 2002 Joint Inquiry report into the attacks, we were told, had “nothing to do with national security.” But national security was the very reason given for withholding them for 14 years by both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama White Houses.

•  Those 28 pages were partially released in July of 2016, but were still heavily redacted at crucial passages.

•  Multiple, overlapping war game drills created some level of confusion at the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and the Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) on the  morning of the attacks.

•  Around noon on 9/11, air traffic controllers who handled some of the hijacked flights made a recording recalling their experiences of the events from a few hours earlier. The tape was later destroyed by an unidentified FAA supervisor without any transcripts taken.

•  In the days before 9/11, highly abnormal levels of put options — bets that a stock price will fall — were in place on major US stock markets for not only the airlines involved, but also for multiple financial giants that suffered significant losses in the attacks.

•  The SEC’s investigation into those irregularities gave little details for their benign conclusion that all trades were legitimate and curiously destroyed all their records.

•  Blaming Iraq was the talking point advanced by the Bush administration within days of the attacks. Later, multiple reports surfaced alleging that the neoconservatives who made up the hawkish Project for a New American Century think tank and the Bush Administration had been planning for (and discussing the need to publicly justify) an invasion of Iraq (and Afghanistanlong before 9/11.

•  Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with 9/11.

•  Opium production (used to make heroin) in Afghanistan plummeted under Taliban rule in 2001, but then ballooned again when US forces retook control of the region.

•  In the late 90s, the US supported the Taliban and its agenda for a unified Afghanistan. Three years before 9/11, US oil giant Unocal pulled out of a long-negotiated deal to build natural gas and oil pipelines through the region, from the resource-rich Caspian basin south to the Indian Ocean. Skeptics insist the US government and Unocal suddenly saw the Taliban, which provided a base of operations for Al-Qaeda, as an obstacle to those pipeline plans.

This is by no means a full list of inadequately-investigated facts surrounding 9/11.

People loyal to the official narrative at first denied the veracity of many of these facts. Later, when the corroborations and confirmations became overwhelming, they shifted gears, insisting these “knowns” didn’t matter.

We invite you to add your own bullet points in the Comments section below, though we encourage you to focus on what has been well-documented, i.e., what is available for all to verify on the public record.


We know who did it and why.


Fantastic Tales Americans Must Believe To Be Admitted to Polite Society

Posted on   by 

Americans have lost jobs and even been killed by their government because they were unwilling to at least appear to believe Fantastic Tales that couldn’t possibly be true. But we are rapidly approaching a transition period when we will be able to actually Tell the Truth in public.

The following is an example of a Fantastic Tale: On Tuesday June 4, 1968 Robert Kennedy won the California Democratic primary. We are told that Sirhan Sirhan was the lone assassin. Men and women in Polite Society are required to believe that Sirhan’s 8 shot 22 caliber revolver fired 13 times without reloading. Sirhan who was standing in front of RFK was able to fire five “Magic Bullets” that flew upward and over Kennedy’s head, went past him and then down sharply only to reverse course, travel downwards only to reverse course again and strike him from behind at an upward angle. Somehow the powder burns from these “Magic Bullets” followed their rather strange trajectory sufficiently so as to convince the Coroner that they had been fired only inches away from the likely 1968 Democratic Presidential nominee.

Another example: Michael Hastings had written an expose of Stanley McChrystal entitled The Runaway General for Rolling Stone magazine. More recently before his death he had written an expose of Bowe Bergdahl who had deserted and went over to the Taliban. President Obama had exchanged five high value prisoners for Bergdahl. Hastings was also working on an expose of the CIA. He went on the Young Turks TV show and said that investigative journalists ought to declare war on the Obama administration because they have declared war on us.

We are told that Hastings died accidentally after driving recklessly. There was more damage to the rear of his car than in the front which had hit a tree. University professors have shown how modern cars can be electronically hijacked and driven remotely at speeds of 100 mph. His Mercedes car engine was hurled 200 feet down the street at a sharp angle by an explosion. Hastings had contacted his friends and a lawyer to express his fears that the FBI was following him wherever he went.

We must believe that Americans are the Good Guys and that our enemies are the Bad People.

