The notion, which I am quite happy to propagate, that vaccines do nothing to cure or prevent illnesses, and are utterly worthless except for dumbing people down and wrecking their immune systems, really gets the flock into a tizzy. The American indoctrination process includes a heavy dose of authority worship, and when it comes to your health and well-being, the man or woman in the white coat is God.
But when one does their own digging, and applies their own intelligence and common sense - if it hasn't been chemically-lobotomized out of you - one sees that things are not what they seem when it comes to "modern" medical "science".
For myself, the road to discovery regarding vaccines traveled via sodium fluoride. This is instrumental in how I view what comes out of the establishment, so indulge me a moment while I explain the correlation between fluoride and vaccines.
Water fluoridation is one of the most heinous crimes against humanity of all time, and it is being championed by the American government. When the government tells you fluoride is needed in water and in toothpaste for dental health, keep in mind that it was Stalin who first introduced sodium fluoride into the water in the gulags, and later Hitler in his death camps. It is irrefutable historic fact that this was done so prisoners would become placid and dumbed down, and lack the will to resist.
- Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s power to resist domination, by slowly poisoning and narcotizing a certain area of the brain, thus making him submissive to the will of those who wish to govern him. [A convenient light lobotomy]
The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children’s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty. - Charles Perkins
Sodium fluoride is also the main active toxin in rat poisons and pesticides. It is now known to cause lower IQ, leukemia, osteosarcoma, and sterilization. It damages the thyroid gland, causing cardiac disease, high cholesterol, depression and, in pregnant women, decreased intelligence in their children. It attacks the pineal gland, altering melatonin production effecting sexual maturation, calcium metabolism, parathyroid function, postmenopausal osteoporosis, cancer, and psychiatric disease. It is a compulsory medication, found in drinking water, toothpaste, vitamins, and liquid cold medications; Scientific American reported in January 2008 that it is literally impossible not to over-medicate yourself on it.
Sodium fluoride is a carcinogenic industrial waste product, mainly from aluminum, steel, cement, phosphate fertilizer, and nuclear weapons manufacturing. Rather than improve dental health, fluoride weakens and stains our teeth. It is a grotesque substance that no living being should ingest, and certainly should not be forced to ingest by having our water contaminated by it. If fluoride is good for us, why is there a warning on your toothpaste to call the poison control center if you swallow even a small amount of it? Nearly all of Western Europe has banned water fluoridation, and their toothpastes have half the level of fluoride American products do, yet their dental health is markedly superior to Americans.
It is from this frame of reference that I present to you the vaccine fraud. Vaccines today are a sacred (cash) cow, a modern medical "miracle" without which we'd all be crippled, dead, or worse. Anyone who suggests they might be the cause of autism, ADD, ADHD, Alzheimer's, and a plethora of auto-immune disorders is annihilated by the establishment.
At this point you may be trying to rationalize the whole thing, something along the lines of, just because they dump fluoride in our water doesn't mean the vaccines are bad. No, of course not. But if they'd dump sodium fluoride in our water, it shouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility that they've completely lied about the vaccines. And lie they have.
Vaccine ingredients contain what can reasonably be described as a Nazi experiment, including mercury, aluminum, ethylene glycol (anti-freeze), chemical detergents, formaldehyde, foreign recombinant RNA including aborted fetal retinal tissue and cancer cells from monkeys, and poly-sorbate 80, or preen 80, a known sterilant – all entering your body in an unnatural fashion (injection) for which your body has little ability to defend against. If this seems absurd to you, compare this list to any vaccine insert, if you can convince a pharmacist to actually let you look at one.
Particularly in children, who have weakened blood-brain barriers, these toxic substances, including violent neurotoxins (which, in the case of mercury, have recently been declared by establishment medicine, reported by establishment media, as beneficial to children with developing brains), wreak havoc on the brain, and often overheat the immune system causing violent autoimmune responses (such as vaccine induced encephalitis (“shaken baby syndrome”)) and immune disorders that make them pharma clients for life.
The whole concept of vaccination was developed by Edward Jenner, an 18th century English doctor who based his entire theory on an old wives' tale that people who came down with cowpox were somehow immune to smallpox. Testing this theory in May of 1796, he removed fluid from a woman's cowpox lesion and injected it into the arm of a healthy 8 year old boy. Jenner then later injected the boy with smallpox. When the boy did not get smallpox, Jenner concluded, "The cowpox protects the human constitution from the infection of smallpox." That's it. That's what the entire science is based on - this wholly unscientific test.
Common sense tells us that not everyone who ever came into contact with smallpox became symptomatic, else the overwhelming majority of humanity would've been afflicted. Jenner's finding was published in 6 languages and, again, is the basis for an entire industry of vaccine producing pharmaceutical companies who reap in billions off it.
- Is it not, therefore, rather strange, Mr. President, that vaccination should be reported as so utterly harmless in the distant Philippines, where we can not easily get at the records, when we know it is so deadly in the nearby England and America, where the accessible records show that it causes, frequently, more deaths than smallpox, as I have already proved? For example: the great English Commission on Vaccination found that deaths from vaccination were sometimes as high as seventy deaths per million vaccinated. This is twice as high as the mortality from smallpox in the United States, which for five years, from 1901 to 1905, including our last great epidemic period of 1901 and 1902, averaged only thirty-four deaths per million population! - Charles M Higgins
However, even a broken clock tells the right time twice a day, so could it be possible that Jenner stumbled onto a concept that, with further scientific research and technological tweaking, developed into a viable medical procedure? Of course. Is that the case? No. Some more history to put this into context.
Smallpox made its appearance in the midst of the collapse of Greek and Roman civilization, with their high standards of health, hygiene, and sanitation: public baths, municipal water supply, drainage, toilets, garbage disposal, spacious, well-aired, sun-drenched living quarters, and a simple, un-spoiled diet. These factors prevented smallpox from ravaging their populations at the same time it devastated Africa and Asia. How?
During the Dark Ages in Europe, sanitation, diet, and hygiene were frightfully inadequate. Noted hygienist and dietician Doctor Herbert Shelton describes the conditions:
- According to Montgomery’s English History, the streets of London and other cities were rarely more than twelve to fifteen feet wide were neither paved nor lighted. Pools of stagnant water accumulated everywhere, heaps of garbage abounded and were only removed when it began to obstruct the traffic. There was no sewage and dead dogs, cats, rubbish, rotten vegetable and fruit refuse, human and animal excreta, and slops from the kitchen were all thrown into the streets. Surrounded by high walls, cities could not expand and people were forced to live in a slum-like manner. Holes served as windows, with little or no ventilation, whole families slept in one room often in one bed, and hundreds of persons lived in one building crowded in from the sub-celler to the attic. They rarely ever washed, had no bath tubs, no underwear and wore the same clothes day and night. They lived in utmost poverty, slaved long hours, even the children worked, drank heavily of alcohol, ate like hogs of spoiled, unnatural food and suffered from malnutrition.
So we see two cultural contrasts where disease was non-existant in one and rampant in the other. Did vaccines exist in Greece and Rome? But without them, how were they spared the ravages of this disease? Certainly the Roman Empire, which controlled vast portions of Africa and Asia, was not quarantined from the rest of the world. There was one simple factor involved: standard of living.
Examination of almost all statistical data regarding diseases and vaccination show that the vaccine had little to no measurable effect on reducing illness, and in some cases actually contributed to an increase of deaths from the disease - in other words, people were killed by the very disease they were vaccinated against, and they contracted the disease from the vaccination. The most glaring example can be seen below, as documented by Dr. Raymond Obomsawin, president of the Circle of Nations Institute of Life Sciences and Sustainable Development:
We are told that among the greater miracles of science and in vaccination is Jonas Salk's polio vaccine. Yet over fifty years later, in August of this year, we find that the vaccine is only effective at infecting people with the very virus they are told the vaccine would protect them from. What, exactly, do people expect when they're given a live polio virus? Further, even if Salk's vaccine were effective in eradicating polio in the United States, a cancer-causing monkey virus, SV40, found in polio vaccines prior to 1963, is now known to have caused non-Hodkings lymphoma in millions of people. Why was this separate virus found in the vaccine? Well, that's an entirely separate, albeit entirely relevant subject.
What about measles, mumps, rubella, and all these other diseases we vaccinate our children against? I present the following charts documenting not only that vaccines did not eradicate disease, but have contributed to high infant mortality, mental disorders, SIDS, and shaken baby syndrome, among other conditions. Click each chart to enlarge and be sure to note the sources.
Examining these statistics, I state that it is obvious vaccines do not prevent disease on any measurable level. But if vaccines don't prevent disease, what effects are they having on our children?
- Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so. - Bertrand Russell, The Impact of Science on Society p50, 1953
Let's for a moment forget there are people out there who are "experts" and that you're supposedly not one of them, and apply our own common sense. Mercury is one of the most powerful neurotoxins known to man. It literally obliterates neurons. The label of thimerisol - the mercury-based "preservative" found in vaccines - has a skull and crossbones on it, and says it is "very toxic".
Our bodies have defense mechanisms for filtering out toxins that we ingest naturally - either through breathing, eating and drinking, or absorption through our pores. Some of them will seep into the bloodstream; some of it will be released through our urine or feces. The body has little to defend itself against toxins injected directly into the bloodstream, as this method of entry is completely unnatural.
These toxins - and thimerisol/mercury is not the only toxin contained in vaccines - are pumped directly into our soft tissue and blood stream, and there is nothing to stop them from ending up in our brain and other vital organs. It has a cumulative effect on these organs - in the case of neurological disorders, the brain - meaning it collects in the brain and continues to do damage for periods of time after it is injected.
How can anyone seriously say, with a straight face, that injecting a vicious and potent neurotoxin directly into the blood of children with developing brains will not seriously damage their nervous system? Just how stupid do they believe we are? Extremely, apparently. Particularly since a lobotomy effect is a primary purpose of vaccines in general and mercury in particular.
Despite all of the obvious implications mercury in vaccines have on our brains, particularly children's but also adults, the government continues to insist that it is safe. In fact they tell us it's beneficial to pregnant women and children with developing brains. If you believe that, you deserve to be lobotomized.
This is the true horror of vaccines: not only are they extraordinarily harmful to our minds and our immune systems, but they are entirely unnecessary. Ask yourself: how do you know vaccines are beneficial? Because your doctor tells you so? Well how does he/she know? Who told them? I submit to you that, as corporatism wraps its tentacles around every essential institution of our society, that, in the case of modern medicine, those who practice in it unwittingly serve the corporate interests which control it. Who owns and funds the medical societies and journals who define what's "cutting edge"? The curricula at most medical schools are written by pharmaceutical giants; your doctor is almost certainly nothing more than a low-level drug pusher for pharma kingpins.
It should never be far from your mind when considering a doctor's advice that it is the law that only an FDA-approved substance can cure or treat any disease. So it is therefore illegal for your doctor to, for instance, advise you to take Vitamin D3 to boost your immune system, which would make vaccines unnecessary. Why are we less apt to get sick in the summer? Is it because we don't come into contact with viruses? No. It's because the sun is more dominant than in winter months, our skin is more exposed to it as we bask in its warmth, and our bodies use sunlight to create Vitamin D3, which it further uses to create anti-microbial peptides which annihilate invasive viruses and bacteria. This is also why they obsess over exposure to sunlight. Sunlight = health = no profitability for the pharmaceutical industrial complex.
The entire medical industry is based on people's desperation to find a counterbalance for their grotesquely unhealthy lifestyles. They want to be able to eat McDonalds five times a week and take a pill or a shot to keep that non-food from devastating their bodies. It is the personification of sloth and gluttony. Your body is armed by 4 billion years of evolution against the worst nature has to offer. If you eat properly, drink enough water, get enough sleep, and avoid, as often as possible, exposure to harmful electromagnetic fields, industrial chemicals, detergents, and soaps, etc - or, in other words, everything that we've come to rely on that our ancestors, who almost never died of cancer, didn't have - there is hardly a need for "medicine" and certainly no need for vaccines, even if they did work, even if they didn't wreck your immune system and damage your brain.
- Let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food. - Hippocrates
Your body, and your children's health, are your responsibility alone. It is up to you not to proxy out your health to people who may not have the best intentions or the proper training, despite the fact they are so exalted and despite the hundreds of thousands of dollars and years in school they spent learning nothing of real use except to corporate interests.
