9/11 facts and questions I’ll bet you can’t answer without being called a conspiracy theorist!


 

 

There were at least 86 independent cameras (gas stations, grocery stores, etc…) at, around, and pointed at the Pentagon on 9/11. In fact, it is the most surveiled area in the United States. All of the footage from these cameras were taken by the government. Why would all film footage from all 86 cameras at and surrounding the Pentagon be confiscated and never released to the public? There is one thing that would easily end all speculation into 9/11 – the camera footage from those 86 cameras. If there were nothing to hide, why would the government keep this film footage (the ultimate indisputable proof) from us?

BBC reporter Jane Standley, as she stood in front of the erect Solomon Bros. Building (WTC7), reported live to BBC London that building 7 had fallen 20 minutes before this building actually fell. Streaming news on BBC reported this as well. News footage was then lost, or cut. WTC7 fell minutes later after multiple explosions were heard, after new owner Larry Silverstein admittedly ordered the demolition with the industry term “pull-it”, and after firefighters at the scene counted down to ‘0’. If the collapse wasn’t expected, then why were there news announcements and a countdown? If the collapse was expected, how could demolition explosives be planted in a burning building in less than 8 hours? Why would they then cover this fact up?

George W. Bush lied in a town hall meeting when he said – verbatim:

I’d ah- was sitting outside ah- the- the classroom waitin’ to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower, of-er-a-of-a-T-ya know the TV was obviously on and I, I used to fly myself and I said, well there’s one terrible pilot, and ah- I said it must have been ah- horrible accident.

Bush was referring here to the day of 9/11, as he was about to go into a classroom to visit and read to children. The problem is, the video footage of the first plane hitting the Twin Towers wasn’t aired on broadcast TV until the next day, September 12th. So, the president could not have seen what he said he saw. As you might remember, Bush was told about the second plane inside the classroom, interrupting his classic “My Pet Goat” reading.

–Ω–

Osama Bin Laden has never been charged with any of the crimes of 9/11. On the FBI’s most wanted list, Bin Laden is wanted for other acts of terror, but not 9/11. He has never been indicted with any crime related to 9/11 in the 8 years since the so-called ‘attacks’. Why is this? Because there is apparently no concrete evidence relating Bin Laden to 9/11.

–Ω–

Osama Bin Laden has a history, as an asset for the C.I.A. His asset name is actually Tim Osman. In fact, Bin Laden was receiving kidney dialysis at a U.S. hospital in Dubai just prior to 9/11. Interestingly, Bin Laden stated on Al Jazeera Television on September 16, 2001 that he had no knowledge of the attacks. He also stated that the attacks of 9/11 appeared to be carried out by individuals with their own motivation. This interview was only aired once, and then never heard of again.

Marvin P. Bush, the president’s younger brother, was a principal in a company called Securacom, which provided security for the World Trade Center, United Airlines, and Dulles International Airport. The company had an ongoing contract to handle security at the World Trade Center “up to the day the buildings fell down.” On the weekend of September 8-9, 2001, WTC tower 2 (the south tower) was powered down – meaning there was no electrical supply for 36 hrs from floor 50 and up… “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.” Marvin Bush was in New York on 9/11.

Is ‘Al-Qaeda” a fitting name for a terrorist group? Well, the widely known definition of ‘Al Qaeda’ is translated in English as ‘The Base’. However, this is not the only translation of the ominous term. There is another. “Ana raicha Al Qaeda” is a colloquial for “I’m going to the toilet”. A very common and widespread use of the word “Al-Qaeda” in different Arab countries in the public language is for ‘the toilet bowl’. This name comes from the Arabic verb “Qa’ada” which means “to sit” – pertinently, on the “Toilet Bowl”. In most Arabs homes there are two kinds of toilets: “Al-Qaeda” also called the “Hamam Franji” or foreign toilet, and “Hamam Arabi” or “Arab toilet” which is a hole in the ground. Lest we forget it, the potty used by small children is called “Ma Qa’adia” or “Little Qaeda”. And so, one must ask… Why would a terrorist group call itself ‘The Toilet’?

In September 2002, FBI Director Robert Mueller told CNN twice that there is “no legal proof to prove the identities of the suicidal hijackers.” Of these supposed Arab “terrorists” named by the U.S. government on 9/11 as the “hijackers”, the following were found to be alive after the events of 9/11: Waleed M. Alshehri, Wail M. Alshehri , Abdulaziz Alomari, Mohand Alshehri, Salem Alhazmi, Saeed Alghamdi, Ahmed Alnami. One must ask how this is possible?