John Kiriakou was a CIA agent who blew the whistle on US government torture. Of all the people in the CIA torture program, Kiriakou was the only one to go to prison for it. And he was the one who revealed what was going wrong. He spent 2 years in prison. Bradley Manning revealed  a video of US helicopter pilots killing unarmed civilians and reporters. He is still in prison but those who deliberately target hospitals for attack are in fact running our government meaning our nation is led by war criminals.

We are supposed to be waging a war on drugs. But the Bush admin told its allies months before 911 that we were going to invade Afghanistan. The only reason to be there after 14 years seems to be the opium. The Global Hawk is a drone version of the U-2 spy plane. Later versions of the Global Hawk have a compartment capable of flying 3,000 pounds of opium past customs to American air bases from which they can be sent to America at a tremendous profit to the men who own the United States government.

Freeway Ricky Ross was seriously harmed by the public schools. If his school district had taught him to read, he could have won an athletic scholarship in tennis and become a school teacher if not a professional athlete. But he was illiterate and instead had to make hundred of millions of dollars selling cocaine. He says that a Hollywood movie glorifying black drug dealers gave him the impetus to choose crime as a career. Ross made connections with Nicaraguan drug dealers. He did not learn until the end of his criminal career that he was working for the CIA. He could have been released much sooner from prison if he had kept his mouth shut as he had been told.

Ross has pointed out that black people using crack cocaine on a first offense were being sentenced to ten years while whites using standard cocaine were given probation. There is no war against drugs but there is a War Against America. A young man killed 4 people but avoided jail because his expensive lawyer convinced the judge that his client had grown up without learning that rules applied to him. His parents were rich and had sheltered him from the consequences of his actions.

Hillary Clinton is a career criminal who has stolen billions of dollars from the people of Haiti and Africa. She has sold American foreign policy for cash and cannot even be indicted. It seems that in America only the poor and the middle class go to jail while everyone in  Washington or on Wall Street is immune from prosecution.

Americans are not allowed to believe in the laws of physics. On 9-11-2001 three buildings fell down at nearly free fall speed but only 2 of the 3 had been hit by airplanes. We had many witnesses amongst the janitorial staff and the building engineers that there were explosions in the sub-basements before the planes hit the World Trade Center Towers. It is sort of basic science that the fire does not start until you light the match. But on 9-11 we must believe that the jet and its fuel which were more than 30 seconds away from impact somehow caused explosions in the floors below the ground level.

We have seen videos of the plane fuel tanks exploding on impact with the Towers so there was not much fuel left in the planes to cause fires. But somehow the fuel was able to explode and  pulverize 440,000 cubic yards (336,404.14 cubic meters) of reinforced concrete from WTC Towers 1 and 2 turning them into dust.

The North and South Towers had 47 central core steel columns and 236 perimeter columns for a total of 283. For the buildings to fall straight down at nearly free fall speed all 283 connections from the columns to each of the 110 floors had to be cut within a second of each other. Keeping in mind open air fires cannot reach less than half of the temperature required to melt steel, how do you explain (2 X 110 X 283) 62,260 connections in the two Towers all being severed simultaneously by an office fire? Isn’t this a definition of a controlled demolition?

But we are required to believe the impossible.

Americans were taught lies sufficiently well to get them to enter WW I but after the war they became disillusioned when they learned the truth. America went to war so the Jews of Russia could turn that nation into a Communist dictatorship and Palestine could become a Jewish colony. Many wealthy Gentiles wanted war because they could make billions of dollars selling weapons.

After World War II, the people of Europe and America were told many lies about the Holohoax to maintain the prestige of liars. The International Red Cross had sent observers into all the German concentration camps including Auschwitz. They had unrestricted access to prisoners and had some of them report on conditions. There were no claims of gas chambers until after the war was over. And these were unbelievable.

The 1950 World Almanac using Jewish sources said there were 800,000 more Jews alive in 1950 than in 1940. The Jewish witnesses claimed they pulled bodies from the gas chambers 5 minutes after the last person had died inside. America had gas chambers in some states more than a decade after the war. If the Zionists had studied how Americans executed prisoners, they would have known that they had to first neutralize the cyanide gas as it is deadly. You cannot just walk into a room full of cyanide without gas masks and gloves and pull bodies out as the Jewish witnesses claimed. Opening the doors prior to neutralization would have killed everyone in the area. These are just fairy tales for children.