This responsibility, of course, if you are so moved, also includes making sure everything you've just read isn't disinformation. You've got to do your own thinking, and rely on your own intelligence, to make the right decisions. The ultimate purpose of this essay is to put you on a path to discovery, as opposed to miring in blind faith. And if you do so and find my research and conclusions wanting, that is your prerogative. I think nothing less of you. Godspeed.

Asthma patients who rely on over-the-counter inhalers will need to switch to prescription-only alternatives as part of the federal government's latest attempt to protect the Earth's atmosphere.
The Food and Drug Administration said Thursday patients who use the epinephrine inhalers to treat mild asthma will need to switch by Dec. 31 to other types that do not contain chlorofluorocarbons, an aerosol substance once found in a variety of spray products.

1. The aggregate of people living together in a more or less ordered community.
This won't be like the Great Depression, when Americans still had some sense of communal responsibility, not to mention a general responsibility and willingness to be at least somewhat self-sufficient. Today's "society" lacks all these things. And you're seeing the result.
Spike In Violent Crime In Denver
- CBS News Denver -
Murders in Denver are up 138.5 percent for the first eight months of this year, armed assaults have risen 9.1 percent compared to the same time last year and simple assaults have risen 6.7 percent in the first eight months of 2011, according to the Denver Police Department’s statistics for 2011.
“So yeah, we believe it’s a problem and we’re working on it but it’s nothing to alarm people and make them believe they live in an unsafe city,” said Denver Police spokesperson Lt. Matt Murray.
Subway Crime Up Nearly 17 Percent: NYPD
- NBC News New York -
A recent string of subway attacks in New York City, including the robbery and attempted rape of a woman on the F train Wednesday, are part of a citywide crime spike underground, according to officials.
Crime in the subways is up 16.6 percent over the same period last year, according to the NYPD.
Much of the rise in crime is being attributed to grand larcenies, but women who travel on the trains late at night or early in the morning say they are also concerned bout attacks.
"It's definitely less safe," said Emmaly Salazar, who rides the subway from her Brooklyn home late at night to get to work. "The F train is empty and I don't see any police around here."
I know it all began before Lehman, that Lehman and the continued, compounding crisis which will - will - end in collapse began at least a century ago with the planned collapse of the banking system which was used as a segue to the Federal Reserve, but Lehman is what scared me into realizing the whole house of cards that I thought was stability and prosperity in America, a future with children and college and grandbabies and retirement was about to crash under its own weight. How's that for a run-on sentence?
But what frightened me the most, what really put the zap in me, was that Lehman was nothing compared to what's about to happen. Especially considering the government and the Fed's reaction to the crisis, which now I realize was as predictable as the tides, and many people - Ron Paul, Peter Schiff, et al - did predict it, not only made recovery impossible, but guaranteed - guaranteed - the worst case scenario. In fact, a replay of the Great Depression would be the best case scenio, if you can actually fathom that. Prepare yourselves, with all of your energy and resources and intelligence. We're stand on the precipice, one foot off the cliff.
Key indicators of credit stress have reached the danger levels seen before the Lehman Brothers failure three years ago, with Markit's iTraxx Crossover index – or "fear gauge" – of corporate bonds surging 56 basis points to 857 on Thursday.
Societe Generale led a further rout of bank shares, crashing 9pc in Paris on concern that it might need recapitalisation to cope with losses on Italian and Spanish debt.
The yield spread between Italian 10-year bonds and Bunds reached a fresh record of 408 basis points before the European Central Bank (ECB) intervened in late trading. It is near the level at which LCH.Clearnet raises margin requirements, the trigger that forced Greece, Portugal and Ireland to request bail-outs.
Global investors appear shaken by the refusal of the US Federal Reserve to come to the rescue yet again with quantitative easing (QE3) even though it was never likely the bank would launch fresh stimulus with core inflation running near 2pc or in the face of protests from Capitol Hill.
Isn't it funny how "investors" are shaken by the Fed's refusal to print money to buy up the banks' toxic assets? These people have no real clue about economics. It's all short term to them. If they had any economic sanity in them at all, the thought of QE3 would send them into a hysterical panic.
If you live in major population centers, which includes but is not limited to practically all lands east of the Mississippi River, if you value your lives, if you wish to continue living, if you don't want to be torn to shreds by hordes of barbarians, just get out. Set a six month timetable from right now and start putting the plan in action. Because you do not want to be around when the collapse really takes hold.

"The smart rich know they can only build the gate so high. And, and, sooner or later history proves that people when they've had enough aren’t going to take it anymore. And much better to deal with it nonviolently now, through the political system, than what could possibly happen in the future, which nobody wants to see," Michael Moore said on Current TV's "Countdown" program.
Moore was alluding to riots, which he was discussing with "Countdown" host Keith Olbermann prior to his comment to deal with things nonviolently now.

Roughly a year and a half after the BP oil disaster left the Gulf of Mexico saturated with crude oil and toxic Corexit chemicals, new evidence has surfaced showing what appears to be more crude oil spewing into the ocean. Raw Story explains that Dr. Bonny Schumaker, founder of OnWingsOfCare.org, a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting and preserving wildlife and the environment, recently spotted a ten-mile-long oil slick near the BP Macondo oil well that was supposedly capped shut.
Dr. Schumaker's video of the oil slick, which was uploaded to YouTube on August 30, 2011, can be viewed here:

The prolonged economic slump we've been in since before the financial crisis really is different than recent recession experiences, especially when it comes to those who now live in poverty.
The official U.S. poverty rate in 2007 was 12.5 percent. Following the calamities of 2008 it climbed upward and kept climbing. By 2009, the rate was 14.3 percent. In 2010 it went to 15.1 percent, according to U.S. Census data reviewed by Pro Publica.
There has not been so large a portion of Americans in poverty since 1993. But this time the growth in poverty is different, hitting whites and suburbia harder than it did during the early 1990s slump. African Americans, by contrast, appear to be doing better.
The poverty rate for whites was 13 percent in 2010. That compares to 12.2 percent in 1993, according to the Census Bureau.

- The Economic Collapse -
America is getting poorer. The U.S. government has just released a bunch of new statistics about poverty in America, and once again this year the news is not good. According to a special report from the U.S. Census Bureau, 46.2 million Americans are now living in poverty. The number of those living in poverty in America has grown by 2.6 million in just the last 12 months, and that is the largest increase that we have ever seen since the U.S. government began calculating poverty figures back in 1959. Not only that, median household income has also fallen once again. In case you are keeping track, that makes three years in a row. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, median household income in the United States dropped 2.3% in 2010 after accounting for inflation. Overall, median household income in the United States has declined by a total of 6.8% once you account for inflation since December 2007. So should we be excited that our incomes are going down and that a record number of Americans slipped into poverty last year? Should we be thrilled that the economic pie is shrinking and that our debt levels are exploding? All of those that claimed that the U.S. economy was recovering and that everything was going to be just fine have some explaining to do.
- Associated Press -
A U.S. woman said Tuesday that she endured nearly four hours in police custody that included being forced off an airplane in handcuffs, strip-searched and interrogated at Detroit's airport on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks — all, she believes, because of her Middle Eastern appearance.
Shoshana Hebshi, 35, told The Associated Press she was one of three people removed from a Denver-to-Detroit Frontier Airlines flight after landing Sunday afternoon. Authorities say fighter jets escorted the plane after its crew reported that two people were spending a long time in a bathroom — the two men sitting next to Hebshi in the 12th row.
Hebshi said she didn't notice how many times the men went to the bathroom. "I wasn't keeping track," she said.
"I really wasn't paying attention," said Hebshi, a freelance writer, editor and stay-at-home mother of twin six-year-old boys who lives in a suburb of Toledo, Ohio. "I was minding my own business — sleeping, reading, playing on my phone."

The United States faced increasing pressure on Tuesday as the Palestinian quest for statehood gained support from Turkey and other countries, even as the Obama administration sought an 11th-hour compromise that would avoid a confrontation at the United Nations next week.
With only days to go before world leaders gather in New York, the maneuvering became an exercise in brinkmanship as the administration wrestles with roiling tensions in the region, including a sharp deterioration of relations between three of its closest allies in the region: Egypt, Israel and Turkey.

In 2010 the number of poor rose for a third straight year, hitting a record 46 million, or, 15.1% or one in six Americans. Twenty two percent of children lived in poverty in 2010. The official poverty rate is $22,314 for a family of four. The median — or midpoint — household income was $49,445, down 2.3 percent from 2009. This deterioration is certain to be further reflected in 2011. “Families are struggling to put food on the table, and they don’t have the purchasing power to help the economy recover,” said Isabel Sawhill, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington.
It should always be noted that government statistics are almost always skewed to reflect more positively on the economy - for instance, the official unemployment rate is nearly one-third the actual unemployment rate, which is well over 20%. Therefore we can reasonably assume the actual number of impoverished in America is a great deal higher. This is speculative, however.
It is time for those of us willing to face reality to understand that the decline is irreversible. We cannot, therefore, sit on our hands waiting for the "good" times to return. They will not. It has become increasingly apparent that untold suffering awaits those who hide their heads in the sand and hold to the beliefs that only paranoid, delusions kooks prepare for hard times. We must create a new paradigm for ourselves, or we will die. The preppers shall inherit the Earth.

9-11 Flights of Fancy Lead to Moments of Fear
ABC News -
Fighter planes were scrambled, bomb squads were called, FBI command centers went on alert and police teams raced to airports today, but in the end two separate airline incidents were caused by apparently innocent bathroom breaks and a little "making out," federal officials said.
In the first incident, a pair of fighter jets were scrambled to escort an American Airlines jet into New York's JFK airport after the pilot became spooked by passengers' frequent trips to and from the restroom.
The precaution turned out to be unnecessary as federal air marshals aboard flight 34 from Los Angeles to JFK were able to resolve the situation when the passengers complied with their instructions, police officials said. The pilot then radioed that the situation was under control and the plane landed safely. Three male passengers were questioned upon arrival, but no charges were filed against them, authorities said.
The incident occurred around the same time that a second pair of fighter jets hit the skies to monitor another plane – this one a Frontier Airlines flight from Denver to Detroit – after two passengers aboard that plane were "allegedly behaving suspiciously," according to the FBI spokesperson in Denver, Dave Joly. The plane was met in the Detroit airport by law enforcement and taken to a remote area for a security screening, but no explosives were found, Joly said.
Instead, the "suspicious behavior" was two people "making out" in the bathroom mid-flight, law enforcement sources told ABC News. Three people were taken into custody for questioning, Frontier Airlines said in a statement, but no arrests have been made in that case either.
The incidents come as the nation observes the tenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks in which four passenger planes were hijacked. Nearly 3,000 Americans perished in that attack.
Edit: I feel like I may actually have completed my entire narrative on the events of the day. It is likely some other key piece of evidence will be reminded to me, and I will revise yet again. But for all intents and purposes, this is it. I will at a later date provide a resource page for this chapter and the rest of my book, so that critics and skeptics might look into the validity of these claims. If you find this useful as a tool to educated the uninformed and the willfully ignorant, please spread this to anyone willing to listen...
America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is, defense spending) and the human sacrifice (casualties, even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.
Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multi-cultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat. – Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard, September 1998
At the time of this writing, which is near the time I'll finish this treatise and send it out into the universe, the ten year anniversary of the 9-11 attacks is less than a week away. Having read the last chapter, you can easily imagine where this is going: The 9-11 attacks were a false flag black op perpetrated by criminal elements of the United States and likely the Israeli governments.
Let us first delve into the context of my use of the word “government” in this case. People, in their groupthink/ego identities, believe that “government” and “country” are one and the same. They are not. Your country is the society, the culture, the geography, the people; your government is a select group of elites with enormous power and therefore, if you believe in Lord Acton's maxim, inherently and inescapably corrupt. Associating government with country brings about an aggressive, often violent defensive reaction, because your patriotism is who you are at your core, and to say that your country – your government – could kill 3,000 of its “own” people is a monstrous blasphemy.
For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it. – David Rockefeller, Memoirs, 2002
And yet even among the criminal elements of our government responsible for this crime – and keep in mind this was criminal elements, not the entire government top to bottom – these criminals are not Americans the way you might think of them as Americans. They may have been born in a geographical area with imaginary borders commonly referred to as The United States of America, but they do not consider themselves Americans. Their explicit goal is to destroy America, and all other sovereign nations, to bring about a global government under the control of the banking elite. You are not their brethren; they do not look at you any differently than they do the people from Russia, China, India, Africa, the Middle East, etc. You are pawns on the grand chessboard, and they have been quarantined from the vile masses for so long that they feel no empathy, no compassion, no sense of connection to any of you. Their hearts are black, and they have no soul.