Saeed Al-Ghamdi is one of three hijackers that US officials have said are linked to Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda network.” – BBC

I was completely shocked. For the past 10 months I have been based in Tunis with 22 other pilots learning to fly an Airbus 320. The FBI provided no evidence of my presumed involvement in the attacks.– Saeed Al-Ghamdi, Telegraph 23rd September 2001

Abdel Aziz Al-Omari and Saeed Hussein Gharamallah Al-Ghamdi, are well in life, the first in Saudi Arabia and the second in Tunisia for nine months.” – Wal Fadjri: 21st September 2001

A Saudi man has reported to authorities that he is the real Abdul Aziz Al-Omari, and claims his passport was stolen in 1995 while he studied electrical engineering at the University of Denver. Al-Omari says he informed police of the theft.” – ABC News

I couldn’t believe it when the FBI put me on their list. They gave my name and my date of birth, but I am not a suicide bomber. I am here. I am alive. I have no idea how to fly a plane. I had nothing to do with this… The name (listed by the FBI) is my name and the birth date is the same as mine, but I am not the one who BOMBED the World Trade Center in New York.Abdul Aziz Al-Omari – Telegraph 23rd September 2001 and Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.

Al-Omari has since been found in Saudi Arabia and is apparently cleared in the case” – New York Times

Which of these sounds more like a far-fetched conspiracy theory?

(1) A group of angry Muslims who lived in caves with no amenities came to America and took over 4 airplanes with razorblades and then drove these impossibly large planes with limited flight experience into the twin towers and the Pentagon like professional pilots. (Note several were found to be alive after 9/11.)

-Or-

(2) Bombs and demolition explosives were planted in the WTC towers 1,2, and 7 which brought them down at free fall speed into their own footprint: and a fairy tail-like cover-up story was delivered to the world that over 100 stories fell straight down into themselves, concrete and metal completely pulverized, defying all known architectural and natural physics.

The United States has not officially declared war since World War II. The media still fraudulently informs us that we are at war with Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan. But, instead we are at war with “terror”… an intangible, unfathomable, untouchable, and yet quite a politically useful thing, which has no country, no boundaries, no leader, no limits, no definition, and no rules. War crimes, torture, rendition, indefinite detention, human rights violations, and ordinarily criminal POW treatment are all un-punishable by the Geneva Conventions and Nuremburg Principles simply because we are not officially at war. 9-11 is the catalyst for this and for the legislation that protects these war criminals. 9-11 must be exposed as fraud (which would also expose the “war on terror” as a fraud) in order to charge those deserving with these crimes of war and the unprecedented use of torture. It would also be nice to know who blew up the twin towers, and see them hang!

PNAC (Project for the New American Century) was an American think tank based in Washington D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006. The PNAC’s stated goal was “…to promote American global leadership.” Its members included William Kristol, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, John McCain, Paul Wolfowitz, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Richard Perle, Steve Forbes, Robert B. Zoellick, John R. Bolton, Thomas Donnelly, and many others. Section V of ‘Rebuilding America’s Defenses’, entitled “Creating Tomorrow’s Dominant Force”, includes the sentence: “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”. PNAC supported the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 (bill H.R.4655), which President Clinton had signed into law. In its “Preface”, in highlighted boxes, Rebuilding America’s Defenses states that it aims to: ESTABLISH FOUR CORE MISSIONS for the U.S. military:

• Defend the American homeland;
• Fight and decisively win multiple, simultaneous major theater wars;
• Perform the “constabulary” duties associated with shaping the security environment in critical regions;
• Transform U.S. forces to exploit the “revolution in military affairs”…

FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) was entrusted with the sole responsibility for investigating the collapse of the WTC complex immediately after 9/11. Strangely, FEMA is not an investigative agency. FEMA, in its so-called investigations, actually coordinated the destruction of all WTC debris and evidence almost immediately after 9/11. The structural steel was quickly removed and loaded on ships for transport to be melted in blast furnaces in India and China, and then dumped in the ocean. Most would see this as blatant destruction of pertinent evidence. Meanwhile, FEMA’s investigation of the collapses consisted of assembling a group of volunteer investigators from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), dubbed the Building Performance Assessment Team (BPAT). This group was headed by W. Gene Corley, a structural engineer from Chicago who also led the fraudulent investigation of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. (Incidentally, two other bombs reported by multiple news stations and eyewitnesses, which were found by the bomb squad in the Federal Building and defused, were then never heard about again.) Except for an early “tourist trip”, the BPAT assessment volunteers were barred from ever officially entering Ground Zero. They did not see a single piece of steel until almost a month after the disaster. They had to guess at the original building locations of the few pieces of steel they saw. They were only allowed to collect 150 specific pieces of steel for further study (out of millions of pieces). BPAT’s final report called for “further investigation and analysis”, but the report was not released until after the whole WTC site had been cleared, or “scrubbed” of evidence.