The world economy will collapse either before the November elections or soon after. The US could plunge into chaos when the Dollar Dies and the Nationwide Food Riots begin. We will no longer have a Polite Society. Impolite men and women will create new nations to replace those that had been in North America, Europe  and elsewhere.

We personally might not survive but what is coming our way but at least we will no longer have to believe fairy tales as the gospel truth.


"A Brief Statement on My 9/11 Coverage Today

by Scott Creighton

As you all know after being inundated with sappy piano riffs and dusty American flags plastered across the entire spectrum of the complicit corporate media this morning, today is the 15th anniversary of 9/11. It has been elevated, as many of us suspected it would be, to a holy day, the holiest of holy days, in this, the beginning of the New American Century. Rudy G is running around from one network interview to another touting his heroics and “leadership” on that day as he was famously filmed running away from the emergency control center in Building 7, some 8 hours before it crumbled to the ground for no apparent reason. How many first responders and volunteers from that day suffer to this day or have already died because he came out and lied and told them the air was safe to breathe downtown? A real hero he was indeed.

Many of you already know how much research and work I did over the years on the subject of the truth of 9/11. For those of you who don’t, there is a list I did last year of my best 96 articles on the subject which you can find…

Today, I will be posting some videos and articles from other folks regarding 9/11. It’s just a hodge-podge of some of the best or most recent work that I have run across which I think help folks understand there is a lot more to the story than meets the eye. It is by no means the totality of research on the subject and there may be better versions or articles out there and if you have a favorite, please feel free to post links or videos as you see fit.

Though I am already clearly on the record that I do not support ridiculous deliberate disinfo like “ray beams from space”, “holograms”, “mini nukes”, “buried nukes”, “empty buildings”, “fly over theory”, “nanothermite”, “lizard people” or other such BS I encourage folks to engage in an open discussion if they wish about whatever evidence they wish to bring to the table today. This is an open forum… today…

Smoke and Dust (repost)
Some of you know I am still looking into the use of det cord in the process of controlled demolition in the twin towers.  Well, during the other part of the research I am doing, I noticed something else; color differences between the smoke from the explosions and the dust kicked up from the demoed concrete slabs.  I noticed this first when watching a video of another “top down demolition” filmed years ago.

I decided to put some pictures together and see what you guys thought about it. This first one here shows the buildings construction. Obviously, WTC 2 image is from construction and the Top-Down Demo still is from after final prep. But you can see they are both steel framed, reinforced concrete slab buildings. (notice on the 3rd floor of the Top Down shot, you can see through to the other side.)

9/11 Shock Opera… Act 4 – Building 7 and Flight 93: The Grand Finale that Wasn’t (repost)
Take yourself back to that day when you watched or listened to the attack on America; the day that everything changed. Remember where you were, who you were with, and most importantly, how you felt.

Think about the last few events of that day; how the news of the Pentagon being hit by something was followed almost immediately by the unexpected complete collapse of the South Tower (WTC 2). Remember how we had barely recovered from that shock, one that we were forced to watch in horror over and over again, when the unspeakable happened; the North Tower (WTC 1) fell in exactly the same way; at an eerie and almost supernatural speed as plumes of smoke and steel columns flung across city blocks.

Now I want you to put yourself in that very moment, once again, and prepare yourself for the missing final act that never took place and yet may be one of the most telling and condemning pieces of evidence in the ongoing unofficial investigation of 9/11.

The 9/11 Shock Opera

–  Flight 93 and Building 7 –  The Grand Finale … that wasn’t.

The North Tower has fallen and people are in absolute disbelief.  The grey faces staring back at us through the live news reports tell the story; they are blank with shock like infants in a war zone.

The 46,000 Missing Trusses of 9/11 (repost)
(also read Sneak Peak: Revised Demolition Theory Hypothesis)

According to the official explanation of the collapse of the Twin Towers on Sept. 11th, 2001… the initial plane crashes damaged the core structure of the towers enough so that when the resulting fires “weakened” the floor trusses, the result was that the remaining floors above the areas of the plane crash and fires crashed down on the undamaged parts of the buildings, and “pulverized” them in a gravity driven demolition of sorts.