Examine the pictures of slaughtered Afghan children, or the birth deformities caused by our depleted uranium contamination of Iraq for proof of this. They won't show these on the news, because if they did, the humanity, the empathy, these black-hearted monsters have tried to stamp out of you might be awoken. It is essential for you to continue to believe these wars are as sanitary as possible, and that the enemy is seen as inhuman as possible, so that no matter what happens you really don't mind it very much. I digress.
The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. - J. Edgar Hoover
As we begin to examine the evidence that 9-11 was a staged, self-inflicted wound, I beckon you back to the preface and humbly ask you keep in mind that, while there are certain aspects of the conspiracy we can be sure about, I do not, nor is it likely that I or anyone else not involved in the highest levels of the conspiracy will ever know exactly what happened on that Tuesday morning. What can be almost fully deduced is what did not happen, particularly what could not have happened within the framework of the official narrative, which is one of the most grotesque lies ever perpetrated on mankind. Once what could not have happened, as well as the fact that a cover-up took place, is established, the question then becomes, who had the motive to lie about it, and qui bono – who benefited?
This doesn't involve theories. You can take the facts and do with them as you please, but this isn't the paranoid delusions of whackjobs who hate their government. If anyone is mentally deranged, it's the people who, having examined all the facts with an open mind, while perhaps not being sold on the fact that 19 Islamic radicals with box cutters could not possibly carried out the attack, see nothing amiss about the way the official narrative formed and was forced down our throats, the way evidence and events that contradict the official narrative were deliberately swept under the rug; the way we willfully filtered them out of our minds. If you consider the two World Wars and Vietnam alone (there were other wars based on false pretenses as well), their lies have collectively killed upwards of 600,000 Americans alone. Take this into consideration if you think “our” government wouldn't murder 3,000 of its “own people”.
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor. – A Project for a New American Century, Rebuilding America's Defenses, page 63, September 2000
The Three Towers?
Sky scrapers are not built to collapse. For one, they are always built in high population areas, designed to hold thousands of people, and surrounded by many other buildings that would be damaged were they to collapse. Before we could be confident in building such structures, we had to know with a degree of certainty that they wouldn't just fall to pieces one day. Indeed, from the bottom to the top, each floor must be designed to support the enormous weight of all floors above it against the force of gravity. Considering the massive amount of weight so much steel, concrete, office furniture and people exert, in 110-story buildings, the strength of the building's structure must be significant.
The official conspiracy theory revolves around the enormous damage done by the two jumbo jets – the combined catastrophe of the planes slamming into the buildings at 500mph and 9,000 pounds of jet fuel exploding and burning. But as catastrophic as these compounding events may seem, the buildings were actually built to withstand them.
By some strange coincidence, less than nine months before the attack and 30 years after the buildings were constructed, Frank A. Demartini, on-site construction manager for the World Trade Center, gave an interview in which he was asked how well the towers could withstand an impact from a jumbo jet. He answered,
The building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door -- this intense grid -- and the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting.
Demartini is believed to have died in the attacks, as he remained in the building to assist with the evacuation, surely content with the knowledge that an airline impact could not cause the building to collapse.
Further, it is widely assumed that the jet fuel burned at enormous temperatures for what we believe was an extended period of time, causing either melting or weakening of the steel columns holding the building up. But even if jet fuel could melt steel – it can't – we know the jet fuel had already burned off – that massive explosion upon Flight 75 (the second plane) slamming into the South Tower. Jet fuel is essentially kerosene, and anyone who's had a kerosene heater in their home knows it does not burn particularly hot. Anyone with a wood burning stove knows that you can burn it for days or even weeks on end without it melting.
Thus you might consider it miraculous that firefighters had actually reached the crash zone of the South tower before it collapsed – evidence, in the form of a tape recording of firefighters reporting they had reached the 78th floor sky lobby, which was where the plane impacted, has been deliberately withheld by the Department of Justice and was only obtained after a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Close-up photos were taken of the impact site which featured human beings, alive and well, waving for help. Moreover, for a considerable amount of time before the towers collapsed, thick, black smoke vomited from the towers, indicating not a raging inferno, but a dying, oxygen-starved fire.
Despite claims to the contrary by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), there is no real evidence that any of the core columns had at any point reached temperatures of even 428°F. How can there be? Every cubic centimeter of the collapsed buildings was hastily disposed of before any kind of investigation of physical evidence was conducted. All of NIST's investigations of the towers must, therefore, be based upon conjecture alone. More on this in a moment. Even if the columns were heated to the extreme temperatures NIST, without evidence, claims they were, steel has incredible thermal conductivity, and, given the interconnectedness of the Towers' steel framed structure, the heat would've been drawn away from the impact zone and distributed it throughout the entire building. Considering the relatively weak intensity of the heat present, there is no reason to believe the steel was weakened at all. Indeed, to “prove” their theory, NIST conducted heat transfer tests on isolated steel elements. The entire collapse theory is based on blatantly bad and faulty science, but since you're not a scientist, much less a physicist, they expect you to swallow their story without question. And we do.
Finally, most assume that the plane's impact must have caused some kind of structural damage to the building, but, added to Demartini's testimony above, NIST concluded that the most significant effect the planes' impact had on the towers was the dislodging of fire-proofing material from the steel columns (steel catches fire?). Consider this in tandem with the lack of evidence fires exceeded 428°F and you start to see the official conspiracy theory is far more delusional than what is presented here.
We can wax philosophical about the possibility that the impacts and fire did in fact cause the buildings to collapse, but all measures of common sense, not to mention the laws of physics, must be abandoned when explaining the manner in which they collapsed once the collapse initiated.
According to Newton's law of gravity, a billiard ball dropped from the top of one of the towers would hit the ground in 9.2 seconds. According to NIST, the 9-11 Commission Report and corroborated by seismic measurements of the collapse, the South and North Towers collapsed in 11 and 9 seconds, respectively.
Again, take a moment to imagine the physics of a skyscraper: hundreds of thousands of tons of steel and concrete structured to push upwards, supporting the weight of everything above it, resisting the pull of gravity. And yet the top of the collapse reached the ground as if nothing below it were present to slow its rate of descent – it was as if it were a free-fall collapse, even though both buildings collapsed, in exactly the same fashion, directly into the path of greatest resistance.
Even if a global collapse occurred in a natural, physically possible manner, even at one floor per second it would taken 90 seconds to collapse. A ten second collapse of 110 story buildings is only possible if there were explosives moving the mass of concrete and steel below the collapse out of the way, allowing the cascading destruction to move downwards at free-fall speed.
Careful examination of either tower collapsing shows explosive squibs ejecting from the building just below the collapse point and as many as 20 floors below the collapse. Massive blocks of concrete and steel girders weighing several hundred thousand pounds are shown being explosively ejected outwards and were found as far as two football fields away, some embedded into nearby buildings. The horizontal speed of some of these girders has been clocked at 70 miles per hour. What could hurl such gigantic masses of steel and concrete at such speeds with such force? Certainly not gravity, which as common sense, not to mention physical law, tells us would pull matter toward the center of the Earth.
And finally, after the collapse, the core columns can be seen cut, as if with a welding torch, at about a 45 degree angle. Standard demolitions employ the same method – angled inward to push the building in on itself; molten steel can be seen around the edges of the cut. This cannot have been a naturally occurring phenomenon.
Nor could the molten metal found in the basement areas of the towers, as well as building 7 (building what?), which was found for up to five weeks after the collapse. Fire fighters described seeing the molten metal as if they were in a foundry, or like watching lava flow from a volcano. This is significant on several levels. First, we know that jet fuel doesn't burn hot enough to melt steel – steel melts at over 2000°; satellite thermal imaging recorded temperatures upwards of 2600° at least five days after the collapse. Finally, fires are known to have burned underground for months after the attacks, not being brought to an end until late December 2001. This despite an unimaginable amount of water being showered upon them, from the firefighters themselves and from several subsequent severe thunderstorms.
You couldn't even begin to imagine how much water was pumped in there. It was like you were creating a giant lake. – Tom Manley, Uniformed Firefighters Association, NYC's largest fire department union
There could have been no jet fuel in the WTC7 collapse, and yet molten steel and incredibly hot temperatures were observed there as well. The only acceptable explanation for this has been offered by Brigham Young physicist Steven Jones, who presented compelling evidence of the existence of explosive nano thermite in the rubble of the World Trade Center. Thermite itself burns so hot it will cut through steel like a hot knife through butter. Thermate contains an additive which not only makes it burn incredibly hot, but makes it explosive as well.
If the debris field were allowed to be examined, as any other crime scene would have, evidence of explosives inside the building – both from the thermate residue found in the rubble and the wreckage exhibiting evidence of having been damaged by explosive – may have been discovered. We could also tell how much damage the planes caused at the point of impact, and how much the steel melted or warped to cause a collapse, per the official conspiracy theory.
Thus, the wreckage was speedily and secretly carted away, with little regard to the remains of the victims it contained, to a landfill in Staten Island, where it was subsequently processed and sold to China, made into souvenir keepsakes, and implemented into the construction of a Navy warship. Dump trucks carrying the wreckage were fitted with GPS devices, and one driver who took too long on his lunch break was fired on the spot. If this had occurred at any place and time other than the World Trade Center (and the Pentagon) on 9-11, we would, without hesitation, call it by its appropriate name: a cover-up.
I’m on the basement—the basement has six levels of basement; B1 to B6. On the B1 level were all of the support companies that dealt with the World Trade Center … I was talking to a supervisor at 8:46 am and all of a sudden we hear a very loud “BOOM!” – an explosion so hard that it pushed us upwards! … [I]t came from the basement between the B2 level, and the B3 level.
At that moment everyone started screaming—the explosion was so hard that the walls cracked—the ceiling fell on top of us. The sprinkler system got activated. When I was about to say out loud “it was the generator” we hear “BOOM!” – the impact of the plane on the top of the building.
Two different events. Two different times.
Now when this happened … screams everywhere … a person comes running into the office and starts yelling “explosion, explosion, explosion!” His hands were extended and his skin was pulled from under his armpit... all the way to the top of his fingerprints… and it was hanging on both hands. I didn’t know what it was. I thought it was a piece of clothing. And then I realized it was his skin and I said, “What happened? What happened?” …and when I looked at his face, I could see that he was missing pieces of his face. – William Rodriguez, janitor, North Tower
Liz, this was a terrorist attack. I can hear explosions below me. – Edmund McNally, 97th floor, South Tower
Shortly after 9 o'clock … Chief Albert Turi (Chief of Safety for the New York Fire Department) … received word of the possibility of a secondary device, that is another bomb going off. He tried to get his men out as quickly as he could, but he said there was another explosion which took place, and then an hour after the first hit – the first crash that took place – he said there was another explosion that took place in one of the towers here, so obviously according to his theory he thinks that there were actually devices that were planted in the building. – Pat Dawson, NBC News, September 11, 2001
We first assembled on West Street, where we saw someone burnt beyond recognition. We were like “What is going on here?” … [The lobby of the North Tower] looked like a bomb went off, and we started making our way up the stairs to rescue as many people as we could. … The elevators just blew right out. We couldn’t believe it. The plane hits 80 floors up but the elevators explode at least five minutes later? It was unreal. – John Schroeder, FDNY Engine Company 10
"Tommy Hetzel was with me and everybody else also gets out of the elevator when it stops on the 24th floor. There was a huge amount of smoke. Tommy and I had to go back down the elevator for tools and no sooner did the elevators close behind us, we heard this huge explosion that sounded like a bomb. It was such a loud noise, it knocked off the lights and stalled the elevator.