–Ω–

While FEMA allocated only $600,000 for the BPAT study, and didn’t allocate any funding for independent or non-biased investigations, NIST’s “Federal Building and Fire Safety Investigation” was funded with an initial budget of $16 million. NIST’s results strongly indicate a cover-up. NIST avoids describing, let alone explaining, the “collapse” of each Tower after they were “poised for collapse.” Thus, NIST avoids answering the question their investigation was tasked with answering: how did the Towers collapse? NIST describes the Twin Towers without reference to the engineering history of other steel-framed buildings, and separates its analysis of WTC 7 into a separate report. By treating them in isolation, NIST hides just how completely different the alleged collapses of these three buildings are. In its own report, NIST reveals that it “adjusted the input” of variables in tests beyond the visual evidence of what actually happened in order to reinforce and save its own hypothesis. NIST also avoids disclosing the evidence of the unexplained sulfidation documented in Appendix C of the original FEMA “Building Performance Study”, which was described by the New York Times as “perhaps the deepest mystery uncovered in the investigation.”

–Ω–

The actual NIST investigation into 9/11 didn’t officially begin until Aug. 21, 2002. But the panel wasn’t official until the NCST (National Construction Safety Team) Act was signed into law on October 1, 2002, by President Bush. This act authorized the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish teams to investigate building failures. The final report on the collapses of WTC 1 and 2 was issued on Oct. 26, 2005. The investigation of the collapse of WTC 7 was completed separately in 2008. One must ask why it took over 365 days to start an official investigation into the most heinous crime in American history. The average time for starting investigations is 1 week. Just think of all the evidence that was lost and covered up in that more than 1-year time. On a personal note: I don’t think it was coincidence that it took NIST 4 and 7 years respectively to release these reports. By that time, by now, most people have or are ready to put the “whole 9/11 thing” behind them. While time doesn’t heal, it does remove the urgency. Thus, I’m sure that most people would have taken any report, no matter how improbable or ridiculous, as the official story. Not that they read it in the first place. But remember, the Patriot Acts and other tyrannical legislation, permissible torture, and indefinite detention without a trial, are law now because of this infamous event. And these laws and acts will affect every one of us eventually. And so, forgetting 9/11 or putting it behind us is not really an option now, is it?

–Ω–

In March of 2007, an extensive set of detailed architectural drawings of the World Trade Center became public through the actions of a whistleblower that worked for the Silverstein Group in 2002 that proved beyond any doubt that the official reports into the collapse of the towers misrepresented their construction. The blueprints provided consist of 261 drawings, included detailed plans for the North Tower (WTC 1), the World Trade Center foundation and basement, and the TV mast on top of the North Tower. The blueprints show that FEMA’s report was inaccurate in stating that core columns were “freestanding” when in fact large horizontal beams cross-connected the core columns in a three-dimensional matrix of thick steel. The NIST report into the collapses has also been proven inaccurate by the blueprints, proving the sixteen columns on the long faces of the cores shared the same dimensions for most of each Tower’s height. These omitted and distorted facts serve to render the official reports extremely questionable and deserving of a new and impartial investigation. Translation: these beams would have to be cut for the buildings to fall with almost no resistance, like they did.

–Ω–

More evidence of misleading and purposely misrepresented evidence was thus shown by FEMA and NIST. Prior to the release of the detailed architectural drawings in 2007, ‘9/11 Research’ published the Master Plan, dated December 16, 1963. This was a generic blueprint drawing of the WTC prior to its construction, which did not show structural details such as column dimensions. It did, however, show an arrangement of core columns that was later changed when the towers were constructed. The obsolete core column arrangement indicated in the “Master Plan” has been reproduced in other publications such as the book ‘Multi-Storey Buildings in Steel’. FEMA and NIST’s purposeful reference to these Master Plan drawings pre-dating construction, with the complicit knowledge of their inaccuracies and later changes are just more reasons to dismiss these investigations as fraud and fund a new independent investigation.

James Quintiere, Ph.D. – former Chief of the Fire Science Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), has called for an independent review of NIST’s investigation into the collapses of the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11. Dr. Quintiere made his plea during his presentation, “Questions on the WTC Investigations” at the 2007 World Fire Safety Conference. “I wish that there would be a peer review of this,” he said, referring to the NIST investigation. “I think all the records that NIST has assembled should be archived. I would really like to see someone else take a look at what they’ve done; both structurally and from a fire point of view… I think the official conclusion that NIST arrived at is questionable… Let’s look at real alternatives that might have been the cause of the collapse of the World Trade Towers and how that relates to the official cause and what’s the significance of one cause versus another.” Dr. Quintiere is considered one of the world’s leading fire science researchers and safety engineers.