This “official” explanation, which if left unchallenged, stands as the basis for the endless “War on Terror”, the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the attacks on the general population of Pakistan, the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, warrentless and illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens, and various other assaults on our democratic freedoms… is basically a lie.

It is impossible.

Sometimes in an investigation, what you don’t find at the crime scene is just as important as what you do find.  Provided you know what to look for and you understand why it is or isn’t there.

With that in mind, I offer for your consideration, the great mystery of the missing Trusses and Floor-Pans of the World Trade Center towers 1 and 2… and the (estimated) 10 tons of “iron-rich” spheres found in the dust at Ground Zero by every single investigative agency that has bothered to look.

"9/11: A Conspiracy Theory

by Jim Stone
Sep 11 2016

I was tempted to post nothing on 911

This is the day anyone with more than a single firing neuron knows we were all scammed.

The wackiest "911 conspiracy theory" of all

The theory goes like this: On September 11, 2001, 19 arabs with box cutters and plastic knives conspired to board 4 airliners without ever showing up on the flight manifests. All 4 airlines were successfully hijacked by these conspiring arabs with mere plastic knives, and at most 1 inch metal blades, and flown by failed cessna pilots like experts into 3 of the targets, while the 4th airplane hit a field and left a crater but no debris.

The attack came as a total surprise to the Air Force and Norad, who never saw it coming, and remained blind to it all for a full hour after all planes hit their targets, with the final target being the greatest military command headquarters in the world. Norad suddenly could not see airplanes if their transponders were switched off, thus proving active radar is a hoax.

Somehow, despite being fully rated to take a full speed impact from the similarly sized and faster flying 707, both world trade center towers fell into their own footprints (rather than off to the side in one direction like you would expect if an airplane impact weakened one side of them) because Arabs are magic and Allah was with them. And out of sympathy, while mourning for the loss of it's two big brothers, WTC 7 which never got hit by an airplane at all, cried itself to death and fell down too.

And we know this is a true story, because despite never having seat back phones or any satellite uplink available, calls were made from cell phones (which could not connect at speeds over 120 mph because they have to arrange which tower will take the call from a moving object next, and could not do that on time from the planes which were going 550 mph.) But we know it worked anyway because after Cee Cee Lyle's "plastic knives and box cutters" cell phone call ended, her coach told her she did a great job and if she did not do a great job, the entire Arab plan would have failed. And if you don't believe how GREAT CeeCee did, just listen to her boss tell her how great she did! Her boss would never lie!

So there you have it - the official story. The wackiest 911 conspiracy theory of all!

The entire 911 story hinges on CeeCee Lyle's phone call from flight 93.  But if you actually get ahold of this phone call, you can clearly hear it was faked, because CeeCee's coach is in the background saying she did it great!

911 Flight 93 phone call busted. CeeCee Lyle read her arab incriminating yet fully scripted phone call from the ground, in a call center, and if you listen to the call, you can hear her coach say "that was great!" after she finishes speaking. You can also hear a coach or manager say "allright" in the background of the enhanced version, and AFTER THAT you can hear her coach say "sorry" for saying "that was great" too loud and possibly having it be audible in the message. CeeCee Lyles flight 93 911 phone call enhanced and original This kills the entire arab/911 meme, obviously the calls were faked.

Here is the best I have for 911. This has been, for many people, myth. Resurrected from the dead:

Carl Cameron's BANNED 2001 911 Fox News Report linking Israelis to 911 RESCUED!

This series by Carl Cameron,which Fox News released in 2001 was supposed to have 12 parts. Only 4 parts ever got broadcast, and all 4 are in this ONE MP3. Even these 4 parts should be enough to wake your sleeping zombie sheep, they prove Israel is raping the U.S. and was heavily involved in 911 And it all went out on FOX NEWS, IT IS ALL HERE, ARCHIVE AND POST!!!

Note: Much of the super damning stuff is in the second half.

This was broadcast on Fox News  Carl Cameron's expose THIS IS A MUST LISTEN, IT TOTALLY BLOWS ISRAEL OUT OF THE WATER and after seeing this I can't believe Fox News ever got this published.