Luckily, we weren't caught between floors and were able to pry open the doors. People were going crazy, yelling and screaming. And all the time, I am crawling low and making my way in the dark with a flashlight to the staircase and thinking Tommy is right behind me. … I somehow got into the stairwell and there were more people there. When I began to try and direct down, another huge explosion like the first one hits. This one hits about two minutes later, although it's hard to tell, but I'm thinking, “Oh. My God, these bastards put bombs in here like they did in 1993!” – Lou Cacchioli, FDNY Engine Company 47, September 11, 2001
There was another big, big explosion. In the other tower, flames coming out and this billowing grey smoke. People still not panicking, people not quite understanding what was going on. Then somebody said that they saw an airliner go into one of those towers. Then, I don't know how later than that, we had that big explosion from much, much lower. I don't know what on earth caused that. – Stephen Evans, BBC North American Business correspondent, September 11, 2001
I guess about three minutes later you just heard explosions coming from building two, the south tower. It seemed like it took forever, but there were about ten explosions. – Craig Carlsen, FDNY Ladder 8
At 10:30 I tried to leave the building, but as I got outside I heard a second explosion, and another rumble, and more smoke, and more dust. I ran inside the building, the chandeliers shook, and again, black smoke filled the air. Within another five minutes we were covered again with more silt, and more dust. And then a fire marshal came in and said we had to leave, because if there was a third explosion this building might not last. – Ann Thomson, MSNBC, September 11, 2001
… that would put us a block and a half away from the site of where the explosion was. That area has just been evacuated because police have found what they describe as a suspicious device and they fear that it might be something that could lead to another explosion. Obviously there's a real sense of caution here on the part of police. I spoke with some police officials moments ago, Chris, and they told me they have reason to believe that one of the explosions at the World Trade Center aside from the ones that may have been caused by the impact of the plane with the building, may have been caused by a van that was parked in the building that may have had some type of explosive device in it, so their fear is that there may have been explosive devices planted either in the building, or in the adjacent area and that's why they are being so cautious – Rick Sanchez, MSNBC, September 11, 2001
I believe, from what I understand the fireman said, that the street collapsed on the outside of the building and when the street collapsed, there was an explosion which threw me. And it must've threw me across the room and I ended up going unconscious. – Sam Esposito, CBS Channel 2 News NY
As my officer and I were looking at the south tower, it just gave. It actually gave at a lower floor, not the floor where the plane hit, because we originally had thought there was like an internal detonation explosives because it went in succession, boom, boom, boom, boom, and then the tower came down. – Edward Cachia, FDNY Engine Company 53
Somewhere around the middle of the World Trade Center there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode. The popping sound, and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building.
I went inside and I told everybody that the other building or there was an explosion occurring up there and I said I think we have another major explosion.
So here these explosions are getting bigger and louder and bigger and louder and I told everybody if this building totally explodes, still unaware that the other building had collapsed, I'm going in the water. – Karin Deshore, Fire Captain, FDNY Battalion 6
I don't know how valid this is with everything that was going on at that particular point in time, but for some reason I thought that when I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before No. 2 came down, that I saw low-level flashes. In my conversation with Lieutenant Evangelista, never mentioning this to him, he questioned me and asked me if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him because I thought -- at that time I didn't know what it was. I mean, it could have been as a result of the building collapsing, things exploding, but I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down.
You know like when they demolish a building, how when they blow up a building, when it falls down? That's what I thought I saw. And I didn't broach the topic to him, but he asked me. He said I don't know if I'm crazy, but I just wanted to ask you because you were standing right next to me. He said did you see anything by the building? And I said what do you mean by see anything? He said did you see any flashes? I said, yes, well, I thought it was just me. He said no, I saw them, too. – Stephen Gregory, Commissioner, Bureau of Communications
The flashlight led us into Borders bookstore, up an escalator and out to Church Street. There were explosions going off everywhere. I was convinced that there were bombs planted all over the place and someone was sitting at a control panel pushing detonator buttons. I was afraid to go down Church Street toward Broadway, but I had to do it. I ended up on Vesey Street. There was another explosion. And another. I didn't know where to run. – Theresa Veliz, 47th Floor, North Tower
As we were getting our gear on and making our way to the stairway, there was a heavy duty explosion. – interview with unknown fireman, September 11, 2001
We were trying to get some of the people out, but then there was secondary explosions and then subsequent collapses. – interview with unknown fireman, September 11, 2001
Battalion 3 to dispatch, we've just had another explosion.
Battalion 3 to dispatch, we've had additional explosion.
Dispatcher: Received battalion command. Additional explosion. – Jersey City Battalion 3
Fireman 1: We made it at least 2 blocks.
Fireman 2: 2 blocks.
Fireman 1: and we started runnin'
Fireman 2: pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-pop-pop
Fireman 1: Floor by floor it started poppin' out ..
Fireman 2: It was as if as if they had detonated, det …
Fireman 1: yea detonated yea
Fireman 2: as if they had planned to take down a building, boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom-boom …
Fireman 1: All the way down, I was watchin it, and runnin'
And then all of a sudden it started like … it sounded like gunfire … you know, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, and then all of a sudden three big explosions. – Interview with unknown injured witness, September 11, 2001
And on and on it goes; eye witness after eye witness testifying to the presence of bombs in the buildings, bombs in the basement, bombs collapsing the street around the towers. And in the final report for the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (more commonly known as the 9-11 Commission), what is their conclusion about what caused these explosions?
They never mention them in the first place.
Common sense demands that, as an aspect of the terrorist attacks which wounded and likely killed many people, these explosions would receive the same scrutiny as any other aspect of the attack, like how 19 men armed with box cutters defeated a trillion dollar mega-defense system that kept the Soviet Union at bay for 50 years. But not a mention was made about it. Why?
Perhaps because it was simply a can of worms they could not open. If they admit there were bombs in the buildings, and secondary explosions going off, witnessed and documented by countless people, then the next obvious train of inquiry becomes, how did the bombs get in the building? The American people would be equally as skeptical at the assertion that 19 al Qaeda clowns not only infiltrated four commercial aircraft and flew them into buildings but, in addition, managed to covertly wire the towers with massive bombs, as they would at the assertion that the bombs were planted by the American government. Otherwise the government would be forced to postulate a much wider, more involved al Qaeda conspiracy, involving a much greater number of people, which, one would think, would not be a problem except for one small item: such a conspiracy simply did not exist.
And so faced with this inconvenient circumstance, they simply threw the whole story down the memory hole, and even though these countless testimonies are still on the web, from pedestrians to EMTs to firemen to police to journalists, the media, and thus the collective American mind, consciously or unconsciously swept it under the rug. These events officially do not exist; they never happened. And anyone who brings them up is laughed at. It is one of the most poignant examples of media-induced amnesia you'll ever find.
How could they let this happen? They knew this building was a target. Over the past few weeks we'd been evacuated a number of times, which is unusual. I think they had an inkling something was going on. – Ben Fountain, financial analyst, 47th floor South Tower
Surely the question most on our minds when considering such astounding accusations is, how could they have pulled all this off? How could they have rigged three (three?) skyscrapers for demolition without any of the many thousands of people working there knowing about it? How could such an operation be kept secret?
Meet Marvin Bush, the youngest brother of then-President George W. Bush. Marvin was a principal in a company called Securacom, which provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. The company was backed by KuwAm, a Kuwaiti-American investment firm on whose board Marvin Bush also served.
According to its present CEO, Barry McDaniel, the company had an ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center “up to the day the buildings fell down.” The company lists as government clients “the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S Air force, and the Department of Justice,” in projects that “often require state-of-the-art security solutions for classified or high-risk government sites.”
New York Newsday reported that a heightened security alert was lifted five days before the attack. Daria Coard, a guard at Tower One, said the security detail had been working 12-hour shifts for the past two weeks because of numerous phone threats. But on September 6, bomb-sniffing dogs were abruptly removed.
On the weekend before September 11, there was a 'power down' condition in the South Tower, leaving the building without electrical supply for approximately 36 hours from the 50th floor up. According to Scott Forbes of Fiduciary Trust, 97th floor South Tower, “Of course without power there were no security cameras, no security locks on doors and many, many 'engineers' coming in and out of the tower.”
[A] few minutes later we heard the radio announcer say that a second plane was heading straight for 2 WTC. A few seconds later our building once again swayed back and forth as the as result of the second plane crashing into 2 WTC. I hear now that it was 18 minutes between crashes. In those 18 minutes we heard no sirens, only the ones in the building when there's a fire, there was not one announcement from authorities at the WTC alerting us that there was an emergency situation and that we should evacuate, nothing. If we hadn't turned the radio on, we would not have known what the hell had happened. I was in such a rage. – Sabrina (last name withheld), 89th floor North Tower
Immediately after the North Tower was struck by Flight 11, the first plane to strike the WTC, towers 6 and 7 were evacuated. However, those in the North Tower were strongly advised to remain at their desks. Dan Baumbach, a software engineer from Merrick in the North Tower, was stunned to hear officials telling those trying to evacuate to return to their offices. “The reason we got out was because we didn't listen,” he said.
All of a sudden you heard, “Shhh!” Everyone was quiet. That's when they made that announcement: “Building 1 is in a state of emergency. Building 2 is secure. You're fine, you can return to your workstations.” – Nancy Cassidy, 80th floor, South Tower
An announcement came over the speaker system that we were not in imminent danger and that we should return to our offices. – Tiffany Keeling, 61st floor, South Tower
As soon as we reached the concourse level, the security guard stopped us and said, “Where are you going?” (the North Tower is on fire) “Oh, that was just an accident. Two World Trade is secured. Go back to your office.” – Stanley Praimnath, 82nd floor, South Tower
It can reasonably be dismissed that workers were told to remain in their offices after the North Tower was struck. After all, we know that the buildings were designed to withstand a jumbo jet impact. And, at the time, no one knew exactly what had hit the tower – early reports described a small plane – or thought that it might be part of a terrorist attack still in progress.
But as the above survivors testify to, even after the second plane had struck the towers, and it had become apparent that this was a purposeful attack, not a tragic accident, workers were still told to remain in their buildings. This after just eight years prior al Qaeda terrorists (with the help of the FBI) detonated a massive bomb in the North Tower with the intent of causing it to topple over into the South Tower, killing seven people and injuring over a thousand. During this attack there was no hesitation to evacuate the survivors.
I went down to the scene and we set up headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there with the Police Commissioner, the Fire Commissioner, the Head of Emergency Management, and we were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before we could actually get out of the building, so we were trapped in the building for 10, 15 minutes, and finally found an exit and got out, walked north, and took a lot of people with us. – Rudolph Giuliani, interview with Peter Jennings, September 11, 2001 (Giuliani later denied making this comment)
Why were survivors encouraged to stay in their offices during an apparent terrorist attack? How many would've survived if they hadn't been told to stay? The greater the death toll, the more horrifying the carnage, the greater the collective fury of the American people could be harnessed to support the underlying objective of the event, which, ten years on, is apparent. Nobody has benefited more from the attacks than the United States government, with its vicious and unceasing assault on our liberties and dignity (been to an airport lately?); the banksters who not only loaned, at interest, our government the trillions necessary to carry out our “vengeance”, but also have seen record profits from drug money laundered through their banks after the opium trade was restarted following our invasion of Afghanistan, which I'll delve more into in a moment; and finally, Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon, General Electric, Halliburton and its subsidiaries, etc – the military industrial complex – and all who've profited from this inhuman war racketeering scheme.
On September, 2001 three large office buildings – 110, 110, and 47 floors – burned for 56 minutes, 85 minutes, and 6 hours, respectively. In the history of steel-framed sky scrapers, they are the only ones to have collapsed from fire. Ever. Before or after 9-11. Are there examples to compare these to?
In May 1988 a fire at the 62-story Interstate Bank Building in Los Angeles destroyed four floors and damaged a fifth floor. The fire burned for four hours, but did not collapse. In February 1991 a fire destroyed eight floors of the 38-story One Meridian Plaza building in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The fire burned for 18 hours, but the building did not collapse. In October 2004 in Caracas, Venezuela, a fire in a 56-story office tower burned for more than 17 hours and spread over 26 floors. It did not collapse. In February 2005 the 32-story Windsor Building in Madrid, Spain caught fire and burned for two days. The building was completely engulfed in flames, yet it did not collapse.
Building 7, or World Trade Center 7, contained several government offices, including the IRS, CIA, Department of Defense, Security and Exchange Commission (SEC), and Secret Service, among others. It was not struck by a plane, but was only moderately damaged, supposedly due to the collapse of the towers. It had small, sporadic fires randomly dispersed on only a few floors.
Yet the building collapsed, again, at the rate of free fall, again, into its own footprint, in a perfectly neat and symmetrical fashion, causing minimal damage to the adjacent buildings. In order for this to occur, all (approximately) 80 of the building's core columns would have had to fail simultaneously; the fires that did exist were found randomly throughout the building, and there were no more than 4 or 5 fires, total, in the whole building.