“Spoliation of a fire (crime) scene is a basis for destroying a legal case in an investigation. Most of the steel was discarded, although the key elements of the core steel were demographically labeled. A careful reading of the NIST report shows that they have no evidence that the temperatures they predict as necessary for failure are corroborated by findings of the little steel debris they have. Why hasn’t NIST declared that this spoliation of the steel was a gross error?” – Question posed to NIST by James Quintiere, Ph.D.

–Ω–

Each of the Twin Towers was pulverized, turned to dust, and totally destroyed in a matter of seconds. In the history of the world there has never been another instance of a steel framed building or skyscraper collapsing from fire. The first and second instance of this was recorded on September 11, 2001 with the collapse at freefall speed of the twin towers. The third instance of this was when WTC 7 collapsed at freefall speed into its own footprint that evening. No airplane had hit WTC 7. Explosions described by firefighters and eyewitnesses as bombs were reported just prior to the WTC 7 collapse.

–Ω–

In addition to the Twin Towers and WTC 7, the World Trade Center complex held buildings 3,4,5, and 6. All of these buildings were severely damaged, first by falling rubble from the twin tower collapses, and then by fires that burned for many hours throughout the entirety of the buildings. Though these buildings were severely thrashed almost beyond recognition, they did not collapse. Yet before collapsing, WTC 7 was hardly damaged at all from debris, and its fires were only sporadic on a few floors, and were oxygen starved (low temperature) throughout the building itself. How is this possible?

Prior to the 9/11 attacks, insiders trading “put options” were placed on United and American Airlines stocks between September 6th and September 10th 2001, at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. “Put options” are bets that a stock will fall in value in the near future. The owner has the option of buying the stock at a lower rate and then selling them at the highest rate, thus earning a quick windfall profit. Also, a stock option usually costs only a fraction of the actual current stock price due to the risk of a total loss. The put options placed on the two airline stocks were reportedly six to eleven times higher than normal on these days. Other unusual “put option” activity was registered with three European reinsurance firms, Germany Re, Swiss Re, and AXA of France, in addition to World Trade Center occupant Morgan Stanley Dean Witter. This either means that these companies had insider information about the events of 9/11, or were told that their values would drop soon. Either way, this is illegal and treasonous. Martha Stewart has got nothing on these crooks!

At least 17 countries warned the United States regarding intelligence about an imminent attack on America prior to 9/11/01. The cover of the FEMA response manual printed in 1997 and titled, “Emergency Response to Terrorism: A Self-Study”, depicted the World Trade Centers’ twin towers in cross hairs. The Military District of Washington D.C. planned for and simulated a plane crash just like the Pentagon Attack in their “Operation Mascal” planning exercise on October 24, 2000. A Minnesota FBI agent investigating Zacarias Moussaoui testified that he notified the Secret Service weeks before Sept. 11 that a terror team might hijack a plane and “hit the nation’s capital.”

• “There, ah, were, ah, no warning signs that I’m aware of…– Robert S. Mueller, FBI Director under Bush, September 17, 2001, in a press conference.

• “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that they would try to use an airplane as a missile; a high-jacked airplane as a missile…” – Condoleezza Rice, as National Security Advisor in a press conference shortly after 9/11.

• “Nobody in our government at least, and I don’t think the prior government that could envision flying airplanes into buildings.” – George W. Bush, as President of the United States in a press conference, shortly after 9/11.

• “No specific threat involving really, ah, domestic operation or involving, ah, what happened obviously, ah, the cities, the airliners and so forth…Dick Cheney, as Vice-President, September 16th, in a television interview.

• “Regrettably, the tragic events of 9/11 were never anticipated or exercised.” – Gen. Ralph Eberhart, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and N.O.R.A.D. commander, as reported to USA Today.

USA Today reports that in the 2 years before the attacks of September 11th, N.O.R.A.D conducted exercises using high-jacked airliners as weapons, and one target was the world trade center.” – Peter Jennings, ABC News.

What the subject has in his mind is that he will board any American commercial aircraft pretending to be an ordinary passenger. Then he will hijack [the] said aircraft, control its cockpit and dive it at the CIA headquarters. Other buildings targeted: the Pentagon and the World Trade Center.” – Report dated January 20, 1995. Philippine police say this document and others outlining three terrorist plots were given to the FBI in 1995 after investigators here busted a terrorist cell. Two attacks — to assassinate the Pope and to bomb U.S. planes — were foiled, but parts of the last and most ambitious plan, Philippine police say, became reality six years later. Reported on CNN March 11, 2002.