Key points:

1. After 911, Israeli companies tipped off perpetrators of 911 to when the FBI, CIA an other American intelligence was onto them, so they could immediately change their identities and prevent the investigations from proceeding. Additionally, once the investigations started, the perpetrators were given the ability to wire tap all of the investigator's phones and other communications via Israeli owned companies and spy infrastructure, to totally circumvent capture. If this does not by itself prove Israel did 911, I do not know what possibly could.

2. Israeli companies tip off Israeli drug dealers to when American investigation efforts have pinned them down, and like the perpetrators of 911, the Israelis then provide even drug dealers with wire taps on the investigators in pursuit of them, to help them completely evade capture.

This Fox News report is SO DAMNING I wonder if Carl Cameron is even alive. This series was shut down 8 out of 12 segments early, because it NAILED THE TRUTH. Much can be extrapolated from even these 4 segments, they prove Israel is America's ENEMY NUMBER ONE, ARCHIVE AND POST!

I really want people to consider this, I am not joking about it

Take a look at this picture of the very large aircraft hitting the bridge in Taiwan. From this photo below, you can clearly see that the aircraft had a very strong wing drag on the road surface, only to have the guard rail snap off a very large section of wing. This picture proves that the bridge took the full brunt of a hit that put the full strength of the aircraft's wing into that guard rail.

It is the entire end of the wing snapped off, and after looking at this photo which clearly shows this fact:

I want you to again take a look at the road and the guard rail in the next photo.  Initially I thought the top of the guard rail was ornamental aluminum or stainless steel. But from this photo, a nice clear one, you can see that THE ONLY PIECE BROKEN ON THAT BRIDGE WAS MADE OUT OF PLASTIC. There is no trace of any damage anywhere else on the bridge whatsoever, so I want to once again ask a serious pointed question toward the Dimona tribe:


Take your pick with what you believe I guess, but as I see it, there is NO DAMN WAY a normal Boeing did that damage to the WTC.

If airplanes did the WTC, they would had to have had armor plated steel wings or they would have had to have had their wings packed with explosives from wing tip to wing tip, the size and flight parameters of the Taiwan plane were too close to the 911 planes to have no damage to that bridge other than to a plastic piece on top of the guard rail if the 911 planes really were as stated. Obviously they were not when the Taiwan plane did absolutely no damage to anything solid on that bridge and the 911 planes cut super strong solid steel beams in half and pulverized concrete to boot. I CALL B.S. ON THE PLANE IMPACTS, THOSE WERE NOT AMERICAN AIRLINES PLANES, THEY WERE EITHER ENTIRELY FAKE AND GREEN SCREENED IN OR THEY WERE HEAVILY FORTIFIED WITH IRON ARMOR PLATE AND WING LOADED EXPLOSIVES.

Airplanes really do come apart like aluminum foil when they hit anything solid at all, they fly because they are light and dainty and engineered to handle ONE THING: AIR, with which concrete and steel have no common traits. Even a bird can crash a jumbo jet for Gods sake!

I have a boat load of other 911 stuff I could put up, but why bother? Either you know 911 was a false flag psy op, or you are too stupid to be saved. I have all of it - building 7, the micro nuke stuff, explosives in the building yada yada yada but other people have that too, what I put up here is what I have that can't easily be found elsewhere. Anyway, if Hillary is allowed to scam her way in, 911 won't mean jack anyway.

Trump is the candidate that will ensure 911 remains the worst day in American history. Hillary will certainly strive for more!

"9/11: 15 Years Of A Transparent Lie

Paul Craig Roberts
September 10, 2016

There are many conspiracy theories about 9/11. The US government’s own expanation of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory in which a few Saudi Arabians outwitted the American national security state. Little doubt that many of the more imaginative conspiracy theories were created for the purpose of stigmatizing any skepticism, no matter how well reasoned and supported, of the official story.

When thinking about 9/11, it is important to differentiate expert opinion from improbable explanations.