Adding to the obvious is Larry Silverstein, who owned buildings 1, 2, and 7 – coincidentally the only 3 buildings that “collapsed” – and who, weeks before the attack, took out multi-billion dollar insurance policies on the buildings. He later went on PBS and admitted that WTC7 was “pulled” by his own suggestion. To “pull” a building is to demolish it. And watching the building collapse, that it was demolished is patently obvious. It starts with the central core columns being blown out, so that none of the building collapses outward and damages other buildings. Then charges are seen blowing up the windows in a wave from the low floors to the top. Finally the entire building collapses all at once, perfectly symmetrical, and lands in the neatest pile of debris you've ever seen. Watch any footage of a controlled demolition and you will see the exact same thing.
In their denial, I've actually had people accept that the building was demolished, but that it was reasonable to demolish the building because of the damage the fires caused – text book collective rationalization. It is lost on them how in only a few hours they wired a 47 story building to be demolished, in the middle of a terrorist attack, with multiple floors on fire – it typically takes weeks for a skilled demolition team to wire a building for controlled demolition. Again, using your own God-give common sense, how possible is all of this? It is not possible at all.
Mainstream news video exists of firefighters and emergency responders warning news crews to get away from the building, or to keep an eye on it because it was going to come down. How could anyone know this, especially, again, regarding a building that suffered only moderate damage? They knew because this was a planned event.
Most people do not remember Building 7 because, as the years progressed, it was wiped from Americans' collective memory by simple omission. Each year, we remember the collapse of the towers, but no mention is made for the loss of Building 7. On the 8th anniversary of the attacks I visited Ground Zero in New York City and saw first hand that the pit that once was the twin towers was still just that – a pit. But Building 7 was already fully rebuilt and completely operational, as if it had been there all along. Surrounded by the hated, the despised, the frightening group of crazy people known as 9-11 Truthers, when I inquired where Building 7 was I had it pointed out to me that Building 7 was rebuilt with haste so that attention would not be drawn to it; so that people would forget it ever happened. And they have, to the great delight of the perpetrators: Building 7 is the smoking gun evidence that proves 9-11 was a pre-planned staged event, as it was obviously brought down by controlled demolition. Pay attention to their ceremonies, to their commentaries, to all of their talk about the events of that day, and notice that Building 7 is never mentioned.
In the case of the Pentagon and Shanksville, one need only to examine the “wreckage” to know something is amiss - amiss in that there was no wreckage. We are led to believe that two jumbo jets were completely obliterated by the jet fuel explosion – the first time in the history of air travel this has ever happened. It is, I suppose, remotely feasible that the passengers, luggage, and fuselage were destroyed, but not one of the four Rolls Royce engines, made of steel and titanium alloy, weighing six tons each, were recovered. Amazingly, even though these impacts and explosions managed to obliterate tempered steel and titanium, human remains were found and identified at the Pentagon site (belonging to those who were in the Pentagon when the plane crashed).
From my close-up inspection, there's no evidence of a plane having crashed anywhere near the Pentagon. The only site, is the actual side of the building that's crashed in. And as I said, the only pieces left that you can see are small enough that you pick up in your hand. There are no large tail sections, wing sections, fuselage, nothing like that anywhere around which would indicate that the entire plane crashed into the side of the Pentagon and then caused the side to collapse. Even though if you look at the pictures of the Pentagon you see that the floors have all collapsed, that didn't happen immediately. It wasn't until almost about 45 minutes later that the structure was weakened enough that all of the floors collapsed. – Jamie McIntyre, CNN, September 11, 2001
We are left to wonder, if you were even aware of this fact before I tell you, why every security/surveillance camera that would've shown a 757 hitting the Pentagon – and there were several cameras that would've shown this – were confiscated by the FBI during the 24 hours after the crash, and the limited footage from these videos released to the public do not show an airplane hitting the building. Aren't there surveillance cameras covering every square inch of the Pentagon's perimeter? Indeed there are. For some reason we are left to speculate – was it a 757? Was it a cruise missile? If it was, after all, a passenger jet that crashed into the Pentagon, all the government has to do is release the videos. To this day, all requests have been denied. One thing that cannot be denied, when reason and common sense are applied, is that the Pentagon could not have been struck by Flight 77 piloted by Hani Hanjour. I will explain this shortly.
Further, like the World Trade Center, this crime scene was scrubbed and cleaned so that any evidence was immediately removed, not to mention contaminated. The FBI, along with Pentagon employees and civilians, combed the lawn, picking up any evidence, and carting it away. None of the pieces have ever been verified as being part of Flight 77 or a Boeing 757. It was just assumed that anything found must've been from the plane. And then, finally, after the evidence had been cleared, after the surveillance tapes had been confiscated, they literally covered up the crime scene, by unloading gravel onto the entire lawn in front of the west wing of the Pentagon. Meanwhile, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania …
I can just remember seeing very small bits of debris everywhere. There really wasn't any large sections of debris or aircraft. … It just looked like somebody just dropped a bunch of metal out of the sky. … It looked like someone took a scrap truck, dug a 10-foot ditch and dumped trash into it. – Somerset County Coroner Wallace Miller
It didn't look like a plane crash because there was nothing that looked like a plane. I never seen anything like it. Just like a big pile of charcoal. – Homer Barron, first responder, Shanksville, PA
We (were) literally surrounded by debris, and there's a very strong odor of scorched earth. It doesn't smell like jet fuel, it smells like … How do you describe it? Burned earth. It smells like burned earth. – Jim Parsons, WTAE-TV
Looking at the crash site itself is a sobering experience. It is difficult to believe that a large Boeing 757 aircraft plunged into the ground with such force that the plane literally disintegrated and created a still smoldering crater. – Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, September 12, 2001
FOX News reporter: I wanna get quickly to Chris Konicki … he's a photographer with the Pittsburgh affiliate, a Fox affiliate. He was back there just a couple minutes ago and Chris, I've seen the pictures, it looks like there's nothing there, except for a hole in the ground.
Photographer Chris Konicki: Ah, basically that's right. The only thing you can see from where we where, ah, was a big gouge in the earth and some broken trees. We could see some people working, walking around in the area, but from where we could see it, there wasn't much left.
Reporter: Any large pieces of debris at all?
Konicki: Nah, there was nothing, nothing that you could distinguish that a plane had crashed there.
Reporter: Smoke? Fire?
Konicki: Nothing. It was absolutely quite. It was, uh, actually very quiet. Um, nothing going on down there. No smoke. No fire. Just a couple of people walking around. They looked like part of the NTSB crew walking around, looking at the pieces.
At 11:43am on September 11, 2001, the Associated Press reported that an airplane had made an emergency landing at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport due to fears there was a bomb on board; it was taken to a secure location and its passengers were evacuated. United Airlines identified the plane as Flight 93. The article and subsequent investigations do not explain how this could be possible, nor what happened to Flight 93 after it landed in Cleveland and had its passengers evacuated. The story was simply revised, and then ultimately forgotten.
But something happened in Shanksville. At the crash site, very little resembling a jumbo jet could be found. Except of course, miraculously, the personal effects of the hijackers. More on that in a moment. But more astounding, there were secondary debris fields up to eight miles away, where residents reported burning debris falling from the sky. Finally, there is the photograph taken by a resident in Shanksville showing the mushroom cloud from the impact of what we assume to be United 93. But the explosion looks more like military ordinance than an airplane crash, when comparison photographs are examined. Considering that, we are told, the jet fuel from the two planes that struck the World Trade Center burned long enough and hot enough to bring both buildings down, one would expect that the jet fuel from United 93 would've burned for some time after the crash took place. As the eyewitness accounts above testify to, there was no burning jet fuel at all. In fact, not much of anything was on fire.
Beckoning you back to the beginning of this chapter, it is important to keep in mind that there are aspects to the conspiracy that may never be known. Did the military just drop an L-RAD or a missile in an open field in Shanksville? Or did a fighter pilot disobey Cheney's stand-down order (which I'll delve into momentarily) and shoot down United 93? The massive debris field and eyewitness testimonies suggest this may have happened. But what happened in Cleveland?
What we can deduce from what we do know with a degree of certainty is that what happened in Shanksville did not occur the way the official conspiracy theory tells us it did. United 93 was not brought down by an act of heroism, though it is pleasing and comforting to believe it was. “Let's Roll” has become the battle cry of a vengeful, blindly furious American public. It was all a lie.
It is not entirely true to say that both planes and everything in them were obliterated. In Shanksville, several of the hijackers IDs, drivers licenses, and/or passports were found, mostly intact, at the site, as well as a red bandanna in Shanksville, supposedly worn by one of them. It is ridiculous to say that the explosion destroyed the entire plane, including indestructible engines, yet these incriminating items were miraculously found at the scene. How convenient for them. Similar documents were found at the Pentagon, and, perhaps most miraculous of all, the passport of Satam Al Suqami, one of the hijackers, flew out of his pocket at the point of impact, survived the massive collision and jet fuel explosion that we are led to believe collapsed the entire 110-story skyscraper, and then survived the collapse, which annihilated the entire building and practically everything in it, and was found in near pristine condition in the rubble. The media reported this without batting an eyelash as to how absurd the whole thing was. And why not? Only the kooks and nutjobs who believe our government could/would do such a thing noticed.
As if you haven't already had your fill of absurdities and impossible coincidences, we delve into the nineteen jihadist kamikazes who supposedly orchestrated the entire convoluted plot, brought an entire nation to its knees, and subverted the laws of physics, perhaps through their unwavering faith in Allah. As much as the official account of how the buildings collapsed is insulting to intelligent people, the ludicrous story behind the “terrorists” involved rivals it.
We begin at the top, with the globalists' very own incarnation of Emmanuel Goldstein. With his apparent death in early 2011, the CIA's go-to man was finally cast aside; we await his inevitable successor, who will undoubtedly terrorize a new generation of Americans who will demand ever more measures be taken to assure their safety as they grow fat and stupid and obsess themselves with reality TV, shopping and other trivium while our best and brightest slaughter the bogeymen on the other side of the world, defending freedom. Indeed, as I've written this account, we've been informed to be frightened of a new threat: a 9-11 anniversary attack, which involved Bin Laden's successor, whoever he is. And no one bothers to ask how utterly idiotic it would be for al Qaeda to try to replicate the 9-11 attacks on the ten year anniversary, as if, with the implementation of the total surveillance state in the years hence, terrorists sit on the toilet without the spooks knowing about it. You must never be allowed to forget to be afraid, that you need to have your liberties stamped out in order to protect you. I digress again.
It is not debatable that Bin Laden denied involvement in the attacks three times in the months subsequent September 11. In the run-up to the Afghanistan campaign, the Taliban have just one simple request for America before we unleash our fury upon their already long-suffering people: show them the evidence that Bin Laden was behind the attack, and they will arrest him and turn him over to an international tribunal. The peace-seeking American government naturally refuses this simple request, which could've averted the longest running war in American history, at the time of this writing now near ten years long, with no end in sight or intended. Besides, Americans wanted blood, carnage, destruction. They wanted to sit and watch what was left of Kabul bombed into the stone age. A simple solution such as this would not do at all.
Meanwhile, two weeks after 9-11, then-Secretary of State Colin Powell promises, “in the near future … a document that will describe quite clearly the evidence that we have linking [bin Laden] to this attack.” The next day, then-Press Secretary Ari Fleischer officially retracts that remark, assuring us all that we are happy to be patient as they decide which information is suitable for us to disseminate. And we were. Ten years on however, the case has never been made. Surely you believe the case is rock-solid, but I assure you, if you were to put on your thinking caps, you won't be able to remember an instance or instances where actual evidence was given to you. Perhaps this is because, as is apparent by viewing bin Laden's FBI Most Wanted web page, they lack the evidence to tie bin Laden to 9-11, being that 9-11 is not listed among the crimes he was wanted for.
Nor was such evidence ever necessary: the incessant media caricature of Bin Laden as the world's sole master of terror made certain that as soon as the second plane slammed into the building, our minds shut off and all we could “think” of was al Qaeda, bin Laden, al Qaeda, bin Laden…
Sadly I was guilty of this as well, and for a whole seven years after.
Eventually, after the debacle at Tora Bora that allowed – and when I say “allowed”, I mean allowed – Bin Laden to escape, “evidence” was conveniently found in the compound in the form of a video of Bin Laden palling around with fellow jihadists, explaining the intricacies of the attack and his involvement in it. It was a sickening example of how we are capable of willfully submitting ourselves to a collective hallucination, as the man in the video is obviously and insultingly not Osama bin Laden. Again, count me among the guilty.