When a crime has been committed, any good investigator would ask the question:

Who benefited? So… first, who didn’t benefit from 9/11?

Saddam Husain – lost his dictatorship, his country, his power, and was executed, not that he had anything to do with 9/11.

Osama Bin Laden – lost everything, including his freedom and the protection afforded him by the Taliban prior to 9/11. He’ll never be free again, and will have to hide forever. He can no longer visit other countries for medical care, since those countries would be accused of harboring a known fugitive and “terrorist”.

Al Qaeda – was created, funded and armed by the C.I.A. in the 1980’s for the purposes of fighting off a Russian invasion of Afghanistan. Since 9/11, this or any other group would find it impossible to carry out terrorist attacks anywhere in the world, since 9/11 was the catalyst for the Patriot Acts, which allow our government to spy and listen to any phone or computer communications without limit, including yours. This would seriously undermine any group’s ability to function as a terrorist cell.

In conclusion, all of the usual suspects of 9/11 gained absolutely nothing from 9/11. In fact… they lost everything.

–Ω–

So… Who then, actually benefited from 9/11?

Larry Silverstein – He became the leaseholder of the World Trade Center just a few weeks before 9/11, purchasing it for 15 million dollars. He inherited a mandatory asbestos removal problem, which would have cost over 1 billion dollars to complete in the buildings. Also, the twin towers had a low occupancy rate, with many offices un-rented. Before he signed the lease, Silverstein reworked the insurance policy to specifically cover “terrorist attacks”. After 9/11, he received 7 billion dollars as a settlement from his insurance policy. That’s a 6.85 billion dollar profit!

PNAC – This Neo-con manifesto, created and then published less than 12 months prior to 9/11, included the following goals: to transform America into tomorrows dominant force and global constabulary unchallenged by the U.N. and the rest of the world, to abandon the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, to establish permanent military bases in the Middle-East (against the constitution), regime change in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan, and almost all other goals stated in the manifesto which came to fruition only after 9/11. PNAC was like a playbook for the events following 9/11.

Dick Cheney and Halliburton – Former vice-president and former CEO of Halliburton, Dick Cheney still receives a multi-year differed salary package from Halliburton. In a major conflict of interest, this conglomerate company and its subsidiary KBR were granted multi-no-bid contracts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and at home. In Iraq, KBR leased $40,000 trucks for 5 years, each costing approximately $270,000 at the end of the lease, charged $100 per load of laundry for soldiers who weren’t allowed to do it themselves, and charged the Iraqi government as much as $25,000 per month for each of as many as 1,800 fuel trucks that were to deliver gasoline to Iraq after the 2003 invasion, though the trucks often spent days or weeks sitting idle on the border, and were abandoned in the desert for such things as flat tires. The company’s policy is called “cost-plus”, meaning that the more KBR spends, the more profit they make. KBR recently received a no-bid government contract to build internment camps in the United States as well. Halliburton’s stock has increased greatly since the invasions started. Dick Cheney was a member of the CFR – Council On Foreign Relations before becoming vice president and still working for Halliburton.

Bush and the Weapons Industry – Since the attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan, the weapons and arms industry has reaped billions of dollars in profits from military contracts and foreign buyers. With the goal being to continue the fighting and bombing as long as possible, as in Vietnam, the weapons industry will continue to make guns and bombs and sell them for huge profits to our government. The Bush family, as part of the Carlyle Group, has gained huge profits from the companies manufacture of weapons and military bases since 9/11.

Oil Companies – Over 60% of the world’s oil fields are in the Middle-East. The United States is by far the biggest consumer of this oil, bar none. Without gaining control of these oil fields, the U.S. economy would collapse, since oil is sold almost exclusively in dollars (petro-dollars) and not foreign currencies. It must control the supply to other countries as well, in order to keep the oil sold in dollars. U.S. oil interests have wanted to build an oil pipeline in the Middle-East since the 1980’s from the Caspian oil fields through Afghanistan. However, the occupying power in Afghanistan, the Taliban, would not allow this to be built. Only 1 day after the United States installed its own government into Afghanistan after 9/11, a contract was signed to construct this pipeline that the oil companies so desperately wanted.