Among the expert opinion are 2,600 structural engineers and high-rise architects who comprise Architects & Engineers for 9/11 truth and have written to Congress asking for a real investigation, Firefighters for 9/11 truth, Pilots for 9/11 truth, physicists and chemists who analyzed the dust from the twin towers and report finding reacted and unreacted materials used in controlled demolitions, and former government officials who understand that a security failure as great as 9/11 would have produced an immediate and exacting investigation.

These groups of qualified and experienced people say that the official story of 9/11 is false.  Architects, engineers, and scientists say that the official story is physically impossible. Firefighters and WTC maintenance personnel say that there were numerous explosions within the towers and that the first explosions were in the sub-basements prior to the buildings being hit by airplanes. Experienced military and civilian pilots say the maneuvers of the aircraft are beyond the capability of the alleged hijackers. Both co-chairman of the 9/11 Commission and the legal counsel have written books in which they have said that information was withheld from the Commission, that the US government lied to the Commission, and that the Commission was set up to fail

In other words, the hard evidence simply does not support the official story.

We know that the official story is false. We don’t know who is responsible or the purpose the event was intended to serve. However, circumstantial evidence strongly supports suspicion of the neoconservatives whose high positions in the government would have enabled them to succeed with a false flag attack and to delay and divert any investigation until the official story was set in stone. We also know from the “dancing Israelis” that elements in the Israeli government had advance notice of the attack as Israeli agents were set up ready to film the destruction of the twin towers.

Neoconservative position papers written in the 1990s called for “a new Pearl Harbor” in order to launch Washington’s wars for hegemony, first in the Middle East.  These position papers signaled out Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Libya for attack prior to the event of 9/11. None of these countries had anything whatsoever to do with the official story of 9/11 that blames Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda, a jihadist group set up by Washington in the 1970s to resist the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan.

None of these countries had jihadist governments. Iran has a muted form of Islamic law, but Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Assad in Syria headed secular governments. Yet, neoconservatives falsely claimed that Saddam Hussein had “al-Qaeda connections.” This lie and the lie that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction that threatened the US were used to invade Iraq under the 9/11 banner. Then the rationale for the invasions changed. 9/11 dropped away, and the “war on terror” and “bringing democracy” took its place.

From my quarter century in Washington, it is clear to me that if such an event as 9/11 had actually happened for the reason given, the White House, Congress, and media would have been screaming for explanation of how a few Arabs outwitted the entire US National Security State—all 16 US intelligence agencies, the security agencies of Washington’s NATO allies and Israel, the National Security Council, Air Traffic Control, and airport security four times in one hour on the same day.  Instead the government refused any inquiry for one year until most of the evidence was destroyed. http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2016/09/government-hid-destroyed-911-evidence.html  That a few Arabs defeated US national security would be the greatest humiliation ever inflicted on a superpower, but no one was held responsible.  This tells me that 9/11 was a State Crime Against Democracy.

9/11 was used by the US government to launch wars that have destroyed in whole or part seven countries, killing millions of peoples and producing millions of refugees.  9/11 was also used to create an American police state, which is a far greater threat to freedom and democracy than Muslim terrorism.


"Are You a Mind-Controlled CIA Stooge?

Paul Craig Roberts
August 31, 2016

Do you smirk when you hear someone question the official stories of Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris or Nice? Do you feel superior to 2,500 architects and engineers, to firefighters, commercial and military pilots, physicists and chemists, and former high government officials who have raised doubts about 9/11? If so, you reflect the profile of a mind-controlled CIA stooge.

The term “conspiracy theory” was invented and put into public discourse by the CIA in 1964 in order to discredit the many skeptics who challenged the Warren Commission’s conclusion that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, who himself was assassinated while in police custody before he could be questioned. The CIA used its friends in the media to launch a campaign to make suspicion of the Warren Commission report a target of ridicule and hostility. This campaign was “one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”

So writes political science professor Lance deHaven-Smith, who in his peer-reviewed book, Conspiracy Theory in America, published by the University of Texas Press, tells the story of how the CIA succeeded in creating in the public mind reflexive, automatic, stigmatization of those who challenge government explanations. This is an extremely important and readable book, one of those rare books with the power to break you out of The Matrix.