Perhaps the most astounding fact about Bin Laden and his role as the world's most dangerous terrorist, at least formerly, is the case of his stay at an American hospital in Dubai in July, 2001. The London Guarding reported in November, 2001, that Bin Laden stayed for ten days in the hospital, was treated for kidney disease by an American doctor, and was paid a visit by at least two CIA agents and prince Turki al Faisal, then head of Saudi Intelligence. It goes without saying that he was not arrested on the spot.
The question that arises from this is obvious: how could the world's most wanted criminal stay in an American hospital, be treated by an American doctor, and be visited by the CIA and the head of Saudi intelligence, only to be allowed to leave of his own recognizance to return, presumably, to Afghanistan, where we would be led to believe he saw through the final preparations for the 9-11 attacks? It is beyond the scope of this book to go into the history and true identity and purpose of “Osama bin Laden”, which to anyone who's read Orwell's novel 1984 must appear to be the contemporary version of Emmanuel Goldstein. Suffice it to say that he was not a rogue terrorist criminal wanted: dead or alive by our government; he was a CIA asset, with an actual code-name: Tim Osman, which he traveled under when visiting the United States and US military bases abroad. He was a hired jackal, a fictitious bogeyman who, along with his mercenary database known as al Qaeda, was sent out to wreak havoc on the world in the interests of his masters in the US government.
To date, the U.S. government has not been able to determine the origin of the money used for the 9/11 attacks. Ultimately the question is of little practical significance. Al Qaeda had many avenues of funding. If a particular funding source had dried up, al Qaeda could have easily tapped a different source or diverted funds from another project to fund an operation that cost $400,000-$500,000 over nearly two years. – 9-11 Commission Report, chapter 5.4
You may or may not find it astounding that the source of the funding of the most heinous terrorist attack ever to be perpetrated on the United States, or the entire world, has no real practical value to the 9-11 Commission. I suppose it didn't matter to me when the report was released. This, they claim, is because the whole operation was carried out over a two year period on the cheap – a measly $166 per murder – with the transfer of funds made in small amounts. Even if the amounts were small, I'm sure more than a few people, perhaps the family members, who were treated like rodents by the Commission, would still like to know who paid for it all. Regardless, there was at least one major source of funding, the Commission knew about it, and it was no small amount.
On the morning of September 11, the head of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence – ISI, the Pakistani equivalent to the CIA – was at a breakfast meeting on Capitol Hill with Senator Bob Graham and Rep. Porter Goss, the chairmen of the Senate and House Intelligence committees, along with other members of the House Intelligence Committee. Upon hearing of the attack, according to Bob Graham, Pakistan's top spy was, “very empathetic, sympathetic to the people of the United States.” Why was he in America the morning of September 11th?
As to September 11th, federal authorities have told ABC News they have now tracked more than $100,000 from banks in Pakistan, to two banks in Florida, to accounts held by suspected hijack ring leader, Mohammed Atta. – Brian Ross, ABC News, September 30, 2001
The source of that $100,000 transfer to Muhammed Atta was General Mahmoud Ahmad, the head of the Pakistani ISI. Was it an intelligence failure to give red carpet treatment to the money man behind the 9-11 attacks? Or can we just heap this onto the pile of absurdities and coincidences already documented (and I'm not nearly done)?
This, like many essential aspects of the attacks of that day, was reported by multiple mainstream news outlets – CNN, ABC News, the Wall Street Journal. It was submitted to the commission by members of the victims' families, and thus it was irrefutably known to the 9-11 Commission. But since it couldn't be twisted to fit into the official conspiracy theory, which is insulting on its face, it, like many other events and circumstances of the day, officially never happened:
Well, I'm not aware of the $100,000 wired to Muhammed Atta. But, um, Pakistan, I think, is the most dangerous country in the world. – 9-11 Commission co-chair Thomas Kean
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.” – Seymour Hersh, What Went Wrong, New Yorker Magazine, October 2001
Finally, we arrive at The Nineteen: the kamikaze jihadists who supposedly brought a nation to its knees. What evidence do we have of their involvement? The evidence of their involvement is so extensive, so patently obvious, investigators must've thought they'd died and went to CSI heaven.
Aside from the miraculously recovered and incriminating identification documents found at the various crash scenes, Marwan Alshehhi's rental car was discovered at Boston's Logan airport. In it were found an Arabic flight manual, an airport Restricted Area pass, and documents from Huffman Aviation. Nawaf Alhazmi's rental car was discovered at Washington, DC Dulles International Airport. Inside were found instructions from Muhammed Atta, a check made out to a flight school in Phoenix, Arizona, four drawings of a 757 cockpit, a knife, and maps of Washington, DC and New York City. On September 10, Muhammed Atta hitched a flight with fellow 'jacker Abdulaziz al-Omari to Portland, Maine. The reason for this trip is never elaborated. Considering the close proximity to the day of their martyrdom, it must've been significant. Indeed, because their flight from Portland to Boston was delayed – would that their flight to Boston were delayed just a few more minutes! – a piece of Atta's luggage remained in Portland. This suitcase was a treasure trove of damning evidence, including airline uniforms, flight manuals, instructions to his fellow hijackers, and, strangly, Atta's last will and testament. We are led to believe, if we bother to think about it, that a man smart enough to outwit the most advanced defense mechanism in the history of humankind was dumb enough to bring his own will onto a plane doomed to be annihilated in a massive explosion. But then again, Satam Alsuqami's passport made it through it all, so perhaps Atta was onto something.
Known as “the cradle of US Navy Aviation”, the Naval Air Station at Pensacola, Florida was, according to drivers' licenses and car registrations, the home of Saeed Alghamdi, Ahmad Alnami (both from United Airlines 93), and Ahmed Alghamdi (United Airlines 175) - 10 Radford Boulevard, to be exact – a base roadway on which residences for foreign-military flight trainees are located. Muhammad Atta graduated from the International Officers School at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. Abdulaziz Alomari attended Aerospace Medical School at Brooks Air Force base in San Antonio, Texas. And Saeed Alghamdi attended the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterrey, California, a US Army installation and the Department of Defense's primary foreign language school.
Could it be possible that five 9-11 hijackers lived at and/or trained at US military bases, and this is just another insignificant coincidence? Of course, if you follow the media's lead, then yes, absolutely. All the Department of Defense had to do is tell them, “We are probably not talking about the same people,” and, even though the bulk of the above information originated from a Newsweek article, it was immediately relegated to cuckoo conspiracy status.
Though you are not supposed to think too deeply into this – in fact don't think about it at all – there is no confusion of identity in the case of Khalid Almihdhar and Nawaf Alhazmi (both from American Airlines Flight 77). Their last known residence before they “martyred” themselves was near San Diego, where they were roommates with an FBI informant. What a coincidence. But it gets more absurd: at least six 9/11 hijackers, including all who were supposedly on Flight 77 – Hani Hanjour, Majed Moqed, Khalid Almihdhar, Nawaf Alhazmi, and Salem Alhazmi, were living in Laurel, Maryland through August, 2001. NSA expert James Bamford later tells us why this is significant:
The terrorist cell that eventually took over the airliner that crashed into the Pentagon ended up living, working, planning and developing all their activities in Laurel, Maryland, which happens to be the home of the NSA. So they were actually living alongside NSA employees as they were plotting all these things.
So not only are 9-11 hijackers living at US military bases, not only do they attend US military schools, not only do they room with the FBI, but they live among the National Security Agency.
Let us for a moment refrain from thinking about the absurdity of this going on under our nose without our intelligence gathering and military institutions knowing it. That's absurd enough on its face. What is truly insulting is the idea that al Qaeda would be stupid enough to plot the most complex, devastating terrorist plot in the history of the world while planting its operatives where they would be most likely to be discovered. I ask you, who is the whackjob: me, or people who actually believe this nonsense?
The absurdities compound. We are told that three commercial jumbo aircraft were flown into their targets with expert precision, yet we know that all of the pilots received minimal flight training. Easily the worst of the lot was Hani Hanjour, Flight 77, which (allegedly) crashed into the Pentagon. Hanjour was so inept at piloting it cannot even be said he was an amateur. In fact, he couldn't even drive an automobile adeptly enough to pass his driving test, much less fly a sophisticated, state-of-the-art commercial jumbo jet. And yet Hanjour's flight performance was the most difficult. Russ Wittenberg, who flew large commercial airliners for 35 years after serving in Vietnam as a fighter pilot, said that it would have been “totally impossible for an amateur who couldn't even fly a Cessna to maneuver the jetliner in such a highly professional manner.” Former Navy and Pan-American Airlines pilot Ted Muga said, “I just can't imagine an amateur even being able to come close to performing a maneuver of that nature.” And former 757 pilot Ralph Omholt tells us, “The idea that an unskilled pilot could have flown this trajectory is simply too ridiculous to consider.”
[Hanjour was] a weak student who was wasting our resources. … He didn't do his homework, didn't attend on time and he would sort of come and go. … He was not able to fly solo in a small plane, which is equivalent to getting out of a parking space [in a car] and stopping. … We didn’t want him back at our school because he was not serious about becoming a good pilot. – Duncan Hastie, Cockpit Resource Management
[Hanjour had] only the barest understanding what the instruments were there to do. – Wes Fults, flight simulator manager, Sawyer Aviation, Phoenix, Arizona, which, according to the Washington Post, was “known locally as a flight school of last resort.”
Federal Aviation Administration records show he obtained a commercial pilot's license in April 1999, but how and where he did so remains a lingering question that FAA officials refuse to discuss. His limited flying abilities do afford an insight into one feature of the attacks: The conspiracy apparently did not include a surplus of skilled pilots. – Amy Goldstein, Lena H. Sun and George Lardner Jr. (of The Washington Post), Hanjour an Unlikely Terrorist, The Cape Cod Times, October 21, 2001
Hani Hanjour, who investigators contend piloted airliner that crashed into Pentagon on Sept 11, was reported to Federal Aviation Administration in Feb 2001 after instructors at Pan Am International Flight Academy in Phoenix found his piloting skills so shoddy and his grasp of English so inadequate that they questioned whether his pilot's license was genuine. – Jim Yardley, A Trainee Noted for Incompetence, New York Times, May 4, 2002
There was no suspicion as far as evildoing. It was more of a very typical instructional concern that “you really shouldn't be in the air.” – Marilyn Ladner, vice president, Pan Am International Flight Academy
I'm still to this day amazed that he could have flown into the Pentagon. He could not fly at all. – unnamed ex-Pan Am International Flight Academy employee, quoted in Jim Yardley's A Trainee Noted for Incompetence, New York Times, May 4, 2002
Months before Hani Hanjour is believed to have flown an American Airlines jet into the Pentagon, managers at an Arizona flight school reported him at least five times to the FAA … They reported him not because they feared he was a terrorist, but because his English and flying skills were so bad, they told the Associated Press, they didn't think he should keep his pilot's license. – Vincent Gonzales, CBS News, May 5, 2002
I couldn't believe he had a commercial license of any kind with the skills that he had. – Peggy Chevrette, manager for the now-defunct JetTech flight school in Phoenix, Arizona
[W]hen Baxter and fellow instructor Ben Conner took the slender, soft-spoken Hanjour on three test runs during the second week of August, they found he had trouble controlling and landing the single-engine Cessna 172. Even though Hanjour showed a federal pilot's license and a log book cataloging 600 hours of flying experience, chief flight instructor Marcel Bernard declined to rent him a plane without more lessons. – Thomas Frank, New York Newsday, Tracing Trail of Hijackers, September 23, 2001
The speed, the maneuverability, the way that he turned, we all thought in the radar room, all of us experienced air traffic controllers, that that was a military plane. You don't fly a 757 in that manner. It's unsafe. … And it was just a countdown. Ten miles west. Nine miles west. Our supervisor picked up our line to the White House and started relaying to them the information, [that] we have an unidentified very fast-moving aircraft inbound toward your vicinity, 8 miles west. … And it went six, five, four. And I had it in my mouth to say, three, and all of a sudden the plane turned away. In the room, it was almost a sense of relief. This must be a fighter. This must be one of our guys sent in, scrambled to patrol our capital, and to protect our president, and we sat back in our chairs and breathed for just a second. – Danielle O'Brien, air traffic controller, Dulles International Airport
According to the official conspiracy theory, Hanjour takes Flight 77 on a direct path to the Pentagon. At this point, it would be easiest, and inflict the most damage and casualties, if he were to simply continue on this path and crash the plane into the building. Instead, he performs an aerobatic, nearly impossible 270-degree downward spiral, and maneuvers the plane head-on fifty feet above the ground at over 400 knots (over 460mph) to strike the one side of the building that had be renovated and reinforced to bolster it against an attack. Had the plane struck anywhere else, the death toll would've been in the thousands, including some of the top Pentagon and military brass, and possibly our friend, Secretary of State, Donald “Aspartame” Rumsfeld; instead it killed 125. What a coincidence.