The United States Government – 9/11 gave the elitists running our country inside and outside of our government the opportunity to establish unprecedented unconstitutional and tyrannical legislation in the form of The Patriot Acts. This act allows the government to spy on the communications of every citizen, to sample the DNA of any person convicted of any crime, and it allows for the arrest and indefinite detention of any citizen on suspicion, without a warrant, without probable cause, in secret, without notification of anyone including next of kin – and it takes away your right to a lawyer. Many other documents, acts, and laws have been passed that would never have been allowed prior to 9/11 and the “war on terror”, and which completely destroy the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and even give the federal government new powers of regulation and jurisdiction over individual states. The Homeland Security agency was established after 9/11, and is now sponsoring the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, training them to fight domestic terrorism, similar to the Hitler Youth. By the way, we are all terrorists according to the Patriot Act! Also, please keep in mind that when you elect a President of the United States, you are not just voting for one man, you are voting for the hundreds of appointed (unelected) positions in the highest offices of government and beyond that this one man appoints. Chief of Staff, Secretary’s of State, Defense, Treasury, etc… All of these have conflicts of interest before being appointed, having worked in the industries they are selected to regulate, which is why no-bid contracts are awarded. Note: Obama’s largest campaign contributors were the banks that received the billions of dollars in “bail-outs” from the so-called financial crisis. This is politics; complete corporate corruption on a global scale.

“Project Achilles: Cell Phone Experiments in a Light Aircraft” – conducted by A.K. Dewdney. This was an experiment with several brands of cell phones and their call connection success rates at differing altitudes, up to 8,000 feet. Almost all of these phones failed to connect, or were unintelligible and dropped at this height. This is primarily due to the fact that cell phone towers extend and receive their signals horizontally, not vertically into the air – since there are no people floating around up there and angels have a direct line… Yet we are expected to believe that multiple, crystal clear calls were connected from 36,000 feet in the air, more than four times that tests altitude. This is impossible, as anybody who’s tried to make a call from cruising altitude with a cell phone can attest. Interestingly, on July 15, 2004, American Airlines installed its first cell phone-receiving station onto one of its jets. For the first time, passengers were able to make calls from 36,000 feet in the air. This was not possible on 9/11.

–Ω–

There are a surprising amount of companies and individuals who either appeared to have or admitted to have prior knowledge of the attacks of 9/11:

Zim American Israeli Shipping Co. broke a lease in order to vacate the World Trade Center just days before the attack. Zim’s lease extended through the end of the year and the termination cost was $50,000.

• At Odigo, the instant messaging service, two Israeli employees received e-mail messages two hours before the first World Trade Center assault, predicting the attack. Only 1 person of Israeli decent died that day.

San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown admitted to having received a warning not to fly on 9/11 from what he described as his airport security late Monday evening, just hours before the attack.

Salman Rushdie, who is under the continuous protection of Scotland Yard, was prevented from flying on September 11th, 2001.

Jim Pierce, cousin of President Bush, was scheduled to attend a conference on the 105th floor of the South Tower on 9/11/01, where his company’s New York offices were based. But the conference was moved across the street to the Millennium Hotel, because, the story goes, the group was too large for the WTC!

• Newsweek reported: On September 10… a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly cancelled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns.

• According to the New York Times, Silverstein Properties had planned to meet on 9/11/01 on the 88th floor of one of the towers to “discuss what to do in the event of a terrorist attack,” but cancelled the meeting Monday night (9/10) “because one participant could not attend.”

On Sept. 10, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war – but not on foreign terrorists… “The adversary’s closer to home. It’s the Pentagon bureaucracy,” he said. Rumsfeld said the money wasted by the military poses a serious threat. “In fact, it could be said it’s a matter of life and death,” said Rumsfeld. “According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions…” $2.3 trillion — that’s $8,000 for every man, woman and child in America. Rumsfeld promised change, but the next day on 9/11, the world changed – and in the rush to fund the new war on terrorism, the war on corruption and waste seems to have been forgotten.

Michael Chertoff was the second United States Secretary of Homeland Security under President George W. Bush, and co-author of the USA Patriot Act. After 9/11, the families of the victims from that day were given a choice. They could settle out of court, meaning quicker payouts for funerals and the raising of their families, as well as satiating their greed with something akin to instant gratification – or they could wage a costly court battle against the government, involving a lengthy investigation into the causes and culprits of 9/11. Option #2 would have taken a very long time, with no guarantees of financial rewards. Therefore, in the end, at least 97% of the victim’s families chose to settle out of court: choosing money instead of an proper investigation. Thanks to government lawyers like Chertoff, not a single plaintiff has been heard in court, and no government official has been charged with even gross negligence in the case of 9/11.

I could go on… and on… and on… and on… and on… but I think this is enough for our purposes. All we* want is a new investigation, by unbiased investigators, with no ties to any of the above mentioned groups, organizations, governments, or corporations, and with no financial compensation other than billed hours, under penalty of treason! Is that really so much to ask? We have all of this overwhelming evidence. Isn’t that enough?