Professor deHaven-Smith is able to write this book because the original CIA Dispatch #1035-960, which sets out the CIA plot, was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Apparently, the bureaucracy did not regard a document this old as being of any importance. The document is marked “Destroy when no longer needed,” but somehow wasn’t. CIA Dispatch #1035-960 is reproduced in the book.

The success that the CIA has had in stigmatizing skepticism of government explanations has made it difficult to investigate State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD) such as 9/11. With the public mind programmed to ridicule “conspiracy kooks,” even in the case of suspicious events such as 9/11 the government can destroy evidence, ignore prescribed procedures, delay an investigation, and then form a political committee to put its imprimatur on the official story. Professor deHaven-Smith notes that in such events as Kennedy’s assassination and 9/11 official police and prosecutorial investigations are never employed. The event is handed off to a political commission.

Professor deHaven-Smith’s book supports what I have told my readers: the government controls the story from the beginning by having the official explanation ready the moment a SCAD occurs. This makes any other explanation a “conspiracy theory.” This is the way Professor deHaven-Smith puts it:

“A SCAD approach to memes assumes further that the CIA and other possibly participating agencies are formulating memes well in advance of operations, and therefore SCAD memes appear and are popularized very quickly before any competing concepts are on the scene.”

The CIA’s success in controlling public perception of what our Founding Fathers would have regarded as suspicious events involving the government enables those in power positions within government to orchestrate events that serve hidden agendas. The events of September 11 created the new paradigm of endless war in behalf of a Washington-dominated world. The CIA’s success in controlling public perceptions has made it impossible to investigate elite political crimes. Consequently, it is now possible for treason to be official US government policy.

Professor deHaven-Smith’s book will tell you the story of the assassination of President Kennedy by elements of the US military, CIA, and Secret Service. Just as the Warren Commission covered up the State Crime Against Democracy, Professor deHaven-Smith shows why we should doubt the official 9/11 story. And anything else that the government tells us.

Read this book. It is short. It is affordable. It is reality preparation. It will innoculate you against being a dumbshit, insouciant, brainwashed American. I am surprised that the CIA has not purchased the entire print run and burned the books. Perhaps the CIA feels secure from its success in brainwashing the public and does not believe that American democracy and accountable government can be restored.


I pray he is resting in peace and not spinning in his grave.

All history now:

"In 1297, Scottish rebels led by William Wallace and Andrew Moray defeated English troops in the Battle of Stirling Bridge during the First War of Scottish Independence.

In 1789, Alexander Hamilton was appointed the first secretary of the Treasury.

In 1814, an American fleet scored a decisive victory over the British in the Battle of Lake Champlain in the War of 1812.

In 1857, the Mountain Meadows Massacre took place in present-day southern Utah as a 120-member Arkansas immigrant party was slaughtered by Mormon militiamen aided by Paiute Indians.

In 1936, Boulder Dam (now Hoover Dam) began operation as President Franklin D. Roosevelt pressed a key in Washington to signal the startup of the dam’s first hydroelectric generator.

In 1941, groundbreaking took place for the Pentagon. In a speech that drew accusations of anti-Semitism, Charles A. Lindbergh told an America First rally in Des Moines, Iowa, that “the British, the Jewish, and the Roosevelt administration” were pushing the United States toward war.

In 1954, the Miss America pageant made its network TV debut on ABC; Miss California, Lee Meriwether, was crowned the winner.

In 2001, on America’s single-worst day of terrorism, nearly 3,000 people were killed as 19 Al Qaeda members hijacked four passenger jetliners, including two from Logan International Airport that targeted New York’s World Trade Center. One plane crashed into the Pentagon and the fourth into a field in Western Pennsylvania.

In 2006, in a prime-time address, President George W. Bush invoked the memory of the victims of the 9/11 attacks as he staunchly defended the war in Iraq, though he acknowledged that Saddam Hussein was not responsible for the attacks.

In 2012, a mob armed with guns and grenades launched a fiery nightlong attack on a US diplomatic outpost and a CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya, killing US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

In 2008, Presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama put aside politics as they visited ground zero together on the anniversary of 9/11 to honor its victims.

In 2017, Hurricane Irma weakened to a tropical storm and finally left Florida after a run up the entire 400-mile length of the state. An estimated 13 million people in Florida remained without power."

A most inauspicious day indeed!