The adversary is closer to home. It's the Pentagon bureaucracy. … In fact it could be said that it's a matter of life and death, ultimately, every American's. … According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. – Donald Rumsfeld, September 10, 2001
Not only being the sole side of the Pentagon with walls reinforced against an attack, the destruction of this section of the Pentagon forever erased, except from Youtube and the minds of quack conspiracy theorists everywhere, the case of the missing $2.3 trillion. Which is why you've likely never heard of it.
What does the 9-11 Commission have to say about this miraculous, reckless and unnecessary performance by Hanjour? It claims that that Hanjour was “perhaps the most experienced and highly trained of all the 9/11 pilots.” This despite the fact that Saeed Alghamdi, who is still alive, was (is) an airline pilot in Saudi Arabia. This might explain why, though Alghamdi, a seasoned commercial jet pilot, was allegedly among the group who hijacked United flight 93, the 9-11 Commission lists amateur Ziad Jarrah as its pilot.
Further, Flight 77 was described as unusually light in passengers that day. On what was originally to be a trans-continental flight, from Dulles International in Washington, DC, to Los Angeles International Airport, Flight 77 – with all four hijacked planes filled to similar light capacity on trans-continental flights – only 64 out of 188 seats are filled. Anyone who flies knows this occurs about as often as seeing a unicorn grazing on your grass in your backyard.
Moreover, the passengers who were on the two-thirds empty Boeing 757 included Barbara Olsen, the wife of Solicitor General Ted Olsen, and employees and representatives from Boeing, Raytheon, Lockheed-Martin, the Department of Defense, the Navy, the Army, and American Airlines. That's quite a list of military, government, and military industrial complex luminaries on one sparsely populated flight, which just happened to be the one supposedly hijacked and flown into the Pentagon. Added to this list is Charles Burlingame, the pilot, who was an aeronautical engineer and a graduate of the Naval Academy and “Top Gun” fighter pilot school. He also worked with the Pentagon developing anti-terrorism strategies, before retiring from the Navy in 1989. And yet we are told that Hanjour and his cohorts were able, armed with box cutters, to hijack Burlingame's plane and crash it into the Pentagon without incident. Is that even remotely believable? Not if you expend the necessary energy to contemplate it, which is more than most people are willing to do.
At this point, the hard-core skeptic is having a really difficult time with this alternative view. If Flight 77 didn't hit the Pentagon, what did? What happened to the passengers and crew, who have families who all, we assume, believe they were killed that day? What about the eyewitnesses who testified to seeing a commercial jet strike the Pentagon? There are those who are sure it was a cruise missile or a bomb, and they claim to have all the proof necessary. I, personally, have not seen smoking gun evidence that proves beyond rational doubt that the Pentagon was struck by either a plane, a missile, or a bomb. It was obviously struck by something, but I won't say what it was. This is one of those instances which, so long as the government withholds relevant evidence that would show what happened there – in particular the confiscated surveillance tapes – this conspiracy “theory” would be laid to rest, one way or the other. What the above evidence does show is that it is impossible for Flight 77, piloted by Hani Hanjour, to have struck the Pentagon. Was there another pilot on board we are not aware of? Not among the hijackers: Hanjour was the only one on board known to have any training, however inept he was. Was the plane commandeered by remote control? It is absolutely possible, as it is possible it was a missile or a bomb. For now, what didn't happen will have to suffice minus relevant evidence.
Moving on, the official narrative tells us that the 9-11 hijackers were devout fundamentalist Muslims progressively living their lives toward one final destination – their deaths in a fiery cataclysm, and the entrance into paradise, married to the black-eyed, the 72 virgins that await those who die a martyr's death. The 9-11 Commission Report echoes this, reporting that the hijackers were a “trained cadre of operatives willing to die,” and that Atta in particular had become “fanatically” religious. Their behavior during their “final” days tells a different story.
Three guys cavorting with lap dancers at the Pink Pony Nude Theater.
Two others knocking back glasses of Stolichnaya and rum and Coke at a fish joint in Hollywood the weekend before committing suicide and mass murder.
That might describe the behavior of several men who are suspects in Tuesday’s terrorist attack, but it is not a picture of devout Muslims, experts say. Let alone that of religious zealots in their final days on Earth. – Jody A. Benjamin, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, September 16, 2001
According to a girlfriend of Muhammed Atta's, a Florida restaurant manager named Amanda Knox, he loved pork chops, drank heavily, and snorted cocaine. In February, 2001, Atta, Knox and another women went on a three day drug and booze bender – “a continuous party” – in the Florida Keys. Authorities would later threaten Knox not to say anything more about Atta. “I can't really discuss anything. I'm afraid I'll get in trouble.” Knox would later retract her story.
Five days before the attack, Atta and his cousin visited a bar in Hollywood, Florida, already drunk, where they continued to drink themselves into a stupor, and refused to pay for their bill, despite bragging about being American Airlines pilots. Waleed M. Alshehri and Wail Alshehri spent September 9, 2001 with a high-priced hooker in a Boston hotel room - twice. In late Winter, 2001, hijacker Ziad Jarrah lives in Jacksonville, Florida, where he is known to frequent strip clubs. According to the FBI, Hamza Alghamdi and Marwan Alshehhi make two purchases of “pornographic video and sex toys” from a Florida store. They spend $252.17 on videos and toys at Video Outlet in Deerfield Beach on July 4, then return on July 27 and spend another $183.22. They are also reported to have attended strip shows, watched porn, and use an escort service.
Five days after 9-11, the UK Daily Mail ran the following report:
At the Palm Beach bar Sunrise 251, Atta and al Shehhi spent $1,000 in 45 minutes on Krug and Perrier-Jouet champagne … Atta was with a 6 foot busty brunette in her late twenties; the other man was with a shortish blonde. Both women were known locally as regular companions of high-rollers.
In October, 2001, the San Francisco Chronicle reported on our jihadists' getaway in Vegas. In a story titled Agents of Terror Leave Their Mark on Sin City, reported:
The self-styled warriors for Allah -- who believed their hijackings would earn them eager virgins in heaven -- engaged in some decidedly un-Islamic sampling of prohibited pleasures in America's reputed capital of moral corrosion.
This included frequenting a strip joint on a dreary stretch of the old downtown known mainly for $10 street hookers and easy heroin, where they were known to receive lap dances (and tip poorly for them). The official narrative tells us the purpose of their (multiple – at least six) meetings is unknown – the FBI actually knocked on doors looking for a Vegas connection to the 9-11 attack. This belays the obvious: the hijackers came here – there were countless other places they could've met that would've been less conspicuous – because they were pigs who enjoyed some of the most forbidden behaviors allowed for in Islam: drugs, alcohol, eating pork, gambling, and prostitution. There are of course those who justify this by claiming they were just trying not to act too devout, lest they draw attention to themselves, but it is clear they indulged just a bit too enthusiastically.
Finally, amazingly, as I've hinted at throughout, several of the 9-11 hijackers – as many as seven of them: Waleed Alshehri, Wail Alshehri, Mohand Alshehri, Salem Alhazmi, Saeed Alghamdi, and Ahmed Alnami – have been confirmed by mainstream media, particularly BBC, as being alive and well. But as happened in the case of the hijackers training and living in US military bases, the BBC story was dismissed with the claim that Arabs often have very similar sounding names. You might be tempted to accept this explanation, without bothering to match the photographs of those BBC claims are still alive with the official government photographs of the 9-11 hijackers. If you did you'd discover these are not different people.
On October 25, 1999, a lear jet carrying champion golfer Payne Stewart loses pressure at high altitude, rendering the pilot and passengers unconscious as it traveled on autopilot. After air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane, it was tracked by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), assisted by several Air Force and Air National Guard fighters and an AWACS radar control plane, up until it crashed.
Air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane at 9:44am; NORAD’s Southeast Air Defense Sector was notified of the emergency at 9:55am. Pentagon officials said the military began its pursuit of the rogue jet at 10:08am, following it for much of the four hours it flew, its windows frosted over, until it ran out of fuel and crashed in an uninhabited area of South Dakota. Some years later, the 9-11 Commission would compare the military's response to this incident with its performance on September 11, 2001, and found, ridiculously, that “There is no significant difference in NORAD’s reaction to the two incidents.”
This claim is difficult to gauge because there are, officially, three explanations for NORAD's utter lack of any kind of defense of this country on that day. Days after the attack, we were told that no warplanes were in the air until after Flight 77 struck the Pentagon at 9:38am. This despite the fact that, it was reported, the hijacking of Flight 11 had been known since 8:15am. This means that for approximately 83 minutes – as opposed to the 13 or so minutes it took them to track the Payne Stewart jet – the military sat on its hands while our nation was supposedly under massive terrorist attack.
Days later a second story was released, indicating that the military had scrambled jets, but, because the FAA had supposedly delayed in notifying them, they could not intercept the hijacked planes in time. In mid-September, 2001, NORAD made this narrative official, providing a timeline which indicated contrasted when the FAA notified NORAD with when fighter jets were sent airborne. This new timeline indicated the FAA had notified NORAD that Flight 175 had been hijacked a full 20 minutes before it struck the South Tower. We can reasonably assume that, while perhaps not much could've been done to stop Flight 175 from striking the South Tower, there was more than enough time to muster a response, particularly given that there was no way to know if more planes might be headed for New York City and Washington.
The second explanation being woefully inadequate, the 9-11 Commission simply claimed that NORAD's timeline, which had stood as the official narrative for nearly three years, was “incorrect”, and put out a third story, as if no one would notice – and who in fact did notice, except the kooks and conspiracy theorists – completely rewriting NORAD's timeline. According to this new timeline, the FAA did not even notify NORAD about Flight 175 or Flight 77 until after they had struck the South Tower of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, respectively. No indication was given as to how or why the Pentagon's second story could stand for so long, only to be shown wrong by the 9-11 Commission. They were either incompetent or they were lying.
Within the FAA, it is standard operating procedure for the an air traffic controller to notify a superior immediately if any indication is given of a hijacking. If the issue is not resolved immediately, the superior is to contact NORAD, which will then scramble fighter jets to intercept and determine the seriousness of the situation. According to the United States Air Force website, F-15s can go from "scramble order" to 29,000 feet in only two and a half minutes; F-15s fly at over 1800 miles per hour.
Corroborating this is Ralph Eberhart, the head of NORAD, who stated that after the FAA senses that something is wrong, “it takes about one minute” for it to contact NORAD, after which NORAD can scramble fighter jets “within a matter of minutes to anywhere in the United States.” These are post-9-11 statements, so we might assume they reflect a change in policy after the attacks, however, according to an Air Traffic Control document sent out in 1998,
The U.S. military has their own network of radars looking over the U.S. borders, and out over the ocean (NORAD). They are tied into the FAA computer to be able to get information on incoming flights from overseas, but if they see a target over international waters headed toward the U.S., without flight plan information, they will call on the "shout" line to the appropriate Center sector for an ID. Sector 66 might get a call to ID a radar target, and if 66 has no datablock or other information on it, the military will usually scramble an intercept flight. Essentially always they turn out to be private pilots ("VFR") not talking to anybody, who stray too far outside the boundary, then get picked up on their way back in. But, procedures are procedures, and they will likely find two F-18's on their tail within 10 or so minutes.
In October, 2001 the Calgary Herald reported that in the year 2000, NORAD had scrambled fighters 129 times. Days after 9/11, NORAD spokesman Major Mike Snyder told the Boston Globe that “[NORAD's] fighters routinely intercept aircraft.” This is in stark contrast to NORAD's performance on 9-11.