 

* By we, I mean the group which has recently been dubbed the “Truthers” by the main-stream media. Somehow, the word ‘truth‘ was actually spun into having a negative connotation. This is how rediculously obscene our media has become… and it works! For when you hear the truth, your first thought is “oh, that’s just conspiracy theory!” No… it’s truth. Provable, documented, living truth. Perhaps this brainwashing works because of all the television stations, radio stations, movie production studios, newspapers, magazines, and other forms of mainstream media out there, almost all are all owned by a conglomerate of 6 differant companies. This is commonly reffered to as a monopoly – a monopoly with the most dier and purposeful of consequences… a completely ignorant public.

Can You Support The Troops Without Supporting The War?


“I don’t support the war, but I support the troops.”

She said it smugly and with an unaccountable confidence. For a moment I actually imagined that she had thought long and hard about what she was saying and understood its implications. She was convinced that it was somehow reasonable to be against the war, while conversely being in some surreal acknowledgment of the validity of the actions of the soldiers being used to fight in that war.

“Mom,” I said in an unbelieving tone, “Do you have any idea what that even means?”

“Huh?”

So, what does this phrase mean anyway: I don’t support the war… but I support the troops?

Well, this is the question I am going to attempt to answer here. It is a statement of passion and of fact. It is also as contradictory of an assertion as I have ever heard in my life!

First, let’s break this statement up into three parts and examine how these two declarations correspond with each other:

1)    ‘I don’t support the war.’ – This is a very cut and dry sentence. It translates very easily. Whoever says this probably does not feel that the war is relevant and/or that it is not worth the cost, both financially and in the number of human lives being lost. It can be emotionally driven. It can be logically driven. It can be intellectually driven. It is at least a somewhat educated response to a situation that, in the eyes of the person who says it, does not believe that war is either justified or necessary for the reasons it is being fought.

2)    ‘I support the troops.’ – Once again, this is a very cut and dry sentence. It translates fairly easily. Whoever says this believes that our men and women in the military should have the equipment, medical care, training, and funding to make sure that they are protected and comfortable, and to ensure that their job be both honorable and justifiable. It is a confirmation of faith that the troops are pursuing in good conscience the freedom of our nation, and helping to free others. It can be emotionally driven. It can be logically driven. It can be intellectually driven. And it can be at least somewhat of an educated response to the fact that our boys and girls in the military are in harms way and should be protected by having the necessary tools to do their jobs. It is also if I may, a statement that one supports the actions of the troops: a statement of faith, honor and justification for their occupation of a foreign country and for the assault, imprisonment, and killing of its people (including civilian men, women and children).

3)    ‘But’ – In the dictionary, this word means: however, although, other than, except, excluding, and save for. It is used as a connecting word to express conditions or reasons why a previous statement is not quite accurate or complete.

On the surface, these seem like two wonderful concepts. And separately, they express both the patriotism and the will and opinion of the majority of our citizenry. But now, let’s put them back together and examine what one phrase means when preceded by the other.

I don’t support the war, but… I support the troops.

Is it just me… or does this statement ultimately boil down to a paradox? Other words that come to mind: inconsistent, illogical, irrational, ironic, incongruous, incompatible, absurd, contradictory, opposite, unsound, odd, and just plain stupid.

These two concepts are noble in and of themselves. But like oil and water, air and pollution, church and state… They do not belong in the same sentence. What does this statement mean? Well, first let’s examine the war itself:

The war (occupation) in Iraq and Afghanistan is one of the most horrific human rights violations and war crimes in our history. The fact that many thousands of American troops have been killed in the Middle East has been plastered all over media headlines, all of the time (some Veterans groups estimate that there are over 70,000 U.S. deceased when taking into consideration deaths in V.A. hospitals following combat, post-traumatic suicide, and whether or not our soldiers were shot in the back or the front of the head). But what is rarely talked about are the well over 1 million innocent Iraqi, Afghani, and now Pakistani men, women, and children who have been murdered in the name of false democracy, and the tens of millions who have been displaced as a result of our so-called humanitarian efforts in the Middle-East. We all know that the government lied about Iraq harboring weapons of mass destruction. We all should know by know that oil and the control of it’s distribution is the reason we are in the Middle East. We know that Osama Bin Laden lived in Afghanistan, not Iraq. And we now know that our troops are guarding the poppy fields in Afghanistan to ensure mass production for U.S. and world consumption of government controlled opium products, including many common opiate-based pharmaceuticals, anti-depressants, anti-anxieties, and the highly addictive and illegal street drug heroin. Yet even against our most logical sense of reasoning, most of us still hold on to the preposterous theory that a guy, hiding out in a bunch of caves with no electricity and virtually no support, masterminded a plot to crash airplanes into the most highly guarded section of the United States’ airspace, systematically fooling N.O.R.A.D. for the first time in history into thinking it was only a drill, and then escaping the clutches of what is supposed to be the best trained army in the world for the past 8 years. Talk about a conspiracy theory… This is so absurd that I can hardly write it without laughing! The men and women responsible for it are still in power, despite the fact that overwhelming evidence is easily found in books, the internet, radio, and even on mainstream television, all showing a massive conspiracy and cover-up on the part of this government and all of its acronymic organizations.

And now back to the original question. What does this statement mean anyway: ‘I don’t support the war, but I support the troops.’

Well, it could be the most potent marketing strategy ever conceived, complete with yellow ribbons, tea-shirts, and wristbands. Even if we say we don’t support the war, we have all been duped into saying we support the troops. For, if we don’t support the troops we would be evil, un-American, and unpatriotic. These are the names we’re told to call each other as we self-police ourselves and keep one another in line.

And so the conundrum now presents itself, sinister and ugly as it is. The moral of the story is this…

→ The brainwashed, media-driven American people are unwittingly, and quite submissively forced to support the war, because they support the troops. Brilliant!

What are we thinking… and what do people mean when they say it?

Well, I’m not sure anybody has thought this through. It is just mindlessly repeated as a parrot might squawk a phrase it has heard over and over and over again. But in this case, we are the animals being trained by the repetitious media on our televisions, in our movies, and on our radios. I can only assume that people mean that they don’t support torture, but they support the torturers. They don’t support murder, but support the murderers. They believe that molestation and rape is bad, unless our soldiers are using it as a tool to terrorize “insurgents” and their families into submission. They don’t believe war is the answer, but they do not question the architects of that war or their methods. They don’t support nation building, but support the demolition and construction teams, and the vastly expensive no-bid contracts given to private corporations who are making fortunes from the American tax payers by wasting and spending as much money as they possibly can in their “cost-plus” compensation plans after contributing heavily to the pre-determined winners of political campaigns. (See the documentary: Iraq For Sale)

This is absolute hypocrisy mixed with a heaping portion of escapism topped off with a healthy dose of ignorance.

Here is just one small example of how much we actually support the troops:

There are over 200,000 homeless war veterans in the United States.

“On every night, 200,000 people who have put on the uniform and served this country sleep homeless on the streets,” said Aaron Glantz, a journalist who has been covering the stories of US military vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. (Source: Pacifica, Middle-East Online)

How is this in anyway supporting the troops?

Most good citizens who hear information such as this will inherently just go on with their incessant consuming, truly enjoying their ignorance while thousands more innocents die at the hands of the troops they unwittingly support: buying their sweatshop-manufactured clothing and enjoying imported foodstuffs packaged in poisonous plastic, ready-to-heat-and-eat containers, while the economy of the country of export enjoys mass starvation and food riots as they fall victim to the debt-for-land and debt-for-oil schemes of our illegitimate government. Is this the American dream: pure, unadulterated gluttony and ignorance?
For those who still believe that we are in Iraq and Afghanistan for altruistic and patriotic reasons, here is a little known fact that might change your mind: Osama Bin Laden, the supposed mastermind behind 9/11, is indeed on the United States most wanted terrorist list. But never once in the eight years since September 11, 2001 has he ever been charged with any crime related to that day. That’s because there is absolutely evidence linking this man to the crimes of 9/11. Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself… On the governments own website (Go to: http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/topten/fugitives/laden.htm).

So, do you support the war… despite the fact that it is being fought under false pretenses and government manufactured terrorism?
Do you support the troops… who are killing innocent men, women, and children every day while ‘just following orders’ and then killing themselves because they see the faces of their innocent victims in their own daydreams and nightmares?

I hope that you can open your hearts and expand your minds past the empty tube in your living room and start to realize that, through heavy repetition and marketing strategies, you have been sold an idea that doesn’t make sense: that it is your patriotic duty to support our troops who are deployed in an illegal war that you do not support in the first place! Never be afraid to seek or speak the truth. For who else but a politician and a priest could have made up the rule that speaking about politics and religion in mixed company should be avoided. Get angry, speak out and inform others that these occupations are against everything the principles and doctrines of this country, its founders, and its Constitution stand for.

And the next time you are asked what you think about the war and occupation of Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Pakistan, do your fellow Americans and Middle-Easterners a favor… be original and think before you speak!