Even more bizarre is that, despite involving three grossly contradictory stories, the official narrative on NORAD's lack of response is accepted without question. As David Ray Griffin adeptly explains,
Let's say that the police ask Charlie Jones where he was Saturday night. He says he was at the movie theater, but they say, "No, the movie theater has been closed all week." Then Charlie says, "Oh, that's right, I was with my girl friend." But, the police say, "No, we checked with her and she was home with her husband." If at that point Charlie says, "Oh, now I remember, I was home reading my Bible," you are probably not going to believe him.
And yet, that is precisely what the official narrative has told us, and we implicitly trust it and defend it with great vim and verve.
Worse, the third official story is contradicted by considerable evidence, if not common sense. The 9-11 Commission claims NORAD did not know about Flight 175 until it crashed into the South Tower. However, according to a story in the Toronto Star, Captain Michael Jellinek, a Canadian who on 9/11 was overseeing NORAD's headquarters in Colorado, was on the phone with NORAD as he watched Flight 175 strike the South Tower. He then asked, “Was that the hijacked aircraft you were dealing with?” NORAD responded, “Yes.”
The Commission's timeline is also contradicted by a memo sent to the Commission by Laura Brown, Deputy Assistant Commissioner for Public Affairs at the FAA. Her memo states,
Within minutes after the first aircraft hit the World Trade Center, the FAA immediately established several phone bridges that included FAA field facilities, the FAA Command Center, FAA headquarters, DOD, the Secret Service, and other government agencies. The US Air Force liaison to the FAA immediately joined the FAA headquarters phone bridge and established contact with NORAD on a separate line. The FAA shared real-time information on the phone bridges about the unfolding events, including information about loss of communication with aircraft, loss of transponder signals, unauthorized changes in course, and other actions being taken by all the flights of interest, including Flight 77.
This indicates that the FAA had been sharing information about Flight 77 even before the formal notification time of 9:24. This memo was read into the Commission record by Commission Ben Veniste on May 23, 2003, but the final report fails to mention this memo.
What we see here is a level of incompetence so great it can only be described as willful. But there is more to the story than just the actions – or lack thereof – of NORAD that day. There is the testimony before the 9-11 commission of the Secretary of Transportation under George W. Bush, Norman Mineta. Conventional wisdom remembers Mineta as the man responsible for grounding all planes in the United States after United 93 allegedly crashed in Shanksville. But his testimony was so explosive, so damning, it is further testimony to the uselessness of our political system and media, that evidence that could have so radically altered the official narrative was presented in the light of day and yet, again, exists only on Youtube and in the minds of conspiracy quacks in their pajamas hiding in their parents' basement.
Not only does it all but implicitly finger at least one of the persons responsible for ordering NORAD to stand down, it is also throws a cog in multiple witnesses' timelines, from Vice President Dick Cheney to the 9-11 Commission itself. But this testimony does not fall into line with the official narrative, which is infallible and sacrosanct, and so Mineta's testimony was scrubbed from the final report and the 9-11 Commission archive. He tells us,
During the time then … the airplane coming in to the Pentagon … there was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, “The plane is 50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out.” And when it got down to, “The plane is 10 miles out,” the young man also said to the vice president, “Do the orders still stand?” And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, “Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?” Well, at the time I didn't know what all that meant.
This, it would seem, in a sane would, would open up multiple avenues of inquiry and investigation. Who was this unknown young man? We'd like to hear from him. If the Vice President, at the highest level of our government, was aware that Flight 77 was on a collision course with the Pentagon, why weren't evacuation orders issued? Even if it were not known that the west wing of the Pentagon would be struck, rather than any other part of the building which would've caused far greater casualties, at least 125 lives could've been saved. As with the World Trade Center, the more casualties that can be caused, the greater the dramatic impact. And 9-11 was, if anything, designed for maximum dramatic response from the American people.
And finally, the most obvious question raised by Mineta's testimony: what, exactly, were the “orders” the young man inquired about that generated such an annoyed response from Cheney? Clearly the orders were not to shoot Flight 77 down before it struck the Pentagon. Not only is it clear that someone obstructed NORAD from defending the nation during this attack, it is widely believed, and should be assumed, that the Pentagon is defended by retractable surface-to-air missile batteries. Even if this is unfounded, Andrews Air Force Base is only ten miles from the Pentagon.
Consider: it was definitely know by 9:03am – the moment flight 175 struck the South Tower – that this was a massive terrorist attack involving multiple hijacked aircraft. This is a full 34 minutes before Flight 77 struck the Pentagon. It takes a monumental leap of faith to believe, with this knowledge in hand, that this failure was simply the bureaucratic bumblings of a multi-trillion dollar defense mechanism. Richard P Myers, who at the time was in line to become the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, “We're pretty good if the threat is coming from outside; we're not so good if it's coming from the inside.” Why is there a difference, what could that difference possibly be, and why did no one press him to elaborate?
Boston Center: Hi, Boston Center T.M.U. [Traffic Management Unit], we have a problem here. We have a hijacked aircraft headed towards New York, and we need you guys to, we need someone to scramble some F-16s or something up there, help us out.
Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS): Is this real-world or exercise?
Boston Center: No, this is not an exercise, not a test.
I had not originally intended this chapter to be so involved. Not that I didn't want to cover all aspects of the conspiracy; I realize that not all levels of the conspiracy will be known, but I do know that what is available to us is enough to indict our government for perpetrating the crime, and the 9-11 Commission for aiding and abetting in the coverup. I originally wrote in my blog about 9-11 years ago, but, having expanded on it now in a far more involved manner, I had not realized at the time how woefully inadequate my original piece was. This time, wanting to cover as much of the scope of the conspiracy as I was able, it seemed as though a dozen times I thought I was near completing it, only to be reminded of pieces of the puzzle I'd not covered yet that were just too important to leave out.
That said, I will now attempt to bring this chapter to a close, mercifully with one final impossible coincidence. But this coincidence is actually several coincidences wrapped into one: the war games accuring on 9-11 that mimic, almost to a “T”, the actual terrorist attack going on at the same time.
But first, let's fast forward to the aftermath, where we hear, on multiple occasions, President Bush and members of his administration waxing dramatic about how they could not possibly have envisioned such an attack occurring in the United States; thus this is why our response was so pathetically incompetent.
Never did, in anybody's thought process about how to protect America did we ever think … that, uh …the evildoers … would fly no one, but four commercial aircraft into precious US targets – never. – George W Bush, September 16, 2001
I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center; take another one and slam it into the Pentagon. – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, May 16, 2002
Nobody in our government, at least, and I don't think the prior government could envision flying airplanes into buildings … on such a massive scale. – George W Bush, April 13, 2004
That turns out not to be true. According to an April 18, 2004 piece in USA Today,
In the two years before the Sept. 11 attacks, the North American Aerospace Defense Command conducted exercises simulating what the White House says was unimaginable at the time: hijacked airliners used as weapons to crash into targets and cause mass casualties.
One of the imagined targets was the World Trade Center. In another exercise, jets performed a mock shootdown over the Atlantic Ocean of a jet supposedly laden with chemical poisons headed toward a target in the United States. In a third scenario, the target was the Pentagon — but that drill was not run after Defense officials said it was unrealistic, NORAD and Defense officials say.
NORAD, in a written statement, confirmed that such hijacking exercises occurred. It said the scenarios outlined were regional drills, not regularly scheduled continent-wide exercises.
“Numerous types of civilian and military aircraft were used as mock hijacked aircraft," the statement said. "These exercises tested track detection and identification; scramble and interception; hijack procedures; internal and external agency coordination and operational security and communications security procedures.”
One such exercise, known as Amalgam Virgo, took place in early June, 2001. One scenario simulated involved a commercial aircraft being hijacked and flown into the US Capitol building. The excuse given in this case is that these scenarios involved hijacked planes being flown in from foreign countries, not from within the United States. We must, however, ask: what's the difference? It has already been established that NORAD was aware of the hijackings with enough advanced notice to foment at least some type of response; yet remarkably, we are expected to believe that after Flight 77 struck the Pentagon and the event was all but over, a light bulb went off in their heads and they finally thought, “Hey, aren't we supposed to be defending this nation against this attack? We'd better get some planes in the air!”
To add to the confusion, and to add to plausible deniability, a number of the same types of war games were taking place the exact same morning of the attacks. What a coincidence.
Cynthia McKinney: We had four war games going on on September 11, and the question that I tried to pose before the Secretary (Rumsfeld) had to go to lunch was whether or not the activities of the four war games going on on September 11 actually impaired our ability to respond to the attacks.
Richard Myers, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff:The answer to the question is, no it did not impair our response. In fact … it enhanced our ability to respond.
This is one of those instances where common sense must be hurdled in order to swallow the official narrative. Were there any war games going on during the Payne Stewart incident, or any of the dozens of incidents where NORAD scrambled fighters to intercept wayward private and commercial aircraft? If interceptions of this type are “routine”, and NORAD's response to the attacks of the day was anything but routine, then how could the coinciding war games have actually helped NORAD's response, which was, literally, non-existent?
Vigilant Guardian was the name of Pentagon war game exercises conducted every year until September 11, 2001. In fact, on that date a Vigilant Guardian exercise was in its second day, with one of the scenarios involving hijacked airplanes targeting New York City. Fort Belvoir, located 10 miles south of the Pentagon, ran its own drill that day, intended to test security against a terrorist attack. The National Reconnaissance Office in Virginia ran its own drill beginning at 8:45am, conducted in conjunction with the Central Intelligence Agency, in which a hijacked plane is crashed into their building.
Meanwhile, under an exercise known as Norther Vigilance, fighter jets are sent to Canada and Alaska to monitor a fleet of Russian MiGs running their own training exercise. As part of Northern Vigilance, inputs, or “phantoms”, were inserted onto military radar screens, indicating errant hijacked aircraft for them to track. Phantoms appear real to those participating in the exercise, so that, on September 11, anyone participating in Northern Vigilance would not be able to tell the difference between the phantoms and the actual hijacked aircraft attacking New York and Washington, DC. Also during that morning, three F-16s out of Andrews AFB, which is about 10 miles from the Pentagon, are ordered to fly over 180 nautical miles away for a training mission in North Carolina.
So to recap, on the morning of September 11, the military and various intelligence agencies just so happen to be simulating drills, which involve, among other things, terrorist attacks, with scenarios including hijacked aircraft going in and out of radar, some which are crashed into buildings in New York and Washington, DC, while fighter jets are diverted away from the Northeast Corridor where the attacks take place. Not only should you not think anything conspiracy-like about all of this, but you are expected to believe this activity actually enhanced the military's response to the attack, not hindered it. Who, exactly, are the quacks here?
The chain of evidence – this mountain of damning facts that point incontrovertibly to a false flag black op – goes on and on, from the “put options” on American and United Airlines bought in massive numbers prior to the attack, to the numerous officials being told not to fly that day (the mayor of Los Angeles was told by none other than Condolisa Rice herself not to fly that day). The official conspiracy theory and those perpetrating it need not trouble themselves with ludicrous, easily disproven facts and assertions; impossible coincidences. Most people cannot distinguish between unofficial and official conspiracy theories; in terms of conspiracy theories, there only exists the unofficial, which they do not consider “unofficial”. It's just crazy, period. They will never examine these facts to discover the validity of the official story, because there is no middle ground between the government's story – historical fact – and the kooks and the quacks – up there with Elvis still being alive, the moon landing being staged, and people being abducted by aliens.
Rational thought does not play a part in the discussion. The very idea that the US government would do such a thing is a blasphemy so horrid that the evidence cannot be intelligently dissected. The sense of guilt one feels in considering such an allegation is an insurmountable obstacle to seeing the truth. The evidence, no matter how compelling, no matter how obvious, is background noise. The ego in its vigorous defense of its identities, particularly with its sense of patriotism, completely tunes them out. It cannot even be admitted that the nutjobs and the kooks actually may actually be onto something here, which, while not proving or suggesting there may have been a government plot involved, presents questions that demand answers. They would find themselves immediately outcast; their friends and family would mock them behind their backs; they would become a figure of fun. In today's world, social standing and prestige is infinitely more important than the truth.
Despite all of this, there exists a rapidly expanding minority in this country that, with the wealth of information available to them in this information age, cannot ignore the truth any longer. With the wars based on lies, with the maniacal assault on our civil liberties, the youth of today – and many of our elders – do not have the same blind patriotic attachment to their government as previous generations. Sooner or later, the truth will permeate our entire society. There are only two types of people: those who know 9-11 was an inside job, and those who will.
